雅歌 Song of Songs
1你這女中極美麗的啊!你的愛人往那裡去了?你的愛人轉向何處去了?好讓我們同你一起去尋找?1My beloved is gone down into his garden, to the bed of aromatical spices, to feed in the gardens, and to gather lilies.
2我的愛人到自己的花園,到香花畦去了,好在花園中牧羊,採摘百合花。2I to my beloved, and my beloved to me, who feedeth among the lilies.
3我屬於我的愛人,我的愛人屬於我,他在百合花間,牧放他的羊群。3Thou art beautiful, O my love, sweet and comely as Jerusalem: terrible as an army set in array.
4我的愛卿!你美麗有如提爾匝,可愛有如耶路撒冷,莊嚴有如齊整的軍旅。4Turn away thy eyes from me, for they have made me flee away. Thy hair is as a flock of goats, that appear from Galaad.
5轉過你的眼去,不要看我,因為你的眼使我迷亂;你的頭髮猶如由基肋阿得山下來的一群山羊。5Thy teeth as a flock of sheep, which come up from the washing, all with twins, and there is none barren among them.
6你的牙齒像一群浴後上來的母綿羊,都懷有雙胎,沒有不生育的。6Thy cheeks are as the bark of a pomegranate, beside what is hidden within thee.
7你隱在面紗後的兩頰,有如分裂兩半的石榴。7There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, and young maidens without number.
8皇后六十,嬪妃八十,少女無數;8One is my dove, my perfect one is but one, she is the only one of her mother, the chosen of her that bore her. The daughters saw her, and declared her most blessed: the queens and concubines, and they praised her.
9但是,我的鴿子,我的完人,只有一個;她是她母親的獨生女,她是生養她者的愛女;少女見了她,都稱她有福,皇后與嬪妃也都讚揚她。9Who is she that cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in array?
10「那上升如晨曦,美麗似月亮,光耀若太陽,莊嚴如齊整軍旅的,是誰?」10I went down into the garden of nuts, to see the fruits of the valleys, and to look if the vineyard had flourished, and the pomegranates budded.
11第四幕(5:2-6:10)又暗示充軍期後猶太人的心景。有些猶太人由於貪戀世物,仍留在巴比倫,不肯回歸許地;在回歸者當中,有熱心事奉天主,有的卻疏懶懈怠,對天主不忠(見第二幕寓意)。凈配──上主──終於來照顧自己新娘,給了她自己愛情的憑據(純正的沒藥);可是因新娘對新郎的熱情未夠熱烈,新郎便逃遁了,等待她悔悟了再去找他。新娘果真悔悟,並因愛成疾。新娘這番悔悟的熱情,也見於所謂「依撒意亞的默示錄」裡(依24-27,特別是26:8,9,16,19)。此「默示錄」可能著於公元前四八五年左右,大約與「雅歌」為同時代的作品;那年薛西斯毀滅了巴比倫。新娘在尋找新郎的時候,打她的「守衛」,也許指示在乃赫米雅省長以前,苛待民眾的波斯國所派的官員(厄下5:15)。以民對天主因痛悔而凈化了的愛,才是純潔的熱愛。這愛在5:10-16內表示無遺。新娘在這幾節內,好似將耶京的聖殿擬人化,以讚頌聖殿的美麗,來頌揚住在百姓間的上主;同樣在6:4-10節內,新郎(上主)好似將聖地擬人化,以描繪巴力斯坦的美景,來表示他對選民的愛。新郎所提出的那兩座舊京城──提爾匝和耶京,是為證明他的愛包括以色列十二支派(依11:10-15; 耶31:1-6 ; 則37:15-28)。9節內的「皇后與嬪妃」,按寓意來講,表示異邦民族(見詠45; 87 ; 申7:6,8; 32:8,9)。在此所描寫的天主對以民的鍾愛,就新約來說,更表現基督對聖教會的親愛(弗5:25-32)。但基督的這種超絻的愛,也要求教會常應準備好,等待基督的來臨(默3:20; 19:7; 谷13:33-37; 路12:36)。11I knew not: my soul troubled me for the chariots of Aminadab.
12我下到核桃園中,要欣賞谷中的新綠,看看葡萄樹是否發了芽,石榴樹是否開了花?12Return, return, O Sulamitess: return, return that we may behold thee.
13不知不覺,我的熱誠催促我登上了我民主上的御駕。13
