约伯传 Job
1厄里乌又接着说:1Elihu continued and said:
2你说过:「我在天主前是正义的。」你想这话合理吗?2Do you presume you are right and innocent before God,
3你还说过:「这与你何干?我若犯罪,我对你做了什么?」3when you say, "What is it to you, am I doing you harm with my sins?"
4我今答复你,以及和你在一起的友人。4I will answer you and your friends as well.
5请你仰视上天,且要静观,细看高于你的苍天。5Look up to the sky and see, gaze at the clouds above.
6你若犯罪,为他有什么害处?你若作恶多端,又能加害他什么?6If you sin, what is that for God? Do your many offenses hurt him?
7如果你为人正义,为他又有何益?或者他由你手中获得什么?7If you are just, what do you give him? or what does he receive from your hand?
8你的恶行只能加害与你类似的人,你的正义也只能有益于世人。8It's a man like yourself that your sin touches, a son of man that your justice affects.
9人因受暴虐过甚,必要哀号;因受强权的压迫,必要呼吁。9Men cry out when greatly oppressed; they plead for relief under the tyrant's reign.
10但是没有人说:「那造成我们,使人夜间欢唱,10But no one says, "Where is God, my Maker, whose songs of jubilation are heard in the night,
11使我们比地上的走兽更聪明,使我们比天上的飞鸟更有智慧的天主在那里?」11who teaches us through the beasts of the earth, who makes us wise through the birds of the air?"
12他们虽呼喊,天主却不答应,这是因为恶人傲慢的原故。12This is why he does not answer when they cry out: because of man's arrogance.
13他们空喊乱叫,天主决不俯听,全能者决不垂视。13In vain! God does not listen, the Almighty takes no heed of it.
14何况你说过:「你看不见他;但你的案件已放在他面前,你应等待他!」14How much less then will he listen when you say you do not see him and wait, for your case is before him!
15你还说过:「他没有发怒施罚,似乎不很理会罪过。」15And you say that though he is angry he does not know how to punish for he has taken no notice of wickedness.
16的确,约伯开口尽说空话;由于无知,说了许多妄言。16So Job opens his mouth in empty talk, without knowledge he multiplies words.
