何西阿書 Hosea


Chapter Verses
11:1
以色列年幼的时候,我爱他,就从埃及召出我的儿子来。
When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son.
11:2
先知越发招呼他们,他们越发走开,向诸巴力献祭,给雕刻的偶像烧香。
But the more I called Israel, the further they went from me. They sacrificed to the Baals and they burned incense to images.
11:3
我原教导以法莲行走,用膀臂抱着他们,他们却不知道是我医治他们。
It was I who taught Ephraim to walk, taking them by the arms; but they did not realize it was I who healed them.
11:4
我用慈绳(慈原文是人的)爱索牵引他们,我待他们如人放松牛的两腮夹板,把粮食放在他们面前。
I led them with cords of human kindness, with ties of love; I lifted the yoke from their neck and bent down to feed them.
11:5
他们必不归回埃及地,亚述人却要作他们的王,因他们不肯归向我。
Will they not return to Egypt and will not Assyria rule over them because they refuse to repent?
11:6
刀剑必临到他们的城邑,毁坏门闩,把人吞灭,都因他们随从自己的计谋。
Swords will flash in their cities, will destroy the bars of their gates and put an end to their plans.
11:7
我的民偏要背道离开我,众先知虽然招呼他们归向至上的主,却无人尊崇主。
My people are determined to turn from me. Even if they call to the Most High, he will by no means exalt them.
11:8
以法莲哪,我怎能舍弃你,以色列阿,我怎能弃绝你,我怎能使你如押玛,怎能使你如洗扁,我回心转意,我的怜爱大大发动。
How can I give you up, Ephraim? How can I hand you over, Israel? How can I treat you like Admah? How can I make you like Zeboiim? My heart is changed within me; all my compassion is aroused.
11:9
我必不发猛烈的怒气,也不再毁灭以法莲,因我是神,并非世人,是你们中间的圣者,我必不在怒中临到你们。
I will not carry out my fierce anger, nor will I turn and devastate Ephraim. For I am God, and not man-the Holy One among you. I will not come in wrath.
11:10
耶和华必如狮子吼叫,子民必跟随他。他一吼叫,他们就从西方急速而来。
They will follow the Lord ; he will roar like a lion. When he roars, his children will come trembling from the west.
11:11
他们必如雀鸟从埃及急速而来,又如鸽子从亚述地来到,我必使他们住自己的房屋。这是耶和华说的。
They will come trembling like birds from Egypt, like doves from Assyria. I will settle them in their homes," declares the Lord .
11:12
以法莲用谎话,以色列家用诡计围绕我,犹大却靠神掌权,向圣者有忠心。(或作犹大向神,向诚实的圣者犹疑不定)。
Ephraim has surrounded me with lies, the house of Israel with deceit. And Judah is unruly against God, even against the faithful Holy One.
