圣经经文

“…a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry…” “人在日光之下,莫强如吃喝快乐……” (传道书 8:15)

意思

来源及应用

“Eat, drink and be merry”是在餐厅或休闲杂志里常见的一个短语。在酒吧里度过的欢乐时光(happy hour)就有“吃喝玩乐”的含意 。那麼,“吃喝玩乐”跟聖經有甚麼關聯呢? 这个短语记载于大卫王之子所罗门王所写的传道书里。作者是一个聪明睿智的以色列国王。他在后期创作了许多至理名言,并被收录於旧约圣经的“箴言”和“传道书”里。 他在晚年反思人生的意义,寫成了传道书。在圣经里说“人在日光之下,莫强如吃喝快乐…”,这说法容易让人认为他是一个享乐主义者和游手好闲之徒。但從更深层的意義来說,作者是把上帝賦予永生之无限,与凡人生命之有限作一對照。
