撒旦的誘惑


吳春曉

  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.
  
  耶穌被圣靈引到曠野,接受魔鬼的試探。
  他齋戒四十個晝夜,最后感到非常饑餓。撒旦見狀,就走上前對他說:“如果你真是上帝之子,讓這些石頭變成面包。”耶穌回答說:“經書上說,‘人不是光靠食物而活,人要靠上帝講的每句話活著。’”
  魔鬼把他帶到一座高山之巔,把世上所有繁榮昌盛的國家指給他看,并說:“如果你肯拜服在地,向我表示敬意,我就把這一切全都賜給你。”但耶穌卻說:“走開,撒旦!經書上講‘你要敬拜你的天主上帝,而且只崇拜他。’”
  然后,魔鬼又把他帶到圣城,讓他站在圣殿頂上。“你若是圣子,”他說:“就跳下去,因為經書上講‘主會吩咐他的天使照看你,他們會用手臂托著你,以免你的腳撞到石頭上。’”
  耶穌回答說:“經書上還說‘不可試探你的天主上帝。’”
  當魔鬼結束所有的誘惑后,他暫時離開了耶穌。
  經受了魔鬼的誘惑后,耶穌就開始了他的傳教。他說:“懺悔吧,因為天國已經近了。”他四處宣講上帝的福音,救治人們的各種疾病。這樣,他的名聲傳遍了整個敘利亞。
