列王纪下 1

耶和华责备亚哈谢

1亚哈死后,摩押背叛以色列。 一天,亚哈谢从撒玛利亚王宫的楼台上掉下来,受了伤,就派使者去求问以革伦的神明巴力·西卜,看自己能否痊愈。 耶和华的天使对提斯比人以利亚说:“你去截住撒玛利亚王的使者,对他们说,‘你们为什么去求问以革伦的神明巴力·西卜?难道以色列没有上帝吗?’ 因此耶和华说,‘亚哈谢再也不能下床了,他必定死。’”以利亚就去了。

以利亚将天使的话告诉王的使者后,他们便回去见王。王问他们:“你们为什么这么快就回来了?” 他们答道:“有一个人在路上截住我们,要我们回来告诉你,耶和华对你说,‘你差人去求问以革伦的神明巴力·西卜,是因为以色列没有上帝吗?因此,你再也不能下床了,你必定死。’” 王又问他们:“在路上截住你们、对你们说这些话的,是什么样的人?” 他们答道:“那人身穿毛皮衣服,腰束皮带。”王说:“他是提斯比人以利亚。”

于是,王派一个五十夫长率领五十人去找以利亚。那时,以利亚正坐在山顶上。五十夫长到了那里,对他说:“上帝的仆人啊,王命令你下来。” 10 以利亚说:“我若是上帝的仆人,愿火从天降下烧死你和你的五十个部下。”火立刻从天降下,烧死了五十夫长和他的五十个部下。 11 亚哈谢王又派一个五十夫长率领五十人去以利亚那里,五十夫长对以利亚说:“上帝的仆人啊,王命令你马上下来。” 12 以利亚说:“我若是上帝的仆人,愿火从天降下,烧死你和你的五十个部下。”上帝的火从天降下,烧死了五十夫长和他的五十个部下。

13 王再次派一个五十夫长率领五十人前去。五十夫长上去,双膝跪在以利亚面前,哀求道:“上帝的仆人啊,求你饶了我和你的五十名仆人的性命。 14 前两个五十夫长和他们的部下都被天上降下的火烧死了,现在求你饶我一命!” 15 耶和华的天使对以利亚说:“不要害怕,跟他去吧!”以利亚就起来跟他去见王。 16 以利亚对王说:“耶和华说,‘你差人去求问以革伦的神明巴力·西卜,是因为以色列没有上帝可以求问吗?因此,你再也不能下床了,你必定死。’”

17 亚哈谢果然死了,正如耶和华借以利亚所说的。他没有儿子,他兄弟约兰继位,那年是犹大王约沙法的儿子约兰执政第二年。 18 亚哈谢其他的事都记在以色列的列王史上。

2 Kings 1

Ahaziah’s Messengers Meet Elijah

1Now Moab rebelled against Israel after the death of Ahab. And Ahaziah fell through the lattice in his upper chamber which was in Samaria, and became ill. So he sent messengers and said to them, “Go, inquire of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, whether I will recover from this sickness.” But the angel of the Lord said to Elijah the Tishbite, “Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria and say to them, ‘Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are going to inquire of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron?’ Now therefore thus says the Lord, ‘[a]You shall not come down from the bed where you have gone up, but you shall surely die.’” Then Elijah departed.

When the messengers returned to him he said to them, “[b]Why have you returned?” They said to him, “A man came up to meet us and said to us, ‘Go, return to the king who sent you and say to him, “Thus says the Lord, ‘Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are sending to inquire of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron? Therefore [c]you shall not come down from the bed where you have gone up, but shall surely die.’”’” He said to them, “What kind of man was he who came up to meet you and spoke these words to you?” They [d]answered him, “He was a hairy man with a leather girdle [e]bound about his loins.” And he said, “It is Elijah the Tishbite.”

Then the king sent to him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him, and behold, he was sitting on the top of the hill. And he said to him, “O man of God, the king says, ‘Come down.’” 10 Elijah replied to the captain of fifty, “If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty.” Then fire came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty.

11 So he again sent to him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he said to him, “O man of God, thus says the king, ‘Come down quickly.’” 12 Elijah replied to them, “If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty.” Then the fire of God came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty.

13 So he again sent the captain of a third fifty with his fifty. When the third captain of fifty went up, he came and bowed down on his knees before Elijah, and begged him and said to him, “O man of God, please let my life and the lives of these fifty servants of yours be precious in your sight. 14 Behold fire came down from heaven and consumed the first two captains of fifty with their fifties; but now let my [f]life be precious in your sight.” 15 The angel of the Lord said to Elijah, “Go down with him; do not be afraid of him.” So he arose and went down with him to the king. 16 Then he said to him, “Thus says the Lord, ‘Because you have sent messengers to inquire of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron—is it because there is no God in Israel to inquire of His word?—therefore [g]you shall not come down from the bed where you have gone up, but shall surely die.’”

Jehoram Reigns over Israel

17 So Ahaziah died according to the word of the Lord which Elijah had spoken. And because he had no son, Jehoram became king in his place in the second year of Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah. 18 Now the rest of the acts of Ahaziah which he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel?
