2 Chronicles:Chapter 1 Next
編年紀(下) 2 Chronicles
1達味的兒子撒羅滿漸漸鞏固了自己的王位,上主,他的天主常與他同在,使他非常偉大。1And Solomon the son of David was strengthened in his kingdom, and the Lord his God was with him, and magnified him to a high degree.
2撒羅滿命令全以色列,即千夫長、百夫長、判官,以及全以色列的首領和族長集合,2And Solomon gave orders to all Israel, to the captains of thousands, and of hundreds, and to the rulers, and to the judges of all Israel, and the heads of the families:
3然後同全會眾往基貝紅高丘去,因為那裡有上主的僕人梅瑟,在曠野裡所做的天主的會幕。3And he went with all the multitude to the high place of Gabaon, where was the tabernacle of the covenant of the Lord, which Moses the servant of God made, in the wilderness.
4但是,天主的約櫃,達味已由克黎雅特耶阿陵運到所預備的地方,因為他在耶路撒冷為約櫃搭了一個帳幕。4For David had brought the ark of God from Cariathiarim to the place, which he had prepared for it, and where he had pitched a tabernacle for it, that is, in Jerusalem.
5胡爾的子孫,烏黎的兒子貝匝肋耳所製的銅壇也在那裡,即上主的會幕前。撒羅滿與會眾便去求問上主。5And the altar of brass, which Beseleel the son of Uri the son of Hur had made, was there before the tabernacle of the Lord: and Solomon and all the assembly sought it:
6撒羅滿上到會幕前的銅壇上,在上主面前,獻了一千犧牲,作為全燔祭。6And Solomon went up thither to the brazen altar, before the tabernacle of the covenant of the Lord, and offered up on it a thousand victims.
7那天夜裡天主顯示給撒羅滿,對他說:「你不拘求甚麼,我必給你!」7And behold that night God appeared to him, saying: Ask what thou wilt that I should give thee.
8撒羅滿對天主說:「你曾對我父達味大施仁慈,使我繼他為王。8And Solomon said to God: Thou hast shewn great kindness to my father David: and hast made me king in his stead.
9上主,天主!現在唯願你向我父達味應許的話得以實現,因為你已立了我為王,治理一個多如地上塵沙的民族。9Now therefore, O Lord God, let thy word be fulfilled, which thou hast promised to David my father: for thou hast made me king over thy great people, which is as innumerable as the dust of the earth.
10現在,求你賜我智慧和聰明,好使我能在這民族面前出入,因為誰能統治你這樣大的一個民族?」10Give me wisdom and knowledge that I may come in and go out before thy people: for who can worthily judge this thy people, which is so great?
11天主對撒羅滿說:「你既有此心願,沒有求富貴、財寶、光榮,也沒有要求你敵人的性命,也沒有要求長壽,只為自己求智慧和聰明,好能治理我的民族,即我使你為王所管理的民族;11And God said to Solomon: Because this choice hath pleased thy heart, and thou hast not asked riches, and wealth, and glory, nor the lives of them that hate thee, nor many days of life: but hast asked wisdom and knowledge, to be able to judge my people, over which I have made thee king,
12為此,智慧和聰明已賜予了你,但我還願將富貴財寶和光榮賜予你,是你以前的君王從沒有過,你以後也不會再有的。」12Wisdom and knowledge are granted to thee: and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and glory, so that none of the kings before thee, nor after thee, shall be like thee.
13以後撒羅滿由基貝紅高丘,由會幕前回了耶路撒冷,治理以色列。13Then Solomon came from the high place of Gabaon to Jerusalem before the tabernacle of the covenant, and reigned over Israel.
14撒羅滿調集了戰車和騎兵,計戰車一千四百輛,騎兵一萬二千名,使他們駐守屯車城,或在耶路撒冷君王左右。14And he gathered to himself chariots and horsemen, and he had a thousand four hundred chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen: and he placed them in the cities of the chariots, and with the king in Jerusalem.
15君王在耶路撒冷積存的金銀多如石塊,香柏木多如平原的桑樹。15And the king made silver and gold to be in Jerusalem as stones, and cedar trees as sycamores, which grow in the plains in great multitude.
16撒羅滿所養的馬,都是來自慕茲黎和科厄,是君王的商人依照定價由科厄買來的。16And there were horses brought him from Egypt, and from Coa by the king's merchants, who went, and bought at a price,
17他們由慕茲黎運來的車,每輛值銀六百『協刻耳』﹔馬每匹值銀一百五十『協刻耳』。同樣,赫特諸王和阿蘭諸王所有的車馬,也都是經這些商人的手運來的。17A chariot of four horses for six hundred pieces of silver, and a horse for a hundred and fifty: in like manner market was made in all the kingdoms of the Hethites, and of the kings of Syria.
18撒羅滿決定為上主的名建造聖殿,為自己修築王宮。18
