欧瑟亚 Hosea
1乌齐雅、纳堂、【阿哈次和希则克雅】为犹大王,约阿士的儿子雅洛贝罕为以色列王时,上主有话传给贝厄黎的儿子欧瑟亚。1The word of Yahweh was addressed to Hosea son of Beeri, during the reign of Ussiah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah in Judah, and of Jeroboam son of Joash, in Israel.
2上主开始藉欧瑟亚发言时,上主对欧瑟亚说:「你去娶一个娼妇为妻,让她生淫乱的子女,因为此地淫乱放荡,背离了上主。」2When Yahweh began to speak through Hosea, the Lord said to him, "Go, take for your wife a woman involved in sacred prostitution and have children born of prostitution, for the land is wholeheartedly lapsing into prostitution and turning away from Yahweh."
3欧瑟亚便去娶了狄布拉因的女儿哥默尔为妻;她怀孕,给他生了一个儿子。3So he married Gomer, daughter of Diblaim. And she was with child and bore a son.
4上主对欧瑟亚说:「你要给他起名叫依次勒耳,因为过不久,我要向耶胡家追讨依次勒耳的血债,要消灭以色列家的王室。4Yahweh told him, "Name him Jezreel, for I will soon punish the family of Jehu for the massacre at Jezreel. I will put an end to the kingdom of Israel.
5到那一天,我必要在依次勒耳山谷折断以色列的弓。」5The days are coming when Israel will be defeated in the Valley of Jezreel."
6哥默尔再怀孕,生了一个女儿,上主对欧瑟亚说:「你给她起名叫罗鲁阿玛(不蒙爱怜者),因为我不再爱怜以色列家,以致我不再宽宥他们。6Gomer was again with child and gave birth to a daughter. Yahweh said to Hosea, "Name her Unloved, for I will have no more love for the nation of Israel, nor will I forgive them."
7但我要爱怜犹大家族,要拯救他们,因为我上主是他们的天主;但是我不以弓弩、刀剑、战争、战马和骑士拯救他们。7After weaning Unloved, Gomer was with child again and had another son.
8罗鲁阿玛断奶之后,哥默尔又怀孕,生了一个儿子。8Yahweh said, "Name him Not-my-people, for you are not my people, nor AM - I for you."
