撒慕爾紀(下) 2 Samuel
1此後,阿孟子民的君王死了,他的兒子哈農繼位為王。 1And it came to pass after this, that the king of the children of Ammon died, and Hanon his son reigned in his stead.
2達味心想:「我要善待納哈士的兒子哈農,像他父親善待我一樣。」於是達味派自己的臣僕去慰問他,追悼他的父親。當達味的臣僕來到阿孟子民國內時, 2And David said: I Will shew kindness to Hanon the son of Daas, as his father shewed kindness to me. So David sent his servants to comfort him for the death of his father. But when the servants of David were come into the land of the children of Ammon,
3阿孟子民的公卿,對他們的主上哈農說:「達味派人來慰問你,你想他是為尊敬你的父親嗎?達味派臣僕到你這裏來,豈不是來調查、探聽、破壞城池嗎?」 3The princes of the children of Ammon said to Hanon their lord: Thinkest thou that for the honour of thy father, David hath sent comforters to thee, and hath not David rather sent his servants to thee to search, and spy into the city, and overthrow it?
4哈農遂拿住達味的臣僕,將他們的鬍鬚剃去一半,又將他們下半截衣服割去,直到臀部;然後放他們走了。 4Wherefore Hanon took the servants of David, and shaved off the one half of their beards, and cut away half of their garments even to the buttocks, and sent them away.
5有人把這事告訴了達味,王遂打發人去迎接他們,因為這些人很覺羞恥,王便吩咐他們說:「你們暫且留在耶里哥,等鬍鬚長起後再回來。」 5When this was told David, he sent to meet them: for the men were sadly put to confusion, and David commanded them, saying: Stay at Jericho, till your beards be grown, and then return.
6阿孟子民見自己在達味跟前惹下仇恨,便遣人去,向貝特勒曷布和祚巴的阿蘭人僱了兩萬步兵,向瑪阿加君王僱了一千人,向托布人僱了一萬二千人。 6And the children of Ammon seeing that they had done an injury to David, Bent and hired the Syrians of Rohob, and the Syrians of Soba, twenty thousand footmen, and of the king of Maacha a thousand men, and of Istob twelve thousand men.
7達味聽說這事,便派出約阿布和全隊士兵和勇士。 7And when David heard this, he sent Joab and the whole army of warriors.
8阿孟子民出來,在城門前擺了陣,祚巴和勒曷布的阿蘭人和托布人與瑪阿加人,分別在田野間擺了陣。 8And the children of Ammon came out, and set their men in array at the entering in of the gate: but the Syrians of Soba, and of Rohob, and of Istob, and of Maacha were by themselves in the field.
9約阿布見自己前後受敵,就由以色列勁旅中,選一隊精兵擺陣進攻阿蘭人, 9Then Joab seeing that the battle was prepared against him, both before and behind, chose of all the choice men of Israel, and put them in array against the Syrians:
10將其餘的軍隊,交給自己的兄弟阿彼瑟指揮,叫他列陣進攻阿孟子民, 10And the rest of the people he delivered to Abisai his brother, who set them in array against the children of Ammon.
11並對他說:「若我打不下阿蘭人,你就來援助我;若你打不下阿孟子民,我就來援助你。 11And Joab said: If the Syrians are too strong for me, then thou shalt help me: but if the children of Ammon are too strong for thee, then I will help thee.
12要勇敢奮鬥,為了我們的民族,為了我們天主的城池,我們應奮鬥!願上主成就他認為好的事!」 12Be of good courage, and let us fight for our people, and for the city of our God: and the Lord will do what is good in his sight.
13然後,約阿布和跟隨他的軍隊,向前進攻阿蘭人,阿蘭人就在他們前逃走了。 13And Joab and the people that were with him, began to fight against the Syrians: and they immediately fled before him.
14阿孟子民見阿蘭人逃走,他們也在阿彼瑟前逃走,退入城中。約阿布便不再進攻阿孟子民,回了耶路撒冷。 14And the children of Ammon seeing that the Syrians were fled, they fled also before Abisai, and entered into the city: and Joab returned from the children of Ammon, and came to Jerusalem.
15阿蘭人見自己為以色列打敗,便再聯合起來。 15Then the Syrians seeing that they had fallen before Israel, gathered themselves together.
16哈達德則爾派人去,將大河那邊的阿蘭人也調來,都到了赫藍,由哈達德則爾的元帥芍巴客率領。 16And Adarezer sent and fetched the Syrians, that were beyond the river, and brought over their army: and Sobach, the captain of the host of Adarezer, was their general.
17達味一得了情報,就調集所有的以色列人,渡過約但河,來到赫藍。阿蘭人遂列陣進攻達味,與他交戰。 17And when this was told David, he gathered all Israel together, and passed over the Jordan, and came to Helam: and the Syrians set themselves in array against David, and fought against him.
18阿蘭人在以色列面前潰退。達味擊殺了阿蘭人的七百匹拉車的馬,和四萬馬兵;又攻擊了他們的元帥芍巴客,他便死在那裏。 18And the Syrians fled before Israel, and David slew of the Syrians the men of seven hundred chariots, and forty thousand horsemen: and smote Sobach the captain of the army, who presently died.
19所有臣屬哈達德則爾的王子,一見自己敗於以色列,便與以色列講和,臣服於他們;從此阿蘭人再不敢援助阿孟子民了。 19And all the kings that were auxiliaries of Adarezer, seeing themselves overcome by Israel, were afraid and fled away, eight and fifty thousand men before Israel. And they made peace with Israel: and served them, and all the Syrians were afraid to help the children of Ammon any more.
