西番雅書 2

1 勸及時悔改無恥的國民哪!你們要聚集,要聚集起來。

2 趁命令還沒有發出,日子還沒有像風前的秕一般吹過,耶和華的烈怒還沒有臨到你們,耶和華忿怒的日子還沒有臨到你們以前,你們要聚集起

3 地上所有謙卑的人,就是遵守耶和華典章的人哪!你們要尋求耶和華,你們要尋求尋求謙卑。在耶和華忿怒的日子,你們或許得以隱藏起來。

4 審判非利士因為迦薩必被拋棄,亞實基倫必成荒場,亞實突的居民必在晌被趕走;以革倫必連根拔起來。

5 在沿地帶的人,基列提的國民哪!你們有禍了。這是耶和華攻擊你們的:“非利士人之地迦南啊!我必毀滅你,使你那裡沒有人居住

6 沿的地必成為草場、牧人的洞穴、羊群的圈欄。

7 這地必歸給猶大家的餘民;他們要在那裡放牧,晚上他們躺臥在亞實基倫的房舍中;因為耶和華他們的必眷顧他們,使他們從被擄之地歸回。”

8 審判摩押與亞捫我見了摩押人的辱罵之言,見了亞捫人的毀謗之語,他們辱罵我的子民,又自誇自大侵犯他們的境界。

9 因此,萬軍之耶和華以色列的:“我指著我的永生起誓:摩押人必要像所多瑪,亞捫人必定像蛾摩拉,成為刺草和鹽坑之所,永遠荒涼之地。我餘下的子民必擄掠他們,我國中所餘的要得著他們為業。”

10 由於他們的狂傲,這事就臨到他們;因為他們自誇自大,辱罵萬軍之耶和華的子民。

11 對於他們,耶和華是可畏懼的,因為他要消滅地上一切祇;那時,列國海上的居民,都各在自己的地方敬拜他。

12 審判古實與亞述古實人哪!你們也必被我的刀所殺。

13 耶和華必伸攻擊北方,毀滅亞述,使尼尼微變成荒場,乾旱像曠野。

14 群畜和各類的走獸必躺臥在其中;鶘和箭豬棲宿在柱頂上;窗內有鳴叫的聲音,門檻上必有荒涼;因為香柏木都要暴露出來。

15 這就是那歡樂安居之城,她心裡曾:“只有我,除我以外,再沒有別的了。”現在怎麼竟成了荒場、走獸躺臥之處呢!凡從那裡經過的,都必舞嗤笑。



Exploring the Meaning of 西番雅書 2      

Napsal(a) Joe David

In Zephaniah 2:1-3, the people Zephaniah is talking to (that includes us!), need to change their ways and trust in the Lord and His Word.

In Zephaniah 2:4-7, there's a prophecy that the cities of the Philistines will come to grief and the whole area of the Mediterranean seacoast will be populated only by shepherds and their flocks, and these shepherds will be remnants from the kingdom of Judah. Here, the Philistines represent people who do evil.

In Zephaniah 2:8-10, the peoples who live around the land of Canaan, but not in it (the Moabites and Ammonites), stand for attitudes and evils that can cause temptations to good loves and true ideas. They are compared to Sodom and Gomorrah.

In Zephaniah 2:11... In the minds of people who wish to serve the Lord, those bad attitudes and evils must be destroyed, and with the Lord's help, they can be.

In Zephaniah 2:12-15, there are references to Ethiopia, Assyria, and Ninevah. When Ethiopia is referred to in a negative sense, it refers to people who use knowledges from the Word to confirm false ideas. Similarly, Assyria means reasoning from any knowledge which in this context leads to bad conclusions. And then there's Ninevah. This city means false doctrine, and these verses tell of her fate when judgement comes. Before that its people are proud of its learning, but after the Judgement, it is abandoned and empty.

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。

 For Reflection: Mixed Up Priorities
The Lord is the one and only great "I AM". But how easy it is for each of us to think "I am it"! Using quotations from the Word, reflect on giving glory to the Lord, and not to ourselves.
