士师记10 Judges

章:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21

10:1 亚比米勒以后,有以萨迦人朵多的孙子,普瓦的儿子陀拉兴起,拯救以色列人。他住在以法莲山地的沙密。

And after Abimelech there arose to defend Israel Tola the son of Puah, the son of Dodo, a man of Issachar; and he dwelt in Shamir in mount Ephraim.

10:2 陀拉作以色列的士师二十三年,就死了,葬在沙密。

And he judged Israel twenty and three years, and died, and was buried in Shamir.

10:3 在他以后有基列人睚珥兴起,作以色列的士师二十二年。

And after him arose Jair, a Gileadite, and judged Israel twenty and two years.

10:4 他有三十个儿子,骑着三十匹驴驹。他们有三十座城邑,叫作哈倭特睚珥,直到如今,都是在基列地。

And he had thirty sons that rode on thirty ass colts, and they had thirty cities, which are called Havothjair unto this day, which are in the land of Gilead.

10:5 睚珥死了,就葬在加们。

And Jair died, and was buried in Camon.

10:6 以色列人又行耶和华眼中看为恶的事,去事奉诸巴力和亚斯她录,并亚兰的神,西顿的神,摩押的神,亚扪人的神,非利士人的神,离弃耶和华,不事奉他

And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines, and forsook the LORD, and served not him.

10:7 耶和华的怒气向以色列人发作,就把他们交在非利士人和亚扪人的手中。

And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the children of Ammon.

10:8 从那年起,他们扰害欺压约旦河那边,住亚摩利人之基列地的以色列人,共有十八年。

And that year they vexed and oppressed the children of Israel: eighteen years, all the children of Israel that were on the other side Jordan in the land of the Amorites, which is in Gilead.

10:9 亚扪人又渡过约旦河去攻打犹大和便雅悯,并以法莲族。以色列人就甚觉窘迫。

Moreover the children of Ammon passed over Jordan to fight also against Judah, and against Benjamin, and against the house of Ephraim; so that Israel was sore distressed.

10:10 以色列人哀求耶和华说,我们得罪了你。因为离弃了我们神,去事奉诸巴力。

And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, saying, We have sinned against thee, both because we have forsaken our God, and also served Baalim.

10:11 耶和华对以色列人说,我岂没有救过你们脱离埃及人,亚摩利人,亚扪人,和非利士人吗。

And the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Did not I deliver you from the Egyptians, and from the Amorites, from the children of Ammon, and from the Philistines?

10:12 西顿人,亚玛力人,马云人也都欺压你们。你们哀求我,我也拯救你们脱离他们的手。

The Zidonians also, and the Amalekites, and the Maonites, did oppress you; and ye cried to me, and I delivered you out of their hand.

10:13 你们竟离弃我,事奉别神。所以我不再救你们了。

Yet ye have forsaken me, and served other gods: wherefore I will deliver you no more.

10:14 你们去哀求所选择的神。你们遭遇急难的时候,让他救你们吧。

Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.

10:15 以色列人对耶和华说,我们犯罪了,任凭你随意待我们吧。只求你今日拯救我们。

And the children of Israel said unto the LORD, We have sinned: do thou unto us whatsoever seemeth good unto thee; deliver us only, we pray thee, this day.

10:16 以色列人就除掉他们中间的外邦神,事奉耶和华。耶和华因以色列人受的苦难,就心中担忧。

And they put away the strange gods from among them, and served the LORD: and his soul was grieved for the misery of Israel.

10:17 当时亚扪人聚集,安营在基列。以色列人也聚集,安营在米斯巴。

Then the children of Ammon were gathered together, and encamped in Gilead. And the children of Israel assembled themselves together, and encamped in Mizpeh.

10:18 基列的民和众首领彼此商议说,谁能先去攻打亚扪人,谁必作基列一切居民的领袖。

And the people and princes of Gilead said one to another, What man is he that will begin to fight against the children of Ammon? he shall be head over all the inhabitants of Gilead.

士师记10参考

短短几节经文中,介绍了两位士师……
10:1-5 从这五节经文中,我们看到两位士师,共治理以色列人四十五年。对他们的生平,除了在任的时间以外,只知其中的一位有三十个儿子,骑三十匹驴驹。在你一生之中,有甚么是你为神所做的,有甚么是没有价值的呢?你一生过去后,别人对你的纪念,是否只在于你有多少财产,或是你活了多少年呢?

这里所指的都是些甚么假神?
10:6 诸巴力与亚斯她录都是假神(参2:11-15与3:7的注释)。亚兰人与西顿人的神非常相似。摩押人与亚扪人的神是基抹与摩洛。非利士人的神是大衮、亚施她录、亚舍拉与巴力西卜。

日子一好过就离弃神,难道以色列人注定要受苦吗?我们对神的态度与他们的也差不多吧……
10:9-10 以色列人又受到外族多年的压迫,才离弃他们的罪,求神帮助(参4:1-3;6:1-7)。请注意他们到达计穷力竭之时,才不再指望异教之神来帮助,转而仰望真正能帮助他们的独一真神。
  神是不是你的最后倚靠?我们常受到许多冤枉痛苦,全因为不早早地求告神,直到用尽其他方法以后才求他。与其等事态变得不可收拾,不如首先求告神。他有你所需要的聪明与能力,足以解决一切困难。

你有没有处于反判时期的儿女?你可由此体验被拒绝的滋味……
10:11-16 这几节说明以色列人偏离神极远,要顺服他真的很难。在凡事顺利时人们常常会忘记神。尽管神常常被他自己的百姓弃绝,但在他们悔改呼求的时候,他从来没有不去拯救。我们行事正像以色列人,将神放在日常事务以外,而不放在生活中心。父母在儿女悖逆的时候,怎样感到被弃绝,我们不理或忽略神的时候,他也会更加感到被弃绝(参撒上8:4-9;约12:44-50)。我们应当竭力保持与神亲近,别再自行其是,以为审判不会来临。

亚扪人的来历颇为不光彩……
10:17-18 亚扪人的势力,在以色列人的士师时代已达到高峰。罗得的女儿用酒把父亲灌醉后,与他乱伦怀孕生下亚扪,这孩子的后裔就是亚扪人(参创19:3-0-38)。亚扪位于耶路撒冷以东的约旦河对面。在他们以南有摩押地,那是罗得酒醉以后,另一个女儿与他乱伦所生之子摩押的后裔。摩押常与亚扪结盟。要打败这两族,是项艰巨的任务。
