艾斯德爾傳 Esther
1薛西斯王向陸地及各海島的居民徵稅。1King Ahasuerus levied tribute throughout the empire including the distant islands.
2他所行偉大英勇的事蹟,以及顯耀摩爾德開的詳細經過,都記載在瑪待和波斯君王的年鑑上。2All his acts of power and valor, together with a full account of the greatness of Mordecai who was raised by the king to high honor, are recorded in the chronicles of the kings of Media and Persia.
3猶太人摩爾德開,位僅次於薛西斯王,受猶太人的敬重,受他全體同胞的愛戴;他也努力為他的民族謀幸福,關心他的整個種族的安全。3The Jew Mordecai was second in rank to King Ahasuerus; he was great among the Jews and esteemed by many of his brothers as the harbinger of peace and welfare for all his people.
4摩爾德開說:「這一切都是天主一手完成的:4
5對這一切,我還記得我作的夢,果然都一一應驗了:5
6那變成大河的小泉,其上照耀著像太陽的曙光,和凶湧的水,──艾斯德爾就是這大河,君王娶了她,立為王后;6
7那兩條巨龍,便是我和哈曼;7
8萬民就是那些團結起來,要剷除猶太人名號的群眾;8
9我的民族,就是以色列,他們向天主哀號,而獲得了救援;上主救了他的百姓,上主使我們脫離了這一切禍患,天主在萬民中做了空前未有的奇蹟和偉業。9
10因此,天主制定了兩籤:一籤為天主的百姓,一籤為其他的民族。10
11這兩籤在天主為萬民所指定的時日,出現在天主前;11
12天主想起了他的民族,保護了他的家業。12
