(每日读经10/1) 以斯帖记 - Esther 9.1-19

9:1 十二月,就是亚达月,十三日,王的谕旨和法令将要执行;那是犹大人的仇敌盼望辖制他们,犹大人反倒辖制恨他们之人的日子,

Now in the twelfth month, which is the month Adar, on the thirteenth day of the month, when the king's commandment and his decree were about to be executed, on the day that the Jew's enemies hoped to rule over them (but it turned out to the contrary, so that the Jews had rule over them that hated them),

9:2 犹大人在亚哈随鲁王各省自己的城里聚集,下手击杀那些想要害他们的人。无人能抵挡他们,因为各族都惧怕他们。

The Jews assembled in their cities throughout all the provinces of King Ahasuerus to lay hand on those who sought their harm. And no one could withstand them, for the fear of them had fallen upon all the peoples.

9:3 各省的首领、总督、省长、和办理王事的人,因惧怕末底改,就都帮助犹大人。

And all the princes of the provinces and the satraps and the governors and those who did the king's business, helped the Jews, because the fear of Mordecai had fallen upon them.

9:4 末底改在朝中为大,名声传遍各省;末底改日渐昌大。

For Mordecai was great in the king's house, and his fame went forth throughout all the provinces; for the man Mordecai became greater and greater.

9:5 犹大人用刀击杀一切仇敌,杀戮灭绝,任意对待恨他们的人。

And the Jews struck all their enemies with the stroke of the sword and with slaughter and destruction, and they did as it pleased them to those who hated them.

9:6 在书珊京城,犹大人杀灭了五百人。

And in Susa the capital the Jews slew and destroyed five hundred men.

9:7 还有巴珊大他、达分、亚斯帕他、

And Parshandatha and Dalphon and Aspatha

9:8 破拉他、亚大利雅、亚利大他、

And Poratha and Adalia and Aridatha

9:9 帕玛斯他、亚利赛、亚利代、瓦耶撒他,

And Parmashta and Arisai and Aridai and Vaizatha,

9:10 这十人都是哈米大他的孙子,犹大人仇敌哈曼的儿子,犹大人也把他们杀了;但犹大人没有下手掠夺财物。

The ten sons of Haman the son of Hammedatha, the Jew's enemy, they slew; but they did not lay their hand on the spoil.

9:11 当日在书珊京城被杀的人数,呈到王面前。

On that day the number of those who were slain in Susa the capital was brought before the king.

9:12 王对王后以斯帖说,犹大人在书珊京城杀灭了五百人,又杀了哈曼的十个儿子;在王其余各省不知如何呢!现在你要什么?我必赐给你。你还求什么?也必为你成就。

And the king said to Esther the queen, The Jews have slain and destroyed five hundred men in Susa the capital as well as the ten sons of Haman. What then have they done in the rest of the king's provinces! Now what is your petition? And it shall be granted to you. Or what is your further request? And it shall be done.

9:13 以斯帖说,王若以为美,求你准书珊的犹大人,明日也照今日的法令行,并将哈曼十个儿子的尸首挂在木架上。

Then Esther said, If it please the king, let it be granted to the Jews who are in Susa to do tomorrow also according to this day's decree, and let Haman's ten sons be hanged upon the gallows.

9:14 王便下令如此行;法令在书珊颁布,人就把哈曼十个儿子的尸首挂了起来。

And the king commanded it to be so done; and a decree was issued in Susa, and they hanged Haman's ten sons.

9:15 亚达月十四日,书珊的犹大人又聚集,在书珊杀了三百人,但没有下手掠夺财物。

And the Jews who were in Susa assembled also on the fourteenth day of the month Adar and slew three hundred men in Susa, but they did not lay their hand on the spoil.

9:16 在王各省其余的犹大人也都聚集保护自己的性命,脱离仇敌,得享安息。他们杀了恨他们的人七万五千,但没有下手掠夺财物。

And the rest of the Jews who were in the king's provinces assembled and stood for their lives, and they had rest from their enemies. And they slew seventy-five thousand of those who hated them; but they did not lay their hand on the spoil.

9:17 这是在亚达月十三日的事;这月十四日他们享安息,并以这日为设筵欢乐的日子。

This happened on the thirteenth day of the month Adar; and on the fourteenth day of the same they rested and made it a day of feasting and rejoicing.

9:18 但书珊的犹大人,在十三日、十四日聚集杀戮仇敌;这月十五日才享安息,并以这日为设筵欢乐的日子。

But the Jews who were in Susa assembled on the thirteenth day of the month and on the fourteenth of the month; and on the fifteenth day of the same they rested and made it a day of feasting and rejoicing.

9:19 所以住在无城墙之村庄的犹大乡民,都定亚达月十四日为设筵欢乐的吉日,彼此馈送礼物。

Therefore the Jews of the villages, who dwell in towns in the open, make the fourteenth day of the month Adar a day of rejoicing and feasting, and a good day, and a day of sending portions to one another.
