哈盖 Haggai
1达理阿王二年六月初一,有上主的话藉哈盖先知传给沙耳提耳的儿子犹大省长则鲁巴贝耳,和约匝达克的儿子大司祭耶叔亚说:1In the second year of the reign of Darius, on the first day of the sixth month, a word of Yahweh was directed to the prophet Haggai for the benefit of Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest.
2万军的上主这样说:这百姓说:「建筑上主殿宇的时候还没有到!」2"So says Yahweh of hosts: This people claim that the time to rebuild the House of Yahweh has not yet come.
3于是有上主的话藉哈盖先知说:3Well now, hear what I have to say through the prophet Haggai:
4「当这座殿宇还是一堆废墟时,难道为你们就到了住在有天花板的房屋的时候?4Is this the time for you to live in your well-built houses while this House is a heap of ruins?
5如今万军的上主这样说:你们应细心考虑一下你们的行径!5Think about your ways:
6你们播种的多,却收割的少;你们吃,却总吃不饱;你们喝,却总喝不够;你们穿衣,却总不觉温暖;赚了工资,无异是将工资投进了破囊。6you have sown much but harvested little, you eat and drink but are not satisfied, you clothe yourselves but still feel cold, and the laborer puts the money he earned in a tattered purse.
7万军的上主这样说:你们应细心考虑一下你们的行径!7Now think about what you must do:
8你们应上山去,搬运木材,建造殿宇!我必因此喜悦,并发显光荣──上主说。8go to the mountain and look for wood to rebuild the House. This will make me happy and I will feel deeply honored, says Yahweh.
9你们期望丰收,看,反而歉收;你们运到家里,我反把它吹散;这是为了什么?──万军上主的断语──是为了我的殿宇尚在荒废,而你们竟各自赶造自己的房屋。9You expected much but it turned out to be very little. I blew away what you had piled up. Why? Because my House lies in ruins while each of you goes running home.
10为此,上天对你们停降雨露,大地也停止了出产,10Therefore the heavens have withheld rain, and the earth has not produced anything.
11因为我向大地、群山、五谷、新酒、新油、田地的出产、人畜和手中的一切工作招来了旱灾。」11I sent drought upon the valley and the hills, upon the wheat and the vines, the oil and whatever the soil produces, upon people and animals, and upon any work of your hands."
12于是沙耳提耳的儿子则鲁巴贝耳,约匝达克的儿子大司祭耶叔亚,以及全体遗民都听从了上主,他们天主的声音,也听从了上主,他们的天主给他们派遣来的哈盖先知的话;因此百姓在上主面前都起了敬畏的心。12Now, when Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest,
13上主的使者哈盖就以上主使者的名义向人民说:我与你们同在──上主的断语。13and all the people heard these words of the prophet Haggai whom Yahweh had sent to speak to them, they paid attention to what Yahweh had told them and the people were filled with respect for God.
14于是上主振兴起了沙耳提耳的儿子犹大省长则鲁巴贝耳的精神,以及约匝达克的儿子大司祭耶叔亚的精神,和全体遗民的精神,他们便都前来兴工建造万军的上主,他们的天主的圣殿。14Then Haggai, the messenger of Yahweh, passed on to the people this word of Yahweh, "I am with you." Then Yahweh moved the heart of Zerubbabel, Joshua and all the people, and they began rebuilding the House of Yahweh of hosts, their God.
15时在达理阿王二年六月二十四日。15It was the twenty-fourth day of the sixth month.
