阿摩司書 Amos


Chapter Verses < 前一章 目录 下一章 >
7:1
主耶和华指示我一件事。为王割菜之后(菜或作草),菜又发生,刚发生的时候,主造蝗虫。
This is what the Sovereign Lord showed me: He was preparing swarms of locusts after the king's share had been harvested and just as the second crop was coming up.
7:2
蝗虫吃尽那地的青物,我就说,主耶和华阿,求你赦免。因为雅各微弱,他怎能站立得住呢?
When they had stripped the land clean, I cried out, "Sovereign Lord , forgive! How can Jacob survive? He is so small!"
7:3
耶和华就后悔说,这灾可以免了。
So the Lord relented. "This will not happen," the Lord said.
7:4
主耶和华又指示我一件事。他命火来惩罚以色列,火就吞灭深渊,险些将地烧灭。
This is what the Sovereign Lord showed me: The Sovereign Lord was calling for judgment by fire; it dried up the great deep and devoured the land.
7:5
我就说,主耶和华阿,求你止息。因为雅各微弱。他怎能站立得住呢?
Then I cried out, "Sovereign Lord , I beg you, stop! How can Jacob survive? He is so small!"
7:6
耶和华就后悔说,这灾也可免了。
So the Lord relented. "This will not happen either," the Sovereign Lord said.
7:7
他又指示我一件事。有一道墙是按准绳建筑的,主手拿准绳站在其上。
This is what he showed me: The Lord was standing by a wall that had been built true to plumb, with a plumb line in his hand.
7:8
耶和华对我说,阿摩司阿,你看见什么。我说,看见准绳。主说,我要吊起准绳在我民以色列中。我必不再宽恕他们。
And the Lord asked me, "What do you see, Amos?" "A plumb line," I replied. Then the Lord said, "Look, I am setting a plumb line among my people Israel; I will spare them no longer.
7:9
以撒的丘坛必然凄凉,以色列的圣所必然荒废。我必兴起,用刀攻击耶罗波安的家。
The high places of Isaac will be destroyed and the sanctuaries of Israel will be ruined; with my sword I will rise against the house of Jeroboam.
7:10
伯特利的祭司亚玛谢打发人,到以色列王耶罗波安那里,说,阿摩司在以色列家中图谋背叛你。他所说的一切话,这国担当不起。
Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent a message to Jeroboam king of Israel: "Amos is raising a conspiracy against you in the very heart of Israel. The land cannot bear all his words.
7:11
因为阿摩司如此说,耶罗波安必被刀杀,以色列民定被掳去离开本地。
For this is what Amos is saying: " 'Jeroboam will die by the sword, and Israel will surely go into exile, away from their native land.' "
7:12
亚玛谢又对阿摩司说,你这先见哪,要逃往犹大地去,在那里糊口,在那里说预言。
Then Amaziah said to Amos, "Get out, you seer! Go back to the land of Judah. Earn your bread there and do your prophesying there.
7:13
却不要在伯特利再说预言,因为这里有王的圣所,有王的宫殿。
Don't prophesy anymore at Bethel, because this is the king's sanctuary and the temple of the kingdom."
7:14
阿摩司对亚玛谢说,我原不是先知,也不是先知的门徒(原文作儿子)。我是牧人,又是修理桑树的。
Amos answered Amaziah, "I was neither a prophet nor a prophet's son, but I was a shepherd, and I also took care of sycamore-fig trees.
7:15
耶和华选召我,使我不跟从羊群,对我说,你去向我民以色列说预言。
But the Lord took me from tending the flock and said to me, 'Go, prophesy to my people Israel.'
7:16
亚玛谢阿,现在你要听耶和华的话。你说,不要向以色列说预言,也不要向以撒家滴下预言。
Now then, hear the word of the Lord . You say, " 'Do not prophesy against Israel, and stop preaching against the house of Isaac.'
7:17
所以耶和华如此说,你的妻子必在城中作妓女,你的儿女必倒在刀下,你的地必有人用绳子量了分取,你自己必死在污秽之地,以色列民定被掳去离开本地。
Therefore this is what the Lord says: 'Your wife will become a prostitute in the city, and your sons and daughters will fall by the sword. Your land will be measured and divided up, and you yourself will die in a pagan country. And Israel will certainly go into exile, away from their native land.' "
