Chapter 22

 1 ܘܥܢܐ ܬܘܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܡܬܠܐ ܘܐܡܪ
 
: And Jesus addressed them again in parables, and said
 2 ܐܬܕܡܝܬ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܡܫܬܘܬܐ ܠܒܪܗ
 
. The Realm of Heaven may be compared to a king, who gave a wedding banquet for his son
 3 ܘܫܕܪ ܠܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܕܢܩܪܘܢ ܠܡܙܡܢܐ ܠܡܫܬܘܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܨܒܘ ܠܡܐܬܐ
 
. And he sent his servants to call those who had been invited to the banquet: and they would not come
 4 ܬܘܒ ܫܕܪ ܥܒܕܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܡܙܡܢܐ ܕܗܐ ܫܪܘܬܝ ܡܛܝܒܐ ܘܬܘܪܝ ܘܡܦܛܡܝ ܩܛܝܠܝܢ ܘܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܡܛܝܒ ܬܘ ܠܡܫܬܘܬܐ
And again he sent some more servants, and said: Tell those invited, Behold, my banquet is all prepared, my oxen and my fatten stock are slain, everything is ready; come to the wedding
 5 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܤܘ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܐܝܬ ܕܠܩܪܝܬܗ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܠܬܐܓܘܪܬܗ
 
; But they did not show interest, and one went off to his farm, and another to his business
 6 ܫܪܟܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܚܕܘ ܠܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܘܨܥܪܘ ܘܩܛܠܘ
 
. and the rest seized his servants, and abused them, and killed them
 7 ܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܕܝܢ ܡܠܟܐ ܪܓܙ ܘܫܕܪ ܚܝܠܘܬܗ ܐܘܒܕ ܠܩܛܘܠܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܠܡܕܝܢܬܗܘܢ ܐܘܩܕ
 
. And when the king heard of it, he was furious; and he sent his troops, and destroyed those murderers, and burnt their town
 8 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܡܫܬܘܬܐ ܡܛܝܒܐ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܙܡܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐ ܫܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ
 
, Then said he to his servants, The banquet is ready, but as those who were invited proved to be unfit
 9 ܙܠܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܠܡܦܩܢܐ ܕܐܘܪܚܬܐ ܘܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܩܪܘ ܠܡܫܬܘܬܐ
 
. Go therefore to the byroads; and invite everyone you find to the banquet
10 ܘܢܦܩܘ ܥܒܕܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܠܐܘܪܚܬܐ ܘܟܢܫܘ ܟܠ ܕܐܫܟܚܘ ܒܝܫܐ ܘܛܒܐ ܘܐܬܡܠܝ ܒܝܬ ܡܫܬܘܬܐ ܤܡܝܟܐ
And so those servants went out on to the roads, and rounded up everyone they met, good and bad alike; and the banquet hall was filled with guests
11 ܘܥܠ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܤܡܝܟܐ ܘܚܙܐ ܬܡܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܠܐ ܠܒܝܫ ܠܒܘܫܐ ܕܡܫܬܘܬܐ
. And the king came in to see the guests he noticed a man there who was not wearing a wedding garment
12 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܚܒܪܝ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܥܠܬ ܠܟܐ ܟܕ ܢܚܬܐ ܕܡܫܬܘܬܐ ܠܝܬ ܠܟ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܫܬܬܩ
. And he said to him, My friend, how did you get in here without a wedding robe ? But the man was silent
13 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܡܠܟܐ ܠܡܫܡܫܢܐ ܐܤܘܪܘ ܐܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܘܐܦܩܘܗܝ ܠܚܫܘܟܐ ܒܪܝܐ ܬܡܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܟܝܐ ܘܚܘܪܩ ܫܢܐ
Then said the king to the attendants: Bind him hand and foot and throw him out into the dark, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth
14 ܤܓܝܐܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܩܪܝܐ ܘܙܥܘܪܝܢ ܓܒܝܐ
. For many are called, but few are chosen
15 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܙܠܘ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܢܤܒܘ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܐܝܟܢܐ ܢܨܘܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܒܡܠܬܐ
. Then the Pharisees went away to plot between them how they might trap him in what he said
16 ܘܫܕܪܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܥܡ ܕܒܝܬ ܗܪܘܕܤ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܝܕܥܝܢܢ ܕܫܪܝܪ ܐܢܬ ܘܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܩܘܫܬܐ ܡܠܦ ܐܢܬ ܘܠܐ ܫܩܝܠ ܐܢܬ ܨܦܬܐ ܕܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܢܤܒ ܐܢܬ ܒܐܦܐ ܕܐܢܫܐ
And they sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians, and said to him: Teacher, we know that you are honest, and teach the way of God sincerely, regardless of a man's rank, for you favor none over another
17 ܐܡܪ ܠܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܠܟ ܫܠܝܛ ܠܡܬܠ ܟܤܦ ܪܫܐ ܠܩܤܪ ܐܘ ܠܐ
? Tell us, therefore, what is your opinion: is it lawful to pay a tribute to Caesar, or not
18 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܒܝܫܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢܐ ܡܢܤܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܢܤܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ
? But Jesus was aware their malice, and said: Why do you set this trap for me, you hypocrites
19 ܚܘܐܘܢܝ ܕܝܢܪܐ ܕܟܤܦ ܪܫܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܕܝܢܪܐ
. Show me the money you pay the tax with. And they handed him a denarius
20 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܡܢܘ ܨܠܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܟܬܒܐ
? And Jesus said to them: Whose head is this, and whose name
21 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܩܤܪ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܒܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܩܤܪ ܠܩܤܪ ܘܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ
. They say, Caesar's. He said to them: Then give back to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and to God what belongs to God
22 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܐܬܕܡܪܘ ܘܫܒܩܘܗܝ ܘܐܙܠܘ
. And when they heard his reply they were taken aback, and they went off and left him
23 ܒܗܘ ܝܘܡܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܙܕܘܩܝܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܝܬ ܚܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܫܐܠܘܗܝ
, That same day some Sadducees - who deny there is a resurrection of the dead, came to question him
24 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܢ ܕܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܢܡܘܬ ܟܕ ܠܝܬ ܠܗ ܒܢܝܐ ܢܤܒ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܘܢܩܝܡ ܙܪܥܐ ܠܐܚܘܗܝ
. and said to him: Teacher ; Moses said to us, that if a man dies childless, his brother is to marry his widow to raise children for his brother
25 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܘܬܢ ܐܚܐ ܫܒܥܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܫܩܠ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܘܡܝܬ ܘܕܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܒܢܝܐ ܫܒܩܗ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܠܐܚܘܗܝ
. Now we had a case involving seven brothers. The first married, and died without children, leaving his wife to his brother
26 ܗܟܘܬ ܐܦ ܗܘ ܕܬܪܝܢ ܘܐܦ ܗܘ ܕܬܠܬܐ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܒܥܬܝܗܘܢ
. In similar manner so with the second, and the third, and so on to the seventh
27 ܒܚܪܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܡܝܬܬ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܬܐ
. And last of all, the woman herself died, too
28 ܒܩܝܡܬܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܠܐܝܢܐ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܫܒܥܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܢܤܒܘܗ
? Now at the resurrection to which of those seven will she be wife ? For they all had married her
29 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܛܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܟܬܒܐ ܘܠܐ ܚܝܠܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
. Jesus answered, and said to them: You are wrong, for you do not know the scriptures, nor the power of God
30 ܒܩܝܡܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܝܬܐ ܠܐ ܢܤܒܝܢ ܢܫܐ ܐܦܠܐ ܢܫܐ ܗܘܝܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ
. For at the resurrection men and women do not marry, nor are given in marriage, they are like the angels of God in Heaven
31 ܥܠ ܩܝܡܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܝܬܐ ܠܐ ܩܪܝܬܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܡܪ
: But as to the resurrection of the dead, have you never read what God himself said to you
32 ܕܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܗܗ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܐܠܗܗ ܕܐܝܤܚܩ ܐܠܗܗ ܕܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܡܝܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܚܝܐ
. I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob ? He is the God of the Living, not of the dead
33 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܟܢܫܐ ܡܬܬܡܗܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܝܘܠܦܢܗ
. And the crowd who listened were awestruck by his teachings
34 ܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܕܫܬܩ ܠܙܕܘܩܝܐ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܐܟܚܕܐ
; And when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they got together
35 ܘܫܐܠܗ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܝܕܥ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܟܕ ܡܢܤܐ ܠܗ
: and one of them who was a lawyer, to disconcert him, questioned
36 ܡܠܦܢܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܪܒ ܒܢܡܘܤܐ
? Teacher, which is the great commandment of the law
37 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܕܬܪܚܡ ܠܡܪܝܐ ܐܠܗܟ ܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܠܒܟ ܘܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܢܦܫܟ ܘܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܚܝܠܟ ܘܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܪܥܝܢܟ
. Jesus said to him: You must love the Lord your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might, and with all your mind
38 ܗܢܘ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܘܩܕܡܝܐ
. This is the great and first commandment
39 ܘܕܬܪܝܢ ܕܕܡܐ ܠܗ ܕܬܪܚܡ ܠܩܪܝܒܟ ܐܝܟ ܢܦܫܟ
. And the second which resembles it, is, You must love your neighbor as yourself
40 ܒܗܠܝܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܦܘܩܕܢܝܢ ܬܠܝܐ ܐܘܪܝܬܐ ܘܢܒܝܐ
. On these two commandments hang the whole law and the prophets
41 ܟܕ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܫܐܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ
, And while the Pharisees were gathered, Jesus put a question to them
42 ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܠ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܪ ܡܢܘ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܒܪ ܕܘܝܕ
. and said: What do you say about the Messiah? Whose son is he ? They said to him; The Son of David
43 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܘܝܕ ܒܪܘܚ ܩܪܐ ܠܗ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܓܝܪ
: He said to them: How is it, then, that David, moved by the Spirit, calls him Lord? where he said
44 ܕܐܡܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܠܡܪܝ ܬܒ ܠܟ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܝ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܤܝܡ ܒܥܠܕܒܒܝܟ ܬܚܝܬ ܪܓܠܝܟ
. The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, and I will put your enemies under your feet
45 ܐܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܘܝܕ ܩܪܐ ܠܗ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܒܪܗ ܗܘ
? If David can call him Lord, how then is he his son
46 ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܫܟܚ ܕܢܬܠ ܠܗ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܡܪܚ ܬܘܒ ܡܢ ܗܘ ܝܘܡܐ ܠܡܫܐܠܘܬܗ
. And no one was capable of giving him an answer. And from that day, no one dared to question him again
 

Chapter 23

 1 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܠܠ ܥܡ ܟܢܫܐ ܘܥܡ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
 
, Then Jesus spoke with the crowd and with his disciples
 2 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܠ ܟܘܪܤܝܐ ܕܡܘܫܐ ܝܬܒܘ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ
 
. and said to them: The scribes and Pharisees occupy the chair of Moses
 3 ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܬܛܪܘܢ ܛܪܘ ܘܥܒܕܘ ܐܝܟ ܥܒܕܝܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܬܥܒܕܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܘܠܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ
 
. Therefore you must do whatever they tell you to observe. But do not be led by what they do, since they do not practice what they preach
 4 ܘܐܤܪܝܢ ܡܘܒܠܐ ܝܩܝܪܬܐ ܘܤܝܡܝܢ ܥܠ ܟܬܦܬܐ ܕܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܨܒܥܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܕܢܩܪܒܘܢ ܠܗܝܢ
 
? They tie up heavy burdens, and lay them on men's shoulders; but will they lift a finger to move them
 5 ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܒܕܝܗܘܢ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܕܢܬܚܙܘܢ ܠܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܦܬܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܬܦܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܡܘܪܟܝܢ ܬܟܠܬܐ ܕܡܪܛܘܛܝܗܘܢ
 
. And everything they do is done to attract attention: like wearing broader ritual amulets, and longer tassels
 6 ܘܪܚܡܝܢ ܪܫ ܤܡܟܐ ܒܚܫܡܝܬܐ ܘܪܫ ܡܘܬܒܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ
 
, And they are fond of the places of honor at banquets and the front seats in the congregations
 7 ܘܫܠܡܐ ܒܫܘܩܐ ܘܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܡܬܩܪܝܢ ܡܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܪܒܝ
 
. and the formal greetings in the market arenas, and having people address them as Master
 8 ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܬܬܩܪܘܢ ܪܒܝ ܚܕ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܪܒܟܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܐܚܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ
 
. But you must not allow yourselves to be called Master; since you have only one master, and you are all brothers
 9 ܘܐܒܐ ܠܐ ܬܩܪܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܚܕ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
 
. And you must call no one on earth your father; since you have only one Father, and he is in Heaven
10 ܘܠܐ ܬܬܩܪܘܢ ܡܕܒܪܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܚܕ ܗܘ ܡܕܒܪܢܟܘܢ ܡܫܝܚܐ
. And you must not be called teachers; since you have only one Teacher, the Messiah
11 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܪܒ ܒܟܘܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܫܡܫܢܐ
. And the greatest one among you must be your servant
12 ܡܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܪܝܡ ܢܦܫܗ ܢܬܡܟܟ ܘܡܢ ܕܢܡܟ ܢܦܫܗ ܢܬܬܪܝܡ
. For anyone who exalts himself will be humbled: and anyone will humbles himself will be exalted
13 ܘܝ ܠܟܘܢ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܢܤܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܕܐܟܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܬܐ ܕܐܪܡܠܬܐ ܒܥܠܬܐ ܕܡܘܪܟܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܨܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܬܩܒܠܘܢ ܕܝܢܐ ܝܬܝܪܐ
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: for you devour the houses of widows, under the disguise of protracting your prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation
14 ܘܝ ܠܟܘܢ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܢܤܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܕܐܚܝܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܩܕܡ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܠܐ ܥܐܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܐܠܝܢ ܠܐ ܫܒܩܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܥܠ
Woe to you. scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: for you shut away the Realm of Heaven from men's faces; neither going in yourselves nor allowing others to go in who want to
15 ܘܝ ܠܟܘܢ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܢܤܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܕܡܬܟܪܟܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܡܐ ܘܝܒܫܐ ܕܬܥܒܕܘܢ ܚܕ ܓܝܘܪܐ ܘܡܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ ܒܪܗ ܕܓܗܢܐ ܐܥܦܐ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: you who travel over sea and land to make one pagan convert; and when he is won over, you make him twice as fit for hell as you are
16 ܘܝ ܠܟܘܢ ܢܓܘܕܐ ܤܡܝܐ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܕܝܡܐ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܕܡ ܡܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܡܐ ܒܕܗܒܐ ܕܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܚܐܒ
Woe to you, blind guides: You who say, If anyone swears by the temple, it is nothing; but if anyone swears by the gold that is in the temple, he is bound
17 ܤܟܠܐ ܘܤܡܝܐ ܡܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܪܒ ܕܗܒܐ ܐܘ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܕܗܘ ܡܩܕܫ ܠܗ ܠܕܗܒܐ
? Fools and blind! For which is worth more, the gold, or the temple that makes the gold sacred
18 ܘܡܢ ܕܝܡܐ ܒܡܕܒܚܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܕܡ ܡܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܡܐ ܒܩܘܪܒܢܐ ܕܠܥܠ ܡܢܗ ܚܐܒ
. And, if anyone swears by the altar, it is nothing: but if anyone swears by the offering upon it, he is bound
19 ܤܟܠܐ ܘܥܘܝܪܐ ܡܢܐ ܪܒ ܩܘܪܒܢܐ ܐܘ ܡܕܒܚܐ ܕܡܩܕܫ ܠܩܘܪܒܢܐ
? You blind fools! For which is worth more, the offering, or the altar that makes the offering sacred
20 ܡܢ ܕܝܡܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܒܡܕܒܚܐ ܝܡܐ ܒܗ ܘܒܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܥܠ ܡܢܗ
. Therefore, he who swears by the altar, swears by that, and by everything that is on it
21 ܘܡܢ ܕܝܡܐ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܝܡܐ ܒܗ ܘܒܡܢ ܕܥܡܪ ܒܗ
. And he who swears by the temple, is swearing by that, and by the One who dwells in it
22 ܘܡܢ ܕܝܡܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܝܡܐ ܒܟܘܪܤܝܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܡܢ ܕܝܬܒ ܠܥܠ ܡܢܗ
. And he who swears by Heaven, is swearing by throne of God, and by the One seated there
23 ܘܝ ܠܟܘܢ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܢܤܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܕܡܥܤܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܢܢܥܐ ܘܫܒܬܐ ܘܟܡܘܢܐ ܘܫܒܩܬܘܢ ܝܩܝܪܬܗ ܕܢܡܘܤܐ ܕܝܢܐ ܘܚܢܢܐ ܘܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܬܥܒܕܘܢ ܘܗܠܝܢ ܠܐ ܬܫܒܩܘܢ
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: for you pay your tithe of mint, and anise, and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law - judgment, and mercy, and good faith: these you should have practiced, without neglecting the others
24 ܢܓܘܕܐ ܤܡܝܐ ܕܡܨܠܠܝܢ ܒܩܐ ܘܒܠܥܝܢ ܓܡܠܐ
. You blind guides, you who strain out gnats, and swallow down camels
25 ܘܝ ܠܟܘܢ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܢܤܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܕܡܕܟܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܪܗ ܕܟܤܐ ܘܕܙܒܘܪܐ ܠܓܘ ܕܝܢ ܡܠܝܢ ܚܛܘܦܝܐ ܘܥܘܠܐ
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: for you clean the outside of the cup and the dish, while leave the inside full of extortion and intemperance
26 ܦܪܝܫܐ ܥܘܝܪܐ ܕܟܘ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܓܘܗ ܕܟܤܐ ܘܕܙܒܘܪܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܐܦ ܒܪܗܘܢ ܕܟܐ
. You blind Pharisees, first clean the inside of the cup and dish, so that the outside may be clean, too
27 ܘܝ ܠܟܘܢ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܢܤܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܕܕܡܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܩܒܪܐ ܡܟܠܫܐ ܕܡܢ ܠܒܪ ܡܬܚܙܝܢ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܡܢ ܠܓܘ ܕܝܢ ܡܠܝܢ ܓܪܡܐ ܕܡܝܬܐ ܘܟܠܗ ܛܢܦܘܬܐ
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: for you are like whitewashed tombs which look handsome from the outside, but inside are full of bones of the dead and every kind of corruption
28 ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܠܒܪ ܡܬܚܙܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܙܕܝܩܐ ܘܡܢ ܠܓܘ ܡܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܘܠܐ ܘܡܤܒ ܒܐܦܐ
. So you as well, look to people as good honest men on the outside; but inside, you are full of unfairness and hypocrisy
29 ܘܝ ܠܟܘܢ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܢܤܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܕܒܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܩܒܪܐ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܘܡܨܒܬܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܝܬ ܩܒܘܪܐ ܕܙܕܝܩܐ
; Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: for you build the tombs of the prophets and you decorate the tombs of Holy men
30 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܠܘ ܗܘܝܢ ܒܝܘܡܝ ܐܒܗܝܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܘܬܦܐ ܒܕܡܐ ܕܢܒܝܐ
. and you say: If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not joined with them in shedding the blood of the prophets
31 ܡܕܝܢ ܡܤܗܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܕܒܢܝܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܕܩܛܠܘ ܠܢܒܝܐ
. Thus you give evidence against yourselves, of that you are the children of those who killed the prophets
32 ܘܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܠܘ ܡܫܘܚܬܐ ܕܐܒܗܝܟܘܢ
. And as for you, then, finish off the work of your fathers
33 ܚܘܘܬܐ ܝܠܕܐ ܕܐܟܕܢܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܬܥܪܩܘܢ ܡܢ ܕܝܢܐ ܕܓܗܢܐ
? Serpents, you brood of vipers ! How can you escape being condemned to hell
34 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܗܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܫܕܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܘܚܟܝܡܐ ܘܤܦܪܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܩܛܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܙܩܦܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܢܓܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܟܘܢ ܘܬܪܕܦܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܐ ܠܡܕܝܢܐ
For this reason, I send to you prophets, and wise men, and scribes; some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will scourge in your congregations, and hunt them down from town to town
35 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܟܠܗ ܕܡܐ ܕܙܕܝܩܐ ܕܐܬܐܫܕ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܡܢ ܕܡܗ ܕܗܒܝܠ ܙܕܝܩܐ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܕܡܗ ܕܙܟܪܝܐ ܒܪ ܒܪܟܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܩܛܠܬܘܢ ܒܝܢܝ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܠܡܕܒܚܐ
and so you will draw down on yourselves the blood of every Holy man that has been shed on the earth, from the blood of Abel the Holy to the blood of Zachariah, son of Barachiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar
36 ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܢܐܬܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܥܠ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܗܕܐ
. Truly I say to you, that all of this will come back on this generation
37 ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܩܛܠܬ ܢܒܝܐ ܘܪܓܡܬ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܠܝܚܝܢ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܡܐ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܨܒܝܬ ܕܐܟܢܫ ܒܢܝܟܝ ܐܝܟ ܕܟܢܫܐ ܬܪܢܓܘܠܬܐ ܦܪܘܓܝܗ ܬܚܝܬ ܓܦܝܗ ܘܠܐ ܨܒܝܬܘܢ
Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kills the prophets, and stone those who are sent to you: how often I longed to gather your children, as a hen gathers her young under her wings, and you refused
38 ܗܐ ܡܫܬܒܩ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܝܬܟܘܢ ܚܪܒܐ
! Look, your house will be left desolate
39 ܐܡܪܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܐ ܬܚܙܘܢܢܝ ܡܢ ܗܫܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܒܪܝܟ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܐ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ
. For I promise, you shall not see me anymore, until you say: Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord
 

Chapter 24

 1 ܘܢܦܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܠܡܐܙܠ ܘܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܡܚܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܒܢܝܢܗ ܕܗܝܟܠܐ
 
. And Jesus left the temple, and as he was going away his disciples came up to point out to him the construction of the temple
 2 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܗܐ ܚܙܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܬܫܬܒܩ ܗܪܟܐ ܟܐܦ ܥܠ ܟܐܦ ܕܠܐ ܬܤܬܬܪ
 
And he said to them: You see all these? Truly I say to you, Not a single stone here will be left here on top another stone, it will all be torn down
 3 ܘܟܕ ܝܬܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܠ ܛܘܪܐ ܕܙܝܬܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܒܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܠܗ ܐܡܪ ܠܢ ܐܡܬܝ ܗܠܝܢ ܢܗܘܝܢ ܘܡܢܐ ܗܝ ܐܬܐ ܕܡܐܬܝܬܟ ܘܕܫܘܠܡܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ
 
And as Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives, his disciples drew near and asked him privately: Tell us, when is this going to happen; and what will be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the world
 4 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܢܛܥܝܟܘܢ
 
. Jesus answered them: Take care that no one deceives you
 5 ܤܓܝܐܐ ܓܝܪ ܢܐܬܘܢ ܒܫܡܝ ܘܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܢܛܥܘܢ
 
. For many will come using my name saying, I am the Messiah: and they will deceive many
 6 ܥܬܝܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܡܫܡܥ ܩܐܪܤܐ ܘܫܡܥܐ ܕܩܪܒܐ ܚܙܘ ܠܐ ܬܬܕܘܕܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܟܠܗܝܢ ܢܗܘܝܢ ܐܠܐ ܠܐ ܥܕܟܝܠ ܫܘܠܡܐ
 
And you will hear of wars, and the rumors of wars. Do not be alarmed, for all this is something that must happen, but the end will not be yet
 7 ܢܩܘܡ ܓܝܪ ܥܡܐ ܥܠ ܥܡܐ ܘܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܥܠ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܘܢܗܘܘܢ ܟܦܢܐ ܘܡܘܬܢܐ ܘܙܘܥܐ ܒܕܘܟܐ ܕܘܟܐ
 
For nation will fight against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there will be famines, and plagues, and earthquakes here and there
 8 ܗܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܪܫܐ ܐܢܝܢ ܕܚܒܠܐ
 
. But all this is only the beginning of sorrows
 9 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܫܠܡܘܢܟܘܢ ܠܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܘܢܩܛܠܘܢܟܘܢ ܘܬܗܘܘܢ ܤܢܝܐܝܢ ܡܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܡܛܠ ܫܡܝ
 
And they will deliver to you tribulation, and will kill you: and you will be hated by all the nations on account of my name
10 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܬܟܫܠܘܢ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܢܤܢܘܢ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ ܘܢܫܠܡܘܢ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ
. Then many will fall away: and they will hate one another, and will betray one another
11 ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܓܠܐ ܢܩܘܡܘܢ ܘܢܛܥܘܢ ܠܤܓܝܐܐ
. And many false prophets will rise up; and they will deceive many
12 ܘܡܛܠ ܤܓܝܐܘܬ ܥܘܠܐ ܢܦܘܓ ܚܘܒܐ ܕܤܓܝܐܐ
. And on account of the increase of evil, the love of many will grow cold
13 ܡܢ ܕܢܤܝܒܪ ܕܝܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܚܪܬܐ ܗܘ ܢܚܐ
. But he that will have patience to the end, will have Life
14 ܘܬܬܟܪܙ ܗܕܐ ܤܒܪܬܐ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܥܠܡܐ ܠܤܗܕܘܬܐ ܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܐܬܐ ܫܘܠܡܐ
. And this Gospel of the Realm will be preached in all the world, for a testimony to all nations: and then will the end come
15 ܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܚܙܝܬܘܢ ܐܬܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܕܚܘܪܒܐ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܒܕܢܝܐܝܠ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܩܝܡܐ ܒܕܘܟܬܐ ܩܕܝܫܬܐ ܗܘ ܕܩܪܐ ܢܤܬܟܠ
And when you see the abominable sign of desolation, of which Daniel the prophet spoke, set up in the holy place; then let the reader understand
16 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܝܗܘܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܢܥܪܩܘܢ ܠܛܘܪܐ
, and let those who are in Judaea flee to the mountain
17 ܘܗܘ ܕܒܐܓܪܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܢܚܘܬ ܠܡܤܒ ܕܒܒܝܬܗ
, and let him on the roof not come down to collect what is in his house
18 ܘܐܝܢܐ ܕܒܚܩܠܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܢܬܗܦܟ ܠܒܤܬܪܗ ܠܡܤܒ ܠܒܫܗ
. and let him in the field not turn back to fetch his clothing
19 ܘܝ ܕܝܢ ܠܒܛܢܬܐ ܘܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܝܢܩܢ ܒܗܢܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ
. But woe to those with child, and to them that are nursing, in those days
20 ܨܠܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܥܪܘܩܝܟܘܢ ܒܤܬܘܐ ܘܠܐ ܒܫܒܬܐ
. And pray that your flight be not in winter, or on the Sabbath
21 ܢܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܪܫܝܬܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܫܐ ܘܠܐ ܢܗܘܐ
For there will then be great distress such as, until now, since the world began, there never has been, and will not ever be again
22 ܘܐܠܘ ܠܐ ܐܬܟܪܝܘ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܠܐ ܚܝܐ ܗܘܐ ܟܠ ܒܤܪ ܡܛܠ ܓܒܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܢܬܟܪܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ
. And if those days had not been cut short, nobody would have survived. But, for the sake of the chosen, those days will be shortened
23 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܢܐܡܪ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܐ ܗܪܟܐ ܗܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܘ ܗܪܟܐ ܠܐ ܬܗܝܡܢܘܢ
. Then, if any one says to you, the Messiah is here, or He is there; do no believe it
24 ܢܩܘܡܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܓܠܐ ܘܢܒܝܐ ܕܟܕܒܘܬܐ ܘܢܬܠܘܢ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܪܘܪܒܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܛܥܘܢ ܐܢ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܐܦ ܠܓܒܝܐ
For false messiahs will arise, and dishonest prophets; who will produce great signs, so as to mislead, if that were possible, even the chosen
25 ܗܐ ܩܕܡܬ ܐܡܪܬ ܠܟܘܢ
. Behold, I have told you beforehand
26 ܐܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܐ ܒܚܘܪܒܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܬܦܩܘܢ ܐܘ ܕܗܐ ܒܬܘܢܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܬܗܝܡܢܘܢ
. If therefore they say to you, Behold, he is in the desert; do not go out: or, Behold, he is in a hiding place; do not believe it
27 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܪܩܐ ܢܦܩ ܡܢ ܡܕܢܚܐ ܘܡܬܚܙܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܡܥܪܒܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܡܐܬܝܬܗ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
. As the sunshine comes out of the east, and is seen even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man
28 ܐܝܟܐ ܕܐܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܦܓܪܐ ܬܡܢ ܢܬܟܢܫܘܢ ܢܫܪܐ
. And wherever the carcass is, there the vultures will gather
29 ܡܚܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܬܪ ܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܕܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܫܡܫܐ ܢܚܫܟ ܘܤܗܪܐ ܠܐ ܢܚܘܐ ܢܘܗܪܗ ܘܟܘܟܒܐ ܢܦܠܘܢ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܚܝܠܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܢܬܬܙܝܥܘܢ
And immediately after the sorrow of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not shine it's light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of Heaven will be shakened
30 ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܬܚܙܐ ܢܝܫܗ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܪܩܕܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܘܢܚܙܘܢ ܠܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܥܠ ܥܢܢܝ ܫܡܝܐ ܥܡ ܚܝܠܐ ܘܫܘܒܚܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ
And then the sign of the Son of man will appear in Heaven: and then will all the peoples of the earth mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of Heaven, with power and great glory
31 ܘܢܫܕܪ ܡܠܐܟܘܗܝ ܥܡ ܫܝܦܘܪܐ ܪܒܐ ܘܢܟܢܫܘܢ ܠܓܒܝܐ ܕܝܠܗ ܡܢ ܐܪܒܥܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܡܢ ܪܫܗܘܢ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܪܫܗܘܢ
And he will send his angels with a great trumpet to gather together his chosen from the four winds, from one end of Heaven to the other
32 ܡܢ ܬܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܠܦܘ ܦܠܐܬܐ ܕܡܚܕܐ ܕܤܘܟܝܗ ܪܟܢ ܘܦܪܥܝܢ ܛܪܦܝܗ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܡܛܐ ܩܝܛܐ
And now you take as example the fig-tree. As soon as its twigs become tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near
33 ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܐ ܕܚܙܝܬܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܕܥܘ ܕܡܛܬ ܠܗ ܠܬܪܥܐ
. So you, too, when you see all these things, you will know that it is near, as at the door
34 ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܬܥܒܪ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܢܗܘܝܢ
. Truly I say to you, That this generation will not pass away, till all this takes place
35 ܫܡܝܐ ܘܐܪܥܐ ܢܥܒܪܘܢ ܘܡܠܝ ܠܐ ܢܥܒܪܢ
. Heaven and earth will pass away; but my words will never pass away
36 ܥܠ ܝܘܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܗܘ ܘܥܠ ܫܥܬܐ ܗܝ ܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܦܠܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܒܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ
. But as for that day and hour, nobody knows, not even the angels of Heaven, but the Father alone
37 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܘܡܝ ܢܘܚ ܗܟܢܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܡܐܬܝܬܗ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
. And it was in the days of Noah, so will it be when the the Son of Man comes
38 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܩܕܡ ܛܘܦܢܐ ܐܟܠܝܢ ܘܫܬܝܢ ܘܢܤܒܝܢ ܢܫܐ ܘܝܗܒܝܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܥܠ ܢܘܚ ܠܟܘܝܠܐ
, For as they were before the flood, eating and drinking, taking wives and taking husbands, right up to the day that Noah went into the ark
39 ܘܠܐ ܝܕܥܘ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܛܘܦܢܐ ܘܫܩܠ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܡܐܬܝܬܗ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
. and they did not know until the flood came and took them all away; so willbe the coming of the Son of Man
40 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܒܩܪܝܬܐ ܚܕ ܢܬܕܒܪ ܘܚܕ ܢܫܬܒܩ
. Then of two men in the fields, one is taken, and the other left
41 ܘܬܪܬܝܢ ܢܗܘܝܢ ܛܚܢܢ ܒܪܚܝܐ ܚܕܐ ܡܬܕܒܪܐ ܘܚܕܐ ܡܫܬܒܩܐ
. Of two women who grind at the millstone; one is taken, and the other left
42 ܐܬܬܥܝܪܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܐܝܕܐ ܫܥܬܐ ܐܬܐ ܡܪܟܘܢ
. So, stay awake, because you know not at what time your Lord is coming
43 ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܘ ܕܐܠܘ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܡܪܐ ܒܝܬܐ ܒܐܝܕܐ ܡܛܪܬܐ ܐܬܐ ܓܢܒܐ ܡܬܬܥܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܘܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܬܦܠܫ ܒܝܬܗ
But be sure of this, that if the master of the house had known at what time the thief would come, he would have stayed awake, and would not have allowed his house to be broken into
44 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܛܝܒܝܢ ܕܒܫܥܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܤܒܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܢܐܬܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
. Therefore, you, too must be ready; because at a time you do not expect, the Son of Man will come
45 ܡܢܘ ܟܝ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܥܒܕܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܘܚܟܝܡܐ ܕܐܩܝܡܗ ܡܪܗ ܥܠ ܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ ܕܢܬܠ ܠܗܘܢ ܤܝܒܪܬܐ ܒܙܒܢܗ
? What sort of servant, then, is faithful and wise enough for the master to place him over his household, to give them their food at the right time
46 ܛܘܒܘܗܝ ܠܥܒܕܐ ܗܘ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܡܪܗ ܢܫܟܚܝܘܗܝ ܕܥܒܕ ܗܟܢܐ
. Happy is that servant, if his master's arrival will find him doing so
47 ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܢܩܝܡܝܘܗܝ ܥܠ ܟܠ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ
. Truly I say to you, He will place him over everything he owns
48 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܢܐܡܪ ܥܒܕܐ ܗܘ ܒܝܫܐ ܒܠܒܗ ܕܡܪܝ ܡܘܚܪ ܠܡܐܬܐ
; But if that servant, being wicked in his heart, My master will be delayed in coming back
49 ܘܢܫܪܐ ܠܡܡܚܐ ܟܢܘܬܗ ܘܢܗܘܐ ܐܟܠ ܘܫܬܐ ܥܡ ܪܘܝܐ
; and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with drunkards
50
ܢܐܬܐ ܡܪܗ ܕܥܒܕܐ ܗܘ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܠܐ ܤܒܪ ܘܒܫܥܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ
, the master of that servant will come back on a day he does not expect, and at a time he does not know
51 ܘܢܦܠܓܝܘܗܝ ܘܢܤܝܡ ܡܢܬܗ ܥܡ ܢܤܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܬܡܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܟܝܐ ܘܚܘܪܩ ܫܢܐ
. and will separate from him his share to give among the hypocrites; there will be wailing and grinding of teeth

Chapter 25

 1 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܬܕܡܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܠܥܤܪ ܒܬܘܠܢ ܗܢܝܢ ܕܢܤܒ ܠܡܦܕܝܗܝܢ ܘܢܦܩ ܠܐܘܪܥ ܚܬܢܐ ܘܟܠܬܐ
 
. Then the Realm of Heaven may be likened to ten bridesmaids, who took their lamps and went out to welcome the groom and bride
 2 ܚܡܫ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܗܝܢ ܚܟܝܡܢ ܗܘܝ ܘܚܡܫ ܤܟܠܢ
 
. And five of them were sensible, and five were foolish
 3 ܘܗܢܝܢ ܤܟܠܬܐ ܢܤܒ ܠܡܦܕܝܗܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܢܤܒ ܥܡܗܝܢ ܡܫܚܐ
 
. And the foolish ones took their lamps, but took no oil with them
 4 ܗܢܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܚܟܝܡܬܐ ܢܤܒ ܡܫܚܐ ܒܡܐܢܐ ܥܡ ܠܡܦܕܝܗܝܢ
 
. But the sensible ones took flasks of oil as well as their lamps
 5 ܟܕ ܐܘܚܪ ܕܝܢ ܚܬܢܐ ܢܡ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܘܕܡܟ
 
. And as the bridegroom was late, they all grew drowsy and fell asleep
 6 ܘܒܦܠܓܗ ܕܠܠܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܩܥܬܐ ܗܐ ܚܬܢܐ ܐܬܐ ܦܘܩܘ ܠܐܘܪܥܗ
 
. And at midnight there was shouted: Behold, the bridegroom is here, go out to meet him
 7 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܡ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܒܬܘܠܬܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܘܬܩܢ ܠܡܦܕܝܗܝܢ
 
. Then all those bridesmaids woke up and trimmed their lamps
 8 ܐܡܪܢ ܕܝܢ ܗܢܝܢ ܤܟܠܬܐ ܠܚܟܝܡܬܐ ܗܒܝܢ ܠܢ ܡܢ ܡܫܚܟܝܢ ܕܗܐ ܕܥܟܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܦܕܝܢ
 
. And the foolish ones said to the sensible ones; Give us some of your oil; for our lamps have gone out
 9 ܥܢܝ ܗܠܝܢ ܚܟܝܡܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܢ ܠܡܐ ܠܐ ܢܤܦܩ ܠܢ ܘܠܟܝܢ ܐܠܐ ܙܠܝܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܙܒܢܝܢ ܘܙܒܢܝܢ ܠܟܝܢ
 
The sensible ones replied: There may not be enough for us and for you: you had better go to those that sell it, and buy some for yourselves
10 ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠ ܠܡܙܒܢ ܐܬܐ ܚܬܢܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܛܝܒܢ ܗܘܝ ܥܠ ܥܡܗ ܠܒܝܬ ܚܠܘܠܐ ܘܐܬܬܚܕ ܬܪܥܐ
. And while they went off to buy, the bridegroom arrived, and those that were ready, went with him into the wedding hall, and the door was closed
11 ܒܚܪܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܝ ܐܦ ܗܢܝܢ ܒܬܘܠܬܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܢ ܡܪܢ ܡܪܢ ܦܬܚ ܠܢ
. And later the other maidens arrived back, and said: Lord, Lord, open the door for us
12 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܝܢ
. But he answered them, Truly I say to you, I do not know you
13 ܐܬܬܥܝܪܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܗܘ ܘܠܐ ܠܫܥܬܐ
. So stay awake, therefore,  because you do not know either the day nor the hour
14 ܐܝܟ ܓܒܪܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܚܙܩ ܩܪܐ ܠܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܫܠܡ ܠܗܘܢ ܩܢܝܢܗ
; For it is like a man on his way abroad who summoned his servants and entrusted his property to them
15 ܐܝܬ ܕܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܚܡܫ ܟܟܪܝܢ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܚܕܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܐܝܟ ܚܝܠܗ ܘܚܙܩ ܡܚܕܐ
. to one he gave five talents; to another, two; and to another, one: each in proportion to his ability: and then he set off
16 ܐܙܠ ܕܝܢ ܗܘ ܕܢܤܒ ܚܡܫ ܟܟܪܝܢ ܐܬܬܓܪ ܒܗܝܢ ܘܝܬܪ ܚܡܫ ܐܚܪܢܝܢ
. Then he that received five talents went and traded with them and gained five more
17 ܘܗܟܘܬ ܐܦ ܗܘ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܐܬܬܓܪ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܐܚܪܢܝܢ
. And in the same way: the one of two talents made two more
18 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܤܒ ܚܕܐ ܐܙܠ ܚܦܪ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܘܛܫܝ ܟܤܦܐ ܕܡܪܗ
. But he that received one went off and dug hole in the ground, and hid his master's money
19 ܒܬܪ ܕܝܢ ܙܒܢܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܐܬܐ ܡܪܗܘܢ ܕܥܒܕܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܢܤܒ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܚܘܫܒܢܐ
. And after a long time, the lord of those servants came back, and went thru his accounts with them
20 ܘܩܪܒ ܗܘ ܕܢܤܒ ܗܘܐ ܚܡܫ ܟܟܪܝܢ ܘܩܪܒ ܚܡܫ ܐܚܪܢܝܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܚܡܫ ܟܟܪܝܢ ܝܗܒܬ ܠܝ ܗܐ ܚܡܫ ܐܚܪܢܝܢ ܐܬܬܓܪܬ ܥܠܝܗܝܢ
And he who had received the five talents came forward bringing five others; and said, Master, you gave me five talents; here are five more that I made for you
21 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܗ ܐܝܘ ܥܒܕܐ ܛܒܐ ܘܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܥܠ ܩܠܝܠ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܗܘܝܬ ܥܠ ܤܓܝ ܐܩܝܡܟ ܥܘܠ ܠܚܕܘܬܗ ܕܡܪܟ
His master said to him: Well done! good and faithful servant: you have shown you can be faithful with small things; I will trust you with greater: come and join in your master's happiness
22 ܘܩܪܒ ܗܘ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܟܟܪܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܟܟܪܝܢ ܝܗܒܬ ܠܝ ܗܐ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܐܚܪܢܝܢ ܐܬܬܓܪܬ ܥܠܝܗܝܢ
. And next the one of the two talents came forward, and said: Master, you gave me two talents; here are two more that I made for you
23 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܗ ܐܝܘ ܥܒܕܐ ܛܒܐ ܘܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܥܠ ܩܠܝܠ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܗܘܝܬ ܥܠ ܤܓܝ ܐܩܝܡܟ ܥܘܠ ܠܚܕܘܬܗ ܕܡܪܟ
His master said to him: Well done! good and faithful servant: you have shown you can be faithful with small things; I will trust you with greater: come and join in your master's happiness
24 ܩܪܒ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܗܘ ܕܢܤܒ ܚܕܐ ܟܟܪܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܝܬ ܠܟ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܐܢܬ ܩܫܝܐ ܘܚܨܕ ܐܢܬ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܠܐ ܙܪܥܬ ܘܡܟܢܫ ܐܢܬ ܡܢ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܠܐ ܒܕܪܬ
And last the one that received the one talent came forward and said: Master, I had heard you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sowed, and gathering where you have not scattered
25 ܘܕܚܠܬ ܘܐܙܠܬ ܛܫܝܬܗ ܟܟܪܟ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܗܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܟ ܕܝܠܟ
. and I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the earth. Behold, you have what is yours
26 ܥܢܐ ܡܪܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܥܒܕܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܘܚܒܢܢܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܝܬ ܕܚܨܕ ܐܢܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܠܐ ܙܪܥܬ ܘܡܟܢܫ ܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܠܐ ܒܕܪܬ
His master answered, and said to him: Wicked and slothful servant ! You knew me, that I reap where I have not sowed, and gather where I have not scattered
27 ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܕܬܪܡܐ ܟܤܦܝ ܥܠ ܦܬܘܪܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܐܢܐ ܘܬܒܥ ܗܘܝܬ ܕܝܠܝ ܥܡ ܪܒܝܬܗ
. You should have put my money on deposit that I might have come back and recovered my property with interest
28 ܤܒܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܢܗ ܟܟܪܐ ܘܗܒܘܗ ܠܗܘ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܥܤܪ ܟܟܪܝܢ
. Take the talent from him and give it to the one that now has ten talents
29 ܠܡܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܢܬܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܘܢܬܬܘܤܦ ܠܗ ܘܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܝܬ ܠܗ ܘܐܦ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܢܫܬܩܠ ܡܢܗ
. For to everyone who has, will be given, and he will have more than enough; but from the man that has not, even what he has will be taken away
30 ܘܠܥܒܕܐ ܒܛܝܠܐ ܐܦܩܘܗܝ ܠܚܫܘܟܐ ܒܪܝܐ ܬܡܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܟܝܐ ܘܚܘܪܩ ܫܢܐ
. And throw the good-for-nothing servant out into the dark: where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth
31 ܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܒܫܘܒܚܗ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܡܠܐܟܘܗܝ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܥܡܗ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܬܒ ܥܠ ܬܪܢܘܤ ܕܫܘܒܚܗ
. And when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and with him all his holy angels, then he will take his seat on the throne of glory
32 ܘܢܬܟܢܫܘܢ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܘܢܦܪܫ ܐܢܘܢ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܚܕ ܐܝܟ ܪܥܝܐ ܕܡܦܪܫ ܥܪܒܐ ܡܢ ܓܕܝܐ
. And before him will be gathered all nations; and he will separate men from one from another, as a shepherd separates sheep from the goats
33 ܘܢܩܝܡ ܥܪܒܐ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܗ ܘܓܕܝܐ ܡܢ ܤܡܠܗ
. And he will place the sheep on his right hand, and the goats on his left
34 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܐܡܪ ܡܠܟܐ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܗ ܬܘ ܒܪܝܟܘܗܝ ܕܐܒܝ ܝܪܬܘ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܥܬܝܕܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܬܪܡܝܬܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ
Then will the king say to those on his right hand: Come, you whom are blessed by my Father; inherit the Realm that was prepared for you since the foundation of the world
35 ܟܦܢܬ ܓܝܪ ܘܝܗܒܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܠܡܐܟܠ ܘܨܗܝܬ ܘܐܫܩܝܬܘܢܢܝ ܐܟܤܢܝܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܟܢܫܬܘܢܢܝ
; For I was hungry, and you gave me food; I was thirsty, and you gave me drink; I was a stranger, and you made me welcome
36 ܥܪܛܠܝܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܟܤܝܬܘܢܢܝ ܟܪܝܗ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܤܥܪܬܘܢܢܝ ܘܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܐܬܝܬܘܢ ܠܘܬܝ
. I was naked, and you clothed me; I was sick, and you visited me; in prison, and you came to see me
37 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܗ ܗܢܘܢ ܙܕܝܩܐ ܡܪܢ ܐܡܬܝ ܚܙܝܢܟ ܕܟܦܢ ܐܢܬ ܘܬܪܤܝܢܟ ܐܘ ܕܨܗܐ ܐܢܬ ܘܐܫܩܝܢܟ
? Then will the righteous say to him: Master, when did we see you hungry, and fed you? or thirsty, and gave you drink
38 ܘܐܡܬܝ ܚܙܝܢܟ ܕܐܟܤܢܝܐ ܐܢܬ ܘܟܢܫܢܟ ܐܘ ܕܥܪܛܠܝ ܐܢܬ ܘܟܤܝܢܟ
? And when saw we you as a stranger, and made you welcome? or naked, and clothed you
39 ܘܐܡܬܝ ܚܙܝܢܟ ܟܪܝܗܐ ܐܘ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܠܘܬܟ
? And when saw we you sick, or in prison, and came to see you
40 ܘܥܢܐ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܡܐ ܕܥܒܕܬܘܢ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܚܝ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܠܝ ܗܘ ܥܒܕܬܘܢ
And the king will answer, and say to them: Truly I say to you, That in so far as you did so to one of the least of my brothers, you did so to me
41 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܐܡܪ ܐܦ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܤܡܠܗ ܙܠܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢܝ ܠܝܛܐ ܠܢܘܪܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܗܝ ܕܡܛܝܒܐ ܠܐܟܠܩܪܨܐ ܘܠܡܠܐܟܘܗܝ
, Then will he say also to them on his left hand: Go away from me, you with your curse upon you, into eternal fire prepared for the Deceiver and his angels
42 ܟܦܢܬ ܓܝܪ ܘܠܐ ܝܗܒܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܠܡܐܟܠ ܘܨܗܝܬ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܩܝܬܘܢܢܝ
; For I was hungry, and you gave me no food; and I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink
43 ܘܐܟܤܢܝܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܠܐ ܟܢܫܬܘܢܢܝ ܘܥܪܛܠܝܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܠܐ ܟܤܝܬܘܢܢܝ ܘܟܪܝܗܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܠܐ ܤܥܪܬܘܢܢܝ
and I was a stranger, and you made me not welcome; and I was naked, and you did not clothed me; and I was sick and in prison, and you did not visit me
44 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܥܢܘܢ ܐܦ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܡܪܢ ܐܡܬܝ ܚܙܝܢܟ ܟܦܢܐ ܐܘ ܨܗܝܐ ܐܘ ܐܟܤܢܝܐ ܐܘ ܥܪܛܠܝܐ ܐܘ ܟܪܝܗܐ ܐܘ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܫܡܫܢܟ
? Then it will be their turn to ask: Master, when saw we you hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not come to your help
45 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܥܢܐ ܘܢܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܡܐ ܕܠܐ ܥܒܕܬܘܢ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܠܝ ܥܒܕܬܘܢ
Then will he answer: Truly I say to you, That in so far as you neglected to do so to one of the the least one of these, you neglected to do so to me
46 ܘܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܠܬܫܢܝܩܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܘܙܕܝܩܐ ܠܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
. And they will go away to eternal torment, and the virtuous into Eternal Life
 

Chapter 26

 1 ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܫܠܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
 
: And at that time when Jesus had finished all these sermons, he said to his disciples
 2 ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܒܬܪ ܬܪܝܢ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܗܘܐ ܦܨܚܐ ܘܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܡܫܬܠܡ ܕܢܙܕܩܦ
 
. You know that in two day's time it will be Passover; and that the Son of Man is to be handed over to be crucified
 3 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܤܦܪܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܥܡܐ ܠܕܪܬܗ ܕܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܩܝܦܐ
 
. Then assembled the high priests and the scribes and the elders of the people, in the palace of the high priest, who name was Caiaphas
 4 ܘܐܬܡܠܟܘ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܒܢܟܠܐ ܢܐܚܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܢܩܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ
 
. And they plotted against Jesus, that they might arrest him by some fraud, and kill him
 5 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐ ܒܥܕܥܕܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܫܓܘܫܝܐ ܒܥܡܐ
 
. But they said: Not during the festival, for there might be a riot among the people
 6 ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܒܝܬ ܥܢܝܐ ܒܒܝܬܗ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܓܪܒܐ
 
, And when Jesus was at Bethany, in the house of Simon the leperous
 7 ܩܪܒܬ ܠܗ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܥܠܝܗ ܫܛܝܦܬܐ ܕܡܫܚܐ ܕܒܤܡܐ ܤܓܝ ܕܡܝܐ ܘܐܫܦܥܬܗ ܥܠ ܪܫܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܟܕ ܤܡܝܟ
 
. there came to him a woman having a flask of expensive aromatic ointment, and she poured it on the head of Jesus as he was sitting
 8 ܚܙܘ ܕܝܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܬܒܐܫ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܡܢܐ ܐܒܕܢܐ ܗܢܐ
 
? And when his disciples saw it they were upset, and said: Why such extravagance
 9 ܡܫܟܚ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܙܕܒܢ ܗܢܐ ܒܤܓܝ ܘܢܬܝܗܒ ܠܡܤܟܢܐ
 
. For this ointment might have been sold for a good price, and that have been given to the poor
10 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܡܠܐܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ ܠܐܢܬܬܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܥܒܕܬ ܠܘܬܝ
. But Jesus became aware of this, and said to them: Why do you criticize the woman ? She has done a good deed for me
11 ܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܓܝܪ ܡܤܟܢܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܠܝ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ
. For the poor you have always with you; but you will not always have me with you
12 ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܪܡܝܬ ܒܤܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܥܠ ܓܘܫܡܝ ܐܝܟ ܕܠܡܩܒܪܢܝ ܥܒܕܬ
. And by this act of her pouring the ointment on my body, she has contributed toward my burial preparation
13 ܘܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܝܟܐ ܕܬܬܟܪܙ ܤܒܪܬܝ ܗܕܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܥܠܡܐ ܢܬܡܠܠ ܐܦ ܡܕܡ ܕܥܒܕܬ ܗܕܐ ܠܕܘܟܪܢܗ
. Truly I say to you, That wherever my Gospel will be preached throughout the world, what she did will be spoken of as her memorial
14 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܙܠ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܬܪܥܤܪ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܤܟܪܝܘܛܐ ܠܘܬ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ
, Then one of the twelve, named Judas Iscariot, went off to the high priests
15 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܬܠ ܠܝ ܘܐܢܐ ܡܫܠܡ ܐܢܐ ܠܗ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܩܝܡܘ ܠܗ ܬܠܬܝܢ ܕܟܤܦܐ
. and said to them: What will you give me, if I hand him over to you ? And they promised him thirty pieces of silver
16 ܘܡܢ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܦܠܥܐ ܕܢܫܠܡܝܘܗܝ
. And from that time he sought an opportunity to betray him
17 ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܕܦܛܝܪܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܐܝܟܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܕܢܛܝܒ ܠܟ ܕܬܠܥܤ ܦܨܚܐ
? And on the first day of unleavened bread, the disciples came to Jesus, and said to him: Where do you want for us to prepare for you to eat the Passover
18 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܠܘ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܦܠܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܪܒܢ ܐܡܪ ܙܒܢܝ ܡܛܐ ܠܗ ܠܘܬܟ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܦܨܚܐ ܥܡ ܬܠܡܝܕܝ
. And he said to them: Go into the city, to a certain man, and say to him: Our Master said, My time is near: it is with you that I will keep the Passover with my disciples
19 ܘܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܥܒܕܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܦܩܕ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܛܝܒܘ ܦܨܚܐ
. And his disciples did what Jesus told them, and prepared the Passover
20 ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܪܡܫܐ ܤܡܝܟ ܗܘܐ ܥܡ ܬܪܥܤܪ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
. And when evening came, he at table with his twelve disciples
21 ܘܟܕ ܠܥܤܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܚܕ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܡܫܠܡ ܠܝ
. And as they were eating, he said: Truly I say to you, That one of you is about to betray me
22 ܘܟܪܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܛܒ ܘܫܪܝܘ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܚܕ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܠܡܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܪܝ
? And it saddened them much. And they each started to ask him; Is it I, my Lord
23 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢ ܕܨܒܥ ܐܝܕܗ ܥܡܝ ܒܠܓܬܐ ܗܘ ܢܫܠܡܢܝ
. And he answered and said: Someone who dips his hand with me in the dish, he will betray me
24 ܘܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܐܙܠ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܘܝ ܠܗ ܕܝܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܗܘ ܕܒܐܝܕܗ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܡܫܬܠܡ ܦܩܚ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܗܘ ܐܠܘ ܠܐ ܐܬܝܠܕ
And the Son of Man goes to his fate, as is written of him: but woe to that man, by whom the Son of Man is betrayed. It would have been better for that man if he had not been born
25 ܥܢܐ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܡܫܠܡܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܠܡܐ ܐܢܐ ܗܘ ܪܒܝ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢܬ ܐܡܪܬ
. Judas the betrayer answered and said: Teacher, is it I ? Jesus said to him: You have said it
26 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܠܥܤܝܢ ܫܩܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܚܡܐ ܘܒܪܟ ܘܩܨܐ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܤܒܘ ܐܟܘܠܘ ܗܢܘ ܦܓܪܝ
And as they were eating, Jesus took some bread, blessed it, and broke it; and gave it to his disciples, and said: Take this, eat; this is my body
27 ܘܫܩܠ ܟܤܐ ܘܐܘܕܝ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܤܒܘ ܐܫܬܘ ܡܢܗ ܟܠܟܘܢ
. And he took a cup, and offered thanks and gave it to them, saying: Take this, drink of this, all of you
28 ܗܢܘ ܕܡܝ ܕܕܝܬܩܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܕܚܠܦ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܬܐܫܕ ܠܫܘܒܩܢܐ ܕܚܛܗܐ
. This is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed on behalf of the many, for the forgiveness of sins
29 ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܐܫܬܐ ܡܢ ܗܫܐ ܡܢ ܗܢܐ ܝܠܕܐ ܕܓܦܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܒܗ ܐܫܬܝܘܗܝ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܚܕܬܐ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܒܝ
But I say to you, that from now on I shall not drink of this fruit of the vine, until the day when I drink it new with you in the Realm of God
30 ܘܫܒܚܘ ܘܢܦܩܘ ܠܛܘܪ ܙܝܬܐ
. And after they sang psalms, they left for the Mount of Olives
31 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܬܬܟܫܠܘܢ ܒܝ ܒܗܢܐ ܠܠܝܐ ܟܬܝܒ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܡܚܐ ܠܪܥܝܐ ܘܢܬܒܕܪܘܢ ܥܪܒܐ ܕܥܢܗ
. Then said Jesus to them: You will all lose faith in me this night; for it is written, I shall strike the shepherd, and the sheep of his flock will be scattered
32 ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܕܩܐܡ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܩܕܡ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ
. But after my resurrection, I shall go before you to Galilee
33 ܥܢܐ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܦܢ ܟܠܢܫ ܢܬܟܫܠ ܒܟ ܐܢܐ ܡܬܘܡ ܠܐ ܐܬܟܫܠ ܒܟ
. At this, Kephas replied: Though all men should lose faith in you, I will never lose faith in you
34 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܕܒܗܢܐ ܠܠܝܐ ܩܕܡ ܕܢܩܪܐ ܬܪܢܓܠܐ ܬܠܬ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܬܟܦܘܪ ܒܝ
. Jesus said to him: Truly I say to you, That this night, before the cock crows, you will disown me three times
35 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܟܐܦܐ ܐܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܝ ܠܡܡܬ ܥܡܟ ܠܐ ܐܟܦܘܪ ܒܟ ܘܗܟܘܬ ܐܦ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܐܡܪܘ
. Kephas said to him: Even if I have to die with you, I would not disown you: and all the disciples said the same
36 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܬܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܕܘܟܬܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܓܕܤܡܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܬܒܘ ܗܪܟܐ ܥܕ ܐܙܠ ܐܨܠܐ
. Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane: and he said to his disciples, Stay here, while I go to pray
37 ܘܕܒܪ ܠܟܐܦܐ ܘܠܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܙܒܕܝ ܘܫܪܝ ܠܡܬܟܡܪܘ ܘܠܡܬܥܩܘ
. And he took Kephas and the two sons of Zebedee, and he started to be despondent and full of sorrow
38 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܪܝܐ ܗܝ ܠܗ ܠܢܦܫܝ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܡܘܬܐ ܩܘܘ ܠܝ ܗܪܟܐ ܘܫܗܪܘ ܥܡܝ
. And he said to them: My soul is sorrowful to the point of death. Wait here; and keep awake with me
39 ܘܦܪܩ ܩܠܝܠ ܘܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܐܦܘܗܝ ܘܡܨܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܒܝ ܐܢ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܢܥܒܪܢܝ ܟܤܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܪܡ ܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܢܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܢܬ
And going on a little, he fell to his face, and prayed, and said: My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass me by. Yet let it be as you, not I, would have it
40 ܘܐܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܫܟܚ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܕܡܟܝܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܟܐܦܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܬܘܢ ܚܕܐ ܫܥܐ ܕܬܫܗܪܘܢ ܥܡܝ
? And he came back to his disciples, and found them sleeping: and he said to Kephas: So you cannot stay awake with me for one hour
41 ܐܬܬܥܝܪܘ ܘܨܠܘ ܕܠܐ ܬܥܠܘܢ ܠܢܤܝܘܢܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܡܛܝܒܐ ܦܓܪܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܪܝܗ
. Wake up, and pray you not be put to the test. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak
42 ܬܘܒ ܐܙܠ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܨܠܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܒܝ ܐܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܗܢܐ ܟܤܐ ܕܢܥܒܪ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܐܫܬܝܬܗ ܢܗܘܐ ܨܒܝܢܟ
. Again, a second time, he went away and prayed: My Father, if this cup cannot pass by without my drinking it, your will be done
43 ܘܐܬܐ ܬܘܒ ܐܫܟܚ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܕܡܟܝܢ ܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܝܩܝܪܢ ܗܘܝ
. And he came back again and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy
44 ܘܫܒܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܐܙܠ ܬܘܒ ܨܠܝ ܕܬܠܬ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܘܠܗ ܠܡܠܬܐ ܐܡܪ
. And he left them, and went again and prayed the third time, repeating the same words
45 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܡܟܘ ܡܟܝܠ ܘܐܬܬܢܝܚܘ ܗܐ ܡܛܬ ܫܥܬܐ ܘܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܡܫܬܠܡ ܒܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܕܚܛܝܐ
Then he came back to his disciples, and said to them: You can sleep on now, and take rest. Now the hour has come when the Son of Man is to be betrayed into the hands of sinners
46 ܩܘܡܘ ܢܐܙܠ ܗܐ ܡܛܐ ܗܘ ܕܡܫܠܡ ܠܝ
. Get up, let us go. Behold, he that betrays me is coming
47 ܘܥܕ ܗܘ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܐ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܡܫܠܡܢܐ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܬܪܥܤܪܬܐ ܐܬܐ ܘܟܢܫܐ ܥܡܗ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܥܡ ܤܦܤܪܐ ܘܚܘܛܪܐ ܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܥܡܐ
And while he was still speaking, Judas, one of the twelve, appeared, and a large crowd with him, with swords and clubs, sent by the high priests and elders of the people
48 ܘܝܗܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܬܐ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܡܫܠܡܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘ ܕܢܫܩ ܐܢܐ ܗܘܝܘ ܠܗ ܐܚܘܕܘ
. And Judas the betrayer had arranged for them a sign, saying: The one whom I embrace will be he: Take hold of him
49 ܘܡܚܕܐ ܩܪܒ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܫܠܡ ܪܒܝ ܘܢܫܩܗ
. And he went straight up to Jesus, and said: Greetings, Teacher; and embraced him
50 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܥܠ ܗܝ ܕܐܬܝܬ ܚܒܪܝ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܬܩܪܒܘ ܘܐܪܡܝܘ ܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܚܕܘܗܝ
. And Jesus said to him: My friend, do what you have come for. Then they came forward, and laid hold of Jesus, and took him
51 ܘܗܐ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܥܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܘܫܛ ܐܝܕܗ ܘܫܡܛ ܤܦܤܪܐ ܘܡܚܝܗܝ ܠܥܒܕܗ ܕܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܫܩܠܗ ܐܕܢܗ
. And one of those with Jesus grasped his sword, and struck at a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear
52 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܗܦܟ ܤܦܤܪܐ ܠܕܘܟܬܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܢܤܒܘ ܤܝܦܐ ܒܤܝܦܐ ܢܡܘܬܘܢ
. Then Jesus said to him: Put the sword away; for all that live by the sword, will die by sword
53 ܐܘ ܤܒܪ ܐܢܬ ܕܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܒܥܐ ܡܢ ܐܒܝ ܘܢܩܝܡ ܠܝ ܗܫܐ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܬܪܬܥܤܪܐ ܠܓܝܘܢܝܢ ܕܡܠܐܟܐ
? Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father who would promptly send more than twelve legions of angels to my defense
54 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܬܡܠܘܢ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܕܢܗܘܐ
? But then how would the scriptures be fulfilled, that say this is the way it must be
55 ܒܗܝ ܫܥܬܐ ܐܡܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܥܠ ܓܝܤܐ ܢܦܩܬܘܢ ܒܤܦܤܪܐ ܘܒܚܘܛܪܐ ܕܬܐܚܕܘܢܢܝ ܟܠܝܘܡ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܝܬܒ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܡܠܦ ܘܠܐ ܐܚܕܬܘܢܢܝ
At that time Jesus said to the crowd: Have you come as if against a brigand, with swords and clubs, to capture me ? I sat teaching in the temple day after day with you, and you never laid hands me
56 ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܗܘܬ ܕܢܬܡܠܘܢ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܫܒܩܘܗܝ ܘܥܪܩܘ
And all this now has happened to fulfill the writings of the prophets. Then all the disciples deserted him and ran away
57 ܘܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܚܕܘܗܝ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܐܘܒܠܘܗܝ ܠܘܬ ܩܝܦܐ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܤܦܪܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ
. And they who arrested Jesus led him off to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and elders were convened
58 ܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܐܙܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܬܪܗ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܩܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܕܪܬܗ ܕܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܥܠ ܝܬܒ ܠܓܘ ܥܡ ܕܚܫܐ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܚܪܬܐ
And Simon Kephas followed him from a distance as far as the high priest's courtyard, and going inside, sat down with the guards in there to see the outcome
59 ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܟܠܗ ܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܤܗܕܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܡܝܬܘܢܝܗܝ
; And the high priests and the elders and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for evidence against Jesus so they might put him to death
60 ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܘܐܬܘ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܤܗܕܐ ܕܫܘܩܪܐ ܐܚܪܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܬܪܝܢ
, and they did not find any, despite many false witnesses that came, until eventually, two stepped forward
61 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܕܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܫܪܐ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܐܒܢܝܘܗܝ
. and said: This man said, I can do away with the sanctuary of God, and in three days rebuild it
62 ܘܩܡ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܡܦܢܐ ܐܢܬ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܡܢܐ ܡܤܗܕܝܢ ܥܠܝܟ ܗܠܝܢ
? And the high priest got up and said to him: Have you no answer to that ? What is this evidence leveled against you
63 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܫܬܝܩ ܗܘܐ ܘܥܢܐ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܘܡܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܒܐܠܗܐ ܚܝܐ ܕܬܐܡܪ ܠܢ ܐܢ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And Jesus was silent. And the high priest answered, and said to him: I put you on oath by the living God, that you tell us whether you are the Messiah, the Son of God
64 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢܬ ܐܡܪܬ ܐܡܪܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܗܫܐ ܬܚܙܘܢܝܗܝ ܠܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܕܝܬܒ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܐ ܕܚܝܠܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܥܠ ܥܢܢܝ ܫܡܝܐ
Jesus said to him: It is you who say it. And I tell you, That here onward you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming upon the clouds of Heaven
65 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܨܪܝ ܡܐܢܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܐ ܓܕܦ ܡܢܐ ܡܟܝܠ ܡܬܒܥܝܢ ܠܢ ܤܗܕܐ ܗܐ ܗܫܐ ܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܓܘܕܦܗ
At this the high priest tore open his robes, and said: Now, he has blasphemed! Why should we seek further witnesses ? Behold, you have now heard his blasphemy
66 ܡܢܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܢܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܚܝܒ ܗܘ ܡܘܬܐ
. What is your verdict ? They answered and said: He deserves death
67 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܪܩܘ ܒܐܦܘܗܝ ܘܡܩܦܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
, Then they spit in his face, and hit him, and others struck him
68 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܬܢܒܐ ܠܢ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܢܘ ܗܘ ܕܡܚܟ
? and said to him: Be the Prophet for us, Messiah, who struck you
69 ܟܐܦܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܪ ܒܕܪܬܐ ܘܩܪܒܬ ܠܘܬܗ ܐܡܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܠܗ ܐܦ ܐܢܬ ܥܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܗܘܝܬ ܢܨܪܝܐ
And Kephas was sitting outside in the courtyard, when a servant girl came over to him, and said: You too were with Jesus the Nazarene
70 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܟܦܪ ܩܕܡ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܐ ܐܡܪܐ ܐܢܬܝ
. But he denied it in front of all them, and said: I do not know what youare talking about
71 ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩ ܠܤܦܐ ܚܙܬܗ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܬܡܢ ܗܘܐ ܐܦ ܗܢܐ ܥܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܢܨܪܝܐ
And as he went out to the gateway another servant saw him, and said to them: This man was also there with Jesus the Nazarene
72 ܘܬܘܒ ܟܦܪ ܒܡܘܡܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܗ ܠܓܒܪܐ
. And again he denied it, swearing: I do not know that man
73 ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܩܠܝܠ ܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܟܐܦܐ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܐܦ ܐܢܬ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܢܬ ܐܦ ܡܡܠܠܟ ܓܝܪ ܡܘܕܥ ܠܟ
And a little while later, some bystanders came up and said to Kephas: You too are certainly one of them; even your accent gives you away
74 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܪܝ ܠܡܚܪܡܘ ܘܠܡܐܡܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥܢܐ ܠܗ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܩܪܐ ܬܪܢܓܠܐ
. Then he began cursing and to swear, I do not know that man. And at that moment a cock began to crow
75 ܘܐܬܕܟܪ ܟܐܦܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܕܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܕܩܕܡ ܕܢܩܪܐ ܬܪܢܓܠܐ ܬܠܬ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܬܟܦܘܪ ܒܝ ܘܢܦܩ ܠܒܪ ܒܟܐ ܡܪܝܪܐܝܬ
And Kephas remembered what Jesus had foretold, who said to him: Before the cock crows, you will have three times disowned me. And he went out and wept bitterly

Chapter 27

 1 ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܗܘܐ ܨܦܪܐ ܡܠܟܐ ܢܤܒܘ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܥܡܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܡܝܬܘܢܝܗܝ
 
. And when morning came, the high priests and the elders of the people met in council against Jesus to bring about his death
 2 ܘܐܤܪܘܗܝ ܘܐܘܒܠܘܗܝ ܘܐܫܠܡܘܗܝ ܠܦܝܠܛܘܤ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ
 
. And they had him bound, and led him away to hand him over to Pilate, the governor
 3 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܡܫܠܡܢܐ ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܐܬܚܝܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܬܬܘܝ ܘܐܙܠ ܐܗܦܟ ܗܠܝܢ ܬܠܬܝܢ ܕܟܤܦܐ ܠܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܠܩܫܝܫܐ
 
Then Judas, his betrayer, seeing that Jesus had been condemned, was filled with remorse. And he took the thirty pieces of silver back to the high priests and elders
 4 ܘܐܡܪ ܚܛܝܬ ܕܐܫܠܡܬ ܕܡܐ ܙܟܝܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܠܢ ܡܐ ܠܢ ܐܢܬ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܬ
 
. and said: I have sinned, for I have betrayed innocent blood. And they said: What is that to us? That is your concern
 5 ܘܫܕܝܗܝ ܟܤܦܐ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܫܢܝ ܘܐܙܠ ܚܢܩ ܢܦܫܗ
 
. And flinging down the silver in the temple, he made off, and went and hanged himself
 6 ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܫܩܠܘܗܝ ܠܟܤܦܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܐ ܫܠܝܛ ܕܢܪܡܝܘܗܝ ܒܝܬ ܩܘܪܒܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܛܝܡܝ ܕܡܐ ܗܘ
 
. And the high priests picked up the silver, and said: It is not sanctioned to put this into the treasury, because it is blood money
 7 ܘܢܤܒܘ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܙܒܢܘ ܒܗ ܐܓܘܪܤܗ ܕܦܚܪܐ ܠܒܝܬ ܩܒܘܪܐ ܕܐܟܤܢܝܐ
 
. And they discussed the matter, and with it purchased the potter's field, for a place to bury foreigners
 8 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܩܪܝ ܐܓܘܪܤܐ ܗܘ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܕܕܡܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܢܐ
 
. And this is why the field is called the Field of Blood today
 9 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܬܡܠܝ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܒܝܕ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܢܤܒܬ ܬܠܬܝܢ ܕܟܤܦܐ ܕܡܘܗܝ ܕܝܩܝܪܐ ܕܩܨܘ ܡܢ ܒܢܝ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ
 
This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet: I took the thirty silver pieces, the sum at which precious One was priced by the children of Israel
10 ܘܝܗܒܬ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐܓܘܪܤܗ ܕܦܚܪܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܦܩܕ ܠܝ ܡܪܝܐ
. and I gave them for the potter's field, just as the Lord directed me
11 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܡ ܩܕܡ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܘܫܐܠܗ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢܬ ܐܡܪܬ
And Jesus was brought before the governor, and the governor put to him this question: Are you the king of the Jews? And Jesus replied: You have said it
12 ܘܟܕ ܐܟܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܩܪܨܘܗܝ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܡܕܡ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܦܢܝ
. And when the high priests and elders accused him, he made no reply
13 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܦܝܠܛܘܤ ܠܐ ܫܡܥ ܐܢܬ ܟܡܐ ܡܤܗܕܝܢ ܥܠܝܟ
? Then Pilate said to him: Do you not hear how many charges they have brought against you
14 ܘܠܐ ܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܘܠܐ ܒܚܕܐ ܡܠܐ ܘܥܠ ܗܕܐ ܐܬܕܡܪ ܛܒ
. But he did not answer him with even a word, and at this he [Pilate] was utterly amazed
15 ܒܟܠ ܥܐܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܥܕ ܗܘܐ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܕܢܫܪܐ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܚܕ ܠܥܡܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܨܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ
. Now at every feast day, it was the governor's custom to release a prisoner to the people, anyone they chose
16 ܐܤܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܝܕܝܥܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܒܪ ܐܒܐ
. And they held a notorious prisoner, called Bar Abas
17 ܘܟܕ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܝܠܛܘܤ ܠܡܢ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܫܪܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܒܪ ܐܒܐ ܐܘ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܡܫܝܚܐ
? And when the crowd had gathered, Pilate said to them: Which do you want me to release for you, Bar Abas, or Jesus who is called Messiah
18 ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܦܝܠܛܘܤ ܕܡܢ ܚܤܡܐ ܐܫܠܡܘܗܝ
. For Pilate knew that it was out of jealousy that they had handed him over
19 ܟܕ ܝܬܒ ܕܝܢ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܥܠ ܒܝܡ ܕܝܠܗ ܫܠܚܬ ܠܗ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܠܟ ܘܠܗܘ ܙܕܝܩܐ ܤܓܝ ܓܝܪ ܚܫܬ ܒܚܠܡܝ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܡܛܠܬܗ
Now as the governor was presiding on the bench, his wife sent  word to him, and said: Have nothing to do with that Holy man; for I have been greatly upset by a dream I had about of him
20 ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܐܦܝܤܘ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܕܢܫܐܠܘܢ ܠܒܪ ܐܒܐ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܘܒܕܘܢ
. Meanwhile, the high priests and the elders convinced the crowd that they should ask for Bar Abas, and have Jesus put to death
21 ܘܥܢܐ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܢ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܫܪܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܒܪ ܐܒܐ
. So when the governor asked them: Which of the two do you want me to release for you ? They said: Bar Abas
22 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܝܠܛܘܤ ܘܠܝܫܘܥ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܢܐ ܐܥܒܕ ܠܗ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܢܙܕܩܦ
! Pilate said to them: And what am I to do with Jesus who is called Messiah ? They all replied: Crucify him
23 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܡܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܝܫ ܥܒܕ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܩܥܘ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܢܙܕܩܦ
! The governor said to them: But what has he done that is so evil ? And they shouted out even louder: Crucify him
24 ܦܝܠܛܘܤ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܡܘܬܪ ܐܠܐ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܪܘܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܫܩܠ ܡܝܐ ܐܫܝܓ ܐܝܕܘܗܝ ܠܥܝܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܚܤܝ ܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܕܡܗ ܕܗܢܐ ܙܕܝܩܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܕܥܘܢ
And Pilate, when he saw that nothing helped, but instead that a riot was breaking out, he took water and washed his hands in sight of the crowd, and said: I am innocent of this honest man's blood: do as you see fit
25 ܘܥܢܘ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܕܡܗ ܥܠܝܢ ܘܥܠ ܒܢܝܢ
! And all the people answered, and said Let his blood be on us, and on our children
26 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܪܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܒܪ ܐܒܐ ܘܢܓܕ ܒܦܪܓܠܐ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܫܠܡܗ ܕܢܙܕܩܦ
. Then he released to them Bar Abas; and scourged Jesus with whips and handed him over to be crucified 
27 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܤܛܪܛܝܘܛܐ ܕܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܕܒܪܘܗܝ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܠܦܪܛܘܪܝܢ ܘܟܢܫܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܠܟܠܗ ܐܤܦܝܪ
. Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus to the Praetorium, and gathered a whole company of soldiers around him
28 ܘܐܫܠܚܘܗܝ ܘܐܠܒܫܘܗܝ ܟܠܡܝܤ ܕܙܚܘܪܝܬܐ
. And they stripped him down, and wrapped him in a scarlet army cloak
29 ܘܓܕܠܘ ܟܠܝܠܐ ܕܥܘܙܢܝܐ ܘܤܡܘ ܒܪܫܗ ܘܩܢܝܐ ܒܝܡܝܢܗ ܘܒܪܟܘ ܥܠ ܒܘܪܟܝܗܘܢ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܘܡܒܙܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܫܠܡ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ
And they wove a crown of thorns, and set it on his head, and put a reed in his hand, and dropped on knee before him, and mocked him, and said: All hail, king of the Jews
30 ܘܪܩܘ ܒܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܘܫܩܠܘ ܩܢܝܐ ܘܡܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܥܠ ܪܫܗ
. And they spit in his face, and took hold of the reed, and struck him on his head
31 ܘܟܕ ܒܙܚܘ ܒܗ ܐܫܠܚܘܗܝ ܟܠܡܝܤ ܘܐܠܒܫܘܗܝ ܢܚܬܘܗܝ ܘܐܘܒܠܘܗܝ ܕܢܙܕܩܦ
And when they had finished mocking him, they took the cloak off him, and dressed him in his own clothes, and led him out to be crucified
32 ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩܝܢ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܩܘܪܝܢܝܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܠܗܢܐ ܫܚܪܘ ܕܢܫܩܘܠ ܙܩܝܦܗ
. And on their way out, they met a man of Cyrene whose name was Simon; and they ordered him to carry his cross
33 ܘܐܬܘ ܠܕܘܟܬܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܓܓܘܠܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܡܬܦܫܩܐ ܩܪܩܦܬܐ
. And they came to a place called Gagulta, which means a skull
34 ܘܝܗܒܘ ܠܗ ܕܢܫܬܐ ܚܠܐ ܕܚܠܝܛ ܒܡܪܪܬܐ ܘܛܥܡ ܘܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܠܡܫܬܐ
. And they gave him to drink wine, mixed with gall, which he tasted, but would not drink
35 ܘܟܕ ܙܩܦܘܗܝ ܦܠܓܘ ܢܚܬܘܗܝ ܒܦܤܐ
. And when they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots
36 ܘܝܬܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܢܛܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܬܡܢ
. And they sat down there, and kept watch over him
37 ܘܤܡܘ ܠܥܠ ܡܢ ܪܫܗ ܥܠܬܐ ܕܡܘܬܗ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܗܢܘ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ
And they placed above his head the charge for his death, in writing: THIS IS JESUS, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
38 ܘܐܙܕܩܦܘ ܥܡܗ ܬܪܝܢ ܠܤܛܝܐ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܗ ܘܚܕ ܡܢ ܤܡܠܗ
. And there were crucified along with him two robbers, one at his right, and the other on his left
39 ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܓܕܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܘܡܢܝܕܝܢ ܪܫܝܗܘܢ
And those that passed by slandered him, and shook their heads
40 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܤܬܪ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܒܢܐ ܠܗ ܠܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܦܨܐ ܢܦܫܟ ܐܢ ܒܪܗ ܐܢܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܚܘܬ ܡܢ ܙܩܝܦܐ
and said: You, who would do away with the temple, and reconstruct it in three days, save yourself; if you are the Son of God, and come down from the cross
41 ܗܟܘܬ ܐܦ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܡܒܙܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ
, So as well the high priests mocked him, along with the scribes and elders and Pharisees
42 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܚܝ ܢܦܫܗ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܚܝܘ ܐܢ ܡܠܟܗ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܢܚܘܬ ܗܫܐ ܡܢ ܙܩܝܦܐ ܘܢܗܝܡܢ ܒܗ
and they were saying: He gave life to others, yet he is not able save his own life, if he is the king of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, so we may believe in him
43 ܬܟܝܠ ܥܠ ܐܠܗܐ ܢܦܪܩܝܘܗܝ ܗܫܐ ܐܢ ܨܒܐ ܒܗ ܐܡܪ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܪܗ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
. He put his trust in God; let him save him now, if he so wishes it with him: for he said, I am the Son of God
44 ܗܟܘܬ ܐܦ ܓܝܤܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܙܕܩܦܘ ܥܡܗ ܡܚܤܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
. In the same way, even the robbers that were crucified with him taunted him
45 ܡܢ ܫܬ ܫܥܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܗܘܐ ܚܫܘܟܐ ܥܠ ܟܠܗ ܐܪܥܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܥܐ ܬܫܥ
. And from noon on there was darkness over all the land, until mid-afternoon
46 ܘܠܐܦܝ ܬܫܥ ܫܥܝܢ ܩܥܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܝܠ ܐܝܠ ܠܡܢܐ ܫܒܩܬܢܝ
? And about mid-afternoon, Jesus cried with a loud voice and said: My God, My God; why have you left me
47 ܐܢܫܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܗܢܐ ܠܐܠܝܐ ܩܪܐ
. And some of the men that stood there, when they heard it, said: This man calls for Elijah
48 ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܪܗܛ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܘܫܩܠ ܐܤܦܘܓܐ ܘܡܠܗ ܚܠܐ ܘܤܡܗ ܒܩܢܝܐ ܘܡܫܩܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ
And immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, and soaked it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and offered it to him to drink
49 ܫܪܟܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܫܒܘܩܘ ܢܚܙܐ ܐܢ ܐܬܐ ܐܠܝܐ ܠܡܦܪܩܗ
. But the rest said: Let him be; let us see if Elijah comes to save him
50 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܬܘܒ ܩܥܐ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܫܒܩ ܪܘܚܗ
. Then Jesus cried again with a loud voice, and gave up his spirit
51 ܘܡܚܕܐ ܐܦܝ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܗܝܟܠܐ ܐܨܛܪܝ ܠܬܪܝܢ ܡܢ ܠܥܠ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܬܚܬ ܘܐܪܥܐ ܐܬܬܙܝܥܬ ܘܟܐܦܐ ܐܨܛܪܝ
And suddenly the curtain at the entrance of the temple was torn apart, from top to bottom; and the earth shook, and the boulders split
52 ܘܒܝܬ ܩܒܘܪܐ ܐܬܦܬܚܘ ܘܦܓܪܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܫܟܝܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܩܡܘ
, and the tombs were opened; and many bodies of saints who were at rest, arose
53 ܘܢܦܩܘ ܘܒܬܪ ܩܝܡܬܗ ܥܠܘ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܩܕܝܫܬܐ ܘܐܬܚܙܝܘ ܠܤܓܝܐܐ
. and went out, and after his resurrection, entered into the holy city, and were seen by many
54 ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܕܥܡܗ ܕܢܛܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܙܘܥܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܘܝ ܕܚܠܘ ܛܒ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܗܢܐ ܒܪܗ ܗܘܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And when the centurion, together with those guarding Jesus, had seen the earthquake and all that had taken place, they were very afraid, and said: Truly, this was the Son of God
55 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܝ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܬܡܢ ܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܗܘܝ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܩܐ ܗܢܝܢ ܕܐܬܝ ܗܘܝ ܒܬܪܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܡܫܡܫܢ ܗܘܝ ܠܗ
. And many women were there looking on from a distance, those who had followed Jesus from Galilee, and had attended to him
56 ܕܚܕܐ ܡܢܗܝܢ ܡܪܝܡ ܡܓܕܠܝܬܐ ܘܡܪܝܡ ܐܡܗ ܕܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܕܝܘܤܐ ܘܐܡܗܘܢ ܕܒܢܝ ܙܒܕܝ
. And one of them was Mary of Magdala, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's children
57 ܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܪܡܫܐ ܐܬܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܥܬܝܪܐ ܡܢ ܪܡܬܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܝܘܤܦ ܕܐܦ ܗܘ ܐܬܬܠܡܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܝܫܘܥ
. And when evening came, there arrived a wealthy man from Ramath, whose name was Joseph, who was also taught by Jesus
58 ܗܢܐ ܩܪܒ ܠܘܬ ܦܝܠܛܘܤ ܘܫܐܠ ܦܓܪܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܘܦܩܕ ܦܝܠܛܘܤ ܕܢܬܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܦܓܪܐ
. This man went nearby to Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus. And Pilate ordered the body be handed over to him
59 ܘܫܩܠܗ ܝܘܤܦ ܠܦܓܪܐ ܘܟܪܟܗ ܒܚܝܨܐ ܕܟܬܢܐ ܢܩܕܐ
; And Joseph took the body, and wrapped it in a shroud of clean linen
60 ܘܤܡܗ ܒܒܝܬ ܩܒܘܪܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܕܝܠܗ ܕܢܩܝܪ ܒܟܐܦܐ ܘܥܓܠܘ ܟܐܦܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܐܪܡܝܘ ܥܠ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܩܒܘܪܐ ܘܐܙܠܘ
and laid it in his own new tomb, that was hewn out from rock. And he placed a large boulder at the entrance of the tomb, and went away
61 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܝ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܡܪܝܡ ܡܓܕܠܝܬܐ ܘܡܪܝܡ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܕܝܬܒܢ ܗܘܝ ܠܩܘܒܠܗ ܕܩܒܪܐ
. And now Mary of Magdala, and the other Mary were there, sitting across from the tomb
62 ܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܚܪ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܒܬܪ ܥܪܘܒܬܐ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܠܘܬ ܦܝܠܛܘܤ
, And on the next day which was after the sunset, the high priests and Pharisees convened with Pilate
63 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܪܢ ܐܬܕܟܪܢ ܕܗܘ ܡܛܥܝܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܟܕ ܚܝ ܕܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܩܐܡ ܐܢܐ
. and said to him: Ruler of us, we recall what this fraud said while he was alive, that, After three days, I will rise
64 ܦܩܘܕ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܙܕܗܪܝܢ ܒܩܒܪܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܐܬܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܢܓܢܒܘܢܝܗܝ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܘܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܥܡܐ ܕܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܩܡ ܘܬܗܘܐ ܛܘܥܝܝ ܐܚܪܝܬܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܡܢ ܩܕܡܝܬܐ
Order it, therefore, that they guard the tomb; until the third day; lest his disciples come and steal him away by night, and say to the people that he has risen from the dead; and this final fraud be worse than the first
65 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܝܠܛܘܤ ܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܩܤܛܘܢܪܐ ܙܠܘ ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ 
. Pilate said to them: You have a guard: go and secure it as well as you can
66 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܙܠܘ ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܒܩܒܪܐ ܘܚܬܡܘ ܟܐܦܐ ܗܝ ܥܡ ܩܤܛܘܢܪܐ
. And they went and took guard by the tomb, and sealed the stone


Chapter 28

 1 ܒܪܡܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܫܒܬܐ ܕܢܓܗ ܚܕ ܒܫܒܐ ܐܬܬ ܡܪܝܡ ܡܓܕܠܝܬܐ ܘܡܪܝܡ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܕܢܚܙܝܢ ܩܒܪܐ
 
And now as the Sabbath waned, in the dawn of the first of the week, came Mary of Magdala and the other Mary, to view the tomb
 2 ܘܗܐ ܙܘܥܐ ܪܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܢܚܬ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܩܪܒ ܥܓܠ ܟܐܦܐ ܡܢ ܬܪܥܐ ܘܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܠܝܗ
 
Behold, there was a great earthquake: for an angel of the Lord descended from Heaven, and came and rolled away the stone from the entrance, and sat upon it
 3 ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܚܙܘܗ ܐܝܟ ܒܪܩܐ ܘܠܒܘܫܗ ܚܘܪ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܬܠܓܐ
 
: And his countenance was as lightning; and his robes white as snow
 4 ܘܡܢ ܕܚܠܬܗ ܐܬܬܙܝܥܘ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܢܛܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܗܘܘ ܐܝܟ ܡܝܬܐ
 
. and the guards were were shaken with fear, and became lifeless
 5 ܥܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܢܫܐ ܐܢܬܝܢ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠܢ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܝܫܘܥ ܕܐܙܕܩܦ ܒܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܝܢ
 
. But the angel answered, and said to the women: Be not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified
 6 ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܬܢܢ ܩܡ ܠܗ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܬܐܝܝܢ ܚܙܝܝܢ ܕܘܟܬܐ ܕܤܝܡ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܡܪܢ
 
. He is not here; for he is risen, as he predicted. Come, see the place where our Lord was laid
 7 ܘܙܠܝܢ ܒܥܓܠ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܩܡ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܗܐ ܩܕܡ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ ܬܡܢ ܬܚܙܘܢܝܗܝ ܗܐ ܐܡܪܬ ܠܟܝܢ
 
Now go quickly and tell his disciples, that he is risen from the dead; and Behold, he goes before you to Galilee; there will you see him. Behold, I have told you
 8 ܘܐܙܠ ܥܓܠ ܡܢ ܩܒܪܐ ܒܕܚܠܬܐ ܘܒܚܕܘܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܘܪܗܛܢ ܕܢܐܡܪܢ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
 
. And they left quickly from the tomb, with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples
 9 ܘܗܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܦܓܥ ܒܗܝܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܝܢ ܫܠܡ ܠܟܝܢ ܗܢܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܩܪܒ ܐܚܕ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܘܤܓܕܝܢ ܠܗ
 
. And Jesus met them, and said to them: Peace to you. And they came close and clutched his feet, and fell down before him
10 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠܢ ܐܠܐ ܙܠܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܐܚܝ ܕܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܬܡܢ ܢܚܙܘܢܢܝ
. Then Jesus said to them: Do not be afraid; but go, tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and they will see me there
11 ܟܕ ܐܙܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܩܤܛܘܢܪܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܗܘܐ
. Now when they had left, some of the guards came into the city, and told the high priests everything that had happened
12 ܘܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܥܡ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܢܤܒܘ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܝܗܒܘ ܟܤܦܐ ܠܐ ܙܥܘܪ ܠܩܤܛܘܢܪܐ
, And they convened with the elders, and held a meeting; and they handed over a considerable bribe to the guards 
13 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܕܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܬܘ ܓܢܒܘܗܝ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܟܕ ܕܡܟܝܢ ܚܢܢ
. and they said to them: Say that his disciples came and stole him away in the night while we were sleeping
14 ܘܐܢ ܐܫܬܡܥܬ ܗܕܐ ܩܕܡ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܚܢܢ ܡܦܝܤܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܗ ܘܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܨܦܬܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ
. And should the Governor come to hear of this, we will deal with him, and we will not get you in trouble 
15 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܢܤܒܘ ܟܤܦܐ ܥܒܕܘ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܠܦܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܢܦܩܬ ܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܒܝܬ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܢܐ
. And they, when they took the money, did as they had been told to do. And this is the word among the Jews to this day
16 ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܚܕܥܤܪ ܐܙܠܘ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܘܥܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ
. And now, the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had summoned them to
17 ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܤܓܕܘ ܠܗ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܦܠܓܘ ܗܘܘ
. And at the sight of him some that were doubting fell down before him 
18 ܘܩܪܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܠܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܬܝܗܒ ܠܝ ܟܠ ܫܘܠܛܢ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܒܐܪܥܐ ܘܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ ܐܒܝ ܡܫܕܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ
And Jesus drew near, and spoke with them, and said to them: All authority has been given to me, in Heaven and on earth. And as my Father sent me, so I send you
19 ܙܠܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܠܡܕܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܘܐܥܡܕܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܫܡ ܐܒܐ ܘܒܪܐ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations; and baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit
20 ܘܐܠܦܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܢܛܪܘܢ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܦܩܕܬܟܘܢ ܘܗܐ ܐܢܐ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܐܢܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܘܠܡܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܐܡܝܢ
. And teach them to hold to all the precepts I gave to you. And know that I am with you always, to the end of the world, Amen
