34:17,18

٣٤ : ١٧، ١٨

*The righteous cried, and the Lord hearkened to them, and delivered them out of all their afflictions. The Lord is near to them that are of a contrite heart; and will save the lowly in spirit. Alleluia.

الصِّدِّيقُونَ صَرَخُوا وَالرَّبُّ اسْتَجَابَ لَهُمْ، وَمِنْ جَمِيعِ شَدَائِدِهِمْ نَجَّاهُمْ. قَرِيبٌ هُوَ الرَّبُّ مِنَ الْمُنْسَحِقي القَلْبِ، وَالْمُتَواضِعِينَ بِالرُّوحِ يُخَلِّصهمْ. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint Mathew

الإنجيل من متى

10:16-22

١٠ : ١٦ − ٢٢

*Behold I send you as sheep in the midst of wolves. Be ye therefore wise as serpents and simple as doves. But beware of men. For they will deliver you up in councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues. And you shall be brought before governors, and before kings for my sake, for a testimony to them and to the Gentiles: But when they shall deliver you up, take no thought how or what to speak: for it shall be given you in that hour what to speak. For it is not you that speak, but the Spirit of your Father that speaketh in you. The brother also shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the son: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and shall put them to death. And you shall be hated by all men for my name's sake: but he that shall persevere unto the end, he shall be saved. Glory be to God forever.

هَا أَنَا أُرْسِلُكُمْ كَخِرَافٍ في وَسَطِ ذِئَابٍ فَكُونُوا حُكَمَاءَ كَالْحَيَّاتِ وَبُسَطَاءَ كَالْحَمَامِ. وَاحْذَرُوا مِنَ النَّاسِ؛ لأنهُمْ سَيُسَلِّمُونَكُمْ إلى مَجَالِسَ وفي مَجَامِعِهِمْ يَجْلِدُونَكُمْ. وَتُقَدَّمُونَ أَمَامَ مُلُوكٍ وَوُلاةٍ مِنْ أَجْلِي شَهَادَةً لَهُمْ وَلِلأُمَمِ. فَمَتَى أَسْلَمُوكُمْ فَلا تَهْتَمُّوا كَيْفَ أوْ بِمَا تَتَكَلَّمُونَ؛ لأنكُمْ تُعْطَوْنَ في تِلْكَ السَّاعَةِ مَا تَتَكَلَّمُونَ بِهِ. لأنكُمْ لَسْتُمْ أَنْتُمُ الْمُتَكَلِّمِينَ بَلْ رُوحُ أَبِيكُمْ الَّذِي يَتَكَلَّمُ فِيكُمْ. وَسَيُسَلِّمُ الأَخُ أَخَاهُ إلى الْمَوْتِ وَيُسَلِّمُ الأَبُ وَلَدَهُ، وَيَقُومُ الأَوْلادُ عَلَى آبَائِهِمْ وَيَقْتُلُونَهُمْ. وَتَكُونُونَ مُبْغَضِينَ مِنَ الْجَمِيعِ مِنْ أَجْلِ اسْمِي، وَالَّذِي يَصْبِرُ إلى الْمُنْتَهَى فَهَذَا يَخْلُصُ. وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

*Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but out of them all Lord will deliver them. He keeps all their bones: not one of them shall be broken. Alleluia.

كَثِيرَةٌ هيَ أَحْزَانُ الصِّدِّيقِينَ، وَمِنْ جَمِيعِهَا يُنَجِّيهِمِ الرَّبُّ. يَحْفَظُ الرَّبُّ جَمِيعَ عِظَامِهِمْ. وَوَاحِدةٌ مِنْهَا لا تَنْكَسِرُ. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint Mark

الإنجيل من مرقس

8:34-9:1

٨ : ٣٤ − ٩ : ١

*And calling the multitude together with his disciples, he said to them: If any man will follow me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life, shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel, shall save it. For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? For he that shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, in this adulterous and sinful generation: the Son of man also will be ashamed of him, when he shall come in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. And he said to them: Amen I say to you, that there are some of them that stand here, who shall not taste death, till they see the kingdom of God coming in power. Christ is transfigured. He casts out the dumb spirit. He teaches humility and to avoid scandal. And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter and James and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves, and was transfigured before them. Glory be to God forever.

وَدَعَا الْجَمْعَ مَعَ تَلاَمِيذِهِ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: "مَنْ أَرَادَ أَنْ يَأْتِيَ وَرَائِي فَلْيُنْكِرْ نَفْسَهُ وَيَحْمِلْ صَلِيبَهُ وَيَتْبَعْنِي. لأنَّ مَنْ أَرَادَ أَنْ يُخَلِّصَ نَفْسَهُ يُهْلِكُهَا، وَمَنْ يُهْلِكُ نَفْسَهُ مِنْ أَجْلِي وَمِنْ أَجْلِ الإِنْجِيلِ فَهُوَ يُخَلِّصُهَا. لأنهُ مَاذا يَنْتَفِعُ الإنْسَانُ لَوْ رَبِحَ الْعَالَمَ كُلَّهُ وَخَسِرَ نَفْسَهُ؟ أوْ مَاذا يُعْطِي الإنْسَانُ فِدَاءً عَنْ نَفْسِهِ؟ لأنَّ مَنْ يَخْزَى بِأنْ يَعْتَرِفَ بِي وَبِكَلامِي في هذَا الْجِيلِ الْفَاسِدِ وَالْخَاطِئ، فَإنَّ ابْنَ الإنْسَانِ أيْضَاً يَسْتَحِي بِهِ مَتَى جَاءَ في مَجْدِ أبِيهِ مَعَ مَلائِكَتِهِ الْقِدِّيسِينَ". وَكَانَ يَقُولُ لَهُمْ: "الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: إنَّ قَوْمَاً مِنَ الْقِيَامِ هَهُنَا لا يَذُوقُونَ الْمَوْتَ حَتَّى يَرَوْا مَلَكُوتَ اللَّهِ قَدْ أَتَى بِقُوَّةٍ". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

The Pauline Epistle from Romans

البولس من رومية

8:28-39

٨ : ٢٨ − ٣٩

*And we know that to them that love God, all things work together unto good, to such as, according to his purpose, are called to be saints. For whom he foreknew, he also predestinated to be made conformable to the image of his Son; that he might be the firstborn amongst many brethren. And whom he predestinated, them he also called. And whom he called, them he also justified. And whom he justified, them he also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who is against us? He that spared not even his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how hath he not also, with him, given us all things? Who shall accuse against the elect of God? God that justifieth. Who is he that shall condemn? Christ Jesus that died, yea that is risen also again; who is at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who then shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation? or distress? or famine? or nakedness? or danger? or persecution? or the sword? (As it is written: For thy sake we are put to death all the day long. We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.) But in all these things we overcome, because of him that hath loved us. For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor might, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. The grace of God the Father be with you all. Amen.

وَنَحْنُ نَعْلَمُ أنَّ الَّذِينَ يُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ، وهُمُ الَّذِينَ دَعَاهُمْ حَسَبَ قَصْدِهِ السَّابِقِ، يَجْعَلُ كُلَّ الأشياءِ تَعْمَلُ مَعَهُمْ لِلْخَيْرِ؛ لأنَّ الَّذِينَ سَبَقَ فَعَرَفَهُمْ، سَبَقَ أيْضاً فَعَيَّنَهُمْ شُرَكَاءَ صُورَةِ ابْنِهِ؛ لِيَكُونَ هُوَ بِكْراً بَيْنَ إخْوَةٍ كَثِيرِينَ. وَالَّذِينَ سَبَقَ فَعَيَّنَهُمْ، فَهَؤُلاءِ دَعَاهُمْ أيْضاً. وَالَّذِينَ دَعَاهُمْ، فَهَؤُلاءِ بَرَّرَهُمْ أيْضاً. وَالَّذِينَ بَرَّرَهُمْ، فَهَؤُلاءِ مَجَّدَهُمْ أيْضاً. فَمَاذَا نَقُولُ لِهَذَا؟ إنْ كَانَ اللَّهُ يُجَاهِدُ عَنَّا، فَمَنْ يَقْدِرْ عَلَى مُقَاوَمتِنا؟ الَّذِي لَمْ يُشْفِقْ عَلَى ابْنِهِ ذَاتِهِ، بَلْ بَذَلَهُ لأَجْلِنَا أَجْمَعِينَ، كَيْفَ لا يَهَبُنَا أيْضاً مَعَهُ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ؟ مَنْ يَسْتَطِيعُ أنْ يَشْتَكِي عَلَى مُخْتَارِي اللَّهِ؟ اللَّهُ هُوَ الَّذِي يُبَرِّرُ. مَنْ يَقدِرُ أنْ يُلْقِي لِلدِّينُونَةِ؟ هُوَ الْمَسِيحُ يَسُوعُ الَّذِي مَاتَ، بَلْ بِالْحَرِيِّ قَامَ أيْضاً مِنْ بَيْنِ الأَمْوَاتِ، الَّذِي هُوَ أيْضاً مُقِيمٌ عَنْ يَمِينِ اللَّهِ، الَّذِي أيْضاً يَشْفَعُ فِينَا. مَنْ يَقْدِرُ أنْ يَفْصِلَنَا عَنْ مَحَبَّةِ الْمَسِيحِ؟ أَشِدَّةٌ أَمْ ضِيْقٌ أَمْ اضْطِهَادٌ أَمْ جُوعٌ أَمْ عُرْيٌ أَمْ خَطَرٌ أَمْ سَيْفٌ؟ كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ: "إنَّنَا مِنْ أَجْلِكَ نُقْتَلُ كُلَّ النَّهَارِ. قَدْ حُسِبْنَا مِثْلَ خِرَافٍ لِلذَّبْحِ". وَلكِنَّنَا في هَذِهِ جَمِيعِهَا تَعْظُمُ غَلْبَتُنَا بِالَّذِي أَحَبَّنَا. فَإنِّي مُتَيَقِّنٌ أَنهُ لا مَوْتَ وَلا حَيَاةَ، وَلا مَلاَئِكَةَ وَلا رُؤَسَاءَ، وَلا أُمُورَ حَاضِرةً وَلا مُسْتَقْبَلَةً، وَلا قُوَّاتِ، وَلا عُلْوَ وَلا عُمْقَ، وَلا خَلِيقَةَ أُخْرَى، تَقْدِرُ أنْ تَفْصِلَنَا عَنْ مَحَبَّةِ اللَّهِ التي في الْمَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ رَبِّنَا. نعمةُ اللَّهِ الآبِ فَلْتَحِلَّ عَلَى أرواحِنا يا آبائي وإخْوَتي. آمين.

The Catholic Epistle from 1 Peter

الكاثوليكون من بطرس الأولى

4:1-11

٤ : ١ − ١١

*Christ therefore having suffered in the flesh, be you also armed with the same thought: for he that hath suffered in the flesh, hath ceased from sins: That now he may live the rest of his time in the flesh, not after the desires of men, but according to the will of God. 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.

فَإذْ قَدْ تَألَّمَ الْمَسِيحُ بِالْجَسَدِ عَنَّا، تَسَلَّحُوا أَنْتُمْ أيْضاً بِهذَا الْمِثَالِ. فَإنَّ مَنْ تَألَّمَ بِالْجَسَدِ، كُفَّ عَنِ الْخَطِيَّةِ، لِكَيْ لا يَعِيشَ أيْضاً الزَّمَانَ الْبَاقِيَ في الْجَسَدِ، لِشَهَوَاتِ النَّاسِ، بَلْ لإرَادَةِ اللَّهِ. 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 هذَا بُشِّرَ الْمَوْتَى أيْضاً، لِكَيْ يُدَانُوا حَسَبَ النَّاسِ بِالْجَسَدِ، وَلكِنْ لِيَحْيَوْا حَسَبَ اللَّهِ بِالرُّوحِ. وَإنَّمَا نِهَايَةُ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِ اقْتَرَبَتْ، فَتَعَقَّلُوا إذْاً 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.

16:16-34

١٦ : ١٦ − ٣٤

*And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain girl, having a pythonical spirit, met us, who brought to her masters much gain by divining. This same following Paul and us, cried out, saying: These men are the servants of the most high God, who preach unto you the way of salvation. And this she did many days. But Paul being grieved, turned, and said to the spirit: I command thee, in the name of Jesus Christ, to go out from her. And he went out the same hour. But her masters, seeing that the hope of their gain was gone, apprehending Paul and Silas, brought them into the marketplace to the rulers. And presenting them to the magistrates, they said: These men disturb our city, being Jews; And preach a fashion which it is not lawful for us to receive nor observe, being Romans. And the people ran together against them; and the magistrates rending off their clothes, commanded them to be beaten with rods. And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the gaoler to keep them diligently. Who having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks. And at midnight, Paul and Silas praying, praised God. And they that were in prison, heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken. And immediately all the doors were opened, and the bands of all were loosed. And the keeper of the prison, awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the doors of the prison open, drawing his sword, would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled. But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying: Do thyself no harm, for we all are here. Then calling for a light, he went in, and trembling, fell down at the feet of Paul and Silas. And bringing them out, he said: Masters, what must I do, that I may be saved? But they said: Believe in the Lord Jesus, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And they preached the word of the Lord to him and to all that were in his house. And he, taking them the same hour of the night, washed their stripes, and himself was baptized, and all his house immediately. And when he had brought them into his own house, he laid the table for them, and rejoiced with all his house, believing God. The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed, in the holy Church of God. Amen.

وَحَدَثَ بَيْنَمَا كُنَّا ذَاهِبِينَ لِلصَّلاةِ، أنَّ جَارِيَةً بِهَا رُوحُ عِرَافَةٍ قَدْ خَرَجَتْ لاسْتَقْبَالِنَا. وَكَانَتْ تُكْسِبْ مَوَالِيَهَا مَكْسَباً كَثِيراً بِعِرَافَتِهَا. هَذِهِ اتَّبَعَتْ بُولُسَ وَإيَّانَا وَكَانَتْ تَصِيحُ قَائِلَةً: "هَؤُلاءِ الرِّجَالُ الَّذِينَ يُبَشِّرونكُمْ بِطَرِيقِ الْخَلاَصِ، هُمْ عَبِيدُ اللَّهِ الْعَلِيِّ". وَكَانَتْ تَفْعَلُ هَذَا أياماً كَثِيرَةً. فَتَضَجَّرَ بُولُسُ مِنْ ذلِكَ وَالْتَفَتَ إلى الرُّوحِ وَقَالَ: "أنَا آمُرُكَ بِاسْمِ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ أنْ تَخْرُجَ مِنْهَا!". فَخَرَجَ في تِلْكَ السَّاعَةِ. فَلَمَّا رَأَى مَوَالِيهَا أنهُ قَدْ خَرَجَ مِنْهَا رَجَاءُ مَكْسَبِهِمْ، قَبَضُوا عَلَى بُولُسَ وَسِيلاَ وَجَرُّوهُمَا إلى السُّوقِ إلى الْحُكَّامِ. وَإذْ أَتَوْا بِهِمَا إلى الْوُلاَةِ، قَالُوا: "هَذَانِ الرَّجُلاَنِ يُبَلْبِلاَنِ مَدِينَتَنَا؛ لأَنهُمَا يَهُودِيَّانِ، وَيُنَادِيَانِ لَنَا بِعَوَائِدَ أُخَرَ لا يَجُوزُ لَنَا أنْ نَقْبَلَهَا وَلا أنْ نَعْمَلَ بِهَا، إذْ نَحْنُ رُومَانِيُّونَ". فَقَامَ الْجَمْعُ عَلَيْهِمَا، وَمَزَّقَ الْوُلاَةُ ثِيابَهُمَا وَأَمَرُوا أنْ يُضْرَبَا بِالْعِصِيِّ. فَلَمَّا ضَرَبُوهمَا ضَرَبَاتٍ كَثِيرَةً أَلْقُوهُمَا في السِّجْنِ، وَأَوْصَوْا حَافِظَ السِّجْنِ أنْ يَحْرُسَهُمَا بِضَبْطٍ. وَهُوَ إذْ أَخَذَ وَصِيَّةً مِثْلَ هَذِهِ، أَلْقَاهُمَا في السِّجْنِ الدَّاخِلِيِّ، وَضَبَطَ أَرْجُلَهُمَا في الْمِقْطَرَةِ. وَفي نَحْوِ نِصْفِ اللَّيْلِ كَانَ بُولُسُ وَسِيلاَ يُصَلِّيَانِ وَيُسَبِّحَانِ اللَّهَ، وَالْمَسْجُونُونَ يَسْمَعُونَهُمَا. فَحَدَثَتْ بَغْتَةً زَلْزَلَةٌ عَظِيمَةٌ حَتَّى تَزَعْزَعَتْ أَسَاسَاتُ السِّجْنِ، فَانْفَتَحَتِ الأَبْوَابُ كُلُّهَا، وَانْفَكَّتْ قُيُودُهُمْ جَمِيعَاً. وَلَمَّا اسْتَيْقَظَ حَافِظُ السِّجْنِ، وَرَأَى أَبْوَابَ السِّجْنِ مَفْتُوحَةً، اسْتَلَّ سَيْفَهُ وَكَانَ مُزْمِعاً أنْ يَقْتُلَ نَفْسَهُ، ظَانَّاً أنَّ الْمَسْجُونِينَ قَدْ هَرَبُوا. فَنَادَى بُولُسُ بِصَوْتٍ عَظِيمٍ قَائِلاً: "لا تَفْعَلْ بِنَفْسِكَ شَيْئاً رَدِيَّاً؛ لأنَّ جَمِيعَنَا هَهُنَا!". فَأَخَذَ ضَوْءاً وَنَهَضَ إلى دَاخِلٍ، وَخَرَّ لِبُولُسَ وَسِيلاَ وَهُوَ مُرْتَعِدٌ، ثُمَّ أَخْرَجَهُمَا وَقَالَ لَهُمَا: "يَا سَيِّدَيَّ، مَاذَا يَنْبَغِي لِي أنْ أَفْعَلَهُ لِكَيْ أَخْلُصَ؟". أمَّا هُمَا فَقَالاَ: "آمِنْ بِالرَّبِّ يَسُوعَ فَتَخْلُصَ أَنْتَ وَأَهْلُ بَيْتِكَ". وَكَلَّمَاهُ وَجَمِيعَ أَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ بِكَلِمَةِ الرَّبِّ. فَأَخَذَهُمَا في تِلْكَ السَّاعَةِ مِنَ اللَّيْلِ وَغَسَّلَهُمَا مِنَ الْجِرَاحَاتِ، وَاعْتَمَدَ في الْحَالِ هُوَ وَالَّذِينَ لَهُ أَجْمَعُونَ. وَأَدْخَلَهُمَا في بَيْتِهِ وَقَدَّمَ لَهُمَا مَائِدَةً، وَتَهَلَّلَ مَعَ جَمِيعِ بَيْتِهِ إذْ قَدْ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ. لَمْ تَزَلْ كَلِمَةُ الرَّبِّ تَنْمُو وتَكْثُرُ وتَعْتَزُّ وتَثْبُتُ، في بِيعَةِ اللَّهِ الْمُقَدَّسَةِ. آمين.

نُورٌ أَشْرَقَ لِلصِّدِّيقِينَ، وَفَرَحٌ لِلْمُسْتَقِيمِينَ بِقَلْبِهِمْ. افْرَحُوا أيهَا الصِّدِّيقُونَ بِالرَّبِّ، وَاعْتَرِفُوا لِذِكْرِ قُدْسِهِ. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint Luke

الإنجيل من لوقا

21:12-19

٢١ : ١٢ − ١٩

*But before all these things, they will lay their hands upon you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and into prisons, dragging you before kings and governors, for my name's sake. And it shall happen unto you for a testimony. Lay it up therefore into your hearts, not to meditate before how you shall answer: For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to resist and gainsay. And you shall be betrayed by your parents and brethren, and kinsmen and friends; and some of you they will put to death. And you shall be hated by all men for my name's sake. But a hair of your head shall not perish. In your patience you shall possess your souls. Glory be to God forever.

في قُلُوبِكُمْ أنْ لا تَهْتَمُّوا مِنْ قَبْلُ بِمَا تَحْتَجُّونَ بِهِ؛ لأني أَنا أُعْطِيكُمْ فَمَاً وَحِكْمَةً التي لا يَقْدِرُ جَمِيعُ مُعَانِدِيكُمْ أنْ يُقَاوِمُوهَا أَوْ يُنَاقِضُوهَا. وَسَوْفَ تُسَلَّمُونَ مِنَ الْوَالِدَيْنِ وَالإخْوَةِ وَالأَقْرِبَاءِ وَالأَصْدِقَاءِ، وَيَقْتُلُونَ مِنْكُمْ. وَتَكُونُونَ مُبْغَضِينَ مِنَ الْجَمِيعِ لأَجْلِ اسْمِي. وَشَعْرَةٌ مِنْ رُؤُوسِكُمْ لا تَهْلِكُ. بِصَبْرِكُمُ تَقْتَنُونَ أنْفُسَكُمْ. وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.
