13:1 犹大王亚哈谢的儿子约阿施二十三年,耶户的儿子约哈斯在撒马利亚登基作以色列王十七年。

In the three and twentieth year of Joash the son of Ahaziah king of Judah Jehoahaz the son of Jehu began to reign over Israel in Samaria, and reigned seventeen years.

13:2 约哈斯行耶和华眼中看为恶的事,效法尼八的儿子耶罗波安使以色列人陷在罪里的那罪,总不离开。

And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, and followed the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which made Israel to sin; he departed not therefrom.

13:3 于是,耶和华的怒气向以色列人发作,将他们屡次交在亚兰王哈薛和他儿子便哈达的手里。

And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he delivered them into the hand of Hazael king of Syria, and into the hand of Benhadad the son of Hazael, all their days.

13:4 约哈斯恳求耶和华,耶和华就应允他,因为见以色列人所受亚兰王的欺压。

And Jehoahaz besought the LORD, and the LORD hearkened unto him: for he saw the oppression of Israel, because the king of Syria oppressed them.

13:5 耶和华赐给以色列人一位拯救者,使他们脱离亚兰人的手。于是以色列人仍旧安居在家里。

(And the LORD gave Israel a saviour, so that they went out from under the hand of the Syrians: and the children of Israel dwelt in their tents, as beforetime.

13:6 然而他们不离开耶罗波安家使以色列人陷在罪里的那罪,仍然去行,并且在撒马利亚留下亚舍拉。

Nevertheless they departed not from the sins of the house of Jeroboam, who made Israel sin, but walked therein: and there remained the grove also in Samaria.)

13:7 亚兰王灭绝约哈斯的民,践踏他们如禾场上的尘沙,只给约哈斯留下五十马兵,十辆战车,一万步兵。

Neither did he leave of the people to Jehoahaz but fifty horsemen, and ten chariots, and ten thousand footmen; for the king of Syria had destroyed them, and had made them like the dust by threshing.

13:8 约哈斯其馀的事,凡他所行的和他的勇力都写在以色列诸王记上。

Now the rest of the acts of Jehoahaz, and all that he did, and his might, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

13:9 约哈斯与他列祖同睡,葬在撒马利亚。他儿子约阿施接续他作王。

And Jehoahaz slept with his fathers; and they buried him in Samaria: and Joash his son reigned in his stead.

13:10 犹大王约阿施三十七年,约哈斯的儿子约阿施在撒马利亚登基作以色列王十六年。

In the thirty and seventh year of Joash king of Judah began Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz to reign over Israel in Samaria, and reigned sixteen years.

13:11 他行耶和华眼中看为恶的事,不离开尼八的儿子耶罗波安使以色列人陷在罪里的一切罪,仍然去行。

And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD; he departed not from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel sin: but he walked therein.

13:12 约阿施其馀的事,凡他所行的和他与犹大王亚玛谢争战的勇力,都写在以色列诸王记上。

And the rest of the acts of Joash, and all that he did, and his might wherewith he fought against Amaziah king of Judah, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

13:13 约阿施与他列祖同睡,耶罗波安坐了他的位。约阿施与以色列诸王一同葬在撒马利亚。

And Joash slept with his fathers; and Jeroboam sat upon his throne: and Joash was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel.

13:14 以利沙得了必死的病,以色列王约阿施下来看他,伏在他脸上哭泣,说,我父阿。我父阿。以色列的战车马兵阿。

Now Elisha was fallen sick of his sickness whereof he died. And Joash the king of Israel came down unto him, and wept over his face, and said, O my father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof.

13:15 以利沙对他说,你取弓箭来。王就取了弓箭来。

And Elisha said unto him, Take bow and arrows. And he took unto him bow and arrows.

13:16 又对以色列王说,你用手拿弓。王就用手拿弓。以利沙按手在王的手上,

And he said to the king of Israel, Put thine hand upon the bow. And he put his hand upon it: and Elisha put his hands upon the king’s hands.

13:17 说,你开朝东的窗户。他就开了。以利沙说,射箭吧。他就射箭。以利沙说,这是耶和华的得胜箭,就是战胜亚兰人的箭。因为你必在亚弗攻打亚兰人,直到灭尽他们。

And he said, Open the window eastward. And he opened it. Then Elisha said, Shoot. And he shot. And he said, The arrow of the LORD’s deliverance, and the arrow of deliverance from Syria: for thou shalt smite the Syrians in Aphek, till thou have consumed them.

13:18 以利沙又说,取几枝箭来。他就取了来。以利沙说,打地吧。他打了三次,便止住了。

And he said, Take the arrows. And he took them. And he said unto the king of Israel, Smite upon the ground. And he smote thrice, and stayed.

13:19 神人向他发怒,说,应当击打五六次,就能攻打亚兰人直到灭尽。现在只能打败亚兰人三次。

And the man of God was wroth with him, and said, Thou shouldest have smitten five or six times; then hadst thou smitten Syria till thou hadst consumed it: whereas now thou shalt smite Syria but thrice.

13:20 以利沙死了,人将他葬埋。到了新年,有一群摩押人犯境,

And Elisha died, and they buried him. And the bands of the Moabites invaded the land at the coming in of the year.

13:21 有人正葬死人,忽然看见一群人,就把死人抛在以利沙的坟墓里,一碰着以利沙的骸骨,死人就复活,站起来了。

And it came to pass, as they were burying a man, that, behold, they spied a band of men; and they cast the man into the sepulchre of Elisha: and when the man was let down, and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived, and stood up on his feet.

13:22 约哈斯年间,亚兰王哈薛屡次欺压以色列人。

But Hazael king of Syria oppressed Israel all the days of Jehoahaz.

13:23 耶和华却因与亚伯拉罕,以撒,雅各所立的约,仍施恩给以色列人,怜恤他们,眷顾他们,不肯灭尽他们,尚未赶逐他们离开自己面前。

And the LORD was gracious unto them, and had compassion on them, and had respect unto them, because of his covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and would not destroy them, neither cast he them from his presence as yet.

13:24 亚兰王哈薛死了,他儿子便哈达接续他作王。

So Hazael king of Syria died; and Benhadad his son reigned in his stead.

13:25 从前哈薛和约阿施的父亲约哈斯争战,攻取了些城邑,现在约哈斯的儿子约阿施三次打败哈薛的儿子便哈达,就收回了以色列的城邑。

And Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz took again out of the hand of Benhadad the son of Hazael the cities, which he had taken out of the hand of Jehoahaz his father by war. Three times did Joash beat him, and recovered the cities of Israel.

列王记下13参考

我只要神作我的避难所吗?我如何为神而活?
13:4-6 神垂听约哈斯的恳求向他施援。以色列人求神帮助,他就延迟审判,但是人民并未恒久倚赖他,虽然暂时不拜偶像,却少有信仰上的真诚表现。单单在口头上说不犯罪并不足够;必须心口如一,全心全意地为神而活。偶然求神帮助不能代替天天信靠神的生活。

亚兰和以色列鱼蚌相争,得利的却是──
13:5 亚兰国在以色列之北,常与以色列为敌,因为以色列切断了亚兰通往南面的主要贸易通道,而亚兰也截断了以色列往北的通道。假如两国和平共处的话,他们所有的贸易通道就会畅通无阻,商业也会繁荣。以色列与亚兰两国不断争战,没有想到北方的亚述已兴起、且国势日益强大,不久就令他们两国难以抵挡了(16:9;17:6)。

约阿施究竟是哪国的王?
13:9-10 约哈斯的儿子约阿施在公元前798年作以色列王,那时犹大王约阿施的政权已近尾声。在希伯来文中,这二人的名字是同一个字的两种不同写法(中文译名相同)。这两个王用同一个名字,他们二人大概在同一时间一南一北作王。犹大王约阿施开始时是贤君,而以色列王约阿施则是个恶王。

人常崇拜牧者或大能的祷告者,却忘了施能力的神,约阿施如是──我是吗?
13:14 以利沙有先知权能,他为以色列人所行的神迹备受尊崇。约阿施王称呼他为“以色列的战车马兵”。这句话使人想起以利沙对以利亚的称呼(2:12)。约阿施怕失去以利沙,因为他把全国的繁荣都归与以利沙,却没有将这功劳归于神。他的恐惧显示他缺少属灵的悟性。自上一次圣经中提到以利沙膏耶户作王的时间(9:1),至此时最少经过了四十三年。

约阿施的轻忽,告诫我在任何环境中都要警醒……
13:15-19 以利沙吩咐约阿施用箭打地,约阿施勉强应付。结果,以利沙告诉他将来不能完全打败亚兰人。要想完全领受神对我们一生的计划并承受其中的福气,必须完全顺服神的命令。如果我们不肯完全照神的吩咐去做,也就不会得到完全的福分。

以利沙死后骸骨令死人复活的神迹,提醒人甚么?
13:20-21 以利沙虽然死了,他美好的灵性却仍有影响力,甚至能行出神迹,显明他实在是神的先知。这件事也证实神的大能──异教的偶像从没有叫死人复生的事。这神迹再一次唤醒以色列人,去遵从神藉著以利沙赐下的话语。
