约伯传 Job
1约伯,请你且听我的话,侧耳静听我说的一切。1So now, O Job, hear my discourse, listen to everything I say.
2请看,我已开口,舌头已在口腔内发言。2My words are on the tip of my tongue,
3我的话是出于正直的心,我的唇舌要清楚说明真理。3words from an upright heart, words full of knowledge and sincerity.
4天主的神造了我,全能者的气息使我生活。4The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty keeps me alive.
5你如果能够,就回答我,请准备好,来对抗我。5Answer me if you can; draw up your arguments and take your stand.
6看,我与你在天主前都是一样,我也是用泥土造成的。6Like yourself, I too have been taken by God from the same clay.
7所以我的威吓不会使你恐怖,我的手也不会重压在你身上。7Thus no fear of me need alarm you, nor should my presence lie heavy on you.
8你所说的,我已耳闻,听到了你所说的话:8But I heard what you said, none of your words escaped my hearing:
9「我本纯洁无罪,清白无瑕。9"I am clean and without sin; I am innocent, guiltless.
10但天主却在我身上找错,视我为他的对头;10Yet God has found fault with me and considers me his enemy;
11他把我的脚缚在木桩上,窥察我的一切行动。」11he shackles my feet, keeps watch of all my paths."
12我答复你说:你这话说的不对,因为天主远超世人。12I tell you, you are wrong in this, for greater than man is God.
13他既不答复你说的一切话,你为何还同他争辩?13Why then do you complain that he will answer none of your words?
14原来天主用一种方法向人讲话,人若不理会,他再用另一种方法:14See God gives a warning but does not repeat it a second time.
15天主有时藉梦和夜间的异像,当人躺在床上沉睡的时候,15In a dream, in a night vision, when deep sleep falls on men, while they slumber in their beds,
16开启人的听觉,用异像惊吓他,16it is then he opens the ears of men and gives warning by terrifying them.
17使人脱离恶念,使人铲除骄傲,17So he turns man from wrongdoing and keeps him away from pride,
18阻拦他陷于阴府,救他的性命脱离沟壑。18God preserves his soul from the pit, his life from perishing by the sword.
19天主也有时惩罚人在床上受痛苦,使他的骨头不断的刺痛,19Man is also chastened on his bed by pain and constant distress upon his frame,
20以致他讨厌食物,他的心厌恶美味。20so that he finds food repulsive, even the choicest meal loathsome.
21他身上的肉已消逝不见,他枯瘦的骨头,已开始外露。21His flesh wastes away to naught; his bones, once unseen, now protrude.
22他的灵魂已临近墓穴,他的生命已接近死亡之所。22His soul draws near to the pit, and his life to the place of death.
23一千天使中,若有一个在他身傍,作他的代言人,提醒他应行的义务,23Yet if there is an angel by his side - a mediator, one in a thousand - to show him what is right for man, to give him justice once again,
24且怜悯那人,为他转求说:「求你拯救他,以免陷于阴府,因为我已找到了赎金。」24God will have mercy on him and say, "Deliver him from going down to the pit; I have found for him a ransom."
25他的肉身比少年人的肉身必更健美,他的青春岁月又恢复了。25Then his flesh will be renewed as a child's, restored as in the days of his youth.
26他祈求天主,必获得悦纳。他必欢然得见天主的仪容,天主也必恢复他的正义。26He will pray and find favor with God; he will see God's face and rejoice.
27那时,他将在人前重述所经历的事说:「我犯了罪,颠倒了是非,但他没有照我的罪罚我。27He will witness to men and say, "I sinned and perverted what was right, but I was not punished as I deserved.
28他救了我生命免入阴府,使我重见光明。」28He rescued my soul from going down into the pit, and gave me life to enjoy the light."
29这就是天主接二连三为人所做的事,29God does all this to man - twice, even thrice -
30挽救他脱离阴府,重见生命之光。30to turn him back from the pit, to lead him with the light of life.
31约伯啊!请留神倾听,静静地听我说话!31Pay attention, Job, listen to me; be silent, and I will continue to speak.
32你若有话说,请即回复我,你尽管说,因为我愿听你的理。32But if you have anything to say, say it then; speak up, for I wish to see you justified.
33若没有话,且听我说,静听我要教给你的智慧。33If not, then do listen; be silent as I teach you wisdom.
