聖瑪竇福音 18:21-35

那時候,伯多祿前來,對耶穌說:「主啊!如果我的弟兄得罪了我,我該寬恕他多少次?直到七次嗎?」耶穌對他說:「我不是對你說:直到七次,而是到七十個七次。

「為此,天國好比一個君王,要同他的僕人算賬。他開始算賬的時候,有人帶來了一個欠他一萬『塔冷通』的僕人,因那僕人沒有錢可償還,主人就下令,要他把自己和妻子兒女,以及他所有的一切,都變賣來還債。那僕人就俯伏在地,叩拜他主人,說:主啊!寬容我吧!一切我都要還給你。那僕人的主人,就動心,把他釋放了,並且也寬免了他的債。

「但那僕人正出去時,遇見了一個欠他一百『德納』的同伴,那僕人就抓住他,扼住他的喉嚨,說:還清你所欠的債!他的同伴就俯伏在地,哀求他說:寬容我吧!我必還給你。可是那僕人不願意,且把他的同伴關在監裡,直到他還清了所欠的債。

「那僕人的其他同伴,見到所發生的事,非常悲憤,就去把所發生的一切,告訴了主人。於是,主人把那僕人叫來,對他說:惡僕!因為你哀求了我,我就寬免了你的一切債項;難道你不該憐憫你的同伴,如同我憐憫了你一樣嗎?

「於是,主人大怒,把他交給刑役,直到他還清所欠的一切。

「如果你們各人,不從心裡寬恕自己的弟兄,我的天父,也要這樣對待你們。」

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Matthew (18:21-35)

Peter approached Jesus and asked him, “Lord, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive? As many as seven times?” Jesus answered, “I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times. That is why the kingdom of heaven may be likened to a king who decided to settle accounts with his servants. When he began the accounting, a debtor was brought before him who owed him a huge amount. Since he had no way of paying it back, his master ordered him to be sold, along with his wife, his children, and all his property, in payment of the debt. At that, the servant fell down, did him homage, and said, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back in full.’ Moved with compassion the master of that servant let him go and forgave him the loan. When that servant had left, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a much smaller amount. He seized him and started to choke him, demanding, ‘Pay back what you owe.’ Falling to his knees, his fellow servant begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.’ But he refused. Instead, he had the fellow servant put in prison until he paid back the debt. Now when his fellow servants saw what had happened, they were deeply disturbed, and went to their master and reported the whole affair. His master summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you your entire debt because you begged me to. Should you not have had pity on your fellow servant, as I had pity on you?’ Then in anger his master handed him over to the torturers until he should pay back the whole debt. So will my heavenly Father do to you, unless each of you forgives your brother from your heart.”
