4耶稣回答:“经上记着:‘人活着,不是单靠食物,更要靠 神口里所出的一切话。’”
4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
4 Verse 4. But by (or, upon, επι) every word] ρημα, in

Greek, answers to dabar in Hebrew, which means not only a word

spoken, but also thing, purpose, appointment, &c. Our Lord's

meaning seems to be this: God purposes the welfare of his

creatures-all his appointments are calculated to promote this end.

Some of them may appear to man to have a contrary tendency; but

even fasting itself, when used in consequence of a Divine

injunction, becomes a mean of supporting that life which it seems

naturally calculated to impair or destroy.
