耶肋米亚 Jeremiah
1当巴比伦王拿步高与自己所有的军队,及他手下统治的天下各国和一切民族,前来进攻耶路撒冷和她所有的城镇时,有上主的话传给耶肋米亚说: 1The word that came to Jeremias from the Lord, (when Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon, and all his army, and all the kingdoms of the earth, that were under the power of his hand, and all the people fought against Jerusalem and against all the cities thereof,) saying:
2「上主以色列的天主这样说:你去对犹大王漆德克雅说,告诉他上主这样说:看,我必将这城交在巴比伦王手中,他将放火烧城, 2Thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel: Go, and speak to Sedecias king of Juda, and say to him: Thus saith the Lord: Behold I will deliver this city into the hands of the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it with fire.
3你必逃不出他的手,终必被擒,交在他手中;你必要与巴比伦王目对目相视,面对面相谈;你必要到巴比伦去; 3And thou shalt not escape out of his hand: but thou shalt surely be taken, and thou shalt be delivered into his hand: and thy eyes shall see the eyes of the king of Babylon, and his mouth shall speak with thy mouth, and thou shalt go to Babylon.
4但是,犹大王漆德克雅!请听上主的话,上主论你这样说:你决不会死在刀下, 4Yet hear the word of the Lord, O Sedecias king of Juda: Thus saith the Lord to thee: Thou shalt not die by the sword.
5必要平安死去;正如有人给在你以前的上代祖先君王焚香,同样也有人给你焚香,向你致哀:『噫嘻,我主!』的确,是我说了这话──上主的断语。」 5But thou shalt die in peace, and according to the burnings of thy fathers, the former kings that were before thee, so shall they burn thee: and they shall mourn for thee, saying: Alas, Lord: for I have spoken the word, saith the Lord.
6耶肋米亚先知就在耶路撒冷,对犹大君王漆德克雅说了这一切话, 6And Jeremias the prophet spoke all these words to Sedecias the king of Juda in Jerusalem.
7那时巴比伦王的军队正在攻打耶路撒冷和犹大所余的城市,攻打拉基士和阿则卡,因为在犹大城市中,只剩下了这两座设防的城市。 7And the army of the king of Babylon fought against Jerusalem, and against all the cities of Juda that were left, against Lachis, and against Azecha: for these remained of the cities of Juda, fenced cities.
8漆德克雅王与当时在耶路撒冷的全体人民订约,要对奴婢宣布自由以后,有上主的话传给耶肋米亚: 8The word that came to Jeremias from the Lord, after that king Sedecias had made a covenant with all the people in Jerusalem making a proclamation:
9每人应释放自己的希伯来奴婢,使他们获享自由;谁也不该再以自己的兄弟犹大人作奴隶。 9That every man should let his manservant, and every man his maidservant, being a Hebrew man or a Hebrew woman, go free: and that they should not lord it over them, to wit, over the Jews their brethren.
10所有入盟的首长和全体人民都同意,每人要释放自己的奴婢,使他们获享自由,不再以他们为奴婢:他们同意了,也释放了。 10And all the princes, and all the people who entered into the covenant, heard that every man should let his manservant, and every man his maidservant go free, and should no more have dominion over them: and they obeyed, and let them go free.
11但是,后来他们改变主意,把他们释放恢复自由的奴婢,再叫回来,强迫他们再作奴婢。 11But afterwards they turned: and brought back again their servants and their handmaids, whom they had let go free, and brought them into subjection as menservants and maidservants.
12于是有上主的话传给耶肋米亚说: 12And the word of the Lord came to Jeremias from the Lord, saying:
13「上主以色列的天主这样说:在我领你们的祖先,由埃及地,奴隶之所,出来的那一天,与他们订立了盟约说: 13Thus saith the Lord the God of Israel: I made a covenant with your fathers in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage, saying:
14每七年初,你们应各自释放卖身给你的希伯来弟兄:他服事了你六年,你应该让他自由离去。你们的祖先却不听,也不向我侧耳。 14At the end of seven years, let ye go every man his brother being a Hebrew, who hath been sold to thee, so he shall serve thee six years: and thou shalt let him go free from thee: and your fathers did not hearken to me, nor did they incline their ear.
15今日你们自己反悔,作了我认为正直的事,各向自己的近人宣布自由,在归我名下的殿里,当着我面订立了盟约。 15And you turned today, and did that which was right in my eyes, in proclaiming liberty every one to his brother: and you made a covenant in my sight, in the house upon which my name is invocated.
16但事后却变了主意,亵渎我名,竟再召回自己已经释放,身获自由的奴婢,迫使他们再做你们的奴婢。 16And you are fallen back, and have defiled my name: and you have brought back again every man his manservant, and every man his maidservant, whom you had let go free, and set at liberty: and you have brought them into subjection to be your servants and handmaids.
17为此上主这样说:你们既不听从我,各向自己的弟兄,各向自己的近人宣布自由,看,我来对你们宣布释放刀剑和瘟疫及饥荒的自由──上主的断语──使你们成为地上一切王国惊慌恐怖的对象。 17Therefore thus saith the Lord: You have not hearkened to me, in proclaiming liberty every man to his brother and every man to his friend: behold I proclaim a liberty for you, saith the Lord, to the sword, to the pestilence, and to the famine: and I will cause you to be removed to all the kingdoms of the earth.
18凡违犯我盟约,即凡不履行剖开牛犊,由两半中间走过,在我面前所立的盟约誓词的人,我必将他们交出: 18And I will give the men that have transgressed my covenant, and have not performed the words of the covenant which they agreed to in my presence, when they cut the calf in two and passed between the parts thereof:
19凡剖开牛犊,由两半中走过的犹大和耶路撒冷的首长、官员、司祭,以及当地的全体人民, 19The princes of Juda, and the princes of Jerusalem, the eunuchs, and the priests, and all the people of the land that passed between the parts of the calf:
20我必将他们悉数交在他们的敌人,和图谋他们性命者的手中,使他们的尸首成为天上飞鸟和地上走兽的食物。 20And I will give them into the hands of their enemies, and into the hands of them that seek their life: and their dead bodies shall be for meat to the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the earth.
21至于犹大王漆德克雅和他的臣相,我也将他们交在他们敌人的手中,交在图谋他们性命者的手中,交在由你们面前撤退的巴比伦王军队的手中。 21And Sedecias the king of Juda, and his princes, I will give into the hands of their enemies, and into the hands of them that seek their lives, and into the hands of the armies of the king of Babylon, which are gone from you.
22我必下令──上主的断语──叫他们再回来,进攻,占领,火烧这座城市;至于犹大的其他城市,我必使它们都化为无人居往的荒野。」 22Behold I will command, saith the Lord, and I will bring them again to this city, and they shall fight against it, and take it, and burn it with fire: and I will make the cities of Juda a desolation, without an inhabitant.
