1Meanwhile, when a crowd of many thousands had gathered, so that they were trampling on one another, Jesus began to speak first to his disciples, saying: "Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

12:1 这时,有几万人聚集,甚至彼此践踏。耶稣开讲,先对门徒说:“你们要防备法利赛人的酵,就是假冒为善。

2There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.

12:2 掩盖的事,没有不露出来的;隐藏的事,没有不被人知道的。

3What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.

12:3 因此,你们在暗中所说的,将要在明处被人听见;在内室附耳所说的,将要在房上被人宣扬。

4"I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more.

12:4 我的朋友,我对你们说:那杀身体以后不能再做什么的,不要怕他们。

5But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after the killing of the body, has power to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him.

12:5 我要指示你们当怕的是谁,当怕那杀了以后又有权柄丢在地狱里的。我实在告诉你们:正要怕他。

6Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies ? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God.

12:6 五个麻雀不是卖二分银子吗?但在 神面前,一个也不忘记;

7Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

12:7 就是你们的头发,也都被数过了。不要惧怕,你们比许多麻雀还贵重!

8"I tell you, whoever acknowledges me before men, the Son of Man will also acknowledge him before the angels of God.

12:8 我又告诉你们,凡在人面前认我的,人子在 神的使者面前也必认他;

9But he who disowns me before men will be disowned before the angels of God.

12:9 在人面前不认我的,人子在 神的使者面前也必不认他。

10And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.

12:10 凡说话干犯人子的,还可得赦免;惟独亵渎圣灵的,总不得赦免。

11"When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say,

12:11 人带你们到会堂,并官府和有权柄的人面前,不要思虑怎么分诉,说什么话,

12for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say."

12:12 因为正在那时候,圣灵要指教你们当说的话。”

13Someone in the crowd said to him, "Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me."

12:13 众人中有一个人对耶稣说:“夫子,请你吩咐我的兄长和我分开家业。”

14Jesus replied, "Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?"

12:14 耶稣说:“你这个人!谁立我作你们断事的官,给你们分家业呢?”

15Then he said to them, "Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions."

12:15 于是对众人说:“你们要谨慎自守,免去一切的贪心,因为人的生命不在乎家道丰富。”

16And he told them this parable: "The ground of a certain rich man produced a good crop.

12:16 就用比喻对他们说:“有一个财主田产丰盛,

17He thought to himself, 'What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.'

12:17 自己心里思想说:‘我的出产没有地方收藏,怎么办呢?’

18"Then he said, 'This is what I'll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.

12:18 又说:‘我要这么办:要把我的仓房拆了,另盖更大的,在那里好收藏我一切的粮食和财物,

19And I'll say to myself, "You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry." '

12:19 然后要对我的灵魂说:灵魂哪,你有许多财物积存,可作多年的费用,只管安安逸逸地吃喝快乐吧!’

20"But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?'

12:20  神却对他说:‘无知的人哪,今夜必要你的灵魂,你所预备的要归谁呢?’

21"This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God."

12:21 凡为自己积财,在 神面前却不富足的,也是这样。”

22Then Jesus said to his disciples: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.

12:22 耶稣又对门徒说:“所以我告诉你们:不要为生命忧虑吃什么,为身体忧虑穿什么;

23Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.

12:23 因为生命胜于饮食,身体胜于衣裳。

24Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!

12:24 你想,乌鸦也不种也不收,又没有仓又没有库, 神尚且养活它。你们比飞鸟是何等地贵重呢!

25Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life ?

12:25 你们哪一个能用思虑使寿数多加一刻呢(注:或作“使身量多加一肘呢”)?

26Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

12:26 这最小的事,你们尚且不能做,为什么还忧虑其余的事呢?

27"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.

12:27 你想,百合花怎么长起来;它也不劳苦,也不纺线。然而我告诉你们:就是所罗门极荣华的时候,他所穿戴的,还不如这花一朵呢!

28If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith!

12:28 你们这小信的人哪,野地里的草今天还在,明天就丢在炉里, 神还给它这样的妆饰,何况你们呢!

29And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it.

12:29 你们不要求吃什么,喝什么,也不要挂心;

30For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them.

12:30 这都是外邦人所求的。你们必须用这些东西,你们的父是知道的。

31But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.

12:31 你们只要求他的国,这些东西就必加给你们了。

32"Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.

12:32 你们这小群,不要惧怕,因为你们的父乐意把国赐给你们。

33Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.

12:33 你们要变卖所有的周济人,为自己预备永不坏的钱囊,用不尽的财宝在天上,就是贼不能近、虫不能蛀的地方。

34For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

12:34 因为,你们的财宝在哪里,你们的心也在那里。

35"Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning,

12:35 你们腰里要束上带,灯也要点着,

36like men waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him.

12:36 自己好像仆人等候主人从婚姻的筵席上回来。他来到叩门,就立刻给他开门。

37It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them.

12:37 主人来了,看见仆人警醒,那仆人就有福了。我实在告诉你们:主人必叫他们坐席,自己束上带,进前伺候他们。

38It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night.

12:38 或是二更天来,或是三更天来,看见仆人这样,那仆人就有福了。

39But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into.

12:39 家主若知道贼什么时候来,就必警醒,不容贼挖透房屋,这是你们所知道的。

40You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him."

12:40 你们也要预备,因为你们想不到的时候,人子就来了。”

41Peter asked, "Lord, are you telling this parable to us, or to everyone?"

12:41 彼得说:“主啊,这比喻是为我们说的呢,还是为众人呢?”

42The Lord answered, "Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time?

12:42 主说:“谁是那忠心有见识的管家,主人派他管理家里的人,按时分粮给他们呢?

43It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns.

12:43 主人来到,看见仆人这样行,那仆人就有福了。

44I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions.

12:44 我实在告诉你们:主人要派他管理一切所有的。

45But suppose the servant says to himself, 'My master is taking a long time in coming,' and he then begins to beat the menservants and maidservants and to eat and drink and get drunk.

12:45 那仆人若心里说‘我的主人必来得迟’,就动手打仆人和使女,并且吃喝醉酒。

46The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.

12:46 在他想不到的日子,不知道的时辰,那仆人的主人要来,重重地处治他(注:或作“把他腰斩了”),定他和不忠心的人同罪。

47"That servant who knows his master's will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows.

12:47 仆人知道主人的意思,却不预备,又不顺他的意思行,那仆人必多受责打;

48But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

12:48 惟有那不知道的,做了当受责打的事,必少受责打。因为多给谁,就向谁多取;多托谁,就向谁多要。

49"I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!

12:49 我来要把火丢在地上,倘若已经着起来,不也是我所愿意的吗?

50But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is completed!

12:50 我有当受的洗还没有成就,我是何等的迫切呢!

51Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division.

12:51 你们以为我来,是叫地上太平吗?我告诉你们:不是,乃是叫人纷争。

52From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three.

12:52 从今以后,一家五个人将要纷争:三个人和两个人相争,两个人和三个人相争;

53They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law."

12:53 父亲和儿子相争,儿子和父亲相争;母亲和女儿相争,女儿和母亲相争;婆婆和媳妇相争,媳妇和婆婆相争。”

54He said to the crowd: "When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, 'It's going to rain,' and it does.

12:54 耶稣又对众人说:“你们看见西边起了云彩,就说:‘要下一阵雨’果然就有。

55And when the south wind blows, you say, 'It's going to be hot,' and it is.

12:55 起了南风,就说:‘将要燥热’也就有了。

56Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky. How is it that you don't know how to interpret this present time?

12:56 假冒为善的人哪,你们知道分辨天地的气色,怎么不知道分辨这时候呢?

57"Why don't you judge for yourselves what is right?

12:57 你们又为何不自己审量什么是合理的呢?

58As you are going with your adversary to the magistrate, try hard to be reconciled to him on the way, or he may drag you off to the judge, and the judge turn you over to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison.

12:58 你同告你的对头去见官,还在路上,务要尽力地和他了结;恐怕他拉你到官面前,官交付差役,差役把你下在监里。

59I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny. "

12:59 我告诉你,若有半文钱没有还清,你断不能从那里出来。”
