TRUMP的耶路撒冷决定的10个圣经原因

译者注:最近美国总统特朗谱宣布美国承认耶路撒冷为以色列首都,并把美国大使馆搬到耶路撒冷。这个消息一出在全世界掀起轩然大波。以色列和犹太人是神秘的国度和民族,凡虚心研究过以色列和犹太人历史的人都很容易相信耶稣基督和圣经真实性,因为内中有太多的神迹和已经应验的圣经预言,耶和华独一真神是这一切的唯一解释。请注意,下面这篇文章是犹太拉比写的,犹太教只读旧约,大部分人不相信耶稣基督,所以文章中有些观点并不完全符合整本圣经的真理。生活在这个世代的基督徒是有福的,因为我们可以亲眼看见写在2000多年前的圣经预言在我们眼前一幕一幕的上演,感谢赞美主!

“你们的眼睛是有福的,因为可以看见;你们的耳朵是有福的,因为可以听见。我实在告诉你们,曾经有许多先知和义人想看你们所看见的,却没有看到,想听你们所听见的,却没有听到。 (马太福音 13:16-17 新译本)

10 BIBLICAL REASONS BEHIND TRUMP’S JERUSALEM DECISION

By Rabbi Tuly Weisz

This week Jews and Christian Zionists are rejoicing that President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Israel, and “the capital the Jewish people established in ancient times.” He made his remarks from a room set with a Christmas backdrop, the day before the White House Hanukkah party.

Here are 10 biblical reasons Trump made the right decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and recognize the city as Israel’s capital.

本周,犹太人和基督教犹太复国主义者很高兴,因为唐纳德·特朗普总统承认耶路撒冷是以色列国的首都,也是犹太人在古代建立的首都白宫光明节派对前一天他在一个带有圣诞节背景的房间里发表讲话

这里有十个圣经的理由,特朗普做出了将美国大使馆移到耶路撒冷并将这个城市视为以色列首都的正确决定

1) Jerusalem is mentioned more than 600 times in the Bible.

“For Zion’s sake I will not be silent and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be still” (Isaiah 62:1).

Jerusalem is referred to by name 662 times in the Bible. There is not a single mention of Jerusalem in Islam’s holy text.

1)圣经中提到耶路撒冷有六百多次。

我因锡安必不静默,为耶路撒冷必不息声,直到他的公义如光辉发出,他的救恩如明灯发亮。(以赛亚书 62:1)

耶路撒冷在圣经中被提到662次。而伊斯兰教可兰经中没有一次提到耶路撒冷

2) King David declared it 3,000 years ago.

“But I chose Jerusalem for My Name to be there, and I chose David to rule over My people Israel” (2 Chronicles 6:6).

No electoral college nor parliament elected Israel’s king. God Almighty selected David as the leader of Israel, and chose Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish kingdom, where King David ruled from for 33 years. While occupied over the centuries by numerous foreign empires, no other nation made Jerusalem its capital city besides the Jewish people. When confronted by critics of Israel’s claim to the holy city, Prime Minister Menachem Begin would retort, “We didn’t declare Jerusalem to be our capital city, King David declared it 3,000 years ago!”

2)大卫王在三千年前宣布。

但选择耶路撒冷为我名的居所,又拣选大卫治理我民以色列。 (历代志下 6:6)

既不是选举团也不是议会选举以色列的国王。全能的上帝选择了大卫作为以色列的领袖,并选择了耶路撒冷作为犹太王国的首都,大卫在那里统治了33年。 几千年来,无数外来帝国占领了以色列,但除了犹太人之外,没有任何其他国家把耶路撒冷作为首都。 面对一些有关以色列对圣城的主权的批评,总理梅纳赫姆·贝恩反驳说:“我们没有宣布耶路撒冷是我们的首都,大卫王在三千年前宣布了!”

3) The Jews have never forgotten Jerusalem.

“If I forget thee O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither” (Psalm 137:5).

“I am in the west, but my heart is in the east,” said the famous medieval Jewish poet, Judah Halevi. Even on our happiest days, we pause to reflect upon the destruction of the ancient Temple in Jerusalem. At all Jewish weddings, the groom declares from under the bridal canopy, “If I forget thee O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither,” and breaks a glass to serve as a sad reminder that no occasion is completely joyous in the absence of the Holy Temple.

3)犹太人永远不会忘记耶路撒冷。

耶路撒冷啊,要是我忘了你,愿我的右手枯萎,再也不能弹琴!(诗篇 137:5 现代译本)

著名的中世纪犹太诗人犹大·哈勒维说:“我人在西方,但我的心在东方”。 即使在我们最快乐的日子里,我们也停下来并思想耶路撒冷古圣殿的毁灭。 在所有犹太人的婚礼上,新郎从新娘的树冠下面宣布:“如果我忘了耶路撒冷,请让我的右手枯萎”,并打碎杯子,作为一个悲伤的提醒,在没有圣殿的情况下,没有任何场合是完全欢乐的。

4) The sovereign state of Israel established Jerusalem as its capital city.

“Thus said the Lord, ‘I have returned to Zion, and I have made My dwelling in the midst of Jerusalem’” (Zechariah 8:3).

The Israeli government decided that the shekel is its national currency, Hatikvah is its national anthem, and its capital city is Jerusalem. Placing an embassy in any other Israeli city denies Israel her sovereignty and is unheard of in world politics. Israel is the only country in the world where America’s Embassy is not in its functioning capital … until now.

4)以色列主权国家将耶路撒冷确立为首都。

耶和华如此说:我现在回到锡安,要住在耶路撒冷中。耶路撒冷必称为诚实的城,万军之耶和华的山必称为圣山。 (撒迦利亚书 8:3 和合本)

以色列政府决定,谢克尔是本国货币,哈捷蒂瓦是国歌,首都是耶路撒冷。 在以色列任何一个其他城市设立大使馆,都剥夺了以色列的主权,这在世界政治上是闻所未闻的。 以色列是世界上唯一一个国家,美国大使馆不设在这个国家的首都,直到现在。

5) Throughout history there has been an uninterrupted Jewish presence in Jerusalem.

“Judah will exist forever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation” (Joel 3:20).

The first epic tale of biblical heroism takes place when Abraham takes his son, Isaac, to Mount Moriah (today the Temple Mount) to offer him there as a burnt offering. That same site is where David establishes the seat of his Kingdom, where his son Solomon builds the First Temple, and after its destruction, where the Second Temple is also erected. Despite numerous attempts to exile the Jewish community from the Land of Israel, the Jews have remained faithful to Judaism’s holiest city.

5)在整个历史上,耶路撒冷都不间断的有犹太人居住。

但犹大必存到永远;耶路撒冷必存到万代。(约珥书 3:20)

当亚伯拉罕带着他的儿子以撒到摩利亚山(今天的圣殿山)把他作为燔祭献给神 时,第一个史诗般的圣经英雄主义故事就发生了。 同样的地方,大卫在那里建立他的王国,在那里他的儿子所罗门建立了第一座神殿,并在它被毁灭之后建造了第二座神殿。 尽管很多次试图将犹太人社区从以色列的土地上驱逐,但犹太人仍然忠于犹太教最神圣的城市。

6) Jerusalem is the focus of Jewish practices.

“Arise, let us ascend to Zion, to the Lord our God” (Jeremiah 31:6).

Jews make constant reference to Jerusalem in our daily blessings and prayers. At mealtimes, Jews beseech the Almighty to, “Build up the holy city of Jerusalem.” And at the conclusion of every Yom Kippur service and Passover Seder, we fervently declare, “Next year in Jerusalem!”

6)耶路撒冷是犹太人信仰实践的焦点

日子必到,以法莲山上守望的人必呼叫说:起来吧!我们可以上锡安,到耶和华—我们的 神那里去。(耶利米书 31:6)

犹太人在日常的祝福和祈祷中不断地提到耶路撒冷。 在吃饭的时候,犹太人恳求全能者“建造圣城耶路撒冷”。在每一个赎罪祭和逾越节的结束时,我们热烈地宣称:“明年在耶路撒冷!”

7) Only Israel protects the holy sites of all faiths.

“My house will be called a house of prayer for all the peoples” (Isaiah 56:7).

Even at the peak of ancient Jewish nationalism, during the times of the Temple, the priests and Levites serving in Jerusalem warmly embraced the worship and sacrificial offerings of Jew and gentile alike. Judaism does not see itself as having a monopoly on truth or being the only path to God, but rather has deep respect for all monotheistic faiths. In contrast, when Muslims controlled Jerusalem up until 1967, ancient Jewish and Christian holy sites were ransacked and disgraced. Today, the holy city flourishes once again. It is open to all religions and welcomes millions of pilgrims each year from all over the world.

7)只有以色列保护所有信仰的圣地。

我必领他们到我的圣山,使他们在祷告我的殿中喜乐。他们的燔祭和平安祭,在我坛上必蒙悦纳,因我的殿必称为万民祷告的殿。(以赛亚书 56:7)

即使在古代犹太民族主义的高峰期,在圣殿时代,在耶路撒冷服务的祭司和利未人也热烈地欢迎犹太人和异教徒的敬拜和献祭。 犹太教并不认为自己是真理的垄断者,也不是唯一通向上帝的道路(译者声明:根据圣经耶稣基督是唯一的道路),而是对所有的一神论信仰有深切的尊重。 相反,当穆斯林控制耶路撒冷直到1967年,古代的犹太教和基督教圣地被洗劫一空。 今天,圣城又一次兴盛起来。 它向所有的宗教开放,并欢迎来自世界各地的数百万朝圣者。

8) Jews worldwide pray in the direction of Jerusalem.

“May God bless you from Zion, and may you gaze upon the goodness of Jerusalem, all the days of your life” (Psalm 128:5).

Every synagogue in the world is built facing Jerusalem. Synagogues in North America are built facing east, while synagogues in Asia face west, so that whenever a Jew prays, he or she faces Jerusalem. On the other hands, Muslims, even while they are praying on the Temple Mount, turn their prayer rugs in the direction of Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Palestinians living in other parts of Israel turn their backs to Jerusalem altogether while praying.

8)全世界的犹太人向耶路撒冷方向祷告。

愿耶和华从锡安赐福给你;愿你一生一世得见 耶路撒冷的繁荣。 (诗篇 128:5 新译本)

世界上每一个犹太教堂都是朝向耶路撒冷而建的。 北美的犹太教会堂朝东,而亚洲的犹太会堂朝西,所以每当犹太人祈祷时,他或她都会面向耶路撒冷。 另一方面,穆斯林即使在圣殿山祈祷时,也将他们的祈祷毯朝沙特阿拉伯的麦加方向转。 生活在以色列其他地区的巴勒斯坦人背对耶路撒冷祈祷。

9) American law already requires the embassy to move to Jerusalem.

“Upon your walls, O Jerusalem, have I posted guardians all day and all night, continuously, they will never be silent” (Isaiah 62:6).

In 1995, the Jerusalem Embassy Relocation Act was passed by the 104th Congress by a sweeping vote of 93-5 in the Senate and 374-37 in the House of Representatives. Eighteen years ago, Congress passed a law “initiating and funding the relocation of the Embassy of the United States in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, no later than May 31, 1999.” Expressing the will of the American people, the act also called for, “Jerusalem to remain an undivided city and for it to be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel.”

9)美国法律早已经要求大使馆迁往耶路撒冷。

耶路撒冷啊!我在你的城墙上设立了守望的人;他们昼夜都不缄默;提耶和华之名的啊!你们不要静止。 (以赛亚书 62:6)

1995年,“耶路撒冷大使馆搬迁法案”在第104届国会以参议院93-5和众议院374-37压倒性优势通过。 十八年前,国会通过了一项法律,“不迟于1999年5月31日,启动并资助美国驻以色列大使馆在特拉维夫迁至耶路撒冷。”这表达了美国人民的意愿, “耶路撒冷是一个不可分割的城市,并被认为是以色列国的首都”。

10) The name Jerusalem contains a blessing for peace.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; those who love you will be serene” (Psalm 122:6).

While Palestinians are threatening three days of violence and rage, the essence of Jerusalem emerges from its sacred Hebrew name, Yerushalayim. At its core is the Hebrew word “shalom,” which has three meanings in Hebrew: hello, goodbye and peace. Shalom is the way friends greet one another; it is how Israelis answer their phones and begin emails. But, shalom is also a blessing. Peace is the most important gift we can ask from God, on an individual level, as families and between countries. It is therefore of utmost significance that the world’s holiest city, Jerusalem, has shalom at its core, because only when Jerusalem is at peace, can the whole world finally enjoy peace on earth. Let us pray that now that America has recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, we will begin to enjoy peace in the holy city.

10)耶路撒冷这个名字包含和平的祝福。

你们要为耶路撒冷求平安,说:“耶路撒冷啊!愿爱你的人都亨通。(诗篇 122:6 新译本)

虽然巴勒斯坦人正在威胁三天的暴力和愤怒,但是耶路撒冷的精髓是来自其神圣的希伯来名字Yerushalayim。 其核心是希伯来语“沙洛姆”,希伯来语有三种含义:你好,再见,和平。 沙洛姆是朋友互相问候的方式; 这是以色列人如何回答他们的电话并开始电子邮件。 但是,沙洛姆也是一个祝福。 在个人,家庭和国家层面上,和平是我们可以从上帝要求的最重要的礼物。 因此,最重要的就是世界上最神圣的城市耶路撒冷以沙洛姆为她的核心,因为只有当耶路撒冷平静的时候,全世界才能最终享有和平。 让我们祈祷,现在美国已经认识到耶路撒冷是以色列的首都,我们将开始在圣城享受和平。

哈利路亚!只有真神才敢几千年前就预言现在发生的事情!

我从起初就宣告末后的事,从古时就述说还未作成的事,说:‘我的计划必定成功,我所喜悦的,我都必作成。’ (以赛亚书 46:10 新译本)

所以我从古时就告诉了你;在事情还没有发生以前,我就说给你听了,免得你说:‘这些事是我的偶像所作的,是我的雕像和铸像所命定的。’ (以赛亚书 48:5 新译本)

除了他以外,别无拯救,因为在天下人间,没有赐下别的名,我们可以靠着得救。”(使徒行传 4:12 新译本)

“看哪!我必快来!那遵守这书上预言的人是有福的!”(启示录 22:7 新译本)
