經文:以西結書第廿八、廿九章
鑰節:「我必使以色列家的角發聲。」(29:21)
提要

        廿八章的焦點集中在泰爾的君王本人,他因其城邦的財富力量而心裡高傲,以致自比為神,像許多古代國君的慣常作為(28:2、6、9)一樣。任何一個人高抬自己到這等地步的,都必被扔到最可怕的陰府去(28、8、10;參26:7~14;賽23:8~9;徒12:20~23),因為上帝絕不容許任何人搶奪祂的榮耀(賽42:8)。

        以西結用諷刺的筆法,拿泰爾王和但以理--當代最有智慧的猶太人作比較,嘲諷泰爾王屬地的智慧(28:3;參但1:20;2:48;4:18;5:11~12)。他又拿伊甸園中的亞當來形容泰爾王,他本是上帝完美的受造物(可能是嘲諷法),卻因充滿暴力的事而犯罪背叛上帝,這個王的財富太多,致使他從上帝那裡所得的美麗和智慧腐敗了,結果他就被上帝摔倒在地,如同亞當被逐出樂園一般(28:12~19)。某些人認為這個類比,也預表了撒但的墮落和受審,因為牠也被稱作世界的王和神,撒但也是因驕傲而高舉自己(賽14:13~15;弗2:2;林後4:4;啟20:10)。

        廿八章以宣告西頓受審來結束,西頓位於泰爾北方25哩,是泰爾的母城。她拜偶像的風氣嚴重影響了以色列(28:24;參猶10:6;王上11:33),特別在亞哈統治期間,他那邪惡的妻子耶洗別,就是西頓王的女兒,她把巴力崇拜帶進了以色列(王上16:31~33),導致以色列民不再尊崇耶和華上帝,至終招來全國的毀滅,並分散到異邦。尊崇耶和華是指把榮耀歸於那獨一的至聖者,並以順從祂的方式,過分別為聖的生活。本章最後的一段,應許將有團聚、平安和繁榮賜給以色列人,只是先決條件要他們在異邦中尊崇耶和華(28:25)。同樣地,今天上帝的子民也應高舉耶穌的名,對不信的人見證上帝的榮耀,直到祂帶我們進入那奇妙的國度,秉公義掌權的日子。

        廿九章起是一系列有關埃及的預言(29~32章),第一段信息發出的時間是在巴比倫人圍城一年後(29:1;比較24:1~2;王下25:1)及陷落前半年(王下25:3~8)。這段時間,巴比倫軍因要去迎擊前來的法老軍,而暫時撤走圍城的部隊,耶路撒冷因仰賴埃及(而非信靠上帝)救他們脫離巴比倫的手,引致先知耶利米強烈的抨擊(耶37:5~11)。耶利米也像以西結一樣預言埃及必被尼布甲尼撒擊敗(29:19;耶46:25~26),埃及真的只成了以色列家「蘆葦的杖」(29:6)。

        法老就跟泰爾王一樣犯了驕傲的罪,他認為自己像上帝一樣,他指稱尼羅河說:「這河是我的,是我造的。」(29:3、9)全能的上帝就定意要使法老和他的百姓,像魚在空氣中那般容易地死亡(29:4~5)。埃及人就遭遇和以色列人相似的命運,巴比倫人放逐驅散了他們,一直到四十年以後,在上帝的掌管底下,由古列王下諭准許他們和猶太人各返家園。從此,埃及再也無力重拾過去的光榮了。只是上帝的審判仍帶著一個救贖的目的,要埃及人和以色列人一樣,都能認識祂是耶和華上帝(29:16、21)。

        下一段預言是十六年後說的,約在尼布甲尼撒王三十五年時(參王下25:22、8)。上帝告訴以西結,祂要把埃及一切的豐盛賜給尼布甲尼撒,作為他摧毀泰爾的犒賞。因為他在長達十三年圍勦泰爾的戰役之後,並沒有從那裡得到甚麼酬勞可給他的軍兵(29:18~20)。同時,在以色列看到他們那根蘆杖(埃及)折斷的那天,他們將會知道,只有上帝才是他們的倚靠和幫助,他們也才會離棄偶像,這正是重建以色列的第一步(29:21)。

禱告

        主啊!今天我們願在凡事上倚靠您的引導,您是我們的力量和及時的幫助。奉主耶穌基督的名,阿們。

Scriptures:Read Ezekiel 28&29
Key Verse:"...I will cause the horn of the house of Israel to spring forth..."(Ezekiel 29:21)
Overview

        Chapter 28 continues the prophecy of judgment upon Tyre, but here it focuses upon the fall of the prince (king) of Tyre. He took all the credit and glory for the great strength and wealth of his city and its suburbs, and in his pride he had the audacity to claim divinity, as did many of the ancient monarchs (28:2, 6, 9). Anyone who elevates Himself to such a degree will surely be cast down to the Pit in the most horrible manner (28:8,10; cf. 26:7-14; Isa. 23:8-9; e.g. Acts 12:20-23 ). For the Lord God will not share with anyone the glory that is due Him alone (Isa. 42:8).

        In a sarcastic statement, Ezekiel mocked at the king's earthly wisdom by comparing him with Daniel, who at the time of Jerusalem's fall had been in Nebuchadnezzar's court for about twenty years and whose fame for his wisdom must have spread throughout the world (28:3; cf. Dan. 1:20; 2:48; 4:18; 5:11-12). Ezekiel depicts the king of Tyre as though he were Adam in the garden of Eden; the seal of God's perfect creation (likely also spoken in sarcasm) who "became filled with violence within" and sinned in rebellion against God. The king's exceedingly great prosperity corrupted the beauty and wisdom that God had given him, and he was to be cast out forever, just as Adam was cast out of paradise (28:12-19). In some respects, this analogy may typify the fall and judgment of Satan, referred to in the Bible as the prince and god of this world, who became lifted up in pride (cf. Isa.l4:13-15; Eph. 2:2; 2 Cor. 4:4; Rev. 20:10).

        Chapter 28 closes with a pronoucement of divine judgment upon Sidon, located about 25 miles north of Tyre. Sidon, the older city, was like the mother city of Tyre. Her idolatry had a harmful influence on Israel (28:24; cf. Jud. 10:6; 1 Kings 11:33), especially during the reign of Ahab, whose queen was the wicked Jezebel, the daughter of the king of Sidon; she introduced Baal worship to Israel (1 Kings 16:31-33). Because of their idolatry, the children of Israel did not hallow the Lord God, and this ultimately brought upon them their national destruction and dispersion among the nations. To hallow the Lord means to honour and glorify Him as the one and only Most Holy God and to live a sanctified life in obedience to Him. In the wonderful promise given here of restoration, peace, and prosperity for His people, it is a prerequisite that they hallow Him among the nations (28:25). Likewise, the Lord's people today must lift up the name of Jesus (hallow Him) and be witnesses of His glory to unbelievers before He will bring us into our promised inheritance in His wonderful Kingdom where He will reign with righteousness.

        Chapter 29 begins another series of prophecies, this time directed against Egypt (chs. 29-32). The first one (29:1-16) was given to Ezekiel just one year after the Babylonians had laid siege to Jerusalem (29:1; compare 24:1-2; 2 Kings. 25:1) and about six months before it's fall (2 Kings 25:3-8). At this time, the siege had been temporarily lifted when the Babylonians went to meet the approaching army of Pharoah. The people of Jerusalem had trusted in Egypt (rather than God) to save them from the Babylonians, for which the prophet Jeremiah strongly rebuked them (Jer. 37:5-11). Like Ezekiel, Jeremiah had prophesied that Egypt would be defeated by Nebuchadnezzar (29:19; Jer. 46:25-26). Egypt would surely prove to be a weak "staff of reed" to the people of Israel (29:6).

        The Pharoah, like the king of Tyre, was full of pride and was guilty of elevating himself as though he were more than a mere mortal. He not only claimed to own the Nile River but to have made it! (29:3, 9). The all-powerful Lord, however, would cause the deaths of him and his people, just as easily as sea creatures die out of water (29:4-5). The Egyptians were to suffer a fate similar to that of Israel. The Babylonians would deport and scatter many, but in the providence of God, the Egyptian exiles would return after forty years, at the time Cyrus would have issued the decree allowing the Jews and others to return to their homelands. Egypt, however, was never again to reach the heights she had attained in the past. In His judgment, the Lord had a redemptive reason: that Egypt, as well as Israel, might know that He is the Lord God (29:16, 21).

        The next prophecy was given more than sixteen years later, approximately around the thirty-fifth year of Nebuchadnezzar's reign (cf. 2 Kings 25:2, 8). It was shortly after the end of the siege on Tyre that the Lord told Ezekiel He would reward Nebuchadnezzar for the service he had done for Him in destroying Tyre. God would give him the riches of Egypt, since after the long and wearisome thirteen-year siege on Tyre, the Babylonians discovered there was no spoil in the city with which to pay the soldiers (29:18-20). Also, on the day that Israel saw their "staff of reed" (Egypt) crushed, they would learn to lean on the Lord as their source of help; this would lead them to abandon idolatry, which would be the first in a long process of strengthening (the growth of "the horn" of) Israel (29:21).

Prayer

        Lord, we lean upon You today for guidance am direction in everything we do. "You are our strength and a very present help in times of trouble.
