弥迦书2 Micah

章:1 2 3 4 5 6 7

2:1 祸哉,那些在床上图谋罪孽,造作奸恶的。天一发亮,因手有能力就行出来了。

Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.

2:2 他们贪图田地就占据。贪图房屋便夺取。他们欺压人,霸占房屋和产业。

And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage.

2:3 所以耶和华如此说,我筹划灾祸降与这族,这祸在你们的颈项上不能解脱,你们也不能昂首而行。因为这时势是恶的。

Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, against this family do I devise an evil, from which ye shall not remove your necks; neither shall ye go haughtily: for this time is evil.

2:4 到那日,必有人向你们提起悲惨的哀歌,讥刺说,我们全然败落了。耶和华将我们的分转归别人。何竟使这分离开我们。他将我们的田地分给悖逆的人。

In that day shall one take up a parable against you, and lament with a doleful lamentation, and say, We be utterly spoiled: he hath changed the portion of my people: how hath he removed it from me! turning away he hath divided our fields.

2:5 所以,在耶和华的会中,你必没有人拈阄拉准绳。

Therefore thou shalt have none that shall cast a cord by lot in the congregation of the LORD.

2:6 他们(或作假先知)说,你们不可说预言,不可向这些人说预言,不住地羞辱我们。

Prophesy ye not, say they to them that prophesy: they shall not prophesy to them, that they shall not take shame.

2:7 雅各家阿,岂可说耶和华的心不忍耐吗(或作心肠狭窄吗)。这些事是他所行的吗。我耶和华的言语,岂不是与行动正直的人有益吗。

O thou that art named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the LORD straitened? are these his doings? do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly?

2:8 然而,近来我的民兴起如仇敌,从那些安然经过不愿打仗之人身上剥去外衣。

Even of late my people is risen up as an enemy: ye pull off the robe with the garment from them that pass by securely as men averse from war.

2:9 你们将我民中的妇人从安乐家中赶出,又将我的荣耀从她们的小孩子尽行夺去。

The women of my people have ye cast out from their pleasant houses; from their children have ye taken away my glory for ever.

2:10 你们起来去吧。这不是你们安息之所。因为污秽使人(或作地)毁灭,而且大大毁灭。

Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.

2:11 若有人心存虚假,用谎言说,我要向你们预言得清酒和浓酒。那人就必作这民的先知。

If a man walking in the spirit and falsehood do lie, saying, I will prophesy unto thee of wine and of strong drink; he shall even be the prophet of this people.

2:12 雅各家阿,我必要聚集你们,必要招聚以色列剩下的人,安置在一处,如波斯拉的羊,又如草场上的羊群。因为人数众多就必大大喧哗。

I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men.

2:13 开路的(或作破城的)在他们前面上去。他们直闯过城门,从城门出去。他们的王在前面行,耶和华引导他们。

The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the LORD on the head of them.

弥迦书2参考

贪心会变为行动!在我也是这样吗?
2:1-2 弥迦的话是针对那些在夜间计划恶行,早上一起来就去干的人。一个人的思想和计划能够反映出他的品格。当我们躺下时会想些甚么?是不是满脑子的贪念或想踩著别人来达到自己的目的?邪恶的想法会引致邪恶的行动。

分地跟我有关系吗?原来是……
2:5 那些压迫别人的人会发现,自己搬起的石头砸的原来是自己的脚。到最后分土地的时候,也没有他们的分,因为他们连一个活著的亲戚都没有了。

埋怨神,我有时也会……
2:6-7 这些信息看来很严厉,但请记住,神并不是要报复以色列,而是要使他们回转归向神。百姓排斥真理和正义,所以要受到严厉的教训。儿童常认为老师太严厉了,殊不知这能帮助他们走向正确的方向。如果我们只想听神安慰的信息,我们就会失去神给我们的东西。神向我们说话,我们就要听。有时候的信息令人难以接受,但我们还是要听。

是爱听悦耳的假话,还是刺耳的真话,这──
2:11 假先知只讲百姓喜欢听的话,所以百姓很喜欢他们。弥迦的话就是针对那些鼓励人们享受罪中之乐的假先知的。讲员若在讲道中不提信徒要按神旨意去行,反而说贪心和淫念甚至对人有好处,他兴许反会受欢迎。但一位真正属神的教师,不管听众喜欢听甚么,他都只讲真理。

“他们的王”是地上的君王,还是……
2:12-13 弥迦预言了两件大事:犹大从受禁锢的巴比伦中获释放;当弥赛亚再来的时候,所有的信徒要相聚。神给了他各种未来事件的异象,但并不一定给他觉察这些事件何时发生的能力。举例来说,他看不到从被掳至巴比伦到弥赛亚来临之间有多长时间,但却清楚地看到弥赛亚将要来临。这个预言的目的并不在于预告这事件究竟何时发生,而是说这事件一定要发生。这个预言给了人们希望,并帮助他们脱离罪恶。
