约西亚守逾越节

1约西亚耶路撒冷为耶和华守逾越节。一月十四日,众人宰杀逾越节的祭牲。 2他指派祭司各尽其职,鼓励他们在耶和华的殿里事奉, 3又对将自己献给耶和华、负责教导以色列人的利未人说:“你们把圣约柜放在以色列大卫的儿子所罗门建的殿里,不用再扛在肩上。现在你们去事奉你们的上帝耶和华和祂的以色列子民吧。 4你们要按宗族和班次,依照以色列大卫和他儿子所罗门所写的指示,预备自己。 5你们要按你们弟兄所在宗族的班次,侍立在圣所,每个班次中要有几个利未宗族的人。 6你们要宰杀逾越节的羊羔,洁净自己,为你们的弟兄做好准备,依照耶和华借摩西所吩咐的去行。”

7约西亚从自己的产业中,捐出三万只绵羊羔和山羊羔,以及三千头公牛,赐给所有在场的人做逾越节的祭牲。 8他的众官员也自愿为民众、祭司和利未人捐献。管理上帝殿的希勒迦撒迦利亚耶歇献出两千六百只羊羔和三百头牛,给祭司做逾越节的祭牲。 9利未人的首领歌楠雅和他的两个兄弟示玛雅拿坦业,及哈沙比雅耶利约撒拔献出五千只羊羔和五百头牛,给利未人做逾越节的祭牲。

10一切都准备好后,依照王的吩咐,祭司站在自己的地方,利未人按照班次侍立。 11利未人宰杀逾越节的羊羔,祭司从他们手中接过血,洒在坛上,又剥去祭牲的皮。 12他们按照宗族把燔祭分给众人,好使他们按照摩西书上所写的,把祭物献给耶和华。献牛也是这样。 13他们按规定用火烤逾越节的羊羔,在锅里、罐里和盆里煮圣物,然后迅速分给民众。 14之后,利未人为自己和祭司预备祭物,因为做祭司的亚伦子孙要继续献燔祭和脂肪一直到晚上。 15负责歌乐的亚萨子孙依照大卫亚萨希幔和王的先见耶杜顿的吩咐,站在自己的岗位上;殿门守卫都看守各门,不必离开工作岗位,因为他们的弟兄利未人为他们预备了祭物。

16当天,一切事奉的事都办好了,他们就按约西亚王的命令守逾越节,又在耶和华的坛上献燔祭。 17所有在场的以色列人都在那时守逾越节,又守除酵节七天。 18撒母耳先知以来,在以色列从来没有守过这样的逾越节,以色列从没有君王像约西亚、祭司、利未人、所有在场的犹大人和以色列人,以及耶路撒冷的居民这样守过逾越节。 19这次逾越节是在约西亚执政第十八年庆祝的。

约西亚逝世

20约西亚办理完殿里的事后,埃及尼哥上来,要攻打幼发拉底河附近的迦基米施约西亚出兵拦阻。 21尼哥派使者对约西亚说:“犹大王啊,我与你没有恩怨。我今天来不是要攻击你,乃是要攻击与我作战的那一家。上帝吩咐我要速速完成,你不要与上帝作对,免得祂毁灭你,因为上帝与我同在。” 22约西亚却不听上帝借尼哥说的话。他没有退兵,反而乔装上阵,与尼哥会战于米吉多平原。 23约西亚王在战场上中箭受伤,就对仆人说:“我受了重伤,带我离开吧。” 24他的仆人就扶他下战车,上另一辆战车,送到耶路撒冷约西亚死在那里,葬在他祖先的坟墓里。所有犹大耶路撒冷的人都为他哀悼。 25耶利米约西亚作了哀歌,所有的男女歌乐手至今仍用这些哀歌纪念约西亚,成了以色列的传统。这些哀歌都记在《哀歌书》上。

26约西亚其他的事迹和他怎样忠心地遵行耶和华的律法, 27自始至终都记在《以色列和犹大的列王史》上。

King James Version

2 Chronicles 35:1-27

1Moreover Josiah kept a passover unto the LORD in Jerusalem: and they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month. 2And he set the priests in their charges, and encouraged them to the service of the house of the LORD, 3And said unto the Levites that taught all Israel, which were holy unto the LORD, Put the holy ark in the house which Solomon the son of David king of Israel did build; it shall not be a burden upon your shoulders: serve now the LORD your God, and his people Israel, 4And prepare yourselves by the houses of your fathers, after your courses, according to the writing of David king of Israel, and according to the writing of Solomon his son. 5And stand in the holy place according to the divisions of the families of the fathers of your brethren the people, and after the division of the families of the Levites.35.5 the families of the fathers: Heb. the house of the fathers35.5 the people: Heb. the sons of the people 6So kill the passover, and sanctify yourselves, and prepare your brethren, that they may do according to the word of the LORD by the hand of Moses. 7And Josiah gave to the people, of the flock, lambs and kids, all for the passover offerings, for all that were present, to the number of thirty thousand, and three thousand bullocks: these were of the king’s substance.35.7 gave: Heb. offered 8And his princes gave willingly unto the people, to the priests, and to the Levites: Hilkiah and Zechariah and Jehiel, rulers of the house of God, gave unto the priests for the passover offerings two thousand and six hundred small cattle, and three hundred oxen.35.8 gave willingly: Heb. offered, etc 9Conaniah also, and Shemaiah and Nethaneel, his brethren, and Hashabiah and Jeiel and Jozabad, chief of the Levites, gave unto the Levites for passover offerings five thousand small cattle, and five hundred oxen.35.9 gave: Heb. offered 10So the service was prepared, and the priests stood in their place, and the Levites in their courses, according to the king’s commandment. 11And they killed the passover, and the priests sprinkled the blood from their hands, and the Levites flayed them. 12And they removed the burnt offerings, that they might give according to the divisions of the families of the people, to offer unto the LORD, as it is written in the book of Moses. And so did they with the oxen. 13And they roasted the passover with fire according to the ordinance: but the other holy offerings sod they in pots, and in caldrons, and in pans, and divided them speedily among all the people.35.13 divided…: Heb. made them run 14And afterward they made ready for themselves, and for the priests: because the priests the sons of Aaron were busied in offering of burnt offerings and the fat until night; therefore the Levites prepared for themselves, and for the priests the sons of Aaron. 15And the singers the sons of Asaph were in their place, according to the commandment of David, and Asaph, and Heman, and Jeduthun the king’s seer; and the porters waited at every gate; they might not depart from their service; for their brethren the Levites prepared for them.35.15 place: Heb. station 16So all the service of the LORD was prepared the same day, to keep the passover, and to offer burnt offerings upon the altar of the LORD, according to the commandment of king Josiah. 17And the children of Israel that were present kept the passover at that time, and the feast of unleavened bread seven days.35.17 present: Heb. found 18And there was no passover like to that kept in Israel from the days of Samuel the prophet; neither did all the kings of Israel keep such a passover as Josiah kept, and the priests, and the Levites, and all Judah and Israel that were present, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.35.18 present: Heb. found 19In the eighteenth year of the reign of Josiah was this passover kept.

20¶ After all this, when Josiah had prepared the temple, Necho king of Egypt came up to fight against Carchemish by Euphrates: and Josiah went out against him.35.20 temple: Heb. house 21But he sent ambassadors to him, saying, What have I to do with thee, thou king of Judah? I come not against thee this day, but against the house wherewith I have war: for God commanded me to make haste: forbear thee from meddling with God, who is with me, that he destroy thee not.35.21 the house…: Heb. the house of my war 22Nevertheless Josiah would not turn his face from him, but disguised himself, that he might fight with him, and hearkened not unto the words of Necho from the mouth of God, and came to fight in the valley of Megiddo. 23And the archers shot at king Josiah; and the king said to his servants, Have me away; for I am sore wounded.35.23 wounded: Heb. made sick 24His servants therefore took him out of that chariot, and put him in the second chariot that he had; and they brought him to Jerusalem, and he died, and was buried in one of the sepulchres of his fathers. And all Judah and Jerusalem mourned for Josiah.35.24 in one…: or, among the sepulchres

25¶ And Jeremiah lamented for Josiah: and all the singing men and the singing women spake of Josiah in their lamentations to this day, and made them an ordinance in Israel: and, behold, they are written in the lamentations. 26Now the rest of the acts of Josiah, and his goodness, according to that which was written in the law of the LORD,35.26 goodness: Heb. kindnesses 27And his deeds, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah.
