詩篇 84:1-12 Chinese New Version (CNVT)
渴慕朝見 神的必蒙福
可拉子孫的詩,交給詩班長,用“迦特”的樂器。
84 萬軍之耶和華啊!
你的居所多麼可愛。
2 我的靈渴想切慕耶和華的院子,
我的心身向永活的 神歡呼。
3 萬軍之耶和華,我的王我的 神啊!
在你的祭壇那裡,
麻雀找到了住處,
燕子也為自己找到了安置幼雛的巢。
4 住在你殿中的,都是有福的,
他們還要不斷讚美你。(細拉)
5 靠你有力量,心中嚮往通到聖殿大道的,
這人是有福的。
6 他們經過乾旱的山谷,
使這谷變為泉源之地,
更有秋雨使這谷到處都是水池。
7 他們行走,力上加力,
直到各人在錫安朝見 神。
8 耶和華萬軍的 神啊!
求你聽我的禱告;
雅各的 神啊!
求你留心聽。(細拉)
9  神啊!求你垂顧我們的盾牌,
求你看顧你的受膏者。
10 在你院子裡住一日,
勝過在別處住千日;
寧願站在我 神殿中的門檻上,
也不願住在惡人的帳棚裡。
11 因為耶和華 神是太陽,是盾牌,
耶和華賜下恩惠和光榮;
他沒有留下一樣好處,
不給那些行為正直的人。
12 萬軍之耶和華啊!
倚靠你的人是有福的。
詩篇 107:1-43 Chinese New Version (CNVT)
詩篇卷五
稱頌 神拯救他的子民
107 你們要稱謝耶和華,因他本是良善的;
他的慈愛永遠長存。
2 願耶和華救贖的子民這樣稱謝他;
這民就是他從敵人的手裡救贖出來,
3 把他們從各地,
就是從東從西、從南(“南”原文作“海”)從北,招聚回來的。
4 他們有些人在曠野、在荒漠飄流,
尋不見路往可居住的城巿。
5 他們又飢又渴,
心靈疲弱。
6 他們在急難中呼求耶和華,
耶和華就救他們脫離困苦;
7 領他們走正直的路,
使他們去到可居住的城巿。
8 願人因耶和華的慈愛,
和他向世人所行的奇事稱謝他。
9 因為他使乾渴的人得到滿足,
又使飢餓的人飽享美物。
10 他們有些人坐在黑暗和死蔭裡,
被困苦和鐵鍊捆鎖著;
11 因為他們違背了 神的話,
藐視了至高者的旨意。
12 所以 神用苦難治服他們的心;
他們跌倒,也沒有人幫助。
13 他們在急難中呼求耶和華,
耶和華就拯救他們脫離困苦。
14 他從黑暗裡和死蔭中把他們領出來,
弄斷他們的鎖鍊。
15 願人因耶和華的慈愛,
和他向世人所行的奇事稱謝他。
16 因為他打破了銅門,
砍斷了鐵閂。
17 他們有些人因自己的過犯成了愚妄人,
有人受苦是因為自己的罪孽。
18 他們厭惡各樣食物,
就臨近死門。
19 於是他們在急難中呼求耶和華,
他就拯救他們脫離困苦。
20 他發出話語醫治他們,
搭救他們脫離死亡。
21 願人因耶和華的慈愛,
因他向世人所行的奇事稱謝他。
22 願他們以感謝為祭獻給他,
歡欣地述說他的作為。
23 他們有些人坐船出海,
在大海上往來經商。
24 他們見過耶和華的作為,
和他在深海中所行的奇事。
25 他一吩咐,狂風就颳起,
海中的波浪也高揚。
26 他們上到天上,下到深淵,
他們的心因危難而驚慌。
27 他們搖搖晃晃,東倒西歪,好像醉酒的人;
他們的一切智慧都沒有用了。
28 於是他們在急難中呼求耶和華,
他就拯救他們脫離困苦。
29 他使狂風止息,
海浪就平靜無聲。
30 風平浪靜了,他們就歡喜;
他引領他們到他們所願去的港口。
31 願人因耶和華的慈愛,
和他向世人所行的奇事稱謝他。
32 願他們在眾民的會中尊崇他,
在長老的集會中讚美他。
33 他使江河變為曠野,
使水泉變為乾旱無水之地。
34 他使肥沃的土地變為鹹田,
都因住在那裡的居民的邪惡。
35 他使曠野變為池塘,
使旱地變為水泉。
36 他使飢餓的人住在那裡,
好讓他們建造可以居住的城巿。
37 他們耕種田地,栽種葡萄園,
得到豐盛的收成。
38 他又賜福給他們,
使他們人口眾多,
也沒有使他們的牲畜減少。
39 以後他們因為壓迫、患難、愁苦,
就人數減少,降為卑微。
40 他使權貴受羞辱,
使他們在荒廢無路的地方飄流。
41 他卻把貧窮的人安置在高處,免受苦難,
使他的家族繁衍,好像羊群。
42 正直的人看見了,就歡喜;
但所有邪惡的人都必閉口無言。
43 凡有智慧的,願他留意這些事;
願他思想耶和華的慈愛。
歌頌 神的權能及祈求勝利
歌一首,大衛的詩。
詩篇 66:1-20 Chinese New Version (CNVT)
頌讚 神的作為
詩歌一首,交給詩班長。
66 全地的居民哪!
你們應當向 神歡呼(本節在《馬索拉文本》包括細字標題)。
2 你們要歌頌他名的榮耀,
把榮耀和讚美都歸給他。
3 要對 神說:“你的作為多麼可畏!
因你偉大的能力,你的仇敵必向你假意歸順。
4 全地的居民都必敬拜你,
向你歌頌,
歌頌你的名。”(細拉)
5 你們來看 神的作為,
他向世人所作的事是可畏懼的。
6 他把海變為乾地,
眾人就步行過河,
我們要在那裡因他歡喜。
7 他以自己的權能永遠統管萬有,
他的眼睛鑒察萬國,
悖逆的人不可自高。(細拉)
8 萬民哪!你們要稱頌我們的 神,
宣揚讚美他的聲音。
9 他保全我們的性命,
不使我們的腳動搖。
10  神啊!你試煉了我們,
熬煉了我們,如同熬煉銀子一般。
11 你使我們進入網羅,
把重擔放在我們的背上。
12 你使人駕車軋我們的頭,
我們經過水火,
你卻把我們領到豐盛之地。
13 我要帶著燔祭進你的殿,
我要向你還我的願,
14 就是在急難的時候,
我嘴唇所許的,我口裡所說的。
15 我要把肥美的牲畜作燔祭,
連同公綿羊的馨香祭獻給你,
我並且要把公牛和公山羊獻上。(細拉)
16 所有敬畏 神的人哪!
你們都要來聽,
我要述說他為我所行的事。
17 我曾用口向他呼求,
我曾用舌頭頌讚他。
18 如果我心裡偏向罪孽,
主必不聽;
19  神卻垂聽了,
他留心聽了我禱告的聲音。
20  神是應當稱頌的,
他沒有拒絕我的禱告,
也沒有使他的慈愛離開我。
以斯拉記 4:1-5 Chinese New Version (CNVT)
重建聖殿的工作受攔阻
4 猶大和便雅憫的敵人聽見被擄回來的人為耶和華以色列的 神重建聖殿, 2 就前來見所羅巴伯和眾族長,對他們說:“請讓我們與你們一起建造吧!因為我們也像你們那樣尋求你們的 神。自從亞述王以撒哈頓把我們帶上這裡的日子以來,我們一直向他獻祭。” 3 但所羅巴伯、耶書亞和以色列其餘的族長對他們說:“你們不能與我們一同建築 神的殿,因為波斯王古列王吩咐我們自己為耶和華以色列的 神建殿。” 4 於是那地方的居民使猶大人的手發軟,驚擾他們的建築工程。 5 又在波斯王古列的日子,直到波斯王大利烏在位的時候,常常賄買參謀,來敵對猶大人,要破壞他們的建殿計劃。
詩篇 125 Chinese New Version (CNVT)
倚靠 神的人總不動搖
朝聖之歌(原文作“往上行之歌”)。
125 倚靠耶和華的人好像錫安山,
總不動搖,永遠屹立。(本節在《馬索拉文本》包括細字標題)
2 群山怎樣圍繞著耶路撒冷,
耶和華也照樣圍繞著他的子民,
從現在直到永遠。
3 惡人的杖不會常留在義人的地業上,
免得義人伸手作惡。
4 耶和華啊!求你善待那些良善,
和心裡正直的人。
5 至於那些偏行彎曲道路的人,
耶和華必把他們和作惡的人一同除去。
願平安歸於以色列。
以斯拉記 4:6-24 Chinese New Version (CNVT)
敵人上奏控告猶大人
6 亞哈隨魯在位的初期,他們寫了訴狀,控告猶大和耶路撒冷的居民。 7 在亞達薛西年間,比施蘭、米特利達、他別和其餘的同僚,也上書給波斯王亞達薛西,反對耶路撒冷人,奏文是用亞蘭文寫成,並且翻譯了(“並且翻譯了”指為亞達薛西王翻譯為波斯文字;參18節)。 8 省長利宏和祕書伸帥寫奏本給亞達薛西王,控告耶路撒冷。奏文如下: 9 省長利宏、祕書伸帥和他們其餘的同僚:法官、欽差、議員、官長(“法官、欽差、議員、官長”或譯:“底拿人、亞法薩提迦人、他毘拉人、亞法撒人”),亞基衛人、巴比倫人、書珊人,就是以攔人, 10 還有偉大尊貴的亞斯那巴擄來安置在撒瑪利亞城和河西那邊其餘地方的居民,呈上奏文。 11 這就是他們呈給亞達薛西王的奏文副本:“你的臣僕,就是河西那邊的人,上奏亞達薛西王: 12 奏知大王:從你那裡上到我們這裡來的猶大人,已經到了耶路撒冷這座叛逆和邪惡的城;他們進行建造,並且已經修好根基,開始建造城牆。 13 現在奏知大王:如果這城建成,牆垣築好,他們就不再繳稅、進貢和納糧,王的國庫收入必定受損。 14 現在我們既食王家的鹽,不該見王受剝奪,因此上奏稟告王, 15 請王查考先王的記錄,從記錄中查知這城是叛逆的城,對列王和各省都有損害,自古以來,城中常有造反的事,因此這城被拆毀。 16 我們告知王,如果這城建成,牆垣築好,河西那邊的地方就不再是王的了。”
王降旨下令停工
17 王把諭旨送交省長利宏、祕書伸帥,以及其餘住在撒瑪利亞和河西的同僚,說:“願你們平安。 18 你們呈給我們的奏本已經在我面前翻譯和誦讀了。 19 我下令考查,發現這城自古以來反叛列王,城中常有造反叛亂的事。 20 從前大能的君王統治耶路撒冷,治理河西那邊的全地,接受他們繳稅、進貢和納糧。 21 現在你們要下令叫這些人停工,不得重建這城,等候我的諭令。 22 你們要留心,不可疏忽這事,使王的虧損增加。”
23 當亞達薛西王諭旨的副本在利宏和祕書伸帥,以及他們的同僚面前宣讀出來以後,他們就急忙去耶路撒冷到猶大人那裡,用武力強迫他們停工。 24 所以,在耶路撒冷的神殿的工程就停止了,直到波斯王大利烏在位的第二年。
Psalm 84:1-12 New International Version (NIV)
Psalm 84[a]
For the director of music. According to gittith.[b] Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.
1 How lovely is your dwelling place,
   Lord Almighty!
2 My soul yearns, even faints,
   for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh cry out
   for the living God.
3 Even the sparrow has found a home,
   and the swallow a nest for herself,
   where she may have her young—
a place near your altar,
   Lord Almighty, my King and my God.
4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
   they are ever praising you.[c]
5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
   whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.
6 As they pass through the Valley of Baka,
   they make it a place of springs;
   the autumn rains also cover it with pools.[d]
7 They go from strength to strength,
   till each appears before God in Zion.
8 Hear my prayer, Lord God Almighty;
   listen to me, God of Jacob.
9 Look on our shield,[e] O God;
   look with favor on your anointed one.
10 Better is one day in your courts
   than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
   than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
   the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
   from those whose walk is blameless.
12 Lord Almighty,
   blessed is the one who trusts in you.
Psalm 107:1-43 New International Version (NIV)
BOOK V
Psalms 107–150
Psalm 107
1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
   his love endures forever.
2 Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story—
   those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,
3 those he gathered from the lands,
   from east and west, from north and south.[a]
4 Some wandered in desert wastelands,
   finding no way to a city where they could settle.
5 They were hungry and thirsty,
   and their lives ebbed away.
6 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
   and he delivered them from their distress.
7 He led them by a straight way
   to a city where they could settle.
8 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
   and his wonderful deeds for mankind,
9 for he satisfies the thirsty
   and fills the hungry with good things.
10 Some sat in darkness, in utter darkness,
   prisoners suffering in iron chains,
11 because they rebelled against God’s commands
   and despised the plans of the Most High.
12 So he subjected them to bitter labor;
   they stumbled, and there was no one to help.
13 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
   and he saved them from their distress.
14 He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness,
   and broke away their chains.
15 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
   and his wonderful deeds for mankind,
16 for he breaks down gates of bronze
   and cuts through bars of iron.
17 Some became fools through their rebellious ways
   and suffered affliction because of their iniquities.
18 They loathed all food
   and drew near the gates of death.
19 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
   and he saved them from their distress.
20 He sent out his word and healed them;
   he rescued them from the grave.
21 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
   and his wonderful deeds for mankind.
22 Let them sacrifice thank offerings
   and tell of his works with songs of joy.
23 Some went out on the sea in ships;
   they were merchants on the mighty waters.
24 They saw the works of the Lord,
   his wonderful deeds in the deep.
25 For he spoke and stirred up a tempest
   that lifted high the waves.
26 They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths;
   in their peril their courage melted away.
27 They reeled and staggered like drunkards;
   they were at their wits’ end.
28 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
   and he brought them out of their distress.
29 He stilled the storm to a whisper;
   the waves of the sea[b] were hushed.
30 They were glad when it grew calm,
   and he guided them to their desired haven.
31 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
   and his wonderful deeds for mankind.
32 Let them exalt him in the assembly of the people
   and praise him in the council of the elders.
33 He turned rivers into a desert,
   flowing springs into thirsty ground,
34 and fruitful land into a salt waste,
   because of the wickedness of those who lived there.
35 He turned the desert into pools of water
   and the parched ground into flowing springs;
36 there he brought the hungry to live,
   and they founded a city where they could settle.
37 They sowed fields and planted vineyards
   that yielded a fruitful harvest;
38 he blessed them, and their numbers greatly increased,
   and he did not let their herds diminish.
39 Then their numbers decreased, and they were humbled
   by oppression, calamity and sorrow;
40 he who pours contempt on nobles
   made them wander in a trackless waste.
41 But he lifted the needy out of their affliction
   and increased their families like flocks.
42 The upright see and rejoice,
   but all the wicked shut their mouths.
43 Let the one who is wise heed these things
   and ponder the loving deeds of the Lord.
Psalm 66:1-20 New International Version (NIV)
Psalm 66
For the director of music. A song. A psalm.
1 Shout for joy to God, all the earth!
2     Sing the glory of his name;
   make his praise glorious.
3 Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!
   So great is your power
   that your enemies cringe before you.
4 All the earth bows down to you;
   they sing praise to you,
   they sing the praises of your name.”[a]
5 Come and see what God has done,
   his awesome deeds for mankind!
6 He turned the sea into dry land,
   they passed through the waters on foot—
   come, let us rejoice in him.
7 He rules forever by his power,
   his eyes watch the nations—
   let not the rebellious rise up against him.
8 Praise our God, all peoples,
   let the sound of his praise be heard;
9 he has preserved our lives
   and kept our feet from slipping.
10 For you, God, tested us;
   you refined us like silver.
11 You brought us into prison
   and laid burdens on our backs.
12 You let people ride over our heads;
   we went through fire and water,
   but you brought us to a place of abundance.
13 I will come to your temple with burnt offerings
   and fulfill my vows to you—
14 vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke
   when I was in trouble.
15 I will sacrifice fat animals to you
   and an offering of rams;
   I will offer bulls and goats.
16 Come and hear, all you who fear God;
   let me tell you what he has done for me.
17 I cried out to him with my mouth;
   his praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had cherished sin in my heart,
   the Lord would not have listened;
19 but God has surely listened
   and has heard my prayer.
20 Praise be to God,
   who has not rejected my prayer
   or withheld his love from me!
Ezra 4:1-5 New International Version (NIV)
Opposition to the Rebuilding
4 When the enemies of Judah and Benjamin heard that the exiles were building a temple for the Lord, the God of Israel, 2 they came to Zerubbabel and to the heads of the families and said, “Let us help you build because, like you, we seek your God and have been sacrificing to him since the time of Esarhaddon king of Assyria, who brought us here.”
3 But Zerubbabel, Joshua and the rest of the heads of the families of Israel answered, “You have no part with us in building a temple to our God. We alone will build it for the Lord, the God of Israel, as King Cyrus, the king of Persia, commanded us.”
4 Then the peoples around them set out to discourage the people of Judah and make them afraid to go on building.[a] 5 They bribed officials to work against them and frustrate their plans during the entire reign of Cyrus king of Persia and down to the reign of Darius king of Persia.
Psalm 125:1-5 New International Version (NIV)
Psalm 125
A song of ascents.
1 Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
   which cannot be shaken but endures forever.
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
   so the Lord surrounds his people
   both now and forevermore.
3 The scepter of the wicked will not remain
   over the land allotted to the righteous,
for then the righteous might use
   their hands to do evil.
4 Lord, do good to those who are good,
   to those who are upright in heart.
5 But those who turn to crooked ways
   the Lord will banish with the evildoers.
Peace be on Israel.
Ezra 4:6-24 New International Version (NIV)
Later Opposition Under Xerxes and Artaxerxes
6 At the beginning of the reign of Xerxes,[a] they lodged an accusation against the people of Judah and Jerusalem.
7 And in the days of Artaxerxes king of Persia, Bishlam, Mithredath, Tabeel and the rest of his associates wrote a letter to Artaxerxes. The letter was written in Aramaic script and in the Aramaic language.[b][c]
8 Rehum the commanding officer and Shimshai the secretary wrote a letter against Jerusalem to Artaxerxes the king as follows:
9 Rehum the commanding officer and Shimshai the secretary, together with the rest of their associates—the judges, officials and administrators over the people from Persia, Uruk and Babylon, the Elamites of Susa, 10 and the other people whom the great and honorable Ashurbanipal deported and settled in the city of Samaria and elsewhere in Trans-Euphrates.
11 (This is a copy of the letter they sent him.)
To King Artaxerxes,
From your servants in Trans-Euphrates:
12 The king should know that the people who came up to us from you have gone to Jerusalem and are rebuilding that rebellious and wicked city. They are restoring the walls and repairing the foundations.
13 Furthermore, the king should know that if this city is built and its walls are restored, no more taxes, tribute or duty will be paid, and eventually the royal revenues will suffer.[d] 14 Now since we are under obligation to the palace and it is not proper for us to see the king dishonored, we are sending this message to inform the king, 15 so that a search may be made in the archives of your predecessors. In these records you will find that this city is a rebellious city, troublesome to kings and provinces, a place with a long history of sedition. That is why this city was destroyed. 16 We inform the king that if this city is built and its walls are restored, you will be left with nothing in Trans-Euphrates.
17 The king sent this reply:
To Rehum the commanding officer, Shimshai the secretary and the rest of their associates living in Samaria and elsewhere in Trans-Euphrates:
Greetings.
18 The letter you sent us has been read and translated in my presence. 19 I issued an order and a search was made, and it was found that this city has a long history of revolt against kings and has been a place of rebellion and sedition. 20 Jerusalem has had powerful kings ruling over the whole of Trans-Euphrates, and taxes, tribute and duty were paid to them. 21 Now issue an order to these men to stop work, so that this city will not be rebuilt until I so order.22 Be careful not to neglect this matter. Why let this threat grow, to the detriment of the royal interests?
23 As soon as the copy of the letter of King Artaxerxes was read to Rehum and Shimshai the secretary and their associates, they went immediately to the Jews in Jerusalem and compelled them by force to stop.
24 Thus the work on the house of God in Jerusalem came to a standstill until the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia.
