何西阿书5 Hosea

章:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14

5:1 众祭司阿,要听我的话,以色列家阿,要留心听。王家阿,要侧耳而听。审判要临到你们,因你们在米斯巴如网罗,在他泊山如铺张的网。

Hear ye this, O priests; and hearken, ye house of Israel; and give ye ear, O house of the king; for judgment is toward you, because ye have been a snare on Mizpah, and a net spread upon Tabor.

5:2 这些悖逆的人,肆行杀戮,罪孽极深。我却斥责他们众人。

And the revolters are profound to make slaughter, though I have been a rebuker of them all.

5:3 以法莲为我所知,以色列不能向我隐藏。以法莲哪,现在你行淫了,以色列被玷污了。

I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hid from me: for now, O Ephraim, thou committest whoredom, and Israel is defiled.

5:4 他们所行的使他们不能归向神,因有淫心在他们里面,他们也不认识耶和华。

They will not frame their doings to turn unto their God: for the spirit of whoredoms is in the midst of them, and they have not known the LORD.

5:5 以色列的骄傲当面见证自己。故此,以色列和以法莲必因自己的罪孽跌倒,犹大也必与他们一同跌倒。

And the pride of Israel doth testify to his face: therefore shall Israel and Ephraim fall in their iniquity; Judah also shall fall with them.

5:6 他们必牵着牛羊去寻求耶和华,却寻不见,他已经转去离开他们。

They shall go with their flocks and with their herds to seek the LORD; but they shall not find him; he hath withdrawn himself from them.

5:7 他们向耶和华行事诡诈,生了私子。到了月朔,他们与他们的地业必被吞灭。

They have dealt treacherously against the LORD: for they have begotten strange children: now shall a month devour them with their portions.

5:8 你们当在基比亚吹角,在拉玛吹号,在伯亚文吹出大声,说,便雅悯哪,有仇敌在你后头。

Blow ye the cornet in Gibeah, and the trumpet in Ramah: cry aloud at Bethaven, after thee, O Benjamin.

5:9 在责罚的日子,以法莲必变为荒场。我在以色列支派中。指示将来必成的事。

Ephraim shall be desolate in the day of rebuke: among the tribes of Israel have I made known that which shall surely be.

5:10 犹大的首领如同挪移地界的人,我必将忿怒倒在他们身上,如水一般。

The princes of Judah were like them that remove the bound: therefore I will pour out my wrath upon them like water.

5:11 以法莲因乐从人的命令,就受欺压,被审判压碎。

Ephraim is oppressed and broken in judgment, because he willingly walked after the commandment.

5:12 我使以法莲如虫蛀之物,使犹大家如朽烂之木。

Therefore will I be unto Ephraim as a moth, and to the house of Judah as rottenness.

5:13 以法莲见自己有病,犹大见自己有伤,他们就打发人往亚述去见耶雷布王,他却不能医治你们,不能治好你们的伤。

When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah saw his wound, then went Ephraim to the Assyrian, and sent to king Jareb: yet could he not heal you, nor cure you of your wound.

5:14 我必向以法莲如狮子,向犹大家如少壮狮子。我必撕裂而去,我要夺去,无人搭救。

For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, even I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall rescue him.

5:15 我要回到原处,等他们自觉有罪(或作承认己罪),寻求我面,他们在急难的时候,必切切寻求我。

I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.

何西阿书5参考

以色列人选择跟从他们的领袖而泥足深陷;我看我今天所作的选择,是……
5:1-2 米斯巴和他泊是敬拜假神巴力的主要地点,领袖甚至教唆百姓在这些地方犯罪。朝野腐败堕落令人失望,以色列的百姓可说是没甚么指望了。他们仰望领袖引导时应有此发现。今日,我们常可选择自己的领导人,但仍须注意他们是在带领我们接近还是远离神。神要求人为自己所做的事负责,同样,他也要我们为自己的行为和抉择负责。

人会对罪感到麻木!?我……
5:4 持续不断地犯罪使人心变得刚硬、不易悔改。故意选择跟神对抗使人的良心麻木,犯了一次罪,下次就更易再犯。要尽量远离罪恶的行为,避免让它在你里面留下轨迹。

吹号,带来的信息是……
5:8 基比亚和拉玛是离耶路撒冷不远的以色列的城。何西阿预言这两座城将要吹响审判将至的警号。

犹大为何惹得神发怒?
5:10 移动地界是严重的罪行(参申27:17)。何西阿在这里指责犹大首领如同那些移动界石来欺骗百姓的人(参申19:14)。

神的旨意,我能改变吗?我……
5:13 在米拿现和何细亚统治年间,以色列向亚述求助(参王下15:19-20;17:3-4)。但即使是当时的世界强国也不能帮以色列的忙,因为神已决意要审判这个国家。如果我们轻视神对我们发出的悔罪的呼召,又怎能逃过他的审判呢?(参来2:3)
