章:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25

7:1 以利沙说,你们要听耶和华的话,耶和华如此说,明日约到这时候,在撒马利亚城门口,一细亚细面要卖银一舍客勒,二细亚大麦也要卖银一舍客勒。

Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the LORD; Thus saith the LORD, To morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.

7:2 有一个搀扶王的军长对神人说,即便耶和华使天开了窗户,也不能有这事。以利沙说,你必亲眼看见,却不得吃。

Then a lord on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, Behold, if the LORD would make windows in heaven, might this thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.

7:3 在城门那里有四个长大麻疯的人,他们彼此说,我们为何坐在这里等死呢。

And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die?

7:4 我们若说,进城去吧。城里有饥荒,必死在那里。若在这里坐着不动,也必是死。来吧,我们去投降亚兰人的军队,他们若留我们的活命,就活着。若杀我们,就死了吧。

If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.

7:5 黄昏的时候,他们起来往亚兰人的营盘去。到了营边,不见一人在那里。

And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the camp of the Syrians: and when they were come to the uttermost part of the camp of Syria, behold, there was no man there.

7:6 因为主使亚兰人的军队听见车马的声音,是大军的声音。他们就彼此说,这必是以色列王贿买赫人的诸王和埃及人的诸王来攻击我们。

For the LORD had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us.

7:7 所以,在黄昏的时候他们起来逃跑,撇下帐棚,马,驴,营盘照旧,只顾逃命。

Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp as it was, and fled for their life.

7:8 那些长大麻疯的到了营边,进了帐棚,吃了喝了,且从其中拿出金银和衣服来,去收藏了。回来又进了一座帐棚,从其中拿出财物来去收藏了。

And when these lepers came to the uttermost part of the camp, they went into one tent, and did eat and drink, and carried thence silver, and gold, and raiment, and went and hid it; and came again, and entered into another tent, and carried thence also, and went and hid it.

7:9 那时,他们彼此说,我们所作的不好。今日是有好信息的日子,我们竟不作声。若等到天亮,罪必临到我们。来吧,我们与王家报信去。

Then they said one to another, We do not well: this day is a day of good tidings, and we hold our peace: if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us: now therefore come, that we may go and tell the king’s household.

7:10 他们就去叫守城门的,告诉他们说,我们到了亚兰人的营,不见一人在那里,也无人声,只有拴着的马和驴,帐棚都照旧。

So they came and called unto the porter of the city: and they told them, saying, We came to the camp of the Syrians, and, behold, there was no man there, neither voice of man, but horses tied, and asses tied, and the tents as they were.

7:11 守城门的叫了众守门的人来,他们就进去与王家报信。

And he called the porters; and they told it to the king’s house within.

7:12 王夜间起来,对臣仆说,我告诉你们亚兰人向我们如何行。他们知道我们饥饿,所以离营,埋伏在田野,说,以色列人出城的时候,我们就活捉他们,得以进城。

And the king arose in the night, and said unto his servants, I will now shew you what the Syrians have done to us. They know that we be hungry; therefore are they gone out of the camp to hide themselves in the field, saying, When they come out of the city, we shall catch them alive, and get into the city.

7:13 有一个臣仆对王说,我们不如用城里剩下之马中的五匹马(马和城里剩下的以色列人都是一样,快要灭绝),打发人去窥探。

And one of his servants answered and said, Let some take, I pray thee, five of the horses that remain, which are left in the city, (behold, they are as all the multitude of Israel that are left in it: behold, I say, they are even as all the multitude of the Israelites that are consumed:) and let us send and see.

7:14 于是取了两辆车和马,王差人去追寻亚兰军,说,你们去窥探窥探。

They took therefore two chariot horses; and the king sent after the host of the Syrians, saying, Go and see.

7:15 他们就追寻到约旦河,看见满道上都是亚兰人急跑时丢弃的衣服器具,使者就回来报告王。

And they went after them unto Jordan: and, lo, all the way was full of garments and vessels, which the Syrians had cast away in their haste. And the messengers returned, and told the king.

7:16 众人就出去,掳掠亚兰人的营盘。于是一细亚细面卖银一舍客勒,二细亚大麦也卖银一舍客勒,正如耶和华所说的。

And the people went out, and spoiled the tents of the Syrians. So a measure of fine flour was sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, according to the word of the LORD.

7:17 王派搀扶他的那军长在城门口弹压,众人在那里将他践踏,他就死了,正如神人在王下来见他的时候所说的。

And the king appointed the lord on whose hand he leaned to have the charge of the gate: and the people trode upon him in the gate, and he died, as the man of God had said, who spake when the king came down to him.

7:18 神人曾对王说,明日约到这时候,在撒马利亚城门口,二细亚大麦要卖银一舍客勒,一细亚细面也要卖银一舍客勒。

And it came to pass as the man of God had spoken to the king, saying, Two measures of barley for a shekel, and a measure of fine flour for a shekel, shall be to morrow about this time in the gate of Samaria:

7:19 那军长对神人说,即便耶和华使天开了窗户,也不能有这事。神人说,你必亲眼看见,却不得吃。

And that lord answered the man of God, and said, Now, behold, if the LORD should make windows in heaven, might such a thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.

7:20 这话果然应验在他身上。因为众人在城门口将他践踏,他就死了。

And so it fell out unto him: for the people trode upon him in the gate, and he died.

列王记下7参考

神能成就万事,可是我有时小信,军长的教训告诫我……
7:1-2 以利沙预言神要拯救,王的一个军长说绝不可能。他失去信心与盼望,但神的话语仍然实现了(7:14-16)。在我们应当寻找机会的时候,满心总是想著种种难处。不要只消极地想到失败,要心存盼望积极争取。你说神不能拯救某人或改变某种情势,就表示你的信心不足。

长大麻疯的人不是要留在城外吗?为何他们……
7:3 以色列的律法规定,患大麻疯之人不可居住在城里,必须住在城外,靠别人施舍周济为生(参利13:45-46;民5:1-4)。因为城内有饥荒,又有亚兰大军压境,所以情势十分危急。

分享传扬好消息要及时,那些长大麻疯的人给了我们一个好榜样!我做得怎样?
7:3-10 几个长大麻疯的人看到亚兰人所撇下的营寨,知道自己平安无事了。他们最初把好消息留住,没有去告诉城里饥饿的同胞。与此相仿,我们也必须传扬耶稣基督的好消息,因为这是最重要的消息。不可忘记未听到福音、生命垂危之人,不可陶醉于自己的信仰,而不向周围的人传扬。我们的好消息和长大麻疯之人的一样,不可“等到天亮”,要快快传出去。

耶和华以勒──神永远必有预备,想想,神在你身上的供应 ……
7:19-20 供给我们日用饮食的,是神而并不是无用的偶像,即使我们的信心软弱又微小,也不可怀疑神的供应。在我们缺乏供应、疑虑如云的时候,要记住神能敞开天上的窗户来供应我们。
