Chinese Bible in Classical Chinese online?


Mark Yong

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of any website(s) with the Chinese Bible in Classical Chinese 文言文? I know there are quite a number of online Bible websites, but they are all in Modern Standard Chinese.

Basically for starters, I am trying to render the following verse from Mark 10:8-9:

"...and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate."

"既然如此、夫妻不再是兩個人、乃是一體的了。 所以 神配合的、人不可分開。"

into Classical Chinese.

The best I could do is:

"既然如此、夫妻不再二人也、乃一體矣。 則神所配合者、人不可分。"

Correct typo. It should be 耦, not 藕.

You are looking for 马可福音(和合本), I guess.

Have a look at this, please ->

By John C. H. Wu, 1948 (Catholic)

二人成為一體。是則不復為二,乃為一體矣。夫天主之所合,人孰得而離之?

By Archimandrite Guri Karpov, 1864 (Orthodox)

膠漆其妻、二人成為一體、至不復為二、而成一體、可知天主偶者、人不可分之、

There are online Catholic/Orthodox New Testament & Psalms:

8 二人成為一體’,可見他們不再是兩個人,而是一體了。 9 上帝既然使他們同負一軛,人就不可分開。”

It's not. 'Traditional' refers to unsimplified Chinese characters (as opposed to simplified characters used on the Chinese mainland). It doesn't refer to the actual grammar and vocabulary of the language (whereas 'classical' does).

(Also, this thread is really old and didn't really need further answers.)
