希西家王的自私与短见 The selfishness and shortsightedness of King Hezekiah


书 39:8 Isaiah 39:8
希西家:「你所耶和甚好,因在我的年日中必有太平和固的景况。」
Then Hezekiah said to Isaiah, “This message you have given me from the Lord is good.” For the king was thinking, “At least there will be peace and security during my lifetime.”


希西家王只顾自己的生命得保纯,的年日中有太平和没有实行王的责任,保管的财宝和圣殿的宝藏。这是他的自私与短见。
King Hezekiah only cared that he had gotten his life back, and the peace and security in his lifetime; he did not carry out his duty as king to protect the treasures and military equipment in the palace and armory; and the utensils in the temple. This is his selfishness and shortsightedness. (列王 25:13-17; 2 Kings 25:13-17)
