6:1 耶和华的话临到我说,

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

6:2 人子阿,你要面向以色列的众山说预言,

Son of man, set thy face toward the mountains of Israel, and prophesy against them,

6:3 说,以色列的众山哪,要听主耶和华的话。主耶和华对大山,小冈,水沟,山谷如此说,我必使刀剑临到你们,也必毁灭你们的邱坛。

And say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord GOD; Thus saith the Lord GOD to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys; Behold, I, even I, will bring a sword upon you, and I will destroy your high places.

6:4 你们的祭坛必然荒凉,你们的日像必被打碎。我要使你们被杀的人倒在你们的偶像面前。

And your altars shall be desolate, and your images shall be broken: and I will cast down your slain men before your idols.

6:5 我也要将以色列人的尸首放在他们的偶像面前,将你们的骸骨抛散在你们祭坛的四围。

And I will lay the dead carcases of the children of Israel before their idols; and I will scatter your bones round about your altars.

6:6 在你们一切的住处,城邑要变为荒场,邱坛必然凄凉,使你们的祭坛荒废,将你们的偶像打碎。你们的日像被砍倒,你们的工作被毁灭。

In all your dwellingplaces the cities shall be laid waste, and the high places shall be desolate; that your altars may be laid waste and made desolate, and your idols may be broken and cease, and your images may be cut down, and your works may be abolished.

6:7 被杀的人必倒在你们中间,你们就知道我是耶和华。

And the slain shall fall in the midst of you, and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

6:8 你们分散在各国的时候,我必在列邦中使你们有剩下脱离刀剑的人。

Yet will I leave a remnant, that ye may have some that shall escape the sword among the nations, when ye shall be scattered through the countries.

6:9 那脱离刀剑的人必在所掳到的各国中记念我,为他们心中何等伤破,是因他们起淫心,远离我,眼对偶像行邪淫。他们因行一切可憎的恶事,必厌恶自己。

And they that escape of you shall remember me among the nations whither they shall be carried captives, because I am broken with their whorish heart, which hath departed from me, and with their eyes, which go a whoring after their idols: and they shall lothe themselves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations.

6:10 他们必知道我是耶和华。我说要使这灾祸临到他们身上,并非空话。

And they shall know that I am the LORD, and that I have not said in vain that I would do this evil unto them.

6:11 主耶和华如此说,你当拍手顿足,说,哀哉。以色列家行这一切可憎的恶事,他们必倒在刀剑,饥荒,瘟疫之下。

Thus saith the Lord GOD; Smite with thine hand, and stamp with thy foot, and say, Alas for all the evil abominations of the house of Israel! for they shall fall by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence.

6:12 在远处的,必遭瘟疫而死。在近处的,必倒在刀剑之下。那存留被围困的,必因饥荒而死。我必这样在他们身上成就我怒中所定的。

He that is far off shall die of the pestilence; and he that is near shall fall by the sword; and he that remaineth and is besieged shall die by the famine: thus will I accomplish my fury upon them.

6:13 他们被杀的人,倒在他们祭坛四围的偶像中,就是各高冈,各山顶,各青翠树下,各茂密的橡树下,乃是他们献馨香的祭牲给一切偶像的地方。那时,他们就知道我是耶和华。

Then shall ye know that I am the LORD, when their slain men shall be among their idols round about their altars, upon every high hill, in all the tops of the mountains, and under every green tree, and under every thick oak, the place where they did offer sweet savour to all their idols.

6:14 我必伸手攻击他们,使他们的地从旷野到第伯拉他一切住处极其荒凉,他们就知道我是耶和华。

So will I stretch out my hand upon them, and make the land desolate, yea, more desolate than the wilderness toward Diblath, in all their habitations: and they shall know that I am the LORD.

以西结书6参考

向众山说预言,别有用意!──
6:1 这是两部分信息的开始。请记住,以西结只有在神给他信息的时候才说话。第六章的信息是,犹大的拜偶像一定要受神的审判。第七章中的信息描述了审判的种类:完全毁灭这个民族。然而,神出于怜悯拯救了一小部分人。以西结对以色列的山发出了预言,因为山是人们用来拜偶像的“高处”。

神的审判,是为了成就甚么?我是否有某些罪,需要神严厉的打击才肯改变?
6:8-10 神要拯救一小部分百姓,使预言的黑暗之中出现了一道亮光。但这是他们受到严酷教训之后的事情。神有时候要打垮一个人,好使他真正的悔改。百姓需要新的态度,但在神用羞耻、痛苦、遭罪和失败剌透他们的心之前,他们是不会有所改变的。我们渴望神来改变我们心中那些令神不高兴的地方吗?还是神不得不使我们伤心呢?

犹大面临的审判使先知拍手顿足的震惊,这些审判是甚么?
6:11 刀剑、瘟疫和饥荒,这是先知经常对耶路撒冷发出的三重审判的预言。它们预示著完全的毁灭。“刀剑”意味著在战场上的死亡:“饥荒”意味著敌人围城的时候要来临的饥饿死亡;“瘟疫”是伴随饥荒而来的疾病的威胁。我们不要低估神的审判程度。如果我们忽视圣经上的警告而背离了神,那么等著我们的就是神的审判。

审判让真理得以彰显──耶和华是惟一的神,我虽不至不认神,却……
6:14 “他们就知道我是耶和华”的字眼(或者有些变动)在以西结书中出现了65次。神实行审判的目的并不是要复仇,而是要让真理留在百姓心中,使他们知道耶和华才是惟一的真理和活神。以西结时代的人拜人造的偶像,并且称它们为神。今天,金钱、性和权力已经成了许多人的偶像。惩罚就会临到把这些东西置于神之上的人。我们很容易忘记惟主是神。
