聖經經文

“So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land in to a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey”(Exodus 3:8) “我下來是要救他們脫離埃及人的手、領他們出了那地、到美好寬闊流奶與蜜之地、就 是到迦南人、赫人、亞摩利人、比利洗人、希未人、耶布斯人之地。"(出3:8)

意思

任何資源豐富的地方。

來源及應用

以色列自然資源非常富足,有許多的羊,葡萄和蜂蜜。在圣經中,流奶與蜜之地形容蒙福之地,因此土地肥沃而豐裕。 耶和華看見了百姓在埃及作奴役所受的困苦,對先知摩西說,"我下來是要救他們脫離埃及人的手、領他們出了那地、到美好寬闊流奶與蜜之地、就 是到迦南人、赫人、亞摩利人、比利洗人、希未人、耶布斯人之地。"(出3:8) 今天,流奶與蜜之地並不單指以色列,可以是任何資源豐富的地方。早年,英國人移民美國這一片新大陸,形容此地為流奶與蜜之地。 在2004年,歌手Eliza Gilkyson 的新歌以land of milk and honey 為名,藉歌詞表達反戰和平的思想。

例句

The discovery of the new continent invoked notions of “milk and honey”. 對於發現者來說,新大陸的發現帶來了對豐饒之地的憧憬。
