圣经经文

“Stolen water is sweet; food eaten in secret is delicious!” (Proverbs 9:17) 偷來的水是甜的 、暗喫的餅是好的 。(箴言9:17)

意思

偷来的水代表诱惑。

来源及应用

偷来的水代表诱惑。人们往往倾向于做一些被禁的事。以亚当和夏娃为例。他们渴望吃到的偏偏是上帝唯一的禁果。 这一句话从在英文版圣经里出现后便普遍被用在文学作品里。它常喻作看似美好却被禁的欲望。

例句

Jane: Tom was found having an extra-marital affair with his secretary. Tina: Well, stolen waters are sweet. Jane:汤姆原来与他的秘书有婚外情。Tina: 偷來的水是甜的。
