Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

以西結書 25


1耶和華對我說: 「人子啊,你要面向亞捫人,說預言斥責他們, 告訴他們要聽主耶和華的話。主耶和華說,『當我的聖所被褻瀆,以色列變得荒涼,猶大人被擄的時候,你們竟然哈哈而樂。 所以我要使東方人侵佔你們的地方。他們必在你們的土地上安營紮寨,吃你們出產的果子,喝你們牛羊的奶。 我要使拉巴成為駱駝的草場,使亞捫人的土地變成羊群歇息之處,這樣你們便知道我是耶和華。

「主耶和華說,『你們看到以色列的災禍,便幸災樂禍,手舞足蹈。 因此,我要伸手攻擊你們,使你們成為各國的俘虜。我必從萬民中剷除你們,從萬國中消滅你們,使你們滅絕。這樣,你們就知道我是耶和華。』


「耶和華說,『摩押和西珥嘲笑猶大與其他各國沒有兩樣。 所以我要攻陷摩押邊界的城邑,就是那地方引以為榮的伯·耶西末、巴力·免和基列亭。 10 我要將它和亞捫人一起交給東方人統治,使亞捫人從此被列國遺忘。 11 我必審判摩押人,這樣他們就知道我是耶和華。』


12 「耶和華說,『因為以東報復猶大,犯了大罪。 13 所以,我要伸手攻擊以東,剷除那裡的人和牲畜,使地荒廢,從提幔直到底但的以東人要倒在刀下。 14 我要藉我以色列子民的手向以東報仇。以色列人會照我的烈怒懲罰他們。那時,他們就會嚐到我報應他們的滋味,這是主耶和華說的。』


15 「主耶和華說,『非利士人心存仇恨,為了報世仇要毀滅猶大, 16 所以我必伸手攻擊他們,剷除基利提人,毀滅沿海殘餘的人。 17 我要報應他們,發烈怒懲罰他們。我報應他們的時候,他們就知道我是耶和華。』」

Ezekiel 25

A Prophecy Against Ammon

1A message from the Lord came to me. The Lord said, “Son of man, turn your attention to the Ammonites. Prophesy against them. Tell them, ‘Listen to the message of the Lord and King. He says, “You laughed when my temple was made ‘unclean.’ You also laughed when the land of Israel was completely destroyed. You mocked the people of Judah when they were taken away as prisoners. So I am going to hand you over to the people of the east. They will set up their tents in your land. They will camp among you. They will eat your fruit. They will drink your milk. I will turn the city of Rabbah into grasslands for camels. Ammon will become a resting place for sheep. Then you will know that I am the Lord.” ’ ” The Lord and King says, “You clapped your hands. You stamped your feet. Deep down inside, you hated the land of Israel. You were glad because of what happened to it. So I will reach out my powerful hand against you. I will give you and everything you have to the nations. I will bring you to an end among the nations. I will destroy you. Then you will know that I am the Lord.”

A Prophecy Against Moab

The Lord and King says, “Moab and Edom said, ‘Look! Judah has become like all the other nations.’ So I will let Moab’s enemies attack its lower hills. They will begin at the border towns. Those towns include Beth Jeshimoth, Baal Meon and Kiriathaim. They are the glory of that land. 10 I will hand Moab over to the people of the east. I will also give the Ammonites to them. And the Ammonites will no longer be remembered among the nations. 11 I will punish Moab. Then they will know that I am the Lord.”

A Prophecy Against Edom

12 The Lord and King says, “Edom got even with Judah. That made Edom very guilty.” 13 The Lord continues, “I will reach out my hand against Edom. I will kill its people and their animals. I will completely destroy it. They will be killed by swords from Teman all the way to Dedan. 14 I will use my people Israel to pay Edom back. They will punish Edom because my anger against it is great. They will know how I pay back my enemies,” announces the Lord and King.

A Prophecy Against the Philistines

15 The Lord and King says, “Deep down inside them, the Philistines hated Judah. So the Philistines tried to get even with them. They had been Judah’s enemies for many years. So they tried to destroy them.” 16 The Lord continues, “I am about to reach out my hand against the Philistines. I will wipe out the Kerethites. I will destroy those who remain along the coast. 17 You can be sure that I will pay them back. I will punish them because my anger against them is great. When I pay them back, they will know that I am the Lord.”
