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

19:1 希西家王听见,就撕裂衣服,披上麻布,进了耶和华的殿。

And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the LORD.

19:2 使家宰以利亚敬和书记舍伯那,并祭司中的长老,都披上麻布,去见亚摩斯的儿子先知以赛亚,

And he sent Eliakim, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests, covered with sackcloth, to Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.

19:3 对他说,希西家如此说,今日是急难,责罚,凌辱的日子,就如妇人将要生产婴孩,却没有力量生产。

And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy; for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.

19:4 或者耶和华你的神听见拉伯沙基的一切话,就是他主人亚述王打发他来辱骂永生神的话,耶和华你的神听见这话,就发斥责。故此,求你为馀剩的民扬声祷告。

It may be the LORD thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the LORD thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that are left.

19:5 希西家王的臣仆就去见以赛亚。

So the servants of king Hezekiah came to Isaiah.

19:6 以赛亚对他们说,要这样对你们的主人说,耶和华如此说,你听见亚述王的仆人亵渎我的话,不要惧怕。

And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say to your master, Thus saith the LORD, Be not afraid of the words which thou hast heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.

19:7 我必惊动(原文作使灵进入)他的心,他要听见风声就归回本地。我必使他在那里倒在刀下。

Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and shall return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.

19:8 拉伯沙基回去,正遇见亚述王攻打立拿,原来他早听见亚述王拔营离开拉吉。

So Rabshakeh returned, and found the king of Assyria warring against Libnah: for he had heard that he was departed from Lachish.

19:9 亚述王听见人论古实王特哈加说,他出来要与你争战。于是亚述王又打发使者去见希西家,吩咐他们说,

And when he heard say of Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, Behold, he is come out to fight against thee: he sent messengers again unto Hezekiah, saying,

19:10 你们对犹大王希西家如此说,不要听你所倚靠的神欺哄你说,耶路撒冷必不交在亚述王的手中。

Thus shall ye speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy God in whom thou trustest deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.

19:11 你总听说亚述诸王向列国所行的,乃是尽行灭绝,难道你还能得救吗。

Behold, thou hast heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands, by destroying them utterly: and shalt thou be delivered?

19:12 我列祖所毁灭的,就是歌散,哈兰,利色,和属提拉撒的伊甸人,这些国的神何曾拯救这些国呢。

Have the gods of the nations delivered them which my fathers have destroyed; as Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph, and the children of Eden which were in Thelasar?

19:13 哈马的王,亚珥拔的王,西法瓦音城的王,希拿,和以瓦的王都在哪里呢。

Where is the king of Hamath, and the king of Arpad, and the king of the city of Sepharvaim, of Hena, and Ivah?

19:14 希西家从使者手里接过书信来,看完了,就上耶和华的殿,将书信在耶和华面前晒开。

And Hezekiah received the letter of the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up into the house of the LORD, and spread it before the LORD.

19:15 希西家向耶和华祷告说,坐在二基路伯上耶和华以色列的神阿,你是天下万国的神,你曾创造天地。

And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD, and said, O LORD God of Israel, which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.

19:16 耶和华阿,求你侧耳而听。耶和华阿,求你睁眼而看。要听西拿基立打发使者来辱骂永生神的话。

LORD, bow down thine ear, and hear: open, LORD, thine eyes, and see: and hear the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent him to reproach the living God.

19:17 耶和华阿,亚述诸王果然使列国和列国之地变为荒凉,

Of a truth, LORD, the kings of Assyria have destroyed the nations and their lands,

19:18 将列国的神像都扔在火里。因为它本不是神,乃是人手所造的,是木头石头的,所以灭绝它。

And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.

19:19 耶和华我们的神阿,现在求你救我们脱离亚述王的手,使天下万国都知道惟独你耶和华是神。

Now therefore, O LORD our God, I beseech thee, save thou us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the LORD God, even thou only.

19:20 亚摩斯的儿子以赛亚就打发人去见希西家,说,耶和华以色列的神如此说,你既然求我攻击亚述王西拿基立,我已听见了。

Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, That which thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria I have heard.

19:21 耶和华论他这样说,锡安的处女藐视你,嗤笑你。耶路撒冷的女子向你摇头。

This is the word that the LORD hath spoken concerning him; The virgin the daughter of Zion hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee.

19:22 你辱骂谁。亵渎谁。扬起声来,高举眼目攻击谁呢。乃是攻击以色列的圣者。

Whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed? and against whom hast thou exalted thy voice, and lifted up thine eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel.

19:23 你藉你的使者辱骂主,并说,我率领许多战车上山顶,到黎巴嫩极深之处。我要砍伐其中高大的香柏树和佳美的松树。我必上极高之处,进入肥田的树林。

By thy messengers thou hast reproached the LORD, and hast said, With the multitude of my chariots I am come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon, and will cut down the tall cedar trees thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and I will enter into the lodgings of his borders, and into the forest of his Carmel.

19:24 我已经在外邦挖井喝水。我必用脚掌踏乾埃及的一切河。

I have digged and drunk strange waters, and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the rivers of besieged places.

19:25 耶和华说,我早先所作的,古时所立的,就是现在藉你使坚固城荒废,变为乱堆,这事你岂没有听见吗。

Hast thou not heard long ago how I have done it, and of ancient times that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste fenced cities into ruinous heaps.

19:26 所以其中的居民力量甚小,惊惶羞愧。他们像野草,像青菜,如房顶上的草,又如未长成而枯乾的禾稼。

Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded; they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the house tops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.

19:27 你坐下,你出去,你进来,你向我发烈怒,我都知道。

But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy coming in, and thy rage against me.

19:28 因你向我发烈怒,又因你狂傲的话达到我耳中,我就要用钩子钩上你的鼻子,把嚼环放在你口里,使你从你来的路转回去。

Because thy rage against me and thy tumult is come up into mine ears, therefore I will put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.

19:29 以色列人哪,我赐你们一个证据,你们今年要吃自生的,明年也要吃自长的。至于后年,你们要耕种收割,栽植葡萄园,吃其中的果子。

And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such things as grow of themselves, and in the second year that which springeth of the same; and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruits thereof.

19:30 犹大家所逃脱馀剩的,仍要往下扎根,向上结果。

And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall yet again take root downward, and bear fruit upward.

19:31 必有馀剩的民从耶路撒冷而出。必有逃脱的人从锡安山而来。耶和华的热心必成就这事。

For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the LORD of hosts shall do this.

19:32 所以,耶和华论亚述王如此说,他必不得来到这城,也不在这里射箭,不得拿盾牌到城前,也不筑垒攻城。

Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shield, nor cast a bank against it.

19:33 他从哪条路来,必从那条路回去,必不得来到这城。这是耶和华说的。

By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the LORD.

19:34 因我为自己的缘故,又为我仆人大卫的缘故,必保护拯救这城。

For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.

19:35 当夜,耶和华的使者出去,在亚述营中杀了十八万五千人。清早有人起来,一看,都是死尸了。

And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the LORD went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

19:36 亚述王西拿基立就拔营回去,住在尼尼微。

So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.

19:37 一日在他的神尼斯洛庙里叩拜,他儿子亚得米勒和沙利色用刀杀了他,就逃到亚拉腊地。他儿子以撒哈顿接续他作王。

And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword: and they escaped into the land of Armenia. And Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead.


19:1-7 西拿基立攻占了犹大所有的坚固城,并打发人劝希西家投降。希西家处于绝境,就上圣殿去祷告。神垂听祈求,派一支军队攻击亚述,迫使西拿基立即刻撤兵,拯救了犹大。我们在面对危机时,首先要做的就是祷告,不要等到绝望的时刻,要每天祈求神引导。我们的困难是神施展作为的机会。

19:2 以赛亚先知自从乌西雅王驾崩的那年蒙召,开始事奉神,至此已经有四十年了(参赛6:1)。亚述虽然是世界的强国,但是只要有以赛亚给犹大王献策,他们就不能征服犹大。以赛亚在乌西雅(亚撒利雅)、约坦、亚哈斯与希西家作王期间发预言。亚哈斯不听他的话,希西家则听他的劝告。我们从以赛亚书可以读到他的预言。

19:15 基路伯是大能的天使。

19:15-19 希西家虽然大胆地来到神面前,却不是轻慢地来朝见神。他承认神掌王权和犹大要完全倚靠他。他的祷告是我们的好榜样,我们不应当畏缩不前,不敢向神祷告;但是我们来到他面前时,必须以神当得的来尊崇他,并且信靠他所行的大能。

19:21-34 神斥责西拿基立侮慢的话语(18:19-25),指责他的狂傲。他以为国家日渐强大,是由于自己的力量与治理得当。事实上,他的成就只是因为神许可所致。把成就归功于自己就是狂傲,神是造物主宰,惟有他管理万国万民。

19:28 亚述人残酷地虐待被掳之人。他们剜去俘虏的眼,砍断他的肢体,剥人皮将人虐待至死,自己却乐此不疲。为叫俘虏作奴仆,他们常常把勾子穿进他们的鼻孔,好像对牲畜一样牵著他们走。神说,他要像亚述人待别人那样待他们。

19:31 只要星星之火尚未熄灭,它就能点起光明的火炬,属灵的事也是一样,只要还有少数剩下来的真信徒仍保留信仰的火花,神就能使用他们重建强大的民族。在人心里,如果有一点点信仰的微光,神就能使用它去重燃光明的信心。如果你觉得在你里面仍有少许信心的火花,你应当求神使用它,重燃你对他至死忠心的烈焰。
