Enter his temple with songs of praise.
Give thanks to him and bless his name.

Indeed, how good is the Lord,
eternal his merciful love.
He is faithful from age to age.

I sing to you, O Lord.

People who slander others, people of proud looks,
these will not be my friends.

People who are good and do good,
these will be my friends.

101

我歌頌慈恩與公正。 ,我對你歌唱

我會努力行事無愧於心。

親愛的,請幫助我遠離損友


Psalm 102

O Lord, listen to my prayer in my distress.
Do not hide your face from me.

For my days are vanishing like smoke,
my bones burn away like a fire.

I forget to eat my bread.
My skin clings to my bones.

All day long my foes revile me.
Those who hate me use my name as a curse.

But you, O Lord, will endure for ever.
You will arise and have mercy on Sion.

You will hear the groans of the prisoners
and free those condemned to die.

I pray to you: "Do not take me away before my time has come,
you whose days last from age to age.

102

,在我困苦受難時,聆聽我的禱告。
不要對我掩藏你的臉。

因為我的日子將會如煙的消逝,
我的骸骨像火般燒掉

我忘記進食我的皮緊貼骨頭

我的仇敵整日辱駡我
那些僧恨我的人,用我的名字來咀咒

但你會永存萬 你會起來憐Sion

你會垂聽囚犯的呻吟並釋放被判死罪的人

我向祈求說:在我大限來臨前,
請不要帶我離世,你的歲月永無盡

Lord, please help people who are in great distress 

親愛的,請幫助處於困境的人們

who heals every one of your ills.

It is he who fills your life with good things,
renewing your youth like an eagle's life.

The Lord is compassion and love,
slow to anger and rich in mercy.

As the heavens are high above the earth
so strong is his love for those who love him.

As far as the East is from the West,
so far does he remove our sins.

As a father has compassion on his children,
the Lord has pity on all who love and honor him.

who heed the voice of his word.

You make springs gush forth in the valleys.
They give drink to all the animals of the field.

You make grass grow for the cattle
and plants to provide food for people.

You give us wine to cheer our hearts
and oil to make our faces shine.

You made the moon to mark the months.
The sun knows the time for its setting.

How many are your works, O Lord.
In wisdom you have made them all.

The earth is full of your riches
and the sea is swarming with life.

All things, great and small, look to you for food.

You renew the face of the earth.

I will sing to the Lord all my life.
May my thoughts be pleasing to him.

for he fills the hungry with good things.

living in darkness and gloom.

for he shatters the iron bars of prisons.

Calm down my soul, for the Lord has been good.
I will walk in the presence of the Lord in the land of the living.

How can I repay the Lord for his goodness to me?

Lord, you have loosened my bonds. I am your servant.

but the Lord was my helper.

The Lord is my strength and my song.
He is my saviour.

The Lord's right hand has triumphed.
His right hand has raised me up.

I shall not die, I shall live

Psalms 120, 121

I call to the Lord in the hour of my distress:
"Lord save me from people who speak with lying lips".

Long enough have I been dwelling with those who hate peace.
I am for peace, but they are for fighting.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains.
From where shall come my help?

My help shall come from the Lord
who made heaven and earth.

The Lord is our guard and our shade.
Day and night we shall not be afraid.

The Lord will guard our going and coming
both now and forever.

Psalm 123

To you have I lifted up my eyes,
you who dwell in the heavens.

My eyes, like the eyes of slaves
on the hand of their lords.

Like the eyes of a servant on the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes are on the Lord our God till he show us mercy.

Have mercy on us, Lord, have mercy.
We are filled with contempt.

Indeed all too full is our soul with the scorn of the rich,
with the proud man's disdain.

123

我剛舉目向你,你居住在諸天上。

我雙眼,如奴隸雙眼看望他們主人的手。

如婢女雙眼看望她女主人的手,所以我們
雙眼注視着我們的,直到他憐憫我們。

憐憫我們,,憐憫。 我們受盡鄙視。

驕傲者的欺凌。

Lord, please protect poor people 
from being exploited by rich people

,請保護窮人免被富人剝削


Psalm 124

"If the Lord had not been on our side",
this is Israel's song.

If the Lord had not been on our side
when people rose against us,

then would they have swallowed us alive
when they were angry with us.

Blessed be the Lord who did not let us become
a prey for their teeth.

Our life, like a bird, has escaped
from the snare of the hunter.

Indeed the snare has been broken
and we have escaped.

Our help is in the name of the Lord
who made heaven and earth. 

124

如果沒支持我們這是以色列的頌歌

如果沒支持我們,當人們起來攻擊我們,

那時他們會生吞我們當他們對我們發怒。

頌讚,他沒讓我們成為他們牙齒的獵物。

我們的生命,像鳥兒一樣逃脫獵人的圈套。

 of your protecting presence

Psalm 126

When the Lord delivered Zion from bondage,
it seemed like a dream.

Then was our mouth filled with laughter,
on our lips there were songs.

What marvels the Lord worked for us.
Indeed we were glad.

Those who are sowing in tears
will sing when they reap.

They go out, full of tears, carrying seed for the sowing.
They come back, full of song, carrying their sheaves.

126

從奴役中解救Sion時,這似一場夢。

那時我們滿口笑聲,我們的雙唇唱歌。

為我們作了何等奇事。 我們確實歡喜。

那些流著淚播種的人,收成時會歌唱。

他們流淚出去,帶着種子去播種。
他們唱着歌,背着禾捆回來,。  

Dear God, please bless all people who are sorrowful as they work

親愛的,請祝福工作時感到悲傷的人


Psalm 127

If the Lord does not build the house, 
in vain do its builders labor.

If the Lord does not watch over the city,
in vain does the watchman keep vigil.

Success comes not from earlier rising or from going later to rest,
but from the Lord's blessing.

Success is from the Lord
who blesses the womb of  his beloved while she sleeps.

Truly, children are a gift from the Lord,
a blessing, the fruit of the womb.

127

不建造房屋,建造者是白費勞苦。

不守護城,守城者是徒然護守。

成功不是因早起或晚睡,而是靠的降福。

成功是靠,他賜所愛者安睡。

的確,孩子是賜予的禮物,一個恩賜,
子宮的果實。

Lord, many people these days don't want children. Please help such people understand that children are a blessing

,現時很多人不生育孩子。
請幫助這些人明白孩子是一種恩賜


Psalm 128

O blessed are those who love the Lord and walk in his ways.

By the labor of your hands you shall eat.
You will be happy and prosper:

your wife like a fruitful vine in the heart of your house;
your children like shoots of the olive, around your table.

Indeed thus shall be blessed
the people who love and honor the Lord.

May the Lord bless you from Zion all the days of your life.
May you see your children's children in a happy Jerusalem!

On Israel, peace!

128

噢祝福那些喜愛和遵行他道路的人。

你會吃你雙手賺來的食你會開心和昌

你的妻子在家中像一株結滿果實的葡萄樹;
你的子女像橄欖樹的枝葉圍繞着你的桌子。

的確那些愛和敬重的人都會蒙受祝福。

Sion祝福你一生。
願你看見你的子孫在歡樂的耶路撒冷

以色列平安!

Dear Lord, may all married people
 live to see their children's children

 

親愛的願所有結了婚的人能見到子孫


Psalm 130

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord. 
Lord, hear my voice.

If you, O Lord, should  record our guilt,
Lord, who would survive?

But with you is found forgiveness.
For this we revere you.

My soul is waiting for the Lord.
I count on his word.

My soul is longing for the Lord
more than watchman for the daybreak.

With the Lord there is mercy
and fullness of redemption.

Israel indeed he will redeem
from all its  iniquity.

130

,我由深淵向你呼號。
,聽我的呼聲。

,你若記錄我們的罪過,
,誰會幸存?

但你寬恕為懷。 為此我們敬畏你。

我的靈魂正等待,我信靠他的話。

我的靈魂渴望比看守者渴望黎明更甚。

富於仁慈和充滿救恩。

他確實會救贖以色列脫離它一切的罪過。

Lord, please forgive me for all the bad things I have done

,請寬恕我所犯的一切過錯


Psalm 133

How good and how pleasant it is
when people live in unity.

It is like precious oil upon the head,
running down upon the beard.

It is like the dew of Hermon
which falls on the heights of Zion.

For there the Lord gives his blessing,
life for ever.

133

人們和睦相處是多麼好和多麼愉快。

像在頭上珍貴的油,流到鬍鬚上。

又像Hermon山的甘露降在Sion的山峰。

在那裏賜福,永恆的生命。

Dear Lord, please help all the peoples of the world
 to live as one family, in unity.

親愛的請幫助世人活像一家團結


Psalm 134

O come, bless the Lord,
all you who serve the Lord,

who stand in the house of the Lord,
in the courts of the house of our God.

Lift up your hands to heaven
and bless the Lord through the night.

May the Lord bless you from Zion,
he who made both heaven and earth.

134

噢來,讚美,你們所有事奉的人,

那些站在殿內、站在殿庭園內的人。

向天舉起你們雙手並整夜讚美

Sion向你祝福,是他創造天地。

Lord, please  protect my family tonight and every night

,請今晚及每晚保護我的家人


Psalm 135

Praise the name of the Lord,
praise him, servants of the Lord.

Praise the Lord for he is good.
Sing a psalm to his name for he is loving.

I know the Lord is great. He does whatever he wills
in heaven, on earth, in the seas.

Pagan idols are silver and gold,
the work of human hands.

They have mouths but they cannot speak.
They have eyes but they cannot see.

Sons of Israel, do not trust in useless idols.
Sons of Aaron, trust only in our Creator and Lord.

135

讚美的名,讚美他,的眾僕。

讚美因他善良。 歌頌他的名因他是仁愛

我知道很偉大,
他在天、在地、在海洋做自己想做的事。

異民的偶像用金和銀鑄造,人手的製造品。

他們有口但他們不能言。
他們有眼但他們不能看。

以色列的子孫,不要信靠無用的偶像。

Psalm 137

By the rivers of Babylon we sat and cried, remembering Zion.
On the poplars that grew there we hung up our harps.

For it was there that they asked us, our captors, for songs.
"Sing to us", they said, "one of Zion's songs".

O how could we sing the song of the Lord on alien soil?
If I forget you, Jerusalem, let my right hand wither.

O let my tongue cleave to my mouth
if I remember you not, Jerusalem, above all my joys.

137

我們坐在巴比倫河畔,一想起Sion就哭。
我們把豎琴掛在長於那裡的楊柳。

因有豎琴,俘虜我們的人要求我們唱歌。
他們說:為我們唱歌,一曲Sion的歌。

噢我們身處異鄉怎能唱的歌?
如果我忘記耶路撒讓我的右手枯

噢讓我的舌頭粘着我如果我不以思念
耶路撒冷,為我最大的喜樂。

Lord, please help  people who have been exiled 
from their homeland

,請幫助那些從家園被放逐的人

O Lord, you search me and you know me.
You know my resting and my rising.

You know exactly what's going on in my life,
all my ways are an open book to you.

Before ever a word is on my tongue,
you know, O Lord, what I'm going to say.

for the wonders of all your creation.

Psalm 146

My soul, give praise to the Lord.
I will praise the Lord all my days.

Put no trust in princes,
in mortal men in whom there is no help.

Take their breath, they return to clay
and their plans that day come to nothing.

They are happy who are helped by Jacob's God,
whose hope is in the Lord our God,

who alone made heaven and earth,
the seas and all they contain.

It is he who gives bread to the hungry,
the Lord, who sets prisoners free.

It is the Lord who gives sight to the blind,
who raises up those who are bowed down.

It is the Lord who protects the stranger
and upholds the widow and orphan.

It is the Lord who loves the just
but thwarts the path of the wicked.

The Lord will reign for ever,
Zion's God, from age to age.

146

我的靈魂讚美。 我會終生讚美

不信賴王侯、那些沒幫助的世人。

氣一斷,他們歸於塵土,
他們的計劃當日就幻滅。

Jacob幫助的人是喜樂的,
他們的希望在我們的

他獨自創造了天與地、海和其中所有萬物。

是他給饑餓者食他讓囚犯獲得自

恢復失明者的視力,
是他高舉那些表示敬意的人。

保護異邦人及維護寡婦和孤兒。

喜愛正義的人但挫敗惡人的計劃。

會永遠統治,Sion,世世代代。

Lord, please increase my trust and faith in you

Praise the Lord for he is good.
Sing to our God for he is loving. To him our praise is due.

and brings back Israel's exiles.

He heals the broken-hearted
and binds up all their wounds.

The Lord raises the lowly
and humbles the wicked.

He fixes the number of the stars.
He calls each one by name.

Our Lord is great and almighty.
His wisdom can never be measured.

He covers the heavens with clouds.
He prepares rain for the earth,

making mountains sprout with grass
and with plants to serve our needs.

His delight is not in horses
nor his pleasure in warriors' strength.

The Lord delights in those who love and honor him,
in those who wait for his love.

他制定星辰的數他為每顆星取名

我們的是偉大和全能。
他的智慧永不可量。

他以雲覆蓋諸天。 他為大地預備雨水,

使群山長出青草和植物供給我們所需。

他的快樂亦不在於兵力強大。
