1 不知羞耻的国民哪,你们应当聚集!趁命令没有发出,日子过去如风前的糠,耶和华的烈怒未临到你们,他发怒的日子未到以先,你们应当聚集前来。

2 a

3 世上遵守耶和华典章的谦卑人哪,你们都当寻求耶和华!当寻求谦卑,或者在耶和华发怒的日子可以隐藏起来。

4 迦萨必致见弃;亚实基伦必然荒凉。人在正午必赶出亚实突的民;以革伦也被拔出根来。

5 沿之地的基利提族有祸了!迦南非利士人之地啊,耶和华的与你反对,说:我必毁灭你,以致无人居住

6 沿之地要变为草场,其上有牧人的住处和羊群的圈。

7 这地必为犹大家剩下的人所得;他们必在那里牧放群羊,晚上必躺卧在亚实基伦的房屋中;因为耶和华─他们的必眷顾他们,使他们被掳的人归回。

8 摩押人的毁谤和亚扪人的辱骂,就是毁谤我的百姓,自夸自大,侵犯他们的境界。

9 万军之耶和华以色列的:我指着我的永生起誓:摩押必像所多玛,亚扪人必像蛾摩拉,都变为刺草、盐坑永远荒废之地。我百姓所剩下的必掳掠他们;我国中所馀剩的必得着他们的地。

10 这事临到他们是因他们骄傲,自夸自大,毁谤万军之耶和华的百姓。

11 耶和华必向他们显可畏之威,因他必叫世上的诸瘦弱。列国海的居民各在自己的地方敬拜他。

12 古实人哪,你们必被我的刀所杀。

13 耶和华必伸攻击北方,毁灭亚述,使尼尼微荒凉,又乾旱如旷野。

14 群畜,就是各国(国:或译类)的走兽必卧在其中;鹕和箭猪要宿在柱顶上。在窗户内有鸣叫的声音;门槛都必毁坏,香柏木已经露出。

15 这是素来欢乐安然居住的城,心里:惟有我,除我以外再没有别的;现在何竟荒凉成为野兽躺卧之处!凡经过的人都必摇嗤笑他。



Exploring the Meaning of 西番雅书 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.
