約伯傳 Job
1納阿瑪人左法爾發言說:1Zophar the Naamithite spoke:
2難道喋喋不休,就不需要答覆?難道多嘴多舌的人,就證明有理?2Must these words go unanswered? Must you be right for talking so much?
3你的空談,豈能叫人緘默?你如此謾罵,難道無人使你羞愧?3Will your prattle keep us silent? Will no one answer your mocking?
4你說過:「我的品行是純潔的,我在你眼中是清白的。」4You say to God that your way is right, that you are clean in his sight.
5但願天主講話,開口答覆你!5How I wish that God would speak and open his lips against you,
6將智慧的秘密,─ 即那難以理解的事 ─ 啟示給你,那麼你便知道,天主還忽略了你的一些罪過。6to show you the secrets of wisdom which put intelligence to shame, then you would know that God is recalling your sins.
7你豈能探究天主的奧秘,或洞悉全能者的完美?7Can you fathom the mysteries of God, probe the extent of his perfection?
8完美高於諸天,你能作什麼?深於陰府,你能知道什麼?8It is higher than heaven - what can you do? Deeper than the world of death - what can you know?
9其量長過大地,闊於海洋。9Its measure is wider than the earth, broader than the sea.
10天主若經過,誰能扣留他?他若下了逮捕令,誰能阻擋他?10Who can stop him when he passes, when he imprisons and calls to judgment?
11他洞悉人的虛偽,明察人的罪行,且無不注意。11He sees evil; he recognizes deceit. Will he not then take note of it?
12如此,愚蠢者纔可獲得智慧,野性驢駒纔能變為馴良。12So stupid men learn to be wise as wild donkeys become tame.
13你若居心正直,向他伸開你的雙手;13If you set your heart aright and stretch out your hands to him,
14你若將手中的罪惡除掉,不容不義留在你帳幕內;14if you wash your hand of sin and allow no evil in your tent,
15那麼你定能仰首無愧,一定站立穩定,一無所懼;15you will then raise your face in honor; having no fear, you will feel secure.
16你必能忘卻痛苦,縱然想起,也必似水流去;16You will forget your suffering and recall it only as waters gone by.
17你的壽命如日中之光華,縱有陰暗,仍如晨曦。17Your life will be brighter than noonday and its darkness like the morning.
18因有希望,你纔感覺安全;因有保護,你纔坦然躺臥;18You will be comforted, for there is hope; you will be protected when you sleep.
19你躺臥,無人敢來擾亂你,反而有多人來奉承你。19You will lie down with no one to fear; many will come to court your favor.
20然而惡人的眼必要昏花,他們安身之所必全毀壞,他們的希望只在吐出最後的一口氣。20But the eyes of the wicked will fail; they will lose all way of escape, their one hope - that death will come.
