Chapter 1
ܟܬܒܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܟܬܒܬ ܐܘ ܬܐܘܦܝܠܐ ܥܠ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܪܝ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܘܠܡܠܦܘ
1 The former Kathaba {Writing/Scripture i.e. Luke’s Gospel} I wrote, O Theuphiyle {O Theophilus}, concerned all those things which Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One} began to do and to teach,

ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܗܘ ܕܒܗ ܐܣܬܠܩ ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܕܦܩܕ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܫܠܝܚܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܓܒܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
2 up to the day in which He ascended, after having given instruction unto The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, the ones whom He had chosen through The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness},

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܦ ܚܘܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܢܦܫܗ ܟܕ ܚܝ ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܕܚܫ ܒܐܬܘܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܒܝܘܡܝܢ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܟܕ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܥܠ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
3 unto whom, He also had shown Himself, during forty days, by many signs while alive, after He had suffered, where He was appearing unto them and speaking concerning The Malkutha d’Alaha {The Kingdom of God}.

ܘܟܕ ܐܟܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܚܡܐ ܦܩܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܠܐ ܢܦܪܩܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܕܢܩܘܘܢ ܠܫܘܘܕܝܗ ܕܐܒܐ ܗܘ ܕܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܡܢܝ
4 And after He had eaten lakhma {bread} with them, He instructed them that from Urishlem {Jerusalem} they shouldn’t depart, but rather, that they should remain for The Shudayeh d’Aba {The Promise of The Father}, “That which you have heard from Me,

ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܥܡܕ ܒܡܝܐ ܘܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܥܡܕܘܢ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܠܐ ܒܬܪ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ
5 that, Yukhanan {John} had Immersed {Baptized} in water, and you will be Immersed {Baptized} in The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, after not many days.”

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܫܐܠܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܪܢ ܐܢ ܒܗܢܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܡܦܢܐ ܐܢܬ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܠܝܣܪܝܠ
6 Then, when they had gathered, they asked, and they said unto Him, “Maran {Our Lord}, perhaps at this time will You return The Malkutha {The Kingdom} unto IysraIyl {Israel}?”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܗܕܐ ܠܡܕܥ ܙܒܢܐ ܐܘ ܙܒܢܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܒܐ ܣܡ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܕܢܦܫܗ
7 He said unto them, “This is not your own to know, the time, or the times which Aba {The Father} has set by the authority of His own Soul,

ܐܠܐ ܟܕ ܬܐܬܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܬܩܒܠܘܢ ܚܝܠܐ ܘܬܗܘܘܢ ܠܝ ܣܗܕܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܒܟܠܗ ܝܗܘܕ ܘܐܦ ܒܝܬ ܫܡܪܝܐ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܣܘܦܝܗ ܕܐܪܥܐ
8 but, when The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness} will come upon you, you will receive power, and you will be witnesses for me, in Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and in all Yehud {Judea}, and also among the Shamraye {the Samaritans}, and as far as unto the ends of the Ara {the Earth}.”

ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܟܕ ܚܙܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܣܬܠܩ ܘܥܢܢܐ ܩܒܠܬܗ ܘܐܬܟܣܝ ܡܢ ܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ
9 And after these things were said, while they looked unto Him, He ascended, and a Cloud received Him and concealed Him from their eyes,

ܘܟܕ ܚܝܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܟܕ ܗܘ ܐܙܠ ܗܘܐ ܐܫܬܟܚܘ ܬܪܝܢ ܓܒܪܝܢ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܒܠܒܘܫܐ ܚܘܪܐ
10 and while they were looking in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, when He had departed, two gabriyn {men} were found standing with them, in white clothing,

ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܓܠܝܠܝܐ ܡܢܐ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܚܝܪܝܢ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܗܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܐܣܬܠܩ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܠܫܡܝܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܐܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܚܙܝܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܕܣܠܩ ܠܫܡܝܐ
11 and they said unto them, “Gabre {Men}, Galilaye {Galileans}, Why are you standing and looking in the Shmaya {the Heavens}? This Eshu {Y’shu}, who has ascended from you unto the Shmaya {the Heavens}, will thus so come, according to how that you have seen that He has ascended unto the Shmaya {the Heavens}.”

ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪܟܢ ܗܦܟܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܡܢ ܛܘܪܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܙܝܬܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܦܪܝܩ ܡܢܗ ܐܝܟ ܫܒܥܐ ܐܣܛܕܘܢ
12 And after this they returned unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}, from the Mountain which is called Beth Zaythe {the place of Olives}, which is on the side of Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and distant from it according to *shaba estdawan.

* seven stadia, which is about 4,200 feet, just over 2 miles

ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܕܥܠܘ ܣܠܩܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܥܠܝܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗ ܦܛܪܘܣ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܐܢܕܪܐܘܣ ܘܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܘܬܐܘܡܐ ܘܡܬܝ ܘܒܪ ܬܘܠܡܝ ܘܝܥܩܘܒ ܒܪ ܚܠܦܝ ܘܫܡܥܘܢ ܛܢܢܐ ܘܝܗܘܕܐ ܒܪ ܝܥܩܘܒ
13 And after that, going up, they entered into a room, where there was in it, Petrus {Peter/The Rock}, and Yukhanan {John}, and Yaqub {Jacob/James}, and Andreus {Andrew}, and Philipus {Philip}, and Thawma {Thomas}, and Mathi {Matthew}, and Bar-Thulmi {Bartholomew}, and Yaqub Bar-Khalphai {Jacob/James, the son of Alphaeus}, and Shimeun Tanana {Simeon, the Zealot}, and Yehuda Bar-Yaqub {Judah/Judas, the son of Jacob/James}.

ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܐܡܝܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܨܠܘܬܐ ܒܚܕܐ ܢܦܫ ܥܡ ܢܫܐ ܘܥܡ ܡܪܝܡ ܐܡܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܘܥܡ ܐܚܘܗܝ
14 All these were together, constantly in prayer, with one soul, together with the women, and with Maryam {Mary}, the mother of Eshu {Y’shu}, and with His brothers.

ܘܒܗܘܢ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܩܡ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܡܨܥܬ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐܐ ܘܥܣܪܝܢ ܘܐܡܪ
15 And in those days Shimeun Kepha {Simeon, The Rock} stood up in the midst of The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students}. Now, there were assembled there, of the men, about one hundred and twenty, and he said,

ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܙܕܩ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܟܬܒܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܩܕܡ ܐܡܪ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܒܦܘܡܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܥܠ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܗܘ ܕܗܘܐ ܡܕܒܪܢܐ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܚܕܘ ܠܝܫܘܥ
16 “Men, brothers, it was proper that The Kathaba {The Scripture} should be fulfilled, that which previously The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness} spoke through the mouth of David, concerning Yehuda {Judah/Judas}, he who was the guide for those who seized Eshu {Y’shu},

ܡܛܠ ܕܡܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܢ ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܦܣܐ ܒܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܗܕܐ
17 on account, that he was numbered with us, and there was for him a part in this Teshmeshtha {Ministry}.

ܗܢܐ ܗܘ ܕܩܢܐ ܠܗ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܡܢ ܐܓܪܐ ܕܚܛܝܬܐ ܘܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܐܦܘܗܝ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܘܐܬܦܪܬ ܡܢ ܡܨܥܬܗ ܘܐܬܐܫܕ ܟܠܗ ܓܘܝܗ
18 This is he who obtained a qritha {a field} for himself from the reward of his sin, and fell on his face upon the ground, and was split open from his middle, and all his bowels poured out.

ܘܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܐܬܝܕܥܬ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܗܟܢܐ ܐܬܩܪܝܬ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܗܝ ܒܠܫܢܗ ܕܐܬܪܐ ܚܩܠ ܕܡܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܬܘܪܓܡܗ ܩܘܪܝܬ ܕܡ
19 And this same thing has been known unto all who dwell in Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and thus, that field is called in the language of the region, “Khaqal dema,” translated, “Quriath dem {The Field of Blood}.”

ܟܬܝܒ ܓܝܪ ܒܣܦܪܐ ܕܡܙܡܘܪܐ ܕܕܝܪܗ ܬܗܘܐ ܚܪܒܐ ܘܥܡܘܪ ܠܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܘܬܫܡܫܬܗ ܢܣܒ ܐܚܪܝܢ
20 For, it is written in Sephre d’Mazmure {The Scroll of The Psalms}, that, “His dwelling will be deserted, and an inhabitant will not be in it,” and “another will take Teshmeshtheh {his Ministry}.”

ܘܠܝܐ ܗܝ ܗܟܝܠ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܗܘܘ ܥܡܢ ܒܗܢܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܟܠܗ ܕܒܗ ܥܠ ܘܢܦܩ ܥܠܝܢ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ
21 Now then, it is proper, for one from these gabre {men}, whom have been with us during all this time, concerning which, among us Maran Eshu {Our Lord Y’shu} came in and went out,

ܕܐܩܦ ܡܢ ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܗ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܐܣܬܠܩ ܡܢ ܠܘܬܢ ܕܗܘ ܢܗܘܐ ܥܡܢ ܣܗܕܐ ܕܩܝܡܬܗ
22 whom had joined us from The Mamuditheh d’Yukhanan {The Immersion/Baptism of John}, up to the day that He ascended from among us, so that he should be a witness with us of His Resurrection.”

ܘܐܩܝܡܘ ܬܪܝܢ ܠܝܘܣܦ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܒܪܫܒܐ ܕܐܫܬܡܝ ܝܘܣܛܘܣ ܘܠܡܬܝܐ
23 And two were raised up: Yuseph {Joseph}, who is called Bar-Shaba {Barsabas}, who is named Yustus {Justus}, and MathiYa {Matthias},

ܘܟܕ ܨܠܝܘ ܐܡܪܘ ܐܢܬ ܡܪܝܐ ܝܕܥ ܕܒܠܒܘܬܐ ܕܟܠ ܚܘܐ ܚܕ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܓܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܬܪܝܗܘܢ
24 and after they had prayed, they said, “MarYa {Lord-YHWH}, You who are acquainted with the hearts of all, show the one whom You have chosen from these two,

ܕܗܘ ܢܩܒܠ ܦܣܐ ܕܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܘܫܠܝܚܘܬܐ ܕܡܢܗ ܦܪܩ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܠܐܬܪܗ
25 so that he should receive the part of The Ministry, and The Shlikhutha {The Sent One’s Mission}, from which Yehuda {Judah/Judas} has left, so that he should go unto his place.”

ܘܐܪܡܝܘ ܦܨܐ ܘܣܠܩܬ ܠܡܬܝܐ ܘܐܬܡܢܝ ܥܡ ܚܕܥܣܪ ܫܠܝܚܐ
26 And they cast the lots, and it came up for MathiYa {Matthias}, and he was numbered with the eleven Shlikhe {Sent Ones}.

Chapter 2
ܘܟܕ ܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܦܢܛܩܘܣܛܐ ܟܕ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܟܚܕܐ
1 And when The Days of Pentiqusti {Pentecost} were completed, while they were all gathered together,

ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܫܠܝܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܩܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܥܙܝܙܬܐ ܘܐܬܡܠܝ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܗ ܟܠܗ ܒܝܬܐ ܗܘ ܕܒܗ ܝܬܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ
2 suddenly {lit. from the quiet} there was a sound from the Shmaya {the Heavens}, as of a powerful wind, and from it had filled all the house, that in which they were seated,

ܘܐܬܚܙܝܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܫܢܐ ܕܡܬܦܠܓܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܝܟ ܢܘܪܐ ܘܝܬܒܘ ܥܠ ܚܕ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ
3 and there were appearing unto them, tongues, which were distributed like Nura {Fire}, and were settling upon each one from them.

ܘܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܐܩܦܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ ܒܠܫܢ ܠܫܢ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܝܗܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ
4 And all were filled with The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, and were proceeding to speak in certain languages, according to what The Rukha {The Spirit} had given unto them to speak.

ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܕܕܚܠܝܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܡܢ ܟܠ ܥܡܡܐ ܕܬܚܝܬ ܫܡܝܐ
5 Now, there were gabre {men} who were dwelling in Urishlem {Jerusalem} who revered Alaha {God}, from the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews}, and from all the Amme {the Gentiles} who are under the Shmaya {the Heavens},

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܩܠܐ ܗܘ ܟܢܫ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܘܐܫܬܓܫ ܡܛܠ ܕܫܡܥ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܠܫܢܝܗܘܢ
6 and when there was that sound, all the Ama {the People} gathered, and were troubled, on account that each nash {man} from them were hearing that they were speaking in their languages.

ܬܗܝܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܡܬܕܡܪܝܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܠܐ ܗܐ ܓܠܝܠܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ
7 then, they were all wondering and surprised, while they were saying one unto another, “All these who are speaking, look! Are they not Galilaye {Galileans}?

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܚܢܢ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܠܫܢܗ ܕܒܗ ܝܠܝܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ
8 How are we hearing, we, each nash {man}, the language in which we were born?

ܦܪܬܘܝܐ ܘܡܕܝܐ ܘܐܠܢܝܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܝܬ ܢܗܪܝܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܩܦܘܕܩܝܐ ܘܕܡܢ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܦܢܛܘܣ ܘܕܐܣܝܐ
9 Parthuaye {Parthians}, and Madaye {Medes}, and Alanaye {Alans}, and those which dwell in Beth Nahriyn {Mesopotamia}; Yehudaye {Judeans/Jews} and Qaphudqaye {Cappadocians}, and from the region of Pantus {Pontus}, and of Asiya {Asia},

ܘܕܡܢ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܦܪܘܓܝܐ ܘܕܦܡܦܘܠܝܐ ܘܕܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܕܐܬܪܘܬܐ ܕܠܘܒܐ ܕܩܪܝܒܝܢ ܠܩܘܪܝܢܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܘ ܡܢ ܪܗܘܡܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܓܝܘܪܐ
10 and from the region of Phrugiya {Phrygia}, and of Pamphuliya {Pamphiylia}, and Mitsriyn {Egypt}, and of the regions of Lubi {Libya} which is near to Quriyne {Cyrene}, and those who had come from Ruhme {Rome}; Yehudaye {Judeans/Jews} and Giyure {Proselytes},

ܘܕܡܢ ܩܪܛܐ ܘܥܪܒܝܐ ܗܐ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܒܠܫܢܝܢ ܕܝܠܢ ܬܕܡܪܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
11 and those from Qriti {Crete} and Arbaye {Arabians}. Look! We hear from them, which are speaking in our own languages, the wonders of Alaha {God}.”

ܡܬܕܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܬܘܝܪܝܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ ܕܡܢܐ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܨܒܘܬܐ
12 then, all were surprised and amazed, while saying one unto another, “how is this thing?”

ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܡܝܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܐܪܝܬܐ ܐܫܬܝܘ ܘܪܘܝܘ
13 Yet, others among them were mocking, while saying, “These have drank wine and are drunk!”

ܘܒܬܪܟܢ ܩܡ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܥܡ ܚܕܥܣܪ ܫܠܝܚܝܢ ܘܐܪܝܡ ܩܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܗܕܐ ܬܬܝܕܥ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܨܘܬܘ ܡܠܝ
14 And afterwards, Shimeun Kepha {Simeon, The Rock} stood up with the eleven Shlikhiyn {Sent Ones/Emissaries}, and lifted up his voice, and said unto them, “Gabre {Men}! Yehudaye {Judeans/Jews}! And all who dwell in Urishlem {Jerusalem}: This will be known unto you, and be listening unto my words!

ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܣܒܪܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܪܘܝܢ ܕܗܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܫܐ ܬܠܬ ܐܢܝܢ ܫܥܝܢ
15 For, it is not as you think, that these are drunk. Because, look! Up to now there are three hours {i.e. 9 am}.

ܐܠܐ ܗܕܐ ܗܝ ܕܐܡܝܪܐ ܒܝܘܐܝܠ ܢܒܝܐ
16 But rather, this is that spoken by YuIyl Nabiya {Joel, the Prophet}:

ܢܗܘܐ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܫܘܕ ܪܘܚܝ ܥܠ ܟܠ ܒܣܪ ܘܢܬܢܒܘܢ ܒܢܝܟܘܢ ܘܒܢܬܟܘܢ ܘܓܕܘܕܝܟܘܢ ܚܙܘܢܐ ܢܚܙܘܢ ܘܩܫܝܫܝܟܘܢ ܚܠܡܐ ܢܚܠܡܘܢ
17 ‘It will happen in the last days, says Alaha {God}, I will pour out Rukhi {My Spirit} upon all flesh, and your sons will be prophesying, and your daughters, and your young men will be seeing visions, and Qashishaykun {your Elders} will be dreaming dreams.

ܘܥܠ ܥܒܕܝ ܘܥܠ ܐܡܗܬܝ ܐܫܘܕ ܪܘܚܝ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܢܬܢܒܘܢ
18 And upon My servants and upon My maidservants, I will pour out Rukhi {My Spirit} in those days, and they will be prophesying.

ܘܐܬܠ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܓܒܪܘܬܐ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܕܡܐ ܘܢܘܪܐ ܘܥܛܪܐ ܕܬܢܢܐ
19 And I will give signs in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, and powers upon the Ara {the Earth}: Blood and fire, and the vapor of smoke.

ܫܡܫܐ ܢܬܚܠܦ ܒܥܡܛܢܐ ܘܣܗܪܐ ܒܕܡܐ ܥܕܠܐ ܢܐܬܐ ܝܘܡܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܪܒܐ ܘܕܚܝܠܐ
20 The sun will be changed into darkness, and the moon into blood, before there will come The Great and Terrible Day of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}.

ܘܢܗܘܐ ܟܠ ܕܢܩܪܐ ܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܢܚܐ
21 And it will be, that all who Proclaim The Name of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, will Live.’

ܓܒܪܐ ܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܫܡܥܘ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܒܚܝܠܐ ܘܒܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܒܓܒܪܘܬܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܥܒܕ ܒܝܢܬܟܘܢ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
22 Men, Sons of IysraIyl {Israel}, Hear these words! Eshu Natsraya {Y’shu, The Nazarene}, a Man who from Alaha {God}, has appeared unto you in power, and in signs, and in wonders, that which Alaha {God} has performed among you, through Him, as you yourselves know.

ܠܗܢܐ ܕܦܪܝܫ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܠܗܕܐ ܒܡܩܕܡܘܬ ܝܕܥܬܗ ܘܒܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܫܠܡܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܪܫܝܥܐ ܘܙܩܦܬܘܢ ܘܩܛܠܬܘܢ
23 For, this One who was appointed unto this, by the foreknowledge, and by the will of Alaha {God}, you have delivered into wicked hands, and have crucified, and have killed!

ܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܩܝܡܗ ܘܫܪܐ ܚܒܠܝܗ ܕܫܝܘܠ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܗܘܬ ܕܢܬܬܚܕ ܒܗ ܒܫܝܘܠ
24 But, Alaha {God} raised Him, and loosened the cords of Sheul, on account that it was not possible that He should be held in Sheul.

ܕܘܝܕ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܡܩܕܡ ܗܘܝܬ ܚܙܐ ܠܡܪܝ ܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܕܥܠ ܝܡܝܢܝ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܐܙܘܥ
25 For, David said concerning Him: ‘I have foreseen Mari {My Lord} always, He who is on My right, that I should not be troubled.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܒܣܡ ܠܒܝ ܘܪܘܙܬ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܝ ܘܐܦ ܦܓܪܝ ܢܓܢ ܥܠ ܣܒܪܐ
26 Because of this, My heart has rejoiced, and My glory was gladdened, and also My body will rest upon The Hope

ܕܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܐܢܬ ܠܢܦܫܝ ܒܫܝܘܠ ܘܠܐ ܝܗܒ ܐܢܬ ܠܚܣܝܟ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܚܒܠܐ
27 that You will not leave My Soul in Sheul, and You will not allow for Your Holy One that He should see corruption.

ܓܠܝܬ ܠܝ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܚܝܐ ܬܡܠܝܢܝ ܒܣܝܡܘܬܐ ܥܡ ܦܪܨܘܦܟ
28 Unto Me, The Way of Life was revealed. You will fill Me with sweetness with Your Presence.’

ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܡܦܣ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܥܠ ܪܫ ܐܒܗܬܐ ܕܘܝܕ ܕܡܝܬ ܘܐܦ ܐܬܩܒܪ ܘܒܝܬ ܩܒܘܪܗ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܠܘܬܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܢܐ
29 Men, brothers, allow me to speak unto you openly {lit. with an open eye} concerning the Chief of the fathers, David, who has died, and also was buried, and his burial-place is with us until today.

ܢܒܝܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܘܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܕܡܘܡܬܐ ܝܡܐ ܠܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܡܢ ܦܐܪܐ ܕܟܪܣܟ ܐܘܬܒ ܥܠ ܟܘܪܣܝܟ
30 For, he was a Nabiya {a Prophet}, and knew that Alaha {God} had sworn an oath unto him, that ‘From the fruit of your belly, one will sit upon your throne.’ {Psalm 132:11 Peshitta}

ܘܩܕܡ ܚܙܐ ܘܡܠܠ ܥܠ ܩܝܡܬܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܠܐ ܐܫܬܒܩ ܒܫܝܘܠ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܦܓܪܗ ܚܙܐ ܚܒܠܐ
31 And he foresaw, and spoke concerning The Resurrection of Meshikha {The Anointed One}, that He was not left in Sheul, also, neither did His body see corruption.

ܠܗܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܩܝܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܚܢܢ ܟܠܢ ܣܗܕܘܗܝ
32 This Eshu {Y’shu}, Alaha {God} has raised up, and we all are His witnesses,

ܘܗܘܝܘ ܕܒܝܡܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܬܪܝܡ ܘܢܣܒ ܡܢ ܐܒܐ ܫܘܘܕܝܐ ܕܥܠ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܐܫܕ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܗܐ ܚܙܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܫܡܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
33 and He is The One who is exalted at the right of Alaha {God}, and has received from Aba {The Father} The Promise of The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, and concerning which, has poured out this Gift, that look! You are seeing and you are hearing.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܘܝܕ ܣܠܩ ܠܫܡܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܗܘ ܐܡܪ ܕܐܡܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܠܡܪܝ ܬܒ ܠܟ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܝ
34 For, David has not ascended unto the Shmaya {the Heavens}, because, it was he who had said: ‘MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} has said to Mari {My Lord}, to “Sit at My right,

ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܣܝܡ ܒܥܠܕܒܒܝܟ ܟܘܒܫܐ ܠܪܓܠܝܟ
35 until I place Your enemies as a footstool for Your feet.”’ {Psalm 110:1 -Peshitta}

ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܕܥ ܟܠܗ ܒܝܬ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܡܫܝܚܐ ܥܒܕܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܗܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܙܩܦܬܘܢ
36 Now then, truly, let all The House of IysraIyl {Israel} know, that Alaha {God} has made this Eshu {Y’shu}, MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} and Meshikha {The Anointed One}, whom you have crucified!”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܬܓܢܚܘ ܒܠܒܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܠܫܪܟܐ ܕܫܠܝܚܐ ܡܢܐ ܢܥܒܕ ܐܚܝܢ
37 And when they had heard these things , they were touched in their heart, and they said unto Shimeun {Simeon} and unto the rest of The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, “What shall we do, brothers?”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܬܘܒܘ ܘܥܡܕܘ ܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܫܘܒܩܢ ܚܛܗܐ ܕܬܩܒܠܘܢ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
38 Shimeun {Simeon} said unto them, “Repent, and be immersed, each man from you, in The Name of MarYa Eshu {The Lord-YHWH Y’shu}, for the remission of sins, so that you may receive The Gift of The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}.

ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܫܘܘܕܝܐ ܘܠܒܢܝܟܘܢ ܘܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܪܚܝܩܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܘ ܐܠܗܐ ܢܩܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ
39 For, unto you The Promise was made, and unto your sons, and unto all those who are distant; those whom Alaha {God} Himself will call.”

ܘܒܡܠܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܡܣܗܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܚܝܘ ܡܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܡܥܩܡܬܐ
40 And with many other words he was Testifying unto them, and was requiring from them, while saying, “be saved from this perverse generation!”

ܘܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܥܬܝܕܐܝܬ ܩܒܠܘ ܡܠܬܗ ܘܗܝܡܢܘ ܘܥܡܕܘ ܘܐܬܬܘܣܦܘ ܒܗܘ ܝܘܡܐ ܐܝܟ ܬܠܬܐ ܐܠܦܝܢ ܢܦܫܢ
41 And men from them, readily received his word, and believed, and were Immersed {Baptized}, and about three thousand souls were added in that day.

ܘܐܡܝܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܕܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܡܫܬܘܬܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܨܠܘܬܐ ܘܒܩܨܝܐ ܕܐܘܟܪܣܛܝܐ
42 And they were constantly in The Teaching of The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, and they were participating in prayer, and in the breaking of The Eukaristia {The Eucharist}.

ܘܗܘܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܒܟܠ ܢܦܫ ܘܐܬܘܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܘܓܒܪܘܬܐ ܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܝ ܒܝܕ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ
43 And there was awe in every soul, and there were many signs and wonders done through The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones} in Urishlem {Jerusalem},

ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܗܘܘ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܗܘܘ ܘܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܓܘܐ ܗܘܐ
44 and all those who were believing, they were together, and every thing that was theirs, was common,

ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܩܢܝܢܐ ܡܙܒܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܘܡܦܠܓܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܐܝܟ ܡܕܡ ܕܣܢܝܩ ܗܘܐ
45 and those unto whom were possessions, were selling them , and were distributing unto each man according to the thing which was needful.

ܘܟܠܝܘܡ ܐܡܝܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܒܚܕܐ ܢܦܫ ܘܒܒܝܬܐ ܩܨܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܦܪܝܣܬܐ ܘܡܩܒܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܣܝܒܪܬܐ ܟܕ ܪܘܙܝܢ ܘܒܒܪܝܪܘܬܐ ܕܠܒܗܘܢ
46 And everyday they were always in The Haykla {The Temple}, with one soul, and in the house, they were breaking The Flatbread, and they were receiving their food while rejoicing, and in the purity of their heart

ܡܫܒܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܟܕ ܝܗܝܒܝܢ ܒܪܚܡܐ ܩܕܡ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܘܡܪܢ ܡܘܣܦ ܗܘܐ ܟܠܝܘܡ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܚܐܝܢ ܒܥܕܬܐ
47 were giving praises unto Alaha {God}, while giving, with mercies, before all the Ama {the People}. And into The Edtha {The Assembly}, everyday, Maran {Our Lord} was adding unto those who were the Living Ones.

Chapter 3
ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܣܠܩܝܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܒܥܕܢܐ ܕܨܠܘܬܐ ܕܬܫܥ ܫܥܝܢ
1 And it happened that when Shimeun Kepha {Simeon, The Rock} and Yukhanan {John} went up together unto The Haykla {The Temple} at the set time of The Prayer of the ninth hour {i.e. 3 pm}.

ܘܗܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܚܓܝܪܐ ܕܡܢ ܟܪܣ ܐܡܗ ܫܩܝܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܥܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܝܬܝܢ ܘܣܝܡܝܢ ܠܗ ܒܬܪܥܐ ܕܗܝܟܠܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܫܐܠ ܙܕܩܬܐ ܡܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܥܐܠܝܢ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ
2 And behold, a certain gabra {man}, lame from his mother’s womb, who was begging alms from those who were entering unto The Haykla {The Temple}, which men had brought, who were accustomed to bring him and set him at the gate of The Haykla {The Temple}, which is called Shaphira {Beautiful},

ܗܢܐ ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܕܥܐܠܝܢ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܢܬܠܘܢ ܠܗ ܙܕܩܬܐ
3 this one, when he saw Shimeun {Simeon} and Yukhanan {John}, who were entering unto The Haykla {The Temple}, was begging from them, so that they should give alms {charity} unto him.

ܘܚܪܘ ܒܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܚܘܪ ܒܢ
4 And Shimeun {Simeon} and Yukhanan {John} looked at him, and said unto him, “Look at us.”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܚܪ ܒܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܣܒܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܣܒ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܕܡ
5 But, he had looked at them while expecting he was to receive something from them.

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܗܒܐ ܘܣܐܡܐ ܠܝܬ ܠܝ ܐܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܝܗܒ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܩܘܡ ܗܠܟ
6 Shimeun {Simeon} said unto him, “Gold and silver is not mine, but rather, the thing that is mine, I give unto you: In The Name of Maran Eshu Meshikha Natsraya {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One, The Nazarene}, arise, walk!”

ܘܐܚܕܗ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܕܝܡܝܢܐ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܫܪ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܘܥܩܒܘܗܝ
7 And he took him by his right hand, and raised him up, and at that moment his feet and his ankles were made firm.

ܘܫܘܪ ܩܡ ܘܗܠܟ ܘܥܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܟܕ ܡܗܠܟ ܘܡܫܘܪ ܘܡܫܒܚ ܠܐܠܗܐ
8 And he leaped up, stood, and walked, and entered with them unto The Haykla {The Temple}, while he was walking and leaping and giving praise unto Alaha {God}.

ܘܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܟܕ ܡܗܠܟ ܘܡܫܒܚ ܠܐܠܗܐ
9 And all the Ama {the People} had seen him while he walked and gave praise unto Alaha {God},

ܘܐܫܬܘܕܥܘ ܕܗܘܝܘ ܗܘ ܚܕܘܪܐ ܕܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܟܠܝܘܡ ܘܫܐܠ ܙܕܩܬܐ ܥܠ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܘܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܬܡܗܐ ܘܕܘܡܪܐ ܥܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܗܘܐ
10 and they knew that it was he, the beggar, who would sit everyday and beg alms next to the gate which is called Shaphira {Beautiful}, and they were filled with wonder and amazement, concerning the thing which had happened.

ܘܟܕ ܐܚܝܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܪܗܛ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܟܕ ܬܗܝܪ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܠܐܣܛܘܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܕܫܠܝܡܘܢ
11 And while he was holding onto Shimeun {Simeon} and onto Yukhanan {John}, all the Ama {the People}, while wondering, ran towards them unto the Portico, which is called Shliymun’s {Solomon’s}.

ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܡܢܐ ܡܬܕܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܗܢܐ ܐܘ ܒܢ ܡܢܐ ܚܝܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܗܘ ܕܒܚܝܠܐ ܕܝܠܢ ܐܘ ܒܫܘܠܛܢܢ ܥܒܕܢ ܗܕܐ ܕܢܗܠܟ ܗܢܐ
12 And when Shimeun {Simeon} had seen it, he responded and said unto them, “Gabre! {Men}! Sons of IysraIyl {Israel}! Why are you wondering at this, or, why are you looking at us, as that it is by our own power, or by our authority we did this, that this one walks?

ܐܠܗܗ ܗܘ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܘܕܐܝܣܚܩ ܘܕܝܥܩܘܒ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܒܗܬܢ ܫܒܚ ܠܒܪܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܗܘ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܫܠܡܬܘܢ ܘܟܦܪܬܘܢ ܒܗ ܩܕܡ ܐܦܘܗܝ ܕܦܝܠܛܘܣ ܟܕ ܗܘ ܙܕܩ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܫܪܝܘܗܝ
13 It is The Alaheh {The God} of Abraham, and of Iskhaq {Isaac}, and of Yaqub {Jacob}, The Alaha {God} of our fathers who has glorified His Son, Eshu {Y’shu}, He whom you delivered over and denied Him in the presence of Pilatus {Pilate}, when he had granted Him to be released.

ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܩܕܝܫܐ ܘܙܕܝܩܐ ܟܦܪܬܘܢ ܘܫܐܠܬܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܩܛܘܠܐ ܕܢܬܝܗܒ ܠܟܘܢ
14 But you, with regard to The Qadisha {The Holy One} and The Just One, have rejected, and you asked for a man, a murderer, that he be given unto you.

ܘܠܗܘ ܪܫܐ ܕܚܝܐ ܩܛܠܬܘܢ ܕܠܗ ܐܩܝܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܚܢܢ ܟܠܢ ܣܗܕܘܗܝ
15 And that One, The Beginning of Life, you killed! Whom Alaha {God} has raised up from the place of the dead, and we are all His witnesses.

ܘܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܗܘ ܐܫܪ ܘܐܣܝ ܘܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܒܗ ܝܗܒܬ ܠܗ ܗܕܐ ܚܠܝܡܘܬܐ ܩܕܡ ܟܠܟܘܢ
16 And through The Haymanutha {The Faith} of His Name, for this one who you see and you know, He has made strong and He has healed, and The Haymanutha {The Faith} which is in Him, has given unto him this health before you all.

ܒܪܡ ܗܫܐ ܐܚܝ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܕܒܛܘܥܝܝ ܥܒܕܬܘܢ ܗܕܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܥܒܕܘ ܪܫܝܟܘܢ
17 Now, however, my brothers, I know that through deception you did this, according to that which your leaders did,

ܘܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܕܡ ܕܩܕܡ ܐܟܪܙ ܒܦܘܡ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܢܚܫ ܡܫܝܚܗ ܡܠܝ ܗܟܢܐ
18 and Alaha {God}, according to the thing which He had previously Proclaimed through the mouth of all the Nabiye {the Prophets}, that Meshikheh {His Anointed One} would suffer, fulfilled this thing.

ܬܘܒܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܘܐܬܦܢܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܢܬܥܛܘܢ ܚܛܗܝܟܘܢ ܘܢܐܬܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܙܒܢܐ ܕܢܝܚܬܐ ܡܢ ܩܕܡ ܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ
19 Repent therefore, and be converted, so that your sins will be blotted out, and there will come unto you times of rest from before The Face of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH},

ܘܢܫܕܪ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܐܝܢܐ ܕܡܛܝܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
20 and He will send unto you, The One, who was prepared for you, Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One},

ܕܠܗ ܘܠܐ ܠܫܡܝܐ ܕܢܩܒܠܘܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܡܘܠܝܐ ܕܙܒܢܐ ܕܟܠܗܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܠܠ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܦܘܡܐ ܕܢܒܝܘܗܝ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܡܢ ܥܠܡ
21 which, unto whom, it is fitting for the Shmaya {the Heavens} that they would receive Him, until the fullness of the times of all those things which Alaha {God} has spoken through the mouth of Nabiyuhe Qadishe {His Holy Prophets} which were from eternity.

ܡܘܫܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܢܩܝܡ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܪܝܐ ܡܢ ܐܚܝܟܘܢ ܐܟܘܬܝ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘ ܒܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܢܡܠܠ ܥܡܟܘܢ
22 For, Mushe {Moses} has said, that ‘MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} will raise up a Nabiya {a Prophet} unto you from your brothers, like unto me. Hear Him in every thing whatsoever that He will speak with you.

ܘܬܗܘܐ ܟܠ ܢܦܫܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܠܐ ܬܫܡܥ ܠܢܒܝܐ ܗܘ ܬܐܒܕ ܢܦܫܐ ܗܝ ܡܢ ܥܡܗ
23 And it shall be, every soul who will not listen unto that Nabiya {Prophet}, that soul will perish from Ameh {His People}.’

ܘܢܒܝܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܫܡܘܐܝܠ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܒܬܪܗ ܗܘܘ ܡܠܠܘ ܘܐܟܪܙܘ ܥܠ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ
24 And all the Nabiye {the Prophets}, which were from ShamuIyl {Samuel}, and those which were after him, have spoken and have Proclaimed concerning these days.

ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܢܝܗܘܢ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܘܕܕܝܬܩܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܣܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܐܒܗܬܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܠܐܒܪܗܡ ܕܒܙܪܥܟ ܢܬܒܪܟܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ
25 You are the sons of the Nabiye {the Prophets}, and of The Covenant, the one Alaha {God} ordained for our fathers, when He said unto Abraham, that ‘In your Seed all the families of the Earth will be blessed.’

ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܐܩܝܡ ܘܫܕܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܒܪܗ ܟܕ ܡܒܪܟ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܢ ܬܬܦܢܘܢ ܘܬܬܘܒܘܢ ܡܢ ܒܝܫܬܟܘܢ
26 Unto you, He established it, from before, and afterward Alaha {God} sent His Son unto you, to bless you, if you will be converted and be repenting from your evils.”

Chapter 4
ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܥܡܐ ܩܡܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܙܕܘܩܝܐ ܘܐܪܟܘܢܐ ܕܗܝܟܠܐ
1 And when they were speaking these words unto the Ama {the People}, there arose against them Kahne {Priests}, and Zaduqaye {Sadducees}, and Rulers of The Haykla {The Temple},

ܟܕ ܡܬܚܡܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܡܠܦܝܢ ܠܥܡܐ ܘܡܟܪܙܝܢ ܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܥܠ ܩܝܡܬܐ ܕܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ
2 when they were angered against them that they were teaching the Ama {the People}, and were Proclaiming in Meshikha {The Anointed One} concerning The Resurrection which is from the place of the dead,

ܘܐܪܡܝܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܝܐ ܘܢܛܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܩܪܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܪܡܫܐ
3 and they placed their hands upon them, and they kept them unto the next day, because, it was near unto the evening.

ܘܣܓܝܐܐ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܗܘܘ ܡܠܬܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܡܢܝܢܐ ܐܝܟ ܚܡܫܐ ܐܠܦܝܢ ܓܒܪܝܢ
4 And many who had heard The Miltha {The Word}, were believing, and they were in number as to {i.e. about} five thousand men.

ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܐܪܟܘܢܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܣܦܪܐ
5 And the next day, the Rulers gathered, and the Elders, and the Scribes,

ܘܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܝܦܐ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܠܟܣܢܕܪܘܣ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܕܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ
6 and even Khanan {Annas} the Rab Kahne {the Priest’s Chief}, and Qayapha {Caiaphas}, and Yukhanan {John}, and Aleksandrus {Alexander}, and those who are from the family of the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs}.

ܘܟܕ ܐܩܝܡܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܡܨܥܬܐ ܡܫܐܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܒܐܝܢܐ ܚܝܠ ܐܘ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܫܡ ܥܒܕܬܘܢ ܗܕܐ
7 And when they had stood them in the middle, they were asking them, “By what power, or by what name have you done this?”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܐܬܡܠܝ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܪܟܘܢܘܗܝ ܕܥܡܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܫܡܥܘ
8 Then, Shimeun Kepha {Simeon, The Rock} was filled with The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, and said unto them, “Rulers of the Ama {the People}, and Qashishe {Elders} of Beth IysraIyl {The House of Israel}, listen!

ܐܢ ܚܢܢ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܡܬܬܕܝܢܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܥܠ ܫܦܝܪܬܐ ܕܗܘܬ ܠܒܪܢܫܐ ܟܪܝܗܐ ܕܒܡܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܐܣܝ
9 If today we are being judged, we from you, concerning the good which has happened to this infirm son of man, that by what this one was healed,

ܗܕܐ ܬܬܝܕܥ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܠܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܕܝܣܪܝܠ ܕܒܫܡܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܙܩܦܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܗܘ ܕܐܩܝܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܒܗ ܒܗܘ ܗܐ ܩܐܡ ܗܢܐ ܩܕܡܝܟܘܢ ܟܕ ܚܠܝܡ
10 this be known unto you, and unto all the Ama d’IysraIyl {the People of Israel}: That in The Name of Eshu Meshikha Natsraya {Y’shu, The Anointed One, The Nazarene}, He whom you had crucified, that One Whom Alaha {God} raised up from the place of the dead, by that One Himself, look! This one stands before you, while healthy!

ܗܢܘ ܟܐܦܐ ܕܐܣܠܝܬܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܢܝܐ ܘܗܘ ܗܘܐ ܠܪܝܫ ܩܪܢܐ
11 This is The Kepha {The Rock} which you builders had rejected, and He has become The Head of the corner.

ܘܠܝܬ ܒܐܢܫ ܐܚܪܝܢ ܦܘܪܩܢܐ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܬ ܫܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܬܚܝܬ ܫܡܝܐ ܕܐܬܝܗܒ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܒܗ ܘܠܐ ܠܡܚܐ
12 And there is no redemption in another Person, for, there is no other Name under the Heavens, which was given unto the sons of men, in which it is fitting to Live.”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܕܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܐܡܪܘܗ ܐܣܬܟܠܘ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܣܦܪܐ ܘܗܕܝܘܛܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܬܗܪܘ ܒܗܘܢ ܘܐܫܬܘܕܥܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܥܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܬܗܦܟܝܢ ܗܘܘ
13 And when they were hearing the speech of Shimeun {Simeon} and of Yukhanan {John}, that with boldness {lit. with an open eye} they were speaking, they understood that they didn’t know book learning, and they were simple, and they were amazed at them, and they recognized that they had associated with Eshu {Y’shu}.

ܘܚܙܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܩܐܡ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܚܓܝܪܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܐܣܝ ܘܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܕܡ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܠܘܩܒܠܗܘܢ
14 And they saw that the lame man was standing with them, who was healed, and they were not able to say a thing to oppose them.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܦܩܕܘ ܕܢܦܩܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢ ܟܢܫܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ
15 Then, they commanded that they should go out from the gathering, and were saying one unto another,

ܡܢܐ ܢܥܒܕ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܬܐ ܓܠܝܬܐ ܕܗܘܬ ܒܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܘܪܐ ܕܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܐܬܝܕܥܬ ܘܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܢܟܦܘܪ
16 “What will we do to these men? For, look! A clear miracle which was by their hand has been known unto all the inhabitants of Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and we are not able that we should deny it.

ܐܠܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܢܦܘܩ ܒܥܡܐ ܛܒܐ ܗܢܐ ܢܬܠܚܡ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܬܘܒ ܠܐ ܢܡܠܠܘܢ ܒܫܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܠܐܢܫ ܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ
17 But rather, so that this report shouldn’t exceedingly go forth among the Ama {the People}, there will be threats to them, so that they will not again speak in this name to a man from the sons of men.”

ܘܩܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܦܩܕܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܠܓܡܪ ܠܐ ܢܡܠܠܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܢܠܦܘܢ ܒܫܡ ܝܫܘܥ
18 And they called them, and commanded them that they absolutely should not speak, and not teach in the name of Eshu {Y’shu}.

ܥܢܘ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢ ܟܐܢܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܠܟܘܢ ܢܫܡܥ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܘܢܘ
19 Shimeun Kepha {Simeon, The Rock} and Yukhanan {John} responded, and said unto them, “If it is right before Alaha {God} that we should listen to you, more than from Alaha {God}, you judge.

ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܡܐ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܘܫܡܥܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܡܠܠܝܘܗܝ
20 For, we are not able that we shouldn’t speak, because of what we have seen and have heard.

ܘܐܬܠܚܡܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܫܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܠܬܐ ܕܢܣܝܡܘܢ ܒܪܫܗܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܥܡܐ ܟܠܢܫ ܓܝܪ ܡܫܒܚ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܥܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܗܘܐ
21 And they threatened them, and released them, for, they couldn’t find a cause that they might place on their head, because of the Ama {the People}, for, everyone was giving praise unto Alaha {God} concerning the thing which had happened,

ܝܬܝܪ ܓܝܪ ܡܢ ܒܪ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܗܘ ܕܗܘܬ ܒܗ ܗܕܐ ܐܬܐ ܕܐܣܝܘܬܐ
22 for, the man unto whom this sign of healing happened, was more than a son of forty years.

ܘܟܕ ܐܫܬܪܝܘ ܐܬܘ ܠܘܬ ܐܚܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܫܬܥܝܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܐܡܪܘ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ
23 And when they were released, they came unto their brothers, and they related unto them all that which the Priests and the Qashishe {the Elders} had said.

ܘܗܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܐܟܚܕ ܐܪܝܡܘ ܩܠܗܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܥܒܕܬ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܐܪܥܐ ܘܝܡܡܐ ܘܟܠ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗܘܢ
24 And they, when they had heard it, together they were lifting up their voice unto Alaha {God}, and were saying: “ MarYa {Lord-YHWH}, You are Alaha {God}, who made the Heavens and the Earth, and the sea, and all which are in them.

ܘܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܕܡܠܠܬ ܒܝܕ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܒܦܘܡ ܕܘܝܕ ܥܒܕܟ ܠܡܢܐ ܪܓܫܘ ܥܡܡܐ ܘܐܡܘܬܐ ܪܢܝ ܣܪܝܩܘܬܐ
25 And You are He who spoke by means of The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, through the mouth of David, Your Servant: ‘For what did the Amme {the Peoples/the Gentiles} rage, and the Emutha {the Nations} plan vanity?

ܩܡܘ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܘܫܠܝܛܢܐ ܘܐܬܡܠܟܘ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܥܠ ܡܪܝܐ ܘܥܠ ܡܫܝܚܗ
26 The Kings of the Earth and the authorities have stood up and deliberated together concerning MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, and concerning Meshikheh {His Anointed One}.’

ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܓܝܪ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܥܠ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܒܪܟ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܢܬ ܡܫܚܬ ܗܪܘܕܣ ܘܦܝܠܛܘܣ ܥܡ ܥܡܡܐ ܘܟܢܫܐ ܕܝܣܪܝܠ
27 For, they are firmly gathered in this city against Your Holy Son, Eshu {Y’shu}, whom You have anointed; Herudes {Herod}, and Pilatus {Pilate} with the Amme {the People}, and The Kensha d’IysraIyl {The Assembly of Israel},

ܠܡܥܒܕ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܐܝܕܟ ܘܨܒܝܢܟ ܩܕܡ ܪܫܡ ܕܢܗܘܐ
28 to do all what Your hand, and Your will, previously foreordained would happen.

ܘܐܦ ܗܫܐ ܡܪܝܐ ܚܘܪ ܘܚܙܝ ܠܠܘܚܡܝܗܘܢ ܘܗܒ ܠܥܒܕܝܟ ܕܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܡܟܪܙܝܢ ܡܠܬܟ
29 And also now, MarYa {Lord-YHWH}, look and see, for, they are threatening, and give boldness {lit. an open eye} unto Your Servants to be Proclaiming Your Word,

ܟܕ ܐܝܕܟ ܡܘܫܛ ܐܢܬ ܠܐܣܘܬܐ ܘܠܓܒܪܘܬܐ ܘܠܐܬܘܬܐ ܕܢܗܘܝܢ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܒܪܟ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܝܫܘܥ
30 while You stretch out Your hand for healings, and for wonders, and for signs, which will be in The Name of Your Holy Son, Eshu {Y’shu}.”

ܘܟܕ ܒܥܘ ܘܐܬܟܫܦܘ ܐܬܬܙܝܥ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܒܗ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
31 And while they were seeking, and were softly praying, the place in which they were gathered was shaken, and they were all filled with The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, and they were speaking The Miltha d’Alaha {The Word of God} with boldness {lit. with an open eye}.

ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܗܘܘ ܚܕܐ ܢܦܫ ܘܚܕ ܪܥܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܢܟܣܐ ܕܩܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܕܝܠܗ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܓܘܐ ܗܘܐ
32 Then, for The Kensha {The Gathering/The Assembly}, of those men who had believed, there was one soul, and one mind, and no man from them said there was, concerning the goods which were possessed, that they were their own, but rather, every thing that there was for them; that was common.

ܘܒܚܝܠܐ ܪܒܐ ܡܣܗܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܥܠ ܩܝܡܬܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܥܡ ܟܠܗܘܢ
33 And in Great Power they were Testifying; The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, concerning The Resurrection of Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}, and there was Great Taybutha {Grace} with them all.

ܘܐܢܫ ܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܗܘܢ ܕܨܪܝܟ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܩܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܩܘܪܝܐ ܘܒܬܐ ܡܙܒܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܝܬܝܢ ܕܡܝܐ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܡܙܕܒܢ
34 And there was not a nash {a man} among them who lacked, for, those who had acquired fields and houses, were selling them, and bringing the price of the thing which they sold,

ܘܣܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܘܬ ܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܡܬܝܗܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܐܝܟ ܡܕܡ ܕܣܢܝܩ ܗܘܐ
35 and were setting it at the feet of The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, and there was given unto each nash {nan} according to the thing which was lacking.

ܝܘܣܦ ܕܝܢ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܟܢܝ ܒܪܢܒܐ ܡܢ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܕܡܬܬܪܓܡ ܒܪܐ ܕܒܘܝܐܐ ܠܘܝܐ ܡܢ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܩܘܦܪܣ
36 Yet, Yuseph {Joseph}, that one who was named Bar-Naba {Barnabas} by The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, which is interpreted Bra d’Buya’a {the Son of Encouragement}, a Luaya {a Levite} from the region of Qupras {Cyprus},

ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܘܙܒܢܗ ܘܐܝܬܝ ܕܡܝܗ ܘܣܡ ܩܕܡ ܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܫܠܝܚܐ
37 there was for him {i.e. he had}, a field, and he sold it and brought the price and set it before the feet of The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones},

ܘܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܥܡ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܙܒܢ ܗܘܐ ܩܪܝܬܗ
1 and one man whose name was KhananYa {Ananias}, with his wife whose name was Shaphira {Sapphira/Beautiful}, had sold a field,

ܘܫܩܠ ܡܢ ܛܝܡܝܗ ܘܛܫܝ ܟܕ ܪܓܝܫܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܗ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܘܐܝܬܝ ܡܢܗ ܡܢ ܟܣܦܐ ܘܣܡ ܩܕܡ ܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܫܠܝܚܐ
2 and took away from its price, and hid it, while his wife was aware with regard to it. And he brought some from the silver, and set it before the feet of The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܡܢܘ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܡܠܐ ܣܛܢܐ ܠܒܟ ܕܬܕܓܠ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܬܛܫܐ ܡܢ ܟܣܦܐ ܕܕܡܝܗ ܕܩܪܝܬܐ
3 And Shimeun {Simeon} said unto him, “KhananYa {Ananias}, how is this thing which satana has filled your heart, that you would lie to The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, and would hide from the silver of the price of the field?

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܠܟ ܗܘܬ ܥܕܠܐ ܬܙܕܒܢ ܘܡܢ ܕܐܙܕܒܢܬ ܬܘܒ ܐܢܬ ܫܠܝܛ ܗܘܝܬ ܥܠ ܕܡܝܗ ܠܡܢܐ ܣܡܬ ܒܠܒܟ ܕܬܥܒܕ ܨܒܘܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܠܐ ܕܓܠܬ ܒܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܐܠܗܐ
4 Was it not your own before it was to be sold? And once sold, you again had authority concerning the price. Why did you put it in your heart that this thing would be done? You didn’t lie to the sons of men, but rather, to Alaha {God}!”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܢܦܠ ܘܡܝܬ ܘܗܘܬ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܒܟܠܗܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܫܡܥܘ
5 And when KhananYa {Ananias} had heard these words, he fell and died, and there was great fear among all those who heard of it.

ܘܩܡܘ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܠܝܡܝܢ ܒܗܘܢ ܘܟܢܫܘܗܝ ܘܐܦܩܘ ܩܒܪܘܗܝ
6 And there arose those who were young men among them, and they collected him, and went out, burying him.

ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܕܗܘܝ ܬܠܬ ܫܥܝܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܥܠܬ ܟܕ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܢܐ ܗܘܐ
7 And it happened, after three hours, his wife also entered, while not knowing what had happened.

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܐܢ ܒܗܠܝܢ ܕܡܝܐ ܙܒܢܬܘܢ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܬ ܐܝܢ ܒܗܠܝܢ ܕܡܝܐ
8 Shimeun {Simeon} said unto her, “Say to me if it was at these prices that you sold the field?” Then she said, “Yes, at these prices.”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܫܬܘܝܬܘܢ ܠܡܢܣܝܘ ܪܘܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܗܐ ܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܩܒܘܪܘܗܝ ܕܒܥܠܟܝ ܒܬܪܥܐ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܢܦܩܘܢܟܝ
9 Shimeun {Simeon} said unto her, “Because you were of agreement to test The Rukheh d’MarYa {The Spirit of The Lord-YHWH}, look! The feet of the buriers of your husband are at the door, and they will take you out!”

ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܢܦܠܬ ܩܕܡ ܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܡܝܬܬ ܘܥܠܘ ܥܠܝܡܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܐܫܟܚܘܗ ܟܕ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܩܦܣܘ ܐܘܒܠܘ ܩܒܪܘܗ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܒܥܠܗ
10 And at that moment she fell before their feet and died, and those young men entered, and they found her after she died, and they collected her and took her, burying her next to her husband.

ܘܗܘܬ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܥܕܬܐ ܘܒܟܠܗܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܫܡܥܘ
11 And there was great fear in all The Edtha {The Assembly}, and in all those who heard of it.

ܘܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܝ ܒܝܕ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܓܒܪܘܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܒܥܡܐ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܒܐܣܛܘܐ ܕܫܠܝܡܘܢ
12 And there was done by The Hand of The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, signs and many wonders among the Ama {the People}, and all were gathering together at The Portico of Shliymun {Solomon}.

ܘܡܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܡܡܪܚ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܬܩܪܒ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܡܘܪܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܐ
13 And from the other men, no nash {man} was bold that they should come near unto them, but, the Ama {the People} were honoring them,

ܘܝܬܝܪ ܡܬܬܘܣܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܡܪܝܐ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܘܕܢܫܐ
14 and an excessive amount were added; those who were believing in MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}; a multitude of men and of women,

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܒܫܘܩܐ ܡܦܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܟܪܝܗܐ ܟܕ ܪܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܥܪܣܬܐ ܕܐܡܬܝ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܐܬܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܦܢ ܛܠܢܝܬܗ ܬܓܢ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ
15 in such a way, that into the streets they were bringing out the sick after they were placed on pallets, so that whenever it was that Shimeun {Simeon} would come, even his shadow might rest upon them.

ܐܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܕܚܕܪܝ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܟܕ ܡܝܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܪܝܗܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܘܡܬܚܠܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ
16 Then there were coming many unto them from the other cities surrounding Urishlem {Jerusalem}, while they were bringing the sick and those who were having for them unclean spirits, and they all were healed.

ܘܐܬܡܠܝ ܗܘܐ ܚܣܡܐ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܥܡܗ ܕܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܕܙܕܘܩܝܐ
17 And The Rab Kahne {the Priest’s Chief} was filled with envy, and all those who were with him, that is, those being from the doctrine of the Zaduqaye {Sadducees},

ܘܐܪܡܝܘ ܐܝܕܝܐ ܥܠ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܐܚܕܘ ܐܣܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ
18 and they threw their hands upon The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, and took hold on them, and bound them in the prisoner’s house.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܦܬܚ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܘܐܦܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
19 Then, in the night, The Malaka d’MarYa {The Heavenly Messenger of The Lord-YHWH} opened the gate of the prisoner’s house, and brought them out, and said unto them,

ܙܠܘ ܩܘܡܘ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܡܠܠܘ ܠܥܡܐ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܚܝܐ
20 “Go, stand in The Haykla {The Temple}, and speak unto the Ama {the People} all these Words of Life.”

ܘܢܦܩܘ ܥܕܢ ܫܦܪܐ ܘܥܠܘ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܡܠܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܡܗ ܩܪܘ ܠܚܒܪܝܗܘܢ ܘܠܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܝܣܪܝܠ ܘܫܕܪܘ ܠܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܕܢܝܬܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܫܠܝܚܐ
21 And they went out at the time of dawn and entered unto The Haykla {The Temple}, and were teaching. Then, The Rab Kahne {the Priest’s Chief}, and those who were with him, called for their companions and for the Qashishe d’IysraIyl {The Elders of Israel}, and sent them unto the prisoner’s house, so that they should bring them; The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}.

ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠܘ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܫܬܕܪܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܘܗܦܟܘ ܐܬܘ
22 And when those left, who were sent from them, they didn’t find them in the prisoner’s house, and they returned, coming back

ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܫܟܚܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܕܐܚܝܕ ܙܗܝܪܐܝܬ ܘܐܦ ܠܢܛܘܪܐ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܥܠ ܬܪܥܐ ܘܦܬܚܢ ܘܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܢ ܬܡܢ
23 saying, “We found the prisoner’s house closed securely, and also the guards standing at the gate, and we opened it, and no nash {man} did we find there.”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܐܪܟܘܢܐ ܕܗܝܟܠܐ ܬܘܝܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܡܬܚܫܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܡܢܐ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ
24 And when the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs}, and the Rulers of The Haykla {The Temple} heard these words, they were amazed, and concerning them were pondering what this was.

ܘܐܬܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܘܕܥ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܚܒܫܬܘܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܗܐ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܡܠܦܝܢ ܠܥܡܐ
25 And there came a nash {a man} which informed them that those men who were imprisoned in the prisoner’s house; look! They are standing in The Haykla {The Temple}, and are teaching the Ama {the People}.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܙܠܘ ܐܪܟܘܢܐ ܥܡ ܕܚܫܐ ܕܢܝܬܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐ ܒܩܛܝܪܐ ܕܚܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܪܓܘܡ ܐܢܘܢ ܥܡܐ
26 Then, the Rulers departed with the attendants, so that they might bring them, not with violence, for, they were fearing that perhaps the Ama {the People} would stone them.

ܘܟܕ ܐܝܬܝܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܩܝܡܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܩܕܡ ܟܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܘܐܩܦ ܗܘܐ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
27 And when they brought them, they stood them before all the gathering, and The Rab Kahne {The Priest’s Chief} was proceeding to speak unto them,

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܦܩܕ ܦܩܕܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܬܠܦܘܢ ܒܫܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܗܐ ܡܠܝܬܘܢܗ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܡܢ ܝܘܠܦܢܟܘܢ ܘܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܬܝܬܘܢ ܥܠܝܢ ܕܡܗ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܗܢܐ
28 “Had we not certainly given command unto you that no man was to teach in this name? Yet, look! You have filled Urishlem {Jerusalem} with your doctrine, and you are desiring that the blood of this man should come upon us!”

ܥܢܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܥܡ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܐ ܠܡܬܛܦܣܘ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܕܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ
29 Shimeun {Simeon} responded, together with The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, and said unto them, “It is right for us to be persuaded unto Alaha {God}, more so than unto the sons of men.

ܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܒܗܬܢ ܐܩܝܡ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܩܛܠܬܘܢ ܟܕ ܬܠܝܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܥܠ ܩܝܣܐ
30 The Alaha {God} of our fathers raised up Eshu {Y’shu}, whom you killed when you lifted Him up on The Tree.

ܠܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܐܩܝܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܪܫܐ ܘܡܚܝܢܐ ܘܐܪܝܡܗ ܒܝܡܝܢܗ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܬܠ ܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܘܫܘܒܩܢ ܚܛܗܐ ܠܝܣܪܝܠ
31 For, Alaha {God} has established this One, The Chief and The Life Giver, and exalted Him at His right, as The One who gives repentance, and forgiveness of sin unto IysraIyl {Israel}.

ܘܚܢܢ ܣܗܕܐ ܚܢܢ ܕܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܗܘ ܕܝܗܒ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܒܗ
32 And we, we are witnesses of these matters, and The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, The One whom Alaha {God} gives unto those who are believing in Him.”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܗܘܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܡܬܓܘܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܪܘܓܙܐ ܘܡܬܚܫܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܩܛܠ ܐܢܘܢ
33 And while they were hearing these words, they were inflamed with wrath, and they were determined to kill them.

ܘܩܡ ܗܘܐ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܓܡܠܝܐܝܠ ܡܠܦ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܘܡܝܩܪ ܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܘܦܩܕ ܕܢܦܩܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܫܠܝܚܐ ܠܒܪ ܥܕܢܐ ܙܥܘܪܐ
34 And there arose one from the Phrishe {the Pharisees}, whose name was GamalIyl {Gamaliel}, a doctor of The Namusa {The Law}, and honored from all the Ama {the People}, and commanded that they should send The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones} outside for a little time,

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܒܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܘܚܙܘ ܡܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܥܠ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ
35 and said unto them, “Men, Sons of IysraIyl {Israel}, beware with regard to your souls, and see what is proper for you to do concerning these men!

ܡܢ ܩܕܡ ܓܝܪ ܗܢܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܩܡ ܗܘܐ ܬܘܕܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܕܡܕܡ ܗܘ ܪܒ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܐܝܟ ܐܪܒܥܡܐܐ ܓܒܪܝܢ ܘܗܘ ܐܬܩܛܠ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܐܬܒܕܪܘ ܘܗܘܘ ܐܝܟ ܠܐ ܡܕܡ
36 For, before this time there rose Thuda {Theudas}, and he said concerning his soul that he was something great, and there went after him about four hundred men, and he was killed, and those who went after him were scattered, and they have become as nothing.

ܘܩܡ ܡܢ ܒܬܪܗ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܓܠܝܠܝܐ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܡܬܟܬܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܒܟܣܦ ܪܫܐ ܘܐܣܛܝ ܥܡܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܒܬܪܗ ܘܗܘ ܡܝܬ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܐܬܒܕܪܘ
37 And there rose from after him, Yehuda {Judah/Judas} the Galilaya {the Galilean} in the days that men were enrolled with the head-silver tax {the tribute tax i.e. poll taxes}, and he turned aside many Ama {People} after him. And he died, and all those who were going after him, were scattered.

ܘܗܫܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܦܪܘܩܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܘܫܒܘܩܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܗܕܐ ܡܚܫܒܬܐ ܘܗܢܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܡܫܬܪܝܢ ܘܥܒܪܝܢ
38 And now I say unto you: To depart from these men, and leave them alone, for, if it is there is this thought from the sons of men, and this work, it will dissolve and vanish,

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܡܛܝܐ ܒܐܝܕܝܟܘܢ ܕܬܒܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ ܕܠܡܐ ܬܫܬܟܚܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܘܩܒܠ ܐܠܗܐ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
39 but, if it is from Alaha {God}, there is no ability in your hands that can stop it, lest you be found that it is against Alaha {God} you are standing.”

ܘܐܬܛܦܝܣܘ ܠܗ ܘܩܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܢܓܕܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܦܩܕܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܒܫܡܐ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܘܫܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ
40 And they were persuaded by him, and they called for The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, and they scourged them, and they commanded them that they shouldn’t be speaking in the name of Eshu {Y’shu}, and they released them.

ܘܢܦܩܘ ܡܢ ܩܕܡܝܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܚܕܝܢ ܕܫܘܘ ܗܘܘ ܡܛܠ ܫܡܐ ܕܢܨܛܥܪܘܢ
41 And they went out from before them, while rejoicing that they were worthy, because of The Name, that they would be despised,

ܘܠܐ ܫܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܝܘܡ ܠܡܠܦܘ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܒܒܝܬܐ ܘܠܡܣܒܪܘ ܥܠ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
42 and they were not ceasing everyday to teach in Haykla {The Temple} and at home, and to declare concerning Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

Chapter 6
ܘܒܗܘܢ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܣܓܝܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܪܛܢܘ ܗܘܘ ܝܘܢܝܐ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܥܠ ܥܒܪܝܐ ܕܡܬܒܣܝܢ ܗܘܝ ܐܪܡܠܬܗܘܢ ܒܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܟܠܝܘܡ
1 And in those days, when The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students} were increasing, The Yawnaye Talmiyde {The Greek Disciples} were complaining about The Ebraye {The Hebrews}; that their widows were neglected in the daily ministration.

ܘܩܪܘ ܬܪܥܣܪ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܠܟܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܫܦܝܪ ܕܢܫܒܘܩ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܢܫܡܫ ܦܬܘܪܐ
2 And The Twelve Shlikhe {Sent Ones} called for all The Kensha {The Assembly} of The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students}, and said unto them, “It isn’t fitting that we should leave The Miltha d’Alaha {The Word of God} and should be serving tables.

ܒܨܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܚܝ ܘܓܒܘ ܫܒܥܐ ܓܒܪܝܢ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܣܗܕܘܬܐ ܘܡܠܝܢ ܪܘܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܚܟܡܬܐ ܘܢܩܝܡ ܐܢܘܢ ܥܠ ܗܕܐ ܨܒܘܬܐ
3 Now then, brothers, examine and choose seven men from you concerning whom is a good Testimony, and who are full of The Rukha d’MarYa {The Spirit of The Lord-YHWH}, and Wisdom. And establish them concerning this matter.

ܘܚܢܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܐܡܝܢܝܢ ܒܨܠܘܬܐ ܘܒܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܡܠܬܐ
4 And we will be constantly in Prayer, and in The Ministry of The Word.”

ܘܫܦܪܬ ܗܕܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܩܕܡ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܘܓܒܘ ܠܐܣܛܦܢܘܣ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܡܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܘܠܦܪܟܪܘܣ ܘܠܢܝܩܢܘܪ ܘܠܛܝܡܘܢ ܘܠܦܪܡܢܐ ܘܠܢܝܩܠܐܘܣ ܓܝܘܪܐ ܐܢܛܝܘܟܝܐ
5 And this word was pleasing before all the Ama {the People}, and they chose Estephanus {Stephen}, a man who was full of Haymanutha {Faith} and The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, and Philipus {Philip}, and Prakarus {Prochorus}, and Niqanur {Nicanor}, and Timun {Timon}, and Parmena {Parmenas}, and Niqalus {Nicolas}, an Antiukia {Antiochene} proselyte.

ܗܠܝܢ ܩܡܘ ܩܕܡܝܗܘܢ ܕܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܟܕ ܨܠܝܘ ܣܡܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܐ
6 These stood before The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, and when they had prayed, they placed The Hand upon them.

ܘܡܠܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܪܒܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܘܣܓܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܝܢܐ ܕܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܛܒ ܘܥܡܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܡܫܬܡܥ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ
7 And The Word of Alaha {God} was increased, and the number of The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students} was greatly multiplied in Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and many Ama {People} from the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} were obedient to The Haymanutha {The Faith}.

ܐܣܛܦܢܘܣ ܕܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܘܚܝܠܐ ܘܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܬܕܡܪܬܐ ܒܥܡܐ
8 Now, Estephanus {Stephen} was full of Taybutha {Grace} and Khayla {Power}, and he performed signs and miracles among the Ama {the People}.

ܘܩܡܘ ܗܘܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܕܠܘܒܪܛܝܢܘ ܩܘܪܝܢܝܐ ܘܐܠܟܣܢܕܪܝܐ ܘܕܡܢ ܩܝܠܝܩܝܐ ܘܡܢ ܐܣܝܐ ܘܕܪܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡ ܐܣܛܦܢܘܣ
9 And there arose men from The Kenushtha {The Synagogue}, who were called the Lubertinu {The Libertines/The Freedmen}: Qurinaye {Cyrenians} and Aleksandraye {Alexandrians}, and from Qiliqia {Cilicia}, and from Asia {i.e. Asia-minor}. And they were disputing with Estephanus {Stephen},

ܘܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܩܡ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܚܟܡܬܐ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܕܡܡܠܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܗ
10 and they were not able to rise to oppose The Wisdom and The Rukha {The Spirit} who spoke in him.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܕܪܘ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܘܐܠܦܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܕܚܢܢ ܫܡܥܢܝܗܝ ܕܐܡܪ ܡܠܐ ܕܓܘܕܦܐ ܥܠ ܡܘܫܐ ܘܥܠ ܐܠܗܐ
11 Afterwards, they sent men and ordered that they should say, “We heard that he spoke words of blasphemy concerning Mushe {Moses}, and concerning Alaha {God}.”

ܘܫܓܫܘ ܠܥܡܐ ܘܠܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܠܣܦܪܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܘܩܡܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܘܚܛܦܘ ܐܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܠܡܨܥܬ ܟܢܫܐ
12 And they disturbed the Ama {the People}, and the Qashishe {the Elders}, and the Saphre {the Scribes}, and they came and stood against him, and seized him, bringing him to the midst of The Council,

ܘܐܩܝܡܘ ܣܗܕܐ ܕܓܠܐ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܢܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܠܐ ܫܠܐ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ ܡܠܐ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܘܥܠ ܐܬܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܩܕܝܫܐ
13 and they raised up false witnesses, who said, “This man doesn’t cease to speak words opposing The Namusa {The Law}, and concerning this Holy Place,

ܚܢܢ ܓܝܪ ܫܡܥܢܝܗܝ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܗܢܐ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܗܘ ܢܫܪܝܘܗܝ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܢܚܠܦ ܥܝܕܐ ܕܐܫܠܡ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܘܫܐ
14 for, we heard that he said that this Eshu Natsraya {Y’shu, the Nazarene}, he will destroy this place, and will change the customs which Mushe {Moses} delivered unto us.”

ܘܚܪܘ ܒܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܬܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܚܙܘ ܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܐܝܟ ܦܪܨܘܦܐ ܕܡܠܐܟܐ
15 And they all looked upon him; those who were sitting in The Kenushtha {The Synagogue/The Assembly}, and they saw his face, as the face of a Malaka {a Heavenly Messenger}.

Chapter 7
ܘܫܐܠܗ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܢܝܢ
1 And The Rab Kahne {The Priest’s Chief} asked him if these things were so.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܘܐܒܗܬܢ ܫܡܥܘ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܐܒܘܢ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܟܕ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܒܝܬ ܢܗܪܝܢ ܥܕ ܠܐ ܢܐܬܐ ܢܥܡܪ ܒܚܪܢ
2 He then said, “Men, brothers, and our fathers, listen! The Alaha {God} of Glory appeared unto our father Abraham when he was in Beth Nahrin {Mesopotamia}; while not yet coming to dwell in Kharan {Haran},

ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܕܦܘܩ ܡܢ ܐܪܥܟ ܘܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܒܢܝ ܛܘܗܡܟ ܘܬܐ ܠܐܪܥܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܐܚܘܝܟ
3 and had said unto him: ‘Go out from your land and from being with the sons of your lineage, and come unto the land which I will show you.’

ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܦܩ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܡܢ ܐܪܥܐ ܕܟܠܕܝܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܥܡܪ ܒܚܪܢ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܟܕ ܡܝܬ ܐܒܘܗܝ ܫܢܝܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܐܪܥܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܒܗ ܥܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܘܡܢܐ
4 And then, Abraham went out from the land of the Kaldaye {the Chaldaeans}, and came to dwell in Kharan {Haran}, and from there, after his father had died, Alaha {God} moved him unto this land, in which you are dwelling today,

ܘܠܐ ܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܝܪܬܘܬܐ ܒܗ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܕܘܪܟܬܐ ܕܪܓܠܐ ܘܐܫܬܘܕܝ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܬܠܝܗ ܠܗ ܐܝܟ ܕܠܡܐܪܬܗ ܠܗ ܘܠܙܪܥܗ ܟܕ ܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܒܪܐ
5 and didn’t give unto him an inheritance in it, not even a step of his foot, and professed that He would give it unto him as an inheritance, for him, and for his seed, while there was no son for him.

ܘܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܙܪܥܟ ܬܘܬܒܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܢܘܟܪܝܬܐ ܘܢܫܥܒܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܢܒܐܫܘܢ ܠܗ ܐܪܒܥܡܐܐ ܫܢܝܢ
6 And Alaha {God} had spoke with him, when He said unto him: ‘Your seed will be strangers in a foreign land, and they will be enslaved, and will be mistreated for four hundred years.

ܘܠܥܡܐ ܕܢܦܠܚܘܢ ܥܒܕܘܬܐ ܐܕܘܢܝܘܗܝ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܢܦܩܘܢ ܘܢܦܠܚܘܢ ܠܝ ܒܐܬܪܐ ܗܢܐ
7 And unto the Ama {the People} whom they will be in servitude, I will judge, says Alaha {God}. And after this, they will go out, and will work for Me, in this place.’

ܘܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܕܝܬܩܐ ܕܓܙܘܪܬܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܐܝܣܚܩ ܘܓܙܪܗ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܬܡܝܢܝܐ ܘܐܝܣܚܩ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܝܥܩܘܒ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܬܪܥܣܪ ܐܒܗܬܢ
8 And He gave unto him The Covenant of Circumcision, and afterwards he gave birth to Iskhaq {Isaac}, and circumcised him in the eighth day. And Iskhaq {Isaac} gave birth to Yaqub {Jacob}, and Yaqub {Jacob} gave birth to our twelve fathers.

ܘܗܢܘܢ ܐܒܗܬܢ ܛܢܘ ܒܝܘܣܦ ܘܙܒܢܘܗܝ ܠܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܐܠܗܐ ܥܡܗ ܗܘܐ
9 And they, our fathers, were jealous with Yuseph {Joseph}, and sold him unto Mitsriyn {Egypt}, and Alaha {God} was with him,

ܘܦܪܩܗ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܠܘܨܘܗܝ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܘܚܟܡܬܐ ܩܕܡ ܦܪܥܘܢ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ ܪܫܐ ܥܠ ܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܥܠ ܟܠܗ ܒܝܬܗ
10 and had delivered him from all his afflictions, and gave him Taybutha {Grace} and Wisdom before Pherun {Pharaoh}, the King of Mitsriyn {Egypt}, and raised him head over Mitsriyn {Egypt}, and over all his house.

ܘܗܘܐ ܟܦܢܐ ܘܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܒܐܪܥܐ ܕܟܢܥܢ ܘܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܣܒܥ ܠܐܒܗܬܢ
11 And there was famine and great affliction in all Mitsriyn {Egypt}, and in the land of Kanan {Canaan}, and there wasn’t enough for our fathers.

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܕܐܝܬ ܥܒܘܪܐ ܒܡܨܪܝܢ ܫܕܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܒܗܬܢ ܠܘܩܕܡ
12 And when Yaqub {Jacob} had heard that there was grain in Mitsriyn {Egypt}, he sent our fathers first,

ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠܘ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܐܘܕܥ ܝܘܣܦ ܢܦܫܗ ܠܐܚܘܗܝ ܘܐܬܝܕܥ ܠܦܪܥܘܢ ܛܘܗܡܗ ܕܝܘܣܦ
13 and when they had gone the second time, Yuseph {Joseph} made his soul known unto his brothers, and the lineage of Yuseph {Joseph} was made known unto Pherun {Pharaoh}.

ܘܫܕܪ ܗܘܐ ܝܘܣܦ ܘܐܝܬܝܗ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܠܟܠܗ ܛܘܗܡܗ ܘܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܡܢܝܢܐ ܫܒܥܝܢ ܘܚܡܫ ܢܦܫܢ
14 And Yuseph {Joseph} had sent for and brought his father Yaqub {Jacob} and all his lineage, and they were being in number *seventy and five souls.

*Septuagint reading here. Stephen was a “Hellenistic Jewish Christian, who would have used the Greek translation of the Scriptures, which alone has this number recorded in it. The Hebrew and the Aramaic translation of it, reads ‘seventy souls.’

ܘܢܚܬ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܠܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܡܝܬ ܬܡܢ ܗܘ ܘܐܒܗܬܢ
15 And Yaqub {Jacob} had descended unto Mitsriyn {Egypt}, and had died there; he and our fathers,

ܘܐܫܬܢܝ ܠܫܟܝܡ ܘܐܬܬܣܝܡ ܒܩܒܪܐ ܕܙܒܢ ܗܘܐ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܒܟܣܦܐ ܡܢ ܒܢܝ ܚܡܘܪ
16 and he had moved unto Shkim {Sychem}, and was put in the tomb which Abraham had bought with the silver from the son of Khamur {Hamor},

ܘܟܕ ܡܛܝ ܗܘܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܐܫܬܘܕܝ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܘܡܬܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܐܒܪܗܡ ܣܓܝ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܐ ܘܬܩܦ ܒܡܨܪܝܢ
17 And when the time had arrived of the thing which was promised, by Alaha {God} swearing unto Abraham; the Ama {the People} had increased, and were made strong in Mitsriyn {Egypt},

ܥܕܡܐ ܕܩܡ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܥܠ ܡܨܪܝܢ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܠܝܘܣܦ
18 until there arose another King over Mitsriyn {Egypt}, who had not been known unto Yuseph {Joseph},

ܘܐܨܛܢܥ ܥܠ ܛܘܗܡܢ ܘܐܒܐܫ ܠܐܒܗܬܢ ܘܦܩܕ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܡܫܬܕܝܢ ܝܠܘܕܝܗܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܚܘܢ
19 and had acted guilefully against our lineage, and had ill-treated our fathers, and had commanded that they throw away our infants, so that they shouldn’t live.

ܒܗ ܒܙܒܢܐ ܗܘ ܐܬܝܠܕ ܡܘܫܐ ܘܪܚܝܡ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܬܪܒܝ ܝܪܚܐ ܬܠܬܐ ܒܝܬ ܐܒܘܗܝ
20 In that time, that one, Mushe {Moses}, was given birth, and was dearly loved unto Alaha {God}, and grew up three months in his father’s house.

ܘܟܕ ܐܫܬܕܝ ܡܢ ܐܡܗ ܐܫܟܚܬܗ ܒܪܬ ܦܪܥܘܢ ܘܪܒܝܬܗ ܠܗ ܠܒܪܐ
21 And when he was thrown away from his mother, Pherun’s {Pharaoh’s} daughter found him, and raised him for herself; for a son.

ܘܐܬܪܕܝ ܡܘܫܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܚܟܡܬܐ ܕܡܨܪܝܐ ܘܥܬܝܕ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܠܘܗܝ ܘܐܦ ܒܥܒܕܘܗܝ
22 And Mushe {Moses} was trained in all the wisdom of the Mitsraye {the Egyptians}, and was prepared in words, and also in deeds.

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܒܪ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܣܠܩ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܠܒܗ ܕܢܣܥܘܪ ܠܐܚܘܗܝ ܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ
23 And when he was a son of forty years, it had risen upon his heart that he should visit his brothers, The Sons of IysraIyl {Israel},

ܘܚܙܐ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܒܢܝ ܫܪܒܬܗ ܕܡܬܕܒܪ ܒܩܛܝܪܐ ܘܬܒܥܗ ܘܥܒܕ ܠܗ ܕܝܢܐ ܘܩܛܠܗ ܠܡܨܪܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܡܣܟܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ
24 and he saw one from the sons of his Family who was oppressed with violence, and avenged him, and performed for him judgment, and killed the Mitsraya {the Egyptian} who was doing wrong to him,

ܘܣܒܪ ܕܡܣܬܟܠܝܢ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܘܪܩܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܣܬܟܠܘ
25 and had hoped that his brothers, The Sons of IysraIyl {Israel}, would understand that Alaha {God}, through his hand, was giving redemption unto them, and they didn’t understand.

ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܢܨܝܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܚܕ ܥܡ ܚܕ ܘܡܦܝܣ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܫܬܝܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܡܢܐ ܡܣܟܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܚܕ ܒܚܕ
26 And another day, he saw when they quarreled one with another, and had entreated for them that they should make peace, when he said: ‘Men, you are brothers! On what account are you wronging one with another?’

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܣܟܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܚܒܪܗ ܕܚܩܗ ܡܢ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܢܘ ܐܩܝܡܟ ܥܠܝܢ ܪܫܐ ܘܕܝܢܐ
27 But, that one who was doing wrong with his companion, pushed him away from him, and said unto him, ‘Who established you over us as a Chief and a Judge?

ܕܠܡܐ ܠܡܩܛܠܢܝ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܬ ܐܝܟ ܕܩܛܠܬ ܐܬܡܠܝ ܠܡܨܪܝܐ
28 Perhaps you seek to kill me as that you killed the Mitsraya {the Egyptian} yesterday?’

ܘܥܪܩ ܡܘܫܐ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܘܗܘܐ ܬܘܬܒܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܕܡܕܝܢ ܘܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܬܪܝܢ ܒܢܝܢ
29 And Mushe {Moses} fled at that word, and was a sojourner in the land of Midian, and there was unto him two sons.

ܘܟܕ ܡܠܝ ܠܗ ܬܡܢ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܕܛܘܪ ܣܝܢܝ ܡܠܐܟܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܒܢܘܪܐ ܕܝܩܕܐ ܒܣܢܝܐ
30 And after forty years were fulfilled for him there, there appeared unto him The Malakeh d’MarYa {The Heavenly Messenger of The Lord-YHWH} in the wilderness of Mount Sinai, in a flame which burned in a thorn bush.

ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܐܬܕܡܪ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܘܟܕ ܐܬܩܪܒ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܝܐ ܒܩܠܐ
31 And when Mushe {Moses} saw it, he was amazed at the appearance, and when he came near, so that he might see it, in a voice MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} said unto him,

ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܒܗܝܟ ܐܠܗܗ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܘܕܐܝܣܚܩ ܘܕܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܟܕ ܪܬܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܠܐ ܡܡܪܚ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܚܘܪ ܒܚܙܘܐ
32 “I AM, The Alaha {The God} of your fathers, The Alaheh {The God} of Abraham, and of Iskhaq {Isaac}, and of Yaqub {Jacob}.” And afterwards Mushe {Moses} was trembling, not daring that he should look at the appearance.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܝܐ ܫܪܝ ܡܣܢܝܟ ܡܢ ܪܓܠܝܟ ܐܪܥܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܩܐܡ ܐܢܬ ܒܗ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܗܝ
33 And MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} said unto him: “Loosen your sandals from your feet, for, the ground upon which you stand is Qadisha {Holy}.

ܡܚܙܐ ܚܙܝܬ ܐܘܠܨܢܗ ܕܥܡܝ ܕܒܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܬܢܚܬܗ ܫܡܥܬ ܘܢܚܬܬ ܕܐܦܪܘܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܗܫܐ ܬܐ ܐܫܕܪܟ ܠܡܨܪܝܢ
34 Seeing, I have seen the affliction of Ami {My People} who are in Mitsriyn {Egypt}, and I have heard their groaning, and have descended, so that I should deliver them. And now, come, I will send you unto Mitsriyn {Egypt}.”

ܠܗܢܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܕܟܦܪܘ ܒܗ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܡܢܘ ܐܩܝܡܟ ܥܠܝܢ ܪܫܐ ܘܕܝܢܐ ܠܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܪܫܐ ܘܦܪܘܩܐ ܫܕܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗ ܒܣܢܝܐ
35 This Mushe {Moses}, with regard to whom they had denied, when they said, ‘Who has established you over us a Chief and a Judge?’ For, this one Alaha {God} had sent the Chief and the Deliverer for them, by the hands of The Malaka {The Heavenly Messenger}, that one who had appeared unto him in the thorn bush.

ܗܢܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܦܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܥܒܕ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܬܕܡܪܬܐ ܘܓܒܪܘܬܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܕܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܒܝܡܐ ܕܣܘܦ ܘܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܫܢܝܢ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ
36 This is he who brought them out, when he had performed signs, and miracles, and wonders, in the land of Mitsriyn {Egypt}, and at the Sea of Suph {the Sea of Reeds}, and in the wilderness; forty years.

ܗܢܘ ܡܘܫܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܡܪ ܠܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܢܩܝܡ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܢ ܐܚܝܟܘܢ ܐܟܘܬܝ ܠܗ ܬܫܡܥܘܢ
37 This is Mushe {Moses}, he who said unto the sons of IysraIyl {Israel}, that “A Nabiya {A Prophet} shall MarYa Alaha {The Lord-YHWH, God} raise up for you from your brothers, like me. Listen unto Him!’

ܗܢܘ ܕܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܥܡ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܗܘ ܕܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗ ܘܥܡ ܐܒܗܬܢ ܒܛܘܪܐ ܕܣܝܢܝ ܘܗܘܝܘ ܕܩܒܠ ܡܠܐ ܚܝܬܐ ܕܠܢ ܢܬܠ
38 This is he who was in The Kenushtha {The Synagogue/The Assembly} in the wilderness, with The Malaka {The Heavenly Messenger} who had spoken with him, and with our fathers, at Mount Sinai, and is he who received The Living Words to give unto us,

ܘܠܐ ܨܒܘ ܠܡܬܕܢܝܘ ܠܗ ܐܒܗܬܢ ܐܠܐ ܫܒܩܘܗܝ ܘܒܠܒܘܬܗܘܢ ܗܦܟܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܨܪܝܢ
39 and our fathers were not willing to submit unto him, but rather, departed, and in their hearts they turned again unto Mitsriyn {Egypt},

ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܐܗܪܘܢ ܥܒܕ ܠܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܩܕܡܝܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܗܢܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܕܐܦܩܢ ܡܢ ܐܪܥܐ ܕܡܨܪܝܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܢܐ ܗܘܝܗܝ
40 when they said unto Ahrun {Aaron}: “Make for us alahe {gods} that will go before us, on account that this Mushe {Moses} who has brought us out from the land of Mitsriyn {Egypt}, we don’t know what has become of him.”

ܘܥܒܕܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܓܠܐ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܕܒܚܘ ܕܒܚܐ ܠܦܬܟܪܐ ܘܡܬܒܣܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܥܒܕ ܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ
41 And he made for them the calf in those days, and they slaughtered animal sacrifices unto their sculpted images, and they were rejoicing in their hands’ work.

ܘܗܦܟ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܫܠܡ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܦܠܚܝܢ ܠܚܝܠܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܠܡܐ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܢܟܣܬܐ ܐܘ ܕܒܚܬܐ ܩܪܒܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ
42 And Alaha {God} turned, and gave them up, so that they would be laboring for the powers of the Heavens, as it is written in the writing of the Nabiye {the Prophets}: ‘Was it for forty years in the wilderness, the victim, or the sacrifice, you brought near unto Me, Sons of IysraIyl {Israel}?

ܐܠܐ ܫܩܠܬܘܢ ܡܫܟܢܗ ܕܡܠܟܘܡ ܘܟܘܟܒܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܪܦܢ ܕܡܘܬܐ ܕܥܒܕܬܘܢ ܕܬܗܘܘܢ ܣܓܕܝܢ ܠܗܝܢ ܐܫܢܝܟܘܢ ܠܗܠ ܡܢ ܒܒܠ
43 But rather, you took up the tabernacle of Malkum {Milcom/Moloch}, and the star of the deity of Rephan; those images which you had made, so that you might bow down unto them. I will remove you further away than Babel.’

ܗܐ ܡܫܟܢܐ ܕܣܗܕܘܬܐ ܕܐܒܗܬܢ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܦܩܕ ܗܘ ܕܡܠܠ ܥܡ ܡܘܫܐ ܠܡܥܒܕܗ ܒܕܡܘܬܐ ܕܚܘܝܗ
44 Look! The Tabernacle of The Testimony of our fathers was there in the wilderness, as He which had commanded Mushe {Moses} who had spoke with him to make in the form that He showed him.

ܘܠܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܡܫܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܡܥܠܘ ܐܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܒܗܬܢ ܥܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐܪܥܐ ܕܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܝܘܪܬܢܐ ܡܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܫܕܐ ܡܢ ܩܕܡܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܬܝܒܠ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܘܗܝ ܕܕܘܝܕ
45 And for this Tabernacle, also, our fathers bringing it, brought it with Eshu {Y’shu/Joshua} unto the land which Alaha {God} gave unto them; the inheritance from those Nations which He had thrown out from before them, and was transported until the days of David;

ܗܘ ܕܐܫܟܚ ܪܚܡܐ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܫܐܠ ܕܢܫܟܚ ܡܫܟܢܐ ܠܐܠܗܗ ܕܝܥܩܘܒ
46 that one who found mercy before, of Alaha {God}, and had asked that there be found a Tabernacle for The Alaheh {The God} of Yaqub {Jacob},

ܫܠܝܡܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܢܐ ܠܗ ܒܝܬܐ
47 yet, Shliymun {Solomon} built The House for Him.

ܘܡܪܝܡܐ ܠܐ ܫܪܐ ܒܥܒܕ ܐܝܕܝܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܡܪ ܢܒܝܐ
48 And The Highest isn’t made to dwell in the work of hands, as which says the Nabiya {the Prophet}:

ܕܫܡܝܐ ܟܘܪܣܝ ܘܐܪܥܐ ܟܘܒܫܐ ܕܬܚܝܬ ܪܓܠܝ ܐܝܢܘ ܒܝܬܐ ܕܬܒܢܘܢ ܠܝ ܐܡܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܘ ܐܝܢܘ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܢܝܚܬܝ
49 ‘The Heavens are My throne, and the Earth is the footstool which is underneath My feet. Which is the house that you will build for Me? Says MarYa {The Lord-YHWH},’ Or, ‘which is the place of My rest?

ܠܐ ܗܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܝܠܝ ܥܒܕܬ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ
50 Look! Did not My own hand make all these things?’

ܐܘ ܩܫܝܝ ܩܕܠܐ ܘܕܠܐ ܓܙܝܪܝܢ ܒܠܒܗܘܢ ܘܒܡܫܡܥܬܗܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܐܒܗܝܟܘܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ
51 Oh! You hard-necked and uncircumcised in your hearts, and in your hearing!! You are constantly standing to oppose The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}. As your fathers, so also you!

ܠܐܝܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܠܐ ܪܕܦܘ ܘܩܛܠܘ ܐܒܗܝܟܘܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܩܕܡܘ ܒܕܩܘ ܥܠ ܡܐܬܝܬܗ ܕܙܕܝܩܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܫܠܡܬܘܢ ܘܩܛܠܬܘܢܝܗܝ
52 For, who from the Nabiye {the Prophets} didn’t your fathers persecute and kill? Those who previously pronounced concerning the coming of The Righteous One, that One whom you delivered up and killed!

ܘܩܒܠܬܘܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܒܝܕ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܕܡܠܐܟܐ ܘܠܐ ܢܛܪܬܘܢܝܗܝ
53 And you have received The Namusa {The Law} by means of The Command of The Malake {The Heavenly Messengers}, and you didn’t observe it!”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܗܘܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܚܡܬܐ ܒܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܘܡܚܪܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܫܢܝܗܘܢ ܥܠܘܗܝ
54 And when they had heard these things, they were filled with anger in their souls, and they were gnashing their teeth at him.

ܘܗܘ ܟܕ ܡܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܚܪ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܚܙܐ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܝܫܘܥ ܟܕ ܩܐܡ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
55 And he, while being full of Haymanutha {Faith} and The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, looked at the Heavens, and saw The Glory of Alaha {God}, and Eshu {Y’shu} while standing on the right side of Alaha {God},

ܘܐܡܪ ܗܐ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܐ ܫܡܝܐ ܟܕ ܦܬܝܚܝܢ ܘܠܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܟܕ ܩܐܡ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
56 and he said, “Look! I see the Heavens while they are opened, and The Son of Man while standing on the right side of Alaha {God}!”

ܘܩܥܘ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܣܟܪܘ ܐܕܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܓܙܡܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܟܠܗܘܢ
57 And they were crying out with a loud voice, and were blocking their ears, and they all were rushing towards him,

ܘܐܚܕܘ ܐܦܩܘܗܝ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܪܓܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܣܗܕܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܣܡܘ ܢܚܬܝܗܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܕܥܠܝܡܐ ܚܕ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܫܐܘܠ
58 and having taken hold of him, they threw him outside of the city, and were stoning him. And the ones who testified against him placed their garments at the feet of a young man, the one who is called Shaul {Saul}.

ܘܪܓܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܠܐܣܛܦܢܘܣ ܟܕ ܡܨܠܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܒܠ ܪܘܚܝ
59 And they were stoning Estephanus {Stephen}, while he was bending down, praying, and saying, “Maran Eshu {Our Lord Y’shu}, receive rukhi {my spirit}!”

ܘܟܕ ܣܡ ܒܘܪܟܐ ܩܥܐ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܢ ܠܐ ܬܩܝܡ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܕܐ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܘܟܕ ܗܕܐ ܐܡܪ ܫܟܒ
60 And while he was kneeling down, he cried out with a loud voice, and said, “Maran {Our Lord}, don’t establish for them this sin!” And when this was spoken, he slept.

Chapter 8
ܫܐܘܠ ܕܝܢ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܫܘܬܦ ܗܘܐ ܒܩܛܠܗ ܘܗܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܗܘ ܝܘܡܐ ܪܕܘܦܝܐ ܪܒܐ ܠܥܕܬܐ ܕܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܐܬܒܕܪܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܩܘܪܝܐ ܕܝܗܘܕ ܘܐܦ ܒܝܬ ܫܡܪܝܐ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ
1 But, Shaul {Saul} had desired and had participated in his murder. And there was in that day a great persecution for The Edtha {The Assembly} which was in Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and they all were scattering in the villages of Yehud {Judea}, and even beth Shamraye {the place of the Samaritans}, except those from The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones} alone.

ܘܩܦܣܘ ܩܒܪܘܗܝ ܠܐܣܛܦܢܘܣ ܓܒܪܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܘܐܬܐܒܠܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܪܘܪܒܐܝܬ
2 And trustworthy men gathered him, burying Estephanus {Stephen}, and they mourned over him greatly.

ܫܐܘܠ ܕܝܢ ܪܕܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܥܕܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܟܕ ܥܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܬܐ ܘܡܓܪܓܪ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܘܠܢܫܐ ܘܡܫܠܡ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ
3 But, Shaul {Saul} was persecuting The Edtheh d’Alaha {The Assembly of God}, while he was entering into homes, and dragging off men and women, and delivered them over to the prisoner’s house.

ܘܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܬܒܕܪܘ ܡܬܟܪܟܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܟܪܙܝܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
4 And those who were scattering, went around and were Proclaiming The Miltha d’Alaha {The Word of God}.

ܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܕܝܢ ܢܚܬ ܠܗ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܫܡܪܝܐ ܘܡܟܪܙ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܠ ܡܫܝܚܐ
5 Then, Philipus {Philip} descended unto a city of the Shamraye {the Samaritans} and Proclaimed unto them, concerning Meshikha {The Anointed One}.

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܠܬܗ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܬܡܢ ܨܝܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܘܡܬܛܦܝܣܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܟܠ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ
6 And when they were hearing his word, the sons of men who were there, were listening carefully unto him, and they were persuaded of all which he had said; the ones who had seen the miraculous signs, which he had performed,

ܣܓܝܐܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܚܝܕܢ ܗܘܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܢܦܩܢ ܗܘܝ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܡܫܪܝܐ ܘܡܚܓܪܐ ܐܬܐܣܝܘ
7 for, many who were seized by unclean spirits, were crying out in a loud voice, and they were cast out from them. And others, paralytic and lame, were healed.

ܘܚܕܘܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܗܝ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
8 And great joy was in that city!

ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܣܝܡܘܢ ܕܥܡܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܒܗ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܒܚܪܫܘܗܝ ܡܛܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܥܡܐ ܕܫܡܪܝܐ ܟܕ ܡܘܪܒ ܗܘܐ ܢܦܫܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܪܒܐ
9 But, there was there, one man whose name was Simun {Simon}, who had dwelt there in the city many seasons, and with sorcery was deceptive unto the Ama d’Shamraye {the People of the Samaritans}, while he was magnifying his soul, and saying, “I am The Great One!”

ܘܨܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܪܘܪܒܐ ܘܕܩܕܩܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܗܢܘ ܚܝܠܗ ܪܒܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
10 And all were giving heed unto him, the great and the small, and they said, “This one is The Great Power of Alaha {God}!”

ܘܡܬܛܦܝܣܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܙܒܢܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܒܚܪܫܘܗܝ ܐܬܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܘܢ
11 And they were all assenting unto him, on account that for many seasons, by his sorcery, he had amazed them.

ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܕܡܣܒܪ ܗܘܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܥܡܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܘܢܫܐ
12 But, when they believed Philipus {Philip}, who had Declared The Malkutha d’Alaha {The Kingdom of God} in The Name of Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}, they were being Immersed {Baptized}; men and women.

ܘܐܦ ܗܘ ܣܝܡܘܢ ܗܝܡܢ ܗܘܐ ܘܥܡܕ ܘܢܩܝܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܚܝܠܐ ܪܘܪܒܐ ܕܗܘܝܢ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܬܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܬܕܡܪ
13 and even Simun {Simon} himself had believed, and was Immersed {Baptized}, and had attached himself unto Philipus {Philip}, and when he had seen the miraculous signs, and the great powers, which were by his hand, he was amazed, and marveled!

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܕܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܕܩܒܠܘ ܥܡܐ ܕܫܡܪܝܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܫܕܪܘ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܠܝܘܚܢܢ
14 And when The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, who were in Urishlem {Jerusalem}, had heard that the Ama d’Shamraye {the People of the Samaritans} had received The Word of Alaha {God}, they sent Shimeun Kepha {Simeon, The Rock}, and Yukhanan {John} unto them,

ܘܢܚܬܘ ܘܨܠܝܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܩܒܠܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
15 and they descended, and prayed over them, so as that they should receive The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness},

ܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܥܠ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܥܕܟܝܠ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܕܝܢ ܥܡܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ
16 for, as yet, He wasn’t upon one from them, but, they were only Immersed {Baptized} in the Name of Maran Eshu {Our Lord Y’shu}.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܣܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܐ ܘܡܩܒܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
17 Then, they were placing The Hand upon them, and they were receiving The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}.

ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܣܝܡܘܢ ܕܒܣܝܡ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܫܠܝܚܐ ܡܬܝܗܒܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܩܪܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܣܦܐ
18 And when Simun {Simon}, saw that The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness} was given through The Hand of The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, he offered silver unto them,

19 while he said, “and also give unto me this power, so that whomever that I put a hand upon will receive The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}!”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܟܣܦܟ ܥܡܟ ܢܐܙܠ ܠܐܒܕܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܣܒܪܬ ܕܡܘܗܒܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܩܢܝܢ ܥܠܡܐ ܡܬܩܢܝܐ
20 Shimeun Kepha {Simeon, The Rock} said unto him, “Your silver will go to ruin with you, on account that you considered that The Gift of Alaha {God} is obtained with an earthly substance.

ܠܝܬ ܠܟ ܡܢܬܐ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܦܣܐ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܒܟ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܬܪܝܨ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ
21 There is no part for you, not even a small fragment, in this Haymanutha {Faith}, on account that your heart has not been upright before Alaha {God}.

ܒܪܡ ܬܘܒ ܡܢ ܒܝܫܘܬܟ ܗܕܐ ܘܒܥܝ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܫܬܒܩ ܠܟ ܢܟܠܐ ܕܠܒܟ
22 However, repent from this wickedness, and beg from Alaha {God}, so that perhaps He might forgive you for the guile of your heart,

ܒܟܒܕܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܪܝܪܬܐ ܘܒܩܛܪܐ ܕܥܘܠܐ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܝܬܝܟ
23 for, I see that you are in the gall of bitterness {or, in bitter malignity}, and in the bonds of wickedness!”

ܥܢܐ ܣܝܡܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܒܥܘ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܚܠܦܝ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܐܬܐ ܥܠܝ ܡܕܡ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܐܡܪܬܘܢ
24 Simun {Simon} replied and said, “Be you seeking from Alaha {God} for me, so that not a thing from these things which you have said, will come upon me!”

ܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܟܕ ܣܗܕܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܐܠܦܘ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܗܦܟܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܒܩܘܪܝܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܕܫܡܪܝܐ ܣܒܪܘ
25 Then, Shimeun {Simeon} and Yukhanan {John}, after they had Testified and Taught The Miltha d’Alaha {The Word of God}, returned unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and in many villages of the Shamraye {the Samaritans}, they Declared.

ܘܡܠܠ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܥܡ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܡ ܙܠ ܠܬܝܡܢܐ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܡܕܒܪܝܬܐ ܕܢܚܬܐ ܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܠܓܙܐ
26 And The Malaka d’MarYa {The Heavenly Messenger of The Lord-YHWH} spoke with Philipus {Philip}, and said unto him, “Rise! Go unto the South, by the desert road which descends from Urishlem {Jerusalem} unto Gaza.”

ܘܩܡ ܐܙܠ ܘܐܪܥܗ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܚܕ ܕܐܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܟܘܫ ܫܠܝܛܐ ܕܩܢܕܩ ܡܠܟܬܐ ܕܟܘܫܝܐ ܘܗܘ ܫܠܝܛ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܟܠܗ ܓܙܗ ܘܐܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܣܓܘܕ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ
27 And rising, he departed, and he met a certain *trustee who had come from Kush {Cush/Ethiopia}, an official of Qandaq {Candace} the Queen of the Kushaye {the Cushites/the Ethiopians}. And he was authorized over all her treasury, and he had come, so that he might worship in Urishlem {Jerusalem}.

ܘܟܕ ܗܦܟ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܡܪܟܒܬܐ ܘܩܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܐܫܥܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ
28 And while he was returning, so that he should depart, he was sitting on a chariot, and was reading in IshaYa Nabiya {Isaiah, The Prophet}.

ܘܐܡܪܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܐܬܩܪܒ ܘܩܦ ܠܡܪܟܒܬܐ
29 And The Rukha {The Spirit} said unto Philipus {Philip}: “Circle around and come near unto the chariot.”

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܩܪܒ ܫܡܥ ܕܩܪܐ ܒܐܫܥܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܕܐܢ ܡܣܬܟܠ ܐܢܬ ܡܢܐ ܩܪܐ ܐܢܬ
30 And when he had come near, he heard that he was reading in IshaYa Nabiya {Isaiah, The Prophet}, and said unto him, “Do you understand what you are reading?”

ܘܗܘ ܐܡܪ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܣܬܟܠ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܢܪܬܝܢܝ ܘܒܥܐ ܡܢܗ ܡܢ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܕܢܣܩ ܘܢܬܒ ܥܡܗ
31 And he said, “How am I able that I should understand, except if a man should instruct me?” And he sought from him, from Philipus {Philip}, that he should go up and sit with him.

ܦܣܘܩܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܟܬܒܐ ܕܩܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܗܢܐ ܐܝܟ ܐܡܪܐ ܠܢܟܣܬܐ ܐܬܕܒܪ ܘܐܝܟ ܢܩܝܐ ܩܕܡ ܓܙܘܙܐ ܫܬܝܩ ܗܘܐ ܘܗܟܢܐ ܠܐ ܦܬܚ ܦܘܡܗ
32 Now, the passage of The Kathaba {The Scripture} which he was reading in there, was this: “As a lamb to the slaughter, He was led, and as an ewe lamb before her shearer, He was silent, and thus so, didn’t open His mouth.

ܒܡܘܟܟܗ ܡܢ ܚܒܘܫܝܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܝܢܐ ܐܬܕܒܪ ܘܕܪܗ ܡܢܘ ܢܫܬܥܐ ܕܡܫܬܩܠܝܢ ܚܝܘܗܝ ܡܢ ܐܪܥܐ
33 In His humiliation, from imprisonment, and from sentence, He was led, and of His generation, who will tell it? That His life was taken away from the Earth.”

ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܟ ܥܠ ܡܢܘ ܐܡܪܗ ܗܕܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܐܘ ܥܠ ܐܢܫ ܐܚܪܝܢ
34 And that *trustee said unto Philipus {Philip}, “I inquire from you: Concerning whom is the Nabiya {the Prophet} saying this? Concerning himself, or concerning another man?”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܦܬܚ ܦܘܡܗ ܘܫܪܝ ܡܢܗ ܡܢ ܗܢܐ ܟܬܒܐ ܡܣܒܪ ܠܗ ܥܠ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ
35 Then, Philipus {Philip} opened his mouth and began from this same Kathaba {Scripture}, Declaring unto him concerning Maran Eshu {Our Lord Y’shu}.

ܘܟܕ ܗܢܘܢ ܐܙܠܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܡܛܝܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܕܘܟܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܡܝܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܗܘ ܗܐ ܡܝܐ ܡܢܐ ܗܝ ܟܠܝܬܐ ܕܐܥܡܕ
36 And while they were going on the road, they arrived unto one place in which there was water. And that *trustee said, “Look! Water! What is the impediment that I should be Immersed {Baptized}?”

ܘܦܩܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܬܩܘܡ ܡܪܟܒܬܐ ܘܢܚܬܘ ܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܠܡܝܐ ܘܐܥܡܕܗ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܠܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܗܘ
37 {38*} And he commanded that the chariot should stand still, and they both descended unto the water, and Philipus {Philip} Immersed {Baptized} for that *trustee.

ܘܟܕ ܣܠܩܘ ܡܢ ܡܝܐ ܪܘܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܚܛܦܬ ܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܘܬܘܒ ܠܐ ܚܙܝܗܝ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܗܘ ܐܠܐ ܐܙܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܐܘܪܚܗ ܟܕ ܚܕܐ
38 {39} And when they had ascended from the water, The Rukha d’MarYa {The Spirit of The Lord-YHWH} seized Philipus {Philip}, and no more did that *trustee see him, but rather, he had departed on the road, while rejoicing!

ܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܕܝܢ ܐܫܬܟܚ ܒܐܙܘܛܘܣ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܡܬܟܪܟ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܣܒܪ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܩܣܪܝܐ
39 {40} Then, Philipus {Philip} was found in Azatus {Azotus}, and from there, he was led around, and Declared in all the cities, until he came unto Qasariya {Caesarea}.

Note: Acts 8:27 * “trustee” This word in Aramaic means one who is trusted or who is faithful, one who is entrusted with something in an official capacity. It can refer to a eunuch, but, since this man was going to Jerusalem to worship God, it is unlikely that he was a castrated man, since such a one was forbidden by the Law to perform worship acts at the Temple in Jerusalem. It seems more likely that he is simply called here, a “trustee” of the Queen of Cush…and an official minister of her government.

Note: Acts 8:37 vs 37, as it is found in the later Greek copies, and in the Latin Vulgate text, as well as later being brought into the Western Syriac (The Peshitto) version of The Aramaic NT, from the Greek text (see the translation below). It is shown to have been in early 2nd and 3rd century Greek and Latin copies as seen by both Irenaeus and Cyprian’s quotations of the verse. It has never been part of The Eastern Aramaic NT (The Peshitta), which has the reading above and so the chapter has only 39 verses, rather than 40. From the Western Peshitto version it reads thus: “And Philip said, if you believe with all your heart it is permitted. And he responded, I am believing that Eshu Meshikha is the Son of Alaha.”

Chapter 9
ܫܐܘܠ ܕܝܢ ܥܕܟܝܠ ܡܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܚܡܐ ܘܚܡܬܐ ܕܩܛܠܐ ܥܠ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܡܪܢ
1 Yet, Shaul {Saul} was still full of threat and murderous anger against The Disciples of Maran {Our Lord},

ܘܫܐܠ ܠܗ ܐܓܪܬܐ ܡܢ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܢܬܠ ܠܗ ܠܕܪܡܣܘܩ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܢܫܟܚ ܕܪܕܝܢ ܒܗܕܐ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܘ ܢܫܐ ܢܐܣܘܪ ܢܝܬܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
2 and he asked for letters from The Rab Kahne {The Priest’s Chief}, so that they might be given unto him for Darmsuq {Damascus}; for The Kenushatha {The Synagogues}, so that if he might find men, or women, who were proceeding in this Way, he should bind them, to bring them unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}.

ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠ ܗܘܐ ܘܫܪܝ ܡܡܛܐ ܠܕܪܡܣܘܩ ܡܢ ܬܚܝܬ ܫܠܝܐ ܐܙܠܓ ܗܘܐ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ
3 And while he went and began arriving unto Darmsuq {Damascus}; from under the quiet {or suddenly}, Light shone from Heaven upon him,

ܘܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܘܫܡܥ ܩܠܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܫܐܘܠ ܫܐܘܠ ܡܢܐ ܪܕܦ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ ܩܫܐ ܗܘ ܠܟ ܠܡܒܥܛܘ ܠܥܘܩܣܐ
4 and he fell upon the ground, and heard a voice which was speaking unto him, “Shaul {Saul}. Shaul {Saul}. Why do you persecute Me? For, it is hard for you to kick the goads.”

ܥܢܐ ܗܘ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢ ܐܢܬ ܡܪܝ ܘܡܪܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܢܬ ܪܕܦ ܐܢܬ
5 He responded and said, “Who are you Mari {My Lord}?” And Maran {Our Lord} said, “I AM, Eshu Natsraya {Y’shu, The Nazarene}, the One whom you persecute.

ܐܠܐ ܩܘܡ ܥܘܠ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܬܡܢ ܢܬܡܠܠ ܥܡܟ ܥܠ ܡܐ ܕܘܠܐ ܠܟ ܠܡܥܒܕ
6 Now, rise, enter the city, and there it will be spoken with you concerning what is fitting for you to do.”

ܘܓܒܪܐ ܕܐܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܕ ܬܡܝܗܝܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܩܠܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܢܫ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ
7 And the men who were going with him on the road, were standing while amazed, on account that they were only hearing the voice, yet, no man was visible to them.

ܘܩܡ ܫܐܘܠ ܡܢ ܐܪܥܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܡܕܡ ܟܕ ܥܝܢܘܗܝ ܦܬܝܚܢ ܗܘܝ ܘܟܕ ܐܚܝܕܝܢ ܒܐܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܥܠܘܗܝ ܠܕܪܡܣܘܩ
8 And Shaul {Saul} rose from the ground, and there wasn’t a thing visible to him, while his eyes were opened. And after they took him by his hands, they entered unto Darmsuq {Damascus},

ܘܠܐ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܐܟܠ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܬܝ
9 and there was no sight for him, three days, and he didn’t eat, and neither did he drink.

ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܗ ܒܕܪܡܣܘܩ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܘܡܪܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܪܝ
10 Yet, there was in Darmsuq {Damascus} a certain Talmiyda {Disciple} whose name was KhananYa {Ananias}. And MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} said unto him in a vision, “KhananYa {Ananias}!” And he said, “Here am I, Mari {My Lord}!”

ܘܡܪܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܡ ܙܠ ܠܫܘܩܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܬܪܝܨܐ ܘܒܥܝ ܒܒܝܬܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܐ ܠܫܐܘܠ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܡܢ ܛܪܣܘܣ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܟܕ ܗܘ ܡܨܠܐ
11 And Maran {Our Lord} said unto him, “Arise, go unto the street which is called ‘Trisa {Straight}, and inquire at the house of Yehuda {Judah}, for Shaul {Saul} who is from Tarsus, for, look! While he prays,

ܚܙܐ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܕܥܠ ܘܣܡ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܝܕܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܬܦܬܚܢ ܥܝܢܘܗܝ
12 he sees in a vision a man whose name is KhananYa {Ananias}, who entered and placed his hand upon him, accordingly, so that his eyes might be opened.”

ܘܐܡܪ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܡܪܝ ܫܡܥܬ ܡܢ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܥܠ ܓܒܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܟܡܐ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܐܣܒܠ ܠܩܕܝܫܝܟ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ
13 And KhananYa {Ananias} said, “Mari {My Lord}, I have heard from many concerning this man, that he has inflicted much evil unto Qadishek {Your Holy Ones} in Urishlem {Jerusalem}.

ܘܗܐ ܐܦ ܗܪܟܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܡܢ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܢܐܣܘܪ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܩܪܝܢ ܫܡܟ
14 And behold, also here, there is for him authority from the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs}, that all those who are calling on Your Name, should be bound!”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܝܐ ܩܘܡ ܙܠ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܐܢܐ ܗܘ ܠܝ ܓܒܝܐ ܕܢܫܩܘܠ ܫܡܝ ܒܥܡܡܐ ܘܒܡܠܟܐ ܘܒܝܬ ܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ
15 MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} said unto him, “Arise, go, because he is a vessel for Me, chosen, so that he should bear My Name among the Amme {the Peoples}, and among Kings, and the house of The Sons of IysraIyl {Israel}.

ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܚܘܝܘܗܝ ܟܡܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܠܡܚܫ ܡܛܠ ܫܡܝ
16 For, I will show him how much is destined for him to suffer on account of My Name.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܐܙܠ ܠܒܝܬܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܣܡ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܝܕܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܐܘܠ ܐܚܝ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܫܕܪܢܝ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܟ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܐܢܬ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܬܦܬܚܢ ܥܝܢܝܟ ܘܬܬܡܠܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
17 Afterwards, KhananYa {Ananias} went unto the house, unto him, and placed upon him The Hand, and said unto him, “Shaul {Saul}, my brother, Maran Eshu {Our Lord Y’shu} has sent me, that One who appeared unto you on the road when you were coming; thus, in this way, so that your eyes should be opened, and to be filled with The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}.”

ܘܒܪܫܥܬܗ ܢܦܠ ܡܢ ܥܝܢܘܗܝ ܡܕܡ ܕܕܡܐ ܠܩܠܦܐ ܘܐܬܦܬܚ ܥܝܢܘܗܝ ܘܩܡ ܥܡܕ
18 And at once {lit. in the son of an hour} there fell from his eyes a thing which is compared to scales, and his eyes were opened, and having risen, he was Immersed {Baptized}.

ܘܩܒܠ ܣܝܒܪܬܐ ܘܐܬܚܝܠ ܘܗܘܐ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܒܕܪܡܣܘܩ
19 And he received food, and was strengthened. And he was there some days with The Talmiyde {The Disciples}, those who were there in Darmsuq {Damascus}.

ܘܒܪܫܥܬܗ ܡܟܪܙ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܗܘܝܘ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
20 And at once {lit. in the son of an hour} he Proclaimed in The Kenushatha {The Synagogues} of the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} concerning Eshu {Y’shu}; that He is The Son of Alaha {God}.

ܘܬܡܝܗܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܢܘ ܗܘ ܕܪܕܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܩܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܫܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܗܐ ܐܦ ܠܗܪܟܐ ܥܠܝܗ ܥܠ ܗܕܐ ܡܫܕܪ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܐܣܘܪ ܢܘܒܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ
21 And all those who were hearing him were surprised, and they were saying, “Is this not that one who had persecuted all those who were calling unto this name in Urishlem {Jerusalem}? And look! Also unto here, certainly concerning this, he was sent, so as that he should take them bound unto the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs}.”

ܫܐܘܠ ܕܝܢ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܬܚܝܠ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܙܝܥ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܕܪܡܣܘܩ ܟܕ ܡܚܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܗܢܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ
22 But, Shaul {Saul} was further strengthened, and stirred up the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews}; those who were dwelling in Darmsuq, while showing that this One is Meshikha {The Anointed One}.

ܘܟܕ ܣܓܝܘ ܠܗ ܬܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܥܒܕܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܢܟܠܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܢܩܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ
23 And after there were many days for him there, the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} made a plot against him, so that they might kill him.

ܐܬܒܕܩ ܠܗ ܕܝܢ ܠܫܐܘܠ ܐܦܪܣܢܐ ܕܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܠܗ ܘܢܛܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܝܡܡܐ ܘܠܠܝܐ ܕܢܩܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ
24 Yet, the plot which they sought to do unto him was known unto Shaul {Saul}, for, they were guarding the gates of the city, day and night, so that they might kill him.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܣܡܘܗܝ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܒܐܣܦܪܝܕܐ ܘܫܒܘܗܝ ܡܢ ܫܘܪܐ ܒܠܠܝܐ
25 Then, The Disciples placed him in a basket and lowered him from the wall in the night.

ܘܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܬܢܩܦܘ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܚܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗ ܘܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܗܘ
26 And he departed unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and had desired to join with The Talmiyde {The Disciples}, and they all from them were afraid of him, not believing that he was a Talmiyda {a Disciple}.

ܒܪܢܒܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܚܕܗ ܘܐܝܬܝܗ ܠܘܬ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܐܫܬܥܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܚܙܐ ܠܡܪܝܐ ܘܕܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܠܠ ܥܡܗ ܘܐܝܟܢܐ ܒܕܪܡܣܘܩ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܡܠܠ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ
27 But, Bar-Naba {Barnabas} took him and brought him unto The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, and related unto them how on the road he saw MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, and how that He spoke with him, and how in Darmsuq, with boldness {lit. with an open eye}, he spoke in The Name of Eshu {Y’shu}.

ܘܥܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܢܦܩ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ
28 And he was coming in and out together with them at Urishlem {Jerusalem}.

ܘܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܘܕܪܫ ܗܘܐ ܥܡ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܕܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܝܘܢܐܝܬ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܨܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܩܛܠܗ
29 And he spoke in The Name of Eshu {Y’shu} with boldness {lit. with an open eye}, and was debating with the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews}; those who understood Yawnayith {the Greek language}; but, they were desiring to kill him.

ܘܟܕ ܝܕܥܘ ܐܚܐ ܐܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܠܩܣܪܝܐ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܫܕܪܘܗܝ ܠܛܪܣܘܣ
30 And when The Brothers knew it, they brought him by night unto Qasariya {Caesarea}, and from there they sent him unto Tarsus.

ܒܪܡ ܕܝܢ ܥܕܬܐ ܕܒܟܠܗ ܝܗܘܕ ܘܒܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܒܫܡܪܝܢ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܫܠܡܐ ܟܕ ܡܬܒܢܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܘܪܕܝܐ ܒܕܚܠܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܒܘܝܐܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܣܓܝܐ ܗܘܬ
31 But, nevertheless, The Edtha {The Assembly} which was in all Yehud {Judea}, and in Galila {Galilee}, and in Shamreen {Samaria}, in it there was Shlama {Peace}; while being built up, and instructed in The Reverence of Alaha {God}; and it was increasing in the encouragement of The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}.

ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܡܬܟܪܟ ܗܘܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܢܚܬ ܐܦ ܠܘܬ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܠܘܕ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
32 And it was, that while Shimeun {Simeon} was going around in the cities, he descended also unto The Qadishe {The Holy Ones}, who were dwelling in the city Lud {Lydda}.

ܘܐܫܟܚ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܐܢܝܣ ܕܪܡܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܥܪܣܐ ܘܡܫܪܝ ܫܢܝܢ ܬܡܢܐ
33 And he found a certain man who was named Anias {Aeneas}, who had lain in a bed and was paralyzed eight years.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܢܝܐ ܡܐܣܐ ܠܟ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܩܘܡ ܘܫܘܐ ܥܪܣܟ ܘܒܪܫܥܬܗ ܩܡ
34 And Shimeun {Simeon} said unto him, “Aniya {meaning ‘miserable one’}, Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One} heals for you, rise, and put down your bed.” And at once {lit. in the son of an hour}, he stood!

ܘܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܠܘܕ ܘܒܣܪܘܢܐ ܘܐܬܦܢܝܘ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ
35 And all who were dwelling in Lud {Lydda} and in Saruna {Saron} saw it, and returned unto Alaha {God}.

ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܒܝܘܦܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܛܒܝܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܥܬܝܪܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܥܒܕܐ ܛܒܐ ܘܒܙܕܩܬܐ ܕܥܒܕܐ ܗܘܬ
36 But, there was a certain Talmiydatha {female Disciple} in Yupha Madintha {Joppa city}, whose name was Tabitha. This one was wealthy in good deeds and in alms-giving, which she had done.

ܐܬܟܪܗܬ ܕܝܢ ܒܗܘܢ ܒܗܢܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܘܡܝܬܬ ܘܐܣܚܝܘܗ ܘܣܡܘܗ ܒܥܠܝܬܐ
37 But, she became sick in those days, and she died, and was washed, and placed in a room.

ܘܫܡܥܘ ܗܘܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܠܘܕ ܗܘ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܐܝܬܝܗ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܝܘܦܐ ܘܫܕܪܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܓܒܪܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܕܢܒܥܘܢ ܡܢܗ ܕܠܐ ܬܡܐܢ ܠܗ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܨܐܕܝܗܘܢ
38 And The Talmiyde {The Disciples} were hearing that Shimeun {Simeon} was in the city Lud, that one which is near Yupha {Joppa}, and they sent two men unto him, whom they requested from him that he shouldn’t neglect to come with them.

ܘܩܡ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܐܙܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܐܣܩܘܗܝ ܠܥܠܝܬܐ ܘܟܢܫ ܩܡ ܠܗܝܢ ܚܕܪܘܗܝ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܐܪܡܠܬܐ ܟܕ ܒܟܝܢ ܘܡܚܘܝܢ ܠܗ ܟܘܬܝܢܝܬܐ ܘܡܪܛܘܛܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܝܗܒܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܗܝܢ ܛܒܝܬܐ ܟܕ ܚܝܐ
39 And Shimeun {Simeon} arose and went with them. And when he came, they ascended unto the room, and there was gathered, standing around him, all the widows, while weeping and showing unto him the tunics and the cloaks; those which Tabitha had given unto them when she was alive.

ܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܦܩ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܠܒܪ ܘܩܥܕ ܥܠ ܒܘܪܟܘܗܝ ܘܨܠܝ ܘܐܬܦܢܝ ܠܘܬ ܫܠܕܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܛܒܝܬܐ ܩܘܡܝ ܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܦܬܚܬ ܥܝܢܝܗ ܘܟܕ ܚܙܬܗ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܝܬܒܬ
40 Then, Shimeun {Simeon} sent all the men outside, and knelt upon his knees, and prayed. And he turned towards the body and said, “Tabitha, Arise!” Then, she opened her eyes, and when she saw Shimeun {Simeon}, she sat up!

ܘܐܘܫܛ ܠܗ ܐܝܕܗ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ ܘܩܪܐ ܠܩܕܝܫܐ ܘܠܐܪܡܠܬܐ ܘܝܗܒܗ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܚܝܐ
41 And he extended his hand to her, and raised her, and called for The Qadishe {The Holy Ones}, and for the widows, and gave her unto them after she was alive.

ܘܐܬܝܕܥܬ ܗܕܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܣܓܝܐܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܡܪܢ
42 And this was known in all the city, and many believed in Maran {Our Lord}.

ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܗ ܒܝܘܦܐ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܠܐ ܙܥܘܪܝܢ ܟܕܫܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܝܬ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܘܪܣܝܐ
43 But, he was in Yupha {Joppa} not a few days, where he lodged in the house of Shimeun {Simeon} the tanner.

ܒܩܣܪܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܘܣ ܡܢ ܣܦܝܪܐ ܗܝ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܐܝܛܠܝܩܐ
1 Then, in Qasariya {Caesarea} there was a certain man, a Qentruna {a Centurion/a Captain of a hundred}, whose name was Qurnilius {Cornelius}, from the troop which is called the Italiqi {the Italian}.

ܘܙܕܝܩ ܗܘܐ ܘܕܚܠ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܘܒܝܬܗ ܟܠܗ ܘܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ ܙܕܩܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܒܥܡܐ ܘܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ
2 And he was righteous, and revered Alaha {God}; he and all his house. And he had done much alms-giving among the Ama {the People}, and was constantly beseeching Alaha {God}.

ܗܢܐ ܚܙܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܓܠܝܐܝܬ ܠܐܦܝ ܬܫܥ ܫܥܝܢ ܒܐܝܡܡܐ ܕܥܠ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܐ
3 This one saw a Malaka d’MarYa {a Heavenly Messenger of God} in an appearance, openly, to his face, the ninth hour in the daytime {i.e. 3 pm}, who came in unto him, and said unto him, “Qurniliye {Cornelius}.”

ܘܗܘ ܚܪ ܒܗ ܘܕܚܠ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢܐ ܡܪܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܨܠܘܬܟ ܘܙܕܩܬܟ ܣܠܩ ܠܕܘܟܪܢܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ
4 And he looked at him, and was afraid, and said, “What, mari {my lord}?” And The Malaka {The Heavenly Messenger} said unto him, “Your prayers, and your almsgiving, have ascended for a memorial before Alaha {God}.

ܘܗܫܐ ܫܕܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܠܝܘܦܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܝܬܐ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܟܐܦܐ
5 And now, send men unto Yupha {Joppa} city, and bring Shimeun {Simeon}, who is called “Kepha” {The Rock}.

ܗܐ ܫܪܐ ܒܒܝܬܗ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܘܪܣܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܝܡܐ
6 Behold, he dwells at the house of Shimeun {Simeon} the tanner, which is beside the yama {the sea}.”

ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܡܠܠ ܥܡܗ ܩܪܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܡܢ ܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ ܘܦܠܚܐ ܚܕ ܕܕܚܠ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܡܬܕܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ
7 And after The Malaka {The Heavenly Messenger} who had spoken with him departed, he called two from the sons of his house, and a certain servant who revered Alaha {God}, who was obedient unto Him,

ܘܐܫܬܥܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܚܙܐ ܘܫܕܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܝܘܦܐ
8 and he related unto them every thing which he had seen, and sent them unto Yupha {Joppa}.

ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܟܕ ܗܢܘܢ ܪܕܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܩܪܝܒܝܢ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܣܠܩ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܠܐܓܪܐ ܕܢܨܠܐ ܒܫܬ ܫܥܝܢ
9 And another day while they journeyed on the road, and came near unto the city, Shimeun {Simeon} ascended unto the housetop, so that he might pray at the sixth hour {i.e. at Noon}.

ܘܟܦܢ ܘܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܠܥܣ ܘܟܕ ܗܢܘܢ ܡܬܩܢܝܢ ܠܗ ܢܦܠ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܬܡܗܐ
10 And he was hungry, and had desired that he might eat. And while they were preparing it for him, there fell upon him amazement,

ܘܚܙܐ ܫܡܝܐ ܟܕ ܦܬܝܚܝܢ ܘܡܐܢܐ ܚܕ ܟܕ ܐܣܝܪ ܒܐܪܒܥ ܩܪܢܢ ܘܕܡܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܬܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܘܫܐܒ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ
11 and he saw the Heavens while opened, and a certain garment, where it was bound at the four corners, and it was likened unto a great linen sheet, and was descending from the Heavens upon the Earth.

ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܚܝܘܬܐ ܕܐܪܒܥܬ ܕܓܠܝܗ ܘܪܚܫܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܘܦܪܚܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
12 And there was in it all animals of four feet, and the creeping thing of the Earth, and the foul of the Heavens.

ܘܩܠܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܗ ܕܐܡܪ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܩܘܡ ܟܘܣ ܘܐܟܘܠ
13 And a voice came unto him, which said, “Shimeun {Simeon}, arise, slaughter and eat!”

ܘܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܚܣ ܡܪܝ ܕܡܡܬܘܡ ܠܐ ܐܟܠܬ ܟܠ ܕܡܣܝܒ ܘܛܡܐ
14 And Shimeun {Simeon} said, “Let it not be, Mari {My Lord}! Because always I have not eaten any thing which is defiled and unclean!”

ܘܬܘܒ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܩܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܟܝ ܐܢܬ ܠܐ ܬܣܝܒ
15 And again, the second time, the voice was saying unto him; “That which Alaha {God} has cleansed, you shall not declare unclean!”

ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܗܘܬ ܬܠܬ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܘܐܬܥܠܝ ܠܗ ܡܐܢܐ ܠܫܡܝܐ
16 Now, this happened three times, and the garment was raised unto the Heavens.

ܘܟܕ ܡܬܕܡܪ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܢܦܫܗ ܕܡܢܘ ܚܙܘܐ ܕܚܙܐ ܡܛܝܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܫܬܕܪܘ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܘܣ ܘܫܐܠܘ ܥܠ ܒܝܬܐ ܕܫܪܐ ܒܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܐܬܘ ܘܩܡܘ ܥܠ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܕܪܬܐ
17 And while Shimeun {Simeon} wondered in himself of what the vision was which he had seen, there arrived those men who had been sent from Qurnilius {Cornelius}, and they inquired about that house in which Shimeun {Simeon} dwelt. And they came and stood at the gate of the courtyard.

ܘܩܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܘܡܫܐܠܝܢ ܕܐܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܟܐܦܐ ܗܪܟܐ ܫܪܐ
18 And they were calling there and were asking if Shimeun {Simeon} who was called “Kepha” {The Rock} lodged there.

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܪܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܗܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܬܠܬܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܠܟ
19 And while Shimeun {Simeon} thought with regard to the vision, The Rukha {The Spirit} said unto him, “Behold, three men seek for you.

ܩܘܡ ܚܘܬ ܘܙܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܠܐ ܡܬܦܠܓ ܪܥܝܢܟ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܢܐ ܗܘ ܫܕܪܬ ܐܢܘܢ
20 Arise, go down and go with them, while not doubtful of mind, on account that I am He who has sent them.”

ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܚܬ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܓܒܪܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܐ ܗܘ ܕܒܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܝܕܐ ܗܝ ܥܠܬܐ ܕܡܛܠܬܗ ܐܬܝܬܘܢ
21 Then, Shimeun {Simeon} went down unto those men, and he said unto them, “I am he whom you seek. What is the cause which on account you have come?”

ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܘܣ ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܟܐܢܐ ܕܕܚܠ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܡܣܗܕ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܬܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܡܢ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܢܫܕܪ ܢܥܠܟ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܘܢܫܡܥ ܡܠܬܐ ܡܢܟ
22 They said unto him, “A certain man, of the name Qurnilius {Cornelius}, a Centurion {a Captain of a hundred}; upright; who reveres Alaha {God}, and concerning whom all the Ama d’Yehudaye {the People of the Judeans/the Jews} testify, was spoken unto in a vision from a Malaka Qadisha {a Holy Heavenly Messenger}, that he should send to bring you unto his house, and should hear The Miltha {The Word} from you.”

ܘܐܥܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܩܒܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܪ ܕܫܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܩܡ ܠܒܬܪܗ ܕܝܘܡܐ ܘܢܦܩ ܐܙܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܥܡܗ ܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܡܢ ܐܚܐ ܕܝܘܦܐ
23 And Shimeun {Simeon} brought them in, and received them where he dwelt. And he arose the next day and went forth, going with them. And there went with him certain men from The Brothers of Yupha {Joppa}.

ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܥܠܘ ܠܩܣܪܝܐ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܘܣ ܕܝܢ ܡܩܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܡܟܢܫܝܢ ܠܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܛܘܗܡܗ ܘܐܦ ܪܚܡܐ ܚܒܝܒܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
24 And another day they entered unto Qasariya {Caesarea}. Then, Qurnilius {Cornelius} was waiting for them while there was gathered unto him all the sons of his family, and also dearly loved friends whom he had.

ܘܟܕ ܥܐܠ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܪܥܗ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܘܣ ܘܢܦܠ ܣܓܕ ܠܪܓܠܘܗܝ
25 And when Shimeun {Simeon} entered, Qurnilius {Cornelius} met him, and fell to worship at his feet.

ܘܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܩܝܡܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܡ ܠܟ ܘܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܐܢܐ
26 And Shimeun {Simeon} raised him up, and said unto him, “Arise! for, I am also a son of man!”

ܘܟܕ ܡܡܠܠ ܥܡܗ ܥܠ ܘܐܫܟܚ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܕܐܬܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܬܡܢ
27 And while he was speaking with him, he entered and found many who had come there.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܦܣ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܢܩܦ ܠܐܢܫܐ ܢܘܟܪܝܐ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܪ ܫܪܒܬܗ ܘܠܝ ܐܠܗܐ ܚܘܝܢܝ ܕܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܥܠ ܐܢܫ ܕܛܡܐ ܐܘ ܡܣܝܒ
28 And he said unto him, “You certainly know that it is not permitted for a Yehudaya {a Judean/a Jewish man} that he should associate with a foreign man who is not a son of his lineage. But, unto me Alaha {God} has shown that I shouldn’t say about a man that he is unclean or defiled.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܥܬܝܕܐܝܬ ܐܬܝܬ ܟܕ ܫܕܪܬܘܢ ܒܬܪܝ ܒܪܡ ܡܫܐܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܡܢܐ ܫܕܪܬܘܢ ܒܬܪܝ
29 Because of this, I readily came when you sent after me. However, I ask you, on what account did you send after me?”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܘܣ ܐܪܒܥܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܐܝܬ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܫܐ ܗܐ ܡܢ ܕܨܐܡ ܐܢܐ ܘܒܬܫܥ ܫܥܝܢ ܟܕ ܡܨܠܐ ܐܢܐ ܒܒܝܬܝ ܩܡ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܩܕܡܝ ܟܕ ܠܒܝܫ ܚܘܪܐ
30 Qurnilius {Cornelius} said unto him, “Four days it was until now; Behold, I am fasting, and at the ninth hour {i.e. 3 pm}, while I am praying in my house, there stood a certain man before me, while clothed in white!

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܐ ܐܫܬܡܥܬ ܨܠܘܬܟ ܘܠܙܕܩܬܟ ܕܘܟܪܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ
31 And he said unto me, ‘Qurniliye {Cornelius}, your prayers have been heard, and for your alms givings there has been a remembrance before Alaha {God}.

ܒܪܡ ܫܕܪ ܠܝܘܦܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܝܬܐ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܟܐܦܐ ܗܐ ܫܪܐ ܒܒܝܬܗ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܘܪܣܝܐ ܕܥܠ ܝܕ ܝܡܐ ܘܗܘ ܢܐܬܐ ܢܡܠܠ ܥܡܟ
32 Nevertheless, send unto Yupha {Joppa} city, and bring Shimeun {Simeon} who is called “Kepha” {The Rock}. Behold, he dwells in the house of Shimeun {Simeon} the Tanner, which is beside the sea; he will come and speak with you.’

ܘܒܪܫܥܬܗ ܫܕܪܬ ܠܘܬܟ ܘܐܢܬ ܫܦܝܪ ܥܒܕܬ ܕܐܬܝܬ ܘܗܐ ܚܢܢ ܟܠܢ ܩܕܡܝܟ ܘܨܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܢܫܡܥ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܐܬܦܩܕ ܠܟ ܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ
33 And at once I sent for you, and you have done well to have come! And behold, we are all before you, and we desire to hear all which has been commanded unto you from Alaha {God}.”

ܦܬܚ ܕܝܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܦܘܡܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܒܫܪܪܐ ܐܕܪܟܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܢܣܒ ܒܐܦܐ
34 Then, Shimeun {Simeon} opened his mouth, and said, “In truth, I comprehend that Alaha {God} is not a receiver of faces {An idiom meaning one who doesn’t favor persons},

ܐܠܐ ܒܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܕܚܠ ܡܢܗ ܘܦܠܚ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܡܩܒܠ ܗܘ ܠܘܬܗ
35 but rather, all the Amme {the Peoples/Gentiles}, which from them, who revere Him and work righteousness, is accepted with Him.

ܡܠܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܫܕܪ ܠܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܘܣܒܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܫܠܡܐ ܘܫܝܢܐ ܒܝܕ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܢܘ ܡܪܝܐ ܕܟܠ
36 For, this is The Miltha {The Word} which was sent unto The Sons of IysraIyl {Israel}, and declaring unto them Shlama {Peace} and tranquility, by means of Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}; this is The One who is MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} of all!

ܘܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܕܗܘܬ ܒܟܠܗ ܝܗܘܕ ܕܐܩܦܬ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܒܬܪ ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܐܟܪܙ ܝܘܚܢܢ
37 And also you, you know by The Miltha {The Word} which has been in all Yehud {Judea}, which began from Galila {Galilee}, after the Immersion {Baptism} which Yukhanan {John} Proclaimed,

ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܡܢ ܢܨܪܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܫܚܗ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܒܚܝܠܐ ܘܗܘܝܘ ܕܡܬܟܪܟ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܐܣܐ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܬܢܟܝܘ ܡܢ ܒܝܫܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗ
38 concerning Eshu {Y’shu} who was from Natsrath {Nazareth}, whom Alaha {God} anointed with The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, and with Power, and who went around and healed those who were damaged from evil, on account that Alaha {God} was with Him.

ܘܚܢܢ ܣܗܕܘܗܝ ܥܠ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܒܟܠܗ ܐܪܥܐ ܕܝܗܘܕ ܘܕܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܠܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܬܠܐܘܗܝ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܥܠ ܩܝܣܐ ܘܩܛܠܘܗܝ
39 And we are witnesses concerning all which He did in all the land of Yehud {Judea} and Urishlem {Jerusalem}. For, concerning this, the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} hung Him up upon The Tree, and killed Him.

ܘܠܗ ܐܩܝܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܘܝܗܒܗ ܕܢܬܚܙܐ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ
40 And Alaha {God} raised Him in three days, and allowed that He should be seen openly {lit. with an open eye}.

ܠܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܓܒܝܢ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܣܗܕܐ ܕܐܟܠܢ ܥܡܗ ܘܐܫܬܝܢ ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܩܝܡܬܗ ܕܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ
41 Yet, not unto all the Ama {the People}, but rather, unto us; those from whom Alaha {God} chose, so that we should be witnesses for Him; who ate and drank with Him after His resurrection from the place of the dead.

ܘܦܩܕܢ ܕܢܟܪܙ ܘܢܣܗܕ ܠܥܡܐ ܕܗܢܘ ܕܐܬܦܪܫ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܢܐ ܕܚܝܐ ܘܕܡܝܬܐ
42 And He Commanded that we should Proclaim and Testify unto the Ama {the People}, that this is the One who was appointed from Alaha {God} to be The Judge of the living and of the dead.

ܘܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܣܗܕܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܒܫܡܗ ܢܩܒܠ ܫܘܒܩܢ ܚܛܗܐ
43 And concerning Him, all the Nabiye {the Prophets} Testify, that all who are believing {i.e. trusting} in His Name, will receive forgiveness of sins.”

ܘܟܕ ܗܘ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܐܓܢܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܥܠ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܠܬܐ
44 And while he, Shimeun {Simeon}, was speaking these words, The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness} rested upon all who were hearing The Miltha {The Word}!

ܘܬܡܗܘ ܘܬܗܪܘ ܐܚܐ ܓܙܝܪܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܬܘ ܥܡܗ ܕܐܦ ܥܠ ܥܡܡܐ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܐܫܬܦܥܬ
45 And The Circumcised Brothers, those who had come with him, were amazed, and wondered that also upon the Gentiles, The Gift of The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness} had been poured out,

ܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܟܕ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܒܠܫܢ ܠܫܢ ܘܡܘܪܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ
46 for, indeed, they were hearing them while speaking in certain languages, and magnifying Alaha {God}. And Shimeun {Simeon} said,

ܕܠܡܐ ܡܝܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܫ ܟܠܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܥܡܕܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܗܐ ܩܒܠܘ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܚܢܢ
47 “Perhaps a man is able to prohibit water, so that these should not be Immersed {Baptized}, who, look! Have received The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, like we have?”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܦܩܕ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܥܡܕܘܢ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܒܥܘ ܡܢܗ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܩܘܐ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ
48 Then, he appointed for them that they should be Immersed {Baptized} in The Name of Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}, and together they sought from him that he should abide with them some days.

Chapter 11
ܘܐܫܬܡܥܬ ܗܘܬ ܠܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܠܐܚܐ ܕܒܝܗܘܕ ܕܐܦ ܥܡܡܐ ܩܒܠܘ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
1 And The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones} and The Brothers who were in Yehud {Judea}, heard that the Gentiles also received The Miltha d’Alaha {The Word of God}.

ܘܟܕ ܣܠܩ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܕܝܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܓܙܘܪܬܐ
2 And when Shimeun {Simeon} went up unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}, those who were from The Circumcised, were contending with him,

ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܠܘܬ ܐܢܫܐ ܥܘܪܠܐ ܥܠ ܘܠܥܣ ܥܡܗܘܢ
3 while saying that with uncircumcised men he had entered and had eaten with them.

ܘܐܩܦ ܗܘܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܬܪ ܒܬܪ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
4 And Shimeun {Simeon} was adducing, one thing after another, saying unto them,

ܕܟܕ ܡܨܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܒܝܘܦܐ ܚܙܝܬ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܕܢܚܬ ܗܘܐ ܡܐܢܐ ܚܕ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܕܡܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܬܢܐ ܘܐܣܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܒܐܪܒܥ ܩܪܢܬܗ ܘܫܐܒ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܘܬܝ
5 “While I was praying in Yupha {Joppa}, I saw in a vision that there was descending a certain garment, which was like a linen sheet, and was bound at the four corners. And it came down from the Heavens, and came as far as unto me.

ܘܚܪܬ ܒܗ ܘܚܙܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܚܝܘܬܐ ܕܐܪܒܥܬ ܪܓܠܝܗܝܢ ܘܪܚܫܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܘܐܦ ܦܪܚܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
6 And I looked at it, and I saw that there were animals of four feet in it, and creeping things of the Earth, and also foul of the Heavens.

ܘܫܡܥܬ ܗܘܝܬ ܩܠܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܝ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܩܘܡ ܟܘܣ ܘܐܟܘܠ
7 And I heard a voice which said unto me, ‘Shimeun {Simeon}; arise, kill, and eat!’

ܘܐܡܪܬ ܚܣ ܡܪܝ ܕܡܡܬܘܡ ܠܐ ܥܠ ܠܦܘܡܝ ܕܛܡܐ ܘܕܡܣܝܒ
8 And I said, ‘Let it not be, Mari {My Lord}! Not ever has there entered my mouth that which is unclean, and that which is defiled!’

ܘܬܘܒ ܩܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܟܝ ܐܢܬ ܠܐ ܬܣܝܒ
9 And again the voice said unto me from the Heavens, ‘The thing which Alaha {God} has cleansed, you shall not declare defiled!’

ܗܕܐ ܗܘܬ ܬܠܬ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܘܐܣܬܠܩ ܠܗ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܠܫܡܝܐ
10 This happened three times, and every thing ascended unto the Heavens.

ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܬܠܬܐ ܓܒܪܝܢ ܕܐܫܬܕܪܘ ܠܘܬܝ ܡܢ ܩܘܪܢܠܝܘܣ ܡܢ ܩܣܪܝܐ ܐܬܘ ܘܩܡܘ ܥܠ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܕܪܬܐ ܕܫܪܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܒܗ
11 And at that moment, three men who were sent unto me from Qurnilius {Cornelius} from Qasariya {Caesarea}, came, and stood next to the gate of the courtyard in which I was lodging.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܙܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܦܘܠܓܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܥܡܝ ܘܐܦ ܗܠܝܢ ܫܬܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܘܥܠܢ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܕܓܒܪܐ
12 And The Rukha {The Spirit} said unto me, that I should go with them, without hesitation. And also there went with me, these six brothers, and we entered unto the house of the man.

ܘܐܫܬܥܝ ܠܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܚܙܐ ܒܒܝܬܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܩܡ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܕܫܕܪ ܠܝܘܦܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܝܬܐ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܟܐܦܐ
13 And he related unto us how he had seen in his house, a Malaka {a Heavenly Messenger}, who stood and said unto him, ‘Send unto Yupha city and bring Shimeun {Simeon} who is called “Kepha” {The Rock},

ܘܗܘ ܢܡܠܠ ܥܡܟ ܡܠܐ ܕܒܗܝܢ ܬܚܐ ܐܢܬ ܘܟܠܗ ܒܝܬܟ
14 and he will speak with you words, by which you will Live, you and all your house.’

ܘܟܕ ܐܩܦܬ ܗܘܝܬ ܬܡܢ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ ܐܓܢܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܥܠܝܢ ܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ
15 And when I was beginning there to speak, The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness} rested upon them, like He had upon us, previously!

ܘܐܬܕܟܪܬ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܥܡܕ ܒܡܝܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܬܥܡܕܘܢ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
16 And I remembered The Word of Maran {Our Lord}, who had said: “Yukhanan {John} Immersed {Baptized} in water, but, you will be Immersed {Baptized} in The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}!”

ܐܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܠܗܐ ܫܘܝܐܝܬ ܝܗܒܗ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܦ ܠܢ ܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܗܘܝܬ ܕܐܣܦܩ ܗܘܝܬ ܕܐܟܠܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ
17 If, therefore, Alaha {God} equally gave The Gift unto the Gentiles who believed in Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}, as also unto us, who am I that I might be able to hinder Alaha {God}?”

ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܫܡܥܘ ܫܠܝܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܫܒܚܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܟܒܪ ܐܦ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܝܗܒ ܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܠܚܝܐ
18 And when they heard these words, they were quiet, and they gave praise unto Alaha {God}, and they were saying, “Perhaps Alaha {God} has also granted unto the Gentiles repentance, unto Life!”

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܬܒܕܪܘ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܐܣܛܦܢܘܣ ܡܛܝܘ ܗܘܘ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܦܘܢܝܩܐ ܘܐܦ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܕܩܘܦܪܘܣ ܘܠܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ ܟܕ ܥܡ ܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܠܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܥܡ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ
19 Now, those who were scattered from the persecution which had happened concerning Estephnus {Stephen}, had reached as far as Phuniqi {Phoenicia}, and even unto the country of Quprus {Cyprus}, and unto Antiakia {Antioch}, where they were speaking The Miltha {The Word} with no man, except only with the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews}.

ܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܩܘܦܪܘܣ ܘܡܢ ܩܘܪܝܢܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܥܠܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ ܘܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡ ܝܘܢܝܐ ܘܡܣܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ
20 But, there were men among them from Quprus {Cyprus} and from Qurini {Cyrene}; these were brought unto Antiuki {Antioch}, and they were speaking with the Yawnaye {the Greeks}, and were Declaring concerning Maran Eshu {Our Lord Y’shu}.

ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܣܓܝܐܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܘܐܬܦܢܝܘ ܠܘܬ ܡܪܝܐ
21 And The Hand {i.e. The Power} of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} was there with them, and many believed and turned unto MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}.

ܘܐܫܬܡܥܬ ܗܘܬ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܠܐܕܢܝܗܘܢ ܕܒܢܝ ܥܕܬܐ ܕܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܫܕܪܘ ܠܒܪܢܒܐ ܠܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ
22 And this had come to be heard unto the ears of The Sons of The Edtha {The Assembly} who are in Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and they sent Bar-Naba {Barnabas} unto Antiuki {Antioch},

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܠܬܡܢ ܘܚܙܐ ܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܚܕܝ ܘܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܒܟܠܗ ܠܒܗܘܢ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܢܩܝܦܝܢ ܠܡܪܢ
23 and when he came there and saw The Taybutheh d’Alaha {The Grace of God}, he was glad, and had sought from them that with all their heart, they should be joined unto Maran {Our Lord},

ܡܛܠ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܛܒܐ ܘܡܫܡܠܝ ܗܘܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܐܬܬܘܣܦ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܠܡܪܢ
24 on account that he was a good man, and was filled with The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, and with Haymanutha {Faith}. And many Ama {People} were added unto Maran {Our Lord}!

ܘܗܘ ܢܦܩ ܗܘܐ ܠܛܪܣܘܣ ܠܡܒܥܐ ܠܫܐܘܠ
25 And he left there for Tarsus, to seek for Shaul {Saul},

ܘܟܕ ܐܫܟܚܗ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܥܡܗ ܠܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ ܘܫܢܬܐ ܟܠܗ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܥܕܬܐ ܘܐܠܦܘ ܥܡܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܕܡܝܬ ܐܬܩܪܝܘ ܒܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܟܪܣܛܝܢܐ
26 and when he had found him, he brought him with him unto Antiakia {Antioch}. And a whole year they were gathering together with The Edtha {The Assembly}, and they taught many People. From thence, in Antiakia {Antioch}, The Talmiyde {The Disciples} were first called Kristyane {Christians}.

ܘܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܐܬܘ ܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܠܬܡܢ ܢܒܝܐ
27 And in those days Nabiye {Prophets} came there from Urishlem {Jerusalem}.

ܘܩܡ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܓܒܘܣ ܘܐܘܕܥ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܪܘܚ ܕܟܦܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܐܪܥܐ ܘܗܘܐ ܟܦܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܝܘܡܝ ܩܠܘܕܝܘܣ ܩܣܪ
28 And one stood up from them whose name was Agabas, and made known unto them by The Rukh {The Spirit}, that a great famine was to be in all the land, and this famine happened in the days of Qludius Qasar {Claudius Caesar}.

ܒܪܡ ܕܝܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܦܪܫܘ ܕܢܫܕܪܘܢ ܠܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܐܚܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܝܗܘܕ
29 But, nevertheless, The Talmiyde {The Disciples}; according to what there was unto each nash {man} from them, determined that they should send for the relief of The Brothers who dwelt in Yehud {Judea},

ܘܫܕܪܘ ܒܝܕ ܒܪܢܒܐ ܘܫܐܘܠ ܠܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܬܡܢ
30 and they sent it by means of Bar-Naba {Barnabas} and Shaul {Saul}, unto The Qashishe {The Elders} who were there.

Chapter 12
ܒܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܙܒܢܐ ܐܪܡܝ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܕܝܐ ܥܠ ܐܢܫܝܢ ܕܒܥܕܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܒܐܫ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܪܘܕܣ ܡܠܟܐ ܗܘ ܕܡܬܟܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܓܪܦܘܣ
1 Then, at that time, Herudes {Herod} the King, who is named Agripus {Agrippa}; had placed his hands upon men who were in The Edtha {The Assembly}, so as that he might do harm to them.

ܘܩܛܠ ܒܣܝܦܐ ܠܝܥܩܘܒ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ
2 And with the sword he killed Yaqub {Jacob/James}, the brother of Yukhanan {John}.

ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܫܦܪܬ ܗܕܐ ܠܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܘܣܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܐܚܕ ܐܦ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܦܛܝܪܐ
3 And when he saw that this had been pleasing unto the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews}, he had added to also seize Shimeun Kepha {Simeon, The Rock}. And it was The Days of Phatiyre {i.e. The Feast of The Unleavened Breads/Passover}.

ܘܐܚܕܗ ܘܐܪܡܝܗ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܘܐܫܠܡ ܠܗ ܫܬܬܥܣܪ ܐܣܛܪܛܝܘܛܝܢ ܕܢܛܪܘܢܗ ܕܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܦܨܚܐ ܢܫܠܡܝܘܗܝ ܠܥܡܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ
4 And he took him and threw him in the prisoner’s house, and delivered him over to sixteen Soldiers, so that they should be guarding him, so that from after The Peskha {The Passover} he might deliver him unto the Ama d’Yehudaye {the People of the Judeans/the Jews}.

ܘܟܕ ܗܘ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܡܬܢܛܪ ܗܘܐ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܨܠܘܬܐ ܐܡܝܢܬܐ ܡܬܩܪܒܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܢ ܥܕܬܐ ܚܠܦܘܗܝ ܠܐܠܗܐ
5 And while he, Shimeun {Simeon}, was kept in the prisoner’s house, constant prayer was being offered from The Edtha {The Assembly} for him unto Alaha {God}.

ܘܒܗ ܒܗܘ ܠܠܝܐ ܕܠܨܦܪܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܫܠܡܝܘܗܝ ܟܕ ܕܡܟ ܗܘܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܝܬ ܬܪܝܢ ܐܣܛܪܛܝܘܛܝܢ ܘܐܣܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܒܬܪܬܝܢ ܫܫܠܢ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܛܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ
6 And in that night, of the morning which it was prepared that he should be handed over, while Shimeun {Simeon} was sleeping between two Soldiers, and was bound with two chains, and the others were guarding the gates of the prisoner’s house,

ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܩܡ ܠܥܠ ܡܢܗ ܘܢܘܗܪܐ ܐܙܠܓ ܒܟܠܗ ܒܝܬܐ ܘܕܩܪܗ ܒܓܒܗ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܡ ܥܓܠ ܘܢܦܠ ܫܫܠܬܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܕܘܗܝ
7 The Malaka d’MarYa {The Heavenly Messenger of The Lord-YHWH} stood over him, and from him a light shone in all the place, and he poked his side and raised him up. And he said unto him, “Arise, quickly!” And the chains were falling from his hands.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܐܣܘܪ ܚܨܝܟ ܘܣܐܢ ܛܠܪܝܟ ܘܥܒܕ ܗܟܢܐ ܘܬܘܒ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܬܥܛܦ ܬܟܣܝܬܟ ܘܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ
8 And The Malaka {The Heavenly Messenger} said unto him, “Gird your loins, and shod your sandals!” And he did thus. And furthermore, he said unto him, “Wrap your garment, and come after me!”

ܘܢܦܩ ܘܐܙܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܬܪܗ ܟܕ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܕܫܪܝܪܐ ܗܘܬ ܗܝ ܕܗܘܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܝܕ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܣܒܪ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܚܙܘܐ ܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ
9 And he went out, and departed behind him, while not knowing that what was by means of The Malaka {The Heavenly Messenger} was true, for, he was thinking that it was a vision he was seeing.

ܘܟܕ ܥܒܪܘ ܡܛܪܬܐ ܩܕܡܝܬܐ ܘܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܐܬܘ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܬܪܥܐ ܕܦܪܙܠܐ ܘܐܬܦܬܚ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܨܒܘܬ ܢܦܫܗ ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩܘ ܘܥܒܪܘ ܫܘܩܐ ܚܕ ܦܪܩ ܡܢ ܠܘܬܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ
10 And when they passed the first guard, and the second, they came unto the gate of iron, and it opened for them from its own will. And when they came out and they had passed one street, The Malaka {The Heavenly Messenger} departed from him.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܫܬܘܕܥ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܫܐ ܝܕܥܬ ܒܩܘܫܬܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܫܕܪ ܡܠܐܟܗ ܘܦܠܛܢܝ ܡܢ ܐܝܕܗ ܕܗܪܘܕܣ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܡܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܡܬܚܫܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܝ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ
11 Then, Shimeun {Simeon} understood, and said, “Now I know in truth that MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} has sent Malakeh {His Heavenly Messenger} and rescued me from the hand of Herudes {Herod i.e. Agrippa I} the King, and from the thing which the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} were plotting against me!”

ܘܟܕ ܐܣܬܟܠ ܐܬܐ ܠܗ ܠܒܝܬܐ ܕܡܪܝܡ ܐܡܗ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܟܢܝ ܡܪܩܘܣ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܚܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܬܡܢ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܨܠܝܢ
12 And after he understood, he came unto the house of Maryam {Mary}, the mother of Yukhanan {John}, who is surnamed Marqus {Mark}, on account that many of The Brothers were gathered there, and were praying.

ܘܢܩܫ ܒܬܪܥܐ ܕܕܪܬܐ ܘܢܦܩܬ ܕܬܥܢܝܘܗܝ ܛܠܝܬܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܪܘܕܐ
13 And he knocked at the gate of the courtyard, and there went out a young girl to answer him, whose name was Rudi {Rhoda}.

ܘܐܫܬܘܕܥܬ ܩܠܗ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܒܚܕܘܬܗ ܠܐ ܦܬܚܬ ܠܗ ܬܪܥܐ ܐܠܐ ܗܦܟܬ ܒܪܗܛܐ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܗܐ ܩܐܡ ܥܠ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܕܪܬܐ
14 And she recognized the voice of Shimeun {Simeon}, and in her joy she didn’t open the gate for him, but rather, turned around in a run, and said unto them, “Look! Shimeun {Simeon} is standing next to the gate of the courtyard!”

ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܙܥ ܙܥܬܝ ܠܟܝ ܘܗܝ ܡܬܚܪܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܕܗܕܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܗܝ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܟܒܪ ܡܠܐܟܗ ܗܘ
15 They said unto her, “You are certainly confused!” And she affirmed to them that this was so. They said unto her, “Perhaps it is Malakeh {his Heavenly Messenger}?”

ܘܫܡܥܘܢ ܢܩܫ ܗܘܐ ܒܬܪܥܐ ܘܢܦܩܘ ܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܘܬܡܗܘ ܠܗܘܢ
16 And Shimeun {Simeon} knocked at the gate, and they went out and were astonished to see him!

ܘܡܢܝܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܗ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܫܬܩܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܥܠ ܘܐܫܬܥܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܦܩܗ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܫܬܥܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܠܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܠܐܚܝܢ ܘܢܦܩ ܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܠܐܬܪ ܐܚܪܝܢ
17 And he waved unto them with his hand, as to be silent, and entered, and related unto them how MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} had brought him forth from the prisoner’s house, and he said unto them to relate these things unto Yaqub {Jacob/James}, and unto The Brothers. And he departed, going unto another place.

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܨܦܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܪܘܒܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܛܪܛܝܘܛܐ ܥܠ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܡܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ
18 And when it was morning, there was much uproar between the Soldiers, about Shimeun {Simeon}; what had happened to him.

ܗܪܘܕܣ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܒܥܝܗܝ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܗ ܕܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܢܛܘܪܐ ܘܦܩܕ ܕܢܡܘܬܘܢ ܘܢܦܩ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕ ܘܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܒܩܣܪܝܐ
19 Then, when Herudes {Herod} sought for him, and not able to find him, he judged those Guards and commanded that they should be killed. And he went out from Yehud {Judea} and was in Qasariya {Caesarea}.

ܘܡܛܠ ܕܪܓܝܙ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܨܘܪܝܐ ܘܥܠ ܨܝܕܢܝܐ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܘܐܦܝܣ ܠܒܠܣܛܘܣ ܩܝܛܘܢܩܢܗ ܕܡܠܟܐ ܘܫܐܠܘ ܡܢܗ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܝܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܦܘܪܢܣܐ ܕܐܬܪܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܗܘܐ ܕܗܪܘܕܣ
20 And on account that he was angry concerning the Tsuraye {the Tyrians} and concerning the Tsadanaye {the Sidonians}, they assembled and came unto him together, and they persuaded Blastus, the Chamberlain of the King, and they asked from him that there be for them tranquility, on account that the provision of the region was from the Kingdom of Herudes {Herod}.

ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܝܥܐ ܠܒܫ ܗܘܐ ܗܪܘܕܣ ܠܒܘܫܐ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܘܝܬܒ ܥܠ ܒܝܡ ܘܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡ ܟܢܫܐ
21 Then, during a well-known day, Herudes {Herod} was clothed with the clothes of royalty, and he sat upon The Judgment Seat, and spoke with the gathering.

ܥܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗ ܩܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܒܢܬ ܩܠܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܢܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܝ ܕܒܢܝܢܫܐ
22 Then, all the Ama {the People} cried aloud, and were saying, “These are the utterances of the voice {An idiom meaning the daughters of the voice} of Alaha {God}, and they are not of a son of man!”

ܘܚܠܦ ܕܠܐ ܝܗܒ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܡܚܝܗܝ ܡܠܐܟܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܪܦܬ ܒܬܘܠܥܐ ܘܡܝܬ
23 And in return for not giving the praise unto Alaha {God}, at that moment The Malakeh d’MarYa {The Heavenly Messenger of The Lord-YHWH} struck him, and he rotted with worms, and died.

ܘܣܒܪܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܬܟܪܙܐ ܗܘܬ ܘܪܒܝܐ
24 And The Sabartha d’Alaha {The Hopeful Message of God} was Proclaimed, and increased!

ܒܪܢܒܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܫܐܘܠ ܦܢܘ ܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܠܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܕܫܠܡܘ ܬܫܡܫܬܗܘܢ ܘܕܒܪܘ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܟܢܝ ܡܪܩܘܣ
25 Then, Bar-Naba {Barnabas} and Shaul {Saul} returned from Urishlem {Jerusalem} unto Antiaki {Antioch}, after they handed over their relief, and they took with them Yukhanan {John}, the one who was surnamed Marqus {Mark}.

Chapter 13
ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܥܕܬܐ ܕܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܘܡܠܦܢܐ ܒܪܢܒܐ ܘܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܢܝܓܪ ܘܠܘܩܝܘܣ ܕܡܢ ܩܘܪܝܢܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܡܢܐܝܠ ܒܪ ܡܪܒܝܢܘܗܝ ܕܗܪܘܕܣ ܛܛܪܪܟܐ ܘܫܐܘܠ
1 Yet, there were in The Edtha {The Assembly} of Antiakia {Antioch}, Prophets and Teachers; Bar-Naba {Barnabas}, and Shimeun {Simeon} who is called Niger, and Luqius {Lucius} who was from Qurini {Cyrene} city, and ManaIyl {Manaen}, son of the foster-brother of Herudes {Herod} the Tetrarka {the Tetrarch}, and Shaul {Saul}.

ܘܟܕ ܗܢܘܢ ܨܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܬܟܫܦܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܐܡܪܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܦܪܘܫܘ ܠܝ ܠܫܐܘܠ ܘܠܒܪܢܒܐ ܠܥܒܕܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܩܪܝܬ ܐܢܘܢ
2 And while they were fasting, and supplicating unto Alaha {God}, The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness} said unto them, “Separate unto Me Shaul {Saul} and Bar-Naba {Barnabas} for the work which I have called them.”

ܘܒܬܪ ܕܨܡܘ ܘܨܠܝܘ ܣܡܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܐ ܘܫܕܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ
3 And after they had fasted, and prayed, they placed The Hand upon them, and sent them.

ܘܗܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܐܫܬܠܚܘ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܢܚܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܣܠܘܩܝܐ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܪܕܘ ܒܝܡܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܩܘܦܪܘܣ
4 And they, after sending them from The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, they went down unto Seluqiya {Seleucia}, and from there they journeyed by sea, as far as unto Quprus {Cyprus}.

ܘܟܕ ܥܠܘ ܠܣܠܡܢܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܡܣܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܡܫܡܫ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ
5 And when they had entered unto Salamne {Salamis} city, they were Declaring The Miltheh d’Maran {The Word of Our Lord} in The Kenushatha d’Yehudaye {The Synagogues of the Judeans/the Jews}, and Yukhanan {John/i.e. John Mark} ministered unto them.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܟܪܟܘܗ ܠܟܠܗ ܓܙܪܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܦܦܘܣ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܚܪܫܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܓܠܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܒܪ ܫܘܡܐ
6 And when they had gone around unto all the island, as far as Paphus {Paphos} city, they found a certain man, a sorcerer; a Yehudaya {a Judean/a Jew}, who was a false prophet, whose name was Bar-Shuma.

ܗܢܐ ܕܒܝܩ ܗܘܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܚܟܝܡܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܬܘܦܛܘܣ ܘܡܬܩܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܣܪܓܝܘܣ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܩܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܬܘܦܛܘܣ ܠܫܐܘܠ ܘܠܒܪܢܒܐ ܘܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܫܡܥ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
7 This one was an adherent to a wise man, who was a Proconsul, and was called Sergius Paulus. And the Proconsul had called for Shaul {Saul} and for Bar-Naba {Barnabas}, and sought that he might hear from them The Miltha d’Alaha {The Word of God}.

ܩܐܡ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܘܩܒܠܗܘܢ ܗܘ ܗܢܐ ܚܪܫܐ ܒܪܫܘܡܐ ܕܡܬܬܪܓܡ ܫܡܗ ܐܠܘܡܘܣ ܡܛܠ ܕܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܥܩܡܝܘܗܝ ܠܐܢܬܘܦܛܘܣ ܡܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ
8 But, there stood to oppose them, this sorcerer, Bar-Shuma; whose name is interpreted “Elumus” {Elymas}, on account that he had desired to divert the Proconsul from The Haymanutha {The Faith}.

ܫܐܘܠ ܕܝܢ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܩܪܝ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܐܬܡܠܝ ܗܘܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܚܪ ܒܗ
9 Then, Shaul {Saul}, he who is called Paulus {Paul}, was filled with The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, and looked at him,

ܘܐܡܪ ܐܘ ܕܡܠܐ ܟܠ ܢܟܠܝܢ ܘܟܠܗܝܢ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܟܠ ܩܪܨܐ ܘܒܥܠܕܒܒܐ ܕܟܠܗ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܠܐ ܫܠܐ ܐܢܬ ܠܡܥܩܡܘ ܐܘܪܚܬܗ ܬܪܝܨܬܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ
10 and said unto him, “Oh! You who are entirely deceit-filled, and totally evil; the son of the akel qartsa {the feeder of slander/the accuser i.e. the son of the devil}, and the enemy of all Righteousness! Will you not cease to divert the correct Way of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}?

ܘܗܫܐ ܐܝܕܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܥܠܝܟ ܘܬܗܘܐ ܣܡܐ ܘܠܐ ܬܚܙܐ ܫܡܫܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܙܒܢܐ ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܢܦܠ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܥܡܛܢܐ ܘܚܫܘܟܐ ܘܡܬܟܪܟ ܗܘܐ ܘܒܥܐ ܕܡܢܘ ܢܐܚܘܕ ܒܐܝܕܗ
11 And now, The Hand {i.e. The Power} of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} is upon you, and you will be blind, and will not see the shemsha {the sun} up to a time!” And at that moment there fell upon him a mist and a darkness, and he went around and sought that someone might take him by the hand.

ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܬܘܦܛܘܣ ܡܕܡ ܕܗܘܐ ܐܬܕܡܪ ܘܗܝܡܢ ܒܝܘܠܦܢܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ
12 And when the Proconsul saw the thing which happened, he wondered, and believed in The Teaching of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}.

ܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܝܢ ܘܒܪܢܒܐ ܪܕܘ ܒܝܡܐ ܡܢ ܦܦܘܣ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܦܪܓܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܦܡܦܘܠܝܐ ܘܦܪܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
13 Then, Paulus {Paul} and Bar-Naba {Barnabas} journeyed by sea from Paphus {Paphos} city, and came unto Pergi {Perga} city, of Pamphulia {Pamphylia}. And Yukhanan {John/i.e. John Mark} separated from them, and went unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}.

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܢܦܩܘ ܡܢ ܦܪܓܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܦܝܣܝܕܝܐ ܘܥܠܘ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܝܬܒܘ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܫܒܬܐ
14 Then, they went out from Pergi {Perga}, and came unto Antiakia {Antioch}, a city of Pisidia, and they entered unto the Kenushtha {the Synagogue} and sat down during the day of the Shabtha {the Sabbath}.

ܘܒܬܪ ܕܐܬܩܪܝ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܘܢܒܝܐ ܫܠܚܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܒܘܝܐܐ ܡܠܠܘ ܥܡ ܥܡܐ
15 And after The Namusa {The Law} and The Nabiye {The Prophets} were read, the Qashishe {the Elders} of The Kenushtha {The Synagogue} called out unto them, and they said, “Men, brothers, if there is for you a word of encouragement; speak with the Ama {the People}!”

ܘܩܡ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܐܢܝܦ ܐܝܕܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܚܠܝܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܫܡܥܘ
16 And Paulus {Paul} arose, and waved his hand and said, “Men, sons of IysraIyl {Israel}, and those who are revering Alaha {God}, listen!

ܐܠܗܗ ܕܥܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܓܒܝܐ ܠܐܒܗܬܢ ܘܐܪܝܡ ܘܐܘܪܒ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܗܘܘ ܬܘܬܒܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܕܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܒܕܪܥܐ ܪܡܐ ܐܦܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢܗ
17 The Alaheh {The God} of this Ama {People} chose our fathers, and exalted and made them great while they were sojourners in the land of Mitsriyn {Egypt}, and with great Power {lit. a high Arm} brought them out from it.

ܘܬܪܣܝ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ
18 And He nourished them in the desert; forty years.

ܘܗܓܡ ܫܒܥܐ ܥܡܡܝܢ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܕܟܢܥܢ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܪܥܗܘܢ ܝܘܪܬܢܐ
19 And He destroyed seven Nations in the land of Kanan {Canaan}, and gave the land an inheritance for them.

ܘܐܪܒܥܡܐܐ ܘܚܡܫܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܝܢܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܡܘܐܝܠ ܢܒܝܐ
20 And for four-hundred and fifty years He gave judges unto them, as far as unto ShamuIyl Nabiya {Samuel, the Prophet}.

ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܐܠܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܫܐܘܠ ܒܪ ܩܝܫ ܓܒܪܐ ܡܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܕܒܢܝܡܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ
21 And then, they asked for a King, and Alaha {God} gave unto them Shaul {Saul}, son of Qish {Kish}, a man from the Tribe of Benyamin {Benjamin}; forty years.

ܘܢܣܒܗ ܘܐܩܝܡ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܕܘܝܕ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܐܣܗܕ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܐܫܟܚܬ ܠܕܘܝܕ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܝܫܝ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܝܟ ܠܒܝ ܗܘ ܢܥܒܕ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܨܒܝܢܝ
22 And He took him away, and raised up for them David, the King, and Testified about him, and said: ‘I have found David, the son of Eshay {Jesse}, a man like unto My heart. He will perform all My desires.’

ܡܢ ܙܪܥܗ ܕܗܢܐ ܐܩܝܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܝܣܪܝܠ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܐܫܬܘܕܝ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܦܪܘܩܐ
23 From the seed of this one, Alaha {God} rose up for IysraIyl {Israel}, according to what He promised: Eshu {Y’shu}, The Deliverer,

ܘܫܕܪ ܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܕܢܟܪܙ ܩܕܡ ܡܐܬܝܬܗ ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܠܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܕܝܣܪܝܠ
24 and sent Yukhanan {John} before His coming, to Proclaim The Immersion {Baptism} of Repentance for all the Ama d’IysraIyl {the People of Israel}.

ܘܟܕ ܡܫܠܡ ܗܘܐ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܬܫܡܫܬܗ ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܘ ܣܒܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܝܬܝ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܗܐ ܐܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܫܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܫܪܐ ܥܪܩܐ ܕܡܣܢܘܗܝ
25 And when Yukhanan {John} had fulfilled his Ministry, he said: ‘Who do you suppose that I am? I am not He, but look! He who comes after me, that One I am not worthy that I should loosen the straps of His sandals.’

ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܒܢܝ ܫܪܒܬܗ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܚܠܝܢ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܘ ܐܫܬܕܪܬ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܚܝܐ
26 Men, brothers, sons of the lineage of Abraham, and those among you who are revering Alaha {God}: Unto you The Miltha d’Khaye {The Word of Life}, is sent!

ܗܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܥܡܘܪܐ ܕܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܪܫܢܝܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܐܪܓܫܘ ܒܗ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܢ ܒܟܠ ܫܒܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܢܘܗܝ ܘܫܠܡܘ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܕܟܬܝܒܢ
27 For, those; the inhabitants of Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and their rulers; they didn’t perceive it, not even in The Writings of the Nabiye {the Prophets}, which are read at every Shaba {Sabbath}, but rather, they judged Him, and they fulfilled all those things which were written.

ܘܟܕ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܥܠܬܐ ܕܡܘܬܐ ܡܕܡ ܫܐܠܘ ܡܢ ܦܝܠܛܘܣ ܕܢܩܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ
28 And when they couldn’t find a cause of death, they asked from Pilatus {Pilate} that they might kill Him.

ܘܟܕ ܫܠܡܘ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܚܬܘܗܝ ܡܢ ܨܠܝܒܐ ܘܣܡܘܗܝ ܒܝܬ ܩܒܘܪܐ
29 And when they had fulfilled every thing which was written concerning Him, they brought Him down from The Cross, and placed Him in the tomb house.

ܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܩܝܡܗ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ
30 Yet, Alaha {God} raised Him from the place of the dead!

ܘܐܬܚܙܝ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܣܠܩܘ ܥܡܗ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܗܫܐ ܣܗܕܘܗܝ ܠܘܬ ܥܡܐ
31 And He was seen many days to those who went up with Him from Galila {Galilee} unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and these are now His witnesses unto the Ama {the People}.

ܘܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܗܐ ܡܣܒܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܫܘܘܕܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܗܘܐ ܠܘܬ ܐܒܗܬܢ
32 And look! We are also Declaring unto you, that The Promise which was made unto our fathers,

ܗܐ ܫܡܠܝܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܢ ܠܒܢܝܗܘܢ ܕܐܩܝܡ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܒܡܙܡܘܪܐ ܕܬܪܝܢ ܕܒܪܝ ܐܢܬ ܐܢܐ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܝܠܕܬܟ
33 look! Alaha {God} has fulfilled it for us, for their Sons, in that He raised Eshu {Y’shu}, according to that which is written in the second Mazmura {Psalm}: ‘You are My Son; today I have begotten You!’

ܘܗܟܢܐ ܐܩܝܡܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܕܬܘܒ ܠܐ ܢܗܦܘܟ ܢܚܙܐ ܚܒܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܐܬܠ ܠܟܘܢ ܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܡܗܝܡܢܬܐ
34 And thus, Alaha {God} raised Him from the place of the dead, so that He should not again return that He see corruption {i.e. physical decay}, according to that which He has said: ‘I will give unto You the sure Taybutheh {Grace} of David.’

ܘܬܘܒ ܐܡܪ ܒܕܘܟܬܐ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܗܒܬ ܠܚܣܝܟ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܚܒܠܐ
35 And furthermore, He has said in another place: ‘You have not allowed for Your Pure One that He should see corruption.’

ܕܘܝܕ ܓܝܪ ܒܫܪܒܬܗ ܫܡܫ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܫܟܒ ܘܐܬܬܘܣܦ ܥܠ ܐܒܗܘܗܝ ܘܚܙܐ ܚܒܠܐ
36 For, David ministered the will of Alaha {God} in his own generation, and slept, and was added unto his fathers, and has seen corruption.

ܗܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܩܝܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܚܙܐ ܚܒܠܐ
37 Yet, this One, whom Alaha {God} has raised up, hasn’t seen corruption.

ܕܥܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܚܝܢ ܕܒܗ ܒܗܢܐ ܡܬܟܪܙ ܠܟܘܢ ܫܘܒܩܢ ܚܛܗܐ
38 Now then, know this brothers, that, by this One, the forgiveness of sins is Proclaimed unto you!

ܘܡܢ ܟܠ ܕܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܬܘܢ ܒܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܡܘܫܐ ܕܬܙܕܕܩܘܢ ܒܗܢܐ ܟܠ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܡܙܕܕܩ
39 And from all that we were not able to be justified, by The Namusa d’Mushe {The Law of Moses}, by this One, all who believe, are justified!

ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܐܬܐ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܒܢܒܝܐ
40 Beware therefore, that perhaps there may come upon you the thing which is written in The Nabiye {The Prophets}:

ܕܚܙܘ ܡܒܣܪܢܐ ܘܬܬܡܗܘܢ ܘܬܬܚܒܠܘܢ ܕܥܒܕܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܒܝܘܡܝܟܘܢ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܬܗܝܡܢܘܢ ܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܡܫܬܥܐ ܠܟܘܢ
41 ‘Look! You despisers, and be amazed and perish; for, I do a work in your days which you will not believe if a man relates it unto you.’”

ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܨܐܕܝܗܘܢ ܒܥܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܠܫܒܬܐ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܢܡܠܠܘܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ
42 And when they had gone up from being with them, they sought from them that for the next Shabtha {Sabbath}, they might speak these words with them.

ܘܡܢ ܕܐܫܬܪܝܬ ܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗܘܢ ܘܐܦ ܓܝܘܪܐ ܕܕܚܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܦܝܣܝܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܢܩܝܦܝܢ ܠܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
43 And when The Kenushtha {The Synagogue} was released, many Yehudaye {Judeans/Jews} went after them, and also Proselytes who were revering Alaha {God}. And they were speaking and entreating unto them, so that they should adhere unto The Taybutheh d’Alaha {The Grace of God}.

ܘܠܫܒܬܐ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܟܢܫܬ ܟܠܗ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܠܡܫܡܥ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
44 And the next Shabtha {Sabbath}, all the city gathered to hear The Miltheh d’Alaha {The Word of God}.

ܘܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܟܢܫܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܚܣܡܐ ܘܩܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܡܠܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܡܓܕܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ
45 And when the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} saw the many gathered, they were filled with envy, and they rose up to oppose the words which Paulus {Paul} had spoke, and they were reviling.

ܐܡܪܘ ܕܝܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܒܪܢܒܐ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܘ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܩܕܡܝܬ ܕܬܬܐܡܪ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܕܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܘܦܣܩܬܘܢ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܫܘܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܗܐ ܡܬܦܢܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܢ ܠܘܬ ܥܡܡܐ
46 And then, Paulus {Paul} and Bar-Naba {Barnabas} said boldly {lit. with an open eye}: “Unto you it is fitting that you were the first to be spoken The Word of Alaha {God}, but rather, on account that you pushed it away from you, and you have decided concerning your souls that you are not worthy for The Life which is everlasting, look! We turn towards the Amme {the Peoples/the Gentiles}!

ܗܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܦܩܕܢ ܡܪܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܣܡܬܟ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܠܚܝܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܣܘܦܝܗ ܕܐܪܥܐ
47 For, thus has Maran {Our Lord} Commanded us, as which is written: ‘I have placed you The Light for the Amme {the Peoples/the Gentiles}, so that you should be for Life; as far as the ends of the Earth.’”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܡܐ ܚܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܫܒܚܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܗܝܡܢܘ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܣܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
48 And when the Gentiles were hearing this, they were rejoicing, and giving praises unto Alaha {God}, and those believed who were appointed for The Life which is everlasting.

ܘܡܠܬܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܡܬܡܠܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܟܠܗ ܗܘ ܐܬܪܐ
49 And The Miltheh d’MarYa {The Word of The Lord-YHWH} was spoken in all that region.

ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܓܪܓܘ ܠܪܫܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܠܢܫܐ ܥܬܝܪܬܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܚܠܢ ܗܘܝ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܩܝܡܘ ܪܕܘܦܝܐ ܥܠ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܥܠ ܒܪܢܒܐ ܘܐܦܩܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢ ܬܚܘܡܝܗܘܢ
50 But, the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} incited the Rishe {the Chiefs/the Leaders} of the city, and the wealthy women, those with them who were revering Alaha {God}, and they rose up persecution against Paulus {Paul}, and against Bar-Naba {Barnabas}, and they cast them from their borders.

ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩܘ ܢܦܨܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܚܠܐ ܕܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܝܩܢܘܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
51 And when they went forth, they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and they came unto Eyqanun {Iconium} city.

ܘܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܡܬܡܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
52 And The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students} were filled with joy, and The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}.

Chapter 14
ܘܐܬܘ ܘܥܠܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܗܟܢܐ ܡܠܠܘ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܗܝܡܢܘܢ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܡܢ ܝܘܢܝܐ
1 And they came and entered into The Kenushtha d’Yehudaye {The Synagogue/Assembly of the Judeans/the Jews}, and they spoke in such a way with them so as that many believed from the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} and from the Yawnaye {the Greeks}.

ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܛܦܝܣܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܪܓܘ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܕܢܒܐܫܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܚܐ
2 Then, Yehudaye {Judeans/Jews}; those who were not convinced, were inciting the Gentiles, so that they might do harm unto The Brothers.

ܘܗܢܘܢ ܙܒܢܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܘܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠ ܡܪܝܐ ܘܗܘ ܡܣܗܕ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܒܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܬܕܡܪܬܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ ܒܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ
3 And they were there a long time, and with boldness {lit. an open eye} they were speaking about MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, and He witnessed concerning The Miltha {The Word} of His Grace, in signs and miracles which He performed through their hands.

ܘܟܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܦܠܝܓ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܥܡ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܡܢܗܘܢ ܢܩܝܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܫܠܝܚܐ
4 And all the gathering of the city was divided; from those who were with the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews}, and from those who were following The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}.

ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܓܙܡܐ ܡܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܘܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܪܫܢܝܗܘܢ ܕܢܨܥܪܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܢܪܓܡܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܟܐܦܐ
5 Then, there was a threat upon them from the Gentiles, and from the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews}, and their Rulers, that they should afflict them, and should stone them with rocks.

ܘܟܕ ܝܕܥܘ ܫܢܝܘ ܘܐܬܓܘܣܘ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܠܘܩܢܝܐ ܠܘܣܛܪܐ ܘܕܪܒܐ ܘܩܘܪܝܐ ܕܚܕܪܝܗܝܢ
6 And when they recognized this, they departed, and took refuge in the cities of Luqania {Lycaonia}, Lustra {Lystra}, and Derbe, and the villages which surrounded them,

ܘܬܡܢ ܡܣܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ
7 and there, they were Proclaiming.

ܘܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܒܠܘܣܛܪܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܣܓܝܦ ܗܘܐ ܒܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܚܓܝܪܐ ܕܡܢ ܟܪܣ ܐܡܗ ܕܡܡܬܘܡ ܠܐ ܗܠܟ ܗܘܐ
8 And a certain gabra {man} dwelt in Lustra {Lystra} city, who was disabled in his feet; lame from his mother’s womb, who had not ever walked.

ܗܢܐ ܫܡܥ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܡܡܠܠ ܘܟܕ ܚܙܝܗܝ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܐܫܬܘܕܥ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܢܚܐ
9 This one was listening unto Paulus {Paul}, who was speaking. And when Paulus {Paul} saw him, and recognized that there was Haymanutha {Faith} in him, that he might Live,

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܠܟ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܩܘܡ ܥܠ ܪܓܠܝܟ ܘܫܘܪ ܩܡ ܘܗܠܟ
10 he said unto him in a loud voice, “To you I say, in The Name of Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}: Rise upon your feet!” And he jumped up, stood still, and walked!

ܘܟܢܫܐ ܕܥܡܐ ܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܡܕܡ ܕܥܒܕ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܐܪܝܡܘ ܩܠܗܘܢ ܒܠܫܢܗ ܕܐܬܪܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܕܡܝܘ ܒܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܘܢܚܬܘ ܠܘܬܢ
11 And the gathering of the Ama {the People}, when they saw the thing which Paulus {Paul} performed, they lifted up their voice in the language of the region, and said, “The gods resemble the sons of men, and they have come down unto us!”

ܘܫܡܝܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܒܪܢܒܐ ܡܪܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܗܪܡܝܣ ܡܛܠ ܕܗܘ ܡܫܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܠܬܐ
12 And they called Bar-Naba {Barnabas}, ‘mare alahe’ {the lord of the gods}, and Paulus {Paul}, ‘hermes’, on account that he had begun with the matter.

ܘܟܘܡܪܐ ܕܡܪܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܝܬܝ ܬܘܪܐ ܘܟܠܝܠܐ ܠܬܪܥܐ ܕܕܪܬܐ ܐܬܪ ܕܫܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܕܒܚ ܠܗܘܢ
13 And the priest of mare alahe {the lord of the gods}, that one who was outside of the city, brought oxen and crowns unto the gate of the courtyard of the place which they were lodging, and was desiring that he might sacrifice unto them.

ܒܪܢܒܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܦܘܠܘܣ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܣܕܩܘ ܢܚܬܝܗܘܢ ܘܫܘܪܘ ܢܦܩܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܟܠܘܣ ܘܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ
14 But, Bar-Naba {Barnabas} and Paulus {Paul}, when they had heard it, they tore their garments, and they leaped up, going out unto the crowd, and were crying out,

ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܚܢܢ ܚܫܘܫܐ ܐܟܘܬܟܘܢ ܕܡܣܒܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܒܛܠܬܐ ܬܬܦܢܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܚܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܥܒܕ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܐܪܥܐ ܘܝܡܡܐ ܘܟܠ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗܘܢ
15 and they said, “Men! What are you doing? We also are sons of men! We have feelings like you do. We who are Declaring unto you, that from these vanities you should turn towards The Living Alaha {God}; He who made the Heavens and the Earth, and the seas, and all which are in them.

ܗܘ ܕܒܕܪܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܫܒܩ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܕܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܬܐ ܕܢܦܫܗܘܢ
16 That One who in former generations had allowed for all the Amme {the Peoples} that they should go in the way of their own souls,

ܟܕ ܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܢܦܫܗ ܕܠܐ ܣܗܕܘ ܒܕܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܛܒܬܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܡܚܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܛܪܐ ܘܡܪܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܦܐܪܐ ܒܙܒܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܡܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܬܘܪܣܝܐ ܘܒܣܝܡܘܬܐ ܠܒܘܬܗܘܢ
17 while not leaving His Soul without testimony, inasmuch as He is performing good for them from the Heavens, and is sending down rain for them, and is increasing fruits in their seasons, and is filling them with nourishment and pleasantness for their hearts.”

ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܡܚܣܢ ܟܠܘ ܠܥܡܐ ܕܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܢܕܒܚ ܠܗܘܢ
18 And while they were saying these things, they barely restrained the Ama {the People} that someone should not sacrifice unto them!

ܐܬܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܬܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܩܢܘܢ ܘܡܢ ܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ ܘܫܓܫܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܠܥܡܐ ܘܪܓܡܘܗܝ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܓܪܘܗܝ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܣܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܡܝܬ ܠܗ
19 Then, there came there Yehudaye {Judeans/Jews} from Eyqanun {Iconium}, and from Antiakia {Antioch}, and they stirred up the Ama {the People} against them, and they stoned Paulus {Paul}, and they dragged him outside of the city, on account that they thought him to be dead.

ܘܟܢܫܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܩܡ ܥܠ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܦܩ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܥܡ ܒܪܢܒܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܕܪܒܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
20 And The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students} gathered over him, and he rose up entering the city. And the next day he went out from there with Bar-Naba {Barnabas}, and they came unto Derbe city.

ܘܟܕ ܡܣܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܒܢܝ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܗܝ ܬܠܡܕܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܗܦܟܘ ܐܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܠܘܣܛܪܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܠܐܝܩܢܘܢ ܘܠܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ
21 And when they had Declared unto the sons of that city, many were Discipled. And turning back, they came unto Lustra {Lystra} city, and unto Eyqanun {Iconium}, and unto Antiakia {Antioch},

ܟܕ ܡܫܪܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܢܦܫܬܗܘܢ ܕܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܢܩܘܘܢ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܒܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܠܐ ܠܡܥܠ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
22 where they were strengthening the souls of The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students}, and were seeking from them that they should remain in The Haymanutha {The Faith}, and were saying unto them that through much affliction it is fitting to enter unto The Malkutheh d’Alaha {The Kingdom of God}.

ܘܐܩܝܡܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܒܟܠ ܥܕܬܐ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܟܕ ܨܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܡܨܠܝܢ ܘܡܓܥܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܪܢ ܗܘ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܗ
23 And they raised up Qashishe {Elders} for them in every Edtha {Assembly}, after they had fasted with them, and prayed, and had entrusted them unto Maran {Our Lord}, that One in whom they believed.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܟܪܟܘ ܒܐܬܪܐ ܕܦܝܣܝܕܝܐ ܐܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܦܡܦܘܠܝܐ
24 And after they had gone around in the region of Pisidia, they came unto Pamphulia {Pamphylia}.

ܘܟܕ ܡܠܠܘ ܒܦܪܓܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܢܚܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܝܛܠܝܐ
25 And after they had spoken The Miltha d’MarYa {The Word of The Lord-YHWH} in Pergi {Perga} city, they descended unto Eytalia {Attalia}.

ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܪܕܘ ܒܝܡܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܡܓܥܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܠܥܒܕܐ ܗܘ ܕܫܠܡܘ
26 And from there they journeyed by sea, and came unto Antiakia {Antioch}, on account that from there they were entrusted unto The Taybutheh d’MarYa {The Grace of The Lord-YHWH}; unto the work which they had completed.

ܘܟܕ ܟܢܫܘ ܟܠܗ ܥܕܬܐ ܡܫܬܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܠܗܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܕܦܬܚ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܠܥܡܡܐ
27 And when all The Edtha {The Assembly} were gathered, they were relating every thing which Alaha {God} had performed with them, and that unto the Gentiles, He had opened The Door of The Haymanutha {The Faith}.

ܘܙܒܢܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ
28 And they were there a long time with The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students}.

Chapter 15
ܢܚܬܘ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕ ܘܡܠܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܚܐ ܕܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܓܙܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܥܝܕܐ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܚܐ
1 Then, there came down some from Yehud {Judea}, and they were teaching The Brothers that if you are not circumcised with regard to the custom of The Namusa {The Law}, you are not able to be made alive.

ܘܗܘܐ ܫܓܘܫܝܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܒܥܬܐ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܠܒܪܢܒܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܗܘܬ ܕܢܣܩܘܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܒܪܢܒܐ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܡܛܠ ܗܕܐ ܒܥܬܐ
2 And there was much disturbance and disputation with them and Paulus {Paul} and Bar-Naba {Barnabas}. And it happened that Paulus {Paul} and Bar-Naba {Barnabas}, and others with them, should go up unto The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones} and The Qashishe {The Elders} who were in Urishlem {Jerusalem} because of this question.

ܘܠܘܝܬ ܫܕܪܬ ܐܢܘܢ ܥܕܬܐ ܘܪܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܟܠܗ ܦܘܢܝܩܐ ܘܐܦ ܒܝܬ ܫܡܪܝܐ ܟܕ ܡܫܬܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠ ܦܘܢܝܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ ܘܥܒܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܚܐ
3 And being escorted, The Edtha {The Assembly} sent them, and they were journeying in all Puniqi {Phoenicia}, and also Beth Shamraye {the place of the Samaritans}, where they were relating concerning the restoration of the Gentiles, and they were causing great joy for all The Brothers.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܐܬܩܒܠܘ ܡܢ ܥܕܬܐ ܘܡܢ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܡܢ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܐܫܬܥܝܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ
4 And when they had come unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}, they were received from The Edtha {The Assembly}, and from The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, and from The Qashishe {The Elders}, and they related unto them all that Alaha {God} had done with them.

ܩܡܘ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܘܠܐ ܗܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܡܓܙܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܬܦܩܕܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܢܛܪܘܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܡܘܫܐ
5 Then, there arose some from the teaching of the Phrishe {the Pharisees}, who were Believers, and they said that “It is proper to circumcise them, and they should be commanded that they should keep The Namusa d’Mushe {The Law of Moses}.”

ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܕܝܢ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܢܚܙܘܢ ܥܠ ܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ
6 Then, The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones} and The Qashishe {The Elders} assembled, so that they should see about this matter.

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܬ ܒܥܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܩܡ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܡܢ ܦܘܡܝ ܕܝܠܝ ܓܒܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܢܫܡܥܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܣܒܪܬܐ ܘܢܗܝܡܢܘܢ
7 And while there was much dispute, Shimeun {Simeon} arose and said unto them, “Men, brothers, you know that from the first days, from my own mouth, Alaha {God} has chosen that the Gentiles should hear The Miltha d’Sabartha {The Word of The Hopeful Message}, and should believe!

ܘܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܕܥ ܕܒܠܒܘܬܐ ܐܣܗܕ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܠܢ
8 And Alaha {God}, who knows that which is in the hearts, Testified concerning them, and gave unto them The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, as unto us,

ܘܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܦܪܫ ܒܝܢܝܢ ܘܠܗܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܕܟܝ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܠܒܘܬܗܘܢ
9 and didn’t distinguish a thing between us and for them, on account that He cleansed their hearts by The Haymanutha {The Faith}.

ܘܗܫܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܡܢܣܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܬܣܝܡܘܢ ܢܝܪܐ ܥܠ ܨܘܪܝܗܘܢ ܕܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܦ ܠܐ ܐܒܗܬܢ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܚܢܢ ܐܫܟܚܢ ܠܡܛܥܢ
10 And now, you, why do you test Alaha {God}, as that you should put a yoke upon the necks of The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students}, which not even our fathers, nor we, were able to carry?

ܐܠܐ ܒܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܢܚܐ ܐܟܘܬܗܘܢ
11 But rather, by The Taybutheh d’Maran Eshu Meshikha {The Grace of Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}, we are believing that we will Live, just as they are.”

ܘܫܬܩܘ ܟܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܘܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܠܒܪܢܒܐ ܕܡܫܬܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܓܒܪܘܬܐ ܒܥܡܡܐ
12 And all The Kensha {The Council} were silent, and they were listening unto Paulus {Paul} and unto Bar-Naba {Barnabas}, who were relating all that which Alaha {God} had done through their hands; signs and wonders, among the Gentiles.

ܘܒܬܪ ܕܫܬܩܘ ܩܡ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܐܡܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܫܘܡܥܘܢܝ
13 And after that they were silenced, Yaqub {Jacob/James} arose, and said, “Men, brothers, hear me!

ܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܫܬܥܝ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܫܪܝ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܡܓܒܐ ܡܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܥܡܐ ܠܫܡܗ
14 Shimeun {Simeon} has related unto us how Alaha {God} began to choose from the Amme {the Peoples/the Nations/Gentiles}, a Ama {People} for His Name.

ܘܠܗܕܐ ܫܠܡܢ ܡܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܟܬܝܒ
15 And this, fulfilling the words of the Nabiye {the Prophets}, according to what is written:

ܕܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܗܦܘܟ ܘܐܩܝܡ ܡܫܟܢܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܢܦܠ ܘܐܒܢܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܢܦܠ ܡܢܗ ܘܐܩܝܡܝܘܗܝ
16 ‘After this I will return, and establish The Tabernacle of David, which has fallen, and will build the thing which has fallen from it, and will establish it,

17 thus, in this way, so that the rest of the sons of men should seek for MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, and all the Amme {the Gentiles} who have called on My Name, says MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, who performs all these things.’

ܝܕܝܥܝܢ ܡܢ ܥܠܡ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ
18 The works of Alaha {God} are known from eternity!

ܡܛܠ ܗܕܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܫܚܩܝܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܡܬܦܢܝܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ
19 Because of this, I am ordering that we not be harassing those who are turning unto Alaha {God}, from the Gentiles.

ܐܠܐ ܢܫܬܠܚ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܦܪܝܩܝܢ ܡܢ ܛܡܐܘܬܐ ܕܕܒܝܚܐ ܘܡܢ ܙܢܝܘܬܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܚܢܝܩܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܡܐ
20 But rather, we should send unto them that they should be abstaining from the uncleanliness of that which is sacrificed, and from fornication, and from that which is strangled, and from blood.

ܡܘܫܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܢ ܕܪܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܒܟܠ ܡܕܝܢܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܟܪܘܙܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܒܟܠ ܫܒܝܢ ܩܪܝܢ ܠܗ
21 For, Mushe {Moses}, from previous generations, in every city, there is for him heralds in The Kenushatha {The Synagogues}, who during all Shabyin {Sabbath Days}, proclaim for him.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܥܡ ܟܠܗ ܥܕܬܐ ܓܒܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܘܫܕܪܘ ܠܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ ܥܡ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܒܪܢܒܐ ܠܝܗܘܕܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܒܪܫܒܐ ܘܠܫܝܠܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܪܫܐ ܗܘܘ ܒܗܘܢ ܒܐܚܐ
22 Then, The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones/The Emissaries} and The Qashishe {The Elders}, with all The Edtha {The Assembly}, selected men from themselves, and sent them unto Antiuki {Antioch} with Paulus {Paul} and Bar-Naba {Barnabas}; Yehuda {Judah}, who is called Bar-Shaba {Barsabas}, and Shiyla {Silas}; men who were leaders with them among The Brothers.

ܘܟܬܒܘ ܐܓܪܬܐ ܒܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܐܚܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ ܘܒܣܘܪܝܐ ܘܒܩܝܠܝܩܝܐ ܐܚܐ ܕܡܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܫܠܡ
23 And they wrote a letter by their hands, thus: “The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, and The Qashishe {The Elders}, and The Brothers: To those who are in Antiuki {Antioch}, and in Suria {Syria}, and in Qiliqia {Cilicia}; The Brothers who are from the Amme {the Gentiles}: Shlama {Peace}!

ܫܡܝܥ ܠܢ ܕܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢܢ ܢܦܩܘ ܘܕܠܚܟܘܢ ܒܡܠܐ ܘܐܗܦܟܘ ܢܦܫܬܟܘܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܬܗܘܘܢ ܓܙܪܝܢ ܘܢܛܪܝܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܚܢܢ ܠܐ ܦܩܕܢ ܐܢܘܢ
24 To us it was heard that men from us had went out, and were troubling you with words, and overthrowing your souls, when they were saying that you are to be circumcised, and be observing The Namusa {The Law}; that which we have not commanded them!

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܚܫܒܢ ܟܠܢ ܟܕ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܓܒܝܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܘܫܕܪܢ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܥܡ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܒܪܢܒܐ ܚܒܝܒܝܢ
25 Because of this, when we were all assembled, we had determined and chose men, and have sent them unto you, with Paulus {Paul} and Bar-Naba {Barnabas}, our dear ones;

ܐܢܫܐ ܕܐܫܠܡܘ ܢܦܫܬܗܘܢ ܚܠܦ ܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
26 men who have delivered up their souls for The Name of Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

ܘܫܕܪܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܝܗܘܕܐ ܘܠܫܝܠܐ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܢܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ
27 And we sent with them Yehuda {Judah} and Shiyla {Silas}, so that they, by word, should speak unto you these things .

ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܨܒܝܢܐ ܠܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܐܦ ܠܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܬܬܣܝܡ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܝܘܩܪܐ ܝܬܝܪܐ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܐܠܨܢ
28 For, it was pleasing unto The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, and also unto us, that there shouldn’t be put on you a greater burden, except from these things which are necessary:

ܕܬܬܪܚܩܘܢ ܡܢ ܕܕܒܝܚܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܡܐ ܘܡܢ ܚܢܝܩܐ ܘܡܢ ܙܢܝܘܬܐ ܕܟܕ ܬܛܪܘܢ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܫܦܝܪ ܬܗܘܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܫܪܝܪܝܢ ܒܡܪܢ
29 That you keep away from that which is sacrificed, and from blood, and from the strangled, and from fornication. That when you keep your souls from these things , you will do well. Be steadfast in Maran {Our Lord}!”

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܫܬܠܚܘ ܐܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܢܛܝܟܝܐ ܘܟܢܫܘ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܘܝܗܒܘ ܐܓܪܬܐ
30 Then, those who were sent, came unto Antiakia {Antioch}, and gathered all the Ama {the People}, and gave them The Letter.

ܘܟܕ ܩܪܘ ܚܕܝܘ ܘܐܬܒܝܐܘ
31 And when they read it, they rejoiced, and were encouraged.

ܘܒܡܠܬܐ ܥܬܝܪܬܐ ܚܝܠܘ ܠܐܚܐ ܘܩܝܡܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܒܝܬ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܘܫܝܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܦ ܗܢܘܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܗܘܘ
32 And with copious speech they were strengthening The Brothers, and Yehuda {Judah} and Shiyla {Silas} were establishing those of the place, on account that they also were Nabiye {Prophets}.

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܙܒܢܐ ܫܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܚܐ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܠܘܬ ܫܠܝܚܐ
33 And after they were there a time, The Brothers dismissed them in Shlama {Peace}, unto The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}.

Note: vs 34 – The Eastern Aramaic text doesn’t have the words “But, it was the pleasure of Silas to remain there still” as is found in a few Greek copies, and copied from them into the Western Syriac version of the Aramaic NT text, called the Peshitto.

ܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܝܢ ܘܒܪܢܒܐ ܩܘܝܘ ܗܘܘ ܒܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ ܘܡܠܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܣܒܪܝܢ ܥܡ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
34 Yet, Paulus {Paul} and Bar-Naba {Barnabas} were remaining in Antiuki {Antioch}, and they were teaching and declaring, with many others, The Miltheh d’Alaha {The Word of God}.

ܘܒܬܪ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܐܡܪ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܠܒܪܢܒܐ ܢܬܦܢܐ ܘܢܣܥܘܪ ܠܐܚܐ ܕܒܟܠ ܡܕܝܢܐ ܕܐܟܪܙܢ ܒܗ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܢܚܙܐ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܝܕܝܢ
35 And after some days, Paulus {Paul} said unto Bar-Naba {Barnabas}, “Let us return and visit The Brothers who are in every city in which we have Proclaimed The Miltha d’Alaha {The Word of God}, and will see what they have been doing.”

ܒܪܢܒܐ ܕܝܢ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܕܒܪ ܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܟܢܝ ܡܪܩܘܣ
36 Then, Bar-Naba {Barnabas} was desiring that they might take Yukhanan {John}, who is surnamed Marqus {Mark}.

ܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܕܒܪܗ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܫܒܩ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܗܢܘܢ ܒܦܡܦܘܠܝܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܙܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ
37 Yet, Paulus {Paul} was not willing that he should be taken with them, on account that he had left them while they were in Pamphulia {Pamphilia}, and didn’t go with them.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܚܪܝܢܐ ܦܪܫܘ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܚܕ ܘܒܪܢܒܐ ܕܒܪ ܠܡܪܩܘܣ ܘܪܕܘ ܒܝܡܐ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܩܘܦܪܘܣ
38 On account of this contention, they separated one from the other, and Bar-Naba {Barnabas} took Marqus {Mark}, and they journeyed by sea, and went unto Quprus {Cyprus}.

ܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܝܢ ܓܒܐ ܠܗ ܠܫܝܠܐ ܘܢܦܩ ܟܕ ܡܓܥܠ ܡܢ ܐܚܐ ܠܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
39 Then, Paulus chose for himself Shiyla {Silas}, and went out, after being entrusted from The Brothers unto The Taybutheh d’Alaha {The Grace of God}.

ܘܪܕܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܣܘܪܝܐ ܘܒܩܝܠܝܩܝܐ ܘܡܩܝܡ ܥܕܬܐ
40 And he journeyed in Suria {Syria}, and in Qiliqia {Cilicia}, and established The Edatha {The Assemblies}.

Chapter 16
ܘܡܛܝ ܗܘܐ ܠܕܪܒܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܠܠܘܣܛܪܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܛܝܡܬܐܘܣ ܒܪܗ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܬܐ ܘܐܒܘܗܝ ܐܪܡܝܐ ܗܘܐ
1 And he had come unto Derbe city, and unto Lustra {Lystra}. Then, there was there a certain Talmiyda {Disciple}, whose name was Timatheus {Timothy}, the son of a certain Yehudaytha {Judean woman/a Jewess}, a Believer, and his father was an Armaya {an Aramean}.

ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܡܢ ܠܘܣܛܪܐ ܘܡܢ ܐܝܩܢܘܢ ܡܣܗܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ
2 And all The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students} who were from Lustra {Lystra} and from Eyqanun {Iconium} was testifying concerning him.

ܠܗܢܐ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܢܕܒܪܝܘܗܝ ܥܡܗ ܘܢܣܒ ܓܙܪܗ ܡܛܠ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܒܐܬܪܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܕܐܪܡܝܐ ܗܘܐ
3 This one, Paulus {Paul} desired to take with him, and he took him, and circumcised him, because of the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} who were there in the region, for, they all knew that his father was an Armaya {an Aramean}.

ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܡܟܪܙܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܠܦܝܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܢܛܪܝܢ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܟܬܒܘ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ
4 And while they were going among the cities, they were Proclaiming, and Teaching unto them that they should be observing those Commands which The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones} and The Qashishe {The Elders} who were in Urishlem {Jerusalem}, had written.

ܒܪܡ ܥܕܬܐ ܡܬܩܝܡܢ ܗܘܝ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܣܓܝܢ ܗܘܝ ܒܡܢܝܢܐ ܟܠܝܘܡ
5 Also, The Edatha {The Assemblies} were established in The Haymanutha {The Faith}, and were increasing in number daily.

ܗܠܟܘ ܕܝܢ ܒܦܪܘܓܝܐ ܘܒܓܠܛܝܐ ܐܬܪܘܬܐ ܘܟܠܬ ܐܢܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܡܠܠܘܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܐܣܝܐ
6 Then, they proceeded in the regions of Phrugia {Phrygia} and in Galatia, and The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness} held them back, so that they shouldn’t speak The Miltha d’Alaha {The Word of God} in Asia {i.e. Asia-Minor}.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܠܡܘܣܝܐ ܐܬܪܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܠܒܝܬܘܢܝܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܦܣܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܪܘܚܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ
7 And when they had come unto the region of Musia {Mysia}, they were desiring that they should go from there, unto Bithunia {Bithynia}, and The Rukheh d’Eshu {The Spirit of Y’shu} didn’t permit them to.

ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩܘ ܡܢ ܡܘܣܝܐ ܐܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܛܪܘܐܘܣ ܐܬܪܐ
8 And after they had gone out from Musia {Mysia}, they came unto the region of Truaus {Troas}.

ܘܒܚܙܘܐ ܕܠܠܝܐ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܐܝܟ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܕܩܐܡ ܘܒܥܐ ܡܢܗ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܕܬܐ ܠܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܘܥܕܪܝܢܝ
9 And in a vision of the night, Paulus {Paul} saw a certain gabra {man}; a Maqedunia {a Macedonian}, who stood and sought from him, while saying, “Come unto Maqedunia {Macedonia}, and help me!”

ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܚܙܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܗܢܐ ܚܙܘܐ ܡܚܕܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܠܡܦܩ ܠܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܣܬܟܠܢ ܕܡܪܢ ܩܪܢ ܕܢܣܒܪ ܐܢܘܢ
10 Then, when Paulus {Paul} had seen this vision, he at once desired to go forth unto Maqedunia {Macedonia}, on account that he understood that Maran {Our Lord} had called us, so that we should declare The Hope unto them.

ܘܪܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܛܪܘܐܘܣ ܘܬܪܨܢ ܠܣܡܘܬܪܩܐ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܢܐܦܘܠܝܣ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
11 And we journeyed from Truaus {Troas}, and straight unto Samathraqi {Samothracia}, and from there, the day after, we came unto Neapulis {Neapolis} city.

ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܕܗܝ ܗܝ ܪܫܐ ܕܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܘܐܝܬܝܗ ܩܘܠܘܢܝܐ ܗܘܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܗ ܒܗܕܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܝܕܝܥܐ
12 And from there, unto Philipus {Philippi}, which is the chief city of Maqedunia {Macedonia}, and is a colony. Then we were in that city certain days.

ܘܢܦܩܢ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܫܒܬܐ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܢܗܪܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܬܡܢ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܝܬ ܨܠܘܬܐ ܘܟܕ ܝܬܒܢ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܥܡ ܢܫܐ ܕܟܢܝܫܢ ܗܘܝ ܬܡܢ
13 And we went forth on the day of The Shabtha {The Sabbath}, outside from the gate of the city, on the side of the river, on account that there was seen a Beth Tslutha {a Prayer House}. And after we were seated, we were speaking with the women who were gathered there.

ܘܐܢܬܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܡܙܒܢܬ ܐܪܓܘܢܐ ܕܕܚܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܕܝܐ ܡܢ ܬܐܘܛܝܪܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܗܕܐ ܦܬܚ ܠܒܗ ܡܪܢ ܘܫܡܥܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ
14 And a certain woman, a seller of Arguna {Purple i.e. purple dyes or purple garments}, who revered Alaha {God}, her name being Ludia {Lydia}, from Theuatira {Thyatira} city. This one’s heart Maran {Our Lord} opened, and she listened to the thing which Paulus {Paul} was speaking.

ܘܥܡܕܬ ܗܘܬ ܗܝ ܘܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ ܘܒܥܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܢܢ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܕܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܬܟܝܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܬ ܒܡܪܢ ܬܘ ܫܪܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܒܝܬܝ ܘܣܓܝ ܐܠܨܬܢ
15 And she was Immersed {Baptized}; she and the sons of her house. And she was seeking from us, and said, “If it is that you are truly confident that I have believed in Maran {Our Lord}, come, lodge in my house.” And she greatly urged us.

ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܐܙܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܒܝܬ ܨܠܘܬܐ ܦܓܥܬ ܒܢ ܥܠܝܡܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܠܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܨܡܐ ܘܥܒܕܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܡܪܝܗ ܬܐܓܘܪܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܒܩܨܡܐ ܕܩܨܡܐ ܗܘܬ
16 And it happened, that when we went unto The Beth Tslutha {The Prayer House}, a certain young girl met us, in whom there was a spirit of divination. And she had performed for her lords/masters much business by her divining of divination.

ܘܐܬܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܬܪ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܒܬܪܢ ܘܩܥܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܪܝܡܐ ܘܡܣܒܪܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܚܝܐ
17 And she came behind Paulus {Paul}, and behind us, and cried out, and said, “These men, they are The Servants of Alaha {God} the Highest, and they are declaring The Way of Life unto you!”

ܘܗܟܢܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܗܘܬ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܐܬܬܦܝܪ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܠܪܘܚܐ ܗܝ ܦܩܕ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܝ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܬܦܩܝܢ ܡܢܗ ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܢܦܩܬ
18 And thus she had done many days. And Paulus {Paul} became angry, and said unto that spirit, “I command you in The Name of Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}, that you come out from her!” And at that moment it came out.

ܘܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܡܪܝܗ ܕܢܦܩ ܠܗ ܡܢܗ ܣܒܪܐ ܕܬܐܓܘܪܬܗܘܢ ܐܚܕܘܗܝ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܠܫܝܠܐ ܘܢܓܕܘ ܐܝܬܝܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܫܘܩܐ
19 And when her lords/masters had seen that the hope of their business had been cast out from her, they held fast to Paulus {Paul} and to Shiyla {Silas}, and they beat them, bringing them to the marketplace,

ܘܩܪܒܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐܣܛܪܛܓܐ ܘܠܪܫܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܕܠܚܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ
20 and they brought them near unto the Prefects, and unto the Chiefs of the city, and they were saying, “These men are troubling our city, on account that they are Yehudaye {Judeans/Jews},

ܘܡܟܪܙܝܢ ܠܢ ܥܝܕܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܦܣ ܠܢ ܠܡܩܒܠܘ ܘܠܡܥܒܕ ܡܛܠ ܕܪܗܘܡܝܐ ܚܢܢ
21 and are Proclaiming unto us those customs which are not permitted for us to accept, and to do, on account that we are Ruhmaye {Romans}.”

ܘܟܢܫܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܣܛܪܛܓܐ ܣܕܩܘ ܢܚܬܝܗܘܢ ܘܦܩܕܘ ܕܢܢܓܕܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ
22 And a great crowd gathered against them. Then, the Prefects tore off their garments and they commanded that they should be beaten.

ܘܟܕ ܢܓܕܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܣܓܝ ܐܪܡܝܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܘܦܩܕܘ ܠܢܛܪ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܕܢܛܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܙܗܝܪܐܝܬ
23 And after they had beaten them greatly, they cast them in the prisoner’s house, and commanded the guards of the prisoner’s house that they should guard them securely.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܩܒܠ ܗܢܐ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܐܥܠ ܚܒܫ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܒܝܬܐ ܓܘܝܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܘܐܣܪ ܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܒܣܕܐ
24 Then he, after he received this command, brought them confined into the inner house of the prisoner’s house, and bound their feet in shackles.

ܘܒܦܠܓܗ ܕܠܠܝܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܫܝܠܐ ܡܨܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܫܒܚܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܣܝܪܐ
25 And in the middle of the night, Paulus {Paul} and Shiyla {Silas} were praying, and giving praise unto Alaha {God}, and the prisoners were listening to them.

ܘܡܢ ܫܠܝܐ ܙܘܥܐ ܪܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܐܬܬܙܝܥ ܫܬܐܣܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܘܐܬܦܬܚܘ ܡܚܕܐ ܬܪܥܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܣܘܪܝܗܘܢ ܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܫܬܪܝܘ
26 And suddenly {lit. from the calm} there was a great earthquake, and it shook the foundation of the prisoner’s house, and at once all the doors were opened, and the bonds of all were loosened.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܬܥܝܪ ܢܛܪ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܘܚܙܐ ܕܦܬܝܚܝܢ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܢܣܒ ܣܦܣܪܐ ܘܒܥܐ ܕܢܩܛܘܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܡܛܠ ܕܣܒܪ ܗܘܐ ܕܥܪܩܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܣܝܪܐ
27 And when the guard of the prisoner’s house awoke, and saw that the doors of the prisoner’s house were opened, he took a sword and sought that he should kill his soul {himself}, on account that he had supposed that the captives had fled.

ܘܩܪܝܗܝ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܬܥܒܕ ܠܢܦܫܟ ܡܕܡ ܕܒܝܫ ܡܛܠ ܕܟܠܢ ܗܪܟܐ ܚܢܢ
28 And Paulus {Paul} cried out in a loud voice, and said unto him, “Do not do to yourself something which is evil, on account that we are all here!”

ܘܐܢܗܪ ܠܗ ܫܪܓܐ ܘܫܘܪ ܘܥܠ ܟܕ ܪܐܬ ܘܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܕܫܝܠܐ
29 And he lit a lamp for himself, and leaped up, and entered while trembling, and fell at the feet of Paulus {Paul} and of Shiyla {Silas}.

ܘܐܦܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܒܪ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܪܝ ܡܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܠܝ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܚܐ
30 And he brought them outside, and said unto them, “My lords, what is proper for me to do, so as that I might Live?”

ܘܗܢܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܗܝܡܢ ܒܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܬܚܐ ܐܢܬ ܘܒܝܬܟ
31 And they were saying unto him, “Believe in Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}, and you will Live; you and your house!”

ܘܡܠܠܘ ܥܡܗ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܥܡ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ
32 And they were speaking The Miltha d’MarYa {The Word of The Lord-YHWH} with him, and with all the sons of his house.

ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܒܗ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܕܒܪ ܐܣܚܝ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢ ܢܓܕܗܘܢ ܘܒܪܫܥܬܗ ܥܡܕ ܗܘ ܘܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ
33 And at that moment, in that night, he took them to wash them from their wounds, and immediately {lit. in the son of an hour} he was Immersed {Baptized}, and all the sons of his house.

ܘܕܒܪ ܐܣܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܘܣܡ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܬܘܪܐ ܘܪܘܙ ܗܘܐ ܗܘ ܘܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
34 And he led them up unto his house, and set the table for them. And he rejoiced in The Haymanutha d’Alaha {The Faith of God}, he and the sons of his house.

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܨܦܪܐ ܫܕܪܘ ܐܣܛܪܛܓܐ ܠܫܩܠܝ ܫܒܛܐ ܕܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܪܒ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܫܪܝ ܠܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ
35 And when it was morning, the Prefects sent the staff-bearers, so that they should say unto the Chief of the captives, “Loose those men.”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܪܒ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܥܠ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܫܕܪܘ ܐܣܛܪܛܓܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܬܫܬܪܘܢ ܘܗܫܐ ܦܘܩܘ ܙܠܘ ܒܫܠܡܐ
36 And when the Chief of the prisoner’s house heard it, he entered and spoke unto Paulus {Paul} this word: “The Prefects have sent, so that you should be loosed. And now go out; depart in Shlama {Peace}!”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܠܐ ܣܟܠܘ ܢܓܕܘܢ ܠܥܝܢ ܥܠܡܐ ܟܠܗ ܠܐܢܫܐ ܪܗܘܡܝܐ ܘܐܪܡܝܘܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܘܗܫܐ ܡܛܫܝܐܝܬ ܡܦܩܝܢ ܠܢ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܠܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܢܐܬܘܢ ܢܦܩܘܢܢ
37 Paulus {Paul} said unto him, “Without wrongdoing they have beaten us, Ruhmaya gabre {Roman men}, before the eyes of all the world! And they threw us in the prisoner’s house, and now, secretly, they send us out? Not so! But rather, they will come to bring us out!”

ܘܐܙܠܘ ܫܩܠܝ ܫܒܛܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܐܣܛܪܛܓܐ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܕܪܗܘܡܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܚܠܘ
38 And the staff-bearers departed, and they spoke unto the Prefects these words which were told unto them. And when they heard that they were Ruhmaye {Romans}, they feared.

ܘܐܬܘ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܒܥܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܢܦܩܘܢ ܘܢܫܢܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
39 And they came towards them and sought from them that they should go out and to depart from the city.

ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩܘ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܥܠܘ ܠܘܬ ܠܘܕܝܐ ܘܚܙܘ ܬܡܢ ܠܐܚܐ ܘܒܝܐܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܢܦܩܘ
40 And when they had gone forth from the prisoner’s house, they entered into a place with Ludia {Lydia}, and saw The Brothers there, and they comforted them, and they went forth.

1 And they passed by Amphipulis {Amphipolis} and Apalunia {Apollonia} cities, and they came unto Thesaluniqi {Thessalonica}, where there was a Kenushtha d’Yehudaye {a Synagogue of Judeans/the Jews}.

ܘܥܠ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܡܥܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܫܒܐ ܬܠܬ ܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܟܬܒܐ
2 And Paulus {Paul} went in unto them, as was his custom, and for three Shabe {Sabbaths} was speaking with them from The Kathabe {The Scriptures},

3 where he was explaining and was showing that Meshikha {The Anointed One} had been destined that He should suffer, and that He should rise from the place of the dead, that is to say, Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}, this One whom I am Declaring unto you.

ܘܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܘܢܩܦܘ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܠܫܝܠܐ ܘܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܝܘܢܝܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܚܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܦ ܢܫܐ ܝܕܝܥܬܐ ܠܐ ܙܥܘܪܝܢ
4 And men from them believed, and they joined Paulus {Paul} and Shiyla {Silas}, and many from the Yawnaye {the Greeks}; those who were revering Alaha {God}; and not a few were also
well-known women.

ܘܚܣܡܘ ܗܘܘ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܐܩܦܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܡܢ ܫܘܩܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܥܒܕܘ ܐܟܠܘܣ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܕܠܚܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܘܩܡܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܠ ܒܝܬܗ ܕܐܝܣܘܢ ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܢܦܩܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܘܢܫܠܡܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐܟܠܘܣ
5 And the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} were envious, and they joined together evil men from the marketplace of the city, and they formed a great crowd, and they were troubling the city. And they came and stood against the house of Iyasun {Jason}, and they were seeking to bring them out from there and deliver them unto the crowd.

ܘܟܕ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܬܡܢ ܓܪܘܗܝ ܗܘܘ ܠܐܝܣܘܢ ܘܠܐܚܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܘܐܝܬܝܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܪܫܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܟܕ ܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܠܟܠܗ ܐܪܥܐ ܕܠܚܘ ܘܗܐ ܬܘܒ ܠܗܪܟܐ ܐܬܘ
6 And when they didn’t find them there, they dragged Iyasun {Jason} and The Brothers who were there, and brought them unto the Chiefs of the city, where they were crying out, “These are they who have been troubling the whole land, and look! They have furthermore come here!

ܘܡܩܒܠܢܗܘܢ ܗܢܘ ܐܝܣܘܢ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܦܘܩܕܢܘܗܝ ܕܩܣܪ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ
7 And their host is this Iyasun {Jason}! And all these are standing opposed to the commands of Qasar {Caesar i.e. the Emperor}, while they are saying that there is another Malka {King}; Eshu {Y’shu}!”

ܐܬܕܠܚܘ ܕܝܢ ܪܫܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܗܠܝܢ
8 Then when the Rishe {the Chiefs/the Leaders} of the city, and all the Ama {the People} heard these things, they were troubled.

ܘܢܣܒܘ ܥܪܒܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܣܘܢ ܘܐܦ ܡܢ ܐܚܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ
9 And they received pledges from Iyasun {Jason}, and also from The Brothers, and then they loosed them.

ܐܚܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܒܗ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܫܪܘ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܠܫܝܠܐ ܠܒܪܘܐܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܠܬܡܢ ܥܐܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ
10 Then, The Brothers, at once {lit. in the son of an hour}, in that night, dismissed Paulus {Paul} and Shiyla {Silas} unto Berua {Berea} city. And when they came unto there, they entered into The Kenushtha d’Yehudaye {The Synagogue of the Judeans/the Jews},

ܚܐܪܐܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܗܢܘܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܬܡܢ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܒܬܣܠܘܢܝܩܐ ܘܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܟܠܝܘܡ ܚܕܝܐܝܬ ܟܕ ܡܦܪܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܐܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܝܢ
11 for, those Yehudaye {Judeans/Jews} who were there, were nobler than the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} who were in Thesaluniqi {Thessalonica}. And they were hearing The Miltha {The Word} from them every day, gladly, while they were discerning, from The Kathabe {The Scriptures}, if these things were thus so.

ܘܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܘܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܡܢ ܝܘܢܝܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܢܫܐ ܝܕܝܥܬܐ
12 And many from them believed, and thus, also from the Yawnaye {the Greeks}, many gabre {men}, and many notable neshe {women}.

ܘܟܕ ܝܕܥܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܡܢ ܬܣܠܘܢܝܩܐ ܕܡܠܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܟܪܙܬ ܡܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܒܒܪܘܐܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܬܘ ܐܦ ܠܬܡܢ ܘܠܐ ܫܠܝܘ ܠܡܙܥܘ ܘܠܡܕܠܚܘ ܠܐܢܫܘܬܐ
13 And when the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews}, those who were from Thesaluniqi {Thessalonica} knew that The Miltheh d’Alaha {The Word of God} had been Proclaimed from Paulus {Paul} in Berua {Berea} city, they also came unto there, and didn’t cease being troubling and agitating to men.

ܘܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܫܪܐܘܗܝ ܐܚܐ ܕܢܚܘܬ ܠܗ ܠܝܡܐ ܘܩܘܝܘ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܗܝ ܫܝܠܐ ܘܛܝܡܬܐܘܣ
14 And The Brothers removed Paulus {Paul}, so that he should go down unto the sea, and Shiyla {Silas} and Timatheus {Timothy} remained in the city.

ܘܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܬܠܘܝܘ ܠܗ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܐܬܘ ܥܡܗ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܐܬܢܘܣ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩܝܢ ܡܢ ܨܐܕܘܗܝ ܩܒܠܘ ܡܢܗ ܐܓܪܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܫܝܠܐ ܘܛܝܡܬܐܘܣ ܕܒܥܓܠ ܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܠܘܬܗ
15 And those who escorted for him, for Paulus {Paul}, went with him as far as Athinus {Athens} city. And when they went forth from being with him, they received from him a letter to Shiyla {Silas} and Timatheus {Timothy}, that they should quickly go unto him.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܟܕ ܡܩܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܐܬܢܘܣ ܡܬܡܪܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܒܪܘܚܗ ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܟܠܗ ܡܠܝܐ ܦܬܟܪܐ
16 Then he, Paulus {Paul}, while he waited in Athinus {Athens}, became grieved in rukheh {his spirit}, when he had seen that the entire city was full of idols.

ܘܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܥܡ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܥܡ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܚܠܝܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܫܘܩܐ ܥܡ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܣܬܩܒܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܝܘܡ
17 And he spoke in The Kenushtha {The Synagogue} with the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews}, and with those who were revering Alaha {God}, and in the marketplace with those who were coming there every day,

ܘܐܦ ܦܝܠܣܘܦܐ ܕܡܢ ܝܘܠܦܢܗ ܕܐܦܝܩܘܪܘܣ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܢ ܐܣܛܘܐܝܩܘ ܕܪܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗ ܘܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܐ ܨܒܐ ܗܢܐ ܡܠܩܛ ܡܠܐ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܢܘܟܪܝܐ ܡܟܪܙ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܝܫܘܥ ܘܠܩܝܡܬܗ ܡܟܪܙ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ
18 and also the Pilasupe {the Philosophers} who were from the teaching of Epiqurus {Epicurus}, and others who were called Stuiqu {Stoics}, were debating with him. And certain men from them were saying, “What does this babbler {lit. word gatherer} want?” And others were saying “He is Proclaiming strange deities,” (on account that he was Proclaiming Eshu {Y’shu} and His Resurrection unto them).

ܘܐܚܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܠܒܝܬ ܕܝܢܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܐܪܝܘܣ ܦܓܘܣ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܡܕܥ ܡܢܘ ܗܢܐ ܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܕܡܟܪܙ ܐܢܬ
19 And they took him and they brought him unto The House of Judgment, which is called The Arius-Pagus {The Areopagus}, where they said unto him, “Are we able to know what this new teaching is, which you are Proclaiming?

ܡܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܢܘܟܪܝܬܐ ܙܪܥ ܐܢܬ ܒܡܫܡܥܬܢ ܘܨܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܡܕܥ ܡܢܐ ܐܢܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ
20 For, you sow strange words in our hearing, and we are desiring to know what these things are.”

ܐܬܢܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܝܢ ܠܬܡܢ ܢܘܟܪܝܐ ܥܠ ܡܕܡ ܐܚܪܝܢ ܠܐ ܒܛܝܠ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܘܠܡܫܡܥ ܡܕܡ ܚܕܬ
21 Now, all the Athinaye {Athenians}, and those foreigners who were coming there, concerning another thing they didn’t care for, except to speak and to hear something new.

ܘܟܕ ܩܡ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܒܐܪܝܘܣ ܦܓܘܣ ܐܡܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܬܢܝܐ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܒܟܠܗܝܢ ܝܬܝܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܕܚܠܬ ܫܐܕܐ
22 And as Paulus {Paul} stood in The Arius-Pagus {The Areopagus}, he said, “Men, Athinaye {Athenians}, I see that for you all there is excessive reverence of shide {demons}.

ܟܕ ܓܝܪ ܡܬܟܪܟ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܚܙܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܒܝܬ ܕܚܠܬܟܘܢ ܐܫܟܚܬ ܥܠܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܠܝܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܓܢܝܙܐ ܗܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܟܕ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܚܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ ܠܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܣܒܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ
23 For, while I was going around, and had seen the places of your reverence, I found a certain altar upon which was written: “The Altar of the unknown Alaha {God}.” That One, therefore, that while you do not know, you revere; this One I am Declaring unto you!

ܐܠܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܥܒܕ ܥܠܡܐ ܘܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܘܗܘܝܘ ܡܪܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܘܕܐܪܥܐ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܝܕܝܐ ܠܐ ܫܪܐ
24 For, Alaha {God}, who made the world, and all which is in it, and He, The Mara d’Shmaya {The Lord of the Heavens} and of the Ara {the Earth}, He does not dwell in temples which are made by hands.

ܘܠܐ ܡܫܬܡܫ ܡܢ ܐܝܕܝ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܘܥܠ ܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܣܢܝܩ ܡܛܠ ܕܗܘ ܝܗܒ ܠܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܚܝܐ ܘܢܦܫܐ
25 And neither is He served from the hands of the sons of men; and concerning Him not a thing is needed, on account that He has given unto every man, life and a soul.

ܘܡܢ ܚܕ ܕܡ ܥܒܕ ܥܠܡܐ ܟܠܗ ܕܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܥܡܪܝܢ ܥܠ ܐܦܝ ܐܪܥܐ ܟܠܗ ܘܦܪܫ ܙܒܢܐ ܒܦܘܩܕܢܗ ܘܣܡ ܬܚܘܡܐ ܕܥܘܡܪܐ ܕܒܢܝܢܫܐ
26 And from one blood He made the whole world of the sons of men, so that they should be dwelling upon the face of all the Earth. And He has distinguished the seasons by His command, and placed the boundaries of the habitation of the sons of men,

ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܒܥܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܡܥܩܒܝܢ ܘܡܢ ܒܪܝܬܗ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܦ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܪܚܝܩ ܡܢ ܟܠ ܡܢܢ
27 so that they should be seeking and looking for Alaha {God}, and from the creation, might find Him, for, on account that even He isn’t entirely distant from us.

ܒܗ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܚܝܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܡܬܬܙܝܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܐܝܬܝܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܦ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܚܟܝܡܐ ܕܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܕܡܢܗ ܗܘ ܛܘܗܡܢ
28 For, ‘In Him we are living, and we are moving, and we exist,’ as which also wise men from you have said, ‘From Him is our lineage.’

ܐܢܫܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܛܘܗܡܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܚܝܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܡܣܒܪ ܕܠܕܗܒܐ ܐܘ ܠܣܐܡܐ ܐܘ ܠܟܐܦܐ ܕܓܠܝܦܐ ܒܐܘܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܒܝܕܥܬܐ ܕܒܪܢܫܐ ܕܡܝܐ ܐܠܗܘܬܐ
29 Therefore, men, whose lineage is from Alaha {God}, we shouldn’t be guilty for hoping that gold, or silver, or stone which is carved by the skill and by the knowledge of a son of man, that it is comparable unto The Alahutha {The Divinity}.

ܙܒܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܛܥܝܘܬܐ ܐܥܒܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܙܒܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܡܦܩܕ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܒܟܠ ܕܘܟܐ ܢܬܘܒ
30 For, Alaha {God} has caused the times for error to pass, and in this time His command unto all the sons of men is that every nash {man}, in every place, should repent,

ܡܛܠ ܕܐܩܝܡ ܝܘܡܐ ܕܒܗ ܥܬܝܕ ܕܢܕܘܢ ܐܪܥܐ ܟܠܗ ܒܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܒܝܕ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܦܪܫ ܘܐܦܢܝ ܠܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܠܗܝܡܢܘܬܗ ܒܕܐܩܝܡܗ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ
31 on account that He has established a Day, that in it He has destined that He should judge the whole Earth with righteousness, by means of The Man whom He has appointed, and has turned back every man unto Haymanutheh {His Faith}, by raising Him from the place of the dead.”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܩܝܡܬܐ ܕܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܡܝܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܙܒܢ ܐܚܪܝܢ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܟ ܥܠ ܗܕܐ
32 And when they heard of The Resurrection from the place of the dead, some from them were mocking, and some from them were saying, “We will hear you concerning this, another time.”

ܘܗܟܢܐ ܢܦܩ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܡܢ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ
33 And thus, Paulus {Paul} went out from among them.

ܘܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܢܩܦܘܗܝ ܘܗܝܡܢܘ ܚܕ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢܘܣܝܘܣ ܡܢ ܕܝܢܐ ܕܐܪܝܘܣ ܦܓܘܣ ܘܐܢܬܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܕܡܪܝܣ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ
34 And men from them joined him, and they believed. Yet, one from them was Dianusius {Dionysius} of The Judges of The Arius-Pagus {The Areopagus}, and a certain woman whose name was Damaris, and others with them.

Chapter 18
ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܡܢ ܐܬܢܘܣ ܐܬܐ ܠܗ ܠܩܘܪܢܬܘܣ
1 And when Paulus {Paul} went out from Athinus {Athens}, he came unto Qurinthus {Corinth}.

ܘܐܫܟܚ ܬܡܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܩܠܘܣ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܦܘܢܛܘܣ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܒܗ ܒܗܘ ܙܒܢܐ ܐܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܐܝܛܠܝܐ ܗܘ ܘܦܪܝܣܩܠܐ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܡܛܠ ܕܦܩܕ ܗܘܐ ܩܠܘܕܝܘܣ ܩܣܪ ܕܢܦܩܘܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܡܢ ܪܗܘܡܐ ܘܐܬܩܪܒ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ
2 And he found there a certain man, a Yehudaya {a Judean/a Jew} whose name was Aqelus {Aquila}, who was from the Pantus {Pontus} region, who at that time had come from the region of Italia {Italy}; he and Prisqila {Priscilla}, his wife; on account that Qludius Qasar {Claudius Caesar} had commanded that all the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} should be cast out from Ruhume {Rome}. And he drew near unto them.

ܘܡܛܠ ܕܒܪ ܐܘܡܢܘܬܗܘܢ ܗܘܐ ܫܪܐ ܠܗ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܦܠܚ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܒܐܘܡܢܘܬܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܘܠܪܐ ܗܘܘ
3 And on account that he was a son of their craft, he lodged with them, and labored with them, for, in their craftsmanship they were harness makers {or possibly tent makers, lit. workers in rough cloth}.

ܘܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܒܟܠ ܫܒܐ ܘܡܦܝܣ ܗܘܐ ܠܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܠܚܢܦܐ
4 And he spoke in The Kenushtha {The Synagogue} on every Shaba {Sabbath}, and persuaded the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} and the Pagans.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܫܝܠܐ ܘܛܝܡܬܐܘܣ ܐܠܝܨ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܗܘ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܡܛܠ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܩܘܒܠܗ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܡܓܕܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܕ ܡܣܗܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܗܘܝܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ
5 And when Shiyla {Silas} and Timatheus {Timothy} had come from Maqedunia {Macedonia}, Paulus {Paul} was constrained in his speech, on account that there were Yehudaye {Judeans/Jews} standing to oppose him, and they were reviling while he was testifying unto them that Eshu {Y’shu}, the very same is Meshikha {The Anointed One}.

ܘܢܦܨ ܡܐܢܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܗܫܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܟܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܙܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܝ ܠܘܬ ܥܡܡܐ
6 And he shook off his garments, and said unto them, “From now on, I am clean. I go unto the Gentiles!”

ܘܢܦܩ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܘܥܠ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܛܛܘܣ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܕܚܠ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܝܬܗ ܢܩܝܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ
7 And he went out from there, and entered unto the house of a man whose name was Titus, who revered Alaha {God}. And his house was connected to The Kenushtha {The Synagogue}.

ܘܩܪܝܣܦܘܣ ܪܒ ܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܗܝܡܢ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܪܢ ܗܘ ܘܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܣܓܝܐܐ ܩܘܪܢܬܝܐ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܒܐܠܗܐ ܘܥܡܕܝܢ
8 And Qrispus, the Chief of The Kenushtha {The Synagogue}, became a believer in Maran {Our Lord}; he, and all the sons of his house. And many Qurintaye {Corinthians} heard of it, and they were believing in Alaha {God}, and were being Immersed {Baptized}.

ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠ ܐܠܐ ܡܠܠ ܘܠܐ ܬܫܬܘܩ
9 And MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} spoke in a vision unto Paulus {Paul}: “You should not fear! But rather, speak, and do not be silent,

ܡܛܠ ܕܐܢܐ ܥܡܟ ܐܢܐ ܘܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܗܪܘܬܟ ܘܥܡܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܗܕܐ
10 on account that I am with you, and a nash {man} isn’t able to harm you. And many Ama {People} are for Me in this city.”

ܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܫܢܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܘܝܪܚܐ ܫܬܐ ܒܩܘܪܢܬܘܣ ܘܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
11 Then, he dwelled one year and six months in Qurinthus {Corinth}, and taught The Miltha d’Alaha {The Word of God} unto them.

ܘܟܕ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܓܐܠܝܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܦܛܘܣ ܕܐܟܐܝܐ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܥܠ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܐܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܩܕܡ ܒܝܡ
12 And it happened, while Galiun {Gallio} was Proconsul of Akaia {Achaia}, the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} gathered together against Paulus {Paul}, and they brought him before The Judgment-Seat,

ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܗܢܐ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܡܦܝܣ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܕܚܠܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ
13 while they were saying: “This one, apart from The Namusa {The Law}, persuades the sons of men to revere Alaha {God}!”

ܘܟܕ ܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܢܦܬܚ ܦܘܡܗ ܘܢܡܠܠ ܐܡܪ ܓܐܠܝܘܢ ܠܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܠܘ ܥܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܒܝܫ ܐܘ ܕܢܟܝܠ ܐܘ ܕܣܢܐ ܡܩܛܪܓܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܐܘ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܒܘܠܝܬܐ ܡܩܒܠ ܗܘܬ ܠܟܘܢ
14 And while Paulus {Paul} sought that he should open his mouth and to speak, Galiun {Gallio} spoke unto the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews}, “If concerning a thing that is evil, or that is deceitful, or that is detestable, is your accusation, O Yehudaye {O Judeans/Jews}, I receive you appropriately,

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܙܐܛܡܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܥܠ ܡܠܬܐ ܘܥܠ ܫܡܗܐ ܘܥܠ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܝܢܬܟܘܢ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܗܘܐ ܕܝܢܐ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܨܒܘܬܐ
15 but, if they are accusations concerning words, and concerning names, and concerning your own Law; you determine it among you; for, I do not desire that I should be the judge of these matters.”

ܘܛܪܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢ ܒܝܡ ܕܝܠܗ
16 And he expelled them from his Judgment-Seat.

ܘܐܚܕܘ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܚܢܦܐ ܠܣܘܣܬܢܝܣ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܡܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܩܕܡ ܒܝܡ ܘܓܐܠܝܘܢ ܡܗܡܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܗܠܝܢ
17 And all the Pagans took hold of Susthenis {Sosthenes}, the Qashisha {the Elder} of The Kenushtha {The Synagogue}, and they were beating him before The Judgment-Seat, and Galiun {Gallio} was disregarding in these things.

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܬܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܝܗܒ ܫܠܡܐ ܠܐܚܐ ܘܪܕܐ ܒܝܡܐ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܠܣܘܪܝܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܥܡܗ ܦܪܝܣܩܠܐ ܘܐܩܠܘܣ ܟܕ ܣܦܪ ܪܫܗ ܒܩܢܟܪܐܘܣ ܡܛܠ ܕܢܕܪܐ ܢܕܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ
18 And after Paulus {Paul} was there many days, he gave Shlama {Peace i.e. a blessing of well being} unto The Brothers, and journeyed by sea, so that he should go unto Suriya {Syria}; and he brought Prisqila {Priscilla} and Aqelus {Aquila} with him, after he had shaved his head at Qenkreus {Cenchrea}, on account of the vow which he had vowed for himself.

ܘܡܛܝܘ ܠܐܦܣܘܣ ܘܥܠ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ
19 And they arrived unto Ephesus, and Paulus {Paul} entered unto The Kenushtha {The Synagogue}, and was speaking with the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews}.

ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗ ܕܢܓܪ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܐܬܛܦܝܣ
20 And they were seeking from him that he should remain a long time with them, and he wasn’t persuaded,

ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܕܘܠܐ ܠܝ ܐܡܝܢܐܝܬ ܕܥܐܕܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܐܥܒܕܝܘܗܝ ܘܐܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܢܨܒܐ ܐܦܢܐ ܬܘܒ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܘܠܐܩܠܘܣ ܘܠܦܪܝܣܩܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܐܦܣܘܣ
21 while he said, “It is proper for me that I always perform The Iada {The Festival}, which is coming at Urishlem {Jerusalem}. And if Alaha {God} wills, I will return again unto you.” And Aqelus {Aquila} and Prisqila {Priscilla}; they were left in Ephesus.

ܘܗܘ ܪܕܐ ܒܝܡܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܩܣܪܝܐ ܘܣܠܩ ܘܫܐܠ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܕܒܢܝ ܥܕܬܐ ܘܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܠܐܢܛܝܘܟܝ
22 And he journeyed by sea, and came unto Qasariya {Caesarea}, and went up and asked with regard to the Shlama {i.e. the well-being} of the sons of The Edtha {The Assembly}, and departed for Antiuki {Antioch}.

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܝܕܝܥܐ ܢܦܩ ܘܐܬܟܪܟ ܒܬܪ ܒܬܪ ܒܐܬܪܐ ܕܦܪܘܓܝܐ ܘܕܓܠܛܝܐ ܟܕ ܡܩܝܡ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ
23 And after he was there specific days, he went out and went around successively in the region of Phrugia {Phrygia} and of Galatia {Galatia}, where he established all The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students}.

ܘܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܦܠܘ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܛܘܗܡܗ ܡܢ ܐܠܟܣܢܕܪܝܐ ܘܪܕܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܘܡܕܩ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܐܦܣܘܣ
24 And a certain man whose name was Apalu {Apollos}, a Yehudaya {a Judean/a Jew} who was of the clan from Aleksandria {Alexandria}, and was fluent in speech, and well versed in The Kathabe {The Scriptures}; came unto Ephesus.

ܗܢܐ ܡܬܠܡܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܘܪܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܪܬܚ ܗܘܐ ܒܪܘܚ ܘܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܠܦ ܡܠܝܐܝܬ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܟܕ ܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ
25 This one had joined unto The Way of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, and was fervent in spirit, and was speaking and teaching strongly about Eshu {Y’shu}, while he wasn’t knowing a thing, except only The Immersion {The Baptism} of Yukhanan {John}.

26 And he began speaking boldly {lit. with an open eye} in The Kenushtha {The Synagogue}. And when Aqelus {Aquila} and Prisqila {Priscilla} heard him, they brought him to their home, and fully showed him The Way of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}.

ܘܟܕ ܨܒܐ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܠܐܟܐܝܐ ܚܦܛܘܗܝ ܐܚܐ ܘܟܬܒܘ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܢܩܒܠܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠ ܥܕܪ ܣܓܝ ܒܝܕ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ
27 And when he desired that he should go unto Akaia {Achaia}, The Brothers urged him on, and they wrote unto The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students} that they should receive him. And while he went, he had aided much, by means of Taybutha {Grace}, all The Believers,

ܬܩܝܦܐܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܕܪܫ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܩܕܡ ܟܢܫܐ ܟܕ ܡܚܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܟܬܒܐ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܘ
28 for, he mightily debated against the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} in front of {lit. before} their gatherings, while showing from The Kathabe {The Scriptures} about Eshu {Y’shu}, that He is Meshikha {The Anointed One}.

Chapter 19
ܘܟܕ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܐܦܠܘ ܒܩܘܪܢܬܘܣ ܐܬܟܪܟ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܒܐܬܪܘܬܐ ܥܠܝܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܐܦܣܘܣ ܘܡܫܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܫܟܚ ܬܡܢ
1 And it was while Apalu {Apollos} was in Qurinthus {Corinth}, Paulus {Paul} went around in the upper regions, and came unto Ephesus, and asked The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students} whom he had found there,

ܕܐܢ ܩܒܠܬܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܡܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܬܘܢ ܥܢܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܘܐܦ ܠܐ ܐܢ ܐܝܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܫܡܝܥ ܠܢ
2 if they had received The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness} from after they had believed? They responded, and said unto him, “And even if there is a Rukha d’Qudsha {a Spirit of Holiness}, it hasn’t been announced unto us.”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܒܡܢܐ ܥܡܕܬܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܒܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܗ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ
3 He said unto them, “And into what were you Immersed {Baptized}?” They were saying, “Into The Immersion {The Baptism} of Yukhanan {John}.”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܥܡܕ ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܠܥܡܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܗܝܡܢܘܢ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܒܬܪܗ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
4 Paulus {Paul} said unto them, “Yukhanan {John} Immersed {Baptized} for the Ama {the People}, The Immersion {The Baptism} of Repentance, while saying that they should believe in The One who was coming after him, that is, Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}.”

ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܫܡܥܘ ܥܡܕܘ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
5 And when they heard these things , they were Immersed {Baptized} in The Name of Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

ܘܣܡ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܐܬܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܠܫܢ ܠܫܢ ܘܡܬܢܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ
6 And Paulus {Paul} placed The Hand on them, and The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness} came upon them, and they were speaking in certain languages, and were prophesying,

ܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܬܪܥܣܪ
7 yet, it so happened, there was twelve men in all.

ܘܥܠ ܗܘܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܝܪܚܐ ܬܠܬܐ ܘܡܦܝܣ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
8 And Paulus {Paul} entered unto The Kenushtha {The Synagogue}, and spoke with boldness {lit. an open eye} three months, and was persuasive concerning The Malkutheh d’Alaha {The Kingdom of God}.

ܘܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܬܩܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܬܚܪܝܢ ܘܡܨܚܝܢ ܠܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܩܕܡ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܪܚܩ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܦܪܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܟܠܝܘܡ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܒܐܣܟܘܠܐ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܛܘܪܢܘܣ
9 And men from them were hardened, and were arguing, and were mocking The Way of Alaha {God} before the gathering of the Amme {the Peoples}. Then, Paulus {Paul} departed, and separated The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students} from them, and everyday he was speaking with them at the School of a man whose name was Turanus {Tyrannus}.

ܘܗܕܐ ܗܘܬ ܫܢܝܢ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܐܣܝܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܐܪܡܝܐ
10 And this continued two years, until all those who were dwelling in Asia {i.e. Asia-Minor} heard The Miltha d’MarYa {The Word of The Lord-YHWH}; Yehudaye {Judeans/Jews}, and Armaye {Arameans}.

ܘܚܝܠܐ ܪܘܪܒܐ ܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܕܦܘܠܘܣ
11 And Alaha {God} performed great miracles by The Hand of Paulus {Paul},

ܗܟܢܐ ܕܐܦ ܡܢ ܢܚܬܐ ܕܥܠ ܓܘܫܡܗ ܣܘܕܪܐ ܐܘ ܪܘܩܥܐ ܡܝܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܣܝܡܝܢ ܥܠ ܟܪܝܗܐ ܘܦܪܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܟܘܪܗܢܐ ܘܐܦ ܫܐܕܐ ܢܦܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ
12 thus so, that even from his garments which were upon his body, they were bringing cloth, or pieces of cloth, and placing them upon the sick, and the sicknesses departed from them, and also the shide {the demons} were cast out!

ܨܒܘ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܫܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܬܟܪܟܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܘܡܝܢ ܥܠ ܫܐܕܐ ܕܢܘܡܘܢ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܠ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܘܡܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܡܟܪܙ ܦܘܠܘܣ
13 Then, it was also that there were Yehudaye {Judeans/Jews} who desired that they might go around and abjure {i.e. swear off} concerning the shide {the demons}, so that they might abjure {swear them off} in The Name of Maran Eshu {Our Lord Y’shu} concerning those unto whom were unclean spirits, while they were saying, “We adjure you in The Name of Eshu {Y’shu}, whom Paulus {Paul} proclaims!”

ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܫܒܥܐ ܒܢܘܗܝ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܣܩܘܐ ܕܥܒܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܗܕܐ
14 that is to say, there were seven sons of a certain gabra {man}, a Yehudaya {a Judean/a Jew}; a Rab Kahne {a Chief of the Priests} whose name was Sqeua {Sceva}, who were doing this.

ܘܥܢܐ ܫܐܕܐ ܗܘ ܒܝܫܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܬܘܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܘܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
15 And the shida {the demon}, that evil one, answered, and said unto them, “Eshu {Y’shu} I am informed about, and Paulus {Paul} I know; but you, who are you?”

ܘܫܘܪ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܘܐܬܚܝܠ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܫܦܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܟܕ ܫܠܝܚܝܢ ܘܦܥܝܥܝܢ ܥܪܩܘ ܡܢ ܒܝܬܐ ܗܘ
16 And the gabra {the man} in whom there was the evil spirit, jumped upon them, and prevailed against them, and overcame them. And while they were naked and wounded, they fled from that one’s house!

ܘܗܕܐ ܐܬܝܕܥܬ ܗܘܬ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܐܪܡܝܐ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܐܦܣܘܣ ܘܢܦܠܬ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܥܠ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܡܬܪܡܪܡ ܗܘܐ ܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
17 And this became known unto all the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} and the Armaye {the Arameans} who were dwelling in Ephesus. And awe fell upon all, and The Name of Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One} was exalted.

ܘܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܐܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܫܬܥܝܢ ܣܟܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܡܘܕܝܢ ܒܡܕܡ ܕܥܒܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ
18 And many from those who were Believers came, and they told their faults, and were confessing with regard to the things which they were doing.

ܣܓܝܐܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܐܦ ܚܪܫܐ ܟܢܫܘ ܟܬܒܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܝܬܝܘ ܐܘܩܕܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܩܕܡ ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܘܚܫܒܘ ܕܡܝܗܘܢ ܘܣܠܩ ܟܣܦܐ ܪܒܘܬܐ ܚܡܫ
19 And then, many sorcerers also gathered. And having brought their books, they burned them before every man. And they calculated their value, and it rose unto five thousand silver pieces !

ܘܗܟܢܐ ܒܚܝܠܐ ܪܒܐ ܬܩܦܐ ܗܘܬ ܘܣܓܝܐ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
20 And thus, in great power, The Haymanutha d’Alaha {The Faith of God} prevailed, and increased.

ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܐܫܬܠܡ ܗܠܝܢ ܣܡ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܒܪܥܝܢܗ ܕܢܬܟܪܟ ܒܟܠܗ ܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܘܒܐܟܐܝܐ ܘܢܐܙܠ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܡܐ ܕܐܙܠܬ ܠܬܡܢ ܘܠܐ ܠܝ ܕܐܦ ܪܗܘܡܝ ܐܚܙܐ
21 Then, after these things were completed, Paulus {Paul} was set in his mind that he should go around in all Maqedunia {Macedonia} and Akaia {Achaia}, and to depart unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}. And he said, “When in any event that I have gone unto there, it is proper for me to also see Ruhume {Rome}.”

ܘܫܕܪ ܗܘܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܫܡܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܠܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܠܛܝܡܬܐܘܣ ܘܠܐܪܣܛܘܣ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܩܘܝ ܙܒܢܐ ܒܐܣܝܐ
22 And he sent two men from those who were ministering unto him, unto Maqedunia {Macedonia}; Timatheus {Timothy}, and Erastus. But, he remained a time in Asia {i.e. Asia-minor}.

ܗܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܗܘ ܙܒܢܐ ܫܓܘܫܝܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܥܠ ܐܘܪܚܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
23 Then, at that time it happened that there was a great disturbance concerning The Way of Alaha {God};

ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܥܒܕ ܣܐܡܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܕܡܛܪܝܘܣ ܕܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ ܢܘܣܐ ܕܣܐܡܐ ܠܐܪܛܡܝܣ ܘܡܘܬܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܢܝ ܐܘܡܢܘܬܗ ܝܘܬܪܢܐ ܪܒܐ
24 on that matter, there was there a worker of silver, one whose name was Dimitrius {Demetrius}, who made shrines of silver for Artemis, and he was gaining great abundance for the sons of his trade.

ܗܢܐ ܟܢܫ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܒܢܝ ܐܘܡܢܘܬܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܦܠܚܝܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܬܐܓܘܪܬܢ ܟܠܗ ܡܢ ܗܢܐ ܗܝ ܦܘܠܚܢܐ
25 This one gathered all the sons of their trade, and those who were laboring with them, and said unto them, “Men, you know that all our merchandise is from this work.

ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܚܙܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܠܒܢܝ ܐܦܣܘܣ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܠܣܘܓܐܐ ܕܟܠܗ ܐܣܝܐ ܐܦܝܣ ܗܢܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܐܗܦܟ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܕܠܘ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܒܐܝܕܝ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܡܬܥܒܕܝܢ
26 Also, you are hearing, and you are seeing, that not only you, the sons of Ephesus, but, also unto the multitude of all Asia {i.e. Asia-minor}, this Paulus {Paul} has persuaded, and has changed them, while he says that they are not deities which by the hands of the sons of men are made.

ܘܠܘ ܗܕܐ ܨܒܘܬܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܡܬܦܪܣܝܐ ܘܒܛܠܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܗܘ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܕܐܪܛܡܝܣ ܐܠܗܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܡܬܚܫܒ ܠܗ ܐܝܟ ܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܘܐܦ ܗܝ ܐܠܗܬܐ ܕܟܠܗ ܐܣܝܐ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܣܓܕܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܬܬܫܝܛܐ
27 And neither is this matter only exposed and stopped, but, also is the temple of the great goddess Artemis counted as for nothing! And also, she, the goddess of all Asia {i.e. Asia-minor}, and whom all the Nations bow down unto, is despised!”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܚܡܬܐ ܘܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܪܒܐ ܗܝ ܐܪܛܡܝܣ ܕܐܦܣܝܐ
28 And when they heard these things, they were filled with rage, and they were crying out and saying, “Great is Artemis of the Ephesaye {the Ephesians}!”

ܘܐܫܬܓܫܬ ܟܠܗ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܪܗܛܘ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܠܬܐܛܪܘܢ ܘܚܛܦܘ ܐܘܒܠܘ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܓܐܝܘܣ ܘܠܐܪܣܛܪܟܘܣ ܓܒܪܐ ܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܒܢܝ ܠܘܝܬܗ ܕܦܘܠܘܣ
29 And all the city was disturbed, and they ran together and went unto The Theatrun {The Amphitheater}, and they had seized and taken with them Gaius and Aristarkus; Maqedaynaye {Macedonians}; sons of the company of Paulus {Paul}.

ܘܦܘܠܘܣ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܥܘܠ ܠܬܐܛܪܘܢ ܘܟܠܐܘܗܝ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ
30 And Paulus {Paul} desired that he might enter unto The Theatrun {The Amphitheater}, and The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students} were restraining him.

ܘܐܦ ܪܫܐ ܕܐܣܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܪܚܡܘܗܝ ܗܘܘ ܫܕܪܘ ܒܥܘ ܡܢܗ ܕܠܐ ܢܬܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܕܢܥܘܠ ܠܬܐܛܪܘܢ
31 And even the Chiefs of Asia {i.e. Asia-minor}, on account that they were his friends, they sent, seeking from him that he shouldn’t give his soul, that he should enter unto The Theatrun {The Amphitheater}.

ܟܢܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܒܬܐܛܪܘܢ ܛܒ ܫܓܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܛܠ ܡܢܐ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ
32 Then, the kensha {the crowd} which was in The Theatrun {The Amphitheater} were excessively disturbed, and certain others were crying out, but, many from among them were not informed about why they had been gathered.

ܥܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܐܩܝܡܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܠܟܣܢܕܪܘܣ ܘܟܕ ܩܡ ܐܢܝܦ ܐܝܕܗ ܘܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܦܘܩ ܪܘܚܐ ܠܥܡܐ
33 Then, the Ama d’Yehudaye {the People of the Judeans/Jews} who were there, appointed a gabra {a man} from them, a Yehudaya {a Judean/a Jew} whose name was Aleksandrus {Alexander}. And when he stood up, he waved his hand, and was desiring that he might make a defense unto the Ama {the People}.

ܘܟܕ ܝܕܥܘ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܗܘ ܩܥܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܚܕ ܩܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܫܥܝܢ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܕܪܒܐ ܗܝ ܐܪܛܡܝܣ ܕܐܦܣܝܐ
34 And when they recognized that he was a Yehudaya {a Judean/a Jew}, they all cried out in one voice, about two hours, “Great is Artemis of the Ephesaye {the Ephesians}!”

ܘܫܠܝ ܐܢܘܢ ܪܫܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܦܣܝܐ ܡܢܘ ܓܝܪ ܡܢ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܐܦܣܝܐ ܕܟܘܡܪܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܐܪܛܡܝܣ ܪܒܬܐ ܘܠܨܠܡܗ ܕܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܢܚܬ
35 And the Chief of the city quieted them when he said unto them, “Men, Ephesaye {Ephesians}, for, who is it from the sons of men who doesn’t know the city of the Ephesaye {the Ephesians}, that she is the priestess of the great artemis; and the image which fell from the Heavens?

ܡܛܠ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܠܘܩܒܠ ܗܕܐ ܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܘܠܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܬܗܘܘܢ ܫܠܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܬܥܒܕܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܒܣܘܪܗܒܐ
36 Now then, on account that no nash {man} is able to speak to oppose this, it is proper for you that you be at ease, and not do something in haste,

ܐܝܬܝܬܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܕ ܠܐ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܚܠܨܘ ܘܠܐ ܨܚܝܘ ܠܐܠܗܬܢ
37 for, you have brought these men, while they are not temple robbers, and neither have they reviled our goddess.

38 but, if this Dimitrius, and the sons of his trade have a judgment with a nash {a man}, look! The Proconsul is in the city. The artisans, they shall come, and shall have a judgment one with the other.

ܘܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܡܕܡ ܐܚܪܝܢ ܒܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܕܘܟܬܐ ܕܝܗܝܒܐ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܠܟܢܘܫܝܐ ܡܫܬܪܐ
39 And if it is that you are seeking something different, in the place that is allowed from the law to assemble, it shall be decided,

ܡܛܠ ܕܐܦ ܗܫܐ ܒܩܘܢܕܝܢܘܣ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܢܬܪܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܫܓܘܫܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܢܦܘܩ ܪܘܚܐ ܥܠ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܝܘܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܐܬܟܢܫܢ ܒܛܠܐܝܬ ܘܐܫܬܓܫܢ ܕܠܐ ܥܠܬܐ
40 on account that we are even now standing in danger of being blamed as rioters, as we are not able to give an answer concerning the gathering of this day, which we have gathered in vain, and stirred up without a cause.”

ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܫܪܐ ܠܟܢܫܐ
41 And after these things were said, he dismissed the crowd.

Chapter 20
ܘܒܬܪ ܕܫܠܝ ܫܓܘܫܝܐ ܩܪܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܒܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܢܫܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܢܦܩ ܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܠܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ
1 And after that disturbance had ceased, Paulus {Paul} called for The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students}, and encouraged them, and kissed them, and went out, departing unto Maqedunia {Macedonia}.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܟܪܟ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐܬܪܘܬܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܘܒܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܡܠܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܗ ܠܗܠܣ ܐܬܪܐ
2 And after he had gone around unto those regions and comforted them with many words, he came unto the region of Helas {Greece},

ܘܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܬܠܬܐ ܝܪܚܝܢ ܥܒܕܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܢܟܠܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܟܕ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܐܙܠ ܠܣܘܪܝܐ ܘܐܬܚܫܒ ܕܢܗܦܘܟ ܠܗ ܠܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ
3 and was there three months. Then, when he was prepared to go unto Suria {Syria}, the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} made a plot against him, and he determined that he should return unto Maqedunia {Macedonia}.

ܘܢܦܩܘ ܥܡܗ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܐܣܝܐ ܣܘܦܛܪܘܣ ܕܡܢ ܒܪܘܐܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܪܣܛܪܟܘܣ ܘܣܩܘܢܕܘܣ ܕܡܢ ܬܣܠܘܢܝܩܐ ܘܓܐܝܘܣ ܕܡܢ ܕܪܒܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܛܝܡܬܐܘܣ ܕܡܢ ܠܘܣܛܪܐ ܘܡܢ ܐܣܝܐ ܛܘܟܝܩܘܣ ܘܛܪܘܦܝܡܘܣ
4 And Suphatrus {Sopater}, who was from Berua {Berea} city, went out with him as far as Asia {i.e. Asia-minor}, and Aristarkus {Aristarchus} and Sequndus {Secundus}, who were from Thesaluniqi {Thessalonica}, and Gaius, who was from Derbe city, and Timatheus {Timothy}, who was from Lustra {Lystra}; and from Asia {i.e. Asia-minor}; Tukiqus {Tychicus} and Truphimus {Trophimus}.

ܗܠܝܢ ܐܙܠܘ ܩܕܡܝܢ ܘܩܘܝܘ ܠܢ ܒܛܪܘܐܘܣ
5 These departed before us, and they waited for us at Truaus {Troas}.

ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܢܦܩܢ ܡܢ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܒܬܪ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܦܛܝܪܐ ܘܪܕܝܢ ܒܝܡܐ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܠܛܪܘܐܘܣ ܠܝܘܡܬܐ ܚܡܫܐ ܘܗܘܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܫܒܥܐ
6 Then, we went out from Philipus {Philippi}, the city of the Maqedunaye {the Macedonians}, after The Days of Phatiyre {i.e. The Feast of The Unleavened Breads/Passover}, and we journeyed by sea for five days, and we came unto Truaus {Troas}, and we were there seven days.

ܘܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܚܕ ܒܫܒܐ ܟܕ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܢܩܨܐ ܐܘܟܪܣܛܝܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܦܘܩ ܠܗ ܘܐܓܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܦܠܓܗ ܕܠܠܝܐ
7 And on the first day of the week, when we were gathering, so that we should break The Eukaristia {The Thanksgiving-Bread/The Eucharist}, Paulus {Paul} was speaking with them, on account that the next day he was prepared to go out; and he was speaking for a long time, until the middle of the night.

ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܠܡܦܝܕܐ ܕܢܘܪܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܒܥܠܝܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܒܗ
8 And there were many lamps of fire there in the room, that one in which we had gathered.

ܘܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܠܝܡܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܘܛܝܟܘܣ ܒܟܘܬܐ ܘܫܡܥ ܘܛܒܥ ܒܫܢܬܐ ܝܩܝܪܬܐ ܟܕ ܐܓܪ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܗܘ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܒܫܢܬܗ ܢܦܠ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܬܠܬܐ ܡܕܝܪܝܢ ܘܐܫܬܩܠ ܟܕ ܡܝܬ
9 And there sat in the window a certain young man whose name was Eutikus {Eutychus}, and he was listening. And he sank into a heavy sleep while he, Paulus {Paul}, was a long time in speech. And in his sleep he fell from the third floor, and was taken up, while dead.

ܘܢܚܬ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܢܦܠ ܠܥܠ ܡܢܗ ܘܥܦܩܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܐ ܬܬܙܝܥܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܢܦܫܗ ܒܗ ܗܝ
10 And going down, Paulus {Paul} fell on the side of him and embraced him, and said, “Do not be troubled, on account that his soul is in him!”

ܟܕ ܣܠܩ ܕܝܢ ܩܨܐ ܠܚܡܐ ܘܛܥܡ ܘܗܘܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܣܠܩ ܨܦܪܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܦܩ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܒܝܒܫܐ
11 Then, after he had gone up, he broke lakhma {bread} and tasted it, and was speaking until the rise of the morning. And then, he went forth to go by land.

ܘܕܒܪܘܗܝ ܠܥܠܝܡܐ ܟܕ ܚܝ ܘܚܕܝܘ ܒܗ ܪܘܪܒܐܝܬ
12 And they took the young man while alive, and they rejoiced in him greatly!

13 Then, we went down unto the ship, and we journeyed unto the appointed meeting place of Thasus {Thasos}, on account that from there we were prepared that we should receive Paulus {Paul}, for, thus he had commanded us when he departed by land.

ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܩܒܠܢܝܗܝ ܡܢ ܬܣܘܣ ܫܩܠܢܝܗܝ ܒܐܠܦܐ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܠܡܝܛܘܠܝܢܐ
14 Then, after we had received him from Thasus {Thasos}, we took him by ship and came unto Mitulini {Mitylene}.

ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܪܕܝܢ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܟܝܘܣ ܓܙܪܬܐ ܘܬܘܒ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܣܡܘܣ ܘܩܘܝܢ ܒܛܪܘܓܠܝܘܢ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܡܝܠܛܘܣ
15 And from there, unto the next day, we journeyed toward Kiyus {Chios} island, and again, the next day, we came unto Samus {Samos}, and remained at Trugiliun {Trogyllium}; and the next day we came unto Militus {Miletus},

ܦܣܝܩ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܓܝܪ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܢܥܒܪܝܗ ܠܐܦܣܘܣ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܫܬܘܚܪ ܠܗ ܬܡܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܣܪܗܒ ܗܘܐ ܕܐܢ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܝܘܡܐ ܕܦܢܛܩܘܣܛܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܢܥܒܕܝܘܗܝ
16 for, Paulus {Paul} had decided for himself that he should pass by Ephesus, lest he should be delayed there; on account that he was in a hurry, that if he were able, that he might celebrate The Day of Pentiqusti {Pentecost} in Urishlem {Jerusalem}.

17 And from Militus {Miletus} he sent to bring The Qashishe {The Elders} of The Edtha {The Assembly} of Ephesus.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܝܘܡܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܕܥܠܬ ܠܐܣܝܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܟܠܗ ܙܒܢܐ
18 And when they came unto him, he said unto them, “You yourselves know that from the first day that I entered unto Asia {i.e. Asia-minor}, how I was with you all the time,

ܟܕ ܦܠܚ ܐܢܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܒܡܟܝܟܘܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܘܒܕܡܥܐ ܘܒܢܣܝܘܢܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܝ ܒܢܟܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ
19 while I was laboring for Alaha {God}, in humility, and with many tears, and in those trials which had happened concerning the plots of the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews},

ܘܠܐ ܒܣܝܬ ܒܡܕܡ ܕܦܩܚ ܗܘܐ ܠܢܦܫܬܟܘܢ ܕܐܟܪܙ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܐܠܦ ܒܫܘܩܐ ܘܒܒܬܐ
20 I wasn’t neglectful in a thing which was profitable for your souls, so that I might Proclaim unto you and Teach in the streets, and in the houses,

ܟܕ ܡܣܗܕ ܗܘܝܬ ܠܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܠܐܪܡܝܐ ܥܠ ܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܕܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܒܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
21 while I was Testifying unto the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews} and unto the Armaye {the Arameans} concerning repentance unto Alaha {God}, and The Haymanutha {The Faith} which is in Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

ܘܗܫܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܣܝܪ ܐܢܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܘܐܙܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܐ ܐܪܥ ܠܝ ܒܗ
22 And now I am bound by The Rukha {The Spirit}, and I go unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and I don’t know what will occur to me in it,

ܒܪܡ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܒܟܠ ܡܕܝܢܐ ܡܣܗܕ ܠܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܐܣܘܪܐ ܘܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܥܬܝܕܝܢ ܠܟ
23 however, The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, in every city, Testifies unto me, and says, ‘Chains and afflictions are prepared for you.’

ܐܠܐ ܠܝ ܠܐ ܚܫܝܒܐ ܢܦܫܝ ܡܕܡ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܫܠܡ ܪܗܛܝ ܘܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܩܒܠܬ ܡܢ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܐܣܗܕ ܥܠ ܣܒܪܬܐ ܕܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
24 But, for me, I don’t count my soul a thing, so as that I should complete my course, and The Ministry that I received from Maran Eshu {Our Lord Y’shu}, so that I should Testify concerning The Sabartha d’Taybutheh d’Alaha {The Hopeful Message of The Grace of God}.

ܘܗܫܐ ܐܢܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܕܬܘܒ ܦܪܨܘܦܝ ܠܐ ܚܙܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܟܪܟܬ ܐܟܪܙܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ
25 And now, I am informed that my face you will not see again; all you unto whom I have gone around Proclaiming The Malkutha {The Kingdom}.

ܘܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܡܣܗܕ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܝܘܡܐ ܕܝܘܡܢܐ ܕܕܟܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܕܡܐ ܕܟܠܟܘܢ
26 On this account, I Testify unto you this very day, that I am clean from the blood of you all,

ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܫܬܐܠܬ ܕܐܘܕܥܟܘܢ ܟܠܗ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
27 for, I didn’t shrink back, so that you might know the whole will of Alaha {God}.

ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܒܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܘܒܟܠܗ ܡܪܥܝܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܐܩܝܡܟܘܢ ܒܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܐܦܣܩܘܦܐ ܕܬܪܥܘܢ ܠܥܕܬܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܝ ܕܩܢܗ ܒܕܡܗ
28 Be careful, therefore, with your souls, and with all The Flock; that one in which The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness} has established you as The Episqupe {The Overseers/The Bishops}, so that you should tend unto The Edtheh d’Meshikha {The Assembly of The Anointed One}, that One who acquired it with His blood.

ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܕܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܕܐܙܠ ܐܢܐ ܢܥܠܘܢ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܕܐܒܐ ܬܩܝܦܐ ܕܠܐ ܚܝܣܝܢ ܥܠ ܡܪܥܝܬܐ
29 For, I know that after I have departed, there will enter with you, strong wolves, who will have no pity on The Flock.

ܘܐܦ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܢܩܘܡܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܡܡܠܠܝ ܡܥܩܡܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܗܦܟܘܢ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܒܬܪܗܘܢ
30 And also from you; of your own; men will arise, speaking perversions, so as to turn around The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students}, so that they should go away after them.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܥܝܪܝܢ ܘܥܗܝܕܝܢ ܕܫܢܝܐ ܬܠܬ ܠܐ ܫܠܝܬ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܘܒܐܝܡܡܐ ܟܕ ܒܕܡܥܐ ܡܪܬܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܟܘܢ
31 Because of this, be watching, and remember that for three years I didn’t cease, in the night and in the daytime, while in tears, admonishing each man from you.

ܘܗܫܐ ܡܓܥܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܡܠܬܐ ܕܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܗܝ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܒܢܝܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܝܗܒܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܝܘܪܬܢܐ ܥܡ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܩܕܝܫܐ
32 And now, I entrust you unto Alaha {God}, and unto The Miltha d’Taybutheh {The Word of His Grace}, He who is able to build you up and give unto you The Inheritance with all The Qadishe {The Holy Ones}.

ܟܣܦܐ ܐܘ ܕܗܒܐ ܐܘ ܢܚܬܐ ܠܐ ܪܓܬ
33 I have not desired silver, or gold, or garments.

ܘܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܠܣܢܝܩܘܬܝ ܘܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܥܡܝ ܫܡܫ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܝܕܝ
34 And you yourselves know that these hands have provided for my needs, and for those who were with me.

35 And every thing I have shown you, that thus, it is proper to toil and to take care of those who are weak, and to remember the words of Maran Eshu {Our Lord Y’shu}, on account that He said: ‘More blessed are those who give, than who receive.’”

ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܩܥܕ ܥܠ ܒܘܪܟܘܗܝ ܘܨܠܝ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܥܡܗ
36 And after he said these things, he knelt upon his knees and prayed, and all the men with him.

ܘܗܘܬ ܒܟܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܥܦܩܘܗܝ ܘܡܢܫܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
37 And there was great weeping among all, and they embraced him, and were kissing him,

38 but, they were especially agonizing concerning his statement which he had said; that it was destined that they should not see his face again. And they accompanied him as far as unto the ship.

Chapter 21
ܘܦܪܫܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܘܪܕܝܢ ܬܪܝܨܐܝܬ ܠܩܘ ܓܙܪܬܐ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܪܘܕܘܣ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܠܦܐܛܪܐ
1 And we separated from them, and we journeyed straight unto Qaw island, and the next day we came unto Rudus {Rhodes}, and from there, unto Patara.

ܘܐܫܟܚܢ ܬܡܢ ܐܠܦܐ ܕܐܙܠܐ ܠܦܘܢܝܩܐ ܘܣܠܩܢ ܠܗ ܘܪܕܝܢ
2 And we found a ship there which was going unto Phuniqi {Phoenicia}, and we went up to it, and we journeyed.

ܘܡܛܝܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܘܬ ܩܘܦܪܘܣ ܓܙܪܬܐ ܘܫܒܩܢܗ ܠܣܡܠܐ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܠܣܘܪܝܐ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܡܛܝܢ ܠܨܘܪ ܬܡܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܠܐܠܦܐ ܠܡܢܚܘ ܛܥܢܗ
3 And we reached as far as Quprus {Cyprus} island, and we departed it to the left, and we came unto Suria {Syria}, and from there, we came unto Tsur {Tyre}, for, there the ship was to put off its cargo.

ܘܟܕ ܐܫܟܚܢ ܬܡܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܩܘܝܢ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܫܒܥܐ ܘܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܝܘܡ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܒܪܘܚ ܕܠܐ ܢܐܙܠ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
4 And when we found The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students} there, we remained with them seven days. And these were saying everyday unto Paulus {Paul}, by The Rukh {The Spirit}, that he shouldn’t go unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}.

ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܢܦܩܢ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܡܠܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܢܫܝܗܘܢ ܘܒܢܝܗܘܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܩܥܕܘ ܥܠ ܒܘܪܟܝܗܘܢ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܝܡܐ ܘܨܠܝܘ
5 And after those days, we went out, so that we should go on the way, and they were accompanying us, all of them, they and their women, and their sons, as far as outside from the city. And they knelt upon their knees on the side of the sea, and they prayed.

ܘܢܫܩܢ ܠܚܕܕܐ ܘܣܠܩܢ ܠܐܠܦܐ ܘܗܦܟܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܠܒܬܝܗܘܢ
6 And we kissed each other, and we ascended unto the ship. And they returned unto their houses.

ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܪܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܨܘܪ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܠܥܟܘ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܝܗܒܢ ܫܠܡܐ ܠܐܚܐ ܕܬܡܢ ܘܫܪܝܢ ܨܐܕܝܗܘܢ ܝܘܡܐ ܚܕ
7 Then we journeyed from Tsur {Tyre}, and we came unto Aku {Accho} city, and we gave Shlama {Peace} unto The Brothers who were there, and we lodged with them one day.

ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܦܩܢ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܠܩܣܪܝܐ ܘܥܠܢ ܫܪܝܢ ܒܒܝܬܗ ܕܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܡܣܒܪܢܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܫܒܥܐ
8 And the next day we went out, and we came unto Qasariya {Caesarea}, and we entered, lodging in the house of Philipus {Philip}, The Masabrana {The Evangelist, lit. The Declarer of The Hope}, one who was from The Shaba {The Seven}.

ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܝ ܠܗ ܒܢܬܐ ܒܬܘܠܬܐ ܐܪܒܥ ܕܡܬܢܒܝܢ ܗܘܝ
9 And there was unto him four virgin daughters, who prophesied.

ܘܟܕ ܐܝܬܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܢܚܬ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕ ܢܒܝܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܐܓܒܘܣ
10 And after we were there many days, there had come down from Yehud {Judea}, a certain Nabiya {Prophet}, whose name was Agabus,

ܘܥܠ ܠܘܬܢ ܘܫܩܠ ܥܪܩܬܐ ܕܚܨܘܗܝ ܕܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܐܣܪ ܪܓܠܐ ܕܢܦܫܗ ܘܐܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܡܪܗ ܕܥܪܩܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܐܣܪܘܢܗ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܢܫܠܡܘܢܗ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܥܡܡܐ
11 and he entered unto us and removed the loins strap of Paulus {Paul}, and bound his own feet and his hands, and said, “Thus says The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}: ‘The gabra {man}, the owner of this strap, thus will the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} bind in Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and will deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.’ ”

ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܫܡܥܢ ܒܥܝܢ ܡܢܗ ܚܢܢ ܘܒܢܝ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܐܙܠ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
12 And after we heard these words, we were begging him; we, and the sons of the region, that he shouldn’t go unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܒܟܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܫܚܩܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ ܠܠܒܝ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܐܬܐܣܪ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܡܛܝܒ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܕܐܡܘܬ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܚܠܦ ܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
13 Then Paulus {Paul} responded, and said, “What are you doing, that you are weeping, and you are breaking my heart? For, I am ready not only to be bound, but also, that I should die in Urishlem {Jerusalem} for The Name of Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}!”

ܘܟܕ ܠܐ ܐܬܛܦܝܣ ܠܢ ܒܗܠܢ ܠܢ ܘܐܡܪܢ ܕܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܢܗܘܐ
14 And when he was not reconciled unto us, we ceased, and we said unto him, “The will of Maran {Our Lord} will happen.”

ܘܒܬܪ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܬܛܝܒܢ ܘܣܠܩܢ ܠܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
15 And after those days, we prepared, and we went up unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}.

ܘܐܬܘ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܡܢ ܩܣܪܝܐ ܟܕ ܕܒܝܪܝܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܐܚܐ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܣܘܢ ܘܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܩܘܦܪܘܣ ܕܢܩܒܠܢ ܒܒܝܬܗ
16 And there came with us men; The Talmiyde {The Disciples/The Students} from Qasariya {Caesarea}, while leading with them a certain Brother, from the first Talmiyde {Disciples/Students}, whose name was Manasun, and who was from Quprus {Cyprus}, who was to receive us in his house.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܩܒܠܘܢ ܐܚܐ ܚܕܝܐܝܬ
17 And when we had come unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}, The Brothers received us gladly.

ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܥܠܢ ܥܡ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܠܘܬ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܟܕ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܩܫܝܫܐ
18 And the next day we entered with Paulus {Paul} unto Yaqub {i.e. Jacob/James}, The Shlikhe {The Sent One}, where there were with him all The Qashishe {The Elders}.

ܘܝܗܒܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܠܡܐ ܘܡܫܬܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܒܬܪ ܒܬܪ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܥܡܡܐ ܒܬܫܡܫܬܗ
19 And we gave Shlama {Peace} unto them, and Paulus {Paul} related unto them successively all that Alaha {God} had done among the Gentiles through his Ministry.

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܫܒܚܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܬ ܐܚܘܢ ܟܡܐ ܪܒܘܢ ܐܝܬ ܒܝܗܘܕ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܛܢܢܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ
20 And when they heard, they gave praise unto Alaha {God}. And they said unto him, “You see, our Brother, how many thousands {lit. tens of thousands} there are in Yehud {Judea} who have believed? And all these, they are zealous of The Namusa {The Law}!

ܐܬܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܥܠܝܟ ܕܡܠܦ ܐܢܬ ܕܢܦܪܩܘܢ ܡܢ ܡܘܫܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܒܥܡܡܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܕܠܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܓܙܪܝܢ ܒܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܒܥܝܕܐ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܡܗܠܟܝܢ
21 But, it was said unto them concerning you, that you teach all the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} who are among the Gentiles, that they should separate from Mushe {Moses}, while you are saying that they shouldn’t be circumcising their sons, and not be walking in the customs of The Namusa {The Law}.

ܡܛܠ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܡܫܬܡܥܐ ܗܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܐܬܝܬ ܠܟܐ
22 On account, therefore, that it will be announced unto them that you have come here,

ܥܒܕ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܟ ܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܪܒܥܐ ܕܢܕܝܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܬܕܟܘܢ
23 perform the thing which we are saying unto you: For us are four men, who have vowed unto themselves that they should be cleansed.

ܕܒܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܙܠ ܐܬܕܟܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܐܦܩ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܢܦܩܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܓܪܥܘܢ ܪܫܝܗܘܢ ܘܡܬܝܕܥܐ ܠܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܥܠܝܟ ܕܓܠ ܗܘ ܘܐܢܬ ܠܢܡܘܣܐ ܫܠܡ ܐܢܬ ܘܢܛܪ
24 Take them, and go be cleansed with them, and pay their expense, so that they should have their heads shaved, and every man will know that the thing which was said about you, is a lie, and that unto The Namusa {The Law}, you obey it, and you guard it.

ܥܠ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܡܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܚܢܢ ܟܬܒܢ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܢܛܪܝܢ ܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܕܕܒܝܚܐ ܘܡܢ ܙܢܝܘܬܐ ܘܡܢ ܚܢܝܩܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܡܐ
25 But, concerning those who believe from the Gentiles, we wrote that they should be keeping their souls from what is sacrificed, and from fornication, and from the strangled, and from blood.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܒܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܘܐܬܕܟܝ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܥܠ ܐܙܠ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܟܕ ܡܘܕܥ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܘܠܝܐ ܕܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܬܕܟܝܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܬܩܪܒ ܩܘܪܒܢܐ ܕܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ
26 Then, Paulus {Paul} lead them, those men, the next day, and he was cleansed with them, and entered, going unto The Haykla {The Temple}, while he made known unto them the completion of the days of cleansing, until that they had offered the sacrifice of each man from them.

ܘܟܕ ܡܛܝ ܝܘܡܐ ܕܫܒܥܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܡܢ ܐܣܝܐ ܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܓܪܝܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܥܡܐ ܟܠܗ ܘܐܪܡܝܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܝܕܝܐ
27 And when the seventh day arrived, Yehudaye {Judeans/Jews} who were from Asia {i.e. Asia-Minor} saw him in The Haykla {The Temple}, and they incited against him all the Ama {the People}, and they threw their hands upon him,

ܟܕ ܡܒܓܢܝܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܥܕܪܘ ܗܢܐ ܗܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܠܘܩܒܠ ܥܡܐ ܕܝܠܢ ܡܠܦ ܒܟܠ ܕܘܟܐ ܘܠܘܩܒܠ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܘܠܘܩܒܠ ܐܬܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܐܦ ܠܐܪܡܝܐ ܐܥܠ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܣܝܒܗ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܩܕܝܫܐ
28 while they were crying out, and they were saying, “Men! Sons of IysraIyl {Israel}, help! This is the man who opposes our own Ama {People}, teaching in every place, and opposes The Namusa {The Law}, and opposes this place! And even has brought Armaye {Arameans} unto The Haykla {The Temple}, and defiled this Holy Place!”

ܩܕܡܘ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܚܙܘ ܥܡܗ ܠܛܪܘܦܝܡܘܣ ܐܦܣܝܐ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܣܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܥܡ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܥܠ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ
29 For, they had seen him beforehand with Truphimus {Trophimus} the Ephesaya {the Ephesian}, in the city, and they were supposing that he entered with Paulus {Paul} unto The Haykla {The Temple}.

ܘܐܫܬܓܫܬ ܟܠܗ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܘܐܚܕܘܗܝ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܓܪܘܗܝ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܒܪܫܥܬܗ ܐܬܬܚܕܘ ܬܪܥܐ
30 And all the city was disturbed, and all the Ama {the People} gathered, and they seized Paulus {Paul}, and they dragged him outside from The Haykla {The Temple}, and at once, {lit. in the son of an hour} they shut the gates.

ܘܟܕ ܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܟܢܫܐ ܠܡܩܛܠܗ ܐܫܬܡܥܬ ܠܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܕܐܣܦܝܪ ܕܟܠܗ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܬܬܙܝܥܬ ܠܗ
31 And while the crowd was seeking to kill him, the Kiliarka {lit. the Captain of a thousand} of the troop heard that all the city was disturbed.

ܘܒܪܫܥܬܗ ܕܒܪ ܠܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܘܠܐܣܛܪܛܝܘܛܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܪܗܛܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܠܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܘܠܐܣܛܪܛܝܘܛܐ ܒܗܠܘ ܡܢ ܕܡܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ
32 And at once {lit. in the son of an hour} he led a Qentruna {a Captain of a hundred}, and many Soldiers, and they ran upon them, and when they saw the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand}, and the Soldiers, they ceased from striking Paulus {Paul}.

ܘܩܪܒ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܘܐܚܕܗ ܘܦܩܕ ܕܢܐܣܪܘܢܗ ܒܬܪܬܝܢ ܫܫܠܢ ܘܡܫܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܕܡܢܘ ܘܡܢܐ ܥܒܕ
33 And the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand} came near unto him, and took hold of him, and commanded that he should be bound with two chains. And he was asking about him; who he was; what he had done.

ܘܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܐܟܠܘܣ ܡܕܡ ܡܕܡ ܘܡܛܠ ܩܥܬܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܕܥ ܐܝܕܐ ܗܝ ܫܪܝܪ ܐܝܬ ܘܦܩܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܘܒܠܘܢܗ ܠܡܫܪܝܬܐ
34 And Persons from the crowd were crying out certain things against him, and on account of their clamor he wasn’t able to know what was true, and he commanded that he should be brought unto The Shritha {The Fortress}.

ܘܟܕ ܡܛܝ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܠܕܪܓܐ ܛܥܢܘܗܝ ܐܣܛܪܛܝܘܛܐ ܡܛܠ ܩܛܝܪܐ ܕܥܡܐ
35 And when Paulus {Paul} reached the stairway, the Soldiers carried him, on account of the violence of the Ama {the People},

ܐܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܬܪܗ ܥܡܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܫܩܘܠܝܗܝ
36 for, there came after him many Ama {People}, and they were crying out, and were saying, “take him away!”

ܘܟܕ ܡܛܝ ܠܡܥܠ ܠܡܫܪܝܬܐ ܗܘ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܐܡܪ ܠܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܐܢ ܡܦܣ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ ܐܡܠܠ ܥܡܟ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܘܢܐܝܬ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܬ
37 And when they arrived to enter unto The Shritha {The Fortress}, he, Paulus {Paul} said unto the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand}, “If you allow me, I will speak with you.” He then said unto him, “Do you know Yawnayith {Greek}?

ܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܡܨܪܝܐ ܕܩܕܡ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܙܝܥܬ ܘܐܦܩܬ ܠܡܕܒܪܐ ܐܪܒܥܐ ܐܠܦܝܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܥܒܕܝ ܒܝܫܬܐ
38 Are you not the Mitsraya {the Egyptian}, who before these days stirred up and led out unto the wilderness, four thousand men; evildoers?”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܐܢܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܢܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܡܢ ܛܪܣܘܣ ܕܩܝܠܝܩܝܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܝܕܝܥܬܐ ܕܒܗ ܝܠܝܕ ܐܢܐ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܟ ܐܦܣ ܠܝ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ ܠܥܡܐ
39 Paulus {Paul} said unto him, “I am a Yehudaya {a Judean/Jewish man} from Tarsus of Qiliqia {Cilicia}, a notable city in which I was born. I am seeking from you, allow me to speak to the Ama {the People}.”

ܘܟܕ ܐܦܣ ܠܗ ܩܡ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܥܠ ܕܪܓܐ ܘܐܙܝܥ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܗ ܘܟܕ ܒܗܠܘ ܡܠܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܥܒܪܐܝܬ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
40 And when he allowed him, Paulus {Paul} stood on the stairs and waved his hand unto them. And after they were quiet, he spoke Ebraith {the Hebrew, or rather, the Aramaic language} with them, and said unto them,

Chapter 22
ܐܚܐ ܘܐܒܗܬܐ ܫܡܥܘ ܡܦܩ ܒܪܘܚ ܕܠܘܬܟܘܢ
1 “Akhe {Brothers} and, Abahatha {Fathers}, be hearing my defense which is before you!”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܕܥܒܪܐܝܬ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܒܗܠܘ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
2 And when they heard that he was speaking Ebraith {the Hebrew’s language, i.e. Aramaic} with them, they were especially quiet. And he said unto them,

ܐܢܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܢܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܝܠܝܕ ܐܢܐ ܒܛܪܣܘܣ ܕܩܝܠܝܩܝܐ ܐܬܪܒܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܒܗܕܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܕܓܡܠܝܐܝܠ ܘܐܬܪܕܝܬ ܓܡܝܪܐܝܬ ܒܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܐܒܗܬܢ ܘܐܝܬܝ ܗܘܝܬ ܛܢܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܐܝܬܝܟܘܢ
3 “I am a Yehudaya {a Judean/Jew}, and I was born in Tarsus of Qiliqia {Cilicia}. But, I grew up in this city, at the side of the feet of GamalIyl {Gamaliel}. And I was instructed perfectly in The Namusa d’Abahathan {The Law of our fathers}, and was zealous of Alaha {God}, like to what also all of you are.

ܘܠܗܕܐ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܪܕܦܬ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܡܘܬܐ ܟܕ ܐܣܪ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܡܫܠܡ ܗܘܝܬ ܠܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܘܢܫܐ
4 And I persecuted this Way as far as unto death, while binding men and women and delivering them unto the prisoner’s house,

ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܣܗܕ ܥܠܝ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܡܢܗܘܢ ܩܒܠܬ ܐܓܪܬܐ ܕܐܙܠ ܠܘܬ ܐܚܐ ܕܒܕܪܡܣܘܩ ܕܐܦ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܐܝܬܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܟܕ ܐܣܝܪܝܢ ܘܢܩܒܠܘܢ ܡܣܡ ܒܪܫܐ
5 according to what, which the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs}, and all the Qashishe {the Elders} testify concerning me, that from them I received letters, so that I should go unto The Akhe {The Brothers} who were in Darmsuq {Damascus}, so that those who were there, they also should be brought unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}, while bound, and should receive punishment {lit. punishment on the head}.

ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܫܪܝܬ ܡܡܛܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܕܪܡܣܘܩ ܒܦܠܓܗ ܕܝܘܡܐ ܡܢ ܬܚܝܬ ܫܠܝܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܐܙܠܓ ܥܠܝ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ
6 And while I was going, and began to reach unto Darmsuq {Damascus}, in the middle of the day, suddenly from the Heavens, there shone a Great Light upon me,

ܘܢܦܠܬ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܘܫܡܥܬ ܩܠܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܝ ܫܐܘܠ ܫܐܘܠ ܡܢܐ ܪܕܦ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ
7 and I fell upon the ground, and heard a voice which was saying unto me, ‘Shaul {Saul}! Shaul {Saul}! Why do you persecute Me?’

ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܝܬ ܘܐܡܪܬ ܡܢ ܐܢܬ ܡܪܝ ܘܗܘ ܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܐܢܐ ܗܘ ܝܫܘܥ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܕܐܢܬ ܪܕܦ ܐܢܬ
8 I then answered and said, ‘Who are you Mari {My Lord}?’ And He said unto me, ‘I am He, Eshu Natsraya {Y’shu, the Nazarene}, whom you persecute.’

ܘܐܢܫܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܝ ܚܙܘ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܩܠܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܫܡܥܘ ܕܗܘ ܕܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܝ
9 And the men who were there with me saw The Light, but, the voice they didn’t understand; that One which was speaking with me.

ܘܐܡܪܬ ܡܢܐ ܐܥܒܕ ܡܪܝ ܘܡܪܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܩܘܡ ܙܠ ܠܕܪܡܣܘܩ ܘܬܡܢ ܢܬܡܠܠ ܥܡܟ ܥܠ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܡܬܦܩܕ ܠܟ ܕܬܥܒܕ
10 And I said, ‘What shall I do, Mari {My Lord}?’ And Maran {Our Lord} said unto me, ‘Arise, go unto Darmsuq {Damascus}, and there will be spoken with you concerning every thing which is appointed for you to do.’

ܘܟܕ ܠܐ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܝ ܡܛܠ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܗ ܕܢܘܗܪܐ ܗܘ ܐܚܕܘܢܝ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܥܡܝ ܗܘܘ ܘܥܠܬ ܠܕܪܡܣܘܩ
11 And while there was no sight for me, on account of The Glory of The Light; those who were with me took me by my hands, and brought me unto Darmsuq {Damascus}.

ܘܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܟܐܢܐ ܒܢܡܘܣܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܣܗܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܬܡܢ
12 And one man, KhananYa {Ananias}; upright in The Namusa {The Law}, as all the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} there were testifying about him,

ܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܫܐܘܠ ܐܚܝ ܦܬܚ ܥܝܢܝܟ ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܐܬܦܬܚ ܥܝܢܝ ܘܚܪܬ ܒܗ
13 came unto me, and said unto me, ‘Akhi Shaul {My Brother Saul}, open your eyes!’ And at that moment, my eyes opened, and I looked at him!

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܒܗܬܢ ܐܩܝܡܟ ܠܡܕܥ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܘܬܚܙܐ ܠܙܕܝܩܐ ܘܬܫܡܥ ܩܠܐ ܡܢ ܦܘܡܗ
14 And he said unto me, ‘The Alaha d’Abahathan {The God of our fathers} has established you to know Tsebyaneh {His will}, and to see The Zadiyqa {The Just One}, and to hear the voice from His mouth,

ܘܬܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܣܗܕܐ ܠܘܬ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܥܠ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܚܙܝܬ ܘܫܡܥܬ
15 and for you to become a Sahda {a Witness} unto all sons of men, concerning all of which you have seen and have heard.

ܘܗܫܐ ܡܢܐ ܡܫܬܘܚܪ ܐܢܬ ܩܘܡ ܥܡܕ ܘܐܬܕܟܐ ܡܢ ܚܛܗܝܟ ܟܕ ܩܪܐ ܐܢܬ ܫܡܗ
16 And now, why do you tarry? Rise up! Be Immersed {Baptized}! And be cleansed from your sins, while you call upon His Name.’

ܘܗܦܟܬ ܐܬܝܬ ܠܟܐ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܨܠܝܬ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ
17 And I returned, came unto here; unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and prayed in The Haykla {The Temple}.

ܘܚܙܝܬܗ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܐܣܬܪܗܒ ܘܦܘܩ ܠܟ ܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܡܩܒܠܝܢ ܣܗܕܘܬܟ ܕܥܠܝ
18 And I saw Him in a khezwa {a vision}, while He said unto me, ‘Be quick, and go forth from Urishlem {Jerusalem}, on account that they will not receive Sahduthak {your Testimony} which is concerning Me.’

ܘܐܢܐ ܐܡܪܬ ܡܪܝ ܐܦ ܗܢܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܕܐܢܐ ܡܫܠܡ ܗܘܝܬ ܠܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܘܡܚܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܒܟܠ ܟܢܘܫܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܟ
19 And I said, ‘Mari {My Lord}! They also know that I delivered unto the prisoner’s house, and beat in all the Kenushan {the Synagogues}, those who were believing in You!

ܘܟܕ ܡܬܐܫܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܡܗ ܕܐܣܛܦܢܘܣ ܣܗܕܟ ܘܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܩܐܡ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܫܠܡ ܗܘܝܬ ܠܨܒܝܢܗܘܢ ܕܩܛܘܠܘܗܝ ܘܢܛܪ ܗܘܝܬ ܡܐܢܐ ܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܪܓܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
20 And when the blood poured out of Estephanus {Stephen}, Sahdak {Your Martyr/Witness}, I also was standing with them, and fulfilled the desires of his murderers, and watched over their garments; those who were stoning him.’

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܙܠ ܕܐܢܐ ܡܫܕܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܠܪܘܚܩܐ ܠܡܟܪܙܘ ܠܥܡܡܐ
21 And He said unto me, ‘Go! For, I am sending you far off, to Proclaim unto the Gentiles!’”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘܗܝ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܕܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܐܪܝܡܘ ܩܠܗܘܢ ܘܩܥܘ ܢܫܬܩܠ ܡܢ ܐܪܥܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܘܠܐ ܠܗ ܠܡܚܐ
22 And when they heard Paulus {Paul} up to this word, they raised their voices and cried out, “This one of such a sort should be taken from the Earth! For, it is not fitting for him to live!”

ܘܟܕ ܡܒܓܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܫܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܐܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܡܣܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܠܐ ܠܫܡܝܐ
23 And while they were crying out and were throwing off their garments, and were sending up dust unto the Shmaya {the Heavens},

ܦܩܕ ܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܕܢܥܠܘܢܗ ܠܡܫܪܝܬܐ ܘܦܩܕ ܕܒܢܓܕܐ ܢܫܬܐܠ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܕܥ ܡܛܠ ܐܝܕܐ ܥܠܬܐ ܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ
24 the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand} commanded that he be brought unto The Mashritha {The Fortress}, and commanded that with scourging he should be questioned, such that it might be known on account of what cause they were crying out against him.

ܘܟܕ ܡܬܚܘܗܝ ܒܥܪܩܐ ܐܡܪ ܗܘ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܠܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܕܩܐܡ ܗܘܐ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܡܦܣ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܓܒܪܐ ܪܗܘܡܝܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܚܝܒ ܕܬܢܓܕܘܢ
25 And while they stretched him with straps, he, Paulus {Paul} said unto the Qentruna {the Captain of a hundred} who was standing next to him, “Is it permitted for you that you should scourge a man, a Ruhmaya {a Roman}, who isn’t condemned?”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܩܪܒ ܠܘܬ ܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܗܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܪܗܘܡܝܐ ܗܘ
26 And when the Qentruna {the Centurion/the Captain of a hundred} heard this , he came near unto the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand}, and said unto him, “What are you doing? For, this man is a Ruhmaya {a Roman}!”

ܘܩܪܒ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܐܢܬ ܪܗܘܡܝܐ ܐܢܬ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܝܢ
27 And the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand} came near unto him, and said unto him, “Tell me, are you a Ruhmaya {a Roman}?” And he said unto him, “Yes.”

ܘܥܢܐ ܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܢܐ ܒܟܣܦܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܩܢܝܬܗ ܠܪܗܘܡܝܘܬܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܒܗ ܐܬܝܠܕܬ
28 And the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand} answered, and said unto him, “I, with much silver, acquired Ruhmayutha {Roman-citizenship}.” Paulus {Paul} said unto him, “But, I was even born with it!”

ܘܡܚܕܐ ܦܪܩܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܗ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܢܓܕܘܬܗ ܘܕܚܠ ܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܟܕ ܝܠܦ ܕܪܗܘܡܝܐ ܗܘ ܥܠ ܕܦܟܪܗ ܗܘܐ
29 And at once those who were seeking to beat him withdrew from him, and the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand} was fearful when he learned that he was a Ruhmaya {a Roman}, concerning him being bound.

ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܕܥ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܕܡܢܐ ܗܝ ܩܛܓܪܢܘܬܐ ܕܡܝܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܫܪܝܗܝ ܘܦܩܕ ܕܢܐܬܘܢ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܟܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܪܫܝܗܘܢ ܘܕܒܪ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܐܚܬ ܐܩܝܡܗ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ
30 And the next day he desired to know truthfully what was the accusation that the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} had brought against him, and he loosed him, and commanded that the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs}, and all The Kensha {the Assembly} of their leaders, should come. And he led Paulus {Paul}, and going down, stood him among them.

Chapter 23
ܘܟܕ ܚܪ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܒܟܢܫܗܘܢܐܡܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝ ܐܢܐ ܒܟܠ ܬܐܪܬܐ ܛܒܬܐ ܐܬܕܒܪܬ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܢܐ
1 And while Paulus {Paul} looked at their gathering, he said, “Gabre akhay {Men, my brothers}! I, in all good conscience, have been led before Alaha {God} up to today.”

ܘܚܢܢܝܐ ܟܗܢܐ ܦܩܕ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܥܠ ܓܒܗ ܕܢܡܚܘܢܗ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܥܠ ܦܘܡܗ
2 And KhananYa {Ananias} The Kahna {The Priest} commanded those who were standing next to him, that they should strike Paulus {Paul} on the mouth.

ܘܦܘܠܘܣ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܢܡܚܝܟ ܐܣܬܐ ܡܚܘܪܬܐ ܘܐܢܬ ܝܬܒ ܐܢܬ ܕܐܢ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ ܐܝܟ ܕܒܢܡܘܣܐ ܟܕ ܥܒܪ ܐܢܬ ܥܠ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܘܦܩܕ ܐܢܬ ܕܢܡܚܘܢܢܝ
3 And Paulus {Paul} said unto him, “Alaha {God} is prepared that He should strike you, Estha Mahawartha {Whitened Wall}! And you sit judging me as to that which is in The Namusa {The Law}, while you transgress concerning The Namusa {The Law}, and you command that they strike me?”

ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܟܗܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܨܚܐ ܐܢܬ
4 And those who were standing there, they said unto him, “You revile The Kahna d’Alaha {The Priest of God}?”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܝܬ ܐܚܝ ܕܟܗܢܐ ܗܘ ܟܬܝܒ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܪܫܐ ܕܥܡܟ ܠܐ ܬܠܘܛ
5 Paulus {Paul} said unto them, “I didn’t know, akhay {my brothers}, that he is The Kahna {The Priest}. For it is written: ‘Do not curse the Risha {the Head/the Leader} of Amak {your People}’”

ܘܟܕ ܝܕܥ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܡܢܗ ܕܥܡܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܕܙܕܘܩܝܐ ܘܡܢܗ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܩܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܫܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝ ܐܢܐ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܐܢܐ ܒܪ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܥܠ ܣܒܪܐ ܕܩܝܡܬܐ ܕܡܝܬܐ ܡܬܬܕܝܢ ܐܢܐ
6 And when Paulus {Paul} recognized that there were Ama {People} which were from the Zaduqaye {the Sadducees}, and which were from the Phrishe {the Pharisees}, he cried out in the gathering: “Gabre akhay Men, my brothers}! I am a Phrisha {a Pharisee}, the son of a Priysha {a Pharisee}. And concerning The Sabra d’aYqamtha d’miythe {The Hope of The Resurrection of the dead}, I am being judged!”

ܘܟܕ ܗܕܐ ܐܡܪ ܢܦܠܘ ܚܕ ܒܚܕ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܙܕܘܩܝܐ ܘܐܬܦܠܓ ܥܡܐ
7 And when he said this, the Phrishe {the Pharisees} and the Zaduqaye {the Sadducees} fought {lit. fell on, or broke out} one with the other, and the Ama {the People} were divided,

ܙܕܘܩܝܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܠܝܬ ܩܝܡܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܘܠܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܘܕܝܢ ܒܟܠܗܝܢ
8 for, the Zaduqaye {the Sadducees} say that there is no Resurrection, and no Malake { Heavenly Messengers}, and no rukha {spirit}, but, the Phrishe {the Pharisees} swear to all these things .

ܘܗܘܐ ܩܠܐ ܪܒܐ ܘܩܡܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܣܦܪܐ ܡܢ ܓܒܐ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܢܨܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܒܝܫ ܒܗܢܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܐܘ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܡܠܠ ܥܡܗ ܡܢܐ ܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܒܗܕܐ
9 And there was a great clamor. And men stood up; the Saphre {the Scribes} from The Sect of the Phrishe {the Pharisees}; and they were quarreling with them, and they were saying: “We haven’t found anything that is evil with this man, but, if a rukha {a spirit} or a Malaka {a Heavenly Messenger} has spoke with him, what is there wrong in this?”

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܫܓܘܫܝܐ ܪܒܐ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ ܕܚܠ ܗܘܐ ܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܦܫܚܘܢܗ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܫܠܚ ܠܪܗܘܡܝܐ ܕܢܐܬܘܢ ܢܚܛܦܘܢܗ ܡܢ ܡܨܥܬܗܘܢ ܘܢܥܠܘܢܗ ܠܡܫܪܝܬܐ
10 And when there was a great disturbance between them, the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand} was afraid, that perhaps they should dismember Paulus {Paul}. And he sent for the Ruhmaye {the Romans}, so that they should snatch him from their midst and bring him unto The Mashriytha {The Fortress}.

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܠܝܐ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗ ܡܪܢ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܬܚܝܠ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܝܟ ܕܐܣܗܕܬ ܥܠܝ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܗܟܢܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܐܢܬ ܕܐܦ ܒܪܗܘܡܐ ܬܣܗܕ
11 And when it was night, Maran {Our Lord} appeared unto Paulus {Paul}, and said unto him, “Be strengthened! On account that as you have Testified about Me in Urishlem {Jerusalem}, thus, it is destined that you shall Testify also in Ruhme {Rome}.”

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܨܦܪܐ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܗܘܘ ܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܐܚܪܡܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܐܟܠܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܢܫܬܘܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܩܛܠܘܢܗܝ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ
12 And when it was morning, men were gathering from the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews}, and they vowed concerning themselves that they would not eat, and not drink, until that they should kill Paulus {Paul}.

ܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܩܝܡܘ ܒܡܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܐ ܩܝܡܐ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܓܒܪܝܢ
13 But, it happened to be, those who had been established in this oath, by a pact, were more than forty men.

ܘܐܬܩܪܒܘ ܠܘܬ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܠܘܬ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܚܪܡܐ ܐܚܪܡܢ ܥܠܝܢ ܕܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܢܛܥܡ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܩܛܘܠ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ
14 And they drew near towards The Kahne {The Priests}, and towards the Qashishe {the Elders}, and they were saying, “A curse we have vowed upon us, that we shall not taste a thing until that we should kill Paulus {Paul}.

ܘܗܫܐ ܒܥܘ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܪܫܐ ܕܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܡܢ ܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܕܢܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܒܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܬܒܨܘܢ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܣܘܥܪܢܗ ܘܚܢܢ ܡܛܝܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܢܩܛܠܝܘܗܝ ܥܕܠܐ ܢܡܛܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ
15 And now, you and the Rishe {the Heads/the Leaders} of the Kenushtha {the Synagogue} should seek from the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand}, that he should bring him unto us, as to your inquiry, so that you should investigate the affair truly. And we are ready that we should kill him before he shall arrive unto you.”

ܘܫܡܥ ܗܘܐ ܒܪ ܚܬܗ ܕܦܘܠܘܣ ܐܦܪܣܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܥܠ ܠܡܫܪܝܬܐ ܘܒܕܩ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ
16 And the son of Paulus’ {Paul’s} sister had heard this plot, and entered unto The Mashriytha {The Fortress}, and made it known unto Paulus {Paul}.

ܘܫܕܪ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܩܪܐ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܘܒܠ ܠܥܠܝܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܠܘܬ ܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܓܝܪ ܡܕܡ ܕܢܐܡܪ ܠܗ
17 And Paulus {Paul} sent, calling for one from the Qentrune {the Centurions/the Captains of a hundred}, and said unto him, “Take this boy to the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand}, for, he has for him something that he should say unto him.”

ܘܕܒܪܗ ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܠܥܠܝܡܐ ܘܐܥܠܗ ܠܘܬ ܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܩܪܢܝ ܘܒܥܐ ܡܢܝ ܕܐܝܬܐ ܗܢܐ ܥܠܝܡܐ ܠܘܬܟ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܡܕܡ ܕܢܐܡܪ ܠܟ
18 And the Qentruna {the Centurion/the Captain of a hundred} took the boy, and brought him unto the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand}, and said, “Paulus {Paul} the prisoner called me, and sought from me that I should bring this boy unto you, that there is for you something that he should say unto you.”

ܘܐܚܕܗ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܠܥܠܝܡܐ ܘܢܓܕܗ ܠܚܕ ܓܒܐ ܘܡܫܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܕܡܢܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܟ ܕܬܐܡܪ ܠܝ
19 And the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand} took hold of the boy by the hand, and led him to one side, and asked him, “What is there for you that you should say unto me?”

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܥܠܝܡܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܬܚܫܒܘ ܕܢܒܥܘܢ ܡܢܟ ܕܬܚܬ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܡܚܪ ܠܟܢܫܗܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܨܒܝܢ ܡܕܡ ܝܬܝܪ ܕܢܐܠܦܘܢ ܡܢܗ
20 And the layma {the young man} said unto him, “The Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} have planned that they will request from you that you bring down Paulus {Paul} unto the gathering tomorrow, so as they are desiring that they should learn something more from him.

ܐܢܬ ܗܟܝܠ ܠܐ ܬܬܛܦܝܣ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܓܒܪܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܢܛܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܒܟܡܐܢܐ ܘܐܚܪܡܘ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܐܟܠܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܢܫܬܘܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܩܛܠܘܢܗܝ ܘܗܐ ܡܛܝܒܝܢ ܘܡܩܘܝܢ ܠܫܘܘܕܝܟ
21 You therefore, do not be persuaded, for, look! More than forty men from them watch for him in ambush, and have vowed concerning their souls that they will not eat and not drink until that they should kill him! And look! They are ready, and they wait for your promise.”

ܘܫܪܝܗܝ ܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܠܥܠܝܡܐ ܟܕ ܦܩܕܗ ܕܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܢܕܥ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܒܕܩܬ ܠܝ
22 And the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand} dismissed the boy, after he commanded him: “No man is to know of these things which you have made known unto me.”

ܘܩܪܐ ܠܬܪܝܢ ܩܢܛܪܘܢܝܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܠܘ ܥܬܕܘ ܪܗܘܡܝܐ ܡܐܬܝܢ ܕܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܠܩܣܪܝܐ ܘܦܪܫܐ ܫܒܥܝܢ ܘܫܕܝܝ ܒܝܡܝܢܐ ܡܐܬܝܢ ܕܢܦܩܘܢ ܡܢ ܬܠܬ ܫܥܝܢ ܒܠܠܝܐ
23 And he called two Qentrune {Centurions/Captains of a hundred}, and said unto them, “Go! Prepare two-hundred Ruhmaye {Romans} so that they should go unto Qasariya {Caesarea}; and seventy horsemen, and two-hundred throwers with the right hand, so that they should go out from the third hour {i.e. 9 pm} in the night,

ܛܝܒܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܒܥܝܪܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܪܟܒܘܢܗ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܢܦܠܛܘܢܝܗܝ ܠܘܬ ܦܝܠܟܣ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ
24 then, also prepare a beast, as they shall mount Paulus {Paul} upon it and deliver him unto Philiks {Felix}, The Higmuna {The Governor}.”

ܘܟܬܒ ܐܓܪܬܐ ܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܗܟܢܐ
25 And he wrote a letter, giving it unto them. That which in it was thus:

ܩܠܘܕܝܘܣ ܠܘܣܝܘܣ ܠܦܝܠܟܣ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܢܨܝܚܐ ܫܠܡ
26 “Qludius {Claudius} Lusius {Lysias}, unto the illustrious Philiks {Felix}, the Higmuna {the Governor}: Shlam {Peace}.

27 This man, the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews} had seized, so as that they should kill him, and I arose with the Ruhmaye {the Romans} and rescued him, after I learned that he is a Ruhmaya {a Roman}.

ܘܟܕ ܒܥܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܠܡܕܥ ܥܠܬܐ ܕܡܛܠܬܗ ܪܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܐܚܬܬܗ ܠܟܢܫܗܘܢ
28 And when I had sought to determine the cause on which account they were accusing him; I lead him down unto their gathering,

ܘܐܫܟܚܬ ܕܥܠ ܙܐܛܡܐ ܕܢܡܘܣܗܘܢ ܪܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܘܥܠܬܐ ܕܫܘܝܐ ܠܐܣܘܪܐ ܐܘ ܠܡܘܬܐ ܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܬܗ
29 and I found that upon investigation, that he was reproached because of their Namusa {Law}, and a crime which deserves chains, or death, wasn’t against him.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܒܕܩ ܠܝ ܢܟܠܐ ܒܟܡܐܢܐ ܕܥܒܕܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܡܚܕܐ ܫܕܪܬܗ ܠܘܬܟ ܘܦܩܕܬ ܠܩܛܓܪܢܘܗܝ ܕܢܐܬܘܢ ܘܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܥܡܗ ܩܕܡܝܟ ܗܘܝ ܚܠܝܡ
30 And when it was made known unto me the deceit by ambush, which the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} were preparing against him, I sent him at once unto you, and commanded his accusers that they should come, and should speak with him before you. Be strong!”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܪܗܘܡܝܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܬܦܩܕܘ ܕܒܪܘܗܝ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܘܐܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܠܐܢܛܝܦܛܪܘܣ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
31 Then, the Ruhmaye {the Romans}, as that they had been commanded, led Paulus {Paul} by night, and brought him unto Antipatrus city.

ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܫܪܘ ܦܪܫܐ ܠܪܓܠܐ ܚܒܪܝܗܘܢ ܕܢܗܦܟܘܢ ܠܡܫܪܝܬܐ
32 And the next day the horsemen dismissed the foot-soldiers, their comrades, so that they might return unto the Mashriytha {the Fortress}.

ܘܐܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܠܩܣܪܝܐ ܘܝܗܒܘ ܐܓܪܬܐ ܠܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܘܐܩܝܡܘܗܝ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ
33 And they came unto Qasariya {Caesarea}, and gave the letter unto The Higmuna {The Governor}, and they stood Paulus {Paul} before him.

ܘܟܕ ܩܪܐ ܐܓܪܬܐ ܡܫܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܕܡܢ ܐܝܕܐ ܗܘ ܦܪܟܝܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܘܟܕ ܝܠܦ ܕܡܢ ܩܝܠܝܩܝܐ
34 And after he had read the letter, he asked him from which province he was. And when he learned that he was from Qiliqia {Cilicia},

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܡܐ ܕܐܬܘ ܩܛܓܪܢܝܟ ܘܦܩܕ ܕܢܛܪܘܢܗ ܒܦܪܛܘܪܝܢ ܕܗܪܘܕܣ
35 he said unto him, “I shall hear you when your accusers come.” And he commanded that he should be guarded in The Judgment Hall of Herudes {Herod}.


Chapter 24
ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܚܡܫܐ ܢܚܬ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܥܡ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܥܡ ܛܪܛܠܘܣ ܪܗܛܪܐ ܘܐܘܕܥ ܠܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܥܠ ܦܘܠܘܣ
1 And after five days, KhananYa {Ananias}, the Rab Kahne {the Priest’s Chief} came down with the Qashishe {the Elders}, and with Tertulus the Orator, and informed the Higmuna {the Governor} about Paulus {Paul}.

2 And when he was called, Tertulus was progressively accusing him, and said, “We have dwelt in the abundance of much tranquility because of you, and many good things have been for this Ama {People} by your burdensome effort.

ܘܟܠܢ ܒܟܠ ܕܘܟܐ ܡܩܒܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܛܝܒܘܬܟ ܢܨܝܚܐ ܦܝܠܟܣ
3 And all, in every place, we are receiving your beneficence, illustrious Philiks {Felix}.

ܕܠܐ ܕܝܢ ܢܠܐܝܟ ܒܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܟ ܕܬܫܡܥ ܠܡܟܝܟܘܬܢ ܒܦܣܝܩܬܐ
4 But, not to weary you with many things, we humbly request from you that you listen to us, in brevity.

ܐܫܟܚܢ ܓܝܪ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܡܫܚܛܢܐ ܘܡܥܝܪ ܫܓܘܫܝܐ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܒܟܠܗ ܐܪܥܐ ܪܫܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܕܢܨܪܝܐ
5 For, we have found this gabra {man}, that he is a corrupter, and he stirs up disturbance for all the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} who are in all the Earth, for, he is the risha {the head} of The Yulphana {The Teaching} of The Natsraye {The Nazarenes}.

ܘܠܗܝܟܠܢ ܨܒܐ ܠܡܣܝܒܘ ܘܟܕ ܐܚܕܢܝܗܝ ܒܥܝܢ ܕܢܕܘܢܝܘܗܝ ܐܝܟ ܕܒܢܡܘܣܢ
6 And he desired to defile Hayklan {our Temple}, and after we took hold of him, we sought to judge him according to that which is in our Law.

ܐܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܘܣܝܘܣ ܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܘܒܩܛܝܪܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܕܝܢ ܐܥܕܝܗ ܘܠܟ ܫܕܪܗ
7 Then, Lusius {Lysias} the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand} came, and with much force took him from our hands, and sent him unto you,

ܘܦܩܕ ܠܩܛܓܪܢܘܗܝ ܕܢܐܬܘܢ ܠܘܬܟ ܘܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܬ ܟܕ ܡܫܐܠ ܐܢܬ ܠܗ ܕܬܐܠܦ ܡܢܗ ܥܠ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܡܩܛܪܓܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܗ
8 and he commanded for his accusers that they should come unto you. And after you are able to question him, you will learn from him concerning all these things which we are accusing him.”

ܐܪܝܒܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܦ ܗܢܘܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܢܝܢ
9 Then, they, the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews}, also complained aloud, while saying that these things they were so.

ܘܪܡܙ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܢܡܠܠ ܘܥܢܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢ ܫܢܝܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܝܬܟ ܕܝܢܐ ܕܥܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܚܕܝܐܝܬ ܢܦܩ ܐܢܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܥܠ ܐܦܝ ܢܦܫܝ
10 And the Higmuna {the Governor} signaled unto Paulus {Paul} that he should speak, and Paulus {Paul} responded, and said, “From many years I know that you have been The Dayana {The Judge} of this Ama {People}, and because of this, I gladly send out a defense {lit. a breath} for the sake of my own soul,

ܟܕ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܬ ܠܡܕܥ ܕܠܝܬ ܠܝ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܬܪܥܣܪ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܕܣܠܩܬ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܠܡܣܓܕ
11 while you are able to know, that it has not been for me more than twelve days, that I went up unto Urishlem {Jerusalem} to worship.

ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘܢܝ ܕܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܐ ܥܡ ܐܢܫ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܐܦ ܠܐ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܟܢܫ ܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܗܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ
12 And they didn’t find that I was speaking with a nash {a man} in The Haykla {The Temple}, and also not even did I gather a Kensha {an Assembly}; not in Kenushthhun {their Synagogue}, and not in the Madintha {the city}.

ܘܠܐ ܕܢܚܘܘܢ ܡܛܝܐ ܒܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܩܕܡܝܟ ܥܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܗܫܐ ܡܩܛܪܓܝܢ ܠܝ
13 And neither can they show, delivering with their hands before you, concerning a thing of which they now are accusing me for.

ܒܪܡ ܕܝܢ ܗܕܐ ܡܘܕܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܒܗ ܒܗܢܐ ܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܒܗ ܦܠܚ ܐܢܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܒܗܝ ܟܕ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܠܗܝܢ ܕܟܬܝܒܢ ܒܢܡܘܣܐ ܘܒܢܒܝܐ
14 But, however, I do confess this: That in this Yulphana {Teaching} which they mention; in it I work for The Alaha {The God} of abahay {my fathers}, while I am believing all things which are written in The Namusa {The Law} and in The Nabiye {The Prophets},

ܘܟܕ ܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܣܒܪܐ ܥܠ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܦ ܗܢܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܣܒܪܝܢ ܕܥܬܝܕܐ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܩܝܡܬܐ ܕܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܕܟܐܢܐ ܘܕܥܘܠܐ
15 and where there is for me Masabryin {The Hope} concerning Alaha {God}, that which they also are expecting these things : That there is to be a future Resurrection from the place of the dead; of the Righteous and of the wicked.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܦ ܥܡܠ ܐܢܐ ܕܬܐܪܬܐ ܕܟܝܬܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܠܝ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܩܕܡ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܐܡܝܢܐܝܬ
16 Because of this, I also labor, so that there should be a pure conscience for me before Alaha {God}, and before the sons of nasha {men}; constantly.

ܠܫܢܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܣܓܝܐܢ ܐܬܝܬ ܠܘܬ ܒܢܝ ܥܡܐ ܕܝܠܝ ܕܐܬܠ ܙܕܩܬܐ ܘܐܩܪܒ ܩܘܪܒܢܐ
17 Then, after many years I came unto the sons of my own Ama {People}, so that I should give Zedqtha {Alms}, and bring Qurbana {a Sacrifice}.

ܘܐܫܟܚܘܢܝ ܗܠܝܢ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܟܕ ܡܕܟܝ ܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܥܡ ܟܢܫܐ ܘܐܦ ܠܐ ܒܫܓܘܫܝܐ
18 And these found me in The Haykla {The Temple}, where I had been purified; not in a Kensha {an Assembly}; and also not with a disturbance.

ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܕܫܓܫܘ ܐܢܫܝܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܐܬܘ ܡܢ ܐܣܝܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܩܘܡܘܢ ܥܡܝ ܩܕܡܝܟ ܘܢܩܛܪܓܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ
19 But, if there was a disturbance, that it is fitting that these Yehudaye {Judeans/Jews} who came from Asia {i.e. Asia-Minor}; that they should stand with me before you, and should accuse me of the thing which is of interest unto them.

ܐܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܒܝ ܣܟܠܘܬܐ ܟܕ ܩܡܬ ܩܕܡ ܟܢܫܗܘܢ
20 Or, these themselves should speak what error they had found in me, when I stood before their Kenshun {their Assembly},

ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܗܕܐ ܚܕܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܩܥܝܬ ܟܕ ܩܐܡ ܐܢܐ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ ܕܥܠ ܩܝܡܬܐ ܕܡܝܬܐ ܡܬܬܕܝܢ ܐܢܐ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܩܕܡܝܟܘܢ
21 unless, if it was this one statement which I cried out while I was standing in their midst, that, ‘Concerning The Resurrection of the dead, I am being judged today before you!’”

ܦܝܠܟܣ ܕܝܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܠܐܘܪܚܐ ܗܕܐ ܡܠܝܐܝܬ ܬܗܝ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܕܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܫܡܥ ܐܢܐ ܒܝܢܬܟܘܢ
22 Then, Philiks {Felix}, on account that he knew this Way fully, delayed them, while saying, “When the Kiliarka {the Captain of a thousand} has come, I will listen between you.”

ܘܦܩܕ ܠܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܕܢܛܪܝܘܗܝ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܒܢܝܚܐ ܘܕܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܢ ܝܕܘܥܘܗܝ ܢܬܟܠܐ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܡܫܡܫ ܠܗ
23 And he commanded the Qentruna {the Captain of a hundred} that he should guard Paulus {Paul} quietly, and that no nash {man} from his friends should be restrained to minister unto him.

ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܩܠܝܠ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܫܕܪ ܦܝܠܟܣ ܘܕܘܪܣܠܐ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܕܐܝܬܝܗ ܗܘܬ ܝܗܘܕܝܬܐ ܘܩܪܘ ܠܗ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܫܡܥܘ ܡܢܗ ܥܠ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ
24 And from after a few days, Philiks {Felix} and Dursila, his wife, who was a Yehudaytha {a Jewess}, called for Paulus {Paul}, and heard from him concerning The Haymanutha d’Meshikha {The Faith of The Anointed One}.

ܘܟܕ ܡܡܠܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܥܠ ܙܕܝܩܘܬܐ ܘܥܠ ܩܕܝܫܘܬܐ ܘܥܠ ܕܝܢܐ ܕܥܬܝܕ ܐܬܡܠܝ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܦܝܠܟܣ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܗܫܐ ܙܠ ܘܐܡܬܝ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܠܝ ܐܬܪܐ ܐܫܕܪ ܒܬܪܟ
25 And while he was speaking with them concerning Zadiyqutha {Righteousness}, and concerning Qadishutha {Holiness/Sanctification}, and concerning The Dina {The Judgment} which is prepared; Philiks {Felix} was full of fear, and said, “Go away now, and when there should be an opportunity for me, I will send after you.”

ܣܒܪ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܫܘܚܕܐ ܡܬܝܗܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܡܛܠ ܗܕܐ ܐܦ ܐܡܝܢܐܝܬ ܡܫܕܪ ܗܘܐ ܡܝܬܐ ܠܗ ܘܡܡܠܠ ܥܡܗ
26 For, he was hoping that a bribe might be given unto him from Paulus {Paul}. On account of this, he also constantly sent to bring him and to speak with him.

ܘܟܕ ܡܠܝ ܠܗ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܐܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܕܘܟܬܗ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܦܪܩܝܘܣ ܦܗܣܛܘܣ ܦܝܠܟܣ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܥܒܕ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܒܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܫܒܩܗ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܟܕ ܐܣܝܪ
27 And when two years were fulfilled for him, another Higmuna {Governor} who was called Parqius Phihstus {Porcius Festus} came to his place {i.e. his Office}. But, Philiks {Felix}, so as that he should perform a favor unto the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews}, left Paulus {Paul} while he was bound.

Chapter 25
ܘܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܦܗܣܛܘܣ ܠܩܣܪܝܐ ܒܬܪ ܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܣܠܩ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
1 And when Phihstus {Festus} came unto Qasariya {Caesarea}, after three days he went up unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}.

ܘܐܘܕܥܘܗܝ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܪܫܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܥܠ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗ
2 And the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs}, and the Rishe {the Heads/the Leaders} of the Yehudaye { the Judeans/Jews}, informed him about Paulus {Paul}, and they were seeking from him,

ܟܕ ܫܐܠܝܢ ܠܗ ܗܕܐ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܕܢܫܕܪ ܢܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܟܕ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܡܐܢܐ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܢܩܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ
3 where they had asked him this favor: That he should dispatch him to come unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}, while they should perform an ambush on the road, so that they might kill him.

ܘܦܗܣܛܘܣ ܦܢܝ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܕܦܘܠܘܣ ܡܬܢܛܪ ܒܩܣܪܝܐ ܘܐܢܐ ܡܣܪܗܒ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܚܙܘܩ
4 And Phihstus {Festus} returned word, that “Paulus {Paul} will be kept in Qasariya {Caesarea}, and I hasten that I should depart.

ܐܝܠܝܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܟܘܢ ܕܡܛܝܐ ܒܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܢܚܬܘܢ ܥܡܢ ܘܥܠ ܟܠ ܣܟܠܘ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܒܓܒܪܐ ܢܩܛܪܓܘܢ
5 Therefore, those which are among you, who have come with their arms, should go down with us, and concerning every wrong-doing which is in the gabra { the man }; they shall accuse.”

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܬܡܢܝܐ ܐܘ ܥܣܪܐ ܢܚܬ ܠܗ ܠܩܣܪܝܐ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܝܬܒ ܥܠ ܒܝܡ ܘܦܩܕ ܕܢܝܬܘܢ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ
6 And after he was there eight days, or ten, he went down unto Qasariya {Caesarea}, and the next day he sat upon The Judgment-Seat, and commanded that they should bring Paulus {Paul}.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܚܕܪܘܗܝ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܢܚܬܘ ܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܪܫܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܩܫܝܐ ܡܝܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܢܚܘܘܢ
7 And after he came, the Yehudaye { the Judeans/Jews} who had come down from Urishlem {Jerusalem} surrounded him, and their Rishe {their Chiefs} brought many and harsh charges against him, those which they were not able to show,

ܘܟܕ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܢܦܩ ܗܘܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܠܐ ܐܣܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܒܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܠܐ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܠܐ ܒܩܣܪ
8 and afterwards, Paulus {Paul} made a defense {lit. sent forth a breath}: “I have not done a thing wrong; not in The Namusa {The Law} of the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews}, and neither in The Haykla {The Temple}; and neither with Qasar {Caesar}!”

ܦܗܣܛܘܣ ܕܝܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܪܫܐ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܒܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܕܬܣܩ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܬܡܢ ܥܠ ܗܠܝܢ ܬܬܕܝܢ ܩܕܡܝ
9 But, Phihstus {Festus}, on account that he desired to confer a favor with the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews}, said unto Paulus {Paul}, “Do you desire to go up unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and there be judged before me, concerning these things?”

ܥܢܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܐܡܪ ܥܠ ܒܝܡ ܕܩܣܪ ܩܐܡ ܐܢܐ ܗܪܟܐ ܗܘ ܙܕܩ ܠܝ ܠܡܬܬܕܢܘ ܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܚܛܝܬ ܠܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܦ ܐܢܬ ܝܬܝܪ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܬ
10 Paulus {Paul} answered, and said, “At The Judgment-Seat of Qasar {Caesar} I shall stand. Here it is proper for me to be judged. Not a thing have I sinned towards the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews}, as which you also know well.

ܘܐܢ ܣܟܠܘܬܐ ܥܒܝܕܐ ܠܝ ܐܘ ܡܕܡ ܕܫܘܐ ܠܡܘܬܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܬܐܠ ܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܡܘܬܐ ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܝܬ ܨܐܕܝ ܡܕܡ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܡܩܛܪܓܝܢ ܠܝ ܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܝܗܒ ܠܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܘܗܒܬ ܒܓܢܘܗܝ ܕܩܣܪ ܩܪܐ ܐܢܐ
11 And if I have done wrong, or something worthy for death, I will not be excused from death. Yet, if there isn’t something against me, from these who are accusing me, to no nash {man} do I give myself for a gift. I call for an appeal to Qasar {Caesar}!”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܦܗܣܛܘܣ ܡܠܠ ܥܡ ܒܢܝ ܡܠܟܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܒܓܢ ܩܣܪ ܩܪܝܬ ܠܘܬ ܩܣܪ ܐܙܠ ܐܢܬ
12 Then Phihstus {Festus} spoke with the sons of Melkeh {his Council}, and ordered; “You have called for Qasar’s {Caesar’s} appeal; unto Qasar {Caesar} you shall go!”

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܘ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܢܚܬ ܐܓܪܦܘܣ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܒܪܢܝܩܐ ܠܩܣܪܝܐ ܕܢܫܐܠܘܢ ܫܠܡܗ ܕܦܗܣܛܘܣ
13 And after some days had passed, Agripus {Agrippa} the Malka {the King}, and Berniqi {Bernice} came down unto Qasariya {Caesarea}, so that they might ask for the peace of Phihstus {Festus}.

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܐܫܬܥܝ ܦܗܣܛܘܣ ܠܡܠܟܐ ܕܝܢܗ ܕܦܘܠܘܣ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܐܫܬܒܩ ܡܢ ܐܝܕܝ ܦܝܠܟܣ
14 And after they were with him some days, Phihstus {Festus} related the judgment of Paulus {Paul} unto the Malka {the King}, where he said, “A certain gabra {man}, a prisoner, has been left from Philik’s {Felix’s} hand.

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܝܬ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܐܘܕܥܘ ܠܝ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܒܥܘ ܕܐܥܒܕ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܝܢܐ ܡܢܗ
15 And when I was in Urishlem {Jerusalem}, the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs} and the Qashishe {the Elders} of the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews} made known unto me concerning him, and they sought from me that I should perform judgment for them.

ܘܐܡܪܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܠܝܬ ܥܝܕܐ ܠܪܗܘܡܝܐ ܕܢܬܠܘܢ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܡܘܗܒܬ ܠܩܛܠܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܒܥܠ ܕܝܢܗ ܘܢܟܣܝܘܗܝ ܒܐܦܘܗܝ ܘܢܬܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܐܬܪܐ ܠܡܦܩ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܥܠ ܡܐ ܕܡܬܪܫܐ
16 And I said unto them that it wasn’t the custom of Ruhmaye {Romans} that they should give a bar-nasha {a son of man} as a gift to be killed, until there should be brought his adversary {lit. his master of judgment}, and he should accuse him to his face, and to give him an opportunity for a defense {lit. a sending-forth of breath}, concerning that which he is accused.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܝܬ ܠܟܐ ܕܠܐ ܬܘܗܝܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܝܬܒܬ ܥܠ ܒܝܡ ܘܦܩܕܬ ܕܢܝܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܠܝ ܠܓܒܪܐ
17 And when I had come here, the next day without delay, I sat upon The Judgment-Seat, and commanded that the gabra {the man} should be brought unto me.

ܘܩܡܘ ܥܡܗ ܩܛܓܪܢܘܗܝ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܡܕܡ ܪܫܝܢܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܕܢܚܘܘܢ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܣܒܪ ܗܘܝܬ
18 And his accusers stood up with him, and were not able to show an evil reproach against him; as which I had expected,

ܙܛܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܕܡ ܡܕܡ ܥܠ ܕܚܠܬܗܘܢ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢܫ ܕܡܝܬ ܗܘ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܚܝ ܗܘ
19 but, they had certain things against him; charges that were about their religion, and concerning Eshu {Y’shu}, a nash { a man } who had died, He of whom Paulus {Paul} was saying that He is alive.

ܘܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܩܐܡ ܗܘܝܬ ܐܢܐ ܥܠ ܒܥܬܐ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪܬ ܗܘܝܬ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܐܢ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܬ ܕܬܐܙܠ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܬܡܢ ܬܬܕܝܢ ܥܠ ܗܠܝܢ
20 And on account that I wasn’t certain concerning these inquiries, I said unto Paulus {Paul}: ‘Do you wish that you should go unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and there to be judged, concerning these things?’

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܒܥܐ ܕܢܬܢܛܪ ܠܕܝܢܗ ܕܩܣܪ ܘܦܩܕܬ ܕܢܬܢܛܪ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܫܕܪܝܘܗܝ ܠܘܬ ܩܣܪ
21 Yet, he requested that he should be kept for The Judgment of Qasar {Caesar}, and I commanded that he be kept until I should dispatch him unto Qasar {Caesar i.e. Nero}.”

ܘܐܡܪ ܐܓܪܦܘܣ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܕܐܫܡܥܝܘܗܝ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܦܗܣܛܘܣ ܐܡܪ ܕܠܡܚܪ ܫܡܥ ܐܢܬ ܠܗ
22 And Agripus {Agrippa} said, “I desire that I should hear this gabra {man}.” And Phihstus {Festus} said, “Tomorrow you will hear him.”

ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܬܐ ܐܓܪܦܘܣ ܘܒܪܢܝܩܐ ܒܙܘܚܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܥܠ ܠܒܝܬ ܕܝܢܐ ܥܡ ܟܝܠܝܪܟܐ ܘܪܫܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܦܩܕ ܦܗܣܛܘܣ ܘܐܬܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ
23 And the next day, Agripus {Agrippa} and Berniqi {Bernice} came with a large procession. And they entered The House of Judgment with the Kiliarke {the Captains of a thousand} and the Rishe {the Heads/ the Leaders} of the city. And Phihstus {Festus} commanded, and Paulus {Paul} came.

ܘܐܡܪ ܦܗܣܛܘܣ ܐܓܪܦܘܣ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܟܠܟܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܐܝܬܝܟܘܢ ܥܡܢ ܥܠ ܗܢܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܩܒܠܢܝ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܗܪܟܐ ܟܕ ܩܥܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܬܘܒ ܘܠܐ ܠܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܕܢܚܐ
24 And Phihstus {Festus} said, “King Agripus {Agrippa}, and all gabre {men} who are with us: Concerning this gabra {man} whom you see, all the Ama d’Yehudaye {the People of the Judeans/Jews} complained unto me, in Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and here, where they were crying out, that ‘ it is no longer fitting for this one that he should live !’

25 But, I ascertained that he had done nothing worthy to die for. And on account that he requested that he should be kept for The Judgment of Q a sar {Caesar}, I commanded that he should be sent.

ܘܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܐ ܐܟܬܘܒ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܠܩܣܪ ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܨܒܝܬ ܠܡܝܬܝܘܬܗ

26 And not knowing what I should write unto Qasar {Caesar} concerning him, on this account I have desired to bring him before you, and especially before you, Malka Agripe {King Agrippa}, so that when this judgment is inquired of, I shall find out what I shall write,

ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܘܠܐ ܕܟܕ ܡܫܕܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܟܬܘܒ ܣܟܠܘܬܗ
27 for, it isn’t proper that when we should send a bound man, that we shall not register his wrong-doing.

Chapter 26

1 And Agripus {Agrippa} said unto Paulus {Paul}, “You are permitted to speak for the sake of your soul.” Then, Paulus {Paul} stretched out his hand, and made a defense {lit. sent forth a breath}, and said,

ܥܠ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܡܬܪܫܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܓܪܦܐ ܣܒܪ ܐܢܐ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܝ ܕܛܘܒܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܩܕܡܝܟ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܢܦܩ ܐܢܐ ܪܘܚܐ
2 “Concerning all of which I am accused of from the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews}, Malka Agripe {King Agrippa}, concerning myself, I consider that I am blessed, that before you I should make a defense {lit. send forth a breath} this day.

3 I, who especially know, that you are persuaded in all the questions and laws of the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews}. Because of this, I request from you that with patience {lit. a long-suffering spirit}, you would hear me.

4 For, the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews}, they also know (if they desired that they should testify) my customs which are from my youth, which were mine from the beginning, among Ami {my People}, and at Urishlem {Jerusalem},

ܡܛܠ ܕܡܢ ܢܘܓܪܐ ܡܦܣܝܢ ܒܝ ܘܝܕܥܝܢ ܕܒܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܪܫܝܐ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܚܝܝܬ
5 on account, that from a long time they were satisfied with me, and they know that in the best teaching of the Phrishe {the Pharisees}, I had lived.

ܘܗܫܐ ܥܠ ܣܒܪܐ ܕܫܘܘܕܝܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܒܗܬܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܩܐܡ ܐܢܐ ܘܡܬܬܕܝܢ ܐܢܐ
6 And now, upon The Sabra {The Hope} of The Shudaya {The Promise} which was made unto our fathers, from Alaha {God}, I stand, and am being judged.

7 Which, concerning this Sabra {Hope}, our Twelve Tribes are hoping that it will arrive, with diligent prayers, of the daytime and of the night. And concerning this very Sabra {Hope}, I am being reproached from the hands of the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews}, Malka Agripe {King Agrippa}.

ܡܢܐ ܕܝܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܘܠܐ ܕܢܗܝܡܢ ܕܡܩܝܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܝܬܐ

10 This which I also did in Urishlem {Jerusalem}, and I cast many Qadishe {Holy Ones} in the prisoner’s house, with the authority which I had received from the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs}, and when those from them were killed, I was a partner for those who condemned them.

ܘܒܟܠ ܟܢܘܫܐ ܡܫܬܢܕ ܗܘܝܬ ܒܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܐܠܨ ܗܘܝܬ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܡܓܕܦܝܢ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܘܒܪܘܓܙܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܕܡܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܦ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܢܦܩ ܗܘܝܬ ܠܡܪܕܦ ܐܢܘܢ
11 And in every Kenusha {Synagogue} I was abusive with them, while I compelled them that they should be speaking against The Name of Eshu {Y’shu}. And I was filled with much wrath against them; even unto other cities I was going forth to persecute them.

ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠ ܗܘܝܬ ܡܛܠ ܗܕܐ ܠܕܪܡܣܘܩ ܒܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܘܒܡܦܣܢܘܬܐ ܕܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ
12 And on this account, while I was going unto Darmsuq {Damascus}, with the authority and with the permission of the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs},

ܒܦܠܓܗ ܕܝܘܡܐ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܚܙܝܬ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܐܘ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܐܙܠܓ ܥܠܝ ܘܥܠ ܟܠ ܕܥܡܝ ܗܘܘ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܕܡܝܬܪ ܡܢ ܕܫܡܫܐ
13 in the middle of the day, in the road, I saw from the Shmaya {the Heavens}, O Malka {O King}, that there shone upon me, and upon all who were with me, a Light which was more abundant than of the shemsha {the sun} !

ܘܢܦܠܢ ܟܠܢ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܘܫܡܥܬ ܩܠܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܥܒܪܐܝܬ ܫܐܘܠ ܫܐܘܠ ܡܢܐ ܪܕܦ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ ܩܫܐ ܗܘ ܠܟ ܠܡܒܥܛܘ ܠܥܘܩܣܐ
14 And we all fell to the ground, and I heard a voice, while saying unto me in Ebraith {the Hebrew’s language, i.e. Aramaic} : ‘Shaul {Saul}! Shaul {Saul}! Why do you persecute Me? It is hard for you to kick the goads!’

ܘܐܢܐ ܐܡܪܬ ܡܢ ܐܢܬ ܡܪܝ ܘܡܪܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܐܢܐ ܗܘ ܝܫܘܥ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܕܐܢܬ ܪܕܦ ܐܢܬ
15 And I said: ‘Who are you Mari {My Lord}?’ And Maran {Our Lord} said unto me: “I am Eshu Natsraya {Y’shu, the Nazarene}, whom you are persecuting!’

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܩܘܡ ܥܠ ܪܓܠܝܟ ܡܛܠ ܗܕܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܐܬܚܙܝܬ ܠܟ ܕܐܩܝܡܟ ܡܫܡܫܢܐ ܘܣܗܕܐ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܚܙܝܬܢܝ ܘܕܥܬܝܕ ܐܢܬ ܕܬܚܙܝܢܝ
16 And He said unto me: “Rise up on your feet, for, it is because of this I have appeared unto you; that I should establish you a Mashamshana {a Minister} and a Sahda {a Witness/a Martyr} of the thing which you have seen of Me, and which is destined that you will see of Me.

ܘܐܦܨܝܟ ܡܢ ܥܡܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܡܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܡܫܕܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ
17 And I will deliver you from the Ama d’Yehudaye {the People of the Judeans/Jews}, and from the other Amme {Peoples/Nations}, unto whom I am sending you unto,

ܕܬܦܬܚ ܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܗܦܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܚܫܘܟܐ ܠܢܗܝܪܐ ܘܡܢ ܫܘܠܛܢܗ ܕܣܛܢܐ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܢܩܒܠܘܢ ܫܘܒܩܢ ܚܛܗܐ ܘܦܣܐ ܥܡ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܒܝ
18 so that their eyes might be opened, that they might turn from darkness, unto The Light, and from the power of satana, unto Alaha {God}, and should receive forgiveness of sins, and a part with The Qadishe {The Holy Ones}, in The Haymanutha {The Faith} which is in Me.’

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܓܪܦܐ ܠܐ ܩܡܬ ܒܚܪܝܢܐ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܚܙܘܐ ܫܡܝܢܐ
19 Because of this, Malka Agripe {King Agrippa}, I didn’t stand in contention to oppose the Heavenly vision,

ܐܠܐ ܐܟܪܙܬ ܡܢ ܠܩܘܕܡܝܢ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܒܕܪܡܣܘܩ ܘܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܕܒܟܠܗܝܢ ܩܘܪܝܐ ܕܝܗܘܕ ܘܐܦ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܐܟܪܙܬ ܕܢܬܘܒܘܢ ܘܢܬܦܢܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܢܥܒܕܘܢ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܫܘܝܢ ܠܬܝܒܘܬܐ
20 but rather, from the first, I P roclaimed unto those who were in Darmsuq {Damascus}, and unto those who were in Urishlem {Jerusalem}, all who were of the villages of Yehud {Judea}, and I even P roclaimed unto the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn unto Alaha {God}, and they should perform deeds which are worthy for penitence.

ܘܥܠ ܐܦܝ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܚܕܘܢܝ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܨܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܩܛܠܢܝ
21 And on account {lit. concerning the presence} of these things, t he Yehudaye { t he Judeans/Jews} took hold of me in The Haykla {The Temple}, and they were desiring to kill me,

ܥܕܪܢܝ ܕܝܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܗܐ ܩܐܡ ܐܢܐ ܘܡܣܗܕ ܐܢܐ ܠܙܥܘܪܐ ܘܠܪܒܐ ܟܕ ܡܕܡ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܘܫܐ ܘܢܒܝܐ ܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܕܥܬܝܕܢ ܕܢܗܘܝܢ
22 but, Alaha {God} aided me until this day, and look! I stand and I Testify unto the least and unto the greatest, while I do not speak a thing outside of Mushe {Moses} and the Nabiye {the Prophets}; but rather, those things which they said, which were destined to be:

ܕܢܚܫ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܕܢܗܘܐ ܪܫܝܬܐ ܕܩܝܡܬܐ ܕܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܕܥܬܝܕ ܕܢܟܪܙ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܠܥܡܐ ܘܠܥܡܡܐ
23 That Meshikha {The Anointed One} would suffer, and that He would be The Firstfruit of The Resurrection, that one from the place of the dead, and is destined that He would P roclaim Light unto the Ama {the People}, and unto the Amme {the Peoples/ t he Nations/Gentiles}!”

ܘܟܕ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܦܩ ܗܘܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܪܘܚܐ ܩܥܐ ܦܗܣܛܘܣ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܫܢܝܬ ܠܟ ܦܘܠܐ ܣܦܪܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܥܒܕܟ ܕܬܫܢܐ
24 And while Paulus {Paul} was thus making a defense {lit. sending forth a breath}, Phihstus {Festus} cried out in a loud voice, “You are insane, Paule {Pauli}! Many scrolls have made you insane!”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܠܐ ܫܢܝܬ ܢܨܝܚܐ ܦܗܣܛܘܣ ܐܠܐ ܡܠܝ ܫܪܪܐ ܘܬܩܢܘܬܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܐ
25 Paulus {Paul} said unto him, “I am not insane, illustrious Phihstus {Festus}, but rather, I speak the words of Truth and Integrity.

ܘܐܦ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܓܪܦܘܣ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܝܕܥ ܥܠܝܗܝܢ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܘܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܐ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܡܛܠ ܕܚܕܐ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܠܐ ܣܒܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܛܥܝܢ ܠܗ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܛܘܫܝܐ ܣܥܝܪܢ
26 And even Malka Agripus {King Agrippa} especially knows about these things, and because of this, I boldly {lit. with an open eye} speak before him, on account, that not one from these things, I suppose, have escaped his notice, for, they were not done secretly.

ܡܗܝܡܢ ܐܢܬ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܓܪܦܐ ܠܢܒܝܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܐܢܬ
27 Malka Agripe {King Agrippa}, do you believe The Nabiye {The Prophets}? I know that you believe!”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܓܪܦܘܣ ܒܩܠܝܠ ܡܕܡ ܡܦܝܣ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ ܕܐܗܘܐ ܟܪܣܛܝܢܐ
28 Malka Agripus {King Agrippa} said unto him, “You almost {lit. with a little} persuade me to be a Kristyana {a Christian}!”

ܘܦܘܠܘܣ ܐܡܪ ܒܥܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܩܠܝܠ ܘܒܣܓܝ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܡܥܝܢ ܠܝ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܐܟܘܬܝ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܐܣܘܪܐ ܗܠܝܢ
29 And Paulus {Paul} said, “I pray it be, from Alaha {God}, with a little and with much, not only you were, but also, for you all who are hearing me today, that you were just as me; except for these bonds!”

ܘܩܡ ܠܗ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܘܒܪܢܝܩܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܬܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗܘܢ
30 And the Malka {the King} arose, and the Higmuna {the Governor}, and Berniqi {Bernice}, and those who were seated with them.

ܘܟܕ ܦܪܩܘ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܕ ܥܡ ܚܕ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܫܘܐ ܠܡܘܬܐ ܐܘ ܠܐܣܘܪܐ ܠܐ ܥܒܕ ܓܒܪܐ ܗܢܐ
31 And after they departed from there, they were speaking one with the other, and saying, “This gabra {man} hasn’t done something worthy for death, or to be bound.”

ܘܐܡܪ ܐܓܪܦܘܣ ܠܦܗܣܛܘܣ ܡܫܟܚ ܗܘܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܢܫܬܪܐ ܐܠܘ ܒܓܢ ܩܣܪ ܠܐ ܩܪܐ
32 And Agripus {Agrippa} said unto Phihstus {Festus}, “This gabra {man} would have been able to be loosed if he hadn’t called for an appeal unto Qasar {Caesar}.”

Chapter 27
ܘܦܩܕ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܦܗܣܛܘܣ ܕܢܫܬܕܪ ܠܘܬ ܩܣܪ ܠܐܝܛܠܝܐ ܘܐܫܠܡܗ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܠܐܣܝܪܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܥܡܗ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܡܢ ܐܣܦܝܪ ܣܒܣܛܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܝܘܠܝܘܣ
1 And Phihstus {Festus} commanded concerning him that he should be sent unto Qasar {Caesar}; unto Italia {Italy}. And he delivered Paulus {Paul} and another prisoner with him, unto a certain gabra {man}, a Qentruna {a Centurion/a Captain of a hundred} from the Sebaste Troop, whose name was Yulius {Julius}.

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܬ ܕܢܪܕܐ ܢܚܬܢ ܠܐܠܦܐ ܕܐܝܬܝܗ ܗܘܬ ܡܢ ܐܕܪܡܢܛܘܣ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܙܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܕܐܣܝܐ ܘܥܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܢ ܠܐܠܦܐ ܐܪܣܛܪܟܘܣ ܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܕܡܢ ܬܣܠܘܢܝܩܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
2 And when it was, that we were to journey, we went down unto a ship which was from Adramnatus {Adramyttium} city, and we were going unto the region of Asia {i.e. Asia-minor}. And Aristarkus entered the ship with us, a Maqedunia {Macedonian} who was from Thesaluniqi {Thessalonica} city.

ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܡܛܝܢ ܠܨܝܕܢ ܘܐܬܚܫܚ ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܒܡܪܚܡܢܘܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܐܦܣ ܠܗ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܠܘܬ ܪܚܡܘܗܝ ܘܢܬܬܢܝܚ
3 And the next day, we came unto Tsaydan {Sidon}. And the Qentruna {the Centurion/the Captain of a hundred} treated Paulus {Paul} with mercy, and permitted that he could go unto his friends and be refreshed.

ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܪܕܝܢ ܘܡܛܠ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܣܩܘܒܠܢ ܗܘܝ ܐܬܟܪܟܢ ܥܠ ܩܘܦܪܘܣ
4 And from there we journeyed; and on account that the winds were contrary, we went around towards Quprus {Cyprus}.

ܘܥܒܪܢ ܝܡܐ ܕܩܝܠܝܩܝܐ ܘܕܦܡܦܘܠܝܐ ܘܡܛܝܢ ܠܡܘܪܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܠܘܩܝܐ
5 And we crossed The Sea of Qiliqia {Cilicia}, and of Pamphulia {Pamphylia}, and we came unto Mura {Myra}, a city of Luqia {Lycia}.

ܘܐܫܟܚ ܬܡܢ ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܐܠܦܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܟܣܢܕܪܝܐ ܕܐܙܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܐܝܛܠܝܐ ܘܐܘܬܒܢ ܒܗ
6 And the Qentruna {the Centurion/the Captain of a hundred} found there a ship from Aleksandria {Alexandria}, which was going unto Italia {Italy}, and set us in it.

ܘܡܛܠ ܕܝܩܝܪܐܝܬ ܪܕܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܝܘܡܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܠܡܚܣܢ ܡܛܝܢ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܩܢܝܕܘܣ ܓܙܪܬܐ ܘܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܫܒܩܐ ܗܘܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܬܪܝܨܐܝܬ ܐܬܟܪܟܢ ܥܠ ܩܪܛܐ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܣܠܡܘܢܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
7 And on account that for many days she journeyed with difficulty, we had scarcely arrived opposite unto Qnidus {Cnidus} island. And on account that the wind wouldn’t allow us that we could go straight, we circled around toward Qriti {Crete}, near Salmuni {Salmone} city.

ܘܠܡܚܣܢ ܟܕ ܪܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܚܕܪܝܗ ܡܛܝܢ ܠܕܘܟܬܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܠܡܐܢܐ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܘܩܪܝܒܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܗ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܠܐܣܐܐ
8 And when we had scarcely journeyed around it, we came unto the place which is called Mine Shaphire {The Beautiful Havens}, and was near unto the city, which is named Lasea.

ܘܗܘܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܙܒܢܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܥܒܪ ܐܦ ܝܘܡܐ ܕܨܘܡܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܩܢܛܐ ܕܢܪܕܐ ܐܢܫ ܒܝܡܐ ܘܡܠܟ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ
9 And we were there much time, until there passed also The Day of Tsuma {The Fast i.e. The Day of Atonement} of the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews}, and it was dangerous for a nash {a man} that they journey by sea. And Paulus {Paul} advised them,

ܘܐܡܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܒܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܘܒܚܘܣܪܢܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܗܘܝܐ ܡܪܕܝܬܢ ܠܘ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܕܡܘܒܠܗ ܕܐܠܦܢ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܕܢܦܫܬܢ ܕܝܠܢ
10 and said, “Gabre {Men}! I see that in difficulty and in great loss, we voyage; not of the cargo of our ship only, but also of our own souls!”

ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܩܘܒܪܢܝܛܐ ܘܠܡܪܗ ܕܐܠܦܐ ܫܡܥ ܗܘܐ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܡܠܘܗܝ ܕܦܘܠܘܣ
11 But, the Qentruna {the Centurion/the Captain of a hundred} listened more to the Quberniti {the Helmsman} and to the master of the ship, than the words of Paulus {Paul}.

ܘܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܥܗܢ ܗܘܐ ܗܘ ܠܡܐܢܐ ܠܡܣܬܝܘ ܒܗ ܣܬܘܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܢܢ ܨܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܢܪܕܐ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܘܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܕܢܡܢܥܘܢ ܘܢܣܬܘܢ ܒܠܡܐܢܐ ܚܕ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܒܩܪܛܐ ܘܡܬܩܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܦܘܢܟܣ ܘܚܐܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܬܝܡܢܐ
12 And because that harbor wasn’t suitable to weather the winter in, many from us desired that we should journey from there, and that if we were able, that we should arrive and winter in a certain harbor which there was in Qriti {Crete}, and was called Phuniks {Phenice}, and looked towards the south.

ܘܟܕ ܢܫܒܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܬܝܡܢܐ ܘܣܒܪܘ ܕܡܡܛܝܢ ܐܝܟ ܨܒܝܢܗܘܢ ܪܕܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܚܕܪܝ ܩܪܛܐ
13 And when the wind of the south had blown, and we were hoping that we might arrive as we desired; we journeyed around Qriti {Crete}.

ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܩܠܝܠ ܢܦܩ ܥܠܝܢ ܡܫܒܐ ܕܥܠܥܠܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܛܘܦܘܢܝܩܘܣ ܐܘܪܩܠܝܕܘܢ
14 And from shortly after, there came forth against us the wind of the storm which was called Tuphuniqus Euraqlidun {Typhoon Euroclydon},

ܘܐܬܚܛܦܬ ܐܠܦܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܬ ܕܬܩܘܡ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܪܘܚܐ ܘܝܗܒܢ ܠܐܝܕܐ ܕܗܝ
15 and the ship was seized, and wasn’t able to stand to oppose the wind, and unto which we gave her.

ܘܟܕ ܥܒܪܢ ܓܙܪܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܩܘܕܐ ܠܡܚܣܢ ܐܫܟܚܢ ܐܚܕܢ ܠܩܪܩܘܪܐ
16 And when we passed a certain island, which is called Quda {Cauda}, we were barely able to hold on to the skiff.

ܘܟܕ ܫܩܠܢܗ ܡܚܝܨܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܘܡܬܩܢܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܐܠܦܐ ܘܡܛܠ ܕܕܚܠܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܕܕܠܡܐ ܢܦܠ ܒܡܚܬܬܗ ܕܝܡܐ ܐܚܬܢܝܗܝ ܠܐܪܡܢܘܢ ܘܗܟܘܬ ܪܕܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ
17 And after we lifted it up, we tightened and restored the ship, and on account that we were fearing that perhaps we would fall in the descent of the sea, we lowered the foresail, and so journeyed.

ܘܟܕ ܩܡ ܠܗ ܥܠܝܢ ܟܝܡܘܢܐ ܩܫܝܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܫܕܝܢ ܡܐܢܝܢ ܒܝܡܐ
18 And while the hard storm rose against us, the next day we were throwing our goods into the sea.

ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܬܠܬܐ ܡܐܢܐ ܕܝܠܗ ܕܐܠܦܐ ܒܐܝܕܝܢ ܫܕܝܢ
19 And the third day, we threw out the ship’s own vessels, with our hands.

ܘܟܕ ܐܚܕ ܠܗ ܣܬܘܐ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܝܬܝܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܫܡܫܐ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܠܐ ܣܗܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܟܘܟܒܐ ܣܒܪܐ ܕܚܝܝܢ ܟܠ ܟܠܗ ܐܬܦܣܩ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ
20 And when the weather held for many days, and no sun was seen, and no moon, and no stars, all hope that we might live had come to an end for us.

ܘܟܕ ܐܢܫ ܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܡܣܬܝܒܪ ܗܘܐ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܡ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܠܘ ܐܬܛܦܝܣܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܓܒܪܐ ܠܐ ܪܕܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܡܢ ܩܪܛܐ ܘܡܬܚܣܟܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܡܢ ܚܘܣܪܢܐ ܘܡܢ ܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܗܢܐ
21 And when no nash {man} had been fed a thing, then Paulus {Paul} rose in their midst, and said, “If you had been reconciled unto me, gabre {men}, we would not have journeyed from Qriti {Crete}, and we would have been spared from loss, and from this trouble.

ܘܗܫܐ ܡܠܟ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܬܗܘܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܥܩܐ ܢܦܫܐ ܓܝܪ ܚܕܐ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܐܒܕܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܐܠܦܐ
22 And now I counsel that you should be without distress, for, not one soul from you will perish, but only the ship.

ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܝ ܓܝܪ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܗܢܐ ܡܠܐܟܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܕܕܝܠܗ ܐܢܐ ܘܠܗ ܦܠܚ ܐܢܐ
23 For, there appeared unto me in this night, The Malakeh d’Alaha {The Heavenly Messenger of God}; that One whose I am, and for whom I work.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠ ܦܘܠܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘ ܠܟ ܠܡܩܡ ܩܕܡ ܩܣܪ ܘܗܐ ܝܗܒ ܠܟ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܠܟܠ ܕܪܕܝܢ ܥܡܟ
24 And He said unto me, ‘Do not fear, Paulus {Paul}! It is destined for you to stand before Qasar {Caesar i.e. Nero}, and look! Alaha {God} has given a gift to you: all who are journeying with you!’

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܠܒܒܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܐܠܗܐ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܐܬܡܠܠ ܥܡܝ
25 Because of this, be encouraged, gabre {men}! For, I believe in Alaha {God}, that thus it will be according to what He spoke with me.

ܒܪܡ ܠܓܙܪܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܕܢܫܬܕܐ
26 Nevertheless, unto a certain island, we are to be cast.”

ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܐܪܒܬܥܣܪ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܕܛܥܝܢ ܘܐܬܛܪܦܢ ܒܗܕܪܝܘܣ ܝܡܐ ܒܦܠܓܗ ܕܠܠܝܐ ܣܒܪܘ ܡܠܚܐ ܕܠܐܪܥܐ ܡܬܩܪܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ
27 And from after fourteen days of our wandering and our being beaten in The Hadrius {Adriatic} Sea, in the middle of the night, the sailors thought that we were drawing near unto land.

ܘܐܪܡܝܘ ܐܘܩܝܢܘܣ ܘܐܫܟܚܘ ܩܘܡܝܢ ܥܣܪܝܢ ܘܬܘܒ ܩܠܝܠ ܪܕܘ ܘܐܫܟܚܘ ܩܘܡܝܢ ܚܡܫܥܣܪܐ
28 And they threw out the sounding line, and they found it was twenty fathoms. And they journeyed a little further, and they found it was fifteen fathoms.

ܘܟܕ ܕܚܝܠܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܕܕܠܡܐ ܢܫܬܟܚ ܠܢ ܒܕܘܟܝܬܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗܝܢ ܫܘܥܐ ܐܪܡܝܘ ܡܢ ܚܪܬܗ ܕܐܠܦܐ ܐܘܩܝܢܘܣ ܐܪܒܥ ܘܡܨܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܝܘܡܐ
29 And while we were fearing that perhaps we would find ourselves in a place among the rocks, they threw out four anchors from the end of the ship, and we were praying that it would be day.

ܡܠܚܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܥܘ ܠܡܥܪܩ ܡܢܗ ܡܢ ܐܠܦܐ ܘܐܚܬܘ ܡܢܗ ܠܩܪܩܘܪܐ ܠܝܡܐ ܒܥܠܬܐ ܕܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܒܗ ܘܢܐܣܪܘܢܗ ܠܐܠܦܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ
30 Yet, the sailors sought to escape from the ship, and they lowered the skiff from her unto the sea, with the pretext that they should go in it and secure the ship on land.

ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܐܡܪ ܠܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܘܠܐܣܛܪܛܝܘܛܐ ܕܐܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܒܐܠܦܐ ܠܐ ܡܟܬܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܬܚܘܢ
31 And when Paulus {Paul} saw it, he said unto the Qentruna {the Centurion/the Captain of a hundred} and unto the soldiers, “If these do not remain in the ship, you are not able to live!”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܦܣܩܘ ܐܣܛܪܛܝܘܛܐ ܠܚܒܠܝܗ ܕܩܪܩܘܪܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܦܐ ܘܫܒܩܘܗ ܛܥܝܐ
32 Then, the soldiers cut the ropes of the skiff from the ship, and left her to wander.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܨܦܪܐ ܡܦܝܣ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܩܒܠܘܢ ܣܝܒܪܬܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܗܐ ܐܪܒܬܥܣܪ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܡܢ ܩܢܛܐ ܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܛܥܝܡ ܠܟܘܢ
33 Then, he, Paulus {Paul} was urging all of them, until morning, that they should take food, while saying unto them, “Look! Today is fourteen days that you haven’t tasted a thing, from fear.

ܡܛܠ ܗܕܐ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܬܩܒܠܘܢ ܡܐܟܘܠܬܐ ܠܩܘܝܡܐ ܕܚܝܝܟܘܢ ܡܢܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܢ ܪܫܐ ܕܚܕ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܐܒܕܐ
34 Because of this, I request from you that you should take food for the maintenance of your lives, for, a hair from the head of each one from you, will not be lost!”

ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܢܣܒ ܠܚܡܐ ܘܫܒܚ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܩܕܡ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܩܨܐ ܘܐܩܦ ܠܡܐܟܠ
35 And after he had said these things, he took lakhma {bread}, and gave praise unto Alaha {God} before all of them, and broke it, and they joined to eat.

ܘܐܬܒܝܐܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܩܒܠܘ ܬܘܪܣܝܐ
36 And they were all encouraged, and they received the food.

ܐܝܬܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܐܠܦܐ ܡܐܬܝܢ ܘܫܒܥܝܢ ܘܫܬ ܢܦܫܢ
37 Now, there were in the ship, two hundred and seventy and six souls!

ܘܟܕ ܣܒܥܘ ܡܐܟܘܠܬܐ ܐܩܠܘ ܡܢ ܐܠܦܐ ܘܫܩܠܘ ܚܛܐ ܘܫܕܘ ܒܝܡܐ
38 And after they were satisfied with the food, they lightened the ship, and took up wheat, and threw it in the sea.

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܝܘܡܐ ܣܦܢܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܗܝ ܐܪܥܐ ܠܐ ܐܫܬܘܕܥܘ ܐܠܐ ܚܪܘ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܝܒܫܐ ܟܢܦܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܝܡܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܪܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܐܢ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܢܕܚܘܢܗ ܠܐܠܦܐ
39 And when it was day, the sailors didn’t know which land it was, but, they saw upon its coastland a certain bay of the sea, where they were considering, if able, to propel the ship.

ܘܦܣܩܘ ܐܘܩܝܢܘܣ ܡܢ ܐܠܦܐ ܘܐܪܦܝܘ ܐܢܝܢ ܒܝܡܐ ܘܫܪܘ ܪܟܒܐ ܕܣܘܟܢܐ ܘܬܠܘ ܐܪܡܢܘܢ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܠܪܘܚܐ ܕܢܫܒܐ ܘܪܕܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܠܐܦܝ ܝܒܫܐ
40 And they cut the anchors from the ship and left them in the sea. And they loosened the bands of the paddles, and they hoisted a small topsail to the wind, which was blowing, and we were journeying towards the face of the land.

ܘܓܫܬ ܐܠܦܐ ܒܕܘܟܬܐ ܕܪܡܐ ܒܝܢܬ ܬܪܝܢ ܥܘܡܩܝܢ ܕܝܡܐ ܘܐܬܚܪܝܬ ܒܗ ܘܩܡ ܥܠܝܗ ܓܒܗ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܬܬܙܝܥ ܗܘܐ ܓܒܗ ܕܝܢ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܐܫܬܪܝ ܡܢ ܩܛܝܪܐ ܕܓܠܠܐ
41 And the ship made contact on a high place between two depths of the sea, and held fast to it. And the forward part stood upon it, and couldn’t be moved. Yet, the rear part was loose from the force of the waves.

ܘܨܒܘ ܗܘܘ ܐܣܛܪܛܝܘܛܐ ܕܢܩܛܠܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐܣܝܪܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܪܡܘܢ ܣܚܘܐ ܘܢܥܪܩܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ
42 And the soldiers were desiring that they should kill the prisoners, so that they shouldn’t cast forth, swimming, and should escape from them.

ܘܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܟܠܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢ ܗܕܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܚܐ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܪܡܝܘ ܣܚܘܐ ܦܩܕ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܒܩܕܡܝܐ ܢܣܚܘܢ ܘܢܥܒܪܘܢ ܠܐܪܥܐ
43 And the Qentruna {the Centurion/the Captain of a hundred} restrained them from this, on account that his desire was that Paulus {Paul} should live; and to those who were able to cast out to swim, he commanded them to be the first to swim, and cross over to the land.

ܘܠܫܪܟܐ ܥܠ ܕܦܐ ܘܥܠ ܩܝܣܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܐܠܦܐ ܐܥܒܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܗܟܢܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܫܬܘܙܒܘ ܠܐܪܥܐ
44 And for the rest; on boards and on other wood of the ship, they crossed over. And thus, all of them were delivered unto the land.

Chapter 28
ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪܟܢ ܝܠܦܢ ܕܡܝܠܛܐ ܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܗܝ ܓܙܪܬܐ
1 And afterwards we learned that the island is called Milita.

ܘܒܪܒܪܝܐ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗ ܪܚܡܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܚܘܝܘ ܠܘܬܢ ܘܐܘܚܕܘ ܢܘܪܐ ܘܩܪܐܘܢ ܠܟܠܢ ܕܢܫܚܢ ܡܛܠ ܡܛܪܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܩܘܪܫܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ
2 And the Barbraye {the Barbarians} who were dwelling in it, showed much mercy toward us, and they kindled a fire and called unto us all, so that we might be warmed, on account of the extensive rain, and cold which was there.

ܘܦܘܠܘܣ ܫܩܠ ܣܘܓܐܐ ܕܚܒܘܒܐ ܘܣܡ ܥܠ ܢܘܪܐ ܘܢܦܩܬ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܟܕܢܐ ܡܢ ܪܬܚܐ ܕܢܘܪܐ ܘܢܟܬܬ ܒܐܝܕܗ
3 And Paulus {Paul} took up a large amount of sticks, and put them on the fire, and a viper came out from them, because of the heat of the fire, and bit him in his hand.

ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐܘܗ ܒܪܒܪܝܐ ܕܬܠܝܐ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܒܪ ܗܢܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܩܛܘܠܐ ܗܘ ܕܟܕ ܐܫܬܘܙܒ ܡܢ ܝܡܐ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܠܐ ܫܒܩܬܗ ܕܢܚܐ
4 And when the Barbraye {the Barbarians} saw that it hung on his hand, they said, “Perhaps this gabra {man} is a murderer, who, after rescued from the sea, justice wouldn’t allow that he should live!”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܐܢܝܦ ܐܝܕܗ ܘܫܕܗ ܠܐܟܕܢܐ ܒܢܘܪܐ ܘܡܕܡ ܕܣܢܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܗܝ
5 Yet, he, Paulus {Paul}, waved his hand, and threw the viper into the fire, and nothing that is harmful happened.

ܣܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܒܪܒܪܝܐ ܕܒܪܫܥܬܗ ܡܬܡܣܐ ܘܢܦܠ ܟܕ ܡܝܬ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܘܟܕ ܥܕܢܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܣܟܝܘ ܘܚܙܘ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܣܢܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܗܝ ܫܚܠܦܘ ܡܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ
6 But, the Barbraye {the Barbarians} were expecting that at once {lit. in the son of an hour} he would swell up, and fall while dead upon the ground. And after they watched a long time, and saw that nothing which is foul happened to him, they changed their words, and said that he was a god!

ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܩܘܪܝܐ ܒܗ ܒܗܘ ܐܬܪܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܦܘܦܠܝܘܣ ܕܗܘ ܗܘܐ ܪܫܗ ܕܓܙܪܬܐ ܘܩܒܠܢ ܒܒܝܬܗ ܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܚܕܝܐܝܬ
7 Now, there were villages in that region for a certain gabra {man}, whose name was Puphlius {Publius}, he who was the Rishah {the Chief} of the island. And he gladly received us into his house for three days.

ܐܒܘܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܕܦܘܦܠܝܘܣ ܒܐܫܬܐ ܘܒܟܐܒ ܡܥܝܐ ܟܪܝܗ ܗܘܐ ܘܥܠ ܠܘܬܗ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܘܨܠܝ ܘܣܡ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܝܕܗ ܘܐܚܠܡܗ
8 But, the father of Puphlius {Publius} was sick with a fever and with intestinal pain. And Paulus {Paul} was brought unto him, and he prayed and put his hand on him, and healed him.

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܬ ܗܕܐ ܘܐܦ ܫܪܟܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܒܗ ܒܓܙܪܬܐ ܟܪܝܗܐ ܩܪܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܡܬܐܣܝܢ ܗܘܘ
9 And after this happened, the rest also; those who were sick among them on the island, came unto him and were healed.

ܘܐܝܩܪܐ ܪܘܪܒܐ ܝܩܪܘܢ ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܙܘܕܘܢ
10 And they honored us with great honors, and when we went forth from there, they provided us with provisions.

ܢܦܩܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܬܪ ܝܪܚܐ ܬܠܬܐ ܘܪܕܝܢ ܒܐܠܦܐ ܐܠܟܣܢܕܪܝܬܐ ܕܐܣܬܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܒܗ ܒܓܙܪܬܐ ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܥܠܝܗ ܐܬܐ ܕܬܐܡܐ
11 Then, after three months, we went forth, and we journeyed in an Aleksandratha {Alexandrian} ship, which had wintered at the island, and there was upon her the sign of The Twins {i.e. Castor and Pollux}.

ܘܐܬܝܢ ܠܣܪܩܘܣܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܩܘܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܬܠܬܐ
12 And we came unto Suraqusa {Syracuse} city, and we remained there three days.

ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܐܬܟܪܟܢ ܘܡܢܥܢ ܠܪܓܝܘܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܒܬܪ ܝܘܡܐ ܚܕ ܢܫܒܬ ܠܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܬܝܡܢܐ ܘܠܬܪܝܢ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܦܘܛܝܐܠܘܣ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܐܝܛܠܝܐ
13 And from there we circled around and arrived at Rigiun {Rhegium} city. And after one day, the wind of the south blew for us, and in two days we came unto Putialus {Puteoli}, a city of Italia {Italy}.

ܘܐܫܟܚܢ ܬܡܢ ܐܚܐ ܘܒܥܘ ܡܢܢ ܘܗܘܝܢ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܫܒܥܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܙܠܢ ܠܪܗܘܡܐ
14 And we found The Akhe {The Brothers} there, and they requested from us, and we were with them seven days. And then we went unto Ruhme {Rome}.

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܐܚܐ ܕܬܡܢ ܢܦܩܘ ܠܐܘܪܥܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܘܩܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܐܦܝܘܣ ܦܘܪܘܣ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܬܠܬ ܚܢܘܢ ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܐܘܕܝ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܬܚܝܠ
15 And when The Akhe {The Brothers} who were there had heard, they came out to meet us, as far as the market which is called Aphius Phurus {Appius Forum/The Market of Appius}, and up to Lathlath Khanun {The Three Taverns}. And when Paulus {Paul} saw them, he gave praise unto Alaha {God}, and was strengthened.

ܘܥܠܢ ܠܪܗܘܡܐ ܘܐܦܣ ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܠܦܘܠܘܣ ܕܢܫܪܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܨܒܐ ܥܡ ܐܣܛܪܛܝܘܛܐ ܗܘ ܕܢܛܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ
16 And we entered Ruhme {Rome}. And the Qentruna {the Centurion/the Captain of a hundred} permitted Paulus {Paul} to lodge where he desired, with the soldier; that one who was a guard for him.

ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܫܕܪ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܩܪܐ ܠܪܫܝܗܘܢ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܟܕ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝ ܐܢܐ ܟܕ ܒܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܩܡܬ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܥܡܐ ܘܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܐܒܗܝ ܒܐܣܘܪܐ ܐܫܬܠܡܬ ܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܒܐܝܕܐ ܕܪܗܘܡܝܐ
17 And after three days, Paulus {Paul} sent, calling for the Rishanayhun {the leading Chiefs} of the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews}. And when they had gathered, he said unto them, “Gabre {Men}, akhay {my brothers}, while in nothing did I stand to oppose the Ama {the People}, and The Namusa d’abahay {The Law of my fathers}, in chains I was delivered up from Urishlem {Jerusalem}, in the control of the Ruhmaye {the Romans}.

ܘܗܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܫܐܠܘܢܝ ܨܒܘ ܕܢܫܪܘܢܢܝ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܒܬܪܝ ܪܫܝܢܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܫܘܐ ܠܡܘܬܐ
18 And they, when they interrogated me, they desired that I should be loosed, on account that they didn’t find something reproachful against me, which was worthy for death.

ܘܟܕ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܘܩܒܠܝ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܬܐܠܨܬ ܕܐܩܥܐ ܒܓܢ ܩܣܪ ܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܕܐܩܛܪܓ ܒܡܕܡ ܠܒܢܝ ܥܡܝ
19 And when the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews} rose to oppose me, I was compelled that I should cry out the appeal of Qasar {Caesar}; not as if there was for me that I should accuse the sons of Ami {my People}, with something.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܒܥܝܬ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܬܐܬܘܢ ܘܐܚܙܝܟܘܢ ܘܐܫܬܥܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܛܠ ܣܒܪܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܝܣܪܝܠ ܐܣܝܪ ܐܢܐ ܒܫܫܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ
20 Because of this, I sought from you that you should come, and you should see, and I should relate unto you these things. For, on account of The Sabra d’IysraIyl {The Hope of Israel}, I am bound with this chain.”

ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܗܢܘܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܓܪܬܐ ܥܠܝܟ ܠܐ ܩܒܠܢ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܢ ܐܚܐ ܕܐܬܘ ܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܒܝܫ ܥܠܝܟ
21 They said unto him, “We received no letters concerning you from Yehud {Judea}, and no gabra {man} from The Akhe {The Brothers} who came from Urishlem {Jerusalem} unto us, have said a thing of evil against you.

ܨܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܫܡܥ ܡܢܟ ܡܕܡ ܕܡܬܪܥܐ ܐܢܬ ܡܛܠ ܕܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܥܠ ܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܡܩܒܠ
22 But, we are desiring that we hear from you the thing which you think, on account that this teaching, we know that concerning it, no nash {man} receives it.”

ܘܐܩܝܡܘ ܠܗ ܝܘܡܐ ܘܟܢܫܘ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܟܪ ܕܫܪܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܓܠܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܠ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܟܕ ܡܣܗܕ ܘܡܦܝܣ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܡܘܫܐ ܘܡܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܡܢ ܨܦܪܐ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܪܡܫܐ
23 And they established for him a day, and they gathered, and there came unto him many where he was lodging, and he revealed unto them concerning The Malkutha d’Alaha {The Kingdom of God}, while Testifying and convincing them concerning Eshu {Y’shu}, from The Namusa d’Mushe {The Law of Moses}, and from The Nabiye {The Prophets}; from the morning and until the evening.

ܘܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܬܛܦܝܣܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܠܘܗܝ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܠܐ ܡܬܛܦܝܣܝܢ ܗܘܘ
24 And nashiyn {men} from them assented unto his words, and others were not convinced.

ܘܐܫܬܪܝܘ ܡܢ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܕ ܠܐ ܫܠܡܝܢ ܠܚܕܕܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܘ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܫܦܝܪ ܡܠܠ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܒܦܘܡ ܐܫܥܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܐܒܗܬܟܘܢ
25 And they turned away from him, while not agreeing with each other. And Paulus {Paul} said unto them this word: “The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness} spoke well through the mouth of IshaYa Nabiya {Isaiah, the Prophet}, against your fathers,

ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܕܙܠ ܠܘܬ ܥܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܫܡܥܐ ܬܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܬܣܬܟܠܘܢ ܘܬܚܙܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܬܒܚܪܘܢ
26 where he says: “Go unto this Ama {People} and say unto them, ‘Hearing, you will hear and not understand, and seeing, and will not perceive.

ܐܬܥܒܝ ܠܗ ܓܝܪ ܠܒܗ ܕܥܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܡܫܡܥܬܗܘܢ ܐܘܩܪܘ ܘܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܥܡܨܘ ܕܠܐ ܢܚܙܘܢ ܒܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܢܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܐܕܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܢܣܬܟܠܘܢ ܒܠܒܗܘܢ ܘܢܬܘܒܘܢ ܠܘܬܝ ܘܐܫܒܘܩ ܠܗܘܢ
27 For, the heart of this Ama {People} is hardened, and they are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, so that they will not see with their eyes, and to hear with their ears, and to understand with their hearts, and should return unto Me, and I should forgive them.’”

ܬܬܝܕܥ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܗܕܐ ܕܠܥܡܡܐ ܗܘ ܐܫܬܕܪ ܗܢܐ ܦܘܪܩܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܘܐܦ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܠܗ
28 Therefore, this shall be known unto you: That unto the Amme {the Peoples/the Nations/Gentiles} this redemption of Alaha {God} is sent unto them, and they are also responding to it!”

ܘܐܓܪ ܠܗ ܦܘܠܘܣ ܡܢ ܕܝܠܗ ܒܝܬܐ ܘܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܘܡܩܒܠ ܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܘܬܗ
29* And, for himself, Paulus {Paul} rented a house from his own means, and was in it two years, and received there all those who were coming unto him.

Note: Verse 29 as found in the Byzantine Greek text, the Latin Vulgate text, and the Western Aramaic Peshitto version reads, “And after he said these things, the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews} departed, and there were many disagreements among them.” These words are not found in any of the Eastern Aramaic Manuscripts, and so vs 30 and 31 in them is verse 29 and 30 in this translation of the Eastern Aramaic NT text.

ܘܡܟܪܙ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܥܠ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܠܐ ܟܠܝܢ
30 And he Proclaimed concerning The Malkutheh d’Alaha {The Kingdom of God}, and taught boldly {lit. with an open eye} concerning Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One} without hindrance.
