    Jonah 4:9-11 AMP
    [9] Then God said to Jonah, "Do you have a good reason to be angry about [the loss of] the plant?" And he said, "I have a [very] good reason to be angry, angry enough to die!" [10] Then the LORD said, "You had compassion on the plant for which you did not work and which you did not cause to grow, which came up overnight and perished overnight. [11] Should I not have compassion on Nineveh, the great city in which there are more than 120,000 [innocent] persons, who do not know the difference between their right and left hand [and are not yet accountable for sin], as well as many [blameless] animals?"
    約拿書 4章9-11節 (NCV)
    神問約拿:“你因這棵蓖麻這樣發怒,對不對呢?”約拿說:“我發怒以至於死都是對的。” 耶和華說:“這棵蓖麻,不是你栽種的,也不是你使它長大的,一夜長成,一夜死去,你尚且愛惜它,何況這尼尼微大城,其中不曉得分辨左右手的有十二萬多人,並且有許多牲畜,我怎能不愛惜呢?”

Do not dwindle away! [7] And work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, for its welfare will determine your welfare."
    耶利米書29章5-7節 (CUV)
    你們要蓋造房屋住在其中、栽種田園吃其中所產的。娶妻生兒女、為你們的兒子娶妻、使你們的女兒嫁人、生兒養女、在那裏生養眾多、不至減少。我所使你們被擄到的那城、你們要為那城求平安、為那城禱告耶和華、因為那城得平安、你們也隨著得平安。

    THE SCHOOL OF COURAGE
    教懂人勇氣的學校

    (Acts 4:8-13) Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: "Rulers and elders of the people! (9) If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a man who was lame and are being asked how he was healed, (10) then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. (11) Jesus is"'the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone.' (12) Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved." (13) When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, theywere astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.
    使徒行傳4:8-13 CNV8 “當時彼得被聖靈充滿,對他們說: 民眾的領袖和長老啊!9 我們今天受審,如果是為了在那殘疾人身上所行的善事,就是這個人怎麼會好的,10 那麼,你們各位和以色列全民都應當知道,站在你們面前這人好了,是因拿撒勒人耶穌基督的名。這位耶穌基督,你們把他釘死在十字架上, 神卻使他從死人中復活。11 ‘’ 這耶穌是你們 建築工人所棄的石頭, 成了房角的主要石頭。12 除了他” 以外,別無拯救,因為在天下人間,沒有賜下別的名,我們可以靠著得救。13 他們看見彼得和約翰的膽量,也知道這兩個人是沒有學問的平民,就很驚奇;同時認出他們是跟耶穌一夥的,

(19) But Peter and John replied, "Which is right in God's eyes: to listen to you, or to him? You be the judges! (20) As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.
    "使徒行傳4:18-20 CNV18 於是叫了他們來,嚴禁他們再奉耶穌的名講論教導。19 “彼得和約翰回答: 聽從你們過於聽從神,在神面前對不對,你們自己說吧!20 ”我們看見的聽見的,不能不說!
