Chapter Verses < 前一章 目录 下一章 >
6:1
耶和华的约柜在非利士人之地七个月。
When the ark of the Lord had been in Philistine territory seven months,
6:2
非利士人将祭司和占卜的聚了来,问他们说,我们向耶和华的约柜应当怎样行。请指示我们用何法将约柜送回原处。
the Philistines called for the priests and the diviners and said, "What shall we do with the ark of the Lord ? Tell us how we should send it back to its place."
6:3
他们说,若要将以色列神的约柜送回去,不可空空地送去,必要给他献赔罪的礼物,然后你们可得痊愈,并知道他的手为何不离开你们。
They answered, "If you return the ark of the god of Israel, do not send it away empty, but by all means send a guilt offering to him. Then you will be healed, and you will know why his hand has not been lifted from you."
6:4
非利士人说,应当用什么献为赔罪的礼物呢?他们回答说,当照非利士首领的数目,用五个金痔疮,五个金老鼠,因为在你们众人和你们首领的身上都是一样的灾。
The Philistines asked, "What guilt offering should we send to him?" They replied, "Five gold tumors and five gold rats, according to the number of the Philistine rulers, because the same plague has struck both you and your rulers.
6:5
所以当制造你们痔疮的像和毁坏你们田地老鼠的像,并要归荣耀给以色列的神,或者他向你们和你们的神,并你们的田地,把手放轻些。
Make models of the tumors and of the rats that are destroying the country, and pay honor to Israel's god. Perhaps he will lift his hand from you and your gods and your land.
6:6
你们为何硬着心像埃及人和法老一样呢?神在埃及人中间行奇事,埃及人岂不释放以色列人,他们就去了吗?
Why do you harden your hearts as the Egyptians and Pharaoh did? When he treated them harshly, did they not send the Israelites out so they could go on their way?
6:7
现在你们应当造一辆新车,将两只未曾负轭有乳的母牛套在车上,使牛犊回家去,离开母牛。
Now then, get a new cart ready, with two cows that have calved and have never been yoked. Hitch the cows to the cart, but take their calves away and pen them up.
6:8
把耶和华的约柜放在车上,将所献赔罪的金物装在匣子里,放在柜旁,将柜送去。
Take the ark of the Lord and put it on the cart, and in a chest beside it put the gold objects you are sending back to him as a guilt offering. Send it on its way,
6:9
你们要看看,车若直行以色列的境界到伯示麦去,这大灾就是耶和华降在我们身上的。若不然,便可以知道不是他的手击打我们,是我们偶然遇见的。
but keep watching it. If it goes up to its own territory, toward Beth Shemesh, then the Lord has brought this great disaster on us. But if it does not, then we will know that it was not his hand that struck us and that it happened to us by chance."
6:10
非利士人就这样行,将两只有乳的母牛套在车上,将牛犊关在家里,

Then the cows went straight up toward Beth Shemesh, keeping on the road and lowing all the way; they did not turn to the right or to the left. The rulers of the Philistines followed them as far as the border of Beth Shemesh.
6:13
伯示麦人正在平原收割麦子,举目看见约柜,就欢喜了。
Now the people of Beth Shemesh were harvesting their wheat in the valley, and when they looked up and saw the ark, they rejoiced at the sight.

车到了伯示麦人约书亚的田间,就站住了。在那里有一块大磐石,他们把车劈了,将两只母牛献给耶和华为燔祭。

6:18
金老鼠的数目是照非利士五个首领的城邑,就是坚固的城邑和乡村,以及大磐石。这磐石是放耶和华约柜的,到今日还在伯示麦人约书亚的田间。
And the number of the gold rats was according to the number of Philistine towns belonging to the five rulers-the fortified towns with their country villages. The large rock, on which they set the ark of the Lord , is a witness to this day in the field of Joshua of Beth Shemesh.

But God struck down some of the men of Beth Shemesh, putting seventy of them to death because they had looked into the ark of the Lord . The people mourned because of the heavy blow the Lord had dealt them,
6:20
伯示麦人说,谁能在耶和华这圣洁的神面前侍立呢?这约柜可以从我们这里送到谁那里去呢?
