34:21
你们去为我,为以色列和犹大剩下的人,以这书上的话求问耶和华。因我们列祖没有遵守耶和华的言语,没有照这书上所记的去行,耶和华的烈怒就倒在我们身上。
Go and inquire of the Lord for me and for the remnant in Israel and Judah about what is written in this book that has been found. Great is the Lord 's anger that is poured out on us because our fathers have not kept the word of the Lord ; they have not acted in accordance with all that is written in this book.
34:22
于是,希勒家和王所派的众人都去见女先知户勒大。户勒大是掌管礼服沙龙的妻,沙龙是哈斯拉的孙子,特瓦的儿子。户勒大住在耶路撒冷第二区。他们请问于她。
Hilkiah and those the king had sent with him went to speak to the prophetess Huldah, who was the wife of Shallum son of Tokhath, the son of Hasrah, keeper of the wardrobe. She lived in Jerusalem, in the Second District.

耶和华如此说,我必照着在犹大王面前所读那书上的一切咒诅,降祸与这地和其上的居民。
'This is what the Lord says: I am going to bring disaster on this place and its people-all the curses written in the book that has been read in the presence of the king of Judah.
34:25
因为他们离弃我,向别神烧香,用他们手所作的惹我发怒,所以我的忿怒如火倒在这地上,总不息灭。
Because they have forsaken me and burned incense to other gods and provoked me to anger by all that their hands have made, my anger will be poured out on this place and will not be quenched.'
34:26
然而差遣你们来求问耶和华的犹大王,你们要这样回覆他说,耶和华以色列的神如此说,至于你所听见的话,
Tell the king of Judah, who sent you to inquire of the Lord , 'This is what the Lord , the God of Israel, says concerning the words you heard:
34:27
就是听见我指着这地和其上居民所说的话,你便心里敬服,在我面前自卑,撕裂衣服,向我哭泣,因此我应允了你。这是我耶和华说的。
Because your heart was responsive and you humbled yourself before God when you heard what he spoke against this place and its people, and because you humbled yourself before me and tore your robes and wept in my presence, I have heard you, declares the Lord .
34:28
我必使你平平安安地归到坟墓,到你列祖那里,我要降与这地和其上居民的一切灾祸,你也不至亲眼看见。他们就回覆王去了。
Now I will gather you to your fathers, and you will be buried in peace. Your eyes will not see all the disaster I am going to bring on this place and on those who live here.' " So they took her answer back to the king.

34:31
王站在他的地位上,在耶和华面前立约,要尽心尽性地顺从耶和华,遵守他的诫命,法度,律例,成就这书上所记的约言。
The king stood by his pillar and renewed the covenant in the presence of the Lord -to follow the Lord and keep his commands, regulations and decrees with all his heart and all his soul, and to obey the words of the covenant written in this book.
34:32
又使住耶路撒冷和便雅悯的人都服从这约。于是耶路撒冷的居民都遵行他们列祖之神的约。
Then he had everyone in Jerusalem and Benjamin pledge themselves to it; the people of Jerusalem did this in accordance with the covenant of God, the God of their fathers.
34:33
约西亚从以色列各处将一切可憎之物尽都除掉,使以色列境内的人都事奉耶和华他们的神。约西亚在世的日子,就跟从耶和华他们列祖的神,总不离开。
