編年紀(上) 1 Chronicles
1當達味住在宮殿時,對納堂先知說:「看,我住在香柏木的宮殿裡,上主的結約之櫃卻在帳幕裡。」1Now when David was dwelling in his house, he said to Nathan the prophet: Behold I dwell in a house of cedar: and the ark of the covenant of the Lord is under skins.
2納堂回答達味說:「你心中打算的,你全可照辦,因為上主與你同在。」2And Nathan said to David: Do all that is in thy heart: for God is with thee.
3但是,當夜就有天主的話傳於納堂說:3Now that night the word of God came to Nathan, saying:
4「你去告訴我的僕人達味,上主這樣說:不是你要為我建築殿宇居住。4Go, and speak to David my servant: Thus saith the Lord: Thou shalt not build me a house to dwell in.
5我自從領以色列上來那天起,直到今日,從沒有住過殿宇,只從這帳棚到那帳棚,從這會幕到那會幕。5For I have not remained in a house from the time that I brought up Israel, to this day: but I have been always changing places in a tabernacle, and in a tent,
6在我與全以色列同行時,我何嘗向我立為牧養我民以色列的一個民長說過:你們為什麼不為我建造一座香柏木的殿宇?6Abiding with all Israel. Did I ever speak to any one, of all the judges of Israel, whom I charged to feed my people, saying: Why have you not built me a house of cedar?
7現在你要對我的僕人達味說:萬軍的上主這樣說:是我揀選你離開牧場,離開放羊的事,作我民以色列的領袖。7Now therefore thus shalt thou say to my servant David: Thus saith the Lord of hosts: I took thee from the pastures, from following the flock, that thou shouldst be ruler of my people Israel.
8你不論往那裡去,我總是同你在一起,由你面前消滅你的一切仇敵。我要使你成名,像世上出名的大人物。8And I have been with thee whithersoever thou hast gone: and have slain all thy enemies before thee, and have made thee a name like that of one of the great ones that are renowned in the earth.
9我要為我民以色列安置一個地方,栽培他們,在那裡久住,再也不受驚擾,再也不像先前受惡人的蹂躪,9And I have given a place to my people Israel: they shall be planted, and shall dwell therein, and shall be moved no more, neither shall the children of iniquity waste them, as at the beginning,
10有如我為我民以色列立民長的時候一樣;我要降服你的一切仇敵。並且我告訴你:上主必要為你建立家室。10Since the days that I gave judges to my people Israel, and have humbled all thy enemies. And I declare to thee, that the Lord will build thee a house.
11及至你日子滿期,到你祖先那裡去時,我必在你以後給你興起一個後裔,即你所生的一個兒子,鞏固他的王權。11And when thou shalt have ended thy days to go to thy fathers, I will raise up thy seed after thee, which shall be of thy sons: and I will establish his kingdom.
12他要為我建造殿宇,我要鞏固他的王位,直到永遠。12He shall build me a house, and I will establish his throne for ever.
13我要作他的父親,他要作我的兒子;我決不使我的寵愛離棄他,有如離棄你以前那一位13I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son: and I will not take my mercy away from him, as I took it from him that was before thee.
14「反要使他堅立在我的家和我的國中,至於永遠;他的王位永固不移。」14But I will settle him in my house, and in my kingdom for ever: and his throne shall be most firm for ever.
15納堂便照這一切話,將整個啟示告訴了達味。15According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak to David.
16達味就進去,端坐在上主面前說:「上主天主!我是誰?我的家族又算什麼,你竟領我到了這個地步!16And king David came and sat before the Lord, and said: Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my house, that thou shouldst give such things to me?
17天主,這在你眼裡還以為太小,而你又說明了你僕人家族的未來遠景,竟視我有如一個高貴的人,上主,天主!17But even this hath seemed little in thy sight, and therefore thou hast also spoken concerning the house of thy servant for the time to come: and hast made me remarkable above all men, O Lord God.
18為了你加於你僕人達味的光榮,我還有什麼話可向你說,你認識你的僕人。18What can David add more, seeing thou hast thus glorified thy servant, and known him?
19上主你為了你的僕人,按照你的心意,成就了這些偉大的事,為將這些偉大的事彰顯出來。19O Lord, for thy servant's sake, according to thy own heart, thou hast shewn all this magnificence, and wouldst have all the great things to be known.
20上主照我們耳朵所聽到的,沒有誰能與你相比;除你以外,也沒有別的神。20O Lord there is none like thee: and there is no other God beside thee, of all whom we have heard of with our ears.
21世上又有那一個民族,能比得上你的民族以色列?天主竟親自將他們解救出來,作為自己的民族,為使你成名,就在你從埃及解救出來的人民前,行了大而可畏的奇事,驅散了異民;21For what other nation is there upon earth like thy people Israel, whom God went to deliver, and make a people for himself, and by his greatness and terrors cast out nations before their face whom he had delivered out of Egypt?
22你使你的民族以色列永遠作你的民族,你,上主做他們的天主。22And thou hast made thy people Israel to be thy own people for ever, and thou, O Lord, art become their God.
23上主!現在求你永遠堅持你論及你僕人,及他的家室所說的話,照你所說的話履行罷!23Now therefore, O Lord, let the word which thou hast spoken to thy servant, and concerning his house, be established for ever, and do as thou hast said.
24願這話堅定不移,願你的名永遠受尊崇,人人都說:萬軍的上主,以色列的天主,實在是以色列的天主。願你僕人達味的家室,在你面前堅定不移!24And let thy name remain and be magnified for ever: and let it be said: The Lord of hosts is God of Israel, and the house of David his servant remaineth before him.
25我的天主!因為是你啟示你的僕人,要為他建立家室,因此,你的僕人纔敢在你面前如此祈禱。25For thou, O Lord my God, hast revealed to the ear of thy servant, that thou wilt build him a house: and therefore thy servant hath found confidence to pray before thee.
26上主!惟獨你是天主!是你向你僕人應許了這些恩惠。26And now O Lord, thou art God: and thou hast promised to thy servant such great benefits.
27現在,就請你惠然祝福你僕人的家室,使它永在你面前存立。上主因為凡你祝福的,必永遠獲得祝福。」27And thou hast begun to bless the house of thy servant, that it may be always before thee: for seeing thou blessest it, O Lord, it shall be blessed for ever.
