Hold Onto Clean Hands (Chinese/English)

JOB 17:9“Nevertheless the righteous will hold to his ways,
And he who has clean hands will grow stronger and stronger.

约伯记 179 “然而,义人要持守所行的道;手洁的人要力上加力。

Hold On To Clean Hands


 Job is one of my favorite characters in the Bible. He went through so much! Adding to that he had a difficult wife. It seems that she went the course with him as he had more children at the end!

约伯是我最喜欢的圣经人物之一。 他经历了太多。还有,他有一个难相处的妻子。看来最后她和他一起上了课,因为他最后有了更多的孩子!

 He also had the three friends. These guys were ok–until they started talking!

他还有那三个朋友。 这些家伙看上去还好……直到他们开始说话!

Do you remember what Job’s wife said to him at the end of chapter 2, “Curse God and die.”

你还记得约伯的妻子在第 2 章末尾对他说的话吗,诅咒上帝而死。

Do you remember what happened to Job at the end of the book? Although he was told off by God, the final word was that Job hadn’t sinned against God with his mouth.


 David poses a wonderful question in Psalm 24:3-5 – Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

大卫在诗篇 24 中提出了一个很好的问题:3谁能登耶和华的山?谁能站在他的圣所?4就是手洁心清,不向虚妄,起誓不怀诡诈的人。5他必蒙耶和华赐福,又蒙救他的 神使他成义。

 Job was one who could stand in the holy place of the Lord?


Why? Because he had all the attributes outlined in verse 4 above.

为什么? 因为他具有上面第 4 节中概述的所有属性。

If you have clean hands like Job had, you will grow stronger. Both Job and David were blessed by God, because their hearts were right with God.

如果你像约伯那样有一双干净的手,你就会变得更强壮。 约伯和大卫都蒙神祝福,因为他们的心与神同在。

 How clean are your hearts and hands?


 God bless you,
