以赛亚书27 Isaiah

章:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66

27:1 到那日,耶和华必用他刚硬有力的大刀,刑罚鳄鱼,就是那快行的蛇,刑罚鳄鱼,就是那曲行的蛇。并杀海中的大鱼。

In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.

27:2 当那日有出酒的葡萄园。你们要指这园唱歌,说,

In that day sing ye unto her, A vineyard of red wine.

27:3 我耶和华是看守葡萄园的,我必时刻浇灌,昼夜看守,免得有人损害。

I the LORD do keep it; I will water it every moment: lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day.

27:4 我心中不存忿怒。惟愿荆棘蒺藜与我交战,我就勇往直前,把他一同焚烧。

Fury is not in me: who would set the briers and thorns against me in battle? I would go through them, I would burn them together.

27:5 不然,让他持住我的能力,使他与我和好。愿他与我和好。

Or let him take hold of my strength, that he may make peace with me; and he shall make peace with me.

27:6 将来雅各要扎根,以色列要发芽开花。他们的果实,必充满世界。

He shall cause them that come of Jacob to take root: Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit.

27:7 主击打他们,岂像击打那些击打他们的人吗。他们被杀戮,岂像被他们所杀戮的吗。

Hath he smitten him, as he smote those that smote him? or is he slain according to the slaughter of them that are slain by him?

27:8 你打发他们去,是相机宜与他们相争。刮东风的日子,就用暴风将他们逐去。

In measure, when it shooteth forth, thou wilt debate with it: he stayeth his rough wind in the day of the east wind.

27:9 所以雅各的罪孽得赦免,他的罪过得除掉的果效,全在乎此。就是他叫祭坛的石头,变为打碎的灰石,以致木偶和日像,不再立起。

By this therefore shall the iniquity of Jacob be purged; and this is all the fruit to take away his sin; when he maketh all the stones of the altar as chalkstones that are beaten in sunder, the groves and images shall not stand up.

27:10 因为坚固城变为凄凉,成了撇下离弃的居所,像旷野一样,牛犊必在那里吃草,在那里躺卧,并吃尽其中的树枝。

Yet the defenced city shall be desolate, and the habitation forsaken, and left like a wilderness: there shall the calf feed, and there shall he lie down, and consume the branches thereof.

27:11 枝条枯乾,必被折断。妇女要来,点火烧着,因为为这百姓蒙昧无知,所以创造他们的,必不怜恤他们,造成他们的,也不施恩与他们。

When the boughs thereof are withered, they shall be broken off: the women come, and set them on fire: for it is a people of no understanding: therefore he that made them will not have mercy on them, and he that formed them will shew them no favour.

27:12 以色列人哪,到那日,耶和华必从大河,直到埃及小河,将你们一一的收集,如同人打树拾果一样。

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall beat off from the channel of the river unto the stream of Egypt, and ye shall be gathered one by one, O ye children of Israel.

27:13 当那日,必大发角声。在亚述地将要灭亡的,必在埃及地被赶散的,都要来。他们就在耶路撒冷圣山上敬拜耶和华。

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem.

以赛亚书27参考

鳄鱼、蛇、大鱼,比喻的是──
27:1 “那日”是指邪恶世界的终了。在古代亚兰(乌加列)文学中,“鱼和大鱼”是七个头的海怪,是神创造秩序的敌人。以赛亚把神毁灭邪恶比作征服强大的敌人,尽管邪恶是个强大的仇敌,神要将它粉碎并从世界上永远除去。

神的葡萄园,指甚么?
27:2-6 第5章中那遭践踏的葡萄园将在神的新地上得以重建。这是说神将保护和照料他的葡萄园和他的百姓。它将不再生长无用的果子,只生产好果子。外邦人将通过以色列人知道神。

除去我们的罪是靠……
27:9 只有神能除去罪恶。百姓被逐出土地的惩罚,是神为了洁净他的百姓。申命记28章49至52和64节解释了神对这些后果的警告。

树、树干、树枝,是圣经中常用的比喻,你熟悉它们的寓意吗?
27:11 以赛亚把以色列的属灵生活状况比作枯乾的细枝条,要被折断用来生火。树在经文中常代表属灵生活。“树干”是神的力量通道,“树枝”是事奉他的百姓。树枝有时候在风中摇摆晃动;就像以色列一样,它们会从里面烂掉而乾枯,变得毫无用处,只能用来当柴禾烧。你是甚么样的枝子?如果你的灵命枯萎了,那你就要鉴察一下自己,牢牢地抓住神。

打树拾果子,你有没有干过?可是在这里却是……
27:12 “打”意味著“审判”。神审判大地的目的不是复仇,而是洁净。他要修正我们并将我们领回到他身边。神惩罚我们不光因我们有罪而让我们受苦,他是要使那些忠心的人有更好的装备,更有效地服事他。
埃及小河所指──
27:12 在这里小河是指一条溪流或乾枯了的溪涧。
