Chapter 1

1 ܡܛܠ ܕܤܓܝܐܐ ܨܒܘ ܕܢܟܬܒܘܢ ܬܫܥܝܬܐ ܕܤܘܥܪܢܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܚܢܢ ܡܦܤܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܒܗܘܢ
, Since many have wanted to write accounts of those events with which we are acquainted
2 ܐܝܟ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܫܠܡܘ ܠܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܗܘܘ ܚܙܝܐ ܘܡܫܡܫܢܐ ܕܝܠܗ ܕܡܠܬܐ
, as conveyed to us by those, who, from the outset, were eye-witnesses and attendants of the word
3 ܐܬܚܙܝ ܐܦ ܠܝ ܡܛܠ ܕܩܪܝܒ ܗܘܝܬ ܝܨܝܦܐܝܬ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܒܛܟܤܗ ܐܟܬܘܒ ܠܟ ܢܨܝܚܐ ܬܐܘܦܝܠܐ
it seemed proper for me also, as I have reviewed them all carefully, to write out the whole, sequentially, for you, excellent Theophilus
4 ܕܬܕܥ ܫܪܪܐ ܕܡܠܐ ܕܐܬܬܠܡܕܬ ܠܗܝܢ
. that you may know the truth of the accounts, with which you have been informed
5 ܗܘܐ ܒܝܘܡܬܗ ܕܗܪܘܕܤ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܐ ܟܗܢܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܙܟܪܝܐ ܡܢ ܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܐܒܝܐ ܘܐܢܬܬܗ ܡܢ ܒܢܬܗ ܕܐܗܪܘܢ ܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܠܝܫܒܥ
In the days of Herod the king of Judaea, there was a priest, whose name was Zachariah, of the Abijah class of the priesthood, and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth
6 ܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܙܕܝܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܡܗܠܟܝܢ ܒܟܠܗܘܢ ܦܘܩܕܢܘܗܝ ܘܒܟܐܢܘܬܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܕܠܐ ܥܕܠܝ
And they were both upright before God, and  followed all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord, beyond reproach
7 ܒܪܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܠܝܫܒܥ ܥܩܪܬܐ ܗܘܬ ܘܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܤܓܝܐܝ ܒܝܘܡܬܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ
. But they were childless, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both advanced in years
8 ܗܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܡܟܗܢ ܗܘܐ ܒܛܟܤܐ ܕܬܫܡܫܬܗ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ
, And once, as he was exercising his priestly function before God
9 ܒܥܝܕܐ ܕܟܗܢܘܬܐ ܡܛܝܗܝ ܕܢܤܝܡ ܒܤܡܐ ܘܥܠ ܠܗܝܟܠܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ
according to the custom of the priesthood, it fell to him to offer the incense And he went into the temple of the Lord
10 ܘܟܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܥܡܐ ܡܨܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܪ ܒܥܕܢܐ ܕܒܤܡܐ
and the whole congregation of the people were praying outside, at the time of incense
11 ܘܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗ ܠܙܟܪܝܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܕܩܐܡ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܐ ܕܡܕܒܚܐ ܕܒܤܡܐ
And the angel of the Lord appeared to Zachariah, standing on the right side of the altar of incense
12 ܘܐܫܬܓܫ ܙܟܪܝܐ ܟܕ ܚܙܝܗܝ ܘܕܚܠܬܐ ܢܦܠܬ ܥܠܘܗܝ
. And when Zachariah saw him, he was disturbed, and fear fell upon him
13 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠ ܙܟܪܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܫܬܡܥܬ ܨܠܘܬܟ ܘܐܢܬܬܟ ܐܠܝܫܒܥ ܬܐܠܕ ܠܟ ܒܪܐ ܘܬܩܪܐ ܫܡܗ ܝܘܚܢܢ
And the angel said to him, Fear not, Zachariah, for your prayer is heard, and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John
14 ܘܬܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܘܐܪܘܙܐ ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܢܚܕܘܢ ܒܡܘܠܕܗ
. And you will have joy and delight, and many will rejoice at his birth
15 ܢܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܪܒ ܩܕܡ ܡܪܝܐ ܘܚܡܪܐ ܘܫܟܪܐ ܠܐ ܢܫܬܐ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܢܬܡܠܐ ܥܕ ܗܘ ܒܟܪܤܐ ܕܐܡܗ
For he will be great before the Lord, and he will never drink wine nor strong drink, and will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from his mother's womb
16 ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܒܢܝ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܢܦܢܐ ܠܘܬ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܠܗܗܘܢ
. And many of the children of Israel will he bring to the Lord their God
17 ܘܗܘ ܢܐܙܠ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܘܒܚܝܠܐ ܕܐܠܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܢܦܢܐ ܠܒܐ ܕܐܒܗܐ ܥܠ ܒܢܝܐ ܘܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܛܦܝܤܝܢ ܠܝܕܥܬܐ ܕܟܐܢܐ ܘܢܛܝܒ ܠܡܪܝܐ ܥܡܐ ܓܡܝܪܐ
And he will go before him, in the spirit and power of Elijah the prophet, and will turn the heart of the fathers to their children, and those that are rebellious to the wisdom of the righteous, and will prepare for the Lord a well-disposed people
18 ܘܐܡܪ ܙܟܪܝܐ ܠܡܠܐܟܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܐܕܥ ܗܕܐ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܬܝ ܤܒܐ ܘܐܢܬܬܝ ܤܓܝܐܬ ܒܝܘܡܬܗ ܗܝ
And Zachariah said to the angel: How shall I know this? For I am old, and my wife is advanced in years
19 ܘܥܢܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܓܒܪܝܐܝܠ ܕܩܐܡ ܐܢܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܫܬܠܚܬ ܕܐܡܠܠ ܥܡܟ ܘܐܤܒܪܟ ܗܠܝܢ
The angel answered, and said to him, I am Gabriel, who stands before God, and I am sent to speak with you, and to tell you these things
20 ܡܟܝܠ ܬܗܘܐ ܫܬܝܩ ܘܠܐ ܬܫܟܚ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܢܗܘܝܢ ܥܠ ܕܠܐ ܗܝܡܢܬ ܠܡܠܝ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܡܬܡܠܝܢ ܒܙܒܢܗܝܢ
Henceforth you will be silenced, and mute, until the day when these things take place, because you believe not my words, which will come true in their time
21 ܥܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܩܐܡ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܤܟܐ ܠܙܟܪܝܐ ܘܬܡܝܗܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠ ܬܘܚܪܬܗ ܕܒܗܝܟܠܐ
And the people were standing and waiting for Zachariah, and they wondered at his delay in the temple
22 ܟܕ ܢܦܩ ܕܝܢ ܙܟܪܝܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܡܠܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܐܤܬܟܠܘ ܕܚܙܘܐ ܚܙܐ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܗܘ ܡܪܡܙ ܪܡܙ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܩܘܝ ܟܕ ܚܪܫ
And when Zachariah came out, he could not speak with them, and they realized that he had received a vision in the temple, and he made many gestures to them, and remained speechless
23 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܬܫܡܫܬܗ ܐܙܠ ܠܒܝܬܗ
. And when the days of his service were accomplished, he returned to his house
24 ܘܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܒܛܢܬ ܐܠܝܫܒܥ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܘܡܛܫܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܢܦܫܗ ܝܪܚܐ ܚܡܫܐ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܗܘܬ
, And it was after those days, that Elizabeth his wife conceived. And she kept to herself five months, and she said
25 ܕܗܠܝܢ ܥܒܕ ܠܝ ܡܪܝܐ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܚܪ ܒܝ ܠܡܤܒ ܚܤܕܝ ܕܒܝܬ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ
These things has the Lord done for me, in the days when he looked upon me to take away my shame [of childlessness] among men
26 ܒܝܪܚܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܫܬܐ ܐܫܬܠܚ ܓܒܪܝܐܝܠ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܢܨܪܬ
And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent by God into Galilee, to a town named Nazareth
27 ܠܘܬ ܒܬܘܠܬܐ ܕܡܟܝܪܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܝܘܤܦ ܡܢ ܒܝܬܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܘܫܡܗ ܠܒܬܘܠܬܐ ܡܪܝܡ
to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin's name was Mary
28 ܘܥܠ ܠܘܬܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܠܡ ܠܟܝ ܡܠܝܬ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܡܪܢ ܥܡܟܝ ܒܪܝܟܬ ܒܢܫܐ
And the angel entered the house, and said to her, Peace to thee, full of grace! The Lord is with thee, and blessed art thou among women
29 ܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܚܙܬ ܐܬܪܗܒܬ ܒܡܠܬܗ ܘܡܬܚܫܒܐ ܗܘܬ ܕܡܢܐ ܗܘ ܫܠܡܐ ܗܢܐ
. And when she saw [him], she was disturbed by his words, and she pondered, what this greeting could mean
30 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠܝܢ ܡܪܝܡ ܐܫܟܚܬܝ ܓܝܪ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ
And the angel said to her, Fear not, Mary, for you have found favor with God
31 ܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܬܩܒܠܝܢ ܒܛܢܐ ܘܬܐܠܕܝܢ ܒܪܐ ܘܬܩܪܝܢ ܫܡܗ ܝܫܘܥ
For behold, you will conceive in your womb, and will bear a son, and will call his name Jesus
32 ܗܢܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܪܒ ܘܒܪܗ ܕܥܠܝܐ ܢܬܩܪܐ ܘܢܬܠ ܠܗ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܟܘܪܤܝܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܐܒܘܗܝ
He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David
33 ܘܢܡܠܟ ܥܠ ܒܝܬܗ ܕܝܥܩܘܒ ܠܥܠܡ ܘܠܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܤܘܦ ܠܐ ܢܗܘܐ
And he will rule over the house of Jacob for ever, and of his reign there will be no end
34 ܐܡܪܐ ܡܪܝܡ ܠܡܠܐܟܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܠܐ ܚܟܝܡ ܠܝ
? And Mary said to the angel, How can this be, as I have not known a man
35 ܥܢܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܬܐܬܐ ܘܚܝܠܗ ܕܥܠܝܐ ܢܓܢ ܥܠܝܟܝ ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܗܘ ܕܡܬܝܠܕ ܒܟܝ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܗܘ ܘܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܢܬܩܪܐ
The angel answered, The Holy Spirit will come, and the power of the Most High will cover you with its shadow, therefore he that is born of you is holy, and will be called the Son of God
36 ܘܗܐ ܐܠܝܫܒܥ ܐܚܝܢܬܟܝ ܐܦ ܗܝ ܒܛܢܐ ܒܪܐ ܒܤܝܒܘܬܗ ܘܗܢܐ ܝܪܚܐ ܕܫܬܐ ܠܗ ܠܗܝ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܥܩܪܬܐ
Behold, your relative Elizabeth herself conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month with her who is called barren
37 ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܥܛܠ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܡܕܡ
. For nothing is impossible to God
38 ܐܡܪܐ ܡܪܝܡ ܗܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܬܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܝ ܐܝܟ ܡܠܬܟ ܘܐܙܠ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܡܢ ܠܘܬܗ
Mary said, Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord, let it be done what you have said to me. And the angel left her
39 ܩܡܬ ܕܝܢ ܡܪܝܡ ܒܗܘܢ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܐܙܠܬ ܒܛܝܠܐܝܬ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܝܗܘܕ
, And Mary arose at that time, and went hastily to a town in the hill country of Judah
40 ܘܥܠܬ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܕܙܟܪܝܐ ܘܫܐܠܬ ܫܠܡܗ ܕܐܠܝܫܒܥ
. and entered the house of Zachariah, and greeted Elizabeth
41 ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܫܡܥܬ ܐܠܝܫܒܥ ܫܠܡܗ ܕܡܪܝܡ ܕܨ ܥܘܠܐ ܒܟܪܤܗ ܘܐܬܡܠܝܬ ܐܠܝܫܒܥ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
Now as soon as
Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the child leaped in her womb, and she was filled with the Holy Spirit
42 ܘܩܥܬ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܐܡܪܬ ܠܡܪܝܡ ܡܒܪܟܬܐ ܐܢܬܝ ܒܢܫܐ ܘܡܒܪܟ ܗܘ ܦܐܪܐ ܕܒܟܪܤܟܝ
She gave a loud cry and said to Mary, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb
43 ܐܝܡܟܐ ܠܝ ܗܕܐ ܕܐܡܗ ܕܡܪܝ ܬܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܝ
? And how did this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me
44 ܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܟܕ ܢܦܠ ܩܠܐ ܕܫܠܡܟܝ ܒܐܕܢܝ ܒܚܕܘܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܕܨ ܥܘܠܐ ܒܟܪܤܝ
For behold, as the sound of your greeting fell upon my ears, with a great joy the child leaped in my womb 
45 ܘܛܘܒܝܗ ܠܐܝܕܐ ܕܗܝܡܢܬ ܕܗܘܐ ܫܘܠܡܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܡܠܠ ܥܡܗ ܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܡܪܝܐ
And happy is she that believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things that were told her by the Lord
46 ܘܐܡܪܬ ܡܪܝܡ ܡܘܪܒܐ ܢܦܫܝ ܠܡܪܝܐ
, And Mary said, My soul extols the greatness of the Lord
47 ܘܚܕܝܬ ܪܘܚܝ ܒܐܠܗܐ ܡܚܝܢܝ
. and my spirit exults in God my savior
48 ܕܚܪ ܒܡܘܟܟܐ ܕܐܡܬܗ ܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܢ ܗܫܐ ܛܘܒܐ ܢܬܠܢ ܠܝ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܟܠܗܝܢ
For he has looked upon his lowly hand maid, and behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed
49 ܕܥܒܕ ܠܘܬܝ ܪܘܪܒܬܐ ܗܘ ܕܚܝܠܬܢ ܘܩܕܝܫ ܫܡܗ
. And He that is Almighty has done for me great things, and Holy is his name
50 ܘܚܢܢܗ ܠܕܪܐ ܘܫܪܒܬܐ ܥܠ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܚܠܝܢ ܠܗ
. And his mercy is upon those that respect him, for generations and eons
51 ܥܒܕ ܙܟܘܬܐ ܒܕܪܥܗ ܘܒܕܪ ܚܬܝܪܝ ܒܬܪܥܝܬܐ ܕܠܒܗܘܢ
. He has overcome with his reach, and has scattered the intent of the proud of heart
52 ܤܚܦ ܬܩܝܦܐ ܡܢ ܟܘܪܤܘܬܐ ܘܐܪܝܡ ܡܟܝܟܐ
. He has cast down the powerful from their thrones, and has exalted the humble
53 ܟܦܢܐ ܤܒܥ ܛܒܬܐ ܘܥܬܝܪܐ ܫܪܐ ܤܦܝܩܐܝܬ
The hungry he has filled with good things, and the rich sent away empty
54 ܥܕܪ ܠܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܥܒܕܗ ܘܐܬܕܟܪ ܚܢܢܗ
, He has aided Israel his servant, and mindful of his mercy
55 ܐܝܟ ܕܡܠܠ ܥܡ ܐܒܗܝܢ ܥܡ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܘܥܡ ܙܪܥܗ ܠܥܠܡ
as he said, to our ancestors, to Abraham, and his line, for ever
56 ܩܘܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܡܪܝܡ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܝܫܒܥ ܐܝܟ ܝܪܚܐ ܬܠܬܐ ܘܗܦܟܬ ܠܒܝܬܗ
. And Mary remained with Elizabeth about three months, and returned to her home
57 ܐܠܝܫܒܥ ܕܝܢ ܗܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܙܒܢܐ ܕܬܐܠܕ ܘܝܠܕܬ ܒܪܐ
. And Elizabeth's time to give birth arrived, and she bore a son
58 ܘܫܡܥܘ ܫܒܒܝܗ ܘܒܢܝ ܛܘܗܡܗ ܕܐܤܓܝ ܐܠܗܐ ܚܢܢܗ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܚܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗ
And her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had augmented his mercy to her, and they rejoiced with her
59 ܘܗܘܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܬܡܢܝܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܡܓܙܪܗ ܠܛܠܝܐ ܘܩܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܒܫܡܐ ܕܐܒܘܗܝ ܙܟܪܝܐ
And it occurred on the eighth day, they came to circumcise the child. And they called him by the name of his father, Zachariah
60 ܘܥܢܬ ܐܡܗ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܢܬܩܪܐ ܝܘܚܢܢ
. And his mother answered, and said: Not so, but he shall be called John
61 ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܕܠܝܬ ܐܢܫ ܒܫܪܒܬܟܝ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܒܫܡܐ ܗܢܐ
. And they said to her: There is no one among your family called by that name
62 ܘܪܡܙܘ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܕܐܝܟܢܐ ܨܒܐ ܕܢܫܡܝܘܗܝ
. And they made gestures to his father, how he would have him named
63 ܘܫܐܠ ܦܢܩܝܬܐ ܘܟܬܒ ܘܐܡܪ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܗܘ ܫܡܗ ܘܐܬܕܡܪܘ ܟܠܢܫ
And he asked for a tablet, and wrote, His name is John. And every one was astonished
64 ܘܡܚܕܐ ܐܬܦܬܚ ܦܘܡܗ ܘܠܫܢܗ ܘܡܠܠ ܘܒܪܟ ܠܐܠܗܐ
. And immediately his mouth and his tongue were freed, and he spoke, and praised God
65 ܘܗܘܬ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܥܠ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܫܒܒܝܗܘܢ ܘܒܟܠܗ ܛܘܪܐ ܕܝܗܘܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܬܡܠܠܢ ܗܘܝ
And respect came upon all their neighbors, and these things were spoken of in all the high country of Judaea
66 ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܡܬܚܫܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܠܒܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܡܢܐ ܟܝ ܢܗܘܐ ܛܠܝܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܐܝܕܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܥܡܗ
And all who heard, pondered them in their heart, and said, What will this child be ? And the hand of the Lord was with him
67 ܘܐܬܡܠܝ ܙܟܪܝܐ ܐܒܘܗܝ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܐܬܢܒܝ ܘܐܡܪ
And Zachariah his father was filled with the Holy Spirit, and spoke this prophecy,
68 ܡܒܪܟ ܗܘ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܠܗܗ ܕܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܕܤܥܪ ܥܡܗ ܘܥܒܕ ܠܗ ܦܘܪܩܢܐ
, Blessed be the Lord, God of Israel, who has visited his people, and wielded redemption for them
69 ܘܐܩܝܡ ܠܢ ܩܪܢܐ ܕܦܘܪܩܢܐ ܒܒܝܬܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܥܒܕܗ
, And has raised up a horn of salvation for us, in the house of David his servant
70 ܐܝܟ ܕܡܠܠ ܒܦܘܡܐ ܕܢܒܝܘܗܝ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܡܢ ܥܠܡ
, even as he proclaimed by the mouth of his holy prophets, who were of old
71 ܕܢܦܪܩܢ ܡܢ ܒܥܠܕܒܒܝܢ ܘܡܢ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܤܢܐܝܢ
. that he would save us from our enemies, and from the hands of all who hate us
72 ܘܥܒܕ ܚܢܢܗ ܥܡ ܐܒܗܝܢ ܘܥܗܕ ܠܕܝܬܩܘܗܝ ܩܕܝܫܬܐ
, And he has shown his mercy to our ancestors, and has remembered his holy covenants
73 ܘܡܘܡܬܐ ܕܝܡܐ ܠܐܒܪܗܡ ܐܒܘܢ ܕܢܬܠ ܠܢ
, and the oath that he swore to our father Abraham, that he would grant to us
74 ܕܢܬܦܪܩ ܡܢ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܒܥܠܕܒܒܝܢ ܘܕܠܐ ܕܚܠܐ ܢܦܠܘܚ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ
, to be delivered from the hands of our enemies, and that we should serve him, without fear
75 ܟܠܗܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܢ ܒܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܘܒܙܕܝܩܘܬܐ
. all our days, in holiness and virtue
76 ܘܐܢܬ ܛܠܝܐ ܢܒܝܗ ܕܥܠܝܐ ܬܬܩܪܐ ܬܐܙܠ ܓܝܪ ܩܕܡ ܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܕܬܛܝܒ ܐܘܪܚܗ
And you, child, will be called a prophet of the Most High, for you will go before the face of the Lord, to prepare his way
77 ܕܢܬܠ ܡܕܥܐ ܕܚܝܐ ܠܥܡܗ ܒܫܘܒܩܢܐ ܕܚܛܗܝܗܘܢ
, that he may give the knowledge of Life to his people, and forgiveness of their sins
78 ܒܪܚܡܐ ܕܚܢܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܢ ܕܒܗܘܢ ܢܤܥܪܢ ܕܢܚܐ ܡܢ ܪܘܡܐ
, through the compassion of the mercy of our God, whereby the Light from above will visit us
79 ܠܡܢܗܪܘ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܚܫܘܟܐ ܘܒܛܠܠܐ ܕܡܘܬܐ ܝܬܒܝܢ ܕܢܬܪܘܨ ܪܓܠܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܫܠܡܐ
to enlighten those that dwell in darkness, and in the shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the way of peace
80 ܛܠܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܪܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܬܚܝܠ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܘܒܚܘܪܒܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܬܚܘܝܬܗ ܕܠܘܬ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ
And the child grew, and was strengthened in spirit. And he was in the desert, until the day of his appearance to Israel

Chapter 2

1 ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܢܦܩ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܡܢ ܐܓܘܤܛܘܤ ܩܤܪ ܕܢܬܟܬܒ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܕܐܘܚܕܢܗ
And it happened in those days, that a decree went forth from Augustus Caesar, that a census register all people of his dominion
2 ܗܕܐ ܡܟܬܒܢܘܬܐ ܩܕܡܝܬܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܗܓܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܩܘܪܝܢܘܤ ܒܤܘܪܝܐ
. And this census, the first, was made under the govenor of Quirinus in Syria
3 ܘܐܙܠ ܗܘܐ ܟܠܢܫ ܕܢܬܟܬܒ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܗ
. And everyone went to his own town to be registered
4 ܤܠܩ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܝܘܤܦ ܡܢ ܢܨܪܬ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ ܠܝܗܘܕ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܒܝܬ ܠܚܡ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܒܝܬܗ ܘܡܢ ܫܪܒܬܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ
And Joseph also went up from Nazareth of Galilee to Judaea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David
5 ܥܡ ܡܪܝܡ ܡܟܝܪܬܗ ܟܕ ܒܛܢܐ ܕܬܡܢ ܢܬܟܬܒ
. with Mary, his betrothed, then with child, to be registered
6 ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܬܡܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܝܘܡܬܗ ܕܬܐܠܕ
. And it was while they were there, that the time came for her to have her child
7 ܘܝܠܕܬ ܒܪܗ ܒܘܟܪܐ ܘܟܪܟܬܗ ܒܥܙܪܘܪܐ ܘܐܪܡܝܬܗ ܒܐܘܪܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܘܟܬܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܫܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ
And she brought forth her first born son, and swathed him in cloths, and laid him in the stall, for they had no place where they could lodge
8 ܪܥܘܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܒܗ ܒܐܬܪܐ ܕܫܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܘܢܛܪܝܢ ܡܛܪܬܐ ܕܠܠܝܐ ܥܠ ܡܪܥܝܬܗܘܢ
And there were shepherds in that locality where they stayed, who kept watch of their flocks by night
9 ܘܗܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܬܫܒܘܚܬܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܐܢܗܪܬ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܕܚܠܘ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ
And Behold, the angel of God came to them, and the glory of the Lord shone upon them, and they were very afraid
10 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠܘܢ ܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܤܒܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܠܟܠܗ ܥܠܡܐ
And the angel said to them, Fear not, for, behold, I proclaim to you great joy, which will be to all the world
11 ܐܬܝܠܕ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܦܪܘܩܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܡܪܝܐ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ
For there is born to you this day a deliverer, who is the Lord Messiah, in the city of David
12 ܘܗܕܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܬܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܘܠܐ ܕܟܪܝܟ ܒܥܙܪܘܪܐ ܘܤܝܡ ܒܐܘܪܝܐ
And let this be a sign to you - you will find the babe swathed in cloths, and placed in a stall
13 ܘܡܢ ܫܠܝ ܐܬܚܙܝܘ ܥܡ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܚܝܠܘܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܟܕ ܡܫܒܚܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ
And instantly there were seen with the angel, the many hosts of heaven, praising God, and saying, 
14 ܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܒܡܪܘܡܐ ܘܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܫܠܡܐ ܘܤܒܪܐ ܛܒܐ ܠܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ
Glory to God in the highest [heavens], and on earth, peace, and good hope to the sons of men
15 ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܐܙܠܘ ܡܢ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܠܫܡܝܐ ܡܠܠܘ ܪܥܘܬܐ ܚܕ ܥܡ ܚܕ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܢܪܕܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܒܝܬ ܠܚܡ ܘܢܚܙܐ ܠܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܗܘܬ ܐܝܟ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܐܘܕܥ ܠܢ
And it was so, that when the angels had returned to heaven, the shepherds said to one another: Let us go down to Bethlehem, and see this event that has unfolded, which the Lord has made known to us
16 ܘܐܬܘ ܡܤܪܗܒܐܝܬ ܘܐܫܟܚܘ ܠܡܪܝܡ ܘܠܝܘܤܦ ܘܠܥܘܠܐ ܕܤܝܡ ܒܐܘܪܝܐ
. And they went in haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in the stall
17 ܘܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܐܘܕܥܘ ܠܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܬܡܠܠܬ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܥܠ ܛܠܝܐ
. And when they saw, they repeated what had been told to them concerning the child
18 ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܐܬܕܡܪܘ ܥܠ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܡܠܠ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܪܥܘܬܐ
And all that heard were astonished at the things that were told them by the shepherds
19 ܡܪܝܡ ܕܝܢ ܢܛܪܐ ܗܘܬ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܘܡܦܚܡܐ ܒܠܒܗ
And Mary treasured all these things, and reflected upon them in her heart
20 ܘܗܦܟܘ ܪܥܘܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܡܫܒܚܝܢ ܘܡܗܠܠܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܥܠ ܟܠ ܕܚܙܘ ܘܫܡܥܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܬܡܠܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ
And the shepherds returned glorifying and praising God for all that they had seen and heard, as it was told them
21 ܘܟܕ ܡܠܘ ܬܡܢܝܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܕܢܬܓܙܪ ܛܠܝܐ ܐܬܩܪܝ ܫܡܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܐܬܩܪܝ ܡܢ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܩܕܡ ܕܢܬܒܛܢ ܒܟܪܤܐ
And when the eighth day arrived for the circumcision of the child, his name was called Jesus, as he was named by the angel, before he was conceived in the womb
22 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܬܕܟܝܬܗܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܕܡܘܫܐ ܐܤܩܘܗܝ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܕܢܩܝܡܘܢܝܗܝ ܩܕܡ ܡܪܝܐ
And when the day of their purification arrived, according to the law of Moses, they carried him to Jerusalem, to present him before the Lord
23 ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܒܢܡܘܤܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܕܟܠ ܕܟܪܐ ܦܬܚ ܡܪܒܥܐ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܢܬܩܪܐ
, as it is written in the law of the Lord, that every firstborn male shall be consecrated to the Lord
24 ܘܕܢܬܠܘܢ ܕܒܚܬܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܡܝܪ ܒܢܡܘܤܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܙܘܓܐ ܕܫܘܦܢܝܢܐ ܐܘ ܬܪܝܢ ܦܪܘܓܐ ܕܝܘܢܐ
and to offer a sacrifice, according as it is written in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtle-doves, or two young pigeons
25 ܓܒܪܐ ܕܝܢ ܚܕ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܓܒܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܟܐܝܢ ܗܘܐ ܘܙܕܝܩ ܘܡܤܟܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܘܝܐܗ ܕܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܥܠܘܗܝ
And there was a certain man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon. This man was devout and just, and awaited the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him
26 ܘܐܡܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܚܙܐ ܡܘܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܠܡܫܝܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ
And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit, that he would not see death, until he should see the Messiah of the Lord
27 ܗܘ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܟܕ ܡܥܠܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܒܗܘܗܝ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܛܠܝܐ ܕܢܥܒܕܘܢ ܚܠܦܘܗܝ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܦܩܝܕ ܒܢܡܘܤܐ
This man came, drawn by the Spirit, into the temple, and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him as is commanded in the law
28 ܩܒܠܗ ܥܠ ܕܪܥܘܗܝ ܘܒܪܟ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܡܪ
, he took him in his arms, and blessed God, and said
29 ܡܟܝܠ ܫܪܐ ܐܢܬ ܠܗ ܠܥܒܕܟ ܡܪܝ ܐܝܟ ܡܠܬܟ ܒܫܠܡܐ
, My Lord, now dismiss your servant in peace, as you have said
30 ܕܗܐ ܚܙܝ ܥܝܢܝ ܚܢܢܟ
, for behold, my eyes have seen your mercy
31 ܗܘ ܕܛܝܒܬ ܒܦܪܨܘܦܐ ܕܟܠܗܝܢ ܐܡܘܬܐ
, which you have displayed in the presence of all peoples
32 ܢܘܗܪܐ ܠܓܠܝܢܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ ܘܫܘܒܚܐ ܠܥܡܟ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ
a light to enlighten the pagans, and a glory for your people Israel
33 ܝܘܤܦ ܕܝܢ ܘܐܡܗ ܬܡܝܗܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܬܡܠܠܢ ܗܘܝ ܥܠܘܗܝ
. And Joseph and his mother marveled at those things which were spoken concerning him
34 ܘܒܪܟ ܐܢܘܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܡܪܝܡ ܐܡܗ ܗܐ ܗܢܐ ܤܝܡ ܠܡܦܘܠܬܐ ܘܠܩܝܡܐ ܕܤܓܝܐܐ ܒܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܘܠܐܬܐ ܕܚܪܝܢܐ
And Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary his mother: Behold, this child is destined to be the downfall and for the rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be opposed
35 ܘܒܢܦܫܟܝ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܠܟܝ ܬܥܒܪ ܪܘܡܚܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܬܓܠܝܢ ܡܚܫܒܬܐ ܕܠܒܘܬܐ ܕܤܓܝܐܐ
. and also a lance will pierce your own soul, that the thoughts of the hearts of many may be laid bare
36 ܘܚܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܢܒܝܬܐ ܒܪܬܗ ܕܦܢܘܐܝܠ ܡܢ ܫܒܛܐ ܕܐܫܝܪ ܐܦ ܗܝ ܩܫܝܫܬ ܒܝܘܡܬܗ ܗܘܬ ܘܫܒܥ ܫܢܝܢ ܥܡ ܒܥܠܗ ܚܝܬ ܡܢ ܒܬܘܠܘܬܗ
And Hanna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher, she also was aged, and, from her maidenhood, had lived seven years with her husband,
37 ܘܗܘܬ ܐܪܡܠܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܫܢܝܢ ܬܡܢܐܝܢ ܘܐܪܒܥ ܘܠܐ ܦܪܩܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܢ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܒܨܘܡܐ ܘܒܨܠܘܬܐ ܦܠܚܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܐܝܡܡܐ ܘܒܠܠܝܐ
and was a widow of about eighty four years, and constantly in the temple, and worshipped day and night with fasting and prayer
38 ܘܐܦ ܗܝ ܩܡܬ ܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܘܐܘܕܝܬ ܠܡܪܝܐ ܘܡܡܠܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܥܡ ܟܠܢܫ ܕܡܤܟܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܦܘܪܩܢܗ ܕܐܘܪܫܠܡ
and she too stood up, in that time, and gave thanks to the Lord, and spoke of him to every one that waited for the redemption of Jerusalem
39 ܘܟܕ ܫܠܡܘ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܐܝܟ ܕܒܢܡܘܤܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܗܦܟܘ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ ܠܢܨܪܬ ܡܕܝܢܬܗܘܢ
And when they had accomplished all things, according to the law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee, to their town Nazareth
40 ܛܠܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܪܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܬܚܝܠ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܘܡܬܡܠܐ ܚܟܡܬܐ ܘܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܥܠܘܗܝ
And the child grew, and was strengthened in spirit, and was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him
41 ܘܐܢܫܘܗܝ ܒܟܠ ܫܢܐ ܐܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܒܥܕܥܕܐ ܕܦܨܚܐ
. And his people went up to Jerusalem every year, at the feast of the Passover
42 ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܒܪ ܫܢܝܢ ܬܪܬܥܤܪܐ ܤܠܩܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܡܥܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܥܕܥܕܐ
. And when he was twelve years old, they went up to the celebration, as they were accustomed
43 ܘܟܕ ܫܠܡܘ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܦܟܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܛܠܝܐ ܦܫ ܠܗ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܝܘܤܦ ܘܐܡܗ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܘ
And when the days were ended, they returned, but the child Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, unbeknownst to Joseph and his mother
44 ܤܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܥܡ ܒܢܝ ܠܘܝܬܗܘܢ ܗܘ ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܡܪܕܐ ܝܘܡܐ ܚܕ ܒܥܐܘܗܝ ܠܘܬ ܐܢܫܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܠܘܬ ܡܢ ܕܝܕܥ ܠܗܘܢ
for they assumed he was with his companions. And when they had traveled a day's distance, they sought him among their relatives and acquaintances
45 ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘܗܝ ܘܗܦܟܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܬܘܒ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
And not finding him, they returned again to Jerusalem, in search of him
46 ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܐܫܟܚܘܗܝ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܟܕ ܝܬܒ ܡܨܥܬ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܘܫܡܥ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܘܡܫܐܠ ܠܗܘܢ
And after three days, they found him in the temple, sitting amid the teachers, listening, and asking them questions
47 ܘܬܡܝܗܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܒܚܟܡܬܗ ܘܒܦܬܓܡܘܗܝ

And when they saw him they were astonished And his mother said to him, My son, why have you done this to us ? Your father and I have been very worried and searching for you
49 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܒܝܬ ܐܒܝ ܘܠܐ ܠܝ ܕܐܗܘܐ
? He said to them, Why did you search for me ? Do you not know, that it is necessary for me to be in my Father's house
50 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܐܫܬܘܕܥܘ ܠܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
. But they did not grasp that which he had said to them

And he returned to Nazareth with them, and was dutiful to them. And his mother treasured all these things in her heart
52 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܪܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܩܘܡܬܗ ܘܒܚܟܡܬܗ ܘܒܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܢܝܢܫܐ
. And Jesus increased in stature, and in wisdom, and in grace, before God and men

And in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, in the rule of Pontius Pilate in Judaea, while Herod was Tetrarch in Galilee, and Philip his brother Tetrarch in Ituraea and in the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias Tetrarch of Abilene
2 ܒܪܒܘܬ ܟܗܢܘܬܐ ܕܚܢܢ ܘܕܩܝܦܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܥܠ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܒܪ ܙܟܪܝܐ ܒܚܘܪܒܐ
in the high priesthood of Annas and of Caiaphas, the word of God was upon John the son of Zachariah, in the desert
3 ܘܐܬܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܚܕܪܝ ܝܘܪܕܢܢ ܟܕ ܡܟܪܙ ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܠܫܘܒܩܢܐ ܕܚܛܗܐ
And he came into the whole region of the Jordan, proclaiming the baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins
4 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܕܡܠܐ ܕܐܫܥܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܩܠܐ ܕܩܪܐ ܒܚܘܪܒܐ ܛܝܒܘ ܐܘܪܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܬܪܘܨܘ ܒܦܩܥܬܐ ܫܒܝܠܐ ܠܐܠܗܢ
As it is written in the book of the proverbs of the prophet Isaiah, who said, The voice of one crying in the desert, Make ready the way of the Lord, and clear him a straight path
5 ܟܠܗܘܢ ܢܚܠܐ ܢܬܡܠܘܢ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܛܘܪܐ ܘܪܡܬܐ ܢܬܡܟܟܘܢ ܘܢܗܘܐ ܥܪܡܐ ܠܫܦܝܐ ܘܐܬܪܐ ܥܤܩܐ ܠܦܩܥܬܐ
All valleys shall be filled, and all mountains be lowered and the hill be leveled, and the rough place become smooth
6 ܘܢܚܙܐ ܟܠ ܒܤܪ ܚܝܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
. And all mankind shall see the Life which is of God
7 ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܠܡܥܡܕ ܝܠܕܐ ܕܐܟܕܢܐ ܡܢܘ ܚܘܝܟܘܢ ܠܡܥܪܩ ܡܢ ܪܘܓܙܐ ܕܥܬܝܕ
? And he said to the crowds who came to him to be baptized, You brood of vipers, who told you to flee from the wrath to come
8 ܥܒܕܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܦܐܪܐ ܕܫܘܝܢ ܠܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܬܫܪܘܢ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܒܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܕܐܒܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܡܩܡܘ ܒܢܝܐ ܠܐܒܪܗܡ
Bring forth, therefore, fruits supporting your repentance And do not start to say to yourselves, We have Abraham for our father, for I say to you, that God can, from these stones, raise up sons to Abraham
9 ܗܐ ܕܝܢ ܢܪܓܐ ܤܝܡ ܥܠ ܥܩܪܐ ܕܐܝܠܢܐ ܟܠ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܦܐܪܐ ܛܒܐ ܠܐ ܥܒܕ ܡܬܦܤܩ ܘܒܢܘܪܐ ܢܦܠ
And even now, the ax is put to the root of trees. Every tree not fruitful, is cut down, and thrown into the fire
10 ܘܡܫܐܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܥܒܕ
? And the crowds asked him, and said, What, then, should we do
11 ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܟܘܬܝܢܝܢ ܢܬܠ ܠܡܢ ܕܠܝܬ ܠܗ ܘܡܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܤܝܒܪܬܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܥܒܕ
He answered and said to them, Whoever has two coats, let him give [one] to him that has none, and whoever has food, let him do the same
12 ܘܐܬܘ ܐܦ ܡܟܤܐ ܠܡܥܡܕ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܡܢܐ ܢܥܒܕ
? And tax collectors also came to be baptized. And they said to him, Teacher, what should we do
13 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܬܬܒܥܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܝܬܝܪ ܥܠ ܡܐ ܕܦܩܝܕ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܡܬܒܥ

And soldiers likewise asked him, And what should we do? He told them, Be not accusative to anyone, and be not violent to anyone, and let your pay content you
15 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܡܤܒܪ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܐ ܥܠ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܡܬܚܫܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܠܒܗܘܢ ܕܕܠܡܐ ܗܘܝܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ
, And the people all wondered in their heart and contemplated whether John was the Messiah
16 ܥܢܐ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܐ ܗܐ ܡܥܡܕ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܡܝܐ ܐܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܗܘ ܕܚܝܠܬܢ ܡܢܝ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܫܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܫܪܐ ܥܪܩܐ ܕܡܤܢܘܗܝ ܗܘ ܢܥܡܕܟܘܢ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܒܢܘܪܐ
John answered, Behold, I baptize you with water, but after me comes one greater than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to loosen, he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire
17 ܗܘ ܕܐܚܝܕ ܪܦܫܐ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܘܡܕܟܐ ܐܕܪܘܗܝ ܘܚܛܐ ܟܢܫ ܠܐܘܨܪܘܗܝ ܘܬܒܢܐ ܢܘܩܕ ܒܢܘܪܐ ܕܠܐ ܕܥܟܐ
He holds his winnowing basket in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, and the wheat he gathers into his granary, and the chaff he will burn in fire that does not go out
18 ܐܦ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ ܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܤܒܪ ܠܥܡܐ
. And many other things also, he taught and preached to the people
19 ܗܪܘܕܤ ܕܝܢ ܛܛܪܪܟܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܬܟܤܤ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܥܠ ܗܪܘܕܝܐ ܐܢܬܬ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܘܥܠ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ
But Herod the Tetrarch, because he was censured by John, on the subject of Herodias the wife of his brother Philip, and on account of all the crimes he had done
20 ܐܘܤܦ ܐܦ ܗܕܐ ܥܠ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܘܚܒܫܗ ܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ
. and to this he added to his guilt, as he locked up John in prison
21 ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܥܡܕ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܘܐܦ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܡܕ ܘܟܕ ܡܨܠܐ ܐܬܦܬܚܘ ܫܡܝܐ
And it occurred, when all the people were baptized, that Jesus also was baptized. And as he prayed, the skies were opened
22 ܘܢܚܬܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܒܕܡܘܬ ܓܘܫܡܐ ܕܝܘܢܐ ܘܩܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܒܪܝ ܚܒܝܒܐ ܕܒܟ ܐܨܛܒܝܬ
and the Holy Spirit descended upon him, in a form like a dove, and there was a voice from heaven, which said, You are my beloved Son, in whom I am pleased

Chapter 4

1 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܡܠܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܗܦܟ ܡܢ ܝܘܪܕܢܢ ܘܕܒܪܬܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܠܚܘܪܒܐ
, And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan And the Spirit led him into the desert
2 ܝܘܡܬܐ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܕܢܬܢܤܐ ܡܢ ܐܟܠܩܪܨܐ ܘܠܐ ܠܥܤ ܡܕܡ ܒܗܢܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܘܟܕ ܫܠܡ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܚܪܬܐ ܟܦܢ
for forty days, to be tempted by the Deceiver And during that time, he ate nothing, and when he had at last ended them, he was hungry
3 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܟܠܩܪܨܐ ܐܢ ܒܪܗ ܐܢܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܟܐܦܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܠܚܡܐ
. And the Deceiver said to him, If you are the Son of God, command these rocks to turn into bread
4 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܟܬܝܒ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܠܚܡܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܚܝܐ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܟܠ ܦܬܓܡ ܕܐܠܗܐ

5 ܘܐܤܩܗ ܤܛܢܐ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܚܘܝܗ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܒܥܕܢܐ ܙܥܘܪܐ

And the Deceiver said to him, To you will I give dominion of all this , and the glory of it, which is mine to give, to whom I please
7 ܐܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܤܓܘܕ ܩܕܡܝ ܕܝܠܟ ܢܗܘܐ ܟܠܗ

8 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܟܬܝܒ ܗܘ ܕܠܡܪܝܐ ܐܠܗܟ ܬܤܓܘܕ ܘܠܗ ܒܠܚܘܕܘܗܝ ܬܦܠܘܚ
But Jesus replied, and said to him, It is written You shall alone worship the Lord your God, and him shall you serve
9 ܘܐܝܬܝܗ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ ܥܠ ܟܢܦܐ ܕܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܢ ܒܪܗ ܐܢܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܪܡܐ ܢܦܫܟ ܡܟܐ ܠܬܚܬ
And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a parapet of the temple, and said to him, If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here
10 ܟܬܝܒ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܡܠܐܟܘܗܝ ܢܦܩܕ ܥܠܝܟ ܕܢܢܛܪܘܢܟ

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, he has anointed me to proclaim glad news to the poor, and has sent me to heal the repentant in heart, to set the downtrodden free, and new sight to the blind, and to excuse the repentant with forgiveness [of their sins], 
19 ܘܠܡܟܪܙܘ ܫܢܬܐ ܡܩܒܠܬܐ ܠܡܪܝܐ

And he rolled up the scroll, and gave it to the assistant, and went and sat down. And in the synagogue all eyes were upon him
21 ܘܫܪܝ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܕܝܘܡܢܐ ܐܫܬܠܡ ܟܬܒܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܐܕܢܝܟܘܢ
. And he began to say to them, This day, this scripture which you have heard, is fulfilled
22 ܘܤܗܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܡܬܕܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܡܠܐ ܕܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܕܢܦܩܢ ܗܘܝ ܡܢ ܦܘܡܗ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܪ ܝܘܤܦ
? And all present admired the gracious words which proceeded from his mouth, and they said, Is not this the son of Joseph
23 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܟܒܪ ܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܝ ܡܬܠܐ ܗܢܐ ܐܤܝܐ ܐܤܐ ܢܦܫܟ ܘܟܠ ܕܫܡܥܢ ܕܥܒܕܬ ܒܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ ܥܒܕ ܐܦ ܗܪܟܐ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܟ
Jesus said to them, Perhaps, you will quote me this proverb, Physician, heal yourself, and whatever we have heard of your doing in Capernaum, do here also in your town
24 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܝܬ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܡܬܩܒܠ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܗ
. And he said to them, Truly I say to you, No prophet is ever accepted in his native town
25 ܫܪܪܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܤܓܝ ܐܪܡܠܬܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܝ ܒܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܒܝܘܡܝ ܐܠܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܟܕ ܐܬܬܚܕܘ ܫܡܝܐ ܫܢܝܢ ܬܠܬ ܘܝܪܚܐ ܫܬܐ ܘܗܘܐ ܟܦܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܐܪܥܐ
And I tell you truthfully, that there were many widows in the house of Israel, in the days of Elijah the prophet, when the heavens were closed up three years and six months, and there was a great famine in all the land
26 ܘܠܘܬ ܚܕܐ ܡܢܗܝܢ ܠܐ ܐܫܬܕܪ ܐܠܝܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܨܪܦܬ ܕܨܝܕܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܐܪܡܠܬܐ
. but to none of them was Elijah sent, except to Sarepta of Sidon, a widow
27 ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܓܪܒܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܒܝܬ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܒܝܘܡܝ ܐܠܝܫܥ ܢܒܝܐ ܘܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܐܬܕܟܝ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܢܥܡܢ ܐܪܡܝܐ
And there were many lepers in the house of Israel, in the days of Elisha the prophet, but none of them was cleansed, except Naaman the Syrian
28 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܚܡܬܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ
. And when they heard these things, those in the synagogue were all filled with indignation
29 ܘܩܡܘ ܐܦܩܘܗܝ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܓܒܝܢܐ ܕܛܘܪܐ ܗܘ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܗܘܢ ܒܢܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܕܢܫܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܡܢ ܫܩܝܦܐ
And they rose up, and expelled him out of the town, and lead him to the edge of the hill on which the town was built, that they might hurl him down from the rock ledge
30 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܒܪ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ ܘܐܙܠ
. But he vanished amid them , and slipped away
31 ܘܢܚܬ ܠܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܒܫܒܐ
. And he went down to Capernaum, a town in Galilee, and taught them on Sabbath days
32 ܘܬܡܝܗܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܝܘܠܦܢܗ ܕܡܫܠܛܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܠܬܗ
. And they were impressed by his teaching, for his words had authority
33 ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܫܐܕܐ ܛܢܦܐ ܘܙܥܩ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ
, And there was in the synagogue a man, in whom was an unclean spirit, and he cried out, with a loud voice
34 ܘܐܡܪ ܫܒܘܩܝܢܝ ܡܐ ܠܢ ܘܠܟ ܝܫܘܥ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܠܡܘܒܕܘܬܢ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܡܢ ܐܢܬ ܩܕܝܫܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
and said, Leave me alone, What have I to do with you, Jesus, you Nazarene? Have you come to destroy us ? I know you, who you are, the Holy One of God
35 ܘܟܐܐ ܒܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܤܟܘܪ ܦܘܡܟ ܘܦܘܩ ܡܢܗ ܘܫܕܝܗܝ ܫܐܕܐ ܒܡܨܥܬܐ ܘܢܦܩ ܡܢܗ ܟܕ ܠܐ ܤܪܚ ܒܗ ܡܕܡ
And Jesus said to him sharply, Shut your mouth, and come out of him And the unholy spirits threw him down in their midst, and came out of him, having not harmed him at all
36 ܘܬܡܗܐ ܪܒܐ ܐܚܕ ܠܟܠܢܫ ܘܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡ ܚܕܕܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܡܢܐ ܗܝ ܟܝ ܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܒܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܘܒܚܝܠܐ ܦܩܕܐ ܠܪܘܚܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܘܢܦܩܢ
And astonishment seized every one, and they talked together, and said, What a word is this! For, with authority and power, he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out
37 ܘܢܦܩ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܛܒܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܚܕܪܝܗܘܢ
. And his renown spread into all the surrounding region
38 ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܥܠ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܚܡܬܗ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܠܝܨܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܐܫܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܘܒܥܘ ܡܢܗ ܡܛܠܬܗ
And when Jesus went out of the synagogue, he entered the house of Simon And the mother-in-law of Simon was afflicted with a severe fever, and they sought him out on her behalf
39 ܘܩܡ ܠܥܠ ܡܢܗ ܘܟܐܐ ܒܐܫܬܗ ܘܫܒܩܬܗ ܘܡܚܕܐ ܩܡܬ ܘܡܫܡܫܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܗܘܢ
. And he stood over her, and addressed the fever, and it left her. And immediately she got up and waited on them
40 ܡܥܪܒܝ ܫܡܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܪܝܗܐ ܕܟܪܝܗܝܢ ܒܟܘܪܗܢܐ ܡܫܚܠܦܐ ܐܝܬܝܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܘܬܗ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܠ ܚܕ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܗ ܤܐܡ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܐܤܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ
And at sunset, all those that had sick persons with various afflictions, brought them to him, and he laid hands on every one of them, and cured them
41 ܘܢܦܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܦ ܫܐܕܐ ܡܢ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܟܕ ܡܙܥܩܝܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܟܐܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܗܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܕܝܕܥܝܢ ܕܗܘܝܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ
And unholy spirits went out of many, crying out and saying, You are the Messiah, the Son of God And he admonished them, and did not allow them to say that they knew him to be Messiah
42 ܘܠܨܦܪܗ ܕܝܘܡܐ ܢܦܩ ܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܚܘܪܒܐ ܘܟܢܫܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܘܐܬܘ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܐܚܕܘܗܝ ܕܠܐ ܢܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ
And at dawn, he withdrew to a secluded place. And the crowd searched him out, and found him, and tried to keep him from withdrawing from them
43 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܐܦ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܠܝ ܠܡܤܒܪܘ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܥܠ ܗܕܐ ܗܘ ܐܫܬܕܪܬ
. And Jesus said to them, I must announce God's sovereignty to other towns also, because that was why I sent
44 ܘܗܘ ܡܟܪܙ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ
. And he preached on in the synagogues of Galilee

Chapter 5

1 ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܟܢܫ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܟܢܫܐ ܠܡܫܡܥ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܗܘ ܩܐܡ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܝܡܬܐ ܕܓܢܤܪ
, And it happened that a crowd gathered about him, to hear the word of God as he stood by the shore of the lake of Gennesaret
2 ܚܙܐ ܤܦܝܢܐ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܕܩܝܡܢ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܝܡܬܐ ܘܨܝܕܐ ܕܤܠܩܘ ܡܢܗܝܢ ܘܡܫܝܓܝܢ ܡܨܝܕܬܗܘܢ
and he saw two boats moored by the lake, and the fishermen had left out of them, and were cleaning their nets
3 ܘܚܕܐ ܡܢܗܝܢ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܗܘܬ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܤܠܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܝܬܒ ܒܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܢܕܒܪܘܢܗ ܩܠܝܠ ܡܢ ܝܒܫܐ ܠܡܝܐ ܘܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܠܦ ܡܢ ܤܦܝܢܬܐ ܠܟܢܫܐ
And one of them belonged to Simon Kephas, and Jesus got in and sat in it And he told them to cast off a little from the shore, into the lake, and he sat down, and taught the crowd from the boat
4 ܘܟܕ ܫܬܩ ܡܢ ܡܡܠܠܗ ܐܡܪ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܒܪܘ ܠܥܘܡܩܐ ܘܐܪܡܘ ܡܨܝܕܬܟܘܢ ܠܨܝܕܐ
. And when he finished speaking, he said to Simon, Put out into the deep, and cast your net for a catch
5 ܥܢܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܪܒܝ ܠܠܝܐ ܟܠܗ ܠܐܝܢ ܘܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܐܚܕܢ ܥܠ ܡܠܬܟ ܕܝܢ ܪܡܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܨܝܕܬܐ
Simon replied to him, Master, we have been hard at it all night, and have caught nothing, but, if you say so, I will cast the net
6 ܘܟܕ ܗܕܐ ܥܒܕܘ ܚܒܫܘ ܢܘܢܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܛܒ ܘܡܨܛܪܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܨܝܕܬܗܘܢ
. And when they had done so, they caught many fish, so many that the net was near torn apart
7 ܘܪܡܙܘ ܠܚܒܪܝܗܘܢ ܕܒܤܦܝܢܬܐ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܕܢܐܬܘܢ ܢܥܕܪܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܡܠܘ ܐܢܝܢ ܤܦܝܢܐ ܬܪܬܝܗܝܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܩܪܝܒܢ ܗܘܝ ܠܡܛܒܥ
And they signaled to their partners in the other boat, to come and help them. These came and filled both the boats, so that they were nearly sinking
8 ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܝܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܢܦܠ ܩܕܡ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܟ ܡܪܝ ܦܪܘܩ ܠܟ ܡܢܝ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܐܢܐ ܚܛܝܐ
And when Simon Kephas saw it, he fell at the feet of Jesus, and said, I beg you, my Lord, that you leave me, for I am a sinful man
9 ܬܡܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܚܕܗ ܗܘܐ ܘܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܥܡܗ ܥܠ ܨܝܕܐ ܗܘ ܕܢܘܢܐ ܕܨܕܘ
, For amazement had overcome him, and all that were with him, at the catch of fish which they had made
10 ܗܟܘܬ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܠܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܒܢܝ ܙܒܕܝ ܕܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܫܘܬܦܐ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠ ܡܢ ܗܫܐ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܨܐܕ ܠܚܝܐ
and likewise James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners of Simon But Jesus said, Do not be afraid, from now on you will be netting men, unto Life
11 ܘܩܪܒܘ ܐܢܝܢ ܤܦܝܢܐ ܠܐܪܥܐ ܘܫܒܩܘ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܘܐܬܘ ܒܬܪܗ
. And they brought the boats to land, and left everything, and followed him
12 ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܚܕܐ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܬܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܡܠܐ ܟܠܗ ܓܪܒܐ ܚܙܐ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܘܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܐܦܘܗܝ ܘܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܝ ܐܢ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܬ ܠܡܕܟܝܘܬܝ
And when Jesus was in one of the towns, a man full of leprosy came, and seeing Jesus, bowed down to the ground, and said to him, My Lord, if you will so, you can cleanse me
13 ܘܦܫܛ ܐܝܕܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܪܒ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܬܕܟܐ ܘܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܐܙܠ ܡܢܗ ܓܪܒܗ ܘܐܬܕܟܝ
. And Jesus stretched out his hand to touch him, and said, I do will it, be cured And immediately, the leprosy left him
14 ܘܦܩܕܗ ܕܠܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܬܐܡܪ ܐܠܐ ܙܠ ܚܘܐ ܢܦܫܟ ܠܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܪܒ ܚܠܦ ܬܕܟܝܬܟ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܦܩܕ ܡܘܫܐ ܠܤܗܕܘܬܗܘܢ
And he instructed him, Tell no one, but go and show yourself to the priests, and give offerings for your healing, as Moses has prescribed, for proof to them
15 ܘܢܦܩ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܛܒܐ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܘܡܬܟܢܫ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܠܡܫܡܥ ܡܢܗ ܘܠܡܬܐܤܝܘ ܡܢ ܟܘܪܗܢܝܗܘܢ
. And his renown spread still more, and many people gathered to hear him, and to be cured of their afflictions
16 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܡܫܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܕܒܪܐ ܘܡܨܠܐ
. And he would withdraw into deserted places, and pray
17 ܘܗܘܐ ܒܚܕ ܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܟܕ ܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܝܬܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܡܠܦܝ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܕܐܬܘ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܟܠ ܩܘܪܝܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܕܝܗܘܕ ܘܕܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܚܝܠܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܐܤܝܘܬܗܘܢ
And one day when Jesus was teaching, that Pharisees and teachers of the Law were sitting by, who had come from all the villages of Galilee and of Judaea, and Jerusalem, and the power of the Lord was present to heal them
18 ܘܐܢܫܐ ܐܝܬܝܘ ܒܥܪܤܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܡܫܪܝܐ ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܢܥܠܘܢ ܢܤܝܡܘܢܝܗܝ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ
. And some men brought a paralytic, on a pallet, and tried to bring him in and place him before Jesus
19 ܘܟܕ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܕܐܝܟܢܐ ܢܥܠܘܢܝܗܝ ܡܛܠ ܤܘܓܐܐ ܕܥܡܐ ܤܠܩܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܓܪܐ ܘܫܒܘܗܝ ܥܡ ܥܪܤܗ ܡܢ ܬܛܠܝܠܐ ܠܡܨܥܬܐ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܕܝܫܘܥ
And when they could not get him thru the crowd of people, they went up to the roof, and from the tiles, lowered him down with the pallet, into the middle of the crowd, and in front of Jesus
20 ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܗܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘ ܡܫܪܝܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܫܒܝܩܝܢ ܠܟ ܚܛܗܝܟ
. And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, Friend, your sins are forgiven you
21 ܘܫܪܝܘ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܡܬܚܫܒܝܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܡܢܘ ܗܢܐ ܕܡܡܠܠ ܓܘܕܦܐ ܡܢܘ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܫܒܩ ܚܛܗܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ
? And the scribes and Pharisees began think this over, saying, Who is this that speaks blasphemy ? Who can forgive sins, but God alone
22 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܡܚܫܒܬܗܘܢ ܘܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܡܬܚܫܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܠܒܟܘܢ
? And Jesus knew their reasoning, and answered them, What are these thoughts in your heart
23 ܐܝܕܐ ܦܫܝܩܐ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܕܫܒܝܩܝܢ ܠܟ ܚܛܗܝܟ ܐܘ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܩܘܡ ܗܠܟ
? Which is the easier to say, Your sins are forgiven you, or to say, Get up and walk
24 ܕܬܕܥܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܫܠܝܛ ܗܘ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܕܢܫܒܘܩ ܚܛܗܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܡܫܪܝܐ ܠܟ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܩܘܡ ܫܩܘܠ ܥܪܤܟ ܘܙܠ ܠܒܝܬܟ
So you may know, that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins, he addressed the paralytic, Get up, I say to you, take your pallet, and return home
25 ܘܡܚܕܐ ܩܡ ܠܥܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܫܩܠ ܥܪܤܗ ܘܐܙܠ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܟܕ ܡܫܒܚ ܠܐܠܗܐ
. At once, he stood up before their eyes, and took up his pallet, and went home, glorifying God
26 ܘܬܡܗܐ ܐܚܕ ܠܟܠܢܫ ܘܡܫܒܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܬܕܡܪܬܐ
. At this, astonishment overcame every one, and they Praised God, and full of awe, they said, Today we have seen miracles
27 ܒܬܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܢܦܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܚܙܐ ܡܟܤܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܠܘܝ ܕܝܬܒ ܒܝܬ ܡܟܤܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ
. And afterward, Jesus went out and saw a tax collector, named Levi, sitting at the custom station, and said to him, Follow me
28 ܘܫܒܩ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܘܩܡ ܐܙܠ ܒܬܪܗ
. And he left every thing, and got up, and followed him
29 ܘܥܒܕ ܠܗ ܠܘܝ ܒܒܝܬܗ ܩܘܒܠܐ ܪܒܐ ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܡܟܤܐ ܘܕܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܤܡܝܟܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗܘܢ
And Levi prepared a great reception for him at his house, and there was a large crowd of tax collectors and others who joined with them to dine
30 ܘܪܛܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܠܡܢܐ ܥܡ ܡܟܤܐ ܘܚܛܝܐ ܐܟܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܫܬܝܢ
? And the scribes and Pharisees murmured, and said to his disciples, Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners
31 ܘܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܬܒܥܐ ܐܤܝܐ ܠܚܠܝܡܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܝܫ ܒܝܫ ܥܒܝܕܝܢ
. And Jesus answered and said to them, The healthy have no need of a doctor, but sick do
32 ܠܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܕܐܩܪܐ ܠܙܕܝܩܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܚܛܝܐ ܠܬܝܒܘܬܐ
. I came not to call the righteous to a change in heart, but, the sinners
33 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܡܢܐ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܨܝܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢܐܝܬ ܘܡܨܠܝܢ ܐܦ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܝܠܟ ܕܝܢ ܐܟܠܝܢ ܘܫܬܝܢ
? And they said to him, Why do the followers of John fast often, and pray, and also those of the Pharisees, but yours eat and drink
34 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܒܢܘܗܝ ܕܓܢܘܢܐ ܟܡܐ ܕܚܬܢܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܕܬܥܒܕܘܢ ܕܢܨܘܡܘܢ
. And he said to them, You cannot make the attendants of the bridegroom fast, while the groom is still with them
35 ܢܐܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܟܕ ܢܬܬܪܝܡ ܚܬܢܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܨܘܡܘܢ ܒܗܢܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ
. But the days will come, when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then, they will they fast
36 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܬܠܐ ܕܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܩܐܕ ܐܘܪܩܥܬܐ ܡܢ ܡܐܢܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܘܪܡܐ ܥܠ ܡܐܢܐ ܒܠܝܐ ܕܠܐ ܠܚܕܬܐ ܩܐܕ ܘܠܒܠܝܐ ܠܐ ܫܠܡܐ ܐܘܪܩܥܬܐ ܕܡܢ ܚܕܬܐ
And he told them a parable; No one tears a patch from a new coat, and puts it on old coat, if he does, not only will he have torn the new one, but the patch taken from the new coat will not match the old one
37 ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܪܡܐ ܚܡܪܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܒܙܩܐ ܒܠܝܬܐ ܘܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܡܒܙܥ ܚܡܪܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܠܙܩܐ ܘܗܘ ܚܡܪܐ ܡܬܐܫܕ ܘܙܩܐ ܐܒܕܢ
And no one puts new wine into old wineskins, otherwise, the new wine will burst the wineskins, and the wine will run out, and the wineskins ruined
38 ܐܠܐ ܚܡܪܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܒܙܩܐ ܚܕܬܬܐ ܪܡܝܢ ܘܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܡܬܢܛܪܝܢ
. So they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved
39 ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܫܬܐ ܚܡܪܐ ܥܬܝܩܐ ܘܡܚܕܐ ܒܥܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܐܡܪ ܓܝܪ ܥܬܝܩܐ ܒܤܝܡ
. And no one drinks old wine, and then calls for new, for he says, The old has flavor
