【每日福音 | Daily Gospel】五旬節後第七週星期二(2014-07-22/ 07-09)

正教會今日讀經:
格前/ 林前6:20-7:12
  你們原是用高價買來的,所以務要用你們的身體光榮天主。
  論到你們信上所寫的事,我認為男人不親近女人倒好。可是,為了避免淫亂,男人當各有自己的妻子,女人當各有自己的丈夫。丈夫對妻子該盡他應盡的義務,妻子對丈夫也是如此。妻子對自己的身體沒有主權,而是丈夫有;同樣,丈夫對自己的身體也沒有主權,而是妻子有。你們切不要彼此虧負,除非兩相情願,暫時分房,為專務祈禱;但事後仍要歸到一處,免得撒殫因你們不能節制,而誘惑你們。我說這話,原是出於寬容,並不是出於命令。我本來願意眾人都如同我一樣,可是,每人都有他各自得自天主的恩寵:有人這樣,有人那樣。我對那些尚未結婚的人,特別對寡婦說:如果她們能止於現狀,像我一樣,為她們倒好。但若她們節制不住,就讓她們婚嫁,因為與其慾火中燒,倒不如結婚為妙。至於那些已經結婚的,我命令──其實不是我,而是主命令:妻子不可離開丈夫;若是離開了,就應該持身不嫁,或是仍與丈夫和好;丈夫也不可離棄妻子。
  對其餘的人,是我說,而不是主說:倘若某弟兄有不信主的妻子,妻子也同意與他同居,就不應該離棄她。

  For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body.
  Now in regard to the matters about which you wrote: “It is a good thing for a man not to touch a woman,” but because of cases of immorality every man should have his own wife, and every woman her own husband. The husband should fulfill his duty toward his wife, and likewise the wife toward her husband. A wife does not have authority over her own body, but rather her husband, and similarly a husband does not have authority over his own body, but rather his wife. Do not deprive each other, except perhaps by mutual consent for a time, to be free for prayer, but then return to one another, so that Satan may not tempt you through your lack of self-control. This I say by way of concession, however, not as a command. Indeed, I wish everyone to be as I am, but each has a particular gift from God, one of one kind and one of another. Now to the unmarried and to widows, I say: it is a good thing for them to remain as they are, as I do, but if they cannot exercise self-control they should marry, for it is better to marry than to be on fire. To the married, however, I give this instruction (not I, but the Lord): a wife should not separate from her husband – and if she does separate she must either remain single or become reconciled to her husband – and a husband should not divorce his wife.
  To the rest I say (not the Lord): if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she is willing to go on living with him, he should not divorce her;

瑪/ 太14:1-13
  那時,分封侯黑落德聽到耶穌的名聲,就對他的臣僕說:「這是洗者若翰,他由死者中復活了,為此,這些奇能纔在他身上運行。」原來,黑落德為了他兄弟裴理伯的妻子黑落狄亞的原故,逮捕了若翰,把他囚在監裏,因為若翰曾給他說:「你不可佔有這個女人!」黑落德本有意殺他,但害怕群眾,因為他們都以若翰為先知。到了黑落德的生日,黑落狄亞的女兒,在席間跳舞,中悅了黑落德;為此,黑落德發誓許下,她無論求什麼,都要給她。她受了她母親的唆使後,就說:「請就地把若翰的頭放在盤子裏給我!」王十分憂鬱,但為了誓言和同席的人,就下令給她。遂差人在監裏斬了若翰的頭,把頭放在盤子裏拿來,給了女孩;女孩便拿去給了她母親。若翰的門徒前來,領了屍身,埋藏了,然後去報告給耶穌。 
  耶穌一聽說這消息,就從那裏上船,私下退到荒野地方;群眾聽說了,就從各城裏步行跟了他去。

  At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the reputation of Jesus and said to his servants, “This man is John the Baptist. He has been raised from the dead; that is why mighty powers are at work in him.” Now Herod had arrested John, bound (him), and put him in prison on account of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip, for John had said to him, “It is not lawful for you to have her.” Although he wanted to kill him, he feared the people, for they regarded him as a prophet. But at a birthday celebration for Herod, the daughter of Herodias performed a dance before the guests and delighted Herod so much that he swore to give her whatever she might ask for. Prompted by her mother, she said, “Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist.” The king was distressed, but because of his oaths and the guests who were present, he ordered that it be given, and he had John beheaded in the prison. His head was brought in on a platter and given to the girl, who took it to her mother. His disciples came and took away the corpse and buried him; and they went and told Jesus.
  When Jesus heard of it, he withdrew in a boat to a deserted place by himself. The crowds heard of this and followed him on foot from their towns.
