87:3,5,7

٨٧ : ٣، ٥، ٧

*Glorious things have been spoken of thee, O city of God. Pause. A man shall say, Sion is my mother; and such a man was born in her; and the Highest himself has founded her. The dwelling of all within thee is as the dwelling of those that rejoice. Alleluia.

أَعْمَالٌ مَجِيدَةٌ قَدْ قِيلَتْ لأَجْلِكِ، يَا مَدِينةَ اللَّهِ. وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الَّذِي أسَّسَهَا إلى الأَبدِ. لأنَّ سُكنَى الْفَرِحِينَ جَمِيعِهِمْ فِيكِ. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint Luke

10:38-42

١٠ : ٣٨ − ٤٢

*Now it came to pass as they went, that he entered into a certain town: and a certain woman named Martha, received him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sitting also at the Lord's feet, heard his word. But Martha was busy about much serving. Who stood and said: Lord, hast thou no care that my sister hath left me alone to serve? speak to her therefore, that she help me. And the Lord answering, said to her: Martha, Martha, thou art careful, and art troubled about many things: But one thing is necessary. Mary hath chosen the best part, which shall not be taken away from her. Glory be to God forever.

وَفِيمَا هُمْ سَائِرُونَ دَخَلَ قَرْيَةً، فَقَبِلَتْهُ امْرَأَةٌ اسْمُهَا مَرْثَا في بَيْتِهَا. وَكَانَتْ لِهذِهِ أُخْتٌ تُدْعَى مَرْيَمَ، وَهِيَ التي جَلَسَتْ عِنْدَ قَدَمَيْ يَسُوعَ وَكَانَتْ تَسْمَعُ كَلاَمَهُ. وَأمَّا مَرْثا فَكَانَتْ مُرْتَبِكَةً في قَضَاءِ خِدَمٍ كَثِيرَةٍ. فَقَامَتْ وَقَالَتْ: "يَارَبُّ، أَمَا يُعْنِيكَ أَمْرِي بِأَنَّ أُخْتِي قَدْ تَرَكَتْنِي أَخْدُمُ وَحْدِي؟ فَقُلْ لَهَا أنْ تُسَاعدَنِي". فَأَجَابَ يَسُوعُ وَقَالَ لَهَا: "مَرْثَا، مَرْثَا، أَنْتِ تَهْتَمِّينَ وَتَضْطَرِبِينَ لأَجْلِ أُمُورٍ كَثِيرَةٍ، وَلكِنَّ الْحَاجَةَ إلى وَاحِدٍ. وَأمَّا مَرْيَمُ فَاخْتَارَتْ لَهَا النَّصِيبَ الصَّالِحَ الَّذِي لَنْ يُنْزَعَ مِنْهَا إلى الأَبدِ". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

٤٨ : ٨، ١

*As we have heard, so have we also seen, in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God: God has founded it for ever. Pause. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in his holy mountain. Alleluia.

كَمِثْلِ مَا سَمِعْنَا كَذلِكَ رَأَيْنَا، في مَدِينَةِ رَبِّ الْقُوَّاتِ في مَدِينَةِ إلَهِنَا. عَظِيمٌ هُوَ الرَّبُّ وَمُسَبَّحٌ جِدّاً، في مَدِينَةِ إلَهِنَا عَلَى جَبَلِهِ الْمُقَدَّسِ. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint Mathew

الإنجيل من متى

12:35-50

١٢ : ٣٥ − ٥٠

*A good man out of a good treasure bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of an evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall render an account for it in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered him, saying: Master we would see a sign from thee. Who answering said to them: An evil and adulterous generation seeketh a sign: and a sign shall not be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. For as Jonas was in the whale's belly three days and three nights: so shall the Son of man be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights. The men of Ninive shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they did penance at the preaching of Jonas. And behold a greater than Jonas here. The queen of the south shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold a greater than Solomon here. And when an unclean spirit is gone out of a man he walketh through dry places seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith: I will return into my house from whence I came out. And coming he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then he goeth, and taketh with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is made worse than the first. So shall it be also to this wicked generation. As he was yet speaking to the multitudes, behold his mother and his brethren stood without, seeking to speak to him. And one said unto him: Behold thy mother and thy brethren stand without, seeking thee. But he answering him that told him, said: Who is my mother, and who are my brethren? And stretching forth his hand towards his disciples, he said: Behold my mother and my brethren. For whosoever shall do the will of my Father, that is in heaven, he is my brother, and sister, and mother. Glory be to God forever.

The Pauline Epistle from Hebrews

البولس من عبرانيين

9:1-12

٩ : ١ − ١٢

*The former indeed had also justifications of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary. For there was a tabernacle made the first, wherein were the candlesticks, and the table, and the setting forth of loaves, which is called the holy. And after the second veil, the tabernacle, which is called the holy of holies: Having a golden censer, and the ark of the testament covered about on every part with gold, in which was a golden pot that had manna, and the rod of Aaron, that had blossomed, and the tables of the testament. And over it were the cherubims of glory overshadowing the propitiatory: of which it is not needful to speak now particularly. Now these things being thus ordered, into the first tabernacle the priests indeed always entered, accomplishing the offices of sacrifices. But into the second, the high priest alone, once a year: not without blood, which he offereth for his own, and the people's ignorance: The Holy Ghost signifying this, that the way into the holies was not yet made manifest, whilst the former tabernacle was yet standing. Which is a parable of the time present: according to which gifts and sacrifices are offered, which can not, as to the conscience, make him perfect that serveth, only in meats and in drinks, And divers washings, and justices of the flesh laid on them until the time of correction. But Christ, being come an high priest of the good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hand, that is, not of this creation: Neither by the blood of goats, or of calves, but by his own blood, entered once into the holies, having obtained eternal redemption. The grace of God the Father be with you all. Amen.

فَأمَّا القُبَّةُ الأُولَى فَكَانَ فِيها وَصَايَا الْخِدْمَةِ وَقُدسٌ مُزيَّنٌ، لأنَّ القُبَّةَ الأُولَى صُنِعَتْ وَهيَ التي كَانَتْ فِيهَا الْمَنَارَةُ، وَالْمَائِدَةُ، وَخُبْزُ التَّقْدِمَةِ. وَتُدْعَى القُدْسَ. وَبَعْدَ الْحِجَابِ الثَّانِي القُبَّةُ التي تُدْعَى قُدْسَ الأَقْدَاسِ وَكَانَ فيها مِبْخَرَةٌ مِنْ ذَهَبٍ، وَتَابُوتُ الْعَهْدِ الْمُصَفَّحِ بِالذَّهَبِ مِنْ كُلِّ جَانِبٍ، وَكَانَ فِيهِ قِسْطُ الذَّهَبِ الَّذِي فِيهِ الْمَنُّ، وَعَصَا هَارُونَ التِي أَفْرَخَتْ، وَلَوْحَا الْعَهْدِ. وَفَوْقَهُ كَانَ كَارُوبَا الْمَجْدِ مُظَلِّلَيْنِ مَوْضِعَ الاستغفَارِ. هَذِهِ التِي لَيْسَ لَنَا أنْ نَتَكَلَّمَ عَنْهَا بِالتَّفْصِيلِ. فَهذِهِ لَمَّا تُصْنَعُ هكَذَا، يَدْخُلُ الكَهَنَةُ إلى القُبَّةِ الأولَى في كُلِّ حِينٍ لإتْمَامِ الْخِدْمَةِ. أَمَّا الْقُبَّةُ الثَّانِيةُ فَيَدْخُلُهَا رَئِيسُ الكَهَنَةِ وَحْدَهُ مَرَّةً في كُلِّ سَنَةٍ، وَلَيْسَ بِغَيرِ دَمٍ الَّذِي كَانَ يُقَدِّمُهُ عَنْ نَفْسِهِ وَعَنْ جَهَالاتِ الشَّعْبِ، وَهذَا يُظْهِرُهُ الرُّوحُ القُدُسُ أنَّ طَرِيقَ الأقْدَاسِ لَمْ يُظْهَرْ بَعْدُ، مَا دَامَتْ القُبَّةُ الأُولَى قَائِمَةً، التي هيَ رَمْزُ هذا الزَّمَانِ الْحَاضِرِ، الَّذِي فِيهِ كَانُوا يَرْفَعُونَ القَرَابِينَ وَالذَّبَائِحَ، التي لا يُمْكِنُهَا بِالنِّيَّةِ أنْ تُكَمِّلَ مَنْ يَخْدِمُ، إلاَّ بِالْمَطْعَمِ فَقَطْ وَالْمَشْرَبِ وَغَسَلاتٍ مُخْتَلِفَةٍ التي هِيَ فَرَائِضُ جَسَدِيَّةٌ، وُضِعَتْ إلى زَمَانِ التَّقْوِيمِ. وَأَمَّا الْمَسِيحُ، فَهُوَ قَدْ جَاءَ رَئِيسَ كَهَنَةٍ لِلْخَيْرَاتِ الْعَتِيدَةِ، فَبِالْمَسْكَنِ الأَعْظَمِ وَالأَكْمَلِ، غَيْرِ الْمَصْنُوعِ بِيَدٍ، أي الَّذِي لَيْسَ مِنْ هَذِهِ الْخَلِيقَةِ، وَلَيْسَ بِدَمِ تُيُوسٍ وَعُجُولٍ، بَلْ بِدَمِهِ بِنَفْسِهِ، دَخَلَ الأَقْدَاسَ مَرَّةً وَاحِدةً فَوَجَدَ فِدَاءً أَبدِيَّاً. نعمةُ اللَّهِ الآبِ فَلْتَحِلَّ عَلَى أرواحِنا يا آبائي وإخْوَتي. آمين.

The Catholic Epistle from 2 John

الكاثوليكون من يوحنا الثانية

1:1-13

١ : ١ − ١٣

*The ancient to the lady Elect, and her children, whom I love in the truth, and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth, For the sake of the truth which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever. Grace be with you, mercy, and peace from God the Father, and from Christ Jesus the Son of the Father; in truth and charity. I was exceeding glad, that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father. And now I beseech thee, lady, not as writing a new commandment to thee, but that which we have had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is charity, that we walk according to his commandments. For this is the commandment, that, as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in the same: For many seducers are gone out into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh: this is a seducer and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that you lose not the things which you have wrought: but that you may receive a full reward. Whosoever revolteth, and continueth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that continueth in the doctrine, the same hath both the Father and the Son. If any man come to you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into the house nor say to him, God speed you. For he that saith unto him, God speed you, communicateth with his wicked works. Having more things to write unto you, I would not by paper and ink: for I hope that I shall be with you, and speak face to face: that your joy may be full. The children of thy sister Elect salute thee. 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.

مِنَ الشَّيخِ إلى السَّيِّدَةِ الْمُخْتَارَةِ، وَإلى أَوْلاَدِهَا الَّذِينَ أَنا أُحِبُّهُمْ بِالْحَقِّ، وَلَسْتُ أَنا فَقَطْ، بَلْ جَمِيعُ الَّذِينَ قَدْ عَرَفُوا الْحَقَّ. مِنْ أَجْلِ الْحَقِّ الثَّابِتِ فِينا وَسَيَكُونُ مَعَنَا إلى الأَبدِ: تَكُونُ النِّعْمَةُ وَالرَّحْمَةُ وَالسَّلامُ مَعَنَا مِنَ اللَّهِ الآبِ وَمِنْ رَبِّنَا يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ، ابْنِ الآبِ بِالْحَقِّ وَالْمَحَبَّةِ. فَرِحْتُ جِدّاً لأني وَجَدْتُ مِنْ أَوْلاَدِكِ سَالِكِينَ في الْحَقِّ، كَمَا أَخَذْنَا وَصِيَّةً مِنَ الآبِ. وَالآنَ أَطْلُبُ مِنْكِ أيتُهَا السَّيِّدَةُ، لا كَأَني أَكْتُبُ إلَيْكِ وَصِيَّةً جَدِيدَةً، بَلِ التي كَانَتْ عِنْدَنَا مِنَ الْبَدْءِ: أنْ نُحِبَّ بَعْضُنَا بَعْضَاً. وَهَذِهِ هِيَ الْمَحَبَّةُ:أنْ نَسْلُكَ بِحَسَبِ وَصَايَاهُ. هَذِهِ هِيَ الْوَصِيَّةُ كَمَا سَمِعْتُمْ مِنَ البَدْءِ أنْ تَسْلُكُوا فِيهَا. لأنهُ قَدْ جَاءَ إلى الْعَالَمِ مُضِلُّونَ كَثِيرُونَ، الَّذِينَ لا يَعْتَرِفُونَ أنَّ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحَ قَدْ جَاءَ في الْجَسَدِ. هَذَا هُوَ الْمُضِلُّ، وَالضِّدُّ لِلْمَسِيحِ. فَانْظُرُوا إلى أَنْفُسِكُمْ لِئَلاَّ تَفْقِدُوا مَا عَمِلْتمُوهُ، بَلْ تَنَالُوا أَجْراً تَامَاً. كُلُّ مَنْ يَتَعَدَّى وَلا يَثْبُتُ في تَعْلِيمِ الْمَسِيحِ فَلَيْسَ لَهُ إلَهٌ. وَمَنْ يَثْبُتْ في تَعْلِيمِ الْمَسِيحِ فَهَذَا لَهُ الآبُ وَالابْنُ. وَمَنْ يَأْتِيكُمْ، وَلا يَجِيءُ بِهَذَا التَّعْلِيمِ، فَلاَ تَقْبَلُوهُ في الْبَيْتِ، وَلا تَقُولُوا لَهُ سَلاَمٌ. لأنَّ مَنْ يَقُولُ لَهُ: سَلامٌ فَهُوَ شَرِيكٌ لَهُ في أَعْمَالِهِ الشِّرِّيرَةِ. إذْ كَانَ لي كَثِيرٌ لأَكْتُبَهُ إلَيْكُمْ، لَمْ أُرِدْ أنْ يَكُونَ بِوَرَقٍ وَحِبْرٍ؛ لأني أَرْجُو أنْ أَرَاكُمْ وَأَتكَلَّمَ فَماً لِفَمٍ، لِكَيْ يَكُونَ فَرَحُكُمْ كَامِلاً. يُسَلِّمُ عَلَيْكِ أَوْلاَدُ أُخْتِكِ الْمُخْتَارَةِ. لا تُحِبُّوا العَالَمَ ولا الأشْيَاءَ التي في العَالَمِ، لأنَّ العَالَمَ يمْضِي وَشَهْوَتُهُ مَعَهُ، وأمَّا مَنْ يَعملُ مَشِيئَةَ اللهِ فإنه يَثْبُتُ إلى الأبدِ. آمين.

1:1-14

١ : ١ − ١٤

*The former treatise I made, O Theophilus, of all things which Jesus began to do and to teach, Until the day on which, giving commandments by the Holy Ghost to the apostles whom he had chosen, he was taken up. To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion, by many proofs, for forty days appearing to them, and speaking of the kingdom of God. And eating together with them, he commanded them, that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but should wait for the promise of the Father, which you have heard (saith he) by my mouth. For John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost, not many days hence. They therefore who were come together, asked him, saying: Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? But he said to them: It is not for you to know the times or moments, which the Father hath put in his own power: But you shall receive the power of the Holy Ghost coming upon you, and you shall be witnesses unto me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the uttermost part of the earth. And when he had said these things, while they looked on, he was raised up: and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they were beholding him going up to heaven, behold two men stood by them in white garments. Who also said: Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking up to heaven? This Jesus who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, as you have seen him going into heaven. Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount that is called Olivet, which is nigh Jerusalem, within a sabbath day's journey. And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode Peter and John, James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James of Alpheus, and Simon Zelotes, and Jude the brother of James. All these were persevering with one mind in prayer with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren. The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed, in the holy Church of God. Amen.

الْكَلاَمُ الأوَّلُ أَنْشَأْتُهُ يَا ثَاؤفِيلُسُ، عَنْ جَمِيعِ مَا ابْتَدَأَ يَسُوعُ يَفْعَلُهُ وَيُعَلِّمُ بِهِ، إلى الْيَوْمِ الَّذِي فِيهِ صَعِدَ إلى السَّمَاءِ، بَعْدَ مَا أَوْصَى بِالرُّوحِ الْقُدُسِ الرُّسُلَ الَّذِينَ اخْتَارَهُمْ. الَّذِينَ ظَهَرَ لَهُمْ حَيّاً بَعْدَ مَا تَألَّمَ بِآيَاتٍ كَثِيرَةٍ، وَهُوَ يَظْهَرُ لَهُمْ أَرْبَعِينَ يَوْمَاً، وَيَتَكَلَّمُ عَنِ مَلَكُوتِ اللَّهِ. وَفِيمَا هُوَ يَأكُلُ مَعَهُمْ أَوْصَاهُمْ أنْ لا يُفَارِقُوا أُورُشَلِيمَ، بَلْ يَنْتَظِرُوا " مَوْعِدَ الآبِ الَّذِي سَمِعْتُمُوهُ مِنِّي، لأنَّ يُوحَنَّا عَمَّدَ بِالْمَاءِ، وَأمَّا أَنْتُمْ فَسَتَتَعَمَّدُونَ بِالرُّوحِ الْقُدُسِ، وَيكُونُ هذَا لَيْسَ بَعْدَ أيامٍ كَثِيرَةٍ". أمَّا هُمُ فَلَمَّا اجْتَمَعُوا كَانُوا يَسْألُونَهَ قَائِلِينَ:" يَارَبُّ، هَلْ في هذَا الزَّمَنِ تَرُدُّ الْمُلْكَ إلى إسْرَائِيلَ؟". فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: "لَيْسَ لَكُمْ أنْ تَعْرِفُوا الأَزْمِنَةَ وَالأَوْقَاتَ التي جَعَلَهَا الآبُ تَحْتَ سُلْطَانِهِ، وَلَكِنَّكُمْ سَتَنَالُونَ قُوَّةً مَتَى حَلَّ الرُّوحُ القُدُسُ عَلَيْكُمْ، وَتَكُونُونَ لِي شُهُوداً في أُورُشَلِيمَ وَفي كُلِّ اليَهُودِيةِ وَالسَّامِرَةِ وَإلى أَقْصَى الأرْضِ". وَلَمَّا قَالَ هذَا ارْتَفَعَ وَهُمْ يَنْظُرُونَ. وَأخَذَتْهُ سَحَابَةٌ عَنْ أعْيُنِهِمْ. وَفِيمَا هُمْ يَشْخَصُونَ وَهُوَ صَاعِدٌ إلى السَّمَاءِ، إذا رَجُلانِ قَدْ وَقَفَا بِهِمْ بِلِبَاسٍ أبْيَضَ، وَقَالا: "أيهَا الرِّجَالُ الْجَلِيلِيُّونَ، مَا بَالُكُمْ وَاقِفِينَ تَنْظُرُونَ إلى السَّمَاءِ؟ إنَّ يَسُوعَ هذَا الَّذِي صَعِدَ إلى السَّمَاءِ عَنْكُمْ، هكَذَا يَأتِي كَمَا رَأَيْتُمُوهُ مُنْطَلِقاً إلى السَّمَاءِ". حِينَئِذٍ رَجَعُوا إلى أُورُشَلِيمَ مِنَ الْجَبَلِ الَّذِي يُدْعَى جَبَلَ الزَّيْتُونِ، الَّذِي هُوَ بِالقُرْبِ مِنْ أُورُشَلِيمَ عَلَى سَفَرِ سَبْتٍ. وَلَمَّا دَخَلُوا صَعِدُوا إلى الْعِلِّيَّةِ التي كَانُوا يُقِيمُونَ فِيهَا: بُطْرُسُ وَيُوحَنَّا وَيَعْقُوبُ وَأَنْدَرَاوُسُ وَفِيلُبُّسُ وَتُومَا وَبَرْثُولُمَاوُسُ وَمَتَّى وَيَعْقُوبُ بْنُ حَلْفَى وَسِمْعَانُ الْغَيُورُ وَيَهُوذَا أَخُو يَعْقُوبَ. هؤُلاءِ كُلُّهُمْ كَانُوا يُواظِبُونَ بِنَفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ عَلَى الصَّلاَةِ، مَعَ نِسَاءٍ، وَمَرْيَمَ أُمِّ يَسُوعَ، وَإخْوَتِهِ. لَمْ تَزَلْ كَلِمَةُ الرَّبِّ تَنْمُو وتَكْثُرُ وتَعْتَزُّ وتَثْبُتُ، في بِيعَةِ اللَّهِ الْمُقَدَّسَةِ. آمين.

A psalm of David

مزمور لداود

45:14,15

٤٥ : ١٤، ١٥

*Virgins shall be brought to the king after her: her fellows shall be brought to thee. They shall be brought with gladness and exultation: they shall be led into the king’s temple. Alleluia.

وَلَهُ تَسْجُدُ بَنَاتُ صُورَ بِالْهَدَايَا، وَيَتَلَقَّوْنَ وَجْهَهُ أَغْنِيَاءُ شَعْبِ الأَرْضِ. كُلُّ مَجْدِ ابْنَةِ الْمَلِكِ مِنْ دَاخلٍ. مُشْتَمِلَةٌ مُتَزِيِّنةٌ بِأَشْكَالٍ كَثِيرَةٍ. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint Luke

الإنجيل من لوقا

1:39-56

١ : ٣٩ − ٥٦

*And Mary rising up in those days, went into the hill country with haste into a city of Juda. And she entered into the house of Zachary, and saluted Elizabeth. And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: And she cried out with a loud voice, and said: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. And blessed art thou that hast believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to thee by the Lord. And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Because he that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and holy is his name. And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him. He hath shewed might in his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart. He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the humble. He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. He hath received Israel his servant, being mindful of his mercy: As he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed for ever. And Mary abode with her about three months; and she returned to her own house. Glory be to God forever.

فَقَامَتْ مَرْيَمُ في تِلْكَ الأيامِ وَذَهَبَتْ بِسُرْعَةٍ إلى الْجَبَلِ إلى مَدِينَةِ يَهُوذَا، وَدَخَلَتْ بَيْتَ زَكَرِيَّا وَسَلَّمَتْ عَلَى أَلِيصَابَاتَ. وَحَدَثَ لَمَّا سَمِعَتْ أَلِيصَابَاتُ سَلاَمَ مَرْيَمَ تَحْرَّكَ الْجَنِينُ في بَطْنِهَا، وَامْتَلأَتْ أَلِيصَابَاتُ مِنَ الرُّوحِ الْقُدُسِ، وَصَرَخَتْ بِصَوْتٍ عَظِيمٍ وَقَالَتْ: "مُبَارَكَةٌ أَنْتِ في النِّسَاءِ وَمُبَارَكَةٌ هِيَ ثَمَرَةُ بَطْنِكِ! فَمِنْ أَيْنَ لي هَذَا أنْ تَأْتِيَ أُمُّ رَبِّي إليَّ؟ فَهُوَذَا حِينَ صَارَ صَوْتُ سَلاَمِكِ في أُذُنَيَّ تَحَرَّكَ الْجَنِينُ بِابْتِهَاجٍ في بَطْنِي. فَطُوبَى لِلَّتِي آمَنَتْ أنْ يَتِمَّ مَا قِيلَ لَهَا مِنْ قِبَلِ الرَّبِّ". فَقَالَتْ مَرْيَمُ: "تُعَظِّمُ نَفْسِي الرَّبَّ، وَتَتَهَلَّلُ رُوحِي بِاللَّهِ مُخَلِّصِي، لأنهُ نَظَرَ إلى اتِّضَاعِ أَمَتِهِ. فَهُوَذَا مُنْذُ الآنَ جَمِيعُ الأَجْيَالِ تُطَوِّبُنِي، لأنَّ الْقَدِيرَ صَنَعَ بِي عَظَائِمَ، وَاسْمُهُ قُدُّوسٌ، وَرَحْمَتُهُ إلى جِيلِ الأَجْيَالِ لِلَّذِينَ يَتَّقُونَهُ. صَنَعَ عِزَّةً بِذِرَاعِهِ. شَتَّتَ الْمُسْتَكْبِرِينَ بِفِكْرِ قُلُوبِهِمْ. أَنْزَلَ الأَقْوِيَاءَ عَنِ الْكَرَاسِيِّ وَرَفَعَ الْمُتَّضِعِينَ. أَشْبَعَ الْجِيَاعَ خَيْرَاتٍ وَصَرَفَ الأَغْنِيَاءَ فَارِغِينَ. عَضَّدَ إسْرَائِيلَ فَتَاهُ لِيَذْكُرَ رَحْمَتَهُ، كَمَا كَلَّمَ آباءَنَا، إبْراهِيمَ وَنَسْلَهُ إلى الأبدِ". وَأَقَامَتْ مَرْيَمُ عِنْدَهَا نَحْوَ ثَلاَثَةِ أَشْهُرٍ، وَعَادَتْ إلى بَيْتِهَا. وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.
