亞毛斯 Amos
1上主這樣說:「為了摩阿布再三再四犯罪,我不收回成命,因為他們曾將厄東君王的骨骸焚化成灰。 1Thus saith the Lord: For three crimes of Moab, and for four I will not convert him: because he hath burnt the bones of the king of Edom even to ashes.
2我必將火投於摩阿布,燒盡克黎約特的王宮;摩阿布必在騷嚷、吶喊和號角聲中滅亡。 2And I will send a fire into Moab, and it shall devour the houses of Carioth: and Moab shall die with a noise, with the sound of the trumpet:
3我必由其中消滅民長,將她的一切長官同她一起殺死」──上主說。 3And I will cut off the judge from the midst thereof, and will slay all his princes with him, saith the Lord.
4上主這樣說:「為了猶大再三再四犯罪,我不收回成命,因為他們離棄了上主的法律,沒有遵守他的誡命;他們祖先所追隨的邪神,使他們走入了歧途。 4Thus saith the Lord: For three crimes of Juda, and for four I will not convert him: because he hath cast away the law of the Lord, and hath not kept his commandments: for their idols have caused them to err, after which their fathers have walked.
5我必把火投於猶大,燒盡耶路撒冷的王宮。」 5And I will send a fire into Juda, and it shall devour the houses of Jerusalem.
6上主這樣說:「為了以色列再三再四犯罪,我不收回成命,因為他們為了銀錢出賣義人;為一雙鞋,出賣無辜的人。 6Thus saith the Lord: For three crimes of Israel, and for four I will not convert him: because he hath sold the just man for silver, and the poor man for a pair of shoes.
7他們把窮人的頭踏在塵土裏,侵奪卑微人的權利;兒子與父親走近同一少女,以致褻瀆了我的聖名; 7They bruise the heads of the poor upon the dust of the earth, and turn aside the way of the humble: and the son and his father have gone to the same young woman, to profane my holy name.
8他們靠近每個祭壇,躺在抵押者的衣服上,在他們的神廟內喝剝削來的酒。 8And they sat down upon garments laid to pledge by every altar: and drank the wine of the condemned in the house of their God.
9是我由你們面前消滅了阿摩黎人,他們雖高大似香柏,堅固如橡樹,但我仍從樹上摘去了果實,由樹下拔出了根子。 9Yet I cast out the Amorrhite before their face: whose height was like the height of cedars, and who was strong as an oak: and I destroyed his fruit from above, and his roots beneath.
10是我由埃及國領你們上來,四十年之久引你們經過曠野,使你們佔領了阿摩黎人的國土。 10It is I that brought you up out of the land of Egypt, and I led you forty years through the wilderness, that you might possess the land of the Amorrhite.
11是我從你們的子孫中立了一些人為先知,由你們的少年中選拔了一些人作獻身者。以色列子民,是不是這樣呢?──上主的斷語。 11And I raised up of your sons for prophets, and of your young men for Nazarites. Is it not so, O ye children of Israel, saith the Lord?
12但是,你們竟叫獻身者喝酒,又吩咐先知說:「別傳神言!」 12And you will present wine to the Nazarites: and command the prophets, saying: Prophesy not.
13看,我要使你們腳下的地搖蕩,好像滿載禾捆的車搖蕩一樣, 13Behold, I will screak under you as a wain screaketh that is laden with hay.
14以致疾行者無法逃遁,強有力者無法施展,武士救不了自己, 14And flight shall perish from the swift, and the valiant shall not possess his strength, neither shall the strong save his life.
15弓手不能屹立,捷足者不能逃脫,騎馬者不能自救。 15And he that holdeth the bow shall not stand, and the swift of foot shall not escape, neither shall the rider of the horse save his life.
16在那一天,武士中最勇敢的,也僅能赤身逃走」──上主的斷語。 16And the stout of heart among the valiant shall flee away naked in that day, saith the Lord.
