约伯记 27

1约伯接着说:
“我凭不给我公道的永恒上帝,
凭使我灵魂陷入痛苦的全能者起誓,
只要我一息尚存,
鼻中还有上帝之气,
我的嘴唇决不说恶语,
舌头决不讲谎话。
我决不承认你们有理,
我至死坚信自己无辜。
我坚守自己的公义,决不放弃,
我有生之年都问心无愧。

“愿我仇敌的下场和恶人一样,
愿我对头的结局和罪人相同。
因为不敬虔的人将被铲除,上帝将夺去他的性命。
那时,他还有何指望?
患难临到他时,
上帝岂会垂听他的呼求?
10 他岂会以全能者为乐,
时时求告上帝?

11 “我要教导你们有关上帝的能力,
我不会隐瞒全能者的作为。
12 其实你们也曾亲眼目睹,
为何还讲这些虚妄之言?

13 “以下是上帝给恶人定的结局,
全能者赐给残暴之徒的归宿。
14 他的儿女再多也难逃杀戮,
他的子孙永远吃不饱。
15 他幸存的后人被瘟疫吞噬,
生还的寡妇也不哀哭。
16 尽管他堆积的银子多如尘沙,
储存的衣服高若土堆,
17 但义人将穿他储存的衣服,
清白的人将分他堆积的银子。
18 他建的房子像蛾茧,
像守望者搭的草棚。
19 他睡前还是富翁,
醒来后财富已空。
20 恐惧如洪水般淹没他,
暴风在夜间把他卷去。
21 东风把他刮走,
吹得无影无踪。
22 狂风[a]毫不留情地击打他,
他拼命地逃离风的威力。
23 狂风向他拍掌,
呼啸着吹走他。

Job 27

Job’s Final Speech

1Job continued speaking:

“I vow by the living God, who has taken away my rights,
    by the Almighty who has embittered my soul—
As long as I live,
    while I have breath from God,
my lips will speak no evil,
    and my tongue will speak no lies.
I will never concede that you are right;
    I will defend my integrity until I die.
I will maintain my innocence without wavering.
    My conscience is clear for as long as I live.

“May my enemy be punished like the wicked,
    my adversary like those who do evil.
For what hope do the godless have when God cuts them off
    and takes away their life?
Will God listen to their cry
    when trouble comes upon them?
10 Can they take delight in the Almighty?
    Can they call to God at any time?
11 I will teach you about God’s power.
    I will not conceal anything concerning the Almighty.
12 But you have seen all this,
    yet you say all these useless things to me.

13 “This is what the wicked will receive from God;
    this is their inheritance from the Almighty.
14 They may have many children,
    but the children will die in war or starve to death.
15 Those who survive will die of a plague,
    and not even their widows will mourn them.

16 “Evil people may have piles of money
    and may store away mounds of clothing.
17 But the righteous will wear that clothing,
    and the innocent will divide that money.
18 The wicked build houses as fragile as a spider’s web,[a]
    as flimsy as a shelter made of branches.
19 The wicked go to bed rich
    but wake to find that all their wealth is gone.
20 Terror overwhelms them like a flood,
    and they are blown away in the storms of the night.
21 The east wind carries them away, and they are gone.
    It sweeps them away.
22 It whirls down on them without mercy.
    They struggle to flee from its power.
23 But everyone jeers at them
    and mocks them.
