圣经经文

“I have decided to put an end to all people, for the world is filled with violence because of them.” “因为地上满了他们的强暴,我要把他们和地一并毁灭。”

意思

我们称某人为“Noah”以赞扬他那种明知不可为而为之的坚定信念和勇气。

来源及应用

挪亚是亚当和夏娃第三个儿子赛特的后代。在挪亚的时代,世上充满了暴力和罪恶,但挪亚是个正直的义人,与上帝同行。一天,上帝显现在挪亚面前,说:“因为地上满了他们的强暴,我要把他们和地一并毁灭。”(创世记 6:13) 于是,上帝指派挪亚用歌斐木(柏树)建造一只方舟,一只可以容纳并供养所有种类的动物各一对的方舟。经过四十天的洪水,所有的人类都被毁灭了,仅剩下挪亚一家。对于常人来说,建造一只如此巨大的方舟实属荒唐之事,但挪亚是一个满有信心的人,他凭著坚定不移的信念,一心遵从上帝的旨意。 现在英语里有不少习语和方舟有关。out of the ark 是指一些已经过时的习俗或事物,因方舟是远古所造的。如果一件物件went out with the ark,即已经过时,不在流行了。

例句

Picture discs went out with the ark – people use compact discs or other forms of digital media these days. 这种黑胶唱片已被光碟及其他数码影音产品淘汰。
