圣经经文

“…its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay.” (Daniel 2:33) “Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom” (Daniel 2:34) “腿是铁的,脚是半铁半泥的。”(但以理2:33) “那脚指头,既是半铁半泥,那国也必半强半弱 。”(但以理2:42)

意思

如果某人有feet of clay,表示他们有一些美中不足的地方。

来源及应用

但以理是一位先知,长于解梦,使他名扬整个巴比伦国度。有一次巴比伦王尼布甲尼撒梦见了一座大像,这像有着金色的头颅和半泥半铁的双脚。但以理预言「半泥半铁」标志着另一个国家的诞生,而且那个国家必将半强(如铁)和半弱(如泥)。及后证实此国便是后来兴起的罗马帝国,她分裂为十个小国,国力有强有弱。
