启示录19:1~16

羊羔的婚筵

1 这些事以后,我听见天上好像有一大群人大声说:“哈利路亚!救恩、荣耀、权能都属于我们的上帝,

After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting:“Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,

2 因为他的审判是真实公义的。他审判了那大淫妇,那以淫乱败坏了世界的;并且为他的仆人向淫妇伸了流血的冤。”

for true and just are his judgments. He has condemned the great prostitute who corrupted the earth by her adulteries. He has avenged on her the blood of his servants.”

3 他们再一次说:“哈利路亚!烧淫妇的烟往上冒,直到永永远远!”

And again they shouted:“Hallelujah! The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever.”

4 那二十四位长老和四个活物,就俯伏敬拜那坐在宝座上的上帝,说:“阿们!哈利路亚!”

The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God, who was seated on the throne. And they cried:“Amen, Hallelujah!”

5 接着有声音从宝座发出来,说:“所有上帝的仆人哪!凡是敬畏他的,无论大小,你们都应当赞美我们的上帝!”

Then a voice came from the throne, saying:“Praise our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, both great and small!”

6 我又听见一个声音,好像一大群人的声音,像众水的声音,又像大雷的声音,说:“哈利路亚!因为主、我们全能的上帝作王了!

Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.

7 我们要欢喜快乐,把荣耀归给他!因为羊羔的婚期到了;他的新娘也自己预备好了。

Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.

8 并且有光洁的细麻衣,赐给她穿上;这细麻衣就是圣徒的义行。”

Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.” (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.)

9 天使对我说:“你要写下来:‘被邀请赴羊羔婚筵的人有福了!’”他又对我说:“这都是上帝真实的话。”

Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.”

10 我就俯伏在天使脚前要拜他。但他对我说:“千万不可以这样!我和你,以及你那些为耶稣作见证的弟兄,都是同作仆人的。你应当敬拜上帝!因为预言的精义,就是耶稣的见证。”

At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus.”

骑白马的基督

11 我观看,见天开了。有一匹白马,那骑马的称为“忠信”和“真实”;他按着公义审判和作战。

I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war.

12 他的眼睛好像火焰,头上戴着许多皇冠,他身上写着一个名字,这名字除了他自己没有人认识。

His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.

13 他身穿一件浸过血的衣服,他的名字称为“上帝的道”。

He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.

14 天上的众军,都骑着白马,穿着洁白的细麻衣,跟随着他。

The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.

15 有一把利剑从他口中吐出来,他要用这剑击打列国,他必用铁杖治理他们;并且还要踹全能上帝烈怒的压酒池。

Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.

16 在他的衣服和大腿上,写着“万王之王,万主之主”的名号。

On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords.

当大淫妇巴比伦倾倒后,上帝完成了公义的审判,这标示着上帝的胜利,天上不断向上帝发出赞美的回响:“哈利路亚!”(1、3、4、6)就是“赞美耶和华”的意思,这是因为救恩、荣耀和权能都属乎上帝,并且祂的审判是“真实公义的”(2)。接着,羊羔的盛大婚筵展开了:“羊羔的婚期到了;他的新娘也自己预备好了”(7)。

1.婚筵的序曲(1~4:在婚筵之前,天上奏起欢乐的序曲:“哈利路亚……”所庆贺的并非个人冤屈得以伸张,而是上帝的公义得到施展,接下来二十四位长老和四活物俯伏敬拜,以“阿们!哈利路亚!”来赞美上帝的公义(4)。

2.婚筵的颂赞者(4~6a:天上众圣者,包括二十四位长老、四活物及上帝的天使众仆人,再加上众水和大雷的声音作伴奏,发出合一的赞美。

3.婚筵的歌词(6b~7a:除了“哈利路亚”,羊羔婚娶筵席中亦颂唱“哈利路亚”赞美颂,赞美“主、我们全能的上帝作王了”,表明上帝拥有统管全地的权能,为此全地的人都俯伏敬拜、尊崇祂。

4.婚筵的宣告(7b~8:天国来临,弥赛亚羊羔作王,双喜临门,真是值得大事庆贺!新郎羊羔举行婚筵,把教会这新妇带到天上,与父同享筵席!这景象代表主耶稣基督与祂的教会联合为一体,同享福乐,充分表现出基督和祂救赎的子民之间密不可分的关系。第8节强调赴婚筵者要圣洁的准备:“有光洁的细麻衣,赐给她穿上”,指向整个教会集体圣洁的见证。

5.婚筵的宾客(9~10:“被邀请赴羊羔婚筵的人有福了!”指出在教会这个蒙爱的团体中,每个基督徒都有参加这伟大婚筵的权利。亲爱的读者,也包括你我在其中。

6.婚筵的主人(11~16:弥赛亚基督以君王之姿临到,祂带着种种胜利的记号:白马、火焰、皇冠、战衣、众军、利剑、治理列国的铁杖,最重要的是祂衣服上写着:“万王之王,万主之主”,表明祂统管世上的万有,哈利路亚赞美主!


天国来临时,我们将要参加羊羔的婚筵,亲爱的读者,你预备好了吗?
