耶利米書 Jeremiah


Chapter Verses
11:1
耶和华的话临到耶利米说,
This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord :
11:2
当听这约的话,告诉犹大人和耶路撒冷的居民,
Listen to the terms of this covenant and tell them to the people of Judah and to those who live in Jerusalem.
11:3
对他们说,耶和华以色列的神如此说,不听从这约之话的人必受咒诅。
Tell them that this is what the Lord , the God of Israel, says: 'Cursed is the man who does not obey the terms of this covenant-
11:4
这约是我将你们列祖从埃及地领出来,脱离铁炉的那日所吩咐他们的,说,你们要听从我的话,照我一切所吩咐的去行。这样,你们就作我的子民,我也作你们的神。
the terms I commanded your forefathers when I brought them out of Egypt, out of the iron-smelting furnace.' I said, 'Obey me and do everything I command you, and you will be my people, and I will be your God.
11:5
我好坚定向你们列祖所起的誓,给他们流奶与蜜之地,正如今日一样。我就回答说,耶和华阿,阿们。
Then I will fulfill the oath I swore to your forefathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey'-the land you possess today." I answered, "Amen, Lord ."
11:6
耶和华对我说,你要在犹大城邑中和耶路撒冷街市上,宣告这一切话说,你们当听从遵行这约的话。
The Lord said to me, "Proclaim all these words in the towns of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem: 'Listen to the terms of this covenant and follow them.
11:7
因为我将你们列祖从埃及地领出来的那日,直到今日,都是从早起来,切切告诫他们说,你们当听从我的话。
From the time I brought your forefathers up from Egypt until today, I warned them again and again, saying, "Obey me."
11:8
他们却不听从,不侧耳而听,竟随从自己顽梗的恶心去行。所以我使这约中一切咒诅的话临到他们身上。这约是我吩咐他们行的,他们却不去行。
But they did not listen or pay attention; instead, they followed the stubbornness of their evil hearts. So I brought on them all the curses of the covenant I had commanded them to follow but that they did not keep.' "
11:9
耶和华对我说,在犹大人和耶路撒冷居民中有同谋背叛的事。
Then the Lord said to me, "There is a conspiracy among the people of Judah and those who live in Jerusalem.
11:10
他们转去效法他们的先祖,不肯听我的话,犯罪作孽,又随从别神,事奉它。以色列家和犹大家背了我与他们列祖所立的约。
They have returned to the sins of their forefathers, who refused to listen to my words. They have followed other gods to serve them. Both the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken the covenant I made with their forefathers.
11:11
所以耶和华如此说,我必使灾祸临到他们,是他们不能逃脱的。他们必向我哀求,我却不听。
Therefore this is what the Lord says: 'I will bring on them a disaster they cannot escape. Although they cry out to me, I will not listen to them.
11:12
那时,犹大城邑的人和耶路撒冷的居民要去哀求他们烧香所供奉的神。只是遭难的时候,这些神毫不拯救他们。
The towns of Judah and the people of Jerusalem will go and cry out to the gods to whom they burn incense, but they will not help them at all when disaster strikes.
11:13
犹大阿,你神的数目与你城的数目相等。你为那可耻的巴力所筑烧香的坛也与耶路撒冷街道的数目相等。
You have as many gods as you have towns, O Judah; and the altars you have set up to burn incense to that shameful god Baal are as many as the streets of Jerusalem.'
11:14
所以你不要为这百姓祈祷,不要为他们呼求祷告。因为他们遭难向我哀求的时候,我必不应允。
Do not pray for this people nor offer any plea or petition for them, because I will not listen when they call to me in the time of their distress.
11:15
我所亲爱的,既行许多淫乱,圣肉也离了你,你在我殿中作什么呢?你作恶就喜乐。
What is my beloved doing in my temple as she works out her evil schemes with many? Can consecrated meat avert your punishment ? When you engage in your wickedness, then you rejoice.
11:16
从前耶和华给你起名叫青橄榄树,又华美又结好果子。如今他用哄嚷之声,点火在其上,枝子也被折断。
The Lord called you a thriving olive tree with fruit beautiful in form. But with the roar of a mighty storm he will set it on fire, and its branches will be broken.
11:17
原来栽培你的万军之耶和华已经说,要降祸攻击你,是因以色列家和犹大家行恶,向巴力烧香,惹我发怒,是自作自受。
The Lord Almighty, who planted you, has decreed disaster for you, because the house of Israel and the house of Judah have done evil and provoked me to anger by burning incense to Baal.
11:18
耶和华指示我,我就知道。你将他们所行的给我指明。
Because the Lord revealed their plot to me, I knew it, for at that time he showed me what they were doing.
11:19
我却像柔顺的羊羔被牵到宰杀之地。我并不知道他们设计谋害我,说,我们把树连果子都灭了吧。将他从活人之地剪除,使他的名不再被记念。
I had been like a gentle lamb led to the slaughter; I did not realize that they had plotted against me, saying, "Let us destroy the tree and its fruit; let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name be remembered no more."
11:20
按公义判断,察验人肺腑心肠的万军之耶和华阿,我却要见你在他们身上报仇,因我将我的案件向你禀明了。
But, O Lord Almighty, you who judge righteously and test the heart and mind, let me see your vengeance upon them, for to you I have committed my cause.
11:21
所以,耶和华论到寻索你命的亚拿突人如此说,他们说,你不要奉耶和华的名说预言,免得你死在我们手中。
Therefore this is what the Lord says about the men of Anathoth who are seeking your life and saying, 'Do not prophesy in the name of the Lord or you will die by our hands'-
11:22
所以万军之耶和华如此说,看哪,我必刑罚他们。他们的少年人必被刀剑杀死,他们的儿女必因饥荒灭亡,
therefore this is what the Lord Almighty says: 'I will punish them. Their young men will die by the sword, their sons and daughters by famine.
11:23
并且没有余剩的人留给他们。因为在追讨之年,我必使灾祸临到亚拿突人。
Not even a remnant will be left to them, because I will bring disaster on the men of Anathoth in the year of their punishment.' "
