68:11,35

٦٨ : ١١، ٣٥

*The Lord God will give a word to them that preach it in a great company. God is wonderful in his holy places, the God of Israel: he will give power and strength to his people: blessed be God. Alleluia.

الرَّبُّ يُعْطِي كَلِمَةً للمُبشِّرِينَ، بِقُوَّةٍ عَظِيمَةٍ. عَجِيبٌ هُوَ اللَّهُ في قِدِّيسِيهِ. إلَهُ إسْرَائِيلَ هُوَ يُعْطِي قُوَّةً وَعِزَّاً لِشَعْبِهِ. هَلِّلُويَا.

3:7-21

٣ : ٧ − ٢١

*But Jesus retired with his disciples to the sea; and a great multitude followed him from Galilee and Judea, And from Jerusalem, and from Idumea, and from beyond the Jordan. And they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, hearing the things which he did, came to him. And he spoke to his disciples that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him. For he healed many, so that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had evils. And the unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him: and they cried, saying: Thou art the Son of God. And he strictly charged them that they should not make him known. And going up into a mountain, he called unto him whom he would himself: and they came to him. And he made that twelve should be with him, and that he might send them to preach. And he gave them power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils. And to Simon he gave the name Peter: And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he named them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder: And Andrew and Philip, and Bartholomew and Matthew, and Thomas and James of Alpheus, and Thaddeus, and Simon the Cananean: And Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him. And they come to a house, and the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread. And when his friends had heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him. For they said: He is become mad. Glory be to God forever.

فَانْطَلَقَ يَسُوعُ مَعَ تَلامِيذِهِ إلى عَبْرِ الْبَحْرِ، وَتَبِعَهُ جَمْعٌ كَثِيرٌ مِنَ الْجَلِيلِ وَمِنَ الْيَهُودِيَّةِ وَمِنْ أُورُشَلِيمَ وَمِنْ أَدُومِيَّةَ وَمِنْ عَبْرِ الأُرْدُنِّ. وَجَمْعٌ كَثِيرٌ مِنْ صُور وَصَيْدَا، وَسَمِعُوا بِمَا صَنَعَ فَأَتَوْا إلَيْهِ. فَقَالَ لِتَلاَمِيذِهِ أنْ تُلاَزِمَهُ سَفِينَةٌ لِسَبَبِ الْجَمْعِ، كَيْ لا يَزْحَمُوهُ، لأنهُ كَانَ قد أَبْرَأَ كَثِيرِينَ، حَتَّى وَقَعَ عَلَيْهِ لِيَلْمِسَهُ كُلُّ مَنْ فِيهِ دَاءٌ. وَالأَرْوَاحُ النَّجِسَةُ حِينَمَا نَظَرَتْهُ خَرَّتْ قُدَّامَهُ وَصَرَخَتْ قَائِلَةً: "إنَّكَ أَنْتَ هُوَ ابْنُ اللَّهِ!". وانْتَهَرَهُمْ كَثِيراً كَيْ لا يُظْهِرُوهُ. ثُمَّ صَعِدَ إلى الْجَبَلِ وَدَعَا الَّذِينَ أَرَادَهُمْ فَذَهَبُوا إلَيْهِ. فَانْتَخَبَ اثْنَيْ عَشَرَ وَسَمَّاهُمْ رُسُلاً لِيمكُثُوا مَعَهُ، وَلِيُرْسِلَهُمْ لِيَكْرِزُوا، وَلِكَيْ يَكُونَ لَهُمْ سُلْطَانٌ عَلَى شِفَاءِ الأَمْرَاضِ وَإخْرَاجِ الشَّيَاطِينِ. وَجَعَلَ لِسِمْعَانَ اسْمَ بُطْرُسَ. وَيَعْقُوبَ بْنَ زَبْدِي وَيُوحَنَّا أَخَا يَعْقُوبَ، وَسَمَّاهُمَا بُوَانَرْجِسَ الَّذِي تَفْسِيرُهُ ابْنَا الرَّعْدِ. وَأَنْدَرَاوُسَ، وَفِيلُبُّسَ، وَبَرْثُولُمَاوُسَ، وَمَتَّى، وَتُومَا، وَيَعْقُوبَ بْنَ حَلْفَى، وَتَدَّاوُسَ، وَسِمْعَانَ الْقَانَوِيَّ، وَيَهُوذَا الإسْخَرْيُوطِيَّ الَّذِي أَسْلَمَهُ. ثُمَّ دَخَلُوا في بَيْتٍ. فَاجْتَمَعَ أيْضاً جَمْعٌ كَثِيرٌ حَتَّى لَمْ يَقْدِرُوا وَلا عَلَى أَكْلِ خُبْزٍ. وَلَمَّا سَمِعَ أَقْرِبَاؤُهُ خَرَجُوا لِيُمْسِكُوهُ؛ لأنهُمْ كَانُوا يَقُولُونَ: "إنَّهُ مُخْتَلٌّ". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

6:12-23

٦ : ١٢ − ٢٣

*And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and he passed the whole night in the prayer of God. And when day was come, he called unto him his disciples; and he chose twelve of them (whom also he named apostles). Simon, whom he surnamed Peter, and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew, Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alpheus, and Simon who is called Zelotes, And Jude, the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, who was the traitor. And coming down with them, he stood in a plain place, and the company of his disciples, and a very great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem, and the sea coast both of Tyre and Sidon, Who were come to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases. And they that were troubled with unclean spirits, were cured. And all the multitude sought to touch him, for virtue went out from him, and healed all. And he, lifting up his eyes on his disciples, said: Blessed are ye poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are ye that hunger now: for you shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for you shall laugh. Blessed shall you be when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake. Be glad in that day and rejoice; for behold, your reward is great in heaven. For according to these things did their fathers to the prophets. Glory be to God forever.

وَفي تِلْكَ الأيامِ خَرَجَ إلى الْجَبَلِ لِيُصَلِّيَ. وَكَانَ سَاهِراً في الصَّلاَةِ لِلَّهِ. وَلَمَّا كَانَ النَّهَارُ دَعَا تَلاَمِيذَهُ، وَاخْتَارَ مِنْهُمُ اثْنَيْ عَشَرَ، الَّذِينَ سَمَّاهُمْ " رُسُلاً ": سِمْعَانَ الَّذِي يُدْعَى بُطْرُسَ وَأَنْدَرَاوُسَ أَخَاهُ. يَعْقُوبَ وَيُوحَنَّا أَخَاهُ. فِيلُبُّسَ وَبَرْثُولُمَاوُسَ. ومَتَّى وَتُومَا. وَيَعْقُوبَ بْنَ حَلْفَى وَسِمْعَانَ الَّذِي يُدْعَى الْغَيُورَ. وَيَهُوذَا الَّذِي لِيَعْقُوبَ، وَيَهُوذَا الإسْخَرْيوطِيَّ الَّذِي صَارَ مُسَلِّمَاً. وَنَزَلَ مَعَهُمْ وَوَقَفَ في مَوْضِعٍ خَلاءٍ، مَعَ جَمْعٍ مِنْ تَلامِيذِهِ، وَجُمْهورٍ كَثِيرٍ مِنَ الشَّعْبِ، مِنْ جَمِيعِ الْيَهُودِيَّةِ وَأُورُشَلِيمَ وَمِنْ سَاحِلِ صُورَ وَصَيْدَا، الَّذِينَ جَاءُوا لِيَسْمَعُوا مِنهُ وَيَشفِيَهِمْ مِنْ أَمْرَاضِهِمْ، وَالْمُعَذَّبُونَ مِنَ الأَرْوَاحِ النَّجِسَةِ كَانَ يَشْفِيهِمْ. وَكَانَ كُلُّ الْجَمْعِ يَطْلُبُ أنْ يَلْمِسَهُ؛ لأنَّ قُوَّةً كَانَتْ تَخْرُجُ مِنْهُ وَتَشْفِي الْجَمِيعَ. وَرَفَعَ عَيْنَيْهِ إلى تَلامِيذِهِ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: "طُوبَاكُمْ أيهَا الْمَسَاكِينُ بِالرُّوحِ؛ لأنَّ لَكُمْ مَلَكُوتَ اللَّهِ. طُوبَاكُمْ أيهَا الْجِيَاعُ الآنَ؛ لأنكُمْ تُشْبَعُونَ. طُوبَاكُمْ أيهَا الْبَاكُونَ الآنَ؛ لأنكُمْ سَتَضْحَكُونَ. طُوبَاكُمْ إذا أبْغَضَكُمْ النَّاسُ، وَأَفْرَزُوكُمْ وَعَيَّرُوكُمْ، وَأَخْرَجُوا اسْمَكُمْ كَشِرِّيرٍ مِنْ أَجْلِ ابْنِ الإنْسَانِ. افْرَحُوا في ذلِكَ الْيَوْمِ وَتَهَلَّلُوا، فَهُوَذَا أَجْرُكُمْ عَظِيمٌ في السَّمَاءِ؛ لأنَّ آباءَهُمْ هكَذَا كَانُوا يَفْعَلُونَ بِالأنبِيَاءِ". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

The Pauline Epistle from Romans

البولس من رومية

10:4-18

١٠ : ٤ − ١٨

*For the end of the law is Christ, unto justice to every one that believeth. For Moses wrote, that the justice which is of the law, the man that shall do it, shall live by it. But the justice which is of faith, speaketh thus: Say not in thy heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? that is, to bring Christ down; Or who shall descend into the deep? that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead. But what saith the scripture? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart. This is the word of faith, which we preach. For if thou confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in thy heart that God hath raised him up from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For, with the heart, we believe unto justice; but, with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith: Whosoever believeth in him, shall not be confounded. For there is no distinction of the Jew and the Greek: for the same is Lord over all, rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved. How then shall they call on him, in whom they have not believed? Or how shall they believe him, of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear, without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they be sent, as it is written: How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, of them that bring glad tidings of good things! But all do not obey the gospel. For Isaias saith: Lord, who hath believed our report? Faith then cometh by hearing; and hearing by the word of Christ. But I say: Have they not heard? Yes, verily, their sound hath gone forth into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the whole world. The grace of God the Father be with you all. Amen.

لأنَّ غَايَةَ النَّامُوسِ هيَ: الْمَسِيحُ لِلْبِرِّ لِكُلِّ مَنْ يُؤْمِنُ؛ لأنَّ مُوسَى كَتَبَ في الْبِرِّ الَّذِي مِنَ النَّامُوسِ: "إنَّ الإنْسَانَ الَّذِي يَفْعَلُهُ يَحْيَا بِهِ". وَأمَّا الْبِرُّ الَّذِي مِنَ الإيمَانِ فَيَقُولُ هكَذَا: "لا تَقُلْ في قَلْبِكَ مَنْ يَصْعَدُ إلى السَّمَاءِ؟ "، أيْ لِيُنْزِلَ الْمَسِيحَ. أوْ: "مَنْ يَهْبِطُ إلى الْهَاوِيَةِ؟ "، أيْ لِيُصْعِدَ الْمَسِيحَ مِنْ بَيْنِ الأَمْوَاتِ. لكِنْ مَاذا يَقُولُ الكِتَابُ: "إنَّ الكَلِمَةَ قَرِيبَةٌ مِنْكَ، وَهيَ في فَمِكَ وَفي قَلْبِكَ "، أيْ كَلِمَةُ الإيمَانِ التي نُنَادِي بِهَا:‎ لأنكَ إنْ اعْتَرَفْتَ بِفَمِكَ أنَّ الرَّبَّ هُوَ يَسُوعُ، وَآمَنْتَ بِقَلْبِكَ أنَّ اللَّهَ قَدْ أَقَامَهُ مِنْ بَيْنِ الأَمْوَاتِ، فَإنَّكَ تَخْلُصُ؛ لأنَّ بِالْقَلْبِ يُؤْمَنُ بِهِ لِلْبِرِّ، وَبِالْفَمِ يُعْتَرَفُ بِهِ لِلْخَلاَصِ. لأنَّ الْكِتَابَ يَقُولُ: "كُلُّ مَنْ يُؤْمِنُ بِهِ لا يُخْزَى "؛ لأنهُ لا فَرْقَ بَيْنَ الْيَهُودِيِّ وَالْيُونَانِيِّ، إذْ لِلجَمِيعِ رَبٌّ وَاحِدٌ، غَنِيٌّ لِكُلِّ مَنْ يَدْعُوهُ؛ لأنَّ " كُلَّ مَنْ يَدْعُو بِاسْمِ الرَّبِّ يَخْلُصُ". وَلكِنْ كَيْفَ يَدْعُونَ بِمَنْ لَمْ يُؤْمِنُوا بِهِ؟ وَكَيْفَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِمَنْ لَمْ يَسْمَعُوا بِهِ؟ وَكَيْفَ يَسْمَعُونَ بِلا كَارِزٍ؟ وَكَيْفَ يَكْرِزُونَ إنْ لَمْ يُرْسَلُوا؟ كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ: "مَا أَجْمَلَ أَقْدَامَ الْمُبَشِّرِينَ بِالْخَيْرَاتِ!". لكِنْ لَيْسَ الْجَمِيعُ قَدْ أَطَاعُوا الإنْجِيلَ، لأنَّ إشَعْيَاءَ يَقُولُ: "يَارَبُّ مَنْ آمَنَ بِخَبَرِنَا. وَلِمَنْ اسْتُعْلِنَتْ ذِرَاعُ الرَّبِّ؟". إذاً الإيمَانُ بِالسَّمْعِ، وَالسَّمْعُ بِكَلِمَةِ الْمَسِيحِ. لكِنَّنِي أَقُولُ: ألَعَلَّهُمْ لَمْ يَسْمَعُوا؟ وَكَيْفَ ذلِكَ؟ وَقَد خَرَجَ صَوْتُهُمْ إلى الأَرْضِ كُلِّهَا، وَإلَى أَقَاصِي الْمَسْكُونَةِ بَلَغَتْ أَقْوَالُهُمْ. نعمةُ اللَّهِ الآبِ فَلْتَحِلَّ عَلَى أرواحِنا يا آبائي وإخْوَتي. آمين.

The Catholic Epistle from 2 Peter

الكاثوليكون من بطرس الثانية

1:12-21

١ : ١٢ − ٢١

*For which cause I will begin to put you always in remembrance of these things: though indeed you know them, and are confirmed in the present truth. But I think it meet as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance. Being assured that the laying away of this my tabernacle is at hand, according as our Lord Jesus Christ also hath signified to me. And I will endeavour, that you frequently have after my decease, whereby you may keep a memory of these things. For we have not by following artificial fables, made known to you the power, and presence of our Lord Jesus Christ; but we were eyewitnesses of his greatness. For he received from God the Father, honour and glory: this voice coming down to him from the excellent glory: This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. And this voice we heard brought from heaven, when we were with him in the holy mount. And we have the more firm prophetical word: whereunto you do well to attend, as to a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Understanding this first, that no prophecy of scripture is made by private interpretation. For prophecy came not by the will of man at any time: but the holy men of God spoke, inspired by the Holy Ghost. 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.

لِذلِكَ سَوْفَ أُذَكِّرُكُمْ في كُلِّ حِينٍ بِهذِهِ الأُمُورِ، وَلَوْ إنَّكُمْ عَالِمُونَ وَثَابِتُونَ في الْحَقِّ الْحَاضِرِ. وَلكِنَّنِي أَظُنُّ أنهُ وَاجِبُ حَقٍّ عَلَيَّ أنْ أُذَكِّرَكُمْ مَا دُمْتُ مُقِيمَاً في هذَا الْمَسْكَنِ وأنْ أُنْهِضَكُمْ بِالتَّذْكِرَةِ، عَالِماً أنَّ مَسْكَنِي سَيَنْحَلُّ سَرِيعَاً، كَمَا أَعْلَمَنِي رَبُّنا يَسُوعُ الْمَسِيحُ. وَأنَا أُسْرِعُ في كُلِّ حِينٍ لِتَتَذَكَّرُوا هذِهِ الأُمُورَ مِنْ بَعْدِ خُرُوجِي. لأننَا لَمْ نَتْبَعْ خُرَافَاتٍ فَلْسَفِيَّةً، إذْ عَرَّفْنَاكُمْ بِقُوَّةِ رَبِّنَا يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ وَظُهُورِهِ، بَلْ قَدْ كُنَّا مُعَايِنِينَ عَظَمَتَهُ. لأنهُ أَخَذَ كَرَامَةً وَمَجْداً مِنَ اللَّهِ الآبِ، وَإذْ أَقْبَلَ عَلَيْهِ صَوْتٌ كَهذَا مِنَ الْمَجْدِ الأَسْنَى الْعَظِيمِ قَائِلاً: "هذَا هُوَ ابْنِي حَبِيبِي، الَّذِي أَنا بِهِ سُرِرْتُ". وَقَد سَمِعْنَا نَحْنُ هذَا الصَّوْتَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ، حِينَ كُنَّا مَعَهُ عَلَى الْجَبَلِ الْمُقَدَّسِ. وَثَابِتٌ عِنْدَنَا كَلامُ الأنْبِيَاءِ، هذَا الَّذِي هُوَ نِعْمَ مَا تَصْنَعُونَهُ إذَا تَأمَّلْتُمْ إلَيْهِ، كَمِثْلِ سِرَاجٍ مُضِيءٍ في مَوْضِعٍ مُظْلِمٍ، حتَّى يَظْهَرَ النَّهَارُ، وَالنُّورُ يُشْرِقَ وَيَظْهَرَ في قُلُوبِكُمْ، وَهذَا أَوَّلاً فَاعْلَمُوهُ: أنَّ كُلَّ نُبُوَّاتِ الْكُتُبِ لَيْسَ تَأْوِيلُهَا مِنْ ذَاتِهَا خَاصَةً. وَلَيْسَتْ بِمَشِيئَةِ إنْسَانٍ جَاءَتْ نُبوَّةٌ في زَمَانٍ، بَلْ تَكَلَّمَ أُناسٌ بِإرَادَةِ اللَّهِ بِالرُّوحِ الْقُدُسِ. لا تُحِبُّوا العَالَمَ ولا الأشْيَاءَ التي في العَالَمِ، لأنَّ العَالَمَ يمْضِي وَشَهْوَتُهُ مَعَهُ، وأمَّا مَنْ يَعملُ مَشِيئَةَ اللهِ فإنه يَثْبُتُ إلى الأبدِ. آمين.

3:1-16

٣ : ١ − ١٦

*Now Peter and John went up into the temple at the ninth hour of prayer. And a certain man who was lame from his mother's womb, was carried: whom they laid every day at the gate of the temple, which is called Beautiful, that he might ask alms of them that went into the temple. He, when he had seen Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked to receive an alms. But Peter with John fastening his eyes upon him, said: Look upon us. But he looked earnestly upon them, hoping that he should receive something of them. But Peter said: Silver and gold I have none; but what I have, I give thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, arise, and walk. And taking him by the right hand, he lifted him up, and forthwith his feet and soles received strength. And he leaping up, stood, and walked, and went in with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God. And they knew him, that it was he who sat begging alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened to him. And as he held Peter and John, all the people ran to them to the porch which is called Solomon's, greatly wondering. But Peter seeing, made answer to the people: Ye men of Israel, why wonder you at this? or why look you upon us, as if by our strength or power we had made this man to walk? The God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus, whom you indeed delivered up and denied before the face of Pilate, when he judged he should be released. But you denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you. But the author of life you killed, whom God hath raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses. And in the faith of his name, this man, whom you have seen and known, hath his name strengthened; and the faith which is by him, hath given this perfect soundness in the sight of you all. The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed, in the holy Church of God. Amen.

وَصَعِدَ بُطْرُسُ وَيُوحَنَّا إلى الْهَيْكَلِ في وَقْتِ صَلاةِ السَّاعَةِ التَّاسِعَةِ. وَكَانَ رَجُلٌ أَعْرَجُ مِنْ بَطْنِ أُمِّهِ، هذَا كَانَ يُحْمَلُ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ وَيَضَعُونَهُ عِنْدَ بَابِ الْهَيْكَلِ الَّذِي يُقَالُ لَهُ " الْجَمِيلُ "، لِيَسْأَلَ صَدَقَةً مِنَ الَّذِينَ يَدْخُلُونَ الْهَيْكَلَ. فَهذَا لَمَّا رَأى بُطْرُسَ وَيُوحَنَّا مُزْمِعَيْنِ أنْ يَدْخُلا الْهَيْكَلَ، سَأَلَهُمَا يُرِيدُ أنْ يَأْخُذَ مِنْهُمَا صَدَقَةً. فَتَفَرَّسَ فِيهِ بُطْرُسُ مَعَ يُوحَنَّا، وَقَالَ: "انْظُرْ إلَيْنَا!" فَتَفَرَّسَ فِيهُمَا مُؤَمِّلاً أنْ يَأْخُذَ مِنْهُمَا شَيْئاً. فَقاَلَ لَهُ بُطْرُسُ: "لَيْسَ لِي فِضَّةٌ وَلا ذَهَبٌ، وَلكِنِ الَّذِي لِي فَإيَّاهُ أُعْطِيكَ: بِاسْمِ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ النَّاصِرِيِّ قُمْ وَامْشِ". وَأَمْسَكَهُ بِيَدِهِ الْيُمْنَى وَأَقَامَهُ، فَفِي الْحَالِ تَشَدَّدَتْ سَاقَاهُ وَكَعْبَاهُ، فَوَثَبَ وَوَقَفَ وَصَارَ يَمْشِي، وَدَخَلَ مَعَهُمَا إلى الْهَيْكَلِ وَهُوَ يَمْشِي وَيَثِبُ وَيُسَبِّحُ اللَّهَ. وَأَبْصَرَهُ جَمِيعُ الشَّعْبِ وَهُوَ يَمْشِي وَيُسَبِّحُ اللَّهَ. وَكَانُوا يَعْرِفُونَهُ أنهُ هُوَ الَّذِي كَانَ يَجْلِسُ يَسْأَلُ صَدَقَةً عَلَى بَابِ الْهَيْكَلِ الْجَمِيلِ، فَامْتَلأُوا خَوْفَاً وَدَهْشَةً مِمَّا حَدَثَ لَهُ. وَبَيْنَمَا كَانَ (الرَّجُلُ الأَعْرَجُ) مُتَمَسِّكَاً بِبُطْرُسَ وَيُوحَنَّا، تَبَادَرَ إلَيْهِمْ جَمِيعُ الشَّعْبِ إلى الرِّواقِ الَّذِي يُقَالُ لَهُ " رِوَاقُ سُلَيْمَانَ " وَهُمْ مُنْدَهِشُونَ. فَلَمَّا رأى بُطْرُسُ أجَابَ الشَّعْبَ: أيهَا الرِّجَالُ الإسْرَائِيلِيُّونَ، لِمَاذا تَتَعَجَّبُونَ مِنْ هذَا؟ وَلِمَا تَشْخَصُونَ إلَيْنَا، كَأننَا بِقُوَّتِنَا أوْ تَقْوَانَا صَنَعْنَا هذَا، أنْ جَعَلْنَا هذا يَمْشِي؟ إنَّ إِلَهَ إبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِلَهَ إسْحَقَ وَإِلَهَ يَعْقُوبَ، إِلَهَ آبائِنَا، مَجَّدَ فَتَاهُ يَسُوعَ، هذا الَّذِي أسْلَمْتُمُوهُ أنْتُمْ وَأنْكَرْتُمُوهُ أمَامَ بِيلاطُسَ، وَهُوَ حَاكِمٌ بِإطْلاَقِهِ. وَأمَّا أنْتُمْ فَأنْكَرْتُمُ القُدُّوسَ وَالبَارَّ، وَطَلَبْتُمْ أنْ يُطْلَقَ لَكُمْ رَجُلٌ قَاتِلٌ. وَرَئِيسُ الْحَيَاةِ قَتَلْتُمُوهُ، هذَا الَّذِي أقَامَهُ اللَّهُ مِنْ بَيْنِ الأمْوَاتِ، وَنَحْنُ شُهُودٌ لِذلِكَ. وَبِالإيمَانِ بِاسْمِهِ، هذَا الَّذِي تَرَوْنَهُ وَتَعْرِفُونَهُ، اسْمُهُ هُوَ الَّذِي ثَبَّتَهُ، وَالإيمَانُ الَّذِي بِوَاسِطَتِهِ أَعْطَاهُ هذِهِ الصِّحَّةَ أمَامَكُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ. لَمْ تَزَلْ كَلِمَةُ الرَّبِّ تَنْمُو وتَكْثُرُ وتَعْتَزُّ وتَثْبُتُ، في بِيعَةِ اللَّهِ الْمُقَدَّسَةِ. آمين.

A psalm of David

مزمور لداود

19:1,4

١٩ : ١، ٤

*The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims the work of his hands. Their voice is gone out into all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world. Alleluia.

السَّمَوَاتُ تُذِيعُ مَجْدَ اللَّهِ، الْفَلَكُ يُخْبِرُ بِعَمَلِ يَدَيْهِ. في كُلِّ الأَرْضِ خَرَجَ مَنْطِقُهُمْ. وَإلى أَقْطَارِ الْمَسْكُونَةِ بَلَغَتْ أَقَوَالُهُمْ. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint Mathew

الإنجيل من متى

10:1-15

١٠ : ١ − ١٥

*And having called his twelve disciples together, he gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of diseases, and all manner of infirmities. And the names of the twelve apostles are these: The first, Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, Philip and Bartholomew, Thomas and Matthew the publican, and James the son of Alpheus, and Thaddeus, Simon the Cananean, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him. These twelve Jesus sent: commanding them, saying: Go ye not into the way of the Gentiles, and into the city of the Samaritans enter ye not. But go ye rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And going, preach, saying: The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out devils: freely have you received, freely give. Do not possess gold, nor silver, nor money in your purses: Nor scrip for your journey, nor two coats, nor shoes, nor a staff; for the workman is worthy of his meat. And into whatsoever city or town you shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and there abide till you go thence. And when you come into the house, salute it, saying: Peace be to this house. And if that house be worthy, your peace shall come upon it; but if it be not worthy, your peace shall return to you. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words: going forth out of that house or city shake off the dust from your feet. Amen I say to you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. Glory be to God forever.

ثُمَّ دَعَا تَلاَمِيذَهُ الاثْنَيْ عَشَرَ وَأَعْطَاهُمْ سُلْطَاناً عَلَى أَرْوَاحٍ نَجِسَةٍ حَتَّى يُخْرِجُوهَا وَيَشْفُوا كُلَّ مَرَضٍ وَكُلَّ سُقْمٍ. وَأَمَّا أَسْمَاءُ الاثْنَيْ عَشَرَ رَسُولاً فَهِيَ هذِهِ: الأوَّلُ سِمْعَانُ الذِي يُقَالُ لَهُ بُطْرُسُ، وَأَنْدَرَاوُسُ أَخُوهُ. يَعْقُوبُ بْنُ زَبْدِي، وَيُوحَنَّا أَخُوهُ. فِيلُبُّسُ، وَبَرْثُولُمَاوُسُ. تُومَا، وَمَتَّى الْعَشَّارُ. يَعْقُوبُ بْنُ حَلْفَى، وَتَدَّاوُسُ. سِمْعَانُ الْقَانَوِيُّ وَيَهُوذَا الإسْخَرْيُوطِيُّ الَّذِي أَسْلَمَهُ. هَؤُلاَءِ الاثْنَا عَشَرَ أَرْسَلَهُمْ يَسُوعُ وَأَوْصَاهُمْ قَائِلاً: "إلى طَرِيقِ أُمَمٍ لا تَذْهَبُوا وَإلى مَدِينَةٍ لِلسَّامِرِيِّينَ لا تَدْخُلُوا. بَل اذْهَبُوا بِالْحَرِيِّ إلى خِرَافِ بَيْتِ إسْرَائِيلَ الضَّالَّةِ. وَفِيمَا أَنْتُمْ ذَاهِبُونَ اكْرِزُوا قَائِلِينَ: إنَّهَ قَدْ اقْتَرَبَ مَلَكُوتُ السَّمَوَاتِ. اِشْفُوا الْمَرْضَى. أَقِيمُوا الْمَوْتَى. طَهِّرُوا الْبُرْصَ. أَخْرِجُوا الشياطِينَ. مَجَّانَاً أَخَذْتمْ، مَجَّانَاً أَعْطُوا. لا تَقْتَنُوا لَكُمْ ذَهَبَاً وَلا فِضَّةً وَلا نُحَاسَاً في مَنَاطِقِكُمْ، وَلا مِزْوَداً لَكُمْ في الطَّرِيقِ وَلا ثَوْبَيْنِ وَلا أَحْذِيَةً وَلا عَصاً؛ لأنَّ الْفَاعِلَ مُسْتَحِقٌّ طَعَامَهُ. وَأَيةُ مَدِينَةٍ أَوْ قَرْيَةٍ تَدْخُلُونَهَا فَافْحَصُوا مَنْ فِيهَا مُسْتَحِقٌّ، وَأَقِيمُوا هُنَاكَ حَتَّى تَخْرُجُوا. وَحِينَ تَدْخُلُونَ الْبَيْتَ سَلِّمُوا عَلَيْهِ، فَإنْ كَانَ الْبَيْتُ مُسْتَحِقّاً فَلْيَأْتِ سَلاَمُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ. وَلكِنْ إنْ لَمْ يَكُنْ مُسْتَحِقّاً فَلْيَرْجِعْ سَلاَمُكُمْ إلَيْكُمْ. وَمَنْ لا يَقْبَلُكُمْ وَلا يَسْمَعُ كَلاَمَكُمْ فَاخْرُجُوا خَارِجَاً مِنْ ذلِكَ الْبَيْتِ أَوْ مِنْ تِلْكَ الْمَدِينَةِ أَوْ الْقَرِيَةِ وَانْفُضُوا غُبَارَ أَرْجُلِكُمْ. الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: سَتَكُونُ لأَرْضِ سَدُومَ وَعَمُورَةَ يَوْمَ الدِّينِ رَاحَةٌ أَكْثَرُ مِمَّا لِتِلْكَ الْمَدِينَةِ. وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.
