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

31:1 祸哉,那些下埃及求帮住的,是因仗赖马匹,倚靠甚多的车辆,并倚靠强壮的马兵,却不仰望以色列的圣者,也不求问耶和华。

Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD!

31:2 其实耶和华有智慧。他必降灾祸,并不反悔自己的话,却要兴起攻击那作恶之家,又攻击那作孽帮助人的。

Yet he also is wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words: but will arise against the house of the evildoers, and against the help of them that work iniquity.

31:3 埃及人不过是人,并不是神。他们的马不过是血肉,并不是灵。耶和华一伸手,那帮助人的必绊跌,那受帮助的也必跌倒,都一同灭亡。

Now the Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the LORD shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.

31:4 耶和华对我如此说,狮子和少壮狮子,获食咆哮,就是喊许多牧人来攻击他,他总不因他们的声音惊惶,也不因他们的喧哗缩伏。如此万军之耶和华,也必降临在锡安山冈上争战。

For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.

31:5 雀鸟怎样扇翅(覆雏),万军之耶和华也要照样保护耶路撒冷,他必保护拯救,要越门保守。

As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.

31:6 以色列人哪,你们深深的悖逆耶和华,现今要归向他。

Turn ye unto him from whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted.

31:7 到那日各人必将他金偶像,银偶像,就是亲手所造陷自己在罪中的,都抛弃了。

For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you for a sin.

31:8 亚述人必倒在刀下,并非人的刀。有刀要将他吞灭,并非人的刀。他必逃避这刀,他的少年人,必成为服苦的。

Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited.

31:9 他的磐石,必因惊吓挪去,他的首领,必因大旗惊惶。这是那有火在锡安,有炉在耶路撒冷的耶和华说的。

And he shall pass over to his strong hold for fear, and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign, saith the LORD, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem.

以赛亚书31参考

犹大人为何只向埃及求助呢?
31:1 犹大指望其他国家提供军事帮助是错误的。(1)他们相信人而不相信神。犹大向那些远比神的力量弱得多的外邦国家寻求保护。埃及和犹大都将因他们的傲慢而覆灭。(2)他们顾及的是自己的利益而不是神的,因此他们不去向神求问。他们触犯了神在申命记17章16节中的规定。(3)他们不愿意为了指望神和为他们的罪悔改而付出代价。当我们有问题的时候,寻求帮助是好的,但我们不可将神和他宝贵的指引放置一旁。

人成了自己所造之物的奴隶,这种异化现象极为普遍……
31:7 有一天人们将抛弃他们的偶像,认识到这些偶像全然无用,只是人造的东西。世俗的偶像如金钱、名誉或成功,都具有诱惑力,它们对我们的灵性成长没有贡献,只能夺去我们本应给予神的时间、精力和爱。开始时这些偶像似乎激动人心,但到最后我们会发现自己成了它们的奴隶。在它们夺去我们的自由之前,就需要认识到它们的危害。
