Feet of clay 美中不足(但以理2:33)

圖片說明: Daniel interprets the king’s dream
圖片版權: V. Gilbert and Arlisle F. Beers

聖經經文

“…its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay.” (Daniel 2:33) “Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom” (Daniel 2:34) “腿是铁的,脚是半铁半泥的。”(但以理2:33) “那脚指头,既是半铁半泥,那国也必半强半弱 。”(但以理2:42)

意思

如果某人有feet of clay,表示他們有一些美中不足的地方。

來源及應用

但以理是一位先知,長于解夢,使他名揚整個巴比倫國度。有一次巴比倫王尼布甲尼撒夢見了一座大像,這像有著金色的頭顱和半泥半鐵的雙腳。但以理預言「半泥半鐵」標志著另一個國家的誕生,而且那個國家必將半強(如鐵)和半弱(如泥)。及后證實此國便是后來興起的羅馬帝國,她分裂為十個小國,國力有強有弱。
