1 The Kathaba {The Scripture/Book} of the generation of Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

ܐܒܪܗܡ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܐܝܣܚܩ ܐܝܣܚܩ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܝܥܩܘܒ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܝܗܘܕܐ ܘܠܐܚܘܗܝ
2 Abraham begat Iskhaq {Isaac}, Iskhaq {Isaac} begat Yaqub {Jacob}, Yaqub {Jacob} begat Yehuda {Judah} and his brothers.

ܝܗܘܕܐ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܦܪܨ ܘܠܙܪܚ ܡܢ ܬܡܪ ܦܪܨ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܚܨܪܘܢ ܚܨܪܘܢ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܐܪܡ
3 Yehuda {Judah} begat Phares and Zarakh from Thamar. Phares begat Khesrun, Khesrun begat Aram.

4 Aram begat Amiynadab, Amiynadab begat Nakhshun, Nakhshun begat Salmun.

ܣܠܡܘܢ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܒܥܙ ܡܢ ܪܚܒ ܒܥܙ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܥܘܒܝܕ ܡܢ ܪܥܘܬ ܥܘܒܝܕ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܐܝܫܝ
5 Salmun begat Baz from Rakhab, Baz begat Ubiyd {Obed} from Rauth {Ruth}, Ubiyd {Obed} begat Iyshay {Jesse}.

ܐܝܫܝ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܕܘܝܕ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܘܝܕ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܫܠܝܡܘܢ ܡܢ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܕܐܘܪܝܐ
6 Iyshay {Jesse} begat David, the King, David begat Shliymun {Solomon} from the wife of UriYa.

ܫܠܝܡܘܢ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܪܚܒܥܡ ܪܚܒܥܡ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܐܒܝܐ ܐܒܝܐ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܐܣܐ
7 Shliymun {Solomon} begat Rekhabam, Rekhabam begat AbiYa, AbiYa begat Asa.

ܐܣܐ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܝܗܘܫܦܛ ܝܗܘܫܦܛ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܝܘܪܡ ܝܘܪܡ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܥܘܙܝܐ
8 Asa begat Yahushaphat, Yahushaphat begat Yuram, Yuram begat UziYa.

ܥܘܙܝܐ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܝܘܬܡ ܝܘܬܡ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܐܚܙ ܐܚܙ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܚܙܩܝܐ
9 UziYa begat Yutham, Yutham begat Akhaz, Akhaz begat KhezaqiYa.

ܚܙܩܝܐ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܡܢܫܐ ܡܢܫܐ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܐܡܘܢ ܐܡܘܢ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܝܘܫܝܐ
10 KhezaqiYa begat Manashe, Manashe begat Amun, Amun begat YushiYa.

ܝܘܫܝܐ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܝܘܟܢܝܐ ܘܠܐܚܘܗܝ ܒܓܠܘܬܐ ܕܒܒܠ
11 YushiYa begat IyukaniYa {Jeconiah} and his brothers during the captivity of Babel.

ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܓܠܘܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܒܒܠ ܝܘܟܢܝܐ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܫܠܬܐܝܠ ܫܠܬܐܝܠ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܙܘܪܒܒܠ
12 Then, from after the captivity of Babel, IyukaniYa {Jeconiah} begat ShilathaIyl, ShilathaIyl begat Zurbabel.

ܙܘܪܒܒܠ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܐܒܝܘܕ ܐܒܝܘܕ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܐܠܝܩܝܡ ܐܠܝܩܝܡ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܥܙܘܪ
13 Zurbabel begat Abiyud, Abiyud begat Elyaqiym, Elyaqiym begat Azur.

15 Eliyud begat Eliyazar, Eliyazar begat Mathan, Mathan begat Yaqub {Jacob}.

ܝܥܩܘܒ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܝܘܣܦ ܓܒܪܗ ܕܡܪܝܡ ܕܡܢܗ ܐܬܝܠܕ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܡܫܝܚܐ
16 Yaqub {Jacob} begat Yuseph {Joseph}, the gabra {the man} of Maryam {Mary} from whom was born Eshu {Y’shu} who is called Meshikha {The Anointed One}.

ܟܠܗܝܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܡܢ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܕܘܝܕ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܐܪܒܥܣܪܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܘܝܕ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܓܠܘܬܐ ܕܒܒܠ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܐܪܒܥܣܪܐ ܘܡܢ ܓܠܘܬܐ ܕܒܒܠ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܡܫܝܚܐ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܐܪܒܥܣܪܐ
17 Therefore all the generations from Abraham until David, were fourteen generations, and from David until the captivity of Babel, were fourteen generations, and from the captivity of Babel, until Meshikha {The Anointed One}, were fourteen generations.

ܝܠܕܗ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܟܕ ܡܟܝܪܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܪܝܡ ܐܡܗ ܠܝܘܣܦ ܥܕ ܠܐ ܢܫܬܘܬܦܘܢ ܐܫܬܟܚܬ ܒܛܢܐ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
18 Now, the birth of Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}, was like this. While Maryam {Mary} His mother was betrothed {i.e. engaged} unto Yuseph {Joseph}, before they were to be married, she was found batna {pregnant} by The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}.

ܝܘܣܦ ܕܝܢ ܒܥܠܗ ܟܐܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܕܢܦܪܣܝܗ ܘܐܬܪܥܝ ܗܘܐ ܕܡܛܫܝܐܝܬ ܢܫܪܝܗ
19 But, Yuseph {Joseph}, balah {her husband/master/lord}, was just and didn’t want to expose her, and he was wanting to release her {i.e. from the betrothal/engagement}, secretly.

ܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܪܥܝ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܒܚܠܡܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܘܣܦ ܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠ ܠܡܣܒ ܠܡܪܝܡ ܐܢܬܬܟ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܬܝܠܕ ܒܗ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܗܘ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
20 Now, while he was thinking these things, The Malaka d’MarYa {The Heavenly Messenger of The Lord-YHWH} appeared unto him in a dream, and said unto him, “Yuseph {Joseph}, son of David, don’t be afraid to take Maryam {Mary} as antthak {your wife}, for that One who is begotten in her is from The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}.

ܬܐܠܕ ܕܝܢ ܒܪܐ ܘܬܩܪܐ ܫܡܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܢܚܝܘܗܝ ܠܥܡܗ ܡܢ ܚܛܗܝܗܘܢ
21 Now, she will bear a son, and you will call His name Eshu {Y’shu}, for He will save Ameh {His People} from their sins.”

ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗ ܕܗܘܬ ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܡܢ ܡܪܝܐ ܒܝܕ ܢܒܝܐ
22 Now, this all happened that the thing might be fulfilled which was spoken from MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} through the Nabiya {the Prophet},

ܕܗܐ ܒܬܘܠܬܐ ܬܒܛܢ ܘܬܐܠܕ ܒܪܐ ܘܢܩܪܘܢ ܫܡܗ ܥܡܢܘܐܝܠ ܕܡܬܬܪܓܡ ܥܡܢ ܐܠܗܢ
23 “Behold, a bethultha {a virgin} will conceive and bear a son, and they will call His name EmanuIyl,” which is interpreted; With us is Alahan {Our God}.

ܟܕ ܩܡ ܕܝܢ ܝܘܣܦ ܡܢ ܫܢܬܗ ܥܒܕ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܦܩܕ ܠܗ ܡܠܐܟܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܕܒܪܗ ܠܐܢܬܬܗ
24 Now, when Yuseph rose up from his sleep, he did as The Malakeh d’MarYa {The Heavenly Messenger of The Lord-YHWH} commanded him, and he took anttheh {his wife}.

ܘܠܐ ܚܟܡܗ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܝܠܕܬܗ ܠܒܪܗ ܒܘܟܪܐ ܘܩܪܬ ܫܡܗ ܝܫܘܥ
25 And he didn’t know {i.e. have marital relations with} her until she gave birth unto her firstborn Son, and she called His name Eshu {Y’shu}.

Chapter 2
ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܝܠܕ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܒܝܬ ܠܚܡ ܕܝܗܘܕܐ ܒܝܘܡܝ ܗܪܘܕܣ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܬܘ ܡܓܘܫܐ ܡܢ ܡܕܢܚܐ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
1 Now, when Eshu {Y’shu} was born in Beth-Lekhem of Yehuda {Judah} in the days of Herudes {i.e. Herod I} the King, Magushe {Magi} came from the Madnakha {the East} unto Urishlim {Jerusalem}.

ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܝܟܘ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܕܐܬܝܠܕ ܚܙܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܟܘܟܒܗ ܒܡܕܢܚܐ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܠܡܣܓܕ ܠܗ
2 And they were asking, “Where is The Malka d’Yehudaye {The King of The Judeans/Jews} who has been born? For, we saw kukbeh {His star} in the Madnakha {the East} and have come to mesgad {worship} Him.”

ܫܡܥ ܕܝܢ ܗܪܘܕܣ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܐܬܬܙܝܥ ܘܟܠܗ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܥܡܗ
3 Now, Herudes the King heard it, and was troubled, and all Urishlim {Jerusalem} with him.

ܘܟܢܫ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܣܦܪܐ ܕܥܡܐ ܘܡܫܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܐܝܟܐ ܡܬܝܠܕ ܡܫܝܚܐ
4 And he assembled all the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs}, and the Saphre d’Ama {the Scribes of the People}, and he was asking them, “Where is Meshikha {The Anointed One} born?”

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܒܒܝܬ ܠܚܡ ܕܝܗܘܕܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܟܬܝܒ ܒܢܒܝܐ
5 Then they said, “In Beth-Lekhem d’Yehuda {Judah}, for thus it is written by the Nabiya {the Prophet},

ܐܦ ܐܢܬܝ ܒܝܬ ܠܚܡ ܕܝܗܘܕܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܬܝ ܒܨܝܪܐ ܒܡܠܟܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܐ ܡܢܟܝ ܓܝܪ ܢܦܘܩ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܗܘ ܢܪܥܝܘܗܝ ܠܥܡܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ
6 ‘Even you Beth-Lekhem d’Yehuda {Judah}, you will not be the least among the Malke d’Yehuda {the Kings of Judah}. For, from you will go out The Malka {The King}, He who will shepherd Ami IysraIyl {My People Israel}.’”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܗܪܘܕܣ ܡܛܫܝܐܝܬ ܩܪܐ ܠܡܓܘܫܐ ܘܝܠܦ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܘܟܒܐ
7 Then Herudes secretly called unto the Magushe {the Magi} and learned from them at which time the kukba {the star} appeared unto them.

ܘܫܕܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܒܝܬ ܠܚܡ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܠܘ ܥܩܒܘ ܥܠ ܛܠܝܐ ܚܦܝܛܐܝܬ ܘܡܐ ܕܐܫܟܚܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܬܘ ܚܘܐܘܢܝ ܕܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܐܙܠ ܐܣܓܘܕ ܠܗ
8 And he sent them unto Beth-Lekhem {the house/place of bread}, and said unto them, “Go, diligently investigate concerning the talya {the boy}, and when you have found him, come inform me, so that I also can go worship him.”

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܡܢ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܙܠܘ ܘܗܐ ܟܘܟܒܐ ܗܘ ܕܚܙܘ ܒܡܕܢܚܐ ܐܙܠ ܗܘܐ ܩܕܡܝܗܘܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܩܡ ܠܥܠ ܡܢ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܛܠܝܐ
9 Then, when they heard from the Malka {the King}, they departed, and behold, the kukba {the star} that they had seen in the East was going before them, until it came and stood above from where the talya {the boy} was.

ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܠܟܘܟܒܐ ܚܕܝܘ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܕܛܒ
10 Now, when they saw the kukba {the star}, they had great gladness of much joy!

ܘܥܠܘ ܠܒܝܬܐ ܘܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܠܛܠܝܐ ܥܡ ܡܪܝܡ ܐܡܗ ܘܢܦܠܘ ܣܓܕܘ ܠܗ ܘܦܬܚܘ ܣܝܡܬܗܘܢ ܘܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܩܘܪܒܢܐ ܕܗܒܐ ܘܡܘܪܐ ܘܠܒܘܢܬܐ
11 And they entered into the house and saw the talya {the boy} with Maryam {Mary}, His mother, and they fell down worshiping Him, and they opened their treasures and offered unto Him gifts; Dahba {Gold}, and Mura {Myrrh}, and Buntha {Frankincense}.

ܘܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܒܚܠܡܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܗܦܟܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܗܪܘܕܣ ܘܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܐܙܠܘ ܠܐܬܪܗܘܢ
12 And it was shown unto them in a dream that they shouldn’t return to Herudes, and they went unto their own country by another way.

ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܐܙܠܘ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܒܚܠܡܐ ܠܝܘܣܦ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܡ ܕܒܪ ܠܛܠܝܐ ܘܠܐܡܗ ܘܥܪܘܩ ܠܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܬܡܢ ܗܘܝ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܗܪܘܕܣ ܠܡܒܥܝܗ ܠܛܠܝܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܘܒܕܝܘܗܝ
13 Now, when they had gone, The Malaka d’MarYa {The Heavenly Messenger of The Lord-YHWH} appeared unto Yuseph {Joseph} in a dream and said unto him, “Arise, take the talya {the boy} and His mother, and flee unto Mitsriyn {Egypt} and stay there until I tell you. For, Herudes is preparing to seek for the boy so as to destroy Him.”

ܝܘܣܦ ܕܝܢ ܩܡ ܫܩܠܗ ܠܛܠܝܐ ܘܠܐܡܗ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܘܥܪܩ ܠܡܨܪܝܢ
14 Then Yuseph {Joseph} arose, and took the boy and His mother in the night, and fled unto Mitsriyn {Egypt},

ܘܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܡܘܬܗ ܕܗܪܘܕܣ ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܡܢ ܡܪܝܐ ܒܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܡܢ ܡܨܪܝܢ ܩܪܝܬ ܠܒܪܝ
15 and was there until the death of Herudes, so that the thing might be fulfilled that was spoken from MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} by the Prophet, who said “From Mitsriyn {Egypt} I have called My Son.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܗܪܘܕܣ ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܐܬܒܙܚ ܡܢ ܡܓܘܫܐ ܐܬܚܡܬ ܛܒ ܘܫܕܪ ܩܛܠ ܛܠܝܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܒܝܬ ܠܚܡ ܘܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܬܚܘܡܝܗ ܡܢ ܒܪ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܘܠܬܚܬ ܐܝܟ ܙܒܢܐ ܕܥܩܒ ܡܢ ܡܓܘܫܐ
16 Then, when Herudes saw that he was mocked of the Magushe {the Magi}, he was very angry, and he sent and killed all talaye {the boys} of Beth-Lekhem and of all from its borders, sons two years and under, according to the time that he inquired from the Magushe {the Magi}.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܬܡܠܝ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܒܝܕ ܐܪܡܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ
17 Then was fulfilled the thing that was spoken through EramiYa Nabiya {Jeremiah, the Prophet}, who said,

ܩܠܐ ܐܫܬܡܥ ܒܪܡܬܐ ܒܟܝܐ ܘܐܠܝܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܪܚܝܠ ܒܟܝܐ ܥܠ ܒܢܝܗ ܘܠܐ ܨܒܝܐ ܠܡܬܒܝܐܘ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ
18 “A voice was heard in Ramtha, weeping and much lamentation, RakhIyl {Rachel} mourning concerning her sons, and not wanting comfort, because they are not.”

ܟܕ ܡܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܗܪܘܕܣ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܒܚܠܡܐ ܠܝܘܣܦ ܒܡܨܪܝܢ
19 Now, when Herudes the King, died, The Malaka d’MarYa {The Heavenly Messenger of The Lord-YHWH} appeared in a dream unto Yuseph {Joseph} in Mitsriyn {Egypt},

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܩܘܡ ܕܒܪ ܠܛܠܝܐ ܘܠܐܡܗ ܘܙܠ ܠܐܪܥܐ ܕܝܣܪܝܠ ܡܝܬܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܢܦܫܗ ܕܛܠܝܐ
20 and said unto him, “Arise, take the boy and His mother and go unto the land of IysraIyl {Israel}, for, they have died, those who were seeking the soul of the boy.”

ܘܝܘܣܦ ܩܡ ܕܒܪ ܠܛܠܝܐ ܘܠܐܡܗ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܐܪܥܐ ܕܝܣܪܝܠ
21 And Yuseph {Joseph} arose, took the boy and His mother, and came unto the land of IysraIyl {Israel}.

ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܫܡܥ ܕܐܪܟܠܐܘܣ ܗܘܐ ܡܠܟܐ ܒܝܗܘܕ ܚܠܦ ܗܪܘܕܣ ܐܒܘܗܝ ܕܚܠ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܠܬܡܢ ܘܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗ ܒܚܠܡܐ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ
22 But when he heard that Arkelaus was the Malka {the King} in Yehud {Judea} in place of Herudes his father, he was afraid to go there, and he saw in a dream that he should go unto the land of Galila {Galilee}.

ܘܐܬܐ ܥܡܪ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܢܨܪܬ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܒܢܒܝܐ ܕܢܨܪܝܐ ܢܬܩܪܐ
23 And he came and dwelled in the city that is called Natsrath {Nazareth}, so that the thing might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Nabiya {the Prophet}, that “He will be called a Natsraya {a Nazarene}.”

Chapter 3
ܒܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܐܬܐ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܡܥܡܕܢܐ ܘܡܟܪܙ ܗܘܐ ܒܚܘܪܒܐ ܕܝܗܘܕ
1 Then in those days Yukhanan Mamdana {John, the Immerser/Baptizer} came, and was Proclaiming in the khurba d’Yehud {the desert of Judea}.

ܘܐܡܪ ܬܘܒܘ ܩܪܒܬ ܠܗ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
2 And saying, “Thubu {Repent}! The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens} has come near.”

ܗܢܘ ܓܝܪ ܗܘ ܕܐܡܝܪ ܒܝܕ ܐܫܥܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܩܠܐ ܕܩܪܐ ܒܚܘܪܒܐ ܛܝܒܘ ܐܘܪܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܐܫܘܘ ܠܫܒܝܠܘܗܝ
3 For, this is the one whom it was spoken through EshaYa Nabiya {Isaiah, the Prophet}, “A voice who is calling out in the khurba {the desert}, ‘Prepare the way of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, and make His paths straight!’”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܘܫܗ ܕܣܥܪܐ ܕܓܡܠܐ ܘܐܣܪ ܚܨܐ ܕܡܫܟܐ ܥܠ ܚܨܘܗܝ ܘܡܐܟܘܠܬܗ ܩܡܨܐ ܘܕܒܫܐ ܕܒܪܐ
4 Now, Yukhanan’s {John’s} garments were of the hair of the Gamle {the Camels}, and a loin’s belt of skins upon his loins. And his food was the Qamtse {the Locusts} and the debsha {the honey} of the field.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܦܩܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܘܬܗ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܟܠܗ ܝܗܘܕ ܘܟܠܗ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܚܕܪܝ ܝܘܪܕܢܢ
5 Then Urishlim {Jerusalem}, and all Yehud {Judea}, and all the lands that surround the Yurdnan {i.e. the Jordan River}, was going out to him,

ܘܥܡܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗ ܒܝܘܪܕܢܢ ܢܗܪܐ ܟܕ ܡܘܕܝܢ ܒܚܛܗܝܗܘܢ
6 and they were Immersed {Baptized} of him in the Yurdnan Nahra {the Jordan River} while they were confessing with regard to their sins.

ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܝܢ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܡܢ ܙܕܘܩܝܐ ܕܐܬܝܢ ܠܡܥܡܕ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܠܕܐ ܕܐܟܕܢܐ ܡܢܘ ܚܘܝܟܘܢ ܠܡܥܪܩ ܡܢ ܪܘܓܙܐ ܕܐܬܐ
7 But, when he saw many from the Phrishe {the Pharisees} and from the Zaduqaye {the Sadducees} who were coming to be Immersed {Baptized}, he said unto them, “Offspring of kedne {vipers}! Who has informed you to flee from the wrath that is coming?

ܥܒܕܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܦܐܪܐ ܕܫܘܝܢ ܠܬܝܒܘܬܐ
8 Produce therefore the fruits that are suitable for repentance.

ܘܠܐ ܬܣܒܪܘܢ ܘܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܒܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܕܐܒܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܫܟܚ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܠܡܩܡܘ ܒܢܝܐ ܠܐܒܪܗܡ
9 And you shouldn’t think and say within your soul {yourself} that Abraham is a father for us, because I say unto you that Alaha {God} is able from these kephe {rocks/stones} to raise sons for Abraham.

ܗܐ ܕܝܢ ܢܪܓܐ ܣܝܡ ܥܠ ܥܩܪܐ ܕܐܝܠܢܐ ܟܠ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܦܐܪܐ ܛܒܐ ܠܐ ܥܒܕ ܡܬܦܣܩ ܘܢܦܠ ܒܢܘܪܐ
10 But, behold, the narga {the axe} is placed on the root of the trees. All the trees therefore that doesn’t bear good fruit, will be cut down and thrown in the nura {the fire}!

ܐܢܐ ܡܥܡܕ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܡܝܐ ܠܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܒܬܪܝ ܐܬܐ ܚܣܝܢ ܗܘ ܡܢܝ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܫܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܣܢܘܗܝ ܠܡܫܩܠ ܗܘ ܡܥܡܕ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܒܢܘܪܐ
11 I am Immersing {Baptizing} you in maya {water} for repentance, but, that One who comes after me, He is stronger than me. That One’s sandals I’m not worthy to carry! He will Immerse {Baptize} you in The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, and in The Nura {The Fire}.

ܗܘ ܕܪܦܫܐ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܘܡܕܟܐ ܐܕܪܘܗܝ ܘܚܛܐ ܟܢܫ ܠܐܘܨܪܘܗܝ ܘܬܒܢܐ ܡܘܩܕ ܒܢܘܪܐ ܕܠܐ ܕܥܟܐ
12 That One whose raphsha {winnowing fan} is in His hand, and He cleanses His threshing-floors, and He gathers the khete {the wheat} unto His storehouses, and the thebna {the chaff} He burns in the nura {the fire} that doesn’t extinguish.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܬܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܠܝܘܪܕܢܢ ܠܘܬ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܕܢܥܡܕ ܡܢܗ
13 Then Eshu {Y’shu} came from Galila {Galilee} to the Yurdnan {i.e. the Jordan River}, to Yukhanan {John}, so that He might be Immersed {Baptized} by him.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܟܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܣܢܝܩ ܐܢܐ ܕܡܢܟ ܐܬܥܡܕ ܘܐܢܬ ܠܘܬܝ ܐܬܝܬ
14 But he, Yukhanan {John}, was forbidding Him, and said, “I am in need of Immersion {Baptism} from You, and You come to me?”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܒܘܩ ܗܫܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܝܐܐ ܠܢ ܕܢܡܠܐ ܟܠܗ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܒܩܗ
15 Then He, Eshu {Y’shu}, answered and said unto him, “Allow it now, for thus it is proper for us that we should fulfill all kenutha {righteousness}.” And then he allowed it.

ܟܕ ܥܡܕ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܚܕܐ ܣܠܩ ܡܢ ܡܝܐ ܘܐܬܦܬܚܘ ܠܗ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܚܙܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܢܚܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܝܘܢܐ ܘܐܬܬ ܥܠܘܗܝ
16 Now, when Eshu {Y’shu} was Immersed {Baptized}, immediately He ascended from the maya {the waters}, and the Shmaya {the Heavens} were opened unto him, and he saw The Rukha d’Alaha {The Spirit of God} who was descending like a dove and came upon Him.

ܘܗܐ ܩܠܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܢܘ ܒܪܝ ܚܒܝܒܐ ܕܒܗ ܐܨܛܒܝܬ
17 And behold! A voice from the Shmaya {the Heavens}, which was saying, “This is My Beloved Son in whom I have been pleased.”

Chapter 4
ܗܝܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܬܕܒܪ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܠܡܕܒܪܐ ܕܢܬܢܣܐ ܡܢ ܐܟܠ ܩܪܨܐ
1 Then Eshu {Y’shu} was taken by The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness} unto the madbra {the desert}, so that He might be tested by the akel qartsa {the feeder of slander/the accuser i.e. the devil}.

ܘܨܡ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܐܝܡܡܝܢ ܘܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܠܝܠܘܢ ܐܚܪܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܟܦܢ
2 And He fasted forty daytimes and forty nights, then afterwards He was hungry.

ܘܩܪܒ ܗܘ ܕܡܢܣܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܢ ܒܪܗ ܐܢܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܡܪ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܢܗܘܝܢ ܠܚܡܐ
3 And that one who was tempting approached, and said unto Him, “If you are The Son of Alaha {God}, command so that these kephe {rocks} might become lakhma {bread}.”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܟܬܝܒ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܠܚܡܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܚܝܐ ܒܪ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܟܠ ܡܠܐ ܕܢܦܩܐ ܡܢ ܦܘܡܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
4 Then He answered and said, “It is written that ‘a son of man doesn’t live by lakhma {bread} alone, but rather, by every word that proceeds from the mouth of Alaha {God}!’”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܕܒܪܗ ܐܟܠ ܩܪܨܐ ܠܡܕܝܢܬ ܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ ܥܠ ܟܢܦܐ ܕܗܝܟܠܐ
5 Then the akel qartsa {the feeder of slander/the accuser i.e. the devil} took Him unto The Holy City and stood Him on a kenpha {lit. a wing} of The Haykla {The Temple},

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܢ ܒܪܗ ܐܢܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܫܕܝ ܢܦܫܟ ܠܬܚܬ ܟܬܝܒ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܡܠܐܟܘܗܝ ܢܦܩܕ ܥܠܝܟ ܘܥܠ ܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܢܫܩܠܘܢܟ ܕܠܐ ܬܬܩܠ ܒܟܐܦܐ ܪܓܠܟ
6 and said unto Him, “If you are The Son of Alaha {God}, throw naphshak {your soul/yourself} down, for, it is written that ‘He commands Malakuhi {His Heavenly Messengers} concerning you, and upon their hands they will bear you up, so that your foot shouldn’t stumble upon a kepha {a rock}.’”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܬܘܒ ܟܬܝܒ ܕܠܐ ܬܢܣܐ ܠܡܪܝܐ ܐܠܗܟ
7 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “Again it is written: ‘You shall not test MarYa Alahak {The Lord-YHWH, your God}!’”

ܬܘܒ ܕܒܪܗ ܐܟܠ ܩܪܨܐ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܕܛܒ ܪܡ ܘܚܘܝܗ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܘܫܘܒܚܗܝܢ
8 Again the akel qartsa {the feeder of slander/the accuser i.e. the devil} took Him unto a mountain that was very high and showed Him all the Malkutha d’alma {the Kingdoms of the world}, and their glory,

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܠܟ ܐܬܠ ܐܢ ܬܦܠ ܬܣܓܘܕ ܠܝ
9 and said unto Him, “All these I will give unto you, if you will thephel {fall down/prostrate}, and will thesgud {worship/lit. bow down to} me.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܙܠ ܠܟ ܣܛܢܐ ܟܬܝܒ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܡܪܝܐ ܐܠܗܟ ܬܣܓܘܕ ܘܠܗ ܒܠܚܘܕܘܗܝ ܬܦܠܘܚ
10 Then Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “Go, satana! For, it is written: ‘You shall thesgud {worship, lit. bow down to} MarYa Alahak {The Lord-YHWH, your God} and Him alone shall you serve!’ ”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܒܩܗ ܐܟܠ ܩܪܨܐ ܘܗܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܘܡܫܡܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
11 Then the akel qartsa {the feeder of slander/the accuser i.e. the devil} left Him, and behold, The Malake {The Heavenly Messengers} approached, and were ministering unto Him.

ܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܫܬܠܡ ܫܢܝ ܠܗ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ
12 Then, when Eshu {Y’shu} had heard that Yukhanan {John} was delivered up {i.e. arrested}, He departed for Galila {Galilee}.

ܘܫܒܩܗ ܠܢܨܪܬ ܘܐܬܐ ܥܡܪ ܒܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܝܡܐ ܒܬܚܘܡܐ ܕܙܒܘܠܘܢ ܘܕܢܦܬܠܝ
13 And He left Natsrath {Nazareth} and having come, dwelt in Kaparnakhum {Capernaum} on the side of the sea by the border of Zebulun and of Naphthali,

ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܒܝܕ ܐܫܥܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ
14 so that the thing might be fulfilled which was spoken through EshaYa Nabiya {Isaiah, the Prophet}, who said,

ܐܪܥܐ ܕܙܒܘܠܘܢ ܐܪܥܐ ܕܢܦܬܠܝ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܝܡܐ ܥܒܪܘܗܝ ܕܝܘܪܕܢܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ
15 “The land of Zebulun, the land of Naphthali, the way of the yama {the sea}, the crossings of Yurdnan {i.e. the Jordan River}; Galila {Galilee} of the Nations,

ܥܡܐ ܕܝܬܒ ܒܚܫܘܟܐ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܪܒܐ ܚܙܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܬܒܝܢ ܒܐܬܪܐ ܘܒܛܠܠܐ ܕܡܘܬܐ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܕܢܚ ܠܗܘܢ
16 the Ama {the People} who are sitting in darkness, have seen a Nuhra Raba {a Great Light}, and those who are sitting in the region and in the shadow of death, The Nuhra {The Light} has risen for them.”

ܡܢ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܪܝ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܡܟܪܙܘ ܘܠܡܐܡܪ ܬܘܒܘ ܩܪܒܬ ܠܗ ܓܝܪ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
17 From then on, Eshu {Y’shu} began to Proclaim, and to say “Thubu {Repent}! Because The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens} has been brought near to you.”

ܘܟܕ ܡܗܠܟ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܝܡܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ ܚܙܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܐܚܝܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܐܬܩܪܝ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܢܕܪܐܘܣ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܕܪܡܝܢ ܡܨܝܕܬܐ ܒܝܡܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܨܝܕܐ
18 And while He was walking on the side of the sea of Galila {Galilee}, He saw two brothers, Shimeun {Simeon}, called ‘Kepha’ {The Rock}, and Andreus {Andrew} his brother, who were casting nets in the yama {the sea}, because they happened to be tsayade {fishers}.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܬܘ ܒܬܪܝ ܘܐܥܒܕܟܘܢ ܕܬܗܘܘܢ ܨܝܕܐ ܕܒܢܝܢܫܐ
19 And Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them “Follow Me, and I will make it so that you will be tsayade {fishers} of the sons of men.”

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܚܕܐ ܫܒܩܘ ܡܨܝܕܬܗܘܢ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ
20 Then they immediately left their nets, and followed Him.

ܘܟܕ ܥܒܪ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܚܙܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܚܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܒܪ ܙܒܕܝ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܒܐܠܦܐ ܥܡ ܙܒܕܝ ܐܒܘܗܘܢ ܕܡܬܩܢܝܢ ܡܨܝܕܬܗܘܢ ܘܩܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ
21 And when He crossed over from there, He saw two other brothers, Yaqub {Jacob/James}, the son of Zabday {Zebedee}, and Yukhanan {John}, his brother in an elpha {a ship} with Zabday {Zebedee}, their father, who were repairing their nets, and Eshu {Y’shu} called them.

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܚܕܐ ܫܒܩܘ ܠܐܠܦܐ ܘܠܐܒܘܗܘܢ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ
22 Then they left the elpha {the ship} and their father immediately, and they followed Him.

ܘܡܬܟܪܟ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܟܠܗ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܗܘܢ ܘܡܟܪܙ ܣܒܪܬܐ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܘܡܐܣܐ ܟܠ ܟܐܒ ܘܟܘܪܗܢ ܒܥܡܐ
23 Eshu {Y’shu} was going around in all Galila {Galilee} and was teaching in Kenushathhun {their Synagogues/Assemblies} and Proclaiming The Sabartha d’Malkutha {The Hopeful Message of The Kingdom}, and He was healing every disease and sickness among the Ama {the People}.

ܘܐܫܬܡܥ ܛܒܗ ܒܟܠܗ ܣܘܪܝܐ ܘܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܝܫ ܒܝܫ ܥܒܝܕܝܢ ܒܟܘܪܗܢܐ ܡܫܚܠܦܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܠܝܨܝܢ ܒܬܫܢܝܩܐ ܘܕܝܘܢܐ ܘܕܒܪ ܐܓܪܐ ܘܡܫܪܝܐ ܘܐܣܝ ܐܢܘܢ
24 And His fame was heard in all Syria, and all those who were very sick, subjected to various illnesses, and those who were tormented, and the possessed, and the insane, and the paralytics approached Him, and He healed them.

ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܡܢ ܥܣܪܬ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܡܢ ܝܗܘܕ ܘܡܢ ܥܒܪܐ ܕܝܘܪܕܢܢ
25 And a large crowd followed Him from Galila {Galilee}, and from the Ten Cities, and from Urishlim {Jerusalem}, and from Yehud {Judea}, and from the crossing {i.e. the further bank} of the Yurdnan {i.e. the Jordan River}.

Chapter 5
ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܣܠܩ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܘܟܕ ܝܬܒ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
1 Now when Eshu {Y’shu} saw the multitudes, He ascended a tura {a mountain}, and when He sat down, His Disciples drew near to Him.

ܘܦܬܚ ܦܘܡܗ ܘܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ
2 And He opened phumeh {His mouth} and was teaching them, and was saying,

ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܡܣܟܢܐ ܒܪܘܚ ܕܕܝܠܗܘܢ ܗܝ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
3 “Happiness for the poor in spirit, because theirs is the Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens}!

ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܐܒܝܠܐ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܢܬܒܝܐܘܢ
4 Happiness for the abiyle {the mourners}, because they will be comforted!

ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܡܟܝܟܐ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܢܐܪܬܘܢ ܐܪܥܐ
5 Happiness for the makiyke {the humble}, because they will inherit the Ara {the Earth}!

ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܟܦܢܝܢ ܘܨܗܝܢ ܠܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܢܣܒܥܘܢ
6 Happiness for those who kaphniyn {hunger} and sheyn {thirst} for kenutha {righteousness/justice}, because they will be satisfied!

ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܡܪܚܡܢܐ ܕܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܪܚܡܐ
7 Happiness for the amrakhmane {the merciful}, because mercies will be upon them!

ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܟܝܢ ܒܠܒܗܘܢ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܢܚܙܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ
8 Happiness for those who are dakeyn b’lebhun {pure in their heart}, because they will see Alaha {God}.

ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܥܒܕܝ ܫܠܡܐ ܕܒܢܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܢܬܩܪܘܢ
9 Happiness for those who make shlama {peace}, because they will be called the sons of Alaha {God}.

ܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܪܕܦܘ ܡܛܠ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܕܕܝܠܗܘܢ ܗܝ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
10 Happiness for those who are persecuted because of kenutha {righteousness/justice}, because theirs is the Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens}.

ܛܘܒܝܟܘܢ ܐܡܬܝ ܕܡܚܣܕܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܪܕܦܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܟܠ ܡܠܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܡܛܠܬܝ ܒܕܓܠܘܬܐ
11 Happy are you, when they reproach you, and they persecute you, and they speak every evil word about you, falsely, because of Me.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܚܕܘ ܘܪܘܙܘ ܕܐܓܪܟܘܢ ܣܓܝ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܪܕܦܘ ܠܢܒܝܐ ܕܡܢ ܩܕܡܝܟܘܢ
12 Then, be rejoicing and be joyful, because your reward is great in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, for, they likewise persecuted The Nabiye {The Prophets} who were from before you.

ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܠܚܗ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܠܚܐ ܬܦܟܗ ܒܡܢܐ ܬܬܡܠܚ ܠܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܐܙܠܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܬܫܬܕܐ ܠܒܪ ܘܬܬܕܝܫ ܡܢ ܐܢܫܐ
13 You are The Melkhe d’Ara {The Salt of the Earth}, but, if the Melkha {the Salt} should become tasteless, with what would it be seasoned? But rather, the thing not fit, is carried off, which is to be thrown outside, and will be trampled by mankind.

ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܢܘܗܪܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܕܬܛܫܐ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܥܠ ܛܘܪܐ ܒܢܝܐ
14 You are The Nuhreh d’alma {The Light of the world}, it isn’t possible that a madintha {a city} which is built upon a tura {a mountain} could be hidden.

ܘܠܐ ܡܢܗܪܝܢ ܫܪܓܐ ܘܣܝܡܝܢ ܠܗ ܬܚܝܬ ܣܐܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܥܠ ܡܢܪܬܐ ܘܡܢܗܪ ܠܟܠ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܒܝܬܐ ܐܢܘܢ
15 They don’t light a shraga {a lamp} and place it under a satha {a bushel}, but rather, upon a manartha {a lamp-stand}, and it manhar {shines} for all those who are in the house.

ܗܟܢܐ ܢܢܗܪ ܢܘܗܪܟܘܢ ܩܕܡ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܢܚܙܘܢ ܥܒܕܝܟܘܢ ܛܒܐ ܘܢܫܒܚܘܢ ܠܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
16 Likewise nuhrakun {your light} should shine before mankind, so that they might see your good deeds and they might glorify your Father who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}.

ܠܐ ܬܣܒܪܘܢ ܕܐܬܝܬ ܕܐܫܪܐ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܐܘ ܢܒܝܐ ܠܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܕܐܫܪܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܐܡܠܐ
17 Don’t think that I have come to loosen The Namusa {The Law}, or The Nabiye {The Prophets}, I haven’t come to loosen, but rather to fulfill.

ܐܡܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܥܒܪܘܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܐܪܥܐ ܝܘܕ ܚܕܐ ܐܘ ܚܕ ܣܪܛܐ ܠܐ ܢܥܒܪ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܟܠ ܢܗܘܐ
18 For, amiyn {truly} I say unto you, that until the Shmaya {the Heavens} and the Ara {the Earth} passes away, one yud {i.e. the smallest Aramaic letter}, or one serta {i.e. a small stroke, or line dash in Aramaic} will not pass away from The Namusa {The Law}, until all comes to pass {i.e. is fulfilled}.

ܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܢܫܪܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܘܢܠܦ ܗܟܢܐ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܒܨܝܪܐ ܢܬܩܪܐ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܟܠ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܥܒܕ ܘܢܠܦ ܗܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܢܬܩܪܐ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
19 All who therefore might loosen from one of these smallest Commandments, and should teach thus unto the sons of mankind, will be called the zure {the little ones} in The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens}, but, all who might do, and should teach this, will be called a Raba {a Great one} in The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens}.

ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܢ ܠܐ ܬܐܬܪ ܟܐܢܘܬܟܘܢ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܕܣܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܠܐ ܬܥܠܘܢ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
20 For, I say unto you, that unless kenuthkun {your righteousness/justice} exceeds more than that of the Saphre {the Scribes} and the Phrishe {the Pharisees}, you will not enter unto The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens}!

ܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܠܩܕܡܝܐ ܠܐ ܬܩܛܘܠ ܘܟܠ ܕܢܩܛܘܠ ܡܚܝܒ ܗܘ ܠܕܝܢܐ
21 You have heard that it was said unto those before, ‘you shall not kill;’ and all who might kill, is condemned to the judgment.

ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܢܪܓܙ ܥܠ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܐܝܩܐ ܡܚܝܒ ܗܘ ܠܕܝܢܐ ܘܟܠ ܕܢܐܡܪ ܠܐܚܘܗܝ ܪܩܐ ܡܚܝܒ ܗܘ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܢܐܡܪ ܠܠܐ ܡܚܝܒ ܗܘ ܠܓܗܢܐ ܕܢܘܪܐ
22 But I, I say unto you, that everyone who is enraged against his brother, for no reason, is condemned to the judgment, and everyone who might say unto his brother, ‘Raqa’ {I spit on you}, is liable to The Kenushtha {The Synagogue/The Assembly}, and all who might say, ‘Lela’ {You idiot}, is condemned to The Gihana d’Nuhra {The Gehenna of Fire}.

ܐܢ ܗܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܡܩܪܒ ܐܢܬ ܩܘܪܒܢܟ ܥܠ ܡܕܒܚܐ ܘܬܡܢ ܬܬܕܟܪ ܕܐܚܝܕ ܥܠܝܟ ܐܚܘܟ ܐܟܬܐ ܡܕܡ
23 If it is therefore, that you offer qurbanak {your sacrifice} on the Madbakha {the Altar}, and there you might remember that your brother holds some aktha {grudge} against you,

ܫܒܘܩ ܬܡܢ ܩܘܪܒܢܟ ܥܠ ܡܕܒܚܐ ܘܙܠ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܐܬܪܥܐ ܥܡ ܐܚܘܟ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܬܐ ܩܪܒ ܩܘܪܒܢܟ
24 leave qurbanak {your sacrifice} there next to the Madbakha {the Altar}, and first go reconcile with your brother, and then come offer qurbanak {your sacrifice}.

ܗܘܝܬ ܡܬܐܘܐ ܥܡ ܒܥܠ ܕܝܢܟ ܥܓܠ ܥܕ ܥܡܗ ܐܢܬ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܒܥܠ ܕܝܢܟ ܢܫܠܡܟ ܠܕܝܢܐ ܘܕܝܢܐ ܢܫܠܡܟ ܠܓܒܝܐ ܘܬܦܠ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ
25 Be in agreement {i.e. settle} with bel diynak {your law master, i.e. your prosecuting attorney} quickly while you are with him in the way, lest bel diynak {your law master, i.e. your prosecuting attorney} hands you over to the Judge, and the Judge hands you over to the Tribute Collector, and you be cast into the prisoner’s house.

ܘܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܕܠܐ ܬܦܘܩ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܬܬܠ ܫܡܘܢܐ ܐܚܪܝܐ
26 And amiyn {truly}, I say unto you, that you will not go out from there until you should give the last shamuna {a small valued coin}.

ܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܕܠܐ ܬܓܘܪ
27 You have heard that it has been said that ‘You shall not commit adultery.’

ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܚܙܐ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܪܓܝܗ ܡܚܕܐ ܓܪܗ ܒܠܒܗ
28 But I, I say unto you, that whoever that looks at an anttha {a woman} in order to appease his lust, immediately has committed adultery in his heart.

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܥܝܢܟ ܕܝܡܝܢܐ ܡܟܫܠܐ ܠܟ ܚܨܝܗ ܘܫܕܝܗ ܡܢܟ ܦܩܚ ܠܟ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܐܒܕ ܚܕ ܗܕܡܟ ܘܠܐ ܟܠܗ ܦܓܪܟ ܢܦܠ ܒܓܗܢܐ
29 But, if your right eye causes you to makshla {stumble/offend i.e. to sin}, pluck it out and throw it from you, for, it is better for you that one of your members should perish, and not all your body be thrown into Gihana {Gehenna}.

ܘܐܢ ܐܝܕܟ ܕܝܡܝܢܐ ܡܟܫܠܐ ܠܟ ܦܣܘܩ ܫܕܝܗ ܡܢܟ ܦܩܚ ܠܟ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܐܒܕ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܕܡܝܟ ܘܠܐ ܟܠܗ ܦܓܪܟ ܢܦܠ ܒܓܗܢܐ
30 And if your right hand causes you to makshla {to stumble/offend i.e. to sin}, cut it off and throw it from you, for, it is better for you that one from your members should perish and not all your body be thrown into Gihana {Gehenna}.

ܐܬܐܡܪ ܕܡܢ ܕܫܪܐ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܢܬܠ ܠܗ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܕܘܠܠܐ
31 It has been said that he who loosens anttheh {his wife} {i.e. releases her from her vow} shall give unto her a writing of divorcement.

ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܫܪܐ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܙܢܝܘܬܐ ܥܒܕ ܠܗ ܕܬܓܘܪ ܘܡܢ ܕܫܩܠ ܫܒܝܩܬܐ ܓܐܪ
32 But I, I say unto you, that all who loosens anttheh {his wife}, aside from a case of fornication, makes her commit adultery, and he who takes {i.e. marries} a divorcee, commits adultery.

ܬܘܒ ܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܠܩܕܡܝܐ ܕܠܐ ܬܕܓܠ ܒܡܘܡܬܟ ܬܫܠܡ ܕܝܢ ܠܡܪܝܐ ܡܘܡܬܟ
33 Again you have heard that it has been said unto the former ones, that ‘You shall not lie in your oaths, but rather, complete your oaths unto MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}.’

ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܬܐܡܘܢ ܣܟ ܠܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܕܟܘܪܣܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܠܗܐ
34 But I, I say unto you, you shouldn’t say ‘I swear’ at all. Not by the Shmaya {the Heavens}, because that is The Throne of Alaha {God},

ܘܠܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܕܟܘܒܫܐ ܗܝ ܕܬܚܝܬ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܗ ܗܝ ܕܡܠܟܐ ܪܒܐ
35 and not by the Ara {the Earth}, because it is the footstool which is under His feet. Not even by Urishlim {Jerusalem}, because it is The City of The Great King.

ܐܦ ܠܐ ܒܪܫܟ ܬܐܡܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܬ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܒܗ ܡܢܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܣܥܪܐ ܐܘ ܟܡܬܐ ܐܘ ܚܘܪܬܐ
36 Not even theme {swear} by your head, because you are not able to make in it one portion of the hair black or white.

ܐܠܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܡܠܬܟܘܢ ܐܝܢ ܐܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܒܝܫܐ ܗܘ
37 But rather, your word should be ‘Iyn {Yes},’ ‘Iyn {Yes},’ and ‘La {No},’ ‘La {No}.’ Something which is more than these is from evil.

ܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܕܥܝܢܐ ܚܠܦ ܥܝܢܐ ܘܫܢܐ ܚܠܦ ܫܢܐ
38 You have heard that it has been said that ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’

ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܬܩܘܡܘܢ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܒܝܫܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܡܚܐ ܠܟ ܥܠ ܦܟܟ ܕܝܡܝܢܐ ܐܦܢܐ ܠܗ ܐܦ ܐܚܪܢܐ
39 But I, I say unto you, that you shall not stand against evil, but rather, the one who hits you upon your right phakak {cheek}, turn also to him the other.

ܘܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܕܢܕܘܢ ܥܡܟ ܘܢܫܩܘܠ ܟܘܬܝܢܟ ܫܒܘܩ ܠܗ ܐܦ ܡܪܛܘܛܟ
40 And the one who desires to go to court with you and take kuthiynak {your tunic i.e. your shirt}, leave him martutak {your cloak i.e. your coat also.

ܡܢ ܕܡܫܚܪ ܠܟ ܡܝܠܐ ܚܕ ܙܠ ܥܡܗ ܬܪܝܢ
41 The one who compels you one miyla {mile}, go with him two.

ܡܢ ܕܫܐܠ ܠܟ ܗܒ ܠܗ ܘܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܕܢܐܙܦ ܡܢܟ ܠܐ ܬܟܠܝܘܗܝ
42 The one who asks you to give unto him, and the one who desires to borrow from you, you shall not refuse him.

ܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܕܪܚܡ ܠܩܪܝܒܟ ܘܣܢܝ ܠܒܥܠܕܒܒܟ
43 You have heard that it has been said, that ‘you are to love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.’

ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܚܒܘ ܠܒܥܠܕܒܒܝܟܘܢ ܘܒܪܟܘ ܠܡܢ ܕܠܐܛ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܥܒܕܘ ܕܫܦܝܪ ܠܡܢ ܕܣܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܨܠܘ ܥܠ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܒܪܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܩܛܝܪܐ ܘܪܕܦܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ
44 But I, I say unto you, you are to love your enemies, and bless the ones who curse you, and do that which is good unto the ones who hate you. And pray over the ones who take you by force and persecutes you,

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܬܗܘܘܢ ܒܢܘܗܝ ܕܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܡܕܢܚ ܫܡܫܗ ܥܠ ܛܒܐ ܘܥܠ ܒܝܫܐ ܘܡܚܬ ܡܛܪܗ ܥܠ ܟܐܢܐ ܘܥܠ ܥܘܠܐ
45 in such a way that you may be the sons of Abukhun {Your Father} who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, He who shines His sun upon the good, and upon the evil, and brings down His rain upon the just, and upon the unjust.

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܡܚܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܚܒܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܐܓܪܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܗܐ ܐܦ ܡܟܣܐ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ
46 For, if you love the ones who love you, what reward is there for you? Look! Isn’t even the Makse {the Tax Collectors} doing this?

ܘܐܢ ܫܐܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܕܐܚܝܟܘܢ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܡܢܐ ܝܬܝܪ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܗܐ ܐܦ ܡܟܣܐ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ
47 And if you greet in shlama {peace} only those of your brothers, what more are you doing? Look! Isn’t even the Makse {the Tax Collectors} doing this?

ܗܘܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܓܡܝܪܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܓܡܝܪ ܗܘ
48 You therefore are to be gamiyre {perfect ones}, in such a way that Your Father, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, is perfect.

Chapter 6
ܚܘܪܘ ܕܝܢ ܒܙܕܩܬܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܬܥܒܕܘܢܗ ܩܕܡ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܬܬܚܙܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܢ ܠܐ ܐܓܪܐ ܠܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
1 So then, look all around during your almsgiving, so that you will not do it in front of the sons of mankind in such a way that you might be seen by them. And if not, there is no reward for you with Your Father, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}.

ܐܡܬܝ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܙܕܩܬܐ ܠܐ ܬܩܪܐ ܩܪܢܐ ܩܕܡܝܟ ܐܝܟ ܕܥܒܕܝܢ ܢܣܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܒܫܘܩܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܫܬܒܚܘܢ ܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܘܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܩܒܠܘ ܐܓܪܗܘܢ
2 Therefore, when you are doing zedaqtha {alms}, don’t be sounding a qarna {a horn} in front of you like the nasbay baphe {lit. the face takers i.e. the pretenders/actors} are doing in The Kenushatha {The Synagogues/The Assemblies} and in the marketplaces, so that they might be praised from the sons of mankind, and truly I say unto you, that they have received their reward.

ܐܢܬ ܕܝܢ ܡܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܙܕܩܬܐ ܠܐ ܬܕܥ ܣܡܠܟ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܝܡܝܢܟ
3 But you, when you are doing zedaqtha {alms}, you shouldn’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,

ܐܝܟ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܙܕܩܬܟ ܒܟܣܝܐ ܘܐܒܘܟ ܕܚܙܐ ܒܟܣܝܐ ܗܘ ܢܦܪܥܟ ܒܓܠܝܐ
4 so that zedaqthak {your alms} might be in secret, and Your Father, who sees in secret, will Himself repay you in the open.

ܘܡܐ ܕܡܨܠܐ ܐܢܬ ܠܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܢܣܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܕܪܚܡܝܢ ܠܡܩܡ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܒܙܘܝܬܐ ܕܫܘܩܐ ܠܡܨܠܝܘ ܕܢܬܚܙܘܢ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܘܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܩܒܠܘ ܐܓܪܗܘܢ
5 And whenever you are praying, you shouldn’t be like the nasbay baphe {lit. the face takers i.e. the pretenders/actors}, who love standing in The Kenushatha {The Synagogues/The Assemblies} and on the corners of the shuqe {the marketplaces}, praying, so that they might be visible to the sons of mankind. And truly I say unto you, that they have received their reward.

ܐܢܬ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܬܝ ܕܡܨܠܐ ܐܢܬ ܥܘܠ ܠܬܘܢܟ ܘܐܚܘܕ ܬܪܥܟ ܘܨܠܐ ܠܐܒܘܟ ܕܒܟܣܝܐ ܘܐܒܘܟ ܕܚܙܐ ܒܟܣܝܐ ܢܦܪܥܟ ܒܓܠܝܐ
6 But, when you pray, enter thawanak {your room} and close tharak {your door}, and pray unto Your Father, who is in kesya {secret}, and Your Father who sees in kesya {secret}, will repay you in gelya {the open}.

ܘܡܐ ܕܡܨܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܡܦܩܩܝܢ ܐܝܟ ܚܢܦܐ ܣܒܪܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܡܡܠܠܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܫܬܡܥܝܢ
7 And when you pray, don’t be wordy like the khanphe {the pagans}, for, they hope that by many words they will be heard.

ܠܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܕܡܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܝܕܥ ܡܢܐ ܡܬܒܥܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܥܕܠܐ ܬܫܐܠܘܢܝܗܝ
8 Therefore, you shouldn’t be like them, for, Your Father knows what you methbe {require} before you will ask Him.

ܗܟܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܨܠܘ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܒܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܢܬܩܕܫ ܫܡܟ
9 Therefore, you are to pray like this: ‘Abun {Our Father}, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, may Shmak {Your Name} be hallowed,

ܬܐܬܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܟ ܢܗܘܐ ܨܒܝܢܟ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܐܦ ܒܐܪܥܐ
10 may Malkuthak {Your Kingdom} come, may Tsebyanak {Your Will}, as it is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, even so be in the Ara {the Earth}.

ܗܒܠܢ ܠܚܡܐ ܕܣܘܢܩܢܢ ܝܘܡܢܐ
11 Give unto us the lakhma {the bread} of our need, today,

ܘܫܒܘܩ ܠܢ ܚܘܒܝܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܫܒܩܢ ܠܚܝܒܝܢ
12 and forgive us khawbyin {our debts} as we also have forgiven khayabyin {our debtors}.

ܘܠܐ ܬܥܠܢ ܠܢܣܝܘܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܦܨܢ ܡܢ ܒܝܫܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܕܝܠܟ ܗܝ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܘܚܝܠܐ ܘܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܠܥܠܡ ܥܠܡܝܢ
13 And don’t let us enter into nesyuna {testing}, but rather, deliver us from biysha {evil}, because Yours is The Malkutha {The Kingdom}, and The Khayla {The Power}, and The Theshbukhtha {The Glory}, unto alam almiyn {everlasting eternities}.’

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܬܫܒܩܘܢ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܣܟܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܢܫܒܘܩ ܐܦ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
14 For, if you forgive the sons of men their trespasses, Your Father, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, will also forgive you.

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܬܫܒܩܘܢ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܫܒܩ ܠܟܘܢ ܣܟܠܘܬܟܘܢ
15 But, if you don’t forgive mankind, Your Father also will not forgive you saklwathkun {your transgressions}.

ܐܡܬܝ ܕܝܢ ܕܨܝܡܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܬܗܘܘܢ ܟܡܝܪܐ ܐܝܟ ܢܣܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܡܚܒܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܦܪܨܘܦܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܬܚܙܘܢ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܨܝܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܩܒܠܘ ܐܓܪܗܘܢ
16 Now, when you fast, you shouldn’t be gloomy like the nasbay baphe {the pretenders/actors lit. the face takers}, for, they alter their faces, so that they may be seen by the sons of men that they are tsayamiyn {fasting}. Truly I say unto you, that they have received their reward.

ܐܢܬ ܕܝܢ ܡܐ ܕܨܐܡ ܐܢܬ ܐܫܝܓ ܐܦܝܟ ܘܡܫܘܚ ܪܫܟ
17 But you, when you are tsa’em {fasting}, wash aphayak {your face} and meshukh rishak {anoint your head},

ܐܝܟ ܕܠܐ ܬܬܚܙܐ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܨܐܡ ܐܢܬ ܐܠܐ ܠܐܒܘܟ ܕܒܟܣܝܐ ܘܐܒܘܟ ܕܚܙܐ ܠܟ ܒܟܣܝܐ ܗܘ ܢܦܪܥܟ
18 so that you won’t appear unto the sons of men that you are tsa’em {fasting}, but rather, unto Your Father who is in secret, and Your Father who sees you in secret, will Himself repay you.

ܠܐ ܬܣܝܡܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܣܝܡܬܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܐܬܪ ܕܣܣܐ ܘܐܟܠܐ ܡܚܒܠܝܢ ܘܐܝܟܐ ܕܓܢܒܐ ܦܠܫܝܢ ܘܓܢܒܝܢ
19 You are not to place treasure for yourself in the Ara {the Earth}, a place that the sasa {the moth} and the akla {the weevil} destroy, and where the ganabe {the thieves} break through and they steal.

ܐܠܐ ܣܝܡܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܣܝܡܬܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܠܐ ܣܣܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܟܠܐ ܡܚܒܠܝܢ ܘܐܝܟܐ ܕܓܢܒܐ ܠܐ ܦܠܫܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܓܢܒܝܢ
20 But rather, you are to place siymatha {treasure} in the Shmaya {the Heavens} where neither the sasa {the moth} nor the akla {the weevil} destroys, and where the ganabe {the thieves} don’t break through, and they don’t steal.

ܐܝܟܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܝܬܝܗ ܣܝܡܬܟܘܢ ܬܡܢ ܗܘ ܐܦ ܠܒܟܘܢ
21 For, where siymathkun {your treasure} is, there your heart is also.

ܫܪܓܐ ܕܦܓܪܐ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܥܝܢܐ ܐܢ ܥܝܢܟ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܗܘܐ ܦܫܝܛܐ ܐܦ ܟܠܗ ܦܓܪܟ ܢܗܝܪ ܗܘ
22 The shraga {the lamp} of the body is ayna {the eye}. If your eye, therefore, might be clear, your whole body is also illumined.

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܥܝܢܟ ܬܗܘܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܐܦ ܟܠܗ ܦܓܪܟ ܚܫܘܟܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܐܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܘܗܪܐ ܕܒܟ ܚܫܘܟܐ ܗܘ ܚܫܘܟܟ ܟܡܐ ܢܗܘܐ
23 But, if aynak {your eye} should be diseased, your whole body will be kheshuka {dark}. If therefore the nuhra {the light} that is in you, is kheshuka {dark}, how great kheshukak {your darkness} will be!

ܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܬܪܝܢ ܡܪܘܢ ܠܡܦܠܚ ܐܘ ܓܝܪ ܠܚܕ ܢܣܢܐ ܘܠܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܪܚܡ ܐܘ ܠܚܕ ܢܝܩܪ ܘܠܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܫܘܛ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܠܡܦܠܚ ܘܠܡܡܘܢܐ
24 No one is able to serve two maruan {lords}, for, either he will hate one, and will love the other, or, he will honor one, and will despise the other. You are not able to serve Alaha {God} and mamuna {money},

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܬܐܨܦܘܢ ܠܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܬܐܟܠܘܢ ܘܡܢܐ ܬܫܬܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܠܦܓܪܟܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܬܠܒܫܘܢ ܠܐ ܗܐ ܢܦܫܐ ܝܬܝܪܐ ܡܢ ܣܝܒܪܬܐ ܘܦܓܪܐ ܡܢ ܠܒܘܫܐ
25 Because of this, I say unto you, don’t be worried about your soul {yourself}, what you will eat, and what you will drink, and not your body, what you will wear. Behold, isn’t the naphsha {the soul} more than saybartha {food}, and the phagra {the body} than busha {clothing}?

ܚܘܪܘ ܒܦܪܚܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܕܠܐ ܙܪܥܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܚܨܕܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܚܡܠܝܢ ܒܐܘܨܪܐ ܘܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܡܬܪܣܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܗܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܝܬܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ
26 Look at the pharakhtha d’Shmaya {the fowl of the Heavens}; that they don’t sow and they don’t reap, and they don’t gather into storehouses, and Your Father, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, nourishes them. Behold, are you not more preferred than them?

ܡܢܘ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܟܕ ܝܨܦ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܘܣܦܘ ܥܠ ܩܘܡܬܗ ܐܡܬܐ ܚܕܐ
27 But, who from you, while worrying, is able to add one amtha {cubit} to his stature?

ܘܥܠ ܠܒܘܫܐ ܡܢܐ ܝܨܦܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܬܒܩܘ ܒܫܘܫܢܐ ܕܕܒܪܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܪܒܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܠܐܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܥܙܠܢ
28 And concerning busha {clothing}, why are you worrying? Consider the shushane {the lilies} of the dabra {the high pasture}, how they grow, that they don’t toil, and they don’t spin.

ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܦܠܐ ܫܠܝܡܘܢ ܒܟܠܗ ܫܘܒܚܗ ܐܬܟܣܝ ܐܝܟ ܚܕܐ ܡܢܗܝܢ
29 But, I say unto you, that not even Shliymun {Solomon}, in all his glory, was clothed like one from these.

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܥܡܝܪܐ ܕܚܩܠܐ ܕܝܘܡܢܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܘܡܚܪ ܢܦܠ ܒܬܢܘܪܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܡܠܒܫ ܠܐ ܣܓܝ ܝܬܝܪ ܠܟܘܢ ܙܥܘܪܝ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ
30 Now, if Alaha {God} clothes the amiyra d’khakla {the grass of the field} like this, which today exists, and tomorrow is thrown into the thanura {the oven}, doesn’t He much better for you, you zuray Haymanutha {little of Faith}?

ܠܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܐܨܦܘܢ ܐܘ ܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܢܐܟܘܠ ܐܘ ܡܢܐ ܢܫܬܐ ܐܘ ܡܢܐ ܢܬܟܣܐ
31 Therefore, you shouldn’t be anxious, or should say, “What will we nekul {eat}? Or, “What will we neshthe {drink}?” Or, “With what will we be nethkase {clothed}?”

ܟܠܗܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܗܘ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܠܗܝܢ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܝܕܥ ܕܐܦ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܬܒܥܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ
32 For, all these things the Amme {the Peoples/the Nations/Gentiles} are seeking, but, Your Father, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, knows that you also require all these things.

ܒܥܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܙܕܝܩܘܬܗ ܘܟܠܗܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܬܬܘܣܦܢ ܠܟܘܢ
33 But, you are to first seek The Malkutheh d’Alaha {The Kingdom of God}, and Zadiyqutheh {His Righteousness}, and all these things increase for you.

ܠܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܐܨܦܘܢ ܕܡܚܪ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܡܚܪ ܝܨܦ ܕܝܠܗ ܘܣܦܩ ܠܗ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܒܝܫܬܗ
34 Therefore, don’t be anxious for tomorrow, for, tomorrow is yatseph {anxious} of its own, and sufficient for the day is biyshtheh {its evil}.

Chapter 7
ܠܐ ܬܕܘܢܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܬܬܕܝܢܘܢ
1 You shouldn’t judge, so that you won’t be judged.

ܒܕܝܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܕܝܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܬܕܝܢܘܢ ܘܒܟܝܠܬܐ ܕܡܟܝܠܝܢ ܡܬܬܟܝܠ ܠܟܘܢ
2 For, by the judgment which you judge, you will be judged. And with the measure which you measure, it is measured unto you.

ܡܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܬ ܓܠܐ ܕܒܥܝܢܗ ܕܐܚܘܟ ܘܩܪܝܬܐ ܕܒܥܝܢܟ ܠܐ ܒܚܪ ܐܢܬ
3 But, why do you see the gela {the splinter} that is in the eye of your brother, and you don’t notice the qariytha {the beam} that is in your eye?

ܐܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܠܐܚܘܟ ܫܒܘܩ ܐܦܩ ܓܠܐ ܡܢ ܥܝܢܟ ܘܗܐ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܒܥܝܢܟ
4 Or, how do you say unto your brother, ‘Allow me to remove the gela {the splinter} from your eye,’ and behold, a qariytha {a beam} is in your own eye?

ܢܣܒ ܒܐܦܐ ܐܦܩ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܡܢ ܥܝܢܟ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܬܒܚܪ ܠܟ ܠܡܦܩܘ ܓܠܐ ܡܢ ܥܝܢܗ ܕܐܚܘܟ
5 You naseb baphe {lit. face takers i.e. pretenders/actors}! First remove the qariytha {the beam} from your eye, and then you can examine it for yourself to remove the gela {the splinter} from the eye of your brother.

ܠܐ ܬܬܠܘܢ ܩܘܕܫܐ ܠܟܠܒܐ ܘܠܐ ܬܪܡܘܢ ܡܪܓܢܝܬܟܘܢ ܩܕܡ ܚܙܝܪܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܕܘܫܘܢ ܐܢܝܢ ܒܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܢܗܦܟܘܢ ܢܒܙܥܘܢܟܘܢ
6 You shouldn’t give qudsha {a holy thing} unto qalbe {the dogs}, and you shouldn’t place marganyathkun {your pearls} in front of khaziyre {swine/pigs}, lest they should trample them with their feet, and they might turn and tear you.

ܫܐܠܘ ܘܢܬܝܗܒ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܥܘ ܘܬܫܟܚܘܢ ܩܘܫܘ ܘܢܬܦܬܚ ܠܟܘܢ
7 Ask, and it will be given unto you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened for you.

ܟܠ ܓܝܪ ܕܫܐܠ ܢܣܒ ܘܕܒܥܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܘܠܐܝܢܐ ܕܢܩܫ ܡܬܦܬܚ ܠܗ
8 For, all who asks, receives, and who seeks, finds, and unto the one who knocks, it is opened for him.

ܐܘ ܡܢܘ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܢܫܐܠܘܘܗܝ ܒܪܗ ܠܚܡܐ ܠܡܐ ܟܐܦܐ ܡܘܫܛ ܠܗ
9 Or, who is the gabra {the man} from you, if his son might ask him for lakhma {bread}, would he hold out a kepha {a rock} unto him?

ܘܐܢ ܢܘܢܐ ܢܫܐܠܝܘܗܝ ܠܡܐ ܚܘܝܐ ܡܘܫܛ ܠܗ
10 And if he should ask for a nuna {a fish}, would he hold out a khuya {a snake} unto him?

ܘܐܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܒܝܫܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܛܒܬܐ ܠܡܬܠ ܠܒܢܝܟܘܢ ܟܡܐ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܢܬܠ ܛܒܬܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܐܠܝܢ ܠܗ
11 And if, therefore, you who are evil, you know to give muhbatha tabatha {good gifts} unto your sons, how much more will Your Father, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, give good things unto those who ask Him.

ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܢܥܒܕܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܒܕܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܢܘ ܓܝܪ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܘܢܒܝܐ
12 All that which you desire that the sons of men should do for you, thus also you must do for them, for, this is The Numusa {The Law} and The Nabiye {The Prophets, i.e. what The Scriptures teach}.

ܥܘܠܘ ܒܬܪܥܐ ܐܠܝܨܐ ܕܦܬܐ ܗܘ ܬܪܥܐ ܘܐܪܘܝܚܐ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܡܘܒܠܐ ܠܐܒܕܢܐ ܘܣܓܝܐܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܙܠܝܢ ܒܗ
13 Enter in the narrow gate, because broad is the gate and wide is the way which leads unto abadana {destruction}, and many are those who go in it.

ܡܐ ܩܛܝܢ ܬܪܥܐ ܘܐܠܝܨܐ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܡܘܒܠܐ ܠܚܝܐ ܘܙܥܘܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܠܗ
14 How small the gate and narrow the way that leads unto Khaye {Life}, and few are those who find it.

ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܡܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܓܠܐ ܕܐܬܝܢ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܒܠܒܘܫܐ ܕܐܡܪܐ ܡܢ ܠܓܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܕܐܒܐ ܚܛܘܦܐ
15 Be careful from the nabiye dagale {the false prophets} who come to you in the clothing of lambs, but from within, they are ravenous wolves.

ܡܢ ܦܐܪܝܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܬܕܥܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܡܐ ܠܩܛܝܢ ܡܢ ܟܘܒܐ ܥܢܒܐ ܐܘ ܡܢ ܩܘܪܛܒܐ ܬܐܢܐ
16 Thereupon, from their fruits you will know them. What? Do men pick enbe {grapes} from thorns, or thine {figs} from thistles?

ܗܟܢܐ ܟܠ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܛܒܐ ܦܐܪܐ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܝܫܐ ܦܐܪܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܥܒܕ
17 Thus so, every good tree produces good fruits, but, an evil tree produces evil fruits.

ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܛܒܐ ܦܐܪܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܘܠܐ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܦܐܪܐ ܛܒܐ ܠܡܥܒܕ
18 A good tree isn’t able to produce evil fruits, and no evil tree produces good fruits.

ܟܠ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܥܒܕ ܦܐܪܐ ܛܒܐ ܡܬܦܣܩ ܘܒܢܘܪܐ ܢܦܠ
19 Every tree that doesn’t produce good fruits is cut down and thrown in the nuhra {the fire}.

ܡܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܦܐܪܝܗܘܢ ܬܕܥܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ
20 Therefore, from their fruits you will know them.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܟܠ ܕܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܡܪܝ ܡܪܝ ܥܐܠ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܥܒܕ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܒܝ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
21 It isn’t all who say unto Me “Mari, Mari,” {My Lord, My Lord}, who enters unto The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens}, but rather, whoever that does the will of My Father, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}.

ܣܓܝܐܐ ܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܝ ܒܗܘ ܝܘܡܐ ܡܪܝ ܡܪܝ ܠܐ ܒܫܡܟ ܐܬܢܒܝܢ ܘܒܫܡܟ ܫܐܕܐ ܐܦܩܢ ܘܒܫܡܟ ܚܝܠܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܥܒܕܢ
22 Many will say unto Me in that day, “Mari, Mari,” {My Lord, My Lord}, haven’t we prophesied in Your Name? And in Your Name cast out the shide {the demons}? And in Your Name performed many miracles!?”

ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܘܕܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܡܡܬܘܡ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܬܟܘܢ ܐܪܚܩܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢܝ ܦܠܚܝ ܥܘܠܐ
23 And then I will profess unto them that I never {lit. from everlasting} have known you. You must depart from Me, workers of iniquity!

ܟܠ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܫܡܥ ܡܠܝ ܗܠܝܢ ܘܥܒܕ ܠܗܝܢ ܢܬܕܡܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܚܟܝܡܐ ܗܘ ܕܒܢܐ ܒܝܬܗ ܥܠ ܫܘܥܐ
24 Therefore, all who hears My words, these, and does them, will be likened unto a gabra khakima {a wise man} who built his house upon shua {bedrock}.

ܘܢܚܬ ܡܛܪܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܢܗܪܘܬܐ ܘܢܫܒ ܪܘܚܐ ܘܐܬܛܪܝܘ ܒܗ ܒܒܝܬܐ ܗܘ ܘܠܐ ܢܦܠ ܫܬܐܣܘܗܝ ܓܝܪ ܥܠ ܫܘܥܐ ܣܝܡܢ ܗܘܝ
25 And the rain descended, and the rivers came, and the winds blew, and they thrust against that house, and it didn’t fall, for, its foundation was placed on shua {bedrock}.

ܘܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܫܡܥ ܡܠܝ ܗܠܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܥܒܕ ܠܗܝܢ ܢܬܕܡܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܣܟܠܐ ܕܒܢܐ ܒܝܬܗ ܥܠ ܚܠܐ
26 And all who hears My words, these, and doesn’t do them, will be likened unto a gabra sakla {a foolish man} who built his house on khala {sand}.

ܘܢܚܬ ܡܛܪܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܢܗܪܘܬܐ ܘܢܫܒ ܪܘܚܐ ܘܐܬܛܪܝܘ ܒܒܝܬܐ ܗܘ ܘܢܦܠ ܘܗܘܬ ܡܦܘܠܬܗ ܪܒܐ
27 And the metra {the rain} descended, and the nahrutha {the rivers} came, and the rukhe {the winds} blew, and they thrust against that house, and it fell. And its fall was great!”

ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܫܠܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܬܗܝܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܢܫܐ ܥܠ ܝܘܠܦܢܗ
28 And it happened that when Eshu {Y’shu} had finished these words, the crowds were marveling about His doctrine.

ܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܟ ܡܫܠܛܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܣܦܪܝܗܘܢ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ
29 For, He was teaching them as a Mashalta {an Authority}, and not like saphrayhun {their Scribes} and the Phrishe {the Pharisees}.

Chapter 8
ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܢܚܬ ܡܢ ܛܘܪܐ ܢܩܦܘܗܝ ܟܢܫܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ
1 Now when He descended from the tura {the mountain}, large crowds followed Him.

ܘܗܐ ܓܪܒܐ ܚܕ ܐܬܐ ܣܓܕ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܐܢ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܬ ܠܡܕܟܝܘܬܝ
2 And behold, a certain garba {leper} came, worshiped Him, and said, “Mari {My Lord} if you desire, you are able to make me clean!”

ܘܦܫܛ ܐܝܕܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܪܒ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܬܕܟܐ ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܐܬܕܟܝ ܓܪܒܗ
3 And Eshu {Y’shu} stretched out His hand, and touched him, and said, “I desire, be clean!” And at that moment garbeh {his leprosy} was cleansed.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܚܙܝ ܠܡܐ ܠܐܢܫ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܐܠܐ ܙܠ ܚܘܐ ܢܦܫܟ ܠܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܪܒ ܩܘܪܒܢܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܦܩܕ ܡܘܫܐ ܠܣܗܕܘܬܗܘܢ
4 And Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “Why look for a nash {a man} to tell, rather, go show your soul {yourself} unto the Kahne {the Priests} and qareb {offer} the qurbana {the offering}, just as Mushe {Moses} commanded, for their testimony.”

ܟܕ ܥܠ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ ܩܪܒ ܠܗ ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܚܕ ܘܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܗ
5 Then, when Eshu {Y’shu} had entered Kaparnakhum {Capernaum}, a certain Qentruna {Centurion} approached Him, and was seeking from Him,

ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܛܠܝܝ ܪܡܐ ܒܒܝܬܐ ܘܡܫܪܝ ܘܒܝܫܐܝܬ ܡܫܬܢܩ
6 and was saying, “Mari {My Lord}, talayi {my boy} is lying down in the house and is paralyzed, and evilly tormented.

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢܐ ܐܬܐ ܘܐܣܝܘܗܝ
7 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “I will come and will heal him.”

ܥܢܐ ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܗܘ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܠܐ ܫܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܬܥܘܠ ܬܚܝܬ ܡܛܠܠܝ ܐܠܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܐܡܪ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܘܢܬܐܣܐ ܛܠܝܝ
8 That Qentruna {Centurion} answered and said, “Mari {My Lord}, I’m not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but rather, only say the word, and talayi {my boy} will be healed.

ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܬܚܝܬ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܘܐܝܬ ܬܚܝܬ ܐܝܕܝ ܐܣܛܪܛܝܘܛܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܗܢܐ ܕܙܠ ܘܐܙܠ ܘܠܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܬܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܘܠܥܒܕܝ ܕܥܒܕ ܗܕܐ ܘܥܒܕ
9 For, I also am a gabra {a man} who is under authority, and under my power {lit. my hand} there are soldiers, and I say unto this one ‘go’ and he goes, and unto another ‘come’ and he comes, and unto my servant ‘do this’ and he does it.”

ܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܬܕܡܪ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܕܐܬܝܢ ܥܡܗ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܦ ܠܐ ܒܝܣܪܝܠ ܐܫܟܚܬ ܐܝܟ ܗܕܐ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ
10 Now, when Eshu {Y’shu} heard this, He was amazed, and said unto those that were coming with Him, “Amiyn {Truly} I say unto you, that not even in IysraIyl {Israel} have I found Haymanutha {Faith} like this!

ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܣܓܝܐܐ ܢܐܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܡܕܢܚܐ ܘܡܢ ܡܥܪܒܐ ܘܢܣܬܡܟܘܢ ܥܡ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܘܐܝܣܚܩ ܘܝܥܩܘܒ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
11 But, I say unto you that many will come from the East and from the West and will recline with Abraham, Iskhaq, and Yaqub in The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens},

ܒܢܝܗ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܢܦܩܘܢ ܠܚܫܘܟܐ ܒܪܝܐ ܬܡܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܟܝܐ ܘܚܘܪܩ ܫܢܐ
12 but, the sons {i.e. the children} of The Malkutha {The Kingdom} will be cast unto the outer kheshuka {darkness}. There will be weeping and teeth gnashing!”

ܘܐܡܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܗܘ ܙܠ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܗܝܡܢܬ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܘܐܬܐܣܝ ܛܠܝܗ ܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ
13 And Eshu {Y’shu} said unto the Qentruna {the Centurion}, “Go, in such a way that you have believed, it will be unto you.” And his boy was healed at that moment!

ܘܐܬܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܚܙܐ ܠܚܡܬܗ ܕܪܡܝܐ ܘܐܚܝܕܐ ܠܗ ܐܫܬܐ
14 And Eshu {Y’shu} came unto the house of Shimeun {Simeon} and saw his mother-in-law who was lying down, and a fever had seized her.

ܘܩܪܒ ܠܐܝܕܗ ܘܫܒܩܬܗ ܐܫܬܐ ܘܩܡܬ ܘܡܫܡܫܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܗܘܢ
15 And He touched her hand and her fever left her, and she arose and was serving them.

ܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܪܡܫܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܕܝܘܢܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܐܦܩ ܕܝܘܝܗܘܢ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܘܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܝܫܐܝܬ ܥܒܝܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܣܝ ܐܢܘܢ
16 Now, when it was ramsha {evening}, they brought before Him many daywane {possessed ones}, and He cast out daywayhun {their demons}, with a word, and all of those who were evilly affected, He healed them.

ܐܝܟ ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܒܝܕ ܐܫܥܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܗܘ ܢܣܒ ܟܐܒܝܢ ܘܟܘܪܗܢܝܢ ܢܛܥܢ
17 So that the thing which was spoken through EshaYa Nabiya {Isaiah, the Prophet} might be fulfilled, who said that ‘He will take our griefs, and He will bear our diseases.’

ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܟܢܫܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܕܚܕܝܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܦܩܕ ܕܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܠܥܒܪܐ
18 Now, when Eshu {Y’shu} saw the many crowds that were surrounding Him, He commanded that they should depart unto the crossing {i.e. the further bank}.

ܘܩܪܒ ܣܦܪܐ ܚܕ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܪܒܝ ܐܬܐ ܒܬܪܟ ܠܐܬܪ ܕܐܙܠ ܐܢܬ
19 And a certain Saphra {Scribe} approached Him, and said unto Him, “Rabi {My Master}, I will follow you unto the place you are going.”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܬܥܠܐ ܢܩܥܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܠܦܪܚܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܡܛܠܠܐ ܠܒܪܗ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܠܝܬ ܠܗ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܢܣܡܘܟ ܪܫܗ
20 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “There are neqe {lairs/dens} for the thale {the foxes}, and matlala {shelters} for the pharakhtha d’Shmaya {the fowl of the Heavens}, but, The Son of Man has nowhere that He might lay His head.”

ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܝ ܐܦܣ ܠܝ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܐܙܠ ܐܩܒܘܪ ܐܒܝ
21 Then another from His Disciples said unto Him, “Mari {My Lord}, allow me first to go bury my father.”

ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ ܘܫܒܘܩ ܡܝܬܐ ܩܒܪܝܢ ܡܝܬܝܗܘܢ
22 But, Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “Come, follow Me, and let the miythe {the dead} bury their dead.

ܘܟܕ ܣܠܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܣܦܝܢܬܐ ܣܠܩܘ ܥܡܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
23 And when Eshu {Y’shu} went up into a sphintha {a boat/ship}, His Disciples went up with Him.

ܘܗܐ ܙܘܥܐ ܪܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܝܡܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܠܦܐ ܬܬܟܣܐ ܡܢ ܓܠܠܐ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܡܝܟ ܗܘܐ
24 And behold, a great agitation happened in the yama {the sea}, so that the elpha {the ship} was covered by the galle {the waves}! Now He, Eshu {Y’shu}, was sleeping,

ܘܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܥܝܪܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܪܢ ܦܨܢ ܐܒܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ
25 and His Disciples approached Him, woke Him, and said unto Him, “Maran {Our Lord}, deliver us, we are perishing!”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܡܢܐ ܕܚܘܠܬܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܙܥܘܪܝ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܡ ܘܟܐܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܘܒܝܡܐ ܘܗܘܐ ܫܠܝܐ ܪܒܐ
26 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “Why are you fearful, you zuray Haymanutha {little of faith}?” Then He stood up and rebuked the rukha {the wind} and the yama {the sea}, and there was a great calm.

ܐܢܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܕܡܪܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܡܢܘ ܗܢܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܘܝܡܐ ܡܫܬܡܥܝܢ ܠܗ
27 Now, some were amazed, and said, “Who is this that the winds and the sea listen to Him?”

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܥܒܪܐ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܕܓܕܪܝܐ ܐܪܥܘܗܝ ܬܪܝܢ ܕܝܘܢܐ ܕܢܦܩܝܢ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܩܒܘܪܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܕܛܒ ܐܝܟ ܕܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܢܫܟܚ ܢܥܒܪ ܒܗܝ ܐܘܪܚܐ
28 And when Eshu {Y’shu} came to the crossing {the further bank}, unto the region of the Gadraye {the Gadarenes}, two daywane {possessed ones} met Him, who were coming out from the cemetery, very evil, so that none were able to cross over by that way.

ܘܩܥܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܡܐ ܠܢ ܘܠܟ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܠܟܐ ܩܕܡ ܙܒܢܐ ܕܬܫܢܩܢ
29 And they cried out and said, “What do we have to do with each other, Eshu {Y’shu}, son of Alaha {God}? Have you come here before the time, so that you might torment us?”

ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܗܠ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܒܩܪܐ ܕܚܙܝܪܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܕܪܥܝܐ
30 Now, there was far off from them a large herd of khaziyre {swine/pigs}, feeding.

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܫܐܕܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢ ܡܦܩ ܐܢܬ ܠܢ ܐܦܣ ܠܢ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܠܒܩܪܐ ܕܚܙܝܪܐ
31 Then those shide {demons} were seeking from Him, and they were saying, “If you cast us out, allow us to go into the herd of khaziyre {swine/pigs}.”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܙܠܘ ܘܡܚܕܐ ܢܦܩܘ ܘܥܠܘ ܒܚܙܝܪܐ ܘܟܠܗ ܒܩܪܐ ܗܝ ܬܪܨܬ ܠܥܠ ܠܫܩܝܦܐ ܘܢܦܠܘ ܒܝܡܐ ܘܡܝܬܘ ܒܡܝܐ
32 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them “Go!” And immediately they went out and entered into the khaziyre {the swine}, and all that herd went straight over a shaqiypha {a cliff} and fell into the yama {the sea/lake}, and died in the maya {the waters}.

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܪܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܪܩܘ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܚܘܝܘ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܗܘܐ ܘܕܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܘܢܐ
33 Then those who were tending them, fled, and went unto the madintha {the city} and related every thing that had happened, and about those daywane {possessed ones}.

ܘܢܦܩܬ ܟܠܗ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܠܐܘܪܥܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܒܥܘ ܡܢܗ ܕܢܫܢܐ ܡܢ ܬܚܘܡܝܗܘܢ
34 And the entire madintha {city} out went to meet with Eshu {Y’shu}, and when they saw Him, they sought from Him that He would depart from their borders.

Chapter 9
ܘܣܠܩ ܠܐܠܦܐ ܘܥܒܪ ܐܬܐ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܗ
1 And He went up into an elpha {a ship}, and crossing over came unto His own city.

ܘܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܡܫܪܝܐ ܟܕ ܪܡܐ ܒܥܪܣܐ ܘܚܙܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘ ܡܫܪܝܐ ܐܬܠܒܒ ܒܪܝ ܫܒܝܩܝܢ ܠܟ ܚܛܗܝܟ
2 And they brought unto Him an masharya {a paralytic} while he was laying in an arsa {a bed}. And Eshu {Y’shu} saw their faith and said unto that masharya {paralytic}, “Take heart, My son, your sins are forgiven you!”

ܐܢܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܣܦܪܐ ܐܡܪܘ ܒܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܗܢܐ ܡܓܕܦ
3 Then some from the Saphre {the Scribes} said in their souls {in themselves}, “This one blasphemes!”

ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܡܚܫܒܬܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܡܬܚܫܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܒܠܒܟܘܢ
4 But, Eshu {Y’shu} knew their thoughts, and said unto them, “Why are you thinking evil in your heart?

ܡܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܦܫܝܩ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܕܫܒܝܩܝܢ ܠܟ ܚܛܗܝܟ ܐܘ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܩܘܡ ܗܠܟ
5 For, what is easier to say, ‘your sins are forgiven’, or to say ‘arise, walk?’

ܕܬܕܥܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܠܡܫܒܩ ܚܛܗܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘ ܡܫܪܝܐ ܩܘܡ ܫܩܘܠ ܥܪܣܟ ܘܙܠ ܠܒܝܬܟ
6 But, that you may know that there is authority for The Son of Man in the Ara {the Earth} to forgive sins; (He said unto that paralytic) ‘Arise, take up arsak {your bed}, and go to your house.’”

ܘܩܡ ܐܙܠ ܠܒܝܬܗ
7 And he arose and went to his house.

ܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܕܝܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܚܠܘ ܘܫܒܚܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܗܒ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܕܐܝܟ ܗܢܐ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ
8 Now, when the crowds saw those things, they were afraid, and they gave praise unto Alaha {God} who gave authority such as this unto the sons of men {i.e. mankind}.

ܘܟܕ ܥܒܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܚܙܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܝܬܒ ܒܝܬ ܡܟܣܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܡܬܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ ܘܩܡ ܐܙܠ ܒܬܪܗ
9 And when Eshu {Y’shu} crossed over from there, He saw a gabra {a man} who was sitting in the beth Makse {the Tax-Collector’s house}, whose name was Mathi {Matthew}, and He said unto him, “Come, follow Me.” And he arose and went following Him.

ܘܟܕ ܣܡܝܟܝܢ ܒܒܝܬܐ ܐܬܘ ܡܟܣܐ ܘܚܛܝܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܐܣܬܡܟܘ ܥܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܥܡ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
10 And when they reclined in the house, Makse {Tax-Collectors} and many Khataye {Sinners} reclined with Eshu {Y’shu} and with His Disciples.

ܘܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܠܡܢܐ ܥܡ ܡܟܣܐ ܘܚܛܝܐ ܠܥܣ ܪܒܟܘܢ
11 And when the Phrishe {the Pharisees} saw it, they said unto His Disciples “Why is rabkun {your master} dining with the Makse {the Tax-Collectors} and with the Khataye {the Sinners}?!”

ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܣܢܝܩܝܢ ܚܠܝܡܐ ܥܠ ܐܣܝܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܝܫܐܝܬ ܥܒܝܕܝܢ
12 But, when Eshu {Y’shu} heard it, He said unto them, “The healthy don’t need an Asya {a Physician}, but rather, those which are evilly affected.

ܙܠܘ ܝܠܦܘ ܡܢܘ ܚܢܢܐ ܒܥܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܕܒܚܬܐ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܬܝܬ ܕܐܩܪܐ ܠܙܕܝܩܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܚܛܝܐ
13 Go learn what this means: ‘I require khanana {mercy}, and not debkhatha {sacrifice},’ for, I didn’t come that I might call the righteous, but rather, the Khataye {the Sinners}.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܡܢܐ ܚܢܢ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܨܝܡܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܣܓܝ ܘܬܠܡܝܕܝܟ ܠܐ ܨܝܡܝܢ
14 Then The Disciples of Yukhanan {John} approached Him, and said, “Why do we and the Phrishe {the Pharisees} fast much, and your Disciples don’t tsaymiyn {fast}?”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܠܡܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܒܢܘܗܝ ܕܓܢܘܢܐ ܠܡܨܡ ܟܡܐ ܕܚܬܢܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܐܬܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܟܕ ܢܫܬܩܠ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܚܬܢܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܨܘܡܘܢ
15 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “Why? Are the sons of The G’nuna {The Wedding-Chamber} able to fast as long as The Khathana {The Bridegroom} is with them? But, the days are coming when The Khathna {The Bridegroom} will be taken from them, and then they will fast.

ܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܪܡܐ ܐܘܪܩܥܬܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܥܠ ܢܚܬܐ ܒܠܝܐ ܕܠܐ ܬܬܘܦ ܡܠܝܘܬܗ ܡܢ ܗܘ ܢܚܬܐ ܘܢܗܘܐ ܒܙܥܐ ܝܬܝܪܐ
16 No nash {man} puts a new urqatha {patch-cloth} on an old garment, so that the malyuthah {the patch} won’t pull away from that nakhtha {garment}, and the tear would be greater.

ܘܠܐ ܪܡܝܢ ܚܡܪܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܒܙܩܐ ܒܠܝܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܨܛܪܝܢ ܙܩܐ ܘܚܡܪܐ ܡܬܐܫܕ ܘܙܩܐ ܐܒܕܢ ܐܠܐ ܪܡܝܢ ܚܡܪܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܒܙܩܐ ܚܕܬܬܐ ܘܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܡܬܢܛܪܝܢ
17 And they don’t put khamra khadtha {new wine} in zeqe blayatha {old skins}, so that the zeqe {the skins} won’t tear and the khamra {the wine} pours out and the zeqe {the skins} are ruined. But rather, they put khamra khadtha {new wine} in zeqe khadthatha {new skins}, and they both are preserved.”

ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܐܬܐ ܐܪܟܘܢܐ ܚܕ ܩܪܒ ܣܓܕ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܒܪܬܝ ܗܫܐ ܡܝܬܬ ܐܠܐ ܬܐ ܣܝܡ ܐܝܕܟ ܥܠܝܗ ܘܬܚܐ
18 Now, while He was speaking these things with them, a certain Arkuna {Ruler} approached, worshiped Him, and said, “My daughter just died, but come, place your hand upon her, and she will live!”

ܘܩܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ
19 And Eshu {Y’shu} and His Disciples arose and they departed, following him.

ܘܗܐ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܕܪܕܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܡܗ ܫܢܝܢ ܬܪܬܥܣܪܐ ܐܬܬ ܡܢ ܒܣܬܪܗ ܘܩܪܒܬ ܠܩܪܢܐ ܕܠܒܘܫܗ
20 And behold, an anttha {a woman} who had flowing blood, twelve years, came from behind Him and touched the qarna {lit. the horn i.e. the corner} of His clothes.

ܐܡܪܐ ܗܘܬ ܓܝܪ ܒܢܦܫܗ ܐܦܢ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܠܡܐܢܗ ܩܪܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܬܐܣܝܐ ܐܢܐ
21 For, she was saying in her soul {herself} “Even if I only touch His garment, I am healed.”

ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܦܢܝ ܚܙܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܬܠܒܒܝ ܒܪܬܝ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܟܝ ܐܚܝܬܟܝ ܘܐܬܐܣܝܬ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܗܝ ܡܢ ܗܝ ܫܥܬܐ
22 Then Eshu {Y’shu} turned, saw her, and said unto her, “Take heart My daughter, your faith has made you alive.” And that anttha {woman} was healed from that moment!

ܘܐܬܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܒܝܬܗ ܕܐܪܟܘܢܐ ܘܚܙܐ ܙܡܪܐ ܘܟܢܫܐ ܕܡܫܬܓܫܝܢ
23 And Eshu {Y’shu} came unto the house of the Arkuna {the Ruler} and saw the Zamare {the Pipers/the Musicians} and the stirred-up crowds,

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܪܘܩܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܛܠܝܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܐ ܡܝܬܬ ܐܠܐ ܕܡܟܐ ܗܝ ܘܓܚܟܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ
24 and said unto them, “Go away, for, the talitha {the young girl} isn’t dead, but rather, is sleeping.” And they were laughing at Him.

ܘܟܕ ܐܦܩ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܥܠ ܐܚܕܗ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܘܩܡܬ ܛܠܝܬܐ
25 And when He had expelled the crowds, He entered, took her by the hand, and the talitha {the young girl} arose!

ܘܢܦܩ ܛܒܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܐܪܥܐ ܗܝ
26 And this news went out in all that land.

ܘܟܕ ܥܒܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܕܒܩܘܗܝ ܣܡܝܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܕܩܥܝܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝܢ ܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ
27 And when Eshu {Y’shu} crossed over from there, two smaya {blind men} joined Him, crying out and saying, “Have mercy upon us, Son of David!”

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܠܒܝܬܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܗܢܘܢ ܣܡܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܐ ܗܕܐ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܝܢ ܡܪܢ
28 And when He came unto the house, those smaya {blind men} approached Him. Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said unto Him, “Yes, Maran {Our Lord}.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܒ ܠܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܗܝܡܢܬܘܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ
29 Then He touched their eyes, and said, “As that you have believed, it will be unto you.”

ܘܡܚܕܐ ܐܬܦܬܚ ܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܟܐܐ ܒܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܚܙܘ ܠܡܐ ܐܢܫ ܢܕܥ
30 And immediately their eyes were opened, and Eshu {Y’shu} charged {lit. exclaimed against} them, “See that no one should know it!”

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܢܦܩܘ ܐܛܒܘܗܝ ܒܟܠܗ ܐܪܥܐ ܗܝ
31 But, they went out and spread His fame in all that land.

ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܚܪܫܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܕܝܘܐ
32 And when Eshu {Y’shu} went out, they brought a kharsha {a mute} unto Him who had a daywa {a demon} upon him.

ܘܡܢ ܕܢܦܩ ܕܝܘܐ ܡܠܠ ܗܘ ܚܪܫܐ ܘܐܬܕܡܪܘ ܟܢܫܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܐ ܡܡܬܘܡ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܗܟܢܐ ܒܝܣܪܝܠ
33 And from the time the daywa {the demon} departed, that kharsha {mute} spoke, and the crowds were amazed, and they said, “Such a thing has never been seen in IysraIyl {Israel}!”

ܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܪܫܐ ܕܕܝܘܐ ܡܦܩ ܕܝܘܐ
34 But, the Phrishe {the Pharisees} were saying, “By the chief of the daywe {the demons}, He casts out the daywe {the demons}!”

ܘܡܬܟܪܟ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܘܒܩܘܪܝܐ ܘܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܗܘܢ ܘܡܟܪܙ ܣܒܪܬܐ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܘܡܐܣܐ ܟܠ ܟܘܪܗܢܝܢ ܘܟܠ ܟܐܒܝܢ
35 And Eshu {Y’shu} was going around in all the cities and in the villages and was Teaching in Kenushathun {their Synagogues/Assemblies}, and was Proclaiming The Sabartha d’Malkutha {The Hopeful Message of The Kingdom}, and was healing all kurhaniyn {their diseases} and all kibiyn {their pains}.

ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܠܐܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܫܪܝܢ ܐܝܟ ܥܪܒܐ ܕܠܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܪܥܝܐ
36 Now, when Eshu {Y’shu} saw the kenshe {the crowds}, He had compassion upon them who were weary and were dwelling like sheep who have no shepherd.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܚܨܕܐ ܣܓܝ ܘܦܥܠܐ ܙܥܘܪܝܢ
37 And He said unto His Disciples “The Khatsada {The Harvest} is great, and the workers few.

ܒܥܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܢ ܡܪܐ ܚܨܕܐ ܕܢܦܩ ܦܥܠܐ ܠܚܨܕܗ
38 Therefore ask Mare Khatsada {The Harvest Lord} that He would send workers unto His Harvest.

Chapter 10
ܘܩܪܐ ܠܬܪܥܣܪ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܥܠ ܪܘܚܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܕܢܦܩܘܢ ܘܠܡܐܣܝܘ ܟܠ ܟܐܒ ܘܟܘܪܗܢ
1 And He called His Twelve Disciples and gave unto them authority over unclean spirits, so that they would cast them out, and to heal every pain and disease.

ܕܝܠܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܬܪܥܣܪ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܫܡܗܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܩܕܡܝܗܘܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܢܕܪܐܘܣ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܘܝܥܩܘܒ ܒܪ ܙܒܕܝ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܚܘܗܝ
2 Now, of The Twelve Shlikhe {Sent Ones}: Their own names are these; The first of them is Shimeun {Simeon}, who is called ‘Kepha’ {The Rock}, and Andreus {Andrew} his brother, and Yaqub {Jacob/James} the son of Zabday {Zebedee}, and Yukhanan {John} his brother,

ܘܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܘܒܪ ܬܘܠܡܝ ܘܬܐܘܡܐ ܘܡܬܝ ܡܟܣܐ ܘܝܥܩܘܒ ܒܪ ܚܠܦܝ ܘܠܒܝ ܕܐܬܟܢܝ ܬܕܝ
3 and Philipus {Philip}, and Bar-Thulmi {Bartholomew}, and Thauma {Thomas}, and Mathi Maksa {Matthew, the Tax-Collector}, and Yaqub bar-Khalphi {Jacob/James, the son of Alpheus}, and Labi {Lebbaeus}, who is called Thadi {Thaddaeus}.

ܘܫܡܥܘܢ ܩܢܢܝܐ ܘܝܗܘܕܐ ܣܟܪܝܘܛܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܫܠܡܗ
4 And Shimeun Qanania {Simeon, the Zealot}, and Yehuda Skariuta {Judah/Judas, the Iscariot}, he who betrayed Him {lit. handed Him over}.

ܠܗܠܝܢ ܬܪܥܣܪ ܫܕܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܦܩܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܚܢܦܐ ܠܐ ܬܐܙܠܘܢ ܘܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܫܡܪܝܐ ܠܐ ܬܥܠܘܢ
5 Eshu {Y’shu} sent these Twelve, and commanded them and said, “Don’t go in the urkha d’Khanphe {the way of the Pagans}, and don’t enter into a madintha d’Shamraye {a city of the Samaritans}.

ܙܠܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܠܘܬ ܥܪܒܐ ܕܐܒܕܘ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܝܣܪܝܠ
6 But, you are to especially go to the Sheep who are lost from Beth IysraIyl {The House of Israel}.

ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܟܪܙܘ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܕܩܪܒܬ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
7 And while you are going, Proclaim and say “The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens} has come near.”

ܟܪܝܗܐ ܐܣܘ ܘܓܪܒܐ ܕܟܘ ܘܕܝܘܐ ܐܦܩܘ ܡܓܢ ܢܣܒܬܘܢ ܡܓܢ ܗܒܘ
8 Heal the krihe {the sick} and cleanse the garbe {the lepers} and cast out the daywe {the demons}. Freely you have received, freely give.

ܠܐ ܬܩܢܘܢ ܕܗܒܐ ܘܠܐ ܣܐܡܐ ܘܠܐ ܢܚܫܐ ܒܟܝܣܝܟܘܢ
9 Don’t acquire dahba {gold}, nor sima {silver}, nor nakhasha {brass} in kisaykun {your money sacks},

ܘܠܐ ܬܪܡܠܐ ܠܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܠܐ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܟܘܬܝܢܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܡܣܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܫܒܛܐ ܫܘܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܦܥܠܐ ܣܝܒܪܬܗ
10 and no tharmala {a wallet} for the road, and neither two kuthinyan {tunics}, and no masane {sandals}, and no shabta {stave}. Sufficient for a phala {a laborer} is saybartheh {his food}.

ܠܐܝܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܘ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܕܥܐܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ ܫܐܠܘ ܡܢܘ ܫܘܐ ܒܗ ܘܬܡܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܦܩܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
11 But, into whatever madintha {city} or qriytha {village} that you enter, you are to ask who is worthy in it, and be there until you depart.

ܘܡܐ ܕܥܐܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܒܝܬܐ ܫܐܠܘ ܫܠܡܗ ܕܒܝܬܐ
12 And when you are entering into a baytha {a house}, ask for the peace of that baytha {house/household}.

ܘܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܫܘܐ ܒܝܬܐ ܫܠܡܟܘܢ ܢܐܬܐ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܫܘܐ ܫܠܡܟܘܢ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܢܦܢܐ
13 And if that baytha {house/household} is worthy, shlamkun {your peace} will come upon it, but, if it isn’t worthy, shlamkun {your peace} will return upon you.

ܡܢ ܕܠܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܩܒܠ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܫܡܥ ܡܠܝܟܘܢ ܟܕ ܢܦܩܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܒܝܬܐ ܐܘ ܡܢ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܗܝ ܦܨܘ ܚܠܐ ܡܢ ܪܓܠܝܟܘܢ
14 Now, whoever doesn’t receive you, and doesn’t hear {i.e. respond to} your words, when you depart from that baytha {house}, or from that qriytha {village}, shake off the khela {the dust} from reglaykun {your feet}.

ܘܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐܪܥܐ ܕܣܕܘܡ ܘܕܥܡܘܪܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܢܝܚ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܕܝܢܐ ܐܘ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܗܝ
15 And amiyn {truly} I say unto you, that for the land of Sadum {Sodom} and of Amura {Gomorrah} it will be better off in The Day of Judgment than for that madintha {city}.

ܗܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܫܕܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܐܡܪܐ ܒܝܢܝ ܕܐܒܐ ܗܘܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܚܟܝܡܐ ܐܝܟ ܚܘܘܬܐ ܘܬܡܝܡܐ ܐܝܟ ܝܘܢܐ
16 Behold, I am sending you out as emre {lambs} among dibe {wolves}, therefore you are to be wise as khuwatha {serpents} and harmless as yawne {doves}.

ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܡܫܠܡܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܠܒܝܬ ܕܝܢܐ ܘܒܟܢܘܫܬܗܘܢ ܢܢܓܕܘܢܟܘܢ
17 So then, from the sons of men be careful, for, they will deliver you unto the house of judgments, and they will scourge you in Kenushathun {their Synagogues/Assemblies},

ܘܩܕܡ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܘܡܠܟܐ ܡܩܪܒܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܛܠܬܝ ܠܣܗܕܘܬܐ ܕܝܠܗܘܢ ܘܕܥܡܡܐ
18 and bring you before Higmune {Governors} and Malke {Kings} on account of Me, for a testimony of them and of the Gentiles.

ܐܡܬܝ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܫܠܡܘܢܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܬܐܨܦܘܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܐܘ ܡܢܐ ܬܡܠܠܘܢ ܡܬܝܗܒ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܒܗܝ ܫܥܬܐ ܡܐ ܕܬܡܠܠܘܢ
19 Now, whenever they deliver you up, don’t be concerned how, or what, you will say, for, in that hour it will be given unto you what you should say.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܐܠܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܡܡܠܠܐ ܒܟܘܢ
20 For, it will not be you speaking, but rather, The Rukha d’Abukun {The Spirit of Your Father} speaking in you.

ܢܫܠܡ ܕܝܢ ܐܚܐ ܠܐܚܘܗܝ ܠܡܘܬܐ ܘܐܒܐ ܠܒܪܗ ܘܢܩܘܡܘܢ ܒܢܝܐ ܥܠ ܐܒܗܝܗܘܢ ܘܢܡܝܬܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ
21 Then a brother will deliver his brother unto death, and a father, his son. And sons will rise up against their fathers, and will kill them.

ܘܬܗܘܘܢ ܣܢܝܐܝܢ ܡܢ ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܡܛܠ ܫܡܝ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܣܝܒܪ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܚܪܬܐ ܗܘ ܢܚܐ
22 And from every one, you will be hated on account of My Name, but, whoever that endures until the end, he will live {or, be saved}.

ܡܐ ܕܪܕܦܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܥܪܘܩܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܐܚܪܬܐ ܐܡܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܬܫܠܡܘܢ ܐܢܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
23 Now, when they persecute you in this madintha {city}, you are to flee unto another, for, amiyn {truly} I say unto you, that you will not complete all the cities of Beth IysraIyl {The House of Israel} until The Son of Man will come.

ܠܝܬ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܪܒܗ ܘܠܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܡܢ ܡܪܗ
24 There is no disciple who is greater than Rabeh {his Master}, and neither an abda {a servant} than Mareh {his Lord}.

ܣܦܩ ܠܗ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܪܒܗ ܘܠܥܒܕܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܪܗ ܐܢ ܠܡܪܗ ܕܒܝܬܐ ܩܪܘ ܒܥܠܙܒܘܒ ܚܕ ܟܡܐ ܠܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ
25 It is sufficient for a Talmiyda {a Disciple/Student} that he should be like Rabeh {his Master/Teacher}, and for an abda {slave/servant} like Mareh {his Lord}. If they call The Mareh d’Baytha {The Lord of The House}, “Belzbub” {Beelzebub}, how much more any one of the sons of His House.

ܠܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܕܚܠܘܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܠܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܡܕܡ ܕܟܣܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܬܓܠܐ ܘܕܡܛܫܝ ܕܠܐ ܢܬܝܕܥ
26 Therefore, don’t be afraid of them, for, there isn’t anything that is covered, that will not be revealed, and that is hidden, that will not be made known.

ܡܕܡ ܕܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܚܫܘܟܐ ܐܘܡܪܘܗܝ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܢܗܝܪܐ ܘܡܕܡ ܕܒܐܕܢܝܟܘܢ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܟܪܙܘ ܥܠ ܐܓܪܐ
27 Anything I say unto you in kheshuka {darkness}, you are to declare it in the nahiyra {the light}, and anything that you hear in your ears, you are to Proclaim upon the rooftops.

ܘܠܐ ܬܕܚܠܘܢ ܡܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܩܛܠܝܢ ܦܓܪܐ ܢܦܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܠܡܩܛܠ ܕܚܠܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܡܢ ܡܢ ܕܡܫܟܚ ܕܠܢܦܫܐ ܘܠܦܓܪܐ ܢܘܒܕ ܒܓܗܢܐ
28 And don’t be afraid of those who kill the phagra {the body}, but are not able to kill the naphsha {the soul}, but especially be afraid of the One who is able to destroy naphsha {the soul}, and the phagra {the body}, in Gihana {Gehenna}.

ܠܐ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܨܦܪܝܢ ܡܙܕܒܢܢ ܒܐܣܪ ܘܚܕܐ ܡܢܗܝܢ ܒܠܥܕ ܡܢ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܢܦܠܐ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ
29 Are not two sephriyn {sparrows} sold for a basar {a small coin, equal to three farthings}, and without Your Father, not one from them falls upon the ground.

ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܡܢܐ ܕܪܫܟܘܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܡܢܝܢ ܐܢܝܢ
30 But of you, even all the mene d’rishkun {the hairs of your head} are numbered.

ܠܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܕܚܠܘܢ ܡܢ ܨܦܪܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܡܝܬܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
31 Therefore, don’t be afraid, you are more preferred than many tsephre {sparrows}.

ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܢܘܕܐ ܒܝ ܩܕܡ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܐܘܕܐ ܒܗ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܒܝ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
32 Every one therefore who will confess Me before the sons of men, I also will confess him before Abi {My Father}, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}.

ܡܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܟܦܘܪ ܒܝ ܩܕܡ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܐܟܦܘܪ ܒܗ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܒܝ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
33 But, whoever that might deny Me before the sons of men, I also will deny him before My Father, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}.

ܠܐ ܬܣܒܪܘܢ ܕܐܬܝܬ ܕܐܪܡܐ ܫܝܢܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܠܐ ܐܬܝܬ ܕܐܪܡܐ ܫܝܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܚܪܒܐ
34 Don’t think that I have come so that I might place shayna {tranquility} in the Ara {the Earth}. I haven’t come to place shayna, but rather, kharba {a sword}.

ܐܬܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܦܠܘܓ ܓܒܪܐ ܥܠ ܐܒܘܗܝ ܘܒܪܬܐ ܥܠ ܐܡܗ ܘܟܠܬܐ ܥܠ ܚܡܬܗ
35 For, I have come that I might divide a gabra {a man} against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law,

ܘܒܥܠܕܒܒܘܗܝ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ
36 And the enemies of a gabra {a man} will be his house sons.

ܡܢ ܕܪܚܡ ܐܒܐ ܐܘ ܐܡܐ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܕܠܝ ܠܐ ܫܘܐ ܠܝ ܘܡܢ ܕܪܚܡ ܒܪܐ ܐܘ ܒܪܬܐ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܕܠܝ ܠܐ ܫܘܐ ܠܝ
37 The one who loves aba {father} or ema {mother} more than Me, isn’t joined to Me, and the one who loves bra {son} or bartha {daughter} more than Me, isn’t joined to Me,

ܘܟܠ ܕܠܐ ܫܩܠ ܙܩܝܦܗ ܘܐܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ ܠܐ ܫܘܐ ܠܝ
38 and everyone who doesn’t take up zaqiypheh {his cross} and follows Me, isn’t joined to Me.

ܡܢ ܕܐܫܟܚ ܢܦܫܗ ܢܘܒܕܝܗ ܘܡܢ ܕܢܘܒܕ ܢܦܫܗ ܡܛܠܬܝ ܢܫܟܚܝܗ
39 The one who has found naphsheh {his soul}, will lose her, and the one who loses naphsheh {his soul}, on account of Me, will find her.

ܡܢ ܕܡܩܒܠ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܝ ܡܩܒܠ ܘܡܢ ܕܠܝ ܡܩܒܠ ܠܡܢ ܕܫܠܚܢܝ ܡܩܒܠ
40 The one who receives you, receives Me, and the one who receives Me, receives The One who has sent Me.

ܡܢ ܕܡܩܒܠ ܢܒܝܐ ܒܫܡ ܢܒܝܐ ܐܓܪܐ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܢܣܒ ܘܡܢ ܕܡܩܒܠ ܙܕܝܩܐ ܒܫܡ ܙܕܝܩܐ ܐܓܪܐ ܕܙܕܝܩܐ ܢܣܒ
41 The one who receives a Nabiya {a Prophet} in a Prophet’s name, receives the reward of a Nabiya {a Prophet}. And the one who receives a Zadiyqa {a Righteous man} in the name of a Zadiyqa {a Righteous man}, receives the reward of a Zadiyqa {a Righteous man}.

ܘܟܠ ܕܡܫܩܐ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܟܣܐ ܕܩܪܝܪܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܒܫܡܐ ܕܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܘܒܕ ܐܓܪܗ
42 And anyone who gives only a kasa d’qariyre {a cup that is cold, i.e. a refreshing drink} unto one of these little ones in the name of a Talmiyda {a Disciple}, truly I say unto you, that he will not lose his reward.

Chapter 11
ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܫܠܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܡܦܩܕܘ ܠܬܪܥܣܪ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܫܢܝ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܠܡܠܦܘ ܘܠܡܟܪܙܘ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܗܘܢ
1 And it happened that when Eshu {Y’shu} had finished commanding His Twelve Disciples, He departed from there to Teach and to Proclaim in their cities.

ܝܘܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܫܕܪ ܒܝܕ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
2 Now, when Yukhanan {John} heard in the house of the prisoners, the works of Meshikha {The Anointed One}, he sent {i.e. sent a message} by means of his Disciples,

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܐ ܐܘ ܠܐܚܪܝܢ ܗܘ ܡܣܟܝܢ ܚܢܢ
3 and said unto Him, “Are you He, that One who comes, or for another are we to be looking?”

ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܠܘ ܐܫܬܥܘ ܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܡܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܚܙܝܢ
4 Eshu {Y’shu} answered and said unto them, “Go relate unto Yukhanan {John} that which you are hearing and seeing.

ܣܡܝܐ ܚܙܝܢ ܘܚܓܝܪܐ ܡܗܠܟܝܢ ܘܓܪܒܐ ܡܬܕܟܝܢ ܘܚܪܫܐ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܘܡܝܬܐ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܘܡܣܟܢܐ ܡܣܬܒܪܝܢ
5 The samya {The blind ones} are seeing, and the khagiyre {the lame ones} are walking, and the garbe {the lepers} are cleansed, and the kharshe {the deaf ones} are hearing, and the miythe {the dead ones} are rising, and the meskine {the poor ones}; they are given The Hopeful Message!

ܘܛܘܒܘܗܝ ܠܐܝܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܬܟܫܠ ܒܝ
6 And happy is the one who will not be offended in Me.”

ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܐܙܠܘ ܫܪܝ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܥܠ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܡܢܐ ܢܦܩܬܘܢ ܠܚܘܪܒܐ ܠܡܚܙܐ ܩܢܝܐ ܕܡܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܡܬܬܙܝܥ
7 Now, when they had departed, Eshu {Y’shu} began to speak to the crowds concerning Yukhanan {John}, “What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A qanya {a cane/a reed} that from the rukha {the wind/the spirit} is shaken?

ܘܐܢ ܠܐ ܡܢܐ ܢܦܩܬܘܢ ܠܡܚܙܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܢܚܬܐ ܪܟܝܟܐ ܠܒܝܫ ܗܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܪܟܝܟܐ ܠܒܝܫܝܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܢܘܢ
8 And if not, what did you go out to see? A man who was wearing soft garments? Behold, those who wear soft things are in a King’s house.

ܘܐܢ ܠܐ ܡܢܐ ܢܦܩܬܘܢ ܠܡܚܙܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܐܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܢܒܝܐ
9 And if not, what did you go out to see? A Nabiya {a Prophet}? Yes. I say unto you, and more than a Nabiya {a Prophet},

ܗܢܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܥܠܘܗܝ ܟܬܝܒ ܕܗܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܫܕܪ ܐܢܐ ܡܠܐܟܝ ܩܕܡ ܦܪܨܘܦܟ ܕܢܬܩܢ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܩܕܡܝܟ
10 for, this is he about whom it is written that, ‘Behold I am sending Malaki {My Messenger} before your face {or, appearance} so that He will prepare the way before you.’

ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܩܡ ܒܝܠܝܕܝ ܢܫܐ ܕܪܒ ܡܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܡܥܡܕܢܐ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܡܠܟܘܬ ܫܡܝܐ ܪܒ ܗܘ ܡܢܗ
11 Amiyn, {Truly} I say unto you, that no neshe {women} has raised sons of greater importance than Yukhanan the Immerser {John, the Baptist}, yet, the least in Malkuth Shmaya {Heaven’s Kingdom}, is greater than him.

ܡܢ ܝܘܡܝ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܥܡܕܢܐ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܫܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܒܩܛܝܪܐ ܡܬܕܒܪܐ ܘܩܛܝܪܢܐ ܡܚܛܦܝܢ ܠܗ
12 But, from the days of Yukhanan Mamdana {John, the Immerser/the Baptist}, and up to right now, The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens} is taken by force, and the violent are seizing her.

ܟܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܢܒܝܐ ܘܐܘܪܝܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܬܢܒܝܘ
13 For, all The Nabiye {The Prophets}, and The Uraytha {The Law}, have Prophesied until Yukhanan {John}.

ܘܐܢ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܩܒܠܘ ܕܗܘܝܘ ܐܠܝܐ ܕܥܬܝܕ ܠܡܐܬܐ
14 And if you will receive it, this is EliYa {Elijah} who is destined to come.

ܡܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܐܕܢܐ ܕܢܫܡܥ ܢܫܡܥ
15 He whom there are for him ears that may hear, he will hear.

ܠܡܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܕܡܝܗ ܠܫܪܒܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܡܝܐ ܠܛܠܝܐ ܕܝܬܒܝܢ ܒܫܘܩܐ ܘܩܥܝܢ ܠܚܒܪܝܗܘܢ
16 But, to whom should I liken unto this generation? It is like unto talye {young boys} who sit in the marketplace {i.e. the city square, or, a modern day mall} and shout out unto their companions {friends},

ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܙܡܪܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܪܩܕܬܘܢ ܘܐܠܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܐܪܩܕܬܘܢ
17 and they are saying, “We sang for you, and you didn’t dance! And we wailed for you, and you didn’t mourn!”

ܐܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܕܠܐ ܐܟܠ ܘܠܐ ܫܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܝܘܐ ܐܝܬ ܒܗ
18 For, Yukhanan {John} came not eating and not drinking {i.e. fasting}, and they said that there is a demon in him.

ܐܬܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܐܟܠ ܘܫܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܟܘܠܐ ܘܫܬܐ ܚܡܪܐ ܘܪܚܡܐ ܕܡܟܣܐ ܘܕܚܛܝܐ ܘܐܙܕܕܩܬ ܚܟܡܬܐ ܡܢ ܥܒܕܝܗ
19 The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and they said, ‘Behold, a gabra akula {a gluttonous man}!’ And, ‘A shathe khamra {A wine drinker}!’ And, ‘A friend of the Makse {Tax-Collectors} and of the Khataye {the Sinners}!’ But, Khekmatha {Wisdom} is justified by its deeds.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܪܝ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܡܚܣܕܘ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܘܘ ܒܗܝܢ ܚܝܠܘܗܝ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܠܐ ܬܒܘ
20 Then Eshu {Y’shu} began to reproach those cities which had many of His mighty works {i.e. miracles} in them, and they hadn’t repented.

ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܘܝ ܠܟܝ ܟܘܪܙܝܢ ܘܝ ܠܟܝ ܒܝܬ ܨܝܕܐ ܕܐܠܘ ܒܨܘܪ ܘܒܨܝܕܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܝܠܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܘܘ ܒܟܝܢ ܟܒܪ ܕܝܢ ܒܣܩܐ ܘܒܩܛܡܐ ܬܒܘ
21 And He was saying, “Woe unto you Karazaiyn {Chorazin}! Woe unto you Beth Tsayada {Bethsaida}! Because, if the khayle {the mighty works, i.e. miracles}, those which had been in you, had been in Tsur {Tyre} and in Tsaydan {Sidon}, then long ago they would have repented in saqe {sackcloth} and in qetma {ashes}.

ܒܪܡ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܝܢ ܕܠܨܘܪ ܘܠܨܝܕܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܢܝܚ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܕܝܢܐ ܐܘ ܠܟܝܢ
22 But, I say unto you, that for Tsur {Tyre} and for Tsaydan {Sidon} it will be more tranquil in The Day of Judgment, than for you!

ܘܐܢܬܝ ܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ ܗܝ ܕܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܡܝܐ ܐܬܬܪܝܡܬܝ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܝܘܠ ܬܬܚܬܝܢ ܕܐܠܘ ܒܣܕܘܡ ܗܘܘ ܚܝܠܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܘܘ ܒܟܝ ܩܝܡܐ ܗܘܬ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܢܐ
23 And you, Kaparnakhum {Capernaum}, the one who has been raised up as far as the Shmaya {the Heavens} will be brought down as far as Sheul. Because, if the khayle {the mighty works i.e. miracles} had been in Sadum {Sodom} that has been in you, she would have been standing until this day.

ܒܪܡ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܝ ܕܠܐܪܥܐ ܕܣܕܘܡ ܢܗܘܐ ܢܝܚ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܕܝܢܐ ܐܘ ܠܟܝ
24 But, I say unto you, that for the land of Sadum {Sodom} it will be more tranquil in The Day of Judgment, than for you!”

ܒܗܘ ܙܒܢܐ ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܘܕܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܐܒܝ ܡܪܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܘܕܐܪܥܐ ܕܟܣܝܬ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܢ ܚܟܝܡܐ ܘܣܟܘܠܬܢܐ ܘܓܠܝܬ ܐܢܝܢ ܠܝܠܘܕܐ
25 At that moment Eshu {Y’shu} answered and said, ‘I give thanks unto you Abi Mara d’Shmaya {My Father, Lord of the Heavens} and d’Ara {of the Earth}, that You have hidden these things from the khakiyme {the wise} and the sakulthane {the intelligent}, and You have revealed them unto yalude {little children}.

ܐܝܢ ܐܒܝ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܨܒܝܢܐ ܩܕܡܝܟ
26 Yes, Abi {My Father}, for thus was the desire before you.

ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܐܫܬܠܡ ܠܝ ܡܢ ܐܒܝ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܝܕܥ ܠܒܪܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܐܒܐ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܠܐܒܐ ܐܢܫ ܝܕܥ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܒܪܐ ܘܠܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܒܪܐ ܕܢܓܠܐ
27 Every thing has been delivered unto Me from Abi {My Father}, and no one knows The Son, except The Father. Also, no one knows The Father, except The Son, and unto whomsoever that The Son desires that He would reveal Him.

ܬܘ ܠܘܬܝ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܠܐܝܐ ܘܫܩܝܠܝ ܡܘܒܠܐ ܘܐܢܐ ܐܢܝܚܟܘܢ
28 Come unto Me, all the weary and carrying burdens, and I will ease you.

ܫܩܘܠܘ ܢܝܪܝ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܘܝܠܦܘ ܡܢܝ ܕܢܝܚ ܐܢܐ ܘܡܟܝܟ ܐܢܐ ܒܠܒܝ ܘܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܢܝܚܐ ܠܢܦܫܬܟܘܢ
29 Carry niyri {My yoke} upon you, and learn from Me, that I am quiet, and I am mild, and in lebi {My heart} you will find a resting place for naphshathkun {your souls}.

ܢܝܪܝ ܓܝܪ ܒܣܝܡ ܗܘ ܘܡܘܒܠܝ ܩܠܝܠܐ ܗܝ
30 For, niyri {My yoke} is pleasant, and mubali {My burden} is qaliyla {easy}.”

Chapter 12
ܒܗܘ ܙܒܢܐ ܡܗܠܟ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܫܒܬܐ ܒܝܬ ܙܪܥܐ ܘܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܟܦܢܘ ܘܫܪܝܘ ܡܠܓܝܢ ܫܒܠܐ ܘܐܟܠܝܢ
1 At that time Eshu {Y’shu} was walking during The Shabtha {The Sabbath}, among the zare {the grain fields}, and His Disciples were hungry, and they began to pick off the shleble {the ears of the grain}, and they were eating.

ܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܗܐ ܬܠܡܝܕܝܟ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܠܐ ܫܠܝܛ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܒܫܒܬܐ
2 But, when The Phrishe {The Pharisees} saw them, they said unto Him, “Look! Your disciples, they are doing something that isn’t lawful to do during The Shabtha {The Sabbath}!!!”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܩܪܝܬܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܕ ܕܘܝܕ ܟܕ ܟܦܢ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܡܗ
3 Then He said unto them, “Haven’t you read what David did when he was hungry, and those who were with him?

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܥܠ ܠܒܝܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܚܡܐ ܕܦܬܘܪܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܐܟܠ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܫܠܝܛ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܠܡܐܟܠ ܘܠܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܡܗ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܠܟܗܢܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ
4 How he entered into The Baytha d’Alaha {The House of God} and he ate The Bread of The Table of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, that which wasn’t lawful for him to eat, and neither for those who were with him, but only for the Kahne {the Priests}?

ܐܘ ܠܐ ܩܪܝܬܘܢ ܒܐܘܪܝܬܐ ܕܟܗܢܐ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܡܚܠܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܫܒܬܐ ܘܕܠܐ ܥܕܠܝ ܐܢܘܢ
5 Or haven’t you read in The Uraytha {The Law/The Torah} that the Kahne {the Priests} in The Haykla {The Temple} profane The Shabtha {The Sabbath}, and they are without blame?

ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܪܒ ܡܢ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܪܟܐ
6 But, I say unto you that one of greater importance than The Haykla {The Temple} is here!

ܐܠܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܡܢܘ ܚܢܢܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܕܒܚܬܐ ܠܐ ܡܚܝܒܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܠܐ ܥܕܠܝ ܐܢܘܢ
7 But, if only you would have known what this means: ‘I desire khanana {mercy}, and not debkhatha {sacrifice},’ you wouldn’t have condemned those who are without blame.

ܡܪܗ ܓܝܪ ܕܫܒܬܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
8 For, The Lord of The Shabtha is The Son of Man.”

ܘܫܢܝ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܟܢܘܫܬܗܘܢ
9 And Eshu {Y’shu} departed from there and came to their Synagogue {Assembly}.

ܘܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ ܕܝܒܝܫܐ ܐܝܕܗ ܘܡܫܐܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܐܢ ܫܠܝܛ ܒܫܒܬܐ ܠܡܐܣܝܘ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܐܟܠܘܢ ܩܪܨܘܗܝ
10 And there was a certain man there whose hand was withered. And they were questioning Him, and they were saying, whether it is lawful to heal during The Shabtha {The Sabbath}, so that they might accuse Him.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܘ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܥܪܒܐ ܚܕ ܘܐܢ ܢܦܠ ܒܚܒܪܐ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܫܒܬܐ ܠܐ ܐܚܕ ܘܡܩܝܡ ܠܗ
11 Then He said unto them, “Who is the gabra from you, that if he has a certain erba {sheep} that falls in a pit during the day of The Shabtha {The Sabbath}, wouldn’t grab and lift him up?

ܟܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܬܝܪ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܥܪܒܐ ܡܕܝܢ ܫܠܝܛ ܗܘ ܒܫܒܬܐ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܕܫܦܝܪ
12 Now, how much greater is a son of man, than an erba {a sheep}? Therefore, it is lawful to do that which is good during The Shabtha {The Sabbath}.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܦܫܘܛ ܐܝܕܟ ܘܦܫܛ ܐܝܕܗ ܘܬܩܢܬ ܐܝܟ ܚܒܪܬܗ
13 Then He said unto that gabra {man}, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched out his hand, and it was restored like the other one {lit. like her companion}!

ܘܢܦܩܘ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܡܠܟܐ ܢܣܒܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܘܒܕܘܢܝܗܝ
14 And the Phrishe {the Pharisees} went out and took counsel concerning Him, how they might destroy Him.

ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܘܫܢܝ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܐܣܝ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ
15 But, Eshu {Y’shu} knew of it, and He departed from there, and large crowds followed {lit. went after Him}, and He healed them all.

ܘܟܐܐ ܒܗܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܓܠܘܢܝܗܝ
16 And He charged them that they shouldn’t reveal Him.

ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܒܝܕ ܐܫܥܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ
17 So that the thing which was spoken of by EshaYa Nabiya {Isaiah, the Prophet} might be fulfilled, who said,

ܗܐ ܥܒܕܝ ܕܐܨܛܒܝܬ ܒܗ ܚܒܝܒܝ ܕܣܘܚܬ ܒܗ ܢܦܫܝ ܪܘܚܝ ܐܣܝܡ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܘܕܝܢܐ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܢܟܪܙ
18 “Behold My Servant, in whom I have been pleased, My Beloved, in whom Naphshi {My Soul} has taken delight in. I will place Rukhi {My Spirit} upon Him, and He will Proclaim judgment unto the Gentiles.

ܠܐ ܢܬܚܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܢܩܥܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܢܫܡܥ ܩܠܗ ܒܫܘܩܐ
19 He will not argue, and He will not yell, and no one will hear His voice in the street.

ܩܢܝܐ ܪܥܝܥܐ ܠܐ ܢܬܒܪ ܘܫܪܓܐ ܕܡܛܦܛܦ ܠܐ ܢܕܥܟ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܦܩ ܕܝܢܐ ܠܙܟܘܬܐ
20 He will not break a crushed qanya {cane/reed}, and He will not extinguish a flickering shraga {lamp}, until He brings forth diyna {judgment} unto zakutha {justification/acquittal}.

ܘܒܫܡܗ ܥܡܡܐ ܢܣܒܪܘܢ
21 And in His Name the Amme {the Peoples/the Gentiles} will hope.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܕܝܘܢܐ ܚܕ ܕܚܪܫ ܘܥܘܝܪ ܘܐܣܝܗ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܚܪܫܐ ܘܣܡܝܐ ܢܡܠܠ ܘܢܚܙܐ
22 They then brought unto Him a certain daywane {possessed man}, who was kharesh {mute} and a samya {a blind man}, and He healed him in such a way that the kharsha {the mute one} and the samya {the blind man} could speak and could see.

ܘܡܬܕܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܠܡܐ ܗܢܘ ܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ
23 And the crowds were all amazed, and were saying, “Perhaps this is The Son of David!?”

ܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܢܐ ܠܐ ܡܦܩ ܫܐܕܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܒܥܠܙܒܘܒ ܪܫܐ ܕܕܝܘܐ
24 Now, when The Phrishe {The Pharisees} heard this, they said, “This one doesn’t cast out the shide {the devils} except by belzbub {beelzebub}, the chief of the daywe {the demons}!”

ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܡܚܫܒܬܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܠ ܡܠܟܘ ܕܬܬܦܠܓ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܬܚܪܒ ܘܟܠ ܒܝ ܘܡܕܝܢܐ ܕܢܬܦܠܓ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܠܐ ܢܩܘܡ
25 But Eshu {Y’shu} knew their thoughts, and said unto them, “Any Malku {Kingdom} which is divided against herself, will be ruined, and any house and city which is divided against herself, will not stand.

ܘܐܢ ܣܛܢܐ ܠܣܛܢܐ ܡܦܩ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܐܬܦܠܓ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܩܝܡܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ
26 And if satana casts out satana, he is divided against his soul {himself}. How then does malkutheh {his kingdom} stand?

27 And if I, by belzbub {Beelzebub}, am casting out the daywe {the demons}, by what do your sons cast them out? Because of this, they will be your dayane {judges}.

ܘܐܢ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܦܩ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܘܐ ܩܪܒܬ ܠܗ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
28 And if by The Rukha d’Alaha {The Spirit of God} I am casting out the daywe {the demons}, The Malkutha d’Alaha {The Kingdom of God} has come near to you.

ܐܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܫܟܚ ܕܢܥܘܠ ܠܒܝܬ ܚܣܝܢܐ ܘܡܐܢܘܗܝ ܢܒܘܙ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܢܐܣܪܝܘܗܝ ܠܚܣܝܢܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܒܝܬܗ ܢܒܘܙ
29 Or, how can a nash {a man} enter into the house of a strong man and plunder his possessions, except if he should first bind the strong man, and then plunder his house?

ܡܢ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܝ ܠܘܩܒܠܝ ܗܘ ܘܡܢ ܕܠܐ ܟܢܫ ܥܡܝ ܡܒܕܪܘ ܡܒܕܪ
30 The one who isn’t with Me, he is against Me, and the one who doesn’t gather with Me, he is really scattering.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܠ ܚܛܗܝܢ ܘܓܘܕܦܝܢ ܢܫܬܒܩܘܢ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܓܘܕܦܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܠ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܠܐ ܢܫܬܒܩ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ
31 Because of this, I say unto you, that the sons of men {i.e. mankind} will be forgiven all their sins, and their blasphemies, but, the blasphemy that is against The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness} will not be forgiven the sons of men {i.e. mankind}.

ܘܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܢܐܡܪ ܡܠܬܐ ܥܠ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܢܫܬܒܩ ܠܗ ܟܠ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܠ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܢܐܡܪ ܠܐ ܢܫܬܒܩ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܒܥܠܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܒܥܠܡܐ ܕܥܬܝܕ
32 And all who will speak a word against The Son of Man, will be forgiven, but, all who will speak against The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}, will not be forgiven, not in this world {or, this age}, and not in the world {or, the age} that is destined to be.

ܐܘ ܥܒܕܘ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܘܦܐܪܘܗܝ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܐܘ ܥܒܕܘ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܘܦܐܪܘܗܝ ܒܝܫܐ ܡܢ ܦܐܪܘܗܝ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܡܬܝܕܥ ܐܝܠܢܐ
33 Either make the tree good, and his fruits good, or make the tree bad, and his fruits bad, for a tree is known from his fruits.

ܝܠܕܐ ܕܐܟܕܢܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܛܒܬܐ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ ܕܒܝܫܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܬܘܬܪܝ ܠܒܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܡܠܠ ܦܘܡܐ
34 Offspring of akedne {vipers}! How are you able to speak good things; you who are biysha {evil}? For, the mouth speaks from the abundance of the leba {the heart}.

ܓܒܪܐ ܛܒܐ ܡܢ ܣܝܡܬܐ ܛܒܬܐ ܡܦܩ ܛܒܬܐ ܘܓܒܪܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܡܢ ܣܝܡܬܐ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܡܦܩ ܒܝܫܬܐ
35 A gabra taba {a good man} from siymatha tabatha {good treasures}, brings forth tabatha {good}, and a gabra biysha {an evil man} from siymatha biyshatha {evil treasure}, brings forth biyshatha {evil}.

ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܟܠ ܡܠܐ ܒܛܠܐ ܕܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܢܬܠܘܢ ܦܬܓܡܗ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܕܝܢܐ
36 For I say unto you, that every vain {unproductive} word that the sons of men {i.e. mankind} might speak, they will give an account of it in The Yawma d’Diyna {The Day of Judgment}.

ܡܢ ܡܠܝܟ ܓܝܪ ܬܙܕܕܩ ܘܡܢ ܡܠܝܟ ܬܬܚܝܒ
37 For, from your words you will be zadadaq {declared righteous}, and from your words you will be thethkhayab {condemned}.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܥܢܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܣܦܪܐ ܘܡܢ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܡܢܟ ܐܬܐ
38 Then some from the Saphre {the Scribes} and from the Phrishe {the Pharisees} answered and said unto Him, “Malphana {Teacher}, we desire that we might see an atha {a miraculous sign} from you.”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܘܓܝܪܬܐ ܐܬܐ ܒܥܝܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܐ ܬܬܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܐܠܐ ܐܬܗ ܕܝܘܢܢ ܢܒܝܐ
39 But He answered and said unto them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks an atha {a miraculous sign}, and an atha {a miraculous sign} will not be given unto it, except the atheh {the miraculous sign} of Yawnan Nabiya {Jonah, the Prophet}.

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܗܘܐ ܝܘܢܢ ܒܟܪܣܗ ܕܢܘܢܐ ܬܠܬܐ ܐܝܡܡܝܢ ܘܬܠܬܐ ܠܝܠܘܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܒܠܒܗ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܬܠܬܐ ܐܝܡܡܝܢ ܘܬܠܬܐ ܠܝܠܘܢ
40 For as Yawnan {Jonah} was in the belly of the nuna {the fish}, three daytimes and three nights, thus The Son of Man will be in the lebeh d’Ara {the heart of the Earth} three daytimes and three nights.

ܓܒܪܐ ܢܝܢܘܝܐ ܢܩܘܡܘܢ ܒܕܝܢܐ ܥܡ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܘܢܚܝܒܘܢܗ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܬܒܘ ܒܟܪܘܙܘܬܗ ܕܝܘܢܢ ܘܗܐ ܕܪܒ ܡܢ ܝܘܢܢ ܬܢܢ
41 The Ninevite men will stand up in The Diyna {The Judgment} with this sharbtha {generation}, and they will condemn it, because they thabu {repented} during the Proclaiming of Yawnan {Jonah}, and behold, One who is of greater importance than Yawnan {Jonah} is here!

ܡܠܟܬܐ ܕܬܝܡܢܐ ܬܩܘܡ ܒܕܝܢܐ ܥܡ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܘܬܚܝܒܝܗ ܕܐܬܬ ܡܢ ܥܒܪܝܗ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܕܬܫܡܥ ܚܟܡܬܗ ܕܫܠܝܡܘܢ ܘܗܐ ܕܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܫܠܝܡܘܢ ܗܪܟܐ
42 The Queen of The South will stand up in The Diyna {The Judgment} with this sharbtha {generation}, and she will condemn it, because she came from the ends of the Ara {the Earth} to hear the wisdom of Shliymun {Solomon}, and behold, One who is of greater importance than Shliymun {Solomon} is here!

ܐܡܬܝ ܕܝܢ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܬܦܘܩ ܡܢ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܡܬܟܪܟܐ ܒܐܬܪܘܬܐ ܕܡܝܐ ܠܝܬ ܒܗܘܢ ܘܒܥܝܐ ܢܝܚܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܐ
43 Now, when a rukha tanphtha {an unclean spirit} goes out from someone, she wanders in places that have no water in them, and she seeks rest, and she doesn’t find it.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܐ ܐܗܦܘܟ ܠܒܝܬܝ ܡܢ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܢܦܩܬ ܘܐܬܝܐ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܕܣܪܝܩ ܘܚܡܝܡ ܘܡܨܒܬ
44 Then she says, ‘I will return unto baythi {my house} from where I came out.’ And she comes, finding that it is vacant, and swept, and prepared.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܙܠܐ ܕܒܪܐ ܥܡܗ ܫܒܥ ܪܘܚܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܢ ܕܡܢܗ ܒܝܫܢ ܘܥܐܠܢ ܘܥܡܪܢ ܒܗ ܘܗܘܝܐ ܚܪܬܗ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܗܘ ܒܝܫܐ ܡܢ ܩܕܡܝܬܗ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܠܫܪܒܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܒܝܫܬܐ
45 Then she goes and takes with her seven other rukhe {spirits} who are worse than her, and they enter and dwell in him, and the end of the gabra {the man} becomes worse than his beginning. Thus it will be for this evil generation.”

ܟܕ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܡܡܠܠ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܐܬܘ ܐܡܗ ܘܐܚܘܗܝ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܠܒܪ ܘܒܥܝܢ ܕܢܡܠܠܘܢ ܥܡܗ
46 Now, while He was speaking unto the crowds, His mother and His brothers came and were standing outside, and they were asking that they might speak with Him.

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫ ܗܐ ܐܡܟ ܘܐܚܝܟ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܠܒܪ ܘܒܥܝܢ ܕܢܡܠܠܘܢ ܥܡܟ
47 Then someone said unto Him, “Behold, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, and asking that they might speak with you.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܡܢ ܕܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܗܝ ܐܡܝ ܘܡܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܚܝ
48 But, He answered and said unto the one who had spoken unto Him, “Who is My mother? And who are My brothers?”

ܘܦܫܛ ܐܝܕܗ ܠܘܬ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܐ ܐܡܝ ܘܗܐ ܐܚܝ
49 And He stretched out His hand towards His Disciples, and said, “Behold My mother, and behold My brothers!

ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܒܕ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܒܝ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܗܘܝܘ ܐܚܝ ܘܚܬܝ ܘܐܡܝ
50 For, every one who does the will of Abi {My Father} who is in The Shmaya {The Heavens}, the very same are My brother, and My sister, and My mother.”

Chapter 13
ܒܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܘܡܐ ܢܦܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܒܝܬܐ ܘܝܬܒ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܝܡܐ
1 Now, during that yawma {day}, Eshu {Y’shu} went out from the baytha {the house} and sat on the yad yama {the seaside}.

ܘܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܣܩ ܢܬܒ ܠܗ ܒܐܠܦܐ ܘܟܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܩܐܡ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܣܦܪ ܝܡܐ
2 And great multitudes gathered with Him, in such a way that He went up to sit Himself in an elpha {a ship/a boat}, and the whole multitude was standing on the spar yama {the seashore}.

ܘܣܓܝ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܒܦܠܐܬܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܐ ܢܦܩ ܙܪܘܥܐ ܠܡܙܪܥ
3 And He was speaking much with them in Phelatha {Similes/Parables}, and saying, “Behold, a Zarua {a Sower} went out so that He might sow,

ܘܟܕ ܙܪܥ ܐܝܬ ܕܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܐܬܬ ܦܪܚܬܐ ܘܐܟܠܬܗ
4 and while He was sowing, some fell on the roadside, and a pharakhtha {a bird} came and ate it.

ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܫܘܥܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܡܕܪܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܒܪܫܥܬܗ ܫܘܚ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܥܘܡܩܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ
5 And other fell on shuka {bedrock} where there wasn’t much medra {dirt}. And at once it sprouted on account that there was no depth of ara {soil}.

ܟܕ ܕܢܚ ܕܝܢ ܫܡܫܐ ܚܡ ܘܡܛܠ ܕܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܥܩܪܐ ܝܒܫ
6 But, when the shemsha {the sun} was risen, it became hot, and because it hadn’t rooted, it withered.

ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܦܠ ܒܝܬ ܟܘܒܐ ܘܣܠܩܘ ܟܘܒܐ ܘܚܢܩܘܗܝ
7 And other fell among kube {thorns} and the thorns grew up, and they choked it.

ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܢܦܠ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܛܒܬܐ ܘܝܗܒ ܦܐܪܐ ܐܝܬ ܕܡܐܐ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܫܬܝܢ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܬܠܬܝܢ
8 And other fell in ara tabtha {good soil} and gave fruits: Some a hundred, and some sixty, and some thirty.

ܡܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܐܕܢܐ ܕܢܫܡܥ ܢܫܡܥ
9 He who has ears that might hear, let him hear.”

ܘܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܡܢܐ ܒܦܠܐܬܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܬ ܥܡܗܘܢ
10 And His Disciples approached and said unto Him, “Why do you speak with them in Phelatha {Similes/Parables}?”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܠܟܘܢ ܗܘ ܝܗܝܒ ܠܡܕܥ ܐܪܙܐ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܝܗܝܒ
11 Then He answered and said unto them, “To you it is given to know the raza {the mystery} of The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of The Heavens}, but, it isn’t given unto those.

ܠܡܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܢܬܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܘܢܬܝܬܪ ܠܗ ܘܠܡܢ ܕܠܝܬ ܠܗ ܘܐܦ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܢܫܬܩܠ ܡܢܗ
12 For, to him who has, it will be given unto him, and it shall increase unto him, and unto him who hasn’t, even that which he has, will be taken from him.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܒܦܠܐܬܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܚܙܝܢ ܘܫܡܥܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܡܣܬܟܠܝܢ
13 Because of this, I speak with them in Phelatha {Similes/Parables}, because they are seeing, and they don’t see, and they are hearing, and they don’t hear, and they don’t understand.

ܘܫܠܡܐ ܒܗܘܢ ܢܒܝܘܬܗ ܕܐܫܥܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܫܡܥܐ ܬܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܬܣܬܟܠܘܢ ܘܡܚܙܐ ܬܚܙܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܬܕܥܘܢ
14 And the Prophecy of EshaYa {Isaiah} is fulfilled in them, which said that, ‘Hearing, you will hear, and not understand, and seeing, you will see, and not perceive.

ܐܬܥܒܝ ܠܗ ܓܝܪ ܠܒܗ ܕܥܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܒܐܕܢܝܗܘܢ ܝܩܝܪܐܝܬ ܫܡܥܘ ܘܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܥܡܨܘ ܕܠܐ ܢܚܙܘܢ ܒܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܢܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܐܕܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܢܣܬܟܠܘܢ ܒܠܒܗܘܢ ܘܢܬܦܢܘܢ ܘܐܣܐ ܐܢܘܢ
15 For, the heart of this Ama {People} has been hardened, and with their ears they have been hard of hearing, and they have shut their eyes so that they should not see and might hear with their ears, and might understand in their heart, and might repent, and I would heal them.’

ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܛܘܒܝܗܝܢ ܠܥܝܢܝܟܘܢ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܘܠܐܕܢܝܟܘܢ ܕܫܡܥܢ
16 But, blessed are your eyes that are seeing, and your ears that are hearing.

ܐܡܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܣܓܝܐܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܘܙܕܝܩܐ ܐܬܪܓܪܓܘ ܕܢܚܙܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܚܙܘ ܘܠܡܫܡܥ ܡܕܡ ܕܫܡܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܫܡܥܘ
17 For, amiyn {truly} I say unto you, that many Nabiye {Prophets}, and Zadiyqe {Righteous men}, have desired that they might see the things that you are seeing, and they didn’t see it, and to hear the things you are hearing, and they didn’t hear it.

ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܫܡܥܘ ܡܬܠܐ ܕܙܪܥܐ
18 Now, hear ye the Mathla {the Parable} of the zara {the seed}:

ܟܠ ܕܫܡܥ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܣܬܟܠ ܒܗ ܐܬܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܘܚܛܦ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܙܪܝܥܐ ܒܠܒܗ ܗܢܘ ܗܘ ܕܥܠ ܝܕ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܐܙܕܪܥ
19 All who hears The Miltha d’Malkutha {The Word of The Kingdom} and doesn’t understand it, the evil one comes in him and snatches The Miltha {The Word} which was sown in lebeh {his heart}. This is that which was sown upon the roadside.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܠ ܫܘܥܐ ܐܙܕܪܥ ܗܘ ܗܘ ܕܫܡܥ ܡܠܬܐ ܘܒܪܫܥܬܗ ܒܚܕܘܬܐ ܡܩܒܠ ܠܗ
20 But, that one which was sown on shuka {bedrock} is that one who hears The Miltha {The Word}, and at once receives it in joy,

ܠܝܬ ܠܗ ܕܝܢ ܥܩܪܐ ܒܗ ܐܠܐ ܕܙܒܢܐ ܗܘ ܘܡܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܐܘ ܪܕܘܦܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܡܠܬܐ ܥܓܠ ܡܬܟܫܠ
21 but, he has no root in him, he is but zabna {temporary}, and when there is difficulty, or persecution because of The Word, he is quickly offended.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܒܝܬ ܟܘܒܐ ܐܙܕܪܥ ܗܘ ܗܘ ܕܫܡܥ ܡܠܬܐ ܘܪܢܝܐ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܛܘܥܝܝ ܕܥܘܬܪܐ ܚܢܩܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܡܠܬܐ ܘܕܠܐ ܦܐܪܐ ܗܘܝܐ
22 Now, that one which was sown among kube {thorns}, is that one who hears The Miltha {The Word}, and the concern of this world, and the deception of riches, choke The Miltha {The Word}, and it becomes fruitless.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܛܒܬܐ ܐܙܕܪܥ ܗܘ ܗܘ ܕܫܡܥ ܡܠܬܝ ܘܡܣܬܟܠ ܘܝܗܒ ܦܐܪܐ ܘܥܒܕ ܐܝܬ ܕܡܐܐ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܫܬܝܢ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܬܠܬܝܢ
23 But, that one which was sown on ara tabtha {good soil} is that one who hears My Word, and understands it, and produces, and gives fruits, some a hundred, and some sixty, and some thirty.”

ܐܚܪܢܐ ܡܬܠܐ ܐܡܬܠ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܡܝܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܕܙܪܥ ܙܪܥܐ ܛܒܐ ܒܩܪܝܬܗ
24 Another Mathla {Parable} He allegorized unto them, and said, “The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens} is likened unto a Man who sowed zara taba {good seed} in His field.

ܘܟܕ ܕܡܟܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܬܐ ܒܥܠܕܒܒܗ ܘܙܪܥ ܙܝܙܢܐ ܒܝܢܬ ܚܛܐ ܘܐܙܠ
25 And while the Man took His rest, His enemy came and sowed zizane {tares} among the khete {the wheat}, and left.

ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܝܥܐ ܥܣܒܐ ܘܥܒܕ ܦܐܪܐ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܬܚܙܝܘ ܐܦ ܙܝܙܢܐ
26 Now, when the blades sprang up and produced fruits, then the zizane {the tares} also appeared.

ܘܩܪܒܘ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܕܡܪܐ ܒܝܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܡܪܢ ܠܐ ܗܐ ܙܪܥܐ ܛܒܐ ܙܪܥܬ ܒܩܪܝܬܟ ܡܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܙܝܙܢܐ
27 And the servants of The Mare Baytha {The House Lord} approached, and they said unto Him, ‘Maran {Our Lord}, look! Didn’t you sow zara taba {good seed} in Your field? From where are the zizane {the tares} in it?

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܒܥܠܕܒܒܐ ܥܒܕ ܗܕܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܢܐܙܠ ܢܓܒܐ ܐܢܘܢ
28 Then He said unto them, ‘A gabra eldababa {a foeman} did this.’ His servants said unto Him, ‘Do you want us to go gather them?’

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܠܡܐ ܟܕ ܡܓܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܙܝܙܢܐ ܬܥܩܪܘܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܐܦ ܚܛܐ
29 But, He said unto them, “Perhaps while you are gathering the zizane {the tares}, you also might uproot the khete {the wheat} with them.

ܫܒܘܩܘ ܪܒܝܢ ܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܚܨܕܐ ܘܒܙܒܢܐ ܕܚܨܕܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܚܨܘܕܐ ܓܒܘ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܙܝܙܢܐ ܘܐܣܘܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܐܣܪܝܬܐ ܕܢܐܩܕܘܢ ܚܛܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܢܫܘ ܐܢܝܢ ܠܐܘܨܪܝ
30 Leave them, so that they both grow up together until the Khatsada {the Harvest}, and at the time of the Khatsada {the Harvest} I will say unto the Khatsude {the Harvesters} to first gather the zizane {the tares} and bind them in bundles so that they might be burned, but the khete {the wheat} to gather them unto My store houses.”

ܐܚܪܢܐ ܡܬܠܐ ܐܡܬܠ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܡܝܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܠܦܪܕܬܐ ܕܚܪܕܠܐ ܕܢܣܒ ܓܒܪܐ ܙܪܥܗ ܒܩܪܝܬܗ
31 Another Mathla {Parable} He allegorized unto them, and said, “The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of The Heavens} is likened unto a grain of khardla {mustard seed} that a Man took and sowed in His field,

ܘܗܝ ܙܥܘܪܝܐ ܗܝ ܡܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܙܪܥܘܢܐ ܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܪܒܬ ܪܒܐ ܗܝ ܡܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܝܪܩܘܢܐ ܘܗܘܝܐ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܬܐܬܐ ܦܪܚܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܬܩܢ ܒܣܘܟܝܗ
32 and is smaller than all the zarune {the small seeds}, but when it grows, it is greater than all the yarqune {the small herbs}, and it becomes a tree to such a degree that the pharakhtha d’Shmaya {the fowl of the Heavens} will come and will nest in its branches.”

ܐܚܪܢܐ ܡܬܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܡܝܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܠܚܡܝܪܐ ܗܘ ܕܫܩܠܬ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܛܡܪܬ ܒܬܠܬ ܣܐܝܢ ܕܩܡܚܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܟܠܗ ܚܡܥ
33 He spoke another Mathla {Parable} unto them. “The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of The Heavens} is likened unto khamiyra {leaven} which a woman took and buried in three measures of flour until it was all khama {leavened}.”

ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܡܠܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܦܠܐܬܐ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܘܕܠܐ ܦܠܐܬܐ ܠܐ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ
34 All these things Eshu {Y’shu} spoke in Phelatha {Similes/Parables} unto the crowds, and He wouldn’t speak unto them without Phelatha {Similes/Parables},

ܐܝܟ ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܒܝܕ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܐܦܬܚ ܦܘܡܝ ܒܡܬܠܐ ܘܐܒܥ ܟܣܝܬܐ ܕܡܢ ܩܕܡ ܬܪܡܝܬܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ
35 so that the thing which was spoken through the Nabiya {the Prophet} might be fulfilled, who said, ‘I will open my mouth with Mathle {Parables} and will speak forth the secrets that were from before the foundations of the alma {the world}.’”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܒܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܒܝܬܐ ܘܩܪܒܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܦܫܩ ܠܢ ܡܬܠܐ ܗܘ ܕܙܝܙܢܐ ܘܕܩܪܝܬܐ
36 Then Eshu {Y’shu} left the crowds and came unto the house, and His Disciples drew near towards Him, and said unto Him, “Explain for us the Mathla {the Parable}, that one of the zizane {the tares} and of the qriytha {the field}.”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܘ ܕܙܪܥ ܙܪܥܐ ܛܒܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
37 Then He answered and said unto them, “He who sowed the zara taba {the good seed} is The Son of Man,

ܘܩܪܝܬܐ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܥܠܡܐ ܙܪܥܐ ܕܝܢ ܛܒܐ ܒܢܝܗ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܙܝܙܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܒܢܘܗܝ ܕܒܝܫܐ
38 and the field is the world. Now, the zara {the seed}; they are the good sons of The Malkutha {The Kingdom}, but the zizane {the tares} are the sons of biysha {evil}.

ܒܥܠܕܒܒܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܙܪܥ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܣܛܢܐ ܚܨܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܫܘܠܡܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܚܨܘܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܠܐܟܐ
39 Now, the eldababa {the enemy} who sowed them, is satana. The Khatsada {The Harvest} is the end of the world {or, age}. The Khatsude {The Harvesters} are The Malake {The Heavenly Messengers}.

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܡܬܓܒܝܢ ܙܝܙܢܐ ܘܝܩܕܝܢ ܒܢܘܪܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܫܘܠܡܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܗܢܐ
40 As therefore the zizane {the tares} are gathered and burned in the nura {the fire}, likewise it will be during the consummation of this world {or, age}.

ܢܫܕܪ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܡܠܐܟܘܗܝ ܘܢܓܒܘܢ ܡܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܡܟܫܘܠܐ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܒܕܝ ܥܘܠܐ
41 The Son of Man will send Malakuhi {His Heavenly Messengers}, and they will gather from Malkutheh {His Kingdom} all makshule {stumbling-blocks}, and all those doing unrighteousness.

ܘܢܪܡܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܐܬܘܢܐ ܕܢܘܪܐ ܬܡܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܟܝܐ ܘܚܘܪܩ ܫܢܐ
42 And they will throw them into The Athuna d’Nura {The Furnace of Fire}. There will be weeping and teeth gnashing.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܙܕܝܩܐ ܢܢܗܪܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܫܡܫܐ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܒܘܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܐܕܢܐ ܕܢܫܡܥ ܢܫܡܥ
43 Then, The Zadiyqe {The Righteous} will shine like the shemsha {the sun} in The Malkutheh d’Abuhun {The Kingdom of Their Father}. He who has ears that might be hearing, will hear.

ܬܘܒ ܕܡܝܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܠܣܝܡܬܐ ܕܡܛܫܝܐ ܒܩܪܝܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܐܫܟܚܗ ܓܒܪܐ ܘܛܫܝܗ ܘܡܢ ܚܕܘܬܗ ܐܙܠ ܙܒܢ ܟܠ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܘܙܒܢܗ ܠܩܪܝܬܐ ܗܝ
44 Again, The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of The Heavens} is likened unto a simtha {a treasure} that is hidden in a qriytha {a field}, that one which a man has found, and hidden it, and from his joy he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that qriytha {field}.

ܬܘܒ ܕܡܝܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܬܓܪܐ ܕܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܪܓܢܝܬܐ ܛܒܬܐ
45 Again, The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of The Heavens} is likened to a merchant man who was seeking marganyatha tabatha {precious pearls}.

ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܐܫܟܚ ܡܪܓܢܝܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܝܩܝܪܬ ܕܡܝܐ ܐܙܠ ܙܒܢ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܘܙܒܢܗ
46 But, when he found a certain heavily valued marganyatha {pearl}, he went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

ܬܘܒ ܕܡܝܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܠܡܨܝܕܬܐ ܕܢܦܠܬ ܒܝܡܐ ܘܡܢ ܟܠ ܓܢܣ ܟܢܫܬ
47 Again, The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of The Heavens} is likened to a net that was thrown into the yama {the sea}, and from every kind it gathered.

ܘܟܕ ܡܠܬ ܐܣܩܘܗ ܠܣܦܪܝ ܝܡܐ ܘܝܬܒܘ ܓܒܝܘ ܘܛܒܐ ܐܪܡܝܘ ܒܡܐܢܐ ܘܒܝܫܐ ܫܕܘ ܠܒܪ
48 And when it was filled, they brought it up to the seashore, and sat down and sorted them. And the tabe {the good ones}, they placed into mane {vessels}, and the biyshe {the bad ones}, they threw outside.

ܗܟܢܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܫܘܠܡܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܢܦܩܘܢ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܘܢܦܪܫܘܢ ܒܝܫܐ ܡܢ ܒܝܢܝ ܙܕܝܩܐ
49 Thus it will be in the end of the alma {the world}. The Malake {The Heavenly Messengers} will go out and they will separate the biyshe {the evil ones} from among The Zadiyke {The Righteous/Just Ones}.

ܘܢܪܡܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܐܬܘܢܐ ܕܢܘܪܐ ܬܡܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܟܝܐ ܘܚܘܪܩ ܫܢܐ
50 And they will throw them into The Athuna d’Nura {The Furnace of Fire}. There will be weeping and teeth gnashing.”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܣܬܟܠܬܘܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܝܢ ܡܪܢ
51 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “Have you understood all these things?” They said unto Him, “Yes, Maran {Our Lord}.”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܟܠ ܣܦܪܐ ܕܡܬܬܠܡܕ ܠܡܠܟܘܬ ܫܡܝܐ ܕܡܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܡܪܐ ܒܝܬܐ ܕܡܦܩ ܡܢ ܣܝܡܬܗ ܚܕܬܬܐ ܘܥܬܝܩܬܐ
52 He said unto them, “Because of this, every Saphra {Scribe} who is instructed for Malkuth Shmaya {Heaven’s Kingdom} is likened unto a gabra {a man} who is a mare baytha {a house lord}, who brings out from his treasures the new ones, and the old ones.”

ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܫܠܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܬܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܫܢܝ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ
53 And it happened that when Eshu {Y’shu} had completed these Mathle {Parables}, He departed from there.

ܘܐܬܐ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܗ ܘܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܗܘܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܢܬܗܪܘܢ ܘܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܠܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܚܟܡܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܘܚܝܠܐ
54 And He came unto madintheh {His city}, and was teaching them in Kenushathhun {their Synagogues/Assemblies} in such a way that they would marvel and would say, “From where has this man this wisdom, and these khayle {mighty deeds i.e. miracles}?

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܢܓܪܐ ܠܐ ܐܡܗ ܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܡܪܝܡ ܘܐܚܘܗܝ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܝܘܣܐ ܘܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܝܗܘܕܐ
55 Wasn’t this the son of the Nagara {the Carpenter} {lit. Craftsman}? Isn’t his mother named Maryam {Mary}? And his brothers Yaqub {Jacob/James}, and Yusi {Joses}, and Shimeun {Simeon}, and Yehuda {Judah}?

ܘܐܚܘܬܗ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܠܐ ܗܐ ܠܘܬܢ ܐܢܝܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܠܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ
56 And his sisters, behold, are they not all with us? From where has this man all these things?”

ܘܡܬܟܫܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܝܬ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܨܥܝܪ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܗ ܘܒܒܝܬܗ
57 And they were offended in Him. Then Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “There is no Nabiya {Prophet} who is despised, except only in his own city, and in his own house.”

ܘܠܐ ܥܒܕ ܬܡܢ ܚܝܠܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܛܠ ܠܐ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܗܘܢ
58 And He didn’t perform many khayle {mighty deeds i.e. miracles} there, because of their unbelief.


Chapter 14
ܒܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܙܒܢܐ ܫܡܥ ܗܪܘܕܣ ܛܛܪܪܟܐ ܫܡܥܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ
1 Now, during that time, Herudes the Tetrarka {the Tetrarch} heard the fame of Eshu {Y’shu}.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܗܢܘ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܡܥܡܕܢܐ ܗܘ ܩܡ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܚܝܠܐ ܡܣܬܥܪܝܢ ܒܗ
2 And he said unto his servants, “This is Yukhanan Mamdana {John, the Immerser/the Baptist}. He has risen from the house of the dead. Because of this, khayle {mighty works/miracles} are performed by him!”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܗܪܘܕܣ ܐܚܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܣܪܗ ܘܐܪܡܝܗ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܡܛܠ ܗܪܘܕܝܐ ܐܬܬ ܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܐܚܘܗܝ
3 Now, that one, Herudes, had taken Yukhanan {John} and bound him, and cast him into a house of prisoners because of Herudiya the wife of Philipus {Philip}, his brother.

ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܓܝܪ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܕܠܐ ܫܠܝܛ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܐܢܬܬܐ
4 For, Yukhanan {John} was saying unto him that “It isn’t lawful that she could be a wife for you.”

ܘܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܩܛܠܗ ܘܕܚܠ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܥܡܐ ܕܐܝܟ ܕܠܢܒܝܐ ܐܚܝܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
5 And he was desiring to kill him, but was afraid of the Ama {the People}, who had accepted him as a Prophet.

ܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܝܬ ܝܠܕܗ ܕܗܪܘܕܣ ܪܩܕܬ ܒܪܬܗ ܕܗܪܘܕܝܐ ܩܕܡ ܣܡܝܟܐ ܘܫܦܪܬ ܠܗ ܠܗܪܘܕܣ
6 But, when it was the beth yaldeh {the birth day} of Herudes, the daughter of Herudiya danced before the smiyke {the guests}, and she pleased Herudes.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܒܡܘܡܬܐ ܝܡܐ ܠܗ ܕܢܬܠ ܠܗ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܬܫܐܠ
7 Because of this, with an oath, he swore unto her that he would give unto her every thing that she might ask.

ܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܠܦܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܐܡܗ ܐܡܪܬ ܗܒ ܠܝ ܗܪܟܐ ܒܦܝܢܟܐ ܪܫܗ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܡܥܡܕܢܐ
8 Then she, on account that her mother had instructed her, said, “ Give unto me, here in a phiynka {a dish}, the head of Yukhanan Mamdana {John, the Immerser/the Baptist}.”

ܘܟܪܝܬ ܠܗ ܠܡܠܟܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܝܢ ܡܘܡܬܐ ܘܣܡܝܟܐ ܦܩܕ ܕܢܬܝܗܒ ܠܗ
9 And the Malka {the King} was sorrowful, but, because of the mumatha {the oath}, and the smiyke {the guests}, he commanded that it should be given unto her.

ܘܫܕܪ ܦܣܩܗ ܪܫܗ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ
10 And he sent, cutting off the head of Yukhanan {John} in the prisoner’s house.

ܘܐܝܬܝ ܪܫܗ ܒܦܝܢܟܐ ܘܐܬܝܗܒ ܠܛܠܝܬܐ ܘܐܝܬܝܬܗ ܠܐܡܗ
11 And his head was brought in a phiynka {a dish} and given unto the talitha {the young girl}, and she brought it unto her mother.

ܘܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܫܩܠܘ ܫܠܕܗ ܩܒܪܘ ܘܐܬܘ ܚܘܝܘ ܠܝܫܘܥ
12 And his Disciples approached and removed shladeh {his corpse}, buried it, and came and made it known unto Eshu {Y’shu}.

ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܫܢܝ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܒܐܠܦܐ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܚܘܪܒܐ ܒܠܚܘܕܘܗܝ ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܟܢܫܐ ܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܒܝܒܫܐ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
13 Now, when Eshu {Y’shu} heard it, He departed from there in an elpha {a ship/boat} unto a desert place alone. And when the crowds heard it, they followed Him on land from the madinatha {the cities}.

ܘܢܦܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܚܙܐ ܟܢܫܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܣܝ ܟܪܝܗܝܗܘܢ
14 And having gone out, Eshu {Y’shu} saw the large crowds and had compassion on them, and He healed kriyhayhun {their diseases}.

ܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܪܡܫܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܐܬܪܐ ܚܘܪܒܐ ܗܘ ܘܥܕܢܐ ܥܒܪ ܠܗ ܫܪܝ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܕܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܠܩܘܪܝܐ ܘܢܙܒܢܘܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܣܝܒܪܬܐ
15 Now, when it became ramsha {evening}, His Disciples came to Him and said unto Him, “The region is a khurba {a desert/wasteland} and the time has passed, dismiss the crowds of people so that they may go unto the kurya {the towns} and may buy saybartha {food} for themselves.”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܬܒܥܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܐܙܠ ܗܒܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܐܟܠ
16 Then He said unto them, “It isn’t necessary for them to go. You give them something to eat.”

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܠܝܬ ܠܢ ܬܢܢ ܐܠܐ ܚܡܫ ܓܪܝܨܢ ܘܬܪܝܢ ܢܘܢܝܢ
17 But, they said unto Him, “We have nothing here but five loaves and two fish!”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܝܬܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܝ ܠܗܪܟܐ
18 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “Bring them here unto Me.”

ܘܦܩܕ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܠܡܣܬܡܟܘ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܘܫܩܠ ܗܢܘܢ ܚܡܫܐ ܠܚܡܝܢ ܘܬܪܝܢ ܢܘܢܝܢ ܘܚܪ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܒܪܟ ܘܩܨܐ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܣܡܘ ܠܟܢܫܐ
19 And He commanded the crowds to recline upon the ground, and He took up those five lakhmiyn {lit. breads} and two nuniyn {fish}, and looked into the Shmaya {the Heavens} and blessed them, and broke them, and gave them unto His Disciples. And The Talmiyde {The Disciples} gave them unto the kenshe {the crowds}.

ܘܐܟܠܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܣܒܥܘ ܘܫܩܠܘ ܬܘܬܪܐ ܕܩܨܝܐ ܬܪܥܣܪ ܩܘܦܝܢܝܢ ܟܕ ܡܠܝܢ
20 And they all ate, and were satisfied. And they took up the remainder of the fragments, as much as twelve full quphiniyn {baskets}!

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܕܐܟܠܘ ܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܠܦܐ ܚܡܫܐ ܣܛܪ ܡܢ ܢܫܐ ܘܛܠܝܐ
21 Now, those nasha {men} who had eaten, were five thousand, aside from the neshe {the women}, and the talaye {the youths}!

ܘܡܚܕܐ ܐܠܨ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܢܣܩܘܢ ܠܣܦܝܢܬܐ ܘܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܠܥܒܪܐ ܥܕ ܫܪܐ ܗܘ ܠܟܢܫܐ
22 And immediately He urged His Disciples that they should get into the sphintha {the ship/the boat} and to go before Him unto the farther bank {lit. the crossing}, while He dismissed the kenshe {the crowds}.

ܘܟܕ ܫܪܐ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܣܠܩ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܒܠܚܘܕܘܗܝ ܠܡܨܠܝܘ ܘܟܕ ܚܫܟܬ ܒܠܚܘܕܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܬܡܢ
23 And when He dismissed the kenshe {the crowds}, He went up unto the tura {the mountain} alone, to pray. And when it kheshkath {became dark}, He was there alone.

ܘܐܠܦܐ ܪܚܝܩܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܢ ܐܪܥܐ ܐܣܛܕܘܬܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܟܕ ܡܫܬܓܫܐ ܣܓܝ ܡܢ ܓܠܠܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܩܘܒܠܗ ܗܘܬ
24 And the elpha {the boat/the ship} was far from the land, many estdawatha {stadia}, while disturbed greatly from the galle {the waves}, for the wind was against her.

ܒܡܛܪܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܪܒܝܥܝܬܐ ܕܠܠܝܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܟܕ ܡܗܠܟ ܥܠ ܡܝܐ
25 But, during the fourth watch {3am-6am} of the lilya {the night}, Eshu {Y’shu} came towards them, while walking upon the maya {the waters}!

ܘܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܡܗܠܟ ܥܠ ܡܝܐ ܘܐܬܬܙܝܥܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܚܙܘܐ ܗܘ ܕܓܠܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܚܠܬܗܘܢ ܩܥܘ
26 And His Disciples saw Him; that He was walking upon the maya {the waters}, and they were troubled, and they were saying that it was a false vision {i.e. an apparition}. And from their fear, they cried out.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܪܫܥܬܗ ܡܠܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܬܠܒܒܘ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠܘܢ
27 Then He, Eshu {Y’shu}, immediately spoke with them, and said, “Have courage! ENA NA {I AM}! Don’t be afraid!”

ܘܥܢܐ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܝ ܐܢ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܦܩܘܕ ܠܝ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܟ ܥܠ ܡܝܐ
28 And Kepha {The Rock} answered and said unto Him, “Mari {My Lord}, if it is you, give a command unto me to come to you upon the maya {the waters}!”

ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܬܐ ܘܢܚܬ ܟܐܦܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܦܐ ܘܗܠܟ ܥܠ ܡܝܐ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ
29 Then Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “Come!” And Kepha {The Rock} descended from the elpha {the boat/the ship}, and walked upon the maya {the waters}, so that he might come to Eshu {Y’shu}.

ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܫܝܐ ܕܚܠ ܘܫܪܝ ܠܡܛܒܥ ܘܐܪܝܡ ܩܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܦܪܘܩܝܢܝ
30 And when he saw the wind was strong, he was afraid, and began to sink, and he raised his voice and said, “Mari {My Lord}, save me!”

ܘܒܪܫܥܬܗ ܦܫܛ ܐܝܕܗ ܡܪܢ ܘܐܚܕܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܙܥܘܪ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܠܡܢܐ ܐܬܦܠܓܬ
31 And at that moment Maran {Our Lord} stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said unto him, “Zur Haymanutha {Little of Faith}, why did you doubt?”

ܘܟܕ ܣܠܩܘ ܠܐܠܦܐ ܫܠܝܬ ܪܘܚܐ
32 And when they ascended into the elpha {the boat/the ship}, the wind ceased.

ܘܐܬܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܒܐܠܦܐ ܣܓܕܘ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܒܪܗ ܐܢܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ
33 And they who were in the elpha {the boat/the ship} came, worshiping Him, and said, “Truly you are The Son of Alaha {God}!”

ܘܪܕܘ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܐܪܥܐ ܕܓܢܣܪ
34 And they sailed, and came unto the land of Genesar {Gennesaret}.

ܘܐܫܬܘܕܥܘܗܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܕܐܬܪܐ ܗܘ ܘܫܕܪܘ ܠܟܠܗܝܢ ܩܘܪܝܐ ܕܚܕܪܝܗܘܢ ܘܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܝܫ ܒܝܫ ܥܒܝܕܝܢ
35 And the men of that region recognized Him, and they sent unto all the surrounding qurya {towns}, and all those who were very evilly affected drew near unto Him,

ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܗ ܕܢܩܪܒܘܢ ܐܦܢ ܠܟܢܦܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܕܠܒܘܫܗ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܩܪܒܘ ܐܬܐܣܝܘ
36 and they were seeking from Him if only they might touch the kenpha {the hem/border} of His clothing. And those who touched, were healed.

Chapter 15
ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܣܦܪܐ ܕܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ
1 Then the Phrishe {the Pharisees} and the Saphre {the Scribes} who were from Urishlem {Jerusalem} drew near towards Eshu {Y’shu}, and they were saying,

ܠܡܢܐ ܬܠܡܝܕܝܟ ܥܒܪܝܢ ܥܠ ܡܫܠܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܫܝܓܝܢ ܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܡܐ ܕܐܟܠܝܢ ܠܚܡܐ
2 “Why do your disciples transgress against the mashlamanutha d’Qashishe {the tradition of The Elders} and are not washing their hands when they are eating lakhma {bread}?”

ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܢܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܒܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܠ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܛܠ ܡܫܠܡܢܘܬܟܘܢ
3 Eshu {Y’shu} answered and said unto them, “Why also do you transgress against The Phuqdana d’Alaha {The Commandment of God} because of mashlamanuthkun {your tradition}?

ܐܠܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܝܩܪ ܠܐܒܘܟ ܘܠܐܡܟ ܘܡܢ ܕܡܨܚܐ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܘܠܐܡܗ ܡܡܬ ܢܡܘܬ
4 For, Alaha {God} said ‘Honor your father and mother, and the one who reviles his father and his mother, dying, he will die.’

ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܢܐܡܪ ܠܐܒܐ ܐܘ ܠܐܡܐ ܩܘܪܒܢܝ ܡܕܡ ܕܬܬܗܢܐ ܡܢܝ ܘܠܐ ܢܝܩܪ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܐܘ ܠܐܡܗ
5 But, you say all who might say unto a father, or unto a mother, ‘Qurbani {My Offering} is the thing which you would have benefited from me,’ and he may not honor his father or mother.

ܘܒܛܠܬܘܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܛܠ ܡܫܠܡܢܘܬܟܘܢ
6 And you invalidate The Miltha d’Alaha {The Word of God} because of mashlamanuthkun {your tradition}.

ܢܣܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܫܦܝܪ ܐܬܢܒܝ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܐܫܥܝܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܘܐܡܪ
7 Nasbe Baphe {Hypocrites}! EshaYa Nabiya {Isaiah, the Prophet} Prophesied well {lit. beautifully} concerning you, and said,

ܥܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܣܦܘܬܗ ܗܘ ܡܝܩܪ ܠܝ ܠܒܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܣܓܝ ܪܚܝܩ ܡܢܝ
8 ‘This Ama {People} honor Me with their lips, but their heart is very far from Me.

ܘܣܪܝܩܐܝܬ ܕܚܠܝܢ ܠܝ ܟܕ ܡܠܦܝܢ ܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܕܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܕܒܢܝܢܫܐ
9 And they vainly revere {i.e. worship} Me, while they teach the doctrines of the commandments of the sons of men.’

ܘܩܪܐ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܡܥܘ ܘܐܣܬܟܠܘ
10 And He cried out unto the crowds and said unto them, “Hear and understand!

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܥܐܠ ܠܦܘܡܐ ܡܣܝܒ ܠܒܪܢܫܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܢܦܩ ܡܢ ܦܘܡܐ ܗܘ ܗܘ ܡܣܝܒ ܠܒܪܢܫܐ
11 It isn’t the thing which enters the mouth that defiles someone, but the thing which goes out from the mouth that someone is defiled.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܬ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܐܬܟܫܠܘ
12 Then His Disciples approached and said unto Him, “Do you realize that the Phrishe {the Pharisees}, who heard this Miltha {Word}, were offended?”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܠ ܢܨܒܬܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܨܒܗ ܐܒܝ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܬܬܥܩܪ
13 Then He answered and said unto them, “Every plant which My Father, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, didn’t plant, will be uprooted.

ܫܒܘܩܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܣܡܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܢܓܘܕܐ ܕܣܡܝܐ ܣܡܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܣܡܝܐ ܐܢ ܢܕܒܪ ܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܒܓܘܡܨܐ ܢܦܠܝܢ
14 Leave them, they are blind leaders of the blind. Now, if the blind should lead the blind, they both will fall into the pit!”

ܘܥܢܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܝ ܦܫܩ ܠܢ ܡܬܠܐ ܗܢܐ
15 And Shimeun Kepha {Simeon, The Rock} answered and said unto Him, “Mari {My Lord}, explain this Mathla {Parable} for us.”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܫܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܣܬܟܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
16 Then He said unto them, “You also don’t understand, even now?

ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܥܐܠ ܠܦܘܡܐ ܠܟܪܣܐ ܗܘ ܐܙܠ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܒܬܕܟܝܬܐ ܡܫܬܕܐ ܠܒܪ
17 Don’t you know that the thing which enters the phuma {the mouth} is going to the stomach, and from there, in excretion, is cast outside?

ܡܕܡ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܦܘܡܐ ܢܦܩ ܡܢ ܠܒܐ ܢܦܩ ܘܗܘܝܘ ܡܣܝܒ ܠܗ ܠܒܪܢܫܐ
18 But the thing that goes out from the phuma {the mouth} goes out from the leba {the heart}, and that is what defiles the man.

ܡܢ ܠܒܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܢܦܩܢ ܡܚܫܒܬܐ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܓܘܪܐ ܩܛܠܐ ܙܢܝܘܬܐ ܓܢܒܘܬܐ ܣܗܕܘܬ ܫܘܩܪܐ ܓܘܕܦܐ
19 For, from the leba {the heart} are going out makhshabatha biyshatha {evil thoughts}: gura {adultery}, qetla {murder}, zanyutha {fornication}, ganabutha {theft}, sahduth shuqra {false witness}, gudapha {blasphemy}.

ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܝܢ ܕܡܣܝܒܢ ܠܒܪܢܫܐ ܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܕܝܢ ܢܠܥܣ ܟܕ ܠܐ ܡܫܓܢ ܐܝܕܘܗܝ ܠܐ ܡܣܬܝܒ
20 These things are what defiles a man. But, if while a man might eat without washing his hands, he isn’t defiled.”

ܘܢܦܩ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܬܚܘܡܐ ܕܨܘܪ ܘܕܨܝܕܢ
21 And Eshu {Y’shu} went out from there and came unto the border of Tsur {Tire} and of Tsydan {Sidon}.

ܘܗܐ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܟܢܥܢܝܬܐ ܡܢ ܬܚܘܡܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܢܦܩܬ ܟܕ ܩܥܝܐ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝ ܡܪܝ ܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܒܪܬܝ ܒܝܫܐܝܬ ܡܬܕܒܪܐ ܡܢ ܫܐܕܐ
22 And look! A Kananayatha {a Canaanite woman} came out from those borders, while crying aloud, and was saying, “Have mercy on me, Mari {My Lord}, The Son of David, my daughter is evilly oppressed by a shida {a devil}!”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܦܢܝܗ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܘܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܒܥܘ ܡܢܗ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܫܪܝܗ ܕܩܥܝܐ ܒܬܪܢ
23 But He didn’t answer her a word. And His Disciples approached requesting from Him, and saying, “Send her away because she is crying out behind us.”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܐܫܬܕܪܬ ܐܠܐ ܠܘܬ ܥܪܒܐ ܕܛܥܘ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܝܣܪܝܠ
24 But, He answered and said unto them, “I have not been sent except to the Erbe {the Sheep} who have gone astray from the house of IysraIyl {of Israel}.”

ܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܬ ܣܓܕܬ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪܬ ܡܪܝ ܥܕܪܝܢܝ
25 Then she came, worshiping Him, and said, “Mari {My Lord}, help me!”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐ ܫܦܝܪ ܠܡܣܒ ܠܚܡܐ ܕܒܢܝܐ ܘܠܡܪܡܝܘ ܠܟܠܒܐ
26 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto her, “It isn’t good to take the lakhma d’banaya {the bread of the children, lit. the bread of the sons} and throw it unto the kalbe {the dogs}.”

ܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܬ ܐܝܢ ܡܪܝ ܐܦ ܟܠܒܐ ܐܟܠܝܢ ܡܢ ܦܪܬܘܬܐ ܕܢܦܠܝܢ ܡܢ ܦܬܘܪܐ ܕܡܪܝܗܘܢ ܘܚܐܝܢ
27 But, she said, “Yes, Mari {My Lord}, even the kalbe {the dogs} eat from the crumbs which fall from the tables of their masters, and live.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܘ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܪܒܐ ܗܝ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܟܝ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܟܝ ܐܝܟ ܕܨܒܝܐ ܐܢܬܝ ܘܐܬܐܣܝܬ ܒܪܬܗ ܡܢ ܗܝ ܫܥܬܐ
28 Then Eshu {Y’shu} said unto her, “Oh woman! Great is your faith. It will be unto you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that moment.

ܘܫܢܝ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܬܐ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܝܡܐ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܣܠܩ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܘܝܬܒ ܬܡܢ
29 And Eshu {Y’shu} departed from there and arrived on the seaside of Galila {Galilee}. And He went up unto a tura {a mountain}, and sat there.

ܘܩܪܒܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܚܓܝܪܐ ܘܣܡܝܐ ܘܚܪܫܐ ܘܦܫܝܓܐ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܐܪܡܝܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܣܝ ܐܢܘܢ
30 And great crowds drew near towards Him who had with them khagiyre {the lame}, and the samya {the blind}, and the kharshe {deaf/mutes}, and the phashiyge {the maimed}, and many others. And they placed them at the feet of Eshu {Y’shu}, and He healed them,

ܐܝܟ ܕܢܬܕܡܪܘܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܚܪܫܐ ܕܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܘܦܫܝܓܐ ܕܡܬܚܠܡܝܢ ܘܚܓܝܪܐ ܕܡܗܠܟܝܢ ܘܣܡܝܐ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܘܫܒܚܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܣܪܝܠ
31 insomuch that the crowds were amazed, those who saw the dumb who were speaking, and the crippled who were healed, and the lame who were walking, and the blind who were seeing. And they gave praise unto Alaha d’IysraIyl {The God of Israel}.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܪܐ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܬܪܚܡ ܐܢܐ ܥܠ ܟܢܫܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܗܐ ܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܩܘܝܘ ܠܘܬܝ ܘܠܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܐ ܕܢܐܟܠܘܢ ܘܕܐܫܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܨܝܡܝܢ ܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܥܘܦܘܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ
32 Then He, Eshu {Y’shu}, called for His Disciples and said unto them, “I have compassion upon this kensha {crowd}. Behold, because they have remained with Me three days, and they don’t have that which they might eat. And I don’t want to send them away while they are fasting, lest they might faint in the road.”

ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܠܢ ܒܚܘܪܒܐ ܠܚܡܐ ܕܢܣܒܥ ܟܢܫܐ ܗܢܐ ܟܠܗ
33 His Disciples said unto Him, “Where in this desert is there bread for us that we might satisfy all this kensha {crowd}?”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܟܡܐ ܠܚܡܝܢ ܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܫܒܥܐ ܘܩܠܝܠ ܢܘܢܐ ܕܩܕܩܐ
34 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “How many lakhmiyn {lit. breads i.e. bread loaves} do you have?” They said unto Him, “Seven, and a few small nune {fish}.”

ܘܦܩܕ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܕܢܣܬܡܟܘܢ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ
35 And He commanded the kenshe {the crowds} that they should recline upon the ground.

ܘܫܩܠ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܫܒܥܐ ܠܚܡܝܢ ܘܠܢܘܢܐ ܘܫܒܚ ܘܩܨܐ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܝܗܒܘ ܠܟܢܫܐ
36 And He took those seven lakhmiyn {i.e. loaves of bread}, and the nune {fish}, and gave thanks and broke and gave unto His Disciples, and The Talmiyde {The Disciples} gave them unto the kenshe {the crowds}.

ܘܐܟܠܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܣܒܥܘ ܘܫܩܠܘ ܬܘܬܪܐ ܕܩܨܝܐ ܡܠܐ ܫܒܥܐ ܐܣܦܪܝܕܝܢ
37 And all ate, and were satisfied, and they took up the remains of the fragments, seven full baskets.

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܟܠܘ ܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܪܒܥܐ ܐܠܦܝܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܣܛܪ ܡܢ ܢܫܐ ܘܛܠܝܐ
38 Now those who had eaten, were four thousand gabre {men}, aside from the neshe {the women} and the talaye {the youths}.

ܘܟܕ ܫܪܐ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܣܠܩ ܠܐܠܦܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܬܚܘܡܐ ܕܡܓܕܘ
39 And when He dismissed the kenshe {the crowds}, he ascended into an elpha {a boat/a ship} and came unto the border of Magdu {Magdala}.

Chapter 16
ܘܩܪܒܘ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܙܕܘܩܝܐ ܡܢܣܝܢ ܠܗ ܘܫܐܠܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܬܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܕܢܚܘܐ ܐܢܘܢ
1 And coming near, the Phrishe {the Pharisees} and the Zaduqaye {the Sadducees} were tempting Him and requesting Him to show them an atha {a miraculous sign} from the Shmaya {the Heavens}.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܪܡܫܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܨܚܘܐ ܗܘ ܣܡܩܬ ܓܝܪ ܫܡܝܐ
2 But He answered and said unto them, “When it becomes ramsha {evening}, you say, ‘It is fair weather, for the shmaya {the skies} are semqath {red}.’

ܘܒܨܦܪܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܣܬܘܐ ܗܘ ܣܡܩܬ ܓܝܪ ܫܡܝܐ ܟܡܝܪܐܝܬ ܢܣܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܦܪܨܘܦܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܬܒܩܘܢ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܕܙܒܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܬܦܪܫܘܢ
3 And in the tsaphra {the morning} you say, ‘Yawmana {Today} is sathua {winter}, for the shmaya {the skies} are a gloomy red.’ Hypocrites! You know how to examine the shmaya {the skies}; but the signs of this time you don’t know how to discern.

ܫܪܒܬܐ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܘܓܝܪܬܐ ܐܬܐ ܒܥܝܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܐ ܡܬܝܗܒܐ ܠܗ ܐܠܐ ܐܬܗ ܕܝܘܢܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܘܫܒܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܐܙܠ
4 An evil and adulterous generation requests an atha {a miraculous sign}. And an atha {a miraculous sign} will not be given unto it, except the sign of Yawnan Nabiya {Jonah, the Prophet}.” And He left them and departed.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܠܥܒܪܐ ܛܥܘ ܕܢܣܒܘܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܚܡܐ
5 And when His Disciples came to the other side {lit. the crossing} they forgot that they should take lakhma {bread} with them.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܚܙܘ ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܡܢ ܚܡܝܪܐ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܕܙܕܘܩܝܐ
6 Then He said unto them, “Take heed! Beware of the khamiyra {the leaven} of the Phrishe {the Pharisees} and the Zaduqaye {the Sadducees}.”

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܬܪܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܠܚܡܐ ܠܐ ܢܣܒܘ
7 But, they were reasoning in their souls {in themselves} and saying it is because we haven’t taken lakhma {bread}.”

ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܡܬܚܫܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܙܥܘܪܝ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܠܚܡܐ ܠܐ ܫܩܠܬܘܢ
8 But, Eshu {Y’shu} knew it, and said unto them, “What are you reasoning in your souls, zuray Haymanutha {little of Faith}, that it is because you didn’t take lakhma {bread}?

ܠܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܫܐ ܐܣܬܟܠܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܥܗܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܚܡܫܐ ܠܚܡܝܢ ܕܚܡܫܐ ܐܠܦܝܢ ܘܟܡܐ ܩܘܦܝܢܝܢ ܫܩܠܬܘܢ
9 You still don’t understand? Don’t you remember those five lakhmiyn {bread loaves} of the five thousand, and how many baskets you took up?

ܘܠܐ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܫܒܥܐ ܠܚܡܝܢ ܕܐܪܒܥܐ ܐܠܦܝܢ ܘܟܡܐ ܐܣܦܪܝܕܝܢ ܫܩܠܬܘܢ
10 Nor those seven lakhmiyn {bread loaves} of the four thousand, and how many baskets you took up?

ܐܝܟܢ ܠܐ ܐܣܬܟܠܬܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܠܚܡܐ ܐܡܪܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܕܬܙܕܗܪܘܢ ܡܢ ܚܡܝܪܐ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܕܙܕܘܩܝܐ
11 How is it that you don’t understand that it wasn’t about lakhma {bread}, that I spoke unto you, but rather, that you should beware of the khamiyra {the leaven} of the Phrishe {the Pharisees} and the Zaduqaye {the Sadducees}?”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܣܬܟܠܘ ܕܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܕܢܙܕܗܪܘܢ ܡܢ ܚܡܝܪܐ ܕܠܚܡܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܕܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܕܙܕܘܩܝܐ
12 Then they understood that He hadn’t said that they should beware of the khamiyra d’lakhma {the leaven of bread}, but rather, of the yulphana {the doctrine} of the Phrishe {the Pharisees} and the Zaduqaye {the Sadducees}.

ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܕܩܣܪܝܐ ܕܦܝܠܝܦܘܣ ܡܫܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢܘ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܥܠܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܕܐܝܬܝ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
13 Now, when Eshu {Y’shu} came unto the region of Caesarea of Philippi, He was asking His Disciples and saying, “Who do men say, concerning Me, that I am a son of a man?”

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܐܝܬ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܡܥܡܕܢܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܠܝܐ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܪܡܝܐ ܐܘ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܢܒܝܐ
14 Then they said, “There are some who are saying Yukhanan Mamdana {John, The Immerser/Baptizer}, but others, EliYa {Elijah} and others, EramiYa {Jeremiah}, or one from The Nabiye {The Prophets}.”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܘ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܝܬܝ
15 He said unto them, “But you, who do you say that I am?”

ܥܢܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܚܝܐ
16 Shimeun Kepha {Simeon, The Rock} answered and said, “You are Meshikha {The Anointed One}, The Son of Alaha Khaya {The Living God}.”

ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܛܘܒܝܟ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܒܪܗ ܕܝܘܢܐ ܕܒܣܪܐ ܘܕܡܐ ܠܐ ܓܠܐ ܠܟ ܐܠܐ ܐܒܝ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
17 Eshu {Y’shu} answered and said unto him, “Blessed are you Shimeun breh d’Yawna, {Simeon, the son of Jonah}, because flesh and blood hasn’t revealed this unto you, but rather, My Father, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}.

ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܕܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܥܠ ܗܕܐ ܟܐܦܐ ܐܒܢܝܗ ܠܥܕܬܝ ܘܬܪܥܐ ܕܫܝܘܠ ܠܐ ܢܚܣܢܘܢܗ
18 Also I am saying unto you, that you are Kepha {The Rock}, and upon this Kepha {Rock} I will build Edthi {My Assembly}, and the gates of Sheul {Hell} will not resist it.

ܠܟ ܐܬܠ ܩܠܝܕܐ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܘܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܬܐܣܘܪ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܐܣܝܪ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܡܕܡ ܕܬܫܪܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܫܪܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ
19 Unto you I will give The Qliyde d’Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Keys of The Kingdom of The Heavens}, and every thing that you might bind on the Ara {the Earth} will be bound in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, and the thing that you might loose on the Ara {the Earth}, will be loosed in the Shmaya {the Heavens}.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܦܩܕ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܠܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܕܗܘܝܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ
20 Then He commanded His Disciples that they should tell no man that He is Meshikha {The Anointed One}.

ܘܡܢ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܪܝ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܡܚܘܝܘ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܥܬܝܕ ܗܘ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܣܓܝ ܢܚܫ ܡܢ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܡܢ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܣܦܪܐ ܘܢܬܩܛܠ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܬܠܬܐ ܢܩܘܡ
21 And from then on, Eshu {Y’shu} began to make known unto His Disciples that it was destined that He must go unto Urishlim {Jerusalem} and would suffer much from the Qashishe {the Elders} and from the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs, and the Saphre {the Scribes}. And He would be killed, and the third day would arise.

ܘܕܒܪܗ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܫܪܝ ܠܡܟܐܐ ܒܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܚܣ ܠܟ ܡܪܝ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܗܕܐ
22 But, Kepha {The Rock} took hold of Him and began to rebuke Him, and said, “Far be it from you, Mari {My Lord}, that this should happen unto you!”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܦܢܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܟܐܦܐ ܙܠ ܠܟ ܠܒܣܬܪܝ ܣܛܢܐ ܬܘܩܠܬܐ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܪܥܐ ܐܢܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܒܢܝܢܫܐ
23 He then turned around and said unto Kepha {The Rock}, “You must get behind Me, satana {adversary}! You are a tuqaltha {stumbling block} to Me because you don’t think of Alaha {God}, but rather, of the sons of men.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ ܢܟܦܘܪ ܒܢܦܫܗ ܘܢܫܩܘܠ ܙܩܝܦܗ ܘܢܐܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ
24 Then Eshu {Y’shu} said unto His Disciples, “The one who is desiring that he might follow Me, he should be denying himself, and he should be taking up his cross and be following Me.

ܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܚܐ ܢܦܫܗ ܢܘܒܕܝܗ ܘܡܢ ܕܢܘܒܕ ܢܦܫܗ ܡܛܠܬܝ ܢܫܟܚܝܗ
25 for, he who desires that he might save naphsheh {his soul}, will be losing it. And he who will be losing naphsheh {his soul}, because of Me, will be finding it.

ܡܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܢܬܗܢܐ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܐܢ ܟܠܗ ܥܠܡܐ ܢܩܢܐ ܘܢܦܫܗ ܢܚܣܪ ܐܘ ܡܢܐ ܢܬܠ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܬܚܠܘܦܐ ܕܢܦܫܗ
26 For, what will a man be profited if he will be gaining the entire world, and be losing naphsheh {his soul}? Or what will a man be giving in exchange of naphsheh {his soul}?

ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܒܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܕܐܒܘܗܝ ܥܡ ܡܠܐܟܘܗܝ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܦܪܘܥ ܠܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܐܝܟ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ
27 For, it is destined that The Son of Man will be coming in The Glory of His Father, with Malakuhi Qadishe {His Holy Heavenly Messengers}, and then He will be rewarding each man according to his works.

ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܐܢܫܐ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܬܢܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܛܥܡܘܢ ܡܘܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܚܙܘܢ ܠܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܗ
28 Amiyn {Truly} I say unto you, that there are some who are standing here who will not be tasting death until they will be seeing The Son of Man, who is coming in His Kingdom.”


Chapter 17
ܘܒܬܪ ܫܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܕܒܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܟܐܦܐ ܘܠܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܘܐܣܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܪܡܐ ܒܠܚܘܕܝܗܘܢ
1 And after six days, Y’shu took Kepha {The Rock}, and Yaqub {Jacob/James}, and Yukhanan {John} his brother, and they ascended a high mountain, alone.

ܘܐܫܬܚܠܦ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܕܡܝܗܘܢ ܘܢܗܪ ܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܐܝܟ ܫܡܫܐ ܢܚܬܘܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܚܘܪܘ ܐܝܟ ܢܘܗܪܐ
2 And Eshu {Y’shu} was transformed before them, and His face was shining as the shemsha {the sun}. Thereupon, His outer garments became white as nuhra {light}.

ܘܐܬܚܙܝܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܘܫܐ ܘܐܠܝܐ ܟܕ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܥܡܗ
3 And Mushe {Moses} and EliYa {Elijah} appeared unto them, while they were speaking with Him.

ܥܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܡܪܝ ܫܦܝܪ ܗܘ ܠܢ ܕܬܢܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܘܐܢ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܢܥܒܕ ܬܢܢ ܬܠܬ ܡܛܠܠܝܢ ܚܕܐ ܠܟ ܘܚܕܐ ܠܡܘܫܐ ܘܚܕܐ ܠܐܠܝܐ
4 Then Kepha {The Rock} responded and said unto Eshu {Y’shu}, “Mari {My Lord}, it is good for us that we are here, and if you desire, we will make here three shelters; one for you, and one for Mushe {Moses}, and one for EliYa {Elijah}.”

ܘܥܕ ܗܘ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܐ ܥܢܢܐ ܢܗܝܪܬܐ ܐܛܠܬ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܩܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܥܢܢܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܢܘ ܒܪܝ ܚܒܝܒܐ ܕܒܗ ܐܨܛܒܝܬ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘ
5 And while he was speaking, behold, a bright nana {cloud} cast a shade on them, and a Voice came from the nana {the cloud}, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am pleased. Listen to Him!

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܢܦܠܘ ܥܠ ܐܦܝܗܘܢ ܘܕܚܠܘ ܛܒ
6 And when The Disciples heard it, they fell on their faces, and were very afraid.

ܘܐܬܩܪܒ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܩܪܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܩܘܡܘ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠܘܢ
7 And Eshu {Y’shu} came towards them and touched them, and said unto them, “Arise, don’t be afraid.”

ܘܐܪܝܡܘ ܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܠܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܚܙܘ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܒܠܚܘܕܘܗܝ
8 And they lifted up their eyes and didn’t see anyone except Eshu {Y’shu} only.

ܘܟܕ ܢܚܬܝܢ ܡܢ ܛܘܪܐ ܦܩܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܥܝܢ ܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܚܙܘܐ ܗܢܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܩܘܡ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܡܝܬܐ
9 And while they were descending from the mountain, Eshu {Y’shu} commanded them and said unto them, “You shouldn’t tell this khezua {vision} you have seen to anyone, until The Son of Man will be raised from the dead.”

ܘܫܐܠܘܗܝ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܣܦܪܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܐܠܝܐ ܘܠܐ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܠܘܩܕܡ
10 And His Disciples asked Him and said unto Him, “Why then do the Saphre {the Scribes} say that it is fitting that EliYa {Elijah} should come first?”

ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܠܝܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܕܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܢܫܠܡ
11 Eshu {Y’shu} answered and said unto them, EliYa {Elijah} comes first, so that every thing might be fulfilled.

ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܗܐ ܐܠܝܐ ܐܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܝܕܥܘܗܝ ܘܥܒܕܘ ܒܗ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܨܒܘ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܕܢܚܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ
12 But, I say unto you, that behold, EliYa {Elijah} has come, and they didn’t recognize him. And they did with him every thing that they desired. Thus also, The Son of Man is destined that He will suffer from them.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܣܬܟܠܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܥܠ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܡܥܡܕܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
13 Then The Disciples understood that He spoke unto them about Yukhanan Mamdana {John, the Immerser/the Baptizer}.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܠܘܬ ܟܢܫܐ ܩܪܒ ܠܗ ܓܒܪܐ ܘܒܪܟ ܥܠ ܒܘܪܟܘܗܝ
14 And when they had come to the kensha {the crowd}, a gabra {a man} came near to Him, and kneeled down upon his knees.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܝ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝ ܒܪܝ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܒܪ ܐܓܪܐ ܘܒܝܫܐܝܬ ܥܒܝܕ ܟܡܐ ܓܝܪ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܒܢܘܪܐ ܢܦܠ ܘܟܡܐ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܒܡܝܐ
15 And he said unto him, “Mari {My Lord} have mercy upon me! My son is a lunatic {lit. a son of the rooftop} and is evilly affected. For, many times he falls in a nura {a fire}, and many times in the maya {the waters}.

ܘܩܪܒܬܗ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܝܟ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܠܡܐܣܝܘܬܗ
16 And I brought him unto Your Disciples, and they were not able to heal him.

ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܘܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܘܡܥܩܠܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܐܡܬܝ ܐܗܘܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܐܡܬܝ ܐܣܝܒܪܟܘܢ ܐܝܬܝܗܝ ܠܝ ܠܟܐ
17 Eshu {Y’shu} answered and said, “Oh unfaithful and perverse generation! How long {lit. until when} will I be with you, and how long {lit. until when} will I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.”

ܘܟܐܐ ܒܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܢܦܩ ܡܢܗ ܫܐܕܐ ܘܐܬܐܣܝ ܛܠܝܐ ܡܢ ܗܝ ܫܥܬܐ
18 And Eshu {Y’shu} rebuked it, and the shida {the demon} went out from him. And the talya {the boy} was healed from that moment.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܠܚܘܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܠܡܢܐ ܚܢܢ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܢ ܠܡܐܣܝܘܬܗ
19 Then, The Disciples came to Eshu {Y’shu}, alone, and said unto Him, “Why were we not able to heal him?”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܛܠ ܠܐ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܟܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܢ ܬܗܘܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܦܪܕܬܐ ܕܚܪܕܠܐ ܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܫܢܐ ܡܟܐ ܘܢܫܢܐ ܘܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܢܚܣܢܟܘܢ
20 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “Because of your unbelief. For, amiyn {truly} I say unto you, that if you had Haymanutha {Faith} in you like a grain of khardla {mustard}, you could say unto this tura {mountain}, ‘depart from here’, and it would depart, and not a thing would be too hard for you.

ܗܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܓܢܣܐ ܠܐ ܢܦܩ ܐܠܐ ܒܨܘܡܐ ܘܒܨܠܘܬܐ
21 But, this kind doesn’t go out except by Tsuma {Fasting}, and by Tslutha {Prayer}.”

ܟܕ ܡܬܗܦܟܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܓܠܝܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܕܢܫܬܠܡ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ
22 Now, while they were returning, through Galila {Galilee}, Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “It is destined that The Son of Man will be betrayed into the hands of the sons of men.

ܘܢܩܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܬܠܬܐ ܢܩܘܡ ܘܟܪܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܛܒ
23 And they will kill Him, and the third day He will rise.” And they were very sad.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܠܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ ܩܪܒܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܢܣܒܝܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܙܘܙܝܢ ܕܟܣܦ ܪܫܐ ܠܘܬ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܪܒܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܝܗܒ ܬܪܝܢ ܙܘܙܘܗܝ
24 And when they had come unto Kaparnakhum {Capernaum}, those who were collecting two each zuziyn {= two drachma coins} of the head silver {the tribute tax i.e. poll taxes}, came towards Kepha {The Rock} and said unto him, “Does not Rabkun {Your master} give zuzuhi {his two coins}?”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܢ ܘܟܕ ܥܠ ܟܐܦܐ ܠܒܝܬܐ ܩܕܡܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܢܐ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܠܟ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܡܢ ܡܢ ܢܣܒܝܢ ܡܟܣܐ ܘܟܣܦ ܪܫܐ ܡܢ ܒܢܝܗܘܢ ܐܘ ܡܢ ܢܘܟܪܝܐ
25 He said unto them, “Yes.” And when Kepha {The Rock} entered into the house, Eshu {Y’shu} came in front of him, and said unto him, “How does it seem to you Shimeun {Simeon}? The Malke d’Ara {The Kings of the Earth}, from whom do they receive maksa {i.e. sales/goods taxes}, and the head silver {the tribute tax i.e. poll taxes}? From their sons, or from strangers?

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܡܢ ܢܘܟܪܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܕܝܢ ܒܢܝ ܚܐܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܢܝܐ
26 Shimeun {Simeon} said unto Him, “From strangers.” Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “The sons therefore, are free sons!”

ܕܠܐ ܕܝܢ ܢܟܫܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܙܠ ܠܝܡܐ ܘܐܪܡܐ ܒܠܘܥܐ ܘܢܘܢܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܕܣܠܩ ܦܬܚ ܦܘܡܗ ܘܬܫܟܚ ܐܣܬܝܪܐ ܗܝ ܣܒ ܘܗܒ ܚܠܦܝ ܘܚܠܦܝܟ
27 But, so that it shouldn’t offend them, go unto the yama {the sea} and cast a hook, and the first nuna {fish} that comes up, open its mouth, and you will find an estira {a shekel}. Take that and give it for Me, and for you.”

Chapter 18
ܒܗܝ ܫܥܬܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܡܢܘ ܟܝ ܪܒ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
1 At that moment The Disciples came to Eshu {Y’shu}, and said, “Who perhaps is the greatest in The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of The Heavens}?”

ܘܩܪܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܛܠܝܐ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ
2 And Eshu {Y’shu} called a talya {a young boy} and stood him in their midst,

ܘܐܡܪ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܢ ܠܐ ܬܬܗܦܟܘܢ ܘܬܗܘܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܛܠܝܐ ܠܐ ܬܥܠܘܢ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
3 and said, “Amiyn, {Truly} I say unto you, that unless you repent and become like talaye {young boys/children}, you will not enter into The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of The Heavens}.

ܡܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܡܡܟܟ ܢܦܫܗ ܐܝܟ ܗܢܐ ܛܠܝܐ ܗܘ ܢܗܘܐ ܪܒ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
4 Whoever therefore who humbles his soul {himself}, like this talya {young boy/child}, he will be great in The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of The Heavens}.

ܘܡܢ ܕܢܩܒܠ ܐܝܟ ܛܠܝܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܫܡܝ ܠܝ ܗܘ ܡܩܒܠ
5 And whoever that will receive, in My Name, such a one as this talya {young boy/child}, he receives Me.

ܘܟܠ ܕܢܟܫܠ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܕܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܒܝ ܦܩܚ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܬܠܝܐ ܪܚܝܐ ܕܚܡܪܐ ܒܨܘܪܗ ܘܡܛܒܥ ܒܥܘܡܩܘܗܝ ܕܝܡܐ
6 And all who might offend one from these zure {little ones} who believe in Me, it is be better for him that the millstone of a donkey should be hung upon his neck, and drown in the depths of the yama {the sea}!

ܘܝ ܠܥܠܡܐ ܡܢ ܡܟܫܘܠܐ ܐܢܢܩܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܐܬܘܢ ܡܟܫܘܠܐ ܘܝ ܕܝܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܕܒܐܝܕܗ ܢܐܬܘܢ ܡܟܫܘܠܐ
7 Woe unto the alma {the world} because of offenses, for it is inevitable that makshule {offenses} will come, but, woe unto the gabra {the man} by whose hand the makshule {offenses} might come.

8 But, if your hand or your foot offends you, cut it off, and cast it from you. It is better for you that you should enter into life while you are lame or while you are crippled, and not be thrown into The Nura {The Fire}, which is everlasting, while you have two hands or two feet!

ܘܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܥܝܢܟ ܡܟܫܠܐ ܠܟ ܚܨܝܗ ܘܫܕܝܗ ܡܢܟ ܛܒ ܗܘ ܠܟ ܕܒܚܕܐ ܥܝܢܐ ܬܥܘܠ ܠܚܝܐ ܘܠܐ ܟܕ ܐܝܬ ܠܟ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܥܝܢܝܢ ܬܦܠ ܒܓܗܢܐ ܕܢܘܪܐ
9 And if aynak {your eye} is offending you, pluck it out, and cast it from you. It is better for you that you enter into life with one ayna {eye}, and not be thrown into the Gihana d’Nura {the Gehenna of Fire} while you have two eyes.

ܚܙܘ ܠܐ ܬܒܣܘܢ ܥܠ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܠܐܟܝܗܘܢ ܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܚܙܝܢ ܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܕܐܒܝ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
10 See that you don’t be neglectful concerning one of these little ones, for, I say unto you, that Malakayhun {their Heavenly Messengers} at all times behold the face of My Father, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}.

ܐܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܕܢܚܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܒܝܕ ܗܘܐ
11 For, The Son of Man has come, so that He might save the thing which was lost.

ܡܢܐ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܢ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܠܐܢܫ ܡܐܐ ܥܪܒܝܢ ܘܢܛܥܐ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܬܫܥܝܢ ܘܬܫܥܐ ܒܛܘܪܐ ܘܐܙܠ ܒܥܐ ܠܗܘ ܕܛܥܐ
12 How does it appear to you? If there might be someone who had one hundred sheep, and one might go astray from them, does he not leave the ninety and nine on the mountain, and go seeking that one which strayed?

ܘܐܢ ܢܫܟܚܗ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܚܕܐ ܒܗ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܬܫܥܝܢ ܘܬܫܥܐ ܕܠܐ ܛܥܘ
13 And if he should find it, amiyn {truly} I say unto you, that he rejoices in him more than the ninety and nine which didn’t stray.

ܗܟܢܐ ܠܝܬ ܨܒܝܢܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܕܢܐܒܕ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܙܥܘܪܐ
14 Likewise, it isn’t the will before Your Father, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, that one from these little ones should be lost.

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܣܟܠ ܒܟ ܐܚܘܟ ܙܠ ܐܟܣܝܗܝ ܒܝܢܝܟ ܘܠܗ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܐܢ ܫܡܥܟ ܝܬܪܬ ܐܚܘܟ
15 Now, if your brother does wrong against you, go rebuke him, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have won your brother.

ܘܐܢ ܠܐ ܫܡܥܟ ܕܒܪ ܥܡܟ ܚܕ ܐܘ ܬܪܝܢ ܕܥܠ ܦܘܡ ܬܪܝܢ ܐܘ ܬܠܬܐ ܣܗܕܝܢ ܬܩܘܡ ܟܠ ܡܠܐ
16 And if he doesn’t listen to you, take with you one or two others, so that upon the mouth of two or three sahdiyn {witnesses}, every word will be established.

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܢܫܡܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܥܕܬܐ ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܠܥܕܬܐ ܢܫܡܥ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܐܝܟ ܡܟܣܐ ܘܐܝܟ ܚܢܦܐ
17 But, if he will also not listen to them, tell The Edtha {The Assembly/The Church}. But, if he will also not listen to The Edtha {The Assembly/The Church}, let him be unto you like a Maksa {a Tax-Collector} and like a Khanpha {a Pagan}.

ܘܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܬܐܣܪܘܢ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܐܣܝܪ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܡܕܡ ܕܬܫܪܘܢ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܫܪܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ
18 And amiyn {truly} I say unto you, that all that you might bind in the Ara {the Earth}, will be bound in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, and the thing that you might loose in the Ara {the Earth}, will be loosed in the Shmaya {the Heavens}.

ܬܘܒ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܢܫܬܘܘܢ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܥܠ ܟܠ ܨܒܘ ܕܢܫܐܠܘܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܒܝ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
19 Again I say unto you, that if two from you should agree in the Ara {the Earth} concerning any matter they might ask, they will have it from The Presence of My Father, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens},

ܐܝܟܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܬܪܝܢ ܐܘ ܬܠܬܐ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܒܫܡܝ ܬܡܢ ܐܢܐ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ
20 for, where two or three are assembled, in My Name, I’m there among them.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܒ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܝ ܟܡܐ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܐܢ ܢܣܟܠ ܒܝ ܐܚܝ ܐܫܒܘܩ ܠܗ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܒܥ ܙܒܢܝܢ
21 Then Kepha {The Rock} drew near to Him, and said unto Him, “Mari {My Lord}, how many times should I forgive, if my brother does wrong against me? Should I forgive him up to seven times?”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܒܥ ܐܠܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܒܥܝܢ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܫܒܥ ܫܒܥ
22 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “I don’t say unto you, up to seven, but rather, up to seventy times seven and seven.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܕܡܝܬ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܨܒܐ ܕܢܣܒ ܚܘܫܒܢܐ ܡܢ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ
23 Because of this, The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of The Heavens} is likened unto a gabra, a Malka {a King}, who desired to receive an accounting from his servants.

ܘܟܕ ܫܪܝ ܠܡܣܒ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܚܕ ܕܚܝܒ ܪܒܘ ܟܟܪܝܢ
24 And when he began to receive, they brought to him one who owed ten thousand kakriyn {talents}.

ܘܟܕ ܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܠܡܦܪܥ ܦܩܕ ܡܪܗ ܕܢܙܕܒܢ ܗܘ ܘܐܢܬܬܗ ܘܒܢܘܗܝ ܘܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܘܢܦܪܘܥ
25 And when he didn’t have payment, his lord commanded that he should be sold, he and his wife and his children and every thing he had, and he should repay.

ܘܢܦܠ ܗܘ ܥܒܕܐ ܣܓܕ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܐܓܪ ܥܠܝ ܪܘܚܐ ܘܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܦܪܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ
26 And that servant fell down and worshiped him and said, ‘Mari {My lord}, be patient of spirit concerning me and I will repay every thing unto you!’

ܘܐܬܪܚܡ ܡܪܗ ܕܥܒܕܐ ܗܘ ܘܫܪܝܗܝ ܘܚܘܒܬܗ ܫܒܩ ܠܗ
27 And his lord had compassion on that servant and released him and forgave him his debt.

ܢܦܩ ܕܝܢ ܥܒܕܐ ܗܘ ܘܐܫܟܚ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܟܢܘܬܗ ܕܚܝܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܕܝܢܪܐ ܡܐܐ ܘܐܚܕܗ ܘܚܢܩ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܒ ܠܝ ܡܕܡ ܕܚܝܒ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ
28 Now, that servant went out and found one from his fellow servants who had owed him one hundred diynare {denarius} and he seized him and was choking him and said unto him, “Give to me the thing you owe to me!”

ܘܢܦܠ ܗܘ ܟܢܬܗ ܥܠ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܒܥܐ ܡܢܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܓܪ ܥܠܝ ܪܘܚܐ ܘܦܪܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ
29 And that fellow servant fell down upon his feet begging him, and said unto him, ‘Be patient of spirit concerning me and I will repay you!’

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܙܠ ܐܪܡܝܗ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܬܠ ܠܗ ܡܐ ܕܚܝܒ ܠܗ
30 But he didn’t want to, but rather, he went and cast him into the prisoner’s house until he gave him what he owed him.

ܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܕܝܢ ܟܢܘܬܗܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܗܘܐ ܟܪܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܛܒ ܘܐܬܘ ܐܘܕܥܘ ܠܡܪܗܘܢ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܗܘܐ
31 Now, when their fellow servants saw the thing which happened, they were very sad, and having come, made known to their lord all that which happened.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܝܗܝ ܡܪܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܥܒܕܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܗܝ ܟܠܗ ܚܘܒܬܐ ܫܒܩܬ ܠܟ ܕܒܥܝܬ ܡܢܝ
32 Then his lord called him and said unto him, ‘Abda bish {evil servant}! I forgave you all of that khawbtha {debt} because you begged me.

ܠܐ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܐܦ ܐܢܬ ܕܬܚܘܢ ܠܟܢܬܟ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܚܢܬܟ
33 Wasn’t it right for you that you also should have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you?’

ܘܪܓܙ ܡܪܗ ܘܐܫܠܡܗ ܠܡܢܓܕܢܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܦܪܘܥ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܚܝܒ ܠܗ
34 And his lord was angry, and delivered him unto the managdane {lit. the one who gives lashes} until he repaid every thing that he owed him.

ܗܟܢܐ ܢܥܒܕ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܒܝ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܐܢ ܠܐ ܬܫܒܩܘܢ ܐܢܫ ܠܐܚܘܗܝ ܡܢ ܠܒܟܘܢ ܣܟܠܘܬܗ
35 Likewise, Abi {My Father}, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, will do unto you, if you don’t forgive a man, his brother, his offenses from your heart.”


Chapter 19
ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܫܠܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܫܩܠ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܬܚܘܡܐ ܕܝܗܘܕ ܠܥܒܪܐ ܕܝܘܪܕܢܢ
1 And it happened that when Eshu {Y’shu} had finished these words, he departed from Galila {Galilee}, and He came unto the border of Yehud {Judea}, to the other side of the Yurdnan {the Jordan}.

ܘܐܬܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܐܣܝ ܐܢܘܢ ܬܡܢ
2 And great kenshe {crowds} came after {i.e. followed} Him, and He healed them there.

ܘܩܪܒܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܘܡܢܣܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢ ܫܠܝܛ ܠܐܢܫ ܕܢܫܪܐ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܒܟܠ ܥܠܐ
3 And the Phrishe {the Pharisees} drew near to Him, and were testing Him and saying, “Is it shaliyt {lawful} for a man to dismiss {i.e. divorce} his wife for any cause?”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܩܪܝܬܘܢ ܕܗܘ ܕܥܒܕ ܡܢ ܒܪܫܝܬ ܕܟܪܐ ܘܢܩܒܬܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܘܢ
4 Then He answered and said unto them, “Have you not read that He who created from the brishiyth {the beginning}, He created them dekra {male} and neqbatha {female}?”

ܘܐܡܪ ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܢܫܒܘܩ ܓܒܪܐ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܘܠܐܡܗ ܘܢܩܦ ܠܐܢܬܬܗ ܘܢܗܘܘܢ ܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܚܕ ܒܣܪ
5 And He said, “Because of this, a gabra {a man} will leave his father and his mother, and will be joined unto anttheh {his wife}, and they will be, both of them, one basar {flesh}.

ܡܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܘ ܬܪܝܢ ܐܠܐ ܚܕ ܦܓܪ ܡܕܡ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܙܘܓ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܠܐ ܢܦܪܫ
6 Therefore, they will not be threyn {two}, but rather, khad phagar {one body}. The thing therefore that Alaha {God} has joined, a bar-nasha {a son of man} should not separate.”

ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܘܫܐ ܦܩܕ ܕܢܬܠ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܫܘܒܩܢܐ ܘܢܫܪܝܗ
7 They said unto Him, “Why then did Mushe {Moses} command to give a kathaba d’shubqana {a writing of release}, and dismiss {i.e. divorce} her?”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܘܫܐ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܩܫܝܘܬ ܠܒܟܘܢ ܐܦܣ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܬܫܪܘܢ ܢܫܝܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܒܪܫܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܟܢܐ
8 He said unto them, “Mushe {Moses}, because of the hardness of your heart had allowed you to dismiss your wives, but, from the brashiyth {the beginning}, it wasn’t so.

ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܕܫܒܩ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܕܠܐ ܓܘܪܐ ܘܢܣܒ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܓܐܪ ܘܡܢ ܕܢܣܒ ܫܒܝܩܬܐ ܓܐܪ
9 But, I say unto you that he who leaves anttheh {his wife}, without the cause of gura {adultery}, and takes another, commits adultery. And he who takes a shabiyqtha {a divorced woman}, commits adultery.

ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܝܬ ܥܕܠܝܐ ܒܝܢܝ ܓܒܪܐ ܠܐܢܬܬܐ ܠܐ ܦܩܚ ܠܡܣܒ ܐܢܬܬܐ
10 His Disciples said unto Him, “If such is the reproach between a gabra {man/husband} and an anttha {a wife}, it is better not to take an anttha {a wife}!”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܣܦܩ ܠܗ ܠܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܝܗܝܒ ܠܗ
11 Then He said unto them, “This word doesn’t apply to every man, but only unto he whom it is given:

12 For, there are mahaymane {eunuchs} begotten thus from the womb of their mother. And there are mahaymane {eunuchs} who have become mahaymane {eunuchs} by the sons of men. And there are mahaymane {eunuchs} who made their souls {themselves} mahaymane {eunuchs} on account of The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens}. Whomever that this is able to be applied to, let it be applied.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܛܠܝܐ ܕܢܣܝܡ ܐܝܕܗ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܢܨܠܐ ܘܟܐܘ ܒܗܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
13 Then talaye {young boys/children} drew near to Him, so that He might place His hand upon them and pray, and His Disciples rebuked them.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܒܘܩܘ ܛܠܝܐ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܘܬܝ ܘܠܐ ܬܟܠܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܝܟ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ
14 But He, Eshu {Y’shu}, said unto them, “Let the talaye {the young boys/children} come to Me and don’t hinder them, for, the ones who are like these, theirs is The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens}.”

ܘܣܡ ܐܝܕܗ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܙܠ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ
15 And He placed His hand upon them, and departed from there.

ܘܐܬܐ ܚܕ ܩܪܒ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܛܒܐ ܡܢܐ ܕܛܒ ܐܥܒܕ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܠܝ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
16 And one came near, and said unto Him, “Malphana taba {good teacher}, what is something good that I should do, so that I may have Khaye d’lalam {eternal Life}?”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܢܐ ܩܪܐ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ ܛܒܐ ܠܝܬ ܛܒܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܚܕ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܕܬܥܘܠ ܠܚܝܐ ܛܪ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ
17 Then He said unto him, “Why do you call Me taba {good}? None is taba {good}, except only One, Alaha {God}. But if you desire that you may enter unto Khaye {Life}, keep The Phuqdane {The Commandments}.

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܕܠܐ ܬܩܛܘܠ ܘܠܐ ܬܓܘܪ ܘܠܐ ܬܓܢܘܒ ܘܠܐ ܬܣܗܕ ܣܗܕܘܬ ܫܘܩܪܐ
18 He said unto Him, “Which ones?” Then Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “That you shall not thequl {commit murder}, and you shall not thagur {commit adultery}, and you shall not thegnub {steal}, and you shall not theshad sahduth shuqra {witness false testimony}.

ܘܝܩܪ ܠܐܒܘܟ ܘܠܐܡܟ ܘܬܚܒ ܠܩܪܝܒܟ ܐܝܟ ܢܦܫܟ
19 And honor your father and your mother, and love your neighbor as naphshak {your soul/yourself}.”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܘ ܥܠܝܡܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܢܛܪܬ ܐܢܝܢ ܡܢ ܛܠܝܘܬܝ ܡܢܐ ܚܣܝܪ ܐܢܐ
20 That layma {young man} said unto Him, “These all I have kept them, from talyuthi {my youth/childhood}, what am I lacking?”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܓܡܝܪܐ ܠܡܗܘܐ ܙܠ ܙܒܢ ܩܢܝܢܟ ܘܗܒ ܠܡܣܟܢܐ ܘܬܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܣܝܡܬܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ
21 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “If you desire to be gamiyra {perfect}, go sell genyanak {your possessions}, and give them unto the meskine {the poor}, and you will have {lit. there will be for you} siymtha {treasure} in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, and come follow Me.”

ܫܡܥ ܕܝܢ ܗܘ ܥܠܝܡܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܘܐܙܠ ܟܕ ܟܪܝܐ ܠܗ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܓܝܪ ܩܢܝܢܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ
22 But, that layma {young man} heard this word, and departed while sad, for, he had many genyana {possessions}.

ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܥܛܠܐ ܗܝ ܠܥܬܝܪܐ ܕܢܥܘܠ ܠܡܠܟܘܬ ܫܡܝܐ
23 Eshu {Y’shu} then said unto His Disciples, “Amiyn {Truly} I say unto you, that it is atla {difficult} for an athiyra {a rich man} that he might enter into Malkuth Shmaya {Heaven’s Kingdom}.

ܬܘܒ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܕܠܝܠ ܗܘ ܠܓܡܠܐ ܠܡܥܠ ܒܚܪܘܪܐ ܕܡܚܛܐ ܐܘ ܥܬܝܪܐ ܕܢܥܘܠ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
24 Now furthermore, I say unto you, that it is easier for a camel to enter into the akhrura d’amkhata {the hole of a needle}, than an athiyra {a rich man} that he might enter into The Malkutha d’Alaha {The Kingdom of God}.”

ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܬܗܝܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܛܒ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܡܢܘ ܟܝ ܡܫܟܚ ܕܢܚܐ
25 Then when The Talmiyde {The Disciples} heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, and they were saying, “Who indeed is able to live {or, to be saved}?”

26 Eshu {Y’shu} looked at them, and said unto them, “With the sons of men this isn’t possible, but, with Alaha {God} every thing is possible.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܐ ܚܢܢ ܫܒܩܢ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܒܬܪܟ ܡܢܐ ܟܝ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܢ
27 Then answered Kepha {The Rock} and said unto Him, “Behold, we have left every thing, and have come to follow You. What indeed will we have?”

28 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “Amiyn {Truly} I say unto you, that you who have followed Me, in the Alma Khadtha {The New World/Age}, when The Son of Man sits upon The Thranus d’Shubkheh {The Throne of His Glory}, you also will sit upon twelve kursun {seats}, and you will judge The Thresar Shabte IysraIyl {The Twelve Tribes of Israel}.

29 And every one who has left houses, or brothers or sisters, or father or mother, or wife or sons {i.e. children}, or qurya {fields}, because of My Name, will receive one hundred-fold, and will inherit Khaye d’lalam {Eternal Life lit. lives which are eternal}.

ܣܓܝܐܐ ܕܝܢ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܘܐܚܪܝܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ
30 But, many who are qadmaye {the first ones}, will be kharaye {the last ones}, and the kharaye {the last ones}, qadmaye {the first ones}.


Chapter 20
ܕܡܝܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܡܪܐ ܒܝܬܐ ܕܢܦܩ ܒܨܦܪܐ ܕܢܐܓܘܪ ܦܥܠܐ ܠܟܪܡܗ
1 For, The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens} is likened to a gabra {a man}, a Mare Baytha {a House Lord}, who went out in the tsaphra {the morning} to hire phale {laborers} for karmeh {his vineyard}.

ܩܨ ܕܝܢ ܥܡ ܦܥܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܝܢܪܐ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܘܫܕܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܟܪܡܗ
2 Now, he qats {bargained} with the phale {the laborers} for a diynara {a denarius} in a day. And he sent them unto karmeh {his vineyard}.

ܘܢܦܩ ܒܬܠܬ ܫܥܝܢ ܘܚܙܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܒܫܘܩܐ ܘܒܛܝܠܝܢ
3 And he went out in the third hour and saw others who were standing idle in the shuqa {the marketplace}.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܠܘ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܟܪܡܐ ܘܡܕܡ ܕܘܠܐ ܝܗܒ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ
4 And he said unto them, ‘You also go unto the karma {the vineyard}, and I will give unto you the thing that is right.’

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܙܠܘ ܘܢܦܩ ܬܘܒ ܒܫܬ ܘܒܬܫܥ ܫܥܝܢ ܘܥܒܕ ܗܟܘܬ
5 Then they departed. And he went out again in the sixth, and in the ninth hour, and did likewise.

6 And about eleven hours he went out and found others who were standing, and idle, and he said unto them, ‘Why are you standing all day, and idle?’

ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܕܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܓܪܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܠܘ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܟܪܡܐ ܘܡܕܡ ܕܘܠܐ ܢܣܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
7 They said unto him, ‘Because no one has hired us.’ He said unto them also, ‘You also go unto the karma {the vineyard}, and you will receive the thing that is right.’

ܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܪܡܫܐ ܐܡܪ ܡܪܐ ܟܪܡܐ ܠܪܒܝܬܗ ܩܪܝ ܦܥܠܐ ܘܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܓܪܗܘܢ ܘܫܪܐ ܡܢ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܩܕܡܝܐ
8 Now, when it was ramsha {evening}, the Mare Karma {the Vineyard Lord} said unto rabaytheh {his steward}, ‘Call the phale {the laborers} and give unto them agarhun {their wages}, and begin from the last ones {i.e. the last ones hired}, and until the first ones {i.e. the first ones hired}.’

ܘܐܬܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܚܕܥܣܪܐ ܫܥܝܢ ܢܣܒܘ ܕܝܢܪ ܕܝܢܪ
9 And those who started after eleven hours, came, and each received a diynar {a denarius}.

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܘ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܣܒܪܘ ܕܝܬܝܪ ܫܩܠܝܢ ܘܫܩܠܘ ܕܝܢܪ ܕܝܢܪ ܐܦ ܗܢܘܢ
10 And when the qadmaye {the first ones} came, sabaru {they had hoped} that they were receiving more, and they also each received a diynar {a denarius}.

ܘܟܕ ܫܩܠܘ ܪܛܢܘ ܥܠ ܡܪܐ ܒܝܬܐ
11 And when they received it, ratenu {they murmured} against the Mare Baytha {the House Lord}.

ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܚܕܐ ܫܥܐ ܥܒܕܘ ܘܐܫܘܝܬ ܐܢܘܢ ܥܡܢ ܕܫܩܠܢ ܝܘܩܪܗ ܕܝܘܡܐ ܘܚܘܡܗ
12 And they said, ‘These last ones worked one hour, and you made them equal with us who bore the burden of the day, and its heat!’

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܚܒܪܝ ܠܐ ܡܥܘܠ ܐܢܐ ܒܟ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܕܝܢܪ ܩܨܬ ܥܡܝ
13 Then he answered and said unto one from them, ‘Khabri {My friend}, I didn’t behave wrongly with you. Was it not a diynar {a denarius} you had bargained with me?

ܣܒ ܕܝܠܟ ܘܙܠ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܗܢܐ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܐܬܠ ܐܝܟ ܕܠܟ

15 Or is it not shaliyt {lawful} for me that I may do the thing that I desire to do with my own? Or is aynak biysha {your eye evil} because I am tab {good}?’

ܗܟܢܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܘܩܕܡܝܐ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܣܓܝܐܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܩܪܝܐ ܘܙܥܘܪܝܢ ܓܒܝܐ
16 Thus the last ones, will be the first ones, and the first ones, the last ones. For, many are qraya {the called ones}, and few are the gabaya {the chosen ones}.”

ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܢܣܩ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܕܒܪ ܠܬܪܥܣܪ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܒܝܢܘܗܝ ܘܠܗܘܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
17 Now, Eshu {Y’shu} was prepared to ascend {go up} unto Urishlim {Jerusalem}, and He took The Twelve from among His Disciples on the road, and said unto them,

ܗܐ ܣܠܩܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܡܫܬܠܡ ܠܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܠܣܦܪܐ ܘܢܚܝܒܘܢܝܗܝ ܠܡܘܬܐ
18 “behold, we are ascending {going up} unto Urishlim {Jerusalem}, and The Son of Man will be delivered unto the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs} and unto the Saphre {the Scribes}, and they will condemn Him to death.

ܘܢܫܠܡܘܢܝܗܝ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܘܢܒܙܚܘܢ ܒܗ ܘܢܢܓܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܢܙܩܦܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܬܠܬܐ ܢܩܘܡ
19 And they will deliver Him unto the Amme {the Peoples/the Gentiles}, and they will laugh at {mock} Him, and they will scourge {whip/beat} Him, and they will crucify Him. And the third day He will arise.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܬ ܠܗ ܐܡܗܘܢ ܕܒܢܝ ܙܒܕܝ ܗܝ ܘܒܢܝܗ ܘܣܓܕܬ ܠܗ ܘܫܐܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܗ ܡܕܡ
20 Then, the mother of the sons of Zabday {Zebedee} came near to Him. And she and her sons segdath {bowed down to i.e. worshiped} Him, and was asking Him something.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܢܐ ܨܒܝܐ ܐܢܬܝ ܐܡܪܐ ܠܗ ܐܡܪ ܕܢܬܒܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܒܢܝ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܟ ܘܚܕ ܡܢ ܣܡܠܟ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܟ
21 Then He said unto her, “What do you desire? She said unto Him, “Say that these two, my sons, will sit, one on Your right, and one on Your left, in Malkuthak {Your Kingdom}.”

ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܫܐܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܫܬܐ ܟܣܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܥܬܝܕ ܠܡܫܬܐ ܐܘ ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܥܡܕ ܐܢܐ ܬܥܡܕܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ
22 Eshu {Y’shu} answered and said, “You don’t know what you are asking! Are you able to drink the cup that I am destined to drink, or the Immersion {the Baptism} that I am Immersed {Baptized}, will you be Immersed {Baptized}?” They said unto Him, “We are able.”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܣܝ ܬܫܬܘܢ ܘܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܥܡܕ ܐܢܐ ܬܥܡܕܘܢ ܕܬܬܒܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܝ ܘܡܢ ܣܡܠܝ ܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܕܝܠܝ ܕܐܬܠ ܐܠܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܛܝܒܬ ܡܢ ܐܒܝ
23 He said unto them, “You will drink Kasi {My Cup}, and the Immersion {Baptism} that I am Immersed {Baptized}, you will be Immersed {Baptized}, but that you may sit at my right, and at my left, isn’t mine to give, except unto those who have been destined by Abi {My Father}.”

ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܫܡܥܘ ܥܣܪܐ ܪܓܙܘ ܥܠ ܗܢܘܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܐܚܝܢ
24 Now, when the esra {the ten} heard of it, they were angry concerning those two brothers.

ܘܩܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܪܫܝܗܘܢ ܕܥܡܡܐ ܡܪܝܗܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܪܘܪܒܢܝܗܘܢ ܫܠܝܛܝܢ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ
25 And Eshu {Y’shu} called to them and said unto them, “You know that the Rishayhun {the Heads of the Amme {the Peoples/the Gentiles} are marayhun {their lords} and their Chiefs are rulers over them.

ܠܐ ܕܝܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܝܢܬܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܪܒܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܫܡܫܢܐ
26 But, it shall not be thus among you, but rather, whoever among you that might desire to be great, should be for you a mashamshana {a minister}.

ܘܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܥܒܕܐ
27 And he who among you desires that he should be the qadmaya {the first}, he should be for you an abda {a servant},

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܠܐ ܐܬܐ ܕܢܫܬܡܫ ܐܠܐ ܕܢܫܡܫ ܘܕܢܬܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܦܘܪܩܢܐ ܚܠܦ ܣܓܝܐܐ
28 just as The Son of Man didn’t come that He might be neshthama {served}, but rather, that He might nashame {serve}, and that He should give Naphsheh {His Soul/Himself} phurqana {a ransom} for many.”

ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܐܝܪܝܚܘ ܐܬܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܬܪܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ
29 And when Eshu {Y’shu} went out from Yrikhu {Jericho}, a large kensha {crowd} was coming after {i.e. following} Him.

ܘܗܐ ܣܡܝܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܝܬܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܥܒܪ ܝܗܒܘ ܩܠܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝܢ ܡܪܝ ܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ
30 And behold, two samaya {blind men} were sitting on the side of the road, and when they heard that Eshu {Y’shu} was passing by, they gave a cry out, and were saying “Ethrakham {Have mercy} upon us Mari {My Lord}, Son of David!”

ܟܢܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܐܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗܘܢ ܕܢܫܬܩܘܢ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܐܪܝܡܘ ܩܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܡܪܢ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝܢ ܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ
31 Now, the kenshe {the crowds} were rebuking them, so that they would be silent. And they raised their voice exceedingly, and were saying, “Maran {Our Lord} have mercy upon us, son of David!!”

ܘܩܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܩܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܥܒܕ ܠܟܘܢ
32 And Eshu {Y’shu} stood still {i.e. stopped}, and called them and said, “What do you want Me to do for you?”

ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܪܢ ܕܢܬܦܬܚܢ ܥܝܢܝܢ
33 They said unto Him. “Maran {Our Lord}, that our eyes may be opened.”

ܘܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܩܪܒ ܠܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܒܪܫܥܬܗ ܐܬܦܬܚ ܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ
34 And Eshu {Y’shu} had compassion on them and touched aynayhun {their eyes}, and at once {lit. in the son of an hour} aynayhun {their eyes} were opened, and they went after {followed} Him.

Chapter 21
ܘܟܕ ܩܪܒ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܒܝܬ ܦܓܐ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܛܘܪܐ ܕܙܝܬܐ ܫܕܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܬܪܝܢ ܡܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
1 And when He approached Urishlim {Jerusalem} and came unto Beth-Phage on the side of the Tura d’Zaythe {the Mount of Olives}, Eshu {Y’shu} sent two from His Disciples,

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܠܘ ܠܩܪܝܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܠܘܩܒܠܟܘܢ ܘܡܚܕܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܚܡܪܐ ܕܐܣܝܪܐ ܘܥܝܠܐ ܥܡܗ ܫܪܘ ܘܐܝܬܘ ܠܝ
2 and said unto them, “Go unto this qriytha {village} that is before {in front of} you, and immediately you will find a khamara {a donkey} that is bound, and an iyla {a colt} with her. Loose them and bring them unto Me.

ܘܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܐܡܪ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܕܠܡܪܢ ܡܬܒܥܝܢ ܘܡܚܕܐ ܡܫܕܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܟܐ
3 And if anyone says anything unto you, say unto him that Maran {Our Lord} asks for them, and mekhda {immediately} he will send them here.”

ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗ ܕܗܘܬ ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܒܝܕ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ
4 Now, this all happened so that the thing which was spoken through the Nabiya {the Prophet} might be fulfilled, who said,

ܐܡܪܘ ܠܒܪܬ ܨܗܝܘܢ ܗܐ ܡܠܟܟܝ ܐܬܐ ܠܟܝ ܡܟܝܟ ܘܪܟܝܒ ܥܠ ܚܡܪܐ ܘܥܠ ܥܝܠܐ ܒܪ ܐܬܢܐ
5 “Say unto the Daughter of Tsehyun {Zion}, ‘Behold, Your King comes unto you, humbly, and mounted upon a khamara {a donkey}, even upon an iyla {a colt}, the son of an athana {a female-donkey}.’”

ܘܐܙܠܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܥܒܕܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܦܩܕ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ
6 The Talmiyde {The Disciples} departed, and did as Eshu {Y’shu} had commanded them.

ܘܐܝܬܝܘ ܠܚܡܪܐ ܘܠܥܝܠܐ ܘܣܡܘ ܥܠ ܥܝܠܐ ܢܚܬܝܗܘܢ ܘܪܟܒ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܝܫܘܥ
7 And they brought the khamara {the donkey}, and the iyla {the colt}, and placed khathahun {their garments} upon the iyla {the colt}, and Eshu {Y’shu} rode upon it.

ܘܣܘܓܐܐ ܕܟܢܫܐ ܡܫܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܐܢܝܗܘܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܦܣܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܣܘܟܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܘܪܡܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ
8 And a large amount of the kenshe {the crowds} were spreading out manayhun {their clothes} in the urkha {the road}, but others were cutting suke {branches} from the iylane {the trees} and throwing them in urkha {the road}.

ܟܢܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܒܬܪܗ ܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܘܫܥܢܐ ܠܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܒܪܝܟ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܐ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܐܘܫܥܢܐ ܒܡܪܘܡܐ
9 Now, the kenshe {the crowds}, who were going before {in front of} Him, and coming after {behind} Him, were crying out, and saying, “Ushana {Hosanna} unto The Son of David! Blessed is He who comes in The Name of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}! Ushana {Hosanna} in the heights!”

ܘܟܕ ܥܠ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܐܬܬܙܝܥܬ ܟܠܗ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢܘ ܗܢܐ
10 And when He entered into Urishlim {Jerusalem}, all the madintha {the city} was stirred-up, and saying, “Who is this?”

ܟܢܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܗܢܘ ܝܫܘܥ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܡܢ ܢܨܪܬ ܕܓܠܝܠܐ
11 Then the kenshe {the crowds} were saying, “This is Eshu Nabiya {Y’shu, the Prophet} who is from Natsrath d’Galila {Nazareth of Galilee}.”

ܘܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܦܩ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܙܒܢܝܢ ܘܡܙܒܢܝܢ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܣܚܦ ܦܬܘܪܐ ܕܡܥܪܦܢܐ ܘܟܘܪܣܘܬܐ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܙܒܢܝܢ ܝܘܢܐ
12 And Eshu {Y’shu} entered into The Haykla d’Alaha {The Temple of God} and drove out all those who were buying and selling in The Haykla {The Temple}, and overturned the phathure d’marphane {the tables of the money-changers}, and kursutha {the chairs} of those who were selling yawne {doves}.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܬܝܒ ܗܘ ܕܒܝܬܝ ܒܝܬ ܨܠܘܬܐ ܢܬܩܪܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܥܒܕܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܡܥܪܬܐ ܕܠܣܛܝܐ
13 And He said unto them, “It is written that My House will be called The Beth Tslutha {The Prayer House}, but you have made it a martha d’lestaye {a cave of robbers}!”

ܘܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܣܡܝܐ ܘܚܓܝܣܐ ܘܐܣܝ ܐܢܘܢ
14 And the samaya {the blind} and the khagiyse {the lame} approached Him in The Haykla {The Temple}, and He healed them.

ܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܕܝܢ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܬܕܡܪܬܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܘܛܠܝܐ ܕܩܥܝܢ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܘܫܥܢܐ ܠܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܐܬܒܐܫ ܠܗܘܢ
15 But, when the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs} and the Phrishe {the Pharisees} saw the thedmartha {the miracles} which He did, and the talaye {the young boys} who were crying aloud in The Haykla {The Temple} and saying, “Ushana {Hosanna} unto The Son of David,” they were displeased!

ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܫܡܥ ܐܢܬ ܡܢܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܝܢ ܡܡܬܘܡ ܠܐ ܩܪܝܬܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܦܘܡܐ ܕܛܠܝܐ ܘܕܝܠܘܕܐ ܬܩܢܬ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ
16 And they were saying unto Him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “Yes! Have you never read that “from the mouth of talaye {young boys} and yalude {infant boys}, you have prepared praise?”

ܘܫܒܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܢܦܩ ܠܗ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܠܒܝܬ ܥܢܝܐ ܘܒܬ ܬܡܢ
17 And He left them, and He went outside of the madintha {the city}, unto Beth-Anya {Bethany}, and lodged there.

ܒܨܦܪܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܗܦܟ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܟܦܢ
18 Now, in the tsaphra {the morning} after He returned unto the madintha {the city}, He was hungry.

ܘܚܙܐ ܬܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚ ܒܗ ܡܕܡ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܛܪܦܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܒܟܝ ܬܘܒ ܦܐܪܐ ܠܥܠܡ ܘܡܚܕܐ ܝܒܫܬ ܬܬܐ ܗܝ
19 And He saw a certain thitha {fig tree} by the urkha {the road}, and having come to it, and didn’t find anything on it, except only tharphe {leaves}. And He said unto it, “There will never again be fruit on you! And at once, that thitha {fig tree} withered!

ܘܚܙܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܬܗܪܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܒܪܫܥܬܗ ܝܒܫܬ ܬܬܐ
20 And The Talmiyde {The Disciples} saw it and marveled and they were saying, “How fast {lit. in the son of an hour i.e. in minutes} the thitha {the fig tree} withered!”

ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܢ ܬܗܘܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܬܬܦܠܓܘܢ ܠܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܗܕܐ ܕܬܬܐ ܬܥܒܕܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܐܦܢ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܕܐܫܬܩܠ ܘܦܠ ܒܝܡܐ ܬܗܘܐ
21 Eshu {Y’shu} answered and said unto them, “Amyin {Truly} I say unto you, that if there be Haymanutha {Faith} in you, and you shall not doubt, not only will you do this thing of the fig tree, but even if you should say unto this tura {mountain/high hill} ‘Be removed and fall in the yama {the sea}’ It will happen!

ܘܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܬܫܐܠܘܢ ܒܨܠܘܬܐ ܘܬܗܝܡܢܘܢ ܬܣܒܘܢ
22 And every thing you might ask for in Tslutha {Prayer}, and shall believe, you will receive.”

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܥܡܐ ܟܕ ܡܠܦ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܫܘܠܛܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܘܡܢܘ ܝܗܒ ܠܟ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܗܢܐ
23 And when Eshu {Y’shu} came unto The Haykla {The Temple}, the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs} and the Qashishe d’Ama {the Elders of the People} drew near to Him while He was teaching, and they were saying unto Him, “B’ayna Shultan {By what Authority} do you these things? And who has given this Shultana {Authority} unto you?”

ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܫܐܠܟܘܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܘܐܢ ܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܝ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ
24 Eshu {Y’shu} answered and said unto them, “I also will ask you a certain matter, and if you answer Me, I will also tell you by what Shultana {Authority} I do these things.

ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܗ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܡܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܗܝ ܐܘ ܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܬܪܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܐܢ ܢܐܡܪ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܢ ܘܥܠ ܡܢܐ ܠܐ ܗܝܡܢܬܘܢܝܗܝ
25 Where is the Immersion {Baptism} of Yukhanan {John} from? Is it from the Shmaya {the Heavens}, or is it from the sons of men?” Then they were reasoning in naphshun {their soul}, and they were saying that, “If we say from the Shmaya {the Heavens}, he will say unto us, ‘Concerning what did you not believe him?’

ܘܕܢܐܡܪ ܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܚܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܟ ܢܒܝܐ ܐܚܝܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܠܝܘܚܢܢ
26 And if we should say ‘From the sons of men,’ we fear from the kenshe {the crowd}, for, they all hold Yukhanan {John} as a Nabiya {a Prophet}.

ܘܥܢܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ
27 And they answered and said unto Him, “We don’t know.” Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “I also am not telling you by what Shultana {Authority} I do these things.

ܡܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܒܢܝܐ ܬܪܝܢ ܘܩܪܒ ܠܘܬ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܒܪܝ ܙܠ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܦܠܘܚ ܒܟܪܡܐ
28 But, how does it appear to you? A certain gabra {man} had two sons. And he drew near to the first, and said unto him, “My son, go work today in the karma {the vineyard}.”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܒܚܪܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܬܘܝ ܘܐܙܠ
29 But, he answered and said, “I will not.” But later he repented, and went.

ܘܩܪܒ ܠܘܬ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܟܘܬ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܡܪܝ ܘܠܐ ܐܙܠ
30 And he drew near to the other, and he said likewise unto him, but, he answered and said, “I will My lord, and he didn’t go.

ܡܢܘ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܥܒܕ ܨܒܝܢܐ ܕܐܒܘܗܝ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܗܘ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܡܟܣܐ ܘܙܢܝܬܐ ܩܕܡܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
31 Who from these two did the will of his father?” They said unto Him, “that first one.” Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “Amiyn {Truly} I say unto you that the Makse {the Tax-Collectors} and the Zanyatha {the Harlots} will go before you unto The Malkutha d’Alaha {The Kingdom of God}.

ܐܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܗܝܡܢܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܡܟܣܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܙܢܝܬܐ ܗܝܡܢܘܗܝ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܟܕ ܚܙܝܬܘܢ ܐܬܬܘܝܬܘܢ ܒܚܪܬܐ ܕܬܗܝܡܢܘܢ ܒܗ
32 For, Yukhanan {John} came to you in The Urkha d’Kenutha {The Way of Righteousness/Justice}, and you didn’t believe him. But, the Makse {the Tax-Collectors} and the Zaniyatha {the Harlots} believed him. But, you didn’t repent even when you saw it, so that finally {lit. in the end} you might believe in him.

ܫܡܥܘ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܡܬܠܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܡܪܐ ܒܝܬܐ ܘܢܨܒ ܟܪܡܐ ܘܐܚܕܪܗ ܣܝܓܐ ܘܚܦܪ ܒܗ ܡܥܨܪܬܐ ܘܒܢܐ ܒܗ ܡܓܕܠܐ ܘܐܘܚܕܗ ܠܦܠܚܐ ܘܚܙܩ
33 Hear another Mathla {Parable}. There was a certain Gabra {Man}, a House-Lord, and He planted a Karma {a Vineyard} and fenced around it, and dug a winepress in it. And He built a tower in it, and He let it out unto phalakhe {laborers}, and journeyed.

ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܡܛܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܕܦܐܪܐ ܫܕܪ ܠܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܠܘܬ ܦܠܚܐ ܕܢܫܕܪܘܢ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܦܐܪܐ ܕܟܪܡܗ
34 Then, when the zabna d’phire {the time/season of fruits} arrived, He sent His servants to the phalakhe {the laborers}, so that they might send unto Him some from the fruits of His Vineyard.

ܘܐܚܕܘ ܦܠܚܐ ܠܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܡܚܐܘܗܝ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܪܓܡܘܗܝ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܩܛܠܘܗܝ
35 And the phalakhe {the laborers} seized His servants, and some they beat, and some they stoned, and some they killed.

ܘܬܘܒ ܫܕܪ ܥܒܕܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܣܓܝܐܝܢ ܡܢ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܘܗܟܘܬ ܥܒܕܘ ܠܗܘܢ
36 And again He sent other servants that were more than the first, and they did likewise unto them.

ܐܚܪܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܫܕܪ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܠܒܪܗ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܟܒܪ ܢܒܗܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܒܪܝ
37 Then lastly, He sent His Son unto them, while saying ‘Perhaps they might be ashamed from My Son.

ܦܠܚܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܠܒܪܐ ܐܡܪܘ ܒܝܢܬܗܘܢ ܗܢܘ ܝܪܬܐ ܬܘ ܢܩܛܠܝܘܗܝ ܘܢܐܚܘܕ ܝܪܬܘܬܗ
38 But, when the phalakhe {the laborers} saw The Son, they said among themselves, “This is The Yartha {The Heir}. Come, let us kill him and take yarthutheh {his inheritance}.”

ܘܐܚܕ ܐܦܩܘܗܝ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܟܪܡܐ ܘܩܛܠܘܗܝ
39 And they seized Him and cast Him outside of the Karma {the Vineyard}, and killed Him.

ܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܪܗ ܕܟܪܡܐ ܡܢܐ ܢܥܒܕ ܠܦܠܚܐ ܗܢܘܢ
40 Therefore, when The Mareh d’Karma {The Lord of the Vineyard} comes, what should He do unto those phalakhe {laborers}?”

ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܕܒܝܫ ܒܝܫ ܢܘܒܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܟܪܡܐ ܢܘܚܕ ܠܐܚܪܢܐ ܦܠܚܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܗܒܝܢ ܠܗ ܦܐܪܐ ܒܙܒܢܗܘܢ
41 They were saying unto Him, “He will severely destroy them, and he will entrust the Vineyard to other phalakhe {laborers}; those who will give unto him the fruits in its season.”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐ ܡܢ ܡܬܘܡ ܩܪܝܬܘܢ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܕܟܐܦܐ ܕܐܣܠܝܘ ܒܢܝܐ ܗܝ ܗܘܬ ܠܪܫܐ ܕܙܘܝܬܐ ܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܡܪܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܗܕܐ ܘܐܝܬܝܗ ܬܕܡܘܪܬܐ ܒܥܝܢܝܢ
42 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “Have you never read in The Kathaba {The Scripture} of ‘The Kepha {The Rock} which the builders rejected, the same has become The Head of the corner; this is from The Presence of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} and is thedmurtha {wondrous/miraculous} in our eyes?’

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܬܫܬܩܠ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܬܬܝܗܒ ܠܥܡܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܦܐܪܐ
43 Because of this, I say unto you that, The Malkutha d’Alaha {The Kingdom of God} will be taken from you, and will be given unto a people who produce phire {fruits}.

ܘܡܢ ܕܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܟܐܦܐ ܗܕܐ ܢܬܪܥܥ ܘܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܗܝ ܬܦܠ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܬܕܪܝܘܗܝ
44 And whoever might fall upon this Kepha {Rock}, will be broken, and all whom it will fall upon, will be scattered.”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܡܬܠܘܗܝ ܝܕܥܘ ܕܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܡܪ
45 And when the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs} and the Phrishe {the Pharisees} heard His Parables, they knew that He had spoken about them.

ܘܒܥܘ ܠܡܐܚܕܗ ܘܕܚܠܘ ܡܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܝܟ ܕܠܢܒܝܐ ܐܚܝܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
46 And they sought to seize Him, and they were afraid because of the kensha {the crowd}, as they were holding Him to be a Nabiya {a Prophet}.

Chapter 22
ܘܥܢܐ ܬܘܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܡܬܠܐ ܘܐܡܪ
1 And Eshu {Y’shu} answered again in Mathle {Parables}, and said,

ܐܬܕܡܝܬ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܥܒܕ ܡܫܬܘܬܐ ܠܒܪܗ
2 “The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens} is likened unto a Gabra {a Man}, a Malka {a King}, who prepared a Meshthutha {a Banquet} for His Son.

ܘܫܕܪ ܠܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܕܢܩܪܘܢ ܠܡܙܡܢܐ ܠܡܫܬܘܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܨܒܘ ܠܡܐܬܐ
3 And He sent His servants, so that they might call the mazamane {the invited ones} unto The Meshthutha {The Banquet}, and they didn’t want to come.

ܘܬܘܒ ܫܕܪ ܥܒܕܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܡܙܡܢܐ ܕܗܐ ܫܪܘܬܝ ܡܛܝܒܐ ܘܬܘܪܝ ܘܡܦܛܡܝ ܩܛܝܠܝܢ ܘܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܡܛܝܒ ܬܘ ܠܡܫܬܘܬܐ
4 And again He sent other servants, and said, “Say unto the mazamane {the invited ones} that, ‘Behold, Sharuthi {My meal} is ready, and thuray {my oxen}, and my fatlings are killed, and every thing is ready. Come unto The Meshthutha {The Banquet}!’

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܣܘ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܐܝܬ ܕܠܩܪܝܬܗ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܠܬܐܓܘܪܬܗ
5 But, they despised it. And some departed unto qritheh {his field}, and some unto thegurtheh {his merchandise/business}.

ܫܪܟܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܚܕܘ ܠܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܘܨܥܪܘ ܘܩܛܠܘ
6 But the rest seized His servants, and afflicted them, and killed them.

ܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܕܝܢ ܡܠܟܐ ܪܓܙ ܘܫܕܪ ܚܝܠܘܬܗ ܐܘܒܕ ܠܩܛܘܠܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܠܡܕܝܢܬܗܘܢ ܐܘܩܕ
7 Now, when The Malka {The King} heard it, He was angry, and sent khaylutheh {His forces/armies} and destroyed those qatule {murderers}, and burned their city.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܡܫܬܘܬܐ ܡܛܝܒܐ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܙܡܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐ ܫܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ
8 Then He said unto His servants, ‘The Meshthutha {The Banquet} is ready, and those who were invited were not worthy.

ܙܠܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܠܡܦܩܢܐ ܕܐܘܪܚܬܐ ܘܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܩܪܘ ܠܡܫܬܘܬܐ
9 Go therefore unto the exits of the roads, and all who you find, you are to call them unto The Meshthutha {The Banquet}.’

ܘܢܦܩܘ ܥܒܕܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܠܐܘܪܚܬܐ ܘܟܢܫܘ ܟܠ ܕܐܫܟܚܘ ܒܝܫܐ ܘܛܒܐ ܘܐܬܡܠܝ ܒܝܬ ܡܫܬܘܬܐ ܣܡܝܟܐ
10 And those servants went out unto the roads, and gathered all whom they found, bishe {evil ones} and tabe {good ones}, and His Beth Meshthutha {Banquet-House} was filled with smiyke {quests}.

ܘܥܠ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܣܡܝܟܐ ܘܚܙܐ ܬܡܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܠܐ ܠܒܝܫ ܠܒܘܫܐ ܕܡܫܬܘܬܐ
11 And The King entered to see the smiyke {the guests}, and saw a gabra {a man} there who wasn’t wearing the bushe d’Meshthutha {the clothing of The Banquet}.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܚܒܪܝ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܥܠܬ ܠܟܐ ܟܕ ܢܚܬܐ ܕܡܫܬܘܬܐ ܠܝܬ ܠܟ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܫܬܬܩ
12 And He said unto him, ‘Khabri {My comrade}, how did you enter here when you don’t have nakhthe d’Meshthutha {the garments of The Banquet?’ But he was silent.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܡܠܟܐ ܠܡܫܡܫܢܐ ܐܣܘܪܘ ܐܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܘܐܦܩܘܗܝ ܠܚܫܘܟܐ ܒܪܝܐ ܬܡܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܟܝܐ ܘܚܘܪܩ ܫܢܐ
13 Then The King said unto the Mashamshane {the Ministers}, ‘Bind his hands and his feet, and cast him into the kheshuka baraya {the outer darkness}. There will be weeping and teeth gnashing!’

ܣܓܝܐܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܩܪܝܐ ܘܙܥܘܪܝܢ ܓܒܝܐ
14 For, many are qraya {the called ones}, and few are gabaya {the chosen ones}.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܙܠܘ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܢܣܒܘ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܐܝܟܢܐ ܢܨܘܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܒܡܠܬܐ
15 Then the Phrishe {the Pharisees} departed and took counsel how that they might catch Him in a word {i.e. cause Him to incriminate Himself}.

ܘܫܕܪܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܬܠܡܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܥܡ ܕܒܝܬ ܗܪܘܕܣ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܫܪܝܪ ܐܢܬ ܘܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܩܘܫܬܐ ܡܠܦ ܐܢܬ ܘܠܐ ܫܩܝܠ ܐܢܬ ܨܦܬܐ ܠܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܢܣܒ ܐܢܬ ܒܐܦܐ ܕܐܢܫܐ
16 And they sent their disciples with the beth Herudes {the house of Herod i.e. the Herodians} to Him. And they were saying unto Him, “Malphana {Teacher}, we know that you are true, and you teach the urkha d’Alaha {the way of God} in truth, and you don’t carry concern for any one, for, you don’t accept the persons of mankind.

ܐܡܪ ܠܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܠܟ ܫܠܝܛ ܠܡܬܠ ܟܣܦ ܪܫܐ ܠܩܣܪ ܐܘ ܠܐ
17 Therefore, tell us, how does it appear to you? Is it lawful to give the head-silver {the tribute-tax i.e. poll taxes} unto Qasar {Caesar}, or not?”

ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܒܝܫܘܬܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢܐ ܡܢܣܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܢܣܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ
18 But, Eshu {Y’shu} knew their evil, and said, “Why do you tempt Me, you hypocrites {lit. face takers}!

ܚܘܐܘܢܝ ܕܝܢܪܐ ܕܟܣܦ ܪܫܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܠܗ ܕܝܢܪܐ
19 Show Me the dinara {the denarius}, which is the head-silver
​{tribute-tax}.” Then they brought the dinara {the denarius} unto Him.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܡܢܘ ܨܠܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܟܬܒܐ
20 And Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “Whose image is this, and inscription?”

ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܩܣܪ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܒܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܩܣܪ ܠܩܣܪ ܘܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ
21 They were saying, “Of Qasar {Caesar}.” He said unto them, “Give therefore the things of Qasar, unto Qasar, and the things of Alaha {God}, unto Alaha.”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܐܬܕܡܪܘ ܘܫܒܩܘܗܝ ܘܐܙܠܘ
22 And when they heard it, they were amazed, and left Him and departed.

ܒܗܘ ܝܘܡܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܙܕܘܩܝܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܝܬ ܚܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܫܐܠܘܗܝ
23 On that day, the Zaduqaye {the Sadducees} approached, and they were saying unto Him, “The dead don’t resurrect.” And they asked Him,

ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܢ ܕܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܢܡܘܬ ܟܕ ܠܝܬ ܠܗ ܒܢܝܐ ܢܣܒ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܘܢܩܝܡ ܙܪܥܐ ܠܐܚܘܗܝ
24 and said unto Him, “Malphna {Teacher}, Mushe {Moses} said unto us that if a man might die while having no sons, his brother should take {marry} his wife, and should raise up seed {offspring} for his brother.

ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܘܬܢ ܐܚܐ ܫܒܥܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܢܣܒ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܘܡܝܬ ܘܕܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܒܢܝܐ ܫܒܩܗ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܠܐܚܘܗܝ
25 Now, there were among us seven brothers. The first took an anttha {a wife}, and died, and because he had no {lit. there was not for him} sons, he left anttheh {his wife} unto his brother.

ܗܟܘܬ ܐܦ ܗܘ ܕܬܪܝܢ ܐܦ ܗܘ ܕܬܠܬܐ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܒܥܬܝܗܘܢ
26 Likewise also that one who was second, also that one who was third, and up unto the seventh one.

ܒܚܪܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܡܝܬܬ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܬܐ
27 Then, after them all, the anttha {the wife} also died.

ܒܩܝܡܬܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܠܐܝܢܐ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܫܒܥܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܢܣܒܘܗ
28 In The Resurrection, therefore, unto whom from these seven will she be an anttha {a wife}? For, they all took {married} her?”

ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܛܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܟܬܒܐ ܘܠܐ ܚܝܠܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
29 Eshu {Y’shu} answered and said unto them, “You err, because you don’t know The Kathabe {The Scriptures} and neither the power of Alaha {God}.

ܒܩܝܡܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܝܬܐ ܠܐ ܢܣܒܝܢ ܢܫܐ ܐܦܠܐ ܢܫܐ ܗܘܝܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ
30 For, in The Qayamtha {The Resurrection} of the dead, they don’t marry women, nor are women for husbands, but rather, they are as the Malake d’Alaha {The Heavenly Messengers of God} in the Shmaya {the Heavens}.

ܥܠ ܩܝܡܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܝܬܐ ܠܐ ܩܪܝܬܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܡܪ
31 But, concerning The Qayamtha {The Resurrection} of the dead, have you not read the thing which was said unto you by Alaha {God}, who said

ܕܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܗܗ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܐܠܗܗ ܕܐܝܣܚܩ ܐܠܗܗ ܕܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܡܝܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܚܝܐ
32 that “I AM The God of Abraham, The God of Iskhaq {Isaac}, The God of Yaqub {Jacob}?” And, Alaha {God} is not of the dead ones, but rather, of the living ones!”

ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܟܢܫܐ ܡܬܬܡܗܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܝܘܠܦܢܗ
33 And when the crowds heard this, they were amazed at His Teaching.

ܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܕܫܬܩ ܠܙܕܘܩܝܐ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܐܟܚܕܐ
34 But, when the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they assembled together.

ܘܫܐܠܗ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܝܕܥ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܟܕ ܡܢܣܐ ܠܗ
35 And one from them who knew The Namusa {The Law} asked, testing Him,

ܡܠܦܢܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܪܒ ܒܢܡܘܣܐ
36 “Malphana {Teacher}, which commandment in The Namusa {The Law} is the greatest?”

ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܕܬܪܚܡ ܠܡܪܝܐ ܐܠܗܟ ܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܠܒܟ ܘܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܢܦܫܟ ܘܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܚܝܠܟ ܘܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܪܥܝܢܟ
37 Then Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, that ‘You shall love MarYa Alahak {The Lord-YHWH, Your God} with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind.’

ܗܢܘ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܘܩܕܡܝܐ
38 This is the greatest commandment, and the first.

ܘܕܬܪܝܢ ܕܕܡܐ ܠܗ ܕܬܪܚܡ ܠܩܪܝܒܟ ܐܝܟ ܢܦܫܟ
39 And the second is like it. That ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’

ܒܗܠܝܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܬܠܝܐ ܐܘܪܝܬܐ ܘܢܒܝܐ
40 On these two commandments hang The Uraytha {The Law/The Torah} and The Nabiye {The Prophets}.”

ܟܕ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܫܐܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ
41 Now, while the Pharisees were assembled, Eshu {Y’shu} asked them,

ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܠ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܪ ܡܢܘ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܒܪ ܕܘܝܕ
42 and said, “What do you say about Meshikha {The Anointed One}? Whose Son is He?” They were saying unto Him, “The Son of David.”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܘܝܕ ܒܪܘܚ ܩܪܐ ܠܗ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܓܝܪ
43 He said unto them, “And how does David, through The Spirit, call Him ‘MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}?’ For, he said

ܕܐܡܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܠܡܪܝ ܕܬܒ ܠܟ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܝ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܣܝܡ ܒܥܠܕܒܒܝܟ ܬܚܝܬ ܪܓܠܝܟ
44 that ‘MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} said unto Mari {My Lord}, that You must sit at My right, until I place Your enemies under Your feet.’ ”

ܐܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܘܝܕ ܩܪܐ ܠܗ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܒܪܗ ܗܘ
45 If therefore, David calls Him MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, how is He his Son?”

ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܫܟܚ ܕܢܬܠ ܠܗ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܡܪܚ ܬܘܒ ܡܢ ܗܘ ܝܘܡܐ ܠܡܫܐܠܘܬܗ
46 And no one was able to give Him an answer. And no one dared again, from that day, to question Him.

Chapter 23
ܗܝܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܠܠ ܥܡ ܟܢܫܐ ܘܥܡ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
1 Then Eshu {Y’shu} spoke with the kenshe {the crowds}, and with His Disciples.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܠ ܟܘܪܣܝܐ ܕܡܘܫܐ ܝܬܒܘ ܣܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ
2 And He said unto them, “The Saphre {The Scribes} and the Phrishe {the Pharisees} sit on The Kursya d’Mushe {The Chair of Moses}.

ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܬܛܪܘܢ ܛܪܘ ܘܥܒܕܘ ܐܝܟ ܥܒܕܝܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܬܥܒܕܘܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܘܠܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ
3 Every thing, therefore, that they should say unto you that you shall observe, you must observe and do. But, not according to their deeds, for, they say, and don’t do.

ܘܐܣܪܝܢ ܡܘܒܠܐ ܝܩܝܪܬܐ ܘܣܝܡܝܢ ܥܠ ܟܬܦܬܐ ܕܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܨܒܥܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܕܢܩܪܒܘܢ ܠܗܝܢ
4 And they bind heavy burdens and place them upon the shoulders of the sons of men, but, they don’t want to touch them with their fingers.

ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܒܕܝܗܘܢ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܕܢܬܚܙܘܢ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܡܦܬܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܬܦܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܡܘܪܟܝܢ ܬܟܠܬܐ ܕܡܪܛܘܛܝܗܘܢ
5 And they do all their deeds, so that they might be seen by the sons of men. For, they widen Thephlayhun {their Tefillin/Phylacteries}, and lengthen the Theklatha {Tzitzits/fringes} of martutayhun {their cloaks/robes}.

ܘܪܚܡܝܢ ܪܫ ܣܡܟܐ ܒܚܫܡܝܬܐ ܘܪܫ ܡܘܬܒܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ
6 And they love the chief reclining places at The Khashamaytha {The Suppers}, and the chief seats in The Kenushatha {The Assemblies/The Synagogues}.

ܘܫܠܡܐ ܒܫܘܩܐ ܘܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܡܬܩܪܝܢ ܡܢ ܐܢܫ ܪܒܝ
7 And a greeting in the shuqe {the marketplaces}, and to be called of men, Rabi {My Master}.

ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܬܬܩܪܘܢ ܪܒܝ ܚܕ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܪܒܟܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܐܚܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ
8 But, you shall not be called Rabi, for one is Rabkun {your Master}, but you, you are all akhe {brothers}.

ܘܐܒܐ ܠܐ ܬܩܪܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܚܕ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
9 And don’t call yourself aba {father} in the Ara {the Earth}, for one is Abukun {Your Father}, who is in the Shmaya {the Heavens}.

ܘܠܐ ܬܬܩܪܘܢ ܡܕܒܪܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܚܕ ܗܘ ܡܕܒܪܢܟܘܢ ܡܫܝܚܐ
10 And don’t be called Madabrane {Leaders/Rulers}, because One is Madabrankun {Your Leader/Ruler}; Meshikha {The Anointed One}.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܪܒ ܒܟܘܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܫܡܫܢܐ
11 But, he who is greatest among you, he shall be for you a mashamshana {a minister/servant}.

ܡܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܪܝܡ ܢܦܫܗ ܢܬܡܟܟ ܘܡܢ ܕܢܡܟ ܢܦܫܗ ܢܬܬܪܝܡ
12 For, whoever exalts his soul {himself}, will be humbled, and whoever humbles his soul {himself}, will be exalted.

13 Woe unto you, Saphre {Scribes}, and Phrishe {Pharisees}, Nasbay Baphe {Hypocrites}! You who consume the houses of the armalatha {the widows}, and that for a pretense you lengthen Tsluthkun {your Prayers}. Because of this, you will receive a greater judgment!

14 Woe unto you, Saphre {Scribes} and Phrishe {Pharisees}, Nasbay Baphe {Hypocrites}! Because you close The Kingdom of the Heavens before the sons of men, for, you are not entering yourselves, and those who are entering, you don’t allow them to enter.

ܘܝ ܠܟܘܢ ܣܦܪܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܢܣܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܕܡܬܟܪܟܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܡܐ ܘܝܒܫܐ ܕܬܥܒܕܘܢ ܚܕ ܓܝܘܪܐ ܘܡܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ ܒܪܗ ܕܓܗܢܐ ܐܥܦܐ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ
15 Woe unto you, Saphre {Scribes} and Phrishe {Pharisees}, Nasbay Baphe {Hypocrites}! Because you traverse the sea and land, so that you might make one Giyura {Proselyte}, and when he becomes one, you make him double the son of Gihana {Gehenna} that you are.

ܘܝ ܠܟܘܢ ܢܓܘܕܐ ܣܡܝܐ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܕܝܡܐ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܕܡ ܡܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܡܐ ܒܕܗܒܐ ܕܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܚܐܒ
16 Woe unto you blind guides, because you say that the one who swears by The Temple, it isn’t anything, but, the one who swears by the gold that is in The Temple, is guilty.

ܣܟܠܐ ܘܣܡܝܐ ܡܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܪܒ ܕܗܒܐ ܐܘ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܕܗܘ ܡܩܕܫ ܠܗ ܠܕܗܒܐ
17 Foolish and blind ones, for, what is greater, the dahba {the gold}, or The Haykla {The Temple} that is sanctifying the dahba {the gold}?

ܘܡܢ ܕܝܡܐ ܒܡܕܒܚܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܕܡ ܡܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܡܐ ܒܩܘܪܒܢܐ ܕܠܥܠ ܡܢܗ ܚܐܒ
18 And the one who swears by The Madbakha {The Altar}, it isn’t anything, but, the one who swears by The Qurbana {The Offering} that is upon it, is guilty.

ܣܟܠܐ ܘܥܘܝܪܐ ܡܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܪܒ ܩܘܪܒܢܐ ܐܘ ܡܕܒܚܐ ܕܡܩܕܫ ܠܩܘܪܒܢܐ

ܡܢ ܕܝܡܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܒܡܕܒܚܐ ܝܡܐ ܒܗ ܘܒܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܥܠ ܡܢܗ
20 Therefore, the one who swears by The Madbakha {The Altar}, swears by it, and all that is on it.

ܘܡܢ ܕܝܡܐ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܝܡܐ ܒܗ ܘܒܡܢ ܕܥܡܪ ܒܗ
21 And the one who swears by The Haykla {The Temple}, swears by it, and by The One who is dwelling in it.

ܘܡܢ ܕܝܡܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܝܡܐ ܒܟܘܪܣܝܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܡܢ ܕܝܬܒ ܠܥܠ ܡܢܗ
22 And the one who swears by The Shmaya {The Heavens}, swears by The Throne of Alaha {God}, and by The One who is sitting on it.

23 Woe unto you, Saphre {Scribes} and Phrishe {Pharisees}, Nasbay Baphe {Hypocrites}! Because you tithe nan {mint}, and shabetha {dill}, and kamuna {cumin}, and you forget the more important things of The Namusa {The Law}: Diyna {Judgment}, and Khanana {Mercy}, and Haymanutha {Faith}. Now, these things were proper that you should have done them, and these things you shouldn’t have forgotten.

ܢܓܘܕܐ ܣܡܝܐ ܕܡܨܠܠܝܢ ܒܩܐ ܘܒܠܥܝܢ ܓܡܠܐ

25 Woe unto you, Saphre {Scribes} and Phrishe {Pharisees}, Nasbay Baphe {Hypocrites}! Because you cleanse the outside of the kasa {the cup}, and of the zabura {the dish}, but within they are full of extortion and iniquity.

ܦܪܝܫܐ ܥܘܝܪܐ ܕܟܘ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܓܘܗ ܕܟܣܐ ܘܕܙܒܘܪܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܐܦ ܒܪܗܘܢ ܕܟܐ
26 Phrishe wiyre {lit. half blinded Pharisees}! First cleanse the inside of the cup, and of the dish, then the outside will be clean also.

27 Woe unto you, Saphre {Scribes} and Phrishe {Pharisees}, Nasbay Baphe {Hypocrites}! Because you are like whitewashed tombs, which appear beautiful from the outside, but from within are full of the bones of the dead, and all uncleanness.

ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܠܒܪ ܡܬܚܙܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܙܕܝܩܐ ܘܡܢ ܠܓܘ ܡܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܘܠܐ ܘܡܣܒ ܒܐܦܐ
28 Likewise you also appear from the outside as righteous unto the sons of men, and from within you are filled with iniquity and hypocrisy!

29 Woe unto you, Saphre {Scribes} and Phrishe {Pharisees}, Nasbay Baphe {Hypocrites}! Because you build the qabre d’Nabiye {the tombs of the Prophets} and you adorn the beth qabure d’Zadiyqe {the tomb houses of the Righteous}.

ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܠܘ ܗܘܝܢ ܒܝܘܡܝ ܐܒܗܝܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܘܬܦܐ ܒܕܡܐ ܕܢܒܝܐ
30 And you say that ‘if we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been participants with them in the blood of the Nabiye {the Prophets}.’

ܡܕܝܢ ܡܣܗܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܕܒܢܝܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܕܩܛܠܘ ܠܢܒܝܐ
31 Therefore you testify against your souls {yourselves} that you are the sons of those who killed the Nabiye {the Prophets}.

ܘܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܠܘ ܡܫܘܚܬܐ ܕܐܒܗܝܟܘܢ
32 And you also fill up the measure of your fathers.

ܚܘܘܬܐ ܝܠܕܐ ܕܐܟܕܢܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܬܥܪܩܘܢ ܡܢ ܕܝܢܐ ܕܓܗܢܐ
33 Khuwatha {Serpents}! Offspring of akedne {vipers}! How will you flee from The Judgment of Gihana {Gehenna}?

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܗܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܫܕܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܘܚܟܝܡܐ ܘܣܦܪܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܩܛܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܙܩܦܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܢܓܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܟܘܢ ܘܬܪܕܦܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܐ ܠܡܕܝܢܐ
34 Behold, because of this, I am sending unto you Nabiye {Prophets}, and Khakiyme {Wise-men}, and Saphre {Scribes}. Some from them you will kill and you will crucify them, and some from them you will scourge in Kenushathkun {your Synagogues/Assemblies}. And you will pursue them from city to city,

35 so that all the blood of The Zadiyke {The Righteous Ones} that was poured out upon the earth, will come upon you, from the blood of Righteous Abel, and up to the blood of Zakarya {Zechariah}, the son of Barakya {Barachiah}, whom you killed between The Haykla {The Temple} and {The Madbakha {The Altar}!

ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܢܐܬܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܥܠ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܗܕܐ

37 Urishlim! Urishlim! {Jerusalem! Jerusalem}! You kill the Prophets, and stone those who are sent unto you, how many times I have desired to gather your sons {i.e. children}, as a tharnagultha {a hen} gathers her chicks under her wings, and you didn’t want it.

ܗܐ ܡܫܬܒܩ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܝܬܟܘܢ ܚܪܒܐ
38 Behold! Your house is left unto you desolate.

ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܐ ܬܚܙܘܢܢܝ ܡܢ ܗܫܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܒܪܝܟ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܐ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ
39 For, I say unto you, that you will not see Me from now on, until you shall say, “Blessed is He who comes in The Name of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}.”

Chapter 24
ܘܢܦܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܠܡܐܙܠ ܘܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܡܚܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܒܢܝܢܗ ܕܗܝܟܠܐ
1 And Eshu {Y’shu} departed from The Haykla {The Temple} to go away, and His Disciples approached and were showing Him the construction of The Haykla {The Temple}.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܗܐ ܚܙܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܬܫܬܒܩ ܗܪܟܐ ܟܐܦ ܥܠ ܟܐܦ ܕܠܐ ܬܣܬܬܪ
2 Then He said unto them, “Behold! Don’t you see all these stones? Amiyn {Truly} I say unto you, that no stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down!”

ܘܟܕ ܝܬܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܥܠ ܛܘܪܐ ܕܙܝܬܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܒܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܠܗ ܐܡܪ ܠܢ ܐܡܬܝ ܗܠܝܢ ܢܗܘܝܢ ܘܡܢܐ ܗܝ ܐܬܐ ܕܡܐܬܝܬܟ ܘܕܫܘܠܡܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ
3 And while Eshu {Y’shu} sat upon the Tura d’Zaythe {the Mount of Olives}, His Disciples approached and were saying among themselves, and unto Him, “Tell us when these things will be, and what is the sign of Your coming, and the end of the world.”

ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܢܛܥܝܟܘܢ
4 Eshu {Y’shu} answered and said unto them, “Beware, don’t let anyone deceive you.

ܣܓܝܐܐ ܓܝܪ ܢܐܬܘܢ ܒܫܡܝ ܘܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܕܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܣܓܝܐܐ ܢܛܥܘܢ
5 For, many will come in My Name, and will affirm that “ENA NA Meshikha {I AM, The Anointed One},” and they will deceive many.

ܥܬܝܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܡܫܡܥ ܩܐܪܣܐ ܘܫܡܥܐ ܕܩܪܒܐ ܚܙܘ ܠܐ ܬܬܕܘܕܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܟܠܗܝܢ ܢܗܘܝܢ ܐܠܐ ܠܐ ܥܕܟܝܠ ܫܘܠܡܐ
6 But, you are destined to hear of battles and reports of wars. See that you are not disturbed, for, it is necessary that all these things should happen, but, it isn’t yet the shulama {the end}.

ܢܩܘܡ ܓܝܪ ܥܡܐ ܥܠ ܥܡܐ ܘܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܥܠ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܘܢܗܘܘܢ ܟܦܢܐ ܘܡܘܬܢܐ ܘܙܘܥܐ ܒܕܘܟܐ ܕܘܟܐ
7 For, Ama {Nation/People} will rise against Ama {Nation/People}, and Malkutha {Kingdom} against Malkutha {Kingdom}, and there will be kaphne {famines} and methane {plagues} and zawe {earthquakes} in various places.

ܗܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܪܫܐ ܐܢܝܢ ܕܚܒܠܐ
8 But, all these things are the beginning of sorrows.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܫܠܡܘܢܟܘܢ ܠܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܘܢܩܛܠܘܢܟܘܢ ܘܬܗܘܘܢ ܣܢܝܐܝܢ ܡܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܡܛܠ ܫܡܝ
9 Then they will deliver you unto afflictions, and they will kill you, and you will be hated by all Nations because of My Name.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܬܟܫܠܘܢ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܘܢܣܢܘܢ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ ܘܢܫܠܡܘܢ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ
10 Then, many will stumble {be offended or fall away} and will hate each other and will betray each other.

ܘܣܓܝܐܐ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܓܠܐ ܢܩܘܡܘܢ ܘܢܛܥܘܢ ܠܣܓܝܐܐ
11 And many nabiye nagale {lying/false prophets} will arise and they will deceive many.

ܘܡܛܠ ܣܓܝܐܘܬ ܥܘܠܐ ܢܦܘܓ ܚܘܒܐ ܕܣܓܝܐܐ
12 And because of the abundance of iniquity, the love of many will become cold.

ܡܢ ܕܡܣܝܒܪ ܕܝܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܚܪܬܐ ܗܘ ܢܚܐ
13 But, the one who endures until the end, he will have life.

ܘܬܬܟܪܙ ܗܕܐ ܣܒܪܬܐ ܕܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܥܠܡܐ ܠܣܗܕܘܬܐ ܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܐܬܐ ܫܘܠܡܐ
14 And this Sabartha d’Malkutha {Hopeful Message of The Kingdom} will be Proclaimed in all the world for a testimony unto all the Amme {the Peoples/the Nations}, and then the shulama {the end} will come.

ܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܚܙܝܬܘܢ ܐܬܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܕܚܘܪܒܐ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܒܕܢܝܐܝܠ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܩܝܡܐ ܒܕܘܟܬܐ ܩܕܝܫܬܐ ܗܘ ܕܩܪܐ ܢܣܬܟܠ
15 Now, when you have seen the unclean sign of desolation that was spoken by DanyIyl Nabiya {Daniel, the Prophet}, that stands in The Duktha Qadisha {The Holy Place}, (he who reads will understand),

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܝܗܘܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܢܥܪܩܘܢ ܠܛܘܪܐ
16 then those who are in Yehud {Judea} should flee unto the Tura {the Mountain}.

ܘܗܘ ܕܒܐܓܪܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܢܚܘܬ ܠܡܣܒ ܕܒܒܝܬܗ
17 And he who is on the rooftop, should not come down to take his house {i.e. household items/possessions}.

ܘܐܝܢܐ ܕܒܚܩܠܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܢܬܗܦܟ ܠܒܣܬܪܗ ܠܡܣܒ ܠܒܫܗ
18 And he who is in the field, should not return back to take his clothes.

ܘܝ ܕܝܢ ܠܒܛܢܬܐ ܘܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܝܢܩܢ ܒܗܢܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ
19 But woe unto the pregnant ones, and unto those who are sucking {i.e. babies who are feeding/nursing} in those days.

ܨܠܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܥܪܘܩܝܟܘܢ ܒܣܬܘܐ ܘܠܐ ܒܫܒܬܐ
20 But pray that your flight {travel} will not be during sathua {winter}, and not during The Shabtha {The Sabbath}.

ܢܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܪܫܝܬܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܫܐ ܘܠܐ ܢܗܘܐ
21 For then will be ultsana raba {great tribulation}, which hasn’t been from the beginning of the world until now, and neither will be.

ܘܐܠܘ ܠܐ ܐܬܟܪܝܘ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܠܐ ܚܝܐ ܗܘܐ ܟܠ ܒܣܪ ܡܛܠ ܓܒܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܢܬܟܪܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ
22 And if those days were not shortened, not any flesh would live, but, on account of The Gabaya {The Elect/The Chosen Ones}, those days will be shortened.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܢܐܡܪ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܐ ܗܪܟܐ ܗܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܘ ܗܪܟܐ ܠܐ ܬܗܝܡܢܘܢ
23 Then, if anyone might say unto you, Look! Here is Meshikha {The Anointed One}, or there, don’t believe them.

ܢܩܘܡܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܓܠܐ ܘܢܒܝܐ ܕܟܕܒܘܬܐ ܘܢܬܠܘܢ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܪܘܪܒܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܛܥܘܢ ܐܢ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܐܦ ܠܓܒܝܐ
24 For, false meshikhe {anointed ones} and nabiye d’kadabutha {prophets of falsehood} will arise, and they will give great signs in order to deceive, if possible, even The Gabaya {The Elect/The Chosen Ones}.

ܗܐ ܩܕܡܬ ܐܡܪܬ ܠܟܘܢ
25 Behold, I have told you beforehand.

ܐܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܐ ܒܚܘܪܒܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܬܦܩܘܢ ܐܘ ܕܗܐ ܒܬܘܢܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܬܗܝܡܢܘܢ
26 If therefore they might say unto you, Look! He is in the khurba {the wilderness}, don’t go out. Or, Look! He is in the thuana {the inner chamber}, don’t believe them.

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܪܩܐ ܢܦܩ ܡܢ ܡܕܢܚܐ ܘܡܬܚܙܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܡܥܪܒܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܡܐܬܝܬܗ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
27 For, as the lightning comes out from the East and is seen as far as the West {lit. the sun setting}, thus will be the coming of The Son of Man.

ܐܝܟܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܦܓܪܐ ܬܡܢ ܢܬܟܢܫܘܢ ܢܫܪܐ
28 But, the place where the phagra {the body i.e. the carcass} shall be, there the vultures will gather.

ܡܚܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܬܪ ܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܕܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܫܡܫܐ ܢܚܫܟ ܘܣܗܪܐ ܠܐ ܢܚܘܐ ܢܘܗܪܗ ܘܟܘܟܒܐ ܢܦܠܘܢ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܚܝܠܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܢܬܬܙܝܥܘܢ
29 Then immediately after the tribulation of those days, the shemsha {the sun} will be darkened and the sahra {the moon} will not show nuhreh {his light}, and the kukbe {the stars} will fall from the Shmaya {the Heavens}, and the Khayle {the Powers} of the Shmaya {the Heavens} will be shaken.

ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܬܚܙܐ ܢܝܫܗ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܪܩܕܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܘܢܚܙܘܢ ܠܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܥܠ ܥܢܢܝ ܫܡܝܐ ܥܡ ܚܝܠܐ ܘܫܘܒܚܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ
30 And then, The Sign of The Son of Man will appear in the Shmaya {the Heavens}, and then all the tribes of the Earth will mourn, and they will see The Son of Man who comes upon the Nanay Shmaya {the Clouds of the Heavens} with great power and glory.

ܘܢܫܕܪ ܡܠܐܟܘܗܝ ܥܡ ܫܝܦܘܪܐ ܪܒܐ ܘܢܟܢܫܘܢ ܠܓܒܝܐ ܕܝܠܗ ܡܢ ܐܪܒܥܬ ܪܘܚܐ ܘܡܢ ܪܫܗܘܢ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܪܫܗܘܢ
31 And He will send Malakuhi {His Heavenly Messengers} with a shiphura raba {a great trumpet}, and they will gather His own Gabaya {Elect/Chosen Ones} from the four winds, and from one end of the Heavens, unto the other.

ܡܢ ܬܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܠܦܘ ܦܠܐܬܐ ܕܡܚܕܐ ܕܣܘܟܝܗ ܪܟܢ ܘܦܪܥܝܢ ܛܪܦܝܗ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܡܛܐ ܩܝܛܐ
32 Now, learn a Pheletha {a Simile/a Parable} from the thitha {the fig tree}, that as soon as its branches become tender and springs up its leaves, you know that qayta {summer} has arrived.

ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܐ ܕܚܙܝܬܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܕܥܘ ܕܡܛܬ ܠܗ ܠܬܪܥܐ
33 Likewise also when you have seen all these things, know that it has arrived at the door.

ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܬܥܒܪ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܢܗܘܝܢ
34 Amiyn {Truly} I say unto you, that this sharbtha {generation/family or tribe} will not pass away until all these things happen.

ܫܡܝܐ ܘܐܪܥܐ ܢܥܒܪܘܢ ܘܡܠܝ ܠܐ ܢܥܒܪܢ
35 The Heavens and the Earth will pass away, but My Words will not pass away.

ܥܠ ܝܘܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܗܘ ܘܥܠ ܫܥܬܐ ܗܝ ܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܒܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ
36 But, concerning that day and concerning that hour, no man knows, not even The Messengers of the Heavens, but The Father only.

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܘܡܝ ܢܘܚ ܗܟܢܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܡܐܬܝܬܗ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
37 But, as in the days of Nukh {Noah}, thus will be the coming of The Son of Man.

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܩܕܡ ܛܘܦܢܐ ܐܟܠܝܢ ܘܫܬܝܢ ܘܢܣܒܝܢ ܢܫܐ ܘܝܗܒܝܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܥܠ ܢܘܚ ܠܟܘܠܐ
38 For, as they were before the tuphana {the flood}, eating and drinking and taking neshe {women} and giving them unto gabre {men, i.e. in marriage}, up to the day that Nukh {Noah} entered into the Kula {the Ark},

ܘܠܐ ܝܕܥܘ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܛܘܦܢܐ ܘܫܩܠ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܡܐܬܝܬܗ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
39 and they didn’t know until the tuphana {the flood} came and took them all, thus shall be the coming of The Son of Man.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܬܪܝܢ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܒܩܪܝܬܐ ܚܕ ܢܬܕܒܪ ܘܚܕ ܢܫܬܒܩ
40 Then, two will be in the field, one will be taken, and one will be left.

ܘܬܪܬܝܢ ܢܗܘܝܢ ܛܚܢܢ ܒܪܚܝܐ ܚܕܐ ܡܬܕܒܪܐ ܘܚܕܐ ܡܫܬܒܩܐ
41 And two will be grinding at the rakhya {the millstone}, one will be taken, and one will be left.

ܐܬܬܥܝܪܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܐܝܕܐ ܫܥܬܐ ܐܬܐ ܡܪܟܘܢ
42 Therefore watch, because you do not know in what hour Markun {Your Lord} will come.

ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܘ ܕܐܠܘ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܡܪܐ ܒܝܬܐ ܒܐܝܕܐ ܡܛܪܬܐ ܐܬܐ ܓܢܒܐ ܡܬܬܥܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܘܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܬܦܠܫ ܒܝܬܗ
43 But know this, that if the lord of the house had known what watch the thief comes, he would have been awake and not have allowed his house to be broken into.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܛܝܒܝܢ ܕܒܫܥܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܣܒܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܢܐܬܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ
44 Because of this, you also must be ready, because in an hour that you don’t expect, The Son of Man will come.

ܡܢܘ ܟܝ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܥܒܕܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܘܚܟܝܡܐ ܕܐܩܝܡܗ ܡܪܗ ܥܠ ܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ ܕܢܬܠ ܠܗܘܢ ܣܝܒܪܬܐ ܒܙܒܢܗ
45 Who then is the faithful and wise servant whom Mareh {his Lord} has appointed him over His house sons {i.e. children}, that he should give them food in due season.

ܛܘܒܘܗܝ ܠܥܒܕܐ ܗܘ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܡܪܗ ܢܫܟܚܝܘܗܝ ܕܥܒܕ ܗܟܢܐ
46 Blessed is that servant whom when Mareh {his Lord} shall come will find him doing so.

ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܢܩܝܡܝܘܗܝ ܥܠ ܟܠ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ
47 Amyin {Truly} I say unto you, that he will appoint him over all that He has.

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܢܐܡܪ ܥܒܕܐ ܗܘ ܒܝܫܐ ܒܠܒܗ ܕܡܪܝ ܡܘܚܪ ܠܡܐܬܐ
48 But, if a servant who is evil should say in his heart that “Mari {My Lord} delays His coming,”

ܘܢܫܪܐ ܠܡܡܚܐ ܟܢܘܬܗ ܘܢܗܘܐ ܐܟܠ ܘܫܬܐ ܥܡ ܪܘܝܐ
49 and should begin to strike his fellow-servants, and to eat and drink with drunkards.

ܢܐܬܐ ܡܪܗ ܕܥܒܕܐ ܗܘ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܠܐ ܣܒܪ ܘܒܫܥܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ
50 The Lord of that servant will come in a day that he doesn’t expect, and in an hour that he doesn’t know.

ܘܢܦܠܓܝܘܗܝ ܘܢܣܝܡ ܡܢܬܗ ܥܡ ܢܣܒܝ ܒܐܦܐ ܬܡܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܟܝܐ ܘܚܘܪܩ ܫܢܐ
51 And He will divide him, and put his portion with the hypocrites. There will be weeping and teeth gnashing!

Chapter 25
ܗܝܕܝܢ ܬܕܡܐ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܠܥܣܪ ܒܬܘܠܢ ܗܢܝܢ ܕܢܣܒ ܠܡܦܕܝܗܝܢ ܘܢܦܩ ܠܐܘܪܥ ܚܬܢܐ ܘܟܠܬܐ
1 Then, The Malkutha d’Shmaya {The Kingdom of the Heavens} will be likened unto ten bethulan {virgins}, those who took their lamps and went out to the meeting of The Khathna {The Bridegroom} and The Kaltha {The Bride}.

ܚܡܫ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܗܝܢ ܚܟܝܡܢ ܗܘܝ ܘܚܡܫ ܣܟܠܢ
2 Now, five from them were khakiyman {wise ones}, and five saklan {foolish ones}.

ܘܗܢܝܢ ܣܟܠܬܐ ܢܣܒ ܠܡܦܕܝܗܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܢܣܒ ܥܡܗܝܢ ܡܫܚܐ
3 And those saklatha {foolish women} took their lamps, and didn’t take meshkha {oil} with them.

ܗܢܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܚܟܝܡܬܐ ܢܣܒ ܡܫܚܐ ܒܡܐܢܐ ܥܡ ܠܡܦܕܝܗܝܢ
4 But, those khakiymatha {wise women} took meshkha {oil} in vessels with their lamps.

ܟܕ ܐܘܚܪ ܕܝܢ ܚܬܢܐ ܢܡ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܘܕܡܟ
5 Now, when The Khathna {The Bridegroom} delayed, they all slumbered and slept.

ܘܒܦܠܓܗ ܕܠܠܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܩܥܬܐ ܗܐ ܚܬܢܐ ܐܬܐ ܦܘܩܘ ܠܐܘܪܥܗ
6 And in the middle of the night there was a qatha {an outcry}, ‘Behold! The Khathna {The Bridegroom} comes! Go out to His meeting!’

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܩܡ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܒܬܘܠܬܐ ܗܢܝܢ ܘܬܩܢ ܠܡܦܕܝܗܝܢ
7 Then all those bethulatha {virgin women} arose and prepared their lamps.

ܐܡܪܢ ܕܝܢ ܗܢܝܢ ܣܟܠܬܐ ܠܚܟܝܡܬܐ ܗܒܝܢ ܠܢ ܡܢ ܡܫܚܟܝܢ ܕܗܐ ܕܥܟܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܦܕܝܢ
8 Then those saklatha {foolish women} were saying unto the khakiymatha {wise women}, ‘Give unto us from your oil, because look! Our lamps have gone out!’

ܥܢܝ ܗܢܝܢ ܚܟܝܡܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܢ ܠܡܐ ܠܐ ܢܣܦܩ ܠܢ ܘܠܟܝܢ ܐܠܐ ܙܠܝܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܙܒܢܝܢ ܘܙܒܢܝܢ ܠܟܝܢ
9 Those khakiymatha {wise women} answered and said, ‘Why? There isn’t enough for us and for you, but rather, go to those who sell and buy for yourselves.’

ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠ ܠܡܙܒܢ ܐܬܐ ܚܬܢܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܛܝܒܢ ܗܘܝ ܥܠ ܥܡܗ ܠܒܝܬ ܚܠܘܠܐ ܘܐܬܬܚܕ ܬܪܥܐ
10 And while they went to buy, The Kathna {The Bridegroom} came, and those who were ready entered with Him into The Beth Khalua {The Feast House} and the door was locked.

ܒܚܪܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܝ ܐܦ ܗܢܝܢ ܒܬܘܠܬܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܢ ܡܪܢ ܡܪܢ ܦܬܚ ܠܢ
11 Then later, those other bethulatha {virgin women} also came, and were saying, ‘Maran {Our Lord}! Maran {Our Lord}! Open the door for us.’

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܝܢ
12 But, He answered and said unto them, “Amiyn {Truly} I say unto you, that I don’t know you!”

ܐܬܬܥܝܪܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܗܘ ܘܠܐ ܠܫܥܬܐ
13 Watch therefore, because you don’t know that day, and neither the hour.

ܐܝܟ ܓܒܪܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܚܙܩ ܩܪܐ ܠܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܫܠܡ ܠܗܘܢ ܩܢܝܢܗ
14 For, just as a Gabra {a Man} who journeyed called unto His servants and delivered His possessions unto them,

ܐܝܬ ܕܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܚܡܫ ܟܟܪܝܢ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܚܕܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܐܝܟ ܚܝܠܗ ܘܚܙܩ ܡܚܕܐ
15 there was one He gave five kakriyn {talents}, and there was one He gave two, and there was one He gave one; each nash {man} according to his ability. And He immediately journeyed.

ܐܙܠ ܕܝܢ ܗܘ ܕܢܣܒ ܚܡܫ ܟܟܪܝܢ ܐܬܬܓܪ ܒܗܝܢ ܘܝܬܪ ܚܡܫ ܐܚܪܢܝܢ
16 Now, that one who received five kakriyn {talents}, went and traded with them, and gained five others.

ܘܗܟܘܬ ܐܦ ܗܘ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܐܬܬܓܪ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܐܚܪܢܝܢ
17 And likewise also, that one of two talents, gained two others.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܣܒ ܚܕܐ ܐܙܠ ܚܦܪ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܘܛܫܝ ܟܣܦܐ ܕܡܪܗ
18 But, that one who received one, went and dug in the ground and hid the kespha {the silver/money} of Mareh {his Lord}.

ܒܬܪ ܕܝܢ ܙܒܢܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܐܬܐ ܡܪܗܘܢ ܕܥܒܕܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܢܣܒ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܚܘܫܒܢܐ
19 Now, after a long time, Marhun {Their Lord} came and received from them an account of those abde {slaves/servants}.

ܘܩܪܒ ܗܘ ܕܢܣܒ ܗܘܐ ܚܡܫ ܟܟܪܝܢ ܘܩܪܒ ܚܡܫ ܐܚܪܢܝܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܚܡܫ ܟܟܪܝܢ ܝܗܒܬ ܠܝ ܗܐ ܚܡܫ ܐܚܪܢܝܢ ܐܬܬܓܪܬ ܥܠܝܗܝܢ
20 And that one who received the five talents approached, and brought five others, and said, ‘Mari {My Lord}, you gave unto me five talents, look! I have added five others to them!’

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܗ ܐܝܘ ܥܒܕܐ ܛܒܐ ܘܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܥܠ ܩܠܝܠ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܗܘܝܬ ܥܠ ܣܓܝ ܐܩܝܡܟ ܥܘܠ ܠܚܕܘܬܗ ܕܡܪܟ
21 Mareh {His Lord} said unto him, ‘Well done good and faithful abda {slave/servant}! You have been faithful over a little, I will appoint you over much! Enter into the joy of Marak {your Lord}.’

ܘܩܪܒ ܗܘ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܟܟܪܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܟܟܪܝܢ ܝܗܒܬ ܠܝ ܗܐ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܐܚܪܢܝܢ ܐܬܬܓܪܬ ܥܠܝܗܝܢ
22 And the one who received two talents approached, and said, ‘Mari {My Lord}, you gave unto me two talents, look! I have added two others to them!’

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܗ ܐܝܘ ܥܒܕܐ ܛܒܐ ܘܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܥܠ ܩܠܝܠ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܗܘܝܬ ܥܠ ܣܓܝ ܐܩܝܡܟ ܥܘܠ ܠܚܕܘܬܗ ܕܡܪܟ
23 His Lord said unto him, ‘Well done good and faithful abda {slave/servant}. You have been faithful over a little, I will appoint you over much! Enter into the joy of Marak {Your Lord}.’

ܩܪܒ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܗܘ ܕܢܣܒ ܚܕܐ ܟܟܪܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܝܬ ܠܟ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܐܢܬ ܩܫܝܐ ܘܚܨܕ ܐܢܬ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܠܐ ܙܪܥܬ ܘܡܟܢܫ ܐܢܬ ܡܢ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܠܐ ܒܕܪܬ
24 Then the one who received one kakra {talent} also approached, and said, ‘Mari {My Lord}, you are known to be a hard man, and you reap where you don’t sow and you gather from where you don’t scatter.

ܘܕܚܠܬ ܘܐܙܠܬ ܛܫܝܬܗ ܟܟܪܟ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܗܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܟ ܕܝܠܟ
25 And I was afraid, and went and hid kakrak {your talent} in the ara {the ground}. Look! You have what is yours.’

ܥܢܐ ܡܪܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܥܒܕܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܘܚܒܢܢܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܝܬ ܠܝ ܕܚܨܕ ܐܢܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܠܐ ܙܪܥܬ ܘܡܟܢܫ ܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܠܐ ܒܕܪܬ
26 Mareh {His Lord} answered and said unto him, ‘Evil and lazy abda {slave/servant}! You knew Me, that I reap where I don’t sow, and I gather from where I don’t scatter!

ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܕܬܪܡܐ ܟܣܦܝ ܥܠ ܦܬܘܪܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܐܢܐ ܘܬܒܥ ܗܘܝܬ ܕܝܠܝ ܥܡ ܪܒܝܬܗ
27 It was right that you should have put kesphi {My silver/money} on the table {i.e. the exchange table}, and I would have come and have required my own with its interest.

ܣܒܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܢܗ ܟܟܪܐ ܘܗܒܘܗ ܠܗܘ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܥܣܪ ܟܟܪܝܢ
28 Take therefore the kakra {the talent} from him, and give it unto that one who has ten kakriyn {talents}.

ܠܡܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܢܬܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܘܢܬܬܘܣܦ ܠܗ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܝܬ ܠܗ ܘܐܦ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܢܫܬܩܠ ܡܢܗ
29 For, unto the one who has, it will be given unto him, and it will increase unto him. But, that one who doesn’t have, and even that which he has, will be taken from him.’

ܘܠܥܒܕܐ ܒܛܝܠܐ ܐܦܩܘܗܝ ܠܚܫܘܟܐ ܒܪܝܐ ܬܡܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܟܝܐ ܘܚܘܪܩ ܫܢܐ
30 And the useless servant was thrown into the outer darkness. There shall be weeping and teeth gnashing!

31 Now, when The Son of Man comes in Shubkheh {His glory}, and all Malakuhi Qadishe {His Holy Heavenly Messengers} with Him, then He will sit on The Thrunus d’Shubkheh {The Throne of His Glory/His Glorious Throne}.

ܘܢܬܟܢܫܘܢ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܘܢܦܪܫ ܐܢܘܢ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܚܕ ܐܝܟ ܪܥܝܐ ܕܡܦܪܫ ܥܪܒܐ ܡܢ ܓܕܝܐ
32 And all the Nations will be gathered before Him. And He will separate them, one from another, as a shepherd separates the erbe {the sheep} from the gadaya {the goats}.

ܘܢܩܝܡ ܥܪܒܐ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܗ ܘܓܕܝܐ ܡܢ ܣܡܠܗ
33 And He will stand the erbe {the sheep} at His right and the gadaya {the goats} at His left.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܐܡܪ ܡܠܟܐ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܗ ܬܘ ܒܪܝܟܘܗܝ ܕܐܒܝ ܝܪܬܘ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܥܬܝܕܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܬܪܡܝܬܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ
34 Then, The Malka {The King} will say unto those who are at His right, ‘Come, blessed of Abi {My Father}, inherit The Malkutha {The Kingdom} which was prepared for you from the foundations of the world.

ܟܦܢܬ ܓܝܪ ܘܝܗܒܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܠܡܐܟܠ ܘܨܗܝܬ ܘܐܫܩܝܬܘܢܢܝ ܐܟܣܢܝܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܟܢܫܬܘܢܢܝ
35 For, I was hungry, and you gave unto Me food to eat. And I was thirsty and you gave me drink. I was a stranger, and you took Me in.

ܥܪܛܠܝܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܟܣܝܬܘܢܢܝ ܟܪܝܗ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܣܥܪܬܘܢܢܝ ܘܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܐܬܝܬܘܢ ܠܘܬܝ
36 I was artelaya {naked}, and you covered Me. I was sick, and you visited Me. And I was in the prisoner’s house, and you came unto Me.’

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܗ ܗܢܘܢ ܙܕܝܩܐ ܡܪܢ ܐܡܬܝ ܚܙܝܢܟ ܕܟܦܢ ܐܢܬ ܘܬܪܣܝܢܟ ܐܘ ܕܨܗܐ ܐܢܬ ܘܐܫܩܝܢܟ
37 Then, those will say unto Him, ‘Zadiyke Maran {Our Righteous Lord}, when did we see that you were hungry, and feed you, or that you were thirsty, and gave you drink?

ܘܐܡܬܝ ܚܙܝܢܟ ܕܐܟܣܢܝܐ ܐܢܬ ܘܟܢܫܢܟ ܐܘ ܕܥܪܛܠܝ ܐܢܬ ܘܟܣܝܢܟ
38 And when did we see that you were a stranger, and took you in, or that you were naked, and covered you?

ܘܐܡܬܝ ܚܙܝܢܟ ܟܪܝܗܐ ܐܘ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܘܐܬܝܢ ܠܘܬܟ
39 And when did we see you sick, or in the beth asiyre {the prisoner’s house}, and come unto you?’

ܘܥܢܐ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܡܐ ܕܥܒܕܬܘܢ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܚܝ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܠܝ ܗܘ ܥܒܕܬܘܢ
40 And The Malka {The King} will answer and say unto them, ‘Amiyn {Truly} I say unto you, inasmuch as you have done it unto one from the least of these My brothers, the very same has done it unto me.’

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܐܡܪ ܐܦ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܣܡܠܗ ܙܠܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢܝ ܠܝܛܐ ܠܢܘܪܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܗܝ ܕܡܛܝܒܐ ܠܐܟܠܩܪܨܐ ܘܠܡܠܐܟܘܗܝ
41 Then He will also say unto those who are at His left, ‘Go from me, you cursed! Unto the fire which is everlasting, that which is prepared for the akelqartsa {the feeder of slander/the accuser i.e. the devil} and for malakuhi {his messengers}.

ܟܦܢܬ ܓܝܪ ܘܠܐ ܝܗܒܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܠܡܐܟܠ ܘܨܗܝܬ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܩܝܬܘܢܢܝ
42 For, I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat. And I was thirsty, and no drink.

ܘܐܟܣܢܝܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܠܐ ܟܢܫܬܘܢܢܝ ܘܥܪܛܠܝܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܠܐ ܟܣܝܬܘܢܢܝ ܘܟܪܝܗܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܠܐ ܣܥܪܬܘܢܢܝ
43 And I was a stranger, and you didn’t take Me in. And I was naked, and you didn’t cover Me. And I was sick, and I was in the prisoner’s house, and you didn’t visit Me.’

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܥܢܘܢ ܐܦ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܡܪܢ ܐܡܬܝ ܚܙܝܢܟ ܟܦܢܐ ܐܘ ܨܗܝܐ ܐܘ ܐܟܣܢܝܐ ܐܘ ܥܪܛܠܝܐ ܐܘ ܟܪܝܗܐ ܐܘ ܒܝܬ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܫܡܫܢܟ
44 Then, they also will answer and say, ‘Maran {Our Lord}, when did we see you hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in the prisoner’s house, and didn’t minister unto you?’

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܥܢܐ ܘܢܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܡܐ ܕܠܐ ܥܒܕܬܘܢ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܠܝ ܥܒܕܬܘܢ
45 Then He will answer and say unto them, ‘Amiyn {Truly} I say unto you, inasmuch as you didn’t do it unto one from these little ones, you also didn’t do it unto Me.’

ܘܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܠܬܫܢܝܩܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܘܙܕܝܩܐ ܠܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
46 And these will go unto The Torment which is everlasting, and The Zadiyqe {The Righteous} unto The Life which is everlasting.”

Chapter 26
ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܫܠܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
1 And it happened that when Eshu {Y’shu} had finished all these words, He said unto His Disciples,

ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܒܬܪ ܬܪܝܢ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܗܘܐ ܦܨܚܐ ܘܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܡܫܬܠܡ ܕܢܙܕܩܦ
2 “You know that after two days The Peskha {The Passover} will happen, and The Son of Man will be handed over to be crucified.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܣܦܪܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܥܡܐ ܠܕܪܬܗ ܕܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܩܝܦܐ
3 Then, the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs}, and the Saphre {the Scribes}, and the Qashishe d’Ama {the Elders of the People}, gathered unto the Court of The Rab Kahne {The Priest’s Chief}, who was called Qayapha {Caiaphas}.

ܘܐܬܡܠܟܘ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܒܢܟܠܐ ܢܐܚܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܢܩܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ
4 And they took counsel concerning Eshu {Y’shu} that by deceit they might take Him and kill Him.

ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐ ܒܥܕܥܕܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܫܓܘܫܝܐ ܒܥܡܐ
5 And they were saying, “Not during The Adiada {The Feast}, so that a riot won’t occur among the Ama {the People}.”

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܒܝܬ ܥܢܝܐ ܒܒܝܬܗ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܓܪܒܐ
6 And when Eshu {Y’shu} was in Beth-Anya {Bethany}, in the house of Shimeun Garaba {Simeon, the Jar-maker},

ܩܪܒܬ ܠܗ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܥܠܝܗ ܫܛܝܦܬܐ ܕܡܫܚܐ ܕܒܣܡܐ ܣܓܝ ܕܡܝܐ ܘܐܫܦܥܬܗ ܥܠ ܪܫܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܟܕ ܣܡܝܟ
7 a woman approached Him who had on her a translucent jar of incensed oil of great price, and she poured it on the head of Eshu {Y’shu}, while He was reclining.

ܚܙܘ ܕܝܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܬܒܐܫ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܡܢܐ ܐܒܕܢܐ ܗܢܐ
8 Now, His Disciples saw it, and it displeased them, and they said, “Why this waste?

ܡܫܟܚ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܙܕܒܢ ܗܢܐ ܒܣܓܝ ܘܢܬܝܗܒ ܠܡܣܟܢܐ
9 For, this was able that it could have been sold for much, and should have been given unto the poor!”

ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܡܠܐܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ ܠܐܢܬܬܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܥܒܕܬ ܠܘܬܝ
10 But, Eshu {Y’shu} knew this, and said unto them, “Why are you harassing the woman? She has done a good deed for Me.

ܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܓܝܪ ܡܣܟܢܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܠܝ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ
11 For, you always have the poor with you, but, you don’t always have Me.

ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܪܡܝܬ ܒܣܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܥܠ ܓܘܫܡܝ ܐܝܟ ܕܠܡܩܒܪܢܝ ܥܒܕܬ
12 But, the one who poured this besma {incense i.e. incensed ointment/oil} on My body, she did it as though for My burial.

ܘܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܝܟܐ ܕܬܬܟܪܙ ܣܒܪܬܝ ܗܕܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܥܠܡܐ ܢܬܡܠܠ ܐܦ ܡܕܡ ܕܥܒܕܬ ܗܕܐ ܠܕܘܟܪܢܗ
13 And amiyn, {truly} I say unto you, that wherever this, Sabarthi {My Hopeful Message} is Proclaimed in all the alma {the world}, this thing which she did, will also be told for her memorial.”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܙܠ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܬܪܥܣܪ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܣܟܪܝܘܛܐ ܠܘܬ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ
14 Then, one of The Twelve, who was called Yehuda Skariuta {Judah/Judas, the Iscariot}, went to the Priest’s Chiefs.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܬܠ ܠܝ ܘܐܢܐ ܡܫܠܡ ܐܢܐ ܠܗ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܩܝܡܘ ܠܗ ܬܠܬܝܢ ܕܟܣܦܐ
15 And he said unto them, “What are you willing to give me, and I will deliver him unto you?” Then they swore to him thirty pieces of kespha {silver}.

ܘܡܢ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܦܠܥܐ ܕܢܫܠܡܝܘܗܝ
16 And from then on, he was seeking an opportunity to betray Him.

ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܕܦܛܝܪܐ ܩܪܒܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܐܝܟܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܕܢܛܝܒ ܠܟ ܕܬܠܥܣ ܦܨܚܐ
17 Now, on the first day of Phatiyre {The Feast of the Unleavened Breads}, The Disciples drew near to Eshu {Y’shu} and said unto Him, “Where do you want us to prepare for you that you may eat the Peskha {the Passover}?”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܠܘ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܦܠܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܪܒܢ ܐܡܪ ܙܒܢܝ ܡܛܐ ܠܗ ܠܘܬܟ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܦܨܚܐ ܥܡ ܬܠܡܝܕܝ
18 Then He said unto them, “Go unto the city, to such a man, and say unto him, ‘Our Master says, My time has arrived, with you I will celebrate the Peskha {the Passover} together with My Disciples.’”

ܘܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܥܒܕܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܦܩܕ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܛܝܒܘ ܦܨܚܐ
19 And His Disciples did as Eshu {Y’shu} commanded them. And they prepared the Peskha {the Passover}.

ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܪܡܫܐ ܣܡܝܟ ܗܘܐ ܥܡ ܬܪܥܣܪ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
20 And when it was ramsha {evening}, He was reclining with His Twelve Disciples.

ܘܟܕ ܠܥܣܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܚܕ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܡܫܠܡ ܠܝ
21 And while they were eating, He said, “Amyin {Truly} I say unto you, that one from you will betray Me.”

ܘܟܪܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܛܒ ܘܫܪܝܘ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܚܕ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܠܡܐ ܐܢܐ ܡܪܝ
22 And it grieved them much, and they began to say unto Him, each one from them, “Perhaps it is I, Mari {My Lord}?”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܢ ܕܨܒܥ ܐܝܕܗ ܥܡܝ ܒܠܓܬܐ ܗܘ ܢܫܠܡܢܝ
23 Then He answered and said, “The one who is dipping his hand with Me in the dish, he will betray Me.

ܘܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܐܙܠ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܘܝ ܠܗ ܕܝܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܗܘ ܕܒܐܝܕܗ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܡܫܬܠܡ ܦܩܚ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܗܘ ܐܠܘ ܠܐ ܐܬܝܠܕ
24 And The Son of Man will go as it is written concerning Him, but, woe unto the gabra {the man}, that one by whose hand The Son of Man is betrayed. It would have been better for him, if that gabra {man} hadn’t been born.”

ܥܢܐ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܡܫܠܡܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܠܡܐ ܐܢܐ ܗܘ ܪܒܝ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢܬ ܐܡܪܬ
25 Yehuda Mashlamana {Judah/Judas}, The Traitor, answered and said “Perhaps it is I, Rabi {My Master}?” Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “You said it!”

ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܠܥܣܝܢ ܫܩܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܚܡܐ ܘܒܪܟ ܘܩܨܐ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܣܒܘ ܐܟܘܠܘ ܗܢܘ ܦܓܪܝ
26 Then, as they were eating, Eshu {Y’shu} took Lakhma {The Bread}, and blessed and broke it, and gave it unto His Disciples, and said, “Take, eat, this is My Body.”

ܘܫܩܠ ܟܣܐ ܘܐܘܕܝ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܣܒܘ ܐܫܬܘ ܡܢܗ ܟܠܟܘܢ
27 And He took The Kasa {The Cup} and gave thanks, and gave it unto them, and said, “Take, drink from it, all of you.

ܗܢܐ ܕܡܝ ܕܕܝܬܩܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܕܚܠܦ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܬܐܫܕ ܠܫܘܒܩܢܐ ܕܚܛܗܐ
28 This is My Blood of The New Covenant, which for the sake of many is poured out for the forgiveness of sins.

ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܐܫܬܐ ܡܢ ܗܫܐ ܡܢ ܗܢܐ ܝܠܕܐ ܕܓܦܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܒܗ ܐܫܬܝܘܗܝ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܚܕܬܐ ܒܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
29 But I say unto you, that I will not drink this fruit of The Vine from now on, until the day in which I will drink it anew with you in The Malkutheh d’Alaha {The Kingdom of God}.”

ܘܫܒܚܘ ܘܢܦܩܘ ܠܛܘܪ ܙܝܬܐ
30 And they offered praise, and went out unto The Tur Zaythe {The Mount of Olives}.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܬܬܟܫܠܘܢ ܒܝ ܒܗܢܐ ܠܠܝܐ ܟܬܝܒ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܡܚܐ ܠܪܥܝܐ ܘܢܬܒܕܪܘܢ ܥܪܒܐ ܕܥܢܗ
31 Then, Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “You all will be offended in Me in this night, for, it is written that ‘I will strike The Shepherd, and The Sheep of His Flock will be scattered.’

ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܕܩܐܡ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܩܕܡ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ
32 But, after I have risen, I go before you unto Galila {Galilee}.”

ܥܢܐ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܦܢ ܟܠܢܫ ܢܬܟܫܠ ܒܟ ܐܢܐ ܡܡܬܘܡ ܠܐ ܐܬܟܫܠ ܒܟ
33 Kepha {The Rock} answered, and said unto Him, “Even if every one is offended in You, I will never be offended in You.”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܕܒܗܢܐ ܠܠܝܐ ܩܕܡ ܕܢܩܪܐ ܬܪܢܓܠܐ ܬܠܬ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܬܟܦܘܪ ܒܝ
34 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “Amiyn {Truly} I say to you, that in this night, before the tharnagla {the rooster} crows, you will deny me three times.”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܟܐܦܐ ܐܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܝ ܠܡܡܬ ܥܡܟ ܠܐ ܐܟܦܘܪ ܒܟ ܘܗܟܘܬ ܐܦ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܐܡܪܘ
35 Kepha {The Rock} says unto Him, “If I were to die with You, I wouldn’t deny You!” And all The Disciples likewise also said.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܬܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܕܘܟܬܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܓܕܣܡܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܬܒܘ ܗܪܟܐ ܥܕ ܐܙܠ ܐܨܠܐ
36 Then Eshu {Y’shu} came with them unto a place which is called Gedsiman {Gethsemane}. And He said unto His Disciples, “Sit here while I go and pray.”

ܘܕܒܪ ܠܟܐܦܐ ܘܠܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܙܒܕܝ ܘܫܪܝ ܠܡܬܟܡܪܘ ܘܠܡܬܬܥܩܘ
37 And he took Kepha {The Rock} and the two sons of Zabday {Zebedee}, and began to be gloomy and distressed.

ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܪܝܐ ܗܝ ܠܗ ܠܢܦܫܝ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܡܘܬܐ ܩܘܘ ܠܝ ܗܪܟܐ ܘܫܗܪܘ ܥܡܝ
38 And He said unto them, “There is grief for My Soul, unto the point of death. Remain here with Me and watch {i.e. be alert/stay awake}.”

ܘܦܪܩ ܩܠܝܠ ܘܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܐܦܘܗܝ ܘܡܨܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܒܝ ܐܢ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܢܥܒܪܢܝ ܟܣܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܪܡ ܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܢܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܢܬ
39 And He departed a little way and fell upon His face, and was praying and said, “Abi {My Father}, if it’s possible, let this Kasa {Cup} pass over Me, nevertheless, not as I am desiring, but as You desire.”

ܘܐܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܫܟܚ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܕܡܟܝܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܟܐܦܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܬܘܢ ܚܕܐ ܫܥܐ ܕܬܫܗܪܘܢ ܥܡܝ
40 And He came to His Disciples and found them while they were sleeping, and He said unto Kepha {The Rock}, “So, you weren’t able to watch {stay awake} one hour with Me?

ܐܬܬܥܝܪܘ ܘܨܠܘ ܕܠܐ ܬܥܠܘܢ ܠܢܣܝܘܢܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܡܛܝܒܐ ܦܓܪܐ ܕܝܢ ܟܪܝܗ
41 You must watch and pray, so that you will not enter into nesyuna {testing, or temptation}. The spirit is ready, but the body is weak.”

ܬܘܒ ܐܙܠ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܨܠܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܒܝ ܐܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܗܢܐ ܟܣܐ ܕܢܥܒܪ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܐܫܬܝܬܗ ܢܗܘܐ ܨܒܝܢܟ
42 Again He went away the second time, and He prayed and said, “Abi {My Father}, if this Kasa {Cup} cannot pass, except I drink it, Your will be done.”

ܘܐܬܐ ܬܘܒ ܐܫܟܚ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܕܡܟܝܢ ܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܝܩܝܪܢ ܗܘܝ
43 And He came again and found them while they were sleeping, for, their eyes were heavy.

ܘܫܒܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܐܙܠ ܬܘܒ ܨܠܝ ܕܬܠܬ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܘܠܗ ܠܡܠܬܐ ܐܡܪ
44 And He left them and went away again, and prayed for the third time, and He said the same words.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܡܟܘ ܡܟܝܠ ܘܐܬܬܢܝܚܘ ܗܐ ܡܛܬ ܫܥܬܐ ܘܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܡܫܬܠܡ ܒܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܕܚܛܝܐ
45 Then He came to His Disciples and said unto them, “Sleep on now, and take your rest, look! The hour has arrived, and The Son of Man is delivered into the hands of the Khataye {the Sinners}.

ܩܘܡܘ ܢܐܙܠ ܗܐ ܡܛܐ ܗܘ ܕܡܫܠܡ ܠܝ
46 Arise! Let us go. Look! That one who betrays Me has come.

ܘܥܕ ܗܘ ܡܡܠܠ ܗܐ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܡܫܠܡܢܐ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܬܪܥܣܪܬܐ ܐܬܐ ܘܟܢܫܐ ܥܡܗ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܥܡ ܣܦܣܪܐ ܘܚܘܛܪܐ ܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܥܡܐ
47 And while He was speaking, behold, Yehuda Mashlamana {Judah/Judas, The Traitor}, one from The Twelve, came, and with him a great crowd with saphsire {swords/daggers} and khutre {sticks/staffs} in front of the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs} and the Qashishe d’Ama {the Elders of the People}.

ܘܝܗܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܬܐ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܡܫܠܡܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘ ܕܢܫܩ ܐܢܐ ܗܘܝܘ ܠܗ ܐܚܘܕܘ
48 And Yehuda Mashlamana {Judah/Judas, The Traitor} had given them a sign and said, “That one whom I kiss, is he, seize him.”

ܘܡܚܕܐ ܩܪܒ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܫܠܡ ܪܒܝ ܘܢܫܩܗ
49 And immediately he drew near towards Eshu {Y’shu}, and said unto Him, “Shlam Rabi {Greetings, My Master},” and kissed Him.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܥܠ ܗܝ ܕܐܬܝܬ ܚܒܪܝ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܬܩܪܒܘ ܘܐܪܡܝܘ ܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܚܕܘܗܝ
50 Then He, Eshu {Y’shu}, said unto him, “For this reason you have come, My friend?” Then they approached and placed their hands upon Eshu {Y’shu} and seized Him.

ܘܗܐ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܥܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܘܫܛ ܐܝܕܗ ܘܫܡܛ ܣܦܣܪܐ ܘܡܚܝܗܝ ܠܥܒܕܗ ܕܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܫܩܠܗ ܐܕܢܗ
51 And behold, one from them who was with Eshu {Y’shu} stretched out his hand and drew the sword, and struck a servant of The Rab Kahne {The Priest’s Chief}, and cut off his ear.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܗܦܟ ܣܦܣܪܐ ܠܕܘܟܬܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܢܣܒܘ ܣܝܦܐ ܒܣܝܦܐ ܢܡܘܬܘܢ
52 Then Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “Return saphsira {the sword} unto its place, for, all those who take up sayphe {swords}, will die by sayphe {swords}.

ܐܘ ܣܒܪ ܐܢܬ ܕܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܒܥܐ ܡܢ ܐܒܝ ܘܢܩܝܡ ܠܝ ܗܫܐ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܬܪܬܥܣܪܐ ܠܓܝܘܢܝܢ ܕܡܠܐܟܐ
53 Or don’t you think that I am able to ask from Abi {My Father} to now raise up for Me more than twelve legions of The Malake {The Heavenly Messengers}?

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܬܡܠܘܢ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܕܢܗܘܐ
54 How then will The Kathabe {The Scriptures} be fulfilled, that thus it must be?”

ܒܗܝ ܫܥܬܐ ܐܡܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܥܠ ܓܝܣܐ ܢܦܩܬܘܢ ܒܣܦܣܪܐ ܘܒܚܘܛܪܐ ܕܬܐܚܕܘܢܢܝ ܟܠܝܘܡ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܝܬܒ ܗܘܝܬ ܘܡܠܦ ܘܠܐ ܐܚܕܬܘܢܢܝ
55 In that hour Eshu {Y’shu} said unto the kenshe {the crowds}, “As against a gayasa {a robber} you have come out with swords and staffs to seize Me. Daily I was with you and was sitting in The Haykla {The Temple} teaching, and you didn’t seize Me.

ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܗܘܬ ܕܢܬܡܠܘܢ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܫܒܩܘܗܝ ܘܥܪܩܘ
56 But, this has happened, so that The Kathabe d’Nabiye {The Writings of The Prophets} might be fulfilled.” Then The Talmiyde {The Disciples} all left Him, and fled.

ܘܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܚܕܘܗܝ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܐܘܒܠܘܗܝ ܠܘܬ ܩܝܦܐ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܣܦܪܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ
57 And those who seized Eshu {Y’shu} took Him to Qayapha Rab Kahne {Caiaphas, the Priest’s Chief}, where the Saphre {the Scribes}, and the Qashishe {the Elders} were assembled.

ܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܐܙܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܬܪܗ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܩܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܕܪܬܗ ܕܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܥܠ ܝܬܒ ܠܓܘ ܥܡ ܕܚܫܐ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܚܪܬܐ
58 On the other hand, Shimeun {Simeon}, called ‘Kepha’ {The Rock}, was going behind Him from a distance up to the Court of The Rab Kahne {The Priest’s Chief}, and he entered and sat inside with the dakhshe {the attendants}, so that he might see the khartha {the end}.

ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܟܠܗ ܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܣܗܕܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܡܝܬܘܢܝܗܝ
59 Now, the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs}, and the Qashishe {the Elders} and the whole Kenushtha {Synagogue/Assembly}, were seeking witnesses against Eshu {Y’shu}, so that they could kill Him,

ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܘܐܬܘ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܣܗܕܐ ܕܫܘܩܪܐ ܐܚܪܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܬܪܝܢ
60 and they didn’t find them. And many false witnesses came. Then at the last, two was brought forth,

ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܕܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܫܪܐ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܐܒܢܝܘܗܝ
61 and said, “This one said that, ‘I am able to destroy The Haykla d’Alaha {The Temple of God}, and in three days rebuild it!’”

ܘܩܡ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܡܦܢܐ ܐܢܬ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܡܢܐ ܡܣܗܕܝܢ ܥܠܝܟ ܗܠܝܢ
62 And The Rab Kahne {The Priest’s Chief} arose, and said unto Him, “Do you not answer something to this statement, what it is that these testify against you?”

ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܫܬܝܩ ܗܘܐ ܘܥܢܐ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܘܡܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܒܐܠܗܐ ܚܝܐ ܕܬܐܡܪ ܠܢ ܐܢ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
63 But, Eshu {Y’shu} was silent, and The Rab Kahne {The Priest’s Chief} answered and said unto him, “I adjure you by Alaha Khaya {The Living God}, that you tell us if you are Meshikha breh d’Alaha {The Anointed One, The Son of God}!

ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢܬ ܐܡܪܬ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܗܫܐ ܬܚܙܘܢܝܗܝ ܠܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܕܝܬܒ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܐ ܕܚܝܠܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܥܠ ܥܢܢܝ ܫܡܝܐ
64 Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “You said it! But, I say unto you, that from now on you will see The Son of Man who sits at the right hand of The Khayla {The Power}, and is coming on The Nanay Shmaya {The Clouds of the Heavens}!”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܨܪܝ ܡܐܢܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܗܐ ܓܕܦ ܡܢܐ ܡܟܝܠ ܡܬܒܥܝܢ ܠܢ ܣܗܕܐ ܗܐ ܗܫܐ ܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܓܘܕܦܗ
65 Then, The Rab Kahne {The Priest’s Chief} tore his garments, and said, “Look! Gadeph {He blasphemes}! Why therefore do we seek sahde {witnesses}? Behold, now you have heard gudaphe {his blasphemy}!

ܡܢܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܢܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܚܝܒ ܗܘ ܡܘܬܐ
66 What do you want?” They answered and said, “He is guilty of death!”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܪܩܘ ܒܐܦܘܗܝ ܘܡܩܦܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
67 Then they spit in His face, and they were striking Him on the head, but others were beating Him.

ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܬܢܒܐ ܠܢ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܢܘ ܗܘ ܕܡܚܟ
68 And they were saying unto Him, “Ethnaba {Prophesy} for us Meshikha {The Anointed One}, who is the one who struck you?”

ܟܐܦܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܪ ܒܕܪܬܐ ܘܩܪܒܬ ܠܘܬܗ ܐܡܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܠܗ ܐܦ ܐܢܬ ܥܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܗܘܝܬ ܢܨܪܝܐ
69 Now, Kepha {The Rock} was sitting outside in the courtyard, and a certain amtha {servant girl} drew near to him, and was saying unto him, “You also were with Eshu Natsraya {Y’shu, the Nazarene}!”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܟܦܪ ܩܕܡ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܡܢܐ ܐܡܪܐ ܐܢܬܝ
70 But, he denied it before them all, and said, “I don’t know what you are saying.”

ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩ ܠܣܦܐ ܚܙܬܗ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܬܡܢ ܗܘܐ ܐܦ ܗܢܐ ܥܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܢܨܪܝܐ
71 And when he went out unto the sepha {the porch}, another saw him, and said unto them that were there, “This man was also with Eshu Natsraya {Y’shu, the Nazarene}!”

ܘܬܘܒ ܟܦܪ ܒܡܘܡܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܗ ܠܓܒܪܐ
72 And again he denied it, with mawmatha {oaths}, “I don’t know the gabra {man}!”

ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܩܠܝܠ ܕܝܢ ܩܪܒܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܟܐܦܐ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܐܦ ܐܢܬ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܢܬ ܐܦ ܡܡܠܠܟ ܓܝܪ ܡܘܕܥ ܠܟ
73 Then after a little while, those who were standing by drew near and said unto Kepha {The Rock}, “Truly, you are also from them, for, even your speech makes you known!”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܪܝ ܠܡܚܪܡܘ ܘܠܡܐܡܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܠܗ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܩܪܐ ܬܪܢܓܠܐ
74 Then, he began to curse and swear, “I don’t know the gabra {man}!” And at that moment the tharnagla {the roster} cried out.

ܘܐܬܕܟܪ ܟܐܦܐ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܕܩܕܡ ܕܢܩܪܐ ܬܪܢܓܠܐ ܬܠܬ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܬܟܦܘܪ ܒܝ ܘܢܦܩ ܠܒܪ ܒܟܐ ܡܪܝܪܐܝܬ
75 And Kepha {The Rock} remembered the word which Eshu {Y’shu} had said unto him that, “Before the tharnagla {the roster} cries out three times, you will deny me.” And he went outside weeping bitterly.

Chapter 27
ܟܕ ܕܝܢ ܗܘܐ ܨܦܪܐ ܡܠܟܐ ܢܣܒܘ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܥܡܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܡܝܬܘܢܝܗܝ
1 Now when it was daybreak, all the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs}, and the Qashishe d’Ama {the Elders of the People}, took counsel concerning Eshu {Y’shu}, how they might put Him to death.

ܘܐܣܪܘܗܝ ܘܐܘܒܠܘܗܝ ܘܐܫܠܡܘܗܝ ܠܦܝܠܛܘܣ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ
2 And they bound Him and led Him away and delivered Him unto Pilatus Higmuna, {Pilate, the Governor}.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܡܫܠܡܢܐ ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܐܬܚܝܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܬܬܘܝ ܘܐܙܠ ܐܗܦܟ ܗܠܝܢ ܬܠܬܝܢ ܕܟܣܦܐ ܠܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܠܩܫܝܫܐ
3 Then Yehuda Mashlamana {Judah/Judas, The Traitor}, when he saw that Eshu {Y’shu} was condemned, he repented, and went and returned those thirty pieces of kespha {silver} unto the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs}, and unto the Qashishe {the Elders}.

ܘܐܡܪ ܚܛܝܬ ܕܐܫܠܡܬ ܕܡܐ ܙܟܝܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܠܢ ܡܐ ܠܢ ܐܢܬ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܬ
4 And he said, “I have sinned, because I have betrayed innocent blood.” But, they said unto him, “What is that to us? That is your problem.”

ܘܫܕܝܗܝ ܟܣܦܐ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܫܢܝ ܘܐܙܠ ܚܢܩ ܢܦܫܗ
5 And he threw the kespha {the silver} into The Haykla {The Temple}, and departed, and went and khanaq naphsheh {hanged/strangled his soul/himself}.

ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܫܩܠܘܗܝ ܠܟܣܦܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܐ ܫܠܝܛ ܕܢܪܡܝܘܗܝ ܒܝܬ ܩܘܪܒܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܛܝܡܝ ܕܡܐ ܗܘ
6 Now, the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs} took the kespha {the silver}, and said, “It isn’t lawful to put it into the house of offerings, because it is the price of blood.”

ܘܢܣܒܘ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܙܒܢܘ ܒܗ ܐܓܘܪܣܗ ܕܦܚܪܐ ܠܒܝܬ ܩܒܘܪܐ ܕܐܟܣܢܝܐ
7 And they took counsel, and bought a field of a potter with it, for a beth qabura {a tomb place i.e. a cemetery} for strangers.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܩܪܝ ܐܓܘܪܣܐ ܗܘ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܕܕܡܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܢܐ
8 Because of this, that gursa {field} is called Qriytha d’Dama ‘The Field of Blood’ to this day.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܬܡܠܝ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܒܢܒܝܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܢܣܒܬ ܬܠܬܝܢ ܕܟܣܦܐ ܕܡܘܗܝ ܕܝܩܝܪܐ ܕܩܨܘ ܡܢ ܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ
9 Then the thing was fulfilled which was spoken by the Prophet, who said, “I took the thirty pieces of kespha {silver}, the price of The Precious One, which was agreed upon by the sons of IysraIyl {Israel}.

ܘܝܗܒܬ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐܓܘܪܣܗ ܕܦܚܪܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܦܩܕ ܠܝ ܡܪܝܐ
10 And I gave them for the field of a potter, as MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} commanded me.”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܡ ܩܕܡ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܘܫܐܠܗ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢܬ ܐܡܪܬ
11 Now He, Eshu {Y’shu}, stood before the Higmuna {the Governor} and the Higmuna asked Him, and said unto Him, “Are you The Malka d’Yehudaye {The King of the Judeans/Jews}?” Eshu {Y’shu} said unto him, “You said it!”

ܘܟܕ ܐܟܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܩܪܨܘܗܝ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܡܕܡ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܦܢܝ
12 And while the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs} and the Qashishe {the Elders} were accusing Him, He didn’t return any statement.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܦܝܠܛܘܣ ܠܐ ܫܡܥ ܐܢܬ ܟܡܐ ܡܣܗܕܝܢ ܥܠܝܟ
13 Then Pilatus {Pilate} said unto Him, “Don’t you hear how much they testify against you!?”

ܘܠܐ ܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܒܚܕܐ ܡܠܐ ܘܥܠ ܗܕܐ ܐܬܕܡܪ ܛܒ
14 And He didn’t give a statement unto him, not even one word. Concerning this he greatly marveled.

ܒܟܠ ܥܐܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܥܕ ܗܘܐ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܕܢܫܪܐ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܚܕ ܠܥܡܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܨܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ
15 Now, at every Iada {Festival}, it was the Higmuna’s {the Governor’s} custom that he would loose one prisoner for the Ama {the People}; whomever they desired.

ܐܣܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܣܝܪܐ ܝܕܝܥܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܒܪ ܐܒܐ
16 Now, they had bound a well-known prisoner who was called Bar-Aba {son of the father}.

ܘܟܕ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܝܠܛܘܣ ܠܡܢ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܫܪܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܒܪ ܐܒܐ ܐܘ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܡܫܝܚܐ
17 And when they were gathered, Pilatus {Pilate} said unto them, “Whom do you desire that I should loose for you? Bar-Aba, or Eshu {Y’shu}, who is called Meshikha {The Anointed One}?”

ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܦܝܠܛܘܣ ܕܡܢ ܚܣܡܐ ܐܫܠܡܘܗܝ
18 For, Pilatus {Pilate} was realizing that from envy they had handed Him over.

ܟܕ ܝܬܒ ܕܝܢ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܥܠ ܒܝܡ ܕܝܠܗ ܫܠܚܬ ܠܗ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܘܐܡܪܐ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܠܟ ܘܠܗܘ ܙܕܝܩܐ ܣܓܝ ܓܝܪ ܚܫܬ ܒܚܠܡܝ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܡܛܠܬܗ
19 Now, while the Higmuna {the Governor} was sitting on the Biym {the Judgment-Seat}, his wife sent {i.e. sent a message} to him, and said unto him, “Have nothing to do with that Zadiyqa {Righteous Man}, for, I have suffered greatly in my dream today because of him.”

ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܐܦܝܣܘ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܕܢܫܐܠܘܢ ܠܒܪ ܐܒܐ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܘܒܕܘܢ
20 But, the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs} and the Qashishe {the Elders} persuaded the crowds to ask for Bar-Aba {the son of the father}, but, that they might destroy Eshu {Y’shu}.

ܘܥܢܐ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܢ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܫܪܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܒܪ ܐܒܐ
21 And the Higmuna {the Governor} answered, and said unto them, “Whom do you desire that I should loose unto you from these two?” Then they said “Bar-Aba!”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܝܠܛܘܣ ܘܠܝܫܘܥ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܢܐ ܐܥܒܕ ܠܗ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܢܙܕܩܦ
22 Pilatus {Pilate} said unto them, “And Eshu {Y’shu}, who is called Meshikha {The Anointed One}, what should I do unto him?” They all said, “He should be crucified!”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܝܠܛܘܣ ܡܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܝܫ ܥܒܕ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܩܥܘ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܢܙܕܩܦ
23 Pilatus {Pilate} said unto them, “What actual evil has he done?” But, they cried out exceedingly, and said, “He should be crucified!”

ܦܝܠܛܘܣ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܡܘܬܪ ܐܠܐ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܪܘܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܫܩܠ ܡܝܐ ܐܫܝܓ ܐܝܕܘܗܝ ܠܥܝܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܚܣܝ ܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܕܡܗ ܕܗܢܐ ܙܕܝܩܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܕܥܘܢ
24 Now when Pilatus {Pilate} saw that nothing helped, but rather, the uproar was increasing, he took water and washed his hands in sight of the kensha {the crowd}, and he said, “I am innocent of the blood of this Zadiyqa {Righteous Man}, you will decide it!”

ܘܥܢܘ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܕܡܗ ܥܠܝܢ ܘܥܠ ܒܢܝܢ
25 And all the Ama {the People} answered, and said, “His blood be on us, and upon our sons {i.e. our children}!”

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܪܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܒܪ ܐܒܐ ܘܢܓܕ ܒܦܪܓܠܐ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܫܠܡܗ ܕܢܙܕܩܦ
26 Then he loosed Bar-Aba {the son of the father} unto them, and scourged Eshu {Y’shu} with whips, and handed Him over so that He would be crucified.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܣܛܪܛܝܘܛܐ ܕܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܕܒܪܘܗܝ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܠܦܪܛܘܪܝܢ ܘܟܢܫܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܟܠܗ ܐܣܦܝܪ
27 Then the soldiers of the Higmuna {the Governor} led Eshu {Y’shu} away unto The Praetorium {The Judgment Hall}, and the whole cohort gathered against Him.

ܘܐܫܠܚܘܗܝ ܘܐܠܒܫܘܗܝ ܟܠܡܝܣ ܕܙܚܘܪܝܬܐ
28 And they stripped Him and put a robe of scarlet on Him.

ܘܓܕܠܘ ܟܠܝܠܐ ܕܥܘܙܢܝܐ ܘܣܡܘ ܒܪܫܗ ܘܩܢܝܐ ܒܝܡܝܢܗ ܘܒܪܟܘ ܥܠ ܒܘܪܟܝܗܘܢ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܘܡܒܙܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܫܠܡ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ
29 And they wove a crown of auznaye {thorns} and put it upon His head, and a qanya {a cane/reed} in His right hand. And they bowed down upon their knees before Him, and they were mocking at Him and saying, “Shlam Malka d’Yehudaye {Peace, King of the Judeans/Jews}.”

ܘܪܩܘ ܒܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܘܫܩܠܘ ܩܢܝܐ ܘܡܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܥܠ ܪܫܗ
30 And they spit in His face, and took a qanya {a cane} and were striking Him on His head.

ܘܟܕ ܒܙܚܘ ܒܗ ܐܫܠܚܘܗܝ ܟܠܡܝܣ ܘܐܠܒܫܘܗܝ ܢܚܬܘܗܝ ܘܐܘܒܠܘܗܝ ܕܢܙܕܩܦ
31 And after they had mocked at Him, they stripped off the robe and put His garments on, and led Him away to be crucified.

ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩܝܢ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܓܒܪܐ ܩܘܪܝܢܝܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܠܗܢܐ ܫܚܪܘ ܕܢܫܩܘܠ ܙܩܝܦܗ
32 And while they were going out, they found a gabra Qurinaya {a Cyrenian man}, whose name was Shimeun {Simeon}. This one they compelled that he should carry Zaqiypheh {His Cross}.

ܘܐܬܘ ܠܕܘܟܬܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܓܓܘܠܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܡܬܦܫܩܐ ܩܪܩܦܬܐ
33 And they came unto the place which is called Galgultha, that is interpreted, Qarqaphtha {The Skull}.

ܘܝܗܒܘ ܠܗ ܕܢܫܬܐ ܚܠܐ ܕܚܠܝܛ ܒܡܪܪܬܐ ܘܛܥܡ ܘܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܠܡܫܬܐ
34 And they gave unto Him khala {vinegar/soured wine} that was mixed with maratha {gall} to drink. And He tasted it, and He didn’t want to drink it.

ܘܟܕ ܙܩܦܘܗܝ ܦܠܓܘ ܢܚܬܘܗܝ ܒܦܣܐ
35 And when they crucified Him, they divided His garments by lot.

ܘܝܬܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܢܛܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܬܡܢ
36 And they were sitting down and watching Him there.

ܘܣܡܘ ܠܥܠ ܡܢ ܪܫܗ ܥܠܬܐ ܕܡܘܬܗ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܗܢܘ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ
37 And they placed over His head the cause of His death, in writing, ‘Hanu Eshu Malka d’Yehudaye {This is Y’shu, The King of the Judeans/Jews}.’

ܘܐܙܕܩܦܘ ܥܡܗ ܬܪܝܢ ܠܣܛܝܐ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܗ ܘܚܕ ܡܢ ܣܡܠܗ
38 And two staye {thieves} were crucified with Him, one on His right, and one on His left.

ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܓܕܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܘܡܢܝܕܝܢ ܪܫܝܗܘܢ
39 Then those who were passing by were blaspheming against Him, and shaking their heads.

ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܣܬܪ ܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܒܢܐ ܠܗ ܠܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܦܨܐ ܢܦܫܟ ܐܢ ܒܪܗ ܐܢܬ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܚܘܬ ܡܢ ܙܩܝܦܐ
40 And they were saying, “You who destroys The Temple and rebuilds it in three days, deliver naphshak {your soul/yourself} if you are The Son of Alaha {God}, and come down from zaqiypha {the cross}.”

ܗܟܘܬ ܐܦ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܡܒܙܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡ ܣܦܪܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ
41 Likewise, the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs} were also mocking, together with the Saphre {the Scribes}, and the Qashishe {the Elders}, and the Phrishe {the Pharisees}.

ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܚܝ ܢܦܫܗ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܚܝܘ ܐܢ ܡܠܟܗ ܗܘ ܕܝܣܪܝܠ ܢܚܘܬ ܗܫܐ ܡܢ ܙܩܝܦܐ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܘܢܗܝܡܢ ܒܗ
42 And they were saying, “He saved others, but he isn’t able to save his soul {himself}. If he is The King of IysraIyl {Israel}, let him now come down from the zaqiypha {the cross}, so that we may see it and we may believe in him.

ܬܟܝܠ ܥܠ ܐܠܗܐ ܢܦܪܩܝܘܗܝ ܗܫܐ ܐܢ ܨܒܐ ܒܗ ܐܡܪ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܪܗ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
43 He trusted on Alaha {God}, let Him save him now, if He is pleased with him. For, he said that, ‘I am The Son of Alaha {God}.’”

ܗܟܘܬ ܐܦ ܓܝܣܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܙܕܩܦܘ ܥܡܗ ܡܚܣܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ
44 Likewise, even those gayase {robbers} who were crucified with Him, were reproaching Him.

ܡܢ ܫܬ ܫܥܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܗܘܐ ܚܫܘܟܐ ܥܠ ܟܠܗ ܐܪܥܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܥܐ ܬܫܥ
45 Now, from the sixth hour {i.e. Noon} there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour {i.e. 3pm}.

ܘܠܐܦܝ ܬܫܥ ܫܥܝܢ ܩܥܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܝܠ ܐܝܠ ܠܡܢܐ ܫܒܩܬܢܝ
46 And about the ninth hour, Eshu {Y’shu} cried out in a qala rama {a loud voice}, and said, “Iyl! Iyl! Lamana Shabaqthani {My God! My God! Why have you left Me}!?”

ܐܢܫܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܬܡܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܗܢܐ ܠܐܠܝܐ ܩܪܐ
47 Now, some from those who were standing there, when they heard it, were saying, “This one calls for EliYa {Elijah}.”

ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܪܗܛ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܘܫܩܠ ܐܣܦܘܓܐ ܘܡܠܗ ܚܠܐ ܘܣܡܗ ܒܩܢܝܐ ܘܡܫܩܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ
48 And at that moment, one from them ran and took an espuga {a sponge} and filled it with khala {vinegar} and put it on a qanya {a cane/a reed}, and was offering a drink to Him.

ܫܪܟܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܫܒܘܩܘ ܢܚܙܐ ܐܢ ܐܬܐ ܐܠܝܐ ܠܡܦܪܩܗ
49 But, the rest were saying, “Leave him, let’s see if EliYa {Elijah} comes to save him.”

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܬܘܒ ܩܥܐ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܫܒܩ ܪܘܚܗ
50 Then He, Eshu {Y’shu}, again cried out with a loud voice and gave up His spirit.

ܘܡܚܕܐ ܐܦܝ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܗܝܟܠܐ ܐܨܛܪܝ ܠܬܪܝܢ ܡܢ ܠܥܠ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܬܚܬ ܘܐܪܥܐ ܐܬܬܙܝܥܬ ܘܟܐܦܐ ܐܨܛܪܝ
51 And immediately, the curtains {lit. the door faces} of The Temple were split into two, from above to below. And the ground was shaken, and the kephe {the rocks} were split.

ܘܒܝܬ ܩܒܘܪܐ ܐܬܦܬܚܘ ܘܦܓܪܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܕܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܫܟܝܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܩܡܘ
52 And the beth qabure {the tomb houses} were opened, and many bodies of The Qadishe {The Holy Ones} who were asleep, arose,

ܘܢܦܩܘ ܘܒܬܪ ܩܝܡܬܗ ܥܠܘ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܩܕܝܫܬܐ ܘܐܬܚܙܝܘ ܠܣܓܝܐܐ
53 and went out. And after His resurrection they entered into The Holy City, and appeared unto many.

ܩܢܛܪܘܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܕܥܡܗ ܕܢܛܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܟܕ ܚܙܘ ܙܘܥܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܘܝ ܕܚܠܘ ܛܒ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܗܢܐ ܒܪܗ ܗܘܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
54 Now, the Qentruna {the Centurion/the Captain of a thousand}, and those with him who were guarding Eshu {Y’shu}, when they saw the zua {the earthquake} and those things that had occurred, they were very afraid and said, “Shariraiyth {Truly} this was The Son of Alaha {God}!”

ܐܝܬ ܗܘܝ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܢܫܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܗܘܝ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܩܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܝ ܗܘܝ ܒܬܪܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܡܫܡܫܢ ܗܘܝ ܠܗ
55 Now, there were also many women there, who were looking from afar, those who had followed Eshu {Y’shu} from Galila {Galilee} and had been ministering unto Him.

ܕܚܕܐ ܡܢܗܝܢ ܡܪܝܡ ܡܓܕܠܝܬܐ ܘܡܪܝܡ ܐܡܗ ܕܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܕܝܘܣܐ ܘܐܡܗܘܢ ܕܒܢܝ ܙܒܕܝ
56 One of them was Maryam Magdalaytha {Mary of Magdala}, and Maryam the mother of Yaqub {James} and of Yusi {Joses}, and the mother of the sons of Zabday {Zebedee}.

ܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܪܡܫܐ ܐܬܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܥܬܝܪܐ ܡܢ ܪܡܬܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܝܘܣܦ ܕܐܦ ܗܘ ܐܬܬܠܡܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܝܫܘܥ
57 Now, when it became ramsha {evening}, a rich man came from Ramtha, whose name was Yuseph {Joseph}, he whom also was a Disciple of Eshu {Y’shu}.

ܗܢܐ ܩܪܒ ܠܘܬ ܦܝܠܛܘܣ ܘܫܐܠ ܦܓܪܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܘܦܩܕ ܦܝܠܛܘܣ ܕܢܬܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܦܓܪܐ
58 This one drew near to Pilatus {Pilate} and asked for the body of Eshu {Y’shu}. And Pilatus {Pilate} commanded that the body should be given unto him.

ܘܫܩܠܗ ܝܘܣܦ ܠܦܓܪܐ ܘܟܪܟܗ ܒܚܝܨܐ ܕܟܬܢܐ ܢܩܕܐ
59 And Yuseph {Joseph} took the body and wrapped it in a khayatsa {a shroud} of pure linen.

ܘܣܡܗ ܒܒܝܬ ܩܒܘܪܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܕܝܠܗ ܕܢܩܝܪ ܒܟܐܦܐ ܘܥܓܠܘ ܟܐܦܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܐܪܡܝܘ ܥܠ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܩܒܘܪܐ ܘܐܙܠܘ
60 And he placed it in his own new beth qabura {tomb house}, which was hewn in rock. And they rolled a large rock and placed it upon the entrance of the beth qabura {the tomb house}, and departed.

ܐܝܬ ܗܘܝ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܡܪܝܡ ܡܓܕܠܝܬܐ ܘܡܪܝܡ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܕܝܬܒܢ ܗܘܝ ܠܩܘܒܠܗ ܕܩܒܪܐ
61 Now, there were there Maryam Magdalaytha {Mary of Magdala}, and the other Maryam {Mary}, who were sitting opposite of the tomb.

ܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܚܪ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܒܬܪ ܥܪܘܒܬܐ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܦܪܝܫܐ ܠܘܬ ܦܝܠܛܘܣ
62 Then, the next day, which was after rubtha {the preparation day}, the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs}, and the Phrishe {the Pharisees}, gathered with Pilatus {Pilate}.

ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܪܢ ܐܬܕܟܪܢ ܕܗܘ ܡܛܥܝܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܟܕ ܚܝ ܕܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܩܐܡ ܐܢܐ
63 And they were saying unto him, “Our lord, we remembered that that impostor would say, while he was alive, that, ‘From after three days, I will arise.’

ܦܩܘܕ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܙܕܗܪܝܢ ܒܩܒܪܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܬܠܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܐܬܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܢܓܢܒܘܢܝܗܝ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܘܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܥܡܐ ܕܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܩܡ ܘܬܗܘܐ ܛܘܥܝܝ ܐܚܪܝܬܐ ܒܝܫܐ ܡܢ ܩܕܡܝܬܐ
64 Command, therefore, that they take precautions at the tomb until three days, lest his disciples come steal him in the night and say unto the Ama {the People} that he has risen from the place of the dead. And the last deception might become worse than the first.”

ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܝܠܛܘܣ ܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܩܣܛܘܢܪܐ ܙܠܘ ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
65 Pilatus {Pilate} said unto them, “You have qestunare {guards}. Go and take precautions as you know how.”

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܙܠܘ ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܒܩܒܪܐ ܘܚܬܡܘ ܟܐܦܐ ܗܝ ܥܡ ܩܣܛܘܢܪܐ
66 Then they departed, and took precautions at qabra {the tomb} with those guards, and sealed the stone.

1 Now, in the ramsha {the evening} of the Shabtha {the Sabbath/the 7th day of the week}, which is the dawn of the khad shaba {the 1st day of the week}, Maryam Magdalaytha {Mary of Magdala} and the other Maryam {Mary} came, so that they might see the qabra {the tomb}.

ܘܗܐ ܙܘܥܐ ܪܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܢܚܬ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܩܪܒ ܥܓܠ ܟܐܦܐ ܡܢ ܬܪܥܐ ܘܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܠܝܗ
2 And behold, a great earthquake happened, for, a Malaka d’MarYa {a Heavenly Messenger of The Lord-YHWH} descended from the Shmaya {the Heavens}, and having approached, rolled away the kepha {the rock} from the entrance, and he was sitting on it.

ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܚܙܘܗ ܐܝܟ ܒܪܩܐ ܘܠܒܘܫܗ ܚܘܪ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܬܠܓܐ
3 Now, his appearance was like barqa {lightning}, and his garment was white like thalga {snow}.

ܘܡܢ ܕܚܠܬܗ ܐܬܬܙܝܥܘ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܢܛܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܗܘܘ ܐܝܟ ܡܝܬܐ
4 And from the fear of him, those who were guarding, trembled, and they became like the dead.

ܥܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܢܫܐ ܐܢܬܝܢ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠܢ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܝܫܘܥ ܕܐܙܕܩܦ ܒܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܝܢ
5 Then The Malaka {The Heavenly Messenger} answered and said unto the neshe {the women}, “You shouldn’t fear, for, I know that you seek Eshu {Y’shu}, who was crucified.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܬܢܢ ܩܡ ܠܗ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܬܝܝܢ ܚܙܝܝܢ ܕܘܟܬܐ ܕܣܝܡ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܡܪܢ
6 He isn’t here, for, He has risen as He said. Come see the place in which Maran {Our Lord} was placed.

ܘܙܠܝܢ ܒܥܓܠ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܩܡ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܗܐ ܩܕܡ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ ܬܡܢ ܬܚܙܘܢܝܗܝ ܗܐ ܐܡܪܬ ܠܟܝܢ
7 And go quickly and tell His Disciples that He has risen from the beth miythe {the place of the dead}. And behold He goes before you unto Galila {Galilee}. There you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.”

ܘܐܙܠܝܢ ܥܓܠ ܡܢ ܩܒܪܐ ܒܕܚܠܬܐ ܘܒܚܕܘܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܘܪܗܛܢ ܕܢܐܡܪܢ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
8 And they departed quickly from the qabra {the tomb}, with fear and with great joy, and they were running, so that they might tell His Disciples.

ܘܗܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܦܓܥ ܒܗܝܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܝܢ ܫܠܡ ܠܟܝܢ ܗܢܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܩܪܒ ܐܚܕ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܘܣܓܕܝܢ ܠܗ
9 And behold, Eshu {Y’shu} met up with them, and said unto them, “Shlam {Peace} be unto you.” Then they approached and took hold of His feet, and worshiped Him.

ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐ ܬܕܚܠܢ ܐܠܐ ܙܠܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܐܚܝ ܕܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܬܡܢ ܢܚܙܘܢܢܝ
10 Then Eshu {Y’shu} said unto them, “Don’t fear, but rather, go and tell My brothers to go unto Galila {Galilee}, and there they will see Me.”

ܟܕ ܐܙܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܩܣܛܘܢܪܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܠܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܗܘܐ
11 Now, when they had departed, some men came from those qestunare {guards}, unto the city, and told the Rabay Kahne {the Priest’s Chiefs} every thing that happened.

ܘܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܥܡ ܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܢܣܒܘ ܡܠܟܐ ܘܝܗܒܘ ܟܣܦܐ ܠܐ ܙܥܘܪ ܠܩܣܛܘܢܪܐ
12 And they were assembled with the Qashishe {the Elders}, and they took counsel, and they gave kespha {silver/money}, not a small amount, unto the qestunare {the soldiers}.

ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܕܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܐܬܘ ܓܢܒܘܗܝ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܟܕ ܕܡܟܝܢ ܚܢܢ
13 And they said unto them, “Say that his disciples came and stole him in the night while we were sleeping.

ܘܐܢ ܐܫܬܡܥܬ ܗܕܐ ܩܕܡ ܗܓܡܘܢܐ ܚܢܢ ܡܦܝܣܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܗ ܘܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܨܦܬܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ
14 And if this is heard before the Higmuna {the Governor}, we will persuade him, and we will not make trouble for you.”

ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܢܣܒܘ ܟܣܦܐ ܥܒܕܘ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܠܦܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܢܦܩܬ ܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܒܝܬ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܢܐ
15 So then when they had taken the kespha {the silver/money} they did as they had instructed them. And this word has gone out among the Yehudaye {the Judeans/Jews} until this day.

ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܚܕܥܣܪ ܐܙܠܘ ܠܓܠܝܠܐ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܐܝܟܐ ܕܘܥܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ
16 Now, The Eleven Talmiyde {Disciples} went unto Galila {Galilee}, unto the Tura {the Mountain} where Eshu {Y’shu} had appointed them.

ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܣܓܕܘ ܠܗ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܦܠܓܘ ܗܘܘ
17 And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him, but, some from them were doubtful.

ܘܩܪܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܠܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܬܝܗܒ ܠܝ ܟܠ ܫܘܠܛܢ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܒܐܪܥܐ ܘܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ ܐܒܝ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܡܫܕܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ
18 And Eshu {Y’shu} came and spoke with them, and said unto them, “All Authority is given unto Me in the Shmaya {the Heavens} and on the Ara {the Earth}, and as Abi {My Father} has sent Me, I also am sending you.

ܙܠܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܠܡܕܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܘܐܥܡܕܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܫܡ ܐܒܐ ܘܒܪܐ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
19 Go therefore, teach all the Amme {the Peoples/the Gentiles/the Nations}, and Immerse {Baptize} them in The Name of The Father, and of The Son, and of The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness/The Holy Spirit}.

ܘܐܠܦܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܢܛܪܘܢ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܦܩܕܬܟܘܢ ܘܗܐ ܐܢܐ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܐܢܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܫܘܠܡܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܐܡܝܢ
20 And teach them that they must observe all what I have Commanded you. And behold, I am with you all the days, until the end of the alma {the world}. Amiyn {Amen}.”​
