民長紀 Judges
1那時三松下到提默納;在那裏見了一個女子,她是培肋舍特人的女兒。 1Then Samson went down to Thamnatlia, and seeing there a woman of the daughters of the Philistines,
2三松上去稟告他的父母說:「我在提默納見了一個女子,她是培肋舍特人的女兒,願你們現今把她給我娶來為妻!」 2He came up, and told his father and his mother, saying: I saw a woman in Thamnatha of the daughters of the Philistines: I beseech you, take her for me to wife.
3他的父母對他說:「難道在你兄弟的女兒中,在我們民族間沒有女子嗎?為什麼你要去從那些未受割損的培肋舍特人中間娶妻呢?」三松向他的父親說:「請給我娶了她!因為我實在喜歡她。」 3And his father and mother said to him: Is there no woman among the daughters of thy brethren, or among all my people, that thou wilt take a wife of the Philistines, who are uncircumcised? And Samson said to his father: Take this woman for me, for she hath pleased my eyes.
4他的父母原不知道這事是出於上主,使他找機會攻擊培肋舍特,因為那時培肋舍特正統治以色列。 4Now his parents knew not that the thing was done by the Lord, and that he sought an occasion against the Philistines: for at that time the Philistines had dominion over Israel.
5三松往提默納去,來到提默納的葡萄園時,看,有一隻小獅子向他咆哮; 5Then Samson went down with his father and mother to Thamnatha. And when they were come to the vineyards of the town, behold a young lion met him raging and roaring.
6上主的神突然降在他身上,他當時雖赤手空拳,竟將那獅子撕裂,好像撕裂小山羊;他沒有把所作的這事告訴他的父母。 6And the spirit of the Lord came upon Samson, and he tore the lion as he would have torn a kid in pieces, having nothing at all in his hand: and he would not tell this to his father and mother.
7此後他下去同那女子談情,三松很喜愛她。 7And he went down and spoke to the woman that had pleased his eyes.
8過了不久,他回去娶她,繞路去看那隻死獅子。看,在獅子屍體內有一窩蜜蜂作了蜜。 8And after some days returning to take her, he went aside to see the carcass of the lion, and behold there was a swarm of bees in the mouth of the lion and a honeycomb.
9他取了些蜜放在手中,繼續前行,一面走一面吃;來到他父母那裏,也給他們一些,他們也吃了,但他沒有告訴他們這蜜是從獅子屍體內取來的。 9And when be had taken it in his hands, he went on eating: and coming to his father and mother, he gave them of it, and they ate: but he would not tell them, that he had taken the honey from the body of the lion.
10三松又來到那女子那裏,有人為他設了婚筵,因為青年人們慣常這樣做。 10So his father went down to the woman, and made a feast for his son Samson: for so the young men used to do.
11但有人害怕他,便請來三十個同伴陪伴他。 11And when the citizens of that place saw him, they brought him thirty companions to be with him.
12三松對他們說:「讓我給你們說個謎語,如果你們能在這七天婚筵期內,給我猜出來,我就給你們三十件襯衫和三十套禮服。 12And Samson said to them: I will propose to you a riddle, which if you declare unto me within the seven days of the feast, I will give you thirty shirts, and as many coats:
13若是你們不能給我解說,你們就得給我三十件襯衫和三十套禮服。」他們對他說:「請你把謎語講給我們聽!」 13But if you shall not be able to declare it, you shall give me thirty shirts and the same number of coats. They answered him: Put forth the riddle that we may hear it.
14他向他們說:「食者生出食品,強者生出甘甜。」他們三天之久不能解這謎語。 14And he said to them: Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness. And they could not in three days expound the riddle.
15到了第四天,他們對三松的妻子說:「請引誘你的丈夫,把謎語說給你,以免我們放火燒你和你的父家。難道你們請了我們來,是為了奪取我們的東西嗎?」 15And when the seventh day came, they said to the wife of Samson: Soothe thy husband, and persuade him to tell thee what the riddle meaneth. But if thou wilt not do it, we will burn thee, and thy father's house. Have you called us to the wedding on purpose to strip us?
16三松的妻子就在他跟前哭哭啼啼說:「你是恨我,而不是愛我!你給我的同胞說謎語,都不解給我聽。」三松對她說:「你看,我都沒有告訴我的父母,怎能告訴你?」 16So she wept before Samson and complained, saying: Thou hatest me, and dost not love me: therefore thou wilt not expound to me the riddle which thou hast proposed to the sons of my people. But he answered: I would not tell it to my father and mother, and how can I tell it to thee?
17那七天婚筵期內,她常在他跟前哭哭啼啼;到了第七天,由於她不斷的催逼,三松便將謎底告訴了她;她就把謎底告訴自己的同胞。 17So she wept before him the seven days of the feast: and at length on the seventh day as she was troublesome to him, he expounded it. And she immediately told her countrymen.
18到了第七天,在他進洞房之前,本城的人給他說:「有什麼比蜜還甜?有什麼比獅子還強?」他向他們說:「你們若不是用我的小母牛耕田,你們決不會猜出我的謎底。」 18And they on the seventh day before the sun went down said to him: What is sweeter than honey? and what is stronger than a lion? And he said to them: If you had not ploughed with my heifer, you had not found out my riddle.
19上主的神又突然降在他身上,他就下到阿市刻隆,擊殺了三十個人,拿了所劫奪的東西,把三十套禮服送給猜中謎語的人;以後憤怒地回到父親家裏。 19And the spirit of the Lord came upon him, and he went down to Ascalon, and slew there thirty men, whose garments he took away and gave to them that had declared the riddle. And being exceeding angry he went up to his father's house:
20三松的妻子以後卻跟了作他伴郎的一個同伴。 20But his wife took one of his friends and bridal companions for her husband.
