何西阿书9 Hosea

章:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14

9:1 以色列阿,不要像外邦人欢喜快乐,因为你行邪淫离弃你的神,在各谷场上如妓女喜爱赏赐。

Rejoice not, O Israel, for joy, as other people: for thou hast gone a whoring from thy God, thou hast loved a reward upon every cornfloor.

9:2 谷场和酒榨,都不够以色列人使用,新酒也必缺乏。

The floor and the winepress shall not feed them, and the new wine shall fail in her.

9:3 他们必不得住耶和华的地,以法莲却要归回埃及,必在亚述吃不洁净的食物。

They shall not dwell in the LORD’s land; but Ephraim shall return to Egypt, and they shall eat unclean things in Assyria.

9:4 他们必不得向耶和华奠酒,即便奠酒也不蒙悦纳。他们的祭物,必如居丧者的食物,凡吃的必被玷污,因他们的食物,只为自己的口腹,必不奉入耶和华的殿。

They shall not offer wine offerings to the LORD, neither shall they be pleasing unto him: their sacrifices shall be unto them as the bread of mourners; all that eat thereof shall be polluted: for their bread for their soul shall not come into the house of the LORD.

9:5 在大会的日子,到耶和华的节期,你们怎样行呢。

What will ye do in the solemn day, and in the day of the feast of the LORD?

9:6 看哪,他们逃避灾难,埃及人必收殓他们的尸首,摩弗人必葬埋他们的骸骨。他们用银子做的美物上必长蒺藜,他们的帐棚中必生荆棘。

For, lo, they are gone because of destruction: Egypt shall gather them up, Memphis shall bury them: the pleasant places for their silver, nettles shall possess them: thorns shall be in their tabernacles.

9:7 以色列人必知道降罚的日子临近,报应的时候来到。(民说,作先知的是愚昧,受灵感的是狂妄皆因他们多多作孽,大怀怨恨。

The days of visitation are come, the days of recompence are come; Israel shall know it: the prophet is a fool, the spiritual man is mad, for the multitude of thine iniquity, and the great hatred.

9:8 以法莲曾作我神守望的,至于先知,在他一切的道上作为捕鸟人的网罗,在他神的家中怀怨恨。

The watchman of Ephraim was with my God: but the prophet is a snare of a fowler in all his ways, and hatred in the house of his God.

9:9 以法莲深深地败坏,如在基比亚的日子一样,耶和华必记念他们的罪孽,追讨他们的罪恶。

They have deeply corrupted themselves, as in the days of Gibeah: therefore he will remember their iniquity, he will visit their sins.

9:10 主说,我遇见以色列如葡萄在旷野,我看见你们的列祖如无花果树上春季初熟的果子。他们却来到巴力毗珥专拜那可羞耻的,就成为可憎恶的,与他们所爱的一样。

I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the fig tree at her first time: but they went to Baalpeor, and separated themselves unto that shame; and their abominations were according as they loved.

9:11 至于以法莲人,他们的荣耀必如鸟飞去,必不生产,不怀胎,不成孕。

As for Ephraim, their glory shall fly away like a bird, from the birth, and from the womb, and from the conception.

9:12 纵然养大儿女,我却必使他们丧子,甚至不留一个。我离弃他们,他们就有祸了。

Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave them, that there shall not be a man left: yea, woe also to them when I depart from them!

9:13 我看以法莲如推罗栽于美地。以法莲却要将自己的儿女带出来,交与行杀戮的人。

Ephraim, as I saw Tyrus, is planted in a pleasant place: but Ephraim shall bring forth his children to the murderer.

9:14 耶和华阿,求你加给他们加什么呢,要使他们胎坠乳乾。

Give them, O LORD: what wilt thou give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts.

9:15 耶和华说,他们一切的恶事都在吉甲,我在那里憎恶他们,因他们所行的恶,我必从我地上赶出他们去,不再怜爱他们,他们的首领都是悖逆的。

All their wickedness is in Gilgal: for there I hated them: for the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of mine house, I will love them no more: all their princes are revolters.

9:16 以法莲受责罚,根本枯乾,必不能结果,即或生产,我必杀他们所生的爱子。

Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit: yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb.

9:17 我的神必弃绝他们,因为他们不听从他,他们也必飘流在列国中。

My God will cast them away, because they did not hearken unto him: and they shall be wanderers among the nations.

何西阿书9参考

辛劳之后,会否如以色列人般,成了我们纵情的藉口?
9:1 谷场为一块平地,常在山顶的平川上,农民在那里打麦脱粒。男人通常在谷场通宵守候,以便保护收成,妓女会趁机到那里寻客。因谷场在山顶上,以色列人就开始在那里向假神献祭。

人常会如以色列人般去投靠自己看为可靠的人;其实我们当倚靠的只有……
9:6 以色列的首领在与亚述还是与埃及结盟的事上摇摆不定。何西阿在这里指出与这两国结盟都是错误的。中止与不可靠的亚述联盟而跑去求助同样不可靠的埃及,并不能阻止以色列灭亡,他们惟一的希望在于归向神。

先知受灵感说神的话,人受私欲控制来取舍神的话,结果……
9:7 以色列人开始体验到犯罪的恶果。他们不再听信神的使者,拒听真理,对于先知明讲他们的罪更是充耳不闻;他们也听不到神将来审判的警告。我们总是有选择性地听或读──取己所好、弃己所恶,这样做可能会错过我们最需要的忠告。要倾听他人的批评、听取不同观点的意见,并且问自己:“神是否在通过他人向我说话?我有甚么地方尚待改进?”

基比亚的日子,他们的收场,可会给我们一点警示?
9:9 士师时代,有一利未人带著妾行至基比亚过夜,住处被一群恶棍包围,恶棍要求男人出来与他们行淫,男人便将其妾交出。众匪徒终夜轮奸、蹂躏这女子,并弃尸门旁(参士19:14-30)。这可怕的行径暴露出以色列人堕落的程度。基比亚因其恶行被消灭(参士20:8-48),何西阿指责整个以色列像基比亚一样邪恶,亦将难逃惩罚。

人喜欢甚么,心就随从甚么,人就变得像甚么;咦,我岂不……
9:10 巴力□珥是□珥的神,□珥是摩押的一座山。以色列人经过摩押平原时,摩押王巴勒请来先知巴兰咒诅他们(参民22章)。摩押人引诱以色列人去拜巴力、行淫乱,不久以色列人就变得像他们所拜的假神一样败坏。人喜欢甚么,就会变得像甚么。你崇拜甚么?你是变得像神,还是像其他东西?

何西阿何竟这么残忍,要他们胎坠乳乾?
9:14 当何西阿预见以色列的罪将带来毁灭(参王下17:7-23)时,他做了这个祷告。以色列恐怖的命运异像驱使何西阿祈求女人不要怀孕,婴孩早早夭折,以免他们遭受未来巨大的折磨与痛苦。
神那样憎恶当时的王和领袖,定是有甚么原因的……
9:15 以色列政治、宗教上的失败始于吉甲,在那里人们开始以偶像来替代神。扫罗在吉甲被立为统一王国的首位国王(参撒上11:15),到了何西阿时代,敬拜巴力在吉甲已泛滥成灾(参4:15;12:11)。
