圣经经文

”By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise.”(Hebrews 11:9)

意思

“promised land”现在用来形容任何一片资源丰富的土地,它和“land of milk and honey(流奶与蜜之地)”有异曲同工之妙。

来源及应用

亚伯拉罕被誉为信心之父。正因为他对上帝的信心,上帝允诺给他丰厚财富、子嗣众多,以及由尼罗河至幼发拉底河的所有土地,也就是现在的以色列。

例句

American television presenter Oprah Winfrey describes her 42 acre house in California as “The Promised Land.” 美国电视节目主持人Oprah Winfrey形容她那位于加州,面积达42亩的房子为“应许之地”。
