One of Noah’s decendants was a man called Abram, who grew up in the city of Ur. He followed his father Terah and moved the family, including his wife Sarai and his nephew Lot, to Canaan, but on the way they settled in the city of Haran.
挪亞的後裔之中,有一位名叫亞伯蘭的男子,他生長於吾珥城。亞伯蘭跟隨父親他拉,將包括妻子撒萊與姪兒羅得等一家人遷徙到迦南地去,但途中他們卻居住到哈蘭城。

 

There, Abram and his wife Sarai enjoyed a life of great wealth.  When Abram was seventy-five years old, God said to him, “Leave your country, your people, and your father’s household. Go to the land of Canaan. There I will bless you and make you the father of a great nation.”
亞伯蘭跟他的妻子撒萊 在那裡過著富裕的生活。當亞伯蘭七十歲時,神告訴他:「你要離開本地、本族、父家,前去迦南地。我在那裡必賜福給你,叫你成為大國之父。」

 

Abram left just as God had told him because he had a great faith in God. He loaded all his possessions onto his camels and set out on the long journey with his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, and all their servants.
亞伯蘭對 神有極大的信心,便照著  神的吩咐去了。他將所有家當裝到駱駝背上,與妻子撒萊與姪兒羅得以及眾僕人展開長途旅行。 

 

When they reached Canaan, God appreared to Abram and said, “To your offspring, I will give this land.” Although Sarai had not been able to have any children, Abram believed that God’s promise would be carried out in the future.
當他們抵達迦南地之後, 神向亞伯蘭顯現並且說道:「我要將這地賜與你的後裔。」雖然撒萊未能生育,亞伯蘭確信神的旨意未來必定會實現。

 

Later, Abram moved to the place between Bethel and Ai.  However, the land could not support both Abram’s and Lot’s flocks and herds. It was proving difficult to find enough grazing pasture for all the animals. Abram’s shepherds started to fight Lot’s shepherds for each piece of grass.
亞伯蘭對後來輾轉遷徙到介於伯特力的地方。然而,那片土地容不下亞伯蘭羅得的牛群與羊群,很難找到足夠的青草來餵飽所有的牲畜。亞伯蘭的牧者便開始與羅得的牧者爭搶每一片草地。

 

Abram settled the dispute by saying to Lot, “We should split up and go our separate ways.” And he gave Lot first choice as to where he wanted to go. So Lot set off with his flocks for the fertile plain of the Jordan, while Abram stayed in Canaan.
亞伯蘭為了解決紛爭,便對羅得說:「我們必須分開,各走各的路。」他讓羅得先選擇要往哪裡去。羅得便將牲畜遷往肥沃的約旦河平原,而亞伯蘭便前往迦南地。

 

Afterwards, a war broke out. Lot and his possessions were carried off by the four kings involved in the war. One man escaped and reported this to Abram. When Abram heard that his nephew had been taken captive, he called out 318 trained men born in his houshold to rescue Lot.
後來,戰爭爆發,征戰的四王掠奪了羅得及其財物。有一個逃出來的人將這事告訴亞伯蘭亞伯蘭一聽見姪兒被人擄去,就抽調他家裡生養的精練壯丁三百一十八人去拯救羅得

 

When Abram returned, Melchizedek brought out wine and bread. He was priest of God Most High and he blessed Abram.
亞伯蘭回來之後,麥基洗德帶著酒和餅出來;他是至高 神的祭司,他賜福給亞伯蘭

 

After this, God blessed Abram by saying, “Do not be afraid. Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward. Look up at the heavens and count the stars. So shall your offspring be.”  Although Abram had no children, he believed in God, and God credited it to him as righteousness.
這些事以後,神祝福亞伯蘭,說道:「亞伯蘭,你不要懼怕,我是你的盾牌;你的賞賜是很大的。你向天觀看,數點眾星,你的後裔將要這樣眾多。」雖然亞伯蘭沒有子嗣,但他信  神,因此神就以此稱他為義。
