Baruch  巴路克

Chapters 1, 2

The message of Baruch, written in Babylon for the exiles living there,
and sent to Jerusalem for the people still there:

Let us pray that our genuine service for the king of Babylon
will win his favor and protection.

To us belongs a look of shame, because we have not listened
to the message of the Lord our God.

Lord, please listen to our prayer.
Rescue us from exile and humiliation.

1 - 2

這些話是巴路克在流放
巴比倫時,給仍留在耶路撒冷的人所寫的:

讓我們祈禱,藉我們真誠服侍巴比倫王
而贏得他的好感和保護。

恥辱屬於我們,
因為我們沒有聽從我們的聲音。

,請聽我們的禱告,
從流徙和羞辱中拯救我們。

Dear God, please help all exiles return to their homeland

,請幫助所有流放者返回祖國

Chapters  3, 4

Listen, Israel, to commands that bring life and peace.
Remember all that God has taught us.

As by your will you strayed away from God,
so now turn back and search for him ten times as hard.

3 - 4

以色列,請聽取帶來生命與和平的律法,
謹記的所有教導。 

如按照你的意願而離開了,那麽現在
要回頭,以十倍的努力尋找

Lord, please help us not to forget you

,請幫助我們不要忘記


Chapter 6

Because of your sins, you will be exiles in Babylon
for 7 generations.

In Babylon when you  see all sorts of idols being worshipped by the local people, say in your hearts:
"Master, it is you  we must worship."

6

因你們的罪,
你們七代都要流徙
巴比倫

巴比倫當你們看到當地人敬拜各種偶像時,
就在心中說:「
,只有堪受敬拜。」

Lord, when we are in places where people are worshipping idols,
please help us remember to pray in our hearts:
 "Master, it is you we  worship"

,當我們在有當地人敬拜偶像的地方,
請幫助我們謹記在心中禱告:

,只有堪受敬拜。」
