所以我心里说,恐怕我没有祷告耶和华。非利士人下到吉甲攻击我,我就勉强献上燔祭。
I thought, 'Now the Philistines will come down against me at Gilgal, and I have not sought the Lord 's favor.' So I felt compelled to offer the burnt offering."
13:13
撒母耳对扫罗说,你作了糊涂事了,没有遵守耶和华你神所吩咐你的命令。若遵守,耶和华必在以色列中坚立你的王位,直到永远。
You acted foolishly, Samuel said. "You have not kept the command the Lord your God gave you; if you had, he would have established your kingdom over Israel for all time.
13:14
现在你的王位必不长久。耶和华已经寻着一个合他心意的人,立他作百姓的君,因为你没有遵守耶和华所吩咐你的。
But now your kingdom will not endure; the Lord has sought out a man after his own heart and appointed him leader of his people, because you have not kept the Lord 's command."
