达尼尔 Daniel
1我拿步高安居在家中,在宫内行乐的时候, 1I, Nabuchodonosor, was at rest in my house, and flourishing in my palace:
2忽然做了一梦,这梦使我害怕;我当时在床上所有的幻想,脑中所有的异象,使我心慌意乱, 2I saw a dream that affrighted me: and my thoughts in my bed, and the visions of my head troubled me.
3遂下了一道谕令,召巴比伦所有的智者到我面前来,给我解说那梦的意义。 3Then I set forth a decree, that all the wise men of Babylon should be brought in before me, and that they should shew me the interpretation of the dream.
4巫师、术士、占星者、占卜者都来了,我当面给他们说出了那梦,但他们却不能给我解说那梦的意义。 4Then came in the diviners, the wise men, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers, and I told the dream before them: but they did not shew me the interpretation thereof:
5最后,达尼尔来到我面前,──他按我神的名字,起名叫贝耳特沙匝,这人身上具有至圣神明的精神;我给他讲述梦说: 5Till their colleague Daniel came in before me, whose name is Baltassar, according to the name of my god, who hath in him the spirit of the holy gods: and I told the dream before him.
6「巫师长贝耳特沙匝!我知道你这个人具有至圣神明的精神,没有什么奥秘可以难住你,请听我梦中所见的异象,给我一个解释: 6Baltassar, prince of the diviners, because I know that thou hast in thee the spirit of the holy gods, and that no secret is impossible to thee: tell me the visions of my dreams that I have seen, and the interpretation of them.
7我在床上脑中所有的异象是这样:我忽然看见从地中生出一棵树来,极其高大。 7This was the vision of my head in my bed: I saw, and behold a tree in the midst of the earth, and the height thereof was exceeding great.
8这棵树长的非常粗壮,高可摩天,大地四极都可见到; 8The tree was great, and strong: and the height thereof reached unto heaven: the sight thereof was even to the ends of all the earth.
9树叶美丽,果实繁多,足以供养一切生灵,田野的走兽安息在它的荫下,空中的飞鸟栖息在它的枝杈上,一切生物都由它获得供养。 9Its leaves were most beautiful, and its fruit exceeding much: and in it was food for all: under it dwelt cattle, and beasts, and in the branches thereof the fowls of the air had their abode: and all flesh did eat of it.
10我在床上,在我脑海所得的异象中,我看见有一位守卫兼圣者自天降下, 10I saw in the vision of my head upon my bed, and behold a watcher, and a holy one came down from heaven.
11他大声呼喊说:砍倒这棵树,砍断它的枝条,摇落它的叶子,打下它的果实,叫走兽离开它下面,叫飞鸟飞离它的枝杈, 11He cried aloud, and said thus: Cut down the tree, and chop off the branches thereof: shake off its leaves, and scatter its fruits: let the beasts fly away that are under it, and the birds from its branches.
12但在地上只留下它根上的余干,用铁索和铜链将它捆住,放在田野的青草中,让他为露水浸湿,与田野的走兽分食地上的青草, 12Nevertheless leave the stump of its roots in the earth, and let it be tied with a band of iron, and of brass, among the grass, that is without, and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let its portion be with the wild beasts in the grass of the earth.
13使他的心改变不像人心,给他一个兽心,在他身上要这样经历七段时期。 13Let his heart be changed from man's, and let a beast's heart be given him; and let seven times pass over him.
14这是守卫者宣布的定案,这是圣者所出的命令,好使众生知道:是至高者统治世人的国家,他将国权愿意给谁,就给谁;他可以将人间最卑贱的立为最高者。 14This is the decree by the sentence of the watchers, and the word and demand of the holy ones; till the living know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men; and he will give it to whomsoever it shall please him, and he will appoint the basest man over it.
15这是我拿步高王所做的梦。现在,贝耳特沙匝!请你给我说出这梦的意义,因为我国内所有的智者,都不能使我知道这梦的意义,只有你能,因为只有你具有至圣神明的精神。」 15I king Nabuchodonosor saw this dream: thou, therefore, O Baltassar, tell me quickly the interpretation: for all the wise men of my kingdom are not able to declare the meaning of it to me: but thou art able, because the spirit of the holy gods is in thee.
16名叫贝耳特沙匝的达尼尔,一时愕然,他想像的事,使他恐惧;君王于是说道:「贝耳特沙匝!不要为这梦和这梦的意义心乱!」贝耳特沙匝回答说:「我的主上!愿这梦应验在仇恨你的人身上,愿这梦的朕兆应验在你的敌人身上! 16Then Daniel, whose name was Baltassar, began silently to think within himself for about one hour: and his thoughts troubled him. But the king answering, said: Baltassar, let not the dream and the interpretation thereof trouble thee. Baltassar answered, and said: My lord, the dream be to them that hate thee, and the interpretation thereof to thy enemies.
17你所见的那棵树,长的非常粗大,高可摩天,大地四极都可见到, 17The tree which thou sawest which was high and strong, whose height reached to the skies, and the sight thereof into all the earth:
18树叶美丽,果实繁多,足以供养一切生灵,田野的走兽安息在它的荫下,空中的飞鸟栖息在它的枝条上。 18And the branches thereof were most beautiful, and its fruit exceeding much, and in it was food for all, under which the beasts of the field dwelt, and the birds of the air had their abode in its branches.
19大王!那树就是你,你长得高大强壮,你的伟大高可摩天,你的权势达于地极。 19It is thou, O king, who art grown great and become mighty: for thy greatness hath grown, and hath reached to heaven, and thy power unto the ends of the earth.
20至于大王所见的那位警卫兼圣者自降下说:砍倒、毁灭这棵树!只在地上留下它根子的余干,用铁索和铜链将它捆住,放在田野的青草中,让他为露水浸湿,与田野的走兽分食,这样在他身上直到经历了七段时期。── 20And whereas the king saw a watcher, and a holy one come down from heaven, and say: Cut down the tree and destroy it, but leave the stump of the roots thereof in the earth, and let it be bound with iron and brass among the grass without, and let it be sprinkled with the dew of heaven, and let his feeding be with the wild beasts, till seven times pass over him.
21大王!这是那梦的意义,这是要临到我主,大王身上的至高者的判决: 21This is the interpretation of the sentence of the most High, which is come upon my lord the king.
22你将由人间被驱遂,与田野的走兽为伍,你吃草如同牛一样,为露水浸湿,要这样经历七段时期,直到你承认至高者统治世人的国度,愿意给谁,就给谁。 22They shall cast thee out from among men, and thy dwelling shall be with cattle and with wild beasts, and thou shalt eat grass as an ox, and shalt be wet with the dew of heaven: and seven times shall pass over thee, till thou know that the most High ruleth over the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
23至于所说在地中只留下树根的余干,是说到你承认上天统治一切时,你的国仍再归于你。 23But whereas he commanded, that the stump of the roots thereof, that is, of the tree, should be left: thy kingdom shall remain to thee after thou shalt have known that power is from heaven.
24为此,大王!望你接纳我的劝告:厉行正义,补赎罪过,怜贫济困,以抵偿不义;如此你的福乐或许可得延长。」 24Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable to thee, and redeem thou thy sins with alms, and thy iniquities with works of mercy to the poor: perhaps he will forgive thy offences.
25这一切都临在拿步高王身上: 25All these things came upon king Nabuchodonosor.
26十二个月以后,王在巴比伦王宫的楼台上散步时, 26At the end of twelve months he was walking in the palace of Babylon.
27自言自语:「这不是我以大能大力,为彰显我的威荣而建为王都的大巴比伦吗?」 27And the king answered, and said: Is not this the great Babylon, which I have built to be the seat of the kingdom, by the strength of my power, and in the glory of my excellence?
28这些话君王还未说出口,便有声音从天上传来说:「拿步高王!现在有话告诉你:你的王位已被人夺去了! 28And while the word was yet in the king's mouth, a voice came down from heaven: To thee, O king Nabuchodonosor, it is said: Thy kingdom shall pass from thee,
29你要由人间被驱逐,与田野的走兽为伍,你要吃草如同牛一样,这样,在你身上经历七段时期,直到你承认至高者统治世人的国度,他愿意给谁,就给谁。」 29And they shall cast thee out from among men, and thy dwelling shall be with cattle and wild beasts: thou shalt eat grass like an ox, and seven times shall pass over thee, till thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
30这话立即在拿步高身上应验了:他被逐离开了人群,吃草如同牛一样,他的身体为露水浸湿,直到他的头发长得有如鹰的羽翼,指甲有如鸟的爪子。 30The same hour the word was fulfilled upon Nabuchodonosor, and he was driven away from among men, and did eat grass like an ox, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven: till his hairs grew like the feathers of eagles, and his nails like birds' claws.
31这期限过了以后,我拿步高举目望天,我的理智恢复了常态,我立刻称谢至高者,赞美颂扬永生者,因为他的主权永远常存,他的王国世世常在。 31Now at the end of the days, I Nabuchodonosor lifted up my eyes to heaven, and my sense was restored to me: and I blessed the most High, and I praised and glorified him that liveth for ever: for his power is an everlasting power, and his kingdom is to all generations.
32地上的一切居民为他等于虚无,他对天上军旅和地上的居民随意而行,没有能阻止他的,或问他说:你作什么? 32And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing before him: for he doth according to his will, as well with the powers of heaven, as among the inhabitants of the earth: and there is none that can resist his hand, and say to him: Why hast thou done it?
33就在那一时刻,我的理智恢复了常态,恢复了我王国的光荣,仍享威严富贵,我的朝臣和大官仍前来求见;我的国又归我所有,并且也给我增加了极大的权势。 33At the same time my sense returned to me, and I came to the honour and glory of my kingdom: and my shape returned to me: and my nobles, and my magistrates sought for me, and I was restored to my kingdom: and greater majesty was added to me.
34现在,我拿步高要称颂、赞扬和光荣天上的君王,因为他的一切作为是真理,他的道路是正义;凡行动傲慢的,他都能压伏。」 34Therefore I Nabuchodonosor do now praise, and magnify, and glorify the King of heaven: because all his works are true, and his ways judgments, and them that walk in pride he is able to abase.
