约伯传 Job
1全能者为何不划定一个期限呢?忠于他的人为何看不到他的日子?1Why is what happens hidden from God? Why do his faithful never see his justice?
2恶人挪移地界,抢去羊群自去牧放;2The wicked remove landmarks and steal both flocks and shepherds.
3赶走孤儿的驴,拿去寡妇的牛作抵押;3They seize the orphan's ass and for a pledge take the widow's ox.
4迫使穷人离开正路,使境内的贫民隐藏不露。4The needy stay far from the road, the poor go into hiding.
5看啊!他们像旷野的野驴,出来寻觅食物;他们纵使到晚操作,却找不到养子女的食物。5Like wild asses in the wasteland, they look for food; the poor toil in the night, there is no food for their children!
6夜间遂到田间去收割,到恶人的葡萄园中去摘取。6They gather fodder in the fields, work in the vineyards of the wicked.
7赤身过宿,无衣蔽体;严寒之时,没有舖盖。7Destitute, they lie down naked, shivering in the freezing cold.
8在山中为暴雨淋透,因无处避身,而卧于磐石下。8Drenched with mountain rains, they hug the rocks for lack of shelter.
9另有些人将孤儿从母怀中抢去,剥去穷人的衣服作抵押,9The fatherless child is snatched from the breast, the infant of the poor seized for a debt.
10致使他们无衣赤身行走,枵腹担荷麦捆;10Without clothes, they go naked, starving as they carry the sheaves.
11在石槽中搾油、践踏,反受口渴之苦。11Between the millstones they crush olives; they tread the winepress but suffer thirst.
12临死者的呻吟,声闻城外;负伤者呼求救援,天主却不理会他们的哀求。12In the city the dying groan, and the wounded cry out for help but God pays no attention.
13另有些人反抗光明,不认识光明的道路,更不走光明的途径。13Many rebel against the light, they do not know its way or stay in its path.
14凶手黎明即起,去杀害困苦和贫穷的人,夜间去作盗贼。14When dawn breaks, the murderer rises to kill the poor and the helpless.
15奸夫的眼盼望黄昏,他心里说:「没有眼可看见我!」就将自己的脸遮蔽起来。15The adulterer waits for dusk, thinking that no eye watches him. At night the thief walks about and puts a mask over his face,
16窃贼夜间挖穿屋墙,白日将自己关起,不愿看见光明,16ready to break into the houses that he chose during the day.
17因为早晨对这班人有如死影,他们已熟悉了黑暗的恐怖。17Morning is their darkest hour the time for them to fear.
18是否如此?谁能证明我说谎,谁能以我的话为荒诞?18The wicked are foam on the face of the waters; their portion of the land is cursed, and no one goes to their vineyards.
19 19As drought and heat snap up the thawed snow, so Sheol swallows up the sinner,
20 20and the womb which formed him, forgets him. Evil men are no longer remembered, like a fallen tree they are broken.
21 21They preyed on the barren, childless woman, and showed no kindness to the widow.
22 22But the Powerful stands against them and drags away the mighty.
23 23He may let them feel secure, but his eyes are upon their ways.
24 24They are momentarily exalted, and then gone; they wither and fade like a weed. They are cut off like heads of grain.
25 25If this is not so, who can prove me wrong and reduce my words to nothing?
