那鸿书2 Nahum

章:1 2 3

2:1 尼尼微阿,那打碎邦国的上来攻击你。你要看守保障,谨防道路,使腰强壮,大大勉力。

He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: keep the munition, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily.

2:2 耶和华复兴雅各的荣华,好像以色列的荣华一样。因为使地空虚的,已经使雅各和以色列空虚,将他们的葡萄枝毁坏了。

For the LORD hath turned away the excellency of Jacob, as the excellency of Israel: for the emptiers have emptied them out, and marred their vine branches.

2:3 他勇士的盾牌是红的,精兵都穿朱红衣服。在他预备争战的日子,战车上的钢铁闪烁如火,柏木把的枪也抡起来了。

The shield of his mighty men is made red, the valiant men are in scarlet: the chariots shall be with flaming torches in the day of his preparation, and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken.

2:4 车辆在街上(或作城外)急行,在宽阔处奔来奔去,形状如火把,飞跑如闪电。

The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall justle one against another in the broad ways: they shall seem like torches, they shall run like the lightnings.

2:5 尼尼微王招聚他的贵胄。他们步行绊跌。速上城墙,预备挡牌。

He shall recount his worthies: they shall stumble in their walk; they shall make haste to the wall thereof, and the defence shall be prepared.

2:6 河闸开放,宫殿冲没。

The gates of the rivers shall be opened, and the palace shall be dissolved.

2:7 王后蒙羞,被人掳去,宫女捶胸,哀呜如鸽。此乃命定之事。

And Huzzab shall be led away captive, she shall be brought up, and her maids shall lead her as with the voice of doves, tabering upon their breasts.

2:8 尼尼微自古以来充满人民。如同聚水的池子,现在居民却都逃跑。虽有人呼喊说,站住,站住,却无人回顾。

But Nineveh is of old like a pool of water: yet they shall flee away. Stand, stand, shall they cry; but none shall look back.

2:9 你们抢掠金银吧。因为所积蓄的无穷,华美的宝器无数。

Take ye the spoil of silver, take the spoil of gold: for there is none end of the store and glory out of all the pleasant furniture.

2:10 尼尼微现在空虚荒凉,人心消化,双膝相碰,腰都疼痛,脸都变色。

She is empty, and void, and waste: and the heart melteth, and the knees smite together, and much pain is in all loins, and the faces of them all gather blackness.

2:11 狮子的洞和少壮狮子喂养之处在哪里呢,公狮母狮小狮游行,无人惊吓之地在哪里呢。

Where is the dwelling of the lions, and the feedingplace of the young lions, where the lion, even the old lion, walked, and the lion’s whelp, and none made them afraid?

2:12 公狮为小狮撕碎许多食物,为母狮掐死活物,把撕碎的,掐死的充满它的洞穴。

The lion did tear in pieces enough for his whelps, and strangled for his lionesses, and filled his holes with prey, and his dens with ravin.

2:13 万军之耶和华说,我与你为敌,必将你的车辆焚烧成烟,刀剑也必吞灭你的少壮狮子。我必从地上除灭你所撕碎的,你使者的声音必不再听见。

Behold, I am against thee, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will burn her chariots in the smoke, and the sword shall devour thy young lions: and I will cut off thy prey from the earth, and the voice of thy messengers shall no more be heard.

那鸿书2参考

第2章所说的预言结果如何?
2章 这章经文的预言在公元前612年应验了,那时候,巴比伦及米甸的联军攻陷了这个看来坚固的尼尼微。

“雅各和以色列”,不是同一个人吗,怎么──
2:2 亚述已经夺取甚至捣毁北国以色列,并在公元前722年将其子民掳走(参王下17:3-6;18:9-11);如今亚述又攻击南国(在此作“雅各”),并强迫他们进贡。

“河闸开放”是真有其事,还是……
2:6 经文提到河闸开放,可用作形容敌人蜂拥而进,彷佛洪水决堤(1:8),或真指一次洪水泛滥。有学者指出,考古发掘出的那河闸乃是用来堵截河水的。所以,假若有大量河水积聚,河闸又被打开的话,河水便会泛滥,淹没尼尼微。

公狮、母狮──亚述,把它的洞穴充满──战利品,可怕……
2:12-3:1 亚述财富的主要来源乃是从别国抢夺回来的掳物。他们为了过奢侈的生活,掠夺无辜人的财物,以致贫者愈贫,富者愈富。这种“劫贫济富”的行为,是令神生气的罪恶。因此,作为基督徒,我们必须站稳立场,反对这种恶行。

毁灭来时再悔改,还来得及吗?
2:13 神曾给尼尼微城居民一个悔改的机会,他们也委实因听了约拿的警告而抓住这机会悔改了。但如今他们重蹈覆辙,结果带来毁灭。无论是人、城市还是国家都有一个界限,若是逾越而过,便无回头之路;亚述就是超过了这个界限,因此招来神的毁灭。所以,我们必须警戒人,趁著还有时间便当悔改。
