箴言 Proverbs
1信誉比多财可取,敬仰比金银可贵。 1A good name is better than great wealth; fame is preferable to silver or gold.
2富人与穷人彼此相遇,二者皆为上主所造。 2Rich and poor have something in common, Yahweh has made them all.
3精明人遇见灾祸,即行隐避;无知者反向前走,自招损害。 3The discreet man foresees disgrace and hides, the ignorant keep going at their own expense.
4谦卑的赏报,是敬畏上主,是享有财富、尊荣和生命。 4The reward of humility is fear of Yahweh, wealth, honor and life.
5邪恶者的路上,满布荆棘罗网;洁身自爱的人,必能远而避之。 5The path of the wicked is paved with thorns and traps, he who loves his life will keep his distance.
6你教导孩童应行的道路,待他老年时也不会离弃。 6Teach a child the way he should go, he will not stray from it while he lives.
7富人宰割穷人,债主奴役债户。 7The rich man lords it over the poor, the borrower is the moneylender's slave.
8播种邪恶的,必收获灾祸;他辛苦工作,必全属徒劳。 8Whoever sows injustice reaps disaster; the power of the wicked will be broken.
9目光慈祥的,必蒙受祝福,因他将食粮,施舍给穷人。 9The warmhearted man will be blessed since he shares his bread with the poor.
10赶走了狂人,就除了争执;争讼与侮辱,亦相继止息。 10Throw out the mocker and the dispute will cease, fighting and insults will end.
11纯洁的心灵,是上主所爱;优雅的唇舌,是君王所悦。 11He who loves purity of heart and speaks sensibly will find a friend in the king.
12上主的眼目,常卫护知识;败类的言论,必加以毁灭。 12Yahweh's look protects the wise man and discredits the words of the liar.
13只有懒人说:「外面有狮子,在街市之中,我会被吞噬」。 13The lazy man says, "There is a lion outside, he will kill me in the street."
14淫妇们的口,实是个深坑;上主恼怒的,必坠入其中。 14The adulterous woman's mouth is a deep pit, he whom Yahweh wishes to punish will fall into it.
15孩童心中藏愚昧,只有戒尺能驱逐。 15The heart of the child is naturally foolish, the beating of instruction will cure it.
16欺压穷人,是使他致富;餽赠富者,是使他贫穷。 16When you oppress the poor, you make them grow; when you give to the rich, you waste everything.
17你应当倾听智者的训言,应专心致意领会我的知识。 17Give ear, listen to the words of the wise and apply yourself to understanding them,
18你若细心存想,常在口中诵念,必会令你喜悦。 18because it will be your delight to keep them deep within you, to have them always ready on your lips.
19为使你的信赖全托于上主,我今日特将道路指示给你。 19I wish now to teach you, so that you will place your trust in Yahweh.
20关于教诲和知识,我岂未多次写过, 20Have I not written for you thirty chapters of advice and knowledge
21使你认识真言实理,答复前来问你的人? 21so that you may recognize the truth and be able to answer rightly him who sent you?
22你不可因为人穷而剥削穷人,亦不可在城门口欺压弱小者; 22Do not take from the poor man just because he is poor or condemn the one in misfortune,
23因为他们的案件,上主必予以辩护;凡剥夺他们的人,上主必讨其生命。 23because Yahweh will intercede for them and will carry off the life of their oppressors.
24易怒的人,不可与他交结,暴躁的人,不要与他往来, 24Do not befriend the angry man or be a companion to the one of rage,
25免得你沾染他的恶习,甘冒丧失性命的危险。 25for fear you adopt their ways and lose your life in their midst.
26不要为别人击掌,不要为债务作保; 26Do not be one of those who undertake a commitment and act as guarantor of debts;
27免得你没有什么偿还时,连你的床榻也被人夺走。 27if you cannot pay, they will take from you the very bed in which you sleep.
28祖先立定的旧界,你不要加以移动。 28Do not move the ancient boundaries established by your forefathers.
29你曾见过办事能干的人吗?他必侍立在君王面前,决不侍立在佣人面前。 29You see a clever man at work? He will enter the service of kings; he will not stay in the service of people of no renown.
