21:1 耶和华的话临到我说,

And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

21:2 人子阿,你要面向耶路撒冷和圣所滴下预言,攻击以色列地。

Son of man, set thy face toward Jerusalem, and drop thy word toward the holy places, and prophesy against the land of Israel,

21:3 对以色列地说,耶和华如此说,我与你为敌,并要拔刀出鞘,从你中间将义人和恶人一并剪除。

And say to the land of Israel, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I am against thee, and will draw forth my sword out of his sheath, and will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked.

21:4 我既要从你中间剪除义人和恶人,所以我的刀要出鞘,自南至北攻击一切有血气的。

Seeing then that I will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked, therefore shall my sword go forth out of his sheath against all flesh from the south to the north:

21:5 一切有血气的就知道我耶和华已经拔刀出鞘,必不再入鞘。

That all flesh may know that I the LORD have drawn forth my sword out of his sheath: it shall not return any more.

21:6 人子阿,你要叹息,在他们眼前弯着腰,苦苦地叹息。

Sigh therefore, thou son of man, with the breaking of thy loins; and with bitterness sigh before their eyes.

21:7 他们问你说,为何叹息呢。你就说,因为有风声,灾祸要来。人心都必消化,手都发软,精神衰败,膝弱如水。看哪,这灾祸临近,必然成就。这是主耶和华说的。

And it shall be, when they say unto thee, Wherefore sighest thou? that thou shalt answer, For the tidings; because it cometh: and every heart shall melt, and all hands shall be feeble, and every spirit shall faint, and all knees shall be weak as water: behold, it cometh, and shall be brought to pass, saith the Lord GOD.

21:8 耶和华的话临到我说,

Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

21:9 人子阿,你要预言。耶和华吩咐我如此说,有刀,有刀,是磨快擦亮的。

Son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus saith the LORD; Say, A sword, a sword is sharpened, and also furbished:

21:10 磨快为要行杀戮,擦亮为要像闪电。我们岂可快乐吗。罚我子的杖藐视各树。

It is sharpened to make a sore slaughter; it is furbished that it may glitter: should we then make mirth? it contemneth the rod of my son, as every tree.

21:11 这刀已经交给人擦亮,为要应手使用。这刀已经磨快擦亮,好交在行杀戮的人手中。

And he hath given it to be furbished, that it may be handled: this sword is sharpened, and it is furbished, to give it into the hand of the slayer.

21:12 人子阿,你要呼喊哀号,因为这刀临到我的百姓和以色列一切的首领。他们和我的百姓都交在刀下,所以你要拍腿叹息。

Cry and howl, son of man: for it shall be upon my people, it shall be upon all the princes of Israel: terrors by reason of the sword shall be upon my people: smite therefore upon thy thigh.

21:13 有试验的事。若那藐视的杖归于无有,怎吗样呢。这是主耶和华说的。

Because it is a trial, and what if the sword contemn even the rod? it shall be no more, saith the Lord GOD.

21:14 人子阿,你要拍掌预言。我耶和华要使这刀,就是致死伤的刀,一连三次加倍刺人,进入他们的内屋,使大人受死伤的就是这刀。

Thou therefore, son of man, prophesy, and smite thine hands together, and let the sword be doubled the third time, the sword of the slain: it is the sword of the great men that are slain, which entereth into their privy chambers.

21:15 我设立这恐吓人的刀,攻击他们的一切城门,使他们的心消化,加增他们跌倒的事。哎。这刀造得像闪电,磨得尖利,要行杀戮。

I have set the point of the sword against all their gates, that their heart may faint, and their ruins be multiplied: ah! it is made bright, it is wrapped up for the slaughter.

21:16 刀阿,你归在右边,摆在左边。你面向哪方,就向那方杀戮。

Go thee one way or other, either on the right hand, or on the left, whithersoever thy face is set.

21:17 我也要拍掌,并要使我的忿怒止息。这是我耶和华说的。

I will also smite mine hands together, and I will cause my fury to rest: I the LORD have said it.

21:18 耶和华的话又临到我说,

The word of the LORD came unto me again, saying,

21:19 人子阿,你要定出两条路,好使巴比伦王的刀来。这两条路必从一地分出来,又要在通城的路口上画出一只手来。

Also, thou son of man, appoint thee two ways, that the sword of the king of Babylon may come: both twain shall come forth out of one land: and choose thou a place, choose it at the head of the way to the city.

21:20 你要定出一条路,使刀来到亚扪人的拉巴。又要定出一条路,使刀来到犹大的坚固城耶路撒冷。

Appoint a way, that the sword may come to Rabbath of the Ammonites, and to Judah in Jerusalem the defenced.

21:21 因为巴比伦王站在岔路那里,在两条路口上要占卜。他摇签(原文作箭)求问神像,察看牺牲的肝。

For the king of Babylon stood at the parting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination: he made his arrows bright, he consulted with images, he looked in the liver.

21:22 在右手中拿着为耶路撒冷占卜的签,使他安设撞城锤,张口叫杀,扬声呐喊,筑垒造台,以撞城锤,攻打城门。

At his right hand was the divination for Jerusalem, to appoint captains, to open the mouth in the slaughter, to lift up the voice with shouting, to appoint battering rams against the gates, to cast a mount, and to build a fort.

21:23 据那些曾起誓的犹大人看来,这是虚假的占卜。但巴比伦王要使他们想起罪孽,以致将他们捉住。

And it shall be unto them as a false divination in their sight, to them that have sworn oaths: but he will call to remembrance the iniquity, that they may be taken.

21:24 主耶和华如此说,因你们的过犯显露,使你们的罪孽被记念,以致你们的罪恶在行为上都彰显出来。又因你们被记念,就被捉住。

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have made your iniquity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are discovered, so that in all your doings your sins do appear; because, I say, that ye are come to remembrance, ye shall be taken with the hand.

21:25 你这受死伤行恶的以色列王阿,罪孽的尽头到了,受报的日子已到。

And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end,

21:26 主耶和华如此说,当除掉冠,摘下冕,景况必不再像先前。要使卑蛇升为高,使高者降为卑。

Thus saith the Lord GOD; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high.

21:27 我要将这国倾覆,倾覆,而又倾覆。这国也必不再有,直等到那应得的人来到,我就赐给他。

I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him.

21:28 人子阿,要发预言说,主耶和华论到亚扪人和他们的凌辱,吩咐我如此说,有刀,有拔出来的刀,已经擦亮,为行杀戮,使他像闪电以行吞灭。

And thou, son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD concerning the Ammonites, and concerning their reproach; even say thou, The sword, the sword is drawn: for the slaughter it is furbished, to consume because of the glittering:

21:29 人为你见虚假的异象,行谎诈的占卜,使你倒在受死伤之恶人的颈项上。他们罪孽到了尽头,受报的日子已到。

Whiles they see vanity unto thee, whiles they divine a lie unto thee, to bring thee upon the necks of them that are slain, of the wicked, whose day is come, when their iniquity shall have an end.

21:30 你将刀收入鞘吧。在你受造之处,生长之地,我必刑罚你。

Shall I cause it to return into his sheath? I will judge thee in the place where thou wast created, in the land of thy nativity.

21:31 我必将我的恼恨倒在你身上,将我烈怒的火喷在你身上。又将你交在善于杀灭的畜类人手中。

And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee, I will blow against thee in the fire of my wrath, and deliver thee into the hand of brutish men, and skilful to destroy.

21:32 你必当柴被火焚烧,你的血必流在国中,你必不再被记念,因为这是我耶和华说的。

Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more remembered: for I the LORD have spoken it.

以西结书21参考

神的审判犹如刀剑,出鞘后必要砍下……
21章 20章45至48节简短的信息介绍的是前三个要临到耶路撒冷的审判信息:(1)主的剑(21:1-7);(2)开了刃的剑(21:8-17);(3)尼布甲尼撒的剑(21:18-22)。城市因受到玷污而要遭毁灭。根据犹太人的律法,被污秽的物体要经火或水才得洁净(参民31:22-23;诗66:10-12;箴17:3)。神的审判是为洁净而设的,拆毁通常是这一过程中的必要部分。

21:12 捶胸是悲哀的表示。

犹大与亚扪联盟反抗巴比伦,结果如何?
21:18-23 在犹大王西底家反抗巴比伦的时候,显然亚扪也在反抗巴比伦。公元前589年,犹大国和亚扪都在谋反巴比伦(参耶27:3)。被掳到巴比伦的犹大人听到这消息再次燃起返回家园的希望。而以西结说,巴比伦王一定会发兵前往那些地区平息叛乱。他会从北边出发,在两条路的岔路口上停下来,一条路通往亚扪的首都拉巴,另一条路通向犹大的首都耶路撒冷。巴比伦王要决定去毁灭哪一座城市。事实上尼布甲尼撒王果真像以西结预言的那样开赴并攻占了耶路撒冷。

巴比伦王真的如先知预言的那样求问前路吗?
21:21 尼布甲尼撒用三种方式求问将来。一个是摇箭,类似抽签,摇出来看怎么做最好。第二种是向偶像询求,看是否有灵可以引导他。第三种是让祭司查看献祭用的动物的肝,看其形状和尺寸是否指示出该作出哪一项决定。

以色列人与亚扪人结盟,是否为正确的抉择?
21:28 亚扪人和以色列人经常打仗。神告诉以色列人不要与外国结盟。但公元前589年犹大同亚扪结盟反抗巴比伦(参耶27:3)。神在尼布甲尼撒去耶路撒冷的时候,首先审判了犹大(21:22),其后亚扪也遭到了审判。倒不是因为它同犹大的联盟,而是因为他们对耶路撒冷遭毁灭袖手旁观,幸灾乐祸。
