耶利米書 Jeremiah


Chapter Verses
5:1
你们当在耶路撒冷的街上跑来跑去,在宽阔处寻找,看看有一人行公义求诚实没有。若有,我就赦免这城。
Go up and down the streets of Jerusalem, look around and consider, search through her squares. If you can find but one person who deals honestly and seeks the truth, I will forgive this city.
5:2
其中的人虽然指着永生的耶和华起誓,所起的誓实在是假的。
Although they say, 'As surely as the Lord lives,' still they are swearing falsely."
5:3
耶和华阿,你的眼目不是看顾诚实吗?你击打他们,他们却不伤恸。你毁灭他们,他们仍不受惩治。他们使脸刚硬过于磐石,不肯回头。
O Lord , do not your eyes look for truth? You struck them, but they felt no pain; you crushed them, but they refused correction. They made their faces harder than stone and refused to repent.
5:4
我说,这些人实在是贫穷的,是愚昧的,因为不晓得耶和华的作为和他们神的法则。
I thought, "These are only the poor; they are foolish, for they do not know the way of the Lord , the requirements of their God.
5:5
我要去见尊大的人,对他们说话,因为他们晓得耶和华的作为和他们神的法则。哪知,这些人齐心将轭折断,挣开绳索。
So I will go to the leaders and speak to them; surely they know the way of the Lord , the requirements of their God." But with one accord they too had broken off the yoke and torn off the bonds.
5:6
因此,林中的狮子必害死他们。晚上(或作野地)的豺狼必灭绝他们。豹子要在城外窥伺他们。凡出城的必被撕碎。因为他们的罪过极多,背道的事也加增了。
Therefore a lion from the forest will attack them, a wolf from the desert will ravage them, a leopard will lie in wait near their towns to tear to pieces any who venture out, for their rebellion is great and their backslidings many.
5:7
我怎能赦免你呢?你的儿女离弃我,又指着那不是神的起誓。我使他们饱足,他们就行奸淫,成群地聚集在娼妓家里。
Why should I forgive you? Your children have forsaken me and sworn by gods that are not gods. I supplied all their needs, yet they committed adultery and thronged to the houses of prostitutes.
5:8

The house of Israel and the house of Judah have been utterly unfaithful to me," declares the Lord .
5:12
他们不认耶和华,说,这并不是他,灾祸必不临到我们。刀剑和饥荒,我们也看不见。
They have lied about the Lord ; they said, "He will do nothing! No harm will come to us; we will never see sword or famine.
5:13
先知的话必成为风。道也不在他们里面。这灾必临到他们身上。
The prophets are but wind and the word is not in them; so let what they say be done to them."
5:14
所以耶和华万军之神如此说,因为百姓说这话,我必使我的话在你口中为火,使他们为柴。这火便将他们烧灭。

5:15
耶和华说,以色列家阿,我必使一国的民从远方来攻击你,是强盛的国,是从古而有的国。他们的言语你不晓得,他们的话你不明白。

Hear this, you foolish and senseless people, who have eyes but do not see, who have ears but do not hear:
5:22
耶和华说,你们怎么不惧怕我呢?我以永远的定例,用沙为海的界限,水不得越过。因此,你们在我面前还不战兢吗?波浪虽然翻腾,却不能逾越。虽然砰訇,却不能过去。

你们的罪孽使这些事转离你们。你们的罪恶使你们不能得福。
Your wrongdoings have kept these away; your sins have deprived you of good.

他们肥胖光润,作恶过甚,不为人伸冤。就是不为孤儿伸冤,不使他亨通,也不为穷人辨屈。

5:29

5:30
国中有可惊骇,可憎恶的事,
A horrible and shocking thing has happened in the land:
5:31
就是先知说假预言,祭司借他们把持权柄。我的百姓也喜爱这些事,到了结局你们怎样行呢?
