Chapter 12

1 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܪܒܘܬܐ ܕܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܢܕܝܫܘܢ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ ܫܪܝ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܒܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܚܡܝܪܐ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܡܤܒ ܒܐܦܐ
And when great crowds were gathered by droves, so that they stepped on one another, Jesus began to say to his disciples, First of all, be on your guard of that leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy
2 ܠܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܟܤܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܬܓܠܐ ܘܠܐ ܕܡܛܫܝ ܕܠܐ ܢܬܝܕܥ
. For there is nothing hidden, which will not be revealed, nor concealed, that will not be known
3 ܟܠ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܚܫܘܟܐ ܐܡܪܬܘܢ ܒܢܗܝܪܐ ܢܫܬܡܥ ܘܡܕܡ ܕܒܬܘܢܐ ܒܐܕܢܐ ܠܚܫܬܘܢ ܥܠ ܐܓܪܐ ܢܬܟܪܙ
For whatever you speak in the dark, will be heard in the light, and what in secret quarters, you whisper in the ear, will be announced on the housetops
4 ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܪܚܡܝ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠܘܢ ܡܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܩܛܠܝܢ ܦܓܪܐ ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪܟܢ ܠܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܝܬܝܪ ܠܡܥܒܕ
. And to you, my friends, I say, Be not afraid of those that kill the body, and after that can do no more
5 ܐܚܘܝܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܡܢ ܬܕܚܠܘܢ ܡܢ ܗܘ ܕܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܕܩܛܠ ܫܠܝܛ ܠܡܪܡܝܘ ܒܓܗܢܐ ܐܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܗܢܐ ܕܚܠܘ
But I will tell you, of whom to be afraid, of him who after he has killed, has power to cast into hell. Yes, say I to you, be afraid of him
6 ܠܐ ܚܡܫ ܨܦܪܝܢ ܡܙܕܒܢܢ ܒܬܪܝܢ ܐܤܪܝܢ ܘܚܕܐ ܡܢܗܝܢ ܠܐ ܛܥܝܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ
. Are not five sparrows sold for two assarii? And yet not one of them is forgotten in God's view
7 ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܡܢܐ ܕܤܥܪܐ ܕܪܫܟܘܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܡܢܝܢ ܐܢܝܢ ܠܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܕܚܠܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܤܘܓܐܐ ܕܨܦܪܐ ܡܝܬܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
And as for you, every hair on your head has been counted There is no need to be afraid, for you are worth more than sparrows
8 ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܟܠ ܕܢܘܕܐ ܒܝ ܩܕܡ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܐܦ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܢܘܕܐ ܒܗ ܩܕܡ ܡܠܐܟܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And I say to you, that every one that declares himself for me before men, the Son of Man will also declare himself for him in the presence of the angels of God
9 ܐܝܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܟܦܪ ܒܝ ܩܕܡ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܢܬܟܦܪ ܒܗ ܩܕܡ ܡܠܐܟܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ
. But he that should deny me before men, shall himself be denied in the presence the angels of God
10 ܘܟܠ ܕܢܐܡܪ ܡܠܬܐ ܥܠ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܢܫܬܒܩ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܕܥܠ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܢܓܕܦ ܠܐ ܢܫܬܒܩ ܠܗ
And every one that should speak a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him, but he that should blaspheme the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven him
11 ܡܐ ܕܡܩܪܒܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܩܕܡ ܪܫܐ ܘܫܠܝܛܢܐ ܠܐ ܬܐܨܦܘܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܬܦܩܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܐܘ ܡܢܐ ܬܐܡܪܘܢ
And when they shall bring you into the synagogues, before magistrates and authorities, do not worry how you about how to defend yourselves, or what you should say
12 ܪܘܚܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܢܠܦܟܘܢ ܒܗܝ ܫܥܬܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܘܠܐ ܕܬܐܡܪܘܢ
. for the Holy Spirit will, when the time comes, instruct you what to say
13 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫ ܡܢ ܗܘ ܟܢܫܐ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܐܚܝ ܦܠܓ ܥܡܝ ܝܪܬܘܬܐ
. And one of the crowd said to him, Teacher, tell my brother, to give me a share of our inheritance
14 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܓܒܪܐ ܡܢܘ ܐܩܝܡܢܝ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܕܝܢܐ ܘܡܦܠܓܢܐ
? But Jesus said to him, Friend, who appointed me a judge and arbitrator over you
15 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܝܥܢܘܬܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܝܬܝܪܘܬܐ ܕܢܟܤܐ ܐܝܬ ܚܝܐ
. And he said to his disciples, Be on guard of every avarice, for life consists not in accumulation of wealth
16 ܘܐܡܪ ܡܬܠܐ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܥܬܝܪܐ ܐܥܠܬ ܠܗ ܐܪܥܗ ܥܠܠܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ
And he spoke to them a parable; The land of a certain wealthy man yielded crops in abundance
17 ܘܡܬܚܫܒ ܗܘܐ ܒܢܦܫܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢܐ ܐܥܒܕ ܕܠܝܬ ܠܝ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܐܚܡܘܠ ܥܠܠܬܝ
? And he considered with himself, and said, What should I do, for I have nowhere I can store up my crops
18 ܘܐܡܪ ܗܕܐ ܐܥܒܕ ܐܤܬܘܪ ܒܝܬ ܩܦܤܝ ܘܐܒܢܐ ܘܐܘܪܒ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܐܚܡܘܠ ܬܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܥܒܘܪܝ ܘܛܒܬܝ
And he said, I will do this, I will tear down my barns, and build them bigger, and there will I store up all my corn and my good things
19 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܢܦܫܝ ܢܦܫܝ ܐܝܬ ܠܟܝ ܛܒܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ ܕܤܝܡܢ ܠܫܢܝܐ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ ܐܬܬܢܝܚܝ ܐܟܘܠܝ ܐܫܬܝ ܐܬܒܤܡܝ
and I will say to my soul, My soul, you have plenty of good things, which are stored up for many years, comfort yourself, eat, drink, and have a good time
20 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܕܝܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܚܤܝܪ ܪܥܝܢܐ ܒܗܢܐ ܠܠܝܐ ܢܦܫܟ ܬܒܥܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܢܟ ܘܗܠܝܢ ܕܛܝܒܬ ܠܡܢ ܢܗܘܝܢ
? But God said to him, You lack of reason! This night, your soul will be demanded from you, and who will inherit these things provided by you
21 ܗܟܢܐ ܗܘ ܡܢ ܕܤܐܡ ܠܗ ܤܝܡܬܐ ܘܒܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܥܬܝܪ
. Such is he that stores up valuables for himself, and in God is poor
22 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܬܐܨܦܘܢ ܠܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܬܐܟܠܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܠܦܓܪܟܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܬܠܒܫܘܢ
And he said to his disciples, Therefore I tell you, Do not worry about your life, what you shall eat, nor for your body, what you should put on
23 ܢܦܫܐ ܓܝܪ ܝܬܝܪܐ ܡܢ ܤܝܒܪܬܐ ܘܦܓܪܐ ܡܢ ܠܒܘܫܐ
. For Life means more than food, and the body more than clothing
24 ܐܬܒܩܘ ܒܢܥܒܐ ܕܠܐ ܙܪܥܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܚܨܕܝܢ ܘܠܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܬܘܢܐ ܘܒܝܬ ܩܦܤܐ ܘܐܠܗܐ ܡܬܪܤܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܡܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܬܝܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܦܪܚܬܐ
Think of the ravens, which sow not, nor reap, nor have cellars and barns, yet God feeds them How much more important now are you, than the birds
25 ܐܝܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܟܕ ܝܨܦ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܘܤܦܘ ܥܠ ܩܘܡܬܗ ܐܡܬܐ ܚܕܐ
? And which of you, by taking pains, can add one cubit to his span of life
26 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܙܥܘܪܬܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܥܠ ܫܪܟܐ ܝܨܦܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
? And if the smallest things are outside your control, why worry about the rest
27 ܐܬܒܩܘ ܒܫܘܫܢܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܪܒܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܠܐܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܥܙܠܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܦ ܠܐ ܫܠܝܡܘܢ ܒܟܠܗ ܫܘܒܚܗ ܐܬܟܤܝ ܐܝܟ ܚܕܐ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ
Consider the lilies, how they grow, they toil not, nor do they spin Yet I say to you, that not even Solomon in all his resplendence, was clothed like one of these
28 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܥܡܝܪܐ ܕܝܘܡܢܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܒܚܩܠܐ ܘܡܚܪ ܢܦܠ ܒܬܢܘܪܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܡܠܒܫ ܟܡܐ ܝܬܝܪ ܠܟܘܢ ܙܥܘܪܝ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ
? And if God so clothes the herb, which today exists in the field, and tomorrow falls into the oven, how much more are you, you of little in faith
29 ܘܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܬܒܥܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܬܐܟܠܘܢ ܘܡܢܐ ܬܫܬܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܢܦܗܐ ܪܥܝܢܟܘܢ ܒܗܠܝܢ
. And do not question, what you should eat, or what you should drink, nor let your mind get lost on these things
30 ܗܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܗܘ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܐܦ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܝܕܥ ܕܡܬܒܥܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ
For all these things the people of the world strive for, your father knows that, you, too, need them
31 ܒܪܡ ܒܥܘ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܡܬܬܘܤܦܢ ܠܟܘܢ
. But seek the Realm of God, and all these things will be given to you
32 ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠ ܓܙܪܐ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܕܨܒܐ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܢܬܠ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ
. Don't worry, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the Realm
33 ܙܒܢܘ ܩܢܝܢܟܘܢ ܘܗܒܘ ܙܕܩܬܐ ܥܒܕܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܟܝܤܐ ܕܠܐ ܒܠܝܢ ܘܤܝܡܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܓܝܙܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܓܢܒܐ ܠܐ ܩܪܒ ܘܤܤܐ ܠܐ ܡܚܒܠ
Sell your possessions, and give alms, make for yourselves purses that do not age, and wealth that is not fleeting, in the heavens, where no thief comes, and no moth eats
34 ܐܝܟܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܝܬܝܗ ܤܝܡܬܟܘܢ ܬܡܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܐܦ ܠܒܟܘܢ
. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be, also
35 ܢܗܘܘܢ ܐܤܝܪܝܢ ܚܨܝܟܘܢ ܘܡܢܗܪܝܢ ܫܪܓܝܟܘܢ
. Let you be dressed for action, and your lamps burning
36 ܘܗܘܘ ܕܡܝܢ ܠܐܢܫܐ ܕܡܤܟܝܢ ܠܡܪܗܘܢ ܕܐܡܬܝ ܢܦܢܐ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܫܬܘܬܐ ܕܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܘܢܩܫ ܡܚܕܐ ܢܦܬܚܘܢ ܠܗ
And be like the servants who are waiting for their master to return from the banquet, that when he returns and knock, they may open the door to him that moment
37 ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܥܒܕܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܡܪܗܘܢ ܘܢܫܟܚ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܥܝܪܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܢܐܤܘܪ ܚܨܘܗܝ ܘܢܤܡܟ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܢܥܒܪ ܢܫܡܫ ܐܢܘܢ
Happy are those servants, who their master finds ready when he returns. I say to you truly, He will apron up, and make them sit, and will go around and wait on them
38 ܘܐܢ ܒܡܛܪܬܐ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܐܘ ܕܬܠܬ ܢܐܬܐ ܘܢܫܟܚ ܗܟܢܐ ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܥܒܕܐ ܗܢܘܢ
. And if in the second watch, or in the third, he returns and so finds them ready, happy are those servants
39 ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܘ ܕܐܠܘ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܡܪܐ ܒܝܬܐ ܒܐܝܕܐ ܡܛܪܬܐ ܐܬܐ ܓܢܒܐ ܡܬܬܥܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܘܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܬܦܠܫ ܒܝܬܗ
And know this, that if the master of the house had known at what shift the thief would come, he would have been awake and would not have worried at his house being broken into
40 ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܗܘܘ ܡܛܝܒܐ ܕܒܗܝ ܫܥܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܤܒܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܬܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
. Therefore be also ready, for at any moment that you do not expect, the Son of Man comes
41 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܡܪܢ ܠܘܬܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܠܗ ܠܡܬܠܐ ܗܢܐ ܐܘ ܐܦ ܠܘܬ ܟܠܢܫ
? Simon Kephas said to him, Our Lord, do you speak this parable to us, or to all men, too
42 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢܘ ܟܝ ܐܝܬ ܪܒܝܬܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܘܚܟܝܡܐ ܕܢܩܝܡܝܘܗܝ ܡܪܗ ܥܠ ܬܫܡܫܬܗ ܕܢܬܠ ܦܪܤܐ ܒܙܒܢܗ
Jesus said to him, Who then is that faithful and wise servant, whom his master entrusts with all his household, to give them their share in due time
43 ܛܘܒܘܗܝ ܠܗܘ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܡܪܗ ܢܫܟܚܝܘܗܝ ܕܥܒܕ ܗܟܢܐ
. Happy is that servant whom his master, when he comes, should find ready
44 ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܢܩܝܡܝܘܗܝ ܥܠ ܟܠܗ ܩܢܝܢܗ
. Truly I say to you, He will place him over all his possessions
45 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܢܐܡܪ ܥܒܕܐ ܗܘ ܒܠܒܗ ܕܡܪܝ ܡܘܚܪ ܠܡܐܬܐ ܘܢܫܪܐ ܠܡܡܚܐ ܠܥܒܕܐ ܘܠܐܡܗܬܐ ܕܡܪܗ ܘܢܫܪܐ ܠܡܠܥܤ ܘܠܡܫܬܐ ܘܠܡܪܘܐ
But if that servant should say in his heart, My master delays his return, and he begins to strike the menservants and the maids of his master, and begins to eat and drink and get drunk
46 ܢܐܬܐ ܡܪܗ ܕܥܒܕܐ ܗܘ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܠܐ ܤܒܪ ܘܒܫܥܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܘܢܦܠܓܝܘܗܝ ܘܢܤܝܡ ܡܢܬܗ ܥܡ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ
the master of that servant will return a day he doesn't know, and at an hour he doesn't know, and will divide up his portion, and assign it to those that are faithful
47 ܥܒܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܝܕܥ ܨܒܝܢܐ ܕܡܪܗ ܘܠܐ ܛܝܒ ܠܗ ܐܝܟ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܢܒܠܥ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ
And the servant who knew what his master wanted, and did not get ready for him according to his wishes, should be stroked with many lashes
48 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܘܥܒܕ ܡܕܡ ܕܫܘܐ ܠܡܚܘܬܐ ܢܒܠܥ ܡܚܘܬܐ ܙܥܘܪܝܬܐ ܟܠ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܬܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܤܓܝ ܤܓܝ ܢܬܬܒܥ ܡܢܗ ܘܠܗܘ ܕܐܓܥܠܘ ܠܗ ܤܓܝ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܢܬܒܥܘܢ ܒܐܝܕܗ
But he that did not know, yet did that which deserved lashing, should be stroked with few lashes. When a man has had a great deal given him, a great deal will be demanded of him, and when a man has had a great deal given him on trust, even more will be expected of him
49 ܢܘܪܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܕܐܪܡܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܘܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܘ ܡܢ ܟܕܘ ܚܒܬ
. I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish that it had already burned
50 ܘܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܕܐܥܡܕ ܘܤܓܝ ܐܠܝܨ ܐܢܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܬܫܬܡܠܐ
And I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how great my distress until it is over
51 ܤܒܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܫܝܢܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܕܐܪܡܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܐܠܐ ܦܠܓܘܬܐ
. Do you suppose, that I have come to create tranquility on the earth ? I tell you, No, but rather division
52 ܡܢ ܗܫܐ ܓܝܪ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܚܡܫܐ ܒܒܝܬܐ ܚܕ ܕܦܠܝܓܝܢ ܬܠܬܐ ܥܠ ܬܪܝܢ ܘܬܪܝܢ ܥܠ ܬܠܬܐ
. For from now on, there will be five people in one house who will be divided, three against two, and two against three
53 ܢܬܦܠܓ ܓܝܪ ܐܒܐ ܥܠ ܒܪܗ ܘܒܪܐ ܥܠ ܐܒܘܗܝ ܐܡܐ ܥܠ ܒܪܬܗ ܘܒܪܬܐ ܥܠ ܐܡܗ ܚܡܬܐ ܥܠ ܟܠܬܗ ܘܟܠܬܐ ܥܠ ܚܡܬܗ
For a father will be divided against his son, and a son against his father, a mother against her daughter, and a daughter against her mother, a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law
54 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܡܐ ܕܚܙܝܬܘܢ ܥܢܢܐ ܕܕܢܚܐ ܡܢ ܡܥܪܒܐ ܡܚܕܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܛܪܐ ܐܬܐ ܘܗܘܐ ܗܟܢܐ
. And he said to the crowd: When you see a cloud looming out of the west, you at once say, Rain is coming, and it is so
55 ܘܡܐ ܕܢܫܒܐ ܬܝܡܢܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܚܘܡܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܗܘܐ
. And when a south wind blows, you say, It will be hot, and so it is
56 ܢܤܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܦܪܨܘܦܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܘܕܫܡܝܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܬܦܪܫܘܢ ܙܒܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܗܢܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܠܐ ܦܪܫܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
? You hypocrites, you know how to interpret the appearance of the skies and the earth, then why can't you interpret the present
57 ܠܡܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܕܝܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܩܘܫܬܐ
? And why don't you evaluate yourselves correctly
58 ܡܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܙܠ ܐܢܬ ܥܡ ܒܥܠܕܝܢܟ ܠܘܬ ܐܪܟܘܢܐ ܥܕ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܐܢܬ ܗܒ ܬܐܓܘܪܬܐ ܘܬܬܦܪܩ ܡܢܗ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܘܒܠܟ ܠܘܬ ܕܝܢܐ ܘܕܝܢܐ ܢܫܠܡܟ ܠܓܒܝܐ ܘܓܒܝܐ ܢܪܡܝܟ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ
And when you go with your opponent to court, try to settle with him on the way, or he may bring you to the judge and the judge hand you over to the bailiff, and the bailiff send you to prison
59 ܘܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܕܠܐ ܬܦܘܩ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܬܬܠ ܫܡܘܢܐ ܐܚܪܝܐ
. For truly I say to you, You will not get out of there until you pay the last penny

Chapter 13

1 ܒܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܙܒܢܐ ܐܬܘ ܐܢܫܝܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܥܠ ܓܠܝܠܝܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܦܝܠܛܘܤ ܚܠܛ ܕܡܗܘܢ ܥܡ ܕܒܚܝܗܘܢ
. And at that time, some came and told him of those Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices
2 ܘܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܤܒܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܓܠܝܠܝܐ ܚܛܝܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܓܠܝܠܝܐ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܘܢ
? And Jesus replied, and said to them, Do you suppose, that these Galileans were sinners worse than all the Galileans, because this was done to them
3 ܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܦ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܬܬܘܒܘܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܬܐܒܕܘܢ
. No. And I say to you, That all of you also, unless you repent, will likewise perish
4 ܐܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܬܡܢܬܥܤܪ ܕܢܦܠ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܡܓܕܠܐ ܒܫܝܠܘܚܐ ܘܩܛܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܤܒܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܚܛܝܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ
? Or those eighteen, on whom the tower in Siloam fell, and killed them, do you suppose that they were sinners worse than all men living in Jerusalem
5 ܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܠܐ ܬܬܘܒܘܢ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܐܟܘܬܗܘܢ ܬܐܒܕܘܢ
. No. And I say to you, That unless you repent, all of you will perish like them
6 ܘܐܡܪ ܡܬܠܐ ܗܢܐ ܬܬܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܠܐܢܫ ܕܢܨܝܒܐ ܒܟܪܡܗ ܘܐܬܐ ܒܥܐ ܒܗ ܦܐܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚ
And he spoke this parable, A man had a fig tree that was planted in his vineyard, and he came to find fruit on it, and found none
7 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܦܠܚܐ ܗܐ ܬܠܬ ܫܢܝܢ ܐܬܐ ܐܢܐ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܦܐܪܐ ܒܬܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܐ ܦܤܘܩܝܗ ܠܡܢܐ ܡܒܛܠܐ ܐܪܥܐ
? And he said to the tenant, Alas, these three years, I have come to find fruit on this fig tree, and never do. Cut it down, why should it take up ground
8 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܦܠܚܐ ܡܪܝ ܫܒܘܩܝܗ ܐܦ ܗܕܐ ܫܢܬܐ ܥܕ ܐܦܠܚܝܗ ܘܐܙܒܠܝܗ
. The tenant said to him, My Master, spare it this year also, until I should work on it, and fertilize it
9 ܘܐܢ ܥܒܕܬ ܦܐܪܐ ܘܐܠܐ ܠܡܢܚܝ ܬܦܤܩܝܗ
? And if it yields fruit, good, and if not, you can cut it down, for why should it live
10 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܡܠܦ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܫܒܬܐ ܒܚܕܐ ܡܢ ܟܢܘܫܬܐ
, And when Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, on the Sabbath
11 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܬܡܢ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܠܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܟܘܪܗܢܐ ܫܢܝܢ ܬܡܢܥܤܪܐ ܘܟܦܝܦܐ ܗܘܬ ܘܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܗܘܬ ܕܬܬܦܫܛ ܠܓܡܪ
a woman was there who had been possessed by a spirit of infirmities for eighteen years, and she was bent over, and could not straighten herself at all
12 ܚܙܗ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܩܪܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܫܪܝܬܝ ܡܢ ܟܘܪܗܢܟܝ
. And Jesus saw her, and called her, and said to her, Woman, you are rid of your infirmity
13 ܘܤܡ ܐܝܕܗ ܥܠܝܗ ܘܡܚܕܐ ܐܬܦܫܛܬ ܘܫܒܚܬ ܠܐܠܗܐ
. And he put his hand upon her, and immediately she straightened her self up, and praised God
14 ܥܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܪܒ ܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܟܕ ܡܬܚܡܬ ܥܠ ܕܐܤܝ ܒܫܒܬܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܫܬܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܕܒܗܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܠܡܦܠܚ ܒܗܘܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܐܬܝܢ ܡܬܐܤܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܫܒܬܐ
And the official of the synagogue, being angry that Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, replied to the crowd, There are six days, on which it is permitted to work, come on one of them to be healed, but not on the Sabbath day
15 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܢܤܒ ܒܐܦܐ ܚܕ ܚܕ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܒܫܒܬܐ ܠܐ ܫܪܐ ܬܘܪܗ ܐܘ ܚܡܪܗ ܡܢ ܐܘܪܝܐ ܘܐܙܠ ܡܫܩܐ
? But Jesus answered, You hypocrite ! Do not every one of you, on the Sabbath, untie his ox or his donkey from the stall, and lead him to water
16 ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܒܪܬܗ ܗܝ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܘܐܤܪܗ ܐܟܠܩܪܨܐ ܗܐ ܬܡܢܥܤܪܐ ܫܢܝܢ ܠܐ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܬܫܬܪܐ ܡܢ ܗܢܐ ܐܤܘܪܝܐ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܫܒܬܐ
? And this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom the Deceiver has restrained these eighteen years, ought she not to be unbound from this restraint on the Sabbath day
17 ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܒܗܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܩܘܒܠܗ ܘܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܚܕܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܠܗܝܢ ܬܡܝܗܬܐ ܕܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܝ ܒܐܝܕܗ
And when he had said these things, all those that stood opposed to him were ashamed, and all the people rejoiced in all the miracles that were worked by his hand
18 ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܡܢܐ ܕܡܝܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܡܢܐ ܐܕܡܝܗ
? And Jesus said, To what is the Realm of God like? and with what shall I compare it
19 ܕܡܝܐ ܠܦܪܕܬܐ ܕܚܪܕܠܐ ܗܝ ܕܢܤܒ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܪܡܝܗ ܒܓܢܬܗ ܘܪܒܬ ܘܗܘܬ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܘܦܪܚܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܐܩܢܬ ܒܤܘܟܝܗ
It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and threw into his garden, and it grew, and became a large tree, and a bird of the sky made her nest in its branches
20 ܬܘܒ ܐܡܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܡܢܐ ܐܕܡܝܗ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
? Jesus said again, To what shall I compare the Realm of God
21 ܕܡܝܐ ܠܚܡܝܪܐ ܕܢܤܒܬ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܛܡܪܬ ܒܩܡܚܐ ܕܬܠܬ ܤܐܝܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܟܠܗ ܚܡܥ
. It is like yeast, which a woman took to knead into three measures of flour, until it all began to rise
22 ܘܪܕܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܩܘܪܝܐ ܘܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܟܕ ܡܠܦ ܘܐܙܠ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
. And he traveled through the villages and towns, teaching and going towards Jerusalem
23 ܫܐܠܗ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫ ܕܐܢ ܙܥܘܪܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܚܐܝܢ
? And a person asked him whether just a few who would have life
24 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܬܟܬܫܘ ܠܡܥܠ ܒܬܪܥܐ ܐܠܝܨܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܤܓܝܐܐ ܢܒܥܘܢ ܠܡܥܠ ܘܠܐ ܢܫܟܚܘܢ
. And Jesus said to them, Strive to enter in the narrow gate, for I say to you, many will try to enter, and will not be able
25 ܡܢ ܫܥܬܐ ܕܢܩܘܡ ܡܪܐ ܒܝܬܐ ܘܢܐܚܘܕ ܬܪܥܐ ܘܬܗܘܘܢ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܠܒܪ ܘܢܩܫܝܢ ܒܬܪܥܐ ܘܬܫܪܘܢ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܡܪܢ ܡܪܢ ܦܬܚ ܠܢ ܘܢܥܢܐ ܗܘ ܘܢܐܡܪ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ
From the moment that the master of the house shall get up and close the door, you will stand outside then, and knock at the door, and you will start to say, Our Master, our Master, open for us and he will answer, and say, I tell you, I do not know where you are from
26 ܘܬܫܪܘܢ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܩܕܡܝܟ ܐܟܠܢ ܘܐܫܬܝܢ ܘܒܫܘܩܝܢ ܐܠܦܬ
And you will begin to say, We have eaten and drank in front of you, and you have taught in our streets
27 ܘܢܐܡܪ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܦܪܘܩܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢܝ ܦܠܚܝ ܫܘܩܪܐ
. And he will say to you, I don't know you where you are from, leave me, you liars
28 ܬܡܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܟܝܐ ܘܚܘܪܩ ܫܢܐ ܟܕ ܬܚܙܘܢ ܠܐܒܪܗܡ ܘܠܐܝܤܚܩ ܘܠܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܬܗܘܘܢ ܡܦܩܝܢ ܠܒܪ
There will be sobbing and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the Realm of God, and when yourselves are to be driven out
29 ܘܢܐܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܡܕܢܚܐ ܘܡܢ ܡܥܪܒܐ ܘܡܢ ܬܝܡܢܐ ܘܡܢ ܓܪܒܝܐ ܘܢܤܬܡܟܘܢ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
. And they will come from the east and from the west, and from the south and from the north, and will sit to feast in the Realm of God
30 ܘܗܐ ܐܝܬ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܘܐܝܬ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܐܚܪܝܐ
. And behold, there are those last that will be first, and there are those first that will be last
31 ܒܗ ܒܗܘ ܝܘܡܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܦܘܩ ܙܠ ܠܟ ܡܟܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܗܪܘܕܤ ܨܒܐ ܠܡܩܛܠܟ
. On the same day came some of the Pharisees, and said to him, Go, leave here, for Herod intends to kill you
32 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܙܠܘ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܬܥܠܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܗܐ ܡܦܩ ܐܢܐ ܫܐܕܐ ܘܐܤܘܬܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܘܡܚܪ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܬܠܬܐ ܡܫܬܡܠܐ ܐܢܐ
Jesus said to them, Go and tell that jackal, behold, I will expel unholy spirits and perform cures today, and tomorrow, and on the third day I will be finished
33 ܒܪܡ ܘܠܐ ܠܝ ܕܝܘܡܢܐ ܘܡܚܪ ܐܤܥܘܪ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܙܠ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܢܐܒܕ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ
But I must labor today, and tomorrow, and on another day I will go, because it cannot be, that a prophet should perish away from Jerusalem
34 ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܩܛܠܬ ܢܒܝܐ ܘܪܓܡܬ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܠܝܚܝܢ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܡܐ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܨܒܝܬ ܠܡܟܢܫܘ ܒܢܝܟܝ ܐܝܟ ܬܪܢܓܘܠܬܐ ܕܟܢܫܐ ܦܪܘܓܝܗ ܬܚܝܬ ܓܦܝܗ ܘܠܐ ܨܒܝܬܘܢ
Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that slays the prophets, and stones those that are sent to you, how often would I have gathered your children, as a hen that gathers her young under her wings, and you would not
35 ܗܐ ܡܫܬܒܩ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܝܬܟܘܢ ܚܪܒܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܐ ܬܚܙܘܢܢܝ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܒܪܝܟ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܐ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ
. Behold, your temple will be abandoned For I say to you, You will not see me until you will say, Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord

Chapter 14

1 ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܥܠ ܠܒܝܬܐ ܕܚܕ ܡܢ ܪܫܐ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܢܐܟܘܠ ܠܚܡܐ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܫܒܬܐ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܢܛܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
. And when he entered the house of one of the high Pharisees to eat bread, on the Sabbath day, they watched him
2 ܘܗܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܕܟܢܝܫ ܗܘܐ ܡܝܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ
. And there in front of him was a man with dropsy
3 ܘܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܤܦܪܐ ܘܠܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܐܢ ܫܠܝܛ ܒܫܒܬܐ ܠܡܐܤܝܘ
? And Jesus answered, and said to the scribes and Pharisees, Is it permitted to heal on the Sabbath
4 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܫܬܩܘ ܘܐܚܕܗ ܗܘ ܘܐܤܝܗ ܘܫܪܝܗܝ
. And they were silent. And he took him, and healed him, and sent him away
5 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܘ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܢܦܠ ܒܪܗ ܐܘ ܬܘܪܗ ܒܒܪܐ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܫܒܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܚܕܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܤܩ ܠܗ
? And he said to them, Which of you, if his son or his ox falls into a well on the Sabbath day, does not immediately lift and pull him out
6 ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܠܡܬܠ ܠܗ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܥܠ ܗܕܐ
. And they could give him no answer to that
7 ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܡܬܠܐ ܠܘܬ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܙܡܢܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܥܠ ܕܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܡܓܒܝܢ ܕܘܟܝܬܐ ܕܪܝܫ ܤܡܟܐ
. And he spoke a parable to the guests that were present, as he noticed how they chose places on the highest seats
8 ܐܡܬܝ ܕܡܙܕܡܢ ܐܢܬ ܡܢ ܐܢܫ ܠܒܝܬ ܡܫܬܘܬܐ ܠܐ ܬܐܙܠ ܬܤܬܡܟ ܠܟ ܒܪܝܫ ܤܡܟܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܡܙܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܐܢܫ ܕܡܝܩܪ ܡܢܟ
When you are invited by any one to a banquet, go not and sit on the highest seat, lest there should be invited there, one more honorable than you
9 ܘܢܐܬܐ ܗܘ ܡܢ ܕܠܟ ܘܠܗ ܩܪܐ ܘܢܐܡܪ ܠܟ ܕܗܒ ܕܘܟܬܐ ܠܗܢܐ ܘܬܒܗܬ ܟܕ ܩܐܡ ܐܢܬ ܘܐܚܕ ܐܢܬ ܕܘܟܬܐ ܐܚܪܝܬܐ
and he that invited both him and you come and say to you, Give a place to this man, and you be ashamed, when you get up, and take a lower seat
10 ܐܠܐ ܡܐ ܕܐܙܕܡܢܬ ܙܠ ܐܤܬܡܟ ܠܟ ܒܚܪܬܐ ܕܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܗܘ ܕܩܪܟ ܢܐܡܪ ܠܟ ܪܚܡܝ ܐܬܥܠܐ ܠܥܠ ܘܐܤܬܡܟ ܘܬܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܩܕܡ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܤܡܝܟܝܢ ܥܡܟ
But when you are invited, go and sit on the lowest seat, so when he who invited you comes, he may say to you, My friend, come up higher and sit And you will be honored before all that sit with you
11 ܡܛܠ ܕܟܠ ܕܢܪܝܡ ܢܦܫܗ ܢܬܡܟܟ ܘܟܠ ܕܢܡܟ ܢܦܫܗ ܢܬܬܪܝܡ
. For, every one that exalts himself, will be humbled, and every one that humbles himself, will be exalted
12 ܐܡܪ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܠܗܘ ܕܩܪܝܗܝ ܡܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܫܪܘܬܐ ܐܘ ܐܚܫܡܝܬܐ ܠܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܩܪܐ ܪܚܡܝܟ ܐܦܠܐ ܐܚܝܟ ܐܘ ܐܚܝܢܝܟ ܘܠܐ ܫܒܒܝܟ ܥܬܝܪܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܘܐܦ ܗܢܘܢ ܢܩܪܘܢܟ ܘܢܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܦܘܪܥܢܐ ܗܢܐ
And he said to him that invited him, When you make a lunch or a dinner, invite not your friends, nor your brothers, nor your relatives, nor your wealthy neighbors, lest they also invite you, and you have this to reciprocate
13 ܐܠܐ ܡܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܩܘܒܠܐ ܩܪܝ ܠܡܤܟܢܐ ܤܓܝܦܐ ܚܓܝܤܐ ܤܡܝܐ
. But when you make a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind
14 ܘܛܘܒܝܟ ܕܠܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܦܪܥܘܢܟ ܢܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܦܘܪܥܢܟ ܒܩܝܡܐ ܕܙܕܝܩܐ
. And you will be blessed For they cannot reciprocate, but your reciprocation will be at the resurrection of the just
15 ܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܕܝܢ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܤܡܝܟܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܛܘܒܘܗܝ ܠܡܢ ܕܢܐܟܘܠ ܠܚܡܐ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
. And when one of those sitting heard these things, he said to him, Blessed is he that should eat bread in the Realm of God
16 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܥܒܕ ܐܚܫܡܝܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܘܩܪܐ ܠܤܓܝܐܐ
Jesus said to him: A certain man made a great banquet, and invited many
17 ܘܫܕܪ ܥܒܕܗ ܒܥܕܢܐ ܕܐܚܫܡܝܬܐ ܕܢܐܡܪ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܩܪܝܢ ܗܐ ܟܠܡܕܡ ܡܛܝܒ ܠܟܘܢ ܬܘ
. And at the time for the banquet, he sent his servant to say to those invited, there, every thing is ready for you, come
18 ܘܫܪܝܘ ܡܢ ܚܕ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܫܬܐܠܘ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܙܒܢܬ ܘܐܠܝܨ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܦܘܩ ܐܚܙܝܗ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܟ ܫܒܘܩܝܢܝ ܕܡܫܬܐܠ ܐܢܐ
And they all to a man, began to excuse themselves The first said to him, I have bought a field, and am obligated to go out and see it I beg you, let me be excused
19 ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܚܡܫܐ ܙܘܓܝܢ ܬܘܪܐ ܙܒܢܬ ܘܐܙܠ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܒܩܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܟ ܫܒܘܩܝܢܝ ܕܡܫܬܐܠ ܐܢܐ
. Another said, I have bought five teams of oxen, and I am to go inspect them I beg you, let me be excused
20 ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܢܤܒܬ ܘܡܛܠ ܗܕܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܬܐ
. Another said, I have married a wife, and because of this I cannot come
21 ܘܐܬܐ ܗܘ ܥܒܕܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܡܪܗ ܗܠܝܢ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܪܓܙ ܡܪܐ ܒܝܬܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܥܒܕܗ ܦܘܩ ܒܥܓܠ ܠܫܘܩܐ ܘܠܒܪܝܬܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܥܠ ܠܟܐ ܠܡܤܟܢܐ ܘܠܡܟܐܒܐ ܘܠܡܚܓܪܐ ܘܠܥܘܝܪܐ
And the servant came, and told his master these things Then the master of the house was angry, and he said to his servant, Go out quickly into the market-places and streets of the city, and bring in here the poor, and the diseased, and the lame, and the blind
22 ܘܐܡܪ ܥܒܕܐ ܡܪܝ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܦܩܕܬ ܘܬܘܒ ܐܝܬ ܐܬܪܐ
. And the servant said, My master, what you wanted done is done, and still there is room
23 ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܐ ܠܥܒܕܗ ܦܘܩ ܠܐܘܪܚܬܐ ܘܠܒܝܬ ܤܝܓܐ ܘܐܠܘܨ ܕܢܥܠܘܢ ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܒܝܬܝ
And the master said to his servant, Go out to the open roads, and among the hedgerows, and force them to come in, that my house may be filled
24 ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܕܩܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐ ܢܛܥܡܘܢ ܡܢ ܐܚܫܡܝܬܝ
. For I declare to you, that not one of those men that were invited should taste of my banquet
25 ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܐܬܦܢܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
, And when great crowds were traveling with him, he turned himself, and said to them
26 ܡܢ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܝ ܘܠܐ ܤܢܐ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܘܠܐܡܗ ܘܠܐܚܘܗܝ ܘܠܐܚܘܬܗ ܘܠܐܢܬܬܗ ܘܠܒܢܘܗܝ ܘܐܦ ܠܢܦܫܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܠܝ
if any man comes to me without turning his back on his father and his mother, and his brothers and his sisters, and his wife and his children, and his own life also, cannot become a disciple to me
27 ܘܡܢ ܕܠܐ ܫܩܠ ܨܠܝܒܗ ܘܐܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܠܝ
. And he that does not take up his cross and follow me, cannot become a disciple to me
28 ܡܢܘ ܓܝܪ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܕܢܒܢܐ ܡܓܕܠܐ ܘܠܐ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܝܬܒ ܚܫܒ ܢܦܩܬܗ ܐܢ ܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܠܡܫܠܡܘܬܗ
? For, which of you, wishing to build a tower, does not first sit down and estimate the expense, whether he has the means to complete it
29 ܕܠܐ ܟܕ ܢܤܝܡ ܫܬܐܤܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܢܫܟܚ ܠܡܫܠܡܘ ܟܠ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܡܒܙܚܝܢ ܒܗ
, For when he has laid the foundation, and is unable to finish, all that see it begin to ridicule him
30 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܗܢܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܫܪܝ ܠܡܒܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚ ܠܡܫܠܡܘ
. and say, This man began to build what he could not finish
31 ܐܘ ܡܢܘ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܐܙܠ ܠܩܪܒܐ ܠܡܬܟܬܫܘ ܥܡ ܡܠܟܐ ܚܒܪܗ ܘܠܐ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܡܬܪܥܐ ܕܐܢ ܡܫܟܚ ܒܥܤܪܐ ܐܠܦܝܢ ܠܡܐܪܥ ܠܗܘ ܕܐܬܐ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܒܥܤܪܝܢ ܐܠܦܝܢ
Or what king, that is going to march in battle with his neighbor king, does not first consider, whether he is able, with ten thousand, to withstand him that is opposing him with twenty thousand
32 ܘܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܥܕ ܗܘ ܪܚܝܩ ܡܢܗ ܡܫܕܪ ܐܝܙܓܕܐ ܘܒܥܐ ܥܠ ܫܠܡܐ
. and if not, while he is yet far from him, he sends envoys, and negotiates for peace
33 ܗܟܢܐ ܟܠܢܫ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܟܠܗ ܩܢܝܢܗ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܠܝ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ
. So every one of you who does not give up all his possessions, cannot be my disciple
34 ܫܦܝܪܐ ܗܝ ܡܠܚܐ ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܡܠܚܐ ܬܦܟܗ ܒܡܢܐ ܬܬܡܠܚ
? Salt is a good thing, but if the salt itself has become tasteless, where of with shall it be salted
35 ܠܐ ܠܐܪܥܐ ܘܠܐ ܠܙܒܠܐ ܐܙܠܐ ܠܒܪ ܫܕܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܐܕܢܐ ܕܢܫܡܥ ܢܫܡܥ
. It is fit for neither the earth, nor the dunghill They cast it away He that has ears to hear, let him hear

Chapter 15

1 ܡܬܩܪܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܘܬܗ ܡܟܤܐ ܘܚܛܝܐ ܕܢܫܡܥܘܢܝܗܝ
. And tax collectors and sinners came to him, to hear him
2 ܘܤܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܪܛܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܢܐ ܠܚܛܝܐ ܡܩܒܠ ܘܐܟܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ
. And the scribes and Pharisees murmured, and said, This man receives sinners, and eats with them
3 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܬܠܐ ܗܢܐ
, And Jesus spoke to them this parable
4 ܡܢܘ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܡܐܐ ܥܪܒܝܢ ܘܐܢ ܢܐܒܕ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܬܫܥܝܢ ܘܬܫܥܐ ܒܕܒܪܐ ܘܐܙܠ ܒܥܐ ܠܗܘ ܕܐܒܕ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܫܟܚܝܘܗܝ
? What man among you, that has a hundred sheep, and loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the desert, and go to find what is lost, until he finds it
5 ܘܡܐ ܕܐܫܟܚܗ ܚܕܐ ܘܫܩܠ ܠܗ ܥܠ ܟܬܦܬܗ
, And when he finds it, he rejoices, and takes it upon his shoulders
6 ܘܐܬܐ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܘܩܪܐ ܠܪܚܡܘܗܝ ܘܠܫܒܒܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܚܕܘ ܥܡܝ ܕܐܫܟܚܬ ܥܪܒܝ ܕܐܒܝܕ ܗܘܐ
and he returns home, and he calls together his friends and neighbors, and says to them, Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost
7 ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܥܠ ܚܕ ܚܛܝܐ ܕܬܐܒ ܐܘ ܥܠ ܬܫܥܝܢ ܘܬܫܥܐ ܙܕܝܩܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܒܥܝܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܬܝܒܘܬܐ
I say to you, that there will be similar joy in heaven, over one sinner that repents, more than over ninety nine just ones, to whom repentance was not necessary
8 ܐܘ ܐܝܕܐ ܗܝ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܥܤܪܐ ܙܘܙܝܢ ܘܬܘܒܕ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܡܢܗܪܐ ܫܪܓܐ ܘܚܡܐ ܒܝܬܐ ܘܒܥܝܐ ܠܗ ܒܛܝܠܐܝܬ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܬܫܟܚܝܘܗܝ
Or what woman is there, who, if she have ten drachmas, and lose one of them, does not light a lamp, and sweep the house, and search for it carefully, until she finds it
9 ܘܡܐ ܕܐܫܟܚܬܗ ܩܪܝܐ ܠܪܚܡܬܗ ܘܠܫܒܒܬܗ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܠܗܝܢ ܚܕܝܝܢ ܥܡܝ ܕܐܫܟܚܬ ܙܘܙܝ ܕܐܒܝܕ ܗܘܐ
And when she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, and says to them, Rejoice with me, for I have found my drachma that was lost
10 ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܩܕܡ ܡܠܐܟܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܥܠ ܚܕ ܚܛܝܐ ܕܬܐܒ

11 ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܬܘܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܒܢܝܐ ܬܪܝܢ
. And Jesus said to them again: A certain man had two sons
12 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܒܪܗ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܐܒܝ ܗܒ ܠܝ ܦܠܓܘܬܐ ܕܡܛܝܐ ܠܝ ܡܢ ܒܝܬܟ ܘܦܠܓ ܠܗܘܢ ܩܢܝܢܗ
And his younger son said to him, My father, give me the share that is to befall me from your house. And he divided up his property for them
13 ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܩܠܝܠ ܟܢܫ ܗܘ ܒܪܗ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܡܛܝܗܝ ܘܐܙܠ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܪܚܝܩܐ ܘܬܡܢ ܒܕܪ ܩܢܝܢܗ ܟܕ ܚܝܐ ܦܪܚܐܝܬ
And after a few days, the younger son collected together all that befell to him, and went to a distant place and there squandered his holdings on a life of debauchery
14 ܘܟܕ ܓܡܪ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܗܘܐ ܟܦܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܒܐܬܪܐ ܗܘ ܘܫܪܝ ܚܤܪ ܠܗ
. And when he had spent all that he had, there was a great famine in that region, and he began to be in need
15 ܘܐܙܠ ܢܩܦ ܠܗ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܒܢܝ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܐܬܪܐ ܗܘ ܘܗܘ ܫܕܪܗ ܠܩܪܝܬܐ ܠܡܪܥܐ ܚܙܝܪܐ
And he went and attached himself with one of the landowners of that place, and he sent him into the field to tend pigs
16 ܘܡܬܪܓܪܓ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܡܠܐ ܟܪܤܗ ܡܢ ܚܪܘܒܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܟܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܙܝܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܝܗܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ

And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants are now at my father's house, who have bread enough, and I am here wasting away with hunger
18 ܐܩܘܡ ܐܙܠ ܠܘܬ ܐܒܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܒܝ ܚܛܝܬ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܩܕܡܝܟ

And he got up and went towards his father And he still a long way off, when his father saw him and was moved with pity, and ran, and embraced him and kissed him
21 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܒܪܗ ܐܒܝ ܚܛܝܬ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܩܕܡܝܟ ܘܠܐ ܫܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܒܪܟ ܐܬܩܪܐ

But his father said to his servants: Bring here the best robe, and clothe him, and put a ring on his hand, and provide him with shoes
23 ܘܐܝܬܘ ܩܛܘܠܘ ܬܘܪܐ ܕܦܛܡܐ ܘܢܐܟܘܠ ܘܢܬܒܤܡ
. And bring here and slaughter the fatted bull, and let us eat, and be happy
24 ܕܗܢܐ ܒܪܝ ܡܝܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܚܝܐ ܘܐܒܝܕܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܐܫܬܟܚ ܘܫܪܝܘ ܠܡܬܒܤܡܘ
. For this son of mine was dead, and is now alive, he was lost but now found. And they started to be happy
25 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܒܪܗ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܒܩܪܝܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܘܩܪܒ ܠܘܬ ܒܝܬܐ ܫܡܥ ܩܠ ܙܡܪܐ ܕܤܓܝܐܐ
But his elder son was in the field, and as he came and came near the house, he heard the sound of many singing
26 ܘܩܪܐ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܛܠܝܐ ܘܫܐܠܗ ܡܢܘ ܗܢܐ
. And he called to one of the boys, and asked him what it was all about
27 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܚܘܟ ܐܬܐ ܘܩܛܠ ܐܒܘܟ ܬܘܪܐ ܕܦܛܡܐ ܕܟܕ ܚܠܝܡ ܐܩܒܠܗ
. And he said to him, Your brother has return, and your father has killed the fatted bull, because he has returned safe and healthy
28 ܘܪܓܙ ܘܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܥܠ ܘܢܦܩ ܐܒܘܗܝ ܒܥܐ ܡܢܗ
. And he was angry, and would not go in, and his father went out and pleaded with him
29 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܗܐ ܟܡܐ ܫܢܝܢ ܦܠܚ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܥܒܕܘܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܡܬܘܡ ܥܒܪܬ ܦܘܩܕܢܟ ܘܡܢ ܡܬܘܡ ܓܕܝܐ ܠܐ ܝܗܒܬ ܠܝ ܕܐܬܒܤܡ ܥܡ ܪܚܡܝ
And he said to his father, All these many years have I labored in your service, and never disobeyed your orders, and you never gave me a kid goat, that I might celebrate with my friends
30 ܠܗܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܪܟ ܟܕ ܦܪܚ ܩܢܝܢܟ ܥܡ ܙܢܝܬܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܢܟܤܬ ܠܗ ܬܘܪܐ ܕܦܛܡܐ
But for this son of yours, when he had wasting away your holdings with whores, and returns, and you have slaughtered the fat bull for him
31 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܒܘܗܝ ܒܪܝ ܐܢܬ ܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܥܡܝ ܐܢܬ ܘܟܠܡܕܡ ܕܝܠܝ ܕܝܠܟ ܗܘ

32 ܠܡܒܤܡ ܕܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܢ ܘܠܡܚܕܐ ܕܗܢܐ ܐܚܘܟ ܡܝܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܚܝܐ ܘܐܒܝܕܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܐܫܬܟܚ

And he spoke a parable to his disciples: There was a certain rich man, who had a steward, and accusations were brought to him of him, that he squandered his property
2 ܘܩܪܝܗܝ ܡܪܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܢܘ ܗܢܐ ܕܫܡܥ ܐܢܐ ܥܠܝܟ ܗܒ ܠܝ ܚܘܫܒܢܐ ܕܪܒܬ ܒܝܬܘܬܟ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܬ ܡܟܝܠ ܪܒܝܬܐ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܠܝ
And his lord called him, and said to him, What is this that I hear of you? Give to me an account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be my steward

And the steward said to himself, What shall I do, since my master is about to take away from me the stewardship? I am unable to dig, and I am ashamed to become a beggar
4 ܝܕܥܬ ܡܢܐ ܐܥܒܕ ܕܡܐ ܕܢܦܩܬ ܡܢ ܪܒܬ ܒܝܬܘܬܐ ܢܩܒܠܘܢܢܝ ܒܒܬܝܗܘܢ

And our Master praised the dishonest steward, for having acted astutely, for the children of this world are more astute than the children of light with their own generation
9 ܘܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܥܒܕܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܪܚܡܐ ܡܢ ܡܡܘܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܥܘܠܐ ܕܡܐ ܕܓܡܪ ܢܩܒܠܘܢܟܘܢ ܒܡܛܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܠܥܠܡ
And I also say to you, Make to yourselves friends, with this tainted money, so that when it fails you, they may welcome you to their tents in eternity
10 ܡܢ ܕܒܩܠܝܠ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܐܦ ܒܤܓܝ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܗܘ ܘܡܢ ܕܒܩܠܝܠ ܥܘܠ ܐܦ ܒܤܓܝ ܥܘܠ ܗܘ
He that can be trusted with the little things, is also to be trusted with the great, and he that is dishonest with the little things, is also dishonest with the great
11 ܐܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܒܡܡܘܢܐ ܕܥܘܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܫܪܪܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢܘ ܡܗܝܡܢ
? If therefore you cannot be trusted with money, who will entrust to you the genuine wealth
12 ܘܐܢ ܒܕܠܐ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܐܫܬܟܚܬܘܢ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܡܢܘ ܢܬܠ ܠܟܘܢ
? And if you have not been honest with that which is not yours, who will give to you that which is yours

There is no servant, who can serve two masters For, either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will honor the one and despise the other. You cannot be the servant to both God and money

The law and the prophets were in force until John, from now on, the Realm of God is proclaimed, and every sort are forcing to get in it
17 ܦܫܝܩ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܘܐܪܥܐ ܢܥܒܪܘܢ ܐܘ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܬܥܒܪ
. And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away, than for one letter to pass from the law
18 ܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܫܪܐ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܘܢܤܒ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܓܐܪ ܘܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܢܤܒ ܫܒܝܩܬܐ ܓܐܪ

20 ܘܡܤܟܢܐ ܚܕ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܠܥܙܪ ܘܪܡܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܬ ܬܪܥܗ ܕܗܘ ܥܬܝܪܐ ܟܕ ܡܡܚܝ ܒܫܘܚܢܐ
And there was a certain beggar, whose name was Lazarus, and he was laid by the gate of the wealthy man, suffering with sores
21 ܘܡܬܝܐܒ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܡܠܐ ܟܪܤܗ ܡܢ ܦܪܬܘܬܐ ܕܢܦܠܝܢ ܡܢ ܦܬܘܪܗ ܕܗܘ ܥܬܝܪܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܟܠܒܐ ܐܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܠܚܟܝܢ ܫܘܚܢܘܗܝ
And he desired to fill his belly with the scraps that fell from the wealthy man's table, and the dogs also came and licked his sores

And so it was, that the poor man died, and angels carried him away to Abraham's bosom The wealthy man also died, and was buried
23 ܘܟܕ ܡܫܬܢܩ ܒܫܝܘܠ ܐܪܝܡ ܥܝܢܘܗܝ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܩܐ ܘܚܙܐ ܠܐܒܪܗܡ ܘܠܠܥܙܪ ܒܥܘܒܗ
And being tormented in hell, he raised his eyes from far away, and saw Abraham, and Lazarus in his bosom
24 ܘܩܪܐ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܒܝ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝ ܘܫܕܪ ܠܠܥܙܪ ܕܢܨܒܘܥ ܪܝܫ ܨܒܥܗ ܒܡܝܐ ܘܢܪܛܒ ܠܝ ܠܫܢܝ ܕܗܐ ܡܫܬܢܩ ܐܢܐ ܒܫܠܗܒܝܬܐ ܗܕܐ
And he called with a loud voice, and said, Abraham, my father, have pity on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and wet my tongue, for I am tormented in this flame
25 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܒܪܝ ܐܬܕܟܪ ܕܩܒܠܬ ܛܒܬܟ ܒܚܝܝܟ ܘܠܥܙܪ ܒܝܫܬܗ ܘܗܫܐ ܗܐ ܡܬܬܢܝܚ ܗܪܟܐ ܘܐܢܬ ܡܫܬܢܩ
And Abraham said to him, My son, remember, that you received your good things in your lifetime, and Lazarus his evil things, and now, behold he is here at rest, and you are tormented
26 ܘܥܡ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܗܘܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܤܝܡܐ ܒܝܢܝܢ ܘܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܨܒܝܢ ܡܟܐ ܕܢܥܒܪܘܢ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܢܫܟܚܘܢ ܘܐܦܠܐ ܕܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܢܥܒܪܘܢ ܠܘܬܢ
And with all these, there is a great abyss between us and you, so that they who would pass from here to you, cannot, neither can they pass from there to us
27 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܕܝܢ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܟ ܐܒܝ ܕܬܫܕܪܝܘܗܝ ܠܒܝܬ ܐܒܝ
, He said to him, I pray you, therefore, my father, that you would send him to my father's house

1 ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܐܬܘܢ ܡܟܫܘܠܐ ܘܝ ܕܝܢ ܠܗܘ ܕܒܐܝܕܗ ܢܐܬܘܢ
. And Jesus said to his disciples: Obstacles are sure to come, but woe for the one who produces them
2 ܦܩܚ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܐܠܘ ܪܚܝܐ ܕܚܡܪܐ ܬܠܝܐ ܒܨܘܪܗ ܘܫܕܐ ܒܝܡܐ ܐܘ ܕܢܟܫܠ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܙܥܘܪܐ
Better for him were it, if a millstone were suspended to his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should cause one of these children to stumble
3 ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܒܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܐܢ ܢܚܛܐ ܐܚܘܟ ܟܐܝ ܒܗ ܘܐܢ ܬܐܒ ܫܒܘܩ ܠܗ
. Take heed to yourselves If your brother transgresses, reprimand him, and if he repents, forgive him
4 ܘܐܢ ܫܒܥ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܢܤܟܠ ܒܟ ܘܫܒܥ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܢܬܦܢܐ ܠܘܬܟ ܘܢܐܡܪ ܕܬܐܒ ܐܢܐ ܫܒܘܩ ܠܗ
And if he shall offend against you seven times a day, and, seven times a day, shall turn himself to you, and say, I repent, forgive him
5 ܘܐܡܪܘ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܠܡܪܢ ܐܘܤܦ ܠܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ
. And the Apostles said to our Lord, Increase our faith
6 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܦܪܕܬܐ ܕܚܪܕܠܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܠܬܘܬܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܐܬܥܩܪ ܘܐܬܢܨܒ ܒܝܡܐ ܘܡܫܬܡܥ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ
He said to them, Were your faith the size of a mustard seed, you might say to this mulberry tree, Be you torn up by the roots, and be you planted in the sea, and it would obey you
7 ܡܢܘ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܕܒܪ ܦܕܢܐ ܐܘ ܕܪܥܐ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܢ ܢܐܬܐ ܡܢ ܚܩܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܚܕܐ ܥܒܪ ܐܤܬܡܟ
? Which of you, having a servant driving a team of oxen, or tending sheep, will say to him when he comes from the field, Come in at once, and sit for supper
8 ܐܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܛܝܒ ܠܝ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܚܫܡ ܘܐܤܘܪ ܚܨܝܟ ܫܡܫܝܢܝ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܠܥܤ ܘܐܫܬܐ ܘܒܬܪܟܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܬ ܬܠܥܤ ܘܬܫܬܐ
But he will say to him, Prepare for me what I may dine upon, and don your serving cloth and serve me, until I have eaten and drank, and afterwards you shall eat and drink
9 ܠܡܐ ܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܡܩܒܠ ܕܗܘ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܦܩܕ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܤܒܪ ܐܢܐ
. Has he thanks for him, because the servant did what was ordered him? I think not
10 ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܐ ܕܥܒܕܬܘܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܦܩܝܕܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܕܥܒܕܐ ܚܢܢ ܒܛܝܠܐ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܚܝܒܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܥܒܕܢ
So also, when you have done all the things ordered you say, We are useless servants, for we have done only what we was our duty to do
11 ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܐܙܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܥܒܪ ܗܘܐ ܒܝܬ ܫܡܪܝܐ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ
. And it happened as Jesus headed towards Jerusalem, that he passed among the Samaritans into Galilee
12 ܘܟܕ ܩܪܝܒ ܠܡܥܠ ܠܩܪܝܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܐܪܥܘܗܝ ܥܤܪܐ ܐܢܫܝܢ ܓܪܒܐ ܘܩܡܘ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܩܐ
, And when he drew near to enter a certain village, there met him ten leper men, and they stood at a distance
13 ܘܐܪܝܡܘ ܩܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܪܒܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝܢ
. and raised their voices, and said, Our Master, Jesus, have compassion upon us
14 ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܠܘ ܚܘܘ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܠܟܗܢܐ ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠܝܢ ܐܬܕܟܝܘ
. And when he had looked upon them, he said to them, Go show yourselves to the priests. And as they were going they were cleansed
15 ܚܕ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܐܬܕܟܝ ܗܦܟ ܠܗ ܘܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܡܫܒܚ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ
. And one of them, when he saw that he was cleansed, returned, and with a loud voice, praised God
16 ܘܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܐܦܘܗܝ ܩܕܡ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܟܕ ܡܘܕܐ ܠܗ ܘܗܘ ܗܢܐ ܫܡܪܝܐ ܗܘܐ
. And he fell to his face, at the feet of Jesus, and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan
17 ܥܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܥܤܪܐ ܗܘܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܕܟܝܘ ܐܝܟܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܬܫܥܐ
? And Jesus answered, and said, Were there not ten who were cleansed? Where are the nine
18 ܠܡܐ ܦܪܫܘ ܕܢܐܬܘܢ ܢܬܠܘܢ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܐܠܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܡܢ ܥܡܐ ܗܘ ܢܘܟܪܝܐ
? Have they so gone as not to return and give glory to God, all but this one, who is of another people
19 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܡ ܙܠ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܟ ܐܚܝܬܟ
. And he said to him, Get up, and go, your faith has given you Life
20 ܘܟܕ ܫܐܠܘܗܝ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܐܡܬܝ ܐܬܝܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܐܬܝܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܢܛܘܪܬܐ
And as some of the Pharisees asked him when the Realm of God would come, he answered, and said to them, The Realm of God will not come with things seen
21 ܘܠܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܐ ܗܪܟܐ ܗܝ ܘܗܐ ܗܪ ܬܡܢ ܗܝ ܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܓܘ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܗܝ
. And they will not say, Behold, here it is! or, Behold, it is there! For, the Realm of God is within you
22 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܢܐܬܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܬܬܪܓܪܓܘܢ ܠܡܚܙܐ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܘܠܐ ܬܚܙܘܢ
And he said to his disciples, The days will come, when your will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see them
23 ܘܐܢ ܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܐ ܗܪܟܐ ܗܘ ܘܗܐ ܗܪ ܬܡܢ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܬܐܙܠܘܢ
. And if they shall say to you, Behold, here he is! or, Behold, there he is! Go not after it
24 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܪܩܐ ܒܪܩ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܟܠܗ ܬܚܝܬ ܫܡܝܐ ܡܢܗܪ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܒܝܘܡܗ
For, as the lightning darts from the heavens, and illuminates all beneath the skies, so will the Son of Man be, in his day
25 ܠܘܩܕܡ ܕܝܢ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘ ܕܢܚܫ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ ܘܢܤܬܠܐ ܡܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܗܕܐ
. But, prior, he is to suffer many things, and to be rejected by this generation
26 ܘܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܒܝܘܡܬܗ ܕܢܘܚ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܝܘܡܬܗ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
. And as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man
27 ܕܐܟܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܫܬܝܢ ܘܢܤܒܝܢ ܢܫܐ ܘܝܗܒܝܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܥܠ ܢܘܚ ܠܟܘܝܠܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܛܘܦܢܐ ܘܐܘܒܕ ܠܟܠ ܐܢܫ
They ate and drank, they took wives and were given husbands, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed everyone
28 ܘܐܝܟܢܐ ܬܘܒ ܕܗܘܐ ܒܝܘܡܬܗ ܕܠܘܛ ܕܐܟܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܫܬܝܢ ܘܙܒܢܝܢ ܘܡܙܒܢܝܢ ܘܢܨܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܒܢܝܢ
. And again, as it was in the days of Lot, they ate and drank, bought and sold, planted and built
29 ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܦܩ ܠܘܛ ܡܢ ܤܕܘܡ ܐܡܛܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܢܘܪܐ ܘܟܒܪܝܬܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܐܘܒܕ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ
. But in the day that Lot went out of Sodom, the Lord rained fire and sulfur from the sky, and destroyed them all
30 ܗܟܢܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܡܬܓܠܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
. Thus will it be, on the day when the Son of Man shall be revealed
31 ܒܗܘ ܝܘܡܐ ܡܢ ܕܒܐܓܪܐ ܗܘ ܘܡܐܢܘܗܝ ܒܒܝܬܐ ܠܐ ܢܚܘܬ ܕܢܫܩܘܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܡܢ ܕܒܚܩܠܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܢܬܗܦܟ ܠܒܤܬܪܗ
On that day, let him that is on the housetop, and his possessions in the house, not come down to take them, and let him that is in the field, not return after what is left behind
32 ܐܬܕܟܪܘ ܠܐܢܬܬܗ ܕܠܘܛ
. Remember Lot's wife
33 ܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܕܢܚܐ ܢܦܫܗ ܢܘܒܕܝܗ ܘܡܢ ܕܢܘܒܕ ܢܦܫܗ ܢܚܝܗ
. He that wants to save his life, will lose it, and he that will lose his life, shall save it
34 ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܒܗܘ ܠܠܝܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܒܚܕܐ ܥܪܤܐ ܚܕ ܢܬܕܒܪ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܫܬܒܩ
. I tell you that, on that night, two will be in one bed, one will be taken, and the other left
35 ܬܪܬܝܢ ܢܗܘܝܢ ܛܚܢܢ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܚܕܐ ܬܬܕܒܪ ܘܐܚܪܬܐ ܬܫܬܒܩ
. And two women will be grinding together, one will be taken, and the other left
36 ܬܪܝܢ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܒܚܩܠܐ ܚܕ ܢܬܕܒܪ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܫܬܒܩ
. And two men will be in the field, one will be taken, and the other left
37 ܥܢܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܐܝܟܐ ܡܪܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܦܓܪܐ ܬܡܢ ܢܬܟܢܫܘܢ ܢܫܪܐ
. They answered, and said to him, From where, our Lord? He said to them, Where the carcass is, there will the vultures gather themselves

Chapter 18

1 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܡܬܠܐ ܕܒܟܠ ܥܕܢ ܢܨܠܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܬܡܐܢ ܠܗܘܢ
. And he spoke to them a parable also, that men should pray at all times, and not lose heart
2 ܕܝܢܐ ܚܕ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܕܚܠ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܠܐ ܡܬܟܚܕ ܗܘܐ
There was a judge in a certain town, who was not afraid of God, and had no respect for men
3 ܐܪܡܠܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܚܕܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܗܝ ܘܐܬܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܬܒܥܝܢܝ ܡܢ ܒܥܠ ܕܝܢܝ
And there was a certain widow in that town, and she came to him, and said, Give me justice from my opponent
4 ܘܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܒܬܪܟܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܒܢܦܫܗ ܐܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܕܚܠ ܐܢܐ ܘܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܠܐ ܡܬܟܚܕ ܐܢܐ
, And he would not, for a long time, but later, he said to himself, Though I am not afraid of God, and have no respect for men
5 ܐܦܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܠܐܝܐ ܠܝ ܗܕܐ ܐܪܡܠܬܐ ܐܬܒܥܝܗ ܕܠܐ ܒܟܠ ܥܕܢ ܬܗܘܐ ܐܬܝܐ ܡܗܪܐ ܠܝ
. yet, because this widow annoys me, I will give her justice, that she may not be always returning and annoying me
6 ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܢ ܫܡܥܘ ܡܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܕܝܢܐ ܕܥܘܠܐ
. And our Lord said, Listen to what the unjust judge said
7 ܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܢܥܒܕ ܬܒܥܬܐ ܠܓܒܘܗܝ ܕܩܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܒܐܝܡܡܐ ܘܒܠܠܝܐ ܘܡܓܪ ܪܘܚܗ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ
? And will not God, much more, give justice to his chosen, who call upon him by day and by night, and have patience with them
8 ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܢܥܒܕ ܬܒܥܬܗܘܢ ܒܥܓܠ ܒܪܡ ܢܐܬܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܘܢܫܟܚ ܟܝ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ
? I tell you, He will give them speedy justice Yet the Son of Man will come, and will he find faith on the earth
9 ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܡܬܠܐ ܗܢܐ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܬܟܝܠܝܢ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܕܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܙܕܝܩܐ ܘܒܤܝܢ ܥܠ ܟܠܢܫ
. And he spoke this parable, towards certain people, who believed themselves righteous, and despised everyone else
10 ܬܪܝܢ ܓܒܪܝܢ ܤܠܩܘ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܠܡܨܠܝܘ ܚܕ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܡܟܤܐ
. Two men went up to the temple to pray, the one a Pharisee, and the other a tax collector
11 ܘܗܘ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܩܐܡ ܗܘܐ ܒܝܢܘܗܝ ܠܢܦܫܗ ܘܗܠܝܢ ܡܨܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܘܕܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܐܝܟ ܫܪܟܐ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܚܛܘܦܐ ܘܥܠܘܒܐ ܘܓܝܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܗܢܐ ܡܟܤܐ
And the Pharisee stood by himself, and prayed thus, God, I thank you that I have not been like the rest of men, grasping, crooked, and adulterous, nor like this tax collector
12 ܐܠܐ ܨܐܡ ܐܢܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܒܫܒܬܐ ܘܡܥܤܪ ܐܢܐ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܩܢܐ ܐܢܐ
. But I fast twice a week, and tithe all I own
13 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܡܟܤܐ ܩܐܡ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܩܐ ܘܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܥܝܢܘܗܝ ܢܪܝܡ ܠܫܡܝܐ ܐܠܐ ܛܪܦ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܚܕܝܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܚܘܢܝܢܝ ܠܚܛܝܐ
And the tax collector stood far off, and would not even raise his eyes to heaven, but struck on his breast, and said, God, be merciful to me, a sinner
14 ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܢܚܬ ܗܢܐ ܡܙܕܩ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܗܘ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܪܝܡ ܢܦܫܗ ܢܬܡܟܟ ܘܟܠ ܕܢܡܟ ܢܦܫܗ ܢܬܬܪܝܡ
I say to you, that this man returned to his house justified, rather than the Pharisee For every one that exalts himself will be humbled, and every one that humbles himself will be exalted
15 ܩܪܒܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܝܠܘܕܐ ܕܢܩܪܘܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܚܙܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܟܐܘ ܒܗܘܢ
. And they brought to him infants, that he might touch them, and his disciples saw them, and reprimanded them
16 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܒܘܩܘ ܛܠܝܐ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܘܬܝ ܘܠܐ ܬܟܠܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܝܟ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܝܠܗܘܢ ܗܝ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
But Jesus called them, and said to them, Let little children to come to me, and forbid them not, for of those that are like them, of such is the Realm of Heaven
17 ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܩܒܠ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܟ ܛܠܝܐ ܠܐ ܢܥܘܠ ܠܗ
. Truly I say to you, That he who shall not accept the Realm of God, like a little child, will not enter it
18 ܘܫܐܠܗ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܪܫܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܛܒܐ ܡܢܐ ܐܥܒܕ ܕܐܪܬ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
? And one of the officials asked him, and said to him, Good Teacher, what shall I do, that I may inherit eternal life
19 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢܐ ܩܪܐ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ ܛܒܐ ܠܝܬ ܛܒܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܚܕ ܐܠܗܐ
. Jesus said to him, Why do you call me good? For, there is none good, but one, God
20 ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܬ ܠܐ ܬܩܛܘܠ ܘܠܐ ܬܓܘܪ ܘܠܐ ܬܓܢܘܒ ܘܠܐ ܬܤܗܕ ܤܗܕܘܬܐ ܕܫܘܩܪܐ ܝܩܪ ܠܐܒܘܟ ܘܠܐܡܟ

23 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܪܝܬ ܠܗ ܥܬܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܛܒ
. And he, when he heard these words, was dejected, for he was very wealthy
24 ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܟܪܝܬ ܠܗ ܐܡܪ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܥܛܠܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܢܟܤܐ ܕܢܥܠܘܢ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
. And when Jesus saw that he was dejected, he said, How difficult it is, for those that have wealth to enter into the Realm of God!
25 ܕܠܝܠܐ ܗܝ ܠܓܡܠܐ ܕܒܚܪܘܪܐ ܕܡܚܛܐ ܢܥܘܠ ܐܘ ܥܬܝܪܐ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
. It is easier for a rope [of camel hair] to enter the eye of a needle, than a wealthy man to the Realm of God
26 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܘܡܢܘ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܚܐ
? They who heard it, said to him, Who then can have Life
27 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܘܬ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܫܟܚܢ ܠܡܗܘܐ
. And Jesus said, Those things which with men are not possible, with God, can be

. Simon Kephas said to him, We have left behind every thing, and follow you
29 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܝܬ ܐܢܫ ܕܫܒܩ ܒܬܐ ܐܘ ܐܒܗܐ ܐܘ ܐܚܐ ܐܘ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܐܘ ܒܢܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
Jesus said to him, Truly I say to you, There is no man, who has left houses, or parents, or brothers, or wife, or children, for the sake of the Realm of God
30 ܘܠܐ ܢܩܒܠ ܒܐܥܦܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܒܗܢܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܘܒܥܠܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
. that shall not receive manifold in the present and in the coming world, eternal Life
31 ܘܕܒܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܬܪܥܤܪܬܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܐ ܤܠܩܝܢܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܡܫܬܠܡܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܕܟܬܝܒܢ ܒܢܒܝܐ ܥܠ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
And Jesus took his twelve, and said to them, Behold, we are heading to Jerusalem, and all the things written in the prophets, concerning the Son of Man, will be fulfilled
32 ܢܫܬܠܡ ܓܝܪ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܘܢܒܙܚܘܢ ܒܗ ܘܢܪܩܘܢ ܒܐܦܘܗܝ
, For he will be handed over to the pagans, and they will mock him, and spit in his face
33 ܘܢܢܓܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܢܨܥܪܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܢܩܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܬܠܬܐ ܢܩܘܡ
and will scourge him, and will treat him with disgrace, and will kill him, and, the third day, he will arise
34 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܚܕܐ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܠܐ ܐܤܬܟܠܘ ܐܠܐ ܡܟܤܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܘܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܡܬܡܠܠܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ
But none of these things did they understand, but the meaning was obscure to them, and they knew not the things told to them
35 ܘܟܕ ܩܪܝܒ ܠܐܝܪܝܚܘ ܤܡܝܐ ܚܕ ܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܚܕܪ
. And as they came near to Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the side of the way, begging
36 ܘܫܡܥ ܩܠ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܥܒܪ ܘܡܫܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܕܡܢܘ ܗܢܐ
. And he heard the commotion of the crowd that passed, and inquired what it was
37 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܥܒܪ
. They say to him, Jesus the Nazarene is passing by
38 ܘܩܥܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝ
! And he called out, and said, Jesus, Son of David, have compassion on me
39 ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܟܐܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗ ܕܢܫܬܘܩ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܩܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝ
! And they that went ahead of Jesus reprimanded him, that he might be quiet. But he cried out louder, Son of David, have compassion on me
40 ܘܩܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܦܩܕ ܕܢܝܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܟܕ ܩܪܒ ܠܘܬܗ ܫܐܠܗ
, And Jesus stood, and ordered him to be called to And when he came to him, he asked him
41 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܢܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܐܥܒܕ ܠܟ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܕܐܚܙܐ

43 ܘܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܚܙܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܬܪܗ ܘܡܫܒܚ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܕܚܙܐ ܝܗܒ ܗܘܐ ܫܘܒܚܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ
