耶肋米亞 Jeremiah
1關於巴比倫和加色丁地上主藉耶肋米亞先知所說的話:1The word that the Lord hath spoken against Babylon, and against the land of the Chaldeans in the hand of Jeremias the prophet.
2你們該在民族間宣布傳揚,該樹起旗幟傳揚,不該隱瞞說:「巴比倫已陷落了,貝耳遭受了羞辱,默洛達客傾倒了;她的偶像遭受了恥辱,她的神祇傾倒了。」2Declare ye among the nations, and publish it, lift up a standard: proclaim, and conceal it not: say: Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is overthrown, their graven things are confounded, their idols are overthrown.
3因為有一民族從北方上來,向她進攻,使她的國土化為無人居住,人獸絕跡的荒野。3For a nation is come up against her out of the north, which shall make her land desolate: and there shall be none to dwell therein, from man even to beast: yea they are removed, and gone away.
4在那些日子裡和在那時期中──上主的斷語──以色列子民要與猶大子民一同歸來,且走且哭,尋覓上主他們的天主,4In those days, and at that time, saith the Lord, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Juda together: going and weeping they shall make haste, and shall seek the Lord their God.
5他們必詢問熙雍的所在,面朝往那裡的道路說:來,讓我們以永久不可忘的盟約依附上主!」5They shall ask the way to Sion, their faces are hitherward. They shall come, and shall be joined to the Lord by an everlasting covenant, which shall never be forgotten.
6我的人民是一群迷途的羊群,他們的牧人使他們流浪,在群山間徘徊,翻山越嶺地漫遊,忘掉了自己的羊棧。6My people have been a lost flock, their shepherds have caused them to go astray, and have made them wander in the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their resting place.
7凡遇見他們的,就將他們吞噬;他們的仇敵反而說:「我們並沒有過錯,因為是他們得罪了上主,正義的淵源和他們祖先的希望。」7All that found them, have devoured them: and their enemies said: We have not sinned in so doing: because they have sinned against the Lord the beauty of justice, and against the Lord the hope of their fathers.
8你們該逃離巴比倫,走出加色丁地,如同羊群前領頭的公山羊。8Remove out of the midst of Babylon, and go forth out of the land of the Chaldeans: and be ye as kids at the head of the flock.
9因為,看,我必從北方,發動一群強盛的民族前來進攻巴比倫,列陣向她進攻,就地將她攻陷;他們的箭像是善戰的勇士,從不空手而歸。9For behold I raise up, and will bring against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the land of the north: and they shall be prepared against her, and from thence she shall be taken: their arrows, like those of a mighty man, a destroyer, shall not return in vain.
10加色丁必遭劫掠,凡劫掠她的,必心滿意足──上主的斷語。10And Chaldea shall be made a prey: all that waste her shall be filled, saith the Lord.
11你們搶奪我產業的人,你們儘管喜樂,儘管歡欣:跳躍,好像踏青的小公牛;嘶鳴,有如獲偶的牡馬!11Because you rejoice, and speak great things, pillaging my inheritance: because you are spread abroad as calves upon the grass, and have bellowed as bulls.
12你們的母親已遭受極大的恥辱,生養你的,已滿面羞慚。看,她已成為民族中最卑下的,成了曠野、旱地和荒原;12Your mother is confounded exceedingly, and she that bore you is made even with the dust: behold she shall be the last among the nations, a wilderness unpassable, and dry.
13在上主的盛怒下,她已無人居住,滿目淒涼:凡經過巴比倫的人,看見她的種種慘狀,莫不驚異嗟嘆。13Because of the wrath of the Lord it shall not be inhabited, but shall be wholly desolate: every one that shall pass by Babylon, shall be astonished, and shall hiss at all her plagues.
14一切開張弓弩的射手!你們應列陣圍攻巴比倫,向她射擊,不要吝惜箭羽,因為她得罪了上主。14Prepare yourselves against Babylon round about, all you that bend the bow: fight against her, spare not arrows: because she hath sinned against the Lord.
15你們四周圍繞,向她吶喊!她必伸手請降,她的城樓必將陷落,她的城牆必要被攻陷,因為這是上主的報復。你們報復她,照她作的還報!15Shout against her, she hath everywhere given her hand, her foundations are fallen, her walls are thrown down, for it is the vengeance of the Lord. Take vengeance upon her: as she hath done, so do to her.
16你們要殲滅巴比倫播種和手持鐮刀收割的人!面臨無情的刀劍,各人回歸自己的民族,各自逃往自己的故鄉。16Destroy the sower out of Babylon, and him that holdeth the sickle in the time of harvest: for fear of the sword of the dove every man shall return to his people, and every one shall flee to his own land.
17以色列是獅子追捕的亡羊,首先吞噬她的,是亞述君王;最後咬碎她骨骸的,是拿步高巴比倫王。17Israel is a scattered flock, the lions have driven him away: first the king of Assyria devoured him: and last this Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon hath broken his bones.
18為此,萬軍的上主,以色列的天主這樣說:「看,我要懲罰巴比倫王和他的國土,就如我懲罰了亞述君王一樣。18Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts the God of Israel: Behold I will visit the king of Babylon and his land, as I have visited the king of Assyria.
19我要領以色列回歸自己的牧場,在加爾默耳和巴商牧放,使他們的心靈在厄弗辣因與基肋阿得山上,獲得滿足。19And I will bring Israel again to his habitation: and he shall feed on Carmel, and Bason, and his soul shall be satisfied in mount Ephraim, and Galaad.
20那些日子裡和在那時期中──上主的斷語──要想尋求以色列的不義,卻一無所有;要想尋求猶大的罪惡,卻一無所見;因為我必寬恕我留下的遺民。20In those days, and at that time, saith the Lord, the iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none: and the sin of Juda, and there shall none be found: for I will be merciful to them, whom I shall leave.
21你們該向默辣塔因地推進,進攻培科得的居民,屠殺,徹底將他們消滅──上主的斷語──全照我吩咐的進行。21Go up against the land of the rulers, and punish the inhabitants thereof, waste, and destroy all behind them, saith the Lord: and do according to all that I have commanded thee.
22地上發生了交戰的吶喊,巨大的毀滅。22A noise of war in the land, and a great destruction.
23怎麼,威震全地的鎚子也被破碎毀壞了?怎麼,巴比倫在萬民中也變得如此凄涼?23How is the hammer of the whole earth broken, and destroyed! how is Babylon turned into a desert among the nations!
24我給你佈下羅網,你竟被捉住;而你,巴比倫,尚不自覺;你被尋獲,且被捉住,因為你竟敢違抗上主!」24I have caused thee to fall into a snare, and thou art taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware of it: thou art found and caught, because thou hast provoked the Lord.
25上主開了自己的武庫,搬出了自己洩怒的武器,因為吾主萬軍的上主,在加色丁地有事要完成。25The Lord hath opened his armoury, and hath brought forth the weapons of his wrath: for the Lord the God of hosts hath a work to be done in the land of the Chaldeans.
26你們從四面八方向她湧來,打開她的倉庫,堆積成堆,徹底消滅,不給她留下殘餘;26Come ye against her from the uttermost borders: open that they may go forth that shall tread her down: take the stones out of the way, and make heaps, and destroy her: and let nothing of her be left.
27屠殺她的一切公牛,叫他們下入屠場!他們的災難臨頭,因為他們的日子到了,到了懲罰他們的時候。27Destroy all her valiant men, let them go down to the slaughter: woe to them, for their day is come, the time of their visitation.
28聽從巴比倫地逃命出走的人,在熙雍報告說:「上主我們的天主在復仇,為自己的殿宇雪恥。28The voice of them that flee, and of them that have escaped out of the land of Babylon: to declare in Sion the revenge of the Lord our God, the revenge of his temple.
29你們召集弓手,一切挽弓的人,來向巴比倫進攻,在她周圍紮營,不要讓她有人逃脫,該按照她的作為而報復她,照她所作的對待她,因為她傲慢反對上主,反對以色列的聖者。29Declare to many against Babylon, to all that bend the bow: stand together against her round about, and let nose escape; pay her according to her work: according to all that she hath done, do ye to her: for she hath lifted up herself against the Lord, against the Holy One of Israel.
30為此,她的青年人要倒斃在她的廣場,她所有的戰士都要在那一天內滅亡──上主的斷語──30Therefore shall her young men fall in her streets: and all her men of war shall hold their peace in that day, saith the Lord.
31你這驕橫的人!看,我來對付你──我主萬軍上主的斷語──因為你的日子到了,到了懲罰你的時候。31Behold I come against thee, O proud one, saith the Lord the God of hosts: for thy day is come, the time of thy visitation.
32驕橫的必要傾覆顛仆,再沒有人來使她復興;我必放火燒毀她的城市,火要吞滅她四周的一切。」32And the proud one shall fall, he shall fall down, and there shall be none to lift him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him.
33萬軍的上主這樣說:「以色列子民與猶大子民一同遭受了壓迫;凡俘擄他們的,都扣留他們,不肯釋放。」33Thus saith the Lord of hosts: The children of Israel, and the children of Juda are oppressed together: all that have taken them captives, hold them fast, they will not let them go.
34但是,他們的救贖者,名叫萬軍的上主,剛強有力,必要辯護他們的案件,使大地安寧,使巴比倫的居民惶亂。34Their redeemer is strong, the Lord of hosts is his name: he will defend their cause in judgment, to terrify the land, and to disquiet the inhabitants of Babylon.
35刀劍加於加色丁人──上主的斷語──加於巴比倫的居民,她的公卿和她的謀臣;35A sword is upon the Chaldeans, saith the Lord, and upon the inhabitants of Babylon, and upon her princes, and upon her wise men.
36刀劍加於她的巫士,使他們瘋狂;刀劍加於她的勇士,叫他們驚慌;36A sword upon her diviners, and they shall be foolish: a sword upon her valiant ones, and they shall be dismayed.
37刀劍加於她的戰馬戰車,加於境內所有雜族,使他們柔弱如婦女;刀劍加於她的府庫,使人任意搶奪;37A sword upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the people that are in the midst of her: and they shall become as women: a sword upon her treasures, and they shall be made a spoil.
38刀劍加於她的水源,叫水源涸竭,因為她偶像遍地,人們癡戀這些怪物;38A drought upon her waters, and they shall be dried up: because it is a land of idols, and they glory in monstrous things.
39為此,她必成為野貓和野狗的巢穴,駝鳥的棲身地,永遠不會有人居住,世世代代不會有居民;39Therefore shall dragons dwell there with the fig fauns: and ostriches shall dwell therein, and it shall be no more inhabited for ever, neither shall it be built up from generation to generation.
40恰如天主滅亡了的索多瑪、哈摩辣及附近的城市一樣──上主的斷語──再沒有人居住,再沒有人留宿。40As the Lord overthrew Sodom and Gomorrha, and their neighbour cities, saith the Lord: no man shall dwell there, neither shall the son of man inhabit it.
41看,有一個民族,從北方來,有一個強盛異邦和許多君王從地極興起,41Behold a people cometh from the north, and a great nation, and many kings shall rise from the ends of the earth.
42緊握弓矛,殘忍無情,像海嘯般喧嚷,騎著戰馬,萬眾一心,嚴陣準備向你進攻,巴比倫女郎!42They shall take the bow and the shield: they are cruel and unmerciful: their voice shall roar like the sea, and they shall ride upon horses: like a man prepared for battle against thee, O daughter of Babylon.
43巴比倫王聽到了他們前來的消息,束手無策,不勝憂慮,痛苦得有如臨盆的產婦。43The king of Babylon hath heard the report of them, and his hands are grown feeble: anguish hath taken hold of him, pangs as a, woman in labour.
44看哪,好像一隻雄獅,從約但的叢林上來,走向常綠的牧場;同樣,我也要轉瞬間將他們趕走,派我選定的人來統治。誠然,誰是我的對手?誰敢向我提出質問?誰能對抗我的牧人?44Behold he shall come up like a lion from the swelling of the Jordan to the strong and beautiful: for I will make him run suddenly upon her: and who shall be the chosen one whom I may appoint over her? for who is like to me? and who shall bear up against me? and who is that shepherd that can withstand my countenance?
45為此,請你們聽上主對巴比倫設下的計謀,對加色丁地策劃的策略:連最弱小的羊也一定要被人牽去,他們的牧場也必對他們戰慄。45Therefore hear ye the counsel of the Lord, which he hath taken against Babylon: and his thoughts which he hath thought against the land of the Chaldeans: surely the little ones of the flocks shall pull them down, of a truth their habitation shall be destroyed with them.
46巴比倫轟然陷落,大地為之震動;哀號之聲,直達萬邦。46At the noise of the taking of Babylon the earth is moved, and the cry is heard amongst the nations.
