14那时 ,约翰 的门徒 来 见耶稣 ,说 :我们 和 法利赛人 常常 禁食 ,你的 门徒 倒 不 禁食 ,这是为甚么 呢?




14 ¶ Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?
14 Verse 14. Thy disciples fast not?] Probably meaning that they

did not fast so frequently as the others did, or for the same

purposes, which is very likely, for the Pharisees had many

superstitious fasts. They fasted in order to have lucky dreams,

to obtain the interpretation of a dream, or to avert the evil

import of a dream. They also fasted often, in order to obtain the

things they wished for. The tract, Taanith is full of these

fasts, and of the wonders performed thus by the Jewish doctors.
