Psalm 105

Psalm 105

Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
    make known among the nations what he has done.
Sing to him, sing praise to him;
    tell of all his wonderful acts.
Glory in his holy name;
    let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Look to the Lord and his strength;
    seek his face always.

Remember the wonders he has done,
    his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,
you his servants, the descendants of Abraham,
    his chosen ones, the children of Jacob.
He is the Lord our God;
    his judgments are in all the earth.

He remembers his covenant forever,
    the promise he made, for a thousand generations,
the covenant he made with Abraham,
    the oath he swore to Isaac.
10 He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree,
    to Israel as an everlasting covenant:
11 “To you I will give the land of Canaan
    as the portion you will inherit.”

12 When they were but few in number,
    few indeed, and strangers in it,
13 they wandered from nation to nation,
    from one kingdom to another.
14 He allowed no one to oppress them;
    for their sake he rebuked kings:
15 “Do not touch my anointed ones;
    do my prophets no harm.”

16 He called down famine on the land
    and destroyed all their supplies of food;
17 and he sent a man before them—
    Joseph, sold as a slave.
18 They bruised his feet with shackles,
    his neck was put in irons,
19 till what he foretold came to pass,
    till the word of the Lord proved him true.
20 The king sent and released him,
    the ruler of peoples set him free.
21 He made him master of his household,
    ruler over all he possessed,
22 to instruct his princes as he pleased
    and teach his elders wisdom.

23 Then Israel entered Egypt;
    Jacob resided as a foreigner in the land of Ham.
24 The Lord made his people very fruitful;
    he made them too numerous for their foes,
25 whose hearts he turned to hate his people,
    to conspire against his servants.
26 He sent Moses his servant,
    and Aaron, whom he had chosen.
27 They performed his signs among them,
    his wonders in the land of Ham.
28 He sent darkness and made the land dark—
    for had they not rebelled against his words?
29 He turned their waters into blood,
    causing their fish to die.
30 Their land teemed with frogs,
    which went up into the bedrooms of their rulers.
31 He spoke, and there came swarms of flies,
    and gnats throughout their country.
32 He turned their rain into hail,
    with lightning throughout their land;
33 he struck down their vines and fig trees
    and shattered the trees of their country.
34 He spoke, and the locusts came,
    grasshoppers without number;
35 they ate up every green thing in their land,
    ate up the produce of their soil.
36 Then he struck down all the firstborn in their land,
    the firstfruits of all their manhood.
37 He brought out Israel, laden with silver and gold,
    and from among their tribes no one faltered.
38 Egypt was glad when they left,
    because dread of Israel had fallen on them.

39 He spread out a cloud as a covering,
    and a fire to give light at night.
40 They asked, and he brought them quail;
    he fed them well with the bread of heaven.
41 He opened the rock, and water gushed out;
    it flowed like a river in the desert.

42 For he remembered his holy promise
    given to his servant Abraham.
43 He brought out his people with rejoicing,
    his chosen ones with shouts of joy;
44 he gave them the lands of the nations,
    and they fell heir to what others had toiled for—
45 that they might keep his precepts
    and observe his laws.

Praise the Lord.[a]

  1. Psalm 105:45 Hebrew Hallelu Yah

Chinese Contemporary Bible (Simplified)

诗篇 105

上帝和祂的子民

1你们要称谢耶和华,呼求祂的名,
在列邦传扬祂的作为。
要歌颂、赞美祂,
述说祂一切奇妙的作为。
要以祂的圣名为荣,
愿寻求耶和华的人都欢欣。
要寻求耶和华和祂的能力,
时常来到祂面前。
5-6 祂仆人亚伯拉罕的后裔,
祂所拣选的雅各的子孙啊,
要记住祂所行的神迹奇事和祂口中的判词。
祂是我们的上帝耶和华,
祂在普天下施行审判。
祂永远记得祂的约,
历经千代也不忘祂的应许,
就是祂与亚伯拉罕所立的约,
向以撒所起的誓。
10 祂把这约定为律例赐给雅各,
定为永远的约赐给以色列。
11 祂说:“我必把迦南赐给你,
作为你的产业。”
12 那时他们人丁稀少,
在当地寄居。
13 他们在异国他乡流离飘零。
14 耶和华不容人压迫他们,
还为他们的缘故责备君王,
15 说:“不可难为我膏立的人,
也不可伤害我的先知。”
16 祂在那里降下饥荒,
断绝一切食物的供应。
17 祂派一个人率先前往,
这人就是被卖为奴隶的约瑟。
18 他被戴上脚镣,套上枷锁,
19 直到后来他的预言应验,
耶和华的话试炼了他。
20 埃及王下令释放他,
百姓的首领给他自由,
21 派他执掌朝政,
管理国中的一切,
22 有权柄管束王的大臣,
将智慧传授王的长老。

23 以色列来到埃及,
寄居在含地。
24 耶和华使祂的子民生养众多,
比他们的仇敌还要强盛。
25 祂使仇敌憎恨他们,
用诡计虐待他们。
26 祂派遣祂的仆人摩西和祂拣选的亚伦,
27 在埃及行神迹,
在含地行奇事。
28 祂降下黑暗,使黑暗笼罩那里;
他们没有违背祂的话。
29 祂使埃及的水变成血,
鱼都死去;
30 又使国中到处是青蛙,
王宫禁院也不能幸免。
31 祂一发命令,
苍蝇蜂拥而至,虱子遍满全境。
32 祂使雨变成冰雹,
遍地电光闪闪。
33 祂击倒他们的葡萄树和无花果树,
摧毁他们境内的树木。
34 祂一发声,
就飞来无数蝗虫和蚂蚱,
35 吃尽他们土地上的植物,
吃尽他们田间的出产。
36 祂又击杀他们境内所有的长子,
就是他们年轻力壮时生的长子。
37 祂带领以色列人携金带银地离开埃及,
各支派中无人畏缩。
38 埃及人惧怕他们,
乐见他们离去。

39 祂铺展云彩为他们遮荫,
晚上用火给他们照明。
40 他们祈求,
祂就赐下鹌鹑,降下天粮,
叫他们饱足。
41 祂使磐石裂开、涌出水来,
在干旱之地奔流成河。
42 因为祂没有忘记祂赐给仆人亚伯拉罕的神圣应许。
43 祂带领自己的子民欢然离去,
祂所拣选的百姓欢唱着前行。
44 祂把列国的土地赐给他们,
使他们获得别人的劳动成果。
45 祂这样做是要使他们持守祂的命令,
遵行祂的律法。
你们要赞美耶和华!
