(每日读经 3/13) 民数记 - Numbers 21.1-9

21:1 住南地的迦南人亚拉得王,听说以色列人从亚他林路来,就和以色列人争战,掳了他们几个人。

And when the Canaanite, the king of Arad, who dwelt in the Negev, heard that Israel was coming by the way of Atharim, he fought against Israel and took some of them captive.

21:2 以色列人向耶和华许愿说,你若将这民交付我们手里,我们就要把他们的城邑尽行毁灭。

And Israel made a vow to Jehovah and said, If You will indeed deliver this people into my hand, then I will utterly destroy their cities.

21:3 耶和华听了以色列人的呼声,把迦南人交付他们,他们就把迦南人和迦南人的城邑尽行毁灭。那地方的名便叫何珥玛。

And Jehovah listened to the voice of Israel and delivered up the Canaanites, and they utterly destroyed them and their cities. Thus the name of the place was called Hormah.

21:4 他们从何珥山起行,沿着通往红海的路走,要绕过以东地。百姓在这路上,心中烦躁,

Then they journeyed from Mount Hor by the way to the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom; and the people became impatient on the way.

21:5 就毁谤神和摩西说,你们为什么把我们从埃及领上来,使我们死在旷野?这里没有粮,没有水,我们的心厌恶这淡薄的食物。

And the people spoke against God and against Moses, Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and there is no water; and our soul loathes this light bread.

21:6 于是耶和华打发火蛇进入百姓中间,蛇就咬他们,以致以色列中死了许多人。

Then Jehovah sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died.

21:7 百姓到摩西那里,说,我们有罪了,因为我们毁谤了耶和华和你;求你向耶和华祷告,叫这些蛇离开我们。于是摩西为百姓祷告。

And the people came to Moses and said, We have sinned, because we have spoken against Jehovah and against you; pray to Jehovah, that He may take away the serpents from us. So Moses prayed for the people.

21:8 耶和华对摩西说,你制造一条火蛇,挂在杆上;凡被咬的,一看这蛇,就必得活。

Then Jehovah said to Moses, Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and everyone who is bitten, when he sees it, shall live.

21:9 摩西便制造一条铜蛇,挂在杆上;蛇若咬了什么人,那人一望这铜蛇就活了。

And Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on the pole; and if a serpent had bitten any man, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.
