路加福音5:17-26
Full! The house was full!Jesus was in the house,teaching and healing, andeveryone wanted to seeHim.Some men had a friend whocould not walk. Theybelieved that Jesus couldheal him, so they carriedhim to the house on a mat.
真挤啊!屋子里怎么这么多人!原来耶稣正在教导众人,还医治了许多病人,所以大家都想来见见他。有几个人也想来见耶稣。他们的朋友是个瘫子,不能走路。他们相信耶稣能治好他,就用褥子抬着他到耶稣那里去。
Because the house was sofull, they couldn't get in. Sothey carried their friend upthe steps to the flat roofand started tearing up thtiles!They opened a hole in theroof. Everyone in the houselooked up, amazed! Thenthey lowered their friendinto the middle of thecrowd.
但是屋子里人太多了,他们进不去。有办法了!他们抬着朋友,沿着阶梯上了屋顶,然后开始拆屋顶的瓦片!他们把屋顶拆了一个大洞。屋里的人都吃惊地往上看。接着他们把朋友从屋顶上慢慢缒了下去。
They thought Jesus wouldheal their friend. Instead,Jesus saidto him, "Yoursins are forgiven." Thereligious leaders were veryunhappy. "Only God canforgive sins," theygrumbled.
以为耶稣会马上医治他们的朋友。但是耶稣却对瘫子说:你的罪被赦免了。在场的宗教领袖听了这话,非常生气。他们说:只有上帝才有权柄赦免人的罪。
"What's easier?" askedJesus. "To forgive a man'ssins or make him walk? Toshow you that I have God'spower to forgive sins, I willheal his legs."
耶稣说:赦免一个人的罪和使他能够行走,哪一样更容易呢?为了让你们知道我有赦罪的权柄,现在,我就要医治他的腿。”
"Pick up your mat and walkhome," said Jesus to theman. And he did! His friendscheered, and so dideveryone else. Now thehouse was filled...withpraise.
耶稣对瘫子说:起来,拿起你的褥子,回家去吧。那人立刻起来,拿着他的褥子回家去了!他的朋友们和在场的所有人都欢呼起来,屋里充满了对上帝的赞美。
