Stolen water is sweet偷來的水是甜的(箴言9:17)

圖片說明: Adam
圖片版權: V.

聖經經文

“Stolen water is sweet; food eaten in secret is delicious!” (Proverbs 9:17) 偷來的水是甜的 、暗喫的餅是好的 。(箴言9:17)

意思

偷來的水代表誘惑。

來源及應用

偷來的水代表誘惑。人們往往傾向于做一些被禁的事。以亞當和夏娃為例。他們渴望吃到的偏偏是上帝唯一的禁果。 這一句話從在英文版圣經里出現後便普遍被用在文學作品里。它常喻作看似美好卻被禁的欲望。

例句

Jane: Tom was found having an extra-marital affair with his secretary. Tina: Well, stolen waters are sweet. Jane:湯姆原來與他的秘書有婚外情。Tina: 偷來的水是甜的。
