旧约 撒母耳记下 第11章

第1段

过了一年,到列王出战的时候,大卫又差派约押,率领臣仆和以色列众人出战。他们就打败亚扪人,围攻拉巴。大卫仍住在耶路撒冷。
And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem.

第2段

一日,太阳平西,大卫从床上起来,在王宫的平顶上游行,看见一个妇人沭浴,容貌甚美,
And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king's house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon.

第3段

大卫就差人打听那妇人是谁。有人说,她是以连的女儿,赫人乌利亚的妻拔示巴。
And David sent and enquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?

第4段

大卫差人去,将妇人接来。那时她的月经才得洁净。她来了,大卫与她同房,她就回家去了。
And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and he lay with her; for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house.

第5段

于是她怀了孕,打发人去告诉大卫说,我怀了孕。
And the woman conceived, and sent and told David, and said, I am with child.

第6段

大卫差人到约押那里,说,你打发赫人乌利亚到我这里来。约押就打发乌利亚去见大卫。
And David sent to Joab, saying, Send me Uriah the Hittite. And Joab sent Uriah to David.

第7段

乌利亚来了,大卫问约押好,也问兵好,又问争战的事怎样。
And when Uriah was come unto him, David demanded of him how Joab did, and how the people did, and how the war prospered.

第8段

大卫对乌利亚说,你回家去,洗洗脚吧。乌利亚出了王宫,随后王送他一分食物。
And David said to Uriah, Go down to thy house, and wash thy feet. And Uriah departed out of the king's house, and there followed him a mess of meat from the king.

第9段

乌利亚却和他主人的仆人一同睡在宫门外,没有回家去。
But Uriah slept at the door of the king's house with all the servants of his lord, and went not down to his house.

第10段

有人告诉大卫说,乌利亚没有回家去。大卫就问乌利亚说,你从远路上来,为什么不回家去呢。
And when they had told David, saying, Uriah went not down unto his house, David said unto Uriah, Camest thou not from thy journey? why then didst thou not go down unto thine house?

第11段

乌利亚对大卫说,约柜和以色列与犹大兵都住在棚里,我主约押和我主(或作王)的仆人都在田野安营,我岂可回家吃喝,与妻子同寝呢。我敢在王面前起誓(原文作我指着王和王的性命起誓)。
And Uriah said unto David, The ark, and Israel, and Judah, abide in tents; and my lord Joab, and the servants of my lord, are encamped in the open fields; shall I then go into mine house, to eat and to drink, and to lie with my wife? as thou livest, and as thy soul liveth, I will not do this thing.

第12段

大卫吩咐乌利亚说,你今日仍住在这里,明日我打发你去。于是乌利亚那日和次日住在耶路撒冷。
And David said to Uriah, Tarry here to day also, and to morrow I will let thee depart. So Uriah abode in Jerusalem that day, and the morrow.

第13段

大卫召了乌利亚来,叫他在自己面前吃喝,使他喝醉。到了晚上,乌利亚出去与他主的仆人一同住宿,还没有回到家里去。
And when David had called him, he did eat and drink before him; and he made him drunk: and at even he went out to lie on his bed with the servants of his lord, but went not down to his house.

第14段

次日早晨,大卫写信与约押,交乌利亚随手带去。
And it came to pass in the morning, that David wrote a letter to Joab, and sent it by the hand of Uriah.

第15段

信内写着说,要派乌利亚前进,到阵势极险之处,你们便退后,使他被杀。
And he wrote in the letter, saying, Set ye Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retire ye from him, that he may be smitten, and die.

第16段

约押围城的时候,知道敌人那里有勇士,便将乌利亚派在那里。
And it came to pass, when Joab observed the city, that he assigned Uriah unto a place where he knew that valiant men were.

第17段

城里的人出来和约押打仗。大卫的仆人中有几个被杀的,赫人乌利亚也死了。
And the men of the city went out, and fought with Joab: and there fell some of the people of the servants of David; and Uriah the Hittite died also.

第18段

于是,约押差人去将争战的一切事告诉大卫,
Then Joab sent and told David all the things concerning the war;

第19段

又嘱咐使者说,你把争战的一切事对王说完了,
And charged the messenger, saying, When thou hast made an end of telling the matters of the war unto the king,

第20段

王若发怒,问你说,你们打仗为什么挨近城墙呢。岂不知敌人必从城上射箭吗。
And if so be that the king's wrath arise, and he say unto thee, Wherefore approached ye so nigh unto the city when ye did fight? knew ye not that they would shoot from the wall?

第21段

从前打死耶路比设(就是耶路巴力,见士师记九章一节)儿子亚比米勒的是谁呢。岂不是一个妇人从城上抛下一块上磨石来,打在他身上,他就死在提备斯吗。你们为什么挨近城墙呢?你就说,王的仆人,赫人乌利亚也死了。
Who smote Abimelech the son of Jerubbesheth? did not a woman cast a piece of a millstone upon him from the wall, that he died in Thebez? why went ye nigh the wall? then say thou, Thy servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.

第22段

使者起身,来见大卫,照着约押所吩咐他的话奏告大卫。
So the messenger went, and came and shewed David all that Joab had sent him for.

第23段

使者对大卫说,敌人强过我们,出到郊野与我们打仗,我们追杀他们,直到城门口。
And the messenger said unto David, Surely the men prevailed against us, and came out unto us into the field, and we were upon them even unto the entering of the gate.

第24段

射箭的从城上射王的仆人,射死几个,赫人乌利亚也死了。
And the shooters shot from off the wall upon thy servants; and some of the king's servants be dead, and thy servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.

第25段

王向使者说,你告诉约押说,不要因这事愁闷,刀剑或吞灭这人或吞灭那人,没有一定的。你只管竭力攻城,将城倾覆。可以用这话勉励约押。
Then David said unto the messenger, Thus shalt thou say unto Joab, Let not this thing displease thee, for the sword devoureth one as well as another: make thy battle more strong against the city, and overthrow it: and encourage thou him.

第26段

乌利亚的妻听见丈夫乌利亚死了,就为他哀哭。
And when the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she mourned for her husband.

第27段

哀哭的日子过了,大卫差人将她接到宫里,她就作了大卫的妻,给大卫生了一个儿子。但大卫所行的这事,耶和华甚不喜悦。
And when the mourning was past, David sent and fetched her to his house, and she became his wife, and bare him a son. But the thing that David had done displeased the LORD.
