路加福音 10

差遣門徒

1事後,主揀選了七十個門徒[a],差遣他們兩個兩個地出去,先到祂將要去的城鎮村莊, 並對他們說:「要收割的莊稼很多,工人卻很少,因此你們要祈求莊稼的主人派更多的工人去收割祂的莊稼。

「你們去吧!我差你們出去,就像把羊羔送入狼群。 錢袋、背包和鞋都不要帶,在路上也不要與人寒暄。 無論到哪一戶人家,要先說,『願祝福臨到這家!』 如果那裡有配得祝福的人,祝福自然會臨到那人,否則祝福仍歸給你們。 不要搬來搬去,要固定住在一家,接受那家的款待,因為工人理應得到工錢。

「你們無論到哪一個城鎮,如果人們接待你們,就吃他們擺上的飲食。 要醫治那城裡的病人,告訴他們,『上帝的國臨近你們了。』 10 但如果哪一個城鎮的人不歡迎你們,你們就到街上宣告, 11 『就連你們城裡的塵土粘在我們腳上,我們都要跺掉,但是要知道,上帝的國臨近了。』 12 我告訴你們,在審判之日,那城所受的刑罰將比所多瑪所受的還重!

13 「哥拉汛啊,你大禍臨頭了!伯賽大啊,你大禍臨頭了!我在你們當中所行的神蹟,如果行在泰爾和西頓,那裡的人早就身披麻衣,頭蒙灰塵,坐在地上悔改了。 14 在審判之日,你們將比泰爾和西頓受更重的刑罰!

15 「迦百農啊,你將被提升到天上嗎?不!你將被打落到陰間。」

16 耶穌繼續對門徒說:「誰聽從你們,就是聽從我;誰拒絕你們,就是拒絕我;拒絕我的,就是拒絕差我來的那位。」

17 七十個門徒興高采烈地回來說:「主啊,我們奉你的名行事,甚至降服了鬼魔。」

18 耶穌回答說:「我看見撒旦像閃電一樣從天上墜下。 19 我已經給你們權柄,使你們能踐踏蛇和蠍子,勝過仇敵的權勢,沒有什麼能傷害你們。 20 然而,不要為了邪靈向你們降服而高興,要因你們的名字記錄在天上而高興。」

21 就在這時候,耶穌受聖靈感動,充滿喜樂地說:「父啊,天地的主,我頌讚你!因為你把這些事向聰明、有學問的人隱藏起來,卻啟示給像孩童一般的人。父啊!是的,這正是你的美意。 22 我父將一切交給了我。除了父,沒有人認識子;除了子和受子啟示的人,沒有人認識父。」

23 隨後,耶穌轉身悄悄地對門徒說:「誰看到你們今日所看到的,誰就有福了。 24 我告訴你們,以前有許多先知和君王渴望看見你們所看見的,聽見你們所聽見的,卻未能如願。」

好撒瑪利亞人的比喻

25 有一次,一名律法教師站起來試探耶穌,說:「老師,我應該怎樣做才能得永生呢?」

26 耶穌反問他:「律法怎麼說?你怎麼理解?」

27 律法教師答道:「『你要全心、全情、全力、全意愛主——你的上帝』,又要『愛鄰如己』。」 28 耶穌說:「你答得對,照著去做就有永生了。」

29 律法教師想證明自己有理,就問:「那麼,誰是我的鄰居呢?」

30 耶穌回答說:「有個人從耶路撒冷去耶利哥,途中被劫。強盜剝了他的衣服,把他打個半死,丟在那裡,然後揚長而去。

31 「剛好有位祭司經過,看見那人躺在地上,連忙從旁邊繞過,繼續趕路。 32 又有個利未人經過,也跟先前那個祭司一樣從旁邊繞過去了。

33 「後來,有位撒瑪利亞人[b]經過,看見這個人,就動了慈心, 34 連忙上前用油和酒替他敷傷口,包紮妥當,然後把他扶上自己騎的牲口,帶到附近的客店照料。 35 次日還交給店主兩個銀幣,說,『請替我好好照顧這個人。如果錢不夠的話,等我回來再補給你。』 36 那麼,你認為這三個人中誰是被劫者的鄰居呢?」

37 律法教師說:「是那個同情他的人。」

耶穌說:「你去照樣做吧。」

上好的福分

38 耶穌和門徒去耶路撒冷的途中路過一個村莊,遇到一位名叫瑪大的女子接待他們到家裡作客。 39 瑪大的妹妹瑪麗亞坐在耶穌腳前聽道, 40 瑪大為了招待客人忙亂不已,於是上前對耶穌說:

「主啊,我妹妹讓我一個人伺候大家,你都不管嗎?請你叫她來幫幫我吧。」

41 耶穌對她說:「瑪大,瑪大,你為太多事情憂慮煩惱。 42 其實最要緊的事只有一件,瑪麗亞選擇了上好的,是奪不走的。」

  1. 10·1 七十個門徒」有古卷為「七十二個門徒」。
  2. 10·33 猶太人向來輕視撒瑪利亞人,認為他們血統不純正,因此互不往來。

New International Reader's Version

Luke 10

Jesus Sends Out the Seventy-Two

1After this the Lord appointed 72 others. He sent them out two by two ahead of him. They went to every town and place where he was about to go. He told them, “The harvest is huge, but the workers are few. So ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest field. Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Do not take a purse or bag or sandals. And don’t greet anyone on the road.

“When you enter a house, first say, ‘May this house be blessed with peace.’ If someone there works to bring peace, your blessing of peace will rest on them. If not, it will return to you. Stay there, and eat and drink anything they give you. Workers are worthy of their pay. Do not move around from house to house.

“When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is given to you. Heal the sick people who are there. Tell them, ‘God’s kingdom has come near to you.’ 10 But what if you enter a town and are not welcomed? Then go into its streets and say, 11 ‘We wipe from our feet even the dust of your town. We do it to warn you. But here is what you can be sure of. God’s kingdom has come near.’ 12 I tell you this. On judgment day it will be easier for Sodom than for that town.

13 “How terrible it will be for you, Chorazin! How terrible for you, Bethsaida! Suppose the miracles done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon. They would have turned away from their sins long ago. They would have put on the rough clothing people wear when they’re sad. They would have sat down in ashes. 14 On judgment day it will be easier for Tyre and Sidon than for you. 15 And what about you, Capernaum? Will you be lifted up to the heavens? No! You will go down to the place of the dead.

16 “Whoever listens to you listens to me. Whoever does not accept you does not accept me. But whoever does not accept me does not accept the one who sent me.”

17 The 72 returned with joy. They said, “Lord, even the demons obey us when we speak in your name.”

18 Jesus replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 I have given you authority to walk all over snakes and scorpions. You will be able to destroy all the power of the enemy. Nothing will harm you. 20 But do not be glad when the evil spirits obey you. Instead, be glad that your names are written in heaven.”

21 At that time Jesus was full of joy through the Holy Spirit. He said, “I praise you, Father. You are Lord of heaven and earth. You have hidden these things from wise and educated people. But you have shown them to little children. Yes, Father. This is what you wanted to do.

22 “My Father has given all things to me. The Father is the only one who knows who the Son is. And the only ones who know the Father are the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to make the Father known.”

23 Then Jesus turned to his disciples. He said to them in private, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. 24 I tell you, many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see. But they didn’t see it. They wanted to hear what you hear. But they didn’t hear it.”

The Story of the Good Samaritan

25 One day an authority on the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to receive eternal life?”

26 “What is written in the Law?” Jesus replied. “How do you understand it?”

27 He answered, “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Love him with all your strength and with all your mind.’ (Deuteronomy 6:5) And, ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ ” (Leviticus 19:18)

28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do that, and you will live.”

29 But the man wanted to make himself look good. So he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

30 Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho. Robbers attacked him. They stripped off his clothes and beat him. Then they went away, leaving him almost dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down that same road. When he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 A Levite also came by. When he saw the man, he passed by on the other side too. 33 But a Samaritan came to the place where the man was. When he saw the man, he felt sorry for him. 34 He went to him, poured olive oil and wine on his wounds and bandaged them. Then he put the man on his own donkey. He brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two silver coins. He gave them to the owner of the inn. ‘Take care of him,’ he said. ‘When I return, I will pay you back for any extra expense you may have.’

36 “Which of the three do you think was a neighbor to the man who was attacked by robbers?”

37 The authority on the law replied, “The one who felt sorry for him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do as he did.”

Jesus at the Home of Martha and Mary

38 Jesus and his disciples went on their way. Jesus came to a village where a woman named Martha lived. She welcomed him into her home. 39 She had a sister named Mary. Mary sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40 But Martha was busy with all the things that had to be done. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, my sister has left me to do the work by myself. Don’t you care? Tell her to help me!”

41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered. “You are worried and upset about many things. 42 But few things are needed. Really, only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better. And it will not be taken away from her.”
