22:3
你们这许多日子,总没有撇离你们的弟兄,直到今日,并守了耶和华你们神所吩咐你们当守的。

22:5
只要切切地谨慎遵行耶和华仆人摩西所吩咐你们的诫命律法,爱耶和华你们的神,行他一切的道,守他的诫命,专靠他,尽心尽性事奉他。
But be very careful to keep the commandment and the law that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you: to love the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to obey his commands, to hold fast to him and to serve him with all your heart and all your soul."

玛拿西那半支派,摩西早已在巴珊分给他们地业。这半支派,约书亚在约旦河西,在他们弟兄中,分给他们地业。约书亚打发他们回帐棚的时候为他们祝福,
(To the half-tribe of Manasseh Moses had given land in Bashan, and to the other half of the tribe Joshua gave land on the west side of the Jordan with their brothers.) When Joshua sent them home, he blessed them,
22:8

22:9

22:15
他们到了基列地,见流便人,迦得人,和玛拿西半支派的人,对他们说,
When they went to Gilead-to Reuben, Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh-they said to them:
22:16
耶和华全会众这样说,你们今日转去不跟从耶和华,干犯以色列的神,为自己筑一座坛,悖逆了耶和华,这犯的是什么罪呢?
The whole assembly of the Lord says: 'How could you break faith with the God of Israel like this? How could you turn away from the Lord and build yourselves an altar in rebellion against him now?
22:17
从前拜毗珥的罪孽还算小吗?虽然瘟疫临到耶和华的会众,到今日我们还没有洗净这罪。
Was not the sin of Peor enough for us? Up to this very day we have not cleansed ourselves from that sin, even though a plague fell on the community of the Lord !
22:18
你们今日竟转去不跟从耶和华吗?你们今日既悖逆耶和华,明日他必向以色列全会众发怒。
And are you now turning away from the Lord ? " 'If you rebel against the Lord today, tomorrow he will be angry with the whole community of Israel.
22:19
你们所得为业之地,若嫌不洁净,就可以过到耶和华之地,就是耶和华的帐幕所住之地,在我们中间得地业。只是不可悖逆耶和华,也不可得罪我们,在耶和华我们神的坛以外为自己筑坛。
If the land you possess is defiled, come over to the Lord 's land, where the Lord 's tabernacle stands, and share the land with us. But do not rebel against the Lord or against us by building an altar for yourselves, other than the altar of the Lord our God.
22:20
从前谢拉的曾孙亚干岂不是在那当灭的物上犯了罪,就有忿怒临到以色列全会众吗?那人在所犯的罪中不独一人死亡。
When Achan son of Zerah acted unfaithfully regarding the devoted things, did not wrath come upon the whole community of Israel? He was not the only one who died for his sin.' "
22:21
于是流便人,迦得人,玛拿西半支派的人回答以色列军中的统领说,
Then Reuben, Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh replied to the heads of the clans of Israel:
22:22
大能者神耶和华。大能者神耶和华。他是知道的。以色列人也必知道。我们若有悖逆的意思,或是干犯耶和华(愿你今日不保佑我们),
The Mighty One, God, the Lord ! The Mighty One, God, the Lord ! He knows! And let Israel know! If this has been in rebellion or disobedience to the Lord , do not spare us this day.
22:23
为自己筑坛,要转去不跟从耶和华,或是要将燔祭,素祭,平安祭献在坛上,愿耶和华亲自讨我们的罪。
If we have built our own altar to turn away from the Lord and to offer burnt offerings and grain offerings, or to sacrifice fellowship offerings on it, may the Lord himself call us to account.
22:24
我们行这事并非无故,是特意作的,说,恐怕日后你们的子孙对我们的子孙说,你们与耶和华以色列的神有何关涉呢?
No! We did it for fear that some day your descendants might say to ours, 'What do you have to do with the Lord , the God of Israel?
22:25
因为耶和华把约旦河定为我们和你们这流便人,迦得人的交界,你们与耶和华无分了。这样,你们的子孙就使我们的子孙不再敬畏耶和华了。
The Lord has made the Jordan a boundary between us and you-you Reubenites and Gadites! You have no share in the Lord .' So your descendants might cause ours to stop fearing the Lord .
22:26
因此我们说,不如为自己筑一座坛,不是为献燔祭,也不是为献别的祭,
That is why we said, 'Let us get ready and build an altar-but not for burnt offerings or sacrifices.'
22:27
乃是为你我中间和你我后人中间作证据,好叫我们也在耶和华面前献燔祭,平安祭,和别的祭事奉他,免得你们的子孙日后对我们的子孙说,你们与耶和华无分了。
On the contrary, it is to be a witness between us and you and the generations that follow, that we will worship the Lord at his sanctuary with our burnt offerings, sacrifices and fellowship offerings. Then in the future your descendants will not be able to say to ours, 'You have no share in the Lord .'
22:28
所以我们说,日后你们对我们,或对我们的后人这样说,我们就可以回答说,你们看我们列祖所筑的坛是耶和华坛的样式。这并不是为献燔祭,也不是为献别的祭,乃是为作你我中间的证据。
And we said, 'If they ever say this to us, or to our descendants, we will answer: Look at the replica of the Lord 's altar, which our fathers built, not for burnt offerings and sacrifices, but as a witness between us and you.'
22:29
我们在耶和华我们神帐幕前的坛以外,另筑一座坛,为献燔祭,素祭,和别的祭,悖逆耶和华,今日转去不跟从他,我们断没有这个意思。
Far be it from us to rebel against the Lord and turn away from him today by building an altar for burnt offerings, grain offerings and sacrifices, other than the altar of the Lord our God that stands before his tabernacle.
22:30
祭司非尼哈与会中的首领,就是与他同来以色列军中的统领,听见流便人,迦得人,玛拿西人所说的话,就都以为美。
When Phinehas the priest and the leaders of the community-the heads of the clans of the Israelites-heard what Reuben, Gad and Manasseh had to say, they were pleased.
22:31
祭司以利亚撒的儿子非尼哈对流便人,迦得人,玛拿西人说,今日我们知道耶和华在我们中间,因为你们没有向他犯了这罪。现在你们救以色列人脱离耶和华的手了。
And Phinehas son of Eleazar, the priest, said to Reuben, Gad and Manasseh, "Today we know that the Lord is with us, because you have not acted unfaithfully toward the Lord in this matter. Now you have rescued the Israelites from the Lord 's hand."
22:32
祭司以利亚撒的儿子非尼哈与众首领离了流便人,迦得人,从基列地回往迦南地,到了以色列人那里,便将这事回报他们。
Then Phinehas son of Eleazar, the priest, and the leaders returned to Canaan from their meeting with the Reubenites and Gadites in Gilead and reported to the Israelites.
22:33
以色列人以这事为美,就称颂神,不再提上去攻打流便人,迦得人,毁坏他们所住的地了。
They were glad to hear the report and praised God. And they talked no more about going to war against them to devastate the country where the Reubenites and the Gadites lived.
22:34
流便人,迦得人给坛起名叫证坛,意思说,这坛在我们中间证明耶和华是神。
And the Reubenites and the Gadites gave the altar this name: A Witness Between Us that the Lord is God.
