Chapter 1

1 ܪܫܐ ܕܐܘܢܓܠܝܘܢ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
. Here begins of the gospel of Jesus, the Messiah, the Son of God
2 ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܒܐܫܥܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܗܐ ܡܫܕܪ ܐܢܐ ܡܠܐܟܝ ܩܕܡ ܦܪܨܘܦܟ ܕܢܬܩܢ ܐܘܪܚܟ
. As it is written in Isaiah the prophet: Behold, I send my messenger before you, to prepare your way
3 ܩܠܐ ܕܩܪܐ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܛܝܒܘ ܐܘܪܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܐܫܘܘ ܫܒܝܠܘܗܝ
. A herald's voice in the desert: Make ready the way of the Lord; make straight his paths
4 ܗܘܐ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܡܥܡܕ ܘܡܟܪܙ ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܠܫܘܒܩܢܐ ܕܚܛܗܐ
. John baptized in the desert, and preached the baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins
5 ܘܢܦܩܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܠܗ ܟܘܪ ܕܝܗܘܕ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܡܥܡܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܒܝܘܪܕܢܢ ܟܕ ܡܘܕܝܢ ܒܚܛܗܝܗܘܢ
. And he went out to all regions of Judaea, and the people of Jerusalem; and he baptized them in the river Jordan, while they confessed their sins
6 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܠܒܝܫ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܘܫܐ ܕܤܥܪܐ ܕܓܡܠܐ ܘܐܤܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܥܪܩܬܐ ܕܡܫܟܐ ܒܚܨܘܗܝ ܘܡܐܟܘܠܬܗ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܗܘܬ ܩܡܨܐ ܘܕܒܫܐ ܕܒܪܐ
. And this John was clad in clothes of camels' hair; and wore a loin cloth about him; and his food was grasshoppers and wild honey
7 ܘܡܟܪܙ ܗܘܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܐ ܐܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ ܕܚܝܠܬܢ ܡܢܝ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܫܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܓܗܢ ܐܫܪܐ ܥܪܩܐ ܕܡܤܢܘܗܝ
. And he preached, and said: Behold, after me comes one more powerful than I, of whom I am not worthy to stoop and untie the straps of his sandals
8 ܐܢܐ ܐܥܡܕܬܟܘܢ ܒܡܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܢܥܡܕܟܘܢ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
. I have baptized you in water; but he will baptize you in the Holy Spirit
9 ܘܗܘܐ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܐܬܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܢܨܪܬ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܐܬܥܡܕ ܒܝܘܪܕܢܢ ܡܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ
. During that time, Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee, and was baptized in the Jordan by John 
10 ܘܡܚܕܐ ܕܤܠܩ ܡܢ ܡܝܐ ܚܙܐ ܕܐܤܬܕܩܘ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܐܝܟ ܝܘܢܐ ܕܢܚܬܬ ܥܠܘܗܝ
. And on his coming from the water, he saw the heavens torn apart, and the Spirit descending like a dove upon him
11 ܘܩܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܒܪܝ ܚܒܝܒܐ ܒܟ ܐܨܛܒܝܬ
. And there was a voice from the heavens: You are my beloved Son, on you my favor rests
12 ܘܡܚܕܐ ܐܦܩܬܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܠܡܕܒܪܐ
: And thereupon the Spirit sent him into the desert
13 ܘܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܟܕ ܡܬܢܤܐ ܡܢ ܤܛܢܐ ܘܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܥܡ ܚܝܘܬܐ ܘܡܫܡܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ
and he was there in the desert forty days, being tested by Satan. And he was with the wild beasts; and angels administered to him
14 ܒܬܪ ܕܐܫܬܠܡ ܕܝܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܬܐ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܡܟܪܙ ܗܘܐ ܤܒܪܬܐ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
, After John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee,  and proclaimed the good news, of the Realm of God 
15 ܘܐܡܪ ܫܠܡ ܠܗ ܙܒܢܐ ܘܡܛܬ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܬܘܒܘ ܘܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܤܒܪܬܐ
and said: This is the time of fulfillment, and the Realm of God is close.  Reform yourself,  and believe the gospel
16 ܘܟܕ ܡܗܠܟ ܚܕܪܝ ܝܡܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ ܚܙܐ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܠܐܢܕܪܐܘܤ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܕܪܡܝܢ ܡܨܝܕܬܐ ܒܝܡܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܨܝܕܐ
And as he walked along the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and  Andrew, his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen
17 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܬܘ ܒܬܪܝ ܘܐܥܒܕܟܘܢ ܨܝܕܐ ܕܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ
. And Jesus said to them: Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men
18 ܘܡܚܕܐ ܫܒܩܘ ܡܨܝܕܬܗܘܢ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ
. And immediately they left their nets, and followed him
19 ܘܟܕ ܥܒܪ ܩܠܝܠ ܚܙܐ ܠܝܥܩܘܒ ܒܪ ܙܒܕܝ ܘܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܘܐܦ ܠܗܘܢ ܒܤܦܝܢܬܐ ܕܡܬܩܢܝܢ ܡܨܝܕܬܗܘܢ
. And as he passed further, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John, his brother, who also were in a boat, and mending their nets
20 ܘܩܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܡܚܕܐ ܫܒܩܘ ܠܙܒܕܝ ܐܒܘܗܘܢ ܒܤܦܝܢܬܐ ܥܡ ܐܓܝܪܐ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ
. And he called them: and immediately they left Zebedee, their father, in the boat, with the hired laborers, and went after him
21 ܘܟܕ ܥܠܘ ܠܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ ܡܚܕܐ ܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܒܫܒܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܗܘܢ
. And  when they entered Capernaum, he shortly thereafter taught on the Sabbath in their synagogues
22 ܘܬܡܝܗܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܝܘܠܦܢܗ ܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܟ ܡܫܠܛܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܤܦܪܝܗܘܢ
. And they were astonished at his teaching; for he taught them as having authority, and not like the scribes
23 ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܛܡܐܬܐ ܘܩܥܐ
, And in their synagogue was a man, in whom was an unclean spirit; and he shrieked
24 ܘܐܡܪ ܡܐ ܠܢ ܘܠܟ ܝܫܘܥ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܠܡܘܒܕܘܬܢ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܡܢ ܐܢܬ ܩܕܝܫܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
and said: What have we to do with you ? Jesus, you Nazarene. Have you come to destroy us ? I know you, who you are, the Holy One of God
25 ܘܟܐܐ ܒܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܤܟܘܪ ܦܘܡܟ ܘܦܘܩ ܡܢܗ
. And Jesus reprimanded him, and said: Shut your mouth, and come out of him
26 ܘܫܕܬܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܘܩܥܬ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܢܦܩܬ ܡܢܗ
. And the unclean spirit threw him down, and shrieked with a loud voice, and came out of him
27 ܘܐܬܕܡܪܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܕ ܥܡ ܚܕ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܡܢܐ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܘܡܢܘ ܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܕܒܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܘܐܦ ܠܪܘܚܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܦܩܕ ܘܡܫܬܡܥܢ ܠܗ
And they were all amazed, and asked one another, and said: What is this ? What new teaching is this ? For with authority he commands the unclean spirits, and they obey him
28 ܘܡܚܕܐ ܢܦܩ ܛܒܗ ܒܟܠܗ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ
. And from then on his reputation spread out into all the land of Galilee
29 ܘܢܦܩܘ ܡܢ ܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܕܐܢܕܪܐܘܤ ܥܡ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ
. And he leaving the synagogue, he entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John
30 ܘܚܡܬܗ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܪܡܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܐܫܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܥܠܝܗ
. And Simon's mother-in-law was lying ill with a fever: and they told him about her
31 ܘܩܪܒ ܐܚܕܗ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ ܘܡܚܕܐ ܫܒܩܬܗ ܐܫܬܗ ܘܡܫܡܫܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܗܘܢ
. And he came, and took her hand, and helped her up; and the fever then left her, and she attended to them
32 ܒܪܡܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܡܥܪܒܝ ܫܡܫܐ ܐܝܬܝܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܝܫܐܝܬ ܥܒܝܕܝܢ ܘܕܝܘܢܐ
. And in the evening, after sunset, they brought to him all them that were diseased, and the possessed
33 ܘܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܟܠܗ ܟܢܝܫܐ ܗܘܬ ܥܠ ܬܪܥܐ
. And all the town was gathered at the door
34 ܘܐܤܝ ܠܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܒܝܫܐܝܬ ܥܒܝܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܟܘܪܗܢܐ ܡܫܚܠܦܐ ܘܕܝܘܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܐܦܩ ܘܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܕܝܘܐ ܕܢܡܠܠܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܝܕܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
And he healed many who had various diseases, and expelled many unholy spirits; and he did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew him
35 ܘܒܨܦܪܐ ܩܕܡ ܩܡ ܛܒ ܘܐܙܠ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܚܘܪܒܐ ܘܬܡܢ ܡܨܠܐ ܗܘܐ
. And in the morning, he arose before others, and withdrew to a lonely place, and there prayed
36 ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܕܥܡܗ
. And Simon and his companions searched for him
37 ܘܟܕ ܐܫܟܚܘܗܝ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܠܟ
. And when they found him, they said to him: Every body is looking for you
38 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܠܟܘ ܠܩܘܪܝܐ ܘܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܩܪܝܒܢ ܕܐܦ ܬܡܢ ܐܟܪܙ ܠܗܕܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܬܝܬ
And he said to them: Let us go into the nearby villages and towns; so I may preach, because that is what I have come to do
39 ܘܡܟܪܙ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܠܗܝܢ ܟܢܘܫܬܗܘܢ ܒܟܠܗ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܡܦܩ ܫܐܕܐ
. And he preached in all their congregations, in all Galilee, and cast out unholy spirits
40 ܘܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܓܪܒܐ ܘܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܘܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܢ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܬ ܠܡܕܟܝܘܬܝ
. And a leper came to him, and fell at his feet, and begged him, and said to him: If you will it, you can make me clean
41 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܘܦܫܛ ܐܝܕܗ ܩܪܒ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܬܕܟܐ
. And Jesus had compassion on him, and stretched out his hand, and touched him, and said: I do will it; you are clean
42 ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܐܙܠ ܓܪܒܗ ܡܢܗ ܘܐܬܕܟܝ
. And in that moment, his leprosy left from him, and he became clean
43 ܘܟܐܐ ܒܗ ܘܐܦܩܗ
, And he warned him, and sent him away
44 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܚܙܝ ܠܡܐ ܠܐܢܫ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܐܠܐ ܙܠ ܚܘܐ ܢܦܫܟ ܠܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܪܒ ܩܘܪܒܢܐ ܚܠܦ ܬܕܟܝܬܟ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܦܩܕ ܡܘܫܐ ܠܤܗܕܘܬܗܘܢ
and he said to him: Do not tell anybody; but go, show yourself to the priests, and offer an offering on account of your purification, as Moses commanded, as a testimony to them
45 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܢܦܩ ܫܪܝ ܗܘܐ ܡܟܪܙ ܤܓܝ ܘܐܛܒܗ ܠܡܠܬܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܫܟܚ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܓܠܝܐܝܬ ܕܢܥܘܠ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܒܪ ܗܘܐ ܒܐܬܪܐ ܚܘܪܒܐ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܡܢ ܟܠ ܕܘܟܐ
And as he went out, he began to proclaim publicly about the matter; so that Jesus could not openly go into any town, but stayed in deserted places; and they came to him from everywhere

Chapter 2

1 ܘܥܠ ܬܘܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ ܠܝܘܡܬܐ ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܕܒܒܝܬܐ ܗܘ
, And Jesus again entered into Capernaum, after a few days. And when they heard that he was at a house
2 ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܐܫܟܚ ܐܚܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܦܠܐ ܩܕܡ ܬܪܥܐ ܘܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܡܠܬܐ
. many gathered there, so that it could not hold them, even around the door. And he delivered sermons to them
3 ܘܐܬܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܐܝܬܝܘ ܠܗ ܡܫܪܝܐ ܟܕ ܫܩܝܠܝܢ ܠܗ ܒܝܬ ܐܪܒܥܐ
. And they came to him and brought to him a paralytic, carried by four persons
4 ܘܕܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܠܡܬܩܪܒܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܡܛܠ ܟܢܫܐ ܤܠܩܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܓܪܐ ܘܐܪܝܡܘ ܬܛܠܝܠܐ ܕܐܬܪ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܫܒܘܗ ܥܪܤܐ ܕܪܡܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܡܫܪܝܐ
And as they could not get near him on account of the crowd, they climbed onto the roof, and removed the roofing of the place where Jesus was, and lowered down the bedding on which the paralytic laid
5 ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܗܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘ ܡܫܪܝܐ ܒܪܝ ܫܒܝܩܝܢ ܠܟ ܚܛܗܝܟ
. And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic: My son, your sins are forgiven
6 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܡܢ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܝܬܒܝܢ ܘܡܬܪܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܠܒܗܘܢ
: And there were some scribes and Pharisees there, who sat and thought in their hearts
7 ܕܡܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܓܘܕܦܐ ܡܢܘ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܫܒܩ ܚܛܗܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܚܕ ܐܠܗܐ
? Who is this speaking blasphemy ? Who can forgive sins, except God alone
8 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܒܪܘܚܗ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܡܬܪܥܝܢ ܒܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܡܬܪܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܒܠܒܟܘܢ
? And Jesus saw their faith, that they thought this to themselves; and he said to them: Why do you hold this in your heart
9 ܐܝܕܐ ܦܫܝܩܐ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܠܡܫܪܝܐ ܕܫܒܝܩܝܢ ܠܟ ܚܛܗܝܟ ܐܘ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܕܩܘܡ ܫܩܘܠ ܥܪܤܟ ܘܗܠܟ
? Which is the easier, to say to a paralytic, Your sins are forgiven ? or to say, Get up, take up your bedding, and walk
10 ܕܬܕܥܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܫܠܝܛ ܗܘ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܠܡܫܒܩ ܚܛܗܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܡܫܪܝܐ
, But so you may know that the Son of man has power on earth to forgive sins, he said to the paralytic
11 ܠܟ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܩܘܡ ܫܩܘܠ ܥܪܤܟ ܘܙܠ ܠܒܝܬܟ
. I say to you, Get up, take your bedding, and go to your house
12 ܘܩܡ ܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܘܫܩܠ ܥܪܤܗ ܘܢܦܩ ܠܥܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܢܬܕܡܪܘܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܢܫܒܚܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܡܬܘܡ ܚܙܝܢ ܗܟܢܐ
And he stood up at that instant, took up his bedding, and left in sight of them all: so that all were amazed, and praised God, saying: We never saw anything like this
13 ܘܢܦܩ ܬܘܒ ܠܘܬ ܝܡܐ ܘܟܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܐܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ
. And he went again to the sea; and all the crowd came to him, and he taught them
14 ܘܟܕ ܥܒܪ ܚܙܐ ܠܠܘܝ ܒܪ ܚܠܦܝ ܕܝܬܒ ܒܝܬ ܡܟܤܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ ܘܩܡ ܐܙܠ ܒܬܪܗ
And as he passed along he saw Levi the son of Alpheus sitting among the tax collectors. And he said to him: Follow me. And he got up and followed him
15 ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܤܡܝܟ ܒܒܝܬܗ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܟܤܐ ܘܚܛܝܐ ܤܡܝܟܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܥܡ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܒܬܪܗ
And it was so, that as he sat in his house, many tax collectors and sinners sat with Jesus and with his disciples, for there were many who followed him
16 ܘܤܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܟܕ ܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܕܠܥܤ ܥܡ ܡܟܤܐ ܘܥܡ ܚܛܝܐ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܡܢܘ ܥܡ ܡܟܤܐ ܘܚܛܝܐ ܐܟܠ ܘܫܬܐ
And when the scribes and Pharisees saw that he ate with tax collectors and with sinners, they said to his disciples: Why does he eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners
17 ܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܤܢܝܩܝܢ ܚܠܝܡܐ ܥܠ ܐܤܝܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܝܫ ܒܝܫ ܥܒܝܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܕܐܩܪܐ ܠܙܕܝܩܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܚܛܝܐ
When Jesus heard that, he said to them: The healthy have no need of a doctor, those beset with diseases do: I came, not to call the self-righteous, but sinners
18 ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܨܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܬܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܡܢܐ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܨܝܡܝܢ ܘܬܠܡܝܕܝܟ ܕܝܠܟ ܠܐ ܨܝܡܝܢ
And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees were accustomed to fast; and they came and said to him: Why are the disciples of John and of the Pharisees accustomed to fast, and your disciples do not fast
19 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܡܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܒܢܘܗܝ ܕܓܢܘܢܐ ܟܡܐ ܕܚܬܢܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܗܘ ܕܢܨܘܡܘܢ ܠܐ
. Jesus said to them: Can the guests of the wedding fast so long as the bridegroom is still with them ? No
20 ܢܐܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܡܐ ܕܐܫܬܩܠ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܚܬܢܐ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܨܘܡܘܢ ܒܗܘ ܝܘܡܐ
. But the days will come, when the bridegroom will be taken from them, and then they will fast on that day
21 ܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܪܡܐ ܐܘܪܩܥܬܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܘܚܐܛ ܥܠ ܡܐܢܐ ܒܠܝܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܤܒܐ ܡܠܝܘܬܗ ܗܝ ܚܕܬܐ ܡܢ ܒܠܝܐ ܘܗܘܐ ܤܕܩܐ ܝܬܝܪܐ
No one takes a patch of new cloth and sews it upon an old garment, lest the shrinking of the new should pull from the old, and the tear become greater
22 ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܪܡܐ ܚܡܪܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܒܙܩܐ ܒܠܝܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܚܡܪܐ ܡܨܪܐ ܠܙܩܐ ܘܙܩܐ ܐܒܕܢ ܘܚܡܪܐ ܡܬܐܫܕ ܐܠܐ ܪܡܝܢ ܚܡܪܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܒܙܩܐ ܚܕܬܬܐ
And no one puts new wine into old wineskins, lest the wine rupture the wineskins, and the wineskins be ruined, and the wine spilled; so they put new wine into new wineskins
23 ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܐܙܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܫܒܬܐ ܒܝܬ ܙܪܥܐ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܡܗܠܟܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܠܓܝܢ ܫܒܠܐ
. And so it was, that as Jesus on a Sabbath walked in the fields, his disciples walked and pull off heads of grain
24 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܚܙܝ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܒܫܒܬܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܠܐ ܫܠܝܛ
? And the Pharisees said to him: Look, how on the Sabbath, they do that which is not permitted
25 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐ ܡܡܬܘܡ ܩܪܝܬܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܕ ܕܘܝܕ ܟܕ ܐܤܬܢܩ ܘܟܦܢ ܗܘ ܘܕܥܡܗ
? Jesus said to them: Have you never read what David did, when he had need and was hungry, he and his companions
26 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܥܠ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܟܕ ܐܒܝܬܪ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܠܚܡܐ ܕܦܬܘܪܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܐܟܠ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܫܠܝܛ ܠܡܐܟܠ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܠܟܗܢܐ ܘܝܗܒ ܐܦ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܡܗ ܗܘܘ
How he entered the house of God, when Abiathar was high priest, and ate the bread off the Lord's table, which it was not permitted for any but priests to eat, and gave it to those also with him
27 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܫܒܬܐ ܡܛܠ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܐܬܒܪܝܬ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܡܛܠ ܫܒܬܐ
. And he said to them: The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath
28 ܡܪܗ ܗܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܘܐܦ ܕܫܒܬܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
. Therefore also the Son of man is lord even of the Sabbath

Chapter 3

1 ܘܥܠ ܬܘܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܕܝܒܝܫܐ ܐܝܕܗ
. And Jesus returned to a synagogue where there was a man, whose hand was withered
2 ܘܢܛܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܕܐܢ ܡܐܤܐ ܠܗ ܒܫܒܬܐ ܢܩܛܪܓܘܢܝܗܝ
. And they watched him, that if he should heal on the Sabbath, so they may accuse him
3 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܝܒܝܫܐ ܐܝܕܗ ܩܘܡ ܒܡܨܥܬܐ
. And he said to the man with the withered hand: Stand up here among us
4 ܐܡܪ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܠܝܛ ܒܫܒܬܐ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܕܛܒ ܐܘ ܕܒܝܫ ܢܦܫܐ ܠܡܚܝܘ ܐܘ ܠܡܘܒܕܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܫܬܝܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ
. And he said: Is it unlawful to do good on the Sabbath, or to do evil ? to give life to a person, or to destroy ? But they remained silent
5 ܘܚܪ ܒܗܘܢ ܒܚܡܬܐ ܟܕ ܟܪܝܐ ܠܗ ܥܠ ܩܫܝܘܬ ܠܒܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܦܫܘܛ ܐܝܕܟ ܘܦܫܛ ܘܬܩܢܬ ܐܝܕܗ
And he looked on them with anger, and grieved of their stubborn hearts. And he said to the man: Stretch forth your hand. And he stretched it forth, and his hand was restored
6 ܘܢܦܩܘ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܥܡ ܕܒܝܬ ܗܪܘܕܤ ܘܡܠܟܐ ܢܤܒܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܢܘܒܕܘܢܝܗܝ
. And the Pharisees went out, that very moment, with the Herodians, and plotted against him, how they might destroy him
7 ܘܝܫܘܥ ܥܡ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܠܘܬ ܝܡܐ ܘܥܡܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܢܩܦܗ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܢ ܝܗܘܕ
, And Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the sea. And many people joined him from Galilee, and from Judaea
8 ܘܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܡܢ ܐܕܘܡ ܘܡܢ ܥܒܪܐ ܕܝܘܪܕܢܢ ܘܡܢ ܨܘܪ ܘܡܢ ܨܝܕܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܗܘܘ ܟܠ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܬܘ ܠܘܬܗ
and from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan, and from Tyre, and from Sidon: when they heard all that he did, great crowds came to him
9 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܢܩܪܒܘܢ ܠܗ ܤܦܝܢܬܐ ܡܛܠ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܚܒܨܘܢܝܗܝ
. And he told his disciples to bring him a boat, on account of the crowd, to keep him from being crushed
10 ܤܓܝܐܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܐܤܐ ܗܘܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܢܦܠܝܢ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܡܛܠ ܕܢܬܩܪܒܘܢ ܠܗ
. For he had healed many, so that they pushed toward him, in order to touch him
11 ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܚܘܬܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܡܐ ܕܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܢܦܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܩܥܝܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
. And those who were afflicted with unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down and cried out, and said: You are the Son of God
12 ܘܤܓܝ ܟܐܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܗܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܓܠܘܢܝܗܝ
. And he ordered all of them, not to reveal him
13 ܘܤܠܩ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܘܩܪܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܘܬܗ
. And he went up a mountain, and summoned whom he decided on; and they came to him
14 ܘܓܒܐ ܬܪܥܤܪ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܥܡܗ ܘܕܢܫܕܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܢܟܪܙܘܢ
, And he chose twelve to be with him, who he would send out to preach
15 ܘܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܫܠܝܛܝܢ ܕܢܐܤܘܢ ܟܪܝܗܐ ܘܢܦܩܘܢ ܕܝܘܐ
. and who would have power to heal the sick, and to expel unholy spirits
16 ܘܫܡܝ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܫܡܐ ܟܐܦܐ
. And to Simon he gave the name of Kephas
17 ܘܠܝܥܩܘܒ ܒܪ ܙܒܕܝ ܘܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܕܝܥܩܘܒ ܤܡ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܡܐ ܒܢܝ ܪܓܫܝ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܒܢܝ ܪܥܡܐ
. And to James the son of Zebedee and to John the brother of James, he gave the name of B'neRakshi, that is, Sons of Thunder
18 ܘܐܢܕܪܐܘܤ ܘܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܘܒܪ ܬܘܠܡܝ ܘܡܬܝ ܘܬܐܘܡܐ ܘܝܥܩܘܒ ܒܪ ܚܠܦܝ ܘܬܕܝ ܘܫܡܥܘܢ ܩܢܢܝܐ
, And also Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alpheus, and Thaddeus, and Simon the Zealot
19 ܘܝܗܘܕܐ ܤܟܪܝܘܛܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܫܠܡܗ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܒܝܬܐ
: And Judas Iscariot, who was to betray him. And they came to the house
20 ܘܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܟܢܫܐ ܬܘܒ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܫܟܚܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܚܡܐ ܠܡܐܟܠ
. and the crowd gathered again, so many that they could not eat bread
21 ܘܫܡܥܘ ܐܚܝܢܘܗܝ ܘܢܦܩܘ ܠܡܐܚܕܗ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܢ ܗܘܢܗ ܢܦܩ
. And his family heard, and went out to take care of him; for they said: He is out of his mind
22 ܘܤܦܪܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܢܚܬܘ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܥܠܙܒܘܒ ܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܘܒܪܫܐ ܕܕܝܘܐ ܡܦܩ ܕܝܘܐ
. And those scribes that had come down from Jerusalem, said: Beelzebub is in him; and by the prince of demons he expels demons
23 ܘܩܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܒܡܬܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܤܛܢܐ ܠܤܛܢܐ ܠܡܦܩܘ
? And Jesus called them, and said to them, by parables : How can Satan expel Satan
24 ܐܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܬܬܦܠܓ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܠܡܩܡ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܗܝ
. For if a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand
25 ܘܐܢ ܒܝܬܐ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܢܬܦܠܓ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܒܝܬܐ ܗܘ ܠܡܩܡ
. And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand
26 ܘܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܤܛܢܐ ܩܡ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܘܐܬܦܠܓ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܩܡ ܐܠܐ ܚܪܬܗ ܗܝ
. And if Satan rises up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but is finished
27 ܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܫܟܚ ܕܢܥܘܠ ܠܒܝܬ ܚܤܝܢܐ ܘܢܚܛܘܦ ܡܐܢܘܗܝ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܠܚܤܝܢܐ ܢܐܤܘܪ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܒܝܬܗ ܢܒܘܙ
.No one can enter the house of a strong man, and plunder his goods, unless he first ties up the strong man; then he may rob his house
28 ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܚܛܗܐ ܘܓܘܕܦܐ ܕܢܓܕܦܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܢܫܬܒܩܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ
: Truly I say to you: All sins, and the blasphemies that men may utter, may be forgiven them
29 ܡܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܓܕܦ ܥܠ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܠܝܬ ܠܗ ܫܘܒܩܢܐ ܠܥܠܡ ܐܠܐ ܡܚܝܒ ܗܘ ܠܕܝܢܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
. but whoever shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, will never be forgiven; he carries the guilt of his sin for eternity
30 ܡܛܠ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܐܝܬ ܒܗ
. Because they had said: An unclean spirit is in him
31 ܘܐܬܘ ܐܡܗ ܘܐܚܘܗܝ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܠܒܪ ܘܫܕܪܘ ܕܢܩܪܘܢܝܗܝ ܠܗܘܢ
. And his mother and his brothers came, and, standing outside, sent to call him to them
32 ܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܚܕܪܘܗܝ ܟܢܫܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܗܐ ܐܡܟ ܘܐܚܝܟ ܠܒܪ ܒܥܝܢ ܠܟ
. And the crowds were sitting around him, and they said to him: Your mother and your brothers call for you outside
33 ܘܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܗܝ ܐܡܝ ܘܡܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܚܝ
? He answered, and said to them: Who is my mother? and who are my brothers
34 ܘܚܪ ܒܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܬܒܝܢ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܐ ܐܡܝ ܘܗܐ ܐܚܝ
! And he looked upon those who sat by him, and said: Behold my mother ! and, behold my brothers
35 ܡܢ ܕܢܥܒܕ ܓܝܪ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܗܘܝܘ ܐܚܝ ܘܚܬܝ ܘܐܡܝ
. For whoever shall do the will of God, he is my brother, and my sister, and my mother

Chapter 4

1 ܬܘܒ ܕܝܢ ܫܪܝ ܗܘܐ ܡܠܦ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܝܡܐ ܘܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܤܩ ܢܬܒ ܠܗ ܒܤܦܝܢܬܐ ܒܝܡܐ ܘܟܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܩܐܡ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܝܡܐ
On another occasion he began to teach by the lakeside. And great crowds were gathered about him; so that he boarded and sat in a boat on the water, and all the crowd stood on the shore
2 ܘܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܒܡܬܠܐ ܤܓܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܒܝܘܠܦܢܗ
: And he taught them much by parables. And in his teaching, he said
3 ܫܡܥܘ ܗܐ ܢܦܩ ܙܪܘܥܐ ܠܡܙܪܥ
. Hear you: Behold a farmer went out to sow
4 ܘܟܕ ܙܪܥ ܐܝܬ ܕܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܐܬܬ ܦܪܚܬܐ ܘܐܟܠܬܗ
. And as he sowed, some seed fell on the side of the path; and a bird came, and ate it
5 ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܫܘܥܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܠܝܬ ܐܪܥܐ ܤܓܝ ܘܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܒܠܨ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܥܘܡܩܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ
. And some fell on rock, so that it had not any earth; and it soon sprouted, yet it had no depth of earth
6 ܟܕ ܕܢܚ ܕܝܢ ܫܡܫܐ ܚܡܐ ܘܡܛܠ ܕܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܥܩܪܐ ܝܒܫ
. When the sun came up, it wilted; and because it had no root, it dried up
7 ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܦܠ ܒܝܬ ܟܘܒܐ ܘܤܠܩܘ ܟܘܒܐ ܘܚܢܩܘܗܝ ܘܦܐܪܐ ܠܐ ܝܗܒ
. And some fell among thorns. And the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded not
8 ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܛܒܬܐ ܘܤܠܩ ܘܪܒܐ ܘܝܗܒ ܦܐܪܐ ܐܝܬ ܕܬܠܬܝܢ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܫܬܝܢ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܡܐܐ
. And some fell on good ground, and came up, and grew, and yielded fruits; some thirty-, some sixty-, and some a hundredfold
9 ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܐܕܢܐ ܕܢܫܡܥ ܢܫܡܥ
. And he said: Whoever has ears to hear me, let him listen
10 ܟܕ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܒܠܚܘܕܝܗܘܢ ܫܐܠܘܗܝ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܥܡܗ ܥܡ ܬܪܥܤܪܬܗ ܡܬܠܐ ܗܘ
. And when they were by themselves, those present with the twelve, asked him about this parable
11 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܟܘܢ ܝܗܝܒ ܠܡܕܥ ܐܪܙܐ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܒܪܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܒܡܬܠܐ ܗܘܐ
: And Jesus said to them: To you it is given to know the mystery of the Realm of God; but to the others outside, all is in parables
12 ܕܟܕ ܚܙܝܢ ܢܚܙܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܢܚܙܘܢ ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܢܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܢܤܬܟܠܘܢ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܬܦܢܘܢ ܘܢܫܬܒܩܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܚܛܗܝܗܘܢ
that when they look, they may see and not see, and when they listen, they may hear and not understand; lest they repent, and their sins be forgiven them
13 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ ܠܡܬܠܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܐܝܟܢܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܡܬܠܐ ܬܕܥܘܢ
? And he said to them: Do you not understand this parable ? And how will you understand all other parables
14 ܙܪܘܥܐ ܕܙܪܥ ܡܠܬܐ ܙܪܥ
. The farmer that sowed, sowed the word
15 ܗܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܠ ܝܕ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܡܙܕܪܥܐ ܒܗܘܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܘܡܐ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܡܚܕܐ ܐܬܐ ܤܛܢܐ ܘܫܩܠ ܠܗ ܠܡܠܬܐ ܕܙܪܝܥܐ ܒܠܒܗܘܢ
And those by the side of the path, are they in whom the word is sown; and as soon as they have heard it, Satan comes, and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts
16 ܘܗܢܘܢ ܕܥܠ ܫܘܥܐ ܐܙܕܪܥܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܡܐ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܡܠܬܐ ܡܚܕܐ ܒܚܕܘܬܐ ܡܩܒܠܝܢ ܠܗ
. And those sown on the rock, are they who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with joy
17 ܘܠܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܩܪܐ ܒܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܕܙܒܢܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܡܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܐܘ ܪܕܘܦܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܡܠܬܐ ܥܓܠ ܡܬܟܫܠܝܢ
And those who have no root to them, but are passing; and when there is affliction or persecution on account of the word, they are soon stumbled
18 ܘܗܢܘܢ ܕܒܝܬ ܟܘܒܐ ܡܙܕܪܥܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܡܠܬܐ
, And those sown among thorns, are they that hear the word
19 ܘܪܢܝܐ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܛܘܥܝܝ ܕܥܘܬܪܐ ܘܫܪܟܐ ܕܪܓܝܓܬܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܥܐܠܢ ܚܢܩܢ ܠܗ ܠܡܠܬܐ ܘܕܠܐ ܦܐܪܐ ܗܘܝܐ
and the cares of this world, and the desire for wealth, and the craving of other lusts enter in and choke the word, and it is without fruits
20 ܘܗܢܘܢ ܕܒܐܪܥܐ ܛܒܬܐ ܐܙܕܪܥܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܫܡܥܝܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܘܡܩܒܠܝܢ ܘܝܗܒܝܢ ܦܐܪܐ ܒܬܠܬܝܢ ܘܒܫܬܝܢ ܘܒܡܐܐ
. And those sown on good ground are they that hear the word, and receive it, and bear fruits, by thirty-, and by sixty-, and by hundredfold
21 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܠܡܐ ܐܬܐ ܫܪܓܐ ܕܬܚܝܬ ܤܐܬܐ ܢܬܬܤܝܡ ܐܘ ܬܚܝܬ ܥܪܤܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܥܠ ܡܢܪܬܐ ܢܬܬܤܝܡ
? And he said to them: Is a lamp put under a bushel, or under a bed ? Is it not placed on a light-stand
22 ܠܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܡܕܡ ܕܛܫܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܬܓܠܐ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܛܘܫܝܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܬܓܠܐ
. For there is nothing hid, which will not be revealed; and nothing concealed, which will not be brought into the open
23 ܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܐܕܢܐ ܕܢܫܡܥ ܢܫܡܥ
. If any one has ears to hear, let him listen
24 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܚܙܘ ܡܢܐ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܗܝ ܟܝܠܬܐ ܕܡܟܝܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܬܬܟܝܠ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܡܬܬܘܤܦ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܡܥܝܢ
And he said to them: Take heed what you hear: with what measure you measure, it shall be measured to you: and there shall more be given to you who hear
25 ܡܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܓܝܪ ܢܬܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܘܡܢ ܕܠܝܬ ܠܗ ܐܦ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܢܫܬܩܠ ܡܢܗ
For to him that has, will more be given; and from him that has not, even what he has will be taken from him.
26 ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܗܝ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܟ ܐܢܫ ܕܢܪܡܐ ܙܪܥܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ
, And he said: So is the Realm of God, as if a man should scatter seed onto the ground
27 ܘܢܕܡܟ ܘܢܩܘܡ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܘܒܐܝܡܡܐ ܘܙܪܥܐ ܢܪܒܐ ܘܢܐܪܟ ܟܕ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ
. and should sleep and get up, by night and by day, and the seed should grow and sprout, he knows not how
28 ܐܪܥܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܝܬܝܐ ܠܗ ܠܦܐܪܐ ܘܠܘܩܕܡ ܗܘܐ ܥܤܒܐ ܘܒܬܪܗ ܫܒܠܐ ܐܚܪܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܚܛܬܐ ܡܫܡܠܝܬܐ ܒܫܒܠܐ
. For the earth brings forth the crop; first the blade, and then the ear, and at last the ripe wheat in the ear
29 ܡܐ ܕܫܡܢ ܕܝܢ ܦܐܪܐ ܡܚܕܐ ܐܬܝܐ ܡܓܠܐ ܕܡܛܝ ܚܨܕܐ
. And when the crop is ripe, soon comes the sickle, because the harvest has arrived
30 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܡܢܐ ܢܕܡܝܗ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܐܝܢܐ ܡܬܠܐ ܢܡܬܠܝܗ
? And he said: To what shall we liken the Realm of God ? and with what parable shall we compare it
31 ܐܝܟ ܦܪܕܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܚܪܕܠܐ ܗܝ ܕܡܐ ܕܐܙܕܪܥܬ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܙܥܘܪܝܐ ܗܝ ܡܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܙܪܥܘܢܐ ܕܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ
; It is like a grain of mustard seed which, when it is sown in the earth, is the smallest of all seeds sown on the earth
32 ܘܡܐ ܕܐܙܕܪܥܬ ܤܠܩܐ ܘܗܘܝܐ ܪܒܐ ܡܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܝܪܩܘܢܐ ܘܥܒܕܐ ܤܘܟܐ ܪܘܪܒܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܬܫܟܚ ܕܒܛܠܠܗ ܦܪܚܬܐ ܬܫܟܢ
and when it is sown it springs up, and becomes greater than all herbs, and produces great branches, so that birds can lodge under its shadow
33 ܒܡܬܠܐ ܕܐܝܟ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܡܬܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܫܡܥ
. And by many such parables, parables such as they might understand, Jesus preached to the people
34 ܘܕܠܐ ܡܬܠܐ ܠܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܒܝܢܘܗܝ ܘܠܗܘܢ ܡܦܫܩ ܗܘܐ ܟܠܡܕܡ
. And outside of parables, he did not discuss it with them: but between himself and his disciples, he explained every thing
35 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܒܗܘ ܝܘܡܐ ܒܪܡܫܐ ܢܥܒܪ ܠܢ ܠܥܒܪܐ
 . And he said to them, that same day in the evening: Let us cross over to the other shore
36 ܘܫܒܩܘ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܘܕܒܪܘܗܝ ܟܕ ܒܤܦܝܢܬܐ ܗܘ ܘܤܦܝܢܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܝ ܥܡܗܘܢ
. And they sent away the crowds: and they took him away in the boat he was in. And with them there were also other boats
37 ܘܗܘܬ ܥܠܥܠܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܘܓܠܠܐ ܢܦܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܤܦܝܢܬܐ ܘܩܪܝܒܐ ܗܘܬ ܕܬܬܡܠܐ
. And there was a great storm and wind: and the waves beat upon the boat, and it was near being filled
38 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܠ ܒܤܕܝܐ ܕܡܟ ܗܘܐ ܒܚܪܬܗ ܕܤܦܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܐܩܝܡܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܪܒܢ ܠܐ ܒܛܝܠ ܠܟ ܕܐܒܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ
? And Jesus was asleep on a pillow in the stern of the boat. And they came and woke him, and said: Lord, do you not care that we are going to drown
39 ܘܩܡ ܘܟܐܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܝܡܐ ܫܠܝ ܙܓܝܪ ܐܢܬ ܘܫܠܝܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܘܗܘܐ ܢܘܚܐ ܪܒܐ
. And he got up, and reprimanded the wind, and said to the sea: Quiet!; be still. And the wind stopped, and everything grew calm
40 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܢܐ ܕܚܘܠܬܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܗܟܢ ܘܠܡܢܐ ܠܝܬ ܒܟܘܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ
? And he said to them: Why were you so terrified? and why have you not faith
41 ܘܕܚܠܘ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ ܡܢܘ ܟܝ ܗܢܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܘܝܡܐ ܡܫܬܡܥܝܢ ܠܗ
! And they were overcome with awe: and they said to one another: Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey him
