1 欺贫重富必受惩罚

2 耶和华指着自己的圣洁起誓:“看哪!对付你们的日子快到,人必用钩子把你们钩走,最后一个也必被人用鱼钩钩去。

3 你们一个一个经过城墙的破口出去,被丢弃在哈门。”这是耶和华的宣告。

4 向偶像献祭的罪“你们去伯特利犯罪,在吉甲增加过犯吧!每献上你们的祭物,每日献上你们的十分之一吧!

5 以色列人哪!把有的饼作感谢祭献上,高声宣扬你们自愿献的祭吧!这原是你们喜行的。”这是耶和华的宣告。

6 受重罚仍不悔改“虽然我使你们各城的人牙齿干净,各处都缺乏粮食;但你们仍不归向我。”这是耶和华的宣告。

7 “我曾在收割前,不降给你们;我降个城,在另个城却不降;我在块地降,另块地没有水就枯了。

8 个城的居民挤到个城去找,却没有足够的;但你们仍不归向我。”这是耶和华的宣告。

9 “我曾多次用热风和霉烂击打你们的园子和葡萄园,叫蝗虫光你们的无花果树橄榄树;但你们仍不归向我。”这是耶和华的宣告。

10 “我在你们中间降下瘟疫,正如临到埃及瘟疫一样;我用刀掉你们的年轻人,你们被掳去的马匹也遭戮;我使你们里死尸的臭气扑鼻,但你们仍不归向我。”这是耶和华的宣告。

11 “我倾覆你们,就像倾覆所多玛和蛾摩拉一样;你们像一根木柴,从火里抽出来;但你们仍不归向我。”这是耶和华的宣告。

12 “因此,以色列啊!我必这样对付你。以色列啊!因我必这样对付你,你应当预备迎见你的。”

13 看哪!他造了创造,把他的心意告诉人;他造了晨光和黑暗,他的脚踏在地的处,耶和华万军的就是他的名。


Exploring the Meaning of 阿摩司书 4      

Napsal(a) Helen Kennedy

In chapter 4 of the Book of Amos, verses 1-3 are talking about people who pervert the truths of the church. They will fall into falsities in outermost things.

In the Bible, fish represent "lower" things than mammals, so we can interpret the fishhooks in verse 2 as meaning being caught and held fast in natural or lower things.

Verses 4-6 are about acts of worship such as tithes and sacrifices. These look similar to genuine worship, but are only external sorts of things. We can tell because ‘teeth’ (in verse 6) represent ultimates or outermost things (see Secrets of Heaven 6380). It follows that “cleanness of teeth” would mean outermost things that look good but only imitate genuine worship. The Lord exhorts, “Yet you have not returned to me.”

Verses 7-8. Some things true will remain, when where there are too many false ideas, the truths don't get through. This can be seen where the Lord says, “I made it rain on one city; I withheld rain from another city... where it did not rain the part withered.” Again the Lord exhorts, “Yet you have not returned to me.”

Verse 9. Afterward all things of the church are falsified, shown by blight attacking the gardens, vineyards, fig tree and olive trees. The last three represent spiritual, natural and celestial things, or all the things of spiritual life. “Yet you have not returned to me,” says the Lord.

Verses 10-11. The Lord explains the devastating things he allowed to happen: plague in Egypt, death of young men by swords, stench in the camps, Sodom and Gomorrah. This is because they are profaned by sensual knowledges. Profanation means the mixing of good and evil together. (See Secrets of Heaven 1001[2]).

This extends to all things of the church, with the church being the Lord’s kingdom on earth (Secrets of Heaven 768[3]).

With profanation “as soon as any idea of what is holy arises, the idea of what is profane joins immediately to it,” (Secrets of Heaven 301).

Now there is hardly anything left. “Yet you have not returned to Me,” says the Lord again.

Verses 12-13: Because people adamantly remain in their profane ways, they are warned, “Prepare to meet your God!”. This is the God powerful and mighty, “who forms mountains, and creates the wind,” and even more close to home, “Who declares to man what his thought is.” As intimately a knowing as that is, the Lord’s love for all humanity is contained in His exhortations for them to turn themselves to Him.

See, for example, Luke 6:44-45, and True Christian Religion 373.

主是爱本身,以智慧本身的形式表达。爱是他的本质,也是他的全部。智慧-对如何将爱付诸行动的热爱理解-稍微有点外在,为爱提供了一种表达自我的方式。 当圣经说“耶和华”时,它代表的是至高无上的爱,这是主的本质。那爱本身就是一个完整的整体,而爱也是一个,只适用于主的名字。然而,智慧表达在各种各样的思想和观念中,这些著作统称为神的真理。也有许多虚构的神,有时天使和人也可以被称为神(耶和华说摩西将成为亚伦的神)。因此,当圣经称上帝为“上帝”时,多数情况下是指神圣的真理。 在其他情况下,“上帝”指的是所谓的神圣人类。情况是这样的: 作为人类,我们不能直接将主作为上帝的爱来参与。它太强大了,太纯净了。相反,我们必须通过神圣的真理了解他来接近他。因此,神圣的真理是人类形式的主,这是我们可以接近和理解的形式。因此,“上帝”也被用来指代人类这一方面,因为它是真理的表达。
