book 21
1 这些事以后,耶稣在提比哩亚海边,又向门徒显现。他怎样显现记在下面。
Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Tiberias. It happened this way:
2 有西门彼得,和称为低土马的多马,并加利利的迦拿人拿但业,还有西庇太的两个儿子,又有两个门徒,都在一处。
Simon Peter, Thomas (called Didymus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together.
3 西门彼得对他们说,我打鱼去。他们说,我们也和你同去。他们就出去,上了船,那一夜并没有打着什么。
"I'm going out to fish," Simon Peter told them, and they said, "We'll go with you." So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.
4 天将亮的时候,耶稣站在岸上。门徒却不知道是耶稣。
Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.
5 耶稣就对他们说,小子,你们有吃的没有。他们回答说,没有。
He called out to them, "Friends, haven't you any fish?" "No," they answered.
6 耶稣说,你们把网撒在船的右边,就必得着。他们便撒下网去,竟拉不上来了,因为鱼甚多。
He said, "Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some." When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.
7 耶稣所爱的那门徒对彼得说,是主。那时西门彼得赤着身子,一听见是主,就束上一件外衣,跳在海里。
Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, "It is the Lord," he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water.
8 其余的门徒(离岸不远,约有二百肘,(古时以肘为尺,一肘约有今时尺半)就在小船上把那网鱼拉过来。
The other disciples followed in the boat, towing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hundred yards.
9 他们上了岸,就看见那里有炭火,上面有鱼,又有饼。
When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread.
10 耶稣对他们说,把刚才打的鱼,拿几条来。
Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish you have just caught."
11 西门彼得就去,(或作上船)把网拉到岸上,那网满了大鱼,共一百五十三条。鱼虽这样多,网却没有破。
Simon Peter climbed aboard and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn.
12 耶稣说,你们来吃早饭。门徒中没有一个敢问他,你是谁?因为知道是主。
Jesus said to them, "Come and have breakfast." None of the disciples dared ask him, "Who are you?" They knew it was the Lord.
13 耶稣就来拿饼和鱼给他们。
Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish.
14 耶稣从死里复活以后,向门徒显现,这是第三次。
This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.
15 他们吃完了早饭,耶稣对西门彼得说,约翰的儿子西门,(约翰马太十六章十七节称约拿)你爱我比这些更深吗?彼得说,主阿,是的。你知道我爱你。耶稣对他说,你喂养我的小羊。
When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon son of John, do you truly love me more than these?" "Yes, Lord," he said, "you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Feed my lambs."
16 耶稣第二次又对他说,约翰的儿子西门,你爱我吗?彼得说,主阿,是的。你知道我爱你。耶稣说,你牧养我的羊。
Again Jesus said, "Simon son of John, do you truly love me?" He answered, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Take care of my sheep."
17 第三次对他说,约翰的儿子西门,你爱我吗?彼得因为耶稣第三次对他说,你爱我吗?就忧愁,对耶稣说,主阿,你是无所不知的,你知道我爱你。耶稣说,你喂养我的羊。
The third time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, "Do you love me?" He said, "Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Feed my sheep.
18 我实实在在地告诉你,你年少的时候,自己束上带子,随意往来,但年老的时候,你要伸出手来,别人要把你束上,带你到不愿意去的地方。
I tell you the truth, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go."
19 耶稣说这话,是指着彼得要怎样死荣耀神。说了这话,就对他说,你跟从我吧。
Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, "Follow me!"
20 彼得转过来,看见耶稣所爱的那门徒跟着,就是在晚饭的时候,靠着耶稣胸膛,说,主阿,卖你的是谁?的那门徒。
Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, "Lord, who is going to betray you?")
21 彼得看见他,就问耶稣说,主阿,这人将来如何?
When Peter saw him, he asked, "Lord, what about him?"
22 耶稣对他说,我若要他等到我来的时候,与你何干?你跟从我吧。
Jesus answered, "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me."
23 于是这话传在弟兄中间,说那门徒不死。其实耶稣不是说他不死。乃是说我若要他等到我来的时候,与你何干?
Because of this, the rumor spread among the brothers that this disciple would not die. But Jesus did not say that he would not die; he only said, "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?"
24 为这些事作见证,并且记载这些事的,就是这门徒。我们也知道他的见证是真的。
This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true.
25 耶稣所行的事,还有许多,若是一一的都写出来,我想所写的书,就是世界也容不下了。
Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.
