旧约 何西阿书 第7章

第1段

我想医治以色列的时候,以法莲的罪孽,和撒玛利亚的罪恶,就显露出来。他们行事虚谎,内有贼人入室偷窃,外有强盗成群骚扰。
When I would have healed Israel, then the iniquity of Ephraim was discovered, and the wickedness of Samaria: for they commit falsehood; and the thief cometh in, and the troop of robbers spoileth without.

第2段

他们心里并不思想我记念他们的一切恶,他们所行的现在缠绕他们,都在我面前。
And they consider not in their hearts that I remember all their wickedness: now their own doings have beset them about; they are before my face.

第3段

他们行恶使君王欢喜,说谎使首领喜乐。
They make the king glad with their wickedness, and the princes with their lies.

第4段

他们都是行淫的,像火炉被烤饼的烧热,从抟面到发面的时候,暂不使火着旺。
They are all adulterers, as an oven heated by the baker, who ceaseth from raising after he hath kneaded the dough, until it be leavened.

第5段

在我们王宴乐的日子,首领因酒的烈性成病。王与亵慢人拉手。
In the day of our king the princes have made him sick with bottles of wine; he stretched out his hand with scorners.

第6段

首领埋伏的时候,心中热如火炉,就如烤饼的整夜睡卧,到了早晨火气炎炎。
For they have made ready their heart like an oven, whiles they lie in wait: their baker sleepeth all the night; in the morning it burneth as a flaming fire.

第7段

众民也热如火炉,烧灭他们的官长。他们的君王都仆倒而死。他们中间无一人求告我。
They are all hot as an oven, and have devoured their judges; all their kings are fallen: there is none among them that calleth unto me.

第8段

以法莲与列邦人搀杂。以法莲是没有翻过的饼。
Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned.

第9段

外邦人吞吃他劳力得来的,他却不知道,头发斑白,他也不觉得。
Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth it not: yea, gray hairs are here and there upon him, yet he knoweth not.

第10段

以色列的骄傲当面见证自己,虽遭遇这一切,他们仍不归向耶和华他们的神,也不寻求他。
And the pride of Israel testifieth to his face: and they do not return to the LORD their God, nor seek him for all this.

第11段

以法莲好像鸽子愚蠢无知。他们求告埃及,投奔亚述。
Ephraim also is like a silly dove without heart: they call to Egypt, they go to Assyria.

第12段

他们去的时候,我必将我的网撒在他们身上,我要打下他们,如同空中的鸟。我必按他们会众所听见的惩罚他们。
When they shall go, I will spread my net upon them; I will bring them down as the fowls of the heaven; I will chastise them, as their congregation hath heard.

第13段

他们因离弃我,必定有祸,因违背我,必被毁灭。我虽要救赎他们,他们却向我说谎。
Woe unto them! for they have fled from me: destruction unto them! because they have transgressed against me: though I have redeemed them, yet they have spoken lies against me.

第14段

他们并不诚心哀求我,乃在床上呼号。他们为求五谷新酒聚集,仍然悖逆我。
And they have not cried unto me with their heart, when they howled upon their beds: they assemble themselves for corn and wine, and they rebel against me.

第15段

我虽教导他们,坚固他们的膀臂,他们竟图谋抗拒我。
Though I have bound and strengthened their arms, yet do they imagine mischief against me.

第16段

他们归向,却不归向至上者。他们如同翻背的弓。他们的首领必因舌头的狂傲倒在刀下,这在埃及地必作人的讥笑。
They return, but not to the most High: they are like a deceitful bow: their princes shall fall by the sword for the rage of their tongue: this shall be their derision in the land of Egypt.
