                     for comforters, but found none.
                     They put gall in my food
                     and gave me vinegar for my thirst.
           說明: 1. and has left me helpless

                    let your fierce anger overtake them.
                    May their place be deserted;
                    let there be no one to dwell in their tents.
                    For they persecute those you wound

          原譯: 我要以詩歌讚美神的名,
                    以感謝稱他為大!
                    這便叫耶和華喜悅, 勝似獻牛,
                    或是獻有角蹄的公牛.
          英文: I will praise God's name in song
                    and glorify him with thanksgiving.
                    This will please the Lord more than an ox,

          說明: 1. and glorify him with thanksgiving

                     on the top of the hills may it sway.
                     let its fruit flourish like Lebanon;
                     let it thrive like the grass of the field.
                     May his name endure forever;
                     may it continue as long as the sun.
                     All nations will be blessed through him,
                     and they will call him blessed.
           說明: 1. 第16節1,2,句新譯較原譯正確通順工整恰切.
                         sway 描述穀實 "搖曳" 非 "響動"

          原譯: 他們死的時候沒有疼痛,
                    他們的力氣卻也壯實.
                    他們不像別人受苦,
                    也不像別人遭災.
                    所以驕傲如鍊子戴在他們的項上;
                    強暴像衣裳遮住他們的身體.
                    他們的眼睛因體胖而凸出;
                    他們所得的過於心裏所想的.
           英文: They have no struggles;
                     their bodies are healthy and strong.
                     They are free from the burdens common to man;
