Psalm 詩篇 18
4 The cords of death encompassed me; the torrents of destruction assailed me;
5 the cords of Sheol entangled me; the snares of death confronted me. 6 In my distress I called upon the Lord; to my God I cried for help. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears.
4 死亡的繩索勒住我，毀滅的急流驚嚇我，5 陰間的繩索纏繞我，死亡的圈套臨到我。6 我在急難中求告耶和華，向我的 神呼求。他從殿中聽了我的聲音，我在他面前的呼求必進入他耳中。
At times when David was pursued by Saul and other enemies, he felt death closing around him like a torrent, encompassing and entangling him. In his distress he called upon the Lord for help, and God “reached down from on high and took hold of [him]…drew [him] out of deep waters.” (v. 16). God has the best 911 call system! He “will neither slumber nor sleep” (Ps 121:4). God is available any time and anywhere. You never need to worry about getting a busy line or about God’s ability. God brings light to our darkness; by Him “[we] can run against a troop, … [we] can leap over a wall” (18:28-29). Therefore when you are in distress, do not lose hope but “call God’s 911”; His help is only a call away!
當大衛被掃羅和其他敵人追趕時，他感到死亡像洪流一樣在他身邊圍繞，包圍並糾纏了他。 他在急難中求告耶和華，上帝“他從高天伸手抓住我，把我從大水中拉上來。” （第16節）。 上帝擁有最好的911緊急救助通話系統！ 祂“不打盹，也不睡覺”（詩121：4）。 上帝隨時隨地都可以接通。 您無需擔心佔線或上帝的能力。上帝為我們的黑暗帶來光明。 藉著祂的話“照明我們的黑暗。使我們衝入敵軍，跳過城牆”（18：28-29）。 因此，當您陷入困境時，不要失去希望，而要“播打上帝的911”。 祂的幫助只有一個電話之遙！
