The Second Book of the Kings
列王記下 第11章

11-1 Now when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed royal. さてアハジヤの母アタリヤはその子の死んだのを見て、立って王の一族をことごとく滅ぼしたが、
11-2 But Jehosheba, the daughter of king Joram, sister of Ahaziah, took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him away from among the king’s sons that were slain, even him and his nurse, and put them in the bedchamber; and they hid him from Athaliah, so that he was not slain; ヨラム王の娘で、アハジヤの姉妹であるエホシバはアハジヤの子ヨアシを、殺されようとしている王の子たちのうちから盗み取り、彼とそのうばとを寝室に入れて、アタリヤに隠したので、彼はついに殺されなかった。
11-3 And he was with her hid in the house of Jehovah six years. And Athaliah reigned over the land. ヨアシはうばと共に六年の間、主の宮に隠れていたが、その間アタリヤが国を治めた。
11-4 And in the seventh year Jehoiada sent and fetched the captains over hundreds of the Carites and of the guard, and brought them to him into the house of Jehovah; and he made a covenant with them, and took an oath of them in the house of Jehovah, and showed them the king’s son. 第七年になってエホヤダは人をつかわして、カリびとと近衛兵との大将たちを招きよせ、主の宮にいる自分のもとにこさせ、彼らと契約を結び、主の宮で彼らに誓いをさせて王の子を見せ、
11-5 And he commanded them, saying, This is the thing that ye shall do: a third part of you, that come in on the sabbath, shall be keepers of the watch of the king’s house; 命じて言った、「あなたがたのする事はこれです、すなわち、安息日に非番となって王の家を守るあなたがたの三分の一は、
11-6 And a third part shall be at the gate Sur; and a third part at the gate behind the guard: so shall ye keep the watch of the house, and be a barrier. 宮殿を守らなければならない。(他の三分の一はスルの門におり、三分の一は近衛兵のうしろの門におる)。
11-7 And the two companies of you, even all that go forth on the sabbath, shall keep the watch of the house of Jehovah about the king. すべて安息日に当番で主の宮を守るあなたがたの二つの部隊は、
11-8 And ye shall compass the king round about, every man with his weapons in his hand; and he that cometh within the ranks, let him be slain: and be ye with the king when he goeth out, and when he cometh in. おのおのの武器を手に取って王のまわりに立たなければならない。すべて列に近よる者は殺されなければならない。あなたがたは王が出る時にも、はいる時にも王と共にいなければならない」。
11-9 And the captains over hundreds did according to all that Jehoiada the priest commanded; and they took every man his men, those that were to come in on the sabbath, with those that were to go out on the sabbath, and came to Jehoiada the priest. そこでその大将たちは祭司エホヤダがすべて命じたとおりにおこなった。すなわち彼らはおのおの安息日に非番となる者と、安息日に当番となる者とを率いて祭司エホヤダのもとにきたので、
11-10 And the priest delivered to the captains over hundreds the spears and shields that had been king David’s, which were in the house of Jehovah. 祭司は主の宮にあるダビデ王のやりと盾を大将たちに渡した。
11-11 And the guard stood, every man with his weapons in his hand, from the right side of the house to the left side of the house, along by the altar and the house, by the king round about. 近衛兵はおのおの手に武器をとって主の宮の南側から北側まで、祭壇と宮を取り巻いて立った。
11-12 Then he brought out the king’s son, and put the crown upon him, and gave him the testimony; and they made him king, and anointed him; and they clapped their hands, and said, Long live the king. そこでエホヤダは王の子をつれ出して冠をいただかせ、律法の書を渡し、彼を王と宣言して油を注いだので、人々は手を打って「王万歳」と言った。
11-13 And when Athaliah heard the noise of the guard and of the people, she came to the people into the house of Jehovah: アタリヤは近衛兵と民の声を聞いて、主の宮に入り、民のところへ行って、
11-14 and she looked, and, behold, the king stood by the pillar, as the manner was, and the captains and the trumpets by the king; and all the people of the land rejoiced, and blew trumpets. Then Athaliah rent her clothes, and cried, Treason! treason! 見ると、王は慣例にしたがって柱のかたわらに立ち、王のかたわらには大将たちとラッパ手たちが立ち、また国の民は皆喜んでラッパを吹いていたので、アタリヤはその衣を裂いて、「反逆です、反逆です」と叫んだ。
11-15 And Jehoiada the priest commanded the captains of hundreds that were set over the host, and said unto them, Have her forth between the ranks; and him that followeth her slay with the sword. For the priest said, Let her not be slain in the house of Jehovah. その時祭司エホヤダは軍勢を指揮していた大将たちに命じて、「彼女を列の間をとおって出て行かせ、彼女に従う者をつるぎをもって殺しなさい」と言った。これは祭司がさきに「彼女を主の宮で殺してはならない」と言ったからである。
11-16 So they made way for her; and she went by the way of the horses’ entry to the king’s house: and there was she slain. そこで彼らは彼女を捕え、王の家の馬道へ連れて行ったが、彼女はついにそこで殺された。
11-17 And Jehoiada made a covenant between Jehovah and the king and the people, that they should be Jehovah’s people; between the king also and the people. かくてエホヤダは主と王および民との間に、皆主の民となるという契約を立てさせ、また王と民との間にもそれを立てさせた。
11-18 And all the people of the land went to the house of Baal, and brake it down; his altars and his images brake they in pieces thoroughly, and slew Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars. And the priest appointed officers over the house of Jehovah. そこで国の民は皆バアルの宮に行って、これをこわし、その祭壇とその像を打ち砕き、バアルの祭司マッタンをその祭壇の前で殺した。そして祭司は主の宮に管理人を置いた。
11-19 And he took the captains over hundreds, and the Carites, and the guard, and all the people of the land; and they brought down the king from the house of Jehovah, and came by the way of the gate of the guard unto the king’s house. And he sat on the throne of the kings. 次いでエホヤダは大将たちと、カリびとと、近衛兵と国のすべての民を率いて、主の宮から王を導き下り、近衛兵の門の道から王の家に入り、王の位に座せしめた。
11-20 So all the people of the land rejoiced, and the city was quiet. And Athaliah they had slain with the sword at the king’s house. こうして国の民は皆喜び、町はアタリヤが王の家でつるぎをもって殺されてのち、おだやかになった。
11-21 Jehoash was seven years old when he began to reign. ヨアシは位についた時七歳であった。
