他们都被激励
They were all encouraged

Acts 27:35-38

35 保罗说了这话,就拿起饼来,在众人面前感谢上帝,然后擘开来吃。36 于是大家都安心吃饭了。37 我们在船上的共有二百七十六人,38 大家吃饱了,把麦子拋在海里,好减轻船的负荷

35 After he said this, he took some bread and gave thanks to God in front of them all. Then he broke it and began to eat. 36 They were all encouraged and ate some food themselves.37 Altogether there were 276 of us on board. 38 When they had eaten as much as they wanted, they lightened the ship by throwing the grain into the sea.

 

重点学习

保罗的话终于打动众人。除非保罗的权柄在此刻比过去更赢得了众人的心,不然他们是不会为之动容的。经文对人数的记载更显出这神迹的奇妙,因为从人的角度来看,276个人都逃过船难,没有一人罹难是不可能的。然而正如所有不信者那样摇摆不定,他们很快就忘了这件事。

 

Lessons Learn

At last, Paul’s words got them moving. They would not have done this unless Paul’s authority had prevailed more with them now than before. The recorded number of people also makes the miracle more remarkable, since in human terms it would be impossible for 276 people to escape shipwreck without loss of life. But as all unbelievers are unstable, that persuasion soon vanished from their minds.
