How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! 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... For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor.
Psalm 84

安息於主應許 Rest in God’s Promise

Psalm 4

My Sermon Notes from April 5, 2020 Full Text: 詩篇 Psalm 4

1 顯我為義的神啊,我呼籲的時候,求你應允我。我在困苦中,你曾使我寬廣;現在求你憐恤我,聽我的禱告。
2 你們這上流人哪,你們將我的尊榮變為羞辱,要到幾時呢?你們喜愛虛妄,尋找虛假,要到幾時呢?(細拉)
3 你們要知道,耶和華已經分別虔誠人歸他自己,我求告耶和華,他必聽我。
4 你們應當畏懼,不可犯罪;在床上的時候要心裡思想,並要肅靜。(細拉)
5 當獻上公義的祭,又當倚靠耶和華。
6 有許多人說:「誰能指示我們什麼好處?」耶和華啊,求你仰起臉來,光照我們!
7 你使我心裡快樂,勝過那豐收五穀、新酒的人。
8 我必安然躺下睡覺,因為獨有你耶和華使我安然居住。

1 Answer me when I call to you,
my righteous God.
Give me relief from my distress;
have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

2 How long will you people turn my glory into shame?
How long will you love delusions and seek false gods?
3 Know that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself;
the Lord hears when I call to him.

4 Tremble and do not sin;
when you are on your beds,
search your hearts and be silent.
5 Offer the sacrifices of the righteous
and trust in the Lord.

6 Many, Lord, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?”
Let the light of your face shine on us.
7 Fill my heart with joy
when their grain and new wine abound.

8 In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, Lord,
make me dwell in safety.
