24:1 看哪,耶和华使地空虚,变为荒凉。又翻转大地,将居民分散。

Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.

24:2 那时百姓怎样,祭司也怎样。仆人怎样,主人也怎样。婢女怎样,主母也怎样。买物的怎样,卖物的也怎样。放债的怎样,借债的也怎样。取利的怎样,出利的也怎样。

And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.

24:3 地必全然空虚,尽都荒凉。因为这话是耶和华说的。

The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word.

24:4 地上悲哀衰残,世界败落衰残,地上居高位的人也败落了。

The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.

24:5 地被其上的居民污秽。因为他们犯了律法,废了律例,背了永约。

The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.

24:6 所以地被咒诅吞灭,住在其上的显为有罪。地上的居民被火焚烧,剩下的人稀少。

Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

24:7 新酒悲哀,葡萄树衰残,心中欢乐的,俱都叹息。

The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh.

24:8 击鼓之乐止息,宴乐人的声音完毕,弹琴之乐也止息了。

The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth.

24:9 人必不得饮酒唱歌。喝浓酒的,必以为苦。

They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it.

24:10 荒凉的城拆毁了。各家关门闭户,使人都不得进去。

The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in.

24:11 在街上因酒有悲欢的声音。一切喜乐变为昏暗。地上的欢乐归于无有。

There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.

24:12 城中只有荒凉,城门拆毁净尽。

In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction.

24:13 在地上的万民中,必像打过的橄榄树,又像已摘的葡萄所剩无几。

When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done.

24:14 这些人要高声欢呼。他们为耶和华的威严,从海那里扬起声来。

They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea.

24:15 因此你们要在东方荣耀耶和华,在众海岛荣耀耶和华以色列神的名。

Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea.

24:16 我们听见从地极有人歌唱,说,荣耀归于义人。我却说,我消灭了,我消灭了,我有祸了。诡诈的行诡诈,诡诈的大行诡诈。

From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.

24:17 地上的居民哪,恐惧,陷坑,网罗,都临近你。

Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.

24:18 躲避恐惧声音的必坠入陷坑。从陷坑上来的必被网罗缠住。因为天上的窗户都开了,地的根基也震动了。

And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.

24:19 地全然破坏,尽都崩裂,大大的震动了。

The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.

24:20 地要东倒西歪,好像醉酒的人。又摇来摇去,好像吊床。罪过在其上沉重,必然塌陷,不能复起。

The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.

24:21 到那日耶和华在高处必惩罚高处的众军,在地上必惩罚地上的列王,

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.

24:22 他们必被聚集,像囚犯被聚在牢狱中,并要囚在监牢里,多日之后便被讨罪。(或作眷顾)

And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.

24:23 那时月亮要蒙羞,日头要惭愧。因为万军之耶和华必在锡安山,在耶路撒冷作王。在敬畏他的长老面前,必有荣耀。

Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

以赛亚书24参考

神的审判不仅是对犹大,而且──
24-27章 这四章通常被称作“以赛亚的启示”,它们讨论了神对整个罪恶世界的审判。以赛亚的预言最初指向的是犹大,然后是以色列,其后是周围国家,最后是整个世界。这些章节描述了神在末日对世界的审判,那个时候神将永远除去邪恶。

人犯罪,其影响有多广?
24:4-5 不仅人因罪恶而受苦,就连土地也受到了牵连。今天我们看到了罪在我们中间的结果:环境污染、刑事案件、毒瘾、贫困。罪影响了社会的每一角落,就是那些对神忠心的人也在受苦。我们不能为这些事情埋怨神,因为这些事情是由人类的罪招致的。我们应该拒绝罪,抵制不道德的行为,并与他人分享神的话语,这样做社会的腐化进程便会放慢。我们不能放弃努力,罪虽在蔓延,但我们可以抵制它。

有人得荣耀,有人遭毁灭,这发生在……
24:14-16 在神审判犹大之后,留下的信徒将歌颂神的公义和荣耀。以赛亚为他那个时代的罪恶而悲痛,我们也因为周围的邪恶变得沮丧。在这时候,我们须要紧紧抓住神对未来的应许,并盼望神重建天地时向神歌唱。

高处──众军……
24:21 “在高处的众军”是指敌对神的灵界力量。所有人,包括堕落的天使在内,都不能逃脱神的审判。
