11:1 灵将我举起,带到耶和华殿向东的东门。谁知,在门口有二十五个人,我见其中有民间的首领押朔的儿子雅撒尼亚和比拿雅的儿子毗拉提。

Moreover the spirit lifted me up, and brought me unto the east gate of the LORD’s house, which looketh eastward: and behold at the door of the gate five and twenty men; among whom I saw Jaazaniah the son of Azur, and Pelatiah the son of Benaiah, princes of the people.

11:2 耶和华对我说,人子阿,这就是图谋罪孽的人,在这城中给人设恶谋。

Then said he unto me, Son of man, these are the men that devise mischief, and give wicked counsel in this city:

11:3 他们说,盖房屋的时候尚未临近。这城是锅,我们是肉。

Which say, It is not near; let us build houses: this city is the caldron, and we be the flesh.

11:4 人子阿,因此你当说预言,说预言攻击他们。

Therefore prophesy against them, prophesy, O son of man.

11:5 耶和华的灵降在我身上,对我说,你当说,耶和华如此说,以色列家阿,你们口中所说的,心里所想的,我都知道。

And the Spirit of the LORD fell upon me, and said unto me, Speak; Thus saith the LORD; Thus have ye said, O house of Israel: for I know the things that come into your mind, every one of them.

11:6 你们在这城中杀人增多,使被杀的人充满街道。

Ye have multiplied your slain in this city, and ye have filled the streets thereof with the slain.

11:7 所以主耶和华如此说,你们杀在城中的人就是肉,这城就是锅。你们却要从其中被带出去。

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Your slain whom ye have laid in the midst of it, they are the flesh, and this city is the caldron: but I will bring you forth out of the midst of it.

11:8 你们怕刀剑,我必使刀剑临到你们。这是主耶和华说的。

Ye have feared the sword; and I will bring a sword upon you, saith the Lord GOD.

11:9 我必从这城中带出你们去,交在外邦人的手中,且要在你们中间施行审判。

And I will bring you out of the midst thereof, and deliver you into the hands of strangers, and will execute judgments among you.

11:10 你们必倒在刀下。我必在以色列的境界审判你们,你们就知道我是耶和华。

Ye shall fall by the sword; I will judge you in the border of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

11:11 这城必不作你们的锅,你们也不作其中的肉。我必在以色列的境界审判你们,

This city shall not be your caldron, neither shall ye be the flesh in the midst thereof; but I will judge you in the border of Israel:

11:12 你们就知道我是耶和华。因为你们没有遵行我的律例,也没有顺从我的典章,却随从你们四围列国的恶规。

And ye shall know that I am the LORD: for ye have not walked in my statutes, neither executed my judgments, but have done after the manners of the heathen that are round about you.

11:13 我正说预言的时候,比拿雅的儿子毗拉提死了。于是我俯伏在地,大声呼叫说,哎。主耶和华阿,你要将以色列剩下的人灭绝净尽吗。

And it came to pass, when I prophesied, that Pelatiah the son of Benaiah died. Then fell I down upon my face, and cried with a loud voice, and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt thou make a full end of the remnant of Israel?

11:14 耶和华的话临到我说,

Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

11:15 人子阿,耶路撒冷的居民对你的弟兄,你的本族,你的亲属,以色列全家,就是对大众说,你们远离耶和华吧。这地是赐给我们为业的。

Son of man, thy brethren, even thy brethren, the men of thy kindred, and all the house of Israel wholly, are they unto whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Get you far from the LORD: unto us is this land given in possession.

11:16 所以你当说,耶和华如此说,我虽将以色列全家远远迁移到列国中,将他们分散在列邦内,我还要在他们所到的列邦,暂作他们的圣所。

Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come.

11:17 你当说,主耶和华如此说,我必从万民中招聚你们,从分散的列国内聚集你们,又要将以色列地赐给你们。

Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.

11:18 他们必到那里,也必从其中除掉一切可憎可厌的物。

And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence.

11:19 我要使他们有合一的心,也要将新灵放在他们里面,又从他们肉体中除掉石心,赐给他们肉心,

And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:

11:20 使他们顺从我的律例,谨守遵行我的典章。他们要作我的子民,我要作他们的神。

That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

11:21 至于那些心中随从可憎可厌之物的,我必照他们所行的报应在他们头上。这是主耶和华说的。

But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith the Lord GOD.

11:22 于是,基路伯展开翅膀,轮子都在他们旁边。在他们以上有以色列神的荣耀。

Then did the cherubims lift up their wings, and the wheels beside them; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above.

11:23 耶和华的荣耀从城中上升,停在城东的那座山上。

And the glory of the LORD went up from the midst of the city, and stood upon the mountain which is on the east side of the city.

11:24 灵将我举起,在异象中藉着神的灵将我带进迦勒底地,到被掳的人那里。我所见的异象就离我上升去了。

Afterwards the spirit took me up, and brought me in a vision by the Spirit of God into Chaldea, to them of the captivity. So the vision that I had seen went up from me.

11:25 我便将耶和华所指示我的一切事都说给被掳的人听。

Then I spake unto them of the captivity all the things that the LORD had shewed me.

以西结书11参考

以色列的首领认为他们可以躲过灾祸;我常常也有这种侥幸心理……
11:1-4 神放弃了自己的祭坛和殿(9:11);神在其荣耀停在城东山上的时候,就进行了审判(11:23)。城门口是商人和政治家谈生意和讨论事情的地方,所以那二十五个人代表了该民族的统治阶层。他们自己是领袖,对百姓走入歧途要负责任。他们错误地认为,他们会逃过巴比伦的又一次攻击。“这城是锅,我们是肉”的意思是,他们相信自己是有影响力的、可免受一切伤害的精英。没有神同在的处境是绝不会稳定的。

人心里所想的一切,神全都知道,然而人为甚么总爱掩饰隐瞒?
11:5 以色列的一切,包括他们所说所想的,神都知道。神也知道我们的一切,包括我们极力想掩藏的罪。我们不要去注意人们怎么看我们和我们所做的事情,而要留心神怎么看我们,因为我们的一切,神都看得见。企图向神掩藏我们的思想和行为是愚蠢的。惟一有效对付罪的办法,就是认罪并求神帮助我们悔改。

今天信徒随从世俗最大的诱惑是甚么?为甚么常经提醒而不愿改正?
11:12 从以色列人进入应许之地开始,神就警告他们说,不要效法异教国家的风俗和宗教习惯,但他们不遵从命令,以外邦的习俗取代神的律法,结果招致惩罚。今天的信徒仍然受诱惑向世界看齐,所以我们必须接受神的是非标准,而不是在社会上随波逐流。

原来神不单是在圣殿,也在每一个愿意悔罪之人的身旁?
11:14-25 神应许流放在巴比伦的犹太人说,即使他们身不在耶路撒冷,他仍会继续与他们同在。这是犹太人最关心的事情,因为他们一直认为神主要出现在圣殿里。但神向他们保证说,不论他们身在何处,神都将继续作他们的主。在以西结那严厉的审判信息中,却有一丝盼望,这就是神的应许:要使为数不多的忠于神的人回到家园。神的膀臂正张开来迎接认罪悔改的人。

神并不按外观作判断,我对人与事的衡量是否与神的标准一致?
11:15-21 在以西结所传神的信息中充满了讽刺。神在这里说,被掳的犹大人是忠心的一群,而留在耶路撒冷的是有罪和邪恶的一群。这与人的观念正好相反。人的表面可以骗人,但神是以我们的信心和顺服来评估我们的生活,而不是按我们在地上看得见的“成功”。再进一步地说,我们不应该以貌判断人。

神让自己成为被掳子民的容身与复兴之所,他是否也是我的藏身处?我有没有把他看为藏身处?
11:16 神是存留下来的义人的圣所。拜偶像的人就是在耶路撒冷的殿中敬拜(11:15),也找不到真正的圣所。然而那些忠心的被掳者,虽身在他乡但还是会受到神的保护。同样,我们外在的情况并不能反映出我们同神真正的关系。那些看上去安全和得救的人也许离神很远,而那些经历了艰难困苦的人,得神在灵里的保护却有平安。我们若执意求神的照应,我们就能依靠神得到平安。

何处才可以得到一颗新心?怎样才可以重建合一的灵?
11:18-19 “合一的心”指的是每个人的目的都一致起来。神的百姓不再寻找假神时,他们将得神的欢心。那顽固不受感动的“石心”将被温柔、受教和有回应的肉心取代(参耶32:39;结18:31;36:26)。这新生活乃是圣灵工作的果效。我们必须认识到这是神的工作,并且脱离罪恶。当我们这样做的时候,神就给我们新的动机、新的指引和新的目的。我们领受这样一颗“新心”没有呢?

城东的橄榄山,是神的荣耀离开圣城后停留之处,直等到基督从此山再临……
11:23 神的荣耀离开耶路撒冷,站在了城东边的山上。这座山可以肯定是橄榄山。以西结书43章1至4节暗示说,神怎么去就怎么回来。当神回到地上的时候,他要建立一个完美的国度。
