罗马书15 Romans

章:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16

15:1 我们坚固的人,应当担代不坚固人的软弱,不求自己的喜悦。

We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

15:2 我们各人务要叫邻舍喜悦,使他得益处,建立德行

Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.

15:3 因为基督也不求自己的喜悦,如经上所记,辱骂你人的辱骂,都落在我身上。

For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.

15:4 从前所写的圣经都是为教训我们写的,叫我们因圣经所生的忍耐和安慰,可以得着盼望。

For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

15:5 但愿赐忍耐安慰的神,叫你们彼此同心,效法基督耶稣。

Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:

15:6 一心一口,荣耀神,我们主耶稣基督的父。

That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

15:7 所以你们要彼此接纳,如同基督接纳你们一样,使荣耀归与神。

Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.

15:8 我说,基督是为神真理作了受割礼人的执事,要证实所应许列祖的话。

Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:

15:9 并叫外邦人,因他的怜悯,荣耀神。如经上所记,因此我要在外邦中称赞你,歌颂你的名。

And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name.

15:10 又说,你们外邦人,当与主的百姓一同欢乐。

And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people.

15:11 又说,外邦阿,你们当赞美主。万民哪,你们都当颂赞他。

And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people.

15:12 又有以赛亚说,将来有耶西的根,就是那兴起来要治理外邦的。外邦人要仰望他。

And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust.

15:13 但愿使人有盼望的神,因信将诸般的喜乐平安,充满你们的心,使你们藉着圣灵的能力,大有盼望。

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

15:14 弟兄们,我自己也深信你们是满有良善,充足了诸般的知识,也能彼此劝戒。

And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.

15:15 但我稍微放胆写给你们,是要题醒你们的记性,特因神所给我的恩典,

Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the more boldly unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that is given to me of God,

15:16 使我为外邦人作基督耶稣的仆役,作神福音的祭司,叫所献上的外邦人,因着圣灵,成为圣洁,可蒙悦纳。

That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.

15:17 所以论到神的事我在基督耶稣里有可夸的。

I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God.

15:18 除了基督藉我作的那些事,我什么都不敢题。只题他藉我言语作为,用神迹奇事的能力,并圣灵的能力,使外邦人顺服。

For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,

15:19 甚至我从耶路撒冷,直转到以利哩古,到处传了基督的福音。

Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.

15:20 我立了志向,不在基督的名被称过的地方传福音,免得建造在别人的根基上。

Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man’s foundation:

15:21 就如经上所记,未曾闻知他信息的,将要看见。未曾听过的,将要明白。

But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that have not heard shall understand.

15:22 我因多次被拦阻,总不得到你们那里去。

For which cause also I have been much hindered from coming to you.

15:23 但如今在这里再没有可传的地方,而且这好几年,我切心想望到西班牙去的时候,可以到你们那里。

But now having no more place in these parts, and having a great desire these many years to come unto you;

15:24 盼望从你们那里经过,得见你们,先与你们彼此交往,心里稍微满足,然后蒙你们送行。

Whensoever I take my journey into Spain, I will come to you: for I trust to see you in my journey, and to be brought on my way thitherward by you, if first I be somewhat filled with your company.

15:25 但现在我往耶路撒冷去,供给圣徒。

But now I go unto Jerusalem to minister unto the saints.

15:26 因为马其顿,和亚该亚人乐意凑出捐项,给耶路撒冷圣徒中的穷人。

For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem.

15:27 这固然是他们乐意的。其实也算是所欠的债。因外邦人,既然在他们属灵的好处上有分,就当把养身之物供给他们

It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things.

15:28 等我辨完了这事,把这善果向他们交付明白,我就要路过你们那里,往西班牙去。

When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you into Spain.

15:29 我也晓得去的时候,必带着基督丰盛的恩典而去。

And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ.

15:30 弟兄们,我藉着我们主耶稣基督,又藉着圣灵的爱,劝你们与我一同竭力,为我祈求神。

Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;

15:31 叫我脱离在犹太不顺从的人,也叫我为耶路撒冷所辨的捐项,可蒙圣徒悦纳。

That I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Judaea; and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of the saints;

15:32 并叫我顺着神的旨意,欢欢喜喜的到你们那里,与你们同得安息。

That I may come unto you with joy by the will of God, and may with you be refreshed.

15:33 愿赐平安的神,常和你们众人同在,阿们。

Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.

罗马书15参考

务要讨邻舍的喜悦──去讨好人家?保罗不是这个意思吧,可是这里……
15:2 保罗反对我们一心去讨人的喜悦,凡事逢迎(参加1:10),但是如果为了别人的益处,我们也应该放下一些个人的利益,我们不应该以个人信念作为对肢体冷漠的藉口。

为何定要读圣经?为何要查经?为何……心中疑惑此中解,看保罗对我们所说的……
15:4 圣经知识影响我们对现在和将来的态度,我们对神过去的作为了解得越多,就越有信心面对未来的日子。我们必须努力研读圣经,增加我们对神的信心,知道他的旨意对我们是最好的。

耶稣那样爱我,要我用主的方式爱人,那我岂不要付出很多?我可以吗……
15:5-7 接受基督在我们生命每个方面的主权,表示我们要从他的价值观和他的角度来看事物。就好像我们接纳耶稣基督对圣经的权威、对天国的性质、对复活的看法等一样,我们也要用他的爱去对待其他的基督徒(有合一的心)。只要我们的信心不断增长,更深入地认识耶稣,就越有能力去每天保持爱里的合一。(有关基督的态度,请参腓2章。)

15:12 “耶西的根”是指基督是耶西的子孙,耶西是大卫的父亲(参撒上16:1)。

保罗竟说出如此骄傲的话,不是吗?他竟在“夸口”,你说我会错意,这……
15:17 保罗并没有以他自己的成就夸口,却只夸耀神在他身上所做成的事。以神的工作为荣耀,不但不是罪,反而是值得景仰的。假如你不能确定自己引以为傲的是出于自私还是出于神,那就可以这样问一下自己:“我对神透过别人成就的大事是否引以为荣,就像神透过我成就的一样?”

15:19 以利哩古是当时罗马帝国的领土,在意大利跟希腊之间的亚得里亚海之上,位于现在的南斯拉夫境内(参1章地图)。

传过的地方不再去,这是保罗传福音的坚持,有人笑他傻,你不会吧……
15:20-22 保罗很早就希望拜访罗马教会,由于一直以来他都听到罗马教会的好消息,得知该地教会发展良好,觉得不需要急于前往,于是多次拖延了行程。他觉得那些还没有听闻福音的地方更需要他前去帮助。

再无可传的地方,他将会到哪儿?西班牙?罗马?
15:23-24 “在这里……”是指保罗在哥林多城已经完成了他的工作。罗马书很可能就是在哥林多写成的。保罗在亚该亚省的三个月行程中(参徒20:3),大部分时间都留在哥林多城里。他相信自己已经完成了神要他做的事情,因此盼望去新的地方传福音──罗马以西的西班牙。保罗最后到达罗马的时候,竟然是一个阶下囚(参徒28章)。但是教会的传统都说保罗曾经一度获释,他就是趁那个机会去西班牙传福音。这次旅程并没有记载在使徒行传中。

那些外邦人为何竟会如此甘心奉献?我……
15:27 这些外邦人已经接受了从耶路撒冷来的福音(属灵的好处),他们当然也希望对耶路撒冷信徒提供一些经济上的帮助(物质的福气)。

保罗这次在想些甚么?猜猜,他为何要去西班牙?
15:28 保罗计划去西班牙,因为那里是当时文明世界的最西端。同时,在西班牙也有很多伟大的思想家和具有影响力的领袖,如卢肯、马休尔、哈德良等,他们都是罗马人所熟悉的。可能保罗想藉著这种气氛使基督教的信仰更快速地传开。

有时候不经意地就让祷告成了向神讨东西的时刻,保罗却不然,他……
15:30 我们常常把祈祷视为得著安慰、回应和向神祈求的机会,但是保罗在这里要求信徒藉著祈祷跟他一起竭力挣扎。祈祷是信徒的一件重要兵器,当我们为别人代祷的时候,也是跟他一起抵挡撒但。你的祈祷反映出这方面的迫切没有呢?
