Chapter 15

 1 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܤܦܪܐ ܕܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ
 
: Then to Jesus came Pharisees and scribes of Jerusalem, and said
 2 ܠܡܢܐ ܬܠܡܝܕܝܟ ܥܒܪܝܢ ܥܠ ܡܫܠܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܫܝܓܝܢ ܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܡܐ ܕܐܟܠܝܢ ܠܚܡܐ
 
? Why do your disciples break away from the tradition of the elders, and do not wash their hands when they eat bread
 3 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܢܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܒܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܠ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܛܠ ܡܫܠܡܢܘܬܟܘܢ
 
? Jesus replied and said to them: Why do you also break away from the commandment of God, for the sake of your tradition
 4 ܐܠܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܝܩܪ ܠܐܒܘܟ ܘܠܐܡܟ ܘܡܢ ܕܡܨܚܐ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܘܠܐܡܗ ܡܡܬ ܢܡܘܬ
 
. For God has said: Do your duty to your father, and your mother; and Anyone who curses his father or his mother, will be put to death
 5 ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܢܐܡܪ ܠܐܒܐ ܐܘ ܠܐܡܐ ܩܘܪܒܢܝ ܡܕܡ ܕܬܬܗܢܐ ܡܢܝ ܘܠܐ ܢܝܩܪ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܐܘ ܠܐܡܗ
 
But you say : If anyone says to his father or to his mother, Anything I have that I might have used to help you is dedicated to God: then he is rid of his duty to father or mother
 6 ܘܒܛܠܬܘܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܛܠ ܡܫܠܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ
 
. And so you make the word of God empty, by means of your tradition
 7 ܢܤܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܫܦܝܪ ܐܬܢܒܝ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܐܫܥܝܐ ܘܐܡܪ
 
: You hypocrites, it was you Isaiah meant when so well he prophesied
 8 ܥܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܤܦܘܬܗ ܗܘ ܡܝܩܪ ܠܝ ܠܒܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܤܓܝ ܪܚܝܩ ܡܢܝ
 
. This people honors me with only with the lips, yet their hearts are far from me
 9 ܘܤܪܝܩܐܝܬ ܕܚܠܝܢ ܠܝ ܟܕ ܡܠܦܝܢ ܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܕܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܕܒܢܝܢܫܐ
 
. The worship they offer me is worthless, while they teach doctrines that are only human regulations
10 ܘܩܪܐ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܡܥܘ ܘܐܤܬܟܠܘ
. And he called the crowd to him and said, Listen and understand
11 ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܥܐܠ ܠܦܘܡܐ ܡܤܝܒ ܠܒܪܢܫܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܢܦܩ ܡܢ ܦܘܡܐ ܗܘ ܗܘ ܡܤܝܒ ܠܒܪܢܫܐ
. What goes into the mouth does not make a man unclean; it is what comes out of the mouth, that makes a man unclean
12 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܬ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܐܬܟܫܠܘ
? Then his disciples came and said to him: Do you know that the Pharisees were shocked when they heard what you said
13 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܠ ܢܨܒܬܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܨܒܗ ܐܒܝ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܬܬܥܩܪ
. And he replied to them: Any plant my Father who is in Heaven has not planted will be pulled out by the roots
14 ܫܒܘܩܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܤܡܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܢܓܘܕܐ ܕܤܡܝܐ ܤܡܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܤܡܝܐ ܐܢ ܢܕܒܪ ܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܒܓܘܡܨܐ ܢܦܠܝܢ
Leave them alone: they are blind men leading the blind. And if a blind man leads another, they both will fall into a pit
15 ܘܥܢܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܝ ܦܫܩ ܠܢ ܡܬܠܐ ܗܢܐ
. And Simon Kephas answered and said to him: Lord, explain to us this parable
16 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܫܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܤܬܟܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
? And he said to them: Do even you not yet understand
17 ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܥܐܠ ܠܦܘܡܐ ܠܟܪܤܐ ܗܘ ܐܙܠ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܒܬܕܟܝܬܐ ܡܫܬܕܐ ܠܒܪ
? Do you not know, that whatever goes in the mouth, passes to the stomach, and from there is passed by digestion
18 ܡܕܡ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܦܘܡܐ ܢܦܩ ܡܢ ܠܒܐ ܢܦܩ ܘܗܘܝܘ ܡܤܝܒ ܠܗ ܠܒܪܢܫܐ
. But that which comes out of the mouth, comes from the heart: and that is what makes a man unclean
19 ܡܢ ܠܒܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܢܦܩܢ ܡܚܫܒܬܐ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܓܘܪܐ ܩܛܠܐ ܙܢܝܘܬܐ ܓܢܒܘܬܐ ܤܗܕܘܬ ܫܘܩܪܐ ܓܘܕܦܐ
. For, from the heart comes evil intentions, adultery, murder, fornication, theft, perjury, slander
20 ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܝܢ ܕܡܤܝܒܢ ܠܒܪܢܫܐ ܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܕܝܢ ܢܠܥܤ ܟܕ ܠܐ ܡܫܓܢ ܐܝܕܘܗܝ ܠܐ ܡܤܬܝܒ
. These are the things that make a man unclean. But if a man eats while his hands are unwashed, he is not unclean
21 ܘܢܦܩ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܬܚܘܡܐ ܕܨܘܪ ܘܕܨܝܕܢ
. And Jesus left from there, and went to the region of Tyre and Sidon
22 ܘܗܐ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܟܢܥܢܝܬܐ ܡܢ ܬܚܘܡܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܢܦܩܬ ܟܕ ܩܥܝܐ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝ ܡܪܝ ܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܒܪܬܝ ܒܝܫܐܝܬ ܡܬܕܒܪܐ ܡܢ ܫܐܕܐ
Then out came a Canaanite woman from that district, shouting out and saying: Take pity on me, my Lord, son of David: my daughter is tormented by a demon
23 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܦܢܝܗ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܘܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܒܥܘ ܡܢܗ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܫܪܝܗ ܕܩܥܝܐ ܒܬܪܢ
. But he answered her not a word. And his disciples went and pleaded with him, and said: Send her away, for she shouts at us
24 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܐܫܬܕܪܬ ܐܠܐ ܠܘܬ ܥܪܒܐ ܕܛܥܘ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ
. But he answered and said to them: I was sent only to the sheep that have strayed from the house of Israel
25 ܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܬ ܤܓܕܬ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪܬ ܡܪܝ ܥܕܪܝܢܝ
. And she came, and knelt before him, and said: Lord, help me
26 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܫܦܝܪ ܠܡܤܒ ܠܚܡܐ ܕܒܢܝܐ ܘܠܡܪܡܝܘ ܠܟܠܒܐ
. Jesus said to her: It is not fair to take the bread of children and throw it to dogs
27 ܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܬ ܐܝܢ ܡܪܝ ܐܦ ܟܠܒܐ ܐܟܠܝܢ ܡܢ ܦܪܬܘܬܐ ܕܢܦܠܝܢ ܡܢ ܦܬܘܪܐ ܕܡܪܝܗܘܢ ܘܚܐܝܢ
. And she said: Even so, my Lord; yet the dogs eat of the scraps that fall from the tables of their masters, and live
28 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܘ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܪܒܐ ܗܝ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܟܝ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܟܝ ܐܝܟ ܕܨܒܝܐ ܐܢܬܝ ܘܐܬܐܤܝܬ ܒܪܬܗ ܡܢ ܗܝ ܫܥܬܐ
. Then Jesus said to her: Woman, your faith is great: let your wish be granted. And her daughter was cured at that moment
29 ܘܫܢܝ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܬܐ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܝܡܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܤܠܩ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܘܝܬܒ ܬܡܢ
. And Jesus left from there, and came to the shores of the sea of Galilee: and he went up a hill, and sat there
30 ܘܩܪܒܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܚܓܝܪܐ ܘܤܡܝܐ ܘܚܪܫܐ ܘܦܫܝܓܐ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܐܪܡܝܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܤܝ ܐܢܘܢ
And large crowds came to him; and with them were the lame, and the blind, and the dumb, and the crippled, and many others: and they put them at the feet of Jesus, and he healed them
31 ܐܝܟ ܕܢܬܕܡܪܘܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܚܪܫܐ ܕܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܘܦܫܝܓܐ ܕܡܬܚܠܡܝܢ ܘܚܓܝܪܐ ܕܡܗܠܟܝܢ ܘܤܡܝܐ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܘܫܒܚܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܤܪܝܠ
So that the crowds were astonished, when they saw the dumb speaking, and the crippled made whole, and the lame walking, and the blind seeing: and they praised the God of Israel
32 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܪܐ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܬܪܚܡ ܐܢܐ ܥܠ ܟܢܫܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܗܐ ܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܩܘܝܘ ܠܘܬܝ ܘܠܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܐ ܕܢܐܟܠܘܢ ܘܕܐܫܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܨܝܡܝܢ ܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܥܘܦܘܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ
Then Jesus called his disciples, and said to them: I pity this crowd; for these past three days they have been with me, and they have nothing to eat: and I am unwilling to send them away hungry, lest they collapse along the way
33 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܠܢ ܒܚܘܪܒܐ ܠܚܡܐ ܕܢܤܒܥ ܟܢܫܐ ܗܢܐ ܟܠܗ
? His disciples say to him: Where can we get enough bread in the desert to satisfy such a crowd
34 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܟܡܐ ܠܚܡܝܢ ܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܫܒܥܐ ܘܩܠܝܠ ܢܘܢܐ ܕܩܕܩܐ
. Jesus said to them, How many loaves have you ? They said to him, Seven, and a few small fish
35 ܘܦܩܕ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܕܢܤܬܡܟܘܢ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ
. And he instructed the crowds to sit down on the ground
36 ܘܫܩܠ ܠܗܠܝܢ ܫܒܥܐ ܠܚܡܝܢ ܘܠܢܘܢܐ ܘܫܒܚ ܘܩܨܐ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܝܗܒܘ ܠܟܢܫܐ
And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and giving thanks, and broke them, and handed them to his disciples; and the disciples handed them out to the crowds
37 ܘܐܟܠܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܤܒܥܘ ܘܫܩܠܘ ܬܘܬܪܐ ܕܩܨܝܐ ܡܠܐ ܫܒܥܐ ܐܤܦܪܝܕܝܢ
. And they all ate as much as they wanted. And the scraps of leftovers they collected up filled seven baskets
38 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܟܠܘ ܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܪܒܥܐ ܐܠܦܝܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܤܛܪ ܡܢ ܢܫܐ ܘܛܠܝܐ
. And four thousand men had eaten, along with women and children
39 ܘܟܕ ܫܪܐ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܤܠܩ ܠܐܠܦܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܬܚܘܡܐ ܕܡܓܕܘ
. And when he had sent the crowds away, he got into a boat, and went to the shores of Magdala
 

Chapter 16

 1 ܘܩܪܒܘ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܙܕܘܩܝܐ ܡܢܤܝܢ ܠܗ ܘܫܐܠܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܬܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܕܢܚܘܐ ܐܢܘܢ
 
. And Pharisees and Sadducees came, and to test him they asked him to show them a sign from heaven
 2 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܪܡܫܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܨܚܘܐ ܗܘ ܤܡܩܬ ܓܝܪ ܫܡܝܐ
 
. But he answered, and said to them: In the evening you say, It will be good weather; for the skies are red
 3 ܘܒܨܦܪܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܤܬܘܐ ܗܘ ܤܡܩܬ ܓܝܪ ܫܡܝܐ ܟܡܝܪܐܝܬ ܢܤܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܦܪܨܘܦܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܬܒܩܘܢ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܕܙܒܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܬܦܪܫܘܢ
 
And in the morning you say, There will be a storm today; for the skies are overcast and red. You hypocrites, you are smart enough to read the appearance of the sky, but the signs of this time you lack skill to read
 4 ܫܪܒܬܐ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܘܓܝܪܬܐ ܐܬܐ ܒܥܝܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܐ ܡܬܝܗܒܐ ܠܗ ܐܠܐ ܐܬܗ ܕܝܘܢܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܘܫܒܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܐܙܠ
 
A evil and unfaithful generation asks for a sign; but no sign will be given it, only the sign of the prophet Jonah. And he leaving them, and went away
 5 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܠܥܒܪܐ ܛܥܘ ܕܢܤܒܘܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܚܡܐ
 
. And his disciples, having crossed to the far shore, had forgotten to take bread with them
 6 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܚܙܘ ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܡܢ ܚܡܝܪܐ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܕܙܕܘܩܝܐ
 
. And he said to them: Take heed, and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees
 7 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܬܪܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܠܚܡܐ ܠܐ ܢܤܒܘ
 
. And they said among themselves, Is it because we have not brought any bread
 8 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܡܬܚܫܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܙܥܘܪܝ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܠܚܡܐ ܠܐ ܫܩܠܬܘܢ
 
? Jesus knew it and said to them : You of little faith! why are you talking among yourselves about having taken no bread
 9 ܠܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܫܐ ܐܤܬܟܠܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܥܗܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܚܡܫܐ ܠܚܡܝܢ ܕܚܡܫܐ ܐܠܦܝܢ ܘܟܡܐ ܩܘܦܝܢܝܢ ܫܩܠܬܘܢ
 
? Have you not yet understood ? Do you not remember the five loaves and the five thousand, and the many baskets you took up
10 ܘܠܐ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܫܒܥܐ ܠܚܡܝܢ ܕܐܪܒܥܐ ܐܠܦܝܢ ܘܟܡܐ ܐܤܦܪܝܕܝܢ ܫܩܠܬܘܢ
? Nor the seven loaves and the four thousand, and the many baskets you took up
11 ܐܝܟܢ ܠܐ ܐܤܬܟܠܬܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܠܚܡܐ ܐܡܪܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܕܬܙܕܗܪܘܢ ܡܢ ܚܡܝܪܐ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܕܙܕܘܩܝܐ
How is it that you do not understand that it was not about bread that I spoke to you of; but that you should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees
12 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܤܬܟܠܘ ܕܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܕܢܙܕܗܪܘܢ ܡܢ ܚܡܝܪܐ ܕܠܚܡܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܕܙܕܘܩܝܐ
. Then they understood that he did not tell them beware of the yeast of bread, but of the teachings of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees
13 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܕܩܤܪܝܐ ܕܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܡܫܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢܘ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܥܠܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܕܐܝܬܝ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
? And when Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, he questioned his disciples, and said: Who do men say the Son of Man is
14 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܐܝܬ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܡܥܡܕܢܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܠܝܐ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܪܡܝܐ ܐܘ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܢܒܝܐ
. And they said: Some say he is John the Baptist; some, Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets
15 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܘ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܝܬܝ
? But you, he said, who do you yourselves say that I am
16 ܥܢܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܚܝܐ
. Simon Kephas answered and said: You are the Messiah, the Son of the Living God
17 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܛܘܒܝܟ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܪܗ ܕܝܘܢܐ ܕܒܤܪܐ ܘܕܡܐ ܠܐ ܓܠܐ ܠܟ ܐܠܐ ܐܒܝ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
. Jesus answered, and said to him: Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonas; for flesh and blood did not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in Heaven
18 ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܕܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܥܠ ܗܕܐ ܟܐܦܐ ܐܒܢܝܗ ܠܥܕܬܝ ܘܬܪܥܐ ܕܫܝܘܠ ܠܐ ܢܚܤܢܘܢܗ
. From now on I say to you, that you are Kephas: and on this rock, I will build my church: and the gates of death will not win over it
19 ܠܟ ܐܬܠ ܩܠܝܕܐ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܘܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܬܐܤܘܪ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܐܤܝܪ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܡܕܡ ܕܬܫܪܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܫܪܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ
To you will I give the keys of the Realm of Heaven: and whatever you will bind on earth, will be bound in Heaven: and whatever you will unbind on earth, will be unbound in Heaven
20 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܦܩܕ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܠܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܕܗܘܝܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ
. Then he gave orders to his disciples, that they should tell no man that he was the Messiah
21 ܘܡܢ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܪܝ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܡܚܘܝܘ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܥܬܝܕ ܗܘ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܤܓܝ ܢܚܫ ܡܢ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܡܢ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܤܦܪܐ ܘܢܬܩܛܠ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܬܠܬܐ ܢܩܘܡ
And from that time Jesus began to make it clear to his disciples, that he was to go up to Jerusalem, and to suffer much from the elders, and from the high priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised up
22 ܘܕܒܪܗ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܫܪܝ ܠܡܟܐܐ ܒܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܚܤ ܠܟ ܡܪܝ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܗܕܐ
. And Kephas took him aside, and began to reprimand him; and he said: Be it far from you, my Lord, that this may happen
23 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܦܢܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܟܐܦܐ ܙܠ ܠܟ ܠܒܤܬܪܝ ܤܛܢܐ ܬܘܩܠܬܐ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܪܥܐ ܐܢܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ
. But he turned, and said to Kephas: Get behind me, Satan: You are a obstacle to me; for the way you think is not God's way, but man's
24 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ ܢܟܦܘܪ ܒܢܦܫܗ ܘܢܫܩܘܠ ܙܩܝܦܗ ܘܢܐܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ
. Then said Jesus to his disciples: If any one wants to follow me, let him renounce himself; and let him take up his cross, and follow me
25 ܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܚܐ ܢܦܫܗ ܢܘܒܕܝܗ ܘܡܢ ܕܢܘܒܕ ܢܦܫܗ ܡܛܠܬܝ ܢܫܟܚܝܗ
. For anyone who wants to save his life, will lose it; but anyone who will lose his life for my sake will find it
26 ܡܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܬܗܢܐ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܐܢ ܟܠܗ ܥܠܡܐ ܢܩܢܐ ܘܢܦܫܗ ܢܚܤܪ ܐܘ ܡܢܐ ܢܬܠ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܬܚܠܘܦܐ ܕܢܦܫܗ
? For what will it gain a man, if he wins the whole world and his soul gets lost? What has a man to offer in exchange for his soul
27 ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܒܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܕܐܒܘܗܝ ܥܡ ܡܠܐܟܘܗܝ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܦܪܘܥ ܠܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܐܝܟ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ
. For the Son of Man is to come in the glory of his Father, with his holy angels; and then will he reward each man according to his works
28 ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܐܢܫܐ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܬܢܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܛܥܡܘܢ ܡܘܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܚܙܘܢ ܠܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܗ
Truly I say to you: There are some of these standing here, who will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his Realm
 

Chapter 17

 1 ܘܒܬܪ ܫܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܕܒܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܟܐܦܐ ܘܠܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܘܐܤܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܪܡܐ ܒܠܚܘܕܝܗܘܢ
 
. And six days later, Jesus took Kephas, and James, and John his brother, and took them alone up a high mountain
 2 ܘܐܫܬܚܠܦ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܕܡܝܗܘܢ ܘܢܗܪ ܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܐܝܟ ܫܡܫܐ ܢܚܬܘܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܚܘܪܘ ܐܝܟ ܢܘܗܪܐ
 
. And Jesus was transfigured in their presence: his face was as bright as  the sun; and his clothes became as white as light
 3 ܘܐܬܚܙܝܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܘܫܐ ܘܐܠܝܐ ܟܕ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܥܡܗ
 
. And there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, who were talking with him
 4 ܥܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܡܪܝ ܫܦܝܪ ܗܘ ܠܢ ܕܬܢܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܘܐܢ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܢܥܒܕ ܬܢܢ ܬܠܬ ܡܛܠܝܢ ܚܕܐ ܠܟ ܘܚܕܐ ܠܡܘܫܐ ܘܚܕܐ ܠܐܠܝܐ
 
Then Kephas spoke to Jesus: Lord, it is wonderful for us to be here: and, if you wish, let us make three booths here; one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah
 5 ܘܥܕ ܗܘ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܐ ܥܢܢܐ ܢܗܝܪܬܐ ܐܛܠܬ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܩܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܥܢܢܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܢܘ ܒܪܝ ܚܒܝܒܐ ܕܒܗ ܐܨܛܒܝܬ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘ
 
And while he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud covered them with shadow: and from the cloud there came a voice which said: This is my beloved Son, in whom I am pleased; Listen to him
 6 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܢܦܠܘ ܥܠ ܐܦܝܗܘܢ ܘܕܚܠܘ ܛܒ
 
. And when the disciples heard it, they fell facedown, and were very afraid
 7 ܘܐܬܩܪܒ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܩܪܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܩܘܡܘ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠܘܢ
 
. And Jesus came to them and touched them, and said: Get up, and do not be afraid
 8 ܘܐܪܝܡܘ ܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܠܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܚܙܘ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܒܠܚܘܕܘܗܝ
 
. And they lifted up their eyes, and they saw no one, except Jesus alone
 9 ܘܟܕ ܢܚܬܝܢ ܡܢ ܛܘܪܐ ܦܩܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܥܝܢ ܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܚܙܘܐ ܗܢܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܩܘܡ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܡܝܬܐ
 
And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus ordered them, and said to them: Do not speak of this vision to anyone, until the Son of man arises from the dead
10 ܘܫܐܠܘܗܝ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܤܦܪܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܐܠܝܐ ܘܠܐ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܠܘܩܕܡ
? And his disciples asked him, and said to him: Why then do the scribes say, that Elijah must come first
11 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܠܝܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܕܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܢܫܠܡ
. Jesus answered, and said to them: Elijah will come first so that all things might be fulfilled
12 ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܗܐ ܐܠܝܐ ܐܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܝܕܥܘܗܝ ܘܥܒܕܘ ܒܗ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܨܒܘ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܕܢܚܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ
I say to you. That, behold, Elijah has come, and they did not know him; and they did to him as they wished: and likewise, as well, the Son of man must suffer from them
13 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܤܬܟܠܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܥܠ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܡܥܡܕܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
. Then the disciples understood that he had been speaking to them about John the Baptist
14 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܠܘܬ ܟܢܫܐ ܩܪܒ ܠܗ ܓܒܪܐ ܘܒܪܟ ܥܠ ܒܘܪܟܘܗܝ
, And when they came toward the crowd, a man approached him, and bowed down on his knees to him
15 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܝ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝ ܒܪܝ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܒܪ ܐܓܪܐ ܘܒܝܫܐܝܬ ܥܒܝܕ ܟܡܐ ܓܝܪ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܒܢܘܪܐ ܢܦܠ ܘܟܡܐ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܒܡܝܐ
and said to him: Lord, have mercy on me. I have a son who is a lunatic, and badly afflicted; for often he falls into the fire or into the water
16 ܘܩܪܒܬܗ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܝܟ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܠܡܐܤܝܘܬܗ
. And I brought him to your disciples, and they were not able to heal him
17 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܘܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܘܡܥܩܠܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܐܡܬܝ ܐܗܘܐ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܐܡܬܝ ܐܤܝܒܪܟܘܢ ܐܝܬܝܗܝ ܠܝ ܠܟܐ
Jesus answered and said: O faithless and perverse generation ! How much longer must I be with you ? and how much longer put up with you ? Bring him here to me
18 ܘܟܐܐ ܒܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܢܦܩ ܡܢܗ ܫܐܕܐ ܘܐܬܐܤܝ ܛܠܝܐ ܡܢ ܗܝ ܫܥܬܐ
. And when Jesus rebuked the demon, and it left him: and at that moment the child was healed
19 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܠܚܘܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܠܡܢܐ ܚܢܢ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܢ ܠܡܐܤܝܘܬܗ
? Then came the disciples to Jesus, privately, and said to him: Why were we unable to heal him
20 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܛܠ ܠܐ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܟܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܢ ܬܗܘܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܦܪܕܬܐ ܕܚܪܕܠܐ ܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܫܢܐ ܡܟܐ ܘܢܫܢܐ ܘܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܢܚܤܢܟܘܢ
Jesus said to them: Because of your lack of faith. For truly I say to you, That if your faith were the size of a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, Move from here to there, and it would move: and nothing would be impossible for you
21 ܗܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܓܢܤܐ ܠܐ ܢܦܩ ܐܠܐ ܒܨܘܡܐ ܘܒܨܠܘܬܐ
. As for this kind, it does not goes out, except by fasting and prayer
22 ܟܕ ܡܬܗܦܟܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܓܠܝܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܕܢܫܬܠܡ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ
; And while they were traveling in Galilee, Jesus said to them: The Son of man will be betrayed into the hands of men
23 ܘܢܩܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܬܠܬܐ ܢܩܘܡ ܘܟܪܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܛܒ
. and they will kill him; and on the third day he will arise. And they were very saddened
24 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܠܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ ܩܪܒܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܢܤܒܝܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܙܘܙܝܢ ܕܟܤܦ ܪܫܐ ܠܘܬ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܪܒܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܝܗܒ ܬܪܝܢ ܙܘܙܘܗܝ
? And when they reached Capernaum, the collectors of the *half-coin head tax came to Kephas, and said to him: Does not your teacher pay his *half-coin [*dual-each]
25 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܢ ܘܟܕ ܥܠ ܟܐܦܐ ܠܒܝܬܐ ܩܕܡܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܢܐ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܠܟ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܡܠܟܝܗ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܡܢ ܡܢ ܢܤܒܝܢ ܡܟܤܐ ܘܟܤܦ ܪܫܐ ܡܢ ܒܢܝܗܘܢ ܐܘ ܡܢ ܢܘܟܪܝܐ
He said to them, Yes. And when Kephas had entered the house, Jesus anticipated him and said to him: What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth receive toll and tribute ? from their sons, or from foreigners
26
ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܡܢ ܢܘܟܪܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܕܝܢ ܒܢܝ ܚܐܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܢܝܐ
. Simon said to him: From foreigners. Jesus said to him: Then the sons are exempt
27 ܕܠܐ ܕܝܢ ܢܟܫܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܙܠ ܠܝܡܐ ܘܐܪܡܐ ܒܠܘܥܐ ܘܢܘܢܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܕܤܠܩ ܦܬܚ ܦܘܡܗ ܘܬܫܟܚ ܐܤܬܪܐ ܗܝ ܤܒ ܘܗܒ ܚܠܦܝ ܘܚܠܦܝܟ
However, so as not to offend these people, go to the sea and cast in a fishhook, and the first fish that bites, open it's mouth, and you will find a coin: take it and give it to them for me and for you
 

Chapter 18

 1 ܒܗܝ ܫܥܬܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܡܢܘ ܟܝ ܪܒ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
 
? At this time the disciples came to Jesus, and said: Who is the greatest in the Realm of Heaven
 2 ܘܩܪܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܛܠܝܐ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ
 
, And Jesus called a little child to him, and set the child in front of them
 3 ܘܐܡܪ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܠܐ ܬܬܗܦܟܘܢ ܘܬܗܘܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܛܠܝܐ ܠܐ ܬܥܠܘܢ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
 
. and said: Truly I say to you, that unless you change, and become like little children, you will never enter the Realm of Heaven
 4 ܡܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܡܡܟܟ ܢܦܫܗ ܐܝܟ ܗܢܐ ܛܠܝܐ ܗܘ ܢܗܘܐ ܪܒ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
 
. He then, that will make himself little as this child, is the greatest in the Realm of Heaven
 5 ܘܡܢ ܕܢܩܒܠ ܐܝܟ ܛܠܝܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܫܡܝ ܠܝ ܡܩܒܠ
 
. Anyone that will welcome a little child like this, in my name, welcomes me
 6 ܘܟܠ ܕܢܟܫܠ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܕܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܒܝ ܦܩܚ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܬܠܝܐ ܪܚܝܐ ܕܚܡܪܐ ܒܨܘܪܗ ܘܡܛܒܥ ܒܥܘܡܩܘܗܝ ܕܝܡܐ
And anyone who is an obstacle to bring down one of these little ones that has faith in me, it would be better for him that a millstone were hung to his neck, and drown in the depths of the sea
 7 ܘܝ ܠܥܠܡܐ ܡܢ ܡܟܫܘܠܐ ܐܢܢܩܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܐܬܘܢ ܡܟܫܘܠܐ ܘܝ ܕܝܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܕܒܐܝܕܗ ܢܐܬܘܢ ܡܟܫܘܠܐ
 
. Woe to the world that here should be such obstacles ! For obstacles will come. But, woe to the person who provides them
 8 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܕܟ ܐܘ ܪܓܠܟ ܡܟܫܠܐ ܠܟ ܦܤܘܩܝܗ ܘܫܕܝܗ ܡܢܟ ܛܒ ܗܘ ܠܟ ܕܬܥܘܠ ܠܚܝܐ ܟܕ ܚܓܝܤ ܐܢܬ ܐܘ ܟܕ ܦܫܝܓ ܘܠܐ ܟܕ ܐܝܬ ܠܟ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܐܝܕܝܢ ܐܘ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܪܓܠܝܢ ܬܦܠ ܒܢܘܪܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
 
If then your hand or your foot makes you trip over, cut it off and throw it away: for it is better for you to enter into life lame or crippled, than to have two hands or two feet, and fall into eternal fire
 9 ܘܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܥܝܢܟ ܡܟܫܠܐ ܠܟ ܚܨܝܗ ܘܫܕܝܗ ܡܢܟ ܛܒ ܗܘ ܠܟ ܕܒܚܕܐ ܥܝܢܐ ܬܥܘܠ ܠܚܝܐ ܘܠܐ ܟܕ ܐܝܬ ܠܟ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܥܝܢܝܢ ܬܦܠ ܒܓܗܢܐ ܕܢܘܪܐ
 
And if your eye makes you trip over, pluck it out and throw it away: for it is better for you to enter into life with one eye, than to have two eyes, and fall into the hell of fire
10 ܚܙܘ ܠܐ ܬܒܤܘܢ ܥܠ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܠܐܟܝܗܘܢ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܚܙܝܢ ܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܕܐܒܝ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
. See that you do not mistreat even one of these little ones; for I say to you that their Angels in Heaven are continually in the presence of my Father in Heaven
11 ܐܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܕܢܚܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܒܝܕ ܗܘܐ
. For the Son of Man, has come to give life to that which was lost
12 ܡܢܐ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܢ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܠܐܢܫ ܡܐܐ ܥܪܒܝܢ ܘܢܛܥܐ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܬܫܥܝܢ ܘܬܫܥܐ ܒܛܘܪܐ ܘܐܙܠ ܒܥܐ ܠܗܘ ܕܛܥܐ
? How do you view it ? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them strays, will he not leave the ninety and nine in the hills, and go in search of the one that strayed
13 ܘܐܢ ܢܫܟܚܗ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܚܕܐ ܒܗ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܬܫܥܝܢ ܘܬܫܥܐ ܕܠܐ ܛܥܘ
. And if he finds it, truly I say to you, that it gives him more joy than do the ninety and nine that did not stray
14 ܗܟܢܐ ܠܝܬ ܨܒܝܢܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܕܢܐܒܕ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܗܠܝܢ
. Similarly, it is never the will of your Father in Heaven that one of these little ones should be lost
15 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܤܟܠ ܒܟ ܐܚܘܟ ܙܠ ܐܟܤܝܗܝ ܒܝܢܝܟ ܘܠܗ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܐܢ ܫܡܥܟ ܝܬܪܬ ܐܚܘܟ
. Moreover, if your brother offends you, go have it out with him alone. If he listens to you, you have won back your brother
16 ܘܐܠܐ ܫܡܥܟ ܕܒܪ ܥܡܟ ܚܕ ܐܘ ܬܪܝܢ ܕܥܠ ܦܘܡ ܬܪܝܢ ܐܘ ܬܠܬܐ ܤܗܕܝܢ ܬܩܘܡ ܟܠ ܡܠܐ
But if he does not listen to you, take with you one or two, that the evidence of two or three witnesses is required to sustain any charge.
17 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܢܫܡܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܥܕܬܐ ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܠܥܕܬܐ ܢܫܡܥ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܐܝܟ ܡܟܤܐ ܘܐܝܟ ܚܢܦܐ
. And if he refuses to listen to them, report it to the community. And if he refuses to listen to the community, treat him like a tax collector and a pagan
18 ܘܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܬܐܤܪܘܢ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܐܤܝܪ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܡܕܡ ܕܬܫܪܘܢ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܫܪܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ
. Truly I say to you, That whatever you bind on earth, will be bound in Heaven: and whatever you let loose on earth, will be let loose in Heaven
19 ܬܘܒ ܐܡܪܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܢܫܬܘܘܢ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܥܠ ܟܠ ܨܒܘ ܕܢܫܐܠܘܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܒܝ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
. Again I say to you, That if two of you agree to ask on earth about anything at all, it will be granted to you by my Father in Heaven
20 ܐܝܟܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܬܪܝܢ ܐܘ ܬܠܬܐ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܒܫܡܝ ܬܡܢ ܐܢܐ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ
. For where two or three meet in my name, I shall be there with them
21 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܒ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܟܡܐ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܐܢ ܢܤܟܠ ܒܝ ܐܚܝ ܐܫܒܘܩ ܠܗ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܒܥ ܙܒܢܝܢ
? Then Kephas went up to him, and said: Lord, how often, if my brother wrongs me, shall I forgive him ? As often as seven times
22 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܒܥ ܐܠܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܒܥܝܢ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܫܒܥ ܫܒܥ
. Jesus answered: Not seven times, I say to you, but seventy times seven
23 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܕܡܝܬ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܨܒܐ ܕܢܤܒ ܚܘܫܒܢܐ ܡܢ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ
. And so the Realm of Heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle his accounts with his servants
24 ܘܟܕ ܫܪܝ ܠܡܤܒ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܚܕ ܕܚܝܒ ܪܒܘ ܟܟܪܝܢ
. And when he began to reckon, they brought to him a man who owed ten thousand talents
25 ܘܟܕ ܠܝܬ ܠܗ ܠܡܦܪܥ ܦܩܕ ܡܪܗ ܕܢܙܕܒܢ ܗܘ ܘܐܢܬܬܗ ܘܒܢܘܗܝ ܘܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܘܢܦܪܘܥ
And as he had no means to pay, so his master gave orders for him to be sold, along with his wife and his children, and all that he owned, to meet the debt
26 ܘܢܦܠ ܗܘ ܥܒܕܐ ܤܓܕ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܐܓܪ ܥܠܝ ܪܘܚܐ ܘܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܦܪܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ
. At this, servant fell down at his feet, and said: Master, give me time, and I will pay you back the whole sum
27 ܘܐܬܪܚܡ ܡܪܗ ܕܥܒܕܐ ܗܘ ܘܫܪܝܗܝ ܘܚܘܒܬܗ ܫܒܩ ܠܗ
. And his master felt sorry for servant, and let him go, and cancelled his debt
28 ܢܦܩ ܕܝܢ ܥܒܕܐ ܗܘ ܘܐܫܟܚ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܟܢܘܬܗ ܕܚܝܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܕܝܢܪܐ ܡܐܐ ܘܐܚܕܗ ܘܚܢܩ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܒ ܠܝ ܡܕܡ ܕܚܝܒ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ
Now as that servant went out, he happened to meet one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii. And he grabbed him and throttled him, and said to him: Pay me what you owe me
29 ܘܢܦܠ ܗܘ ܟܢܬܗ ܥܠ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܒܥܐ ܡܢܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܓܪ ܥܠܝ ܪܘܚܐ ܘܦܪܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ
. And that fellow servant fell at his feet and pleaded him, and said: Give me time, and I will pay you back the whole sum
30 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܙܠ ܐܪܡܝܗ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܬܠ ܠܗ ܡܐ ܕܚܝܒ ܠܗ
. But he would not agree, but had him thrown into prison, till he should pay the debt
31 ܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܕܝܢ ܟܢܘܬܗܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܗܘܐ ܟܪܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܛܒ ܘܐܬܘ ܐܘܕܥܘ ܠܡܪܗܘܢ ܟܠ ܕܗܘܐ
. And when their fellow servants saw what had happened, it disturbed them alot; and they went and reported it to their master all that had transpired
32 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܝܗܝ ܡܪܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܥܒܕܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܗܝ ܟܠܗ ܚܘܒܬܐ ܫܒܩܬ ܠܟ ܕܒܥܝܬ ܡܢܝ
: Then his master sent for him, and said: You wicked servant !  I cancelled all your debt, when you appealed to me
33 ܠܐ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܐܦ ܐܢܬ ܕܬܚܘܢ ܠܟܢܬܟ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܚܢܬܟ
? Should you not as well have felt compassion for your fellow servant, as I had felt compassion for you
34 ܘܪܓܙ ܡܪܗ ܘܐܫܠܡܗ ܠܡܢܓܕܢܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܦܪܘܥ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܚܝܒ ܠܗ
. And so, in his anger the master handed him over to the torturers, till he should pay all his debt
35 ܗܟܢܐ ܢܥܒܕ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܒܝ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܐܠܐ ܬܫܒܩܘܢ ܐܢܫ ܠܐܚܘܗܝ ܡܢ ܠܒܟܘܢ ܤܟܠܘܬܗ
. So will my Father in Heaven deal with you, unless each of you forgives from your heart his brother of his wrongs
 

Chapter 19

 1 ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܫܠܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܫܩܠ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܬܚܘܡܐ ܕܝܗܘܕ ܠܥܒܪܐ ܕܝܘܪܕܢܢ
 
. And when Jesus had finished these sermons, he left Galilee, and came into the part of Judaea on the far side of the Jordan
 2 ܘܐܬܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܐܤܝ ܐܢܘܢ ܬܡܢ
 
. And large crowds followed him, and he healed them there
 3 ܘܩܪܒܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܡܢܤܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢ ܫܠܝܛ ܠܐܢܫ ܕܢܫܪܐ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܒܟܠ ܥܠܐ
 
? Some Pharisees approached him, and to test him they said: Is it unlawful for a man to divorce his wife for any pretext
 4 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܩܪܝܬܘܢ ܕܗܘ ܕܥܒܕ ܡܢ ܒܪܫܝܬ ܕܟܪܐ ܘܢܩܒܬܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܘܢ
 
? And he answered them: Have you not read that the creator from the beginning, made them male and female
 5 ܘܐܡܪ ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܢܫܒܘܩ ܓܒܪܐ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܘܠܐܡܗ ܘܢܩܦ ܠܐܢܬܬܗ ܘܢܗܘܘܢ ܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܚܕ ܒܤܪ
 
. And that he said: This is why a man must leave father and mother, and cling to his wife; and the two become one body
 6 ܡܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܘ ܬܪܝܢ ܐܠܐ ܚܕ ܦܓܪ ܡܕܡ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܙܘܓ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܠܐ ܢܦܪܫ
 
. They are no longer two, therefore, but one body. So then, what God has joined, man must not divide
 7 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܘܫܐ ܦܩܕ ܕܢܬܠ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܫܘܒܩܢܐ ܘܢܫܪܝܗ
 
? They say to him: Why then did Moses command a decree of divorce should be given in cases of divorce
 8 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܘܫܐ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܩܫܝܘܬ ܠܒܟܘܢ ܐܦܤ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܬܫܪܘܢ ܢܫܝܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܒܪܫܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܟܢܐ
 
. He said to them: Moses allowed you, because you were so unteachable, to divorce your wives: but it was not so from the beginning
 9 ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܕܫܒܩ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܕܠܐ ܓܘܪܐ ܘܢܤܒ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܓܐܪ ܘܡܢ ܕܢܤܒ ܫܒܝܩܬܐ ܓܐܪ
 
And I say to you, That whoever leaves his wife who is not adulteress, and marries another, commits adultery. And whoever takes her then that is divorced, commits adultery
10 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܝܬ ܥܕܠܝܐ ܒܝܢܝ ܓܒܪܐ ܠܐܢܬܬܐ ܠܐ ܦܩܚ ܠܡܤܒ ܐܢܬܬܐ
. His disciples say to him: If that is the case between man and wife, it is not advisable to marry
11 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܟܠܢܫ ܤܦܩ ܠܗ ܠܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܝܗܝܒ ܠܗ
. But he said to them: Not every one can accept what I have said, but only to those to whom it is granted
12 ܐܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܕܡܢ ܟܪܤܐ ܕܐܡܗܘܢ ܐܬܝܠܕܘ ܗܟܢܐ ܘܐܝܬ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܕܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܗܘܘ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܘܐܝܬ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܥܒܕܘ ܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܡܢ ܕܡܫܟܚ ܕܢܤܦܩ ܢܤܦܩ
For there are some abstainers born that way from their mother's womb; and there are some abstainers who were made abstainers by men; and there are some abstainers who have made themselves abstainers for the sake of the Realm of Heaven. Let anyone accept this who can
13 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܛܠܝܐ ܕܢܤܝܡ ܐܝܕܗ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܢܨܠܐ ܘܟܐܘ ܒܗܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
. Then they brought children to him, for he to lay his hand upon them and say a prayer. And his disciples turned them away
14 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܒܘܩܘ ܛܠܝܐ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܘܬܝ ܘܠܐ ܬܟܠܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܝܟ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
. But Jesus said to them: Let the children to come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the Realm of Heaven belongs
15 ܘܤܡ ܐܝܕܗ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܙܠ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ
. And he laid his hands upon them, and left from there
16 ܘܐܬܐ ܚܕ ܩܪܒ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܛܒܐ ܡܢܐ ܕܛܒ ܐܥܒܕ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܠܝ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
? And one came over nearby, and said to him: Good Teacher, what good deed must I do, for which eternal life may be mine
17 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܢܐ ܩܪܐ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ ܛܒܐ ܠܝܬ ܛܒܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܚܕ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܕܬܥܘܠ ܠܚܝܐ ܛܪ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ
. And he said to him: Why do you call me good ? There is none good, only God alone. But if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments
18 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܕܠܐ ܬܩܛܘܠ ܘܠܐ ܬܓܘܪ ܘܠܐ ܬܓܢܘܒ ܘܠܐ ܬܤܗܕ ܤܗܕܘܬ ܫܘܩܪܐ
He said to him, Which ? And Jesus said to him: You must not kill; and you must not commit adultery; and you must not steal; and you must not bring false witness
19 ܘܝܩܪ ܠܐܒܘܟ ܘܠܐܡܟ ܘܬܚܒ ܠܩܪܝܒܟ ܐܝܟ ܢܦܫܟ
. and do your duty to your father and your mother; and you must love your neighbor as yourself
20 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܘ ܥܠܝܡܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܢܛܪܬ ܐܢܝܢ ܡܢ ܛܠܝܘܬܝ ܡܢܐ ܚܤܝܪ ܐܢܐ
? The young man said to him: All these have I kept from my childhood. What more do I need to do
21 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܓܡܝܪܐ ܠܡܗܘܐ ܙܠ ܙܒܢ ܩܢܝܢܟ ܘܗܒ ܠܡܤܟܢܐ ܘܬܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܤܝܡܬܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ
Jesus said to him: If you wish to be perfect, go and sell what you own, and give the money to the poor; and you will have a treasure in Heaven; and then, come follow me
22 ܫܡܥ ܕܝܢ ܗܘ ܥܠܝܡܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܘܐܙܠ ܟܕ ܟܪܝܐ ܠܗ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܓܝܪ ܩܢܝܢܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ
. And the young man heard these words and he left sad; for he had great wealth
23 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܥܛܠܐ ܗܝ ܠܥܬܝܪܐ ܕܢܥܘܠ ܠܡܠܟܘܬ ܫܡܝܐ
. And Jesus said to his disciples: Truly I say to you, it is difficult for a wealthy man to enter into the Realm of Heaven
24 ܬܘܒ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܕܠܝܠ ܗܘ ܠܓܡܠܐ ܠܡܥܠ ܒܚܪܘܪܐ ܕܡܚܛܐ ܐܘ ܥܬܝܪܐ ܕܢܥܘܠ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
Yes, I say to you: It is easier for a rope [of camel hair] to pass thru the eye of a needle, than for a wealthy man to enter the Realm of God
25 ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܬܗܝܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܛܒ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܡܢܘ ܟܝ ܡܫܟܚ ܕܢܚܐ
! And when the disciples heard this, they were astonished, and said: Who then can attain to Life
26 ܚܪ ܒܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܗܕܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܡܕܡ ܡܫܟܚܐ
. Jesus looked on them, and said to them: For men this is impossible, but with God every thing is possible
27 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܐ ܐܢܚܢܢ ܫܒܩܢ ܟܠܡܕܡ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܒܬܪܟ ܡܢܐ ܟܝ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܢ
? Then answered Kephas, and said to him: we have left behind every thing to follow you: What are we to have
28 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܬܝܬܘܢ ܒܬܪܝ ܒܥܠܡܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܡܐ ܕܝܬܒ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܥܠ ܬܪܢܘܤ ܕܫܘܒܚܗ ܬܬܒܘܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܠ ܬܪܥܤܪ ܟܘܪܤܘܢ ܘܬܕܘܢܘܢ ܬܪܥܤܪ ܫܒܛܐ ܕܐܝܤܪܐܝܠ
Jesus said to them: Truly I say to you, that for you who have followed me, when all is made new, the Son of Man will be seated on the throne of his glory, you also will be seated on twelve thrones, and will judge the twelve tribes of Israel
29 ܘܟܠܢܫ ܕܫܒܩ ܒܬܐ ܐܘ ܐܚܐ ܐܘ ܐܚܘܬܐ ܐܘ ܐܒܐ ܐܘ ܐܡܐ ܐܘ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܐܘ ܒܢܝܐ ܐܘ ܩܘܪܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܫܡܝ ܚܕ ܒܡܐܐ ܢܩܒܠ ܘܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܢܐܪܬ
And everyone who has left houses, or brothers or sisters, or  father or  mother, or wife or children, or lands, for the sake of my name, will be repaid a hundred times over, and also inherit Eternal Life
30 ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܝܢ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܘܐܚܪܝܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ
. Many who are first will be last, and the last, first
 

Chapter 20

 1 ܕܡܝܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܡܪܐ ܒܝܬܐ ܕܢܦܩ ܒܨܦܪܐ ܕܢܐܓܘܪ ܦܥܠܐ ܠܟܪܡܗ
 
. For the Realm of Heaven is like a landowner, who went out at daybreak, to hire workers for his vineyard
 2 ܩܨ ܕܝܢ ܥܡ ܦܥܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܝܢܪܐ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܘܫܕܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܟܪܡܗ
 
. And he made an agreement with the workers for one denarius a day, and sent them to his vineyard
 3 ܘܢܦܩ ܒܬܠܬ ܫܥܝܢ ܘܚܙܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܒܫܘܩܐ ܘܒܛܝܠܝܢ
 
: And going out at the third hour, he saw others standing idle in the market place
 4 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܠܘ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܟܪܡܐ ܘܡܕܡ ܕܘܠܐ ܝܗܒ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ
 
; and said to them, You go to my vineyard, too and I will give you what is fair wage
 5 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܙܠܘ ܘܢܦܩ ܬܘܒ ܒܫܬ ܘܒܬܫܥ ܫܥܝܢ ܘܥܒܕ ܗܟܘܬ
 
. and they went. And at the sixth hour and again at ninth hour he went out, and did the same
 6 ܘܠܐܦܝ ܚܕܥܤܪܐ ܫܥܝܢ ܢܦܩ ܘܐܫܟܚ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܘܒܛܝܠܝܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܘܡܐ ܟܠܗ ܘܒܛܠܝܢ
 
And then about the eleventh hour, he went out and found others who were standing round, and he said to them: Why have you been standing here idle all day
 7 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܕܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܓܪܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܠܘ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܟܪܡܐ ܘܡܕܡ ܕܘܠܐ ܢܤܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
 
They answered him, Because no one has hired us. He said to them: You go to the vineyard, too, and I will give you what is fair wage
 8 ܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܪܡܫܐ ܐܡܪ ܡܪܐ ܟܪܡܐ ܠܪܒܝܬܗ ܩܪܝ ܦܥܠܐ ܘܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܓܪܗܘܢ ܘܫܪܐ ܡܢ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܩܕܡܝܐ
In the evening, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman: Call the workers, and pay them their wages; and starting with the last to come, and ending with the first
 9 ܘܐܬܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܚܕܥܤܪܐ ܫܥܝܢ ܢܤܒܘ ܕܝܢܪ ܕܝܢܪ
. And those of the eleventh hour came forward, and received one denarius each
10 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܤܒܪܘ ܕܝܬܝܪ ܫܩܠܝܢ ܘܫܩܠܘ ܕܝܢܪ ܕܝܢܪ ܐܦ ܗܢܘܢ
. And when the first came, they expected to get more; but they also received a denarius each
11 ܘܟܕ ܫܩܠܘ ܪܛܢܘ ܥܠ ܡܪܐ ܒܝܬܐ
, And when they took it, they grumbled at the landowner
12 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܚܕܐ ܫܥܐ ܥܒܕܘ ܘܐܫܘܝܬ ܐܢܘܢ ܥܡܢ ܕܫܩܠܢ ܝܘܩܪܗ ܕܝܘܡܐ ܘܚܘܡܗ
. and said: These who came last have worked just one hour, and you have treated them the same as us who have done a heavy day's work during the heat of it
13 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܚܒܪܝ ܠܐ ܡܥܘܠ ܐܢܐ ܒܟ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܕܝܢܪ ܩܨܬ ܥܡܝ
? But he answered one of them and said: My friend, I am not being unfair: was it not for one denarius that we did agreed on
14 ܤܒ ܕܝܠܟ ܘܙܠ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܗܢܐ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܐܬܠ ܐܝܟ ܕܠܟ
. Take your earnings and go: for I choose to pay the last to come as much as you
15 ܐܘ ܠܐ ܫܠܝܛ ܠܝ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܥܒܕ ܒܕܝܠܝ ܐܘ ܥܝܢܟ ܒܝܫܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܛܒ ܐܢܐ
? Have I no right to do what I want with what belongs to me; or are you envious because I am generous
16 ܗܟܢܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܘܩܕܡܝܐ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܤܓܝܐܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܩܪܝܐ ܘܙܥܘܪܝܢ ܓܒܝܐ
. Thus the last will be first, and the first, last: for many are called, but few are chosen
17 ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܢܤܩ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܕܒܪ ܠܬܪܥܤܪ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܒܝܢܘܗܝ ܘܠܗܘܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
: And Jesus was going up to Jerusalem: and on the way, he took his twelve disciples aside, and said to them
18 ܗܐ ܤܠܩܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܡܫܬܠܡ ܠܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܠܤܦܪܐ ܘܢܚܝܒܘܢܝܗܝ ܠܡܘܬܐ
. Now we are going to Jerusalem; and the Son of man will be handed over to the high priests and to the scribes, and they will condemn him to death
19 ܘܢܫܠܡܘܢܝܗܝ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܘܢܒܙܚܘܢ ܒܗ ܘܢܢܓܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܢܙܩܦܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܬܠܬܐ ܢܩܘܡ
. And they will hand him over to the pagans to be mocked, and scourged, and crucified, and the third day, he will rise again
20 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܬ ܠܗ ܐܡܗܘܢ ܕܒܢܝ ܙܒܕܝ ܗܝ ܘܒܢܝܗ ܘܤܓܕܬ ܠܗ ܘܫܐܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܗ ܡܕܡ
. Then the mother of Zebedee's children came to him with her sons; and she bowed to him, and made a request of him
21 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܢܐ ܨܒܝܐ ܐܢܬܝ ܐܡܪܐ ܠܗ ܐܡܪ ܕܢܬܒܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܒܢܝ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܟ ܘܚܕ ܡܢ ܤܡܠܟ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܟ
And he said to her, What is it you want ? She said to him: Promise that these two sons of mine may sit one at your right hand and the other at your left, in your Realm
22 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܫܐܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܫܬܐ ܟܤܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܠܡܫܬܐ ܐܘ ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܥܡܕ ܐܢܐ ܬܥܡܕܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ
Jesus answered: You do not know what you are asking. Can you drink of the cup which I am to drink ? or be baptized with the baptism, that I am baptized with ? They say to him: We can
23 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܤܝ ܬܫܬܘܢ ܘܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܥܡܕ ܐܢܐ ܬܥܡܕܘܢ ܕܬܬܒܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܝ ܘܡܢ ܤܡܠܝ ܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܕܝܠܝ ܕܐܬܠ ܐܠܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܛܝܒܬ ܡܢ ܐܒܝ
He said to them: You shall drink of my cup, and will be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but as for seats at my right hand and my left, these are not mine to grant, those are for whom they have been allotted by my Father
24 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܫܡܥܘ ܥܤܪܐ ܪܓܙܘ ܥܠ ܗܢܘܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܐܚܝܢ
. And when the other ten heard this, they were indignant with the two brothers
25 ܘܩܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܪܫܝܗܘܢ ܕܥܡܡܐ ܡܪܝܗܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܪܘܪܒܢܝܗܘܢ ܫܠܝܛܝܢ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ
. And Jesus called them to him and said: You know that the rulers of the pagans lord it over them, and their great men make their authority felt
26 ܠܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܝܢܬܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܪܒܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܫܡܫܢܐ
: Not so should it be among you. But whoever among you wants to be great, let him be to you as a servant
27 ܘܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܥܒܕܐ
: and whoever among you wants to be first, let him be your servant
28 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܠܐ ܐܬܐ ܕܢܫܬܡܫ ܐܠܐ ܕܢܫܡܫ ܘܕܢܬܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܦܘܪܩܢܐ ܚܠܦ ܤܓܝܐܐ
. just as the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve; and to give his life a ransom for many
29 ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܐܝܪܝܚܘ ܐܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܬܪܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ
. And as Jesus left Jericho, a large crowd followed him
30 ܘܗܐ ܤܡܝܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܝܬܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܥܒܪ ܝܗܒܘ ܩܠܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝܢ ܡܪܝ ܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ
Now there were two blind men were sitting by the way side. When they heard that it was Jesus who was passing by, they shouted out: Have pity on us, Lord, Son of David
31 ܟܢܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܐܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗܘܢ ܕܢܫܬܩܘܢ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܐܪܝܡܘ ܩܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܡܪܢ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝܢ ܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ
. And the crowds scolded them and told them to be quiet. But they only shouted more, and said: Lord, have pity on us, Son of David
32 ܘܩܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܩܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܥܒܕ ܠܟܘܢ
? And Jesus stopped, and called to them, and said: What do you want me to do for you
33 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܪܢ ܕܢܬܦܬܚܢ ܥܝܢܝܢ
. They said to him: Lord, let us have our sight back
34 ܘܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܩܪܒ ܠܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܐܬܦܬܚ ܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ
. And he felt pity for them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their sight returned, and they followed him
 

Chapter 21

 1 ܘܟܕ ܩܪܒ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܒܝܬ ܦܓܐ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܛܘܪܐ ܕܙܝܬܐ ܫܕܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܬܪܝܢ ܡܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
 
; And as he neared Jerusalem, and had come into Bethphage, alongside of the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples
 2 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܠܘ ܠܩܪܝܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܠܩܘܒܠܟܘܢ ܘܡܚܕܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܚܡܪܐ ܕܐܤܝܪܐ ܘܥܝܠܐ ܥܡܗ ܫܪܘ ܐܝܬܘ ܠܝ
 
and said to them: Go to the village in front of you, and you will immediately find a tied up donkey, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me
 3 ܘܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܐܡܪ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܕܠܡܪܢ ܡܬܒܥܝܢ ܘܡܚܕܐ ܡܫܕܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܟܐ
 
. And if anyone says anything to you, tell them, The Master needs them and will send them back directly
 4 ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܗܘܬ ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܒܝܕ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ
 
: Now this whole event took place to fulfill the prophecy
 5 ܐܡܪܘ ܠܒܪܬ ܨܗܝܘܢ ܗܐ ܡܠܟܟܝ ܐܬܐ ܠܟܝ ܡܟܝܟ ܘܪܟܝܒ ܥܠ ܚܡܪܐ ܘܥܠ ܥܝܠܐ ܒܪ ܐܬܢܐ
 
Say to the daughter of Zion, Behold, your king comes to you, humble, and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden
 6 ܘܐܙܠܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܥܒܕܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܦܩܕ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ
 
. And the disciples went out, and did as Jesus had told them
 7 ܘܐܝܬܝܘ ܠܚܡܪܐ ܘܠܥܝܠܐ ܘܤܡܘ ܥܠ ܥܝܠܐ ܢܚܬܝܗܘܢ ܘܪܟܒ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܝܫܘܥ
 
. And they brought the donkey and the colt, then they laid their cloaks on the colt, and Jesus sat upon them
 8 ܘܤܘܓܐܐ ܕܟܢܫܐ ܡܫܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܐܢܝܗܘܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܦܤܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܤܘܟܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܘܪܡܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ
 
. And a great crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees, and put them on the path
 9 ܟܢܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܒܬܪܗ ܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܘܫܥܢܐ ܠܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܒܪܝܟ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܐ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܐܘܫܥܢܐ ܒܡܪܘܡܐ
 
And the crowds that went ahead of him, and those who followed after him, were all shouting: Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest heavens
10 ܘܟܕ ܥܠ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܐܬܬܙܝܥܬ ܟܠܗ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܘ ܗܢܐ
 
, And when he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was in turmoil; Who is this?, they said
11 ܟܢܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܗܢܘ ܝܫܘܥ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܡܢ ܢܨܪܬ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ
. And the crowds replied, This is the prophet Jesus from Nazareth in Galilee
12 ܘܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܦܩ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܙܒܢܝܢ ܘܡܙܒܢܝܢ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܤܚܦ ܦܬܘܪܐ ܕܡܥܪܦܢܐ ܘܟܘܪܤܘܬܐ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܙܒܢܝܢ ܝܘܢܐ
And Jesus went into the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling there, and overturned the tables of the money changers, and the chairs of those that sold pigeons
13 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܬܝܒ ܗܘ ܕܒܝܬܝ ܒܝܬ ܨܠܘܬܐ ܢܬܩܪܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܥܒܕܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܡܥܪܬܐ ܕܠܤܛܝܐ
. And he said to them: It is written, my house will be called the house of prayer; but you have turned it into a den of thieves
14 ܘܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܤܡܝܐ ܘܚܓܝܤܐ ܘܐܤܝ ܐܢܘܢ
. And there were also blind and lame ones who came to him in the temple; and he healed them
15 ܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܕܝܢ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܬܕܡܪܬܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܘܛܠܝܐ ܕܩܥܝܢ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܘܫܥܢܐ ܠܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܐܬܒܐܫ ܠܗܘܢ
And when the high priests and Pharisees saw the wonderful things he did, and the children shouting, Hosanna to the Son of David in the temple, they were indignant
16 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܫܡܥ ܐܢܬ ܡܢܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܝܢ ܡܢ ܡܬܘܡ ܠܐ ܩܪܝܬܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܦܘܡܐ ܕܛܠܝܐ ܘܕܝܠܘܕܐ ܬܩܢܬ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ
And they said to him: Do you hear what they are saying ? Yes. Jesus said to them: Have you never read, By the mouth of children and babes you have made sure of praise
17 ܘܫܒܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܢܦܩ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܠܒܝܬ ܥܢܝܐ ܘܒܬ ܬܡܢ
. And with that he left them, and went out of the city to Bethany, and stayed the night there
18 ܒܨܦܪܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܗܦܟ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܟܦܢ
. And in the morning as he returned to the city, he felt hungry
19 ܘܚܙܐ ܬܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚ ܒܗ ܡܕܡ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܛܪܦܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܒܟܝ ܬܘܒ ܦܐܪܐ ܠܥܠܡ ܘܡܚܕܐ ܝܒܫܬ ܬܬܐ ܗܝ
And seeing a fig-tree by the road, and went up to it and found nothing on it but leaves alone. And he said to it: May you never bear fruit again. And at that instant the fig-tree withered
20 ܘܚܙܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܬܗܪܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܝܒܫܬ ܬܬܐ
! And the disciples were amazed at what they saw, and said: How instantly did the fig-tree wither
21 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܢ ܬܗܘܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܬܬܦܠܓܘܢ ܠܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܗܕܐ ܕܬܬܐ ܬܥܒܕܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܐܦܢ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܕܐܫܬܩܠ ܘܦܠ ܒܝܡܐ ܬܗܘܐ
Jesus answered them: Truly I say to you, if you have faith, and do not doubt at all, not only may you do this to the fig-tree, but even if you will say to this mountain, Get up, and cast yourself into the sea, it will be done
22 ܘܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܬܫܐܠܘܢ ܒܨܠܘܬܐ ܘܬܗܝܡܢܘܢ ܬܤܒܘܢ
. And if you have faith, whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive
23 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܥܡܐ ܟܕ ܡܠܦ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܫܘܠܛܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܘܡܢܘ ܝܗܒ ܠܟ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܗܢܐ
And when Jesus had gone to the temple, the high priests and the elders of the people came to him as he was teaching, and said to him: What authority do you have to do these things? And who gave you this authority
24 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܫܐܠܟܘܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܘܐܢ ܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܝ ܘܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ
And I, too, Jesus replied to them, will ask you one question, and if you will tell me the answer, I will then tell you by what authority I do these things
25 ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܗ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܗܝ ܐܘ ܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܬܪܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܐܢ ܢܐܡܪ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܢ ܘܥܠ ܡܢܐ ܠܐ ܗܝܡܢܬܘܢܝܗܝ
The baptism of John, from where was it ? From Heaven, or from men ? And they argued it out thus among themselves, and said: If we should say, From Heaven; he will say to us, Why did you refuse to believe him
26 ܘܕܢܐܡܪ ܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܚܠܝܢ ܐܢܚܢܢ ܡܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܟ ܢܒܝܐ ܐܚܝܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܠܝܘܚܢܢ
. And if we should say, From man; we the crowd to fear, for they all hold that John was a prophet
27 ܥܢܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ
. And so they answered him: We do not know. Jesus said to them: Nor will I tell you by what authority I do these things
28 ܡܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܒܢܝܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܘܩܪܒ ܠܘܬ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܒܪܝ ܙܠ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܦܠܘܚ ܒܟܪܡܐ
. And what is your take on this ? A man had two sons; and he went to the first and said to him, My Son, go and work today in the vineyard
29 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܒܚܪܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܬܘܝ ܘܐܙܠ
. And he answered, I will no go. But afterwards he reconsidered and went
30 ܘܩܪܒ ܠܘܬ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܟܘܬ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܡܪܝ ܘܠܐ ܐܙܠ
. And he went to the other, and said the same thing to him. And he answered: I will go, sir, but did not go
31 ܡܢܘ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܥܒܕ ܨܒܝܢܐ ܕܐܒܘܗܝ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܗܘ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܡܟܤܐ ܘܙܢܝܬܐ ܩܕܡܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
Which of the two did the will of his father ? They say to him, The first. Jesus said to them: Truly I say to you, that tax collectors and harlots so go into the Realm of God before you
32 ܐܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܗܝܡܢܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܡܟܤܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܙܢܝܬܐ ܗܝܡܢܘܗܝ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܟܕ ܚܙܝܬܘܢ ܐܬܬܘܝܬܘܢ ܒܚܪܬܐ ܕܬܗܝܡܢܘܢ ܒܗ
For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe in him; but the tax collectors and harlots believed in him: and you, even after you had seen him, did not then reconsider and believe in him
33 ܫܡܥܘ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܡܬܠܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܡܪܐ ܒܝܬܐ ܘܢܨܒ ܟܪܡܐ ܘܐܚܕܪܗ ܤܝܓܐ ܘܚܦܪ ܒܗ ܡܥܨܪܬܐ ܘܒܢܐ ܒܗ ܡܓܕܠܐ ܘܐܘܚܕܗ ܠܦܠܚܐ ܘܚܙܩ
Listen to another parable. There was a man, a landowner, who planted a vineyard, and fenced it with a hedge, and dug a wine-press in it, and built a tower in it, and leased it to tenants, and moved far away
34 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܡܛܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܕܦܐܪܐ ܫܕܪ ܠܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܠܘܬ ܦܠܚܐ ܕܢܫܕܪܘܢ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܦܐܪܐ ܕܟܪܡܗ
. And when vintage time arrived, he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his produce
35 ܘܐܚܕܘ ܦܠܚܐ ܠܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܡܚܐܘܗܝ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܪܓܡܘܗܝ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܩܛܠܘܗܝ
. And the tenants seized hold of one of his servants, and beat him, and stoned another, and they killed one
36 ܘܬܘܒ ܫܕܪ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܤܓܝܐܝܢ ܡܢ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܘܗܟܘܬ ܥܒܕܘ ܠܗܘܢ
. And again he sent other servants, in greater numbers than the first time; and they did the same to them
37 ܐܚܪܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܫܕܪ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܠܒܪܗ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܟܒܪ ܢܒܗܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܒܪܝ
. And at last he sent to them his son: for he said, They will respect my son
38 ܦܠܚܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܠܒܪܐ ܐܡܪܘ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ ܗܢܘ ܝܪܬܐ ܬܘ ܢܩܛܠܝܘܗܝ ܘܢܐܚܘܕ ܝܪܬܘܬܗ
. But the tenants, when they saw the son, said among themselves: This is the heir: Come on; let us kill him, and take over his inheritance
39 ܘܐܚܕܘ ܐܦܩܘܗܝ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܟܪܡܐ ܘܩܛܠܘܗܝ
. And they seized hold of him, threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him
40 ܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܪܗ ܕܟܪܡܐ ܡܢܐ ܢܥܒܕ ܠܦܠܚܐ ܗܢܘܢ
? When the owner of the vineyard comes; what will he do to those tenants
41 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܕܒܝܫ ܒܝܫ ܢܘܒܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܟܪܡܐ ܢܘܚܕ ܠܐܚܪܢܐ ܦܠܚܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܗܒܝܢ ܠܗ ܦܐܪܐ ܒܙܒܢܗܘܢ
. They say to him: He will brutally crush them; and then lease the vineyard to other tenants, who will give him the produce at vintage time
42 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐ ܡܡܬܘܡ ܩܪܝܬܘܢ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܕܟܐܦܐ ܕܐܤܠܝܘ ܒܢܝܐ ܗܝ ܗܘܬ ܠܪܫܐ ܕܙܘܝܬܐ ܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܡܪܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܗܕܐ ܘܐܝܬܝܗ ܬܕܡܘܪܬܐ ܒܥܝܢܝܢ
Jesus said to them: Have you never read in the scripture, The stone which the builders rejected, has become the keystone: this was the Lord's doing; and isn't it wonderful to see
43 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܬܫܬܩܠ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܬܬܝܗܒ ܠܥܡܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܦܐܪܐ
. Therefore I say to you, That the Realm of God will be taken from you, and will be given to a people that will yield it's fruits
44
ܘܡܢ ܕܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܟܐܦܐ ܗܕܐ ܢܬܪܥܥ ܘܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܗܝ ܬܦܠ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܬܕܪܝܘܗܝ
. And whoever falls upon this stone, will be smashed; and on whomsoever it will fall, it will crush him
45 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܡܬܠܘܗܝ ܝܕܥܘ ܕܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܡܪ
. And when the high priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they realized he was speaking about them
46 ܘܒܥܘ ܠܡܐܚܕܗ ܘܕܚܠܘ ܡܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܝܟ ܕܠܢܒܝܐ ܐܚܝܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
. And they would have liked to arrest him, but were afraid of the crowd who looked on him as a prophet
