*Let them say so who have been redeemed by the Lord, whom he has redeemed from the hand of the enemy; and gathered them out of the countries, from the east, and west, and north, and south. Alleluia.

The Gospel according to Saint Luke

الإنجيل من لوقا

8:40-56

٨ : ٤٠ − ٥٦

*And it came to pass, that when Jesus was returned, the multitude received him: for they were all waiting for him. And behold there came a man whose name was Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at the feet of Jesus, beseeching him that he would come into his house: For he had an only daughter, almost twelve years old, and she was dying. And it happened as he went, that he was thronged by the multitudes. And there was a certain woman having an issue of blood twelve years, who had bestowed all her substance on physicians, and could not be healed by any. She came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment; and immediately the issue of her blood stopped. And Jesus said: Who is it that touched me? And all denying, Peter and they that were with him said: Master, the multitudes throng and press thee, and dost thou say, Who touched me? And Jesus said: Somebody hath touched me; for I know that virtue is gone out from me. And the woman seeing that she was not hid, came trembling, and fell down before his feet, and declared before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was immediately healed. But he said to her: Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go thy way in peace. As he was yet speaking, there cometh one to the ruler of the synagogue, saying to him: Thy daughter is dead, trouble him not. And Jesus hearing this word, answered the father of the maid: Fear not; believe only, and she shall be safe. And when he was come to the house, he suffered not any man to go in with him, but Peter and James and John, and the father and mother of the maiden. And all wept and mourned for her. But he said: Weep not; the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead. But he taking her by the hand, cried out, saying: Maid, arise. And her spirit returned, and she arose immediately. And he bid them give her to eat. And her parents were astonished, whom he charged to tell no man what was done. Glory be to God forever.

*وَلَمَّا رَجَعَ يَسُوعُ قَبِلَهُ الْجَمْعُ لأَنَّهُمْ كَانُوا جَمِيعُهُمْ يَنْتَظِرُونَهُ. وَإِذَا رَجُلٌ اسْمُهُ يَايِرُسُ قَدْ جَاءَ، وَكَانَ رَئِيسَ الْمَجْمَعِ، فَوَقَعَ عِنْدَ قَدَمَيْ يَسُوعَ وَطَلَبَ إِلَيْهِ أَنْ يَدْخُلَ بَيْتَهُ، لأَنَّهُ كَانَ لَهُ بِنْتٌ وَحِيدَةٌ لَهَا نَحْوُ اثْنَتَيْ عَشْرَةَ سَنَةً، وَكَانَتْ فِي حَالِ الْمَوْتِ. فَفِيمَا هُوَ مُنْطَلِقٌ زَحَمَتْهُ الْجُمُوعُ. وَامْرَأَةٌ بِنَزْفِ دَمٍ مُنْذُ اثْنَتَيْ عَشْرَةَ سَنَةً، وَقَدْ أَنْفَقَتْ كُلَّ مَعِيشَتِهَا لِلأَطِبَّاءِ، وَلَمْ تَقْدِرْ أَنْ تُشْفَى مِنْ أَحَدٍ، جَاءَتْ مِنْ وَرَائِهِ وَلَمَسَتْ هُدْبَ ثَوْبِهِ. فَفِي الْحَالِ وَقَفَ نَزْفُ دَمِهَا. فَقَالَ يَسُوعُ:«مَنِ الَّذِي لَمَسَنِي؟» وَإِذْ كَانَ الْجَمِيعُ يُنْكِرُونَ، قَالَ بُطْرُسُ وَالَّذِينَ مَعَهُ: «يَامُعَلِّمُ، الْجُمُوعُ يُضَيِّقُونَ عَلَيْكَ وَيَزْحَمُونَكَ، وَتَقُولُ: مَنِ الَّذِي لَمَسَنِي؟» فَقَالَ يَسُوعُ:«قَدْ لَمَسَنِي وَاحِدٌ، لأَنِّي عَلِمْتُ أَنَّ قُوَّةً قَدْ خَرَجَتْ مِنِّي». فَلَمَّا رَأَتِ الْمَرْأَةُ أَنَّهَا لَمْ تَخْتَفِ، جَاءَتْ مُرْتَعِدَةً وَخَرَّتْ لَهُ، وَأَخْبَرَتْهُ قُدَّامَ جَمِيعِ الشَّعْبِ لأَيِّ سَبَبٍ لَمَسَتْهُ، وَكَيْفَ بَرِئَتْ فِي الْحَالِ. فَقَالَ لَهَا:«ثِقِي يَا ابْنَةُ، إِيمَانُكِ قَدْ شَفَاكِ، اِذْهَبِي بِسَلاَمٍ». وَبَيْنَمَا هُوَ يَتَكَلَّمُ، جَاءَ وَاحِدٌ مِنْ دَارِ رَئِيسِ الْمَجْمَعِ قَائِلاً لَهُ:«قَدْ مَاتَتِ ابْنَتُكَ. لاَ تُتْعِبِ الْمُعَلِّمَ». فَسَمِعَ يَسُوعُ، وَأَجَابَهُ قِائِلاً: «لاَتَخَفْ! آمِنْ فَقَطْ، فَهِيَ تُشْفَى». فَلَمَّا جَاءَ إِلَى الْبَيْتِ لَمْ يَدَعْ أَحَدًا يَدْخُلُ إِلاَّ بُطْرُسَ وَيَعْقُوبَ وَيُوحَنَّا، وَأَبَا الصَّبِيَّةِ وَأُمَّهَا. وَكَانَ الْجَمِيعُ يَبْكُونَ عَلَيْهَا وَيَلْطِمُونَ. فَقَالَ:«لاَ تَبْكُوا. لَمْ تَمُتْ لكِنَّهَا نَائِمَةٌ». فَضَحِكُوا عَلَيْهِ، عَارِفِينَ أَنَّهَا مَاتَتْ. فَأَخْرَجَ الْجَمِيعَ خَارِجًا، وَأَمْسَكَ بِيَدِهَا وَنَادَى قَائِلاً:«يَا صَبِيَّةُ، قُومِي!». فَرَجَعَتْ رُوحُهَا وَقَامَتْ فِي الْحَالِ. فَأَمَرَ أَنْ تُعْطَى لِتَأْكُلَ. فَبُهِتَ وَالِدَاهَا. فَأَوْصَاهُمَا أَنْ لاَ يَقُولاَ لأَحَدٍ عَمَّا كَانَ. وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

17:1-13

١٧ : ١ − ١٣

*These things Jesus spoke, and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said: Father, the hour is come, glorify thy Son, that thy Son may glorify thee. As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he may give eternal life to all whom thou hast given him. Now this is eternal life: That they may know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth; I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now glorify thou me, O Father, with thyself, with the glory which I had, before the world was, with thee. I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou hast given me out of the world. Thine they were, and to me thou gavest them; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known, that all things which thou hast given me, are from thee: Because the words which thou gavest me, I have given to them; and they have received them, and have known in very deed that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them whom thou hast given me: because they are thine: And all my things are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. And now I am not in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name whom thou has given me; that they may be one, as we also are. While I was with them, I kept them in thy name. Those whom thou gavest me have I kept; and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition, that the scripture may be fulfilled. And now I come to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy filled in themselves. Glory be to God forever.

*تَكَلَّمَ يَسُوعُ بِهذَا وَرَفَعَ عَيْنَيْهِ نَحْوَ السَّمَاءِ وَقَالَ:«أَيُّهَا الآبُ، قَدْ أَتَتِ السَّاعَةُ. مَجِّدِ ابْنَكَ لِيُمَجِّدَكَ ابْنُكَ أَيْضًا، إِذْ أَعْطَيْتَهُ سُلْطَانًا عَلَى كُلِّ جَسَدٍ لِيُعْطِيَ حَيَاةً أَبَدِيَّةً لِكُلِّ مَنْ أَعْطَيْتَهُ. وَهذِهِ هِيَ الْحَيَاةُ الأَبَدِيَّةُ: أَنْ يَعْرِفُوكَ أَنْتَ الإِلهَ الْحَقِيقِيَّ وَحْدَكَ وَيَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلْتَهُ. أَنَا مَجَّدْتُكَ عَلَى الأَرْضِ. الْعَمَلَ الَّذِي أَعْطَيْتَنِي لأَعْمَلَ قَدْ أَكْمَلْتُهُ. وَالآنَ مَجِّدْنِي أَنْتَ أَيُّهَا الآبُ عِنْدَ ذَاتِكَ بِالْمَجْدِ الَّذِي كَانَ لِي عِنْدَكَ قَبْلَ كَوْنِ الْعَالَمِ. «أَنَا أَظْهَرْتُ اسْمَكَ لِلنَّاسِ الَّذِينَ أَعْطَيْتَنِي مِنَ الْعَالَمِ. كَانُوا لَكَ وَأَعْطَيْتَهُمْ لِي، وَقَدْ حَفِظُوا كَلاَمَكَ. وَالآنَ عَلِمُوا أَنَّ كُلَّ مَا أَعْطَيْتَنِي هُوَ مِنْ عِنْدِكَ، لأَنَّ الْكَلاَمَ الَّذِي أَعْطَيْتَنِي قَدْ أَعْطَيْتُهُمْ، وَهُمْ قَبِلُوا وَعَلِمُوا يَقِينًا أَنِّي خَرَجْتُ مِنْ عِنْدِكَ، وَآمَنُوا أَنَّكَ أَنْتَ أَرْسَلْتَنِي. مِنْ أَجْلِهِمْ أَنَا أَسْأَلُ. لَسْتُ أَسْأَلُ مِنْ أَجْلِ الْعَالَمِ، بَلْ مِنْ أَجْلِ الَّذِينَ أَعْطَيْتَنِي لأَنَّهُمْ لَكَ. وَكُلُّ مَا هُوَ لِي فَهُوَ لَكَ، وَمَا هُوَ لَكَ فَهُوَ لِي، وَأَنَا مُمَجَّدٌ فِيهِمْ. وَلَسْتُ أَنَا بَعْدُ فِي الْعَالَمِ، وَأَمَّا هؤُلاَءِ فَهُمْ فِي الْعَالَمِ، وَأَنَا آتِي إِلَيْكَ. أَيُّهَا الآبُ الْقُدُّوسُ، احْفَظْهُمْ فِي اسْمِكَ الَّذِينَ أَعْطَيْتَنِي، لِيَكُونُوا وَاحِدًا كَمَا نَحْنُ. حِينَ كُنْتُ مَعَهُمْ فِي الْعَالَمِ كُنْتُ أَحْفَظُهُمْ فِي اسْمِكَ. الَّذِينَ أَعْطَيْتَنِي حَفِظْتُهُمْ، وَلَمْ يَهْلِكْ مِنْهُمْ أَحَدٌ إِلاَّ ابْنُ الْهَلاَكِ لِيَتِمَّ الْكِتَابُ. أَمَّا الآنَ فَإِنِّي آتِي إِلَيْكَ. وَأَتَكَلَّمُ بِهذَا فِي الْعَالَمِ لِيَكُونَ لَهُمْ فَرَحِي كَامِلاً فِيهِمْ. وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

The Pauline Epistle from 1 Corinthians

البولس من كورونثوس الأولى

13:1-14:4

١٣ : ١ − ١٤ : ٤

*If I speak with the tongues of men, and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And if I should have prophecy and should know all mysteries, and all knowledge, and if I should have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And if I should distribute all my goods to feed the poor, and if I should deliver my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity is patient, is kind: charity envieth not, dealeth not perversely; is not puffed up; Is not ambitious, seeketh not her own, is not provoked to anger, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth with the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never falleth away: whether prophecies shall be made void, or tongues shall cease, or knowledge shall be destroyed. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child. But, when I became a man, I put away the things of a child. We see now through a glass in a dark manner; but then face to face. Now I know in part; but then I shall know even as I am known. And now there remain faith, hope, and charity, these three: but the greatest of these is charity. The gift of prophesying is to be preferred before that of speaking strange tongues. Follow after charity, be zealous for spiritual gifts; but rather that you may prophesy. For he that speaketh in a tongue, speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man heareth. Yet by the Spirit he speaketh mysteries. But he that prophesieth, speaketh to men unto edification, and exhortation, and comfort. He that speaketh in a tongue, edifieth himself: but he that prophesieth, edifieth the church. The grace of God the Father be with you all. Amen.

*إِنْ كُنْتُ أَتَكَلَّمُ بِأَلْسِنَةِ النَّاسِ وَالْمَلاَئِكَةِ وَلكِنْ لَيْسَ لِي مَحَبَّةٌ، فَقَدْ صِرْتُ نُحَاسًا يَطِنُّ أَوْ صَنْجًا يَرِنُّ. وَإِنْ كَانَتْ لِي نُبُوَّةٌ، وَأَعْلَمُ جَمِيعَ الأَسْرَارِ وَكُلَّ عِلْمٍ، وَإِنْ كَانَ لِي كُلُّ الإِيمَانِ حَتَّى أَنْقُلَ الْجِبَالَ، وَلكِنْ لَيْسَ لِي مَحَبَّةٌ، فَلَسْتُ شَيْئًا. وَإِنْ أَطْعَمْتُ كُلَّ أَمْوَالِي، وَإِنْ سَلَّمْتُ جَسَدِي حَتَّى أَحْتَرِقَ، وَلكِنْ لَيْسَ لِي مَحَبَّةٌ، فَلاَ أَنْتَفِعُ شَيْئًا. الْمَحَبَّةُ تَتَأَنَّى وَتَرْفُقُ. الْمَحَبَّةُ لاَ تَحْسِدُ. الْمَحَبَّةُ لاَ تَتَفَاخَرُ، وَلاَ تَنْتَفِخُ، وَلاَ تُقَبِّحُ، وَلاَ تَطْلُبُ مَا لِنَفْسِهَا، وَلاَ تَحْتَدُّ، وَلاَ تَظُنُّ السُّؤَ، وَلاَ تَفْرَحُ بِالإِثْمِ بَلْ تَفْرَحُ بِالْحَقِّ، وَتَحْتَمِلُ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ، وَتُصَدِّقُ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ، وَتَرْجُو كُلَّ شَيْءٍ، وَتَصْبِرُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ. اَلْمَحَبَّةُ لاَ تَسْقُطُ أَبَدًا. وَأَمَّا النُّبُوَّاتُ فَسَتُبْطَلُ، وَالأَلْسِنَةُ فَسَتَنْتَهِي، وَالْعِلْمُ فَسَيُبْطَلُ. لأَنَّنَا نَعْلَمُ بَعْضَ الْعِلْمِ وَنَتَنَبَّأُ بَعْضَ التَّنَبُّؤِ. وَلكِنْ مَتَى جَاءَ الْكَامِلُ فَحِينَئِذٍ يُبْطَلُ مَا هُوَ بَعْضٌ. لَمَّا كُنْتُ طِفْلاً كَطِفْل كُنْتُ أَتَكَلَّمُ، وَكَطِفْل كُنْتُ أَفْطَنُ، وَكَطِفْل كُنْتُ أَفْتَكِرُ. وَلكِنْ لَمَّا صِرْتُ رَجُلاً أَبْطَلْتُ مَا لِلطِّفْلِ. فَإِنَّنَا نَنْظُرُ الآنَ فِي مِرْآةٍ، فِي لُغْزٍ، لكِنْ حِينَئِذٍ وَجْهًا لِوَجْهٍ. الآنَ أَعْرِفُ بَعْضَ الْمَعْرِفَةِ، لكِنْ حِينَئِذٍ سَأَعْرِفُ كَمَا عُرِفْتُ. أَمَّا الآنَ فَيَثْبُتُ: الإِيمَانُ وَالرَّجَاءُ وَالْمَحَبَّةُ، هذِهِ الثَّلاَثَةُ وَلكِنَّ أَعْظَمَهُنَّ الْمَحَبَّةُ. اِتْبَعُوا الْمَحَبَّةَ، وَلكِنْ جِدُّوا لِلْمَوَاهِبِ الرُّوحِيَّةِ، وَبِالأَوْلَى أَنْ تَتَنَبَّأُوا. لأَنَّ مَنْ يَتَكَلَّمُ بِلِسَانٍ لاَ يُكَلِّمُ النَّاسَ بَلِ اللهَ، لأَنْ لَيْسَ أَحَدٌ يَسْمَعُ، وَلكِنَّهُ بِالرُّوحِ يَتَكَلَّمُ بِأَسْرَارٍ. وَأَمَّا مَنْ يَتَنَبَّأُ، فَيُكَلِّمُ النَّاسَ بِبُنْيَانٍ وَوَعْظٍ وَتَسْلِيَةٍ. مَنْ يَتَكَلَّمُ بِلِسَانٍ يَبْنِي نَفْسَهُ، وَأَمَّا مَنْ يَتَنَبَّأُ فَيَبْنِي الْكَنِيسَةَ. نعمةُ اللَّهِ الآبِ فَلْتَحِلَّ عَلَى أرواحِنا يا آبائي وإخْوَتي. آمين.

The Catholic Epistle from 1 John

الكاثوليكون من يوحنا الأولى

2:12-17

٢ : ١٢ − ١٧

*I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake. I write unto you, fathers, because you have known him, who is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because you have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, babes, because you have known the Father. I write unto you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and you have overcome the wicked one. Love not the world, nor the things which are in the world. If any man love the world, the charity of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, is the concupiscence of the flesh, and the concupiscence of the eyes, and the pride of life, which is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the concupiscence thereof: but he that doth the will of God, abideth for ever. 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.

*أَكْتُبُ إِلَيْكُمْ أَيُّهَا الأَوْلاَدُ، لأَنَّهُ قَدْ غُفِرَتْ لَكُمُ الْخَطَايَا مِنْ أَجْلِ اسْمِهِ. أَكْتُبُ إِلَيْكُمْ أَيُّهَا الآبَاءُ، لأَنَّكُمْ قَدْ عَرَفْتُمُ الَّذِي مِنَ الْبَدْءِ. أَكْتُبُ إِلَيْكُمْ أَيُّهَا الأَحْدَاثُ، لأَنَّكُمْ قَدْ غَلَبْتُمُ الشِّرِّيرَ. أَكْتُبُ إِلَيْكُمْ أَيُّهَا الأَوْلاَدُ، لأَنَّكُمْ قَدْ عَرَفْتُمُ الآبَ. كَتَبْتُ إِلَيْكُمْ أَيُّهَا الآبَاءُ، لأَنَّكُمْ قَدْ عَرَفْتُمُ الَّذِي مِنَ الْبَدْءِ. كَتَبْتُ إِلَيْكُمْ أَيُّهَا الأَحْدَاثُ، لأَنَّكُمْ أَقْوِيَاءُ، وَكَلِمَةُ اللهِ ثَابِتَةٌ فِيكُمْ، وَقَدْ غَلَبْتُمُ الشِّرِّيرَ. لاَ تُحِبُّوا الْعَالَمَ وَلاَ الأَشْيَاءَ الَّتِي فِي الْعَالَمِ. إِنْ أَحَبَّ أَحَدٌ الْعَالَمَ فَلَيْسَتْ فِيهِ مَحَبَّةُ الآبِ. لأَنَّ كُلَّ مَا فِي الْعَالَمِ: شَهْوَةَ الْجَسَدِ، وَشَهْوَةَ الْعُيُونِ، وَتَعَظُّمَ الْمَعِيشَةِ، لَيْسَ مِنَ الآبِ بَلْ مِنَ الْعَالَمِ. وَالْعَالَمُ يَمْضِي وَشَهْوَتُهُ، وَأَمَّا الَّذِي يَصْنَعُ مَشِيئَةَ اللهِ فَيَثْبُتُ إِلَى الأَبَدِ. لا تُحِبُّوا العَالَمَ ولا الأشْيَاءَ التي في العَالَمِ، لأنَّ العَالَمَ يمْضِي وَشَهْوَتُهُ مَعَهُ، وأمَّا مَنْ يَعملُ مَشِيئَةَ اللهِ فإنه يَثْبُتُ إلى الأبدِ. آمين.

1:15-26

١ : ١٥ − ٢٦

*In those days Peter rising up in the midst of the brethren, said: (now the number of persons together was about an hundred and twenty:) Men, brethren, the scripture must needs be fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost spoke before by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who was the leader of them that apprehended Jesus: Who was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. And he indeed hath possessed a field of the reward of iniquity, and being hanged, burst asunder in the midst: and all his bowels gushed out. And it became known to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem: so that the same field was called in their tongue, Haceldama, that is to say, The field of blood. For it is written in the book of Psalms: Let their habitation become desolate, and let there be none to dwell therein. And his bishopric let another take. Wherefore of these men who have companied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus came in and went out among us, Beginning from the baptism of John, until the day wherein he was taken up from us, one of these must be made a witness with us of his resurrection. And they appointed two, Joseph, called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. And praying, they said: Thou, Lord, who knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen, To take the place of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas hath by transgression fallen, that he might go to his own place. And they gave them lots, and the lot fell upon Matthias, and he was numbered with the eleven apostles. The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed, in the holy Church of God. Amen.

*وَفِي تِلْكَ الأَيَّامِ قَامَ بُطْرُسُ فِي وَسْطِ التَّلاَمِيذِ، وَكَانَ عِدَّةُ أَسْمَاءٍ مَعًا نَحْوَ مِئَةٍ وَعِشْرِينَ. فَقَالَ: «أَيُّهَا الرِّجَالُ الإِخْوَةُ، كَانَ يَنْبَغِي أَنْ يَتِمَّ هذَا الْمَكْتُوبُ الَّذِي سَبَقَ الرُّوحُ الْقُدُسُ فَقَالَهُ بِفَمِ دَاوُدَ، عَنْ يَهُوذَا الَّذِي صَارَ دَلِيلاً لِلَّذِينَ قَبَضُوا عَلَى يَسُوعَ، إِذْ كَانَ مَعْدُودًا بَيْنَنَا وَصَارَ لَهُ نَصِيبٌ فِي هذِهِ الْخِدْمَةِ. فَإِنَّ هذَا اقْتَنَى حَقْلاً مِنْ أُجْرَةِ الظُّلْمِ، وَإِذْ سَقَطَ عَلَى وَجْهِهِ انْشَقَّ مِنَ الْوَسْطِ، فَانْسَكَبَتْ أَحْشَاؤُهُ كُلُّهَا. وَصَارَ ذلِكَ مَعْلُومًا عِنْدَ جَمِيعِ سُكَّانِ أُورُشَلِيمَ، حَتَّى دُعِيَ ذلِكَ الْحَقْلُ فِي لُغَتِهِمْ «حَقَلْ دَمَا» أَيْ: حَقْلَ دَمٍ. لأَنَّهُ مَكْتُوبٌ فِي سِفْرِ الْمَزَامِيرِ: لِتَصِرْ دَارُهُ خَرَابًا وَلاَ يَكُنْ فِيهَا سَاكِنٌ. وَلْيَأْخُذْ وَظِيفَتَهُ آخَرُ. فَيَنْبَغِي أَنَّ الرِّجَالَ الَّذِينَ اجْتَمَعُوا مَعَنَا كُلَّ الزَّمَانِ الَّذِي فِيهِ دَخَلَ إِلَيْنَا الرَّبُّ يَسُوعُ وَخَرَجَ، مُنْذُ مَعْمُودِيَّةِ يُوحَنَّا إِلَى الْيَوْمِ الَّذِي ارْتَفَعَ فِيهِ عَنَّا، يَصِيرُ وَاحِدٌ مِنْهُمْ شَاهِدًا مَعَنَا بِقِيَامَتِهِ». فَأَقَامُوا اثْنَيْنِ: يُوسُفَ الَّذِي يُدْعَى بَارْسَابَا الْمُلَقَّبَ يُوسْتُسَ، وَمَتِّيَاسَ. وَصَلَّوْا قَائِلِينَ:«أَيُّهَا الرَّبُّ الْعَارِفُ قُلُوبَ الْجَمِيعِ، عَيِّنْ أَنْتَ مِنْ هذَيْنِ الاثْنَيْنِ أَيًّا اخْتَرْتَهُ، لِيَأْخُذَ قُرْعَةَ هذِهِ الْخِدْمَةِ وَالرِّسَالَةِ الَّتِي تَعَدَّاهَا يَهُوذَا لِيَذْهَبَ إِلَى مَكَانِهِ». ثُمَّ أَلْقَوْا قُرْعَتَهُمْ، فَوَقَعَتِ الْقُرْعَةُ عَلَى مَتِّيَاسَ، فَحُسِبَ مَعَ الأَحَدَ عَشَرَ رَسُولاً. لَمْ تَزَلْ كَلِمَةُ الرَّبِّ تَنْمُو وتَكْثُرُ وتَعْتَزُّ وتَثْبُتُ، في بِيعَةِ اللَّهِ الْمُقَدَّسَةِ. آمين.

A psalm of David

*Awake, psaltery and harp; I will awake early. I will give thanks to thee, O Lord, among the people; I will sing praise to thee among the Gentiles. Alleluia.

*فأعترف لك فى الشعوب يارب. وأرتل لك فى الأمم. لأن رحمتك قد عظمت فوق السموات. وإلى السحاب حقك. هلليلويا هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint John

الإنجيل من يوحنا

17:14-26

١٧ : ١٤ − ٢٦

*I have given them thy word, and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world; as I also am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep them from evil. They are not of the world, as I also am not of the world. Sanctify them in truth. Thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. And for them do I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth. And not for them only do I pray, but for them also who through their word shall believe in me; That they all may be one, as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee; that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou hast given me, I have given to them; that they may be one, as we also are one: I in them, and thou in me; that they may be made perfect in one: and the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast also loved me. Father, I will that where I am, they also whom thou hast given me may be with me; that they may see my glory which thou hast given me, because thou hast loved me before the creation of the world. Just Father, the world hath not known thee; but I have known thee: and these have known that thou hast sent me. And I have made known thy name to them, and will make it known; that the love wherewith thou hast loved me, may be in them, and I in them. Glory be to God forever.

*أَنَا قَدْ أَعْطَيْتُهُمْ كَلاَمَكَ، وَالْعَالَمُ أَبْغَضَهُمْ لأَنَّهُمْ لَيْسُوا مِنَ الْعَالَمِ، كَمَا أَنِّي أَنَا لَسْتُ مِنَ الْعَالَمِ، لَسْتُ أَسْأَلُ أَنْ تَأْخُذَهُمْ مِنَ الْعَالَمِ بَلْ أَنْ تَحْفَظَهُمْ مِنَ الشِّرِّيرِ. لَيْسُوا مِنَ الْعَالَمِ كَمَا أَنِّي أَنَا لَسْتُ مِنَ الْعَالَمِ. قَدِّسْهُمْ فِي حَقِّكَ. كَلاَمُكَ هُوَ حَق÷. كَمَا أَرْسَلْتَنِي إِلَى الْعَالَمِ أَرْسَلْتُهُمْ أَنَا إِلَى الْعَالَمِ، وَلأَجْلِهِمْ أُقَدِّسُ أَنَا ذَاتِي، لِيَكُونُوا هُمْ أَيْضًا مُقَدَّسِينَ فِي الْحَقِّ. «وَلَسْتُ أَسْأَلُ مِنْ أَجْلِ هؤُلاَءِ فَقَطْ، بَلْ أَيْضًا مِنْ أَجْلِ الَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِي بِكَلاَمِهِمْ، لِيَكُونَ الْجَمِيعُ وَاحِدًا، كَمَا أَنَّكَ أَنْتَ أَيُّهَا الآبُ فِيَّ وَأَنَا فِيكَ، لِيَكُونُوا هُمْ أَيْضًا وَاحِدًا فِينَا، لِيُؤْمِنَ الْعَالَمُ أَنَّكَ أَرْسَلْتَنِي. وَأَنَا قَدْ أَعْطَيْتُهُمُ الْمَجْدَ الَّذِي أَعْطَيْتَنِي، لِيَكُونُوا وَاحِدًا كَمَا أَنَّنَا نَحْنُ وَاحِدٌ. أَنَا فِيهِمْ وَأَنْتَ فِيَّ لِيَكُونُوا مُكَمَّلِينَ إِلَى وَاحِدٍ، وَلِيَعْلَمَ الْعَالَمُ أَنَّكَ أَرْسَلْتَنِي، وَأَحْبَبْتَهُمْ كَمَا أَحْبَبْتَنِي. أَيُّهَا الآبُ أُرِيدُ أَنَّ هؤُلاَءِ الَّذِينَ أَعْطَيْتَنِي يَكُونُونَ مَعِي حَيْثُ أَكُونُ أَنَا، لِيَنْظُرُوا مَجْدِي الَّذِي أَعْطَيْتَنِي، لأَنَّكَ أَحْبَبْتَنِي قَبْلَ إِنْشَاءِ الْعَالَمِ. أَيُّهَا الآبُ الْبَارُّ، إِنَّ الْعَالَمَ لَمْ يَعْرِفْكَ، أَمَّا أَنَا فَعَرَفْتُكَ، وَهؤُلاَءِ عَرَفُوا أَنَّكَ أَنْتَ أَرْسَلْتَنِي. وَعَرَّفْتُهُمُ اسْمَكَ وَسَأُعَرِّفُهُمْ، لِيَكُونَ فِيهِمُ الْحُبُّ الَّذِي أَحْبَبْتَنِي بِهِ، وَأَكُونَ أَنَا فِيهِمْ». وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.
