Chapter Verses < 前一章 目录 下一章 >
2:1
众祭司阿,这诫命是传给你们的。
And now this admonition is for you, O priests.
2:2
万军之耶和华说,你们若不听从,也不放在心上,将荣耀归与我的名,我就使咒诅临到你们,使你们的福分变为咒诅。因你们不把诫命放在心上,我已经咒诅你们了。
If you do not listen, and if you do not set your heart to honor my name," says the Lord Almighty, "I will send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings. Yes, I have already cursed them, because you have not set your heart to honor me.
2:3
我必斥责你们的种子,又把你们牺牲的粪,抹在你们的脸上。你们要与粪一同除掉。
Because of you I will rebuke your descendants ; I will spread on your faces the offal from your festival sacrifices, and you will be carried off with it.
2:4
你们就知道我传这诫命给你们,使我与利未(或作利未人)所立的约,可以常存。这是万军之耶和华说的。
And you will know that I have sent you this admonition so that my covenant with Levi may continue," says the Lord Almighty.
2:5
我曾与他立生命和平安的约。我将这两样赐给他,使他存敬畏的心,他就敬畏我,惧怕我的名。
My covenant was with him, a covenant of life and peace, and I gave them to him; this called for reverence and he revered me and stood in awe of my name.
2:6
真实的律法在他口中,他嘴里没有不义的话。他以平安和正直与我同行,使多人回头离开罪孽。
True instruction was in his mouth and nothing false was found on his lips. He walked with me in peace and uprightness, and turned many from sin.
2:7
祭司的嘴里当存知识,人也当由他口中寻求律法,因为他是万军之耶和华的使者。
For the lips of a priest ought to preserve knowledge, and from his mouth men should seek instruction-because he is the messenger of the Lord Almighty.
2:8
你们却偏离正道,使许多人在律法上跌倒。你们废弃我与利未所立的约。这是万军之耶和华说的。
But you have turned from the way and by your teaching have caused many to stumble; you have violated the covenant with Levi," says the Lord Almighty.
2:9
所以我使你们被众人藐视,看为下贱,因你们不守我的道,竟在律法上瞻徇情面。
So I have caused you to be despised and humiliated before all the people, because you have not followed my ways but have shown partiality in matters of the law.
2:10
我们岂不都是一位父吗?岂不是一位神所造的吗?我们各人怎么以诡诈待弟兄,背弃了神与我们列祖所立的约呢?
Have we not all one Father ? Did not one God create us? Why do we profane the covenant of our fathers by breaking faith with one another?
2:11
犹大人行事诡诈,并且在以色列和耶路撒冷中,行一件可憎的事。因为犹大人亵渎耶和华所喜爱的圣洁(或作圣地),娶事奉外邦神的女子为妻。
Judah has broken faith. A detestable thing has been committed in Israel and in Jerusalem: Judah has desecrated the sanctuary the Lord loves, by marrying the daughter of a foreign god.
2:12
凡行这事的,无论何人(何人原文作叫醒的答应的),就是献供物给万军之耶和华,耶和华也必从雅各的帐棚中剪除他。
As for the man who does this, whoever he may be, may the Lord cut him off from the tents of Jacob -even though he brings offerings to the Lord Almighty.
2:13
你们又行了一件这样的事,使前妻叹息哭泣的眼泪,遮盖耶和华的坛,以致耶和华不再看顾那供物,也不乐意从你们手中收纳。
Another thing you do: You flood the Lord 's altar with tears. You weep and wail because he no longer pays attention to your offerings or accepts them with pleasure from your hands.
2:14
你们还说,这是为什么呢?因耶和华在你和你幼年所娶的妻中间作见证。她虽是你的配偶,又是你盟约的妻,你却以诡诈待她。
You ask, "Why?" It is because the Lord is acting as the witness between you and the wife of your youth, because you have broken faith with her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant.
2:15
虽然神有灵的余力能造多人,他不是单造一人吗?为何只造一人呢?乃是他愿人得虔诚的后裔。所以当谨守你们的心,谁也不可以诡诈待幼年所娶的妻。
Has not the Lord made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth.
2:16
耶和华以色列的神说,休妻的事,和以强暴待妻的人,都是我所恨恶的。所以当谨守你们的心,不可行诡诈。这是万军之耶和华说的。
I hate divorce, says the Lord God of Israel, "and I hate a man's covering himself with violence as well as with his garment," says the Lord Almighty. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith.
2:17
你们用言语烦琐耶和华,你们还说,我们在何事上烦琐他呢?因为你们说,凡行恶的,耶和华眼看为善,并且他喜悦他们。或说,公义的神在哪里呢?
You have wearied the Lord with your words. "How have we wearied him?" you ask. By saying, "All who do evil are good in the eyes of the Lord , and he is pleased with them" or "Where is the God of justice?"
