詩篇 137:1-9 Chinese New Version (CNVT)
但以理書 8:1-27 Chinese New Version (CNVT)
8 伯沙撒王在位第三年，在先前顯給我的異象之後，再有一個異象向我但以理顯現。 2 我在異象中觀看，看見自己在以攔省書珊城堡裡；我在異象中繼續觀看，看見自己在烏萊河的岸邊。
3 我舉目觀看，看見一隻公綿羊，站在河邊；牠有兩個角，兩角都很高，但高低不一；那較高的角是較遲長出來的。 4 我看見那公綿羊向西、向北、向南撞去，沒有走獸能在牠面前站立得住，也沒有能拯救脫離牠手的；牠任意而行，狂妄自大。
5 我正在思考的時候，忽然有一隻公山羊從西而來，走遍全地，快得腳不沾塵；這山羊兩眼之間有一個顯眼的角。 6 牠走到我先前所看見站在河邊、那有兩個角的公綿羊那裡去，忿怒地向公綿羊猛力衝去。 7 我看見公山羊走近公綿羊，向牠發怒，撞擊牠，折斷牠的兩個角；公綿羊在牠面前站立不住，牠把公綿羊撞倒在地上，又用腳踐踏牠，沒有能拯救公綿羊脫離牠手的。 8 這公山羊非常狂妄自大；但在牠強盛的時候，那大角被折斷了；在大角原來的地方，有四個顯眼的角向天的四方長出來。
9 從這四個角中的一個角，又長出一個小角來，這小角向南、向東和向榮美之地，不斷強大起來。 10 牠漸漸長大，高及天象，把一些天象和星星摔落在地上，用腳踐踏。 11 牠狂妄自大，要高及天象之君；牠除掉獻給天象之君的常獻祭，又拆毀他的聖所。 12 因罪過的緣故，聖民（“聖民”和8:10、11的“天象”原文是同一個字）連同常獻的祭都交給牠；牠把真理丟在地上，任意而行，凡事順利。 13 我聽見一位聖者在說話，又有一位聖者問他：“這個關於除掉常獻的祭，和引致毀壞的罪過，以及踐踏聖所和聖民（“聖民”和8:10、11的“天象”原文是同一個字）的異象，要到幾時呢？” 14 他對我說：“要到二千三百個晚上和早晨，聖所才得潔淨。”
15 我但以理看見了這異象以後，就想明白它的意義；忽然有一位外貌像人的，站在我面前。 16 我又聽見從烏萊河兩岸之間，有人的聲音呼叫著說：“加百列啊！你要使這人明白這異象。” 17 他就來到我所站的地方；他來到的時候，我就害怕，臉伏在地；他對我說：“人子啊，你要明白！這異象是關於末後的時期的。” 18 他和我說話的時候，我沉睡了，臉伏在地；他觸摸我，使我站起來。 19 他說：“看哪！我要告訴你在 神忿怒審判的後期必要發生的事，因為這是有關那末後的定期的。 20 你所看見那有兩個角的公綿羊，就是瑪代和波斯王。 21 那多毛的公山羊就是希臘王；那兩眼之間的大角就是第一個王。 22 至於代替那折斷了的角，在牠原來的地方長出來的四個角，就是四個要從他的國中興起的王國，只是沒有他的權勢。
以赛亞書 13:17-22 Chinese New Version (CNVT)
耶利米書 25:12-14 Chinese New Version (CNVT)
12 “七十年滿了以後，我要按著他們的罪孽懲罰巴比倫王和那國，就是迦勒底人之地，使它永遠荒涼。”這是耶和華的宣告。 13 “我必使我所說攻擊那地的一切話應驗在那地；我所說的，就是一切記錄在這書上的，是耶利米攻擊列國所說的預言。14 因為許多國家和大君王將要奴役迦勒底人，我必按著他們的作為和他們手所作的報應他們。”
耶利米書 50:1-46 Chinese New Version (CNVT)
17 以色列是被趕散的羊，它被獅子趕逐。先是亞述王把它吞滅，現在巴比倫王尼布甲尼撒要咬碎它的骨頭。 18 因此，萬軍之耶和華 神這樣說：“看哪！我必懲罰巴比倫王和他的國土，像我以前懲罰亞述王一樣， 19 我必領以色列回到它的牧場，它必在迦密和巴珊吃草，又在以法蓮山地和基列地吃得飽足。 20 到那些日子，那時候，人要尋查以色列的罪孽，卻無所發現；要查究猶大的罪惡，卻一無所見；因為我必赦免我留下的那些人。”這是耶和華的宣告。
40 就像 神傾覆的所多瑪、蛾摩拉，
耶利米書 51:1-9 Chinese New Version (CNVT)
5 但以色列和猶大卻不會被他們的 神萬軍之耶和華遺棄，雖然他們的地在以色列聖者面前充滿了罪惡。
Psalm 130:1-8 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Hope in the Lord’s Forgiving Love.
A Song of Ascents.
130 Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord.
2 Lord, hear my voice!
Let Your ears be attentive
To the voice of my supplications.
3 If You, [a]Lord, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand?
4 But there is forgiveness with You,
That You may be feared.
5 I wait for the Lord, my soul does wait,
And [b]in His word do I hope.
6 My soul waits for the Lord
More than the watchmen for the morning;
Indeed, more than the watchmen for the morning.
7 O Israel, hope in the Lord;
For with the Lord there is lovingkindness,
And with Him is abundant redemption.
8 And He will redeem Israel
From all his iniquities.
Psalm 137:1-9 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
An Experience of the Captivity.
137 By the rivers of Babylon,
There we sat down and wept,
When we remembered Zion.
2 Upon the [a]willows in the midst of it
We hung our [b]harps.
And our tormentors mirth, saying,
“Sing us one of the songs of Zion.”
4 How can we sing the Lord’s song
In a foreign land?
5 If I forget you, O Jerusalem,
May my right hand [e]forget her skill.
6 May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth
If I do not remember you,
If I do not [f]exalt Jerusalem
Above my chief joy.
7 Remember, O Lord, against the sons of Edom
The day of Jerusalem,
Who said, “Raze it, raze it
To its very foundation.”
8 O daughter of Babylon, you [g]devastated one,
How blessed will be the one who repays you
With [h]the recompense with which you have repaid us.
9 How blessed will be the one who seizes and dashes your little ones
Against the rock.
Daniel 8:1-27 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Vision of the Ram and Goat
8 In the third year of the reign of Belshazzar the king a vision appeared to me,[a]Daniel, subsequent to the one which appeared to me [b]previously. 2 I looked in the vision, and while I was looking I was in the citadel of Susa, which is in the province of Elam; and I looked in the vision and I myself was beside the Ulai[c]Canal. 3 Then I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, a ram which had two horns was standing in front of the [d]canal. Now the two horns were [e]long, but one was [f]longer than the other, with the [g]longer one coming up last. 4 I saw the rambutting westward, northward, and southward, and no other beasts could stand before him nor was there anyone to rescue from his [h]power, but he did as he pleased and magnified himself.
5 While I was observing, behold, a male goat was coming from the west over the surface of the whole earth without touching the ground; and the [i]goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes. 6 He came up to the ram that had the two horns, which I had seen standing in front of the [j]canal, and rushed at him in his mighty wrath. 7 I saw him come beside the ram, and he was enraged at him; and he struck the ram and shattered his two horns, and the ram had no strength to withstand him. So he hurled him to the ground and trampled on him, and there was none to rescue the ram from his [k]power. 8 Then the male goat magnified himself exceedingly. But as soon as he was mighty, the large horn was broken; and in its place there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven.
The Little Horn
9 Out of one of them came forth a rather small horn which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the [l]Beautiful Land. 10 It grew up to the host of heaven and caused some of the host and some of the stars to fall to the earth, and it trampled them down. 11 It even magnified itself [m]to be equal with the [n]Commander of the host; and it removed the regular sacrifice from Him, and the place of His sanctuary was thrown down. 12 And on account of transgression the host will be given over to the horn along with the regular sacrifice; and it will fling truth to the ground and perform its will and prosper. 13 Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to that particular one who was speaking, “How long will the vision about the regular sacrifice apply, [o]while the transgression causes horror, so as to allow both the holy place and the host [p]to be trampled?” 14 He said to me, “For 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the holy place will be [q]properly restored.”
Interpretation of the Vision
15 When I, Daniel, had seen the vision, I sought [r]to understand it; and behold, standing before me was one [s]who looked like a man. 16 And I heard the voice of a man between the banks of Ulai, and he called out and said, “Gabriel, give this man an understanding of the vision.” 17 So he came near to where I was standing, and when he came I was frightened and fell on my face; but he said to me, “Son of man, understand that the vision pertains to the time of the end.”
18 Now while he was talking with me, I sank into a deep sleep with my face to the ground; but he touched me and made me stand [t]upright. 19 He said, “Behold, I am going to let you know what will occur at the final period of the indignation, for it pertains to the appointed time of the end.
The Ram’s Identity
20 The ram which you saw with the two horns represents the kings of Media and Persia.
21 The shaggy [u]goat represents the [v]kingdom of Greece, and the large horn that is between his eyes is the first king. 22 The broken horn and the four horns that arose in its place represent four kingdoms which will arise from his nation, although not with his power.
23 “In the latter period of their [w]rule,
When the transgressors have [x]run their course,
A king will arise,
24 “His power will be mighty, but not by his own power,
And he will [aa]destroy to an extraordinary degree
And prosper and perform his will;
25 “And through his shrewdness
He will cause deceit to succeed by his [ad]influence;
And he will magnify himself in his heart,
He will even [ag]oppose the Prince of princes,
But he will be broken without [ah]human agency.
26 “The vision of the evenings and mornings
Which has been told is true;
But keep the vision secret,
For it pertains to many days in the future.”
Isaiah 13:17-22 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Babylon Will Fall to the Medes
17 Behold, I am going to stir up the Medes against them,
Who will not value silver or take pleasure in gold.
18 And their bows will [a]mow down the young men,
They will not even have compassion on the fruit of the womb,
Nor will their eye pity [b]children.
19 And Babylon, the beauty of kingdoms, the glory of the Chaldeans’ pride,
Will be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
20 It will never be inhabited or lived in from generation to generation;
Nor will the Arab pitch his tent there,
Nor will shepherds make their flocks lie down there.
21 But desert creatures will lie down there,
And their houses will be full of [c]owls;
Ostriches also will live there, and [d]shaggy goats will frolic there.
22 [e]Hyenas will howl in their fortified towers
And jackals in their luxurious palaces.
Her fateful time also [f]will soon come
And her days will not be prolonged.
Jeremiah 25:12-14 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Babylon Will Be Judged
12 ‘Then it will be when seventy years are completed I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation,’ declares the Lord, ‘for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans; and I will make it an everlasting desolation. 13 I will bring upon that land all My words which I have pronounced against it, all that is written in this book which Jeremiah has prophesied against all the nations. 14 ([a]For many nations and great kings will make slaves of them, even them; and I will recompense them according to their deeds and according to the work of their hands.)’”
Jeremiah 50:1-46 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Prophecy against Babylon
50 The word which the Lord spoke concerning Babylon, the land of the Chaldeans, through Jeremiah the prophet:
2 “Declare and proclaim among the nations.
Proclaim it and lift up a standard.
Do not conceal it but say,
‘Babylon has been captured,
Her images have been put to shame, her idols have been shattered.’
3 For a nation has come up against her out of the north; it will make her land an object of horror, and there will be no inhabitant in it. Both man and beast have wandered off, they have gone away!
4 “In those days and at that time,” declares the Lord, “the sons of Israel will come,both they and the sons of Judah as well; they will go along weeping as they go, and it will be the Lord their God they will seek. 5 They will ask for the way to Zion,turning their faces [c]in its direction; [d]they [e]will come that they may join themselves to the Lord in an everlasting covenant that will not be forgotten.
6 “My people have become lost sheep;
Their shepherds have led them astray.
They have made them turn aside on the mountains;
They have gone along from mountain to hill
And have forgotten their resting place.
7 “All who came upon them have devoured them;
And their adversaries have said, ‘We are not guilty,
Inasmuch as they have sinned against the Lord who is the habitation of righteousness,
Even the Lord, the hope of their fathers.’
8 “Wander away from the midst of Babylon
And [f]go forth from the land of the Chaldeans;
Be also like male goats [g]at the head of the flock.
9 “For behold, I am going to arouse and bring up against Babylon
A horde of great nations from the land of the north,
And they will draw up their battle lines against her;
From there she will be taken captive.
Their arrows will be like [h]an expert warrior
Who does not return empty-handed.
10 “[i]Chaldea will become plunder;
All who plunder her will have enough,” declares the Lord.
11 “Because you are glad, because you are jubilant,
O you who pillage My heritage,
Because you skip about [j]like a threshing heifer
And neigh like [k]stallions,
12 Your mother [l]will be greatly ashamed,
She who gave you birth [m]will be humiliated.
Behold, she will be the least of the nations,
A wilderness, a parched land and a desert.
13 “Because of the indignation of the Lord she will not be inhabited,
But she will be completely desolate;
Everyone who passes by Babylon will be horrified
And will hiss because of all her wounds.
14 “Draw up your battle lines against Babylon on every side,
All you who [n]bend the bow;
Shoot at her, do not be sparing with your arrows,
For she has sinned against the Lord.
15 “Raise your battle cry against her on every side!
She has given [o]herself up, her pillars have fallen,
Her walls have been torn down.
For this is the vengeance of the Lord:
Take vengeance on her;
As she has done to others, so do to her.
16 “Cut off the sower from Babylon
And the one who wields the sickle at the time of harvest;
From before [p]the sword of the oppressor
They will each turn back to his own people
And they will each flee to his own land.
17 “Israel is a scattered [q]flock, the lions have driven them away. The first one who devoured him was the king of Assyria, and this last one who has broken his bones is Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon. 18 Therefore thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: ‘Behold, I am going to punish the king of Babylon and his land, just as I punished the king of Assyria. 19 And I will bring Israel back to his pasture and he will graze on Carmel and Bashan, and his [r]desire will be satisfied in the hill country of Ephraim and Gilead. 20 In those days and at that time,’ declares the Lord, ‘search will be made for the iniquity of Israel, but there will be none; and for the sins of Judah, but they will not be found; for I will pardon those whom I leave as a remnant.’
21 “Against the land of [s]Merathaim, go up against it,
And against the inhabitants of [t]Pekod.
Slay and [u]utterly destroy them,” declares the Lord,
“And do according to all that I have commanded you.
22 “The noise of battle is in the land,
And great destruction.
23 “How the hammer of the whole earth
Has been cut off and broken!
How Babylon has become
An object of horror among the nations!
24 “I set a snare for you and you were also caught, O Babylon,
While you yourself were not aware;
You have been found and also seized
Because you have engaged in conflict with the Lord.”
25 The Lord has opened His armory
And has brought forth the weapons of His indignation,
For it is a work of the Lord [v]God of hosts
In the land of the Chaldeans.
26 Come to her from the [w]farthest border;
Open up her barns,
Pile her up like heaps
And [x]utterly destroy her,
Let nothing be left to her.
27 Put all her young bulls to the sword;
Let them go down to the slaughter!
Woe be upon them, for their day has come,
The time of their punishment.
28 There is a sound of fugitives and refugees from the land of Babylon,
To declare in Zion the vengeance of the Lord our God,
Vengeance for His temple.
29 “Summon [y]many against Babylon,
All those who [z]bend the bow:
Encamp against her on every side,
Let there be no escape[aa].
Repay her according to her work;
According to all that she has done, so do to her;
For she has become arrogant against the Lord,
Against the Holy One of Israel.
30 “Therefore her young men will fall in her streets,
And all her men of war will be [ab]silenced in that day,” declares the Lord.
31 “Behold, I am against you, O [ac]arrogant one,”
Declares the Lord [ad]God of hosts,
“For your day has come,
The time [ae]when I will punish you.
32 “The [af]arrogant one will stumble and fall
With no one to raise him up;
And I will set fire to his cities
And it will devour all his environs.”
33 Thus says the Lord of hosts,
“The sons of Israel are oppressed,
And the sons of Judah as well;
And all who took them captive have held them fast,
They have refused to let them go.
34 “Their Redeemer is strong, the Lord of hosts is His name;
He will vigorously plead their case
So that He may bring rest to [ag]the earth,
But turmoil to the inhabitants of Babylon.
35 “A sword against the Chaldeans,” declares the Lord,
“And against the inhabitants of Babylon
And against her officials and her wise men!
36 “A sword against the oracle priests, and they will become fools!
A sword against her mighty men, and they will be [ah]shattered!
And against all the [ak]foreigners who are in the midst of her,
And they will become women!
A sword against her treasures, and they will be plundered!
38 “A [al]drought on her waters, and they will be dried up!
For it is a land of idols,
And they are mad over fearsome idols.
39 “Therefore the desert creatures will live there along with the jackals;
The ostriches also will live in it,
And it will never again be inhabited
Or dwelt in from generation to generation.
40 “As when God overthrew Sodom
And Gomorrah with its neighbors,” declares the Lord,
“No man will live there,
Nor will any son of man reside in it.
41 “Behold, a people is coming from the north,
And a great nation and many kings
Will be aroused from the remote parts of the earth.
42 “They seize their bow and javelin;
They are cruel and have no mercy.
Their voice roars like the sea;
And they ride on horses,
Marshalled like a man for the battle
Against you, O daughter of Babylon.
43 “The king of Babylon has heard the report about them,
And his hands hang limp;
Distress has gripped him,
Agony like a woman in childbirth.
44 “Behold, one will come up like a lion from the [am]thicket of the Jordan to [an]a perennially watered pasture; for in an instant I will make them run away from it, and whoever is chosen I will appoint over it. For who is like Me, and who will summon Me into court? And who then is the shepherd who can stand before Me?” 45 Therefore hear the plan of the Lord which He has planned against Babylon, and His purposes which He has purposed against the land of the Chaldeans: surely they will drag them off, even the little ones of the flock; surely He will make their [ao]pasture desolate because of them. 46 At the [ap]shout, “Babylon has been seized!” the earth is shaken, and an outcry is heard among the nations.
Jeremiah 51:1-9 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Babylon Judged for Sins against Israel
51 Thus says the Lord:
“Behold, I am going to arouse against Babylon
And against the inhabitants of [a]Leb-kamai
[b]The spirit of a destroyer.
2 “I will dispatch [c]foreigners to Babylon that they may winnow her
And may devastate her land;
For on every side they will be opposed to her
In the day of her calamity.
[h]Nor let him rise up in his scale-armor;
So do not spare her young men;
Devote all her army to destruction.
4 “They will fall down [i]slain in the land of the Chaldeans,
And pierced through in their streets.”
5 For neither Israel nor Judah has been [j]forsaken
By his God, the Lord of hosts,
Although their land is full of guilt
[k]Before the Holy One of Israel.
6 Flee from the midst of Babylon,
And each of you save his life!
For this is the Lord’s time of vengeance;
He is going to render recompense to her.
7 Babylon has been a golden cup in the hand of the Lord,
Intoxicating all the earth.
The nations have drunk of her wine;
Therefore the nations are going mad.
8 Suddenly Babylon has fallen and been broken;
Wail over her!
Bring [n]balm for her pain;
Perhaps she may be healed.
9 We applied healing to Babylon, but she was not healed;
Forsake her and let us each go to his own country,
For her judgment has reached to heaven
And [o]towers up to the very skies.
