編年紀(下) 2 Chronicles
1撒羅滿祈禱了,有火從天上降下,焚燒了全燔祭和其他的犧牲;上主的榮耀充滿了聖殿。1And when Solomon had made an end of his prayer, fire came down from heaven, and consumed the holocausts and the victims: and the majesty of the Lord tilled the house.
2由於上主的榮耀充滿了上主的殿,司祭不能進入上主的殿。2Neither could the priests enter into the temple of the Lord, because the majesty of the Lord had filled the temple of the Lord.
3所有的以色列子民看見有火降下,上主的榮耀充滿了聖殿,便俯伏在石鋪的地上,叩拜頌上主說:「因為他是聖善的,因為他的仁慈永遠常存。」3Moreover all the children of Israel saw the fire coming down, and the glory of the Lord upon the house: and falling down with their faces to the ground, upon the stone pavement, they adored and praised the Lord: because he is good, because his mercy endureth for ever.
4君王和眾百姓在上主面前祭殺了犧牲。4And the king and all the people sacrificed victims before the Lord.
5撒羅滿王那時祭殺了二萬二千頭牛,十二萬隻羊;這樣君王和全百姓為上主的聖殿行了奉獻禮。5And king Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty-two thousand oxen, and one hundred and twenty thousand rams: and the king and all the people dedicated the house of God.
6司祭各自站在自己的崗位上,肋未人拿著達味王所製的上主的樂器,奏「因為他的仁慈永遠常存」稱頌上主的歌;這讚美歌是達味令他們唱的;司祭們面對著他們吹號筒,同時全以色列人都站立不動。6And the priests stood in their offices: and the Levites with the instruments of music of the Lord, which king David made to praise the Lord: because his mercy endureth for ever, singing the hymns of David by their ministry: and the priests sounded with trumpets before them, and all Israel stood.
7撒羅滿祝聖了上主殿前的內院,在那裡,獻了全燔祭與和平祭的脂油,因為他製造的銅壇容不下那麼多全燔祭、素祭和脂油。7Solomon also sanctified the middle of the court before the temple of the Lord: for he offered there the holocausts, and the fat of the peace offerings: because the brazen altar, which he had made, could not hold the holocausts and the sacrifices and the fat:
8那時,撒羅滿舉行慶節七天之久,所有由哈瑪特渡口到埃及小河的以色列百姓,都與他在一起,實是一大集會。8And Solomon kept the solemnity at that time seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great congregation, from the entrance of Emath to the torrent of Egypt.
9第八天又舉行了盛大的集會,如此舉行獻壇禮七天,過節七天。9And he made on the eighth day a solemn assembly, because he had kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and had celebrated the solemnity seven days.
10七月二十三日,君王遣散了民眾。他們因上主對達味、撒羅滿和他的百姓以色列所施的恩惠,都滿懷歡樂,回了自己的帳幕。10So on the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he sent away the people to their dwellings, joyful and glad for the good that the Lord had done to David, and to Solomon, and to all Israel his people.
11撒羅滿完成了上主的殿和王宮,凡撒羅滿心中要在上主的殿和自己的宮內所作的,都順利完成了。11And Solomon finished the house of the Lord, and the king's house, and all that he had designed in his heart to do, in the house of the Lord, and in his own house, and he prospered.
12夜間上主顯示給撒羅滿,對他說:「我已聽了你的祈禱,我也為我揀選了這地方作為祭祀的大殿。12And the Lord appeared to him by night, and said: I have heard thy prayer, and I have chosen this place to myself for a house of sacrifice.
13我如果使天閉塞不雨,或使蝗蟲吞吃這地,或使瘟疫在我百姓中間流行,13If I shut up heaven, and there fall no rain, or if I give orders, and command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people:
14這稱為我名下的百姓,如果謙遜祈禱,尋求我的面,遠離自己的惡行,我必從天上俯聽,寬恕他們的罪過,使他們的土地生產。14And my people, upon whom my name is called, being converted, shall make supplication to me, and seek out my face, and do penance for their most wicked ways: then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins and will heal their land.
15自今以後,我必睜眼垂顧,側耳諦聽在此處發出的祈禱。15My eyes also shall be open, and my ears attentive to the prayer of him that shall pray in this place.
16現今我已選擇這殿,予以祝聖,使我的名永遠在這殿中;我的眼和我的心,也時時留在那裡。16For I have chosen, and have sanctified this place, that my name may be there for ever, and my eyes and my heart may remain there perpetually.
17至於你,如果你在我面前行走,像你父親達味那樣行走,遵行我吩咐你的一切,恪守我的法律和典章,17And as for thee, if thou walk before me, as David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and keep my justices and my judgments:
18我必鞏固你的王位,一如我應許你父親達味所說:你的子孫中,決斷不了有人作以色列的統治者。18I will raise up the throne of thy kingdom, as I promised to David thy father, saying: There shall not fail thee a man of thy stock to be ruler in Israel.
19但是,如果你們遠離我,離棄我在你們前所頒佈的法律和誡命,而去服待敬拜別的神,19But if you turn away, and forsake my justices, and my commandments which I have set before you, and shall go and serve strange gods, and adore them,
20我必將你們從我賜予你們的地上根除,且要拋棄這座為我名而祝聖的殿,毫不顧惜,使它成為萬民和笑談和話柄。20I will pluck you up by the root out of my land which I have given you: and this house which I have sanctified to my name, I will cast away from before my face, and will make it a byword, and an example among all nations.
21這殿雖然宏大,凡經過的人必將驚愕說:上主為什麼這樣對待了這地方和這座殿?21And this house shall be for a proverb to all that pass by, and they shall be astonished and say: Why hath the Lord done thus to this land, and to this house?
22人必回答說:是因為他們離棄了領他們出離埃及地的上主,他們祖先的天主,而歸依、崇拜、服侍了別的神;為此,上主使這一切災禍臨到他們身上。」22And they shall answer: Because they forsook the Lord the God of their fathers, who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on strange gods, and adored them, and worshipped them: therefore all these evils are come upon them.
