撒旦的诱惑


吴春晓

  Jesus was then led away by the Spirit2) into the wilderness, to be tempted3) by the devil.
  For forty days and nights he fasted4), and at the end he was quite hungry. The tempter saw this, came to him and said, "If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread." Jesus answered, "Scripture5) says, 'Man cannot live on bread alone; he lives on every word that God utters.'"
  The devil took him to a very high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in their glory. "All these," he said, "I will give you, if you will only fall down and do me homage6)." But Jesus said, "Begone7), Satan! Scripture says, 'You shall do homage to the Lord your God and worship him alone.'"
  The devil then took him to the Holy City and set him on a pinnacle8) of the temple. "If you are the Son of God," he said, "throw yourself down; for Scripture says, 'he will put his angels in charge of you, and they will support you in their arms, for fear you should strike your foot against a stone.'"
  Jesus answered him, "Scripture says again, 'You are not to put the Lord your God to the test.'"
  And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.
  Having stood the temptation of Satan, Jesus began to preach, saying, "Repent9), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand10)." And he went about, preaching the gospel11) of the kingdom and healing every disease and every infirmity12) among the people. So his fame spread throughout all Syria.
  
  耶稣被圣灵引到旷野,接受魔鬼的试探。
  他斋戒四十个昼夜,最后感到非常饥饿。撒旦见状,就走上前对他说:“如果你真是上帝之子,让这些石头变成面包。”耶稣回答说:“经书上说,‘人不是光靠食物而活,人要靠上帝讲的每句话活着。’”
  魔鬼把他带到一座高山之巅,把世上所有繁荣昌盛的国家指给他看,并说:“如果你肯拜服在地,向我表示敬意,我就把这一切全都赐给你。”但耶稣却说:“走开,撒旦!经书上讲‘你要敬拜你的天主上帝,而且只崇拜他。’”
  然后,魔鬼又把他带到圣城,让他站在圣殿顶上。“你若是圣子,”他说:“就跳下去,因为经书上讲‘主会吩咐他的天使照看你,他们会用手臂托着你,以免你的脚撞到石头上。’”
  耶稣回答说:“经书上还说‘不可试探你的天主上帝。’”
  当魔鬼结束所有的诱惑后,他暂时离开了耶稣。
  经受了魔鬼的诱惑后,耶稣就开始了他的传教。他说:“忏悔吧,因为天国已经近了。”他四处宣讲上帝的福音,救治人们的各种疾病。这样,他的名声传遍了整个叙利亚。
