編年紀(下) 2 Chronicles
1這一切完成以後,所有在場的以色列人就都出去,到猶大各城,將石柱搗碎,將木偶砍倒,將猶大、本雅明、厄弗辣因和默納協各地的高丘和香壇完全拆除;以後,所有的以色列子民各回了本城,各歸己業。1And when these things had been duly celebrated, all Israel that were found in the cities of Juda, went out, and they broke the idols, and cut down the groves. demolished the high places, and destroyed the altars, not only out of all Juda and Benjamin, but out of Ephraim also and Manasses, till they had utterly destroyed them: then all the children of Israel returned to their possessions and cities.
2希則克雅又整編了司祭和肋未人的班次,使司祭和肋未人各照自己的班次,各照自己的任務,獻全燔祭與和平祭,或服務於上主的營幕門口,稱謝讚頌上主。2And Ezechias appointed companies of the priests, and the Levites, by their courses, every man in his own office, to wit, both of the priests, and of the Levites, for holocausts, and for peace offerings, to minister, and to praise, and to sing in the gates of the camp of the Lord.
3君王又由自己的產業中劃出一份,作為早晚的全燔祭,安息日、新月和節期的全燔祭,如上主法律上所規定的;3And the king's part was, that of his proper substance the holocaust should be offered always morning and evening, and on the sabbaths, and the new moons and the other solemnities, as it is written in the law of Moses.
4又吩咐住在耶路撒冷的百姓,交出司祭和肋未人所應得的一分,令他們堅守上主的法律。4He commanded also the people that dwelt in Jerusalem, to give to the priests, and the Levites their portion, that they might attend to the law of the Lord.
5這道諭旨一出,以色列子民便獻了許多初熟的五穀、新酒、油、蜜,以及田地的出產;同時將所有物的十分之一,也大批的送了來,5Which when it was noised abroad in the ears of the people, the children of Israel offered in abundance the firstfruits of corn, wine, and oil, and honey: and brought the tithe of all things which the ground bringeth forth.
6連住在猶大各城的以色列和猶大子民,也將牛羊的十分之一,並應獻於上主,他們天主的聖物的十分之一,都送了來,堆積成堆;6Moreover the children of Israel and Juda, that dwelt in the cities of Juda, brought in the tithes of oxen, and sheep, and the tithes of holy things, which they had vowed to the Lord their God: and carrying them all, made many heaps.
7由三月開始堆積,至七月纔完畢。7In the third month they began to lay the foundations of the heaps, and in the seventh month, they finished them.
8希則克雅和首領們前來,看見這些堆積之物,便稱讚了上主和他的百姓以色列。8And when Ezechias and his princes came in, they saw the heaps, and they blessed the Lord and the people of Israel.
9希則克雅向司祭和肋未人問及這些堆積之物,9And Ezechias asked the priests and the Levites, why the heaps lay so.
10匝多克家的司祭之長阿匝黎雅答說:「自從人民將供物獻入上主的殿內以來,我們不但可以飽食,而且還有許多剩餘,因為上主祝福了他的百姓;這一大堆全是剩餘的。」10Azarias the chief priest of the race of Sadoc answered him, saying: Since the firstfruits began to be offered in the house of the Lord, we have eaten, and have been filled, and abundance is left, because the Lord hath blessed his people: and of that which is left is this great store which thou seest.
11希則克雅吩咐在上主殿內預備倉房;人便預備了,11Then Ezechias commanded to prepare storehouses in the house of the Lord. And when they had done so,
12細心將供物和什一之物,以及奉獻的聖物,都搬入倉內。肋未人苛納尼雅為總管,他的兄弟史米為副。12They brought in faithfully both the firstfruits, and the tithes, and all they had vowed. And the overseer of them was Chonenias the Levite, and Semei his brother was the second,
13耶希耳、阿匝齊雅、納哈特、阿撒耳、耶黎摩特、約匝巴得、厄里耳、依斯瑪基雅、瑪哈特和貝納雅,在苛納尼雅和他兄弟史米之下作督察,全是由君王希則克雅和上主殿宇的主席阿匝黎雅所委任的。13And after him Jehiel, and Azarias, and Nahath, and Asael, and Jerimoth, and Jozabad, and Eliel, and Jesmachias, and Mahath, and Banaias, overseers under the hand of Chonenias, and Semei his brother, by the commandment of Ezechias the king, and Azarias the high priest of the house of God, to whom all things appertained.
14守東門的肋未人,依默納的兒子科勒,掌管自願捐獻於天主的禮品,發放獻於上主的供物和至聖之物;14But Core the son of Jemna the Levite, the porter of the east gate, was overseer of the things which were freely offered to the Lord, and of the firstfruits and the things dedicated for the holy of holies.
15他以下有厄登、本雅明、耶叔亞、舍瑪雅、阿瑪黎雅和舍加尼雅,在各司祭城內,按照班次,不分老幼,將物品細心分發給他們的弟兄。15And under his charge were Eden, and Benjamin, Jesue, and Semeias, and Amarias, and Sechenias, in the cities of the priests, to distribute faithfully portions to their brethren, both little and great:
16此外,又登記了每日進上主殿,依照班次盡職,三十歲以上的男子:16Besides the males from three years old and upward, to all that went into the temple of the Lord, and whatsoever there was need of in the ministry, and their offices according to their courses, day by day.
17司祭依照家族登記;二十歲以上的肋未人,依照職分班次登記。17To the priests by their families, and to the Levites from the twentieth year and upward, by their classes and companies.
18登記時,他們全家妻子兒女,都應包括在內,因為他們都應自潔成聖。18And to all the multitude, both to their wives, and to their children of both sexes, victuals were given faithfully out of the things that had been sanctified.
19至於那住在各城郊外作司祭的亞郎子孫,在各城內有指定的人,給司祭中的男子及登記的肋未人,發放應得的一份。19Also of the sons of Aaron who were in the fields and in the suburbs of each city, there were men appointed, to distribute portions to all the males, among the priests and the Levites.
20希則克雅在全猶大行事都是如此:行了上主他的天主視為善,視為正,視為義的事。20So Ezechias did all things, which we have said in all Juda, and wrought that which was good; and right, and truth, before the Lord his God,
21凡他著手所行的,不論是關於上主殿內的敬禮,或關於法律和誡命,都是為了尋求他的天主;凡他誠心所行的,無不順利。21In all the service of the ministry of the house of the Lord according to the law and the ceremonies, desiring to seek his God with all his heart, and he did it and prospered,
