哀歌 Lamentations
1怎麼!上主竟然發怒,使熙雍女郎暗淡無光!將以色列的榮華由高天拋在地上!在他震怒之日,不再想念自己的腳凳! 1Aleph. How hath the Lord covered with obscurity the daughter of Sion in his wrath! how hath he cast down from heaven to the earth the glorious one of Israel, and hath not remembered his footstool in the day of his anger!
2上主毫不留情地破壞了雅各伯所有的牧場;他滿含怒氣,夷平了猶大女郎的一切堡壘;將她的君王及首長推倒在地,加以侮辱。 2Beth. The Lord hath cast down headlong, and hath not spared, all that was beautiful in Jacob: he hath destroyed in his wrath the strong holds of the virgin of Juda, and brought them down to the ground: he hath made the kingdom unclean, and the princes thereof.
3他怒火炎炎,粉碎了以色列的一切勢力;在仇人前,抽回他的右手;他像吞滅四周的烈火,焚燒了雅各伯; 3Ghimel. He hath broken in his fierce anger all the horn of Israel: he hath drawn back his right hand from before the enemy: and he hath kindled in Jacob as it were a flaming fire devouring round about.
4他像敵人一樣,安穩地舉起自己的右手,拉開他的弓。像敵人似的,屠殺了一切英俊的少年;在熙雍女郎的帳幕內,發洩了他似火的烈怒。 4Daleth. He hath bent his bow as an enemy, he hath fixed his right hand as an adversary: and he hath killed all that was fair to behold in the tabernacle of the daughter of Sion, he hath poured out his indignation like fire.
5上主好像一個仇人,毀滅了以色列,毀滅了她所有的宮室,蕩平了她的一切堡壘,增加猶大女郎的哀號哭泣。 5He. The Lord is become as an enemy: he hath cast down Israel headlong, he hath overthrown all the walls thereof: he hath destroyed his strong holds, and hath multiplied in the daughter of Juda the afflicted, both men and women.
6上主像破壞園圃一樣,破壞了他自己的帷幔,毀滅了自己的會幕,使人在熙雍忘卻慶節和安息日;他在烈怒下,廢棄了君王和司祭。 6Vau. And he hath destroyed his tent as a garden, he hath thrown down his tabernacle: the Lord hath caused feasts and sabbaths to be forgotten in Sion: and hath delivered up king and priest to reproach, and to the indignation of his wrath.
7上主厭棄了自己的祭壇,嫌惡了自己的聖所;將宮殿的牆垣交在敵人手中,讓他們在上主的殿宇內,叫囂喧嚷,好像節日一樣。 7Zain. The Lord hath cast off his altar, he hath cursed his sanctuary: he hath delivered the walls of the towers thereof into the hand of the enemy: they have made a noise in the house of the Lord, as in the day of a solemn feast.
8上主已經決意毀壞熙雍女郎的牆垣,既展開了繩索,決不抽回自己的手,直到將它完全推翻,使城郭和堡壘哀哭,一同傾覆。 8Heth. The Lord hath purposed to destroy the wall of the daughter of Sion: he hath stretched out his line, and hath not withdrawn his hand from destroying: and the bulwark hath mourned, and the wall hath been destroyed together.
9城門已陷於地中,上主已折斷她的門閂,她的君王首長,流落異鄉,再沒有法律;她的眾先知也不再獲得上主的神視。 9Teth. Her gates are sunk into the ground: he hath destroyed, and broken her bars: her king and her princes are among the Gentiles: the law is no more, and her prophets have found no vision from the Lord.
10熙雍女郎的眾長老,坐在地上默然不語,頭上撒上灰土,腰間朿着麻衣;耶路撒冷的處女都俯首至地。 10Jod. The ancients of the daughter of Sion sit upon the ground, they have held their peace: they have sprinkled their heads with dust, they are girded with haircloth, the virgins of Jerusalem hang down their heads to the ground.
11我的眼痛哭,至於失明,五內沸騰,肝腦塗地。眼見我的女兒—人民遭受摧殘,眼看着幼童乳兒昏厥在城中的街道上。 11Caph. My eyes have failed with weeping, my bowels are troubled: my liver is poured out upon the earth, for the destruction of the daughter of my people, when the children, and the sucklings, fainted away in the streets of the city.
12他們對母親說:「那裏有餅有酒?」他們在城中的街道上,正奄奄一息,有如受傷的人,在母親的懷中,氣絕夭折! 12Lamed. They said to their mothers: Where is corn and wine? when they fainted away as the wounded in the streets of the city: when they breathed out their souls in the bosoms of their mothers.
13耶路撒冷女郎!我可用甚麼來譬喻你,拿甚麼來比擬你呢?處女,熙雍女郎!我可用甚麼來幫助你,拿甚麼來安慰你呢?因為你的創傷,浩大如海,又有誰能夠治愈你? 13Mem. To what shall I compare thee? or to what shall I liken thee, O daughter of Jerusalem? to what shall I equal thee, that I may comfort thee, O virgin daughter of Sion? for great as the sea is thy destruction: who shall heal thee?
14你的眾先知有關你的神視,盡是虛幻欺詐;他們從未揭露你的罪惡,以挽回你的命運;他們關於你所提供的神諭,盡是虛幻和騙局。 14Nun. Thy prophets have seen false and foolish things for thee: and they have not laid open thy iniquity, to excite thee to penance: but they have seen for thee false revelations and banishments.
15所有過路的人,都向你鼓掌,向耶路撒冷女郎噓唏,且搖頭說:「難道這就是人人所說美麗無比,全世界的喜悅?」 15Samech. All they that passed by the way have clapped their hands at thee: they have hissed, and wagged their heads at the daughter of Jerusalem, saying: Is this the city of perfect beauty, the joy of all the earth?
16你的仇人都向你張開口,噓唏而切齒說:「我們終於吞滅了她!這就是我們所期待的一日,我們終於得到手,終於看見了!」 16Phe. All thy enemies have opened their mouth against thee: they have hissed, and gnashed with the teeth, and have said: We will swallow her up: lo, this is the day which we looked for: we have found it, we have seen it.
17上主實踐了自己的計劃,完成了他昔日所宣告的斷語;實行破壞,毫無憐憫,使仇人幸災樂禍,使敵人高舉他的角。 17Ain. The Lord hath done that which he purposed, he hath fulfilled his word, which he commanded in the days of old: he hath destroyed, and hath not spared, and he hath caused the enemy to rejoice over thee, and hath set up the horn of thy adversaries.
18處女,熙雍女郎!你應該從心裏呼號上主;白天黑夜,讓眼淚像江河般地湧流,不要歇息,也不要讓你的眼睛休息。 18Sade. Their heart cried to the Lord upon the walls of the daughter of Sion: Let tears run down like a torrent day and night: give thyself no rest, and let not the apple of thy eye cease.
19夜間每到交更時分,你該起來哀禱,像傾水似的,向上主傾訴你心;應為了你嬰兒的性命,向上主舉起你的雙手,因為他們因饑餓而昏迷街頭! 19Coph. Arise, give praise in the night, in the beginning of the watches: pour out thy heart like water before the face of the Lord: lift up thy hands to him for the life of thy little children, that have fainted for hunger at the top of all the streets.
20上主,請你迴目憐視!你這樣做,究竟是對付誰呢?難道婦女應該吃掉自己的兒子?吃掉自己孕育的嬰兒?難道在上主的聖所裏,應該殺死司祭和先知? 20Res. Behold, O Lord, and consider whom thou hast thus dealt with: shall women then eat their own fruit, their children of a span long? shall the priest and the prophet be slain in the sanctuary of the Lord?
21街上遍地躺臥的,盡是孩童和老人;喪身刀下的,盡是我的處女和少年;在你震怒之日,你斬殺誅戮,毫不留情。 21Sin. The child and the old man lie without on the ground: my virgins and my young men are fallen by the sword: thou hast slain them in the day of thy wrath: thou hast killed, and shewn them no pity.
22你由四方給我召來施行恐怖的人,好像過節一樣;在上主發怒之日,無人能夠逃脫,或者幸免;我孕育撫養的,我的仇人都殺盡滅絕。 22Thau. Thou hast called as to a festival, those that should terrify me round about, and there was none in the day of the wrath of the Lord that escaped and was left: those that I brought up, and nourished, my enemy hath consumed them.
