8:1 耶和华吩咐摩西说,你进去见法老,对他说,耶和华这样说,容我的百姓去,好事奉我。

And the LORD spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

8:2 你若不肯容他们去,我必使青蛙糟蹋你的四境。

And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs:

8:3 河里要滋生青蛙,这青蛙要上来进你的宫殿和你的卧房,上你的床榻,进你臣仆的房屋,上你百姓的身上,进你的炉灶和你的抟面盆,

And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs:

8:4 又要上你和你百姓并你众臣仆的身上。

And the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy people, and upon all thy servants.

8:5 耶和华晓谕摩西说,你对亚伦说,把你的杖伸在江,河,池以上,使青蛙到埃及地上来。

And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt.

8:6 亚伦便伸杖在埃及的诸水以上,青蛙就上来,遮满了埃及地。

And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.

8:7 行法术的也用他们的邪术照样而行,叫青蛙上了埃及地。

And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt.

8:8 法老召了摩西,亚伦来,说,请你们求耶和华使这青蛙离开我和我的民,我就容百姓去祭祀耶和华。

Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Intreat the LORD, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice unto the LORD.

8:9 摩西对法老说,任凭你吧,我要何时为你和你的臣仆并你的百姓祈求,除灭青蛙离开你和你的宫殿只留在河里呢。

And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I intreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only?

8:10 他说,明天。摩西说,可以照你的话吧,好叫你知道没有像耶和华我们神的。

And he said, To morrow. And he said, Be it according to thy word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the LORD our God.

8:11 青蛙要离开你和你的宫殿,并你的臣仆与你的百姓,只留在河里。

And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the river only.

8:12 于是摩西,亚伦离开法老出去。摩西为扰害法老的青蛙呼求耶和华。

And Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and Moses cried unto the LORD because of the frogs which he had brought against Pharaoh.

8:13 耶和华就照摩西的话行。凡在房里,院中,田间的青蛙都死了。

And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields.

8:14 众人把青蛙聚拢成堆,遍地就都腥臭。

And they gathered them together upon heaps: and the land stank.

8:15 但法老见灾祸松缓,就硬着心,不肯听他们,正如耶和华所说的。

But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.

8:16 耶和华吩咐摩西说,你对亚伦说,伸出你的杖击打地上的尘土,使尘土在埃及遍地变作虱子(或作虼蚤下同)。

And the LORD said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.

8:17 他们就这样行。亚伦伸杖击打地上的尘土,就在人身上和牲畜身上有了虱子,埃及遍地的尘土都变成虱子了。

And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt.

8:18 行法术的也用邪术要生出虱子来,却是不能。于是在人身上和牲畜身上都有了虱子。

And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon beast.

8:19 行法术的就对法老说,这是神的手段。法老心里刚硬,不肯听摩西,亚伦,正如耶和华所说的。

Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God: and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.

8:20 耶和华对摩西说,你清早起来,法老来到水边,你站在他面前,对他说,耶和华这样说,容我的百姓去,好事奉我。

And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

8:21 你若不容我的百姓去,我要叫成群的苍蝇到你和你臣仆并你百姓的身上,进你的房屋,并且埃及人的房屋和他们所住的地都要满了成群的苍蝇。

Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.

8:22 当那日,我必分别我百姓所住的歌珊地,使那里没有成群的苍蝇,好叫你知道我是天下的耶和华。

And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth.

8:23 我要将我的百姓和你的百姓分别出来。明天必有这神迹。

And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.

8:24 耶和华就这样行。苍蝇成了大群,进入法老的宫殿,和他臣仆的房屋,埃及遍地就因这成群的苍蝇败坏了。

And the LORD did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants’ houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies.

8:25 法老召了摩西,亚伦来,说,你们去,在这地祭祀你们的神吧。

And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go ye, sacrifice to your God in the land.

8:26 摩西说,这样行本不相宜,因为我们要把埃及人所厌恶的祭祀耶和华我们的神,若把埃及人所厌恶的在他们眼前献为祭,他们岂不拿石头打死我们吗。

And Moses said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to the LORD our God: lo, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and will they not stone us?

8:27 我们要往旷野去,走三天的路程,照着耶和华我们神所要吩咐我们的祭祀他。

We will go three days’ journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to the LORD our God, as he shall command us.

8:28 法老说,我容你们去,在旷野祭祀耶和华你们的神,只是不要走得很远。求你们为我祈祷。

And Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice to the LORD your God in the wilderness; only ye shall not go very far away: intreat for me.

8:29 摩西说,我要出去求耶和华,使成群的苍蝇明天离开法老和法老的臣仆并法老的百姓,法老却不可再行诡诈,不容百姓去祭祀耶和华。

And Moses said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will intreat the LORD that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, to morrow: but let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the LORD.

8:30 于是摩西离开法老去求耶和华。

And Moses went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD.

8:31 耶和华就照摩西的话行,叫成群的苍蝇离开法老和他的臣仆并他的百姓,一个也没有留下。

And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; there remained not one.

8:32 这一次法老又硬着心,不容百姓去。

And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he let the people go.

出埃及记8参考

青蛙居然上到法老宫殿的卧房、床榻,可见──
8:3-15 摩西预言埃及各家都要受青蛙滋扰。埃及的穷苦人住在泥砖所砌的小房子里,只有一两个房间,屋顶是用棕树枝做的。富有之人则住两三层高的房子,周围有美丽的花园与围墙。仆人在底层工作,主人则住在高层。如果青蛙进入王宫的寝室,表示连高层也有了青蛙,埃及全地无一处不受它的滋扰。

顽梗、刚硬、自以为是的结果──
8:15 法老听到再三的警告以后,仍然不肯顺服神让以色列人离开。每次灾难过去,他都心里刚硬。他的顽固,使自己和全国饱受灾殃。坚持立场有时是对的,可有时是自以为是的,对神顽梗就是不顺服,将会害人害己;应当顺服神,以免殃及别人。

为甚么有人看见神的大能,却仍然不肯信从神呢?
8:19 有人会说,“只要我见到神迹,我就会信靠神。”法老虽然有机会看见神迹(当埃及遍地受到虱灾时,就连术士也承认这是神的作为),但他仍然不肯相信。他的顽梗,使他看不见实情。你除去顽固之心,就会看到神在你身上的奇妙作为;他会显出许多凭证,使你惊奇。

法老妥协了,不是挺好吗──有时神的命令太绝对,不妨妥协一点,也可以吧……
8:25-29 法老想与以色列人妥协,让他们去献祭,却不让百姓走远。但是神的命令是斩钉截铁的,一定要以色列人离开埃及。人有时劝基督徒妥协,局部顺服神的命令,但是对神的委身与顺服,是不允许讨价还价的。绝对不可对神半信半服。

何为“埃及人所厌恶的”?
8:26 以色列人所要献为祭物的牲畜,是埃及人奉为神明的。为免触怒他们,摩西不愿在他们眼皮底下献祭。
