Chapter Verses < 前一章 目录 下一章 >
19:1
此后,亚扪人的王拿辖死了,他儿子接续他作王。
In the course of time, Nahash king of the Ammonites died, and his son succeeded him as king.
19:2
大卫说,我要照哈嫩的父亲拿辖厚待我的恩典厚待哈嫩。于是大卫差遣使者为他丧父安慰他。大卫的臣仆到了亚扪人的境内见哈嫩,要安慰他,
David thought, "I will show kindness to Hanun son of Nahash, because his father showed kindness to me." So David sent a delegation to express his sympathy to Hanun concerning his father. When David's men came to Hanun in the land of the Ammonites to express sympathy to him,
19:3
但亚扪人的首领对哈嫩说,大卫差人来安慰你,你想他是尊敬你父亲吗?他的臣仆来见你不是为详察窥探,倾覆这地吗?
the Ammonite nobles said to Hanun, "Do you think David is honoring your father by sending men to you to express sympathy? Haven't his men come to you to explore and spy out the country and overthrow it?"
19:4
哈嫩便将大卫臣仆的胡须剃去一半,又割断他们下半截的衣服,使他们露出下体,打发他们回去。
So Hanun seized David's men, shaved them, cut off their garments in the middle at the buttocks, and sent them away.
19:5
有人将臣仆所遇的事告诉大卫,他就差人去迎接他们,因为他们甚觉羞耻。告诉他们说,可以住在耶利哥,等到胡须长起再回来。
When someone came and told David about the men, he sent messengers to meet them, for they were greatly humiliated. The king said, "Stay at Jericho till your beards have grown, and then come back."
19:6
亚扪人知道大卫憎恶他们,哈嫩和亚扪人就打发人拿一千他连得银子,从米所波大米,亚兰,玛迦,琐巴雇战车和马兵,
When the Ammonites realized that they had become a stench in David's nostrils, Hanun and the Ammonites sent a thousand talents of silver to hire chariots and charioteers from Aram Naharaim, Aram Maacah and Zobah.
19:7
于是雇了三万二千辆战车和玛迦王并他的军兵。他们来安营在米底巴前。亚扪人也从他们的城里出来,聚集交战。
They hired thirty-two thousand chariots and charioteers, as well as the king of Maacah with his troops, who came and camped near Medeba, while the Ammonites were mustered from their towns and moved out for battle.
19:8
大卫听见了,就差派约押统带勇猛的全军出去。
On hearing this, David sent Joab out with the entire army of fighting men.
19:9
亚扪人出来在城门前摆阵,所来的诸王另在郊野摆阵。
The Ammonites came out and drew up in battle formation at the entrance to their city, while the kings who had come were by themselves in the open country.
19:10
约押看见敌人在他前后摆阵,就从以色列军中挑选精兵,使他们对着亚兰人摆阵。
Joab saw that there were battle lines in front of him and behind him; so he selected some of the best troops in Israel and deployed them against the Arameans.
19:11
其余的兵交与他兄弟亚比筛,对着亚扪人摆阵。
He put the rest of the men under the command of Abishai his brother, and they were deployed against the Ammonites.
19:12
约押对亚比筛说,亚兰人若强过我,你就来帮助我。亚扪人若强过你,我就去帮助你。
Joab said, "If the Arameans are too strong for me, then you are to rescue me; but if the Ammonites are too strong for you, then I will rescue you.
19:13
我们都当刚强,为本国的民和神的城邑作大丈夫,愿耶和华凭他的意旨而行。
Be strong and let us fight bravely for our people and the cities of our God. The Lord will do what is good in his sight."
19:14
于是约押和跟随他的人前进攻打亚兰人。亚兰人在约押面前逃跑。
Then Joab and the troops with him advanced to fight the Arameans, and they fled before him.
19:15
亚扪人见亚兰人逃跑,他们也在约押的兄弟亚比筛面前逃跑进城。约押就回耶路撒冷去了。
When the Ammonites saw that the Arameans were fleeing, they too fled before his brother Abishai and went inside the city. So Joab went back to Jerusalem.
19:16
亚兰人见自己被以色列人打败,就打发使者将大河那边的亚兰人调来,哈大利谢的将军朔法率领他们。
After the Arameans saw that they had been routed by Israel, they sent messengers and had Arameans brought from beyond the River, with Shophach the commander of Hadadezer's army leading them.
19:17
有人告诉大卫,他就聚集以色列众人过约旦河,来到亚兰人那里,迎着他们摆阵。大卫既摆阵攻击亚兰人,亚兰人就与他打仗。
When David was told of this, he gathered all Israel and crossed the Jordan; he advanced against them and formed his battle lines opposite them. David formed his lines to meet the Arameans in battle, and they fought against him.
19:18
亚兰人在以色列人面前逃跑。大卫杀了亚兰七千辆战车的人,四万步兵,又杀了亚兰的将军朔法。
But they fled before Israel, and David killed seven thousand of their charioteers and forty thousand of their foot soldiers. He also killed Shophach the commander of their army.
19:19
属哈大利谢的诸王见自己被以色列人打败,就与大卫和好,归服他。于是亚兰人不敢再帮助亚扪人了。
When the vassals of Hadadezer saw that they had been defeated by Israel, they made peace with David and became subject to him. So the Arameans were not willing to help the Ammonites anymore.
