| 1 你們要讚美耶和華！|
5 誰像耶和華──我們的 神呢？
| 1 Praise the LORD!|
Praise, O servants of the LORD,
Praise the name of the LORD!
2 Blessed be the name of the LORD
From this time forth and forevermore!
3 From the rising of the sun to its going down
The LORD’s name is to be praised.
4 The LORD is high above all nations,
His glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like the LORD our God,
Who dwells on high,
6 Who humbles Himself to behold
The things that are in the heavens and in the earth?
7 He raises the poor out of the dust,
And lifts the needy out of the ash heap,
8 That He may seat him with princes —
With the princes of His people.
9 He grants the barren woman a home,
Like a joyful mother of children.
Praise the LORD!
|詩 Psalm 113:3 從日出之地到日落之處，耶和華的名是應當讚美的！ From the rising of the sun to its going down, The LORD’s name is to be praised.|
|我們的神在萬民之上，祂從高天觀看天上地下的事，所有臨到我們的事祂都知道，即使大水氾濫的時候耶和華仍然坐著為王；但祂不是旁觀者，而是歷史的主宰，無論是貧寒窮乏人還是王子都俯伏在祂的權柄之下：祂使人卑微，也使人高貴。神樂意眷顧困苦的人，因此讓我們一無掛慮，凡事藉著禱告、祈求和感謝，將所要的都告訴神。撒拉因著信，九十歲還能懷孕生下以撒，從那裡衍生出神的選民以色列人；哈拿在耶和華面前傾心吐意地禱告，生下撒母耳，就是神所得著扭轉時代的器皿；瑪麗亞順服神的話語，誕下耶穌，就是神整個救贖計畫的中心！讚美神，沒有一個人是神不能拯救並使用的；讚美神，沒有一件事是神不能成就的。無論在何時何地，神的名都是應當稱頌的─讓我們隨時隨地都讚美神！||Our God is above all nations. He beholds things in heaven and on earth from high above, and knows every matter that comes to us - even when it floods, the LORD still sits enthroned as the King. However, He is not a spectator, rather, He is the master of history. Whether the poor, the needy or the princes, they all bow down under His authority: He humbles people and He exalts people. God is willing to bless people in hardship, so let us be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, present our requests to God. By faith Sarah became pregnant and gave birth to Isaac when she was 90 years old, from which came God's chosen people the Israelites; Hannah poured out her soul to the LORD in prayer, and gave birth to Samuel, who was God's vessel to revive a generation of people; Mary submitted to God's word, and gave birth to Jesus, who is the center of the whole redemption plan of God! Praise God, there is not a single person whom God cannot save and use; praise God, there is not a single thing that God cannot accomplish. At whatever time and in whatever place, the name of the LORD is to be praised - let us praise God at all times and in all places!|
