耶利米书 35

顺服的利甲族和悖逆的犹大人

1犹大王约西亚的儿子约雅敬执政期间,耶和华对耶利米说: “你去利甲族那里,邀请他们到耶和华殿的一间厢房,给他们酒喝。” 于是,我将哈巴洗尼雅的孙子、雅利米雅的儿子雅撒尼亚,以及雅撒尼亚的弟兄和儿子等利甲全族的人, 领到耶和华的殿,进入上帝的仆人伊基大利之子哈难众儿子的房间。这房间靠近官长的房间,在殿门守卫沙龙的儿子玛西雅的房间上面。 我把盛满酒的杯和壶摆在利甲全族面前,请他们喝酒。 他们却说:“我们不喝酒,因为我们的祖先利甲的儿子约拿达曾吩咐我们和我们的子孙永远不可喝酒、 盖房、撒种、栽植葡萄或拥有葡萄园,一辈子都要住帐篷,以便在异乡长久居住。 我们遵守他的一切吩咐,我们和我们的妻子儿女从不喝酒, 不盖房,也没有葡萄园、田地和种子。 10 我们住帐篷,遵守我们祖先约拿达的一切吩咐。 11 但当巴比伦王尼布甲尼撒进攻这里的时候,我们决定来耶路撒冷躲避迦勒底和亚兰的军队。因此,我们现在住在耶路撒冷。”

12 耶和华对耶利米说: 13 “这是以色列的上帝——万军之耶和华的话,你去把我的话告诉犹大人和耶路撒冷的居民,‘耶和华说,你们要听从我的教导。 14 利甲的儿子约拿达吩咐他的子孙不可喝酒,他们直到现在都不喝酒。但我屡次告诫你们,你们却不听我的话。 15 我再三差遣我的仆人——众先知劝你们改邪归正,不要追随、祭拜别的神明,以便你们可以在我赐给你们和你们祖先的土地上安居乐业,你们却充耳不闻,毫不理会。 16 利甲的儿子约拿达的子孙尚且听从他们祖先的吩咐,你们却不听从我的话。 17 因此,以色列的上帝——万军之耶和华说,我要给犹大和耶路撒冷的居民降下我说过的灾祸。因为我对他们说话,他们不听;我呼唤他们,他们不理会。’”

18 然后,耶利米对利甲族人说:“以色列的上帝——万军之耶和华说,‘你们听从祖先利甲的儿子约拿达的吩咐,遵守他的一切命令, 19 因此,利甲的儿子约拿达的子孙必永远事奉我。这是以色列的上帝——万军之耶和华说的。’”

King James Version

Jeremiah 35

1The word which came unto Jeremiah from the Lord in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying,

Go unto the house of the Rechabites, and speak unto them, and bring them into the house of the Lord, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to drink.

Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the son of Habaziniah, and his brethren, and all his sons, and the whole house of the Rechabites;

And I brought them into the house of the Lord, into the chamber of the sons of Hanan, the son of Igdaliah, a man of God, which was by the chamber of the princes, which was above the chamber of Maaseiah the son of Shallum, the keeper of the door:

And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites pots full of wine, and cups, and I said unto them, Drink ye wine.

But they said, We will drink no wine: for Jonadab the son of Rechab our father commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye, nor your sons for ever:

Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant vineyard, nor have any: but all your days ye shall dwell in tents; that ye may live many days in the land where ye be strangers.

Thus have we obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab our father in all that he hath charged us, to drink no wine all our days, we, our wives, our sons, nor our daughters;

Nor to build houses for us to dwell in: neither have we vineyard, nor field, nor seed:

10 But we have dwelt in tents, and have obeyed, and done according to all that Jonadab our father commanded us.

11 But it came to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon came up into the land, that we said, Come, and let us go to Jerusalem for fear of the army of the Chaldeans, and for fear of the army of the Syrians: so we dwell at Jerusalem.

12 Then came the word of the Lord unto Jeremiah, saying,

13 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Will ye not receive instruction to hearken to my words? saith the Lord.

14 The words of Jonadab the son of Rechab, that he commanded his sons not to drink wine, are performed; for unto this day they drink none, but obey their father's commandment: notwithstanding I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye hearkened not unto me.

15 I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me.

16 Because the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have performed the commandment of their father, which he commanded them; but this people hath not hearkened unto me:

17 Therefore thus saith the Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced against them: because I have spoken unto them, but they have not heard; and I have called unto them, but they have not answered.

18 And Jeremiah said unto the house of the Rechabites, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Because ye have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts, and done according unto all that he hath commanded you:

19 Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before me for ever.
