Chapter 6

 1 ܒܬܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܙܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܥܒܪܐ ܕܝܡܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ ܕܛܒܪܝܘܤ
 
. After this, Jesus went off to the other side of the sea of Galilee - or of Tiberias
 2 ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܒܟܪܝܗܐ
 
. And large crowds followed him, impressed by the miracles he performed upon the sick
 3 ܘܤܠܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܘܬܡܢ ܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܡ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
 
. And Jesus climbed the hillside, and he sat down there with his disciples
 4 ܩܪܝܒ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܥܕܥܕܐ ܕܦܨܚܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ
 
. And the feast of the Jewish Passover was approaching
 5 ܘܐܪܝܡ ܥܝܢܘܗܝ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܚܙܐ ܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܢܙܒܢ ܠܚܡܐ ܕܢܐܟܠܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ
 
? And Jesus looked up, and saw a vast crowd coming towards him; and he said to Philip: where can we buy bread for them to eat
 6 ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܟܕ ܡܢܤܐ ܠܗ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܠܡܥܒܕ
 
. And he said this to test him; for he knew what he was going to do
 7 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܕܡܐܬܝܢ ܕܝܢܪܝܢ ܠܚܡܐ ܠܐ ܤܦܩ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܩܠܝܠ ܩܠܝܠ ܚܕ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܢܤܒ
 
. Philip said to him: Two hundred denarii in bread would only be enough to give them each a small piece
 8 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܢܕܪܐܘܤ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ
 
: One of his disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Kephas, said to him
 9 ܐܝܬ ܬܢܢ ܛܠܝܐ ܚܕ ܕܐܝܬ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܚܡܫ ܓܪܝܨܢ ܕܤܥܪܐ ܘܬܪܝܢ ܢܘܢܝܢ ܐܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܢܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ
 
? There is a boy here, who has with him five loaves of barley, and two fish, but what is that for all these people
10 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܒܕܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܤܬܡܟܘܢ ܥܤܒܐ ܕܝܢ ܤܓܝ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܒܕܘܟܬܐ ܗܝ ܘܐܤܬܡܟܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܒܡܢܝܢܐ ܚܡܫܐ ܐܠܦܝܢ
. Jesus said to them: Make all the people sit down. Now there was plenty of grass there, and the people who sat down numbered five thousand
11 ܘܫܩܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܚܡܐ ܘܒܪܟ ܘܦܠܓ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܤܡܝܟܝܢ ܘܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܡܢ ܢܘܢܐ ܟܡܐ ܕܨܒܘ
. And Jesus took the bread, and blessed it, and gave it out to those sitting. And so too, with the fish, as much as they wanted
12 ܘܟܕ ܤܒܥܘ ܐܡܪ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܟܢܫܘ ܩܨܝܐ ܕܝܬܪܘ ܕܠܐ ܢܐܒܕ ܡܕܡ
. And when they had enough, he said to his disciples: Gather up the pieces which are left over, so that nothing gets wasted
13 ܘܟܢܫܘ ܘܡܠܘ ܬܪܥܤܪ ܩܘܦܝܢܝܢ ܩܨܝܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܬܪܘ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܟܠܘ ܡܢ ܚܡܫܐ ܠܚܡܝܢ ܕܤܥܪܐ
And they picked them up and filled twelve baskets with pieces of what was left over from those that had eaten the five loaves barley
14 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܕܚܙܘ ܐܬܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܗܢܘ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܥܠܡܐ
. And those people seeing the sign which Jesus had performed, said: Surely this is that prophet who was to come into the world
15 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܕܥܬܝܕܝܢ ܕܢܐܬܘܢ ܢܚܛܦܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܢܥܒܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܫܢܝ ܠܗ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܗܘ ܒܠܚܘܕܘܗܝ
. And Jesus, who knew they were about to come and carry him off and make him king, escaped alone into the hills
16 ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܪܡܫܐ ܢܚܬܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܠܝܡܐ
, And when it was evening, his disciples went down to the sea
17 ܘܝܬܒܘ ܒܤܦܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܥܒܪܐ ܠܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ ܘܚܫܟܬ ܗܘܬ ܠܗ ܘܠܐ ܐܬܝ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ
. and got in a boat to cross to Capernaum. And it was now getting dark, and Jesus had still not rejoined them
18 ܝܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܙܕܩܦ ܗܘܐ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܢܫܒܬ ܗܘܬ
. And the sea now swelled against them from a strong wind that was blowing
19 ܘܕܒܪܘ ܐܝܟ ܐܤܛܕܘܬܐ ܥܤܪܝܢ ܘܚܡܫܐ ܐܘ ܬܠܬܝܢ ܘܚܙܘ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܟܕ ܡܗܠܟ ܥܠ ܝܡܬܐ ܘܟܕ ܩܪܒ ܠܘܬ ܤܦܝܢܬܗܘܢ ܕܚܠܘ
And they had gone about three or four miles, when they sighted Jesus walking upon the sea, and as he approached the boat, they were frightened
20 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠܘܢ
. But Jesus told them: It is I; do not be afraid
21 ܘܨܒܘ ܗܘܘ ܕܢܩܒܠܘܢܝܗܝ ܒܤܦܝܢܬܐ ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܤܦܝܢܬܐ ܗܝ ܗܘܬ ܠܘܬ ܐܪܥܐ ܗܝ ܕܐܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
. And they wanted to take him into the boat. And, suddenly, the boat came aground to where they were headed
22 ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܒܬܪܗ ܗܘ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܩܐܡ ܗܘܐ ܒܥܒܪܐ ܕܝܡܐ ܚܙܘ ܕܤܦܝܢܬܐ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܗܝ ܕܤܠܩܘ ܠܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܕܠܐ ܥܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܡ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܠܤܦܝܢܬܐ
And the next day, the crowd, who had remained on the other side of the sea, saw that there wasn't any other boat there, but the one which the disciples had set out on, and that Jesus had not left in it with his disciples
23 ܐܬܝ ܗܘܝ ܕܝܢ ܐܠܦܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܡܢ ܛܒܪܝܘܤ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܕܘܟܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܐܟܠܘ ܒܗ ܠܚܡܐ ܟܕ ܒܪܟ ܝܫܘܥ
. Then some boats came out from Tiberias, near to the place where they had eaten the bread after Jesus had blessed it
24 ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܗܘ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܦܠܐ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܤܠܩܘ ܠܗܠܝܢ ܐܠܦܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܠܝܫܘܥ
And when the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they too embarked in boats, and went to Capernaum, looking for Jesus
25 ܘܟܕ ܐܫܟܚܘܗܝ ܒܥܒܪܐ ܕܝܡܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܪܒܢ ܐܡܬܝ ܐܬܝܬ ܠܗܪܟܐ
? And when they found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him: Teacher, when did you come you here
26 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܒܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܚܙܝܬܘܢ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܐܟܠܬܘܢ ܠܚܡܐ ܘܤܒܥܬܘܢ
Jesus answered them: Truly, truly, I say to you, You look for me not because you saw the signs, but because you ate the bread and were filled
27 ܠܐ ܬܦܠܚܘܢ ܡܐܟܘܠܬܐ ܕܐܒܕܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܐܟܘܠܬܐ ܕܡܩܘܝܐ ܠܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܢܬܠ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܗܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܒܐ ܚܬܡ ܐܠܗܐ
Do not work for the food that is perishable, but for the food that remains unto Eternal Life, which the Son of Man will give to you, for on him has God the Father set the seal
28 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܢܐ ܢܥܒܕ ܕܢܦܠܘܚ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
? They said to him: What must we do, in order to perform the works of God
29 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܢܘ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܬܗܝܡܢܘܢ ܒܡܢ ܕܗܘ ܫܕܪ
. Jesus replied to them: This is the work of God, that you have faith in him whom he sent
30 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܢܐ ܐܬܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܘܢܗܝܡܢ ܒܟ ܡܢܐ ܤܥܪ ܐܢܬ
? They say to him: What sign will you do, that we may see and put faith in you? What is the work you do
31 ܐܒܗܝܢ ܡܢܢܐ ܐܟܠܘ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܠܚܡܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܐܟܠ
. Our fathers ate the manna, in the desert; as is so written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat
32 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܝܗܒ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܚܡܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܒܝ ܝܗܒ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܚܡܐ ܕܩܘܫܬܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ
Jesus said to them: Truly, truly, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave you bread from heaven; but my Father who gives you the real bread from heaven
33 ܠܚܡܗ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘ ܕܢܚܬ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܝܗܒ ܚܝܐ ܠܥܠܡܐ
. For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven, and gives Life to the world
34 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܪܢ ܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܗܒ ܠܢ ܠܚܡܐ ܗܢܐ
. They say to him: Our Lord, give us this bread always
35 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܚܡܐ ܕܚܝܐ ܡܢ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܝ ܠܐ ܢܟܦܢ ܘܡܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܒܝ ܠܐ ܢܨܗܐ ܠܥܠܡ
. Jesus said to them: I am the bread of Life: he that comes to me will not hunger; and he who believes in me will not ever thirst
36 ܐܠܐ ܐܡܪܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܚܙܝܬܘܢܢܝ ܘܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
. But as I told you, Though you have seen me, you still do not believe
37 ܟܠ ܕܝܗܒ ܠܝ ܐܒܝ ܠܘܬܝ ܢܐܬܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܠܘܬܝ ܢܐܬܐ ܠܐ ܐܦܩܗ ܠܒܪ
. All that my Father gives me will come to me: and he who comes to me, I will not turn away
38 ܕܢܚܬܬ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܐܥܒܕ ܨܒܝܢܝ ܐܠܐ ܕܐܥܒܕ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܡܢ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ
. For I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of Him that sent me
39 ܗܢܘ ܕܝܢ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܡܢ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ ܕܟܠ ܕܝܗܒ ܠܝ ܠܐ ܐܘܒܕ ܡܢܗ ܐܠܐ ܐܩܝܡܝܘܗܝ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܝܐ
And this is the will of Him that sent me, that I should lose nothing of what He has given me, rather, that I should raise it up on the last day
40 ܗܢܘ ܓܝܪ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܒܝ ܕܟܠ ܕܚܙܐ ܠܒܪܐ ܘܡܗܝܡܢ ܒܗ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܠܗ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܘܐܢܐ ܐܩܝܡܝܘܗܝ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܝܐ
For this is the will of my Father, that every one who sees the Son, and believes in him, should have Eternal Life; and I will raise him up at the last day
41 ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܪܛܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܚܡܐ ܕܢܚܬܬ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ
. Then the Jews murmured at him, because he said: I am the bread that came down from heaven
42 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܪܗ ܕܝܘܤܦ ܗܘ ܕܚܢܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܘܠܐܡܗ ܘܐܝܟܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܗܢܐ ܕܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܢܚܬܬ
? And they said: Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? And how can he say: I came down from heaven
43 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܬܪܛܢܘܢ ܚܕ ܥܡ ܚܕ
. Jesus told them: Stop murmuring to one another
44 ܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܫܟܚ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܝ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܢܓܕܗ ܐܒܐ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ ܘܐܢܐ ܐܩܝܡܝܘܗܝ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܝܐ
. No man can come to me, unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day
45 ܟܬܝܒ ܓܝܪ ܒܢܒܝܐ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܡܠܦܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܫܡܥ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܢ ܐܒܐ ܘܝܠܦ ܡܢܗ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܝ
For it is written in the prophets: And they will all be taught by God. Whoever has heard from the Father, and learned from Him, comes to me
46 ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܚܙܐ ܐܢܫ ܠܐܒܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘ ܗܘ ܚܙܐ ܠܐܒܐ
. Not that any one has seen the Father - only him who has come from God; it is he whom has seen the Father
47 ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܒܝ ܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
. Truly, truly, I say to you: For him who believes in me there is Eternal Life
48 ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܚܡܐ ܕܚܝܐ
. I am the bread of Life
49 ܐܒܗܝܟܘܢ ܐܟܠܘ ܡܢܢܐ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܘܡܝܬܘ
. Your fathers ate the manna in the desert, and they died
50 ܗܢܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܚܡܐ ܕܢܚܬ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܕܢܐܟܘܠ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܗ ܘܠܐ ܢܡܘܬ
. But this is the bread which comes from heaven, for a man to eat of, and not die
51 ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܚܡܐ ܚܝܐ ܕܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܢܚܬܬ ܘܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܢܐܟܘܠ ܡܢ ܗܢܐ ܠܚܡܐ ܢܚܐ ܠܥܠܡ ܘܠܚܡܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܬܠ ܦܓܪܝ ܗܘ ܕܥܠ ܐܦܝ ܚܝܘܗܝ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܝܗܒ ܐܢܐ
I am the bread of Life, who has come down from heaven: and if a man eats this bread, he will live for ever. And the bread which I shall give, is my body, which I give for the Life of the world
52 ܢܨܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܚܕ ܥܡ ܚܕ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܗܢܐ ܦܓܪܗ ܕܢܬܠ ܠܢ ܠܡܐܟܠ
? Then the Jews quarreled with one another, and said: How can he give us his body to eat
53 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܠܐ ܬܐܟܠܘܢ ܦܓܪܗ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܘܬܫܬܘܢ ܕܡܗ ܠܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܚܝܐ ܒܩܢܘܡܟܘܢ
And Jesus said to them: Truly, truly, I say to you, That, unless you eat the body of the Son of Man, and drink his blood, you have no Life in you
54 ܡܢ ܕܐܟܠ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܦܓܪܝ ܘܫܬܐ ܡܢ ܕܡܝ ܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܘܐܢܐ ܐܩܝܡܝܘܗܝ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܝܐ
. But he that eats of my body, and drinks of my blood, to him is Eternal Life; and I will raise him up at the last day
55 ܦܓܪܝ ܓܝܪ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܡܐܟܘܠܬܐ ܘܕܡܝ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܡܫܬܝܐ
. For my body is real food, and my blood is real drink
56 ܡܢ ܕܐܟܠ ܦܓܪܝ ܘܫܬܐ ܕܡܝ ܒܝ ܡܩܘܐ ܘܐܢܐ ܒܗ
. He that feeds on my body, and drinks my blood, remains in me, and I in him
57 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ ܐܒܐ ܚܝܐ ܘܐܢܐ ܚܝ ܐܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܐܒܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܢܐܟܠܢܝ ܐܦ ܗܘ ܢܚܐ ܡܛܠܬܝ
. As the Living Father has sent me, and I live because of the Father; so he that shall feed on me, he also will live because of me
58 ܗܢܘ ܠܚܡܐ ܕܢܚܬ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܟܠܘ ܐܒܗܝܟܘܢ ܡܢܢܐ ܘܡܝܬܘ ܡܢ ܕܐܟܠ ܗܢܐ ܠܚܡܐ ܢܚܐ ܠܥܠܡ
. This is the bread that came down from heaven: unlike your fathers who ate the manna, and died; whoever shall feed on this bead, will live forever
59 ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܟܕ ܡܠܦ ܒܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ
. These things he spoke in the congregation, while teaching at  Capernaum
60 ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܡܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܩܫܝܐ ܗܝ ܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܡܢܘ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܫܡܥܗ
. And many of his disciples who heard him, said: This is difficult language for those listening to it
61 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܒܢܦܫܗ ܕܪܛܢܝܢ ܥܠ ܗܕܐ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܕܐ ܡܟܫܠܐ ܠܟܘܢ
? And Jesus was aware that his disciples were so murmuring at this; and he said to them, does this upset you
62 ܐܢ ܬܚܙܘܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܠܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܕܤܠܩ ܠܐܬܪ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ
! What then, if you were to see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before
63 ܪܘܚܐ ܗܝ ܕܡܚܝܐ ܦܓܪܐ ܠܐ ܡܗܢܐ ܡܕܡ ܡܠܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܡܠܠܬ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܐܢܝܢ ܘܚܝܐ ܐܢܝܢ
. It is the Spirit that gives life; the body has nothing to offer. The words which I have spoken to you, they are Spirit, and they are Life
64 ܐܠܐ ܐܝܬ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܡܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܘܡܢܘ ܗܘ ܕܡܫܠܡ ܠܗ
But there are some of you who do not believe. For Jesus knew from the outset, those who did not believe, and who it was that would betray him
65 ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܡܪܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܫܟܚ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܝ ܐܠܐ ܝܗܝܒ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܐܒܝ
. And he said to them: For this reason, I said to you, That no one comes to me, unless it is granted him by my Father
66 ܡܛܠ ܗܕܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܙܠܘ ܠܒܤܬܪܗܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܡܗܠܟܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗ
On account of this language, many of his disciples retreated, and no longer walked with him
67 ܘܐܡܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܬܪܥܤܪܬܗ ܠܡܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܐܙܠ
? And Jesus said to the twelve: Do you also want to leave
68 ܥܢܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܠܘܬ ܡܢ ܢܐܙܠ ܡܠܐ ܕܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܐܝܬ ܠܟ
. Simon Kephas replied, and said: Lord, to whom shall we go ? The words of Eternal Life are here with you
69 ܘܚܢܢ ܗܝܡܢܢ ܘܝܕܥܢ ܕܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܚܝܐ
. And we believe, and know, that you are the Messiah, the Son of the Living God
70 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܓܒܝܬܟܘܢ ܠܬܪܥܤܪ ܘܡܢܟܘܢ ܚܕ ܤܛܢܐ ܗܘ
. Jesus said to them: Did I not choose you twelve ? Yet one of you is a devil
71 ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܥܠ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܒܪ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܤܟܪܝܘܛܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܫܠܡܝܘܗܝ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܬܪܥܤܪ
. This he spoke of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon; for he was later to betray him, although one of the twelve

Chapter 7

 1 ܒܬܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܗܠܟ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܓܠܝܠܐ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܗܠܟܘ ܒܝܗܘܕ ܡܛܠ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܩܛܠܗ
 
. After this Jesus stayed in Galilee, for he could not stay in Judaea, because the Jews were out to kill him
 2 ܘܩܪܝܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܕܥܕܐ ܕܡܛܠܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ
 
. And as the Jewish feast of Tabernacles drew near
 3 ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܫܢܐ ܠܟ ܡܟܐ ܘܙܠ ܠܝܗܘܕ ܕܢܚܙܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܝܟ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ
 
. And the brothers of Jesus said to him: Why not leave here and go to Judaea, so your disciples may see the works you do
 4 ܠܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܐܢܫ ܕܥܒܕ ܡܕܡ ܒܛܘܫܝܐ ܘܨܒܐ ܗܘ ܕܒܓܠܝܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܐܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܚܘܐ ܢܦܫܟ ܠܥܠܡܐ
 
For no one does something secretly if he wants it to become known by all. Since you do all this, you should let all the world see
 5 ܐܦ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܗܘܘ ܒܗ ܒܝܫܘܥ
 
. For even his brothers did not have faith in Jesus
 6 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܙܒܢܝ ܕܝܠܝ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܫܐ ܠܐ ܡܛܐ ܙܒܢܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܒܟܠ ܥܕܢ ܡܛܝܒ
 
. Jesus said to them: My time has not yet come: but your time is always present
 
7 ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܥܠܡܐ ܠܡܤܢܟܘܢ ܠܝ ܕܝܢ ܤܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܢܐ ܡܤܗܕ ܐܢܐ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܕܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܒܝܫܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ
 
. The world cannot hate you, but it does hate me; because I give evidence that its ways are wicked
 8 ܐܢܬܘܢ ܤܩܘ ܠܥܕܥܕܐ ܗܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܤܠܩ ܐܢܐ ܗܫܐ ܠܥܕܥܕܐ ܗܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܙܒܢܐ ܕܝܠܝ ܠܐ ܥܕܟܝܠ ܫܠܡ
 
. Go up to the feast; I am not going to the feast yet, because my time is not yet ready
 9 ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܘܦܫ ܠܗ ܒܓܠܝܠܐ
 
. This said, he stayed behind in Galilee
10 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܤܠܩܘ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܠܥܕܥܕܐ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܗܘ ܤܠܩ ܠܐ ܒܓܠܝܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܒܛܘܫܝܐ
. But when his brothers had left for the feast, then he went up as well, not in open, but quite privately
11 ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܒܥܕܥܕܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܝܟܘ ܗܘ
? And the Jews were looking out for him at the feast; and they said, Where is he
12 ܘܪܛܢܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܛܠܬܗ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܫܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܛܒ ܗܘ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܛܥܐ ܠܥܡܐ
And there was much whispering among the people about him; for some said, He is a good man; while others said, No, he is leading the people astray
13 ܠܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫ ܓܠܝܐܝܬ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܡܛܠ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ
. Yet no one spoke about him openly, for fear of the Jews
14 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܦܠܓܘ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܥܕܥܕܐ ܤܠܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ
. And when the feast was half over, Jesus went to the temple, and began to teach
15 ܘܡܬܕܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܢܐ ܤܦܪܐ ܟܕ ܠܐ ܝܠܦ
? And the Jews were astonished, and said: How does this man read scripture, without being taught it
16 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܝܘܠܦܢܝ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܠܝ ܐܠܐ ܕܗܘ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ
. Jesus answered and said: My teaching is not from myself, but from the one who sent me
17 ܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܕܢܥܒܕ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܡܤܬܟܠ ܝܘܠܦܢܝ ܐܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܐܘ ܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܨܒܘܬ ܢܦܫܝ ܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܐ
. He that is prepared to do his will, he will know whether my teaching is from God, or whether I speak it from my own will
18 ܡܢ ܕܡܢ ܨܒܘܬ ܪܥܝܢܗ ܡܡܠܠ ܫܘܒܚܐ ܠܢܦܫܗ ܒܥܐ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܫܘܒܚܐ ܕܡܢ ܕܫܕܪܗ ܒܥܐ ܫܪܝܪ ܗܘ ܘܥܘܠܐ ܒܠܒܗ ܠܐ ܐܝܬ
He who speaks what his own mind wills, is looking to glorify himself: but he who is looking to glorify the one who sent him, is sincere, and has no evil in his heart
19 ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܝܗܒ ܠܟܘܢ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܢܛܪ ܢܡܘܤܐ
. Did not Moses give you the Law ? Yet not one of you keeps the Law
20 ܡܢܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܩܛܠܢܝ ܥܢܐ ܟܢܫܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܝܘܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܟ ܡܢܘ ܒܥܐ ܠܡܩܛܠܟ
? Why are you looking to kill me? The crowd answered and said: You are mad: who is looking to kill you
21 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܚܕ ܥܒܕܐ ܥܒܕܬ ܘܟܠܟܘܢ ܡܬܕܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
. Jesus answered them: I did one work, and all of you are surprised by it
22 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܝܗܒ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܙܘܪܬܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܢܗ ܗܝ ܡܢ ܡܘܫܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܡܢ ܐܒܗܬܐ ܗܝ ܘܒܫܒܬܐ ܓܙܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܪܢܫܐ
. Because Moses gave you circumcision - not that it was from Moses, but from the patriarchs before him - you circumcise a child on the Sabbath
23 ܐܢ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܡܬܓܙܪ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܫܒܬܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܢܫܬܪܐ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܕܡܘܫܐ ܥܠܝ ܪܛܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܟܠܗ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܐܚܠܡܬ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܫܒܬܐ
? And if a child can be circumcised on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses is not broken, do are you angry at me, for making a man whole and complete on the Sabbath
24 ܠܐ ܬܗܘܘܢ ܕܝܢܝܢ ܒܡܤܒ ܒܐܦܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܝܢܐ ܟܐܢܐ ܕܘܢܘ
. Do not judge by appearances; let your judgment be by what is right
25 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܠܘ ܗܢܘ ܗܘ ܕܒܥܝܢ ܠܡܩܛܠ
? And some from Jerusalem said: Isn't this the one they want to kill
26 ܘܗܐ ܓܠܝܐܝܬ ܡܡܠܠ ܘܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܕܠܡܐ ܝܕܥܘ ܩܫܝܫܝܢ ܕܗܢܘ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܡܫܝܚܐ
? And here he is, speaking out in the open, and they have nothing to say to him. Perhaps our Elders have decided he really is the Messiah
27 ܐܠܐ ܠܗܢܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܗܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܬܝ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܝܕܥ ܡܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܗܘ
. Yet we know where this man is from -  when the Messiah comes, no one is to know where he is from
28 ܘܐܪܝܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܠܗ ܟܕ ܡܠܦ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܘܠܝ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܡܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܐܢܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܡܢ ܨܒܘܬ ܢܦܫܝ ܠܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܐܠܐ ܫܪܝܪ ܗܘ ܡܢ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ ܗܘ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ
And Jesus, while teaching in the temple, raised his voice and said: You know both me, and know where I am from. And did I not come on my own accord; but He that has the right sent me, and Him you do not know
29 ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܗ ܕܡܢ ܠܘܬܗ ܐܢܐ ܘܗܘ ܫܕܪܢܝ
. I know Him, because it is from Him I come, and He sent me
30 ܘܒܥܘ ܠܡܐܚܕܗ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܪܡܝ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܝܕܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܥܕܟܝܠ ܐܬܬ ܗܘܬ ܫܥܬܗ
. And they wanted to arrest him; but no one laid hold of him, because his time had not yet come
31 ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܗ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܡܐ ܕܝܬܝܪܢ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܗܢܐ ܥܒܕ
? And many in the crowd came to believe in him, and said: When the Messiah comes, can he perform greater signs than these that this man is doing
32 ܘܫܡܥܘ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܕܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܗܠܝܢ ܘܫܕܪܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܚܫܐ ܕܢܐܚܕܘܢܝܗܝ
And the Pharisees overheard this discussion the crowd had about him: and they and the chief priests sent guards to arrest him
33 ܘܐܡܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܠܝܠ ܬܘܒ ܙܒܢܐ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܐܢܐ ܘܐܙܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܘܬ ܡܢ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ
. And Jesus said: Only a little while longer am I to be with you, and then I am to go to Him who sent me
34 ܘܬܒܥܘܢܢܝ ܘܠܐ ܬܫܟܚܘܢܢܝ ܘܐܝܟܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܝܬܝ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܐܬܐ
. And you will look for me, and will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come
35 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܒܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܠܐܝܟܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܢܐ ܠܡܐܙܠ ܕܚܢܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܗ ܠܡܐ ܟܝ ܠܐܬܪܘܬܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܘܢܠܦ ܠܚܢܦܐ
The Jews said among themselves: where is he about to go, that we will not be able to find him? Will he go abroad to the Greeks, and teach the dispersed there
36 ܡܢܐ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܬܒܥܘܢܢܝ ܘܠܐ ܬܫܟܚܘܢܢܝ ܘܐܝܟܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܝܬܝ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܐܬܐ
? What does does he mean when he says: You will look for me, and will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come
37 ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܪܒܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܕܥܕܥܕܐ ܩܐܡ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܩܥܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܨܗܐ ܢܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܝ ܘܢܫܬܐ
And on the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood there and shouted: If any man thirsts, let him come to me and drink
38 ܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܒܝ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܡܪܘ ܟܬܒܐ ܢܗܪܘܬܐ ܕܡܝܐ ܚܝܐ ܢܪܕܘܢ ܡܢ ܟܪܤܗ
. whoever believes in me, as scripture says, From his breast shall flow fountains of living waters
39 ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܥܠ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܥܬܝܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܩܒܠܘ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܒܗ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܥܕܟܝܠ ܐܬܝܗܒܬ ܗܘܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܥܕܟܝܠ ܐܫܬܒܚ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ
He was speaking of the Spirit, which those who believed in him were to receive: for the Spirit had not yet been given, for Jesus had not yet been glorified
40 ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܡܠܘܗܝ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܗܢܘ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܢܒܝܐ
. And many of the crowd who heard his speaking, said: Surely, he is a prophet
41 ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܗܢܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܠܡܐ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܐܬܐ ܡܫܝܚܐ
? And some said: He is the Messiah. But others said: Would a Messiah come from Galilee
42 ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܟܬܒܐ ܐܡܪ ܕܡܢ ܙܪܥܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܘܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܠܚܡ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܕܝܠܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܐܬܐ ܡܫܝܚܐ
? does not the scriptures say, that the Messiah must be descended from David, and come from Bethlehem, the town of David
43 ܘܗܘܬ ܗܘܬ ܦܠܓܘܬܐ ܒܟܢܫܐ ܡܛܠܬܗ
. And there was disagreement among the crowd about him
44 ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܨܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܢܐܚܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܐܠܐ ܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܪܡܝ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܝܕܝܐ
. And there were some of them who wanted to arrest him. But no one actually laid hold on him
45 ܘܐܬܘ ܕܚܫܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܗܢܐ ܠܡܢܐ ܠܐ ܐܝܬܝܬܘܢܝܗܝ
? And the guards went back to the chief priests and Pharisees who said to them: Why haven't you brought him in
46 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܚܫܐ ܠܐ ܡܡܬܘܡ ܗܟܢܐ ܡܠܠ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܡܡܠܠ ܓܒܪܐ ܗܢܐ
. The guards replied them: There has never been anyone who has spoken as this man speaks
47 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܠܡܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܛܥܝܬܘܢ
? The Pharisees said to them: Have you also been led astray
48 ܠܡܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܢ ܪܫܐ ܐܘ ܡܢ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܗ
? Have any of the Elders, or any of the Pharisees, believed in him
49 ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܥܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܠܝܛܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ
. But these people, who know nothing of the Law, are damned
50 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܢܝܩܕܡܘܤ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܠܠܝܐ
: One of them, Nicodemus, who had come to Jesus earlier, said to them
51 ܕܠܡܐ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܕܝܠܢ ܡܚܝܒ ܠܒܪܢܫܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܢܫܡܥ ܡܢܗ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܘܢܕܥ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܕ
? Does our Law pass judgment on any man without it first hearing him, and finding out what he has done
52 ܥܢܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܡܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܐܢܬ ܒܨܝ ܘܚܙܝ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܠܐ ܩܐܡ
. They answered, and said to him: Are you from Galilee, too ? Look into it for yourself: prophets do not come from Galilee
53 ܐܙܠ ܗܟܝܠ ܟܠܚܕ ܠܒܝܬܗ
. So they all went off home

Chapter 8

 1 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܐܙܠ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܕܙܝܬܐ
 
. And Jesus went off to the Mount of Olives
 2 ܒܨܦܪܐ ܕܝܢ ܬܘܒ ܐܬܐ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܐܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܟܕ ܝܬܒ ܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ
 
. And in the morning he came again to the temple; and all the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them
 3 ܐܝܬܝܘ ܕܝܢ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܠܐܢܬܬܐ ܕܐܬܬܚܕܬ ܒܓܘܪܐ ܘܟܕ ܐܩܝܡܘܗ ܒܡܨܥܬܐ
 
, And the Scribes and Pharisees led a woman forward who was caught committing adultery. And when they had placed her in their midst
 4 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܗܕܐ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܐܬܬܚܕܬ ܓܠܝܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܒܤܘܥܪܢܐ ܕܓܘܪܐ
 
. they say to him: Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of adultery
 5 ܘܒܢܡܘܤܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܘܫܐ ܦܩܕ ܕܠܕܐܝܟ ܗܠܝܢ ܢܪܓܘܡ ܐܢܬ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ
 
? And the law of Moses orders us to stone people like this. What have you to say
 6 ܗܕܐ ܐܡܪܘ ܟܕ ܡܢܤܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܩܛܪܓܘܢܝܗܝ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܠܬܚܬ ܐܬܓܗܢ ܡܟܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ
 
. And they said this to test him, looking for something to accuse him by. But Jesus bent down, was writing on the ground
 7 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܟܬܪܘ ܟܕ ܡܫܐܠܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܬܦܫܛ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܢܐ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܕܠܐ ܚܛܗ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܢܫܕܐ ܥܠܝܗ ܟܐܦܐ
 
And as they continued asking him, he stood up, and said to them: Whoever among you without sin, let him be first to throw a stone at her
 8 ܘܬܘܒ ܟܕ ܐܬܓܗܢ ܟܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ
 
. And, bending down again, he wrote on the ground
 9 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܢܦܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܕ ܚܕ ܟܕ ܫܪܝܘ ܡܢ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܐܫܬܒܩܬ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܠܚܘܕܝܗ ܟܕ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܒܡܨܥܬܐ
 
. And when they heard it, left one by one, starting with the eldest; and the woman was left alone where she had stood in their midst
10 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܦܫܛ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܠܐܢܬܬܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܚܝܒܟܝ
? And when Jesus stood up, he said to the woman: Where are they? does no one condemn you
11 ܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܬ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܦܠܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܚܝܒ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܝ ܙܠܝ ܘܡܢ ܗܫܐ ܬܘܒ ܠܐ ܬܚܛܝܢ
. And she said: No one, sir. And Jesus said: Neither do I condemn you. You may go, and from here on sin no more
12 ܬܘܒ ܕܝܢ ܡܠܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܢܘܗܪܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܡܢ ܕܒܬܪܝ ܐܬܐ ܠܐ ܢܗܠܟ ܒܚܫܘܟܐ ܐܠܐ ܢܫܟܚ ܠܗ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܕܚܝܐ
And Jesus spoke with them again, and said: I am the light of the world: he that comes to me, will not walk in darkness; but will find for himself the Light of Life
13 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܐܢܬ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܟ ܡܤܗܕ ܐܢܬ ܤܗܕܘܬܟ ܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܫܪܝܪܐ
. The Pharisees said to him: You are your own witness, your testimony cannot be valid
14 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܦܢ ܐܢܐ ܡܤܗܕ ܐܢܐ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܝ ܫܪܝܪܐ ܗܝ ܤܗܕܘܬܝ ܡܛܠ ܕܕܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܘܠܐܝܟܐ ܐܙܠ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܘܠܐ ܠܐܝܟܐ ܐܙܠ ܐܢܐ
Jesus answered them: Although I am my own witness, my testimony is valid, because I know from where I came, and where I go. But you do not know, from where I came, and where I go
15 ܐܢܬܘܢ ܦܓܪܢܐܝܬ ܕܝܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܢܐ ܠܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܕܐܢ ܐܢܐ
. You judge by human standards: I judge no one
16 ܘܐܢ ܕܐܢ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܢܝ ܫܪܝܪ ܗܘ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܒܠܚܘܕܝ ܐܠܐ ܐܢܐ ܘܐܒܝ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ
. Yet if I Judge, my judgment is valid, because I am not alone, but I and my Father who sent me
17 ܘܒܢܡܘܤܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܬܝܒ ܕܤܗܕܘܬܐ ܕܬܪܝܢ ܓܒܪܝܢ ܫܪܝܪܐ ܗܝ
. And it is written in your Law, that the testimony of two persons is valid
18 ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܤܗܕ ܐܢܐ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܝ ܘܐܒܝ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ ܤܗܕ ܥܠܝ
. I am one of those who witness on my behalf, and my Father who sent me is also my witness
19 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܝܟܘ ܐܒܘܟ ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܠܝ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܠܐܒܝ ܐܠܘ ܠܝ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܐܦ ܠܐܒܝ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ
They say to him: Where is your Father? Jesus replied to them: You know neither me nor my Father. If you knew me, you would also know my Father
20 ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܡܠܠ ܒܝܬ ܓܙܐ ܟܕ ܡܠܦ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܚܕܗ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܥܕܟܝܠ ܐܬܬ ܗܘܬ ܫܥܬܗ
. These words Jesus spoke as he taught in the temple treasury: and no one hold of him, because his time was not yet come
21 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܬܘܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢܐ ܐܙܠ ܐܢܐ ܘܬܒܥܘܢܢܝ ܘܬܡܘܬܘܢ ܒܚܛܗܝܟܘܢ ܘܐܝܟܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܙܠ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܐܬܐ
. Again Jesus said to them: I am going away, and you will look for me, but you will die in your sins. And where I am going, you cannot come
22 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܠܡܐ ܟܝ ܢܦܫܗ ܩܛܠ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܐܝܟܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܙܠ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܐܬܐ
? The Jews said: Is he about to kill himself when he says, where I am going you cannot come
23 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܕܠܬܚܬ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܕܠܥܠ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܗܢܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܠܡܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܡܢ ܗܢܐ ܥܠܡܐ
. And he said to them: You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world
24 ܐܡܪܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܬܡܘܬܘܢ ܒܚܛܗܝܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܬܗܝܡܢܘܢ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܬܡܘܬܘܢ ܒܚܛܗܝܟܘܢ
. That is why I said you will die in your sins; unless you believe that I am he, you will die in your sins
25 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܢܬ ܡܢ ܐܢܬ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܦܢ ܕܫܪܝܬ ܕܐܡܠܠ ܥܡܟܘܢ
, The Jews said to him: Who are you ? Jesus said to them: What I have told you from the outset
26 ܤܓܝ ܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܘܠܡܕܢ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ ܫܪܝܪ ܗܘ ܘܐܢܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܡܥܬ ܡܢܗ ܗܠܝܢ ܗܘ ܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܐ ܒܥܠܡܐ
I have yet many things to say and to judge about you. But He that sent me is true: and I only tell what I have heard from Him, and speak it in the world
27 ܘܠܐ ܝܕܥܘ ܕܥܠ ܐܒܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
. And they did not know that he was speaking to them about the Father
28 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܬܘܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܬܝ ܕܬܪܝܡܘܢܗ ܠܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܬܕܥܘܢ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܘܡܕܡ ܡܢ ܨܒܘܬ ܢܦܫܝ ܠܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܠܦܢܝ ܐܒܝ ܗܟܘܬ ܗܘ ܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܐ
Jesus said to them again: When you lift up the Son of Man, then will you know that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own, and so I preach what my Father taught me
29 ܘܡܢ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ ܥܡܝ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܘܠܐ ܫܒܩܢܝ ܒܠܚܘܕܝ ܐܒܝ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܢܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܫܦܪ ܠܗ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܒܟܠܙܒܢ
. And the One who sent me, is with me; and my Father has not left me to myself, since I always do that which pleases Him
30 ܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܗ
. And when he had spoken these things, many came to believe in him
31 ܘܐܡܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܗ ܐܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܟܬܪܘܢ ܒܡܠܬܝ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܬܠܡܝܕܝ ܐܢܬܘܢ
. And Jesus said to those Jews who believed in him: If you make my word your home, you are indeed my disciples
32 ܘܬܕܥܘܢ ܫܪܪܐ ܘܗܘ ܫܪܪܐ ܢܚܪܪܟܘܢ
. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free
33 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܙܪܥܗ ܚܢܢ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܘܡܢ ܡܬܘܡ ܥܒܕܘܬܐ ܠܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܦܠܝܚܐ ܠܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܕܬܗܘܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܚܐܪܐ
? They say to him: We are descendants of Abraham, and never have we been slaves to anyone, what do you mean by saying, You will be free
34 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܠܡܢ ܕܥܒܕ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܥܒܕܗ ܗܘ ܕܚܛܝܬܐ
. Jesus said to them: Truly, truly, I say to you, That whoever commits sin, is the slave of sin
35 ܘܥܒܕܐ ܠܐ ܡܩܘܐ ܠܥܠܡ ܒܒܝܬܐ ܒܪܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܥܠܡ ܡܩܘܐ
. And no slave lives forever in the household; but the Son has a place there forever
36 ܐܢ ܗܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܒܪܐ ܢܚܪܪܟܘܢ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܬܗܘܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܚܐܪܐ
. And that is why, if the Son frees you, you will really be free
37 ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܕܙܪܥܗ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܐܠܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܩܛܠܢܝ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܡܠܬܝ ܠܐ ܤܦܩܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
. I know that you are the children of Abraham; but if you are looking to kill me, it is because you do not defer to my word
38 ܐܢܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܚܙܝܬ ܠܘܬ ܐܒܝ ܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܐ ܘܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܚܙܝܬܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
. I tell what I have seen with my Father, and you do what you have seen with your father
39 ܥܢܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܒܘܢ ܕܝܠܢ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܗܘ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܠܘ ܒܢܘܗܝ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ
They answered him: Our father is Abraham. Jesus told them: If you were children of Abraham, you would do the works of Abraham
40 ܗܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܗܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܩܛܠܢܝ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܕܫܪܝܪܬܐ ܡܠܠܬ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܫܡܥܬ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܕܐ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܠܐ ܥܒܕ
But now you are looking to kill me, a man who has told you the truth, which I have heard from God: Abraham did nothing like that
41 ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܚܢܢ ܡܢ ܙܢܝܘܬܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܢ ܚܕ ܐܒܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܐܠܗܐ
But you are doing the works of your father. They say to him: We are not illegitimate offspring; we have but one Father, that is God
42 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܠܘ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܡܚܒܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܢܦܩܬ ܘܐܬܝܬ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܨܒܘܬ ܢܦܫܝ ܐܬܝܬ ܐܠܐ ܗܘ ܫܕܪܢܝ
Jesus said to them: Were God your Father, you would love me; for I came forth from God: I did not come of my own will, it was He who sent me
43 ܡܛܠ ܡܢܐ ܡܠܬܝ ܠܐ ܡܫܬܘܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܠ ܕܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܡܠܬܝ
. Do you know why you cannot take in what I say ? It is because you are unable to understand my language
44 ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܐܒܐ ܐܟܠܩܪܨܐ ܐܝܬܝܟܘܢ ܘܪܓܬܗ ܕܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܗܘ ܕܡܢ ܒܪܫܝܬ ܩܛܠ ܐܢܫܐ ܗܘ ܘܒܫܪܪܐ ܠܐ ܩܐܡ ܡܛܠ ܕܫܪܪܐ ܠܝܬ ܒܗ ܐܡܬܝ ܕܡܡܠܠ ܟܕܒܘܬܐ ܡܢ ܕܝܠܗ ܗܘ ܡܡܠܠ ܡܛܠ ܕܕܓܠܐ ܗܘ ܐܦ ܐܒܘܗ
Your father is the devil, and you prefer to do what your father wants. He was a murderer from the start, and never based in the truth; for the truth is not in him, and when he lies, it is his own tongue, for he is a liar, and the father of lies
45 ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܫܪܪܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܝ
. But as for me, I speak the truth, and so for that, you do not believe me
46 ܡܢܘ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܡܟܤ ܠܝ ܥܠ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܘܐܢ ܫܪܪܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܢܐ ܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܝ
? Which of you find me guilty of sin ? And if I speak the truth, why do you not believe me
47 ܡܢ ܕܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܡܠܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܫܡܥ ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ
. A child of God listens to the words of God. Therefore if you do not listen, it is because you are not God's children
48 ܥܢܘ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܫܦܝܪ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܚܢܢ ܕܫܡܪܝܐ ܐܢܬ ܘܕܝܘܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܟ
? The Jews answered, and said to him: Are we not right to say that you are a Samaritan, and possessed by a demon
49 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܝ ܕܝܘܐ ܠܐ ܐܝܬ ܐܠܐ ܠܐܒܝ ܡܝܩܪ ܐܢܐ ܘܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܨܥܪܝܢ ܠܝ
. Jesus said to them: I am not possessed, no, I honor God, and you still condemn me
50 ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܫܘܒܚܝ ܐܝܬ ܗܘ ܕܒܥܐ ܘܕܐܢ
. Not that I care for my own glory, there is One who looks after that, and judge of it
51 ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܕܡܠܬܝ ܢܛܪ ܡܘܬܐ ܠܐ ܢܚܙܐ ܠܥܠܡ
. Truly, truly, I say to you: Whoever keeps my word, will never see death
52 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܗܫܐ ܝܕܥܢ ܕܕܝܘܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܟ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܡܝܬ ܘܢܒܝܐ ܘܐܢܬ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܕܡܢ ܕܡܠܬܝ ܢܛܪ ܡܘܬܐ ܠܐ ܢܛܥܡ ܠܥܠܡ
The Jews said: Now we know that you are possessed. Abraham is dead, and so the prophets; yet you say: He that keeps my word, will never taste death
53 ܠܡܐ ܐܢܬ ܪܒ ܐܢܬ ܡܢ ܐܒܘܢ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܕܡܝܬ ܘܡܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܡܝܬܘ ܡܢܘ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܢܦܫܟ
? Are you greater than our father Abraham, who is dead, or than the prophets, too ? What do you claim yourself to be
54 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢ ܐܢܐ ܡܫܒܚ ܐܢܐ ܢܦܫܝ ܫܘܒܚܝ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܕܡ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܐܒܝ ܕܡܫܒܚ ܠܝ ܗܘ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܠܗܢ ܗܘ
. Jesus said to them: If I seek glory for myself, my glory is nothing. It is my Father that gives glory to me, by the One of whom you say, He is our God
55 ܘܠܐ ܝܕܥܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܗ ܘܐܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܝ ܟܕܒܐ ܐܟܘܬܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܗ ܘܡܠܬܗ ܢܛܪ ܐܢܐ
And you do not know Him. But I know Him; and if I were to say, I do not know Him, I should be a liar, as you, but I do know Him, and I keep his word
56 ܐܒܪܗܡ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܡܤܘܚ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܝܘܡܝ ܘܚܙܐ ܘܚܕܝ
. Your father Abraham rejoiced to think he would see my day; he saw it, and was glad of it
57 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܥܕܟܝܠ ܒܪ ܚܡܫܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܠܐܒܪܗܡ ܚܙܝܬ
? The Jews say to him: You are not fifty yet, and you have seen Abraham
58 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܥܕܠܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܐܢܐ ܐܝܬܝ
. Jesus said to them: Truly, truly I say to you, That before Abraham ever was, I AM
59 ܘܫܩܠܘ ܟܐܦܐ ܕܢܪܓܡܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܝܫܘܥ ܐܬܛܫܝ ܘܢܦܩ ܡܢ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܥܒܪ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ ܘܐܙܠ
. And they picked up stones to stone him. But Jesus hid himself, and left the temple, and slipped by them, and went away

Chapter 9

 1 ܘܟܕ ܥܒܪ ܚܙܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܤܡܝܐ ܕܡܢ ܟܪܤ ܐܡܗ
 
. And as he went along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth
 2 ܘܫܐܠܘܗܝ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܪܒܢ ܡܢܘ ܚܛܐ ܗܢܐ ܐܘ ܐܒܗܘܗܝ ܕܟܕ ܤܡܐ ܢܬܝܠܕ
 
? And his disciples asked him: Teacher, who sinned, this man or his parents, for him to be born blind
 3 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐ ܗܘ ܚܛܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܒܗܘܗܝ ܐܠܐ ܕܢܬܚܙܘܢ ܒܗ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ
 
. Jesus said to them: Neither he nor his parents sinned, he was born blind so the works of God may be displayed in him
 4 ܠܝ ܘܠܐ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܡܢ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ ܥܕ ܐܝܡܡܐ ܗܘ ܐܬܐ ܠܠܝܐ ܕܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܦܠܚ
 
. I must carry out the work of the One that sent me, while it is still day; the night soon approaches, when in no one can work.
 5 ܟܡܐ ܕܒܥܠܡܐ ܐܢܐ ܢܘܗܪܗ ܐܢܐ ܕܥܠܡܐ
 
. So long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world
 6 ܘܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܪܩ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܘܓܒܠ ܛܝܢܐ ܡܢ ܪܘܩܗ ܘܛܫ ܥܠ ܥܝܢܘܗܝ ܕܗܘ ܤܡܝܐ
 
And having said this, he spit on the ground, and made a mud with the spit, and put it on the eyes of the blind man
 7 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܙܠ ܐܫܝܓ ܒܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܫܝܠܘܚܐ ܘܐܙܠ ܐܫܝܓ ܘܐܬܐ ܟܕ ܚܙܐ
 
. and said to him: Go, wash in the pool of Siloam. And he went, and washed, and came away with his sight
 8 ܫܒܒܘܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܕܚܕܪ ܗܘܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܢܘ ܗܘ ܕܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܘܚܕܪ
 
? And his neighbors and those whom earlier had seen him begging said: Isn't this the man who used to sit and beg
 9 ܐܝܬ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܗܘܝܘ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܕܡܐ ܕܡܐ ܠܗ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ
 
. Some said, It is him: and others said, No; he only looks like him. But he said: I am him
10 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܐܬܦܬܚ ܥܝܢܝܟ
? And they said to him: How was your sight restored
11 ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܒܕ ܛܝܢܐ ܘܛܫ ܠܝ ܥܠ ܥܝܢܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܙܠ ܐܫܝܓ ܒܡܝܐ ܕܫܝܠܘܚܐ ܘܐܙܠܬ ܐܫܝܓܬ ܘܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܝ
He answered, and said to them: A man whose name is Jesus, made a mud and put it on my eyes, and said to me, Go, wash in the waters of Siloam. And I went, and washed, and my sight was restored
12 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܝܟܘ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ
. They said to him: Where is he ? He said to them: I do not know
13 ܘܐܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܠܗܘ ܕܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܤܡܝܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܬ ܦܪܝܫܐ
. And they brought him that had been blind to the Pharisees
14 ܐܝܬܝܗ ܗܘܬ ܕܝܢ ܫܒܬܐ ܟܕ ܥܒܕ ܛܝܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܦܬܚ ܠܗ ܥܝܢܘܗܝ
. Now it had been on the Sabbath that Jesus had made the mud, and opened the man's eyes
15 ܘܬܘܒ ܫܐܠܘܗܝ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܟ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܛܝܢܐ ܤܡ ܥܠ ܥܝܢܝ ܘܐܫܝܓܬ ܘܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܝ
And again the Pharisees asked him: How was your sight restored? And he said to them: He put a mud on my eyes, and I washed, and my sight was restored
16 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܗܢܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܕܫܒܬܐ ܠܐ ܢܛܪ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܛܝܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܘܦܠܓܘܬܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ
And some of the Pharisees said: This man cannot be from God, for he does not keep the Sabbath. But others said: How can a man that is a sinner, perform these signs ? And there was a disagreement between them
17 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܬܘܒ ܠܗܘ ܤܡܝܐ ܐܢܬ ܡܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܕܦܬܚ ܠܟ ܥܝܢܝܟ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܗܘ
They spoke again to the blind man: What do you have to say about him, now that he has opened your eyes ? He replied them: I say he is a prophet
18 ܠܐ ܕܝܢ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܤܡܝܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܚܙܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܩܪܘ ܠܐܒܗܘܗܝ ܕܗܘ ܕܚܙܐ
And the Jews would not believe all this about him, that he had been so blind, and gained back his sight, until they had sent for his parents
19 ܘܫܐܠܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܢ ܗܢܘ ܒܪܟܘܢ ܗܘ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܟܕ ܤܡܐ ܐܬܝܠܕ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܗܫܐ ܚܙܐ
? And they asked them: Is this your son, who you say was born blind ? And how is it that he now sees
20 ܥܢܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܒܗܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܝܕܥܝܢܢ ܕܗܢܘ ܒܪܢ ܘܕܟܕ ܤܡܐ ܐܬܝܠܕ
; And his parents answered and said: We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind
21 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܗܫܐ ܚܙܐ ܐܘ ܡܢܘ ܦܬܚ ܠܗ ܥܝܢܘܗܝ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢܢ ܐܦ ܗܘ ܥܠ ܠܗ ܠܫܢܘܗܝ ܠܗ ܫܐܠܘ ܗܘ ܚܠܦ ܢܦܫܗ ܢܡܠܠ
. but how it is he sees now, or who opened his eyes, we do not know. He is old enough, ask him; let him speak for himself
22 ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܐܒܗܘܗܝ ܡܛܠ ܕܕܚܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܦܤܩܘ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܢܘܕܐ ܒܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܘ ܢܦܩܘܢܝܗܝ ܡܢ ܟܢܘܫܬܐ
His parents spoke like this, because they were afraid the Jews, who already decided if anyone should acknowledge him to be the Messiah, they would be turned out from the synagogue
23 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܡܪܘ ܐܒܗܘܗܝ ܕܥܠ ܠܗ ܠܫܢܘܗܝ ܠܗ ܫܐܠܘ
. That is why his parents said, He is old enough, ask him
24 ܘܩܪܐܘܗܝ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܠܗܘ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܤܡܝܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܫܒܚ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܚܢܢ ܓܝܪ ܝܕܥܝܢܢ ܕܗܢܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܛܝܐ ܗܘ
. And they sent again for the man who had been blind, and said to him: Give glory to God*, for we know that this man is a sinner.
25 ܥܢܐ ܗܘ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢ ܚܛܝܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܕܤܡܝܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܗܫܐ ܗܐ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܐ
. He answered them: I do not know if he is a sinner; I only know one thing, that I was blind, and now I can see
26 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܬܘܒ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܕ ܠܟ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܦܬܚ ܠܟ ܥܝܢܝܟ
? They said to him again: What did he do to you ? How did he open your eyes
27 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܡܪܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܬܘܒ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܫܡܥ ܠܡܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܗܘܐ ܠܗ
? He said to them: I have told you, and you do not listen. Why would you want to hear it again ? Do you want to become his disciples, too
28 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܨܚܝܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܗ ܕܗܘ ܚܢܢ ܓܝܪ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܚܢܢ ܕܡܘܫܐ
. At this, they reprimanded him, saying to him: You can be his disciple, we are disciples of Moses
29 ܘܝܕܥܝܢܢ ܕܥܡ ܡܘܫܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܠܠ ܠܗܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢܢ ܡܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܗܘ
. And we know that God spoke to Moses; but as for this man, we do not know where he comes from
30 ܥܢܐ ܗܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܒܗܕܐ ܗܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܠܡܬܕܡܪܘ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܗܘ ܘܥܝܢܝ ܕܝܠܝ ܦܬܚ
. The man replied to them: Now here is an amazing thing, that you know where he comes from, and yet he has opened my eyes
31 ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܩܠܐ ܕܚܛܝܐ ܠܐ ܫܡܥ ܐܠܐ ܠܡܢ ܕܕܚܠ ܡܢܗ ܘܥܒܕ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܠܗܘ ܗܘ ܫܡܥ
. Now we know that God does not listen to sinners; but to him that is devout, and does His will, so He listens
32 ܡܢ ܥܠܡ ܠܐ ܐܫܬܡܥܬ ܕܦܬܚ ܐܢܫ ܥܝܢܐ ܕܤܡܝܐ ܕܐܬܝܠܕ
. Never has it ever been heard of, that anyone has ever opened the eyes of one born blind
33 ܐܠܘ ܠܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܢܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܗܘܐ ܗܕܐ ܠܡܥܒܕ
. If this man were not from God, he could not do such a thing
34 ܥܢܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܢܬ ܟܠܟ ܒܚܛܗܐ ܐܬܝܠܕܬ ܘܐܢܬ ܡܠܦ ܐܢܬ ܠܢ ܘܐܦܩܘܗܝ ܠܒܪ
. They replied to him: You are a born sinner, thru and thru; and you try so to teach us? And they drove him away
35 ܘܫܡܥ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܐܦܩܘܗܝ ܠܒܪ ܘܐܫܟܚܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܢܬ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܐܢܬ ܒܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
? And Jesus heard that they had driven him out; and when he found him, he said to him: Do you believe in the Son of God
36 ܥܢܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܐܤܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢܘ ܡܪܝ ܕܐܗܝܡܢ ܒܗ
? And he, that had been healed, answered: Sir, who is he, so I may believe in him
37 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܚܙܝܬܝܗܝ ܘܗܘ ܕܡܡܠܠ ܥܡܟ ܗܘܝܘ
. Jesus said to him: You are looking at him, and he is speaking to you
38 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܐܢܐ ܡܪܝ ܘܢܦܠ ܤܓܕ ܠܗ
. And he said: Lord, I believe: and he fell down, and worshipped him
39 ܘܐܡܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܕܝܢܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܚܙܝܢ ܢܚܙܘܢ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܢܤܡܘܢ
And Jesus said: It is for judgment, have I come to this world; so that those without sight, may see; and that those with sight, may turn blind
40 ܘܫܡܥܘ ܡܢ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܡܗ ܗܘܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܠܡܐ ܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܤܡܝܐ ܚܢܢ
? And hearing this, some of those Pharisees who were present, said to him: How is this? Are we blind, too
41 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܠܘ ܤܡܝܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܠܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܗܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܚܙܝܢܢ ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܚܛܝܬܟܘܢ ܩܝܡܐ ܗܝ
. Jesus said to them: If you were blind, you would be without sin; but since you say, We see; so your sin remains

Chapter 10

 1 ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܕܠܐ ܥܐܠ ܡܢ ܬܪܥܐ ܠܛܝܪܐ ܕܥܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܤܠܩ ܡܢ ܕܘܟܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܐ ܗܘ ܓܢܒܐ ܗܘ ܘܓܝܤܐ
 
Truly, truly, I say to you, That he who does not enter into the fold of the flock by the gate, but gets in some other way, is a thief and a robber
 2 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܐܠ ܡܢ ܬܪܥܐ ܪܥܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܥܢܐ
 
. But he that enters through the gate, is the shepherd of the flock
 3 ܘܠܗܢܐ ܢܛܪ ܬܪܥܐ ܦܬܚ ܠܗ ܬܪܥܐ ܘܥܢܐ ܫܡܥܐ ܩܠܗ ܘܥܪܒܘܗܝ ܩܪܐ ܒܫܡܗܝܗܘܢ ܘܡܦܩ ܠܗܘܢ
 
. And to him the gate-keeper opens the gate; and the sheep hear his voice. And he calls the sheep by their names, and leads them out
 4 ܘܡܐ ܕܐܦܩ ܥܢܗ ܩܕܡܝܗ ܐܙܠ ܘܥܪܒܘܗܝ ܕܝܠܗ ܐܙܠܝܢ ܒܬܪܗ ܡܛܠ ܕܝܕܥܝܢ ܩܠܗ
 
. And when he has led out his flock, he goes ahead of them; and his sheep follow him, because they know his voice
 5 ܒܬܪ ܢܘܟܪܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܐܙܠܐ ܥܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܥܪܩܐ ܡܢܗ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥܐ ܩܠܗ ܕܢܘܟܪܝܐ
 
. But the flock will not follow behind a stranger, but run away from him; because it knows not the voice of a stranger
 6 ܗܕܐ ܦܠܐܬܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܘ ܡܢܐ ܡܠܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ
 
. Jesus told this parable to them; but they did not understand what he meant by it when he told it to them
 7 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܬܘܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܬܪܥܗ ܕܥܢܐ
 
. And Jesus said to them again: truly, I say to you, That I am the gate of the flock
 8 ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܘ ܓܢܒܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܓܝܤܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܐ ܫܡܥܬ ܐܢܘܢ ܥܢܐ
 
. All others who have come, were thieves and robbers: but the flock did not notice them
 9 ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܬܪܥܐ ܘܒܝ ܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܢܥܘܠ ܢܚܐ ܘܢܥܘܠ ܘܢܦܘܩ ܘܪܥܝܐ ܢܫܟܚ
 
. I am the gate: and if any enter through me, he will be safe, and will freely come and go out, and will find pasture
10 ܓܢܒܐ ܠܐ ܐܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܢܓܢܘܒ ܘܕܢܩܛܘܠ ܘܕܢܘܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܕܚܝܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܡܕܡ ܕܝܬܝܪ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ
. The thief comes not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy. I have come, that they may have Life, and may have that which is best
11 ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܪܥܝܐ ܛܒܐ ܪܥܝܐ ܛܒܐ ܢܦܫܗ ܤܐܡ ܚܠܦ ܥܢܗ
. I am a good shepherd. A good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep
12 ܐܓܝܪܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܪܥܝܐ ܘܠܘ ܕܝܠܗ ܐܢܘܢ ܥܪܒܐ ܡܐ ܕܚܙܐ ܕܐܒܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܫܒܩ ܥܢܐ ܘܥܪܩ ܘܐܬܐ ܕܐܒܐ ܚܛܦ ܘܡܒܕܪ ܠܗ ܠܥܢܐ
But a hired man, who is not the shepherd, and the sheep do not belong to him, and when he sees a wolf coming, leaves the flock, and runs away; and then the wolf attacks, and scatters the flock
13 ܐܓܝܪܐ ܕܝܢ ܥܪܩ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܓܝܪܐ ܗܘ ܘܠܐ ܒܛܝܠ ܠܗ ܥܠ ܥܢܐ
. And a hired man runs away, because he is only a hired man, and has no concern for the flock
14 ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܪܥܝܐ ܛܒܐ ܘܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܕܝܠܝ ܘܡܬܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܕܝܠܝ
. I am a good shepherd; and I know my own, and my own know me
15 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܝܕܥ ܠܝ ܐܒܝ ܘܐܢܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܐܒܝ ܘܢܦܫܝ ܤܐܡ ܐܢܐ ܚܠܦ ܥܢܐ
. As my Father knows me, so know I my Father; and I lay down my life for the flock
16 ܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܥܪܒܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܛܝܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܐܦ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܠܝ ܠܡܝܬܝܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܢܫܡܥܘܢ ܩܠܝ ܘܬܗܘܐ ܥܢܐ ܟܠܗ ܚܕܐ ܘܚܕ ܪܥܝܐ
And I have other sheep, which are not of this fold: and those I must lead as well; and they will hear my voice; and there will be only one flock, and one shepherd
17 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܒܝ ܪܚܡ ܠܝ ܕܐܢܐ ܤܐܡ ܐܢܐ ܢܦܫܝ ܕܬܘܒ ܐܤܒܝܗ
. For my Father loves me, because I lay down my life, in order to take it up again
18 ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܫ ܫܩܠ ܠܗ ܡܢܝ ܐܠܐ ܐܢܐ ܤܐܡ ܐܢܐ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܨܒܝܢܝ ܫܠܝܛ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܤܝܡܝܗ ܘܫܠܝܛ ܐܢܐ ܕܬܘܒ ܐܤܒܝܗ ܕܗܢܐ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܩܒܠܬ ܡܢ ܐܒܝ
No one takes it from me, I lay it down of my own free will, as it is in my power to lay it down, and so it is in my power to take it up again; and this command I have been given from my Father
19 ܘܗܘܬ ܬܘܒ ܦܠܓܘܬܐ ܒܝܢܝ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ
. And these words again caused a disagreement among the Jews
20 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܕܝܘܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܘܡܫܢܐ ܫܢܐ ܡܢܐ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ
? And many of them said: He is possessed, and is completely mad; why listen to him
21 ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܝ ܕܕܝܘܢܐ ܠܡܐ ܕܝܘܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܥܝܢܐ ܕܤܡܝܐ ܠܡܦܬܚܘ
? But others said: These are not the words of a possessed by a demon: could a demon open the eyes of one blind
22 ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܥܐܕܐ ܕܚܘܕܬܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܤܬܘܐ ܗܘܐ
. And the feast of the Dedication was then at Jerusalem, and it was winter
23 ܘܡܗܠܟ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܒܐܤܛܘܐ ܕܫܠܝܡܘܢ
, And Jesus as walked in the temple, on the porch of Solomon
24 ܘܚܕܪܘܗܝ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܐܡܬܝ ܢܤܒ ܐܢܬ ܢܦܫܢ ܐܢ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܢ ܓܠܝܐܝܬ
the Jews gathered around him; and said to him: how long will you keep our minds in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly
25 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܡܪܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܥܒܕܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܐܒܝ ܗܢܘܢ ܤܗܕܝܢ ܥܠܝ
Jesus answered them: I have told you, and you do not believe. The works which I do in the name of my Father are my witness
26 ܐܠܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܥܪܒܝ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܡܪܬ ܠܟܘܢ
. But you do not believe, because you are not my sheep, as I spoke so to you
27 ܥܪܒܐ ܕܝܠܝ ܩܠܝ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܘܐܢܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܐܬܝܢ ܒܬܪܝ
. My sheep hear my voice: and I know them: and they follow me
28 ܘܐܢܐ ܝܗܒ ܐܢܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܘܠܐ ܢܐܒܕܘܢ ܠܥܠܡ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܢܚܛܘܦ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢ ܐܝܕܝ
. And I give to them Eternal Life: and they will never be lost: nor will anyone steal them from my hold
29 ܐܒܝ ܓܝܪ ܕܝܗܒ ܠܝ ܡܢ ܟܠ ܪܒ ܗܘ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܫܟܚ ܕܡܢ ܐܝܕܗ ܕܐܒܝ ܢܚܛܘܦ
. For my Father, who gave them to me, is greater than all; nor can any steal from my Father's hold
30
ܐܢܐ ܘܐܒܝ ܚܕ ܚܢܢ
. I and my Father are one
31 ܘܫܩܠܘ ܬܘܒ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܟܐܦܐ ܠܡܪܓܡܗ
. And again the Jews took up stones, to stone him
32 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܒܝ ܚܘܝܬܟܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܐܝܢܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܪܓܡܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܝ
? Jesus said to them: Of the many good works I have done you, from my Father, for which of those works do you stone me
33 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܛܠ ܥܒܕܐ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܪܓܡܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܟ ܐܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܓܕܦ ܐܢܬ ܘܟܕ ܐܝܬܝܟ ܒܪ ܐܢܫܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܢܦܫܟ ܐܠܗܐ
. The Jews said to him: We do not stone you for doing good works, but for blasphemy, you are only a man, yet you claim to be God
34 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܟܬܝܒ ܒܢܡܘܤܟܘܢ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܡܪܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ
? Jesus said to them: Is it not written in your Law, I said, You are gods
35 ܐܢ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܗܘܬ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܢܫܬܪܐ
; If he called them gods, it was because the word of God was with them, and the scripture cannot be rejected
36 ܠܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܒܐ ܩܕܫܗ ܘܫܕܪܗ ܠܥܠܡܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܡܓܕܦ ܐܢܬ ܥܠ ܕܐܡܪܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܒܪܗ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
? do you say to him, whom the Father, has consecrated and sent into the world, You are blaspheming; because I said to you, I am the Son of God
37 ܐܠܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܐܒܝ ܠܐ ܬܗܝܡܢܘܢܢܝ
. And if I am not doing the work of my Father, do not believe me
38 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܐܦܢ ܠܝ ܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܥܒܕܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܕܬܕܥܘܢ ܘܬܗܝܡܢܘܢ ܕܐܒܝ ܒܝ ܘܐܢܐ ܒܐܒܝ
But if I am doing them, even if you do not believe me, at least believe the works; so you may know and believe, that my Father is in me, and I in my Father
39 ܘܒܥܘ ܗܘܘ ܬܘܒ ܕܢܐܚܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܢܦܩ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ
; And again they wanted to arrest him; but he eluded them
40 ܘܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܠܥܒܪܐ ܕܝܘܪܕܢܢ ܠܕܘܟܬܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܟܕ ܡܥܡܕ ܗܘܐ ܘܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ
. and he then went back to the far side of the Jordan, to where John had first been baptizing, and stayed there
41 ܘܐܬܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܚܕܐ ܐܬܐ ܥܒܕ ܟܠܡܕܡ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܡܪ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܥܠ ܓܒܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܫܪܝܪ ܗܘ
. And many people who came to him there said, John did not even give one sign; but every thing John spoke about his man was true
42 ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܗ
. And many of them believed in him
