25雨 淋 ,水 沖 ,风 吹 ,撞着 那 房子 ,房子总不 倒塌 ,因为 根基立 在磐石 上 。
25And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
25 Verse 25. And the rain descended-floods came-winds blew] In

Judea, and in all countries in the neighbourhood of the tropics,

the rain sometimes falls in great torrents, producing rivers,

which sweep away the soil from the rocky hills; and the houses,

which are built of brick only dried in the sun, of which there are

whole villages in the east, literally melt away before those

rains, and the land-floods occasioned by them. There are three

general kinds of trials to which the followers of God are exposed;

and to which, some think, our Lord alludes here: First, those of

temporal afflictions, coming in the course of Divine Providence:

these may be likened to the torrents of rain. Secondly, those

which come from the passions of men, and which may be likened to

the impetuous rivers. Thirdly, those which come from Satan and

his angels, and which, like tempestuous whirlwinds, threaten to

carry every thing before them. He alone, whose soul is built on

the Rock of ages, stands all these shocks; and not only stands in,

but profits by them.
