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

16:1 我听见有大声音从殿中出来,向那七位天使说,你们去,把盛神大怒的七碗倒在地上。

And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.

16:2 第一位天使便去,把碗倒在地上,就有恶而且毒的疮,生在那些有兽印记,拜兽像的人身上。

And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

16:3 第二位天使把碗倒在海里,海就变成血,好像死人的血,海中的活物都死了。

And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.

16:4 第三位天使把碗倒在江河与众水的泉源里,水就变成血了。

And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.

16:5 我听见掌管众水的天使说,昔在今在的圣者阿,你这样判断是公义的。

And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.

16:6 他们曾流圣徒与先知的血,现在你给他们血喝。这是他们所该受的。

For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.

16:7 我又听见祭坛中有声音说,是的,主神,全能者阿,你的判断义哉,诚哉。

And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.

16:8 第四位天使把碗倒在日头上,叫日头能用火烤人。

And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.

16:9 人被大热所烤,就亵渎那有权掌管这些灾的神之名,并不悔改将荣耀归给神。

And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

16:10 第五位天使把碗倒在兽的座位上,兽的国就黑暗了。人因疼痛就咬自己的舌头。

And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,

16:11 又因所受的疼痛,和生的疮,就亵渎天上的神。并不悔改所行的。

And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

16:12 第六位天使把碗倒在伯拉大河上,河水就乾了,要给那从日出之地所来的众王豫备道路。

And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

16:13 我又看见三个污秽的灵,好像青蛙,从龙口兽口并假先知的口中出来。

And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

16:14 他们本是鬼魔的灵,施行奇事,出去到普天下众王那里,叫他们在神全能者的大日聚集争战。

For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

16:15 (看哪,我来像贼一样。那儆醒,看守衣服,免得赤身而行,叫人见他羞耻的,有福了

Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

16:16 那三个鬼魔便叫众王聚集在一处,希伯来话叫哈米吉多顿。

And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

16:17 第七位天使把碗倒在空中,就有大声音从殿中的宝座上出来,说,成了。

And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.

16:18 又有闪电,声音,雷轰,大地震,自从地上有人以来,没有这样大这样利害的地震。

And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

16:19 那大城裂为三段,列国的城也都倒塌了。神也想起巴比伦大城来,要把那盛自己烈怒的酒杯递给他。

And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

16:20 各海岛都逃避了,众山也不见了。

And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

16:21 又有大雹子从天落在人身上,每一个约重一他连得。(一他连得约有九十斤)为这雹子的灾极大,人就亵渎神。

And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

启示录16参考

七碗,与七印、七号同是一个七,可是有点不同……
16:1-21 碗的审判是神对地上最后和最全面的审判,末日已经来了。号的审判和碗的审判(8:6-11:19)有相似的地方,但有三个主要的差异:(1)号的审判是局部的,而碗的审判是全面的;(2)号的审判仍然给不信的人有机会悔改,但碗的审判却再没有机会给不信的人了;(3)有几个号的审判只是间接地影响人类,但所有碗的审判都直接攻击他们。

祭坛也有声音!难道是……
16:7 祭坛的回响说明了所有人和物都在赞美神,承认他是正直和全然公义的。

纵然知道神,仍不归向神!人真会这样吗?你是这样吗?
16:9-21 世人知道这些审判是从神来的;因为他们咒骂神,所以神要审判他们。但是他们仍然拒绝承认神的主权,拒绝为自己的罪悔改。倘若你发觉自己愈来愈忽视神,请在你的心肠还未变得太硬、不能悔改之前回转归向他吧!

幼发拉底河,可真是一条很关键的河……
16:12 幼发拉底河是罗马帝国抵御东方势力(巴比伦、亚述、波斯)的天然屏障。若大河乾涸了,便再不能阻止入侵的军队。东方的军队象徵不能阻止的审判。

能施行奇事的最为可怕!人心所趋,很多时就是如此,你看今世人所跟随的……
16:13-14 这些能行奇事神迹的鬼魔从邪恶的三位一体的口中走出来,与世上的首领联合起来对抗神。从那三位邪恶领袖口中出来的鬼魔,象徵言论的诱骗和宣传的蛊惑,吸引很多人去参加他们的行列。

要随时预备迎见神!你准备好了没有?
16:15 耶稣基督在想不到的时候,忽然再来(参帖前5:1-6),因此我们必须作好准备。我们要在试探中站稳,决志遵从神的道德要求,好好准备自己。在你的生命中,预备好迎接主的再来没有?

有一天,神要在这地与鬼魔争战;今天我们面对不同的争战,我真可以得胜?
16:16 这一处战场靠近米吉多(位于现代海法港的东南面),这座城市看守著以色列北部的一片大平原,为国际交通要道的枢纽,是由埃及经叙利亚,往巴比伦的必经之路,具有重要的战略地位。米吉多俯瞰整个平原,直至南面加利利省,向西直至基利波山。反对神的人要联合起来,在最后一次叛乱中与神争战,他们已经联合起来对抗基督和他的子民──那些代表真理、和平、公义和道德的人。你个人与罪恶的战争,也是这场大战的预告,但神要与罪恶相遇,一次把它完全消灭。所以,当你抵挡罪恶的时候,要刚强、壮胆;你是站在胜利的一方的。

裂作三段,定有甚么意思的……
16:19 这座城裂作三段,象徵它被完全毁灭了。
