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

47:1 巴比伦的处女阿,下来坐在尘埃,迦勒底的闺女阿,没有宝座,要坐在地上,因为你不再称为柔弱娇嫩的。

Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.

47:2 要用磨磨面。揭去帕子,脱去长衣,露腿趟河。

Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.

47:3 你的下体必被露出,你的丑陋必被看见。我要报仇,谁也不宽容。

Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man.

47:4 我们救赎主的名是万军之耶和华以色列的圣者。

As for our redeemer, the LORD of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel.

47:5 迦勒底的闺女阿,你要默然静坐,进入暗中,因为你不再称为列国的主母。

Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called, The lady of kingdoms.

47:6 我向我的百姓发怒,使我的产业被亵渎,将他们交在你手中,你毫不怜悯他们,把极重的轭加在老年人身上。

I was wroth with my people, I have polluted mine inheritance, and given them into thine hand: thou didst shew them no mercy; upon the ancient hast thou very heavily laid thy yoke.

47:7 你自己说,我必永为主母,所以你不将这事放在心上,也不思想这事的结局。

And thou saidst, I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it.

47:8 你这专好宴乐,安然居住的,现在当听这话,你心中说,惟有我,除我以外再没有别的,我必不至寡居,也不遭丧子之事。

Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:

47:9 那知丧子,寡居,这两件事,在一日转眼之间必临到你,正在你多行邪术,广施符咒的时候,这两件事必全然临到你身上。

But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments.

47:10 你素来倚仗自己的恶行,说,无人看见我。你的智慧,聪明,使你偏邪,并且你心里说,惟有我,除我以外再没有别的。

For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me.

47:11 因此,祸患要临到你身,你不知何时发现。(何时发现或作如何驱逐)灾害落在你身上,你也不能除掉。所不知道的毁灭,也必忽然临到你身。

Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know.

47:12 站起来吧,用你从幼年劳神施行的符咒,和你许多的邪术,或者可得益处,或者可得强胜。

Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail.

47:13 你筹画太多,以致疲倦。让那些观天象的,看星宿的,在月朔说预言的,都站起来,救你脱离所要临到你的事。

Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.

47:14 他们要像碎秸被火焚烧,不能救自己脱离火焰之力,这火并非可烤的炭火,也不是可以坐在其前的火。

Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.

47:15 你所劳神的事,都要这样与你无益。从幼年与你贸易的,也都各奔各乡,无人救你。

Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured, even thy merchants, from thy youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save thee.

以赛亚书47参考

先知的预言有没有偶然巧合的可能?
47章 以赛亚发出巴比伦覆灭预言的时间,比实际发生的时间早150年,那时候巴比伦还没有成为地上的强国。虽然骄傲的巴比伦帝国后来毁灭了犹大和耶路撒冷,但巴比伦人自己也在公元前539年成为俘虏。是神,而不是巴比伦人有至高无上的权柄。神使用巴比伦人惩罚犯了罪的百姓;神使用玛代波斯捣毁了巴比伦,并释放了他的百姓。

怎样使用自己的一生去荣耀神,而不是荣耀自己呢?
47:8-9 在追求权力和享乐下,巴比伦认为自己伟大,并声称自己是地上惟一的强权。巴比伦感到绝对的安全。尼布甲尼撒王称自己为“神”。但真正的神给了他一个有力的教训,夺去了他所有的一切(参但4:28-37)。我们的社会也沉溺于享乐和权力之中,但是这些都会很快地过去。看看我们自己的生活,问问自己如何更加负责地对待神给的恩赐。

命相、命理有时好像蛮准的,偶尔试试也无妨吧……是吗?
47:12-15 巴比伦的百姓从占星学家和耍占星术的那里寻求答案。但就像木头或金子做的偶像一样,那些星象学家也不能救自己脱离从神而来的东西。为甚么还要依靠那毫无力量的偶像呢?不能自助的东西不可能帮助我们。对神三心二意的人是注定要失败的。如果我们想得到帮助,我们就要在神的里面找。神在历史和创造中已经显示了自己的能力。
