Chapter 1

 1 ܒܪܫܝܬ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܘܗܘ ܡܠܬܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܗܘ ܡܠܬܐ
 
. In the beginning was the Word *; and the Word was with God; and the Word was God
 2 ܗܢܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܒܪܫܝܬ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ
 
. He was with God in the beginning
 3 ܟܠ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܗܘܐ ܘܒܠܥܕܘܗܝ ܐܦܠܐ ܚܕܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܕܡ ܕܗܘܐ
 
. Everything was by his hands; and without him not one thing existed of all that existed
 4 ܒܗ ܚܝܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܚܝܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܕܒܢܝܢܫܐ
 
. In Him was Life; and the Life was the Light of men
5 ܘܗܘ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܒܚܫܘܟܐ ܡܢܗܪ ܘܚܫܘܟܐ ܠܐ ܐܕܪܟܗ
 
. And this Light shines in the darkness; and that darkness could not overcome it
6 ܗܘܐ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܕܐܫܬܕܪ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܫܡܗ ܝܘܚܢܢ
 
. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John
7 ܗܢܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܤܗܕܘܬܐ ܕܢܤܗܕ ܥܠ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܕܟܠܢܫ ܢܗܝܡܢ ܒܐܝܕܗ
 
. He came as a witness, as a  witness to speak for the Light
 8 ܠܐ ܗܘ ܗܘܐ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܢܤܗܕ ܥܠ ܢܘܗܪܐ
 
. He was not the Light, only a witness to speak for the Light
 9 ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܕܫܪܪܐ ܕܡܢܗܪ ܠܟܠܢܫ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܥܠܡܐ
 
. The true Light was that which enlightens every man who comes into the world
10 ܒܥܠܡܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܥܠܡܐ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܗܘܐ ܘܥܠܡܐ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܗ
. He was in the world; the world that was by his hands; and the world did not know him
11 ܠܕܝܠܗ ܐܬܐ ܘܕܝܠܗ ܠܐ ܩܒܠܘܗܝ
. He came to his own; and his own accepted him not
12 ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܩܒܠܘܗܝ ܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܕܒܢܝܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܒܫܡܗ
; But to those that accepted him, he gave the power that they might be children of God; to those that believe on his name
13 ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܘ ܡܢ ܕܡܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܢ ܨܒܝܢܐ ܕܒܤܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܢ ܨܒܝܢܐ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܝܠܕܘ
. who are born not of blood, not of the will of the body, not of the will of a man, but of God
14 ܘܡܠܬܐ ܒܤܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܐܓܢ ܒܢ ܘܚܙܝܢ ܫܘܒܚܗ ܫܘܒܚܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܝܚܝܕܝܐ ܕܡܢ ܐܒܐ ܕܡܠܐ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܘܩܘܫܬܐ
And the Word became embodied, and lived among us: and we saw his glory, a glory as of the One-born of the Father, who is full of grace and truth
15 ܝܘܚܢܢ ܤܗܕ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܘܩܥܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܢܘ ܗܘ ܕܐܡܪܬ ܕܒܬܪܝ ܐܬܐ ܘܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܩܕܡܝ ܡܛܠ ܕܩܕܡܝ ܗܘ ܡܢܝ
John gave witness about him, and shouted, and said: This is he, of whom I said would comes after me, and yet he is first; for he was before me
16 ܘܡܢ ܡܠܝܘܬܗ ܚܢܢ ܟܠܢ ܢܤܒܢ ܘܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܚܠܦ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ
. And of his fullness have we all received grace, by grace
17 ܡܛܠ ܕܢܡܘܤܐ ܒܝܕ ܡܘܫܐ ܐܬܝܗܒ ܫܪܪܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܒܝܕ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܘܐ
. For the law was given by Moses; but by Jesus the Messiah the truth and grace was given
18 ܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܡܬܘܡ ܝܚܝܕܝܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܒܥܘܒܐ ܕܐܒܘܗܝ ܗܘ ܐܫܬܥܝ
. No man has ever seen God; the One-born of God, who is dear to his Father, he has revealed Him
19 ܘܗܕܐ ܗܝ ܤܗܕܘܬܗ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܟܕ ܫܕܪܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܠܘܝܐ ܕܢܫܐܠܘܢܝܗܝ ܐܢܬ ܡܢ ܐܢܬ
? And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews of Jerusalem sent the priests and Levites to ask him, Who are you
20 ܘܐܘܕܝ ܘܠܐ ܟܦܪ ܘܐܘܕܝ ܕܠܘ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܫܝܚܐ
. And he confessed, and did not deny, but declared: I am not the Messiah
21 ܘܫܐܠܘܗܝ ܬܘܒ ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܠܝܐ ܐܢܬ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܐ ܐܝܬܝ ܢܒܝܐ ܐܢܬ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܐ
And they asked him again: Who then ? Are you Elijah ? And he said: I am not. Are you a prophet ? And he said, No.
22 ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܘܡܢܘ ܐܢܬ ܕܢܬܠ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܕܪܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܟ
? And they said to him: Who are you? that we may answer those that sent us. What do you say about yourself
23 ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܩܠܐ ܕܩܪܐ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܕܐܫܘܘ ܐܘܪܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܐܫܥܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ
. He said: I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make open the way of the Lord; as said the prophet Isaiah
24 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܫܬܕܪܘ ܡܢ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܗܘܘ
. And those who were sent were of the Pharisees
25 ܘܫܐܠܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܥܡܕ ܐܢܬ ܐܢ ܐܢܬ ܠܐ ܐܝܬܝܟ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܠܝܐ ܘܠܐ ܢܒܝܐ
? And they asked him, and said to him: Why then do you baptize, if you are not the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor a prophet
26 ܥܢܐ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܐ ܡܥܡܕ ܐܢܐ ܒܡܝܐ ܒܝܢܬܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܩܐܡ ܗܘ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ
. John answered, and said to them; I baptize with water; but one stands among you, whom you do not know
27 ܗܢܘ ܗܘ ܕܒܬܪܝ ܐܬܐ ܘܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܩܕܡܝ ܗܘ ܕܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܫܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܫܪܐ ܥܪܩܐ ܕܡܤܢܘܗܝ
. He it is that will come after me, and was before me, whose sandal straps I am not worthy to loosen
28 ܗܠܝܢ ܒܒܝܬ ܥܢܝܐ ܗܘܝ ܒܥܒܪܐ ܕܝܘܪܕܢܢ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܡܥܡܕ ܗܘܐ ܝܘܚܢܢ
. These things occurred in Bethany, at the crossing of the Jordan where John was baptizing
29 ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܒܬܪܗ ܚܙܐ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܐ ܐܡܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܕܫܩܠ ܚܛܝܬܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ
. The day after, John saw Jesus who was coming toward him, and said: Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world
30 ܗܢܘ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܡܪܬ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܕܒܬܪܝ ܐܬܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܘܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܩܕܡܝ ܡܛܠ ܕܩܕܡܝ ܗܘ ܡܢܝ
. This is he of whom that I said, After me comes a man, who is yet first, for he was before me
31 ܘܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܝܬ ܠܗ ܐܠܐ ܕܢܬܝܕܥ ܠܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܐܢܐ ܕܒܡܝܐ ܐܥܡܕ
. And I knew him not; but that he might be known to Israel, therefore, I have come baptizing with water
32 ܘܐܤܗܕ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܚܙܝܬ ܠܪܘܚܐ ܕܢܚܬܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܐܝܟ ܝܘܢܐ ܘܩܘܝܬ ܥܠܘܗܝ
. And John testified, and said: I saw the Spirit descending from heaven, as if a dove, and it rested upon him
33 ܘܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܝܬ ܠܗ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ ܕܐܥܡܕ ܒܡܝܐ ܗܘ ܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܕܐܝܢܐ ܕܚܙܐ ܐܢܬ ܕܢܚܬܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܘܡܩܘܝܐ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܗܢܘ ܡܥܡܕ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
And I did not know him; but he who sent me to baptize with water, said to me - On whom you see the Spirit descend, and rest upon, he will baptize with the Holy Spirit
34 ܘܐܢܐ ܚܙܝܬ ܘܐܤܗܕܬ ܕܗܢܘ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
. And I saw; and I testified, that this is the Son of God
35 ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܩܐܡ ܗܘܐ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܬܪܝܢ ܡܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
. And the next day, John and two of his disciples were standing
36 ܘܚܪ ܒܝܫܘܥ ܟܕ ܡܗܠܟ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܐ ܐܡܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
! And he looked at Jesus as he walked, and said: Behold, the Lamb of God
37 ܘܫܡܥܘ ܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܒܬܪܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ
. And both his disciples heard him as he spoke, and they followed Jesus
38 ܘܐܬܦܢܝ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܚܙܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܐܬܝܢ ܒܬܪܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܪܒܢ ܐܝܟܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܬ
? And Jesus turned, and saw them following him, and he said to them: What do you want ? They said to him: Teacher of us, where do you stay
39 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܬܘ ܘܬܚܙܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܘ ܘܚܙܘ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܘܠܘܬܗ ܗܘܘ ܝܘܡܐ ܗܘ ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܝ ܐܝܟ ܫܥܐ ܥܤܪ
. He said to them: Come, and see. And they came and saw where he was; and they stayed with him that day, and it was about the tenth hour
40 ܚܕ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܡܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܕܪܐܘܤ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ
. And one of those who heard John and followed Jesus was Andrew, the brother of Simon
41 ܗܢܐ ܚܙܐ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܫܟܚܢܝܗܝ ܠܡܫܝܚܐ
. He first saw Simon his brother, and said to him: I have found him, the Messiah
42 ܘܐܝܬܝܗ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܚܪ ܒܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܪܗ ܕܝܘܢܐ ܐܢܬ ܬܬܩܪܐ ܟܐܦܐ
. And he took him to Jesus. And Jesus looked at him, and said you are Simon the son of Jona; you will be called Kephas
43 ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܨܒܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܡܦܩ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܐܫܟܚ ܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ
. The next day, Jesus wanted to leave for Galilee: and he found Philip and said to him, Follow me
44 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܨܝܕܐ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܗ ܕܐܢܕܪܐܘܤ ܘܕܫܡܥܘܢ
. And Philip was from Bethsaida, the town of Andrew and Simon
45 ܘܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܐܫܟܚ ܠܢܬܢܝܐܝܠ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܘ ܕܟܬܒ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܡܘܫܐ ܒܢܡܘܤܐ ܘܒܢܒܝܐ ܐܫܟܚܢܝܗܝ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܗܘ ܒܪ ܝܘܤܦ ܡܢ ܢܨܪܬ
And Philip found Nathaniel, and said to him: We have found him, of whom Moses wrote about in the law, and the prophets, Jesus the son of Joseph, who is of Nazareth
46 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܢܬܢܝܐܝܠ ܡܢ ܢܨܪܬ ܡܫܟܚ ܡܕܡ ܕܛܒ ܢܗܘܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܬܐ ܘܬܚܙܐ
. Nathaniel said to him: Can there be any good thing from Nazareth ? Philip said to him: Come, and see
47 ܘܚܙܝܗܝ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܢܬܢܝܐܝܠ ܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܗܐ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܒܪ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܕܢܟܠܐ ܠܝܬ ܒܗ
. And Jesus saw Nathaniel coming towards him, and said of him: Behold a true Israelite, in whom is no dishonesty
48 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܢܬܢܝܐܝܠ ܡܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܕܠܐ ܢܩܪܝܟ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܟܕ ܬܚܝܬ ܬܬܐ ܐܢܬ ܚܙܝܬܟ
. Nathaniel said to him: From where do you know me? Jesus said to him: Before Philip called you when you were under the fig-tree, I saw you
49 ܥܢܐ ܢܬܢܝܐܝܠ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܪܒܝ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܡܠܟܗ ܕܐܝܤܪܝܠ
. Nathaniel answered, and said to him: Teacher; you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel
50 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܠ ܕܐܡܪܬ ܠܟ ܕܚܙܝܬܟ ܬܚܝܬ ܬܬܐ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܐܢܬ ܕܪܘܪܒܢ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܬܚܙܐ
. Jesus said to him: Because I said to you, that I saw you under the fig-tree, do you believe ? You will see greater things than these
51 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܗܫܐ ܬܚܙܘܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܕܦܬܝܚܝܢ ܘܡܠܐܟܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܟܕ ܤܠܩܝܢ ܘܢܚܬܝܢ ܠܘܬ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
He said to him: Truly, truly, I say to you, That hereafter you will see the heavens opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending to the Son of Man

Chapter 2

 1 ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܬܠܬܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܫܬܘܬܐ ܒܩܛܢܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܐܡܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܬܡܢ ܗܘܬ
 
And on the third day there was a wedding celebration in Cana, a town of Galilee: and the mother of Jesus was there
 2 ܘܐܦ ܗܘ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܬܩܪܝܘ ܠܗ ܠܡܫܬܘܬܐ
 
. And Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding celebration
 3 ܘܚܤܪ ܗܘܐ ܚܡܪܐ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܠܗ ܐܡܗ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܚܡܪܐ ܠܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ
 
. And the wine ran out: and his mother said to Jesus: They have no wine
 4 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܐ ܠܝ ܘܠܟܝ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܠܐ ܥܕܟܝܠ ܐܬܬ ܫܥܬܝ
 
. Jesus said to her: Why turn to me? My hour has not yet come
 5 ܐܡܪܐ ܐܡܗ ܠܡܫܡܫܢܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܡܪ ܠܟܘܢ ܥܒܕܘ
 
. His mother said to those waiting on table: Do whatever he tells you
 6 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܝ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܐܓܢܐ ܕܟܐܦܐ ܫܬ ܕܤܝܡܢ ܠܬܕܟܝܬܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܐܚܕܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܪܒܥܝܢ ܐܘ ܬܠܬܐ
 
. And there were there six stone water jars, set out for Jewish ceremonial washings, each one holding two to three measures
 7 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܠܘ ܐܢܝܢ ܡܝܐ ܠܐܓܢܐ ܘܡܠܘ ܐܢܝܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܥܠ
 
. Jesus said to them: Fill the jars with water. And they filled them to the brim
 8 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܠܘܥܘ ܡܟܝܠ ܘܐܝܬܘ ܠܪܝܫ ܤܡܟܐ ܘܐܝܬܝܘ
 
. He said to them: Draw some out now, and take it to the head feast guest. And they did this
 9 ܘܟܕ ܛܥܡ ܗܘ ܪܝܫ ܤܡܟܐ ܡܝܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܗܘܘ ܚܡܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܫܡܫܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܡܠܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܡܝܐ ܩܪܐ ܪܝܫ ܤܡܟܐ ܠܚܬܢܐ
 
And when the head feast guest tasted the water that had now become wine, and had no idea where it came from, only the waiters who had filled the pots with water knew, the head feast guest called the groom
10 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܚܡܪܐ ܛܒܐ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܡܐ ܕܪܘܝܘ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܒܨܝܪ ܐܢܬ ܕܝܢ ܢܛܪܬܝܗܝ ܠܚܡܪܐ ܛܒܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܫܐ
. and said to him: People usually serve the best wine first, and keep the cheaper variety until the guests have had plenty; but you have kept the best wine till now
11 ܗܕܐ ܗܝ ܐܬܐ ܩܕܡܝܬܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܩܛܢܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܐܘܕܥ ܫܘܒܚܗ ܘܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
. This is the first of the signs given by Jesus which was performed at Cana in Galilee, and revealed his glory: and his disciples believed in him
12 ܒܬܪ ܗܕܐ ܢܚܬ ܠܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ ܗܘ ܘܐܡܗ ܘܐܚܘܗܝ ܘܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܬܡܢ ܗܘܘ ܩܠܝܠ ܝܘܡܬܐ
. After this he went down to Capernaum with his mother and his brothers and his disciples; and they stayed there only a few days
13 ܘܩܪܝܒ ܗܘܐ ܦܨܚܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܤܠܩ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܝܫܘܥ
. And as the Jewish Passover drew near, Jesus went up to Jerusalem
14 ܘܐܫܟܚ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܠܗܠܝܢ ܕܡܙܒܢܝܢ ܬܘܪܐ ܘܥܪܒܐ ܘܝܘܢܐ ܘܠܡܥܪܦܢܐ ܕܝܬܒܝܢ
. And in the temple he found those who sold oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money changers sitting there
15 ܘܥܒܕ ܠܗ ܦܪܓܠܐ ܡܢ ܚܒܠܐ ܘܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܦܩ ܡܢ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܠܥܪܒܐ ܘܠܬܘܪܐ ܘܠܡܥܪܦܢܐ ܘܐܫܕ ܥܘܪܦܢܗܘܢ ܘܦܬܘܪܝܗܘܢ ܗܦܟ
And making himself a whip out of a cord, and drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep and the oxen and the money changers; and he spilled over their coins, and overturned their tables
16 ܘܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܙܒܢܝܢ ܝܘܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܫܩܘܠܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܟܐ ܘܠܐ ܬܥܒܕܘܢܗ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܕܐܒܝ ܒܝܬ ܬܐܓܘܪܬܐ
. and he said to pigeon sellers, Take all this out of here; and do not turn my Father's house into a market
17 ܘܐܬܕܟܪܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܛܢܢܗ ܕܒܝܬܟ ܐܟܠܢܝ
. And his disciples remembered, that it is written: The zeal for your house will consume me
18 ܥܢܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܡܢܐ ܐܬܐ ܡܚܘܐ ܐܢܬ ܠܢ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ
? But the Jews responded, and said: What sign can you show to us to justify what you have done
19 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܤܬܘܪܘ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܠܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܐܢܐ ܡܩܝܡ ܐܢܐ ܠܗ
. Jesus answered them: Do away with this sanctuary, and in three days I will construct it again
20 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܠܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܘܫܬ ܫܢܝܢ ܐܬܒܢܝ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܐܢܬ ܠܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܡܩܝܡ ܐܢܬ ܠܗ
? The Jews said to him: It has taken forty-six years to build this sanctuary; are you going to construct it again in three days
21 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܕܦܓܪܗ
. But he was speaking of the sanctuary that was his body
22 ܟܕ ܩܡ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܐܬܕܟܪܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܗܕܐ ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܘܗܝܡܢܘ ܠܟܬܒܐ ܘܠܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܝܫܘܥ
. And when he had rose from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this: and they believed the scriptures, and the words that Jesus had said
23 ܟܕ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܒܦܨܚܐ ܒܥܕܥܕܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܗ ܕܚܙܘ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܕܥܒܕ
. And while Jesus was in Jerusalem for the Passover, many believed in his name when they saw the signs that he gave
24 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܢܦܫܗ ܡܛܠ ܕܗܘ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܠܢܫ
: But Jesus did not trust himself to them; because he knew them all
25 ܘܠܐ ܤܢܝܩ ܗܘܐ ܕܐܢܫ ܢܤܗܕ ܠܗ ܥܠ ܟܠ ܒܪܢܫ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܐ ܐܝܬ ܒܒܪܢܫܐ
. And he never needed evidence about any man; for he himself could tell what a man had in him

Chapter 3

 1 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܚܕ ܓܒܪܐ ܡܢ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܢܝܩܕܡܘܤ ܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܪܟܘܢܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ
. And there was a man of the Pharisees there, whose name was Nicodemus, a leading Jew
 2 ܗܢܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܪܒܝ ܝܕܥܝܢܢ ܕܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܫܬܕܪܬ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܢܫ ܡܫܟܚ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܕܐܢܬ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܥܡܗ
And he came to Jesus by night, and said to him: Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who comes from God; for no one could perform these signs which you do, unless God were with him
 3 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܕܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܡܬܝܠܕ ܡܢ ܕܪܝܫ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
 
. Jesus replied, and said to him: I say to you, Truly, Unless a man be born anew, he cannot see the Realm of God
 4 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܢܝܩܕܡܘܤ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܕܢܬܝܠܕ ܓܒܪܐ ܤܒܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܬܘܒ ܠܟܪܤܐ ܕܐܡܗ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܠܡܥܠ ܘܢܬܝܠܕ
 
? Nicodemus said to him: How can a grown man be born ? Can he go back into his mother's womb and be born anew
 5 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܕܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܡܬܝܠܕ ܡܢ ܡܝܐ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܕܢܥܘܠ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
 
Jesus replied, and said to him, I say to you, Truly, Unless a man be born through water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Realm of God
 6 ܡܕܡ ܕܝܠܝܕ ܡܢ ܒܤܪܐ ܒܤܪܐ ܗܘ ܘܡܕܡ ܕܝܠܝܕ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܗܘ
 
. What is born of the flesh, is flesh; and what is born of the Spirit, is spirit
 7 ܠܐ ܬܬܕܡܪ ܕܐܡܪܬ ܠܟ ܕܘܠܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܡܬܝܠܕܘ ܡܢ ܕܪܝܫ
 
Be not surprised when I say to you, You must be born anew.
 8 ܪܘܚܐ ܐܬܪ ܕܨܒܝܐ ܢܫܒܐ ܘܩܠܗ ܫܡܥ ܐܢܬ ܐܠܐ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܬ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܐܬܝܐ ܘܠܐܝܟܐ ܐܙܠܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܟܠܢܫ ܕܝܠܝܕ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܐ
 
The wind blows where ever it pleases; and you hear it's sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from, or where it goes: so it is with all who are born of the Spirit
 9 ܥܢܐ ܢܝܩܕܡܘܤ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܫܟܚܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܠܡܗܘܐ
 
? Nicodemus answered, and said to him: How can that be possible
10 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܡܠܦܢܗ ܕܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܘܗܠܝܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܬ
? Jesus answered, and said to him: Are you a teacher of Israel, and do not know these things
11 ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܡܕܡ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܡܤܗܕܝܢ ܐܢܚܢܢ ܘܤܗܕܘܬܢ ܠܐ ܡܩܒܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
. I say to you, Truly, We speak only about what we know; and witness to what we have seen; but you reject our evidence
12 ܐܢ ܕܒܐܪܥܐ ܐܡܪܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܐܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܬܗܝܡܢܘܢܢܝ
? If I speak to you of things of this world earth, and you do not believe me; how will you believe if I speak of heavenly things
13 ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܤܠܩ ܠܫܡܝܐ ܐܠܐ ܗܘ ܕܢܚܬ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܒܫܡܝܐ
. No one has gone up to heaven, except the one who came down from heaven, the Son of Man who is in heaven
14 ܘܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܪܝܡ ܡܘܫܐ ܚܘܝܐ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܠܡܬܬܪܡܘ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
: And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up
15 ܕܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܒܗ ܠܐ ܢܐܒܕ ܐܠܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܠܗ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
. that everyone who believes in him, may not be lost, but may have Eternal Life
16 ܗܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܚܒ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܥܠܡܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܠܒܪܗ ܝܚܝܕܝܐ ܢܬܠ ܕܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܒܗ ܠܐ ܢܐܒܕ ܐܠܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܠܗ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
For God so loved the world, that he gave his Son, the One-born [of him], that whosoever believes in him, may not be lost, but may have Eternal Life
17 ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܫܕܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܒܪܗ ܠܥܠܡܐ ܕܢܕܘܢܝܘܗܝ ܠܥܠܡܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܢܚܐ ܠܥܠܡܐ ܒܐܝܕܗ
For God sent not his Son into the world, to condemn the world; but so that through him the world might be saved. 
18 ܡܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܒܗ ܠܐ ܡܬܬܕܝܢ ܘܡܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܡܢ ܟܕܘ ܕܝܢ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܗܝܡܢ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܝܚܝܕܝܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
. He that believes in him is not condemned; but he that does not believe, is already condemned; for he has not believed on the name of the Son, the One-born of God
19 ܗܢܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܢܐ ܕܢܘܗܪܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܥܠܡܐ ܘܐܚܒܘ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܠܚܫܘܟܐ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܕܠܢܘܗܪܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܥܒܕܝܗܘܢ ܒܝܫܐ
And the judgment of condemnation is this, the light came into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, for their deeds were wicked
20 ܟܠ ܓܝܪ ܕܤܢܝܬܐ ܥܒܕ ܤܢܐ ܠܢܘܗܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܢܘܗܪܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܬܟܤܤܘܢ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ
. For every one who practices evil, hates the light, and comes not to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed
21 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܒܕ ܫܪܪܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܕܢܬܝܕܥܘܢ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܕܒܐܠܗܐ ܥܒܝܕܝܢ
. But he that acts in truth, comes into the light, to make clear that his deeds are done in God
22 ܒܬܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܬܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܠܐܪܥܐ ܕܝܗܘܕ ܘܬܡܢ ܡܬܗܦܟ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܡܥܡܕ
. Later then, Jesus and his disciples came into the land of Judaea; and there he stayed with them there baptizing
23 ܐܦ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܥܡܕ ܗܘܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܝܘܢ ܕܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܫܠܝܡ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܝܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܥܡܕܝܢ
. And John too was baptizing in Aenon, near Salim, where water was plentiful there: and the people came, and were baptized
24 ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܥܕܟܝܠ ܢܦܠ ܗܘܐ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ
. For John had not yet been thrown into prison
25 ܗܘܬ ܗܘܬ ܕܝܢ ܒܥܬܐ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܥܡ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܚܕ ܥܠ ܬܕܟܝܬܐ
. And a discussion arose between one of John's disciples and a Jew about purification
26 ܘܐܬܘ ܠܘܬ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܪܒܢ ܗܘ ܕܥܡܟ ܗܘܐ ܒܥܒܪܐ ܕܝܘܪܕܢܢ ܕܐܢܬ ܤܗܕܬ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܗܐ ܐܦ ܗܘ ܡܥܡܕ ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܘܬܗ
. And they came to John, and said to him: Our teacher, who was with you across the Jordan, and of whom you testify, is baptizing now; and many flock to him
27 ܥܢܐ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܠܡܤܒ ܡܢ ܨܒܘܬ ܢܦܫܗ ܡܕܡ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܐܬܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ
. John answered them: A man cannot take any thing by his own will, unless it is given him from heaven
28 ܐܢܬܘܢ ܤܗܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܕܐܡܪܬ ܕܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܠܐ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܩܕܡܘܗܝ
. You are witnesses for me, that I said: I am not the Messiah, I am sent before him
29 ܡܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܟܠܬܐ ܚܬܢܐ ܗܘ ܪܚܡܗ ܕܝܢ ܕܚܬܢܐ ܗܘ ܕܩܐܡ ܘܨܐܬ ܠܗ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܡܛܠ ܩܠܗ ܕܚܬܢܐ ܗܕܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܕܝܠܝ ܗܐ ܡܡܠܝܐ
. He that has the bride is the groom: the friend of the groom stands and listens to him, and is overjoyed to hear the groom's voice: that my joy, and it is complete
30 ܠܗܘ ܗܘ ܘܠܐ ܠܡܪܒܐ ܘܠܝ ܠܡܒܨܪ
He must increase, while I decrease.
31 ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܢ ܠܥܠ ܐܬܐ ܠܥܠ ܡܢ ܟܠ ܗܘ ܘܗܘ ܕܡܢ ܐܪܥܐ ܡܢ ܐܪܥܐ ܗܘ ܘܡܢ ܐܪܥܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܘ ܕܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܥܠ ܡܢ ܟܠ ܗܘ
For the One who comes from above, is above all; and the One who is of the earth is earthly, and speaks on a earthly plane. The One who comes from above, is above all
32 ܘܡܕܡ ܕܚܙܐ ܘܫܡܥ ܡܤܗܕ ܘܤܗܕܘܬܗ ܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܩܒܠ
. and testifies to what he has seen and heard, but no one accepts his testimony
33 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܩܒܠ ܤܗܕܘܬܗ ܚܬܡ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܫܪܝܪܐ ܗܘ
. But the one that accepts his testimony, certifies that God is true
34 ܐܝܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܫܕܪܗ ܡܠܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܟܝܠܐ ܝܗܒ ܐܠܗܐ ܪܘܚܐ
. For the One whom God has sent, speaks the words of God; he does not ration his gift of the Spirit
35 ܐܒܐ ܡܚܒ ܠܒܪܐ ܘܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܝܗܒ ܒܐܝܕܘܗܝ
. The Father loves the Son, and has given every thing over into his hands
36 ܡܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܒܒܪܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܘܡܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܛܦܝܤ ܠܒܪܐ ܠܐ ܢܚܙܐ ܚܝܐ ܐܠܐ ܪܘܓܙܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܢܩܘܐ ܥܠܘܗܝ
He that believes in the Son, has eternal life; but he who disobeys the Son, will not see life, but must endure the wrath of God

Chapter 4

 1 ܝܕܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܥܒܕ ܘܡܥܡܕ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ
 
. Now when Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that he was making and baptizing more disciples than John
 2 ܟܕ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܘ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܥܡܕ ܗܘܐ ܐܠܐ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
 
. Although Jesus himself did not baptize, but only his disciples
 3 ܘܫܒܩܗ ܠܝܗܘܕ ܘܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܬܘܒ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ
 
. And he left Judaea, and started back again for Galilee
 4 ܡܥܒܕܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܗ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܢܥܒܪ ܥܠ ܒܝܬ ܫܡܪܝܐ
 
. And he had to pass right through Samaria
 5 ܘܐܬܐ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܫܡܪܝܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܫܟܪ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܕܝܗܒ ܗܘܐ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܠܝܘܤܦ ܒܪܗ
 
. And he came to a town of Samaria called Sychar, near the field that Jacob gave to his son Joseph
 6 ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܡܥܝܢܐ ܕܡܝܐ ܕܝܥܩܘܒ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܥܡܠܐ ܕܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܥܠ ܡܥܝܢܐ ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܝ ܫܬ ܫܥܝܢ
 
And Jacob's well of water was there. And so Jesus, tired as he was from his journey, and sat down beside the well: and it was about noon
 7 ܘܐܬܬ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܪܝܢ ܕܬܡܠܐ ܡܝܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܗܒ ܠܝ ܡܝܐ ܐܫܬܐ
 
And a woman from Samaria came to draw water. And Jesus said to her: Give me water to drink.
 8 ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܓܝܪ ܥܠܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܢܙܒܢܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܤܝܒܪܬܐ
 
. And his disciples had gone off to town to buy provisions
 9 ܐܡܪܐ ܠܗ ܗܝ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܫܡܪܝܬܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܐܢܬ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܢܬ ܘܡܢܝ ܫܐܠ ܐܢܬ ܠܡܫܬܐ ܕܐܝܬܝ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܫܡܪܝܬܐ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܬܚܫܚܝܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܥܡ ܫܡܪܝܐ
. The Samaritan woman said to him: You are a Jew, how can you ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaria? For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans
10 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܠܘ ܝܕܥܐ ܗܘܝܬܝ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܡܢܘ ܗܢܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܠܟܝ ܗܒ ܠܝ ܐܫܬܐ ܐܢܬܝ ܫܐܠܐ ܗܘܝܬܝ ܠܗ ܘܝܗܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܝ ܡܝܐ ܚܝܐ
Jesus replied to her: If you recognized the gift of God, and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him instead, and he would have given you living water
11 ܐܡܪܐ ܠܗ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܗܝ ܡܪܝ ܠܐ ܕܘܠܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܟ ܘܒܪܐ ܥܡܝܩܐ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܠܟ ܡܝܐ ܚܝܐ
? The woman said to him: Sir, you do not have a bucket, and this well is deep, how have you flowing water
12 ܠܡܐ ܐܢܬ ܪܒ ܐܢܬ ܡܢ ܐܒܘܢ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܗܘ ܕܗܘ ܝܗܒ ܠܢ ܒܪܐ ܗܕܐ ܘܗܘ ܡܢܗ ܐܫܬܝ ܘܒܢܘܗܝ ܘܥܢܗ
? Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us this well, and drank from it himself, and his children, and his flocks
13 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܟܠ ܕܢܫܬܐ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܝܐ ܬܘܒ ܢܨܗܐ
; Jesus replied and said to her: Whoever drinks this water, will thirst again
14 ܟܠ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܫܬܐ ܡܢ ܡܝܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܬܠ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܢܨܗܐ ܠܥܠܡ ܐܠܐ ܡܝܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܗܒ ܐܢܐ ܠܗ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܒܗ ܡܥܝܢܐ ܕܡܝܐ ܕܢܒܥܝܢ ܠܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
but whoever drinks of the water which I give him, will never be thirsty; no, the water which I give, will become a fountain of waters within him, abounding up to Eternal Life
15 ܐܡܪܐ ܠܗ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܗܝ ܡܪܝ ܗܒ ܠܝ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܝܐ ܕܠܐ ܬܘܒ ܐܨܗܐ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܐܬܝܐ ܕܠܝܐ ܡܢ ܗܪܟܐ
. The woman said to him: Lord, give me of these waters, that I may not be thirsty again, and not have to come to draw from here
16 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܙܠܝ ܩܪܝ ܠܒܥܠܟܝ ܘܬܝ ܠܗܪܟܐ
. Jesus said to her: Go, call your husband, and then come back here
17 ܐܡܪܐ ܠܗ ܠܝܬ ܠܝ ܒܥܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܫܦܝܪ ܐܡܪܬܝ ܕܠܝܬ ܠܝ ܒܥܠܐ
; She said to him: I have no husband. Jesus said to her: You have said rightly, I have no husband
18 ܚܡܫܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܥܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܟܝ ܘܗܢܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܟܝ ܗܫܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܥܠܟܝ ܗܕܐ ܫܪܝܪܬܐ ܐܡܪܬܝ
. for you have had five husbands, and he whom you now have, is not your husband. What you said is true
19 ܐܡܪܐ ܠܗ ܗܝ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܡܪܝ ܚܙܝܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܐܢܬ
. The woman said to him: Sir, I can see you are a prophet
20 ܐܒܗܝܢ ܒܗܢܐ ܛܘܪܐ ܤܓܕܘ ܘܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܗܘ ܐܬܪ ܕܘܠܐ ܠܡܤܓܕ
Our ancestors worshipped on this mountain; but you people claim that Jerusalem is the place where it is proper to worship
21 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܗܝܡܢܝܢܝ ܕܐܬܝܐ ܫܥܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܒܗܢܐ ܛܘܪܐ ܘܐܦ ܠܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܬܤܓܕܘܢ ܠܐܒܐ
. Jesus said to her: Woman, believe me, the hour is coming, when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem
22 ܐܢܬܘܢ ܤܓܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܕܡ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܤܓܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܡܐ ܕܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܚܝܐ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ
. You people worship what you do not know; while we understand what we worship; for salvation is from the Jews
23 ܐܠܐ ܐܬܝܐ ܫܥܬܐ ܘܗܫܐ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܐܡܬܝ ܕܤܓܘܕܐ ܫܪܝܪܐ ܢܤܓܕܘܢ ܠܐܒܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܘܒܫܪܪܐ ܐܦ ܐܒܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܝܟ ܗܠܝܢ ܗܘ ܤܓܘܕܐ ܒܥܐ
Yet an hour is coming, and is already here, when the authentic worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeks just such worshippers
24 ܪܘܚܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܤܓܕܝܢ ܠܗ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܘܒܫܪܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܕܢܤܓܕܘܢ
. For God is Spirit; and those that worship him, must worship in spirit and in truth
25 ܐܡܪܐ ܠܗ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܗܝ ܝܕܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܬܐ ܘܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܗܘ ܡܠܦ ܠܢ ܟܠܡܕܡ
. The woman said to him: I know that there is a Messiah coming; and when he comes, he will tell us every thing
26 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܐ ܥܡܟܝ
. Jesus said to her: I, who talks to you, am he
27 ܘܟܕ ܡܡܠܠ ܐܬܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܡܬܕܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܥܡ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܠܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫ ܐܡܪ ܡܢܐ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܬ ܐܘ ܡܢܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܬ ܥܡܗ
? And while he was speaking, his disciples returned. And they wondered why he would speak with a woman; yet no one said, What do you want? or, Why do you talk with her
28 ܘܫܒܩܬ ܩܘܠܬܗ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܘܐܙܠܬ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܠܐܢܫܐ
: And the woman left her water jar, and went to the town, and said to the people
29 ܬܘ ܚܙܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܥܒܕܬ ܠܡܐ ܗܘܝܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ
Come, see a man that told me everything I ever did: is this not the Messiah ?
30 ܘܢܦܩܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܘܬܗ
. And the people set out from town, and came to meet him
31 ܘܒܝܢܬ ܗܠܝܢ ܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܪܒܢ ܠܥܤ
. Meanwhile, his disciples urged him, and said to him: Teacher, eat something
32 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܡܐܟܘܠܬܐ ܕܐܟܘܠ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
. But he told them: I have food to eat, of which you do not know
33 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܒܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܠܡܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܝܬܝ ܠܗ ܡܕܡ ܠܡܐܟܠ
? The disciples said to one another: Has someone else brought him something to eat
34 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܐܟܘܠܬܝ ܕܝܠܝ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܕܐܥܒܕ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܡܢ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ ܘܐܫܠܡܝܘܗܝ ܠܥܒܕܗ
. Jesus said to them: My food is to do the will of him that sent me, and to complete his work
35 ܠܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܒܬܪ ܐܪܒܥܐ ܝܪܚܝܢ ܐܬܐ ܚܨܕܐ ܗܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܪܝܡܘ ܥܝܢܝܟܘܢ ܘܚܙܘ ܐܪܥܬܐ ܕܚܘܪ ܘܡܛܝ ܠܚܨܕܐ ܡܢ ܟܕܘ
Do you not have a saying, four months more and then the harvest? Listen to what I say, and open your eyes, and see the fields are bright, ready to harvest
36 ܘܐܝܢܐ ܕܚܨܕ ܐܓܪܐ ܢܤܒ ܘܟܢܫ ܦܐܪܐ ܠܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܘܙܪܘܥܐ ܘܚܨܘܕܐ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܢܚܕܘܢ
. And he that reaps, collects his wages, and gathers a yield for Eternal Life; and the sower and the reaper may rejoice together
37 ܒܗܕܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܫܪܪܐ ܕܐܚܪܝܢ ܗܘ ܙܪܥ ܘܐܚܪܝܢ ܚܨܕ
. For in this, the is proverb true, that one sows, and another reaps
38 ܐܢܐ ܫܕܪܬܟܘܢ ܠܡܚܨܕ ܡܕܡ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐܝܬܘܢ ܒܗ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܐܝܘ ܘܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܠܬܘܢ ܥܠ ܥܡܠܗܘܢ ܕܗܢܘܢ
. I sent you to reap what you had not worked for: others have done the labor, and you have come into their gain
39 ܡܢ ܗܝ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܗ ܫܡܪܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܐܢܬܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܡܤܗܕܐ ܗܘܬ ܕܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܟܠܡܕܡ ܕܥܒܕܬ
. And many Samaritans from that town believed in him, on the strength of the woman's words who testified, He told me everything I ever did
40 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܗܢܘܢ ܫܡܪܝܐ ܒܥܘ ܡܢܗ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܗܘܐ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܝܘܡܝܢ
. And when these Samaritans came to him, they begged him to stay with them; and he stayed there with them for two days
41 ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܗ ܡܛܠ ܡܠܬܗ
. And many believed on him, through his own spoken word
42 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐܢܬܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܡܟܝܠ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܛܠ ܡܠܬܟܝ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܒܗ ܚܢܢ ܓܝܪ ܫܡܥܢ ܘܝܕܥܢ ܕܗܢܘ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܚܝܢܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ
And they said to the woman: From now on we believe in him, not on account of your word; for we have heard him ourselves, and we know that he truly is the Messiah, the Savior of the world
43 ܘܒܬܪ ܬܪܝܢ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܢܦܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܘܐܙܠ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ
. And after two days Jesus left from there and went into Galilee
44 ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܤܗܕ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܗ ܠܐ ܡܬܝܩܪ
. For Jesus himself had declared, that a prophet is not respected in his own region
45 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܐ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ ܩܒܠܘܗܝ ܓܠܝܠܝܐ ܕܚܙܘ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܟܠ ܕܥܒܕ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܒܥܕܥܕܐ ܐܬܘ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܘܐܦ ܗܢܘܢ ܠܥܕܥܕܐ
And when he came to Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him, having seen all the signs which he performed in Jerusalem during the celebration, which they too had attended
46 ܐܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܬܘܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܩܛܢܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܡܝܐ ܚܡܪܐ ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ ܥܒܕ ܡܠܟܐ ܚܕ ܕܒܪܗ ܟܪܝܗ ܗܘܐ
And Jesus went again to Cana in Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was at Capernaum a court official, whose son was ill
47 ܗܢܐ ܫܡܥ ܕܐܬܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܐܙܠ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܗ ܕܢܚܘܬ ܘܢܐܤܐ ܠܒܪܗ ܩܪܝܒ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܡܡܬ
He heard that Jesus had come from Judaea to Galilee; and he went to him, and begged him to come down and heal his son; for he was near death
48 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܬܕܡܪܬܐ ܠܐ ܬܚܙܘܢ ܠܐ ܬܗܝܡܢܘܢ
. Jesus said to him: Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will not believe
49 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܘ ܥܒܕ ܡܠܟܐ ܡܪܝ ܚܘܬ ܥܕܠܐ ܡܐܬ ܠܗ ܛܠܝܐ
The court official said to him: Sir, come down, before my child dies.
50 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܙܠ ܒܪܟ ܚܝ ܗܘ ܘܗܝܡܢ ܗܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܙܠ
. Jesus said to him: Go, your son will live. And the man believed the word which Jesus spoke to him, and went away
51 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܢܚܬ ܗܘܐ ܐܪܥܘܗܝ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܘܤܒܪܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܒܪܟ ܚܝܐ
. And as he was on his way down, his servants met him with the news and said to him: Your son is going to live
52 ܘܫܐܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܥܕܢܐ ܐܬܚܠܡ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܬܡܠܝ ܒܫܒܥ ܫܥܝܢ ܫܒܩܬܗ ܐܫܬܐ
. And he asked them, at what time he had improved. And they said to him: Yesterday afternoon at one, the fever left him
53 ܘܝܕܥ ܐܒܘܗܝ ܕܒܗܝ ܫܥܬܐ ܕܒܗ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܒܪܟ ܚܝܐ ܘܗܝܡܢ ܗܘ ܘܒܝܬܗ ܟܠܗ
And his father realized that it was at that time when Jesus had said to him, Your son will live. And he and his whole household believed
54 ܗܕܐ ܬܘܒ ܐܬܐ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܥܒܕ ܝܫܘܥ ܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ
. This was the second sign that Jesus performed, on his return from Judaea to Galilee

Chapter 5

 1 ܒܬܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܗܘܐ ܥܕܥܕܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܤܠܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
 
. Some time after this there was a Jewish festival, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem
 2 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܕܘܟܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܥܒܪܐܝܬ ܒܝܬ ܚܤܕܐ ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܚܡܫܐ ܐܤܛܘܝܢ
 
. And there was a certain place of baptism in Jerusalem, which was called Bethesda in Hebrew; consisting of five porches
 3 ܘܒܗܠܝܢ ܪܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܟܪܝܗܐ ܘܤܡܝܐ ܘܚܓܝܤܐ ܘܝܒܝܫܐ ܘܡܤܟܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܙܘܥܐ ܕܡܝܐ
 
. And in them were laid a large crowd of the sick, and the blind, and the lame, and the paralyzed, waiting for the waters to stir
 4 ܡܠܐܟܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܙܒܢ ܙܒܢ ܢܚܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܠܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܘܡܙܝܥ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܝܐ ܘܐܝܢܐ ܕܩܕܡܝܐ ܢܚܬ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܙܘܥܐ ܕܡܝܐ ܡܬܚܠܡ ܗܘܐ ܟܠ ܟܐܒܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ
 
For an angel, from time to time, came down into the pool, and stirred the waters; and whoever went in first, after the motion of the waters, was cured of whatever ailment he had
 5 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܕܬܠܬܝܢ ܘܬܡܢܐ ܫܢܝܢ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܘܪܗܢܐ
 
. And one man there had been with illness for thirty eight years
 6 ܠܗܢܐ ܚܙܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܪܡܐ ܘܝܕܥ ܕܙܒܢܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܕܬܬܚܠܡ
 
? And Jesus saw him lying there, and knew he had been in this condition for a long time, and said to him: Do you want to be well again
 7 ܥܢܐ ܗܘ ܟܪܝܗܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܝܢ ܡܪܝ ܠܝܬ ܠܝ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫ ܕܡܐ ܕܐܬܬܙܝܥܘ ܡܝܐ ܢܪܡܝܢܝ ܒܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܥܕ ܐܢܐ ܐܬܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܚܪܝܢ ܡܢ ܩܕܡܝ ܢܚܬ
 
And the sick man answered: Yes, Sir; but I have no one who will put me into the pool, when the water are stirred, and while I am on the way, someone else gets there before me
 8 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܘܡ ܫܩܘܠ ܥܪܤܟ ܘܗܠܟ
 
. Jesus said to him: Get up, pick up your sleeping mat, and walk
 9 ܘܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܐܬܚܠܡ ܓܒܪܐ ܗܘ ܘܩܡ ܫܩܠ ܥܪܤܗ ܘܗܠܟ ܘܗܘ ܗܘ ܝܘܡܐ ܫܒܬܐ ܗܘܬ
 
. And immediately the man was healed; and he got up, picked up his mat, and walked away; now it was the Sabbath day then
10 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܠܗܘ ܕܐܬܐܤܝ ܫܒܬܐ ܗܝ ܠܐ ܫܠܝܛ ܠܟ ܕܬܫܩܘܠ ܥܪܤܟ
. And the Jews said to him who had been healed: It is the Sabbath; it is not allowed for you to carry your sleeping mat
11 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܘ ܕܥܒܕܢܝ ܚܠܝܡܐ ܗܘ ܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܕܫܩܘܠ ܥܪܤܟ ܘܗܠܟ
. But he answered them: He who restored me, told me, Pick up your mat and walk
12 ܘܫܐܠܘܗܝ ܡܢܘ ܗܢܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܠܟ ܕܫܩܘܠ ܥܪܤܟ ܘܗܠܟ
? And they asked him: Who is the man who told you, Pick up your mat and walk
13 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܬܐܤܝ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܘ ܝܫܘܥ ܓܝܪ ܐܬܓܢܝ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܒܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܕܘܟܬܐ ܗܝ
. But the man had no idea who it was that had healed him; for Jesus had disappeared into the large crowd that filled the place
14 ܒܬܪ ܙܒܢ ܐܫܟܚܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܐ ܚܠܝܡ ܐܢܬ ܬܘܒ ܠܐ ܬܚܛܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܡܕܡ ܕܒܝܫ ܡܢ ܩܕܡܝܐ
After awhile, Jesus met him in the temple, and said to him: Now you are healed; do not sin again, or something worse than before may happen to you
15 ܘܐܙܠ ܗܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܗܘ ܗܘ ܕܐܚܠܡܗ
. And the man went back and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had cured him
16 ܘܡܛܠ ܗܕܐ ܪܕܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܩܛܠܗ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ ܒܫܒܬܐ
. And for this reason the Jews persecuted Jesus, and wanted to kill him; because he did these things on the Sabbath
17 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܒܝ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܫܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ
. But Jesus said to them: My Father goes on working, and so do I
18 ܘܡܛܠ ܗܕܐ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܠܡܩܛܠܗ ܠܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܕܫܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܫܒܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܕܥܠ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܒܘܗܝ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܫܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܢܦܫܗ ܥܡ ܐܠܗܐ
And for this, the Jews were intent on killing him, because, not only had he broken the Sabbath, he had spoke of God as his Father, and so made himself God's equal
19 ܥܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܒܪܐ ܥܒܕ ܡܕܡ ܡܢ ܨܒܘܬ ܢܦܫܗ ܐܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܚܙܐ ܠܐܒܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܒܐ ܥܒܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܦ ܒܪܐ ܐܟܘܬܗ ܥܒܕ
And Jesus answered them: Truly, truly, I say to you: The Son can do nothing of his own will, but only what he sees the Father do: for whatever the Father does, the Son does too
20 ܐܒܐ ܓܝܪ ܪܚܡ ܠܒܪܗ ܘܟܠܡܕܡ ܕܥܒܕ ܡܚܘܐ ܠܗ ܘܕܝܬܝܪܝܢ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܥܒܕܐ ܡܚܘܐ ܠܗ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܬܕܡܪܘܢ
. For the Father loves his Son, and shows him every thing he does: and will he show him greater works than these, that will astonish you
21 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܒܐ ܡܩܝܡ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܡܚܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܒܪܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܡܚܐ
. For as the Father raises the dead, and gives Life to them; so also the Son gives Life to whom he chooses
22 ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܒܐ ܕܐܢ ܠܐܢܫ ܐܠܐ ܟܠܗ ܕܝܢܐ ܝܗܒܗ ܠܒܪܐ
: For the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son
23 ܕܟܠܢܫ ܢܝܩܪ ܠܒܪܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܡܝܩܪ ܠܐܒܐ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܡܝܩܪ ܠܒܪܐ ܠܐ ܡܝܩܪ ܠܐܒܐ ܕܫܕܪܗ
. that every man may honor the Son, as he honors the Father. He that does not honor the Son, does not honor the Father that sent him
24 ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܕܫܡܥ ܡܠܬܝ ܘܡܗܝܡܢ ܠܡܢ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ ܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܘܠܕܝܢܐ ܠܐ ܐܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܫܢܝ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܡܘܬܐ ܠܚܝܐ
Truly, truly, I tell you, That whoever listens to my words, and believes in the One who sent me, has Eternal Life, without being brought to judgment, he has passed from death to life
25 ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܬܝܐ ܫܥܬܐ ܐܦ ܗܫܐ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܐܡܬܝ ܕܡܝܬܐ ܢܫܡܥܘܢ ܩܠܗ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܕܫܡܥܝܢ ܢܚܘܢ
Truly, truly, I tell you, The hour will come, and even now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and to all who hear it, will live
26 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܐܒܐ ܐܝܬ ܚܝܐ ܒܩܢܘܡܗ ܗܟܢܐ ܝܗܒ ܐܦ ܠܒܪܐ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܚܝܐ ܒܩܢܘܡܗ
: For as the Father is the source of Life, so thus too, he gives that the Son may be the source of Life
27 ܘܐܫܠܛܗ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܦ ܕܝܢܐ ܕܒܪܗ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܢܫܐ
, and has moreover appointed him to carry out judgment because he is, as well, the Son of Man
28  ܠܐ ܬܬܕܡܪܘܢ ܒܗܕܐ ܕܐܬܝܐ ܫܥܬܐ ܐܡܬܝ ܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܩܒܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܢܫܡܥܘܢ ܩܠܗ
; Do not be surprised at this; for the hour comes when all who are in their graves will hear his voice
29 ܘܢܦܩܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܒܕܘ ܛܒܬܐ ܠܩܝܡܬܐ ܕܚܝܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܒܕܘ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܠܩܝܡܬܐ ܕܕܝܢܐ
. and will come forth; those that did good will rise again to life, and those that did evil, will rise to judgment
30 ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܐ ܡܕܡ ܡܢ ܨܒܘܬ ܢܦܫܝ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܫܡܥ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܢ ܐܢܐ ܘܕܝܢܝ ܟܐܝܢ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܨܒܝܢܝ ܐܠܐ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܡܢ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ
I can do nothing of my own will; but as I hear, so I judge. And my judgment is just; for I seek not my own will, but the will of him that sent me
31 ܐܢ ܐܢܐ ܡܤܗܕ ܐܢܐ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܝ ܤܗܕܘܬܝ ܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܫܪܝܪܐ
. If I were to testify on my own behalf, my testimony would not be valid
32 ܐܚܪܝܢ ܗܘ ܗܘ ܕܡܤܗܕ ܥܠܝ ܘܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܕܫܪܝܪܐ ܗܝ ܤܗܕܘܬܗ ܕܡܤܗܕ ܥܠܝ
. There is another witness who speaks on my behalf; and I know that his testimony on my behalf is true
33 ܐܢܬܘܢ ܫܕܪܬܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܤܗܕ ܥܠ ܫܪܪܐ
. You sent to John; and he gave his testimony to the truth.
34 ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܢܤܒ ܐܢܐ ܤܗܕܘܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܚܘܢ
. Not that I depend on testimony from men: but I speak these things for your salvation
35 ܗܘ ܫܪܓܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܕܠܩ ܘܡܢܗܪ ܘܐܢܬܘܢ ܨܒܝܬܘܢ ܕܬܫܬܒܗܪܘܢ ܕܫܥܬܐ ܒܢܘܗܪܗ
. He was a lamp alight and shining; and for a time you were content to glory in his light
36 ܠܝ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܤܗܕܘܬܐ ܕܪܒܐ ܡܢ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܥܒܕܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܝܗܒ ܠܝ ܐܒܝ ܕܐܫܠܡ ܐܢܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܤܗܕܝܢ ܥܠܝ ܕܐܒܐ ܫܠܚܢܝ
But my testimony, is greater than John's; for the works my Father has given me to carry out, these works of mine testify that the Father has sent me
37 ܘܐܒܐ ܕܫܠܚܢܝ ܗܘ ܤܗܕ ܥܠܝ ܠܐ ܩܠܗ ܡܡܬܘܡ ܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܚܙܘܗ ܚܙܝܬܘܢ
. And the Father who sent me, bears witness to me. You have never heard his voice, nor have you seen his aspect
38 ܘܡܠܬܗ ܠܐ ܡܩܘܝܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܒܗܘ ܕܗܘ ܫܕܪ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
. And his word find no home in you, because you do not believe in him whom he has sent
39 ܒܨܘ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܒܗܘܢ ܡܤܒܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܤܗܕܝܢ ܥܠܝ
. You study the scriptures; for you think in them there is eternal life for you; and they testify to me
40 ܘܠܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܬܐܬܘܢ ܠܘܬܝ ܕܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ
. And yet you refuse to come to me, that eternal life may be yours
41 ܫܘܒܚܐ ܡܢ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܠܐ ܢܤܒ ܐܢܐ
. I do not get approval from men
42 ܐܠܐ ܝܕܥܬܟܘܢ ܕܚܘܒܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܝܬ ܒܟܘܢ
. Besides, I know you well, you have no love of God in you
43 ܐܢܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܐܒܝ ܘܠܐ ܡܩܒܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܘܐܢ ܐܚܪܝܢ ܢܐܬܐ ܒܫܡ ܢܦܫܗ ܠܗܘ ܬܩܒܠܘܢ
. I have come in the name of my Father, and you do not accept me: if another comes in his own name, you will accept him
44 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܗܝܡܢܘ ܕܫܘܒܚܐ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܚܕ ܡܩܒܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܫܘܒܚܐ ܕܡܢ ܚܕ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
? How can you believe, who look for approval from one another, and do not seek the approval which comes from God alone
45 ܠܡܐ ܤܒܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܟܠ ܐܢܐ ܩܪܨܝܟܘܢ ܩܕܡ ܐܒܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܡܢ ܕܐܟܠ ܩܪܨܝܟܘܢ ܡܘܫܐ ܗܘ ܕܒܗ ܤܒܪܬܘܢ
. Do you imagine that I will accuse you before the Father ? There is one that will accuse you, the very Moses on whom you rely
46 ܐܠܘ ܓܝܪ ܒܡܘܫܐ ܗܝܡܢܬܘܢ ܐܦ ܒܝ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܡܘܫܐ ܓܝܪ ܥܠܝ ܟܬܒ
. For, if you believed Moses, you would believe me, too; for it was I that Moses wrote about
47 ܘܐܢ ܠܟܬܒܘܗܝ ܕܗܘ ܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܠܡܠܝ ܕܝܠܝ ܬܗܝܡܢܘܢ
? But if you refuse to believe his writings, how will you believe my words
