旧约 -- 士师记(Judges) -- 第 7 章 ( 本篇共有 21 章 )[]

7:1 耶路巴力就是基甸,他和一切跟随的人早晨起来,在哈律泉旁安营。米甸营在他们北边的平原,靠近摩利冈。

Then Jerubbaal, who is Gideon, and all the people that were with him, rose up early, and pitched beside the well of Harod: so that the host of the Midianites were on the north side of them, by the hill of Moreh, in the valley.

7:2 耶和华对基甸说,跟随你的人过多,我不能将米甸人交在他们手中,免得以色列人向我夸大,说,是我们自己的手救了我们。

And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people that are with thee are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, Mine own hand hath saved me.

7:3 现在你要向这些人宣告说,凡惧怕胆怯的,可以离开基列山回去。于是有二万二千人回去,只剩下一万。

Now therefore go to, proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, Whosoever is fearful and afraid, let him return and depart early from mount Gilead. And there returned of the people twenty and two thousand; and there remained ten thousand.

7:4 耶和华对基甸说,人还是过多。你要带他们下到水旁,我好在那里为你试试他们。我指点谁说,这人可以同你去,他就可以同你去。我指点谁说,这人不可同你去,他就不可同你去。

And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people are yet too many; bring them down unto the water, and I will try them for thee there: and it shall be, that of whom I say unto thee, This shall go with thee, the same shall go with thee; and of whomsoever I say unto thee, This shall not go with thee, the same shall not go.

7:5 基甸就带他们下到水旁。耶和华对基甸说,凡用舌头舔水,像狗舔的,要使他单站在一处。凡跪下喝水的,也要使他单站在一处。

So he brought down the people unto the water: and the LORD said unto Gideon, Every one that lappeth of the water with his tongue, as a dog lappeth, him shalt thou set by himself; likewise every one that boweth down upon his knees to drink.

7:6 于是用手捧着舔水的有三百人,其馀的都跪下喝水。

And the number of them that lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, were three hundred men: but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water.

7:7 耶和华对基甸说,我要用这舔水的三百人拯救你们,将米甸人交在你手中。其馀的人都可以各归各处去。

And the LORD said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the other people go every man unto his place.

7:8 这三百人就带着食物和角。其馀的以色列人,基甸都打发他们各归各的帐棚,只留下这三百人。米甸营在他下边的平原里。

So the people took victuals in their hand, and their trumpets: and he sent all the rest of Israel every man unto his tent, and retained those three hundred men: and the host of Midian was beneath him in the valley.

7:9 当那夜,耶和华吩咐基甸说,起来,下到米甸营里去,因我已将他们交在你手中。

And it came to pass the same night, that the LORD said unto him, Arise, get thee down unto the host; for I have delivered it into thine hand.

7:10 倘若你怕下去,就带你的仆人普拉下到那营里去。

But if thou fear to go down, go thou with Phurah thy servant down to the host:

7:11 你必听见他们所说的,然后你就有胆量下去攻营。于是基甸带着仆人普拉下到营旁。

And thou shalt hear what they say; and afterward shall thine hands be strengthened to go down unto the host. Then went he down with Phurah his servant unto the outside of the armed men that were in the host.

7:12 米甸人,亚玛力人,和一切东方人都布散在平原,如同蝗虫那样多。他们的骆驼无数,多如海边的沙。

And the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the children of the east lay along in the valley like grasshoppers for multitude; and their camels were without number, as the sand by the sea side for multitude.

7:13 基甸到了,就听见一人将梦告诉同伴说,我作了一梦,梦见一个大麦饼滚入米甸营中,到了帐幕,将帐幕撞倒,帐幕就翻转倾覆了。

And when Gideon was come, behold, there was a man that told a dream unto his fellow, and said, Behold, I dreamed a dream, and, lo, a cake of barley bread tumbled into the host of Midian, and came unto a tent, and smote it that it fell, and overturned it, that the tent lay along.

7:14 那同伴说,这不是别的,乃是以色列人约阿施的儿子基甸的刀。神已将米甸和全军都交在他的手中。

And his fellow answered and said, This is nothing else save the sword of Gideon the son of Joash, a man of Israel: for into his hand hath God delivered Midian, and all the host.

7:15 基甸听见这梦和梦的讲解,就敬拜神,回到以色列营中,说,起来吧。耶和华已将米甸的军队交在你们手中了。

And it was so, when Gideon heard the telling of the dream, and the interpretation thereof, that he worshipped, and returned into the host of Israel, and said, Arise; for the LORD hath delivered into your hand the host of Midian.

7:16 于是基甸将三百人分作三队,把角和空瓶交在各人手里,瓶内都藏着火把,

And he divided the three hundred men into three companies, and he put a trumpet in every man's hand, with empty pitchers, and lamps within the pitchers.

7:17 吩咐他们说,你们要看我行事,我到了营的旁边怎样行,你们也要怎样行。

And he said unto them, Look on me, and do likewise: and, behold, when I come to the outside of the camp, it shall be that, as I do, so shall ye do.

7:18 我和一切跟随我的人吹角的时候,你们也要在营的四围吹角,喊叫说,耶和华和基甸的刀。

When I blow with a trumpet, I and all that are with me, then blow ye the trumpets also on every side of all the camp, and say, The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon.

7:19 基甸和跟随他的一百人,在三更之初才换更的时候,来到营旁,就吹角,打破手中的瓶。

So Gideon, and the hundred men that were with him, came unto the outside of the camp in the beginning of the middle watch; and they had but newly set the watch: and they blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers that were in their hands.

7:20 三队的人就都吹角,打破瓶子,左手拿着火把,右手拿着角,喊叫说,耶和华和基甸的刀。

And the three companies blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands, and the trumpets in their right hands to blow withal: and they cried, The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon.

7:21 他们在营的四围各站各的地方。全营的人都乱窜。三百人呐喊,使他们逃跑。

And they stood every man in his place round about the camp; and all the host ran, and cried, and fled.

7:22 三百人就吹角,耶和华使全营的人用刀互相击杀,逃到西利拉的伯哈示他,直逃到靠近他巴的亚伯米何拉。

And the three hundred blew the trumpets, and the LORD set every man's sword against his fellow, even throughout all the host: and the host fled to Bethshittah in Zererath, and to the border of Abelmeholah, unto Tabbath.

7:23 以色列人就从拿弗他利,亚设,和玛拿西全地聚集来追赶米甸人。

And the men of Israel gathered themselves together out of Naphtali, and out of Asher, and out of all Manasseh, and pursued after the Midianites.

7:24 基甸打发人走遍以法莲山地,说,你们下来攻击米甸人,争先把守约旦河的渡口,直到伯巴拉。于是以法莲的众人聚集,把守约旦河的渡口,直到伯巴拉,

And Gideon sent messengers throughout all mount Ephraim, saying, Come down against the Midianites, and take before them the waters unto Bethbarah and Jordan. Then all the men of Ephraim gathered themselves together, and took the waters unto Bethbarah and Jordan.

7:25 捉住了米甸人的两个首领,一名俄立,一名西伊伯。将俄立杀在俄立磐石上,将西伊伯杀在西伊伯酒榨那里。又追赶米甸人,将俄立和西伊伯的首级带过约旦河,到基甸那里。

And they took two princes of the Midianites, Oreb and Zeeb; and they slew Oreb upon the rock Oreb, and Zeeb they slew at the winepress of Zeeb, and pursued Midian, and brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon on the other side Jordan.



旧约 -- 士师记(Judges) -- 第 8 章 ( 本篇共有 21 章 )[]

8:1 以法莲人对基甸说,你去与米甸人争战,没有招我们同去,为什么这样待我们呢。他们就与基甸大大地争吵。

And the men of Ephraim said unto him, Why hast thou served us thus, that thou calledst us not, when thou wentest to fight with the Midianites? And they did chide with him sharply.

8:2 基甸对他们说,我所行的岂能比你们所行的呢。以法莲拾取剩下的葡萄不强过亚比以谢所摘的葡萄吗。

And he said unto them, What have I done now in comparison of you? Is not the gleaning of the grapes of Ephraim better than the vintage of Abiezer?

8:3 神已将米甸人的两个首领俄立和西伊伯交在你们手中。我所行的岂能比你们所行的呢。基甸说了这话,以法莲人的怒气就消了。

God hath delivered into your hands the princes of Midian, Oreb and Zeeb: and what was I able to do in comparison of you? Then their anger was abated toward him, when he had said that.

8:4 基甸和跟随他的三百人到约旦河过渡,虽然疲乏,还是追赶。

And Gideon came to Jordan, and passed over, he, and the three hundred men that were with him, faint, yet pursuing them.

8:5 基甸对疏割人说,求你们拿饼来给跟随我的人吃,因为他们疲乏了。我们追赶米甸人的两个王西巴和撒慕拿。

And he said unto the men of Succoth, Give, I pray you, loaves of bread unto the people that follow me; for they be faint, and I am pursuing after Zebah and Zalmunna, kings of Midian.

8:6 疏割人的首领回答说,西巴和撒慕拿已经在你手里,你使我们将饼给你的军兵吗。

And the princes of Succoth said, Are the hands of Zebah and Zalmunna now in thine hand, that we should give bread unto thine army?

8:7 基甸说,耶和华将西巴和撒慕拿交在我手之后,我就用野地的荆条和枳棘打伤你们。

And Gideon said, Therefore when the LORD hath delivered Zebah and Zalmunna into mine hand, then I will tear your flesh with the thorns of the wilderness and with briers.

8:8 基甸从那里上到毗努伊勒,对那里的人也是这样说。毗努伊勒人也与疏割人回答他的话一样。

And he went up thence to Penuel, and spake unto them likewise: and the men of Penuel answered him as the men of Succoth had answered him.

8:9 他向毗努伊勒人说,我平平安安回来的时候,我必拆毁这楼。

And he spake also unto the men of Penuel, saying, When I come again in peace, I will break down this tower.

8:10 那时西巴和撒慕拿,并跟随他们的军队都在加各,约有一万五千人,就是东方人全军所剩下的。已经被杀约有十二万拿刀的。

Now Zebah and Zalmunna were in Karkor, and their hosts with them, about fifteen thousand men, all that were left of all the hosts of the children of the east: for there fell an hundred and twenty thousand men that drew sword.

8:11 基甸就由挪巴和约比哈东边,从住帐棚人的路上去,杀败了米甸人的军兵,因为他们坦然无惧。

And Gideon went up by the way of them that dwelt in tents on the east of Nobah and Jogbehah, and smote the host: for the host was secure.

8:12 西巴和撒慕拿逃跑。基甸追赶他们,捉住米甸的二王西巴和撒慕拿,惊散全军。

And when Zebah and Zalmunna fled, he pursued after them, and took the two kings of Midian, Zebah and Zalmunna, and discomfited all the host.

8:13 约阿施的儿子基甸由希列斯坡从阵上回来,

And Gideon the son of Joash returned from battle before the sun was up,

8:14 捉住疏割的一个少年人,问他,疏割的首领长老是谁。他就将首领长老七十七个人的名字写出来。

And caught a young man of the men of Succoth, and enquired of him: and he described unto him the princes of Succoth, and the elders thereof, even threescore and seventeen men.

8:15 基甸到了疏割,对那里的人说,你们从前讥诮我说,西巴和撒慕拿已经在你手里,你使我们将饼给跟随你的疲乏人吗。现在西巴和撒慕拿在这里。

And he came unto the men of Succoth, and said, Behold Zebah and Zalmunna, with whom ye did upbraid me, saying, Are the hands of Zebah and Zalmunna now in thine hand, that we should give bread unto thy men that are weary?

8:16 于是捉住那城内的长老,用野地的荆条和枳棘责打(原文作指教)疏割人。

And he took the elders of the city, and thorns of the wilderness and briers, and with them he taught the men of Succoth.

8:17 又拆了毗努伊勒的楼,杀了那城里的人。

And he beat down the tower of Penuel, and slew the men of the city.

8:18 基甸问西巴和撒慕拿说,你们在他泊山所杀的人是什么样式。回答说,他们好像你,各人都有王子的样式。

Then said he unto Zebah and Zalmunna, What manner of men were they whom ye slew at Tabor? And they answered, As thou art, so were they; each one resembled the children of a king.

8:19 基甸说,他们是我同母的弟兄,我指着永生的耶和华起誓,你们从前若存留他们的性命,我如今就不杀你们了。

And he said, They were my brethren, even the sons of my mother: as the LORD liveth, if ye had saved them alive, I would not slay you.

8:20 于是对他的长子益帖说,你起来杀他们。但益帖因为是童子,害怕,不敢拔刀。

And he said unto Jether his firstborn, Up, and slay them. But the youth drew not his sword: for he feared, because he was yet a youth.

8:21 西巴和撒慕拿说,你自己起来杀我们吧。因为人如何,力量也是如何。基甸就起来,杀了西巴和撒慕拿,夺获他们骆驼项上戴的月牙圈。

Then Zebah and Zalmunna said, Rise thou, and fall upon us: for as the man is, so is his strength. And Gideon arose, and slew Zebah and Zalmunna, and took away the ornaments that were on their camels' necks.

8:22 以色列人对基甸说,你既救我们脱离米甸人的手,愿你和你的儿孙管理我们。

Then the men of Israel said unto Gideon, Rule thou over us, both thou, and thy son, and thy son's son also: for thou hast delivered us from the hand of Midian.

8:23 基甸说,我不管理你们,我的儿子也不管理你们,惟有耶和华管理你们。

And Gideon said unto them, I will not rule over you, neither shall my son rule over you: the LORD shall rule over you.

8:24 基甸又对他们说,我有一件事求你们,请你们各人将所夺的耳环给我。原来仇敌是以实玛利人,都是戴金耳环的。)

And Gideon said unto them, I would desire a request of you, that ye would give me every man the earrings of his prey. (For they had golden earrings, because they were Ishmaelites.)

8:25 他们说,我们情愿给你。就铺开一件外衣,各人将所夺的耳环丢在其上。

And they answered, We will willingly give them. And they spread a garment, and did cast therein every man the earrings of his prey.

8:26 基甸所要出来的金耳环重一千七百舍客勒金子。此外还有米甸王所戴的月环,耳坠,和所穿的紫色衣服,并骆驼项上的金链子。

And the weight of the golden earrings that he requested was a thousand and seven hundred shekels of gold; beside ornaments, and collars, and purple raiment that was on the kings of Midian, and beside the chains that were about their camels' necks.

8:27 基甸以此制造了一个以弗得,设立在本城俄弗拉。后来以色列人拜那以弗得行了邪淫。这就作了基甸和他全家的网罗。

And Gideon made an ephod thereof, and put it in his city, even in Ophrah: and all Israel went thither a whoring after it: which thing became a snare unto Gideon, and to his house.

8:28 这样,米甸人被以色列人制伏了,不敢再抬头。基甸还在的日子,国中太平四十年。

Thus was Midian subdued before the children of Israel, so that they lifted up their heads no more. And the country was in quietness forty years in the days of Gideon.

8:29 约阿施的儿子耶路巴力回去,住在自己家里。

And Jerubbaal the son of Joash went and dwelt in his own house.

8:30 基甸有七十个亲生的儿子,因为他有许多的妻。

And Gideon had threescore and ten sons of his body begotten: for he had many wives.

8:31 他的妾住在示剑,也给他生了一个儿子。基甸与他起名叫亚比米勒。

And his concubine that was in Shechem, she also bare him a son, whose name he called Abimelech.

8:32 约阿施的儿子基甸,年纪老迈而死,葬在亚比以谢族的俄弗拉,在他父亲约阿施的坟墓里。

And Gideon the son of Joash died in a good old age, and was buried in the sepulchre of Joash his father, in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.

8:33 基甸死后,以色列人又去随从诸巴力行邪淫,以巴力比利土为他们的神。

And it came to pass, as soon as Gideon was dead, that the children of Israel turned again, and went a whoring after Baalim, and made Baalberith their god.

8:34 以色列人不记念耶和华他们的神,就是拯救他们脱离四围仇敌之手的,

And the children of Israel remembered not the LORD their God, who had delivered them out of the hands of all their enemies on every side:

8:35 也不照着耶路巴力,就是基甸向他们所施的恩惠厚待他的家。

Neither shewed they kindness to the house of Jerubbaal, namely, Gideon, according to all the goodness which he had shewed unto Israel.



旧约 -- 士师记(Judges) -- 第 9 章 ( 本篇共有 21 章 )[]

9:1 耶路巴力的儿子亚比米勒到了示剑见他的众母舅,对他们和他外祖全家的人说,

And Abimelech the son of Jerubbaal went to Shechem unto his mother's brethren, and communed with them, and with all the family of the house of his mother's father, saying,

9:2 请你们问示剑的众人说,是耶路巴力的众子七十人都管理你们好呢。还是一人管理你们好呢。你们又要记念我是你们的骨肉。

Speak, I pray you, in the ears of all the men of Shechem, Whether is better for you, either that all the sons of Jerubbaal, which are threescore and ten persons, reign over you, or that one reign over you? remember also that I am your bone and your flesh.

9:3 他的众母舅便将这一切话为他说给示剑人听,示剑人的心就归向亚比米勒。他们说,他原是我们的弟兄。

And his mother's brethren spake of him in the ears of all the men of Shechem all these words: and their hearts inclined to follow Abimelech; for they said, He is our brother.

9:4 就从巴力比利土的庙中取了七十舍客勒银子给亚比米勒。亚比米勒用以雇了些匪徒跟随他。

And they gave him threescore and ten pieces of silver out of the house of Baalberith, wherewith Abimelech hired vain and light persons, which followed him.

9:5 他往俄弗拉到他父亲的家,将他弟兄,耶路巴力的众子七十人都杀在一块磐石上。只剩下耶路巴力的小儿子约坦,因为他躲藏了。

And he went unto his father's house at Ophrah, and slew his brethren the sons of Jerubbaal, being threescore and ten persons, upon one stone: notwithstanding yet Jotham the youngest son of Jerubbaal was left; for he hid himself.

9:6 示剑人和米罗人都一同聚集,往示剑橡树旁的柱子那里,立亚比米勒为王。

And all the men of Shechem gathered together, and all the house of Millo, and went, and made Abimelech king, by the plain of the pillar that was in Shechem.

9:7 有人将这事告诉约坦,他就去站在基利心山顶上,向众人大声喊叫说,示剑人哪,你们要听我的话,神也就听你们的话。

And when they told it to Jotham, he went and stood in the top of mount Gerizim, and lifted up his voice, and cried, and said unto them, Hearken unto me, ye men of Shechem, that God may hearken unto you.

9:8 有一时树木要膏一树为王,管理他们,就去对橄榄树说,请你作我们的王。

The trees went forth on a time to anoint a king over them; and they said unto the olive tree, Reign thou over us.

9:9 橄榄树回答说,我岂肯止住供奉神和尊重人的油,飘摇在众树之上呢。

But the olive tree said unto them, Should I leave my fatness, wherewith by me they honour God and man, and go to be promoted over the trees?

9:10 树木对无花果树说,请你来作我们的王。

And the trees said to the fig tree, Come thou, and reign over us.

9:11 无花果树回答说,我岂肯止住所结甜美的果子,飘摇在众树之上呢。

But the fig tree said unto them, Should I forsake my sweetness, and my good fruit, and go to be promoted over the trees?

9:12 树木对葡萄树说,请你来作我们的王。

Then said the trees unto the vine, Come thou, and reign over us.

9:13 葡萄树回答说,我岂肯止住使神和人喜乐的新酒,飘摇在众树之上呢。

And the vine said unto them, Should I leave my wine, which cheereth God and man, and go to be promoted over the trees?

9:14 众树对荆棘说,请你来作我们的王。

Then said all the trees unto the bramble, Come thou, and reign over us.

9:15 荆棘回答说,你们若诚诚实实地膏我为王,就要投在我的荫下。不然,愿火从荆棘里出来,烧灭黎巴嫩的香柏树。

And the bramble said unto the trees, If in truth ye anoint me king over you, then come and put your trust in my shadow: and if not, let fire come out of the bramble, and devour the cedars of Lebanon.

9:16 现在你们立亚比米勒为王,若按诚实正直善待耶路巴力和他的全家,这就是酬他的劳。

Now therefore, if ye have done truly and sincerely, in that ye have made Abimelech king, and if ye have dealt well with Jerubbaal and his house, and have done unto him according to the deserving of his hands;

9:17 从前我父冒死为你们争战,救了你们脱离米甸人的手。

(For my father fought for you, and adventured his life far, and delivered you out of the hand of Midian:

9:18 你们如今起来攻击我的父家,将他众子七十人杀在一块磐石上,又立他婢女所生的儿子亚比米勒为示剑人的王。他原是你们的弟兄。

And ye are risen up against my father's house this day, and have slain his sons, threescore and ten persons, upon one stone, and have made Abimelech, the son of his maidservant, king over the men of Shechem, because he is your brother;)

9:19 你们如今若按诚实正直待耶路巴力和他的家,就可因亚比米勒得欢乐,他也可因你们得欢乐。

If ye then have dealt truly and sincerely with Jerubbaal and with his house this day, then rejoice ye in Abimelech, and let him also rejoice in you:

9:20 不然,愿火从亚比米勒发出,烧灭示剑人和米罗众人,又愿火从示剑人和米罗人中出来,烧灭亚比米勒。

But if not, let fire come out from Abimelech, and devour the men of Shechem, and the house of Millo; and let fire come out from the men of Shechem, and from the house of Millo, and devour Abimelech.

9:21 约坦因怕他弟兄亚比米勒,就逃跑,来到比珥,住在那里。

And Jotham ran away, and fled, and went to Beer, and dwelt there, for fear of Abimelech his brother.

9:22 亚比米勒管理以色列人三年。

When Abimelech had reigned three years over Israel,

9:23 神使恶魔降在亚比米勒和示剑人中间,示剑人就以诡诈待亚比米勒。

Then God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech:

9:24 这是要叫耶路巴力七十个儿子所受的残害归与他们的哥哥亚比米勒,又叫那流他们血的罪归与帮助他杀弟兄的示剑人。

That the cruelty done to the threescore and ten sons of Jerubbaal might come, and their blood be laid upon Abimelech their brother, which slew them; and upon the men of Shechem, which aided him in the killing of his brethren.

9:25 示剑人在山顶上设埋伏,等候亚比米勒。凡从他们那里经过的人,他们就抢夺。有人将这事告诉亚比米勒。

And the men of Shechem set liers in wait for him in the top of the mountains, and they robbed all that came along that way by them: and it was told Abimelech.

9:26 以别的儿子迦勒和他的弟兄来到示剑,示剑人都信靠他。

And Gaal the son of Ebed came with his brethren, and went over to Shechem: and the men of Shechem put their confidence in him.

9:27 示剑人出城到田间去,摘下葡萄,踹酒,设摆筵宴,进他们神的庙中吃喝,咒诅亚比米勒。

And they went out into the fields, and gathered their vineyards, and trode the grapes, and made merry, and went into the house of their god, and did eat and drink, and cursed Abimelech.

9:28 以别的儿子迦勒说,亚比米勒是谁。示剑是谁。使我们服事他呢。他不是耶路巴力的儿子吗。他的帮手不是西布勒吗。你们可以服事示剑的父亲哈抹的后裔。我们为何服事亚比米勒呢?

And Gaal the son of Ebed said, Who is Abimelech, and who is Shechem, that we should serve him? is not he the son of Jerubbaal? and Zebul his officer? serve the men of Hamor the father of Shechem: for why should we serve him?

9:29 惟愿这民归我的手下,我就除掉亚比米勒。迦勒又对亚比米勒说,增添你的军兵出来吧。

And would to God this people were under my hand! then would I remove Abimelech. And he said to Abimelech, Increase thine army, and come out.

9:30 邑宰西布勒听见以别的儿子迦勒的话,就发怒,

And when Zebul the ruler of the city heard the words of Gaal the son of Ebed, his anger was kindled.

9:31 悄悄地打发人去见亚比米勒,说,以别的儿子迦勒和他的弟兄到了示剑,煽惑城中的民攻击你。

And he sent messengers unto Abimelech privily, saying, Behold, Gaal the son of Ebed and his brethren be come to Shechem; and, behold, they fortify the city against thee.

9:32 现在你和跟随你的人今夜起来,在田间埋伏。

Now therefore up by night, thou and the people that is with thee, and lie in wait in the field:

9:33 到早晨太阳一出,你就起来闯城。迦勒和跟随他的人出来攻击你的时候,你便向他们见机而作。

And it shall be, that in the morning, as soon as the sun is up, thou shalt rise early, and set upon the city: and, behold, when he and the people that is with him come out against thee, then mayest thou do to them as thou shalt find occasion.

9:34 于是,亚比米勒和跟随他的众人夜间起来,分作四队,埋伏等候示剑人。

And Abimelech rose up, and all the people that were with him, by night, and they laid wait against Shechem in four companies.

9:35 以别的儿子迦勒出去,站在城门口。亚比米勒和跟随他的人从埋伏之处起来。

And Gaal the son of Ebed went out, and stood in the entering of the gate of the city: and Abimelech rose up, and the people that were with him, from lying in wait.

9:36 迦勒看见那些人,就对西布勒说,看哪,有人从山顶上下来了。西布勒说,你看见山的影子,以为是人。

And when Gaal saw the people, he said to Zebul, Behold, there come people down from the top of the mountains. And Zebul said unto him, Thou seest the shadow of the mountains as if they were men.

9:37 迦勒又说,看哪,有人从高处下来,又有一队从米恶尼尼橡树的路上而来。

And Gaal spake again and said, See there come people down by the middle of the land, and another company come along by the plain of Meonenim.

9:38 西布勒对他说,你曾说,亚比米勒是谁,叫我们服事他。你所夸的口在哪里呢。这不是你所藐视的民吗。你现在出去,与他们交战吧。

Then said Zebul unto him, Where is now thy mouth, wherewith thou saidst, Who is Abimelech, that we should serve him? is not this the people that thou hast despised? go out, I pray now, and fight with them.

9:39 于是迦勒率领示剑人出去,与亚比米勒交战。

And Gaal went out before the men of Shechem, and fought with Abimelech.

9:40 亚比米勒追赶迦勒。迦勒在他面前逃跑,有许多受伤仆倒的,直到城门。

And Abimelech chased him, and he fled before him, and many were overthrown and wounded, even unto the entering of the gate.

9:41 亚比米勒住在亚鲁玛。西布勒赶出迦勒和他弟兄,不准他们住在示剑。

And Abimelech dwelt at Arumah: and Zebul thrust out Gaal and his brethren, that they should not dwell in Shechem.

9:42 次日,民出到田间,有人告诉亚比米勒。

And it came to pass on the morrow, that the people went out into the field; and they told Abimelech.

9:43 他就把他的人分作三队,埋伏在田间,看见示剑人从城里出来,就起来击杀他们。

And he took the people, and divided them into three companies, and laid wait in the field, and looked, and, behold, the people were come forth out of the city; and he rose up against them, and smote them.

9:44 亚比米勒和跟随他的一队向前闯去,站在城门口。那两队直闯到田间,击杀了众人。

And Abimelech, and the company that was with him, rushed forward, and stood in the entering of the gate of the city: and the two other companies ran upon all the people that were in the fields, and slew them.

9:45 亚比米勒整天攻打城,将城夺取,杀了其中的居民,将城拆毁,撒上了盐。

And Abimelech fought against the city all that day; and he took the city, and slew the people that was therein, and beat down the city, and sowed it with salt.

9:46 示剑楼的人听见了,就躲入巴力比利土庙的卫所。

And when all the men of the tower of Shechem heard that, they entered into an hold of the house of the god Berith.

9:47 有人告诉亚比米勒说,示剑楼的人都聚在一处。

And it was told Abimelech, that all the men of the tower of Shechem were gathered together.

9:48 亚比米勒和跟随他的人就都上撒们山。亚比米勒手拿斧子,砍下一根树枝,扛在肩上,对跟随他的人说,你们看我所行的,也当赶紧照样行。

And Abimelech gat him up to mount Zalmon, he and all the people that were with him; and Abimelech took an axe in his hand, and cut down a bough from the trees, and took it, and laid it on his shoulder, and said unto the people that were with him, What ye have seen me do, make haste, and do as I have done.

9:49 众人就各砍一枝,跟随亚比米勒,把树枝堆在卫所的四围,放火烧了卫所,以致示剑楼的人都死了,男女约有一千。

And all the people likewise cut down every man his bough, and followed Abimelech, and put them to the hold, and set the hold on fire upon them; so that all the men of the tower of Shechem died also, about a thousand men and women.

9:50 亚比米勒到提备斯,向提备斯安营,就攻取了那城。

Then went Abimelech to Thebez, and encamped against Thebez, and took it.

9:51 城中有一座坚固的楼。城里的众人,无论男女,都逃进楼去,关上门,上了楼顶。

But there was a strong tower within the city, and thither fled all the men and women, and all they of the city, and shut it to them, and gat them up to the top of the tower.

9:52 亚比米勒到了楼前攻打,挨近楼门,要用火焚烧。

And Abimelech came unto the tower, and fought against it, and went hard unto the door of the tower to burn it with fire.

9:53 有一个妇人把一块上磨石抛在亚比米勒的头上,打破了他的脑骨。

And a certain woman cast a piece of a millstone upon Abimelech's head, and all to brake his skull.

9:54 他就急忙喊叫拿他兵器的少年人,对他说,拔出你的刀来,杀了我吧。免得人议论我说,他为一个妇人所杀。于是少年人把他刺透,他就死了。

Then he called hastily unto the young man his armourbearer, and said unto him, Draw thy sword, and slay me, that men say not of me, A woman slew him. And his young man thrust him through, and he died.

9:55 以色列人见亚比米勒死了,便各回自己的地方去了。

And when the men of Israel saw that Abimelech was dead, they departed every man unto his place.

9:56 这样,神报应亚比米勒向他父亲所行的恶,就是杀了弟兄七十个人的恶。

Thus God rendered the wickedness of Abimelech, which he did unto his father, in slaying his seventy brethren:

9:57 示剑人的一切恶,神也都报应在他们头上。耶路巴力的儿子约坦的咒诅归到他们身上了。

And all the evil of the men of Shechem did God render upon their heads: and upon them came the curse of Jotham the son of Jerubbaal.



旧约 -- 士师记(Judges) -- 第 10 章 ( 本篇共有 21 章 )[]

10:1 亚比米勒以后,有以萨迦人朵多的孙子,普瓦的儿子陀拉兴起,拯救以色列人。他住在以法莲山地的沙密。

And after Abimelech there arose to defend Israel Tola the son of Puah, the son of Dodo, a man of Issachar; and he dwelt in Shamir in mount Ephraim.

10:2 陀拉作以色列的士师二十三年,就死了,葬在沙密。

And he judged Israel twenty and three years, and died, and was buried in Shamir.

10:3 在他以后有基列人睚珥兴起,作以色列的士师二十二年。

And after him arose Jair, a Gileadite, and judged Israel twenty and two years.

10:4 他有三十个儿子,骑着三十匹驴驹。他们有三十座城邑,叫作哈倭特睚珥,直到如今,都是在基列地。

And he had thirty sons that rode on thirty ass colts, and they had thirty cities, which are called Havothjair unto this day, which are in the land of Gilead.

10:5 睚珥死了,就葬在加们。

And Jair died, and was buried in Camon.

10:6 以色列人又行耶和华眼中看为恶的事,去事奉诸巴力和亚斯她录,并亚兰的神,西顿的神,摩押的神,亚扪人的神,非利士人的神,离弃耶和华,不事奉他

And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines, and forsook the LORD, and served not him.

10:7 耶和华的怒气向以色列人发作,就把他们交在非利士人和亚扪人的手中。

And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the children of Ammon.

10:8 从那年起,他们扰害欺压约旦河那边,住亚摩利人之基列地的以色列人,共有十八年。

And that year they vexed and oppressed the children of Israel: eighteen years, all the children of Israel that were on the other side Jordan in the land of the Amorites, which is in Gilead.

10:9 亚扪人又渡过约旦河去攻打犹大和便雅悯,并以法莲族。以色列人就甚觉窘迫。

Moreover the children of Ammon passed over Jordan to fight also against Judah, and against Benjamin, and against the house of Ephraim; so that Israel was sore distressed.

10:10 以色列人哀求耶和华说,我们得罪了你。因为离弃了我们神,去事奉诸巴力。

And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, saying, We have sinned against thee, both because we have forsaken our God, and also served Baalim.

10:11 耶和华对以色列人说,我岂没有救过你们脱离埃及人,亚摩利人,亚扪人,和非利士人吗。

And the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Did not I deliver you from the Egyptians, and from the Amorites, from the children of Ammon, and from the Philistines?

10:12 西顿人,亚玛力人,马云人也都欺压你们。你们哀求我,我也拯救你们脱离他们的手。

The Zidonians also, and the Amalekites, and the Maonites, did oppress you; and ye cried to me, and I delivered you out of their hand.

10:13 你们竟离弃我,事奉别神。所以我不再救你们了。

Yet ye have forsaken me, and served other gods: wherefore I will deliver you no more.

10:14 你们去哀求所选择的神。你们遭遇急难的时候,让他救你们吧。

Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.

10:15 以色列人对耶和华说,我们犯罪了,任凭你随意待我们吧。只求你今日拯救我们。

And the children of Israel said unto the LORD, We have sinned: do thou unto us whatsoever seemeth good unto thee; deliver us only, we pray thee, this day.

10:16 以色列人就除掉他们中间的外邦神,事奉耶和华。耶和华因以色列人受的苦难,就心中担忧。

And they put away the strange gods from among them, and served the LORD: and his soul was grieved for the misery of Israel.

10:17 当时亚扪人聚集,安营在基列。以色列人也聚集,安营在米斯巴。

Then the children of Ammon were gathered together, and encamped in Gilead. And the children of Israel assembled themselves together, and encamped in Mizpeh.

10:18 基列的民和众首领彼此商议说,谁能先去攻打亚扪人,谁必作基列一切居民的领袖。

And the people and princes of Gilead said one to another, What man is he that will begin to fight against the children of Ammon? he shall be head over all the inhabitants of Gilead.



旧约 -- 士师记(Judges) -- 第 11 章 ( 本篇共有 21 章 )[]

11:1 基列人耶弗他是个大能的勇士,是妓女的儿子。耶弗他是基列所生的。

Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty man of valour, and he was the son of an harlot: and Gilead begat Jephthah.

11:2 基列的妻也生了几个儿子,他妻所生的儿子长大了,就赶逐耶弗他,说,你不可在我们父家承受产业,因为你是妓女的儿子。

And Gilead's wife bare him sons; and his wife's sons grew up, and they thrust out Jephthah, and said unto him, Thou shalt not inherit in our father's house; for thou art the son of a strange woman.

11:3 耶弗他就逃避他的弟兄,去住在陀伯地,有些匪徒到他那里聚集,与他一同出入。

Then Jephthah fled from his brethren, and dwelt in the land of Tob: and there were gathered vain men to Jephthah, and went out with him.

11:4 过了些日子,亚扪人攻打以色列。

And it came to pass in process of time, that the children of Ammon made war against Israel.

11:5 亚扪人攻打以色列的时候,基列的长老到陀伯地去,要叫耶弗他回来。

And it was so, that when the children of Ammon made war against Israel, the elders of Gilead went to fetch Jephthah out of the land of Tob:

11:6 对耶弗他说,请你来作我们的元帅,我们好与亚扪人争战。

And they said unto Jephthah, Come, and be our captain, that we may fight with the children of Ammon.

11:7 耶弗他回答基列的长老说,从前你们不是恨我,赶逐我出离父家吗。现在你们遭遇急难为何到我这里来呢。

And Jephthah said unto the elders of Gilead, Did not ye hate me, and expel me out of my father's house? and why are ye come unto me now when ye are in distress?

11:8 基列的长老回答耶弗他说,现在我们到你这里来,是要你同我们去,与亚扪人争战。你可以作基列一切居民的领袖。

And the elders of Gilead said unto Jephthah, Therefore we turn again to thee now, that thou mayest go with us, and fight against the children of Ammon, and be our head over all the inhabitants of Gilead.

11:9 耶弗他对基列的长老说,你们叫我回去,与亚扪人争战,耶和华把他交给我,我可以作你们的领袖吗。

And Jephthah said unto the elders of Gilead, If ye bring me home again to fight against the children of Ammon, and the LORD deliver them before me, shall I be your head?

11:10 基列的长老回答耶弗他说,有耶和华在你我中间作见证,我们必定照你的话行。

And the elders of Gilead said unto Jephthah, The LORD be witness between us, if we do not so according to thy words.

11:11 于是耶弗他同基列的长老回去,百姓就立耶弗他作领袖,作元帅。耶弗他在米斯巴将自己的一切话陈明在耶和华面前。

Then Jephthah went with the elders of Gilead, and the people made him head and captain over them: and Jephthah uttered all his words before the LORD in Mizpeh.

11:12 耶弗他打发使者去见亚扪人的王,说,你与我有什么相干,竟来到我国中攻打我呢。

And Jephthah sent messengers unto the king of the children of Ammon, saying, What hast thou to do with me, that thou art come against me to fight in my land?

11:13 亚扪人的王回答耶弗他的使者说,因为以色列人从埃及上来的时候占据我的地,从亚嫩河到雅博河,直到约旦河。现在你要好好地将这地归还吧。

And the king of the children of Ammon answered unto the messengers of Jephthah, Because Israel took away my land, when they came up out of Egypt, from Arnon even unto Jabbok, and unto Jordan: now therefore restore those lands again peaceably.

11:14 耶弗他又打发使者去见亚扪人的王,

And Jephthah sent messengers again unto the king of the children of Ammon:

11:15 对他说,耶弗他如此说,以色列人并没有占据摩押地和亚扪人的地。

And said unto him, Thus saith Jephthah, Israel took not away the land of Moab, nor the land of the children of Ammon:

11:16 以色列人从埃及上来乃是经过旷野到红海,来到加低斯,

But when Israel came up from Egypt, and walked through the wilderness unto the Red sea, and came to Kadesh;

11:17 就打发使者去见以东王,说,求你容我从你的地经过。以东王却不应允。又照样打发使者去见摩押王,他也不允准。以色列人就住在加低斯。

Then Israel sent messengers unto the king of Edom, saying, Let me, I pray thee, pass through thy land: but the king of Edom would not hearken thereto. And in like manner they sent unto the king of Moab: but he would not consent: and Israel abode in Kadesh.

11:18 他们又经过旷野,绕着以东和摩押地,从摩押地的东边过来,在亚嫩河边安营,并没有入摩押的境内,因为亚嫩河是摩押的边界。

Then they went along through the wilderness, and compassed the land of Edom, and the land of Moab, and came by the east side of the land of Moab, and pitched on the other side of Arnon, but came not within the border of Moab: for Arnon was the border of Moab.

11:19 以色列人打发使者去见亚摩利王西宏,就是希实本的王,对他说,求你容我们从你的地经过,往我们自己的地方去。

And Israel sent messengers unto Sihon king of the Amorites, the king of Heshbon; and Israel said unto him, Let us pass, we pray thee, through thy land into my place.

11:20 西宏却不信服以色列人,不容他们经过他的境界,乃招聚他的众民在雅杂安营,与以色列人争战。

But Sihon trusted not Israel to pass through his coast: but Sihon gathered all his people together, and pitched in Jahaz, and fought against Israel.

11:21 耶和华以色列的神将西宏和他的众民都交在以色列人手中,以色列人就击杀他们,得了亚摩利人的全地,

And the LORD God of Israel delivered Sihon and all his people into the hand of Israel, and they smote them: so Israel possessed all the land of the Amorites, the inhabitants of that country.

11:22 从亚嫩河到雅博河,从旷野直到约旦河。

And they possessed all the coasts of the Amorites, from Arnon even unto Jabbok, and from the wilderness even unto Jordan.

11:23 耶和华以色列的神在他百姓以色列面前赶出亚摩利人,你竟要得他们的地吗。

So now the LORD God of Israel hath dispossessed the Amorites from before his people Israel, and shouldest thou possess it?

11:24 你的神基抹所赐你的地你不是得为业吗。耶和华我们的神在我们面前所赶出的人,我们就得他的地。

Wilt not thou possess that which Chemosh thy god giveth thee to possess? So whomsoever the LORD our God shall drive out from before us, them will we possess.

11:25 难道你比摩押王西拨的儿子巴勒还强吗。他曾与以色列人争竞,或是与他们争战吗。

And now art thou any thing better than Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab? did he ever strive against Israel, or did he ever fight against them,

11:26 以色列人住希实本和属希实本的乡村,亚罗珥和属亚罗珥的乡村,并沿亚嫩河的一切城邑,已经有三百年了。在这三百年之内,你们为什么没有取回这些地方呢。

While Israel dwelt in Heshbon and her towns, and in Aroer and her towns, and in all the cities that be along by the coasts of Arnon, three hundred years? why therefore did ye not recover them within that time?

11:27 原来我没有得罪你,你却攻打我,恶待我。愿审判人的耶和华今日在以色列人和亚扪人中间判断是非。

Wherefore I have not sinned against thee, but thou doest me wrong to war against me: the LORD the Judge be judge this day between the children of Israel and the children of Ammon.

11:28 但亚扪人的王不肯听耶弗他打发人说的话。

Howbeit the king of the children of Ammon hearkened not unto the words of Jephthah which he sent him.

11:29 耶和华的灵降在耶弗他身上,他就经过基列和玛拿西,来到基列的米斯巴,又从米斯巴来到亚扪人那里。

Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jephthah, and he passed over Gilead, and Manasseh, and passed over Mizpeh of Gilead, and from Mizpeh of Gilead he passed over unto the children of Ammon.

11:30 耶弗他就向耶和华许愿,说,你若将亚扪人交在我手中,

And Jephthah vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said, If thou shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands,

11:31 我从亚扪人那里平平安安回来的时候,无论什么人,先从我家门出来迎接我,就必归你,我也必将他献上为燔祭。

Then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD's, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering.

11:32 于是耶弗他往亚扪人那里去,与他们争战。耶和华将他们交在他手中,

So Jephthah passed over unto the children of Ammon to fight against them; and the LORD delivered them into his hands.

11:33 他就大大杀败他们,从亚罗珥到米匿,直到亚备勒基拉明,攻取了二十座城。这样亚扪人就被以色列人制伏了。

And he smote them from Aroer, even till thou come to Minnith, even twenty cities, and unto the plain of the vineyards, with a very great slaughter. Thus the children of Ammon were subdued before the children of Israel.

11:34 耶弗他回米斯巴到了自己的家,不料,他女儿拿着鼓跳舞出来迎接他,是他独生的,此外无儿无女。

And Jephthah came to Mizpeh unto his house, and, behold, his daughter came out to meet him with timbrels and with dances: and she was his only child; beside her he had neither son nor daughter.

11:35 耶弗他看见她,就撕裂衣服,说,哀哉。我的女儿阿,你使我甚是愁苦,叫我作难了。因为我已经向耶和华开口许愿,不能挽回。

And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter! thou hast brought me very low, and thou art one of them that trouble me: for I have opened my mouth unto the LORD, and I cannot go back.

11:36 他女儿回答说,父阿,你既向耶和华开口,就当照你口中所说的向我行,因耶和华已经在仇敌亚扪人身上为你报仇。

And she said unto him, My father, if thou hast opened thy mouth unto the LORD, do to me according to that which hath proceeded out of thy mouth; forasmuch as the LORD hath taken vengeance for thee of thine enemies, even of the children of Ammon.

11:37 又对父亲说,有一件事求你允准,容我去两个月,与同伴在山上,好哀哭我终为处女。

And she said unto her father, Let this thing be done for me: let me alone two months, that I may go up and down upon the mountains, and bewail my virginity, I and my fellows.

11:38 耶弗他说,你去吧。就容她去两个月。她便和同伴去了,在山上为她终为处女哀哭。

And he said, Go. And he sent her away for two months: and she went with her companions, and bewailed her virginity upon the mountains.

11:39 两月已满,她回到父亲那里,父亲就照所许的愿向她行了。女儿终身没有亲近男子。

And it came to pass at the end of two months, that she returned unto her father, who did with her according to his vow which he had vowed: and she knew no man. And it was a custom in Israel,

11:40 此后以色列中有个规矩,每年以色列的女子去为基列人耶弗他的女儿哀哭四天。

That the daughters of Israel went yearly to lament the daughter of Jephthah the Gileadite four days in a year.



旧约 -- 士师记(Judges) -- 第 12 章 ( 本篇共有 21 章 )[]

12:1 以法莲人聚集,到了北方,对耶弗他说,你去与亚扪人争战,为什么没有招我们同去呢。我们必用火烧你和你的房屋。

And the men of Ephraim gathered themselves together, and went northward, and said unto Jephthah, Wherefore passedst thou over to fight against the children of Ammon, and didst not call us to go with thee? we will burn thine house upon thee with fire.

12:2 耶弗他对他们说,我和我的民与亚扪人大大争战。我招你们来,你们竟没有来救我脱离他们的手。

And Jephthah said unto them, I and my people were at great strife with the children of Ammon; and when I called you, ye delivered me not out of their hands.

12:3 我见你们不来救我,我就拚命前去攻击亚扪人,耶和华将他们交在我手中。你们今日为什么上我这里来攻打我呢。

And when I saw that ye delivered me not, I put my life in my hands, and passed over against the children of Ammon, and the LORD delivered them into my hand: wherefore then are ye come up unto me this day, to fight against me?

12:4 于是耶弗他招聚基列人,与以法莲人争战。基列人击杀以法莲人,是因他们说,你们基列人在以法莲,玛拿西中间,不过是以法莲逃亡的人。

Then Jephthah gathered together all the men of Gilead, and fought with Ephraim: and the men of Gilead smote Ephraim, because they said, Ye Gileadites are fugitives of Ephraim among the Ephraimites, and among the Manassites.

12:5 基列人把守约旦河的渡口,不容以法莲人过去。以法莲逃走的人若说,容我过去。基列人就问他说,你是以法莲人不是。他若说,不是,

And the Gileadites took the passages of Jordan before the Ephraimites: and it was so, that when those Ephraimites which were escaped said, Let me go over; that the men of Gilead said unto him, Art thou an Ephraimite? If he said, Nay;

12:6 就对他说,你说示播列。。以法莲人因为咬不真字音,便说西播列。基列人就将他拿住,杀在约旦河的渡口。那时以法莲人被杀的有四万二千人。

Then said they unto him, Say now Shibboleth: and he said Sibboleth: for he could not frame to pronounce it right. Then they took him, and slew him at the passages of Jordan: and there fell at that time of the Ephraimites forty and two thousand.

12:7 耶弗他作以色列的士师六年。基列人耶弗他死了,葬在基列的一座城里。

And Jephthah judged Israel six years. Then died Jephthah the Gileadite, and was buried in one of the cities of Gilead.

12:8 耶弗他以后,有伯利恒人以比赞作以色列的士师。

And after him Ibzan of Bethlehem judged Israel.

12:9 他有三十个儿子,三十个女儿。女儿都嫁出去了。他给众子从外乡娶了三十个媳妇。他作以色列的士师七年。

And he had thirty sons, and thirty daughters, whom he sent abroad, and took in thirty daughters from abroad for his sons. And he judged Israel seven years.

12:10 以比赞死了,葬在伯利恒。

Then died Ibzan, and was buried at Bethlehem.

12:11 以比赞之后,有西布伦人以伦,作以色列的士师十年。

And after him Elon, a Zebulonite, judged Israel; and he judged Israel ten years.

12:12 西布伦人以伦死了,葬在西布伦地的亚雅仑。

And Elon the Zebulonite died, and was buried in Aijalon in the country of Zebulun.

12:13 以伦之后,有比拉顿人希列的儿子押顿作以色列的士师。

And after him Abdon the son of Hillel, a Pirathonite, judged Israel.

12:14 他有四十个儿子,三十个孙子,骑着七十匹驴驹。押顿作以色列的士师八年。

And he had forty sons and thirty nephews, that rode on threescore and ten ass colts: and he judged Israel eight years.

12:15 比拉顿人希列的儿子押顿死了,葬在以法莲地的比拉顿,在亚玛力人的山地。

And Abdon the son of Hillel the Pirathonite died, and was buried in Pirathon in the land of Ephraim, in the mount of the Amalekites.



旧约 -- 士师记(Judges) -- 第 13 章 ( 本篇共有 21 章 )[]

13:1 以色列人又行耶和华眼中看为恶的事,耶和华将他们交在非利士人手中四十年。

And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD; and the LORD delivered them into the hand of the Philistines forty years.

13:2 那时,有一个琐拉人,是属但族的,名叫玛挪亚。他的妻不怀孕,不生育。

And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not.

13:3 耶和华的使者向那妇人显现,对她说,向来你不怀孕,不生育,如今你必怀孕生一个儿子。

And the angel of the LORD appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son.

13:4 所以你当谨慎,清酒浓酒都不可喝,一切不洁之物也不可吃。

Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing:

13:5 你必怀孕生一个儿子,不可用剃头刀剃他的头,因为这孩子一出胎就归神作拿细耳人。他必起首拯救以色列人脱离非利士人的手。

For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head: for the child shall be a Nazarite unto God from the womb: and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.

13:6 妇人就回去对丈夫说,有一个神人到我面前来,他的相貌如神使者的相貌,甚是可畏。我没有问他从哪里来,他也没有将他的名告诉我,

Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, A man of God came unto me, and his countenance was like the countenance of an angel of God, very terrible: but I asked him not whence he was, neither told he me his name:

13:7 却对我说,你要怀孕生一个儿子,所以清酒浓酒都不可喝,一切不洁之物也不可吃。因为这孩子从出胎一直到死,必归神作拿细耳人。

But he said unto me, Behold, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and now drink no wine nor strong drink, neither eat any unclean thing: for the child shall be a Nazarite to God from the womb to the day of his death.

13:8 玛挪亚就祈求耶和华说,主阿,求你再差遣那神人到我们这里来,好指教我们怎样待这将要生的孩子。

Then Manoah intreated the LORD, and said, O my Lord, let the man of God which thou didst send come again unto us, and teach us what we shall do unto the child that shall be born.

13:9 神应允玛挪亚的话。妇人正坐在田间的时候,神的使者又到她那里,她丈夫玛挪亚却没有同她在一处。

And God hearkened to the voice of Manoah; and the angel of God came again unto the woman as she sat in the field: but Manoah her husband was not with her.

13:10 妇人急忙跑去告诉丈夫说,那日到我面前来的人,又向我显现。

And the woman made haste, and ran, and shewed her husband, and said unto him, Behold, the man hath appeared unto me, that came unto me the other day.

13:11 玛挪亚起来跟随他的妻来到那人面前,对他说,与这妇人说话的就是你吗。他说,是我。

And Manoah arose, and went after his wife, and came to the man, and said unto him, Art thou the man that spakest unto the woman? And he said, I am.

13:12 玛挪亚说,愿你的话应验。我们当怎样待这孩子,他后来当怎样呢。

And Manoah said, Now let thy words come to pass. How shall we order the child, and how shall we do unto him?

13:13 耶和华的使者对玛挪亚说,我告诉妇人的一切事,她都当谨慎。

And the angel of the LORD said unto Manoah, Of all that I said unto the woman let her beware.

13:14 葡萄树所结的都不可吃,清酒浓酒都不可喝,一切不洁之物也不可吃。凡我所吩咐的,她都当遵守。

She may not eat of any thing that cometh of the vine, neither let her drink wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing: all that I commanded her let her observe.

13:15 玛挪亚对耶和华的使者说,求你容我们款留你,好为你预备一只山羊羔。

And Manoah said unto the angel of the LORD, I pray thee, let us detain thee, until we shall have made ready a kid for thee.

13:16 耶和华的使者对玛挪亚说,你虽然款留我,我却不吃你的食物,你若预备燔祭就当献与耶和华。原来玛挪亚不知道他是耶和华的使者。

And the angel of the LORD said unto Manoah, Though thou detain me, I will not eat of thy bread: and if thou wilt offer a burnt offering, thou must offer it unto the LORD. For Manoah knew not that he was an angel of the LORD.

13:17 玛挪亚对耶和华的使者说,请将你的名告诉我,到你话应验的时候,我们好尊敬你。

And Manoah said unto the angel of the LORD, What is thy name, that when thy sayings come to pass we may do thee honour?

13:18 耶和华的使者对他说,你何必问我的名,我名是奇妙的。

And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Why askest thou thus after my name, seeing it is secret?

13:19 玛挪亚将一只山羊羔和素祭在磐石上献与耶和华,使者行奇妙的事。玛挪亚和他的妻观看,

So Manoah took a kid with a meat offering, and offered it upon a rock unto the LORD: and the angel did wonderously; and Manoah and his wife looked on.

13:20 见火焰从坛上往上升,耶和华的使者在坛上的火焰中也升上去了。玛挪亚和他的妻看见,就俯伏于地。

For it came to pass, when the flame went up toward heaven from off the altar, that the angel of the LORD ascended in the flame of the altar. And Manoah and his wife looked on it, and fell on their faces to the ground.

13:21 耶和华的使者不再向玛挪亚和他的妻显现,玛挪亚才知道他是耶和华的使者。

But the angel of the LORD did no more appear to Manoah and to his wife. Then Manoah knew that he was an angel of the LORD.

13:22 玛挪亚对他的妻说,我们必要死,因为看见了神。

And Manoah said unto his wife, We shall surely die, because we have seen God.

13:23 他的妻却对他说,耶和华若要杀我们,必不从我们手里收纳燔祭和素祭,并不将这一切事指示我们,今日也不将这些话告诉我们。

But his wife said unto him, If the LORD were pleased to kill us, he would not have received a burnt offering and a meat offering at our hands, neither would he have shewed us all these things, nor would as at this time have told us such things as these.

13:24 后来妇人生了一个儿子,给他起名叫参孙。孩子长大,耶和华赐福与他。

And the woman bare a son, and called his name Samson: and the child grew, and the LORD blessed him.

13:25 在玛哈尼但,就是琐拉和以实陶中间,耶和华的灵才感动他。

And the Spirit of the LORD began to move him at times in the camp of Dan between Zorah and Eshtaol.



旧约 -- 士师记(Judges) -- 第 14 章 ( 本篇共有 21 章 )[]

14:1 参孙下到亭拿,在那里看见一个女子,是非利士人的女儿。

And Samson went down to Timnath, and saw a woman in Timnath of the daughters of the Philistines.

14:2 参孙上来禀告他父母说,我在亭拿看见一个女子,是非利士人的女儿,愿你们给我娶来为妻。

And he came up, and told his father and his mother, and said, I have seen a woman in Timnath of the daughters of the Philistines: now therefore get her for me to wife.

14:3 他父母说,在你弟兄的女儿中,或在本国的民中,岂没有一个女子,何至你去在未受割礼的非利士人中娶妻呢。参孙对他父亲说,愿你给我娶那女子,因我喜悦她。

Then his father and his mother said unto him, Is there never a woman among the daughters of thy brethren, or among all my people, that thou goest to take a wife of the uncircumcised Philistines? And Samson said unto his father, Get her for me; for she pleaseth me well.

14:4 他的父母却不知道这事是出于耶和华,因为他找机会攻击非利士人。那时,非利士人辖制以色列人。

But his father and his mother knew not that it was of the LORD, that he sought an occasion against the Philistines: for at that time the Philistines had dominion over Israel.

14:5 参孙跟他父母下亭拿去,到了亭拿的葡萄园,见有一只少壮狮子向他吼叫。

Then went Samson down, and his father and his mother, to Timnath, and came to the vineyards of Timnath: and, behold, a young lion roared against him.

14:6 耶和华的灵大大感动参孙,他虽然手无器械,却将狮子撕裂,如同撕裂山羊羔一样。他行这事并没有告诉父母。

And the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand: but he told not his father or his mother what he had done.

14:7 参孙下去与女子说话,就喜悦她。

And he went down, and talked with the woman; and she pleased Samson well.

14:8 过了些日子,再下去要娶那女子,转向道旁要看死狮,见有一群蜂子和蜜在死狮之内,

And after a time he returned to take her, and he turned aside to see the carcase of the lion: and, behold, there was a swarm of bees and honey in the carcase of the lion.

14:9 就用手取蜜,且吃且走。到了父母那里,给他父母,他们也吃了。只是没有告诉这蜜是从死狮之内取来的。

And he took thereof in his hands, and went on eating, and came to his father and mother, and he gave them, and they did eat: but he told not them that he had taken the honey out of the carcase of the lion.

14:10 他父亲下去见女子。参孙在那里设摆筵宴,因为向来少年人都有这个规矩。

So his father went down unto the woman: and Samson made there a feast; for so used the young men to do.

14:11 众人看见参孙,就请了三十个人陪伴他。

And it came to pass, when they saw him, that they brought thirty companions to be with him.

14:12 参孙对他们说,我给你们出一个谜语,你们在七日筵宴之内,若能猜出意思告诉我,我就给你们三十件里衣,三十套衣裳。

And Samson said unto them, I will now put forth a riddle unto you: if ye can certainly declare it me within the seven days of the feast, and find it out, then I will give you thirty sheets and thirty change of garments:

14:13 你们若不能猜出意思告诉我,你们就给我三十件里衣,三十套衣裳。他们说,请将谜语说给我们听。

But if ye cannot declare it me, then shall ye give me thirty sheets and thirty change of garments. And they said unto him, Put forth thy riddle, that we may hear it.

14:14 参孙对他们说,吃的从吃者出来。甜的从强者出来。他们三日不能猜出谜语的意思。

And he said unto them, Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness. And they could not in three days expound the riddle.

14:15 到第七天,他们对参孙的妻说,你诓哄你丈夫,探出谜语的意思告诉我们,免得我们用火烧你和你父家。你们请了我们来,是要夺我们所有的吗。

And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they said unto Samson's wife, Entice thy husband, that he may declare unto us the riddle, lest we burn thee and thy father's house with fire: have ye called us to take that we have? is it not so?

14:16 参孙的妻在丈夫面前啼哭说,你是恨我,不是爱我,你给我本国的人出谜语,却没有将意思告诉我。参孙回答说,连我父母我都没有告诉,岂可告诉你呢。

And Samson's wife wept before him, and said, Thou dost but hate me, and lovest me not: thou hast put forth a riddle unto the children of my people, and hast not told it me. And he said unto her, Behold, I have not told it my father nor my mother, and shall I tell it thee?

14:17 七日筵宴之内,她在丈夫面前啼哭,到第七天逼着他,他才将谜语的意思告诉他妻,他妻就告诉本国的人。

And she wept before him the seven days, while their feast lasted: and it came to pass on the seventh day, that he told her, because she lay sore upon him: and she told the riddle to the children of her people.

14:18 到第七天,日头未落以前,那城里的人对参孙说,有什么比蜜还甜呢。有什么比狮子还强呢。参孙对他们说,你们若非用我的母牛犊耕地,就猜不出我谜语的意思来。

And the men of the city said unto him on the seventh day before the sun went down, What is sweeter than honey? And what is stronger than a lion? And he said unto them, If ye had not plowed with my heifer, ye had not found out my riddle.

14:19 耶和华的灵大大感动参孙,他就下到亚实基伦,击杀了三十个人,夺了他们的衣裳,将衣裳给了猜出谜语的人。参孙发怒,就上父家去了。

And the Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he went down to Ashkelon, and slew thirty men of them, and took their spoil, and gave change of garments unto them which expounded the riddle. And his anger was kindled, and he went up to his father's house.

14:20 参孙的妻便归了参孙的陪伴,就是作过他朋友的。

But Samson's wife was given to his companion, whom he had used as his friend.



旧约 -- 士师记(Judges) -- 第 15 章 ( 本篇共有 21 章 )[]

15:1 过了些日子,到割麦子的时候,参孙带着一只山羊羔去看他的妻,说,我要进内室见我的妻。他岳父不容他进去,

But it came to pass within a while after, in the time of wheat harvest, that Samson visited his wife with a kid; and he said, I will go in to my wife into the chamber. But her father would not suffer him to go in.

15:2 说,我估定你是极其恨她,因此我将她给了你的陪伴。她的妹子不是比她还美丽吗。你可以娶来代替她吧。

And her father said, I verily thought that thou hadst utterly hated her; therefore I gave her to thy companion: is not her younger sister fairer than she? take her, I pray thee, instead of her.

15:3 参孙说,这回我加害于非利士人不算有罪。

And Samson said concerning them, Now shall I be more blameless than the Philistines, though I do them a displeasure.

15:4 于是参孙去捉了三百只狐狸(或作野狗),将狐狸尾巴一对一对地捆上,将火把捆在两条尾巴中间,

And Samson went and caught three hundred foxes, and took firebrands, and turned tail to tail, and put a firebrand in the midst between two tails.

15:5 点着火把,就放狐狸进入非利士人站着的禾稼,将堆集的禾捆和未割的禾稼,并橄榄园尽都烧了。

And when he had set the brands on fire, he let them go into the standing corn of the Philistines, and burnt up both the shocks, and also the standing corn, with the vineyards and olives.

15:6 非利士人说,这事是谁作的呢。有人说,是亭拿人的女婿参孙,因为他岳父将他的妻给了他的陪伴。于是非利士人上去,用火烧了妇人和她的父亲。

Then the Philistines said, Who hath done this? And they answered, Samson, the son in law of the Timnite, because he had taken his wife, and given her to his companion. And the Philistines came up, and burnt her and her father with fire.

15:7 参孙对非利士人说,你们既然这样行,我必向你们报仇才肯吧休。

And Samson said unto them, Though ye have done this, yet will I be avenged of you, and after that I will cease.

15:8 参孙就大大击杀他们,连腿带腰都砍断了。他便下去,住在以坦磐的穴内。

And he smote them hip and thigh with a great slaughter: and he went down and dwelt in the top of the rock Etam.

15:9 非利士人上去安营在犹大,布散在利希。

Then the Philistines went up, and pitched in Judah, and spread themselves in Lehi.

15:10 犹大人说,你们为何上来攻击我们呢。他们说,我们上来是要捆绑参孙。他向我们怎样行,我们也要向他怎样行。

And the men of Judah said, Why are ye come up against us? And they answered, To bind Samson are we come up, to do to him as he hath done to us.

15:11 于是有三千犹大人下到以坦磐的穴内,对参孙说,非利士人辖制我们,你不知道吗。你向我们行的是什么事呢。他回答说,他们向我怎样行,我也要向他们怎样行。

Then three thousand men of Judah went to the top of the rock Etam, and said to Samson, Knowest thou not that the Philistines are rulers over us? what is this that thou hast done unto us? And he said unto them, As they did unto me, so have I done unto them.

15:12 犹大人对他说,我们下来是要捆绑你,将你交在非利士人手中。参孙说,你们要向我起誓,应承你们自己不害死我。

And they said unto him, We are come down to bind thee, that we may deliver thee into the hand of the Philistines. And Samson said unto them, Swear unto me, that ye will not fall upon me yourselves.

15:13 他们说,我们断不杀你,只要将你捆绑交在非利士人手中。于是用两条新绳捆绑参孙,将他从以坦磐带上去。

And they spake unto him, saying, No; but we will bind thee fast, and deliver thee into their hand: but surely we will not kill thee. And they bound him with two new cords, and brought him up from the rock.

15:14 参孙到了利希,非利士人都迎着喧囔。耶和华的灵大大感动参孙,他臂上的绳就像火烧的麻一样,他的绑绳都从他手上脱落下来。

And when he came unto Lehi, the Philistines shouted against him: and the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and the cords that were upon his arms became as flax that was burnt with fire, and his bands loosed from off his hands.

15:15 他见一块未乾的驴腮骨,就伸手拾起来,用以击杀一千人。

And he found a new jawbone of an ass, and put forth his hand, and took it, and slew a thousand men therewith.

15:16 参孙说,我用驴腮骨杀人成堆,用驴腮骨杀了一千人。

And Samson said, With the jawbone of an ass, heaps upon heaps, with the jaw of an ass have I slain a thousand men.

15:17 说完这话,就把那腮骨从手里抛出去了。那地便叫拉末利希。

And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking, that he cast away the jawbone out of his hand, and called that place Ramathlehi.

15:18 参孙甚觉口渴,就求告耶和华说,你既藉仆人的手施行这吗大的拯救,岂可任我渴死,落在未受割礼的人手中呢。

And he was sore athirst, and called on the LORD, and said, Thou hast given this great deliverance into the hand of thy servant: and now shall I die for thirst, and fall into the hand of the uncircumcised?

15:19 神就使利希的洼处裂开,有水从其中涌出来。参孙喝了精神复原。因此那泉名叫隐哈歌利,那泉直到今日还在利希。

But God clave an hollow place that was in the jaw, and there came water thereout; and when he had drunk, his spirit came again, and he revived: wherefore he called the name thereof Enhakkore, which is in Lehi unto this day.

15:20 当非利士人辖制以色列人的时候,参孙作以色列的士师二十年。

And he judged Israel in the days of the Philistines twenty years.



旧约 -- 士师记(Judges) -- 第 16 章 ( 本篇共有 21 章 )[]

16:1 参孙到了迦萨,在那里看见一个妓女,就与她亲近。

Then went Samson to Gaza, and saw there an harlot, and went in unto her.

16:2 有人告诉迦萨人说,参孙到这里来了。他们就把他团团围住,终夜在城门悄悄埋伏,说,等到天亮我们便杀他。

And it was told the Gazites, saying, Samson is come hither. And they compassed him in, and laid wait for him all night in the gate of the city, and were quiet all the night, saying, In the morning, when it is day, we shall kill him.

16:3 参孙睡到半夜,起来,将城门的门扇,门框,门闩,一齐拆下来,扛在肩上,扛到希伯仑前的山顶上。

And Samson lay till midnight, and arose at midnight, and took the doors of the gate of the city, and the two posts, and went away with them, bar and all, and put them upon his shoulders, and carried them up to the top of an hill that is before Hebron.

16:4 后来参孙在梭烈谷喜爱一个妇人,名叫大利拉。

And it came to pass afterward, that he loved a woman in the valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah.

16:5 非利士人的首领上去见那妇人,对她说,求你诓哄参孙,探探他因何有这吗大的力气,我们用何法能胜他,捆绑克制他。我们就每人给你一千一百舍客勒银子。

And the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and said unto her, Entice him, and see wherein his great strength lieth, and by what means we may prevail against him, that we may bind him to afflict him: and we will give thee every one of us eleven hundred pieces of silver.

16:6 大利拉对参孙说,求你告诉我,你因何有这吗大的力气,当用何法捆绑克制你。

And Delilah said to Samson, Tell me, I pray thee, wherein thy great strength lieth, and wherewith thou mightest be bound to afflict thee.

16:7 参孙回答说,人若用七条未乾的青绳子捆绑我,我就软弱像别人一样。

And Samson said unto her, If they bind me with seven green withs that were never dried, then shall I be weak, and be as another man.

16:8 于是非利士人的首领拿了七条未乾的青绳子来,交给妇人,她就用绳子捆绑参孙。

Then the lords of the Philistines brought up to her seven green withs which had not been dried, and she bound him with them.

16:9 有人预先埋伏在妇人的内室里。妇人说,参孙哪。非利士人拿你来了。参孙就挣断绳子,如挣断经火的麻线一般。这样,他力气的根由人还是不知道。

Now there were men lying in wait, abiding with her in the chamber. And she said unto him, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he brake the withs, as a thread of tow is broken when it toucheth the fire. So his strength was not known.

16:10 大利拉对参孙说,你欺哄我,向我说谎言。现在求你告诉我当用何法捆绑你。

And Delilah said unto Samson, Behold, thou hast mocked me, and told me lies: now tell me, I pray thee, wherewith thou mightest be bound.

16:11 参孙回答说,人若用没有使过的新绳捆绑我,我就软弱像别人一样。

And he said unto her, If they bind me fast with new ropes that never were occupied, then shall I be weak, and be as another man.

16:12 大利拉就用新绳捆绑他。对他说,参孙哪。非利士人拿你来了。有人预先埋伏在内室里。参孙将臂上的绳挣断了,如挣断一条线一样。

Delilah therefore took new ropes, and bound him therewith, and said unto him, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And there were liers in wait abiding in the chamber. And he brake them from off his arms like a thread.

16:13 大利拉对参孙说,你到如今还是欺哄我,向我说谎言。求你告诉我,当用何法捆绑你。参孙回答说,你若将我头上的七条发绺,与纬线同织就可以了。

And Delilah said unto Samson, Hitherto thou hast mocked me, and told me lies: tell me wherewith thou mightest be bound. And he said unto her, If thou weavest the seven locks of my head with the web.

16:14 于是大利拉将他的发绺与纬线同织,用橛子钉住,对他说,参孙哪。非利士人拿你来了。参孙从睡中醒来,将机上的橛子和纬线一齐都拔出来了。

And she fastened it with the pin, and said unto him, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awaked out of his sleep, and went away with the pin of the beam, and with the web.

16:15 大利拉对参孙说,你既不与我同心,怎吗说你爱我呢。你这三次欺哄我,没有告诉我,你因何有这吗大的力气。

And she said unto him, How canst thou say, I love thee, when thine heart is not with me? thou hast mocked me these three times, and hast not told me wherein thy great strength lieth.

16:16 大利拉天天用话催逼他,甚至他心里烦闷要死。

And it came to pass, when she pressed him daily with her words, and urged him, so that his soul was vexed unto death;

16:17 参孙就把心中所藏的都告诉了她,对她说,向来人没有用剃头刀剃我的头,因为我自出母胎就归神作拿细耳人。若剃了我的头发,我的力气就离开我,我便软弱像别人一样。

That he told her all his heart, and said unto her, There hath not come a razor upon mine head; for I have been a Nazarite unto God from my mother's womb: if I be shaven, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man.

16:18 大利拉见他把心中所藏的都告诉了她,就打发人到非利士人的首领那里,对他们说,他已经把心中所藏的都告诉了我,请你们再上来一次。于是非利士人的首领手里拿着银子,上到妇人那里。

And when Delilah saw that he had told her all his heart, she sent and called for the lords of the Philistines, saying, Come up this once, for he hath shewed me all his heart. Then the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and brought money in their hand.

16:19 大利拉使参孙枕着她的膝睡觉,叫了一个人来剃除他头上的七条发绺。于是大利拉克制他,他的力气就离开他了。

And she made him sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him.

16:20 大利拉说,参孙哪。非利士人拿你来了。参孙从睡中醒来,心里说,我要像前几次出去活动身体。他却不知道耶和华已经离开他了。

And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the LORD was departed from him.

16:21 非利士人将他拿住,剜了他的眼睛,带他下到迦萨,用铜链拘索他。他就在监里推磨。

But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza, and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house.

16:22 然而他的头发被剃之后,又渐渐长起来了。

Howbeit the hair of his head began to grow again after he was shaven.

16:23 非利士人的首领聚集,要给他们的神大衮献大祭,并且欢乐,因为他们说,我们的神将我们的仇敌参孙交在我们手中了。

Then the lords of the Philistines gathered them together for to offer a great sacrifice unto Dagon their god, and to rejoice: for they said, Our god hath delivered Samson our enemy into our hand.

16:24 众人看见参孙,就赞美他们的神说,我们的神将毁坏我们地,杀害我们许多人的仇敌交在我们手中了。

And when the people saw him, they praised their god: for they said, Our god hath delivered into our hands our enemy, and the destroyer of our country, which slew many of us.

16:25 他们正宴乐的时候,就说,叫参孙来,在我们面前戏耍戏耍。于是将参孙从监里提出来,他就在众人面前戏耍。他们使他站在两柱中间。

And it came to pass, when their hearts were merry, that they said, Call for Samson, that he may make us sport. And they called for Samson out of the prison house; and he made them sport: and they set him between the pillars.

16:26 参孙向拉他手的童子说,求你让我摸着托房的柱子,我要靠一靠。

And Samson said unto the lad that held him by the hand, Suffer me that I may feel the pillars whereupon the house standeth, that I may lean upon them.

16:27 那时房内充满男女,非利士人的众首领也都在那里。房的平顶上约有三千男女,观看参孙戏耍。

Now the house was full of men and women; and all the lords of the Philistines were there; and there were upon the roof about three thousand men and women, that beheld while Samson made sport.

16:28 参孙求告耶和华说,主耶和华阿,求你眷念我。神阿,求你赐我这一次的力量,使我在非利士人身上报那剜我双眼的仇。

And Samson called unto the LORD, and said, O Lord God, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.

16:29 参孙就抱住托房的那两根柱子,左手抱一根,右手抱一根,

And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house stood, and on which it was borne up, of the one with his right hand, and of the other with his left.

16:30 说,我情愿与非利士人同死。就尽力屈身,房子倒塌,压住首领和房内的众人。这样,参孙死时所杀的人,比活着所杀的还多。

And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life.

16:31 参孙的弟兄和他父的全家,都下去取他的尸首,抬上来葬在琐拉和以实陶中间,在他父玛挪亚的坟墓里。参孙作以色列的士师二十年。

Then his brethren and all the house of his father came down, and took him, and brought him up, and buried him between Zorah and Eshtaol in the buryingplace of Manoah his father. And he judged Israel twenty years.



旧约 -- 士师记(Judges) -- 第 17 章 ( 本篇共有 21 章 )[]

17:1 以法莲山地有一个人名叫米迦。

And there was a man of mount Ephraim, whose name was Micah.

17:2 他对母亲说,你那一千一百舍客勒银子被人拿去,你因此咒诅,并且告诉了我。看哪。这银子在我这里,是我拿去了。他母亲说,我儿阿,愿耶和华赐福与你。

And he said unto his mother, The eleven hundred shekels of silver that were taken from thee, about which thou cursedst, and spakest of also in mine ears, behold, the silver is with me; I took it. And his mother said, Blessed be thou of the LORD, my son.

17:3 米迦就把这一千一百舍客勒银子还他母亲。他母亲说,我分出这银子来为你献给耶和华,好雕刻一个像,铸成一个像。现在我还是交给你。

And when he had restored the eleven hundred shekels of silver to his mother, his mother said, I had wholly dedicated the silver unto the LORD from my hand for my son, to make a graven image and a molten image: now therefore I will restore it unto thee.

17:4 米迦将银子还他母亲,他母亲将二百舍客勒银子交给银匠,雕刻一个像,铸成一个像,安置在米迦的屋内。

Yet he restored the money unto his mother; and his mother took two hundred shekels of silver, and gave them to the founder, who made thereof a graven image and a molten image: and they were in the house of Micah.

17:5 这米迦有了神堂,又制造以弗得和家中的神像,分派他一个儿子作祭司。

And the man Micah had an house of gods, and made an ephod, and teraphim, and consecrated one of his sons, who became his priest.

17:6 那时以色列中没有王,各人任意而行。

In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

17:7 犹大的伯利恒有一个少年人,是犹大族的利未人,他在那里寄居。

And there was a young man out of Bethlehemjudah of the family of Judah, who was a Levite, and he sojourned there.

17:8 这人离开犹大的伯利恒城,要找一个可住的地方。行路的时候,到了以法莲山地,走到米迦的家。

And the man departed out of the city from Bethlehemjudah to sojourn where he could find a place: and he came to mount Ephraim to the house of Micah, as he journeyed.

17:9 米迦问他说,你从哪里来。他回答说,从犹大的伯利恒来。我是利未人,要找一个可住的地方。

And Micah said unto him, Whence comest thou? And he said unto him, I am a Levite of Bethlehemjudah, and I go to sojourn where I may find a place.

17:10 米迦说,你可以住在我这里,我以你为父,为祭司。我每年给你十舍客勒银子,一套衣服和度日的食物。利未人就进了他的家。

And Micah said unto him, Dwell with me, and be unto me a father and a priest, and I will give thee ten shekels of silver by the year, and a suit of apparel, and thy victuals. So the Levite went in.

17:11 利未人情愿与那人同住。那人看这少年人如自己的儿子一样。

And the Levite was content to dwell with the man; and the young man was unto him as one of his sons.

17:12 米迦分派这少年的利未人作祭司,他就住在米迦的家里。

And Micah consecrated the Levite; and the young man became his priest, and was in the house of Micah.

17:13 米迦说,现在我知道耶和华必赐福与我,因我有一个利未人作祭司。

Then said Micah, Now know I that the LORD will do me good, seeing I have a Levite to my priest.



旧约 -- 士师记(Judges) -- 第 18 章 ( 本篇共有 21 章 )[]

18:1 那时,以色列中没有王。但支派的人仍是寻地居住。因为到那日子,他们还没有在以色列支派中得地为业。

In those days there was no king in Israel: and in those days the tribe of the Danites sought them an inheritance to dwell in; for unto that day all their inheritance had not fallen unto them among the tribes of Israel.

18:2 但人从琐拉和以实陶打发本族中的五个勇士,去仔细窥探那地,吩咐他们说,你们去窥探那地。他们来到以法莲山地,进了米迦的住宅,就在那里住宿。

And the children of Dan sent of their family five men from their coasts, men of valour, from Zorah, and from Eshtaol, to spy out the land, and to search it; and they said unto them, Go, search the land: who when they came to mount Ephraim, to the house of Micah, they lodged there.

18:3 他们临近米迦的住宅,听出那少年利未人的口音来,就进去问他说,谁领你到这里来。你在这里作什么。你在这里得什么。

When they were by the house of Micah, they knew the voice of the young man the Levite: and they turned in thither, and said unto him, Who brought thee hither? and what makest thou in this place? and what hast thou here?

18:4 他回答说,米迦待我如此如此,请我作祭司。

And he said unto them, Thus and thus dealeth Micah with me, and hath hired me, and I am his priest.

18:5 他们对他说,请你求问神,使我们知道所行的道路通达不通达。

And they said unto him, Ask counsel, we pray thee, of God, that we may know whether our way which we go shall be prosperous.

18:6 祭司对他们说,你们可以平平安安地去,你们所行的道路是在耶和华面前的。

And the priest said unto them, Go in peace: before the LORD is your way wherein ye go.

18:7 五人就走了,来到拉亿,见那里的民安居无虑,如同西顿人安居一样。在那地没有人掌权扰乱他们。他们离西顿人也远,与别人没有来往。

Then the five men departed, and came to Laish, and saw the people that were therein, how they dwelt careless, after the manner of the Zidonians, quiet and secure; and there was no magistrate in the land, that might put them to shame in any thing; and they were far from the Zidonians, and had no business with any man.

18:8 五人回到琐拉和以实陶,见他们的弟兄。弟兄问他们说,你们有什么话。

And they came unto their brethren to Zorah and Eshtaol: and their brethren said unto them, What say ye?

18:9 他们回答说,起来,我们上去攻击他们吧。我们已经窥探那地,见那地甚好。你们为何静坐不动呢。要急速前往得那地为业,不可迟延。

And they said, Arise, that we may go up against them: for we have seen the land, and, behold, it is very good: and are ye still? be not slothful to go, and to enter to possess the land.

18:10 你们到了那里,必看见安居无虑的民,地也宽阔。神已将那地交在你们手中。那地百物俱全,一无所缺。

When ye go, ye shall come unto a people secure, and to a large land: for God hath given it into your hands; a place where there is no want of any thing that is in the earth.

18:11 于是但族中的六百人,各带兵器,从琐拉和以实陶前往,

And there went from thence of the family of the Danites, out of Zorah and out of Eshtaol, six hundred men appointed with weapons of war.

18:12 上到犹大的基列耶琳,在基列耶琳后边安营。因此那地方名叫玛哈尼但,直到今日。

And they went up, and pitched in Kirjathjearim, in Judah: wherefore they called that place Mahanehdan unto this day: behold, it is behind Kirjathjearim.

18:13 他们从那里往以法莲山地去,来到米迦的住宅。

And they passed thence unto mount Ephraim, and came unto the house of Micah.

18:14 从前窥探拉亿地的五个人对他们的弟兄说,这宅子里有以弗得和家中的神像,并雕刻的像与铸成的像,你们知道吗。现在你们要想一想当怎样行。

Then answered the five men that went to spy out the country of Laish, and said unto their brethren, Do ye know that there is in these houses an ephod, and teraphim, and a graven image, and a molten image? now therefore consider what ye have to do.

18:15 五人就进入米迦的住宅,到了那少年利未人的房内问他好。

And they turned thitherward, and came to the house of the young man the Levite, even unto the house of Micah, and saluted him.

18:16 那六百但人各带兵器,站在门口。

And the six hundred men appointed with their weapons of war, which were of the children of Dan, stood by the entering of the gate.

18:17 窥探地的五个人走进去,将雕刻的像,以弗得,家中的神像,并铸成的像,都拿了去。祭司和带兵器的六百人,一同站在门口。

And the five men that went to spy out the land went up, and came in thither, and took the graven image, and the ephod, and the teraphim, and the molten image: and the priest stood in the entering of the gate with the six hundred men that were appointed with weapons of war.

18:18 那五个人进入米迦的住宅,拿出雕刻的像,以弗得,家中的神像,并铸成的像,祭司就问他们说,你们作什么呢。

And these went into Micah's house, and fetched the carved image, the ephod, and the teraphim, and the molten image. Then said the priest unto them, What do ye?

18:19 他们回答说,不要作声,用手捂口,跟我们去吧。我们必以你为父,为祭司。你作一家的祭司好呢。还是作以色列一族一支派的祭司好呢。

And they said unto him, Hold thy peace, lay thine hand upon thy mouth, and go with us, and be to us a father and a priest: is it better for thee to be a priest unto the house of one man, or that thou be a priest unto a tribe and a family in Israel?

18:20 祭司心里喜悦,便拿着以弗得和家中的神像,并雕刻的像,进入他们中间。

And the priest's heart was glad, and he took the ephod, and the teraphim, and the graven image, and went in the midst of the people.

18:21 他们就转身离开那里,妻子,儿女,牲畜,财物都在前头。

So they turned and departed, and put the little ones and the cattle and the carriage before them.

18:22 离米迦的住宅已远,米迦的近邻都聚集来,追赶但人,

And when they were a good way from the house of Micah, the men that were in the houses near to Micah's house were gathered together, and overtook the children of Dan.

18:23 呼叫但人。但人回头问米迦说,你聚集这许多人来作什么呢。

And they cried unto the children of Dan. And they turned their faces, and said unto Micah, What aileth thee, that thou comest with such a company?

18:24 米迦说,你们将我所作的神像和祭司都带了去,我还有所剩的吗。怎吗还问我说作什么呢。

And he said, Ye have taken away my gods which I made, and the priest, and ye are gone away: and what have I more? and what is this that ye say unto me, What aileth thee?

18:25 但人对米迦说,你不要使我们听见你的声音,恐怕有性暴的人攻击你,以致你和你的全家尽都丧命。

And the children of Dan said unto him, Let not thy voice be heard among us, lest angry fellows run upon thee, and thou lose thy life, with the lives of thy household.

18:26 但人还是走他们的路。米迦见他们的势力比自己强盛,就转身回家去了。

And the children of Dan went their way: and when Micah saw that they were too strong for him, he turned and went back unto his house.

18:27 但人将米迦所作的神像和他的祭司都带到拉亿,见安居无虑的民,就用刀杀了那民,又放火烧了那城,

And they took the things which Micah had made, and the priest which he had, and came unto Laish, unto a people that were at quiet and secure: and they smote them with the edge of the sword, and burnt the city with fire.

18:28 并无人搭救。因为离西顿远,他们又与别人没有来往。城在平原,那平原靠近伯利合。但人又在那里修城居住,

And there was no deliverer, because it was far from Zidon, and they had no business with any man; and it was in the valley that lieth by Bethrehob. And they built a city, and dwelt therein.

18:29 照着他们始祖以色列之子但的名字,给那城起名叫但。原先那城名叫拉亿。

And they called the name of the city Dan, after the name of Dan their father, who was born unto Israel: howbeit the name of the city was Laish at the first.

18:30 但人就为自己设立那雕刻的像。摩西的孙子,革舜的儿子约拿单,和他的子孙作但支派的祭司,直到那地遭掳掠的日子。

And the children of Dan set up the graven image: and Jonathan, the son of Gershom, the son of Manasseh, he and his sons were priests to the tribe of Dan until the day of the captivity of the land.

18:31 神的殿在示罗多少日子,但人为自己设立米迦所雕刻的像也在但多少日子。

And they set them up Micah's graven image, which he made, all the time that the house of God was in Shiloh.



旧约 -- 士师记(Judges) -- 第 19 章 ( 本篇共有 21 章 )[]

19:1 当以色列中没有王的时候,有住以法莲山地那边的一个利未人,娶了一个犹大伯利恒的女子为妾。

And it came to pass in those days, when there was no king in Israel, that there was a certain Levite sojourning on the side of mount Ephraim, who took to him a concubine out of Bethlehemjudah.

19:2 妾行淫离开丈夫,回犹大的伯利恒,到了父家,在那里住了四个月。

And his concubine played the whore against him, and went away from him unto her father's house to Bethlehemjudah, and was there four whole months.

19:3 她丈夫起来,带着一个仆人,两匹驴去见她,用好话劝她回来。女子就引丈夫进入父家。她父见了那人,便欢欢喜喜地迎接。

And her husband arose, and went after her, to speak friendly unto her, and to bring her again, having his servant with him, and a couple of asses: and she brought him into her father's house: and when the father of the damsel saw him, he rejoiced to meet him.

19:4 那人的岳父,就是女子的父亲,将那人留下住了三天。于是二人一同吃喝,住宿。

And his father in law, the damsel's father, retained him; and he abode with him three days: so they did eat and drink, and lodged there.

19:5 到第四天,利未人清早起来要走,女子的父亲对女婿说,请你吃点饭,加添心力,然后可以行路。

And it came to pass on the fourth day, when they arose early in the morning, that he rose up to depart: and the damsel's father said unto his son in law, Comfort thine heart with a morsel of bread, and afterward go your way.

19:6 于是二人坐下一同吃喝。女子的父亲对那人说,请你再住一夜,畅快你的心。

And they sat down, and did eat and drink both of them together: for the damsel's father had said unto the man, Be content, I pray thee, and tarry all night, and let thine heart be merry.

19:7 那人起来要走,他岳父强留他,他又住了一宿。

And when the man rose up to depart, his father in law urged him: therefore he lodged there again.

19:8 到第五天,他清早起来要走,女子的父亲说,请你吃点饭,加添心力,等到日头偏西再走。于是二人一同吃饭。

And he arose early in the morning on the fifth day to depart: and the damsel's father said, Comfort thine heart, I pray thee. And they tarried until afternoon, and they did eat both of them.

19:9 那人同他的妾和仆人起来要走,他岳父,就是女子的父亲,对他说,看哪,日头偏西了,请你再住一夜。天快晚了,可以在这里住宿,畅快你的心。明天早早起行回家去。

And when the man rose up to depart, he, and his concubine, and his servant, his father in law, the damsel's father, said unto him, Behold, now the day draweth toward evening, I pray you tarry all night: behold, the day groweth to an end, lodge here, that thine heart may be merry; and to morrow get you early on your way, that thou mayest go home.

19:10 那人不愿再住一夜,就备上那两匹驴,带着妾起身走了,来到耶布斯的对面,耶布斯就是耶路撒冷。

But the man would not tarry that night, but he rose up and departed, and came over against Jebus, which is Jerusalem; and there were with him two asses saddled, his concubine also was with him.

19:11 临近耶布斯的时候,日头快要落了,仆人对主人说,我们不如进这耶布斯人的城里住宿。

And when they were by Jebus, the day was far spent; and the servant said unto his master, Come, I pray thee, and let us turn in into this city of the Jebusites, and lodge in it.

19:12 主人回答说,我们不可进不是以色列人住的外邦城,不如过到基比亚去。

And his master said unto him, We will not turn aside hither into the city of a stranger, that is not of the children of Israel; we will pass over to Gibeah.

19:13 又对仆人说,我们可以到一个地方,或住在基比亚,或住在拉玛。

And he said unto his servant, Come, and let us draw near to one of these places to lodge all night, in Gibeah, or in Ramah.

19:14 他们就往前走。将到便雅悯的基比亚,日头已经落了。

And they passed on and went their way; and the sun went down upon them when they were by Gibeah, which belongeth to Benjamin.

19:15 他们进入基比亚要在那里住宿,就坐在城里的街上,因为无人接他们进家住宿。

And they turned aside thither, to go in and to lodge in Gibeah: and when he went in, he sat him down in a street of the city: for there was no man that took them into his house to lodging.

19:16 晚上,有一个老年人从田间作工回来。他原是以法莲山地的人,住在基比亚。那地方的人却是便雅悯人。

And, behold, there came an old man from his work out of the field at even, which was also of mount Ephraim; and he sojourned in Gibeah: but the men of the place were Benjamites.

19:17 老年人举目看见客人坐在城里的街上,就问他说,你从哪里来。要往哪里去。

And when he had lifted up his eyes, he saw a wayfaring man in the street of the city: and the old man said, Whither goest thou? and whence comest thou?

19:18 他回答说,我们从犹大的伯利恒来,要往以法莲山地那边去。我原是那里的人,到过犹大的伯利恒,现在我往耶和华的殿去,在这里无人接我进他的家。

And he said unto him, We are passing from Bethlehemjudah toward the side of mount Ephraim; from thence am I: and I went to Bethlehemjudah, but I am now going to the house of the LORD; and there is no man that receiveth me to house.

19:19 其实我有粮草可以喂驴,我与我的妾,并我的仆人,有饼有酒,并不缺少什么。

Yet there is both straw and provender for our asses; and there is bread and wine also for me, and for thy handmaid, and for the young man which is with thy servants: there is no want of any thing.

19:20 老年人说,愿你平安。你所需用的我都给你,只是不可在街上过夜。

And the old man said, Peace be with thee; howsoever let all thy wants lie upon me; only lodge not in the street.

19:21 于是领他们到家里,喂上驴,他们就洗脚吃喝。

So he brought him into his house, and gave provender unto the asses: and they washed their feet, and did eat and drink.

19:22 他们心里正欢畅的时候,城中的匪徒围住房子,连连叩门,对房主老人说,你把那进你家的人带出来,我们要与他交合。

Now as they were making their hearts merry, behold, the men of the city, certain sons of Belial, beset the house round about, and beat at the door, and spake to the master of the house, the old man, saying, Bring forth the man that came into thine house, that we may know him.

19:23 那房主出来对他们说,弟兄们哪,不要这样作恶。这人既然进了我的家,你们就不要行这丑事。

And the man, the master of the house, went out unto them, and said unto them, Nay, my brethren, nay, I pray you, do not so wickedly; seeing that this man is come into mine house, do not this folly.

19:24 我有个女儿,还是处女,并有这人的妾,我将她们领出来任凭你们玷辱她们,只是向这人不可行这样的丑事。

Behold, here is my daughter a maiden, and his concubine; them I will bring out now, and humble ye them, and do with them what seemeth good unto you: but unto this man do not so vile a thing.

19:25 那些人却不听从他的话。那人就把他的妾拉出去交给他们,他们便与她交合,终夜凌辱她,直到天色快亮才放她去。

But the men would not hearken to him: so the man took his concubine, and brought her forth unto them; and they knew her, and abused her all the night until the morning: and when the day began to spring, they let her go.

19:26 天快亮的时候,妇人回到她主人住宿的房门前,就仆倒在地,直到天亮。

Then came the woman in the dawning of the day, and fell down at the door of the man's house where her lord was, till it was light.

19:27 早晨,她的主人起来开了房门,出去要行路,不料那妇人仆倒在房门前,两手搭在门槛上。

And her lord rose up in the morning, and opened the doors of the house, and went out to go his way: and, behold, the woman his concubine was fallen down at the door of the house, and her hands were upon the threshold.

19:28 就对妇人说,起来,我们走吧。妇人却不回答。那人便将她驮在驴上,起身回本处去了。

And he said unto her, Up, and let us be going. But none answered. Then the man took her up upon an ass, and the man rose up, and gat him unto his place.

19:29 到了家里,用刀将妾的尸身切成十二块,使人拿着传送以色列的四境。

And when he was come into his house, he took a knife, and laid hold on his concubine, and divided her, together with her bones, into twelve pieces, and sent her into all the coasts of Israel.

19:30 凡看见的人都说,从以色列人出埃及地,直到今日,这样的事没有行过,也没有见过。现在应当思想,大家商议当怎样办理。

And it was so, that all that saw it said, There was no such deed done nor seen from the day that the children of Israel came up out of the land of Egypt unto this day: consider of it, take advice, and speak your minds.



旧约 -- 士师记(Judges) -- 第 20 章 ( 本篇共有 21 章 )[]

20:1 于是以色列从但到别是巴,以及住基列地的众人都出来,如同一人,聚集在米斯巴耶和华面前。

Then all the children of Israel went out, and the congregation was gathered together as one man, from Dan even to Beersheba, with the land of Gilead, unto the LORD in Mizpeh.

20:2 以色列民的首领,就是各支派的军长,都站在神百姓的会中。拿刀的步兵共有四十万。

And the chief of all the people, even of all the tribes of Israel, presented themselves in the assembly of the people of God, four hundred thousand footmen that drew sword.

20:3 以色列人上到米斯巴,便雅悯人都听见了。以色列人说,请你将这件恶事的情由对我们说明。

(Now the children of Benjamin heard that the children of Israel were gone up to Mizpeh.) Then said the children of Israel, Tell us, how was this wickedness?

20:4 那利未人,就是被害之妇人的丈夫,回答说,我和我的妾到了便雅悯的基比亚住宿。

And the Levite, the husband of the woman that was slain, answered and said, I came into Gibeah that belongeth to Benjamin, I and my concubine, to lodge.

20:5 基比亚人夜间起来,围了我住的房子,想要杀我,又将我的妾强奸致死。

And the men of Gibeah rose against me, and beset the house round about upon me by night, and thought to have slain me: and my concubine have they forced, that she is dead.

20:6 我就把我妾的尸身切成块子,使人拿着传送以色列得为业的全地,因为基比亚人在以色列中行了凶淫丑恶的事。

And I took my concubine, and cut her in pieces, and sent her throughout all the country of the inheritance of Israel: for they have committed lewdness and folly in Israel.

20:7 你们以色列人都当筹划商议。

Behold, ye are all children of Israel; give here your advice and counsel.

20:8 众民都起来如同一人,说,我们连一人都不回自己帐棚,自己房屋去。

And all the people arose as one man, saying, We will not any of us go to his tent, neither will we any of us turn into his house.

20:9 我们向基比亚人必这样行,照所掣的签去攻击他们。

But now this shall be the thing which we will do to Gibeah; we will go up by lot against it;

20:10 我们要在以色列各支派中,一百人挑取十人,一千人挑取百人,一万人挑取千人,为民运粮,等大众到了便雅悯的基比亚,就照基比亚人在以色列中所行的丑事征伐他们。

And we will take ten men of an hundred throughout all the tribes of Israel, and an hundred of a thousand, and a thousand out of ten thousand, to fetch victual for the people, that they may do, when they come to Gibeah of Benjamin, according to all the folly that they have wrought in Israel.

20:11 于是以色列众人彼此连合如同一人,聚集攻击那城。

So all the men of Israel were gathered against the city, knit together as one man.

20:12 以色列众支派打发人去,问便雅悯支派的各家说,你们中间怎吗作了这样的恶事呢。

And the tribes of Israel sent men through all the tribe of Benjamin, saying, What wickedness is this that is done among you?

20:13 现在你们要将基比亚的那些匪徒交出来,我们好治死他们,从以色列中除掉这恶。便雅悯人却不肯听从他们弟兄以色列人的话。

Now therefore deliver us the men, the children of Belial, which are in Gibeah, that we may put them to death, and put away evil from Israel. But the children of Benjamin would not hearken to the voice of their brethren the children of Israel:

20:14 便雅悯人从他们的各城里出来,聚集到了基比亚,要与以色列人打仗。

But the children of Benjamin gathered themselves together out of the cities unto Gibeah, to go out to battle against the children of Israel.

20:15 那时便雅悯人从各城里点出拿刀的,共有二万六千。另外还有基比亚人点出七百精兵。

And the children of Benjamin were numbered at that time out of the cities twenty and six thousand men that drew sword, beside the inhabitants of Gibeah, which were numbered seven hundred chosen men.

20:16 在众军之中有拣选的七百精兵,都是左手便利的,能用机弦甩石打人,毫发不差。

Among all this people there were seven hundred chosen men lefthanded; every one could sling stones at an hair breadth, and not miss.

20:17 便雅悯人之外,点出以色列人拿刀的,共有四十万,都是战士。

And the men of Israel, beside Benjamin, were numbered four hundred thousand men that drew sword: all these were men of war.

20:18 以色列人就起来,到伯特利去求问神说,我们中间谁当首先上去与便雅悯人争战呢。耶和华说,犹大当先上去。

And the children of Israel arose, and went up to the house of God, and asked counsel of God, and said, Which of us shall go up first to the battle against the children of Benjamin? And the LORD said, Judah shall go up first.

20:19 以色列人早晨起来,对着基比亚安营。

And the children of Israel rose up in the morning, and encamped against Gibeah.

20:20 以色列人出来,要与便雅悯人打仗,就在基比亚前摆阵。

And the men of Israel went out to battle against Benjamin; and the men of Israel put themselves in array to fight against them at Gibeah.

20:21 便雅悯人就从基比亚出来,当日杀死以色列人二万二千。

And the children of Benjamin came forth out of Gibeah, and destroyed down to the ground of the Israelites that day twenty and two thousand men.

20:22 以色列人彼此奋勇,仍在头一日摆阵的地方又摆阵。

And the people the men of Israel encouraged themselves, and set their battle again in array in the place where they put themselves in array the first day.

20:23 未摆阵之先,以色列人上去,在耶和华面前哭号,直到晚上,求问耶和华说,我们再去与我们弟兄便雅悯人打仗可以不可以。耶和华说,可以上去攻击他们。

(And the children of Israel went up and wept before the LORD until even, and asked counsel of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up again to battle against the children of Benjamin my brother? And the LORD said, Go up against him.)

20:24 第二日,以色列人就上前攻击便雅悯人。

And the children of Israel came near against the children of Benjamin the second day.

20:25 便雅悯人也在这日从基比亚出来,与以色列人接战,又杀死他们一万八千,都是拿刀的。

And Benjamin went forth against them out of Gibeah the second day, and destroyed down to the ground of the children of Israel again eighteen thousand men; all these drew the sword.

20:26 以色列众人就上到伯特利,坐在耶和华面前哭号,当日禁食直到晚上。又在耶和华面前献燔祭和平安祭。

Then all the children of Israel, and all the people, went up, and came unto the house of God, and wept, and sat there before the LORD, and fasted that day until even, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD.

20:27 *

And the children of Israel enquired of the LORD, (for the ark of the covenant of God was there in those days,

20:28 那时,神的约柜在那里。亚伦的孙子,以利亚撒的儿子非尼哈侍立在约柜前。以色列人问耶和华说,我们当再出去与我们弟兄便雅悯人打仗呢。还是吧兵呢。耶和华说,你们当上去,因为明日我必将他们交在你们手中。

And Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron, stood before it in those days,) saying, Shall I yet again go out to battle against the children of Benjamin my brother, or shall I cease? And the LORD said, Go up; for to morrow I will deliver them into thine hand.

20:29 以色列人在基比亚的四围设下伏兵。

And Israel set liers in wait round about Gibeah.

20:30 第三日,以色列人又上去攻击便雅悯人,在基比亚前摆阵,与前两次一样。

And the children of Israel went up against the children of Benjamin on the third day, and put themselves in array against Gibeah, as at other times.

20:31 便雅悯人也出来迎敌,就被引诱离城。在田间两条路上,一通伯特利,一通基比亚,像前两次,动手杀死以色列人约有三十个。

And the children of Benjamin went out against the people, and were drawn away from the city; and they began to smite of the people, and kill, as at other times, in the highways, of which one goeth up to the house of God, and the other to Gibeah in the field, about thirty men of Israel.

20:32 便雅悯人说,他们仍旧败在我们面前。但以色列人说,我们不如逃跑,引诱他们离开城到路上来。

And the children of Benjamin said, They are smitten down before us, as at the first. But the children of Israel said, Let us flee, and draw them from the city unto the highways.

20:33 以色列众人都起来,在巴力他玛摆阵,以色列的伏兵从马利迦巴埋伏的地方冲上前去。

And all the men of Israel rose up out of their place, and put themselves in array at Baaltamar: and the liers in wait of Israel came forth out of their places, even out of the meadows of Gibeah.

20:34 有以色列人中的一万精兵,来到基比亚前接战,势派甚是凶猛。便雅悯人却不知道灾祸临近了。

And there came against Gibeah ten thousand chosen men out of all Israel, and the battle was sore: but they knew not that evil was near them.

20:35 耶和华使以色列人杀败便雅悯人。那日,以色列人杀死便雅悯人二万五千一百,都是拿刀的。

And the LORD smote Benjamin before Israel: and the children of Israel destroyed of the Benjamites that day twenty and five thousand and an hundred men: all these drew the sword.

20:36 于是便雅悯人知道自己败了。先是以色列人。因为靠着在基比亚前所设的伏兵,就在便雅悯人面前嫂败。

So the children of Benjamin saw that they were smitten: for the men of Israel gave place to the Benjamites, because they trusted unto the liers in wait which they had set beside Gibeah.

20:37 伏兵急忙闯进基比亚,用刀杀死全城的人。

And the liers in wait hasted, and rushed upon Gibeah; and the liers in wait drew themselves along, and smote all the city with the edge of the sword.

20:38 以色列人预先同伏兵约定在城内放火,以烟气上腾为号。

Now there was an appointed sign between the men of Israel and the liers in wait, that they should make a great flame with smoke rise up out of the city.

20:39 以色列人临退阵的时候,便雅悯人动手杀死以色列人,约有三十个,就说,他们仍像前次被我们杀败了。

And when the men of Israel retired in the battle, Benjamin began to smite and kill of the men of Israel about thirty persons: for they said, Surely they are smitten down before us, as in the first battle.

20:40 当烟气如柱从城中上腾的时候,便雅悯人回头观看,见全城的烟气冲天。

But when the flame began to arise up out of the city with a pillar of smoke, the Benjamites looked behind them, and, behold, the flame of the city ascended up to heaven.

20:41 以色列人又转身回来,便雅悯人就甚惊惶,因为看见灾祸临到自己了。

And when the men of Israel turned again, the men of Benjamin were amazed: for they saw that evil was come upon them.

20:42 他们在以色列人面前转身往旷野逃跑。以色列人在后面追杀。那从各城里出来的,也都夹攻杀灭他们。

Therefore they turned their backs before the men of Israel unto the way of the wilderness; but the battle overtook them; and them which came out of the cities they destroyed in the midst of them.

20:43 以色列人围绕便雅悯人,追赶他们,在他们歇脚之处,对着日出之地的基比亚践踏他们。

Thus they inclosed the Benjamites round about, and chased them, and trode them down with ease over against Gibeah toward the sunrising.

20:44 便雅悯人死了的有一万八千,都是勇士。

And there fell of Benjamin eighteen thousand men; all these were men of valour.

20:45 其馀的人转身向旷野逃跑,往临门磐去。以色列人在道路上杀了他们五千人,如拾取遗穗一样,追到基顿又杀了他们二千人。

And they turned and fled toward the wilderness unto the rock of Rimmon: and they gleaned of them in the highways five thousand men; and pursued hard after them unto Gidom, and slew two thousand men of them.

20:46 那日便雅悯死了的共有二万五千人,都是拿刀的勇士。

So that all which fell that day of Benjamin were twenty and five thousand men that drew the sword; all these were men of valour.

20:47 只剩下六百人,转身向旷野逃跑,到了临门磐,就在那里住了四个月。

But six hundred men turned and fled to the wilderness unto the rock Rimmon, and abode in the rock Rimmon four months.

20:48 以色列人又转到便雅悯地,将各城的人和牲畜,并一切所遇见的,都用刀杀尽,又放火烧了一切城邑。

And the men of Israel turned again upon the children of Benjamin, and smote them with the edge of the sword, as well the men of every city, as the beast, and all that came to hand: also they set on fire all the cities that they came to.



旧约 -- 士师记(Judges) -- 第 21 章 ( 本篇共有 21 章 )[]

21:1 以色列人在米斯巴曾起誓说,我们都不将女儿给便雅悯人为妻。

Now the men of Israel had sworn in Mizpeh, saying, There shall not any of us give his daughter unto Benjamin to wife.

21:2 以色列人来到伯特利,坐在神面前直到晚上,放声痛哭,

And the people came to the house of God, and abode there till even before God, and lifted up their voices, and wept sore;

21:3 说,耶和华以色列的神阿,为何以色列中有这样缺了一支派的事呢。

And said, O LORD God of Israel, why is this come to pass in Israel, that there should be to day one tribe lacking in Israel?

21:4 次日清早,百姓起来,在那里筑了一座坛,献燔祭和平安祭。

And it came to pass on the morrow, that the people rose early, and built there an altar, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings.

21:5 以色列人彼此问说,以色列各支派中,谁没有同会众上到耶和华面前来呢。先是以色列人起过大誓说,凡不上米斯巴到耶和华面前来的,必将他治死。

And the children of Israel said, Who is there among all the tribes of Israel that came not up with the congregation unto the LORD? For they had made a great oath concerning him that came not up to the LORD to Mizpeh, saying, He shall surely be put to death.

21:6 以色列人为他们的弟兄便雅悯后悔,说,如今以色列中绝了一个支派了。

And the children of Israel repented them for Benjamin their brother, and said, There is one tribe cut off from Israel this day.

21:7 我们既在耶和华面前起誓说,必不将我们的女儿给便雅悯人为妻,现在我们当怎样办理,使他们剩下的人有妻呢。

How shall we do for wives for them that remain, seeing we have sworn by the LORD that we will not give them of our daughters to wives?

21:8 又彼此问说,以色列支派中谁没有上米斯巴到耶和华面前来呢。他们就查出基列雅比没有一人进营到会众那里。

And they said, What one is there of the tribes of Israel that came not up to Mizpeh to the LORD? And, behold, there came none to the camp from Jabeshgilead to the assembly.

21:9 因为百姓被数的时候,没有一个基列雅比人在那里。

For the people were numbered, and, behold, there were none of the inhabitants of Jabeshgilead there.

21:10 会众就打发一万二千大勇士,吩咐他们说,你们去用刀将基列雅比人连妇女带孩子都击杀了。

And the congregation sent thither twelve thousand men of the valiantest, and commanded them, saying, Go and smite the inhabitants of Jabeshgilead with the edge of the sword, with the women and the children.

21:11 所当行的就是这样,要将一切男子和已嫁的女子尽行杀戮。

And this is the thing that ye shall do, Ye shall utterly destroy every male, and every woman that hath lain by man.

21:12 他们在基列雅比人中,遇见了四百个未嫁的处女,就带到迦南地的示罗营里。

And they found among the inhabitants of Jabeshgilead four hundred young virgins, that had known no man by lying with any male: and they brought them unto the camp to Shiloh, which is in the land of Canaan.

21:13 全会众打发人到临门磐的便雅悯人那里,向他们说和睦的话。

And the whole congregation sent some to speak to the children of Benjamin that were in the rock Rimmon, and to call peaceably unto them.

21:14 当时便雅悯人回来了,以色列人就把所存活基列雅比的女子给他们为妻,还是不够。

And Benjamin came again at that time; and they gave them wives which they had saved alive of the women of Jabeshgilead: and yet so they sufficed them not.

21:15 百姓为便雅悯人后悔,因为耶和华使以色列人缺了一个支派(原文作使以色列中有了破口)。

And the people repented them for Benjamin, because that the LORD had made a breach in the tribes of Israel.

21:16 会中的长老说,便雅悯中的女子既然除灭了,我们当怎样办理,使那馀剩的人有妻呢。

Then the elders of the congregation said, How shall we do for wives for them that remain, seeing the women are destroyed out of Benjamin?

21:17 又说,便雅悯逃脱的人当有地业,免得以色列中涂抹了一个支派。

And they said, There must be an inheritance for them that be escaped of Benjamin, that a tribe be not destroyed out of Israel.

21:18 只是我们不能将自己的女儿给他们为妻。因为以色列人曾起誓说,有将女儿给便雅悯人为妻的,必受咒诅。

Howbeit we may not give them wives of our daughters: for the children of Israel have sworn, saying, Cursed be he that giveth a wife to Benjamin.

21:19 他们又说,在利波拿以南,伯特利以北,在示剑大路以东的示罗,年年有耶和华的节期。

Then they said, Behold, there is a feast of the LORD in Shiloh yearly in a place which is on the north side of Bethel, on the east side of the highway that goeth up from Bethel to Shechem, and on the south of Lebonah.

21:20 就吩咐便雅悯人说,你们去,在葡萄园中埋伏。

Therefore they commanded the children of Benjamin, saying, Go and lie in wait in the vineyards;

21:21 若看见示罗的女子出来跳舞,就从葡萄园出来,在示罗的女子中各抢一个为妻,回便雅悯地去。

And see, and, behold, if the daughters of Shiloh come out to dance in dances, then come ye out of the vineyards, and catch you every man his wife of the daughters of Shiloh, and go to the land of Benjamin.

21:22 他们的父亲或是弟兄若来与我们争竞,我们就说,求你们看我们的情面,施恩给这些人,因我们在争战的时候没有给他们留下女子为妻。这也不是你们将女子给他们的。若是你们给的,就算有罪。

And it shall be, when their fathers or their brethren come unto us to complain, that we will say unto them, Be favourable unto them for our sakes: because we reserved not to each man his wife in the war: for ye did not give unto them at this time, that ye should be guilty.

21:23 于是便雅悯人照样而行,按着他们的数目从跳舞的女子中抢去为妻,就回自己的地业去,又重修城邑居住。

And the children of Benjamin did so, and took them wives, according to their number, of them that danced, whom they caught: and they went and returned unto their inheritance, and repaired the cities, and dwelt in them.

21:24 当时以色列人离开那里,各归本支派,本宗族,本地业去了。

And the children of Israel departed thence at that time, every man to his tribe and to his family, and they went out from thence every man to his inheritance.

21:25 那时,以色列中没有王,各人任意而行。

In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.



旧约 -- 路得记(Ruth) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 4 章 )[]

1:1 当士师秉政的时候,国中遭遇饥荒,在犹大伯利恒,有一个人带着妻子和两个儿子,往摩押地去寄居。

Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehemjudah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons.

1:2 这人名叫以利米勒,他的妻名叫拿俄米。他两个儿子,一个名叫玛伦,一个名叫基连,都是犹大伯利恒的以法他人。他们到了摩押地,就住在那里。

And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehemjudah. And they came into the country of Moab, and continued there.

1:3 后来拿俄米的丈夫以利米勒死了,剩下妇人和她两个儿子。

And Elimelech Naomi's husband died; and she was left, and her two sons.

1:4 这两个儿子娶了摩押女子为妻,一个名叫俄珥巴,一个名叫路得,在那里住了约有十年。

And they took them wives of the women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth: and they dwelled there about ten years.

1:5 玛伦和基连二人也死了,剩下拿俄米,没有丈夫,也没有儿子。

And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them; and the woman was left of her two sons and her husband.

1:6 她就与两个儿妇起身,要从摩押地归回。因为她在摩押地,听见耶和华眷顾自己的百姓,赐粮食与他们。

Then she arose with her daughters in law, that she might return from the country of Moab: for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the LORD had visited his people in giving them bread.

1:7 于是她和两个儿妇起行离开所住的地方,要回犹大地去。

Wherefore she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters in law with her; and they went on the way to return unto the land of Judah.

1:8 拿俄米对两个儿妇说,你们各人回娘家去吧,愿耶和华恩待你们,像你们恩待已死的人与我一样。

And Naomi said unto her two daughters in law, Go, return each to her mother's house: the LORD deal kindly with you, as ye have dealt with the dead, and with me.

1:9 愿耶和华使你们各在新夫家中得平安。于是,拿俄米与她们亲嘴。她们就放声而哭,

The LORD grant you that ye may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband. Then she kissed them; and they lifted up their voice, and wept.

1:10 说,不然,我们必与你一同回你本国去。

And they said unto her, Surely we will return with thee unto thy people.

1:11 拿俄米说,我女儿们哪,回去吧,为何要跟我去呢。我还能生子作你们的丈夫吗。

And Naomi said, Turn again, my daughters: why will ye go with me? are there yet any more sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands?

1:12 我女儿们哪,回去吧,我年纪老迈,不能再有丈夫。即或说,我还有指望,今夜有丈夫可以生子。

Turn again, my daughters, go your way; for I am too old to have an husband. If I should say, I have hope, if I should have an husband also to night, and should also bear sons;

1:13 你们岂能等着他们长大呢,你们岂能等着他们不嫁别人呢。我女儿们哪,不要这样,我为你们的缘故,甚是愁苦,因为耶和华伸手攻击我。

Would ye tarry for them till they were grown? would ye stay for them from having husbands? nay, my daughters; for it grieveth me much for your sakes that the hand of the LORD is gone out against me.

1:14 两个儿妇又放声而哭,俄珥巴与婆婆亲嘴而别,只是路得舍不得拿俄米。

And they lifted up their voice, and wept again: and Orpah kissed her mother in law; but Ruth clave unto her.

1:15 拿俄米说,看哪,你嫂子已经回她本国,和她所拜的神那里去了,你也跟着你嫂子回去吧。

And she said, Behold, thy sister in law is gone back unto her people, and unto her gods: return thou after thy sister in law.

1:16 路得说,不要催我回去不跟随你,你往哪里去,我也往那里去。你在哪里住宿,我也在那里住宿。你的国就是我的国,你的神就是我的神。

And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:

1:17 你在哪里死,我也在那里死,也葬在那里。除非死能使你我相离,不然,愿耶和华重重地降罚与我。

Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.

1:18 拿俄米见路得定意要跟随自己去,就不再劝她了。

When she saw that she was stedfastly minded to go with her, then she left speaking unto her.

1:19 于是二人同行,来到伯利恒。她们到了伯利恒,合城的人就都惊讶。妇女们说,这是拿俄米吗。

So they two went until they came to Bethlehem. And it came to pass, when they were come to Bethlehem, that all the city was moved about them, and they said, Is this Naomi?

1:20 拿俄米对他们说,不要叫我拿俄米(拿俄米就是甜的意思),要叫我玛拉(玛拉就是苦的意思),因为全能者使我受了大苦。

And she said unto them, Call me not Naomi, call me Mara: for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me.

1:21 我满满的出去,耶和华使我空空的回来。耶和华降祸与我,全能者使我受苦,既是这样,你们为何还叫我拿俄米呢。

I went out full, and the LORD hath brought me home again empty: why then call ye me Naomi, seeing the LORD hath testified against me, and the Almighty hath afflicted me?

1:22 拿俄米和她儿妇摩押女子路得,从摩押地回来到伯利恒,正是动手割大麦的时候。

So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter in law, with her, which returned out of the country of Moab: and they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.



旧约 -- 路得记(Ruth) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 4 章 )[]

2:1 拿俄米的丈夫以利米勒的亲族中,有一个人名叫波阿斯,是一个大财主。

And Naomi had a kinsman of her husband's, a mighty man of wealth, of the family of Elimelech; and his name was Boaz.

2:2 摩押女子路得对拿俄米说,容我往田间去,我蒙谁的恩,就在谁的身后拾取麦穗。拿俄米说,女儿阿,你只管去。

And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace. And she said unto her, Go, my daughter.

2:3 路得就去了,来到田间,在收割的人身后拾取麦穗。她恰巧到了以利米勒本族的人,波阿斯那块田里。

And she went, and came, and gleaned in the field after the reapers: and her hap was to light on a part of the field belonging unto Boaz, who was of the kindred of Elimelech.

2:4 波阿斯正从伯利恒来,对收割的人说,愿耶和华与你们同在。他们回答说,愿耶和华赐福与你。

And, behold, Boaz came from Bethlehem, and said unto the reapers, The LORD be with you. And they answered him, The LORD bless thee.

2:5 波阿斯问监管收割的仆人说,那是谁家的女子。

Then said Boaz unto his servant that was set over the reapers, Whose damsel is this?

2:6 监管收割的仆人回答说,是那摩押女子,跟随拿俄米从摩押地回来的。

And the servant that was set over the reapers answered and said, It is the Moabitish damsel that came back with Naomi out of the country of Moab:

2:7 她说,请你容我跟着收割的人,拾取打捆剩下的麦穗,她从早晨直到如今,除了在屋子里坐一会儿,常在这里。

And she said, I pray you, let me glean and gather after the reapers among the sheaves: so she came, and hath continued even from the morning until now, that she tarried a little in the house.

2:8 波阿斯对路得说,女儿阿,听我说,不要往别人田里拾取麦穗,也不要离开这里,要常与我使女们在一处。

Then said Boaz unto Ruth, Hearest thou not, my daughter? Go not to glean in another field, neither go from hence, but abide here fast by my maidens:

2:9 我的仆人在那块田收割,你就跟着他们去。我已经吩咐仆人不可欺负你。你若渴了,就可以到器皿那里喝仆人打来的水。

Let thine eyes be on the field that they do reap, and go thou after them: have I not charged the young men that they shall not touch thee? and when thou art athirst, go unto the vessels, and drink of that which the young men have drawn.

2:10 路得就俯伏在地叩拜,对他说,我既是外邦人,怎吗蒙你的恩,这样顾恤我呢。

Then she fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, and said unto him, Why have I found grace in thine eyes, that thou shouldest take knowledge of me, seeing I am a stranger?

2:11 波阿斯回答说,自从你丈夫死后,凡你向婆婆所行的,并你离开父母和本地,到素不认识的民中,这些事人全都告诉我了。

And Boaz answered and said unto her, It hath fully been shewed me, all that thou hast done unto thy mother in law since the death of thine husband: and how thou hast left thy father and thy mother, and the land of thy nativity, and art come unto a people which thou knewest not heretofore.

2:12 愿耶和华照你所行的赏赐你。你来投靠耶和华以色列神的翅膀下,愿你满得他的赏赐。

The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.

2:13 路得说,我主阿,愿在你眼前蒙恩。我虽然不及你的一个使女,你还用慈爱的话安慰我的心。

Then she said, Let me find favour in thy sight, my lord; for that thou hast comforted me, and for that thou hast spoken friendly unto thine handmaid, though I be not like unto one of thine handmaidens.

2:14 到了吃饭的时候,波阿斯对路得说,你到这里来吃饼,将饼蘸在醋里。路得就在收割的人旁边坐下,他们把烘了的穗子递给她。她吃饱了,还有馀剩的。

And Boaz said unto her, At mealtime come thou hither, and eat of the bread, and dip thy morsel in the vinegar. And she sat beside the reapers: and he reached her parched corn, and she did eat, and was sufficed, and left.

2:15 她起来又拾取麦穗,波阿斯吩咐仆人说,她就是在捆中拾取麦穗,也可以容她,不可羞辱她。

And when she was risen up to glean, Boaz commanded his young men, saying, Let her glean even among the sheaves, and reproach her not:

2:16 并要从捆里抽出些来,留在地下任她拾取,不可叱吓她。

And let fall also some of the handfuls of purpose for her, and leave them, that she may glean them, and rebuke her not.

2:17 这样,路得在田间拾取麦穗,直到晚上,将所拾取的打了,约有一伊法大麦。

So she gleaned in the field until even, and beat out that she had gleaned: and it was about an ephah of barley.

2:18 她就把所拾取的带进城去给婆婆看,又把她吃饱了所剩的给了婆婆。

And she took it up, and went into the city: and her mother in law saw what she had gleaned: and she brought forth, and gave to her that she had reserved after she was sufficed.

2:19 婆婆问她说,你今日在哪里拾取麦穗,在哪里做工呢,愿那顾恤你的得福。路得就告诉婆婆说,我今日在一个名叫波阿斯的人那里做工。

And her mother in law said unto her, Where hast thou gleaned to day? and where wroughtest thou? blessed be he that did take knowledge of thee. And she shewed her mother in law with whom she had wrought, and said, The man's name with whom I wrought to day is Boaz.

2:20 拿俄米对儿妇说,愿那人蒙耶和华赐福,因为他不断地恩待活人死人。拿俄米又说,那是我们本族的人,是一个至近的亲属。

And Naomi said unto her daughter in law, Blessed be he of the LORD, who hath not left off his kindness to the living and to the dead. And Naomi said unto her, The man is near of kin unto us, one of our next kinsmen.

2:21 摩押女子路得说,他对我说,你要紧随我的仆人拾取麦穗,直等他们收完了我的庄稼。

And Ruth the Moabitess said, He said unto me also, Thou shalt keep fast by my young men, until they have ended all my harvest.

2:22 拿俄米对儿妇路得说,女儿阿,你跟着他的使女出去,不叫人遇见你在别人田间,这才为好。

And Naomi said unto Ruth her daughter in law, It is good, my daughter, that thou go out with his maidens, that they meet thee not in any other field.

2:23 于是路得与波阿斯的使女常在一处拾取麦穗,直到收完了大麦和小麦。路得仍与婆婆同住。

So she kept fast by the maidens of Boaz to glean unto the end of barley harvest and of wheat harvest; and dwelt with her mother in law.



旧约 -- 路得记(Ruth) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 4 章 )[]

3:1 路得的婆婆拿俄米对她说,女儿阿,我不当为你找个安身之处,使你享福吗。

Then Naomi her mother in law said unto her, My daughter, shall I not seek rest for thee, that it may be well with thee?

3:2 你与波阿斯的使女常在一处,波阿斯不是我们的亲族吗。他今夜在场上簸大麦,

And now is not Boaz of our kindred, with whose maidens thou wast? Behold, he winnoweth barley to night in the threshingfloor.

3:3 你要沭浴抹膏,换上衣服,下到场上,却不要使那人认出你来。你等他吃喝完了,

Wash thyself therefore, and anoint thee, and put thy raiment upon thee, and get thee down to the floor: but make not thyself known unto the man, until he shall have done eating and drinking.

3:4 到他睡的时候,你看准他睡的地方,就进去掀开他脚上的被,躺卧在那里,他必告诉你所当做的事。

And it shall be, when he lieth down, that thou shalt mark the place where he shall lie, and thou shalt go in, and uncover his feet, and lay thee down; and he will tell thee what thou shalt do.

3:5 路得说,凡你所吩咐的,我必遵行。

And she said unto her, All that thou sayest unto me I will do.

3:6 路得就下到场上,照她婆婆所吩咐她的而行。

And she went down unto the floor, and did according to all that her mother in law bade her.

3:7 波阿斯吃喝完了,心里欢畅,就去睡在麦堆旁边。路得便悄悄地来掀开他脚上的被,躺卧在那里。

And when Boaz had eaten and drunk, and his heart was merry, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of corn: and she came softly, and uncovered his feet, and laid her down.

3:8 到了夜半,那人忽然惊醒,翻过身来,不料有女子躺在他的脚下。

And it came to pass at midnight, that the man was afraid, and turned himself: and, behold, a woman lay at his feet.

3:9 他就说,你是谁。回答说,我是你的婢女路得。求你用你的衣襟遮盖我,因为你是我一个至近的亲属。

And he said, Who art thou? And she answered, I am Ruth thine handmaid: spread therefore thy skirt over thine handmaid; for thou art a near kinsman.

3:10 波阿斯说,女儿阿,愿你蒙耶和华赐福。你末后的恩比先前更大。因为少年人无论贫富,你都没有跟从。

And he said, Blessed be thou of the LORD, my daughter: for thou hast shewed more kindness in the latter end than at the beginning, inasmuch as thou followedst not young men, whether poor or rich.

3:11 女儿阿,现在不要惧怕,凡你所说的,我必照着行。我本城的人都知道你是个贤德的女子。

And now, my daughter, fear not; I will do to thee all that thou requirest: for all the city of my people doth know that thou art a virtuous woman.

3:12 我实在是你一个至近的亲属,只是还有一个人比我更近。

And now it is true that I am thy near kinsman: howbeit there is a kinsman nearer than I.

3:13 你今夜在这里住宿,明早他若肯为你尽亲属的本分。就由他吧。倘若不肯,我指着永生的耶和华起誓,我必为你尽了本分,你只管躺到天亮。

Tarry this night, and it shall be in the morning, that if he will perform unto thee the part of a kinsman, well; let him do the kinsman's part: but if he will not do the part of a kinsman to thee, then will I do the part of a kinsman to thee, as the LORD liveth: lie down until the morning.

3:14 路得便在他脚下躺到天快亮。人彼此不能辨认的时候就起来了。波阿斯说,不可使人知道有女子到场上来。

And she lay at his feet until the morning: and she rose up before one could know another. And he said, Let it not be known that a woman came into the floor.

3:15 又对路得说,打开你所披的外衣。她打开了,波阿斯就撮了六簸箕大麦,帮她扛在肩上,她便进城去了。

Also he said, Bring the vail that thou hast upon thee, and hold it. And when she held it, he measured six measures of barley, and laid it on her: and she went into the city.

3:16 路得回到婆婆那里,婆婆说,女儿阿,怎吗样了。路得就将那人向她所行的述说了一遍。

And when she came to her mother in law, she said, Who art thou, my daughter? And she told her all that the man had done to her.

3:17 又说,那人给了我六簸箕大麦,对我说,你不可空手回去见你的婆婆。

And she said, These six measures of barley gave he me; for he said to me, Go not empty unto thy mother in law.

3:18 婆婆说,女儿阿,你只管安坐等候,看这事怎样成就,因为那人今日不办成这事必不休息。

Then said she, Sit still, my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall: for the man will not be in rest, until he have finished the thing this day.



旧约 -- 路得记(Ruth) -- 第 4 章 ( 本篇共有 4 章 )[]

4:1 波阿斯到了城门,坐在那里,恰巧波阿斯所说的那至近的亲属经过。波阿斯说,某人哪,你来坐在这里。他就来坐下。

Then went Boaz up to the gate, and sat him down there: and, behold, the kinsman of whom Boaz spake came by; unto whom he said, Ho, such a one! turn aside, sit down here. And he turned aside, and sat down.

4:2 波阿斯又从本城的长老中拣选了十人,对他们说,请你们坐在这里。他们就都坐下。

And he took ten men of the elders of the city, and said, Sit ye down here. And they sat down.

4:3 波阿斯对那至近的亲属说,从摩押地回来的拿俄米,现在要卖我们族兄以利米勒的那块地。

And he said unto the kinsman, Naomi, that is come again out of the country of Moab, selleth a parcel of land, which was our brother Elimelech's:

4:4 我想当赎那块地的是你,其次是我,以外再没有别人了。你可以在这里的人面前,和我本国的长老面前说明,你若肯赎就赎,若不肯赎就告诉我。那人回答说,我肯赎。

And I thought to advertise thee, saying, Buy it before the inhabitants, and before the elders of my people. If thou wilt redeem it, redeem it: but if thou wilt not redeem it, then tell me, that I may know: for there is none to redeem it beside thee; and I am after thee. And he said, I will redeem it.

4:5 波阿斯说,你从拿俄米手中买这地的时候,也当娶(原文作买十节同)死人的妻摩押女子路得,使死人在产业上存留他的名。

Then said Boaz, What day thou buyest the field of the hand of Naomi, thou must buy it also of Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of the dead, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance.

4:6 那人说,这样我就不能赎了,恐怕于我的产业有碍。你可以赎我所当赎的,我不能赎了。

And the kinsman said, I cannot redeem it for myself, lest I mar mine own inheritance: redeem thou my right to thyself; for I cannot redeem it.

4:7 从前,在以色列中要定夺什么事,或赎回,或交易,这人就脱鞋给那人。以色列人都以此为证据。

Now this was the manner in former time in Israel concerning redeeming and concerning changing, for to confirm all things; a man plucked off his shoe, and gave it to his neighbour: and this was a testimony in Israel.

4:8 那人对波阿斯说,你自己买吧。于是将鞋脱下来了。

Therefore the kinsman said unto Boaz, Buy it for thee. So he drew off his shoe.

4:9 波阿斯对长老和众民说,你们今日作见证,凡属以利米勒和基连,玛伦的,我都从拿俄米手中置买了。

And Boaz said unto the elders, and unto all the people, Ye are witnesses this day, that I have bought all that was Elimelech's, and all that was Chilion's and Mahlon's, of the hand of Naomi.

4:10 又娶了玛伦的妻摩押女子路得为妻,好在死人的产业上存留他的名,免得他的名在本族本乡灭没。你们今日可以作见证。

Moreover Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon, have I purchased to be my wife, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that the name of the dead be not cut off from among his brethren, and from the gate of his place: ye are witnesses this day.

4:11 在城门坐着的众民和长老都说,我们作见证。愿耶和华使进你家的这女子,像建立以色列家的拉结,利亚二人一样。又愿你在以法他得亨通,在伯利恒得名声。

And all the people that were in the gate, and the elders, said, We are witnesses. The LORD make the woman that is come into thine house like Rachel and like Leah, which two did build the house of Israel: and do thou worthily in Ephratah, and be famous in Bethlehem:

4:12 愿耶和华从这少年女子赐你后裔,使你的家像他玛,从犹大所生法勒斯的家一般。

And let thy house be like the house of Pharez, whom Tamar bare unto Judah, of the seed which the LORD shall give thee of this young woman.

4:13 于是,波阿斯娶了路得为妻,与她同房。耶和华使她怀孕生了一个儿子。

So Boaz took Ruth, and she was his wife: and when he went in unto her, the LORD gave her conception, and she bare a son.

4:14 妇人们对拿俄米说,耶和华是应当称颂的。因为今日没有撇下你使你无至近的亲属。愿这孩子在以色列中得名声。

And the women said unto Naomi, Blessed be the LORD, which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in Israel.

4:15 他必提起你的精神,奉养你的老,因为是爱慕你的那儿妇所生的。有这儿妇比有七个儿子还好。

And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter in law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven sons, hath born him.

4:16 拿俄米就把孩子抱在怀中,作他的养母。

And Naomi took the child, and laid it in her bosom, and became nurse unto it.

4:17 邻舍的妇人说,拿俄米得孩子了。就给孩子起名叫俄备得。这俄备得是耶西的父,耶西是大卫的父。

And the women her neighbours gave it a name, saying, There is a son born to Naomi; and they called his name Obed: he is the father of Jesse, the father of David.

4:18 法勒斯的后代,记在下面。勒斯生希斯仑。

Now these are the generations of Pharez: Pharez begat Hezron,

4:19 希斯仑生兰,兰生亚米拿达。

And Hezron begat Ram, and Ram begat Amminadab,

4:20 亚米拿达生拿顺,拿顺生撒门。

And Amminadab begat Nahshon, and Nahshon begat Salmon,

4:21 撒门生波阿斯,波阿斯生俄备得。

And Salmon begat Boaz, and Boaz begat Obed,

4:22 俄备得生耶西,耶西生大卫。

And Obed begat Jesse, and Jesse begat David.



旧约 -- 撒母耳记上(1 Samuel) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 31 章 )[]

1:1 以法莲山地的拉玛琐非有一个以法莲人,名叫以利加拿,是苏弗的玄孙,托户的曾孙,以利户的孙子,耶罗罕的儿子。

Now there was a certain man of Ramathaimzophim, of mount Ephraim, and his name was Elkanah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph, an Ephrathite:

1:2 他有两个妻,一名哈拿,一名毗尼拿。毗尼拿有儿女,哈拿没有儿女。

And he had two wives; the name of the one was Hannah, and the name of the other Peninnah: and Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children.

1:3 这人每年从本城上到示罗,敬拜祭祀万军之耶和华。在那里有以利的两个儿子何弗尼,非尼哈当耶和华的祭司。

And this man went up out of his city yearly to worship and to sacrifice unto the LORD of hosts in Shiloh. And the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the priests of the LORD, were there.

1:4 以利加拿每逢献祭的日子,将祭肉分给他的妻毗尼拿和毗尼拿所生的儿女。

And when the time was that Elkanah offered, he gave to Peninnah his wife, and to all her sons and her daughters, portions:

1:5 给哈拿的却是双分,因为他爱哈拿。无奈耶和华不使哈拿生育。

But unto Hannah he gave a worthy portion; for he loved Hannah: but the LORD had shut up her womb.

1:6 毗尼拿见耶和华不使哈拿生育,就作她的对头,大大激动她,要使她生气。

And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret, because the LORD had shut up her womb.

1:7 每年上到耶和华殿的时候,以利加拿都以双分给哈拿。毗尼拿仍是激动她,以致她哭泣不吃饭。

And as he did so year by year, when she went up to the house of the LORD, so she provoked her; therefore she wept, and did not eat.

1:8 她丈夫以利加拿对她说,哈拿阿,你为何哭泣,不吃饭,心里愁闷呢。有我不比十个儿子还好吗。

Then said Elkanah her husband to her, Hannah, why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thy heart grieved? am not I better to thee than ten sons?

1:9 他们在示罗吃喝完了,哈拿就站起来。祭司以利在耶和华殿的门框旁边,坐在自己的位上。

So Hannah rose up after they had eaten in Shiloh, and after they had drunk. Now Eli the priest sat upon a seat by a post of the temple of the LORD.

1:10 哈拿心里愁苦,就痛痛哭泣,祈祷耶和华,

And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore.

1:11 许愿说,万军之耶和华阿,你若垂顾婢女的苦情,眷念不忘婢女,赐我一个儿子,我必使他终身归与耶和华,不用剃头刀剃他的头。

And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.

1:12 哈拿在耶和华面前不住地祈祷,以利定睛看她的嘴。

And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli marked her mouth.

1:13 原来哈拿心中默祷,只动嘴唇,不出声音,因此以利以为她喝醉了。

Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken.

1:14 以利对她说,你要醉到几时呢。你不应该喝酒。

And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee.

1:15 哈拿回答说,主阿,不是这样。我是心里愁苦的妇人,清酒浓酒都没有喝,但在耶和华面前倾心吐意。

And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD.

1:16 不要将婢女看作不正经的女子。我因被人激动,愁苦太多,所以祈求到如今。

Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto.

1:17 以利说,你可以平平安安地回去。愿以色列的神允准你向他所求的。

Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him.

1:18 哈拿说,愿婢女在你眼前蒙恩。于是妇人走去吃饭,面上再不带愁容了。

And she said, Let thine handmaid find grace in thy sight. So the woman went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad.

1:19 次日清早,他们起来,在耶和华面前敬拜,就回拉玛。到了家里,以利加拿和妻哈拿同房,耶和华顾念哈拿,

And they rose up in the morning early, and worshipped before the LORD, and returned, and came to their house to Ramah: and Elkanah knew Hannah his wife; and the LORD remembered her.

1:20 哈拿就怀孕。日期满足,生了一个儿子,给他起名叫撒母耳,说,这是我从耶和华那里求来的。

Wherefore it came to pass, when the time was come about after Hannah had conceived, that she bare a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, Because I have asked him of the LORD.

1:21 以利加拿和他全家都上示罗去,要向耶和华献年祭,并还所许的愿。

And the man Elkanah, and all his house, went up to offer unto the LORD the yearly sacrifice, and his vow.

1:22 哈拿却没有上去,对丈夫说,等孩子断了奶,我便带他上去朝见耶和华,使他永远住在那里。

But Hannah went not up; for she said unto her husband, I will not go up until the child be weaned, and then I will bring him, that he may appear before the LORD, and there abide for ever.

1:23 她丈夫以利加拿说,就随你的意行吧。可以等儿子断了奶。但愿耶和华应验他的话。于是妇人在家里乳养儿子,直到断了奶。

And Elkanah her husband said unto her, Do what seemeth thee good; tarry until thou have weaned him; only the LORD establish his word. So the woman abode, and gave her son suck until she weaned him.

1:24 既断了奶,就把孩子带上示罗,到了耶和华的殿。又带了三只公牛,一伊法细面,一皮袋酒。那时孩子还小。

And when she had weaned him, she took him up with her, with three bullocks, and one ephah of flour, and a bottle of wine, and brought him unto the house of the LORD in Shiloh: and the child was young.

1:25 宰了一只公牛,就领孩子到以利面前。

And they slew a bullock, and brought the child to Eli.

1:26 妇人说,主阿,我敢在你面前起誓,从前在你这里站着祈求耶和华的那妇人,就是我。

And she said, Oh my lord, as thy soul liveth, my lord, I am the woman that stood by thee here, praying unto the LORD.

1:27 我祈求为要得这孩子。耶和华已将我所求的赐给我了。

For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him:

1:28 所以,我将这孩子归与耶和华,使他终身归与耶和华。于是在那里敬拜耶和华。

Therefore also I have lent him to the LORD; as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the LORD. And he worshipped the LORD there.



旧约 -- 撒母耳记上(1 Samuel) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 31 章 )[]

2:1 哈拿祷告说,我的心因耶和华快乐。我的角因耶和华高举。我的口向仇敌张开。我因耶和华的救恩欢欣。

And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation.

2:2 只有耶和华为圣。除他以外没有可比的,也没有磐石像我们的神。

There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.

2:3 人不要夸口说骄傲的话,也不要出狂妄的言语。因耶和华是大有智识的神,人的行为被他衡量。

Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.

2:4 勇士的弓都已折断。跌倒的人以力量束腰。

The bows of the mighty men are broken, and they that stumbled are girded with strength.

2:5 素来饱足的,反作用人求食。饥饿的,再不饥饿。不生育的,生了七个儿子。多有儿女的,反倒衰微。

They that were full have hired out themselves for bread; and they that were hungry ceased: so that the barren hath born seven; and she that hath many children is waxed feeble.

2:6 耶和华使人死,也使人活,使人下阴间,也使人往上升。

The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up.

2:7 他使人贫穷,也使人富足,使人卑微,也使人高贵。

The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up.

2:8 他从灰尘里抬举贫寒人,从粪堆中提拔穷乏人,使他们与王子同坐,得着荣耀的座位。地的柱子属于耶和华。他将世界立在其上。

He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD's, and he hath set the world upon them.

2:9 他必保护圣民的脚步,使恶人在黑暗中寂然不动。人都不能靠力量得胜。

He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.

2:10 与耶和华争竞的,必被打碎。耶和华必从天上以雷攻击他,必审判地极的人,将力量赐与所立的王,高举受膏者的角。

The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.

2:11 以利加拿往拉玛回家去了。那孩子在祭司以利面前事奉耶和华。

And Elkanah went to Ramah to his house. And the child did minister unto the LORD before Eli the priest.

2:12 以利的两个儿子是恶人,不认识耶和华。

Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the LORD.

2:13 这二祭司待百姓是这样的规矩,凡有人献祭,正煮肉的时候,祭司的仆人就来,手拿三齿的叉子,

And the priests' custom with the people was, that, when any man offered sacrifice, the priest's servant came, while the flesh was in seething, with a fleshhook of three teeth in his hand;

2:14 将叉子往罐里,或鼎里,或釜里,或锅里一插,插上来的肉,祭司都取了去。凡上到示罗的以色列人,他们都是这样看待。

And he struck it into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot; all that the fleshhook brought up the priest took for himself. So they did in Shiloh unto all the Israelites that came thither.

2:15 又在未烧脂油以前,祭司的仆人就来对献祭的人说,将肉给祭司,叫他烤吧。他不要煮过的,要生的。

Also before they burnt the fat, the priest's servant came, and said to the man that sacrificed, Give flesh to roast for the priest; for he will not have sodden flesh of thee, but raw.

2:16 献祭的人若说,必须先烧脂油,然后你可以随意取肉。仆人就说,你立时给我,不然我便抢去。

And if any man said unto him, Let them not fail to burn the fat presently, and then take as much as thy soul desireth; then he would answer him, Nay; but thou shalt give it me now: and if not, I will take it by force.

2:17 如此,这二少年人的罪在耶和华面前甚重了,因为他们藐视耶和华的祭物(或作他们使人厌弃给耶和华献祭)。

Wherefore the sin of the young men was very great before the LORD: for men abhorred the offering of the LORD.

2:18 那时,撒母耳还是孩子,穿着细麻布的以弗得,侍立在耶和华面前。

But Samuel ministered before the LORD, being a child, girded with a linen ephod.

2:19 他母亲每年为他作一件小外袍,同着丈夫上来献年祭的时候带来给他。

Moreover his mother made him a little coat, and brought it to him from year to year, when she came up with her husband to offer the yearly sacrifice.

2:20 以利为以利加拿和他的妻祝福,说,愿耶和华由这妇人再赐你后裔,代替你从耶和华求来的孩子。他们就回本乡去了。

And Eli blessed Elkanah and his wife, and said, The LORD give thee seed of this woman for the loan which is lent to the LORD. And they went unto their own home.

2:21 耶和华眷顾哈拿,她就怀孕生了三个儿子,两个女儿。那孩子撒母耳在耶和华面前渐渐长大。

And the LORD visited Hannah, so that she conceived, and bare three sons and two daughters. And the child Samuel grew before the LORD.

2:22 以利年甚老迈,听见他两个儿子待以色列众人的事,又听见他们与会幕门前伺候的妇人苟合,

Now Eli was very old, and heard all that his sons did unto all Israel; and how they lay with the women that assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

2:23 他就对他们说,你们为何行这样的事呢。我从这众百姓听见你们的恶行。

And he said unto them, Why do ye such things? for I hear of your evil dealings by all this people.

2:24 我儿阿,不可这样。我听见你们的风声不好,你们使耶和华的百姓犯了罪。

Nay, my sons; for it is no good report that I hear: ye make the LORD's people to transgress.

2:25 人若得罪人,有士师审判他。人若得罪耶和华,谁能为他祈求呢。然而他们还是不听父亲的话,因为耶和华想要杀他们。

If one man sin against another, the judge shall judge him: but if a man sin against the LORD, who shall intreat for him? Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto the voice of their father, because the LORD would slay them.

2:26 孩子撒母耳渐渐长大,耶和华与人越发喜爱他。

And the child Samuel grew on, and was in favour both with the LORD, and also with men.

2:27 有神人来见以利,对他说,耶和华如此说,你祖父在埃及法老家作奴仆的时候,我不是向他们显现吗。

And there came a man of God unto Eli, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Did I plainly appear unto the house of thy father, when they were in Egypt in Pharaoh's house?

2:28 在以色列众支派中,我不是拣选人作我的祭司,使他烧香,在我坛上献祭,在我面前穿以弗得,又将以色列人所献的火祭都赐给你父家吗。

And did I choose him out of all the tribes of Israel to be my priest, to offer upon mine altar, to burn incense, to wear an ephod before me? and did I give unto the house of thy father all the offerings made by fire of the children of Israel?

2:29 我所吩咐献在我居所的祭物,你们为何践踏。尊重你的儿子过于尊重我,将我民以色列所献美好的祭物肥己呢。

Wherefore kick ye at my sacrifice and at mine offering, which I have commanded in my habitation; and honourest thy sons above me, to make yourselves fat with the chiefest of all the offerings of Israel my people?

2:30 因此,耶和华以色列的神说,我曾说,你和你父家必永远行在我面前。现在我却说,决不容你们这样行。因为尊重我的,我必重看他。藐视我的,他必被轻视。

Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.

2:31 日子必到,我要折断你的膀臂和你父家的膀臂,使你家中没有一个老年人。

Behold, the days come, that I will cut off thine arm, and the arm of thy father's house, that there shall not be an old man in thine house.

2:32 在神使以色列人享福的时候,你必看见我居所的败落。在你家中必永远没有一个老年人。

And thou shalt see an enemy in my habitation, in all the wealth which God shall give Israel: and there shall not be an old man in thine house for ever.

2:33 我必不从我坛前灭尽你家中的人。那未灭的必使你眼目乾瘪,心中忧伤。你家中所生的人都必死在中年。

And the man of thine, whom I shall not cut off from mine altar, shall be to consume thine eyes, and to grieve thine heart: and all the increase of thine house shall die in the flower of their age.

2:34 你的两个儿子何弗尼,非尼哈所遭遇的事可作你的证据,他们二人必一日同死。

And this shall be a sign unto thee, that shall come upon thy two sons, on Hophni and Phinehas; in one day they shall die both of them.

2:35 我要为自己立一个忠心的祭司。他必照我的心意而行。我要为他建立坚固的家。他必永远行在我的受膏者面前。

And I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in mine heart and in my mind: and I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before mine anointed for ever.

2:36 你家所剩下的人都必来叩拜他,求块银子,求个饼,说,求你赐我祭司的职分,好叫我得点饼吃。

And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left in thine house shall come and crouch to him for a piece of silver and a morsel of bread, and shall say, Put me, I pray thee, into one of the priests' offices, that I may eat a piece of bread.



旧约 -- 撒母耳记上(1 Samuel) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 31 章 )[]

3:1 童子撒母耳在以利面前事奉耶和华。当那些日子,耶和华的言语稀少,不常有默示。

And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was precious in those days; there was no open vision.

3:2 一日,以利睡卧在自己的地方。他眼目昏花,看不分明。

And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was laid down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim, that he could not see;

3:3 神的灯在神耶和华殿内约柜那里,还没有熄灭,撒母耳已经睡了。

And ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep;

3:4 耶和华呼唤撒母耳。撒母耳说,我在这里。

That the LORD called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I.

3:5 就跑到以利那里,说,你呼唤我。我在这里。以利回答说,我没有呼唤你,你去睡吧。他就去睡了。

And he ran unto Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou calledst me. And he said, I called not; lie down again. And he went and lay down.

3:6 耶和华又呼唤撒母耳。撒母耳起来,到以利那里,说,你呼唤我。我在这里。以利回答说,我的儿,我没有呼唤你,你去睡吧。

And the LORD called yet again, Samuel. And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And he answered, I called not, my son; lie down again.

3:7 那时撒母耳还未认识耶和华,也未得耶和华的默示。

Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him.

3:8 耶和华第三次呼唤撒母耳。撒母耳起来,到以利那里,说,你又呼唤我。我在这里。以利才明白是耶和华呼唤童子。

And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child.

3:9 因此以利对撒母耳说,你仍去睡吧。若再呼唤你,你就说,耶和华阿,请说,仆人敬听。撒母耳就去,仍睡在原处。

Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, LORD; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place.

3:10 耶和华又来站着,像前三次呼唤说,撒母耳阿。撒母耳阿。撒母耳回答说,请说,仆人敬听。

And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.

3:11 耶和华对撒母耳说,我在以色列中必行一件事,叫听见的人都必耳呜。

And the LORD said to Samuel, Behold, I will do a thing in Israel, at which both the ears of every one that heareth it shall tingle.

3:12 我指着以利家所说的话,到了时候,我必始终应验在以利身上。

In that day I will perform against Eli all things which I have spoken concerning his house: when I begin, I will also make an end.

3:13 我曾告诉他必永远降罚与他的家,因他知道儿子作孽,自招咒诅,却不禁止他们。

For I have told him that I will judge his house for ever for the iniquity which he knoweth; because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not.

3:14 所以我向以利家起誓说,以利家的罪孽,虽献祭奉礼物,永不能得赎去。

And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the iniquity of Eli's house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering for ever.

3:15 撒母耳睡到天亮,就开了耶和华的殿门,不敢将默示告诉以利。

And Samuel lay until the morning, and opened the doors of the house of the LORD. And Samuel feared to shew Eli the vision.

3:16 以利呼唤撒母耳说,我儿撒母耳阿。撒母耳回答说,我在这里。

Then Eli called Samuel, and said, Samuel, my son. And he answered, Here am I.

3:17 以利说,耶和华对你说什么,你不要向我隐瞒。你若将神对你所说的隐瞒一句,愿他重重地降罚与你。

And he said, What is the thing that the LORD hath said unto thee? I pray thee hide it not from me: God do so to thee, and more also, if thou hide any thing from me of all the things that he said unto thee.

3:18 撒母耳就把一切话都告诉了以利,并没有隐瞒。以利说,这是出于耶和华,愿他凭自己的意旨而行。

And Samuel told him every whit, and hid nothing from him. And he said, It is the LORD: let him do what seemeth him good.

3:19 撒母耳长大了,耶和华与他同在,使他所说的话一句都不落空。

And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground.

3:20 从但到别是巴所有的以色列人,都知道耶和华立撒母耳为先知。

And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the LORD.

3:21 耶和华又在示罗显现。因为耶和华将自己的话默示撒母耳,撒母耳就把这话传遍以色列地。

And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD.



旧约 -- 撒母耳记上(1 Samuel) -- 第 4 章 ( 本篇共有 31 章 )[]

4:1 以色列人出去与非利士人打仗,安营在以便以谢。非利士人安营在亚弗。

And the word of Samuel came to all Israel. Now Israel went out against the Philistines to battle, and pitched beside Ebenezer: and the Philistines pitched in Aphek.

4:2 非利士人向以色列人摆阵。两军交战的时候,以色列人败在非利士人面前。非利士人在战场上杀了他们的军兵约有四千人。

And the Philistines put themselves in array against Israel: and when they joined battle, Israel was smitten before the Philistines: and they slew of the army in the field about four thousand men.

4:3 百姓回到营里,以色列的长老说,耶和华今日为何使我们败在非利士人面前呢。我们不如将耶和华的约柜从示罗抬到我们这里来,好在我们中间救我们脱离敌人的手。

And when the people were come into the camp, the elders of Israel said, Wherefore hath the LORD smitten us to day before the Philistines? Let us fetch the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of Shiloh unto us, that, when it cometh among us, it may save us out of the hand of our enemies.

4:4 于是百姓打发人到示罗,从那里将坐在二基路伯上万军之耶和华的约柜抬来。以利的两个儿子何弗尼,非尼哈与神的约柜同来。

So the people sent to Shiloh, that they might bring from thence the ark of the covenant of the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth between the cherubims: and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were there with the ark of the covenant of God.

4:5 耶和华的约柜到了营中,以色列众人就大声欢呼,地便震动。

And when the ark of the covenant of the LORD came into the camp, all Israel shouted with a great shout, so that the earth rang again.

4:6 非利士人听见欢呼的声音,就说,在希伯来人营里大声欢呼,是什么缘故呢。随后就知道耶和华的约柜到了营中。

And when the Philistines heard the noise of the shout, they said, What meaneth the noise of this great shout in the camp of the Hebrews? And they understood that the ark of the LORD was come into the camp.

4:7 非利士人就惧怕起来,说,有神到了他们营中。又说,我们有祸了。向来不曾有这样的事。

And the Philistines were afraid, for they said, God is come into the camp. And they said, Woe unto us! for there hath not been such a thing heretofore.

4:8 我们有祸了。谁能救我们脱离这些大能之神的手呢。从前在旷野用各样灾殃击打埃及人的,就是这些神。

Woe unto us! who shall deliver us out of the hand of these mighty Gods? these are the Gods that smote the Egyptians with all the plagues in the wilderness.

4:9 非利士人哪,你们要刚强,要作大丈夫,免得作希伯来人的奴仆,如同他们作你们的奴仆一样。你们要作大丈夫,与他们争战。

Be strong, and quit yourselves like men, O ye Philistines, that ye be not servants unto the Hebrews, as they have been to you: quit yourselves like men, and fight.

4:10 非利士人和以色列人打仗,以色列人败了,各向各家奔逃,被杀的人甚多,以色列的步兵仆倒了三万。

And the Philistines fought, and Israel was smitten, and they fled every man into his tent: and there was a very great slaughter; for there fell of Israel thirty thousand footmen.

4:11 神的约柜被掳去,以利的两个儿子何弗尼,非尼哈也都被杀了。

And the ark of God was taken; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain.

4:12 当日,有一个便雅悯人从阵上逃跑,衣服撕裂,头蒙灰尘,来到示罗。

And there ran a man of Benjamin out of the army, and came to Shiloh the same day with his clothes rent, and with earth upon his head.

4:13 到了的时候,以利正在道旁坐在自己的位上观望,为神的约柜心里担忧。那人进城报信,合城的人就都呼喊起来。

And when he came, lo, Eli sat upon a seat by the wayside watching: for his heart trembled for the ark of God. And when the man came into the city, and told it, all the city cried out.

4:14 以利听见呼喊的声音就问说,这喧囔是什么缘故呢。那人急忙来报信给以利。

And when Eli heard the noise of the crying, he said, What meaneth the noise of this tumult? And the man came in hastily, and told Eli.

4:15 那时以利九十八岁了,眼目发直,不能看见。

Now Eli was ninety and eight years old; and his eyes were dim, that he could not see.

4:16 那人对以利说,我是从阵上来的,今日我从阵上逃回。以利说,我儿,事情怎样。

And the man said unto Eli, I am he that came out of the army, and I fled to day out of the army. And he said, What is there done, my son?

4:17 报信的回答说,以色列人在非利士人面前逃跑,民中被杀的甚多。你的两个儿子何弗尼,非尼哈也都死了,并且神的约柜被掳去。

And the messenger answered and said, Israel is fled before the Philistines, and there hath been also a great slaughter among the people, and thy two sons also, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead, and the ark of God is taken.

4:18 他一提神的约柜,以利就从他的位上往后跌倒,在门旁折断颈项而死。因为他年纪老迈,身体沉重。以利作以色列的士师四十年。

And it came to pass, when he made mention of the ark of God, that he fell from off the seat backward by the side of the gate, and his neck brake, and he died: for he was an old man, and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years.

4:19 以利的儿妇,非尼哈的妻怀孕将到产期,她听见神的约柜被掳去,公公和丈夫都死了,就猛然疼痛,曲身生产。

And his daughter in law, Phinehas' wife, was with child, near to be delivered: and when she heard the tidings that the ark of God was taken, and that her father in law and her husband were dead, she bowed herself and travailed; for her pains came upon her.

4:20 将要死的时候,旁边站着的妇人们对她说,不要怕。你生了男孩子了。她却不回答,也不放在心上。

And about the time of her death the women that stood by her said unto her, Fear not; for thou hast born a son. But she answered not, neither did she regard it.

4:21 她给孩子起名叫以迦博,说,荣耀离开以色列了。这是因神的约柜被掳去,又因她公公和丈夫都死了。

And she named the child Ichabod, saying, The glory is departed from Israel: because the ark of God was taken, and because of her father in law and her husband.

4:22 她又说,荣耀离开以色列,因为神的约柜被掳去了。

And she said, The glory is departed from Israel: for the ark of God is taken.


旧约 -- 撒母耳记上(1 Samuel) -- 第 5 章 ( 本篇共有 31 章 )[]

5:1 非利士人将神的约柜从以便以谢抬到亚实突。

And the Philistines took the ark of God, and brought it from Ebenezer unto Ashdod.

5:2 非利士人将神的约柜抬进大衮庙,放在大衮的旁边。

When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon.

5:3 次日清早,亚实突人起来,见大衮仆倒在耶和华的约柜前,脸伏于地,就把大衮仍立在原处。

And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the LORD. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again.

5:4 又次日清早起来,见大衮仆倒在耶和华的约柜前,脸伏于地,并且大衮的头和两手都在门槛上折断,只剩下大衮的残体。

And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him.

5:5 因此,大衮的祭司和一切进亚实突,大衮庙的人都不踏大衮庙的门槛,直到今日。

Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon's house, tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day.

5:6 耶和华的手重重加在亚实突人身上,败坏他们,使他们生痔疮。亚实突和亚实突的四境都是如此。

But the hand of the LORD was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts thereof.

5:7 亚实突人见这光景,就说,以色列神的约柜不可留在我们这里,因为他的手重重加在我们和我们神大衮的身上。

And when the men of Ashdod saw that it was so, they said, The ark of the God of Israel shall not abide with us: for his hand is sore upon us, and upon Dagon our god.

5:8 就打发人去请非利士的众首领来聚集,问他们说,我们向以色列神的约柜应当怎样行呢。他们回答说,可以将以色列神的约柜运到迦特去。于是将以色列神的约柜运到那里去。

They sent therefore and gathered all the lords of the Philistines unto them, and said, What shall we do with the ark of the God of Israel? And they answered, Let the ark of the God of Israel be carried about unto Gath. And they carried the ark of the God of Israel about thither.

5:9 运到之后,耶和华的手攻击那城,使那城的人大大惊慌,无论大小都生痔疮。

And it was so, that, after they had carried it about, the hand of the LORD was against the city with a very great destruction: and he smote the men of the city, both small and great, and they had emerods in their secret parts.

5:10 他们就把神的约柜送到以革伦。神的约柜到了,以革伦人就喊囔起来说,他们将以色列神的约柜运到我们这里,要害我们和我们的众民。

Therefore they sent the ark of God to Ekron. And it came to pass, as the ark of God came to Ekron, that the Ekronites cried out, saying, They have brought about the ark of the God of Israel to us, to slay us and our people.

5:11 于是打发人去请非利士的众首领来,说,愿你们将以色列神的约柜送回原处,免得害了我们和我们的众民。原来神的手重重攻击那城,城中的人有因惊慌而死的。

So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said, Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it go again to his own place, that it slay us not, and our people: for there was a deadly destruction throughout all the city; the hand of God was very heavy there.

5:12 未曾死的人都生了痔疮。合城呼号,声音上达于天。

And the men that died not were smitten with the emerods: and the cry of the city went up to heaven.



旧约 -- 撒母耳记上(1 Samuel) -- 第 6 章 ( 本篇共有 31 章 )[]

6:1 耶和华的约柜在非利士人之地七个月。

And the ark of the LORD was in the country of the Philistines seven months.

6:2 非利士人将祭司和占卜的聚了来,问他们说,我们向耶和华的约柜应当怎样行。请指示我们用何法将约柜送回原处。

And the Philistines called for the priests and the diviners, saying, What shall we do to the ark of the LORD? tell us wherewith we shall send it to his place.

6:3 他们说,若要将以色列神的约柜送回去,不可空空地送去,必要给他献赔罪的礼物,然后你们可得痊愈,并知道他的手为何不离开你们。

And they said, If ye send away the ark of the God of Israel, send it not empty; but in any wise return him a trespass offering: then ye shall be healed, and it shall be known to you why his hand is not removed from you.

6:4 非利士人说,应当用什么献为赔罪的礼物呢。他们回答说,当照非利士首领的数目,用五个金痔疮,五个金老鼠,因为在你们众人和你们首领的身上都是一样的灾。

Then said they, What shall be the trespass offering which we shall return to him? They answered, Five golden emerods, and five golden mice, according to the number of the lords of the Philistines: for one plague was on you all, and on your lords.

6:5 所以当制造你们痔疮的像和毁坏你们田地老鼠的像,并要归荣耀给以色列的神,或者他向你们和你们的神,并你们的田地,把手放轻些。

Wherefore ye shall make images of your emerods, and images of your mice that mar the land; and ye shall give glory unto the God of Israel: peradventure he will lighten his hand from off you, and from off your gods, and from off your land.

6:6 你们为何硬着心像埃及人和法老一样呢。神在埃及人中间行奇事,埃及人岂不释放以色列人,他们就去了吗。

Wherefore then do ye harden your hearts, as the Egyptians and Pharaoh hardened their hearts? when he had wrought wonderfully among them, did they not let the people go, and they departed?

6:7 现在你们应当造一辆新车,将两只未曾负轭有乳的母牛套在车上,使牛犊回家去,离开母牛。

Now therefore make a new cart, and take two milch kine, on which there hath come no yoke, and tie the kine to the cart, and bring their calves home from them:

6:8 把耶和华的约柜放在车上,将所献赔罪的金物装在匣子里,放在柜旁,将柜送去。

And take the ark of the LORD, and lay it upon the cart; and put the jewels of gold, which ye return him for a trespass offering, in a coffer by the side thereof; and send it away, that it may go.

6:9 你们要看看,车若直行以色列的境界到伯示麦去,这大灾就是耶和华降在我们身上的。若不然,便可以知道不是他的手击打我们,是我们偶然遇见的。

And see, if it goeth up by the way of his own coast to Bethshemesh, then he hath done us this great evil: but if not, then we shall know that it is not his hand that smote us: it was a chance that happened to us.

6:10 非利士人就这样行,将两只有乳的母牛套在车上,将牛犊关在家里,

And the men did so; and took two milch kine, and tied them to the cart, and shut up their calves at home:

6:11 把耶和华的约柜和装金老鼠并金痔疮像的匣子都放在车上。

And they laid the ark of the LORD upon the cart, and the coffer with the mice of gold and the images of their emerods.

6:12 牛直行大道,往伯示麦去,一面走一面叫,不偏左右。非利士的首领跟在后面,直到伯示麦的境界。

And the kine took the straight way to the way of Bethshemesh, and went along the highway, lowing as they went, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left; and the lords of the Philistines went after them unto the border of Bethshemesh.

6:13 伯示麦人正在平原收割麦子,举目看见约柜,就欢喜了。

And they of Bethshemesh were reaping their wheat harvest in the valley: and they lifted up their eyes, and saw the ark, and rejoiced to see it.

6:14 车到了伯示麦人约书亚的田间,就站住了。在那里有一块大磐石,他们把车劈了,将两只母牛献给耶和华为燔祭。

And the cart came into the field of Joshua, a Bethshemite, and stood there, where there was a great stone: and they clave the wood of the cart, and offered the kine a burnt offering unto the LORD.

6:15 利未人将耶和华的约柜和装金物的匣子拿下来,放在大磐石上。当日伯示麦人将燔祭和平安祭献给耶和华。

And the Levites took down the ark of the LORD, and the coffer that was with it, wherein the jewels of gold were, and put them on the great stone: and the men of Bethshemesh offered burnt offerings and sacrificed sacrifices the same day unto the LORD.

6:16 非利士人的五个首领看见,当日就回以革伦去了。

And when the five lords of the Philistines had seen it, they returned to Ekron the same day.

6:17 非利士人献给耶和华作赔罪的金痔疮像,就是这些,一个是为亚实突,一个是为迦萨,一个是为亚实基伦,一个是为迦特,一个是为以革伦。

And these are the golden emerods which the Philistines returned for a trespass offering unto the LORD; for Ashdod one, for Gaza one, for Askelon one, for Gath one, for Ekron one;

6:18 金老鼠的数目是照非利士五个首领的城邑,就是坚固的城邑和乡村,以及大磐石。这磐石是放耶和华约柜的,到今日还在伯示麦人约书亚的田间。

And the golden mice, according to the number of all the cities of the Philistines belonging to the five lords, both of fenced cities, and of country villages, even unto the great stone of Abel, whereon they set down the ark of the LORD: which stone remaineth unto this day in the field of Joshua, the Bethshemite.

6:19 耶和华因伯示麦人擅观他的约柜,就击杀了他们七十人。那时有五万人在那里(原文作七十人加五万人)。百姓因耶和华大大击杀他们,就哀哭了。

And he smote the men of Bethshemesh, because they had looked into the ark of the LORD, even he smote of the people fifty thousand and threescore and ten men: and the people lamented, because the LORD had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter.

6:20 伯示麦人说,谁能在耶和华这圣洁的神面前侍立呢。这约柜可以从我们这里送到谁那里去呢。

And the men of Bethshemesh said, Who is able to stand before this holy LORD God? and to whom shall he go up from us?

6:21 于是打发人去见基列耶琳的居民,说,非利士人将耶和华的约柜送回来了,你们下来将约柜接到你们那里去吧。

And they sent messengers to the inhabitants of Kirjathjearim, saying, The Philistines have brought again the ark of the LORD; come ye down, and fetch it up to you.



旧约 -- 撒母耳记上(1 Samuel) -- 第 7 章 ( 本篇共有 31 章 )[]

7:1 基列耶琳人就下来,将耶和华的约柜接上去,放在山上亚比拿达的家中,分派他儿子以利亚撒看守耶和华的约柜。

And the men of Kirjathjearim came, and fetched up the ark of the LORD, and brought it into the house of Abinadab in the hill, and sanctified Eleazar his son to keep the ark of the LORD.

7:2 约柜在基列耶琳许久。过了二十年,以色列全家都倾向耶和华。

And it came to pass, while the ark abode in Kirjathjearim, that the time was long; for it was twenty years: and all the house of Israel lamented after the LORD.

7:3 撒母耳对以色列全家说,你们若一心归顺耶和华,就要把外邦的神和亚斯她录从你们中间除掉,专心归向耶和华,单单地事奉他。他必救你们脱离非利士人的手。

And Samuel spake unto all the house of Israel, saying, If ye do return unto the LORD with all your hearts, then put away the strange gods and Ashtaroth from among you, and prepare your hearts unto the LORD, and serve him only: and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines.

7:4 以色列人就除掉诸巴力和亚斯她录,单单地事奉耶和华。

Then the children of Israel did put away Baalim and Ashtaroth, and served the LORD only.

7:5 撒母耳说,要使以色列众人聚集在米斯巴,我好为你们祷告耶和华。

And Samuel said, Gather all Israel to Mizpeh, and I will pray for you unto the LORD.

7:6 他们就聚集在米斯巴,打水浇在耶和华面前,当日禁食,说,我们得罪了耶和华。于是撒母耳在米斯巴审判以色列人。

And they gathered together to Mizpeh, and drew water, and poured it out before the LORD, and fasted on that day, and said there, We have sinned against the LORD. And Samuel judged the children of Israel in Mizpeh.

7:7 非利士人听见以色列人聚集在米斯巴,非利士的首领就上来要攻击以色列人。以色列人听见,就惧怕非利士人。

And when the Philistines heard that the children of Israel were gathered together to Mizpeh, the lords of the Philistines went up against Israel. And when the children of Israel heard it, they were afraid of the Philistines.

7:8 以色列人对撒母耳说,愿你不住地为我们呼求耶和华我们的神,救我们脱离非利士人的手。

And the children of Israel said to Samuel, Cease not to cry unto the LORD our God for us, that he will save us out of the hand of the Philistines.

7:9 撒母耳就把一只吃奶的羊羔献与耶和华作全牲的燔祭,为以色列人呼求耶和华。耶和华就应允他。

And Samuel took a sucking lamb, and offered it for a burnt offering wholly unto the LORD: and Samuel cried unto the LORD for Israel; and the LORD heard him.

7:10 撒母耳正献燔祭的时候,非利士人前来要与以色列人争战。当日,耶和华大发雷声,惊乱非利士人,他们就败在以色列人面前。

And as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel: but the LORD thundered with a great thunder on that day upon the Philistines, and discomfited them; and they were smitten before Israel.

7:11 以色列人从米斯巴出来,追赶非利士人,击杀他们,直到伯甲的下边。

And the men of Israel went out of Mizpeh, and pursued the Philistines, and smote them, until they came under Bethcar.

7:12 撒母耳将一块石头立在米斯巴和善的中间,给石头起名叫以便以谢,说,到如今耶和华都帮助我们。

Then Samuel took a stone, and set it between Mizpeh and Shen, and called the name of it Ebenezer, saying, Hitherto hath the LORD helped us.

7:13 从此,非利士人就被制伏,不敢再入以色列人的境内。撒母耳作士师的时候,耶和华的手攻击非利士人。

So the Philistines were subdued, and they came no more into the coast of Israel: and the hand of the LORD was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel.

7:14 非利士人所取以色列人的城邑,从以革伦直到迦特,都归以色列人了。属这些城的四境,以色列人也从非利士人手下收回。那时以色列人与亚摩利人和好。

And the cities which the Philistines had taken from Israel were restored to Israel, from Ekron even unto Gath; and the coasts thereof did Israel deliver out of the hands of the Philistines. And there was peace between Israel and the Amorites.

7:15 撒母耳平生作以色列的士师。

And Samuel judged Israel all the days of his life.

7:16 他每年巡行到伯特利,吉甲,米斯巴,在这几处审判以色列人。

And he went from year to year in circuit to Bethel, and Gilgal, and Mizpeh, and judged Israel in all those places.

7:17 随后回到拉玛,因为他的家在那里。也在那里审判以色列人,且为耶和华筑了一座坛。

And his return was to Ramah; for there was his house; and there he judged Israel; and there he built an altar unto the LORD.



旧约 -- 撒母耳记上(1 Samuel) -- 第 8 章 ( 本篇共有 31 章 )[]

8:1 撒母耳年纪老迈,就立他儿子作以色列的士师。

And it came to pass, when Samuel was old, that he made his sons judges over Israel.

8:2 长子名叫约珥,次子名叫亚比亚。他们在别是巴作士师。

Now the name of his firstborn was Joel; and the name of his second, Abiah: they were judges in Beersheba.

8:3 他儿子不行他的道,贪图财利,收受贿赂,屈枉正直。

And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment.

8:4 以色列的长老都聚集,来到拉玛见撒母耳,

Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah,

8:5 对他说,你年纪老迈了,你儿子不行你的道。现在求你为我们立一个王治理我们,像列国一样。

And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.

8:6 撒母耳不喜悦他们说立一个王治理我们,他就祷告耶和华。

But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD.

8:7 耶和华对撒母耳说,百姓向你说的一切话,你只管依从。因为他们不是厌弃你,乃是厌弃我,不要我作他们的王。

And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.

8:8 自从我领他们出埃及到如今,他们常常离弃我,事奉别神。现在他们向你所行的,是照他们素来所行的。

According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.

8:9 故此你要依从他们的话,只是当警戒他们,告诉他们将来那王怎样管辖他们。

Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.

8:10 撒母耳将耶和华的话都传给求他立王的百姓,说,

And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king.

8:11 管辖你们的王必这样行,他必派你们的儿子为他赶车,跟马,奔走在车前。

And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots.

8:12 又派他们作千夫长,五十夫长,为他耕种田地,收割庄稼,打造军器和车上的器械。

And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.

8:13 必取你们的女儿为他制造香膏,作饭烤饼。

And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.

8:14 也必取你们最好的田地,葡萄园,橄榄园赐给他的臣仆。

And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.

8:15 你们的粮食和葡萄园所出的,他必取十分之一给他的太监和臣仆。

And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.

8:16 又必取你们的仆人婢女,健壮的少年人和你们的驴,供他的差役。

And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.

8:17 你们的羊群,他必取十分之一,你们也必作他的仆人。

He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.

8:18 那时你们必因所选的王哀求耶和华,耶和华却不应允你们。

And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.

8:19 百姓竟不肯听撒母耳的话,说,不然。我们定要一个王治理我们,

Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us;

8:20 使我们像列国一样,有王治理我们,统领我们,为我们争战。

That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.

8:21 撒母耳听见百姓这一切话,就将这话陈明在耶和华面前。

And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the LORD.

8:22 耶和华对撒母耳说,你只管依从他们的话,为他们立王。撒母耳对以色列人说,你们各归各城去吧。

And the LORD said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, Go ye every man unto his city.



旧约 -- 撒母耳记上(1 Samuel) -- 第 9 章 ( 本篇共有 31 章 )[]

9:1 有一个便雅悯人,名叫基士,是便雅悯人亚斐亚的玄孙,比歌拉的曾孙,洗罗的孙子,亚别的儿子,是个大能的勇士(或作大财主)。

Now there was a man of Benjamin, whose name was Kish, the son of Abiel, the son of Zeror, the son of Bechorath, the son of Aphiah, a Benjamite, a mighty man of power.

9:2 他有一个儿子,名叫扫罗,又健壮,又俊美,在以色列人中没有一个能比他的。身体比众民高过一头。

And he had a son, whose name was Saul, a choice young man, and a goodly: and there was not among the children of Israel a goodlier person than he: from his shoulders and upward he was higher than any of the people.

9:3 扫罗的父亲基士丢了几头驴,他就吩咐儿子扫罗说,你带一个仆人去寻梢驴。

And the asses of Kish Saul's father were lost. And Kish said to Saul his son, Take now one of the servants with thee, and arise, go seek the asses.

9:4 扫罗就走过以法莲山地,又过沙利沙地,都没有找着。又过沙琳地,驴也不在那里。又过便雅悯地,还没有找着。

And he passed through mount Ephraim, and passed through the land of Shalisha, but they found them not: then they passed through the land of Shalim, and there they were not: and he passed through the land of the Benjamites, but they found them not.

9:5 到了苏弗地,扫罗对跟随他的仆人说,我们不如回去,恐怕我父亲不为驴挂心,反为我们担忧。

And when they were come to the land of Zuph, Saul said to his servant that was with him, Come, and let us return; lest my father leave caring for the asses, and take thought for us.

9:6 仆人说,这城里有一位神人,是众人所尊重的,凡他所说的全都应验。我们不如往他那里去,或者他能将我们当走的路指示我们。

And he said unto him, Behold now, there is in this city a man of God, and he is an honourable man; all that he saith cometh surely to pass: now let us go thither; peradventure he can shew us our way that we should go.

9:7 扫罗对仆人说,我们若去,有什么可以送那人呢。我们囊中的食物都吃尽了,也没有礼物可以送那神人,我们还有什么没有。

Then said Saul to his servant, But, behold, if we go, what shall we bring the man? for the bread is spent in our vessels, and there is not a present to bring to the man of God: what have we?

9:8 仆人回答扫罗说,我手里有银子一舍客勒的四分之一,可以送那神人,请他指示我们当走的路。

And the servant answered Saul again, and said, Behold, I have here at hand the fourth part of a shekel of silver: that will I give to the man of God, to tell us our way.

9:9 (从前以色列中,若有人去问神,就说,我们问先见去吧。现在称为先知的,从前称为先见。)

(Beforetime in Israel, when a man went to enquire of God, thus he spake, Come, and let us go to the seer: for he that is now called a Prophet was beforetime called a Seer.)

9:10 扫罗对仆人说,你说的是,我们可以去。于是他们往神人所住的城里去了。

Then said Saul to his servant, Well said; come, let us go. So they went unto the city where the man of God was.

9:11 他们上坡要进城,就遇见几个少年女子出来打水,问她们说,先见在这里没有。

And as they went up the hill to the city, they found young maidens going out to draw water, and said unto them, Is the seer here?

9:12 女子回答说,在这里,他在你们前面。快去吧。他今日正到城里,因为今日百姓要在邱坛献祭。

And they answered them, and said, He is; behold, he is before you: make haste now, for he came to day to the city; for there is a sacrifice of the people to day in the high place:

9:13 在他还没有上邱坛吃祭物之先,你们一进城必遇见他。因他未到,百姓不能吃,必等他先祝祭,然后请的客才吃。现在你们上去,这时候必遇见他。

As soon as ye be come into the city, ye shall straightway find him, before he go up to the high place to eat: for the people will not eat until he come, because he doth bless the sacrifice; and afterwards they eat that be bidden. Now therefore get you up; for about this time ye shall find him.

9:14 二人就上去。将进城的时候,撒母耳正迎着他们来,要上邱坛去。

And they went up into the city: and when they were come into the city, behold, Samuel came out against them, for to go up to the high place.

9:15 扫罗未到的前一日,耶和华已经指示撒母耳说,

Now the LORD had told Samuel in his ear a day before Saul came, saying,

9:16 明日这时候,我必使一个人从便雅悯地到你这里来,你要膏他作我民以色列的君。他必救我民脱离非利士人的手。因我民的哀声上达于我,我就眷顾他们。

To morrow about this time I will send thee a man out of the land of Benjamin, and thou shalt anoint him to be captain over my people Israel, that he may save my people out of the hand of the Philistines: for I have looked upon my people, because their cry is come unto me.

9:17 撒母耳看见扫罗的时候,耶和华对他说,看哪,这人就是我对你所说的,他必治理我的民。

And when Samuel saw Saul, the LORD said unto him, Behold the man whom I spake to thee of! this same shall reign over my people.

9:18 扫罗在城门里走到撒母耳跟前,说,请告诉我,先见的寓所在哪里。

Then Saul drew near to Samuel in the gate, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, where the seer's house is.

9:19 撒母耳回答说,我就是先见。你在我前面上邱坛去,因为你们今日必与我同席。明日早晨我送你去,将你心里的事都告诉你。

And Samuel answered Saul, and said, I am the seer: go up before me unto the high place; for ye shall eat with me to day, and to morrow I will let thee go, and will tell thee all that is in thine heart.

9:20 至于你前三日所丢的那几头驴,你心里不必挂念,已经找着了。以色列众人所仰慕的是谁呢。不是仰慕你和你父的全家吗。

And as for thine asses that were lost three days ago, set not thy mind on them; for they are found. And on whom is all the desire of Israel? Is it not on thee, and on all thy father's house?

9:21 扫罗说,我不是以色列支派中至小的便雅悯人吗。我家不是便雅悯支派中至小的家吗。你为何对我说这样的话呢。

And Saul answered and said, Am not I a Benjamite, of the smallest of the tribes of Israel? and my family the least of all the families of the tribe of Benjamin? wherefore then speakest thou so to me?

9:22 撒母耳领扫罗和他仆人进了客堂,使他们在请来的客中坐首位。客约有三十个人。

And Samuel took Saul and his servant, and brought them into the parlour, and made them sit in the chiefest place among them that were bidden, which were about thirty persons.

9:23 撒母耳对厨役说,我交给你收存的那一分祭肉现在可以拿来。

And Samuel said unto the cook, Bring the portion which I gave thee, of which I said unto thee, Set it by thee.

9:24 厨役就把收存的腿拿来,摆在扫罗面前,撒母耳说,这是所留下的,放在你面前。吃吧。因我请百姓的时候,特意为你存留这肉到此时。当日,扫罗就与撒母耳同席。

And the cook took up the shoulder, and that which was upon it, and set it before Saul. And Samuel said, Behold that which is left! set it before thee, and eat: for unto this time hath it been kept for thee since I said, I have invited the people. So Saul did eat with Samuel that day.

9:25 众人从邱坛下来进城,撒母耳和扫罗在房顶上说话。

And when they were come down from the high place into the city, Samuel communed with Saul upon the top of the house.

9:26 次日清早起来,黎明的时候,扫罗在房顶上。撒母耳呼叫他说,起来吧,我好送你回去。扫罗就起来,和撒母耳一同出去。

And they arose early: and it came to pass about the spring of the day, that Samuel called Saul to the top of the house, saying, Up, that I may send thee away. And Saul arose, and they went out both of them, he and Samuel, abroad.

9:27 二人下到城角,撒母耳对扫罗说,要吩咐仆人先走(仆人就先走了)。你且站在这里,等我将神的话传与你听。

And as they were going down to the end of the city, Samuel said to Saul, Bid the servant pass on before us, (and he passed on), but stand thou still a while, that I may shew thee the word of God.
