耶利米書 Jeremiah


Chapter Verses < 前一章 目录 下一章 >
44:1
有临到耶利米的话,论及一切住在埃及地的犹大人,就是住在密夺,答比匿,挪弗,巴忒罗境内的犹大人,说,
This word came to Jeremiah concerning all the Jews living in Lower Egypt-in Migdol, Tahpanhes and Memphis -and in Upper Egypt :
44:2
万军之耶和华以色列的神如此说,我所降与耶路撒冷和犹大各城的一切灾祸你们都看见了。那些城邑今日荒凉,无人居住。
This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: You saw the great disaster I brought on Jerusalem and on all the towns of Judah. Today they lie deserted and in ruins
44:3
这是因居民所行的恶,去烧香事奉别神,就是他们和你们,并你们列祖所不认识的神,惹我发怒。
because of the evil they have done. They provoked me to anger by burning incense and by worshiping other gods that neither they nor you nor your fathers ever knew.
44:4
我从早起来差遣我的仆人众先知去说,你们切不要行我所厌恶这可憎之事。
Again and again I sent my servants the prophets, who said, 'Do not do this detestable thing that I hate!'
44:5
他们却不听从,不侧耳而听,不转离恶事,仍向别神烧香。
But they did not listen or pay attention; they did not turn from their wickedness or stop burning incense to other gods.
44:6
因此,我的怒气和忿怒都倒出来,在犹大城邑中和耶路撒冷的街市上,如火着起,以致都荒废凄凉,正如今日一样。
Therefore, my fierce anger was poured out; it raged against the towns of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem and made them the desolate ruins they are today.
44:7
现在耶和华万军之神,以色列的神如此说,你们为何作这大恶自害己命,使你们的男人,妇女,婴孩,和吃奶的都从犹大中剪除,不留一人呢?
Now this is what the Lord God Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Why bring such great disaster on yourselves by cutting off from Judah the men and women, the children and infants, and so leave yourselves without a remnant?
44:8
就是因你们手所作的,在所去寄居的埃及地向别神烧香惹我发怒,使你们被剪除,在天下万国中令人咒诅羞辱。
Why provoke me to anger with what your hands have made, burning incense to other gods in Egypt, where you have come to live? You will destroy yourselves and make yourselves an object of cursing and reproach among all the nations on earth.
44:9
你们列祖的恶行,犹大列王和他们后妃的恶行,你们自己和你们妻子的恶行,就是在犹大地,耶路撒冷街上所行的,你们都忘了吗?
Have you forgotten the wickedness committed by your fathers and by the kings and queens of Judah and the wickedness committed by you and your wives in the land of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem?
44:10
到如今还没有懊悔,没有惧怕,没有遵行我在你们和你们列祖面前所设立的法度律例。
To this day they have not humbled themselves or shown reverence, nor have they followed my law and the decrees I set before you and your fathers.
44:11
所以万军之耶和华以色列的神如此说,我必向你们变脸降灾,以致剪除犹大众人。
Therefore, this is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: I am determined to bring disaster on you and to destroy all Judah.
44:12
那定意进入埃及地,在那里寄居的,就是所剩下的犹大人,我必使他们尽都灭绝,必在埃及地仆倒,必因刀剑饥荒灭绝。从最小的到至大的都必遭刀剑饥荒而死,以致令人辱骂,惊骇,咒诅,羞辱。
I will take away the remnant of Judah who were determined to go to Egypt to settle there. They will all perish in Egypt; they will fall by the sword or die from famine. From the least to the greatest, they will die by sword or famine. They will become an object of cursing and horror, of condemnation and reproach.
44:13
我怎样用刀剑,饥荒,瘟疫刑罚耶路撒冷,也必照样刑罚那些住在埃及地的犹大人。
I will punish those who live in Egypt with the sword, famine and plague, as I punished Jerusalem.
44:14
甚至那进入埃及地寄居的,就是所剩下的犹大人,都不得逃脱,也不得存留归回犹大地。他们心中甚想归回居住之地。除了逃脱的以外,一个都不能归回。
None of the remnant of Judah who have gone to live in Egypt will escape or survive to return to the land of Judah, to which they long to return and live; none will return except a few fugitives."
44:15
那些住在埃及地巴忒罗知道自己妻子向别神烧香的,与旁边站立的众妇女,聚集成群,回答耶利米说,
Then all the men who knew that their wives were burning incense to other gods, along with all the women who were present-a large assembly-and all the people living in Lower and Upper Egypt, said to Jeremiah,
44:16
论到你奉耶和华的名向我们所说的话,我们必不听从。
We will not listen to the message you have spoken to us in the name of the Lord !
44:17
我们定要成就我们口中所出的一切话,向天后烧香,浇奠祭,按着我们与我们列祖,君王,首领在犹大的城邑中和耶路撒冷的街市上素常所行的一样。因为那时我们吃饱饭,享福乐,并不见灾祸。
We will certainly do everything we said we would: We will burn incense to the Queen of Heaven and will pour out drink offerings to her just as we and our fathers, our kings and our officials did in the towns of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem. At that time we had plenty of food and were well off and suffered no harm.
44:18
自从我们停止向天后烧香,浇奠祭,我们倒缺乏一切,又因刀剑饥荒灭绝。
But ever since we stopped burning incense to the Queen of Heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her, we have had nothing and have been perishing by sword and famine."
44:19
妇女说,我们向天后烧香,浇奠祭,作天后像的饼供奉她,向她浇奠祭,是外乎我们的丈夫吗?
The women added, "When we burned incense to the Queen of Heaven and poured out drink offerings to her, did not our husbands know that we were making cakes like her image and pouring out drink offerings to her?"
44:20
耶利米对一切那样回答他的男人妇女说,
Then Jeremiah said to all the people, both men and women, who were answering him,
44:21
你们与你们列祖,君王,首领,并国内的百姓,在犹大城邑中和耶路撒冷街市上所烧的香,耶和华岂不记念,心中岂不思想吗?
Did not the Lord remember and think about the incense burned in the towns of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem by you and your fathers, your kings and your officials and the people of the land?
44:22
耶和华因你们所作的恶,所行可憎的事,不能再容忍,所以你们的地荒凉,令人惊骇咒诅,无人居住,正如今日一样。
When the Lord could no longer endure your wicked actions and the detestable things you did, your land became an object of cursing and a desolate waste without inhabitants, as it is today.
44:23
你们烧香,得罪耶和华,没有听从他的话,没有遵行他的律法,条例,法度,所以你们遭遇这灾祸,正如今日一样。
Because you have burned incense and have sinned against the Lord and have not obeyed him or followed his law or his decrees or his stipulations, this disaster has come upon you, as you now see."
44:24
耶利米又对众民和众妇女说,你们在埃及地的一切犹大人当听耶和华的话。
Then Jeremiah said to all the people, including the women, "Hear the word of the Lord , all you people of Judah in Egypt.
44:25
万军之耶和华以色列的神如此说,你们和你们的妻都口中说,手里作,说,我们定要偿还所许的愿,向天后烧香,浇奠祭。现在你们只管坚定所许的愿而偿还吧。
This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: You and your wives have shown by your actions what you promised when you said, 'We will certainly carry out the vows we made to burn incense and pour out drink offerings to the Queen of Heaven.' "Go ahead then, do what you promised! Keep your vows!
44:26
所以你们住在埃及地的一切犹大人当听耶和华的话。耶和华说,我指着我的大名起誓,在埃及全地,我的名不再被犹大一个人的口称呼说,我指着主永生的耶和华起誓。
But hear the word of the Lord , all Jews living in Egypt: 'I swear by my great name,' says the Lord , 'that no one from Judah living anywhere in Egypt will ever again invoke my name or swear, "As surely as the Sovereign Lord lives."
44:27
我向他们留意降祸不降福。在埃及地的一切犹大人必因刀剑,饥荒所灭,直到灭尽。
For I am watching over them for harm, not for good; the Jews in Egypt will perish by sword and famine until they are all destroyed.
44:28
脱离刀剑,从埃及地归回犹大地的人数很少。那进入埃及地要在那里寄居的,就是所剩下的犹大人,必知道是谁的话立得住,是我的话呢?是他们的话呢?
Those who escape the sword and return to the land of Judah from Egypt will be very few. Then the whole remnant of Judah who came to live in Egypt will know whose word will stand-mine or theirs.
44:29
耶和华说,我在这地方刑罚你们,必有预兆,使你们知道我降祸与你们的话必要立得住。
'This will be the sign to you that I will punish you in this place,' declares the Lord , 'so that you will know that my threats of harm against you will surely stand.'
44:30
耶和华如此说,我必将埃及王法老合弗拉交在他仇敌和寻索其命的人手中,像我将犹大王西底家交在他仇敌,和寻索其命的巴比伦王尼布甲尼撒手中一样。
This is what the Lord says: 'I am going to hand Pharaoh Hophra king of Egypt over to his enemies who seek his life, just as I handed Zedekiah king of Judah over to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, the enemy who was seeking his life.' "
