創造眾生的那位成為人(奧古斯丁)

創造眾生的那位成為人
創造星的那位安歇母懷
生命之糧那位將要飢餓
生命活泉那位將要乾渴
生命之光那位將需睡眠
生命之道那位將會疲憊
真理本體將被控假見證
偉大的教師將遭受鞭打
根基將要被掛在木頭上
大能者將成為無力之輩
醫治者將要被刺透致死
生命本體將要進入死亡

奧古斯丁

Man’s maker was made man,
that He, Ruler of the stars, might nurse at His mother’s breast;
that the Bread might hunger,
the Fountain thirst,
the Light sleep,
the Way be tired on its journey;
that the Truth might be accused of false witness,
the Teacher be beaten with whips,
the Foundation be suspended on wood;
that Strength might grow weak;
that the Healer might be wounded;
that Life might die.

– Augustine
