Thursday of 2nd week of the Great Lent

يوم الخميس من الاسبوع الثاني من الصوم الكبير

From the book of Deuteronomy

من سفر التثنية لموسى النبي

5:15-22

٥ : ١٥ − ٢٢

*Remember that thou also didst serve in Egypt, and the Lord thy God brought thee out from thence with a strong hand, and a stretched out arm. Therefore hath he commanded thee that thou shouldst observe the sabbath day. Honour thy father and mother, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee, that thou mayst live a long time, and it may be well with thee in the land, which the Lord thy God will give thee. Thou shalt not kill. Neither shalt thou commit adultery. And thou shalt not steal. Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbour. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife: nor his house, nor his field, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is his. These words the Lord spoke to all the multitude of you in the mountain, out of the midst of the fire and the cloud, and the darkness, with a loud voice, adding nothing more: and he wrote them in two tables of stone, which he delivered unto me. Glory be to The Holy Trinity.

وَاذْكُرْ أَنَّكَ كُنْتَ عَبْداً فِي أَرْضِ مِصْرَ فَأَخْرَجَكَ الرَّبُّ إِلهُكَ مِنْ هُنَاكَ بِيَدٍ شَدِيدَةٍ وَذِرَاعٍ مَمْدُودَةٍ. لأَجْلِ ذَلِكَ أَوْصَاكَ الرَّبُّ إِلهُكَ أَنْ تَحْفَظَ يَوْمَ السَّبْتِ أَكْرِمْ أَبَاكَ وَأُمَّكَ كَمَا أَوْصَاكَ الرَّبُّ إِلهُكَ لِتَطُول أَيَّامُكَ وَلِيَكُونَ لكَ خَيْرٌ على الأَرْضِ التِي يُعْطِيكَ الرَّبُّ إِلهُكَ لا تَقْتُل وَلا تَزْنِ وَلا تَسْرِقْ وَلا تَشْهَدْ عَلى قَرِيبِكَ شَهَادَةَ زُورٍ وَلا تَشْتَهِ امْرَأَةَ قَرِيبِكَ وَلا تَشْتَهِ بَيْتَ قَرِيبِكَ وَلا حَقْلهُ وَلا عَبْدَهُ وَلا أَمَتَهُ وَلا ثَوْرَهُ وَلا حِمَارَهُ وَلا كُل مَا لِقَرِيبِكَ هَذِهِ الكَلِمَاتُ كَلمَ بِهَا الرَّبُّ كُل جَمَاعَتِكُمْ فِي الجَبَلِ مِنْ وَسَطِ النَّارِ وَالسَّحَابِ وَالضَّبَابِ وَصَوْتٍ عَظِيمٍ وَلمْ يَزِدْ. وَكَتَبَهَا عَلى لوْحَيْنِ مِنْ حَجَرٍ وَأَعْطَانِي إِيَّاهَا مَجْدَاً لِلثَالُوث الأَقَدَسْ.

From the book of Isaiah

من أشعياء النبي

6:1-12

٦ : ١ − ١٢

*In the year that king Ozias died, I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne high and elevated: and his train filled the temple. Upon it stood the seraphims: the one had six wings, and the other had six wings: with two they covered his face, and with two they covered his feet, and with two they hew. And they cried one to another, and said: Holy, holy, holy, the Lord God of hosts, all the earth is full of his glory. And the lintels of the doors were moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. And I said: Woe is me, because I have held my peace; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people that hath unclean lips, and I have seen with my eyes the King the Lord of hosts. And one of the seraphims flew to me, and in his hand was a live coal, which he had taken with the tongs off the altar. And he touched my mouth, and said: Behold this hath touched thy lips, and thy iniquities shall be taken away, and thy sin shall be cleansed. And I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: Whom shall I send? and who shall go for us? And I said: Lo, here am I, send me. And he said: Go, and thou shalt say to this people: Hearing, hear, and understand not: and see the vision, and know it not. Blind the heart of this people, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes: lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and be converted and I heal them. And I said: How long, O Lord? And he said: Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land shall be left desolate. And the Lord shall remove men far away, and she shall be multiplied that was left in the midst of the earth. Glory be to The Holy Trinity.

A psalm of David

مزمور لداود

27:10

٢٧ : ١٠

*Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: and take care of them, and lift them up for ever. Alleluia.

خَلِّصْ شَعْبَكَ، وَبَارِكْ مِيرَاثَكَ، وَارْعَهُم وَارفعْهُم إِلَى الأَبَدِ. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint Mathew

الإنجيل من متى

11:20-30

١١ : ٢٠ − ٣٠

*Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein were done the most of his miracles, for that they had not done penance. Woe to thee, Corozain, woe to thee, Bethsaida: for if in Tyre and Sidon had been wrought the miracles that have been wrought in you, they had long ago done penance in sackcloth and ashes. But I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment, than for you. And thou Capharnaum, shalt thou be exalted up to heaven? thou shalt go down even unto hell. For if in Sodom had been wrought the miracles that have been wrought in thee, perhaps it had remained unto this day. But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee. 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.

The Pauline Epistle from Romans

البولس من رومية

16:17-27

١٦ : ١٧ − ٢٧

*Now I beseech you, brethren, to mark them who make dissensions and offences contrary to the doctrine which you have learned, and avoid them. For they that are such, serve not Christ our Lord, but their own belly; and by pleasing speeches and good words, seduce the hearts of the innocent. For your obedience is published in every place. I rejoice therefore in you. But I would have you to be wise in good, and simple in evil. And the God of peace crush Satan under your feet speedily. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Timothy, my fellow labourer, saluteth you, and Lucius, and Jason, and Sosipater, my kinsmen. I Tertius, who wrote this epistle, salute you in the Lord. Caius, my host, and the whole church, saluteth you. Erastus, the treasurer of the city, saluteth you, and Quartus, a brother. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. Now to him that is able to establish you, according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret from eternity, (Which now is made manifest by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the precept of the eternal God, for the obedience of faith,) known among all nations; To God the only wise, through Jesus Christ, to whom be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen. The grace of God the Father be with you all. Amen.

The Catholic Epistle from James

الكاثوليكون من يعقوب

3:1-12

٣ : ١ − ١٢

*Be ye not many masters, my brethren, knowing that you receive the greater judgment. For in many things we all offend. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man. He is able also with a bridle to lead about the whole body. For if we put bits into the mouths of horses, that they may obey us, and we turn about their whole body. Behold also ships, whereas they are great, and are driven by strong winds, yet are they turned about with a small helm, whithersoever the force of the governor willeth. Even so the tongue is indeed a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold how small a fire kindleth a great wood. And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is placed among our members, which defileth the whole body, and inflameth the wheel of our nativity, being set on fire by hell. For every nature of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of the rest, is tamed, and hath been tamed, by the nature of man: But the tongue no man can tame, an unquiet evil, full of deadly poison. By it we bless God and the Father: and by it we curse men, who are made after the likeness of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth, out of the same hole, sweet and bitter water? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear grapes; or the vine, figs? So neither can the salt water yield sweet. 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.

لاَ تَكُونُوا مُعَلِّمِينَ كَثِيرِينَ يَا إِخْوَتِي، عَالِمِينَ أَنَّنَا نَأْخُذُ دَيْنُونَةً أَعْظَمَ! لأَنَّنَا فِي أَشْيَاءَ كَثِيرَةٍ نَعْثُرُ جَمِيعُنَا. إِنْ كَانَ أَحَدٌ لاَ يَعْثُرُ فِي الْكَلاَمِ فَذَاكَ رَجُلٌ كَامِلٌ، قَادِرٌ أَنْ يُلْجِمَ كُلَّ الْجَسَدِ أَيْضاً هُوَذَا الْخَيْلُ، نَضَعُ اللُّجُمَ فِي أَفْوَاهِهَا لِكَيْ تُطَاوِعَنَا، فَنُدِيرَ جِسْمَهَا كُلَّهُ هُوَذَا السُّفُنُ أَيْضاً، وَهِيَ عَظِيمَةٌ بِهَذَا الْمِقْدَارِ، وَتَسُوقُهَا رِيَاحٌ عَاصِفَةٌ، تُدِيرُهَا دَفَّةٌ صَغِيرَةٌ جِدّاً إِلَى حَيْثُمَا شَاءَ قَصْدُ الْمُدِيرِ هَكَذَا اللِّسَانُ أَيْضاً، هُوَ عُضْوٌ صَغِيرٌ وَيَفْتَخِرُ مُتَعَظِّماً. هُوَذَا نَارٌ قَلِيلَةٌ، أَيَّ وُقُودٍ تُحْرِقُ؟ فَاللِّسَانُ نَارٌ! عَالَمُ الإِثْمِ. هَكَذَا جُعِلَ فِي أَعْضَائِنَا اللِّسَانُ، الَّذِي يُدَنِّسُ الْجِسْمَ كُلَّهُ، وَيُضْرِمُ دَائِرَةَ الْكَوْنِ، وَيُضْرَمُ مِنْ جَهَنَّمَ لأَنَّ كُلَّ طَبْعٍ لِلْوُحُوشِ وَالطُّيُورِ وَالّزَحَّافَاتِ وَالْبَحْرِيَّاتِ يُذَلَّلُ، وَقَدْ تَذَلَّلَ لِلطَّبْعِ الْبَشَرِيِّ وَأَمَّا اللِّسَانُ فَلاَ يَسْتَطِيعُ أَحَدٌ مِنَ النَّاسِ أَنْ يُذَلِّلَهُ. هُوَ شَرٌّ لاَ يُضْبَطُ، مَمْلُّوٌ سُمّاً مُمِيتاً بِهِ نُبَارِكُ اللَّهَ الآبَ، وَبِهِ نَلْعَنُ النَّاسَ الَّذِينَ قَدْ تَكَوَّنُوا عَلَى شِبْهِ اللَّهِ مِنَ الْفَمِ الْوَاحِدِ تَخْرُجُ بَرَكَةٌ وَلَعْنَةٌ! لاَ يَصْلُحُ يَا إِخْوَتِي أَنْ تَكُونَ هَذِهِ الْأُمُورُ هَكَذَا! أَلَعَلَّ يَنْبُوعاً يُنْبِعُ مِنْ نَفْسِ عَيْنٍ وَاحِدَةٍ الْعَذْبَ وَالْمُرَّ؟ هَلْ تَقْدِرُ يَا إِخْوَتِي تِينَةٌ أَنْ تَصْنَعَ زَيْتُوناً، أَوْ كَرْمَةٌ تِيناً؟ وَلاَ كَذَلِكَ يَنْبُوعٌ يَصْنَعُ مَاءً مَالِحاً وَعَذْباً! لا تُحِبُّوا العَالَمَ ولا الأشْيَاءَ التي في العَالَمِ، لأنَّ العَالَمَ يمْضِي وَشَهْوَتُهُ مَعَهُ، وأمَّا مَنْ يَعملُ مَشِيئَةَ اللهِ فإنه يَثْبُتُ إلى الأبدِ. آمين.

12:12-23

١٢ : ١٢ − ٢٣

*And considering, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, who was surnamed Mark, where many were gathered together and praying. And when he knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel came to hearken, whose name was Rhode. And as soon as she knew Peter's voice, she opened not the gate for joy, but running in she told that Peter stood before the gate. But they said to her: Thou art mad. But she affirmed that it was so. Then said they: It is his angel. But Peter continued knocking. And when they had opened, they saw him, and were astonished. But he beckoning to them with his hand to hold their peace, told how the Lord had brought him out of prison, and he said: Tell these things to James, and to the brethren. And going out, he went into another place. Now when day was come, there was no small stir among the soldiers, what was become of Peter. And when Herod had sought for him, and found him not; having examined the keepers, he commanded they should be put to death; and going down from Judea to Caesarea, he abode there. And he was angry with the Tyrians and the Sidonians. But they with one accord came to him, and having gained Blastus, who was the king's chamberlain, they desired peace, because their countries were nourished by him. And upon a day appointed, Herod being arrayed in kingly apparel, sat in the judgment seat, and made an oration to them. And the people made acclamation, saying: It is the voice of a god, and not of a man. And forthwith an angel of the Lord struck him, because he had not given the honour to God: and being eaten up by worms, he gave up the ghost. The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed, in the holy Church of God. Amen.

ثُمَّ جَاءَ وَهُوَ مُنْتَبِهٌ إِلَى بَيْتِ مَرْيَمَ أُمِّ يُوحَنَّا الْمُلَقَّبِ مَرْقُسَ حَيْثُ كَانَ كَثِيرُونَ مُجْتَمِعِينَ وَهُمْ يُصَلُّونَ فَلَمَّا قَرَعَ بُطْرُسُ بَابَ الدِّهْلِيزِ جَاءَتْ جَارِيَةٌ اسْمُهَا رَوْدَا لِتَسْمَعَ فَلَمَّا عَرَفَتْ صَوْتَ بُطْرُسَ لَمْ تَفْتَحِ الْبَابَ مِنَ الْفَرَحِ بَلْ رَكَضَتْ إِلَى دَاخِلٍ وَأَخْبَرَتْ أَنَّ بُطْرُسَ وَاقِفٌ قُدَّامَ الْبَابِ فَقَالُوا لَهَا: "أَنْتِ تَهْذِينَ!". وَأَمَّا هِيَ فَكَانَتْ تُؤَكِّدُ أَنَّ هَكَذَا هُوَ. فَقَالُوا: "إِنَّهُ مَلاَكُهُ!" وَأَمَّا بُطْرُسُ فَلَبِثَ يَقْرَعُ. فَلَمَّا فَتَحُوا وَرَأَوْهُ انْدَهَشُوا فَأَشَارَ إِلَيْهِمْ بِيَدِهِ لِيَسْكُتُوا وَحَدَّثَهُمْ كَيْفَ أَخْرَجَهُ الرَّبُّ مِنَ السِّجْنِ. وَقَالَ: "أَخْبِرُوا يَعْقُوبَ وَالإِخْوَةَ بِهَذَا". ثُمَّ خَرَجَ وَذَهَبَ إِلَى مَوْضِعٍ آخَرَ فَلَمَّا صَارَ النَّهَارُ حَصَلَ اضْطِرَابٌ لَيْسَ بِقَلِيلٍ بَيْنَ الْعَسْكَرِ: تُرَى مَاذَا جَرَى لِبُطْرُسَ؟ وَأَمَّا هِيرُودُسُ فَلَمَّا طَلَبَهُ وَلَمْ يَجِدْهُ فَحَصَ الْحُرَّاسَ وَأَمَرَ أَنْ يَنْقَادُوا إِلَى الْقَتْلِ. ثُمَّ نَزَلَ مِنَ الْيَهُودِيَّةِ إِلَى قَيْصَرِيَّةَ وَأَقَامَ هُنَاكَ وَكَانَ هِيرُودُسُ سَاخِطاً عَلَى الصُّورِيِّينَ وَالصَّيْدَاوِيِّينَ فَحَضَرُوا إِلَيْهِ بِنَفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ وَاسْتَعْطَفُوا بَلاَسْتُسَ النَّاظِرَ عَلَى مَضْجَعِ الْمَلِكِ ثُمَّ صَارُوا يَلْتَمِسُونَ الْمُصَالَحَةَ لأَنَّ كُورَتَهُمْ تَقْتَاتُ مِنْ كُورَةِ الْمَلِكِ فَفِي يَوْمٍ مُعَيَّنٍ لَبِسَ هِيرُودُسُ الْحُلَّةَ الْمُلُوكِيَّةَ وَجَلَسَ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّ الْمُلْكِ وَجَعَلَ يُخَاطِبُهُمْ فَصَرَخَ الشَّعْبُ: "هَذَا صَوْتُ إِلَهٍ لاَ صَوْتُ إِنْسَانٍ!" فَفِي الْحَالِ ضَرَبَهُ مَلاَكُ الرَّبِّ لأَنَّهُ لَمْ يُعْطِ الْمَجْدَ لِلَّهِ فَصَارَ يَأْكُلُهُ الدُّودُ وَمَاتَ لَمْ تَزَلْ كَلِمَةُ الرَّبِّ تَنْمُو وتَكْثُرُ وتَعْتَزُّ وتَثْبُتُ، في بِيعَةِ اللَّهِ الْمُقَدَّسَةِ. آمين.

٤٧ : ٨، ٩

*Thy right hand is full of righteousness. Let mount Sion rejoice, let the daughters of Judaea exult, because of thy judgments, O Lord. Alleluia.

يمينك مَملُوء عَدْلاً. فَلِيَفْرَحُ جَبَلُ صِهْيَوْنَ وَلِتَتَهَلَل بَنَاتُ اليَهودِية لِأجلِ أَحْكَامِكَ يَا رَبُّ. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint Mathew

الإنجيل من متى

19:16-30

١٩ : ١٦ − ٣٠

*And behold one came and said to him: Good master, what good shall I do that I may have life everlasting? Who said to him: Why asketh thou me concerning good? One is good, God. But if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. He said to him: Which? And Jesus said: Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness. Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. The young man saith to him: All these I have kept from my youth, what is yet wanting to me? Jesus saith to him: If thou wilt be perfect, go sell what thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come follow me. And when the young man had heard this word, he went away sad: for he had great possessions. Then Jesus said to his disciples: Amen, I say to you, that a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say to you: It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven. And when they had heard this, the disciples wondered very much, saying: Who then can be saved? And Jesus beholding, said to them: With men this is impossible: but with God all things are possible. Then Peter answering, said to him: Behold we have left all things, and have followed thee: what therefore shall we have? And Jesus said to them: Amen, I say to you, that you, who have followed me, in the regeneration, when the Son of man shall sit on the seat of his majesty, you also shall sit on twelve seats judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall possess life everlasting. And many that are first, shall be last: and the last shall be first. Glory be to God forever.

وَإِذَا وَاحِدٌ تَقَدَّمَ وَقَالَ لَهُ: "أَيُّهَا الْمُعَلِّمُ الصَّالِحُ أَيَّ صَلاَحٍ أَعْمَلُ لِتَكُونَ لِيَ الْحَيَاةُ الأَبَدِيَّةُ؟" فَقَالَ لَهُ: "لِمَاذَا تَدْعُونِي صَالِحاً؟ لَيْسَ أَحَدٌ صَالِحاً إِلاَّ وَاحِدٌ وَهُوَ اللَّهُ. وَلَكِنْ إِنْ أَرَدْتَ أَنْ تَدْخُلَ الْحَيَاةَ فَاحْفَظِ الْوَصَايَا" قَالَ لَهُ: "أَيَّةَ الْوَصَايَا؟" فَقَالَ يَسُوعُ: "لاَ تَقْتُلْ. لاَ تَزْنِ. لاَ تَسْرِقْ. لاَ تَشْهَدْ بِالزُّورِ أَكْرِمْ أَبَاكَ وَأُمَّكَ وَأَحِبَّ قَرِيبَكَ كَنَفْسِكَ" قَالَ لَهُ الشَّابُّ: "هَذِهِ كُلُّهَا حَفِظْتُهَا مُنْذُ حَدَاثَتِي. فَمَاذَا يُعْوِزُنِي بَعْدُ؟" قَالَ لَهُ يَسُوعُ: "إِنْ أَرَدْتَ أَنْ تَكُونَ كَامِلاً فَاذْهَبْ وَبِعْ أَمْلاَكَكَ وَأَعْطِ الْفُقَرَاءَ فَيَكُونَ لَكَ كَنْزٌ فِي السَّمَاءِ وَتَعَالَ اتْبَعْنِي" فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ الشَّابُّ الْكَلِمَةَ مَضَى حَزِيناً لأَنَّهُ كَانَ ذَا أَمْوَالٍ كَثِيرَةٍ فَقَالَ يَسُوعُ لِتَلاَمِيذِهِ: "الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: إِنَّهُ يَعْسُرُ أَنْ يَدْخُلَ غَنِيٌّ إِلَى مَلَكُوتِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَأَقُولُ لَكُمْ أَيْضاً: إِنَّ مُرُورَ جَمَلٍ مِنْ ثَقْبِ إِبْرَةٍ أَيْسَرُ مِنْ أَنْ يَدْخُلَ غَنِيٌّ إِلَى مَلَكُوتِ اللَّهِ" فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ تَلاَمِيذُهُ بُهِتُوا جِدّاً قَائِلِينَ: "إِذاً مَنْ يَسْتَطِيعُ أَنْ يَخْلُصَ؟" فَنَظَرَ إِلَيْهِمْ يَسُوعُ وَقَالَ: "هَذَا عِنْدَ النَّاسِ غَيْرُ مُسْتَطَاعٍ وَلَكِنْ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ كُلُّ شَيْءٍ مُسْتَطَاعٌ" فَأَجَابَ بُطْرُسُ حِينَئِذٍ: "هَا نَحْنُ قَدْ تَرَكْنَا كُلَّ شَيْءٍ وَتَبِعْنَاكَ. فَمَاذَا يَكُونُ لَنَا؟" فَقَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: "الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: إِنَّكُمْ أَنْتُمُ الَّذِينَ تَبِعْتُمُونِي فِي التَّجْدِيدِ مَتَى جَلَسَ ابْنُ الإِنْسَانِ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّ مَجْدِهِ تَجْلِسُونَ أَنْتُمْ أَيْضاً عَلَى اثْنَيْ عَشَرَ كُرْسِيّاً تَدِينُونَ أَسْبَاطَ إِسْرَائِيلَ الاِثْنَيْ عَشَرَ وَكُلُّ مَنْ تَرَكَ بُيُوتاً أَوْ إِخْوَةً أَوْ أَخَوَاتٍ أَوْ أَباً أَوْ أُمّاً أَوِ امْرَأَةً أَوْ أَوْلاَداً أَوْ حُقُولاً مِنْ أَجْلِ اسْمِي يَأْخُذُ مِئَةَ ضِعْفٍ وَيَرِثُ الْحَيَاةَ الأَبَدِيَّةَ وَلَكِنْ كَثِيرُونَ أَوَّلُونَ يَكُونُونَ آخِرِينَ وَآخِرُونَ أَوَّلِينَ" وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.
