Hebrews:Chapter 9

希伯來書 Hebrews
1第一個盟約固然也有行敬禮的規程,和屬於世界的聖殿, 1The former indeed had also justifications of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary.
2因為有支搭好了的帳幕,前邊的帳幕稱為聖所,裡面設有燈台、桌子和供餅; 2For there was a tabernacle made the first, wherein were the candlesticks, and the table, and the setting forth of loaves, which is called the holy.
3在第二層帳幔後邊,還有一個帳幕,稱為至聖所, 3And after the second veil, the tabernacle, which is called the holy of holies:
4裡面設有金香壇和周圍包金的約櫃,櫃內有盛「瑪納」的金罐,和亞郎開花的棍杖及約版。 4Having a golden censer, and the ark of the testament covered about on every part with gold, in which was a golden pot that had manna, and the rod of Aaron, that had blossomed, and the tables of the testament.
5櫃上有天主榮耀的「革魯賓」,遮著贖罪蓋:關於這一切,現今不必一一細講。 5And over it were the cherubims of glory overshadowing the propitiatory: of which it is not needful to speak now particularly.
6這一切既如此安置了,司祭們就常進前邊的帳幕去行敬禮; 6Now these things being thus ordered, into the first tabernacle the priests indeed always entered, accomplishing the offices of sacrifices.
7至於後邊的帳幕,惟獨大司祭一年一次進去,常帶上血,去為自己和為人民的過犯奉獻。 7But into the second, the high priest alone, once a year: not without blood, which he offereth for his own, and the people's ignorance:
8聖神藉此指明:幾時前邊的帳幕還存在,到天上聖殿的道路就還沒有打開。 8The Holy Ghost signifying this, that the way into the holies was not yet made manifest, whilst the former tabernacle was yet standing.
9以上所述是現今時期的預表,表示所奉獻的供物和犧牲,不能使行敬禮的人,在良心上得到成全, 9Which is a parable of the time present: according to which gifts and sacrifices are offered, which can not, as to the conscience, make him perfect that serveth, only in meats and in drinks,
10因為這一切都是屬於外表禮節的規程,只著重食品、飲料和各樣的洗禮,立定為等待改良的時期。 10And divers washings, and justices of the flesh laid on them until the time of correction.
11可是基督一到,就作了未來鴻恩的大司祭,他經過了那更大,更齊全的,不是人手所造,不屬於受造世界的帳幕, 11But Christ, being come an high priest of the good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hand, that is, not of this creation:
12不是帶著公山羊和牛犢的血,而是帶著自己的血,一次而為永遠進入了天主的聖殿,獲得了永遠的救贖。 12Neither by the blood of goats, or of calves, but by his own blood, entered once into the holies, having obtained eternal redemption.
13假如公山羊和牛犢的血,以及母牛的灰燼,灑在那些受玷污的人身上,可淨化他們得到肉身的潔淨, 13For if the blood of goats and of oxen, and the ashes of an heifer being sprinkled, sanctify such as are defiled, to the cleansing of the flesh:
14何況基督的血呢?他藉著永生的神,已把自己毫無瑕疵的奉獻於天主,他的血豈不更能潔淨我們的良心,除去死亡的行為,好去事奉生活的天主? 14How much more shall the blood of Christ, who by the Holy Ghost offered himself unspotted unto God, cleanse our conscience from dead works, to serve the living God?
15為此,他作了新約的中保,以他的死亡補贖了在先前的盟約之下所有的罪過,好叫那些蒙召的人,獲得所應許的永遠的產業。 15And therefore he is the mediator of the new testament: that by means of his death, for the redemption of those transgressions, which were under the former testament, they that are called may receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
16凡是遺囑,必須提供立遺囑者的死亡, 16For where there is a testament, the death of the testator must of necessity come in.
17因為有了死亡,遺囑纔能生效,幾時立遺囑者還活著,總不得生效。 17For a testament is of force, after men are dead: otherwise it is as yet of no strength, whilst the testator liveth.
18因此,連先前的盟約也得用血開創。 18Whereupon neither was the first indeed dedicated without blood.
19當日梅瑟向全民眾按法律宣讀了一切誡命之後,就用朱紅線和牛膝草,蘸上牛犢和公山羊的血和水,灑在約書和全民眾身上, 19For when every commandment of the law had been read by Moses to all the people, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water, and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people,
20說:『這是天主向你們所命定的盟約的血。』 20Saying: This is the blood of the testament, which God hath enjoined unto you.
21連帳幕和為敬禮用的一切器皿,他也照樣灑上了血; 21The tabernacle also and all the vessels of the ministry, in like manner, he sprinkled with blood.
22並且按照法律,幾乎一切都是用血潔淨的,若沒有流血,就沒有赦免。 22And almost all things, according to the law, are cleansed with blood: and without shedding of blood there is no remission.
23那麼,既然連那些天上事物的模型還必須這樣潔淨,而那天上的本物,自然更需要用比這些更高貴的犧牲, 23It is necessary therefore that the patterns of heavenly things should be cleansed with these: but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
24因為,基督並非進入了一座人手所造,為實體模型的聖殿,而是進入了上天本境,今後出現在天主面前,為我們轉求。 24For Jesus is not entered into the holies made with hands, the patterns of the true: but into heaven itself, that he may appear now in the presence of God for us.
25他無須再三奉獻自己,好像大司祭每年應帶著不是自己的血進入聖殿一樣, 25Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holies, every year with the blood of others:
26否則,從創世以來,他就必須多次受苦受難了;可是現今,在今世的末期,只出現了一次,以自己作犧牲,除滅了罪過。 26For then he ought to have suffered often from the beginning of the world: but now once at the end of ages, he hath appeared for the destruction of sin, by the sacrifice of himself.
27就如規定人只死一次,這以後就是審判; 27And as it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this the judgment:
28同樣,基督也只一次奉獻了自己,為除免大眾的罪過;將來他要再次顯現,與罪過無關,而是要向那些期待他的人施行救恩。 28So also Christ was offered once to exhaust the sins of many; the second time he shall appear without sin to them that expect him unto salvation.
