考古发现:耶路撒冷2700年前或已接纳犹太难民_英语新闻

Israeli archaeologists unveiled on Monday a 2,700-year-old clay seal impression which they said belonged to a biblical governor of Jerusalem.

周一,以色列考古学家宣布发现了一个2700年前的粘土印鉴,他们说这属于耶路撒冷的一个统治者。

The artifact, inscribed in an ancient Hebrew script as “belonging to the governor of the city”, was likely attached to a shipment or sent as a souvenir on behalf of the governor, the most prominent local position held in Jerusalem at the time, the Israel Antiquities Authority said.

以色列文物局称,该印章用古希伯来文刻着“属于该城市统治者”的文字,其很可能是作为代表统治者的一件纪念品运送或寄来的,该地区是当时耶路撒冷最著名的地方。

The impression, the size of a small coin, depicts two standing men, facing each other in a mirror-like manner and wearing striped garments reaching down to their knees. It was unearthed near the plaza of Judaism’s Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem.

印鉴约一枚硬币大小,上面刻有两个男人,身着及膝条纹长衫,面对面站立着,仿佛在照镜子。印鉴的发掘地点毗邻耶路撒冷古城内的犹太教叹息墙。

“It supports the Biblical rendering of the existence of a governor of the city in Jerusalem 2,700 years ago,” an Antiquities Authority statement quoted excavator Shlomit Weksler-Bdolah as saying.

一份古文物管理局的声明引用了发掘者Shlomit Weksler-Bdolah的说法:“它是圣经中关于2700年前存在耶路撒冷城市统治者的说法的有力证据。”

Governors of Jerusalem, appointed by the king, are mentioned twice in the Bible, and in 2 Chronicles, which mentions Masseiah in the post during the reign of Josiah.

圣经中两次提到耶路撒冷的管理者由国王任命,据历代记2记载,在Josiah统治下的 Masseiah位于这一位置。

The Antiquities Authority’s announcement came several weeks after U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, a decision that overturned a decades-old policy on the status of the city and stirred Palestinian protests and international concern.

在美国总统唐纳德特朗普承认耶路撒冷作为以色列首都后几周,古文物管理局宣布了这一发现。特朗普总统的决定推翻了几十年来有关耶路撒冷地位的政策,并引发了巴勒斯坦人的抗议和国际关注。
