Alleluia.

الرَّبُّ مَلَكَ عَلَى جَمِيعِ الأُمَمِ. اللَّهُ جَلَسَ عَلَى عَرْشِهِ الْمُقَدَّسِ. رُؤَسَاءُ الشُّعُوبِ اجْتَمَعُوا مَعَ إِلَهِ إبْرَاهِيمَ؛ لأنَّ أعِزَّاءَ اللَّهِ قَد ارْتَفَعُوا جِدّاً. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint John

الإنجيل من يوحنا

15:7-16

١٥ : ٧ − ١٦

*If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask whatever you will, and it shall be done unto you. In this is my Father glorified; that you bring forth very much fruit, and become my disciples. As the Father hath loved me, I also have loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love; as I also have kept my Father's commandments, and do abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and your joy may be filled. This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends, if you do the things that I command you. I will not now call you servants: for the servant knoweth not what his lord doth. But I have called you friends: because all things whatsoever I have heard of my Father, I have made known to you. You have not chosen me: but I have chosen you; and have appointed you, that you should go, and should bring forth fruit; and your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. Glory be to God forever.

إنْ ثَبَتُّمْ فيَّ وَثَبَتَ كَلاَمِي فِيكُمْ، تَطْلُبُوا مَا تُرِيدُونَ فَيَكُونُ لَكُمْ. بِهذَا يَتَمَجَّدُ أبِي: أنْ تَأْتوا بِثَمَرٍ كَثِيرٍ فَتَكُونُونَ تَلاَمِيذِي. كَمَا أَحَبَّنِي أبِي كَذلِكَ أَحْبَبْتُكُمْ أَنا. اُثْبُتُوا في مَحَبَّتِي. إنْ حَفِظْتُمْ وَصَايَايَ تَثْبُتُوا في مَحَبَّتِي، كَمَا أني أَنا قَدْ حَفِظْتُ وَصَايَا أبِي وَأَنا ثَابِتٌ في مَحَبَّتِهِ. كَلَّمْتُكُمْ بِهذَا لِكَيْ يَثْبُتَ فَرَحِي فِيكُمْ وَيُكْمَلَ فَرَحُكُم. هذِهِ هيَ وَصِيَّتِي: أنْ تُحِبُّوا بَعْضُكُمْ بَعْضَاً كَمَا أَحْبَبْتُكُمْ. لَيْسَ لأَحَدٍ حُبٌّ أَعْظَمُ مِنْ هذَا: أنْ يَضَعَ أَحَدٌ نَفْسَهُ لأَجْلِ صَدِيقِهِ. وَأنْتُمْ أَحِبَّائِي إنْ عَمَلْتُمْ كُلَّ مَا أَوْصَيْتُكُمْ بِهِ. وَلَسْتُ أَدْعُوكُمْ عَبِيدَاً؛ لأنَّ الْعَبْدَ لا يَعْلَمُ مَا يَصْنَعُ سَيِّدُهُ، لكِنِّي قَدْ دَعَوْتُكُمْ أَصْدِقَائِي لأني أَعْلَمْتُكُمْ بِكُلِّ مَا سَمِعْتُهُ مِنْ أبِي. لَسْتُمْ أَنْتُم اخْتَرْتُمُونِي بَلْ أَنا اخْتَرْتُكُمْ وَأُطلِقُكُمْ لِتَذْهَبُوا وَتَأْتوا بِثَمَرٍ، وَيَدُومَ ثَمَرُكُمْ، لِكَيْ يُعْطِيَكُمُ الآبُ كُلَّ مَا تَسْأَلُونَهُ بِاسْمِي. وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

The Gospel according to Saint Luke

الإنجيل من لوقا

16:19-31

١٦ : ١٩ − ٣١

*There was a certain rich man, who was clothed in purple and fine linen; and feasted sumptuously every day. And there was a certain beggar, named Lazarus, who lay at his gate, full of sores, Desiring to be filled with the crumbs that fell from the rich man's table, and no one did give him; moreover the dogs came, and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom. And the rich man also died: and he was buried in hell. And lifting up his eyes when he was in torments, he saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom: And he cried, and said: Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, to cool my tongue: for I am tormented in this flame. And Abraham said to him: Son, remember that thou didst receive good things in thy lifetime, and likewise Lazareth evil things, but now he is comforted; and thou art tormented. And besides all this, between us and you, there is fixed a great chaos: so that they who would pass from hence to you, cannot, nor from thence come hither. And he said: Then, father, I beseech thee, that thou wouldst send him to my father's house, for I have five brethren, That he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torments. And Abraham said to him: They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. But he said: No, father Abraham: but if one went to them from the dead, they will do penance. And he said to him: If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they believe, if one rise again from the dead. Glory be to God forever.

كَانَ إنْسَانٌ غَنِيٌّ وَكَانَ يَلْبَسُ الأَرْجُوانَ وَالْحَرِيرَ وَهُوَ يَتَنَعَّمُ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ مُتَرَفِّهَاً. وَكَانَ أيْضاً مِسْكِينٌ اسْمُهُ لِعَازَرُ، مَطْرُوحاً عِنْدَ بَابِهِ مَضْرُوبَاً بِالْجُرُوحِ، وَيَشْتَهِي أنْ يَمْلأَ بَطْنَهُ مِنَ الْفُتَاتِ الَّذِي يَسْقُطُ مِنْ مَائِدَةِ الْغَنِيِّ، بَلْ كَانَتِ الْكِلاَبُ تَأْتِي وَتَلْحَسُ جُرُوحَهُ. فَمَاتَ الْمِسْكِينُ وَحَمَلَتْهُ الْمَلاَئِكَةُ إلى حِضْنِ إبْرَاهِيمَ. وَمَاتَ الْغَنِيُّ أيْضاً وَدُفِنَ، فَرَفَعَ عَيْنَيْهِ وَهُوَ في الجَحِيمِ في الْعَذَابِ، وَرَأَى إبْرَاهِيمَ مِنْ بَعِيدٍ وَلِعَازَرَ في حِضْنِهِ، فَنَادَى وَقَالَ: يَا أَبِي إبْرَاهِيمَ، ارْحَمْنِي، وَأَرْسِلْ لي لِعَازَرَ لِيَبُلَّ طَرَفَ إصْبِعِهِ بِمَاءٍ وَيُبَرِّدَ لِسَانِي، لأني مُعَذَّبٌ في هذَا اللَّهِيبِ. فَقَالَ لَهُ إبْرَاهِيمُ: يَا ابْنِي، اذْكُرْ أَنكَ اسْتَوْفَيْتَ خَيْرَاتِكَ في حَيَاتِكَ، وَكَذلِكَ لِعَازَرُ الْبَلاَيَا. وَالآنَ هُوَ يَتَعَزَّى هُنَا وَأَنْتَ تَتَعذَّبُ. وَفَوْقَ هذَا كُلِّهِ، تُوجَدُ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَكُمْ هُوَّةٌ ثَابِتَةٌ عَظِيمَةٌ، حَتَّى إنَّ الَّذِينَ يُرِيدُونَ الْعُبُورَ مِنْ هَهُنَا إلَيْكُمْ لا يَقْدِرُونَ، وَلا الَّذِينَ مِنْ عِنْدِكُمْ أنْ يَعْبُرُوا إلَيْنَا. فَقَالَ: أَسْأَلُكَ إذَاً يَا أَبتِ، أنْ تُرْسِلَهُ إلى بَيْتِ أبِي؛ لأنَّ لِي خَمْسَةَ إخْوَةٍ، حَتَّى يَشْهَدَ لَهُمْ لِكَيْلاَ يَأْتُوا هُمْ أيْضاً إلى مَوْضِعِ الْعَذَابِ هذَا. فَقَالَ لَهُ إبْرَاهِيمُ: عِنْدَهُمْ مُوسَى وَالأنْبِيَاءُ، فَلْيَسْمَعُوا مِنْهُمْ. فَقَالَ: لا، يَا أَبِي إبْرَاهِيمَ، بَلْ إذَا مَضَى إلَيْهِمْ وَاحِدٌ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ يَتُوبُونَ. فَقَالَ لَهُ: إنْ كَانُوا لا يَسْمَعُونَ مِنْ مُوسَى وَالأنْبِيَاءِ، وَلا إنْ قَامَ وَاحِدٌ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ يُصَدِّقُونَ. وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

The Pauline Epistle from Hebrews

البولس من عبرانيين

11:1-10

١١ : ١ − ١٠

*Now faith is the substance of things to be hoped for, the evidence of things that appear not. For by this the ancients obtained a testimony. By faith we understand that the world was framed by the word of God; that from invisible things visible things might be made. By faith Abel offered to God a sacrifice exceeding that of Cain, by which he obtained a testimony that he was just, God giving testimony to his gifts; and by it he being dead yet speaketh. By faith Henoch was translated, that he should not see death; and he was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had testimony that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please God. For he that cometh to God, must believe that he is, and is a rewarder to them that seek him. By faith Noe, having received an answer concerning those things which as yet were not seen, moved with fear, framed the ark for the saving of his house, by the which he condemned the world; and was instituted heir of the justice which is by faith. By faith he that is called Abraham, obeyed to go out into a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he abode in the land, dwelling in cottages, with Isaac and Jacob, the co-heirs of the same promise. For he looked for a city that hath foundations; whose builder and maker is God. The grace of God the Father be with you all. Amen.

وَأمَّا الإيمَانُ فَهُوَ الثِّقَةُ بِمَا يُرْجَى وَالإيقَانُ بِأُمُورٍ لا تُرَى. فَإنَّهُ في هذا شُهِدَ لِلْقُدَمَاءِ. بِالإيمَانِ نَفْهَمُ أنَّ الدُّهُورَ أُتْقِنَتْ بِكَلِمَةِ اللَّهِ، حَتَّى لَمْ يَتَكَوَّنْ مَا يُرَى مِمَّا هُوَ ظَاهِرٌ. بِالإيمَانِ قَرَّبَ هَابِيلُ لِلَّهِ ذَبِيحَةً أَفْضَلَ مِنْ قَايِينَ، فَبِهِ شُهِدَ لَهُ أنهُ صِدِّيقٌ، إذْ شَهِدَ اللَّهُ لِقَرَابِينِهِ. وَبِهِ، وَإنْ مَاتَ، يَتَكَلَّمُ بَعْدُ! بِالإيمَانِ نُقِلَ أَخْنُوخُ لِكَيْ لا يَرَى الْمَوْتَ وَلَمْ يُوجَدْ لأنَّ اللَّهَ نَقَلَهُ. إذْ قَبْلَ نَقْلِهِ شُهِدَ لَهُ بِأَنهُ قَدْ أَرْضَى اللَّهَ. وَلكِنْ بِدُونِ إيمَانٍ لا يُمْكِنُ إرْضَاؤُهُ؛ لأنهُ يَجِبُ أنَّ الَّذِي يَأْتِي إلى اللَّهِ يُؤْمِنُ بِأَنهُ مَوْجُودٌ، وَأَنهُ يَصيرُ مُجَازِياً لِلَّذِينَ يَطْلُبُونَهُ. بِالإيمَانِ نُوحٌ لَمَّا أُوحِيَ إلَيْهِ عَنْ أُمُورٍ لَمْ تُرَ بَعْدُ خَافَ، وَصَنَعَ فُلْكاً لِخَلاَصِ بَيْتِهِ. هَذَا الَّذِي مِنْ قِبَلِهِ دَانَ الْعَالَمَ، وَصَارَ وَارِثاً لِلْبِرِّ الَّذِي لِلإيمَانِ. بِالإيمَانِ إبْرَاهِيمُ لَمَّا دُعِيَ أَطَاعَ أنْ يَخْرُجَ إلى الْمَكَانِ الَّذِي كَانَ عَتِيداً أَنْ يَأْخُذَهُ مِيرَاثاً، فَخَرَجَ وَهُوَ لا يَعْلَمُ إلى أَيْنَ يَتَوَجَّهُ. بِالإيمَانِ تَغَرَّبَ في أَرْضِ الْمَوْعِدِ كَأنهَا لَيْسَتْ أَرْضَهُ، سَاكِناً في خِيَامٍ مَعَ إسْحَقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ شَرِيكَيْهِ في مِيرَاثِ هذَا الْمَوْعِدِ بِعَيْنِهِ؛ لأنهُ كَانَ يَنْتَظِرُ الْمَدِينَةَ الَّتِي لَهَا الأَسَاسَاتُ، الَّتِي صَانِعُهَا وَخَالِقُهَا هُوَ اللَّهُ. نعمةُ اللَّهِ الآبِ فَلْتَحِلَّ عَلَى أرواحِنا يا آبائي وإخْوَتي. آمين.

The Catholic Epistle from James

الكاثوليكون من يعقوب

2:14-23

٢ : ١٤ − ٢٣

*What shall it profit, my brethren, if a man say he hath faith, but hath not works? Shall faith be able to save him? And if a brother or sister be naked, and want daily food: And one of you say to them: Go in peace, be ye warmed and filled; yet give them not those things that are necessary for the body, what shall it profit? So faith also, if it have not works, is dead in itself. But some man will say: Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without works; and I will shew thee, by works, my faith. Thou believest that there is one God. Thou dost well: the devils also believe and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, offering up Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou, that faith did co-operate with his works; and by works faith was made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled, saying: Abraham believed God, and it was reputed to him to justice, and he was called the friend of God. 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.

مَا الْمَنْفَعَةُ يَا إخْوَتِي إنْ قَالَ أَحَدٌ إنَّ لَهُ إيمَاناً وَلكِنْ لَيْسَ لَهُ أَعْمَالٌ؟ هَلْ يَقْدِرُ الإيمَانُ أنْ يُخَلِّصَهُ؟ إنْ كَانَ أَخٌ أَوْ أُخْتٌ عُرْيَانَيْنِ وَمُحْتَاجَيْنِ لِلْقُوتِ الْيَوْمِيِّ، فَقَالَ لَهُمَا أَحَدُكُمُ: "اذْهَبَا بِسَلاَمٍ، اسْتَدْفِئَا وَاشْبَعَا " وَلكِنْ لَمْ تُعْطُوهُمَا احْتِيَاجَ الْجَسَدِ، فَمَا الْمَنْفَعَةُ؟ هكَذَا الإيمَانُ أيْضاً، إنْ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ أَعْمَالٌ، فَهُوَ مَيِّتٌ في ذَاتِهِ. لكِنْ يَقُولُ وَاحِدٌ: "أَنْتَ لَكَ إيمَانٌ، وَأَنا لِي أَعْمَالٌ " أَرِنِي إيمَانَكَ بِدُونِ أَعْمَالِكَ، وَأَنا أُرِيكَ إيمَانِي بِأَعْمَالِي. أَنْتَ تُؤْمِنُ أنَّ اللَّهَ وَاحِدٌ. حَسَناً تَفْعَلُ. وَالشَّيَاطِينُ أيْضاً يُؤْمِنُونَ وَيَقْشَعِرُّونَ! وَلكِنْ هَلْ تُرِيدُ أنْ تَعْلَمَ أيهَا الإنْسَانُ الْبَاطِلُ أنَّ الإيمَانَ بِدُونِ أَعْمَالٍ مَيِّتٌ؟ أَلَمْ يَتَبَرَّرْ إبْرَاهِيمُ أَبونَا بِالأَعْمَالِ، إذْ قَدَّمَ إسْحَقَ ابْنَهُ عَلَى الْمَذْبَحِ؟ فَتَرَى أنَّ الإيمَانَ عَمِلَ مَعَ أَعْمَالِهِ، وَبِالأَعْمَالِ أُكْمِلَ الإيمَانُ، وَتَمَّ الْكِتَابُ الْقَائِلُ: "فَآمَنَ إبْرَاهِيمُ بِاللَّهِ فَحُسِبَ لَهُ بِرَّاً " وَدُعِيَ خَلِيلَ اللَّهِ. لا تُحِبُّوا العَالَمَ ولا الأشْيَاءَ التي في العَالَمِ، لأنَّ العَالَمَ يمْضِي وَشَهْوَتُهُ مَعَهُ، وأمَّا مَنْ يَعملُ مَشِيئَةَ اللهِ فإنه يَثْبُتُ إلى الأبدِ. آمين.

٧ : ٢٠ − ٢٤

*At the same time was Moses born, and he was acceptable to God: who was nourished three months in his father's house. And when he was exposed, Pharao's daughter took him up, and nourished him for her own son. And Moses was instructed in all the wisdom of the Egyptians; and he was mighty in his words and in his deeds. And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren, the children of Israel. And when he had seen one of them suffer wrong, he defended him; and striking the Egyptian, he avenged him who suffered the injury. The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed, in the holy Church of God. Amen.

وَفي ذلِكَ الْوَقْتِ وُلِدَ مُوسَى وَكَانَ جَمِيلاً مَرْضِياً عِنْدَ اللَّهِ، هذَا رُبِّيَ ثَلاثَةَ أَشْهُرٍ في بَيْتِ أَبِيهِ. وَلَمَّا طُرِحَ، أَخَذَتْهُ ابْنَةُ فِرْعَوْنَ وَرَبَّتْهُ لِنَفْسِهَا ابْناً. فَتَهَذَّبَ مُوسَى بِكُلِّ حِكْمَةِ الْمِصْرِيِّينَ، وَكَانَ مُقْتَدِراً في كَلاَمِهِ وَفي أَعْمَالِهِ. وَلَمَّا كَمُلَتْ لَهُ مُدَّةُ أَرْبَعِينَ سَنَةً، خَطَرَ عَلَى بَالِهِ أنْ يَفْتَقِدَ إخْوَتَهُ بَنِي إسْرَائِيلَ. وَإذْ رَأَى وَاحِداً مَظْلُومَاً فَتَحَنَّنَ عَلَيْهِ، وَانْتَقَمَ لِلْمَغْلُوبِ، إذْ قَتَلَ الْمِصْرِيَّ. وَكَانَ يَظُنُّ أنَّ إخْوَتَهُ يَفْهَمُونَ أنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى يَدِيْهِ يُعْطِيهِمْ خَلاَصاً. وَأمَّا هُمْ فَلَمْ يَفْهَمُوا. وَفي الْغَدِ ظَهَرَ لآخَرينَ وَهُمْ يَتَخَاصَمُونَ، فَوَفَّقَهُمْ لِلصُلْحِ قَائِلاً: أَنْتُمْ رِجَالٌ إخْوَةٌ. لِمَاذا تَظْلِمُونَ بَعْضُكُمْ بَعْضاً؟ فَجَحَدَهُ الظَّالِمُ لِصَاحِبِهِ قَائِلاً: مَنْ أَقَامَكَ رَئيساً أوْ قَاضِياً عَلَيْنَا؟ أَتُرِيدُ أنْ تَقْتُلَنِي أَنْتَ كَمَا قَتَلْتَ أَمْسِ الْمِصْرِيَّ؟ فَهَرَبَ مُوسَى بِسَبَبِ هَذِهِ الْكَلِمَةِ، وَصَارَ غَرِيباً في أَرْضِ مَدْيَانَ، حَيْثُ وَلَدَ هُنَاك ابْنَيْنِ. وَلَمَّا كَمُلَتْ أَرْبَعُونَ سَنَةً، ظَهَرَ لَهُ مَلاكٌ في بَرِّيَّةِ طُورِ سِينا في لَهِيبِ نَارٍ عَلَى عُلَّيْقَةٍ. فَلَمَّا رَأَى مُوسَى الرُؤيَةَ تَعَجَّبَ. وَفِيمَا هُوَ يَتَقَدَّمُ لِيَتَأمَّلَ، صَارَ صَوْتُ الرَّبِّ قَائِلاً: أَنَا هُوَ إلَهُ آبائِكَ، إلَهُ إبْرَاهِيمَ وَإلَهُ إسْحَقَ وَإلَهُ يَعْقُوبَ. فَارْتَعَدَ مُوسَى وَلَمْ يَجْسُرْ أنْ يَتَأَمَّلَ. فَقَالَ لَهُ الرَّبُّ: اخْلَعْ نَعْلَ رِجْلَيْكَ؛ لأنَّ الْمَوْضِعَ الَّذِي أَنْتَ وَاقِفٌ عَلَيْهِ هُوَ أَرْضٌ مُقَدَّسَةٌ. قَدْ رَأَيْتُ عِيَانَاً مَشَقَّةَ شَعْبِي الَّذِينَ في مِصْرَ، وَسَمِعْتُ أَنِينَهُمْ وَنَزَلْتُ لأُخَلِّصَهُمْ. فَهَلُمَّ الآنَ لأُرْسِلَكَ إلى مِصْرَ. لَمْ تَزَلْ كَلِمَةُ الرَّبِّ تَنْمُو وتَكْثُرُ وتَعْتَزُّ وتَثْبُتُ، في بِيعَةِ اللَّهِ الْمُقَدَّسَةِ. آمين.

The Gospel according to Saint Mark

الإنجيل من مرقس

12:18-27

١٢ : ١٨ − ٢٧

*And there came to him the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying: Master, Moses wrote unto us, that if any man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed to his brother. Now there were seven brethren; and the first took a wife, and died leaving no issue. And the second took her, and died: and neither did he leave any issue. And the third in like manner. And the seven all took her in like manner; and did not leave issue. Last of all the woman also died. In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise again, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife. And Jesus answering, saith to them: Do ye not therefore err, because you know not the scriptures, nor the power of God? For when they shall rise again from the dead, they shall neither marry, nor be married, but are as the angels in heaven. And as concerning the dead that they rise again, have you not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spoke to him, saying: I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. You therefore do greatly err. Glory be to God forever.

وَجَاءَ إلَيْهِ الصَّدُّوقِيُّونَ، الَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ لَيْسَ قِيَامَةٌ، وَسَأَلُوهُ قَائِلِينَ: "يَا مُعَلِّمُ، كَتَبَ لَنَا مُوسَى: إنْ مَاتَ لأَحَدٍ أَخٌ، وَتَرَكَ امْرَأَةً وَلَمْ يُخَلِّفْ أَوْلاَداً، يَتَزَوَّجْهَا أَخُوهُ، وَيُقِمْ نَسْلاً لأَخِيهِ. فَكَانَ عِنْدَنَا سَبْعَةُ إخْوَةٍ. تَزَوَّجَ الأَوَّلُ امْرَأَةً وَمَاتَ، وَلَمْ يَتْرُكْ نَسْلاً. فَتَزَوَّجَهَا الثَّانِي وَمَاتَ، وَلَمْ يَتْرُكْ هُوَ أيْضاً نَسْلاً. وَهكَذَا الثَّالِثُ وَالسَّابعُ، وَلَمْ يَتْرُكُوا نَسْلاً. وَآخِرَ الْكُلِّ مَاتَت الْمَرْأَةُ أيْضاً. فَفِي الْقِيَامَةِ، لِمَنْ مِنْهُمْ تَكُونُ زَوْجَةً؟ لأنَّ السَّبْعَةَ اتَّخَذُوها زَوْجَةً". فَقَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ:" ألَيْسَ لِهذَا تَضِلُّونَ، إذْ لا تَعْرِفُونَ الْكُتُبَ وَلا قُوَّةَ اللَّهِ؟ لأنهُمْ مَتَى قَامُوا مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ لا يَتَزَوَّجُونَ وَلا يَتَزَوَّجْنَ، بَلْ يَصِيرُونَ كَالملائِكَة في السَّمَوَاتِ. وَأمَّا مِنْ جِهَةِ الأَمْوَاتِ إنَّهُمْ يَقُومُونَ: أَفَمَا قَرَأْتُمْ في كِتَابِ مُوسَى، كَيْفَ خَاطَبَهُ اللَّهُ عَلَى الْعُلَّيْقَةِ قَائِلاً: أَنا إِلَهُ إبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِلَهُ إسْحَقَ وَإِلَهُ يَعْقُوبَ؟ لَيْسَ إِلَهَ أَمْوَاتٍ بَلْ إِلَهُ أَحْيَاءٍ. فَأَنْتُمْ إذاً تَضِلُّونَ كَثِيراً". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.
