聖經經文

意思

Deluge可用以借喻那些大得可以壓倒一切的數目。

來源及應用

Deluge是指一場大洪災。在挪亞的時代,世界上充斥著暴力和原罪。因此,上帝命令一場巨大洪災席卷全球,奪取所有人類的生命。挪亞一家因為得到上帝的指示,建造了一艘方舟而幸免于難。這場洪水一種持續了40個日夜,將所有地球上的生命都奪走了,因此得名“大洪災”。 Deluge可用以借喻那些大得可以壓倒一切的數目。例如,IPO deluge就是指市場興旺時公司一窩蜂上市的情況。

例句

Stranded Lantau residents who remain without running water and transport services more than 48 hours after the weekend deluge say they are running out of patience with the government. 週末洪水侵襲大嶼山,困在其中的居民表示,他們已經對政府的工作失去了耐性。居民們已經在沒有自來水和公共交通設施的地區滯留超過48個小時了。
