The Confessions of St. Augustine《懺悔錄》(希波的奧古斯丁著)


"I became evil for no reason. I had no motive for my wickedness except wickedness itself. It was foul, and I loved it. I loved the self-destruction, I loved my fall, not the object for which I had fallen but my fall itself. My depraved soul leaped down from your firmament to ruin. I was seeking not to gain anything by shameful means, but shame for its own sake."
--from "Confessions" (c. 397) by St Augustine

Confessions (LatinConfessiones) is the name of an autobiographical work, consisting of 13 books, by St. Augustine of Hippo, written in Latin between AD 397 and AD 398. Modern English translations of it are sometimes published under the title The Confessions of St. Augustine in order to distinguish the book from other books with similar titles. Its original title was "Confessions in Thirteen Books," and it was composed to be read out loud with each book being a complete unit.[1]

這本書台中的光啟社也有翻譯。不知道差別。

有的地方不好懂,譬如說講他母親被女僕笑:為"酒鬼"後,戒酒,之後作者的沉思......9章8節......
另外是聖經的翻譯(本書可能5%是引文),譬如說,13:31


除了人內裏的心神外,有誰能知道那人的事呢?同樣,除了天主聖神外,誰也不能明瞭天主的事。我們所領受的,不是這世界的精神,而是出於天主的聖神,為使我們能明瞭天主所賜與我們的一切。 (思高本)

我被聖神的翻譯所困惑。現在的簡單國際標準本的比較容易......

1 Corinthians 2:11-12

New International Version (NIV)
11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.
