依撒意亞 Isaiah
1巴比倫處女!下去,坐在塵土中罷!加色丁貞女!讓位,坐在地上罷!因為你已不再稱為「嬌媚」「柔嫩」了。 1Come down, sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne for the daughter of the Chaldeans, for thou shalt no more be called delicate and tender.
2揭去面紗,拿磨去磨麵罷!捲起長裙,露出大腿去涉河罷! 2Take a millstone and grind meal: uncover thy shame, strip thy shoulder, make bare thy legs, pass over the rivers.
3你的裸體要暴露,你的羞恥要現出!我要復仇,決不憐惜任何人。 3Thy nakedness shall be discovered, and thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and no man shall resist me.
4我們的救主──他的名字是萬軍的上主──說。 4Our redeemer, the Lord of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel.
5加色丁處女!靜靜地坐下:進入黑暗中罷!因為你不再稱為「萬國之后!」 5Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called the lady of kingdoms.
6我曾向我的人民發怒,污辱了我的產業;我將他們交在你手中,可是你對他們沒有表示仁慈,將你的軛重重地壓在老者身上。 6I was angry with my people, I have polluted my inheritance, and have given them into thy bend: thou hast shewn no mercy to them: upon the ancient thou hast laid thy yoke exceeding heavy.
7你說過:「我永久要作王后!」但你心中從沒有考慮過這事,也沒有想過這事的結局。 7And thou hast said: I shall be a lady for ever: thou hast not laid these things to thy heart, neither hast thou remembered thy latter end.
8你這淫逸安居的人,你心裏想:「只有我而沒有別人!我決不會寡居,也決不會喪子!」如今你聽這話: 8And now hear these things, thou that art delicate, and dwellest confidently, that sayest in thy heart: I am, and there is none else besides me: I shall not sit as a widow, and I shall not know barrenness.
9這兩樣在一天內會突然一起降在你身上;雖然你能行許多巫術,能念極威力的符咒,喪子與守寡仍要完全降到你身上。 9These two things shall come upon thee suddenly in one day, barrenness and widowhood. All things are come upon thee, because of the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great hardness of thy enchanters.
10你自恃於惡說:「沒有人看見我!」那是你的聰明和知識迷惑了你,叫你心中妄想:「只有我而沒有別人。」 10And thou hast trusted in thy wickedness, and hast said: There is none that seeth me. Thy wisdom, and thy knowledge, this hath deceived thee. And thou hast said in thy heart: I am, and besides me there is no other.
11災禍必要臨到你身上,你卻不能禳災;患難要降在你身上,但你不能阻止;你從未料到的滅亡,要突然來到你身上。 11Evil shall come upon thee, and then shalt not know the rising thereof: and calamity shall fall violently upon thee, which thou canst not keep off: misery shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know.
12請你繼續行你自幼即勞碌習行的咒術和那無數的巫術罷!這或許能於你有利,或者能叫人害怕。 12Stand now with thy enchanters, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, in which thou hast laboured from thy youth, if so be it may profit thee any thing, or if thou mayst become stronger.
13你也許聽倦了那許多計謀,現在讓那些測天體,觀星辰和每月預告你未來之事的人們前來拯救你罷! 13Thou hast failed in the multitude or thy counsels: let now the astrologers stand and save thee, they that gazed at the stars, and counted the months, that from them they might tell the things that shall come to thee.
14看哪!他們都像枯草,必為火所焚燒;他們連自己也不能由火的威力中救出,因為這不是為取煖的炭火,也不是座前的爐火。 14Behold they are as stubble, fire hath burnt them, they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the dames: there are no coals wherewith they may be warmed, nor fire, that they may sit thereat.
15你那些自幼與之共同勞碌的巫士,為你都是如此;他們各散東西,沒有誰來救你。 15Such are all the things become to thee, in which thou hast laboured: thy merchants from thy youth, every one hath erred in his own way, there is none that can save thee.
