11:1 耶和华对摩西说,我再使一样的灾殃临到法老和埃及,然后他必容你们离开这地。他容你们去的时候,总要催逼你们都从这地出去。

And the LORD said unto Moses, Yet will I bring one plague more upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence: when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out hence altogether.

11:2 你要传于百姓的耳中,叫他们男女各人向邻舍要金器银器。

Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man borrow of his neighbour, and every woman of her neighbour, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold.

11:3 耶和华叫百姓在埃及人眼前蒙恩,并且摩西在埃及地,法老臣仆,和百姓的眼中看为极大。

And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people.

11:4 摩西说,耶和华这样说,约到半夜,我必出去巡行埃及遍地。

And Moses said, Thus saith the LORD, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt:

11:5 凡在埃及地,从坐宝座的法老直到磨子后的婢女所有的长子,以及一切头生的牲畜,都必死。

And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.

11:6 埃及遍地必有大哀号,从前没有这样的,后来也必没有。

And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.

11:7 至于以色列中,无论是人是牲畜,连狗也不敢向他们摇舌,好叫你们知道耶和华是将埃及人和以色列人分别出来。

But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.

11:8 你这一切臣仆都要俯伏来见我,说,求你和跟从你的百姓都出去,然后我要出去。于是,摩西气忿忿地离开法老,出去了。

And all these thy servants shall come down unto me, and bow down themselves unto me, saying, Get thee out, and all the people that follow thee: and after that I will go out. And he went out from Pharaoh in a great anger.

11:9 耶和华对摩西说,法老必不听你们,使我的奇事在埃及地多起来。

And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.

11:10 摩西,亚伦在法老面前行了这一切奇事,耶和华使法老的心刚硬,不容以色列人出离他的地。

And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land.

出埃及记11参考

以色列人从埃及人“分别出来”……我从世俗中分别出来了吗?
11:7 摩西告诉法老,神把以色列人从埃及人中间分别出来。在神的心中,分别非常清楚,他知道以色列人是他的选民,摩西心中亦深明此理。但是以色列人所看到的,只是为奴与自主的分别。后来他们在旷野,神用律例典章和各种法则教导他们,使他们成为自己的百姓,与万民有别。请记住,神所关心的是我们将变成怎样的人,而不是只看我们目前的光景。

你有不顺服、甚至抗拒神的管教的时候吗?为甚么会这样?
11:9-10 你可能奇怪法老的愚顽,他看到神的奇事大能,仍然不肯听从摩西。其实法老在灾祸开始以前,早已下定决心,他不愿相信有人比他更伟大。顽固不信使他的心地刚硬,连大灾难都不能将他软化。最后,神使用至大的灾祸,杀了他和埃及人的长子,使他不得不承认神的权能。既便到了这样的地步,他也只想神离开他的国土,并不想他来统治埃及。我们不要等到大灾难来临,才被迫去寻求神,却要敞开心灵,留意他当前的指引。

神的管教因人而异,为甚么?法老顽固是神允许的吗?
11:10 神真的使法老的心刚硬,强迫他做错事吗?在十灾以前,摩西与亚伦已经宣告,如果法老不放人,必有恶果。但是这样的警告反叫他更加顽固,心里刚硬。法老既轻侮神,又轻侮他的使者。他受了头六灾以后,内心竟然更顽劣,神只有施行更严厉的审判。恶人或迟或早都罪有应得,必受刑罚。法老不肯回心转意,神就任凭他作骄傲的抉择,使他尝到自己行为的苦果。神并没有强迫法老弃绝他,反而一再留有余地,使他回转。神说:“我断不喜悦恶人死亡。”(参结33:11)
