申命記 Deuteronomy


Chapter Verses
15:1
每逢七年末一年,你要施行豁免。
At the end of every seven years you must cancel debts.
15:2
豁免的定例乃是这样,凡债主要把所借给邻舍的豁免了。不可向邻舍和弟兄追讨,因为耶和华的豁免年已经宣告了。
This is how it is to be done: Every creditor shall cancel the loan he has made to his fellow Israelite. He shall not require payment from his fellow Israelite or brother, because the Lord 's time for canceling debts has been proclaimed.
15:3
若借给外邦人,你可以向他追讨。但借给你弟兄,无论是什么,你要松手豁免了。
You may require payment from a foreigner, but you must cancel any debt your brother owes you.
15:4
你若留意听从耶和华你神的话,谨守遵行我今日所吩咐你这一切的命令,就必在你们中间没有穷人了(在耶和华你神所赐你为业的地上,耶和华必大大赐福与你)。
However, there should be no poor among you, for in the land the Lord your God is giving you to possess as your inheritance, he will richly bless you,
15:5
if only you fully obey the Lord your God and are careful to follow all these commands I am giving you today.
15:6
因为耶和华你的神必照他所应许你的赐福与你。你必借给许多国民,却不至向他们借贷。你必管辖许多国民,他们却不能管辖你。
For the Lord your God will bless you as he has promised, and you will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. You will rule over many nations but none will rule over you.
15:7
在耶和华你神所赐你的地上,无论哪一座城里,你弟兄中若有一个穷人,你不可忍着心,揝着手不帮补你穷乏的弟兄。
If there is a poor man among your brothers in any of the towns of the land that the Lord your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward your poor brother.
15:8
总要向他松开手,照他所缺乏的借给他,补他的不足。
Rather be openhanded and freely lend him whatever he needs.
15:9
你要谨慎,不可心里起恶念,说,第七年的豁免年快到了,你便恶眼看你穷乏的弟兄,什么都不给他,以致他因你求告耶和华,罪便归于你了。
Be careful not to harbor this wicked thought: "The seventh year, the year for canceling debts, is near," so that you do not show ill will toward your needy brother and give him nothing. He may then appeal to the Lord against you, and you will be found guilty of sin.
15:10
你总要给他,给他的时候心里不可愁烦。因耶和华你的神必在你这一切所行的,并你手里所办的事上,赐福与你。
Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.
15:11
原来那地上的穷人永不断绝。所以我吩咐你说,总要向你地上困苦穷乏的弟兄松开手。
There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land.
15:12
你弟兄中,若有一个希伯来男人或希伯来女人被卖给你,服事你六年,到第七年就要任他自由出去。
If a fellow Hebrew, a man or a woman, sells himself to you and serves you six years, in the seventh year you must let him go free.
15:13
你任他自由的时候,不可使他空手而去,
And when you release him, do not send him away empty-handed.
15:14
要从你羊群,禾场,酒榨之中多多地给他。耶和华你的神怎样赐福与你,你也要照样给他。
Supply him liberally from your flock, your threshing floor and your winepress. Give to him as the Lord your God has blessed you.
15:15
要记念你在埃及地作过奴仆,耶和华你的神将你救赎。因此,我今日吩咐你这件事。
Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and the Lord your God redeemed you. That is why I give you this command today.
15:16
他若对你说,我不愿意离开你,是因他爱你和你的家,且因在你那里很好,
But if your servant says to you, "I do not want to leave you," because he loves you and your family and is well off with you,
15:17
你就要拿锥子将他的耳朵在门上刺透,他便永为你的奴仆了。你待婢女也要这样。
then take an awl and push it through his ear lobe into the door, and he will become your servant for life. Do the same for your maidservant.
15:18
你任他自由的时候,不可以为难事,因他服事你六年,较比雇工的工价多加一倍了。耶和华你的神就必在你所作的一切事上赐福与你。
Do not consider it a hardship to set your servant free, because his service to you these six years has been worth twice as much as that of a hired hand. And the Lord your God will bless you in everything you do.
15:19
你牛群羊群中头生的,凡是公的,都要分别为圣,归耶和华你的神。牛群中头生的,不可用它耕地。羊群中头生的,不可剪毛。
Set apart for the Lord your God every firstborn male of your herds and flocks. Do not put the firstborn of your oxen to work, and do not shear the firstborn of your sheep.
15:20
这头生的,你和你的家属,每年要在耶和华所选择的地方,在耶和华你神面前吃。
Each year you and your family are to eat them in the presence of the Lord your God at the place he will choose.
15:21
这头生的若有什么残疾,就如瘸腿的,瞎眼的,无论有什么恶残疾,都不可献给耶和华你的神。
If an animal has a defect, is lame or blind, or has any serious flaw, you must not sacrifice it to the Lord your God.
15:22
可以在你城里吃。洁净人与不洁净人都可以吃,就如吃羚羊与鹿一般。
You are to eat it in your own towns. Both the ceremonially unclean and the clean may eat it, as if it were gazelle or deer.
15:23
只是不可吃它的血。要倒在地上,如同倒水一样。
But you must not eat the blood; pour it out on the ground like water.
