列王記下 2 Kings


Chapter Verses
10:1
亚哈有七十个儿子在撒玛利亚。耶户写信送到撒玛利亚,通知耶斯列的首领,就是长老和教养亚哈众子的人,说,
Now there were in Samaria seventy sons of the house of Ahab. So Jehu wrote letters and sent them to Samaria: to the officials of Jezreel, to爐he elders and to the guardians of Ahab's children. He said,
10:2
你们那里既有你们主人的众子和车马,器械,坚固城,
As soon as this letter reaches you, since your master's sons are with you and you have chariots and horses, a fortified city and weapons,
10:3
接了这信,就可以在你们主人的众子中选择一个贤能合宜的,使他坐他父亲的位,你们也可以为你们主人的家争战。
choose the best and most worthy of your master's sons and set him on his father's throne. Then fight for your master's house."
10:4
他们却甚惧怕,彼此说,二王在他面前尚且站立不住,我们怎能站得住呢?
But they were terrified and said, "If two kings could not resist him, how can we?"
10:5
家宰,邑宰,和长老,并教养众子的人,打发人去见耶户,说,我们是你的仆人,凡你所吩咐我们的都必遵行,我们不立谁作王,你看怎样好就怎样行。
So the palace administrator, the city governor, the elders and the guardians sent this message to Jehu: "We are your servants and we will do anything you say. We will not appoint anyone as king; you do whatever you think best."
10:6
耶户又给他们写信说,你们若归顺我,听从我的话,明日这时候,要将你们主人众子的首级带到耶斯列来见我。那时王的儿子七十人都住在教养他们那城中的尊贵人家里。
Then Jehu wrote them a second letter, saying, "If you are on my side and will obey me, take the heads of your master's sons and come to me in Jezreel by this time tomorrow." Now the royal princes, seventy of them, were with the leading men of the city, who were rearing them.
10:7
信一到,他们就把王的七十个儿子杀了,将首级装在筐里,送到耶斯列耶户那里。
When the letter arrived, these men took the princes and slaughtered all seventy of them. They put their heads in baskets and sent them to Jehu in Jezreel.
10:8
有使者来告诉耶户说,他们将王众子的首级送来了。耶户说,将首级在城门口堆作两堆,搁到明日。
When the messenger arrived, he told Jehu, "They have brought the heads of the princes." Then Jehu ordered, "Put them in two piles at the entrance of the city gate until morning."
10:9
次日早晨,耶户出来,站着对众民说,你们都是公义的,我背叛我主人,将他杀了。这些人却是谁杀的呢?
The next morning Jehu went out. He stood before all the people and said, "You are innocent. It was I who conspired against my master and killed him, but who killed all these?
10:10
由此可知,耶和华指着亚哈家所说的话一句没有落空,因为耶和华借他仆人以利亚所说的话都成就了。
Know then, that not a word the Lord has spoken against the house of Ahab will fail. The Lord has done what he promised through his servant Elijah."
10:11
凡亚哈家在耶斯列所剩下的人和他的大臣,密友,祭司,耶户尽都杀了,没有留下一个。
So Jehu killed everyone in Jezreel who remained of the house of Ahab, as well as all his chief men, his close friends and his priests, leaving him no survivor.
10:12
耶户起身往撒玛利亚去。在路上,牧人剪羊毛之处,
Jehu then set out and went toward Samaria. At Beth Eked of the Shepherds,
10:13
遇见犹大王亚哈谢的弟兄,问他们说,你们是谁。回答说,我们是亚哈谢的弟兄,现在下去要问王和太后的众子安。
he met some relatives of Ahaziah king of Judah and asked, "Who are you?" They said, "We are relatives of Ahaziah, and we have come down to greet the families of the king and of the queen mother."
10:14
耶户吩咐说,活捉他们。跟从的人就活捉了他们,将他们杀在剪羊毛之处的坑边,共四十二人,没有留下一个。
Take them alive! he ordered. So they took them alive and slaughtered them by the well of Beth Eked-forty-two men. He left no survivor.
10:15
耶户从那里前行,恰遇利甲的儿子约拿达来迎接他,耶户问他安,对他说,你诚心待我像我诚心待你吗?约拿达回答说,是。耶户说,若是这样,你向我伸手,他就伸手。耶户拉他上车。
After he left there, he came upon Jehonadab son of Recab, who was on his way to meet him. Jehu greeted him and said, "Are you in accord with me, as I am with you?" "I am," Jehonadab answered. "If so," said Jehu, "give me your hand." So he did, and Jehu helped him up into the chariot.
10:16
耶户说,你和我同去,看我为耶和华怎样热心。于是请他坐在车上,
Jehu said, "Come with me and see my zeal for the Lord ." Then he had him ride along in his chariot.
10:17
到了撒玛利亚,就把撒玛利亚亚哈家剩下的人都杀了,直到灭尽,正如耶和华对以利亚所说的。
When Jehu came to Samaria, he killed all who were left there of Ahab's family; he destroyed them, according to the word of the Lord spoken to Elijah.
10:18
耶户招聚众民,对他们说,亚哈事奉巴力还冷淡,耶户却更热心。
Then Jehu brought all the people together and said to them, "Ahab served Baal a little; Jehu will serve him much.
10:19
现在我要给巴力献大祭。应当叫巴力的众先知和一切拜巴力的人,并巴力的众祭司,都到我这里来,不可缺少一个。凡不来的必不得活。耶户这样行,是用诡计要杀尽拜巴力的人。
Now summon all the prophets of Baal, all his ministers and all his priests. See that no one is missing, because I am going to hold a great sacrifice for Baal. Anyone who fails to come will no longer live." But Jehu was acting deceptively in order to destroy the ministers of Baal.
10:20
耶户说,要为巴力宣告严肃会。于是宣告了。
Jehu said, "Call an assembly in honor of Baal." So they proclaimed it.
10:21
耶户差人走遍以色列地。凡拜巴力的人都来齐了,没有一个不来的。他们进了巴力庙,巴力庙中从前边直到后边都满了人。
Then he sent word throughout Israel, and all the ministers of Baal came; not one stayed away. They crowded into the temple of Baal until it was full from one end to the other.
10:22
耶户吩咐掌管礼服的人说,拿出礼服来,给一切拜巴力的人穿。他就拿出礼服来给了他们。
And Jehu said to the keeper of the wardrobe, "Bring robes for all the ministers of Baal." So he brought out robes for them.
10:23
耶户和利甲的儿子约拿达进了巴力庙,对拜巴力的人说,你们察看察看,在你们这里不可有耶和华的仆人,只可容留拜巴力的人。
Then Jehu and Jehonadab son of Recab went into the temple of Baal. Jehu said to the ministers of Baal, "Look around and see that no servants of the Lord are here with you-only ministers of Baal."
10:24
耶户和约拿达进去,献平安祭和燔祭。耶户先安排八十人在庙外,吩咐说,我将这些人交在你们手中,若有一人脱逃,谁放的必叫他偿命。
So they went in to make sacrifices and burnt offerings. Now Jehu had posted eighty men outside with this warning: "If one of you lets any of the men I am placing in your hands escape, it will be your life for his life."
10:25
耶户献完了燔祭,就出来吩咐护卫兵和众军长说,你们进去杀他们,不容一人出来。护卫兵和军长就用刀杀他们,将尸首抛出去,便到巴力庙的城去了,
As soon as Jehu had finished making the burnt offering, he ordered the guards and officers: "Go in and kill them; let no one escape." So they cut them down with the sword. The guards and officers threw the bodies out and then entered the inner shrine of the temple of Baal.
10:26
将巴力庙中的柱像都拿出来烧了。
They brought the sacred stone out of the temple of Baal and burned it.
10:27
毁坏了巴力柱像,拆毁了巴力庙作为厕所,直到今日。
They demolished the sacred stone of Baal and tore down the temple of Baal, and people have used it for a latrine to this day.
10:28
这样,耶户在以色列中灭了巴力。
So Jehu destroyed Baal worship in Israel.
10:29
只是耶户不离开尼八的儿子耶罗波安使以色列人陷在罪里的那罪,就是拜伯特利和但的金牛犊。
However, he did not turn away from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he had caused Israel to commit-the worship of the golden calves at Bethel and Dan.
10:30
耶和华对耶户说,因你办好我眼中看为正的事,照我的心意待亚哈家,你的子孙必接续你坐以色列的国位,直到四代。
The Lord said to Jehu, "Because you have done well in accomplishing what is right in my eyes and have done to the house of Ahab all I had in mind to do, your descendants will sit on the throne of Israel to the fourth generation."
10:31
只是耶户不尽心遵守耶和华以色列神的律法,不离开耶罗波安使以色列人陷在罪里的那罪。
Yet Jehu was not careful to keep the law of the Lord , the God of Israel, with all his heart. He did not turn away from the sins of Jeroboam, which he had caused Israel to commit.
10:32
在那些日子,耶和华才割裂以色列国,使哈薛攻击以色列的境界,
In those days the Lord began to reduce the size of Israel. Hazael overpowered the Israelites throughout their territory
10:33
乃是约旦河东,基列全地,从靠近亚嫩谷边的亚罗珥起,就是基列和巴珊的迦得人,流便人,玛拿西人之地。
east of the Jordan in all the land of Gilead (the region of Gad, Reuben and Manasseh), from Aroer by the Arnon Gorge through Gilead to Bashan.
10:34
耶户其余的事,凡他所行的和他的勇力都写在以色列诸王记上。
As for the other events of Jehu's reign, all he did, and all his achievements, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Israel?
10:35
耶户与他列祖同睡,葬在撒玛利亚。他儿子约哈斯接续他作王。
Jehu rested with his fathers and was buried in Samaria. And Jehoahaz his son succeeded him as king.
10:36
耶户在撒玛利亚作以色列王二十八年。
The time that Jehu reigned over Israel in Samaria was twenty-eight years.
