章:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66

19:1 论埃及的默示。看哪,耶和华乘驾快云,临到埃及。埃及的偶像在他面前山兢。埃及人的心在里面消化。

The burden of Egypt. Behold, the LORD rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.

19:2 我必激动埃及人攻击埃及人,弟兄攻击弟兄,邻舍攻击邻舍,这城攻击那城,这国攻击那国。

And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.

19:3 埃及人的心神,必在里面耗尽。我必败坏他们的谋略。他们必求问偶像,和念咒的,交鬼的,行巫术的。

And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.

19:4 我必将埃及人交在残忍主的手中。强暴王必辖制他们。这是主万军之耶和华说的。

And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts.

19:5 海中的水必绝尽,河也消没乾涸。

And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and dried up.

19:6 江河要变臭,埃及的河水,都必减少枯乾。苇子和芦荻,都必衰残。

And they shall turn the rivers far away; and the brooks of defence shall be emptied and dried up: the reeds and flags shall wither.

19:7 靠尼罗河旁的草田,并沿尼罗河所种的田,都必枯乾,庄稼被风吹去,归于无有。

The paper reeds by the brooks, by the mouth of the brooks, and every thing sown by the brooks, shall wither, be driven away, and be no more.

19:8 打鱼的必哀哭,在尼罗河一切钓鱼的必悲伤,在水上撒网的,必都衰弱。

The fishers also shall mourn, and all they that cast angle into the brooks shall lament, and they that spread nets upon the waters shall languish.

19:9 用梳好的麻造物的,和织白布的,都必羞愧。

Moreover they that work in fine flax, and they that weave networks, shall be confounded.

19:10 国柱必被打碎,所有佣工的,心必愁烦。

And they shall be broken in the purposes thereof, all that make sluices and ponds for fish.

19:11 琐安的首领,极其愚昧,法老大有智慧的谋士,所筹画的,成为愚昧。你们怎敢对法老说,我是智慧人的子孙,我是古王的后裔。

Surely the princes of Zoan are fools, the counsel of the wise counsellors of Pharaoh is become brutish: how say ye unto Pharaoh, I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings?

19:12 你的智慧人在那里呢。万军之耶和华向埃及所定的旨意,他们可以知道,可以告诉你吧。

Where are they? where are thy wise men? and let them tell thee now, and let them know what the LORD of hosts hath purposed upon Egypt.

19:13 琐安的首领,都变为愚昧,挪弗的首领,都受了迷惑。当埃及支派房角石的使埃及人走错了路。

The princes of Zoan are become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived; they have also seduced Egypt, even they that are the stay of the tribes thereof.

19:14 耶和华使乖谬的灵,搀入埃及中间。首领使埃及一切所作的都有差错,好像醉酒之人呕吐的时候,东倒西歪一样。

The LORD hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof: and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit.

19:15 埃及中无论是头与尾,棕枝与芦苇,所作之工,都不成就。

Neither shall there be any work for Egypt, which the head or tail, branch or rush, may do.

19:16 到那日,埃及人必像妇人一样。他们必因万军之耶和华在埃及以上所抡的手,战兢惧怕。

In that day shall Egypt be like unto women: and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the hand of the LORD of hosts, which he shaketh over it.

19:17 犹大地必使埃及惊恐。向谁提起犹大地,谁就惧怕。这是因万军之耶和华向埃及所定得旨意。

And the land of Judah shall be a terror unto Egypt, every one that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of the LORD of hosts, which he hath determined against it.

19:18 当那日埃及地必有五城的人说迦南的方言,又指着万军之耶和华起誓。有一城,必称为灭亡城。

In that day shall five cities in the land of Egypt speak the language of Canaan, and swear to the LORD of hosts; one shall be called, The city of destruction.

19:19 当那日,在埃及地中必有为耶和华筑的一座坛。在埃及的边界上,必有为耶和华立的一根柱。

In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the LORD.

19:20 这都要在埃及地为万军之耶和华作记号和证据。埃及人因为受人的欺压哀求耶和华,他就差遣一位救主,作护卫者,拯救他们。

And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the LORD because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them.

19:21 耶和华必被埃及人所认识。在那日埃及人必认识耶和华,也要献祭物和供物敬拜他,并向耶和华许愿还愿。

And the LORD shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the LORD in that day, and shall do sacrifice and oblation; yea, they shall vow a vow unto the LORD, and perform it.

19:22 耶和华必击打埃及,又击打,又医治,埃及人就归向耶和华。他必应允他们的祷告,医治他们。

And the LORD shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to the LORD, and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them.

19:23 当那日必有从埃及通亚述去的大道。亚述人要进入埃及,埃及人也进入亚述。埃及人要与亚述人一同敬拜耶和华。

In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.

19:24 当那日以色列必与埃及亚述三国一律,使地上的人得福。

In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land:

19:25 因万军之耶和华赐福给他们,说,埃及我的百姓,亚述我手的工作,以色列我的产业,都有福了。

Whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.

以赛亚书19参考

埃及,以色列人挥之不去的梦魇……
19:1 埃及就是神的百姓在那里作了四百年奴隶的国家(参出1章),以色列百姓恨意仍存。正当犹大考虑同埃及联盟抗击亚述之时(参王下18:17),以赛亚警告说不要加入该联盟,因为神会在他所定的时间里毁灭亚述。

虽然以智慧著称,埃及人对神的旨意却一窍不通──
19:11-15 埃及以其智慧著名,但这里的智者和官吏都是愚蠢的,真正的智慧来自神。我们必须向神求智慧来引导我们的决定,否则,我们总是不知所措或误入歧途。现在是否仍有问题困惑著你呢?如果是这样,那就要向神求智慧来处理。

埃及也会敬拜真神?这可能吗?
19:19, 23 埃及在遭受惩罚之后,会离开偶像去敬拜惟一的真神。以赛亚的预言中更令人惊奇的是,以色列的两个主要压迫者──埃及和亚述,将会联合敬拜神。这个预言将在未来基督掌权的那一天实现。

神要差遣的那位拯救者,我们已经认识了──
19:20 当埃及向神求助的时候,神将差派一个救主来拯救他们。我们的救主耶稣基督是为所有求告他的人预备的。我们也可以用祷告来接受他的拯救(参约1:12)。

埃及那样顽梗的国家,都能归向神,其他的国家也……
19:22 埃及将是向主跪拜的外邦国家之一。腓立比书2章10至11节说,万膝当跪拜,万口当颂扬,耶稣基督是主。所以我们不该对亚述和埃及成为“万口”中的一分子而感到惊讶。我们每一个人也都是“万膝万口”的一分子。所以我们现在就可以向主跪拜。

与我们的敌人联合?何时?何地?
19:23-25 在耶稣基督里面,我们可以在爱中与以前的敌人联合。在基督里,因政治而分开的百姓和民族,将跪倒在他的脚前成为弟兄姊妹。基督已经清除了所有威胁人际关系的障碍(参弗2:13-19)。
