Psalm 135

Psalm 135

Praise the Lord.[a]

Praise the name of the Lord;
    praise him, you servants of the Lord,
you who minister in the house of the Lord,
    in the courts of the house of our God.

Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;
    sing praise to his name, for that is pleasant.
For the Lord has chosen Jacob to be his own,
    Israel to be his treasured possession.

I know that the Lord is great,
    that our Lord is greater than all gods.
The Lord does whatever pleases him,
    in the heavens and on the earth,
    in the seas and all their depths.
He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth;
    he sends lightning with the rain
    and brings out the wind from his storehouses.

He struck down the firstborn of Egypt,
    the firstborn of people and animals.
He sent his signs and wonders into your midst, Egypt,
    against Pharaoh and all his servants.
10 He struck down many nations
    and killed mighty kings –
11 Sihon king of the Amorites,
    Og king of Bashan,
    and all the kings of Canaan –
12 and he gave their land as an inheritance,
    an inheritance to his people Israel.

13 Your name, Lord, endures for ever,
    your renown, Lord, through all generations.
14 For the Lord will vindicate his people
    and have compassion on his servants.

15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
    made by human hands.
16 They have mouths, but cannot speak,
    eyes, but cannot see.
17 They have ears, but cannot hear,
    nor is there breath in their mouths.
18 Those who make them will be like them,
    and so will all who trust in them.

19 All you Israelites, praise the Lord;
    house of Aaron, praise the Lord;
20 house of Levi, praise the Lord;
    you who fear him, praise the Lord.
21 Praise be to the Lord from Zion,
    to him who dwells in Jerusalem.

Praise the Lord.

詩篇 135

讚美之歌

11-2 你們要讚美耶和華!
讚美祂的名!
耶和華的僕人啊,
在耶和華的殿中,
在我們上帝的院宇中事奉的人啊,
你們要讚美祂!
你們要讚美耶和華,
因為祂是美善的;
你們要歌頌祂的名,
因為祂的名美好無比。
祂揀選雅各做祂的子民,
揀選以色列作祂的產業。
我知道耶和華偉大,
我們的主超越一切神明。
耶和華在天上、地下、海洋、
深淵按自己的旨意行事。
祂使雲霧從地極上升,
發出電光,帶來雨水,
從祂的倉庫帶出風來。

祂擊殺了埃及人的長子和頭胎的牲畜。
祂在埃及行神蹟奇事,
懲罰法老和他的一切臣僕。
10 祂毀滅列國,
殺戮強大的君王:
11 亞摩利王西宏、巴珊王噩和迦南所有的君王。
12 祂把這些國家的土地賜給祂的以色列子民,
作為他們的產業。
13 耶和華啊,
你的名永遠長存,
你的威名傳到萬代。
14 因為耶和華必為祂的子民伸冤,
憐憫祂的僕人。

15 外族人的神像是人用金銀造的。
16 它們有口不能說,有眼不能看,
17 有耳不能聽,口中毫無氣息。
18 那些製造它們、信靠它們的人也會和它們一樣。
19 以色列人啊,
你們要稱頌耶和華!
亞倫的子孫啊,
你們要稱頌耶和華!
20 利未的子孫啊,
你們要稱頌耶和華!
你們敬畏耶和華的人都要稱頌祂![a]
21 要讚美錫安的耶和華,
讚美住在耶路撒冷的耶和華。
你們要讚美耶和華!
