若望默示錄 Revelation
1這些事以後,我看見另一位天使從天降下,掌有大權,下地被他的光榮照亮了。1And after these things, I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power: and the earth was enlightened with his glory.
2他用強大的聲音喊說:「偉大的巴比倫陷落了!陷落了!她變成了邪魔的住所,一切不潔之神的牢獄,一切不潔和可憎飛禽的巢穴,【以及一切不潔和可憎走獸的圈檻,】2And he cried out with a strong voice, saying: Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen; and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every unclean spirit, and the hold of every unclean and hateful bird:
3因為萬民都喝了她荒淫的烈酒,地上的諸王都同她行過邪淫,地上的商人,也因她的放蕩奢侈,而發了財。」3Because all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication; and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her; and the merchants of the earth have been made rich by the power of her delicacies.
4我又聽到了另一個聲音從天上說:「我的百姓,你們從她中間出來罷!免得你們分沾她的罪惡,也免得遭受她的災禍,4And I heard another voice from heaven, saying: Go out from her, my people; that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.
5因為她的罪惡已堆積得直達上天,使天主想起了她的不義。5For her sins have reached unto heaven, and the Lord hath remembered her iniquities.
6她怎樣虐待了人,你們也該怎樣虐待她,並按照她所行的,要加倍報復她;她用什麼杯斟給人,你們也要用什麼杯加斟給她;6Render to her as she also hath rendered to you; and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup wherein she hath mingled, mingle ye double unto her.
7她以前怎樣自誇自耀,奢侈享樂,你們也就怎樣加給她痛苦與哀傷:因為她心裡說過:「我坐著當皇后,而不是寡婦,必見不到哀傷。」7As much as she hath glorified herself, and lived in delicacies, so much torment and sorrow give ye to her; because she saith in her heart: I sit a queen, and am no widow; and sorrow I shall not see.
8為此,一日之內,她的災禍:瘟疫、哀傷和饑荒全都來到;她要被火焚燒,因為懲治她的上主天主,是強而有力的。」8Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine, and she shall be burnt with the fire; because God is strong, who shall judge her.
9當時那些曾同她行過邪淫,和享過快樂的地上諸王,看到焚燒她的煙,都要為她流淚哀悼。9And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication, and lived in delicacies with her, shall weep, and bewail themselves over her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning:
10他們因害怕她受的痛苦,就遠遠站著說:「可憐,可憐!你這座偉大的城,這座強盛的巴比倫城!在一小時之內,你就受到了懲罰。」10Standing afar off for fear of her torments, saying: Alas! alas! that great city Babylon, that mighty city: for in one hour is thy judgment come.
11地上的商人也為她流淚哀傷,因為再沒有人來買他們的貨物:11And the merchants of the earth shall weep, and mourn over her: for no man shall buy their merchandise any more.
12金銀、寶石、珍珠、細麻布、紫紅布、綢緞、朱紅布等貨物,以及各種香木、各種象牙器皿、各種貴重木器、銅、鐵、大理石的器皿,12Merchandise of gold and silver, and precious stones; and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner of vessels of ivory, and all manner of vessels of precious stone, and of brass, and of iron, and of marble,
13還有肉桂、香膏、香料、香液、乳香、酒、油、麵粉、麥子、牲口、羊群、駿馬、車輛、奴隸與人口。13And cinnamon, and odours, and ointment, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
14商人說:「你心中所愛吃的果品,都遠離了你;一切肥美和華麗的物品,都在你前消逝了,再也尋不見了。」14And the fruits of the desire of thy soul are departed from thee, and all fat and goodly things are perished from thee, and they shall find them no more at all.
15販賣這些貨物,而由她發財的人,因害怕她受的痛苦,遠遠站著,流淚哀傷,15The merchants of these things, who were made rich, shall stand afar off from her, for fear of her torments, weeping and mourning.
16說:「可憐,可憐!這偉大的城!這曾穿戴過細麻、紫紅和朱紅布衣裳,並以黃金、寶石和珍珠作裝飾的城,16And saying: Alas! alas! that great city, which was clothed with fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and was gilt with gold, and precious stones, and pearls.
17在一小時內,這樣多的財富,就蕩然無存了。」一切船長、一切到處航海的人、船員以及那些靠海謀生的人,都遠遠站著,17For in one hour are so great riches come to nought; and every shipmaster, and all that sail into the lake, and mariners, and as many as work in the sea, stood afar off.
18看見焚燒她的煙,就呼喊說:「那有一座城可與這座偉大的城相比呢!」18And cried, seeing the place of her burning, saying: What city is like to this great city?
19他們在自己的頭上撒灰,流淚哀傷,喊說:「可憐,可憐!這座偉大的城!凡在海中有船的人,都因她的富饒而發了大財。她怎麼在一時之內就蕩然無存了。」19And they cast dust upon their heads, and cried, weeping and mourning, saying: Alas! alas! that great city, wherein all were made rich, that had ships at sea, by reason of her prices: for in one hour she is made desolate.
20上天、聖徒、宗徒和先知們,你們因她的毀滅而歡騰罷!因為天主在她身上給你們伸了冤。20Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath judged your judgment on her.
21然後,一位強而有力的天使,舉起一塊大如磨盤的石頭,拋在海中說:「偉大的巴比倫城必要這樣猛力地被人拋棄,再也找不著她了!21And a mighty angel took up a stone, as it were a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying: With such violence as this shall Babylon, that great city, be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
22彈琴者、歌唱者、吹笛者和吹號者的聲音,在你中間再也聽不到了;各種工藝的匠人,在你中間再也找不到了;推磨的響聲,在你中間再也聽不到了;22And the voice of harpers, and of musicians, and of them that play on the pipe, and on the trumpet, shall no more be heard at all in thee; and no craftsman of any art whatsoever shall be found any more at all in thee; and the sound of the mill shall be heard no more at all in thee;
23燈臺上的光,在你中間再也不發亮了;新郎與新娘的聲音,在你中間再也聽不到了,因為你的商人都是地上的要人,又因為萬民都因你的邪術受了迷惑;23And the light of the lamp shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth, for all nations have been deceived by thy enchantments.
24且在此城中找到了諸先知、諸聖徒以及一切在地上被殺者的血。」24And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
