撒慕爾紀上 1 Samuel
1撒慕爾的話傳遍了全以色列。當時厄里已很老了,他的兩個兒子的品行在上主面前,比以前更壞了。那時,培肋舍特人集合起來攻打以色列人,以色列人便出來還擊他們,在厄本厄則爾旁紮了營,當時培肋舍特人已在阿費克紮了營。1And it came to pass in those days, that the Philistines gathered themselves together to fight: and Israel went out to war against the Philistines, and camped by the Stone of help. And the Philistines came to Aphec,
2培肋舍特人就擺列陣勢攻打以色列人,戰鬥十分激烈;以色列人為培肋舍特打敗,在平原陣地上被擊斃的約有四千人。2And put their army in array against Israel. And when they had joined battle, Israel turned their backs to the Philistines, and there was slain in that fight here and there in the fields about four thousand men.
3軍隊回營後,以色列的長老說:「為什麼上主今天讓我們被培肋舍特人打敗?我們應從史羅把上主的約櫃抬來,讓約櫃來到我們中間,拯救我們擺脫敵人的壓迫。」3And the people returned to the camp: and the ancients of Israel said: Why hath the Lord defeated us today before the Philistines? Let us fetch unto us the ark of the covenant of the Lord from Silo, and let it come in the midst of us, that it may save us from the hand of our enemies.
4於是軍隊就派人到史羅去,從那裡把坐於革魯賓上的萬軍之上主的約櫃抬來;厄里的兩個兒子曷弗尼和丕乃哈斯也跟天主的約櫃來了。4So the people sent to Silo, and they brought from thence the ark of the covenant of the Lord of hosts sitting upon the cherubims: and the two sons of Heli, Ophni and Phinees, were with the ark of the covenant of God.
5當上主的約櫃來到營內的時候,全以色列民就大聲歡呼,大地也震動了。5And when the ark of the covenant of the Lord was come into the camp, all Israel shouted with a great shout, and the earth rang again.
6培肋舍特人一聽見這樣的歡呼聲,就說:「希伯來人在營中為什麼這樣大聲歡呼?」後來纔知道是上主的約櫃來到了他們的營中。6And the Philistines heard the noise of the shout, and they said: What is this noise of a great shout in the camp of the Hebrews? And they understood that the ark of the Lord was come into the camp.
7培肋舍特人大為震驚,遂說:「希伯來人的神來到了他們的營中!」繼而喊說:「我們有禍了!至今從未有過這樣的事!7And the Philistines were afraid, saying: God is come into the camp. And sighing, they said:
8我們有禍了!誰能從這大能的神手中救出我們呢?用各樣災禍在曠野中打擊了埃及人的,就是這個神啊!8Woe to us: for there was no such great joy yesterday and the day before: Woe to us. Who shall deliver us from the hand of these high gods? these are the gods that struck Egypt with all the plagues in the desert.
9培肋舍特人哪!你們應加強,要英勇,免得你們做希伯來人的奴才,像他們做過你們的奴才一樣。你們要英勇,奮鬥作戰!」9Take courage and behave like men, ye Philistines: lest you come to be servants to the Hebrews, as they have served you: take courage and fight.
10培肋舍特人就開始進攻,以色列人大敗,各自逃回了自己的營幕;的確是一場大屠殺,以色列人中陣亡的步兵有三萬;10So the Philistines fought, and Israel was overthrown, and every man fled to his own dwelling: and there was an exceeding great slaughter; for there fell of Israel thirty thousand footmen.
11天主的約櫃也被劫了去,厄里的兩兒子曷弗尼和丕乃哈斯也同時陣亡了。11And the ark of God was taken: and the two sons of Heli, Ophni and Phinees, were slain.
12有個本雅明人從陣地逃出,當天來到了史羅,衣服已撕破,頭上滿是灰塵。12And there ran a man of Benjamin out of the army, and came to Silo the same day, with his clothes rent, and his head strewed with dust.
13他來到時,見厄里在門旁坐在椅子上,向大道觀望,因為他為天主的約櫃很是放心不下。那人一來到,就在城內傳佈開這凶信,全城因此哀號起來;13And when he was come, Heli sat upon a stool over against the way watching. For his heart was fearful for the ark of God. And when the man was come into the city, he told it: and all the city cried out.
14厄里一聽見哀號聲,就問說:「這樣喧嚷,是什麼事?」那人就趕快前來報告給厄里,──14And Heli heard the noise of the cry, and he said: What meaneth the noise of this uproar? But he made haste, and came, and told Heli.
15那時厄里已是九十八歲的人,眼睛雖然瞪著,卻什麼也看不見。──15Now Heli was ninety and eight years old, and his eyes were dim, and he could not see.
16對厄里說:「我是從營中來的,今天剛從戰場上逃回來的。」厄里問說:「我兒,事情怎樣?」16And he said to Heli: I am he that came from the battle, and have fled out of the field this day. And he said to him: What is there done, my son?
17報信的答說:「以色列人在培肋舍特人面前大敗,人民傷亡極大,你的兩個兒子也死了,天主的約櫃也被劫去了。」17And he that brought the news answered, and said: Israel has fled before the Philistines, and there has been a great slaughter of the people: moreover thy two sons, Ophni and Phinees, are dead: and the ark of God is taken.
18他一提到天主的約櫃,厄里就從椅子上往後一仰,跌在門檻上,跌斷了頸項,死了,因為他已年老,且又肥胖。──他四十年之久做了以色列人的民長。18And when he had named the ark of God, he fell from his stool backwards by the door, and broke his neck, and died. For he was an old man, and far advanced in years: and he judged Israel forty years.
19他的兒媳丕乃哈斯的妻子,已經懷孕,快要臨盆;一聽說天主的約櫃被劫去,她的公公和丈夫已死的消息,突然感到陣痛,就彎下身去生產了。19And his daughter in law the wife of Phinees, was big with child, and near her time: and hearing the news that the ark of God was taken, and her father in law, and her husband, were dead, she bowed herself and fell in labour: for her pains came upon her on a sudden.
20她臨死時,侍立在旁的婦女向她說:「不必害怕,你生了一個兒子!」她沒有答應,也沒有留意,20And when she was upon the point of death, they that stood about her said to her: Fear not, for thou hast borne a son. She answered them not, nor gave heed to them.
21只給孩兒起名叫依加波得,說:「光榮已遠離了以色列。」這是指天主的約櫃,她的公公和丈夫都已被劫去,21And she called the child Ichabod, saying: The glory is gone from Israel, because the ark of God was taken, and for her father in law, and her husband:
22所以她說:「光榮已遠離了以色列,」因為天主的約櫃已被劫去。22And she said: The glory is departed from Israel, because the ark of God was taken.
