耶利米書 Jeremiah


Chapter Verses < 前一章 目录 下一章 >
2:1
耶和华的话临到我说,
The word of the Lord came to me:
2:2
你去向耶路撒冷人的耳中喊叫说,耶和华如此说,你幼年的恩爱,婚姻的爱情,你怎样在旷野,在未曾耕种之地跟随我,我都记得。
Go and proclaim in the hearing of Jerusalem: 'I remember the devotion of your youth, how as a bride you loved me and followed me through the desert, through a land not sown.
2:3
那时以色列归耶和华为圣,作为土产初熟的果子。凡吞吃它的必算为有罪,灾祸必临到他们。这是耶和华说的。
Israel was holy to the Lord , the firstfruits of his harvest; all who devoured her were held guilty, and disaster overtook them,' " declares the Lord .
2:4
雅各家,以色列家的各族阿,你们当听耶和华的话。
Hear the word of the Lord , O house of Jacob, all you clans of the house of Israel.
2:5
耶和华如此说,你们的列祖见我有什么不义,竟远离我,随从虚无的神,自己成为虚妄的呢?
This is what the Lord says: "What fault did your fathers find in me, that they strayed so far from me? They followed worthless idols and became worthless themselves.
2:6
他们也不说,那领我们从埃及地上来,引导我们经过旷野,沙漠有深坑之地,和干旱死荫,无人经过,无人居住之地的耶和华在哪里呢?
They did not ask, 'Where is the Lord , who brought us up out of Egypt and led us through the barren wilderness, through a land of deserts and rifts, a land of drought and darkness, a land where no one travels and no one lives?'
2:7
我领你们进入肥美之地,使你们得吃其中的果子和美物。但你们进入的时候就玷污我的地,使我的产业成为可憎的。
I brought you into a fertile land to eat its fruit and rich produce. But you came and defiled my land and made my inheritance detestable.
2:8
祭司都不说,耶和华在哪里呢?传讲律法的都不认识我。官长违背我。先知借巴力说预言,随从无益的神。
The priests did not ask, 'Where is the Lord ?' Those who deal with the law did not know me; the leaders rebelled against me. The prophets prophesied by Baal, following worthless idols.
2:9
耶和华说,我因此必与你们争辩,也必与你们的子孙争辩。
Therefore I bring charges against you again, declares the Lord . "And I will bring charges against your children's children.
2:10
你们且过到基提海岛去察看,打发人往基达去留心查考,看曾有这样的事没有。
Cross over to the coasts of Kittim and look, send to Kedar and observe closely; see if there has ever been anything like this:
2:11
岂有一国换了他的神吗?其实这不是神。但我的百姓将他们的荣耀换了那无益的神。
Has a nation ever changed its gods? (Yet they are not gods at all.) But my people have exchanged their Glory for worthless idols.
2:12
诸天哪,要因此惊奇,极其恐慌,甚为凄凉。这是耶和华说的。
Be appalled at this, O heavens, and shudder with great horror," declares the Lord .
2:13
因为我的百姓作了两件恶事,就是离弃我这活水的泉源,为自己凿出池子,是破裂不能存水的池子。
My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.
2:14
以色列是仆人吗?是家中生的奴仆吗?为何成为掠物呢?
Is Israel a servant, a slave by birth? Why then has he become plunder?
2:15
少壮狮子向他咆哮,大声吼叫,使他的地荒凉。城邑也都焚烧,无人居住。
Lions have roared; they have growled at him. They have laid waste his land; his towns are burned and deserted.
2:16
挪弗人和答比匿人也打破你的头顶。
Also, the men of Memphis and Tahpanhes have shaved the crown of your head.
2:17
这事临到你身上,不是你自招的吗?不是因耶和华你神引你行路的时候,你离弃他吗?
Have you not brought this on yourselves by forsaking the Lord your God when he led you in the way?
2:18
现今你为何在埃及路上要喝西曷的水呢?你为何在亚述路上要喝大河的水呢?
Now why go to Egypt to drink water from the Shihor ? And why go to Assyria to drink water from the River?
2:19
你自己的恶必惩治你。你背道的事必责备你。由此可知可见,你离弃耶和华你的神,不存敬畏我的心,乃为恶事,为苦事。这是主万军之耶和华说的。
Your wickedness will punish you; your backsliding will rebuke you. Consider then and realize how evil and bitter it is for you when you forsake the Lord your God and have no awe of me," declares the Lord, the Lord Almighty.
2:20
我在古时折断你的轭,解开你的绳索。你说,我必不事奉耶和华。因为你在各高冈上,各青翠树下屈身行淫。(或作我在古时折断你的轭,解开你的绳索,你就说,我必不事奉别神。谁知你在各高冈上,各青翠树下,仍屈身行淫。)
Long ago you broke off your yoke and tore off your bonds; you said, 'I will not serve you!' Indeed, on every high hill and under every spreading tree you lay down as a prostitute.
2:21
然而,我栽你是上等的葡萄树,全然是真种子。你怎么向我变为外邦葡萄树的坏枝子呢?
I had planted you like a choice vine of sound and reliable stock. How then did you turn against me into a corrupt, wild vine?
2:22
你虽用碱,多用肥皂洗濯,你罪孽的痕迹仍然在我面前显出。这是主耶和华说的。
Although you wash yourself with soda and use an abundance of soap, the stain of your guilt is still before me," declares the Sovereign Lord .
2:23
你怎能说,我没有玷污,没有随从众巴力。你看你谷中的路,就知道你所行的如何。你是快行的独峰驼,狂奔乱走。
How can you say, 'I am not defiled; I have not run after the Baals'? See how you behaved in the valley; consider what you have done. You are a swift she-camel running here and there,
2:24
你是野驴,惯在旷野,欲心发动就吸风。起性的时候谁能使它转去呢?凡寻找它的必不至疲乏。在它的月分必能寻见。
a wild donkey accustomed to the desert, sniffing the wind in her craving-in her heat who can restrain her? Any males that pursue her need not tire themselves; at mating time they will find her.
2:25
我说,你不要使脚上无鞋,喉咙干渴。你倒说,这是枉然。我喜爱别神,我必随从他们。
Do not run until your feet are bare and your throat is dry. But you said, 'It's no use! I love foreign gods, and I must go after them.'
2:26
贼被捉拿,怎样羞愧,以色列家和他们的君王,首领,祭司,先知也都照样羞愧。
As a thief is disgraced when he is caught, so the house of Israel is disgraced- they, their kings and their officials, their priests and their prophets.
2:27
他们向木头说,你是我的父。向石头说,你是生我的。他们以背向我,不以面向我。及至遭遇患难的时候却说,起来拯救我们。
They say to wood, 'You are my father,' and to stone, 'You gave me birth.' They have turned their backs to me and not their faces; yet when they are in trouble, they say, 'Come and save us!'
2:28
你为自己作的神在哪里呢?你遭遇患难的时候,叫他们起来拯救你吧。犹大阿,你神的数目与你城的数目相等。
Where then are the gods you made for yourselves? Let them come if they can save you when you are in trouble! For you have as many gods as you have towns, O Judah.
2:29
耶和华说,你们为何与我争辩呢?你们都违背了我。
Why do you bring charges against me? You have all rebelled against me, declares the Lord .
2:30
我责打你们的儿女是徒然的,他们不受惩治。你们自己的刀吞灭你们的先知,好像残害的狮子。
In vain I punished your people; they did not respond to correction. Your sword has devoured your prophets like a ravening lion.
2:31
这世代的人哪,你们要看明耶和华的话。我岂向以色列作旷野呢?或作幽暗之地呢?我的百姓为何说,我们脱离约束,再不归向你了。
You of this generation, consider the word of the Lord : Have I been a desert to Israel or a land of great darkness? Why do my people say, 'We are free to roam; we will come to you no more'
2:32
处女岂能忘记她的妆饰呢?新妇岂能忘记她的美衣呢?我的百姓却忘记了我无数的日子。
Does a maiden forget her jewelry, a bride her wedding ornaments? Yet my people have forgotten me, days without number.
2:33
你怎么修饰你的道路要求爱情呢?就是恶劣的妇人你也叫她们行你的路。
How skilled you are at pursuing love! Even the worst of women can learn from your ways.
2:34
并且你的衣襟上有无辜穷人的血。你杀他们并不是遇见他们挖窟窿,乃是因这一切的事。
On your clothes men find the lifeblood of the innocent poor, though you did not catch them breaking in. Yet in spite of all this
2:35
你还说,我无辜。耶和华的怒气必定向我消了。看哪,我必审问你。因你自说,我没有犯罪。
you say, 'I am innocent; he is not angry with me.' But I will pass judgment on you because you say, 'I have not sinned.'
2:36
你为何东跑西奔要更换你的路呢?你必因埃及蒙羞,像从前因亚述蒙羞一样。
Why do you go about so much, changing your ways? You will be disappointed by Egypt as you were by Assyria.
2:37
你也必两手抱头从埃及出来。因为耶和华已经弃绝你所倚靠的,你必不因他们得顺利。
You will also leave that place with your hands on your head, for the Lord has rejected those you trust; you will not be helped by them.
