歐瑟亞 Hosea
1當以色列尚在童年時,我就愛了他;從在埃及時,我就召叫他為我的兒子。 1As the morning passeth, so hath the king of Israel passed away. Because Israel was a child, and I loved him: and I called my son out of Egypt.
2可是我越呼喚他們,他們越遠離我,去給巴耳獻祭,向偶像進香。 2As they called them, they went away from before their face: they offered victims to Baalim, and sacrificed to idols.
3是我教了厄弗辣因邁步,雙臂抱着他們,但他們卻不理會是我照顧了他們。 3And I was like a foster father to Ephraim, I carried them in my arms: and they knew not that I healed them.
4是我用仁慈的繩索,愛情的帶子牽着他們,我對他們有如高舉嬰兒到自己面頰的慈親,俯身餵養他們。 4I will draw them with the cords of Adam, with the bands of love: and I will be to them as one that taketh off the yoke on their jaws: and I put his meat to him that he might eat.
5他們卻要返回埃及地,要亞述作他們的君王,因為他們拒絕歸依我。 5He shall not return into the land of Egypt, but the Assyrian shall be his king: because they would not be converted.
6刀劍必要在他們的城中橫行,殺絕他們的子女,在他們的堡壘中吞噬他們。 6The sword hath begun in his cities, and it shall consume his chosen men, and shall devour their heads.
7我的百姓因着自己的叛逆使我厭煩了;為此上主給他們指定應負的重軛,因為他已不再憐惜他們。 7And my people shall long for my return: but a yoke shall be put upon them together, which shall not be taken off.
8厄弗辣因!我怎能捨棄你?以色列!我怎能拋掉你?我怎能使你如同阿德瑪,待你如同責波殷?我的心已轉變,我的五內已感動; 8How shall I deal with thee, O Ephraim, shall I protect thee, O Israel? how shall I make thee as Adama, shall I set thee as Seboim? my heart is turned within me, my repentance is stirred up.
9我不再按我的盛怒行事,不再毀滅厄弗辣因,因為我是天主而不是人,是在你中間的聖者,而不是伏於城門的仇敵。 9I will not execute the fierceness of my wrath: I will not return to destroy Ephraim: because I am God, and not man: the holy one in the midst of thee, and I will not enter into the city.
10的確,他們必要追隨上主,他要像獅子吼叫;他一吼叫,他的子女便要從西方急速歸來, 10They shall walk after the Lord, he shall roar as a lion: because he shall roar, and the children of the sea shall fear.
11猶如飛鳥由埃及急速飛來,猶如鴿子從亞述飛來;我要使他們安居在他們的家中──上主的斷語。 11And they shall fly away like a bird out of Egypt, and like a dove out of the land of the Assyrians: and I will place them in their own houses, saith the Lord.
12 12Ephraim hath compassed me about with denials, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Juda went down as a witness with God, and is faithful with the saints.
