           新譯: 他們有人在荒涼曠野流浪,
                     找不到往可安頓城邑的路.
                     又飢又渴,
                     生命瀕危,
                     於是, 他們在困苦中哀求耶和華,
                     衪就拯救他們脫離苦難.
                     領他們走畢直的路,
                     來到可安頓的城邑.
                     讓他們為衪的慈愛
                     和向世人行的奇事,
                     衷心去感謝耶和華.
                     因衪使乾渴的人暢飲甘泉,
                     使飢腸轆轆的人飽享美食.
           原譯: 他們在曠野荒地漂流,
                     尋不見可住的城邑.

                     他從他們的禍患中搭救他們.
                     又領他們行走直路,
                     使他們往可居住的城邑.
                     但願人因耶和華的慈愛
                     和他向人所行的奇事

           英文: Some wandered in desert wastelands,
                     finding no way to a city where they could settle.
                     They were hungry and thirsty,
                     and their lives ebbed away.
                     Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
                     and he delived them from their distress.
                     He led them by a straight way
                     to a city they could settle.
                     Let them give thanks to the Lord
                     for his unfailing love
                     and his wonderful deeds for men.
                     for he satisfies the thirsty
                     and fill the hungry with good things.

          新譯: 求你用右手救助我們,
                    好叫你所愛的人得救.
                    神在衪的聖所宣示過:
                   "我必趁勝分割示劍地,
                    還要一併丈量疏割谷,
                    基列是我的, 瑪拿西也是我的;
                    以法蓮是我的頭盔,
                    猶大更是我的權杖.
                    摩押是我的洗腳盆,
                    我還要向以東丟鞋,
                    為戰勝非利士歡呼."
          原譯: 求你應允我們, 用右手拯救我們,
                    好叫你所親愛的人得救.

                     Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine;
                     Ephraim is my helmet,
                     Judah my scepter.
                     Moab is my washbasin,
                     upon Edom I toss my sandal;
                     over Philistia I shout in triumph."
              說明: 108:6-9 與 60:5-8 相似.
                      1. Save us and help us with your right hand
