恪守本份

路加福音 20:21~25

21奸細就問耶穌說:「夫子,我們曉得你所講所傳都是正道,也不取人的外貌,乃是誠誠實實傳神的道。22我們納稅給該撒,可以不可以?」23耶穌看出他們的詭詐,就對他們說:24「拿一個銀錢來給我看。這像和這號是誰的?」他們說:「是該撒的。」25耶穌說:「這樣,該撒的物當歸給該撒,神的物當歸給神。」

Luke 20:21-25

(KJV)  21And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the person of any, but teachest the way of God truly: 22Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no?  23But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me? 24Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Caesar’s. 25And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar’s, and unto God the things which be God’s.

(NIV)  21So the spies questioned him: “Teacher, we know that you speak and teach what is right, and that you do not show partiality but teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. 22Is it right for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”  23He saw through their duplicity and said to them, 24“Show me a denarius. Whose image and inscription are on it?” “Caesar’s,” they replied. 25He said to them, “Then give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.”
