何西阿书7 Hosea

章:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14

7:1 我想医治以色列的时候,以法莲的罪孽,和撒玛利亚的罪恶,就显露出来。他们行事虚谎,内有贼人入室偷窃,外有强盗成群骚扰。

When I would have healed Israel, then the iniquity of Ephraim was discovered, and the wickedness of Samaria: for they commit falsehood; and the thief cometh in, and the troop of robbers spoileth without.

7:2 他们心里并不思想我记念他们的一切恶,他们所行的现在缠绕他们,都在我面前。

And they consider not in their hearts that I remember all their wickedness: now their own doings have beset them about; they are before my face.

7:3 他们行恶使君王欢喜,说谎使首领喜乐。

They make the king glad with their wickedness, and the princes with their lies.

7:4 他们都是行淫的,像火炉被烤饼的烧热,从抟面到发面的时候,暂不使火着旺。

They are all adulterers, as an oven heated by the baker, who ceaseth from raising after he hath kneaded the dough, until it be leavened.

7:5 在我们王宴乐的日子,首领因酒的烈性成病。王与亵慢人拉手。

In the day of our king the princes have made him sick with bottles of wine; he stretched out his hand with scorners.

7:6 首领埋伏的时候,心中热如火炉,就如烤饼的整夜睡卧,到了早晨火气炎炎。

For they have made ready their heart like an oven, whiles they lie in wait: their baker sleepeth all the night; in the morning it burneth as a flaming fire.

7:7 众民也热如火炉,烧灭他们的官长。他们的君王都仆倒而死。他们中间无一人求告我。

They are all hot as an oven, and have devoured their judges; all their kings are fallen: there is none among them that calleth unto me.

7:8 以法莲与列邦人搀杂。以法莲是没有翻过的饼。

Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned.

7:9 外邦人吞吃他劳力得来的,他却不知道,头发斑白,他也不觉得。

Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth it not: yea, gray hairs are here and there upon him, yet he knoweth not.

7:10 以色列的骄傲当面见证自己,虽遭遇这一切,他们仍不归向耶和华他们的神,也不寻求他。

And the pride of Israel testifieth to his face: and they do not return to the LORD their God, nor seek him for all this.

7:11 以法莲好像鸽子愚蠢无知。他们求告埃及,投奔亚述。

Ephraim also is like a silly dove without heart: they call to Egypt, they go to Assyria.

7:12 他们去的时候,我必将我的网撒在他们身上,我要打下他们,如同空中的鸟。我必按他们会众所听见的惩罚他们。

When they shall go, I will spread my net upon them; I will bring them down as the fowls of the heaven; I will chastise them, as their congregation hath heard.

7:13 他们因离弃我,必定有祸,因违背我,必被毁灭。我虽要救赎他们,他们却向我说谎。

Woe unto them! for they have fled from me: destruction unto them! because they have transgressed against me: though I have redeemed them, yet they have spoken lies against me.

7:14 他们并不诚心哀求我,乃在床上呼号。他们为求五谷新酒聚集,仍然悖逆我。

And they have not cried unto me with their heart, when they howled upon their beds: they assemble themselves for corn and wine, and they rebel against me.

7:15 我虽教导他们,坚固他们的膀臂,他们竟图谋抗拒我。

Though I have bound and strengthened their arms, yet do they imagine mischief against me.

7:16 他们归向,却不归向至上者。他们如同翻背的弓。他们的首领必因舌头的狂傲倒在刀下,这在埃及地必作人的讥笑。

They return, but not to the most High: they are like a deceitful bow: their princes shall fall by the sword for the rage of their tongue: this shall be their derision in the land of Egypt.

何西阿书7参考

我的所作所为神都在隐密处看到吗?那……
7:1-2 神是无所不见,无所不知的。我们常忘记这点,如同以色列人一样。“无人知道”、“无人看见”这类想法使我们企图掩饰罪行。若你在面对极大诱惑时提醒自己:“神正注视著我,”就不致屈服受诱。遇有犯罪的机会时,切记神的眼目遍察全地。

热如火炉,当不会是指那些领袖的灵命高涨吧……
7:7 “热如火炉”喻指领袖们心中燃烧著对权利和诈骗的欲望。何西阿一生看见三个以色列王被谋杀,他们是亚撒利雅、沙龙和比加辖(参王下15:8-26),他们的内政外交都陷于瘫痪,因他们忽视了神和他的话语。

与外邦人通婚,会引致人们离开神;与非信徒交往,岂不──?你说我们仍然可以做点甚么……
7:8 以色列人与外邦人通婚并学他们行邪恶的事。所谓“近朱者赤,近墨者黑”,在我们工作、生活或娱乐当中与非信徒交往时,要小心提防他们可能对我们产生的不良影响;看看能否从正面善诱他们,把他们引向神,而不要随波逐流、染上恶习。

骄傲?我只是看自己较人家好一点,怎算得是?
7:10 骄傲使人远离神,使人觉得自己不需要神或他人的帮助,甚至使人在其他方面的罪得到强化,因为若不首先去掉骄傲,我们就无法悔改。

人总在人的方法用尽后才寻找神,总在……你是这样吗?
7:11 以色列王米拿现曾买通亚述王帮他巩固王位(参王下15:19-20),后来何细亚王反叛亚述、投奔埃及(参王下17:4)。在应该投靠神的时候,以色列的王却周旋于各国间,寻求结盟。

跟神背道而驰,我们的生活将陷入甚么景况?
7:16 “翻背的弓”就是有毛病的弓,是靠不住的。在战斗中射出的箭偏离目标,弓箭手就容易被敌人攻击。没有神的生命就如同翻背的弓;没有神的指引,我们的思想便充满了情欲、欺骗、自私和虚伪。长期被罪缠身的人很难有真正美好的将来。

在世间寻寻觅觅,为求寻得生活满足,人生意义,殊不知道,所需要的……
7:16 人们到处追求快乐、满足、财产、活力和人际关系,就是不亲近神。事实上,只有神才能满足灵魂深处的需求。人首先要仰望上天,向至高神求,神必满足你灵魂上的需要,而非物质上的需求。
