12:1 耶和华的话又临到我说,

The word of the LORD also came unto me, saying,

12:2 人子阿,你住在悖逆的家中。他们有眼睛看不见,有耳朵听不见,因为他们是悖逆之家。

Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.

12:3 所以人子阿,你要预备掳去使用的物件,在白日当他们眼前从你所住的地方移到别处去。他们虽是悖逆之家,或者可以揣摩思想。

Therefore, thou son of man, prepare thee stuff for removing, and remove by day in their sight; and thou shalt remove from thy place to another place in their sight: it may be they will consider, though they be a rebellious house.

12:4 你要在白日当他们眼前带出你的物件去,好像预备掳去使用的物件。到了晚上,你要在他们眼前亲自出去,像被掳的人出去一样。

Then shalt thou bring forth thy stuff by day in their sight, as stuff for removing: and thou shalt go forth at even in their sight, as they that go forth into captivity.

12:5 你要在他们眼前挖通了墙,从其中将物件带出去。

Dig thou through the wall in their sight, and carry out thereby.

12:6 到天黑时,你要当他们眼前搭在肩头上带出去,并要蒙住脸看不见地,因为我立你作以色列家的预兆。

In their sight shalt thou bear it upon thy shoulders, and carry it forth in the twilight: thou shalt cover thy face, that thou see not the ground: for I have set thee for a sign unto the house of Israel.

12:7 我就照着所吩咐的去行,白日带出我的物件,好像预备掳去使用的物件。到了晚上,我用手挖通了墙。天黑的时候,就当他们眼前搭在肩头上带出去。

And I did so as I was commanded: I brought forth my stuff by day, as stuff for captivity, and in the even I digged through the wall with mine hand; I brought it forth in the twilight, and I bare it upon my shoulder in their sight.

12:8 次日早晨,耶和华的话临到我说,

And in the morning came the word of the LORD unto me, saying,

12:9 人子阿,以色列家,就是那悖逆之家,岂不是问你说,你作什么呢。

Son of man, hath not the house of Israel, the rebellious house, said unto thee, What doest thou?

12:10 你要对他们说,主耶和华如此说,这是关乎耶路撒冷的君王和他周围以色列全家的预表(原文作担子)。

Say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; This burden concerneth the prince in Jerusalem, and all the house of Israel that are among them.

12:11 你要说,我作你们的预兆,我怎样行,他们所遭遇的也必怎样,他们必被掳去。

Say, I am your sign: like as I have done, so shall it be done unto them: they shall remove and go into captivity.

12:12 他们中间的君王也必在天黑的时候将物件搭在肩头上带出去。他们要挖通了墙,从其中带出去。他必蒙住脸,眼看不见地。

And the prince that is among them shall bear upon his shoulder in the twilight, and shall go forth: they shall dig through the wall to carry out thereby: he shall cover his face, that he see not the ground with his eyes.

12:13 我必将我的网撒在他身上,他必在我的网罗中缠住。我必带他到迦勒底人之地的巴比伦。他虽死在那里,却看不见那地。

My net also will I spread upon him, and he shall be taken in my snare: and I will bring him to Babylon to the land of the Chaldeans; yet shall he not see it, though he shall die there.

12:14 周围一切帮助他的和他所有的军队,我必分散四方(方原文作风),也要拔刀追赶他们。

And I will scatter toward every wind all that are about him to help him, and all his bands; and I will draw out the sword after them.

12:15 我将他们四散在列国,分散在列邦的时候,他们就知道我是耶和华。

And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall scatter them among the nations, and disperse them in the countries.

12:16 我却要留下他们几个人得免刀剑,饥荒,瘟疫,使他们在所到的各国中述说他们一切可憎的事,人就知道我是耶和华。

But I will leave a few men of them from the sword, from the famine, and from the pestilence; that they may declare all their abominations among the heathen whither they come; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

12:17 耶和华的话又临到我说,

Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

12:18 人子阿,你吃饭必胆战,喝水必惶惶忧虑。

Son of man, eat thy bread with quaking, and drink thy water with trembling and with carefulness;

12:19 你要对这地的百姓说,主耶和华论耶路撒冷和以色列地的居民如此说,他们吃饭必忧虑,喝水必惊惶。因其中居住的众人所行强暴的事,这地必然荒废,一无所存。

And say unto the people of the land, Thus saith the Lord GOD of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and of the land of Israel; They shall eat their bread with carefulness, and drink their water with astonishment, that her land may be desolate from all that is therein, because of the violence of all them that dwell therein.

12:20 有居民的城邑必变为荒场,地也必变为荒废。你们就知道我是耶和华。

And the cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and the land shall be desolate; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

12:21 耶和华的话临到我说,

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

12:22 人子阿,在你们以色列地怎吗有这俗语,说日子迟延,一切异象都落了空呢。

Son of man, what is that proverb that ye have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision faileth?

12:23 你要告诉他们说,主耶和华如此说,我必使这俗语止息,以色列中不再用这俗语。你却要对他们说,日子临近,一切的异象必都应验。

Tell them therefore, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will make this proverb to cease, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel; but say unto them, The days are at hand, and the effect of every vision.

12:24 从此,在以色列家中必不再有虚假的异象和奉承的占卜。

For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel.

12:25 我耶和华说话,所说的必定成就,不再耽延。你们这悖逆之家,我所说的话必趁你们在世的日子成就。这是主耶和华说的。

For I am the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord GOD.

12:26 耶和华的话又临到我说,

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

12:27 人子阿,以色列家的人说,他所见的异象是关乎后来许多的日子,所说的预言是指着极远的时候。

Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, The vision that he seeth is for many days to come, and he prophesieth of the times that are far off.

12:28 所以你要对他们说,主耶和华如此说,我的话没有一句再耽延的,我所说的必定成就。这是主耶和华说的。

Therefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, saith the Lord GOD.

以西结书12参考

先知扮演的是一出甚么内容的“哑剧”?
12章 以西结扮演的是被掳者的角色。这里所描绘的是将要发生在西底家王和耶路撒冷百姓身上的事情。被掳的人很清楚以西结在做些甚么,因为六年前他们被掳离开耶路撒冷到巴比伦的时候,也作了类似的准备。这是在向百姓说明,他们不应该信靠国王或首都来救他们脱离巴比伦军队,只有神能够救他们。希望早日回到家园的被掳者对此感到非常失望。以西结所展示的每处细节经证明都是对的。可是当他警告百姓的时候,许多人却拒绝听从。

当时作犹大王的是谁?论到他的结局──
12:10-12 西底家是犹大最后一个国王(公元前597-586年)。他在以西结奉神的旨意传达信息的时候在耶路撒冷作王。以西结告诉百姓要发生在西底家身上的事情:耶路撒冷要再度被攻,西底家要加入被掳至巴比伦的行列中。尼布甲尼撒要将西底家的双眼剜出来,使他瞎了(参王下25:3-7;耶52:10-11)。

“异象,预言……是指著极远的时候”,我是否也觉得如此呢?
12:21-28 这两个简短的信息警告百姓说,神所说的话很快就要应验!还有不到六年的时间,耶路撒冷就要遭到毁灭。但是人们仍在怀疑。不信和虚假的安全感使他们不相信这样的事会发生。使徒彼得在教会里也遇到了这类问题(参彼后3:9)。说基督不会再来,或者认为他的再来是在遥远的未来,与今天无关,都是很危险的事。神所说的一切话都必定发生。不要妄想自己有足够的时间跟神周旋。
