撒母耳記上 1 Samuel


Chapter Verses < 前一章 目录 下一章 >
16:1
耶和华对撒母耳说,我既厌弃扫罗作以色列的王,你为他悲伤要到几时呢?你将膏油盛满了角,我差遣你往伯利恒人耶西那里去。因为我在他众子之内,预定一个作王的。
The Lord said to Samuel, "How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and be on your way; I am sending you to Jesse of Bethlehem. I have chosen one of his sons to be king."
16:2
撒母耳说,我怎能去呢?扫罗若听见,必要杀我。耶和华说,你可以带一只牛犊去,就说,我来是要向耶和华献祭。
But Samuel said, "How can I go? Saul will hear about it and kill me." The Lord said, "Take a heifer with you and say, 'I have come to sacrifice to the Lord .'
16:3
你要请耶西来吃祭肉,我就指示你所当行的事。我所指给你的人,你要膏他。
Invite Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will show you what to do. You are to anoint for me the one I indicate."
16:4
撒母耳就照耶和华的话去行。到了伯利恒,那城里的长老都战战兢兢地出来迎接他,问他说,你是为平安来的吗?
Samuel did what the Lord said. When he arrived at Bethlehem, the elders of the town trembled when they met him. They asked, "Do you come in peace?"
16:5
他说,为平安来的,我是给耶和华献祭。你们当自洁,来与我同吃祭肉。撒母耳就使耶西和他众子自洁,请他们来吃祭肉。
Samuel replied, "Yes, in peace; I have come to sacrifice to the Lord . Consecrate yourselves and come to the sacrifice with me." Then he consecrated Jesse and his sons and invited them to the sacrifice.
16:6
他们来的时候,撒母耳看见以利押,就心里说,耶和华的受膏者必定在他面前。
When they arrived, Samuel saw Eliab and thought, "Surely the Lord 's anointed stands here before the Lord ."
16:7
耶和华却对撒母耳说,不要看他的外貌和他身材高大,我不拣选他。因为,耶和华不像人看人,人是看外貌。耶和华是看内心。
But the Lord said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart."
16:8
耶西叫亚比拿达从撒母耳面前经过,撒母耳说,耶和华也不拣选他。
Then Jesse called Abinadab and had him pass in front of Samuel. But Samuel said, "The Lord has not chosen this one either."
16:9
耶西又叫沙玛从撒母耳面前经过,撒母耳说,耶和华也不拣选他。
Jesse then had Shammah pass by, but Samuel said, "Nor has the Lord chosen this one."
16:10
耶西叫他七个儿子都从撒母耳面前经过,撒母耳说,这都不是耶和华所拣选的。
Jesse had seven of his sons pass before Samuel, but Samuel said to him, "The Lord has not chosen these."
16:11
撒母耳对耶西说,你的儿子都在这里吗?他回答说,还有个小的,现在放羊。撒母耳对耶西说,你打发人去叫他来。他若不来,我们必不坐席。
So he asked Jesse, "Are these all the sons you have?" "There is still the youngest," Jesse answered, "but he is tending the sheep." Samuel said, "Send for him; we will not sit down until he arrives."
16:12
耶西就打发人去叫了他来。他面色光红,双目清秀,容貌俊美。耶和华说,这就是他,你起来膏他。
So he sent and had him brought in. He was ruddy, with a fine appearance and handsome features. Then the Lord said, "Rise and anoint him; he is the one."
16:13
撒母耳就用角里的膏油,在他诸兄中膏了他。从这日起,耶和华的灵就大大感动大卫。撒母耳起身回拉玛去了。
So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the Lord came upon David in power. Samuel then went to Ramah.

其中有一个少年人说,我曾见伯利恒人耶西的一个儿子善于弹琴,是大有勇敢的战士,说话合宜,容貌俊美,耶和华也与他同在。
One of the servants answered, "I have seen a son of Jesse of Bethlehem who knows how to play the harp. He is a brave man and a warrior. He speaks well and is a fine-looking man. And the Lord is with him."
16:19
于是扫罗差遣使者去见耶西,说,请你打发你放羊的儿子大卫到我这里来。

扫罗差遣人去见耶西,说,求你容大卫侍立在我面前,因为他在我眼前蒙了恩。
Then Saul sent word to Jesse, saying, "Allow David to remain in my service, for I am pleased with him."

从神那里来的恶魔临到扫罗身上的时候,大卫就拿琴,用手而弹,扫罗便舒畅爽快,恶魔离了他。
Whenever the spirit from God came upon Saul, David would take his harp and play. Then relief would come to Saul; he would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him.
