8:1 第六年六月初五日,我坐在家中。犹大的众长老坐在我面前。在那里主耶和华的灵(原文作手)降在我身上。

And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I sat in mine house, and the elders of Judah sat before me, that the hand of the Lord GOD fell there upon me.

8:2 我观看,见有形像彷佛火的形状,从他腰以下的形状有火,从他腰以上有光辉的形状,彷佛光耀的精金。

Then I beheld, and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins even downward, fire; and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour of amber.

8:3 他伸出彷佛一只手的样式,抓住我的一绺头发,灵就将我举到天地中间,在神的异象中,带我到耶路撒冷朝北的内院门口,在那里有触动主怒偶像的坐位,就是惹动忌邪的。

And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.

8:4 谁知,在那里有以色列神的荣耀,形状与我在平原所见的一样。

And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according to the vision that I saw in the plain.

8:5 神对我说,人子阿,你举目向北观看。我就举目向北观看,见祭坛门的北边在门口有这惹忌邪的偶像。

Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.

8:6 又对我说,人子阿,以色列家所行的,就是在此行这大可憎的事,使我远离我的圣所,你看见了吗。你还要看见另有大可憎的事。

He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations.

8:7 他领我到院门口。我观看,见墙上有个窟窿。

And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall.

8:8 他对我说,人子阿,你要挖墙。我一挖墙,见有一门。

Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door.

8:9 他说,你进去,看他们在这里所行可憎的恶事。

And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.

8:10 我进去一看,谁知,在四面墙上画着各样爬物和可憎的走兽,并以色列家一切的偶像。

So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about.

8:11 在这些像前有以色列家的七十个长老站立,沙番的儿子雅撒尼亚也站在其中。各人手拿香炉,烟云的香气上腾。

And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up.

8:12 他对我说,人子阿,以色列家的长老暗中在各人画像屋里所行的,你看见了吗。他们常说,耶和华看不见我们。耶和华已经离弃这地。

Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, The LORD seeth us not; the LORD hath forsaken the earth.

8:13 他又说,你还要看见他们另外行大可憎的事。

He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do.

8:14 他领我到耶和华殿外院朝北的门口。谁知,在那里有妇女坐着,为搭模斯哭泣。

Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.

8:15 他对我说,人子阿,你看见了吗。你还要看见比这更可憎的事。

Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.

8:16 他又领我到耶和华殿的内院。谁知,在耶和华的殿门口,廊子和祭坛中间,约有二十五个人背向耶和华的殿,面向东方拜日头。

And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD’s house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.

8:17 他对我说,人子阿,你看见了吗。犹大家在此行这可憎的事还算为小吗。他们在这地遍行强暴,再三惹我发怒,他们手拿枝条举向鼻前。

Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.

8:18 因此,我也要以忿怒行事,我眼必不顾惜,也不可怜他们。他们虽向我耳中大声呼求,我还是不听。

Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.

以西结书8参考

第8章至第11章的预言所记的,主要是甚么信息?
8章 这个预言发于公元前592年。第8至11章的信息是特指耶路撒冷和它的领袖。第8章记载了以西结在异象中从巴比伦被提到了耶路撒冷,看见了在那里所行的大邪恶的事情。百姓和他们的宗教领袖完全败坏了。以西结的第一个异象(第1-3章)说明审判是来自神,这个异象则是说,审判的原因是他们的罪。

是谁将先知提往耶路撒冷的圣殿?
8:2 这个人可能是天使,或神自己的显现。在以西结前一次的异象中,描述有一个相似面貌彷佛人的坐在神的宝座上(1:26-28)。

立于圣殿中的偶像是甚么?
8:3-5 “惹忌邪的偶像”可能是指迦南丰收之神亚舍拉的形像。亚舍拉的特点是鼓励性滥交和自我满足。玛拿西王曾在殿中竖立过这偶像(参王下21:7)。约西亚王虽烧毁了亚舍拉神柱(参王下23:6),但在周围肯定还有许多其他的偶像。

当神将我的生活同样一幕幕地呈现在我眼前时,我见到的会是甚么景象?
8:6-18 神一幕幕地向以西结启示了百姓拥抱偶像和邪恶的程度。神的灵在我们的里面也做著类似的工,在我们生活中启示我们的罪。如果今天神为你的生活开办一个展览会,你会感到舒服吗?

搭模斯是甚么神?这种偶像崇拜的方式也出现在我身处的社会中吗?
8:14 搭模斯是巴比伦的幽冥之神。据称他是伊施塔女神的丈夫或情人。这一教派的追随者相信,绿色蔬菜在炎热的夏天若枯乾或死了,是因为搭模斯死了并下到了阴间;崇拜者们就为他的死亡悲哀哭泣。到了春季蔬菜长出来了,他们认为这是搭模斯复活了,并为此高兴。神显给以西结看,人们不再敬拜那赐生命和蔬菜的真神。我们也不应在花太多时间去思考被造物的益处时,忘记了创造的主。

犹大人所做的动作为甚么会惹神发怒?
8:17 拿枝条举向鼻前可能是说崇拜的仪式,或者是说犹大的罪恶变成了枝子举向了神。
