弥迦书7 Micah

章:1 2 3 4 5 6 7

7:1 哀哉,我(或作以色列)好像夏天的果子已被收尽,又像摘了葡萄所剩下的。没有一挂可吃的,我心羡慕初熟的无花果。

Woe is me! for I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits, as the grapegleanings of the vintage: there is no cluster to eat: my soul desired the firstripe fruit.

7:2 地上虔诚人灭尽,世间没有正直人。各人埋伏,要杀人流血。都用网罗猎取弟兄。

The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net.

7:3 他们双手作恶。君王徇情面,审判官要贿赂。位分大的吐出恶意。都彼此结联行恶。

That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up.

7:4 他们最好的,不过是蒺藜。最正直的,不过是荆棘篱笆。你守望者说降罚的日子已经来到。他们必扰乱不安。

The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen and thy visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity.

7:5 不要倚赖邻舍。不要信靠密友。要守住你的口,不要向你怀中的妻题说。

Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.

7:6 因为,儿子藐视父亲,女儿抗拒母亲,媳妇抗拒婆婆。人的仇敌,就是自己家里的人。

For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house.

7:7 至于我,我要仰望耶和华,要等候那救我的神。我的神必应允我。

Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.

7:8 我的仇敌阿,不要向我夸耀。我虽跌倒,却要起来。我虽坐在黑暗里,耶和华却作我的光。

Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.

7:9 我要忍受耶和华的恼怒,因我得罪了他。直等他为我辨屈,为我伸冤。他必领我到光明中,我必得见他的公义。

I will bear the indignation of the LORD, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness.

7:10 那时我的仇敌,就是曾对我说耶和华你神在哪里的,他一看见这事就被羞愧遮盖。我必亲眼见他遭报。他必被践踏,如同街上的泥土。

Then she that is mine enemy shall see it, and shame shall cover her which said unto me, Where is the LORD thy God? mine eyes shall behold her: now shall she be trodden down as the mire of the streets.

7:11 以色列阿,日子必到,你的墙垣必重修。到那日,你的境界必开展(或作命令必传到远方)。

In the day that thy walls are to be built, in that day shall the decree be far removed.

7:12 当那日,人必从亚述,从埃及的城邑,从埃及到大河,从这海到那海,从这山到那山,都归到你这里。

In that day also he shall come even to thee from Assyria, and from the fortified cities, and from the fortress even to the river, and from sea to sea, and from mountain to mountain.

7:13 然而,这地因居民的缘故,又因他们行事的结果,必然荒凉。

Notwithstanding the land shall be desolate because of them that dwell therein, for the fruit of their doings.

7:14 求耶和华在迦密山的树林中,用你的杖牧放你独居的民,就是你产业的羊群。求你容他们在巴珊和基列得食物,像古时一样。

Feed thy people with thy rod, the flock of thine heritage, which dwell solitarily in the wood, in the midst of Carmel: let them feed in Bashan and Gilead, as in the days of old.

7:15 耶和华说,我要把奇事显给他们看,好像出埃及地的时候一样。

According to the days of thy coming out of the land of Egypt will I shew unto him marvellous things.

7:16 列国看见这事,就必为自己的势力惭愧。他们必用手捂口,掩耳不听。

The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf.

7:17 他们必舔土如蛇,又如土中腹行的物,战战兢兢地出他们的营寨。他们必战惧投降耶和华,也必因我们的神而惧怕。

They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the LORD our God, and shall fear because of thee.

7:18 神阿,有何神像你,赦免罪孽,饶恕你产业之馀民的罪过。不永远怀怒,喜爱施恩。

Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.

7:19 必再怜悯我们,将我们的罪孽踏在脚下,又将我们的一切罪投于深海。

He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

7:20 你必按古时起誓应许我们列祖的话,向雅各发诚实,向亚伯拉罕施慈爱。

Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.

弥迦书7参考

黑暗的开始,光明的结束,我看到的是──
7章 本章以忧愁开始(7:1-6),以希望结束(7:8-20)。弥迦看到周围的社会一派腐化。统治者要求人献礼,执法人收贿赂,腐化堕落无处不在。但神应许百姓说,他要将他们领出黑暗,进入他的光明之中。到那时候,人们就会赞美神的大信实。只有神才最信实。

世上不公平不公义的事太多,是妥协?是抗争?随大流最安全?神的意思是……
7:1-4 弥迦在地上找不到一个正直的人。就是在今天,正直者(诚实、廉正)也难寻见。社会在使罪恶合理化,就连基督徒有时也为达到自己的目的,放弃基督徒的原则,向社会妥协。我们很容易就说服自己“放松放松”,尤其是看到别人都在这样做的时候,我们更会这样。但是真诚的标准不是来自社会,而是来自神。因为神就是真理,我们也要与神相似,作个诚实的人。

“人的仇敌就是自己家里的人”,如何理解?
7:5-6 罪恶已影响了政府官员和整个社会。欺骗和不忠已毁坏了社会的细胞──家庭。结果惟一使百姓得洁净的路就是神的惩罚,这将把整个民族拉回到神的身边,使百姓从里到外重新复兴。

神必为他的百姓申冤,只是要等多久呢……
7:7-10 弥迦说他要等候神,因为当有需要的时候,神会垂听和救助;弥迦说神会带领百姓度过艰难岁月;弥迦说以色列要耐心经历审判,因为神要将他们带出黑暗;弥迦说他们的敌人将受到惩罚。这都显示出他个人对神的忠心(7:7),也代表了以色列的利益(7:8-10)。我们也可以同神建立一种关系,使我们能像弥迦一样有信心。这并不需要我们要有特别的才干,只要我们相信神,并愿意凭信心行事就行。

巴珊和基列在哪里?
7:14 巴珊和基列是约旦河东的一块肥沃土地,以前曾是吕便、迦得和一半玛拿西支派的疆土。

神愿意赦罪,人却不情愿认罪悔改,我当……
7:18 神非常乐于施恩怜悯人!神的赦免并非出于不情愿,我们一旦悔改神就高兴,一旦归向神,神就赦免我们。今天我们大可以向神认罪悔改,并接受神慈爱的赦免。但我们千万不要心高气傲地拒绝神这免费的礼物。

“发诚实、施慈爱”,神的应许不会变,但他对人也有要求──
7:20 在弥迦生活的时代里,宗教信仰没有给人们的生活带来甚么改变,但弥迦对百姓说,神要求百姓要有公义、怜悯和谦卑的心(6:8)。今天神也同样对每一位基督徒有这样的要求。在这不公义的世界上,我们必须施行公义;在这充满骄傲和私欲的社会中,我们必须谦卑地与神同行。我们只有按照神的旨意生活,才能开始影响我们的家庭、我们的社会和我们的世界。
