1當以色列人住在史廷的時候,民眾開始與摩阿布女子行淫。1Israel settled at Shittim and the men began to enjoy themselves with the Moabite women and to have sex with them.
2這些女子請民眾參與她們神祇的祭祀;民眾吃了供物,且朝拜了她們的神祇。2These women invited the people to the sacrifices of their gods. There the people ate and bowed down before their gods.
3這樣以色列人就歸依了巴耳培敖爾,上主因此對以色列大發忿怒。3The Israelites prostituted themselves to the god of Peor, so Yahweh's anger flared against them.
4上主對梅瑟說:「你捉住民眾中所有的罪魁,在光天化日之下,為上主將他們懸掛起來,好挽回上主對以色列的怒火。」4He said to Moses, "Take all the leaders of these people and hang them in broad daylight before Yahweh, so that his fierce anger may turn away from Israel."
5梅瑟就吩咐以色列的各首長說:「你們每人應將自己家中歸依巴耳培敖爾的人殺死。」5So Moses told the Israelite judges, "Each of you shall slay any of your men who have joined in worshiping the Baal of Peor."
6看,當梅瑟和以色列子民全會眾都在會幕門口流淚痛哭時,以色列子民中正有一人,當著他們的面,帶了一個米德楊女人到他兄弟那裡去。6Then a man, an Israelite, came back bringing a Midianite woman to his family in view of Moses and the Israelite community while they were weeping at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.
7大司祭亞郎的兒子厄肋阿匝爾的兒子丕乃哈斯一見,就由會眾中起來,順手拿了一把長槍,7When Phinehas, a son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest saw this, he left the assembly, took a spear in his hand
8跟那以色列人進入臥室內,刺穿了他們兩人,即那以色列人和那女人的肚腹;以色列子民間的災禍遂止息了。8and followed the Israelite into the tent. There he drove the spear through both the man and the woman. So the plague against the Israelites was checked
9在這次災禍內,死去了二萬四千人。9but those who had already died numbered twenty-four thousand.
10上主於是訓示梅瑟說;10Yahweh spoke to Moses,
11「大司祭亞郎的孫子,厄肋阿匝爾的兒子丕乃哈斯,由以色列子民身上挽回了我的忿怒,因為他在他們中,懷著與我同樣的嫉邪的心,因此我沒有因我嫉邪之心消滅了以色列子民。11"Phinehas, son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, has turned away the blows of my anger from the sons of Israel, zealous as he was for me; he has defended my honor among you. Because of this, I did not feel zealous for my honor so that I should destroy the people of Israel.
12為此你應聲明:看,我與他結平安的盟約。12Therefore tell him that I am making with him a covenant of friendship.
13這為他和他的後裔,是永享司祭品位的盟約,因為他為了自己天主的原故,嫉惡如仇,賠補了以色列子民的罪。」13I grant to him and his descendants that they be my priests forever, because he was zealous for his God and made atonement for the sons of Israel."
14那與米德楊女人一同被殺的以色列人,名叫齊默黎,是撒路的兒子,西默盎家族的族長。14The Israelite slain with the Midianite woman was Zimri, son of Salu, a leader of a Simeonite family.
15那被殺的米德楊女人,名叫苛次彼,是族爾的女兒;族爾是米德楊族一部落的酋長。15And the name of the Midianite woman who was slain was Cozbi, daughter of Zur, a tribal chief of a Midianite family.
16事後,上主訓示梅瑟說:16Yahweh said to Moses,
17「你應圍攻米德楊人,打擊他們,17"Attack the Midianites and crush them,
18因為他們用詭計打擊了你們,就是在培敖爾的事上,並在他們的姊妹,米德楊酋長的女兒苛次彼的事上,欺騸了你們。──這女子已在培敖爾的事上,在災禍之日被殺。」18for they have been your enemies, deceiving you with regard to Peor and with regard to Cozbi, their kinswoman, daughter of a Midianite leader, who was slain on the day of the plague because of Peor." After the plague, it happened that...
