6/2/20 孩童的能力 The Power of Children

Psalm 8

1. O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.  Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.

  1. 耶和華—我們的主啊,你的名在全地何其美!你將你的榮耀彰顯於天。你因敵人的緣故,從孩童和吃奶的口中建立了能力,使仇敵和報仇的閉口無言。

The Power of ChildrenGod is not just the God of Israel but He is also the God of the whole earth. Since Creation is “the work of [His] fingers” (v. 3), God’s name and glory should be proclaimed all over the earth. God has given men dominion over the works of His hands for this purpose (v. 6). The battle for the next generation is to continue the magnification of God’s name. When our children open their mouths and raise their voices to praise God, “the enemy and the avenger” will be silenced. Jesus quoted this verse in Matthew 21:16 to affirm the value of children’s praise towards God. That is why the Enemy tries so hard to block children from knowing God as our Creator and desires to close the mouths of children whose praise of the Creator God would still the voice of the Enemy. It is time for parents and the church to mobilize all of our resources and efforts to let the next generation know the work of God’s hands and to praise His name, for “O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!”


上帝不僅是以色列的上帝,而且還是全世界的上帝。由於創造是“祂手指所造”(第3節),因此應在全地宣告上帝的名和榮耀。為此目的,上帝派人管理祂手所造的萬物。(第6節)。 下一代的爭戰是能繼續彰顯上帝的名字和榮耀。 當我們的孩子張開口,揚起聲音讚美上帝時,“仇敵和報仇的“將閉口無言。 耶穌在馬太福音21:16中引用了這節經文,以肯定兒童讚美上帝的價值。 這就是為什麼敵人如此努力地阻止兒童認識上帝是我們的創造者,並希望閉上那些讚美造物主上帝使仇敵閉口的孩子們的口。 現在是父母和教會總動員我們所有資源和努力讓下一代認識上帝手指所造並讚美祂名的時候了,因為“耶和華—我們的主啊,你的名在全地何其美!”

Let the next generation praise the Lord! 讓下一代讚美主!
