A little bird told me 隔牆有耳(傳導書 10:20)

圖片說明: Bird
圖片版權: V. Gilbert and Arlisle F. Beers

聖經經文

“Do not revile the king even in your thoughts, or curse the rich in your bedroom, because a bird of the air may carry your words, and a bird on the wing may report what you say.” “你不可咒詛君王,也不可心懷此念,在你臥室也不可咒詛富戶,因為空中的鳥必傳揚這聲音;有翅膀的也必述說這事。 ”(傳導書 10:20)

意思

來源及應用

這個說法來自所羅門王后期所著的傳道書,提醒我們要謹慎言語,因為我們所說的話極有可能暗中被人收聽,猶如藉著鴿子通風報信。 “A Little Bird Told Me”也是一首歌的名字。這首歌由Harvey O. Brooks所寫且于1947年面世,在2008年被Head & Shoulders的一個英國商業廣告采用。

例句

Jane: How did you know that I am pregnant?Tina: A little bird told me. Jane:你怎知道我懷孕了?Tina: 一只小鳥告訴我。
