編年紀(下) 2 Chronicles
1約沙法特與列祖同眠,與祖先一同葬在達味城;他的兒子約蘭繼位為王。 1And Josaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried with them in the city of David: and Joram his son reigned in his stead.
2他的兄弟,約沙法特的兒子:哈匝黎雅、耶希耳、則加黎雅、阿匝黎雅、米加耳和舍法提雅,這些都是猶大王約沙法特的兒子, 2And he had brethren the sons of Josaphat, Azarias, and Jahiel, and Zacharias, and Azaria, and Michael, and Saphatias, all these were the sons of Josaphat king of Juda.
3他們的父親將許多禮品,金銀財寶,以及猶大的堅城分封了他們,卻將王位賜給了約蘭,因為他是長子。 3And their father gave them great gifts of silver, and of gold, and pensions, with strong cities in Juda: but the kingdom he gave to Joram, because he was the eldest.
4當約蘭登上了他父親的王位,鞏固了自己的勢力以後,就殺了他所有的兄弟,和幾個以色列首領。 4So Joram rose up over the kingdom of his father: and when he had established himself, he slew all his brethren with the sword, and some of the princes of Israel.
5約蘭即位時年三十二歲,在耶路撒冷作王八年。 5Joram was two and thirty years old when he began to reign: and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem.
6他走了以色列列王所走的道路,有如阿哈布家一樣,因為他娶了阿哈布的女兒為妻,行了上主視為惡的事。 6And he walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, as the house of Achab had done: for his wife was a daughter of Achab, and he did evil in the sight of the Lord.
7但是,上主不願消滅達味家室,因為曾與達味立過約,應許時常給他和他的子孫留下一盞明燈。 7But the Lord would not destroy the house of David: because of the covenant which he had made with him: and because he had promised to give a lamp to him, and to his sons for ever.
8約蘭年間,厄東反叛,脫離了猶大的統治,自立為王。 8In those days Edom revolted, from being subject to Juda, and made themselves a king.
9約蘭率領自己的軍長和所有的戰車前去聲討;他夜間起來,衝出了包圍他和戰車隊長的厄東人。 9And Joram went over with his princes, and all his cavalry with him, and rose in the night, and defeated the Edomites who had surrounded him, and all the captains of his cavalry.
10這樣,厄東人脫離了猶大的統治,直到現在。里貝納也同時叛變,脫離了猶大的統治,因為君王離棄了上主,他祖先的天主, 10However Edom revolted, from being under the dominion of Juda unto this day: at that time Lobna also revolted, from being under his hand. For he had forsaken the Lord the God of his fathers:
11並且在猶大山上建立了高丘,使耶路撒冷的居民行淫,使猶大人背信。 11Moreover he built also high places in the cities of Juda, and he made the inhabitants of Jerusalem to commit fornication, and Juda to transgress.
12有人給他送來厄里亞先知的一封信,信上說:「上主,你祖先達味的天主這樣說:因為你沒有走你父親約沙法特的路,又沒有走猶大王阿撒的路, 12And there was a letter brought him from Elias the prophet, in which it was written: Thus saith the Lord the God of David thy father: Because thou hast not walked in the ways of Josaphat thy father nor in the ways of Asa king of Juda,
13反而走了以色列列王的路,引誘猶大和耶路撒冷的居民行淫,如同阿哈布家行淫一樣;又因為你殺了你父親家中那些比你好的兄弟, 13But hast walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, and hast made Juda and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to commit fornication, imitating the fornication of the house of Achab, moreover also thou hast killed thy brethren, the house of thy father, better men than thyself,
14上主必以巨大的災禍打擊你的百姓,你的妻子兒女,以及你所有的財產。 14Behold the Lord will strike thee with a great plague, with all thy people, and thy children, and thy wives, and all thy substance.
15至於你,你必生一種極嚴厲的病,腸胃病,以至兩年內,你的腸子都要流出來。」 15And thou shalt be sick of a very grievous disease of thy bowels, till thy vital parts come out by little and little every day.
16上主激起培肋舍特人和臨近雇士的阿剌伯人的心,與約蘭為敵。 16And the Lord stirred up against Joram the spirit of the Philistines, and of the Arabians, who border on the Ethiopians.
17他們遂前來攻擊猶大,侵入境內,掠去了王宮所有的財物,擄去了他的兒子妻妾;除他最小的兒子約阿哈次外,沒有給他留下一個兒子。 17And they came up into the land of Juda, and wasted it, and they carried away all the substance that was found in the king's house, his sons also, and his wives: so that there was no son left him but Joachaz, who was the youngest.
18此後,上主以一種不能醫治的腸胃病打擊了約蘭。 18And besides all this the Lord struck him with an incurable disease in his bowels.
19這病纏綿了一年多;二年末,當他的終期來到時,他的腸子因病都流了出來,他在極苦痛中死了。他的百姓沒有為他舉行焚香禮,如同為他的列祖所行的一樣。 19And as day came after day, and time rolled on, two whole years passed: then after being wasted with a long consumption, so as to void his very bowels, his disease ended with his life. And he died of a most wretched illness, and the people did not make a funeral for him according to the manner of burning, as they had done for his ancestors.
20他即位時年三十二歲,在耶路撒冷作王八年。他逝世後,無人表示悲哀。人將他葬於達味城,但沒有葬在王陵內。 20He was two and thirty years old when he began his reign, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem. And he walked not rightly, and they buried him in the city of David: but not in the sepulchres of the kings.
