撒慕爾紀(下) 2 Samuel
1此後,發生了一件事:達味的兒子阿貝沙隆有個妹妹,名叫塔瑪爾,很是美麗,達味的兒子阿默農很愛她。1And it came to pass after this, that Amnon the son of David loved the sister of Absalom the son of David, who was very beautiful, and her name was Thamar.
2阿默農為了他妹妹塔瑪爾的緣故,竟憂悶成疾;因為她還是處女,所以在阿默農看來,對她行事幾乎不可能。2And he was exceedingly fond of her, so that he fell sick for the love of her: for as she was a virgin, he thought it hard to do any thing dishonestly with her.
3阿默農有個朋友,名叫約納達布,是達味的兄弟史默亞的兒子。約納達布是一個很狡猾的人。3Now Amnon had a friend, named Jonadab the son of Semmaa the brother of David, a very wise man:
4他向阿默農說:「太子,為什麼你一天一天如此萎靡不振?你不肯告訴我嗎?」阿默農回答說:「我愛上我兄弟阿貝沙隆的妹妹塔瑪爾。」4And he said to him: Why dost thou grow so lean from day to day, O son of the king? why dost thou not tell me the reason of it? And Amnon said to him: I am in love with Thamar the sister of my brother Absalom.
5約納達布向他說:「你躺在床上裝病,你父親來看你時,你就對他說:我很希望我的妹妹塔瑪爾來,給我準備食物,她要在我眼前準備,叫我看著,並由她手中取食。」5And Jonadab said to him: Lie down upon thy bed, and feign thyself sick: and when thy father shall come to visit thee, say to him: Let my sister Thamar, I pray thee, come to me, to give me to eat, and to make me a mess, that I may eat it at her hand.
6阿默農就臥床裝病,君王來看他時,阿默農向君王說:「求你叫我妹妹塔瑪爾來,在我眼前做兩塊餅,好叫我從她手中取食。」6So Amnon lay down, and made as if he were sick: and when the king came to visit him, Amnon said to the king: I pray thee let my sister Thamar come, and make in my sight two little messes, that I may eat at her hand.
7達味就派人到塔瑪爾房中說:「請你到你哥哥阿默農房裡去,給他準備食物。」7Then David sent home to Thamar, saying: Come to the house of thy brother Amnon, and make him a mess.
8塔瑪爾到了她哥哥阿默農房裡,他正躺在床上。她取了麵,在他眼前和好,烤成餅。8And Thamar came to the house of Amnon her brother: but he was laid down: and she took meal and tempered it: and dissolving it in his sight she made little messes.
9她就拿過鍋來,在他面前將餅倒出,他卻推辭不吃。阿默農說:「你叫眾人都由我面前出去。」眾人就都由他面前出去了。9And taking what she had boiled, she poured it out, and set it before him, but he would not eat: and Amnon said: Put out all persons from me. And when they had put all persons out,
10阿默農對塔瑪爾說:「你給我把食物帶到內室來,好叫我由你手中取食。」塔瑪爾拿著她做的餅,進了內室,送到她哥哥阿默農前。10Amnon said to Thamar: Bring the mess into the chamber, that I may eat at thy hand. And Thamar took the little messes which she had made, and brought them in to her brother Amnon in the chamber.
11她正遞給他吃時,她就抓住她說:「我的妹妹,來與我同寢!」11And when she had presented him the meat, he took hold of her, and said: Come lie with me, my sister.
12她回答說:「我的哥哥!不可這樣,不要作賤我!在以色列不應作這樣的事,不要作這愚蠢的事!12She answered him: Do not so, my brother, do not force me: for no such thing must be done in Israel. Do not thou this folly.
13我帶著這恥辱往那裡去呢?你在以色列也成了一個愚妄人。請你向君王說明,他決不會拒絕使我屬於你的!」13For I shall not be able to bear my shame, and thou shalt be as one of the fools in Israel: but rather speak to the king, and he will not deny me to thee.
14他卻不肯聽她的話,又比她有力,就強姦了她。14But he would not hearken to her prayers, but being stronger overpowered her and lay with her.
15事後,阿默農立即十分憎恨她,並且他如今對她的憎恨,遠超過他以前對她的愛戀,就向她說:「起來,走罷!」15Then Amnon hated her with an exceeding great hatred: so that the hatred wherewith he hated her was greater than the love with which he had loved her before, And Amnon said to her: Arise, and get thee gone.
16她答說:「我的哥哥!那不可以。你趕我走,比你對我所行的,更為無理!」他卻不願聽從她,16She answered him: This evil which now thou dost against me, in driving me away, is greater than that which thou didst before. And he would not hearken to her:
17就叫服侍自己的僕人來,向他說:「把這女人從我這裡趕出去!她走後,隨鎖上門!」17But calling the servants that ministered to him, he said: Thrust this woman out from me: and shut the door after her.
18她那時穿著彩色長衣,因為君王的女兒,在未出嫁以前,昔日都是如此裝束。他的僕人將她趕出去,隨後鎖上了門。18And she was clothed with along robe: for the king's daughters that were virgins, used such kind of garments. Then his servant thrust her out: and shut the door after her.
19塔瑪爾把灰撒在頭上,撕破自己所穿的彩色長衣,雙手抱著頭,一路邊哭邊走。19And she put ashes on her head, and rent her long robe and laid her hands upon her head, and went on crying.
20她的哥哥阿貝沙隆問她說:「莫非你的哥哥阿默農與你同寢了?妹妹,暫且不要出聲,因為他是你的兄弟,不可把這事放在心上!」塔瑪爾從此就憂悶不樂,住在她哥哥阿貝沙隆家裡。20And Absalom her brother said to her: Hath thy brother Amnon lain with thee? but now, sister, hold thy peace, he is thy brother: and afflict not thy heart for this thing. So Thamar remained pining away in the house of Absalom her brother.
21達味王聽說了這一切事,十分生氣;但不願傷他兒子阿默農的心,因為他是長子,格外愛他。21And when king David heard of these things he was exceedingly grieved: and he would not afflict the spirit of his son Amnon, for he loved him, because he was his firstborn.
22至於阿貝沙隆,無論好話歹話,一句也不向阿默農說。他惱恨阿默農,因為他污辱了他妹妹塔瑪爾。22But Absalom spoke not to Amnon neither good nor evil: for Absalom hated Amnon because he had ravished his sister Thamar.
23過了兩年,當阿貝沙隆在厄弗辣因的巴耳哈祚爾剪羊毛的時節,阿貝沙隆邀請了君王所有的兒子。23And it came to pass after two years, that the sheep of Absalom were shorn in Baalhasor, which is near Ephraim: and Absalom invited all the king's sons:
24阿貝沙隆來到君王前說:「看,到了你僕人剪羊毛的時節,請君王帶著臣僕都到你僕人那裡去!」24And he came to the king, and said to him: Behold thy servant's sheep are shorn. Let the king, I pray, with his servants come to his servant.
25君王回答阿貝沙隆說:「我兒,不必如此!我們不必都去麻煩你。」他雖然懇求,君王仍不願去,只祝福了他。25And the king said to Absalom: Nay, my son, do not ask that we should all come, and be chargeable to thee. And when he pressed him, and he would not go, he blessed him.
26阿貝沙隆便說:「至少讓我的兄弟阿默農同我們一起去!」君王回答說:「為什麼要他同你一起去?」26And Absalom said: If thou wilt not come, at least let my brother Amnon, I beseech thee, come with us. And the king said to him: It is not necessary that he should go with thee.
27阿貝沙隆還是再三懇求,達味便派阿默農和君王所有的兒子,同他一起去了。阿貝沙隆擺設筵席,好像御筵。27But Absalom pressed him, so that he let Amnon and all the king's sons go with him. And Absalom made a feast as it were the feast of a king.
28阿貝沙隆吩咐他的僕人說:「你們要注意!阿默農暢飲的時候,我向你們說:刺死阿默農!你們就打死他,不要害怕,是我吩咐了你們,要大膽勇敢。」28And Absalom had commanded his servants, saying: Take notice when Amnon shall be drunk with wine, and when I shall say to you: Strike him, and kill him, fear not: for it is I that command you: take courage, and be valiant men.
29阿貝沙隆的僕人,就照他所吩咐的,對阿默農做了。君王所有的兒子遂起身,各自騎上騾子逃跑了。29And the servants of Absalom did to Amnon as Absalom had commanded them. And all the king's sons arose and got up every man upon his mule, and fled.
30他們還在路上,消息已傳到達味前說:「阿貝沙隆殺了君王所有的兒子,沒有一個幸免。」30And while they were yet in the way, a rumour came to David, saying: Absalom hath slain all the king's sons, and there is not one of them left.
31君王便起來,撕裂了自己的衣服,俯伏在地;他身邊的臣僕,也都撕裂了自己的衣服。31Then the king rose up, and rent his garments: and fell upon the ground, and all his servants, that stood about him, rent their garments.
32達味的兄弟史默亞的兒子約納達布說道:「我主不要想:所有的青年,君王所有的兒子都被殺了;其實只有阿默農一人死了。自從阿默農污辱了他的妹妹塔瑪爾那日起,阿貝沙隆就決定了這事。32But Jonadab the son of Semmaa David's brother answering, said: Let not my lord the king think that all the king's sons are slain: Amnon only is dead, for he was appointed by the mouth of Absalom from the day that he ravished his sister Thamar.
33我主君王,且不要將這事放在心上,以為君王所有的兒子都死了,因為只有阿默農一人死了。」33Now therefore let not my lord the king take this thing into his heart, saying: All the king's sons are slain: for Amnon only is dead.
34阿貝沙隆逃走了。守衛的僕人舉目一望,看見在往曷洛納因山坡的路上,有一大群人下來。守衛的就去報告君王說:「我看見一群人,從曷洛納因山坡的路上下來了。」34But Absalom fled away: and the young man that kept the watch, lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold there came much people by a by-way on the side of the mountain.
35約納達布就向君王說:「看,君王的兒子回來了,正如你僕人所說的,現在實現了。」35And Jonadab said to the king: Behold the king's sons are come: as thy servant said, so it is.
36他剛說完這話,君王的兒子都來到了,放聲大哭;君王和他的眾臣僕,也都號咷痛哭。36And when he made an end of speaking, the king's sons also appeared: and coming in they lifted up their voice, and wept: and the king also and all his servants wept very much.
37同時,阿貝沙隆逃到革叔爾王阿米胡得的兒子塔耳買那裡去了。君王天天哀悼自己的兒子。37But Absalom fled, and went to Tholomai the son of Ammiud the king of Gessur. And David mourned for his son every day.
38阿貝沙隆逃到革叔爾,在那裡住了三年。38And Absalom after he was fled, and come into Gessur, was there three years. And king David ceased to pursue after Absalom, because he was comforted concerning the death of Amnon.
39此時,君王的心漸漸不再惱怒阿貝沙隆,對阿默農的死,也不再難過了。39
