以賽亞書 45

耶和華使塞魯士興起

1「我耶和華膏立塞魯士為王,
我牽著他的右手幫助他征服列國、降服列王;
我使城門洞開,
讓他通行無阻。
我對他說,
『我要走在你前面,
為你鏟平高山,
打破銅門,
砍斷鐵閂。
我要把隱藏的寶物和秘密收藏的財富賜給你,
好叫你知道點名呼召你的是我——以色列的上帝耶和華。
雖然你不認識我,
但為了我的僕人雅各,
我所揀選的以色列,
我還是點名呼召你,
賜給你一個尊貴的名號。
我是獨一無二的耶和華,
除我以外再沒有上帝。
雖然你不認識我,
但我還是賜你力量。
這樣,從日出之地到日落之處,
普天下都知道除我以外,
別無他神,
我耶和華獨一無二。
我造光明,也造黑暗;
賜平安,也降災禍。
這一切都是我耶和華的作為。

『我使諸天降下甘露,
雲彩降下公義,
使大地裂開,
萌生拯救和公義,
這是我耶和華的作為。』

「跟造物主爭辯的人有禍了!
他不過是世上瓦器中的一件。
陶泥怎能對陶匠說,『你在做什麽』?
受造之物怎能說,『造我的沒手藝』?
10 對父親說『你生的是什麼』
或對母親說『你產的是什麼』的人有禍了!」
11 耶和華——以色列的聖者和創造主說:
「你們就我子民將來的事質問我嗎?
你們發號施令要告訴我如何做嗎?
12 是我造了大地,又造了地上的人;
我親手鋪展穹蒼,
佈置天上的萬象。
13 我憑公義使塞魯士王興起,
我要讓他的道路暢通無阻。
他必重建我的城,
釋放我被擄的子民,
不是為了得報酬或獎賞。
這是萬軍之耶和華說的。」

14 耶和華說:
「埃及的出產和古實的貨物必歸你所有。
身材高大的西巴人必來歸附你,
戴著鎖鏈跟在你身後。
他們要向你下拜,
在你面前懇求,
並說,『上帝真的與你們同在,
祂獨一無二,除祂以外,
別無他神。』」
15 救主——以色列的上帝啊,
你真是一位隱藏自己的上帝。
16 製造偶像的都必蒙羞受辱,
一同慚愧。
17 但以色列必蒙耶和華拯救,
享受永遠的救恩,
永遠不會再蒙羞受辱。

18 創造諸天、塑造和建立大地給人居住、沒有使地荒涼的耶和華上帝說:
「我是耶和華,是獨一無二的上帝。
19 我沒有在隱秘處暗暗地說話,
我沒有對雅各的後裔說,
『你們找不到我。』
我耶和華宣揚真理,
傳講正義。

20 「列國的流亡者啊,
你們要聚集到這裡來。
那些抬著木頭神像、
向不能救人的神明禱告的人真愚昧!
21 你們要彼此商議,
陳明你們的理由。
誰早已預言過今天發生的事?
誰很久以前就說過這些預言?
難道不是我耶和華嗎?
除我以外別無他神。
我是公義的上帝,我是救主,
除我以外別無他神。
22 普世的人啊,歸向我吧,
你們必蒙拯救,
因為我是獨一無二的上帝。
23 我憑自己起誓,
我口中的話真實可靠,絕不更改,
『萬膝必向我跪拜,
萬口必起誓效忠於我。』
24 他們必說,
『只有耶和華那裡才有公義和能力。』」
向祂發怒的必在祂面前蒙羞。
25 以色列的後裔必被耶和華稱為義人,得到榮耀。

Isaiah 45

God Uses Cyrus

1Thus says the Lord to Cyrus His anointed,
Whom I have taken by the right hand,
To subdue nations before him
And [a]to loose the loins of kings;
To open doors before him so that gates will not be shut:
“I will go before you and make the [b]rough places smooth;
I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through their iron bars.
“I will give you the [c]treasures of darkness
And hidden wealth of secret places,
So that you may know that it is I,
The Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.
“For the sake of Jacob My servant,
And Israel My chosen one,
I have also called you by your name;
I have given you a title of honor
Though you have not known Me.
“I am the Lord, and there is no other;
Besides Me there is no God.
I will [d]gird you, though you have not known Me;
That [e]men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun
That there is no one besides Me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other,
The One forming light and creating darkness,
Causing [f]well-being and creating calamity;
I am the Lord who does all these.

God’s Supreme Power

“Drip down, O heavens, from above,
And let the clouds pour down righteousness;
Let the earth open up and salvation bear fruit,
And righteousness spring up with it.
I, the Lord, have created it.

“Woe to the one who quarrels with his [g]Maker—
An earthenware vessel [h]among the vessels of earth!
Will the clay say to the [i]potter, ‘What are you doing?’
Or the thing you are making say, ‘He has no hands’?
10 “Woe to him who says to a father, ‘What are you begetting?’
Or to a woman, ‘To what are you [j]giving birth?’”

11 Thus says the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his [k]Maker:

[l]Ask Me about the things to come [m]concerning My sons,
And you shall commit to Me the work of My hands.
12 “It is I who made the earth, and created man upon it.
I stretched out the heavens with My hands
And I [n]ordained all their host.
13 “I have aroused him in righteousness
And I will make all his ways smooth;
He will build My city and will let My exiles go free,
Without any payment or reward,” says the Lord of hosts.

14 Thus says the Lord,

“The [o]products of Egypt and the merchandise of [p]Cush
And the Sabeans, men of stature,
Will come over to you and will be yours;
They will walk behind you, they will come over in chains
And will bow down to you;
They will make supplication to you:
[q]Surely, God is [r]with you, and there is none else,
No other God.’”
15 Truly, You are a God who hides Himself,
O God of Israel, Savior!
16 They will be put to shame and even humiliated, all of them;
The manufacturers of idols will go away together in humiliation.
17 Israel has been saved by the Lord
With an everlasting salvation;
You will not be put to shame or humiliated
To all eternity.

18 For thus says the Lord, who created the heavens (He is the God who formed the earth and made it, He established it and did not create it [s]a waste place, but formed it to be inhabited),

“I am the Lord, and there is none else.
19 “I have not spoken in secret,
In [t]some dark land;
I did not say to the [u]offspring of Jacob,
‘Seek Me in [v]a waste place’;
I, the Lord, speak righteousness,
Declaring things that are upright.

20 “Gather yourselves and come;
Draw near together, you fugitives of the nations;
They have no knowledge,
Who carry about [w]their wooden idol
And pray to a god who cannot save.
21 “Declare and set forth your case;
Indeed, let them consult together.
Who has announced this from of old?
Who has long since declared it?
Is it not I, the Lord?
And there is no other God besides Me,
A righteous God and a Savior;
There is none except Me.
22 “Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth;
For I am God, and there is no other.
23 “I have sworn by Myself,
The word has gone forth from My mouth in righteousness
And will not turn back,
That to Me every knee will bow, every tongue will swear allegiance.
24 “They will say of Me, ‘Only in the Lord are righteousness and strength.’
Men will come to Him,
And all who were angry at Him will be put to shame.
25 “In the Lord all the offspring of Israel
Will be justified and will glory.”
