22:1 论异象谷的默示。有什么事使你这满城的人都上房顶呢。

The burden of the valley of vision. What aileth thee now, that thou art wholly gone up to the housetops?

22:2 你这满处呐喊,大有喧哗的城,欢乐的邑阿,你中间被杀的,并不是被刀杀,也不是因打仗死亡。

Thou that art full of stirs, a tumultuous city, a joyous city: thy slain men are not slain with the sword, nor dead in battle.

22:3 你所有的官长一同逃跑,都为弓箭手所捆绑。你中间一切被找到的都一同被捆绑。他们本是逃往远方的。

All thy rulers are fled together, they are bound by the archers: all that are found in thee are bound together, which have fled from far.

22:4 所以我说,你们转眼不看我,我要痛哭。不要因我众民(原文作民女)的毁灭,就竭力安慰我。

Therefore said I, Look away from me; I will weep bitterly, labour not to comfort me, because of the spoiling of the daughter of my people.

22:5 因为主万军之耶和华使异象谷有溃乱,践踏,烦扰的日子。城被攻破,哀声达到山间。

For it is a day of trouble, and of treading down, and of perplexity by the Lord GOD of hosts in the valley of vision, breaking down the walls, and of crying to the mountains.

22:6 以栏带着箭袋,还有坐战车的和马兵,吉珥揭开盾牌。

And Elam bare the quiver with chariots of men and horsemen, and Kir uncovered the shield.

22:7 你嘉美的谷遍满战车,也有马兵在城门前排列。

And it shall come to pass, that thy choicest valleys shall be full of chariots, and the horsemen shall set themselves in array at the gate.

22:8 他去掉犹大的遮盖。那日,你就仰望林库内的军器。

And he discovered the covering of Judah, and thou didst look in that day to the armour of the house of the forest.

22:9 你们看见大卫城的破口很多,便聚积下池的水。

Ye have seen also the breaches of the city of David, that they are many: and ye gathered together the waters of the lower pool.

22:10 又数点耶路撒冷的房屋,将房屋拆毁,修补城墙。

And ye have numbered the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses have ye broken down to fortify the wall.

22:11 又在两道城墙中间挖一个聚水池,可盛旧池的水。却不仰望作这事的主,也不顾念从古定这事的。

Ye made also a ditch between the two walls for the water of the old pool: but ye have not looked unto the maker thereof, neither had respect unto him that fashioned it long ago.

22:12 当那日,主万军之耶和华叫人哭泣哀号,头上光秃,身披麻布。

And in that day did the Lord GOD of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth:

22:13 谁知,人倒欢喜快乐,宰牛杀羊,吃肉喝酒,说,我们吃喝吧,因为明天要死了。

And behold joy and gladness, slaying oxen, and killing sheep, eating flesh, and drinking wine: let us eat and drink; for to morrow we shall die.

22:14 万军之耶和华亲自默示我,说,这罪孽直到你们死,断不得赦免。这是主万军之耶和华说的。

And it was revealed in mine ears by the LORD of hosts, Surely this iniquity shall not be purged from you till ye die, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.

22:15 主万军之耶和华这样说,你去见掌银库的,就是家宰舍伯那,对他说,

Thus saith the Lord GOD of hosts, Go, get thee unto this treasurer, even unto Shebna, which is over the house, and say,

22:16 你在这里作什么呢。有什么人竟在这里凿坟墓,就是在高处为自给凿坟墓,在磐石中为自己凿出安身之所。

What hast thou here? and whom hast thou here, that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock?

22:17 看哪,耶和华必像大有力的人,将你紧紧缠裹,竭力抛去。

Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee.

22:18 他必将你辊成一团,抛在宽阔之地,好像抛球一样。你这主人家的羞辱,必在那里坐你荣耀的车,也必在那里死亡。

He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord’s house.

22:19 我必赶逐你离开官职。你必从你的原位撤下。

And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down.

22:20 到那日我必召我仆人希勒家的儿子以利亚敬来。

And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah:

22:21 将你的外袍给他穿上,将你的腰带给他系紧,将你的政权交在他手中。他必作耶路撒冷居民和犹大家的父。

And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.

22:22 我必将大卫家的钥匙放在他肩头上。他开,无人能关。他关,无人能开。

And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.

22:23 我必将他安稳,像钉子钉在坚固处。他必作为他父家荣耀的宝座。

And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father’s house.

22:24 他父家所有的荣耀,连儿女带子孙,都挂在他身上,好像一切小器皿,从杯子到酒瓶挂上一样。

And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father’s house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons.

22:25 万军之耶和华说,当那日,钉在坚固处的钉子必压斜,被砍断落地。挂在其上的重担必被剪断。因为这是耶和华说的。

In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, shall the nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall; and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off: for the LORD hath spoken it.

以赛亚书22参考

“异象谷”是真实存在的地方吗?
22:1-13 “异象谷”是指耶和华所住的耶路撒冷城。耶路撒冷不会遭受攻击,除非神的百姓背离了神,可是他们使用了各种可能的保护方法,就是不向神求助;他们相信自己的智慧、武器,甚至他们的异教邻邦(参代下32章中关于耶路撒冷被围攻的描述)。

我所关心的人不听我好意的劝告时,我是痛心还是痛恨?
22:4 以赛亚虽警告了百姓,但他们仍不悔改,因此他们要受到神的审判。以赛亚顾念百姓,为百姓受到的审判感到痛心,深深悲哀。有时候我们所关心的人不听我们的劝告,结果他们遭受到本来可以避免的痛苦。我们很多时候为这些事伤心。神期望我们参与别人的事,有的时候也要我们跟他们一同受苦。

“以拦”──“箭袋”吉珥──盾牌、目标──
22:6-7 以兰和吉珥处于亚述的统治之下。整个亚述帝国的军队,包括为臣的各路诸侯都前来攻打耶路撒冷。

有了物质上的准备,是否就有了得胜的保障?
22:8-11 领袖们在竭力准备战争:他们有了武器,修筑了城墙,在水库中储备了水。但他们所有的努力都白费心思,因为他们从来就不向耶和华求助。我们经常采取的措施,往往本身不错,但不能解决问题。我们需要“得到武器修筑城墙”,但要有神来指导工作才行。

假如我明天就要离世,我最想做的又是甚么?
22:13-14 人们说:“让我们来吃喝,”这是因为他们放弃了希望。他们四面受攻(22:7),本应悔改(22:12)可是他们却选择了欢宴。问题的根本在于犹大不信靠神的能力和应许(参56:12;林前15:32)。当你面对困难的时候,要去寻求神。今天我们仍然看到有人在放弃希望,人们对无望有两种普遍的反应:绝望和自我沉沦。但人的一生并不是永无指望,所以我们不应因一时的困难而绝望。正确的反应当是信靠神和他的应许,神要把我们带入他创造的理想新世界。

舍伯那是个怎样的人?
22:15-25 舍伯那是位宫廷掌管财物的高级官员。他跟耶路撒冷的其他人一样务实(22:13)。他可能支持犹大与外国联盟,因为他忽视了以赛亚的忠告。神说:舍伯那要丢掉他的职位并由以利亚敬接任(2:21)。以利亚敬是被楔入“牢固处”的“钉子”(22:23)。不幸的是以利亚敬也会跌倒(22:25)。
