16:1 耶和华的话又临到我说,

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

16:2 人子阿,你要使耶路撒冷知道她那些可憎的事,

Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations,

16:3 说主耶和华对耶路撒冷如此说,你根本,你出世,是在迦南地。你父亲是亚摩利人,你母亲是赫人。

And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite.

16:4 论到你出世的景况,在你初生的日子没有为你断脐带,也没有用水洗你,使你洁净,丝毫没有撒盐在你身上,也没有用布裹你。

And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all.

16:5 谁的眼也不可怜你,为你作一件这样的事怜恤你。但你初生的日子扔在田野,是因你被厌恶。

None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born.

16:6 我从你旁边经过,见你滚在血中,就对你说,你虽在血中,仍可存活。你虽在血中,仍可存活。

And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.

16:7 我使你生长好像田间所长的,你就渐渐长大,以致极其俊美,两乳成形,头发长成,你却仍然赤身露体。

I have caused thee to multiply as the bud of the field, and thou hast increased and waxen great, and thou art come to excellent ornaments: thy breasts are fashioned, and thine hair is grown, whereas thou wast naked and bare.

16:8 我从你旁边经过,看见你的时候正动爱情,便用衣襟搭在你身上,遮盖你的赤体。又向你起誓,与你结盟,你就归于我。这是主耶和华说的。

Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine.

16:9 那时我用水洗你,洗净你身上的血,又用油抹你。

Then washed I thee with water; yea, I throughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil.

16:10 我也使你身穿绣花衣服,脚穿海狗皮鞋,并用细麻布给你束腰,用丝绸为衣披在你身上,

I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers’ skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk.

16:11 又用妆饰打扮你,将镯子戴在你手上,将金链戴在你项上。

I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands, and a chain on thy neck.

16:12 我也将环子戴在你鼻子上,将耳环戴在你耳朵上,将华冠戴在你头上。

And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head.

16:13 这样,你就有金银的妆饰,穿的是细麻衣和丝绸,并绣花衣。吃的是细面,蜂蜜,并油。你也极其美貌,发达到王后的尊荣。

Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom.

16:14 你美貌的名声传在列邦中,你十分美貌,是因我加在你身上的威荣。这是主耶和华说的。

And thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord GOD.

16:15 只是你仗着自己的美貌,又因你的名声就行邪淫。你纵情淫乱,使过路的任意而行。

But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was.

16:16 你用衣服为自己在高处结彩,在其上行邪淫。这样的事将来必没有,也必不再行了。

And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places with divers colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.

16:17 你又将我所给你那华美的金银,宝器为自己制造人像,与他行邪淫。

Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them,

16:18 又用你的绣花衣服给他披上,并将我的膏油和香料摆在他跟前。

And tookest thy broidered garments, and coveredst them: and thou hast set mine oil and mine incense before them.

16:19 又将我赐给你的食物,就是我赐给你吃的细面,油,和蜂蜜,都摆在他跟前为馨香的供物。这是主耶和华说的。

My meat also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou hast even set it before them for a sweet savour: and thus it was, saith the Lord GOD.

16:20 并且你将给我所生的儿女焚献给他。

Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter,

16:21 你行淫乱岂是小事,竟将我的儿女杀了,使他们经火归与他吗。

That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them?

16:22 你行这一切可憎和淫乱的事,并未追念你幼年赤身露体滚在血中的日子。

And in all thine abominations and thy whoredoms thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, when thou wast naked and bare, and wast polluted in thy blood.

16:23 你行这一切恶事之后(主耶和华说,你有祸了。有祸了。)

And it came to pass after all thy wickedness, (woe, woe unto thee! saith the LORD GOD;)

16:24 又为自己建造圆顶花楼,在各街上作了高台。

That thou hast also built unto thee an eminent place, and hast made thee an high place in every street.

16:25 你在一切市口上建造高台,使你的美貌变为可憎的,又与一切过路的多行淫乱。

Thou hast built thy high place at every head of the way, and hast made thy beauty to be abhorred, and hast opened thy feet to every one that passed by, and multiplied thy whoredoms.

16:26 你也和你邻邦放纵情欲的埃及人行淫,加增你的淫乱,惹我发怒。

Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased thy whoredoms, to provoke me to anger.

16:27 因此我伸手攻击你,减少你应用的粮食,又将你交给恨你的非利士众女(众女是城邑的意思本章下同),使她们任意待你。她们见你的淫行,为你羞耻。

Behold, therefore I have stretched out my hand over thee, and have diminished thine ordinary food, and delivered thee unto the will of them that hate thee, the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of thy lewd way.

16:28 你因贪色无厌,又与亚述人行淫,与他们行淫之后,仍不满意,

Thou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because thou wast unsatiable; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied.

16:29 并且多行淫乱,直到那贸易之地,就是迦勒底,你仍不满意。

Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied herewith.

16:30 主耶和华说,你行这一切事,都是不知羞耻妓女所行的,可见你的心是何等懦弱。

How weak is thine heart, saith the LORD GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman;

16:31 因你在一切市口上建造圆顶花楼,在各街上作了高台,你却藐视赏赐,不像妓女。

In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire;

16:32 哎。你这行淫的妻阿,宁肯接外人,不接丈夫。

But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!

16:33 凡妓女是得人赠送,你反倒赠送你所爱的人,贿赂他们从四围来与你行淫。

They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom.

16:34 你行淫与别的妇女相反,因为不是人从你行淫。你既赠送人,人并不赠送你。所以你与别的妇女相反。

And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary.

16:35 你这妓女阿,要听耶和华的话。

Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD:

16:36 主耶和华如此说,因你的污秽倾泄了,你与你所爱的行淫露出下体,又因你拜一切可憎的偶像,流儿女的血献给他,

Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them;

16:37 我就要将你一切相欢相爱的和你一切所恨的都聚集来,从四围攻击你。又将你的下体露出,使他们看尽了。

Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness.

16:38 我也要审判你,好像官长审判淫妇和流人血的妇女一样。我因忿怒忌恨,使流血的罪归到你身上。

And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.

16:39 我又要将你交在他们手中。他们必拆毁你的圆顶花楼,毁坏你的高台,剥去你的衣服,夺取你的华美宝器,留下你赤身露体。

And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high places: they shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and leave thee naked and bare.

16:40 他们也必带多人来攻击你,用石头打死你,用刀剑刺透你,

They shall also bring up a company against thee, and they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords.

16:41 用火焚烧你的房屋,在许多妇人眼前向你施行审判。我必使你不再行淫,也不再赠送与人。

And they shall burn thine houses with fire, and execute judgments upon thee in the sight of many women: and I will cause thee to cease from playing the harlot, and thou also shalt give no hire any more.

16:42 这样,我就止息向你发的忿怒,我的忌恨也要离开你,我要安静不再恼怒。

So will I make my fury toward thee to rest, and my jealousy shall depart from thee, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry.

16:43 因你不追念你幼年的日子,在这一切的事上向我发烈怒,所以我必照你所行的报应在你头上,你就不再贪淫,行那一切可憎的事。这是主耶和华说的。

Because thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, but hast fretted me in all these things; behold, therefore I also will recompense thy way upon thine head, saith the Lord GOD: and thou shalt not commit this lewdness above all thine abominations.

16:44 凡说俗语的必用俗语攻击你,说,母亲怎样,女儿也怎样。

Behold, every one that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against thee, saying, As is the mother, so is her daughter.

16:45 你正是你母亲的女儿,厌弃丈夫和儿女。你正是你姊妹的姊妹,厌弃丈夫和儿女。你母亲是赫人,你父亲是亚摩利人。

Thou art thy mother’s daughter, that lotheth her husband and her children; and thou art the sister of thy sisters, which lothed their husbands and their children: your mother was an Hittite, and your father an Amorite.

16:46 你的姊姊是撒马利亚,她和她的众女住在你左边。你的妹妹是所多玛,她和她的众女住在你右边。

And thine elder sister is Samaria, she and her daughters that dwell at thy left hand: and thy younger sister, that dwelleth at thy right hand, is Sodom and her daughters.

16:47 你没有效法她们的行为,也没有照她们可憎的事去作,你以那为小事,你一切所行的倒比她们更坏。

Yet hast thou not walked after their ways, nor done after their abominations: but, as if that were a very little thing, thou wast corrupted more than they in all thy ways.

16:48 主耶和华说,我指着我的永生起誓,你妹妹所多玛与她的众女尚未行你和你众女所行的事。

As I live, saith the Lord GOD, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters.

16:49 看哪,你妹妹所多玛的罪孽是这样,她和她的众女都心骄气傲,粮食饱足,大享安逸,并没有扶助困苦和穷乏人的手。

Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.

16:50 她们狂傲,在我面前行可憎的事,我看见便将她们除掉。

And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.

16:51 撒马利亚没有犯你一半的罪,你行可憎的事比她更多,使你的姊妹因你所行一切可憎的事,倒显为义。

Neither hath Samaria committed half of thy sins; but thou hast multiplied thine abominations more than they, and hast justified thy sisters in all thine abominations which thou hast done.

16:52 你既断定你姊妹为义(为义或作当受羞辱),就要担当自己的羞辱。因你所犯的罪比她们更为可憎,她们就比你更显为义。你既使你的姊妹显为义,你就要抱愧担当自己的羞辱。

Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame for thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast justified thy sisters.

16:53 我必叫她们被掳的归回,就是叫所多玛和她的众女,撒马利亚和她的众女,并你们中间被掳的,都要归回,

When I shall bring again their captivity, the captivity of Sodom and her daughters, and the captivity of Samaria and her daughters, then will I bring again the captivity of thy captives in the midst of them:

16:54 好使你担当自己的羞辱,并因你一切所行的使她们得安慰,你就抱愧。

That thou mayest bear thine own shame, and mayest be confounded in all that thou hast done, in that thou art a comfort unto them.

16:55 你的妹妹所多玛和她的众女必归回原位。撒马利亚和她的众女,你和你的众女,也必归回原位。

When thy sisters, Sodom and her daughters, shall return to their former estate, and Samaria and her daughters shall return to their former estate, then thou and thy daughters shall return to your former estate.

16:56 *

For thy sister Sodom was not mentioned by thy mouth in the day of thy pride,

16:57 在你骄傲的日子,你的恶行没有显露以先,你的口就不提你的妹妹所多玛。那受了凌辱的亚兰众女和亚兰四围非利士的众女都恨恶你,藐视你。

Before thy wickedness was discovered, as at the time of thy reproach of the daughters of Syria, and all that are round about her, the daughters of the Philistines, which despise thee round about.

16:58 耶和华说,你贪淫和可憎的事,你已经担当了。

Thou hast borne thy lewdness and thine abominations, saith the LORD.

16:59 主耶和华如此说,你这轻看誓言,背弃盟约的,我必照你所行的待你。

For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even deal with thee as thou hast done, which hast despised the oath in breaking the covenant.

16:60 然而我要追念在你幼年时与你所立的约,也要与你立定永约。

Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant.

16:61 你接待你姊姊和你妹妹的时候,你要追念你所行的,自觉惭愧。并且我要将她们赐你为女儿,却不是按着前约。

Then thou shalt remember thy ways, and be ashamed, when thou shalt receive thy sisters, thine elder and thy younger: and I will give them unto thee for daughters, but not by thy covenant.

16:62 我要坚定与你所立的约(你就知道我是耶和华),

And I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD:

16:63 好使你在我赦免你一切所行的时候,心里追念,自觉抱愧,又因你的羞辱就不再开口。这是主耶和华说的。

That thou mayest remember, and be confounded, and never open thy mouth any more because of thy shame, when I am pacified toward thee for all that thou hast done, saith the Lord GOD.

以西结书16参考

生我者父母,养育我的是神,我有否辜负他的养育之恩?
16章 这信息提醒耶路撒冷她以前在迦南国家中受蔑视的处境。神以婴孩成长为成熟女性的形像来提醒耶路撒冷:是神把她从卑微的境地养大成人,并获得给神作新娘的极大荣耀。可她辜负了神的信任,而向异教国家献媚行淫,学效他们的习俗。如果我们也把神推在一旁,而去追求其他东西,哪怕是教育、家庭和享乐的话,我们就是在以同样方式背弃神。

耶路撒冷的前身是──
16:3 迦南是这地方的古名,被以色列的子孙沿用了。圣经常常使用这个名字来指该地区败坏的异教国家。亚摩利人和赫人是迦南地区以邪恶闻名的两大民族。但神在这里所暗指的是,神的百姓并不比迦南人好多少。

我有没有像以色列人那样,觉得自己翅膀硬了,就……
16:15 神对犹大的关照和爱护,就是让他们脱离其他的国家和他们的假神。现在这个民族已经成熟了,有了名气,但他却忘记是谁赐给自己生命的(16:22)。这就叫灵命上的淫乱(即所谓叛教,离开了那惟一的真神)。当我们变得成熟和有知识的时候,我们不要背离那位真正爱我们的神。

以色列人也用儿童献祭,实在是邪恶之极……
16:20-21 在以色列人占领迦南之前,迦南人就一直用儿童献祭,但这是神严厉禁止的(参利20:1-3)。在以西结的时代,人们公开以自己的孩子献祭(参王下16:3;21:6)。耶利米也证实这是一个普遍的习俗(参耶 7:31;32:35)。连神的百姓和祭司中都有这邪恶的行为,圣殿显然已不适合神居住了。当神离开圣殿的时候,神就不再是犹大的指导和保护了。

犹大拜偶像已到无以复加的地步,你看──
16:27 犹大的行为那么淫荡,以至于那些敬拜别神的人,包括以色列最大的敌人非利士人都为这种行为感到羞耻,犹大人在行恶方面远超过了他们。

明知故犯,比无知犯罪更加邪恶,这对我有何提醒?
16:44-52 所多玛城是个完全腐败的象徵。它因邪恶被神彻底毁灭(参创19:24-25)。撒马利亚是原来北国的首都,遭到了南国犹大人的蔑视和□制。被称为撒马利亚和所多玛的姐妹已够坏的了,若被称为更加堕落则意味著犹大的罪恶已罄竹难书,难逃毁灭了。认为犹大更坏的原因并不一定是犹大恶行更甚,而是因为犹大知道得更多,却仍明知故犯。同样,在我们生活的时代,神的信息已经通过圣经向我们表明了,如果我们继续犯罪,那我们就比犹大更坏(参11:20-24)。

我又没有犯甚么重罪,问题不大吧……
16:49 审判和谴责所多玛特别是她那可怕的性犯罪,是一件很容易的事。以西结是在提醒犹大:所多玛被毁是因为她百姓的高傲,饱食终日,对需要帮助的穷人漠不关心。表面上的罪我们容易避免,例如我们可能不会犯像淫乱、同性恋、偷窃和谋杀这样可怕的罪,但我们□可能因过上了富足的生活,就犯像高傲、贪食和对有需要的人漠不关心这样的罪。这些罪也许不会使我们感到有多严重,但它们同样是神所憎恶的罪。

没有不被神赦免的罪和人,但条件是……
16:59-63 百姓没有信守他们的承诺,所以甚么都不配,只配受惩罚。神却不会因此撤回自己对他们的应许。如果百姓回头,神就会再次赦免他们,并且更新同他们的约。这个约在耶稣为全人类付赎价死在十字架上的时候开始生效(参来10:8-10)。没有一个人是神不会赦免的。我们虽然甚么都不配,只配受对罪的惩罚,但神的膀臂能触到我们。在我们悔改和向神归回的时候,神绝不会失言而不拯救、不赦免我们。
