爱的代价 - 清醒集


因为突如其来的疫情,在卡鲁的公寓里度过宅而漫长的三月。

收到了国内传教的同学的关心。有天突然想起在创世纪里读到的片段,说的是爱情。

“29:15拉班对雅各说,你虽是我的骨肉(原文作弟兄),岂可白白地服事我。请告诉我,你要什么为工价。
And Laban said unto Jacob, Because thou art my brother, shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? tell me, what shall thy wages be?
29:16拉班有两个女儿,大的名叫利亚,小的名叫拉结。
And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.
29:17利亚的眼睛没有神气,拉结却生得美貌俊秀。
Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well favoured.
29:18雅各爱拉结,就说,我愿为你小女儿拉结服事你七年。
And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter.
29:19拉班说,我把她给你,胜似给别人,你与我同住吧。
And Laban said, It is better that I give her to thee, than that I should give her to another man: abide with[…]”
“29:20雅各就为拉结服事了七年。他因为深爱拉结,就看这七年如同几天。
And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.”
