編年紀(下) 2 Chronicles
1勒哈貝罕去了舍根,因為全以色列人集合在舍根,要立他為王。 1And Roboam went to Sichem: for thither all Israel were assembled, to make him king.
2乃巴特的兒子雅洛貝罕,──為躲避撒羅滿王,曾逃往埃及,──一聽見這事,便從埃及回來, 2And when Jeroboam the son of Nabat, who was in Egypt, (for he was fled thither from Solomon,) heard it, forthwith he returned.
3有人派人去請了他來,他便和全以色列人前來對勒哈貝罕說: 3And they sent for him, and he came with all Israel, and they spoke to Roboam, saying:
4「你的父親使我們的負擔繁重,現在請你減輕你父親加給我們的苦役和重軛,我們纔肯服事你!」 4Thy father oppressed us with a most grievous yoke, do thou govern us with a lighter hand than thy father, who laid upon us a heavy servitude, and ease some thing of the burden, that we may serve thee.
5他回答他們說:「三天以後,你們再來見我。」人民都走了。 5And he said to them: Come to me again after three days. And when the people were gone,
6勒哈貝罕王同那些在他父親撒羅滿生時作臣僕的老年人商議,問他們說:「你們有什麼主意,叫我好答覆這些人民?」 6He took counsel with the ancients, who had stood before his father Solomon, while he yet lived, saying: What counsel give you to me, that I may answer the people?
7他們回答說:「如果你今日善待這些百姓,使他們心悅,向他們說好話,他們必會常常服事你。」 7And they said to him: If thou please this people, and soothe them with kind words, they will be thy servants for ever.
8但是,君王竟拒絕老年人給他出的主意,反去同那些與他一同長大,侍立在他面前的少年人商議, 8But he forsook the counsel of the ancients, and began to treat with the young men, that had been brought up with him, and were in his train.
9問他們說:「這些人民對我說:請你將你父親加給我們的負擔減輕些。你們有什麼主意,好使我答覆他們?」 9And he said to them: What seemeth good to you? or what shall I answer this people, who have said to me: Ease the yoke which thy father laid upon us?
10那些與他一同長大的少年人答說:「這些百姓曾對你說:你父親曾加重我們的負擔,請你給我們減輕些。你要這樣回答他們,這樣對他們說:我的小指比我父親的腰還粗; 10But they answered as young men, and brought up with him in pleasures, and said: Thus shalt thou speak to the people, that said to thee: Thy father made our yoke heavy, do thou ease it: thus shalt thou answer them: My little finger is thicker than the loins of my father.
11我父親曾加給你們的重擔,我更要加重你們的負擔;我父親用鞭子責打你們,我卻要用鐵刺鞭責打你們。」 11My father laid upon you a heavy yoke, and I will add more weight to it: my father beat you with scourges, but I will beat you with scorpions.
12雅洛貝罕和全人民照君王所說「你們第三天再來見我」的話,第三天來見勒哈貝罕。 12So Jeroboam, and all the people came to Roboam the third day, as he commanded them.
13王嚴厲答覆了人民;勒哈貝罕王拋棄了老年人的意見, 13And the king answered roughly, leaving the counsel of the ancients.
14依照少年人的主張答覆人民說:「我的父親加重了你們的重擔,我更要加重;我父親用鞭子責打你們,我要用鐵刺鞭責打你們。」 14And he spoke according to the advice of the young men: My father laid upon you a heavy yoke, which I will make heavier: my father beat you with scourges, but I will beat you with scorpions.
15君王始終不肯聽從人民;這種轉變原是出於天主,為實現上主藉史羅人阿希雅論及乃巴特的兒子雅洛貝罕所說的話。 15And he condescended not to the people's requests: for it was the will of God, that his word might be fulfilled which he had spoken by the hand of Ahias the Silonite to Jeroboam the son of Nabat.
16全以色列人見王不肯依從他們,便回覆君王說:「我們與達味有什麼分子?我們與葉瑟的兒子毫無關係!以色列!回到你的帳幕去!達味!現在你只顧你本家罷!」於是全以色列人都回了自己的帳幕, 16And all the people upon the king's speaking roughly, said thus unto him: We have no part in David, nor inheritance in the son of Isai. Return to thy dwellings, O Israel, and do thou, O David, feed thy own house. And Israel went away to their dwellings.
17只那些住在猶大城內的以色列子民,歸勒哈貝罕統治。 17But Roboam reigned over the children of Israel that dwelt in the cities of Juda.
18勒哈貝罕王派遣監管勞役的阿多蘭去見以色列,以色列子民卻用石頭將他砸死;勒哈貝罕王急忙上車,逃回了耶路撒冷。 18And king Roboam sent Aduram, who was over the tributes, and the children of Israel stoned him, and he died: and king Roboam made haste to gee up into his chariot, and fled into Jerusalem.
19這樣,以色列叛離達味王朝,直到現在。 19And Israel revolted from the house of David unto this day.
