以赛亚书46 Isaiah

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

46:1 彼勒屈身,尼波弯腰。巴比伦的偶像驮在兽和牲畜上,他们所抬的如今成了重驮,使牲畜疲乏。

Bel boweth down, Nebo stoopeth, their idols were upon the beasts, and upon the cattle: your carriages were heavy loaden; they are a burden to the weary beast.

46:2 都一同弯腰屈身,不能保全重驮,自己倒被掳去。

They stoop, they bow down together; they could not deliver the burden, but themselves are gone into captivity.

46:3 雅各家,以色列家一切剩馀的,要听我言,你们自从生下,就蒙我保抱,自从出胎,便蒙我怀搋。

Hearken unto me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, which are borne by me from the belly, which are carried from the womb:

46:4 直到你们年老,我仍这样,直到你们发白,我仍怀搋,我已造作,也必保抱,我必怀抱,也必拯救。

And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.

46:5 你们将谁与我相比,与我同等,可以与我比较,使我们相同呢。

To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?

46:6 那从囊中抓金子,用天平平银子的人,雇银匠制造神像,他们又俯伏,又叩拜。

They lavish gold out of the bag, and weigh silver in the balance, and hire a goldsmith; and he maketh it a god: they fall down, yea, they worship.

46:7 他们将神像抬起,扛在肩上,安置在定处,他就站立,不离本位,人呼求他,他不能答应,也不能救人脱离患难。

They bear him upon the shoulder, they carry him, and set him in his place, and he standeth; from his place shall he not remove: yea, one shall cry unto him, yet can he not answer, nor save him out of his trouble.

46:8 你们当想念这事,自己作大丈夫。悖逆的人哪,要心里思想。

Remember this, and shew yourselves men: bring it again to mind, O ye transgressors.

46:9 你们要追念上古的事,因为我是神,并无别神,我是神,再没有能比我的。

Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,

46:10 我从起初指明末后的事,从古时言明未成的事,说,我的筹算必立定,凡我所喜悦的,我必成就。

Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

46:11 我召鸷鸟从东方来,召那成就我筹算的人从远方来。我已说出,也必成就,我已谋定,也必作成。

Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.

46:12 你们这些心中顽梗,远离公义的,当听我言。

Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that are far from righteousness:

46:13 我使我的公义临近,必不远离,我的救恩必不迟延,我要为以色列我的荣耀,在锡安施行救恩。

I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.

以赛亚书46参考

彼勒、尼波成了巴比伦人的重负,我身上是否也有类似的重负?
46:1-4 塞鲁士将对巴比伦执行神的审判。“彼勒”是巴比伦人主要的神;“尼波”是“科学和学习之神”。然而这些“神”需要动物和人来抬它们走,在被掳的时候甚至连自己也救不了。它们没有任何能力。相形之下,我们的神创造了我们并照料我们。神对我们的慈爱长存,对我们的眷顾贯穿我们一生,并直到永远。

回顾历史,有助于温习自己得救的经历……
46:8-11 以色列受惑在主和外邦神只之间徘徊。以赛亚说耶和华是惟一的主。神在知识和掌握未来方面独一无二。神始终如一的追求就是去实现他所订的计划。当我们受了试探离开了神的时候,当我们追求快乐、舒适、平安或保障的时候,我们必须记住我们向神作出的许诺。

神的拯救是否只属于将来的事?我现在就急需他……
46:13 以赛亚书所讲到的大部分是将来的拯救。那时候我们将在完全的平安中与神同住。神不仅给了我们未来的希望,而且也提供我们现今需要的帮助。神的公义近了,我们不必坐等神的拯救。
