旧约 阿摩司书 第5章

第1段

以色列家阿,要听我为你们所作的哀歌。
Hear ye this word which I take up against you, even a lamentation, O house of Israel.

第2段

以色列民(原文是处女)跌倒,不得再起,躺在地上,无人搀扶。
The virgin of Israel is fallen; she shall no more rise: she is forsaken upon her land; there is none to raise her up.

第3段

主耶和华如此说,以色列家的城,发出一千兵的,只剩一百,发出一百的,只剩十个。
For thus saith the Lord GOD; The city that went out by a thousand shall leave an hundred, and that which went forth by an hundred shall leave ten, to the house of Israel.

第4段

耶和华向以色列家如此说,你们要寻求我,就必存活。
For thus saith the LORD unto the house of Israel, Seek ye me, and ye shall live:

第5段

不要往伯特利寻求,不要进入吉甲,不要过到别是巴。因为吉甲必被掳掠,伯特利也必归于无有。
But seek not Bethel, nor enter into Gilgal, and pass not to Beersheba: for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity, and Bethel shall come to nought.

第6段

要寻求耶和华,就必存活。免得他在约瑟家像火发出,在伯特利焚烧,无人扑灭。
Seek the LORD, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Bethel.

第7段

你们这使公平变为茵??,将公义丢弃于地的,
Ye who turn judgment to wormwood, and leave off righteousness in the earth,

第8段

要寻求那造昴星和叁星,使死荫变为晨光,使白日变为黑夜,命海水来浇在地上的,(耶和华是他的名)
Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name:

第9段

他使力强的忽遭灭亡,以致保障遭遇毁坏。
That strengtheneth the spoiled against the strong, so that the spoiled shall come against the fortress.

第10段

你们怨恨那在城门口责备人的,憎恶那说正直话的。
They hate him that rebuketh in the gate, and they abhor him that speaketh uprightly.

第11段

你们践踏贫民,向他们勒索麦子。你们用凿过的石头建造房屋,却不得住在其内,栽种美好的葡萄园,却不得喝所出的酒。
Forasmuch therefore as your treading is upon the poor, and ye take from him burdens of wheat: ye have built houses of hewn stone, but ye shall not dwell in them; ye have planted pleasant vineyards, but ye shall not drink wine of them.

第12段

我知道你们的罪过何等多,你们的罪恶何等大。你们苦待义人,收受贿赂,在城门口屈枉穷乏人。
For I know your manifold transgressions and your mighty sins: they afflict the just, they take a bribe, and they turn aside the poor in the gate from their right.

第13段

所以通达人见这样的时势,必静默不言。因为时势真恶。
Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time.

第14段

你们要求善,不要求恶,就必存活。这样,耶和华万军之神,必照你们所说的,与你们同在。
Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken.

第15段

要恶恶好善,在城门口秉公行义。或者耶和华万军之神,向约瑟的馀民施恩。
Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.

第16段

主耶和华万军之神如此说,在一切宽阔处必有哀号的声音。在各街市上必有人说,哀哉,哀哉。又必叫农夫来哭号,叫善唱哀歌的来举哀。
Therefore the LORD, the God of hosts, the LORD, saith thus; Wailing shall be in all streets; and they shall say in all the highways, Alas! alas! and they shall call the husbandman to mourning, and such as are skilful of lamentation to wailing.

第17段

在各葡萄园,必有哀号的声音。因为我必从你中间经过。这是耶和华说的。
And in all vineyards shall be wailing: for I will pass through thee, saith the LORD.

第18段

想望耶和华日子来到的有祸了。你们为何想望耶和华的日子呢。那日黑暗没有光明,
Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.

第19段

景况好像人躲避狮子又遇见熊。或是进房屋以手靠墙,就被蛇咬。
As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.

第20段

耶和华的日子,不是黑暗没有光明吗。不是幽暗毫无光辉吗。
Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?

第21段

我厌恶你们的节期,也不喜悦你们的严肃会。
I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.

第22段

你们虽然向我献燔祭,和素祭,我却不悦纳。也不顾你们用肥畜献的平安祭。
Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.

第23段

要使你们歌唱的声音远离我。因为我不听你们弹琴的响声。
Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.

第24段

惟愿公平如大水滚滚,使公义如江河滔滔。
But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.

第25段

以色列家阿,你们在旷野四十年,岂是将祭物和供物献给我呢。
Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?

第26段

你们抬着为自己所造之摩洛的帐幕,和偶像的龛,并你们的神星。
But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.

第27段

所以我要把你们掳到大马士革以外。这是耶和华,名为万军之神说的。
Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the LORD, whose name is The God of hosts.
