哈巴谷书 1

1以下是哈巴谷先知得到的启示。

哈巴谷的抱怨

耶和华啊,
我要向你呼救到何时,
你才垂听呢?
暴虐横行,我向你呼求,
你却不拯救。
你为何让我目睹罪恶?
你为何容忍邪恶?
我眼前尽是毁灭和暴力,
到处是纷争和冲突。
因此律法失效,
正义不彰,
恶人包围义人,
正义被扭曲。

耶和华的答复

耶和华说:“你们环顾列国,
仔细察看,
必惊奇不已,
因为我要在你们的时代行一件事,
即使你们听说了也不会相信。
我要使凶残、暴虐的迦勒底人兴起。
他们要席卷天下,
强占别人的家园。
他们任意妄为,
令人胆战心惊。

“他们的马比豹子还快,
比夜狼还猛。
他们的骑兵从远方飞驰而来,
如鹰扑食。
他们残暴成性,
像狂风一样扑来,
抓获的俘虏多如尘沙。
10 他们嘲笑君王,讥讽首领,
对一切坚城嗤之以鼻,
修筑高台将其攻取。
11 他们如狂风横扫而过,
这些有罪的人把自己的力量奉为神明。”

哈巴谷再次抱怨

12 耶和华,
我的上帝,我的圣者啊,
你从亘古就存在,
你永不消逝[a]
耶和华啊,你派迦勒底人来审判;
磐石啊,你立他们作施罚者。
13 你的眼目极为清洁,
见不得邪恶,
也不能容忍罪恶。
但你为何容忍奸恶之人呢?
恶人吞灭比他们公义的人,
你为何默然不语呢?

14 你为何使人像海里的鱼,
像没有首领的爬虫呢?
15 迦勒底人用钩子钩住他们,
用渔网网住他们,
用拖网把他们聚在一起,
并因此而欢喜快乐。
16 迦勒底人向渔网献祭,
向渔网烧香,
因为他们靠渔网而富裕,
食物充足。
17 难道他们要无休止地撒网,
无情地毁灭列国吗?

Habakkuk 1

Chaldeans Used to Punish Judah

1The [a]oracle which Habakkuk the prophet saw.

How long, O Lord, will I call for help,
And You will not hear?
I cry out to You, “Violence!”
Yet You do not save.
Why do You make me see iniquity,
And cause me to look on wickedness?
Yes, destruction and violence are before me;
Strife exists and contention arises.
Therefore the law is [b]ignored
And justice [c]is never upheld.
For the wicked surround the righteous;
Therefore justice comes out perverted.

“Look among the nations! Observe!
Be astonished! Wonder!
Because I am doing something in your days—
You would not believe if [d]you were told.
“For behold, I am raising up the Chaldeans,
That [e]fierce and impetuous people
Who march [f]throughout the earth
To [g]seize dwelling places which are not theirs.
“They are dreaded and feared;
Their justice and [h]authority [i]originate with themselves.
“Their horses are swifter than leopards
And [j]keener than wolves in the evening.
Their [k]horsemen come galloping,
Their horsemen come from afar;
They fly like an eagle swooping down to devour.
“All of them come for violence.
[l]Their horde of faces moves forward.
They collect captives like sand.
10 “They mock at kings
And rulers are a laughing matter to them.
They laugh at every fortress
And heap up rubble to capture it.
11 “Then they will sweep through like the wind and pass on.
But they will be held guilty,
They whose strength is their god.”

12 Are You not from everlasting,
O Lord, my God, my Holy One?
We will not die.
You, O Lord, have appointed them to judge;
And You, O Rock, have established them to correct.
13 Your eyes are too pure to [m]approve evil,
And You can not look on wickedness with favor.
Why do You look with favor
On those who deal treacherously?
Why are You silent when the wicked swallow up
Those more righteous than they?
14 Why have You made men like the fish of the sea,
Like creeping things without a ruler over them?
15 The Chaldeans bring all of them up with a hook,
Drag them away with their net,
And gather them together in their fishing net.
Therefore they rejoice and are glad.
16 Therefore they offer a sacrifice to their net
And [n]burn incense to their fishing net;
Because through these things their [o]catch is [p]large,
And their food is [q]plentiful.
17 Will they therefore empty their net
And continually slay nations without sparing?
