Chapter Verses < 前一章 目录 下一章 >
5:1
嗐,你们这些富足人哪,应当哭泣,号啕,因为将有苦难临到你们身上。
Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you.
5:2
你们的财物坏了,衣服也被虫子咬了。
Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes.
5:3
你们的金银都长了锈。那锈要证明你们的不是,又要吃你们的肉,如同火烧。你们在这末世,只知积攒钱财。
Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days.
5:4
工人给你们收割庄稼,你们亏欠他们的工钱。这工钱有声音呼叫。并且那收割之人的冤声,已经入了万军之主的耳了。
Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty.
5:5
你们在世上享美福,好宴乐,当宰杀的日子竟娇养你们的心。
You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.
5:6
你们定了义人的罪,把他杀害,他也不抵挡你们。
You have condemned and murdered innocent men, who were not opposing you.
5:7
弟兄们哪,你们要忍耐直到主来。看哪,农夫忍耐等候地里宝贵的出产,直到得了秋雨春雨。
Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord's coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains.
5:8
你们也当忍耐,坚固你们的心。因为主来的日子近了。
You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming is near.
5:9
弟兄们,你们不要彼此埋怨,免得受审判。看哪,审判的主站在门前了。
Don't grumble against each other, brothers, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door!
5:10
弟兄们,你们要把那先前奉主名说话的众先知,当作能受苦能忍耐的榜样。
Brothers, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.
5:11
那先前忍耐的人,我们称他们是有福的,你们听见过约伯的忍耐,也知道主给他的结局,明显主是满心怜悯,大有慈悲。
As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job's perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.
5:12
我的弟兄们,最要紧的是不可起誓。不可指着天起誓,也不可指着地起誓,无论何誓都不可起。你们说话,是就说是,不是就说不是,免得你们落在审判之下。
Above all, my brothers, do not swear--not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. Let your "Yes" be yes, and your "No," no, or you will be condemned.
5:13
你们中间有受苦的呢,他就该祷告。有喜乐的呢,他就该歌颂。
Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise.
5:14
你们中间有病了的呢,他就该请教会的长老来。他们可以奉主的名用油抹他,为他祷告。
Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord.
5:15
出于信心的祈祷,要救那病人,主必叫他起来。他若犯了罪,也必蒙赦免。
And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.
5:16
所以你们要彼此认罪,互相代求,使你们可以得医治。义人祈祷所发的力量,是大有功效的。
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
5:17
以利亚与我们是一样性情的人,他恳切祷告,求不要下雨,雨就三年零六个月不下在地上。
Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years.
5:18
他又祷告,天就降下雨来,地也生出土产。
Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.
5:19
我的弟兄们,你们中间若有失迷真道的,有人使他回转。
My brothers, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring him back,
5:20
这人该知道叫一个罪人从迷路上转回,便是救一个灵魂不死,并且遮盖许多的罪。
remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins.
