若蘇厄書 Joshua
1默納協是若瑟的長子,他的支派抽籤分得了一份土地。默納協的長子,基肋阿得的父親瑪基爾,因為是個戰士,分得了基肋阿得和巴商。1And this lot fell to the tribe of Manasses (for he is the firstborn of Joseph) to Machir the firstborn of Manasses the father of Galaad, who was a warlike man, and had for possession Galaad and Basan.
2默納協的其餘子孫,按照家族也各得了一份:有阿彼厄責爾的子孫,赫肋克的子孫,阿斯黎耳的子孫,舍根的子孫,赫斐爾的子孫,舍米達的子孫:這些人按照家族,都是若瑟之子默納協後代的男丁。2And to the rest of the children of Manasses according to their families: to the children of Abiezer, and to the children of Helec, and to the children of Esriel, and to the children of Sechem, and to the children of Hepher, and to the children of Semida: these are the male children of Manasses the son of Joseph, by their kindreds.
3但是默納協的玄孫,瑪基爾的曾孫,基肋阿得的孫子,赫斐爾的兒子責羅斐哈得沒有兒子,只有女兒,他的女兒名叫瑪赫拉、諾阿、曷革拉、米耳加和提爾匝。3But Salphaad the son of Hepher the son of Galaad the son of Machir the son of Manasses had no sons, but only daughters: whose names are these, Maala and Noa and Hegla and Melcha and Thersa.
4她們來到司祭厄肋阿匝爾和農的兒子若蘇厄、並首領們面前說:「上主曾吩咐過梅瑟,在我們兄弟們中,也分給我們一份產業。」若蘇厄遂照上主所吩咐的,使她們在伯叔中間,也分得了一份產業。4And they came in the presence of Eleazar the priest and of Josue the son of Nun, and of the princes, saying: The Lord commanded by the hand of Moses, that a possession should be given us in the midst of our brethren. And he gave them according to the commandment of the Lord a possession amongst the brethren of their father.
5這樣,除約但河東的基肋阿得和巴商二地外,尚有十分歸屬於默納協,5And there fell ten portions to Manasses, beside the land of Galaad and Basan beyond the Jordan.
6因為默納協的孫女,在默納協的孫子中也獲得了產業;不過基肋阿得地屬於默納協其餘的子孫。6For the daughters of Manasses possessed inheritance in the midst of his sons. And the land of Galaad fell to the lot of the rest of the children of Manasses.
7默納協的地界,是從阿協爾起,到舍根對面的米革默塔特,再折向南,直達雅史布和恩塔普亞。7And the border of Manasses was from Aser, Machmethath which looketh towards Sichem: and it goeth out on the right hand by the inhabitants of the fountain of Taphua.
8塔普亞地歸默納協,但默納協邊界上的塔普亞城,卻屬厄弗辣因子孫。8For the lot of Manasses took in the land of Taphua, which is on the borders of Manasses, and belongs to the children of Ephraim.
9邊界由此向下伸至卡納谷;谷南的城市屬厄弗辣因,是厄弗辣因在默納協城市所有的城市。默納協的境界是由谷北,直到大海。9And the border goeth down to the valley of the reeds, to the south of the torrent of the cities of Ephraim, which are in the midst of the cities of Manasses: the border of Manasses is on the north side of the torrent, and the outgoings of it are at the sea:
10南面屬厄弗辣因,北面屬默納協,以海為界;北接阿協爾,東鄰依撒加爾。10So that the possession of Ephraim is on the south, and on the north that of Manasses, and the sea is the border of both, and they are joined together in the tribe of Aser on the north, and in the tribe of Issachar on the east.
11默納協在依撒加爾和阿協爾境內,有貝特商和所屬村鎮,依貝肋罕和所屬村鎮,多爾居民和所屬村鎮;還有恩多爾居民和所屬村鎮,塔納客居民和所屬村鎮,默基多居民和所屬村鎮,共三區。11And the inheritance of Manasses in Issachar and in Aser, was Bethsan and its villages, and Jeblaam with its villages, and the inhabitants of Dor, with the towns thereof: the inhabitants also of Endor with the villages thereof: and in like manner the inhabitants of Thenac with the villages thereof: and the inhabitants of Mageddo with their villages, and the third part of the city of Nopheth.
12但是默納協子孫未能將這些城中的土人趕走,因此客納罕人仍然居住在這地區內。12Neither could the children of Manasses overthrow these cities, but the Chanaanite began to dwell in his land.
13當以色列子民強盛以後,迫使客納罕人做苦工,卻沒有將他們完全趕走。13But after that the children of Israel were grown strong, they subdued the Chanaanites, and made them their tributaries, and they did not kill them.
14若瑟的子孫對若蘇厄說:「上主這樣祝福我們,我們又是人數最多的一族,你為什麼只叫我們抽一籤,分一份土地作產業呢?」14And the children of Joseph spoke to Josue, and said: Why hast thou given me but one lot and one portion to possess, whereas I am of so great a multitude, and the Lord hath blessed me?
15若蘇厄對他們說:「如果你們人數眾多,厄弗辣因山地為你們太狹小,可上培黎齊人和勒法因人的地方去,砍伐森林中的樹木。」15And Josue said to them: If thou be a great people, go up into the woodland, and cut down room for thyself in the land of the Pherezite and the Raphaims: because the possession of mount Ephraim is too narrow for thee.
16若瑟的子孫回答說:「這山區為我們仍不夠,何況住在盆地,即住在貝特商和所屬村鎮,以及住在依次勒耳盆地的一切客納罕人,都擁有鐵車。」16And the children of Joseph answered him: We cannot go up to the mountains, for the Chanaanites that dwell in the low lands, wherein are situate Bethsan with its towns, and Jezrael in the midst of the valley, have chariots of iron.
17若蘇厄對若瑟家,即對厄弗辣因和默納協人說:「你們人數眾多,勢力強大,不能只抽一籤,17And Josue said to the house of Joseph, to Ephraim and Manasses: Thou art a great people, and of great strength, thou shalt not have one lot only:
18因此山地也應歸於你們;那裡雖是森林,盡可砍伐,開闢的土地自然歸於你們。客納罕人雖然擁有鐵車,勢力強大,但你們必能將他們趕走。」18But thou shalt pass to the mountain, and shalt cut down the wood, and make thyself room to dwell in: and mayst proceed farther, when thou hast destroyed the Chanaanites, who as thou sayest have iron chariots, and are very strong.
