Jeremiah:Chapter 1


  Jeremiah:Chapter 1 Next
耶肋米亞 Jeremiah
1本雅明地內阿納托特城的司祭中,希耳克雅的兒子耶肋米亞的言行錄。 1The words of Jeremias the son of Helcias, of the priests that were in Anathoth, in the land of Benjamin.
2上主的話傳給他,是在阿孟的兒子約史雅為猶大王執政第十三年; 2The word of the Lord which came to him in the days of Josias the son of Amon king of Juda, in the thirteenth year of his reign.
3以後傳給他,是在約史雅的兒子約雅金為猶大王,直到約史雅的兒子漆德克雅為猶大王第十一年年底,即直到是年五月,耶路撒冷居民被擄去充軍時為止。 3And which came to him in the days of Joakim the son of Josias king of Juda, unto the end of the eleventh year of Sedecias the son of Josias king of Juda, even unto the carrying away of Jerusalem captive, in the fifth month.
4上主對我說: 4And the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
5「我還沒有在母腹內形成你以前,我已認識了你;在你還沒有出離母胎以前,我已祝聖了你,選定了你作萬民的先知。」 5Before I formed thee in the bowels of thy mother, I knew thee: and before thou camest forth out of the womb, I sanctified thee, and made thee a prophet unto the nations.
6我回答說:「哎呀!我主上主!你看,我還太年輕,不會說話。」 6And I said: Ah, ah, ah, Lord God: behold, I cannot speak, for I am a child.
7上主對我說:「你別說:我太年輕,因為我派你到那裏去,你就應到那裏去;我命你說甚麼,你就應說甚麼。 7And the Lord said to me: Say not: I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee: and whatsoever I shall command thee, thou shalt speak.
8你不要害怕他們,因為有我與你同在,保護你──上主的斷語。」 8Be not afraid at their presence: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord.
9此後,上主伸出手來,觸摸我的口,對我說;「看,我將我的話放在你口中; 9And the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth: and the Lord said to me: Behold I have given my words in thy mouth:
10看,我今天委派你對萬民和列國,執行拔除、破壞、毀滅、推翻、建設和栽培的任務。」 10Lo, I have set thee this day over the nations, and over the kingdoms, to root up, and pull down, and to waste, and to destroy, and to build, and to plant.
11上主的話傳給我說:「耶肋米亞!你看見甚麼?」我回答說:「我看見一根杏樹枝。」 11And the word of the Lord came to me, saying: What seest thou, Jeremias? And I said: I see a rod watching.
12上主對我說:「你看的對,因為我要警醒,看我的話怎樣實現。」 12And the Lord said to me: Thou hast seen well: for I will watch over my word to perform it.
13上主的話二次傳給我說:「你看見甚麼?」我回答說:「我看見一個沸騰的鍋,它的口由北面傾倒過來。」 13And the word of the Lord came to me a second time, saying: What seest thou? I see a boiling caldron, and the face thereof from the face of the north.
14上主對我說:「災禍將由北方燒起,一直燒到這地上的一切居民。 14And the Lord said to me: from the north shall an evil break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land.
15看啊,我必召集北方的一切國家──上主的斷語──叫各國前來,在耶路撒冷城門口,在城牆四周以及猶大各城市旁,建立自己的寶座。 15For behold I will call together all the families of the kingdoms of the north: saith the Lord: and they shall come, and shall set every one his throne in the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem, and upon all the walls thereof round about, and upon all the cities of Juda,
16我要向各城市的人民宣告我的判決,懲罰他們的一切罪惡,因為他們離棄我,向別的神祇獻香,崇拜了他們手製的作品。 16And I will pronounce my judgements against them, touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have sacrificed to strange gods, and have adored the work of their own hands.
17至於你,你要朿上腰,起來向他們傳示我命令你的一切。在他們面前,你不要畏懼,免得我在他們面前令你畏懼。 17Thou therefore gird up thy loins, and arise, and speak to them all that I command thee. Be not afraid at their presence: for I will make thee not to fear their countenance.
18看啊,我今天使你成為堅城、銅牆、鐵壁,以對抗猶大君王和首領,司祭和當地的人民。 18For behold I have made thee this day a fortified city, and a pillar of iron, and a wall of brass, over all the land, to the kings of Juda, to the princes thereof, and to the priests, and to the people of the land.
19他們要攻擊你,卻不能得勝你,因為有我與你同在,協助你──上主的斷語。」 19And they shall fight against thee, and shall not prevail: for I am with thee, saith the Lord, to deliver thee.
