以西結書 Ezekiel


Chapter Verses < 前一章 目录 下一章 >
17:1
耶和华的话临到我说,
The word of the LORD came to me:
17:2
人子阿,你要向以色列家出谜语,设比喻,
Son of man, set forth an allegory and tell the house of Israel a parable.
17:3
说主耶和华如此说,有一大鹰,翅膀大,翎毛长,羽毛丰满,彩色俱备,来到利巴嫩,将香柏树梢拧去,
Say to them, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: A great eagle with powerful wings, long feathers and full plumage of varied colors came to Lebanon. Taking hold of the top of a cedar,
17:4
就是折去香柏树尽尖的嫩枝,叼到贸易之地,放在买卖城中。
he broke off its topmost shoot and carried it away to a land of merchants, where he planted it in a city of traders.
17:5
又将以色列地的枝子栽于肥田里,插在大水旁,如插柳树,
'He took some of the seed of your land and put it in fertile soil. He planted it like a willow by abundant water,
17:6
就渐渐生长,成为蔓延矮小的葡萄树。其枝转向那鹰,其根在鹰以下,于是成了葡萄树,生出枝子,发出小枝。
and it sprouted and became a low, spreading vine. Its branches turned toward him, but its roots remained under it. So it became a vine and produced branches and put out leafy boughs.
17:7
又有一大鹰,翅膀大,羽毛多。这葡萄树从栽种的畦中向这鹰弯过根来,发出枝子,好得它的浇灌。
'But there was another great eagle with powerful wings and full plumage. The vine now sent out its roots toward him from the plot where it was planted and stretched out its branches to him for water.
17:8
这树栽于肥田多水的旁边,好生枝子,结果子,成为佳美的葡萄树。
It had been planted in good soil by abundant water so that it would produce branches, bear fruit and become a splendid vine.'
17:9
你要说,主耶和华如此说,这葡萄树岂能发旺呢?鹰岂不拔出它的根来,芟除它的果子,使它枯干,使它发的嫩叶都枯干了吗?也不用大力和多民,就拔出它的根来。
Say to them, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Will it thrive? Will it not be uprooted and stripped of its fruit so that it withers? All its new growth will wither. It will not take a strong arm or many people to pull it up by the roots.
17:10
葡萄树虽然栽种,岂能发旺呢?一经东风,岂不全然枯干吗?必在生长的畦中枯干了。
Even if it is transplanted, will it thrive? Will it not wither completely when the east wind strikes it-wither away in the plot where it grew?' "
17:11
耶和华的话临到我说,
Then the word of the LORD came to me:
17:12
你对那悖逆之家说,你们不知道这些事是什么意思吗?你要告诉他们说,巴比伦王曾到耶路撒冷,将其中的君王和首领带到巴比伦自己那里去。
Say to this rebellious house, 'Do you not know what these things mean?' Say to them: 'The king of Babylon went to Jerusalem and carried off her king and her nobles, bringing them back with him to Babylon.
17:13
从以色列的宗室中取一人与他立约,使他发誓,并将国中有势力的人掳去,
Then he took a member of the royal family and made a treaty with him, putting him under oath. He also carried away the leading men of the land,
17:14
使国低微不能自强,惟因守盟约得以存立。
so that the kingdom would be brought low, unable to rise again, surviving only by keeping his treaty.
17:15
他却背叛巴比伦王,打发使者往埃及去,要他们给他马匹和多民。他岂能亨通呢?行这样事的人岂能逃脱呢?他背约岂能逃脱呢?
But the king rebelled against him by sending his envoys to Egypt to get horses and a large army. Will he succeed? Will he who does such things escape? Will he break the treaty and yet escape?
17:16
他轻看向王所起的誓,背弃王与他所立的约。主耶和华说,我指着我的永生起誓,他定要死在立他作王,巴比伦王的京都。
'As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD , he shall die in Babylon, in the land of the king who put him on the throne, whose oath he despised and whose treaty he broke.
17:17
敌人筑垒造台,与他打仗的时候,为要剪除多人,法老虽领大军队和大群众,还是不能帮助他。
Pharaoh with his mighty army and great horde will be of no help to him in war, when ramps are built and siege works erected to destroy many lives.
17:18
他轻看誓言,背弃盟约,已经投降,却又作这一切的事,他必不能逃脱。
He despised the oath by breaking the covenant. Because he had given his hand in pledge and yet did all these things, he shall not escape.
17:19
所以主耶和华如此说,我指着我的永生起誓,他既轻看指我所起的誓,背弃指我所立的约,我必要使这罪归在他头上。
'Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: As surely as I live, I will bring down on his head my oath that he despised and my covenant that he broke.
17:20
我必将我的网撒在他身上,他必在我的网罗中缠住。我必带他到巴比伦,并要在那里因他干犯我的罪刑罚他。
I will spread my net for him, and he will be caught in my snare. I will bring him to Babylon and execute judgment upon him there because he was unfaithful to me.
17:21
他的一切军队,凡逃跑的,都必倒在刀下。所剩下的,也必分散四方(方原文作风)。你们就知道说这话的是我耶和华。
All his fleeing troops will fall by the sword, and the survivors will be scattered to the winds. Then you will know that I the LORD have spoken.
17:22
主耶和华如此说,我要将香柏树梢拧去栽上,就是从尽尖的嫩枝中折一嫩枝,栽于极高的山上。
'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I myself will take a shoot from the very top of a cedar and plant it; I will break off a tender sprig from its topmost shoots and plant it on a high and lofty mountain.
17:23
在以色列高处的山栽上。它就生枝子,结果子,成为佳美的香柏树,各类飞鸟都必宿在其下,就是宿在枝子的荫下。
On the mountain heights of Israel I will plant it; it will produce branches and bear fruit and become a splendid cedar. Birds of every kind will nest in it; they will find shelter in the shade of its branches.
17:24
田野的树木都必知道我耶和华使高树矮小,矮树高大。青树枯干,枯树发旺。我耶和华如此说,也如此行了。
All the trees of the field will know that I the LORD bring down the tall tree and make the low tree grow tall. I dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish. " 'I the LORD have spoken, and I will do it.' "
