以賽亞書 Isaiah


Chapter Verses
48:1
雅各家,称为以色列名下,从犹大水源出来的,当听我言。你们指着耶和华的名起誓,提说以色列的神,却不凭诚实,不凭公义。
Listen to this, O house of Jacob, you who are called by the name of Israel and come from the line of Judah, you who take oaths in the name of the Lord and invoke the God of Israel- but not in truth or righteousness-
48:2
(他们自称为圣城的人,所倚靠的是名为万军之耶和华以色列的神)
you who call yourselves citizens of the holy city and rely on the God of Israel- the Lord Almighty is his name:
48:3
主说,早先的事我从古时说明,已经出了我的口,也是我所指示的,我忽然行作,事便成就。
I foretold the former things long ago, my mouth announced them and I made them known; then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass.
48:4
因为我素来知道你是顽梗的,你的颈项是铁的,你的额是铜的,
For I knew how stubborn you were; the sinews of your neck were iron, your forehead was bronze.
48:5
所以我从古时将这事给你说明,在未成以先指示你,免得你说,这些事是我的偶像所行的,是我雕刻的偶像,和我铸造的偶像所命定的。
Therefore I told you these things long ago; before they happened I announced them to you so that you could not say, 'My idols did them; my wooden image and metal god ordained them.'
48:6
你已经听见,现在要看见这一切,你不说明吗?从今以后,我将新事就是你所不知道的隐密事,指示你。
You have heard these things; look at them all. Will you not admit them? "From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you.
48:7
这事是现今造的,并非从古就有,在今日以先,你也未曾听见,免得你说,这事我早已知道了。
They are created now, and not long ago; you have not heard of them before today. So you cannot say, 'Yes, I knew of them.'
48:8
你未曾听见,未曾知道,你的耳朵从来未曾开通。我原知道你行事极其诡诈,你自从出胎以来,便称为悖逆的。
You have neither heard nor understood; from of old your ear has not been open. Well do I know how treacherous you are; you were called a rebel from birth.
48:9
我为我的名,暂且忍怒,为我的颂赞,向你容忍,不将你剪除。
For my own name's sake I delay my wrath; for the sake of my praise I hold it back from you, so as not to cut you off.
48:10
我熬炼你,却不像熬炼银子。你在苦难的炉中,我拣选你。
See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.
48:11
我为自己的缘故必行这事,我焉能使我的名被亵渎,我必不将我的荣耀归给假神。
For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this. How can I let myself be defamed? I will not yield my glory to another.
48:12
雅各,我所选召的以色列阿,当听我言。我是耶和华,我是首先的,也是末后的。
Listen to me, O Jacob, Israel, whom I have called: I am he; I am the first and I am the last.
48:13
我手立了地的根基,我右手铺张诸天,我一招呼便都立住。
My own hand laid the foundations of the earth, and my right hand spread out the heavens; when I summon them, they all stand up together.
48:14
你们都当聚集而听,他们(或作偶像)内中谁说过这些事。耶和华所爱的人,必向巴比伦行他所喜悦的事,他的膀臂也要加在迦勒底人身上。
Come together, all of you, and listen: Which of the idols has foretold these things? The Lord 's chosen ally will carry out his purpose against Babylon; his arm will be against the Babylonians.
48:15
惟有我曾说过,我又选召他,领他来,他的道路就必亨通。
I, even I, have spoken; yes, I have called him. I will bring him, and he will succeed in his mission.
48:16
你们要就近我来听这话。我从起头并未曾在隐密处说话,自从有这事,我就在那里。现在主耶和华差遣我和他的灵来。(或作耶和华和他的灵差遣我来)
Come near me and listen to this: From the first announcement I have not spoken in secret; at the time it happens, I am there." And now the Sovereign Lord has sent me, with his Spirit.
48:17
耶和华你的救赎主,以色列的圣者如此说,我是耶和华你的神,教训你使你得益处,引导你所当行的路。
This is what the Lord says- your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: "I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.
48:18
甚愿你素来听从我的命令,你的平安就如河水,你的公义就如海浪。
If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea.
48:19
你的后裔也必多如海沙,你腹中所生的也必多如沙粒。他的名在我面前必不剪除,也不灭绝。
Your descendants would have been like the sand, your children like its numberless grains; their name would never be cut off nor destroyed from before me."
48:20
你们要从巴比伦出来,从迦勒底人中逃脱,以欢呼的声音传扬说,耶和华救赎了他的仆人雅各,你们要将这事宣扬到地极。
Leave Babylon, flee from the Babylonians! Announce this with shouts of joy and proclaim it. Send it out to the ends of the earth; say, "The Lord has redeemed his servant Jacob."
48:21
耶和华引导他们,经过沙漠,他们并不干渴,他为他们使水从磐石而流,分裂磐石水就涌出。
They did not thirst when he led them through the deserts; he made water flow for them from the rock; he split the rock and water gushed out.
48:22
耶和华说,恶人必不得平安。
There is no peace, says the Lord , "for the wicked."
