历代志下 16

犹大与以色列争战

1亚撒执政第三十六年,以色列王巴沙上来攻打犹大,修筑拉玛,企图隔断犹大王亚撒与外界的联系。 于是,亚撒收集耶和华殿里和王宫库房里的金银,派人送给住在大马士革的亚兰王便·哈达,说: “我们之间应立盟约,像我们的父亲之间立约一样,现在奉上金银为礼,请你取消与以色列王巴沙立的盟约。这样,他就会从我境内退兵。” 便·哈达接受了亚撒王的提议,派将领攻打以色列的城邑,攻占了以云、但、亚伯·玛音和拿弗他利所有的储货城。 巴沙闻讯,就停止修筑拉玛。 亚撒王率领全体犹大人,将巴沙修筑拉玛所用的石头和木材全部搬走,用来修建迦巴和米斯巴。

哈拿尼先见

那时,哈拿尼先见晋见犹大王亚撒说:“因为你不倚靠你的上帝耶和华,反而倚靠亚兰王,所以亚兰王的军队已经从你手中逃脱。 古实人与路比人不是一支强大的军队吗?他们的战车骑兵不是极多吗?然而,因为你倚靠耶和华,耶和华就把他们交在你手中。 耶和华的眼目遍察天下,彰显大能来扶助那些全心归向祂的人。你做了愚蠢的事!从此以后,你必遭遇战祸。” 10 亚撒听了就对先见发怒,把他囚禁在监狱里,同时又压迫一些民众。

亚撒逝世

11 亚撒其他的事自始至终都记在犹大和以色列的列王史上。 12 亚撒执政第三十九年患了严重的脚病。然而,他在病中却没有寻求耶和华的帮助,只寻求医生的帮助。 13 亚撒在他执政第四十一年去世,与他祖先同眠, 14 葬在大卫城他为自己凿的坟墓里。民众把他放在堆满精心调制的各种香料的床上,又点了一堆大火向他致哀。

King James Version

2 Chronicles 16

1In the six and thirtieth year of the reign of Asa Baasha king of Israel came up against Judah, and built Ramah, to the intent that he might let none go out or come in to Asa king of Judah.

Then Asa brought out silver and gold out of the treasures of the house of the Lord and of the king's house, and sent to Benhadad king of Syria, that dwelt at Damascus, saying,

There is a league between me and thee, as there was between my father and thy father: behold, I have sent thee silver and gold; go, break thy league with Baasha king of Israel, that he may depart from me.

And Benhadad hearkened unto king Asa, and sent the captains of his armies against the cities of Israel; and they smote Ijon, and Dan, and Abelmaim, and all the store cities of Naphtali.

And it came to pass, when Baasha heard it, that he left off building of Ramah, and let his work cease.

Then Asa the king took all Judah; and they carried away the stones of Ramah, and the timber thereof, wherewith Baasha was building; and he built therewith Geba and Mizpah.

And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said unto him, Because thou hast relied on the king of Syria, and not relied on the Lord thy God, therefore is the host of the king of Syria escaped out of thine hand.

Were not the Ethiopians and the Lubims a huge host, with very many chariots and horsemen? yet, because thou didst rely on the Lord, he delivered them into thine hand.

For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

10 Then Asa was wroth with the seer, and put him in a prison house; for he was in a rage with him because of this thing. And Asa oppressed some of the people the same time.

11 And, behold, the acts of Asa, first and last, lo, they are written in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel.

12 And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, until his disease was exceeding great: yet in his disease he sought not to the Lord, but to the physicians.

13 And Asa slept with his fathers, and died in the one and fortieth year of his reign.

14 And they buried him in his own sepulchres, which he had made for himself in the city of David, and laid him in the bed which was filled with sweet odours and divers kinds of spices prepared by the apothecaries' art: and they made a very great burning for him.
