105:14,15

١٠٥ : ١٤، ١٥

*He suffered no man to wrong them; and he rebuked kings for their sakes: saying, Touch not my anointed ones; and do my prophets no harm. Alleluia.

لَمْ يَتْرُكْ إنْسَاناً يَظْلِمُهُمْ، وَبَكَّتَ ملوكاً مِنْ أجْلِهمْ، قَائِلاً: "لا تَمَسُّوا مُسَحَائي، وَلا تُسِيئوا إلى أَنبِيائِي". هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint Luke

الإنجيل من لوقا

11:37-51

١١ : ٣٧ − ٥١

*And as he was speaking, a certain Pharisee prayed him, that he would dine with him. And he going in, sat down to eat. And the Pharisee began to say, thinking within himself, why he was not washed before dinner. And the Lord said to him: Now you Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter; but your inside is full of rapine and iniquity. Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without, make also that which is within? But yet that which remaineth, give alms; and behold, all things are clean unto you. But woe to you, Pharisees, because you tithe mint and rue and every herb; and pass over judgment, and the charity of God. Now these things you ought to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Woe to you, Pharisees, because you love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and salutations in the marketplace. Woe to you, because you are as sepulchres that appear not, and men that walk over are not aware. And one of the lawyers answering, saith to him: Master, in saying these things, thou reproachest us also. But he said: Woe to you lawyers also, because you load men with burdens which they cannot bear, and you yourselves touch not the packs with one of your fingers. Woe to you who build the monuments of the prophets: and your fathers killed them. Truly you bear witness that you consent to the doings of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and you build their sepulchres. For this cause also the wisdom of God said: I will send to them prophets and apostles; and some of them they will kill and persecute. That the blood of all the prophets which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation, From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, who was slain between the alter and the temple: Yea I say to you, It shall be required of this generation. Glory be to God forever.

وَفِيمَا هُوَ يَتَكَلَّمُ سَألَهُ فَرِّيسِيٌّ أنْ يَأْكُلَ عِنْدَهُ، فَدَخَلَ وَاتَّكَأَ. وَأمَّا الفَرِّيسِيُّ لَمَّا رَأى تَعَجَّبَ أنهُ لَمْ يَغْتَسِلْ أوَّلاً قَبْلَ الأكْلِ. فَقَالَ لَهُ الرَّبُّ: "أنْتُمُ الآنَ أيهَا الفَرِّيسِيُّونَ تُنَقُّونَ خَارجَ الكَأْسِ وَالصَّحْفَةِ، وَأمَّا دَاخِلُكُمْ فَمَمْلُوءٌ اخْتِطَافَاً وَخُبْثاً. أيهَا الْجُهَّالُ، أليْسَ الَّذِي صَنَعَ الْخَارجَ صَنَعَ الدَّاخِلَ أيْضاً؟ بَلْ أَعْطُوا مَا عِنْدَكُمْ صَدَقَةً، وَهَا كُلُّ شَيءٍ يَتَطَهَّرُ لَكُمْ. وَلَكِنْ وَيْلٌ لَكُمْ أيهَا الْفَرِّيسِيُّونَ! لأنكُمْ تُعَشِّرُونَ النَّعْنَاعَ والسَّذَابَ وَكُلَّ بَقْلٍ، وَتَتَجَاوَزُونَ عَنِ الْحَقِّ وَمَحَبَّةِ اللَّهِ. وَكَانَ يَجِبُ أنْ تَفْعَلُوا هذِهِ ولا تَتْرُكُوا تِلْكَ الأُخَرَ. وَيْلٌ لَكُمْ أيهَا الفَرِّيسِيُّونَ! لأنكُمْ تُحِبُّونَ الْمَجْلِسَ الأوَّلَ في الْمَجَامِعِ، وَالتَّحِيَّاتِ في الأسْوَاقِ. وَيْلٌ لَكُمْ أيهَا الْكَتَبَةُ وَالفَرِّيسِيُّونَ الْمُرَاؤُونَ! فَإنَّكُمْ مِثْلُ القُبُورِ التي لَيْسَتْ ظَاهِرَةً، والنَّاسُ عَلَيْهَا مَاشُونَ ولا يَعْلَمُونَ!". فَأجَابَ وَاحِدٌ مِنَ النَّامُوسِيِّينَ وَقَالَ لَهُ: "يَا أيهَا الْمُعَلِّمُ، عِنْدَمَا تَقُولُ هذَا تَشْتِمُنَا نَحْنُ أيْضاً!". أمَّا هُوَ فَقَالَ: "وَأنْتُمْ أيْضاً أيهَا النَّامُوسِيُّونَ وَيْلٌ لَكُمْ! لأنكُمْ تُحَمِّلُونَ النَّاسَ أحْمَالاً عَسِرَةً وَأنْتُمْ لا تَمَسُّونَ الأحْمَالَ بإحْدَى أصَابِعِكُمْ. وَيْلٌ لَكُمْ! فَإنَّكُمْ تَبْنُونَ قُبُورَ الأنبِيَاءِ، وَآبَاؤُكُمْ قَتَلُوهُمْ. فَأنْتُمْ إذاً تَشْهَدُونَ وَتُسَرُّونَ بِأعْمَالِ آبَائِكُمْ، لأنهُمْ هُمْ قَتَلُوهُمْ وَأنْتُمْ تَبْنُونَ قُبُورَهُمْ. وَمِنْ أجْلِ هذَا أيْضاً قَالَتْ حِكْمَةُ اللَّهِ: إنِّي أُرْسِلُ إلَيْهِمْ أنبِيَاءَ وَرُسُلاً، فَيَقْتُلُونَ مِنْهُمْ وَيَطْرُدُونَهم كيمَا يُنْتَقَمُ مِنْ هذَا الْجِيلِ لِدَمِ جَمِيعِ الأنبِيَاءِ الْمَسْفُوكِ مُنْذُ إنْشَاءِ الْعَالَمِ، مِنْ دَمِ هَابِيلَ إلى دَمِ زكَرِيَّا بن بَرَاشِيَا الَّذِي أُهْلِكَ بَيْنَ الْمَذْبَحِ وَالْبَيْتِ. نَعَمْ، إنِّي أقُولُ لَكُمْ: إنَّهُ سَيُطْلَبُ مِنْ هذَا الْجِيلِ". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

17:1-9

١٧ : ١ − ٩

*And after six days Jesus taketh unto him Peter and James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into a high mountain apart: And he was transfigured before them. And his face did shine as the sun: and his garments became white as snow. And behold there appeared to them Moses and Elias talking with him. And Peter answering, said to Jesus: Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. And as he was yet speaking, behold a bright cloud overshadowed them. And lo, a voice out of the cloud, saying: This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased: hear ye him. And the disciples hearing, fell upon their face, and were very much afraid. And Jesus came and touched them: and said to them, Arise, and fear not. And they lifting up their eyes saw no one but only Jesus. And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying: Tell the vision to no man, till the Son of man be risen from the dead. Glory be to God forever.

وَبَعْدَ سِتَّةِ أيامٍ أخَذَ يَسُوعُ بُطْرُسَ وَيَعْقُوبَ وَيُوحَنَّا أخَاهُ وَأَصْعَدَهُمْ عَلَى جَبَلٍ عَالٍ مُنْفَرِدِينَ وَحدَهُمْ. وَتَجْلَّى قُدَّامَهُمْ، وَأضَاءَ وَجْهُهُ كَالشَّمْسِ، وَابْيَضَّتْ ثِيَابُهُ كَالنُّورِ. وَإذَا مُوسَى وَإيلِيَّا قَدْ ظَهَرَا لَهُ يُخَاطِبَانِهِ. فَأجَابَ بُطْرُسُ وَقَالَ لِيَسُوعَ: "يَارَبُّ، إنَّهُ حَسَنٌ لَنَا أنْ نَكُونَ هَهُنَا! أتَشَاءُ أنْ نَصْنَعَ هُنَا ثَلاَثَ مَظَالَّ: وَاحِدَةً لَكَ، وَوَاحِدَةً لِمُوسَى، وَوَاحِدَةً لإيلِيَّا". فَبَيْنَمَا هُوَ يَتَكَلَّمُ إذَا سَحَابَةٌ نَيِّرةٌ قَدْ ظَلَّلَتْهُمْ، وَصَوْتٌ مِنَ السَّحَابَةِ قَائِلاً: "هَذَا هُوَ ابْنِي حَبِيبِي الَّذِي سُرَّتْ بِهِ نَفْسِي. فَأَطِيعُوهُ". فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ التَّلامِيذُ سَقَطُوا عَلَى وُجُوهِهِمْ وَخَافُوا جِدَّاً. فَجَاءَ إليهم يَسُوعُ وَلَمَسَهُمْ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: "قُومُوا، وَلا تَخَافُوا". فَرَفَعُوا عيونَهُمْ فَلَمْ يَرَوْا أحَداً إلاَّ يَسُوعَ وَحْدَهُ. وَفِيمَا هُمْ مُنْحَدِرِونَ مِنَ الْجَبَلِ أَوْصَاهُمْ يَسُوعُ قَائِلاً: "لا تُعْلِمُوا أَحَداً بِالرُؤيةِ إلى أنْ يَقُومَ ابْنُ الإنْسانِ مِنْ بَيْنِ الأمْوَاتِ". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

11:17-27

١١ : ١٧ − ٢٧

*By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered Isaac: and he that had received the promises, offered up his only begotten son; (To whom it was said: In Isaac shall thy seed be called.) Accounting that God is able to raise up even from the dead. Whereupon also he received him for a parable. By faith also of things to come, Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau. By faith Jacob dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, and adored the top of his rod. By faith Joseph, when he was dying, made mention of the going out of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones. By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months by his parents; because they saw he was a comely babe, and they feared not the king's edict. By faith Moses, when he was grown up, denied himself to be the son of Pharao's daughter; Rather choosing to be afflicted with the people of God, than to have the pleasure of sin for a time, Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasure of the Egyptians. For he looked unto the reward. By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the fierceness of the king: for he endured as seeing him that is invisible. The grace of God the Father be with you all. Amen.

بِالإيمَانِ قَرَّبَ إبْرَاهِيمُ إسْحَقَ حِينَ جُرِّبَ. وَقَرَّبَ ابْنَهُ الوَحِيدَ ذَاكَ الَّذِي قَبِلَ الْمَوَاعِيدَ بِسَبَبِهِ، الَّذِي قِيلَ لَهُ: "إنَّهُ بِإسْحَقَ يُدْعَى لَكَ نَسْلٌ". وَافْتَكَرَ في نَفْسِهِ أنَّ اللَّهَ قَادِرٌ أنْ يُقِيمَهُ مِنَ الأمْوَاتِ، فَمِنْ أجْلِ هذَا أخَذَهُ بِمِثَالٍ. بِالإيمَانِ مِنْ أجْلِ مَا سَيَكُونُ بَارَكَ إسْحَقُ يَعْقُوبَ وَعِيسُو. بِالإيمَانِ يَعْقُوبُ عِنْدَ مَوْتهِ بَارَكَ كُلَّ وَاحِدٍ مِنْ ابْنَيْ يُوسُفَ، وَسَجَدَ عَلَى رَأْسِ عَصَاهُ. بِالإيمَانِ يُوسُفُ عِنْدَ مَوْتهِ ذَكَرَ خُرُوجَ بَنِي إسْرَائِيلَ وَأَوْصَى مِنْ أجْلِ عِظَامِهِ. بِالإيمَانِ مُوسَى، لَمَّا وُلِدَ، أخْفَاهُ أبَوَاهُ ثَلاَثَةَ أَشْهُرٍ، لأنهُمَا رَأَيا الصَّبِيَّ جَمِيلاً، وَلَمْ يَخَافَا مِنْ أمْرِ الْمَلِكِ. بِالإيمَانِ مُوسَى لَمَّا كَبِرَ أَنْكَرَ أنْ يُدْعَى ابْناً لابْنَةِ فِرْعَوْنَ، وَشَاءَ بالأحْرَى أنْ يَتَألَّمَ مَعَ شَعْبِ اللَّهِ أفْضَلَ مِنْ أنْ يَتَنَعَّمَ بِالْخَطِيَّةِ زَمَنَاً يَسِيراً، إذْ جَعَلَ عَارَ الْمَسِيحِ عِنْدَهُ أنهُ غِنى عَظِيمٌ أوْفَرُ مِنْ كُنُوزِ مِصْرَ؛ لأنهُ كَانَ يَنْتَظِرُ حُسْنَ الْمُجَازَاةِ. بِالإيمَانِ تَرَكَ مِصْرَ وَلَمْ يَخَفْ مِنْ غَضَبِ الْمَلِكِ، لأنهُ ثَبَتَ لغَيرِ المَنْظُورِ مِثْلَ وَاحِدٍ مَنْظُورٍ. نعمةُ اللَّهِ الآبِ فَلْتَحِلَّ عَلَى أرواحِنا يا آبائي وإخْوَتي. آمين.

The Catholic Epistle from 2 Peter

الكاثوليكون من بطرس الثانية

1:19-2:8

١ : ١٩ − ٢ : ٨

*And we have the more firm prophetical word: whereunto you do well to attend, as to a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Understanding this first, that no prophecy of scripture is made by private interpretation. For prophecy came not by the will of man at any time: but the holy men of God spoke, inspired by the Holy Ghost. He warns them against false teachers and foretells their punishment. But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there shall be among you lying teachers, who shall bring in sects of perdition, and deny the Lord who bought them: bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their riotousnesses, through whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you. Whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their perdition slumbereth not. For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but delivered them, drawn down by infernal ropes to the lower hell, unto torments, to be reserved unto judgment: And spared not the original world, but preserved Noe, the eighth person, the preacher of justice, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly. And reducing the cities of the Sodomites, and of the Gomorrhites, into ashes, condemned them to be overthrown, making them an example to those that should after act wickedly. And delivered just Lot, oppressed by the injustice and lewd conversation of the wicked. For in sight and hearing he was just: dwelling among them, who from day to day vexed the just soul with unjust works. 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.

وَثَابِتٌ عِنْدَنَا كَلامُ الأنبِيَاءِ، هذَا الَّذِي هُوَ نِعْمَ مَا تَصْنَعُونَهُ إذَا تَأمَّلْتُمْ إلَيْهِ، كَمِثْلِ سِرَاجٍ مُضِيءٍ في مَوْضِعٍ مُظْلِمٍ، حتَّى يَظْهَرَ النَّهَارُ، وَالنُّورُ يُشْرِقَ وَيَظْهَرَ في قُلُوبِكُمْ، وَهذَا أَوَّلاً فَاعْلَمُوهُ: أنَّ كُلَّ نُبُوَّاتِ الْكُتبِ لَيْسَ تَأْوِيلُهَا مِنْ ذَاتِهَا خَاصَةً. وَلَيْسَتْ بِمَشِيئَةِ إنْسَانٍ جَاءَتْ نُبوَّةٌ في زَمَانٍ، بَلْ تَكَلَّمَ أُنَاسٌ بِإرَادَةِ اللَّهِ بِالرُّوحِ الْقُدُسِ. وَقَدْ كَانَ أنْبِيَاءُ كَذَبَةٌ في الشَّعْبِ، مِثْلُ مَا يَكُونُ فِيكُمْ مُعَلِّمُونَ كَذَّابُونَ، هَؤُلاءِ الَّذِينَ يَأتونَ بِبِدَعِ هَلاكٍ. وَالسَّيِّدُ الَّذِي اشْتَرَاهُمْ يَجْحَدُونَهُ، وَيَجْلِبُونَ عَلَى أنْفُسِهِمْ هَلاَكَاً سَرِيعاً. وَكَثِيرُونَ يَنْجَذِبُونَ نَحْوَ نَجَاسَاتِهِمْ، وَمِنْ قِبَلِهِمْ يُجَدَّفُ عَلَى طَرِيقِ الْحَقِّ. وَبِالظُّلْمِ وَكَلامِ البَاطِلِ يَتَّجِرُونَ بِكُمْ، هَؤُلاءِ الَّذِينَ دَيْنُونَتُهُمْ مُنْذُ البَدْءِ لا تَبْطُلُ، وَهَلاكُهُمْ لا يَنْعَسُ. فَإنْ كَانَ اللَّهُ لَمْ يُشْفِقْ عَلَى الْمَلائِكَةِ الَّذِينَ أَخْطَأوا، لكِنْ أَسْلَمَهُمْ في وِثَاقِ الظُّلْمَةِ والزَّمْهَرِيرِ لِيُحْفَظُوا للدَّيْنُونَةِ مُعَذَّبِينَ، وَالعَالَمُ الأوَّلُ لَمْ يُشْفِقْ عَلِيهِ، لكِنّ نُوْحَ الثَّامِنَ الْمُنَادِيَ بِالبِرِّ حَفِظَهُ، وَأتَى بِمَاءِ الطُّوفَانِ عَلَى العَالَمِ الْمُنَافِقِ. وَالْمُدُنُ الأُخَرُ سَادُومُ وَعَامُورَةُ أحْرَقَهُمَا، وَحَكَمَ عَلَيْهِمَا بالْخَسْفِ، وَجَعَلَهُمَا عِبْرَةً لِلمُنَافِقِينَ الَّذِينَ سَيَكُونُونَ، وَالصِّدِّيقُ لُوطٌ خَلَّصَهُ مِنْ ظُلْمِهِمْ، ومِنْ تَقَلُّبِهِمِ الرَّدِيءِ وَسُلُوكِهِمِ النَّجِسِ. لأنهُ بِالنَّظَرِ وَالسَّمْعِ كَانَ الصِّدِّيقُ سَاكِناً بَيْنَهُمْ، وَيَوْماً فَيَوْماً كَانُوا يُحْزِنُونَ نَفْسَ الصِّدِّيقِ بِأعَمَالٍ مُخَالِفَةٍ لِلنَّامُوسِ. لا تُحِبُّوا العَالَمَ ولا الأشْيَاءَ التي في العَالَمِ، لأنَّ العَالَمَ يمْضِي وَشَهْوَتُهُ مَعَهُ، وأمَّا مَنْ يَعملُ مَشِيئَةَ اللهِ فإنه يَثْبُتُ إلى الأبدِ. آمين.

15:21-29

١٥ : ٢١ − ٢٩

*For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him in the synagogues, where he is read every sabbath. Then it pleased the apostles and ancients, with the whole church, to choose men of their own company, and to send to Antioch, with Paul and Barnabas, namely, Judas, who was surnamed Barsabas, and Silas, chief men among the brethren. Writing by their hands: The apostles and ancients, brethren, to the brethren of the Gentiles that are at Antioch, and in Syria and Cilicia, greeting. Forasmuch as we have heard, that some going out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls; to whom we gave no commandment: It hath seemed good to us, being assembled together, to choose out men, and to send them unto you, with our well beloved Barnabas and Paul: Men that have given their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have sent therefore Judas and Silas, who themselves also will, by word of mouth, tell you the same things. For it hath seemed good to the Holy Ghost and to us, to lay no further burden upon you than these necessary things: That you abstain from things sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication; from which things keeping yourselves, you shall do well. Fare ye well. The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed, in the holy Church of God. Amen.

*Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: because you devour the houses of widows, praying long prayers. For this you shall receive the greater judgment. Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you go round about the sea and the land to make one proselyte; and when he is made, you make him the child of hell twofold more than yourselves. Woe to you blind guides, that say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but he that shall swear by the gold of the temple, is a debtor. Ye foolish and blind; for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? And whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gift that is upon it, is a debtor. Ye blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift? He therefore that sweareth by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things that are upon it: And whosoever shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth in it: And he that sweareth by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon. Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you tithe mint, and anise, and cummin, and have left the weightier things of the law; judgment, and mercy, and faith. These things you ought to have done, and not to leave those undone. Blind guides, who strain out a gnat, and swallow a camel. Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you make clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but within you are full of rapine and uncleanness. Thou blind Pharisee, first make clean the inside of the cup and of the dish, that the outside may become clean. Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you are like to whited sepulchres, which outwardly appear to men beautiful, but within are full of dead men's bones, and of all filthiness. So you also outwardly indeed appear to men just; but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; that build the sepulchres of the prophets, and adorn the monuments of the just, And say: If we had been in the days of our Fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. Wherefore you are witnesses against yourselves, that you are the sons of them that killed the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. You serpents, generation of vipers, how will you flee from the judgment of hell? Therefore behold I send to you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them you will put to death and crucify, and some you will scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city: That upon you may come all the just blood that hath been shed upon the earth, from the blood of Abel the just, even unto the blood of Zacharias the son of Barachias, whom you killed between the temple and the altar. Amen I say to you, all these things shall come upon this generation. Glory be to God forever.

الْوَيْلُ لَكُمْ أيهَا الكَتَبَةُ والْفَرِّيسِيُّونَ الْمُرَاؤُونَ! لأنكُمْ تُغْلِقُونَ مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَوَاتِ قُدَّامَ النَّاسِ، فَأنْتُمْ لا تَدْخُلُونَ ولا تَدَعُونَ الآتِينَ أنْ يَدْخُلُوا. وَيْلٌ لَكُمْ أيهَا الكَتَبَةُ وَالْفَرِّيسِيُّونَ الْمُرَاؤُونَ! لأنكُمْ تَطُوفُونَ الْبَحْرَ والبَرَّ لِتَصْنَعُوا دَخِيلاً وَاحِداً، وإذا كَانَ فَتُصِّيرُونَهُ ابْناً لِجَهَنَّمَ مُضَاعَفَاً عَلِيكُمْ. وَيْلٌ لَكُمْ أيهَا القَادَةُ العُمْيَانُ! القَائِلُونَ: مَنْ يَحْلِفُ بِالْهَيْكَلِ فَلَيْسَ بِشَيءٍ، وَمَنْ يَحْلِفُ بِذَهَبِ الْهَيْكَلِ كَانَ عَلَيْهِ. أيهَا الْجُهَّالُ وَالعُمْيَانُ! أيمَا أَعْظَمُ: الذَّهَبُ أَمِ الْهَيْكَلُ الَّذِي يُقَدِّسُ الذَّهَبَ؟ وَمَنْ يَحْلِفُ بِالْمَذْبَحِ فَلَيْسَ بِشَيءٍ، وَمَنْ يَحْلِفُ بِالْقُرْبَانِ الَّذِي فَوْقَهُ كَانَ عَلَيْهِ. يا أيهَا الْجُهَّالُ والْعُمْيَانُ! أيمَا أَعْظَمُ: الْقُرْبَانُ أَمِ الْمَذْبَحِ الَّذِي يُقَدِّسُ القُرْبَانَ؟ فَمَنْ يَحْلِفُ بالْمَذْبَحِ فَقَدْ حَلَفَ بِهِ وَبِكُلِّ مَا فَوْقَهُ. وَمَنْ يَحْلِفُ بالْهَيْكَلِ فَقَدْ حَلَفَ بِهِ وبِالسَّاكِنِ فِيهِ، وَمَنْ يَحْلِفُ بِالسَّمَاءِ فَقَدْ حَلَفَ بِعَرْشِ اللَّه وبِالْجَالِسِ عَلَيْهِ. وَيْلٌ لَكُمْ أيهَا الكَتَبَةُ وَالفَرِّيسِيُّونَ الْمُرَاؤُونَ! لأنكُمْ تُعَشِّرُونَ النَّعْنَاعَ وَالشّبَثَّ وَالكَمُّونَ، وَتَرَكْتُمْ عَنْكُمْ أثْقَلَ النَّامُوسِ: الْحُكَمَ وَالرَّحْمَةَ والإيمَانَ. وَكَانَ يَجِبُ أنْ تَعْمَلُوا هذِهِ وَلا تَتْرُكُوا تِلْكَ. أيهَا القَادَةُ العُمْيَانُ! الَّذِينَ يُصَفُّونَ عَنِ البَعُوضَةِ وَيَبْلَعُونَ الْجَمَلَ. وَيْلٌ لَكُمْ أيهَا الكَتَبَةُ والفَرِّيسِيُّونَ! لأنكُمْ تُنَظِّفُونَ خَارجَ الكَأْسِ وَالصَّحْفَةِ، وَدَاخِلُهُمَا مَمْلُوءٌ اخْتِطَافَاً وَنَجَاسَةً. أيهَا الفَرِّيسِيُّ الأعْمَى! طَهِّرْ أوَّلاً دَاخِلَ الكَأْسِ وَالطَّاسِ لِكَيْ يَتَطَهَّرَ خَارِجُهُمَا. الْوَيْلُ لَكُمْ أيهَا الكَتَبَةُ والفَرِّيسِيُّونَ الْمُرَاؤُونَ! لأنكُمْ تُشْبِهُونَ قُبُوراً تَبْدُو مُبَيَّضَةً، خَارِجُهَا يَظْهَرُ حَسناً، وَدَاخِلُهَا مَمْلُوءٌ عِظَامَ أمْوَاتٍ وَكُلَّ نَجَاسَةٍ. هكَذَا أنْتُمْ أيْضاً: تَبْدُو ظَوَاهِرُكُمْ لِلنَّاسِ مِثْلُ الصِّدِّيقِينَ، وَبَوَاطِنُكُمْ مُمْتَلِئَةٌ رِياءً وَكُلَّ إثْمٍ. وَيْلٌ لَكُمْ أيهَا الكَتَبَةُ وَالفَرِّيسِيُّونَ الْمُرَاؤُونَ! لأنكُمْ تَبْنُونَ قُبُورَ الأنْبِيَاءِ وَتُزَيِّنُونَ مَدَافِنَ الأبْرَارِ، وَتَقُولُونَ: لَوْ كُنَّا في أيامِ آبَائِنَا لَمْ نَكُنْ شُرَكَاءَهُمْ في دَمِ الأنْبِيَاءِ. فَتَشْهَدُونَ إذاً عَلَى نُفُوسِكُمْ أنكُمْ أبْنَاءُ قَتَلَةِ الأنْبِيَاءِ. وَأَكْمَلْتُمْ أنْتُمْ أيْضاً مِكْيَالَ آبَائِكُمْ. أيهَا الْحَيَّاتُ أوْلادَ الأفَاعِي! كَيْفَ تَهْرُبُونَ مِنْ دَيْنُونَةِ جَهَنَّمَ؟ مِنْ أجْلِ هذَا هأنَذا أُرْسِلُ إلَيْكُمْ أنْبِيَاءَ وَحُكَمَاءَ وَكَتَبَةً، فَتَقْتُلُونَ مِنْهُمْ وَتَصْلِبُونَ، وَتَجْلِدُونَ مِنْهُمْ في مَجَامِعِكُمْ، وَتَطْرُدُونَهم مِنْ مَدِينَةٍ إلى مَدِينَةٍ، لِكَيْ مَا يَأتِيَ عَلَيْكُمْ كُلُّ دَمٍ زَكِيٍّ سُفِكَ عَلَى الأَرْضِ، مِنْ دَمِ هَابِيلَ الصِّدِّيقِ إلى دَمِ زَكَرِيَّا بْنِ بَرَاشِياالَّذِي قَتَلْتُمُوهُ بَيْنَ الْهَيْكَلِ وَالْمَذْبَحِ. الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: إنَّ هذِهِ جَمِيعَهَا تَأتِي عَلَى هذَا الْجِيلِ. وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.
