And at the dedication of the wall of Jerusalem they sought the Levites out of all their places, to bring them to Jerusalem, to keep the dedication with gladness, both with thanksgivings, and with singing, with cymbals, psalteries, and with harps.

And the sons of the singers gathered themselves together, both out of the plain country round about Jerusalem, and from the villages of Netophathi;

12:29 又从迦巴和押玛弗的田地聚集,因为歌唱的人在耶路撒冷四围为自己立了村庄。

Also from the house of Gilgal, and out of the fields of Geba and Azmaveth: for the singers had builded them villages round about Jerusalem.

12:30 祭司和利未人就洁净自己,也洁净百姓和城门,并城墙。

And the priests and the Levites purified themselves, and purified the people, and the gates, and the wall.

12:31 我带犹大的首领上城,使称谢的人分为两大队,排列而行。第一队在城上往右边向粪厂门行走。

Then I brought up the princes of Judah upon the wall, and appointed two great companies of them that gave thanks, whereof one went on the right hand upon the wall toward the dung gate:

12:32 在他们后头的有何沙雅,与犹大首领的一半。

And after them went Hoshaiah, and half of the princes of Judah,

12:33 又有亚撒利雅,以斯拉,米书兰,

And Azariah, Ezra, and Meshullam,

12:34 犹大,便雅悯,示玛雅,耶利米。

And certain of the priests’ sons with trumpets; namely, Zechariah the son of Jonathan, the son of Shemaiah, the son of Mattaniah, the son of Michaiah, the son of Zaccur, the son of Asaph:

12:36 又有撒迦利亚的弟兄示玛雅,亚撒利,米拉莱,基拉莱,玛艾,拿坦业,犹大,哈拿尼,都拿着神人大卫的乐器,文士以斯拉引领他们。

And his brethren, Shemaiah, and Azarael, Milalai, Gilalai, Maai, Nethaneel, and Judah, Hanani, with the musical instruments of David the man of God, and Ezra the scribe before them.

12:37 他们经过泉门往前,从大卫城的台阶随地势而上,在大卫宫殿以上,直行到朝东的水门。

And at the fountain gate, which was over against them, they went up by the stairs of the city of David, at the going up of the wall, above the house of David, even unto the water gate eastward.

12:38 第二队称谢的人,要与那一队相迎而行。我和民的一半跟随他们,在城墙上过了炉楼,直到宽墙。

And the other company of them that gave thanks went over against them, and I after them, and the half of the people upon the wall, from beyond the tower of the furnaces even unto the broad wall;

12:39 又过了以法莲门,古门,鱼门,哈楠业楼,哈米亚楼,直到羊门,就在护卫门站住。

And from above the gate of Ephraim, and above the old gate, and above the fish gate, and the tower of Hananeel, and the tower of Meah, even unto the sheep gate: and they stood still in the prison gate.

12:40 于是,这两队称谢的人连我,和官长的一半,站在神的殿里。

So stood the two companies of them that gave thanks in the house of God, and I, and the half of the rulers with me:

12:41 还有祭司以利亚金,玛西雅,米拿民,米该雅,以利约乃,撒迦利亚,哈楠尼亚吹号。

12:42 又有玛西雅,示玛雅,以利亚撒,乌西,约哈难,玛基雅,以拦,和以谢奏乐。歌唱的就大声歌唱,伊斯拉希雅管理他们。

And Maaseiah, and Shemaiah, and Eleazar, and Uzzi, and Jehohanan, and Malchijah, and Elam, and Ezer. And the singers sang loud, with Jezrahiah their overseer.

12:43 那日,众人献大祭而欢乐。因为神使他们大大欢乐,连妇女带孩童也都欢乐,甚至耶路撒冷中的欢声听到远处。

Also that day they offered great sacrifices, and rejoiced: for God had made them rejoice with great joy: the wives also and the children rejoiced: so that the joy of Jerusalem was heard even afar off.

12:44 当日,派人管理库房,将举祭,初熟之物,和所取的十分之一,就是按各城田地,照律法所定归给祭司和利未人的分,都收在里头。犹大人因祭司和利未人供职,就欢乐了。

And at that time were some appointed over the chambers for the treasures, for the offerings, for the firstfruits, and for the tithes, to gather into them out of the fields of the cities the portions of the law for the priests and Levites: for Judah rejoiced for the priests and for the Levites that waited.

12:45 祭司利未人遵守神所吩咐的,并守洁净的礼。歌唱的,守门的,照着大卫和他儿子所罗门的命令也如此行。

And both the singers and the porters kept the ward of their God, and the ward of the purification, according to the commandment of David, and of Solomon his son.

12:46 古时,在大卫和亚萨的日子,有歌唱的伶长,并有赞美称谢神的诗歌。

For in the days of David and Asaph of old there were chief of the singers, and songs of praise and thanksgiving unto God.

12:47 当所罗巴伯和尼希米的时候,以色列众人将歌唱的,守门的,每日所当得的分供给他们,又给利未人当得的分。利未人又给亚伦的子孙当得的分。

And all Israel in the days of Zerubbabel, and in the days of Nehemiah, gave the portions of the singers and the porters, every day his portion: and they sanctified holy things unto the Levites; and the Levites sanctified them unto the children of Aaron.

尼希米记12参考

吹号的传统始于何时?
12:35-36 祭司们使用的乐器从何而来?大卫在敬拜时加入音乐,他可能将乐器收藏在圣殿内。圣殿被毁时,尼布甲尼撒把殿内的文件带到巴比伦(参代下36:18),文件可能一直留在那里,直到以色列人回归,塞鲁士才将文物交还他们(参拉1:7-11)。

甚么样的人有资格管理信徒的奉献?你的教会情况如何?
12:44 为了支持圣殿的工作人员,尼希米设立了库房,确保妥善收发献的祭物和十分之一的奉献。库房必须有足够的面积,才能容纳百姓送来的谷物,可见管理库房是一项重大的任务。

以色列人为了甚么欢乐?你何时有过极大的欢乐?
12:44-47 以色列人欢喜快乐地用诗歌、赞美把城垣献上(12:24, 27-29, 35-36, 40-43)。尼希米多次忆述在敬拜时创立诗班的大卫。在大卫的年代,以色列是一个朝气勃勃、敬畏神的国家。回归的以色列人希望重建耶路撒冷,作为日后复国的中心。所以他们甘心将自己和耶路撒冷城献给神。
