約書亞記 Joshua


Chapter Verses
5:1
约旦河西亚摩利人的诸王和靠海迦南人的诸王,听见耶和华在以色列人前面使约旦河的水干了,等到我们过去,他们的心因以色列人的缘故就消化了,不再有胆气。
Now when all the Amorite kings west of the Jordan and all the Canaanite kings along the coast heard how the Lord had dried up the Jordan before the Israelites until we had crossed over, their hearts melted and they no longer had the courage to face the Israelites.
5:2
那时,耶和华吩咐约书亚说,你制造火石刀,第二次给以色列人行割礼。
At that time the Lord said to Joshua, "Make flint knives and circumcise the Israelites again."
5:3
约书亚就制造了火石刀,在除皮山那里给以色列人行割礼。
So Joshua made flint knives and circumcised the Israelites at Gibeath Haaraloth.
5:4
约书亚行割礼的缘故,是因为从埃及出来的众民,就是一切能打仗的男丁,出了埃及以后,都死在旷野的路上。
Now this is why he did so: All those who came out of Egypt-all the men of military age-died in the desert on the way after leaving Egypt.
5:5
因为出来的众民都受过割礼。惟独出埃及以后,在旷野的路上所生的众民都没有受过割礼。
All the people that came out had been circumcised, but all the people born in the desert during the journey from Egypt had not.
5:6
以色列人在旷野走了四十年,等到国民,就是出埃及的兵丁,都消灭了,因为他们没有听从耶和华的话。耶和华曾向他们起誓,必不容他们看见耶和华向他们列祖起誓,应许赐给我们的地,就是流奶与蜜之地。
The Israelites had moved about in the desert forty years until all the men who were of military age when they left Egypt had died, since they had not obeyed the Lord . For the Lord had sworn to them that they would not see the land that he had solemnly promised their fathers to give us, a land flowing with milk and honey.
5:7
他们的子孙,就是耶和华所兴起来接续他们的,都没有受过割礼。因为在路上没有给他们行割礼,约书亚这才给他们行了。
So he raised up their sons in their place, and these were the ones Joshua circumcised. They were still uncircumcised because they had not been circumcised on the way.
5:8
国民都受完了割礼,就住在营中自己的地方,等到痊愈了。
And after the whole nation had been circumcised, they remained where they were in camp until they were healed.
5:9
耶和华对约书亚说,我今日将埃及的羞辱从你们身上滚去了。因此,那地方名叫吉甲,直到今日(吉甲就是滚的意思)。
Then the Lord said to Joshua, "Today I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you." So the place has been called Gilgal to this day.
5:10
以色列人在吉甲安营。正月十四日晚上,在耶利哥的平原守逾越节。
On the evening of the fourteenth day of the month, while camped at Gilgal on the plains of Jericho, the Israelites celebrated the Passover.
5:11
逾越节的次日,他们就吃了那地的出产。正当那日吃无酵饼和烘的谷。
The day after the Passover, that very day, they ate some of the produce of the land: unleavened bread and roasted grain.
5:12
他们吃了那地的出产,第二日吗哪就止住了,以色列人也不再有吗哪了。那一年,他们却吃迦南地的出产。
The manna stopped the day after they ate this food from the land; there was no longer any manna for the Israelites, but that year they ate of the produce of Canaan.
5:13
约书亚靠近耶利哥的时候,举目观看,不料,有一个人手里有拔出来的刀,对面站立。约书亚到他那里,问他说,你是帮助我们呢?是帮助我们敌人呢?
Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, "Are you for us or for our enemies?"
5:14
他回答说,不是的,我来是要作耶和华军队的元帅。约书亚就俯伏在地下拜,说,我主有什么话吩咐仆人。
Neither, he replied, "but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now come." Then Joshua fell facedown to the ground in reverence, and asked him, "What message does my Lord have for his servant?"
5:15
耶和华军队的元帅对约书亚说,把你脚上的鞋脱下来,因为你所站的地方是圣的。约书亚就照着行了。
The commander of the Lord 's army replied, "Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy." And Joshua did so.
