Chapter 15

1 ܢܚܬܘ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕ ܘܡܠܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܚܐ ܕܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܓܙܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܥܝܕܐ ܕܢܡܘܤܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܚܐ
And from Judaea, certain men came down who taught the brothers, that unless you are circumcised, in accordance with the tradition of the Law, you cannot have *Life
2 ܘܗܘܐ ܫܓܘܫܝܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܒܥܬܐ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܠܒܪܢܒܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܗܘܬ ܕܢܤܩܘܢ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܒܪܢܒܐ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܡܛܠ ܗܕܐ ܒܥܬܐ
And Paul and BarNabas had a long argument and disagreement with them And so it came to pass that Paul and BarNabas, and others with them, went up to the Apostles and Elders in Jerusalem, about this issue
3 ܘܠܘܝܬ ܫܕܪܬ ܐܢܘܢ ܥܕܬܐ ܘܪܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܟܠܗ ܦܘܢܝܩܐ ܘܐܦ ܒܝܬ ܫܡܪܝܐ ܟܕ ܡܫܬܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠ ܦܘܢܝܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ ܘܥܒܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܚܐ
And the church provided for them, and sent them on their way, and they passed through all Phoenicia and the territory of the Samaritans, telling of the conversion of the pagans, and bringing great joy to all the brothers
4 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܐܬܩܒܠܘ ܡܢ ܥܕܬܐ ܘܡܢ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܡܢ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܐܫܬܥܝܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ
And as they arrived in Jerusalem, they were received by the church, and by the Elders, and by the Apostles, and they reported everything that God had done with them
5 ܩܡܘ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܘܠܐ ܗܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܡܓܙܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܬܦܩܕܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܢܛܪܘܢ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܕܡܘܫܐ
And some converts from the sect of the Pharisees stood up and said: You must circumcise them, and require them to keep the Law of Moses
6 ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܕܝܢ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܢܚܙܘܢ ܥܠ ܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ
And the Apostles and Elders convened to consider this matter
7 ܘܟܕ ܗܘܬ ܒܥܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ ܩܡ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܡܢ ܦܘܡܝ ܕܝܠܝ ܓܒܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܢܫܡܥܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܤܒܪܬܐ ܘܢܗܝܡܢܘܢ
And after long discussion, Simon stood up and said to them: Men, brothers, you know from earlier days, God chose that from my mouth the pagans should hear the word of the Gospel, and believe
8 ܘܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܕܥ ܕܒܠܒܘܬܐ ܐܤܗܕ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܠܢ
And God, who knows what is in the heart, gave his confirmation of them by giving the Holy Spirit to them, even as he did to us
9 ܘܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܦܪܫ ܒܝܢܝܢ ܘܠܗܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܕܟܝ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܠܒܘܬܗܘܢ
And he made no distinction between them and us, because he purified their hearts through faith
10 ܘܗܫܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܡܢܤܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܬܤܝܡܘܢ ܢܝܪܐ ܥܠ ܨܘܪܝܗܘܢ ܕܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܦܠܐ ܐܒܗܬܢ ܐܦܠܐ ܚܢܢ ܐܫܟܚܢ ܠܡܛܥܢ
?And now, why do you so test God, by putting a yoke on the necks of the disciples, which neither our forefathers nor we were able bear
11 ܐܠܐ ܒܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢܢ ܕܢܚܐ ܐܟܘܬܗܘܢ
But we believe that through the grace of our Lord Jesus the Messiah we are to have Life* as well as them
12 ܘܫܬܩܘ ܟܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܘܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܠܒܪܢܒܐ ܕܡܫܬܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܓܒܪܘܬܐ ܒܥܡܡܐ
And the entire congregation was quiet, and listened to Paul and BarNabas, who told about the signs and wonders God had done thru their hands among the pagans 
13 ܘܒܬܪ ܕܫܬܩܘ ܩܡ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܐܡܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܫܘܡܥܘܢܝ
And after they finished, James stood up and said: Men, brothers, listen to me
14 ܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܫܬܥܝ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܫܪܝ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܡܓܒܐ ܡܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܥܡܐ ܠܫܡܗ
Simon has told you how God began to chose a people for his name from among the pagans
15 ܘܠܗܕܐ ܫܠܡܢ ܡܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܟܬܝܒ
:And with this the words of the prophets agree, as it is written
16 ܕܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܗܦܘܟ ܘܐܩܝܡ ܡܫܟܢܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܢܦܠ ܘܐܒܢܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܢܦܠ ܡܢܗ ܘܐܩܝܡܝܘܗܝ
:After that I will return, and rebuild the fallen House of David; and I will rebuild it from ruins, and restore it 
17 ܐܝܟ ܕܢܒܥܘܢ ܫܪܟܗܘܢ ܕܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܠܡܪܝܐ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܩܪܝ ܫܡܝ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ
so that the rest of mankind may look for the Lord, and all the pagans on whom my name is invoked; says the Lord, who does these things
18 ܝܕܝܥܝܢ ܡܢ ܥܠܡ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ
Known from of old, are the works of God
19 ܡܛܠ ܗܕܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܫܚܩܝܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܡܬܦܢܝܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ
Therefore I say to you, let them not trouble those from among the pagans who have turned unto God
20 ܐܠܐ ܢܫܬܠܚ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܦܪܝܩܝܢ ܡܢ ܛܡܐܘܬܐ ܕܕܒܝܚܐ ܘܡܢ ܙܢܝܘܬܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܚܢܝܩܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܡܐ
But let us send word to them, that they avoid the defilement from sacrifice to idols, and from fornication, and from what is strangled, and from blood 
21 ܡܘܫܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܢ ܕܪܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܒܟܠ ܡܕܝܢܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܟܪܘܙܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܒܟܠ ܫܒܝܢ ܩܪܝܢ ܠܗ
For Moses has always had his preachers in every town, who read him in the synagogues every Sabbath
22 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܥܡ ܟܠܗ ܥܕܬܐ ܓܒܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܘܫܕܪܘ ܠܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ ܥܡ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܒܪܢܒܐ ܠܝܗܘܕܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܒܪ ܫܒܐ ܘܠܫܝܠܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܪܫܐ ܗܘܘ ܒܗܘܢ ܒܐܚܐ
Then the Apostles and Elders, with the entire church, chose delegates, and sent them to Antioch, with Paul and BarNabas; namely, Jude, who was called Barsabas, and Silas, men who were leaders among the brothers
23 ܘܟܬܒܘ ܐܓܪܬܐ ܒܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܐܚܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ ܘܒܤܘܪܝܐ ܘܒܩܝܠܝܩܝܐ ܐܚܐ ܕܡܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܫܠܡ
And they so wrote a letter to send by them: The Apostles and Elders and brothers, to those in Antioch, and in Syria, and in Cilicia, brothers who are from the pagans, greetings:
24 ܫܡܝܥ ܠܢ ܕܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢܢ ܢܦܩܘ ܘܕܠܚܟܘܢ ܒܡܠܐ ܘܐܗܦܟܘ ܢܦܫܬܟܘܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܬܗܘܘܢ ܓܙܪܝܢ ܘܢܛܪܝܢ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܚܢܢ ܠܐ ܦܩܕܢ ܐܢܘܢ
We have heard, that some from among us have gone out and disturbed you with words, and have upset your minds, by saying, That you must be circumcised and keep the Law; things which we have never commanded them
25 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܚܫܒܢ ܟܠܢ ܟܕ ܟܢܝܫܝܢܢ ܘܓܒܝܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܘܫܕܪܢ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܥܡ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܒܪܢܒܐ ܚܒܝܒܝܢ
Therefore we have all considered it when gathered, and chosen to send men to you, with our beloved Paul and BarNabas
26 ܐܢܫܐ ܕܐܫܠܡܘ ܢܦܫܬܗܘܢ ܚܠܦ ܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
men who have given up their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus the Messiah
27 ܘܫܕܪܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܝܗܘܕܐ ܘܠܫܝܠܐ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܢܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ
And we have sent with them Jude and Silas, so they may tell you the same things by word of mouth
28 ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܨܒܝܢܐ ܠܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܐܦ ܠܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܬܬܤܝܡ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܝܘܩܪܐ ܝܬܝܪܐ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܐܠܨܢ
:For it was the will of the Holy Spirit, and of us, to lay upon you no additional burden, besides these necessary things
29 ܕܬܬܪܚܩܘܢ ܡܢ ܕܕܒܝܚܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܡܐ ܘܡܢ ܚܢܝܩܐ ܘܡܢ ܙܢܝܘܬܐ ܕܟܕ ܬܛܪܘܢ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܫܦܝܪ ܬܗܘܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܫܪܝܪܝܢ ܒܡܪܢ
that you avoid sacrifice to idols, and from blood, and from what is strangled, and from fornication And when you keep yourselves from these, you will do well Stay steadfast in the Lord
30 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܫܬܠܚܘ ܐܬܘ ܠܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ ܘܟܢܫܘ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܘܝܗܒܘ ܐܓܪܬܐ
And those who were sent, came to Antioch, and gathered together the people, and delivered the letter
31 ܘܟܕ ܩܪܘ ܚܕܝܘ ܘܐܬܒܝܐܘ
And when they had read it, they rejoiced and were encouraged
32 ܘܒܡܠܬܐ ܥܬܝܪܬܐ ܚܝܠܘ ܠܐܚܐ ܘܩܝܡܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܒܝܬ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܘܫܝܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܦ ܗܢܘܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܗܘܘ
And Jude and Silas, being themselves prophets, confirmed them with gracious words and strengthened the brothers
33 ܘܟܕ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܙܒܢܐ ܫܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܚܐ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܠܘܬ ܫܠܝܚܐ
And after they had spent some time there, the brothers let them go in peace back to the Apostles
34 ܒܪܡ ܗܘܐ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܫܝܠܐ ܕܢܩܘܐ ܬܡܢ
But it was the wish of Silas to stay on there 
35 ܦܘܠܘܤ ܕܝܢ ܘܒܪܢܒܐ ܩܘܝܘ ܗܘܘ ܒܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ ܘܡܠܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܤܒܪܝܢ ܥܡ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
Paul and BarNabas, however, stayed on in Antioch, and there with many others they taught and proclaimed the word of God
36 ܘܒܬܪ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܐܡܪ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܠܒܪܢܒܐ ܢܬܦܢܐ ܘܢܤܥܘܪ ܠܐܚܐ ܕܒܟܠ ܡܕܝܢܐ ܕܐܟܪܙܢ ܒܗ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܢܚܙܐ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܝܕܝܢ
And days later, Paul said to BarNabas: Let us return, and visit the brothers in every town where we have preached the word of God, and let us see how they are doing
37 ܒܪܢܒܐ ܕܝܢ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܕܒܪ ܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܟܢܝ ܡܪܩܘܤ
And BarNabas wanted to take John, who was also named Mark
38 ܦܘܠܘܤ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܕܒܪܗ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܫܒܩ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܗܢܘܢ ܒܦܡܦܘܠܝܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܙܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ
But Paul was unwilling to take him with them because he had left them when they were in Pamphylia, and had not gone with them
39 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܚܪܝܢܐ ܦܪܫܘ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܚܕ ܘܒܪܢܒܐ ܕܒܪ ܠܡܪܩܘܤ ܘܪܕܘ ܒܝܡܐ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܩܘܦܪܘܤ
And due to this quarrel, they parted from each other, and BarNabas took Mark, and they sailed by sea and went to Cyprus
40 ܦܘܠܘܤ ܕܝܢ ܓܒܐ ܠܗ ܠܫܝܠܐ ܘܢܦܩ ܟܕ ܡܓܥܠ ܡܢ ܐܚܐ ܠܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
But Paul chose Silas to accompany him, and left, commended by the brothers to the grace of God 
41 ܘܪܕܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܤܘܪܝܐ ܘܒܩܝܠܝܩܝܐ ܘܡܩܝܡ ܥܕܬܐ
And he traveled through Syria, and through Cilicia, establishing churches

Chapter 16

1ܘܡܛܝ ܗܘܐ ܠܕܪܒܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܠܠܘܤܛܪܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܛܝܡܬܐܘܤ ܒܪܗ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܬܐ ܘܐܒܘܗܝ ܐܪܡܝܐ ܗܘܐ
And he came to the city Derbe, and to Lystra And there was a certain disciple there, whose name was Timothy, the son of a Jewess convert, but whose father was Aramean
2 ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܡܢ ܠܘܤܛܪܐ ܘܡܢ ܐܝܩܢܘܢ ܡܤܗܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ
And all the disciples of Lystra and Iconium spoke well about him
3 ܠܗܢܐ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܕܢܕܒܪܝܘܗܝ ܥܡܗ ܘܢܤܒ ܓܙܪܗ ܡܛܠ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܒܐܬܪܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܕܐܪܡܝܐ ܗܘܐ
Paul wanted to take him along with him, and he took him and had him circumcised, for the Jews who were in that region all knew that his father was Aramean
4 ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܡܟܪܙܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܠܦܝܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܢܛܪܝܢ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܟܬܒܘ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ
And as they went among the towns, they preached and taught them to observe those decrees that the Apostles and Elders in Jerusalem had written 
5 ܒܪܡ ܥܕܬܐ ܡܬܩܝܡܢ ܗܘܝ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܤܓܝܢ ܗܘܝ ܒܡܢܝܢܐ ܟܠܝܘܡ
And so the churches were established in the faith, and grew in number every day
6 ܗܠܟܘ ܕܝܢ ܒܦܪܘܓܝܐ ܘܒܓܠܛܝܐ ܐܬܪܘܬܐ ܘܟܠܬ ܐܢܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܡܠܠܘܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܐܤܝܐ
And they traveled through the regions of Phrygia and Galatia, and having been told by the Holy Spirit not to preach the word of God in Asia
7 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܠܡܘܤܝܐ ܐܬܪܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܠܒܝܬܘܢܝܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܦܤܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܪܘܚܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ
And when they came into the region of Mysia, they thought to cross from there into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them
8 ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩܘ ܡܢ ܡܘܤܝܐ ܢܚܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܛܪܘܐܤ ܐܬܪܐ
And when they left Mysia, they came down to the region of Troas
9 ܘܒܚܙܘܐ ܕܠܠܝܐ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܐܝܟ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܕܩܐܡ ܘܒܥܐ ܡܢܗ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܕܬܐ ܠܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܘܥܕܪܝܢܝ
And in a vision, there appeared to Paul one night, a man of Macedonia, who stood and appealed to him, saying: Come to Macedonia and help us
10 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܚܙܐ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܗܢܐ ܚܙܘܐ ܡܚܕܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܠܡܦܩ ܠܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܤܬܟܠܢ ܕܡܪܢ ܩܪܢ ܕܢܤܒܪ ܐܢܘܢ
And when Paul had seen this vision, we wanted to leave for Macedonia at once, for we were convinced that our Lord had called us to preach the Good News to them
11 ܘܪܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܛܪܘܐܤ ܘܬܪܨܢ ܠܤܡܬܪܩܐ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܢܐܦܘܠܝܤ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
And we sailed from Troas, and came straight to Samothrace, and from there, on the next day, we came to the city Neapolis
12 ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܕܗܝ ܗܝ ܪܫܐ ܕܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܘܐܝܬܝܗ ܩܘܠܘܢܝܐ ܗܘܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܗ ܒܗܕܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܝܕܝܥܐ
And from there to Philippi, which is the principal city of Macedonia, and is a [Roman] colony. And we stayed on in that city for a some days
13 ܘܢܦܩܢ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܫܒܬܐ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܢܗܪܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܬܡܢ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܝܬ ܨܠܘܬܐ ܘܟܕ ܝܬܒܢ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܥܡ ܢܫܐ ܕܟܢܝܫܢ ܗܘܝ ܬܡܢ
And on the Sabbath day, we went along the river outside the gates of the city, as this was a customary place of prayer there. And when we sat down, we spoke with the women gathered there
14 ܘܐܢܬܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܡܙܒܢܬ ܐܪܓܘܢܐ ܕܕܚܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܕܝܐ ܡܢ ܬܐܘܛܝܪܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܗܕܐ ܦܬܚ ܠܒܗ ܡܪܢ ܘܫܡܥܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܡܪ ܦܘܠܘܤ
And a certain devout woman, whose name was Lydia, from the town of Thyatira, sold purple-dye. Our Lord opened her heart, and she listened to what Paul spoke
15 ܘܥܡܕܬ ܗܘܬ ܗܝ ܘܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ ܘܒܥܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܢܢ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܕܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܬܟܝܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܬ ܒܡܪܢ ܬܘ ܫܪܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܒܝܬܝ ܘܤܓܝ ܐܠܨܬܢ
And she and her household were baptized And she invited us, saying: If you are truly convinced that I have come to believe in our Lord, come and stay in my house. And she strongly urged us to
16 ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܐܙܠܝܢܢ ܠܒܝܬ ܨܠܘܬܐ ܦܓܥܬ ܒܢ ܥܠܝܡܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܨܡܐ ܘܥܒܕܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܡܪܝܗ ܬܐܓܘܪܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ ܒܩܨܡܐ ܕܩܨܡܐ ܗܘܬ
And as we were going to the place of prayer, a certain maid happened to meet us, who had a spirit of premonition, and who made great profits for her masters by the premonitions which she had
17 ܘܐܬܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܬܪ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܒܬܪܢ ܘܩܥܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܪܝܡܐ ܘܡܤܒܪܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܚܝܐ
And she followed after Paul and us, shouting: These men are the servants of God the Highest, and they preach Good News to you of the Way of *Life
18 ܘܗܟܢܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܗܘܬ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܐܬܬܦܝܪ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܠܪܘܚܐ ܗܝ ܦܩܕ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܝ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܬܦܩܝܢ ܡܢܗ ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܢܦܩܬ
And she did this for many days And Paul lost his patience, and he said to that spirit: I command you, in the name of Jesus the Messiah, that you come out of her. And it came out that very moment
19 ܘܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܡܪܝܗ ܕܢܦܩ ܠܗ ܡܢܗ ܤܒܪܐ ܕܬܐܓܘܪܬܗܘܢ ܐܚܕܘܗܝ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܠܫܝܠܐ ܘܢܓܕܘ ܐܝܬܝܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܫܘܩܐ
And when her masters saw that the opportunity for them to profit from her had left, they grabbed Paul and Silas, and dragged them out to bring them to the market place
20 ܘܩܪܒܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐܤܛܪܛܓܐ ܘܠܪܫܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܕܠܚܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ
and set them before the magistrates and leaders of the city, and said: These men are causing a disturbance in our city, for they are Jews,
21 ܘܡܟܪܙܝܢ ܠܢ ܥܝܕܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܦܤ ܠܢ ܠܡܩܒܠܘ ܘܠܡܥܒܕ ܡܛܠ ܕܪܗܘܡܝܐ ܚܢܢ
and they preach to us practices which it is unlawful for us to accept and to practice, as we are Romans 
22 ܘܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܤܛܪܛܓܐ ܤܕܩܘ ܢܚܬܝܗܘܢ ܘܦܩܕܘ ܕܢܢܓܕܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ
And a large crowd joined in against them. Then the soldiers stripped them of their clothes, and ordered to them to be flogged
23 ܘܟܕ ܢܓܕܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܤܓܝ ܐܪܡܝܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܘܦܩܕܘ ܠܢܛܪ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܕܢܛܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܙܗܝܪܐܝܬ
And when they had given them many lashes, they threw them in the prison, and ordered the jailer of the prison to guard them carefully
24 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܩܒܠ ܗܢܐ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܐܥܠ ܚܒܫ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܒܝܬܐ ܓܘܝܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܘܐܤܪ ܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܒܤܕܐ
And he followed out his instructions, and threw them down into the inner recesses of the prison, and fastened their feet in the stocks
25 ܘܒܦܠܓܗ ܕܠܠܝܐ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܫܝܠܐ ܡܨܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܫܒܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܤܝܪܐ
And at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and glorifying God, and the other prisoners heard them
26 ܘܡܢ ܫܠܝܐ ܙܘܥܐ ܪܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܐܬܬܙܝܥ ܫܬܐܤܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܘܐܬܦܬܚܘ ܡܚܕܐ ܬܪܥܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܤܘܪܝܗܘܢ ܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܫܬܪܝܘ
And suddenly there was a great earthquake, and the foundations of the prison were shaken, and at once all the doors opened, and the bonds of all were undone
27 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܬܥܝܪ ܢܛܪ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܘܚܙܐ ܕܦܬܝܚܝܢ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܢܤܒ ܤܦܤܪܐ ܘܒܥܐ ܕܢܩܛܘܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܡܛܠ ܕܤܒܪ ܗܘܐ ܕܥܪܩܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܤܝܪܐ
And when the jailer of the prison awoke, and saw that the doors of the prison were wide open, he drew a sword intending to kill himself, for he thought the prisoners had escaped
28 ܘܩܪܝܗܝ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܬܥܒܕ ܠܢܦܫܟ ܡܕܡ ܕܒܝܫ ܡܛܠ ܕܟܠܢ ܗܪܟܐ ܚܢܢ
But Paul called out to him in a loud voice, and said: Do not harm yourself, for we are all here
29 ܘܐܢܗܪ ܠܗ ܫܪܓܐ ܘܫܘܪ ܘܥܠ ܟܕ ܪܐܬ ܘܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܕܫܝܠܐ
And he lit a lamp for himself, and bolted in, shaking, and fell at the feet of Paul and Silas 
30 ܘܐܦܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܒܪ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܪܝ ܡܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܠܝ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܚܐ
?And he brought them out, and said to them: My lords, what must I do so I may have *Life
31 ܘܗܢܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܗܝܡܢ ܒܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܬܚܐ ܐܢܬ ܘܒܝܬܟ
And they said to him: Believe in the name of our Lord Jesus the Messiah, and you will have Life*, and yours at home, too
32 ܘܡܠܠܘ ܥܡܗ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܥܡ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ
And they preached the word of the Lord to him, and to all who were of his home
33 ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܒܗ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܕܒܪ ܐܤܚܝ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢ ܢܓܕܗܘܢ ܘܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܥܡܕ ܗܘ ܘܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ
And at that same time of the night, he took and washed the wounds from their lashings, and he was baptized then, along with all in his home
34 ܘܕܒܪ ܐܤܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܘܤܡ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܬܘܪܐ ܘܪܘܙ ܗܘܐ ܗܘ ܘܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And taking them, he brought them to his house, and set out a table for them, and he and all in his home rejoiced with this faith in God
35 ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܨܦܪܐ ܫܕܪܘ ܐܤܛܪܛܓܐ ܠܫܩܠܝ ܫܒܛܐ ܕܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܪܒ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܫܪܝ ܠܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ
And when it was morning, the soldiers sent officers to tell the warden of the prison: Release those men 
36 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܪܒ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܥܠ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܕܫܕܪܘ ܐܤܛܪܛܓܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܬܫܬܪܘܢ ܘܗܫܐ ܦܘܩܘ ܙܠܘ ܒܫܠܡܐ
And when the jailer of the prison heard, he went in, and told Paul the same - that the magistrates have sent word for you be released And you can go now, and be on your way in peace
37 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܕܠܐ ܤܟܠܘ ܢܓܕܘܢ ܠܥܝܢ ܥܠܡܐ ܟܠܗ ܠܐܢܫܐ ܪܗܘܡܝܐ ܘܐܪܡܝܘܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܘܗܫܐ ܡܛܫܝܐܝܬ ܡܦܩܝܢ ܠܢ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܠܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܢܐܬܘܢ ܢܦܩܘܢܢ
But Paul said to him: They have flogged us, innocent and Roman men, in public, and have thrown us in prison, and now quietly let us out? No, truly; let them come and take us out themselves
38 ܘܐܙܠܘ ܫܩܠܝ ܫܒܛܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܐܤܛܪܛܓܐ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܕܪܗܘܡܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܚܠܘ
And the officers went and told the magistrates the words which were spoken to them, and when they heard they were Romans, they were horrified
39 ܘܐܬܘ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܒܥܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܢܦܩܘܢ ܘܢܫܢܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
.and came to them, and pleaded with them for them to come out, and for them to leave the city
40 ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩܘ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܥܠܘ ܠܘܬ ܠܘܕܝܐ ܘܚܙܘ ܬܡܢ ܠܐܚܐ ܘܒܝܐܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܢܦܩܘ
And when they came out from the prison, they went to the house of Lydia where they saw the brothers and encouraged them, and then left

Chapter 17

1 ܘܥܒܪܘ ܥܠ ܐܡܦܝܦܘܠܝܤ ܘܐܦܠܘܢܝܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܬܤܠܘܢܝܩܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ
And they passed through the cities of Amphipolis and Apollonia, and came to Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews
2 ܘܥܠ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܡܥܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܫܒܐ ܬܠܬ ܡܠܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܟܬܒܐ
And Paul, as was his custom, went in to join them, and for three Sabbaths he preached to them from the scriptures
3 ܟܕ ܡܦܫܩ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܚܘܐ ܕܥܬܝܕ ܗܘܐ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܢܚܫ ܘܕܢܩܘܡ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܗܘܝܘ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܡܤܒܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ
explaining and proving that the Messiah was to suffer, and rise from the dead, and that this Jesus of whom I preach to you is the Messiah
4 ܘܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܘܢܩܦܘ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܠܫܝܠܐ ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܝܘܢܝܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܚܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܦ ܢܫܐ ܝܕܝܥܬܐ ܠܐ ܙܥܘܪܝܢ
And some of them believed, and joined Paul and Silas; and a great many of those were Greeks who revered God and also not just a few prominent women
5 ܘܚܤܡܘ ܗܘܘ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܐܩܦܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܡܢ ܫܘܩܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܥܒܕܘ ܐܟܠܘܤ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܕܠܚܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܘܩܡܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܠ ܒܝܬܗ ܕܐܝܤܘܢ ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܢܦܩܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܘܢܫܠܡܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐܟܠܘܤ
But the Jews were resentful, and enlisted bad men from the market place of the city, and stirred up a large crowd, and had the city alarmed, and they made for Jason's house, looking to drag them off and hand them over to the crowd
6 ܘܟܕ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܬܡܢ ܓܪܘܗܝ ܗܘܘ ܠܐܝܤܘܢ ܘܠܐܚܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܘܐܝܬܝܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܪܫܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܟܕ ܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܠܟܠܗ ܐܪܥܐ ܕܠܚܘ ܘܗܐ ܬܘܒ ܠܗܪܟܐ ܐܬܘ
And when they did not find them there, they dragged off Jason and the brothers who were there to bring them before the authorities of the city, shouting out: These are those who have terrorized the entire land, and behold, they have come here as well
7 ܘܡܩܒܠܢܗܘܢ ܗܢܘ ܐܝܤܘܢ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܦܘܩܕܢܘܗܝ ܕܩܤܪ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ
and this Jason has welcomed them: and they all disregard the edicts of Caesar, saying that there is another emperor, a one Jesus
8 ܐܬܕܠܚܘ ܕܝܢ ܪܫܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܗܠܝܢ
And the authorities of the city and all the people, were upset when they heard these things
9 ܘܢܤܒܘ ܥܪܒܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܤܘܢ ܘܐܦ ܡܢ ܐܚܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ
And they took bail from Jason, and from the brothers as well, and then released them
10 ܐܚܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܒܗ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܫܪܘ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܠܫܝܠܐ ܠܒܪܘܐܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܠܬܡܢ ܥܐܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ
And on that very night the brothers immediately sent Paul and Silas away to the city of Berea. And upon arriving, they went into the synagogue of the Jews
11 ܚܐܪܝܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܗܢܘܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܬܡܢ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܒܬܤܠܘܢܝܩܐ ܘܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܟܠܝܘܡ ܚܕܝܐܝܬ ܟܕ ܡܦܪܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܐܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܝܢ
For the Jews there were more open-minded than the Jews of Thessalonica, and they welcomed the word from them and studied every day from the scriptures whether these things were so
12 ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܘܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܡܢ ܝܘܢܝܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܢܫܐ ܝܕܝܥܬܐ
And many of them believed, and so did many men and notable women of the Greeks
13 ܘܟܕ ܝܕܥܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܡܢ ܬܤܠܘܢܝܩܐ ܕܡܠܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܟܪܙܬ ܡܢ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܒܒܪܘܐܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܬܘ ܐܦ ܠܬܡܢ ܘܠܐ ܫܠܝܘ ܠܡܙܥܘ ܘܠܡܕܠܚܘ ܠܐܢܫܘܬܐ
And when the Jews of Thessalonica heard that the word of God was being preached by Paul in the city of Berea, they came there also, and they did not stop to make trouble and stir up the people
14 ܘܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܫܪܐܘܗܝ ܐܚܐ ܕܢܚܘܬ ܠܗ ܠܝܡܐ ܘܩܘܝ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܗܝ ܫܝܠܐ ܘܛܝܡܬܐܘܤ
And the brothers sent Paul away, so he might go as far as the coast But Silas and Timothy stayed on in that city
15 ܘܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܬܠܘܝܘ ܠܗ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܐܬܘ ܥܡܗ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܐܬܢܘܤ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩܝܢ ܡܢ ܨܐܕܘܗܝ ܩܒܠܘ ܡܢܗ ܐܓܪܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܫܝܠܐ ܘܛܝܡܬܐܘܤ ܕܒܥܓܠ ܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܠܘܬܗ
And those who escorted Paul went with him to the city of Athens. And when they parted from him, they received an letter from him for Silas and Timothy to rejoin him without delay
16 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܟܕ ܡܩܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܐܬܢܘܤ ܡܬܡܪܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܒܪܘܚܗ ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܟܠܗ ܡܠܝܐ ܦܬܟܪܐ
And while Paul was waiting in Athens, he was saddened in spirit, for he saw that the entire city was full of idols
17 ܘܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܥܡ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܥܡ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܚܠܝܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܫܘܩܐ ܥܡ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܤܬܩܒܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܝܘܡ
And in the synagogue he spoke with the Jews, and with those that revered God, and in the market place every day with those who gathered there
18 ܘܐܦ ܦܝܠܤܘܦܐ ܕܡܢ ܝܘܠܦܢܗ ܕܐܦܝܩܘܪܤ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܢ ܤܛܘܐܝܩܘ ܕܪܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗ ܘܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܐ ܨܒܐ ܗܢܐ ܡܠܩܛ ܡܠܐ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܢܘܟܪܝܐ ܡܟܪܙ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܝܫܘܥ ܘܠܩܝܡܬܗ ܡܟܪܙ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ
And also philosophers of the school of Epicurus, and others, who were called Stoics, argued with him. And one after another of them said: What can this babbler mean? Others said: He preaches outlandish gods, because he preached to them Jesus and his resurrection
19 ܘܐܚܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܠܒܝܬ ܕܝܢܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܐܪܝܘܤ ܦܓܘܤ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܫܟܚܝܢܢ ܠܡܕܥ ܡܢܘ ܗܢܐ ܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܕܡܟܪܙ ܐܢܬ
 And they arrested him and brought him to the court house called Areopagus, and said to him: May we know what is this new teaching which you preach ? 
20 ܡܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܢܘܟܪܝܬܐ ܙܪܥ ܐܢܬ ܒܡܫܡܥܬܢ ܘܨܒܝܢܢ ܠܡܕܥ ܡܢܐ ܐܢܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ
For you bring unfamiliar terms to our ears, and we want to know what they are
21 ܐܬܢܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܝܢ ܠܬܡܢ ܢܘܟܪܝܐ ܥܠ ܡܕܡ ܐܚܪܝܢ ܠܐ ܒܛܝܠ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܘܠܡܫܡܥ ܡܕܡ ܚܕܬ
For all the Athenians and the foreigners who were there cared for little else other than to discuss or listen to something new
22 ܘܟܕ ܩܡ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܒܐܪܝܘܤ ܦܓܘܤ ܐܡܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܬܢܝܐ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܒܟܠܗܝܢ ܝܬܝܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܕܚܠܬ ܫܐܕܐ
And as Paul stood in the Areopagus, he said: Men of Athens, I notice that in every thing you are very superstitious
23 ܟܕ ܓܝܪ ܡܬܟܪܟ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܚܙܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܒܝܬ ܕܚܠܬܟܘܢ ܐܫܟܚܬ ܥܠܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܠܝܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܓܢܝܙܐ ܗܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܟܕ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܚܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ ܠܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܤܒܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ
For as I was walking by, and viewed the temples of your worship, I found an altar on which was inscribed, To The Unknown God. He, therefore, whom you worship, yet do not realize, is the very same I preach to you
24 ܐܠܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܥܒܕ ܥܠܡܐ ܘܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܘܗܘܝܘ ܡܪܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܘܕܐܪܥܐ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܝܕܝܐ ܠܐ ܫܪܐ
For the God who made the world and all that is in it, and who is Lord of heaven and of earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands
25 ܘܠܐ ܡܫܬܡܫ ܡܢ ܐܝܕܝ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܘܥܠ ܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܤܢܝܩ ܡܛܠ ܕܗܘ ܝܗܒ ܠܟܠܢܫ ܚܝܐ ܘܢܦܫܐ
Nor is he dependant on human hands, neither has he any wants; for he it is gives Life and breath to every man
26 ܘܡܢ ܚܕ ܕܡ ܥܒܕ ܥܠܡܐ ܟܠܗ ܕܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܥܡܪܝܢ ܥܠ ܐܦܝ ܐܪܥܐ ܟܠܗ ܘܦܪܫ ܙܒܢܐ ܒܦܘܩܕܢܗ ܘܤܡ ܬܚܘܡܐ ܕܥܘܡܪܐ ܕܒܢܝܢܫܐ
And of one blood has he made the whole world of men, to dwell on the face of all the earth, and he has set his limits to their epochs, and has fixed the boundaries for the regions of men
27 ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܒܥܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܡܥܩܒܝܢ ܘܡܢ ܒܪܝܬܗ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܦ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܪܚܝܩ ܡܢ ܟܠ ܡܢܢ
that they might search for and seek God, and find him through his creations, for he is not far from any one of us:
28 ܒܗ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܚܝܝܢܢ ܘܡܬܬܙܝܥܝܢܢ ܘܐܝܬܝܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܦ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܚܟܝܡܐ ܕܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܕܡܢܗ ܗܘ ܛܘܗܡܢ
for in him we live, and move, and have our being, as one of your own wise men has said: We are all his children 
29 ܐܢܫܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܛܘܗܡܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܚܝܒܝܢܢ ܠܡܤܒܪ ܕܠܕܗܒܐ ܐܘ ܠܤܐܡܐ ܐܘ ܠܟܐܦܐ ܕܓܠܝܦܐ ܒܐܘܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܒܝܕܥܬܐ ܕܒܪܢܫܐ ܕܡܝܐ ܐܠܗܘܬܐ
Since we are the children of God, we ought not to think that the Deity has the likeness of gold, or silver, or stone that has been carved and designed by men 
30 ܙܒܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܛܥܝܘܬܐ ܐܥܒܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܙܒܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܡܦܩܕ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܒܟܠ ܕܘܟܐ ܢܬܘܒ
And God has made the times of this mistake to pass away, and now he tells all men, that everyone, everywhere, should repent 
31 ܡܛܠ ܕܐܩܝܡ ܝܘܡܐ ܕܒܗ ܥܬܝܕ ܕܢܕܘܢ ܐܪܥܐ ܟܠܗ ܒܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܒܝܕ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܦܪܫ ܘܐܦܢܝ ܠܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܠܗܝܡܢܘܬܗ ܒܕܐܩܝܡܗ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ
For he has appointed a day, in which he will judge all the earth with righteousness, by the man whom he has chosen, he who turns every man to his faith, in that he raised him from the dead
32 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܩܝܡܬܐ ܕܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܡܝܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܙܒܢ ܐܚܪܝܢ ܫܡܥܝܢܢ ܠܟ ܥܠ ܗܕܐ
And when they heard of the resurrection from the dead, some of them mocked, and others of them said: We will hear you on this matter at another time 
33 ܘܗܟܢܐ ܢܦܩ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܡܢ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ
And so Paul left from among them
34 ܘܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܢܩܦܘܗܝ ܘܗܝܡܢܘ ܚܕ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢܘܤܝܘܤ ܡܢ ܕܝܢܐ ܕܐܪܝܘܤ ܦܓܘܤ ܘܐܢܬܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܕܡܪܝܤ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ
And some of those followed him, and believed; one of them was Dionysius from among the judges of Areopagus, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them

Chapter 18

1 ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܡܢ ܐܬܢܘܤ ܐܬܐ ܠܗ ܠܩܘܪܢܬܘܤ
And after Paul left from Athens, he went to Corinth
2 ܘܐܫܟܚ ܬܡܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܩܠܘܤ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܦܢܛܘܤ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܒܗ ܒܗܘ ܙܒܢܐ ܐܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܐܝܛܠܝܐ ܗܘ ܘܦܪܝܤܩܠܐ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܡܛܠ ܕܦܩܕ ܗܘܐ ܩܠܘܕܝܘܤ ܩܤܪ ܕܢܦܩܘܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܡܢ ܪܗܘܡܐ ܘܐܬܩܪܒ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ
And there he met a man, a Jew, whose name was Aquila, who was from the region of Pontus, and he and his wife Priscilla had recently arrived from the country of Italy, because Claudius Caesar had decreed that all Jews be expelled from Rome. And he went to visit them
3 ܘܡܛܠ ܕܒܪ ܐܘܡܢܘܬܗܘܢ ܗܘܐ ܫܪܐ ܠܗ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܦܠܚ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܒܐܘܡܢܘܬܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܘܠܪܐ ܗܘܘ
and, since he was of their trade, he stayed and worked with them, for they were tent makers by trade
4 ܘܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܒܟܠ ܫܒܐ ܘܡܦܝܤ ܗܘܐ ܠܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܠܚܢܦܐ
And he spoke in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and pagans
5 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܫܝܠܐ ܘܛܝܡܬܐܘܤ ܐܠܝܨ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܗܘ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܡܛܠ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܩܘܒܠܗ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܡܓܕܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܕ ܡܤܗܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܗܘܝܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ
And when Silas and Timothy came from Macedonia, Paul was hindered from speaking, because the Jews opposed him and cursed as he gave evidence to them that Jesus is the Messiah
6 ܘܢܦܨ ܡܐܢܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܗܫܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܟܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܙܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܝ ܠܘܬ ܥܡܡܐ
And he shook his clothes, and said to them: From here on I am clean [in conscience], I will take myself to the pagans
7 ܘܢܦܩ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܘܥܠ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܛܛܘܤ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܕܚܠ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܝܬܗ ܢܩܝܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ
And he went away, and entered into the house of a certain man named Titus, a devout one, and whose household had joined the synagogue
8 ܘܟܪܝܤܦܘܤ ܪܒ ܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܗܝܡܢ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܪܢ ܗܘ ܘܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܩܘܪܢܬܝܐ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܒܐܠܗܐ ܘܥܡܕܝܢ
And Crispus, the head of the synagogue, believed in our Lord, together with all his household And many Corinthians listened and believed in God, and were baptized
9 ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠ ܐܠܐ ܡܠܠ ܘܠܐ ܬܫܬܘܩ
:And the Lord said to Paul in a vision: Do not be afraid, but speak and do be not silent
10 ܡܛܠ ܕܐܢܐ ܥܡܟ ܐܢܐ ܘܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܗܪܘܬܟ ܘܥܡܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܗܕܐ
for I am with you, and no one can harm you, and I have many people in this city
11 ܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܫܢܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܘܝܪܚܐ ܫܬܐ ܒܩܘܪܢܬܘܤ ܘܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
 And he so stayed in Corinth a year and six months, and taught them the word of God
12 ܘܟܕ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܓܐܠܝܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܦܛܘܤ ܕܐܟܐܝܐ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܥܠ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܐܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܩܕܡ ܒܝܡ
And when Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews gathered together against Paul; and they brought him before the tribunal
13 ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܗܢܐ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܡܦܝܤ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܕܚܠܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ
.saying: This man is persuading the people to worship God contrary to the Law
14 ܘܟܕ ܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܕܢܦܬܚ ܦܘܡܗ ܘܢܡܠܠ ܐܡܪ ܓܐܠܝܘܢ ܠܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܠܘ ܥܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܒܝܫ ܐܘ ܕܢܟܝܠ ܐܘ ܕܤܢܐ ܡܩܛܪܓܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܐܘ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܒܘܠܝܬܐ ܡܩܒܠ ܗܘܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ
And before Paul could open his mouth and speak, Gallio said to the Jews: If your accusation, Oh Jews, was about anything criminal, or any fraud, or misdemeanors, I would listen to you accordingly
15 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܙܛܡܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܥܠ ܡܠܬܐ ܘܥܠ ܫܡܗܐ ܘܥܠ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܝܢܬܟܘܢ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܗܘܐ ܕܝܢܐ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܨܒܘܬܐ
But if what is in question is about words and names, and about your own law, you must deal with it yourselves, for I have no intention to be a judge of such matters
16 ܘܛܪܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢ ܒܝܡ ܕܝܠܗ
And he sent them out from his court 
17 ܘܐܚܕܘ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܚܢܦܐ ܠܤܘܤܬܢܝܤ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܡܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܩܕܡ ܒܝܡ ܘܓܐܠܝܘܢ ܡܗܡܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܗܠܝܢ
And all the pagans turned on Sosthenes an Elder of the synagogue, and beat him in front of the courthouse And Gallio ignored these things
18 ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܬܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܝܗܒ ܫܠܡܐ ܠܐܚܐ ܘܪܕܐ ܒܝܡܐ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܠܤܘܪܝܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܥܡܗ ܦܪܝܤܩܠܐ ܘܐܩܠܘܤ ܟܕ ܤܦܪ ܪܫܗ ܒܩܢܟܪܐܤ ܡܛܠ ܕܢܕܪܐ ܢܕܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ
And after Paul had stayed there many days, he took leave of the brothers, and left by sea to go to Syria And with him went Priscilla and Aquila, and when at Cenchrea he had his hair cut off for a vow he had made
19 ܘܡܛܝܘ ܠܐܦܤܘܤ ܘܥܠ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ
And they came to Ephesus, and Paul entered the synagogue, and debated with the Jews
20 ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗ ܕܢܓܪ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܐܬܛܦܝܤ
And they asked him to stay longer with them, but he could not be persuaded
21 ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܕܘܠܐ ܠܝ ܐܡܝܢܐܝܬ ܕܥܐܕܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܐܥܒܕܝܘܗܝ ܘܐܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܢܨܒܐ ܐܦܢܐ ܬܘܒ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܘܠܐܩܠܘܤ ܘܠܦܪܝܤܩܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܐܦܤܘܤ
For he said: I really must observe the upcoming feast in Jerusalem But, God willing, I will come again to visit you
22 ܘܗܘ ܪܕܐ ܒܝܡܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܩܤܪܝܐ ܘܤܠܩ ܘܫܐܠ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܕܒܢܝ ܥܕܬܐ ܘܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܠܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ
And he parted from Aquila and Priscilla at Ephesus, and he sailed by sea and came to Caesarea And he went up and greeted the church members, and went on to Antioch
23 ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܝܕܝܥܐ ܢܦܩ ܘܐܬܟܪܟ ܒܬܪ ܒܬܪ ܒܐܬܪܐ ܕܓܠܛܝܐ ܘܕܦܪܘܓܝܐ ܟܕ ܡܩܝܡ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ
And after he had been there for some time, he departed, and traveled around in the area of Phrygia and Galatia, encouraging all the followers
24 ܘܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܦܠܘ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܛܘܗܡܗ ܡܢ ܐܠܟܤܢܕܪܝܐ ܘܪܕܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܘܡܕܩ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܐܦܤܘܤ
And a certain man named Apollos came to Ephesus, a native Jew of Alexandria, who was eloquent and well schooled in the scriptures
25 ܗܢܐ ܡܬܠܡܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܘܪܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܪܬܚ ܗܘܐ ܒܪܘܚ ܘܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܠܦ ܡܠܝܐܝܬ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܟܕ ܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ
He had been given instruction in the ways of the Lord, and was earnest in spirit, and he preached and accurately taught about Jesus, although he had known nothing beyond the baptism of John
26 ܘܫܪܝ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘܗܝ ܐܩܠܘܤ ܘܦܪܝܤܩܠܐ ܐܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܠܒܝܬܗܘܢ ܘܡܠܝܐܝܬ ܚܘܝܘܗܝ ܐܘܪܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ
And when Aquila and Priscilla heard him speak boldly in the synagogue, they took him to their house, and instructed him further in the Way of the Lord
27 ܘܟܕ ܨܒܐ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܠܐܟܐܝܐ ܚܦܛܘܗܝ ܐܚܐ ܘܟܬܒܘ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܢܩܒܠܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠ ܥܕܪ ܤܓܝ ܒܝܕ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ
And while he was thinking of going to Achaia, the brothers encouraged him, and wrote to the disciples to welcome him And going, he greatly assisted through grace all those that believed
28 ܬܩܝܦܐܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܕܪܫ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܩܕܡ ܟܢܫܐ ܟܕ ܡܚܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܟܬܒܐ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܘ
For he argued forcefully against the Jews in public, and demonstrated from the scriptures, about Jesus, that he is the Messiah

Chapter 19

1 ܘܟܕ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܐܦܠܘ ܒܩܘܪܢܬܘܤ ܐܬܟܪܟ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܒܐܬܪܘܬܐ ܥܠܝܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܐܦܤܘܤ ܘܡܫܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܫܟܚ ܬܡܢ
And while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul traveled through the northern countries to Ephesus. And he questioned the disciples whom he found there
2 ܕܐܢ ܩܒܠܬܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܡܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܬܘܢ ܥܢܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܘܐܦܠܐ ܐܢ ܐܝܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܫܡܝܥ ܠܢ
Have you received the Holy Spirit since you were converted? They answered and said to him: We have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit
3 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܒܡܢܐ ܥܡܕܬܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܒܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܗ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ
He said to them: Into what then were you baptized? They said: Into the baptism of John
4 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܥܡܕ ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܠܥܡܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܗܝܡܢܘܢ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܒܬܪܗ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
Paul said to them: John baptized the people with the baptism of repentance, while he told them to believe in him who was to come after him, that is, in Jesus the Messiah
5 ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܫܡܥܘ ܥܡܕܘ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
And when they heard these things, they were baptized in the name of our Lord Jesus the Messiah
6 ܘܤܡ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܐ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܐܬܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܠܫܢ ܠܫܢ ܘܡܬܢܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ
And Paul laid his hands on them, and the Holy Spirit came down on them, and they spoke in various tongues, and prophesied
7 ܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܬܪܥܤܪ
And the people were twelve in all
8 ܘܥܠ ܗܘܐ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܝܪܚܐ ܬܠܬܐ ܘܡܦܝܤ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And Paul entered into the synagogue, and for three months spoke out boldly and persuasively about the Realm of God 
9 ܘܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܬܩܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܬܚܪܝܢ ܘܡܨܚܝܢ ܠܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܩܕܡ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܪܚܩ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܦܪܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܟܠܝܘܡ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܒܐܤܟܘܠܐ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܛܘܪܢܘܤ
And some of them were stubborn, and argumentative, and attacked the Way of God in front of the congregation of the people. Then Paul withdrew himself, and took the disciples away from them And he had discussions with them daily in the school of a man named Tyrannus
10 ܘܗܕܐ ܗܘܬ ܫܢܝܢ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܐܤܝܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܐܪܡܝܐ
And this went on for two years, until all who lived in Asia Minor, both Jews and Greeks, had heard the word of the Lord
11 ܘܚܝܠܐ ܪܘܪܒܐ ܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܕܦܘܠܘܤ
:And through the hand of Paul, God performed very remarkable miracles
12 ܗܟܢܐ ܕܐܦ ܡܢ ܢܚܬܐ ܕܥܠ ܓܘܫܡܗ ܤܘܕܪܐ ܐܘ ܪܘܩܥܐ ܡܝܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܤܝܡܝܢ ܥܠ ܟܪܝܗܐ ܘܦܪܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܟܘܪܗܢܐ ܘܐܦ ܫܐܕܐ ܢܦܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ
so that, from the clothes on his body, cloths and shirts were taken and laid upon the sick, and the illnesses left them, and the impure spirits also came out
13 ܨܒܘ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܫܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܬܟܪܟܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܘܡܝܢ ܥܠ ܫܐܕܐ ܕܢܘܡܘܢ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܠ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܘܡܝܢܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܡܟܪܙ ܦܘܠܘܤ
But some itinerant Jewish exorcists were inclined to exorcise in the name of our Lord Jesus to those who had impure spirits, by saying: We command you, in the name of that Jesus whom Paul gives Good News of 
14 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܫܒܥܐ ܒܢܘܗܝ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܤܩܘܐ ܕܥܒܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܗܕܐ
And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and head of the priests, who did this
15 ܘܥܢܐ ܫܐܕܐ ܗܘ ܒܝܫܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܬܘܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܘܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
?And the impure spirit answered and said to them: I know well of Jesus, and I know Paul, but as for you, who are you
16 ܘܫܘܪ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܘܐܬܚܝܠ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܫܦܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܟܕ ܫܠܝܚܝܢ ܘܦܥܝܥܝܢ ܥܪܩܘ ܡܢ ܒܝܬܐ ܗܘ
And the man in whom the impure spirit was jumped them, and overpowered them both, and threw them down, and they fled out of the house naked and mauled
17ܘܗܕܐ ܐܬܝܕܥܬ ܗܘܬ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܐܪܡܝܐ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܐܦܤܘܤ ܘܢܦܠܬ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܥܠ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܡܬܪܡܪܡ ܗܘܐ ܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
And this became known to all the Jews and Greeks, who lived in Ephesus And this greatly impressed all of them, and the name of our Lord Jesus the Messiah was held in great honor
18 ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܐܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܫܬܥܝܢ ܤܟܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܡܘܕܝܢ ܒܡܕܡ ܕܥܒܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ
And many of them that believed, came forward and admitted their faults, and confessed to what they had done 
19 ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܚܪܫܐ ܟܢܫܘ ܟܬܒܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܝܬܝܘ ܐܘܩܕܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܩܕܡ ܟܠܢܫ ܘܚܫܒܘ ܕܡܝܗܘܢ ܘܤܠܩ ܟܤܦܐ ܪܒܘܬܐ ܚܡܫ
And also many of magic collected their books and brought them to burn publicly and they calculated the value of them to be fifty thousand silver pieces
20 ܘܗܟܢܐ ܒܚܝܠܐ ܪܒܐ ܬܩܦܐ ܗܘܬ ܘܤܓܝܐ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And thus the faith of God was strengthened in great degree and spread
21 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܐܫܬܠܡ ܗܠܝܢ ܤܡ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܒܪܥܝܢܗ ܕܢܬܟܪܟ ܒܟܠܗ ܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܘܒܐܟܐܝܐ ܘܢܐܙܠ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܡܐ ܕܐܙܠܬ ܠܬܡܢ ܘܠܐ ܠܝ ܕܐܦ ܪܗܘܡܝ ܐܚܙܐ
And after these things had been done, Paul set his mind on making the rounds of all Macedonia and Achaia, and then go to Jerusalem And he said: After I have gone there, I must see Rome as well
22 ܘܫܕܪ ܗܘܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܫܡܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܠܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܠܛܝܡܬܐܘܤ ܘܠܐܪܤܛܘܤ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܩܘܝ ܙܒܢܐ ܒܐܤܝܐ
And he sent two of his helpers, Timothy and Erastus, into Macedonia, while he remained himself for a time in Asia Minor
23 ܗܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܗܘ ܙܒܢܐ ܫܓܘܫܝܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܥܠ ܐܘܪܚܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And during that time there was serious disturbance in connection to the Way of God
24 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܥܒܕ ܤܐܡܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܕܡܛܪܝܘܤ ܕܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ ܢܘܤܐ ܕܤܐܡܐ ܠܐܪܛܡܝܤ ܘܡܘܬܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܢܝ ܐܘܡܢܘܬܗ ܝܘܬܪܢܐ ܪܒܐ
For a certain silversmith was there, named Demetrius, who employed a large number of craftsmen making silver shrines for Diana
25 ܗܢܐ ܟܢܫ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܒܢܝ ܐܘܡܢܘܬܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܦܠܚܝܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܬܐܓܘܪܬܢ ܟܠܗ ܡܢ ܗܢܐ ܗܝ ܦܘܠܚܢܐ
He summoned all the craftsmen of his trade, and those who worked with them, and said to them: Gentlemen, you know that our prosperity all comes from this craft 
26 ܘܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܚܙܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܠܒܢܝ ܐܦܤܘܤ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܠܤܘܓܐܐ ܕܟܠܗ ܐܤܝܐ ܐܦܝܤ ܗܢܐ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܐܗܦܟ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܕܠܘ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܒܐܝܕܝ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܡܬܥܒܕܝܢ
And you also know and see, that not only the citizens of Ephesus, but also throughout all Asia Minor, this Paul has persuaded and turned away many by saying that these which are made by the hands of men are not gods
27 ܘܠܘ ܗܕܐ ܨܒܘܬܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܡܬܦܪܤܝܐ ܘܒܛܠܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܗܘ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܕܐܪܛܡܝܤ ܐܠܗܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܡܬܚܫܒ ܠܗ ܐܝܟ ܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܘܐܦ ܗܝ ܐܠܗܬܐ ܕܟܠܗ ܐܤܝܐ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܤܓܕܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܬܫܝܛܐ
And so not only is this craft discredited and threatened, but also the temple of the great goddess Diana will count as nothing and so, too, the goddess all Asia Minor and all the world venerates will disappear
28 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܚܡܬܐ ܘܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܪܒܐ ܗܝ ܐܪܛܡܝܤ ܕܐܦܤܝܐ
And when they heard these things they were overcome with outrage and they shouted out, and said: Great is Diana of the Ephesians
29 ܘܐܫܬܓܫܬ ܟܠܗ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܪܗܛܘ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܠܬܐܛܪܘܢ ܘܚܛܦܘ ܐܘܒܠܘ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܓܐܝܘܤ ܘܠܐܪܤܛܪܟܘܤ ܓܒܪܐ ܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܒܢܝ ܠܘܝܬܗ ܕܦܘܠܘܤ
And the whole city was in an uproar and they rushed together, and entered the arena And they caught, and dragged along with them, Gaius and Aristarchus, men of Macedonia, and companions of Paul
30 ܘܦܘܠܘܤ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܥܘܠ ܠܬܐܛܪܘܢ ܘܟܠܐܘܗܝ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ
And Paul wanted to go to the arena, but the disciples refused to let him
31 ܘܐܦ ܪܫܐ ܕܐܤܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܪܚܡܘܗܝ ܗܘܘ ܫܕܪܘ ܒܥܘ ܡܢܗ ܕܠܐ ܢܬܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܕܢܥܘܠ ܠܬܐܛܪܘܢ
And likewise the Asiarchs, because they were his friends, sent and requested that he would not risk himself by going to the arena
32 ܟܢܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܒܬܐܛܪܘܢ ܛܒ ܫܓܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܛܠ ܡܢܐ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ
And the crowds that were in the arena were in great confusion, and shouted, some one thing, and some another, and many of them did not even know for what reason they had gathered
33 ܥܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܐܩܝܡܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܐܠܟܤܢܕܪܘܤ ܘܟܕ ܩܡ ܐܢܝܦ ܐܝܕܗ ܘܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܦܘܩ ܪܘܚܐ ܠܥܡܐ
And the Jewish people who were there, brought forward one of their own, a Jew, named Alexander And he got up, waved his hand, and wished to make a defense before the people
34 ܘܟܕ ܝܕܥܘ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܗܘ ܩܥܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܚܕ ܩܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܫܥܝܢ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܕܪܒܐ ܗܝ ܐܪܛܡܝܤ ܕܐܦܤܝܐ
But they knowing him to be a Jew, all shouted out in unison for about two hours: Great is Diana of the Ephesians 
35 ܘܫܠܝ ܐܢܘܢ ܪܫܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܦܤܝܐ ܡܢܘ ܓܝܪ ܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܐܦܤܝܐ ܕܟܘܡܪܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܐܪܛܡܝܤ ܪܒܬܐ ܘܠܨܠܡܗ ܕܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܢܚܬ
But the magistrate of the city calmed them down by saying: Men of Ephesus, What person is there, among men, who does not know the city of the Ephesians to be devoted to the worship of the great Diana, and of her image that comes from heaven
36 ܡܛܠ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܠܘܩܒܠ ܗܕܐ ܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܘܠܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܬܗܘܘܢ ܫܠܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܬܥܒܕܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܒܤܘܪܗܒܐ
Since therefore no one can question this, you ought to be calm, and do nothing rash
37 ܐܝܬܝܬܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܕ ܠܐ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܚܠܨܘ ܘܠܐ ܨܚܝܘ ܠܐܠܗܬܢ
For you have brought forward these men when they are not temple-robbers, and have not insulted our goddess 
38 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܗܢܐ ܕܡܛܪܝܘܤ ܘܒܢܝ ܐܘܡܢܘܬܗ ܐܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܝܢܐ ܥܡ ܐܢܫ ܗܐ ܐܢܬܘܦܛܘܤ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܘܡܢܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܢܩܪܒܘܢ ܘܢܕܘܢܘܢ ܚܕ ܥܡ ܚܕ
But if Demetrius and the men of his trade want to bring charges against anyone, behold, there is a proconsul in the city, let the craftsmen come forward and settle with one another in court
39 ܘܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܡܕܡ ܐܚܪܝܢ ܒܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܕܘܟܬܐ ܕܝܗܝܒܐ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܠܟܢܘܫܝܐ ܡܫܬܪܐ
But if you want something else, it may be settled in a lawful assembly
40 ܡܛܠ ܕܐܦ ܗܫܐ ܒܩܢܕܝܢܘܤ ܩܝܡܝܢܢ ܕܢܬܪܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܫܓܘܫܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢܢ ܕܢܦܘܩ ܪܘܚܐ ܥܠ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܝܘܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܐܬܟܢܫܢ ܒܛܠܐܝܬ ܘܐܫܬܓܫܢ ܕܠܐ ܥܠܬܐ
Because as it is, we now run the risk of being charged with rioting, since we have no valid excuse for this riotous demonstration, or today's conduct. And having said these things, he broke up the meeting

Chapter 20

1 ܘܒܬܪ ܕܫܠܝ ܫܓܘܫܝܐ ܩܪܐ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܒܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܢܫܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܢܦܩ ܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܠܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ
And after the disturbance was over, Paul called the disciples to him, and encouraged them, and embraced them, and left to set out for Macedonia
2 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܟܪܟ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐܬܪܘܬܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܘܒܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܡܠܐ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܗ ܠܗܠܤ ܐܬܪܐ
And as he made his way through those regions, and encouraged them with many words, he made his way to the country of Greece
3 ܘܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܬܠܬܐ ܝܪܚܝܢ ܥܒܕܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܢܟܠܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܟܕ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܐܙܠ ܠܤܘܪܝܐ ܘܐܬܚܫܒ ܕܢܗܦܘܟ ܠܗ ܠܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ
And he was there three months And when he was about to go to Syria, the Jews organized a plot against him, and he decided to return to Macedonia
4 ܘܢܦܩܘ ܥܡܗ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܐܤܝܐ ܤܘܦܛܪܘܤ ܕܡܢ ܒܪܘܐܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܪܤܛܪܟܘܤ ܘܤܩܘܢܕܘܤ ܕܡܢ ܬܤܠܘܢܝܩܐ ܘܓܐܝܘܤ ܕܡܢ ܕܪܒܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܛܝܡܬܐܘܤ ܕܡܢ ܠܘܤܛܪܐ ܘܡܢ ܐܤܝܐ ܛܘܟܝܩܘܤ ܘܛܪܘܦܝܡܘܤ
And there accompanied him as far as Asia, Sopater of the city Berea, and Aristarchus and Secundus who were of Thessalonica, and Gaius who was of the city of Derbe, and Timothy of Lystra, and of Asia Tychicus and Trophimus 
5 ܗܠܝܢ ܐܙܠܘ ܩܕܡܝܢ ܘܩܘܝܘ ܠܢ ܒܛܪܘܐܤ
these went on before us, and waited for us at Troas
6 ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܢܦܩܢ ܡܢ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܒܬܪ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܦܛܝܪܐ ܘܪܕܝܢ ܒܝܡܐ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܠܛܪܘܐܤ ܠܝܘܡܬܐ ܚܡܫܐ ܘܗܘܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܫܒܥܐ
And we departed from Philippi, a Macedonian city, after the days of unleavened bread, and sailing, arrived at Troas in five days, and stayed there a week
7 ܘܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܚܕ ܒܫܒܐ ܟܕ ܟܢܝܫܝܢܢ ܕܢܩܨܐ ܐܘܟܪܤܛܝܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܦܘܩ ܠܗ ܘܐܓܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܦܠܓܗ ܕܠܠܝܐ
And on the first day of the week, when we gathered to break bread, Paul preached to them, and since he was due to leave the next day, he went on with his sermon until midnight
8 ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܠܡܦܐܕܐ ܕܢܘܪܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܒܥܠܝܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܒܗ
And there were many lamps glowing in the room upstairs where we were gathered
9 ܘܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܠܝܡܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܘܛܟܘܤ ܒܟܘܬܐ ܘܫܡܥ ܘܛܒܥ ܒܫܢܬܐ ܝܩܝܪܬܐ ܟܕ ܐܓܪ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܒܫܢܬܗ ܢܦܠ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܬܠܬܐ ܡܕܝܪܝܢ ܘܐܫܬܩܠ ܟܕ ܡܝܬ
And a young man named Eutychus was sitting in a window above and listening And he fell fast sleep as Paul went on with his sermon, and while asleep, he fell down from the third floor loft, and was held as dead
10 ܘܢܚܬ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܢܦܠ ܠܥܠ ܡܢܗ ܘܥܦܩܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܐ ܬܬܙܝܥܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܢܦܫܗ ܒܗ ܗܝ
And Paul went down, and stooped over him and held him, and said: Do not get excited, for his life is still in him
11 ܟܕ ܤܠܩ ܕܝܢ ܩܨܐ ܠܚܡܐ ܘܛܥܡ ܘܗܘܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܤܠܩ ܨܦܪܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܦܩ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܒܝܒܫܐ
And when he went back upstairs, he broke the bread and ate, and spoke until daybreak And then he left to go by land
12 ܘܕܒܪܘܗܝ ܠܥܠܝܡܐ ܟܕ ܚܝ ܘܚܕܝܘ ܒܗ ܪܘܪܒܐܝܬ
And they carried in the living young man, and rejoiced immensely over him
13 ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܢܚܬܢ ܠܐܠܦܐ ܘܪܕܝܢ ܠܘܥܕܐ ܕܬܤܘܤ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܥܬܝܕܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܕܢܩܒܠܝܘܗܝ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܗܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܦܩܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܢ ܟܕ ܐܙܠ ܗܘܐ ܗܘ ܒܝܒܫܐ
And we boarded the ship and sailed to the port of Thesos, where we were to take in Paul, as he had asked us when he left to go on by land 
14 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܩܒܠܢܝܗܝ ܡܢ ܬܤܘܤ ܫܩܠܢܝܗܝ ܒܐܠܦܐ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܠܡܝܛܘܠܝܢܐ
And when we welcomed him at Thesos, we took him on board and made for Mitylene
15 ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܪܕܝܢ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܟܝܘܤ ܓܙܪܬܐ ܘܬܘܒ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܤܡܘܤ ܘܩܘܝܢ ܒܛܪܘܓܠܝܘܢ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܡܝܠܝܛܘܤ
And the next day, we sailed from there over towards the island of Chios, and the following day we arrived at Samos, and stayed at Trogyllium, and on the next day we arrived at Miletus
16 ܦܤܝܩ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܓܝܪ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܕܢܥܒܪܝܗ ܠܐܦܤܘܤ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܫܬܘܚܪ ܠܗ ܬܡܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܤܪܗܒ ܗܘܐ ܕܐܢ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܝܘܡܐ ܕܦܢܛܩܘܤܛܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܢܥܒܕܝܘܗܝ
For Paul had decided to himself to pass by Ephesus, so he not get delayed there, because he was pressing on to possibly observe the day of Pentecost in Jerusalem
17 ܘܡܢܗ ܡܢ ܡܝܠܝܛܘܤ ܫܕܪ ܐܝܬܝ ܠܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܥܕܬܐ ܕܐܦܤܘܤ
And from Miletus, he sent and called the Elders of the church at Ephesus
18 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܝܘܡܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܕܥܠܬ ܠܐܤܝܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܟܠܗ ܙܒܢܐ
And when they had come to him, he said to them: You yourselves know, how since the first day that I entered Asia Minor, I have always been with you;
19 ܟܕ ܦܠܚ ܐܢܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܒܡܟܝܟܘܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ ܘܒܕܡܥܐ ܘܒܢܤܝܘܢܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܝ ܒܢܟܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ
:serving God with great humility, and with tears, amid the trials which were brought upon me from the schemes of Jews
20 ܘܠܐ ܒܤܝܬ ܒܡܕܡ ܕܦܩܚ ܗܘܐ ܠܢܦܫܬܟܘܢ ܕܐܟܪܙ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܐܠܦ ܒܫܘܩܐ ܘܒܒܬܐ
and I did not neglect that which was beneficial for your souls, that I might preach to you, and teach in the streets and in houses
21 ܟܕ ܡܤܗܕ ܗܘܝܬ ܠܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܠܐܪܡܝܐ ܥܠ ܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܕܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܒܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
while I testified to the Jews and to the Arameans about repentance towards God and faith in our Lord Jesus the Messiah 
22 ܘܗܫܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܤܝܪ ܐܢܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܘܐܙܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܐ ܐܪܥ ܠܝ ܒܗ
;And now I am going to Jerusalem bound in spirit, and I do not know what will happen to me there
23 ܒܪܡ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܒܟܠ ܡܕܝܢܐ ܡܤܗܕ ܠܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܐܤܘܪܐ ܘܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܥܬܝܕܝܢ ܠܟ
except that the Holy Spirit has made it clear to me in town after town, saying: Imprisonment and persecutions await you
24 ܐܠܐ ܠܝ ܠܐ ܚܫܝܒܐ ܢܦܫܝ ܡܕܡ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܫܠܡ ܪܗܛܝ ܘܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܩܒܠܬ ܡܢ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܐܤܗܕ ܥܠ ܤܒܪܬܐ ܕܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
But to me my life counts as nothing, so that I might only finish my mission, and the ministry which I have received from our Lord Jesus, to give evidence of the gospel of the grace of God
25 ܘܗܫܐ ܐܢܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܕܬܘܒ ܦܪܨܘܦܝ ܠܐ ܚܙܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܟܪܟܬ ܐܟܪܙܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ
And now, I know that all of you among whom I have traveled and preached the Realm of God will not see my face anymore
26 ܘܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܡܤܗܕ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܝܘܡܐ ܕܝܘܡܢܐ ܕܕܟܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܕܡܐ ܕܟܠܟܘܢ
I therefore swear to you this day, that I have a clear conscience about all of you
27 ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܫܬܐܠܬ ܕܐܘܕܥܟܘܢ ܟܠܗ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
For I have never faltered to present to you the whole of God's purpose
28 ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܒܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܘܒܟܠܗ ܡܪܥܝܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܐܩܝܡܟܘܢ ܒܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܐܦܤܩܘܦܐ ܕܬܪܥܘܢ ܠܥܕܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܗܝ ܕܩܢܗ ܒܕܡܗ
Take care therefore yourselves, and to all the flock over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you bishops, that you tend the church of God which He has purchased with his blood
29 ܐܢܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܕܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܕܐܙܠ ܐܢܐ ܢܥܠܘܢ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܕܐܒܐ ܬܩܝܦܐ ܕܠܐ ܚܝܤܝܢ ܥܠ ܡܪܥܝܬܐ
For I know that after I am gone, fierce wolves will accost you, and will have no compassion for the flock 
30 ܘܐܦ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܢܩܘܡܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܡܡܠܠܝ ܡܥܩܡܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܗܦܟܘܢ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܒܬܪܗܘܢ
And from among yourselves as well, there will rise up men speaking travesties, so they might turn the disciples away to follow them
31 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܥܝܪܝܢ ܘܥܗܝܕܝܢ ܕܫܢܝܐ ܬܠܬ ܠܐ ܫܠܝܬ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܘܒܐܝܡܡܐ ܟܕ ܒܕܡܥܐ ܡܪܬܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܟܘܢ
Therefore be on your guard, and remember that day and night for three years I never ceased to keep you right, shedding tears over each one of you
32 ܘܗܫܐ ܡܓܥܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܡܠܬܐ ܕܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܗܝ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܒܢܝܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܝܗܒܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܝܘܪܬܢܐ ܥܡ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܩܕܝܫܐ
And now I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which has power to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all the saints
33 ܟܤܦܐ ܐܘ ܕܗܒܐ ܐܘ ܢܚܬܐ ܠܐ ܪܓܬ
I have not sought for silver, or gold, or clothes
34 ܘܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܠܤܢܝܩܘܬܝ ܘܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܥܡܝ ܫܡܫ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܝܕܝ
And you yourselves know that with these hands I provided for my needs, and for those that were with me
35 ܘܟܠܡܕܡ ܚܘܝܬܟܘܢ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܠܡܠܐܐ ܘܠܡܐܨܦ ܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܟܪܝܗܝܢ ܘܠܡܥܗܕܘ ܡܠܘܗܝ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܛܠ ܕܗܘ ܐܡܪ ܕܛܘܒܘܗܝ ܠܐܝܢܐ ܕܝܗܒ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܢܤܒ
And I did this to show you that it is an obligation to work and care for the weak, and to remember the words of our Lord Jesus, for he has said, That he who gives is more blessed than he who receives
36 ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܩܥܕ ܥܠ ܒܘܪܟܘܗܝ ܘܨܠܝ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܥܡܗ
And after he had spoken these things, he fell to his knees and prayed, and all the people with him
37 ܘܗܘܬ ܒܟܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܒܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܥܦܩܘܗܝ ܘܡܢܫܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
And there was great weeping among them all And they embraced him, and kissed him
38 ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܡܫܬܢܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠ ܗܝ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܠܐ ܬܘܒ ܥܬܝܕܝܢ ܕܢܚܙܘܢ ܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܘܠܘܝܘܗܝ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܐܠܦܐ
And they were saddened most by the words he had spoke, that they would never see his face again. And they then escorted him to the ship

Chapter 21

1 ܘܦܪܫܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܘܪܕܝܢ ܬܪܝܨܐܝܬ ܠܩܘ ܓܙܪܬܐ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܪܘܕܘܤ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܠܦܐܛܪܐ
And we parted from them, and sailed a straight course to the island of Coos: and the next day, we reached Rhodes, and from there on to Patara
2 ܘܐܫܟܚܢ ܬܡܢ ܐܠܦܐ ܕܐܙܠܐ ܠܦܘܢܝܩܐ ܘܤܠܩܢ ܠܗ ܘܪܕܝܢ
And we found there a ship bound for Phoenicia, and we boarded it, and went on
3 ܘܡܛܝܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܘܬ ܩܘܦܪܘܤ ܓܙܪܬܐ ܘܫܒܩܢܗ ܠܤܡܠܐ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܠܤܘܪܝܐ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܡܛܝܢ ܠܨܘܪ ܬܡܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܠܐܠܦܐ ܠܡܢܚܘ ܛܥܢܗ
And we sighted the island of Cyprus, and leaving it to port, we sailed on to Syria, and from there we put in at Tyre, for the ship was to unload the cargo there 
4 ܘܟܕ ܐܫܟܚܢ ܬܡܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܩܘܝܢ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܫܒܥܐ ܘܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܝܘܡ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܒܪܘܚ ܕܠܐ ܢܐܙܠ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
And since we found disciples there, we stayed a week with them and everyday they told Paul, through the Spirit, not to go to Jerusalem
5 ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܢܦܩܢ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܡܠܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܢܫܝܗܘܢ ܘܒܢܝܗܘܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܩܥܕܘ ܥܠ ܒܘܪܟܝܗܘܢ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܝܡܐ ܘܨܠܝܘ
And after those days, we set off on our way, and they all escorted us with their wives and children, until beyond the city, and they fell to their knees on the seashore, and prayed 
6 ܘܢܫܩܢ ܠܚܕܕܐ ܘܤܠܩܢ ܠܐܠܦܐ ܘܗܦܟܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܠܒܬܝܗܘܢ
And we kissed one another, and we boarded ship, and they returned to their homes
7 ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܪܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܨܘܪ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܠܥܟܘ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܝܗܒܢ ܫܠܡܐ ܠܐܚܐ ܕܬܡܢ ܘܫܪܝܢ ܨܐܕܝܗܘܢ ܝܘܡܐ ܚܕ
And we sailed from Tyre, and arrived at the city Acco, and we greeted the brothers there, and stayed with them one day
8 ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܦܩܢ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܠܩܤܪܝܐ ܘܥܠܢ ܫܪܝܢ ܒܒܝܬܗ ܕܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܡܤܒܪܢܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܫܒܥܐ
And the following day, we set off and came to Cesarea, and we went in and stayed at the house of Philip the Evangelist, who was one of the seven
9 ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܝ ܠܗ ܒܢܬܐ ܒܬܘܠܬܐ ܐܪܒܥ ܕܡܬܢܒܝܢ ܗܘܝ
He had four virgin daughters, who were prophets
10 ܘܟܕ ܐܝܬܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܢܚܬ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕ ܢܒܝܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܓܒܘܤ
And when we were there several days, a certain prophet came down from Judaea, whose name was Agabus
11 ܘܥܠ ܠܘܬܢ ܘܫܩܠ ܥܪܩܬܐ ܕܚܨܘܗܝ ܕܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܐܤܪ ܪܓܠܐ ܕܢܦܫܗ ܘܐܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܡܪܗ ܕܥܪܩܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܐܤܪܘܢܗ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܢܫܠܡܘܢܗ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܥܡܡܐ
And he came in to us, and took Paul's belt, and tied up his own feet and hands, and said: The Holy Spirit says this: The Jews in Jerusalem shall so bind the man who owns this belt, and they shall hand him over to the pagans
12 ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܫܡܥܢ ܒܥܝܢ ܡܢܗ ܚܢܢ ܘܒܢܝ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܐܙܠ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
And when we heard these words, we and everybody there implored him not go to Jerusalem 
13 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܒܟܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܫܚܩܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ ܠܠܒܝ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܐܬܐܤܪ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܡܛܝܒ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܕܐܡܘܬ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܚܠܦ ܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ
Then Paul answered and said: What are you doing -  weeping and breaking my heart  ? For I am ready to not only be imprisoned, but also to die in Jerusalem, for the name of our Lord Jesus the Messiah
14 ܘܟܕ ܠܐ ܐܬܛܦܝܤ ܠܢ ܒܗܠܢ ܠܢ ܘܐܡܪܢ ܕܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܢܗܘܐ
And as he would not listen to us, we gave up trying and said: Let the will of our Lord be done 
15 ܘܒܬܪ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܬܛܝܒܢ ܘܤܠܩܢ ܠܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
And after those days, we made our preparations and went up to Jerusalem
16 ܘܐܬܘ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܡܢ ܩܤܪܝܐ ܟܕ ܕܒܝܪܝܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܐܚܐ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܤܘܢ ܘܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܩܘܦܪܘܤ ܕܢܩܒܠܢ ܒܒܝܬܗ
And some disciples of Caesarea came along with us, bringing with them a brother from among the first converts, named Mnason, from Cyprus, so he might let us stay at his house
17 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܩܒܠܘܢ ܐܚܐ ܚܕܝܐܝܬ
And when we arrived in Jerusalem, the brothers welcomed us warmly
18 ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܥܠܢ ܥܡ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܠܘܬ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܟܕ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܩܫܝܫܐ
And the next day when all the Elders were present, we went in with Paul to James
19 ܘܝܗܒܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܠܡܐ ܘܡܫܬܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܒܬܪ ܒܬܪ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܥܡܡܐ ܒܬܫܡܫܬܗ
And we gave them greetings and Paul gave them a detailed account of all that God had done among the pagans though his ministry
20 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܫܒܚܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܬ ܐܚܘܢ ܟܡܐ ܪܒܘܢ ܐܝܬ ܒܝܗܘܕ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܛܢܢܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܢܡܘܤܐ
And they gave God glory when they heard And they said to him: Our brother, You see how many from among the Jews who now believe, and all staunchly keep the Law
21 ܐܬܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܥܠܝܟ ܕܡܠܦ ܐܢܬ ܕܢܦܪܩܘܢ ܡܢ ܡܘܫܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܒܥܡܡܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܕܠܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܓܙܪܝܢ ܒܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܒܥܝܕܐ ܕܢܡܘܤܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܡܗܠܟܝܢ
And it has been told to them of you, that you teach all the Jews among the pagans to break away from Moses, by telling them not to circumcise their children, and to not keep the customs of the Law
22 ܡܛܠ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܡܫܬܡܥܐ ܗܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܐܬܝܬ ܠܟܐ
,Now, since they have heard that you have arrived here
23 ܥܒܕ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܡܪܝܢܢ ܠܟ ܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܪܒܥܐ ܕܢܕܝܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܬܕܟܘܢ
do what we tell you. We have four men, who have vowed to purify themselves
24 ܕܒܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܙܠ ܐܬܕܟܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܐܦܩ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܢܦܩܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܓܪܥܘܢ ܪܫܝܗܘܢ ܘܡܬܝܕܥܐ ܠܟܠܢܫ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܥܠܝܟ ܕܓܠ ܗܘ ܘܐܢܬ ܠܢܡܘܤܐ ܫܠܡ ܐܢܬ ܘܢܛܪ
Take them, and go and purify yourself with them, and pay their expenses, so they will shave their heads, so everyone will know that what is said against you is false, and that you have fulfilled the Law and observe it
25 ܥܠ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܡܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܚܢܢ ܟܬܒܢ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܢܛܪܝܢ ܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܕܕܒܝܚܐ ܘܡܢ ܙܢܝܘܬܐ ܘܡܢ ܚܢܝܩܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܡܐ
As to those of the pagans who believe, we have written that they should abstain from sacrifices to idols, and from illicit relations, and from what is strangled, and from blood
26 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܕܒܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܘܐܬܕܟܝ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܥܠ ܐܙܠ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܟܕ ܡܘܕܥ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܘܠܝܐ ܕܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܬܕܟܝܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܬܩܪܒ ܩܘܪܒܢܐ ܕܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ
Then Paul took those men and on the next day was purified with them, and he  went into the temple, informing them how to complete the days of purification until each of them gave the offering
27 ܘܟܕ ܡܛܝ ܝܘܡܐ ܕܫܒܥܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܡܢ ܐܤܝܐ ܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܓܪܝܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܥܡܐ ܟܠܗ ܘܐܪܡܝܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܝܕܝܐ
And when the seventh day arrived, the Jews from Asia saw him in the temple, and they stirred up all the people against him, and laid hold of him
28 ܟܕ ܡܒܓܢܝܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܒܢܝ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܥܕܪܘ ܗܢܐ ܗܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܠܘܩܒܠ ܥܡܐ ܕܝܠܢ ܡܠܦ ܒܟܠ ܕܘܟܐ ܘܠܘܩܒܠ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܘܠܘܩܒܠ ܐܬܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܐܦ ܠܐܪܡܝܐ ܐܥܠ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܤܝܒܗ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܩܕܝܫܐ
shouting out and saying: Men, sons of Israel; help This is the man, who teaches everywhere against our people, and against the Law, and against this place; and he has also brought Arameans into the temple, and has defiled this holy place
29 ܩܕܡܘ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܚܙܘ ܥܡܗ ܠܛܪܘܦܝܡܤ ܐܦܤܝܐ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܤܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܥܡ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܥܠ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ
For they had previously seen him in the city with Trophimus, the Ephesian, and they thought he had entered the temple with Paul
30 ܘܐܫܬܓܫܬ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܘܐܚܕܘܗܝ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ ܘܓܪܘܗܝ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܐܬܬܚܕܘ ܬܪܥܐ
And the whole city was in a uproar, and all the people ran together, and laid hold of Paul, and dragged him out of the temple, and the gates were immediately closed
31 ܘܟܕ ܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܟܢܫܐ ܠܡܩܛܠܗ ܐܫܬܡܥܬ ܠܟܠܝܪܟܐ ܕܐܤܦܝܪ ܕܟܠܗ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܬܬܙܝܥܬ ܠܗ
And the crowd would have killed him but word of it reached the commander of the garrison, that the entire city was in riot
32 ܘܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܕܒܪ ܠܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܘܠܐܤܛܪܛܝܘܛܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܪܗܛܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܠܟܠܝܪܟܐ ܘܠܐܤܛܪܛܝܘܛܐ ܒܗܠܘ ܡܢ ܕܡܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܠܦܘܠܘܤ
And immediately he called out centurions and many soldiers, and hurried off their way And when they saw the commander and the soldiers, they stopped beating Paul 
33 ܘܩܪܒ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܠܝܪܟܐ ܘܐܚܕܗ ܘܦܩܕ ܕܢܐܤܪܘܢܗ ܒܬܪܬܝܢ ܫܫܠܢ ܘܡܫܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܕܡܢܘ ܘܡܢܐ ܥܒܕ
And the commander came to him and arrested him, and ordered him to be bound with two chains, and he then enquired about  who he was, and what he had done
34 ܘܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܐܟܠܘܤ ܡܕܡ ܡܕܡ ܘܡܛܠ ܩܥܬܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܕܥ ܐܝܕܐ ܗܝ ܫܪܝܪܬܐ ܘܦܩܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܘܒܠܘܢܗ ܠܡܫܪܝܬܐ
And some of the crowd shouted out one thing and another, against him. And since he was unable determine anything due to the noise, he ordered him taken to the garrison
35 ܘܟܕ ܡܛܝ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܠܕܪܓܐ ܛܥܢܘܗܝ ܐܤܛܪܛܝܘܛܐ ܡܛܠ ܩܛܝܪܐ ܕܥܡܐ
And when Paul reach the stairs, the people were so violent that the soldiers had to carry him through
36 ܐܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܬܪܗ ܥܡܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܫܩܘܠܝܗܝ
For a great many people followed after him, and shouted out, saying: Do away with him
37 ܘܟܕ ܡܛܝ ܠܡܥܠ ܠܡܫܪܝܬܐ ܗܘ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܐܡܪ ܠܟܠܝܪܟܐ ܐܢ ܡܦܤ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ ܐܡܠܠ ܥܡܟ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܘܢܐܝܬ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܬ
?And when he came near to be led into the garrison, Paul said to the commander: Would you allow me to speak with you? And he replied to him: Do you speak Greek
38 ܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܡܨܪܝܐ ܕܩܕܡ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܙܝܥܬ ܘܐܦܩܬ ܠܡܕܒܪܐ ܐܪܒܥܐ ܐܠܦܝܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܥܒܕܝ ܒܝܫܬܐ
?Are not you that Egyptian who some time ago incited riots, and led out into the desert four thousand men, all extremists
39 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܐܢܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܢܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܡܢ ܛܪܤܘܤ ܕܩܝܠܝܩܝܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܝܕܝܥܬܐ ܕܒܗ ܝܠܝܕ ܐܢܐ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܟ ܐܦܤ ܠܝ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ ܠܥܡܐ
Paul said to him: I am a Jew, a man of Tarsus, a well known city in Cilicia where I was born, I ask you to allow me to speak to the people
40 ܘܟܕ ܐܦܤ ܠܗ ܩܡ ܦܘܠܘܤ ܥܠ ܕܪܓܐ ܘܐܙܝܥ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܗ ܘܟܕ ܒܗܠܘ ܡܠܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܥܒܪܐܝܬ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
And when he so allowed him, Paul stood upon the stairs, and gestured to them with his hand, and when they quieted down, he spoke to them in Hebraic*, and said to them

Aramaic: Hebrew was not spoken after the Exile*
