耶肋米亚 Jeremiah
1同年,即犹大王漆德克雅即位之初第四年五月,基贝红人阿组尔的儿子哈纳尼雅先知,在上主殿里当着司祭和全体人民对我说:1Early in the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah, in the fifth month of the fourth year, the prophet Hananiah spoke to me. Hananiah son of Azzur from Gibeon proclaimed in Yahweh's House in the presence of the priests and the people,
2「万军的上主,以色列的天主这样说:我已折断了巴比伦王的轭。2"This is what Yahweh the God of hosts and the God of Israel says: I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.
3还有两年,我就要取回巴比伦王拿步高,由这地方取去,带往巴比伦的一切上主殿宇的器皿,再放在这地方,3Within two years I will bring back to this place all the objects that King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon took away from Yahweh's House and carried to Babylon.
4且领回犹大王约雅金的儿子耶苛尼雅及一切流徙至巴比伦的犹大俘虏,再来到这方──上主的断语──因为我要折断巴比伦王的轭。」4I will likewise bring back Jekoniah son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, and all who were taken from Judah and deported to Babylon. For I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon - word of Yahweh."
5耶肋米亚先知立即当着站在上主殿里的司祭和全体人民,答复了先知哈纳尼雅。5Then Jeremiah replied to Hananiah in the presence of the priests and all the people,
6耶肋米亚先知说:「盼望是这样!惟愿上主这样做!惟愿上主实践你预言的话,使上主殿宇的器皿和一切俘虏,从巴比伦再回到这地方来!6"So be it! May Yahweh fulfill the words you have spoken and bring back from Babylon to this place the objects taken from the House of Yahweh and all the exiles.
7不过请听我当面愿对你和全体人民要说的这一句话:7Yet hear now what I say in your hearing and the hearing of all the people.
8自古以来,在我和你以前的先知,对多少地区和强盛的王国,曾预言过战争,饥馑和瘟疫。8The prophets who came before you and me continually prophesied war, disaster and plague to many nations and great kingdoms.
9至于预言和平的先知,只在这先知的话实现以后,才可认出这先知确是上主派遣的。9So the prophet who prophesies peace will not be recognized as truly sent by Yahweh, until his predictions are fulfilled."
10哈纳尼雅先知便从耶肋米亚先知颈上取下木轭,折断了,10Then Hananiah took the yoke from the neck of Jeremiah and broke it.
11然后对全体人民说:「上主这样说:还有两年,我就要这样从一切民族的颈上,折断巴比伦王拿步高的轭。」于是耶肋米亚先知只得自行离去。11Hananiah proclaimed in the presence of all the people, "Yahweh says this: In the same manner within two years will I break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar from the neck of all the nations." Then Jeremiah the prophet went on his way.
12哈纳尼雅先知从耶肋米亚先知颈上取下木轭折断以后,即有上主的话传给耶肋米亚说:12Some time later, a word of Yahweh came to Jeremiah,
13「你去告诉哈纳尼雅说:上主这样说:你折断了木轭,但我必做铁轭来代替。13"Go and tell this to Hananiah: This is what Yahweh says: You have broken a wooden yoke but in its place you will get a yoke of iron.
14因为万军的上主,以色列的天主这样说:我要将铁轭放在这一切民族的颈上,使他们服事拿步高巴比伦王;他们该服事他,因为连田野的走兽我也交给了他。」14For this is what Yahweh the God of hosts and the God of Israel says: I am placing a yoke of iron on the neck of all the nations to make them serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and they will serve him. I will even give him control over the wild animals."
15耶肋米亚先知于是对哈纳尼雅先知说:「哈纳尼雅!请听,上主并没有派遣你,你竟使这人民相信谎言。15Then Jeremiah said to Hananiah, "Listen! Hananiah, you have not been sent by Yahweh and yet you have deceived these people, giving them false hope with your lies.
16为此,上主这样说:看,我要把你赶出地面;今年你必要死,因为你说了背叛上主的话。」16That is why Yahweh says with regard to you: I am removing you from the face of the earth. You will die this very year because you have counseled rebellion against Yahweh."
17哈纳尼雅先知就死在那年七月。17And in the seventh month of that year Hananiah died.
