David thought about building a temple for the Lord.

Then through the prophet Nathan the Lord told David:

" I will establish your dynasty for ever.
But it will be your son, not yourself,
who will build a temple for me."

and promised me so much?

May my House continue in your presence for ever.
May you bless my House forever."

Chapters 10, 11

The Ammonites went to war with the Israelites,
but David led the Israelites to victory.

During a further war with the Ammonites,
David stayed in Jerusalem and did not go to the battle.

While in Jerusalem, he made love to Bathsheba the wife of Uriah
who conceived and sent word to David, "I am with child."

David recalled Uriah to Jerusalem
and tried to get him to sleep with his wife.

But Uriah loyally observed the custom of the time
and refrained from marital relations since he was a soldier at war.

David then arranged for Uriah to be killed in battle
by having him stationed in a defenceless position.

After a time of mourning for Uriah,
Bathsheba became David's wife and bore him a son.

The Lord was displeased with David.

阿孟人以色列人交战,
达味带领以色列人取得胜利。

在进一步与阿孟人战争时,
达味留在耶路撒冷和没有参战。

当在耶路撒冷,他和乌黎雅的妻子巴特舍巴同房,她怀孕,於是打发人告诉达味说:
我怀了

达味乌黎雅回到耶路撒冷,并尝试让他与妻子同睡。

但是乌黎雅诚实地遵守当时的习俗
及避免夫妇间的交往,因为他是一名参战军人。

于是达味安排乌黎雅在战役中被杀,
让他驻守无防御的位置

過了乌黎雅的居喪期,巴特舍巴成为达味的妻子和给他生了一个儿子。

达味不满。

Dear God, help us not to displease you

亲爱的,帮助我们不使你生气

Chapter 12

The Lord sent the prophet Nathan to David.
Nathan said: "Why did you do what is displeasing to the Lord?"

David replied: "I have sinned against the Lord."

Nathan said: "The Lord forgives you, but because of your sin,
the child will die."

After the child died, Bathsheba conceived another son by David,
whom she named Solomon. The Lord specially blessed Solomon.

Chapter 13

David had many wives and concubines.
One of his sons, Amnon, fell in love with his step-sister Tamar
and raped her.

King David was very angry about this
but did not punish Amnon, since he loved him.
Amnon was his first-born son.

But another son, Absalom, Tamar's full brother,
hated Amnon and killed him.

Absalom fled for three years to another land.
All that time the king mourned for Amnon.


13

达味有很多妻子和妃嫔。
他的一个儿子阿默农,爱上他同父异母的妹妹塔玛尔,并强奸她。

达味对此非常愤怒,
可是没有处罚
阿默农,由于他爱他。
阿默农是他的长子。

但另一个儿子阿贝沙隆塔玛尔亲兄弟,仇恨阿默农并杀死他。

阿贝沙隆逃往别国三年。
那段时间君王一直哀悼阿默农

Dear Lord, please spare my family from conflict and strife

亲爱的,请让我的家人免于冲突和争斗

Chapters 14, 15

When David had finished his time of mourning for Amnon,
he allowed Absalom to return to Jerusalem.

Only after two years did David agree to meet Absalom.
He met him and pardoned him.

But as time went on Absalom started to plot against  David.
Absalom  gathered enough supporters to overthrow David.

David found out about the plot and fled from Jerusalem.

David was very sad and prayed to God
that someday he could return to Jerusalem.

1415

达味结束对阿默农悼念
他允许阿贝沙隆返回耶路撒冷

直到两年后,达味才同意见阿贝沙隆
他会见他和原谅他。

但是随着时间流逝,阿贝沙隆开始谋反达味
阿贝沙隆聚集足够的支持者推翻达味

达味得知这个阴谋,于是从耶路撒冷逃走。

达味非常哀伤和向祈求,
有一天他能够返回耶路撒冷

Dear God, please help  people who are exiled from their homes

亲爱的,请帮助从家园流亡的人

Chapters 16 - 24

When David was living in exile,
some people helped him, some people insulted him.

To insult his father and to claim the kingship
Absalom publicly had sex with his father's concubines.

Gradually David was able to re-build his army
and his army defeated Absalom's soldiers in battle.

In that battle, Absalom died
and David mourned his death for a long time.

Eventually David was able to become king of all Israel again.

16-24

达味过着流亡生活时,
一些人帮助他,一些人侮辱他。

要侮辱他的父亲和要求王位,
阿贝沙隆公开地跟他父亲的妃嫔性交。

逐渐地达味能重建他的军队,
并于战役中打败
阿贝沙隆的士兵。

在那场战役,阿贝沙隆死了,
达味哀悼
他的逝世一段很长时间

最终达味再次能成为全以色列的君王。

Dear God, may Israel be a land of peace

亲爱的,愿以色列是一块乐土
