德訓篇 Sirach
1萬有的主宰天主!求你憐憫我們,轉面回顧,賜我們得見你仁慈的光輝。 1Have mercy on us, Master, God of all, and look on us; make every nation stand in fear of you.
2求你賜那不尋找你的萬民都敬畏你,讓他們知道,除你以外別無天主,為叫他們傳揚你偉大的作為。 2Take action against the pagan nations and let them see your power.
3求你舉起你的手來,攻擊外邦的人民,使他們見到你的威能。 3You have shown them your holiness through what happened to us, so now let us see your great power in acting among them.
4你在他們面前,對我們怎樣顯示了你是聖者,願你在我們面前,也對他們怎樣顯示偉大, 4Let them acknowledge, as we have acknowledged, that there is no God but you, Lord.
5好叫他們認識你,如同我們認識了你一樣;除你以外,沒有天主,上主啊! 5Give new signs, do fresh wonders, stretch out your hand and be glorified in your strength.
6求你重顯神蹟,重行奇事, 6Kindle your fury and rouse your anger, destroy your opponents, crush your enemy.
7顯耀你的力量和你的大能。 7Hasten the day, remember your covenant so that we may speak of your great deeds.
8求你大發雷霆,發洩義怒, 8Let the survivors be consumed in fiery wrath, let those who oppress send to perdition.
9剷除敵對,消滅仇人。 9Crush the heads of hostile rulers - those who say they alone count.
10求你使拯救的時日急速來臨,記念你的誓約,好叫萬邦稱揚你的偉業。 10Gather all the tribes of Jacob, give them back their inheritance as in the beginning.
11願那生還的人,也被怒火燒盡;願那欺壓你民族的人,都遭毀滅。 11Have pity, Lord, on the people known by your Name, on Israel whom you called your firstborn.
12求你打碎仇人首領的頭顱,因為他們說:我們以外,沒有別人。 12Show compassion to the holy city, to Jerusalem where you rest.
13求你聚集雅各伯的眾支派,使他們明白,除你以外,沒有天主;使他們傳揚你偉大的作為;以他們作產業,如同起初一樣。 13Fill Zion with the fame of your wonders, and your people with your glory.
14上主啊!求你憐憫那因你得名的民族,就是你視為長子的以色列民族。 14Confirm the promises made to your people long ago and fulfill the promises made in your name.
15求你憐憫你的聖城耶路撒冷,你安居的住所。 15Reward those who wait for you and fulfill the words of your prophets.
16求你使熙雍布滿你的威嚴,使聖殿彌漫你的光榮。 16Hear the prayer of your servants, Lord; hear your priests giving Aaron's blessing to your people.
17求你為你首要的功業作證,履行古先知們因你的名所說的預言。 17So that all on earth may acknowledge that you are Lord and everlasting God.
18求你賞報期待你的人民,好使你的先知們被人認為忠實。上主啊!求你俯聽你僕人們的祈禱, 18The stomach takes in all kinds of food but one food is better than another.
19依照亞郎給與你百姓的祝福,指導我們走上正義的道路,使世上所有的人,都知道你是天主,萬世萬代的天主。 19Just as the tongue can distinguish the flavor of game, so does the alert mind detect lies.
20胃能容納任何食物,但有的食物卻比其他食物更好。 20A crooked heart causes sorrow, but an experienced person knows how to get even with him.
21味覺能分辨野味;同樣,明達人的心能辨別虛詐的言語。 21A woman will accept any husband but some daughters are better than others.
22歪曲的心使人悲傷,但有經驗的人,卻能防備他。 22Woman's beauty rejoices people and is beyond all that could be wished for.
23一個女子可嫁給任何男子,但有的女子卻比其他女子更好。 23If she is kindly-spoken and gentle he is the most fortunate of men.
24婦女的美麗,能使她的丈夫容貌煥發,這也是男人的最大願望。 24When a man marries he acquires a fortune, someone who understands him and who will help and support him.
25若婦女善於措辭規勸,說話仁慈溫柔,她的丈夫就決不尋常。 25When there is no hedge the property will be destroyed; and when a man has no wife he is a fretful wanderer.
26獲得賢能妻子的,就是獲得了最好的產業;即一個與自己相稱的助手,和扶持自己的柱石。 26Who would trust a clever robber flitting from town to town?
27那裡沒有垣墻,財產必被搶掠;那裡沒有妻子,人就要漂泊嗟嘆。 27And who would trust a man without a nest, who lodges wherever nightfall finds him?
28誰能相信一個武裝起來,從一城竄入另一城的強盜呢﹖同樣,誰也不相信一個沒有家室,一到晚上便到處尋找居所的人。 28
