Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

彌迦書 1

1猶大王約坦、亞哈斯和希西迦執政期間,耶和華把祂的話傳給了摩利沙人彌迦。他看到了有關撒瑪利亞和耶路撒冷的異象。

審判將臨

萬民啊,
你們都要聽!
大地和地上的萬物啊,
你們要側耳傾聽!
主耶和華從祂的聖殿裡作證指控你們。
看啊,耶和華離開祂的居所,
從天降臨,
腳踏大地的高處。
群山在祂腳下熔化,
猶如火中的蠟;
山谷崩裂,
岩石如水沿山坡傾瀉。
這一切都是因為雅各的叛逆,
以色列家的罪惡。
雅各的叛逆在哪裡呢?
豈不是在撒瑪利亞嗎?
猶大的邱壇在哪裡呢?
豈不是在耶路撒冷嗎?
「所以,我耶和華要使撒瑪利亞淪為荒野的廢墟,
成為種葡萄的地方。
我要把她的石頭拋進山谷,
直到露出她的根基。
她所有的神像都要被打碎,
她所得的淫資都要化為灰燼;
我要毀滅她的一切偶像。
她以淫資得來的偶像,
也要被用作妓女的淫資。」

先知的哀傷

為此,我要痛哭哀號,
我要赤身光腳而行,
像豺狼哀嚎,
如鴕鳥悲鳴。
因為撒瑪利亞的創傷無法救治,
已經禍及猶大,
直逼我百姓的城門,直逼耶路撒冷。
10 不要在迦特宣揚,
也不要哭泣,
要在伯·亞弗拉的灰塵中打滾。
11 沙斐的居民啊,
你們將赤身露體,
被羞辱地擄去。
撒南的居民不敢出城,
伯·以薛在痛哭,
你們已失去它的庇護。
12 瑪律的居民痛苦不堪,
渴望得到拯救,
因為耶和華已把災難降到耶路撒冷的城門。
13 拉吉的居民啊,
用駿馬套車逃命吧!
是你們首先唆使錫安城犯罪,
在你們身上看到了以色列的罪惡。
14 去向摩利設·迦特贈送告別禮物吧!
亞革悉人必令以色列諸王受騙上當。
15 瑪利沙的居民啊,
我要使征服者到你們那裡。
以色列的領袖[a]要躲到亞杜蘭。

16 猶大人啊,你們要剃光頭髮,
為你們所愛的兒女悲傷;
要剃得如禿鷹一樣光禿,
因為他們要被擄到遠方。

New Living Translation

Micah 1

1The Lord gave this message to Micah of Moresheth during the years when Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah were kings of Judah. The visions he saw concerned both Samaria and Jerusalem.

Grief over Samaria and Jerusalem

Attention! Let all the people of the world listen!
    Let the earth and everything in it hear.
The Sovereign Lord is making accusations against you;
    the Lord speaks from his holy Temple.
Look! The Lord is coming!
    He leaves his throne in heaven
    and tramples the heights of the earth.
The mountains melt beneath his feet
    and flow into the valleys
like wax in a fire,
    like water pouring down a hill.
And why is this happening?
    Because of the rebellion of Israel[a]
    yes, the sins of the whole nation.
Who is to blame for Israel’s rebellion?
    Samaria, its capital city!
Where is the center of idolatry in Judah?
    In Jerusalem, its capital!

“So I, the Lord, will make the city of Samaria
    a heap of ruins.
Her streets will be plowed up
    for planting vineyards.
I will roll the stones of her walls into the valley below,
    exposing her foundations.
All her carved images will be smashed.
    All her sacred treasures will be burned.
These things were bought with the money
    earned by her prostitution,
and they will now be carried away
    to pay prostitutes elsewhere.”

Therefore, I will mourn and lament.
    I will walk around barefoot and naked.
I will howl like a jackal
    and moan like an owl.
For my people’s wound
    is too deep to heal.
It has reached into Judah,
    even to the gates of Jerusalem.

10 Don’t tell our enemies in Gath[b];
    don’t weep at all.
You people in Beth-leaphrah,[c]
    roll in the dust to show your despair.
11 You people in Shaphir,[d]
    go as captives into exile—naked and ashamed.
The people of Zaanan[e]
    dare not come outside their walls.
The people of Beth-ezel[f] mourn,
    for their house has no support.
12 The people of Maroth[g] anxiously wait for relief,
    but only bitterness awaits them
as the Lord’s judgment reaches
    even to the gates of Jerusalem.

13 Harness your chariot horses and flee,
    you people of Lachish.[h]
You were the first city in Judah
    to follow Israel in her rebellion,
    and you led Jerusalem[i] into sin.
14 Send farewell gifts to Moresheth-gath[j];
    there is no hope of saving it.
The town of Aczib[k]
    has deceived the kings of Israel.
15 O people of Mareshah,[l]
    I will bring a conqueror to capture your town.
And the leaders[m] of Israel
    will go to Adullam.

16 Oh, people of Judah, shave your heads in sorrow,
    for the children you love will be snatched away.
Make yourselves as bald as a vulture,
    for your little ones will be exiled to distant lands.
