Drop in the bucket桶里的一滴水(以賽亞 40:15)

聖經經文

“Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance.”(KJV)

意思

水桶的一滴,就如杯水車薪,形容事情微不足道。

來源及應用

以賽亞是以色列南部的猶太先知,當時國王是希西家。希西家王的宮殿里裝滿了金銀珠寶,香料,貴重的膏油,武器,等等其他的一切財富。以賽亞預言說他宮殿里的一切財富將會被捋到巴比倫,王位要拱手讓給巴比倫王。在萬能的上帝看來,他現在所擁有的只是像水桶里的一滴,上帝才是無所不知包羅萬象的。

例句

The scholarship is so small it is like a drop in the bucket in comparison to his tuition fees. 獎學金的金額就如水桶裡的一滴水,不足以交付學費。

Keywords
