旧约 撒母耳记下 第7章

第1段

王住在自己宫中,耶和华使他安靖,不被四围的仇敌扰乱。
And it came to pass, when the king sat in his house, and the LORD had given him rest round about from all his enemies;

第2段

那时,王对先知拿单说,看哪,我住在香柏木的宫中,神的约柜反在幔子里。
That the king said unto Nathan the prophet, See now, I dwell in an house of cedar, but the ark of God dwelleth within curtains.

第3段

拿单对王说,你可以照你的心意而行,因为耶和华与你同在。
And Nathan said to the king, Go, do all that is in thine heart; for the LORD is with thee.

第4段

当夜,耶和华的话临到拿单说,
And it came to pass that night, that the word of the LORD came unto Nathan, saying,

第5段

你去告诉我仆人大卫,说耶和华如此说,你岂可建造殿宇给我居住呢。
Go and tell my servant David, Thus saith the LORD, Shalt thou build me an house for me to dwell in?

第6段

自从我领以色列人出埃及直到今日,我未曾住过殿宇,常在会幕和帐幕中行走。
Whereas I have not dwelt in any house since the time that I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt, even to this day, but have walked in a tent and in a tabernacle.

第7段

凡我同以色列人所走的地方,我何曾向以色列一支派的士师,就是我吩咐牧养我民以色列的说,你们为何不给我建造香柏木的殿宇呢。
In all the places wherein I have walked with all the children of Israel spake I a word with any of the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people Israel, saying, Why build ye not me an house of cedar?

第8段

现在,你要告诉我仆人大卫,说万军之耶和华如此说,我从羊圈中将你召来,叫你不再跟从羊群,立你作我民以色列的君。
Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel:

第9段

你无论往哪里去,我常与你同在,剪除你的一切仇敌。我必使你得大名,好像世上大大有名的人一样。
And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth.

第10段

我必为我民以色列选定一个地方,栽培他们,使他们住自己的地方,不再迁移。凶恶之子也不像从前扰害他们,
Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime,

第11段

并不像我命士师治理我民以色列的时候一样。我必使你安靖,不被一切仇敌扰乱,并且我耶和华应许你,必为你建立家室。
And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house.

第12段

你寿数满足,与你列祖同睡的时候,我必使你的后裔接续你的位。我也必坚定他的国。
And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.

第13段

他必为我的名建造殿宇。我必坚定他的国位,直到永远。
He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever.

第14段

我要作他的父,他要作我的子。他若犯了罪,我必用人的杖责打他,用人的鞭责罚他。
I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men:

第15段

但我的慈爱仍不离开他,像离开在你面前所废弃的扫罗一样。
But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.

第16段

你的家和你的国必在我(原文作你)面前永远坚立。你的国位也必坚定,直到永远。
And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.

第17段

拿单就按这一切话,照这默示,告诉大卫。
According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.

第18段

于是大卫王进去,坐在耶和华面前,说,主耶和华阿,我是谁。我的家算什么。你竟使我到这地步呢。
Then went king David in, and sat before the LORD, and he said, Who am I, O Lord GOD? and what is my house, that thou hast brought me hitherto?

第19段

主耶和华阿,这在你眼中还看为小,又应许你仆人的家至于久远。主耶和华阿,这岂是人所常遇的事吗。
And this was yet a small thing in thy sight, O Lord GOD; but thou hast spoken also of thy servant's house for a great while to come. And is this the manner of man, O Lord GOD?

第20段

主耶和华阿,我还有何言可以对你说呢。因为你知道你的仆人。
And what can David say more unto thee? for thou, Lord GOD, knowest thy servant.

第21段

你行这大事使仆人知道,是因你所应许的话,也是照你的心意。
For thy word's sake, and according to thine own heart, hast thou done all these great things, to make thy servant know them.

第22段

主耶和华阿,你本为大,照我们耳中听见,没有可比你的。除你以外再无神。
Wherefore thou art great, O LORD God: for there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

第23段

世上有何民能比你的民以色列呢。你从埃及救赎他们作自己的子民,又在你赎出来的民面前行大而可畏的事,驱逐列邦人和他们的神,显出你的大名。
And what one nation in the earth is like thy people, even like Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to himself, and to make him a name, and to do for you great things and terrible, for thy land, before thy people, which thou redeemedst to thee from Egypt, from the nations and their gods?

第24段

你曾坚立你的民以色列作你的子民,直到永远。你耶和华也作了他们的神。
For thou hast confirmed to thyself thy people Israel to be a people unto thee for ever: and thou, LORD, art become their God.

第25段

耶和华神阿,你所应许仆人和仆人家的话,求你坚定,直到永远。照你所说的而行。
And now, O LORD God, the word that thou hast spoken concerning thy servant, and concerning his house, establish it for ever, and do as thou hast said.

第26段

愿人永远尊你的名为大,说,万军之耶和华是治理以色列的神。这样,你仆人大卫的家必在你面前坚立。
And let thy name be magnified for ever, saying, The LORD of hosts is the God over Israel: and let the house of thy servant David be established before thee.

第27段

万军之耶和华以色列的神阿,因你启示你的仆人说,我必为你建立家室,所以仆人大胆向你如此祈祷。
For thou, O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, hast revealed to thy servant, saying, I will build thee an house: therefore hath thy servant found in his heart to pray this prayer unto thee.

第28段

主耶和华阿,惟有你是神。你的话是真实的。你也应许将这福气赐给仆人。
And now, O Lord GOD, thou art that God, and thy words be true, and thou hast promised this goodness unto thy servant:

第29段

现在求你赐福与仆人的家,可以永存在你面前。主耶和华阿,这是你所应许的。愿你永远赐福与仆人的家。
Therefore now let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant, that it may continue for ever before thee: for thou, O Lord GOD, hast spoken it: and with thy blessing let the house of thy servant be blessed for ever.
