A psalm of David

مزمور لداود

97:8

٩٧ : ٨

*Worship him, all ye his angels. Sion heard and rejoiced; and the daughters of Judea exulted, because of thy judgments, O Lord. Alleluia.

اسْجُدُوا لَهُ يَا جَمِيعَ مَلائِكَتِهِ. سَمِعَتْ صِهْيَوْنُ فَفَرِحَتْ، وَتَهلَّلَتْ بَنَاتُ الْيَهُودِيَّةِ، مِنْ أَجْلِ أَحْكَامِكَ يَارَبُّ. 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 هذِهِ عَنِ الْحُكَمَاءِ وَالْفُهَمَاءِ وَأَعْلَنْتَهَا لِلأَطْفَالِ. نَعَمْ أيهَا الآبُ، لأنَّ هذِهِ هيَ 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، وَأنا أُرِيحُكُمْ. اِحْمِلُوا نِيرِي عَلَيْكُمْ وَتَعَلَّمُوا مِنِّي؛ لأني وَدِيعٌ وَمُتَوَاضِعُ الْقَلْبِ، فَتَجِدُوا رَاحَةً لِنُفُوسِكُمْ. لأنَّ نِيرِي هَيِّنٌ وَحِمْلِي خَفِيفٌ". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

138:1,2

١٣٨ : ١، ٢

*I will give thee thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart; and I will sing psalms to thee before the angels; for thou hast heard all the words of my mouth. I will worship toward thy holy temple, and give thanks to thy name, on account of thy mercy and thy truth; for thou hast magnified thy holy name above every thing. Alleluia.

أَعْتَرِفُ لَكَ يَارَبُّ مِنْ كُلِّ قَلْبِي؛ لأنكَ اسْتَمَعْتَ كُلَّ كَلِمَاتِ فَمِي. أمَامَ الْمَلائِكَةِ أُرَتِّلُ لَكَ. وَأَسْجُدُ قُدَّامَ هَيكَلِكَ الْمُقَدَّسِ. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint Mathew

الإنجيل من متى

12:1-8

١٢ : ١ − ٨

*At that time Jesus went through the corn on the sabbath: and his disciples being hungry, began to pluck the ears, and to eat. And the Pharisees seeing them, said to him: Behold thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days. But he said to them: Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, and they that were with him: How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the loaves of proposition, which it was not lawful for him to eat, nor for them that were with him, but for the priests only? Or have ye not read in the law, that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple break the sabbath, and are without blame? But I tell you that there is here a greater than the temple. And if you knew what this meaneth: I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: you would never have condemned the innocent. For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath. Glory be to God forever.

في ذلِكَ الْوَقْتِ ذَهَبَ يَسُوعُ في السَّبْتِ بَيْنَ الزُّرُوعِ، فَجَاعَ تَلامِيذُهُ وَابْتَدَأُوا يَقْطِفُونَ سَنَابِلَ وَيَأْكُلُونَ. فَالْفَرِّيسِيُّونَ لَمَّا نَظَرُوا قَالُوا لَهُ: "هُوَذَا تَلاَمِيذُكَ يَفْعَلُونَ ما لا يَحِلُّ فِعْلُهُ في السَّبْتِ!" فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: "أَمَا قَرَأْتُمْ مَا فَعَلَهُ دَاوُدُ حِينَ جَاعَ هُوَ وَالَّذِينَ مَعَهُ؟ كَيْفَ دَخَلَ بَيْتَ اللَّهِ وَأَكَلَ خُبْزَ التَّقْدِمَةِ الَّذِي لا يَحِلُّ أَكْلُهُ لَهُ وَلا لِلَّذِينَ مَعَهُ، بَلْ لِلْكَهَنَةِ وَحْدَهُمْ. أَو أَمَا قَرَأْتُمْ في التَّوْرَاةِ أنَّ الْكَهَنَةَ في السُّبُوتِ في الْهَيْكَلِ يُدَنِّسُونَ السَّبْتَ وَلا خَطِيَّةَ عَليهمْ؟ وَلكِنْ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: إنَّ هَهُنَا أَعْظَمَ مِنَ الْهَيْكَلِ. فَلَوْ عَلِمْتُمْ مَا هُوَ: إنِّي أُرِيدُ رَحْمَةً لا ذَبِيحَةً، لَمَا حَكَمْتُمْ عَلَى الأَبْرِيَاءِ، فَإنَّ ابْنَ الإنْسَانِ هُوَ رَبُّ السَّبْتِ أيْضاً". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

The Pauline Epistle from 1 Timothy

البولس من تِيمُوثَاوُسَ الأولى

5:17-6:2

٥ : ١٧ − ٦ : ٢

*Let the priests that rule well, be esteemed worthy of double honour: especially they who labour in the word and doctrine: For the scripture saith: Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn: and, The labourer is worthy of his reward. Against a priest receive not an accusation, but under two or three witnesses. Them that sin reprove before all: that the rest also may have fear. I charge thee before God, and Christ Jesus, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing by declining to either side. Impose not hands lightly upon any man, neither be partaker of other men's sins. Keep thyself chaste. Do not still drink water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake, and thy frequent infirmities. Some men's sins are manifest, going before to judgment: and some men they follow after. In like manner also good deeds are manifest: and they that are otherwise, cannot be hid. Duties of servants. The danger of covetousness. Lessons for the rich. Whosoever are servants under the yoke, let them count their masters worthy of all honour; lest the name of the Lord and his doctrine be blasphemed. But they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren; but serve them the rather, because they are faithful and beloved, who are partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort. The grace of God the Father be with you all. Amen.

أمَّا القُسُوسُ الْمُدَبِّرُونَ حَسَناً فَلْيَسْتَحِقُّوا كَرَامَةً مُضَاعَفَةً، وَلا سِيَّمَا الذِينَ يَتْعَبُونَ في الْكَلِمَةِ وَالتَّعْلِيمِ، لأنَّ الْكِتَابَ يَقُولُ: "لا تَكُمَّ ثَوْراً دَارِساً "، وَ" الْفَاعِلُ مُسْتَحِقٌّ أُجْرَتَهُ". لا تَقْبَلْ شِكَايَةً عَلَى قَسٍّ إلاَّ عَلَى شَاهِدَيْنِ أَوْ ثَلاَثَةِ شُهُودٍ. الذِينَ يُخْطِئُونَ وَبِّخْهُمْ أَمَامَ الْجَمِيعِ، لِكَيْ يَكُونَ عِنْدَ الْبَاقِينَ خَوْفٌ. أُنَاشِدُكَ أَمَامَ اللَّهِ وَرَبِّنَا يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ وَمَلائِكَتِهِ الْمُخْتَارِينَ، أنْ تَحْفَظَ هذَا بِدُونِ تَبْرِيرِ أَحَدٍ قَبْلَ الْحُكْمِ وَلا تَصْنَعَ شَيْئاً بِمُحَابَاةٍ. لا تَضَعْ يَداً عَلَى أَحَدٍ بِالْعَجَلَةِ، وَلا تَشْتَرِكْ في خَطَايَا غَرِيبَةٍ. اِحْفَظْ نَفْسَكَ طَاهِراً. لا تَشْرَبْ مَاءً بَعْدُ، بَلِ اشْرَبْ خَمْراً قَلِيلاً مِنْ أَجْلِ مَعِدَتِكَ وَأَوْجَاعِكَ الْكَثِيرَةِ. خَطَايَا بَعْضِ النَّاسِ وَاضِحَةٌ تَتَقَدَّمُ إلى الْقَضَاءِ، وَأمَّا الْبَعْضُ الآخَرُ فَخَطَايَاهمْ تَتْبَعُهُمْ. كَذلِكَ أيْضاً الأَعْمَالُ الصَّالِحَةُ وَاضِحَةٌ، وَالأُخْرَى التي هِيَ خِلاَفُ ذلِكَ لا يُمْكِنُ أنْ تَخْتَفِي. الْعَبِيدُ الَّذِينَ هُمْ تَحْتَ نِيرٍ فَلْيُكْرِمُوا سَادَتَهُمْ بِكُلِّ كَرَامَةٍ، لِئَلاَّ يُفْتَرَى عَلَى اسْمِ اللَّهِ وَالتَّعَلِيمِ. وَالَّذِينَ لَهُمْ سَادَةٌ مُؤْمِنُونَ، لا يَسْتَهِينُوا بِهِمْ لأنهُمْ إخْوَةٌ، بَلْ لِيَخْدِمُوهُمْ أَكْثَرَ؛ لأنَّ الَّذِينَ يَتَمَسَّكُونَ بِفِعْلِ الإحْسَانِ، هُمْ مُؤْمِنُونَ وَأَحِبَّاءُ. عَلِّمْ وَعِظْ بِهذَا. نعمةُ اللَّهِ الآبِ فَلْتَحِلَّ عَلَى أرواحِنا يا آبائي وإخْوَتي. آمين.

The Catholic Epistle from 1 Peter

الكاثوليكون من بطرس الأولى

5:1-14

٥ : ١ − ١٤

*The ancients therefore that are among you, I beseech, who am myself also an ancient, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ: as also a partaker of that glory which is to be revealed in time to come: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking care of it, not by constraint, but willingly, according to God: not for filthy lucre's sake, but voluntarily: Neither as lording it over the clergy, but being made a pattern of the flock from the heart. And when the prince of pastors shall appear, you shall receive a never fading crown of glory. In like manner, ye young men, be subject to the ancients. And do you all insinuate humility one to another, for God resisteth the proud, but to the humble he giveth grace. Be you humbled therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in the time of visitation: Casting all your care upon him, for he hath care of you. Be sober and watch: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, goeth about seeking whom he may devour. Whom resist ye, strong in faith: knowing that the same affliction befalls your brethren who are in the world. But the God of all grace, who hath called us into his eternal glory in Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a little, will himself perfect you, and confirm you, and establish you. To him be glory and empire for ever and ever. Amen. By Sylvanus, a faithful brother unto you, as I think, I have written briefly: beseeching and testifying that this is the true grace of God, wherein you stand. The church that is in Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you: and so doth my son Mark. Salute one another with a holy kiss. Grace be to all you, who are in Christ Jesus. 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.

أَطْلُبُ إلى الشُّيُوخِ الَّذِينَ بَيْنَكُمْ، أنَا الشَّيْخَ شَرِيكَكُمْ، وَالشَّاهِدَ لآلاَمِ الْمَسِيحِ، وَشَرِيكَ الْمَجْدِ الْعَتِيدِ أنْ يُعْلَنَ، ارْعَوْا رَعِيَّةَ اللَّهِ التي بَيْنَكُمْ وَتَعَاهَدُوهَا، لا بِالْقَهْرِ بَلْ بِالاخْتِيَارِ، كَمثلِ اللَّهِ وَلا بِبُخْلٍ بَلْ بِنَشَاطٍ، وَلا كَمَنْ يَتَسَلَّطُ عَلَى الْمَوَارِيثِ، بَلْ صَائِرِينَ أَمْثِلَةً لِلرَّعِيَّةِ. وَمَتَى ظَهَرَ رَئِيسُ الرُّعَاةِ تَنَالُونَ إكْلِيلَ الْمَجْدِ الَّذِي لا يَضْمَحِلُّ. كَذلِكَ أَنْتُمْ أيهَا الشُّبَّانُ، اخْضَعُوا لِلشُّيُوخِ، وَكُونُوا جَمِيعاً مُتَسَرْبِلِينَ بِالتَّوَاضُعِ بَعْضُكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ، لأنَّ اللَّهَ يُقَاوِمُ الْمُسْتَكْبِرِينَ، وَيُعْطِي نِعْمَةً لِلْمُتَوَاضِعِينَ. فَتَوَاضَعُوا تَحْتَ يَدِ اللَّهِ الْقَوِيَّةِ لِكَيْ يَرْفَعَكُمْ في زَمَانِ الافْتِقَادِ، مُلْقِينَ كُلَّ هَمِّكُمْ عَلَيْهِ؛ لأنهُ هُوَ يَعْتَنِي بِكُمْ. كُونُوا مُتَيَقِّظِينَ وَاسْهَرُوا. لأنَّ إبْلِيسَ عَدُوَّكُمْ يَجُولُ كَأَسَدٍ زَائِرٍ، يَلْتَمِسُ مَنْ يَبْتَلِعُهُ. فَقَاوِمُوهُ، رَاسِخِينَ في الإيمَانِ، عَالِمِينَ أنَّ نَفْسَ هذِهِ الآلامِ تُجْرَى عَلَى إخْوَتِكُمُ الَّذِينَ في الْعَالَمِ. وَإلهُ كُلِّ نِعْمَةٍ الَّذِي دَعَاكُمْ إلى مَجْدِهِ الأبدِيِّ في الْمَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ، بَعْدَمَا تَأَلَّمْتُمْ يَسِيراً، هُوَ يُهَيِّئُكُمْ، وَيُثَبِّتُكُمْ، وَيُقَوِّيكُمْ، وَيُمَكِّنُكُمْ. لَهُ السُّلْطَانُ وَالْمَجْدُ إلى الآبادِ. آمِين. بِيَدِ سِلْوَانُسَ الأخِ الأمِينِ كَمَا أَظُنُّ كَتَبْتُ إلَيْكُمْ بِكَلِمَاتٍ قَلِيلَةٍ وَاعِظاً وَشَاهِداً، أنَّ هذِهِ هيَ نِعْمَةُ اللَّهِ بِالْحَقِّ التي فِيهَا تَقُومُونَ. تُسَلِّمُ عَلَيْكُمُ الصَّدِيقَةُ الْمُخْتَارَةُ التي في بَابِلَ، وَمَرْقُسُ ابْنِي. سَلِّمُوا بَعْضُكُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ بِقُبْلَةِ الْمَحَبَّةِ الْمُقدَّسَةِ. السَّلاَمُ لَكُمْ جَمِيعَاً أيهَا الَّذِينَ في الْمَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ. لا تُحِبُّوا العَالَمَ ولا الأشْيَاءَ التي في العَالَمِ، لأنَّ العَالَمَ يمْضِي وَشَهْوَتُهُ مَعَهُ، وأمَّا مَنْ يَعملُ مَشِيئَةَ اللهِ فإنه يَثْبُتُ إلى الأبدِ. آمين.

15:6-12

١٥ : ٦ − ١٢

*And the apostles and ancients assembled to consider of this matter. And when there had been much disputing, Peter, rising up, said to them: Men, brethren, you know, that in former days God made choice among us, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the gospel, and believe. And God, who knoweth the hearts, gave testimony, giving unto them the Holy Ghost, as well as to us; And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith. Now therefore, why tempt you God to put a yoke upon the necks of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear? But by the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, we believe to be saved, in like manner as they also. And all the multitude held their peace; and they heard Barnabas and Paul telling what great signs and wonders God had wrought among the Gentiles by them. The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed, in the holy Church of God. Amen.

فَاجْتَمَعَ الرُّسُلُ والأحْبَارُ لِيَنْظُرُوا في هذَا الأَمْرِ. فَبَعْدَمَا حَصَلَتْ مُنَاظَرَةٌ كَثِيرَةٌ قَامَ بُطْرُسُ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: "أيهَا الرِّجَالُ الإخْوَةُ، أَنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ أنهُ مُنْذُ أيامٍ قَدِيمَةٍ اخْتَارَ اللَّهُ بَيْنَكُمْ أنهُ بِفَمِي يَسْمَعُ الأُمَمُ كَلِمَةَ الإنْجِيلِ وَيُؤْمِنُونَ. وَاللَّهُ الْعَارِفُ الْقُلُوبَ، قَدْ شَهِدَ لَهُمْ مُعْطِياً لَهُمُ الرُّوحَ الْقُدُسَ كَمَا لَنَا أيْضاً. وَلَمْ يُمَيِّزْ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَهُمْ بِشَيْءٍ، إذْ قَدْ طَهَّرَ بِالإيمَانِ قُلُوبَهُمْ. فَالآنَ لِمَاذا تُجَرِّبُونَ اللَّهَ بِوَضْعِ نِيرٍ عَلَى عُنُقِ التَّلامِيذِ، الَّذِي لَمْ يَسْتَطِعْ آبَاؤُنَا وَلا نَحْنُ أنْ نَحْمِلَهُ؟ لكِنْ بِنِعْمَةِ رَبِّنَا يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ نُؤْمِنُ أنْ نَخْلُصَ كَمَا أُولئِكَ أيْضاً". فَسَكَتَ الْجُمْهُورُ كُلُّهُ. وَكَانُوا يَسْمَعُونَ بَرْنَابَا وَبُولُسَ يُحَدِّثَانِ بِجَمِيعِ مَا صَنَعَ اللَّهُ مِنَ الآياتِ وَالْعَجَائِبِ في الأُمَمِ بِوَاسِطَتِهِمَا. لَمْ تَزَلْ كَلِمَةُ الرَّبِّ تَنْمُو وتَكْثُرُ وتَعْتَزُّ وتَثْبُتُ، في بِيعَةِ اللَّهِ الْمُقَدَّسَةِ. آمين.

The Gospel according to Saint John

الإنجيل من يوحنا

1:1-17

١ : ١ − ١٧

*In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to give testimony of the light, that all men might believe through him. He was not the light, but was to give testimony of the light. That was the true light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, he gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in his name. Who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we saw his glory, the glory as it were of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John beareth witness of him, and crieth out, saying: This was he of whom I spoke: He that shall come after me, is preferred before me: because he was before me. And of his fulness we all have received, and grace for grace. For the law was given by Moses; grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. Glory be to God forever.

في الْبَدْءِ كَانَ الْكَلِمَةُ، وَالْكَلِمَةُ كَانَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ، وَكَانَ الْكَلِمَةُ اللَّهَ. هذَا كَانَ في الْبَدْءِ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ. كُلُّ شَيْءٍ بِهِ كَانَ، وَبِغَيْرِهِ لَمْ يَكُنْ شَيْءٌ مِمَّا كَانَ. فِيهِ كَانَت الْحَيَاةُ، وَالْحَيَاةُ كَانَتْ نُورَ النَّاسِ، وَالنُّورُ أَضَاءَ في الظُّلْمَةِ، وَالظُّلْمَةُ لَمْ تُدْرِكْهُ. كَانَ إنْسَانٌ مُرْسَلٌ مِنَ اللَّهِ اسْمُهُ يُوحَنَّا. هذَا جَاءَ لِلشَّهَادَةِ لِيَشْهَدَ لِلنُّورِ، لِكَيْ يُؤْمِنَ الْكُلُّ بِوَاسِطَتِهِ. لَمْ يَكُنْ هُوَ النُّورَ، بَلْ لِيَشْهَدَ لِلنُّورِ. كَانَ النُّورُ الْحَقِيقِيُّ الَّذِي يُنِيرُ كُلَّ إنْسَانٍ آتِيَاً إلى الْعَالَمِ. كَانَ في الْعَالَمِ، وَكُوِّنَ الْعَالَمُ بِهِ، وَلَمْ يَعْرِفْهُ الْعَالَمُ. إلى خَاصَّتِهِ جَاءَ، وَخَاصَّتُهُ لَمْ تَقْبَلْهُ. وَأمَّا كُلُّ الَّذِينَ قَبِلُوهُ فَأَعْطَاهُمْ سُلْطَاناً أنْ يَصِيرُوا أَوْلادَ اللَّهِ، الَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِاسْمِهِ. الَّذِينَ وُلِدُوا لَيْسَ مِنْ دَمٍ، وَلا مِنْ مَشِيئَةِ جَسَدٍ، وَلا مِنْ مَشِيئَةِ رَجُلٍ، بَلْ مِنَ اللَّهِ وُلِدُوا. وَالْكَلِمَةُ صَارَ جَسَداً وَحَلَّ فِينَا، وَرَأَيْنَا مَجْدَهُ، كَمَجْدِ ابْنٍ وَحِيدٍ لأَبِيهِ، مَمْلُوءاً نِعْمَةً وَحَقّاً. يُوحَنَّا شَهِدَ لَهُ وَنَادَى قَائِلاً: "هذَا هُوَ الَّذِي قُلْتُ عَنْهُ: إنَّ الَّذِي يَأْتِي بَعْدِي صَارَ قُدَّامِي، لأنهُ كَانَ قَبْلِي". لأنهُ مِنْ مِلْئِهِ نَحْنُ جَمِيعاً أَخَذْنا، وَنِعْمَةً عِوَضَاً عَنْ نِعْمَةٍ. لأنَّ النَّامُوسَ بِمُوسَى أُعْطِيَ، أَمَّا النِّعْمَةُ وَالْحَقُّ فَبِيَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ صَارَا. وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.
