Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

何西阿書 1



耶和華首次向何西阿說話時,對他說:「你去娶一個妓女為妻,和她生養兒女,因為這片土地上的人極其淫亂,背棄了耶和華。」 於是,何西阿娶了滴拉音的女兒歌蜜為妻,她懷孕為他生了一個兒子。 耶和華對何西阿說:「給他取名叫耶斯列[a],因為再過不久,我就要因耶戶家在耶斯列的屠殺而懲罰他們,消滅以色列國。 那時,我要在耶斯列平原折斷以色列的弓。」 後來,歌蜜又懷孕生了一個女兒。耶和華對何西阿說:「給她取名叫羅·路哈瑪[b],因為我將不再憐憫以色列家,也不再赦免他們的罪。 但我要憐憫猶大家,使他們依靠他們的上帝耶和華得到拯救,而不是依靠戰弓、刀劍、馬匹、騎兵和戰爭。」 羅·路哈瑪斷奶後,歌蜜又懷孕生了一個兒子。 耶和華說:「給他取名叫羅·阿米[c],因為以色列人不再是我的子民,我也不再是他們的上帝。


10 「然而,以色列的人數必像海沙一樣量不盡、數不完。從前我在什麼地方對他們說『你們不是我的子民』,將來也要在那裡對他們說『你們是永活上帝的兒女』。 11 那時,猶大人和以色列人將被聚集起來,為自己選立一位首領,從流亡之地返回故鄉,安居樂業。耶斯列的日子將是偉大的日子。

New Living Translation

Hosea 1

1The Lord gave this message to Hosea son of Beeri during the years when Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah were kings of Judah, and Jeroboam son of Jehoash[a] was king of Israel.

Hosea’s Wife and Children

When the Lord first began speaking to Israel through Hosea, he said to him, “Go and marry a prostitute,[b] so that some of her children will be conceived in prostitution. This will illustrate how Israel has acted like a prostitute by turning against the Lord and worshiping other gods.”

So Hosea married Gomer, the daughter of Diblaim, and she became pregnant and gave Hosea a son. And the Lord said, “Name the child Jezreel, for I am about to punish King Jehu’s dynasty to avenge the murders he committed at Jezreel. In fact, I will bring an end to Israel’s independence. I will break its military power in the Jezreel Valley.”

Soon Gomer became pregnant again and gave birth to a daughter. And the Lord said to Hosea, “Name your daughter Lo-ruhamah—‘Not loved’—for I will no longer show love to the people of Israel or forgive them. But I will show love to the people of Judah. I will free them from their enemies—not with weapons and armies or horses and charioteers, but by my power as the Lord their God.”

After Gomer had weaned Lo-ruhamah, she again became pregnant and gave birth to a second son. And the Lord said, “Name him Lo-ammi—‘Not my people’—for Israel is not my people, and I am not their God.

10 [c]“Yet the time will come when Israel’s people will be like the sands of the seashore—too many to count! Then, at the place where they were told, ‘You are not my people,’ it will be said, ‘You are children of the living God.’ 11 Then the people of Judah and Israel will unite together. They will choose one leader for themselves, and they will return from exile together. What a day that will be—the day of Jezreel[d]—when God will again plant his people in his land.
