列王纪下 7

1以利沙说:“你们要听耶和华的话,耶和华说,‘明天这个时候,在撒玛利亚城门口,三公斤细面粉只卖十一克银子,六公斤大麦也卖十一克银子。’” 一个搀扶王的将领对上帝的仆人说:“即使耶和华打开天上的窗户,也不可能发生这样的事!”以利沙说:“你必亲眼看见,却吃不到。”

撒玛利亚城获救

城门口有四个麻风病人,他们商量说:“我们为什么坐在这里等死呢? 如果我们进城,城里正闹饥荒,我们会饿死;但我们坐在这里也是死,不如去投靠亚兰军。如果他们不杀我们,我们就能活命;如若不然,死就死吧!” 傍晚时分,他们动身去亚兰人的营地,到了营地外边,却发现人影全无。 原来,主使亚兰人听见大队人马和战车的声音。他们以为以色列王雇用了赫人的诸王和埃及人的诸王来攻营, 便在傍晚时分撇下帐篷、马和驴,弃营而逃。 那几个麻风病人到了营地,走进一个帐篷,又吃又喝,把那里的金银和衣服拿走收藏起来,再回来进入另一个帐篷,把财物拿走收藏起来。

后来,他们彼此说:“我们这样做不对。今天是个报好消息的日子,我们却不作声。若等到天亮,我们会受惩罚的。走,我们给王报信去。” 10 他们就去喊城门守卫,对他们说:“我们到了亚兰人的营中,里面不见人影也没有人声,只有拴着的马和驴,帐篷依然在那里。” 11 城门守卫就高声宣告消息,有人去禀告王。 12 王连夜起来,对臣仆说:“我告诉你们是怎么回事。亚兰人知道我们正闹饥荒,就故意离开军营,埋伏在田野,等我们以色列人出城后,好活捉我们,并攻入城中。”

13 一个臣仆说:“不如派人骑着城中仅存的五匹马出去打探一下。反正他们和城中剩下的以色列人一样快要死了。” 14 他们预备了两辆马车,王便命人出去追踪亚兰军、查明实情。 15 探子一路追到约旦河,沿路看见到处都是亚兰军仓皇逃走时丢弃的衣服和装备,便回去禀告王。 16 于是,民众出城抢掠亚兰人的营地。那时,三公斤细面粉只卖十一克银子,六公斤大麦也只卖十一克银子,正如耶和华所言。 17 王派那位搀扶他的将领守在城门口维持秩序,那将领却被涌出的人群踩死,应验了上帝的仆人在王去见他时所说的话。 18 上帝的仆人曾对王说:“明天这个时候,在撒玛利亚城门口,三公斤细面粉只卖十一克银子,六公斤大麦也只卖十一克银子。”

19 但那将领对上帝的仆人说:“即使耶和华打开天上的窗户,也不可能发生这样的事!”上帝的仆人说:“你必亲眼看见,却吃不到。” 20 这话果然应验在他身上,他被人群踩死在城门口。

King James Version

2 Kings 7

1Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord, To morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.

Then a lord on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, Behold, if the Lord would make windows in heaven, might this thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.

And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die?

If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.

And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the camp of the Syrians: and when they were come to the uttermost part of the camp of Syria, behold, there was no man there.

For the Lord had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us.

Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp as it was, and fled for their life.

And when these lepers came to the uttermost part of the camp, they went into one tent, and did eat and drink, and carried thence silver, and gold, and raiment, and went and hid it; and came again, and entered into another tent, and carried thence also, and went and hid it.

Then they said one to another, We do not well: this day is a day of good tidings, and we hold our peace: if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us: now therefore come, that we may go and tell the king's household.

10 So they came and called unto the porter of the city: and they told them, saying, We came to the camp of the Syrians, and, behold, there was no man there, neither voice of man, but horses tied, and asses tied, and the tents as they were.

11 And he called the porters; and they told it to the king's house within.

12 And the king arose in the night, and said unto his servants, I will now shew you what the Syrians have done to us. They know that we be hungry; therefore are they gone out of the camp to hide themselves in the field, saying, When they come out of the city, we shall catch them alive, and get into the city.

13 And one of his servants answered and said, Let some take, I pray thee, five of the horses that remain, which are left in the city, (behold, they are as all the multitude of Israel that are left in it: behold, I say, they are even as all the multitude of the Israelites that are consumed:) and let us send and see.

14 They took therefore two chariot horses; and the king sent after the host of the Syrians, saying, Go and see.

15 And they went after them unto Jordan: and, lo, all the way was full of garments and vessels, which the Syrians had cast away in their haste. And the messengers returned, and told the king.

16 And the people went out, and spoiled the tents of the Syrians. So a measure of fine flour was sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, according to the word of the Lord.

17 And the king appointed the lord on whose hand he leaned to have the charge of the gate: and the people trode upon him in the gate, and he died, as the man of God had said, who spake when the king came down to him.

18 And it came to pass as the man of God had spoken to the king, saying, Two measures of barley for a shekel, and a measure of fine flour for a shekel, shall be to morrow about this time in the gate of Samaria:

19 And that lord answered the man of God, and said, Now, behold, if the Lord should make windows in heaven, might such a thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.

20 And so it fell out unto him: for the people trode upon him in the gate, and he died.
