以赛亚书 28

北国必遭审判

1以法莲酒徒引以为荣的华冠有祸了!

它坐落在醉酒者肥美的山谷顶上,
它的荣美如将残之花。
看啊,主已经派来一位强壮有力的人,
他像冰雹和毁灭的暴风,
又像汹涌泛滥的洪水,
他必把那华冠猛力摔在地上。
以法莲酒徒引以为荣的华冠必被践踏。
那肥美山谷上将残的荣美之花,
必像夏季到来之前早熟的无花果,
人一看见它就把它摘去吞掉。
到那日,万军之耶和华必做祂余民的荣冠和华冕。
祂必使审判官公正断案,
赐力量给守城退敌之人。
但祭司和先知也因喝酒而摇摇晃晃,
因烈酒而东倒西歪。
他们因烈酒而摇摇晃晃、
酩酊大醉、东倒西歪,
他们错解异象,糊涂判案。
桌子上到处都是呕吐之物,
一片狼藉。
他们抱怨我说:
“他想教导谁知识呢?
他想把信息解释给谁呢?
是刚刚断奶、离开母怀的婴孩吗?
10 因为他的教导只是命命令令、命命令令、律律例例、律律例例、这里一点、那里一点。”

11 因此,耶和华必用外族人的口和语言来教训他们。
12 耶和华曾对他们说:
“这是安歇之地,
让疲乏的人安歇吧。
这是安歇之地。”
他们却不肯听。
13 所以,对他们来说,
耶和华的话成了命命令令、命命令令、律律例例、律律例例、这里一点、那里一点,
以致他们走路时仰面跌倒,摔伤,落网,被捉。
14 你们这些好讥讽、在耶路撒冷统管百姓的人啊,
要听耶和华的话。
15 你们说:
“我们已经和死亡立约,
与阴间结盟。
灾难席卷而来的时候,
我们会安然无恙,
因为我们以谎言为庇护所,
以诡诈为藏身处。”
16 所以主耶和华说:
“看啊,我要在锡安放一块基石,
一块经过考验的石头,
一块根基稳固的宝贵房角石,
信靠的人必不致蒙羞。
17 我必以公平为准绳,
以公义作线锤。
冰雹必砸碎你们虚谎的庇护所,
洪水必淹没你们的藏身处。
18 你们和死亡所立的约必被废弃,
与阴间的结盟必不能长久。
灾难席卷而来的时候,
你们必遭毁灭。
19 灾难必不分昼夜、日复一日地扫过,
每次扫过都必将你们掳去。”
明白这信息的人都必惊恐万分。
20 你们的床太小,不能舒身;
你们的被子太窄,不足裹身。[a]
21 耶和华必像在毗拉心山一样挺身而出,
像在基遍谷一样发怒,
要完成祂奇异的作为,
成就祂不寻常的工作。
22 现在你们不要再讥讽了,
以免捆绑你们的绳索勒得更紧,
因为我已从主——万军之耶和华那里听到毁灭全国的谕旨。
23 你们要侧耳听我的声音,
留心听我的话语。
24 难道农夫会一直耕地而不撒种吗?
难道他会一直犁地、耙地吗?
25 他耙平土地之后,
难道不种小茴香、大茴香吗?
不按行种小麦,
在合适的地方种大麦,
在田边种粗麦吗?
26 因为上帝指点他,教导他耕种之道。

27 打小茴香不用大槌,用棍子;
打大茴香不用石磙,用棒子。
28 做饼的粮食要磨碎,
没有人会不停地在场上碾压粮食。
马拉着石磙在场上轧过,
也不会把麦子磨碎。
29 这些知识都是万军之耶和华所赐的,
祂有奇妙的谋略和伟大的智慧。

King James Version

Isaiah 28

1Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine!

Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand.

The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, shall be trodden under feet:

And the glorious beauty, which is on the head of the fat valley, shall be a fading flower, and as the hasty fruit before the summer; which when he that looketh upon it seeth, while it is yet in his hand he eateth it up.

In that day shall the Lord of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue of his people,

And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.

But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.

For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.

Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.

10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.

12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.

13 But the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

14 Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.

15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:

16 Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.

18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.

19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.

20 For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.

21 For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.

22 Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord God of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.

23 Give ye ear, and hear my voice; hearken, and hear my speech.

24 Doth the plowman plow all day to sow? doth he open and break the clods of his ground?

25 When he hath made plain the face thereof, doth he not cast abroad the fitches, and scatter the cummin, and cast in the principal wheat and the appointed barley and the rie in their place?

26 For his God doth instruct him to discretion, and doth teach him.

27 For the fitches are not threshed with a threshing instrument, neither is a cart wheel turned about upon the cummin; but the fitches are beaten out with a staff, and the cummin with a rod.

28 Bread corn is bruised; because he will not ever be threshing it, nor break it with the wheel of his cart, nor bruise it with his horsemen.

29 This also cometh forth from the Lord of hosts, which is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in working.
