圣经经文

“All the land’s first fruits that they bring to the Lord will be yours. Everyone in your household who is ceremonially clean may eat it.”(Numbers 18:13) 凡從他們地上所帶來給耶和華初熟之物、也都要歸與你。你家中的潔淨人、都可以喫。 (民数记18:13)

意思

来源及应用

在旧约时代,以色列人收割后把初熟的庄稼用以敬奉上帝,以求得庇佑。上帝对当时的先知亚伦许诺,说:“凡从他们地上所带来给耶和华初熟之物也都要归与你。你家中的洁净人都可以吃All the land’s first fruits that they bring to the Lord will be yours. Everyone in your household who is ceremonially clean may eat it”。(民数记18:13) 这个习语沿用至今,初熟之物意旨事情初见成果。

例句
