耶肋米亞 Jeremiah
1在法郎尚未進攻迦薩以前,關於培肋舍特,上主有話傳給耶肋米亞先知說:1This is Yahweh's word that came to the prophet Jeremiah concerning the Philistines before Pharaoh attacked Gaza.
2上主這樣說:「看,有水從北方湧來,形成一條氾濫的河流,淹沒大地和地上的一切,首都和其中的居民;人們必要喊叫,大地所有的居民必要哀號。2Thus says Yahweh: "Look, waters rise from the north; soon they will become a raging flood overflowing the land and all it contains, the towns and their inhabitants. All dwellers in the land will wail
3一聽到他駿馬的鐵蹄聲,轔轔的戰車聲,和隆隆的飛輪聲,為父親的已束手無策,不能再顧及自己的兒子,3at the sound of the hooves of stamping steeds, the rattle of chariots, the rumbling of wheels. Fathers forget their children, as their hands fall limp.
4因為消滅一切培肋舍特人,和摧毀提洛及漆冬一切殘餘助手的日子來到了,上主要消滅培肋舍特人,加非托爾島的遺民。4The day of ruin has come upon the Philistines; Tyre and Sidon, the last of their allies, are cut off from them. Yahweh is set to destroy the Philistines, the remnant from the coasts of Caphtor.
5迦薩已一片荒涼,阿市刻隆已遭受滅亡;阿納克人的遺民,你們要割傷己身到何時呢?5Gaza is shaved bald, Ashkelon has perished. O remnant in the valley, how long will you gash yourselves?
6唉!上主的刀劍!到何時你纔休息?請你入鞘休息安歇罷!6O sword of Yahweh, how long before you rest? Return to your scabbard; stop and keep still!
7但上主既對它出了命,它怎能休息?阿市刻隆和海濱,是他給它指向的地方。7But how can it rest, when it is Yahweh who commanded it to attack Ashkelon and the seacoast?"
