Chapter 1
ܦܘܠܘܣ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܛܝܡܬܐܘܣ ܐܚܐ ܠܥܕܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܩܘܪܢܬܘܣ ܘܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܐܟܐܝܐ ܟܠܗ
1 Paulus, a Shlikha {a Sent One} of Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}, by the will of Alaha {God}, and Timatheus {Timothy}, a Brother: unto The Edtha d’Alaha {The Assembly of God} which is in Qurinthus {Corinth}, and unto all The Qadishe {The Holy Ones} which are in all Akaia:

ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܘܫܠܡܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܒܘܢ ܘܡܢ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
2 Taybutha {Grace} be with you, and Shlama {Peace}, from Alaha Abun {God, Our Father} and from Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

ܡܒܪܟ ܗܘ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܒܘܗܝ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܒܐ ܕܪܚܡܐ ܘܐܠܗܐ ܕܟܠ ܒܘܝܐ
3 Blessed is Alaha Abuhe d’Maran Eshu Meshikha {God, The Father of Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}, The Aba d’Rakhme {The Father of Mercies}, and The Alaha {God} of all comfort,

ܗܘ ܕܡܒܝܐ ܠܢ ܒܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܘܠܨܢܝܢ ܕܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܢܫܟܚ ܢܒܝܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܟܠ ܐܘܠܨܢܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܗܘ
ܒܘܝܐܐ ܕܚܢܢ ܡܬܒܝܐܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ
4 He who comforts us in all our afflictions, so that we also are able to be comforting unto those who are in all afflictions, by that comfort which we are being comforted with from Alaha {God}.

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܬܝܬܪܝܢ ܒܢ ܚܫܘܗܝ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܒܝܕ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܬܝܬܪ ܐܦ ܒܘܝܐܢ
5 For, as there abounds in us the sufferings of Meshikha {The Anointed One}, thus through Meshikha {The Anointed One}, there abounds also our comfort.

ܐܦܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܬܐܠܨܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܥܠ ܐܦܝ ܒܘܝܐܟܘܢ ܗܘ ܘܥܠ ܐܦܝ ܚܝܝܟܘܢ ܡܬܐܠܨܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܐܢ ܡܬܒܝܐܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܬܒܝܐܘܢ ܘܬܗܘܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܚܦܝܛܘܬܐ ܕܬܣܝܒܪܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܚܫܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܚܫܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܗܘܢ
6 Yet, even though we are afflicted, it is concerning your person’s comfort, and concerning your person’s life, that we are afflicted. And also, if we are comforted, it is because you are comforted, and that there might be perseverance in you, so that you might endure these sufferings which we are also suffering.

ܘܣܒܪܢ ܕܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܫܪܝܪ ܗܘ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܢ ܫܘܬܦܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܚܫܐ ܫܘܬܦܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܦ ܒܒܘܝܐܐ
7 And our hope that concerns you is firm, for, we know that if you are partakers in the sufferings, you are also partakers in the comfort.

ܨܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܬܕܥܘܢ ܐܚܝܢ ܥܠ ܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܠܢ ܒܐܣܝܐ ܕܪܘܪܒܐܝܬ ܐܬܐܠܨܢ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܚܝܠܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܩܪܝܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܝܝܢ ܠܡܬܛܠܩܘ
8 Yet, we desire that you should know, my Brothers, concerning the affliction that happened to us in Asyia, that we were greatly afflicted beyond our strength, until our lives were near to be finished,

ܘܥܠ ܢܦܫܢ ܦܣܩܢ ܡܘܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܢ ܬܘܟܠܢܐ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܢ ܐܠܐ ܥܠ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܕܡܩܝܡ ܡܝܬܐ
9 and concerning our souls, we were determined to die, so that we might not be confident concerning our souls, but rather, concerning Alaha {God}, who raises the dead,

ܗܘ ܕܡܢ ܡܘܬܐ ܚܣܝܢܐ ܦܪܩܢ ܘܬܘܒ ܡܣܒܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܦܪܩ ܠܢ
10 He who rescued us from strong deaths, and will rescue us again, we hope,

ܒܡܥܕܪܢܘܬܐ ܕܒܥܘܬܟܘܢ ܕܥܠ ܐܦܝܢ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܡܘܗܒܬܗ ܕܠܘܬܢ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܕܥܒܝܕܐ ܒܐܦܝ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܣܓܝܐܐ ܢܘܕܘܢ ܠܗ ܥܠ ܐܦܝܢ
11 by the help of your prayers concerning our persons, so that His Gift that is with us, would be kindness that is done among many persons, and many will give thanks unto Him concerning our persons.

ܫܘܒܗܪܢ ܓܝܪ ܗܢܘ ܗܘ ܣܗܕܘܬܐ ܕܪܥܝܢܝܢ ܕܒܦܫܝܛܘܬܐ ܘܒܕܟܝܘܬܐ ܘܒܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܗܦܟܢ ܒܥܠܡܐ ܘܠܐ ܒܚܟܡܬܐ ܕܦܓܪܐ ܘܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ
12 For, our boasting to such a degree, is this: The testimony of our conscience, that we have conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity, and in purity, and in The Taybutha d’Alaha {The Grace of God}, and not in the wisdom of the flesh, and especially unto your own.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܢ ܟܬܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܦ ܡܫܬܘܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܟܝܠ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܕܡܐ ܠܐܚܪܝܬܐ ܬܫܬܘܕܥܘܢ
13 We are writing no other thing unto you, but that which you know; you also even profess. But, I am confident that until the end, you will profess,

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܦ ܐܫܬܘܕܥܬܘܢ ܩܠܝܠ ܡܢ ܣܓܝ ܕܫܘܒܗܪܟܘܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܠܢ ܒܝܘܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
14 how that you also partially know, that we are your glory, as also you are our own, in The Day of Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

ܘܒܗܢܐ ܬܘܟܠܢܐ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܕܐܥܝܦܐܝܬ ܬܩܒܠܘܢ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ
15 And in this confidence I had desired formerly that I might come unto you, so that you might receive twice The Taybutha {The Grace},

ܘܐܥܒܪ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܠܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܘܬܘܒ ܡܢ ܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܐܬܐ ܘܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܠܘܘܢܢܝ ܠܝܗܘܕ
16 and to pass by you toward the Maqedunaye {the Macedonians}, and again from the Maqedunaye {the Macedonians} to come unto you, and you to accompany me unto Yehud {Judea}.

ܗܕܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܐܬܪܥܝܬ ܠܡܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܣܪܗܒܐ ܐܬܪܥܝܬ ܐܘ ܕܠܡܐ ܕܒܣܪ ܐܢܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܬܪܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܒܗܝܢ ܐܝܢ ܐܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܠܐ
17 This therefore, that I have purposed; was it considered hastily? Or perhaps what I have purposed, is of the flesh, on account that it was proper that it be with a yes, yes, and a no, no?

ܡܗܝܡܢ ܗܘ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܠܬܢ ܕܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܐܝܢ ܘܠܐ
18 Faithful is Alaha {God}, that our word was not yes and no unto you.

ܒܪܗ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܘ ܕܒܐܝܕܢ ܐܬܟܪܙ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܝ ܘܒܣܠܘܢܘܣ ܘܒܛܝܡܬܐܘܣ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܢ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ
19 For, The Son of Alaha {God}, Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}, He who by our hand was proclaimed unto you; by me, and by Silvanus, and by Timatheus {Timothy}, wasn’t yes and no, but rather, in Him, was Yes.

ܟܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܡܘܠܟܢܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܗ ܗܘ ܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܝܗܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܠܬܫܒܘܚܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
20 For, all The Mulkanuhi d’Alaha {The Promises of God}, are Yes in Him; in Meshikha {The Anointed One}. On this account, by His Hand, we give an Amiyn {Amen}, unto The Theshbukhthe d’Alaha {The Glory of God}.

ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܡܫܪܪ ܠܢ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܘ ܕܗܘ ܡܫܚܢ
21 Yet, it is Alaha {God} who establishes us with you in Meshikha {The Anointed One}, He who Himself has anointed us,

ܘܚܬܡܢ ܘܝܗܒ ܪܗܒܘܢܐ ܕܪܘܚܗ ܒܠܒܘܬܢ
22 and has sealed us, and has given us The Deposit of Rukheh {His Spirit} in our hearts.

ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܡܣܗܕ ܐܢܐ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܝ ܕܡܛܠ ܕܚܐܣ ܐܢܐ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܠܩܘܪܢܬܘܣ
23 But, unto Alaha {God} I testify concerning my soul, that because I care about you, I didn’t come to Qurinthus {Corinth}.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܪܝ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܟܘܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܠܐ ܡܥܕܪܢܐ ܚܢܢ ܕܚܕܘܬܟܘܢ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
24 It isn’t because that we are lords of your Faith, but rather, we are helpers of your Joy, for, it is by His Faith that you are standing.

Chapter 2
ܕܢܬ ܕܝܢ ܗܕܐ ܒܢܦܫܝ ܕܠܐ ܬܘܒ ܒܟܪܝܘܬܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ
1 But, I have decided this in my soul: That I will not come unto you again, in grief.

ܐܢ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܟܪܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢܘ ܢܚܕܝܢܝ ܐܠܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܟܪܝܬ ܠܗ
2 For, if I grieve you, who will make me to rejoice, but, those whom I have made to grieve?

ܘܕܟܬܒܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܕܠܐ ܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܢܟܪܘܢ ܠܝ ܗܢܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܢܚܕܘܢܢܝ ܬܟܝܠ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܥܠ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܕܚܕܘܬܝ ܕܟܠܟܘܢ ܗܝ
3 And this that I have written unto you, is so, that when I come, I will not cause grief for those who rightly should be they who are rejoicing. Yet, I am confident concerning all of you, that my joy is that of you all.

ܘܡܢ ܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܘܡܢ ܐܢܘܣܝܐ ܕܠܒܐ ܟܬܒܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܒܕܡܥܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܬܟܪܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܬܕܥܘܢ ܚܘܒܐ ܝܬܝܪܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ
4 And from great distress, and from oppression of heart, I wrote these things unto you, with many tears; not because of sorrow for you, but rather, for this reason; so that you might know the abundant Khuba {Love} that I have for you.

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫ ܐܟܪܝ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܝ ܐܟܪܝ ܐܠܐ ܒܨܝܪܐ ܩܠܝܠ ܠܟܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܬܐܩܪ ܡܠܬܐ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ
5 Yet, if someone has caused grief, he is not a grief only to me, but in a small degree, to us all; so that the matter doesn’t become too heavy upon us.

ܟܕܘ ܠܗ ܕܝܢ ܠܗܢܐ ܟܐܬܐ ܕܡܢ ܣܓܝܐܐ
6 But, it is enough for him for this reproof that is from the many,

ܘܡܟܝܠ ܐܚܪܢܝܐܝܬ ܘܠܐ ܕܬܫܒܩܘܢ ܠܗ ܘܬܒܝܐܘܢܗ ܕܠܡܐ ܒܟܪܝܘܬܐ ܝܬܝܪܬܐ ܢܬܒܠܥ ܠܗ ܗܘ ܡܢ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܗܘ
7 and hereafter, let it be otherwise, as it is proper that you forgive him, and to encourage him, that one who is thus, lest he is swallowed up in excessive grief.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܬܫܪܪܘܢ ܒܗ ܚܘܒܟܘܢ
8 Because of this, I require from you that you confirm your Love with him.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܟܬܒܬ ܐܦ ܕܐܕܥ ܒܢܣܝܢܐ ܐܢ ܒܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܡܫܬܡܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
9 For, because of this, I also wrote; so that I would know by this test, if you would be obedient in every thing.

ܠܡܢ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܫܒܩܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܕܡ ܕܫܒܩܬ ܠܡܢ ܕܫܒܩܬ ܡܛܠܬܟܘܢ ܗܘ ܫܒܩܬ ܒܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ
10 Yet, for whoever that you forgive, I do also. For, even I, for the thing that I forgive, for whoever that I forgive, is because of you that I forgive, through The Person of Meshikha {The Anointed One},

ܕܠܐ ܢܥܠܒܢ ܣܛܢܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܓܝܪ ܡܚܫܒܬܗ
11 so that satana doesn’t oppress us; for, we know his thoughts.

ܟܕ ܐܬܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܠܛܪܘܐܘܣ ܒܣܒܪܬܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܐܬܦܬܚ ܠܝ ܬܪܥܐ ܒܡܪܝܐ
12 But, after I came to Troas with The Sabartheh d’Meshikha {The Hopeful Message of The Anointed One}, and a gate was opened for me by MarYa {The Lord-YHWH},

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܝ ܢܝܚܐ ܒܪܘܚܝ ܕܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܬ ܠܛܛܘܣ ܐܚܝ ܐܠܐ ܫܪܝܬ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܢܦܩܬ ܠܝ ܠܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ
13 there was no rest for me in my spirit, because I didn’t find Titus, my Brother, but rather, I left them and went unto the Maqedunaye {The Macedonians}.

ܛܝܒܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܕܒܟܠ ܙܒܢ ܚܙܬܐ ܥܒܕ ܠܢ ܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܓܠܐ ܒܢ ܪܝܚܐ ܕܝܕܥܬܗ ܒܟܠ ܐܬܪ
14 But, thanks be unto Alaha {God}, who at every time makes us a spectacle in Meshikha {The Anointed One}, and reveals through us the fragrance of His knowledge, in every place,

ܪܝܚܐ ܚܢܢ ܓܝܪ ܒܣܝܡܐ ܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܒܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܚܐܝܢ ܘܒܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܒܕܝܢ
15 for, we are a pleasant fragrance in Meshikha {The Anointed One} unto Alaha {God}, in those who are living, and in those who are perishing;

ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܪܝܚܐ ܕܡܘܬܐ ܠܡܘܬܐ ܘܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܪܝܚܐ ܕܚܝܐ ܠܚܝܐ ܘܠܗܠܝܢ ܡܢܘ ܢܫܘܐ
16 unto those who are of a fragrance of death, unto death, and unto those who are of a fragrance of life, unto life, and unto those who are worthy.

ܠܐ ܗܘܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܟ ܫܪܟܐ ܕܡܡܙܓܝܢ ܡܠܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܒܫܪܪܐ ܘܐܝܟ ܕܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ
17 For, we are not like the rest, who are mixing The Words of Alaha {God}, but rather, as that which is in The Shrara {The Truth}, and as from Alaha {God}, we are speaking before Alaha {God}, in Meshikha {The Anointed One}.


Chapter 3
ܡܫܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܢ ܬܘܒ ܡܢ ܕܪܝܫ ܕܢܚܘܝܟܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܚܢܢ ܐܘ ܕܠܡܐ ܣܢܝܩܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܝܟ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܐܓܪܬܐ ܕܦܘܩܕܐ ܢܬܟܬܒܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܥܠܝܢ ܐܘ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܟܬܒܘܢ ܬܦܩܕܘܢ ܥܠܝܢ
1 Do we begin to again, from the beginning, show you who we are? Or, do we perhaps need, as others, that letters of commendations be written for us concerning you, or, that you should write commendations concerning us?

ܐܓܪܬܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܝܠܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܟܬܝܒܐ ܒܠܒܢ ܘܝܕܝܥܐ ܘܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܡܢ ܟܠ ܐܢܫ
2 For, you yourselves are our letter, who are written in our hearts, and known and read from every nash {man},

ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܓܪܬܗ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܐܫܬܡܫܬ ܡܢܢ ܕܟܬܝܒܐ ܠܐ ܒܕܝܘܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܚܝܐ ܠܐ ܒܠܘܚܐ ܕܟܐܦܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܠܘܚܐ ܕܠܒܐ ܕܒܣܪܐ
3 for, you know that you are The Letter of Meshikha {The Anointed One}, that is ministered from us, that is written not in ink, but rather, in The Rukha d’Alaha Khaya {The Spirit of The Living God}; not with Tablets of Stone, but rather, with Tablets of The Heart.

ܬܘܟܠܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ
4 Yet, this is the confidence for us in Meshikha {The Anointed One}, towards Alaha {God},

ܠܘ ܕܚܢܢ ܣܦܩܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܢܬܪܥܐ ܡܕܡ ܐܝܟ ܕܡܢ ܢܦܫܢ ܐܠܐ ܚܝܠܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ
5 not that we are sufficient, who think something as being from our own souls, but rather, our strength is from Alaha {God},

ܗܘ ܕܐܫܘܝܢ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܡܫܡܫܢܐ ܕܕܝܬܩܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܠܐ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܟܬܒܐ ܓܝܪ ܩܛܠ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܚܝܐ
6 He who has made us worthy, so that we could be Ministers of The New
Covenant; not in The Kathaba {The Scripture}, but rather, in The Rukha {The Spirit}, for, The Kathaba {The Scripture} kills, but, The Rukha {The Spirit} gives Life!

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܡܘܬܐ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܐܬܪܫܡܬ ܒܟܐܦܐ ܘܗܘܬ ܒܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܫܟܚܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܠܡܚܪ ܒܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܕܡܘܫܐ ܡܛܠ ܫܘܒܚܐ ܕܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܒܛܠ
7 But, if the ministry of mawtha {death} was in The Kathaba {The Scripture}, engraved in stones, and was in glory, such that the sons of Israel were not able to look at the face of Mushe {Moses}, because of the glory of his face; which ceased.

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܠܐ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܬܗܘܐ ܒܫܘܒܚܐ
8 How therefore should The Ministry of The Rukha {The Spirit} not be greater in glory?

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܠܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܚܘܝܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܫܘܒܚܐ ܚܕ ܟܡܐ ܬܬܝܬܪ ܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܙܕܝܩܘܬܐ ܒܫܘܒܚܐ
9 For, if there was glory for the ministry of condemnation, how much more abundant in glory is The Ministry of Righteousness?

ܐܝܟ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܦ ܠܐ ܡܫܒܚܐ ܗܝ ܕܐܫܬܒܚܬ ܒܦܘܚܡܐ ܕܗܢܐ ܫܘܒܚܐ ܡܝܬܪܐ
10 For, as that one which was glorious was not even glorious in comparison of this one, which excels in glory.

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܒܛܠ ܒܫܘܒܚܐ ܗܘܐ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܡܩܘܐ ܒܫܘܒܚܐ ܢܗܘܐ
11 For, if the thing which ceased, was in glory, how especially is that which remains in glory?

ܡܛܠ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܗܢܐ ܣܒܪܐ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܒܓܠܐ ܥܝܢ ܡܬܕܒܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ
12 Therefore, because there is this abundant Hope for us, we are guided with uncovered eyes,

ܘܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܘܫܐ ܕܪܡܐ ܗܘܐ ܬܚܦܝܬܐ ܥܠ ܐܦܘܗܝ ܕܠܐ ܢܚܘܪܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܒܫܘܠܡܗ ܕܗܘ ܕܡܬܒܛܠ
13 and not as Mushe {Moses}, who had put a covering on his face, so that the sons of Israel would not look at the end of that which was ceasing.

ܐܠܐ ܐܬܥܘܪܘ ܒܡܕܥܝܗܘܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܝܘܡܢܐ ܐܡܬܝ ܕܕܝܬܩܐ ܥܬܝܩܬܐ ܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܗܝ ܗܝ ܬܚܦܝܬܐ ܩܝܡܐ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܡܬܓܠܝܐ ܕܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܘ ܡܬܒܛܠܐ
14 But rather, they were blinded in their understanding, for until today, when The Old Testament {or, Covenant} is read, that covering is set upon them, and it isn’t revealed unto them that in Meshikha {The Anointed One}, it has ceased.

ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܢܐ ܐܡܬܝ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܬܚܦܝܬܐ ܥܠ ܠܒܗܘܢ ܪܡܝܐ
15 And until today, when Mushe {Moses i.e. The Torah} is read, a covering is placed on their hearts.

ܘܐܡܬܝ ܕܐܢܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܢܬܦܢܐ ܠܘܬ ܡܪܝܐ ܡܫܬܩܠܐ ܡܢܗ ܬܚܦܝܬܐ
16 And when a man from them turns unto MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, the covering is removed from him.

ܡܪܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܗܘܝܘ ܪܘܚܐ ܘܐܬܪ ܕܪܘܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܚܐܪܘܬܐ ܗܝ
17 Now, MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, He is The Rukha {The Spirit}, and where The Rukheh d’MarYa {The Spirit of The Lord-YHWH} is, there is freedom!

ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܢ ܒܐܦܐ ܓܠܝܬܐ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܒܡܚܙܝܬܐ ܚܙܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܠܗ ܠܕܡܘܬܐ
ܡܫܬܚܠܦܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܢ ܫܘܒܚܐ ܠܫܘܒܚܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܡܢ ܡܪܝܐ ܪܘܚܐ
18 But, we all, with uncovered faces, behold The Theshbukhtheh d’MarYa {The Glory of The Lord-YHWH} as in a mirror, and unto that image we are transformed, from glory to glory, as which is from MarYa Rukha {The Lord-YHWH; The Spirit}.

Chapter 4
ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܠܐ ܡܐܢܐ ܠܢ ܒܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܐܚܝܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܝܟ ܪܚܡܐ ܕܗܘܘ ܥܠܝܢ
1 Because of this, it isn’t wearisome for us, in this Ministry which we are charged with, according to the Mercies which are upon us,

ܐܠܐ ܐܣܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܟܣܝܬܗ ܕܒܗܬܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܗܠܟܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܒܚܪܥܘܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܢܟܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܓܠܝܘܬܐ ܕܫܪܪܐ ܡܚܘܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܢܦܫܢ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܪܥܝܢܐ ܕܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ
2 but rather, we have rejected the hidden things of shame, and we don’t walk with cunning, and we are not deceitful with The Miltheh d’Alaha {The Word of God}, but rather, with The Revelation of The Truth, we are portraying our souls unto all the minds of the sons of men, before Alaha {God}.

ܘܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܟܣܝ ܗܘ ܐܘܢܓܠܝܘܢ ܕܝܠܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܒܕܝܢ ܗܘ ܡܟܣܝ
3 And yet, if our Evangeliun {Good Message} is hidden, it is hidden to those who are perishing,

ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܥܘܪ ܡܕܥܝܗܘܢ ܥܠ ܕܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܕܢܚ ܠܗܘܢ ܢܘܗܪܗ
ܕܐܘܢܓܠܝܘܢ ܕܫܘܒܚܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܗܘܝܘ ܕܡܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
4 whom the alaheh {the god} of this age has blinded, concerning their understanding, so that they would not believe; that The Light of The Evangeliun d’Shubkheh d’Meshikha {The Good Message of The Glory of The Anointed One}, He who is The Image of Alaha {God}, wouldn’t shine unto them.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܢܦܫܢ ܡܟܪܙܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܠܐ ܠܡܫܝܚܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܪܢ ܠܢܦܫܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܒܕܝܟܘܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܛܠ
ܝܫܘܥ
5 For, we are not Proclaiming ourselves, but rather, Meshikha Eshu Maran {The Anointed One, Y’shu, Our Lord}. Yet, for ourselves, we who are your servants on account of Eshu {Y’shu},

ܡܛܠ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܡܢ ܚܫܘܟܐ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܢܕܢܚ ܗܘ ܕܢܚ ܒܠܒܘܬܢ ܕܢܬܢܗܪ ܒܝܕܥܬܐ ܕܫܘܒܚܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
6 because of Alaha {God}, He who commanded that light shine from darkness, He has shined in our hearts, so that we might be illuminated with The Knowledge of The Glory of Alaha {God} in The Person of Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

ܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܕܝܢ ܣܝܡܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܒܡܐܢܐ ܕܚܨܦܐ ܕܪܒܘܬܐ ܕܚܝܠܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܢܢ
7 But, for us, this treasure is in vessels of clay, so that The Greatness of The Power would be from Alaha {God}, and not from us.

ܒܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܝܢ ܡܬܐܠܨܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܠܐ ܠܐ ܡܬܚܢܩܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܬܛܪܦܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܠܐ ܠܐ ܚܝܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ
8 Yet, in every thing we are constrained, but, we are not strangled; we are beaten, but, we are not guilty;

ܡܬܪܕܦܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܠܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܬܒܩܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܣܬܚܦܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܠܐ ܠܐ ܐܒܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ
9 we are persecuted, but, we are not abandoned; we are thrown down, but, we are not ruined.

ܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܓܝܪ ܡܝܬܘܬܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܒܦܓܪܝܢ ܫܩܝܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܐܦ ܚܝܘܗܝ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܒܦܓܪܝܢ ܢܬܓܠܘܢ
10 For, we constantly bear the death of Eshu {Y’shu} in our bodies, so that The Life of Eshu {Y’shu} will also be manifested in our bodies,

ܐܢ ܚܢܢ ܓܝܪ ܚܝܐ ܠܡܘܬܐ ܡܫܬܠܡܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܛܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܚܝܘܗܝ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܢܬܓܠܘܢ ܒܦܓܪܢ ܗܢܐ ܕܡܐܬ
11 for, if we, The Living, are delivered up unto death on account of Eshu {Y’shu}, thus, The Life of Eshu {Y’shu} will also be manifested in this our body of death.

ܗܫܐ ܡܘܬܐ ܒܢ ܡܬܚܦܛ ܘܚܝܐ ܒܟܘܢ
12 Now, death is at work in us, and Life in you.

ܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܚܕܐ ܗܝ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܗܝܡܢܬ ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܦ ܡܠܠܬ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܦ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ
13 We also therefore, who each have The Rukha d’Haymanutha {The Spirit of Faith}; for, as it is written that, “I believe, because of this, I also speak.” We are believing, because we also are speaking,

ܘܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܗܘ ܡܢ ܕܐܩܝܡ ܠܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܦ ܠܢ ܒܝܕ ܝܫܘܥ ܢܩܝܡ ܘܢܩܪܒܢ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܠܘܬܗ
14 and we know that He who raised up Maran Eshu {Our Lord Y’shu}, for us also, by means of Eshu {Y’shu}, will raise us up, and bring us with you, unto Himself.

ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܓܝܪ ܡܛܠܬܟܘܢ ܗܘ ܕܟܕ ܡܬܝܬܪܐ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܒܝܕ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܬܣܓܐ ܬܘܕܝܬܐ ܠܫܘܒܚܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
15 For, every thing is because of you, so that when Taybutha {Grace} abounds through many, there will be increased thanksgiving, unto The Praise of Alaha {God}.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܠܐ ܡܐܢܐ ܠܢ ܐܦܢ ܒܪܢܫܢ ܓܝܪ ܒܪܝܐ ܡܬܚܒܠ ܐܠܐ ܕܡܢ ܠܓܘ ܕܡܬܚܕܬ ܝܘܡ ܡܢ ܝܘܡ
16 Because of this, we are not to be weary, for, even if our outer son of
man is destroyed, yet, that one from within is renewed from day to day,

ܐܘܠܨܢܗ ܓܝܪ ܕܙܒܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܟܕ ܛܒ ܙܥܘܪ ܘܩܠܝܠ ܫܘܒܚܐ ܪܒܐ ܕܠܐ ܣܟܐ ܠܥܠܡ ܥܠܡܝܢ ܡܛܝܒ ܠܢ
17 for, the affliction of this time, while very little and light, prepares us for great glory, of no end, unto everlasting eternities.

ܕܠܐ ܚܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܒܗܠܝܢ ܕܡܬܚܙܝܢ ܐܠܐ ܒܗܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܚܙܝܢ ܕܡܬܚܙܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܙܒܢܐ ܐܢܝܢ ܕܠܐ
ܡܬܚܙܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܐܢܝܢ
18 On account of this, we are not rejoicing in these things which are seen, but rather, in those which are not seen, yet, that which is seen, is of time, but, that which isn’t seen, is that which is eternal.

Chapter 5
ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܢ ܒܝܬܢ ܕܒܐܪܥܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܦܓܪܐ ܢܫܬܪܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܒܢܝܢܐ ܕܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܝܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܒܥܒܕ ܐܝܕܝܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܠܥܠܡ
1 For, we know that if our house that is in the Earth, this, of our body, is destroyed, instead, there is for us a building that is from Alaha {God}, a house that isn’t made by hands; in the Shmaya {the Heavens}; eternal!

ܐܦ ܥܠ ܗܕܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܬܬܢܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܣܘܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܢܠܒܫ ܒܝܬܢ ܕܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ
2 For, also concerning this, we groan, and we are desirous to be clothed with our house that is from the Shmaya {the Heavens};

ܐܢ ܠܐ ܐܦ ܡܐ ܕܠܒܫܢ ܢܫܬܟܚ ܠܢ ܥܪܛܠ
3 but, even when it is, that we are clothed, we are found to be naked.

ܟܕ ܐܝܬܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܗܫܐ ܒܗܢܐ ܒܝܬܐ ܡܬܬܢܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܢ ܝܘܩܪܗ ܘܠܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܡܫܠܚܗ ܐܠܐ ܕܢܠܒܫ ܠܥܠ ܡܢܗ ܕܬܬܒܠܥ ܡܝܬܘܬܗ ܒܚܝܐ
4 For, while we are now in this house, we groan from its burden, and we are not desiring to take it off, but rather, that we might be clothed upon, so that death might be swallowed up by Life.

ܘܕܡܥܬܕ ܠܢ ܠܗ ܠܗܕܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܗܘ ܕܝܗܒ ܠܢ ܪܗܒܘܢܐ ܕܪܘܚܗ
5 And He who prepares us for this, is Alaha {God}; He who gave unto us The Deposit of Rukheh {His Spirit}.

ܡܛܠ ܕܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܘܡܦܣܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܟܡܐ ܕܒܦܓܪܐ ܫܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܥܢܝܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܢ ܡܪܢ
6 Therefore, because of this, we know and are persuaded that for as long as we shall dwell in this body, we are absent from Maran {Our Lord},

ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܡܗܠܟܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܠܐ ܒܚܙܝܐ
7 for, it is by Haymanutha {Faith} we are walking, and not by sight.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܬܟܝܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܡܣܘܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܢܥܢܕ ܡܢ ܦܓܪܐ ܘܢܗܘܐ ܠܘܬ ܡܪܢ
8 Because of this, we are confident, and we are desiring that we might be departing from the body, and to be with Maran {Our Lord},

ܘܡܬܚܦܛܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܐܢ ܥܢܘܕܐ ܚܢܢ ܘܐܢ ܥܡܘܪܐ ܠܗ ܗܘܝܢ ܫܦܪܝܢ
9 and we are admonished, that if we are absent, and if we are inhabiting, we are to be pleasing to Him.

ܟܠܢ ܓܝܪ ܥܬܝܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܡܩܡ ܩܕܡ ܒܝܡ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܢܬܦܪܥ ܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܒܦܓܪܗ ܡܕܡ ܕܥܒܝܕ ܠܗ ܐܢ ܕܛܒ ܘܐܢ ܕܒܝܫ
10 For, we all are destined to stand before The Judgment Seat of Meshikha {The Anointed One}, so that each nash {man} might be recompensed in his body, the thing that was done with it, if of good, and if of evil.

ܡܛܠ ܕܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܚܠܬܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܠܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܗܘ ܡܦܝܣܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܢ ܓܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܣܒܪ
ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܦ ܠܡܕܥܝܟܘܢ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܓܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ
11 Therefore, because we know the fear of Maran {Our Lord}, it is unto the sons of men we are persuading; but, unto Alaha {God} we are revealed, yet, I hope also that unto your own minds we are revealed.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܬܘܒ ܢܦܫܢ ܡܫܒܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܥܠܬܐ ܗܘ ܝܗܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܡܫܬܒܗܪܝܢ ܒܢ ܠܘܬ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܒܐܦܐ ܗܘ ܡܫܬܒܗܪܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܒܠܒܐ
12 For, again, we are not boasting our own souls unto you, but rather, we are giving unto you an opportunity to be boasting about us, unto those who are boasting in persons, and not in the heart.

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܫܛܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܢ ܬܩܢܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܟܘܢ
13 For, if we are acting foolishly, it is for Alaha {God}, and if we are acting properly, it is for you.

ܚܘܒܗ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܠܨ ܠܢ ܕܪܢܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܗܕܐ ܕܚܕ ܚܠܦ ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܡܝܬ ܡܕܝܢ ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܡܝܬ ܠܗ
14 For, The Love of Meshikha {The Anointed One} compels us that we are to think like this: That One died for every man, therefore, every man has died,

ܘܚܠܦ ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܗܘ ܡܝܬ ܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܚܝܝܢ ܠܐ ܠܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܢܚܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܠܗܘ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܥܠ ܐܦܝܗܘܢ ܡܝܬ ܘܩܡ
15 and He died in place of every man, so that those who are living wouldn’t live for their own souls {themselves}, but rather, for Him, who concerning their persons, had died, and was raised.

ܘܡܟܝܠ ܚܢܢ ܠܐܢܫ ܒܦܓܪ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܐܢ ܝܕܥܢ ܒܦܓܪ ܠܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܗܫܐ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ
16 And now, we don’t know a man in the body, and if we knew Meshikha {The Anointed One} in the body, yet, from now on, we don’t know Him.

ܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܒܪܝܬܐ ܗܘ ܚܕܬܐ ܥܬܝܩܬܐ ܥܒܪ ܠܗܝܢ
17 All those who are in Meshikha {The Anointed One}, therefore, are a New Creation, for the old has passed away,

ܘܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܗܘܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܕܪܥܝܢ ܠܗ ܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܢ ܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܬܪܥܘܬܐ
18 and every thing has become new from Alaha {God}, He who has reconciled us unto Himself, in Meshikha {The Anointed One}, and has given unto us The Theshmeshtha d’Tharutha {The Ministry of Reconciliation}.

ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܘ ܕܪܥܝ ܠܥܠܡܐ ܥܡ ܪܒܘܬܗ ܘܠܐ ܚܫܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܚܛܗܝܗܘܢ ܘܣܡ ܒܢ ܕܝܠܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܬܪܥܘܬܐ
19 For, Alaha {God} was in Meshikha {The Anointed One}; He who reconciled the world unto Himself, with His Priesthood, and didn’t count their sins unto them, and has placed in us, The Miltha d’Tharutha {The Word of Reconciliation}.

ܐܝܙܓܕܐ ܚܢܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܚܠܦ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܐܝܟ ܗܘ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܥܐ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܒܐܝܕܢ ܚܠܦ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܒܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܬܪܥܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ
20 We are Iyzgade {Ambassadors/Representatives} therefore, in place of Meshikha {The Anointed One}, and it is as though that Alaha {God} was pleading with you, through us. In place of Meshikha {The Anointed One} therefore, we plead with you: Be reconciled unto Alaha {God}!

ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܡܛܠܬܟܘܢ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܥܒܕܗ ܕܚܢܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܙܕܝܩܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
21 For, He who had not known sin, on our behalf was made sin, so that we would become, in Him, The Zadiykutha d’Alaha {The Righteousness of God}.


Chapter 6
ܘܐܝܟ ܡܥܕܪܢܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܬܣܬܪܩ ܒܟܘܢ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܩܒܠܬܘܢ
1 And as helpers, from you we ask, that The Taybutha d’Alaha {The Grace of God} that you have received, that it not be useless in you,

ܐܡܪ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܙܒܢܐ ܡܩܒܠܐ ܥܢܝܬܟ ܘܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܚܝܐ ܥܕܪܬܟ ܗܐ ܗܫܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܡܩܒܠܐ ܘܗܐ ܗܫܐ ܝܘܡܐ ܕܚܝܐ
2 for, He said that, “In an accepted time, I answered you, and in The Day
of Life, I helped you.” Behold! Now is the accepted time, and behold! Now is The Day of Life!

ܠܡܐ ܒܡܕܡ ܬܬܠܘܢ ܠܐܢܫ ܥܠܬܐ ܕܬܘܩܠܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܡܘܡܐ ܒܬܫܡܫܬܢ
3 In nothing be giving unto a man a cause of offense, so that there may not be a blemish in our Ministry.

ܐܠܐ ܒܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܢܚܘܐ ܢܦܫܢ ܕܡܫܡܫܢܐ ܚܢܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܡܣܝܒܪܢܘܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܒܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܒܐܢܢܩܘܣ ܒܚܒܘܫܝܐ
4 But, in every thing our souls are shown, that we are The Ministers of Alaha {God}; in much patience, in afflictions, in hardships, in imprisonments,

ܒܢܓܕܐ ܒܐܣܘܪܐ ܒܫܓܘܫܝܐ ܒܠܐܘܬܐ ܒܫܗܪܐ ܒܨܘܡܐ
5 in scourgings, in chains, in riots, in labor, in watching, in fasting,

ܒܕܟܝܘܬܐ ܒܝܕܥܬܐ ܒܢܓܝܪܘܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܒܒܣܝܡܘܬܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܒܚܘܒܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܟܠܐ
6 in purity, in knowledge, in a long suffering spirit, in kindness, in The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, in Love that is without deceit,

ܒܡܠܬܐ ܕܩܘܫܬܐ ܒܚܝܠܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܙܝܢܐ ܕܙܕܝܩܘܬܐ ܕܒܝܡܝܢܐ ܘܒܣܡܠܐ
7 in The Word of Truth, in The Power of Alaha {God}, in The Armor of Righteousness that is at the right and at the left,

ܒܫܘܒܚܐ ܘܒܨܥܪܐ ܒܩܘܠܣܐ ܘܒܓܘܢܝܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܛܥܝܢܐ ܘܫܪܝܪܐ
8 in glory and in disgrace, in praise and in insult; as deceivers, and yet true,

ܐܝܟ ܠܐ ܝܕܝܥܐ ܘܝܕܝܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܝܟ ܡܝܬܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܗܐ ܚܝܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܡܬܪܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܠܐ ܡܝܬܝܢ
ܚܢܢ
9 as not known, and yet well known; as though we are dying, and behold, we are living; as the ones being punished, and yet we are not dying;

ܐܝܟ ܕܟܪܝܐ ܠܢ ܘܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܚܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܝܟ ܡܣܟܢܐ ܘܠܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܥܬܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܡܕܡ ܠܝܬ ܠܢ
ܘܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܐܚܝܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ
10 as the ones who grieve for you, and yet we are always rejoicing; as poor men, and yet making many rich; as we who have nothing, and we possess every thing.

ܦܘܡܢ ܦܬܝܚ ܗܘ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܩܘܪܢܬܝܐ ܘܠܒܢ ܪܘܝܚ
11 Our mouth is open unto you, Qurinthaye {Corinthians}, and our heart is enlarged.

ܠܐ ܐܠܝܨܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܢ ܐܠܝܨܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܪܚܡܝܟܘܢ
12 You are not constrained by us, but you are constrained by your affections.

ܐܝܟ ܕܠܒܢܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܦܘܪܥܘܢܝ ܚܘܒܠܝ ܕܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܘܪܘܚܘ ܚܘܒܟܘܢ ܠܘܬܝ
13 Now, as that unto sons I speak: Be paying me back what you owe unto me, and enlarge your Love unto me.

ܘܠܐ ܬܗܘܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܙܘܓܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܐܝܕܐ ܓܝܪ ܫܘܬܦܘܬܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܙܕܝܩܘܬܐ ܥܡ ܥܘܠܐ ܐܘ ܐܝܢܐ ܚܘܠܛܢܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܢܗܝܪܐ ܥܡ ܚܫܘܟܐ
14 And don’t be sons joined to those who don’t believe, for, what fellowship has Righteousness, with the unrighteous, or what commingling has Light, with darkness?

ܐܘ ܐܝܕܐ ܫܠܡܘܬܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܡܫܝܚܐ ܥܡ ܣܛܢܐ ܐܘ ܐܝܕܐ ܡܢܬܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܥܡ ܕܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢ
15 Or, what peace has Meshikha {The Anointed One}, with satana {i.e. the adversary}? Or, what portion has The Believer, with those who don’t believe?

ܐܝܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܘܝܘܬܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܗܝܟܠܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܥܡ ܕܫܐܕܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܗܝܟܠܗ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܚܝܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܡܝܪ ܕܐܥܡܪ ܒܗܘܢ ܘܐܗܠܟ ܒܗܘܢ ܘܐܗܘܐ ܐܠܗܗܘܢ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܠܝ ܥܡܐ
16 But, what agreement has The Temple of Alaha {God}, with demons? But you, you are The Temple of The Living Alaha {God}, as which is said, that “I will dwell in them, and walk in them, and will be their Alaha {God}, and they will be unto Me an Ama {a People}.”

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܦܘܩܘ ܡܢ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ ܘܐܬܦܪܫܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܘܠܛܡܐܐ ܠܐ ܬܬܩܪܒܘܢ ܘܐܢܐ ܐܩܒܠܟܘܢ
17 On account of this: “Come out from among them, and distinguish yourself from them, says MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, and don’t come near to the unclean, and I will receive you.”

ܘܐܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܐܒܐ ܘܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܗܘܘܢ ܠܝ ܠܒܢܝܐ ܘܠܒܢܬܐ ܐܡܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܕܟܠ ܐܚܝܕ
18 And “I will be unto you for a Father, and you will be unto Me for Sons, and for Daughters, says MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, who holds all.”

Chapter 7
ܡܛܠ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܘܠܟܢܐ ܚܒܝܒܝ ܢܕܟܐ ܢܦܫܢ ܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܛܡܐܘܬܐ ܕܒܣܪܐ ܘܕܪܘܚܐ
ܘܢܦܠܘܚ ܩܕܝܫܘܬܐ ܒܕܚܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
1 Therefore, that because for us there are these promises, my beloved, let us be cleansing our souls from all impurity of the flesh, and of the spirit, and exercise holiness in the fear of Alaha {God}.

ܣܝܒܪܘܢ ܐܚܝܢ ܒܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܐܥܘܠܢ ܠܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܚܒܠܢ ܠܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܥܠܒܢ
2 Bear with us, Brothers; by no man we have harmed you; unto no man we have corrupted you; unto no man we have oppressed you.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܚܝܒܘܬܟܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܩܕܡܬ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪܬ ܕܒܠܒܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܡܬ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܘܠܡܚܐ
3 I don’t speak to be condemning, for, I spoke before that you are in our hearts, to die together, and to live.

ܦܪܗܣܝܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܘܣܓܝ ܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܒܟܘܢ ܫܘܒܗܪܐ ܘܡܠܐ ܐܢܐ ܒܘܝܐܐ ܘܣܘܓܐܐ ܡܬܝܬܪܐ ܒܝ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܒܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܘܠܨܢܝ
4 For, great is the boldness of speech I have towards you and great is the glorying in me for you, and I am full of encouragement, and great joy abounds in me through all our difficulties.

ܐܦ ܡܢ ܕܐܬܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܠܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܚܕ ܢܝܚ ܗܘܐ ܠܦܓܪܢ ܐܠܐ ܒܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܐܬܐܠܨܢ ܡܢ ܠܒܪ ܩܪܒܐ ܘܡܢ ܠܓܘ ܕܚܠܬܐ
5 For also, since coming unto the Maqedunaye {the Macedonians}, there was not even one rest for our bodies, but rather, in every thing we were distressed; from the outside; battle, and from inside; fear.

ܐܠܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܕܡܒܝܐ ܠܡܟܝܟܐ ܒܝܐܢ ܒܡܐܬܝܬܗ ܕܛܛܘܣ
6 But, Alaha {God}; He Who is encouraging to the humble,encouraged us by the coming of Titus,

ܘܠܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܒܡܐܬܝܬܗ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܒܢܝܚܗ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܬܢܝܚ ܒܟܘܢ ܣܒܪܢ ܓܝܪ ܥܠ ܚܘܒܟܘܢ ܕܠܘܬܢ ܘܥܠ ܐܒܠܟܘܢ ܘܛܢܢܟܘܢ ܕܥܠ ܐܦܝܢ ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܬ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܝ
7 and not only by his coming, but also by his refreshment with which he was refreshed by you, for, he declared unto us concerning your love that is toward us, and concerning your grief, and your zeal that concerns our persons; and when I heard it, for me there was great joy.

ܕܐܦܢ ܐܟܪܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܐܓܪܬܐ ܠܐ ܬܘܝܐ ܠܝ ܢܦܫܝ ܐܦܢ ܬܘܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܗܝ ܐܓܪܬܐ ܐܦܢ ܕܫܥܬܐ ܐܟܪܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ
8 Even if there was sorrow for you by the letter, I don’t regret it, even though my soul was regretful. For, I saw that the letter; even though for an hour, saddened you.

ܐܠܐ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܥܒܕܬ ܠܝ ܠܐ ܥܠ ܕܟܪܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܟܪܝܘܬܟܘܢ ܠܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܗܘ ܐܝܬܝܬܟܘܢ ܟܪܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܒܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܒܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܬܚܣܪܘܢ ܡܢܢ
9 But rather, it performed great joy for me; not concerning that you were grieving, but rather, because of that sorrow, He brought you unto repentance; for your sorrow was of Alaha {God}, in such a way that in nothing you have a lack from us.

ܟܪܝܘܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܛܠ ܐܠܗܐ ܬܘܬ ܢܦܫܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܠܐ ܗܦܟܐ ܘܡܦܢܝܐ ܠܚܝܐ ܟܪܝܘܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܡܘܬܐ ܗܘ ܥܒܕܐ
10 For, the sorrow that is on account of Alaha {God} produces repentance of the soul that doesn’t turn back, and returns us unto Life; yet, the sorrow of the world; it produces death.

ܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܕܐܬܬܥܝܩܬܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܐܠܗܐ ܟܡܐ ܐܥܒܕܬ ܒܟܘܢ ܚܦܝܛܘܬܐ ܘܡܦܩ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܘܪܘܓܙܐ ܘܕܚܠܬܐ ܘܚܘܒܐ ܘܛܢܢܐ ܘܬܒܥܬܐ ܘܒܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܚܘܝܬܘܢ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܕܕܟܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܗ ܒܨܒܘܬܐ
11 For, this which grieved you on account of Alaha {God}, behold, how much diligence it produced in you, and a defense in the spirit, and anger, and fear, and love, and zeal, and vengeance; and in every thing your souls are shown that they are purified in these things.

ܬܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܗܕܐ ܕܟܬܒܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܛܠ ܡܣܟܠܢܐ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܗܘ ܡܢ ܕܡܣܟܠ ܒܗ ܐܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܬܬܝܕܥ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܚܦܝܛܘܬܟܘܢ ܕܡܛܠܬܢ
12 Yet, it was for this that we wrote you; it was not because of the offender, not even because of he who was offended, but rather, on account that your diligence is known before Alaha {God}, on account of us.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܒܝܐܢ ܘܥܡ ܒܘܝܐܢ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܚܕܝܢ ܒܚܕܘܬܗ ܕܛܛܘܣ ܕܐܬܬܢܝܚܬ ܪܘܚܗ ܥܡ ܟܠܟܘܢ
13 Because of this, we are encouraged, and with our encouragement we are exceedingly rejoicing in the joy of Titus, because rukheh {his spirit} was refreshed with you all.

ܕܒܡܕܡ ܕܐܫܬܒܗܪܬ ܠܗ ܥܠ ܐܦܝܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܒܗܬܬ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܒܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܩܘܫܬܐ ܡܠܠܢ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܫܘܒܗܪܢ ܕܠܘܬ ܛܛܘܣ ܒܩܘܫܬܐ ܐܫܬܟܚ
14 So that in the thing which I boasted unto him concerning your persons, I wasn’t ashamed, but rather, as that every thing spoken concerning you was true with you, thus also, our boasting unto Titus was found to be in The Truth.

ܘܐܦ ܪܚܡܘܗܝ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܣܓܝܘ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܟܕ ܡܬܕܟܪ ܡܫܬܡܥܢܘܬܐ ܕܟܠܟܘܢ ܕܒܕܚܠܬܐ ܘܒܪܬܝܬܐ ܩܒܠܬܘܢܝܗܝ
15 And also his affections were abundantly multiplied concerning you, when he recalled the obedience of you all, that in fear and in trembling, you received him.

ܚܕܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܒܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܬܟܝܠ ܐܢܐ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ
16 I rejoice that in every thing I am confident concerning you.

Chapter 8
ܡܘܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܚܝܢ ܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܬܝܗܒܬ ܒܥܕܬܐ ܕܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ
1 But, we make known unto you, my Brothers, The Taybutheh d’Alaha {The Grace of God} which is given unto The Edatha {The Assemblies} of the Maqedunaye {the Macedonians},

ܕܒܒܘܩܝܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܕܐܘܠܨܢܗܘܢ ܝܬܝܪܘܬܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܚܕܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܥܘܡܩܐ ܕܡܣܟܢܘܬܗܘܢ ܐܬܝܬܪ ܒܥܘܬܪܐ ܕܦܫܝܛܘܬܗܘܢ
2 of which, with regard to their great trial, because of their affliction, there was an increase to their joy, and the depth of their poverty was exceeded by the riches of their generosity.

ܣܗܕ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܝܟ ܚܝܠܗܘܢ ܘܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܚܝܠܗܘܢ ܒܨܒܝܢ ܢܦܫܗܘܢ
3 For, I testify, that according to their power, and greater than their power, in the desire of their soul,

ܒܥܘ ܡܢܢ ܒܒܥܘܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܕܢܫܬܘܬܦܘܢ ܒܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܕܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܩܕܝܫܐ
4 they sought, with many prayers, that they might be partners in The Taybutha {The Grace} of The Ministry of The Qadishe {The Holy Ones}.

ܘܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܣܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܐܠܐ ܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܐܫܠܡܘ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܠܡܪܢ ܘܐܦ ܠܢ ܒܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
5 And not like what we had expected, but rather, they gave their souls, first unto Maran {Our Lord}, and also unto us, in the will of Alaha {God},

ܕܚܢܢ ܢܒܥܐ ܡܢ ܛܛܘܣ ܕܐܝܟ ܕܫܪܝ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܫܠܡ ܒܟܘܢ ܐܦ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܗܕܐ
6 so that we asked from Titus, that as he had begun thus, he would complete this Taybutha {Grace} also among you.

ܐܠܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܒܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܡܬܝܬܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܒܡܠܬܐ ܘܒܝܕܥܬܐ ܘܒܟܠ ܚܦܝܛܘ ܘܒܚܘܒܢ ܕܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܒܗܕܐ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܬܬܝܬܪܘܢ
7 But, as that in every thing, you have abundance: In Faith, and in The Word, and in Knowledge, and in all Zeal, and in our Love that is toward you; thus also in this Taybutha {Grace}, you have abundance.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܦܩܕ ܦܩܕ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܒܚܦܝܛܘܬܐ ܕܚܒܪܝܟܘܢ ܫܪܪܐ ܕܚܘܒܟܘܢ ܡܢܣܐ ܐܢܐ
8 It is not to be commanding, that I command you, but rather, with regard to the zeal of your companionship, the truth of your love, I test.

ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܡܛܠܬܟܘܢ ܐܬܡܣܟܢ ܟܕ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܥܬܝܪܐ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܡܣܟܢܘܬܗ ܬܥܬܪܘܢ
9 For, you know The Taybutheh d’Maran Eshu Meshikha {The Grace of Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}; who, because of you, was made poor, although He was rich, so that you, by His poverty, might become rich.

ܡܡܠܟ ܕܝܢ ܡܠܟ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܕܐ ܕܡܥܕܪܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܢ ܐܫܬܩܕܝ ܫܪܝܬܘܢ ܠܘ ܠܡܨܒܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܠܡܥܒܕ
10 But, advising you, I give counsel unto you; this which is helpful to you; Because, that from last year you had begun, not only to desire, but, to also do it.

ܗܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܫܠܡܘ ܒܥܒܕܐ ܗܘ ܡܕܡ ܕܨܒܝܬܘܢ ܕܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܣܘܘܚܐ ܠܡܨܒܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܒܥܒܕܐ ܬܫܠܡܘܢ ܡܢ ܡܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ
11 Yet now, accomplish in deed that thing which you desired, that as there was eagerness to desire, thus in deed accomplish it, from what there is for you.

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܨܒܝܢܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܗܟܘܬ ܡܬܩܒܠ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܠܝܬ ܠܗ
12 For, if the desire is there, as to what there is for you; in the same way do not be receiving, as to that which is not for you.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܐܚܪܢܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܪܘܚܬܐ ܘܠܟܘܢ ܐܘܠܨܢܐ
13 For, it isn’t that there is to be relief unto others, and unto you hardship,

ܐܠܐ ܒܫܘܝܘܬܐ ܗܘܘ ܒܙܒܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܝܬܝܪܘܬܟܘܢ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܬܗܘܐ ܠܚܣܝܪܘܬܗܘܢ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܦ ܝܬܝܪܘܬܗܘܢ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܬܗܘܐ ܠܚܣܝܪܘܬܟܘܢ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܫܘܝܘܬܐ
14 but rather, you are in this time, in equality; so that your own abundance might be for their lack, so that also, those abundances might be for your own lack, that there might be equality.

ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܗܘ ܕܐܣܓܝ ܫܩܠ ܠܐ ܐܬܝܬܪ ܠܗ ܘܗܘ ܕܩܠܝܠ ܫܩܠ ܠܐ ܐܬܒܨܪ ܠܗ
15 According to that which is written; that “He who took up much, had no leftovers and for those who took up little, had no less.”

ܛܝܒܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܗܒܗ ܚܦܝܛܘܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܚܠܦܝܟܘܢ ܒܠܒܗ ܕܛܛܘܣ
16 But, thanks be unto Alaha {God}, who gave this zeal into the heart of Titus,

ܒܥܘܬܢ ܓܝܪ ܩܒܠ ܘܡܛܠ ܕܛܒ ܒܛܝܠ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܢܦܩ ܨܐܕܝܟܘܢ
17 for, he accepted our petition, and because of His great concern, he went out unto you, from His own desire.

ܫܕܪܢ ܕܝܢ ܥܡܗ ܐܦ ܠܐܚܘܢ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܬܫܒܘܚܬܗ ܒܐܘܢܓܠܝܘܢ ܒܟܠܗܝܢ ܥܕܬܐ
18 Yet, we also sent with him, our Brother; whose praise in The Evangeliun {The Good Message} is in all The Edatha {The Assemblies}.

ܗܟܢܐ ܕܐܦ ܡܓܒܐ ܓܒܐ ܡܢ ܥܕܬܐ ܕܢܦܘܩ ܥܡܢ ܒܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܡܫܬܡܫܐ ܡܢܢ ܠܫܘܒܚܗ ܕܝܠܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܠܘܒܒܢ ܕܝܠܢ
19 Such a one, who is chosen, selected from The Edatha {The Assemblies}, who is sent out with this Taybutha {Grace} that is Ministered from us, unto Alaha’s {God’s} own Glory, and for our own encouragement.

ܩܢܝܛܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܗܕܐ ܕܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܢܣܝܡ ܒܢ ܡܘܡܐ ܒܗܕܐ ܪܒܘܬܐ ܕܡܫܬܡܫܐ ܡܢܢ
20 Yet, we are cautious in this, so that no man might put upon us a blemish in this abundance that is Ministered from us.

ܝܨܝܦܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܫܦܝܪܬܐ ܠܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܩܕܡ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ
21 Yet, we are careful of the good, not before Alaha {God} only, but also before the sons of men.

ܫܕܪܢ ܕܝܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܐܦ ܠܐܚܘܢ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܠܢ ܒܩܐ ܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܒܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܕܚܦܝܛܐ ܗܘ ܗܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܚܦܝܛ ܒܬܘܟܠܢܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܕܥܠܝܟܘܢ
22 But, we are also sending our Brother with them, who, unto us, was always tested in many things, that he is diligent, but now, especially diligent, by the great confidence that he has concerning you.

ܐܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܛܛܘܣ ܫܘܬܦܐ ܗܘ ܕܝܠܝ ܘܡܥܕܪܢܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܘܐܢ ܐܚܝܢ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܥܕܬܐ ܕܫܘܒܚܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ
23 If therefore Titus is asked about, he is my own assistant and helper among you, and if our other Brothers; they are The Shlikhe d’Edatha {The Sent Ones of The Assemblies}, which are The Shubkheh d’Meshikha {The Glory of The Anointed One}.

ܡܟܝܠ ܬܚܘܝܬܐ ܕܚܘܒܟܘܢ ܘܫܘܒܗܪܢ ܕܒܟܘܢ ܒܗܘܢ ܚܘܘ ܒܦܪܨܘܦ ܥܕܬܐ ܟܠܗܝܢ
24 From now on, demonstrate that Love which is in you, and show The Glory among the persons of all The Edatha {The Assemblies}.

Chapter 9
ܥܠ ܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܩܕܝܫܐ ܝܬܝܪ ܐܝܬ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܐܢ ܟܬܒ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ
1 But, if I write unto you concerning The Ministry of The Qadishe {The Holy Ones}, I act excessively.

ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܛܘܝܒܗ ܕܪܥܝܢܟܘܢ ܘܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܫܬܒܗܪܬ ܒܟܘܢ ܠܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܕܐܟܐܝܐ ܥܬܝܕܐ ܗܝ ܡܢ ܐܫܬܩܕܝ ܘܛܢܢܐ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܠܣܓܝܐܐ ܓܪܓ
2 For, I know the readiness of your mind, and because of this, I boasted with regard to you, unto the Maqedunaye {the Macedonians}, that Akaia was prepared since a year ago, and your own zeal was encouraging unto many.

ܫܕܪܬ ܕܝܢ ܠܐܚܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܣܬܪܩ ܫܘܒܗܪܢ ܕܐܫܬܒܗܪܢ ܒܟܘܢ ܥܠ ܗܕܐ ܨܒܘܬܐ ܕܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܡܪܬ ܬܗܘܘܢ ܡܛܝܒܝܢ
3 Yet, I sent The Brothers unto you, so that our boasting, which we boasted with regard to you, concerning this matter, is not vain, so that as I said; you might be prepared,

ܕܠܡܐ ܢܐܬܘܢ ܥܡܝ ܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܘܢܫܟܚܘܢܟܘܢ ܟܕ ܠܐ ܥܬܝܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܢܒܗܬ ܚܢܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܐܡܪ
ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܒܗܬܘܢ ܒܫܘܒܗܪܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܫܬܒܗܪܢ
4 that by chance the Maqedunaye {the Macedonians} might come with me, and find you when you are not prepared, and we be ashamed (that is not to say that you also would be ashamed), in the boasting which we have boasted.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܒܛܠ ܠܝ ܕܐܒܥܐ ܡܢ ܐܚܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܢܐܬܘܢ ܩܕܡܝ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܘܢܥܬܕܘܢ ܒܘܪܟܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܐܫܬܡܥܬܘܢ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܡܛܝܒܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܝܟ ܒܘܪܟܬܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܝܥܢܘܬܐ
5 Because of this, I am concerned for you, so that I ask from these, my Brothers, that they would come unto you, ahead of me, and prepare The Blessing, which you formerly heard from me, that it should be prepared thus as a blessing, not being according to covetousness.

ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܕܙܪܥ ܒܚܘܣܢܐ ܐܦ ܒܚܘܣܢܐ ܚܨܕ ܘܡܢ ܕܙܪܥ ܒܒܘܪܟܬܐ ܐܦ ܒܒܘܪܟܬܐ ܢܚܨܘܕ
6 Now, I say this: That he who sows in moderation, also reaps in moderation, and that he who sows in blessing, also reaps in blessing.

ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܪܥܝܢܗ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܡܢ ܟܪܝܘܬܐ ܐܘ ܐܝܟ ܕܡܢ ܩܛܝܪܐ ܠܝܗܘܒܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܚܕܝܐ ܪܚܡ ܐܠܗܐ
7 Every man according to what is in his mind, not being according to what is from sorrow, or according to what is from force, for, unto those who give joyfully, Alaha {God} loves.

ܡܛܝܐ ܗܝ ܓܝܪ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܐܠܗܐ ܟܠ ܛܝܒܘ ܕܢܝܬܪ ܒܟܘܢ ܕܒܟܠ ܙܒܢ ܒܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܗܘ ܡܐ ܕܣܦܩ ܠܟܘܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܬܬܝܬܪܘܢ ܒܟܠ ܥܒܕ ܛܒ
8 For, it comes into Alaha’s {God’s} hands, that all taybu {good things} might remain in you, so that always, in every thing, that what is sufficient for you, might be unto you, and you remain in every good work,

ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܒܕܪ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܡܣܟܢܐ ܘܙܕܝܩܘܬܗ ܩܝܡܐ ܠܥܠܡ
9 according to what is written, that “He dispersed, and gave unto the poor, and His Righteousness endures unto forever.”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܗܒ ܙܪܥܐ ܠܙܪܘܥܐ ܘܠܚܡܐ ܠܡܐܟܘܠܬܐ ܗܘ ܢܬܠ ܘܢܣܓܐ ܙܪܥܟܘܢ ܘܢܪܒܐ ܦܐܪܐ
ܕܙܕܝܩܘܬܟܘܢ
10 Now, He who gives seed unto the sower, and bread for food; He gives and multiplies your seed, and increases the fruits of your righteousness,

ܕܒܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܬܥܬܪܘܢ ܒܟܠܗ ܦܫܝܛܘܬܐ ܕܗܝ ܓܡܪܐ ܒܐܝܕܢ ܬܘܕܝܬܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ
11 so that in every thing, you might be enriched in all liberality that is perfected through thanksgiving unto Alaha {God}.

ܡܛܠ ܕܦܘܠܚܢܐ ܕܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܚܣܝܪܘܬܐ ܕܩܕܝܫܐ ܡܡܠܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܡܝܬܪ ܒܬܘܕܝܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ
12 Because of the work of this Ministry, not only is the need of The Qadishe {The Holy Ones} fulfilled, but also, abounding in much praise unto Alaha {God}.

ܡܛܠ ܒܘܩܝܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܡܫܒܚܝܢ ܕܐܫܬܥܒܕܬܘܢ ܠܬܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܣܒܪܬܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܐܫܬܘܬܦܬܘܢ ܒܦܫܝܛܘܬܟܘܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܥܡ ܟܠ ܐܢܫ
13 For, because of the demonstration of this Ministry unto Alaha {God}, which you have submitted yourselves, unto the confession of The Sabartheh d’Meshikha {The Hopeful Message of The Anointed One}, and sharing in your liberality with them, and with every man,

ܘܨܠܘܬܐ ܡܩܪܒܝܢ ܚܠܦܝܟܘܢ ܒܚܘܒܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܛܠ ܣܘܓܐܐ ܕܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܥܠܝܟܘܢ
14 and they offer up prayers for you in much love, because of the abundance of The Taybutheh d’Alaha {The Grace of God} that is upon you.

ܛܝܒܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܥܠ ܡܘܗܒܬܗ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܡܠܠܐ
15 But, thanks be unto Alaha {God}, concerning His Gift that is unspeakable!

Chapter 10
ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܒܢܝܚܘܬܗ ܘܒܡܟܝܟܘܬܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܐܦܢ ܒܐܦܝܢ ܡܟܝܟ ܐܢܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܟܕ ܪܚܝܩ ܐܢܐ ܬܟܝܠ ܐܢܐ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ
1 Now I, Paulus; I ask from you in the gentleness and in the meekness of Meshikha {The Anointed One}, which, even if I am meek toward you in your presence, rather, when I am distant, I am bold concerning you.

ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܐ ܕܐܬܝܬ ܐܬܐܠܨ ܒܬܘܟܠܢܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܕܐܫܝܚ ܐܝܟ ܕܡܬܪܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܥܠ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܚܫܒܝܢ ܠܢ ܕܐܝܟ ܕܒܒܣܪ ܡܗܠܟܝܢ ܚܢܢ
Now, I ask from you, that when I come, I should not be forced by the boldness that there is for me, to be daring, as I think, toward the man who thinks that we walk according to the flesh.

ܐܦܢ ܒܒܣܪ ܓܝܪ ܡܗܠܟܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܠܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܒܣܪܐ ܦܠܚܝܢ ܕܚܢܢ
3 For, even if we are walking in the flesh, rather, our warfare isn’t of the flesh,

ܙܝܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܦܠܚܘܬܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܒܣܪܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܚܝܠܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܗ ܟܒܫܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܚܣܢܐ ܡܪܝܕܐ
4 for, The Armory of our militant service isn’t of the flesh, but rather, of The Khayla d’Alaha {The Power of God}, and in it, we overcome rebellious strongholds,

ܘܣܬܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܚܫܒܬܐ ܘܟܠ ܪܘܡܐ ܕܡܬܬܪܝܡ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܝܕܥܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܫܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܟܠ ܬܪܥܝܢ
ܠܡܫܡܥܬܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ
5 and we pull down thoughts, and every high place that is lifted up against The Knowledge of Alaha {God}, and we take captive all imaginations unto The Obedience of Meshikha {The Anointed One},

ܘܡܛܝܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܬܒܥܬܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܫܬܡܥܝܢ ܡܐ ܕܐܬܡܠܝܬ ܡܫܬܡܥܢܘܬܟܘܢ
6 and we are preparing to effect vindication from those who don’t obey, when what is for our obedience is completed.

ܒܦܪܨܘܦܐ ܚܝܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܬܟܝܠ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܕܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܘ ܗܢܐ ܢܕܥ ܡܢ ܢܦܫܗ ܕܐܝܟ ܕܗܘ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܘ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܚܢܢ
7 Are you looking at appearances? If a man is confident concerning his soul; that he is of Meshikha {The Anointed One}, he would know this, from his soul; that as he is of Meshikha {The Anointed One}, that thus we also are.

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܦ ܡܕܡ ܝܬܝܪ ܐܫܬܒܗܪ ܥܠ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܕܝܗܒ ܠܝ ܡܪܢ ܠܐ ܒܗܬ ܐܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܒܢܝܢܟܘܢ ܗܘ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܝܗܒ ܠܢ ܘܠܐ ܠܣܘܚܦܟܘܢ
8 For, if I also boast something more, concerning The Authority which Maran {Our Lord} gave unto me, I wouldn’t be ashamed, on account that it is given for your own edification, and not for your destruction.

ܡܗܡܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܐܣܬܒܪ ܐܝܟ ܗܘ ܕܡܕܚܠܘ ܡܕܚܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܐܓܪܬܝ
9 Yet, I forbear, that it not be considered as that through fear I am threatening unto you, with my letters,

ܡܛܠ ܕܐܝܬ ܐܢܫܐ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܐܓܪܬܐ ܝܩܝܪܢ ܘܚܣܝܢܢ ܡܐܬܝܗ ܕܝܢ ܕܓܘܫܡܐ ܟܪܝܗ ܘܡܠܬܗ ܫܝܛܐ
10 on account that there are men who are saying that, “The letters are heavy and strong, but, his presence of body weak, and his speech contemptible.”

ܐܠܐ ܗܕܐ ܢܬܪܥܐ ܡܢ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܕܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܝܬܝܢ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܓܪܬܢ ܟܕ ܪܚܝܩܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܝܬܝܢ ܐܦ ܡܐ ܕܩܪܝܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܒܥܒܕܐ
11 But, those who think thus; let them affirm that as we are in the word of our letter, when distant, thus also are we when near, in deed.

ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܡܪܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܢܚܫܘܒ ܐܘ ܕܢܦܚܡ ܢܦܫܢ ܥܡ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܫܒܗܪܝܢ ܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܒܗܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܦܚܡܝܢ ܠܐ ܡܣܬܟܠܝܢ
12 For, we do not dare that we should regard, or that we should compare our souls with those who are glorifying their souls, but, because they, with themselves are comparing unto themselves; they don’t understand.

ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܬܒܗܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܡܫܘܚܬܢ ܐܠܐ ܒܡܫܘܚܬܐ ܕܬܚܘܡܐ ܕܦܠܓ ܠܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܢܡܛܐ ܐܦ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ
13 But, we do not boast more than our measure, but rather, in the measure of our limit which Alaha {God} has distributed unto us, so that we might come even as far as unto you.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܟ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܡܛܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܡܬܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܢܦܫܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܡܛܝܢ ܒܣܒܪܬܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ
14 For, it isn’t like we cannot come towards you, that we extend our souls, for, we came unto you with The Sabartheh d’Meshikha {The Hopeful Message of The Anointed One},

ܘܠܐ ܡܫܬܒܗܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܫܘܚܬܢ ܒܥܡܠܐ ܕܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܣܒܪܐ ܕܟܕ ܪܒܝܐ
ܗܝܡܢܘܬܟܘܢ ܒܟܘܢ ܢܬܪܘܪܒ ܐܝܟ ܡܫܘܚܬܢ ܘܢܬܝܬܪ
15 and we don’t boast beyond the reach from our measure, in the labor of others, but there is hope for us, that when your Faith has increased, in you we will be increased, according to our measure, and abound;

ܐܦ ܠܗܠ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܠܡܣܒܪܘ ܠܐ ܒܡܫܘܚܬܐ ܕܐܚܪܢܐ ܒܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܬܩܢܢ ܢܫܬܒܗܪ
16 even to Declare unto those far off from you. Not boasting in the measure of others, with regard to those who are established,

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܫܬܒܗܪ ܒܡܪܝܐ ܢܫܬܒܗܪ
17 but: “He who boasts, will boast in MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}.”

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܢ ܕܢܦܫܗ ܡܫܒܚ ܗܘ ܗܘ ܒܩܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܢܫܒܚܝܘܗܝ
18 For, it isn’t he who praises his own soul who is approved, but he whom MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} will praise.

Chapter 11
ܐܫܬܘܦ ܕܝܢ ܡܣܝܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܩܠܝܠ ܕܐܡܠܠ ܦܟܝܗܐܝܬ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܡܣܝܒܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܗܘ ܠܝ
1 But, I would that you were bearing with me for a little while, so that I might speak foolishly; yet, you also are bearing with me,

ܛܐܢ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܟܘܢ ܒܛܢܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܟܪܬܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܒܬܘܠܬܐ ܕܟܝܬܐ ܕܐܩܪܒ ܠܡܫܝܚܐ
2 for, I am zealous among you with The Tanana d’Alaha {The Zeal of God}, for, you are betrothed unto One Husband; in a virginity which is pure; so that you might come near unto Meshikha {The Anointed One}.

ܕܚܠ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܡܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܛܥܝ ܚܘܝܐ ܠܚܘܐ ܒܢܟܝܠܘܬܗ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܬܚܒܠܘܢ ܪܥܝܢܝܟܘܢ ܡܢ
ܦܫܝܛܘܬܐ ܕܠܘܬ ܡܫܝܚܐ
3 But, I fear, that perhaps as that deceiving serpent was unto Khawa {Eve}, in deceptiveness, thus so, might corrupt your minds from the simplicity that is toward Meshikha {The Anointed One},

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܟܪܙ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܚܢܢ ܠܐ ܐܟܪܙܢ ܐܘ ܪܘܚܐ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܢܣܒܬܘܢ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܣܒܬܘܢ ܐܘ ܣܒܪܬܐ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܠܐ ܩܒܠܬܘܢ ܫܦܝܪ ܡܬܛܦܝܣܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ
4 for, if he who comes unto you proclaims another “eshu” {Y’shu} unto you, whom I haven’t Proclaimed, or you receive another “rukha” {spirit}, which you didn’t receive, or another “hopeful message”, which you didn’t receive, you might well be persuaded.

ܪܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܒܨܪܬ ܡܢ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܛܒ ܡܝܬܪܝܢ
5 For, I consider that I am not less than The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, who most excel.

ܐܦܢ ܓܝܪ ܒܘܪܐ ܐܢܐ ܒܡܠܬܝ ܐܠܐ ܬܐ ܒܝܕܥܬܝ ܐܠܐ ܒܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܐܬܓܠܝܢ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ
6 For, even if I am unskilled in words, yet, not in knowledge, moreover, in every thing we are revealed unto you.

ܐܘ ܕܠܡܐ ܡܣܟܠܘ ܐܣܟܠܬ ܕܡܟܟܬ ܢܦܫܝ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܬܪܝܡܘܢ ܘܡܓܢ ܐܟܪܙܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܣܒܪܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
7 Or perhaps, offending, I had offended you, because I humbled my soul, so that you might be exalted, and freely proclaimed unto you The Sabartheh d’Alaha {The Hopeful Message of God}?

ܘܥܕܬܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܚܠܨܬ ܘܢܣܒܬ ܢܦܩܬܐ ܠܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ
8 And also, I plundered other Edatha {Assemblies}, and took expense for your own Ministry.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܝܬ ܨܐܕܝܟܘܢ ܘܚܣܪ ܠܝ ܠܐ ܝܩܪܬ ܥܠ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܣܢܝܩܘܬܝ ܓܝܪ ܡܠܝܘ ܐܚܐ ܕܐܬܘ ܡܢ ܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܘܒܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܢܛܪܬ ܢܦܫܝ ܘܢܛܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܐܩܪ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ
9 And when I came near towards you, and there was lack for me, I wasn’t a burden concerning a man from you; for my need, The Brothers who came from the Maqedunaye {the Macedonians}, filled, and in every thing I kept my soul, and will keep it, so that I am not a burden concerning you.

ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܒܝ ܫܪܪܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܗܢܐ ܫܘܒܗܪܐ ܠܐ ܢܬܒܛܠ ܒܝ ܒܐܬܪܘܬܐ ܕܐܟܐܝܐ
10 There is in me The Shrareh d’Meshikha {The Truth of The Anointed One}, that this boasting will not cease in me in the regions of Akaia.

ܠܡܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܡܚܒ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܝܕܥ
11 For what? Because I don’t have love for you? Alaha {God}, He knows.

ܐܠܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܐܦ ܐܥܒܕ ܕܐܦܣܘܩ ܗܘ ܥܠܬܗܘܢ ܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܥܝܢ ܥܠܬܐ ܕܒܗܘ ܡܕܡ
ܕܡܫܬܒܗܪܝܢ ܢܫܬܟܚܘܢ ܐܟܘܬܢ
12 But, this which I do, I even will do, so that I might cut off that opportunity of those who are seeking an opportunity, so that in that thing which they are boasting, they may be found as we are.

ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܕܓܠܐ ܘܦܥܠܐ ܢܟܝܠܐ ܘܡܕܡܝܢ ܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܠܫܠܝܚܐ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ
13 For, these are false shlikhe {sent ones}, and deceitful workers, and comparing their souls to The Shlikhe d’Meshikha {The Sent Ones of The Anointed One};

ܘܠܝܬ ܠܡܬܕܡܪܘ ܒܗܕܐ ܐܢ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܣܛܢܐ ܡܬܕܡܐ ܒܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܢܘܗܪܐ
14 and there is nothing to be surprised about, for, if it is that satana is compared with a Malaka d’Nuhra {a Heavenly Messenger of Light},

ܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܪܒܐ ܨܒܘܬܐ ܐܢ ܐܦ ܡܫܡܫܢܘܗܝ ܡܬܕܡܝܢ ܒܡܫܡܫܢܐ ܕܙܕܝܩܘܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܚܪܬܗܘܢ ܬܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܥܒܕܝܗܘܢ
15 it isn’t a great thing if his ministers are also compared unto The Ministers of Righteousness; those whose end will be according to their works.

ܬܘܒ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܡܐ ܐܢܫ ܢܣܒܪ ܥܠܝ ܐܝܟ ܕܣܟܠܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܢ ܠܐ ܐܦܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܠܣܟܠܐ ܩܒܠܘܢܝ ܕܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܩܠܝܠ ܐܫܬܒܗܪ
16 Yet, I say again: Why would a nash {man} think concerning me as one who is foolish? If I am not, receive me even as that like a fool, so that I also might boast a little.

ܡܕܡ ܕܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܪܢ ܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܒܦܟܝܗܘܬܐ ܒܗܕܐ ܕܘܟܬܐ ܕܫܘܒܗܪܐ
17 The thing which I speak isn’t being spoken by Maran {Our Lord}, but I, as of by foolishness, in this place of boasting,

ܡܛܠ ܕܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܫܬܒܗܪܝܢ ܒܒܣܪܐ ܘܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܐܫܬܒܗܪ
18 because that many boast in the flesh, and I also boast.

ܡܢܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܠܡܫܬܡܥܘ ܠܚܣܝܪܝ ܪܥܝܢܐ ܟܕ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܚܟܝܡܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ
19 For, you are content to listen to deficient minds, while you, you are wise,

ܘܡܬܕܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܢ ܕܡܫܥܒܕ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܠܡܢ ܕܐܟܠ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܠܡܢ ܕܢܣܒ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܘܠܡܢ ܕܡܬܬܪܝܡ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܘܠܡܢ ܕܡܚܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܥܠ ܐܦܝܟܘܢ
20 and you adhere unto him who enslaves you, and unto him who consumes you, and unto him who takes from you, and unto him who is exalted over you, and unto him who strikes you upon your faces.

ܐܝܟ ܕܒܨܥܪܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܐܝܟ ܗܘ ܕܚܢܢ ܡܚܝܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܗܘ ܒܚܣܝܪܘܬ ܪܥܝܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܒܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܡܡܪܚ ܐܢܫ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܡܡܪܚ ܐܢܐ
21 I speak as one in disgrace; I speak as though we were weak by deficiency of mind, because in every thing that a man will dare, I, even I dare.

ܐܢ ܥܒܪܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܘܐܢ ܐܝܣܪܠܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܐܢ ܙܪܥܗ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ
22 If they are Ebraye {Hebrews}, I am also; and if they are Isralaye
{Israelis}, I am also; if they are the seed of Abraham, I am also.

23 If they are Mashamshane d’Meshikha {Ministers of The Anointed One} (I speak in deficiency of mind), I am more so than them! In labor, more so than them; in wounds, more so than them; in chains, more so than them; in deaths, many times.

ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܚܡܫ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܚܣܝܪ ܚܕܐ ܒܠܥܬ
24 From the Yehudaye {the Judeans}, beaten five times, forty lashes minus one.

ܬܠܬ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܒܫܒܛܐ ܐܬܢܓܕܬ ܚܕܐ ܙܒܢ ܐܬܪܓܡܬ ܬܠܬ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܗܘܝܬ ܢܘܘܓܐ ܐܝܡܡܐ ܘܠܠܝܐ ܕܠܐ ܣܦܝܢܬܐ ܒܝܡܐ ܗܘܝܬ
25 Struck with rods three times, stoned one time, was shipwrecked three times, was in the yama {the sea} a day and a night, without a ship;

ܒܐܘܪܚܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܒܩܢܕܝܢܘܣ ܕܢܗܪܘܬܐ ܒܩܢܕܝܢܘܣ ܕܓܝܣܐ ܒܩܢܕܝܢܘܣ ܕܡܢ ܛܘܗܡܝ ܒܩܢܕܝܢܘܣ ܕܡܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܒܩܢܕܝܢܘܣ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܒܩܢܕܝܢܘܣ ܗܘܝܬ ܒܚܘܪܒܐ ܒܩܢܕܝܢܘܣ ܒܝܡܐ ܒܩܢܕܝܢܘܣ ܕܡܢ ܐܚܐ ܕܓܠܐ
26 in journeys, many; in danger of rivers; in danger of robbers; in
danger from my kinfolk; in danger from the Amme {the Gentiles}; in danger in the city, being in danger in the desert; in danger in the yama {the sea}; in danger from false brothers;

ܒܥܡܠܐ ܘܒܠܐܘܬܐ ܒܫܗܪܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܒܟܦܢܐ ܘܒܨܗܝܐ ܒܨܘܡܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܒܥܪܝܐ ܘܒܥܪܛܠܝܘܬܐ
27 in labor and in weariness; in watching, much; in hunger and in thirst; in fasting, much; in the cold and in nakedness;

ܣܛܪ ܡܢ ܝܬܝܪܬܐ ܘܟܢܘܫܝܐ ܕܥܠܝ ܕܟܠܝܘܡ ܘܨܦܬܝ ܕܥܠ ܐܦܝ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܥܕܬܐ
28 more aside from these; and the gathering who are about me daily, and my concern that is concerning all the persons of The Edatha {The Assemblies}.

ܡܢܘ ܡܬܟܪܗ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܬܟܪܗ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܘ ܡܬܟܫܠ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܐ ܝܩܕ ܐܢܐ
29 Who is sick, and I, I am not sick? Who is offended, and I, I am not burned?

ܐܢ ܠܡܫܬܒܗܪܘ ܘܠܐ ܒܟܘܪܗܢܝ ܐܫܬܒܗܪ
30 And if it is proper to boast in my weaknesses, I will boast.

ܝܕܥ ܗܘ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܒܘܗܝ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܒܪܟܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܥܠܡܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܟܕܒ ܐܢܐ
31 Alaha Abuhe d’Maran Eshu Meshikha {God, The Father of Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}, who is blessed unto everlasting eternities; He knows that I’m not lying!

ܒܕܪܡܣܘܩ ܪܒ ܚܝܠܐ ܕܐܪܛܘܣ ܡܠܟܐ ܢܛܪ ܗܘܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܕܪܡܘܣܩܝܐ ܠܡܐܚܕܢܝ
32 In Darmsuq {Damascus}, the General of the forces of Aretus, the King, was guarding the city of the Darmusqaye, to seize me,

ܘܡܢ ܟܘܬܐ ܒܣܪܝܓܬܐ ܫܒܘܢܝ ܡܢ ܫܘܪܐ ܘܐܬܦܠܛܬ ܡܢ ܐܝܕܘܗܝ
33 and from a window, in a basket, I descended from the wall, and escaped from his hands!

Chapter 12
ܠܡܫܬܒܗܪܘ ܘܠܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܐ ܦܩܚ ܐܬܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܝ ܓܝܪ ܠܚܙܘܢܐ ܘܠܓܠܝܢܘܗܝ ܕܡܪܢ
1 To boast is right, but, not best; for, I will proceed now unto visions, and unto revelations of Maran {Our Lord}.

ܝܕܥܢܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܢ ܩܕܡ ܐܪܒܥܣܪܐ ܫܢܝܢ ܐܢ ܒܦܓܪ ܕܝܢ ܘܐܢ ܕܠܐ ܦܓܪ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܝܕܥ ܕܐܬܚܛܦ ܗܘ ܗܢܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܬܘܠܬܐ ܫܡܝܐ
2 I know a gabra {a man} in Meshikha {The Anointed One} from before fourteen years ago, but, if in a body, and if not a body, I don’t know, Alaha {God}, He knows; He who snatched this one away up unto the third Shmaya {Heavens}.

ܘܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܐܢ ܒܦܓܪ ܕܝܢ ܘܐܢ ܕܠܐ ܦܓܪ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܝܕܥ
3 And I know this son of man, but, if in a body, and if not a body, I don’t know, Alaha {God}, He knows,

ܕܐܬܚܛܦ ܠܦܪܕܝܣܐ ܘܫܡܥ ܡܠܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܡܠܠܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܫܠܝܛ ܠܒܪܢܫܐ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ ܐܢܝܢ
4 who was snatched away unto Paradise, and heard Words, which are unspeakable, that which are not permitted for a son of man to speak them.

ܥܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܫܬܒܗܪ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܝ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܐܫܬܒܗܪ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܒܟܘܪܗܢܐ
5 Concerning this one, I will boast, but, concerning my soul, I will not boast; except in weakness.

ܐܢ ܐܨܒܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܫܬܒܗܪ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܫܛܝܐ ܫܪܪܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܚܐܣ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܡܐ ܐܢܫ ܢܬܪܥܐ ܥܠܝ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܡܐ ܕܚܙܐ ܠܝ ܘܕܫܡܥ ܡܢܝ
6 For, if I desire that should I boast, I will not be a fool, for, it is The Truth I speak; yet, I desist, lest a man think about me more so than that which is shown unto me, and which is heard from me.

ܘܕܠܐ ܐܬܬܪܝܡ ܒܝܬܝܪܘܬܐ ܕܓܠܝܢܐ ܐܫܬܠܡ ܠܝ ܫܦܝܐ ܠܒܣܪܝ ܡܠܐܟܗ ܕܣܛܢܐ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܡܩܦܚ ܠܝ ܕܠܐ ܐܬܬܪܝܡ
7 And, so that I wasn’t exalted by the abundance of the revelations, there was delivered unto me a thorn for my flesh, a malakeh d’satana {a messenger of satan}, who was to oppress me, so that I would not be exalted.

ܘܥܠ ܗܢܐ ܬܠܬ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܒܥܝܬ ܡܢ ܡܪܝ ܕܢܦܪܩ ܡܢܝ
8 And concerning this, three times I sought from Mari {My Lord}, that it would depart from me,

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܣܦܩܐ ܠܟ ܛܝܒܘܬܝ ܚܝܠܝ ܓܝܪ ܒܟܪܝܗܘܬܐ ܡܬܓܡܪ ܚܕܝܐܝܬ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܫܬܒܗܪ ܒܟܘܪܗܢܝ ܕܢܓܢ ܥܠܝ ܚܝܠܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ
9 and He said unto me, “My Grace is sufficient for you, for in weakness, My Power is accomplished.” Therefore, I gladly boast in my weaknesses, so that The Khayleh d’Meshikha {The Power of The Anointed One} will dwell upon me.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܒܟܘܪܗܢܐ ܒܨܥܪܐ ܒܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܒܪܕܘܦܝܐ ܒܚܒܘܫܝܐ ܕܥܠ ܐܦܝ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܡܬܝ ܕܟܪܝܗ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܗܘ ܚܝܠܬܢ ܐܢܐ
10 Because of this, I delight in weaknesses, in pain, in afflictions, in persecution, in imprisonment, which are concerning the sake of Meshikha {The Anointed One}, for, when it is that I am weak, then it is that I am strong!

ܗܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܚܣܝܪ ܪܥܝܢܐ ܒܫܘܒܗܪܝ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܠܨܬܘܢܢܝ ܚܝܒܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܣܗܕܘܢ ܥܠܝ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܒܨܪܬ ܡܕܡ ܡܢ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܛܒ ܡܝܬܪܝܢ ܐܦܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܡܕܡ
11 Behold, I am being deficient of mind in my boasting, because you forced me; for, you were obligated to testify concerning me, on account that I wasn’t lacking a thing from those Shlikhe {Sent Ones}, the ones who abound the most; even if I am nothing.

ܐܬܘܬܐ ܕܫܠܝܚܐ ܥܒܕܬ ܒܝܢܬܟܘܢ ܒܟܠ ܡܣܝܒܪܢܘ ܘܒܓܒܪܘܬܐ ܘܒܬܕܡܪܬܐ ܘܒܚܝܠܐ
12 The signs of The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones} were done among you in all patience, and in wonders, and in marvels, and in mighty works.

ܒܡܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܬܒܨܪܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܥܕܬܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܒܗܕܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܝܩܪܬ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܫܒܘܩܘ ܠܝ ܗܕܐ ܣܟܠܘܬܐ
13 For, in what were you less than the other Edatha {Assemblies}, but, if in this: That I wasn’t a burden upon you? Permit this foolishness for me.

ܗܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܬܠܬ ܗܝ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܕܡܛܝܒ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܐܩܪ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܚܝܒܝܢ ܒܢܝܐ ܠܡܣܡ ܣܝܡܬܐ ܠܐܒܗܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܒܗܐ ܠܒܢܝܗܘܢ
14 Behold, this, which is three times now which I have prepared that I come unto you, and I will not be a burden on you, on account that I don’t seek that which is yours, but rather, you! For, sons are not indebted to lay up treasures for fathers, but rather, fathers for sons.

ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܚܕܝܐܝܬ ܘܢܦܩܬܐ ܐܦܩ ܘܐܦ ܩܢܘܡܝ ܐܬܠ ܥܠ ܐܦܝ ܢܦܫܬܟܘܢ ܐܦܢ ܟܕ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܡܚܒ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܨܝܪܐܝܬ ܡܚܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܝ
15 Yet, I am joyous, and bring forth the expenses, and even my personal substance concerning the persons of your souls, even if, while I am excessively loving unto you, the less you are loving unto me.

ܘܟܒܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܝܩܪܬ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܪܥܐ ܒܢܟܠܐ ܓܢܒܬܟܘܢ
16 And perhaps I wasn’t a burden on you, but rather, as a cunning man, I robbed you by trickery.

ܠܡܐ ܒܝܕ ܐܢܫ ܐܚܪܝܢ ܕܫܕܪܬ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܐܬܝܥܢܬ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ
17 Why? Was it by the hand of another man that I sent unto you, greedy concerning you?

ܡܢ ܛܛܘܣ ܒܥܝܬ ܘܫܕܪܬ ܥܡܗ ܠܐܚܐ ܠܡܐ ܒܡܕܡ ܐܬܝܥܢ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܛܛܘܣ ܠܘ ܒܚܕܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܗܠܟܢ ܘܒܗܝܢ ܒܥܩܒܬܐ
18 From Titus I had asked, and sent The Brothers together with him. Why? Was Titus greedy concerning you? Was it not in one spirit, and walking in step?

ܠܡܐ ܬܘܒ ܣܒܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܠܟܘܢ ܢܦܩܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܟܠܗܝܢ ܚܒܝܒܝ ܡܛܠ ܒܢܝܢܐ ܗܘ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ
19 Why? Do you further suppose that we should be defending our spirit? Before Alaha {God}, in Meshikha {The Anointed One}, we speak, and all these things my beloved are on account of your own edification.

ܕܚܠ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܡܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܟܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܘܐܫܬܟܚ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܠܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܠܡܐ ܚܪܝܢܐ ܘܚܣܡܐ ܘܚܡܬܐ ܘܥܨܝܢܐ ܘܡܐܟܠ ܩܪܨܐ ܘܪܛܢܐ ܘܚܬܝܪܘܬܐ ܘܫܓܘܫܝܐ
20 For, I fear, lest I might come unto you and not find you as which I desire, and I also be found unto you as how that you don’t desire; lest there be contention, and envy, and anger, and rebellion, and accusation, and complaint, and pride, and commotion,

ܕܠܡܐ ܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܢܡܟܟܢܝ ܐܠܗܝ ܘܐܬܐܒܠ ܥܠ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܚܛܘ ܘܠܐ ܬܒܘ ܡܢ ܛܢܦܘܬܐ ܘܡܢ ܙܢܝܘܬܐ ܘܡܢ ܦܚܙܘܬܐ ܕܥܒܕܘ
21 that perhaps, when I shall come unto you, Alahi {My God} will humble me, and I will grieve concerning the many who sin and are not repenting {turning} from the impurity, and from the fornication, and from the lasciviousness which they do.

Chapter 13
ܗܕܐ ܕܬܠܬ ܗܝ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܕܡܛܝܒ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܕܥܠ ܦܘܡ ܬܪܝܢ ܘܬܠܬܐ ܣܗܕܝܢ ܬܩܘܡ ܟܠ ܡܠܐ
1 This, which is three times that I have prepared to come unto you, so that together, that “by the mouth of two and three witnesses, every matter might be established.”

ܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܐܡܪܬ ܗܘܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܬܘܒ ܡܩܕܡ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܦ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܕܗܘܝܬ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܐܡܪܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܦ ܗܫܐ ܟܕ ܪܚܝܩ ܐܢܐ ܟܬܒ ܐܢܐ ܠܗܠܝܢ ܕܚܛܘ ܘܠܫܪܟܐ ܕܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܐܢ ܐܬܐ ܬܘܒ ܠܐ ܐܚܘܣ
2 From before, I was saying unto you, and again beforehand, I say
unto you; as also the two times I was with you I said unto you; even now, while I am afar; I write unto those who have sinned, and unto the remainder of the others: That if I come again, I will not show pity,

ܡܛܠ ܕܒܘܩܝܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܡܡܠܠ ܒܝ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܚܝܠ ܒܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܚܝܠܬܢ ܗܘ ܒܟܘܢ
3 on account that you seek proof of Meshikha {The Anointed One} who speaks in me, He who hasn’t been weak in you, but rather, is powerful in you.

ܐܦܢ ܐܙܕܩܦ ܓܝܪ ܒܡܚܝܠܘܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܚܝ ܗܘ ܒܚܝܠܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܡܚܝܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܥܡܗ ܐܠܐ ܚܝܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܥܡܗ ܒܚܝܠܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܒܟܘܢ
4 For, even if He was crucified in weakness, yet, He is alive by The Khayla d’Alaha {The Power of God}. Also we are weak, yet, we are alive together with Him, by The Khayla d’Alaha {The Power of God} that is in us.

ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܒܩܘ ܐܢ ܒܗ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܐܣܘ ܐܘ ܠܐ ܡܫܬܘܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܗܘ ܘܐܢ ܠܐ ܡܣܠܝܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ
5 Examine your souls; if you are standing in Haymanutha {Faith}, repair your souls. Or, do you not know that Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One} is in you? And if not, you are reprobate.

ܡܣܒܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܬܕܥܘܢ ܕܚܢܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܢ ܡܣܠܝܢ
6 Yet, I suppose that you are knowing that we are not being rejected.

ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܒܝܫ ܐܝܟ ܕܒܘܩܝܢ ܕܝܠܢ ܢܬܚܙܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܗܘܘܢ ܣܥܪܝܢ ܛܒܬܐ ܘܚܢܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܣܠܝܐ
7 But, I ask from Alaha {God} that there not be in you a thing that is evil, as which our own proof is seen, but, that you might be doers of good, and we might be as rejected.

ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܢܥܒܕ ܡܕܡ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܩܘܫܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܚܠܦ ܩܘܫܬܐ
8 For, we are not able to do a thing against The Qushtha {The Truth}, but rather, for The Qushtha {The Truth}.

ܚܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܐ ܕܚܢܢ ܟܪܝܗܝܢ ܘܐܢܬܘܢ ܚܝܠܬܢܝܢ ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܐܦ ܡܨܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ
ܬܬܓܡܪܘܢ
9 Yet, we rejoice how it is that we are weak, and you are strong, and yet, even this we pray: that you might be perfected.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܟܕ ܪܚܝܩ ܐܢܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܬܒ ܐܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܐ ܕܐܬܝܬ ܩܫܝܐܝܬ ܐܣܥܘܪ ܐܝܟ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܕܝܗܒ ܠܝ ܡܪܝ ܠܒܢܝܢܟܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܠܣܘܚܦܟܘܢ
10 Because of this, while I am afar, these things I write, so that when I come I don’t act severely, according to The Authority which Mari {My Lord} gave unto me, for edification and not for destruction.

ܡܟܝܠ ܐܚܝ ܚܕܘ ܘܐܬܓܡܪܘ ܘܐܬܒܝܐܘ ܘܐܘܝܘܬܐ ܘܫܝܢܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܘܐܠܗܐ ܕܚܘܒܐ ܘܕܫܠܡܘܬܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܥܡܟܘܢ
11 Therefore, my Brothers, rejoice and be perfect, and be comforted, and harmony and peace be among you, and The Alaha d’Khuba {The God of Love} and of Shalmutha {Agreement/Concord} will be with you.

ܫܐܠܘ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܚܕ ܕܚܕ ܒܢܘܫܩܬܐ ܩܕܝܫܬܐ
12 Greet each other in Shlama {Peace}, with a Nushaqtha Qadisha {a Holy Kiss}.

ܫܐܠܝܢ ܒܫܠܡܟܘܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܩܕܝܫܐ
13 Greet in Peace all The Qadishe {The Holy Ones}.

ܫܠܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܚܘܒܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܫܘܬܦܘܬܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܥܡ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ
14 Shlameh d’Maran Eshu Meshikha {The Peace of Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}, and The Khubeh d’Alaha {The Love of God}, and The Shuthaphutha d’Rukha {The Fellowship of The Spirit of Holiness} be with you all. Amiyn {Amen}.
