以賽亞書 Isaiah


Chapter Verses < 前一章 目录 下一章 >
44:1
我的仆人雅各,我所拣选的以色列阿,现在你当听。
But now listen, O Jacob, my servant, Israel, whom I have chosen.
44:2
造作你,又从你出胎造就你,并要帮助你的耶和华如此说,我的仆人雅各,我所拣选的耶书仑哪,不要害怕。
This is what the Lord says- he who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you: Do not be afraid, O Jacob, my servant, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen.
44:3
因为我要将水浇灌口渴的人,将河浇灌干旱之地。我要将我的灵浇灌你的后裔,将我的福浇灌你的子孙。
For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants.
44:4
他们要发生在草中,像溪水旁的柳树。
They will spring up like grass in a meadow, like poplar trees by flowing streams.
44:5
这个要说,我是属耶和华的。那个要以雅各的名自称。又一个要亲手写归耶和华的(或作在手上写归耶和华)并自称为以色列。
One will say, 'I belong to the Lord '; another will call himself by the name of Jacob; still another will write on his hand, 'The Lord 's,' and will take the name Israel.
44:6
耶和华以色列的君,以色列的救赎主万军之耶和华如此说,我是首先的,我是末后的,除我以外,再没有真神。
This is what the Lord says- Israel's King and Redeemer, the Lord Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God.
44:7
自从我设立古时的民,谁能像我宣告,并且指明,又为自己陈说呢?让他将未来的事,和必成的事说明。
Who then is like me? Let him proclaim it. Let him declare and lay out before me what has happened since I established my ancient people, and what is yet to come- yes, let him foretell what will come.
44:8
你们不要恐惧,也不要害怕。我岂不是从上古就说明指示你们吗?并且你们是我的见证,除我以外,岂有真神吗?诚然没有磐石,我不知道一个。
Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? No, there is no other Rock; I know not one."
44:9
制造雕刻偶像的,尽都虚空。他们所喜悦的,都无益处。他们的见证,无所看见,无所知晓,他们便觉羞愧。
All who make idols are nothing, and the things they treasure are worthless. Those who would speak up for them are blind; they are ignorant, to their own shame.
44:10
谁制造神像,铸造无益的偶像?
Who shapes a god and casts an idol, which can profit him nothing?
44:11
看哪,他的同伴都必羞愧,工匠也不过是人。任他们聚会,任他们站立,都必惧怕,一同羞愧。
He and his kind will be put to shame; craftsmen are nothing but men. Let them all come together and take their stand; they will be brought down to terror and infamy.
44:12
铁匠把铁在火炭中烧热,用锤打铁器,用他有力的臂膀锤成。他饥饿而无力,不喝水而发倦。
The blacksmith takes a tool and works with it in the coals; he shapes an idol with hammers, he forges it with the might of his arm. He gets hungry and loses his strength; he drinks no water and grows faint.
44:13
木匠拉线,用笔划出样子。用刨子刨成形状,用圆尺划了模样,仿照人的体态,作成人形,好住在房屋中。
The carpenter measures with a line and makes an outline with a marker; he roughs it out with chisels and marks it with compasses. He shapes it in the form of man, of man in all his glory, that it may dwell in a shrine.
44:14
他砍伐香柏树,又取柞(或作青桐)树和橡树,在树林中选定了一棵。他栽种松树得雨长养,
He cut down cedars, or perhaps took a cypress or oak. He let it grow among the trees of the forest, or planted a pine, and the rain made it grow.
44:15
这树,人可用以烧火,他自己取些烤火,又烧着烤饼。而且作神像跪拜,作雕刻的偶像向它叩拜。
It is man's fuel for burning; some of it he takes and warms himself, he kindles a fire and bakes bread. But he also fashions a god and worships it; he makes an idol and bows down to it.
44:16
他把一分烧在火中,把一分烤肉吃饱。自己烤火说,阿哈,我暖和了,我见火了。
Half of the wood he burns in the fire; over it he prepares his meal, he roasts his meat and eats his fill. He also warms himself and says, "Ah! I am warm; I see the fire."
44:17
他用剩下的作了一神,就是雕刻的偶像,他向这偶像俯伏叩拜,祷告它说,求你拯救我,因你是我的神。
From the rest he makes a god, his idol; he bows down to it and worships. He prays to it and says, "Save me; you are my god."
44:18
他们不知道,也不思想,因为耶和华闭住他们的眼不能看见,塞住他们的心不能明白。
They know nothing, they understand nothing; their eyes are plastered over so they cannot see, and their minds closed so they cannot understand.
44:19
谁心里也不醒悟,也没有知识,没有聪明,能说,我曾拿一分在火中烧了,在炭火上烤过饼,我也烤过肉吃,这剩下的,我岂要作可憎的物吗?我岂可向木墩子叩拜呢?
No one stops to think, no one has the knowledge or understanding to say, "Half of it I used for fuel; I even baked bread over its coals, I roasted meat and I ate. Shall I make a detestable thing from what is left? Shall I bow down to a block of wood?"
44:20
他以灰为食,心中昏迷,使他偏邪,他不能自救,也不能说,我右手中岂不是有虚谎吗?
He feeds on ashes, a deluded heart misleads him; he cannot save himself, or say, "Is not this thing in my right hand a lie?"
44:21
雅各以色列阿,你是我的仆人,要记念这些事。以色列阿,你是我的仆人,我造就你必不忘记你。
Remember these things, O Jacob, for you are my servant, O Israel. I have made you, you are my servant; O Israel, I will not forget you.
44:22
我涂抹了你的过犯,像厚云消散。我涂抹了你的罪恶,如薄云灭没。你当归向我,因我救赎了你。
I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you."
44:23
诸天哪,应当歌唱,因为耶和华作成这事。地的深处阿,应当欢呼,众山应当发声歌唱,树林和其中所有的树,都当如此,因为耶和华救赎了雅各,并要因以色列荣耀自己。
Sing for joy, O heavens, for the Lord has done this; shout aloud, O earth beneath. Burst into song, you mountains, you forests and all your trees, for the Lord has redeemed Jacob, he displays his glory in Israel.
44:24
从你出胎,造就你的救赎主耶和华如此说,我耶和华是创造万物的,是独自铺张诸天,铺开大地的。(谁与我同在呢)
This is what the Lord says- your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the Lord , who has made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself,
44:25
使说假话的兆头失效,使占卜的癫狂,使智慧人退后,使他的知识变为愚拙。
who foils the signs of false prophets and makes fools of diviners, who overthrows the learning of the wise and turns it into nonsense,
44:26
使我仆人的话语立定,我使者的谋算成就。论到耶路撒冷说,必有人居住。论到犹大的城邑说,必被建造。其中的荒场我也必兴起。
who carries out the words of his servants and fulfills the predictions of his messengers, who says of Jerusalem, 'It shall be inhabited,' of the towns of Judah, 'They shall be built,' and of their ruins, 'I will restore them,'
44:27
对深渊说,你干了吧。我也要使你的江河干涸。
who says to the watery deep, 'Be dry, and I will dry up your streams,'
44:28
论古列说,他是我的牧人,必成就我所喜悦的,必下令建造耶路撒冷,发命立稳圣殿的根基。
who says of Cyrus, 'He is my shepherd and will accomplish all that I please; he will say of Jerusalem, "Let it be rebuilt," and of the temple, "Let its foundations be laid." '
