٤ : ٦، ٨

*The light of thy countenance, O Lord, has been manifested towards us. Thou hast put gladness into my heart: for thou, Lord, only hast caused me to dwell securely. Alleluia.

قَدْ ارْتَسَمَ عَلَيْنَا نُورُ وَجْهِكَ يَارَبُّ. أَعْطيتَ سُرُوراً لِقَلْبِي؛ لأنكَ أنْتَ وَحْدَكَ يَارَبُّ، أَسْكَنْتَنِي عَلَى الرَّجَاءِ. هَلِّلُويَا.

8:28-42

٨ : ٢٨ − ٤٢

*Jesus therefore said to them: When you shall have lifted up the Son of man, then shall you know, that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself, but as the Father hath taught me, these things I speak: And he that sent me, is with me, and he hath not left me alone: for I do always the things that please him. When he spoke these things, many believed in him. Then Jesus said to those Jews, who believed him: If you continue in my word, you shall be my disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. They answered him: We are the seed of Abraham, and we have never been slaves to any man: how sayest thou: you shall be free? Jesus answered them: Amen, amen I say unto you: that whosoever committeth sin, is the servant of sin. Now the servant abideth not in the house for ever; but the son abideth for ever. If therefore the son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed. I know that you are the children of Abraham: but you seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and you do the things that you have seen with your father. They answered, and said to him: Abraham is our father. Jesus saith to them: If you be the children of Abraham, do the works of Abraham. But now you seek to kill me, a man who have spoken the truth to you, which I have heard of God. This Abraham did not. You do the works of your father. They said therefore to him: We are not born of fornication: we have one Father, even God. Jesus therefore said to them: If God were your Father, you would indeed love me. For from God I proceeded, and came; for I came not of myself, but he sent me: Glory be to God forever.

قَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: "مَتَى رَفَعْتُمُ ابْنَ الإنْسَانِ، فَحِينَئذٍ تَعْلَمُونَ أَني أَنا هُوَ، وَلَسْتُ أَفْعَلُ شَيْئاً مِنْ ذَاتِي وَحْدِي، بَلْ كَمَا عَلَّمَنِي أبِي فبهذا أتكلَّمُ. والَّذِي أَرْسَلَنِي فَهُوَ مَعِي، وَلَمْ يَتْرُكْنِي وَحْدِي؛ لأني أَصْنَعُ في كُلِّ حِينٍ مَا يُرْضِيهِ". وَإذْ هُوَ يَقُولُ هذَا آمَنَ بِهِ كَثِيرُونَ. وَكَانَ يَسُوعُ يَقُولُ لِليَهُودِ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِهِ: "إنْ أنْتُمْ ثَبَتُّمْ في كَلامِي فَبِالْحَقِيقَةِ أنْتُمْ تَلاَمِيذِي، وَتَعْرِفُونَ الْحَقَّ، وَيَجْعلكُمْ الْحَقُّ أحْرَارَاً". فَأَجَابُوا وَقَالُوا لَهُ: "نَحنُ ذُرِّيةُ إبْرَاهِيمَ وَلَمْ نُسْتَعْبَدْ لأَحِدٍ قَطُّ! فَكَيفَ تَقُولُ أنْتَ: إنَّكُمْ تَصِيرُونَ أحْرَارَاً؟". أجَابَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: "الْحَقَّ الْحَقَّ أقُولُ لَكُمْ: إنَّ كُلَّ مَنْ يَعْمَلُ الْخَطِيَّةَ فَهُوَ عَبْدٌ لِلخَطِيَّةِ. وَالْعَبْدُ لَيْسَ بِثَابِتٍ في البَيْتِ إلَى الأبدِ، وَأمَّا الابْنُ فَهُوَ يَثْبُتُ إلَى الأبدِ. فَإنْ حَرَّرَكُمْ الابْنُ فَحَقَّاً تَصِيرُونَ أحْرَارَاً. أنا أَعْلَمُ أنَّكُمْ نَسْلُ إبْرَاهِيمَ. لكِنَّكُمْ طَلَبْتُمُونِي لِتَقْتُلُوني لأنَّ كَلاَمِي لَيْسَ بِثَابِتٍ فِيكُمْ. وَمَا رَأيْتُهُ عِنْدَ أبِي فَهذَا أتكَلَّم بِهِ، وَأمَّا أنْتُمْ فَمَا سَمِعْتُمُوهُ عِنْدَ أبِيكُمْ فَإيَّاه تَصْنَعُونَ". فَأجَابُوا وَقَالُوا لَهُ: "أبونَا هُوَ إبْرَاهِيمُ". قَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: "لَوْ كُنْتُمْ أنْتُمْ بَنِي إبْرَاهِيمَ، لَكُنْتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ أَعْمَالَ إبْرَاهِيمَ! وَأنْتُمْ الآنَ تَطْلُبُونَ أنْ تَقْتُلُوني، إنْسَانٌ قَائِلٌ لَكُمْ الْحَقَّ الَّذِي سَمِعتَهُ مِنَ اللَّهِ. هذَا لَمْ يَفْعَلْهُ إبْرَاهِيمُ. أنْتُمْ تَصْنَعُونَ أَعْمَالَ أَبِيكُمْ". قَالُوا لَهُ: "لَسْنَا نَحْنُ مَوْلُودِينَ مِنْ زِنى. وَلَنَا أبٌ وَاحِدٌ هُوَ اللَّهُ". قَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: "لَوْ كَانَ اللَّهُ أَبَاكُمْ لَكُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَنِي، لأني أنَا خَرَجْتُ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَأَتَيْتُ. فَإني لَمْ آتِ مِنْ ذَاتِي وَحْدِي، بَلْ هُوَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَنِي". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

*Thou hast given a token to them that fear thee, that they might flee from the bow. That thy beloved ones may be delivered; save with thy right hand. Alleluia.

12:26-36

١٢ : ٢٦ − ٣٦

*If any man minister to me, let him follow me; and where I am, there also shall my minister be. If any man minister to me, him will my Father honour. Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour. But for this cause I came unto this hour. Father, glorify thy name. A voice therefore came from heaven: I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. The multitude therefore that stood and heard, said that it thundered. Others said: An angel spoke to him. Jesus answered, and said: This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes. Now is the judgment of the world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all things to myself. (Now this he said, signifying what death he should die.) The multitude answered him: We have heard out of the law, that Christ abideth for ever; and how sayest thou: The Son of man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of man? Jesus therefore said to them: Yet a little while, the light is among you. Walk whilst you have the light, that the darkness overtake you not. And he that walketh in darkness, knoweth not whither he goeth. Whilst you have the light, believe in the light, that you may be the children of light. These things Jesus spoke; and he went away, and hid himself from them. Glory be to God forever.

مَنْ يَخْدِمْنِي فَلْيَتْبَعْنِي، وَحَيْثُ أَكُونُ أنَا هُنَاكَ يَكُونُ خَادِمِي مَعِي. وَمَنْ يَخْدِمُنِي يُكْرِمُهُ أبِي. الآنَ نَفْسِي مُضْطَرِبَةٌ. فَمَاذَا أَقُولُ: يَا أَبتِ نَجِّنِي مِنْ هذِهِ السَّاعَةِ؟ لَكِنْ مِنْ أجْلِ هذِهِ السَّاعَةِ أتَيْتُ. أيهَا الآبُ مَجِّدِ ابْنَكَ! فَخَرَجَ صَوتٌ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ قَائِلاً: "قَدْ مَجَّدْتُ، وَأُمَجِّدُ أيْضاً". فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ الْجَمْعُ الوَاقِفُ كَانَ يَقُولُ إنَّ مَا حَدَثَ هُوَ رَعْدٌ. وَكَانَ آخَرُونَ يَقُولُونَ إنَّ مَلاَكاً خَاطَبَهُ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ. فَأجَابَهُمْ يَسُوعُ وَقَالَ: "إنَّ هذَا الصَّوْتَ لَمْ يَكُنْ مِنْ أجْلِي بَلْ مِنْ أَجْلِكُمْ. الآنَ دَيْنُونَةُ هذَا العَالَمِ. الآنَ رَئِيسُ هذَا العَالَمِ يُطْرَحُ خَارِجَاً. وَأَنا أيْضاً مَتَى ارْتَفَعْتْ عَنِ الأرْضِ أَجْذِبْ إلَيَّ كُلَّ وَاحِدٍ". وَهذَا كَانَ يَقُولُهُ مُشِيراً إلى أنهُ بِأيةِ مِيتَةٍ يَمُوتُ. فَأجَابَهُ الْجَمْعُ وَقَالَ: "نَحْنُ سَمِعْنَا مِنَ النَّامُوسِ أنَّ الْمَسِيحَ يَثْبُتُ إلَى الأبدِ، فَكَيْفَ تَقُولُ أَنْتَ إنَّهُ يَنْبَغِي أنْ يُرْفَعَ ابْنُ الإنْسانِ؟ مَنْ هُوَ ابْنُ الإنْسانِ؟". قَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: "إنَّ النُّورَ فِيكُمْ زَمَنَاً آخَرَ يَسِيراً، فَاسْلُكُوا في النُّورِ مَا دَامَ لَكُمُ النُّورُ لِكَيْ لا يُدْرِكَكُمُ الظَّلامُ. فَإنَّ مَنْ يَمْشِي في الظَّلاَمِ لا يَعلَمُ أيْنَ يَمْشِي. مَا دَامَ لَكُمُ النُّورُ آمِنُوا بِالنُّورِ لِتَصِيرُوا أبْنَاءَ النُّورِ". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

The Pauline Epistle from 1 Corinthians

البولس من كورونثوس الأولى

1:17-31

١ : ١٧ − ٣١

*For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not in wisdom of speech, lest the cross of Christ should be made void. For the word of the cross, to them indeed that perish, is foolishness; but to them that are saved, that is, to us, it is the power of God. For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the prudence of the prudent I will reject. Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For seeing that in the wisdom of God the world, by wisdom, knew not God, it pleased God, by the foolishness of our preaching, to save them that believe. For both the Jews require signs, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews indeed a stumblingblock, and unto the Gentiles foolishness: But unto them that are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For see your vocation, brethren, that there are not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble: But the foolish things of the world hath God chosen, that he may confound the wise; and the weak things of the world hath God chosen, that he may confound the strong. And the base things of the world, and the things that are contemptible, hath God chosen, and things that are not, that he might bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his sight. But of him are you in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and justice, and sanctification, and redemption: That, as it is written: He that glorieth, may glory in the Lord. The grace of God the Father be with you all. Amen.

لأنهُ لَمْ يُرْسِلْنِي الْمَسِيحُ لأُعَمِّدَ بَلْ لأُبشِّرَ، لَيْسَ بِحِكْمَةِ الكَلاَمِ لِكَيْ لا يَكُونَ صَلِيبُ الْمَسِيحِ بَاطِلاً. لأنَّ كَلِمَةَ الصَّلِيبِ عِنْدَ الْهَالِكِينَ جَهَالَةٌ، وَأمَّا عِنْدَنَا نَحْنُ الْمُخَلَّصِينَ فَهُوَ قُوَّةُ اللَّهِ، لأنهُ مَكْتُوبٌ: "إنِّي سَأُبِيدُ حِكْمَةَ الْحُكَمَاءِ، وَسَأرْذِلُ عِلْمَ الْفُهَمَاءِ". فَأيْنَ الْحَكِيمُ؟ وَأيْنَ الكَاتِبُ؟ وَأيْنَ مُبَاحِثُ هذَا الدَّهْرِ؟ ألَمْ يُصَيِّرِ اللَّهُ حِكْمَةَ هذَا الْعَالَمِ جَهْلاً؟ لأنهُ إذْ كَانَ الْعَالَمُ في حِكْمَةِ اللَّهِ لَمْ يَعْرِفِ اللَّهَ بِالْحِكْمَةِ، فَسُرَّ اللَّهُ أنْ يُخَلِّصَ المُؤْمِنِينَ بِجَهَالَةِ الكِرَازَةِ. لأنَّ الْيَهُودَ يَسْأَلُونَ آيَاتٍ، وَالْيُونَانِيِّينَ يَطْلُبُونَ حِكْمَةً، أمَّا نَحْنُ فَإنَّمَا نُبَشِّرُ بِالْمَسِيحِ مَصْلُوبَاً: لِليَهُودِ عَثْرَةً، وَلِلأُمَمِ جَهَالَةً! وَلَنَا نَحْنُ مَعْشَرُ الَّذِينَ يَخْلُصُونَ مِنَ الْيَهُودِ وَالْيُونَانِيِّينَ أنَّ الْمَسِيحَ هُوَ قُوَّةُ اللَّهِ وَحِكْمَةُ اللَّهِ. لأنَّ جَهَالَةَ اللَّهِ أحْكَمُ مِنَ النَّاسِ، وَضَعْفَ اللَّهِ أقْوَى مِنَ النَّاسِ. فَانْظُرُوا دَعْوَتَكُمْ أيهَا الإخْوَةُ، أنْ لَيْسَ كَثِيرُونَ حُكَمَاءَ حَسَبَ الجَسَدِ، لَيْسَ كَثِيرُونَ أقْوِيَاءَ، لَيْسَ كَثِيرُونَ شَرِيفِي الْجِنْسِ. بَلْ اخْتَارَ اللَّهُ جُهَّالَ الْعَالَمِ لِيُخْزِيَ الْحُكَمَاءَ. وَاخْتَارَ اللَّهُ ضُعَفَاءَ الْعَالَمِ لِيُخْزِيَ بِهمْ الأقْوِيَاءَ. وَاخْتَارَ اللَّهُ أدْنِيَاءَ العَالَمِ وَالْمَرْذُولِينَ وَالَّذِينَ لَيْسُوا مَوْجُودِين لِيُبْطِلَ بِهمْ الْمَوْجُودِينَ، لِكَيْ لا يَفْتَخِرَ كُلُّ ذِي جَسَدٍ قُدَّام اللَّهِ. وَأنْتُمْ أيْضاً مِنْهُ بِالْمَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ، الَّذِي صَارَ لَنَا حِكْمَةً مِنَ قِبَلِ اللَّهِ بِرَّاً وَطَهَارَةً وَخَلاَصَاً. كَيْ كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ: "مَنْ يَفْتَخِرْ فَلْيَفْتَخِرْ بِالرَّبِّ". نعمةُ اللَّهِ الآبِ فَلْتَحِلَّ عَلَى أرواحِنا يا آبائي وإخْوَتي. آمين.

The Catholic Epistle from 1 Peter

الكاثوليكون من بطرس الأولى

2:11-25

٢ : ١١ − ٢٥

*Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, to refrain yourselves from carnal desires which war against the soul, Having your conversation good among the Gentiles: that whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by the good works, which they shall behold in you, glorify God in the day of visitation. Be ye subject therefore to every human creature for God's sake: whether it be to the king as excelling; Or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of the good: For so is the will of God, that by doing well you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As free, and not as making liberty a cloak for malice, but as the servants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king. Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward. For this is thankworthy, if for conscience towards God, a man endure sorrows, suffering wrongfully. For what glory is it, if committing sin, and being buffeted for it, you endure? But if doing well you suffer patiently; this is thankworthy before God. For unto this are you called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving you an example that you should follow his steps. Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth. Who, when he was reviled, did not revile: when he suffered, he threatened not: but delivered himself to him that judged him unjustly. Who his own self bore our sins in his body upon the tree: that we, being dead to sins, should live to justice: by whose stripes you were healed. For you were as sheep going astray; but you are now converted to the shepherd and bishop of your souls. Do not love the world or the things in the world. The world passes away, and its desires; but he who does the will of God abides forever. Amen.

أيهَا الأحِبَّاءُ، أَطْلُبُ إلَيْكُمْ كَغُرَبَاءَ وَنُزَلاَءَ، أنْ تَبْتَعِدُوا عَنِ الشَّهَوَاتِ الْجَسَدِيَّةِ التي تُقَاتِلُ النَّفْسَ، وَأنْ يَكُونَ تَصَرُّفُكُمْ حَسَناً بَيْنَ الأُمَمِ، لِكَيْ يَكُونُوا فِي مَا يَتَكَلَّمُونَ بِهِ عَلِيكُمْ كَفَاعِلِي شَرٍّ، إذْ يَرَوْنَ أعْمَالَكُمُ الصَّالِحَةَ يُمَجِّدُونَ اللَّهَ في يَوْمِ الافْتِقَادِ. فَاخْضَعُوا لِكُلِّ تَرْتِيبٍ بَشَرِيٍّ مِنْ أجْلِ الرَّبِّ. إنْ كَانَ لِلْمَلِكِ فَكَمَنْ هُوَ فَوْقَ الكُلِّ، أوْ لِلْوُلاَةِ فَكَمُرْسَلِينَ مِنْهُ لِلانْتِقَامِ مِنْ فَاعِلِي الشَّرِّ، وَلِلْمَدْحِ لِفَاعِلِي الْخَيْرِ. لأنَّ هذِهِ هيَ إرَادَةُ اللَّهِ: أنْ تَصْنَعُوا الْخَيْرَ لِكَيْ تَسِدُّوا جَهَالَةَ النَّاسِ الأغْبِيَاءِ. كَأحْرَارٍ، وَلا تَكُنْ حُرِّيَتُكُم كَسِتَارٍ لِلشَّرِّ، بَلْ كَعَبِيدٍ للَّهِ. أَكْرِمُوا كُلَّ وَاحِدٍ. أحِبُّوا الإخْوَةَ. خَافُوا اللَّهَ. أَكْرِمُوا الْمَلِكَ. أيهَا العَبِيدُ، كُونُوا خَاضِعِينَ لأَسْيَادِكُمْ بِكُلِّ خَوْفٍ، لَيْسَ فَقَطْ للصَّالِحِينَ الْمُتَرَفِّقِينَ، بَلْ للأُخَرِ الْمُعوَجِّينَ أيْضاً. لأنَّ هذِهِ نِعْمَةٌ، إنْ كَانَ أحَدٌ مِنْ أجْلِ ضَمِيرٍ نَحْوَ اللَّهِ، يَحْتَمِلُ أَحْزَاناً وَهُوَ مَظْلُومٌ. لأنَّ مَا هُوَ الافْتِخَارُ إذا كُنْتُمْ تُخْطِئُونَ وَيُقْمعُونَكُمْ فَتَصْبِرُونَ؟ لَكِنْ إذا صَنَعْتُمْ الْخَيرَ وَتَألَّمْتُمْ وَصَبِرتُمْ، فَهذِهِ هيَ نِعْمَةٌ مِنْ عِنْدِ اللَّهِ، الَّذِي دَعَاكُمْ لِهذَا. لأنَّ الْمَسِيحَ هُوَ أيْضاً تَألَّمَ عَنَّا، تَارِكَاً لَنَا مِثَالاً لِكَيْ نَتَّبِعَ خُطُوَاتِهِ. " الَّذِي لَمْ يُخْطِئْ، وَلَمْ يُوْجَدْ في فَمِهِ غِشٌّ "، وَكَانَ يُشْتَمُ وَلا يَشْتِمُ. وَإِذْ تَألَّمَ لَمْ يَغْضَبْ وَأعْطَى الْحُكْمَ لِلحَاكِمِ العَادِلِ. الَّذِي رَفَعَ خَطَايَانَا عَلَى الْخَشَبَةِ بِجَسَدِهِ، لِكيْ مَا إذا مُتْنَا بالْخَطَايَا نَحْيَا بِالبِرِّ. وَالَّذِي شُفِيتُمْ بِجِرَاحَاتِهِ. لأنكُمْ كُنْتُمْ كَمِثْلِ خِرَافٍ ضَالَّةٍ، لَكِنَّكُمْ رَجَعْتُمْ الآنَ إلى رَاعِيكُمْ وَأُسْقُفِ نُفُوسِكُمْ. لا تُحِبُّوا العَالَمَ ولا الأشْيَاءَ التي في العَالَمِ، لأنَّ العَالَمَ يمْضِي وَشَهْوَتُهُ مَعَهُ، وأمَّا مَنْ يَعملُ مَشِيئَةَ اللهِ فإنه يَثْبُتُ إلى الأبدِ. آمين.

10:34-42

١٠ : ٣٤ − ٤٢

*And Peter opening his mouth, said: In very deed I perceive, that God is not a respecter of persons. But in every nation, he that feareth him, and worketh justice, is acceptable to him. God sent the word to the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all.) You know the word which hath been published through all Judea: for it began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached, Jesus of Nazareth: how God anointed him with the Holy Ghost, and with power, who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. And we are witnesses of all things that he did in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they killed, hanging him upon a tree. Him God raised up the third day, and gave him to be made manifest, Not to all the people, but to witnesses preordained by God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he arose again from the dead; And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is he who was appointed by God, to be judge of the living and of the dead. The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed, in the holy Church of God. Amen.

فَفَتَحَ بُطْرُسُ فَاهُ وَقَالَ: "إنِّي بِالْحَقِّ أرَى أنَّ اللَّهَ لا يَأخُذُ بِالْوُجُوهِ. بَلْ في كُلِّ أُمَّةٍ، الَّذِي يَتَّقِيهِ وَيَصْنَعُ الْبِرَّ مَقْبُولٌ عِنْدَهُ. وَهُوَ أَرْسَلَ كَلِمَتَهُ لِبَنِي إسْرَائِيلَ مُبَشِّراً بِالسَّلامِ مِنْ قِبَلِ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ. هذَا هُوَ رَبُّ الْكُلِّ. وَأنْتُمْ تَعْرِفُونَ القَوْلَ الَّذِي كَانَ في كُلِّ اليَهُودِيَّةِ مُبْتَدِئَاً مِنَ الْجَلِيلِ، بَعْدَ الْمَعْمُودِيَّةِ الَّتي كَرَزَ بِهَا يُوحَنَّا. يَسُوعُ النَّاصِرِيُّ الَّذِي مَسَحَهُ اللَّهُ بِالرُّوحِ القُدُسِ وَالقُوَّةِ، هَذَا الَّذِي جَاءَ يَصْنَعُ الْخَيْرَ وَيَشْفِي كُلَّ الَّذِينَ قُهِرُوا مِنْ إِبْلِيسَ؛ لأنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ مَعَهُ. وَنَحْنُ شُهُودٌ لِكُلِّ شَيءٍ صَنَعَهُ في كُورَةِ اليَهُودِيَّةِ وَفي أُورُشَلِيمَ. هَذَا الَّذِي قَتَلُوهُ وصَلَبُوهُ عَلَى خَشَبَةٍ. هَذَا أقَامَهُ اللَّهُ في اليَوْمِ الثَّالِثِ، وَأعْطَاهُ أنْ يَظْهَرَ لَيْسَ لِجَمِيعِ الشَّعْبِ، بَلْ لِلشُهُودِ الَّذِينَ سَبَقَ اللَّهُ فَاخْتَارَهُمْ. الَّذِينَ هُمْ نَحْنُ الَّذِينَ أَكَلْنَا وَشَرِبْنَا مَعَهُ مِنْ بَعْدِ قِيامَتِهِ مِنْ بَيْنِ الأَمْوَاتِ. وَأمَرَنا أنْ نَكْرِزَ لِلشَّعْبِ، وَنَشْهَدَ بِأنَّ هَذَا هُوَ الْمُعَيَّنُ مِنَ اللَّهِ دَيَّانَاً لِلأَحْيَاءِ وَالأمْوَاتِ. وَهَذَا الَّذِي شَهِدَ لَهُ جَمِيعُ الأنبِياءِ أنَّ كُلَّ مَنْ يُؤْمِنُ بِهِ يَنَالُ بِاسْمِهِ غُفْرَانَ الْخَطَايَا". لَمْ تَزَلْ كَلِمَةُ الرَّبِّ تَنْمُو وتَكْثُرُ وتَعْتَزُّ وتَثْبُتُ، في بِيعَةِ اللَّهِ الْمُقَدَّسَةِ. آمين.

A psalm of David

مزمور لداود

65:1,2

٦٥ : ١، ٢

*Praise becomes thee, O God, in Sion; and to thee shall the vow be performed. Hear my prayer; to thee all flesh shall come. Alleluia.

لَكَ يَنْبَغِي التَّسْبِيحُ يَا اللَّهُ في صِهْيَوْنَ، وَلَكَ تُوفَى النُّذُورُ في أُورُشَلِيمَ. اسْتَمِعْ يا اللَّهُ صَلاَتِي. لأنهُ إلَيْكَ يَأتِي كُلُّ بَشَرٍ. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint John

الإنجيل من يوحنا

10:22-38

١٠ : ٢٢ − ٣٨

*And it was the feast of the dedication at Jerusalem: and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon's porch. The Jews therefore came round about him, and said to him: How long dost thou hold our souls in suspense? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. Jesus answered them: I speak to you, and you believe not: the works that I do in the name of my Father, they give testimony of me. But you do not believe, because you are not of my sheep. My sheep hear my voice: and I know them, and they follow me. And I give them life everlasting; and they shall not perish for ever, and no man shall pluck them out of my hand. That which my Father hath given me, is greater than all: and no one can snatch them out of the hand of my Father. I and the Father are one. The Jews then took up stones to stone him. Jesus answered them: Many good works I have shewed you from my Father; for which of these works do you stone me? The Jews answered him: For a good work we stone thee not, but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, maketh thyself God. Jesus answered them: Is it not written in your law: I said you are gods? If he called them gods, to whom the word of God was spoken, and the scripture cannot be broken; Do you say of him whom the Father hath sanctified and sent into the world: Thou blasphemest, because I said, I am the Son of God? If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though you will not believe me, believe the works: that you may know and believe that the Father is in me, and I in the Father. Glory be to God forever.

وَكَانَ في ذَاكَ الزَّمَن عِيدُ التَّجْدِيدِ في أُورُشَلِيمَ، وَكَانَ شِتَاءٌ. وَكَانَ يَسُوعُ يَمْشي في الْهَيْكَلِ في رِوَاقِ سُلَيْمَانَ، فَأحَاطَ بِهِ اليَهُودُ وَقَالُوا لَهُ: "إلى مَتَى تُعَلِّقُ أنْفُسَنَا؟ إنْ كُنْتَ أنْتَ الْمَسِيحَ فَقُلْ لَنَا عَلانِيةً". فَأجَابَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: "قَدْ قُلْتُ لَكُمْ فَلَمْ تُؤْمِنُوا. الأعْمَالُ التي أعْمَلُهَا أَنا بِاسْمِ أبِي هيَ تَشْهَدُ لِي. وَلَكِنَّكُمْ لَسْتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ لأنكُمْ لَسْتُمْ مِنْ خِرَافي، كَمَا قُلْتُ لَكُمْ. خِرَافي أنا تَسْمَعُ صَوْتِي، وَأَنا أعْرِفُهَا فَتَتْبَعُنِي. وَأنا أيْضَاً أُعْطِيهَا حَيَاةً أَبدِيَّةً، فَلَنْ تَهْلِكَ إلَى الأبدِ، وَلا يَقْدِرُ أَحَدٌ أنْ يَخْطَفَهَا مِنْ يَدِي. أبِي الَّذِي أعْطَانِي هُوَ أَعْظَمُ مِنَ الكُلِّ، وَلا يَقْدِرُ أحَدٌ أنْ يَخْطَفَها مِنْ يَدِ أبِي. أنا وَأبِي نَحْنُ وَاحِدٌ". فَأَخَذَ الْيَهُودُ أيْضاً حِجَارَةً لِيَرْجُمُوهُ. فَأَجَابَهُمْ يَسُوعُ قَائِلاً: "أعْمَالاً كَثِيرَةً حَسَنَةً أَرَيْتُكُمْ مِنْ عِنْدِ أبِي. فَمِنْ أَجْلِ أيِّ عَمَلٍ مِنْهَا تَرْجُمُونَنِي؟". فَأَجَابَهُ اليَهُودُ وَقَالُوا: "لَيْسَ مِنْ أَجْلِ عَمَلٍ حَسَنٍ نَرْجُمُكَ، بَلْ لأَجْلِ تَجْدِيفٍ، فَإنَّكَ وَأنْتَ إنْسَانٌ تَجْعَلُ نَفْسَكَ إلَهاً " فَأَجَابَهُمْ يَسُوعُ وَقَالَ: "ألَيْسَ مَكْتُوبَاً في نَامُوسِكُمْ: أَنا قُلْتُ إنَّكُمْ آلِهَةٌ؟ فَإنْ كَانَ قَد قَالَ لأُولئِكَ إنهُمْ آلهةٌ، الَّذِينَ صَارَتْ إلَيْهِمْ كَلِمَةُ اللَّهِ، وَلا يُمْكِنَ أنْ يُنْقَضَ الكِتَابُ، فَالَّذِي قَدَّسَهُ الآبُ وَأرْسَلَهُ إلَى الْعَالَمِ، أَتَقُولُونَ لَهُ: إنَّكَ تُجَدِّفُ، لأني قُلْتُ أَنَا هُوَ ابْنُ اللَّهِ؟ إنْ كُنْتُ لَسْتُ أَعْمَلُ أعْمَالَ أبِي فَلاَ تُؤْمِنُوا بِي. وَلكِنْ إنْ كُنْتُ أَعْمَلُها، فَإنْ لَمْ تُؤْمِنُوا بِي فَآمِنُوا بِالأَعْمَالِ، لِكَيْ تَعْلَمُوا وَتَعْرِفُوا إنِّي أَنا في أبِي وَأبِي فِيَّ". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.
