列王紀(上) 1 Kings
1達味死的日子已經近了,便囑咐自己的兒子撒羅滿說:1And the days of David drew nigh that he should die, and he charged his son Solomon, saying:
2「我現在要走世人應走的路,你要作英勇有為的大丈夫,2I am going the way of all flesh: take thou courage, and shew thyself a man.
3恪守上主你天主的典章,履行他的道路,遵守他的規律、誡命、法令和制度,如梅瑟法律上所記載的:這樣無論你做什麼,無論你往何處去,必然順利;3And keep the charge of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and observe his ceremonies, and his precepts, and judgments, and testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses: that thou mayest understand all thou dost, and whithersoever thou shalt turn thyself:
4上主也必履行他關於我所說的話,說:如果你的子孫固守他們的道路,真能全心全意在我面前行走,那麼,你的後代就決不缺坐上以色列寶座的人。4That the Lord may confirm his words, which he hath spoken of me, saying: If thy children shall take heed to their ways, and shall walk before me in truth, with all their heart, and with all their soul, there shall not be taken away from thee a man on the throne of Israel.
5此外,你也知道責魯雅的兒子約阿布對我所做的事,對以色列軍隊的兩個統帥,乃爾的兒子阿貝乃爾和耶特爾的兒子阿瑪撒所做的事;他在昇平時,殺了他們,像在戰爭時殺人,使我腰間的帶子和腳上的鞋染了無辜的血。5Thou knowest also what Joab the son of Sarvia hath done to me, what he did to the two captains of the army of Israel, to Abner the son of Ner, and to Amasa the son of Jether: whom he slew, and shed the blood of war in peace, and put the blood of war on his girdle that was about his loins, and in his shoes that were on his feet.
6你要憑你的明智行事,不要讓他平安無事,白頭下入陰府。6Do therefore according to thy wisdom, and let not his hoary head go down to hell in peace.
7至於基肋阿得人巴爾齊來的子孫,你卻應該厚待他們,使他們列入你席上的食客,因為當我逃避你哥哥阿貝沙隆時,他們是怎樣的照顧了我。7But shew kindness to the sons of Berzellai the Galaadite, and let them eat at thy table: for they met me when I fled from the face of Absalom thy brother.
8看,在你身旁還有巴胡陵地的本雅明人革辣的兒子史米,在我去瑪哈納殷那一天,他惡毒地咒罵了我;但是,後來他又下到約但河來迎接我,當時我指著上主對他起誓說:我決不用刀處決你。8Thou hast also with thee Semei the son of Gera the son of Jemini of Bahurim, who cursed me with a grievous curse, when I went to the camp: but because he came down to meet me when I passed over the Jordan, and I swore to him by the Lord, saying: I will not kill thee with a sword:
9現在,你可不要把他看作無罪的人,你既然明智,就該知道怎樣對付他,使他白髮染血,下入陰府。」9Do not thou hold him guiltless. But thou art a wise man, and knowest what to do with him, and thou shalt bring down his grey hairs with blood to hell.
10達味與自己的列祖同眠,葬在達味城。10So David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David.
11達味作以色列王四十年:在赫貝龍作王七年,在耶路撒冷作王三十三年。11And the days that David reigned in Israel, were forty years: in Hebron he reigned seven years, in Jerusalem thirty-three.
12撒羅滿於是坐上了他父親達味的寶座,他的王國很是鞏固。12And Solomon sat upon the throne of his father David, and his kingdom was strengthened exceedingly.
13哈基特的兒子阿多尼雅來見撒羅滿的母親巴特舍巴,她問說:「你來這裡平安嗎?」阿多尼雅回答說:「平安。」13And Adonias the son of Haggith came to Bethsabee the mother of Solomon. And she said to him: Is thy coming peaceable? he answered: Peaceable.
14繼而又說:「我有句話對你說。」巴特舍巴說:「請說罷!」14And he added: I have a word to speak with thee. She said to him: Speak. And he said:
15他說:「你知道王國原該歸於我,全以色列都期待我為王。無奈王國反而歸於我的弟弟;當然,歸他是由於上主。15Thou knowest that the kingdom was nine, and all Israel had preferred me to be their king: but the kingdom is transferred, and is become my brother's: for it was appointed him by the Lord.
16現在,我要求你一件事,請你不要拒絕我!」巴特舍巴對他說:「說罷!」16Now therefore I ask one petition of thee: turn not away my face. And she said to him: Say on.
17阿多尼雅說:「我求你向撒羅滿說:將叔能的女子阿彼沙格給我為妻,因為他決不會拒絕你的請求。」17And he said: I pray thee speak to king Solomon (for he cannot deny thee any thing) to give me Abisag the Sunamitess to wife.
18巴特舍巴說:「好!我要為你請求君王。」18And Bethsabee said: Well, I will speak for thee to the king.
19巴特舍巴於是去見撒羅滿王,為阿多尼雅請求。君王遂起身迎接她,向她俯首致敬,然後坐在寶座上;又叫人為君王的母親另預備了一個座位,她便坐在君王的右邊。19Then Bethsabee came to king Solomon, to speak to him for Adonias: and the king arose to meet her, and bowed to her, and sat down upon his throne: and a throne was set for the king's mother, and she sat on his right hand.
20巴特舍巴說:「我要求你一件小事,請你不要拒絕我!」君王對她說:「母親!你求罷!我決不拒絕。」20And she said to him: I desire one small petition of thee, do not put me to confusion. And the king said to her: My mother, ask: for I must not turn away thy face.
21巴特舍巴說:「請你將叔能的女子阿彼沙格給你哥哥阿多尼雅為妻。」21And she said: Let Abisag the Sunamitess be given to Adonias thy brother to wife.
22撒羅滿回答母親說:「你為什麼為阿多尼雅要求叔能的女子阿彼沙格呢?你為他要求王國罷!因為他是我的哥哥,何況厄貝雅塔爾司祭和責魯雅的兒子約阿布又都擁護他。」22And king Solomon answered, and said to his mother: Why dost thou ask Abisag the Sunamitess for Adonias? ask for him also the kingdom: for he is my elder brother, and hath Abiathar the priest, and Joab the son of Sarvia.
23撒羅滿王便指著上主起誓說:「如果阿多尼雅說了這話,而不喪失性命,願上主嚴厲懲罰我,並加倍地懲罰我!23Then king Solomon swore by the Lord, saying: So and so may God do to me, and add more, if Adonias hath not spoken this word against his own life.
24上主支持我,使我坐上了我父親達味的寶座,照他所應許的,給我建立了王室,現在,我指著永生的上主起誓::阿多尼雅今天必該處死!」24And now as the Lord liveth, who hath established me, and placed me upon the throne of David my father, and who hath made me a house, as he promised, Adonias shall be put to death this day.
25撒羅滿王便派約雅達的兒子貝納雅去殺了阿多尼雅;阿多尼雅便死了。25And king Solomon sent by the hand of Banaias the son of Joiada, who slew him, and he died.
26此後,君王對厄貝雅塔爾司祭說:「你回阿納托特,往你的莊田去罷!你原是該死的人,但今天我不殺你,因為你曾在我父親達味面前,抬過吾主上主的約櫃,與我父親同受過一切艱苦。」26And the king said also to Abiathar the priest: Go to Anathoth to thy lands, for indeed thou art worthy of death: but I will not at this time put thee to death, because thou didst carry the ark of the Lord God before David my father, and hast endured trouble in all the troubles my father endured.
27這樣,撒羅滿罷免了厄貝雅塔爾作上主的司祭,應驗了上主昔日在史羅指著厄里家族所說的話。27So Solomon cast out Abiathar, from being the priest of the Lord, that the word of the Lord might be fulfilled, which he spoke concerning the house of Deli in Silo.
28約阿布既然支持阿多尼雅,而沒有支持撒羅滿,他聽到了這消息,便跑到上主的會幕裡,抱住祭壇的角。28And the news came to Joab, because Joab had turned after Adonias, and had not turned after Solomon: and Joab fled into the tabernacle of the Lord and laid hold on the horn of the altar.
29有人報告撒羅滿王說:「約阿布逃到上主的會幕裡,站在祭壇旁。」撒羅滿就吩咐約雅達的兒子貝納雅說:「你去,將他殺死!」29And it was told king Solomon, that Joab was fled into the tabernacle of the Lord, and was by the altar: and Solomon sent Banaias the son of Joiada, saying: Go, kill him.
30貝納雅便到上主的會幕內,對約阿布說:「君王這樣吩咐:你出來罷!」他回答說:「我不出去,我寧願死在這裡。」貝納雅回來向君王覆命說:「約阿布這樣說了,這樣回答了我。」30And Banaias came to the tabernacle of the Lord, and said to him: Thus saith the king: Come forth. And he said: I will not come forth, but here I will die. Banaias brought word back to the king, saying: Thus saith Joab, and thus he answered me.
31君王對他說:「你就照他所說的去做:將他殺死埋掉,今天你即應從我身上,由我父家除去約阿布所流的無辜之血。31And the king said to him: Do as he hath said: and kill him, and bury him, and thou shalt remove the innocent blood which hath been shed by Joab, from me, and from the house of my father.
32上主必要使他所流的血歸到他頭上,因為他曾殺死了兩個比他更正義,更慈善的人。他用刀殺死了乃爾的兒子,以色列軍隊的統帥阿貝乃爾,和耶特爾的兒子,猶大軍隊的統帥阿瑪撒,這事我父親一點都不知道。32And the Lord shall return his blood upon his own head, because he murdered two men, just and better than himself: and slew them with the sword, my father David not knowing it, Abner the son of Ner, general of the army of Israel, and Amasa the son of Jether, general of the army of Juda.
33他們的血要永歸在約阿布和他子孫的頭上;至於達味,他的後裔,他的家族,他的王位,必永遠享受由上主而來的平安!」33And their blood shall return the head of Joab, and upon the head of his seed for ever. But to David and his seed and his house, and to his throne be peace for ever from the Lord.
34約雅達的兒子貝納雅就上去,殺了他,把他葬在他曠野中的家園。34So Banaias the son of Joiada went up, and setting upon him slew him, and he was buried in his house in the desert.
35君王遂委任約雅達的兒子貝納雅,代替約阿布統率軍隊,又委任匝多克司祭,代替厄貝雅塔爾。35And the king appointed Banaias the son of Joiada in his room over the army, and Sadoc the priest he put in the place of Abiathar.
36君王派人將史米召來,對他說:「你要在耶路撒冷為你建築一座房屋,住在那裡,不可從那裡出來,到任何地方去。36The king also sent, and called for Semei, and said to him: Build thee a house in Jerusalem, and dwell there: and go not out from thence any whither.
37你應當知道:你那一天出來,渡過克德龍溪,你那天就一定要死;你的血必歸在你頭上。」37For on what day soever thou shalt go out, and shalt pass over the brook Cedron, know that thou shalt be put to death: thy blood shall be upon thy own head:
38史米對君王說:「這話很好!我主大王怎樣說,你的僕人就怎樣做。」史米於是常住在耶路撒冷。38And Semei said to the king: The saying is good: as my lord the king hath said, so will thy servant do. And Semei dwelt in Jerusalem, many days.
39三年以後,史米的兩個僕人逃到瑪敖客的兒子,加特的君王阿基士那裡去了。有人告訴史米說:「你的僕人在加特。」39And it came to pass after three years, that the servants of Semei ran away to Achis the son of Maacha the king of Geth: and it was told Semei that his servants were gone to Geth.
40史米便起來,備好自己的驢,往加特阿基士那裡,找他的僕人。史米去了,從加特帶回了自己的僕人。40And Semei arose, and saddled his ass, and went to Achis to Geth to seek his servants, and he brought them out of Geth.
41有人告訴撒羅滿說:「史米從耶路撒冷去了加特,又回來了。」41And it was told Solomon that Semei had gone from Jerusalem to Geth, and was come back.
42君王便派人將史米召來,對他說:「難道我沒有叫你指著上主起誓,預先警告你說:你應當知道:你那一天出去,不論到任何地方,你那一天就一定要死麼?你不是也對我說過:這話很好,我聽見了麼?42And sending he called for him, and said to him: Did I not protest to thee by the Lord, and tell thee before: On what day soever thou shalt go out and walk abroad any whither, know that thou shalt die? And thou answeredst me: The word that I have heard is good.
43為什麼你沒有遵守對上主的誓言和我吩咐你的命令?」43Why then hast thou not kept the oath of the Lord, and the commandment that I laid upon thee?
44君王又對史米說:「你心裡明白你對我父親達味所做的一切惡事,所以上主要將你的邪惡都歸在你頭上。44And the king said to Semei: Thou knowest all the evil, of which thy heart is conscious, which thou didst to David my father: the Lord hath returned thy wickedness upon thy own head:
45而撒羅滿王卻要蒙受祝福,達味的王權要在上主面前,永遠堅定不移!」45And king Solomon shall be blessed, and the throne of David shall be established before the Lord for ever.
46於是君王命令約雅達的兒子貝納雅出去,擊殺了史米,史米就死了。於是王國在撒羅滿治下纔算鞏固了。46So the king commanded Banaias the son of Joiada: and he went out and struck him, and he died.
