were a child. These Scriptures are able to make
you wise. And that wisdom leads to salvation
through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given
by God. And all Scripture is useful for teaching and
for showing people what is wrong in their lives. It is
useful for correcting faults and teaching the right
way to live. Using the Scriptures, those who serve
God will be prepared and will have everything they
need to do every good work. (II Timothy 3:15-17)
提后:3:15-17

并且知道你是从小明白圣经.这圣经能使你因

can grow up and be saved. You have already tasted
the goodness of the Lord. “所以你们既除去一切的

<11> Then Jesus said, “There was a man who had two sons.
<12> The younger son said to his father, ‘Give me now the part
of your property that I am supposed to receive someday.’ So the
father divided his wealth between his two sons.
<13> “A few days later the younger son gathered up all that he
had and left. He traveled far away to another country, and there
he wasted his money living like a fool. <14> After he spent
everything he had, there was a terrible famine throughout the
country. He was hungry and needed money. <15> So he went
and got a job with one of the people who lived there. The man
sent him into the fields to feed pigs. <16> He was so hungry that
he wanted to eat the food that the pigs were eating. But no one
gave him anything.

<15> Then
Jesus said to them, “Be careful and guard

many things they own.”<16> Then Jesus used this story:
“There was a rich man who had some land. His land
grew a very good crop of food. <17> He thought to
himself, ‘What will I do? I have no place to keep all my
crops.’ <18> “Then he said, ‘I know what I will do. I will
tear down my barns and build bigger barns! I will put all
my wheat and good things together in my new barns.
<19> Then I can say to myself, I have many good things
stored. I have saved enough for many years. Rest, eat,
drink, and enjoy life!’ <20> “But God said to that man,
‘Foolish man! Tonight you will die. So what about the
things you prepared for yourself? Who will get those
things now?’ <21> “This is how it will be for anyone who
saves things only for himself. To God that person is not
rich.”

里思想说、我的出产没有地方收藏、怎么办呢。
12:18又说、我要这么办.要把我的仓房拆了、另盖
更大的.在那里好收藏我一切的粮食和财物。 12:19

There was no rain, so after a while the stream became dry. ...
So Elijah went to Zarephath. ... Elijah said to her, “Would you
bring me a small cup water to drink?” As she was going to get
the water, Elijah said, “Bring me a piece of bread too, please.”
The woman answered, “I promise you, before the Lord your God,
that I have nothing but a handful of flour in a jar and a little bit of
olive oil in a jug. I came here to gather a few pieces of wood for a
fire to cook our last meal. My son and I will eat it and then die
from hunger.” Elijah said to the woman, “Don’t worry. Go home
and cook your food as you said. But first make a small piece
of bread from the flour that you have and bring it to me, and
then cook some for yourself and your son. The Lord, the God of
Israel, says, ‘That jar of flour will never be empty and the jug will
always have oil in it. This will continue until the day the Lord
sends rain to the land.’” So the woman went home and did what
Elijah told her to do. And Elijah, the woman, and her son had
enough food for a long time.The jar of flour and the jug of oil
were never empty. This happened just as the Lord said through
Elijah.

去住在那里.我已吩咐那里的一个寡妇供养你。以利亚就
起身往撒勒法去、到了城门、见有一个寡妇在那里捡柴.
以利亚呼叫他、说、求你用器皿取点水来给我喝。他去取
水的时候、以利亚又呼叫他、说、也求你拿点饼来给我。
他说、我指着永生耶和华你的 神起誓、我没有饼、坛内
只有一把面、瓶里只有一点油.我现在找两根柴、回家要
为我和我儿子作饼.我们吃了、死就死吧。以利亚对他说、
不要惧怕.可以照你所说的去作吧.只要先为我作一个小
饼、拿来给我、然后为你和你的儿子作饼。 因为耶和华
以色列的 神如此说、坛内的面必不减少、瓶里的油必不
缺短、直到耶和华使雨降在地上的日子。 妇人就照以利
亚的话去行.他和他家中的人、并以利亚、吃了许多日子。
坛内的面果不减少、瓶里的油也不缺短、正如耶和华借以
利亚所说的话。

<24> By this time the boat was already a long way from shore.
Since the wind was blowing against it, the boat was having
trouble because of the waves. <25> Between three and six
o’clock in the morning, Jesus’ followers were still in the boat.
Jesus came to them. He was walking on the water. <26> When
they saw him walking on the water, it scared them. “It’s a ghost!”
they said, screaming in fear.<27> But Jesus quickly spoke to
them. He said, “Don’t worry! It’s me! Don’t be afraid.” <28> Peter
said, “Lord, if that is really you, tell me to come to you on the
water.” <29> Jesus said, “Come, Peter.” Then Peter left the boat
and walked on the water to Jesus. <30> But while Peter was
walking on the water, he saw the wind and the waves. He was
afraid and began sinking into the water. He shouted, “Lord, save
me!” <31> Then Jesus caught Peter with his hand. He said,
“Your faith is small. Why did you doubt?” <32> After Peter and
Jesus were in the boat, the wind stopped. <33> Then the
followers in the boat worshiped Jesus and said, “You really are

<43> “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love
your neighbor, and hate your enemy.’ <44> But I
tell you, love your enemies. Pray for those who
treat you badly. <45> If you do this, you will be
children who are truly like your Father in heaven.
He lets the sun rise for all people, whether they
are good or bad. He sends rain to those who do
right and to those who do wrong. <46> If you
love only those who love you, why should you
get a reward for that? Even the tax collectors do
that. <47> And if you are nice only to your
friends, you are no better than anyone else.
Even the people who don’t know God are nice to
their friends. <48> What I am saying is that you
must be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is
perfect.
练习:马太福音5:43-48

5:43你们听见有话说、『当爱你的邻舍、恨你
的仇敌。』 5:44只是我告诉你们、要爱你们
的仇敌.为那逼迫你们的祷告。 5:45这样、
就可以作你们天父的儿子.因为他叫日头照好
人、也照歹人、降雨给义人、也给不义的人。
5:46你们若单爱那爱你们的人.有甚么赏赐
呢.就是税吏不也是这样行么。 5:47你们若
单请你弟兄的安、比人有甚么长处呢.就是外
邦人不也是这样行么。 5:48所以你们要完全、
像你们的天父完全一样。

Then the Spirit led Jesus into the desert. He
was taken there to be tempted by the devil.
Jesus ate nothing for 40 days and nights.
After this, he was very hungry. The devil
came to tempt him and said, “If you are the
Son of God, tell these rocks to become
bread.” Jesus answered him, “The
Scriptures say, ‘It is not just bread that keeps
people alive. Their lives depend on what God
says.’”

靠食物、乃是靠 神口里所出的一切话。』。”
