Ps Jonathan Mok
2 Kings 列王紀下 13
 10 In the thirty-seventh year of Joash king of
Judah, Jehoash son of Jehoahaz became king
of Israel in Samaria, and he reigned sixteen
years. 11 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD
and did not turn away from any of the sins of
Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he had caused
Israel to commit; he continued in them.

 10 猶大王約阿施三十七年,約哈斯的兒子約阿施在
撒瑪利亞登基作以色列王十六年。
 11 他行耶和華眼中看為惡的事,不離開尼八的兒子
耶羅波安使以色列人陷在罪裡的一切罪,仍然去
行。

2 Kings 列王紀下 13
12
As for the other events of the reign of Jehoash, all
he did and his achievements, including his war
against Amaziah king of Judah, are they not written
in the book of the annals of the kings of Israel? 13
Jehoash rested with his fathers, and Jeroboam
succeeded him on the throne. Jehoash was buried
in Samaria with the kings of Israel.

12 約阿施其餘的事,凡他所行的和他與猶大王亞瑪謝
爭戰的勇力,都寫在以色列諸王記上。
13 約阿施與他列祖同睡,耶羅波安坐了他的位。約阿

施與以色列諸王一同葬在撒瑪利亞。


2 Kings 列王紀下 13
 14Now Elisha was suffering from the illness from which
he died. Jehoash king of Israel went down to see him
and wept over him. "My father! My father!" he cried.
"The chariots and horsemen of Israel!"
 15
Elisha said, "Get a bow and some arrows," and he
did so. 16 "Take the bow in your hands," he said to the
king of Israel. When he had taken it, Elisha put his
hands on the king's hands.

 14 以利沙得了必死的病,以色列王約阿施下來看他,伏在他
臉上哭泣,說:我父啊!我父啊!以色列的戰車馬兵啊!
15 以利沙對他說:你取弓箭來。王就取了弓箭來  16 又
對以色列王說:你用手拿弓。王就用手拿弓。以利沙按手
在王的手上,
2 Kings 列王紀下 13
 17"Open the east window," he said, and he
opened it. "Shoot!" Elisha said, and he shot.
"The LORD's arrow of victory, the arrow of
victory over Aram!" Elisha declared. "You will
completely destroy the Arameans at Aphek."

 17 說:你開朝東的窗戶。他就開了。以利沙說:
射箭罷!他就射箭。以利沙說:這是耶和華的得
勝箭,就是戰勝亞蘭人的箭;因為你必在亞弗攻
打亞蘭人,直到滅盡他們。

2 Kings 列王紀下 13
 18 Then he said, "Take the arrows," and the king took
them. Elisha told him, "Strike the ground." He
struck it three times and stopped. 19 The man of
God was angry with him and said, "You should
have struck the ground five or six times; then you
would have defeated Aram and completely
destroyed it. But now you will defeat it only three
times."

 18 以利沙又說:取幾枝箭來。他就取了來。以利沙
說:打地罷!他打了三次,便止住了。 19  神人向
他發怒,說:應當擊打五六次,就能攻打亞蘭人直
到滅盡;現在只能打敗亞蘭人三次。

2 Kings 列王紀下 13
 20 Elisha died and was buried.
Now Moabite raiders used to enter the country
every spring. 21 Once while some Israelites were
burying a man, suddenly they saw a band of
raiders; so they threw the man's body into Elisha's
tomb. When the body touched Elisha's bones, the
man came to life and stood up on his feet.

 20 以利沙死了,人將他葬埋。到了新年,有一群摩押
人犯境, 21 有人正葬死人,忽然看見一群人,就把
死人拋在以利沙的墳墓裡,一碰著以利沙的骸骨,
死人就復活,站起來了。
2 Kings 列王紀下 13
 25Then Jehoash son of Jehoahaz recaptured
from Ben-Hadad son of Hazael the towns he
had taken in battle from his father Jehoahaz.
Three times Jehoash defeated him, and so he
recovered the Israelite towns.

 25 從前哈薛和約阿施的父親約哈斯爭戰,攻取了
些城邑,現在約哈斯的兒子約阿施三次打敗哈薛
的兒子便哈達,就收回了以色列的城邑。

1 Peter 彼得前書 4:7 (Peter)
7 The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear
minded and self-controlled so that you can
pray. 8Above all, love each other deeply,
because love covers over a multitude of sins.
9Offer hospitality to one another without
grumbling. 10 Each one should use whatever gift
he has received to serve others, faithfully
administering God's grace in its various forms.

 7 萬物的結局近了。所以,你們要謹慎自守,儆醒禱
告。 8 最要緊的是彼此切實相愛,因為愛能遮掩許
多的罪。 9 你們要互相款待,不發怨言。 10 各人要
照所得的恩賜彼此服事,作神百般恩賜的好管家。
Colossians 歌羅西書 4 (Paul)
2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful
and thankful. 3And pray for us, too, that God
may open a door for our message, so that
we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for
which I am in chains.

2 你們要恆切禱告,在此儆醒感恩。 3 也要為我們

禱告,求神給我們開傳道的門,能以講基督的奧
祕(我為此被捆鎖)

Luke 路加福音 21
34
"Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down
with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of
life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like
a trap. 35 For it will come upon all those who live on
the face of the whole earth. 36 Be always on the
watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all
that is about to happen, and that you may be able
to stand before the Son of Man."

 34 你們要謹慎,恐怕因貪食、醉酒,並今生的思慮累
住你們的心,那日子就如同網羅忽然臨到你們; 35
因為那日子要這樣臨到全地上一切居住的人。 36 你
們要時時儆醒,常常祈求,使你們能逃避這一切要
來的事,得以站立在人子面前。
Luke 路加福音 21
 37 Each day Jesus was teaching at the temple,
and each evening he went out to spend the
night on the hill called the Mount of Olives,
38 and all the people came early in the

morning to hear him at the temple.



 37 耶穌每日在殿裡教訓人,每夜出城在一座
山,名叫橄欖山住宿。 38 眾百姓清早上聖
殿,到耶穌那裡,要聽他講道。

Matthew 馬太福音 25
 Oil in the lamps 10 virgins 十個童女的比喻

 Dictionary of Biblical Imagery:


 midnight represents the depths of the night, a time of
sleep, peace and quiet. Devotion is demonstrated
when one awakens voluntarily at midnight, while
events that disturb the night are generally
unexpected.
深夜代表著一個寧靜的時間。當人在這時自願醒著時
便代表著熱誠。夜深時所發生的是事通常也不能預料

 When a midnight event is anticipated, such as Christ’s


return, believers are called to be constantly
prepared. 當夜深時所發生的是事已經能預料到 ( 像耶
穌的再來 ) ,我們便要作好預備
