旧约 耶利米哀歌 第2章

第1段

主何竟发怒,使黑云遮蔽锡安城。他将以色列的华美从天扔在地上。在他发怒的日子并不记念自己的脚凳。
How hath the LORD covered the daughter of Zion with a cloud in his anger, and cast down from heaven unto the earth the beauty of Israel, and remembered not his footstool in the day of his anger!

第2段

主吞灭雅各一切的住处,并不顾惜。他发怒倾覆犹大民的保障,使这保障坍倒在地。他辱没这国和其中的首领。
The LORD hath swallowed up all the habitations of Jacob, and hath not pitied: he hath thrown down in his wrath the strong holds of the daughter of Judah; he hath brought them down to the ground: he hath polluted the kingdom and the princes thereof.

第3段

他发烈怒,把以色列的角全然砍断,在仇敌面前收回右手。他像火焰四围吞灭,将雅各烧毁。
He hath cut off in his fierce anger all the horn of Israel: he hath drawn back his right hand from before the enemy, and he burned against Jacob like a flaming fire, which devoureth round about.

第4段

他张弓好像仇敌。他站着举起右手,如同敌人将悦人眼目的,尽行杀戮。在锡安百姓的帐棚上倒出他的忿怒,像火一样。
He hath bent his bow like an enemy: he stood with his right hand as an adversary, and slew all that were pleasant to the eye in the tabernacle of the daughter of Zion: he poured out his fury like fire.

第5段

主如仇敌吞灭以色列和锡安的一切宫殿,拆毁百姓的保障。在犹大民中加增悲伤哭号。
The LORD was as an enemy: he hath swallowed up Israel, he hath swallowed up all her palaces: he hath destroyed his strong holds, and hath increased in the daughter of Judah mourning and lamentation.

第6段

他强取自己的帐幕,好像是园中的窝棚,毁坏他的聚会之处。耶和华使圣节和安息日在锡安都被忘记,又在怒气的愤恨中藐视君王和祭司。
And he hath violently taken away his tabernacle, as if it were of a garden: he hath destroyed his places of the assembly: the LORD hath caused the solemn feasts and sabbaths to be forgotten in Zion, and hath despised in the indignation of his anger the king and the priest.

第7段

耶和华丢弃自己的祭坛,憎恶自己的圣所,将宫殿的墙垣交付仇敌。他们在耶和华的殿中喧囔,像在圣会之日一样。
The LORD hath cast off his altar, he hath abhorred his sanctuary, he hath given up into the hand of the enemy the walls of her palaces; they have made a noise in the house of the LORD, as in the day of a solemn feast.

第8段

耶和华定意拆毁锡安的城墙。他拉了准绳,不将手收回,定要毁灭。他使外郭和城墙都悲哀,一同衰败。
The LORD hath purposed to destroy the wall of the daughter of Zion: he hath stretched out a line, he hath not withdrawn his hand from destroying: therefore he made the rampart and the wall to lament; they languished together.

第9段

锡安的门都陷入地内。主将她的门闩毁坏,折断。她的君王和首领落在没有律法的列国中。她的先知不得见耶和华的异象。
Her gates are sunk into the ground; he hath destroyed and broken her bars: her king and her princes are among the Gentiles: the law is no more; her prophets also find no vision from the LORD.

第10段

锡安城的长老坐在地上默默无声。他们扬起尘土落在头上,腰束麻布。耶路撒冷的处女垂头至地。
The elders of the daughter of Zion sit upon the ground, and keep silence: they have cast up dust upon their heads; they have girded themselves with sackcloth: the virgins of Jerusalem hang down their heads to the ground.

第11段

我眼中流泪,以致失明,我的心肠扰乱,肝胆涂地,都因我众民遭毁灭,又因孩童和吃奶的在城内街上发昏。
Mine eyes do fail with tears, my bowels are troubled, my liver is poured upon the earth, for the destruction of the daughter of my people; because the children and the sucklings swoon in the streets of the city.

第12段

那时,他们在城内街上发昏,好像受伤的,在母亲的怀里,将要丧命。对母亲说,谷酒在哪里呢。
They say to their mothers, Where is corn and wine? when they swooned as the wounded in the streets of the city, when their soul was poured out into their mothers' bosom.

第13段

耶路撒冷的民哪,我可用什么向你证明呢。我可用什么与你相比呢。锡安的民哪,我可拿什么和你比较,好安慰你呢。因为你的裂口大如海,谁能医治你呢。
What thing shall I take to witness for thee? what thing shall I liken to thee, O daughter of Jerusalem? what shall I equal to thee, that I may comfort thee, O virgin daughter of Zion? for thy breach is great like the sea: who can heal thee?

第14段

你的先知为你见虚假和愚昧的异象,并没有显露你的罪孽,使你被掳的归回。却为你见虚假的默示和使你被赶出本境的缘故。
Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things for thee: and they have not discovered thine iniquity, to turn away thy captivity; but have seen for thee false burdens and causes of banishment.

第15段

凡过路的都向你拍掌。他们向耶路撒冷城嗤笑,摇头,说,难道人所称为全美的,称为全地所喜悦的,就是这城吗。
All that pass by clap their hands at thee; they hiss and wag their head at the daughter of Jerusalem, saying, Is this the city that men call The perfection of beauty, The joy of the whole earth?

第16段

你的仇敌都向你大大张口。他们嗤笑,又切齿说,我们吞灭她。这真是我们所盼望的日子临到了。我们亲眼看见了。
All thine enemies have opened their mouth against thee: they hiss and gnash the teeth: they say, We have swallowed her up: certainly this is the day that we looked for; we have found, we have seen it.

第17段

耶和华成就了他所定的,应验了他古时所命定的。他倾覆了,并不顾惜,使你的仇敌向你夸耀。使你敌人的角也被高举。
The LORD hath done that which he had devised; he hath fulfilled his word that he had commanded in the days of old: he hath thrown down, and hath not pitied: and he hath caused thine enemy to rejoice over thee, he hath set up the horn of thine adversaries.

第18段

锡安民的心哀求主。锡安的城墙阿,愿你流泪如河,昼夜不息。愿你眼中的瞳人泪流不止。
Their heart cried unto the LORD, O wall of the daughter of Zion, let tears run down like a river day and night: give thyself no rest; let not the apple of thine eye cease.

第19段

夜间,每逢交更的时候要起来呼喊,在主面前倾心如水。你的孩童在各市口上受饿发昏。你要为他们的性命向主举手祷告。
Arise, cry out in the night: in the beginning of the watches pour out thine heart like water before the face of the LORD: lift up thy hands toward him for the life of thy young children, that faint for hunger in the top of every street.

第20段

耶和华阿,求你观看。见你向谁这样行。妇人岂可吃自己所生育手里所摇弄的婴孩吗。祭司和先知岂可在主的圣所中被杀戮吗。
Behold, O LORD, and consider to whom thou hast done this. Shall the women eat their fruit, and children of a span long? shall the priest and the prophet be slain in the sanctuary of the Lord?

第21段

少年人和老年人都在街上躺卧。我的处女和壮丁都倒在刀下。你发怒的日子杀死他们。你杀了,并不顾惜。
The young and the old lie on the ground in the streets: my virgins and my young men are fallen by the sword; thou hast slain them in the day of thine anger; thou hast killed, and not pitied.

第22段

你招聚四围惊吓我的,像在大会的日子招聚人一样。耶和华发怒的日子,无人逃脱,无人存留。我所摇弄所养育的婴孩,仇敌都杀净了。
Thou hast called as in a solemn day my terrors round about, so that in the day of the LORD's anger none escaped nor remained: those that I have swaddled and brought up hath mine enemy consumed.
