31:1 这事既都完毕,在那里的以色列众人就到犹大的城邑,打碎柱像,砍断木偶,又在犹大,便雅悯,以法莲,玛拿西遍地将邱坛和祭坛拆毁净尽。于是以色列众人各回各城,各归各地。

Now when all this was finished, all Israel that were present went out to the cities of Judah, and brake the images in pieces, and cut down the groves, and threw down the high places and the altars out of all Judah and Benjamin, in Ephraim also and Manasseh, until they had utterly destroyed them all. Then all the children of Israel returned, every man to his possession, into their own cities.

31:2 希西家派定祭司利未人的班次,各按各职献燔祭和平安祭,又在耶和华殿(原文作营)门内事奉,称谢颂赞耶和华。

And Hezekiah appointed the courses of the priests and the Levites after their courses, every man according to his service, the priests and Levites for burnt offerings and for peace offerings, to minister, and to give thanks, and to praise in the gates of the tents of the LORD.

31:3 王又从自己的产业中定出分来为燔祭,就是早晚的燔祭和安息日,月朔,并节期的燔祭,都是按耶和华律法上所载的。

He appointed also the king’s portion of his substance for the burnt offerings, to wit, for the morning and evening burnt offerings, and the burnt offerings for the sabbaths, and for the new moons, and for the set feasts, as it is written in the law of the LORD.

31:4 又吩咐住耶路撒冷的百姓将祭司,利未人所应得的分给他们,使他们专心遵守耶和华的律法。

Moreover he commanded the people that dwelt in Jerusalem to give the portion of the priests and the Levites, that they might be encouraged in the law of the LORD.

31:5 谕旨一出,以色列人就把初熟的五谷,新酒,油,蜜,和田地的出产多多送来,又把各物的十分之一送来的极多。

And as soon as the commandment came abroad, the children of Israel brought in abundance the firstfruits of corn, wine, and oil, and honey, and of all the increase of the field; and the tithe of all things brought they in abundantly.

31:6 住犹大各城的以色列人和犹大人也将牛羊的十分之一,并分别为圣归耶和华他们神之物,就是十分取一之物,尽都送来,积成堆垒。

And concerning the children of Israel and Judah, that dwelt in the cities of Judah, they also brought in the tithe of oxen and sheep, and the tithe of holy things which were consecrated unto the LORD their God, and laid them by heaps.

31:7 从三月积起,到七月才完。

In the third month they began to lay the foundation of the heaps, and finished them in the seventh month.

31:8 希西家和众首领来,看见堆垒,就称颂耶和华,又为耶和华的民以色列人祝福。

And when Hezekiah and the princes came and saw the heaps, they blessed the LORD, and his people Israel.

31:9 希西家向祭司,利未人查问这堆垒。

Then Hezekiah questioned with the priests and the Levites concerning the heaps.

31:10 撒督家的大祭司亚撒利雅回答说,自从民将供物送到耶和华殿以来,我们不但吃饱,且剩下的甚多。因为耶和华赐福给他的民,所剩下的才这样丰盛。

And Azariah the chief priest of the house of Zadok answered him, and said, Since the people began to bring the offerings into the house of the LORD, we have had enough to eat, and have left plenty: for the LORD hath blessed his people; and that which is left is this great store.

31:11 希西家吩咐在耶和华殿里预备仓房,他们就预备了。

Then Hezekiah commanded to prepare chambers in the house of the LORD; and they prepared them,

31:12 他们诚心将供物和十分取一之物,并分别为圣之物,都搬入仓内。利未人歌楠雅掌管这事,他兄弟示每为副管。

And brought in the offerings and the tithes and the dedicated things faithfully: over which Cononiah the Levite was ruler, and Shimei his brother was the next.

31:13 耶歇,亚撒细雅,拿哈,亚撒黑,耶利末,约撒拔,以列,伊斯玛基雅,玛哈,比拿雅都是督理,在歌楠雅和他兄弟示每的手下,是希西家王和管理神殿的亚撒利雅所派的。

And Jehiel, and Azaziah, and Nahath, and Asahel, and Jerimoth, and Jozabad, and Eliel, and Ismachiah, and Mahath, and Benaiah, were overseers under the hand of Cononiah and Shimei his brother, at the commandment of Hezekiah the king, and Azariah the ruler of the house of God.

31:14 守东门的利未人音拿的儿子可利,掌管乐意献与神的礼物,发放献与耶和华的供物和至圣的物。

And Kore the son of Imnah the Levite, the porter toward the east, was over the freewill offerings of God, to distribute the oblations of the LORD, and the most holy things.

31:15 在他手下有伊甸,泯雅泯,耶书亚,示玛雅,亚玛利雅,示迦尼雅,在祭司的各城里供紧要的职任,无论弟兄大小,都按着班次分给他们。

And next him were Eden, and Miniamin, and Jeshua, and Shemaiah, Amariah, and Shecaniah, in the cities of the priests, in their set office, to give to their brethren by courses, as well to the great as to the small:

31:16 按家谱,三岁以外的男丁,凡每日进耶和华殿,按班次供职的,也分给他。

Beside their genealogy of males, from three years old and upward, even unto every one that entereth into the house of the LORD, his daily portion for their service in their charges according to their courses;

31:17 又按宗族家谱分给祭司,按班次职任分给二十岁以外的利未人,

Both to the genealogy of the priests by the house of their fathers, and the Levites from twenty years old and upward, in their charges by their courses;

31:18 又按家谱计算,分给他们会中的妻子,儿女。因他们身供要职,自洁成圣。

And to the genealogy of all their little ones, their wives, and their sons, and their daughters, through all the congregation: for in their set office they sanctified themselves in holiness:

31:19 按名派定的人要把应得的分给亚伦子孙,住在各城郊野,祭司所有的男丁和一切载入家谱的利未人。

Also of the sons of Aaron the priests, which were in the fields of the suburbs of their cities, in every several city, the men that were expressed by name, to give portions to all the males among the priests, and to all that were reckoned by genealogies among the Levites.

31:20 希西家在犹大遍地这样办理,行耶和华他神眼中看为善为正为忠的事。

And thus did Hezekiah throughout all Judah, and wrought that which was good and right and truth before the LORD his God.

31:21 凡他所行的,无论是办神殿的事,是遵律法守诫命,是寻求他的神,都是尽心去行,无不亨通。

And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.

历代志下31参考

若要灵性复兴,先要对付偶像;我生命中仍有不少偶像?是──
31:1 拜偶像为甚么罪大恶极?因为以色列人虽然可以亲近独一的真神,他们却一直敬拜毫无生命气息的、用木头石头所造的偶像。他们对敬拜真神的事置之不理,不拜造物之主,却拜受造之物。神不在心中居首位的时候,我们也会犯同样拜偶像之罪。我们想到财富、宴乐、物质产业、声望多过想到神时,实际上就是拜这些为神了。犹大人因为敬拜偶像,最后被掳到外邦(36:14-17)。我们虽然不至于被敌人俘掳而流落异地,但是若看重属世的东西过于属灵的事,必然受神的管教。

圣殿复修,祭司复职──
31:2-21 邪恶的君王在位掌权,祭司就得不到政府的供养。现在希西家王修理好圣殿,按照大卫王起初所定的计划(参代上23:6-23;24:3-19),将祭司分成班次,叫他们重新在圣殿供职。

十一奉献归给神,理所当然我当行,可是……
31:4-8 希西家恢复犹大人的十一奉献条例,叫百姓将自己收入的十分之一献给祭司和利未人,使他们能专心事奉神、也服事人民。百姓立刻遵从,慷慨地回应。神的工作需要百姓的支持。神是否从你的收入之中得著他所当得的分呢?慷慨使我们的奉献讨神的喜悦(参林后8;9)。如果所有的基督徒都始终如一,依照这种样式奉献的话,教会的光景将是何等辉煌!

希西家并不是尽善尽美的人,却得到神的称赞。他生活中有何榜样值得我学习?
31:20-21 因为希西家行“耶和华他神眼中看为善为正为忠的事”,他就使犹大人民有属灵的更新。他的行动也是我们更新的榜样。(1)他纪念神的怜悯(30:9)。(2)他不理别人的讥诮,竭力推行宗教改革(30:10)。(3)他除恶务尽,灭绝影响生命的种种歪风(30:14;31:1)。(4)他为人民代祷,求耶和华赦免(30:15-20)。(5)他允许人民自动自发地延长敬拜(30:23)。(6)他对神的工作慷慨地奉献(31:3)。在你的生活之中,如果缺少以上的任何一项,请你将他的榜样用在你身上,把你自己重新交托给神吧。
