户籍纪 Numbers
1巴郎见祝福以色列,为上主所喜悦,就不再像前几次一样先去探求预示,只转面向旷野。 1But Balaam saw that Yahweh willingly blessed Israel. He did not seek out signs as he had done before, but turned towards the desert.
2巴郎一举目,看见了按支派扎营的以色列人;那时天主的神降在他身上, 2He looked up and saw Israel camping, tribe by tribe; and the spirit of God came upon him
3他遂吟诗说:「贝敖尔的儿子巴郎的神谕,明眼男子的神谕, 3and he uttered his song: "Word of Balaam, son of Beor, the seer, the one who hears the words of God,
4那听到天主的话,得见全能者的神视,在沉睡中开了神眼的神谕: 4and beholds the vision of the Almighty, in ecstasy, with eyes unveiled.
5雅各伯,你的帐幕,何其壮观!以色列,你的居所,何其美好! 5How goodly are your tents, Jacob, your encampments, Israel!
6如扩展的棕林,似河畔的花园,像上主栽种的沉香,似临水的香柏。 6Like valleys stretching far, like gardens beside a stream, like aloes planted by Yahweh, like cedars beside the waters.
7英雄由他的后裔而出,他将治理许多民族;他的君王超越阿加格,他的王国必受举扬。 7His buckets are overflowing and his seeds are always watered. His king becomes stronger than Agag, and his kingdom grows.
8领他出埃及的天主,为他有如野牛的角。他要吞灭那敌对他的人民,粉碎他们的骨骸,折断他们的箭矢。 8His God brought him out of Egypt and fights for him like the horns of a wild ox. He devours the carcasses of his enemies and crushes their bones in pieces.
9他蹲伏卧下有如雄狮,又似母狮;谁敢令他起立?祝福你的,必受祝福;咒骂你的,必受咒骂。」 9He lies like a lion, or like a lioness; who dares rouse him? Blessed is he who blesses you! And cursed is he who curses you!"
10巴拉克对巴郎大发忿怒,拍手向他说:「我请你来是为咒骂我的仇敌;看,你反祝福他们,且已三次。 10Balak's anger burned against Balaam; he beat his hands together and said, "I called you to curse my enemy and you have blessed him three times!
11现在你快回你故乡去!我原想丰富地酬谢你,但是,上主夺去了你的酬报。」 11So flee to your place now. I said I would greatly reward you but Yahweh has taken away your reward."
12巴郎回答巴拉克说:「我不是已对你遣来的使者声明过: 12Balaam said to Balak, "Did I not tell your messengers:
13即使巴拉克给我满屋金银,我也不能违犯上主的命令,任意去行善或作恶,而只能说上主所吩咐的吗? 13though Balak were to give me his house full of silver and gold, I could not do anything, good or bad, of my own accord beyond Yahweh's command? What Yahweh speaks, I speak.
14现在,我就要回到我民族那里去;来,让我告诉你这民族日后对你的民族所要做的事。」 14Now, before I return to my people, come that I may warn you what this people will do to your people in the days to come."
15于是他吟诗说:「贝敖尔的儿子巴郎的神谕,明眼男子的神谕, 15Then Balaam pronounced his oracle: "Word of Balaam, son of Beor, the seer,
16那听到天主的话,深知至高者的思虑,得见全能者的神视,在沉睡中开了神眼的神谕: 16the one who hears the words of God, who has knowledge from the Most High, and sees the vision of the Almighty, in ecstasy, with eyes unveiled.
17我看见他,却不是在现在;我望见他,却不是在近处:由雅各伯将出现一颗星,由以色列将兴起一权杖,击碎摩阿布的额角,粉碎舍特一切子民的脑盖。 17I see a figure, but not really. I behold him but not near. A star shall come forth from Jacob, he rises with a staff in his hand; he shatters the forehead of Moab and tears down all the sons of Sheth.
18厄东将成为他的属地,色依尔将成为他的辖境;以色列必行使威权。 18He conquers the land of Edom, and takes the cities of his enemies. Israel grows strong;
19由雅各伯将出生一位统治仇敌者,他要除灭依尔的遗民。」 19Jacob dominates."
20以后他望见阿玛肋克,遂吟诗说:「阿玛肋克原是众民之首,但他的结局是永远的灭亡。」 20Then Balaam looked to Amalek's country; he said, "Amalek, the first of the nations, will finally meet with destruction."
21后又望见刻尼人,遂吟诗说:「你的居所固然巩固,你的巢穴纵然建在磐石间; 21Then he looked to the Kainite's land and continued his oracle: Your dwelling place is enduring, your nest is set in the rock,
22但刻尼人仍要被毁灭,到何时亚述才将你掳去?」 22but you shall be destroyed; and finally Asshur shall take you captive."
23他又吟诗说:「呜呼!若天主履行此事,谁还能生存! 23Balaam continued his oracle and said: "Alas! Who will live when God does this?
24从基廷有船来,征服亚述,征服厄贝尔;他们也要永远灭亡。」 24Ships shall come from Kittim and shall conquer Asshur, but also Eber; they too shall be destroyed."
25然后巴郎起身回了本乡;巴拉克也回去了。 25Then Balaam rose and set out on his journey home while Balak also went on his way.
