Chapter Verses
2:1
大卫的死期临近了,就嘱咐他儿子所罗门说,
When the time drew near for David to die, he gave a charge to Solomon his son.
2:2
我现在要走世人必走的路。所以,你当刚强,作大丈夫,
I am about to go the way of all the earth, he said. "So be strong, show yourself a man,
2:3
遵守耶和华你神所吩咐的,照着摩西律法上所写的行主的道,谨守他的律例,诫命,典章,法度。这样,你无论作什么事,不拘往何处去,尽都亨通。
and observe what the Lord your God requires: Walk in his ways, and keep his decrees and commands, his laws and requirements, as written in the Law of Moses, so that you may prosper in all you do and wherever you go,
2:4
耶和华必成就向我所应许的话说,你的子孙若谨慎自己的行为,尽心尽意诚诚实实地行在我面前,就不断人坐以色列的国位。
and that the Lord may keep his promise to me: 'If your descendants watch how they live, and if they walk faithfully before me with all their heart and soul, you will never fail to have a man on the throne of Israel.'
2:5
你知道洗鲁雅的儿子约押向我所行的,就是杀了以色列的两个元帅,尼珥的儿子押尼珥和益帖的儿子亚玛撒。他在太平之时流这二人的血,如在争战之时一样,将这血染了腰间束的带和脚上穿的鞋。
Now you yourself know what Joab son of Zeruiah did to me-what he did to the two commanders of Israel's armies, Abner son of Ner and Amasa son of Jether. He killed them, shedding their blood in peacetime as if in battle, and with that blood stained the belt around his waist and the sandals on his feet.
2:6
所以你要照你的智慧行,不容他白头安然下阴间。
Deal with him according to your wisdom, but do not let his gray head go down to the grave in peace.
2:7
你当恩待基列人巴西莱的众子,使他们常与你同席吃饭。因为我躲避你哥哥押沙龙的时候,他们拿食物来迎接我。
But show kindness to the sons of Barzillai of Gilead and let them be among those who eat at your table. They stood by me when I fled from your brother Absalom.
2:8
在你这里有巴户琳的便雅悯人,基拉的儿子示每。我往玛哈念去的那日,他用狠毒的言语咒骂我,后来却下约旦河迎接我,我就指着耶和华向他起誓说,我必不用刀杀你。
And remember, you have with you Shimei son of Gera, the Benjamite from Bahurim, who called down bitter curses on me the day I went to Mahanaim. When he came down to meet me at the Jordan, I swore to him by the Lord : 'I will not put you to death by the sword.'
2:9
现在你不要以他为无罪。你是聪明人,必知道怎样待他,使他白头见杀,流血下到阴间。
But now, do not consider him innocent. You are a man of wisdom; you will know what to do to him. Bring his gray head down to the grave in blood."
2:10
大卫与他列祖同睡,葬在大卫城。
Then David rested with his fathers and was buried in the City of David.
2:11
大卫作以色列王四十年,在希伯仑作王七年,在耶路撒冷作王三十三年。
He had reigned forty years over Israel-seven years in Hebron and thirty-three in Jerusalem.
2:12
所罗门坐他父亲大卫的位,他的国甚是坚固。
So Solomon sat on the throne of his father David, and his rule was firmly established.
2:13
哈及的儿子亚多尼雅去见所罗门的母亲拔示巴,拔示巴问他说,你来是为平安吗?回答说,是为平安。
Now Adonijah, the son of Haggith, went to Bathsheba, Solomon's mother.燘athsheba asked him, "Do you come peacefully?" He answered, "Yes, peacefully."
2:14
又说,我有话对你说。拔示巴说,你说吧。
Then he added, "I have something to say to you." "You may say it," she replied.
2:15
亚多尼雅说,你知道国原是归我的,以色列众人也都仰望我作王,不料,国反归了我兄弟,因他得国是出乎耶和华。
As you know, he said, "the kingdom was mine. All Israel looked to me as their king. But things changed, and the kingdom has gone to my brother; for it has come to him from the Lord .
2:16
现在我有一件事求你,望你不要推辞。拔示巴说,你说吧。
Now I have one request to make of you. Do not refuse me." "You may make it," she said.
2:17
他说,求你请所罗门王将书念的女子亚比煞赐我为妻,因他必不推辞你。
So he continued, "Please ask King Solomon-he will not refuse you-to give me Abishag the Shunammite as my wife."
2:18
拔示巴说,好,我必为你对王提说。
Very well, Bathsheba replied, "I will speak to the king for you."
2:19
于是,拔示巴去见所罗门王,要为亚多尼雅提说。王起来迎接,向她下拜,就坐在位上,吩咐人为王母设一座位,她便坐在王的右边。
When Bathsheba went to King Solomon to speak to him for Adonijah, the king stood up to meet her, bowed down to her and sat down on his throne. He had a throne brought for the king's mother, and she sat down at his right hand.
2:20
拔示巴说,我有一件小事求你,望你不要推辞。王说,请母亲说,我必不推辞。
I have one small request to make of you, she said. "Do not refuse me." The king replied, "Make it, my mother; I will not refuse you."
2:21
拔示巴说,求你将书念的女子亚比煞赐给你哥哥亚多尼雅为妻。
So she said, "Let Abishag the Shunammite be given in marriage to your brother Adonijah."
2:22
所罗门王对他母亲说,为何单替他求书念的女子亚比煞呢?也可以为他求国吧。他是我的哥哥,他有祭司亚比亚他和洗鲁雅的儿子约押为辅佐。
King Solomon answered his mother, "Why do you request Abishag the Shunammite for Adonijah? You might as well request the kingdom for him-after all, he is my older brother-yes, for him and for Abiathar the priest and Joab son of Zeruiah!"
2:23
所罗门王就指着耶和华起誓说,亚多尼雅这话是自己送命,不然,愿神重重地降罚与我。
Then King Solomon swore by the Lord : "May God deal with me, be it ever so severely, if Adonijah does not pay with his life for this request!
2:24
耶和华坚立我,使我坐在父亲大卫的位上,照着所应许的话为我建立家室。现在我指着永生的耶和华起誓,亚多尼雅今日必被治死。
And now, as surely as the Lord lives-he who has established me securely on the throne of my father David and has founded a dynasty for me as he promised-Adonijah shall be put to death today!"
2:25
于是所罗门王差遣耶何耶大的儿子比拿雅,将亚多尼雅杀死。
So King Solomon gave orders to Benaiah son of Jehoiada, and he struck down Adonijah and he died.
2:26
王对祭司亚比亚他说,你回亚拿突归自己的田地去吧。你本是该死的,但因你在我父亲大卫面前抬过主耶和华的约柜,又与我父亲同受一切苦难,所以我今日不将你杀死。
To Abiathar the priest the king said, "Go back to your fields in Anathoth. You deserve to die, but I will not put you to death now, because you carried the ark of the Sovereign Lord before my father David and shared all my father's hardships."
2:27
所罗门就革除亚比亚他,不许他作耶和华的祭司。这样,便应验耶和华在示罗论以利家所说的话。
So Solomon removed Abiathar from the priesthood of the Lord , fulfilling the word the Lord had spoken at Shiloh about the house of Eli.
2:28
约押虽然没有归从押沙龙,却归从了亚多尼雅。他听见这风声,就逃到耶和华的帐幕,抓住祭坛的角。
When the news reached Joab, who had conspired with Adonijah though not with Absalom, he fled to the tent of the Lord and took hold of the horns of the altar.
2:29
有人告诉所罗门王说,约押逃到耶和华的帐幕,现今在祭坛的旁边。所罗门就差遣耶何耶大的儿子比拿雅,说,你去将他杀死。
King Solomon was told that Joab had fled to the tent of the Lord and was beside the altar. Then Solomon ordered Benaiah son of Jehoiada, "Go, strike him down!"
2:30
比拿雅来到耶和华的帐幕,对约押说,王吩咐说,你出来吧。他说,我不出去,我要死在这里。比拿雅就去回覆王,说约押如此如此回答我。
So Benaiah entered the tent of the Lord and said to Joab, "The king says, 'Come out!' " But he answered, "No, I will die here." Benaiah reported to the king, "This is how Joab answered me."
2:31
王说,你可以照着他的话行,杀死他,将他葬埋,好叫约押流无辜人血的罪不归我和我的父家了。
Then the king commanded Benaiah, "Do as he says. Strike him down and bury him, and so clear me and my father's house of the guilt of the innocent blood that Joab shed.
2:32
耶和华必使约押流人血的罪归到他自己的头上。因为他用刀杀了两个比他又义又好的人,就是以色列元帅尼珥的儿子押尼珥和犹大元帅益帖的儿子亚玛撒,我父亲大卫却不知道。
The Lord will repay him for the blood he shed, because without the knowledge of my father David he attacked two men and killed them with the sword. Both of them-Abner son of Ner, commander of Israel's army, and Amasa son of Jether, commander of Judah's army-were better men and more upright than he.
2:33
故此,流这二人血的罪必归到约押和他后裔的头上,直到永远。惟有大卫和他的后裔,并他的家与国,必从耶和华那里得平安,直到永远。
May the guilt of their blood rest on the head of Joab and his descendants forever. But on David and his descendants, his house and his throne, may there be the Lord 's peace forever."
2:34
于是耶何耶大的儿子比拿雅上去,将约押杀死,葬在旷野约押自己的坟墓里(坟墓原文作房屋)。
So Benaiah son of Jehoiada went up and struck down Joab and killed him, and he was buried on his own land in the desert.
2:35
王就立耶何耶大的儿子比拿雅作元帅,代替约押,又使祭司撒督代替亚比亚他。
The king put Benaiah son of Jehoiada over the army in Joab's position and replaced Abiathar with Zadok the priest.
2:36
王差遣人将示每召来,对他说,你要在耶路撒冷建造房屋居住,不可出来往别处去。
Then the king sent for Shimei and said to him, "Build yourself a house in Jerusalem and live there, but do not go anywhere else.
2:37
你当确实地知道,你何日出来过汲沦溪,何日必死。你的罪(原文作血)必归到自己的头上。
The day you leave and cross the Kidron Valley, you can be sure you will die; your blood will be on your own head."
2:38
示每对王说,这话甚好。我主我王怎样说,仆人必怎样行。于是示每多日住在耶路撒冷。
Shimei answered the king, "What you say is good. Your servant will do as my lord the king has said." And Shimei stayed in Jerusalem for a long time.
2:39
过了三年,示每的两个仆人逃到迦特王玛迦的儿子亚吉那里去。有人告诉示每说,你的仆人在迦特。
But three years later, two of Shimei's slaves ran off to Achish son of Maacah, king of Gath, and Shimei was told, "Your slaves are in Gath."
2:40
示每起来,备上驴,往迦特到亚吉那里去找他的仆人,就从迦特带他仆人回来。
At this, he saddled his donkey and went to Achish at Gath in search of his slaves. So Shimei went away and brought the slaves back from Gath.
2:41
有人告诉所罗门说,示每出耶路撒冷往迦特去,回来了。
When Solomon was told that Shimei had gone from Jerusalem to Gath and had returned,
2:42
王就差遣人将示每召了来,对他说,我岂不是叫你指着耶和华起誓,并且警戒你说你当确实地知道,你哪日出来往别处去,那日必死吗?你也对我说,这话甚好,我必听从。
the king summoned Shimei and said to him, "Did I not make you swear by the Lord and warn you, 'On the day you leave to go anywhere else, you can be sure you will die'? At that time you said to me, 'What you say is good. I will obey.'
2:43
现在你为何不遵守你指着耶和华起的誓和我所吩咐你的命令呢?
Why then did you not keep your oath to the Lord and obey the command I gave you?"
2:44
王又对示每说,你向我父亲大卫所行的一切恶事,你自己心里也知道,所以耶和华必使你的罪恶归到自己的头上。
The king also said to Shimei, "You know in your heart all the wrong you did to my father David. Now the Lord will repay you for your wrongdoing.
2:45
惟有所罗门王必得福,并且大卫的国位必在耶和华面前坚定,直到永远。
But King Solomon will be blessed, and David's throne will remain secure before the Lord forever."
2:46
于是王吩咐耶何耶大的儿子比拿雅,他就去杀死示每。这样,便坚定了所罗门的国位。
Then the king gave the order to Benaiah son of Jehoiada, and he went out and struck Shimei down and killed him. The kingdom was now firmly established in Solomon's hands.
