欧瑟亚 Hosea
1当以色列尚在童年时,我就爱了他;从在埃及时,我就召叫他为我的儿子。1As the morning passeth, so hath the king of Israel passed away. Because Israel was a child, and I loved him: and I called my son out of Egypt.
2可是我越呼唤他们,他们越远离我,去给巴耳献祭,向偶像进香。2As they called them, they went away from before their face: they offered victims to Baalim, and sacrificed to idols.
3是我教了厄弗辣因迈步,双臂抱着他们,但他们却不理会是我照顾了他们。3And I was like a foster father to Ephraim, I carried them in my arms: and they knew not that I healed them.
4是我用仁慈的绳索,爱情的带子牵着他们,我对他们有如高举婴儿到自己面颊的慈亲,俯身喂养他们。4I will draw them with the cords of Adam, with the bands of love: and I will be to them as one that taketh off the yoke on their jaws: and I put his meat to him that he might eat.
5他们却要返回埃及地,要亚述作他们的君王,因为他们拒绝归依我。5He shall not return into the land of Egypt, but the Assyrian shall be his king: because they would not be converted.
6刀剑必要在他们的城中横行,杀绝他们的子女,在他们的堡垒中吞噬他们。6The sword hath begun in his cities, and it shall consume his chosen men, and shall devour their heads.
7我的百姓因着自己的叛逆使我厌烦了;为此上主给他们指定应负的重轭,因为他已不再怜惜他们。7And my people shall long for my return: but a yoke shall be put upon them together, which shall not be taken off.
8厄弗辣因!我怎能舍弃你?以色列!我怎能抛掉你?我怎能使你如同阿德玛,待你如同责波殷?我的心已转变,我的五内已感动;8How shall I deal with thee, O Ephraim, shall I protect thee, O Israel? how shall I make thee as Adama, shall I set thee as Seboim? my heart is turned within me, my repentance is stirred up.
9我不再按我的盛怒行事,不再毁灭厄弗辣因,因为我是天主而不是人,是在你中间的圣者,而不是伏于城门的仇敌。9I will not execute the fierceness of my wrath: I will not return to destroy Ephraim: because I am God, and not man: the holy one in the midst of thee, and I will not enter into the city.
10的确,他们必要追随上主,他要像狮子吼叫;他一吼叫,他的子女便要从西方急速归来,10They shall walk after the Lord, he shall roar as a lion: because he shall roar, and the children of the sea shall fear.
11犹如飞鸟由埃及急速飞来,犹如鸽子从亚述飞来;我要使他们安居在他们的家中──上主的断语。11And they shall fly away like a bird out of Egypt, and like a dove out of the land of the Assyrians: and I will place them in their own houses, saith the Lord.
12 12Ephraim hath compassed me about with denials, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Juda went down as a witness with God, and is faithful with the saints.
