新约 -- 哥林多后书(2 Corinthians) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

1:1 奉神旨意,作基督耶稣使徒的保罗,和兄弟提摩太,写信给在哥林多神的教会,并亚该亚遍处的众圣徒。

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia:

1:2 愿恩惠平安,从神我们的父和主耶稣基督归与你们。

Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:3 愿颂赞归与我们的主耶稣基督的父神,就是发慈悲的父,赐各样安慰的神。

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;

1:4 我们在一切患难中,他就安慰我们,叫我们能用神所赐的安慰,去安慰那遭各样患难的人。

Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

1:5 我们既多受基督的苦楚,就靠基督多得安慰。

For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.

1:6 我们受患难呢,是为叫你们得安慰得拯救。我们得安慰呢,也是为叫你们得安慰。这安慰能叫你们忍受我们所受的那样苦楚。

And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.

1:7 我们为你们所存的盼望是确定的。因为知道你们既是同受苦楚,也必同得安慰。

And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation.

1:8 弟兄们,我们不要你们不晓得,我们从前在亚细亚遭遇苦难,被压太重,力不能胜,甚至连活命的指望都绝了。

For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life:

1:9 自己心里也断定是必死的,叫我们不靠自己,只靠叫死人复活的神。

But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:

1:10 他曾救我们脱离那极大的死亡,现在仍要救我们,并且我们指望他将来还要救我们。

Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;

1:11 你们以祈祷帮助我们,好叫许多人为我们谢恩,就是为我们因许多人所得的恩。

Ye also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf.

1:12 我们所夸的,是自己的良心,见证我们凭着神的圣洁和诚实,在世为人,不靠人的聪明,乃靠神的恩惠,向你们更是这样。

For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.

1:13 我们现在写给你们的话,并不外乎你们所念的,所认识的,我也盼望你们到底还是要认识。

For we write none other things unto you, than what ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end;

1:14 正如你们已经有几分认识我们。以我们夸口,好像我们在我们主耶稣的日子,以你们夸口一样。

As also ye have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye also are ours in the day of the Lord Jesus.

1:15 我既然这样深信,就早有意到你们那里去,叫你们再得益处。

And in this confidence I was minded to come unto you before, that ye might have a second benefit;

1:16 也要从你们那里经过,往马其顿去,再从马其顿回到你们那里,叫你们给我送行往犹太去。

And to pass by you into Macedonia, and to come again out of Macedonia unto you, and of you to be brought on my way toward Judaea.

1:17 我有此意,岂是反复不定吗。我所起的意,岂是从情欲起的,叫我忽是忽非吗。

When I therefore was thus minded, did I use lightness? or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be yea yea, and nay nay?

1:18 我指着信实的神说,我们向你们所传的道,并没有是而又非的。

But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea and nay.

1:19 因为我和西拉,并提摩太,在你们中间所传神的儿子耶稣基督,总没有是而又非的,在他只有一是。

For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea.

1:20 神的应许,不论有多少,在基督都是是的,所以藉着他也都是实在的,(实在原文作阿们)叫神因我们得荣耀。

For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

1:21 那在基督里坚固我们和你们,并且膏我们的,就是神。

Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;

1:22 他又用印印了我们,并赐圣灵在我们心里作凭据。(原文作质)。

Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

1:23 我呼吁神给我的心作见证,我没有往哥林多去,是为要宽容你们。

Moreover I call God for a record upon my soul, that to spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth.

1:24 我们并不是辖管你们的信心,乃是帮助你们的快乐。因为你们凭信才站立得住。

Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.



新约 -- 哥林多后书(2 Corinthians) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

2:1 我自己定了主意,再到你们那里去,必须大家没有忧愁。

But I determined this with myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness.

2:2 倘若我叫你们忧愁,除了我叫那忧愁的人以外,谁能叫我快乐呢。

For if I make you sorry, who is he then that maketh me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me?

2:3 我曾把这事写给你们,恐怕我到的时候,应该叫我快乐的那些人,反倒叫我忧愁。我也深信,你们众人都以我的快乐为自己的快乐。

And I wrote this same unto you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice; having confidence in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all.

2:4 我先前心里难过痛苦,多多的流泪,写信给你们。不是叫你们忧愁,乃是叫你们知道我格外的疼爱你们。

For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.

2:5 若有叫人忧愁的,他不但叫我忧愁,也是叫你们众人有几分忧愁,我说几分,恐怕说得太重。

But if any have caused grief, he hath not grieved me, but in part: that I may not overcharge you all.

2:6 这样的人,受了众人的责罚,也就够了。

Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many.

2:7 倒不如赦免他,安慰他,免得他忧愁太过,甚至沉沦了。

So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow.

2:8 所以我劝你们,要向他显出坚定不移的爱心来。

Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm your love toward him.

2:9 为此我先前也写信给你们,要试验你们,看你们凡事顺从不顺从。

For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things.

2:10 你们赦免谁,我也赦免谁,我若有所赦免的,是在基督面前为你们赦免的。

To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ;

2:11 免得撒但趁着机会胜过我们。因我们并非不晓得他的诡计。

Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

2:12 我从前为基督的福音到了特罗亚,主也给我开了门。

Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ's gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord,

2:13 那时因为没有遇见兄弟提多,我心里不安,便辞别那里的人往马其顿去了。

I had no rest in my spirit, because I found not Titus my brother: but taking my leave of them, I went from thence into Macedonia.

2:14 感谢神,常帅领我们在基督里夸胜,并藉着我们在各处显扬那因认识基督而有的香气。

Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.

2:15 因为我们在婉面前,无论在得救的人身上,或灭亡的人身上,都有基督馨香之气。

For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:

2:16 在这等人,就作了死的香气叫他死。在那等人,就作了活的香气叫他活。这事谁能当得起呢。

To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?

2:17 我们不像那许多人,为利混乱神的道。乃是由于诚实,由于神,在神面前凭着基督讲道。

For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.



新约 -- 哥林多后书(2 Corinthians) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

3:1 我们岂是又举荐自己吗。岂像别人,用人的荐信给你们,或用你们的荐信给人吗。

Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you?

3:2 你们就是我们的荐信,写在我们心里,被众人所知道所念诵的。

Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:

3:3 你们明显是基督的信,藉着我们修成的。不是用墨写的,乃是用永生神的灵写的。不是写在石版上,乃是写在心版上。

Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

3:4 我们因基督所以在神面前才有这样的信心,

And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:

3:5 并不是我们凭自己能承担什么事,我们所能承担的,乃是出于神。

Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;

3:6 他叫我们能承当这新约的执事。不是凭着字句,乃是凭着精意。因为那字句是叫人死,精意是叫人活。(精意或作圣灵)。

Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

3:7 那用字刻在石头上属死的职事,尚且有荣光,甚至以色列人因摩西面上的荣光,不能定睛看他的脸。这荣光原是渐渐退去的。

But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:

3:8 何况那属灵的职事,岂不更有荣光吗。

How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?

3:9 若是定罪的职事有荣光,那称义的职事,荣光就越发大了。

For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.

3:10 那从前有荣光的,因这极大的荣光,就算不得有荣光了。

For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.

3:11 若那废掉的有荣光,这长存的就有荣光了。

For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.

3:12 我们既有这样的盼望,就大胆讲说,

Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:

3:13 不像摩西将帕子蒙在脸上,叫以色列人不能定睛看到那将废者的结局。

And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:

3:14 但他们的心地刚硬。直到今日诵读旧约的时候,这帕子还没有揭去。这帕子在基督里已经废去了。

But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.

3:15 然而直到今日,每逢诵读摩西书的时候,帕子还在他们心上。

But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.

3:16 但他们的心几时归向主,帕子就几时除去了。

Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.

3:17 主就是那灵。主的灵在那里,那里就得以自由。

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

3:18 我们众人既然倘着脸,得以看见主的荣光,好像从镜子里反照,就变成主的形状,荣上加荣,如同从主的灵变成的。

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the LORD.



新约 -- 哥林多后书(2 Corinthians) -- 第 4 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

4:1 我们既然蒙怜悯,受了这职分,就不丧胆。

Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;

4:2 乃将那些暗昧可耻的事弃绝了,不行诡诈,不谬称神的道理。只将真理表明出来,好在神面前把自己荐与各人的良心。

But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.

4:3 如果我们的福音蒙蔽,就是蒙蔽在灭亡的人身上。

But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

4:4 此等不信之人,被这世界的神弄瞎了心眼,不叫基督荣耀福音的光照着他们。基督本是神的像。

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

4:5 我们原不是传自己,乃是传基督耶稣为主,并且自己因耶稣作你们的仆人。

For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.

4:6 那吩咐光从黑暗里照出来的神,已经照在我们心里,叫我们得知神荣耀的光,显在耶稣基督的面上。

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

4:7 我们有这宝贝放在瓦器里,要显明这莫大的力,是出于神,不是出于我们。

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

4:8 我们四面受敌,却不被困住。心里作难,却不至失望。

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

4:9 遭逼迫,却不被丢弃。打倒了,却不至死亡。

Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

4:10 身上常带着耶稣的死,使耶稣的生,也显明在我们身上。

Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

4:11 因为我们这活着的人,是常为耶稣被交于死地,使耶稣的生,在我们这必死的身上显明出来,

For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

4:12 这样看来,死是在我们身上发动,生却在你们身上发动。

So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

4:13 但我们既有信心,正如经上记着说,我因信,所以如此说话。我们也信,所以也说话。

We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;

4:14 自己知道,那叫主耶稣复活的,也必叫我们与耶稣一同复活,并且叫我们与你们一同站在他面前。

Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.

4:15 凡事都是为你们,好叫恩惠因人多越发加增,感谢格外显多,以致荣耀归与神。

For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.

4:16 所以我们不丧胆。外体虽然毁坏,内心却一天新似一天。

For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

4:17 我们这至暂至轻的苦楚,要为我们成就极重无比永远的荣耀。

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

4:18 原来我们不是顾念所见的,乃是顾念所不见的。因为所见的是暂时的,所不见的是永远的。

While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.



新约 -- 哥林多后书(2 Corinthians) -- 第 5 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

5:1 我们原知道,我们这地上的帐棚若拆毁了,必得神所造,不是人手所造,在天上永存的房屋。

For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

5:2 我们在这帐棚里叹息,深想得那从天上来的房屋,好像穿上衣服。

For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

5:3 倘若穿上,被遇见的时候就不至于赤身了。

If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

5:4 我们在这帐棚里,叹息劳苦,并非愿意脱下这个,乃是愿意穿上那个,好叫这必死的被生命吞灭了。

For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

5:5 为此培植我们的就是神,他又赐给我们圣灵作凭据。(原文作质)。

Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.

5:6 所以我们时常坦然无惧,并且晓得我们住在身内,便与主相离。

Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:

5:7 因我们行事为人,是凭着信心,不是凭着眼见。

(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

5:8 我们坦然无惧,是更愿意离开身体与主同住。

We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

5:9 所以无论是住在身内,离开身外,我们立了志向,要得主的喜悦。

Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.

5:10 因为我们众人,必要在基督台前显露出来,叫各人按着本身所行的,或善或恶受报。

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

5:11 我们既知道主是可畏的,所以劝人,但我们在神面前是显明的,盼望在你们的良心里,也是显明的。

Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.

5:12 我们不是向你们再举荐自己,乃是叫你们因我们有可夸之处,好对那凭外貌不凭内心夸口的人,有言可答。

For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart.

5:13 我们若果颠狂,是为神。若果谨守,是为你们。

For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.

5:14 原来基督的爱激励我们。因我们想一人既替众人死,众人就都死了。

For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:

5:15 并且他替众人死,是叫那些活着的人,不再为自己活,乃为替他们死而复活的主活。

And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.

5:16 所以我们从今以后,不凭着外貌(原文作肉体本节同)认人了。虽然凭着外貌认过基督,如今不再这样认他了。

Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.

5:17 若有人在基督里,他就是新造的人。旧事已过,都变成新的了。

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

5:18 一切都是出于神,他藉着基督使我们与他和好,又将劝人与他和好的职分赐给我们。

And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

5:19 这就是神在基督里叫世人与自己和好,不将他们的过犯归到他们身上。并且将这和好的道理托付了我们。

To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

5:20 所以我们作基督的使者,就好像神藉我们劝你们一般。我们替基督求你们与神和好。

Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.

5:21 神使那无罪的(无罪原文作不知罪),替我们成为罪。好叫我们在他里面成为神的义。

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.



新约 -- 哥林多后书(2 Corinthians) -- 第 6 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

6:1 我们与神同工的,也劝你们,不可徒受他的恩典。

We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.

6:2 因为他说,在悦纳的时候,我应允了你。在拯救的日子,我搭救了你。看哪,现在正是悦纳的时候,现在正是拯救的日子。

(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

6:3 我们凡事都不叫人有妨碍,免得这职分被人毁谤。

Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:

6:4 反倒在各样的事上,表明自己是神的用人,就如在许多的忍耐,患难,穷乏,困苦,

But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,

6:5 鞭打,监禁,扰乱,勤劳,儆醒,不食,

In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;

6:6 廉洁,知识,恒忍,恩慈,圣灵的感化,无伪的爱心,

By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,

6:7 真实的道理,神的大能。仁义的兵器在左在右。

By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

6:8 荣耀羞辱,恶名美名。似乎是诱惑人的,却是诚实的。

By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;

6:9 似乎不为人所知,却是人所共知的。似乎要死却是活着的。似乎受责罚,却是不至丧命的。

As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;

6:10 似乎忧愁,却是常常快乐的。似乎贫穷,却是叫许多人富足的。似乎一无所有,却是样样都有的。

As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

6:11 哥林多人哪,我们向你们,口是张开的,心是宽宏的。

O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged.

6:12 你们狭窄,原不在乎我们,是在乎自己的心肠狭窄。

Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own bowels.

6:13 你们也要用宽宏的心报答我。我这话升像对自己的孩子说的。

Now for a recompence in the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be ye also enlarged.

6:14 你们和不信的原不相配,不要同负一轭。义和不义有什么相交呢。光明和黑暗有什么相通呢。

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

6:15 基督和彼列(彼列就是撒但的别名)有什么相和呢。信主的和不信主的有什么相干呢。

And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

6:16 神的殿和偶像有什么相同呢。因为我们是永生神的殿。就如神曾说,我要在他们中间居住,在他们中间来往。我要作他们的神,他们要作我的子民。

And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

6:17 又说,你们务要从他们中间出来,与他们分别,不要沾不洁净的物,我就收纳你们。

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

6:18 我要作你们的父,你们要作我的儿女。这是全能的主说的。

And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.



新约 -- 哥林多后书(2 Corinthians) -- 第 7 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

7:1 亲爱的弟兄阿,我们既有这等应许,就当洁净自己,除去身体灵魂一切的污秽,敬畏神,得以成圣。

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

7:2 你们要心地宽大收纳我们。我们未曾亏负谁,未曾败坏谁,未曾占谁的便宜。

Receive us; we have wronged no man, we have corrupted no man, we have defrauded no man.

7:3 我说这话,不是要定你们的罪。我已经说过,你们常在我们心里,情愿与你们同生同死。

I speak not this to condemn you: for I have said before, that ye are in our hearts to die and live with you.

7:4 我大大的放胆向你们说话。我因你们多多夸口,满得安慰。我们在一切患难中分外的快乐。

Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my glorying of you: I am filled with comfort, I am exceeding joyful in all our tribulation.

7:5 我们从前就是到了马其顿的时候,身体也不得安宁,周围遭患难,外有争战,内有惧怕。

For, when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears.

7:6 但那安慰丧气之人的神,藉着提多来安慰了我们。

Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus;

7:7 不但藉着他来,也藉着他从你们所得的安慰,安慰了我们。因他把你们的想念,哀恸,和向我的热心,都告诉了我,叫我更加欢喜。

And not by his coming only, but by the consolation wherewith he was comforted in you, when he told us your earnest desire, your mourning, your fervent mind toward me; so that I rejoiced the more.

7:8 我先前写信叫你们忧愁。我后来虽然懊悔,如今却不懊悔。因我知道那信叫你们忧愁,不过是暂时的。

For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though it were but for a season.

7:9 如今我欢喜,不是因你们忧愁,是因你们从忧愁中生出懊悔来。你们依着神的意思忧愁,凡事就不至于因我们受亏损了。

Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing.

7:10 因为依着神的意思忧愁,就生出没有后悔的懊悔来,以致得救。但世俗的忧愁,是叫人死。

For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

7:11 你看,你们依着神的意思忧愁,从此就生出何等的殷勤,自诉,自恨,恐惧,想念,热心,责罚(或作自责),在这一切事上你们都表明自己是洁净的。

For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.

7:12 我虽然从前写信给你们却不是为那亏负人的,也不是为那受人亏负的,乃要在神面前,把你们顾念我们的热心,表明出来。

Wherefore, though I wrote unto you, I did it not for his cause that had done the wrong, nor for his cause that suffered wrong, but that our care for you in the sight of God might appear unto you.

7:13 故此我们得了安慰,并且在安慰之中,因你们众人使提多心里畅快欢喜,我们就更加欢喜了。

Therefore we were comforted in your comfort: yea, and exceedingly the more joyed we for the joy of Titus, because his spirit was refreshed by you all.

7:14 我若对提多夸奖了你们什么,也觉得没有惭愧。因我对提多夸奖你们的话,成了真的。正如我对你们所说的话,也都是真的。

For if I have boasted any thing to him of you, I am not ashamed; but as we spake all things to you in truth, even so our boasting, which I made before Titus, is found a truth.

7:15 并且提多想起你们众人的顺服,是怎样恐惧战竞的接待他,他爱你们的心肠就越发热了。

And his inward affection is more abundant toward you, whilst he remembereth the obedience of you all, how with fear and trembling ye received him.

7:16 我如今欢喜,能在凡事上为你们放心。

I rejoice therefore that I have confidence in you in all things.



新约 -- 哥林多后书(2 Corinthians) -- 第 8 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

8:1 弟兄们,我把神赐给马其顿众教会的恩告诉你们。

Moreover, brethren, we do you to wit of the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia;

8:2 就是他们在患难中受大试炼的时候,仍有满足的快乐,在极穷之间,还格外显出他们乐捐的厚恩。

How that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality.

8:3 我可以证明他们是按着力量,而且也过了力量,自己甘心乐意的捐助。

For to their power, I bear record, yea, and beyond their power they were willing of themselves;

8:4 再三的求我们,准他们在这供给圣徒的恩情上有分。

Praying us with much intreaty that we would receive the gift, and take upon us the fellowship of the ministering to the saints.

8:5 并且他们所作的,不但照我们所想望的,更照神的旨意,先把自己献给主,又归附了我们。

And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God.

8:6 因此我劝提多,既然在你们中间开办这慈惠的事,就当办成了。

Insomuch that we desired Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also finish in you the same grace also.

8:7 你们既然在信心,口才,知识,热心,和待我们的爱心上,都格外显出满足来,就当在这慈惠的事上,也格外显出满足来。

Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also.

8:8 我说这话,不是吩咐你们,乃是藉着别人的热心,试验你们爱心的实在。

I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the forwardness of others, and to prove the sincerity of your love.

8:9 你们知道我们主耶稣基督的恩典。他本来富足,却为你们成了贫穷,叫你们因他的贫穷,可以成为富足。

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.

8:10 我在这事上把我的意见告诉你们,是与你们有益。因为你们下手办这事,而且起此心意,已经有一年了。

And herein I give my advice: for this is expedient for you, who have begun before, not only to do, but also to be forward a year ago.

8:11 如今就当办成这事。既有愿作的心,也当照你们所有的去办成。

Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have.

8:12 因为人若有愿作的心,比蒙悦纳,乃是照他所有的,并不是照他所无的。

For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.

8:13 我原不是要别人轻省,你们受累,

For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:

8:14 乃要均平。就是要你们的富馀,现在可以补他们的不足,使他们的富馀,将来也可以补你们的不足,这就均平了。

But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:

8:15 如经上所记,多收的也没有馀,少收的也没有缺。

As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack.

8:16 多谢神,感动提多的心,叫他待你们殷勤,像我一样。

But thanks be to God, which put the same earnest care into the heart of Titus for you.

8:17 他固然是听了我的劝。但自己更是热心,情愿往你们那里去。

For indeed he accepted the exhortation; but being more forward, of his own accord he went unto you.

8:18 我们还打发一位兄弟和他同去。这人在福音上得了众教会的称赞。

And we have sent with him the brother, whose praise is in the gospel throughout all the churches;

8:19 不但这样,他也被众教会挑选,和我们同行,把所托与我们的捐赀送到了,可以荣耀主,又表明我们乐意的心。

And not that only, but who was also chosen of the churches to travel with us with this grace, which is administered by us to the glory of the same Lord, and declaration of your ready mind:

8:20 这就免得有人因我们收的捐银很多,就挑我们的不是。

Avoiding this, that no man should blame us in this abundance which is administered by us:

8:21 我们留心行光明的事,不但在主面前,就在人面前,也是这样。

Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.

8:22 我们又打发一位兄弟同去。这人的热心,我们在许多事上,屡次试验过,现在他因为深信你们,就更加热心了。

And we have sent with them our brother, whom we have oftentimes proved diligent in many things, but now much more diligent, upon the great confidence which I have in you.

8:23 论到提多,他是我的同伴,一同为你们劳碌的。论到那两位兄弟,他们是教会的使者,是基督的荣耀。

Whether any do enquire of Titus, he is my partner and fellowhelper concerning you: or our brethren be enquired of, they are the messengers of the churches, and the glory of Christ.

8:24 所以你们务要在众教会面前,显明你们爱心的凭据,并我所夸奖你们的凭据。

Wherefore shew ye to them, and before the churches, the proof of your love, and of our boasting on your behalf.



新约 -- 哥林多后书(2 Corinthians) -- 第 9 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

9:1 论到供给圣徒的事,我不必写信给你们。

For as touching the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you:

9:2 因为我知道你们乐意的心,常对马其顿人夸奖你们,说亚该亚人豫备好了,已经有一年了。并且你们的热心激动了许多人。

For I know the forwardness of your mind, for which I boast of you to them of Macedonia, that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal hath provoked very many.

9:3 但我打发那几位弟兄去,要叫你们照我的话豫备妥当。免得我们在这事上夸奖你们的话落了空。

Yet have I sent the brethren, lest our boasting of you should be in vain in this behalf; that, as I said, ye may be ready:

9:4 万一有马其顿人与我同去,见你们没有豫备,就叫我们所确信的,反成了羞愧。你们羞愧,更不用说了。

Lest haply if they of Macedonia come with me, and find you unprepared, we (that we say not, ye) should be ashamed in this same confident boasting.

9:5 因此我想不得不求那几位弟兄,先到你们那里去,把从前所应许的捐赀,豫备妥当,就显出你们所捐的,是出于乐意,不是出于勉强。

Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren, that they would go before unto you, and make up beforehand your bounty, whereof ye had notice before, that the same might be ready, as a matter of bounty, and not as of covetousness.

9:6 少种的少收,多种的多收。这话是真的。

But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.

9:7 各人要随本心所酌定的。不要作难,不要勉强,因为捐得乐意的人,是神所喜爱的。

Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

9:8 神能将各样的恩惠,多多的加给你们。使你们凡事常常充足,能行各样的善事。

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

9:9 如经上所记,他施舍钱财,周济贫穷。他的仁义存到永远。

(As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.

9:10 那赐种给撒种的,赐粮给人吃的,必多多加给你们种地的种子,又增添你们仁义的果子。

Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)

9:11 叫你们凡事富足,可以多多施舍,就藉着我们使感谢归于神。

Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.

9:12 因为办这供给的事,不但补圣徒的缺乏,而且叫许多人越发感谢神。

For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God;

9:13 他们从这供给的事上得了凭据,知道你们承认基督顺服他的福音,多多的捐钱给他们和众人,便将荣耀归与神。

Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men;

9:14 他们也因神极大的恩赐,显在你们心里,就切切的想念你们,为你们祈祷。

And by their prayer for you, which long after you for the exceeding grace of God in you.

9:15 感谢神,因他有说不尽的恩赐。

Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.



新约 -- 哥林多后书(2 Corinthians) -- 第 10 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

10:1 我保罗就是与你们见面的时候是谦卑的,不在你们那里的时候向你们是勇敢的,如今亲自藉着基督的温柔和平,劝你们。

Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence am base among you, but being absent am bold toward you:

10:2 有人以为我是凭着血气行事,我也以为必须用勇敢待这等人,求你们不要叫我在你们那里的时候,有这样的勇敢。

But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh.

10:3 因为我们虽然在血气中行事,却不凭着血气争战。

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

10:4 我们争战的兵器,本不是属血气的,乃是在神面前有能力可以攻破坚固的营垒,

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

10:5 将各样的计谋,各样拦阻人认识神的那些自高之事,一概攻破了,又将人所有的心意夺回,使他都顺服基督。

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

10:6 并且我已经豫备好了,等你们十分顺服的时候,要责罚那一切不顺服的人。

And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

10:7 你们是看眼前的吗。倘若有人自信是属基督的,他要再想想,他如何属基督,我们也是如何属基督的。

Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? If any man trust to himself that he is Christ's, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ's, even so are we Christ's.

10:8 主赐给我们权柄是要造就你们,并不是要败坏你们。我就是为这权柄稍微夸口,也不至于惭愧。

For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the Lord hath given us for edification, and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed:

10:9 我说这话免得你们以为我写信是要威吓你们。

That I may not seem as if I would terrify you by letters.

10:10 因为有人说,他的信,又沉重,又利害。及至见面,却是气貌不扬,言语粗俗的。

For his letters, say they, are weighty and powerful; but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible.

10:11 这等人当想,我们不在那里的时候,信上的言语如何,见面的时候,行事也必如何。

Let such an one think this, that, such as we are in word by letters when we are absent, such will we be also in deed when we are present.

10:12 因为我们不敢将自己和那自荐的人同列相比。他们用自己度量自己,用自己比较自己,乃是不通达的。

For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

10:13 我们不愿意分外夸口,只要照神所量给我们的界限,构到你们那里。

But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to the measure of the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you.

10:14 我们并非过了自己的界限,好像构不到你们那里。因为我们早到你们那里,传了基督的福音。

For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we reached not unto you: for we are come as far as to you also in preaching the gospel of Christ:

10:15 我们不仗着别人所劳碌的,分外夸口。但指望你们信心增长的时候,所量给我们的界限,就可以因着你们更加开展,

Not boasting of things without our measure, that is, of other men's labours; but having hope, when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule abundantly,

10:16 得以将福音传到你们以外的地方,并不是在别人界限之内,藉着他现成的事夸口。

To preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man's line of things made ready to our hand.

10:17 但夸口的当指着主夸口。

But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

10:18 因为蒙悦纳的,不是自己称许的,乃是主所称许的。

For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth.



新约 -- 哥林多后书(2 Corinthians) -- 第 11 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

11:1 但愿你们宽容我这一点愚妄。其实你们原是宽容我的。

Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me.

11:2 我为你们起的愤恨,原是神那样的愤恨。因为我曾把你们许配一个丈夫,要把你们如同贞洁的童女,献给基督。

For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

11:3 我只怕你们的心或偏于邪,失去那向基督所存纯一清洁的心,就像蛇用诡诈诱惑了夏娃一样。

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

11:4 假如有人来,另传一个耶稣,不是我们所传过的。或着你们另受一个灵,不是你们所受过的。或者另得一个福音,不是你们所得过的。你们容让他也就吧了。

For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

11:5 但我想,我一点不在那些最大的使徒以下。

For I suppose I was not a whit behind the very chiefest apostles.

11:6 我的言语虽然粗俗,我的知识却不粗俗。这是我们在凡事上,向你们众人显明出来的。

But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.

11:7 我因为白白传神的福音给你们,就自居卑微,叫你们高升,这算是我犯罪吗。

Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?

11:8 我亏负了别的教会,向他们取了工价来,给你们效力。

I robbed other churches, taking wages of them, to do you service.

11:9 我在你们那里缺乏的时候,并没有累着你们一个人。因我所缺乏的,那从马其顿来的弟兄们都补足了。我向来凡事谨守,后来也必谨守,总不至于累着你们。

And when I was present with you, and wanted, I was chargeable to no man: for that which was lacking to me the brethren which came from Macedonia supplied: and in all things I have kept myself from being burdensome unto you, and so will I keep myself.

11:10 既有基督的诚实在我里面,就无人能在亚该亚一带地方阻挡我这自夸。

As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of this boasting in the regions of Achaia.

11:11 为什么呢。是因我不爱你们吗。这有神知道。

Wherefore? because I love you not? God knoweth.

11:12 我现在所作的,后来还要作,为要断绝那些寻机会人的机会,使他们在所夸的事上,也不过与我们一样。

But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we.

11:13 那等人是假使徒,行事诡诈,装作基督使徒的模样。

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

11:14 这也不足为怪。因为连撒但也装作光明的天使。

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

11:15 所以他的差役,若装作仁义的差役,也不算希奇。他们的结局,必然照着他们的行为。

Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

11:16 我再说,人不可把我看作愚妄的。纵然如此,也要把我当作愚妄人接纳,叫我可以略略自夸。

I say again, Let no man think me a fool; if otherwise, yet as a fool receive me, that I may boast myself a little.

11:17 我说的话,不是奉主命说的,乃是像愚妄人放胆自夸。

That which I speak, I speak it not after the Lord, but as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting.

11:18 既有好些人凭着血气自夸,我也要自夸了。

Seeing that many glory after the flesh, I will glory also.

11:19 你们既是精明的人,就能甘心忍耐愚妄人。

For ye suffer fools gladly, seeing ye yourselves are wise.

11:20 假若有人强你们作奴仆,或侵吞你们,或掳掠你们,或悔慢你们,或打你们的脸,你们都能忍耐他。

For ye suffer, if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take of you, if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face.

11:21 我说这话,是羞辱自己。好像我们从前是软弱的。然而人在何事上勇敢,(我说句愚妄话)我也勇敢。

I speak as concerning reproach, as though we had been weak. Howbeit whereinsoever any is bold, (I speak foolishly,) I am bold also.

11:22 他们是希伯来人吗。我也是。他们是以色列人吗。我也是。他们是亚伯拉罕的后裔吗。我也是。

Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so am I.

11:23 他们是基督的仆人吗。(我说句狂话)我更是。

Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.

11:24 我比他们多受劳苦,多下监牢,受鞭打是过重的,冒死是屡次有的。被犹太人鞭打五次,每次四十,减去一下。

Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.

11:25 被棍打了三次,被石头打了一次,遇着船坏三次,一昼一夜在深海里。

Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;

11:26 又屡次行远路,遭江河的危险,盗贼的危险,同族的危险,外邦人的危险,城里的危险,旷野的危险,海中的危险,假弟兄的危险。

In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;

11:27 受劳碌,受困苦,多次不得睡,又饥又渴,多次不得食。受寒冷,赤身露体。

In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.

11:28 除了这外面的事,还有为众教会挂心的事,天天压在我身上。

Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.

11:29 有谁软弱,我不软弱呢,有谁跌倒,我不焦急呢。

Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not?

11:30 我若必须自夸,就夸那关乎我软弱的事便了。

If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities.

11:31 那永远可称颂之主耶稣的父神,知道我不说谎。

The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.

11:32 在大马士革亚哩达王手下的提督,把守大马士革城要捉拿我。

In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king kept the city of the Damascenes with a garrison, desirous to apprehend me:

11:33 我就从窗户中,在筐子里从城墙上被人缒下去,脱离了他的手。

And through a window in a basket was I let down by the wall, and escaped his hands.



新约 -- 哥林多后书(2 Corinthians) -- 第 12 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

12:1 我自夸固然无益,但我是不得已的。如今我要说到主的显现和启示。

It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.

12:2 我认得一个在基督里的人,他前十四年被提到第三层天上去。或在身内,我不知道。或在身外,我也不知道。只有神知道。

I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.

12:3 我认得这人,或在身内,或在身外,我都不知道。只有神知道。

And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)

12:4 他被提到乐园里,听到隐秘的言语,是人不可说的。

How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

12:5 为这人,我要夸口。但是为我自己,除了我的软弱以外,我并不夸口。

Of such an one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities.

12:6 我就是愿意夸口,也不算狂。因为我必说实话。只是我禁止不说,恐怕有人把我看高了,过于他在我身上所看见所听见的。

For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be, or that he heareth of me.

12:7 又恐怕我因所得的启示甚大,就过于自高,所以有一根刺加在我肉体上,就是撒但的差役,要攻击我,免得我过于自高。

And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

12:8 为这事,我三次求过主,叫这刺离开我。

For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.

12:9 他对我说,我的恩典够你用的。因为我的能力,是在人的软弱上显得完全。所以我更喜欢夸自己的软弱,好叫基督的能力覆庇我。

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

12:10 我为基督的缘故,就以软弱,凌辱,急难,逼迫,困苦,为可喜乐的。因我什么时候软弱,什么时候就刚强了。

Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

12:11 我成了愚妄人,是被你们强逼的。我本该被你们称许才是。我算不了什么,却没有一件事在那些最大的使徒以下。

I am become a fool in glorying; ye have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest apostles, though I be nothing.

12:12 我在你们中间,用百般的忍耐,藉着神迹奇事异能,显出使徒的凭据来。

Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.

12:13 除了我不累着你们这一件事,你们还有什么事不及别的教会呢。这不公之处,求你们饶恕我吧。

For what is it wherein ye were inferior to other churches, except it be that I myself was not burdensome to you? forgive me this wrong.

12:14 如今我打算第三次到你们那里去,也必不累着你们,因我所求的是你们,不是你们的财物。儿女不该为父母积财,父母该为儿女积财。

Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours, but you: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.

12:15 我也甘心乐意为你们的灵魂费财费力。难道我越发爱你们,就越发少得你们的爱吗。

And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.

12:16 吧了,我自己并没有累着你们,你们却有人说,我是诡诈,用心计牢笼你们。

But be it so, I did not burden you: nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with guile.

12:17 我所差到你们那里去的人,我藉着他们一个人占过你们的便宜吗。

Did I make a gain of you by any of them whom I sent unto you?

12:18 我劝了提多到你们那里去,又差那位兄弟与他同去。提多占过你们的便宜吗。我们行事,不同是一个心灵吗。不同是一个脚踪吗。(心灵或作圣灵)。

I desired Titus, and with him I sent a brother. Did Titus make a gain of you? walked we not in the same spirit? walked we not in the same steps?

12:19 你们到如今,还想我们是向你们分诉。我们本是在基督里当神面前说话。亲爱的弟兄阿,一切的事,都是为造就你们。

Again, think ye that we excuse ourselves unto you? we speak before God in Christ: but we do all things, dearly beloved, for your edifying.

12:20 我怕我再来的时候,见你们不合我所想望的,你们见我也不合你们所想望的。又怕有分争,嫉妒,恼怒,结党,毁谤,才言,狂傲,混乱的事。

For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults:

12:21 且怕我来的时候,我的神叫我在你们面前渐愧。又因许多人从前犯罪,行污秽奸淫邪荡的事,不肯悔改,我就忧愁。

And lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and that I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness which they have committed.



新约 -- 哥林多后书(2 Corinthians) -- 第 13 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

13:1 这是我第三次要到你们那里去。凭两三个人的口作见证,句句都要定准。

This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.

13:2 我从前说过,如今不在你们那里又说,正如我第二次见你们的时候所说的一样,就是对那犯罪的,和其馀的人说,我若再来必不宽容。

I told you before, and foretell you, as if I were present, the second time; and being absent now I write to them which heretofore have sinned, and to all other, that, if I come again, I will not spare:

13:3 你们既然寻求基督在我里面说话的凭据,我必不宽容因为基督在你们身上,不是软弱的。在你们里面,是有大能的。

Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you.

13:4 他因软弱被钉在十字架上,却因神的大能,仍然活着。我们也是这样同他软弱,但因神向你们所显的大能,也必与他同活。

For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.

13:5 你们总要自己省察有信心没有。也要自己试验。岂不知你们若不是可弃绝的,就有耶稣基督在你们心里吗。

Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

13:6 我却盼望你们晓得我们不是可弃绝的人。

But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.

13:7 我们求神,叫你们一件恶事都不作。这不是要显明我们是蒙悦纳的,是要你们行事端正,任凭人看我们是被弃绝的吧。

Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates.

13:8 我们凡事不能敌挡真理,只能扶助真理。

For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.

13:9 既使我们软弱,你们刚强,我们也欢喜。并且我们所求的,就是你们作完全人。

For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection.

13:10 所以我不在你们那里的时候,把这话写给你们,好叫我见你们的时候,不用照主所给我的权柄,严厉的待你们。这权柄原是为造就人,并不是为败坏人。

Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me to edification, and not to destruction.

13:11 还有未了的话,愿弟兄们都喜乐。要作完全人。要受安慰。要同心合意。要彼此和睦。如此仁爱和平的神,必常与你们同在。

Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

13:12 你们亲嘴问安。彼此务要圣洁。

Greet one another with an holy kiss.

13:13 众圣徒都问你们安。

All the saints salute you.

13:14 愿主耶稣基督的恩惠,神的慈爱,圣灵的感动,常与你们众人同在。

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.



新约 -- 加拉太书(Galatians) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

1:1 作使徒的保罗,(不是由于人,也不是藉着人,乃是藉着耶稣基督,与叫他从死里复活的父神)

Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)

1:2 和一切与我同在的众弟兄,写信给加拉太的各教会。

And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:

1:3 愿恩惠平安,从父神与我们的主耶稣基督,归与你们。

Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,

1:4 基督照我们父神的旨意为我们的罪舍己,要救我们脱离这罪恶的世代。

Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

1:5 但愿荣耀归于神直到永永远远。阿们。

To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

1:6 我希奇你们这吗快离开那藉着基督之恩召你们的,去从别的福音。

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

1:7 那并不是福音不过有些人搅扰你们,要把基督的福音更改了。

Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

1:8 但无论是我们,是天上来的使者,若传福音给你们,与我们所传给你们的不同,他就应当被咒诅。

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

1:9 我们已经说了,现在又说,若有人传福音给你们,与你们所领受的不同,他就应当被咒诅。

As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

1:10 我现在是要得人的心呢,还是要得神的心呢。我岂是讨人的喜欢吗。若仍旧讨人的喜欢,我就不是基督的仆人了。

For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

1:11 弟兄们,我告诉你们,我素来所传的福音,不是出于人的意思。

But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.

1:12 因为我不是从人领受的,也不是人教导我的,乃是从耶稣基督启示来的。

For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

1:13 你们听见我从前在犹太教中所行的事,怎样极力逼迫残害神的教会。

For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:

1:14 我又在犹太教中,比我本国许多同岁的人更有长进,为我祖宗的遗传更加热心。

And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.

1:15 然而那把我从母腹里分别出来,又施恩召我的神,

But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,

1:16 既然乐意将他儿子启示在我心里,叫我把他传在外邦人中,我就没有与属血气的人商量,

To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:

1:17 也没有上耶路撒冷去,见那些比我先作使徒的。惟独往阿拉伯去。后又回到大马士革。

Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus.

1:18 过了三年,才上耶路撒冷去见叽法,和他同住了十五天。

Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.

1:19 至于别的使徒,除了主的兄弟雅各,我都没有看见。

But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord's brother.

1:20 我写给你们的,不是谎话,这是我在神面前说的。

Now the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not.

1:21 以后我到了叙利亚和基利家境内。

Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia;

1:22 那时,犹太信基督的各教会都没有见过我的面。

And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were in Christ:

1:23 不过听说,那从前逼迫我们的,现在传扬他原先所残害的真道。

But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.

1:24 他们就为我的缘故,归荣耀给神。

And they glorified God in me.



新约 -- 加拉太书(Galatians) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

2:1 过了十四年,我同巴拿巴又上耶路撒冷去,并带着提多同去。

Then fourteen years after I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and took Titus with me also.

2:2 我是奉启示上去的,把我在外邦人中所传的福音,对弟兄们陈说。却是背地里对那有名望之人说的。惟恐我现在,或是从前,徒然奔跑。

And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain.

2:3 但与我同去的提多,虽是希腊人,也没有勉强他受割礼。

But neither Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised:

2:4 因为有偷着引进来的假弟兄,私下窥探我们在基督耶稣里的自由,要叫我们作奴仆。

And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:

2:5 我们就是一刻的工夫,也没有容让顺服他们,为要叫福音的真理仍存在你们中间。

To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.

2:6 至于那些有名望的,不论他是何等人,都与我无干。神不以外貌取人。那些有名望的,并没有加增我什么。

But of these who seemed to be somewhat, (whatsoever they were, it maketh no matter to me: God accepteth no man's person:) for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me:

2:7 反倒看见了主托我传福音给那未受割礼的人,正如托彼得传福音给那受割礼的人。

But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;

2:8 (那感动彼得,叫他为受割礼之人作使徒的,也感动我,叫我为外邦人作使徒)

(For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:)

2:9 又知道所赐给我的恩典,那称为教会柱石的雅各,叽法,约翰,就向我和巴拿巴用右手行相交之礼,叫我们往外邦人那里去,他们往受割礼的人那里去。

And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.

2:10 只是愿意我们记念穷人。这也是我本来热心去行的。

Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do.

2:11 后来叽法到了安提阿,因他有可责之处,我就当面抵挡他。

But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.

2:12 从雅各那里来的人,未到以先,他和外邦人一同吃饭。及至他们来到,他因怕奉割礼的人,就退去与外邦人隔开了。

For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision.

2:13 其馀的犹太人,也都随着他装假。甚至连巴拿巴也随夥装假。

And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation.

2:14 但我一看他们行的不正,与福音的真理不合,就在众人面前对矶法说,你既是犹太人,若随外邦人行事,不随犹太人行事,怎吗还勉强外邦人随犹太人呢。

But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?

2:15 我们这生来的犹太人,不是外邦的罪人,

We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles,

2:16 既知道人称义,不是因行律法,乃是因信耶稣基督,连我们也信了基督耶稣,使我们因信基督称义,不因行律法称义,因为凡有血气的,没有一人因行律法称义。

Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

2:17 我们若求在基督里称义,却仍旧是罪人,难道基督是叫人犯罪的吗。断乎不是。

But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid.

2:18 我素来所拆毁的,若重新建造,这就证明自己是犯罪的人。

For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.

2:19 我因律法就向律法死了,叫我可以向神活着。

For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.

2:20 我已经与基督同钉十字架。现在活着的,不再是我,乃是基督在我里面活着。并且我如今在肉身活着,是因信神的儿子而活,他是爱我,为我舍己。

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

2:21 我不废掉神的恩。义若是藉着律法得的,基督就是徒然死了。

I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.



新约 -- 加拉太书(Galatians) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

3:1 无知的加拉太人哪,耶稣基督钉十字架,已经活画在你们眼前,谁又迷惑了你们呢。

O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?

3:2 我只要问你们这一件,你们受了圣灵,是因行律法呢,是因听信福音呢。

This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

3:3 你们既靠圣灵入门,如今还靠肉身成全吗。你们是这样的无知吗。

Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?

3:4 你们受苦如此之多,都是徒然的吗。难道果真是徒然的吗。

Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.

3:5 那赐给你们圣灵,又在你们中间行异能的,是因你们行律法呢,是因你们听信福音呢。

He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

3:6 正如,亚伯拉罕信神,这就算为他的义。

Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.

3:7 所以你们要知道那以信为本的人,就是亚伯拉罕的子孙。

Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.

3:8 并且圣经既然豫先看明,神要叫外邦人因信称义,就早已传福音给亚伯拉罕,说,万国都必因你得福。

And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

3:9 可见那以信为本的人,和有信心的亚伯拉罕一同得福。

So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

3:10 凡以行律法为本的,都是被咒诅的。因为经上记着,凡不常照律法书上所记一切之事去行的,就被咒诅。

For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.

3:11 没有一个人靠着律法在神面前称义,这是明显的。因为经上说,义人必因信得生。

But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

3:12 律法原不本乎信,只说,行这些事的,就必因此活着。

And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.

3:13 基督既为我们受了咒诅,(受原文作成)就赎出我们脱离律法的咒诅。因为经上记着,凡挂在木头上都是被咒诅的。

Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

3:14 这便叫亚伯拉罕的福,因基督耶稣可以临到外邦人,使我们因信得着所应许的圣灵。

That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

3:15 弟兄们,我且照着人的常话说,虽然是人的文约,若已经立定了,就没有能废弃或加增的。

Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.

3:16 所应许的原是向亚伯拉罕和他子孙说的。神并不是说众子孙,指着许多人,乃是说你那一个子孙,指着一个人,就是基督。

Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

3:17 我是这吗说,神豫先所立的约,不能被那四百三十年以后的律法废掉,叫应许归于虚空。

And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.

3:18 因为承受产业,若本乎律法,就不本乎应许。但神是凭着应许,把产业赐给亚伯拉罕。

For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.

3:19 这样说来,律法是为什么有的呢。原是为过犯添上的,等候那蒙应许的子孙来到。并且是藉天使经中保之手设立的。

Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.

3:20 但中保本不是为一面作的。神既是一位。

Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.

3:21 这样,律法是与神的应许反对吗。断乎不是。若曾传一个能叫人得生命的律法,义就诚然本乎律法了。

Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.

3:22 但圣经把众人都圈在罪里,使所应许的福因信耶稣基督,归给那信的人。

But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.

3:23 但这因信得救的理,还未来以先,我们被看守在律法之下,直圈到那将来的真道显明出来。

But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.

3:24 这样律法是我们训蒙的师傅,引我们到基督那里,使我们因信称义。

Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

3:25 但这因信得救的理,既然来到,我们从此就不在师傅的手下了。

But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

3:26 所以你们因信基督耶稣,都是神的儿子。

For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

3:27 你们受洗归入基督的,都是披戴基督了。

For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

3:28 并不分犹太人,希腊人,自主的,为奴的,或男或女。因为你们在基督耶稣里都成为一了。

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

3:29 你们既属乎基督,就是亚伯拉罕的后裔,是照着应许承受产业的了。

And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.



新约 -- 加拉太书(Galatians) -- 第 4 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

4:1 我说那承受产业的,虽然是全业的主人,但为孩童的时候,却与奴仆毫无分别。

Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;

4:2 乃在师傅和管家的手下,直等他父亲豫定的时候来到。

But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.

4:3 我们为孩童的时候,受管于世俗小学之下,也是如此。

Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:

4:4 及至时候满足,神就差遣他的儿子,为女人所生,且生在律法以下,

But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

4:5 要把律法以下的人赎出来,叫我们得着儿子的名分。

To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

4:6 你们既为儿子,神就差他儿子的灵,进入你们(原文作我们)的心,呼叫阿爸,父。

And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

4:7 可见,从此以后,你不是奴仆,乃是儿子了。既是儿子,就靠着神为后嗣。

Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

4:8 但从前你们不认识神的时候,是给那些本来不是神的作奴仆。

Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods.

4:9 现在你们既然认识神,更可说是被神所认识的,怎吗还要归回那懦弱无用的小学,情愿再给他作奴仆呢。

But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?

4:10 你们谨守日子,月分,节期,年分。

Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.

4:11 我为你们害怕。惟恐我在你们身上是枉费了工夫。

I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.

4:12 弟兄们,我劝你们要向我一样,因为我也像你们一样。你们一点没有亏负我。

Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are: ye have not injured me at all.

4:13 你们知道我头一次传福音给你们,是因为身体有疾病。

Ye know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first.

4:14 你们为我身体的缘故受试炼,没有轻看我,也没有厌弃我。反倒接待我,如同神的使者,如同基督耶稣。

And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus.

4:15 你们当日所夸的福气在那里呢。那时你们若能行,就是把自己的眼睛剜出来给我,也都情愿。这是我可以给你们作见证的。

Where is then the blessedness ye spake of? for I bear you record, that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and have given them to me.

4:16 如今我将真理告诉你们,就成了你们的仇敌吗。

Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

4:17 那些人热心待你们,却不是好意,是要离间(原文作把你们关在外面)你们,叫你们热心待他们。

They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them.

4:18 在善事上,常用热心待人,原是好的,却不单我与你们同在的时候才这样。

But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you.

4:19 我小子阿,我为你们再受生产之苦,直等到基督成形在你们心里。

My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,

4:20 我巴不得现今在你们那里,改换口气,因我为你们,心里作难。

I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you.

4:21 你们这愿意在律法以下的人,请告诉我,你们岂没有听见律法吗。

Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?

4:22 因为律法上记着,亚伯拉罕有两个儿子,一个是使女生的,一个是自主之妇人生的。

For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.

4:23 然而那使女所生的,是按着血气生的。那自主之妇人生的,是凭着应许生的。

But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.

4:24 这都是比方。那两个妇人,就是两约。一约是出于西奈山,生子为奴,乃是夏甲。

Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.

4:25 这夏甲二字是指着阿拉伯的西奈山,与现在的耶路撒冷同类。因耶路撒冷和他的儿女都是为奴的。

For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.

4:26 但那在上的耶路撒冷是自主的,他是我们的母。

But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

4:27 因为经上记着,不怀孕不生养的,你要欢乐。未曾经过产难的,你要高声欢呼,因为没有丈夫的,比有丈夫的儿女更多。

For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.

4:28 弟兄们,我们是凭着应许作儿女,如同以撒一样。

Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.

4:29 当时那按着血气生的,逼迫了那按着圣灵生的。现在也是这样。

But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.

4:30 然而经上是怎吗说的呢。是说,把使女和他儿子赶出去,因为使女的儿子,不可与自主妇人的儿子一同承受产业。

Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.

4:31 弟兄们,这样看来,我们不是使女的儿女,乃是自主妇人的儿女了。

So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.



新约 -- 加拉太书(Galatians) -- 第 5 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

5:1 基督释放了我们,叫我们得自由,所以要站立得稳,不要再被奴仆的轭挟制。

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

5:2 我保罗告诉你们,若受割礼,基督就与你们无益了。

Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.

5:3 我再指着凡受割礼的人确实的说,他是欠着行全律法的债。

For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.

5:4 你们这要靠律法称义的,是与基督隔绝,从恩典中坠落了。

Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

5:5 我们靠着圣灵,凭着信心,等候所盼望的义。

For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.

5:6 原来在基督耶稣里,受割礼不受割礼,全无功效。惟独使人生发仁爱的信心,才有功效。

For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

5:7 你们向来跑得好。有谁拦阻你们,叫你们不顺从真理呢。

Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?

5:8 这样的劝导,不是出于那召你们的。

This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.

5:9 一点面酵能使全团都发起来。

A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.

5:10 我在主里很信你们必不怀别样的心,但搅扰你们的,无论是谁,必担当他的罪名。

I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.

5:11 弟兄们,我若仍旧传割礼,为什么还受逼迫呢。若是这样,那十字架讨厌的地方就没有了。

And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased.

5:12 恨不得那搅乱你们的人,把自己割绝了。

I would they were even cut off which trouble you.

5:13 弟兄们,你们蒙召,是要得自由。只是不可将你们的自由当作放纵情欲的机会。总要用爱心互相服事。

For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

5:14 因为全律法都包在爱人如己这一句话之内了。

For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

5:15 你们要谨慎。若相咬相吞,只怕要彼此消灭了。

But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

5:16 我说,你们当顺着圣灵而行,就不放纵肉体的情欲了。

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

5:17 因为情欲和圣灵相争,圣灵和情欲相争。这两个是彼此相敌,使你们不能作所愿意作的。

For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

5:18 但你们若被圣灵引导,就不在律法以下。

But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

5:19 情欲的事,都是显而易见的。就如奸淫,污秽,邪荡,

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

5:20 拜偶像,邪术,仇恨,争竞,忌恨,恼怒,结党,纷争,异端,

Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

5:21 嫉妒,(有古卷在此有凶杀二字)醉酒,荒宴等类,我从前告诉你们,现在又告诉你们,行这样事的人,必不能承受神的国。

Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

5:22 圣灵所结的果子,就是仁爱,喜乐,和平,忍耐,恩慈,良善,信实,

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

5:23 温柔,节制。这样的事,没有律法禁止。

Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

5:24 凡属基督耶稣的人,是已经把肉体,连肉体的邪情私欲,同钉在十字架上了。

And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

5:25 我们若是靠圣灵得生,就当靠圣灵行事。

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

5:26 不要贪图虚名,彼此惹气,互相嫉妒。

Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.



新约 -- 加拉太书(Galatians) -- 第 6 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

6:1 弟兄们,若有人偶然被过犯所胜,你们属灵的人,就应当用温柔的心,把他挽回过来。又当自己小心,恐怕也被引诱。

Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

6:2 你们各人的重担要互相担当,如此就完全了基督的律法。

Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

6:3 人若无有,自己还以为有,就是自欺了。

For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

6:4 各人应当察验自己的行为,这样,他所夸的就专在自己,不在别人了。

But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

6:5 因为各人必担当自己的担子。

For every man shall bear his own burden.

6:6 在道理上受教的,当把一切需用的供给施教的人。

Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.

6:7 不要自欺,神是轻慢不得的。人种的是什么,收的也是什么。

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

6:8 顺着情欲撒种的,必从情欲收败坏顺着圣灵撒种的,必从圣灵收永生。

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

6:9 我们行善,不可丧志。若不灰心,到了时候,就要收成。

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

6:10 所以有了机会,就当向众人行善。向信徒一家的人更当这样。

As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

6:11 请看我亲手写给你们的字,是何等的大呢。

Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.

6:12 凡希图外貌体面的人,都勉强你们受割礼。无非是怕自己为基督的十字架受逼迫。

As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.

6:13 他们那些受割礼的,连自己也不守律法。他们愿意你们受割礼,不过要藉着你们的肉体夸口。

For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.

6:14 但我断不以别的夸口,只夸我们主耶稣基督的十字架。因这十字架,就我而论,世界已经钉在十字架上。就世界而论,我已经钉在十字架上。

But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

6:15 受割礼不受割礼都无关紧要,要紧的就是作新造的人。

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

6:16 凡照此理而行的,愿平安怜悯加给他们,和神的以色列民。

And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

6:17 从今以后,人都不要搅扰我。因为我身上带着耶稣的印记。

From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

6:18 弟兄们,愿我主耶稣基督的恩常在你们心里。阿们。

Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.



新约 -- 以弗所书(Ephesians) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

1:1 奉神旨意,作基督耶稣使徒的保罗,写信给在以弗所的圣徒,就是在基督耶稣里有忠心的人。

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:

1:2 愿恩惠平安,从神我们的父,和主耶稣基督,归与你们。

Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:3 愿颂赞归与我们主耶稣基督的父神,他在基督里,曾赐给我们天上各样属灵的福气。

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

1:4 就如神从创立世界以前,在基督里拣选了我们,使我们在他面前成为圣洁,无有瑕疵。

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

1:5 又因爱我们,就按着自己意旨所喜悦的,豫定我们,藉着耶稣基督得儿子的名分,

Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

1:6 使他荣耀的恩典得着称赞。这恩典是他在爱子里所赐给我们的。

To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

1:7 我们藉这爱子的血,得蒙救赎,过犯得以赦免,乃是照他丰富的恩典。

In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

1:8 这恩典是神用诸般智慧聪明,充充足足赏给我们的,

Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;

1:9 都是照他自己所豫定的美意,叫我们知道他旨意的奥秘,

Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

1:10 要照所安排的,在日期满足的时候,使天上地上一切所有的,都在基督里同归于一。

That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

1:11 我们也在他里面得了基业,(得或作成)这原是那位随己意行作万事的,照着他旨意所豫定的。

In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

1:12 叫他的荣耀,从我们这首先在基督里有盼望的人,可以得着称赞。

That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.

1:13 你们既听见真里的道,就是那叫你们得救的福音,也信了基督,既然信他,就受了所应许的圣灵为印记。

In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

1:14 这圣灵,是我们得基业的凭据,(原文作质)直等到神之民(民原文作产业)被赎,使他的荣耀得着称赞。

Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

1:15 因此,我既听见你们信从主耶稣,亲爱众圣徒,

Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,

1:16 就为你们不住的感谢神,祷告的时候,常题到你们。

Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;

1:17 求我们主耶稣基督的神,荣耀的父,将那赐人智慧和启示的灵,赏给你们,使你们真知道他。

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

1:18 并且照明你们心中的眼睛,使你们知道他的恩召有何等指望。他在圣徒中得的基业,有何等丰盛的荣耀。

The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

1:19 并知道他向我们这信的人所显的能力,是何等浩大,

And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

1:20 就是照他在基督身上,所运行的大能大力,使他从死里复活,叫他在天上坐在自己的右边,

Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

1:21 远超过一切执政的,掌权的,有能的,主治的,和一切有名的。不但是今世的,连来世的也都超过了。

Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

1:22 又将万有服在他的脚下,使他为教会作万有之首。

And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

1:23 教会是他的身体,是那充满万有者所充满的。

Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.



新约 -- 以弗所书(Ephesians) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

2:1 你们死在过犯罪恶之中,他叫你们活过来,

And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

2:2 那时你们在其中行事为人随从今世的风俗,顺服空中掌权者的首领,就是现今在悖逆之子心中运行的邪灵。

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

2:3 我们从前也都在他们中间,放纵肉体的私欲,随着肉体和心中所喜好的去行,本为可怒之子,和别人一样。

Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

2:4 然而神既有丰富的怜悯。因他爱我们的大爱,

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

2:5 当我们死在过犯中的时候,便叫我们与基督一同活过来。(你们得救是本乎恩)

Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

2:6 他又叫我们与基督耶稣一同复活,一同坐在天上,

And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

2:7 要将他极丰富的恩典,就是他在基督耶稣里向我们所施的恩慈,显明给后来的世代看。

That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

2:8 你们得救是本乎恩,也因着信,这并不是出于自己,乃是神所赐的。

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

2:9 也不是出于行为,免得有人自夸。

Not of works, lest any man should boast.

2:10 我们原是他的工作,在基督耶稣里造成的,为要叫我们行善,就是神所豫备叫我们行的。

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

2:11 所以你们应当记念,你们从前按肉体是外邦人,是称为没受割礼的,这名原是那些凭人手在肉身上称为受割礼之人所起的。

Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

2:12 那时你们与基督无关,在以色列国民以外,在所应许的诸约上是局外人。并且活在世上没有指望,没有神。

That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

2:13 你们从前远离神的人,如今却在基督耶稣里,靠着他的血,已经得亲近了。

But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

2:14 因他使我们和睦,(原文作因他是我们的和睦)将两下合而为一,拆毁了中间隔断的墙。

For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

2:15 而且以自己的身体,废掉冤仇,就是那记在律法上的规条。为要将两下,藉着自己造成一个新人,如此便成就了和睦。

Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

2:16 既在十字架上灭了冤仇,便藉这十字架,使两下归为一体,与神和好了。

And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

2:17 并且来传和平的福音给你们远处的人,也给那近处的人。

And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.

2:18 因为我们两下藉着他被一个圣灵所感得以进到父面前。

For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

2:19 这样,你们不再作外人,和客旅,是与圣徒同国,是神家里的人了。

Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

2:20 并且被建造在使徒和先知的根基上,有基督耶稣自己为房角石。

And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

2:21 各(或作全)房靠他联络得合式,渐渐成为主的圣殿。

In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

2:22 你们也靠他同被建造成为神藉着圣灵居住的所在。

In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.



新约 -- 以弗所书(Ephesians) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

3:1 因此,我保罗为你们外邦人作了基督耶稣被囚的,替你们祈祷(此句乃照对十四节所加)

For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,

3:2 掠必你们曾听见神赐恩给我,将关切你们的职分托付我,

If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:

3:3 用启示使我知道福音的奥秘,正如我以前略略写过的。

How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,

3:4 你们念了,就能晓得我是深知基督的奥秘。

Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)

3:5 这奥秘在以前的世代,没有叫人知道,像如今藉着圣灵启示他的圣使徒和先知一样。

Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;

3:6 这奥秘就是外邦人在基督耶稣里,藉着福音,得以同为后嗣,同为一体,同蒙应许。

That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:

3:7 我作了这福音的执事,是照神的恩赐。这恩赐是照他运行的大能赐给我的。

Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.

3:8 我本来比众圣徒中最小的还小。然而他还赐我这恩典,叫我把基督那测不透的丰富,传给外邦人。

Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;

3:9 又使众人都明白,这历代以来隐藏在创造万物之神里的奥秘,是如何安排的。

And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

3:10 为要藉着教会使天上执政的,掌权的,现在得知神百般的智慧。

To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,

3:11 这是照神从万世以前,在我们主基督耶稣里所定的旨意。

According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:

3:12 我们因信耶稣,就在他里面放胆无惧,笃信不疑的来到神面前。

In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.

3:13 所以我求你们,不要因我为你们所受的患难丧胆。这原是你们的荣耀。

Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.

3:14 因此,我在父面前屈膝,

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

3:15 (天上地上的各(或作全)家,都是从他得名)

Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

3:16 求他按着他丰盛的荣耀,藉着他的灵,叫你们心里的力量刚强起来,

That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

3:17 使基督因你们的信,住在你们心里,叫你们的爱心,有根有基,

That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

3:18 能以和众圣徒一同明白基督的爱,是何等长阔高深,

May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

3:19 并且知道这爱是过于人所能测度的,便叫神一切所充满的,充满了你们。

And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

3:20 神能照着运行在我们心里的大力,充充足足的成就一切超过我们所求所想的。

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

3:21 但愿他在教会中,并在基督耶稣里,得着荣耀,直到世世代代,永永远远。阿们。

Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.



新约 -- 以弗所书(Ephesians) -- 第 4 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

4:1 我为主被囚的劝你们,既然蒙召,行事为人就当与蒙召的恩相称。

I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,

4:2 凡事谦虚,温柔,忍耐,用爱心互相宽容,

With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;

4:3 用和平彼此联络,竭力保守圣灵所赐合而为一的心。

Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

4:4 身体只有一个,圣灵只有一个,正如你们蒙召,同有一个指望,

There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

4:5 一主,一信,一洗,

One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

4:6 一神,就是众人的父,超乎众人之上,贯乎众人之中,也住在众人之内。

One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

4:7 我们各人蒙恩,都是照基督所量给各人的恩赐。

But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

4:8 所以经上说,他升上高天的时候,掳掠了仇敌,将各样的恩赐赏给人。

Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.

4:9 (既说升上,岂不是先降在地下吗。

(Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?

4:10 那降下的,就是远升诸天之上要充满万有的

He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)

4:11 他所赐的有使徒,有先知。有传福音的。有牧师和教师。

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

4:12 为要成全圣徒,各尽其职,建立基督的身体。

For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

4:13 直等到我们众人在真道上同归于一,认识神的儿子,得以长大成人,满有基督长成的身量。

Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

4:14 使我们不再作小孩子,中了人的诡计,和欺骗的法术,被一切异教之风摇动,飘来飘去,就随从各样的异端。

That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

4:15 惟用爱心说诚实话,凡事长进,连于元首基督。

But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

4:16 全身都靠他联络得合式,百节各按各职,照着各体的功用,彼此相助,便叫身体渐渐增长,在爱中建立自己。

From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

4:17 所以我说,且在主里确实的说,你们行事,不要再像外邦人存虚妄的心行事。

This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,

4:18 他们心地昏昧,与神所赐的生命隔绝了,都因自己无知,心里刚硬。

Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

4:19 良心既然丧尽,就放纵私欲,贪行种种的污秽。

Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

4:20 你们学了基督,却不是这样。

But ye have not so learned Christ;

4:21 如果你们听过他的道,领了他的教,学了他的真理,

If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:

4:22 就要脱去你们从前行为上的旧人。这旧人是因私欲的迷惑,渐渐变坏的。

That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

4:23 又要将你们的心志改换一新。

And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

4:24 并且穿上新人。这新人是照着神的形像造的,有真里的仁义,和圣洁。

And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

4:25 所以你们要弃绝谎言,各人与邻舍说实话。因为我们是互相为肢体。

Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

4:26 生气却不要犯罪。不可含怒到日落。

Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

4:27 也不可给魔鬼留地步。

Neither give place to the devil.

4:28 从前偷窃的,不要再偷。总要劳力,亲手作正经事,就可有馀分给那缺少的人。我们工作不谨是为我们自己,也应当为别人。

Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

4:29 污秽的言语,一句不可出口,只要随事说造就人的好话,叫听见的人得益处。

Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

4:30 不要叫神的圣灵担忧。你们原是受了他的印记,等候得赎的日子来到。

And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

4:31 一切苦毒,脑恨,忿怒,囔闹,毁谤,并一切的恶毒,(或作阴毒)都当从你们中间除掉。

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

4:32 并要以恩慈相待,存怜悯的心,彼此饶恕,正如神在基督里饶恕了你们一样。

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.



新约 -- 以弗所书(Ephesians) -- 第 5 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

5:1 所以你们该效法神,好像蒙慈爱的儿女一样。

Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

5:2 也要凭爱心行事,正如基督爱我们,为我们舍了自己,当作馨香的供物,和祭物,献与神。

And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

5:3 至于淫乱,并一切污秽,或是贪婪,在你们中间连题都不可,方合圣徒的体统。

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

5:4 淫词,妄语,和戏笑的话,都不相宜,总要说感谢的话。

Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

5:5 因为你们确实的知道,无论是淫乱的,是污秽的,是有贪心的,在基督和神的国里,都是无分的。有贪心的,就与拜偶像的一样。

For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

5:6 不要被人虚浮的话欺哄。因这些事,神的忿怒必临到那悖逆之子。

Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

5:7 所以你们不要与他们同夥。

Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

5:8 从前你们是暗昧的,但如今在主里面是光明的,行事为人就当像光明的子女。

For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

5:9 光明所结的果子,就是一切良善,公义,诚实。

(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

5:10 总要察验何为主所喜悦的事。

Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

5:11 那暗昧无益的事,不要与人同行,倒要责备行这事的人

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

5:12 因为他们暗中所行的,就是题起来,也是可耻的。

For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

5:13 凡事受了责备,就被光显明出来。因为一切能显明的,就是光。

But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

5:14 所以主说,你这睡着的人,当醒过来,从死里复活,基督就要光照你了。

Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

5:15 你们要谨慎行事,不要像愚昧人,当像智慧人。

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

5:16 要爱惜光阴,因为现今的世代邪恶。

Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

5:17 不要作糊涂人,要明白主的旨意如何。

Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

5:18 不要醉酒,酒能使人放荡,乃要被圣灵充满。

And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

5:19 当用诗章,颂词,灵歌,彼此对说,口唱心和的赞美主。

Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

5:20 凡事要奉我们主耶稣基督的名,常常感谢父神。

Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

5:21 又当存敬畏基督的心,彼此顺服。

Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

5:22 你们作妻子的,当顺服自己的丈夫,如同顺服主。

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

5:23 因为丈夫是妻子的头,如同基督是教会的头。他又是教会全体的救主。

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

5:24 教会怎样顺服基督,妻子也要怎样凡事顺服丈夫。

Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

5:25 你们作丈夫的,要爱你们的妻子,正如基督爱教会,为教会舍己。

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

5:26 要用水藉着道,把教会洗净,成为圣洁,

That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

5:27 可以献给自己,作个荣耀的教会,毫无玷污皱纹等类的病,乃是圣洁没有瑕疵的。

That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

5:28 丈夫也当照样爱妻子,如同爱自己的身子。爱妻子,便是爱自己了。

So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

5:29 从来没有人恨恶自己的身子,总是保养顾惜,正像基督待教会一样。

For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

5:30 因我们是他身上的肢体。(有古卷在此有就是他的骨他的肉)。

For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

5:31 为这个缘故,人要离开父母,与妻子连合,二人成为一体。

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

5:32 这是极大的奥秘,但我是指着基督和教会说的。

This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

5:33 然而你们各人都当爱妻子,如同爱自己一样。妻子也当敬重他的丈夫。

Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.



新约 -- 以弗所书(Ephesians) -- 第 6 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

6:1 你们作儿女的,要在主里听从父母,这是理所当然的。

Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.

6:2 要孝敬父母,使你们得福,在世长寿。

Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;

6:3 *这是第一条带应许的诫命。

That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

6:4 你们作父亲的,不要惹儿女的气,只要照着主的教训和警戒,养育他们。

And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

6:5 你们作仆人的,要惧怕战兢,用诚实的心听从你们肉身的主人,好像听从基督一般。

Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;

6:6 不要只在眼前事奉,像是讨人喜欢的,要像基督的仆人,从心里遵行神的旨意。

Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;

6:7 甘心事奉,好像服事主,不像服事人。

With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:

6:8 因为晓得各人所行的善事,不论是为奴的,是自主的,都必按所行的得主的赏赐

Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.

6:9 你们作主人的待仆人,也是一理,不要威吓他们。因为知道他们和你们,同有一位主在天上,他并不偏待人。

And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.

6:10 我还有末了的话,你们要靠着主,倚赖他的大能大力,作刚强的人。

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

6:11 要穿戴神所赐的全副军装,就能抵挡魔鬼的诡计。

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

6:12 因我们并不是与属血气的争战,乃是与那些执政的,掌权的,管辖这幽暗世界的,以及天空属灵气的恶魔争战。(两争战原都作摔跤)

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

6:13 所以要拿起神所赐的全副军装,好在磨难的日子,抵挡仇敌,并且成就了一切,还能站立得住。

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

6:14 所以要站稳了,用真理当作带子束腰,用公义当作护心镜遮胸。

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

6:15 又用平安的福音,当作豫备走路的鞋穿在脚上,

And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

6:16 此外又拿着信德当作藤牌,可以灭尽那恶者一切的火箭。

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

6:17 并戴上救恩的头盔,拿着圣灵的宝剑,就是神的道。

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

6:18 靠着圣灵,随时多方祷告祈求,并要在此儆醒不倦,为众圣徒祈求,

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

6:19 也为我祈求,使我得着口才,能以放胆,开口讲明福音的奥秘,

And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

6:20 (我为这福音的奥秘,作了带锁链的使者)并使我照着当尽的本分,放胆讲论。

For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

6:21 今有所亲爱忠心事奉主的兄弟推基古,他要把我的事情并我的景况如何,全告诉你们叫你们知道。

But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:

6:22 我特意打发他到你们那里去,好叫你们知道我们的光景,又叫他安慰你们的心。

Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.

6:23 愿平安,仁爱,信心,从父神和主耶稣基督,归与弟兄。

Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

6:24 并愿所有诚心爱我们主耶稣基督的人,都蒙恩惠。

Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.



新约 -- 腓立比书(Philippians) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 4 章 )[]

1:1 基督耶稣的仆人保罗,和提摩太,写信给凡住腓立比,在基督耶稣里的众圣徒,和诸位监督,诸位执事。

Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:

1:2 愿恩惠平安,从神我们的父,并主耶稣基督,归与你们。

Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:3 我每逢想念你们,就感谢我的神。

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,

1:4 (每逢为你们众人祈求的时候,常是欢欢喜喜的祈求)

Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy,

1:5 因为从头一天直到如今,你们是同心合意的兴旺福音。

For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now;

1:6 我深信那在你们心里动了善工的,必成全这工,直到耶稣基督的日子。

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

1:7 我为你们众人有这样的意念,原是应当的。因你们常在我心里,无论我是在捆锁之中,是辩明证实福音的时候,你们都与我一同得恩。

Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace.

1:8 我体会基督耶稣的心肠,切切的想念你们众人。这是神可以给我作见证的。

For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ.

1:9 我所祷告的,就是要你们的爱心,在知识和各样见识上,多而又多。

And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;

1:10 使你们能分别是非,(或作喜爱那美好的事)作诚实无过的人,直到基督的日子。

That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;

1:11 并靠着耶稣基督结满了仁义的果子,叫荣耀称赞归与神。

Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

1:12 弟兄们,我愿意你们知道,我所遭遇的事,更是叫福音兴旺。

But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel;

1:13 以致我受的捆锁,在御营全军,和其馀的人中,已经显明是为基督的缘故。

So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places;

1:14 并且那在主里的弟兄,多半因我受的捆锁,就笃信不疑,越发放胆传神的道,无所惧怕。

And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.

1:15 有的传基督,是出于嫉妒分争。也有的是出于好意。

Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will:

1:16 这一等是出于爱心,知道我是为辩明福音设立的。

The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:

1:17 那一等传基督是出于结党,并不诚实,意思要加增我捆锁的苦楚。

But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.

1:18 这有何防呢。或是假意,或是真心,无论怎样,基督究竟被传开了。为此我就欢喜,并且还要欢喜。

What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.

1:19 因为我知道这事藉着你们的祈祷,和耶稣基督之灵的帮助,终必叫我得救。

For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

1:20 照着我所切慕所盼望的,没有一事教我羞愧,只要凡事放胆。无论是生,是死,总叫基督在我身上照常显大。

According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.

1:21 因我活着就是基督,我死了就有益处。

For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

1:22 但我在肉身活着,若成就我工夫的果子,我就不知道该挑选什么。

But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not.

1:23 我正在两难之间,情愿离世与基督同在。因为这是好得无比的。

For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:

1:24 然而我在肉身活着,为你们更是要紧的。

Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.

1:25 我既然这样深信,就知道仍要住在世间,且与你们众人同住,使你们腓01:25)在所信的道上。又长进又喜乐。

And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith;

1:26 叫你们在基督耶稣里的欢乐,因我再到你们那里去,就越发加增。

That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again.

1:27 只要你们行事为人与基督的福音相称。叫我或来见你们,或不在你们那里,可以听见你们的景况,知道你们同有一个心志,站立得稳,为所信的福音齐心努力。

Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;

1:28 凡事不怕敌人的惊吓。这是证明他们沉沦,你们得救,都是出于神。

And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.

1:29 因为你们蒙恩,不但得以信服基督,并要为他受苦。

For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

1:30 你们的争战,就与你们在我身上从前所看见,现在所听见的一样。

Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.



新约 -- 腓立比书(Philippians) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 4 章 )[]

2:1 所以在基督里若有什么劝勉,爱心有什么安慰,圣灵有什么交通,心中有什么慈悲怜悯,

If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,

2:2 你们就要意念相同,爱心相同,有一样的心思,有一样的意念,使我们的喜乐可以满足。

Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

2:3 凡事不可结党,不可贪图虚浮的荣耀。只要存心谦卑,各人看别人比自己强。

Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

2:4 各人不要单顾自己的事,也要顾别人的事。

Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

2:5 你们当以基督耶稣的心为心。

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

2:6 他本有神的行像,不以自己与神同等为强夺的。

Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

2:7 凡倒虚己,取了奴仆的形像,成为人的样式。

But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

2:8 既有人的样子,就自己卑微,存心顺服,以至于死,且死在十字架上。

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

2:9 所以神将他升为至高,又赐给他那超乎万名之上的名,

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

2:10 叫一切在天上的,地上的,和地底下的,因耶稣的名,无不屈膝,

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

2:11 无不口称耶稣基督为主,使荣耀归与父神。

And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

2:12 这样看来,我亲爱的弟兄你们既是常顺服的,不但我在你们那里,就是我如今不在你们那里,更是顺服的,就当恐惧战兢,作成你们得救的工夫。

Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

2:13 因为你们立志行事,都是神在你们心里运行,为要成就他的美意。

For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

2:14 凡所行的,都不要发怨言,起争论,

Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

2:15 使你们无可指摘,诚实无伪,在这弯曲悖谬的世代,作神无瑕无疵的儿女。你们显在这世代中,好像明光照耀,

That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

2:16 将生命的道表明出来,叫我在基督的日子,好夸我没有空跑,也没有徒劳。

Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

2:17 我以你们的信心为供献的祭物。我若被浇奠在其上,也是喜乐,并且与你们众人一同喜乐。

Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.

2:18 你们也要照样喜乐,并且与我一同喜乐。

For the same cause also do ye joy, and rejoice with me.

2:19 我靠主耶稣指望快打发提摩太去见你们,叫我知道你们的事,心里就得着安慰。

But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state.

2:20 因为我没有别人与我同心,实在挂念你们的事。

For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state.

2:21 别人都求自己的事,并不求耶稣基督的事。

For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's.

2:22 但你们知道提摩太的明证,他兴旺福音与我同劳,待我像儿子待父亲一样。

But ye know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the gospel.

2:23 所以我一看出我的事要怎样了结,就盼望立刻打发他去。

Him therefore I hope to send presently, so soon as I shall see how it will go with me.

2:24 但我靠着主,自信我也必快去。

But I trust in the Lord that I also myself shall come shortly.

2:25 然而我想必须打发以巴弗提到你们那里去。他是我的兄弟,与我一同作工,一同当兵,是你们所差遣的,也是供给我需用的。

Yet I supposed it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, and companion in labour, and fellowsoldier, but your messenger, and he that ministered to my wants.

2:26 他很想念你们众人,并且极其难过,因为你们听见他病了。

For he longed after you all, and was full of heaviness, because that ye had heard that he had been sick.

2:27 他实在是病了,几乎要死。然而神怜悯他,不但怜悯他,也怜悯我,免得我忧上加忧。

For indeed he was sick nigh unto death: but God had mercy on him; and not on him only, but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow.

2:28 所以我越发急速打发他去,叫你们再见他,就可以喜乐,我也可以少些忧愁。

I sent him therefore the more carefully, that, when ye see him again, ye may rejoice, and that I may be the less sorrowful.

2:29 故此你们要在主里欢欢乐乐的接待他。而且要尊重这样的人。

Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness; and hold such in reputation:

2:30 因他为作基督的工夫,几乎至死,不顾性命,要补足你们供给我不及之处。

Because for the work of Christ he was nigh unto death, not regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me.



新约 -- 腓立比书(Philippians) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 4 章 )[]

3:1 弟兄们,我还有话说,你们要靠主喜乐。我把这话再写给你们,于我并不为难,于你们却是妥当。

Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.

3:2 应当防备犬类,防备作恶的,防备妄自行割的。

Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.

3:3 因为真受割礼的,乃是我们这以神的灵敬拜,在基督耶稣里夸口,不靠着肉体的。

For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

3:4 其实我也可以靠肉体。若是别人想他可以靠肉体,我更可以靠着了。

Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:

3:5 我第八天受割礼,我是以色列族,便雅悯支派的人,是希伯来人所生的希伯来人。就律法说,我是法利赛人。

Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;

3:6 就热心说,我是逼迫教会的。就律法上的义说,我是无可指摘的。

Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.

3:7 只是我先前以为与我有益的,我现在因基督都当作有损的。

But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.

3:8 不但如此,我也将万事都当有损的,因我以认识我主基督耶稣为至宝。

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

3:9 我为他已经丢弃万事,看作粪土,为要得着基督。并且得以在他里面,不是有自己因律法而得的义,乃是有信基督的义,就是因信神而来的义。

And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

3:10 使我认识基督,晓得他复活的大能,并且晓得和他一同受苦,效法他的死。

That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

3:11 或者我也得以从死里复活。

If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

3:12 这不是说,我已经得着了,已经完全了。我乃是竭力追求,或者可以得着基督耶稣所以得着我的。(所以得着我的或作所要我得的)

Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

3:13 弟兄们,我不是以为自己已经得着了。我只有一件事,就是忘记背后努力面前的,

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

3:14 向着标竿直跑,要得神在基督耶稣里从上面召我来得的奖赏。

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

3:15 所以我们中间凡是完全人,总要存这样的心。若在什么事上,存别样的心,神也必以此指示你们。

Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

3:16 然而我们到了什么地步,就当照着什么地步行。

Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

3:17 弟兄们,你们要一同效法我,也当留意看那些照我们榜样行的人。

Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

3:18 因为有许多人行事,是基督十字架的仇敌。我屡次告诉你们,现在又流泪的告诉你们。

(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

3:19 他们的结局就是沉沦,他们的神就是自己的肚腹,他们以自己的羞辱为荣耀,专以地上的事为念。

Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

3:20 我们却是天上的国民。并且等候救主,就是主耶稣基督,从天上降临。

For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

3:21 他要按着那能叫万有归服自己的大能,将我们这卑贱的身体改变形状,和他自己荣耀的身体相似。

Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.



新约 -- 腓立比书(Philippians) -- 第 4 章 ( 本篇共有 4 章 )[]

4:1 我所亲爱所想念的弟兄们,你们就是我的喜乐,我的冠冕。我亲爱的弟兄,你们应当靠主站立得稳。

Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.

4:2 我劝友阿爹和循都基,要在主里同心。

I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord.

4:3 我也求你这真实同负一轭的,帮助这两个女人,因为他们在福音上曾与我一同劳苦。还有革利免,并其馀和我一同作工的。他们的名字都在生命册上。

And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.

4:4 你们要靠主常常喜乐。我再说,你们要喜乐。

Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

4:5 当叫众人知道你们谦让的心。主已经近了。

Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

4:6 应当一无挂虑,只要凡事藉着祷告,祈求,和感谢,将你们所要的告诉神。

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

4:7 神所赐出人意外的平安,必在基督耶稣里,保守你们的心怀意念。

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

4:8 弟兄们,我还有未尽的话。凡是真实的,可敬的,公义的,清洁的,可爱的,有美名的。若有什么德行,若有什么称赞,这些事你们都要思念。

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

4:9 你们在我身上所学习的,所领受的,所听见的,所看见的,这些事你们都要去行。赐平安的神,就必与你们同在。

Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

4:10 我靠主大大的喜乐,因为你们思念我的心,如今又发生。你们向来就思念我,只是没有机会。

But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.

4:11 我并不是因缺乏说这话,我无论在什么景况,都可以知足,这是我已经学会了。

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

4:12 我知道怎样处卑贱,也知道怎样处丰富,或饱足,或饥饿,或有馀,或缺乏,随事随在,我都得了秘诀。

I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

4:13 我靠着那加给我力量的,凡事都能作。

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

4:14 然而你们和我同受患难,原是美事。

Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.

4:15 腓立比人哪,你们也知道我初传福音,离了马其顿的时候,论到授受的事,除了你们以外,并没有别的教会供给我。

Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.

4:16 就是我在帖撒罗尼迦,你们也一次两次的,打发人供给我的需用。

For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.

4:17 我并不求什么馈送,所求的就是你们的果子渐渐增多,归在你们的账上。

Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.

4:18 但我样样都有,并且有馀。我已经充足,因我从以巴弗提受了你们的馈送,当作极美的香气,为神所收纳所喜悦的祭物。

But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.

4:19 我的神必照他荣耀的丰富,在基督耶稣里,使你们一切所需用的都充足。

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

4:20 愿荣耀归给我们的父神,直到永永远远。阿们。

Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

4:21 请问在基督耶稣里的各位圣徒安。在我这里的众弟兄都问你们安。

Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren which are with me greet you.

4:22 众圣徒都问你们安。在凯撒家里的人特特的问你们安。

All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar's household.

4:23 愿主耶稣基督的恩常在你们心里。

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.



新约 -- 歌罗西书(Colossians) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 4 章 )[]

1:1 奉神旨意,作基督耶稣使徒的保罗,和兄弟提摩太,

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother,

1:2 写信给歌罗西的圣徒,在基督里有忠心的弟兄。愿恩惠平安,从神我们的父,归与你们。

To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:3 我们感谢神我们主耶稣基督的父,常常为你们祷告。

We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,

1:4 因听见你们在基督耶稣里的信心,并向众圣徒的爱心。

Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints,

1:5 是为那给你们存在天上的盼望。这盼望就是你们从前在福音真理的道上所听见的。

For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;

1:6 这福音传到你们那里,也传到普天之下,并且结果增长,如同在你们中间,自从你们听见福音,真知道神恩惠的日子一样。

Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:

1:7 正如你们从我们所亲爱,一同作仆人的以巴弗所学的。他为我们(有古卷你们)作了基督忠心的执事。

As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ;

1:8 也把你们因圣灵所存的爱心告诉了我们。

Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit.

1:9 因此,我们自从听见的日子,也就为你们不住的祷告祈求,愿你们在一切属灵的智慧悟性上,满心知道神的旨意。

For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

1:10 好叫你们行事为人对得起主,凡事蒙他喜悦,在一切善事上结果子,渐渐的多知道神。

That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

1:11 照他荣耀的权能,得以在各样的力上加力,好叫你们凡事欢欢喜喜的忍耐宽容。

Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

1:12 又感谢父,叫我们能与众圣徒在光明中同得基业。

Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

1:13 他救了我们脱离黑暗的权势,把我们迁到他爱子的国里。

Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

1:14 我们在爱子里得蒙救赎,罪过得以赦免。

In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

1:15 爱子是那不能看见之神的像,是首生的,在一切被造的以先。

Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

1:16 因为万有都是靠他造的,无论是天上的,地上的,能看见的,不能看见的,或是有位的,主治的,执政的,掌权的,一概都是藉着他造的,又是为他造的。

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

1:17 他在万有之先,万有也靠他而立。

And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

1:18 他也是教会全体之首。他是元始,是从死里首先复生的,使他可已在凡事上居首位。

And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

1:19 因为父喜欢叫一切的丰盛,在他里面居住。

For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

1:20 既然藉着他在十字架上所流的血,成就了和平,便藉着他叫万有,无论是地上的,天上的,都与自己和好了。

And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

1:21 你们从前与神隔绝,因着恶行,心里与他为敌。

And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled

1:22 但如今他藉着基督的肉身受死,叫你们与自己和好,都成了圣洁,没有瑕疵,无可责备,把你们引到自己面前。

In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

1:23 只要你们在所信的道上恒心,根基稳固,坚定不移,不至被引动失去原文作离开福音的盼望。这福音就是你们所听过的,也是传与普天下万人听的。万人原文作凡受造的我保罗也作了这福音的执事。

If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

1:24 现在我为你们受苦,倒觉欢乐,并且为基督的身体,就是为教会,要在我肉身上补满基督患难的缺欠。

Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:

1:25 我照神为你们所赐我的职分,作了教会的执事,要把神的道理传得全备。

Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;

1:26 这道理就是历世历代所隐藏的奥秘,但如今向他的圣徒显明了。

Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:

1:27 神愿意叫他们知道,这奥秘在外邦人中有何等丰盛的荣耀。就是基督在你们心里成了有荣耀的盼望。

To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

1:28 我们传扬他,是用诸般的智慧,劝戒各人,教导各人。要把各人在基督里完完全全的引到神面前。

Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

1:29 我也为此劳苦,照着他在我里面运用的大能,尽心竭力。

Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.



新约 -- 歌罗西书(Colossians) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 4 章 )[]

2:1 我愿意你们晓得我为你们和老底嘉人,并一切没有与我亲自见面的人,是何等的尽心竭力。

For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;

2:2 要叫他们的心得安慰,因爱心互相联络,以致丰丰足足在悟性中有充足的信心,使他们真知道神的奥秘,就是基督。

That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;

2:3 所积蓄的一切智慧知识,都在他里面藏着。

In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

2:4 我说这话,免得有人用花言巧语迷惑你们。

And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.

2:5 我身子虽与你们相离,心却与你们同在,见你们循规蹈矩,信基督的心也坚固,我就欢喜了。

For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ.

2:6 你们既然接受了主基督耶稣,就当遵他而行。

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:

2:7 在他里面生根建造,信心坚固,正如你们所领的教训,感谢的心也更增长了。

Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

2:8 你们要谨慎,恐怕有人用他的理学,和虚空的妄言,不照着基督,乃照人间的遗传,和世上的小学,就把你们掳去。

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

2:9 因为神本性一切的丰盛,都有形有体的居住在基督里面。

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

2:10 你们在他里面也得了丰盛。他是各样执政掌权者的元首。

And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

2:11 你们在他里面,也受了不是人手所行的割礼,乃是基督使你们脱去肉体情欲的割礼。

In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

2:12 你们既受洗与他一同埋葬,也就在此与他一同复活。都因信那叫他从死里复活神的功用

Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

2:13 你们从前在过犯,和未受割礼的肉体中死了,神赦免了你们(或作我们)一切过犯,便叫你们与基督一同活过来。

And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

2:14 又涂抹了在律例上所写,攻击我们有碍于我们的字据,把他撤去,钉在十字架上。

Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

2:15 既将一切执政的掌权的掳来,明显给众人看,就仗着十字架夸胜。

And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

2:16 所以不拘在饮食上,或节期,月朔,安息日,都不可让人论断你们。

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

2:17 这些原是后事的影儿。那形体却是基督。

Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

2:18 不可让人因着故意谦虚,和敬拜天使,就夺去你们的奖赏。这等人拘泥在所见过的,(有古卷作这等人窥察所没有见过的)随着自己的欲心,无故的自高自大,

Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

2:19 不持定元首,全身既然靠着他筋节得以相助联络,就因神大得长进。

And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.

2:20 你们若是与基督同死,脱离了世上的小学,为什么仍像在世俗中活着,

Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,

2:21 服从那不可拿,不可尝,不可摸,等类的规条呢。

(Touch not; taste not; handle not;

2:22 这都是照人所吩咐所教导的。说到这一切正用的时候就都败坏了。

Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?

2:23 这些规条,使人徒有智慧之名,用私意崇拜,自表谦卑,苦待己身,其实在克制肉体的情欲上,是毫无功效。

Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.



新约 -- 歌罗西书(Colossians) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 4 章 )[]

3:1 所以你们若真与基督一同复活,就当求在上面的事。那里有基督坐在神的右边。

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

3:2 你们要思念上面的事,不要思念地上的事。

Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

3:3 因为你们已经死了,你们的生命与基督一同藏在神里面。

For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

3:4 基督是我们的生命,他显现的时候,你们也要与他一同显现在荣耀里。

When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

3:5 所以要治死你们在地上的肢体。就如淫乱,污秽,邪情,恶欲,和贪婪,贪婪就与拜偶像一样。

Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

3:6 因这些事,神的忿怒必临到那悖逆之子。

For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

3:7 当你们在这些事中活着的时候,也曾这样行过。

In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

3:8 但现在你们要弃绝这一切的事,以及恼恨,忿怒,恶毒,(或作阴毒)毁谤,并口中污秽的言语。

But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

3:9 不要彼此说谎,因你们已经脱去旧人和旧人的行为,

Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

3:10 穿上了新人。这新人在知识上渐渐更新,正如造他主的形像。

And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

3:11 在此并不分希腊人,犹太人,受割礼的,未受割礼的,化外人,西古提人,为奴的,自主的,惟有基督是包括一切,又住在各人之内。

Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

3:12 所以你们既是神的选民,圣洁蒙爱的人,就要存(原文作穿下同)怜悯,恩慈,谦虚,温柔,忍耐的心。

Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

3:13 倘若这人与那人有嫌隙,总要彼此包容,彼此饶恕。主怎样饶恕了你们,你们也要怎样饶恕人。

Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

3:14 在这一切之外,要存着爱心。爱心就是联络全德的。

And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

3:15 又要叫基督的平安在你们心里作主。你们也为此蒙召,归为一体。且要存感谢的心。

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

3:16 当用各样的智慧,把基督的道里,丰丰富富的存在心里,(或作当把基督的道里丰丰富富的存在心里以各样的智慧)用诗章,颂词,灵歌,彼此教导,互相劝戒,心被恩感歌颂神。

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

3:17 无论作什么,或说话,或行事,都要奉主耶稣的名,藉着他感谢父神。

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

3:18 你们作妻子的,当顺服自己的丈夫,这在主里面是相宜的。

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

3:19 你们作丈夫的,要爱你们的妻子,不可苦待他们。

Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.

3:20 你们作儿女的,要凡事听从父母,因为这是主所喜悦的。

Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.

3:21 你们作父亲的,不要惹儿女的气,恐怕他们失去志气。

Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.

3:22 你们作仆人的,要凡事听从你们肉身的主人,不要只在眼前事奉,像是讨人喜欢的,总要存心诚实敬畏主。

Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God:

3:23 无论作什么,都要从心里作,像是给主作的,不是给人作的。

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

3:24 因你们知道从主那里,必得着基业为赏赐。你们所事奉的乃是主基督。

Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

3:25 那行不义的,必受不义的报应。主不偏待人。

But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.



新约 -- 歌罗西书(Colossians) -- 第 4 章 ( 本篇共有 4 章 )[]

4:1 你们作主人的,要公公平平的待仆人,因为知道你们也有一位主在天上。

Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven.

4:2 你们要恒切祷告,在此儆醒感恩。

Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;

4:3 也要为我们祷告,求神给我们开传道的门,能以讲基督的奥秘,(我为此被捆锁)。

Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:

4:4 叫我按着所该说的话,将这奥秘发明出来。

That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.

4:5 你们要爱惜光阴,用智慧与外人交往。

Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.

4:6 你们的言语要常常带着和气,好像用盐调和,就可知道该怎样回答各人。

Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

4:7 有我亲爱的兄弟推基古要将我一切的事都告诉你们。他是忠心的执事,和我一同作主的仆人。

All my state shall Tychicus declare unto you, who is a beloved brother, and a faithful minister and fellowservant in the Lord:

4:8 我特意打发他到你们那里去,好叫你们知道我们的光景,又叫他安慰你们的心。

Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that he might know your estate, and comfort your hearts;

4:9 我又打发一位亲爱忠心的兄弟阿尼西母同去。他也是你们那里的人。他们要把这里一切的事都告诉你们。

With Onesimus, a faithful and beloved brother, who is one of you. They shall make known unto you all things which are done here.

4:10 与我一同坐监的亚里达古问你们安。巴拿巴的表弟马可也问你们安。(说到这马可,你们已经受了吩咐。他若到了你们那里,你们就接待他

Aristarchus my fellowprisoner saluteth you, and Marcus, sister's son to Barnabas, (touching whom ye received commandments: if he come unto you, receive him;)

4:11 耶数又称犹士都,也问你们安。奉割里的人中,只有这三个人,是为神的国与我一同作工的。也是叫我心里得安慰的。

And Jesus, which is called Justus, who are of the circumcision. These only are my fellowworkers unto the kingdom of God, which have been a comfort unto me.

4:12 有你们那里的人,作基督耶稣仆人的以巴弗问你们安。他在祷告之间,常为你们竭力的祈求,愿你们在神一切的旨意上,得以完全。信心充足,能站立得稳。

Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

4:13 他为你们和老底嘉并希拉波立的弟兄,多多的劳苦。这是我可以给他作见证的。

For I bear him record, that he hath a great zeal for you, and them that are in Laodicea, and them in Hierapolis.

4:14 所亲爱的医生路加,和底马问你们安。

Luke, the beloved physician, and Demas, greet you.

4:15 请问老底嘉的弟兄和宁法,并他家里的教会安。

Salute the brethren which are in Laodicea, and Nymphas, and the church which is in his house.

4:16 你们念了这书信,便交给老底嘉的教会,叫他们也念。你们也要念从老底嘉来的书信。

And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.

4:17 要对亚基布说,务要谨慎,尽你从主所受的职分。

And say to Archippus, Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfil it.

4:18 我保罗亲笔问你们安。你们要记念我的捆锁。愿恩惠常与你们同在。

The salutation by the hand of me Paul. Remember my bonds. Grace be with you. Amen.



新约 -- 帖撒罗尼迦前书(1 Thessalonians) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

1:1 保罗,西拉,提摩太,写信给帖撒罗尼迦在父神和主耶稣基督里的教会。愿恩惠平安归与你们。

Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:2 我们为你们众人常常感谢神,祷告的时候题到你们。

We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;

1:3 在神我们的父面前,不住的记念你们因信心所作的工夫,因爱心所受的劳苦,因盼望我们主耶稣基督所存的忍耐。

Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;

1:4 被神所爱的弟兄阿,我知道你们是蒙拣选的。

Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.

1:5 因为我们的福音传到你们那里,不独在乎言语,也在乎权能和圣灵,并充足的信心,正如你们知道我们在你们那里,为你们的缘故是怎样为人。

For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.

1:6 并且你们在大难之中,蒙了圣灵所赐的喜乐,领受真道,就效法我们,也效法了主。

And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost:

1:7 甚至你们作了马其顿和亚该亚,所有信主之人的榜样。

So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia.

1:8 因为主的道从你们那里已经传杨出来,你们向神的信心不但在马其顿和亚该亚,就是在各处,也都传开了。所以不用我们说什么话。

For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing.

1:9 因为他们自己已经报明我们是怎样进到你们那里,你们是怎样离弃偶像归向神,要服事那又真又活的神,

For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God;

1:10 等候他儿子从天降临,就是他从死里复活的,那位救我们脱离将来忿怒的耶稣。

And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.



新约 -- 帖撒罗尼迦前书(1 Thessalonians) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

2:1 弟兄们,你们自己原晓得我们进到你们那里,并不是徒然的。

For yourselves, brethren, know our entrance in unto you, that it was not in vain:

2:2 我们从前在腓立比被害受辱,这是你们知道的。然而还是靠我们的神放开胆量,在大争战中把神的福音传给你们。

But even after that we had suffered before, and were shamefully entreated, as ye know, at Philippi, we were bold in our God to speak unto you the gospel of God with much contention.

2:3 我们的劝勉,不是出于错误,不是出于污秽,也不是用诡诈。

For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile:

2:4 但神既然验中了我们,把福音托付我们,我们就照样讲,不是要讨人喜欢,乃是要讨那察验我们心的神喜欢。

But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.

2:5 因为我们从来没有用过谄媚的话,这是你们知道的。也没有藏着贪心,这是神可以作见证的。

For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; God is witness:

2:6 我们作基督的使徒,虽然可以叫人尊重,却没有向你们或向别人求荣耀,

Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ.

2:7 只在你们中间存心温柔,如同母亲乳养自己的孩子。

But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children:

2:8 我们既是这样爱你们,不但愿意将神的福音给你们,连自己的性命也愿意给你们,因你们是我们所疼爱的。

So being affectionately desirous of you, we were willing to have imparted unto you, not the gospel of God only, but also our own souls, because ye were dear unto us.

2:9 弟兄们,你们记念我们的辛苦劳碌,昼夜作工,传神的福音给你们,免得叫你们一人受累。

For ye remember, brethren, our labour and travail: for labouring night and day, because we would not be chargeable unto any of you, we preached unto you the gospel of God.

2:10 我们向你们信主的人,是何等圣洁,公义,无可指摘,有你们作见证,也有神作见证。

Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:

2:11 你们也晓得我们怎样劝勉你们,安慰你们,嘱咐你们各人,好像父亲待自己的儿女一样。

As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children,

2:12 要叫你们行事对得起那召你们进他国得他荣耀的神。

That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.

2:13 为此,我们也不住的感谢神,因你们听见我们所传神的道,就领受了,不以为是人的道,乃以为是神的道。这道实在是神的,并且运行在你们信主的人心中。

For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

2:14 弟兄们,你们曾效法犹太中,在基督耶稣里神的各教会。因为你们也受了本地人的苦害,像他们受了犹太人的苦害一样。

For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews:

2:15 这犹太人杀了主耶稣和先知,又把我们赶出去。他们不得神的喜悦,且与众人为敌。

Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:

2:16 不许我们传道给外邦人使外邦人得救,常常充满自己的罪恶。神的忿怒临在他们身上已经到了极处。

Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.

2:17 弟兄们,我们暂时与你们离别,是面目离别,心里却不离别,我们极力的想法子,很愿意见你们的面。

But we, brethren, being taken from you for a short time in presence, not in heart, endeavoured the more abundantly to see your face with great desire.

2:18 所以我们有意到你们那里,我保罗有一两次要去,只是撒但阻挡了我们。

Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.

2:19 我们的盼望和喜乐,并所夸的冠冕,是什么呢。岂不是我们主耶稣来的时候你们在他面前删立得住吗。

For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?

2:20 因为你们就是我们的荣耀,我们的喜乐。

For ye are our glory and joy.



新约 -- 帖撒罗尼迦前书(1 Thessalonians) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

3:1 我们既不能再忍,就愿意独自等在雅典。

Wherefore when we could no longer forbear, we thought it good to be left at Athens alone;

3:2 打发我们的兄弟在基督福音上作神执事的提摩太前去,(作神执事的有古卷作与神同工的)坚固你们,并在你们所信的道上劝慰你们。

And sent Timotheus, our brother, and minister of God, and our fellowlabourer in the gospel of Christ, to establish you, and to comfort you concerning your faith:

3:3 免得有人被诸般患难摇动。因为你们自己知道我们受患难原是命定的。

That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.

3:4 我们在你们那里的时候,豫先告诉你们,我们必受患难,以后果然应验了,你们也知道。

For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know.

3:5 为此,我既不能再忍,就打发人去,要晓得你们的信心如何,恐怕那诱惑人的到底诱惑了你们,叫我们的劳苦归于徒然。

For this cause, when I could no longer forbear, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter have tempted you, and our labour be in vain.

3:6 但提摩太刚才从你们那里回来,将你们信心和爱心的好消息报给我们,又说你们常常记念我们,切切的想见我们,如同我们想见你们一样。

But now when Timotheus came from you unto us, and brought us good tidings of your faith and charity, and that ye have good remembrance of us always, desiring greatly to see us, as we also to see you:

3:7 所以弟兄们,我们在一切困苦患难之中,因着你们的信心就得了安慰。

Therefore, brethren, we were comforted over you in all our affliction and distress by your faith:

3:8 你们若靠主站立得稳,我们就活了。

For now we live, if ye stand fast in the Lord.

3:9 我们在神面前,因着你们甚是喜乐,为这一切喜乐,可用何等的感谢,为你们报答神呢。

For what thanks can we render to God again for you, for all the joy wherewith we joy for your sakes before our God;

3:10 我们昼夜切切的祈求,要见你们的面,补满你们信心的不足。

Night and day praying exceedingly that we might see your face, and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith?

3:11 愿神我们的父,和我们的主耶稣,一直引领我们到你们那里去。

Now God himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you.

3:12 又愿主叫你们彼此相爱的心,并爱众人的心,都能增长,充足,如同我们爱你们一样。

And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you:

3:13 好使你们,当我们主耶稣同他众圣徒来的时候,在我们父神面前,心里坚固,成为圣洁,无可责备。

To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.



新约 -- 帖撒罗尼迦前书(1 Thessalonians) -- 第 4 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

4:1 弟兄们,我还有话说。我们靠着主耶稣求你们,劝你们,你们既然受了我们的教训,知道该怎样行,可以讨神的喜悦,就要照你们现在所行的,更加勉励。

Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.

4:2 你们原晓得我们凭主耶稣传给你们什么命令。

For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.

4:3 神的旨意就是要你们成为圣洁,远避淫行。

For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:

4:4 要你们各人晓得怎样用圣洁尊贵,守着自己的身体。

That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

4:5 不放纵私欲的邪情,像那不认识神的外邦人。

Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:

4:6 不要一个人在这事上越分,欺负他的弟兄。因为这一类的事,主必报应,正如我豫先对你们说过,又切切嘱咐你们的。

That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.

4:7 神召我们,本不是要我们沾染污秽,乃是要我们成为圣洁。

For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

4:8 所以那弃绝的,不是弃绝人,乃是弃绝那赐圣灵给你们的神。

He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.

4:9 论到弟兄们相爱,不用人写信给你们,因为你们自己蒙了神的教训,叫你们彼此相爱。

But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.

4:10 你们向马其顿全地的众弟兄,固然是这样行,但我劝弟兄们要更加勉励。

And indeed ye do it toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more;

4:11 又要立志作安静人,办自己的事,亲手作工,正如我们从前所吩咐你们的。

And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;

4:12 叫你们可以向外人行事端正,自己也就没有什么缺乏了。

That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.

4:13 论到睡了的人,我们不愿意弟兄们不知道,恐怕你们忧伤,像那些没有指望的人一样。

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

4:14 我们若信耶稣死而复活了,那已经在耶稣里睡了的人,神也必将他与耶稣一同带来。

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

4:15 我们现在照主的话告诉你们一件事。我们这活着还存留到主降临的人,断不能在那已经睡了的人之先。

For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

4:16 因为主必亲自从天降临,有呼叫的声音,和天使长的声音,又有神的号吹响。那在基督里死了的人必先复活。

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

4:17 以后我们这活着还存留的人,必和他们一同被提到云里,在空中与主相遇。这样,我们就要和主永远同在。

Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

4:18 所以你们当用这些话彼此劝慰。

Wherefore comfort one another with these words.



新约 -- 帖撒罗尼迦前书(1 Thessalonians) -- 第 5 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

5:1 弟兄们,论到时候日期,不用写信给你们。

But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

5:2 因为你们自己明明晓得,主的日子来到,好像夜间的贼一样。

For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

5:3 人正说平安稳妥的时候,灾祸忽然临到他们,如同叁难临到怀胎的妇人一样,他们绝不能逃脱。

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

5:4 弟兄们,你们却不在黑暗里,叫那日子临到你们像贼一样。

But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

5:5 你们都是光明之子,都是白昼之子,我们不是属黑夜的,也不是属幽暗的。

Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

5:6 所以我们不要睡觉,像别人一样,总要儆醒谨守。

Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

5:7 因为睡了的人是在夜间睡。醉了的人是在夜间醉。

For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

5:8 但我们既然属乎白昼,就应当谨守,把信和爱当作护心镜遮胸。把得救的盼望当作头盔戴上。

But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

5:9 因为神不是豫定我们受刑,乃是豫定我们藉着我们主耶稣基督得救。

For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

5:10 他替我们死,叫我们无论醒着睡着,都与他同活。

Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

5:11 所以你们该彼此劝慰,互相建立,正如你们素常所行的。

Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

5:12 弟兄们,我们劝你们敬重那在你们中间劳苦的人,就是在主里面治理你们,劝戒你们的。

And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;

5:13 又因他们所作的工,用爱心格外尊重他们,你们也要彼此和睦。

And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves.

5:14 我们又劝弟兄们,要警戒不守规矩的人。勉励灰心的人。扶助软弱的人。也要向众人忍耐。

Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.

5:15 你们要谨慎,无论是谁都不可以恶报恶。或是彼此相待,或是待众人,常要追求良善。

See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.

5:16 要常常喜乐。

Rejoice evermore.

5:17 不住的祷告。

Pray without ceasing.

5:18 凡事谢恩。因为这是神在基督耶稣里向你们所定的旨意。

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

5:19 不要销灭圣灵的感动。

Quench not the Spirit.

5:20 不要藐视先知的讲论。

Despise not prophesyings.

5:21 但要凡事察验。善美的要持守。

Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

5:22 各样的恶事要禁戒不作。

Abstain from all appearance of evil.

5:23 愿赐平安的神,亲自使你们全然成圣。又愿你们的灵,与魂,与身子,得蒙保守,在我主耶稣基督降临的时候,完全无可指摘。

And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

5:24 那召你们的本是信实的,他必成就这事。

Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

5:25 请弟兄们为我们祷告。

Brethren, pray for us.

5:26 与众弟兄亲嘴问安务要圣洁。

Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.

5:27 我指着主嘱咐你们,要把这信念给众弟兄听。

I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.

5:28 愿我主耶稣基督的恩常与你们同在。

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.



新约 -- 帖撒罗尼迦后书(2 Thessalonians) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 3 章 )[]

1:1 保罗,西拉,提摩太,写信给帖撒罗尼迦在神我们的父,与主耶稣基督里的教会。

Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:

1:2 愿恩惠平安,从父神和主耶稣基督,归与你们。

Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:3 弟兄们,我们该为你们常常感谢神,这本是合宜的。因你们的信心格外增长,并且你们众人彼此相爱的心也都充足。

We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;

1:4 甚至我们在神的各教会里为你们夸口,都因你们在所受的一切逼迫患难中,仍旧存忍耐和信心。

So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure:

1:5 这正是神公义判断的明证。叫你们可算配得神的国,你们就是为这国受苦。

Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer:

1:6 神既是公义的,就必将患难报应那加患难给你们的人。

Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;

1:7 也必使你们这受患难的人,与我们同得平安。那时,主耶稣同他有能力的天使从天上在火焰中显现,

And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

1:8 要报应那不认识神,和那不听从我主耶稣福音的人。

In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

1:9 他们要受刑罚,就是永远沉沦,离开主的面和他权能的荣光。

Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

1:10 这正是主降临要在他圣徒的身上得荣耀,又在一切信的人身上显为希奇的那日子。(我们对你们作的见证,你们也信了。)

When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

1:11 因此,我们常为你们祷告,愿我们的神看你们配得过所蒙的召。又用大能成就你们一切所羡慕的良善,和一切因信心所作的工夫。

Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:

1:12 叫我们主耶稣的名在你们身上得荣耀,你们也在他们身上得荣耀,都照着我们的神并主耶稣基督的恩。

That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.



新约 -- 帖撒罗尼迦后书(2 Thessalonians) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 3 章 )[]

2:1 弟兄们,论到我们主耶稣基督降临,和我们到他那里聚集,

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2:2 我劝你们,无论有灵有言语,有冒我名的书信,说主的日子现在到了,(现在或作就)不要轻易动心,也不要惊慌。

That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

2:3 人不拘用什吗法子,你们总不要被他诱惑,因为那日子以前,必有离道反教的事,并有那大罪人,就是沈沦之子,显露出来。

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2:4 他是抵挡主,高抬自己,超过一切称为神的,和一切受人敬拜的。甚至坐在神的殿里,自称是神。

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

2:5 我还在你们那里的时候,曾把这些事告诉你们,你们不记得吗。

Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

2:6 现在你们也知道那拦阻他的是什么,是叫他到了的时候,才可以显露。

And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

2:7 因为那不法的隐意已经发动。只是现在有一个拦阻的,等到那拦阻的被除去。

For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

2:8 那时这不法的人,必显露出来。主耶稣要用口中的气灭绝他,用降临的荣光废掉他。

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

2:9 这不法的人来,是照撒但的运动,行各样的异能神迹,和一切虚假的奇事,

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2:10 并且在那沉沦的人身上,行各样出于不义的诡诈。因为他们不领受真理的心,使他们得救。

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

2:11 故此,神就给他们一个生发错误的心,叫他们信从虚谎。

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

2:12 使一切不信真理,倒喜爱不义的人,都被定罪。

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2:13 主所爱的弟兄哪,我们本该常为你们感谢神。因为他从起初拣选了你们,叫你们因信真道,又被圣灵感动,成为圣洁,能以得救。

But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

2:14 神藉我们所传的福音,召你们到这地步,好得着我们主耶稣基督的荣光。

Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2:15 所以弟兄们,你们要站立得稳,凡所领受的教训,不拘是我们口传的,是信上写的,都要坚守。

Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

2:16 但愿我们主耶稣基督,和那爱我们,开恩将永远的安慰,并美好的盼望,赐给我们的父神,

Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,

2:17 安慰你们的心,并且在一切善行善言上,坚固你们。

Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.



新约 -- 帖撒罗尼迦后书(2 Thessalonians) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 3 章 )[]

3:1 弟兄们,我还有话说,请你们为我们祷告,好叫主的道理快快行开,得着荣耀,正如在你们中间一样。

Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:

3:2 也叫我们脱离无理之恶人的手。因为人不都是有信心。

And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith.

3:3 但主是信实的,要坚固你们,保护你们脱离那恶者。(或作脱离凶恶)

But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

3:4 我们靠主深信你们现在是遵行我们所吩咐的,后来也必要遵行。

And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you.

3:5 愿主引导你们的心,叫你们爱神并学基督的忍耐。

And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.

3:6 弟兄们,我们奉主耶稣基督的名吩咐你们,凡有弟兄不按规矩而行,不遵守从我们所受的教训,就当远离他。

Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.

3:7 你们自己原知道应当怎样效法我们。因为我们在你们中间,未尝不按规矩而行。

For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;

3:8 也未尝白吃人的饭。倒是辛苦劳碌,昼夜作工,免得叫你们一人受累。

Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:

3:9 这并不是因我们没有权柄,乃是要给你们作榜样,叫你们效法我们。

Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.

3:10 我们在你们那里的时候,曾吩咐你们说,若有人不肯作工,就不可吃饭。

For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

3:11 因我们听说,在你们中间有人不按规矩而行,什么工都不作,反倒专管闲事。

For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.

3:12 我们靠主耶稣基督,吩咐劝戒这样的人,要安静作工,吃自己的饭。

Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.

3:13 弟兄们,你们行善不可丧志。

But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.

3:14 若有人不听从我们这信上的话,要记下他,不和他交往,叫他自觉羞愧。

And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.

3:15 但不要以他为仇人,要劝他如弟兄。

Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

3:16 愿赐平安的主,随时随事亲自给你们平安。愿主常与你们众人同在。

Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.

3:17 我保罗亲笔问你们安。凡我的信都以此为记。我的笔迹就是这样。

The salutation of Paul with mine own hand, which is the token in every epistle: so I write.

3:18 愿我们主耶稣基督的恩,常与你们众人同在。

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.



新约 -- 提摩太前书(1 Timothy) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

1:1 奉我们救主神,和我们的盼望基督耶稣之命,作基督耶稣使徒的保罗,

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;

1:2 写信给那因信主作我真儿子的提摩太。愿恩惠怜悯平安,从父神和我们主基督耶稣,归与你。

Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.

1:3 我往马其顿去的时候,曾劝你仍住在以弗所,好嘱咐那几个人,不可传异教,

As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,

1:4 也不可听从荒渺无凭的话语,和无穷的家谱。这等事只生辩论,并不发明神在信上所立的章程。

Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.

1:5 但命令的总归就是爱。这爱是从清洁的心,和无亏的良心,无伪的信心,生出来的。

Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:

1:6 有人偏离这些,反去讲虚浮的话。

From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;

1:7 想要作教法师,却不明白自己所讲说的,所论定的。

Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

1:8 我们知道律法原是好的,只要人用得合宜。

But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;

1:9 因为律法不是为义人设立的,乃是为不法和不服的,不虔诚和犯罪的,不圣洁和恋世俗的,弑父母和杀人的,

Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,

1:10 行淫和亲男色的,抢人口和说谎话的,并起假誓的,或是为别样敌正道的事设立的。

For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

1:11 这是照着可称颂之神交托我荣耀福音说的。

According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

1:12 我感谢那给我力量的,我们主基督耶稣,因他以我有忠心,派我服事他。

And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;

1:13 我从前是亵渎神的,逼迫人的,悔慢人的。然而我还蒙了怜悯,因我是不信不明白的时候而作的。

Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

1:14 并且我主的恩是格外丰盛,使我在基督耶稣里有信心和爱心。

And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

1:15 基督耶稣降世,为要拯救罪人。这话是可信的,是十分可佩服的。在罪人中我个是罪魁。

This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

1:16 然而我蒙了怜悯,是因耶稣基督要在我这罪魁身上,显明他一切的忍耐,给后来信他得永生的人作榜样。

Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

1:17 但愿尊贵,荣耀归与那不能朽坏不能看见永世的君王,独一的神,直到永永远远。阿们。

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

1:18 我儿提摩太阿,我照从前指着你的预言,将这命令交托你,叫你因此可以打那美好的杖。

This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;

1:19 常存信心,和无亏的良心。有人丢弃良心,就在真道上如同船破坏了一般。

Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:

1:20 其中有许米乃和亚历山大。我已经把他们交给撒但,使他们受责罚,就不再谤渎了。

Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.



新约 -- 提摩太前书(1 Timothy) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

2:1 我劝你第一要为万人恳求祷告,代求,祝谢。

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

2:2 为君王和一切在位的也该如此。使我们可以敬虔端正,平安无事的度日。

For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

2:3 这是好的,在神我们救主面前可蒙悦讷。

For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

2:4 他愿意万人得救,明白真道。

Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

2:5 因为只有一位神,在神和人中间,只有一位中保,乃是降世为人的基督耶稣。

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

2:6 他舍自己作万人的赎价。到了时候,这事必证明出来。

Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

2:7 我为此奉派,作传道的,作使徒,作外邦人的师傅,教导他们相信,学习涉道。我说的是真话,并不是谎言。

Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.

2:8 我愿男人无忿怒,无争论,(争论或作疑惑),举起圣洁的手,随处祷告。

I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

2:9 又愿女人廉耻,自守,以正派衣裳为妆饰,不以编发,黄金,珍珠,和贵价的衣裳为妆饰。

In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

2:10 只要有善行。这才与自称是敬神的女人相宜。

But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

2:11 女人要沉静学道,一味的顺服。

Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

2:12 我不许女人讲道,也不许他辖管男人,只要沉静。

But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

2:13 因为先造的是亚当,后造的是夏娃。

For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

2:14 且不是亚当被引诱,乃是女人被引诱,陷在罪里。

And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

2:15 然而女人若常存信心爱心,又圣洁自守,就必在生产上得救。

Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.



新约 -- 提摩太前书(1 Timothy) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

3:1 人若想得监督的职分,就是羡慕善工。这话是可信的。

This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.

3:2 作监督的,必须无可指责,只作一个妇人的丈夫,有节制,自守,端正。乐意接待远人,善于教导。

A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

3:3 不因酒滋事,不打人,只要温和,不争竞,不贪财。

Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

3:4 好好管理自己的家,使儿女凡事端庄顺服。(或作端端庄庄的使儿女顺服)

One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

3:5 人若不知道管理自己的家,焉能照管神的教会呢。

(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

3:6 初入教的不可作监督,恐怕他自高自大,就落在魔鬼所受的刑罚里。

Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.

3:7 监督也必须在教外有好名声,恐怕被人毁谤,落在魔鬼的网罗里。

Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

3:8 论执事的也是如此,必须端庄,不一口两舌,不好喝酒,不贪不义之财。

Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;

3:9 要存清洁的良心,固守真道的奥秘。

Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.

3:10 这等人也要先受试验。若没有可责之处,然后叫他们作执事。

And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless.

3:11 女执事(原文作女人)也是如此,必须端庄,不说谗言,有节制,凡事忠心。

Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.

3:12 执事只要作一个妇人的丈夫,好好管理儿女和自己的家。

Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.

3:13 因为善作执事的,自己就得到美好的地步,并且在基督耶稣里的真道上大有胆量。

For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.

3:14 我指望快到你那里去,所以先将这些事写给你。

These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly:

3:15 倘若我耽延日久,你也可以知道在神的家中当怎样行。这家就是永生神的教会,真理的柱石和根基。

But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

3:16 大哉,敬虔的奥秘,无人不以为然,就是神在肉身显现,被圣灵称义,(或作在灵性称义),被天使看见,被传于外邦,被世人信服,被接在荣耀里。

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.



新约 -- 提摩太前书(1 Timothy) -- 第 4 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

4:1 圣灵明说,在后来的时候,必有人离弃真道,听从那引诱人的(邪)灵,和鬼魔的道理。

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

4:2 这是因为说谎之人的假冒。这等人的良心,如同被热铁烙惯了一般。

Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

4:3 他们禁止嫁娶,又禁戒食物,(或作又叫人戒荤)就是神所造叫那信而明白真道的人,感谢着领受的。

Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

4:4 凡神所造的物,都是好的。若感谢着领受,就没有一样可弃的。

For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:

4:5 都因神的道和人的祈求,成为圣洁了。

For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

4:6 你若将这些事题醒弟兄们,便是基督耶稣的好执事,在真道的话语,和你向来所服从的善道上,得了教育。

If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.

4:7 只是要弃绝那世俗的言语,和老妇荒渺的话,在敬虔上操练自己。

But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.

4:8 操练身体,益处还少。惟独敬虔,凡事都有益处。因有今生和来生的应许。

For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

4:9 这话是可信的,是十分可佩服的。

This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.

4:10 我们劳苦努力,正是为此。因我们的指望在乎永生的神。他是万人的救主,更是信徒的救主。

For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

4:11 这些事你要吩咐人,也要教导人。

These things command and teach.

4:12 不可叫人小看你年轻。总要在言语,行为,爱心,信心,清洁上,都作信徒的榜样。

Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

4:13 你要以宣读,劝勉,教导为念,直等到我来。

Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.

4:14 你不可轻忽所得的恩赐,就是从前藉着预言,在众长老按手的时候,赐给你的。

Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.

4:15 这些事你要殷勤去作,并要在此专心,使众人看出你的长进来。

Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.

4:16 你要谨慎自己和自己的教训,要在这些事上恒心。因为这样行,又能救自己,又能救听你的人。

Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.



新约 -- 提摩太前书(1 Timothy) -- 第 5 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

5:1 不可严责老年人,只要劝他们如同父亲。劝少年人如同弟兄。

Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;

5:2 劝老年妇女如同母亲。劝少年妇女如同姐妹。总要清清洁洁的。

The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.

5:3 要尊敬那真为寡妇的。

Honour widows that are widows indeed.

5:4 若寡妇有儿女,或有孙子孙女,便叫他们先在自己的家中学着行孝,报答亲恩,因为这在神面前是可悦纳的。

But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.

5:5 那独居无靠真为寡妇的,是仰赖神,昼夜不住的祈求祷告。

Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.

5:6 但那好宴乐的寡妇,正活着的时候也是死的。

But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.

5:7 这些事你要嘱咐他们,叫他们无可指责。

And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless.

5:8 人若不看顾亲属,就是背了真道,比不信的人还不好。不看顾自己家里的人,更是如此。

But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

5:9 寡妇记在册上,必须年纪到六十岁,从来只作一个丈夫的妻子,

Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man,

5:10 又有行善的名声,就如养育儿女,接待远人,洗圣徒的脚,救济遭难的人,竭力行各样善事。

Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.

5:11 至于年轻的寡妇,就可以辞他。因为他们的情欲发动,违背基督的时候,就想要嫁人。

But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry;

5:12 他们被定罪,是因废弃了当初所许的愿。

Having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith.

5:13 并且他们又习惯懒惰,挨家闲游。不但是懒惰,又说长道短,好管闲事,说些不当说的话。

And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.

5:14 所以我愿意年轻的寡妇嫁人,生养儿女,治理家务,不给敌人辱骂的把柄。

I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.

5:15 因为已经有转去随从撒但的。

For some are already turned aside after Satan.

5:16 信主的妇女,若家中有寡妇,自己就当救济他们,不可累着教会,好使教会能救济那真无倚靠的寡妇。

If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.

5:17 那善于管理教会的长老,当以为配受加倍的敬奉。那劳苦传道教导人的,更当如此。

Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.

5:18 因为经上说,牛在场上踹谷的时候,不可笼住它的嘴。又说,工人得工价是应当的。

For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

5:19 控告长老的呈子,非有两三个见证就不要收。

Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.

5:20 犯罪的人,当在众人面前责备他,叫其馀的人也可以惧怕。

Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

5:21 我在神和基督耶稣并蒙拣选的天使面前嘱咐你,要遵守这些话,不可存成见,行事也不可有偏心。

I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.

5:22 给人行按手的礼,不可急促。不要在别人的罪上有分。要保守自己清洁。

Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure.

5:23 因你胃口不清,屡次患病,再不要照常喝水,可以稍微用点酒。

Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities.

5:24 有些人的罪是明显的,如同先到审判案前。有些人的罪是随后跟了去的。

Some men's sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after.

5:25 这样,善行也有明显的。那不明显的,也不能隐藏。

Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot be hid.



新约 -- 提摩太前书(1 Timothy) -- 第 6 章 ( 本篇共有 6 章 )[]

6:1 凡在轭下作仆人的,当以自己主人配受十分的恭敬,免得神的名和道理,被人亵渎。

Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed.

6:2 仆人有信道的主人,不可因为与他是弟兄就轻看他。更要加意服事他。因为得服事之益处的,是信道蒙爱的。你要以此教训人,劝勉人。

And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort.

6:3 若有人传异教,不服从我们主耶稣基督纯正的话,与那合乎敬虔的道理。

If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;

6:4 他是自高自大,一无所知,专好问难争辩言词,从此就生出嫉妒,分争,毁谤,妄疑,

He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,

6:5 并那坏了心术,失丧真理之人的争竞。他们以敬虔为得利的门路。

Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

6:6 然而敬虔加上知足的心便是大利了。

But godliness with contentment is great gain.

6:7 因为我们没有带什么到世上来,也不能带什么去。

For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

6:8 只要有衣有食,就当知足。

And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

6:9 但那些想发财的人,就陷在迷惑,落在网罗,和许多无知有害的私欲里,叫人沉在败坏和灭亡中。

But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

6:10 贪财是万恶之根。有人贪恋钱财,就被引诱离了真道,用许多愁苦把自己刺透了。

For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

6:11 但你这属神的人,要逃避这些事,追求公义,敬虔,信心,爱心,忍耐,温柔。

But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

6:12 你要为真道打那美好的仗,持定永生。你为此被召,也在许多见证人面前,已经作了那美好的见证。

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

6:13 我在叫万物生活的神面前,并在向本丢彼拉多作过那美好见证的基督耶稣面前嘱咐你,

I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;

6:14 要守这命令,毫不玷污,无可指责,直到我们的主耶稣基督显现。

That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:

6:15 到了日期,那可称颂独有权能的,万王之王,万主之主,

Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

6:16 就是那独一不死,住在人不能靠近的光里,是人未曾看见,也是不能看见的,要将他显明出来。但愿尊贵和永远的权能,都归给他。阿们。

Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.

6:17 你要嘱咐那些今世富足的人,不要渍高,也不要倚靠无定的钱财。只要倚靠那厚赐百物给我们享受的神。

Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;

6:18 又要嘱咐他们行善,在好事上富足,甘心施舍,乐意供给人,(供给或作体贴)

That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;

6:19 为自己积成美好的根基,豫备将来,叫他们持定那真正的生命。

Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

6:20 提摩太阿,你要保守所托付你的,躲避世俗的虚谈,和那敌真道似是而非的学问。

O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:

6:21 已经有人自称有这学问,就偏离了真道。愿恩惠常与你们同在。

Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.



新约 -- 提摩太后书(2 Timothy) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 4 章 )[]

1:1 奉神旨意,照着在基督耶稣里生命的应许,作基督耶稣使徒的保罗,

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus,

1:2 写信给我亲爱的儿子提摩太。愿恩惠怜悯平安,从父神和我们主基督耶稣,归与你。

To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

1:3 我感谢神,就是我接续祖先,用清洁的良心所事奉的神,祈祷的时候,不住的想念你,

I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day;

1:4 记念你的眼泪,昼夜切切的想要见你,好叫我满心快乐。

Greatly desiring to see thee, being mindful of thy tears, that I may be filled with joy;

1:5 想到你心里无伪之信。这信是先在你外祖母罗以,和你母亲友尼基心里的。我深信也在你的心里。

When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also.

1:6 为此我题醒你,使你将神藉我按手所给你的恩赐,再如火挑旺起来。

Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.

1:7 因为神赐给我们,不是胆怯的心,乃是刚强,仁爱,谨守的心。

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

1:8 你不要以给我们的主作见证为耻,也不要以我这为主被囚的为耻。总要按神的能力,与我为福音同受苦难。

Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;

1:9 神救了我们,以圣召召我们,不是按我们的行为,乃是按他的旨意,和恩典。这恩典是万古之先,在基督耶稣里赐给我们的。

Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

1:10 但如今藉着我们救主基督耶稣的显现,才表明出来了。他已经把死废去,藉着福音,将不能坏的生命彰显出来。

But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

1:11 我为这福音奉派作传道的,作使徒,作师傅。

Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.

1:12 为这缘故,我也受这些苦难。然而我不以为耻。因为我知道我所信的是谁,也深信他能保全我所交付他的,(或作他所交托我的)直到那日。

For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

1:13 你从我听的那纯正话语的规模,要用在基督耶稣里的信心和爱心,常常守着。

Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

1:14 从前所交托你的善道,你要靠着那住在我们里面的圣灵,牢牢的守着。

That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.

1:15 凡在亚细亚的人都离弃我,这是你知道的。其中有腓吉路和黑摩其尼。

This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.

1:16 愿主怜悯阿尼色弗一家的人。因他屡次使我畅快,不以我的锁链为耻。

The Lord give mercy unto the house of Onesiphorus; for he oft refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain:

1:17 反倒在罗马的时候,殷勤的找我,并且找着了。

But, when he was in Rome, he sought me out very diligently, and found me.

1:18 愿主使他在那日得主的怜悯。他在以弗所怎样多多的服事我,是你明明知道的。

The Lord grant unto him that he may find mercy of the Lord in that day: and in how many things he ministered unto me at Ephesus, thou knowest very well.



新约 -- 提摩太后书(2 Timothy) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 4 章 )[]

2:1 我儿阿,你要在基督耶稣的恩典上刚强起来。

Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

2:2 你在许多见证人面前听见我所教训的,也要交托那忠心能教导别人的人。

And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

2:3 你要和我同受苦难,好像基督耶稣的精兵。

Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

2:4 凡在军中当兵的,不将世物缠身,好叫那招他当兵的人喜悦。

No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

2:5 人若在场上比武,非按规矩,就不能得冠冕。

And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.

2:6 劳力的农夫,理当先得粮食。

The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.

2:7 我所说的话你要思想。因为凡事主必给你聪明。

Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.

2:8 你要记念耶稣基督乃是大卫的后裔。他从死里复活,正合乎我所传的福音。

Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:

2:9 我为这福音受苦难,甚至被捆绑,像犯人一样。然而神的道,却不被捆绑。

Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.

2:10 所以我为选民凡事忍耐,叫他们也可以得着那在基督耶稣的救恩,和永远的荣耀。

Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.

2:11 有可信的话说,我们若与基督同死,也必与他同活。

It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:

2:12 我们若能忍耐,也必和他一同作王。我们若不认他,他也必不认我们。

If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:

2:13 我们纵然失信,他仍是可信的。因为他不能背乎自己。

If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

2:14 你要使众人回想这些事,在主面前嘱咐他们,不可为言语争辩。这事没有益处的,只能败坏听见的人。

Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.

2:15 你当竭力,在神面前得蒙喜悦,作无愧的工人,按着正意分解真理的道。

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

2:16 但要远避世俗的虚谈。因为这等人必进到更不敬虔的地步。

But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

2:17 他们的话如同毒疮,越烂越大。其中有许米乃和腓理徒。

And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;

2:18 他们偏离了真道,说复活的事已过,就败坏好些人的信心。

Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.

2:19 然而神坚固的根基立住了。上面有这印记说,主认识谁是他的人。又说,凡称呼主名的人,总要离开不义。

Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

2:20 在大户人家,不但有金器银器,也有木器瓦器。有作为贵重的,有作为卑贱的。

But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.

2:21 人若自洁,脱离卑贱的事,就必作贵重的器皿,成为圣洁,合乎主用,豫备行各样的善事。

If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.

2:22 你要逃避少年的私欲,同那清心祷告主的人追求公义,信德,仁爱,和平。

Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

2:23 惟有那愚拙无学问的辩论,总要弃绝。因为知道这等事是起争竞的。

But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.

2:24 然而主的仆人不可争竞,只要温温和和的待众人,善于教导,存心忍耐,

And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,

2:25 用温柔劝戒那抵挡的人。或者给他们悔改的心,可以明白真道。

In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

2:26 叫他们这已经被魔鬼任意掳去的,可以醒悟,脱离他的网罗。

And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

3:1 你该知道,末世必有危险的日子来到。

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

3:2 因为那时人要专顾自己,贪爱钱财,自夸,狂傲,谤??,违背父母,忘恩负义,心不圣洁,

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3:3 无亲情,不解怨,好说才言,不能自约,性情凶暴,不爱良善,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

3:4 卖主卖友,任意妄为,自高自大,爱宴乐不爱神。

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

3:5 有敬虔的外貌,却背了敬虔的实意。这等人你要躲开。

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

3:6 那偷进人家,牢笼无知妇女的,正是这等人。这些妇女担负罪恶,被各样的私欲引诱。

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

3:7 常常学习,终久不能明白真道。

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

3:8 从前雅尼和佯庇怎样敌挡摩西,这等人也怎样敌挡真道。他们的心地坏了,在真道上是可废弃的。

Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

3:9 然而他们不能再这样敌挡,因为他们的愚昧,必在众人面前显露出来,像那二人一样。

But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

3:10 但你已经服从了我的教训,品行,志向,信心,宽容,爱心,忍耐,

But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,

3:11 以及我在安提阿,以哥念,路司得,所遭遇的逼迫,苦难。我所忍受是何等的逼迫。但从这一切苦难中主都把我救出来了。

Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.

3:12 不但如此,凡立志在基督耶稣里敬虔度日的,也都要受逼迫。

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

3:13 只是作恶的,和迷惑人的,必越久越恶,他欺哄人也被人欺哄。

But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

3:14 但你所学习的,所确信的,要存在心里。因为你知道是跟谁学的。

But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

3:15 并且知道你是从小明白圣经。这圣经能使你因信基督耶稣有得救的智慧。

And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

3:16 圣经都是神所默示的,(或作凡神默示的圣经)于教训,督责,使人归正,教导人学义,都是有益的。

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

3:17 叫属神的人得以完全,豫备行各样的善事。

That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.



新约 -- 提摩太后书(2 Timothy) -- 第 4 章 ( 本篇共有 4 章 )[]

4:1 我在神面前,并在将来审判活人死人的基督耶稣面前,凭着他的显现和他的国度嘱咐你。

I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

4:2 务要传道。无论得时不得时,总要专心,并用百般的忍耐,各样的教训,责备人,警戒人,劝勉人。

Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

4:3 因为时候要到,人必厌烦纯正的道理。耳朵发痒,就随从自己的情欲,增添好些师傅。

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

4:4 并且掩耳不听真道,偏向荒渺的言语。

And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

4:5 你却要凡事谨慎,忍受苦难,作传道的工夫,尽你的职分。

But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

4:6 我现在被浇奠,我离世的时候到了。

For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

4:7 那美好的仗我已经打过了。当跑的路我已经跑尽了。所信的道我已经守住了。

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

4:8 从此以后,有公义的冠冕为我存留,就是按着公义审判的主到了那日要赐给我的。不但赐给我,也赐给凡爱慕他显现的人。

Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

4:9 你要赶紧的到我这里来。

Do thy diligence to come shortly unto me:

4:10 因为底马贪爱现今的世界,就离弃我往帖撒罗尼迦去了。革勒士往加拉太去。提多往挞马太去。

For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.

4:11 独有路加在我这里。你来的时候要把马可带来。因为他在传道的事上于我有益处。(传道或作服事我)

Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry.

4:12 我已经打发推基古往以弗所去。

And Tychicus have I sent to Ephesus.

4:13 我在特罗亚留于加布的那件外衣,你来的时候可以带来。那些书也要带来。更要紧的是那些皮卷。

The cloke that I left at Troas with Carpus, when thou comest, bring with thee, and the books, but especially the parchments.

4:14 铜匠亚历山大多多的害我。主必照他所行的报应他。

Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:

4:15 你也要防备他。因为他极力敌挡了我们的话。

Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.

4:16 我初次申诉,没有人前来帮助,竟都离弃我。但愿这罪不归与他们。

At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge.

4:17 惟有主站在我旁边,加给我力量,使福音被我尽都传明,叫外邦人都听见。我也从狮子口里被救出来。

Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.

4:18 主必救我脱离诸般的凶恶,也必救我进他的天国。愿荣耀归给他,直到永永远远。阿们。

And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

4:19 问百基拉,亚居拉,和阿尼色弗一家的人安。

Salute Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus.

4:20 以拉都在哥林多住下了。特罗非摩病了,我就留他在米利都。

Erastus abode at Corinth: but Trophimus have I left at Miletum sick.

4:21 你要赶紧在冬天以前到我这里来。有友布罗,布田,利奴,革老底亚,和众弟兄,都问你安。

Do thy diligence to come before winter. Eubulus greeteth thee, and Pudens, and Linus, and Claudia, and all the brethren.

4:22 愿主与你的灵同在。愿恩惠常与你们同在。

The Lord Jesus Christ be with thy spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.



新约 -- 提多书(Titus) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 3 章 )[]

1:1 神的仆人,耶稣基督的使徒保罗,凭着神选民的信心,与敬虔真理的知识,

Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;

1:2 盼望那无谎言的神在万古之先所应许的永生,

In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

1:3 到了日期,藉着传扬的工夫,把他的道显明了。这传扬的责任,是按着神我们救主的命令交托了我。

But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;

1:4 现在写信给提多,就是照着我们共信之道作我真儿子的。愿恩惠平安,从父神和我们的救主基督耶稣归与你。

To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.

1:5 我从前留你在克里特,是要你将没有辨完的事都辨整齐了,又照我所吩咐你的,在各城设立长老。

For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:

1:6 若有无可指责的人,只作一个妇人的丈夫,儿女也是信主的,没有人告诉他们是放荡不服约束的,就可以设立。

If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.

1:7 监督既是神的管家,必须无可指责,不任性,不暴躁,不因酒滋事,不打人,不贪无义之财,

For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;

1:8 乐意接待远人,好善,庄重,公平,圣洁,自持。

But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;

1:9 坚守所教真实的道理,就能将纯正的教训劝化人。又能把争辩的人驳倒了。

Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

1:10 因为有许多人不服约束,说虚空话,欺哄人。那奉割礼的,更是这样。

For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:

1:11 这些人的口总要堵住。他们因贪不义之财,将不该教导的教导人,败坏人的全家。

Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.

1:12 有克里特人中的一个本地先知说,克里特人常说谎话,乃是恶兽,又馋又懒。

One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.

1:13 这个见证是真的。所以你要严严的责备他们,使他们在真道上纯全无疵。

This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

1:14 不听犹太人荒渺的言语,和离弃真道之人的诫命。

Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

1:15 在洁净的人,凡物都洁净。在污秽不信的人,什么都不洁净。连心地和天良,也都污秽了。

Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

1:16 他们说是认识神行事却和他相背。本是可憎恶的,是悖逆的,在各样善事上是可废弃的。

They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.



新约 -- 提多书(Titus) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 3 章 )[]

2:1 但你所讲的,总要合乎那纯正的道理。

But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:

2:2 劝老年人,要有节制,端庄,自守,在信心爱心忍耐上,都要纯全无疵。

That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.

2:3 又劝老年妇人,举止行动要恭敬,不说谗言,不给酒作奴仆,用善道教训人。

The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;

2:4 好指教少年妇人,爱丈夫,爱儿女,

That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,

2:5 谨守贞洁,料理家务,待人有恩,顺服自己的丈夫,免得神的道理被毁谤。

To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

2:6 又劝少年人要谨守。

Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.

2:7 你自己凡事要显出善行的榜样,在教训上要正直,端庄,

In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,

2:8 言语纯全,无可指责,叫那反对的人,既无处可说我们的不是,便自觉羞愧。

Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.

2:9 劝仆人要顺服自己的主人,凡事讨他的喜欢。不可顶撞他。

Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again;

2:10 不可私拿东西。要显为忠诚,以致凡事尊荣我们救主神的道。

Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.

2:11 因为神救众人的恩典,已经显明出来,

For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,

2:12 教训我们除去不敬虔的心,和世俗的情欲,在今世自守,公义,敬虔度日。

Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

2:13 等候所盼望的福,并等候至大的神,和(或作无和字)我们救主耶稣基督的荣耀显现。

Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

2:14 他为我们舍了自己,要赎我们脱离一切罪恶,又洁净我们,特作自己的子民,热心为善。

Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

2:15 这些事你要讲明,劝戒人,用各等权柄责备人。不可叫人轻看你。

These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.



新约 -- 提多书(Titus) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 3 章 )[]

3:1 你要题醒众人,叫他们顺服作官的,掌权的,遵他的命,豫备行各样的善事。

Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,

3:2 不要毁谤,不要争竞,总要和平,向众人大显温柔。

To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.

3:3 我们从前也是无知,悖逆,受迷惑,服事各样私欲和宴乐,常存恶毒(或作阴毒)嫉妒的心,是可恨的,又是彼此相恨。

For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.

3:4 但到了神我们救主的恩慈,和他向人所施的慈爱显明的时候,

But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,

3:5 他便救了我们,并不是因我们自己所行的义,乃是照他的怜悯,藉着重生的洗,和圣灵的更新。

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

3:6 圣灵就是神藉着耶稣基督我们救主,厚厚浇灌在我们身上的。

Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;

3:7 好叫我们因他的恩得称为义,可以凭着永生的盼望成为后嗣。(或作可以凭着盼望承受永生)。

That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

3:8 这话是可信的,我也愿你把这些事,切切实实的讲明,使那些已信神的人,留心作正经事业。(或作留心行善)这都是美事,并且与人有益。

This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.

3:9 要远避无知的辩论,和家谱的空谈,以及分争,并因律法而起的争竞。因为这都是虚妄无益的。

But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

3:10 分门结党的人,警戒过一两次,就要弃绝他。

A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;

3:11 因为知道这等人已经背道,犯了罪,自己明知不是,还是去作。

Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

3:12 我打发亚提马,或是推基古,到你那里去的时候,你要赶紧往尼哥波立去见我。因为我已经定意在那里过冬。

When I shall send Artemas unto thee, or Tychicus, be diligent to come unto me to Nicopolis: for I have determined there to winter.

3:13 你要赶紧给律师西纳,和亚波罗送行,叫他们没有缺乏。

Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing be wanting unto them.

3:14 并且我们的人要学习升经事业,(或作要学习行善)豫备所需用的,免得不结果子。

And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.

3:15 同我在一处的人都问你安。请代问那些因有信心爱我们的人安。愿恩惠常与你们众人同在。

All that are with me salute thee. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.



新约 -- 腓利门书(Philemon) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 1 章 )[]

1:1 为基督耶稣被囚的保罗,同兄弟提摩太,写信给我们所亲爱的同工腓利门,

Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,

1:2 和妹子亚腓亚,并与我们同当兵的亚基布,以及在你家的教会。

And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:

1:3 愿恩惠平安,从神我们的父,和主耶稣基督,归与你们。

Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:4 我祷告的时候题到你,常为你感谢我的神。

I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,

1:5 因听说你的爱心,并你向主耶稣和众圣徒的信心。(或作因听说你向主耶稣和众圣徒有爱心有信心)

Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;

1:6 愿你与人所同有的信心显出功效,使人知道你们各样善事都是为基督作的。

That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.

1:7 兄弟阿,我为你的爱心,大有快乐,大得安慰。因众圣徒的心从你得了畅快。

For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.

1:8 我虽然靠着基督能放胆吩咐你合宜的事。

Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,

1:9 然而像我这有年纪的保罗,现在又是为基督耶稣被囚的,宁可凭爱心求你。

Yet for love's sake I rather beseech thee, being such an one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.

1:10 就是为我在捆锁中所生的儿子阿尼西母(此名就是有益处的意思)求你。

I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:

1:11 他从前与你没有益处,但如今与你我都有益处。

Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:

1:12 我现在打发他亲自回你那里去。他是我心上的人。

Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:

1:13 我本来有意将他留下,在我为福音所受的捆锁中替你伺候我。

Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:

1:14 但不知道你的意思,我不愿意这样行,叫你的善行不是出于勉强,乃是出于甘心。

But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.

1:15 他暂时离开你,或者是叫你永远得着他。

For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;

1:16 不再是奴仆,乃是高过奴仆,是亲爱的兄弟,在我实在是如此,何况在你呢。这也不拘是按肉体说,是按主说。

Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?

1:17 你若以我为同伴,就收纳他,如同收纳我一样。

If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.

1:18 他若亏负你,或欠你什么,都归在我的账上。

If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;

1:19 我必偿还。这是我保罗亲笔写的。我并不用对你说,连你自己也亏欠于我。

I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.

1:20 兄弟阿,望你使我在主里因你得快乐。(或作益处)并望你使我的心在基督里得畅快。

Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.

1:21 我写信给你,深信你必顺服,知道你所要行的,必过于我所说的。

Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.

1:22 此外你还要给我豫备住处,因为我盼望藉着你们的祷告,必蒙恩到你们那里去。

But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.

1:23 为基督耶稣与我同坐监的以巴弗问你安。

There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;

1:24 与我同工的马可,亚里达古,底马,路加,也都问你安。

Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.

1:25 愿我们主耶稣基督的恩常在你的心里。阿们。

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.



新约 -- 希伯来书(Hebrews) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

1:1 神既在古时藉着众先知,多次多方的晓谕列祖,

God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

1:2 就在这末世,藉着他儿子晓谕我们,又早已立他为承受万有的,也曾藉着他创造诸世界。

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

1:3 他是神荣耀所发的光辉,是神本体的真像,常用他权能的命令托住万有,他洗净了人的罪,就坐在高天至大者的右边。

Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

1:4 他所承受的名,既比天使的名更尊贵,就远超过天使。

Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

1:5 所有的天使,神从来对那一个说,你是我的儿子,我今日生你。又指着那一个说,我要作他的父,他要作我的子。

For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?

1:6 再者,神使长子到世上来的时候,(或作神再使长子到世上来的时候)就说,神的使者都要拜他。

And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

1:7 论到使者,又说,神以风为使者,以火焰为仆役。

And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

1:8 论到子却说,神阿,你的宝座是永永远远的,你的国权是正直的。

But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

1:9 你喜爱公义,恨恶罪恶。所以神就是你的神,用喜乐油膏你,胜过膏你的同伴。

Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

1:10 又说,主阿,你起初立了地的根基,天也是你手所造的。

And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:

1:11 天地都要灭没,你却要长存。天地都要像衣服渐渐旧了。

They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;

1:12 你要将天地卷起来,像一件外衣,天地都改变了。惟有你永不改变,你的年数没有穷尽。

And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

1:13 所有的天使,神从来对那一个说,你坐在我的右边,等我使你仇敌作你的脚凳。

But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?

1:14 天使岂不都是服役的灵,奉差遣为那将要承受救恩的人效力吗。

Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?



新约 -- 希伯来书(Hebrews) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

2:1 所以我们当越发郑重所听见的道理,恐怕我们随流失去。

Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.

2:2 那藉着天使所传的话,既是确定的,凡干犯悖逆的,都受了该受的报应。

For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;

2:3 我们若忽略这吗大的救恩,怎能逃罪呢。这救恩起先主亲自讲的,后来是听见的人给我们证实了。

How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

2:4 神又按自己的旨意,用神迹奇事,和百般的异能,并圣灵的恩赐,同他们作见证。

God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?

2:5 我们所说将来的世界,神原没有交给天使管辖。

For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.

2:6 但有人在经上某处证明说,人算什么,你竟顾念他,世人算什么,你竟眷顾他。

But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him?

2:7 你叫他比天使微小一点,(或作你叫他暂时比天使小)赐他荣耀尊贵为冠冕,并将你手所造的都派他管理。

Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:

2:8 叫万物都服在他的脚下。既叫万物都服他,就没有剩下一样不服他的。只是如今我们还不见万物都服他。

Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.

2:9 惟独见那成为比天使小一点的耶稣,(或作惟独见耶稣暂时比天使小)因为受死的苦,就得了尊贵荣耀为冠冕,叫他因着神的恩,为人人尝了死味。

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

2:10 原来那为万物所属,为万物所本的,要领许多的儿子进荣耀里去,使救他们的元帅,因受苦难得以完全,本是合宜的。

For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

2:11 因那使人成圣的,和那些得以成圣的,都是出于一。所以他称他们为弟兄,也不以为耻,

For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

2:12 说,我要将你的名传与我的弟兄,在会中我要颂杨你。

Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.

2:13 又说,我要倚赖他。又说,看哪,我与神所给我的儿女。

And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.

2:14 儿女既同有血肉之体,他也照样亲自成了血肉之体。特要藉着死,败坏那掌死权的,就是魔鬼。

Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

2:15 并要释放那些一生因怕死而为奴仆的人。

And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

2:16 他并不救拔天使,乃是救拔亚伯拉罕的后裔。

For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.

2:17 所以他凡事该与他的弟兄相同,为要在神的事上,成为慈悲忠信的大祭司,为百姓的罪献上挽回祭。

Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.

2:18 他自己既然被试探而受苦,就能搭救被试探的人。

For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.



新约 -- 希伯来书(Hebrews) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

3:1 同蒙天召的圣洁弟兄阿,你们应当思想,我们所认为使者,为大祭司的耶稣。

Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;

3:2 他为那设立他的尽忠,如同摩西在神的全家尽忠一样。

Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.

3:3 他比摩西算是更配多得荣耀,好像建造房屋的比房屋更尊荣。

For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.

3:4 因为房屋都必有人建造。但建造万物的就是神。

For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.

3:5 摩西为仆人,在神的全家诚然尽忠,为要证明将来必传说的事。

And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;

3:6 但基督为儿子,治理神的家。我们若将可夸的盼望和胆量,坚持到底,便是他的家了。

But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

3:7 圣灵有话说,你们今日若听他的话,

Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,

3:8 就不可硬着心,像在旷野惹他发怒,试探他的时候一样。

Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

3:9 在那里,你们的祖宗试我探我,并且观看我的作为,有四十年之久。

When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.

3:10 所以我厌烦那世代的人,说,他们心里常常迷糊,竟不晓得我的作为。

Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.

3:11 我就在怒中起誓说,他们断不可进入我的安息。

So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)

3:12 弟兄们,你们要谨慎,免得你们中间,或有人存着不信的恶心,把永生神离弃了。

Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

3:13 总要趁着还有今日,天天彼此相劝,免得你们中间,有人被罪迷惑,心里就刚硬了。

But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

3:14 我们若将起初确实的信心,坚持到底,就在基督里有分了。

For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

3:15 经上说,你们今日若听他的话,就不可硬着心,像惹他发怒的日子一样。

While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

3:16 那时听见他话惹他发怒的是谁呢。岂不是跟着摩西从埃及出来的众人吗。

For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.

3:17 神四十年之久,又厌烦谁呢。岂不是那些犯罪尸首倒在旷野的人吗。

But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?

3:18 又向谁起誓,不容他们进入他的安息呢。岂不是向那些不信从的人吗。

And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?

3:19 这样看来,他们不能进入安息,是因为不信的缘故了。

So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.



新约 -- 希伯来书(Hebrews) -- 第 4 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

4:1 我们既蒙留下有进入他安息的应许,就当畏惧,免得我们中间,(我们原文作你们)或有人似乎是赶不上了。

Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.

4:2 因为有福音传给我们,像传给他们一样。只是所听见的道与他们无益,因为他们没有信心与所听见的道调和。

For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

4:3 但我们已经相信的人,得以进入那安息,正如神所说,我在怒中起誓说,他们断不可进入我的安息。其实造物之工,从创世以来已经成全了。

For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

4:4 论到第七日,有一处说,到第七日神就歇了他一切的工。

For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.

4:5 又有一处说,他们断不可进入我的安息。

And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.

4:6 既有必进安息的人,那先前听见福音的,因为不信从,不得进去。

Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:

4:7 所以过了多年,就在大卫的书上,又限定一日,如以上所引的说,你们今日若听他的话,就不可硬着心。

Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.

4:8 若是约书亚已叫他们享了安息,后来神就不再题别的日子了。

For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.

4:9 这样看来,必另有一安息日的安息,为神的子民存留。

There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

4:10 因为那进入安息的,乃是歇了自己的工,正如神歇了他的工一样。

For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.

4:11 所以我们务必竭力进入那安息,免得有人学那不信从的样子跌倒了。

Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

4:12 神的道是活泼的,是有功效的,比一切两刃的剑更快,甚至魂与灵,骨节与骨髓,都能刺入剖开,连心中的思念和主意,都能辨明。

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

4:13 并且被造的,没有一样在他面前不显然的。原来万物,在那与我们有关系的主眼前,都是赤露敞开的。

Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

4:14 我们既然有一位已经升入高天尊荣的大祭司,就是神的儿子耶稣,便当持定所承认的道。

Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

4:15 因我们的大祭司,并非不能体恤我们的软弱。他也曾凡事受过试探,与我们一样。只是他没有犯罪。

For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

4:16 所以我们只管坦然无惧的,来到施恩的宝座前,为要得怜恤,蒙恩惠作随时的帮助。

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.



新约 -- 希伯来书(Hebrews) -- 第 5 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

5:1 凡从人间挑选的大祭司,是奉派替人辨理属神的事,为要献上礼物,和赎罪祭。(或作要为罪献上礼物和祭物)

For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins:

5:2 他能体谅那愚蒙的,和失迷的人,因为他自己也是被软弱所困。

Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.

5:3 故此他理当为百姓和自己献祭赎罪。

And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.

5:4 这大祭司的尊荣,没有人自取,惟要蒙神所召,像亚伦一样。

And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron.

5:5 如此,基督也不是自取荣耀作大祭司,乃是在乎向他说,你是我的儿子,我今日生你。的那一位。

So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.

5:6 就如经上又有一处说,你是照着麦基洗德的等次永远为祭司。

As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

5:7 基督在肉体的时候,既大声哀哭,流泪祷告恳求那能救他免死的主,就因他的虔诚,蒙了应允。

Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;

5:8 他虽然为儿子,还是因所受的苦难学了顺从。

Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

5:9 他既得以完全,就为凡顺从的的人,成了永远得救的根源。

And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

5:10 并蒙神照着麦基洗德的等次称他为大祭司。

Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.

5:11 论到麦基洗德,我们有好些话,并且难以解明,因为你们听不进去。

Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing.

5:12 看你们学习的工夫,本该作师傅,谁知还得有人将神圣言小学的开端,另教导你们。并且成了那必须吃奶,不能吃乾粮的人。

For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

5:13 凡只能吃奶的,都不熟练仁义的道理。因为他是婴孩。

For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

5:14 惟独长大成人的,才能吃乾粮,他们的心窍,习练得通达,就能分辨好歹了。

But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.



新约 -- 希伯来书(Hebrews) -- 第 6 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

6:1 所以我们应当离开基督道理的开端,竭力进到完全的地步。不必再立根基,就如那懊悔死行,信靠神,

Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

6:2 各样洗礼,按手之礼,死人复活,以及永远审判,各等教训。

Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

6:3 神若许我们,我们必如此行。

And this will we do, if God permit.

6:4 论到那些已经蒙了光照,尝过天恩的滋味,又于圣灵有分,

For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,

6:5 并尝过神善道的滋味,觉悟来世权能的人,

And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,

6:6 若是离弃道理,就不能叫他们从新懊悔了。因为他们把神的儿子重钉十字架,明明的羞辱他。

If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

6:7 就如一块田地,吃过屡次下的雨水,生长菜蔬合乎耕种的人用,就从神得福。

For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God:

6:8 若长荆棘和疾??,必被废弃,近于咒诅,结局就是焚烧。

But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.

6:9 亲爱的弟兄们,我们虽是这样说,却深信你们的行为强过这些,而且近乎得救。

But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.

6:10 因为神并非不公义,竟忘记你们所作的工,和你们为他名所显的爱心,就是先前伺候圣徒,如今还是伺候。

For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

6:11 我们愿你们各人都显出这样的殷勤,使你们有满足的指望,一直到底。

And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:

6:12 并且不懈怠。总要效法那些凭信心和忍耐承受应许的人。

That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

6:13 当初神应许亚伯拉罕的时候,因为没有比自己更大可以指着起誓的,就指着自己起誓说,

For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,

6:14 论福,我必赐大福给你。论子孙,我必叫你的子孙多起来。

Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.

6:15 这样,亚伯拉罕既恒久忍耐,就得了所应许的。

And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.

6:16 人都是指着比自己大的起誓。并且以起誓为实据,了结各样的争论

For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife.

6:17 照样,神愿意为那承受应许的人,格外显明他的旨意是不更改的,就起誓为证。

Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath:

6:18 藉这两件不更改的事,神决不能说谎,好叫我们这逃往避难所,持定摆在我们前头指望的人,可以大得勉励。

That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:

6:19 我们有这指望如同灵魂的锚,又坚固又牢靠,且通入幔内。

Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;

6:20 作先锋的耶稣,既照着麦基洗德的等次,成了永远的大祭司,就为我们进入幔内。

Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.



新约 -- 希伯来书(Hebrews) -- 第 7 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

7:1 这麦基洗德,就是撒冷王,又是至高神的祭司,本是长远为祭司的。他当亚伯拉罕杀败诸王回来的时候,就迎接他,给他祝福。

For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;

7:2 亚伯拉罕也将自己所得来的取十分之一给他。他头一个名翻出来,就是仁义王,他又名撒冷王,就是平安王的意思。

To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;

7:3 他无父,无母,无族谱,无生之始,无命之终,乃是与神的儿子相似。

Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

7:4 你们想一想,先祖亚伯拉罕,将自己所掳来上等之物取十分之一给他,这人是何等尊贵呢。

Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.

7:5 那是祭司职任的利未子孙,领命照例向百姓取十分之一,这百姓是自己的弟兄,虽是从亚伯拉罕身中生的,(身原文作腰),还是照例取十分之一

And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:

7:6 独有麦基洗德,不与他们同谱,倒收纳亚伯拉罕的十分之一,为那蒙应许的亚伯拉罕祝福。

But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.

7:7 从来位分大的给位分小的祝福,这是驳不倒的理。

And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better.

7:8 在这里收十分之一的都是必死的人。但在那里收十分之一的,有为他作见证的说,他是活的。

And here men that die receive tithes; but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth.

7:9 并且可说,那受十分之一的利未,也是藉着亚伯拉罕纳了十分之一。

And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.

7:10 因为麦基洗德迎接亚伯拉罕的时候,利未已经在他先祖的身中。(身原文作腰)

For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.

7:11 从前百姓在利未人祭司职任以下受律法,倘若藉这职任能得完全,又何用另外兴起一位祭司,照麦基洗德的等次,不照亚伦的等次呢。

If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?

7:12 祭司的职任既已更改,律法也必须更改。

For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

7:13 因为这话所指的人,本属别的支派,那支派里从来没有一人伺候祭坛。

For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.

7:14 我们的主分明是从犹大出来的。但这支派,摩西并没有题到祭司。

For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.

7:15 倘若照麦基洗德的样式,另外兴起一位祭司来,我的话更是显而易见的了。

And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,

7:16 他成为祭司,并不是照属肉体的条例,乃是照无穷之生命的大能。(无穷原文作不能毁坏)。

Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.

7:17 因为有给他作见证的说,你是照着麦基洗德的等次永远为祭司。

For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

7:18 先前的条例,因软弱无益,所以废掉了。

For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.

7:19 (律法原来一无所成)就引进了更美的指望,靠这指望我们便可以进到神面前。

For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.

7:20 再者,耶稣为祭司,并不是不起誓立的。

And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest:

7:21 至于那些祭司,原不是起誓立的,只有耶稣是起誓立的。因为那立他的对他说,主起了誓决不后悔,你是永远为祭司。

(For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:)

7:22 既是起誓立的,耶稣就作了更美之约的中保。

By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.

7:23 那些成为祭司的,数目本来多,是因为有死阻隔不能长久。

And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:

7:24 这位既是永远长存的,他祭司的职任,就长久不更换。

But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.

7:25 凡靠着他进到神面前的人,他都能拯救到底。因为他是长远活着,替他们祈求。

Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

7:26 像这样圣洁,无邪恶,无玷污,远离罪人,高过诸天的大祭司,原是与我们合宜的。

For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

7:27 他不像那些大祭司,每日必须先为自己的罪,后为百姓的罪献祭,因为他只一次将自己献上,就把这事成全了。

Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.

7:28 律法本是立软弱的人为大祭司。但在律法以后起誓的话,是立儿子为大祭司,乃是成全到永远的。

For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.



新约 -- 希伯来书(Hebrews) -- 第 8 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

8:1 我们所讲的事,其中第一要紧的,就是我们有这样的大祭司,已经坐在天上至大者宝座的右边,

Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;

8:2 在圣所,就是真帐幕里,作执事。这帐幕是主所支的,不是人所支的。

A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.

8:3 凡大祭司都是为献礼物和祭物设立的。所以这位大祭司也必须有所献的。

For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.

8:4 他若在地上,必不得为祭司,因为已经有照律法献礼物的祭司。

For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law:

8:5 他们供奉的事,本是天上事的形状和影像,正如摩西将要造帐幕的时候,蒙神警戒他,说,你要谨慎,作各样的物件,都要照着在山上指示你的样式。

Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.

8:6 如今耶稣所得的职任是更美的,正如他作更美之约的中保。这约原是凭更美之应许立的。

But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.

8:7 那前约若没有瑕疵,就无处寻求后约了。

For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.

8:8 所以主指责他的百姓说,(或作所以主指前约的缺欠说)日子将到,我要与以色列家,和犹大家,另立新约。

For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

8:9 不像我拉着他们祖宗的手,领他们出埃及的时候,与他们所立的约。因为他们不恒心守我的约,我也不理他们。这是主说的。

Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.

8:10 主又说,那些日子以后,我与以色列家所立的约乃是这样。我要将我的律法放在他们里面,写在他们心上,我要作他们的神,他们要作我的子民。

For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

8:11 他们不用各人教导自己的乡邻,和自己的弟兄,说,你该认识主。因为他们从最小的到至大的,都必认识我。

And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.

8:12 我要宽恕他们的不义,不再记念他们的罪愆。

For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

8:13 既说新约,就以前约为旧了。但那渐旧渐衰的,就必快归无有了。

In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.



新约 -- 希伯来书(Hebrews) -- 第 9 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

9:1 原来前约有礼拜的条例,和属世界的圣幕。

Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary.

9:2 因为有豫备的帐幕,头一层叫作圣所。里面有灯台,桌子,和陈设饼。

For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary.

9:3 第二幔子后,又有一层帐幕,叫作至圣所。

And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all;

9:4 有金香炉,(炉或作坛)有包金的约柜,柜里有盛吗哪的金罐,和亚伦发过芽的杖,并两块约版。

Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;

9:5 柜上面有荣耀基路伯的影芍着施恩座。(施恩原文作蔽罪)这几件我现在不能一一细说。

And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.

9:6 这些物件既如此豫备齐了,众祭司就常进头一层帐幕,行拜神的礼。

Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God.

9:7 至于第二层帐幕,惟有大祭司一年一次独自进去,没有不带着血,为自己和百姓的过错献上。

But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:

9:8 圣灵用此指明,头一层帐幕仍存的时候,进入至圣所的路还未显明。

The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:

9:9 那头一层帐幕作现今的一个表样,所献上的礼物和祭物,就着良心说,都不能叫礼拜的人得以完全。

Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;

9:10 这些事连那饮食和诸般洗濯的规矩,都不过是属肉体的条例,命定到振兴的时候为止。

Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.

9:11 但现在基督已经来到,作了将来美事的大祭司,经过那更大更全备的帐幕,不是人手所造也不是属乎这世界的。

But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

9:12 并且不用山羊和牛犊的血,乃用自己的血,只一次进入圣所,成了永远赎罪的事。

Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

9:13 若山羊和公牛的血,并母牛犊的灰洒在不洁的人身上,尚且叫人成圣,身体洁净。

For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:

9:14 何况基督藉着永远的灵,将自己无瑕无疵献给神,他的血岂不更能洗净你们的心。(原文作良心)除去你们的死行,使你们事奉那永生神吗。

How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

9:15 为此他作了新约的中保。既然受死赎了人在前约之时所犯的罪过,便叫蒙召之人得着所应许永远的产业。

And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

9:16 凡有遗命,必须等到留遗命的人死了。(遗命原文与约字同)

For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.

9:17 因为人死了,遗命才有效力,若留遗命的尚在,那遗命还有用处吗。

For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.

9:18 所以前约也不是不用血立的。

Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood.

9:19 因为摩西当日照着律法,将各样诫命传给众百姓,就拿朱红色绒和牛膝草,把牛犊山羊的血和水,洒在书上,又洒在众百姓身上,说,

For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people,

9:20 这血就是神与你们立约的凭据。

Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you.

9:21 他又照样把血洒在帐幕,和各样器皿上。

Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.

9:22 按着律法,凡物差不多都是用血洁净的,若不流血,罪就不得赦免了。

And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

9:23 照着天上样式作的物件,必须用这些祭物去洁净。但那天上的本物,自然当用更美的祭物去洁净。

It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

9:24 因为基督并不是进了人手所造的圣所,(这不过是真圣所的影像)乃是进了天堂,如今为我们显在神面前。

For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

9:25 也不是多次将自己献上,像那大祭司每年带着牛羊血进入圣所。(牛羊的血原文作不是自己的血)

Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;

9:26 如果这样,他从创世以来,就必多次受苦了。但如今在这末世显现一次,把自己献为祭,好除掉罪。

For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

9:27 按着定命,人人都有一死,死后且有审判。

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

9:28 这样,基督既然一次被献,担当了多人的罪,将来要向那等候他的人第二次显现,并与罪无关,乃是为拯救他们。

So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.



新约 -- 希伯来书(Hebrews) -- 第 10 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

10:1 律法既是将来美事的影儿,不是本物的真像,总不能藉着每年常献一样的祭物,叫那近前来的人得以完全。

For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

10:2 若不然,献祭的事岂不早已止住了吗。因为礼拜的人,良心既被洁净,就不再觉得有罪了。

For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.

10:3 但这些祭物是叫人每年想起罪来。

But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.

10:4 因为公牛和山羊的血,断不能除罪。

For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

10:5 所以基督到世上来的时候,就说,神阿祭物和礼物是你不愿意的,你曾给我豫备了身体。

Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:

10:6 燔祭和赎罪祭是你不喜欢的。

In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.

10:7 那时我说,神阿,我来了为要照你的旨意行。我的事在经卷上已经记载了。

Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

10:8 以上说,祭物和礼物,燔祭和赎罪祭,是你不愿意的,也是你不喜欢的,(这都是按着律法献的)。

Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;

10:9 后又说我来了为要照你的旨意行。可见他是除去在先的,为要立定在后的。

Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.

10:10 我们凭这旨意,靠耶稣基督只一次献上他的身体,就得以成圣。

By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

10:11 凡祭司天天站着事奉神,履次献上一样的祭物。这祭物永不能除罪。

And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:

10:12 但基督献了一次永远的赎罪祭,就在神的右边坐下了。

But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

10:13 从此等候他仇敌成了他的脚凳。

From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.

10:14 因为他一次献祭,便叫那得以成圣的人永远完全。

For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

10:15 圣灵也对我们作见证。因为他既已说过,

Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,

10:16 主说,那些日子以后,我与他们所立的约乃是这样。我要将我的律法写在他们心上,又要放在他们的里面。

This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

10:17 以后就说,我不再记念他们的罪愆,和他们的过犯。

And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

10:18 这些罪过既已赦免,就不用再为罪献祭了。

Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

10:19 弟兄们,我们既因耶稣的血,得以坦然进入至圣所,

Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,

10:20 是藉着他给我们开了一条又新又活的路从幔子经过,这幔子就是他的身体。

By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

10:21 又有一位大祭司治理神的家。

And having an high priest over the house of God;

10:22 并我们心中天良的亏欠已经洒去,身体用清水洗净了,就当存着诚心,和充足的信心,来到神面前。

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

10:23 也要坚守我们所承认的指望,不至摇动。因为那应许我们的是信实的。

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

10:24 又要彼此相顾,激发爱心,勉励行善。

And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

10:25 你们不可停止聚会,好像那些停止惯了的人,倒要彼此劝勉。既知道(原文作看见)那日子临近,就更当如此。

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

10:26 因为我们得知真道以后,若故意犯罪,赎罪的祭就再没有了。

For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

10:27 惟有战惧等候审判和那烧灭众人的烈火。

But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

10:28 人干犯摩西的律法,凭两三个见证人,尚且不得怜恤而死。

He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:

10:29 何况人践踏神的儿子,将那使他成圣之约的血当作平常,又亵慢施恩的圣灵,你们想,他要受的刑罚该怎样加重呢。

Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

10:30 因为我们知道谁说,伸冤在我,我必报应。又说,主要审判他的百姓

For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

10:31 落在永生神的手里真是可怕的。

It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

10:32 你们要追念往日,蒙了光照以后,所忍受大争战的各样苦难。

But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;

10:33 一面被毁谤,遭患难,成了戏景,叫众人观看。一面陪伴那些受这样苦难的人。

Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.

10:34 因为你们体恤了那些被捆锁的人,并且你们的家业被人抢去,也甘心忍受,知道自己有更美常存的家业。

For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.

10:35 所以你们不可丢弃勇敢的心,存这样的心必得大赏赐。

Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.

10:36 你们必须忍耐,使你们行完了神的旨意,就可以得着所应许的。

For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

10:37 因为还有一点点时候,那要来的就来,并不迟延。

For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

10:38 只是义人必因信得生。(义人有古卷作我的义人)他若退后,我心里就不喜欢他。

Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

10:39 我们却不是退后入沉沦的那等人,乃是有信心以致灵魂得救的人。

But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.



新约 -- 希伯来书(Hebrews) -- 第 11 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

11:1 信就是所望之事的实底,是未见之事的确据。

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

11:2 古人在这信上得了美好的证据。

For by it the elders obtained a good report.

11:3 我们因着信,就知道诸世界是藉神话造成的。这样,所看见的,并不是从显然之物造出来的。

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

11:4 亚伯因着献祭与神,比该隐所献的更美,因此便得了称义的见证,就是神指他礼物作的见证。他虽然死了,却因这信仍旧说话。

By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

11:5 以诺因着信被接去,不至于见死。人也找不着他,因为神已经把他接去了。只是他被接去以先,已经得了神喜悦他的明证。

By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

11:6 人非有信就不能得神的喜悦。因为到神面前来的人,必须信有神,且信他赏赐那寻求他的人。

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

11:7 挪亚因着信,既蒙神指示他未见的事,动了敬畏的心,豫备了一只方舟,使他全家得救。因此就定了那世代的罪,自己也承受了那从信而来的义。

By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

11:8 亚伯拉罕因着信,蒙召的时候,就遵命出去,往将来要得为业的地方去。出去的时候,还不知往那里去。

By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

11:9 他因着信,就在所应许之地作客,好像在异地居住帐棚,与那同蒙一个应许的以撒,雅各一样。

By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:

11:10 因为他等候那座有根基的城,就是神所经营所建造的。

For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

11:11 因着信,连撒拉自己,虽然过了生育的岁数,还能怀孕。因他以为那应许他的是可信的。

Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

11:12 所以从一个彷佛已死的人就生出子孙,如同天上的星那样众多,海边的沙那样无数。

Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.

11:13 这些人都是存着信心死的,并没有得着所应许的,却从远处望见,且欢喜迎接,又承认自己在世上是客旅,是寄居的。

These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

11:14 说这样话的人,是表明自己要找一个家乡。

For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.

11:15 他们若想念所离开的家乡,还有可以回去的机会。

And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.

11:16 他们却羡慕一个更美的家乡,就是在天上的。所以神被称为他们的神,并不以为耻。因为他已经给他们豫备了一座城。

But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

11:17 亚伯拉罕因着信,被试验的时候,就把以撒献上。这便是那欢喜领受应许的,将自己独生的儿子献上。

By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,

11:18 论到这儿子曾有话说,从以撒生的才要称为你的后裔。

Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:

11:19 他以为神还能叫人从死里复活。他也彷佛从死中得回他的儿子来。

Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.

11:20 以撒因着信,就指着将来的事,给雅各以扫祝福。

By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.

11:21 雅各因着信,临死的时候,给约瑟的两个儿子各自祝福,扶着杖头敬拜神。

By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.

11:22 约瑟因着信,临终的时候,题到以色列族将来要出埃及,并为自己的骸骨留下遗命。

By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.

11:23 摩西生下来,他的父母见他是个俊美的孩子,就因着信把他藏了三个月,并不怕王命。

By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king's commandment.

11:24 摩西因着信,长大了就不肯称为法老女儿之子。

By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;

11:25 他宁可和神的百姓同受苦害,也不愿暂时享受罪中之乐。

Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

11:26 他看为基督受的凌辱,比埃及的财物更宝贵。因他想望所要得的赏赐。

Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

11:27 他因着信就离开埃及,不怕王怒。因为他恒心忍耐,如同看见那不能看见的主)。

By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

11:28 他因着信,就守逾越节,(守或作立)行洒血的礼,免得那灭长子的临近以色列人。

Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

11:29 他们因着信,过红海如行乾地。埃及人试着要过去,就被吞灭了。

By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.

11:30 以色列人因着信,围绕耶利哥城七日,城墙就倒塌了。

By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.

11:31 妓女喇合因着信,曾和和平平的接待探子,就不与那些不顺从的人一同灭亡。

By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.

11:32 我又何必再说呢。若一一细说,基甸,巴拉,叁孙,耶弗他,大卫,撒母耳,和众先知的事,时候就不够了。

And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:

11:33 他们因着信,制伏了敌国,行了公义,得了应许,堵了狮子的口。

Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,

11:34 灭了烈火的猛势,脱了刀剑的锋刃,软弱变为刚强,争战显出勇敢,打退外邦的全军。

Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

11:35 有妇人得自己的死人复活,又有人忍受严刑,不肯苟且得释放,(释放原文作赎)为要得着更美的复活。

Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:

11:36 又有人忍受戏弄,鞭打,捆锁,监禁,各等的磨炼。

And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:

11:37 被石头打死,被锯锯死,受试探,被刀杀。披着绵羊山羊的皮各处奔跑,受穷乏,患难,苦害。

They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;

11:38 在旷野,山岭,山洞,地穴,飘流无定。本是世界不配有的人。

(Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

11:39 这些人都是因信得了美好的证据,却仍未得着所应许的。

And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:

11:40 因为神给我们豫备了更美的事,叫他们若不与我们同得,就不能完全。

God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.



新约 -- 希伯来书(Hebrews) -- 第 12 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

12:1 我们既有这许多的见证人,如同云彩围着我们,就当放下各样的重担,脱去容易缠累我们的罪,存心忍耐,奔那摆在我们前头的路程,

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

12:2 仰望为我们信心创始成终的耶稣。(或作仰望那将真道创始成终的耶稣)他因那摆在前头的喜乐,就轻看羞辱,忍受了十字架的苦难,便坐在神宝座的右边。

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

12:3 那忍受罪人这样顶撞的,你们要思想,免得疲倦灰心。

For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

12:4 你们与罪恶相争,还没有抵挡到留血的地步。

Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.

12:5 你们又忘了那劝你们如同劝儿子的话,说,我儿,你不可轻看主的管教,被他责备的时候,也不可灰心。

And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:

12:6 因为主所爱的他必管教,又鞭打凡所收纳的儿子。

For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

12:7 你们所忍受的,是神管教你们,待你们如同待儿子。焉有儿子不被父亲管教的呢。

If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

12:8 管教原是众子所共受的,你们若不受管教,就是私子,不是儿子了。

But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

12:9 再者,我们曾有生身的父管教我们,我们尚且敬重他,何况万灵的父,我们岂不更当顺服他得生吗。

Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

12:10 生身的父都是暂随己意管教我们。惟有万灵的父管教我们,是要我们得益处,使我们在他的圣洁上有分。

For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.

12:11 凡管教的事,当时不觉得快乐,凡觉得愁苦。后来却为那经练过的人,结出平安的果子,就是义。

Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

12:12 所以你们要把下垂的手,发酸的腿,梃起来。

Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;

12:13 也要为自己的脚把道路修直了,使瘸子不至歪脚,反得痊愈。(歪脚或作差路)

And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.

12:14 你们要追求与众人和睦,并要追求圣洁。非圣洁没有人能见主。

Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

12:15 又要谨慎,恐怕有人失了神的恩。恐怕有毒根生出来扰乱你们,因此叫众人沾染污秽。

Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;

12:16 恐怕有淫乱的,有贪恋世俗如以扫的。他因一点食物把自己长子的名分卖了。

Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.

12:17 后来想要承受父所祝的福,竟被弃绝,虽然号哭切求,却得不着门路,使他父亲的心意回转,这是你们知道的。

For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.

12:18 你们原不是来到那能摸的山,此山有火焰,密云,黑暗,暴风,

For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,

12:19 角声与说话的声音。那些听见这声音的。都求不要再向他们说话。

And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:

12:20 因为他们当不起所命他们的话说,靠近这山的,既便是走兽,也要用石头打死。

(For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart:

12:21 所见的极其可怕,甚至摩西说,我甚是恐惧战竞。

And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)

12:22 你们乃是来到锡安山,永生神的城邑,就是天上的耶路撒冷。那里有千万的天使,

But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

12:23 有名录在天上诸长子之会所共聚的总会,有审判众人的神,和被成全之义人的灵魂。

To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

12:24 并新约的中保耶稣,以及所洒的血。这血所说的比亚伯的血所说的更美。

And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

12:25 你们总要谨慎,不可弃绝那向你们说话的。因为那些弃绝在地上警戒他们的,尚且不能逃罪,何况我们违背那从天上警戒我们的呢。

See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:

12:26 当时他的声音震动了地。但如今他应许说,再一次我不单要震动地,还要震动天。

Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.

12:27 这再一次的话,是指明被震动的,就是受造之物,都要挪去,使那不被震动的常存。

And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.

12:28 所以我们既得了不能震动的国,就当感恩,照神所喜悦的,用虔诚敬畏的心事奉神。

Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

12:29 因为我们的神乃是烈火。

For our God is a consuming fire.



新约 -- 希伯来书(Hebrews) -- 第 13 章 ( 本篇共有 13 章 )[]

13:1 你们务要存弟兄相爱的心。

Let brotherly love continue.

13:2 不可忘记用爱心接待客旅。因为曾有接待客旅的,不知不觉就接待了天使。

Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

13:3 你们要记念被捆绑的人,好像与他们同受捆绑,也要记念遭苦害的人,想到自己也在肉身之内。

Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.

13:4 婚姻,人人都当尊重,床也不可污秽。因为苟合行淫的人神必要审判。

Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

13:5 你们存心不可贪爱钱财。要以自己所有的为足。因为主曾说,我总不撇下你,也不丢去你。

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

13:6 所以我们可以放胆说,主是帮助我的,我必不惧怕。人能把我怎吗样呢。

So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

13:7 从前引导你们,传神之道给你们的人,你们要想念他们,效法他们的信心,留心看他们为人的结局。

Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.

13:8 耶稣基督,昨日今日一直到永远是一样的。

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

13:9 你们不要被那诸般怪异的教训勾引了去。因为人心靠恩得坚固才是好的。并不是靠饮食。那在饮食上专心的,从来没有得着益处。

Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.

13:10 我们有一祭坛,上面的祭物是那些在帐幕中供职的人不可同吃的。

We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.

13:11 原来牲畜的血,被大祭司带入圣所作赎罪祭,牲畜的身子,被烧在营外。

For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.

13:12 所以耶稣,要用自己的血叫百姓成圣,也就在城门外受苦。

Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

13:13 这样,我们也当出到营外就了他去,忍受他所受的凌辱。

Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.

13:14 我们在这里本没有常存的城,乃是寻求那将来的城。

For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.

13:15 我们应当靠着耶稣,常常以颂赞为祭献给神,这就是那承认主名之人嘴唇的果子。

By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

13:16 只是不可忘记行善,和捐输的事。因为这样的祭,是神所喜悦的。

But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

13:17 你们要依从那些引导你们的,且要顺服。因他们为你们的灵魂时刻儆醒,好像那将来交账的人。你们要使他们交的时候有快乐,不至忧愁。若忧愁就与你们无益了。

Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

13:18 请你们为我们祷告。因我们自觉良心无亏,愿意凡事按正道而行。

Pray for us: for we trust we have a good conscience, in all things willing to live honestly.

13:19 我更求你们为我祷告,使我快些回到你们那里去。

But I beseech you the rather to do this, that I may be restored to you the sooner.

13:20 但愿赐平安的神,就是那凭永约之血使群羊的大牧人我主耶稣,从死里复活的神,

Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,

13:21 在各样善事上,成全你们,叫你们遵行他的旨意,又藉着耶稣基督在你们心里行他所喜悦的事。愿荣耀归给他,直到永永远远。阿们。

Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

13:22 弟兄们,我略略写给你们,望你们听我劝勉的话。

And I beseech you, brethren, suffer the word of exhortation: for I have written a letter unto you in few words.

13:23 你们该知道我们的弟兄提摩太已经释放了。他若快来,我必同他夸见你们。

Know ye that our brother Timothy is set at liberty; with whom, if he come shortly, I will see you.

13:24 请你们问引导你们的诸位和众圣徒安。从意大利来的人也问你们安。

Salute all them that have the rule over you, and all the saints. They of Italy salute you.

13:25 愿恩惠常与你们众人同在。阿们。

Grace be with you all. Amen.



新约 -- 雅各书(James) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

1:1 作神和主耶稣基督仆人的雅各,请散住十二个支派之人的安。

James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.

1:2 我的弟兄们,你们落在百般的试炼中,都要以为大喜乐。

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

1:3 因为知道你们的信心经过试验就生忍耐。

Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

1:4 但忍耐也当成功,使你们成全完备,毫无缺欠。

But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

1:5 你们中间若有缺少智慧的,应当求那厚赐与众人,也不斥责人的神,主就必赐给他。

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

1:6 只要凭着信心求,一点不疑惑。因为那疑惑的人,就像海中的波浪,被风吹动翻腾。

But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

1:7 这样的人,不要想从主那里得什么。

For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

1:8 心怀二意的人,在他一切所行的路上,都没有定见。

A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

1:9 卑微的弟兄升高,就该喜乐。

Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:

1:10 富足的降卑,也该如此。因为他必要过去,如同草上的花一样。

But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.

1:11 太阳出来,热风刮起,草就枯乾,花也凋谢,美容就消没了。那富足的人,在他所行的事上,也要这样衰残。

For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.

1:12 忍受试探的人是有福的。因为他经过试验以后,必得生命的冠冕,这是主应许给那些爱他之人的。

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

1:13 人被试探,不可说,我是被神试探。因为神不能被恶试探,他也不试探人。

Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

1:14 但各人被试探,乃是被自己的私欲牵引诱惑的。

But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

1:15 私欲既怀了胎,就生出罪来。罪既长成,就生出死来。

Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

1:16 我亲爱的弟兄们,不要看错了。

Do not err, my beloved brethren.

1:17 各样美善的恩赐,和各样全备的赏赐,都是从上头来的。从众光之父那里降下来的。在他并没有改变,也没有转动的影儿。

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

1:18 他按自己的旨意,用真道生了我们,叫我们在他所造的万物中,好像初熟的果子。

Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

1:19 我亲爱的弟兄们,这是你们所知道的。但你们各人要快快的听,慢慢的说,慢慢的动怒。

Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

1:20 因为人的怒气,并不成就神的义。

For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

1:21 所以你们要脱去一切的污秽,和盈馀的邪恶,存温柔的心领受那所栽种的道,就是能救你们灵魂的道。

Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

1:22 只是你们要行道,不要单单听道,自己欺哄自己。

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

1:23 因为听道而不行道的,就像人对着镜子看自己本来的面目。

For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

1:24 看见,走后,随即忘了他的相貌如何。

For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

1:25 惟有那详细察看那全备使人自由之律法的,并且时常如此,这人既不是听了就忘,乃是实在行出来,就在他所行的事上必然得福。

But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

1:26 若有人自以为虔诚,却不勒住他的舌头,反欺哄自己的心,这人的虔诚是虚的。

If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.

1:27 在神我们的父面前,那清洁没有玷污的虔诚,就是看雇在患难中的孤儿寡妇,并且保守自己不沾染世俗。

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.



新约 -- 雅各书(James) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

2:1 我的弟兄们,你们信奉我们荣耀的主耶稣基督,便不可按着外貌待人。

My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.

2:2 若有一个人带着金戒指,穿着华美衣服,进你们的会堂去。又有一个穷人,穿着肮脏衣服也进去。

For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;

2:3 你们就重看那穿华美衣服的人,说,请坐在这好位上。又对那穷人说,你站在那里,或坐在我脚凳下边。

And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:

2:4 这岂不是你们用偏心待人,用恶意断定人吗。

Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?

2:5 我亲爱的弟兄们请听,神岂不是拣选了世上的贫穷人,叫他们在信上富足,并承受他所应许给那些爱他之人的国吗。

Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?

2:6 你们反倒羞辱贫穷人。那富足人岂不是欺压你们,拉你们到公堂去吗。

But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?

2:7 他们不是亵渎你们所敬奉的尊名吗。(所敬奉或作被称)

Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?

2:8 经上记着说,要爱人如己。你们若全守这至尊的律法才是好的。

If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:

2:9 但你们若按外貌待人,便是犯罪,被律法定为犯法的。

But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.

2:10 因为凡遵守全律法的,只在一条上跌倒,他就是犯了众条。

For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

2:11 原来那说不可奸淫的,也说不可杀人。你就是不奸淫,却杀人,仍是成了犯律法的。

For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.

2:12 你们既然要按使人自由的律法受审判,就该照这律法说话行事。

So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.

2:13 因为那不怜悯人的,也要受无怜悯的审判。怜悯原是向审判夸胜。

For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.

2:14 我的弟兄们,若有人说,自己有信心,却没有行为,有什么益处呢。这信心能救他吗。

What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?

2:15 若是弟兄,或是姐妹,赤身露体,又缺了日用的饮食,

If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,

2:16 你们中间有人对他们说,平平安安的去吧,愿你们穿得暖吃得饱。却不给他们身体所需用的,这有什么益处呢。

And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?

2:17 这样信心若没有行为就是死的。

Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

2:18 必有人说,你有信心,我有行为。你将你没有行为的信心指给我看,我便藉着我的行为,将我的信心指给你看。

Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

2:19 你信神只有一位,你信的不错。鬼魔也信,却是战兢。

Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

2:20 虚浮的人哪,你愿意知道没有行为的信心是死的吗。

But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

2:21 我们的祖宗亚伯拉罕,把他儿子以撒献在坛上,岂不是因行为称义吗。

Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?

2:22 可见信心是与他的行为并行,而且信心因着行为才得成全。

Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?

2:23 这就应验经上所说,亚伯拉罕信神,这就算为他的义。他又得称为神的朋友。

And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.

2:24 这样看来,人称义是因着行为,不是单因着信。

Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

2:25 妓女喇合接待使者,又放他们从别的路出去,不也是一样因行为称义吗。

Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?

2:26 身体没有灵魂是死的,信心没有行为也是死的。

For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.



新约 -- 雅各书(James) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

3:1 我的弟兄们,不要多人作师父,因为晓得我们要受更的判断。

My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

3:2 原来我们在许多事上都有过失。若有人在话语上没有过失,他就是完全人,也能勒住自己的全身。

For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.

3:3 我们若把嚼环放在马嘴里,叫他顺服,就能调动他的全身。

Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.

3:4 看哪,船只虽然甚大,又被大风催逼,只用小小的舵,就随着掌舵的意思转动。

Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.

3:5 这样,舌头在百体里也是最小的,却能说大话。看哪,最小的火能点着最大的树林。

Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

3:6 舌头就是火,在我们百体中,舌头是个罪恶的世界,能污秽全身,也能把生命的轮子点起来,并且是从地狱里点着的。

And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

3:7 各类的走兽,飞禽,昆虫,水族,本来都可以制伏,也以经被人制伏了。

For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:

3:8 惟独舌头没有人能制伏,是不止息的恶物,满了害死人的毒气。

But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

3:9 我们用舌头颂赞那为主为父的,又用舌头咒诅那照着神形像被造的人。

Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.

3:10 颂赞和咒诅从一个口里出来,我的弟兄们,这是不应当的。

Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

3:11 泉源从一个眼里能发出甜苦两样的水吗。

Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?

3:12 我的弟兄们,无花果树能生橄榄吗,葡萄树能结无花果吗。咸水里也不能发出甜水来。

Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.

3:13 你们中间有智慧有见识的呢。他就当在智慧的温柔上,显出他的善行来。

Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

3:14 你们心里若怀着苦毒的嫉妒和分争,就不可自夸,也不可说谎话抵挡真道。

But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.

3:15 这样的智慧,不是从上头来的,乃是属地的,属情欲的,属鬼魔的。

This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

3:16 在何处有嫉妒分争,就在何处有扰乱,和各样的坏事。

For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

3:17 惟独从上头来的智慧,先是清洁,后是和平,温良柔顺,满有怜悯,多结善果,没有偏见,没有假冒。

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

3:18 并且使人和平的,是用和平所栽种的义果。

And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.



新约 -- 雅各书(James) -- 第 4 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

4:1 你们中间的争战斗殴,是从那里来的呢。不是从你们百体中战斗之私欲来的吗。

From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?

4:2 你们贪恋,还是得不着。你们杀害嫉妒,又斗殴争战,也不能得。你们得不着,是因为你们不求。

Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.

4:3 你们求也得不着,是因为你们妄求,要浪费在你们的宴乐中。

Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

4:4 你们这些淫乱的人哪,(淫乱的人原文作淫妇)岂不知与世俗为友,就是与神为敌吗。所以凡想要与世俗为友的,就是与神为敌了。

Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

4:5 你们想经上所说的是徒然的吗。神所赐住在我们里面的灵,是恋爱至于嫉妒吗。

Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?

4:6 但他赐更多的恩典。所以经上说,神阻挡骄傲的人,赐恩给谦卑的人。

But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

4:7 故此你们要顺服神,务要抵挡魔鬼,魔鬼就必离开你们逃跑了。

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

4:8 你们亲近神,神就必亲近你们。有罪的人哪,要洁净你们的手。心怀二意的人哪,要清洁你们的心。

Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

4:9 你们要愁苦,悲哀,哭泣。将喜笑变作悲哀,欢乐变作愁闷。

Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.

4:10 务要在主面前自卑,主就比叫你们升高。

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

4:11 弟兄们,你们不可彼此批评。人若批评弟兄,论断弟兄,就是批评律法,论断律法。你若论断律法,就不是遵行律法,乃是判断人的。

Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.

4:12 设立律法和判断人的,只有一位,就是那能救人也能灭人的。你是谁,竟敢论断别人呢。

There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

4:13 ??,你们有话说,今天明天我们要往某城里去,在那里住一年,作买卖得利。

Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:

4:14 其实明天如何,你们还不知道。你们的生命是什么呢。你们原来是一片云雾,出现少时就不见了。

Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

4:15 你们只当说,主若愿意,我们就可以活着,也可以作这事,或作那事。

For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.

4:16 现今你们竟以张狂跨口。凡这样跨口都是恶的。

But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.

4:17 人若知道行善,却不去行,这就是他的罪了。

Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.



新约 -- 雅各书(James) -- 第 5 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

5:1 ??,你们这些富足人哪,应当哭泣,号??,因为将有苦难临到你们身上。

Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.

5:2 你们的财物坏了,衣服也被虫子咬了。

Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.

5:3 你们的金银都长了锈。那锈要证明你们的不是,又要吃你们的肉,如同火烧。你们在这末世,只知积攒钱财。

Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.

5:4 工人给你们收割庄稼,你们亏欠他们的工钱。这工钱有声音呼叫。并且那收割之人的冤声,已经入了万军之主的耳了。

Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.

5:5 你们在世上享美福,好宴乐,当宰杀的日子竟娇养你们的心。

Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.

5:6 你们定了义人的罪,把他杀害,他也不抵挡你们。

Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.

5:7 弟兄们哪,你们要忍耐直到主来。看哪,农夫忍耐等候地里宝贵的出产,直到得了秋雨春雨。

Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.

5:8 你们也当忍耐,坚固你们的心。因为主来的日子近了。

Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

5:9 弟兄们,你们不要彼此埋怨,免得受审判。看哪,审判的主站在门前了。

Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.

5:10 弟兄们,你们要把那先前奉主名说话的众先知,当作能受苦能忍耐的榜样。

Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.

5:11 那先前忍耐的人,我们称他们是有福的,你们听见过约伯的忍耐,也知道主给他的结局,明显主是满有怜悯,大有慈悲。

Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

5:12 我的弟兄们,最要紧的是不可起誓。不可指着天起誓,也不可指着地起誓,无论何誓都不可起。你们说话,是就说是,不是就说不是,免得你们落在审判之下。

But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.

5:13 你们中间有受苦的呢,他就该祷告。有喜乐的呢,他就该歌颂。

Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.

5:14 你们中间有病了的呢,他就该请教会的长老来。他们可以奉主的名用油抹他,为他祷告。

Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

5:15 出于信心的祈祷,要救那病人,主必叫他起来。他若犯了罪,也必蒙赦免。

And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

5:16 所以你们要彼此认罪,互相代求,使你们可以得医治。义人祈祷所发的力量,是大有功效的。

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

5:17 以利亚与我们是一样性情的人,他恳切祷告,求不要下雨,雨就三年零六个月不下在地上。

Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

5:18 他又祷告,天就降下雨来,地也生出土产。

And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

5:19 我的弟兄们,你们中间若有失迷真道的,有人使他回转。

Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;

5:20 这人该知道叫一个罪人从迷路上转回,便是救一个灵魂不死,并且遮盖许多的罪。

Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

1:1 耶稣基督的使徒彼得,写信给那分散在本都,加拉太,加帕多家,亚细亚,庇推尼寄居的。

Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,

1:2 就是照父神的先见被拣选,藉着圣灵得成圣洁,以致顺服耶稣基督,又蒙他血所洒的人。愿恩惠平安,多多的加给你们。

Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

1:3 愿颂赞归与我们的主耶稣基督的父神,他曾照自己的大怜悯,藉耶稣基督从死里复活重生了我们,教我们有活泼的盼望,

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

1:4 可以得着不能朽坏,不能玷污,不能衰残,为你们存留在天上的基业。

To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,

1:5 你们这因信蒙神能力保守的人,必能得着所豫备,到末世要显现的救恩。

Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

1:6 因此,你们是大有喜乐,但如今,在百般的试炼中暂时忧愁。

Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:

1:7 叫你们的信心既被试验,就比那被火试验,仍然能坏的金子,更显宝贵。可以在耶稣基督显现的时候,得着称赞,荣耀,尊贵。

That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

1:8 你们虽然没有见过他,却是爱他。如今虽不得看见,却因信他就有说不出来,满有荣光的大喜乐。

Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

1:9 并且得着你们信心的果效,就是灵魂的救恩。

Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

1:10 论到这救恩,那豫先说你们要得恩典的众先知,早已详细的寻求考察。

Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:

1:11 就是考察在他们心里基督的灵,豫先证明基督受苦难,后来得荣耀,是指着什么时候,并怎样的时候。

Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.

1:12 他们得了启示,知道他们所传讲的一切事(传讲原文作服事),不是为自己,乃是为你们。那靠着从天上差来的圣灵,传福音给你们的人,现在将这些事报给你们。天使也愿意详细察看这些事。

Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

1:13 所以要约束你们的心(原文作束上你们心中的腰),谨慎自守,专心盼望耶稣基督显现的时候所带来给你们的恩。

Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

1:14 你们既作顺命的儿女,就不要效法从前蒙昧无知的时候,那放纵私欲的样子。

As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:

1:15 那召你们的既是圣洁,你们在一切所行的事上也要圣洁。

But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

1:16 因为经上记着说,你们要圣洁,因为我是圣洁的。

Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

1:17 你们既称那不偏待人,按各人行为审判人的主为父,就当存敬畏的心,度你们在世寄居的日子。

And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:

1:18 知道你们得救赎,脱去你们祖宗所传流虚妄的行为,不是凭着能坏的金银等物。

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

1:19 乃是凭着基督的宝血,如同无瑕疵无玷污的羔羊之血。

But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

1:20 基督在创世以前,是豫先被神知道的,却在这末世,才为你们显现。

Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

1:21 你们也因信着他,信那叫他从死里复活,又给他荣耀的神,叫你们的信心,和盼望,都在于神。

Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

1:22 你们既因顺从真理,洁净了自己的心,以致爱弟兄没有虚假,就当从心里彼此切实相爱。从心里有古卷作从清洁的心

Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:

1:23 你们蒙了重生,不是由于能坏的种子,乃是由于不能坏的种子,是藉着神活泼常存的道。

Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

1:24 因为凡有血气的,尽都如草,他的美荣,都像草上的花。草必枯乾,花必凋谢。

For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:

1:25 惟有主的道是永存的。所传给你们的福音就是这道。

But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.



新约 -- 彼得前书(1Peter) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

2:1 所以你们既除去一切的恶毒(或作阴毒),诡诈,并假善,嫉妒,和一切毁谤的话,

Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,

2:2 就要爱慕那纯净的灵奶,像才生的婴孩爱慕奶一样,叫你们因此渐长,以致得救。

As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

2:3 你们若尝过主恩的滋味,就必如此

If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

2:4 主乃活石。固然是被人所弃的,却是被神所拣选所宝贵的。

To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,

2:5 你们来到主面前,也就像活石,被建造成为灵宫,作圣洁的祭司,藉着耶稣基督奉献神所悦纳的灵祭。

Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

2:6 因为经上说,看哪,我把所拣选所宝贵的房角石,安放在锡安。信靠他的人,必不至于羞愧。

Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.

2:7 所以他在你们信的人就为宝贵,在那不信的人有话说,匠人所弃的石头,已作了房角的头块石头。

Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,

2:8 又说,作了绊脚的石头,跌人的磐石。他们既不顺从,就在道理上绊跌。(或作他们绊跌都因不顺从道理)他们这样绊跌也是豫定的。

And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

2:9 惟有你们是被拣选的族类,是有君尊的祭司,是圣洁的国度,是属神的子民,要叫你们宣扬那召你们出黑暗入奇妙光明者的美德。

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

2:10 你们从前算不得子民,现在却作了神的子民。从前未曾蒙怜恤,现在却蒙了怜恤。

Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

2:11 亲爱的弟兄阿你们是客旅,是寄居的。我劝你们要禁戒肉体的私欲。这私欲是与灵魂争战的。

Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

2:12 你们在外邦人中,应当品行端正,叫那些毁谤你们是作恶的,因看见你们的好行为,便在鉴察的日子(鉴察或作眷顾),归荣耀给神。

Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.

2:13 你们为主的缘故,要顺服人的一切制度,或是在上的君王,

Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;

2:14 或是君王所派罚恶赏善的臣宰。

Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.

2:15 因为神的旨意原是要你们行善,可以堵住那糊涂无知人的口。

For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:

2:16 你们虽是自由的,却不可藉着自由遮盖恶毒(或作阴毒),总要作神的仆人。

As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.

2:17 务要尊敬众人。亲爱教中的弟兄。敬畏神。尊敬君王。

Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.

2:18 你们作仆人的,凡事要存敬畏的心顺服主人。不但顺服那善良温和的,就是那乖僻的也要顺服。

Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.

2:19 倘若人为叫良心对得住神,就忍受冤屈的苦楚,这是可喜爱的。

For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.

2:20 你们若因犯罪受责打,能忍耐,有什么可夸的呢。但你们若因行善受苦,若能忍耐,这在神看是可喜爱的。

For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.

2:21 你们蒙恩原是为此。因基督也为你们受过苦,给你们留下榜样,叫你们跟随他的脚踪行。

For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

2:22 他并没有犯罪,口里也没有诡诈。

Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

2:23 他被骂不还口。受害不说威吓的话。只将自己交托那按公义审判人的主。

Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

2:24 他被挂在木头上亲身担当了我们的罪,使我们既然在罪上死,就得以在义上活。因他受的鞭伤,你们便得医治。

Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

2:25 你们从前好像迷路的羊。如今却归到你们灵魂的牧人监督了。

For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.



新约 -- 彼得前书(1Peter) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

3:1 你们作妻子的,要顺服自己的丈夫。这样,若有不信从道理的丈夫,他们虽然不听道,也可以因妻子的品行被感化过来。

Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;

3:2 这是因为看见你们有贞洁的品行,和敬畏的心。

While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.

3:3 你们不要以外面的辫头发,戴金饰,穿美衣,为妆饰,

Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;

3:4 只要以里面存着长久温柔安静的心为妆饰。这在神面前是极宝贵的。

But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.

3:5 因为古时仰赖神的圣洁妇人,正是以此为妆饰,顺服自己的丈夫。

For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:

3:6 就如撒拉听从亚伯拉罕,称他为主。你们若行善,不因恐吓而害怕,便是撒拉的女儿了。

Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.

3:7 你们作丈夫的,也要按情理和妻子同住(情理原文作知识)。因他比你软弱(比你软弱原文是软弱的器皿),与你一同承受生命之恩的,所以要敬重他。这样便叫你们的祷告没有阻碍。

Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

3:8 总而言之,你们都要同心,彼此体恤,相爱如弟兄,存慈怜谦卑的心。

Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:

3:9 不要以恶报恶,以辱骂还辱骂,倒要祝福。因你们是为此蒙召,好叫你们承受福气。

Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.

3:10 因为经上说,人若爱生命,愿享美福,须要禁止舌头不出恶言,嘴唇不说诡诈的话。

For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

3:11 也要离恶行善。寻求和睦,一心追赶。

Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.

3:12 因为主的眼看顾义人,主的耳听他们的祈祷。惟有行恶的人,主向他们变脸。

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

3:13 你们若是热心行善,有谁害你们呢。

And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?

3:14 你们就是为义受苦,也是有福的。不要怕人的威吓,也不要惊慌(的威吓或作所怕的)。

But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;

3:15 只要心里尊主基督为圣。有人问你们心中盼望的缘由,就要常作准备,以温柔敬畏的心回答各人。

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

3:16 存着无亏的良心,叫你们在何事上被毁谤,就在何事上,可以叫那诬赖你们在基督里有好品行的人,自觉羞愧。

Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

3:17 神的旨意若叫你们因行善受苦,总强如因行恶受苦。

For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.

3:18 因基督也曾一次为罪受苦(受苦有古卷作受死),就是义的代替不义的,为要引我们到神面前。按着肉体说他被治死。按着灵性说他复活了。

For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

3:19 他藉这灵,曾去传道给那些在监狱里的灵听。

By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;

3:20 就是那从前在挪亚豫备方舟,神容忍等待的时候,不信从的人。当时进入方舟,藉着水得救的不多,只有八个人。

Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

3:21 这水所表明的洗礼,现在藉着耶稣基督复活。也拯救你们。这洗礼本不在乎除掉肉体的污秽,只求在神面前有无亏的良心。

The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

3:22 耶稣已经进入天堂,在神的右边。众天使和有权炳的,并有能力的,都服从了他。

Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.



新约 -- 彼得前书(1Peter) -- 第 4 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

4:1 基督既在肉身受苦,你们也当将这样的心志作为兵器。因为在肉身受过苦的,就已经与罪断绝了。

Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;

4:2 你们存这样的心,从今以后,就可以不从人的情欲,只从神的旨意,在世度馀下的光阴。

That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

4:3 因为往日随从外邦人的心意,行邪淫,恶欲,醉酒,荒宴,群饮,并可恶拜偶像的事,时候已经够了。

For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:

4:4 他们在这些事上,见你们不与他们同奔那放荡无度的路,就以为怪毁谤你们。

Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:

4:5 他们必在那将要审判活人死人的主面前交账。

Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.

4:6 为此,就是死人也曾有福音传给他们,要叫他们的肉体按着人受审判,他们的灵性却靠神活着。

For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

4:7 万物的结局近了。所以你们要谨慎自守,儆醒祷告。

But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

4:8 最要紧的是彼此切实相爱。因为爱能遮掩许多的罪。

And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

4:9 你们要互相款待,不发怨言。

Use hospitality one to another without grudging.

4:10 各人要照所得的恩赐彼此服事,作神百般恩赐的好管家。

As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

4:11 若有讲道的,要按着神的圣言讲。若有服事人的,要按着神所赐的力量服事。叫神在凡事上因耶稣基督得荣耀。原来荣耀权能都是他的,直到永永远远。阿们。

If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

4:12 亲爱的弟兄阿,有火炼的试验临到你们,不要以为奇怪,(似乎是遭遇非常的事)

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

4:13 倒要欢喜。因为你们是与基督一同受苦,使你们在他荣耀显现的时候,也可以欢喜快乐。

But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

4:14 你们若为基督的名受辱骂,便是有福的。因为神荣耀的灵,常住在你们身上。

If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

4:15 你们中间却不可有人,因为杀人,偷窃,作恶,好管闲事而受苦。

But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.

4:16 若为作基督徒受苦,却不要羞耻。倒要因这名归荣耀给神。

Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

4:17 因为时候到了,审判要从神的家起首。若是先从我们起首,那不信从神福音的人,将有何等的结局呢。

For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

4:18 若是义人仅仅得救,那不虔敬和犯罪的人,将有何地可站呢。

And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

4:19 所以那照神旨意受苦的人,要一心为善,将自己灵魂交与那信实的造化之主。

Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.



新约 -- 彼得前书(1Peter) -- 第 5 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

5:1 我这作长老,作基督受苦的见证,同享后来所要显现之荣耀的,劝你们中间与我同作长老的人。

The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:

5:2 务要牧养在你们中间神的群羊,按着神旨意照管他们。不是出于勉强,乃是出于甘心。也不是因为贪财,乃是出于乐意。

Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;

5:3 也不是辖制所托付你们的,乃是作群羊的榜样。

Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.

5:4 到了牧长显现的时候,你们必得那永不衰残的荣耀冠冕。

And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

5:5 你们年幼的,也要顺服年长的。就是你们众人,也都要以谦卑束腰,彼此顺服。因为神阻挡骄傲的人,赐恩给谦卑的人。

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

5:6 所以你们要自卑,服在神大能的手下,到了时候他必叫你们升高。

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

5:7 你们要将一切的忧虑卸给神,因为他顾念你们。

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

5:8 务要谨守,儆醒。因为你们的仇敌魔鬼,如同吼叫的狮子,遍地游行,寻梢可吞吃的人。

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

5:9 你们要用坚固的信心抵挡他,因为知道你们在世上的众弟兄,也是经历这样的苦难。

Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

5:10 那赐诸般恩典的神,曾在基督里召你们,得亨他永远的荣耀,等你们暂受苦难之后,必要亲自成全你们,坚固你们,赐力量给你们。

But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

5:11 愿权能归给他,直到永永远远。阿们。

To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

5:12 我略略的写了这信,托我所看为忠心的兄弟西拉转交你们,劝勉你们,又证明这恩是神的真恩。你们务要在这恩上站立得住。

By Silvanus, a faithful brother unto you, as I suppose, I have written briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God wherein ye stand.

5:13 在巴比伦与你们同蒙拣选的教会问你们安。我儿子马可也问你们安。

The church that is at Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus my son.

5:14 你们要用爱心彼此亲嘴问安。愿平安归与你们凡在基督里的人。

Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.



新约 -- 彼得后书(2Peter) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 3 章 )[]

1:1 作耶稣基督仆人和使徒的西门彼得,写信给那因我们的神,和(有古卷无和字)救主耶稣基督之义,与我们同得一样宝贵信心的人。

Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:

1:2 愿恩惠平安,因你们认识神和我们主耶稣,多多的加给你们。

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

1:3 神的神能已经将一切关乎生命和虔敬的事赐给我们,皆因我们认识那用自己荣耀和美德召我们的主。

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

1:4 因此他已将又宝贵又极大的应许赐给我们,叫我们既脱离世上从情欲来的败坏,就得与神的性情有分。

Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

1:5 正因这缘故,你们要分外的殷勤。有了信心,又要加上德行。有了德行,又要加上知识。

And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

1:6 有了知识,又要加上节制。有了节制,又要加上忍耐。有了忍耐,又要加上虔敬。

And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

1:7 有了虔敬,又要加上爱弟兄的心。有了爱弟兄的心,又要加上爱众人的心

And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

1:8 你们若充充足足的有这几样,就必使你们在认识我们的主耶稣基督上,不至于闲懒不结果子了。

For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1:9 人若没有这几样,就是眼瞎,只看见近处的,忘了他旧日的罪已经得了洁净。

But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

1:10 所以弟兄们,应当更加殷勤,使你们所蒙的恩召和拣选坚定不移。你们若行这几样,就永不失脚。

Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

1:11 这样,必叫你们丰丰富富的,得以进入我们主救主耶稣基督永远的国。

For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

1:12 你们虽然晓得这些事,并且在你们已有的真道上坚固,我却要将这些事常常题醒你们。

Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.

1:13 我以为应当趁我还在这帐棚的时候题醒你们,激发你们。

Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;

1:14 因为知道我脱离这帐棚的时候快到了,正如我们主耶稣基督所指示我的。

Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.

1:15 并且我尽心竭力,使你们在我去世以后,时常记念这些事。

Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.

1:16 我们从前,将我们主耶稣基督的大能,和他降临的事,告诉你们,并不是随从乖巧捏造的虚言,乃是亲眼见过他的威荣。

For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

1:17 他从父神得尊贵荣耀的时候,从极大荣光之中,有声音出来向他说,这是我的爱子,我所喜悦的。

For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

1:18 我们同他在圣山的时候,亲自听见这声音从天上出来。

And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.

1:19 我们并有先知更确的预言,如同灯照在暗处。你们在这预言上留意,直等到天发亮晨星在你们心里出现的时候,才是好的。

We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

1:20 第一要紧的,该知道经上所有的预言,没有可随私意解说的。

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

1:21 因为预言从来没有出于人意的,乃是人被圣灵感动说出神的话来。

For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.



新约 -- 彼得后书(2Peter) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 3 章 )[]

2:1 从前在百姓中有假先知起来,将来在你们中间,也必有假师傅,私自引进害人的异端,连买他们的主他们也不承认,自取速速的灭亡。

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

2:2 将有许多人随从他们邪淫的行为,便叫真道,因他们的缘故被毁谤。

And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

2:3 他们因有贪心,要用捏造的言语,在你们身上取利。他们的刑罚,自古以来并不迟延,他们的灭亡也必速速来到(原文作也不打盹)。

And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

2:4 就是天使犯了罪,神也没有宽容,曾把他们丢在地狱,交在黑暗坑中,等候审判。

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

2:5 神也没有宽容上古的世代,曾叫洪水临到那不敬虔的世代,却保护了传义道的挪亚一家八口。

And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

2:6 又判定所多玛,蛾摩拉,将二城倾覆,焚烧成灰,作为后世不敬虔人的监戒。

And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;

2:7 只搭救了那常为恶人淫行忧伤的义人罗得。

And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:

2:8 因为那义人住在他们中间,看见听见他们不法的事,他的义心就天天伤痛。

(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)

2:9 主知道搭救敬虔的人脱离试探,把不义的人留在刑罚之下,等候审判的日子。

The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

2:10 那些随肉身,纵污秽的情欲,轻慢主治之人的,更是如此。他们胆大任性,毁谤在尊位的也不知惧怕。

But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.

2:11 就是天使,虽然力量权能更大,还不用毁谤的话在主面前告他们。

Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.

2:12 但这些人好像没有灵性,生来就是畜类,以备捉拿宰杀的。他们毁谤所不晓得的事,正在败坏人的时候,自己必遭遇败坏。

But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;

2:13 行的不义,就得了不义的工价。这些人喜爱白昼宴乐,他们已被玷污,又有瑕疵,正与你们一同坐席,就以自己的诡诈为快乐。

And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;

2:14 他们满眼是淫色(淫色原文作淫妇),止不住犯罪。引诱那心不坚固的人,心中习惯了贪婪,正是被咒诅的种类。

Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:

2:15 他们离弃正路,就走差了,随从比珥之子巴兰的路,巴兰就是那贪爱不义之工价的先知。

Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

2:16 他们却为自己的过犯受了责备。那不能说话的驴,以人言拦阻先知的狂妄。

But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.

2:17 这些人是无水的井,是狂风催逼的雾气,有墨黑的幽暗为他们存留。

These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

2:18 他们说虚妄矜夸的大话,用肉身的情欲,和邪淫的事,引诱那些刚才脱离妄行的人。

For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.

2:19 他们应许人得以自由,自己却作败坏的奴仆。因为人被谁制伏就是谁的奴仆。

While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

2:20 倘若他们因认识主救主耶稣基督,得以脱离世上的污秽,后来又在其中被缠住制伏,他们末后的景况,就比先前更不好了。

For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

2:21 他们晓得义路,竟背弃了传给他们的圣命,倒不如不晓得为妙。

For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

2:22 俗语说得真不错,狗所吐的他转过来又吃。猪洗净了又回到泥里去辊。这话在他们身上正合式。

But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.



新约 -- 彼得后书(2Peter) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 3 章 )[]

3:1 亲爱的兄弟阿,我现在写给你们的是第二封信。这两封都是题醒你们,激发你们诚实的心。

This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:

3:2 叫你们记念圣先知豫先所说的话,和主救主的命令,就是使徒所传给你们的。

That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:

3:3 第一要紧的,该知道在末世必有好讥诮的人,随从自己的私欲出来讥诮说,

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

3:4 主要降临的应许在那里呢。因为从列祖睡了以来,万物与起初创造的时候仍是一样。

And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

3:5 他们故意忘记,从太古凭神的命有了天,并从水而出藉水而成的地。

For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

3:6 故此,当时的世界被水淹没就消灭了。

Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

3:7 但现在的天地,还是凭着那命存留,直留到不敬虔之人受审判遭沈沦的日子,用火焚烧。

But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

3:8 亲爱的弟兄阿,有一件事你们不可忘记,就是主看一日如千年,千年如一日。

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

3:9 主所应许的尚未成就,有人以为他是耽延,其实不是耽延,乃是宽容你们,不愿有一人沈沦,乃愿人人都悔改。

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

3:10 但主的日子要像贼来到一样。那日天必大有响声废去,有形质的都要被烈火销化。地和其上的物都要烧尽了。

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

3:11 这一切既都要如此销化,你们为人该当怎样圣洁,怎样敬虔,

Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

3:12 切切仰望神的日子来到。在那日天被烧就销化了,有形质的都要被烈火熔化。

Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

3:13 但我们照他的应许,盼望新天新地,有义居在其中。

Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

3:14 亲爱的弟兄阿,你们既盼望这些事,就当殷勤,使自己没有玷污,无可指摘,安然见主。

Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

3:15 并且要以我主长久忍耐为得救的因由,就如我们所亲爱的兄弟保罗,照着所赐给他的智慧,写了信给你们。

And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

3:16 他一切的信上,也都是讲论这事。信中有些难明白的,那无学问不坚固的人强解,如强解别的经书一样,就自取沈沦。

As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

3:17 亲爱的弟兄阿,你们既然豫先知道这事,就当防备,恐怕被恶人的错谬诱惑,就从自己坚固的地步上坠落。

Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

3:18 你们却要在我们主救主耶稣基督的恩典和知识上有长进。愿荣耀归给他,从今直到永远。阿们。

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.



新约 -- 约翰壹书(1 John) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

1:1 论到从起初原有的生命之道,就是我们所听见所看见的,亲眼看过,亲手摸过的。

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

1:2 (这生命已经显现出来,我们也看见过,现在又作见证,将原与父同在,且显现与我们那永远的生命,传给你们)。

(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)

1:3 我们将所看见,所听见的,传给你们,使你们与我们相交。我们乃是与父并他儿子耶稣基督相交的。

That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

1:4 我们将这些话写给你们,使你们(有古卷作我们)的喜乐充足。

And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

1:5 神就是光,在他毫无黑暗。这是我们从主所听见,又报给你们的信息。

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

1:6 我们若说是与神相交,却仍在黑暗里行,就是说谎话,不行真理了。

If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

1:7 我们若在光明中行,如同神在光明中,就彼此相交,他儿子耶稣的血也洗净我们一切的罪。

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

1:8 我们若说自己无罪,便是自欺,真里不在我们心里了。

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

1:9 我们若认自己的罪,神是信实的,是公义的,必要赦免我们的罪,洗净我们一切的不义。

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1:10 我们若说自己没有犯过罪,便是以神为说谎的。他的道也不在我们心里了。

If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.



新约 -- 约翰壹书(1 John) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

2:1 我小子们哪,我将这些话写给你们,是要叫你们不犯罪。若有人犯罪,在父那里我们有一位中保,就是那义者耶稣基督。

My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

2:2 他为我们的罪作了挽回祭。不是单为我们的罪,也是为普天下人的罪。

And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

2:3 我们若遵守他的诫命,就晓得是认识他。

And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

2:4 人若说我认识他,却不遵守他的诫命,便是说谎话的。真里也不在他心里了。

He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

2:5 凡遵守主道的,爱神的心在他里面实在是完全的,从此我们知道我们是在主里面。

But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

2:6 人若说他住在主里面,就该自己照主所行的去行。

He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

2:7 亲爱的弟兄阿,我写给你们的,不是一条新命令,乃是你们从起初所受的旧命令。这旧命令就是你们所听见的道。

Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.

2:8 再者,我写给你们的,是一条新命令,在主是真的,在你们也是真的。因为黑暗渐渐过去,真光已经照耀。

Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.

2:9 人若说自己在光明中。却恨他的弟兄,他到如今还是在黑暗里。

He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.

2:10 爱弟兄的就是住在光明中,在他并没有绊跌的缘由。

He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.

2:11 唯独恨弟兄的是在黑暗里,且在黑暗里行,也不知道往那里去,因为黑暗叫他眼睛瞎了。

But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

2:12 小子们哪,我写信给你们,因为你们的罪藉着主名得了赦免。

I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.

2:13 父老阿,我写信给你们,因为你们认识那从起初原有的。少年人哪,我写信给你们,因为你们胜了那恶者。小子们哪,我曾写信给你们,因为你们认识父。

I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.

2:14 父老阿,我曾写信给你们,因为你们认识那从起初原有的。少年人哪,我曾写信给你们,因为你们刚强,神的道常存在你们心里,你们也胜了那恶者。

I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

2:15 不要爱世界,和世界上的事。人若爱世界,爱父的心就不在他里面了。

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

2:16 因为凡世界上的事,就像肉体的情欲,眼目的情欲,并今生的骄傲,都不是从父来的,乃是从世界来的。

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

2:17 这世界,和其上的情欲,都要过去。唯独遵行神旨意的,是永远常存。

And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

2:18 小子们哪,如今是末时了。你们曾听见说,那敌基督的要来现在已经有好些敌基督的出来了。从此我们就知道如今是末时了。

Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

2:19 他们从我们中间出去,却不是属我们的。若是属我们的,就必仍旧与我们同在。他们出去,显明都不是属我们的。

They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.

2:20 你们从那圣者受了恩膏,并且知道这一切的事。(或作都有知识)

But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.

2:21 我写信给你们,不是因你们不知道真理,正是因你们知道,并且知道没有虚谎是从真理出来的。

I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.

2:22 谁是说谎话的呢。不是那不认耶稣为基督的吗。不认父与子的,这就是敌基督的。

Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

2:23 凡不认子的就没有父。认子的连父也有了。

Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

2:24 论到你们,务要将那从起初所听见的常存在心里。若将从起初所听见的存在心里,你们就必住在子里面,也必住在父里面。

Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.

2:25 主所应许我们的就是永生。

And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.

2:26 我将这些话写给你们,是指着那引诱你们的人说的。

These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.

2:27 你们从主所受的恩膏,常存在你们心里,并不用人教训你们。自有主的恩膏在凡事上教训你们。这恩膏是真的,不是假的。你们要按这恩膏的教训,住在主里面。

But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

2:28 小子们哪,你们要住在主里面。这样,他若显现,我们就可以坦然无惧。当他来的时候,在他面前也不至于惭愧。

And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.

2:29 你们若知道他是公义的,就知道凡行公义之人都是他所生的。

If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.



新约 -- 约翰壹书(1 John) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

3:1 你看父赐给我们是何等的慈爱,使我们得称为神的儿女。我们也真是他的儿女。世人所以不认识我们,是因未曾认识他。

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

3:2 亲爱的弟兄阿,我们现在是神的儿女,将来如何,还未显明。但我们知道主若显现,我们必要像他。因为必得见他的真体。

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

3:3 凡向他有这指望的,就洁净自己,像他洁净一样。

And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

3:4 凡犯罪的,就是违背律法。违背律法就是罪。

Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

3:5 你们知道主曾显现,是要除掉人的罪。在他并没有罪。

And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

3:6 凡住在他里面的,就不犯罪。凡犯罪的,是未曾看见他,也未曾认识他。

Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.

3:7 小子们哪,不要被人诱惑,行义的才是义人。正如主是义的一样。

Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.

3:8 犯罪的是属魔鬼,因为魔鬼从起初就犯罪。神的儿子显现出来,为要除灭魔鬼的作为。

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

3:9 凡从神生的就不犯罪,因神的道(原文作种)存在他心里。他也不能犯罪,因为他是由神生的。

Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

3:10 从此就显明出谁是神的儿女,谁是魔鬼的儿女。凡不行义的,就不属神。不爱弟兄的也是如此。

In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

3:11 我们应当彼此相爱。这就是你们从起初所听见的命令。

For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.

3:12 不可像该隐。他是属那恶者,杀了他的兄弟。为什么杀了他呢。因为自己的行为是恶的,兄弟的行为是善的。

Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.

3:13 弟兄们,世人若恨你们,不要以为希奇。

Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.

3:14 我们因为爱弟兄,就晓得是已经出死入生了。没有爱心的,仍住在死中。

We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.

3:15 凡恨他弟兄的,就是杀人的。你们晓得凡杀人的,没有永生存在他里面。

Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.

3:16 主为我们舍命,我们从此就知道何为爱。我们也应当为弟兄舍命。

Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

3:17 凡有世上财物的,看见弟兄穷乏,却塞住怜恤的心,爱神的心怎能存在他里面呢。

But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?

3:18 小子们哪,我们相爱,不要只在言语和舌头上。总要在行为和诚实上。

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

3:19 从此就知道我们是属真理的,并且我们的心在神面前可以安稳。

And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.

3:20 我们的心若责备我们,神比我们的心大,一切事没有不知道的。

For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.

3:21 亲爱的弟兄阿,我们的心若不责备我们,就可以向神坦然无惧了。

Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.

3:22 并且我们一切所求的,就从他得着。因为我们遵守他的命令,行他所喜悦的事。

And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

3:23 神的命令就是叫我们信他儿子耶稣基督的名,且照他所赐给我们的命令彼此相爱。

And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.

3:24 遵守神命令的,就住在神里面。神也住在他里面。我们所以知道神住在我们里面,是因他所赐给我们的圣灵。

And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.



新约 -- 约翰壹书(1 John) -- 第 4 章 ( 本篇共有 5 章 )[]

4:1 亲爱的弟兄阿,一切的灵,你们不可都信。总要试验那些灵是出于神的不是。因为世上有许多假先知已经出来了。

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

4:2 凡灵认耶稣基督是成了肉身来的,就是出于神的。从此你们可以认出神的灵来。

Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

4:3 凡灵不认耶稣,就不是出于神。这是敌基督者的灵。你们从前听见他要来。现在已经在世上了。

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

4:4 小子们哪,你们是属神的,并且胜了他们。因为那在你们里面的,比那在世界上的更大。

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

4:5 他们是属世界的。所以论世界的事,世人也听从他们。

They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.

4:6 我们是属神的。认识神的就听从我们。不属神的就不听从我们。从此我们可以认出真理的灵,和谬妄的灵来。

We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

4:7 亲爱的弟兄阿,我们应当彼此相爱。因为爱是从神来的。凡有爱心的,都是由神而生,并且认识神。

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

4:8 没有爱心的,就不认识神。因为神就是爱。

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

4:9 神差他独生子到世间来,使我们藉着他得生,神爱我们的心,在此就显明了。

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

4:10 不是我们爱神,乃是神爱我们,差他的儿子,为我们的罪作了挽回祭,这就是爱了。

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

4:11 亲爱的弟兄阿,神既是这样爱我们,我们也当彼此相爱。

Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

4:12 从来没有人见过神。我们若彼此相爱,神就住在我们里面,爱他的心在我们里面得以完全了。

No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

4:13 神将他的灵赐给我们,从此就知道我们是住在他里面,他也住在我们里面。

Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

4:14 父差子作世人的救主,这是我们所看见且作见证的。

And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.

4:15 凡认耶稣为神儿子的,神就住在他里面。

Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

4:16 神爱我们的心,我们也知道也信。神就是爱。住在爱里面的,就住在神里面,神也住在他里面。

And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

4:17 这样爱在我们里面得以完全,我们就可以在审判的日子,坦然无惧。因为他如何,我们在这世上也如何。

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

4:18 爱里没有惧怕。爱既完全,就把惧怕除去。因为惧怕理含着刑罚。惧怕的人在爱里未得完全。

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

4:19 我们爱,因为神先爱我们。

We love him, because he first loved us.

4:20 人若说,我爱神,却恨他的弟兄,就是说谎话的。不爱他所看见的弟兄,就不能爱没有看见的神。(有古卷作怎能爱没有看见的神呢)。

If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

4:21 爱神的,也当爱弟兄,这是我们从神所受的命令。

And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.



新约 -- 约翰贰书(2 John) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 1 章 )[]

1:1 作长老的写信给蒙拣选的太太,(太太作教会下同),和他的儿女,就是我诚心所爱的。不但我爱,也是一切知道真理之人所爱的。

The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth;

1:2 爱你们是为真理的缘故,这真理存在我们里面,也必永远与我们同在。

For the truth's sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.

1:3 恩惠,怜悯,平安,从父神和他儿子耶稣基督,在真理和爱心上,必常与我们同在。

Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.

1:4 我见你的儿女,有照我们从父所受之命令遵行真理的,就甚欢喜。

I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.

1:5 太太阿,我现在劝你,我们大家要彼此相爱。这并不是我写一条新命令给你,乃是我们从起初所受的命令。

And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

1:6 我们若照他的命令行,这就是爱。你们从起初所听见当行的,就是这命令。

And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

1:7 因为世上有许多迷惑人的出来,他们不认耶稣基督是成了肉身来的。这就是那迷惑人的,敌基督的。

For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

1:8 你们要小心,不要失去你们(有古卷作我们)所作的工,乃要得着满足的赏赐。

Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.

1:9 凡越过基督教训,不常守着的,就没有神。常守这教训的,就有父又有子。

Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

1:10 若有人到你们那里,不是传这教训,不要接他到家里,也不要问他的安。

If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

1:11 因为问他安的,就在他的恶行上有分。

For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

1:12 我还有许多事要写给你们,却不愿意用纸墨写出来。但盼望到你们那里,与你们当面谈论,使你们的喜乐满足。

Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full.

1:13 你那蒙拣选之姐妹的儿女都问你安。

The children of thy elect sister greet thee. Amen.



新约 -- 约翰叁书(3 John) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 1 章 )[]

1:1 作长老的写信给亲爱的该犹,就是我诚心所爱的。

The elder unto the wellbeloved Gaius, whom I love in the truth.

1:2 亲爱的兄弟阿,我愿你凡事兴盛,身体健壮,如你的灵魂兴盛一样。

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

1:3 有弟兄来证明你心里存的真理,正如你按真理而行,我就甚喜乐。

For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth.

1:4 我听见我的儿女们按真理而行,我的喜乐就没有比这个大的。

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.

1:5 亲爱的弟兄阿,凡你向作客旅之弟兄所行的,都是忠心的;

Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethren, and to strangers;

1:6 他们在教会面前证明了你的爱。你若配得过神,帮住他们往前行,这就好了。

Which have borne witness of thy charity before the church: whom if thou bring forward on their journey after a godly sort, thou shalt do well:

1:7 因他们是为主的名(原文作那名)出外,对于外邦人一无所取。

Because that for his name's sake they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles.

1:8 所以我们应该接待这样的人,叫我们与他们一同为真理作工。

We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be fellowhelpers to the truth.

1:9 我曾略略的写信给教会。但那在教会中好为首的丢特腓不接待我们。

I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.

1:10 所以我若去,必要题说他所行的事。就是他用恶言妄论我们。还不以此为足,他自己不接待弟兄,有人愿意接待,他也禁止,并且将接待弟兄的人赶出教会。

Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church.

1:11 亲爱的兄弟阿,不要效法恶,只要效法善。行善的属乎神。行恶的未曾见过神。

Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.

1:12 低米丢行善有众人给他作见证。又有真理给他作见证。就是我们也给他作见证。你也知道我们的见证是真的。

Demetrius hath good report of all men, and of the truth itself: yea, and we also bear record; and ye know that our record is true.

1:13 我原有许多事要写给你,却不愿意用笔墨写给你。

I had many things to write, but I will not with ink and pen write unto thee:

1:14 但盼望快快的见你,我们就当面谈论。

But I trust I shall shortly see thee, and we shall speak face to face.

1:15 愿你平安。众位朋友都问你安。请你替我按着姓名问众位朋友安。

Peace be to thee. Our friends salute thee. Greet the friends by name.



新约 -- 犹大书(Jude) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 1 章 )[]

1:1 耶稣基督的仆人,雅各的弟兄犹大,写信给那被召,在父神里蒙爱,为耶稣基督保守的人。

Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:

1:2 愿怜恤,平安,慈爱,多多的加给你们。

Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.

1:3 亲爱的弟兄阿,我想尽心写信给你们,论我们同得救恩的时候,就不得不写信劝你们,要为从前一次交付圣徒的真道,竭力的争辩。

Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

1:4 因为有些人偷着进来,就是自古被定受刑罚的,是不虔诚的,将我们神的恩变作放纵情欲的机会,并且不认独一的主宰我们(我们或作和我们)主耶稣基督。

For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

1:5 从前主救了他的百姓出埃及地,后来就把那些不信的灭绝了。这一切的事,你们虽然都知道,我却仍要题醒你们。

I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.

1:6 又有不守本位,离开自己住处的天使,主用锁链把他们永远拘留在黑暗里,等候大日的审判。

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

1:7 又如所多玛,蛾摩拉,和周围城邑的人,也照他们一味的行淫,随从逆性的情欲,就受永火的刑罚,作为监戒。

Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

1:8 这些作梦的人,也像他们污秽身体,轻慢主治的,毁谤在尊位的。

Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.

1:9 天使长米迦勒,为摩西的尸首与魔鬼争辩的时候,尚且不敢用毁谤的话罪责他,只说,主责备你吧。

Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

1:10 但这些人毁谤他们所不知道的。他们本性所知道的事与那没有灵性的畜类一样,在这事上竟败坏了自己。

But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.

1:11 他们有祸了。因为走了该隐的道路,又为利往巴兰的错谬里直奔,并在可拉的背判中灭亡了。

Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

1:12 这样的人,在你们的爱席上,与你们同吃的时候,正是礁石。(或作玷污)他们作牧人,只知喂养自己,无所惧怕。是没有雨的云彩,被风飘荡,是秋天没有果子的树,死而又死,连根被拔出来。

These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;

1:13 是海里的狂浪,涌出自己可耻的沫子来。是流荡的星,有墨黑的幽暗为他们永远存留。

Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.

1:14 亚当的七世孙以诺,曾预言这些人说,看哪,主带着他的千万圣者降临,

And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,

1:15 要在众人身上行审判,证实那一切不敬虔的人,所妄行一切不敬虔的事,又证实不敬虔之罪人所说顶撞他的刚愎话。

To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

1:16 这些人是私下议论,常发怨言的,随从自己的情欲而行,口中说夸大的话,为得便宜谄媚人。

These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.

1:17 亲爱的弟兄阿,你们要记念我们主耶稣基督之使徒从前所说的话。

But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;

1:18 他们曾对你们说过,末世必有好讥诮的人,随从自己不敬虔的私欲而行。

How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.

1:19 这就是那些引人结党,属乎血气,没有圣灵的人。

These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.

1:20 亲爱的弟兄阿,你们却要在至圣的真道上造就自己,在圣灵里祷告,

But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

1:21 保守自己常在神的爱中,仰望我们主耶稣基督的怜悯,直到永生。

Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

1:22 有些人存疑心,你们要怜悯他们。

And of some have compassion, making a difference:

1:23 有些人你们要从火中抢出来搭救他们。有些人你们要存惧怕的心怜悯他们。连那被情欲沾染的衣服也当厌恶。

And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

1:24 那能保守你们不失脚,叫你们无瑕无疵,欢欢喜喜站在他荣耀之前的,我们的救主独一的神。

Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

1:25 愿荣耀,威严,能力,权柄,因我们的主耶稣基督,归与他,从万古以前,并现在,直到永永远远。阿们。

To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.



新约 -- 启示录(Revelation) -- 第 1 章 ( 本篇共有 22 章 )[]

1:1 耶稣基督的启示,就是神赐给他,叫他将必要成的事指示他的仆人。他就差遣使者,晓谕他的仆人约翰。

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

1:2 约翰便将神的道,和耶稣基督的见证,凡自己所看见的,都证明出来。

Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

1:3 念这书上预言的,和那些听见又遵守其中所记载的,都是有福的。因为日期近了。

Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

1:4 约翰写信给亚细亚的七个教会。但愿从那昔在今在以后永在的神和他宝座前的七灵。

John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;

1:5 并那诚实作见证的,从死里首先复活,为世上君王元首的耶稣基督。有恩惠平安归与你们。他爱我们,用自己的血使我们脱离罪恶。(脱离有古卷作洗去)

And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

1:6 又使我们成为国民,作他父神的祭司。但愿荣耀权能归给他,直到永永远远。阿们。

And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

1:7 看哪,他驾云降临。众目要看见他,连刺他的人也要看见他。地上的万族都要因他哀哭。这话是真实的。阿们。

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

1:8 主神说,我是阿拉法,我是俄梅戛(阿拉法俄梅戛乃希腊字母首末二字),是昔在今在以后永在的全能者。

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

1:9 我约翰就是你们的弟兄,和你们在耶稣的患难,国度,忍耐里一同有分。为神的道,并为给耶稣作的见证,曾在那名叫拔摩的海岛上。

I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

1:10 当主日我被圣灵感动,听见在我后面有大声如吹号说,

I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

1:11 你所看见的,当写在书上,达与以弗所,士每拿,别迦摩,推雅推喇,撒狄,非拉铁非,老底嘉,那七个教会。

Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

1:12 我转过身来,要看是谁发声与我说话。既转过来,就看见七个金灯台。

And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;

1:13 灯台中间,有一位好像人子,身穿长衣,直垂到脚,胸间束着金带。

And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

1:14 他的头与发皆白,如白羊毛,如雪。眼目如同火焰。

His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

1:15 脚好像在炉中锻炼光明的铜。声音如同众水的声音。

And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

1:16 他右手拿着七星。从他口中出来一把两刃的利剑。面貌如同烈日放光。

And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

1:17 我一看见,就仆倒在他脚前,像死了一样。他用右手按着我说,不要惧怕。我是首先的,我是末后的,

And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:

1:18 又是那存活的。我曾死过,现在又活了,直活到永永远远。并且拿着死亡和阴间的钥匙。

I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

1:19 所以你要把所看见的,和现在的事,并将来必成的事,都写出来。

Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;

1:20 论到你所看见在我右手中的七星,和七个金灯台的奥秘。那七星就是七个教会的使者。七个灯台就是七个教会。

The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.



新约 -- 启示录(Revelation) -- 第 2 章 ( 本篇共有 22 章 )[]

2:1 你要写信给以弗所教会的使者,说,那右手拿着七星,在七个金灯台中间行走的,说,

Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;

2:2 我知道你的行为,劳碌,忍耐,也知道你不能容忍恶人,你也曾试验那自称为使徒却不是使徒的,看出他们是假的来。

I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:

2:3 你也能忍耐,曾为我的名劳苦,并不乏倦。

And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.

2:4 然而有一件事我要责备你,就是你把起初的爱心离弃了。

Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

2:5 所以应当回想你是从那里坠落的,并要悔改,行起初所行的事。你若不悔改,我就临到你那里,把你的灯台从原处挪去。

Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

2:6 然而你还有一个可取的事,就是你恨恶尼哥拉一党人的行为,这也是我所恨恶的。

But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.

2:7 圣灵向众教会所说的话,凡有耳的,就应当听。得胜的,我必将神乐园中生命树的果子赐给他吃。

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

2:8 你要写信给士每拿教会的使者说,那首先的,末后的,死过又活的说,

And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;

2:9 我知道你的患难,你的贫穷,(你却是富足的)也知道那自称是犹太人所说的悔谤话,其实他们不是犹太人,乃是撒但一会的人。

I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

2:10 你将要受的苦你不用怕。魔鬼要你们中间几个人下在监里,叫你们被试炼。你们必受患难十日。你务要至死忠心,我就赐给你那生命的冠冕。

Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

2:11 圣灵向众教会所说的话,凡有耳的,就应当听。得胜的,必不受第二次死的害。

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

2:12 你要写信给别迦摩教会的使者,说,那有两刃利剑的说,

And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

2:13 我知道你的居所,就是有撒但座位之处。当我忠心的见证人安提帕在你们中间,撒但所住的地方被杀之时,你还坚守我的名,没有弃绝我的道。

I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

2:14 然而有几件事我要责备你,因为在你那里,有人服从巴兰的教训。这巴兰曾教导巴勒将绊脚石放在以色列人面前,叫他们吃祭偶像之物,行奸淫的事。

But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

2:15 你那里也有人照样服从了尼哥拉一党人的教训。

So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.

2:16 所以你当悔改。若不悔改,我就快临到你那里,用我口中的剑,攻击他们。

Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

2:17 圣灵向众教会所说的话,凡有耳的就应当听。得胜的,我必将那隐藏的吗哪赐给他。并赐他一块白石,石上写着新名。除了那领受的以外。没有人能认识。

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

2:18 你要写信给推雅推喇教会的使者,说,那眼目如火焰,脚像光明铜的神之子,说,

And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

2:19 我知道你的行为,爱心,信心,勤劳,忍耐。又知道你末后所行的善事,比起初所行的更多。

I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

2:20 然而有一件事我要责备你,就是你容让那自称是先知的妇人耶洗别教导我的仆人,引诱他们行奸淫,吃祭偶像之物。

Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

2:21 我曾给他悔改的机会,他却不肯悔改他的淫行。

And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

2:22 看哪,我要叫他病卧在床,那些与他行淫的人,若不悔改所行的,我也要叫他们同受大患难。

Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

2:23 我又要杀死他的党类(党类原文作儿女),叫众教会知道,我是那察看人肺腑心肠的。并要照你们的行为报应你们各人。

And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

2:24 至于你们推雅推喇其馀的人,就是一切不从那教训,不晓得他们素常所说撒但深奥之理的人。我告诉你们,我不将别的担子放在你们身上。

But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.

2:25 但你们已经有的,总要持守,直等到我来。

But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.

2:26 那得胜又遵守我命令到底的,我要赐给他权柄制伏列国。

And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

2:27 他必用铁杖辖管他们(辖管原文作牧),将他们如同窑户的瓦器打得粉碎。像我从我父领受的权柄一样。

And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.

2:28 我又要把晨星赐给他。

And I will give him the morning star.

2:29 圣灵向众教会所说的话,凡有耳的就应当听。

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.



新约 -- 启示录(Revelation) -- 第 3 章 ( 本篇共有 22 章 )[]

3:1 你要写信给撒狄教会的使者,说,那有神的七灵和七星的,说,我知道你的行为,按名你是活的,其实是死的。

And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

3:2 你要儆醒,坚固那剩下将要衰微的(衰微原文作死)。因我见你的行为,在我神面前,没有一样是完全的。

Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

3:3 所以要回想你是怎样领受,怎样听见的。又要遵守,并要悔改。若不儆醒,我必临到你那里如同贼一样。我几时临到,你也决不能知道。

Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

3:4 然而在撒狄你还有几名是未曾污秽自己衣服的。他们要穿白衣与我同行。因为他们是配得过的。
