From the book of Proverbs

من أمثال سليمان الحكيم

2:1-15

٢ : ١ − ١٥

*My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and wilt hide my commandments with thee, That thy ear may hearken to wisdom: Incline thy heart to know prudence: For if thou shalt call for wisdom, and incline thy heart to prudence: If thou shalt seek her as money, and shalt dig for her as for a treasure: Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and shalt find the knowledge of God. Because the Lord giveth wisdom: and out of his mouth cometh prudence and knowledge. He will keep the salvation of the righteous, and protect them that walk in simplicity. Keeping the paths of justice, and guarding the ways of saints. Then shalt thou understand justice, and judgment, and equity, and every good path. If wisdom shall enter into thy heart, and knowledge please thy soul: Counsel shall keep thee, and prudence shall preserve thee, That thou mayst be delivered from the evil way, and from the man that speaketh perverse things: Who leave the right way, and walk by dark ways: Who are glad when they have done evil, and rejoice in most wicked things: Whose ways are perverse, and their steps infamous. Glory be to The Holy Trinity.

يَا ابْنِي إِنْ قَبِلْتَ كَلاَمِي وَخَبَّأْتَ وَصَايَايَ عِنْدَكَ حَتَّى تُمِيلَ أُذْنَكَ إِلَى الْحِكْمَةِ وَتُعَطِّفَ قَلْبَكَ عَلَى الْفَهْمِ إِنْ دَعَوْتَ الْمَعْرِفَةَ وَرَفَعْتَ صَوْتَكَ إِلَى الْفَهْمِ إِنْ طَلَبْتَهَا كَالْفِضَّةِ وَبَحَثْتَ عَنْهَا كَالْكُنُوزِ فَحِينَئِذٍ تَفْهَمُ مَخَافَةَ الرَّبِّ وَتَجِدُ مَعْرِفَةَ اللَّهِ لأَنَّ الرَّبَّ يُعْطِي حِكْمَةً. مِنْ فَمِهِ الْمَعْرِفَةُ وَالْفَهْمُ يَذْخَرُ مَعُونَةً لِلْمُسْتَقِيمِينَ. هُوَ مِجَنٌّ لِلسَّالِكِينَ بِالْكَمَالِ لِنَصْرِ مَسَالِكِ الْحَقِّ وَحِفْظِ طَرِيقِ أَتْقِيَائِهِ حِينَئِذٍ تَفْهَمُ الْعَدْلَ وَالْحَقَّ وَالاِسْتِقَامَةَ: كُلَّ سَبِيلٍ صَالِحٍ إِذَا دَخَلَتِ الْحِكْمَةُ قَلْبَكَ وَلَذَّتِ الْمَعْرِفَةُ لِنَفْسِكَ فَالْعَقْلُ يَحْفَظُكَ وَالْفَهْمُ يَنْصُرُكَ لإِنْقَاذِكَ مِنْ طَرِيقِ الشِّرِّيرِ وَمِنَ الإِنْسَانِ الْمُتَكَلِّمِ بِالأَكَاذِيبِ التَّارِكِينَ سُبُلَ الاِسْتِقَامَةِ لِلسُّلُوكِ فِي مَسَالِكِ الظُّلْمَةِ الْفَرِحِينَ بِفَعْلِ السُّوءِ الْمُبْتَهِجِينَ بِأَكَاذِيبِ الشَّرِّ الَّذِينَ طُرُقُهُمْ مُعَوَّجَةٌ وَهُمْ مُلْتَوُونَ فِي سُبُلِهِمْ مَجْدَاً لِلثَالُوث الأَقَدَسْ.

From the book of Isaiah

من أشعياء النبي

10:12-20

١٠ : ١٢ − ٢٠

*And it shall come to pass, that when the Lord shall have performed all his works in mount Sion, and in Jerusalem, I will visit the fruit of the proud heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of the haughtiness of his eyes. For he hath said: By the strength of my own hand I have done it, and by my own wisdom I have understood: and I have removed the bounds of the people, and have taken the spoils of the princes, and as a mighty man hath pulled down them that sat on high. And my hand hath found the strength of the people as a nest; and as eggs are gathered, that are left, so have I gathered all the earth: and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or made the least noise. Shall the axe boast itself against him that cutteth with it? or shall the saw exalt itself against him by whom it is drawn? as if a rod should lift itself up against him that lifteth it up, and a staff exalt itself, which is but wood. Therefore the sovereign Lord, the Lord of hosts, shall send leanness among his fat ones: and under his glory shall be kindled a burning, as it were the burning of a fire. And the light of Israel shall be as a fire, and the Holy One thereof as a flame: and his thorns and his briers shall be set on fire, and shall be devoured in one day. And the glory of his forest, and of his beautiful hill, shall be consumed from the soul even to the flesh, and he shall run away through fear. And they that remain of the trees of his forest shall be so few, that they shall easily be numbered, and a child shall write them down. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and they that shall escape of the house of Jacob, shall lean no more upon him that striketh them: but they shall lean upon the Lord the Holy One of Israel, in truth. Glory be to The Holy Trinity.

*Many are the scourges of the sinner: but him that hopes in the Lord mercy shall compass about. Alleluia.

كَثِيرَةٌ هِيَ ضَرَبَاتُ الخُطَاة. وَالَّذِي يَتكِّلُ عَلَى الرَّبِّ الرَّحْمَةُ تُحِيطُ بِهِ. هَلِّلُويَا.

The Gospel according to Saint Luke

الإنجيل من لوقا

12:54-59

١٢ : ٥٤ − ٥٩

*And he said also to the multitudes: When you see a cloud rising from the west, presently you say: A shower is coming: and so it happeneth: And when ye see the south wind blow, you say: There will be heat: and it cometh to pass. You hypocrites, you know how to discern the face of the heaven and of the earth: but how is it that you do not discern this time? And why even of yourselves, do you not judge that which is just? And when thou goest with thy adversary to the prince, whilst thou art in the way, endeavour to be delivered from him: lest perhaps he draw thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the exacter, and the exacter cast thee into prison. I say to thee, thou shalt not go out thence, until thou pay the very last mite. Glory be to God forever.

ثُمَّ قَالَ أَيْضاً لِلْجُمُوعِ: "إِذَا رَأَيْتُمُ السَّحَابَ تَطْلُعُ مِنَ الْمَغَارِبِ فَلِلْوَقْتِ تَقُولُونَ: إِنَّهُ يَأْتِي مَطَرٌ. فَيَكُونُ هَكَذَا وَإِذَا رَأَيْتُمْ رِيحَ الْجَنُوبِ تَهُبُّ تَقُولُونَ: إِنَّهُ سَيَكُونُ حَرٌّ. فَيَكُونُ يَا مُرَاؤُونَ تَعْرِفُونَ أَنْ تُمَيِّزُوا وَجْهَ الأَرْضِ وَالسَّمَاءِ وَأَمَّا هَذَا الزَّمَانُ فَكَيْفَ لاَ تُمَيِّزُونَهُ؟ وَلِمَاذَا لاَ تَحْكُمُونَ بِالْحَقِّ مِنْ قِبَلِ نُفُوسِكُمْ؟ حِينَمَا تَذْهَبُ مَعَ خَصْمِكَ إِلَى الْحَاكِمِ ابْذُلِ الْجَهْدَ وَأَنْتَ فِي الطَّرِيقِ لِتَتَخَلَّصَ مِنْهُ لِئَلاَّ يَجُرَّكَ إِلَى الْقَاضِي وَيُسَلِّمَكَ الْقَاضِي إِلَى الْحَاكِمِ فَيُلْقِيَكَ الْحَاكِمُ فِي السِّجْنِ أَقُولُ لَكَ: لاَ تَخْرُجُ مِنْ هُنَاكَ حَتَّى تُوفِيَ الْفَلْسَ الأَخِيرَ". وَالْمَجْدُ لِلَّهِ دَائِماً.

The Pauline Epistle from Romans

البولس من رومية

4:1-8

٤ : ١ − ٨

*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. Now to him that worketh, the reward is not reckoned according to grace, but according to debt. But to him that worketh not, yet believeth in him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is reputed to justice, according to the purpose of the grace of God. As David also termeth the blessedness of a man, to whom God reputeth justice without works: Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord hath not imputed sin. The grace of God the Father be with you all. Amen.

فَمَاذَا نَقُولُ إِنَّ أَبَانَا إِبْرَاهِيمَ قَدْ وَجَدَ حَسَبَ الْجَسَدِ؟ لأَنَّهُ إِنْ كَانَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ قَدْ تَبَرَّرَ بِالأَعْمَالِ فَلَهُ فَخْرٌ وَلَكِنْ لَيْسَ لَدَى اللهِ لأَنَّهُ مَاذَا يَقُولُ الْكِتَابُ؟ "فَآمَنَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ بِاللَّهِ فَحُسِبَ لَهُ بِرّاً" أَمَّا الَّذِي يَعْمَلُ فَلاَ تُحْسَبُ لَهُ الأُجْرَةُ عَلَى سَبِيلِ نِعْمَةٍ بَلْ عَلَى سَبِيلِ دَيْنٍ وَأَمَّا الَّذِي لاَ يَعْمَلُ وَلَكِنْ يُؤْمِنُ بِالَّذِي يُبَرِّرُ الْفَاجِرَ فَإِيمَانُهُ يُحْسَبُ لَهُ بِرّاً كَمَا يَقُولُ دَاوُدُ أَيْضاً فِي تَطْوِيبِ الإِنْسَانِ الَّذِي يَحْسِبُ لَهُ اللهُ بِرّاً بِدُونِ أَعْمَالٍ: "طُوبَى للَّذِينَ غُفِرَتْ آثَامُهُمْ وَسُتِرَتْ خَطَايَاهُمْ طُوبَى لِلرَّجُلِ الَّذِي لاَ يَحْسِبُ لَهُ الرَّبُّ خَطِيَّةً". نعمةُ اللَّهِ الآبِ فَلْتَحِلَّ عَلَى أرواحِنا يا آبائي وإخْوَتي. آمين.

The Catholic Epistle from 1 John

الكاثوليكون من يوحنا الأولى

2:1-11

٢ : ١ − ١١

*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. And by this we know that we have known him, if we keep his commandments. He who saith that he knoweth him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But he that keepeth his word, in him in very deed the charity of God is perfected; and by this we know that we are in him. He that saith he abideth in him, ought himself also to walk, even as he walked. Dearly beloved, I write not a new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you have heard. Again a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true both in him and in you; because the darkness is passed, and the true light now shineth. He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loveth his brother, abideth in the light, and there is no scandal in him. But he that hateth his brother, is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth; because the darkness hath blinded his eyes. 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.

يَا أَوْلاَدِي، أَكْتُبُ إِلَيْكُمْ هَذَا لِكَيْ لاَ تُخْطِئُوا. وَإِنْ أَخْطَأَ أَحَدٌ فَلَنَا شَفِيعٌ عِنْدَ الآبِ، يَسُوعُ الْمَسِيحُ الْبَارُّ وَهُوَ كَفَّارَةٌ لِخَطَايَانَا. لَيْسَ لِخَطَايَانَا فَقَطْ، بَلْ لِخَطَايَا كُلِّ الْعَالَمِ أَيْضاً وَبِهَذَا نَعْرِفُ أَنَّنَا قَدْ عَرَفْنَاهُ: إِنْ حَفِظْنَا وَصَايَاهُ مَنْ قَالَ قَدْ عَرَفْتُهُ وَهُوَ لاَ يَحْفَظُ وَصَايَاهُ، فَهُوَ كَاذِبٌ وَلَيْسَ الْحَقُّ فِيهِ وَأَمَّا مَنْ حَفِظَ كَلِمَتَهُ، فَحَقّاً فِي هَذَا قَدْ تَكَمَّلَتْ مَحَبَّةُ اللهِ. بِهَذَا نَعْرِفُ أَنَّنَا فِيهِ: مَنْ قَالَ إِنَّهُ ثَابِتٌ فِيهِ، يَنْبَغِي أَنَّهُ كَمَا سَلَكَ ذَاكَ هَكَذَا يَسْلُكُ هُوَ أَيْضاً أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَةُ، لَسْتُ أَكْتُبُ إِلَيْكُمْ وَصِيَّةً جَدِيدَةً، بَلْ وَصِيَّةً قَدِيمَةً كَانَتْ عِنْدَكُمْ مِنَ الْبَدْءِ. الْوَصِيَّةُ الْقَدِيمَةُ هِيَ الْكَلِمَةُ الَّتِي سَمِعْتُمُوهَا مِنَ الْبَدْءِ أَيْضاً وَصِيَّةً جَدِيدَةً أَكْتُبُ إِلَيْكُمْ، مَا هُوَ حَقٌّ فِيهِ وَفِيكُمْ، أَنَّ الظُّلْمَةَ قَدْ مَضَتْ، وَالنُّورَ الْحَقِيقِيَّ الآنَ يُضِيءُ مَنْ قَالَ إِنَّهُ فِي النُّورِ وَهُوَ يُبْغِضُ أَخَاهُ، فَهُوَ إِلَى الآنَ فِي الظُّلْمَةِ مَنْ يُحِبُّ أَخَاهُ يَثْبُتُ فِي النُّورِ وَلَيْسَ فِيهِ عَثْرَةٌ وَأَمَّا مَنْ يُبْغِضُ أَخَاهُ فَهُوَ فِي الظُّلْمَةِ، وَفِي الظُّلْمَةِ يَسْلُكُ، وَلاَ يَعْلَمُ أَيْنَ يَمْضِي، لأَنَّ الظُّلْمَةَ أَعْمَتْ عَيْنَيْهِ. لا تُحِبُّوا العَالَمَ ولا الأشْيَاءَ التي في العَالَمِ، لأنَّ العَالَمَ يمْضِي وَشَهْوَتُهُ مَعَهُ، وأمَّا مَنْ يَعملُ مَشِيئَةَ اللهِ فإنه يَثْبُتُ إلى الأبدِ. آمين.

٢٧ : ٩ − ١٢

*And when much time was spent, and when sailing now was dangerous, because the fast was now past, Paul comforted them, Saying to them: Ye men, I see that the voyage beginneth to be with injury and much damage, not only of the lading and ship, but also of our lives. But the centurion believed the pilot and the master of the ship, more than those things which were said by Paul. And whereas it was not a commodious haven to winter in, the greatest part gave counsel to sail thence, if by any means they might reach Phenice to winter there, which is a haven of Crete, looking towards the southwest and northwest. The word of the Lord shall grow, multiply, be mighty, and be confirmed, in the holy Church of God. Amen.

٨ : ٣١ − ٣٩

*Then Jesus said to those Jews, who believed him: If you continue in my word, you shall be my disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. They answered him: We are the seed of Abraham, and we have never been slaves to any man: how sayest thou: you shall be free? Jesus answered them: Amen, amen I say unto you: that whosoever committeth sin, is the servant of sin. Now the servant abideth not in the house for ever; but the son abideth for ever. If therefore the son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed. I know that you are the children of Abraham: but you seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and you do the things that you have seen with your father. They answered, and said to him: Abraham is our father. Jesus saith to them: If you be the children of Abraham, do the works of Abraham. Glory be to God forever.
