16.1以色列全会众从以琳起行,在出埃及后第二个月十五日到了以琳和西乃中间,汛的旷野。

16.2以色列全会众在旷野向摩西,亚伦发怨言,

16.3说,巴不得我们早死在埃及地,耶和华的手下,那时我们坐在肉锅旁边,吃得饱足。你们将我们领出来,到这旷野,是要叫这全会众都饿死啊。

16.4耶和华对摩西说,我要将粮食从天降给你们。百姓可以出去,每天收每天的分,我好试验他们遵不遵我的法度。

16.5到第六天,他们要把所收进来的预备好了,比每天所收的多一倍。

 

感谢神今日的所赐的话语。在今天的经文当中,有一个词格外引起了我的注意,那就是“试验”。这个词在圣经当中并不是第一次出现。翻看其他的章节,我们可以看到在不少的地方也用到了“试验”这个词。比如:

创世记     22:1         这些事以后,神要试验亚伯拉罕,就呼叫他说,亚伯拉罕,他说,我在这里。

出埃及记     15:25         摩西呼求耶和华,耶和华指示他一棵树。他把树丢在水里,水就变甜了。耶和华在那里为他们定了律例,典章,在那里试验他们,

我们会很奇怪神为什么要“试验”。神岂不是全知,全能,全在的神吗?神岂不是洞察人心肺腑的神吗?那么有什么事情,神不清楚,而要进行所谓的“试验”呢?感谢神,我们查看一下圣经的英文版本。以出埃及记第十六章第四节为例。

New Intl.:
Then the LORD said to Moses, "I will rain down bread from heaven for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. In this way I will test them and see whether they will follow my instructions.

King James:
Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.

New King James:
Then the LORD said to Moses, "Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you. And the people shall go out and gather a certain quota every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in My law or not.

我们发现在英文版本的圣经当中,用到了test、prove这两个词。

在牛津字典当中,test(v)是这样解释的:

test
verb [T]
1 to do something in order to discover if something is safe, works correctly, etc., or if something is present:
The manufacturers are currently testing the new engine.
They tested her blood for signs of the infection.

2 to give someone a set of questions, in order to measure their knowledge or ability:
Will you test me on the chemical formulae I've been learning?

3 If a situation tests someone, it proves how good, strong, etc. they are:
That lecture really tested my powers of endurance, it was so boring.

4 to do a medical examination of part of someone's body or of a particular physical ability

这样看来,test和我们在计算机程序开发中的含义相似,就是说,我们为了验证一样事物是否有合理属性、动作、性能而做出的一系列查错活动。查错的目的是为了排除错误,进而让该事物的属性、动作、性能达到我们的预期。

而prove是这样解释的:

prove (SHOW)
verb [T; L] proved, proved, ESP. US proven
1 to show a particular result after a period of time:
The operation proved a complete success.
The dispute over the song rights proved impossible to resolve.
[L (+ to be)] The new treatment has proved to be a disaster.

2 prove yourself to show that you are good at something:
I wish he'd stop trying to prove himself all the time.

也就是说,我们在prove一件事情的时候,代表我们有相当的把握。

感谢父神,藉着今天的经文,我们看到了你的信实。你了解一切,掌握一切,你也知道我们的心,知道我们的软弱,思念我们不过是尘土。所以当你坚立我们的时候,你要不停的试验我们,操练我们,让我们的心被你那丰盛的慈爱所洁净。慈爱的父神,我愿意遵从你的旨意,也愿意你经常的试验我,让我在耶稣基督里面,不停的靠近你,追随你。感谢我们的阿爸父神,愿你常与你的子民同在。阿门。
