撒慕爾紀上 1 Samuel
1克黎雅特耶阿陵人遂下來,將上主的約櫃抬上去,送到住在丘嶺上的阿彼納達布家裏,並且祝聖他的兒子厄肋阿匝爾,看守上主的約櫃。 1And then men of Cariathiarim came and fetched up the ark of the Lord and carried it into the house of Abinadab in Gabaa: and they sanctified Eleazar his son, to keep the ark of the Lord.
2自從約櫃停放在克黎雅特耶阿陵的那天起,過了很長的時間,大約二十年之久,以色列全家又歸向上主。 2And it came to pass, that from the day the ark of the Lord abode in Cariathiarim days were multiplied, (for it was now the twentieth year,) and all the house of Israel rested following the Lord.
3那時撒慕爾對以色列全家說:「如果你們全心歸向上主,就該將外邦的神由你們中間剷除,一心歸向上主,惟獨事奉上主,他必由培肋舍特人手中解救你們。」 3And Samuel spoke to all the house of Israel, saying: If you turn to the Lord with all your heart, put away the strange gods from among you, Baalim and Astaroth: and prepare your hearts unto the Lord, and serve him only, and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines.
4以色列子民遂剷除了巴耳和阿市托勒特,唯獨事奉上主。 4Then the children of Israel put away Baalim and Astaroth, and served the Lord only.
5於是撒慕爾說:「你們把全以色列聚集在米茲帕,我要為你們懇求上主。」 5And Samuel said: Gather all Israel to Masphath, that I may pray to the Lord for you.
6他們便聚集在米茲帕,汲了水來,倒在上主面前,並且在那一天禁食說:「我們犯了罪,得罪了上主!」從此撒慕爾在米茲帕治理以色列子民。 6And they gathered together to Masphath: and they drew water, and poured it out before the Lord, and they fasted on that day, and they said there: We have sinned against the Lord. And Samuel judged the children of Israel in Masphath.
7培肋舍特人一聽說以色列子民聚集在米茲帕,培肋舍特的酋長就上來攻打以色列,以色列子民聽說培肋舍特人前來,大為震驚, 7And the Philistines heard that the children of Israel were gathered together to Masphath, and the lords of the Philistines went up against Israel. And when the children of Israel heard this, they were afraid of the Philistines.
8對撒慕爾說:「你不要停止為我們哀求上主,我們的天主,好叫他救我們脫離培肋舍特人的威脅。」 8And they said to Samuel: Cease not to cry to the Lord our God for us, that he may save us out of the hand of the Philistines.
9撒慕爾遂拿了一隻還在吃奶的羔羊獻給上主,作全燔祭,為以色列呼籲上主,上主應允了他。 9And Samuel took a sucking lamb, and offered it whole for a holocaust to the Lord: and Samuel cried to the Lord for Israel, and the Lord heard him.
10當撒慕爾正在奉獻全燔祭時,培肋舍特人前來,要與以色列交戰;但上主在那一天使雷聲向着培肋舍特人大作,恐嚇他們,他們就在以色列面前潰退了。 10And it came to pass, when Samuel was offering the holocaust, the Philistines began the battle against Israel: but the Lord thundered with a great thunder on that day upon the Philistines, and terrified them, and they were overthrown before the face of Israel.
11以色列人遂從米茲帕出來追擊培肋舍特人,擊殺他們直到貝特加爾下邊。 11And the men of Israel going out of Masphath pursued after the Philistines, and made slaughter of them till they came under Bethchar.
12以後,撒慕爾取了一塊石頭,豎立在米茲帕與耶撒納中間,給那石起名叫厄本厄則爾,說:「直到這時上主救助了我們。」 12And Samuel took a stone, and laid it between Masphath and Sen: and he called the place, the Stone of help. And he said: Thus far the Lord hath helped us.
13培肋舍特人受了這次挫折以後,不敢再來侵犯以色列的邊境;撒慕爾活着時,上主的手常壓制了培肋舍特人。 13And the Philistines were humbled, and they did not come any more into the borders of Israel. And the hand of the Lord was against the Philistines, all the days of Samuel.
14培肋舍特人由以色列奪去的城市,自厄刻龍直到加特,都歸還了以色列;以色列人由培肋舍特人手中收復了自己的領土;在那時以色列和阿摩黎人之間平安無事。 14And the cities, which the Philistines had taken from Israel, were restored to Israel, from Accaron to Geth, and their borders: and he delivered Israel from the hand of the Philistines, and there was peace between Israel and the Amorrhites.
15撒慕爾一生做了以色列的民長。 15And Samuel judged Israel all the days of his life:
16他每年去視察貝特耳、基耳加耳和米茲帕,在這些地方治理以色列人。 16And he went every year about to Bethel and to Galgal and to Masphath, and he judged Israel in the aforesaid places.
17以後他回到辣瑪,因為他的家在那裏,他也在那裏治理以色列人,並在那裏給上主建了一座祭壇。 17And he returned to Ramatha, for there was his house, and there he judged Israel: he built also there an altar to the Lord.
