35 Jacob Returns to Bethel

雅各回伯特利

1. Then God said to Jacob, "Go up to Bethel and settle there, and build an altar there to God, who appeared to you when you were fleeing from your brother Esau."

神对雅各说:“起来!上伯特利去,住在那里,要在那里筑一座坛给神,就是你逃避你哥哥以扫的时候向你显现的那位。”

2. So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, "Get rid of the foreign gods you have with you, and purify yourselves and change your clothes.

雅各就对他家中的人,并一切与他同在的人说:"你们要除掉你们中间的外邦神,也要自洁,更换衣裳。

3. Then come, let us go up to Bethel, where I will build an altar to God, who answered me in the day of my distress and who has been with me wherever I have gone."

我们要起来,上伯特利去,在那里我要筑一座坛给神,就是在我遭难的日子应允我的祷告,在我行的路上保佑我的那位。”

4. So they gave Jacob all the foreign gods they had and the rings in their ears, and Jacob buried them under the oak at Shechem.

他们就把外邦人的神像和他们耳朵上的环子交给雅各,雅各都藏在示剑那里的橡树底下。

5. Then they set out, and the terror of God fell upon the towns all around them so that no one pursued them.

他们便起行前往。神使那周围城邑的人都甚惊惧,就不追赶雅各的众子了。

6. Jacob and all the people with him came to Luz (that is, Bethel) in the land of Canaan.

于是,雅各和一切与他同在的人到了迦南地的路斯,就是伯特利。

7. There he built an altar, and he called the place El Bethel, because it was there that God revealed himself to him when he was fleeing from his brother.

他在那里筑了一座坛,就给那地方起名叫伊斯伯特利,因为他逃避他哥哥的时候,神在那里向他显现。

8. Now Deborah, Rebekah's nurse, died and was buried under the oak below Bethel. So it was named Allon Bacuth.

利百加的奶母底波拉死了,就葬在伯特利下边的橡树底下;那棵树名叫亚伦巴古。

9. After Jacob returned from Paddan Aram, God appeared to him again and blessed him.

雅各从巴旦亚兰回来,神又向他显现,赐福与他,

10. God said to him, "Your name is Jacob, but you will no longer be called Jacob; your name will be Israel. " So he named him Israel.

且对他说:“你的名原是雅各,从今以后不要再叫雅各,要叫以色列。”这样,他就改名叫以色列。

11. And God said to him, "I am God Almighty ; be fruitful and increase in number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will come from your body.

神又对他说:“我是全能的神,你要生养众多,将来有一族和多国的民从你而生,又有君王从你而出。

12. The land I gave to Abraham and Isaac I also give to you, and I will give this land to your descendants after you."

我所赐给亚伯拉罕和以撒的地,我要赐给你与你的后裔。”

13. Then God went up from him at the place where he had talked with him.

神就从那与雅各说话的地方升上去了。

14. Jacob set up a stone pillar at the place where God had talked with him, and he poured out a drink offering on it; he also poured oil on it.

雅各便在那里立了一根石柱,在柱子上祭酒,浇油。

15. Jacob called the place where God had talked with him Bethel.

雅各就给那地方起名叫伯特利。

The Deaths of Rachel and Isaac

拉结与以撒去世

16. Then they moved on from Bethel. While they were still some distance from Ephrath, Rachel began to give birth and had great difficulty.

他们从伯特利起行,离以法他还有一段路程,拉结临产甚是艰难。

17. And as she was having great difficulty in childbirth, the midwife said to her, "Don't be afraid, for you have another son."

正在艰难的时候,收生婆对她说:“不要怕,你又要得一个儿子了。”

18. As she breathed her last-for she was dying-she named her son Ben-Oni. But his father named him Benjamin.

她将近于死,灵魂要走的时候,就给她儿子起名叫便俄尼,他父亲却给他起名叫便雅悯。

19. So Rachel died and was buried on the way to Ephrath (that is, Bethlehem).

拉结死了,葬在以法他的路旁;以法他就是伯利恒。

20. Over her tomb Jacob set up a pillar, and to this day that pillar marks Rachel's tomb.

雅各在她的坟上立了一统碑,就是拉结的墓碑,到今日还在。

21. Israel moved on again and pitched his tent beyond Migdal Eder.

以色列起行前往,在以得台那边支搭帐篷。

22. While Israel was living in that region, Reuben went in and slept with his father's concubine Bilhah, and Israel heard of it. Jacob had twelve sons:

以色列住在那地的时候,吕便去与他父亲的妾辟拉同寝,以色列也听见了。雅各共有十二个儿子:

23. The sons of Leah: Reuben the firstborn of Jacob, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar and Zebulun.

27. Jacob came home to his father Isaac in Mamre, near Kiriath Arba (that is, Hebron), where Abraham and Isaac had stayed.

雅各来到他父亲以撒那里,到了基列亚巴的幔利,乃是亚伯拉罕和以撒寄居的地方;基列亚巴就是希伯伦。
