撒慕爾紀(下) 2 Samuel
1年初,正當諸王出征的季節,達味派約阿布率領他的將官和全以色列人出征;他們蹂躪了阿孟子民,就包圍辣巴。當時達味住在耶路撒冷。1And it came to pass at the return of the year, at the time when kings go forth to war, that David sent Joab and his servants with him, and all Israel, and they spoiled the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabba: but David remained in Jerusalem.
2一天傍晚,達味由床上起來,在宮殿的房頂上散步;從房頂上看見一個女人在沐浴,這女人容貌很美。2In the mean time it happened that David arose from his bed after noon, and walked upon the roof of the king's house: and he saw from the roof of his house a woman washing herself, over against him: and the woman was very beautiful.
3達味遂派人打聽那女人是誰;有人告訴他說:「這不是厄里安的女兒,赫特人烏黎雅的妻子巴特舍巴嗎?」3And the king sent, and inquired who the woman was. And it was told him, that she was Bethsabee the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Urias the Hethite.
4達味就派人將她接來;她來到他那裡,達味就與她同寢,那時她的月經剛潔淨了。事後,她便回了家。4And David sent messengers, and took her, and she came in to him, and he slept with her: and presently she was purified from her uncleanness:
5不久,那女人自覺懷孕,就打發人告訴達味說:「我懷了孕。」5And she returned to her house having conceived. And she sent and told David, and said: I have conceived.
6達味派人給約阿布說:「打發赫特人烏黎雅來見我。」約阿布就打發烏黎雅去見達味。6And David sent to Joab, saying: Send me Urias the Hethite. And Joab sent Urias to David.
7烏黎雅一來到他跟前,達味就問:「約阿布近來如何?士兵好嗎?戰事怎樣?」7And Urias came to David. And David asked how Joab did, and the people, and how the war was carried on.
8達味向烏黎雅說:「你下到家中洗洗腳罷!」烏黎雅剛離開王宮,隨後就送來了王的飲食。8And David said to Urias: Go into thy house, and wash thy feet. And Urias went out from the king's house, and there went out after him a mess of meat from the king.
9烏黎雅卻同他主人的僕役一起睡在宮門旁,沒有下到家裡。9But Urias slept before the gate of the king's house, with the other servants of his lord, and went not down to his own house.
10有人報告達味說:「烏黎雅並沒有回到自己家裡。」達味便向烏黎雅說:「你不是由遠道回來的嗎?為什麼不下到你家裡去呢?」10And it was told David by some that said: Urias went not to his house. And David said to Urias: Didst thou not come from thy journey? why didst thou not go down to thy house?
11烏黎雅回答達味說:「約櫃、以色列和猶大人都住在帳幕裡,我主約阿布和我主的僕人都在野外露宿,我豈能回家吃喝,和我妻子一起睡覺?上主永在,陛下萬歲!我決不做這樣的事。」11And Urias said to David: The ark of God and Israel and Juda dwell in tents, and my lord Joab and the servants of my lord abide upon the face of the earth: and shall I go into my house, to eat and to drink, and to sleep with my wife? By thy welfare and by the welfare of thy soul I will not do this thing.
12達味向烏黎雅說:「今天你還留在這裡,明天我要打發你回去。」烏黎雅那一天就留在耶路撒冷。第二天,12Then David said to Urias: Tarry here today, and tomorrow I will send thee away. Urias tarried in Jerusalem that day and the next.
13達味召他來與自己一起宴飲,將他灌醉。傍晚,烏黎雅出去,仍與他主人的僕役睡在一起,並沒有到家裡去。13And David called him to eat and to drink before him, and he made him drunk: and he went out in the evening, and slept on his couch with the servants of his lord, and went not down into his house.
14到了早晨,達味給約阿布寫了一封信,要烏黎雅親手帶去。14And when the morning was come, David wrote a letter to Joab: and sent it by the hand of Urias,
15他在信上寫說:「你應派烏黎雅到戰事最激烈的前線,然後,在他後邊撤退,讓他受攻擊陣亡。」15Writing in the letter: Set ye Urias in the front of the battle, where the fight is strongest: and leave ye him, that he may be wounded and die.
16約阿布查看那城以後,知道那裡有最強悍的敵人,就派烏黎雅到那裡去了。16Wherefore as Joab was besieging the city, he put Urias in the place where he knew the bravest men were.
17城內的人出來,與約阿布交戰,達味的僕役中,有些人陣亡了,赫特人烏黎雅也陣亡了。17And the men coming out of the city, fought against Joab, and there fell some of the people of the servants of David, and Urias the Hethite was killed also.
18約阿布派人去向達味報告這次戰事的一切經過,18Then Joab sent, and told David all things concerning the battle.
19他吩咐使者說:「若你把戰事的經過向君王報告完了以後,19And he charged the messenger, saying: When thou hast told all the words of the battle to the king,
20王若向你發怒說:為什麼你們靠近城牆作戰?你們不知道有人會由城牆上射擊嗎?20If thou see him to be angry, and he shall say: Why did you approach so near to the wall to fight? knew you not that many darts are thrown from above off the wall?
21誰擊殺了耶魯巴耳的兒子阿彼默肋客?不是一個女人從城牆上把一塊磨石丟在他身上,他就死在特貝茲嗎?為什麼你們靠近城牆呢?你就答說:你的僕人赫特人烏黎雅也陣亡了。」21Who killed Abimelech the son of Jerobaal? did not a woman cast a piece of a millstone upon him from the wall, and slew him in Thebes? Why did you go near the wall? Thou shalt say: Thy servant Urias the Hethite is also slain.
22使者就前來見達味,把約阿布打發他報告的一切全向達味報告了。達味對約阿布大怒,向使者說:「你們為什麼靠近城牆作戰?你們不知道有人會由城牆上射擊嗎?誰擊殺了耶魯巴耳的兒子阿彼默肋客?不是一個女人從城牆上把一塊磨石丟在他身上,他就死在特貝茲嗎?為什麼你們靠近城牆呢?」22So the messenger departed, and came and told David all that Joab had commanded him.
23報信的人向達味說:「那些人向我們衝來,下到平原來攻打我們,我們就追擊他們一直到城門邊,23And the messenger said to David: The men prevailed against us, and they came out to us into the field: and we vigorously charged and pursued them even to the gate of the city.
24射手就從城墻上射擊我們。君王的僕役大約死了十八人,你的僕人烏黎雅,那個赫特人也死了。」24And the archers shot their arrows at thy servants from off the wall above: and some of the king's servants are slain, and thy servant Urias the Hethite is also dead.
25達味向報信的人說:「你去告訴約阿布說:不必對這事過於傷心,因為刀劍有時砍這人,也有時砍那人;你只管加緊攻城,將城毀滅。你要鼓勵他!」25And David said to the messenger: Thus shalt thou say to Joab: Let not this thing discourage thee: for various is the event of war: and sometimes one, sometimes another is consumed by the sword: encourage thy warriors against The city, and exhort them that thou mayest overthrow it.
26烏黎雅的妻子聽說他丈夫陣亡了,就為他丈夫舉哀。26And the wife of Urias heard that Urias her husband was dead, and she mourned for him.
27居喪期一滿,達味就派人將她接到自己的宮中,成了他的妻子,給他生了一個兒子。達味這樣行事,使上主大為不悅。27And the mourning being over, David sent and brought her into his house, and she became his wife, and she bore him a son: and this thing which David had done, was displeasing to the Lord.
