欧瑟亚 Hosea
1「来,我们回到上主那里去,因为他撕碎了我们,也必要治愈;他打伤了我们,也必要包扎。1Come, let us return to Yahweh. He who shattered us to pieces, will heal us as well; he has struck us down, but he will bind up our wounds.
2两天后他必使我们复生,第三天他必使我们兴起,生活在他的慈颜下。2Two days later he will bring us back to life; on the third day, he will raise us up, and we shall live in his presence.
3让我们认识上主,让我们努力认识上主!他定要像曙光一样出现,他要来到我们中间,有如秋雨,有如滋润田地的春雨。」3Let us strive to know Yahweh. His coming is as certain as the dawn;
4厄弗辣因,我可对你作什么?犹大,我可对你作什么?因为你们的仁爱有如早晨的浮云,有如易于消逝的朝露。4O Ephraim, what shall I do with you? O Judah, how shall I deal with you? This love of yours is like morning mist, like morning dew that quickly disappears.
5因此,我藉先知们砍伐了他们,以我口中的言语杀戮了他们;我的裁判出现有如光明:5c his judgment will burst forth like the light; he will come to us as showers come, like spring rain that waters the earth.
6因为我喜欢仁爱胜过祭献,喜欢人认识天主胜过全燔祭。6For it is love that I desire, not sacrifice; it is knowledge of God, not burnt offerings.
7但是他们在阿当就违犯了盟约,在那里已背叛了我。7At Adam they broke my covenant; there they were unfaithful to me.
8基肋阿得是座作恶者的城池,满了血迹。8Gilead is a city of evildoers, stained with footprints of blood.
9一队司祭就如埋伏的强盗,在往舍根的路上行凶;的确,他们行了可耻的事。9Like thieves in an ambush, so are the priests; they murder on the road to Shechem and commit adultery.
10在贝特耳我见了可恶的事:在那里厄弗辣因行了淫,以色列玷污了自己。10In Bethel I saw their disgraceful conduct; that is where Ephraim played the harlot and was defiled.
11当我转变我百姓的命运时,犹大啊!为你也注定了一个收割期。11(For you, too, Judah, I have a harvest stored when I bring back my captive people and heal Israel.)
