(每日读经11/22) 但以理书 - Daniel 5.13-31

5:13 于是但以理被领到王前;王问但以理说,你是被掳之犹大人中的但以理么?就是我的先祖王从犹大带来的么?

Then Daniel was brought before the king. The king responded and said to Daniel, Are you Daniel, one of the captives of Judah, whom my forefather the king brought from Judah?

5:14 我听说你里头有神明的灵,并且有光,又有聪明和超越的智慧。

Now I have heard about you that a spirit of the gods is in you and that light and insight and surpassing wisdom are found in you.

5:15 现在哲士和用法术的,都被领到我面前,为叫他们读这文字,把讲解告诉我,但他们都不能讲解说明。

And now the wise men, the conjurers, have been brought in before me that they might read this writing and make its interpretation known to me, but they cannot declare the interpretation of the thing.

5:16 我听说你善于讲解,能解难题;现在你若能读这文字,把讲解告诉我,就必身穿紫袍,项戴金链,在我国中掌权,位列第三。

But I have heard about you that you can give interpretations and resolve problems. If you can now read the writing and make its interpretation known to me, you shall be clothed in purple and shall have a chain of gold around your neck and shall rule as the third ruler in the kingdom.

5:17 但以理在王面前回答说,你的赠品可以归你自己;你的赏赐可以赐给别人;我却要为王读这文字,把讲解告诉王。

Then Daniel answered and said before the king, Let your gifts remain with you, or give your rewards to another; nevertheless I will read the writing for the king and make the interpretation known to him.

5:18 王阿,至高的神曾将国度、尊大、荣耀、威严,赐与你的先祖尼布甲尼撒。

Regarding you, O king, God the Most High gave to Nebuchadnezzar your forefather kingship, greatness, glory, and majesty;

5:19 因神所赐他的尊大,各族、各国、各方言的人,都在他面前战兢恐惧,他可以随意生杀,随意升降。

And because of the greatness which He gave to him, all peoples, nations, and languages trembled and feared before him; whomever he wished he slew, and whomever he wished he kept alive, and whomever he wished he raised up, and whomever he wished he brought down.

5:20 但他的心高傲,灵也刚愎,甚至行事狂傲,就被革去王位,夺去荣耀。

But when his heart was lifted up and his spirit became so arrogant that he conducted himself in pride, he was deposed from his royal throne, and his glory was taken away from him.

5:21 他被赶出离开世人,他的心变如兽心,与野驴同住;他吃草如牛,身被天露沾湿,等他知道至高的神才是人国的掌权者,随自己的意旨立人治国。

And he was driven from the sons of men, and his heart was made like that of the beasts, and his dwelling place was with the wild donkeys; men fed him with grass as they do bulls, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, until he came to know that God the Most High is the Ruler over the kingdom of men and sets over it whomever He wills.

5:22 伯沙撒阿,你是他的子孙,你虽知道这一切,你的心仍不谦卑,

And you his descendant, Belshazzar, have not humbled your heart, though you knew all this;

5:23 竟向天上的主自高,使人将祂殿中的器皿拿到你面前,你和大臣、皇后、妃嫔用这些器皿饮酒;你又赞美那不能看、不能听,无知无识,用金、银、铜、铁、木、石所造的神;却没有将尊荣归与那手中有你气息,管理你一切道路的神;

But you have exalted yourself against the Lord of the heavens; and they have brought the vessels of His house before you, and you and your lords, your wives, and your concubines have drunk wine from them; and you have praised the gods of silver and of gold, of bronze, iron, wood, and stone, which do not see nor hear nor know. But the God in whose hand is your breath and to whom all your ways belong, you have not honored.

5:24 因此从神面前差出手指头来,写这文字。

Then that part of the hand was sent from before Him, and this writing was inscribed.

5:25 所写的文字是:弥尼,弥尼,提客勒,乌法珥新。

And this is the writing that was inscribed: MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.

5:26 这话的讲解是这样。弥尼,就是神已经数算你国的年日,使其终止;

This is the interpretation of the matter: MENE-God has numbered your kingdom and brought it to an end;

5:27 提客勒,就是你被称在天平里,显出你的亏欠;

TEKEL-You have been weighed in the scales and found to be lacking.

5:28 毗勒斯,就是你的国分裂,归与玛代人和波斯人。

PERES-Your kingdom has been divided and given to the Medes and Persians.

5:29 伯沙撒下令,人就把紫袍给但以理穿上,把金链给他戴在颈项上,又传令使他在国中掌权,位列第三。

Then Belshazzar commanded; and they clothed Daniel in purple and put a chain of gold around his neck, and they made the proclamation concerning him that he should rule as the third ruler in the kingdom.

5:30 当夜迦勒底王伯沙撒被杀;

In that very night Belshazzar the Chaldean king was slain.

5:31 玛代人大利乌,约六十二岁,取了迦勒底国。

And Darius the Mede received the kingdom at about the age of sixty-two.
