(每日读经8/9) 以弗所书 - Ephesians 4.17–5.2

4:17 所以我这样说,且在主里见证,你们行事为人,不要再像外邦人在他们心思的虚妄里行事为人,

This therefore I say and testify in the Lord, that you no longer walk as the Gentiles also walk in the vanity of their mind,

4:18 他们在悟性上既然昏暗,就因着那在他们里面的无知,因着他们心里的刚硬,与神的生命隔绝了;

Being darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance which is in them, because of the hardness of their heart;

4:19 他们感觉既然丧尽,就任凭自己放荡,以致贪行种种的污秽。

Who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lasciviousness to work all uncleanness in greediness.

4:20 但你们并不是这样学了基督;

But you did not so learn Christ,

4:21 如果你们真是听过祂,并在祂里面,照着那在耶稣身上是实际者,受过教导,

If indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him as the reality is in Jesus,

4:22 在从前的生活样式上,脱去了旧人,这旧人是照着那迷惑的情欲败坏的;

That you put off, as regards your former manner of life, the old man, which is being corrupted according to the lusts of the deceit,

4:23 而在你们心思的灵里得以更新,

And that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind,

4:24 并且穿上了新人,这新人是照着神,在那实际的义和圣中所创造的。

And put on the new man, which was created according to God in righteousness and holiness of the reality.

4:25 所以你们既已脱去谎言,各人就要与邻舍说实话,因为我们是互相为肢体。

Therefore having put off the lie, speak truth each one with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.

4:26 生气却不要犯罪,不可含怒到日落,

Be angry, yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your indignation,

4:27 也不可给魔鬼留地步。

Neither give place to the devil.

4:28 偷窃的不要再偷,倒要劳力,亲手作正经事,好有所分给需要的人。

He who steals should steal no more, but rather should labor, working with his own hands in that which is respectable, that he may have something to share with him who has need.

4:29 败坏的话一句都不可出口,只要按需要说建造人的好话,好将恩典供给听见的人。

Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but only that which is good for building up, according to the need, that it may give grace to those who hear.

4:30 并且不要叫神的圣灵忧愁,你们原是在祂里面受了印记,直到得赎的日子。

And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, in whom you were sealed unto the day of redemption.

4:31 一切苦毒、恼恨、忿怒、喧嚷、毁谤,同一切的恶毒,都要从你们中间除掉。

Let all bitterness and anger and wrath and clamor and evil speaking be removed from you, with all malice.

4:32 你们要以恩慈相待,心存慈怜,彼此饶恕,正如神在基督里饶恕了你们一样。

And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ also forgave you.

5:1 所以你们要效法神,好像蒙爱的儿女一样;

Be therefore imitators of God, as beloved children;

5:2 也要在爱里行事为人,正如基督爱我们,为我们舍了自己,作供物和祭物献与神,成为馨香之气。

And walk in love, even as Christ also loved us and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling savor.
