馬可福音  第六課

第四章1 20

Mark, Lesson Six

Chapter 4, verse 1 to 20

4:1 耶穌又在海邊教導人。有一大群人聚集到他那裡,因此他上船坐下來。船在海中,群眾都朝著海站在岸上。

4:1 Again he began to teach beside the sea. And a very large crowd gathered about him, so that he got into a boat and sat in it on the sea, and the whole crowd was beside the sea on the land.

4:2 他用比喻教訓他們許多事,在教訓中他說:

4:2 And he was teaching them many things in parables, and in his teaching he said to them:

4:3 你們聽著!有一個撒種的出去撒種,

4:3  "Listen! A sower went out to sow.

4:4 撒的時候,有的落在路旁,小鳥飛來就吃掉了。

4:4 And as he sowed, some seed fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured it.

4:5 有的落在泥土不多的石地上,因為泥土不深,很快就長起來。

4:5 Other seed fell on rocky ground, where it did not have much soil, and immediately it sprang up, since it had no depth of soil.

4:6 但太陽一出來,就把它曬乾,又因為沒有根就枯萎了。

4:6 And when the sun rose, it was scorched, and since it had no root, it withered away.

4:7 有的落在荊棘裡,荊棘長起來,把它擠住,它就結不出果實來。

4:7 Other seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no grain.

4:8 有的落在好土裡,就生長繁茂,結出果實,有三十倍的、有六十倍的、有一百倍的。

4:8 And other seeds fell into good soil and produced grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold."

4:9 耶穌又說:“有耳可聽的,就應當聽。

4:9 And he said, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear."

4:10 耶穌獨自一人的時候,那些經常跟著他的人和十二門徒,來問這些比喻的意義。

4:10 And when he was alone, those around him with the twelve asked him about the parables.

4:11 耶穌對他們說:“ 神的國的奧祕,只給你們知道,但對於外人,一切都用比喻,

4:11 And he said to them, "To you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God, but for those outside everything is in parables,

4:12 叫他們‘看是看見了,卻不領悟,聽是聽見了,卻不明白,免得他們回轉過來,得到赦免。’”

4:12 so that "they may indeed see but not perceive, and may indeed hear but not understand, lest they should turn and be forgiven."

4:13 耶穌又對他們說:“你們不明白這個比喻,怎能明白一切比喻呢?

4:13 And he said to them, "Do you not understand this parable? How then will you understand all the parables?

4:14 撒種的人所撒的就是道。

4:14 The sower sows the word.

4:15  那撒在路旁的,就是人聽了道,撒但立刻來,把撒在他心裡的道奪去。

4:15 And these are the ones along the path, where the word is sown: when they hear, Satan immediately comes and takes away the word that is sown in them.

4:16 照樣,那撒在石地上的,就是人聽了道,立刻歡歡喜喜地接受了;

4:16 And these are the ones sown on rocky ground: the ones who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with joy.

4:17 可是他們裡面沒有根,只是暫時的;一旦為道遭遇患難,受到迫害,就立刻跌倒了。

4:17 And they have no root in themselves, but endure for a while; then, when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediatelythey fall away.

4:18 那撒在荊棘裡的,是指另一些人;他們聽了道,

4:18 And others are the ones sown among thorns. They are those who hear the word,

4:19 然而今世的憂慮、財富的迷惑,以及種種的慾望,接連進來,把道擠住,就結不出果實來。

4:19 but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it proves unfruitful.

4:20 那撒在好土裡的,就是人聽了道,接受了,並且結出果實,有三十倍的、有六十倍的、有一百倍的。

4:20 But those that were sown on the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold."

 

 

Mark Chapter 4 verse 1 to 20

The Parable of the Sower

1 Again he began to teach beside the sea. And a very large crowd gathered about him, so that he got into a boat and sat in it on the sea, and the whole crowd was beside the sea on the land.

2 And he was teaching them many things in parables, and in his teaching he said to them:

3 "Listen! A sower went out to sow.

4 And as he sowed, some seed fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured it.

5 Other seed fell on rocky ground, where it did not have much soil, and immediately it sprang up, since it had no depth of soil.

6 And when the sun rose, it was scorched, and since it had no root, it withered away.

7 Other seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no grain.

8 And other seeds fell into good soil and produced grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold."

9 And he said, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear."

The Purpose of the Parables

10 And when he was alone, those around him with the twelve asked him about the parables.

11 And he said to them, "To you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God, but for those outside everything is in parables,

12 so that "they may indeed see but not perceive, and may indeed hear but not understand, lest they should turn and be forgiven."

13 And he said to them, "Do you not understand this parable? How then will you understand all the parables?

14 The sower sows the word.

15 And these are the ones along the path, where the word is sown: when they hear, Satan immediately comes and takes away the word that is sown in them.

16 And these are the ones sown on rocky ground: the ones who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with joy.

17 And they have no root in themselves, but endure for a while; then, when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately they fall away.

18 And others are the ones sown among thorns. They are those who hear the word,

19 but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it proves unfruitful.

20 But those that were sown on the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold."
