34:1 耶和华的话临到我说,

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

34:2 人子阿,你要向以色列的牧人发预言,攻击他们,说,主耶和华如此说,祸哉。以色列的牧人只知牧养自己。牧人岂不当牧养群羊吗。

Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?

34:3 你们吃脂油,穿羊毛,宰肥壮的,却不牧养群羊。

Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.

34:4 瘦弱的,你们没有养壮。有病的,你们没有医治。受伤的,你们没有缠裹。被逐的,你们没有领回。失丧的,你们没有寻梢。但用强暴严严地辖制。

The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them.

34:5 因无牧人,羊就分散。既分散,便作了一切野兽的食物。

And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.

34:6 我的羊在诸山间,在各高冈上流离,在全地上分散,无人去寻,无人去找。

My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.

34:7 所以,你们这些牧人要听耶和华的话。

Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;

34:8 主耶和华说,我指着我的永生起誓,我的羊因无牧人就成为掠物,也作了一切野兽的食物。我的牧人不寻梢我的羊。这些牧人只知牧养自己,并不牧养我的羊。

As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock;

34:9 所以你们这些牧人要听耶和华的话。

Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;

34:10 主耶和华如此说,我必与牧人为敌,必向他们的手追讨我的羊,使他们不再牧放群羊。牧人也不再牧养自己。我必救我的羊脱离他们的口,不再作他们的食物。

Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.

34:11 主耶和华如此说,看哪,我必亲自寻梢我的羊,将它们寻见。

For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.

34:12 牧人在羊群四散的日子怎样寻梢他的羊,我必照样寻梢我的羊。这些羊在密云黑暗的日子散到各处,我必从那里救回它们来。

As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.

34:13 我必从万民中领出它们,从各国内聚集它们,引导它们归回故土,也必在以色列山上一切溪水旁边,境内一切可居之处牧养它们。

And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.

34:14 我必在美好的草场牧养它们。它们的圈必在以色列高处的山上,它们必在佳美之圈中躺卧,也在以色列山肥美的草场吃草。

I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.

34:15 主耶和华说,我必亲自作我羊的牧人,使它们得以躺卧。

I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD.

34:16 失丧的,我必寻梢。被逐的,我必领回。受伤的,我必缠裹。有病的,我必医治。只是肥的壮的,我必除灭,也要秉公牧养它们。

I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.

34:17 我的羊群哪,论到你们,主耶和华如此说,我必在羊与羊中间,公绵羊与公山羊中间施行判断。

And as for you, O my flock, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I judge between cattle and cattle, between the rams and the he goats.

34:18 你们这些肥壮的羊,在美好的草场吃草还以为小事吗。剩下的草,你们竟用蹄践踏了。你们喝清水,剩下的水,你们竟用蹄搅浑了。

Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good pasture, but ye must tread down with your feet the residue of your pastures? and to have drunk of the deep waters, but ye must foul the residue with your feet?

34:19 至于我的羊,只得吃你们所践踏的,喝你们所搅浑的。

And as for my flock, they eat that which ye have trodden with your feet; and they drink that which ye have fouled with your feet.

34:20 所以,主耶和华如此说,我必在肥羊和瘦羊中间施行判断。

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD unto them; Behold, I, even I, will judge between the fat cattle and between the lean cattle.

34:21 因为你们用胁用肩拥挤一切瘦弱的,又用角抵触,以致使它们四散。

Because ye have thrust with side and with shoulder, and pushed all the diseased with your horns, till ye have scattered them abroad;

34:22 所以,我必拯救我的群羊不再作掠物。我也必在羊和羊中间施行判断。

Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle.

34:23 我必立一牧人照管他们,牧养他们,就是我的仆人大卫。他必牧养他们,作他们的牧人。

And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.

34:24 我耶和华必作他们的神,我的仆人大卫必在他们中间作王。这是耶和华说的。

And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it.

34:25 我必与他们立平安的约,使恶兽从境内断绝,他们就必安居在旷野,躺卧在林中。

And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods.

34:26 我必使他们与我山的四围成为福源,我也必叫时雨落下,必有福如甘霖而降。

And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.

34:27 田野的树必结果,地也必有出产。他们必在故土安然居住。我折断他们所负的轭,救他们脱离那以他们为奴之人的手。那时,他们就知道我是耶和华。

And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am the LORD, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them.

34:28 他们必不再作外邦人的掠物,地上的野兽也不再吞吃他们。却要安然居住,无人惊吓。

And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid.

34:29 我必给他们兴起有名的植物。他们在境内不再为饥荒所灭,也不再受外邦人的羞辱,

And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more.

34:30 必知道我,耶和华他们的神是与他们同在的,并知道他们以色列家是我的民。这是主耶和华说的。

Thus shall they know that I the LORD their God am with them, and that they, even the house of Israel, are my people, saith the Lord GOD.

34:31 你们作我的羊,我草场上的羊,乃是以色列人,我也是你们的神。这是主耶和华说的。

And ye my flock, the flock of my pasture, are men, and I am your God, saith the Lord GOD.

以西结书34参考

谁是好牧人?谁是不称职的牧人?
34章 以西结把被掳的人称为“以色列”,说的是所有从南北两国掳来的犹太人。以西结批评以色列的领袖只顾自己不顾百姓,列举了他们的罪(34:1-6),并宣布了对他们的审判(34:7-10)。然后他应许说,那真牧人(弥赛亚)就要来临。真牧人要照顾群羊──百姓,这本来是领袖们该做的事(34:11-31)。这一美好的信息描绘了现有牧人的命运、新牧人的工作以及群羊的未来。

我这作领袖的,有没有使“群羊流离”?
34:4-6 神要审判宗教领袖,因为他们非常自私,只顾自己的利益,忽视对他人的服事。作属灵领袖的人必须要小心,不要以百姓“流离失所”为代价来追逐自我发展。当我们把太多的注意力放到自己的需要和主张上的时候,我们就把神放到了一边,而且将依靠我们的人弃置不顾。

教会领袖的职责是甚么?
34:9-10 没能照顾自己的羊的牧者将被革职,并要为他们的百姓所遭受的一切负责。基督徒的领袖必须留意这个警告,去照顾他们的羊,否则后果便是遭彻底的失败和审判(参林前9:24-27)。真正的领袖要把注意力放在帮助别人上面,而不是处处高人一等。

你对教会的牧者有何看法?是否感到失望?
34:11-16 神应许说自己要给失散的羊群作牧者。如果我们的领袖没能顾到我们,我们也不要失望。我们要记住,神在掌管一切。神已应许说要回来照顾自己的羊群,如此我们知道了可以向神求助。神仍然在掌权并能为其国度化悲剧为美事(参创50:20;罗8:28)。

在我们的教会中,有没有人在“搅浑水”?
34:18-20 一个坏牧人不仅自私,而且颇具毁坏性。一个传道人如果在犯罪,教导假见解,制造不必要的疑惑,他就是在搅浑水。这样的人是在破坏羊群的属灵营养。

“我的仆人大卫”代表的是──
34:23-25 同现有的邪恶牧者(领袖)形成对比的是(34:1-6),神将要差遣一位完美的牧者弥赛亚来(“我的仆人大卫”)。弥赛亚要照顾百姓的每一项需要,建立其完全公义和平的国度(参诗23;耶23:5-6;约10:11;来13:20-21;启21章)。和平在这里的意思不止于不出现纷争,它代表满足、成就和安全。
