歐瑟亞 Hosea
1厄弗辣因用謊言,以色列家以詭詐欺騙了我;猶大對天主也是不忠實的證人,他只知忠於迷惑他的人。 1Ephraim feedeth on the wind, and followeth the burning heat: all the day long he multiplied lies and desolation: and he hath made a covenant with the Assyrians, and carried oil into Egypt.
2厄弗辣因愛好颶風,整日追逐東風,說許多謊話,行許多暴行,既與亞述結盟,又給埃及送油。 2Therefore there is a judgment of the Lord with Juda, and a visitation for Jacob: he will render to him according to his ways, and according to his devices.
3上主要與以色列爭辯,要按他們的行徑懲罰雅各伯,依照他的行為報復他: 3In the womb he supplanted his brother: and by his strength he had success with an angel.
4他在母胎中就欺騙了他的弟兄,及至壯年又曾與天神搏鬥; 4And he prevailed over the angel, and was strengthened: he wept, and made supplication to him: he found him in Bethel, and there he spoke with us.
5他與天神搏鬥,並且獲得了勝利;他哭了,曾懇求他開恩;在貝特耳再遇見了他,在那裏天主對他說:── 5Even the Lord the God of hosts, the Lord is his memorial.
6上主,萬軍的天主,雅威是他的名號── 6Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment, and hope in thy God always.
7「至於你,你應當歸向你的天主,遵守仁愛和正義,時刻仰望你的天主。」 7He is like Chanaan, there is a deceitful balance in his hand, he hath loved oppression.
8厄弗辣因有如客納罕人,手裏拿著欺詐的天秤,喜行欺騙。 8And Ephraim said: But yet I am become rich, I have found me an idol: all my labours shall not find me the iniquity that I have committed.
9厄弗辣因還說:「我現在實在成了富翁,發了大財。」然而他所獲得的一切,為補贖他所犯的罪孽,仍嫌不夠。 9And I that am the Lord thy God from the land of Egypt, will yet cause thee to dwell in tabernacles, as in the days of the feast.
10自從在埃及地時,我就是上主,你的天主:我必再使你住在帳幕中,如在盛會的節日一樣。 10And I have spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and I have used similitudes by the ministry of the prophets.
11是我向先知們說了話,是我增多了異象,我也必藉先知們消滅他們。 11If Galaad be an idol, then in vain were they in Galgal offering sacrifices with bullocks: for their altars also are as heaps in the furrows of the field.
12在基肋阿得只有罪惡,的確,他們只是虛無;在基耳加耳他們向牛犢獻了祭,因此他們的祭壇必將成為田畦中的石堆。 12Jacob fled into the country of Syria, and Israel served for a wife, and was a keeper for a wife.
13雅各伯曾逃到阿蘭平原,以色列曾為娶妻而服役,曾為娶妻而放羊。 13But the Lord by a prophet brought Israel out of Egypt: and he was preserved by a prophet.
14上主曾藉一位先知領以色列出離埃及,也藉一位先知保護了他們。 14Ephraim hath provoked me to wrath with his bitterness, and his blood shall come upon him, and his Lord will render his reproach unto him.
15但厄弗辣因大大激怒了上主,因此,他的血債必要歸到他身上,他的主必要在他身上報復自己所受的凌辱。 15
