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

24:1 全能者既定期罚恶,为何不使认识他的人看见那日子呢。

Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?

24:2 有人挪移地界,抢夺群畜而牧养。

Some remove the landmarks; they violently take away flocks, and feed thereof.

24:3 他们拉去孤儿的驴,强取寡妇的牛为当头。

They drive away the ass of the fatherless, they take the widow’s ox for a pledge.

24:4 他们使穷人离开正道,世上的贫民尽都隐藏。

They turn the needy out of the way: the poor of the earth hide themselves together.

24:5 这些贫穷人,如同野驴出到旷野,殷勤寻梢食物。他们靠着野地给儿女糊口,

Behold, as wild asses in the desert, go they forth to their work; rising betimes for a prey: the wilderness yieldeth food for them and for their children.

24:6 收割别人田间的禾稼,摘取恶人馀剩的葡萄。

They reap every one his corn in the field: and they gather the vintage of the wicked.

24:7 终夜赤身无衣,天气寒冷毫无遮盖,

They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no covering in the cold.

24:8 在山上被大雨淋湿,因没有避身之处就挨近磐石。

They are wet with the showers of the mountains, and embrace the rock for want of a shelter.

24:9 又有人从母怀中抢夺孤儿,强取穷人的衣服为当头。

They pluck the fatherless from the breast, and take a pledge of the poor.

24:10 使人赤身无衣,到处流行,且因饥饿扛抬禾捆,

They cause him to go naked without clothing, and they take away the sheaf from the hungry;

24:11 在那些人的围墙内造油,榨酒,自己还口渴。

Which make oil within their walls, and tread their winepresses, and suffer thirst.

24:12 在多民的城内有人唉哼,受伤的人哀号。神却不理会(那恶人的愚妄。

Men groan from out of the city, and the soul of the wounded crieth out: yet God layeth not folly to them.

24:13 又有人背弃光明,不认识光明的道,不住在光明的路上。

They are of those that rebel against the light; they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof.

24:14 杀人的黎明起来,杀害困苦穷乏人,夜间又作盗贼。

The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief.

24:15 奸夫等候黄昏,说,必无眼能见我,就把脸蒙蔽。

The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me: and disguiseth his face.

24:16 盗贼黑夜挖窟窿,白日躲藏,并不认识光明。

In the dark they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime: they know not the light.

24:17 他们看早晨如幽暗,因为他们晓得幽暗的惊骇。

For the morning is to them even as the shadow of death: if one know them, they are in the terrors of the shadow of death.

24:18 这些恶人犹如浮萍快快飘去。他们所得的分在世上被咒诅。他们不得再走葡萄园的路。

He is swift as the waters; their portion is cursed in the earth: he beholdeth not the way of the vineyards.

24:19 乾旱炎热消没雪水,阴间也如此消没犯罪之辈。

Drought and heat consume the snow waters: so doth the grave those which have sinned.

24:20 怀他的母(原文是胎)要忘记他。虫子要吃他,觉得甘甜。他不再被人记念。不义的人必如树折断。

The womb shall forget him; the worm shall feed sweetly on him; he shall be no more remembered; and wickedness shall be broken as a tree.

24:21 他恶待(或作他吞灭)不怀孕不生养的妇人,不善待寡妇。

He evil entreateth the barren that beareth not: and doeth not good to the widow.

24:22 然而神用能力保全有势力的人,那性命难保的人仍然兴起。

He draweth also the mighty with his power: he riseth up, and no man is sure of life.

24:23 神使他们安稳,他们就有所倚靠。神的眼目也看顾他们的道路。

Though it be given him to be in safety, whereon he resteth; yet his eyes are upon their ways.

24:24 他们被高举,不过片时就没有了。他们降为卑,被除灭,与众人一样,又如谷穗被割。

They are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low; they are taken out of the way as all other, and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.

24:25 若不是这样,谁能证实我是说谎的,将我的言语驳为虚空呢。

And if it be not so now, who will make me a liar, and make my speech nothing worth?

约伯记24参考

怎么,约伯的观点变了吗?
24:18-21 这里约伯似乎突然站在他朋友的一边在争论。因此一些解经家认为,这段是约伯朋友中的一位说的话。不过我们不该指望约伯提出的论点能保持一致。他也被弄糊涂了。他并不是争辩神在任何情况下都奖励恶人惩罚义人,他只是宣称在这样的情况下义人正在受苦。
