约伯记17 Job

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

17:1 我的心灵消耗,我的日子灭尽。坟墓为我预备好了。

My breath is corrupt, my days are extinct, the graves are ready for me.

17:2 真有戏笑我的在我这里,我眼常见他们惹动我。

Are there not mockers with me? and doth not mine eye continue in their provocation?

17:3 愿主拿凭据给我,自己为我作保。在你以外谁肯与我击掌呢。

Lay down now, put me in a surety with thee; who is he that will strike hands with me?

17:4 因你使他们心不明理,所以你必不高举他们。

For thou hast hid their heart from understanding: therefore shalt thou not exalt them.

17:5 控告他的朋友,以朋友为可抢夺的,连他儿女的眼睛也要失明。

He that speaketh flattery to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail.

17:6 神使我作了民中的笑谈。他们也吐唾沫在我脸上。

He hath made me also a byword of the people; and aforetime I was as a tabret.

17:7 我的眼睛因忧愁昏花。我的百体好像影儿。

Mine eye also is dim by reason of sorrow, and all my members are as a shadow.

17:8 正直人因此必惊奇。无辜的人,要兴起攻击不敬虔之辈。

Upright men shall be astonied at this, and the innocent shall stir up himself against the hypocrite.

17:9 然而,义人要持守所行的道。手洁的人要力上加力。

The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.

17:10 至于你们众人,可以再来辩论吧。你们中间,我找不着一个智慧人。

But as for you all, do ye return, and come now: for I cannot find one wise man among you.

17:11 我的日子已经过了。我的谋算,我心所想望的已经断绝。

My days are past, my purposes are broken off, even the thoughts of my heart.

17:12 他们以黑夜为白昼,说,亮光近乎黑暗。

They change the night into day: the light is short because of darkness.

17:13 我若盼望阴间为我的房屋,若下榻在黑暗中,

If I wait, the grave is mine house: I have made my bed in the darkness.

17:14 若对朽坏说,你是我的父。对虫说,你是我的母亲姊妹。

I have said to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister.

17:15 这样,我的指望在那里呢。我所指望的谁能看见呢。

And where is now my hope? as for my hope, who shall see it?

17:16 等到安息在尘土中,这指望必下到阴间的门闩那里了。

They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.

约伯记17参考

对有名望的专家、学者,你会不会有些盲目的迷信?
17:10 约伯的三位朋友因智慧而享有名望,但约伯从他们身上找不到智慧。神支持约伯的话,责备他们错误地描绘他。显然这些人的观点是错的,他们认为,因为他们又富裕又成功,所以神一定喜悦他们的生活和思维方式。然而约伯告诉他的朋友,他们的想法是错误的,因为世上的成功和富有不是对神有信心的凭据。反之,烦恼和痛苦也不是没有信心的证明。真正有智慧的人知道智慧仅源于神,而不是来自人的失败或成功;真正有智慧的人从不抛弃神。神的智慧证明他是超越约伯和他所有朋友的。

约伯绝望的感叹错在哪里?
17:15 约伯放弃了恢复昔日财富和家庭的希望,并沉溺在死亡及它带来的悲痛与痛苦之中。约伯的朋友所描述的奖赏都是关于今生的。对死后生命的前景,他们却沉默不语。我们不该用当今世界的眼光去评估自己的生命,因为神对属他的人应许给予永无止境的美好未来。
