The Shepherd’s Psalm, Part 1 (Chinese, English)

Psalm 23:1 [A Psalm of David.]] The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

[大卫的诗篇。]] 耶和华是我的牧者; 我不会想要的。

MY SHEPHERD

我的牧者 

This is probably the best-known psalm of all the wonderful 150, people can often quote this verse by verse.

这可能是所有精彩的诗篇150篇中最著名的一首,人们经常可以一节一节地引用这首诗。 

We are going to see how the first words, play out in practice.

我们来看看第一个词,在实践中是如何发挥作用的。 

The author, well who better than a shepherd, David knew about being a shepherd and the Holy Spirit used his experience to write these inspired and blessed verses. 

作者,比牧羊人更好的人,大卫知道如何做一个牧羊人,圣灵用他的经验写了这些鼓舞和祝福的诗句。 

He starts out with this statement, the Lord is my shepherd, he was an expert in shepherding sheep, but here he was acknowledging that is the Lord who was His shepherd.

他以这样的陈述开始,上帝是我的牧羊人,他是一个善于放羊的人,但在这里他承认上帝是他的牧羊人。 

Everything flows from our relationship with the shepherd, he provides for us, he protects us and gives us all blessings.

一切都源于我们与牧羊人的关系,祂供给我们,保护我们,赐予我们所有的祝福。 

But it starts, with this question; Is he your shepherd?

但从这个问题开始,祂是你的牧者吗? 

The whole thrust of this psalm, is the relationship between the shepherd and his sheep, it is an intimate and personal one. Have you an intimate and personal relationship with the Lord and are able to call him.. my shepherd.

这篇诗篇的主旨,是牧人和祂的羊之间的关系,是一种亲密而私人的关系。你是否与主有亲密的个人关系,并且能够呼求祂……我的牧者。 

NEEDING NOTHING BUT THE LORD

除了主,什么也不需要 

In the first devotion of this series, we saw how personal, the Lord was. He was my shepherd.

在这一系列的第一个福音文中,我们看到主是多么的个人化。祂是我的牧羊人。 

Being a shepherd was a lonely business sometimes, David had to look after the sheep on his own, there must have been times that he ran out of food for himself, but he like us, knows that the Lord and him alone is his provider.

做一个牧羊人有时是一件孤独的事情,大卫必须自己照顾羊群,他一定有几次耗尽了自己的食物,但他像我们一样,知道只有主和他是他的供应者。 

When we know the Lord is our shepherd, we will never be in want, because our Father knows what we need, even before we ask Him.. amen.

当我们知道主是我们的牧者,我们就不会缺乏,因为甚至在我们问祂之前,我们的父知道我们需要什么……阿们。 

When we ask him, he will give us the right thing at just the right time. I have seen God provide, so many times during my time in China. He brings students to the class, the right students, the right number at the right time.

当我们问祂时,祂会在合适的时间给我们合适的东西。我在中国的时候,多次看到上帝提供的东西。祂带着学生来上课,在合适的时间带着合适的人数。 

We can trust God, because he is our shepherd, the sheep have complete trust of their shepherd, if we do the same, we will be able to say:

我们可以信靠上帝,因为祂是我们的牧人,羊完全信靠他们的牧人,如果我们也这样做,我们就能说: 

I shall not want or I shall never lack any good thing.

我不会缺少或永远不会缺少任何好东西。 

Amen.

阿门 

God alone is our Jehovah Jireh.. our provider, not the church or your friends, although he uses these two avenues.

惟有上帝是我们的耶和华耶勒。我们的供给者,而不是教会或你的朋友,尽管祂使用这两种途径。 

God provides everything for his sheep. Praise his holy name.

上帝为祂的羔羊预备了一切。赞美祂的圣名。 

God bless you

上帝祝福你

  1. Hi Keith,
    Yes, praising His name, Always!
    Thank you
    God Bless~

  2. The one thing that makes all the difference between man and the Lord with this title is that He laid down His life for His sheep (mankind).
    I haven’t heard of any man with this job description ever did this for their flock though David did stand up to rescue some of his father’s sheep when wild animals came for the herd.
    Wonderful message.

  3. thanks for your responses
