圣经经文

意思

Deluge可用以借喻那些大得可以压倒一切的数目。

来源及应用

Deluge是指一场大洪灾。在挪亚的时代,世界上充斥着暴力和原罪。因此,上帝命令一场巨大洪灾席卷全球,夺取所有人类的生命。挪亚一家因为得到上帝的指示,建造了一艘方舟而幸免于难。这场洪水一种持续了40个日夜,将所有地球上的生命都夺走了,因此得名“大洪灾”。 Deluge可用以借喻那些大得可以压倒一切的数目。例如,IPO deluge就是指市场兴旺时公司一窝蜂上市的情况。

例句

Stranded Lantau residents who remain without running water and transport services more than 48 hours after the weekend deluge say they are running out of patience with the government. 周末洪水侵袭大屿山,困在其中的居民表示,他们已经对政府的工作失去了耐性。居民们已经在没有自来水和公共交通设施的地区滞留超过48个小时了。
