士师记 1

犹大支派攻打迦南人

1约书亚去世以后,以色列人求问耶和华:“我们哪一个支派先上去攻打迦南人呢?” 耶和华说:“犹大支派先去,我已把那片土地交在他们手中了。” 犹大人对西缅人说:“请跟我们一同到我们分得的地方攻打迦南人,我们也会同样帮助你们。”于是,西缅人便与犹大人同去。 犹大人攻打迦南人和比利洗人,耶和华使他们得胜,在比色杀了一万敌军。 他们又在那里遇见亚多尼·比色,与他交战,打败了他带领的迦南人和比利洗人。 亚多尼·比色逃跑,他们追上去擒住他,砍掉他的大拇指和大脚趾。 亚多尼·比色说:“从前七十个王的大拇指和大脚趾被我砍掉,在我桌下捡食物碎屑,现在上帝照我的行为报应我了。”他们把他带到耶路撒冷,他死在了那里。

犹大人攻陷耶路撒冷,杀了城内的所有居民,并放火焚城。 随后,他们下去攻打住在山区、南地和丘陵的迦南人, 10 又进攻住在希伯仑的迦南人,杀了示筛、亚希幔和挞买。希伯仑从前叫基列·亚巴。

11 他们从那里出兵攻打底璧,那里从前叫基列·西弗。 12 迦勒说:“谁攻取基列·西弗,我就把女儿押撒嫁给他。” 13 迦勒的兄弟基纳斯的儿子俄陀聂攻取了那城,迦勒便把女儿押撒嫁给他。 14 押撒出嫁的时候,劝丈夫向她父亲要一块田。她刚下驴,迦勒便问她:“你想要什么?” 15 她回答说:“求你恩待我,你既然把南部的干地赐给我,求你也把水泉给我吧。”于是,迦勒把上泉和下泉都给了她。

16 摩西岳父的后代基尼人和犹大人一同离开棕树城[a],到犹大南部旷野的亚拉得附近,跟当地人一起居住。 17 之后,犹大人随西缅人一起攻打洗法城内的迦南人,彻底毁灭了那城。因此那城叫何珥玛[b] 18 犹大人又夺取了迦萨、亚实基伦和以革伦三座城邑及周围地区。 19 耶和华与犹大人同在。他们攻占了山区,却没能赶走平原的居民,因为那里的人有铁战车。 20 照摩西的吩咐,迦勒得到了希伯仑。他把亚衲三族的人从那里赶走。 21 便雅悯人没有赶走居住在耶路撒冷的耶布斯人,耶布斯人至今仍和他们住在一起。

22 约瑟家族也上去攻打伯特利,耶和华与他们同在。 23 他们先派人去打探伯特利,那里从前名叫路斯。 24 探子看见一个人从城里出来,就对他说:“请你告诉我们进城的路,我们必善待你。” 25 那人便告诉他们进城的路,他们杀了城内所有的居民,只放走了那人及其全家。 26 后来,那人搬到赫人的地方,筑了一座城,称之为路斯,沿用至今。

27 玛拿西人没有赶走伯·善、他纳、多珥、以伯莲和米吉多众城邑及周围村庄的居民,因为这些迦南人执意住在那里。 28 以色列人强盛时,就强迫他们服劳役,却没有全部赶走他们。

29 以法莲人没有赶走住在基色的迦南人,这些迦南人仍然住在他们当中。

30 西布伦人没有赶走基伦和拿哈拉的居民,这些迦南人仍然住在他们当中,为他们服劳役。

31 亚设人没有赶走亚柯、西顿、亚黑拉、亚革悉、黑巴、亚弗革和利合的居民, 32 于是亚设人住在这些迦南人当中。

33 拿弗他利人没有赶走伯·示麦和伯·亚纳的居民,于是就住在这些迦南人当中,强迫他们服劳役。

34 亚摩利人强迫但人住在山区,不准他们下到平原。 35 亚摩利人执意住在希烈山、亚雅伦和沙宾,但约瑟家族强盛时,就强迫他们服劳役。 36 亚摩利人的边界从亚克拉滨山坡起,一直到西拉以北。

Judges 1

The Israelites Fight Against the Remaining Canaanites

1Joshua died. After that, the Israelites spoke to the Lord. They asked him, “Who of us will go up first and fight against the Canaanites?”

The Lord answered, “The tribe of Judah will go up. I have handed the land over to them.”

Then the men of Judah spoke to their fellow Israelites, the men of Simeon. They said, “Come up with us. Come into the territory Joshua gave us. Help us fight against the Canaanites. Then we’ll go with you into your territory.” So the men of Simeon went with them.

When the men of Judah attacked, the Lord helped them. He handed the Canaanites and Perizzites over to them. They struck down 10,000 men at Bezek. The men of Judah found Adoni-Bezek there. They fought against him. They struck down the Canaanites and Perizzites. But Adoni-Bezek ran away. The men of Judah chased him and caught him. Then they cut off his thumbs and big toes.

Adoni-Bezek said, “I cut off the thumbs and big toes of 70 kings. I made them pick up scraps under my table. Now God has paid me back for what I did to them.” The men of Judah brought Adoni-Bezek to Jerusalem. That’s where he died.

The men of Judah attacked Jerusalem and captured it. They set the city on fire. They killed its people with their swords.

After that, the men of Judah went down to fight against some Canaanites. Those Canaanites were living in the central hill country. They also fought against those living in the Negev Desert and the western hills. 10 Then the men of Judah marched out against the Canaanites living in Hebron. Hebron used to be called Kiriath Arba. The men of Judah won the battle over Sheshai, Ahiman and Talmai. 11 From Hebron they marched out against the people living in Debir. It used to be called Kiriath Sepher.

12 Caleb said, “I will give my daughter Aksah to be married. I’ll give her to the man who attacks and captures Kiriath Sepher.” 13 Othniel captured it. So Caleb gave his daughter Aksah to him to be his wife. Othniel was the son of Kenaz. He was Caleb’s younger brother.

14 One day Aksah came to Othniel. She begged him to ask her father for a field. When she got off her donkey, Caleb asked her, “What can I do for you?”

15 She replied, “Do me a special favor. You have given me some land in the Negev Desert. Give me springs of water also.” So Caleb gave her the upper and lower springs.

16 Moses’ father-in-law was a Kenite. His family went up from Jericho. Jericho was also known as the City of Palm Trees. His family went up with the people of Judah to the Desert of Judah. They went there to live among its people. Those people were living in the Negev Desert near Arad.

17 The men of Judah marched out with their fellow Israelites, the men of Simeon. They attacked the people of Canaan living in Zephath. They set the city apart to the Lord in a special way to be destroyed. That’s why the city was called Hormah. 18 The men of Judah captured Gaza, Ashkelon and Ekron. They also captured the territory around each of those cities.

19 The Lord was with the men of Judah. They took over the central hill country. But they weren’t able to drive the people out of the plains. That’s because those people used chariots that had some iron parts. 20 Moses had promised to give Hebron to Caleb. So Hebron was given to Caleb. He drove the three sons of Anak out of it. 21 But the people of Benjamin did not drive out the Jebusites living in Jerusalem. So to this day they live there with the people of Benjamin.

22 The tribes of Joseph attacked Bethel. The Lord was with them. 23 They sent men to Bethel to check it out. It used to be called Luz. 24 Those who were sent saw a man coming out of the city. They said to him, “Show us how to get into the city. If you do, we’ll see that you are treated well.” 25 So he showed them how to get in. The men of Joseph killed the people in the city with their swords. But they spared the man from Bethel. They also spared his whole family. 26 Then he went to the land of the Hittites. He built a city there. He called it Luz. That’s still its name to this day.

27 But the tribe of Manasseh didn’t drive out the people of Beth Shan. They didn’t drive out the people of Taanach, Dor, Ibleam and Megiddo. And they didn’t drive out the people of the settlements that are around those cities either. That’s because the Canaanites had made up their minds to continue living in that land. 28 Later, Israel became stronger. Then they forced the Canaanites to work hard for them. But Israel never drove them out completely. 29 The tribe of Ephraim didn’t drive out the Canaanites living in Gezer. So the Canaanites continued to live there among them. 30 The tribe of Zebulun didn’t drive out the Canaanites living in Kitron and Nahalol. So these Canaanites lived among them. But the people of Zebulun forced the Canaanites to work hard for them. 31 The tribe of Asher didn’t drive out the people living in Akko and Sidon. They didn’t drive out the people of Ahlab, Akzib, Helbah, Aphek and Rehob. 32 So the people of Asher lived among the Canaanites who were in the land. 33 The tribe of Naphtali didn’t drive out the people living in Beth Shemesh and Beth Anath. So the people of Naphtali lived among the Canaanites who were in the land. The people of Beth Shemesh and Beth Anath were forced to work hard for them. 34 The Amorites made the people of Dan stay in the central hill country. They didn’t let them come down into the plain. 35 The Amorites made up their minds to stay in Mount Heres. They also stayed in Aijalon and Shaalbim. But the power of the tribes of Joseph grew. Then the Amorites were forced to work hard for them. 36 The border of the Amorites started at Scorpion Pass. It went to Sela and even past it.
