Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

以賽亞書 55

上帝施恩典

1耶和華說:「口渴的人啊,來喝水吧!
沒有錢的人啊,
來買東西吃吧!
買酒買奶都不用付錢。
你們為什麼花錢買不能充饑的食物?
為什麼拿辛苦賺來的錢買不能令人飽足的東西?
要留心聽我的話,
就可以吃美物,
享受豐盛的佳餚。
你們要到我這裡來,
側耳聽我的話,就必得到生命。
我要跟你們立永久的約,
將應許給大衛的可靠恩福賜給你們。
我使他統管萬民,
向萬民做見證。
看啊,你必召集不認識的國民,
不認識你的國民必來投奔你,
因為以色列的聖者——你的上帝耶和華賜給你榮耀。」

要趁著還可以找到耶和華的時候尋找祂,
趁祂還在附近的時候求告祂。
願邪惡的人停止作惡,
不義的人除掉惡念。
願他們歸向耶和華,
祂必憐憫他們;
願他們歸向我們的上帝,
祂必仁慈地赦免他們。
耶和華說:「我的意念並非你們的意念,
我的道路並非你們的道路。
正如天高過地,
我的道路也高過你們的道路,
我的意念也高過你們的意念。
10 雨雪從天降下,並不返回,
而是要滋潤大地,
使地上的植物發芽生長,
叫播種的有種子,
吃飯的有食糧。
11 同樣,我口中所出的話也不會徒然返回,
而是要成就我的旨意,
實現我的計劃。
12 你們必歡歡喜喜地出來,
平平安安地蒙引導,
大山小山都要在你們面前歌唱,
田野的樹木也都拍掌。
13 曾經的荊棘之地必長出松樹,
曾經的蒺藜之地必長出番石榴。
這便是永遠長存的記號,
以宣揚耶和華的名。」

King James Version

Isaiah 55

1Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.

Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the Lord thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.

Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
