路加福音15 Luke

章:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24

15:1 众税吏和罪人,都挨近耶稣要听他讲道。

Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him.

15:2 法利赛人和文士,私下议论说,这个人接待罪人,又同他们吃饭。

And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.

15:3 耶稣就用比喻,说,

And he spake this parable unto them, saying,

15:4 你们中间谁有一百只羊,失去一只,不把这九十九只撇在旷野,去找那失去的羊直到找着呢。

What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?

15:5 找着了,就欢欢喜喜的扛在肩上,回到家里。

And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

15:6 就请朋友邻舍来,对他们说,我失去的羊已经找着了,你们和我一起欢喜吧。

And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.

15:7 我告诉你们,一个罪人悔改,在天上也要这样为他欢喜,较比为九十九个不用悔改的义人,欢喜更大。

I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

15:8 或是一个妇人,有十块钱,若失落一块,岂不点上灯,打扫屋子,细细的找,直到找着吗。

Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?

15:9 找着了,就请朋友邻舍来,对他们说,我失落的那块钱已经找着了,你们和我一同欢喜吧。

And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.

15:10 我告诉你们,一个罪人悔改,在神的使者面前,也是这样为他欢喜。

Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

15:11 耶稣又说,一个人有两个儿子。

And he said, A certain man had two sons:

15:12 小儿子对父亲说,父亲,请你把我应得的家业分给我。他父亲就把产业分给他们。

And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.

15:13 过了不多几日,小儿子就把他一切所有的,都收拾起来,往远方去了。在那里任意放荡,浪费赀财。

And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.

15:14 既耗尽了一切所有的,又遇着那地方大遭饥荒,就穷苦起来。

And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.

15:15 于是去投靠那地方的一个人,那人打发他到田里去放猪。

And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

15:16 他恨不得拿猪所吃的豆荚充饥。也没有人给他。

And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.

15:17 他醒悟过来,就说,我父亲有多少的雇工,口粮有馀,我倒在这里饿死吗。

And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!

15:18 我要起来,到我父亲那里去,向他说,父亲,我得罪了天,又得罪了你。

I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,

15:19 从今以后,我不配称为你的儿子,把我当作一个雇工吧。

And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.

15:20 于是起来往他父亲那里去。相离还远,他父亲看见,就动了慈心,跑去抱着他的颈项,连连舆他亲嘴。

And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

15:21 儿子说,父亲,我得罪了天,又得罪了你,从今以后,我不配称为你的儿子。

And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.

15:22 父亲却吩咐仆人说,把那上好的袍子快拿出来给他穿。把戒指戴在他指头上。把鞋穿在他脚上。

But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:

15:23 把那肥牛犊牵来宰了,我们可以吃喝快乐。

And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:

15:24 因为我这个儿子,是死而复活,失而又得的。他们就快乐起来。

For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.

15:25 那时,大儿子正在田里。他回来离家不远,听见作乐跳舞的声音。

Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.

15:26 便叫过一个仆人来,问是什么事。

And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.

15:27 仆人说,你兄弟来了。你父亲,因为得他无灾无病的回来,把牛犊宰了。

And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.

15:28 大儿子却生气,不肯进去。他父亲就出来劝他。

And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.

15:29 他对父亲说,我服事你这多年,从来没有违背过你的命。你并没有给我一只山羊羔,叫我和朋友,一同快乐。

And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:

15:30 但你这个儿子,和娼妓吞尽了你的产业,他一来了,你倒为他宰了肥牛犊。

But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.

15:31 父亲对他说,儿阿,你常和我同在,我一切所有的,都是你的。

And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.

15:32 只是你这个兄弟是死而复活,失而又得的,所以我们理当欢喜快乐。

It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

路加福音15参考

也许你就是那第一百只羊,可知道谁寻找你,你想他这样做是不是太傻?
15:3-6 那牧人撇下九十九只羊去找那一只迷路的羊似乎很愚蠢,但神对每个人的爱如此之大,以至他要逐一寻找每一个人,并在找到时大大的喜乐。耶稣跟罪人在一起,是因为他要去找迷路的羊,就是到那些被认为是已经没有希望的罪人那里,把神国的福音带给他们。

我在暗途中行走,我看不见也感不到人间的爱,爱,你在哪儿?神,你可在?
15:4-5 神不但赦免那些来到他面前悔改、求怜悯的罪人,更愿意耐心寻找罪人,然后欢喜地赦免他们,这是何等奇妙的爱!就是这种爱,救主耶稣降世,寻找失丧的人,并拯救他们。这种奇妙的爱也是为你的,如果你觉得离开神很远,不要失望,神正在寻找你!

失而复得的心情是如何的?从前走迷,若转回,你想主心有多安慰?
15:8-10 巴勒斯坦妇女收十块钱作为结婚礼物,这些钱与结婚戒指一样具有感情价值,失去了一块钱是很叫人心疼的。正如一个妇人会因为找回她所失去的一块钱而欢天喜地一样,天使也会因一个罪人悔改而欢喜快乐。对神来说,每一个人都同样珍贵,他因每一个失丧的人而伤心,也因找到他的一个儿女,并把他带进他的国而喜乐。

早些分家产,早些减轻父亲的辛劳,小儿子是这样想的吗?
15:12 小儿子所得的那分家产是家产的三分之一,大儿子可得三分之二(参申21:17),虽然有些父亲会提前把遗产分给儿子,自己退休不再管理产业,但在大多数情况下,儿子应在父亲死后才得到这分家产。这里特别的地方是小儿子主动提出分家产,这种做法显出他蔑视父亲作为一家之主的权威。

在猪圈中生活,靠养猪活命,那怎会是犹太人做的?
15:15 根据摩西的律法,猪是不洁的动物(参利11:2-8;申14:8),不能用来食用或献祭,犹太人甚至不去摸它们。要一个犹太人降卑喂猪已是一个极大的羞辱,更何况是吃猪的食物呢!这个小儿子是真正陷入绝境了。

一定要错过才会回头?一定要失去才会珍惜?你不会如那个小儿子吧……
15:17 有些人要到最坏的地步才会醒觉。这个小儿子渴望得到自由,过自己喜爱的生活,这与今天许多人所渴望的一样。也许要使他们经历极大的哀伤和惨痛,才会去仰望惟一可以帮助他们的神。你是否试图我行我素,走那小儿子所走的路呢?如果是,要立即悬崖勒马,免得你和你家人过于悲伤。

多少次我们背弃神,他都在等待;回顾生命历程,你经历了多少次神的大爱?
15:20 在前两个故事中,那两位寻索者主动地寻找丢失的羊和钱,因为它们不能自己回来。在这个故事里,那父亲观望等候,他是面对一个有自己意志的人,他的儿子若回来,他已准备好迎接他。神的爱是不变、忍耐和接纳的,他会寻找我们,给我们回应的机会,但他不会强迫我们到他那里去。像这位父亲一样,他耐心等待我们醒觉。

神啊我不配,我自私,我自高,我自以为是,我多番不理你,为何仍爱我?
15:24 那块钱不是因为自己的错误而丢失(15:8),那只羊是因为愚蠢地溜走而迷路(参15:3-4);这个小儿子则是因为自私而离去的(15:12)。不论罪人因为甚么原因而失丧,神的大爱都会临到罪人那里,寻找他们。

事情可没有变,但若能宽恕,所面对的光景将截然不同,不信?试试看……
15:30 在这个浪子的故事里,父亲与大儿子的反应成为对比。父亲是乐于宽恕和满有喜乐的;大儿子则是不愿意宽恕和满怀仇恨的。父亲因为喜乐,所以宽恕小儿子;大儿子因为怀恨,所以拒绝宽恕他的兄弟。苦毒与喜乐的分别在于我们宽恕人的能力。假如你拒绝宽恕人,你便是错过了一个经历喜乐和与人分享喜乐的大好机会。

我做了那么多,他可一点贡献也没有,神你好不公平啊……
15:32 这个故事中的大儿子代表法利赛人,他们因为罪人被迎接到神的国里而愤愤不平。他们认为自己为神牺牲又做了很多善事。当神宽大地赦免一些似乎比我们差许多的罪人,我们也心有不甘时,我们便与法利赛人一样。
