32:1 犹大王西底家第十年,就是尼布甲尼撒十八年,耶和华的话临到耶利米。

The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD in the tenth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, which was the eighteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar.

32:2 那时巴比伦王的军队围困耶路撒冷,先知耶利米囚在护卫兵的院内,在犹大王的宫中。

For then the king of Babylon’s army besieged Jerusalem: and Jeremiah the prophet was shut up in the court of the prison, which was in the king of Judah’s house.

32:3 因为犹大王西底家已将他囚禁,说,你为什么预言说,耶和华如此说,我必将这城交在巴比伦王的手中,他必攻取这城。

For Zedekiah king of Judah had shut him up, saying, Wherefore dost thou prophesy, and say, Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall take it;

32:4 犹大王西底家必不能逃脱迦勒底人的手,定要交在巴比伦王的手中,要口对口彼此说话,眼对眼彼此相看。

And Zedekiah king of Judah shall not escape out of the hand of the Chaldeans, but shall surely be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon, and shall speak with him mouth to mouth, and his eyes shall behold his eyes;

32:5 巴比伦王必将西底家带到巴比伦。西底家必住在那里,直到我眷顾他的时候。你们虽与迦勒底人争战,却不顺利。这是耶和华说的。

And he shall lead Zedekiah to Babylon, and there shall he be until I visit him, saith the LORD: though ye fight with the Chaldeans, ye shall not prosper.

32:6 耶利米说,耶和华的话临到我说,

And Jeremiah said, The word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

32:7 你叔叔沙龙的儿子哈拿篾必来见你,说,我在亚拿突的那块地,求你买来。因你买这地是合乎赎回之理。

Behold, Hanameel the son of Shallum thine uncle shall come unto thee, saying, Buy thee my field that is in Anathoth: for the right of redemption is thine to buy it.

32:8 我叔叔的儿子哈拿篾果然照耶和华的话来到护卫兵的院内,对我说,我在便雅悯境内,亚拿突的那块地,求你买来。因你买来是合乎承受之理,是你当赎的。你为自己买来吧。我耶利米就知道这是耶和华的话。

So Hanameel mine uncle’s son came to me in the court of the prison according to the word of the LORD, and said unto me, Buy my field, I pray thee, that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin: for the right of inheritance is thine, and the redemption is thine; buy it for thyself. Then I knew that this was the word of the LORD.

32:9 我便向我叔叔的儿子哈拿篾买了亚拿突的那块地,平了十七舍客勒银子给他。

And I bought the field of Hanameel my uncle’s son, that was in Anathoth, and weighed him the money, even seventeen shekels of silver.

32:10 我在契上画押,将契封缄,又请见证人来,并用天平将银子平给他。

And I subscribed the evidence, and sealed it, and took witnesses, and weighed him the money in the balances.

32:11 我便将照例按规所立的买契,就是封缄的那一张和敞着的那一张,

So I took the evidence of the purchase, both that which was sealed according to the law and custom, and that which was open:

32:12 当着我叔叔的儿子哈拿篾和画押作见证的人,并坐在护卫兵院内的一切犹大人眼前,交给玛西雅的孙子尼利亚的儿子巴录。

And I gave the evidence of the purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, the son of Maaseiah, in the sight of Hanameel mine uncle’s son, and in the presence of the witnesses that subscribed the book of the purchase, before all the Jews that sat in the court of the prison.

32:13 当着他们众人眼前,我嘱咐巴录说,

And I charged Baruch before them, saying,

32:14 万军之耶和华以色列的神如此说,要将这封缄的和敞着的两张契放在瓦器里,可以存留多日。

Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Take these evidences, this evidence of the purchase, both which is sealed, and this evidence which is open; and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may continue many days.

32:15 因为万军之耶和华以色列的神如此说,将来在这地必有人再买房屋,田地,和葡萄园。

For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land.

32:16 我将买契交给尼利亚的儿子巴录以后,便祷告耶和华说,

Now when I had delivered the evidence of the purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, I prayed unto the LORD, saying,

32:17 主耶和华阿,你曾用大能和伸出来的膀臂创造天地,在你没有难成的事。

Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:

32:18 你施慈爱与千万人,又将父亲的罪孽报应在他后世子孙的怀中,是至大全能的神,万军之耶和华是你的名。

Thou shewest lovingkindness unto thousands, and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, the LORD of hosts, is his name,

32:19 谋事有大略,行事有大能,注目观看世人一切的举动,为要照各人所行的和他作事的结果报应他。

Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings:

32:20 在埃及地显神迹奇事,直到今日在以色列和别人中间也是如此,使自己得了名声,正如今日一样。

Which hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day, and in Israel, and among other men; and hast made thee a name, as at this day;

32:21 用神迹奇事和大能的手,并伸出来的膀臂与大可畏的事,领你的百姓以色列出了埃及。

And hast brought forth thy people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs, and with wonders, and with a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with great terror;

32:22 将这地赐给他们,就是你向他们列祖起誓应许赐给他们流奶与蜜之地。

And hast given them this land, which thou didst swear to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey;

32:23 他们进入这地得了为业,却不听从你的话,也不遵行你的律法。你一切所吩咐他们行的,他们一无所行,因此你使这一切的灾祸临到他们。

And they came in, and possessed it; but they obeyed not thy voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast caused all this evil to come upon them:

32:24 看哪,敌人已经来到,筑垒要攻取这城。城也因刀剑,饥荒,瘟疫交在攻城的迦勒底人手中。你所说的话都成就了,你也看见了。

Behold the mounts, they are come unto the city to take it; and the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans, that fight against it, because of the sword, and of the famine, and of the pestilence: and what thou hast spoken is come to pass; and, behold, thou seest it.

32:25 主耶和华阿,你对我说,要用银子为自己买那块地,又请见证人。其实这城已交在迦勒底人的手中了。

And thou hast said unto me, O Lord GOD, Buy thee the field for money, and take witnesses; for the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.

32:26 耶和华的话临到耶利米说,

Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying,

32:27 我是耶和华,是凡有血气者的神,岂有我难成的事吗。

Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?

32:28 耶和华如此说,我必将这城交付迦勒底人的手和巴比伦王尼布甲尼撒的手,他必攻取这城。

Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the Chaldeans, and into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and he shall take it:

32:29 攻城的迦勒底人必来放火焚烧这城和其中的房屋。在这房屋上,人曾向巴力烧香,向别神浇奠,惹我发怒。

And the Chaldeans, that fight against this city, shall come and set fire on this city, and burn it with the houses, upon whose roofs they have offered incense unto Baal, and poured out drink offerings unto other gods, to provoke me to anger.

32:30 以色列人和犹大人自从幼年以来,专行我眼中看为恶的事。以色列人尽以手所作的惹我发怒。这是耶和华说的。

For the children of Israel and the children of Judah have only done evil before me from their youth: for the children of Israel have only provoked me to anger with the work of their hands, saith the LORD.

32:31 这城自从建造的那日直到今日,常惹我的怒气和忿怒,使我将这城从我面前除掉。

For this city hath been to me as a provocation of mine anger and of my fury from the day that they built it even unto this day; that I should remove it from before my face,

32:32 是因以色列人和犹大人一切的邪恶,就是他们和他们的君王,首领,祭司,先知,并犹大的众人,以及耶路撒冷的居民所行的,惹我发怒。

Because of all the evil of the children of Israel and of the children of Judah, which they have done to provoke me to anger, they, their kings, their princes, their priests, and their prophets, and the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

32:33 他们以背向我,不以面向我。我虽从早起来教训他们,他们却不听从,不受教训,

And they have turned unto me the back, and not the face: though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them, yet they have not hearkened to receive instruction.

32:34 竟把可憎之物设立在称为我名下的殿中,污秽了这殿。

But they set their abominations in the house, which is called by my name, to defile it.

32:35 他们在欣嫩子谷建筑巴力的邱坛,好使自己的儿女经火归摩洛。他们行这可憎的事,使犹大陷在罪里,这并不是我所吩咐的,也不是我心所起的意。

And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.

32:36 现在论到这城,就是你们所说,已经因刀剑,饥荒,瘟疫交在巴比伦王手中的,耶和华以色列的神如此说,

And now therefore thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning this city, whereof ye say, It shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence;

32:37 我在怒气,忿怒,和大恼恨中,将以色列人赶到各国。日后我必从那里将他们招聚出来,领他们回到此地,使他们安然居住。

Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:

32:38 他们要作我的子民,我要作他们的神。

And they shall be my people, and I will be their God:

32:39 我要使他们彼此同心同道,好叫他们永远敬畏我,使他们和他们后世的子孙得福乐,

And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them:

32:40 又要与他们立永远的约,必随着他们施恩,并不离开他们,且使他们有敬畏我的心,不离开我。

And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me.

32:41 我必欢喜施恩与他们,要尽心尽意,诚诚实实将他们栽于此地。

Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul.

32:42 因为耶和华如此说,我怎样使这一切大祸临到这百姓,我也要照样使我所应许他们的一切福乐都临到他们。

For thus saith the LORD; Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them.

32:43 你们说,这地是荒凉,无人民,无牲畜,是交付迦勒底人手之地。日后在这境内,必有人置买田地。

And fields shall be bought in this land, whereof ye say, It is desolate without man or beast; it is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.

32:44 在便雅悯地,耶路撒冷四围的各处,犹大的城邑,山地的城邑,高原的城邑,并南地的城邑,人必用银子买田地,在契上画押,将契封缄,请出见证人,因为我必使被掳的人归回。这是耶和华的话。

Men shall buy fields for money, and subscribe evidences, and seal them, and take witnesses in the land of Benjamin, and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, and in the cities of the mountains, and in the cities of the valley, and in the cities of the south: for I will cause their captivity to return, saith the LORD.


32:1-12 神吩咐耶利米在耶路撒冷以外买一块田。当时耶路撒冷已被巴比伦围困了一年,耶利米竟在敌军占领区买田,实在是极不明智的投资,更何况他当时正身陷囹圄呢!然而,耶利米这个行动却表明了他的信心,他相信神必照著他的应许,使被掳的子民归回故土,并且重建耶路撒冷。

32:6-17 信靠不是轻而易举的。要耶利米公开购置敌军占领的田地不是件容易的事,但他却信靠神。要大卫相信他会成为君王实在不容易,甚至他受膏以后仍觉得难以置信,但他却信靠神(参撒上16-31章)。要摩西相信他和百姓可以一起离开埃及也不容易,甚至听完神在燃烧的荆棘中对他说的话,他都觉得难以相信,但是他却信靠神(参出3:1-4:20)。今天,要我们相信神能实践那些看来“完全不可能的”应许也一样不容易,但是我们必须信靠神。神既然曾在圣经里众多英雄人物的身上工作,只要我们肯,神也定会在我们身上工作。

32:17-25 耶利米买下那块地之后,开始有些怀疑自己所做的是不是明智。他在祷告中寻求摆脱自我怀疑的牢笼。耶利米在祷告中再次肯定神是创造主(32:17),是注目看透世人一切举动的有智慧的审判者(32:19)、拯救者(32:21)。神爱我们,了解我们的情况。如果自己怀疑神的智慧和他的神迹,或者考虑跟从主是否实际,那就得细心想想神是一位怎样的神,这样的思想和祈祷有助排解疑难,消除惊惧之心。

32:35 这些邱坛就是举行拜祭摩洛仪式中焚烧子女的地方,这部分是整个仪式中最重要和最荒诞的。

32:36-42 神会以他的权能令他的子民完成他的旨意。神不会让你为所欲为,要怎样就怎样,而是让你依他的心意而行。以色列人必须认识信靠神的意义在于一切以神的心意为依归。神要使他们“彼此同心同道”,对他专心一意(32:39)。我们也要竭力学习专心一意爱神胜过其他一切。

32:44 山地的城邑是指巴勒斯坦以西的地区,南地则是犹大南方一带。
