德训篇 Sirach
1有三件事,我心中喜乐,这三件事也是上主与世人喜爱的,就是: 1With three things my spirit is pleased, which are approved before God and men:
2兄弟和睦,邻人友爱,夫妇同心。 2The concord of brethren, and the love of neighbours, and man and wife that agree well together.
3有三种人,我心中憎恨;他们的生活,是我厌恶的,就是: 3Three sorts my soul hateth, and I am greatly grieved at their life:
4傲慢的穷人,诡诈的富人,和淫乱无知的老人。 4A poor man that is proud: a rich man that is a liar: an old man that is a fool, and doting.
5你青年时,没有积蓄,到你老时,你能有什么? 5The things that thou hast not gathered in thy youth, how shalt thou find them in thy old age?
6白发老人,善于判断;年高的人,会出主意,是多么美好! 6O how comely is judgment for a grey head, and for ancients to know counsel!
7老年人富有智慧;有荣名的人,聪明而有智谋,何其相称! 7O how comely is wisdom for the aged, and understanding and counsel to men of honour!
8阅历丰富,是老年人的荣冠;敬畏上主,是他们的光荣。 8Much experience is the crown of old men, and the fear of God is their glory.
9有九件事,我心中以为是幸福的;但第十件事,我的口舌更要向人讲述,那就是: 9Nine things that are not to be imagined by the heart have I magnified, and the tenth I will utter to men with my tongue.
10因子女而喜乐,在世上见到敌人失败的人; 10A man that hath joy of his children: and he that liveth and seeth the fall of his enemies.
11能与明智的妇女同居,不使牛驴同轭耕作,口舌没有过错,及不事奉自己属下的人,是有福的; 11Blessed is he. that dwelleth with a wise woman, and that hath not slipped with his tongue, and that hath not served such as are unworthy of him.
12发现明智,和讲给听众的人,是有福的; 12Blessed is he that findeth a true friend, and that declareth justice to an ear that heareth.
13找到智慧和明智的人,是多么伟大!但是无人能超过敬畏上主的人。 13How great is he that findeth wisdom and knowledge! but there is none above him that feareth the Lord.
14敬畏上主,超越一切。 14The fear of God hath set itself above all things:
15获得敬畏上主之情的人,是有福的;怀有敬畏上主之情的人,谁能与他相比? 15Blessed is the man, to whom it is given to have the fear of God: he that holdeth it, to whom shall he be likened?
16敬畏上主,是爱上主的初步;信德是依附上主的起源。 16The fear of God is the beginning of his love: and the beginning of faith is to be fast joined unto it.
17最有损害的,是内心的忧愁;最坏的,是妇女的丑行。 17The sadness of the heart is every plague: and the wickedness of a woman is all evil.
18一切打击都可忍受,但不愿忍受心中的打击; 18And a man will choose any plague, but the plague of the heart:
19一切恶毒都可忍耐,但不愿忍耐妇人的恶毒; 19And any wickedness, but the wickedness of a woman:
20一切侵害都可接受,但不愿接受仇恨者的侵害; 20And any affliction, but the affliction from them that hate him:
21一切报复都可承当,但不愿承当敌人的报复。 21And any revenge, but the revenge of enemies.
22没有比蛇毒更毒的,没有比妇女发怒更暴哮的。 22There is no head worse than the head of a serpent:
23我宁愿与狮龙共处,不愿与恶妇同居。 23And there is no anger above the anger of a woman. It will be more agreeable to abide with a lion and a dragon, than to dwell with a wicked woman.
24妇人的邪恶,使自己的脸面变色,变成丑黑,有如熊脸,仿佛麻袋。 24The wickedness of a woman changeth her face: and she darkeneth her countenance as a bear: and sheweth it like sackcloth. In the midst of her neighbours,
25他的丈夫一和近人同坐,她就不由地悲伤叹息。 25Her husband groaned, and hearing he sighed a little.
26一切恶毒,与妇人的恶毒相比,都算轻微;愿罪人的命运,落在她身上。 26All malice is shore to the malice of a woman, let the lot of sinners fall upon her.
27老年人的脚,难上沙坡;安静的丈夫,难以容忍多言的妻子。 27As the climbing of a sandy way is to the feet of the aged, so is a wife full of tongue to a quiet man.
28不要因妇女的美丽,陷于罪过;也不要因她美丽,就贪恋她。 28Look not upon a woman's beauty, and desire not a woman for beauty.
29令人感到愤怒侮辱与奇耻的事是: 29A woman's anger, and impudence, and confusion is great.
30妇人供养自己的丈夫。 30A woman, if she have superiority, is contrary to her husband.
31恶妇使人意志颓唐,面带忧色,心受创伤。 31A wicked woman abateth the courage, and maketh a heavy countenance, and a wounded heart.
32丈夫手弱膝软,是因为妻子使他陷于不幸。 32Feeble hands, and disjointed knees, a woman that doth not make her husband happy.
33罪恶的起源,来自妇女;为了她,我们都要死亡。 33From the woman came the beginning of sin, and by her we all die.
34不要给水留漏洞,连微小的漏洞也不要留,不要给恶妇任何自由。 34Give no issue to thy water, no, not a little: nor to a wicked woman liberty to gad abroad.
35她若不随从你的指使,在仇人前侮辱你, 35If she walk not at thy hand, she will confound thee in the sight of thy enemies.
36就应把她从你身上割去,免得她常虐待你。 36Cut her off from thy flesh, lest she always abuse thee.
