*O Lord, bow thy heavens, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke. Send forth thine hand from on high; rescue me, and deliver me. Alleluia.

يَارَبُّ طَأْطِئِ السَّمَوَاتِ وَانْزِلْ. الْمِسِ الْجِبَالَ فَتُدَخِّنَ. أَرْسِلْ يَدَكَ مِنَ الْعَلاءِ. أَنْقِذْنِي وَنَجِّنِي. هَلِّلُويَا.

7:36-50

٧ : ٣٦ − ٥٠

*And one of the Pharisees desired him to eat with him. And he went into the house of the Pharisee, and sat down to meat. And behold a woman that was in the city, a sinner, when she knew that he sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment; And standing behind at his feet, she began to wash his feet, with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment. And the Pharisee, who had invited him, seeing it, spoke within himself, saying: This man, if he were a prophet, would know surely who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him, that she is a sinner. And Jesus answering, said to him: Simon, I have somewhat to say to thee. But he said: Master, say it. A certain creditor had two debtors, the one who owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. And whereas they had not wherewith to pay, he forgave them both. Which therefore of the two loveth him most? Simon answering, said: I suppose that he to whom he forgave most. And he said to him: Thou hast judged rightly. And turning to the woman, he said unto Simon: Dost thou see this woman? I entered into thy house, thou gavest me no water for my feet; but she with tears hath washed my feet, and with her hairs hath wiped them. Thou gavest me no kiss; but she, since she came in, hath not ceased to kiss my feet. My head with oil thou didst not anoint; but she with ointment hath anointed my feet. Wherefore I say to thee: Many sins are forgiven her, because she hath loved much. But to whom less is forgiven, he loveth less. And he said to her: Thy sins are forgiven thee. And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves: Who is this that forgiveth sins also? And he said to the woman: Thy faith hath made thee safe, go in peace. Glory be to God forever.

وَسَأَلَهُ وَاحِدٌ مِنَ الْفَرِّيسِيِّينَ أنْ يَأْكُلَ مَعَهُ، فَلَمَّا دَخَلَ بَيْتَ الفَرِّيسِيِّ اتَّكَأَ. وَإذَا امْرَأَةٌ في الْمَدِينَةِ كَانَتْ خَاطِئَةً، إذْ عَلِمَتْ أنهُ مُتَّكِئٌ في بَيْتِ الْفَرِّيسِيِّ، أَخَذَتْ قَارُورَةَ طِيبٍ وَوَقَفَتْ عِنْدَ قَدَمَيْهِ مِنْ وَرَائِهِ بَاكِيَةً، وَابْتَدَأَتْ تَبُلُّ قَدَمَيْهِ بِدُمُوعِهَا، وَتَمْسَحُهُمَا بِشَعْرِ رَأْسِهَا، وَكَانَتْ تُقَبِّلُ قَدَمِيْهِ وَتَدْهَنُهُمَا بِالطِّيبِ. فَلَمَّا رَأَى الْفَرِّيسِيُّ الَّذِي دَعَاهُ (ذَلِكَ)، تَكَلَّمَ في نَفْسِهِ قَائِلاً: "لَوْ كَانَ هَذَا نَبِيَّاً، لَعَلِمَ مَنْ هِيَ الْمَرْأَةُ الَّتي لَمَسَتْهُ وما حَالُها! إنَّهَا لَخَاطِئَةٌ". فَأَجَابَ يَسُوعُ وَقَالَ لَهُ: "يَا سِمْعَانُ، عِنْدِي كلمةٌ أَقُولُهَا لَكَ". أَمَّا هُوَ فَقَالَ: "قُلْ أيهَا الْمُعَلِّمُ". فَأَجَابَ يَسُوعُ وَقَالَ لَهُ: "كَانَ لِمُدَايِنٍ مَدْيُونَانِ. كَانَ عَلَى الْوَاحِدِ خَمْسُ مِئَةِ دِينَارٍ وَعَلَى الآخَرِ خَمْسُونَ. وإذْ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُمَا مَا يُوفِيَانِ سَامَحَهُمَا كليْهِما. فَمَنْ مِنْهُما يُحبُّهُ أَكْثَرَ؟". فَأَجَابَ سِمْعَانُ وَقَالَ: "أَظُنُّ أنَّ الَّذِي سَامَحَهُ بِالأَكْثَرِ". أَمَّا هُوَ فَقَالَ لَهُ: "بِالصَّوَابِ حَكَمْتَ". ثُمَّ الْتَفَتَ إلى الْمَرْأَةِ وَقَالَ لِسِمْعَانَ: أَتَرَى هَذِهِ الْمَرْأَةَ؟ إنِّي دَخَلْتُ بَيْتَكَ، وَمَاءً لأَجْلِ رِجْلَيَّ لَمْ تُعْطِ. أَمَّا هَذِهِ فَقَدْ بَلَّتْ رِجْلَيَّ بِدُمُوعِهَا وَمَسَحَتْهُمَا بِشَعْرِهَا. أَنْتَ لَمْ تُقَبِّلْ فَمِي، وَأَمَّا هَذِهِ فَمُنْذُ دَخَلَتْ بَيْتَكَ لَمْ تَكُفَّ عَنْ تَقْبِيلِ رِجْلَيَّ. بِزَيْتٍ لَمْ تَدْهُنْ رَأْسِي، وَأَمَّا هَذِهِ فَقَدْ دَهَنَتْ بِالطِّيبِ رِجْلَيَّ. مِنْ أَجْلِ ذلِكَ أَقُولُ لَكَ: إنَّ خَطَايَاهَا الْكَثِيرَةَ مَغْفُورَةٌ لَهَا لأَنهَا أَحَبَّتْ كَثِيراً. وَالَّذِي يُغْفَرُ لَهُ قَلِيلٌ يُحِبُّ قَلِيلاً". ثُمَّ قَالَ لَهَا: "مَغْفُورَةٌ لَكِ خَطَايَاكِ". فَابْتَدَأَ الْمُتَّكِئُونَ يَقُولُونَ في أَنْفُسِهِمْ: "مَنْ هُوَ هَذَا الَّذِي يَغْفِرُ خَطَايَا أيْضاً؟". فَقَالَ لِلْمَرْأَةِ: "إيمَانُكِ قَدْ خَلَّصَكِ، اِذْهَبِي بِسَلاَمٍ". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

11:20-28

١١ : ٢٠ − ٢٨

*But if I by the finger of God cast out devils; doubtless the kingdom of God is come upon you. When a strong man armed keepeth his court, those things are in peace which he possesseth. But if a stronger than he come upon him, and overcome him; he will take away all his armour wherein he trusted, and will distribute his spoils. He that is not with me, is against me; and he that gathereth not with me, scattereth. When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through places without water, seeking rest; and not finding, he saith: I will return into my house whence I came out. And when he is come, he findeth it swept and garnished. Then he goeth and taketh with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and entering in they dwell there. And the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. And it came to pass, as he spoke these things, a certain woman from the crowd, lifting up her voice, said to him: Blessed is the womb that bore thee, and the paps that gave thee suck. But he said: Yea rather, blessed are they who hear the word of God, and keep it. Glory be to God forever.

إنْ كُنْتُ أَنَا بِإِصْبَعِ اللَّهِ أُخْرجُ الشَّيَاطِينَ، فَقَدْ أَقْبَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ مَلَكُوتُ اللَّهِ. إذَا تَسَلَّحَ الْقَوِيُّ لِيَحْفَظَ دَارَهُ، فَأَمْوَالُهُ تَكُونُ في أَمَانٍ. وَإذَا جَاءَهُ مَنْ هُوَ أَقْوَى مِنْهُ فَإنَّهُ يَغْلِبُهُ، وَيَأْخُذُ سِلاَحَهُ الَّذِي كَانَ مُتَّكِلاً عَلَيْهِ، وَيُوَزِّعُ غَنَائِمَهُ. مَنْ لَيْسَ مَعِي فَهُوَ عَلَيَّ، وَمَنْ لا يَجْمَعُ مَعِي فَهُوَ يُبَدِّدُ. وَإذَا خَرَجَ الرُّوحُ النَّجِسُ مِنَ الإنْسَانِ، يَجْتَازُ في أَمَاكِنَ لَيْسَ فِيها مَاءٌ يَطْلُبُ رَاحَةً، وَإذْ لا يَجِدُ يَقُولُ حِينَئِذٍ: أَرْجِعُ إلى بَيْتِي الَّذِي خَرَجْتُ مِنْهُ. وَمَتَى جَاءَ يَجِدُهُ فَارِغَاً مَكْنُوسَاً مُزَيَّنَاً. حِينَئِذٍ يَذْهَبُ وَيَأْخُذُ سَبْعَةَ أَرْوَاحٍ آخَرِينَ أَشَرَّ مِنْهُ، فَتَدْخُلُ وَتَسْكُنُ هُنَاكَ، فَتَصِيرُ آوَاخِرُ ذلِكَ الإنْسَانِ أَشَرَّ مِنْ أَوَائِلِهِ!". وَفِيمَا هُوَ يَتَكَلَّمُ بِهَذَا، رَفَعَتِ امْرَأَةٌ صَوْتَهَا مِنَ الْجَمْعِ وَقَالَتْ لَهُ: "طُوبَى لِلْبَطْنِ الَّذِي حَمَلَكَ وَالثَّدْيَيْنِ اللَّذَيْنِ رَضِعْتَهُمَا". أَمَّا هُوَ فَقَالَ لَهَا: "بَلْ طُوبَى لِلَّذِينَ يَسْمَعُونَ كَلامَ اللَّهِ وَيَحْفَظُونَهُ". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

The Pauline Epistle from Romans

البولس من رومية

3:1-4:3

٣ : ١ − ٤ : ٣

*What advantage then hath the Jew, or what is the profit of circumcision? Much every way. First indeed, because the words of God were committed to them. For what if some of them have not believed? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid. But God is true; and every man a liar, as it is written, That thou mayest be justified in thy words, and mayest overcome when thou art judged. But if our injustice commend the justice of God, what shall we say? Is God unjust, who executeth wrath? (I speak according to man.) God forbid: otherwise how shall God judge this world? For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie, unto his glory, why am I also yet judged as a sinner? And not rather (as we are slandered, and as some affirm that we say) let us do evil, that there may come good? whose damnation is just. What then? Do we excel them? No, not so. For we have charged both Jews, and Greeks, that they are all under sin. As it is written: There is not any man just. There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. All have turned out of the way; they are become unprofitable together: there is none that doth good, there is not so much as one. Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have dealt deceitfully. The venom of asps is under their lips. Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: Their feet swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery in their ways: And the way of peace they have not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes. Now we know, that what things soever the law speaketh, it speaketh to them that are in the law; that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may be made subject to God. Because by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified before him. For by the law is the knowledge of sin. But now without the law the justice of God is made manifest, being witnessed by the law and the prophets. Even the justice of God, by faith of Jesus Christ, unto all and upon all them that believe in him: for there is no distinction: For all have sinned, and do need the glory of God. Being justified freely by his grace, through the redemption, that is in Christ Jesus, Whom God hath proposed to be a propitiation, through faith in his blood, to the shewing of his justice, for the remission of former sins, Through the forbearance of God, for the shewing of his justice in this time; that he himself may be just, and the justifier of him, who is of the faith of Jesus Christ. Where is then thy boasting? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the law of faith. For we account a man to be justified by faith, without the works of the law. Is he the God of the Jews only? Is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also. For it is one God, that justifieth circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. Do we, then, destroy the law through faith? God forbid: but we establish the law. Abraham was not justified by works done, as of himself, but by grace and by faith. And that before he was circumcised. Gentiles, by faith, are his children. What shall we say then that Abraham hath found, who is our father according to the flesh. For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory, but not before God. For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was reputed to him unto justice. The grace of God the Father be with you all. Amen.

إذَاً مَا هُوَ فَضْلُ الْيَهُودِيِّ، أَوْ مَا هِيَ مَنْفَعَةُ الْخِتَانِ؟ عَظِيمٌ عَلَى كُلِّ وَجْهٍ! أَمَّا أَوَّلاً فَلأَنهُمُ اسْتُؤْمِنُوا عَلَى أَقْوَالِ اللَّهِ. فَمَاذَا إنْ كَانَ قَوْمٌ لَمْ يُؤْمِنُوا؟ أَفَلَعَلَّ عَدَمَ أَمَانَتِهِمْ يُبْطِلُ أَمَانَةَ اللَّهِ؟ حَاشَا! بَلْ لِيَكُنِ اللَّهُ صَادِقاً وَكُلُّ إنْسَانٍ كَاذِباً. كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ: "لِكَيْ تَتَبَرَّرَ في كَلاَمِكَ، وَتَغْلِبَ مَتَى حُوكِمْتَ". وَلكِنْ إنْ كَانَ ظُلْمُنَا يُثْبِتُ بِرَّ اللَّهِ، فَمَاذَا نَقُولُ؟ أَلَعَلَّ اللَّهَ الَّذِي يَجْلِبُ الْغَضَبَ ظَالِمٌ؟ قُلْتُ هَذَا بِحَسَبِ الإنْسَانِ. حَاشَا! فَكَيْفَ يَدِينُ اللَّهُ الْعَالَمَ؟ فَإنَّهُ إنْ كَانَ صِدْقُ اللَّهِ قَدِ ازْدَادَ بِكَذِبِي لِمَجْدِهِ، فَلِمَاذَا أُدَانُ أَنا بَعْدُ كَخَاطِئٍ؟ وَلَيْسَ كَمَا يُفْتَرَى عَلَيْنَا، وَكَمَا يَزْعُمُ قَوْمٌ أننَا نَقُولُ: "لِنَفْعَلِ السَّيِّآتِ لِتَأْتِيَنَا الْخَيْرَاتُ؟"، أُولئِكَ الَّذِينَ دَيْنَونَتُهُمْ عَادِلَةٌ. فَمَاذَا لَنَا إذاً؟ أَنَحْنُ أَفْضَلُ؟! كَلاَّ الْبَتَّةَ؛ لأننَا قَدْ سَبَقْنَا وَشَكَوْنَا أنَّ الْيَهُودَ وَالْيُونَانِيِّينَ أَجْمَعِينَ تَحْتَ الْخَطِيَّةِ، كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ: "أَنهُ لَيْسَ بَارٌّ وَلا وَاحِدٌ. لَيْسَ مَنْ يَفْهَمُ. لَيْسَ مَنْ يَطْلُبُ اللَّهَ. الْجَمِيعُ زَاغُوا وَفَسَدُوا مَعَاً. لَيْسَ مَنْ يَعْمَلُ صَلاَحَاً لَيْسَ وَلا وَاحِدٌ. حَنْجَرَتُهُمْ قَبْرٌ مَفْتُوحٌ. قَدْ مَكَرُوا بِلِسَانِهِمْ. سُمُّ الأَفَاعِي تَحْتَ شِفَاهِهِمْ. هَؤُلاءِ الَّذِينَ أَفْوَاهُهُمْ مَمْلُوءةٌ لَعْنَةً وَمَرَارَةً. أَرْجُلُهُمْ سَرِيعَةٌ إلى سَفْكِ الدَّمِ. في طُرُقِهِمِ الانْكِسَارُ وَالشَّقَاوَةُ. وَطَرِيقُ السَّلاَمِ لَمْ يَعْرِفُوهُ. لَيْسَ خَوْفُ اللَّهِ أمَامَ عُيُونهِمْ". وَنَحْنُ نَعْلَمُ أنَّ كُلَّ مَا يَقُولُهُ النَّامُوسُ فَهُوَ يُكَلِّمُ بِهِ الَّذِينَ في النَّامُوسِ، لِكَيْ يَسْتَدَّ فَمُ كُلِّ وَاحِدٍ، وَيَصِيرَ كُلُّ الْعَالَمِ تَحْتَ حُكْمِ اللَّهِ. لأنهُ بِأَعْمَالِ النَّامُوسِ كُلُّ ذِي جَسَدٍ لا يَتَبَرَّرُ أمَامَ اللَّهِ؛ لأنَّ بِالنَّامُوسِ مَعْرِفَةَ الْخَطِيَّةِ. وَأمَّا الآنَ فَقَدْ ظَهَرَ بِرُّ اللَّهِ بِدُونِ النَّامُوسِ، مَشْهُوداً لَهُ مِنْ قِبَلِ النَّامُوسِ وَالأَنْبِيَاءِ، بِرُّ اللَّهِ الَّذِي بِالإيمَانِ بِيَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ، في جَمِيعِ الَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ؛ لأنهُ لا يُوجَدُ فَرْقٌ. إذِ الْجَمِيعُ أَخْطَأُوا وَأَعْوَزَهُمْ مَجْدُ اللَّهِ، مُتَبَرِّرِينَ مَجَّانَاً بِنِعْمَتِهِ بِالْخَلاَصِ الَّذِي بالْمَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ، الَّذِي سَبَقَ اللَّهُ وَوَضَعَهُ كَفَّارَةً بِالإيمَانِ بِدَمِهِ، لإظْهَارِ بِرِّهِ، مِنْ أَجْلِ مَغْفِرَةِ الْخَطَايَا السَّالِفَةِ. بِإمْهَالِ اللَّهِ؛ لِكَيْ يَظْهَرَ بِرُّهُ في هَذَا الزَّمَانِ الْحَاضِرِ، لِيَكُونَ بَارّاً وَيُبَرِّرَ مَنْ هُوَ مِنَ الإيمَانِ بِيَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ. فَأَيْنَ الافْتِخَارُ إذاً؟ قَدْ بَطَلَ. بِأَيِّ نَامُوسٍ؟ أَبِنَامُوسِ الأَعْمَالِ؟ كَلاَّ. بَلْ بِنَامُوسِ الإيمَانِ. إذاً نَحْسِبُ أنَّ الإنْسَانَ يَتَبَرَّرُ بِالإيمَانِ بِدُونِ أَعْمَالِ النَّامُوسِ. أَمِ اللَّهُ لِلْيَهُودِ فَقَطْ وَلَيْسَ للأُمَمِ أيْضاً؟ بَلَى لِلأُمَمِ أيْضاً، فَإذاً إنْ كَانَ اللَّهُ وَاحِداً، وَهُوَ الَّذِي سَيُبَرِّرُ الْخِتَانَ بِالإيمَانِ وَالْغُرْلَةَ بِالإيمَانِ، أَفَنُبِطِلُ النَّامُوسَ بِالإيمَانِ؟ حَاشَا! بَلْ نُثَبِّتُ النَّامُوسَ. فَمَاذَا نَقُولُ عَن إبْرَاهِيمَ إذْ وُجِدَ أَوَّلَ أَبٍ حَسَبَ الْجَسَدِ؟ لأَنهُ إنْ كَانَ إبْرَاهِيمُ قَدْ تَبَرَّرَ بِالأَعْمَالِ فَلَهُ فَخْرٌ، وَلكِنْ لَيْسَ لَدَى اللَّهِ. لأنهُ مَاذَا يَقُولُ الْكِتَابُ؟: "آمَنَ إبْرَاهِيمُ بِاللَّهِ فَحُسِبَ لَهُ بِرَّاً". نعمةُ اللَّهِ الآبِ فَلْتَحِلَّ عَلَى أرواحِنا يا آبائي وإخْوَتي. آمين.

The Catholic Epistle from 1 John

الكاثوليكون من يوحنا الأولى

1:1-2:2

١ : ١ − ٢ : ٢

*That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the word of life: For the life was manifested; and we have seen and do bear witness, and declare unto you the life eternal, which was with the Father, and hath appeared to us: That which we have seen and have heard, we declare unto you, that you also may have fellowship with us, and our fellowship may be with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things we write to you, that you may rejoice, and your joy may be full. And this is the declaration which we have heard from him, and declare unto you: That God is light, and in him there is no darkness. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he also is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all iniquity. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. Christ is our advocate. We must keep his commandments and love one another. We must not love the world nor give ear to new teachers, but abide by the spirit of God in the church. My little children, these things I write to you, that you may not sin. But if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the just: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world. 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.

الَّذِي كَانَ مِنَ الْبَدْءِ، الَّذِي سَمِعْنَاهُ، الَّذِي رَأيْنَاهُ بِعُيُوننَا، الَّذِي شَاهَدْنَاهُ، وَلَمَسَتْهُ أيْدِينَا، مِنْ جِهَةِ كَلِمَةِ الْحَيَاةِ. فَإنَّ الْحَيَاةَ أُظْهِرَتْ، وَقَدْ رَأيْنَا وَنَشْهَدُ وَنُعْلِمُكُمْ بِالْحَيَاةِ الأَبدِيَّةِ التِي كَانَتْ عِنْدَ الآبِ وَأُظْهِرَتْ لَنَا. الَّذِي رَأيْنَاهُ وَسَمِعْنَاهُ نُبَشِّرُكُمْ بِهِ، لِكَيْ يَكوُنَ لَكُمْ أيْضاً شَرِكَةٌ مَعَنَا. وَأمَّا شَرِكَتُنَا نَحْنُ فَهِيَ مَعَ الآبِ وَابْنهِ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ. وَهَذَا مَا نَكْتُبُهُ إلَيْكُمْ لِكَيْ يَكُونَ فَرَحُكُمْ كَامِلاً. وَهَذَا هُوَ الْوَعْدُ الَّذِي سَمِعْنَاهُ مِنْهُ وَنُبَشِّرُكُمْ بِهِ: إنَّ اللَّهَ نُورٌ وَلَيْسَ فِيهِ ظُلْمَةٌ الْبَتَّةَ. فَإنْ قُلْنَا: إنَّ لَنَا شَرِكَةً مَعَهُ وَنَسْلُكُ في الظُّلْمَةِ، نَكْذِبْ وَلَسْنَا نَعْمَلُ الْحَقَّ. وَلكِنْ إنْ سَلَكْنَا في النُّورِ كَمَا هُوَ سَاكِنٌ في النُّورِ، فَلَنَا شَرِكَةٌ بَعْضِنَا مَعَ بَعْضٍ، وَدَمُ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ ابْنِهِ يُطَهِّرُنَا مِنْ كُلِّ خَطِيَّةٍ. إنْ قُلْنَا: إنَّهُ لَيْسَ لَنَا خَطِيَّةٌ، نُضِلَّ أَنْفُسَنَا وَحْدَنَا وَلَيْسَ الْحَقُّ فِينَا. إنِ اعْتَرَفْنَا بِخَطَايَانَا فَهُوَ أمِينٌ وَعَادِلٌ، حَتَّى يَغْفِرَ لَنَا خَطَايَانَا وَيُطَهِّرَنَا مِنْ كُلِّ إثْمٍ. وإنْ قُلْنَا: إنَّنَا لَمْ نُخْطِئْ نَجْعَلْهُ كَاذِباً، وَكَلِمَتُهُ لَيْسَتْ فِينَا. يَا أَوْلاَدِي، أَكْتُبُ إلَيْكُمْ هَذَا لِكَيْ لا تُخْطِئُوا. وَإنْ أَخْطَأَ أَحَدٌ فَلَنَا شَفِيعٌ عِنْدَ الآبِ، يَسُوعُ الْمَسِيحُ الْبَارُّ. وَهُوَ كَفَّارَةٌ لِخَطَايَانَا. لا تُحِبُّوا العَالَمَ ولا الأشْيَاءَ التي في العَالَمِ، لأنَّ العَالَمَ يمْضِي وَشَهْوَتُهُ مَعَهُ، وأمَّا مَنْ يَعملُ مَشِيئَةَ اللهِ فإنه يَثْبُتُ إلى الأبدِ. آمين.

7:30-34

٧ : ٣٠ − ٣٤

*And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the desert of mount Sina, an angel in a flame of fire in a bush. And Moses seeing it, wondered at the sight. And as he drew near to view it, the voice of the Lord came unto him, saying: I am the God of thy fathers; the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses being terrified, durst not behold. And the Lord said to him: Loose the shoes from thy feet, for the place wherein thou standest, is holy ground. Seeing I have seen the affliction of my people which is in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come, and I will send thee into Egypt. The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed, in the holy Church of God. Amen.

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.

A psalm of David

44:13

٤٤ : ١٣

*Hear, O daughter, and see, and incline thine ear; forget also thy people, and thy father’s house. Because the king has desired thy beauty; for he is thy Lord. Alleluia.

اِسْمَعِي يَا ابْنَتِي وَانْظُرِي وَأَمِيلِي سَمْعَكِ، وَانْسَيْ شَعْبَكِ وَبَيْتَ أَبِيكِ، فَإنَّ الْمَلِكَ قَدْ اشْتَهَى حُسْنَكِ، لأنهُ هُوَ رَبُّكِ. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint Luke

الإنجيل من لوقا

1:26-38

١ : ٢٦ − ٣٨

*And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. Who having heard, was troubled at his saying, and thought with herself what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God. Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the most High; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father; and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever. And of his kingdom there shall be no end. And Mary said to the angel: How shall this be done, because I know not man? And the angel answering, said to her: The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the most High shall overshadow thee. And therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And behold thy cousin Elizabeth, she also hath conceived a son in her old age; and this is the sixth month with her that is called barren: Because no word shall be impossible with God. And Mary said: Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her. Glory be to God forever.

وَفي الشَّهْرِ السَّادِسِ أُرْسِلَ جِبْرَائِيلُ الْمَلاَكُ مِنْ قِبَلِ اللَّهِ إلى مَدِينَةٍ مِنَ الْجَلِيلِ اسْمُهَا نَاصِرَةُ، إلى عَذْرَاءَ مَخْطُوبَةٍ لِرَجُلٍ مِنْ بَيْتِ دَاوُدَ اسْمُهُ يُوسُفُ. وَاسْمُ الْعَذْرَاءِ مَرْيَمُ. فَدَخَلَ إلَيْهَا الْمَلاَكُ وَقَالَ لَهَا: "سَلامٌ لَكِ أيتُهَا الْمُمْتَلِئَةُ نِعْمَةً! الرَّبُّ مَعَكِ. مُبَارَكَةٌ أَنْتِ في النِّسَاءِ". فَلَمَّا رَأَتْهُ اضْطَرَبَتْ مِنَ الْكَلاَمِ، وَفَكَّرَتْ: "مَا عَسَى أنْ يَكُونَ هَذَا السَّلامُ؟!" فَقَالَ لَهَا الْمَلاَكُ: "لا تَخَافِي يَا مَرْيَمُ؛ لأنكِ قَدْ وَجَدْتِ نِعْمَةً عِنْدَ اللَّهِ. وَهَا أَنْتِ سَتَحْبَلِينَ وَتَلِدِينَ ابْناً وَتَدْعِينَ اسْمَهُ يَسُوعَ. وَهَذَا يَكُونُ عَظِيماً، وَابْنَ الْعَلِيِّ يُدْعَى وَيُعْطِيهِ الرَّبُّ الإلَهُ كُرْسِيَّ دَاوُدَ أَبِيهِ، وَيَمْلِكُ عَلَى بَيْتِ يَعْقُوبَ إلى الأبدِ، وَلا يَكُونُ لِمُلْكِهِ انْقِضَاءٌ". فَقَالَتْ مَرْيَمُ لِلْمَلاَكِ: "كَيْفَ يَكُونُ لِي هَذَا وَأَنا لَسْتُ أَعْرِفُ رَجُلاً؟". فَأَجَابَ الْمَلاَكُ وَقَالَ لَهَا: "الرُّوحُ الْقُدُسُ يَحِلُّ عَلَيْكِ، وَقُوَّةُ الْعَلِيِّ تُظَلِّلُكِ، فَلِذلِكَ أيْضاً الْمَوْلُودُ مِنْكِ قُدُّوسٌ وَيُدْعَى ابْنَ اللَّهِ. وَهُوَذَا ألِيصَابَاتُ نَسِيبَتُكِ هِيَ أيْضاً حُبْلَى بِابْنٍ في شَيْخُوخَتِهَا، وَهَذَا هُوَ الشَّهْرُ السَّادِسُ لِتِلْكَ الْمَدْعُوَّةِ عَاقِراً، لأنهُ لَيْسَ شَيْءٌ غَيْرَ مُمْكِنٍ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ". فَقَالَتْ مَرْيَمُ لِلْمَلاكِ: "هُوَذَا أَنا أَمَةُ الرَّبِّ. لِيَكُنْ لِي كَقَوْلِكَ". فَانْصَرَفَ عَنْهَا الْمَلاَكُ. وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.
