第三十四章

 1 列国阿,要近前来听。众民哪,要侧耳而听。地和其上所充满的,世界和其中一切所出的,都应当听。 
 2 因为耶和华向万国发忿恨,向他们的全军发烈怒,将他们灭尽,交出他们受杀戮。 
 3 被杀的必然抛弃,尸首臭气上腾。诸山被他们的血融化。 
 4 天上的万象都要消没,天被卷起,好像书卷。其上的万象要残败,像葡萄树的叶子残败,又像无花果树的叶子残败一样 
 5 因为我的刀在天上已经喝足。这刀必临到以东,和我所咒诅的民,要施行审判。 
 6 耶和华的刀满了血,用脂油和羊羔公山羊的血,并公绵羊腰子的脂油滋润的。因为耶和华在波斯拉有献祭的事,在以东地大行杀戮。 
 7 野牛,牛犊,和公牛,要一同下来。他们的地喝醉了血,他们的尘土因脂油肥润。 
 8 因耶和华有报仇之日,为锡安的争辩,有报应之年。 
 9 以东的河水要变为石油,尘埃要变为硫磺,地土成为烧着的石油。 
 10 昼夜总不熄灭,烟气永远上腾,必世世代代成为荒废,永永远远无人经过。 
 11 鹈鹕,箭猪,却要得为业。猫头鹰,乌鸦,要住在其间。耶和华必将空虚的准绳,混沌的线铊,拉在其上。 
 12 以东人要召贵胄来治国,那里却无一个。首领也都归于无有。 
 13 以东的宫殿要长荆棘,保障要长蒺藜和刺草。要作野狗的住处,鸵鸟的居所。 
 14 旷野的走兽,要和豺狼相遇。野山羊,要与伴偶对叫。夜间的怪物,必在那里栖身,自找安歇之处。 
 15 箭蛇要在那里作窝,下蛋,抱蛋,生子,聚子在其影下。鹞鹰,各与伴偶聚集在那里。 
 16 你们要查考宣读耶和华的书。这都无一缺少,无一没有伴偶,因为我的口已经吩咐,他的灵将他们聚集。 
 17 他也为他们拈阄,又亲手用准绳给他们分地,他们必永得为业,世世代代住在其间。

Chapter 34

1 Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.

2 For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.

3 Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.

4 And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.

5 For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.

6 The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.

7 And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.

8 For it is the day of the LORD's vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.

9 And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.

10 It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.

11 But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness.

12 They shall call the nobles thereof to the kingdom, but none shall be there, and all her princes shall be nothing.

13 And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, and a court for owls.

14 The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest.

15 There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with her mate.

16 Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.

17 And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it unto them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein.

第三十五章

 1 旷野和干旱之地,必然欢喜。沙漠也必快乐。又像玫瑰开花。 
 2 必开花繁盛,乐上加乐,而且欢呼。利巴嫩的荣耀,并迦密与沙仑的华美,必赐给他。人必看见耶和华的荣耀,我们神的华美。 
 3 你们要使软弱的手坚壮,无力的膝稳固。 
 4 对胆怯的人说,你们要刚强,不要惧怕。看哪,你们的神必来报仇,必来施行极大的报应,他必来拯救你们。 
 5 那时瞎子的眼必睁开,聋子的耳必开通。 
 6 那时瘸子必跳跃像鹿,哑吧的舌头必能歌唱。在旷野必有水发出,在沙漠必有河涌流。 
 7 发光的沙,(或作蜃楼)要变为水池,干渴之地,要变为泉源。在野狗躺卧之处,必有青草,芦苇,和蒲草。 
 8 在那里必有一条大道,称为圣路。污秽人不得经过,必专为赎民行走,行路的人虽愚昧,也不至失迷。 
 9 在那里必没有狮子,猛兽也不登这路,在那里都遇不见。只有赎民在那里行走。 
 10 并且耶和华救赎的民必归回,歌唱来到锡安。永乐必归到他们的头上,他们必得着欢喜快乐,忧愁叹息尽都逃避。

Chapter 35

1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.

2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.

3 Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.

4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.

5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.

6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.

7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.

8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.

9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:

10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

第三十六章

 1 希西家王十四年,亚述王西拿基立,上来攻击犹大的一切坚固城,将城攻取。 
 2 亚述王从拉吉差遣拉伯沙基,率领大军,往耶路撒冷到希西家王那里去。他就站在上池的水沟旁,在漂布地的大路上。 
 3 于是希勒家的儿子家宰以利亚敬,并书记舍伯那,和亚萨的儿子史官约亚,出来见拉伯沙基。 
 4 拉伯沙基对他们说,你们去告诉希西家说,亚述大王如此说,你所倚靠的有什么可仗赖的呢? 
 5 你说,有打仗的计谋和能力。我看不过是虚话,你到底倚靠谁,才背叛我呢? 
 6 看哪,你所倚靠的埃及,是那压伤的苇杖,人若靠这杖,就必刺透他的手。埃及王法老向一切倚靠他的人,也是这样。 
 7 你若对我说,我们倚靠耶和华我们的神。希西家岂不是将神的丘坛,和祭坛废去,且对犹大和耶路撒冷的人说,你们当在这坛前敬拜吗? 
 8 现在你把当头给我主亚述王,我给你二千匹马,看你这一面骑马的人彀不彀。 
 9 若不然,怎能打败我主臣仆中最小的军长呢?你竟倚靠埃及的战车马兵吗? 
 10 现在我上来攻击毁灭这地,岂没有耶和华的意思吗?耶和华吩咐我说,你上去攻击毁灭这地吧。 
 11 以利亚敬,舍伯那,约亚,对拉伯沙基说,求你用亚兰言语和仆人说话,因为我们懂得,不要用犹大言语和我们说话达到城上百姓的耳中。 
 12 拉伯沙基说,我主差遣我来,岂是单对你和你的主说这些话吗?不也是对这些坐在城上,要与你们一同吃自己粪喝自己尿的人说吗? 
 13 于是拉伯沙基站着,用犹大言语,大声喊着说,你们当听亚述大王的话。 
 14 王如此说,你们不要被希西家欺哄了,因他不能拯救你们。 
 15 也不要听希西家使你们倚靠耶和华说,耶和华必要拯救我们,这城必不交在亚述王的手中。 
 16 不要听希西家的话,因亚述王如此说,你们要与我和好,出来投降我,各人就可以吃自己葡萄树和无花果树的果子,喝自己井里的水。 
 17 等我来领你们到一个地方,与你们本地一样,就是有五谷和新酒之地,有粮食和葡萄园之地。 
 18 你们要谨防,恐怕希西家劝导你们说,耶和华必拯救我们。列国的神有哪一个救他本国脱离亚述王的手呢? 
 19 哈马和亚珥拔的神在哪里呢?西法瓦音的神在哪里呢?他们曾救撒玛利亚脱离我的手吗? 
 20 这些国的神,有谁曾救自己的国脱离我的手呢?难道耶和华能救耶路撒冷脱离我的手吗? 
 21 百姓静默不言,并不回答一句,因为王曾吩咐说,不要回答他。 
 22 当下希勒家的儿子家宰以利亚敬,和书记舍伯那,并亚萨的儿子史官约亚,都撕裂衣服,来到希西家那里,将拉伯沙基的话告诉了他。

Chapter 36

1 Now it came to pass in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah, that Sennacherib king of Assyria came up against all the defenced cities of Judah, and took them.

2 And the king of Assyria sent Rabshakeh from Lachish to Jerusalem unto king Hezekiah with a great army. And he stood by the conduit of the upper pool in the highway of the fuller's field.

3 Then came forth unto him Eliakim, Hilkiah's son, which was over the house, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah, Asaph's son, the recorder.

4 And Rabshakeh said unto them, Say ye now to Hezekiah, Thus saith the great king, the king of Assyria, What confidence is this wherein thou trustest?

5 I say, sayest thou, (but they are but vain words) I have counsel and strength for war: now on whom dost thou trust, that thou rebellest against me?

6 Lo, thou trustest in the staff of this broken reed, on Egypt; whereon if a man lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it: so is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all that trust in him.

7 But if thou say to me, We trust in the LORD our God: is it not he, whose high places and whose altars Hezekiah hath taken away, and said to Judah and to Jerusalem, Ye shall worship before this altar?

8 Now therefore give pledges, I pray thee, to my master the king of Assyria, and I will give thee two thousand horses, if thou be able on thy part to set riders upon them.

9 How then wilt thou turn away the face of one captain of the least of my master's servants, and put thy trust on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen?

10 And am I now come up without the LORD against this land to destroy it? the LORD said unto me, Go up against this land, and destroy it.

11 Then said Eliakim and Shebna and Joah unto Rabshakeh, Speak, I pray thee, unto thy servants in the Syrian language; for we understand it: and speak not to us in the Jews' language, in the ears of the people that are on the wall.

12 But Rabshakeh said, Hath my master sent me to thy master and to thee to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men that sit upon the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?

13 Then Rabshakeh stood, and cried with a loud voice in the Jews' language, and said, Hear ye the words of the great king, the king of Assyria.

14 Thus saith the king, Let not Hezekiah deceive you: for he shall not be able to deliver you.

15 Neither let Hezekiah make you trust in the LORD, saying, The LORD will surely deliver us: this city shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.

16 Hearken not to Hezekiah: for thus saith the king of Assyria, Make an agreement with me by a present, and come out to me: and eat ye every one of his vine, and every one of his fig tree, and drink ye every one the waters of his own cistern;

17 Until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of corn and wine, a land of bread and vineyards.

18 Beware lest Hezekiah persuade you, saying, the LORD will deliver us. Hath any of the gods of the nations delivered his land out of the hand of the king of Assyria?

19 Where are the gods of Hamath and Arphad? where are the gods of Sepharvaim? and have they delivered Samaria out of my hand?

20 Who are they among all the gods of these lands, that have delivered their land out of my hand, that the LORD should deliver Jerusalem out of my hand?

21 But they held their peace, and answered him not a word: for the king's commandment was, saying, Answer him not.

22 Then came Eliakim, the son of Hilkiah, that was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah, the son of Asaph, the recorder, to Hezekiah with their clothes rent, and told him the words of Rabshakeh.

第三十七章

 1 希西家王听见,就撕裂衣服,披上麻布,进了耶和华的殿。 
 2 使家宰以利亚敬,和书记舍伯那,并祭司中的长老,都披上麻布,去见亚摩斯的儿子先知以赛亚。 
 3 对他说,希西家如此说,今日是急难,责罚,凌辱的日子,就如妇人将要生产婴孩,却没有力量生产。 
 4 或者耶和华你的神,听见拉伯沙基的话,就是他主人亚述王打发他来辱骂永生神的话。耶和华你的神,听见这话就发斥责,故此求你为余剩的民,扬声祷告。 
 5 希西家王的臣仆,就去见以赛亚, 
 6 以赛亚对他们说,要这样对你们的主人说,耶和华如此说,你听见亚述王的仆人亵渎我的话,不要惧怕。 
 7 我必惊动(原文作使灵进入)他的心,他要听见风声就归回本地,我必使他在那里倒在刀下。 
 8 拉伯沙基回去,正遇见亚述王攻打立拿。原来他早听见亚述王拔营离开拉吉。 
 9 亚述王听见人论古实王特哈加说,他出来要与你争战。亚述王一听见,就打发使者去见希西家,吩咐他们说。 
 10 你们对犹大王希西家如此说,不要听你所倚靠的神欺哄你,说,耶路撒冷必不交在亚述王的手中。 
 11 你总听说亚述诸王向列国所行的,乃是尽行灭绝,难道你还能得救吗? 
 12 我列祖所毁灭的,就是歌散,哈兰,利色,和属提拉撒的伊甸人。这些国的神,何曾拯救这些国呢? 
 13 哈马的王,亚珥拔的王,西法瓦音城的王,希拿和以瓦的王,都在哪里呢? 
 14 希西家从使者手里接过书信来,看完了,就上耶和华的殿,将书信在耶和华面前展开。 
 15 希西家向耶和华祷告说, 
 16 坐在二基路伯上万军之耶和华以色列的神阿,你,惟有你,是天下万国的神。你曾创造天地。 
 17 耶和华阿,求你侧耳而听。耶和华阿,求你睁眼而看。要听西拿基立的一切话,他是打发使者来辱骂永生神的。 
 18 耶和华阿,亚述诸王果然使列国,和列国之地变为荒凉。 
 19 将列国的神像都扔在火里,因为它本不是神,乃是人手所造的,是木头,石头的,所以灭绝它。 
 20 耶和华我们的神阿,现在求你救我们脱离亚述王的手,使天下万国都知道惟有你是耶和华。 
 21 亚摩斯的儿子以赛亚,就打发人去见希西家说,耶和华以色列的神如此说,你既然求我攻击亚述王西拿基立, 
 22 所以耶和华论他这样说,锡安的处女藐视你,嗤笑你,耶路撒冷的女子向你摇头。 
 23 你辱骂谁?亵渎谁?扬起声来,高举眼目攻击谁呢?乃是攻击以色列的圣者。 
 24 你借你的臣仆辱骂主,说,我率领许多战车上山顶,到利巴嫩极深之处,我要砍伐其中高大的香柏树,和佳美的松树,我必上极高之处,进入肥田的树林。 
 25 我已经挖井喝水,我必用脚掌踏干埃及的一切河。 
 26 耶和华说,你岂没有听见我早先所作的古时所立的吗?现在借你使坚固城荒废,变为乱堆。 
 27 所以其中的居民力量甚小,惊惶羞愧。他们像野草,像青菜,如房顶上的草,又如田间未长成的禾稼。 
 28 你坐下,你出去,你进来,你向我发烈怒,我都知道。 
 29 因你向我发烈怒,又因你狂傲的话达到我耳中,我就要用钩子钩上你的鼻子,把嚼环放在你口里,使你从原路转回去。 
 30 以色列人哪,我赐你们一个证据,你们今年要吃自生的,明年也要吃自长的,至于后年,你们要耕种收割,栽植葡萄园,吃其中的果子。 
 31 犹大家所逃脱余剩的,仍要往下扎根,向上结果。 
 32 必有余剩的民,从耶路撒冷而出,必有逃脱的人,从锡安山而来。万军之耶和华的热心必成就这事。 
 33 所以耶和华论亚述王如此说,他必不得来到这城,也不在这里射箭,不得拿盾牌到城前,也不筑垒攻城。 
 34 他从那条路来,必从那条路回去,必不得来到这城。这是耶和华说的。 
 35 因我为自己的缘故,又为我仆人大卫的缘故,必保护拯救这城。 
 36 耶和华的使者出去,在亚述营中杀了十八万五千人。清早有人起来一看,都是死尸了。 
 37 亚述王西拿基立,就拔营回去,住在尼尼微。 
 38 一日在他的神,尼斯洛庙里叩拜,他儿子亚得米勒,和沙利色,用刀杀了他,就逃到亚拉腊地。他儿子以撒哈顿接续他作王。

Chapter 37

1 And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the LORD.

2 And he sent Eliakim, who was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests covered with sackcloth, unto Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.

3 And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and of blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.

4 It may be the LORD thy God will hear the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God, and will reprove the words which the LORD thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that is left.

5 So the servants of king Hezekiah came to Isaiah.

6 And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say unto your master, Thus saith the LORD, Be not afraid of the words that thou hast heard, wherewith the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.

7 Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.

8 So Rabshakeh returned, and found the king of Assyria warring against Libnah: for he had heard that he was departed from Lachish.

9 And he heard say concerning Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, He is come forth to make war with thee. And when he heard it, he sent messengers to Hezekiah, saying,

10 Thus shall ye speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy God, in whom thou trustest, deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.

11 Behold, thou hast heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands by destroying them utterly; and shalt thou be delivered?

12 Have the gods of the nations delivered them which my fathers have destroyed, as Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph, and the children of Eden which were in Telassar?

13 Where is the king of Hamath, and the king of Arphad, and the king of the city of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivah?

14 And Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up unto the house of the LORD, and spread it before the LORD.

15 And Hezekiah prayed unto the LORD, saying,

16 O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou hast made heaven and earth.

17 Incline thine ear, O LORD, and hear; open thine eyes, O LORD, and see: and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent to reproach the living God.

18 Of a truth, LORD, the kings of Assyria have laid waste all the nations, and their countries,

19 And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of men's hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.

20 Now therefore, O LORD our God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the LORD, even thou only.

21 Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent unto Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Whereas thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria:

22 This is the word which the LORD hath spoken concerning him; The virgin, the daughter of Zion, hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee.

23 Whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed? and against whom hast thou exalted thy voice, and lifted up thine eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel.

24 By thy servants hast thou reproached the Lord, and hast said, By the multitude of my chariots am I come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon; and I will cut down the tall cedars thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and I will enter into the height of his border, and the forest of his Carmel.

25 I have digged, and drunk water; and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the rivers of the besieged places.

26 Hast thou not heard long ago, how I have done it; and of ancient times, that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste defenced cities into ruinous heaps.

27 Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded: they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the housetops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.

28 But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy coming in, and thy rage against me.

29 Because thy rage against me, and thy tumult, is come up into mine ears, therefore will I put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.

30 And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such as groweth of itself; and the second year that which springeth of the same: and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit thereof.

31 And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward:

32 For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the LORD of hosts shall do this.

33 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shields, nor cast a bank against it.

34 By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the LORD.

35 For I will defend this city to save it for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.

36 Then the angel of the LORD went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

37 So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.

38 And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Armenia: and Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead.

第三十八章

 1 那时希西家病得要死,亚摩斯的儿子先知以赛亚去见他,对他说,耶和华如此说,你当留遗命与你的家,因为你必死不能活了。 
 2 希西家就转脸朝墙,祷告耶和华说, 
 3 耶和华阿,求你记念我在你面前怎样存完全的心,按诚实行事,又作你眼中所看为善的。希西家就痛哭了。 
 4 耶和华的话临到以赛亚说, 
 5 你去告诉希西家说,耶和华你祖大卫的神如此说,我听见了你的祷告,看见了你的眼泪,我必加增你十五年的寿数。 
 6 并且我要救你和这城脱离亚述王的手,也要保护这城。 
 7 我耶和华必成就我所说的,我先给你一个兆头。 
 8 就是叫亚哈斯的日晷,向前进的日影往后退十度。于是前进的日影,果然在日晷上往后退了十度。 
 9 犹大王希西家患病,已经痊愈,就作诗说, 
 10 我说,正在我中年(或作晌午)之日,必进入阴间的门。我余剩的年岁不得享受。 
 11 我说,我必不得见耶和华,就是在活人之地不见耶和华。我与世上的居民不再见面。 
 12 我的住处被迁去离开我,好像牧人的帐棚一样。我将性命卷起,像织布的卷布一样。耶和华必将我从机头剪断,从早到晚,他要使我完结。 
 13 我使自己安静直到天亮。他像狮子折断我一切的骨头,从早到晚,他要使我完结。 
 14 我像燕子呢喃。像白鹤鸣叫。又像鸽子哀鸣。我因仰观,眼睛困倦。耶和华阿,我受欺压。求你为我作保。 
 15 我可说什么呢?他应许我的,也给我成就了。我因心里的苦楚,在一生的年日,必悄悄而行。 
 16 主阿,人得存活,乃在乎此。我灵存活,也全在此。所以求你使我痊愈,仍然存活。 
 17 看哪,我受大苦,本为使我得平安,你因爱我的灵魂,(或作生命)便救我脱离败坏的坑。因为你将我一切的罪,扔在你的背后。 
 18 原来阴间不能称谢你,死亡不能颂扬你,下坑的人不能盼望你的诚实。 
 19 只有活人,活人必称谢你,像我今日称谢你一样。为父的,必使儿女知道你的诚实。 
 20 耶和华肯救我,所以我们要一生一世,在耶和华殿中用丝弦的乐器,唱我的诗歌。 
 21 以赛亚说,当取一块无花果饼来,贴在疮上,王必痊愈。 
 22 希西家问说,我能上耶和华的殿,有什么兆头呢?

Chapter 38

1 In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came unto him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order: for thou shalt die, and not live.

2 Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed unto the LORD,

3 And said, Remember now, O LORD, I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.

4 Then came the word of the LORD to Isaiah, saying,

5 Go, and say to Hezekiah, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will add unto thy days fifteen years.

6 And I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria: and I will defend this city.

7 And this shall be a sign unto thee from the LORD, that the LORD will do this thing that he hath spoken;

8 Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down.

9 The writing of Hezekiah king of Judah, when he had been sick, and was recovered of his sickness:

10 I said in the cutting off of my days, I shall go to the gates of the grave: I am deprived of the residue of my years.

11 I said, I shall not see the LORD, even the LORD, in the land of the living: I shall behold man no more with the inhabitants of the world.

12 Mine age is departed, and is removed from me as a shepherd's tent: I have cut off like a weaver my life: he will cut me off with pining sickness: from day even to night wilt thou make an end of me.

13 I reckoned till morning, that, as a lion, so will he break all my bones: from day even to night wilt thou make an end of me.

14 Like a crane or a swallow, so did I chatter: I did mourn as a dove: mine eyes fail with looking upward: O LORD, I am oppressed; undertake for me.

15 What shall I say? he hath both spoken unto me, and himself hath done it: I shall go softly all my years in the bitterness of my soul.

16 O LORD, by these things men live, and in all these things is the life of my spirit: so wilt thou recover me, and make me to live.

17 Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption: for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back.

18 For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.

19 The living, the living, he shall praise thee, as I do this day: the father to the children shall make known thy truth.

20 The LORD was ready to save me: therefore we will sing my songs to the stringed instruments all the days of our life in the house of the LORD.

21 For Isaiah had said, Let them take a lump of figs, and lay it for a plaister upon the boil, and he shall recover.

22 Hezekiah also had said, What is the sign that I shall go up to the house of the LORD?

第三十九章

 1 那时巴比伦王巴拉但的儿子米罗达巴拉但,听见希西家病而痊愈,就送书信和礼物给他。 
 2 希西家喜欢见使者,就把自己宝库的金子,银子,香料,贵重的膏油,和他武库的一切军器,并所有的财宝都给他们看。他家中和全国之内,希西家没有一样不给他们看的。 
 3 于是先知以赛亚来见希西家王,问他说,这些人说什么?他们从哪里来见你?希西家说,他们从远方的巴比伦来见我。 
 4 以赛亚说,他们在你家里看见了什么?希西家说,凡我家中所有的,他们都看见了,我财宝中没有一样不给他们看的。 
 5 以赛亚对希西家说,你要听万军之耶和华的话。 
 6 日子必到,凡你家里所有的,并你列祖积蓄到如今的,都要被掳到巴比伦去,不留下一样,这是耶和华说的。 
 7 并且从你本身所生的众子,其中必有被掳去,在巴比伦王宫里当太监的。 
 8 希西家对以赛亚说,你所说耶和华的话甚好,因为在我的年日中,必有太平和稳固的景况。

Chapter 39

1 At that time Merodachbaladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present to Hezekiah: for he had heard that he had been sick, and was recovered.

2 And Hezekiah was glad of them, and shewed them the house of his precious things, the silver, and the gold, and the spices, and the precious ointment, and all the house of his armour, and all that was found in his treasures: there was nothing in his house, nor in all his dominion, that Hezekiah shewed them not.

3 Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah, and said unto him, What said these men? and from whence came they unto thee? And Hezekiah said, They are come from a far country unto me, even from Babylon.

4 Then said he, What have they seen in thine house? And Hezekiah answered, All that is in mine house have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shewed them.

5 Then said Isaiah to Hezekiah, Hear the word of the LORD of hosts:

6 Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store until this day, shall be carried to Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the LORD.

7 And of thy sons that shall issue from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall they take away; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.

8 Then said Hezekiah to Isaiah, Good is the word of the LORD which thou hast spoken. He said moreover, For there shall be peace and truth in my days.

第四十章

 1 你们的神说,你们要安慰,安慰我的百姓。 
 2 要对耶路撒冷说安慰的话,又向他宣告说,他争战的日子已满了,他的罪孽赦免了,他为自己的一切罪,从耶和华手中加倍受罚。 
 3 有人声喊着说,在旷野预备耶和华的路,(或作在旷野有人声喊着说,当预备耶和华的路),在沙漠地修平我们神的道。 
 4 一切山洼都要填满,大小山冈都要削平,高高低低的要改为平坦,崎崎岖岖的必成为平原。 
 5 耶和华的荣耀必然显现,凡有血气的,必一同看见,因为这是耶和华亲口说的。 
 6 有人声说,你喊叫吧。有一个说,我喊叫什么呢?说,凡有血气的,尽都如草,他的美容,都像野地的花。 
 7 草必枯干,花必凋残,因为耶和华的气吹在其上。百姓诚然是草。 
 8 草必枯干,花必凋残,惟有我们神的话,必永远立定。 
 9 报好信息给锡安的阿,你要登高山。报好信息给耶路撒冷的阿,你要极力扬声。扬声不要惧怕,对犹大的城邑说,看哪,你们的神。 
 10 主耶和华必像大能者临到,他的膀臂必为他掌权。他的赏赐在他那里,他的报应在他面前。 
 11 他必像牧人牧养自己的羊群,用膀臂聚集羊羔抱在怀中,慢慢引导那乳养小羊的。 
 12 谁曾用手心量诸水,用手虎口量苍天,用升斗盛大地的尘土,用秤称山岭,用天平平岗陵呢? 
 13 谁曾测度耶和华的心(或作谁曾指示耶和华的灵),或作他的谋士指教他呢? 
 14 他与谁商议,谁教导他,谁将公平的路指示他,又将知识教训他,将通达的道指教他呢? 
 15 看哪,万民都像水桶的一滴,又算如天平上的微尘。他举起众海岛,好像极微之物。 
 16 利巴嫩的树林不够当柴烧,其中的走兽也不够作燔祭。 
 17 万民在他面前好像虚无,被他看为不及虚无,乃为虚空。 
 18 你们究竟将谁比神,用什么形像与神比较呢? 
 19 偶像是匠人铸造,银匠用金包裹,为它铸造银链。 
 20 穷乏献不起这样供物的,就拣选不能朽坏的树木,为自己寻找巧匠,立起不能摇动的偶像。 
 21 你们岂不曾知道吗?你们岂不曾听见吗?从起初岂没有人告诉你们吗?自从立地的根基,你们岂没有明白吗? 
 22 神坐在地球大圈之上,地上的居民好像蝗虫。他铺张穹苍如幔子,展开诸天如可住的帐棚。 
 23 他使君王归于虚无,使地上的审判官成为虚空。 
 24 他们是刚才栽上,(刚才或作不曾下同)刚才种上,根也刚才扎在地里,他一吹在其上,便都枯干,旋风将他们吹去,像碎秸一样。 
 25 那圣者说,你们将谁比我,叫他与我相等呢? 
 26 你们向上举目,看谁创造这万象,按数目领出,他一一称其名。因他的权能,又因他的大能大力,连一个都不缺。 
 27 雅各阿,你为何说,我的道路向耶和华隐藏?以色列阿,你为何言,我的冤屈神并不查问? 
 28 你岂不曾知道吗?你岂不曾听见吗?永在的神耶和华,创造地极的主,并不疲乏,也不困倦。他的智慧无法测度。 
 29 疲乏的,他赐能力。软弱的,他加力量。 
 30 就是少年人也要疲乏困倦,强壮的也必全然跌倒。 
 31 但那等候耶和华的,必从新得力,他们必如鹰展翅上腾,他们奔跑却不困倦,行走却不疲乏。

Chapter 40

1 Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.

2 Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD's hand double for all her sins.

3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:

5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

6 The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:

7 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass.

8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

9 O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!

10 Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

12 Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?

13 Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him?

14 With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?

15 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.

16 And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering.

17 All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.

18 To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?

19 The workman melteth a graven image, and the goldsmith spreadeth it over with gold, and casteth silver chains.

20 He that is so impoverished that he hath no oblation chooseth a tree that will not rot; he seeketh unto him a cunning workman to prepare a graven image, that shall not be moved.

21 Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?

22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:

23 That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.

24 Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.

25 To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.

26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.

27 Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?

28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.

29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

第四十一章

 1 众海岛阿,当在我面前静默,众民当从新得力,都要近前来才可以说话。我们可以彼此辩论。 
 2 谁从东方兴起一人,凭公义召他来到脚前呢?耶和华将列国交给他,使他管辖君王,把他们如灰尘交与他的刀,如风吹的碎秸交与他的弓。 
 3 他追赶他们,走他所未走的道,坦然前行。 
 4 谁行作成就这事,从起初宣召历代呢?就是我耶和华,我是首先的。也与末后的同在。 
 5 海岛看见就都害怕,地极也都战兢,就近前来。 
 6 他们各人帮助邻舍,各人对弟兄说,壮胆吧。 
 7 木匠勉励银匠,用锤打光的勉励打砧的,论焊工说,焊得好。又用钉子钉稳,免得偶像动摇。 
 8 惟你以色列我的仆人,雅各我所拣选的,我朋友亚伯拉罕的后裔, 
 9 你是我从地极所领(原文作抓)来的,从地角所召来的,且对你说,你是我的仆人,我拣选你并不弃绝你。 
 10 你不要害怕,因为我与你同在。不要惊惶,因为我是你的神。我必坚固你,我必帮助你,我必用我公义的右手扶持你。 
 11 凡向你发怒的,必都抱愧蒙羞。与你相争的,必如无有,并要灭亡。 
 12 与你争竞的,你要找他们也找不着。与你争战的,必如无有,成为虚无。 
 13 因为我耶和华你的神,必搀扶你的右手,对你说,不要害怕,我必帮助你。 
 14 你这虫雅各,和你们以色列人,不要害怕。耶和华说,我必帮助你。你的救赎主,就是以色列的圣者。 
 15 看哪,我已使你成为有快齿打粮的新器具,你要把山岭打得粉碎,使冈陵如同糠秕。 
 16 你要把他簸扬,风要吹去,旋风要把他刮散;你倒要以耶和华为喜乐,以以色列的圣者为夸耀。 
 17 困苦穷乏人寻求水却没有,他们因口渴,舌头干燥。我耶和华必应允他们,我以色列的神必不离弃他们。 
 18 我要在净光的高处开江河,在谷中开泉源,我要使沙漠变为水池,使干地变为涌泉。 
 19 我要在旷野种上香柏树,皂荚树,番石榴树,和野橄榄树。我在沙漠要把松树,杉树,并黄杨树,一同栽植。 
 20 好叫人看见,知道,思想,明白,这是耶和华的手所作的,是以色列的圣者所造的。 
 21 耶和华对假神说,你们要呈上你们的案件,雅各的君说,你们要声明你们确实的理由。 
 22 可以声明,指示我们将来必遇的事,说明先前的是什么事,好叫我们思索,得知事的结局,或者把将来的事指示我们。 
 23 要说明后来的事,好叫我们知道你们是神,你们或降福,或降祸,使我们惊奇,一同观看。 
 24 看哪,你们属乎虚无,你们的作为也属乎虚空。那选择你们的是可憎恶的。 
 25 我从北方兴起一人,他是求告我名的,从日出之地而来。他必临到掌权的,好像临到灰泥,仿佛窑匠踹泥一样。 
 26 谁从起初指明这事,使我们知道呢?谁从先前说明,使我们说,他不错呢?谁也没有指明,谁也没有说明。谁也没有听见你们的话。 
 27 我首先对锡安说,看哪,我要将一位报好信息的赐给耶路撒冷。 
 28 我看的时候并没有人,我问的时候他们中间也没有谋士,可以回答一句。 
 29 看哪,他们和他们的工作,都是虚空,且是虚无。他们所铸的偶像都是风,都是虚的。

Chapter 41

1 Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment.

2 Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow.

3 He pursued them, and passed safely; even by the way that he had not gone with his feet.

4 Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he.

5 The isles saw it, and feared; the ends of the earth were afraid, drew near, and came.

6 They helped every one his neighbour; and every one said to his brother, Be of good courage.

7 So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith, and he that smootheth with the hammer him that smote the anvil, saying, It is ready for the sodering: and he fastened it with nails, that it should not be moved.

8 But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.

9 Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.

10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

11 Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.

12 Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.

13 For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.

14 Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.

15 Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff.

16 Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the LORD, and shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel.

17 When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.

18 I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.

19 I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together:

20 That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.

21 Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob.

22 Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.

23 Shew the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods: yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together.

24 Behold, ye are of nothing, and your work of nought: an abomination is he that chooseth you.

25 I have raised up one from the north, and he shall come: from the rising of the sun shall he call upon my name: and he shall come upon princes as upon morter, and as the potter treadeth clay.

26 Who hath declared from the beginning, that we may know? and beforetime, that we may say, He is righteous? yea, there is none that sheweth, yea, there is none that declareth, yea, there is none that heareth your words.

27 The first shall say to Zion, Behold, behold them: and I will give to Jerusalem one that bringeth good tidings.

28 For I beheld, and there was no man; even among them, and there was no counsellor, that, when I asked of them, could answer a word.

29 Behold, they are all vanity; their works are nothing: their molten images are wind and confusion.

第四十二章

 1 看哪,我的仆人,我所扶持,所拣选,心里所喜悦的,我已将我的灵赐给他,他必将公理传给外邦。 
 2 他不喧嚷,不扬声,也不使街上听见他的声音。 
 3 压伤的芦苇,他不折断。将残的灯火,他不吹灭。他凭真实将公理传开。 
 4 他不灰心,也不丧胆,直到他在地上设立公理。海岛都等候他的训诲。 
 5 创造诸天,铺张穹苍,将地和地所出的一并铺开,赐气息给地上的众人,又赐灵性给行在其上之人的神耶和华,他如此说, 
 6 我耶和华凭公义召你,必搀扶你的手,保守你,使你作众民的中保,(中保原文作约)作外邦人的光, 
 7 开瞎子的眼,领被囚的出牢狱,领坐黑暗的出监牢。 
 8 我是耶和华,这是我的名。我必不将我的荣耀归给假神,也不将我的称赞归给雕刻的偶像。 
 9 看哪,先前的事已经成就,现在我将新事说明,这事未发以先,我就说给你们听。 
 10 航海的,和海中所有的,海岛,和其上的居民,都当向耶和华唱新歌,从地极赞美他。 
 11 旷野和其中的城邑,并基达人居住的村庄,都当扬声。西拉的居民当欢呼,在山顶上呐喊。 
 12 他们当将荣耀归给耶和华,在海岛中传扬他的颂赞。 
 13 耶和华必像勇士出去,必像战士激动热心,要喊叫,大声呐喊,要用大力攻击仇敌。 
 14 我许久闭口不言,静默不语,现在我要喊叫像产难的妇人,我要急气而喘哮。 
 15 我要使大山小冈变为荒场,使其上的花草都枯干,我要使江河变为洲岛,使水池都干涸。 
 16 我要引瞎子行不认识的道,领他们走不知道的路。在他们面前使黑暗变为光明,使弯曲变为平直。这些事我都要行,并不离弃他们。 
 17 倚靠雕刻的偶像,对铸造的偶像说,你是我们的神,这等人要退后,全然蒙羞。 
 18 你们这耳聋的听吧。你们这眼瞎的看吧。使你们能看见。 
 19 谁比我的仆人眼瞎呢?谁比我差遣的使者耳聋呢?谁瞎眼像那与我和好的,谁瞎眼像耶和华的仆人呢? 
 20 你看见许多事却不领会。耳朵开通却不听见。 
 21 耶和华因自己公义的缘故,喜欢使律法(或作训诲)为大,为尊。 
 22 但这百姓是被抢被夺的,都牢笼在坑中,隐藏在狱里,他们作掠物,无人拯救,作掳物,无人说交还。 
 23 你们中间谁肯侧耳听此,谁肯留心而听,以防将来呢? 
 24 谁将雅各交出当作掳物,将以色列交给抢夺的呢?岂不是耶和华吗?就是我们所得罪的那位。他们不肯遵行他的道,也不听从他的训诲。 
 25 所以他将猛烈的怒气,和争战的勇力,倾倒在以色列的身上。在他四围如火着起,他还不知道,烧着他,他也不介意。 

Chapter 42

1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.

3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.

4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.

5 Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:

6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

10 Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.

11 Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains.

12 Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands.

13 The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.

14 I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once.

15 I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.

16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.

17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods.

18 Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.

19 Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD's servant?

20 Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not.

21 The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable.

22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore.

23 Who among you will give ear to this? who will hearken and hear for the time to come?

24 Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the LORD, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law.

25 Therefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle: and it hath set him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart.

第四十三章

 1 雅各阿,创造你的耶和华,以色列阿,造成你的那位,现在如此说,你不要害怕,因为我救赎了你。我曾提你的名召你,你是属我的。 
 2 你从水中经过,我必与你同在。你趟过江河,水必不漫过你。你从火中行过,必不被烧,火焰也不着在你身上。 
 3 因为我是耶和华你的神,是以色列的圣者你的救主。我已经使埃及作你的赎价,使古实和西巴代替你。 
 4 因我看你为宝为尊,又因我爱你,所以我使人代替你,使列邦人替换你的生命。 
 5 不要害怕,因我与你同在。我必领你的后裔从东方来,又从西方招聚你。 
 6 我要对北方说,交出来。对南方说,不要拘留。将我的众子从远方带来,将我的众女从地极领回, 
 7 就是凡称为我名下的人,是我为自己的荣耀创造的,是我所作成,所造作的。 
 8 你要将有眼而瞎,有耳而聋的民都带出来。 
 9 任凭万国聚集,任凭众民会合,其中谁能将此声明,并将先前的事说给我们听呢?他们可以带出见证来,自显为是,或者他们听见便说,这是真的。 
 10 耶和华说,你们是我的见证,我所拣选的仆人。既是这样,便可以知道,且信服我,又明白我就是耶和华,在我以前没有真神,(真原文作造作的)在我以后也必没有。 
 11 惟有我是耶和华,除我以外没有救主。 
 12 我曾指示,我曾拯救,我曾说明。并且在你们中间没有别神,所以耶和华说,你们是我的见证,我也是神。 
 13 自从有日子以来,我就是神。谁也不能救人脱离我手,我要行事,谁能阻止呢? 
 14 耶和华你们的救赎主,以色列的圣者如此说,因你们的缘故,我已经打发人到巴比伦去,并且我要使迦勒底人如逃民,都坐自己喜乐的船下来。 
 15 我是耶和华你们的圣者,是创造以色列的,是你们的君王。 
 16 耶和华在沧海中开道,在大水中开路。 
 17 使车辆,马匹,军兵,勇士都出来,一同躺下不再起来,他们灭没好像熄灭的灯火。 
 18 耶和华如此说,你们不要记念从前的事,也不要思想古时的事。 
 19 看哪,我要做一件新事,如今要发现,你们岂不知道吗?我必在旷野开道路,在沙漠开江河。 
 20 野地的走兽必尊重我,野狗和鸵鸟也必如此,因我使旷野有水,使沙漠有河,好赐给我的百姓我的选民喝。 
 21 这百姓是我为自己所造的,好述说我的美德。 
 22 雅各阿,你并没有求告我。以色列阿,你倒厌烦我。 
 23 你没有将你的羊带来给我作燔祭,也没有用祭物尊敬我。我没有因供物使你服劳,也没有因乳香使你厌烦。 
 24 你没有用银子为我买菖蒲,也没有用祭物的脂油使我饱足,倒使我因你的罪恶服劳,使我因你的罪孽厌烦。 
 25 惟有我为自己的缘故涂抹你的过犯,我也不记念你的罪恶。 
 26 你要提醒我,你我可以一同辩论,你可以将你的理陈明,自显为义。 
 27 你的始祖犯罪,你的师傅违背我。 
 28 所以我要辱没圣所的首领,使雅各成为咒诅,使以色列成为辱骂。

Chapter 43

1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.

2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

3 For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.

4 Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.

5 Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;

6 I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth;

7 Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.

8 Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears.

9 Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and shew us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth.

10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.

12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God.

13 Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?

14 Thus saith the LORD, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships.

15 I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King.

16 Thus saith the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;

17 Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow.

18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

20 The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen.

21 This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.

22 But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel.

23 Thou hast not brought me the small cattle of thy burnt offerings; neither hast thou honoured me with thy sacrifices. I have not caused thee to serve with an offering, nor wearied thee with incense.

24 Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices: but thou hast made me to serve with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities.

25 I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.

26 Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.

27 Thy first father hath sinned, and thy teachers have transgressed against me.

28 Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and have given Jacob to the curse, and Israel to reproaches.

第四十四章

 1 我的仆人雅各,我所拣选的以色列阿,现在你当听。 
 2 造作你,又从你出胎造就你,并要帮助你的耶和华如此说,我的仆人雅各,我所拣选的耶书仑哪,不要害怕。 
 3 因为我要将水浇灌口渴的人,将河浇灌干旱之地。我要将我的灵浇灌你的后裔,将我的福浇灌你的子孙。 
 4 他们要发生在草中,像溪水旁的柳树。 
 5 这个要说,我是属耶和华的。那个要以雅各的名自称。又一个要亲手写归耶和华的(或作在手上写归耶和华)并自称为以色列。 
 6 耶和华以色列的君,以色列的救赎主万军之耶和华如此说,我是首先的,我是末后的,除我以外,再没有真神。 
 7 自从我设立古时的民,谁能像我宣告,并且指明,又为自己陈说呢?让他将未来的事,和必成的事说明。 
 8 你们不要恐惧,也不要害怕。我岂不是从上古就说明指示你们吗?并且你们是我的见证,除我以外,岂有真神吗?诚然没有磐石,我不知道一个。 
 9 制造雕刻偶像的,尽都虚空。他们所喜悦的,都无益处。他们的见证,无所看见,无所知晓,他们便觉羞愧。 
 10 谁制造神像,铸造无益的偶像? 
 11 看哪,他的同伴都必羞愧,工匠也不过是人。任他们聚会,任他们站立,都必惧怕,一同羞愧。 
 12 铁匠把铁在火炭中烧热,用锤打铁器,用他有力的臂膀锤成。他饥饿而无力,不喝水而发倦。 
 13 木匠拉线,用笔划出样子。用刨子刨成形状,用圆尺划了模样,仿照人的体态,作成人形,好住在房屋中。 
 14 他砍伐香柏树,又取柞(或作青桐)树和橡树,在树林中选定了一棵。他栽种松树得雨长养, 
 15 这树,人可用以烧火,他自己取些烤火,又烧着烤饼。而且作神像跪拜,作雕刻的偶像向它叩拜。 
 16 他把一分烧在火中,把一分烤肉吃饱。自己烤火说,阿哈,我暖和了,我见火了。 
 17 他用剩下的作了一神,就是雕刻的偶像,他向这偶像俯伏叩拜,祷告它说,求你拯救我,因你是我的神。 
 18 他们不知道,也不思想,因为耶和华闭住他们的眼不能看见,塞住他们的心不能明白。 
 19 谁心里也不醒悟,也没有知识,没有聪明,能说,我曾拿一分在火中烧了,在炭上烤过饼,我也烤过肉吃,这剩下的,我岂要作可憎的物麽。我岂可向木墩子叩拜呢。 
 20 他以灰为食,心中昏迷,使他偏邪,他不能自救,也不能说,我右手中岂不是有虚谎吗? 
 21 雅各以色列阿,你是我的仆人,要记念这些事。以色列阿,你是我的仆人,我造就你必不忘记你。 
 22 我涂抹了你的过犯,像厚云消散。我涂抹了你的罪恶,如薄云灭没。你当归向我,因我救赎了你。 
 23 诸天哪,应当歌唱,因为耶和华作成这事。地的深处阿,应当欢呼,众山应当发声歌唱,树林和其中所有的树,都当如此,因为耶和华救赎了雅各,并要因以色列荣耀自己。 
 24 从你出胎,造就你的救赎主耶和华如此说,我耶和华是创造万物的,是独自铺张诸天,铺开大地的。(谁与我同在呢) 
 25 使说假话的兆头失效,使占卜的癫狂,使智慧人退后,使他的知识变为愚拙。 
 26 使我仆人的话语立定,我使者的谋算成就。论到耶路撒冷说,必有人居住。论到犹大的城邑说,必被建造。其中的荒场我也必兴起。 
 27 对深渊说,你干了吧。我也要使你的江河干涸。 
 28 论古列说,他是我的牧人,必成就我所喜悦的,必下令建造耶路撒冷,发命立稳圣殿的根基。

Chapter 44

1 Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen:

2 Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen.

3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:

4 And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses.

5 One shall say, I am the LORD's; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD, and surname himself by the name of Israel.

6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

7 And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them.

8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.

9 They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.

10 Who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing?

11 Behold, all his fellows shall be ashamed: and the workmen, they are of men: let them all be gathered together, let them stand up; yet they shall fear, and they shall be ashamed together.

12 The smith with the tongs both worketh in the coals, and fashioneth it with hammers, and worketh it with the strength of his arms: yea, he is hungry, and his strength faileth: he drinketh no water, and is faint.

13 The carpenter stretcheth out his rule; he marketh it out with a line; he fitteth it with planes, and he marketh it out with the compass, and maketh it after the figure of a man, according to the beauty of a man; that it may remain in the house.

14 He heweth him down cedars, and taketh the cypress and the oak, which he strengtheneth for himself among the trees of the forest: he planteth an ash, and the rain doth nourish it.

15 Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take thereof, and warm himself; yea, he kindleth it, and baketh bread; yea, he maketh a god, and worshippeth it; he maketh it a graven image, and falleth down thereto.

16 He burneth part thereof in the fire; with part thereof he eateth flesh; he roasteth roast, and is satisfied: yea, he warmeth himself, and saith, Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire:

17 And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image: he falleth down unto it, and worshippeth it, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me; for thou art my god.

18 They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand.

19 And none considereth in his heart, neither is there knowledge nor understanding to say, I have burned part of it in the fire; yea, also I have baked bread upon the coals thereof; I have roasted flesh, and eaten it: and shall I make the residue thereof an abomination? shall I fall down to the stock of a tree?

20 He feedeth on ashes: a deceived heart hath turned him aside, that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand?

21 Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; for thou art my servant: I have formed thee; thou art my servant: O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me.

22 I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.

23 Sing, O ye heavens; for the LORD hath done it: shout, ye lower parts of the earth: break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and glorified himself in Israel.

24 Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;

25 That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;

26 That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof:

27 That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers:

28 That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.
