厄斯德拉下 Nehemiah
1哈加里雅的儿子乃赫米雅的言行录:在第二十年「基斯娄」月,我在稣撒禁城时,1The words of Nehemias the son of Helchias. And it came to pass in the month of Casleu, in the twentieth year, as I was in the castle of Susa,
2有我的一个兄弟哈纳尼,和几个人由犹大上来,我问及他们,关于那些由充军回国的犹太遗民,和耶路撒冷的情形;2That Hanani one of my brethren came, he and some men of Juda; and I asked them concerning the Jews, that remained and were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem.
3他们回答我说:「由充军回国的那些遗民,在省里遭大难,受污辱;耶路撒冷城垣坍塌,城门为火焚毁。」3And they said to me: They that have remained, and are left of the captivity there in the province, are in great affliction, and reproach: and the wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and the gates thereof are burnt with fire.
4我一听说这些事,就坐下涕哭,悲痛了几天,同时也在上天天主前,禁食祈祷,4And when I had heard these words, I sat down, and wept, and mourned for many days: and I fasted, and prayed before the face of the God of heaven.
5说:「唉!上主,天上的天主!伟大可畏的天主!那对爱你和守你诫命的人,履行信约,施行慈爱的,5And I said: I beseech thee, O Lord God of heaven, strong, great, and terrible, who keepest covenant and mercy with those that love thee, and keep thy commandments:
6求你侧耳,求你睁眼,俯听你仆人的祈祷即我,现今在你面前,日夜为你的仆人以色列子民所行的祈祷。我承认以色列子民对你所犯的罪过,因为我和我父家都犯了罪。6Let thy ears be attentive, and thy eyes open, to hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, night and day, for the children of Israel thy servants: and I confess the sins of the children of Israel, by which they have sinned against thee: I and my father's house have sinned.
7我们的确作恶得罪了你,没有遵守你吩咐你的仆人梅瑟,所立定的诫命、律例和典章。7We have been seduced by vanity, and have not kept thy commandments, and ceremonies and judgments, which thou hast commanded thy servant Moses.
8求你记忆你向你的仆人梅瑟所吩咐的话说:如果你们不忠实,我要将你们分散在万民之中;8Remember the word that thou commandedst to Moses thy servant, saying: If you shall transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations:
9但如果你们又回心归向我,遵守履行我的诫命,即便你们分散到天涯地角,我也要从那里,将你们聚集起来,领你们到我所选,为作我名居所的地方去。──9But if you return to me, and keep my commandments, and do them, though you should be led away to the uttermost parts of the world, I will gather you from thence, and bring you back to the place which I have chosen for my name to dwell there.
10他们都是你的仆人,你的人民,是你用强力和大能的手,所拯救出来的。10And these are thy servants, and thy people: whom thou hast redeemed by thy great strength, and by thy mighty hand.
11我主,求你侧耳俯听你仆人的祈祷,倾听这些喜爱敬畏你名的仆人的祈祷!求你今天使你的仆人顺利,使他在那人前获得宠遇。」我当时是君王的酒政。11I beseech thee, O Lord, let thy ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants who desire to fear thy name: and direct thy servant this day, and give him mercy before this man. For I was the king's cupbearer.
