岳厄爾 Joel
1上主的話傳給培突耳的兒子岳厄爾: 1The word of the Lord that came to Joel the son of Phatuel.
2老人們,你們應聽這事!地上的一切居民,你們應側耳細聽!在你們的時日,或在你們祖先的時日,是否曾有過這樣的事? 2Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land: did this ever happen in your days, or in the days of your fathers?
3你們應將這事告訴你們的子孫;你們的子孫應傳給他們的子孫;他們的子孫又應傳給下一代: 3Tell ye of this to your children, and let your children tell their children, and their children to another generation.
4蝻子吃剩的,飛蝗來吃了;飛蝗吃剩的,螽斯來吃了;螽斯吃剩的,蚱蜢來吃了。 4That which the palmerworm hath left, the locust hath eaten: and that which the locust hath left, the bruchus hath eaten: and that which the bruchus hath left, the mildew hath destroyed.
5醉漢,你們醒來慟哭罷!一切愛喝酒的人,為了新酒悲泣罷!因為已由你們嘴邊奪去了。 5Awake, ye that are drunk, and weep, and mourn all ye that take delight in drinking sweet wine: for it is cut off from your mouth.
6因為有一個民族侵入了我的地域,既強大而又不可勝數;他們的牙有如獅子的牙,臼齒有如母獅的臼齒。 6For a nation is come up upon my land, strong and without number: his teeth are like the teeth of a lion: and his cheek teeth as of a lion's whelp.
7他們蹂躪了我的葡萄園,折斷了我的無花果樹,將樹皮完全剝掉,使樹枝光禿發白。 7He hath laid my vineyard waste, and hath pilled off the bark of my fig tree: he hath stripped it bare, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white.
8你哀傷罷!如同一個身披喪服的處女,哀哭她青年的未婚夫。 8Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth.
9上主殿中的素祭和奠祭已中斷;上主的僕人──司祭都悲哀不已。 9Sacrifice and libation is cut off from the house of the Lord: the priests, the Lord's ministers, have mourned:
10田園已荒廢,土地已悽涼;因為五穀已遭蹂躪,美酒已枯竭,油已乾涸。 10The country is destroyed, the ground hath mourned: for the corn is wasted, the wine is confounded, the oil hath languished.
11農夫,你們應哀哭!葡萄園丁,你們應為了小麥和大麥而號咷!因為田園的出產巳遭破壞。 11The husbandmen are ashamed, the vinedressers have howled for the wheat, and for the barley, because the harvest of the field is perished.
12葡萄樹枯槁了,無花果樹凋謝了;石榴樹、棕樹、蘋果樹,以及田間的一切果樹都枯死了;為此喜樂已由人間消失。 12The vineyard is confounded, and the fig tree hath languished: the pomegranate tree, and the palm tree, and the apple tree, and all the trees of the field are withered: because joy is withdrawn from the children of men.
13司祭,你們應披上麻衣而哀悼!服務祭壇的人,你們應號咷!我天主的僕人,你們應進來,披上麻衣過夜!因為素祭和奠祭在你們天主的殿內已中斷了。 13Gird yourselves, and lament, O ye priests, howl, ye ministers of the altars: go in, lie in sackcloth, ye ministers of my God: because sacrifice and libation is cut off from the house of your God.
14你們應制定一個齋期,召開一個盛會,聚集長老和當地的一切居民,在上主你們天主的殿內,向上主呼號。 14Sanctify ye a fast, call an assembly; gather together the ancients, all the inhabitants of the land into the house of your God: and cry ye to the Lord:
15啊,那日子啊!上主的日子來近了,它來有如全能者施行毀滅。 15Ah, ah, ah, for the day: because the day of the Lord is at hand, and it shall come like destruction from the mighty.
16食物不是在我們眼前斷絕了嗎?喜樂和歡欣不是離開了我們天主的殿嗎? 16Is not your food cut off before your eyes, joy and gladness from the house of our God?
17麥粒已在土塊下腐爛,糧倉業已荒廢,廩房業已坍塌,因為五穀都枯死了。 17The beasts have rotted in their dung, the barns are destroyed, the storehouses are broken down: because the corn is confounded.
18牲畜為什麼悲鳴?牛群為什麼徬徨?因為沒有了草場;連羊群也感絕望。 18Why did the beast groan, why did the herds of cattle low? because there is no pasture for them: yea, and the flocks of sheep are perished.
19上主,我向你呼號,因為烈火吞滅了原野的牧場,火焰焚燒了田間的一切樹木。 19To thee, O Lord, will I cry: because fire hath devoured the beautiful places of the wilderness, and the flame hath burnt all the trees of the country.
20連野獸也向你懇切哀鳴,因為水流已枯竭,烈火又吞滅了原野的牧場。 20Yea and the beasts of the field have looked up to thee, as a garden bed that thirsteth after rain, for the springs of waters are dried up, and fire hath devoured the beautiful places of the wilderness.
