27:1
犹大王约西亚的儿子约雅敬(约雅敬是西底家的别名,看第三节)登基的时候,有这话从耶和华临到耶利米说,
Early in the reign of Zedekiah son of Josiah king of Judah, this word came to Jeremiah from the Lord :
27:2
耶和华对我如此说,你作绳索与轭,加在自己的颈项上,
This is what the Lord said to me: "Make a yoke out of straps and crossbars and put it on your neck.
27:3
借那些来到耶路撒冷见犹大王西底家的使臣之手,把绳索与轭送到以东王,摩押王,亚扪王,推罗王,西顿王那里,

27:5
我用大能和伸出来的膀臂,创造大地和地上的人民,牲畜。我看给谁相宜,就把地给谁。
With my great power and outstretched arm I made the earth and its people and the animals that are on it, and I give it to anyone I please.
27:6
现在我将这些地都交给我仆人巴比伦王尼布甲尼撒的手,我也将田野的走兽给他使用。
Now I will hand all your countries over to my servant Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; I will make even the wild animals subject to him.
27:7
列国都必服事他和他的儿孙,直到他本国遭报的日期来到。那时,多国和大君王要使他作他们的奴仆。
All nations will serve him and his son and his grandson until the time for his land comes; then many nations and great kings will subjugate him.
27:8
无论哪一邦哪一国,不肯服事这巴比伦王尼布甲尼撒,也不把颈项放在巴比伦王的轭下,我必用刀剑,饥荒,瘟疫刑罚那邦,直到我借巴比伦王的手将他们毁灭。这是耶和华说的。
' If, however, any nation or kingdom will not serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon or bow its neck under his yoke, I will punish that nation with the sword, famine and plague, declares the Lord , until I destroy it by his hand.
27:9
至于你们,不可听从你们的先知和占卜的,圆梦的,观兆的,以及行邪术的。他们告诉你们说,你们不至服事巴比伦王。
So do not listen to your prophets, your diviners, your interpreters of dreams, your mediums or your sorcerers who tell you, 'You will not serve the king of Babylon.'
27:10
他们向你们说假预言,要叫你们迁移,远离本地,以致我将你们赶出去,使你们灭亡。

27:11
但哪一邦肯把颈项放在巴比伦王的轭下服事他,我必使那邦仍在本地存留,得以耕种居住。这是耶和华说的。
But if any nation will bow its neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon and serve him, I will let that nation remain in its own land to till it and to live there, declares the Lord ." ' "
27:12
我就照这一切的话对犹大王西底家说,要把你们的颈项放在巴比伦王的轭下,服事他和他的百姓,便得存活。
I gave the same message to Zedekiah king of Judah. I said, "Bow your neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon; serve him and his people, and you will live.
27:13
你和你的百姓为何要因刀剑,饥荒,瘟疫死亡,正如耶和华论到不服事巴比伦王的那国说的话呢?
Why will you and your people die by the sword, famine and plague with which the Lord has threatened any nation that will not serve the king of Babylon?
27:14
不可听那些先知对你们所说的话。他们说,你们不至服事巴比伦王,其实他们向你们说假预言。

27:16
我又对祭司和这众民说,耶和华如此说,你们不可听那先知对你们所说的预言。他们说,耶和华殿中的器皿快要从巴比伦带回来。其实他们向你们说假预言。
Then I said to the priests and all these people, "This is what the Lord says: Do not listen to the prophets who say, 'Very soon now the articles from the Lord 's house will be brought back from Babylon.' They are prophesying lies to you.
27:17
不可听从他们,只管服事巴比伦王便得存活。这城何至变为荒场呢?
Do not listen to them. Serve the king of Babylon, and you will live. Why should this city become a ruin?
27:18
他们若果是先知,有耶和华的话临到他们,让他们祈求万军之耶和华,使那在耶和华殿中和犹大王宫内,并耶路撒冷剩下的器皿,不被带到巴比伦去。
If they are prophets and have the word of the Lord , let them plead with the Lord Almighty that the furnishings remaining in the house of the Lord and in the palace of the king of Judah and in Jerusalem not be taken to Babylon.
27:19
因为万军之耶和华论到柱子,铜海,盆座,并剩在这城里的器皿,

27:22
必被带到巴比伦存在那里,直到我眷顾以色列人的日子。那时,我必将这器皿带回来,交还此地。这是耶和华说的。
'They will be taken to Babylon and there they will remain until the day I come for them,' declares the Lord . 'Then I will bring them back and restore them to this place.' "
