Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

詩篇 116

感謝拯救之恩

1我愛耶和華,
因為祂垂聽了我的呼求和禱告。
因為祂垂聽我的祈求,
我一生都要向祂禱告。
死亡的繩索纏繞我,
陰間的恐怖籠罩我,
我被困苦和憂愁淹沒。
於是,我求告耶和華,
說:「耶和華啊,求你拯救我。」
耶和華仁慈、公義,
我們的上帝充滿憐憫。
耶和華保護心地單純的人,
危難之時祂救了我。
我的心啊,再次安寧吧,
因為耶和華恩待你。
祂救我的性命脫離死亡,
止住我眼中的淚水,
使我雙腳免於滑倒。
我要在世上事奉耶和華。
10 我相信,所以才說:
「我受盡了痛苦。」
11 我曾驚恐地說:
「人人都說謊。」
12 我拿什麼報答耶和華賜給我的一切恩惠呢?
13 我要為耶和華的拯救之恩而舉杯稱頌祂的名。
14 我要在耶和華的子民面前還我向祂許的願。

15 耶和華的眼目顧惜祂聖民的死亡。
16 耶和華啊!我是你的僕人,
是你的僕人,是你婢女的兒子。
你除去了我的鎖鏈。
17 我要向你獻上感恩祭,
呼求你的名。
18-19 我要在耶路撒冷,
在耶和華的殿中,
在耶和華的子民面前還我向祂許的願。

你們要讚美耶和華!

New Living Translation

Psalm 116

Psalm 116

I love the Lord because he hears my voice
    and my prayer for mercy.
Because he bends down to listen,
    I will pray as long as I have breath!
Death wrapped its ropes around me;
    the terrors of the grave[a] overtook me.
    I saw only trouble and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the Lord:
    “Please, Lord, save me!”
How kind the Lord is! How good he is!
    So merciful, this God of ours!
The Lord protects those of childlike faith;
    I was facing death, and he saved me.
Let my soul be at rest again,
    for the Lord has been good to me.
He has saved me from death,
    my eyes from tears,
    my feet from stumbling.
And so I walk in the Lord’s presence
    as I live here on earth!
10 I believed in you, so I said,
    “I am deeply troubled, Lord.”
11 In my anxiety I cried out to you,
    “These people are all liars!”
12 What can I offer the Lord
    for all he has done for me?
13 I will lift up the cup of salvation
    and praise the Lord’s name for saving me.
14 I will keep my promises to the Lord
    in the presence of all his people.

15 The Lord cares deeply
    when his loved ones die.
16 O Lord, I am your servant;
    yes, I am your servant, born into your household;
    you have freed me from my chains.
17 I will offer you a sacrifice of thanksgiving
    and call on the name of the Lord.
18 I will fulfill my vows to the Lord
    in the presence of all his people—
19 in the house of the Lord
    in the heart of Jerusalem.

Praise the Lord!
