馬可福音  第七課

第四章21 41

Mark, Lesson Seven

Chapter 4, verse 21 to 41

4:21 耶穌又對他們說:“燈難道是拿來放在量器底下或床底下的嗎?它不是該放在燈臺上嗎?

4:21 And he said to them,  "Is a lamp brought in to be put under a basket, or under a bed, and not on a stand?

4:22 因為沒有甚麼隱藏的事不被顯明出來,沒有甚麼掩蓋的事不被揭露的。

4:22 For nothing is hidden except to be made manifest; nor is anything secret except to come to light.

4:23 有耳可聽的,就應當聽。

4:23 If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear."

4:24 耶穌又對他們說:“要留心你們所聽到的,你們用甚麼尺度量給人, 神也要用甚麼尺度量給你們,並且要超過尺度給你們。

4:24 And he said to them, "Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you.

4:25 因為那有的,還要給他;那沒有的,就算他有甚麼也要拿去。

4:25 For to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away."

4:26 耶穌說:“神的國好像人在地裡撒種,

4:26 And he said, "The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground. they were able to hear it.

4:27 他夜裡睡覺,白天起來,種子發芽生長,自己也不知道怎麼會這樣的。

4:27 He sleeps and rises night and day, and the seed sprouts and grows; he knows not how.

4:28 地生五穀是自然的,先長苗,後吐穗,最後穗上結滿了子粒。

4:28 The earth produces by itself, first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear.

4:29 莊稼熟了,就派人用鐮刀割下,因為收成的時候到了。

4:29 But when the grain is ripe, at once he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come."  

4:30 又說:“我們要把 神的國比作甚麼呢?我們可以用甚麼比喻來形容它呢

4:30 And he said, "With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it?

4:31 它好像一粒芥菜種,剛種下去的時候,比地上的一切種子都小,

4:31 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown on the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth,

4:32 種下以後,生長起來,卻比一切蔬菜都大,長出大枝子,甚至天空的飛鳥都可以在它的蔭下搭窩。

4:32 yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes larger than all the garden plants and puts out large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade."  

4:33 耶穌用許多這樣的比喻,照著他們所能聽懂的,向他們講道;

4:33 With many such parables he spoke the word to them, as they were able to hear it.

4:34 不用比喻,就不對他們講。只有單獨和自己的門徒在一起的時候,才把一切解釋給他們聽。

4:34 He did not speak to them without a parable, but privately to his own disciples he explained everything.  

4:35 當天黃昏,耶穌對門徒說:“我們渡到海那邊去吧。

4:35 On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, "Let us go across to the other side."

4:36 門徒離開群眾,耶穌已經在船上,他們就載他過去,也有別的船和他同去

4:36 And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him.

4:37 忽然起了狂風,波浪不斷地打進船來,艙裡積滿了水。

4:37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was already filling.

4:38 耶穌卻在船尾靠著枕頭睡著了。門徒把他叫醒,對他說:“老師,我們要死了,你不管嗎?”

4:38 But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, "Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?"

4:39 耶穌起來,斥責了風,又對海說:“不要作聲!安靜吧!”風就停止,大大地平靜了。

4:39 And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, "Peace! Be still!" And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

4:40 然後對他們說:“為甚麼這樣膽怯呢?你們怎麼沒有信心呢?”

4:40 He said to them, "Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?"

4:41 門徒非常懼怕,彼此說:“這到底是誰,連風和海都聽從他?”

4:41 And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, "Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?"

 

 

Mark Chapter 4 verse 21 to 41

A Lamp Under a Basket

21 And he said to them,  "Is a lamp brought in to be put under a basket, or under a bed, and not on a stand?

22 For nothing is hidden except to be made manifest; nor is anything secret except to come to light.

23 If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear."

24 And he said to them, "Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you.

25 For to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away."

The Parable of the Seed Growing

26 And he said,  "The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground.

27 He sleeps and rises night and day, and the seed sprouts and grows; he knows not how.

28 The earth produces by itself, first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear.

29 But when the grain is ripe, at once he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come."

The Parable of the Mustard Seed

30 And he said, "With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it?

31 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown on the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth,

32 yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes larger than all the garden plants and puts out large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade."

33 With many such parables he spoke the word to them, as they were able to hear it.

34 He did not speak to them without a parable, but privately to his own disciples he explained everything.

Jesus Calms a Storm

35 On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, "Let us go across to the other side."

36 And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him.

37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was already filling.

38 But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, "Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?"

39 And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, "Peace! Be still!" And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

40 He said to them, "Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?"

41 And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, "Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?"
