33:1 玛拿西登基的时候年十二岁,在耶路撒冷作王五十五年。

Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem:

33:2 他行耶和华眼中看为恶的事,效法耶和华在以色列人面前赶出的外邦人那可憎的事,

But did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, like unto the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel.

33:3 重新建筑他父希西家所拆毁的邱坛,又为巴力筑坛,作木偶,且敬拜事奉天上的万象,

For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had broken down, and he reared up altars for Baalim, and made groves, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them.

33:4 在耶和华的殿宇中筑坛耶和华曾指着这殿说,我的名必永远在耶路撒冷。

Also he built altars in the house of the LORD, whereof the LORD had said, In Jerusalem shall my name be for ever.

33:5 他在耶和华殿的两院中为天上的万象筑坛,

And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD.

33:6 并在欣嫩子谷使他的儿女经火,又观兆,用法术,行邪术,立交鬼的和行巫术的,多行耶和华眼中看为恶的事,惹动他的怒气,

And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.

33:7 又在神殿内立雕刻的偶像。神曾对大卫和他儿子所罗门说,我在以色列各支派中所选择的耶路撒冷和这殿,必立我的名直到永远。

And he set a carved image, the idol which he had made, in the house of God, of which God had said to David and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen before all the tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever:

33:8 以色列人若谨守遵行我藉摩西所吩咐他们的一切法度,律例,典章,我就不再使他们挪移离开我所赐给他们列祖之地。

Neither will I any more remove the foot of Israel from out of the land which I have appointed for your fathers; so that they will take heed to do all that I have commanded them, according to the whole law and the statutes and the ordinances by the hand of Moses.

33:9 玛拿西引诱犹大和耶路撒冷的居民,以致他们行恶比耶和华在以色列人面前所灭的列国更甚。

So Manasseh made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to err, and to do worse than the heathen, whom the LORD had destroyed before the children of Israel.

33:10 耶和华警戒玛拿西和他的百姓,他们却是不听。

And the LORD spake to Manasseh, and to his people: but they would not hearken.

33:11 所以耶和华使亚述王的将帅来攻击他们,用铙钩钩住玛拿西,用铜链锁住他,带到巴比伦去。

Wherefore the LORD brought upon them the captains of the host of the king of Assyria, which took Manasseh among the thorns, and bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon.

33:12 他在急难的时候,就恳求耶和华他的神,且在他列祖的神面前极其自卑。

And when he was in affliction, he besought the LORD his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers,

33:13 他祈祷耶和华,耶和华就允准他的祈求,垂听他的祷告,使他归回耶路撒冷,仍坐国位。玛拿西这才知道惟独耶和华是神。

And prayed unto him: and he was intreated of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD he was God.

33:14 此后,玛拿西在大卫城外,从谷内基训西边直到鱼门口,建筑城墙,环绕俄斐勒,这墙筑得甚高。又在犹大各坚固城内设立勇敢的军长。

Now after this he built a wall without the city of David, on the west side of Gihon, in the valley, even to the entering in at the fish gate, and compassed about Ophel, and raised it up a very great height, and put captains of war in all the fenced cities of Judah.

33:15 并除掉外邦人的神像与耶和华殿中的偶像,又将他在耶和华殿的山上和耶路撒冷所筑的各坛都拆毁抛在城外。

And he took away the strange gods, and the idol out of the house of the LORD, and all the altars that he had built in the mount of the house of the LORD, and in Jerusalem, and cast them out of the city.

33:16 重修耶和华的祭坛,在坛上献平安祭,感谢祭,吩咐犹大人事奉耶和华以色列的神。

And he repaired the altar of the LORD, and sacrificed thereon peace offerings and thank offerings, and commanded Judah to serve the LORD God of Israel.

33:17 百姓却仍在邱坛上献祭,只献给耶和华他们的神。

Nevertheless the people did sacrifice still in the high places, yet unto the LORD their God only.

33:18 玛拿西其馀的事和祷告他神的话,并先见奉耶和华以色列神的名警戒他的言语,都写在以色列诸王记上。

Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, and his prayer unto his God, and the words of the seers that spake to him in the name of the LORD God of Israel, behold, they are written in the book of the kings of Israel.

33:19 他的祷告,与神怎样应允他,他未自卑以前的罪愆过犯,并在何处建筑邱坛,设立亚舍拉和雕刻的偶像,都写在何赛的书上。

His prayer also, and how God was intreated of him, and all his sins, and his trespass, and the places wherein he built high places, and set up groves and graven images, before he was humbled: behold, they are written among the sayings of the seers.

33:20 玛拿西与他列祖同睡,葬在自己的宫院里。他儿子亚们接续他作王。

So Manasseh slept with his fathers, and they buried him in his own house: and Amon his son reigned in his stead.

33:21 亚们登基的时候年二十二岁,在耶路撒冷作王二年。

Amon was two and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned two years in Jerusalem.

33:22 他行耶和华眼中看为恶的事,效法他父玛拿西所行的,祭祀事奉他父玛拿西所雕刻的偶像,

But he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, as did Manasseh his father: for Amon sacrificed unto all the carved images which Manasseh his father had made, and served them;

33:23 不在耶和华面前像他父玛拿西自卑。这亚们所犯的罪越犯越大。

And humbled not himself before the LORD, as Manasseh his father had humbled himself; but Amon trespassed more and more.

33:24 他的臣仆背叛,在宫里杀了他。

And his servants conspired against him, and slew him in his own house.

33:25 但国民杀了那些背叛亚们王的人,立他儿子约西亚接续他作王。

But the people of the land slew all them that had conspired against king Amon; and the people of the land made Josiah his son king in his stead.

历代志下33参考

“观兆”与“用法术”所指为何?
33:6 观兆(可译为“行法术的”)是使用从邪灵所得到的力量。用法术(译者注:也可译作“占卜”),是藉著兆头预测未来。

一国之君被视为罪犯,是因为他违背了神的心意,故此要谨慎神的警戒与提醒……
33:11 在公元前652和648年,巴比伦城背叛亚述,叛乱虽然被平定,但是亚述可能怀疑玛拿西支持叛乱,所以将玛拿西带到巴比伦,而不带到亚述的首都尼尼微去受审。

邪恶如玛拿西都悔悟归向神。我现在还不寻求神的赦免与拯救吗?
33:12-13 昏君的名单之中,玛拿西算是恶人之最。他一生尽行恶事,包括敬拜偶像、以他的儿女为祭献给偶像、污秽圣殿。不过,他后来认识了自己的罪,呼求神赦免,神也垂听了他的呼求。神既然能赦免玛拿西,他就必能赦免任何人。你是否有不堪负荷的犯罪的内疚?你是否怀疑自己的所作所为能否得赦?你尽可以放心──一生一世都可以相信,人人都能得到神的赦罪之恩。

要提防在敬拜中渗入了迷信色彩;我是否也常以中国人传统拜神的态度来敬拜真神?
33:17 犹大人虽然单单敬拜神,却用错误的方法。神曾经吩咐他们要在他所指定的地方献祭(参申12:13-14),好使他们不会改变敬拜的方式,保护他们免受异教习俗的危险影响。可惜,犹大人仍继续使用邱坛向神献祭,他们不知道:(1)所采用的习俗是神所反对的;(2)献祭的地方是神的律法所禁止的。他们将异教的信仰与敬拜神相混合,将异教的神只和独一的神混在一起,使人混淆不清。我们必须小心,不要让世俗的影响弄歪了我们敬拜的正道。
