【每日福音 | Daily Gospel】五旬節後第一週星期四, Afterfeast of Pentecost(2014-06-12/ 05-30)

正教會今日讀經:
羅1:28-2:9
  他們既不肯認真地認識天主,天主也就任憑他們陷於邪惡的心思,去行不正當的事,充滿了各種不義、毒惡、貪婪、兇殘,滿懷嫉妒、謀殺、鬥爭、欺詐、乖戾;任憑他們作讒謗的、詆毀的、恨天主的、悔辱人的、高傲的、自誇的、挑剔惡事的、忤逆父母的、冥頑的、背約的、無情的、不慈的人。他們雖然明知天主正義的規例是:凡作這樣事的人,應受死刑;但他們不僅自己作這些事,而且還贊同作這些事的人。
  所以,人啊!你不論是誰,你判斷人,必無可推諉,因為你判斷別人,就是定你自己的罪,因為你這判斷人的,正作著同樣的事。我們知道:對於作這樣事的人,天主必照真情判斷。人啊!你判斷作這樣事的人,你自己卻作同樣的事,你以為你能逃脫天主的審判嗎?難道你不知道:天主的慈愛是願引你悔改,而你竟輕視祂豐富的慈愛、寬容與忍耐嗎?你固執而不願悔改,只是為自己積蓄,在天主忿怒和顯示祂正義審判的那一天,向你所發的忿怒。到那一天,『祂要照每人的行為予以報應』:凡恆心行善,尋求真榮、尊貴和不朽的人,賜以永生;凡固執於惡,不順從真理,反順從不義的人,執以忿怒和憤恨。患難和困苦必加於一切作惡的人,先是猶太人,後是希臘人。

  And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God handed them over to their undiscerning mind to do what is improper. They are filled with every form of wickedness, evil, greed, and malice; full of envy, murder, rivalry, treachery, and spite. They are gossips and scandalmongers and they hate God. They are insolent, haughty, boastful, ingenious in their wickedness, and rebellious toward their parents. They are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know the just decree of God that all who practice such things deserve death, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.
  Therefore, you are without excuse, every one of you who passes judgment. For by the standard by which you judge another you condemn yourself, since you, the judge, do the very same things. We know that the judgment of God on those who do such things is true. Do you suppose, then, you who judge those who engage in such things and yet do them yourself, that you will escape the judgment of God? Or do you hold his priceless kindness, forbearance, and patience in low esteem, unaware that the kindness of God would lead you to repentance? By your stubbornness and impenitent heart, you are storing up wrath for yourself for the day of wrath and revelation of the just judgment of God, who will repay everyone according to his works: eternal life to those who seek glory, honor, and immortality through perseverance in good works, but wrath and fury to those who selfishly disobey the truth and obey wickedness. Yes, affliction and distress will come upon every human being who does evil, Jew first and then Greek.

瑪/ 太5:27-32
  「你們一向聽說過:『不可姦淫!』我卻對你們說:凡注視婦女,有意貪戀她的,他已在心裏姦淫了她。若是你的右眼使你跌倒,剜出它來,從你身上扔掉,因為喪失你一個肢體,比你全身投入地獄裏,為你更好;若你的右手使你跌倒,砍下它來,從你身上扔掉,因為喪失你一個肢體,比你全身投入地獄裏,為你更好。
  「又說過『誰若休妻,就該給她休書。』我卻對你們說:除了姘居外,凡休自己的妻子的,便是叫她受姦污;並且誰若娶被休的婦人,就是犯姦淫。」

  ”You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you, everyone who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one of your members than to have your whole body thrown into Gehenna. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one of your members than to have your whole body go into Gehenna.
  ”It was also said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife must give her a bill of divorce.’ But I say to you, whoever divorces his wife (unless the marriage is unlawful) causes her to commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.”
