耶利米書 Jeremiah


Chapter Verses < 前一章 目录 下一章 >
40:1
耶利米锁在耶路撒冷和犹大被掳到巴比伦的人中,护卫长尼布撒拉旦将他从拉玛释放以后,耶和华的话临到耶利米。
The word came to Jeremiah from the Lord after Nebuzaradan commander of the imperial guard had released him at Ramah. He had found Jeremiah bound in chains among all the captives from Jerusalem and Judah who were being carried into exile to Babylon.
40:2
护卫长将耶利米叫来,对他说,耶和华你的神曾说要降这祸与此地。
When the commander of the guard found Jeremiah, he said to him, "The Lord your God decreed this disaster for this place.
40:3
耶和华使这祸临到,照他所说的行了。因为你们得罪耶和华,没有听从他的话,所以这事临到你们。
And now the LORD has brought it about; he has done just as he said he would. All this happened because you people sinned against the LORD and did not obey him.
40:4
现在我解开你手上的链子,你若看与我同往巴比伦去好,就可以去,我必厚待你。你若看与我同往巴比伦去不好,就不必去。看哪,全地在你面前,你以为哪里美好,哪里合宜,只管上哪里去吧。
But today I am freeing you from the chains on your wrists. Come with me to Babylon, if you like, and I will look after you; but if you do not want to, then don't come. Look, the whole country lies before you; go wherever you please."
40:5
耶利米还没有回去,护卫长说,你可以回到沙番的孙子亚希甘的儿子基大利那里去。现在巴比伦王立他作犹大城邑的省长。你可以在他那里住在民中,不然,你看哪里合宜就可以上哪里去。于是护卫长送他粮食和礼物,释放他去了。
However, before Jeremiah turned to go, Nebuzaradan added, "Go back to Gedaliah son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, whom the king of Babylon has appointed over the towns of Judah, and live with him among the people, or go anywhere else you please." Then the commander gave him provisions and a present and let him go.
40:6
耶利米就到米斯巴见亚希甘的儿子基大利,在他那里住在境内剩下的民中。
So Jeremiah went to Gedaliah son of Ahikam at Mizpah and stayed with him among the people who were left behind in the land.
40:7
在田野的一切军长,和属他们的人,听见巴比伦王立了亚希甘的儿子基大利作境内的省长,并将没有掳到巴比伦的男人,妇女,孩童,和境内极穷的人全交给他。
When all the army officers and their men who were still in the open country heard that the king of Babylon had appointed Gedaliah son of Ahikam as governor over the land and had put him in charge of the men, women and children who were the poorest in the land and who had not been carried into exile to Babylon,
40:8
于是军长尼探雅的儿子以实玛利,加利亚的两个儿子约哈难和约拿单,单户篾的儿子西莱雅,并尼陀法人以斐的众子,玛迦人的儿子耶撒尼亚和属他们的人,都到米斯巴见基大利。
they came to Gedaliah at Mizpah-Ishmael son of Nethaniah, Johanan and Jonathan the sons of Kareah, Seraiah son of Tanhumeth, the sons of Ephai the Netophathite, and Jaazaniah the son of the Maacathite, and their men.
40:9
沙番的孙子亚希甘的儿子基大利向他们和属他们的人起誓说,不要怕服事迦勒底人,只管住在这地,服事巴比伦王,就可以得福。
Gedaliah son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, took an oath to reassure them and their men. "Do not be afraid to serve the Babylonians, " he said. "Settle down in the land and serve the king of Babylon, and it will go well with you.
40:10
至于我,我要住在米斯巴,伺候那到我们这里来的迦勒底人。只是你们当积蓄酒,油,和夏天的果子,收在器皿里,住在你们所占的城邑中。
I myself will stay at Mizpah to represent you before the Babylonians who come to us, but you are to harvest the wine, summer fruit and oil, and put them in your storage jars, and live in the towns you have taken over."
40:11
在摩押地和亚扪人中,在以东地和各国的一切犹大人,听见巴比伦王留下些犹大人,并立沙番的孙子亚希甘的儿子基大利管理他们。
When all the Jews in Moab, Ammon, Edom and all the other countries heard that the king of Babylon had left a remnant in Judah and had appointed Gedaliah son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, as governor over them,
40:12
这一切犹大人就从所赶到的各处回来,到犹大地的米斯巴基大利那里,又积蓄了许多的酒,并夏天的果子。
they all came back to the land of Judah, to Gedaliah at Mizpah, from all the countries where they had been scattered. And they harvested an abundance of wine and summer fruit.
40:13
加利亚的儿子约哈难和在田野的一切军长来到米斯巴见基大利,
Johanan son of Kareah and all the army officers still in the open country came to Gedaliah at Mizpah
40:14
对他说,亚扪人的王巴利斯打发尼探雅的儿子以实玛利来要你的命,你知道吗?亚希甘的儿子基大利却不信他们的话。
and said to him, "Don't you know that Baalis king of the Ammonites has sent Ishmael son of Nethaniah to take your life?" But Gedaliah son of Ahikam did not believe them.
40:15
加利亚的儿子约哈难在米斯巴私下对基大利说,求你容我去杀尼探雅的儿子以实玛利,必无人知道。何必让他要你的命,使聚集到你这里来的犹大人都分散,以致犹大剩下的人都灭亡呢?
Then Johanan son of Kareah said privately to Gedaliah in Mizpah, "Let me go and kill Ishmael son of Nethaniah, and no one will know it. Why should he take your life and cause all the Jews who are gathered around you to be scattered and the remnant of Judah to perish?"
40:16
亚希甘的儿子基大利对加利亚的儿子约哈难说,你不可行这事,你所论以实玛利的话是假的。
But Gedaliah son of Ahikam said to Johanan son of Kareah, "Don't do such a thing! What you are saying about Ishmael is not true."
