撒母耳記上 1 Samuel


Chapter Verses < 前一章 目录 下一章 >
12:1
撒母耳对以色列众人说,你们向我所求的,我已应允了,为你们立了一个王。
Samuel said to all Israel, "I have listened to everything you said to me and have set a king over you.
12:2
现在有这王在你们前面行。我已年老发白,我的儿子都在你们这里。我从幼年直到今日都在你们前面行。
Now you have a king as your leader. As for me, I am old and gray, and my sons are here with you. I have been your leader from my youth until this day.
12:3
我在这里,你们要在耶和华和他的受膏者面前给我作见证。我夺过谁的牛,抢过谁的驴,欺负过谁,虐待过谁,从谁手里受过贿赂因而眼瞎呢?若有,我必偿还。
Here I stand. Testify against me in the presence of the Lord and his anointed. Whose ox have I taken? Whose donkey have I taken? Whom have I cheated? Whom have I oppressed? From whose hand have I accepted a bribe to make me shut my eyes? If I have done any of these, I will make it right."
12:4
众人说,你未曾欺负我们,虐待我们,也未曾从谁手里受过什么。
You have not cheated or oppressed us, they replied. "You have not taken anything from anyone's hand."
12:5
撒母耳对他们说,你们在我手里没有找着什么,有耶和华和他的受膏者今日为证。他们说,愿他为证。
Samuel said to them, "The Lord is witness against you, and also his anointed is witness this day, that you have not found anything in my hand." "He is witness," they said.
12:6
撒母耳对百姓说,从前立摩西,亚伦,又领你们列祖出埃及地的是耶和华。
Then Samuel said to the people, "It is the Lord who appointed Moses and Aaron and brought your forefathers up out of Egypt.
12:7
现在你们要站住,等我在耶和华面前对你们讲论耶和华向你们和你们列祖所行一切公义的事。
Now then, stand here, because I am going to confront you with evidence before the Lord as to all the righteous acts performed by the Lord for you and your fathers.
12:8
从前雅各到了埃及,后来你们列祖呼求耶和华,耶和华就差遣摩西,亚伦领你们列祖出埃及,使他们在这地方居住。
After Jacob entered Egypt, they cried to the Lord for help, and the Lord sent Moses and Aaron, who brought your forefathers out of Egypt and settled them in this place.
12:9
他们却忘记耶和华他们的神,他就把他们付与夏琐将军西西拉的手里,和非利士人并摩押王的手里。于是这些人常来攻击他们。
But they forgot the Lord their God; so he sold them into the hand of Sisera, the commander of the army of Hazor, and into the hands of the Philistines and the king of Moab, who fought against them.
12:10
他们就呼求耶和华说,我们离弃耶和华,事奉巴力和亚斯他录,是有罪了。现在求你救我们脱离仇敌的手,我们必事奉你。
They cried out to the Lord and said, 'We have sinned; we have forsaken the Lord and served the Baals and the Ashtoreths. But now deliver us from the hands of our enemies, and we will serve you.'
12:11
耶和华就差遣耶路巴力,比但,耶弗他,撒母耳救你们脱离四围仇敌的手,你们才安然居住。
Then the Lord sent Jerub-Baal, Barak, Jephthah and Samuel, and he delivered you from the hands of your enemies on every side, so that you lived securely.
12:12
你们见亚扪人的王拿辖来攻击你们,就对我说,我们定要一个王治理我们。其实耶和华你们的神是你们的王。
But when you saw that Nahash king of the Ammonites was moving against you, you said to me, 'No, we want a king to rule over us'-even though the Lord your God was your king.
12:13
现在,你们所求所选的王在这里。看哪,耶和华已经为你们立王了。
Now here is the king you have chosen, the one you asked for; see, the Lord has set a king over you.
12:14
你们若敬畏耶和华,事奉他,听从他的话,不违背他的命令,你们和治理你们的王也都顺从耶和华你们的神就好了。
If you fear the Lord and serve and obey him and do not rebel against his commands, and if both you and the king who reigns over you follow the Lord your God-good!
12:15
倘若不听从耶和华的话,违背他的命令,耶和华的手必攻击你们,像从前攻击你们列祖一样。
But if you do not obey the Lord , and if you rebel against his commands, his hand will be against you, as it was against your fathers.
12:16
现在你们要站住,看耶和华在你们眼前要行一件大事。
Now then, stand still and see this great thing the Lord is about to do before your eyes!
12:17
这不是割麦子的时候吗?我求告耶和华,他必打雷降雨,使你们又知道又看出,你们求立王的事是在耶和华面前犯大罪了。
Is it not wheat harvest now? I will call upon the Lord to send thunder and rain. And you will realize what an evil thing you did in the eyes of the Lord when you asked for a king."
12:18
于是撒母耳求告耶和华,耶和华就在这日打雷降雨,众民便甚惧怕耶和华和撒母耳。
Then Samuel called upon the Lord , and that same day the Lord sent thunder and rain. So all the people stood in awe of the Lord and of Samuel.
12:19
众民对撒母耳说,求你为仆人们祷告耶和华你的神,免得我们死亡,因为我们求立王的事正是罪上加罪了。
The people all said to Samuel, "Pray to the Lord your God for your servants so that we will not die, for we have added to all our other sins the evil of asking for a king."
12:20
撒母耳对百姓说,不要惧怕。你们虽然行了这恶,却不要偏离耶和华,只要尽心事奉他。
Do not be afraid, Samuel replied. "You have done all this evil; yet do not turn away from the Lord , but serve the Lord with all your heart.
12:21
若偏离耶和华去顺从那不能救人的虚神是无益的。
Do not turn away after useless idols. They can do you no good, nor can they rescue you, because they are useless.
12:22
耶和华既喜悦选你们作他的子民,就必因他的大名不撇弃你们。
For the sake of his great name the Lord will not reject his people, because the Lord was pleased to make you his own.
12:23
至于我,断不停止为你们祷告,以致得罪耶和华。我必以善道正路指教你们。
As for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by failing to pray for you. And I will teach you the way that is good and right.
12:24
只要你们敬畏耶和华,诚诚实实地尽心事奉他,想念他向你们所行的事何等大。
But be sure to fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you.
12:25
你们若仍然作恶,你们和你们的王必一同灭亡。
Yet if you persist in doing evil, both you and your king will be swept away."
