Manna from heaven天賜甘露 (出埃及記16章第14節)

圖片說明: Manna
圖片版權: V.

聖經經文

意思

由于瑪拿從天而降,“manna from heaven”現在意指天降財富。

來源及應用

摩西獲上帝所揀選,帶領以色列人逃出埃及的先知。在以色列人離開埃及兩個月后,他們開始向摩西和亞倫抱怨,說摩西與亞倫不該帶他們離開埃及。因為離開埃及意味著他們在荒漠中尋不到任何食物。上帝十分憐憫以色列人,并降下了一場“面包雨”,那些從天而降的瑪拿(即食物)就像清晨降下的露珠一樣。當以色列人看到自己的土地上鋪滿了薄片時,便問個究竟。那些瑪拿看起來像一個個胡荽子,吃起來像用蜂蜜制成的薄脆餅一樣香甜。人們把它們稱作瑪拿, 它在希伯來語中意為“那是什么?”
