默示录 Revelation
1这些事以后,我看见天上有一个门开了,并且有我初次听见,那同我说话像似号角的声音,说:「你上到这里来,我要指示给你,这些事以后必须要发生的事。」1After this, I looked up to the wall of the sky and saw an open door. The voice which I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, "Come up here and I will show you what will come in the future."
2我立刻神魂超拔了。看,在天上安置了一个宝座,有一位坐在那宝座上的。2Immediately I was seized by the Spirit. There, in heaven, was a throne and one sitting on it.
3那位坐着的,看来好似水苍玉和红玛瑙;围绕宝座的虹霓,看来好似翡翠。3He who sat there looked like jasper and carnelian and round the throne was a rainbow resembling an emerald.
4宝座周围还有二十四个宝座,宝座上坐着二十四位长老:身穿白衣头戴金冠。4In a circle around the throne are twenty-four thrones and seated on these are twenty-four elders, dressed in white clothes, with golden crowns on their heads.
5有闪电、响声和雷霆从那宝座发出来;在宝座前还燃著七个火炬,那就是天主的七神。5Flashes of lightning come forth from the throne, with voices and thunderclaps. Seven flaming torches burn before the throne; these are the seven spirits of God.
6宝座前面有如玻璃海,仿佛水晶;在宝座每一面当中,在宝座周围,有四个活物,前后都满了眼睛:6Before the throne there is a platform, transparent like crystal. Around and beside the throne stand four living creatures, full of eyes, both in front and behind.
7第一个活物像狮子,第二个活物像牛犊,第三个活物面貌像人,第四个活物像飞鹰。7The first living creature is like a lion, the second like a bull, the third has the face of a man and the fourth looks like a flying eagle.
8那四个活物,个个都有六个翅膀,周围内外都满了眼睛,日夜不停地说:「圣!圣!圣!上主,全能的天主,是昔在、今在及将来永在者。」8Each of the four living creatures has six wings full of eyes, all around as well as within; day and night they sing without ceasing, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, master of the universe, who was, and is and is to come.
9每逢那些活物将光荣、尊威和颂谢归于那坐在宝座上的,万世万代的永生者时,9Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to the One on the throne, he who lives for ever and ever,
10二十四位长老就俯伏在坐于宝座的那位前,朝拜那万世万代的永生者,且把他们的荣冠投在宝座前说:10the twenty-four elders fall down before him and worship the One who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns in front of the throne and say,
11「上主,我们的天主!你是堪受光荣、尊威和权能的,因为你创造了万物,万物都是因了你的旨意而存在,而造成的。」11Our Lord and God, worthy are you to receive glory, honor and power! For you have created all things; by your will they came to be and were made.
