King James Version

Isaiah 1

1The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.

Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the Lord hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.

The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.

Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.

Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.

Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.

Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.

10 Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.

11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

12 When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?

13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.

15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.

22 Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:

23 Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.

24 Therefore saith the Lord, the Lord of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies:

25 And I will turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin:

26 And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.

27 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.

28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the Lord shall be consumed.

29 For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen.

30 For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water.

31 And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them.

以赛亚书 1

1犹大王乌西雅、约坦、亚哈斯和希西迦执政期间,亚摩斯的儿子以赛亚看到了以下有关犹大和耶路撒冷的异象。

上帝责备叛逆的子民

诸天啊,请听!
大地啊,要侧耳听!
耶和华说:
“我把孩子抚育成人,
他们竟然背叛我。
牛认识主人,
驴也认得主人的槽,
以色列却不认识,
我的子民却不明白。”

唉!你们这罪恶的民族,
恶贯满盈的百姓,
作恶的子孙,
败坏的儿女!
你们背弃耶和华,
藐视以色列的圣者,
与祂疏远。

你们为什么一再叛逆?
你们还要受责打吗?
你们已经头破血流,
身心疲惫。
你们已经体无完肤,
从头到脚伤痕累累,
伤口没有清洗,
没有包扎,也没有敷药。

你们的土地荒凉,
城邑化为灰烬。
你们亲眼目睹自己的田园被外族人侵吞、毁坏、变成不毛之地。
仅存的锡安[a]城也像葡萄园里的草棚、
瓜田中的茅舍、
被困无援的孤城。
若不是万军之耶和华让我们一些人存活,
我们早就像所多玛和蛾摩拉一样灭亡了。

10 你们这些“所多玛”的首领啊,
要聆听耶和华的话!
你们这些“蛾摩拉”的百姓啊,
要侧耳听我们上帝的训诲!
11 耶和华说:
“你们献上许多祭物,对我有什么用呢?
我厌烦公绵羊的燔祭和肥畜的脂肪,
我不喜欢公牛、羊羔和公山羊的血。

12 “你们来敬拜我的时候,
谁要求你们带着这些来践踏我的院宇呢?
13 不要再带毫无意义的祭物了。
我憎恶你们烧的香,
厌恶你们的朔日[b]、安息日和大会。
你们又作恶又举行庄严的聚会,
令我无法容忍。
14 我憎恶你们的朔日及其他节期,
它们成了我的重担,
令我厌倦。
15 你们举手祷告,我必掩面不理。
即使你们祷告再多,
我也不会听,
因为你们双手沾满鲜血。
16 你们要洗净自己,
停止作恶,
不要让我再看见你们的恶行。
17 你们要学习行善,
追求正义,
帮助受欺压的,
替孤儿辩护,
为寡妇申冤。”
18 耶和华说:
“来吧,我们彼此理论!
你们的罪虽如猩红,
也必洁白如雪;
你们的罪虽如绯红,
也必白如羊毛。
19 如果你们愿意听从,
就必享用这地方的美好出产。
20 如果你们执意叛逆,
就必丧身刀下。”
这是耶和华亲口说的。
21 耶路撒冷啊,
你这忠贞的妻子竟变成了妓女!
你从前充满公平,
是公义之家,
现在却住着凶手。
22 你曾经像银子,现在却像渣滓;
曾经像美酒,现在却像搀了水的酒。
23 你的首领是叛逆之徒,
与盗贼为伍,
个个收受贿赂,
贪图好处,
不为孤儿辩护,
不替寡妇申冤。

24 所以,主——万军之耶和华,
以色列的大能者说:
“我要向我的敌人报仇雪恨。
25 我必攻击你,
用碱炼净你的渣滓,
除尽你的杂质。
26 我必像从前一样赐你审判官和谋士。
之后,你必被称为公义之城、
忠信之邑。”

27 耶和华必因祂的公正救赎锡安,
必因祂的公义拯救城中悔改的人。
28 但叛逆之辈和犯罪之徒必遭毁灭,
背弃耶和华的人必灭亡。
29 你们必因在橡树下,
在你们选择的园子里祭拜偶像而蒙羞。
30 你们必像枯萎的橡树,
又如无水的园子。
31 你们中间有权势的人必因他们的恶行而遭毁灭,
好像火花点燃枯木,无人能救。
