尼希米記 Nehemiah


Chapter Verses < 前一章 目录 下一章 >
6:1
参巴拉,多比雅,亚拉伯人基善,和我们其余的仇敌,听见我已经修完了城墙,其中没有破裂之处(那时我还没有安门扇)。
When word came to Sanballat, Tobiah, Geshem the Arab and the rest of our enemies that I had rebuilt the wall and not a gap was left in it-though up to that time I had not set the doors in the gates-
6:2
参巴拉和基善就打发人来见我,说,请你来,我们在阿挪平原的一个村庄相会。他们却想害我。
Sanballat and Geshem sent me this message: "Come, let us meet together in one of the villages on the plain of Ono." But they were scheming to harm me;
6:3
于是我差遣人去见他们,说,我现在办理大工,不能下去。焉能停工下去见你们呢?
so I sent messengers to them with this reply: "I am carrying on a great project and cannot go down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and go down to you?"
6:4
他们这样四次打发人来见我,我都如此回答他们。
Four times they sent me the same message, and each time I gave them the same answer.
6:5
参巴拉第五次打发仆人来见我,手里拿着未封的信,
Then, the fifth time, Sanballat sent his aide to me with the same message, and in his hand was an unsealed letter
6:6
信上写着说,外邦人中有风声,迦施慕(就是基善见二章十九节)也说,你和犹大人谋反,修造城墙,你要作他们的王。
in which was written: "It is reported among the nations-and Geshem says it is true-that you and the Jews are plotting to revolt, and therefore you are building the wall. Moreover, according to these reports you are about to become their king
6:7
你又派先知在耶路撒冷指着你宣讲,说在犹大有王。现在这话必传与王知。所以请你来,与我们彼此商议。
and have even appointed prophets to make this proclamation about you in Jerusalem: 'There is a king in Judah!' Now this report will get back to the king; so come, let us confer together."
6:8
我就差遣人去见他,说,你所说的这事,一概没有,是你心里捏造的。
I sent him this reply: "Nothing like what you are saying is happening; you are just making it up out of your head."
6:9
他们都要使我们惧怕,意思说,他们的手必软弱,以致工作不能成就。神阿,求你坚固我的手。
They were all trying to frighten us, thinking, "Their hands will get too weak for the work, and it will not be completed." But I prayed, "Now strengthen my hands."
6:10
我到了米希大别的孙子,第来雅的儿子示玛雅家里。那时,他闭门不出。他说,我们不如在神的殿里会面,将殿门关锁。因为他们要来杀你,就是夜里来杀你。
One day I went to the house of Shemaiah son of Delaiah, the son of Mehetabel, who was shut in at his home. He said, "Let us meet in the house of God, inside the temple, and let us close the temple doors, because men are coming to kill you-by night they are coming to kill you."
6:11
我说,像我这样的人岂要逃跑呢?像我这样的人岂能进入殿里保全生命呢?我不进去。
But I said, "Should a man like me run away? Or should one like me go into the temple to save his life? I will not go!"
6:12
我看明神没有差遣他,是他自己说这话攻击我,是多比雅和参巴拉贿买了他。
I realized that God had not sent him, but that he had prophesied against me because Tobiah and Sanballat had hired him.
6:13
贿买他的缘故,是要叫我惧怕,依从他犯罪,他们好传扬恶言毁谤我。
He had been hired to intimidate me so that I would commit a sin by doing this, and then they would give me a bad name to discredit me.
6:14
我的神阿,多比雅,参巴拉,女先知挪亚底,和其余的先知要叫我惧怕,求你记念他们所行的这些事。
Remember Tobiah and Sanballat, O my God, because of what they have done; remember also the prophetess Noadiah and the rest of the prophets who have been trying to intimidate me.
6:15
以禄月二十五日,城墙修完了,共修了五十二天。
So the wall was completed on the twenty-fifth of Elul, in fifty-two days.
6:16
我们一切仇敌,四围的外邦人听见了便惧怕,愁眉不展。因为见这工作完成是出乎我们的神。
When all our enemies heard about this, all the surrounding nations were afraid and lost their self-confidence, because they realized that this work had been done with the help of our God.
6:17
在那些日子,犹大的贵胄屡次寄信与多比雅,多比雅也来信与他们。
Also, in those days the nobles of Judah were sending many letters to Tobiah, and replies from Tobiah kept coming to them.
6:18
在犹大有许多人与多比雅结盟。因他是亚拉的儿子,示迦尼的女婿,并且他的儿子,约哈难娶了比利迦儿子,米书兰的女儿为妻。
For many in Judah were under oath to him, since he was son-in-law to Shecaniah son of Arah, and his son Jehohanan had married the daughter of Meshullam son of Berekiah.
6:19
他们常在我面前说多比雅的善行,也将我的话传与他。多比雅又常寄信来,要叫我惧怕。
Moreover, they kept reporting to me his good deeds and then telling him what I said. And Tobiah sent letters to intimidate me.
