活出美好

Part 5 Find Strength Through Adversity
Chapter 21 Getting Up on the Inside

Psa 21:1  (大衛的詩,交與伶長。)耶和華啊,王必因你的能力歡喜;因你的救恩,他的快樂何其大!
Psa 21:2  他心裡所願的,你已經賜給他;他嘴唇所求的,你未嘗不應允。(細拉)
Psa 21:3  你以美福迎接他,把精金的冠冕戴在他頭上。
Psa 21:4  他向你求壽,你便賜給他,就是日子長久,直到永遠。
Psa 21:5  他因你的救恩大有榮耀;你又將尊榮威嚴加在他身上。
Psa 21:6  你使他有洪福,直到永遠,又使他在你面前歡喜快樂。
Psa 21:7  王倚靠耶和華,因至高者的慈愛必不搖動。
Psa 21:8  你的手要搜出你的一切仇敵;你的右手要搜出那些恨你的人。
Psa 21:9  你發怒的時候,要使他們如在炎熱的火爐中。耶和華要在他的震怒中吞滅他們;那火要把他們燒盡了。
Psa 21:10  你必從世上滅絕他們的子孫(原文作果子),從人間滅絕他們的後裔。
Psa 21:11  因為他們有意加害於你;他們想出計謀,卻不能做成。
Psa 21:12  你必使他們轉背逃跑,向他們的臉搭箭在弦。
Psa 21:13  耶和華啊,願你因自己的能力顯為至高!這樣,我們就唱詩,歌頌你的大能。

Psalm 21

For the director of music. A psalm of David.
 1 O LORD, the king rejoices in your strength.
       How great is his joy in the victories you give!

 2 You have granted him the desire of his heart
       and have not withheld the request of his lips.
       Selah

 3 You welcomed him with rich blessings
       and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.

 4 He asked you for life, and you gave it to him—
       length of days, for ever and ever.

 5 Through the victories you gave, his glory is great;
       you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.

 6 Surely you have granted him eternal blessings
       and made him glad with the joy of your presence.

 7 For the king trusts in the LORD;
       through the unfailing love of the Most High
       he will not be shaken.

 8 Your hand will lay hold on all your enemies;
       your right hand will seize your foes.

 9 At the time of your appearing
       you will make them like a fiery furnace.
       In his wrath the LORD will swallow them up,
       and his fire will consume them.

 10 You will destroy their descendants from the earth,
       their posterity from mankind.

 11 Though they plot evil against you
       and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed;

 12 for you will make them turn their backs
       when you aim at them with drawn bow.

 13 Be exalted, O LORD, in your strength;
       we will sing and praise your might.

 


本 篇與前篇同為戰歌,前篇是出師前的祈禱,本篇是班師後的頌恩。前篇預祝勝利,本篇慶祝勝利。兩篇彼此對映,前篇為「將你的心願賜給你」(廿4)而祈求,本 篇則說:「他心所願的,你已經賜給他」(2節)。前篇講到「我們要因你的救恩誇勝」(廿5),本篇則說:「因你的救恩,他的快樂何其大」(1節)。本篇稱 頌神給王的賜福,包含:美福、冠冕(3節)、長壽(4節)、尊榮威嚴(5節)等,遠遠超過起初所求所想的。我們的神是垂聽禱告的神,也是豐盛的父,孩子們 微小的禱告,祂都聽見,並樂意賜福給祂所愛的孩子。你是否經歷過禱告的奇妙呢?你是否如詩人一般,獻上感恩?



這兩篇都有預言性質,「王」一方面是指大衛,一方面指基督,故本篇也預表基督的得勝。8〜12節是眾民或祭司長向王歌頌的祝詞,祝賀王勝過所有的 仇敵。但這段話,要在基督的身上才完全應驗。「在羔羊發怒的時候」(啟六16〜17),必要除滅一切與主為敵的人。王所得著的福氣,也預表基督所得的尊 榮,這一切尊榮福樂也因著耶穌基督賞給一切屬祂的兒女。為此我們豈能不發聲讚美?神的救恩是當讚美的。



本篇以讚美神的大能為始,以歌頌祂的大能為終,卻以倚靠神和神不動搖的慈愛為全詩的中心(7節)。神的兒女得蒙拯救,是因神的大能和祂的慈愛,祂的大能可畏,祂的慈愛不動搖,因此讓我們一邊讚美,一邊滿有信心的往前走,舉著得勝的旌旗,把祂當得的榮耀歸給祂。

神曾垂聽我的禱告嗎?我是否常獻上感恩和頌讚?

感謝神,常帥領我在基督誇勝,求神繼續帶領我,面對我的軟弱、我的缺點、我的仇敵、我的環境,使我能因不斷倚靠你而得勝。
