旧约 撒母耳记下 第2章

第1段

此后,大卫问耶和华说,我上犹大的一个城去可以吗。耶和华说,可以。大卫说,我上哪一个城去呢。耶和华说,上希伯仑去。
And it came to pass after this, that David enquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up into any of the cities of Judah? And the LORD said unto him, Go up. And David said, Whither shall I go up? And he said, Unto Hebron.

第2段

于是大卫和他的两个妻,一个是耶斯列人亚希暖,一个是作过迦密人拿八妻的亚比该,都上那里去了。
So David went up thither, and his two wives also, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess, and Abigail Nabal's wife the Carmelite.

大卫也将跟随他的人和他们各人的眷属一同带上去,住在希伯仑的城邑中。
And his men that were with him did David bring up, every man with his household: and they dwelt in the cities of Hebron.

第4段

犹大人来到希伯仑,在那里膏大卫作犹大家的王。有人告诉大卫说,葬埋扫罗的是基列雅比人。
And the men of Judah came, and there they anointed David king over the house of Judah. And they told David, saying, That the men of Jabeshgilead were they that buried Saul.

第5段

大卫就差人去见基列雅比人,对他们说,你们厚待你们的主扫罗,将他葬埋。愿耶和华赐福与你们。
And David sent messengers unto the men of Jabeshgilead, and said unto them, Blessed be ye of the LORD, that ye have shewed this kindness unto your lord, even unto Saul, and have buried him.

第6段

你们既行了这事,愿耶和华以慈爱诚实待你们,我也要为此厚待你们。
And now the LORD shew kindness and truth unto you: and I also will requite you this kindness, because ye have done this thing.

第7段

现在你们的主扫罗死了,犹大家已经膏我作他们的王,所以你们要刚强奋勇。
Therefore now let your hands be strengthened, and be ye valiant: for your master Saul is dead, and also the house of Judah have anointed me king over them.

Then there arose and went over by number twelve of Benjamin, which pertained to Ishbosheth the son of Saul, and twelve of the servants of David.

第16段

彼此揪头,用刀刺肋,一同仆倒。所以,那地叫作希利甲哈素林,就在基遍。
And they caught every one his fellow by the head, and thrust his sword in his fellow's side; so they fell down together: wherefore that place was called Helkathhazzurim, which is in Gibeon.

那日的战事凶猛,押尼珥和以色列人败在大卫的仆人面前。
And there was a very sore battle that day; and Abner was beaten, and the men of Israel, before the servants of David.

第18段

在那里有洗鲁雅的三个儿子,约押,亚比筛,亚撒黑。亚撒黑脚快如野鹿般。

Then Abner looked behind him, and said, Art thou Asahel? And he answered, I am.

And Abner said to him, Turn thee aside to thy right hand or to thy left, and lay thee hold on one of the young men, and take thee his armour. But Asahel would not turn aside from following of him.

第22段

押尼珥又对亚撒黑说,你转开不追赶我吧。我何必杀你呢。若杀你,有什么脸见你哥哥约押呢。
And Abner said again to Asahel, Turn thee aside from following me: wherefore should I smite thee to the ground? how then should I hold up my face to Joab thy brother?

第23段

亚撒黑仍不肯转开。故此,押尼珥就用枪??刺入他的肚腹,甚至枪从背后透出,亚撒黑就在那里仆倒而死。众人赶到亚撒黑仆倒而死的地方,就都站住。
Howbeit he refused to turn aside: wherefore Abner with the hinder end of the spear smote him under the fifth rib, that the spear came out behind him; and he fell down there, and died in the same place: and it came to pass, that as many as came to the place where Asahel fell down and died stood still.

And the children of Benjamin gathered themselves together after Abner, and became one troop, and stood on the top of an hill.

押尼珥呼叫约押说,刀剑岂可永远杀人吗。你岂不知终久必有苦楚吗。你要等何时才叫百姓回去,不追赶弟兄呢。
Then Abner called to Joab, and said, Shall the sword devour for ever? knowest thou not that it will be bitterness in the latter end? how long shall it be then, ere thou bid the people return from following their brethren?

第27段

约押说,我指着永生的神起誓,你若不说戏耍的那句话,今日早晨百姓就回去,不追赶弟兄了。
And Joab said, As God liveth, unless thou hadst spoken, surely then in the morning the people had gone up every one from following his brother.

第28段

于是约押吹角,众民就站住,不再追赶以色列人,也不再打仗了。
So Joab blew a trumpet, and all the people stood still, and pursued after Israel no more, neither fought they any more.
