    這是倒裝的句型,介係詞片語提到句首,後面是主詞 future 和動詞 lies 位置對調:

    In your hands and those of your friends lies future.

    = Future lies in your hands and those of your friends.

    未來掌握在你的手中,也掌握在你的朋友們的手中。

    而 and 後面的 those 是取代 the hands。

    因為前面有 your hands,英語不喜歡重複用字,就用 those of your friends 來表達 your friends' hands。 所以這句英語在意思上也可以用下列的說法:

    In your hands and those of your friends lies future.

    = In your hands and the hands of your friends lies future.

    = In your hands and your friends' hands lies future.

    = Future lies in your hands and the hands of your friends.

    = Future lies in your hands and your friends' hands.

    不過,這樣重複用字,看起來很複雜,不如上面兩句簡潔,英語程度好的人不會這樣寫的。
