箴言 Proverbs
1人若屢受譴責,仍然頑固,他必突然喪亡,無法挽救。1The man that with a stiff neck despiseth him that reproveth him, shall suddenly be destroyed: and health shall not follow him.
2義人執政,人民喜慶;惡人專權,人民嘆息。2When just men increase, the people shall rejoice: when the wicked shall bear rule, the people shall mourn.
3喜愛智慧的,使父親喜悅;尋花問柳的,必傾家蕩產。3A man that loveth wisdom, rejoiceth his father: but he that maintaineth bar lots, shall squander away his substance.
4君王秉公行義,必將興邦;但若暴歛橫徵,必將喪邦。4A just king setteth up the land: a covetous man shall destroy it.
5對自己的友伴阿諛的人,是在他腳下張設羅網。5A man that speaketh to his friend with flattering and dissembling words, spreadeth a net for his feet.
6作惡的人,滿路絆索;正義的人,載欣載奔。6A snare shall entangle the wicked man when he sinneth: and the just shall praise and rejoice.
7義人關注窮人的案情,但是惡人卻毫不知情。7The just taketh notice of the cause of the poor: the wicked is void of knowledge.
8輕狂的人,煽動城市作亂;明智的人,設法挽回狂瀾。8Corrupt men bring a city to ruin: but wise men turn away wrath.
9智愚爭辯,或怒或笑,終無結果。9If a wise man contend with a fool, whether he be angry or laugh, he shall find no rest.
10嗜殺的人,常憎恨正人君子;正直的人,卻關懷他的性命。10Bloodthirsty men hate the upright: but just men seek his soul.
11愚人忿怒,必盡情發洩;明智的人,必自知抑制。11A fool uttereth all his mind: a wise man deferreth, and keepeth it till afterwards.
12作首長的,如聽信讒言,他的臣僕,必盡屬小人。12A prince that gladly heareth lying words, hath all his servants wicked.
13窮人與壓迫者彼此相遇,二者皆由主獲得光明。13The poor man and the creditor have met one another: the Lord is the enlightener of them both.
14君王如秉公審判窮人,他的寶座必永久穩立。14The king that judgeth the poor in truth, his throne shall be established for ever.
15杖責與懲戒,賜予人智慧;嬌縱的孩子,使母親受辱。15The rod and reproof give wisdom: but the child that is left to his own will bringeth his mother to shame.
16惡人掌權,罪惡隨之增多;正義的人,必親見其崩潰。16When the wicked are multiplied, crimes shall be multiplied: but the just shall see their downfall.
17懲戒你的兒子,他必使你安心,令你心曠神怡。17Instruct thy son, and he shall refresh thee, and shall give delight to thy soul.
18神視缺乏時,人民必放縱;遵守法律的,纔蒙受祝福。18When prophecy shall fail, the people shall be scattered abroad: but he that keepeth the law is blessed.
19要糾正奴才,不宜用言語;即使他明白,他仍不服從。19A slave will not be corrected by words: because he understandeth what thou sayest, and will not answer.
20你是否見過信口開河的人?寄望於愚人勝於寄望於他。20Hast thou seen a man hasty to speak? folly is rather to be looked for, than his amendment.
21對奴才自幼加以嬌養,他日後終必反僕為主。21He that nourisheth his servant delicately from his childhood, afterwards shall find him stubborn.
22易怒的人,極易引起紛爭;性急的人,必犯很多過錯。22A passionate man provoketh quarrels: and he that is easily stirred up to wrath, shall be more prone to sin.
23驕傲自大,使人屈辱;虛心謙下,使人受榮。23Humiliation followeth the proud: and glory shall uphold the humble of spirit.
24誰與盜賊合夥,實是痛恨自己;他雖聽見咀咒,卻不敢發一言。24He that is partaker with a thief, hateth his own soul: he heareth one putting him to his oath, and discovereth not.
25對人畏懼,必陷入羈絆;信賴上主,必獲得安全。25He that feareth man, shall quickly fall: he that trusteth in the Lord, shall be set on high.
26許多人尋求王侯的慈惠,但每人的判決出自上主。26Many seek the face of the prince: but the judgment of every one cometh forth from the Lord.
27為非作歹的人,為義人所憎惡;行為正直的人,為惡人所憎惡。27The just abhor the wicked man: and the wicked loathe them that are in the right way. The son that keepeth the word, shall be free from destruction.
