户籍纪 Numbers
1巴郎见祝福以色列,为上主所喜悦,就不再像前几次一样先去探求预示,只转面向旷野。1But Balaam saw that Yahweh willingly blessed Israel. He did not seek out signs as he had done before, but turned towards the desert.
2巴郎一举目,看见了按支派扎营的以色列人;那时天主的神降在他身上,2He looked up and saw Israel camping, tribe by tribe; and the spirit of God came upon him
3他遂吟诗说:「贝敖尔的儿子巴郎的神谕,明眼男子的神谕,3and he uttered his song: "Word of Balaam, son of Beor, the seer, the one who hears the words of God,
4那听到天主的话,得见全能者的神视,在沉睡中开了神眼的神谕:4and beholds the vision of the Almighty, in ecstasy, with eyes unveiled.
5雅各伯,你的帐幕,何其壮观!以色列,你的居所,何其美好!5How goodly are your tents, Jacob, your encampments, Israel!
6如扩展的棕林,似河畔的花园,像上主裁种的沉香,似临水的香柏。6Like valleys stretching far, like gardens beside a stream, like aloes planted by Yahweh, like cedars beside the waters.
7英雄由他的后裔而出,他将治理许多民族;他的君王超越阿加格,他的王国必受举扬。7His buckets are overflowing and his seeds are always watered. His king becomes stronger than Agag, and his kingdom grows.
8领他出埃及的天主,为他有如野牛的角。他要吞灭那敌对他的人民,粉碎他们的骨骸,折断他们的箭矢。8His God brought him out of Egypt and fights for him like the horns of a wild ox. He devours the carcasses of his enemies and crushes their bones in pieces.
9他蹲伏卧下有如雄狮,又似母狮;谁敢令他起立?祝福你的,必受祝福;咒骂你的,必受咒骂。」9He lies like a lion, or like a lioness; who dares rouse him? Blessed is he who blesses you! And cursed is he who curses you!"
10巴拉克对巴郎大发忿怒,拍手向他说:「我请你来是为咒骂我的仇敌;看,你反祝福他们,且已三次。10Balak's anger burned against Balaam; he beat his hands together and said, "I called you to curse my enemy and you have blessed him three times!
11现在你快回你故乡去!我原想丰富地酬谢你,但是,上主夺去了你的酬报。」11So flee to your place now. I said I would greatly reward you but Yahweh has taken away your reward."
12巴郎回答巴拉克说:「我不是已对你遣来的使者声明过:12Balaam said to Balak, "Did I not tell your messengers:
13即使巴拉克给我满屋金银,我也不能违犯上主的命令,任意去行善或作恶,而只能说上主所吩咐的吗?13though Balak were to give me his house full of silver and gold, I could not do anything, good or bad, of my own accord beyond Yahweh's command? What Yahweh speaks, I speak.
14现在,我就要回到我民族那里去;来,让我告诉你这民族日后对你的民族所要做的事。」14Now, before I return to my people, come that I may warn you what this people will do to your people in the days to come."
15于是他吟诗说:「贝敖尔的儿子巴郎的神谕,明眼男子的神谕,15Then Balaam pronounced his oracle: "Word of Balaam, son of Beor, the seer,
16那听到天主的话,深知至高者的思虑,得见全能者的神视,在沉睡中开了神眼的神谕:16the one who hears the words of God, who has knowledge from the Most High, and sees the vision of the Almighty, in ecstasy, with eyes unveiled.
17我看见他,却不是在现在;我望见他,却不是在近处:由雅各伯将出现一颗星,由以色列将兴起一权杖,击碎摩阿布的额角,粉碎舍特一切子民的脑盖。17I see a figure, but not really. I behold him but not near. A star shall come forth from Jacob, he rises with a staff in his hand; he shatters the forehead of Moab and tears down all the sons of Sheth.
18厄东将成为他的属地,色依尔将成为他的辖境;以色列必行使威权。18He conquers the land of Edom, and takes the cities of his enemies. Israel grows strong;
19由雅各伯将出生一位统治仇敌者,他要除灭依尔的遗民。」19Jacob dominates."
20以后他望见阿玛肋克,遂吟诗说:「阿玛肋克原是众民之首,但他的结局是永远的灭亡。」20Then Balaam looked to Amalek's country; he said, "Amalek, the first of the nations, will finally meet with destruction."
21后又望见刻尼人,遂吟诗说:「你的居所固然巩固,你的巢穴纵然建在磐石间;21Then he looked to the Kainite's land and continued his oracle: Your dwelling place is enduring, your nest is set in the rock,
22但刻尼人仍要被毁灭,到何时亚述才将你掳去?」22but you shall be destroyed; and finally Asshur shall take you captive."
23他又吟诗说:「呜呼!若天主履行此事,谁还能生存!23Balaam continued his oracle and said: "Alas! Who will live when God does this?
24从基廷有船来,征服亚述,征服厄贝尔;他们也要永远灭亡。」24Ships shall come from Kittim and shall conquer Asshur, but also Eber; they too shall be destroyed."
25然后巴郎起身回了本乡;巴拉克也回去了。25Then Balaam rose and set out on his journey home while Balak also went on his way.
