Chapter 8

1 ܫܐܘܠ ܕܝܢ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܫܘܬܦ ܗܘܐ ܒܩܛܠܗ ܘܗܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܗܘ ܝܘܡܐ ܪܕܘܦܝܐ ܪܒܐ ܠܥܕܬܐ ܕܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܐܬܒܕܪܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܩܘܪܝܐ ܕܝܗܘܕ ܘܐܦ ܒܝܬ ܫܡܪܝܐ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ
And Saul approved and participated in his murder. And that day started a widespread persecution against the church in Jerusalem, and all those, except the Apostles, scattered in among the villages of Judaea and also in among the Samaritans
2 ܘܩܦܤܘ ܩܒܪܘܗܝ ܠܐܤܛܦܢܘܤ ܓܒܪܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܘܐܬܐܒܠܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܪܘܪܒܐܝܬ
. And devout men wrapped up and buried Stephen And they mourned immensely over him
3 ܫܐܘܠ ܕܝܢ ܪܕܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܥܕܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܟܕ ܥܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܬܐ ܘܡܓܪܓܪ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܘܠܢܫܐ ܘܡܫܠܡܝܢ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ
. And Saul persecuted the church of God, entering houses, and apprehending men and women and sending them to prison
4 ܘܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܬܒܕܪܘ ܡܬܟܪܟܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܟܪܙܝܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
. And those who escaped, went from place to place and preached the word of God
5 ܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܕܝܢ ܢܚܬ ܠܗ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܫܡܪܝܐ ܘܡܟܪܙ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܠ ܡܫܝܚܐ
. And Philip went down to a Samaritan town, and preached about the Messiah
6 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܠܬܗ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܬܡܢ ܨܝܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܘܡܬܛܦܝܤܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܟܠ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ
And when the people there heard his message, they all welcomed him and accepted what he said, for they had seen the miracles which he performed
7 ܤܓܝܐܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܚܝܕܢ ܗܘܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܢܦܩܢ ܗܘܝ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܡܫܪܝܐ ܘܡܚܓܪܐ ܐܬܐܤܝܘ
. For many possessed by unclean spirits, cried out with loud voice as they came out of them, and others, who were crippled and lame were healed
8 ܘܚܕܘܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܗܝ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
. And there was immense joy in that city
9 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܤܝܡܘܢ ܕܥܡܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܒܗ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܒܚܪܫܘܗܝ ܡܛܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܥܡܐ ܕܫܡܪܝܐ ܟܕ ܡܘܪܒ ܗܘܐ ܢܦܫܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܪܒܐ
And there was a certain man there, whose name was Simon, who had lived in that town a long time, and who deceived the Samaritan people with his sorcery, exalting himself, and saying, I, am remarkable 
10 ܘܨܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܪܘܪܒܐ ܘܕܩܕܩܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܗܢܘ ܚܝܠܗ ܪܒܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
. And they were all won over to him, eminent and ordinary alike, and they said, This is the divine power of God
11 ܘܡܬܛܦܝܤܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܙܒܢܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܒܚܪܫܘܗܝ ܐܬܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܘܢ
. And they acknowledged him because he had astonished them for a long time with his sorcery
12 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܕܡܤܒܪ ܗܘܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܥܡܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܘܢܫܐ
But as they came to believe Philip when he preached the Realm of God, in the name of our Lord Jesus the Messiah, they were baptized, both men and women
13 ܘܐܦ ܗܘ ܤܝܡܘܢ ܗܝܡܢ ܗܘܐ ܘܥܡܕ ܘܢܩܝܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܚܝܠܐ ܪܘܪܒܐ ܕܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܬܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܬܕܡܪ
And even Simon himself believed, and was baptized, and accompanied Philip And when he saw the signs and great miracles which were performed by his hand, he was amazed and astonished
14 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܕܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܕܩܒܠܘ ܥܡܐ ܕܫܡܪܝܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܫܕܪܘ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܠܝܘܚܢܢ
And when the Apostles in Jerusalem heard the people of the Samaritans had received the word of God, they sent out Simon Kephas and John to them
15 ܘܢܚܬܘ ܘܨܠܝܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܩܒܠܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
. And they went down there, and prayed over them, so they might receive the Holy Spirit
16 ܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܥܠ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܥܕܟܝܠ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܕܝܢ ܥܡܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ
. For he was not yet on any one of them, as they had been baptized only, in the name of our Lord Jesus
17 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܤܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܐ ܘܡܩܒܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
. Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit
18 ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܤܝܡܘܢ ܕܒܤܝܡ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܫܠܝܚܐ ܡܬܝܗܒܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܩܪܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܤܦܐ
. And when Simon saw that by the laying of a hand of the Apostles, the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money,
19 ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܗܒܘ ܐܦ ܠܝ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܤܝܡ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܝܕܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܡܩܒܠ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
. saying: Give me this ability as well, so on whom he I lay a hand may receive the Holy Spirit
20 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܟܤܦܟ ܥܡܟ ܢܐܙܠ ܠܐܒܕܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܤܒܪܬ ܕܡܘܗܒܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܩܢܝܢ ܥܠܡܐ ܡܬܩܢܝܐ
Simon Kephas said to him: May you with your money go to be forever lost, because you thought that the gift of God may be bought with money
21 ܠܝܬ ܠܟ ܡܢܬܐ ܐܦܠܐ ܦܤܐ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܒܟ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܬܪܝܨ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ
. You have no part nor right in this faith, for your heart is not right before God
22 ܒܪܡ ܬܘܒ ܡܢ ܒܝܫܘܬܟ ܗܕܐ ܘܒܥܝ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܫܬܒܩ ܠܟ ܢܟܠܐ ܕܠܒܟ
Nonetheless, repent of your evilness, and pray to God, so that the falseness of your heart may be forgiven
23 ܒܟܒܕܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܪܝܪܬܐ ܘܒܩܛܪܐ ܕܥܘܠܐ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܝܬܝܟ
For I see that you are bitter with anger and in the clutches of iniquity
24 ܥܢܐ ܤܝܡܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܒܥܘ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܚܠܦܝ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܐܬܐ ܥܠܝ ܡܕܡ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܐܡܪܬܘܢ
. Simon answered and said: Pray to God for me, so none of what you spoke of may come to me
25 ܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܟܕ ܤܗܕܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܐܠܦܘ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܗܦܟܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܒܩܘܪܝܐ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ ܕܫܡܪܝܐ ܤܒܪܘ
And after Simon and John had testified and taught them the word of God, they returned to Jerusalem And they preached in many villages of the Samaritans
26 ܘܡܠܠ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܥܡ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܡ ܙܠ ܠܬܝܡܢܐ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܡܕܒܪܝܬܐ ܕܢܚܬܐ ܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܠܓܙܐ
And the angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, and said to him: Arise, go to the south, along the desert route that leads down from Jerusalem to Gaza
27 ܘܩܡ ܐܙܠ ܘܐܪܥܗ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܚܕ ܕܐܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܟܘܫ ܫܠܝܛܐ ܕܩܢܕܩ ܡܠܟܬܐ ܕܟܘܫܝܐ ܘܗܘ ܫܠܝܛ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܟܠܗ ܓܙܗ ܘܐܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܤܓܘܕ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ
And he arose and went And he was met by an abstainer*, who had come from Cush, an official of Candace, queen of the Cushites, who had oversight of all her treasure, and had come to worship at Jerusalem
28 ܘܟܕ ܗܦܟ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܡܪܟܒܬܐ ܘܩܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܐܫܥܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ
And as he returned, he was sat in his chariot, and was reading Isaiah the prophet
29 ܘܐܡܪܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܐܬܩܪܒ ܘܩܦ ܠܡܪܟܒܬܐ
And the Holy Spirit said to Philip: Go near, and stay close to the chariot
30 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܩܪܒ ܫܡܥ ܕܩܪܐ ܒܐܫܥܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܕܐܢ ܡܤܬܟܠ ܐܢܬ ܡܢܐ ܩܪܐ ܐܢܬ
? And when he went near, he heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and he said to him: Do you understand what you read
31 ܘܗܘ ܐܡܪ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܤܬܟܠ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܢܪܬܝܢܝ ܘܒܥܐ ܡܢܗ ܡܢ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܕܢܤܩ ܘܢܬܒ ܥܡܗ
And he said: How can I understand, unless some one teaches me ? And he asked Philip if he would come up and sit with him
32 ܦܤܘܩܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܟܬܒܐ ܕܩܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܗܢܐ ܐܝܟ ܐܡܪܐ ܠܢܟܤܬܐ ܐܬܕܒܪ ܘܐܝܟ ܢܩܝܐ ܩܕܡ ܓܙܘܙܐ ܫܬܝܩ ܗܘܐ ܘܗܟܢܐ ܠܐ ܦܬܚ ܦܘܡܗ
And the portion of scripture which he was reading, was this: He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a ewe is silent before the shearer, so too, he did not open his mouth
33 ܒܡܘܟܟܗ ܡܢ ܚܒܘܫܝܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܝܢܐ ܐܬܕܒܪ ܘܕܪܗ ܡܢܘ ܢܫܬܥܐ ܕܡܫܬܩܠܝܢ ܚܝܘܗܝ ܡܢ ܐܪܥܐ
! He was led from prison in humiliation and has no one to defend him, and who will talk of his descendants, since his life on earth has been taken away
34 ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܟ ܥܠ ܡܢܘ ܐܡܪܗ ܗܕܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܐܘ ܥܠ ܐܢܫ ܐܚܪܝܢ
? And the abstainer said to Philip: I ask you, of whom does the prophet speak this, of himself, or of some other person
35 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܦܬܚ ܦܘܡܗ ܘܫܪܝ ܡܢܗ ܡܢ ܗܢܐ ܟܬܒܐ ܡܤܒܪ ܠܗ ܥܠ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ
. Then Philip opened his mouth and began to preach to him from that scripture, about our Lord Jesus
36 ܘܟܕ ܗܢܘܢ ܐܙܠܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܡܛܝܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܕܘܟܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܡܝܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܗܐ ܡܝܐ ܡܢܐ ܗܝ ܟܠܝܬܐ ܕܐܥܡܕ
? And as they went on their way, they came to a certain place where there was water And the abstainer said: Behold, water ! What prevents me from being baptized
37 ܘܐܡܪ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܐܢ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܐܢܬ ܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܠܒܐ ܫܠܝܛ ܘܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ
And Philip said: If you believe with all your heart, it may be so And he answered, and said: I believe that Jesus the Messiah is the Son of God
38 ܘܦܩܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܬܩܘܡ ܡܪܟܒܬܐ ܘܢܚܬܘ ܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܠܡܝܐ ܘܐܥܡܕܗ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܠܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܗܘ
And he ordered the chariot to stop, and they both went down into the water, and Philip baptized the abstainer 
39 ܘܟܕ ܤܠܩܘ ܡܢ ܡܝܐ ܪܘܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܚܛܦܬ ܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܘܬܘܒ ܠܐ ܚܙܝܗܝ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܗܘ ܐܠܐ ܐܙܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܐܘܪܚܗ ܟܕ ܚܕܐ
And when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord carried Philip away, and the abstainer never saw him again, but went on his way rejoicing
40 ܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܕܝܢ ܐܫܬܟܚ ܒܐܙܘܛܘܤ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܡܬܟܪܟ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܤܒܪ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܩܤܪܝܐ
And Philip was found at Azotus, and from there he traveled around and preached in all the towns as far as Caesarea

Chapter 9

1 ܫܐܘܠ ܕܝܢ ܥܕܟܝܠ ܡܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܚܡܐ ܘܚܡܬܐ ܕܩܛܠܐ ܥܠ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܡܪܢ
. And Saul was still full of threats and mortal hatred against the disciples of our Lord
2 ܘܫܐܠ ܠܗ ܐܓܪܬܐ ܡܢ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܢܬܠ ܠܗ ܠܕܪܡܤܘܩ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܢܫܟܚ ܕܪܕܝܢ ܒܗܕܐ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܘ ܢܫܐ ܢܐܤܘܪ ܢܝܬܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
And he asked the high priest to give him letters to the synagogues at Damascus, so if he should find anyone following this Way, man or woman, he might arrest them and bring them to Jerusalem
3 ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠ ܗܘܐ ܘܫܪܝ ܡܡܛܐ ܠܕܪܡܤܘܩ ܡܢ ܬܚܝܬ ܫܠܝܐ ܐܙܠܓ ܗܘܐ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ
. And as he was going, and started to near Damascus, there suddenly was shone upon him a light from heaven
4 ܘܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܘܫܡܥ ܩܠܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܐܘܠ ܫܐܘܠ ܡܢܐ ܪܕܦ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ ܩܫܐ ܗܘ ܠܟ ܠܡܒܥܛܘ ܠܥܘܩܤܐ
And he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him: Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me ? It will be hard for you to kick against the prods
5 ܥܢܐ ܗܘ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢ ܐܢܬ ܡܪܝ ܘܡܪܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܢܬ ܪܕܦ ܐܢܬ
. He answered, and said: Who are you, my Lord ? And our Lord said: I am Jesus the Nazarene, whom you persecute
6 ܐܠܐ ܩܘܡ ܥܘܠ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܬܡܢ ܢܬܡܠܠ ܥܡܟ ܥܠ ܡܐ ܕܘܠܐ ܠܟ ܠܡܥܒܕ
. But get up and go into the city, and there it will be told to you what you have to do
7 ܘܓܒܪܐ ܕܐܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܕ ܬܡܝܗܝܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܩܠܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܢܫ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ
And the men who traveled with him during the journey stood speechless, for they heard only the voice, and no one was seen by them
8 ܘܩܡ ܫܐܘܠ ܡܢ ܐܪܥܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܡܕܡ ܟܕ ܥܝܢܘܗܝ ܦܬܝܚܢ ܗܘܝ ܘܟܕ ܐܚܝܕܝܢ ܒܐܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܥܠܘܗܝ ܠܕܪܡܤܘܩ
And Saul got up from the ground, and he could not see anything, even with his eyes opened And they took him by the hand, and led him into Damascus
9 ܘܠܐ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܐܟܠ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܬܝ
And he had no sight for three days, and he neither ate nor drank
10 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܗ ܒܕܪܡܤܘܩ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܘܡܪܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܪܝ
And there was in Damascus a certain disciple named Ananias And the Lord said in a vision to him: Ananias ! And he said: Behold, I am here, my Lord 
11 ܘܡܪܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܡ ܙܠ ܠܫܘܩܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܬܪܝܨܐ ܘܒܥܝ ܒܒܝܬܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܐ ܠܫܐܘܠ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܡܢ ܛܪܤܘܤ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܟܕ ܗܘ ܡܨܠܐ
And our Lord said to him: Get up, go to the street called Straight, and in the house of Judas, ask for a Saul who is from the city of Tarsus: for, behold, while he prayed,
12 ܚܙܐ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܕܥܠ ܘܤܡ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܝܕܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܬܦܬܚܢ ܥܝܢܘܗܝ
he saw in a vision a man named Ananias, who came and laid his hand upon him, so his sight might be restored 
13 ܘܐܡܪ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܡܪܝ ܫܡܥܬ ܡܢ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܥܠ ܓܒܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܟܡܐ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܐܤܒܠ ܠܩܕܝܫܝܟ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ
And Ananias said: My Lord, I have heard from many about this man, and how much harm he has brought to your saints in Jerusalem
14 ܘܗܐ ܐܦ ܗܪܟܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܡܢ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܢܐܤܘܪ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܩܪܝܢ ܫܡܟ
And, Behold, here as well has he warrants from the high priests to arrest all those that call on your name 
15 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܝܐ ܩܘܡ ܙܠ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܐܢܐ ܗܘ ܠܝ ܓܒܝܐ ܕܢܫܩܘܠ ܫܡܝ ܒܥܡܡܐ ܘܒܡܠܟܐ ܘܒܝܬ ܒܢܝ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ
The Lord said to him: Get up and go, for he is a vessel chosen by me, to carry my name to the pagans, and to kings, and among the sons of Israel
16 ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܚܘܝܘܗܝ ܟܡܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܠܡܚܫ ܡܛܠ ܫܡܝ
For I will show him how much sorrow he is to have on account of my name
17 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܐܙܠ ܠܒܝܬܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܤܡ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܝܕܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܐܘܠ ܐܚܝ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܫܕܪܢܝ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܟ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܐܢܬ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܬܦܬܚܢ ܥܝܢܝܟ ܘܬܬܡܠܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
Then Ananias went to him at the house, and he laid his hand upon him, and said to him: Saul, my brother, our Lord Jesus, he who appeared to you on the way as you came, has sent me, so your sight might be restored, and you may be filled with the Holy Spirit
18 ܘܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܢܦܠ ܡܢ ܥܝܢܘܗܝ ܡܕܡ ܕܕܡܐ ܠܩܠܦܐ ܘܐܬܦܬܚ ܥܝܢܘܗܝ ܘܩܡ ܥܡܕ
And at that moment there fell from his eyes something like a scales, and his sight was restored And he got up and was baptized
19 ܘܩܒܠ ܤܝܒܪܬܐ ܘܐܬܚܝܠ ܘܗܘܐ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܒܕܪܡܤܘܩ
And he took food and was strengthened And for days he was there with the disciples of Damascus
20 ܘܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܡܟܪܙ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܗܘܝܘ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And from then on, in the synagogues of the Jews he proclaimed that He, Jesus, is the Son of God
21 ܘܬܡܝܗܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܢܐ ܗܘ ܕܪܕܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܩܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܫܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܐܦ ܠܗܪܟܐ ܥܠܝܗ ܥܠ ܗܕܐ ܡܫܕܪ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܐܤܘܪ ܢܘܒܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ
And all those that heard him were astonished, and said: Is this not he who persecuted all those that call on this name in Jerusalem ? And behold, for this very purpose as well, was he sent here, so he might arrest and take those off to the high priests
22 ܫܐܘܠ ܕܝܢ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܬܚܝܠ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܙܝܥ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܕܪܡܤܘܩ ܟܕ ܡܚܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܗܢܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ
But Saul was strengthened more, and he confounded those Jews who lived in Damascus, when he proved that this is the Messiah
23 ܘܟܕ ܤܓܝܘ ܠܗ ܬܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܥܒܕܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܢܟܠܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܢܩܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ
And when he had been there many days, the Jews plotted against him to kill him
24 ܐܬܒܕܩ ܠܗ ܕܝܢ ܠܫܐܘܠ ܐܦܪܤܢܐ ܕܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܠܗ ܘܢܛܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܝܡܡܐ ܘܠܠܝܐ ܕܢܩܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ
And the plot they wanted to carry out on him was made known to Saul, how they watched the gates of the city, day and night, in hope to kill him 
25 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܤܡܘܗܝ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܒܐܤܦܪܝܕܐ ܘܫܒܘܗܝ ܡܢ ܫܘܪܐ ܒܠܠܝܐ
Then the disciples placed him in a basket, and from the wall let him down at night
26 ܘܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܬܢܩܦܘ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܚܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗ ܘܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܗܘ
And he went to Jerusalem, and wanted to join with the disciples, but they were all afraid of him, and did not believe that he was a disciple
27 ܒܪܢܒܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܚܕܗ ܘܐܝܬܝܗ ܠܘܬ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܐܫܬܥܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܚܙܐ ܠܡܪܝܐ ܘܕܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܠܠ ܥܡܗ ܘܐܝܟܢܐ ܒܕܪܡܤܘܩ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܡܠܠ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ
But BarNabas took him, and brought him to the Apostles, and told them how the Lord appeared to him on the journey, and how he spoke with him, and how he had preached openly in Damascus, in the name of Jesus
28 ܘܥܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܢܦܩ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ
And he went in and out with them, at Jerusalem 
29 ܘܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܘܕܪܫ ܗܘܐ ܥܡ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܕܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܝܘܢܐܝܬ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܨܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܩܛܠܗ
And he spoke openly in the name of Jesus and argued with those Jews who understood Greek But they wanted to kill him,
30 ܘܟܕ ܝܕܥܘ ܐܚܐ ܐܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܠܩܤܪܝܐ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܫܕܪܘܗܝ ܠܛܪܤܘܤ
and when the brothers knew, they took him by night to Caesarea, and from there they sent him to Tarsus
31 ܒܪܡ ܕܝܢ ܥܕܬܐ ܕܒܟܠܗ ܝܗܘܕ ܘܒܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܒܫܡܪܝܢ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܫܠܡܐ ܟܕ ܡܬܒܢܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܘܪܕܝܐ ܒܕܚܠܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܒܘܝܐܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܤܓܝܐ ܗܘܬ
Then the church throughout Judaea, and in Galilee, and in Samaria, had peace and was building, and it walked in the fear of God, and filled in the consolation of the Holy Spirit
32 ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܡܬܟܪܟ ܗܘܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܢܚܬ ܐܦ ܠܘܬ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܠܘܕ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
And it happened, that as Simon traveled about the cities, he also came to the saints who lived down in the city of Lydda
33 ܘܐܫܟܚ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܐܢܝܤ ܕܪܡܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܥܪܤܐ ܘܡܫܪܝ ܫܢܝܢ ܬܡܢܐ
And he found a certain man whose name was Aeneas, who had been paralytic and bedridden for eight years
34 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܢܝܐ ܡܐܤܐ ܠܟ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܩܘܡ ܘܫܘܐ ܥܪܤܟ ܘܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܩܡ
And Simon said to him: Aeneas, Jesus the Messiah heals you, get up, and make your bed And that moment he got up
35 ܘܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܠܘܕ ܘܒܤܪܘܢܐ ܘܐܬܦܢܝܘ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ
And all those that lived in Lydda and Saron, saw him, and they turned to God
36 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܒܝܘܦܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܛܒܝܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܥܬܝܪܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܥܒܕܐ ܛܒܐ ܘܒܙܕܩܬܐ ܕܥܒܕܐ ܗܘܬ
And there was in the city of Joppa, a certain woman disciple named Tabitha,  who was bountiful in good deeds, and in donations which she gave
37 ܐܬܟܪܗܬ ܕܝܢ ܒܗܘܢ ܒܗܢܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܘܡܝܬܬ ܘܐܤܚܝܘܗ ܘܤܡܘܗ ܒܥܠܝܬܐ
And she got ill in those days, and died, and they washed her, and laid her out in a room upstairs
38 ܘܫܡܥܘ ܗܘܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܠܘܕ ܗܘ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܐܝܬܝܗ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܝܘܦܐ ܘܫܕܪܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܓܒܪܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܕܢܒܥܘܢ ܡܢܗ ܕܠܐ ܬܡܐܢ ܠܗ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܨܐܕܝܗܘܢ
And the disciples heard that Simon was in the city of Lydda, near Joppa, and they sent two men to request him that he to come to them without delay
39 ܘܩܡ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܙܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܐܤܩܘܗܝ ܠܥܠܝܬܐ ܘܟܢܫ ܩܡ ܠܗܝܢ ܚܕܪܘܗܝ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܐܪܡܠܬܐ ܟܕ ܒܟܝܢ ܘܡܚܘܝܢ ܠܗ ܟܘܬܝܢܝܬܐ ܘܡܪܛܘܛܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܝܗܒܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܗܝܢ ܛܒܝܬܐ ܟܕ ܚܝܐ
And Simon got up and went with them And when he arrived, they led him to the room, and there gathered around her were all the widows, weeping, and showing him the tunics and cloaks Tabitha had given them when alive
40 ܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܦܩ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܠܒܪ ܘܩܥܕ ܥܠ ܒܘܪܟܘܗܝ ܘܨܠܝ ܘܐܬܦܢܝ ܠܘܬ ܫܠܕܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܛܒܝܬܐ ܩܘܡܝ ܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܦܬܚܬ ܥܝܢܝܗ ܘܟܕ ܚܙܬܗ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܝܬܒܬ
And Simon sent all the people out, and fell on his knees and prayed, and he turned to the body and said: Tabitha, get up And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Simon, she sat up
41 ܘܐܘܫܛ ܠܗ ܐܝܕܗ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ ܘܩܪܐ ܠܩܕܝܫܐ ܘܠܐܪܡܠܬܐ ܘܝܗܒܗ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܚܝܐ
And he gave her his hand and helped her up, and he called the saints and the widows, and presented her alive to them
42 ܘܐܬܝܕܥܬ ܗܕܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܡܪܢ
And this became known throughout the city, and many believed in our Lord
43 ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܗ ܒܝܘܦܐ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܠܐ ܙܥܘܪܝܢ ܟܕ ܫܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܝܬ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܘܪܤܝܐ
. And he remained in Joppa for many days, and he stayed in the house of Simon the tanner

Chapter 10

1 ܒܩܤܪܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܘܤ ܡܢ ܤܦܝܪܐ ܗܝ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܐܝܛܠܝܩܐ
And there was a certain man in Caesarea, whose name was Cornelius, a centurion of the regiment called the Italian
2 ܘܙܕܝܩ ܗܘܐ ܘܕܚܠ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܘܒܝܬܗ ܟܠܗ ܘܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ ܙܕܩܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ ܒܥܡܐ ܘܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ
And he was just and devout, him and all his household, and he gave many alms among people, and prayed to God all the time
3 ܗܢܐ ܚܙܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܓܠܝܐܝܬ ܠܐܦܝ ܬܫܥ ܫܥܝܢ ܒܐܝܡܡܐ ܕܥܠ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܐ
!This man distinctly saw in a vision, at about three in the afternoon, an angel of God, who came in to him and said to him: Cornelius
4 ܘܗܘ ܚܪ ܒܗ ܘܕܚܠ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢܐ ܡܪܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܨܠܘܬܟ ܘܙܕܩܬܟ ܤܠܩ ܠܕܘܟܪܢܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ
And he looked at him, and was afraid, and he said: What is it, my Lord ? And the angel said to him: Your prayers and alms have risen as an offering before God
5 ܘܗܫܐ ܫܕܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܠܝܘܦܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܝܬܐ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܟܐܦܐ
And now, send men to the city of Joppa, and bring here Simon who is called Kephas
6 ܗܐ ܫܪܐ ܒܒܝܬܗ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܘܪܤܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܝܡܐ
.Behold, he is staying in the house of Simon the tanner, which is by the seaside
7 ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܡܠܠ ܥܡܗ ܩܪܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܡܢ ܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ ܘܦܠܚܐ ܚܕ ܕܕܚܠ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܡܬܕܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ
And when the angel who spoke with him had left, he called two of his household, and a soldier who was devout and dutiful to him
8 ܘܐܫܬܥܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܠܡܕܡ ܕܚܙܐ ܘܫܕܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܝܘܦܐ
And he told them everything he had seen, and sent them off to Joppa
9 ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܟܕ ܗܢܘܢ ܪܕܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܩܪܝܒܝܢ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܤܠܩ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܠܐܓܪܐ ܕܢܨܠܐ ܒܫܬ ܫܥܝܢ
And the next day, as they journeyed on the way and neared the city, Simon went up on the housetop to pray at noontime
10 ܘܟܦܢ ܘܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܠܥܤ ܘܟܕ ܗܢܘܢ ܡܬܩܢܝܢ ܠܗ ܢܦܠ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܬܡܗܐ
And he became hungry, and wanted to eat. And while they were making something for him, he fell into a trance
11 ܘܚܙܐ ܫܡܝܐ ܟܕ ܦܬܝܚܝܢ ܘܡܐܢܐ ܚܕ ܟܕ ܐܤܝܪ ܒܐܪܒܥ ܩܪܢܢ ܘܕܡܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܬܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܘܫܐܒ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ
And he saw the heavens opened, and something fastened at the four corners, resembling a large cloth, and it was let from heaven down to earth 
12 ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܚܝܘܬܐ ܕܐܪܒܥܬ ܪܓܠܐ ܘܪܚܫܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܘܦܪܚܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
And there were in it all sorts of four-legged animals, and crawling things of the earth, and birds of the sky 
13 ܘܩܠܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܗ ܕܐܡܪ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܩܘܡ ܟܘܤ ܘܐܟܘܠ
And a voice came to him, which said: Simon, get up, kill and eat
14 ܘܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܚܤ ܡܪܝ ܕܡܡܬܘܡ ܠܐ ܐܟܠܬ ܟܠ ܕܡܤܝܒ ܘܛܡܐ
And Simon said: Far be it, my Lord, for I have never eaten anything that was profane and defiled
15 ܘܬܘܒ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܩܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܟܝ ܐܢܬ ܠܐ ܬܤܝܒ
And again the second time, there came a voice to him: What God has made clean, you should not call profane
16 ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܗܘܬ ܬܠܬ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܘܐܬܥܠܝ ܠܗ ܡܐܢܐ ܠܫܡܝܐ
And this was done three times, and the cloth was taken up to heaven
17ܘܟܕ ܡܬܕܡܪ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܢܦܫܗ ܕܡܢܘ ܚܙܘܐ ܕܚܙܐ ܡܛܝܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܫܬܕܪܘ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܘܤ ܘܫܐܠܘ ܥܠ ܒܝܬܐ ܕܫܪܐ ܒܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܐܬܘ ܘܩܡܘ ܥܠ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܕܪܬܐ
And while Simon was wondering to himself what the vision he had seen meant, the men sent by Cornelius arrived, and they asked for the house in which Simon stayed, and came and stood at the gate of the yard
18 ܘܩܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܘܡܫܐܠܝܢ ܕܐܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܟܐܦܐ ܗܪܟܐ ܫܪܐ
?And from there they called out and asked if a Simon who is called Kephas stayed there
19 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܪܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܗܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܬܠܬܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܠܟ
And while Simon was reflecting on the vision, the Spirit said to him: Behold, three men are asking for you
20 ܩܘܡ ܚܘܬ ܘܙܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܠܐ ܡܬܦܠܓ ܪܥܝܢܟ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܢܐ ܗܘ ܫܕܪܬ ܐܢܘܢ
Get up, go down and go with them, and do not let your mind doubt, for I have sent them
21 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܚܬ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܓܒܪܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܐ ܗܘ ܕܒܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܝܕܐ ܗܝ ܥܠܬܐ ܕܡܛܠܬܗ ܐܬܝܬܘܢ
?Then Simon went down to the men, and said to them: I am he whom you ask for, what is the reason for which you have come
22 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܘܤ ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܟܐܢܐ ܕܕܚܠ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܡܤܗܕ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܬܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܡܢ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܢܫܕܪ ܢܥܠܟ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܘܢܫܡܥ ܡܠܬܐ ܡܢܟ
They say to him: A certain man whose name is Cornelius, a devout centurion, and whom all the people of the Jews have good things to say, was told in a vision, by a holy angel, to send for and bring you to his house, so he might hear you preach
23 ܘܐܥܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܩܒܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܪ ܕܫܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܩܡ ܠܒܬܪܗ ܕܝܘܡܐ ܘܢܦܩ ܐܙܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܥܡܗ ܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܡܢ ܐܚܐ ܕܝܘܦܐ
And Simon led them in, and welcomed them where he stayed And the following day, he got up, left, and went with them and some of the brothers of Joppa went with them, too
24 ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܥܠ ܠܩܤܪܝܐ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܘܤ ܕܝܢ ܡܩܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܡܟܢܫܝܢ ܠܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܛܘܗܡܗ ܘܐܦ ܪܚܡܐ ܚܒܝܒܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
And the next day, they entered Caesarea And Cornelius was waiting for them, and all his family relatives, and so too, the close friends he had, were gathered with him
25 ܘܟܕ ܥܐܠ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܪܥܗ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܘܤ ܘܢܦܠ ܤܓܕ ܠܪܓܠܘܗܝ
And as Simon came up, Cornelius met him, and fell down paying homage at his feet
26 ܘܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܩܝܡܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܡ ܠܟ ܘܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܐܢܐ
And Simon lifted him up, and said to him: Get up, I am a man as well
27 ܘܟܕ ܡܡܠܠ ܥܡܗ ܥܠ ܘܐܫܟܚ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܐܬܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܬܡܢ
And as he talked with him, he went in, and found that many had come there
28 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܦܤ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܢܩܦ ܠܐܢܫܐ ܢܘܟܪܝܐ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܪ ܫܪܒܬܗ ܘܠܝ ܐܠܗܐ ܚܘܝܢܝ ܕܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܥܠ ܐܢܫ ܕܛܡܐ ܐܘ ܡܤܝܒ
And he said to them: You know, that it is unlawful for a Jewish man, to associate with a stranger who is not of his race, but God has showed me that I should not say that anyone is defiled or profane
29 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܥܬܝܕܐܝܬ ܐܬܝܬ ܟܕ ܫܕܪܬܘܢ ܒܬܪܝ ܒܪܡ ܡܫܐܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܡܢܐ ܫܕܪܬܘܢ ܒܬܪܝ
?Therefore I came at once when you sent for me But, let me ask you, for what reason did you send for me
30 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܘܤ ܐܪܒܥܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܐܝܬ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܫܐ ܗܐ ܡܢ ܕܨܐܡ ܐܢܐ ܘܒܬܫܥ ܫܥܝܢ ܟܕ ܡܨܠܐ ܐܢܐ ܒܒܝܬܝ ܩܡ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܩܕܡܝ ܟܕ ܠܒܝܫ ܚܘܪܐ
And Cornelius said to him: It is four days ago that, behold, as I was fasting, and at three in the afternoon, while I was praying in my house, a certain man stood before me, cloaked in white,
31 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܐ ܐܫܬܡܥܬ ܨܠܘܬܟ ܘܠܙܕܩܬܟ ܕܘܟܪܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ
and said to me: Cornelius, your prayer is heard, and there is a offering of your alms before God
32 ܒܪܡ ܫܕܪ ܠܝܘܦܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܝܬܐ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܟܐܦܐ ܗܐ ܫܪܐ ܒܒܝܬܗ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܘܪܤܝܐ ܕܥܠ ܝܕ ܝܡܐ ܘܗܘ ܢܐܬܐ ܢܡܠܠ ܥܡܟ
But send to the city of Joppa, and bring Simon who is called Kephas, behold, staying in the house of Simon the tanner, which is by the seaside. And he will come and speak with you
33 ܘܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܫܕܪܬ ܠܘܬܟ ܘܐܢܬ ܫܦܝܪ ܥܒܕܬ ܕܐܬܝܬ ܘܗܐ ܚܢܢ ܟܠܢ ܩܕܡܝܟ ܘܨܒܝܢܢ ܕܢܫܡܥ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܐܬܦܩܕ ܠܟ ܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ
And at that moment I sent for you, and you have done well to come, and behold, we are all here before you, and wanting to hear whatever is prescribed to you from God
34 ܦܬܚ ܕܝܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܦܘܡܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܒܫܪܪܐ ܐܕܪܟܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܢܤܒ ܒܐܦܐ
,And Simon opened his mouth, and said: Truly I realize that God is no respecter of personages
35 ܐܠܐ ܒܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܕܚܠ ܡܢܗ ܘܦܠܚ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܡܩܒܠ ܗܘ ܠܘܬܗ
.but, among all the nations, he who reveres him, and does what is right, is acceptable with him
36 ܡܠܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܫܕܪ ܠܒܢܝ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܘܤܒܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܫܠܡܐ ܘܫܝܢܐ ܒܝܕ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܢܘ ܡܪܝܐ ܕܟܠ
For the word which He sent to the sons of Israel, proclaiming to them peace and serenity by Jesus the Messiah, He is Lord of all
37 ܘܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܕܗܘܬ ܒܟܠܗ ܝܗܘܕ ܕܐܩܦܬ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܒܬܪ ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܐܟܪܙ ܝܘܚܢܢ
and you also know the word which was throughout Judaea, which started from Galilee, after the baptism that John preached
38 ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܡܢ ܢܨܪܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܫܚܗ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܒܚܝܠܐ ܘܗܘܝܘ ܕܡܬܟܪܟ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܐܤܐ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܬܢܟܝܘ ܡܢ ܒܝܫܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗ
regarding Jesus, who was from Nazareth, whom God anointed with the Holy Spirit and with power And it was He, who went about and healed those who were suffering from evil, because God was with him
39 ܘܚܢܢ ܤܗܕܘܗܝ ܥܠ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܒܟܠܗ ܐܪܥܐ ܕܝܗܘܕ ܘܕܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܠܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܬܠܐܘܗܝ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܥܠ ܩܝܤܐ ܘܩܛܠܘܗܝ
And we are his witnesses as to everything he did throughout the land of Judaea and in Jerusalem This same person the Jews hanged on a tree, and killed him
40 ܘܠܗ ܐܩܝܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܘܝܗܒܗ ܕܢܬܚܙܐ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ
,And God raised him up on the third day, and made him to be seen by uncovered eyes
41 ܠܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܓܒܝܢ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܤܗܕܐ ܕܐܟܠܢ ܥܡܗ ܘܐܫܬܝܢ ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܩܝܡܬܗ ܕܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ
not so by all the people, but by us, who were chosen by God to be his witnesses, who ate and drank with him after his resurrection from the dead
42 ܘܦܩܕܢ ܕܢܟܪܙ ܘܢܤܗܕ ܠܥܡܐ ܕܗܢܘ ܕܐܬܦܪܫ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܢܐ ܕܚܝܐ ܘܕܡܝܬܐ
And he ordered us to proclaim and testify to the people, that he is appointed from God to be judge of the living and dead
43 ܘܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܤܗܕܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܟܠܡܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܒܫܡܗ ܢܩܒܠ ܫܘܒܩܢ ܚܛܗܐ
And of him all the prophets testify, that whoever believes in his name, will receive forgiveness of sins
44 ܘܟܕ ܗܘ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܐܓܢܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܥܠ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܠܬܐ
And while Simon was speaking these things, the Holy Spirit descended on all those who were hearing the word
45 ܘܬܡܗܘ ܘܬܗܪܘ ܐܚܐ ܓܙܝܪܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܬܘ ܥܡܗ ܕܐܦ ܥܠ ܥܡܡܐ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܐܫܬܦܥܬ
And the converted brothers who came with him were awed and astonished, that the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out upon the pagans as well
46 ܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܟܕ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܒܠܫܢ ܠܫܢ ܘܡܘܪܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ
:For they heard them as they spoke with different languages, and exalting God And Simon said
47 ܕܠܡܐ ܡܝܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܫ ܟܠܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܥܡܕܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܗܐ ܩܒܠܘ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܚܢܢ
?Can anyone refuse water so those should not be baptized, those who have received, behold, the Holy Spirit, as well as us
48 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܦܩܕ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܥܡܕܘܢ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܒܥܘ ܡܢܗ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܩܘܐ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ
Then he ordered them to be baptized in the name of our Lord Jesus the Messiah. And they asked him to stay days with them

Chapter 11

1 ܘܐܫܬܡܥܬ ܗܘܬ ܠܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܠܐܚܐ ܕܒܝܗܘܕ ܕܐܦ ܥܡܡܐ ܩܒܠܘ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
.And the Apostles and the brothers in Judaea heard that the pagans had also accepted the word of God
2 ܘܟܕ ܤܠܩ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܕܝܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܓܙܘܪܬܐ
,And when Simon come up to Jerusalem, those who were converts criticized him
3 ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܠܘܬ ܐܢܫܐ ܥܘܪܠܐ ܥܠ ܘܠܥܤ ܥܡܗܘܢ
.saying; that he had visited with pagan converts, and had eaten with them
4 ܘܐܩܦ ܗܘܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܬܪ ܒܬܪ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
:And Simon began to respond with details, one after another, saying
5 ܕܟܕ ܡܨܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܒܝܘܦܐ ܚܙܝܬ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܕܢܚܬ ܗܘܐ ܡܐܢܐ ܚܕ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܕܡܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܬܢܐ ܘܐܤܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܒܐܪܒܥ ܩܪܢܬܗ ܘܫܐܒ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܘܬܝ
As I was praying in Joppa, I saw in vision something like a sheet come down, and it was tied at its four corners, and it descended from heaven and came even to me
6 ܘܚܪܬ ܒܗ ܘܚܙܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܚܝܘܬܐ ܕܐܪܒܥܬ ܪܓܠܝܗܝܢ ܘܪܚܫܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܘܐܦ ܦܪܚܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
And as I looked upon it, and I saw that in it were four-legged animals, and crawling things of the earth, and birds of the sky 
7 ܘܫܡܥܬ ܗܘܝܬ ܩܠܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܝ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܩܘܡ ܟܘܤ ܘܐܟܘܠ
And I heard a voice saying to me: Simon, get up, kill, and eat
8 ܘܐܡܪܬ ܚܤ ܡܪܝ ܕܡܡܬܘܡ ܠܐ ܥܠ ܠܦܘܡܝ ܕܛܡܐ ܘܕܡܤܝܒ
And I said: Far be it, my Lord For never has any thing profane or defiled entered my mouth
9 ܘܬܘܒ ܩܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܟܝ ܐܢܬ ܠܐ ܬܤܝܒ
And again, a voice from heaven said to me: What God has made clean, you should not call profane
10 ܗܕܐ ܗܘܬ ܬܠܬ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܘܐܤܬܠܩ ܠܗ ܟܠܡܕܡ ܠܫܡܝܐ
And this was done three times, and then everything was taken up to heaven
11 ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܬܠܬܐ ܓܒܪܝܢ ܕܐܫܬܕܪܘ ܠܘܬܝ ܡܢ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܘܤ ܡܢ ܩܤܪܝܐ ܐܬܘ ܘܩܡܘ ܥܠ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܕܪܬܐ ܕܫܪܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܒܗ
And at the same moment, three men who were sent to me by Cornelius from Caesarea, came and stood at the gate of the courtyard of where I stayed
12 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܙܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܦܘܠܓܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܥܡܝ ܐܦ ܗܠܝܢ ܫܬܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܘܥܠܢ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܕܓܒܪܐ
.And the Spirit said to me: Go with them without delay And these six brothers also went with me, and we entered the man's house
13 ܘܐܫܬܥܝ ܠܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܚܙܐ ܒܒܝܬܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܩܡ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܕܫܕܪ ܠܝܘܦܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܝܬܐ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܟܐܦܐ
And he related to us, how he had seen an angel in his house, who stood and said to him: Send to the city of Joppa, and bring a Simon who is called Kephas
14 ܘܗܘ ܢܡܠܠ ܥܡܟ ܡܠܐ ܕܒܗܝܢ ܬܚܐ ܐܢܬ ܘܟܠܗ ܒܝܬܟ
and he will speak to you words by which you will Live, you and all your household
15 ܘܟܕ ܐܩܦܬ ܗܘܝܬ ܬܡܢ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ ܐܓܢܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܥܠܝܢ ܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ
.And when I started speaking there, the Holy Spirit came over them as it did for us at the beginning
16 ܘܐܬܕܟܪܬ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܥܡܕ ܒܡܝܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܬܥܡܕܘܢ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
And I remembered the words of our Lord when he said: John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit
17 ܐܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܠܗܐ ܫܘܝܐܝܬ ܝܗܒܗ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܦ ܠܢ ܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܗܘܝܬ ܕܐܤܦܩ ܗܘܝܬ ܕܐܟܠܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ
?If God then gave the gift equally to the pagans that believed in our Lord Jesus Messiah, as he did to us, who was I that I should dispute God
18 ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܫܡܥܘ ܫܠܝܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܫܒܚܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܟܒܪ ܐܦ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܝܗܒ ܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܠܚܝܐ
And when they heard these words they relented, and they glorified God and said: Perhaps God has also granted the pagans repentance that leads to Life
19 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܬܒܕܪܘ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܐܤܛܦܢܘܤ ܡܛܝܘ ܗܘܘ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܦܘܢܝܩܐ ܘܐܦ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܕܩܘܦܪܘܤ ܘܠܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ ܟܕ ܥܡ ܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܠܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܥܡ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ
And they who were scattered by the persecution which happened on account of Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia, and even to the region of Cyprus, and to Antioch, preaching the word to none but the Jews alone
20 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܩܘܦܪܘܤ ܘܡܢ ܩܘܪܝܢܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܥܠܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ ܘܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡ ܝܘܢܝܐ ܘܡܤܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ
And there were some of them from Cyprus and from Cyrene, who went up to Antioch, and spoke to the Greeks, and preached concerning our Lord Jesus
21 ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܘܐܬܦܢܝܘ ܠܘܬ ܡܪܝܐ
And the hand of the Lord was with them, and many believed, and turned to the Lord
22 ܘܐܫܬܡܥܬ ܗܘܬ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܠܐܕܢܝܗܘܢ ܕܒܢܝ ܥܕܬܐ ܕܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܫܕܪܘ ܠܒܪܢܒܐ ܠܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ
And this news came to the attention of the sons of the church at Jerusalem, and they sent BarNabas to Antioch 
23 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܠܬܡܢ ܘܚܙܐ ܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܚܕܝ ܘܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܒܟܠܗ ܠܒܗܘܢ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܢܩܝܦܝܢ ܠܡܪܢ
And when he came there and saw the grace of God, he rejoiced, and he pleaded them, that they should follow with all their heart our Lord
24 ܡܛܠ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܛܒܐ ܘܡܫܡܠܝ ܗܘܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܐܬܬܘܤܦ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܠܡܪܢ
For he was a good man, and was full of the Holy Spirit, and faith And many people were added to our Lord
25 ܘܗܘ ܢܦܩ ܗܘܐ ܠܛܪܤܘܤ ܠܡܒܥܐ ܠܫܐܘܠ
.And then he departed for Tarsus to search for Saul
26 ܘܟܕ ܐܫܟܚܗ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܥܡܗ ܠܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ ܘܫܢܬܐ ܟܠܗ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܥܕܬܐ ܘܐܠܦܘ ܥܡܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܕܡܝܬ ܐܬܩܪܝܘ ܒܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܟܪܤܛܝܢܐ
And when he had found him, he brought him with him to Antioch And for a whole year they met together in the church, and taught many people From that time onward, the disciples were called Christians, first, at Antioch
27 ܘܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܐܬܘ ܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܠܬܡܢ ܢܒܝܐ
.In those days prophets came there from Jerusalem
28 ܘܩܡ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܓܒܘܤ ܘܐܘܕܥ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܪܘܚ ܕܟܦܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܐܪܥܐ ܘܗܘܐ ܟܦܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܝܘܡܝ ܩܠܘܕܝܘܤ ܩܤܪ
And one of them whose name was Agabus, stood up and foretold thru the Spirit that there would be a great famine throughout the land And that famine happened in the days of Claudius Caesar
29 ܒܪܡ ܕܝܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܦܪܫܘ ܕܢܫܕܪܘܢ ܠܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܐܚܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܝܗܘܕ
And then the disciples, each one according to his inate ability, chose to send for the relief of the brothers who lived in Judaea
30 ܘܫܕܪܘ ܒܝܕ ܒܪܢܒܐ ܘܫܐܘܠ ܠܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܬܡܢ
.And they sent it thru BarNabas and Saul to the elders there

Chapter 12

1 ܒܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܙܒܢܐ ܐܪܡܝ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܕܝܐ ܥܠ ܐܢܫܝܢ ܕܒܥܕܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܒܐܫ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܪܘܕܤ ܡܠܟܐ ܗܘ ܕܡܬܟܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܓܪܦܘܤ
And at that very time Herod, the king named Agrippa, arrested some of the church, to persecute them
2 ܘܩܛܠ ܒܤܝܦܐ ܠܝܥܩܘܒ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ
.And he killed James the brother of John with the sword
3 ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܫܦܪܬ ܗܕܐ ܠܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܘܤܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܐܚܕ ܐܦ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܦܛܝܪܐ
And when he saw that this pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Simon Kephas, too. And this so passed during the days of unleavened bread
4 ܘܐܚܕܗ ܘܐܪܡܝܗ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܘܐܫܠܡ ܠܗ ܫܬܬܥܤܪ ܤܛܪܛܘܛܝܢ ܕܢܛܪܘܢܗ ܕܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܦܨܚܐ ܢܫܠܡܝܘܗܝ ܠܥܡܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ
He arrested him and threw him into prison, and handed him over to sixteen soldiers to guard him, so he might hand him over to the Jewish people after the Passover
5 ܘܟܕ ܗܘ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܡܬܢܛܪ ܗܘܐ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܨܠܘܬܐ ܐܡܝܢܬܐ ܡܬܩܪܒܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܢ ܥܕܬܐ ܚܠܦܘܗܝ ܠܐܠܗܐ
.And while Simon was kept in the prison, continual prayer was offered to God by the church on his behalf
6 ܘܒܗ ܒܗܘ ܠܠܝܐ ܕܠܨܦܪܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܫܠܡܝܘܗܝ ܟܕ ܕܡܟ ܗܘܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܝܬ ܬܪܝܢ ܐܤܛܪܛܝܘܛܝܢ ܘܐܤܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܒܬܪܬܝܢ ܫܫܠܢ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܛܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ
And on the night before the morning on which he was to be handed over, while Simon was sleeping between two soldiers, and was bound with two chains, and others were guarding the doors of the prison
7 ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܩܡ ܠܥܠ ܡܢܗ ܘܢܘܗܪܐ ܐܙܠܓ ܒܟܠܗ ܒܝܬܐ ܘܕܩܪܗ ܒܓܒܗ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܡ ܥܓܠ ܘܢܦܠ ܫܫܠܬܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܕܘܗܝ
an angel of the Lord stood over him, and a light shone in all the building, and he tapped him on his side, and woke him, and said to him: Get up, quickly And the chains fell off from his hands
8 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܐܤܘܪ ܚܨܝܟ ܘܤܐܢ ܛܠܪܝܟ ܘܥܒܕ ܗܟܢܐ ܘܬܘܒ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܬܥܛܦ ܬܟܤܝܬܟ ܘܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ
And the angel said to him: Put on your belt and your sandals And he did so And again he said to him: Wrap your cloak around you, and follow me
9 ܘܢܦܩ ܘܐܙܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܬܪܗ ܟܕ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܕܫܪܝܪܐ ܗܘܬ ܗܝ ܕܗܘܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܝܕ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܤܒܪ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܚܙܘܐ ܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ
And he went out and followed him, not knowing what had been really done by the angel, for he thought that he was envisioning it
10 ܘܟܕ ܥܒܪܘ ܡܛܪܬܐ ܩܕܡܝܬܐ ܘܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܐܬܘ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܬܪܥܐ ܕܦܪܙܠܐ ܘܐܬܦܬܚ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܨܒܘܬ ܢܦܫܗ ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩܘ ܘܥܒܪܘ ܫܘܩܐ ܚܕ ܦܪܩ ܡܢ ܠܘܬܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ
And when they passed the first and second guard, they came to the iron gate, and it opened to them on its own accord And when they had gone out, and had passed one street, the angel left him
11 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܫܬܘܕܥ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܫܐ ܝܕܥܬ ܒܩܘܫܬܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܫܕܪ ܡܠܐܟܗ ܘܦܠܛܢܝ ܡܢ ܐܝܕܗ ܕܗܪܘܕܤ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܡܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܡܬܚܫܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܝ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ
Then Simon came to himself, and he said: Now I know that God has really sent his angel, and released me from the grip of King Herod the king, and from what the Jews were scheming against me
12 ܘܟܕ ܐܤܬܟܠ ܐܬܐ ܠܗ ܠܒܝܬܐ ܕܡܪܝܡ ܐܡܗ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܟܢܝ ܡܪܩܘܤ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܚܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܬܡܢ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܨܠܝܢ
And when he had understood, he went to the house of Mary, the mother of John named Mark, for many brothers were gathered praying there
13 ܘܢܩܫ ܒܬܪܥܐ ܕܕܪܬܐ ܘܢܦܩܬ ܕܬܥܢܝܘܗܝ ܛܠܝܬܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܪܘܕܐ
And he knocked at the gate of the courtyard, and a servant named Rhoda came to answer him
14 ܘܐܫܬܘܕܥܬ ܩܠܗ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܒܚܕܘܬܗ ܠܐ ܦܬܚܬ ܠܗ ܬܪܥܐ ܐܠܐ ܗܦܟܬ ܒܪܗܛܐ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܗܐ ܩܐܡ ܥܠ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܕܪܬܐ
And she recognized the voice of Simon: and in her joy, she did not open the gate for him, but ran back and told them: Behold, Simon is standing at the courtyard gate 
15 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܙܥ ܙܥܬܝ ܠܟܝ ܘܗܝ ܡܬܚܪܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܕܗܕܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܗܝ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܟܒܪ ܡܠܐܟܗ ܗܘ
They said to her: You are out of your mind But she insisted that it was true They said to her: Perhaps it is his angel
16 ܘܫܡܥܘܢ ܢܩܫ ܗܘܐ ܒܬܪܥܐ ܘܢܦܩܘ ܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܘܬܡܗܘ ܠܗܘܢ
.And Simon was still knocking at the gate, and they went outside, saw him, and were astonished
17ܘܡܢܝܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܗ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܫܬܩܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܥܠ ܘܐܫܬܥܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܦܩܗ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܫܬܥܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܠܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܠܐܚܝܢ ܘܢܦܩ ܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܠܐܬܪ ܐܚܪܝܢ
And he gestured them by hand to be quiet, and he went in, and described to them how the Lord had released him from the prison And he said to them: Tell these things to James and to the brothers. And he left and went to another place
18 ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܨܦܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܪܘܒܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܛܪܛܝܘܛܐ ܥܠ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܡܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ
And when it was morning, there was a great commotion among the soldiers about Simon and what had become of him
19 ܗܪܘܕܤ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܒܥܝܗܝ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܗ ܕܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܢܛܘܪܐ ܘܦܩܕ ܕܢܡܘܬܘܢ ܘܢܦܩ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕ ܘܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܒܩܤܪܝܐ
And Herod, when he had him searched for, could not find him, questioned the guards, and ordered them put to death And he went from Judaea, and took up residence at Caesarea
20 ܘܡܛܠ ܕܪܓܝܙ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܨܘܪܝܐ ܘܥܠ ܨܝܕܢܝܐ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܘܐܦܝܤܘ ܠܒܠܤܛܘܤ ܩܝܛܘܢܩܢܗ ܕܡܠܟܐ ܘܫܐܠܘ ܡܢܗ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܝܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܦܘܪܢܤܐ ܕܐܬܪܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܗܘܐ ܕܗܪܘܕܤ
And because he was angry with the Tyrians and Sidonians, they gathered and came to him in a body; and having persuaded Blastus, the king's chamberlain, they urged him that they might have peace, because the food supplies of their country depended on the kingdom of Herod
21 ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܝܥܐ ܠܒܫ ܗܘܐ ܗܪܘܕܤ ܠܒܘܫܐ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܘܝܬܒ ܥܠ ܒܝܡ ܘܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡ ܟܢܫܐ
And on an appointed day, Herod was wore robes of state, and sat on a tribunal, and made a speech to those gathered
22 ܥܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗ ܩܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܒܢܬ ܩܠܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܢܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܝ ܕܒܢܝܢܫܐ
.And all the people shouted, and said: This is the voice of a God, and not of a mortal
23 ܘܚܠܦ ܕܠܐ ܝܗܒ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܡܚܝܗܝ ܡܠܐܟܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܪܦܬ ܒܬܘܠܥܐ ܘܡܝܬ
And, because he had not given the glory to God, that moment the angel of God struck him down, and he was eaten away with worms, and died
24 ܘܤܒܪܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܬܟܪܙܐ ܗܘܬ ܘܪܒܝܐ
.And the gospel of God was proclaimed, and spread
25 ܒܪܢܒܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܫܐܘܠ ܦܢܘ ܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܠܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܕܫܠܡܘ ܬܫܡܫܬܗܘܢ ܘܕܒܪܘ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܟܢܝ ܡܪܩܘܤ
And BarNabas and Saul, after they had completed their task, returned from Jerusalem to Antioch And they took with them John, who was named Mark

Chapter 13

1 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܥܕܬܐ ܕܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܘܡܠܦܢܐ ܒܪܢܒܐ ܘܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܢܝܓܪ ܘܠܘܩܝܤ ܕܡܢ ܩܘܪܝܢܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܡܢܐܝܠ ܒܪ ܡܪܒܝܢܘܗܝ ܕܗܪܘܕܤ ܛܛܪܪܟܐ ܘܫܐܘܠ
Now there were in the church at Antioch, prophets and teachers; BarNabas, and Simon, called Niger, and Lucius who was from the town of Cyrene, and Menael, a son of the governess of Herod the Tetrarch, and Saul
2 ܘܟܕ ܗܢܘܢ ܨܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܬܟܫܦܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܐܡܪܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܦܪܘܫܘ ܠܝ ܠܫܐܘܠ ܘܠܒܪܢܒܐ ܠܥܒܕܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܩܪܝܬ ܐܢܘܢ
And while they fasted and offered worship to God, the Holy Spirit said to them: Appoint to me Saul and BarNabas, to the work for which I have called them
3 ܘܒܬܪ ܕܨܡܘ ܘܨܠܝܘ ܤܡܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܐ ܘܫܕܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ
And after they had fasted and prayed, they laid the hands on them, and sent them away
4 ܘܗܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܐܫܬܠܚܘ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܢܚܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܤܠܘܩܝܐ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܪܕܘ ܒܝܡܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܩܘܦܪܘܤ
And they, having been sent forth by the Holy Spirit, went down to Seleucia, and from there they went by sea as far as Cyprus
5 ܘܟܕ ܥܠܘ ܠܤܠܡܢܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܡܤܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܡܫܡܫ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ
And when they entered the city of Salamis, they preached the word of our Lord in the synagogues of the Jews And John ministered to them
6 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܟܪܟܘܗ ܠܟܠܗ ܓܙܪܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܦܦܘܤ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܚܪܫܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܓܠܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܒܪܫܘܡܐ
And when they had traveled the entire island as far as the city Paphos, they found a certain man, a Jewish magician, who was a false prophet, and whose name was Bar-Suma
7 ܗܢܐ ܕܒܝܩ ܗܘܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܚܟܝܡܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܬܘܦܛܘܤ ܘܡܬܩܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܤܪܓܝܘܤ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܩܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܬܘܦܛܘܤ ܠܫܐܘܠ ܘܠܒܪܢܒܐ ܘܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܫܡܥ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
He was close to a wise man called Sergius Paulus, who was the proconsul And the proconsul sent for Saul and BarNabas, and wanted to hear from them the word of God
8 ܩܐܡ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܘܩܒܠܗܘܢ ܗܘ ܗܢܐ ܚܪܫܐ ܒܪܫܘܡܐ ܕܡܬܬܪܓܡ ܫܡܗ ܐܠܘܡܤ ܡܛܠ ܕܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܥܩܡܝܘܗܝ ܠܐܢܬܘܦܛܘܤ ܡܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ
And this magician, Bar-Suma, - whose name means Elymas, - tried to hinder them, wanting to keep the proconsul away from the faith
9 ܫܐܘܠ ܕܝܢ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܩܪܝ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܐܬܡܠܝ ܗܘܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܚܪ ܒܗ
,And Saul, who is called Paul, was filled with the Holy Spirit, and he looked at him
10 ܘܐܡܪ ܐܘ ܕܡܠܐ ܟܠ ܢܟܠܝܢ ܘܟܠܗܝܢ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܟܠ ܩܪܨܐ ܘܒܥܠܕܒܒܐ ܕܟܠܗ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܠܐ ܫܠܐ ܐܢܬ ܠܡܥܩܡܘ ܐܘܪܚܬܗ ܬܪܝܨܬܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ
and said: Oh you, full of every sort of fraud and evilness, you son of the devil, and enemy of all righteousness, will you not stop twisting the right ways of the Lord
11 ܘܗܫܐ ܐܝܕܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܥܠܝܟ ܘܬܗܘܐ ܤܡܐ ܘܠܐ ܬܚܙܐ ܫܡܫܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܙܒܢܐ ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܢܦܠ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܥܡܛܢܐ ܘܚܫܘܟܐ ܘܡܬܟܪܟ ܗܘܐ ܘܒܥܐ ܕܡܢܘ ܢܐܚܘܕ ܒܐܝܕܗ
And now, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you will be blind, and will not see the sun for a time And at that moment there fell upon him a mist and darkness, and he went about, asking who would lead him by the hand
12 ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܬܘܦܛܘܤ ܡܕܡ ܕܗܘܐ ܐܬܕܡܪ ܘܗܝܡܢ ܒܝܘܠܦܢܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ
.And when the proconsul saw what happened, he was astonished; and he believed the in teachings of the Lord
13 ܦܘܠܘܤ ܕܝܢ ܘܒܪܢܒܐ ܪܕܘ ܒܝܡܐ ܡܢ ܦܦܘܤ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܦܪܓܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܦܡܦܘܠܝܐ ܘܦܪܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
And Paul and BarNabas went by sea, from the city of Paphos to Perga in Pamphylia And John left them and went back to Jerusalem
14 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܢܦܩܘ ܡܢ ܦܪܓܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܦܝܤܝܕܝܐ ܘܥܠܘ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܝܬܒܘ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܘܫܒܬܐ
.And they left Perga, and came to Antioch, a city of Pisidia, and they went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and sat down
15 ܘܒܬܪ ܕܐܬܩܪܝ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܘܢܒܝܐ ܫܠܚܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܒܘܝܐܐ ܡܠܠܘ ܥܡ ܥܡܐ
And after the reading of the Law, and the prophets, the elders of the synagogue sent word to them, and said: Men, brothers, if you have a word of encouragement, speak to the people
16 ܘܩܡ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܐܢܝܦ ܐܝܕܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܒܢܝ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܚܠܝܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܫܡܥܘ
And Paul got up, and lifted up his hands, and said: Men, sons of Israel, and you that fear God, listen
17 ܐܠܗܗ ܕܥܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܓܒܐ ܠܐܒܗܬܢ ܘܐܪܝܡ ܘܐܘܪܒ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܗܘܘ ܬܘܬܒܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܕܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܒܕܪܥܐ ܪܡܐ ܐܦܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢܗ
The God of this people chose our forefathers, and exalted them, and multiplied them, when they lived in the land of Egypt, and with a strong arm brought them out of it
18 ܘܬܪܤܝ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ
.And he fed them in the wilderness for forty years
19 ܘܗܓܡ ܫܒܥܐ ܥܡܡܝܢ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܕܟܢܥܢ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܪܥܗܘܢ ܠܝܘܪܬܢܐ
And he destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan, and gave them their land for an inheritance
20 ܘܐܪܒܥ ܡܐܐ ܘܚܡܫܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܝܢܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܡܘܐܝܠ ܢܒܝܐ
.And for four hundred and fifty years he gave them judges, until the prophet Samuel
21 ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܐܠܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܫܐܘܠ ܒܪ ܩܝܫ ܓܒܪܐ ܡܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܕܒܢܝܡܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ
And then they asked for themselves a king, and God gave them Saul the son of Kish, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, for forty years
22 ܘܢܤܒܗ ܘܐܩܝܡ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܕܘܝܕ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܐܤܗܕ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܐܫܟܚܬ ܠܕܘܝܕ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܝܫܝ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܝܟ ܠܒܝ ܗܘ ܢܥܒܕ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܨܒܝܢܝ
And he took him away, and raised up to them David as king, and he testified of him, and said: I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after my heart, to do my will
23 ܡܢ ܙܪܥܗ ܕܗܢܐ ܐܩܝܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܐܫܬܘܕܝ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܦܪܘܩܐ
From the line of this man, God has raised up as he promised for Israel, a Saviour, Jesus
24 ܘܫܕܪ ܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܕܢܟܪܙ ܩܕܡ ܡܐܬܝܬܗ ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܠܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܕܐܝܤܪܝܠ
.And, before his coming, he sent John to proclaim the baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel
25 ܘܟܕ ܡܫܠܡ ܗܘܐ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܬܫܡܫܬܗ ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܘ ܤܒܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܝܬܝ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܗܐ ܐܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܫܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܫܪܐ ܥܪܩܐ ܕܡܤܢܘܗܝ
And as John fulfilled his ministry, he said: Who do you think that I am ? I am not He But behold, one comes after me, He of whom I am not worthy to untie his sandal straps
26 ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܒܢܝ ܫܪܒܬܗ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܚܠܝܢ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܘ ܐܫܬܕܪܬ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܚܝܐ
Men, brothers, descendants of the line of Abraham, and all who, with you, have reverence for God, to you is this word of Life sent
27 ܗܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܥܡܘܪܐ ܕܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܪܫܢܝܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܐܪܓܫܘ ܒܗ ܐܦܠܐ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܢ ܒܟܠ ܫܒܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܢܘܗܝ ܘܫܠܡܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܟܬܝܒܢ
For, those inhabitants of Jerusalem and their rulers did not realize it, nor, too, the scriptures of the prophets which are read every Sabbath, but they condemned him, and so fulfilled all the things written
28 ܘܟܕ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܥܠܬܐ ܕܡܘܬܐ ܡܕܡ ܫܐܠܘ ܡܢ ܦܝܠܛܘܤ ܕܢܩܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ
And while they found no grounds for his death, they asked Pilate that they might kill him
29 ܘܟܕ ܫܠܡܘ ܟܠܡܕܡ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܚܬܘܗܝ ܡܢ ܨܠܝܒܐ ܘܤܡܘܗܝ ܒܝܬ ܩܒܘܪܐ
And when they had carried out everything that was written of him, they took him down from the cross, and laid him in a tomb
30 ܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܩܝܡܗ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ
.But God raised him from the dead
31 ܘܐܬܚܙܝ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܤܠܩܘ ܥܡܗ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܗܫܐ ܤܗܕܘܗܝ ܠܘܬ ܥܡܐ
And for many days he appeared to those who accompanied him from Galilee to Jerusalem, and they are now his witnesses to the people
32 ܘܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܗܐ ܡܤܒܪܝܢܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܫܘܘܕܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܗܘܐ ܠܘܬ ܐܒܗܬܢ
And behold, we also tell to you the Good News, that the promise which was made to our forefathers
33 ܗܐ ܫܡܠܝܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܢ ܠܒܢܝܗܘܢ ܕܐܩܝܡ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܒܡܙܡܘܪܐ ܕܬܪܝܢ ܕܒܪܝ ܐܢܬ ܐܢܐ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܝܠܕܬܟ
behold, God has fulfilled it to us, their children, in that he raised up Jesus, as it is written in the second psalm:You are my Son: this day you are born to me
34 ܘܗܟܢܐ ܐܩܝܡܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܕܬܘܒ ܠܐ ܢܗܦܘܟ ܢܚܙܐ ܚܒܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܐܬܠ ܠܟܘܢ ܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܡܗܝܡܢܬܐ
And God has so raised him from the dead, never return to corruption again; as he said: I will give to you the sure grace of David
35 ܘܬܘܒ ܐܡܪ ܒܕܘܟܬܐ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܗܒܬ ܠܚܤܝܟ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܚܒܠܐ
And again he said, in another place: You have not given your holy one to experience corruption
36 ܕܘܝܕ ܓܝܪ ܒܫܪܒܬܗ ܫܡܫ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܫܟܒ ܘܐܬܬܘܤܦ ܥܠ ܐܒܗܘܗܝ ܘܚܙܐ ܚܒܠܐ
For David, served the will of God in his generation, and went to his rest, and so buried with his forefathers, and experienced corruption
37 ܗܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܩܝܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܚܙܐ ܚܒܠܐ
But this one, whom God raised up, did not experience corruption
38 ܕܥܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܚܝ ܕܒܗ ܒܗܢܐ ܡܬܟܪܙ ܠܟܘܢ ܫܘܒܩܢ ܚܛܗܐ
Know therefore, brothers, that through this man the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you
39 ܘܡܢ ܟܠ ܕܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܬܘܢ ܒܢܡܘܤܐ ܕܡܘܫܐ ܕܬܙܕܕܩܘܢ ܒܗܢܐ ܟܠ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܡܙܕܕܩ
And all that believe in this man, are made justified from all things from which you could not be made justified by the Law of Moses
40 ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܐܬܐ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܒܢܒܝܐ
:Be careful, therefore, lest that which is written in the prophets happens to you
41 ܕܚܙܘ ܡܒܤܪܢܐ ܘܬܬܡܗܘܢ ܘܬܬܚܒܠܘܢ ܕܥܒܕܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܒܝܘܡܝܟܘܢ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܬܗܝܡܢܘܢ ܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܡܫܬܥܐ ܠܟܘܢ
Behold, you mockers, and wonder, and perish; for I do something in your days, which you would not believe, though a man told it to you
42 ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܨܐܕܝܗܘܢ ܒܥܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܠܫܒܬܐ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܢܡܠܠܘܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ
.And as they left them, they were asked to speak on the same theme to them the following Sabbath day
43 ܘܡܢ ܕܐܫܬܪܝܬ ܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗܘܢ ܘܐܦ ܓܝܘܪܐ ܕܕܚܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܦܝܤܝܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܢܩܝܦܝܢ ܠܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And when the meeting was over, many Jews, and devout converts as well, followed them And they spoke with them, and urged them to remain faithful to the grace of God
44 ܘܠܫܒܬܐ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܟܢܫܬ ܟܠܗ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܠܡܫܡܥ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
.And the next Sabbath, the entire city gathered to hear the word of God
45 ܘܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܚܤܡܐ ܘܩܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܡܠܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܡܓܕܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ
And when the Jews saw the great crowd, they were filled with envy, and contradicted the words Paul spoke, and used blasphemies
46 ܐܡܪ ܕܝܢ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܒܪܢܒܐ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܘ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܩܕܡܝܬ ܕܬܬܐܡܪ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܕܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܘܦܤܩܬܘܢ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܫܘܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܗܐ ܡܬܦܢܝܢܢ ܠܢ ܠܘܬ ܥܡܡܐ
And Paul and BarNabas said boldly: To you the word of God had to be spoken first; but since you have rejected it, and do not think yourselves worthy of Eternal Life, behold, we turn to the pagans
47 ܗܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܦܩܕܢ ܡܪܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܤܡܬܟ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܠܚܝܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܤܘܦܝܗ ܕܐܪܥܐ
For so has our Lord commanded us, as it is written: I have made you a light to the nations, that you may be for Life* unto the ends of the earth
48 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܡܐ ܚܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܫܒܚܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܗܝܡܢܘ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܤܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
And when the pagans heard, they rejoiced and glorified God And those who were destined to Eternal Life, believed
49 ܘܡܠܬܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܡܬܡܠܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܟܠܗ ܗܘ ܐܬܪܐ
.And so the word of the Lord was spoken about throughout all that region
50 ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܓܪܓܘ ܠܪܫܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܠܢܫܐ ܥܬܝܪܬܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܚܠܢ ܗܘܝ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܩܝܡܘ ܪܕܘܦܝܐ ܥܠ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܥܠ ܒܪܢܒܐ ܘܐܦܩܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢ ܬܚܘܡܝܗܘܢ
But the Jews worked up the rulers of the city, and the devout women of wealth, and persuaded them to turn against Paul and BarNabas, and expel them from their territory
51 ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩܘ ܢܦܨܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܚܠܐ ܕܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܝܩܢܘܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
.And when they left, they shook the dust from their feet towards them, and went off to the city of Iconium
52 ܘܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܡܬܡܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
.And the disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Spirit

Salvation *

Chapter 14

1 ܘܐܬܘ ܘܥܠܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܗܟܢܐ ܡܠܠܘ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܗܝܡܢܘܢ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܡܢ ܝܘܢܝܐ
And they came and went in the synagogue of the Jews, and spoke so with them that many of the Jews and of the Greeks believed
2 ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܛܦܝܤܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܪܓܘ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܕܢܒܐܫܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܚܐ
.But the Jews who did not believe aligned the pagans against the brothers
3 ܘܗܢܘܢ ܙܒܢܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܘܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠ ܡܪܝܐ ܘܗܘ ܡܤܗܕ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܒܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܒܬܕܡܪܬܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ ܒܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ
And they remained there a long time, and spoke boldly concerning the Lord, and he gave testimony to the word of His grace, by the signs and wonders which He performed by their hands
4 ܘܟܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܦܠܝܓ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܥܡ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܡܢܗܘܢ ܢܩܝܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܫܠܝܚܐ
.And the entire population of the city was divided, and some were with the Jews, and some followed the Apostles
5 ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܓܙܡܐ ܡܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܘܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܪܫܢܝܗܘܢ ܕܢܨܥܪܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܢܪܓܡܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܟܐܦܐ
And a move was made on them by the pagans, and by the Jews and their leaders, to make attacks on them, and to stone them with stones
6 ܘܟܕ ܝܕܥܘ ܫܢܝܘ ܘܐܬܓܘܤܘ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܠܘܩܢܝܐ ܠܘܤܛܪܐ ܘܕܪܒܐ ܘܩܘܪܝܐ ܕܚܕܪܝܗܝܢ
And when they realized it, they left and fled to the cities of Lycaonia and Lystra and Derbe, and to the villages around them
7 ܘܬܡܢ ܡܤܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ
.and there they preached
8 ܘܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܒܠܘܤܛܪܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܤܓܝܦ ܗܘܐ ܒܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܚܓܝܪܐ ܕܡܢ ܟܪܤ ܐܡܗ ܕܡܡܬܘܡ ܠܐ ܗܠܟ ܗܘܐ
And a certain man lived in the city Lystra, a cripple who had been lame from birth, who had never walked
9 ܗܢܐ ܫܡܥ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܕܡܡܠܠ ܘܟܕ ܚܙܝܗܝ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܐܫܬܘܕܥ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܢܚܐ
,He heard Paul speak, and when Paul saw him, and knew that he had faith to be healed
10 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܠܟ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܩܘܡ ܥܠ ܪܓܠܝܟ ܘܫܘܪ ܩܡ ܘܗܠܟ
he said to him, with a loud voice: In the name of our Lord Jesus the Messiah, I say to you, Get up on your feet. And he jumped up, stood, and walked
11 ܘܟܢܫܐ ܕܥܡܐ ܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܡܕܡ ܕܥܒܕ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܐܪܝܡܘ ܩܠܗܘܢ ܒܠܫܢܗ ܕܐܬܪܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܕܡܝܘ ܒܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܘܢܚܬܘ ܠܘܬܢ
And the crowd of people, when they saw what Paul had done, lifted up their voices in the language of that region, and said: The gods have taken on the appearance of men, and have come down to us
12 ܘܫܡܝܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܒܪܢܒܐ ܡܪܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܗܪܡܝܤ ܡܛܠ ܕܗܘ ܡܫܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܠܬܐ
.And they named BarNabas as the Lord of the Gods; and Paul as Hermes, because he was the head speaker
13 ܘܟܘܡܪܐ ܕܡܪܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܝܬܝ ܬܘܪܐ ܘܟܠܝܠܐ ܠܬܪܥܐ ܕܕܪܬܐ ܐܬܪ ܕܫܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܕܒܚ ܠܗܘܢ
And the priest of the Lord of the Gods, who was without the city, brought oxen and garlands to the gate of the courtyard where they stayed, and wanted to offer sacrifices to them
14 ܒܪܢܒܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܦܘܠܘܤ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܤܕܩܘ ܢܚܬܝܗܘܢ ܘܫܘܪܘ ܘܢܦܩܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܟܠܘܤ ܘܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ
But BarNabas and Paul, when they heard, tore open their clothes, and bolted out and went out into the crowd, and called out
15 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܚܢܢ ܚܫܘܫܐ ܐܟܘܬܟܘܢ ܕܡܤܒܪܝܢܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܒܛܠܬܐ ܬܬܦܢܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܚܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܥܒܕ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܐܪܥܐ ܘܝܡܡܐ ܘܟܠ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗܘܢ
and said: Men, what are you doing? We are also mere mortals, like yourselves, who preach to you, so you should turn from these useless things to the Living God, who made heaven and earth and the seas, and all things in them
16 ܗܘ ܕܒܕܪܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܫܒܩ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܕܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܬܐ ܕܢܦܫܗܘܢ
:He, in ages past, left all the nations to go in their own ways
17 ܟܕ ܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܢܦܫܗ ܕܠܐ ܤܗܕܘ ܒܕܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܛܒܬܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܡܚܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܛܪܐ ܘܡܪܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܦܐܪܐ ܒܙܒܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܡܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܬܘܪܤܝܐ ܘܒܤܝܡܘܬܐ ܠܒܘܬܗܘܢ
nevertheless, he did not leave without evidence of himself, in the good things He did from heaven, and sent down the rain, and made the fruits to grow in their seasons, and filled them with food and their hearts with joy
18 ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܡܚܤܢ ܟܠܘ ܠܥܡܐ ܕܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܢܕܒܚ ܠܗܘܢ
And, even with saying these things, they had difficulty discouraging the people from offering sacrifice to them
19 ܐܬܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܬܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܩܢܘܢ ܘܡܢ ܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ ܘܫܓܫܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܠܥܡܐ ܘܪܓܡܘܗܝ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܓܪܘܗܝ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܤܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܡܝܬ ܠܗ
But Jews came there from Iconium and Antioch, and stirred up the people against them And they stoned Paul, and dragged him out of the city, assuming that he was dead
20 ܘܟܢܫܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܩܡ ܥܠ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܦܩ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܥܡ ܒܪܢܒܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܕܪܒܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
And the disciples gathered around him, and he got up, and went back into the city And the following day, he left there with BarNabas, and they came to the city of Derbe
21 ܘܟܕ ܡܤܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܒܢܝ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܗܝ ܬܠܡܕܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܗܦܟܘ ܐܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܠܘܤܛܪܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܠܐܝܩܢܘܢ ܘܠܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ
And while they preached to the population of that city, they made many disciples And in returning, they came to the city Lystra, and to Iconium, and to Antioch
22 ܟܕ ܡܫܪܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܢܦܫܬܗܘܢ ܕܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܢܩܘܘܢ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܒܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܠܐ ܠܡܥܠ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
strengthening the souls of the disciples, and encouraging them to persevere in the faith, and telling them that we all have to experience many hardships, before entering the Realm of God
23 ܘܐܩܝܡܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܒܟܠ ܥܕܬܐ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܟܕ ܨܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܡܨܠܝܢ ܘܡܓܥܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܪܢ ܗܘ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܗ
And they appointed them elders in each church, and with fasting and prayer, they commended them to our Lord in whom they believed
24 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܟܪܟܘ ܒܐܬܪܐ ܕܦܝܤܝܕܝܐ ܐܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܦܡܦܘܠܝܐ
.And when they had traveled over the region of Pisidia they came to Pamphylia
25 ܘܟܕ ܡܠܠܘ ܒܦܪܓܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܢܚܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܝܛܠܝܐ
.And after they had spoken the word of the Lord in the city of Perga, they went down to Attalia
26 ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܪܕܘ ܒܝܡܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܡܓܥܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܠܥܒܕܐ ܗܘ ܕܫܠܡܘ
And from there they sailed by sea, and came to Antioch, where they had been commended to the grace of the Lord for the work which they had completed
27 ܘܟܕ ܟܢܫܘ ܟܠܗ ܥܕܬܐ ܡܫܬܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܡܕܡ ܕܥܒܕ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܕܦܬܚ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܠܥܡܡܐ
And when they had assembled together the entire church, they gave an account of all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith to the pagans
28 ܘܙܒܢܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ
.And they stayed a long time there with the disciples
