旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第28 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

28:1 以撒叫了雅各来,给他祝福,并嘱咐他说,你不要娶迦南的女子为妻。

And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.

28:2 你起身往巴旦亚兰去,到你外祖彼土利家里,在你母舅拉班的女儿中娶一女为妻。

Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother's father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of Laban thy mother's brother.

28:3 愿全能的神赐福给你,使你生养众多,成为多族,

And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people;

28:4 将应许亚伯拉罕的福赐给你和你的后裔,使你承受你所寄居的地为业,就是神赐给亚伯拉罕的地。

And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham.

28:5 以撒打发雅各走了,他就往巴旦亚兰去,到亚兰人彼土利的儿子拉班那里。拉班是雅各,以扫的母舅。

And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padanaram unto Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob's and Esau's mother.

28:6 以扫见以撒已经给雅各祝福,而且打发他往巴旦亚兰去,在那里娶妻,并见祝福的时候嘱咐他说,不要娶迦南的女子为妻,

When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Padanaram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he blessed him he gave him a charge, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan;

28:7 又见雅各听从父母的话往巴旦亚兰去了,

And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone to Padanaram;

28:8 以扫就晓得他父亲以撒看不中迦南的女子,

And Esau seeing that the daughters of Canaan pleased not Isaac his father;

28:9 便往以实玛利那里去,在他二妻之外又娶了玛哈拉为妻。他是亚伯拉罕儿子以实玛利的女儿,尼拜约的妹子。

Then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives which he had Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son, the sister of Nebajoth, to be his wife.

28:10 雅各出了别是巴,向哈兰走去。

And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.

28:11 到了一个地方,因为太阳落了,就在那里住宿,便拾起那地方的一块石头枕在头下,在那里躺卧睡了,

And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.

28:12 梦见一个梯子立在地上,梯子的头顶着天,有神的使者在梯子上,上去下来。

And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.

28:13 耶和华站在梯子以上(或作站在他旁边),说,我是耶和华你祖亚伯拉罕的神,也是以撒的神。我要将你现在所躺卧之地赐给你和你的后裔。

And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;

28:14 你的后裔必像地上的尘沙那样多,必向东西南北开展。地上万族必因你和你的后裔得福。

And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

28:15 我也与你同在。你无论往哪里去,我必保佑你,领你归回这地,总不离弃你,直到我成全了向你所应许的。

And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.

28:16 雅各睡醒了,说,耶和华真在这里,我竟不知道。

And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.

28:17 就惧怕,说,这地方何等可畏,这不是别的,乃是神的殿,也是天的门。

And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.

28:18 雅各清早起来,把所枕的石头立作柱子,浇油在上面。

And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it.

28:19 他就给那地方起名叫伯特利(就是神殿的意思)。但那地方起先名叫路斯。

And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first.

28:20 雅各许愿说,神若与我同在,在我所行的路上保佑我,又给我食物吃,衣服穿,

And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on,

28:21 使我平平安安地回到我父亲的家,我就必以耶和华为我的神。

So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God:

28:22 我所立为柱子的石头也必作神的殿,凡你所赐给我的,我必将十分之一献给你。

And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第29 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

29:1 雅各起行,到了东方人之地,

Then Jacob went on his journey, and came into the land of the people of the east.

29:2 看见田间有一口井,有三群羊卧在井旁。因为人饮羊群都是用那井里的水。井口上的石头是大的。

And he looked, and behold a well in the field, and, lo, there were three flocks of sheep lying by it; for out of that well they watered the flocks: and a great stone was upon the well's mouth.

29:3 常有羊群在那里聚集,牧人把石头转离井口饮羊,随后又把石头放在井口的原处。

And thither were all the flocks gathered: and they rolled the stone from the well's mouth, and watered the sheep, and put the stone again upon the well's mouth in his place.

29:4 雅各对牧人说,弟兄们,你们是哪里来的,他们说,我们是哈兰来的。

And Jacob said unto them, My brethren, whence be ye? And they said, Of Haran are we.

29:5 他问他们说,拿鹤的孙子拉班,你们认识吗。他们说,我们认识。

And he said unto them, Know ye Laban the son of Nahor? And they said, We know him.

29:6 雅各说,他平安吗。他们说,平安。看哪,他女儿拉结领着羊来了。

And he said unto them, Is he well? And they said, He is well: and, behold, Rachel his daughter cometh with the sheep.

29:7 雅各说,日头还高,不是羊群聚集的时候,你们不如饮羊,再去放一放。

And he said, Lo, it is yet high day, neither is it time that the cattle should be gathered together: water ye the sheep, and go and feed them.

29:8 他们说,我们不能,必等羊群聚齐,人把石头转离井口才可饮羊。

And they said, We cannot, until all the flocks be gathered together, and till they roll the stone from the well's mouth; then we water the sheep.

29:9 雅各正和他们说话的时候,拉结领着她父亲的羊来了,因为那些羊是她牧放的。

And while he yet spake with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep: for she kept them.

29:10 雅各看见母舅拉班的女儿拉结和母舅拉班的羊群,就上前把石头转离井口,饮他母舅拉班的羊群。

And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban his mother's brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother's brother, that Jacob went near, and rolled the stone from the well's mouth, and watered the flock of Laban his mother's brother.

29:11 雅各与拉结亲嘴,就放声而哭。

And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept.

29:12 雅各告诉拉结,自己是她父亲的外甥,是利百加的儿子,拉结就跑去告诉她父亲。

And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's brother, and that he was Rebekah's son: and she ran and told her father.

29:13 拉班听见外甥雅各的信息,就跑去迎接,抱着他,与他亲嘴,领他到自己的家。雅各将一切的情由告诉拉班。

And it came to pass, when Laban heard the tidings of Jacob his sister's son, that he ran to meet him, and embraced him, and kissed him, and brought him to his house. And he told Laban all these things.

29:14 拉班对他说,你实在是我的骨肉。雅各就和他同住了一个月。

And Laban said to him, Surely thou art my bone and my flesh. And he abode with him the space of a month.

29:15 拉班对雅各说,你虽是我的骨肉(原文作弟兄),岂可白白地服事我。请告诉我,你要什么为工价。

And Laban said unto Jacob, Because thou art my brother, shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? tell me, what shall thy wages be?

29:16 拉班有两个女儿,大的名叫利亚,小的名叫拉结。

And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.

29:17 利亚的眼睛没有神气,拉结却生得美貌俊秀。

Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well favoured.

29:18 雅各爱拉结,就说,我愿为你小女儿拉结服事你七年。

And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter.

29:19 拉班说,我把她给你,胜似给别人,你与我同住吧。

And Laban said, It is better that I give her to thee, than that I should give her to another man: abide with me.

29:20 雅各就为拉结服事了七年。他因为深爱拉结,就看这七年如同几天。

And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.

29:21 雅各对拉班说,日期已经满了,求你把我的妻子给我,我好与她同房。

And Jacob said unto Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in unto her.

29:22 拉班就摆设筵席,请齐了那地方的众人。

And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast.

29:23 到晚上,拉班将女儿利亚送来给雅各,雅各就与她同房。

And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter, and brought her to him; and he went in unto her.

29:24 拉班又将婢女悉帕给女儿利亚作使女。

And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah Zilpah his maid for an handmaid.

29:25 到了早晨,雅各一看是利亚,就对拉班说,你向我作的是什么事呢。我服事你,不是为拉结吗,你为什么欺哄我呢。

And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?

29:26 拉班说,大女儿还没有给人,先把小女儿给人,在我们这地方没有这规矩。

And Laban said, It must not be so done in our country, to give the younger before the firstborn.

29:27 你为这个满了七日,我就把那个也给你,你再为她服事我七年。

Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.

29:28 雅各就如此行。满了利亚的七日,拉班便将女儿拉结给雅各为妻。

And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife also.

29:29 拉班又将婢女辟拉给女儿拉结作使女。

And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid to be her maid.

29:30 雅各也与拉结同房,并且爱拉结胜似爱利亚,于是又服事了拉班七年。

And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.

29:31 耶和华见利亚失宠(原文作被恨下同),就使她生育,拉结却不生育。

And when the LORD saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.

29:32 利亚怀孕生子,就给他起名叫流便(就是有儿子的意思),因而说,耶和华看见我的苦情,如今我的丈夫必爱我。

And Leah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name Reuben: for she said, Surely the LORD hath looked upon my affliction; now therefore my husband will love me.

29:33 她又怀孕生子,就说,耶和华因为听见我失宠,所以又赐给我这个儿子。于是给他起名叫西缅(就是听见的意思)。

And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Because the LORD hath heard that I was hated, he hath therefore given me this son also: and she called his name Simeon.

29:34 她又怀孕生子,起名叫利未(就是联合的意思),说,我给丈夫生了三个儿子,他必与我联合。

And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now this time will my husband be joined unto me, because I have born him three sons: therefore was his name called Levi.

29:35 她又怀孕生子,说,这回我要赞美耶和华,因此给他起名叫犹大(就是赞美的意思)。这才停了生育。

And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the LORD: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第30 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

30:1 拉结见自己不给雅各生子,就嫉妒她姊姊,对雅各说,你给我孩子,不然我就死了。

And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister; and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I die.

30:2 雅各向拉结生气,说,叫你不生育的是神,我岂能代替他作主呢。

And Jacob's anger was kindled against Rachel: and he said, Am I in God's stead, who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?

30:3 拉结说,有我的使女辟拉在这里,你可以与她同房,使她生子在我膝下,我便因她也得孩子(原文作被建立)。

And she said, Behold my maid Bilhah, go in unto her; and she shall bear upon my knees, that I may also have children by her.

30:4 拉结就把她的使女辟拉给丈夫为妾。雅各便与她同房,

And she gave him Bilhah her handmaid to wife: and Jacob went in unto her.

30:5 辟拉就怀孕,给雅各生了一个儿子。

And Bilhah conceived, and bare Jacob a son.

30:6 拉结说,神伸了我的冤,也听了我的声音,赐我一个儿子,因此给他起名叫但(就是伸冤的意思)。

And Rachel said, God hath judged me, and hath also heard my voice, and hath given me a son: therefore called she his name Dan.

30:7 拉结的使女辟拉又怀孕,给雅各生了第二个儿子。

And Bilhah Rachel's maid conceived again, and bare Jacob a second son.

30:8 拉结说,我与我姊姊大大相争,并且得胜,于是给他起名叫拿弗他利(就是相争的意思)。

And Rachel said, With great wrestlings have I wrestled with my sister, and I have prevailed: and she called his name Naphtali.

30:9 利亚见自己停了生育,就把使女悉帕给雅各为妾。

When Leah saw that she had left bearing, she took Zilpah her maid, and gave her Jacob to wife.

30:10 利亚的使女悉帕给雅各生了一个儿子。

And Zilpah Leah's maid bare Jacob a son.

30:11 利亚说,万幸,于是给他起名叫迦得(就是万幸的意思)。

And Leah said, A troop cometh: and she called his name Gad.

30:12 利亚的使女悉帕又给雅各生了第二个儿子。

And Zilpah Leah's maid bare Jacob a second son.

30:13 利亚说,我有福阿,众女子都要称我是有福的,于是给他起名叫亚设(就是有福的意思)。

And Leah said, Happy am I, for the daughters will call me blessed: and she called his name Asher.

30:14 割麦子的时候,流便往田里去,寻见风茄,拿来给他母亲利亚。拉结对利亚说,请你把你儿子的风茄给我些。

And Reuben went in the days of wheat harvest, and found mandrakes in the field, and brought them unto his mother Leah. Then Rachel said to Leah, Give me, I pray thee, of thy son's mandrakes.

30:15 利亚说,你夺了我的丈夫还算小事吗,你又要夺我儿子的风茄吗。拉结说,为你儿子的风茄,今夜他可以与你同寝。

And she said unto her, Is it a small matter that thou hast taken my husband? and wouldest thou take away my son's mandrakes also? And Rachel said, Therefore he shall lie with thee to night for thy son's mandrakes.

30:16 到了晚上,雅各从田里回来,利亚出来迎接他,说,你要与我同寝,因为我实在用我儿子的风茄把你雇下了。那一夜,雅各就与她同寝。

And Jacob came out of the field in the evening, and Leah went out to meet him, and said, Thou must come in unto me; for surely I have hired thee with my son's mandrakes. And he lay with her that night.

30:17 神应允了利亚,她就怀孕,给雅各生了第五个儿子。

And God hearkened unto Leah, and she conceived, and bare Jacob the fifth son.

30:18 利亚说,神给了我价值,因为我把使女给了我丈夫。于是给他起名叫以萨迦(就是价值的意思)。

And Leah said, God hath given me my hire, because I have given my maiden to my husband: and she called his name Issachar.

30:19 利亚又怀孕,给雅各生了第六个儿子。

And Leah conceived again, and bare Jacob the sixth son.

30:20 利亚说,神赐我厚赏。我丈夫必与我同住,因我给他生了六个儿子。于是给他起名西布伦(就是同住的意思)。

And Leah said, God hath endued me with a good dowry; now will my husband dwell with me, because I have born him six sons: and she called his name Zebulun.

30:21 后来又生了一个女儿,给她起名叫底拿。

And afterwards she bare a daughter, and called her name Dinah.

30:22 神顾念拉结,应允了她,使她能生育。

And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb.

30:23 拉结怀孕生子,说,神除去了我的羞耻。

And she conceived, and bare a son; and said, God hath taken away my reproach:

30:24 就给他起名叫约瑟(就是增添的意思),意思说,愿耶和华再增添我一个儿子。

And she called his name Joseph; and said, The LORD shall add to me another son.

30:25 拉结生约瑟之后,雅各对拉班说,请打发我走,叫我回到我本乡本土去。

And it came to pass, when Rachel had born Joseph, that Jacob said unto Laban, Send me away, that I may go unto mine own place, and to my country.

30:26 请你把我服事你所得的妻子和儿女给我,让我走。我怎样服事你,你都知道。

Give me my wives and my children, for whom I have served thee, and let me go: for thou knowest my service which I have done thee.

30:27 拉班对他说,我若在你眼前蒙恩,请你仍与我同住,因为我已算定,耶和华赐福与我是为你的缘故。

And Laban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have found favour in thine eyes, tarry: for I have learned by experience that the LORD hath blessed me for thy sake.

30:28 又说,请你定你的工价,我就给你。

And he said, Appoint me thy wages, and I will give it.

30:29 雅各对他说,我怎样服事你,你的牲畜在我手里怎样,是你知道的。

And he said unto him, Thou knowest how I have served thee, and how thy cattle was with me.

30:30 我未来之先,你所有的很少,现今却发大众多,耶和华随我的脚步赐福与你。如今,我什么时候才为自己兴家立业呢。

For it was little which thou hadst before I came, and it is now increased unto a multitude; and the LORD hath blessed thee since my coming: and now when shall I provide for mine own house also?

30:31 拉班说,我当给你什么呢。雅各说,什么你也不必给我,只有一件事,你若应承,我便仍旧牧放你的羊群。

And he said, What shall I give thee? And Jacob said, Thou shalt not give me any thing: if thou wilt do this thing for me, I will again feed and keep thy flock.

30:32 今天我要走遍你的羊群,把绵羊中凡有点的,有斑的,和黑色的,并山羊中凡有斑的,有点的,都挑出来。将来这一等的就算我的工价。

I will pass through all thy flock to day, removing from thence all the speckled and spotted cattle, and all the brown cattle among the sheep, and the spotted and speckled among the goats: and of such shall be my hire.

30:33 以后你来查看我的工价,凡在我手里的山羊不是有点有斑的,绵羊不是黑色的,那就算是我偷的。这样便可证出我的公义来。

So shall my righteousness answer for me in time to come, when it shall come for my hire before thy face: every one that is not speckled and spotted among the goats, and brown among the sheep, that shall be counted stolen with me.

30:34 拉班说,好阿ⅵ我情愿照着你的话行。

And Laban said, Behold, I would it might be according to thy word.

30:35 当日,拉班把有纹的,有斑的公山羊,有点的,有斑的,有杂白纹的母山羊,并黑色的绵羊,都挑出来,交在他儿子们的手下,

And he removed that day the he goats that were ringstraked and spotted, and all the she goats that were speckled and spotted, and every one that had some white in it, and all the brown among the sheep, and gave them into the hand of his sons.

30:36 又使自己和雅各相离三天的路程。雅各就牧养拉班其馀的羊。

And he set three days' journey betwixt himself and Jacob: and Jacob fed the rest of Laban's flocks.

30:37 雅各拿杨树,杏树,枫树的嫩枝,将皮剥成白纹,使枝子露出白的来,

And Jacob took him rods of green poplar, and of the hazel and chestnut tree; and pilled white strakes in them, and made the white appear which was in the rods.

30:38 将剥了皮的枝子,对着羊群,插在饮羊的水沟里和水槽里,羊来喝的时候,牝牡配合。

And he set the rods which he had pilled before the flocks in the gutters in the watering troughs when the flocks came to drink, that they should conceive when they came to drink.

30:39 羊对着枝子配合,就生下有纹的,有点的,有斑的来。

And the flocks conceived before the rods, and brought forth cattle ringstraked, speckled, and spotted.

30:40 雅各把羊羔分出来,使拉班的羊与这有纹和黑色的羊相对,把自己的羊另放一处,不叫他和拉班的羊混杂。

And Jacob did separate the lambs, and set the faces of the flocks toward the ringstraked, and all the brown in the flock of Laban; and he put his own flocks by themselves, and put them not unto Laban's cattle.

30:41 到羊群肥壮配合的时候,雅各就把枝子插在水沟里,使羊对着枝子配合。

And it came to pass, whensoever the stronger cattle did conceive, that Jacob laid the rods before the eyes of the cattle in the gutters, that they might conceive among the rods.

30:42 只是到羊瘦弱配合的时候就不插枝子。这样,瘦弱的就归拉班,肥壮的就归雅各。

But when the cattle were feeble, he put them not in: so the feebler were Laban's, and the stronger Jacob's.

30:43 于是雅各极其发大,得了许多的羊群,仆婢,骆驼,和驴。

And the man increased exceedingly, and had much cattle, and maidservants, and menservants, and camels, and asses.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第31 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

31:1 雅各听见拉班的儿子们有话说,雅各把我们父亲所有的都夺了去,并藉着我们父亲的,得了这一切的荣耀(荣耀或作财)。

And he heard the words of Laban's sons, saying, Jacob hath taken away all that was our father's; and of that which was our father's hath he gotten all this glory.

31:2 雅各见拉班的气色向他不如从前了。

And Jacob beheld the countenance of Laban, and, behold, it was not toward him as before.

31:3 耶和华对雅各说,你要回你祖,你父之地,到你亲族那里去,我必与你同在。

And the LORD said unto Jacob, Return unto the land of thy fathers, and to thy kindred; and I will be with thee.

31:4 雅各就打发人,叫拉结和利亚到田野羊群那里来,

And Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field unto his flock,

31:5 对她们说,我看你们父亲的气色向我不如从前了。但我父亲的神向来与我同在。

And said unto them, I see your father's countenance, that it is not toward me as before; but the God of my father hath been with me.

31:6 你们也知道,我尽了我的力量服事你们的父亲。

And ye know that with all my power I have served your father.

31:7 你们的父亲欺哄我,十次改了我的工价。然而神不容他害我。

And your father hath deceived me, and changed my wages ten times; but God suffered him not to hurt me.

31:8 他若说,有点的归你作工价,羊群所生的都有点。他若说,有纹的归你作工价,羊群所生的都有纹。

If he said thus, The speckled shall be thy wages; then all the cattle bare speckled: and if he said thus, The ringstraked shall be thy hire; then bare all the cattle ringstraked.

31:9 这样,神把你们父亲的牲畜夺来赐给我了。

Thus God hath taken away the cattle of your father, and given them to me.

31:10 羊配合的时候,我梦中举目铱看,见跳母羊的公羊都是有纹的,有点的,有花斑的。

And it came to pass at the time that the cattle conceived, that I lifted up mine eyes, and saw in a dream, and, behold, the rams which leaped upon the cattle were ringstraked, speckled, and grisled.

31:11 神的使者在那梦中呼叫我说,雅各,我说,我在这里。

And the angel of God spake unto me in a dream, saying, Jacob: And I said, Here am I.

31:12 他说,你举目观看,跳母羊的公羊都是有纹的,有点的,有花斑的。凡拉班向你所作的,我都看见了。

And he said, Lift up now thine eyes, and see, all the rams which leap upon the cattle are ringstraked, speckled, and grisled: for I have seen all that Laban doeth unto thee.

31:13 我是伯特利的神。你在那里用油浇过柱子,向我许过愿。现今你起来,离开这地,回你本地去吧。

I am the God of Bethel, where thou anointedst the pillar, and where thou vowedst a vow unto me: now arise, get thee out from this land, and return unto the land of thy kindred.

31:14 拉结和利亚回答雅各说,在我们父亲的家里还有我们可得的分吗,还有我们的产业吗。

And Rachel and Leah answered and said unto him, Is there yet any portion or inheritance for us in our father's house?

31:15 我们不是被他当作外人吗。因为他卖了我们,吞了我们的价值。

Are we not counted of him strangers? for he hath sold us, and hath quite devoured also our money.

31:16 神从我们父亲所夺出来的一切财物,那就是我们和我们孩子们的。现今凡神所吩咐你的,你只管去行吧。

For all the riches which God hath taken from our father, that is ours, and our children's: now then, whatsoever God hath said unto thee, do.

31:17 雅各起来,使他的儿子和妻子都骑上骆驼,

Then Jacob rose up, and set his sons and his wives upon camels;

31:18 又带着他在巴旦亚兰所得的一切牲畜和财物,往迦南地,他父亲以撒那里去了。

And he carried away all his cattle, and all his goods which he had gotten, the cattle of his getting, which he had gotten in Padanaram, for to go to Isaac his father in the land of Canaan.

31:19 当时拉班剪羊毛去了,拉结偷了他父亲家中的神像。

And Laban went to shear his sheep: and Rachel had stolen the images that were her father's.

31:20 雅各背着亚兰人拉班偷走了,并不告诉他,

And Jacob stole away unawares to Laban the Syrian, in that he told him not that he fled.

31:21 就带着所有的逃跑。他起身过大河,面向基列山行去。

So he fled with all that he had; and he rose up, and passed over the river, and set his face toward the mount Gilead.

31:22 到第三日,有人告诉拉班,雅各逃跑了。

And it was told Laban on the third day that Jacob was fled.

31:23 拉班带领他的众弟兄去追赶,追了七日,在基列山就追上了。

And he took his brethren with him, and pursued after him seven days' journey; and they overtook him in the mount Gilead.

31:24 夜间,神到亚兰人拉班那里,在梦中对他说,你要小心,不可与雅各说好说歹。

And God came to Laban the Syrian in a dream by night, and said unto him, Take heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad.

31:25 拉班追上雅各。雅各在山上支搭帐棚。拉班和他的众弟兄也在基列山上支搭帐棚。

Then Laban overtook Jacob. Now Jacob had pitched his tent in the mount: and Laban with his brethren pitched in the mount of Gilead.

31:26 拉班对雅各说,你作的是什么事呢,你背着我偷走了,又把我的女儿们带了去,如同用刀剑掳去的一般。

And Laban said to Jacob, What hast thou done, that thou hast stolen away unawares to me, and carried away my daughters, as captives taken with the sword?

31:27 你为什么暗暗地逃跑,偷着走,并不告诉我,叫我可以欢乐,唱歌,击鼓,弹琴地送你回去。

Wherefore didst thou flee away secretly, and steal away from me; and didst not tell me, that I might have sent thee away with mirth, and with songs, with tabret, and with harp?

31:28 又不容我与外孙和女儿亲嘴。你所行的真是愚昧。

And hast not suffered me to kiss my sons and my daughters? thou hast now done foolishly in so doing.

31:29 我手中原有能力害你,只是你父亲的神昨夜对我说,你要小心,不可与雅各说好说歹。

It is in the power of my hand to do you hurt: but the God of your father spake unto me yesternight, saying, Take thou heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad.

31:30 现在你虽然想你父家,不得不去,为什么又偷了我的神像呢。

And now, though thou wouldest needs be gone, because thou sore longedst after thy father's house, yet wherefore hast thou stolen my gods?

31:31 雅各回答拉班说,恐怕你把你的女儿从我夺去,所以我逃跑。

And Jacob answered and said to Laban, Because I was afraid: for I said, Peradventure thou wouldest take by force thy daughters from me.

31:32 至于你的神像,你在谁那里搜出来,就不容谁存活。当着我们的众弟兄,你认一认,在我这里有什么东西是你的,就拿去。原来雅各不知道拉结偷了那些神像。

With whomsoever thou findest thy gods, let him not live: before our brethren discern thou what is thine with me, and take it to thee. For Jacob knew not that Rachel had stolen them.

31:33 拉班进了雅各,利亚,并两个使女的帐棚,都没有搜出来,就从利亚的帐棚出来,进了拉结的帐棚。

And Laban went into Jacob's tent, and into Leah's tent, and into the two maidservants' tents; but he found them not. Then went he out of Leah's tent, and entered into Rachel's tent.

31:34 拉结已经把神像藏在骆驼的驮篓里,便坐在上头。拉班摸遍了那帐棚,并没有摸着

Now Rachel had taken the images, and put them in the camel's furniture, and sat upon them. And Laban searched all the tent, but found them not.

31:35 拉结对她父亲说,现在我身上不便,不能在你面前起来,求我主不要生气。这样,拉班搜寻神像,竟没有搜出来。

And she said to her father, Let it not displease my lord that I cannot rise up before thee; for the custom of women is upon me. And he searched, but found not the images.

31:36 雅各就发怒斥责拉班说,我有什么过犯,有什么罪恶,你竟这样火速地追我。

And Jacob was wroth, and chode with Laban: and Jacob answered and said to Laban, What is my trespass? what is my sin, that thou hast so hotly pursued after me?

31:37 你摸遍了我一切的家具,你搜出什么来呢。可以放在你我弟兄面前,叫他们在你我中间辨别辨别。

Whereas thou hast searched all my stuff, what hast thou found of all thy household stuff? set it here before my brethren and thy brethren, that they may judge betwixt us both.

31:38 我在你家这二十年,你的母绵羊,母山羊没有掉过胎。你群中的公羊,我没有吃过。

This twenty years have I been with thee; thy ewes and thy she goats have not cast their young, and the rams of thy flock have I not eaten.

31:39 被野兽撕裂的,我没有带来给你,是我自己赔上。无论是白日,是黑夜,被偷去的,你都向我索要。

That which was torn of beasts I brought not unto thee; I bare the loss of it; of my hand didst thou require it, whether stolen by day, or stolen by night.

31:40 我白日受尽乾热,黑夜受尽寒霜,不得合眼睡着,我常是这样。

Thus I was; in the day the drought consumed me, and the frost by night; and my sleep departed from mine eyes.

31:41 我这二十年在你家里,为你的两个女儿服事你十四年,为你的羊群服事你六年,你又十次改了我的工价。

Thus have I been twenty years in thy house; I served thee fourteen years for thy two daughters, and six years for thy cattle: and thou hast changed my wages ten times.

31:42 若不是我父亲以撒所敬畏的神,就是亚伯拉罕的神与我同在,你如今必定打发我空手而去。神看见我的苦情和我的劳碌,就在昨夜责备你。

Except the God of my father, the God of Abraham, and the fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away now empty. God hath seen mine affliction and the labour of my hands, and rebuked thee yesternight.

31:43 拉班回答雅各说,这女儿是我的女儿,这些孩子是我的孩子,这些羊群也是我的羊群。凡在你眼前的都是我的。我的女儿并她们所生的孩子,我今日能向他们作什么呢?

And Laban answered and said unto Jacob, These daughters are my daughters, and these children are my children, and these cattle are my cattle, and all that thou seest is mine: and what can I do this day unto these my daughters, or unto their children which they have born?

31:44 来吧,你我二人可以立约,作你我中间的证据。

Now therefore come thou, let us make a covenant, I and thou; and let it be for a witness between me and thee.

31:45 雅各就拿一块石头立作柱子,

And Jacob took a stone, and set it up for a pillar.

31:46 又对众弟兄说,你们堆聚石头。他们就拿石头来堆成一堆,大家便在旁边吃喝。

And Jacob said unto his brethren, Gather stones; and they took stones, and made an heap: and they did eat there upon the heap.

31:47 拉班称那石堆为伊迦尔撒哈杜他,雅各却称那石堆为迦累得(都是以石堆为证的意思)。

And Laban called it Jegarsahadutha: but Jacob called it Galeed.

31:48 拉班说,今日这石堆作你我中间的证据。因此这地方名叫迦累得,

And Laban said, This heap is a witness between me and thee this day. Therefore was the name of it called Galeed;

31:49 又叫米斯巴,意思说,我们彼此离别以后,愿耶和华在你我中间鉴察。

And Mizpah; for he said, The LORD watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another.

31:50 你若苦待我的女儿,又在我的女儿以外另娶妻,虽没有人知道,却有神在你我中间作见证。

If thou shalt afflict my daughters, or if thou shalt take other wives beside my daughters, no man is with us; see, God is witness betwixt me and thee.

31:51 拉班又说,你看我在你我中间所立的这石堆和柱子。

And Laban said to Jacob, Behold this heap, and behold this pillar, which I have cast betwixt me and thee:

31:52 这石堆作证据,这柱子也作证据。我必不过这石堆去害你。你也不可过这石堆和柱子来害我。

This heap be witness, and this pillar be witness, that I will not pass over this heap to thee, and that thou shalt not pass over this heap and this pillar unto me, for harm.

31:53 但愿亚伯拉罕的神和拿鹤的神,就是他们父亲的神,在你我中间判断。雅各就指着他父亲以撒所敬畏的神起誓,

The God of Abraham, and the God of Nahor, the God of their father, judge betwixt us. And Jacob sware by the fear of his father Isaac.

31:54 又在山上献祭,请众弟兄来吃饭。他们吃了饭,便在山上住宿。

Then Jacob offered sacrifice upon the mount, and called his brethren to eat bread: and they did eat bread, and tarried all night in the mount.

31:55 拉班清早起来,与他外孙和女儿亲嘴,给他们祝福,回往自己的地方去了。

And early in the morning Laban rose up, and kissed his sons and his daughters, and blessed them: and Laban departed, and returned unto his place.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第32 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

32:1 雅各仍旧行路,神的使者遇见他。

And Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him.

32:2 雅各看见他们就说,这是神的军兵,于是给那地方起名叫玛哈念(就是二军兵的意思)。

And when Jacob saw them, he said, This is God's host: and he called the name of that place Mahanaim.

32:3 雅各打发人先往西珥地去,就是以东地,见他哥哥以扫,

And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother unto the land of Seir, the country of Edom.

32:4 吩咐他们说,你们对我主以扫说,你的仆人雅各这样说,我在拉班那里寄居,直到如今。

And he commanded them, saying, Thus shall ye speak unto my lord Esau; Thy servant Jacob saith thus, I have sojourned with Laban, and stayed there until now:

32:5 我有牛,驴,羊群,仆婢,现在打发人来报告我主,为要在你眼前蒙恩。

And I have oxen, and asses, flocks, and menservants, and womenservants: and I have sent to tell my lord, that I may find grace in thy sight.

32:6 所打发的人回到雅各那里,说,我们到了你哥哥以扫那里,他带着四百人,正迎着你来。

And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, We came to thy brother Esau, and also he cometh to meet thee, and four hundred men with him.

32:7 雅各就甚惧怕,而且愁烦,便把那与他同在的人口和羊群,牛群,骆驼分作两队,

Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed: and he divided the people that was with him, and the flocks, and herds, and the camels, into two bands;

32:8 说,以扫若来击杀这一队,剩下的那一队还可以逃避。

And said, If Esau come to the one company, and smite it, then the other company which is left shall escape.

32:9 雅各说,耶和华我祖亚伯拉罕的神,我父亲以撒的神阿,你曾对我说,回你本地本族去,我要厚待你。

And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham, and God of my father Isaac, the LORD which saidst unto me, Return unto thy country, and to thy kindred, and I will deal well with thee:

32:10 你向仆人所施的一切慈爱和诚实,我一点也不配得。我先前只拿着我的杖过这约旦河,如今我却成了两队了。

I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which thou hast shewed unto thy servant; for with my staff I passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands.

32:11 求你救我脱离我哥哥以扫的手。因为我怕他来杀我,连妻子带儿女一同杀了。

Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, and the mother with the children.

32:12 你曾说,我必定厚待你,使你的后裔如同海边的沙,多得不可胜数。

And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good, and make thy seed as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.

32:13 当夜,雅各在那里住宿,就从他所有的物中拿礼物要送给他哥哥以扫。

And he lodged there that same night; and took of that which came to his hand a present for Esau his brother;

32:14 母山羊二百只,公山羊二十只,母绵羊二百只,公绵羊二十只,

Two hundred she goats, and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes, and twenty rams,

32:15 奶崽子的骆驼三十只各带着崽子,母牛四十只,公牛十只,母驴二十匹,驴驹十匹。

Thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine, and ten bulls, twenty she asses, and ten foals.

32:16 每样各分一群,交在仆人手下,就对仆人说,你们要在我前头过去,使群群相离,有空闲的地方。

And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by themselves; and said unto his servants, Pass over before me, and put a space betwixt drove and drove.

32:17 又吩咐尽先走的说,我哥哥以扫遇见你的时候,问你说,你是哪家的人,要往哪里去,你前头这些是谁的,

And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother meeteth thee, and asketh thee, saying, Whose art thou? and whither goest thou? and whose are these before thee?

32:18 你就说,是你仆人雅各的,是送给我主以扫的礼物。他自己也在我们后边。

Then thou shalt say, They be thy servant Jacob's; it is a present sent unto my lord Esau: and, behold, also he is behind us.

32:19 又吩咐第二,第三,和一切赶群畜的人说,你们遇见以扫的时候也要这样对他说。

And so commanded he the second, and the third, and all that followed the droves, saying, On this manner shall ye speak unto Esau, when ye find him.

32:20 并且你们要说,你仆人雅各在我们后边。因雅各心里说,我藉着在我前头去的礼物解他的恨,然后再见他的面,或者他容纳我。

And say ye moreover, Behold, thy servant Jacob is behind us. For he said, I will appease him with the present that goeth before me, and afterward I will see his face; peradventure he will accept of me.

32:21 于是礼物先过去了。那夜,雅各在队中住宿。

So went the present over before him: and himself lodged that night in the company.

32:22 他夜间起来,带着两个妻子,两个使女,并十一个儿子,都过了雅博渡口,

And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two womenservants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford Jabbok.

32:23 先打发他们过河,又打发所有的都过去,

And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over that he had.

32:24 只剩下雅各一人。有一个人来和他摔跤,直到黎明。

And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.

32:25 那人见自己胜不过他,就将他的大腿窝摸了一把,雅各的大腿窝正在摔跤的时候就扭了。

And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.

32:26 那人说,天黎明了,容我去吧。雅各说,你不给我祝福,我就不容你去。

And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.

32:27 那人说,你名叫什么,他说,我名叫雅各。

And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.

32:28 那人说,你的名不要再叫雅各,要叫以色列。因为你与神与人较力,都得了胜。

And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.

32:29 雅各问他说,请将你的名告诉我。那人说,何必问我的名,于是在那里给雅各祝福。

And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there.

32:30 雅各便给那地方起名叫毗努伊勒(就是神之面的意思),意思说,我面对面见了神,我的性命仍得保全。

And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.

32:31 日头刚出来的时候,雅各经过毗努伊勒,他的大腿就瘸了。

And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him, and he halted upon his thigh.

32:32 故此,以色列人不吃大腿窝的筋,直到今日,因为那人摸了雅各大腿窝的筋。

Therefore the children of Israel eat not of the sinew which shrank, which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day: because he touched the hollow of Jacob's thigh in the sinew that shrank.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第33 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

33:1 雅各举目观看,见以扫来了,后头跟着四百人,他就把孩子们分开交给利亚,拉结,和两个使女,

And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau came, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two handmaids.

33:2 并且叫两个使女和她们的孩子在前头,利亚和她的孩子在后头,拉结和约瑟在尽后头。

And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost.

33:3 他自己在他们前头过去,一连七次俯伏在地才就近他哥哥。

And he passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother.

33:4 以扫跑来迎接他,将他抱住,又搂着他的颈项,与他亲嘴,两个人就哭了。

And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept.

33:5 以扫举目看见妇人孩子,就说,这些和你同行的是谁呢,雅各说,这些孩子是神施恩给你的仆人的。

And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, Who are those with thee? And he said, The children which God hath graciously given thy servant.

33:6 于是两个使女和她们的孩子前来下拜。

Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children, and they bowed themselves.

33:7 利亚和她的孩子也前来下拜。随后约瑟和拉结也前来下拜。

And Leah also with her children came near, and bowed themselves: and after came Joseph near and Rachel, and they bowed themselves.

33:8 以扫说,我所遇见的这些群畜是什么意思呢,雅各说,是要在我主面前蒙恩的。

And he said, What meanest thou by all this drove which I met? And he said, These are to find grace in the sight of my lord.

33:9 以扫说,兄弟阿,我的已经够了,你的仍归你吧。

And Esau said, I have enough, my brother; keep that thou hast unto thyself.

33:10 雅各说,不然,我若在你眼前蒙恩,就求你从我手里收下这礼物。因为我见了你的面,如同见了神的面,并且你容纳了我。

And Jacob said, Nay, I pray thee, if now I have found grace in thy sight, then receive my present at my hand: for therefore I have seen thy face, as though I had seen the face of God, and thou wast pleased with me.

33:11 求你收下我带来给你的礼物。因为神恩待我,使我充足。雅各再三地求他,他才收下了。

Take, I pray thee, my blessing that is brought to thee; because God hath dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough. And he urged him, and he took it.

33:12 以扫说,我们可以起身前往,我在你前头走。

And he said, Let us take our journey, and let us go, and I will go before thee.

33:13 雅各对他说,我主知道孩子们年幼娇嫩,牛羊也正在乳养的时候,若是催赶一天,群畜都必死了。

And he said unto him, My lord knoweth that the children are tender, and the flocks and herds with young are with me: and if men should overdrive them one day, all the flock will die.

33:14 求我主在仆人前头走,我要量着在我面前群畜和孩子的力量慢慢地前行,直走到西珥我主那里。

Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over before his servant: and I will lead on softly, according as the cattle that goeth before me and the children be able to endure, until I come unto my lord unto Seir.

33:15 以扫说,容我把跟随我的人留几个在你这里。雅各说,何必呢,只要在我主眼前蒙恩就是了。

And Esau said, Let me now leave with thee some of the folk that are with me. And he said, What needeth it? let me find grace in the sight of my lord.

33:16 于是,以扫当日起行,回往西珥去了。

So Esau returned that day on his way unto Seir.

33:17 雅各就往疏割去,在那里为自己盖造房屋,又为牲畜搭棚。因此那地方名叫疏割(就是棚的意思)。

And Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built him an house, and made booths for his cattle: therefore the name of the place is called Succoth.

33:18 雅各从巴旦亚兰回来的时候,平平安安地到了迦南地的示剑城,在城东支搭帐棚,

And Jacob came to Shalem, a city of Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan, when he came from Padanaram; and pitched his tent before the city.

33:19 就用一百块银子向示剑的父亲,哈抹的子孙买了支帐棚的那块地,

And he bought a parcel of a field, where he had spread his tent, at the hand of the children of Hamor, Shechem's father, for an hundred pieces of money.

33:20 在那里筑了一座坛,起名叫伊利伊罗伊以色列(就是神,以色列神的意思)。

And he erected there an altar, and called it EleloheIsrael.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第34 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

34:1 利亚给雅各所生的女儿底拿出去,要见那地的女子们。

And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land.

34:2 那地的主希未人,哈抹的儿子示剑看见她,就拉住她,与她行淫,玷辱她。

And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her.

34:3 示剑的心系恋雅各的女儿底拿,喜爱这女子,甜言蜜语地安慰她。

And his soul clave unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spake kindly unto the damsel.

34:4 示剑对他父亲哈抹说,求你为我聘这女子为妻。

And Shechem spake unto his father Hamor, saying, Get me this damsel to wife.

34:5 雅各听见示剑玷污了他的女儿底拿。那时他的儿子们正和群畜在田野,雅各就闭口不言,等他们回来。

And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter: now his sons were with his cattle in the field: and Jacob held his peace until they were come.

34:6 示剑的父亲哈抹出来见雅各,要和他商议。

And Hamor the father of Shechem went out unto Jacob to commune with him.

34:7 雅各的儿子们听见这事,就从田野回来,人人忿恨,十分恼怒。因示剑在以色列家作了丑事,与雅各的女儿行淫,这本是不该作的事。

And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard it: and the men were grieved, and they were very wroth, because he had wrought folly in Israel in lying with Jacob's daughter; which thing ought not to be done.

34:8 哈抹和他们商议说,我儿子示剑的心恋慕这女子,求你们将她给我的儿子为妻。

And Hamor communed with them, saying, The soul of my son Shechem longeth for your daughter: I pray you give her him to wife.

34:9 你们与我们彼此结亲。你们可以把女儿给我们,也可以娶我们的女儿。

And make ye marriages with us, and give your daughters unto us, and take our daughters unto you.

34:10 你们与我们同住吧。这地都在你们面前,只管在此居住,作买卖,置产业。

And ye shall dwell with us: and the land shall be before you; dwell and trade ye therein, and get you possessions therein.

34:11 示剑对女儿的父亲和弟兄们说,但愿我在你们眼前蒙恩,你们向我要什么,我必给你们。

And Shechem said unto her father and unto her brethren, Let me find grace in your eyes, and what ye shall say unto me I will give.

34:12 任凭向我要多重的聘金和礼物,我必照你们所说的给你们。只要把女子给我为妻。

Ask me never so much dowry and gift, and I will give according as ye shall say unto me: but give me the damsel to wife.

34:13 雅各的儿子们因为示剑玷污了他们的妹子底拿,就用诡诈的话回答示剑和他父亲哈抹,

And the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and Hamor his father deceitfully, and said, because he had defiled Dinah their sister:

34:14 对他们说,我们不能把我们的妹子给没有受割礼的人为妻,因为那是我们的羞辱。

And they said unto them, We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to one that is uncircumcised; for that were a reproach unto us:

34:15 惟有一件才可以应允,若你们所有的男丁都受割礼,和我们一样,

But in this will we consent unto you: If ye will be as we be, that every male of you be circumcised;

34:16 我们就把女儿给你们,也娶你们的女儿。我们便与你们同住,两下成为一样的人民。

Then will we give our daughters unto you, and we will take your daughters to us, and we will dwell with you, and we will become one people.

34:17 倘若你们不听从我们受割礼,我们就带着妹子走了。

But if ye will not hearken unto us, to be circumcised; then will we take our daughter, and we will be gone.

34:18 哈抹和他的儿子示剑喜欢这话。

And their words pleased Hamor, and Shechem Hamor's son.

34:19 那少年人作这事并不迟延,因为他喜爱雅各的女儿。他在他父亲家中也是人最尊重的。

And the young man deferred not to do the thing, because he had delight in Jacob's daughter: and he was more honourable than all the house of his father.

34:20 哈抹和他儿子示剑到本城的门口,对本城的人说,

And Hamor and Shechem his son came unto the gate of their city, and communed with the men of their city, saying,

34:21 这些人与我们和睦,不如许他们在这地居住,作买卖。这地也宽阔,足可容下他们。我们可以娶他们的女儿为妻,也可以把我们的女儿嫁给他们。

These men are peaceable with us; therefore let them dwell in the land, and trade therein; for the land, behold, it is large enough for them; let us take their daughters to us for wives, and let us give them our daughters.

34:22 惟有一件事我们必须作,他们才肯应允和我们同住,成为一样的人民,就是我们中间所有的男丁都要受割礼,和他们一样。

Only herein will the men consent unto us for to dwell with us, to be one people, if every male among us be circumcised, as they are circumcised.

34:23 他们的群畜,货财,和一切的牲口岂不都归我们吗。只要依从他们,他们就与我们同住。

Shall not their cattle and their substance and every beast of theirs be ours? only let us consent unto them, and they will dwell with us.

34:24 凡从城门出入的人就都听从哈抹和他儿子示剑的话。于是凡从城门出入的男丁都受了割礼。

And unto Hamor and unto Shechem his son hearkened all that went out of the gate of his city; and every male was circumcised, all that went out of the gate of his city.

34:25 到第三天,众人正在疼痛的时候,雅各的两个儿子,就是底拿的哥哥西缅和利未,各拿刀剑,趁着众人想不到的时候来到城中,把一切男丁都杀了,

And it came to pass on the third day, when they were sore, that two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brethren, took each man his sword, and came upon the city boldly, and slew all the males.

34:26 又用刀杀了哈抹和他儿子示剑,把底拿从示剑家里带出来就走了。

And they slew Hamor and Shechem his son with the edge of the sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem's house, and went out.

34:27 雅各的儿子们因为他们的妹子受了玷污,就来到被杀的人那里,掳掠那城,

The sons of Jacob came upon the slain, and spoiled the city, because they had defiled their sister.

34:28 夺了他们的羊群,牛群,和驴,并城里田间所有的。

They took their sheep, and their oxen, and their asses, and that which was in the city, and that which was in the field,

34:29 又把他们一切货财,孩子,妇女,并各房中所有的,都掳掠去了。

And all their wealth, and all their little ones, and their wives took they captive, and spoiled even all that was in the house.

34:30 雅各对西缅和利未说,你们连累我,使我在这地的居民中,就是在迦南人和比利洗人中,有了臭名。我的人丁既然稀少,他们必聚集来击杀我,我和全家的人都必灭绝。

And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, Ye have troubled me to make me to stink among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites: and I being few in number, they shall gather themselves together against me, and slay me; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house.

34:31 他们说,他岂可待我们的妹子如同妓女吗,

And they said, Should he deal with our sister as with an harlot?

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第35 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

35:1 神对雅各说,起来。上伯特利去,住在那里。要在那里筑一座坛给神,就是你逃避你哥哥以扫的时候向你显现的那位。

And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.

35:2 雅各就对他家中的人并一切与他同在的人说,你们要除掉你们中间的外邦神,也要自洁,更换衣裳。

Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments:

35:3 我们要起来,上伯特利去,在那里我要筑一座坛给神,就是在我遭难的日子应允我的祷告,在我行的路上保佑我的那位。

And let us arise, and go up to Bethel; and I will make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went.

35:4 他们就把外邦人的神像和他们耳朵上的环子交给雅各。雅各都藏在示剑那里的橡树底下。

And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem.

35:5 他们便起行前往。神使那周围城邑的人都甚惊惧,就不追赶雅各的众子了。

And they journeyed: and the terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob.

35:6 于是雅各和一切与他同在的人到了迦南地的路斯,就是伯特利。

So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan, that is, Bethel, he and all the people that were with him.

35:7 他在那里筑了一座坛,就给那地方起名叫伊勒伯特利(就是伯特利之神的意思),因为他逃避他哥哥的时候,神在那里向他显现。

And he built there an altar, and called the place Elbethel: because there God appeared unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother.

35:8 利百加的奶母底波拉死了,就葬在伯特利下边橡树底下。那棵树名叫亚伦巴古。

But Deborah Rebekah's nurse died, and she was buried beneath Bethel under an oak: and the name of it was called Allonbachuth.

35:9 雅各从巴旦亚兰回来,神又向他显现,赐福与他,

And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of Padanaram, and blessed him.

35:10 且对他说,你的名原是雅各,从今以后不要再叫雅各,要叫以色列。这样,他就改名叫以色列。

And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel.

35:11 神又对他说,我是全能的神。你要生养众多,将来有一族和多国的民从你而生,又有君王从你而出。

And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins;

35:12 我所赐给亚伯拉罕和以撒的地,我要赐给你与你的后裔。

And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.

35:13 神就从那与雅各说话的地方升上去了。

And God went up from him in the place where he talked with him.

35:14 雅各便在那里立了一根石柱,在柱子上奠酒,浇油。

And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he talked with him, even a pillar of stone: and he poured a drink offering thereon, and he poured oil thereon.

35:15 雅各就给那地方起名叫伯特利。

And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Bethel.

35:16 他们从伯特利起行,离以法他还有一段路程,拉结临产甚是艰难。

And they journeyed from Bethel; and there was but a little way to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour.

35:17 正在艰难的时候,收生婆对她说,不要怕,你又要得一个儿子了。

And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the midwife said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also.

35:18 她将近于死,灵魂要走的时候,就给她儿子起名叫便俄尼。他父亲却给他起名叫便雅悯。

And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died) that she called his name Benoni: but his father called him Benjamin.

35:19 拉结死了,葬在以法他的路旁。以法他就是伯利恒。

And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem.

35:20 雅各在她的坟上立了一统碑,就是拉结的墓碑,到今日还在。

And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day.

35:21 以色列起行前往,在以得台那边支搭帐棚。

And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Edar.

35:22 以色列住在那地的时候,流便去与他父亲的妾辟拉同寝,以色列也听见了。雅各共有十二个儿子。

And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine: and Israel heard it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve:

35:23 利亚所生的是雅各的长子流便,还有西缅,利未,犹大,以萨迦,西布伦。

The sons of Leah; Reuben, Jacob's firstborn, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun:

35:24 拉结所生的是约瑟,便雅悯。

The sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin:

35:25 拉结的使女辟拉所生的是但,拿弗他利。

And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid; Dan, and Naphtali:

35:26 利亚的使女悉帕所生的是迦得,亚设。这是雅各在巴旦亚兰所生的儿子。

And the sons of Zilpah, Leah's handmaid; Gad, and Asher: these are the sons of Jacob, which were born to him in Padanaram.

35:27 雅各来到他父亲以撒那里,到了基列亚巴的幔利,乃是亚伯拉罕和以撒寄居的地方。基列亚巴就是希伯仑。

And Jacob came unto Isaac his father unto Mamre, unto the city of Arbah, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac sojourned.

35:28 以撒共活了一百八十岁。

And the days of Isaac were an hundred and fourscore years.

35:29 以撒年纪老迈,日子满足,气绝而死,归到他列祖(原文作本民)那里。他两个儿子以扫,雅各把他埋葬了。

And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto his people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第36 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

36:1 以扫就是以东,他的后代记在下面。

Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom.

36:2 以扫娶迦南的女子为妻,就是赫人以伦的女儿亚大和希未人祭便的孙女,亚拿的女儿阿何利巴玛,

Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan; Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite;

And Aholibamah bare Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah: these are the sons of Esau, which were born unto him in the land of Canaan.

36:6 以扫带着他的妻子,儿女,与家中一切的人口,并他的牛羊,牲畜,和一切货财,就是他在迦南地所得的,往别处去,离了他兄弟雅各。

And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his daughters, and all the persons of his house, and his cattle, and all his beasts, and all his substance, which he had got in the land of Canaan; and went into the country from the face of his brother Jacob.

36:7 因为二人的财物群畜甚多,寄居的地方容不下他们,所以不能同居。

For their riches were more than that they might dwell together; and the land wherein they were strangers could not bear them because of their cattle.

36:8 于是以扫住在西珥山里。以扫就是以东。

Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir: Esau is Edom.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第37 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

37:1 雅各住在迦南地,就是他父亲寄居的地。

And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan.

37:2 雅各的记略如下。约瑟十七岁与他哥哥们一同牧羊。他是个童子,与他父亲的妾辟拉,悉帕的儿子们常在一处。约瑟将他哥哥们的恶行报给他们的父亲。

These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report.

37:3 以色列原来爱约瑟过于爱他的众子,因为约瑟是他年老生的。他给约瑟作了一件彩衣。

Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.

37:4 约瑟的哥哥们见父亲爱约瑟过于爱他们,就恨约瑟,不与他说和睦的话。

And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.

37:5 约瑟作了一梦,告诉他哥哥们,他们就越发恨他。

And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.

37:6 约瑟对他们说,请听我所作的梦,

And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed:

37:7 我们在田里捆禾稼,我的捆起来站着,你们的捆来围着我的捆下拜。

For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.

37:8 他的哥哥们回答说,难道你真要作我们的王吗。难道你真要管辖我们吗,他们就因为他的梦和他的话越发恨他。

And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.

37:9 后来他又作了一梦,也告诉他的哥哥们说,看哪,我又作了一梦,梦见太阳,月亮,与十一个星向我下拜。

And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

37:10 约瑟将这梦告诉他父亲和他哥哥们,他父亲就责备他说,你作的这是什么梦。难道我和你母亲,你弟兄果然要来俯伏在地,向你下拜吗,

And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?

37:11 他哥哥们都嫉妒他,他父亲却把这话存在心里。

And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.

37:12 约瑟的哥哥们往示剑去放他们父亲的羊。

And his brethren went to feed their father's flock in Shechem.

37:13 以色列对约瑟说,你哥哥们不是在示剑放羊吗。你来,我要打发你往他们那里去。约瑟说,我在这里。

And Israel said unto Joseph, Do not thy brethren feed the flock in Shechem? come, and I will send thee unto them. And he said to him, Here am I.

37:14 以色列说,你去看看你哥哥们平安不平安,群羊平安不平安,就回来报信给我。于是打发他出希伯仑谷,他就往示剑去了。

And he said to him, Go, I pray thee, see whether it be well with thy brethren, and well with the flocks; and bring me word again. So he sent him out of the vale of Hebron, and he came to Shechem.

37:15 有人遇见他在田野走迷了路,就问他说,你找什么,

And a certain man found him, and, behold, he was wandering in the field: and the man asked him, saying, What seekest thou?

37:16 他说,我找我的哥哥们,求你告诉我,他们在何处放羊。

And he said, I seek my brethren: tell me, I pray thee, where they feed their flocks.

37:17 那人说,他们已经走了,我听见他们说要往多坍去。约瑟就去追赶他哥哥们,遇见他们在多坍。

And the man said, They are departed hence; for I heard them say, Let us go to Dothan. And Joseph went after his brethren, and found them in Dothan.

37:18 他们远远地看见他,趁他还没有走到跟前,大家就同谋要害死他,

And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto them, they conspired against him to slay him.

37:19 彼此说,你看。那作梦的来了。

And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh.

37:20 来吧。我们将他杀了,丢在一个坑里,就说有恶兽把他吃了。我们且看他的梦将来怎吗样。

Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him: and we shall see what will become of his dreams.

37:21 流便听见了,要救他脱离他们的手,说,我们不可害他的性命。

And Reuben heard it, and he delivered him out of their hands; and said, Let us not kill him.

37:22 又说,不可流他的血,可以把他丢在这野地的坑里,不可下手害他。流便的意思是要救他脱离他们的手,把他归还他的父亲。

And Reuben said unto them, Shed no blood, but cast him into this pit that is in the wilderness, and lay no hand upon him; that he might rid him out of their hands, to deliver him to his father again.

37:23 约瑟到了他哥哥们那里,他们就剥了他的外衣,,就是他穿的那件彩衣,

And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they stript Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him;

37:24 把他丢在坑里。那坑是空的,里头没有水。

And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no water in it.

37:25 他们坐下吃饭,举目观看,见有一夥米甸的以实玛利人从基列来,用骆驼驮着香料,乳香,没药,要带下埃及去。

And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes and looked, and, behold, a company of Ishmeelites came from Gilead with their camels bearing spicery and balm and myrrh, going to carry it down to Egypt.

37:26 犹大对众弟兄说,我们杀我们的兄弟,藏了他的血有什么益处呢。

And Judah said unto his brethren, What profit is it if we slay our brother, and conceal his blood?

37:27 我们不如将他卖给以实玛利人,不可下手害他。因为他是我们的兄弟,我们的骨肉。众弟兄就听从了他。

Come, and let us sell him to the Ishmeelites, and let not our hand be upon him; for he is our brother and our flesh. And his brethren were content.

37:28 有些米甸的商人从那里经过,哥哥们就把约瑟从坑里拉上来,讲定二十舍客勒银子,把约瑟卖给以实玛利人。他们就把约瑟带到埃及去了。

Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.

37:29 流便回到坑边,见约瑟不在坑里,就撕裂衣服,

And Reuben returned unto the pit; and, behold, Joseph was not in the pit; and he rent his clothes.

37:30 回到兄弟们那里,说,童子没有了。我往哪里去才好呢,

And he returned unto his brethren, and said, The child is not; and I, whither shall I go?

37:31 他们宰了一只公山羊,把约瑟的那件彩衣染了血,

And they took Joseph's coat, and killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the coat in the blood;

37:32 打发人送到他们的父亲那里,说,我们捡了这个。请认一认是你儿子的外衣不是,

And they sent the coat of many colours, and they brought it to their father; and said, This have we found: know now whether it be thy son's coat or no.

37:33 他认得,就说,这是我儿子的外衣。有恶兽把他吃了,约瑟被撕碎了。撕碎了。

And he knew it, and said, It is my son's coat; an evil beast hath devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces.

37:34 雅各便撕裂衣服,腰间围上麻布,为他儿子悲哀了多日。

And Jacob rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his loins, and mourned for his son many days.

37:35 他的儿女都起来安慰他,他却不肯受安慰,说,我必悲哀着下阴间,到我儿子那里。约瑟的父亲就为他哀哭。

And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down into the grave unto my son mourning. Thus his father wept for him.

37:36 米甸人带约瑟到埃及,把他卖给法老的内臣护卫长波提乏。

And the Midianites sold him into Egypt unto Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh's, and captain of the guard.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第38 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

38:1 那时,犹大离开他弟兄下去,到一个亚杜兰人名叫希拉的家里去。

And it came to pass at that time, that Judah went down from his brethren, and turned in to a certain Adullamite, whose name was Hirah.

38:2 犹大在那里看见一个迦南人名叫书亚的女儿,就娶她为妻,与她同房,

And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name was Shuah; and he took her, and went in unto her.

38:3 她就怀孕生了儿子,犹大给他起名叫珥。

And she conceived, and bare a son; and he called his name Er.

38:4 她又怀孕生了儿子,母亲给他起名叫俄南。

And she conceived again, and bare a son; and she called his name Onan.

38:5 她复又生了儿子,给他起名叫示拉。她生示拉的时候,犹大正在基悉。

And she yet again conceived, and bare a son; and called his name Shelah: and he was at Chezib, when she bare him.

38:6 犹大为长子珥娶妻,名叫他玛。

And Judah took a wife for Er his firstborn, whose name was Tamar.

38:7 犹大的长子珥在耶和华眼中看为恶,耶和华就叫他死了。

And Er, Judah's firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the LORD; and the LORD slew him.

38:8 犹大对俄南说,你当与你哥哥的妻子同房,向她尽你为弟的本分,为你哥哥生子立后。

And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother's wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother.

38:9 俄南知道生子不归自己,所以同房的时候便遗在地,免得给他哥哥留后。

And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother's wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.

38:10 俄南所作的在耶和华眼中看为恶,耶和华也就叫他死了。

And the thing which he did displeased the LORD: wherefore he slew him also.

38:11 犹大心里说,恐怕示拉也死,像他两个哥哥一样,就对他儿妇他玛说,你去,在你父亲家里守寡,等我儿子示拉长大。他玛就回去,住在她父亲家里。

Then said Judah to Tamar his daughter in law, Remain a widow at thy father's house, till Shelah my son be grown: for he said, Lest peradventure he die also, as his brethren did. And Tamar went and dwelt in her father's house.

38:12 过了许久,犹大的妻子书亚的女儿死了。犹大得了安慰,就和他朋友亚杜兰人希拉上亭拿去,到他剪羊毛的人那里。

And in process of time the daughter of Shuah Judah's wife died; and Judah was comforted, and went up unto his sheepshearers to Timnath, he and his friend Hirah the Adullamite.

38:13 有人告诉他玛说,你的公公上亭拿剪羊毛去了。

And it was told Tamar, saying, Behold thy father in law goeth up to Timnath to shear his sheep.

38:14 他玛见示拉已经长大,还没有娶她为妻,就脱了她作寡妇的衣裳,用帕子蒙着脸,又遮住身体,坐在亭拿路上的伊拿印城门口。

And she put her widow's garments off from her, and covered her with a vail, and wrapped herself, and sat in an open place, which is by the way to Timnath; for she saw that Shelah was grown, and she was not given unto him to wife.

38:15 犹大看见她,以为是妓女,因为她蒙着脸。

When Judah saw her, he thought her to be an harlot; because she had covered her face.

38:16 犹大就转到她那里去,说,来吧。让我与你同寝。他原不知道是他的儿妇。他玛说,你要与我同寝,把什么给我呢,

And he turned unto her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray thee, let me come in unto thee; (for he knew not that she was his daughter in law.) And she said, What wilt thou give me, that thou mayest come in unto me?

38:17 犹大说,我从羊群里取一只山羊羔,打发人送来给你。他玛说,在未送以先,你愿意给我一个当头吗,

And he said, I will send thee a kid from the flock. And she said, Wilt thou give me a pledge, till thou send it?

38:18 他说,我给你什么当头呢,他玛说,你的印,你的带子,和你手里的杖。犹大就给了她,与她同寝,她就从犹大怀了孕。

And he said, What pledge shall I give thee? And she said, Thy signet, and thy bracelets, and thy staff that is in thine hand. And he gave it her, and came in unto her, and she conceived by him.

38:19 他玛起来走了,除去帕子,仍旧穿上作寡妇的衣裳。

And she arose, and went away, and laid by her vail from her, and put on the garments of her widowhood.

38:20 犹大托他朋友亚杜兰人送一只山羊羔去,要从那女人手里取回当头来,却找不着她。

And Judah sent the kid by the hand of his friend the Adullamite, to receive his pledge from the woman's hand: but he found her not.

38:21 就问那地方的人说,伊拿印路旁的妓女在哪里,他们说,这里并没有妓女。

Then he asked the men of that place, saying, Where is the harlot, that was openly by the way side? And they said, There was no harlot in this place.

38:22 他回去见犹大说,我没有找着她,并且那地方的人说,这里没有妓女。

And he returned to Judah, and said, I cannot find her; and also the men of the place said, that there was no harlot in this place.

38:23 犹大说,我把这山羊羔送去了,你竟找不着她。任凭她拿去吧,免得我们被羞辱。

And Judah said, Let her take it to her, lest we be shamed: behold, I sent this kid, and thou hast not found her.

38:24 约过了三个月,有人告诉犹大说,你的儿妇他玛作了妓女,且因行淫有了身孕。犹大说,拉出她来,把她烧了。

And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt.

38:25 他玛被拉出来的时候便打发人去见她公公,对他说,这些东西是谁的,我就是从谁怀的孕。请你认一认,这印和带子并杖都是谁的,

When she was brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying, By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff.

38:26 犹大承认说,她比我更有义,因为我没有将她给我的儿子示拉。从此犹大不再与她同寝了。

And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again no more.

38:27 他玛将要生产,不料她腹里是一对双生。

And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold, twins were in her womb.

38:28 到生产的时候,一个孩子伸出一只手来。收生婆拿红线拴在他手上,说,这是头生的。

And it came to pass, when she travailed, that the one put out his hand: and the midwife took and bound upon his hand a scarlet thread, saying, This came out first.

38:29 随后这孩子把手收回去,他哥哥生出来了。收生婆说,你为什么抢着来呢,因此给他起名叫法勒斯。

And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, How hast thou broken forth? this breach be upon thee: therefore his name was called Pharez.

38:30 后来,他兄弟那手上有红线的也生出来,就给他起名叫谢拉。

And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet thread upon his hand: and his name was called Zarah.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第39 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

39:1 约瑟被带下埃及去。有一个埃及人,是法老的内臣,护卫长波提乏,从那些带下他来的以实玛利人手下买了他去。

And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither.

39:2 约瑟住在他主人埃及人的家中,耶和华与他同在,他就百事顺利。

And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.

39:3 他主人见耶和华与他同在,又见耶和华使他手里所办的尽都顺利,

And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.

39:4 约瑟就在主人眼前蒙恩,伺候他主人,并且主人派他管理家务,把一切所有的都交在他手里。

And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.

39:5 自从主人派约瑟管理家务和他一切所有的,耶和华就因约瑟的缘故赐福与那埃及人的家。凡家里和田间一切所有的都蒙耶和华赐福。

And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.

39:6 波提乏将一切所有的都交在约瑟的手中,除了自己所吃的饭,别的事一概不知。约瑟原来秀雅俊美。

And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and well favoured.

39:7 这事以后,约瑟主人的妻以目送情给约瑟,说,你与我同寝吧。

And it came to pass after these things, that his master's wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.

39:8 约瑟不从,对他主人的妻说,看哪,一切家务,我主人都不知道。他把所有的都交在我手里。

But he refused, and said unto his master's wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand;

39:9 在这家里没有比我大的。并且他没有留下一样不交给我,只留下了你,因为你是他的妻子。我怎能作这大恶,得罪神呢,

There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?

39:10 后来她天天和约瑟说,约瑟却不听从她,不与她同寝,也不和她在一处。

And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.

39:11 有一天,约瑟进屋里去办事,家中人没有一个在那屋里,

And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within.

39:12 妇人就拉住他的衣裳,说,你与我同寝吧。约瑟把衣裳丢在妇人手里,跑到外边去了。

And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.

39:13 妇人看见约瑟把衣裳丢在她手里跑出去了,

And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and was fled forth,

39:14 就叫了家里的人来,对他们说,你们看。他带了一个希伯来人进入我们家里,要戏弄我们。他到我这里来,要与我同寝,我就大声喊叫。

That she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them, saying, See, he hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice:

39:15 他听见我放声喊起来,就把衣裳丢在我这里,跑到外边去了。

And it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out.

39:16 妇人把约瑟的衣裳放在自己那里,等着他主人回家,

And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home.

39:17 就对他如此如此说,你所带到我们这里的那希伯来仆人进来要戏弄我,

And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me:

39:18 我放声喊起来,他就把衣裳丢在我这里,跑出去了。

And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out.

39:19 约瑟的主人听见他妻子对他所说的话,说,你的仆人如此如此待我,他就生气,

And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled.

39:20 把约瑟下在监里,就是王的囚犯被囚的地方。于是约瑟在那里坐监。

And Joseph's master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king's prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.

39:21 但耶和华与约瑟同在,向他施恩,使他在司狱的眼前蒙恩。

But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

39:22 司狱就把监里所有的囚犯都交在约瑟手下。他们在那里所办的事都是经他的手。

And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's hand all the prisoners that were in the prison; and whatsoever they did there, he was the doer of it.

39:23 凡在约瑟手下的事,司狱一概不察,因为耶和华与约瑟同在。耶和华使他所作的尽都顺利。

The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing that was under his hand; because the LORD was with him, and that which he did, the LORD made it to prosper.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第40 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

40:1 这事以后,埃及王的酒政和膳长得罪了他们的主埃及王,

And it came to pass after these things, that the butler of the king of Egypt and his baker had offended their lord the king of Egypt.

40:2 法老就恼怒酒政和膳长这二臣,

And Pharaoh was wroth against two of his officers, against the chief of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers.

40:3 把他们下在护卫长府内的监里,就是约瑟被囚的地方。

And he put them in ward in the house of the captain of the guard, into the prison, the place where Joseph was bound.

40:4 护卫长把他们交给约瑟,约瑟便伺候他们。他们有些日子在监里。

And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and he served them: and they continued a season in ward.

40:5 被囚在监之埃及王的酒政和膳长二人同夜各作一梦,各梦都有讲解。

And they dreamed a dream both of them, each man his dream in one night, each man according to the interpretation of his dream, the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, which were bound in the prison.

40:6 到了早晨,约瑟进到他们那里,见他们有愁闷的样子。

And Joseph came in unto them in the morning, and looked upon them, and, behold, they were sad.

40:7 他便问法老的二臣,就是与他同囚在他主人府里的,说,他们今日为什么面带愁容呢,

And he asked Pharaoh's officers that were with him in the ward of his lord's house, saying, Wherefore look ye so sadly to day?

40:8 他们对他说,我们各人作了一梦,没有人能解。约瑟说,解梦不是出于神吗。请你们将梦告诉我。

And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations belong to God? tell me them, I pray you.

40:9 酒政便将他的梦告诉约瑟说,我梦见在我面前有一棵葡萄树,

And the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, In my dream, behold, a vine was before me;

40:10 树上有三根枝子,好像发了芽,开了花,上头的葡萄都成熟了。

And in the vine were three branches: and it was as though it budded, and her blossoms shot forth; and the clusters thereof brought forth ripe grapes:

40:11 法老的杯在我手中,我就拿葡萄挤在法老的杯里,将杯递在他手中。

And Pharaoh's cup was in my hand: and I took the grapes, and pressed them into Pharaoh's cup, and I gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand.

40:12 约瑟对他说,他所作的梦是这样解,三根枝子就是三天。

And Joseph said unto him, This is the interpretation of it: The three branches are three days:

40:13 三天之内,法老必提你出监,叫你官复原职,你仍要递杯在法老的手中,和先前作他的酒政一样。

Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thine head, and restore thee unto thy place: and thou shalt deliver Pharaoh's cup into his hand, after the former manner when thou wast his butler.

40:14 但你得好处的时候,求你记念我,施恩与我,在法老面前提说我,救我出这监牢。

But think on me when it shall be well with thee, and shew kindness, I pray thee, unto me, and make mention of me unto Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house:

40:15 我实在是从希伯来人之地被拐来的。我在这里也没有作过什么,叫他们把我下在监里。

For indeed I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews: and here also have I done nothing that they should put me into the dungeon.

40:16 膳长见梦解得好,就对约瑟说,我在梦中见我头上顶着三筐白饼。

When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said unto Joseph, I also was in my dream, and, behold, I had three white baskets on my head:

40:17 极上的筐子里有为法老烤的各样食物,有飞鸟来吃我头上筐子里的食物。

And in the uppermost basket there was of all manner of bakemeats for Pharaoh; and the birds did eat them out of the basket upon my head.

40:18 约瑟说,你的梦是这样解,三个筐子就是三天。

And Joseph answered and said, This is the interpretation thereof: The three baskets are three days:

40:19 三天之内,法老必斩断你的头,把你挂在木头上,必有飞鸟来吃你身上的肉。

Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head from off thee, and shall hang thee on a tree; and the birds shall eat thy flesh from off thee.

40:20 到了第三天,是法老的生日,他为众臣仆设摆筵席,把酒政和膳长提出监来,

And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh's birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.

40:21 使酒政官复原职,他仍旧递杯在法老手中。

And he restored the chief butler unto his butlership again; and he gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand:

40:22 但把膳长挂起来,正如约瑟向他们所解的话。

But he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted to them.

40:23 酒政却不记念约瑟,竟忘了他。

Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgat him.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第41 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

41:1 过了两年,法老作梦,梦见自己站在河边,

And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.

41:2 有七只母牛从河里上来,又美好又肥壮,在芦荻中吃草。

And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well favoured kine and fatfleshed; and they fed in a meadow.

41:3 随后又有七只母牛从河里上来,又丑陋又乾瘦,与那七只母牛一同站在河边。

And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the river, ill favoured and leanfleshed; and stood by the other kine upon the brink of the river.

41:4 这又丑陋又乾瘦的七只母牛吃尽了那又美好又肥壮的七只母牛。法老就醒了。

And the ill favoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the seven well favoured and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke.

41:5 他又睡着,第二回作梦,梦见一棵麦子长了七个穗子,又肥大又佳美,

And he slept and dreamed the second time: and, behold, seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good.

41:6 随后又长了七个穗子,又细弱又被东风吹焦了。

And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted with the east wind sprung up after them.

41:7 这细弱的穗子吞了那七个又肥大又饱满的穗子。法老醒了,不料是个梦。

And the seven thin ears devoured the seven rank and full ears. And Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it was a dream.

41:8 到了早晨,法老心里不安,就差人召了埃及所有的术士和博士来。法老就把所作的梦告诉他们,却没有人能给法老圆解。

And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh.

41:9 那时酒政对法老说,我今日想起我的罪来。

Then spake the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I do remember my faults this day:

41:10 从前法老恼怒臣仆,把我和膳长下在护卫长府布的监里。

Pharaoh was wroth with his servants, and put me in ward in the captain of the guard's house, both me and the chief baker:

41:11 我们二人同夜各作一梦,各梦都有讲解。

And we dreamed a dream in one night, I and he; we dreamed each man according to the interpretation of his dream.

41:12 在那里同着我们有一个希伯来的少年人,是护卫长的仆人,我们告诉他,他就把我们的梦圆解,是按着各人的梦圆解的。

And there was there with us a young man, an Hebrew, servant to the captain of the guard; and we told him, and he interpreted to us our dreams; to each man according to his dream he did interpret.

41:13 后来正如他给我们圆解的成就了。我官复原职,膳长被挂起来了。

And it came to pass, as he interpreted to us, so it was; me he restored unto mine office, and him he hanged.

41:14 法老遂即差人去召约瑟,他们便急忙带他出监,他就剃头,刮脸,换衣裳,进到法老面前。

Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh.

41:15 法老对约瑟说,我作了一梦,没有人能解。我听见人说,你听了梦就能解。

And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of thee, that thou canst understand a dream to interpret it.

41:16 约瑟回答法老说,这不在乎我,神必将平安的话回答法老。

And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.

41:17 法老对约瑟说,我梦见我站在河边,

And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, In my dream, behold, I stood upon the bank of the river:

41:18 有七只母牛从河里上来,又肥壮又美好,在芦荻中吃草。

And, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, fatfleshed and well favoured; and they fed in a meadow:

41:19 随后又有七只母牛上来,又软弱又丑陋又乾瘦,在埃及遍地,我没有见过这样不好的。

And, behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor and very ill favoured and leanfleshed, such as I never saw in all the land of Egypt for badness:

41:20 这又乾瘦又丑陋的母牛吃尽了那以先的七只肥母牛,

And the lean and the ill favoured kine did eat up the first seven fat kine:

41:21 吃了以后却看不出是吃了,那丑陋的样子仍旧和先前一样。我就醒了。

And when they had eaten them up, it could not be known that they had eaten them; but they were still ill favoured, as at the beginning. So I awoke.

41:22 我又梦见一棵麦子,长了七个穗子,又饱满又佳美,

And I saw in my dream, and, behold, seven ears came up in one stalk, full and good:

41:23 随后又长了七个穗子,枯槁细弱,被东风吹焦了。

And, behold, seven ears, withered, thin, and blasted with the east wind, sprung up after them:

41:24 这些细弱的穗子吞了那七个佳美的穗子。我将这梦告诉了术士,却没有人能给我解说。

And the thin ears devoured the seven good ears: and I told this unto the magicians; but there was none that could declare it to me.

41:25 约瑟对法老说,法老的梦乃是一个。神已将所要作的事指示法老了。

And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath shewed Pharaoh what he is about to do.

41:26 七只好母牛是七年,七个好穗子也是七年。这梦乃是一个。

The seven good kine are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven years: the dream is one.

41:27 那随后上来的七只又乾瘦又丑陋的母牛是七年,那七个虚空,被东风吹焦的穗子也是七年,都是七个荒年。

And the seven thin and ill favoured kine that came up after them are seven years; and the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind shall be seven years of famine.

41:28 这就是我对法老所说,神已将所要作的事显明给法老了。

This is the thing which I have spoken unto Pharaoh: What God is about to do he sheweth unto Pharaoh.

41:29 埃及遍地必来七个大丰年,

Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt:

41:30 随后又要来七个荒年,甚至埃及地都忘了先前的丰收,全地必被饥荒所灭。

And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land;

41:31 因那以后的饥荒甚大,便不觉得先前的丰收了。

And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine following; for it shall be very grievous.

41:32 至于法老两回作梦,是因神命定这事,而且必速速成就。

And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.

41:33 所以,法老当拣选一个有聪明有智慧的人,派他治理埃及地。

Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.

41:34 法老当这样行,又派官员管理这地。当七个丰年的时候,征收埃及地的五分之一,

Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, and take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years.

41:35 叫他们把将来丰年一切的粮食聚敛起来,积蓄五谷,收存在各城里作食物,归于法老的手下。

And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.

41:36 所积蓄的粮食可以防备埃及地将来的七个荒年,免得这地被饥荒所灭。

And that food shall be for store to the land against the seven years of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish not through the famine.

41:37 法老和他一切臣仆都以这事为妙。

And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants.

41:38 法老对臣仆说,像这样的人,有神的灵在他里头,我们岂能找得着呢,

And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?

41:39 法老对约瑟说,神既将这事都指示你,可见没有人像你这样有聪明有智慧。

And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:

41:40 你可以掌管我的家。我的民都必听从你的话。惟独在宝座上我比你大。

Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.

41:41 法老又对约瑟说,我派你治理埃及全地。

And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.

41:42 法老就摘下手上打印的戒指,戴在约瑟的手上,给他穿上细麻衣,把金链戴在他的颈项上,

And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck;

41:43 又叫约瑟坐他的副车,喝道的在前呼叫说,跪下。这样,法老派他治理埃及全地。

And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.

41:44 法老对约瑟说,我是法老,在埃及全地,若没有你的命令,不许人擅自办事(原文作动手动脚)。

And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.

41:45 法老赐名给约瑟,叫撒发那忒巴内亚,又将安城的祭司波提非拉的女儿亚西纳给他为妻。约瑟就出去巡行埃及地。

And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.

41:46 约瑟见埃及王法老的时候年三十岁。他从法老面前出去,遍行埃及全地。

And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt.

41:47 七个丰年之内,地的出产极丰极盛(原文作一把一把的),

And in the seven plenteous years the earth brought forth by handfuls.

41:48 约瑟聚敛埃及地七个丰年一切的粮食,把粮食积存在各城里。各城周围田地的粮食都积存在本城里。

And he gathered up all the food of the seven years, which were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the field, which was round about every city, laid he up in the same.

41:49 约瑟积蓄五谷甚多,如同海边的沙,无法计算,因为谷不可胜数。

And Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the sea, very much, until he left numbering; for it was without number.

41:50 荒年未到以前,安城的祭司波提非拉的女儿亚西纳给约瑟生了两个儿子。

And unto Joseph were born two sons before the years of famine came, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto him.

41:51 约瑟给长子起名叫玛拿西(就是使之忘了的意思),因为他说,神使我忘了一切的困苦和我父的全家。

And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house.

41:52 他给次子起名叫以法莲(就是使之昌盛的意思),因为他说,神使我在受苦的地方昌盛。

And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.

41:53 埃及地的七个丰年一完,

And the seven years of plenteousness, that was in the land of Egypt, were ended.

41:54 七个荒年就来了。正如约瑟所说的,各地都有饥荒。惟独埃及全地有粮食。

And the seven years of dearth began to come, according as Joseph had said: and the dearth was in all lands; but in all the land of Egypt there was bread.

41:55 及至埃及全地有了饥荒,众民向法老哀求粮食,法老对他们说,你们往约瑟那里去,凡他所说的,你们都要作。

And when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharaoh for bread: and Pharaoh said unto all the Egyptians, Go unto Joseph; what he saith to you, do.

41:56 当时饥荒遍满天下,约瑟开了各处的仓,粜粮给埃及人。在埃及地饥荒甚大。

And the famine was over all the face of the earth: And Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold unto the Egyptians; and the famine waxed sore in the land of Egypt.

41:57 各地的人都往埃及去,到约瑟那里籴粮,因为天下的饥荒甚大。

And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph for to buy corn; because that the famine was so sore in all lands.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第42 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

42:1 雅各见埃及有粮,就对儿子们说,你们为什么彼此观望呢。

Now when Jacob saw that there was corn in Egypt, Jacob said unto his sons, Why do ye look one upon another?

42:2 我听见埃及有粮,你们可以下去,从那里为我们籴些来,使我们可以存活,不至于死。

And he said, Behold, I have heard that there is corn in Egypt: get you down thither, and buy for us from thence; that we may live, and not die.

42:3 于是,约瑟的十个哥哥都下埃及籴粮去了。

And Joseph's ten brethren went down to buy corn in Egypt.

42:4 但约瑟的兄弟便雅悯,雅各没有打发他和哥哥们同去,因为雅各说,恐怕他遭害。

But Benjamin, Joseph's brother, Jacob sent not with his brethren; for he said, Lest peradventure mischief befall him.

42:5 来籴粮的人中有以色列的儿子们,因为迦南地也有饥荒。

And the sons of Israel came to buy corn among those that came: for the famine was in the land of Canaan.

42:6 当时治理埃及地的是约瑟。粜粮给那地众民的就是他。约瑟的哥哥们来了,脸伏于地,向他下拜。

And Joseph was the governor over the land, and he it was that sold to all the people of the land: and Joseph's brethren came, and bowed down themselves before him with their faces to the earth.

42:7 约瑟看见他哥哥们,就认得他们,却装作生人,向他们说些严厉话,问他们说,你们从哪里来。他们说,我们从迦南地来籴粮。

And Joseph saw his brethren, and he knew them, but made himself strange unto them, and spake roughly unto them; and he said unto them, Whence come ye? And they said, From the land of Canaan to buy food.

42:8 约瑟认得他哥哥们,他们却不认得他。

And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew not him.

42:9 约瑟想起从前所作的那两个梦,就对他们说,你们是奸细,来窥探这地的虚实。

And Joseph remembered the dreams which he dreamed of them, and said unto them, Ye are spies; to see the nakedness of the land ye are come.

42:10 他们对他说,我主阿,不是的。仆人们是籴粮来的。

And they said unto him, Nay, my lord, but to buy food are thy servants come.

42:11 我们都是一个人的儿子,是诚实人。仆人们并不是奸细。

We are all one man's sons; we are true men, thy servants are no spies.

42:12 约瑟说,不然,你们必是窥探这地的虚实来的。

And he said unto them, Nay, but to see the nakedness of the land ye are come.

42:13 他们说,仆人们本是弟兄十二人,是迦南地一个人的儿子,顶小的现今在我们的父亲那里,有一个没有了。

And they said, Thy servants are twelve brethren, the sons of one man in the land of Canaan; and, behold, the youngest is this day with our father, and one is not.

42:14 约瑟说,我才说你们是奸细,这话实在不错。

And Joseph said unto them, That is it that I spake unto you, saying, Ye are spies:

42:15 我指着法老的性命起誓,若是你们的小兄弟不到这里来,你们就不得出这地方,从此就可以把你们证验出来了。

Hereby ye shall be proved: By the life of Pharaoh ye shall not go forth hence, except your youngest brother come hither.

42:16 须要打发你们中间一个人去,把你们的兄弟带来。至于你们,都要囚在这里,好证验你们的话涉不真,若不真,我指着法老的性命起誓,你们一定是奸细。

Send one of you, and let him fetch your brother, and ye shall be kept in prison, that your words may be proved, whether there be any truth in you: or else by the life of Pharaoh surely ye are spies.

42:17 于是约瑟把他们都下在监里三天。

And he put them all together into ward three days.

42:18 到了第三天,约瑟对他们说,我是敬畏神的。你们照我的话行就可以存活。

And Joseph said unto them the third day, This do, and live; for I fear God:

42:19 你们如果是诚实人,可以留你们中间的一个人囚在监里,但你们可以带着粮食回去,救你们家里的饥荒。

If ye be true men, let one of your brethren be bound in the house of your prison: go ye, carry corn for the famine of your houses:

42:20 把你们的小兄弟带到我这里来,如此,你们的话便有证据,你们也不至于死。他们就照样而行。

But bring your youngest brother unto me; so shall your words be verified, and ye shall not die. And they did so.

42:21 他们彼此说,我们在兄弟身上实在有罪。他哀求我们的时候,我们见他心里的愁苦,却不肯听,所以这场苦难临到我们身上。

And they said one to another, We are verily guilty concerning our brother, in that we saw the anguish of his soul, when he besought us, and we would not hear; therefore is this distress come upon us.

42:22 流便说,我岂不是对你们说过,不可伤害那孩子吗。只是你们不肯听,所以流他血的罪向我们追讨。

And Reuben answered them, saying, Spake I not unto you, saying, Do not sin against the child; and ye would not hear? therefore, behold, also his blood is required.

42:23 他们不知道约瑟听得出来,因为在他们中间用通事传话。

And they knew not that Joseph understood them; for he spake unto them by an interpreter.

42:24 约瑟转身退去,哭了一场,又回来对他们说话,就从他们中间挑出西缅来,在他们眼前把他捆绑。

And he turned himself about from them, and wept; and returned to them again, and communed with them, and took from them Simeon, and bound him before their eyes.

42:25 约瑟吩咐人把粮食装满他们的器具,把各人的银子归还在各人的口袋里,又给他们路上用的食物,人就照他的话办了。

Then Joseph commanded to fill their sacks with corn, and to restore every man's money into his sack, and to give them provision for the way: and thus did he unto them.

42:26 他们就把粮食驮在驴上,离开那里去了。

And they laded their asses with the corn, and departed thence.

42:27 到了住宿的地方,他们中间有一个人打开口袋,要拿料喂驴,才看见自己的银子仍在口袋里,

And as one of them opened his sack to give his ass provender in the inn, he espied his money; for, behold, it was in his sack's mouth.

42:28 就对弟兄们说,我的银子归还了,看阿,仍在我口袋里。他们就提心吊胆,战战兢兢地彼此说,这是神向我们作什么呢,

And he said unto his brethren, My money is restored; and, lo, it is even in my sack: and their heart failed them, and they were afraid, saying one to another, What is this that God hath done unto us?

42:29 他们来到迦南地,他们的父亲雅各那里,将所遭遇的事都告诉他,说,

And they came unto Jacob their father unto the land of Canaan, and told him all that befell unto them; saying,

42:30 那地的主对我们说严厉的话,把我们当作窥探那地的奸细。

The man, who is the lord of the land, spake roughly to us, and took us for spies of the country.

42:31 我们对他说,我们是诚实人,并不是奸细。

And we said unto him, We are true men; we are no spies:

42:32 我们本是弟兄十二人,都是一个父亲的儿子,有一个没有了,顶小的如今同我们的父亲在迦南地。

We be twelve brethren, sons of our father; one is not, and the youngest is this day with our father in the land of Canaan.

42:33 那地的主对我们说,若要我知道你们是诚实人,可以留下你们中间的一个人在我这里,你们可以带着粮食回去,救你们家里的饥荒。

And the man, the lord of the country, said unto us, Hereby shall I know that ye are true men; leave one of your brethren here with me, and take food for the famine of your households, and be gone:

42:34 把你们的小兄弟带到我这里来,我便知道你们不是奸细,乃是诚实人。这样,我就把你们的弟兄交给你们,你们也可以在这地作买卖。

And bring your youngest brother unto me: then shall I know that ye are no spies, but that ye are true men: so will I deliver you your brother, and ye shall traffick in the land.

42:35 后来他们倒口袋,不料,各人的银包都在口袋里。他们和父亲看见银包就都害怕。

And it came to pass as they emptied their sacks, that, behold, every man's bundle of money was in his sack: and when both they and their father saw the bundles of money, they were afraid.

42:36 他们的父亲雅各对他们说,你们使我丧失我的儿子,约瑟没有了,西缅也没有了,你们又要将便雅悯带去。这些事都归到我身上了。

And Jacob their father said unto them, Me have ye bereaved of my children: Joseph is not, and Simeon is not, and ye will take Benjamin away: all these things are against me.

42:37 流便对他父亲说,我若不带他回来交给你,你可以杀我的两个儿子。只管把他交在我手里,我必带他回来交给你。

And Reuben spake unto his father, saying, Slay my two sons, if I bring him not to thee: deliver him into my hand, and I will bring him to thee again.

42:38 雅各说,我的儿子不可与你们一同下去。他哥哥死了,只剩下他,他若在你们所行的路上遭害,那便是你们使我白发苍苍,悲悲惨惨地下阴间去了。

And he said, My son shall not go down with you; for his brother is dead, and he is left alone: if mischief befall him by the way in the which ye go, then shall ye bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第43 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

43:1 那地的饥荒甚大。

And the famine was sore in the land.

43:2 他们从埃及带来的粮食吃尽了,他们的父亲就对他们说,你们再去给我籴些粮来。

And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the corn which they had brought out of Egypt, their father said unto them, Go again, buy us a little food.

43:3 犹大对他说,那人谆谆地告诫我们说,你们的兄弟若不与你们同来,你们就不得见我的面。

And Judah spake unto him, saying, The man did solemnly protest unto us, saying, Ye shall not see my face, except your brother be with you.

43:4 你若打发我们的兄弟与我们同去,我们就下去给你籴粮。

If thou wilt send our brother with us, we will go down and buy thee food:

43:5 你若不打发他去,我们就不下去,因为那人对我们说,你们的兄弟若不与你们同来,你们就不得见我的面。

But if thou wilt not send him, we will not go down: for the man said unto us, Ye shall not see my face, except your brother be with you.

43:6 以色列说,你们为什么这样害我,告诉那人你们还有兄弟呢,

And Israel said, Wherefore dealt ye so ill with me, as to tell the man whether ye had yet a brother?

43:7 他们回答说,那人详细问到我们和我们的亲属,说,你们的父亲还在吗。你们还有兄弟吗。我们就按着他所问的告诉他,焉能知道他要说,必须把你们的兄弟带下来呢。

And they said, The man asked us straitly of our state, and of our kindred, saying, Is your father yet alive? have ye another brother? and we told him according to the tenor of these words: could we certainly know that he would say, Bring your brother down?

43:8 犹大又对他父亲以色列说,你打发童子与我同去,我们就起身下去,好叫我们和你,并我们的妇人孩子,都得存活,不至于死。

And Judah said unto Israel his father, Send the lad with me, and we will arise and go; that we may live, and not die, both we, and thou, and also our little ones.

43:9 我为他作保。你可以从我手中追讨,我若不带他回来交在你面前,我情愿永远担罪。

I will be surety for him; of my hand shalt thou require him: if I bring him not unto thee, and set him before thee, then let me bear the blame for ever:

43:10 我们若没有耽搁,如今第二次都回来了。

For except we had lingered, surely now we had returned this second time.

43:11 他们的父亲以色列说,若必须如此,你们就当这样行,可以将这地土产中最好的乳香,蜂蜜,香料,没药,榧子,杏仁都取一点,收在器具里,带下去送给那人作礼物,

And their father Israel said unto them, If it must be so now, do this; take of the best fruits in the land in your vessels, and carry down the man a present, a little balm, and a little honey, spices, and myrrh, nuts, and almonds:

43:12 又要手里加倍地带银子,并将归还在你们口袋内的银子仍带在手里。那或者是错了。

And take double money in your hand; and the money that was brought again in the mouth of your sacks, carry it again in your hand; peradventure it was an oversight:

43:13 也带着你们的兄弟,起身去见那人。

Take also your brother, and arise, go again unto the man:

43:14 但愿全能的神使你们在那人面前蒙怜悯,释放你们的那弟兄和便雅悯回来。我若丧了儿子,就丧了吧。

And God Almighty give you mercy before the man, that he may send away your other brother, and Benjamin. If I be bereaved of my children, I am bereaved.

43:15 于是,他们拿着那礼物,又手里加倍地带银子,并且带着便雅悯,起身下到埃及,站在约瑟面前。

And the men took that present, and they took double money in their hand, and Benjamin; and rose up, and went down to Egypt, and stood before Joseph.

43:16 约瑟见便雅悯和他们同来,就对家宰说,将这些人领到屋里。要宰杀牲畜,预备筵席,因为晌午这些人同我吃饭。

And when Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to the ruler of his house, Bring these men home, and slay, and make ready; for these men shall dine with me at noon.

43:17 家宰就遵着约瑟的命去行,领他们进约瑟的屋里。

And the man did as Joseph bade; and the man brought the men into Joseph's house.

43:18 他们因为被领到约瑟的屋里,就害怕,说,领我们到这里来,必是因为头次归还在我们口袋里的银子,找我们的错缝,下手害我们,强取我们为奴仆,抢夺我们的驴。

And the men were afraid, because they were brought into Joseph's house; and they said, Because of the money that was returned in our sacks at the first time are we brought in; that he may seek occasion against us, and fall upon us, and take us for bondmen, and our asses.

43:19 他们就挨进约瑟的家宰,在屋门口和他说话,

And they came near to the steward of Joseph's house, and they communed with him at the door of the house,

43:20 说,我主阿,我们头次下来实在是要籴粮。

And said, O sir, we came indeed down at the first time to buy food:

43:21 后来到了住宿的地方,我们打开口袋,不料,各人的银子,分量足数,仍在各人的口袋内,现在我们手里又带回来了。

And it came to pass, when we came to the inn, that we opened our sacks, and, behold, every man's money was in the mouth of his sack, our money in full weight: and we have brought it again in our hand.

43:22 另外又带下银子来籴粮。不知道先前谁把银子放在我们的口袋里。

And other money have we brought down in our hands to buy food: we cannot tell who put our money in our sacks.

43:23 家宰说,你们可以放心,不要害怕,是你们的神和你们父亲的神赐给你们财宝在你们的口袋里。你们的银子,我早已收了。他就把西缅带出来,交给他们。

And he said, Peace be to you, fear not: your God, and the God of your father, hath given you treasure in your sacks: I had your money. And he brought Simeon out unto them.

43:24 家宰就领他们进约瑟的屋里,给他们水洗脚,又给他们草料喂驴。

And the man brought the men into Joseph's house, and gave them water, and they washed their feet; and he gave their asses provender.

43:25 他们就预备那礼物,等候约瑟晌午来,因为他们听见要在那里吃饭。

And they made ready the present against Joseph came at noon: for they heard that they should eat bread there.

43:26 约瑟来到家里,他们就把手中的礼物拿进屋去给他,又俯伏在地,向他下拜。

And when Joseph came home, they brought him the present which was in their hand into the house, and bowed themselves to him to the earth.

43:27 约瑟问他们好,又问,你们的父亲就是你们所说的那老人家平安吗。他还在吗。

And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father well, the old man of whom ye spake? Is he yet alive?

43:28 他们回答说,你仆人我们的父亲平安。他还在。于是他们低头下拜。

And they answered, Thy servant our father is in good health, he is yet alive. And they bowed down their heads, and made obeisance.

43:29 约瑟举目看见他同母的兄弟便雅悯,就说,你们向我所说那顶小的兄弟就是这位吗。又说,小儿阿,愿神赐恩给你。

And he lifted up his eyes, and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother's son, and said, Is this your younger brother, of whom ye spake unto me? And he said, God be gracious unto thee, my son.

43:30 约瑟爱弟之情发动,就急忙寻梢可哭之地,进入自己的屋里,哭了一场。

And Joseph made haste; for his bowels did yearn upon his brother: and he sought where to weep; and he entered into his chamber, and wept there.

43:31 他洗了脸出来,勉强隐忍,吩咐人摆饭。

And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and said, Set on bread.

43:32 他们就为约瑟单摆了一席,为那些人又摆了一席,也为和约瑟同吃饭的埃及人另摆了一席,因为埃及人不可和希伯来人一同吃饭。那原是埃及人所厌恶的。

And they set on for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians, which did eat with him, by themselves: because the Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews; for that is an abomination unto the Egyptians.

43:33 约瑟使众弟兄在他面前排列坐席,都按着长幼的次序,众弟兄就彼此诧异。

And they sat before him, the firstborn according to his birthright, and the youngest according to his youth: and the men marvelled one at another.

43:34 约瑟把他面前的食物分出来,送给他们。但便雅悯所得的比别人多五倍。他们就饮酒,和约瑟一同宴乐。

And he took and sent messes unto them from before him: but Benjamin's mess was five times so much as any of theirs. And they drank, and were merry with him.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第44 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

44:1 约瑟吩咐家宰说,把粮食装满这些人的口袋,尽着他们的驴所能驮的,又把各人的银子放在各人的口袋里,

And he commanded the steward of his house, saying, Fill the men's sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put every man's money in his sack's mouth.

44:2 并将我的银杯和那少年人籴粮的银子一同装在他的口袋里。家宰就照约瑟所说的话行了。

And put my cup, the silver cup, in the sack's mouth of the youngest, and his corn money. And he did according to the word that Joseph had spoken.

44:3 天一亮就打发那些人带着驴走了。

As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away, they and their asses.

44:4 他们出城走了不远,约瑟对家宰说,起来,追那些人去,追上了就对他们说,你们为什么以恶报善呢。

And when they were gone out of the city, and not yet far off, Joseph said unto his steward, Up, follow after the men; and when thou dost overtake them, say unto them, Wherefore have ye rewarded evil for good?

44:5 这不是我主人饮酒的杯吗。岂不是他占卜用的吗。你们这样行是作恶了。

Is not this it in which my lord drinketh, and whereby indeed he divineth? ye have done evil in so doing.

44:6 家宰追上他们,将这些话对他们说了。

And he overtook them, and he spake unto them these same words.

44:7 他们回答说,我主为什么说这样的话呢。你仆人断不能作这样的事。

And they said unto him, Wherefore saith my lord these words? God forbid that thy servants should do according to this thing:

44:8 你看,我们从前在口袋里所见的银子,尚且从迦南地带来还你,我们怎能从你主人家里偷窃金银呢。

Behold, the money, which we found in our sacks' mouths, we brought again unto thee out of the land of Canaan: how then should we steal out of thy lord's house silver or gold?

44:9 你仆人中无论在谁那里搜出来,就叫他死,我们也作我主的奴仆。

With whomsoever of thy servants it be found, both let him die, and we also will be my lord's bondmen.

44:10 家宰说,现在就照你们的话行吧。在谁那里搜出来,谁就作我的奴仆。其馀的都没有罪。

And he said, Now also let it be according unto your words: he with whom it is found shall be my servant; and ye shall be blameless.

44:11 于是他们各人急忙把口袋卸在地下,各人打开口袋。

Then they speedily took down every man his sack to the ground, and opened every man his sack.

44:12 家宰就搜查,从年长的起到年幼的为止,那杯竟在便雅悯的口袋里搜出来。

And he searched, and began at the eldest, and left at the youngest: and the cup was found in Benjamin's sack.

44:13 他们就撕裂衣服,各人把驮子抬在驴上,回城去了。

Then they rent their clothes, and laded every man his ass, and returned to the city.

44:14 犹大和他弟兄们来到约瑟的屋中,约瑟还在那里,他们就在他面前俯伏于地。

And Judah and his brethren came to Joseph's house; for he was yet there: and they fell before him on the ground.

44:15 约瑟对他们说,你们作的是什么事呢。你们岂不知像我这样的人必能占卜吗,

And Joseph said unto them, What deed is this that ye have done? wot ye not that such a man as I can certainly divine?

44:16 犹大说,我们对我主说什么呢。还有什么话可说呢。我们怎能自己表白出来呢。神已经查出仆人的罪孽了。我们与那在他手中搜出杯来的都是我主的奴仆。

And Judah said, What shall we say unto my lord? what shall we speak? or how shall we clear ourselves? God hath found out the iniquity of thy servants: behold, we are my lord's servants, both we, and he also with whom the cup is found.

44:17 约瑟说,我断不能这样行。在谁的手中搜出杯来,谁就作我的奴仆。至于你们,可以平平安安地上你们父亲那里去。

And he said, God forbid that I should do so: but the man in whose hand the cup is found, he shall be my servant; and as for you, get you up in peace unto your father.

44:18 犹大挨近他,说,我主阿,求你容仆人说一句话给我主听,不要向仆人发烈怒,因为你如同法老一样。

Then Judah came near unto him, and said, Oh my lord, let thy servant, I pray thee, speak a word in my lord's ears, and let not thine anger burn against thy servant: for thou art even as Pharaoh.

44:19 我主曾问仆人们说,你们有父亲有兄弟没有。

My lord asked his servants, saying, Have ye a father, or a brother?

44:20 我们对我主说,我们有父亲,已经年老,还有他老年所生的一个小孩子。他哥哥死了,他母亲只撇下他一人,他父亲疼爱他。

And we said unto my lord, We have a father, an old man, and a child of his old age, a little one; and his brother is dead, and he alone is left of his mother, and his father loveth him.

44:21 你对仆人说,把他带到我这里来,叫我亲眼看看他。

And thou saidst unto thy servants, Bring him down unto me, that I may set mine eyes upon him.

44:22 我们对我主说,童子不能离开他父亲,若是离开,他父亲必死。

And we said unto my lord, The lad cannot leave his father: for if he should leave his father, his father would die.

44:23 你对仆人说,你们的小兄弟若不与你们一同下来,你们就不得再见我的面。

And thou saidst unto thy servants, Except your youngest brother come down with you, ye shall see my face no more.

44:24 我们上到你仆人我们父亲那里,就把我主的话告诉了他。

And it came to pass when we came up unto thy servant my father, we told him the words of my lord.

44:25 我们的父亲说,你们再去给我籴些粮来。

And our father said, Go again, and buy us a little food.

44:26 我们就说,我们不能下去。我们的小兄弟若和我们同往,我们就可以下去。因为,小兄弟若不与我们同往,我们必不得见那人的面。

And we said, We cannot go down: if our youngest brother be with us, then will we go down: for we may not see the man's face, except our youngest brother be with us.

44:27 你仆人我父亲对我们说,你们知道我的妻子给我生了两个儿子。

And thy servant my father said unto us, Ye know that my wife bare me two sons:

44:28 一个离开我出去了。我说他必是被撕碎了,直到如今我也没有见他。

And the one went out from me, and I said, Surely he is torn in pieces; and I saw him not since:

44:29 现在你们又要把这个带去离开我,倘若他遭害,那便是你们使我白发苍苍,悲悲惨惨地下阴间去了。

And if ye take this also from me, and mischief befall him, ye shall bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.

44:30 我父亲的命与这童子的命相连。如今我回到你仆人我父亲那里,若没有童子与我们同在,

Now therefore when I come to thy servant my father, and the lad be not with us; seeing that his life is bound up in the lad's life;

44:31 我们的父亲见没有童子,他就必死。这便是我们使你仆人我们的父亲白发苍苍,悲悲惨惨地下阴间去了。

It shall come to pass, when he seeth that the lad is not with us, that he will die: and thy servants shall bring down the gray hairs of thy servant our father with sorrow to the grave.

44:32 因为仆人曾向我父亲为这童子作保,说,我若不带他回来交给父亲,我便在父亲面前永远担罪。

For thy servant became surety for the lad unto my father, saying, If I bring him not unto thee, then I shall bear the blame to my father for ever.

44:33 现在求你容仆人住下,替这童子作我主的奴仆,叫童子和他哥哥们一同上去。

Now therefore, I pray thee, let thy servant abide instead of the lad a bondman to my lord; and let the lad go up with his brethren.

44:34 若童子不和我同去,我怎能上去见我父亲呢。恐怕我看见灾祸临到我父亲身上。

For how shall I go up to my father, and the lad be not with me? lest peradventure I see the evil that shall come on my father.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第45 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

45:1 约瑟在左右站着的人面前情不自禁,吩咐一声说,人都要离开我出去。约瑟和弟兄相认的时候并没有一人站在他面前。

Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his brethren.

45:2 他就放声大哭,埃及人和法老家中的人都听见了。

And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard.

45:3 约瑟对他弟兄们说,我是约瑟。我的父亲还在吗,他弟兄不能回答,因为在他面前都惊惶。

And Joseph said unto his brethren, I am Joseph; doth my father yet live? And his brethren could not answer him; for they were troubled at his presence.

45:4 约瑟又对他弟兄们说,请你们近前来。他们就近前来。他说,我是你们的兄弟约瑟,就是你们所卖到埃及的。

And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt.

45:5 现在,不要因为把我卖到这里自忧自恨。这是神差我在你们以先来,为要保全生命。

Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life.

45:6 现在这地的饥荒已经二年了,还在五年不能耕种,不能收成。

For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest.

45:7 神差我在你们以先来,为要给你们存留馀种在世上,又要大施拯救,保全你们的生命。

And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.

45:8 这样看来,差我到这里来的不是你们,乃是神。他又使我如法老的父,作他全家的主,并埃及全地的宰相。

So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.

45:9 你们要赶紧上到我父亲那里。对他说,你儿子约瑟这样说,神使我作全埃及的主,请你下到我这里来,不要耽延。

Haste ye, and go up to my father, and say unto him, Thus saith thy son Joseph, God hath made me lord of all Egypt: come down unto me, tarry not:

45:10 你和你我儿子孙子,连牛群羊群,并一切所有的,都可以住在歌珊地,与我相近。

And thou shalt dwell in the land of Goshen, and thou shalt be near unto me, thou, and thy children, and thy children's children, and thy flocks, and thy herds, and all that thou hast:

45:11 我要在那里奉养你。因为还有五年的饥荒,免得你和你的眷属,并一切所有的,都败落了。

And there will I nourish thee; for yet there are five years of famine; lest thou, and thy household, and all that thou hast, come to poverty.

45:12 况且你们的眼和我兄弟便雅悯的眼都看见是我亲口对你们说话。

And, behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth that speaketh unto you.

45:13 你们也要将我在埃及一切的荣耀和你们所看见的事都告诉我父亲,又要赶紧地将我父亲搬到我这里来。

And ye shall tell my father of all my glory in Egypt, and of all that ye have seen; and ye shall haste and bring down my father hither.

45:14 于是约瑟伏在他兄弟便雅悯的颈项上哭,便雅悯也在他的颈项上哭。

And he fell upon his brother Benjamin's neck, and wept; and Benjamin wept upon his neck.

45:15 他又与众弟兄亲嘴,抱着他们哭,随后他弟兄就和他说话。

Moreover he kissed all his brethren, and wept upon them: and after that his brethren talked with him.

45:16 这风声传到法老的宫里,说,约瑟的弟兄们来了。法老和他的臣仆都很喜欢。

And the fame thereof was heard in Pharaoh's house, saying, Joseph's brethren are come: and it pleased Pharaoh well, and his servants.

45:17 法老对约瑟说,你吩咐你的弟兄们说,你们要这样行,把驮子抬在牲口上,起身往迦南地去。

And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Say unto thy brethren, This do ye; lade your beasts, and go, get you unto the land of Canaan;

45:18 将你们的父亲和你们的眷属都搬到我这里来,我要把埃及地的美物赐给你们,你们也要吃这地肥美的出产。

And take your father and your households, and come unto me: and I will give you the good of the land of Egypt, and ye shall eat the fat of the land.

45:19 现在我吩咐你们要这样行,从埃及地带着车辆去,把你们的孩子和妻子,并你们的父亲都搬来。

Now thou art commanded, this do ye; take you wagons out of the land of Egypt for your little ones, and for your wives, and bring your father, and come.

45:20 你们眼中不要爱惜你们的家具,因为埃及全地的美物都是你们的。

Also regard not your stuff; for the good of all the land of Egypt is yours.

45:21 以色列的儿子们就如此行。约瑟照着法老的吩咐给他们车辆和路上用的食物,

And the children of Israel did so: and Joseph gave them wagons, according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them provision for the way.

45:22 又给他们各人一套衣服,惟独给便雅悯三百银子,五套衣服。

To all of them he gave each man changes of raiment; but to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver, and five changes of raiment.

45:23 送给他父亲公驴十匹,驮着埃及的美物,母驴十匹,驮着粮食与饼和菜,为他父亲路上用。

And to his father he sent after this manner; ten asses laden with the good things of Egypt, and ten she asses laden with corn and bread and meat for his father by the way.

45:24 于是约瑟打发他弟兄们回去,又对他们说,你们不要在路上相争。

So he sent his brethren away, and they departed: and he said unto them, See that ye fall not out by the way.

45:25 他们从埃及上去,来到迦南地,他们的父亲雅各那里,

And they went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of Canaan unto Jacob their father,

45:26 告诉他说,约瑟还在,并且作埃及全地的宰相。雅各心里冰凉,因为不信他们。

And told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt. And Jacob's heart fainted, for he believed them not.

45:27 他们便将约瑟对他们说的一切话都告诉了他。他们父亲雅各又看见约瑟打发来接他的车辆,心就苏醒了。

And they told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said unto them: and when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived:

45:28 以色列说,吧了。吧了。我的儿子约瑟还在,趁我未死以先,我要去见他一面。

And Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I will go and see him before I die.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第46 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

46:1 以色列带着一切所有的,起身来到别是巴,就献祭给他父亲以撒的神。

And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to Beersheba, and offered sacrifices unto the God of his father Isaac.

46:2 夜间,神在异象中对以色列说,雅各。雅各。他说,我在这里。

And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.

46:3 神说,我是神,就是你父亲的神。你下埃及去不要害怕,因为我必使你在那里成为大族。

And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation:

46:4 我要和你同下埃及去,也必定带你上来。约瑟必给你送终(原文作将手按你的眼睛上)。

I will go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also surely bring thee up again: and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine eyes.

46:5 雅各就从别是巴起行。以色列的儿子们使他们的父亲雅各和他们的妻子,儿女都坐在法老为雅各送来的车上。

And Jacob rose up from Beersheba: and the sons of Israel carried Jacob their father, and their little ones, and their wives, in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him.

46:6 他们又带着迦南地所得的牲畜,货财来到埃及。雅各和他的一切子孙都一同来了,

And they took their cattle, and their goods, which they had gotten in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt, Jacob, and all his seed with him:

46:7 雅各把他的儿子,孙子,女儿,孙女,并他的子子孙孙,一同带到埃及。

His sons, and his sons' sons with him, his daughters, and his sons' daughters, and all his seed brought he with him into Egypt.

These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to Leah his daughter, and these she bare unto Jacob, even sixteen souls.

46:19 雅各之妻拉结的儿子是约瑟和便雅悯。

All the souls that came with Jacob into Egypt, which came out of his loins, besides Jacob's sons' wives, all the souls were threescore and six;

46:27 还有约瑟在埃及所生的两个儿子。雅各家来到埃及的共有七十人。

And the sons of Joseph, which were born him in Egypt, were two souls: all the souls of the house of Jacob, which came into Egypt, were threescore and ten.

46:28 雅各打发犹大先去见约瑟,请派人引路往歌珊去。于是他们来到歌珊地。

And he sent Judah before him unto Joseph, to direct his face unto Goshen; and they came into the land of Goshen.

46:29 约瑟套车往歌珊去,迎接他父亲以色列,及至见了面,就伏在父亲的颈项,哭了许久。

And Joseph made ready his chariot, and went up to meet Israel his father, to Goshen, and presented himself unto him; and he fell on his neck, and wept on his neck a good while.

46:30 以色列对约瑟说,我既得见你的面,知道你还在,就是死我也甘心。

And Israel said unto Joseph, Now let me die, since I have seen thy face, because thou art yet alive.

46:31 约瑟对他的弟兄和他父的全家说,我要上去告诉法老,对他说,我的弟兄和我父的全家从前在迦南地,现今都到我这里来了。

And Joseph said unto his brethren, and unto his father's house, I will go up, and shew Pharaoh, and say unto him, My brethren, and my father's house, which were in the land of Canaan, are come unto me;

46:32 他们本是牧羊的人,以养牲畜为业。他们把羊群牛群和一切所有的都带来了。

And the men are shepherds, for their trade hath been to feed cattle; and they have brought their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have.

46:33 等法老召你们的时候,问你们说,你们以何事为业。

And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh shall call you, and shall say, What is your occupation?

46:34 你们要说,你的仆人,从幼年直到如今,都以养牲畜为业,连我们的祖宗也都以此为业。这样,你们可以住在歌珊地,因为凡牧羊的都被埃及人所厌恶。

That ye shall say, Thy servants' trade hath been about cattle from our youth even until now, both we, and also our fathers: that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egyptians.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第47 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

47:1 约瑟进去告诉法老说,我的父亲和我的弟兄带着羊群牛群,并一切所有的,从迦南地来了,如今在歌珊地。

Then Joseph came and told Pharaoh, and said, My father and my brethren, and their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have, are come out of the land of Canaan; and, behold, they are in the land of Goshen.

47:2 约瑟从他弟兄中挑出五个人来,引他们去见法老。

And he took some of his brethren, even five men, and presented them unto Pharaoh.

47:3 法老问约瑟的弟兄说,你们以可事为业,他们对法老说,你仆人是牧羊的,连我们的祖宗也是牧羊的。

And Pharaoh said unto his brethren, What is your occupation? And they said unto Pharaoh, Thy servants are shepherds, both we, and also our fathers.

47:4 他们又对法老说,迦南地的饥荒甚大,仆人的羊群没有草吃,所以我们来到这地寄居。现在求你容仆人住在歌珊地。

They said moreover unto Pharaoh, For to sojourn in the land are we come; for thy servants have no pasture for their flocks; for the famine is sore in the land of Canaan: now therefore, we pray thee, let thy servants dwell in the land of Goshen.

47:5 法老对约瑟说,你父亲和你弟兄到你这里来了,

And Pharaoh spake unto Joseph, saying, Thy father and thy brethren are come unto thee:

47:6 埃及地都在你面前,只管叫你父亲和你弟兄住在国中最好的地。他们可以住在歌珊地。你若知道他们中间有什么能人,就派他们看管我的牲畜。

The land of Egypt is before thee; in the best of the land make thy father and brethren to dwell; in the land of Goshen let them dwell: and if thou knowest any men of activity among them, then make them rulers over my cattle.

47:7 约瑟领他父亲雅各进到法老面前,雅各就给法老祝福。

And Joseph brought in Jacob his father, and set him before Pharaoh: and Jacob blessed Pharaoh.

47:8 法老问雅各说,你平生的年日是多少呢,

And Pharaoh said unto Jacob, How old art thou?

47:9 雅各对法老说,我寄居在世的年日是一百三十岁,我平生的年日又少又苦,不及我列祖早在世寄居的年日。

And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.

47:10 雅各又给法老祝福,就从法老面前出去了。

And Jacob blessed Pharaoh, and went out from before Pharaoh.

47:11 约瑟遵着法老的命,把埃及国最好的地,就是兰塞境内的地,给他父亲和弟兄居住,作为产业。

And Joseph placed his father and his brethren, and gave them a possession in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land of Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded.

47:12 约瑟用粮食奉养他父亲和他弟兄,并他父亲全家的眷属,都是照各家的人口奉养他们。

And Joseph nourished his father, and his brethren, and all his father's household, with bread, according to their families.

47:13 饥荒甚大,全地都绝了粮,甚至埃及地和迦南地的人因那饥荒的缘故都饿昏了。

And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted by reason of the famine.

47:14 约瑟收聚了埃及地和迦南地所有的银子,就是众人籴粮的银子,约瑟就把那银子带到法老的宫里。

And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house.

47:15 埃及地和迦南地的银子都花尽了,埃及众人都来见约瑟,说,我们的银子都用尽了,求你给我们粮食,我们为什么死在你面前呢。

And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread: for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth.

47:16 约瑟说,若是银子用尽了,可以把你们的牲畜给我,我就为你们的牲畜给你们粮食。

And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for your cattle, if money fail.

47:17 于是他们把牲畜赶到约瑟那里,约瑟就拿粮食换了他们的牛,羊,驴,马。那一年因换他们一切的牲畜,就用粮食养活他们。

And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for that year.

47:18 那一年过去,第二年他们又来见约瑟,说,我们不瞒我主,我们的银子都花尽了,牲畜也都归了我主。我们在我主眼前,除了我们的身体和田地之外,一无所剩。

When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year, and said unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money is spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not ought left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:

47:19 你何忍见我们人死地荒呢。求你用粮食买我们的我们的地,我们和我们的地就要给法老效力。又求你给我们种子,使我们得以存活,不至死亡,地土也不至荒凉。

Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.

47:20 于是,约瑟为法老买了埃及所有的地,埃及人因被饥荒所迫,各都卖了自己的田地。那地就都归了法老。

And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh's.

47:21 至于百姓,约瑟叫他们,从埃及赦边直到埃及那边,都各归各城。

And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.

47:22 惟有祭司的地,约瑟没有买,因为祭司有从法老所得的常俸。他们吃法老所给的常俸,所以他们不卖自己的地。

Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests had a portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands.

47:23 约瑟对百姓说,我今日为法老买了你们和你们的地,看哪,这里有种子给你们,你们可以种地。

Then Joseph said unto the people, Behold, I have bought you this day and your land for Pharaoh: lo, here is seed for you, and ye shall sow the land.

47:24 后来打粮食的时候,你们要把五分之一纳给法老,四分可以归你们作地里的种子,也作你们和你们家口孩童的食物。

And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give the fifth part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for food for your little ones.

47:25 他们说,你救了我们的性命。但愿我们在我主眼前蒙恩,我们就作法老的仆人。

And they said, Thou hast saved our lives: let us find grace in the sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh's servants.

47:26 于是约瑟为埃及地定下常例,直到今日,法老必得五分之一,惟独祭司的地不归法老。

And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt unto this day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth part; except the land of the priests only, which became not Pharaoh's.

47:27 以色列人住在埃及的歌珊地。他们在那里置了产业,并且生育甚多。

And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen; and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied exceedingly.

47:28 雅各住在埃及地十七年,雅各平生的年日是一百四十七岁。

And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years: so the whole age of Jacob was an hundred forty and seven years.

47:29 以色列的死期临近了,他就叫了他儿子约瑟来,说,我若在你眼前蒙恩,请你把手放在我大腿底下,用慈爱和诚实待我,请你不要将我葬在埃及。

And the time drew nigh that Israel must die: and he called his son Joseph, and said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy sight, put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh, and deal kindly and truly with me; bury me not, I pray thee, in Egypt:

47:30 我与我祖我父同睡的时候,你要将我带出埃及,葬在他们所葬的地方。约瑟说,我必遵着你的命而行。

But I will lie with my fathers, and thou shalt carry me out of Egypt, and bury me in their buryingplace. And he said, I will do as thou hast said.

47:31 雅各说,你要向我起誓。约瑟就向他起了誓,于是以色列在床头上(或作扶着杖头)敬拜神。

And he said, Swear unto me. And he sware unto him. And Israel bowed himself upon the bed's head.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第48 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

48:1 这事以后,有人告诉约瑟说,你的父亲病了。他就带着两个儿子玛拿西和以法莲同去。

And it came to pass after these things, that one told Joseph, Behold, thy father is sick: and he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim.

48:2 有人告诉雅各说,请看,你儿子约瑟到你这里来了。以色列就勉强在床上坐起来。

And one told Jacob, and said, Behold, thy son Joseph cometh unto thee: and Israel strengthened himself, and sat upon the bed.

48:3 雅各对约瑟说,全能的神曾在迦南地的路斯向我显现,赐福与我,

And Jacob said unto Joseph, God Almighty appeared unto me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me,

48:4 对我说,我必使你生养众多,成为多民,又要把这地赐给你的后裔,永远为业。

And said unto me, Behold, I will make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, and I will make of thee a multitude of people; and will give this land to thy seed after thee for an everlasting possession.

48:5 我未到埃及见你之先,你在埃及地所生的以法莲和玛拿西这两个儿子是我的,正如流便和西缅是我的一样。

And now thy two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were born unto thee in the land of Egypt before I came unto thee into Egypt, are mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine.

48:6 你在他们以后所生的就是你的,他们可以归于他们弟兄的名下得产业。

And thy issue, which thou begettest after them, shall be thine, and shall be called after the name of their brethren in their inheritance.

48:7 至于我,我从巴旦来的时候,拉结死在我眼前,在迦南地的路上,离以法他还有一段路程,我就把她葬在以法他的路上。以法他就是伯利恒。

And as for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died by me in the land of Canaan in the way, when yet there was but a little way to come unto Ephrath: and I buried her there in the way of Ephrath; the same is Bethlehem.

48:8 以色列看见约瑟的两个儿子,就说,这是谁,

And Israel beheld Joseph's sons, and said, Who are these?

48:9 约瑟对他父亲说,这是神在这里赐给我的儿子。以色列说,请你领他们到我跟前,我要给他们祝福。

And Joseph said unto his father, They are my sons, whom God hath given me in this place. And he said, Bring them, I pray thee, unto me, and I will bless them.

48:10 以色列年纪老迈,眼睛昏花,不能看见。约瑟领他们到他跟前,他就和他们亲嘴,抱着他们。

Now the eyes of Israel were dim for age, so that he could not see. And he brought them near unto him; and he kissed them, and embraced them.

48:11 以色列对约瑟说,我想不到得见你的面,不料,神又使我得见你的儿子。

And Israel said unto Joseph, I had not thought to see thy face: and, lo, God hath shewed me also thy seed.

48:12 约瑟把两个儿子从以色列两膝中领出来,自己就脸伏于地下拜。

And Joseph brought them out from between his knees, and he bowed himself with his face to the earth.

48:13 随后,约瑟又拉着他们两个,以法莲在他的右手里,对着以色列的左手,玛拿西在他的左手里,对着以色列的右手,领他们到以色列的跟前。

And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel's left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israel's right hand, and brought them near unto him.

48:14 以色列伸出右手来,按在以法莲的头上,以法莲乃是次子。又剪搭过左手来,按在玛拿西的头上,玛拿西原是长子。

And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh's head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn.

48:15 他就给约瑟祝福说,愿我祖亚伯拉罕和我父以撒所事奉的神,就是一生牧养我直到今日的神,

And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto this day,

48:16 救赎我脱离一切患难的那使者,赐福与这两个童子。愿他们归在我的名下和我祖亚伯拉罕,我父以撒的名下。又愿他们在世界中生养众多。

The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.

48:17 约瑟见他父亲把右手按在以法莲的头上,就不喜悦,便提起他父亲的手,要从以法莲的头上挪到玛拿西的头上。

And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held up his father's hand, to remove it from Ephraim's head unto Manasseh's head.

48:18 约瑟对他父亲说,我父,不是这样。这本是长子,求你把右手按在他的头上。

And Joseph said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this is the firstborn; put thy right hand upon his head.

48:19 他父亲不从,说,我知道,我儿,我知道。他也必成为一族,也必昌大。只是他的兄弟将来比他还大。他兄弟的后裔要成为多族。

And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations.

48:20 当日就给他们祝福说,以色列人要指着你们祝福说,愿神使你如以法莲,玛拿西一样。于是立以法莲在玛拿西以上。

And he blessed them that day, saying, In thee shall Israel bless, saying, God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he set Ephraim before Manasseh.

48:21 以色列又对约瑟说,我要死了,但神必与你们同在,领你们回到你们列祖之地。

And Israel said unto Joseph, Behold, I die: but God shall be with you, and bring you again unto the land of your fathers.

48:22 并且我从前用弓用刀从亚摩利人手下夺的那块地,我都赐给你,使你比众弟兄多得一分。

Moreover I have given to thee one portion above thy brethren, which I took out of the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第49 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

49:1 雅各叫了他的儿子们来,说,你们都来聚集,我好把你们日后必遇的事告诉你们。

And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.

49:2 雅各的儿子们,你们要聚集而听,要听你们父亲以色列的话。

Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father.

49:3 流便哪,你是我的长子,是我力量强壮的时候生的,本当大有尊荣,权力超众。

Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:

49:4 但你放纵情欲,滚沸如水,必不得居首位。因为你上了你父亲的床,污秽了我的榻。

Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father's bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.

49:5 西缅和利未是弟兄。他们的刀剑是残忍的器具。

Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.

49:6 我的灵阿,不要与他们同谋。我的心哪,不要与他们联络。因为他们趁怒杀害人命,任意砍断牛腿大筋。

O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.

49:7 他们的怒气暴烈可咒。他们的忿恨残忍可诅。我要使他们分居在雅各家里,散住在以色列地中。

Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.

49:8 犹大阿,你弟兄们必赞美你。你手必掐住仇敌的颈项。你父亲的儿子们必向你下拜。

Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee.

49:9 犹大是个小狮子。我儿阿,你抓了食便上去。你屈下身去,卧如公狮,蹲如母狮,谁敢惹你。

Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?

49:10 圭必不离犹大,杖必不离他两脚之间,直等细罗(就是赐平安者)来到,万民都必归顺。

The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

49:11 犹大把小驴拴在葡萄树上,把驴驹拴在美好的葡萄树上。他在葡萄酒中洗了衣服,在葡萄汁中洗了袍褂。

Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:

49:12 他的眼睛必因酒红润。他的牙齿必因奶白亮。

His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.

49:13 西布伦必住在海口,必成为停船的海口。他的境界必延到西顿。

Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for an haven of ships; and his border shall be unto Zidon.

49:14 以萨迦是个强壮的驴,卧在羊圈之中。

Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens:

49:15 他以安静为佳,以肥地为美,便低肩背重,成为服苦的仆人。

And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute.

49:16 但必判断他的民,作以色列支派之一。

Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.

49:17 但必作道上的蛇,路中的虺,咬伤马蹄,使骑马的坠落于后。

Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

49:18 耶和华阿,我向来等候你的救恩。

I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD.

49:19 迦得必被敌军追逼,他却要追逼他们的脚跟。

Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.

49:20 亚设之地必出肥美的粮食,且出君王的美味。

Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.

49:21 拿弗他利是被释放的母鹿。他出嘉美的言语。

Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words.

49:22 约瑟是多结果子的树枝,是泉旁多结果的枝子。他的枝条探出墙外。

Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall:

49:23 弓箭手将他苦害,向他射箭,逼迫他。

The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:

49:24 但他的弓仍旧坚硬。他的手健壮敏捷。这是因以色列的牧者,以色列的磐石就是雅各的大能者。

But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)

49:25 你父亲的神必帮助你。那全能者必将天上所有的福,地里所藏的福,以及生产乳养的福,都赐给你。

Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:

49:26 你父亲所祝的福,胜过我祖先所祝的福,如永世的山岭,至极的边界。这些福必降在约瑟的头上,临列那与弟兄迥别之人的顶上。

The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.

49:27 便雅悯是个撕掠的狼,早晨要吃他所抓的,晚上要分他所夺的。

Benjamin shall ravin as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.

49:28 这一切是以色列的十二支派。这也是他们的父亲对他们所说的话,为他们所祝的福,都是按着各人的福分为他们祝福。

All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them.

49:29 他又嘱咐他们说,我将要归到我列祖(原文作本民)那里,你们要将我葬在赫人以弗仑田间的洞里,与我祖我父在一处,

And he charged them, and said unto them, I am to be gathered unto my people: bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite,

49:30 就是在迦南地幔利前,麦比拉田间的洞。那洞和田是亚伯拉罕向赫人以弗仑买来为业,作坟地的。

In the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is before Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field of Ephron the Hittite for a possession of a buryingplace.

49:31 他们在那里葬了亚伯拉罕和他妻撒拉,又在那里葬了以撒和他的妻子利百加。我也在那里葬了利亚。

There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah.

49:32 那块田和田间的洞原是向赫人买的。

The purchase of the field and of the cave that is therein was from the children of Heth.

49:33 雅各嘱咐众子已毕,就把脚收在床上,气绝而死,归到列祖(原文作本民)那里去了。

And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his people.

旧约-- 创世记(Genesis) -- 第50 章( 本篇共有50 章)[]

50:1 约瑟伏在他父亲的面上哀哭,与他亲嘴。

And Joseph fell upon his father's face, and wept upon him, and kissed him.

50:2 约瑟吩咐伺候他的医生用香料薰他父亲,医生就用香料薰了以色列。

And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father: and the physicians embalmed Israel.

50:3 薰尸的常例是四十天。那四十天满了,埃及人为他哀哭了七十天。

And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those which are embalmed: and the Egyptians mourned for him threescore and ten days.

50:4 为他哀哭的日子过了,约瑟对法老家中的人说,我若在你们眼前蒙恩,请你们报告法老说,

And when the days of his mourning were past, Joseph spake unto the house of Pharaoh, saying, If now I have found grace in your eyes, speak, I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying,

50:5 我父亲要死的时候叫我起誓说,你要将我葬在迦南地,在我为自己所掘的坟墓里。现在求你让我上去葬我父亲,以后我必回来。

My father made me swear, saying, Lo, I die: in my grave which I have digged for me in the land of Canaan, there shalt thou bury me. Now therefore let me go up, I pray thee, and bury my father, and I will come again.

50:6 法老说,你可以上去,照着你父亲叫你起的誓,将他葬埋。

And Pharaoh said, Go up, and bury thy father, according as he made thee swear.

50:7 于是约瑟上去葬他父亲。与他一同上去的,有法老的臣仆和法老家中的长老,并埃及国的长老,

And Joseph went up to bury his father: and with him went up all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, and all the elders of the land of Egypt,

50:8 还有约瑟的全家和他的弟兄们,并他父亲的眷属。只有他们的妇人孩子,和羊群牛群,都留在歌珊地。

And all the house of Joseph, and his brethren, and his father's house: only their little ones, and their flocks, and their herds, they left in the land of Goshen.

50:9 又有车辆马兵,和他一同上去。那一帮人甚多。

And there went up with him both chariots and horsemen: and it was a very great company.

50:10 他们到了约旦河外,亚达的禾场,就在那里大大地号啕痛哭。约瑟为他父亲哀哭了七天。

And they came to the threshingfloor of Atad, which is beyond Jordan, and there they mourned with a great and very sore lamentation: and he made a mourning for his father seven days.

50:11 迦南的居民见亚达禾场上的哀哭,就说,这是埃及人一场大的哀哭。因此那地方名叫亚伯麦西,是在约旦河东。

And when the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, saw the mourning in the floor of Atad, they said, This is a grievous mourning to the Egyptians: wherefore the name of it was called Abelmizraim, which is beyond Jordan.

50:12 雅各的儿子们就遵着他父亲所吩咐的办了,

And his sons did unto him according as he commanded them:

50:13 把他搬到迦南地,葬在幔利前,麦比拉田间的洞里。那洞和田是亚伯拉罕向赫人以弗仑买来为业,作坟地的。

For his sons carried him into the land of Canaan, and buried him in the cave of the field of Machpelah, which Abraham bought with the field for a possession of a buryingplace of Ephron the Hittite, before Mamre.

50:14 约瑟葬了他父亲以后,就和众弟兄,并一切同他上去葬他父亲的人,都回埃及去了。

And Joseph returned into Egypt, he, and his brethren, and all that went up with him to bury his father, after he had buried his father.

50:15 约瑟的哥哥们见父亲死了,就说,或者约瑟怀恨我们,照着我们从前待他一切的恶足足地报复我们。

And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him.

50:16 他们就打发人去见约瑟,说,你父亲未死以先吩咐说,

And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying,

50:17 你们要对约瑟这样说,从前你哥哥们恶待你,求你饶恕他们的过犯和罪恶。如今求你饶恕你父亲神之仆人的过犯。他们对约瑟说这话,约瑟就哭了。

So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him.

50:18 他的哥哥们又来俯伏在他面前,说,我们是你的仆人。

And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants.

50:19 约瑟对他们说,不要害怕,我岂能代替神呢。

And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?

50:20 从前你们的意思是要害我,但神的意思原是好的,要保全许多人的性命,成就今日的光景。

But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

50:21 现在你们不要害怕,我必养活你们和你们的妇人孩子。于是约瑟用亲爱的话安慰他们。

Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.

50:22 约瑟和他父亲的眷属都住在埃及。约瑟活了一百一十岁。

And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and Joseph lived an hundred and ten years.

50:23 约瑟得见以法莲第三代的子孙。玛拿西的孙子,玛吉的儿子也养在约瑟的膝上。

And Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third generation: the children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were brought up upon Joseph's knees.

50:24 约瑟对他弟兄们说,我要死了,但神必定看顾你们,领你们从这地上去,到他起誓所应许给亚伯拉罕,以撒,雅各之地。

And Joseph said unto his brethren, I die: and God will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land unto the land which he sware to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.

50:25 约瑟叫以色列的子孙起誓说,神必定看顾你们。你们要把我的骸骨从这里搬上去。

And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence.

50:26 约瑟死了,正一百一十岁。人用香料将他薰了,把他收殓在棺材里,停在埃及。

So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.

旧约 -- 出埃及记(Exodus) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 40 章 )[]

1:1 以色列的众子,各带家眷和雅各一同来到埃及,他们的名字记在下面。

Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob.

1:2 有流便,西缅,利未,犹大,

Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,

1:3 以萨迦,西布伦,便雅悯,

Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,

1:4 但,拿弗他利,迦得,亚设。

Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.

1:5 凡从雅各而生的,共有七十人。约瑟已经在埃及。

And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.

1:6 约瑟和他的弟兄,并那一代的人都死了。

And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.

1:7 以色列人生养众多,并且繁茂,极其强盛,满了那地。

And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.

1:8 有不认识约瑟的新王起来,治理埃及,

Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.

1:9 对他的百姓说,看哪,这以色列民比我们还多,又比我们强盛。

And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we:

1:10 来吧,我们不如用巧计待他们,恐怕他们多起来,日后若遇什么争战的事,就连合我们的仇敌攻击我们,离开这地去了。

Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land.

1:11 于是埃及人派督工的辖制他们,加重担苦害他们。他们为法老建造两座积货城,就是比东和兰塞。

Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses.

1:12 只是越发苦害他们,他们越发多起来,越发蔓延,埃及人就因以色列人愁烦。

But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.

1:13 埃及人严严地使以色列人作工,

And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour:

1:14 使他们因作苦工觉得命苦,无论是和泥,是作砖,是作田间各样的工,在一切的工上都严严地待他们。

And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.

1:15 有希伯来的两个收生婆,一名施弗拉,一名普阿,埃及王对她们说,

And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah:

1:16 你们为希伯来妇人收生,看她们临盆的时候,若是男孩,就把他杀了,若是女孩,就留她存活。

And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live.

1:17 但是收生婆敬畏神,不照埃及王的吩咐行,竟存留男孩的性命。

But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.

1:18 埃及王召了收生婆来,说,你们为什么作这事,存留男孩的性命呢。

And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive?

1:19 收生婆对法老说,因为希伯来妇人与埃及妇人不同,希伯来妇人本是健壮的(原文作活泼的),收生婆还没有到,她们已经生产了。

And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them.

1:20 神厚待收生婆。以色列人多起来,极其强盛。

Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty.

1:21 收生婆因为敬畏神,神便叫她们成立家室。

And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses.

1:22 法老吩咐他的众民说,以色列人所生的男孩,你们都要丢在河里,一切的女孩,你们要存留她的性命。

And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.

旧约 -- 出埃及记(Exodus) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 40 章 )[]

2:1 有一个利未家的人娶了一个利未女子为妻。

And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi.

2:2 那女人怀孕,生一个儿子,见他俊美,就藏了他三个月,

And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.

2:3 后来不能再藏,就取了一个蒲草箱,抹上石漆和石油,将孩子放在里头,把箱子搁在河边的芦荻中。

And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river's brink.

2:4 孩子的姊姊远远站着,要知道他究竟怎吗样。

And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him.

2:5 法老的女儿来到河边洗澡,她的使女们在河边行走。她看见箱子在芦荻中,就打发一个婢女拿来。

And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river's side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.

2:6 她打开箱子,看见那孩子。孩子哭了,她就可怜他,说,这是希伯来人的一个孩子。

And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews' children.

2:7 孩子的姊姊对法老的女儿说,我去在希伯来妇人中叫一个奶妈来,为你奶这孩子,可以不可以。

Then said his sister to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee?

2:8 法老的女儿说,可以。童女就去叫了孩子的母亲来。

And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child's mother.

2:9 法老的女儿对她说,你把这孩子抱去,为我奶他,我必给你工价。妇人就抱了孩子去奶他。

And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the woman took the child, and nursed it.

2:10 孩子渐长,妇人把他带到法老的女儿那里,就作了她的儿子。她给孩子起名叫摩西,意思说,因我把他从水里拉出来。

And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.

2:11 后来,摩西长大,他出去到他弟兄那里,看他们的重担,见一个埃及人打希伯来人的一个弟兄。

And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brethren.

2:12 他左右观看,见没有人,就把埃及人打死了,藏在沙土里。

And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.

2:13 第二天他出去,见有两个希伯来人争斗,就对那欺负人的说,你为什么打你同族的人呢。

And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?

2:14 那人说,谁立你作我们的首领和审判官呢,难道你要杀我,像杀那埃及人吗。摩西便惧怕,说,这事必是被人知道了。

And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us? intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known.

2:15 法老听见这事,就想杀摩西,但摩西躲避法老,逃往米甸地居住。

Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well.

2:16 一日,他在井旁坐下。米甸的祭司有七个女儿,她们来打水,打满了槽,要饮父亲的群羊。

Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father's flock.

2:17 有牧羊的人来,把她们赶走了,摩西却起来帮助她们,又饮了她们的群羊。

And the shepherds came and drove them away: but Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock.

2:18 她们来到父亲流珥那里,他说,今日你们为何来得这吗快呢。

And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How is it that ye are come so soon to day?

2:19 她们说,有一个埃及人救我们脱离牧羊人的手,并且为我们打水饮了群羊。

And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered the flock.

2:20 他对女儿们说,那个人在哪里,你们为什么撇下他呢。你们去请他来吃饭。

And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? why is it that ye have left the man? call him, that he may eat bread.

2:21 摩西甘心和那人同住,那人把他的女儿西坡拉给摩西为妻。

And Moses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave Moses Zipporah his daughter.

2:22 西坡拉生了一个儿子,摩西给他起名叫革舜,意思说,因我在外邦作了寄居的。

And she bare him a son, and he called his name Gershom: for he said, I have been a stranger in a strange land.

2:23 过了多年,埃及王死了。以色列人因作苦工,就叹息哀求,他们的哀声达于神。

And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.

2:24 神听见他们的哀声,就记念他与亚伯拉罕,以撒,雅各所立的约。

And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

2:25 神看顾以色列人,也知道他们的苦情。

And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto them.

旧约 -- 出埃及记(Exodus) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 40 章 )[]

3:1 摩西牧养他岳父米甸祭司叶忒罗的羊群,一日领羊群往野外去,到了神的山,就是何烈山。

Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.

3:2 耶和华的使者从荆棘里火焰中向摩西显现。摩西观看,不料,荆棘被火烧着,却没有烧毁。

And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

3:3 摩西说,我要过去看这大异象,这荆棘为何没有烧坏呢。

And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.

3:4 耶和华神见他过去要看,就从荆棘里呼叫说,摩西,摩西。他说,我在这里。

And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

3:5 神说,不要近前来。当把你脚上的鞋脱下来,因为你所站之地是圣地。

And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.

3:6 又说,我是你父亲的神,是亚伯拉罕的神,以撒的神,雅各的神。摩西蒙上脸,因为怕看神。

Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.

3:7 耶和华说,我的百姓在埃及所受的困苦,我实在看见了,他们因受督工的辖制所发的哀声,我也听见了。我原知道他们的痛苦,

And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;

3:8 我下来是要救他们脱离埃及人的手,领他们出了那地,,到美好,宽阔,流奶与蜜之地,就是到迦南人,赫人,亚摩利人,比利洗人,希未人,耶布斯人之地。

And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.

3:9 现在以色列人的哀声达到我耳中,我也看见埃及人怎样欺压他们。

Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them.

3:10 故此,我要打发你去见法老,使你可以将我的百姓以色列人从埃及领出来。

Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.

3:11 摩西对神说,我是什么人,竟能去见法老,将以色列人从埃及领出来呢。

And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?

3:12 神说,我必与你同在。你将百姓从埃及领出来之后,你们必在这山上事奉我,这就是我打发你去的证据。

And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.

3:13 摩西对神说,我到以色列人那里,对他们说,你们祖宗的神打发我到你们这里来。他们若问我说,他叫什么名字,我要对他们说什么呢。

And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?

3:14 神对摩西说,我是自有永有的。又说,你要对以色列人这样说,那自有的打发我到你们这里来。

And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

3:15 神又对摩西说,你要对以色列人这样说,耶和华你们祖宗的神,就是亚伯拉罕的神,以撒的神,雅各的神,打发我到你们这里来。耶和华是我的名,直到永远,这也是我的纪念,直到万代。

And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

3:16 你去招聚以色列的长老,对他们说,耶和华你们祖宗的神,就是亚伯拉罕的神,以撒的神,雅各的神,向我显现,说,我实在眷顾了你们,我也看见埃及人怎样待你们。

Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared unto me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt:

3:17 我也说,要将你们从埃及的困苦中领出来,往迦南人,赫人,亚摩利人,比利洗人,希未人,耶布斯人的地去,就是到流奶与蜜之地。

And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt unto the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, unto a land flowing with milk and honey.

3:18 他们必听你的话。你和以色列的长老要去见埃及王,对他说,耶和华希伯来人的神遇见了我们,现在求你容我们往旷野去,走三天的路程,为要祭祀耶和华我们的神。

And they shall hearken to thy voice: and thou shalt come, thou and the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and ye shall say unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews hath met with us: and now let us go, we beseech thee, three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God.

3:19 我知道虽用大能的手,埃及王也不容你们去。

And I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no, not by a mighty hand.

3:20 我必伸手在埃及中间施行我一切的奇事,攻击那地,然后他才容你乔去。

And I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will let you go.

3:21 我必叫你们在埃及人眼前蒙恩,你们去的时候就不至于空手而去。

And I will give this people favour in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty:

3:22 但各妇女必向她的邻舍,并居住在她家里的女人,要金器银器和衣裳,好给你们的儿女穿戴。这样你们就把埃及人的财物夺去了。

But every woman shall borrow of her neighbour, and of her that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: and ye shall put them upon your sons, and upon your daughters; and ye shall spoil the Egyptians.

旧约 -- 出埃及记(Exodus) -- 第 4 章 ( 本篇共有 40 章 )[]

4:1 摩西回答说,他们必不信我,也不听我的话,必说,耶和华并没有向你显现。

And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The LORD hath not appeared unto thee.

4:2 耶和华对摩西说,你手里是什么。他说,是杖。

And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod.

4:3 耶和华说,丢在地上。他一丢下去,就变作蛇,摩西便跑开。

And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it.

4:4 耶和华对摩西说,伸出手来,拿住它的尾巴,它必在你手中仍变为杖,

And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand:

4:5 如此好叫他们信耶和华他们祖宗的神,就是亚伯拉罕的神,以撒的神,雅各的神,是向你显现了。

That they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath appeared unto thee.

4:6 耶和华又对他说,把手放在怀里。他就把手放在怀里,及至抽出来,不料,手长了大麻疯,有雪那样白。

And the LORD said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow.

4:7 耶和华说,再把手放在怀里。他就再把手放在怀里,及至从怀里抽出来,不料,手已经复原,与周身的肉一样,

And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put his hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and, behold, it was turned again as his other flesh.

4:8 又说,倘或他们不听你的话,也不信头一个神迹,他们必信第二个神迹。

And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign.

4:9 这两个神迹若都不信,也不听你的话,你就从河里取些水,倒在旱地上,你从河里取的水必在旱地上变作血。

And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also these two signs, neither hearken unto thy voice, that thou shalt take of the water of the river, and pour it upon the dry land: and the water which thou takest out of the river shall become blood upon the dry land.

4:10 摩西对耶和华说,主阿,我素日不是能言的人,就是从你对仆人说话以后,也是这样。我本是拙口笨舌的。

And Moses said unto the LORD, O my LORD, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.

4:11 耶和华对他说,谁造人的口呢,谁使人口哑,耳聋,目明,眼瞎呢,岂不是我耶和华吗。

And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?

4:12 现在去吧,我必赐你口才,指教你所当说的话。

Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.

4:13 摩西说,主阿,你愿意打发谁,就打发谁去吧。

And he said, O my LORD, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send.

4:14 耶和华向摩西发怒说,不是有你的哥哥利未人亚伦吗,我知道他是能言的,现在他出来迎接你,他一见你,心里就欢喜。

And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart.

4:15 你要将当说的话传给他,我也要赐你和他口才,又要指教你们所当行的事。

And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.

4:16 他要替你对百姓说话,你要以他当作口,他要以你当作神。

And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead of God.

4:17 你手里要拿这杖,好行神迹。

And thou shalt take this rod in thine hand, wherewith thou shalt do signs.

4:18 于是,摩西回到他岳父叶忒罗那里,对他说,求你容我回去见我在埃及的弟兄,看他们还在不在。叶忒罗对摩西说,你可以平平安安地去吧。

And Moses went and returned to Jethro his father in law, and said unto him, Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my brethren which are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive. And Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace.

4:19 耶和华在米甸对摩西说,你要回埃及去,因为寻索你命的人都死了。

And the LORD said unto Moses in Midian, Go, return into Egypt: for all the men are dead which sought thy life.

4:20 摩西就带着妻子和两个儿子,叫他们骑上驴,回埃及地去。摩西手里拿着神的杖。

And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt: and Moses took the rod of God in his hand.

4:21 耶和华对摩西说,你回到埃及的时候,要留意将我指示你的一切奇事行在法老面前。但我要使(或作任凭下同)他的心刚硬,他必不容百姓去。

And the LORD said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go.

4:22 你要对法老说,耶和华这样说,以色列是我的儿子,我的长子。

And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:

4:23 我对你说过,容我的儿子去,好事奉我。你还是不肯容他去。看哪,我要杀你的长子。

And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.

4:24 摩西在路上住宿的地方,耶和华遇见他,想要杀他。

And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the LORD met him, and sought to kill him.

4:25 西坡拉就拿一块火石,割下他儿子的阳皮,丢在摩西脚前,说,你真是我的血郎了。

Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband art thou to me.

4:26 这样,耶和华才放了他。西坡拉说,你因割礼就是血郎了。

So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband thou art, because of the circumcision.

4:27 耶和华对亚伦说,你往旷野去迎接摩西。他就去,在神的山遇见摩西,和他亲嘴。

And the LORD said to Aaron, Go into the wilderness to meet Moses. And he went, and met him in the mount of God, and kissed him.

4:28 摩西将耶和华打发他所说的言语和嘱咐他所行的神迹都告诉了亚伦。

And Moses told Aaron all the words of the LORD who had sent him, and all the signs which he had commanded him.

4:29 摩西,亚伦就去招聚以色列的众长老。

And Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the children of Israel:

4:30 亚伦将耶和华对摩西所说的一切话述说了一遍,又在百姓眼前行了那些神迹,

And Aaron spake all the words which the LORD had spoken unto Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the people.

4:31 百姓就信了。以色列人听见耶和华眷顾他们,鉴察他们的困苦,就低头下拜。

And the people believed: and when they heard that the LORD had visited the children of Israel, and that he had looked upon their affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshipped.

旧约 -- 出埃及记(Exodus) -- 第 5 章 ( 本篇共有 40 章 )[]

5:1 后来摩西,亚伦去对法老说,耶和华以色列的神这样说,容我的百姓去,在旷野向我守节。

And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness.

5:2 法老说,耶和华是谁,使我听他的话,容以色列人去呢。我不认识耶和华,也不容以色列人去。

And Pharaoh said, Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go.

5:3 他们说,希伯来人的神遇见了我们。求你容我们往旷野去,走三天的路程,祭祀耶和华我们的神,免得他用瘟疫,刀兵攻击我们。

And they said, The God of the Hebrews hath met with us: let us go, we pray thee, three days' journey into the desert, and sacrifice unto the LORD our God; lest he fall upon us with pestilence, or with the sword.

5:4 埃及王对他们说,摩西,亚伦,你们为什么叫百姓旷工呢。你们去担你们的担子吧。

And the king of Egypt said unto them, Wherefore do ye, Moses and Aaron, let the people from their works? get you unto your burdens.

5:5 又说,看哪,这地的以色列人如今众多,你们竟叫他们歇下担子。

And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are many, and ye make them rest from their burdens.

5:6 当天,法老吩咐督工的和官长说,

And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the people, and their officers, saying,

5:7 你们不可照常把草给百姓作砖,叫他们自己去捡草。

Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves.

5:8 他们素常作砖的数目,你们仍旧向他们要,一点不可减少,因为他们是懒惰的,所以呼求说,容我们去祭祀我们的神。

And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish ought thereof: for they be idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God.

5:9 你们要把更重的工夫加在这些人身上,叫他们劳碌,不听虚谎的言语。

Let there more work be laid upon the men, that they may labour therein; and let them not regard vain words.

5:10 督工的和官长出来对百姓说,法老这样说,我不给你们草。

And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spake to the people, saying, Thus saith Pharaoh, I will not give you straw.

5:11 你们自己在哪里能找草,就往那里去找吧,但你们的工一点不可减少。

Go ye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not ought of your work shall be diminished.

5:12 于是百姓散在埃及遍地,捡碎秸当作草。

So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw.

5:13 督工的催着说,你们一天当完一天的工,与先前有草一样。

And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your works, your daily tasks, as when there was straw.

5:14 法老督工的,责打他所派以色列人的官长,说,你们昨天今天为什么没有照向来的数目作砖,完你们的工作呢。

And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh's taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded, Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your task in making brick both yesterday and to day, as heretofore?

5:15 以色列人的官长就来哀求法老说,为什么这样待你的仆人。

Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried unto Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy servants?

5:16 督工的不把草给仆人,并且对我们说,作砖吧。看哪,你仆人挨了打,其实是你百姓的错。

There is no straw given unto thy servants, and they say to us, Make brick: and, behold, thy servants are beaten; but the fault is in thine own people.

5:17 但法老说,你们是懒惰的,你们是懒惰的,所以说,容我们去祭祀耶和华。

But he said, Ye are idle, ye are idle: therefore ye say, Let us go and do sacrifice to the LORD.

5:18 现在你们去作工吧,草是不给你们的,砖却要如数交纳。

Go therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be given you, yet shall ye deliver the tale of bricks.

5:19 以色列人的官长听说,你们每天作砖的工作一点不可减少,就知道是遭遇祸患了。

And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in evil case, after it was said, Ye shall not minish ought from your bricks of your daily task.

5:20 他们离了法老出来,正遇见摩西,亚伦站在对面,

And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came forth from Pharaoh:

5:21 就向他们说,愿耶和华鉴察你们,施行判断,因你们使我们在法老和他臣仆面前有了臭名,把刀递在他们手中杀我们。

And they said unto them, The LORD look upon you, and judge; because ye have made our savour to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us.

5:22 摩西回到耶和华那里,说,主阿,你为什么苦待这百姓呢,为什么打发我去呢。

And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, LORD, wherefore hast thou so evil entreated this people? why is it that thou hast sent me?

5:23 自从我去见法老,奉你的名说话,他就苦待这百姓,你一点也没有拯救他们。

For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he hath done evil to this people; neither hast thou delivered thy people at all.
