King James Version

Matthew 5

1And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:

And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;

24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:

32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:

34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:

35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:

39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.

41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

马太福音 5

八福

1耶稣看见这些人群,就上了山,刚坐下,门徒便走到祂跟前, 祂就开口教导他们,说:

“心灵贫穷的人有福了,
因为天国是他们的。
哀痛的人有福了,
因为他们必得安慰。
谦和的人有福了,
因为他们必承受土地。
爱慕公义如饥似渴的人有福了,
因为他们必得饱足。
心存怜悯的人有福了,
因为他们必蒙上帝的怜悯。
心灵纯洁的人有福了,
因为他们必看见上帝。
使人和睦的人有福了,
因为他们必被称为上帝的儿女。
10 为义受迫害的人有福了,
因为天国是他们的。

11 “人们因为我的缘故侮辱、迫害、肆意毁谤你们,你们就有福了。 12 要欢喜快乐,因为你们在天上有很大的奖赏。他们也曾这样迫害以前的先知。

盐和光

13 “你们是世上的盐。如果盐失去咸味,怎能使它再变咸呢?它将毫无用处,只有被丢在外面任人践踏。 14 你们是世上的光,如同建在山上的城一样无法隐藏。 15 人点亮了灯,不会把它放在斗底下,而是放在灯台上,好照亮全家。 16 同样,你们的光也应当照在人面前,好让他们看见你们的好行为,便赞美你们天上的父。

成全律法

17 “不要以为我是来废除律法和先知书,我不是来废除,乃是来成全。 18 我实在告诉你们,就是到天地都消失了,律法的一点一划都不会废除,全都要成就。 19 所以,谁违背这些诫命中最小的一条,并教导别人违背,谁在天国将被称为最小的。但谁遵守这些诫命,并教导别人遵守,谁在天国将被称为大的。 20 我告诉你们,除非你们的义胜过律法教师和法利赛人的义,否则断不能进天国。

论仇恨

21 “你们听过吩咐古人的话,‘不可杀人,杀人的要受审判。’ 22 但我告诉你们,凡无缘无故[a]向弟兄发怒的,要受审判;凡骂弟兄是白痴的,要受公会[b]的审判;凡骂弟兄是笨蛋的,难逃地狱的火。

23 “所以,你在祭坛前献祭的时候,要是想起有弟兄和你有过节, 24 就该把祭物留在祭坛前,先去跟他和好,然后再来献祭。

25 “趁着你和告你的人还在去法庭的路上,你要赶紧与对方和解。不然,他会把你交给审判官,审判官会把你交给差役关进监牢。 26 我实在告诉你,要是有一分钱没有还清,你绝不能从那里出来。

论通奸

27 “你们听过这样的话,‘不可通奸。’ 28 但我告诉你们,凡看见妇女就动淫念的,他在心里已经犯了通奸罪。 29 如果你的右眼使你犯罪,就把它剜掉!宁可失去身体的一部分,也比整个人下地狱好。 30 如果你的右手使你犯罪,就把它砍掉!宁可失去身体的一部分,也比整个人下地狱好。

论休妻

31 “还有话说,‘人若休妻,必须给她休书’。 32 但我告诉你们,除非是妻子不贞,否则,休妻就是使妻子犯通奸罪,娶被休女子的人也犯了通奸罪。

论起誓

33 “你们也听过吩咐古人的话,‘不可违背誓言,总要向主遵守所起的誓。’ 34 但我告诉你们,不可起誓。不可指着天起誓,因为天是上帝的宝座。 35 不可指着地起誓,因为地是上帝的脚凳。不可指着圣城耶路撒冷起誓,因为那是大君王的城。 36 也不可指着自己的头起誓,因为你不能使一根头发变黑或变白。 37 你们说话,是就说是,不是就说不是,多说的便是来自那恶者[c]

论爱仇敌

38 “你们听过这样的话,‘以眼还眼,以牙还牙。’ 39 但我告诉你们,不要跟恶人作对。有人打你的右脸,连左脸也转过来让他打。 40 有人想控告你,要夺取你的内衣,连外衣也给他。 41 有人强迫你走一里路,你就跟他走二里路。 42 有求你的,就给他;有向你借的,不可拒绝他。

43 “你们听过这样的话,‘要爱邻居,恨仇敌。’ 44 但我告诉你们,要爱仇敌,为迫害你们的人祷告。 45 这样,你们才是天父的孩子。因为祂让阳光照好人也照坏人,降雨给义人也给恶人。 46 如果你们只爱那些爱你们的人,有什么值得嘉奖的呢?就是税吏也会这样做。 47 如果你们只问候自己的弟兄,有什么特别呢?就是外族人也会这样做。 48 所以,你们要纯全,正如你们的天父是纯全的。
