38:1 那时希西家病得要死,亚摩斯的儿子先知以赛亚去见他,对他说,耶和华如此说,你当留遗命与你的家,因为你必死不能活了。

In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came unto him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order: for thou shalt die, and not live.

38:2 希西家就转脸朝墙,祷告耶和华说,

Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed unto the LORD,

38:3 耶和华阿,求你记念我在你面前怎样存完全的心,按诚实行事,又作你眼中所看为善的。希西家就痛哭了。

And said, Remember now, O LORD, I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.

38:4 耶和华的话临到以赛亚说,

Then came the word of the LORD to Isaiah, saying,

38:5 你去告诉希西家说,耶和华你祖大卫的神如此说,我听见了你的祷告,看见了你的眼泪,我必加增你十五年的寿数。

Go, and say to Hezekiah, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will add unto thy days fifteen years.

38:6 并且我要救你和这城脱离亚述王的手,也要保护这城。

And I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria: and I will defend this city.

38:7 我耶和华必成就我所说的,我先给你一个兆头。

And this shall be a sign unto thee from the LORD, that the LORD will do this thing that he hath spoken;

38:8 就是叫亚哈斯的日晷,向前进的日影往后退十度。于是前进的日影,果然在日晷上往后退了十度。

Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down.

38:9 犹大王希西家患病,已经痊愈,就作诗说,

The writing of Hezekiah king of Judah, when he had been sick, and was recovered of his sickness:

38:10 我说,正在我中年(或作晌午)之日,必进入阴间的门。我馀剩的年岁不得享受。

I said in the cutting off of my days, I shall go to the gates of the grave: I am deprived of the residue of my years.

38:11 我说,我必不得见耶和华,就是在活人之地不见耶和华。我与世上的居民不再见面。

I said, I shall not see the LORD, even the LORD, in the land of the living: I shall behold man no more with the inhabitants of the world.

38:12 我的住处被迁去离开我,好像牧人的帐棚一样。我将性命卷起,像织布的卷布一样。耶和华必将我从机头剪断,从早到晚,他要使我完结。

Mine age is departed, and is removed from me as a shepherd’s tent: I have cut off like a weaver my life: he will cut me off with pining sickness: from day even to night wilt thou make an end of me.

38:13 我使自己安静直到天亮。他像狮子折断我一切的骨头,从早到晚,他要使我完结。

I reckoned till morning, that, as a lion, so will he break all my bones: from day even to night wilt thou make an end of me.

38:14 我像燕子呢喃。像白鹤呜叫。又像鸽子哀呜。我因仰观,眼睛困倦。耶和华阿,我受欺压。求你为我作保。

Like a crane or a swallow, so did I chatter: I did mourn as a dove: mine eyes fail with looking upward: O LORD, I am oppressed; undertake for me.

38:15 我可说什么呢,他应许我的,也给我成就了。我因心里的苦楚,在一生的年日,必悄悄而行。

What shall I say? he hath both spoken unto me, and himself hath done it: I shall go softly all my years in the bitterness of my soul.

38:16 主阿,人得存活,乃在乎此。我灵存活,也全在此。所以求你使我痊愈,仍然存活。

O LORD, by these things men live, and in all these things is the life of my spirit: so wilt thou recover me, and make me to live.

38:17 看哪,我受大苦,本为使我得平安,你因爱我的灵魂,(或作生命)便救我脱离败坏的坑。因为你将我一切的罪,扔在你的背后。

Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption: for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back.

38:18 原来阴间不能称谢你,死亡不能颂扬你,下坑的人不能盼望你的诚实。

For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.

38:19 只有活人,活人必称谢你,像我今日称谢你一样。为父的,必使儿女知道你的诚实。

The living, the living, he shall praise thee, as I do this day: the father to the children shall make known thy truth.

38:20 耶和华肯救我,所以我们要一生一世,在耶和华殿中用丝弦的乐器,唱我的诗歌。

The LORD was ready to save me: therefore we will sing my songs to the stringed instruments all the days of our life in the house of the LORD.

38:21 以赛亚说,当取一块无花果饼来,贴在疮上,王必痊愈。

For Isaiah had said, Let them take a lump of figs, and lay it for a plaister upon the boil, and he shall recover.

38:22 希西家问说,我能上耶和华的殿,有什么兆头呢。

Hezekiah also had said, What is the sign that I shall go up to the house of the LORD?

以赛亚书38参考

38:1 第38和39章中的事件是发生在第36和37章中的事件之前。

神对人一生的安排,会因人的祈求而改变吗?
38:1-5 当以赛亚找到希西家的时候,希西家病得很厉害。以赛亚告诉他要死的消息,希西家马上转向了神。神答应了他的祷告,让希西家多活了十五年。在回答急切的祷告时,神也可以改变我们的生活。你如果想要彻底的变化并以它们荣耀神的话,那你就不要犹豫地向神求告。

君王对神的态度,不单单影响自己一个人,你看──
38:1-6 根据历代志下32章24至26节,就在希西家得到了医治和解救的双重神迹之后,他犯了骄傲的错误。后来他和他的臣仆谦卑下来,神就免除了对好几代的审判。

在经历了神的恩典后,你是如何感谢、赞美神的?
38:16-18 希西家认识到他的祷告带来了解救和赦罪。他的话“阴间不能称谢你”可能表示他不知道神对那些信神的人在未来的祝福(57:1-2);也或许他是说死人无法赞美神。无论哪种情形,希西家知道是神救了他的性命,所以他在诗歌中赞美神。希西家认识到,好的东西来自他的痛苦经历。如果你也在困难中挣扎,那就向神祷告求他的帮助,从挣扎中得到益处。

你有没有同你的子女或其他人分享你和神的关系呢?
38:19 希西家说到了将主的喜乐由父亲传给子女,代代相传的重要性。信心的产业临到了我们,是因为那些信心男女将神的信息经过几个世纪传给了我们。
