"If l am a man of God," Elijah replied,"may fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty men!" Then the fire of God fell from heaven and consumed him and his fifty men.2Kings1:12 以利亞回答他們說：“如果我是神人，願火從天降下，把你和你的五十名手下吞滅。”於是 神的火從天降下，吞滅了五十夫長和他的五十名手下。 列 王 紀下 1:12
anneleefm: 哈巴谷書3:1哈巴谷先知的禱告,配激動的音調。2耶和華啊！我聽見你的聲音，懼怕你的作為；求你在這些年間復興，在這些年間彰顯，發怒的時候以憐憫為懷。5瘟疫在他面前行走，災病在他腳下發出。6他站立，震撼全地；他觀看，驚散列國。永在的山崩裂，長存的嶺塌陷；他的道路存到永遠。12你激憤踐踏全地，你懷怒打碎列國。Habakkuk 3:Habakkuk’s Prayer 1 prayer of Habakkuk the prophet. On shigionoth.2Lord, I have heard of your fame;I stand in awe of your deeds, O Lord.Renew them in our day,in our time make them known;in wrath remember mercy.5Plague went before him;pestilence followed his steps.6He stood, and shook the earth;he looked, and made the nations tremble. 12In wrath you strode through the earth and in anger you threshed the nations.
傳道書3:5 拋擲石頭有時，堆聚石頭有時；擁抱有時，避免擁抱有時；6 尋找有時，捨棄有時；保存有時，拋棄有時；7 撕裂有時，縫補有時；靜默有時，講話有時；8 愛有時，恨有時；戰爭有時，和平有時。Ecclesiastes 3:5a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,6a time to search and a time to give up,a time to keep and a time to throw away,7a time to tear and a time to mend,a time to be silent and a time to speak,8a time to love and a time to hate,a time for war and a time for peace.
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
9What do workers gain from their toil? 10I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. 11He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yeta no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. 12I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. 13That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God. 14I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that people will fear him.
15Whatever is has already been,
and what will be has been before;
and God will call the past to account.b
16And I saw something else under the sun:
In the place of judgment—wickedness was there,
in the place of justice—wickedness was there.
17I said to myself,
“God will bring into judgment
both the righteous and the wicked,
for there will be a time for every activity,
a time to judge every deed.”
18I also said to myself, “As for humans, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals. 19Surely the fate of human beings is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breathc ; humans have no advantage over animals. Everything is meaningless. 20All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return. 21Who knows if the human spirit rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?”
22So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work, because that is their lot. For who can bring them to see what will happen after them?
