米該亞 Micah
1我曾經說過:「雅各伯的首領,以色列家的官吏,請你們傾聽!認識正義,豈不是你們分內的事?」 1And I said: Hear, O ye princes of Jacob, and ye chiefs of the house of Israel: Is it not your part to know judgment,
2然而他們惡善好惡,從平民身上剝下他們的皮,從骨頭上剔下他們的肉。 2You that hate good, and love evil: that violently pluck off their skins from them, and their flesh from their bones?
3他們吞食我百姓的肉,剝去他們的皮,折斷他們的骨頭,將他們切成碎塊,如釜中的肉,如鼎中的肉。 3Who have eaten the flesh of my people, and have flayed their skin from off them: and have broken, and chopped their bones as for the kettle, and as flesh in the midst of the pot.
4當他們呼求上主時,上主決不俯聽他們;反要掩面不理他們,因為他們行了窮凶極惡的事。 4Then shall they cry to the Lord, and he will not hear them: and he will hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved wickedly in their devices.
5論及迷惑我百姓的先知,上主這樣說:當他們的牙齒有咀嚼的東西時,他們便呼喊:「和平。」但凡不將食物送到他們口上的,他們便宣佈:「戰爭。」 5Thus saith the Lord concerning the prophets that make my people err: that bite with their teeth, and preach peace: and if a man give not something into their mouth, they prepare war against him.
6因此,為你們只有黑夜而沒有神視,只有黑暗而沒有神諭;太陽必為先知而沒落,白晝必為他們而變為黑暗。 6Therefore night shall be to you instead of vision, and darkness to you instead of divination; and the sun shall go down upon the prophets, and the day shall be darkened over them.
7先知必將抱愧,巫士必將蒙羞,他們都要掩住自己的鬍鬚,因為沒有天主的答覆。 7And they shall be confounded that see visions, and the diviners shall be confounded: and they shall all cover their faces, because there is no answer of God.
8至於我,我因上主的神而充滿力量、正義和勇氣,向雅各伯指出她的邪惡,向以色列說明她的罪過。 8But yet I am filled with the strength of the spirit of the Lord, with judgment, and power: to declare unto Jacob his wickedness, and to Israel his sin.
9雅各伯家的首領,以色列家的官吏,請你們傾聽這事!你們憎惡正義,曲解一切正理; 9Hear this, ye princes of the house of Jacob, and ye judges of the house of Israel: you that abhor judgment, and pervert all that is right.
10你們以血債建築熙雍,用邪惡建設耶路撒冷。 10You that build up Sion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.
11她的首領為賄賂而審判,司祭為薪俸而設教,先知為銀錢而占卜,尚依賴上主說:「上主不是在我們中間嗎?災禍決不會臨於我們身上!」 11Her princes have judged for bribes, and her priests have taught for hire, and her prophets divined for money: and they leaned upon the Lord, saying: Is not the Lord in the midst of us? no evil shall come upon us.
12因此,為了你們的緣故,熙雍必被耕耘有如一塊田地,耶路撒冷必成為一堆廢墟,聖殿山必成為叢林中的一個丘陵。 12Therefore, because of you, Sion shall be ploughed as a field, and Jerusalem shall be as a heap of stones, and the mountain of the temple as the high places of the forests.
