创15:6 亚伯兰信耶和华,耶和华就以此为他的义。

6 And he believed the LORD, and he counted it to him as righteousness.

年老不以记忆逞强,这句话找了好久都找不到。在TheWord上查找的时候,忘记那时候亚伯拉罕还没改名,一直查询不出来。关键字呀关键字,错一点都不行。

亚伯拉罕信神,不是信神对他的偏爱,而是相信神的公义。

今天读到创世记18章,亚伯拉罕为了所多玛的义人和神力争的故事,很有感动。他的信仰不是委曲求全的信仰,而是完全相信神的公义,相信永生神可以用公义审判全世界的信仰。佩服呀,这老头。

站立在耶和华面前。

22 二人转身离开那里,向所多玛去;但亚伯拉罕仍旧站在耶和华面前。
22 So the men turned from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the LORD.

近前来。对神提问。

23 亚伯拉罕近前来:无论善恶,你都要剿灭么?
23 Then Abraham drew near and said, “Will you indeed sweep away the righteous with the wicked?

我老头都会判断,这不是我信仰的神所为。

24 假若那城里有五十个义人,你还剿灭那地方么?不为城里这五十个义人饶恕其中的人么?
24 Suppose there are fifty righteous within the city. Will you then sweep away the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous who are in it?
25 将义人与恶人同杀,将义人与恶人一样看待,这断不是你所行的审判全地的主岂不行公义么?

25 Far be it from you to do such a thing, to put the righteous to death with the wicked, so that the righteous fare as the wicked! Far be that from you! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do what is just?”

我虽卑微,但是敢和创造世界的神争辩,因为神的标准是公义。

27 亚伯拉罕说:我虽然是灰尘,还敢对主说话。
27 Abraham answered and said, “Behold, I have undertaken to speak to the Lord, I who am but dust and ashes.

重复了6次请求。这是任何民间故事都没有的重复呀,太重复了,重复太多了,太重复了,重复得吐了。耶和华被老头烦得走了。

32 亚伯拉罕说:求主不要动怒,我再说这一次,假若在那里见有十个呢?他说:为这十个的缘故,我也不毁灭那城。

32 Then he said, “Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak again but this once. Suppose ten are found there.” He answered, “For the sake of ten I will not destroy it.”
33 耶和华与亚伯拉罕说完了话就走了;亚伯拉罕也回到自己的地方去了。

33 And the LORD went his way, when he had finished speaking to Abraham, and Abraham returned to his place.

我祷告,可以像老头一样为了公义而在神面前竭力争辩。
