约伯传 Job
1厄里乌又接着说:1Moreover Eliu spoke these words:
2你说过:「我在天主前是正义的。」你想这话合理吗?2Doth thy thought seem right to thee, that thou shouldst say: I am more just than God?
3你还说过:「这与你何干?我若犯罪,我对你做了什么?」3For thou saidst: That which is right doth not please thee: or what will it profit thee if I sin?
4我今答复你,以及和你在一起的友人。4Therefore I will answer thy words, and thy friends with thee.
5请你仰视上天,且要静观,细看高于你的苍天。5Look up to heaven and see, and behold the sky, that it is higher than thee.
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 thou sin, what shalt thou hurt him? and if thy iniquities be multiplied, what shalt thou do against 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?7And if thou do justly, what shalt thou give him, or what shall he receive of thy 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。8Thy wickedness may hurt a man that is like thee: and thy justice may help the son of man.
9人因受暴虐过甚,必要哀号;因受强权的压迫,必要呼吁。9By reason of the multitude of oppressions they shall cry out: and shall wail for the violence of the arm of tyrants.
10但是没有人说:「那造成我们,使人夜间欢唱,10And he hath not said: Where is God, who made me, who hath given songs 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 teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and instructeth us more than the fowls 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。12There shall they cry, and he will not hear, because of the pride of evil men.
13他们空喊乱叫,天主决不俯听,全能者决不垂视。13God therefore will not hear in vain, and the Almighty will look into the causes of every one.
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!」14Yea when thou shalt say: He considereth not: be judged before him, and expect him.
15你还说过:「他没有发怒施罚,似乎不很理会罪过。」15For he doth not now bring on his fury, neither doth he revenge wickedness exceedingly.
16的确,约伯开口尽说空话;由于无知,说了许多妄言。16Therefore Job openeth his mouth in vain, and multiplieth words without knowledge.
