列王紀(上) 1 Kings
1這事以後,依次勒耳人納波特在依次勒耳,靠近撒瑪黎雅王阿哈布的宮殿,有一個葡萄園。1And after these things, Naboth the Jezrahelite, who was in Jezrahel, had at that time a vineyard near the palace of Achab king of Samaria.
2阿哈布對納波特說:「請將你的葡萄園讓給我,我可以用作菜園,因為離我的宮殿很近;我願拿一個更好的葡萄園來與你交換;或者,如果你認為好,我也可以照葡萄園的價值給你錢。」2And Achab spoke to Naboth, saying: Give me thy vineyard, that I may make me a garden of herbs, because it is nigh, and adjoining to my house, and I will give thee for it a better vineyard: or if thou think it more convenient for thee, I will give thee the worth of it in money.
3納波特回答阿哈布說:「上主決不許我將我祖先的產業讓給你!」3Naboth answered him: The Lord be merciful to me, and not let me give thee the inheritance of my fathers.
4阿哈布由於依次勒耳人納波特對他所說:「我決不將我祖先的產業讓給你」的話,便悶悶不樂地回到宮中,躺在床上,轉過臉去,不肯吃飯。4And Achab came into his house angry and fretting, because of the word that Naboth the Jezrahelite had spoken to him, saying: I will not give thee the inheritance of my fathers. And casting himself upon his bed, he turned away his face to the wall, and would eat no bread.
5他的妻子依則貝耳來見他,問他說:「你為什麼心裡這樣憂悶,連飯都不肯吃?」5And Jezabel his wife went in to him, and said to him: What is the matter that thy soul is so grieved? and why eatest thou no bread?
6阿哈布回答說:「因為我對依次勒耳人納波特說:請將你的葡萄園按現價賣給我,或者如果你願意,我可以拿另一個葡萄園來與你交換;他卻回答說:我決不將我的葡萄園讓給你。」6And he answered her: I spoke to Naboth the Jezrahelite, and said to him: Give me thy vineyard, and take money for it: or if it please thee, I will give thee a better vineyard for it. And he said: I will not give thee my vineyard.
7他的妻子依則貝耳對他說:「你真會統治以色列!只管起來吃飯,心情愉快,我必將依次勒耳人納波特的葡萄園交給你。」7Then Jezabel his wife said to him: Thou art of great authority indeed, and governest well the kingdom of Israel. Arise, and eat bread, and be of good cheer, I will give thee the vineyard of Naboth the Jezrahelite.
8依則貝耳便以阿哈布的名義寫了一封信,蓋上君王的印章,送給與納波特同住一城的長老和官紳,8So she wrote letter's in Achab's name, and sealed them with his ring, and sent them to the ancients, and the chief men that were in his city, and that dwelt with Naboth.
9信上寫道:「請你們宣布禁食,叫納波特坐上民眾的首位,9And this was the tenor of the letters: Proclaim a fast, and make Naboth sit among the chief of the people,
10然後再叫兩個流氓坐在他的對面,作證控告他說:納波特辱罵了天主和君王,你們應將他拉出城外,用石頭砸死。」10And suborn two men, sons of Belial against him, and let them bear false witness: that he hath blasphemed God and the king: and then carry him out, and stone him, and so let him die.
11那些與納波特同住在一城的長老和官紳,便照依則貝耳吩咐他們的,照她在送給他們的信上所寫的去行:11And the men of his city, the ancients and nobles, that dwelt with him in the city, did as Jezabel had commanded them, and as it was written in the letters which she had sent to them:
12宣布禁食,叫納波特坐上民眾的首位,12They proclaimed a fast, and made Naboth sit among the chief of the people.
13兩個流氓前來坐在他的對面,當眾作證控告他說:「納波特辱罵了天主和君王。」眾人便將他拉出城外,用石頭砸死了。13And bringing two men, sons of the devil, they made them sit against him: and they, like men of the devil, bore witness against him before the people, saying: Naboth hath blasphemed God and the king: wherefore they brought him forth without the city, and stoned him to death.
14然後派人告訴依則貝耳說:「納波特已用石頭砸死了。」14And they sent to Jezabel, saying: Naboth is stoned, and is dead.
15依則貝耳聽說納波特已用石頭砸死了,就對阿哈布說:「你起來,去佔領依次勒耳人納波特,先前不肯照現價賣給你的葡萄園,因為納波特已經不在了,已經死了。」15And it came to pass when Jezabel heard that Naboth was stoned, and dead, that she said to Achab: Arise and take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezrahelite, who would not agree with thee, and give it thee for money: for Naboth is not alive, but dead.
16阿哈布一聽說納波特死了,就起身下到依次勒耳人納波特的葡萄園,霸佔了那葡萄園。16And when Achab heard this, to wit, that Naboth was dead, he arose, and went down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezrahelite, to take possession of it.
17那時,有上主的話傳於提市貝人厄里亞說:17And the word of the Lord came to Elias the Thesbite, saying:
18「你起來,下去會晤住在撒瑪黎雅的以色列王阿哈布;看,他現在正在納波特的葡萄園內,他下到那裡去霸佔了那葡萄園。18Arise, and go down to meet Achab king of Israel, who is in Samaria: behold he is going down to the vineyard of Naboth, to take possession of it:
19你要對他說:上主這樣說:你殺了人,還要霸佔他的產業嗎?繼而對他說:上主這樣說:狗在什麼地方,舔了納波特的血,也要在什麼地方舔你的血。」19And thou shalt speak to him, saying: Thus saith the Lord: Thou hast slain, moreover also thou hast taken possession. And after these words thou shalt add: Thus saith the Lord: In this place, wherein the dogs have licked the blood of Naboth, they shall lick thy blood also.
20阿哈布對厄里亞說:「我的對頭,你又找到了我的錯嗎?」厄里亞答說:「是,我找到了你的錯,因為你出賣了你自己,去行上主視為惡的事。20And Achab said to Elias: Hast thou found me thy enemy? He said: I have found thee, because thou art sold, to do evil in the sight of the Lord.
21我必要在你身上降災,消滅你的宗族;以色列所有屬於阿哈布的男子無論是自由的或不自由的,一概滅絕。21Behold I will bring evil upon thee, and I will cut down thy posterity, and I will kill of Achab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up, and the last in Israel.
22我要使你的家像乃巴特的兒子雅洛貝罕的家,又像阿希雅的兒子巴厄沙的家,因為你惹我發怒,使以色列陷於罪惡。22And I will make thy house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nabat, and like the house of Baasa the son of Ahias: for what thou hast done, to provoke me to anger, and for making Israel to sin.
23至於依則貝耳,上主也預告說:狗要在依次勒耳的田間,吞食依則貝耳。23And of Jezabel also the Lord spoke, saying: The dogs shall eat Jezabel in the field of Jezrahel.
24凡屬阿哈布的人,死在城中的,要為狗吞食,死在田間的,要為空中的飛鳥啄食。」24If Achab die in the city, the dogs shall eat him: but if he die in the field, the birds of the air shall eat him.
25實在,從來沒有人像阿哈布一樣,受他的妻子依則貝耳的引誘,這樣出賣自己,行上主視為惡的事。25Now there was not such another as Achab, who was sold to do evil in the sight of the Lord: for his wife Jezabel set him on,
26他行了最可憎惡的事,歸依了邪神偶像,全像上主從以色列子民前,趕走的阿摩黎人所行的一樣。26And he became abominable, insomuch that he followed the idols which the Amorrhites had made, whom the Lord destroyed before the face of the children of Israel.
27阿哈布一聽這些話,就撕破自己的衣服,身穿麻衣,禁食,穿著麻衣睡覺,低頭緩步行走。27And when Achab had heard these words, he rent his garments, and put haircloth upon his flesh, and fasted and slept in sackcloth, and walked with his head cast down.
28於是有上主的話傳於提市貝人厄里亞說:28And the word of the Lord came to Elias the Thesbite, saying:
29「阿哈布在我面前這樣自卑自賤,你看見了沒有?他既然在我面前自卑自賤,在他有生之日,我不降此災禍;但是,到他兒子的日子,我要使這災禍臨於他家。」29Hast thou not seen Achab humbled before me? therefore, because he hath humbled himself for my sake, I will not bring the evil in his days, but in his son's days will I bring the evil upon his house.
