33:1 耶利米还囚在护卫兵的院内,耶和华的话第二次临到他说,

Moreover the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah the second time, while he was yet shut up in the court of the prison, saying,

33:2 成就的是耶和华,造作,为要建立的也是耶和华。耶和华是他的名。他如此说,

Thus saith the LORD the maker thereof, the LORD that formed it, to establish it; the LORD is his name;

33:3 你求告我,我就应允你,并将你所不知道,又大又难的事指示你。

Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

33:4 论到这城中的房屋和犹大王的宫室,就是拆毁为挡敌人高垒和刀剑的,耶和华以色列的神如此说,

For thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning the houses of this city, and concerning the houses of the kings of Judah, which are thrown down by the mounts, and by the sword;

33:5 人要与迦勒底人争战,正是拿死尸充满这房屋,就是我在怒气和忿怒中所杀的人,因他们的一切恶,我就掩面不顾这城。

They come to fight with the Chaldeans, but it is to fill them with the dead bodies of men, whom I have slain in mine anger and in my fury, and for all whose wickedness I have hid my face from this city.

33:6 看哪,我要使这城得以痊愈安舒,使城中的人得医治,又将丰盛的平安和诚实显明与他们。

Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.

33:7 我也要使犹大被掳的和以色列被掳的归回,并建立他们和起初一样。

And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first.

33:8 我要除净他们的一切罪,就是向我所犯的罪。又要赦免他们的一切罪,就是干犯我,违背我的罪。

And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me.

33:9 这城要在地上万国人面前使我得颂赞,得荣耀,名为可喜可乐之城。万国人因听见我向这城所赐的福乐,所施的恩惠平安,就惧怕战兢。

And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto it.

33:10 耶和华如此说,你们论这地方,说是荒废无人民无牲畜之地,但在这荒凉无人民无牲畜的犹大城邑和耶路撒冷的街上,

Thus saith the LORD; Again there shall be heard in this place, which ye say shall be desolate without man and without beast, even in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, that are desolate, without man, and without inhabitant, and without beast,

33:11 必再听见有欢喜和快乐的声音,新郎和新妇的声音,并听见有人说,要称谢万军之耶和华,因耶和华本为善。他的慈爱永远长存。又有奉感谢祭到耶和华殿中之人的声音。因为我必使这地被掳的人归回,和起初一样。这是耶和华说的。

The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the LORD. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the LORD.

33:12 万军之耶和华如此说,在这荒废无人民无牲畜之地,并其中所有的城邑,必再有牧人的住处。他们要使羊群躺卧在那里。

Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Again in this place, which is desolate without man and without beast, and in all the cities thereof, shall be an habitation of shepherds causing their flocks to lie down.

33:13 在山地的城邑,高原的城邑,南地的城邑,便雅悯地,耶路撒冷四围的各处,和犹大的城邑必再有羊群从数点的人手下经过。这是耶和华说的。

In the cities of the mountains, in the cities of the vale, and in the cities of the south, and in the land of Benjamin, and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, shall the flocks pass again under the hands of him that telleth them, saith the LORD.

33:14 耶和华说,日子将到,我应许以色列家和犹大家的恩言必然成就。

Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah.

33:15 当那日子,那时候,我必使大卫公义的苗裔长起来。他必在地上施行公平和公义。

In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.

33:16 在那日子犹大必得救,耶路撒冷必安然居住,他的名必称为耶和华我们的义。

In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.

33:17 因为耶和华如此说,大卫必永不断人坐在以色列家的宝座上。

For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;

33:18 祭司,利未人在我面前也不断人献燔祭,烧素祭,时常办理献祭的事。

Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.

33:19 耶和华的话临到耶利米说,

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

33:20 耶和华如此说,你们若能废弃我所立白日黑夜的约,使白日黑夜不按时轮转,

Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season;

33:21 就能废弃我与我仆人大卫所立的约,使他没有儿子在他的宝座上为王,并能废弃我与事奉我的祭司,利未人所立的约。

Then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers.

33:22 天上的万象不能数算,海边的尘沙也不能斗量。我必照样使我仆人大卫的后裔和事奉我的利未人多起来。

As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me.

33:23 耶和华的话临到耶利米说,

Moreover the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying,

33:24 你没有揣摩这百姓的话吗。他们说,耶和华所拣选的二族,他已经弃绝了。他们这样藐视我的百姓,以为不再成国。

Considerest thou not what this people have spoken, saying, The two families which the LORD hath chosen, he hath even cast them off? thus they have despised my people, that they should be no more a nation before them.

33:25 耶和华如此说,若是我立白日黑夜的约不能存住,若是我未曾安排天地的定例,

Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth;

33:26 我就弃绝雅各的后裔和我仆人大卫的后裔,不使大卫的后裔治理亚伯拉罕,以撒,雅各的后裔。因为我必使他们被掳的人归回,也必怜悯他们。

Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them.

耶利米书33参考

犹大人将会重归故土,是基于神的应许。若没有他的慈爱,在苦痛中便再没有盼望……
33:1-26 神将会重建耶路撒冷,不是由于百姓的呼求,而是因为这本是他永恒计划里的工作。巴比伦带来的灾难,一点也改变不了神对他百姓的旨意。虽然耶路撒冷会遭毁灭,但是必有重建的一天(这在犹太人被掳七十年后应验,并将在弥赛亚掌权那日子完全成就)。神的公义总是用他的慈爱表达出来。

祷告从不枉然,只是没有多少人珍惜祷告的机会。我是否主动把握向神求告的权利?
33:3 神向耶利米保证,只要他求告神,神就应允他(参诗145:18;赛58:9;太7:7)。神随时都在聆听我们祈祷,问题是你必须向他祷告,求他帮助。诚然,即使我们不向他求助,他也会照顾我们的需要。不过,我们向他祈求,就是承认只有他才是神,我们凭著自己的力量根本不能完成属于神能力范围内的事。祈求他的时候,我们必须带著谦卑的心,放下自己的意愿和忧虑,并且一心遵从他的旨意。

大卫家的约,最终成就在基督的身上……
33:15-16 这两节经文指的是基督第一次及第二次的降临,他第一次来到世间为要在信徒心中掌王权居首位,而第二次再来时,他就会在全地施行公义。基督就是“大卫公义的苗裔”,也只有他是满足神的心意的人。

君王、祭司永不断……符合这条件的只有一位──
33:18 基督既履行君王之职,也履行祭司之任,成为百姓与神之间的中保,维系著神与子民相交的关系(参22:30的注释)。这节并不是说真的要祭司去办理献祭的事,因为现在已无需再献祭了(参来7:24-25)。基督就是我们的大祭司,所有信徒都是神的祭司,所以我们可以直接来到神的面前。
