那鴻書 1

1以下是關於尼尼微的預言,是伊勒歌斯人那鴻的啟示書。

耶和華向尼尼微發怒

耶和華是痛恨不貞、施行報應的上帝。
耶和華施行報應,充滿烈怒。
耶和華報應祂的仇敵,向他們發烈怒。
耶和華不輕易發怒,有偉大的能力。
耶和華斷不以有罪的為無罪。
祂行走在旋風和暴風中,
雲彩是祂腳下的塵土。
祂斥責大海,使大海乾涸;
祂使一切河流枯竭。
巴珊和迦密的草木凋零,
黎巴嫩的鮮花衰殘。
在祂面前,群山震動,丘陵消融。
在祂面前,大地隆起,
世界和世上的一切都戰慄。
祂發怒,誰能站立?
祂發烈怒,誰能承受?
祂的憤怒如火焰噴湧而出,
磐石在祂面前崩裂。
耶和華是良善的,
是人患難時的避難所;
祂看顧那些信靠祂的人。
祂必用滔滔洪水滅絕祂的敵人,
把他們驅逐到黑暗中。

尼尼微人啊,
你們為何圖謀抵擋耶和華?
祂要徹底毀滅你們,
無需擊打兩次。
10 你們像糾結的荊棘,
又像酩酊大醉的人,
要如乾稭被火燒盡。
11 你們當中有一個人,
一個邪惡的陰謀者,
圖謀抵擋耶和華。
12 耶和華說:
「儘管尼尼微勢力強大、人口眾多,
但必被剷除,化為烏有。
我的子民啊,我使你們受了苦,
但必不再使你們受苦。
13 現在我要打碎他們套在你們頸項上的軛,
鬆開你們身上的鎖鏈。」
14 尼尼微啊,
耶和華已發出有關你的命令:
「你的名不會傳於後世。
我要摧毀你神廟中雕刻和鑄造的偶像。
我要為你掘好墳墓,
因為你毫無用處。」

15 看啊,
傳喜訊、報平安的人穿山越嶺而來。
猶大啊,
慶祝你的節期,
還你許的願吧!
邪惡之人將不再侵擾你,
他們都將被徹底毀滅。

King James Version

Nahum 1

1The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.

God is jealous, and the Lord revengeth; the Lord revengeth, and is furious; the Lord will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.

The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.

He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth.

The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.

Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.

The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.

But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.

What do ye imagine against the Lord? he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.

10 For while they be folden together as thorns, and while they are drunken as drunkards, they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry.

11 There is one come out of thee, that imagineth evil against the Lord, a wicked counsellor.

12 Thus saith the Lord; Though they be quiet, and likewise many, yet thus shall they be cut down, when he shall pass through. Though I have afflicted thee, I will afflict thee no more.

13 For now will I break his yoke from off thee, and will burst thy bonds in sunder.

14 And the Lord hath given a commandment concerning thee, that no more of thy name be sown: out of the house of thy gods will I cut off the graven image and the molten image: I will make thy grave; for thou art vile.

15 Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off.
