旧约 撒母耳记下 第4章

第1段

扫罗的儿子伊施波设听见押尼珥死在希伯仑,手就发软。以色列众人也都惊惶。
And when Saul's son heard that Abner was dead in Hebron, his hands were feeble, and all the Israelites were troubled.

第2段

扫罗的儿子伊施波设有两个军长,一名巴拿,一名利甲,是便雅悯支派,比录人临门的儿子。比录也属便雅悯。
And Saul's son had two men that were captains of bands: the name of the one was Baanah, and the name of the other Rechab, the sons of Rimmon a Beerothite, of the children of Benjamin: (for Beeroth also was reckoned to Benjamin.

第3段

比录人早先逃到基他音,在那里寄居,直到今日。
And the Beerothites fled to Gittaim, and were sojourners there until this day.)

第4段

扫罗的儿子约拿单有一个儿子名叫米非波设,是瘸腿的。扫罗和约拿单死亡的消息从耶斯列传到的时候,他才五岁。他乳母抱着他逃跑。因为跑得太急,孩子掉在地上,腿就瘸了。
And Jonathan, Saul's son, had a son that was lame of his feet. He was five years old when the tidings came of Saul and Jonathan out of Jezreel, and his nurse took him up, and fled: and it came to pass, as she made haste to flee, that he fell, and became lame. And his name was Mephibosheth.

第5段

一日,比录人临门的两个儿子利甲和巴拿出去,约在午热的时候到了伊施波设的家。伊施波设正睡午觉。
And the sons of Rimmon the Beerothite, Rechab and Baanah, went, and came about the heat of the day to the house of Ishbosheth, who lay on a bed at noon.

第6段

他们进了房子,假作要取麦子,就刺透伊施波设的肚腹,逃跑了。
And they came thither into the midst of the house, as though they would have fetched wheat; and they smote him under the fifth rib: and Rechab and Baanah his brother escaped.

第7段

他们进房子的时候,伊施波设正在卧房里躺在床上,他们将他杀死,割了他的首级,拿着首级在亚拉巴走了一夜,
For when they came into the house, he lay on his bed in his bedchamber, and they smote him, and slew him, and beheaded him, and took his head, and gat them away through the plain all night.

第8段

将伊施波设的首级拿到希伯仑见大卫王,说,王的仇敌扫罗曾寻索王的性命。看哪,这是他儿子伊施波设的首级。耶和华今日为我主我王在扫罗和他后裔的身上报了仇。
And they brought the head of Ishbosheth unto David to Hebron, and said to the king, Behold the head of Ishbosheth the son of Saul thine enemy, which sought thy life; and the LORD hath avenged my lord the king this day of Saul, and of his seed.

第9段

大卫对比录人临门的儿子利甲和他兄弟巴拿说,我指着救我性命脱离一切苦难,永生的耶和华起誓,
And David answered Rechab and Baanah his brother, the sons of Rimmon the Beerothite, and said unto them, As the LORD liveth, who hath redeemed my soul out of all adversity,

第10段

从前有人报告我说,扫罗死了,他自以为报好消息。我就拿住他,将他杀在洗革拉,这就作了他报消息的赏赐。
When one told me, saying, Behold, Saul is dead, thinking to have brought good tidings, I took hold of him, and slew him in Ziklag, who thought that I would have given him a reward for his tidings:

第11段

何况恶人将义人杀在他的床上,我岂不向你们讨流他血的罪,从世上除灭你们呢。
How much more, when wicked men have slain a righteous person in his own house upon his bed? shall I not therefore now require his blood of your hand, and take you away from the earth?

第12段

于是大卫吩咐少年人将他们杀了,砍断他们的手脚,挂在希伯仑的池旁,却将伊施波设的首级葬在希伯仑押尼珥的坟墓里。
And David commanded his young men, and they slew them, and cut off their hands and their feet, and hanged them up over the pool in Hebron. But they took the head of Ishbosheth, and buried it in the sepulchre of Abner in Hebron.
