以賽亞書 1

1猶大王烏西雅、約坦、亞哈斯和希西迦執政期間,亞摩斯的兒子以賽亞看到了以下有關猶大和耶路撒冷的異象。

上帝責備叛逆的子民

諸天啊,請聽!
大地啊,要側耳聽!
耶和華說:
「我把孩子撫育成人,
他們竟然背叛我。
牛認識主人,
驢也認得主人的槽,
以色列卻不認識,
我的子民卻不明白。」

唉!你們這罪惡的民族,
惡貫滿盈的百姓,
作惡的子孫,
敗壞的兒女!
你們背棄耶和華,
藐視以色列的聖者,
與祂疏遠。

你們為什麼一再叛逆?
你們還要受責打嗎?
你們已經頭破血流,
身心疲憊。
你們已經體無完膚,
從頭到腳傷痕纍纍,
傷口沒有清洗,
沒有包紮,也沒有敷藥。

你們的土地荒涼,
城邑化為灰燼。
你們親眼目睹自己的田園被外族人侵吞、毀壞、變成不毛之地。
僅存的錫安[a]城也像葡萄園裡的草棚、
瓜田中的茅舍、
被困無援的孤城。
若不是萬軍之耶和華讓我們一些人存活,
我們早就像所多瑪和蛾摩拉一樣滅亡了。

10 你們這些「所多瑪」的首領啊,
要聆聽耶和華的話!
你們這些「蛾摩拉」的百姓啊,
要側耳聽我們上帝的訓誨!
11 耶和華說:
「你們獻上許多祭物,對我有什麼用呢?
我厭煩公綿羊的燔祭和肥畜的脂肪,
我不喜歡公牛、羊羔和公山羊的血。

12 「你們來敬拜我的時候,
誰要求你們帶著這些來踐踏我的院宇呢?
13 不要再帶毫無意義的祭物了。
我憎惡你們燒的香,
厭惡你們的朔日[b]、安息日和大會。
你們又作惡又舉行莊嚴的聚會,
令我無法容忍。
14 我憎惡你們的朔日及其他節期,
它們成了我的重擔,
令我厭倦。
15 你們舉手禱告,我必掩面不理。
即使你們禱告再多,
我也不會聽,
因為你們雙手沾滿鮮血。
16 你們要洗淨自己,
停止作惡,
不要讓我再看見你們的惡行。
17 你們要學習行善,
追求正義,
幫助受欺壓的,
替孤兒辯護,
為寡婦伸冤。」
18 耶和華說:
「來吧,我們彼此理論!
你們的罪雖如猩紅,
也必潔白如雪;
你們的罪雖如緋紅,
也必白如羊毛。
19 如果你們願意聽從,
就必享用這地方的美好出產。
20 如果你們執意叛逆,
就必喪身刀下。」
這是耶和華親口說的。
21 耶路撒冷啊,
你這忠貞的妻子竟變成了妓女!
你從前充滿公平,
是公義之家,
現在卻住著兇手。
22 你曾經像銀子,現在卻像渣滓;
曾經像美酒,現在卻像攙了水的酒。
23 你的首領是叛逆之徒,
與盜賊為伍,
個個收受賄賂,
貪圖好處,
不為孤兒辯護,
不替寡婦伸冤。

24 所以,主——萬軍之耶和華,
以色列的大能者說:
「我要向我的敵人報仇雪恨。
25 我必攻擊你,
用鹼煉淨你的渣滓,
除盡你的雜質。
26 我必像從前一樣賜你審判官和謀士。
之後,你必被稱為公義之城、
忠信之邑。」

27 耶和華必因祂的公正救贖錫安,
必因祂的公義拯救城中悔改的人。
28 但叛逆之輩和犯罪之徒必遭毀滅,
背棄耶和華的人必滅亡。
29 你們必因在橡樹下,
在你們選擇的園子裡祭拜偶像而蒙羞。
30 你們必像枯萎的橡樹,
又如無水的園子。
31 你們中間有權勢的人必因他們的惡行而遭毀滅,
好像火花點燃枯木,無人能救。

King James Version

Isaiah 1

1The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.

Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the Lord hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.

The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.

Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.

Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.

Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.

Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.

10 Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.

11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

12 When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?

13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.

15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.

22 Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:

23 Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.

24 Therefore saith the Lord, the Lord of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies:

25 And I will turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin:

26 And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.

27 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.

28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the Lord shall be consumed.

29 For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen.

30 For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water.

31 And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them.
