Previous 1 Peter:Chapter 3 Next
伯多祿前書 1 Peter
1同樣,你們做妻子的,應當服從自己的丈夫,好叫那些不信從天主話的,為了妻子無言的品行而受感化,1In like manner also let wives be subject to their husbands: that if any believe not the word, they may be won without the word, by the conversation of the wives.
2因為他們看見了你們懷有敬畏的貞潔品行。2Considering your chaste conversation with fear.
3你們的裝飾不應是外面的髮型、金飾或衣服的裝束,3Whose adorning let it not be the outward plaiting of the hair, or the wearing of gold, or the putting on of apparel:
4而應是那藏於內心,基於不朽的溫柔,和寧靜心神的人格:這在天主前纔是寶貴的。4But the hidden man of the heart in the incorruptibility of a quiet and a meek spirit, which is rich in the sight of God.
5從前那些仰望天主的聖婦,正是這樣裝飾了自己,服從了自己的丈夫。5For after this manner heretofore the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection to their own husbands:
6就如撒辣聽從了亞巴郎,稱他為「主」;你們如果行善,不害怕任何恐嚇,你們就是她的女兒。6As Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters you are, doing well, and not fearing any disturbance.
7同樣,你們作丈夫的,應該憑著信仰的智慧與妻子同居,待她們有如較為脆弱的器皿,尊敬她們,有如與你們共享生命恩寵的繼承人:這樣你們的祈禱便不會受到阻礙。7Ye husbands, likewise dwelling with them according to knowledge, giving honour to the female as to the weaker vessel, and as to the co-heirs of the grace of life: that your prayers be not hindered.
8總之,你們都該同心合意,互表同情,友愛弟兄,慈悲為懷,謙遜溫和;8And in fine, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, being lovers of the brotherhood, merciful, modest, humble:
9總不要以惡報惡,以罵還罵;但要祝福,因為你們原是為繼承祝福而蒙召的。9Not rendering evil for evil, nor railing for railing, but contrariwise, blessing: for unto this are you called, that you may inherit a blessing.
10所以『凡願意愛惜生命,和願意享見幸福日子的,就應謹守口舌,不說壞話,克制咀唇,不言欺詐;10For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile.
11躲避邪惡,努力行善,尋求和平,全心追隨,11Let him decline from evil, and do good: let him seek after peace and pursue it:
12因為上主的雙目垂顧正義的人,他的兩耳俯聽他們的哀聲;但上主的威容敵視作惡的人。』12Because the eyes of the Lord are upon the just, and his ears unto their prayers: but the countenance of the Lord upon them that do evil things.
13如果你們熱心行善,誰能加害你們呢?13And who is he that can hurt you, if you be zealous of good?
14但若你們為正義而受苦,纔是有福的。你們不要害怕人們的恐嚇,也不要心亂。14But if also you suffer any thing for justice' sake, blessed are ye. And be not afraid of their fear, and be not troubled.
15你們但要在心內尊崇基督為主;若有人詢問你們心中所懷希望的理由,你們要時常準備答覆,15But sanctify the Lord Christ in your hearts, being ready always to satisfy every one that asketh you a reason of that hope which is in you.
16且要以溫和、以敬畏之心答覆,保持純潔的良心,好使那些誣告你們在基督內有良好品行的人,在他們誹謗你們的事上,感到羞愧。16But with modesty and fear, having a good conscience: that whereas they speak evil of you, they may be ashamed who falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
17若天主的旨意要你們因行善而受苦,自然比作惡而受苦更好,17For it is better doing well (if such be the will of God) to suffer, than doing ill.
18因為基督也曾一次為罪而死,且是義人代替不義的人,為將我們領到天主面前;就肉身說,他固然被處死了;但就神魂說,他卻復活了。18Because Christ also died once for our sins, the just for the unjust: that he might offer us to God, being put to death indeed in the flesh, but enlivened in the spirit,
19他藉這神魂,曾去給那些在獄中的靈魂宣講過;19In which also coming he preached to those spirits that were in prison:
20這些靈魂從前在諾厄建造方舟的時日,天主耐心期待之時,原是不信的人;當時賴方舟經過水而得救的不多,只有八個生靈。20Which had been some time incredulous, when they waited for the patience of God in the days of Noe, when the ark was a building: wherein a few, that is, eight souls, were saved by water.
21這水所預表的聖洗,如今賴耶穌基督的復活拯救了你們,並不是滌除肉體的污穢,而是向天主要求一純潔的良心。21Whereunto baptism being of the like form, now saveth you also: not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the examination of a good conscience towards God by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
22至於耶穌基督,他升了天,坐在天主的右邊,眾天使、掌權者和異能者都屈伏在他權下。22Who is on the right hand of God, swallowing down death, that we might be made heirs of life everlasting: being gone into heaven, the angels and powers and virtues being made subject to him.
