撒母耳记下 7

上帝对大卫的应许

1大卫住在王宫里,耶和华使他安享太平,不受四围的仇敌侵扰。 一天,王对拿单先知说:“你看!我住在香柏木造的王宫中,但上帝的约柜还留在帐篷里。” 拿单答道:“你只管照着自己的想法去做吧,因为耶和华与你同在。” 当晚耶和华对拿单说: “你去告诉我的仆人大卫,‘耶和华说,你岂是为我建造殿宇的人? 从我把以色列人带出埃及那天起,直到今天,我从未住过殿宇,一路上都住在帐篷里。 在我与以色列人同行的日子,我从未责问任何我委派牧养我子民的士师,你为何不为我建香柏木的殿宇呢?’

“现在你要告诉我的仆人大卫,万军之耶和华说,‘你原本在草场牧羊,我召你来做我以色列子民的首领。 无论你去哪里,我都与你同在,为你铲除所有仇敌。现在我要使你声名远播,与世上的伟人齐名。 10-11 我必为我的以色列子民预备一个地方,栽培他们,让他们住在自己的家园,不再受惊扰,不会像从前我设立士师治理他们的时候那样受恶人压迫。我必使你安定,免受仇敌的侵扰。我耶和华向你宣告,我必建立你的王室。 12 你寿终正寝、与祖先同眠之后,我必立你的后裔接替你的王位,使他江山稳固。 13 他必为我的名建造圣殿,我必使他的王位坚立,直到永远。 14 我要做他的父亲,他要做我的儿子。如果他犯了罪,我必用人的杖、世人的鞭子来惩治他, 15 但我的慈爱却不会像离开从你面前被废的扫罗那样离开他。 16 你的家和你的国必在我面前永远坚立,你的王位必永远稳固。’”

17 拿单就把所听到的启示全部告诉大卫。

大卫的祷告

18 于是,大卫王走进会幕,在耶和华面前坐下,说:“主耶和华啊,我是谁?我的家算什么?你竟如此厚待我。 19 主耶和华啊,你觉得这还不够,你还要施恩赐福给你仆人的后代。主耶和华啊,这样的福分岂是常人可以得到的? 20 主耶和华啊,我还能对你说什么呢?你深知你的仆人。 21 你让仆人知道你凭自己的应许、按自己的旨意行了这大事。 22 主耶和华啊,你真伟大!我们从未听过有谁能与你相比,你是独一无二的上帝。 23 世上哪个民族比得上你的以色列子民呢?你从埃及救出他们,让他们做你的子民,又彰显你的大名,行神迹奇事,把列国及其神明从你的以色列子民面前赶走。 24 你让以色列人永远做你的子民,你耶和华做他们的上帝。

25 “耶和华上帝啊,求你永远信守你对仆人和仆人家的应许。 26 这样,你的名必永远被尊崇,人们必说,‘万军之耶和华是治理以色列的上帝。’愿你仆人大卫的家在你面前坚立。 27 以色列的上帝——万军之耶和华啊,因为你曾启示仆人,说你要使我家世代为王,仆人才有勇气这样向你祷告。 28 主耶和华啊,只有你是上帝,你的话真实可靠,你给了仆人美好的应许。 29 现在求你赐福给仆人家,让仆人家在你面前永续不断。主耶和华啊,这些都是你的应许,愿你永远赐福给仆人家。”

King James Version

2 Samuel 7

1And it came to pass, when the king sat in his house, and the Lord had given him rest round about from all his enemies;

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.

And Nathan said to the king, Go, do all that is in thine heart; for the Lord is with thee.

And it came to pass that night, that the word of the Lord came unto Nathan, saying,

Go and tell my servant David, Thus saith the Lord, Shalt thou build me an house for me to dwell in?

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.

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?

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:

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.

10 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,

11 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.

12 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.

13 He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever.

14 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:

15 But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.

16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.

17 According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.

18 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?

19 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?

20 And what can David say more unto thee? for thou, Lord God, knowest thy servant.

21 For thy word's sake, and according to thine own heart, hast thou done all these great things, to make thy servant know them.

22 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.

23 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?

24 For thou hast confirmed to thyself thy people Israel to be a people unto thee for ever: and thou, Lord, art become their God.

25 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.

26 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.

27 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.

28 And now, O Lord God, thou art that God, and thy words be true, and thou hast promised this goodness unto thy servant:

29 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.
