الأحد الثالث من شهر هاتور

A psalm of David

مزمور لداود

85:2-4

٨٥ : ٢ − ٤

*Save thy servant, O God, who hopes in thee. Pity me, O Lord: for to thee will I cry all the day. Rejoice the sold of thy servant. Alleluia.

خَلِّصْ عَبْدَكَ يَا إلهِي، الْمُتكِلَ عَلَيْكَ. ارْحَمْنِي يَارَبُّ فَإِني صَرَخْتُ إِلَيْكَ النّهَارَ كُلَّهُ. فَرِّحْ نَفْسَ عَبْدِكَ. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint Mathew

الإنجيل من متى

11:25-30

١١ : ٢٥ − ٣٠

*At that time Jesus answered and said: I confess to thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them to the little ones. Yea, Father; for so hath it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered to me by my Father. And no one knoweth the Son, but the Father: neither doth any one know the Father, but the Son, and he to whom it shall please the Son to reveal him. Come to me, all you that labour, and are burdened, and I will refresh you. Take up my yoke upon you, and learn of me, because I am meek, and humble of heart: and you shall find rest to your souls. For my yoke is sweet and my burden light. Glory be to God forever.

في ذلِكَ الْوَقْتِ أَجَابَ يَسُوعُ وَقَالَ: "أَشْكُرُكَ أيهَا الآبُ رَبُّ السَّمَاءِ وَالأَرْضِ، لأنكَ أَخْفَيْتَ هَذِهِ عَنِ الْحُكَمَاءِ وَالْفُهَمَاءِ وَأَعْلَنْتَهَا لِلأَطْفَالِ. نَعَمْ أيهَا الآبُ، لأنَّ هَذِهِ هِيَ الْمَسَرَّةُ التي صَارَتْ أَمَامَكَ. كُلُّ شَيْءٍ قَدْ دُفِعَ إلَيَّ مِنْ أبِي، وَلَيْسَ أَحَدٌ يَعْرِفُ الابْنَ إلاَّ الآبُ، وَلا أَحَدٌ يَعْرِفُ الآبَ إلاَّ الابْنُ وَمَنْ أَرَادَ الابْنُ أَنْ يُعْلِنَ لَهُ. تَعَالَوْا إلَيَّ يَا جَمِيعَ الْمُتْعَبِينَ وَالثَّقِيلِي الأَحْمَالِ، وَأَنا أُرِيحُكُمْ. اِحْمِلُوا نِيرِي عَلَيْكُمْ وَتَعَلَّمُوا مِنِّي؛ لأني وَدِيعٌ وَمُتَوَاضِعُ الْقَلْبِ، فَتَجِدُوا رَاحَةً لِنُفُوسِكُمْ. لأنَّ نِيرِي هَيِّنٌ وَحِمْلِي خَفِيفٌ". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

١١٢ : ٢، ٣

*From the rising of the sun to his setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised. The Lord is high above all the nations; his glory is above the heavens. Alleluia.

مِنْ مَشَارِقِ الشَّمْسِ إلى مَغَارِبِهَا، بَارِكُوا اسْمَ الرَّبِّ. الرَّبُّ عَالٍ عَلَى كُلِّ الأُمَمِ، وَعَلَى السَّمَوَاتِ مَجْدُهُ. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint Luke

الإنجيل من لوقا

24:1-12

٢٤ : ١ − ١٢

*And on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came to the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled back from the sepulchre. And going in, they found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as they were astonished in their mind at this, behold, two men stood by them, in shining apparel. And as they were afraid, and bowed down their countenance towards the ground, they said unto them: Why seek you the living with the dead? He is not here, but is risen. Remember how he spoke unto you, when he was in Galilee, Saying: The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. And they remembered his words. And going back from the sepulchre, they told all these things to the eleven, and to all the rest. And it was Mary Magdalen, and Joanna, and Mary of James, and the other women that were with them, who told these things to the apostles. And these words seemed to them as idle tales; and they did not believe them. But Peter rising up, ran to the sepulchre, and stooping down, he saw the linen cloths laid by themselves; and went away wondering in himself at that which was come to pass. Glory be to God forever.

وَفي الأَحَدِ (أَوَّلِ الأُسْبُوعِ) بَاكِراً جِدّاً، أَتَيْنَ إلى الْقَبْرِ وَقَدَّمْنَ الْحَنُوطَ الَّذِي أَعْدَدْنَهُ، وَمَعهُنَّ نِسْوةٌ أُخْريَاتٌ. فَوَجَدْنَ الْحَجَرَ مُدَحْرَجَاً عَنِ الْقَبْرِ، فَدَخَلْنَ وَلَمْ يَجِدْنَ جَسَدَ الرَّبِّ يَسُوعَ. وَحَدَثَ بينَمَا هُنَّ مُتَحَيِّرَاتٌ مِنْ أَجْلِ هَذَا، إذَا رَجُلاَنِ وَقَفَا فَوْقَهُنَّ بِثِيَابٍ بَرَّاقَةٍ. وَإذْ كُنَّ خَائِفَاتٍ وَنَكَّسْنَ وُجُوهَهُنَّ إلى الأَرْضِ، قَالاَ لَهُنَّ: "لِمَاذَا تَطْلُبْنَ الْحَيَّ مَعَ الأَمْوَاتِ؟ لَيْسَ هُوَ هَهُنَا، لَكِنَّهُ قَامَ. اُذْكُرْنَ كَيْفَ كَلَّمَكُنَّ وَهُوَ بَعْدُ في الْجَلِيلِ قَائِلاً: إنَّهُ يَنْبَغِي أنْ يُسَلَّمَ ابْنُ الإنْسَانِ في أَيْدِي أُناسٍ خُطَاةٍ، وَيُصْلَبَ، وَفي الْيَوْمِ الثَّالِثِ يَقُومُ". فَتَذَكَّرْنَ كَلاَمَهُ، وَرَجَعْنَ مِنَ الْقَبْرِ، وَأَخْبَرْنَ الأَحَدَ عَشَرَ وَجَمِيعَ الْبَاقِينَ بِهَذَا كُلِّهِ. وَكَانَتْ مَرْيَمُ الْمَجْدَلِيَّةُ وَيوأنا وَمَرْيَمُ أُمُّ يَعْقُوبَ وَالْبَاقِيَاتُ مَعَهُنَّ، اللَّوَاتِي قُلْنَ هَذَا لِلرُّسُلِ. فَتَرَاءَى هَذَا الْكَلاَمُ لَهُمْ كَالْهَذَيَانِ وَلَمْ يُصَدِّقُوهُنَّ. فَقَامَ بُطْرُسُ وَرَكَضَ إلى الْقَبْرِ، وَتَطَلَّعَ دَاخِلاً وَرَأى الثِّيابَ وَحْدَهَا، فَمَضَى إلى بَيْتِهِ مُتَعَجِّبَاً مِمَّا كَانَ. وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

The Pauline Epistle from Colossians

البولس من تسالونيكي الثانية

1:1-12

١ : ١ − ١٢

*Paul, and Sylvanus, and Timothy, to the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace unto you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. We are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you towards each other, aboundeth: So that we ourselves also glory in you in the churches of God, for your patience and faith, and in all your persecutions and tribulations, which you endure, For an example of the just judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which also you suffer. Seeing it is a just thing with God to repay tribulation to them that trouble you: And to you who are troubled, rest with us when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven, with the angels of his power: In a flame of fire, giving vengeance to them who know not God, and who obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Who shall suffer eternal punishment in destruction, from the face of the Lord, and from the glory of his power: When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be made wonderful in all them who have believed; because our testimony was believed upon you in that day. Wherefore also we pray always for you; that our God would make you worthy of his vocation, and fulfill all the good pleasure of his goodness and the work of faith in power; That the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God, and of the Lord Jesus Christ. The grace of God the Father be with you all. Amen.

The Catholic Epistle from 1 Peter

الكاثوليكون من بطرس الأولى

4:3-11

٤ : ٣ − ١١

*For the time past is sufficient to have fulfilled the will of the Gentiles, for them who have walked in riotousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and unlawful worshipping of idols. Wherein they think it strange, that you run not with them into the same confusion of riotousness, speaking evil of you. Who shall render account to him, who is ready to judge the living and the dead. For, for this cause was the gospel preached also to the dead: that they might be judged indeed according to men, in the flesh; but may live according to God, in the Spirit. But the end of all is at hand. Be prudent therefore, and watch in prayers. But before all things have a constant mutual charity among yourselves: for charity covereth a multitude of sins. Using hospitality one towards another, without murmuring, As every man hath received grace, ministering the same one to another: as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak, as the words of God. If any man minister, let him do it, as of the power, which God administereth: that in all things God may be honoured through Jesus Christ: to whom is glory and empire for ever and ever. Amen. 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.

لأنهُ يَكْفِيكُمُ الزَّمَانُ الَّذِي مَضَى إذْ كُنْتُمْ تَصْنَعُونَ فِيهِ إرَادَةَ الأُمَمِ، وَتَسْلُكُونَ في النَّجَاسَاتِ وَالشَّهَوَاتِ، وَإدْمَانِ الْمُسْكِرَاتِ الْمُتَنَوِّعَةِ، وَالْخَلاعَةِ، وَالدَّنَسِ، وَعِبَادَةِ الأَوْثَانِ الْمَرْذُولَةِ، الأَمْرُ الَّذِي فِيهِ يَسْتَغْرِبُونَ أنكُمْ لَسْتُمْ تَرْكُضُونَ مَعَهُمْ إلى فَيْضِ عَدَمِ الصِّحَّةِ عَيْنِهَا، مُجَدِّفِينَ. الَّذِينَ سَوْفَ يُعْطُونَ جَوَابَاً لِلَّذِي هُوَ عَلَى اسْتِعْدَادٍ أنْ يَدِينَ الأَحْيَاءَ وَالأَمْوَاتَ. فَإنَّهُ لأَجْلِ هَذَا بُشِّرَ الْمَوْتَى أيْضاً، لِكَيْ يُدَانُوا حَسَبَ النَّاسِ بِالْجَسَدِ، وَلكِنْ لِيَحْيَوْا حَسَبَ اللَّهِ بِالرُّوحِ. وَإنَّمَا نِهَايَةُ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِ اقْتَرَبَتْ، فَتَعَقَّلُوا إذاً وَاسْهَرُوا في الصَّلَوَاتِ. وَلكِنْ قَبْلَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ، فَلْتَكُنِ الْمَحَبَّةُ دَائِمَةً فِيكُمْ بَعْضِكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ؛ لأنَّ الْمَحَبَّةَ تَسْتُرُ كَثْرَةً مِنَ الْخَطَايَا. كُونُوا مُحِبِّينَ ضِيافَةِ الْغُرَّبَاءِ بَعْضُكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ بِلاَ تَذَمُّرٍ. وَلِيَخْدُمْ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ الآخَرِينَ بِمَا نَالَ مِنَ الْمَوَاهِبِ بَعْضُكُمْ بَعْضَاً، كَوُكَلاَءَ صَالِحِينَ عَلَى نِعْمَةِ اللَّهِ الْمُتَنَوِّعَةِ. مَنْ يَتَكَلَّمُ فَكَأَقْوَالِ اللَّهِ. وَمَنْ يَخْدُمُ فَكَأنهُ مِنْ قُوَّةٍ يُهَيِّئُهَا اللَّهُ، لِكَيْ يَتَمَجَّدَ اللَّهُ في كُلِّ شَيْءٍ بِيَسُوعَ الْمَسيحِ، الَّذِي لَهُ الْمَجْدُ وَالعِزَّةُ إلى أبدِ الآبِدِينَ. آمِينَ. لا تُحِبُّوا العَالَمَ ولا الأشْيَاءَ التي في العَالَمِ، لأنَّ العَالَمَ يمْضِي وَشَهْوَتُهُ مَعَهُ، وأمَّا مَنْ يَعملُ مَشِيئَةَ اللهِ فإنه يَثْبُتُ إلى الأبدِ. آمين.

5:30-42

٥ : ٣٠ − ٤٢

*The God of our fathers hath raised up Jesus, whom you put to death, hanging him upon a tree. Him hath God exalted with his right hand, to be Prince and Saviour, to give repentance to Israel, and remission of sins. And we are witnesses of these things and the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to all that obey him. When they had heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they thought to put them to death. But one in the council rising up, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, respected by all the people, commanded the men to be put forth a little while. And he said to them: Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what you intend to do, as touching these men. For before these days rose up Theodas, affirming himself to be somebody, to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all that believed him were scattered, and brought to nothing. After this man, rose up Judas of Galilee, in the days of the enrolling, and drew away the people after him: he also perished; and all, even as many as consented to him, were dispersed. And now, therefore, I say to you, refrain from these men, and let them alone; for if this council or this work be of men, it will come to nought; But if it be of God, you cannot overthrow it, lest perhaps you be found even to fight against God. And they consented to him. And calling in the apostles, after they had scourged them, they charged them that they should not speak at all in the name of Jesus; and they dismissed them. And they indeed went from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were accounted worthy to suffer reproach for the name of Jesus. And every day they ceased not in the temple, and from house to house, to teach and preach Christ Jesus. The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed, in the holy Church of God. Amen.

إلَهُ آبائِنَا أَقَامَ يَسُوعَ الَّذِي أَنتُمْ أَلْقَيتُمْ أَيادِيَكُمْ عَلَيْهِ، مُعَلِّقِينَ إيَّاهُ عَلَى خَشَبَةٍ. هَذَا رَفَّعَهُ اللَّهُ بِيَمِينِهِ رَئِيسَاً وَمُخَلِّصاً، لِيُعْطِيَ إسْرَائِيلَ التَّوْبَةَ وَغُفْرَانَ الْخَطَايَا. وَنَحْنُ شُهُودٌ لِهَذِهِ الأَقْوَالِ، وَالرُّوحُ الْقُدُسُ أيْضاً، الَّذِي أَعْطَاهُ اللَّهُ لِلَّذِينَ يُطِيعُونَهُ. فَلَمَّا سَمِعُوا هَذَا صَرُّوا بِأَسْنَانِهِمْ عَلَيْهِمْ، وَكَانُوا يُرِيدُونَ أَنْ يَقْتُلُوهُمْ. فَقَامَ في الْمَجْمَعِ رَجُلٌ فَرِّيسِيٌّ اسْمُهُ غَمَالاَئِيلُ، مُعَلِّمٌ لِلنَّامُوسِ، مُكَرَّمٌ عِنْدَ جَمِيعِ الشَّعْبِ، وَأَمَرَ أنْ يُخْرَجَ الرِّجَالُ قَلِيلاً إلى خَارِجٍ. ثُمَّ قَالَ لَهُمْ: "أَيهَا الرِّجَالُ الإسْرَائِيلِيُّونَ، احْتَرِزُوا لأَنفُسِكُمْ مِنْ جِهَةِ هَؤُلاءِ النَّاسِ فِيمَا أَنْتُمْ مُزْمِعُونَ أَنْ تَفْعَلُوا بِهمْ. لأنهُ قَبْلَ هَذِهِ الأيامِ قَامَ ثُودَاسُ قَائِلاً عَنْ نَفْسِهِ إنَّهُ شَيْءٌ، الَّذِي اتَّبَعَهُ عَدَدٌ مِنَ الرِّجَالِ نَحْوُ أَرْبَعِ مِئَةٍ، الَّذِي قُتِلَ، وَجَمِيعُ الَّذِينَ انْقَادُوا لَهُ تَبَدَّدُوا وَصَارُوا كَلاَ شَيْءٍ. بَعْدَ هَذَا قَامَ يَهُوذَا الْجَلِيلِيُّ في أيامِ الاكْتِتَابِ، وَاجْتَذَبَ وَرَاءَهُ شَعْباً كَثِيراً. فَهَذَا الآخَرُ هَلَكَ أيْضاً، وَجَمِيعُ الَّذِينَ كَانَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ مَائِلَةً لَهُ تَبَدَّدُوا. وَالآنَ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: ابْتَعِدُوا عَنْ هَؤُلاءِ الرِّجَالِ وَاتْرُكُوهُمْ؛ لأنهُ إنْ كَانَ هَذَا الرَّأْيُ أَوْ هَذَا الْعَمَلُ مِنَ النَّاسِ فَسَوْفَ يَنْتَقِضُ، وَإنْ كَانَ مِنَ اللَّهِ فَلاَ يُمْكِنُكُمْ أنْ تَنْقُضُوهُ، لِئَلاَّ تُوجَدُوا أَنْتُم أيْضاً مُحَارِبِينَ لِلَّهِ". فَأَطَاعُوهُ. وَدَعَوُا الرُّسُلَ وَجَلَدُوهُمْ، وَأَوْصَوْهُمْ أنْ لا يُعَلِّمُوا بِاسْمِ يَسُوعَ، ثُمَّ أَطْلَقُوهُمْ. أَمَّا هُمْ فَذَهَبُوا فَرِحِينَ مِنْ أَمَامِ وَجْهِ الْمَجْمَعِ؛ لأنهُمْ حُسِبُوا مُسْتَأْهِلِينَ أنْ يُهَانُوا مِنْ أَجْلِ هَذَا الاسْمِ. وَكَانُوا لا يَزَالُونَ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ في الْهَيْكَلِ وفي كُلِّ بَيْتٍ يُعَلِّمُونَ ويَكْرِزُونَ بِيَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ. لَمْ تَزَلْ كَلِمَةُ الرَّبِّ تَنْمُو وتَكْثُرُ وتَعْتَزُّ وتَثْبُتُ، في بِيعَةِ اللَّهِ الْمُقَدَّسَةِ. آمين.

١٤ : ٢٥ − ٣٥

*And there went great multitudes with him. And turning, he said to them: If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whosoever doth not carry his cross and come after me, cannot be my disciple. For which of you having a mind to build a tower, doth not first sit down, and reckon the charges that are necessary, whether he have wherewithal to finish it: Lest, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that see it begin to mock him, Saying: This man began to build, and was not able to finish. Or what king, about to go to make war against another king, doth not first sit down, and think whether he be able, with ten thousand, to meet him that, with twenty thousand, cometh against him? Or else, whilst the other is yet afar off, sending an embassy, he desireth conditions of peace. So likewise every one of you that doth not renounce all that he possesseth, cannot be my disciple. Salt is good. But if the salt shall lose its savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned? It is neither profitable for the land nor for the dunghill, but shall be cast out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. Glory be to God forever.

وَكَانَ جُمُوعٌ كَثِيرَةٌ سَائِرِينَ مَعَهُ، فَالْتَفَتَ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: "مَنْ يَأتِي إلَيَّ وَلا يُبْغِضُ أباهُ وَأُمَّهُ وَامْرَأتهُ وَأَوْلاَدَهُ وَإخْوَتَهُ وَأَخَوَاتِهِ، حَتَّى نَفْسَهُ أيْضاً، فَلاَ يَقْدِرُ أنْ يَكُونَ لِي تِلْمِيذاً. وَمَنْ لا يَحْمِلُ صَلِيبَهُ وَيَتْبَعُنِي فَلاَ يُمْكِنُهُ أنْ يَصِيرَ لِي تِلْمِيذاً. فَإنَّهُ مَنْ مِنْكُمْ يُرِيدُ أنْ يَبْنِيَ بُرْجاً أَفَلا يَجْلِسُ أوَّلاً وَيَحْسُبُ النَّفَقَةَ، وَهَلْ عِنْدَهُ مَا يُكَمِّلُهُ؟ لِئَلاَّ يَضَعَ الأسَاسَ وَلا يَقْدِرَ أنْ يُكَمِّلَهُ، فَيَبْتَدِئَ جَمِيعُ النَّاظِرِينَ يَهْزَأُونَ بِهِ، قَائِلِينَ: إنَّ هَذَا الرَّجُلَ ابْتَدَأَ يَبْنِي وَلَمْ يَقْدِرْ أنْ يُكَمِّلَهُ. أوْ أَيُّ مَلِكٍ يَمْضِي إلى مُحَارَبَةِ مَلِكٍ آخَرَ، أَفَلاَ يَجْلِسُ أوَّلاً وَيَتَشَاوَرُ: هَلْ يَقْدِرُ أنْ يُلاقِيَ بِعَشَرَةِ آلافٍ الَّذِي يَأْتِي عَلَيْهِ بِعِشْرِينَ أَلْفاً؟ وَإلاَّ فَمَا دَامَ بَعِيداً عَنْهُ، يُرْسِلُ شَفَاعَةً طَالِبَاً سِلْمَاً. فَهكَذَا كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ مِنْكُمْ إنْ لَمْ يَتْرُكْ جَمِيعَ أمْوَالِهِ، فَلاَ يَقْدِرُ أنْ يَصِيرَ لِي تِلْمِيذاً. الْمِلْحُ جَيِّدٌ. فَإنْ فَسَدَ الْمِلْحُ، فَبِمَاذا يُمَلَّحُ؟ فَلاَ لأرْضٍ يَصْلُحُ وَلا لِمَزْبَلَةٍ، بَلْ يُلْقَى خَارِجاً. مَنْ لَهُ أُذُنَانِ لِلسَّمْعِ، فَلْيَسْمَعْ". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.
