耶利米书 31

以色列人必回归

1耶和华说:“那时,我要做以色列各宗族的上帝,他们必做我的子民。

“逃脱刀兵之灾的以色列人必在旷野蒙恩,
找到安息之所。
这是耶和华说的。”
从前,耶和华向以色列显现,说:
“我以永远不变的爱爱你,
我以慈爱吸引你到我身边。
以色列人啊,
我要重建你们的家园,
你们要再次拿起铃鼓与欢乐的人一同跳舞。
你们将在撒玛利亚的山上重新栽种葡萄园,
享受园中的果实。
有一天,看守园子的人要在以法莲的山上呼喊,
‘我们上锡安朝见我们的上帝耶和华吧!’”
耶和华说:
“你们要为雅各欢呼歌唱,
向列国之首喝采。
你们要传扬颂赞,说,
‘耶和华啊,
求你拯救以色列剩余的子民!’
看啊,我要从北方,
从地极招聚他们,
其中有瞎子、跛子、孕妇和产妇,
他们要成群结队地回到这里。
我必引领他们回来,
他们必一路含泪祷告。
我要使他们走在溪水边,
行在平坦的路上,
他们必不会跌倒,
因为我是以色列的父亲,
以法莲是我的长子。

10 “列国啊,你们要听耶和华的话,
要在远方的海岛宣扬,
‘祂从前驱散以色列人,
如今必再聚集、保护他们,
好像牧人看守自己的羊群一样。’
11 耶和华必拯救雅各的子孙,
从强敌手中救出他们。
12 他们必来到锡安山上欢呼,
为耶和华所赐的五谷、新酒、
油、羔羊和牛犊而欢欣。
他们就像水源充足的田园,
一无所缺。
13 那时,少女要欢然起舞,
老人和青年要一起快乐。
我要使他们转忧为喜,
我要安慰他们,使他们欢喜,
不再忧愁。
14 我要使祭司有充足的供应,
使我的子民饱享美物。
这是耶和华说的。”
15 耶和华说:
“在拉玛有痛哭哀号的声音,
是拉结在为儿女哀痛,
不肯接受安慰,
因为他们都死了。”

16 耶和华说:
“不要哭泣,不要流泪,
因为你的劳苦必有回报,
你的儿女必从敌国回来。
这是耶和华说的。
17 你将来必有盼望,
你的儿女必重返家园。
这是耶和华说的。
18 我听见以法莲[a]在为自己悲叹,
‘我们就像未经驯服的牛犊,
你管教我们,使我们顺服,
求你使我们回到你身边,
重新复兴,
因为你是我们的上帝耶和华。
19 我们曾经离开你,
但我们后悔了;
我们醒悟之后捶胸顿足,
痛悔不已,
因早年的所作所为而羞愧难当。’”
20 耶和华说:“以法莲不是我的爱子吗?
他不是我喜悦的孩子吗?
我虽然常常责备他,
但仍然惦记着他。
我深深地想念他,
我必怜悯他。

21 “以色列人啊,
你们要为自己设置路标,
竖起路牌,
牢记你们走过的大道。
以色列人啊,
回来吧!回到你们的城邑吧!
22 不忠贞的子民啊!
你们四处流浪要到何时呢?
耶和华在地上行了一件新事——女子将要护卫男子。”

23 以色列的上帝——万军之耶和华说:“我使被掳的犹大人回到故乡后,他们要在犹大各城邑再次呼喊,

“‘公义的居所啊,
圣山啊,愿耶和华赐福给你!’

24 “农夫和牧人必住在犹大的各城邑。 25 我要使疲乏的人振作起来,使苦闷的人快乐起来。”

26 这时,我醒过来,觉得这一觉实在香甜。

27 耶和华说:“看啊,时候将到,我要使以色列和犹大人丁兴旺,牲畜繁多。 28 我曾决意铲除、拆毁、推翻、剿灭他们,降灾给他们,将来我必塑造、栽培他们。这是耶和华说的。 29 那时,人再不会说,

“‘父亲吃酸葡萄,
儿子的牙酸倒了。’

30 因为各人都要承担自己的罪,谁吃酸葡萄,谁的牙酸倒。” 31 耶和华说:“看啊,时候将到,我要与以色列家和犹大家另立新约, 32 这约不同于我与他们祖先所立的约,就是我牵着他们祖先的手领他们离开埃及时所立的。虽然我是他们的丈夫,他们却违背了我的约。这是耶和华说的。”

33 耶和华说:“那些日子以后,我将与以色列家立这样的约,我要把我的律法放在他们脑中,写在他们心上。我要做他们的上帝,他们要做我的子民。 34 谁都无需再教导他的邻居和弟兄,说,‘你要认识耶和华’,因为他们无论尊卑都必认识我。我要赦免他们的过犯,忘掉他们的罪恶。这是耶和华说的。”

35 使阳光白天照耀、
星月晚上发光、
大海波涛汹涌的万军之耶和华说:
36 “只要天地之律还在,
以色列邦国必永续不断。
这是耶和华说的。”

37 耶和华说:
“正如无人能量度高天,
探测大地的根基,
同样我也决不会因以色列人的所作所为而弃绝他们。
这是耶和华说的。”

38 耶和华说:“看啊,时候将到,从哈楠业楼直到角门,整个耶路撒冷城要重建起来归给耶和华。 39 城界要向外延伸到迦立山,再转到歌亚。 40 甚至抛尸、倒灰的整个山谷,以及从汲沦溪到东边马门拐角的所有田地都要归给耶和华作圣地,永不再被倾覆、毁灭。”

King James Version

Jeremiah 31

1At the same time, saith the Lord, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people.

Thus saith the Lord, The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest.

The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.

Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy tabrets, and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry.

Thou shalt yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things.

For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the Lord our God.

For thus saith the Lord; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O Lord, save thy people, the remnant of Israel.

Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither.

They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.

10 Hear the word of the Lord, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.

11 For the Lord hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he.

12 Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the Lord, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all.

13 Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.

14 And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the Lord.

15 Thus saith the Lord; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not.

16 Thus saith the Lord; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the Lord; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy.

17 And there is hope in thine end, saith the Lord, that thy children shall come again to their own border.

18 I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself thus; Thou hast chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke: turn thou me, and I shall be turned; for thou art the Lord my God.

19 Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I was instructed, I smote upon my thigh: I was ashamed, yea, even confounded, because I did bear the reproach of my youth.

20 Is Ephraim my dear son? is he a pleasant child? for since I spake against him, I do earnestly remember him still: therefore my bowels are troubled for him; I will surely have mercy upon him, saith the Lord.

21 Set thee up waymarks, make thee high heaps: set thine heart toward the highway, even the way which thou wentest: turn again, O virgin of Israel, turn again to these thy cities.

22 How long wilt thou go about, O thou backsliding daughter? for the Lord hath created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man.

23 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; As yet they shall use this speech in the land of Judah and in the cities thereof, when I shall bring again their captivity; The Lord bless thee, O habitation of justice, and mountain of holiness.

24 And there shall dwell in Judah itself, and in all the cities thereof together, husbandmen, and they that go forth with flocks.

25 For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.

26 Upon this I awaked, and beheld; and my sleep was sweet unto me.

27 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man, and with the seed of beast.

28 And it shall come to pass, that like as I have watched over them, to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict; so will I watch over them, to build, and to plant, saith the Lord.

29 In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge.

30 But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge.

31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord:

33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

35 Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The Lord of hosts is his name:

36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the Lord, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.

37 Thus saith the Lord; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the Lord.

38 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that the city shall be built to the Lord from the tower of Hananeel unto the gate of the corner.

39 And the measuring line shall yet go forth over against it upon the hill Gareb, and shall compass about to Goath.

40 And the whole valley of the dead bodies, and of the ashes, and all the fields unto the brook of Kidron, unto the corner of the horse gate toward the east, shall be holy unto the Lord; it shall not be plucked up, nor thrown down any more for ever.
