12 ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܓܠܘܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܒܒܠ ܝܘܟܢܝܐ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܫܠܬܐܝܠ ܫܠܬܐܝܠ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܙܘܪܒܒܠ
: And after the captivity of Babylon, Jeconiah fathered Salathiel: Salathiel fathered Zerubbabel

. Jacob fathered Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called the Messiah
17 ܟܠܗܝܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܡܢ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܕܘܝܕ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܐܪܒܥܤܪܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܘܝܕ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܓܠܘܬܐ ܕܒܒܠ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܐܪܒܥܤܪܐ ܘܡܢ ܓܠܘܬܐ ܕܒܒܠ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܡܫܝܚܐ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܐܪܒܥܤܪܐ
Therefore the total number of generations are, from Abraham to David, fourteen generations, and from David to the captivity of Babylon, fourteen generations, and from the captivity of Babylon to the Messiah, fourteen generations
18 ܝܠܕܗ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܟܕ ܡܟܝܪܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܪܝܡ ܐܡܗ ܠܝܘܤܦ ܥܕܠܐ ܢܫܬܘܬܦܘܢ ܐܫܬܟܚܬ ܒܛܢܐ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
Now the birth of Jesus the Messiah was like this. While his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they lived together, she was found with child from through the Holy Spirit
19 ܝܘܤܦ ܕܝܢ ܒܥܠܗ ܟܐܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܕܢܦܪܤܝܗ ܘܐܬܪܥܝ ܗܘܐ ܕܡܛܫܝܐܝܬ ܢܫܪܝܗ
. And Joseph her husband was a just man, and unwilling to expose her, yet he considered divorcing her privately
20 ܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܪܥܝ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܒܚܠܡܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܘܤܦ ܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠ ܠܡܤܒ ܠܡܪܝܡ ܐܢܬܬܟ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܬܝܠܕ ܒܗ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܗܘ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
And while he thought about these things, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said: Joseph, son of David, fear not about taking Mary as your wife; for that which is conceived in her, is of the Holy Spirit
21 ܬܐܠܕ ܕܝܢ ܒܪܐ ܘܬܩܪܐ ܫܡܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܢܚܝܘܗܝ ܠܥܡܗ ܡܢ ܚܛܗܝܗܘܢ
. and she is to have a son; and you are to call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins
22
ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗ ܕܗܘܬ ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܡܢ ܡܪܝܐ ܒܝܕ ܢܒܝܐ
: Now all this happened to fulfill what was spoken of the Lord by the prophet
23 ܕܗܐ ܒܬܘܠܬܐ ܬܒܛܢ ܘܬܐܠܕ ܒܪܐ ܘܢܩܪܘܢ ܫܡܗ ܥܡܢܘܐܝܠ ܕܡܬܬܪܓܡ ܥܡܢ ܐܠܗܢ
The virgin shall be with child, and give birth to a son, and you will call his name Emmanuel, which means, Our God with us
24 ܟܕ ܩܡ ܕܝܢ ܝܘܤܦ ܡܢ ܫܢܬܗ ܥܒܕ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܦܩܕ ܠܗ ܡܠܐܟܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܕܒܪܗ ܠܐܢܬܬܗ
. And when Joseph awoke from his sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord directed him, and received his wife
25 ܘܠܐ ܚܟܡܗ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܝܠܕܬܗ ܠܒܪܗ ܒܘܟܪܐ ܘܩܪܬ ܫܡܗ ܝܫܘܥ
. And he took not of her, until she had given birth to her first-born son, and she called is name Jesus

Chapter 2

 1 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܝܠܕ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܒܝܬ ܠܚܡ ܕܝܗܘܕܐ ܒܝܘܡܝ ܗܪܘܕܤ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܬܘ ܡܓܘܫܐ ܡܢ ܡܕܢܚܐ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
, After Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea, in the days of King Herod, there came Magi from the East to Jerusalem
 2 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܝܟܘ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܐܬܝܠܕ ܚܙܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܟܘܟܒܗ ܒܡܕܢܚܐ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܠܡܤܓܕ ܠܗ
 
inquiring: Where is the infant king of the Jews ? We have seen his star in the East, and have come to pay him homage
 3 ܫܡܥ ܕܝܢ ܗܪܘܕܤ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܐܬܬܙܝܥ ܘܟܠܗ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܥܡܗ
 
. And King Herod heard, and he became perturbed; and with him all Jerusalem
 4 ܘܟܢܫ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܤܦܪܐ ܕܥܡܐ ܘܡܫܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܐܝܟܐ ܡܬܝܠܕ ܡܫܝܚܐ
 
? And he summoned all the high priests and the scribes of the people, and inquired of them, Where was the Messiah to be born
 5 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܒܒܝܬ ܠܚܡ ܕܝܗܘܕܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܟܬܝܒ ܒܢܒܝܐ
 
: In Bethlehem of Judaea; they said: for this is what the prophet wrote
 6 ܐܦ ܐܢܬܝ ܒܝܬ ܠܚܡ ܕܝܗܘܕܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܬܝ ܒܨܝܪܐ ܒܡܠܟܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܐ ܡܢܟܝ ܓܝܪ ܢܦܘܩ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܗܘ ܢܪܥܝܘܗܝ ܠܥܡܝ ܐܝܤܪܐܝܠ
 
. And you, Bethlehem of Judaea, are not the little among the kings of Judaea, since from you shall come a king who will shepherd my people Israel
 7 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܗܪܘܕܤ ܡܛܫܝܐܝܬ ܩܪܐ ܠܡܓܘܫܐ ܘܝܠܦ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܘܟܒܐ
 
. Then Herod summoned the Magi to see him privately and find out from them what date the star had appeared to them
 8 ܘܫܕܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܒܝܬ ܠܚܡ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܠܘ ܥܩܒܘ ܥܠ ܛܠܝܐ ܚܦܝܛܐܝܬ ܘܡܐ ܕܐܫܟܚܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܬܘ ܚܘܐܘܢܝ ܕܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܐܙܠ ܐܤܓܘܕ ܠܗ
 
Then he sent them to Bethlehem, and said to them: Go, find out all about the child; and when you have found him, come and tell me, that I too may go and do him homage
 9 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܡܢ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܙܠܘ ܘܗܐ ܟܘܟܒܐ ܗܘ ܕܚܙܘ ܒܡܕܢܚܐ ܐܙܠ ܗܘܐ ܩܕܡܝܗܘܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܩܡ ܠܥܠ ܡܢ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܛܠܝܐ
 
And having heard what the king had said, they set out, and going there in front of them was the star they had seen in the East, until it came and stood over where the child was
10 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܠܟܘܟܒܐ ܚܕܝܘ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܕܛܒ
 
. And when they saw the star, they rejoiced much, with great delight
11 ܘܥܠܘ ܠܒܝܬܐ ܘܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܠܛܠܝܐ ܥܡ ܡܪܝܡ ܐܡܗ ܘܢܦܠܘ ܤܓܕܘ ܠܗ ܘܦܬܚܘ ܤܝܡܬܗܘܢ ܘܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܩܘܪܒܢܐ ܕܗܒܐ ܘܡܘܪܐ ܘܠܒܘܢܬܐ
And going into the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they fell down and worshipped him, and they opened their treasures, and presented to him gifts; gold, and myrrh, and frankincense
12 ܘܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܒܚܠܡܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܗܦܟܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܗܪܘܕܤ ܘܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܐܙܠܘ ܠܐܬܪܗܘܢ
. And it was shown them in a dream, that they should not return to Herod. And by another route they went back to their country
13 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܐܙܠܘ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܒܚܠܡܐ ܠܝܘܤܦ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܡ ܕܒܪ ܠܛܠܝܐ ܘܠܐܡܗ ܘܥܪܘܩ ܠܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܬܡܢ ܗܘܝ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܗܪܘܕܤ ܠܡܒܥܝܗ ܠܛܠܝܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܘܒܕܝܘܗܝ
And when they were gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, and said to him: Arise, take the child and his mother, and flee into Egypt; and remain there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child, so as to do away with him
14 ܝܘܤܦ ܕܝܢ ܩܡ ܫܩܠܗ ܠܛܠܝܐ ܘܠܐܡܗ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܘܥܪܩ ܠܡܨܪܝܢ
. Then Joseph arose, took the child and his mother by night, and fled to Egypt
15 ܘܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܡܘܬܗ ܕܗܪܘܕܤ ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܡܢ ܡܪܝܐ ܒܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܡܢ ܡܨܪܝܢ ܩܪܝܬ ܠܒܪܝ
And he stayed there until the death of Herod; so as to fulfill what the Lord had spoken through the prophet: I called my son out of Egypt
16 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܗܪܘܕܤ ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܐܬܒܙܚ ܡܢ ܡܓܘܫܐ ܐܬܚܡܬ ܛܒ ܘܫܕܪ ܩܛܠ ܛܠܝܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܒܝܬ ܠܚܡ ܘܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܬܚܘܡܝܗ ܡܢ ܒܪ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܘܠܬܚܬ ܐܝܟ ܙܒܢܐ ܕܥܩܒ ܡܢ ܡܓܘܫܐ
Herod was furious when he saw that he had been outwitted by the Magi. And he sent to have killed all the male children in Bethlehem, and in all its surrounding areas, from a child of two years or less, according to the date that he had been careful to learn from the Magi
17 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܬܡܠܝ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܒܝܕ ܐܪܡܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ
: It was then that which was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled
18 ܩܠܐ ܐܫܬܡܥ ܒܪܡܬܐ ܒܟܝܐ ܘܐܠܝܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܪܚܝܠ ܒܟܝܐ ܥܠ ܒܢܝܗ ܘܠܐ ܨܒܝܐ ܠܡܬܒܝܐܘ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ
A voice was heard in Rama, weeping and loud lamentation; it was Rachel weeping for her children, and unwilling to be comforted, because they were no more
19 ܟܕ ܡܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܗܪܘܕܤ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܒܚܠܡܐ ܠܝܘܤܦ ܒܡܨܪܝܢ
, After King Herod was dead, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt
20 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܡ ܕܒܪ ܠܛܠܝܐ ܘܠܐܡܗ ܘܙܠ ܠܐܪܥܐ ܕܐܝܤܪܐܝܠ ܡܝܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܢܦܫܗ ܕܛܠܝܐ
and said: Arise, take the child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel; for those have died who were seeking the life of the child
21 ܘܝܘܤܦ ܩܡ ܕܒܪ ܠܛܠܝܐ ܘܠܐܡܗ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܐܪܥܐ ܕܐܝܤܪܐܝܠ
. And Joseph arose, and took the child and his mother, and came to the land of Israel
22 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܫܡܥ ܕܐܪܟܠܐܘܤ ܗܘܐ ܡܠܟܐ ܒܝܗܘܕ ܚܠܦ ܗܪܘܕܤ ܐܒܘܗܝ ܕܚܠ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܠܬܡܢ ܘܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗ ܒܚܠܡܐ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ
And when he heard that Archelaus was king in Judaea, in place of his father Herod, he feared to go there. And it was revealed to him in a dream, that he should go to the land of Galilee
23 ܘܐܬܐ ܥܡܪ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܢܨܪܬ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܒܢܒܝܐ ܕܢܨܪܝܐ ܢܬܩܪܐ
And he came and dwelt in the city called Nazareth, so that what was said by the prophet might be fulfilled: that he will be called a Nazarene


Chapter 3

 1 ܒܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܐܬܐ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܡܥܡܕܢܐ ܘܡܟܪܙ ܗܘܐ ܒܚܘܪܒܐ ܕܝܗܘܕ
 
, And in those days came John the Baptist. And he would preach in the desert of Judaea
 2 ܘܐܡܪ ܬܘܒܘ ܩܪܒܬ ܠܗ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
 
. and said: Repent; the Realm of Heaven is near
 3 ܗܢܘ ܓܝܪ ܗܘ ܕܐܡܝܪ ܒܝܕ ܐܫܥܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܩܠܐ ܕܩܪܐ ܒܚܘܪܒܐ ܛܝܒܘ ܐܘܪܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܐܫܘܘ ܠܫܒܝܠܘܗܝ
 
It is him for whom it was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: The voice of one crying in the desert, Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths
 4 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܘܫܗ ܕܤܥܪܐ ܕܓܡܠܐ ܘܐܤܪ ܚܨܐ ܕܡܫܟܐ ܥܠ ܚܨܘܗܝ ܘܡܐܟܘܠܬܗ ܩܡܨܐ ܘܕܒܫܐ ܕܒܪܐ
 
. And as to this John, his clothes were of camel's hair, and loincloth; and his food was grasshoppers and wild honey
 5 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܦܩܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܘܬܗ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܟܠܗ ܝܗܘܕ ܘܟܠܗ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܚܕܪܝ ܝܘܪܕܢܢ
 
. Then they went out to him from Jerusalem and all Judaea, and all the area surrounding the Jordan
 6 ܘܥܡܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗ ܒܝܘܪܕܢܢ ܢܗܪܐ ܟܕ ܡܘܕܝܢ ܒܚܛܗܝܗܘܢ
 
. And they would be baptized by him in the river Jordan, while they would confess of their sins
 7 ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܝܢ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܡܢ ܙܕܘܩܝܐ ܕܐܬܝܢ ܠܡܥܡܕ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܠܕܐ ܕܐܟܕܢܐ ܡܢܘ ܚܘܝܟܘܢ ܠܡܥܪܩ ܡܢ ܪܘܓܙܐ ܕܐܬܐ
 
But when he saw many of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees, that came to be baptized, he said to them: Generation of vipers, who has informed you to flee from the wrath that will come
 8 ܥܒܕܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܦܐܪܐ ܕܫܘܝܢ ܠܬܝܒܘܬܐ
 
. Therefore do the fruits that are worthy of repentance
 9 ܘܠܐ ܬܤܒܪܘܢ ܘܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܒܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܕܐܒܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܫܟܚ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܠܡܩܡܘ ܒܢܝܐ ܠܐܒܪܗܡ
 
And do not hope and say, within yourselves, that Abraham is our father: for I say to you, that God is able to raise up children for Abraham from these stones
10 ܗܐ ܕܝܢ ܢܪܓܐ ܤܝܡ ܥܠ ܥܩܪܐ ܕܐܝܠܢܐ ܟܠ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܦܐܪܐ ܛܒܐ ܠܐ ܥܒܕ ܡܬܦܤܩ ܘܢܦܠ ܒܢܘܪܐ
And Behold, the ax is placed on the root of trees. All the trees, therefore, which do not bring forth good fruit, will be cut [down], and thrown into the fire
11 ܐܢܐ ܡܥܡܕ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܡܝܐ ܠܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܒܬܪܝ ܐܬܐ ܚܤܝܢ ܗܘ ܡܢܝ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܫܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܤܢܘܗܝ ܠܡܫܩܠ ܗܘ ܡܥܡܕ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܒܢܘܪܐ
I baptize you with water unto repentance; but he that will come after me is more powerful than me; he whose sandals I am not worthy to remove. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire
12 ܗܘ ܕܪܦܫܐ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܘܡܕܟܐ ܐܕܪܘܗܝ ܘܚܛܐ ܟܢܫ ܠܐܘܨܪܘܗܝ ܘܬܒܢܐ ܡܘܩܕ ܒܢܘܪܐ ܕܠܐ ܕܥܟܐ
He whose winnowing fan is in hand will clean his threshing-floor. The wheat he will gather into his granaries; and the chaff he will burn with fire that does not extinguish
13 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܬܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܠܝܘܪܕܢܢ ܠܘܬ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܕܢܥܡܕ ܡܢܗ
. Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan for John, to be baptized by him
14 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܟܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܤܢܝܩ ܐܢܐ ܕܡܢܟ ܐܬܥܡܕ ܘܐܢܬ ܠܘܬܝ ܐܬܝܬ
? But John refused him; and said, I ought to be baptized by you, and you come to me
15 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܒܘܩ ܗܫܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܝܐܐ ܠܢ ܕܢܡܠܐ ܟܠܗ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܒܩܗ
And Jesus answered, and said to him: Allow it now, as such, for it is proper for us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he allowed it
16 ܟܕ ܥܡܕ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܚܕܐ ܤܠܩ ܡܢ ܡܝܐ ܘܐܬܦܬܚܘ ܠܗ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܚܙܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܢܚܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܝܘܢܐ ܘܐܬܬ ܥܠܘܗܝ
And when Jesus was baptized, he arose from the water and at once Heaven was opened to him; and he saw the Holy Spirit descending like a dove, and it came upon him
17 ܘܗܐ ܩܠܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܢܘ ܒܪܝ ܚܒܝܒܐ ܕܒܗ ܐܨܛܒܝܬ
. And a voice from Heaven said: This is my beloved Son, in whom I am pleased

 

Chapter 4

 1 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܬܕܒܪ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܠܡܕܒܪܐ ܕܢܬܢܤܐ ܡܢ ܐܟܠܩܪܨܐ
. Then Jesus was taken by the Holy Spirit into the desert, to be tempted by the Deceiver
 2 ܘܨܡ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܘܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܠܝܠܘܢ ܐܚܪܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܟܦܢ
 
. And he fasted forty days and forty nights, and after which he hungered
 3 ܘܩܪܒ ܗܘ ܕܡܢܤܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܢ ܒܪܗ ܐܢܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܡܪ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܢܗܘܝܢ ܠܚܡܐ
 
. And the Tempter approached and said to him: If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread
 4 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܟܬܝܒ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܠܚܡܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܚܝܐ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܟܠ ܡܠܐ ܕܢܦܩܐ ܡܢ ܦܘܡܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
 
But he replied, and said: It is written, that not by only bread does the son of man live; but by all the words that proceed from the mouth of God
 5 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܕܒܪܗ ܐܟܠܩܪܨܐ ܠܡܕܝܢܬ ܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ ܥܠ ܟܢܦܐ ܕܗܝܟܠܐ
 
, Then the Deceiver took him to the holy city, and set him on a parapet of the temple
 6 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܢ ܒܪܗ ܐܢܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܫܕܝ ܢܦܫܟ ܠܬܚܬ ܟܬܝܒ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܡܠܐܟܘܗܝ ܢܦܩܕ ܥܠܝܟ ܘܥܠ ܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܢܫܩܠܘܢܟ ܕܠܐ ܬܬܩܠ ܒܟܐܦܐ ܪܓܠܟ
 
and said to him: If you are the Son of God, cast yourself down: for it is written that he will order his angels take care of you, and in their hands they will carry you up, lest you should strike your foot against a stone
 7 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܬܘܒ ܟܬܝܒ ܕܠܐ ܬܢܤܐ ܠܡܪܝܐ ܐܠܗܟ
 
. Jesus said to him: Again, it is written, that you will not test the Lord your God
 8 ܬܘܒ ܕܒܪܗ ܐܟܠܩܪܨܐ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܕܛܒ ܪܡ ܘܚܘܝܗ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܘܫܘܒܚܗܝܢ
 
Again the Deceiver took him to a mountain that was very high, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and their splendor
 9 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܠܟ ܐܬܠ ܐܢ ܬܦܠ ܬܤܓܘܕ ܠܝ
 
. and said to him: All these will I give you, if you will fall and worship me
10 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܙܠ ܠܟ ܤܛܢܐ ܟܬܝܒ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܡܪܝܐ ܐܠܗܟ ܬܤܓܘܕ ܘܠܗ ܒܠܚܘܕܘܗܝ ܬܦܠܘܚ
Then Jesus said to him: Leave, Enemy; for it is written, that you will worship the Lord, your God; and him alone shall you serve
11 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܒܩܗ ܐܟܠܩܪܨܐ ܘܗܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܘܡܫܡܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
. Then the Deceiver left him: and Behold, angels came, and attended to him
12 ܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܫܬܠܡ ܫܢܝ ܠܗ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ
. And when Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he went back to Galilee
13 ܘܫܒܩܗ ܠܢܨܪܬ ܘܐܬܐ ܥܡܪ ܒܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܝܡܐ ܒܬܚܘܡܐ ܕܙܒܘܠܘܢ ܘܕܢܦܬܠܝ
. And he left Nazareth, and came and dwelt in Capernaum, on the side of the sea by the border of Zebulon and Naphthali
14 ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܒܝܕ ܐܫܥܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ
: So that might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophet Isaiah, who said
15 ܐܪܥܐ ܕܙܒܘܠܘܢ ܐܪܥܐ ܕܢܦܬܠܝ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܝܡܐ ܥܒܪܘܗܝ ܕܝܘܪܕܢܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ
; The land of Zebulon, the land of Naphthali, the way of the sea on the far side of Jordan, Galilee of the Nations
16 ܥܡܐ ܕܝܬܒ ܒܚܫܘܟܐ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܪܒܐ ܚܙܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܬܒܝܢ ܒܐܬܪܐ ܘܒܛܠܠܐ ܕܡܘܬܐ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܕܢܚ ܠܗܘܢ
the people that dwelled in darkness, have seen a great light; and to those who dwell in the land and shadow of death, a light has arisen
17 ܡܢ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܪܝ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܡܟܪܙܘ ܘܠܡܐܡܪ ܬܘܒܘ ܩܪܒܬ ܠܗ ܓܝܪ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
. From that time Jesus began to preach and to say: Repent; for the Realm of Heaven is close
18 ܘܟܕ ܡܗܠܟ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܝܡܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ ܚܙܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܐܚܝܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܐܬܩܪܝ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܢܕܪܐܘܤ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܕܪܡܝܢ ܡܨܝܕܬܐ ܒܝܡܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܨܝܕܐ
And as he was walking on the shore of the sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Kephas, and Andrew his brother, who were casting nets into the sea; for they were fishermen
19 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܬܘ ܒܬܪܝ ܘܐܥܒܕܟܘܢ ܕܬܗܘܘܢ ܨܝܕܐ ܕܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ
. And Jesus said to them: Follow me; and I will make you to become fishers of the sons of men
20 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܚܕܐ ܫܒܩܘ ܡܨܝܕܬܗܘܢ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ
. And they at once left their nets, and followed him
21 ܘܟܕ ܥܒܪ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܚܙܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܚܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܒܪ ܙܒܕܝ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܒܐܠܦܐ ܥܡ ܙܒܕܝ ܐܒܘܗܘܢ ܕܡܬܩܢܝܢ ܡܨܝܕܬܗܘܢ ܘܩܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ
And going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a boat with Zebedee their father, who were mending their nets. And Jesus called them
22 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܚܕܐ ܫܒܩܘ ܠܐܠܦܐ ܘܠܐܒܘܗܘܢ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ
. And they at once left the boat and their father, and followed him
23 ܘܡܬܟܪܟ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܟܠܗ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܗܘܢ ܘܡܟܪܙ ܤܒܪܬܐ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܘܡܐܤܐ ܟܠ ܟܐܒ ܘܟܘܪܗܢ ܒܥܡܐ
And Jesus would preach all over Galilee and taught in their congregations and preached the Gospel of the Realm; and he healed every disease and sickness among the people
24 ܘܐܫܬܡܥ ܛܒܗ ܒܟܠܗ ܤܘܪܝܐ ܘܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܝܫ ܒܝܫ ܥܒܝܕܝܢ ܒܟܘܪܗܢܐ ܡܫܚܠܦܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܠܝܨܝܢ ܒܬܫܢܝܩܐ ܘܕܝܘܢܐ ܘܕܒܪ ܐܓܪܐ ܘܡܫܪܝܐ ܘܐܤܝ ܐܢܘܢ
And his fame was heard in all Syria. And they brought to him all those that were very ill with various diseases, and those that were afflicted with pain, and the possessed, and epileptics and paralysed; and he healed them
25 ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܡܢ ܥܤܪܬ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܡܢ ܝܗܘܕ ܘܡܢ ܥܒܪܐ ܕܝܘܪܕܢܢ
And there followed him great crowds from Galilee, and from the Decapolis [federation], and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond the Jordan
 

Chapter 5

 1 ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܤܠܩ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܘܟܕ ܝܬܒ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
 
: And when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up a hill; and when he sat down, his disciples gathered near him
 2 ܘܦܬܚ ܦܘܡܗ ܘܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ
 
: and he began to speak, and taught them, and said
 3 ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܡܤܟܢܐ ܒܪܘܚ ܕܕܝܠܗܘܢ ܗܝ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
 
! Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the Realm of Heaven
 4 ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܐܒܝܠܐ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܢܬܒܝܐܘܢ
 
! Blessed are the mourners: for they will be comforted
 5 ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܡܟܝܟܐ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܢܐܪܬܘܢ ܠܐܪܥܐ
 
! Blessed are the humble: for they will inherit the earth
 6 ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܟܦܢܝܢ ܘܨܗܝܢ ܠܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܢܤܒܥܘܢ
 
! Blessed are they that hunger and thirst for what is right: for they will be satisfied
 7 ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܡܪܚܡܢܐ ܕܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܪܚܡܐ
 
! Blessed are the merciful: for upon them will be mercy
 8 ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܟܝܢ ܒܠܒܗܘܢ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܢܚܙܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ
 
! Blessed are the pure in their hearts: for they will behold God
 9 ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܥܒܕܝ ܫܠܡܐ ܕܒܢܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܢܬܩܪܘܢ
 
! Blessed are the peacemakers: for they will be called sons of God
10 ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܪܕܦܘ ܡܛܠ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܕܕܝܠܗܘܢ ܗܝ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
! Blessed are they that are persecuted on account of what is right: for the Realm of Heaven is theirs
11 ܛܘܒܝܟܘܢ ܐܡܬܝ ܕܡܚܤܕܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܪܕܦܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܟܠ ܡܠܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܡܛܠܬܝ ܒܕܓܠܘܬܐ
. Blessed are you, when they insult you and persecute you, and utter every false word of slander against you, because of me
12 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܚܕܘ ܘܪܘܙܘ ܕܐܓܪܟܘܢ ܤܓܝ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܪܕܦܘ ܠܢܒܝܐ ܕܡܢ ܩܕܡܝܟܘܢ
. Rejoice then, and be glad: for your reward is great in Heaven. For they too so persecuted the prophets who were before you
13 ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܠܚܗ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܐܢܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܠܚܐ ܬܦܟܗ ܒܡܢܐ ܬܬܡܠܚ ܠܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܐܙܠܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܬܫܬܕܐ ܠܒܪ ܘܬܬܕܝܫ ܡܢ ܐܢܫܐ
You are the salt of the earth! But if the salt become tasteless, with what will it be seasoned ? It is fit for nothing; but to be thrown out, and be trod upon by men
14 ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܢܘܗܪܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܕܬܛܫܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܥܠ ܛܘܪܐ ܒܢܝܐ
. You are the light of the world! It is not possible to hide a city built upon a hill
15 ܘܠܐ ܡܢܗܪܝܢ ܫܪܓܐ ܘܤܝܡܝܢ ܠܗ ܬܚܝܬ ܤܐܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܥܠ ܡܢܪܬܐ ܘܡܢܗܪ ܠܟܠ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܒܝܬܐ ܐܢܘܢ
. And they do not light a lamp and place it under a bushel; but upon a light stand, and it lights upon all that are in the house
16 ܗܟܢܐ ܢܢܗܪ ܢܘܗܪܟܘܢ ܩܕܡ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܢܚܙܘܢ ܥܒܕܝܟܘܢ ܛܒܐ ܘܢܫܒܚܘܢ ܠܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
Let your light shine before the sons of men, that they may see your good works, and may glorify your Father who is in Heaven
17 ܠܐ ܬܤܒܪܘܢ ܕܐܬܝܬ ܕܐܫܪܐ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܐܘ ܢܒܝܐ ܠܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܕܐܫܪܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܐܡܠܐ
. Do not suppose that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets: I have come not to abolish, but to fulfill
18 ܐܡܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܥܒܪܘܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܐܪܥܐ ܝܘܕ ܚܕܐ ܐܘ ܚܕ ܤܪܛܐ ܠܐ ܢܥܒܪ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܟܠ ܢܗܘܐ
For truly I say to you, that until heaven and earth will disappear, one dot or one letter will not pass from the law until all will be fulfilled
19 ܟܠ ܡܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܢܫܪܐ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܘܢܠܦ ܗܟܢܐ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܒܨܝܪܐ ܢܬܩܪܐ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܟܠ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܥܒܕ ܘܢܠܦ ܗܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܢܬܩܪܐ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
Therefore whoever will break one of these small commands and will so teach the sons of men, will be called little in the Realm of Heaven: but every one that will do and teach them, will be called great in the Realm of Heaven
20 ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܠܐ ܬܐܬܪ ܟܐܢܘܬܟܘܢ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܕܤܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܠܐ ܬܥܠܘܢ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
For I say to you, that unless your righteousness will exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter into the Realm of Heaven
21 ܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܠܩܕܡܝܐ ܠܐ ܬܩܛܘܠ ܘܟܠ ܕܢܩܛܘܠ ܡܚܝܒ ܗܘ ܠܕܝܢܐ
. You have heard that it was said to the ancients, You will not kill: and every one that kills, is condemned to judgment
22 ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܢܪܓܙ ܥܠ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܐܝܩܐ ܡܚܝܒ ܗܘ ܠܕܝܢܐ ܘܟܠ ܕܢܐܡܪ ܠܐܚܘܗܝ ܪܩܐ ܡܚܝܒ ܗܘ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܢܐܡܪ ܠܠܐ ܡܚܝܒ ܗܘ ܠܓܗܢܐ ܕܢܘܪܐ
But I say to you, That every one who provokes his brother to anger, is condemned to judgment: and every one that said to his brother, I spit on you! is condemned to the council: and every one that will say, You Coward! is condemned to hell-fire
23 ܐܢ ܗܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܡܩܪܒ ܐܢܬ ܩܘܪܒܢܟ ܥܠ ܡܕܒܚܐ ܘܬܡܢ ܬܬܕܟܪ ܕܐܚܝܕ ܥܠܝܟ ܐܚܘܟ ܐܟܬܐ ܡܕܡ
, If therefore you will bring your offering to the altar, and will there remember that your brother has any grudge against you
24 ܫܒܘܩ ܬܡܢ ܩܘܪܒܢܟ ܩܕܡ ܡܕܒܚܐ ܘܙܠ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܐܬܪܥܐ ܥܡ ܐܚܘܟ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܬܐ ܩܪܒ ܩܘܪܒܢܟ
. leave there your offering before the altar, and go first and be reconciled with your brother; and then come and present your offering
25 ܗܘܝܬ ܡܬܐܘܐ ܥܡ ܒܥܠ ܕܝܢܟ ܥܓܠ ܥܕ ܥܡܗ ܐܢܬ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܒܥܠ ܕܝܢܟ ܢܫܠܡܟ ܠܕܝܢܐ ܘܕܝܢܐ ܢܫܠܡܟ ܠܓܒܝܐ ܘܬܦܠ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ
Be at agreement with your adversary at law, forthwith, and while on the way with him; lest the adversary at law hand you over to the judge, and the Judge hand you over to the sheriff, and you are thrown into prison
26 ܘܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܕܠܐ ܬܦܘܩ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܬܬܠ ܫܡܘܢܐ ܐܚܪܝܐ
. Truly I say to you, You will not come out from there until you have paid the last coin
27 ܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܕܠܐ ܬܓܘܪ
. You have heard that it has been said, You should not commit adultery
28 ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܚܙܐ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܪܓܝܗ ܡܚܕܐ ܓܪܗ ܒܠܒܗ
. But I say to you, That whoever gazes on a woman lustfully, at once commits adultery with her in his heart
29 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܥܝܢܟ ܕܝܡܝܢܐ ܡܟܫܠܐ ܠܟ ܚܨܝܗ ܘܫܕܝܗ ܡܢܟ ܦܩܚ ܠܟ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܐܒܕ ܚܕ ܗܕܡܟ ܘܠܐ ܟܠܗ ܦܓܪܟ ܢܦܠ ܒܓܗܢܐ
If therefore your right eye makes you stumble, pluck it out, and cast it from you; because it is better for you that your one member perish, than that your whole body fall into hell
30 ܘܐܢ ܐܝܕܟ ܕܝܡܝܢܐ ܡܟܫܠܐ ܠܟ ܦܤܘܩ ܫܕܝܗ ܡܢܟ ܦܩܚ ܠܟ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܐܒܕ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܕܡܝܟ ܘܠܐ ܟܠܗ ܦܓܪܟ ܢܦܠ ܒܓܗܢܐ
And if your right hand make you stumble, cut it off, and cast it from you; because it is better for you that one of your members perish, than that your whole body fall into hell
31 ܐܬܐܡܪ ܕܡܢ ܕܫܪܐ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܢܬܠ ܠܗ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܕܘܠܠܐ
. It has been said, That if a man puts away his wife, he must give her a decree of divorce
32 ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܫܪܐ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܙܢܝܘܬܐ ܥܒܕ ܠܗ ܕܬܓܘܪ ܘܡܢ ܕܫܩܠ ܫܒܝܩܬܐ ܓܐܪ
But I say to you, That whoever divorces his wife, except for a case of illicit relations, causes her to commit adultery: and he that takes the divorced woman, commits adultery
33 ܬܘܒ ܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܠܩܕܡܝܐ ܕܠܐ ܬܕܓܠ ܒܡܘܡܬܟ ܬܫܠܡ ܕܝܢ ܠܡܪܝܐ ܡܘܡܬܟ
. Again, you have heard that it has been said to the ancients, You will not lie in your oaths; but you will complete your oaths to the Lord
34 ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܬܐܡܘܢ ܤܟ ܠܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܕܟܘܪܤܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܠܗܐ
: But I say to you, Swear not at all: not by Heaven, for it is the throne of God
35 ܘܠܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܕܟܘܒܫܐ ܗܝ ܕܬܚܝܬ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܐܦܠܐ ܒܐܘܪܝܫܠܡ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܗ ܗܝ ܕܡܠܟܐ ܪܒܐ
. and not by the earth, for it is the footstool under his feet: and likewise not by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great king
36 ܐܦܠܐ ܒܪܫܟ ܬܐܡܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܬ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܒܗ ܡܢܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܤܥܪܐ ܐܘܟܡܬܐ ܐܘ ܚܘܪܬܐ
. And do not swear by your head, for you can not make one hair on it either black or white
37 ܐܠܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܡܠܬܟܘܢ ܐܝܢ ܐܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܒܝܫܐ ܗܘ
. But let your words be, Yes, yes; or No, no; for whatever is beyond these is evil
38 ܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܕܥܝܢܐ ܚܠܦ ܥܝܢܐ ܘܫܢܐ ܚܠܦ ܫܢܐ
. You have heard that it has been said: An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth
39 ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܬܩܘܡܘܢ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܒܝܫܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܡܚܐ ܠܟ ܥܠ ܦܟܟ ܕܝܡܝܢܐ ܐܦܢܐ ܠܗ ܐܦ ܐܚܪܢܐ
But I say to you: Stand not against evil; but if a person strikes you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also
40 ܘܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܕܢܕܘܢ ܥܡܟ ܘܢܫܩܘܠ ܟܘܬܝܢܟ ܫܒܘܩ ܠܗ ܐܦ ܡܪܛܘܛܟ
. And if one wants to sue you and take away your coat, leave to him also your cloak
41 ܡܢ ܕܡܫܚܪ ܠܟ ܡܝܠܐ ܚܕ ܙܠ ܥܡܗ ܬܪܝܢ
. Whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two
42 ܡܢ ܕܫܐܠ ܠܟ ܗܒ ܠܗ ܘܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܕܢܐܙܦ ܡܢܟ ܠܐ ܬܟܠܝܘܗܝ
. Whoever demands of you, give to him: and whoever wants to borrow from you, deny him not
43 ܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܕܪܚܡ ܠܩܪܝܒܟ ܘܤܢܝ ܠܒܥܠܕܒܒܟ
. You have heard that it has been said to love your neighbor and hate your enemy
44 ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܚܒܘ ܠܒܥܠܕܒܒܝܟܘܢ ܘܒܪܟܘ ܠܡܢ ܕܠܐܛ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܥܒܕܘ ܕܫܦܝܪ ܠܡܢ ܕܤܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܨܠܘ ܥܠ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܒܪܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܩܛܝܪܐ ܘܪܕܦܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ
But I say to you: Love your enemies; and bless him that insults you; and do good to him that hates you; and pray for them that lead you in bonds, and by force persecute you
45 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܬܗܘܘܢ ܒܢܘܗܝ ܕܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܡܕܢܚ ܫܡܫܗ ܥܠ ܛܒܐ ܘܥܠ ܒܝܫܐ ܘܡܚܬ ܡܛܪܗ ܥܠ ܟܐܢܐ ܘܥܠ ܥܘܠܐ
that you may be the children of your Father that is in Heaven, who causes his sun to rise upon the good and upon the bad, and his rain descend upon the just and upon the unjust
46 ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܡܚܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܚܒܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܐܓܪܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܗܐ ܐܦ ܡܟܤܐ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ
? For, if you love them that love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do this
47 ܘܐܢ ܫܐܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܕܐܚܝܟܘܢ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܡܢܐ ܝܬܝܪ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܗܐ ܐܦ ܡܟܤܐ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ
? And if you greet in peace your brethren only, what do you that is not common? Do not even tax collectors do this
48 ܗܘܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܓܡܝܪܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܓܡܝܪ ܗܘ
. Be you therefore as perfect as your Father who is in Heaven is perfect

 

Chapter 6

 1 ܚܘܪܘ ܕܝܢ ܒܙܕܩܬܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܬܥܒܕܘܢܗ ܩܕܡ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܬܬܚܙܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܠܐ ܐܓܪܐ ܠܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
 
Be careful in your alms giving, not to parade it before the sons of men, so that you may be seen of them: otherwise, you have no reward from your Father who is in Heaven
 2 ܐܡܬܝ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܙܕܩܬܐ ܠܐ ܬܩܪܐ ܩܪܢܐ ܩܕܡܝܟ ܐܝܟ ܕܥܒܕܝܢ ܢܤܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܒܫܘܩܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܫܬܒܚܘܢ ܡܢ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܘܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܩܒܠܘ ܐܓܪܗܘܢ
 
Therefore, when you do alms you should not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may get praise from men. Truly I say to you, They have gotten their reward
 3 ܐܢܬ ܕܝܢ ܡܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܙܕܩܬܐ ܠܐ ܬܕܥ ܤܡܠܟ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܝܡܝܢܟ
 
: But you, when doing alms, let not your left hand know what your right hand does
 4 ܐܝܟ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܙܕܩܬܟ ܒܟܤܝܐ ܘܐܒܘܟ ܕܚܙܐ ܒܟܤܝܐ ܗܘ ܢܦܪܥܟ ܒܓܠܝܐ
 
. that your alms may be in secret. And your Father, who sees in secret, will reward you openly
 5 ܘܡܐ ܕܡܨܠܐ ܐܢܬ ܠܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܢܤܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܕܪܚܡܝܢ ܠܡܩܡ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܒܙܘܝܬܐ ܕܫܘܩܐ ܠܡܨܠܝܘ ܕܢܬܚܙܘܢ ܠܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܘܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܩܒܠܘ ܐܓܪܗܘܢ
 
And when you pray, you should not be like the hypocrites, who are fond of standing up in the congregations and on the corners of streets to pray, so that they may be seen by people. Truly I say to you, they have received their reward
 6 ܐܢܬ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܬܝ ܕܡܨܠܐ ܐܢܬ ܥܘܠ ܠܬܘܢܟ ܘܐܚܘܕ ܬܪܥܟ ܘܨܠܐ ܠܐܒܘܟ ܕܒܟܤܝܐ ܘܐܒܘܟ ܕܚܙܐ ܒܟܤܝܐ ܢܦܪܥܟ ܒܓܠܝܐ
But you, when you pray enter into your inner room and close the door, and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father, who sees in secret, will reward you openly
 7 ܘܡܐ ܕܡܨܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܡܦܩܩܝܢ ܐܝܟ ܚܢܦܐ ܤܒܪܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܡܡܠܠܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܫܬܡܥܝܢ
 
. And when you pray, be not chatterers like the heathen; for they expect to be heard for their many words
 8 ܠܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܕܡܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܝܕܥ ܡܢܐ ܡܬܒܥܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܥܕܠܐ ܬܫܐܠܘܢܝܗܝ
 
. Therefore, be not like them; for your Father knows what is needful for you, before you ask him
 9 ܗܟܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܨܠܘ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܒܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܢܬܩܕܫ ܫܡܟ
 
: In this manner, therefore, pray you: Our Father who is in Heaven, hallowed be your name
10 ܬܐܬܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܟ ܢܗܘܐ ܨܒܝܢܟ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܐܦ ܒܐܪܥܐ
: Your Realm come: Your will be done; as in Heaven, so on earth
11 ܗܒ ܠܢ ܠܚܡܐ ܕܤܘܢܩܢܢ ܝܘܡܢܐ
: Give us the bread of our need this day
12 ܘܫܒܘܩ ܠܢ ܚܘܒܝܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܫܒܩܢ ܠܚܝܒܝܢ
: And forgive us our offences, as we forgive those who offended us
13 ܘܠܐ ܬܥܠܢ ܠܢܤܝܘܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܦܨܢ ܡܢ ܒܝܫܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܕܝܠܟ ܗܝ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܘܚܝܠܐ ܘܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܠܥܠܡ ܥܠܡܝܢ
And bring us not into trial, but deliver us from evil: For yours is the Realm, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever: Amen
14 ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܬܫܒܩܘܢ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܤܟܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܢܫܒܘܩ ܐܦ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
. For if you forgive men their faults, your Father who is in Heaven will also forgive you
15 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܬܫܒܩܘܢ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܐܦܠܐ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܫܒܩ ܠܟܘܢ ܤܟܠܘܬܟܘܢ
. But if you will not forgive men, your Father also forgives not you your faults
16 ܐܡܬܝ ܕܝܢ ܕܨܝܡܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܬܗܘܘܢ ܟܡܝܪܐ ܐܝܟ ܢܤܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܡܚܒܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܦܪܨܘܦܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܬܚܙܘܢ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܨܝܡܝܢ ܘܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܩܒܠܘ ܐܓܪܗܘܢ
And when you fast, be not sad like the hypocrites. For they contort their expressions, that they may be seen by men to be fasting. Truly I say to you, they have gotten their reward
17 ܐܢܬ ܕܝܢ ܡܐ ܕܨܐܡ ܐܢܬ ܐܫܝܓ ܐܦܝܟ ܘܡܫܘܚ ܪܫܟ
: But, when you fast, wash your face, and anoint your head
18 ܐܝܟ ܕܠܐ ܬܬܚܙܐ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܨܐܡ ܐܢܬ ܐܠܐ ܠܐܒܘܟ ܕܒܟܤܝܐ ܘܐܒܘܟ ܕܚܙܐ ܒܟܤܝܐ ܗܘ ܢܦܪܥܟ
. that you may not be seen by men as a faster, but by your Father who is in secret: and your Father who sees in secret, will reward you
19 ܠܐ ܬܤܝܡܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܤܝܡܬܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܐܬܪ ܕܤܤܐ ܘܐܟܠܐ ܡܚܒܠܝܢ ܘܐܝܟܐ ܕܓܢܒܐ ܦܠܫܝܢ ܘܓܢܒܝܢ
. Place not your treasure on earth, where moth and rust ruin, and where thieves break in and steal
20 ܐܠܐ ܤܝܡܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܤܝܡܬܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܠܐ ܤܤܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܟܠܐ ܡܚܒܠܝܢ ܘܐܝܟܐ ܕܓܢܒܐ ܠܐ ܦܠܫܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܓܢܒܝܢ
. But place your treasure in Heaven, where no moth and no rust can ruin, and no thieves break in nor steal
21 ܐܝܟܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܝܬܝܗ ܤܝܡܬܟܘܢ ܬܡܢ ܗܘ ܐܦ ܠܒܟܘܢ
. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also
22 ܫܪܓܐ ܕܦܓܪܐ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܥܝܢܐ ܐܢ ܥܝܢܟ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܗܘܐ ܦܫܝܛܐ ܐܦ ܟܠܗ ܦܓܪܟ ܢܗܝܪ ܗܘ
. The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye will be sound, your whole body will be full of light
23 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܥܝܢܟ ܬܗܘܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܟܠܗ ܦܓܪܟ ܚܫܘܟܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܐܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܕܒܟ ܚܫܘܟܐ ܗܘ ܚܫܘܟܟ ܟܡܐ ܢܗܘܐ
! But if your eye will be evil, your whole body will be dark. If then the light that is in you be darkness, how great will be your darkness
24 ܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܬܪܝܢ ܡܪܘܢ ܠܡܦܠܚ ܐܘ ܓܝܪ ܠܚܕ ܢܤܢܐ ܘܠܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܪܚܡ ܐܘ ܠܚܕ ܢܝܩܪ ܘܠܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܫܘܛ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܠܡܦܠܚ ܘܠܡܡܘܢܐ
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will honor the one and ignore the other. You are not able to serve God and money
25 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܬܐܨܦܘܢ ܠܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܬܐܟܠܘܢ ܘܡܢܐ ܬܫܬܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܠܦܓܪܟܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܬܠܒܫܘܢ ܠܐ ܗܐ ܢܦܫܐ ܝܬܝܪܐ ܡܢ ܤܝܒܪܬܐ ܘܦܓܪܐ ܡܢ ܠܒܘܫܐ
Therefore I say to you: Be not worried about your life, what you will eat, and what you will drink; nor about your body, how you will clothe yourselves. Is not the life more important than food, and the body than clothing
26 ܚܘܪܘ ܒܦܪܚܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܕܠܐ ܙܪܥܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܚܨܕܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܚܡܠܝܢ ܒܐܘܨܪܐ ܘܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܡܬܪܤܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܗܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܝܬܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ
Look at the birds of heaven; which sow not, and reap not, and gather not into storehouses, but your Father who is in Heaven feeds them. Are not you more important than they
27 ܡܢܘ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܟܕ ܝܨܦ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܘܤܦܘ ܥܠ ܩܘܡܬܗ ܐܡܬܐ ܚܕܐ
? And who of you that will be worried, can add to his stature a measure
28 ܘܥܠ ܠܒܘܫܐ ܡܢܐ ܝܨܦܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܬܒܩܘ ܒܫܘܫܢܐ ܕܕܒܪܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܪܒܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܠܐܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܥܙܠܢ
And about clothing, why are you worried? Consider the lilies of the desert, in what manner they grow. They toil not; and they spin not
29 ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܦܠܐ ܫܠܝܡܘܢ ܒܟܠܗ ܫܘܒܚܗ ܐܬܟܤܝ ܐܝܟ ܚܕܐ ܡܢܗܝܢ
. Yet I say to you, that not even Solomon in all his glory, was clothed like one of them
30 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܥܡܝܪܐ ܕܚܩܠܐ ܕܝܘܡܢܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܘܡܚܪ ܢܦܠ ܒܬܢܘܪܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܡܠܒܫ ܠܐ ܤܓܝ ܝܬܝܪ ܠܟܘܢ ܙܥܘܪܝ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ
And if God so clothes the grass of the field, which exists today, and tomorrow falls into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, you lacking in faith
31 ܠܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܐܨܦܘܢ ܐܘ ܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܢܐܟܘܠ ܐܘ ܡܢܐ ܢܫܬܐ ܐܘ ܡܢܐ ܢܬܟܤܐ
Therefore be not worried; nor say, What will we eat, or what will we drink; or with what be clothed
32 ܟܠܗܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܗܘ ܒܥܝܢ ܠܗܝܢ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܝܕܥ ܕܐܦ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܬܒܥܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ
. For all these things the people of the world seek. And your Father, who is in Heaven, knows that all these things are required by you
33 ܒܥܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܙܕܝܩܘܬܗ ܘܟܠܗܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܬܬܘܤܦܢ ܠܟܘܢ
. But seek you first the Realm of God, and his righteousness: and all these things will be supplied to you
34 ܠܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܐܨܦܘܢ ܕܡܚܪ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܡܚܪ ܝܨܦ ܕܝܠܗ ܤܦܩ ܠܗ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܒܝܫܬܗ
. Therefore be not worried about tomorrow: for tomorrow has its own worries. Each day has enough of it's own trouble

 

Chapter 7

 1 ܠܐ ܬܕܘܢܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܬܬܕܝܢܘܢ
 
. Do not judge, and you will not be judged 
 2 ܒܕܝܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܕܝܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܬܕܝܢܘܢ ܘܒܟܝܠܬܐ ܕܡܟܝܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܬܬܟܝܠ ܠܟܘܢ
 
. For with the judgment that you judge, you will get; and the amount you measure out, so will it be measured to you
 3 ܡܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܬ ܓܠܐ ܕܒܥܝܢܗ ܕܐܚܘܟ ܘܩܪܝܬܐ ܕܒܥܝܢܟ ܠܐ ܒܚܪ ܐܢܬ
 
? And why do you observe the straw in your brother's eye, and do not notice the beam that is in your own
 4 ܐܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܠܐܚܘܟ ܫܒܘܩ ܐܦܩ ܓܠܐ ܡܢ ܥܝܢܟ ܘܗܐ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܒܥܝܢܟ
 
. How dare you say to your brother, Allow me to pick the straw from your eye; when a beam is in your own eye
 5 ܢܤܒ ܒܐܦܐ ܐܦܩ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܡܢ ܥܝܢܟ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܬܒܚܪ ܠܟ ܠܡܦܩܘ ܓܠܐ ܡܢ ܥܝܢܗ ܕܐܚܘܟ
 
. Hypocrite! Take the beam from your own eye; and then you will see clearly to take the straw out of your brother's eye
 6 ܠܐ ܬܬܠܘܢ ܩܘܕܫܐ ܠܟܠܒܐ ܘܠܐ ܬܪܡܘܢ ܡܪܓܢܝܬܟܘܢ ܩܕܡ ܚܙܝܪܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܕܘܫܘܢ ܐܢܝܢ ܒܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܢܗܦܟܘܢ ܢܒܙܥܘܢܟܘܢ
 
Give not give consecrations to dogs: and cast not your pearls before swine; lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you apart
 7 ܫܐܠܘ ܘܢܬܝܗܒ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܥܘ ܘܬܫܟܚܘܢ ܩܘܫܘ ܘܢܬܦܬܚ ܠܟܘܢ
 
. Ask, and it will be given to you: search, and you will find: knock, and it will be opened to you
 8 ܟܠ ܓܝܪ ܕܫܐܠ ܢܤܒ ܘܕܒܥܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܘܠܐܝܢܐ ܕܢܩܫ ܡܬܦܬܚ ܠܗ
 
. For the one that asks, receives: and he that seeks, finds: and to him that knocks, it will be opened
 9 ܐܘ ܡܢܘ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܢܫܐܠܝܘܗܝ ܒܪܗ ܠܚܡܐ ܠܡܐ ܟܐܦܐ ܡܘܫܛ ܠܗ
 
? For what man is there among you, of whom if his son asks for bread, will he extend to him a stone
10 ܘܐܢ ܢܘܢܐ ܢܫܐܠܝܘܗܝ ܠܡܐ ܚܘܝܐ ܡܘܫܛ ܠܗ
? Or if he ask of him a fish, will he extend to him a serpent
11 ܘܐܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܒܝܫܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܛܒܬܐ ܠܡܬܠ ܠܒܢܝܟܘܢ ܟܡܐ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܢܬܠ ܛܒܬܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܐܠܝܢ ܠܗ
If you then, who are evil, know how to give to your children what is good, how much more will your Father who is in Heaven give good things to them that ask him
12 ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܢܥܒܕܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܒܕܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܢܘ ܓܝܪ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܘܢܒܝܐ
. Treat others the way you would have them treat you: for this is the Law and the prophets
13 ܥܘܠܘ ܒܬܪܥܐ ܐܠܝܨܐ ܕܦܬܐ ܗܘ ܬܪܥܐ ܘܐܪܘܝܚܐ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܡܘܒܠܐ ܠܐܒܕܢܐ ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܙܠܝܢ ܒܗ
. Enter you in by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad the way which leads to ruin; and many are they that walk it
14 ܡܐ ܩܛܝܢ ܬܪܥܐ ܘܐܠܝܨܐ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܡܘܒܠܐ ܠܚܝܐ ܘܙܥܘܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܠܗ
! How small the gate and rough the way that leads to Life, and how few are they who find it
15 ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܡܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܓܠܐ ܕܐܬܝܢ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܒܠܒܘܫܐ ܕܐܡܪܐ ܡܢ ܠܓܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܕܐܒܐ ܚܛܘܦܐ
. Be heedful of false prophets; who come to you in the garb of sheep, but underneath are wolves on the prowl
16 ܡܢ ܦܐܪܝܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܬܕܥܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܡܐ ܠܩܛܝܢ ܡܢ ܟܘܒܐ ܥܢܒܐ ܐܘ ܡܢ ܩܘܪܛܒܐ ܬܐܢܐ
? And from their deeds you will know them. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes; or figs from thistles
17 ܗܟܢܐ ܟܠ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܛܒܐ ܦܐܪܐ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܝܫܐ ܦܐܪܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܥܒܕ
. Every sound tree bears good fruits; but a rotten tree bears bad fruits
18 ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܛܒܐ ܦܐܪܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܘܠܐ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܦܐܪܐ ܛܒܐ ܠܡܥܒܕ
. A good tree cannot bear bad fruits; nor can a rotten tree bear good fruits
19 ܟܠ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܥܒܕ ܦܐܪܐ ܛܒܐ ܡܬܦܤܩ ܘܒܢܘܪܐ ܢܦܠ
. Every tree that bears not good fruits, is cut down and thrown into the fire
20 ܡܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܦܐܪܝܗܘܢ ܬܕܥܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ
. You will know them by their fruit
21 ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܟܠ ܕܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܡܪܝ ܡܪܝ ܥܐܠ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܥܒܕ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܒܝ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
. None who cry out to me, My Lord, my Lord, will enter into the Realm of Heaven but only he that does the will of my Father in Heaven
22 ܤܓܝܐܐ ܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܝ ܒܗܘ ܝܘܡܐ ܡܪܝ ܡܪܝ ܠܐ ܒܫܡܟ ܐܬܢܒܝܢ ܘܒܫܡܟ ܫܐܕܐ ܐܦܩܢ ܘܒܫܡܟ ܚܝܠܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܥܒܕܢ
Many will plead to me on that day, My Lord, my Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name expelled demons ? and in your name worked many miracles
23 ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܘܕܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܡܬܘܡ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܬܟܘܢ ܐܪܚܩܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢܝ ܦܠܚܝ ܥܘܠܐ
. And then will I declare to them; I never knew you. Be gone from me, you evildoers
24 ܟܠ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܫܡܥ ܡܠܝ ܗܠܝܢ ܘܥܒܕ ܠܗܝܢ ܢܬܕܡܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܚܟܝܡܐ ܗܘ ܕܒܢܐ ܒܝܬܗ ܥܠ ܫܘܥܐ
. Every one therefore that hears these my sermons, and acts on them, will be like a sensible man who built his house upon rock
25 ܘܢܚܬ ܡܛܪܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܢܗܪܘܬܐ ܘܢܫܒ ܪܘܚܐ ܘܐܬܛܪܝܘ ܒܗ ܒܒܝܬܐ ܗܘ ܘܠܐ ܢܦܠ ܫܬܐܤܘܗܝ ܓܝܪ ܥܠ ܫܘܥܐ ܤܝܡܢ ܗܘܝ
And the rain fell, and floods rose, and the winds blew; and hurled upon that house; and it fell not, for it had been set on rock
26 ܘܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܫܡܥ ܡܠܝ ܗܠܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܥܒܕ ܠܗܝܢ ܢܬܕܡܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܤܟܠܐ ܕܒܢܐ ܒܝܬܗ ܥܠ ܚܠܐ
. And every one that hears these my sermons, and acts not, will be like a foolish man that built his house on sand
27 ܘܢܚܬ ܡܛܪܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܢܗܪܘܬܐ ܘܢܫܒ ܪܘܚܐ ܘܐܬܛܪܝܘ ܒܒܝܬܐ ܗܘ ܘܢܦܠ ܘܗܘܬ ܡܦܘܠܬܗ ܪܒܐ
. And the rain fell, and floods rose, and winds blew; and they struck that house, and it fell; and it was total ruin
28 ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܫܠܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܬܗܝܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܢܫܐ ܥܠ ܝܘܠܦܢܗ
: And so it was, when Jesus had finished these sermons, the crowds were moved by his teaching
29 ܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܟ ܡܫܠܛܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܤܦܪܝܗܘܢ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ
. for he taught them as one having authority; and not as their scribes and Pharisees
