24:1 你不要嫉妒恶人,也不要起意与他们相处。

Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them.

24:2 因为他们的心,图谋强暴。他们的口谈论奸恶。

For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.

24:3 房屋因智慧建造,又因聪明立稳。

Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:

24:4 其中因知识充满各样美好宝贵的财物。

And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

24:5 智慧人大有能力。有知识的人,力上加力。

A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.

24:6 你去打仗,要凭智谋。谋士众多,人便得胜。

For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.

24:7 智慧极高,非愚昧人所能及,所以在城门内,不敢开口。

Wisdom is too high for a fool: he openeth not his mouth in the gate.

24:8 设计作恶的,必称为奸人。

He that deviseth to do evil shall be called a mischievous person.

24:9 愚妄人的思念,乃是罪恶。亵慢者为人所憎恶。

The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.

24:10 你在患难之日若胆怯,你的力量就微小。

If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.

24:11 人被拉到死地,你要解救。人将被杀,你须拦阻。

If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;

24:12 你若说,这事我未曾知道。那衡量人心的,岂不明白吗。保守你命的,岂不知道吗。他岂不按各人所行的,报应各人吗。

If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?

24:13 我儿,你要吃蜜,因为是好的。吃蜂房下滴的蜜,更觉甘甜。

My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste:

24:14 你心得了智慧,也必觉的如此。你若找着,至终必有善报。你的指望,也不至断绝。

So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.

24:15 你这恶人,不要埋伏攻击义人的家。不要毁坏他安居之所。

Lay not wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; spoil not his resting place:

24:16 因为义人虽七次跌倒,仍必兴起。恶人却被祸患倾倒。

For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.

24:17 你仇敌跌倒,你不要欢喜。他倾倒,你心不要快乐。

Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth:

24:18 恐怕耶和华看见就不喜悦,将怒气从仇敌身上转过来。

Lest the LORD see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.

24:19 不要为作恶的心怀不平。也不要嫉妒恶人。

Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked;

24:20 因为恶人终不得善报。恶人的灯也必熄灭。

For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out.

24:21 我儿,你要敬畏耶和华与君王。不要与反覆无常的人结交。

My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change:

24:22 因为他们的灾难,必忽然而起。耶和华与君王所施行的毁灭,谁能知道呢。

For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?

24:23 以下也是智慧人的箴言。审判时看人的情面,是不好的。

These things also belong to the wise. It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment.

24:24 对恶人说,你是义人的,这人万民必咒诅,列邦必憎恶。

He that saith unto the wicked, Thou art righteous; him shall the people curse, nations shall abhor him:

24:25 责备恶人的,必得喜悦。美好的福,也必临到他。

But to them that rebuke him shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them.

24:26 应对正直的,犹如与人亲嘴。

Every man shall kiss his lips that giveth a right answer.

24:27 你要在外头豫备工料,在田间办理整齐,然后建造房屋。

Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house.

24:28 不可无故作见证,陷害邻舍。也不可用嘴欺骗人。

Be not a witness against thy neighbour without cause; and deceive not with thy lips.

24:29 不可说,人怎样对待我,我也怎样待他,我必照他所行的报复他。

Say not, I will do so to him as he hath done to me: I will render to the man according to his work.

24:30 我经过懒惰人的田地,无知人的葡萄园。

I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding;

24:31 荆棘长满了地皮,刺草遮盖了田面,石墙也坍塌了。

And, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down.

24:32 我看见就留心思想,我看着就领了训诲。

Then I saw, and considered it well: I looked upon it, and received instruction.

24:33 再睡片时,打盹片时,抱着手躺卧片时,

Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:

24:34 你的贫穷,就必如强盗速来,你的缺乏,彷佛拿兵器的人来到。

So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.

箴言24参考

人说健康第一,我把增强智慧和体格,哪样放在先?
24:5 能评估情势,设计对策的运动员,往往比体力较强而不懂思考的对手占有优势。神吩咐人管理他所造的动物,完全是因为人有智慧,而不是体力。我们为了增强体格,经常做运动,注重营养,但有没有下同样的功夫增长智慧呢?智慧是力量之中的重要部分,是值得付上代价获取的。

向人请教岂不显得我无知无谋?我这样的人最好……
24:6 就一切重大的抉择,例如就学业、婚姻、事业、生育儿女等等请教别人并不是软弱的表现。相反地,不求问别人才是愚蠢的。在你作任何重大抉择以前,要先寻求好的顾问。他们能帮助你,给你可行的建议,评估你所作的抉择。

心里所想的,与行动一样重要,我当怎样保守自己的心?
24:8 密谋作恶的人,与做恶事的人一样有罪,因为你心里所想的,决定你要做的。如果你不抑止错误的欲望,就会令你犯罪。神要我们过手洁心清的生活,毫无罪污。然而密谋作恶的人,即使是还没有行出来,但照样败坏了纯洁的心灵。那么可否说:“既然这样,我计划好了的,就只好照著去做了”?当然不可,因为虽然你心里已经犯了罪,但你尚没有伤害别人的行动。你应该悬崖勒马,求神赦免并领你走上正道。

我怕患难,经常求神不要让我遭遇患难,有甚么不对吗?
24:10 患难之日可能对人有益。因为患难能使你认识自己是个怎样的人,有甚么样的性格。除此以外,它也能使你变得更坚强。在耶利米求问神他为何遭遇苦难的时候,神反问他,如果连这些不顺都使他厌烦的话,他怎能指望面对更大的挑战呢(参耶12:5)?所以不要埋怨你所遇到的困难。你今天面对苦难,正是神要训练你变得更坚强,使你能面对将来更艰难的挑战。

“哈!他可倒霉了!活该!”你是不是高兴得太早了?
24:17-18 所罗门的父亲大卫王听到一直与他为敌的扫罗王的死讯后,并没有幸灾乐祸(参撒下1章)。另一方面,以东人则因以色列人被仇敌打败而欢喜,所以受到神的惩罚(参俄12)。因别人遭殃而高兴,是把你自己当成伸冤者而取代神的地位。只有神才是审判全地的真正主宰(参申32:35)。

这亲嘴的习俗代表的是──
24:26 亲嘴象徵著真正的友谊。人常以为应当隐讳真情,以免伤害朋友,但是说诚实话的人,才是真正的朋友。

你善于不善于科学地安排工作程序?
24:27 我们应当按部就班地进行工作。如果农夫在春季盖房子,他就会错过播种的季节,令他颗粒无收。如果商人的生意不景、资金短缺,却增加投资,结果可能全盘皆输。如果时机不对或对资源处理不当,你即使再努力,也可能失去一切。

人不可报复,因为──
24:29 报复与登山宝训中的教导相违背(参路6:31)。报复是世人的行事方式,不是神的。
