耶肋米亞 Jeremiah
1同年,即猶大王漆德克雅即位之初第四年五月,基貝紅人阿組爾的兒子哈納尼雅先知,在上主殿裡當著司祭和全體人民對我說:1Early in the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah, in the fifth month of the fourth year, the prophet Hananiah spoke to me. Hananiah son of Azzur from Gibeon proclaimed in Yahweh's House in the presence of the priests and the people,
2「萬軍的上主,以色列的天主這樣說:我已折斷了巴比倫王的軛。2"This is what Yahweh the God of hosts and the God of Israel says: I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.
3還有兩年,我就要取回巴比倫王拿步高,由這地方取去,帶往巴比倫的一切上主殿宇的器皿,再放在這地方,3Within two years I will bring back to this place all the objects that King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon took away from Yahweh's House and carried to Babylon.
4且領回猶大王約雅金的兒子耶苛尼雅及一切流徙至巴比倫的猶大俘虜,再來到這方──上主的斷語──因為我要折斷巴比倫王的軛。」4I will likewise bring back Jekoniah son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, and all who were taken from Judah and deported to Babylon. For I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon - word of Yahweh."
5耶肋米亞先知立即當著站在上主殿裡的司祭和全體人民,答覆了先知哈納尼雅。5Then Jeremiah replied to Hananiah in the presence of the priests and all the people,
6耶肋米亞先知說:「盼望是這樣!惟願上主這樣做!惟願上主實踐你預言的話,使上主殿宇的器皿和一切俘虜,從巴比倫再回到這地方來!6"So be it! May Yahweh fulfill the words you have spoken and bring back from Babylon to this place the objects taken from the House of Yahweh and all the exiles.
7不過請聽我當面願對你和全體人民要說的這一句話:7Yet hear now what I say in your hearing and the hearing of all the people.
8自古以來,在我和你以前的先知,對多少地區和強盛的王國,曾預言過戰爭,饑饉和瘟疫。8The prophets who came before you and me continually prophesied war, disaster and plague to many nations and great kingdoms.
9至於預言和平的先知,只在這先知的話實現以後,纔可認出這先知確是上主派遣的。9So the prophet who prophesies peace will not be recognized as truly sent by Yahweh, until his predictions are fulfilled."
10哈納尼雅先知便從耶肋米亞先知頸上取下木軛,折斷了,10Then Hananiah took the yoke from the neck of Jeremiah and broke it.
11然後對全體人民說:「上主這樣說:還有兩年,我就要這樣從一切民族的頸上,折斷巴比倫王拿步高的軛。」於是耶肋米亞先知只得自行離去。11Hananiah proclaimed in the presence of all the people, "Yahweh says this: In the same manner within two years will I break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar from the neck of all the nations." Then Jeremiah the prophet went on his way.
12哈納尼雅先知從耶肋米亞先知頸上取下木軛折斷以後,即有上主的話傳給耶肋米亞說:12Some time later, a word of Yahweh came to Jeremiah,
13「你去告訴哈納尼雅說:上主這樣說:你折斷了木軛,但我必做鐵軛來代替。13"Go and tell this to Hananiah: This is what Yahweh says: You have broken a wooden yoke but in its place you will get a yoke of iron.
14因為萬軍的上主,以色列的天主這樣說:我要將鐵軛放在這一切民族的頸上,使他們服事拿步高巴比倫王;他們該服事他,因為連田野的走獸我也交給了他。」14For this is what Yahweh the God of hosts and the God of Israel says: I am placing a yoke of iron on the neck of all the nations to make them serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and they will serve him. I will even give him control over the wild animals."
15耶肋米亞先知於是對哈納尼雅先知說:「哈納尼雅!請聽,上主並沒有派遣你,你竟使這人民相信謊言。15Then Jeremiah said to Hananiah, "Listen! Hananiah, you have not been sent by Yahweh and yet you have deceived these people, giving them false hope with your lies.
16為此,上主這樣說:看,我要把你趕出地面;今年你必要死,因為你說了背叛上主的話。」16That is why Yahweh says with regard to you: I am removing you from the face of the earth. You will die this very year because you have counseled rebellion against Yahweh."
17哈納尼雅先知就死在那年七月。17And in the seventh month of that year Hananiah died.
