约伯传 Job
1为此我心战栗,跳离它的原位。1This is why my heart pounds and leaps from its place.
2你们且细听天主的怒吼声,听那从他口中发出的巨响。2Listen to the thunder of his voice as it comes rumbling from his mouth.
3他令闪电炫耀天下,使之照射地极;3Under the heavens, he hurls his lightning, sending it to the ends of the earth.
4接着是雷声隆隆,那是天主威严之声;他的巨声一响,没有什么能够阻止。4Then comes the sound of God's roar- the majestic peal of his thunder. He does not check his thunderbolts until his voice has fully resounded.
5天主每以巨响施行奇事,做出我们莫测的事。5God thunders and his voice works marvels; he does great things we cannot perceive.
6他命令雪说:「落在大地上!」对暴雨说:「倾盆而降!」6He says to the snow, "Fall on the earth"; and to the rainshower, "Be a strong downpour."
7人人都停止活动,为叫人知道,这是他的作为。7So he keeps people under cover to let them acknowledge his work.
8野兽逃回洞穴,卧于自己的窝中。8Wild beasts go back into their lairs and remain quietly in their dens.
9暴风来自南极密宫,严寒出自极北之地。9The storm comes out from its chamber, and the cold from the driving winds.
10天主嘘气成冰,使大水凝成一片。10The breath of God forms ice, and the broad waters become frozen.
11他使云雾满涵湿气,使闪光穿过乌云。11With thunderbolts he loads the clouds, and through them scatters his lightning.
12雷电照他的指示旋转,全照他的命令实行于地面,12At his direction they do their rounds, upon the face of the habitable world.
13或为惩戒大地,或为施行恩惠。13He commands nature to punish men, to water his land or to show his mercy.
14约伯啊!你且侧耳细听这事,立著沈思天主的奇事!14Listen to this, O Job: pause and consider God's marvels.
15你岂能知道天主怎样发命,怎样使云中电光闪烁?15Do you know how he controls the clouds, how he makes his lightning flash?
16云怎样浮动,全知者的奇妙化工,你岂能明白?16Do you know how the clouds hang poised, all these wonders wrought by his perfect knowledge?
17当南风吹起,大地镇静时,你的衣服岂不是发暖?17You who swelter in your clothes when the earth lies still under the south wind,
18你岂能同他展开苍天,使它坚固如铸成的铜镜?18can you, like him, spread out the skies, hard as a mirror of molten bronze?
19我们昏愚,不能讲话,请教训我们怎样答复他。19Teach us then what we shall say to him; we cannot draw up our case because of darkness.
20我说话时,能给他讲述些什么新事?世人说话后,岂算是告诉他一项新闻?20Does it take an angel to bring this to God's attention?
21人现今看不见阳光照耀天空,除非等到风过天晴。21A while ago we could not see the light and the clouds darkened the sky, but the storm has just cast them out.
22金光来自北方,天主的左右有严威可怕的异光。22A blaze comes from the north, a dreadful glory around God.
23全能者是我们不可接近的,他的能力和正义,高超绝伦;他公义正道,决不欺压。23The Almighty is beyond our reach; exalted in power, great in judgment; the Master of justice oppresses no one.
24所以人应敬畏他;但那心中自以为聪慧的,他却不眷顾。24Therefore, people revere him; wise men are nothing in his sight.
