若望默示錄 Revelation
1那時,天上出現了一個大異兆:有一個女人,身披太陽,腳踏月亮,頭戴十二顆星的榮冠; 1And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars:
2她胎中懷了孕,在產痛和苦勞中,呼疼呻吟。 2And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered.
3隨著天上又出現了另一個異兆:有一條火紅的大龍,有七個頭,十隻角,頭上戴著七個王冠。 3And there was seen another sign in heaven: and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads, and ten horns: and on his head seven diadems:
4牠的尾巴將天上的星辰勾下了三分之一,投在地上。那條龍便站在那要生產的女人面前,待她生產後,要吞下她的孩子。 4And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered; that, when she should be delivered, he might devour her son.
5那女人生了一個男孩子,他就是那要以鐵杖牧放萬民的;那女人的孩子被提到天主和他的寶座前。 5And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod: and her son was taken up to God, and to his throne.
6女人就逃到曠野去了,在那裡有天主已給她準備好的地方,叫她在那裡受供養一千二百六十天。 6And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared by God, that there they should feed her a thousand two hundred sixty days.
7以後,天上就發生了戰爭:彌額爾和他的天使一同與那龍交戰,那龍也和牠的使者一起應戰, 7And there was a great battle in heaven, Michael and his angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon fought and his angels:
8但牠們敵不住,在天上遂再也沒有牠們的地方了。 8And they prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9於是那大龍被摔了下來,牠就是那遠古的蛇,號稱魔鬼或撒殫的。那欺騙了全世界的,被摔到地上,牠的使者也同牠一起被摔了下來。 9And that great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, who seduceth the whole world; and he was cast unto the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
10那時我聽見天上有大聲音說:「如今我們的天主獲得了勝利、權能和國度,也顯示了他基督的權柄,因為那日夜在我們的天主前,控告我們弟兄的控告者,已被摔下去了。 10And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying: Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: because the accuser of our brethren is cast forth, who accused them before our God day and night.
11他們賴羔羊的血和他們作證的話,得勝了那條龍,因為他們情願犧牲自己的性命死了。 11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of the testimony, and they loved not their lives unto death.
12為此,高天和住在那裡的,你們歡樂罷!禍哉,大地和海洋!因為魔鬼懷著大怒下到你們那裡去了,因為他知道自己只有很短的時間了。」 12Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you that dwell therein. Woe to the earth, and to the sea, because the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time.
13那條龍一看見自己被摔到地上,就去追趕那生了男嬰的女人。 13And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman, who brought forth the man child:
14可是有大鷹的兩個翅膀給了那女人,為叫她飛入曠野,到自己的地方去,在那裡受供養一段時期、兩段時期和半段時期,遠離那蛇的面。 14And there were given to the woman two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the desert unto her place, where she is nourished for a time and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
15那蛇遂在女人後面,從自己的口中吐出一道像河的水,為使那女人被河水沖去; 15And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman, water as it were a river; that he might cause her to be carried away by the river.
16可是大地卻援助了那女人,大地裂開一個口,把那條龍從口中所吐出的河水吸了去。 16And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the river, which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
17那條龍便對那女人大發忿怒,遂去與她其餘的後裔,即那些遵行天主的誡命,且為耶穌作證的人交戰; 17And the dragon was angry against the woman: and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
18於是牠就站在海灘上。 18And he stood upon the sand of the sea.
