户籍纪 Numbers
1上主训示梅瑟说:1And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:
2「你吩咐司祭亚郎的儿子厄肋阿匝尔,叫他将一切火盘从火堆中取去,把炭火散开,因为这一切都是圣的。2Speak to the children of Israel, and take of every one of them a rod by their kindreds, of all the princes of the tribes, twelve rods, and write the name of every man upon his rod.
3以这些犯罪丧生者的火盘,打成薄片,用来包盖祭坛,──因为奉献在上主面前的火盘已成了圣的,──给以色列子民当作鉴戒。」3And the name of Aaron shall be for the tribe of Levi, and one rod shall contain all their families:
4厄肋阿匝尔司祭便取出那些被火烧死的人献过的铜火盘,叫人打成薄片,为包盖祭坛用,4And thou shalt lay them up in the tabernacle of the covenant before the testimony, where I will speak to thee.
5为给以色列子民当作警戒,为叫凡不是出于亚郎子孙的俗人,不应前来在上主面前献香,以免和科辣黑及他的同党遭受一样的不幸。他全照上主藉梅瑟对他所吩咐的做了。5Whomsoever of these I shall choose, his rod shall blossom: and I will make to cease from me the murmurings of the children of Israel, wherewith they murmur against you.
6次日,以色列子民全会众抱怨梅瑟和亚郎说:「正是你们害死了上主的人民。」6And Moses spoke to the children of Israel: and all the princes gave him rods one for every tribe: and there were twelve rods besides the rod of Aaron.
7当会众集合反对梅瑟和亚郎时,他们二人转向会幕;看,云彩遮盖了会幕,上主的荣耀发显了出来。7And when Moses had laid them up before the Lord in the tabernacle of the testimony:
8梅瑟和亚郎遂走到会幕前面,8He returned on the following day, and found that the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi, was budded: and that the buds swelling it had bloomed blossoms, which spreading the leaves, were formed into almonds.
9上主吩咐梅瑟说:9Moses therefore brought out all the rods from before the Lord to all the children of Israel: and they saw, and every one received their rods.
10「你们快离开这会众,我要立即消灭他们。」他们遂俯伏在地,10And the Lord said to Moses: Carry back the rod of Aaron into the tabernacle of the testimony, that it may be kept there for a token of the rebellious children of Israel, and that their complaints may cease from me lest they die.
11然后梅瑟向亚郎说:「你快拿火盘,由祭坛取火放在盘里,添上乳香,快拿到会众那里去,为他们行赎罪礼,因为忿怒已由上主面前发出,灾祸已经开始。」11And Moses did as the Lord had commanded.
12亚郎遂照梅瑟所吩咐的拿了火盘,急忙跑到会众中;看,灾祸已在人民中开始;他遂添上乳香,为人民行赎罪礼,12And the children of Israel said to Moses: Behold we are consumed, we all perish.
13站在死者和生者之中,直到灾祸止息。13Whosoever approacheth to the tabernacle of the Lord, he dieth. Are we all to a man to be utterly destroyed?
14在这次灾祸中死了一万四千七百,为科辣黑的缘故而死的人,还不在内。14
15亚郎于是回到会幕门口梅瑟那里,因为灾祸已止息了。15
16上主训示梅瑟说:16
17「你吩咐以色列子民,叫他们每一家族拿一根棍杖,就是每一个领袖为自己家族拿一根,共十二根棍杖,把各人的名字写在自己的棍杖上;17
18但在肋未的棍杖上,要写亚郎的名字,因为为肋未的族长亦应有一根棍杖。18
19你将这些棍杖放在会幕内,放在约证前,即在我与你常相会的地方。19
20谁的棍杖开花,谁就是我所拣选的人;这样,我就平息了以色列子民在我面前抱怨你们的怨言。」20
21梅瑟于是告诉了以色列子民;他们所有的领袖都交给了他一根棍杖;每一家族中,每个领袖一根,共十二根棍杖;在他们的棍杖中,也有亚郎的棍杖。21
22梅瑟就将棍杖放在约幕内,放在上主面前。22
23次日,梅瑟进入约幕内看,肋未家族的亚郎的棍杖发了芽;不但发了芽,而且开了花,结了成熟的杏。23
24梅瑟就由上主面前取出所有的棍杖,给所有以色列子民观看;以后各人取回了自己的棍杖。24
25上主对梅瑟说:「收回亚郎的棍杖来,放在约证前,留给叛逆之徒当作鉴戒,为平息他们对我发的怨言,免得他们死亡。」25
26梅瑟就这样作了;上主怎样吩咐他,他就怎样做了。26
27以色列子民对梅瑟申诉说:「看,我们要死了,我们完了!我们全完了!27
28凡接近上主帐幕的都该死;我们岂不都该死?」28
