Chapter 1
ܦܘܠܘܣ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܩܪܝܐ ܘܫܠܝܚܐ ܕܐܬܦܪܫ ܠܐܘܢܓܠܝܘܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ
1 Paulus {Paul}, an Abda {a Slave/Servant} of Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}. A Qarya {a Called One}, and a Shlikha {a Sent One}, who has been separated unto The Evangeliun d’Alaha {The Good Message of God},

ܕܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܡܠܟ ܒܝܕ ܢܒܝܘܗܝ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܩܕܝܫܐ
2 who had formerly {lit. from before} promised through Nabiyuhe {His Prophets} in The Kathabe Qadishe {The Holy Scriptures},

ܥܠ ܒܪܗ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܝܠܕ ܒܒܣܪ ܡܢ ܙܪܥܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܕܘܝܕ
3 concerning His Son, who was begotten in the flesh from the seed of The House {i.e. The Family} of David,

ܘܐܬܝܕܥ ܒܪܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܚܝܠ ܘܒܪܘܚ ܩܕܘܫ ܕܩܡ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܪܢ
4 and was made known to be The Son of Alaha {God}, in Power, and in The Rukh Qadush {The Holy Spirit}, who raised Eshu Meshikha Maran {Y’shu, The Anointed One, Our Lord}, from the beth miythe {the house/abode of the dead}.

ܕܒܗ ܢܣܒܢ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܘܫܠܝܚܘܬܐ ܒܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܫܬܡܥܘܢ ܠܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܗ
5 Who, in Him, we have received Taybutha {Grace}, and a Shlikhutha {a sending forth} among all the Amme {the Nations/the Gentiles}, so that they might hear and respond to The Haymanutha d’Shmeh {The Faith of His Name};

ܕܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܩܪܝܐ ܒܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
6 which you also are The Qraya {The Called Ones} from them, in Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܒܪܗܘܡܝ ܚܒܝܒܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܩܪܝܐ ܘܩܕܝܫܐ ܫܠܡܐ ܘܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܥܡܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܒܘܢ ܘܡܢ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
7 Unto all who are in Ruhume {Rome}, Khabibuhi d’Alaha {Beloved Ones of God}; Qraya {Called Ones} and Qadishe {Holy Ones}: Shlama {Peace} and Taybutha {Grace} be with you, from Alaha Aba {God, Our Father}, and from Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

ܠܘܩܕܡ ܡܘܕܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܐܠܗܝ ܒܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܥܠ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܘܬܟܘܢ ܐܫܬܡܥܬ ܒܟܠܗ ܥܠܡܐ
8 First, I am giving thanks unto Alahi {My God}, through Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}, concerning you all, that Haymanuthkun {your Faith} is heard in all the alma {the world}.

ܣܗܕ ܗܘ ܠܝ ܓܝܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܠܗ ܡܫܡܫ ܐܢܐ ܒܪܘܚ ܒܐܘܢܓܠܝܘܢ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܕܠܐ ܫܠܘܐ ܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܡܬܕܟܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܨܠܘܬܝ
9 For, Alaha {God} is a witness for me, of whom I minister through The Rukh {The Spirit}, in The Evangeliun d’Breh {The Good Message of His Son}; that without ceasing, I am constantly remembering you in tsluthi {my prayers},

ܘܡܬܚܢܢ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܢ ܡܢ ܟܕܘ ܬܬܦܬܚ ܠܝ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܒܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ
10 and I supplicate, so that now there might open for me a way, by the will of Alaha {God}, so that I might come unto you,

ܡܛܠ ܕܛܒ ܣܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܚܙܝܟܘܢ ܘܐܬܠ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܕܪܘܚ ܕܒܗ ܬܫܬܪܪܘܢ
11 because, I am very desirous that I might see you, and give unto you The Mawhabutha d’Rukh {The Gift of The Spirit}, The One in whom you will be confirmed,

ܘܐܟܚܕܐ ܢܬܒܝܐ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܘܕܝܠܝ
12 and simultaneously be comforted in The Haymanutha {The Faith}; of yours and of mine.

ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܬܕܥܘܢ ܐܚܝ ܕܙܒܢܝܢ ܣܓܝܐܢ ܨܒܝܬ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܘܐܬܟܠܝܬ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܫܐ ܕܐܦ ܒܟܘܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܝ ܐܕܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܒܫܪܟܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ
13 Yet, I desire that you should know, my Brothers, that many times I have desired to come unto you, and have been held back until now, so that also among you will be fruit for me, as among the rest of the Amme {the Nations/Gentiles}:

ܝܘܢܝܐ ܘܒܪܒܪܝܐ ܚܟܝܡܐ ܘܣܟܠܐ ܕܠܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܚܝܒ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܟܪܙ
14 the Yunaye {the Greeks}, and the Barbraye {the Barbarians}, the wise and the foolish, that unto every man I am obligated that I should Proclaim,

ܘܗܟܢܐ ܡܬܚܦܛ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܦ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܒܪܗܘܡܝ ܐܣܒܪ
15 and thus I am eager that I also might Declare The Sabar {The Hope} unto you who are in Ruhume {Rome}.

ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܗܬ ܐܢܐ ܒܗ ܒܐܘܢܓܠܝܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܚܝܠܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܚܝܐ ܕܟܠ ܕܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܒܗ ܐܢ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܘܐܢ ܡܢ ܐܪܡܝܐ
16 For, I am not embarrassed by The Evangeliun {The Good Message}, because it is The Khayla {The Power} of Alaha {God} unto Khaye {Life} of all who believe in Him; if from the Yehudaye {the Judeans} first; and if from the Armaye {the Arameans}.

ܟܐܢܘܬܗ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܗ ܡܬܓܠܝܐ ܡܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܠܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܟܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܢܚܐ
17 For, The Righteousness of Alaha {God} is manifested through it, from Haymanutha {Faith} unto Haymanutha {Faith}, as it is written, that “The Righteous, from Haymanutha {Faith}, will live.”

ܡܬܓܠܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܪܘܓܙܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܥܠ ܟܠܗ ܥܘܠܗܘܢ ܘܪܘܫܥܗܘܢ ܕܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܩܘܫܬܐ ܒܥܘܠܐ ܐܚܝܕܝܢ
18 For, The Wrath of Alaha {God} is revealed from the Shmaya {the Heavens} upon all the injustice and wickedness of the sons of men; those who have taken hold of The Truth through unrighteousness.

ܡܛܠ ܕܝܕܝܥܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܓܠܝܐ ܗܝ ܒܗܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܓܠܗ ܒܗܘܢ
19 Because, that which is known of Alaha {God} is revealed among them, for, Alaha {God} has revealed it in them.

ܟܣܝܬܗ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܢ ܬܪܡܝܬܗ ܕܥܠܡܐ ܠܒܪܝܬܗ ܒܣܘܟܠܐ ܡܬܚܙܝܢ ܘܚܝܠܗ ܘܐܠܗܘܬܗ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܦܩ ܒܪܘܚ
20 For, the hidden things of Alaha {God}, from the foundations of the world, are shown unto His creatures with understanding, and also His Power, and Alahutheh {His Divinity/Divine Nature} which is Eternal, so that they are without a defense {or, an excuse},

ܡܛܠ ܕܝܕܥܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܠܐܠܗܐ ܫܒܚܘܗܝ ܘܐܘܕܝܘ ܠܗ ܐܠܐ ܐܣܬܪܩܘ ܒܡܚܫܒܬܗܘܢ ܘܐܬܚܫܟ ܠܒܗܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܣܬܟܠ
21 because, those who knew Alaha {God}, and didn’t glorify Him and give thanks unto Him as Alaha {God}, but rather, were vain in their thoughts, and their hearts grew dark, so that they didn’t understand,

ܘܟܕ ܣܒܪܝܢ ܒܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܕܚܟܝܡܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܫܛܘ ܠܗܘܢ
22 and while they were thinking in their souls that they were wise, they were given unto foolishness,

ܘܚܠܦܘ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܚܒܠ ܒܕܡܘܬܐ ܕܨܠܡܐ ܕܒܪܢܫܐ ܕܡܬܚܒܠ ܘܒܕܡܘܬܐ ܕܦܪܚܬܐ ܘܕܐܪܒܥܬ ܪܓܠܝܗ ܘܕܪܚܫܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ
23 and they changed The Theshbukhtheh d’Alaha {The Glory of God}, who isn’t corruptible {i.e. doesn’t change}, into the likeness of the figure of a son of man, who is corruptible, and into the form of birds, and of the four-footed, and also of the creeping things of the Ara {the Earth}.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܫܠܡ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܪܓܝܓܬܐ ܛܡܐܬܐ ܕܠܒܗܘܢ ܕܢܨܥܪܘܢ ܦܓܪܝܗܘܢ ܒܗܘܢ
24 Because of this, Alaha {God} delivered them unto the unclean desires of their hearts, who debase their bodies with them,

ܘܚܠܦܘ ܫܪܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܟܕܒܘܬܐ ܘܕܚܠܘ ܘܫܡܫܘ ܠܒܪܝܬܐ ܛܒ ܡܢ ܕܠܒܪܘܝܗܝܢ ܕܠܗ ܬܫܒܚܢ ܘܒܘܪܟܢ ܠܥܠܡ ܥܠܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ
25 and they changed The Shrareh d’Alaha {The Truth of God} into a lie, and reverenced and ministered unto the creations more than The Creator of them, unto whom be Glory and Blessing, unto everlasting eternities. Amiyn {Amen}.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܫܠܡ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܟܐܒܐ ܕܨܥܪܐ ܢܩܒܬܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܚܠܦ ܚܫܚܬܐ ܕܟܝܢܗܝܢ ܘܒܡܕܡ ܕܠܐ ܡܟܢ ܐܬܚܫܚ
26 Because of this, Alaha {God} delivered them unto disgraceful diseases, for, women changed the use of their natures, and into the thing which is not naturally useful,

ܘܬܘܒ ܐܦ ܕܟܪܝܗܘܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܫܒܩܘ ܚܫܚܬܐ ܕܟܝܢܐ ܕܢܩܒܬܐ ܘܐܫܬܪܚܘ ܒܪܓܬܐ ܚܕ ܥܠ ܚܕ ܘܕܟܪܐ ܥܠ ܕܟܪܐ ܒܗܬܬܐ ܥܒܕܘ ܘܦܘܪܥܢܐ ܕܙܕܩ ܗܘܐ ܠܛܥܝܘܬܗܘܢ ܒܩܢܘܡܗܘܢ ܩܒܠܘܗܝ
27 and furthermore, even males thus left the use of the nature of females, and burned with lust, one upon another, and male was upon male. In shame they acted, and they were rightly recompensed for their error, receiving it in qnumhun {themselves/their persons}.

ܘܐܝܟ ܕܠܐ ܕܢܘ ܒܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܕܢܕܥܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܐܫܠܡ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܡܕܥܐ ܕܣܪܝܩܘܬܐ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܠܐ ܘܠܐ
28 And as they didn’t judge in their souls that they should know Alaha {God}, Alaha {God} delivered them unto the knowledge of vanity, so that they might perform the thing which isn’t proper,

ܟܕ ܡܠܝܢ ܟܠ ܥܘܠܘܬܐ ܘܙܢܝܘܬܐ ܘܡܪܝܪܘܬܐ ܘܒܝܫܘܬܐ ܘܥܠܘܒܘܬܐ ܘܚܣܡܐ ܘܩܛܠܐ ܘܚܪܝܢܐ ܘܢܟܠܐ ܘܡܚܫܒܬܐ ܒܝܫܬܐ
29 while full of every depravity, and fornication, and bitterness, and evil, and fraud, and envy, and murder, and contention, and deceit, and evil thoughts,

ܘܪܛܢܐ ܘܡܐܟܠ ܩܪܨܐ ܘܣܢܝܐܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܡܨܥܪܢܐ ܚܬܝܪܐ ܫܒܗܪܢܐ ܡܫܟܚܝ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܚܣܝܪܝ ܪܥܝܢܐ ܕܠܐܒܗܝܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܬܛܦܝܣܝܢ
30 and complainers, and accusers, and hateful towards Alaha {God}, revilers, proud, boastful; they invent evil, they lack reason; who are not obedient unto their fathers {i.e. their parents},

ܘܕܩܝܡܐ ܠܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܚܘܒܐ ܘܠܐ ܫܝܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܪܚܡܐ ܐܝܬ ܒܗܘܢ
31 and for whom a covenant is nothing, and neither love, and neither peace, and neither is mercy in them.

ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܟܕ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܕܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܟ ܗܠܝܢ ܣܥܪܝܢ ܠܡܘܬܐ ܡܚܝܒ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܠܗܝܢ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܡܫܬܘܬܦܝܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܥܒܕܝܢ
32 Who, while knowing The Judgment of Alaha {God}; that unto those who do as these, are condemned unto death; they are not only doing them, but also, are partners for those who do them.

Chapter 2
ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܠܝܬ ܠܟ ܡܦܩ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܐܘ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܕܐܢ ܚܒܪܗ ܒܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܕܐܢ ܐܢܬ ܚܒܪܟ ܢܦܫܟ ܗܘ ܡܚܝܒ ܐܢܬ ܘܐܦ ܐܢܬ ܓܝܪ ܕܕܐܢ ܐܢܬ ܒܗܝܢ ܗܘ ܡܬܗܦܟ ܐܢܬ
1 Because of this, there isn’t for you an excuse {lit. a defense in spirit/breath}, O son of man who judges his neighbor, for, in that judgment of that one, your neighbor, you are also condemning your own soul, for, you who judge are engaged in the very same things.

ܘܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܕܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܩܘܫܬܐ ܥܠ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܗܠܝܢ ܡܬܗܦܟܝܢ
2 And we know that there exists The Judgment of Alaha {God}, in truth, concerning those who are engaging in these things.

ܡܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܬܚܫܒ ܐܢܬ ܐܘ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܕܕܐܢ ܐܢܬ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܗܠܝܢ ܡܬܗܦܟܝܢ ܟܕ ܐܦ ܐܢܬ ܒܗܝܢ ܡܬܗܦܟ ܐܢܬ ܕܐܢܬ ܬܥܪܘܩ ܡܢ ܕܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
3 But, what do you think, O son of man; you who are judging those who are engaging in these things, while you also are engaged in them; that you will escape from The Judgment of Alaha {God}?

ܐܘ ܥܠ ܥܘܬܪܐ ܕܒܣܝܡܘܬܗ ܘܥܠ ܡܓܪܬ ܪܘܚܗ ܘܥܠ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܝܗܒ ܠܟ ܡܡܪܚ ܐܢܬ ܘܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܬ ܕܒܣܝܡܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܗܘ ܡܝܬܝܐ ܠܟ
4 Or, are you presumptuous concerning the wealth of His leniency, and concerning His long-suffering Spirit, and concerning the opportunity that has been given to you? And do you not know that the leniency of Alaha {God} is leading you unto repentance?

ܐܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܩܫܝܘܬ ܠܒܟ ܕܠܐ ܬܐܒ ܣܐܡ ܐܢܬ ܠܟ ܣܝܡܬܐ ܕܪܘܓܙܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܪܘܓܙܐ ܘܠܓܠܝܢܐ ܕܕܝܢܐ ܟܐܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
5 But, because of the hardness of your heart, which isn’t repentant, you place for yourself a store of wrath unto The Day of Wrath, and unto the manifestation of the just Judgment of Alaha {God};

ܗܘ ܕܦܪܥ ܠܟܠܢܫ ܐܝܟ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ
6 He who repays unto everyone according to their works.

ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܡܣܝܒܪܢܘܬܐ ܕܥܒܕܐ ܛܒܐ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܘܐܝܩܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܬܚܒܠܢܘܬܐ ܒܥܝܢ ܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
7 To those who by the patient endurance of good works are seeking glory and honor and incorruptibility; unto them are given Lives which are eternal.

ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܨܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܡܬܛܦܝܣܝܢ ܠܫܪܪܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܥܘܠܐ ܡܬܛܦܝܣܝܢ ܢܦܪܘܥ ܐܢܘܢ ܪܘܓܙܐ ܘܚܡܬܐ
8 But, those who are obstinate, and not reconciled unto The Shrara {The Truth}, but rather, are reconciled unto unrighteousness; are repaid anger and wrath,

ܘܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܘܛܘܪܦܐ ܠܟܠ ܒܪܢܫ ܕܦܠܚ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܠܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܘܠܐܪܡܝܐ
9 and affliction and trouble, unto every son of man who works evil; unto the Yehudaye {the Judeans} first, and unto the Armaye {the Arameans},

ܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܐܝܩܪܐ ܘܫܠܡܐ ܠܟܠ ܕܦܠܚ ܛܒܬܐ ܠܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܘܠܐܪܡܝܐ
10 but, glory, and honor, and peace, unto all who works good things; unto the Yehudaye {the Judeans} first, and unto the Armaye {the Arameans},

ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܬ ܡܣܒ ܒܐܦܐ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ
11 for, there isn’t partiality among persons with Alaha {God}.

ܐܝܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܕܠܐ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܚܛܘ ܐܦ ܕܠܐ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܢܐܒܕܘܢ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܢܡܘܣܐ ܚܛܘ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܢܬܬܕܝܢܘܢ
12 For, those who sin, who are without The Namusa {The Law}, also will perish without The Namusa {The Law}, and those who sin, who are with The Namusa {The Law}, they will be judged from The Namusa {The Law}.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܫܡܘܥܘܗܝ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܟܐܢܝܢ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܠܐ ܥܒܘܕܘܗܝ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܡܙܕܕܩܝܢ
13 For, it isn’t the hearers of The Namusa {The Law} who are upright before Alaha {God}, but rather, the doers of The Namusa {The Law}, who are the righteous ones.

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܥܡܡܐ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܠܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܟܝܢܗܘܢ ܢܥܒܕܘܢ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܟܕ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܢܡܘܣܐ
14 For, if the Amme {the Gentiles}, unto whom isn’t The Namusa {The Law}, from nature perform The Namusa {The Law}, they, while not having The Law, have become The Law unto their own souls,

ܘܗܢܘܢ ܡܚܘܝܢ ܥܒܕܗ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܟܕ ܟܬܝܒ ܥܠ ܠܒܗܘܢ ܘܡܣܗܕܐ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܬܐܪܬܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܡܚܫܒܬܗܘܢ ܡܟܘܢܢ ܐܘ ܢܦܩܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܠܚܕܕܐ
15 and they display the performance of The Namusa {The Law}, when it is written on their hearts, and their consciences are testifying concerning them, while their thoughts are rebuking or defending their spirits, unto one another,

ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܕܐܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܟܣܝܬܐ ܕܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܐܘܢܓܠܝܘܢ ܕܝܠܝ ܒܝܕ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
16 in The Day that Alaha {God} will judge the secrets of the sons of men, according to my own Evangeliun {Good Message}, by means of Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

ܐܢ ܐܢܬ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܡܬܩܪܐ ܐܢܬ ܘܡܬܬܢܝܚ ܐܢܬ ܥܠ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܘܡܫܬܒܗܪ ܐܢܬ ܒܐܠܗܐ
17 Yet, if you, you who are called a Yehudaya {a Judean}, and you who are resting upon The Namusa {The Law}, and you who boast in Alaha {God},

ܕܝܕܥ ܐܢܬ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܘܦܪܫ ܐܢܬ ܘܠܝܬܐ ܕܝܠܝܦ ܐܢܬ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ
18 that you know His will, and that you distinguish that which is proper; you which are taught from The Namusa {The Law},

ܘܐܬܬܟܠܬ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܟ ܕܡܕܒܪܢܐ ܐܢܬ ܕܥܘܝܪܐ ܘܢܘܗܪܐ ܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܒܚܫܘܟܐ
19 and have confidence concerning your soul that you are a guide of the blind, and a light of those who are in darkness,

ܘܪܕܘܝܐ ܕܚܣܝܪܝ ܪܥܝܢܐ ܘܡܠܦܢܐ ܕܛܠܝܐ ܘܐܝܬ ܠܟ ܕܘܡܝܐ ܕܝܕܥܬܐ ܘܕܫܪܪܐ ܒܢܡܘܣܐ
20 and an instructor of those deficient of understanding, and a teacher of the young, and are for the form of knowledge, and truth in The Namusa {The Law};

ܐܢܬ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܡܠܦ ܐܢܬ ܠܐܚܪܢܐ ܠܢܦܫܟ ܠܐ ܡܠܦ ܐܢܬ ܘܕܡܟܪܙ ܐܢܬ ܕܠܐ ܢܓܢܒܘܢ ܐܢܬ ܓܢܒ ܐܢܬ
21 you therefore, you which are teaching others, do you not teach your own soul? And you who are preaching that “you shall not steal,” do you steal?

ܘܕܐܡܪ ܐܢܬ ܕܠܐ ܢܓܘܪܘܢ ܐܢܬ ܓܐܪ ܐܢܬ ܘܐܢܬ ܕܫܐܛ ܐܢܬ ܦܬܟܪܐ ܡܚܠܨ ܐܢܬ ܒܝܬ ܡܩܕܫܐ
22 And you who say, “you shall not commit adultery,” do you commit adultery? And you, you who despise idols, do you rob The Holy Place?

ܘܐܢܬ ܕܡܫܬܒܗܪ ܐܢܬ ܒܢܡܘܣܐ ܒܗܘ ܕܥܒܪ ܐܢܬ ܥܠ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܡܨܥܪ ܐܢܬ
23 And you who glory in The Namusa {The Law}, in that which you transgress concerning The Law, is it unto Alaha {God} that you are despising?

ܫܡܗ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܛܠܬܟܘܢ ܗܘ ܡܬܓܕܦ ܒܝܬ ܥܡܡܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ
24 For, because of you, “The Name of Alaha {God} is blasphemed among the Amme {the Nations/the Gentiles},” according to that which is written.

ܓܙܘܪܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܗܢܝܐ ܐܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܬܓܡܘܪ ܐܢ ܬܥܒܪ ܠܟ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܓܙܘܪܬܟ ܗܘܬ ܠܗ ܥܘܪܠܘܬܐ
25 For, circumcision is beneficial, if you fulfill The Namusa {The Law}. But, if you turn away from The Law, your circumcision becomes unto you, uncircumcision.

ܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܥܘܪܠܘܬܐ ܬܛܪ ܦܘܩܕܢܗ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܠܐ ܗܐ ܥܘܪܠܘܬܐ ܡܬܚܫܒܐ ܠܗ ܓܙܘܪܬܐ
26 But, if it is that the uncircumcised observe the command of The Namusa {The Law}, behold, wouldn’t the uncircumcised be reckoned for the circumcised?

ܘܬܕܘܢ ܥܘܪܠܘܬܐ ܕܡܢ ܟܝܢܗ ܓܡܪܐ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܠܟ ܕܒܟܬܒܐ ܘܒܓܙܘܪܬܐ ܥܒܪ ܐܢܬ ܥܠ ܢܡܘܣܐ
27 And the uncircumcised, who from his nature, fulfills The Namusa {The Law}, will judge you; for you who, with The Scripture, and with circumcision, you transgress concerning The Namusa {The Law}!

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܢ ܕܒܓܠܝܐ ܗܘ ܗܘ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܡܬܚܙܝܐ ܒܒܣܪܐ ܓܙܘܪܬܐ
28 For, it isn’t he who is a Yehudaya {a Judean/a Jew}, that one who is so bodily {i.e. physically}; also, neither is that which is seen in the flesh {i.e. physically}, circumcision,

ܐܠܐ ܗܘ ܗܘ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܒܟܣܝܐ ܗܘ ܘܓܙܘܪܬܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܕܠܒܐ ܗܝ ܒܪܘܚ ܘܠܐ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܬܫܒܘܚܬܗ ܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ
29 but rather, that one is a Yehudaya {a Judean/a Jew} who is so inwardly, and circumcision is that which is of the heart, through The Rukh {The Spirit} and not through The Scripture, whose praise isn’t from the sons of men, but rather, from Alaha {God}.

Chapter 3
ܡܢܐ ܗܝ ܗܟܝܠ ܝܬܝܪܘܬܗ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܘ ܡܢܐ ܝܘܬܪܢܗ ܕܓܙܘܪܬܐ
1 What then is the superiority of the Yehudaya {the Judean/the Jew}, or what is the advantage of Circumcision?

ܣܓܝ ܒܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܕܐܬܗܝܡܢܘ ܡܠܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ
2 Much in every thing: Firstly, that they were entrusted with The Words of Alaha {God},

ܐܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܠܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܕܠܡܐ ܒܕܠܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܛܠܘ
3 for, if those from them didn’t believe, perhaps they made The Haymanutheh {The Faith of God} invalid through their unbelief?

ܚܣ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܓܝܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܫܪܝܪܐ ܘܟܠ ܒܪܢܫ ܕܓܠ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܬܗܘܐ ܟܐܝܢ ܒܡܠܝܟ ܘܬܙܟܐ ܟܕ ܕܝܢܝܢ ܠܟ
4 Far be it! For, Alaha {God} is true, and every son of man is a liar, as it is written, that “You will be just in Your words, and be innocent when You are judged.”

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܥܘܠܢ ܟܐܢܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܩܝܡ ܡܢܐ ܢܐܡܪ ܠܡܐ ܥܘܠ ܗܘ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܡܝܬܐ ܪܘܓܙܗ ܐܝܟ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܗܘ ܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܐ
5 But, if our unrighteousness establishes The Kenutha d’Alaha {The Righteousness of God}, what will we say? Is Alaha {God} unrighteous that He brings His wrath? As a son of man I am speaking.

ܚܣ ܘܐܢ ܠܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܢܕܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܥܠܡܐ
6 Far be it! And if not, how would Alaha {God} judge the alma {the world}?

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܫܪܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܝܬܪ ܒܕܓܠܘܬܝ ܠܬܫܒܘܚܬܗ ܕܝܠܗ ܠܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܢܐ ܐܝܟ ܚܛܝܐ ܡܬܬܕܝܢ ܐܢܐ
7 For, if The Shrareh d’Alaha {The Truth of God} is advanced by my lie, for His own glory; why, therefore, am I, as a Khataye {a Sinner}, judged?

ܐܘ ܕܠܡܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܡܓܕܦܝܢ ܥܠܝܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܢܥܒܕ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܕܢܐܬܝܢ ܛܒܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܕܝܢܗܘܢ ܢܛܝܪ ܗܘ ܠܟܐܢܘܬܐ
8 Or, lest, as they revile concerning us, and are saying that we say, that “We should do evil, so that good might come.” The sentence of these is reserved for justice!

ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܚܝܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܝܬܝܪܐ ܕܩܕܡܢ ܦܣܩܢ ܥܠ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܥܠ ܐܪܡܝܐ ܕܬܚܝܬ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ
9 What then? Do we have superiority? What we formerly determined concerning the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} and concerning the Armaye {the Arameans}, is that all are under sin,

ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܠܝܬ ܟܐܢܐ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܚܕ
10 as it is written, that “none are righteous, not even one,

ܘܠܐ ܕܡܣܬܟܠ ܘܠܐ ܕܒܥܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ
11 and none who understand, and none who seek for Alaha {God}.

ܟܠܗܘܢ ܣܛܘ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܘܐܣܬܠܝܘ ܘܠܝܬ ܕܥܒܕ ܛܒܬܐ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܚܕ
12 All have turned aside, and together are rejected, and none who do good; not even one.

ܩܒܪܐ ܦܬܝܚܐ ܓܓܪܬܗܘܢ ܘܠܫܢܝܗܘܢ ܢܟܘܠܬܢܝܢ ܘܚܡܬܐ ܕܐܣܦܣ ܬܚܝܬ ܣܦܘܬܗܘܢ
13 Their throats are open graves, and their tongues are deceitful, and the venom of the snake is under their lips.

ܦܘܡܗܘܢ ܡܠܐ ܠܘܛܬܐ ܘܡܪܬܐ
14 Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness,

ܘܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܩܠܝܠܢ ܠܡܐܫܕ ܕܡܐ
15 and their feet are quick to shed blood;

ܫܚܩܐ ܘܕܘܘܢܐ ܒܐܘܪܚܬܗܘܢ
16 vexation and misery are in their ways,

ܘܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܫܠܡܐ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܘ
17 and The Way of Shlama {Peace} they haven’t known,

ܘܕܚܠܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܝܬ ܩܕܡ ܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ
18 and The Fear of Alaha {God} isn’t before their eyes.”

ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܐܡܪ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܢܡܘܣܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܕܟܠ ܦܘܡ ܢܣܬܟܪ ܘܥܠܡܐ ܟܠܗ ܢܬܚܝܒ ܠܐܠܗܐ
19 Yet, we know that the thing which The Namusa {The Law} says, is what is said unto those who are with The Law, so that every mouth would be shut, and the whole world would be indebted to Alaha {God},

ܡܛܠ ܕܡܢ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܠܐ ܡܙܕܕܩ ܟܠ ܒܣܪ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܬܝܕܥܬ ܚܛܝܬܐ
20 because, from the works of The Law, there isn’t any flesh justified before Him, for, sin is known from The Law.

ܗܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܟܐܢܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܓܠܝܬ ܘܡܣܗܕ ܥܠܝܗ ܗܘ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܘܢܒܝܐ
21 But now, without The Namusa {The Law}, The Kinutheh d’Alaha {The Righteousness of God} is revealed; The Law, and The Prophets, testifying about it.

ܟܐܢܘܬܗ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܝܕ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܠܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܐܦ ܥܠ ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܒܗ ܠܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܦܘܪܫܢܐ
22 Yet, this Righteousness of Alaha {God} is for every man, through The Haymanutha {The Faith} which is of Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}; also concerning every man who believes in Him, for there is no distinction,

ܡܛܠ ܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܚܛܘ ܘܚܣܝܪܝܢ ܡܢ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
23 because, all have sinned, and fallen short from The Theshbukhtheh {The Glory of God},

ܘܡܙܕܕܩܝܢ ܒܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܡܓܢ ܘܒܦܘܪܩܢܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܒܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
24 and they are justified by Taybutha {Grace}, freely, and by The Redemption that is in Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

ܗܢܐ ܕܩܕܡ ܣܡܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܚܘܣܝܐ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܕܡܗ ܡܛܠ ܚܛܗܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܚܛܝܢ
25 This is The One whom Alaha {God} had ordained beforehand to be The Reconciliation, through The Haymanutha d’Demeh {The Faith of His Blood}, concerning our sins from which we formerly sinned,

ܒܐܬܪܐ ܕܝܗܒ ܠܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܡܓܪܬ ܪܘܚܗ ܠܬܚܘܝܬܐ ܕܟܐܢܘܬܗ ܕܒܙܒܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܗܘ ܢܗܘܐ ܟܐܢܐ ܘܢܙܕܩ ܒܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܠܡܢ ܕܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܗܘ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
26 with the opportunity that Alaha {God} has given unto us in His long-suffering Spirit, to demonstrate that He is Righteous, that in this time He is Just, and by His Righteousness, justifies those who are in The Haymanutha d’Maran Eshu Meshikha {The Faith of Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

ܐܝܟܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܫܘܒܗܪܐ ܐܬܒܛܠ ܠܗ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܥܒܕܐ ܠܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ
27 Where then is boasting? It is annulled. With regard to what Law? Of works? No, but rather, by The Namusa d’Haymanutha {The Law of Faith}.

ܡܬܪܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܗܘ ܡܙܕܕܩ ܒܪ ܐܢܫܐ ܘܠܐ ܒܥܒܕܐ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ
28 We consider, therefore, that it is by Haymanutha {Faith} that a son of man is justified, and not by the works of The Namusa {The Law}.

ܠܡܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܗܘ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܘܕܥܡܡܐ ܠܐ ܐܝܢ ܐܦ ܕܥܡܡܐ
29 For, what? Is He The Alaha {The God} of the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews} only, and not the Amme {the Gentiles}? Yes, also of the Amme {the Gentiles},

ܡܛܠ ܕܚܕ ܗܘ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܡܙܕܩ ܓܙܘܪܬܐ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܐܦ ܥܘܪܠܘܬܐ ܒܗ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ
30 because, it is One Alaha {God} who justifies the Circumcised, through Haymanutha {Faith}, and also the Uncircumcised, by that Haymanutha {Faith}.

ܠܡܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܗܘ ܡܒܛܠܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܚܣ ܐܠܐ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܗܘ ܡܩܝܡܝܢ ܚܢܢ
31 What therefore is the need for The Namusa {The Law}? Is it annulled by our Haymanutha {Faith}? Far be it! Rather, we are establishing The Namusa {The Law}.


Chapter 4
ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܥܠ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܪܫܐ ܕܐܒܗܬܐ ܕܐܫܟܚ ܒܒܣܪ
1 What then will we say about Abraham, the head of the fathers; that he found it by the flesh?

ܐܠܘ ܓܝܪ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܡܢ ܥܒܕܐ ܐܙܕܕܩ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܫܘܒܗܪܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܐ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ
2 For, if Abraham was justified from works, there is a boast for him; but, not before Alaha {God}.

ܡܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܗܝܡܢ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܬܚܫܒܬ ܠܗ ܠܙܕܝܩܘ
3 For, what does The Kathaba {The Scripture} say? That “Abraham had Faith unto Alaha {God}, and He counted it unto him for Righteousness.”

ܠܡܢ ܕܦܠܚ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܡܬܚܫܒ ܠܗ ܐܓܪܗ ܐܝܟ ܕܒܛܝܒܘ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܢ ܕܡܬܬܚܝܒ ܠܗ
4 Yet, unto the one who works, his wages are not counted unto him as that by Taybu {a favor}, but rather, as unto the one who is owed.

ܠܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܦܠܚ ܐܠܐ ܗܝܡܢ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܒܡܢ ܕܡܙܕܩ ܠܚܛܝܐ ܡܬܚܫܒܐ ܠܗ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܗ ܠܟܐܢܘ
5 But, to that one who doesn’t work, but rather, only believes in Him who justifies Khataye {Sinners}, his Faith is counted unto him for Righteousness.

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܦ ܕܘܝܕ ܐܡܪ ܥܠ ܛܘܒܗ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܚܫܒ ܠܗ ܙܕܝܩܘܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ
6 As also, which David spoke, about the blessedness of the man, whom Alaha {God} considers that one to be Righteous which has no works; when he said,

ܕܛܘܒܝܗܘܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܫܬܒܩ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܘܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܬܟܣܝܘ ܚܛܗܝܗܘܢ
7 that “blessedness is for those whose unrighteousness is forgiven, and whose sins are covered,

ܘܛܘܒܘܗܝ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܚܫܘܒ ܠܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܚܛܝܬܗ
8 and blessedness is for the man whom Alaha {God} doesn’t count sin unto him.”

ܗܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܛܘܒܐ ܥܠ ܓܙܘܪܬܐ ܗܘ ܐܘ ܥܠ ܥܘܪܠܘܬܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܬܚܫܒܬ ܠܐܒܪܗܡ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܗ ܠܟܐܢܘ
9 Now, this blessedness, is it concerning the Circumcised, or concerning the Uncircumcised? For, we say that Abraham’s Faith was counted unto him for Righteousness.

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܬܚܫܒܬ ܠܗ ܒܓܙܘܪܬܐ ܐܘ ܒܥܘܪܠܘܬܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܓܙܘܪܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܥܘܪܠܘܬܐ
10 How then was it counted unto him? In circumcision, or in uncircumcision? It was not while in circumcision, but rather, in uncircumcision!

ܐܬܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܫܩܠܗ ܠܓܙܘܪܬܐ ܘܚܬܡܐ ܕܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܕܗܝܡܢܘܬܗ ܕܒܥܘܪܠܘܬܐ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܐܒܐ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܡܢ ܥܘܪܠܘܬܐ ܕܬܬܚܫܒ ܐܦ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܟܐܢܘ
11 For, he bore The Sign for the circumcised, and The Seal of The Righteousness of Faith, who in his uncircumcision became the father unto all those who are believing from the uncircumcised, so that they also would be counted for The Righteous Ones,

ܘܐܒܐ ܠܓܙܘܪܬܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܓܙܘܪܬܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܠܡܝܢ ܠܥܩܒܬܐ ܕܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܥܘܪܠܘܬܐ ܕܐܒܘܢ ܐܒܪܗܡ
12 and he was the father unto the circumcised; not being so unto those who are from the circumcised only, but rather, also unto those who follow the footsteps of The Faith of the uncircumcision of our father Abraham.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܢܡܘܣܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܘܠܟܢܐ ܠܐܒܪܗܡ ܘܠܙܪܥܗ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܝܪܬܐ ܠܥܠܡܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܕܗܝܡܢܘܬܗ
13 For, The Mulkana {The Promise} was not unto Abraham and unto his Seed, by The Namusa {The Law}; that he would inherit the world, but rather, by The Kenutha d’Haymanutheh {The Righteousness of his Faith}.

ܐܠܘ ܓܝܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܗܘܘ ܝܪܬܐ ܣܪܝܩܐ ܗܘܬ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܡܒܛܠ ܗܘܐ ܡܘܠܟܢܐ
14 For, if those who are from The Namusa {The Law} were The Heirs, Haymanutha {Faith} is empty, and The Mulkana {The Promise} is annulled,

ܢܡܘܣܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܥܒܕܢܐ ܗܘ ܕܪܘܓܙܐ ܟܪ ܕܠܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܥܒܪ ܢܡܘܣܐ
15 for, The Namusa {The Law} is the cause of wrath, for, where there is no Law, there is also no transgressing The Law.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܒܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܢܙܕܕܩ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܫܪܝܪ ܡܘܠܟܢܐ ܠܟܠܗ ܙܪܥܗ ܠܐ ܠܐܝܢܐ ܕܡܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܗܘ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܠܐܝܢܐ ܕܡܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܐܒܐ ܕܟܠܢ
16 Because, this justifying through Haymanutha {Faith} that is by Grace, which is a firm Promise unto all The Seed, isn’t just unto those who are from The Law only, but rather, also unto those who are from The Faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all.

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܣܡܬܟ ܐܒܐ ܠܣܘܓܐܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܕܗܝܡܢܬ ܒܗ ܕܡܚܐ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܩܪܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ
17 As that which is written: “I have placed you a father for a multitude of Amme {Nations/Peoples},” before Alaha {God}; the One in whom you believe, who revives the dead, and calls unto those who are not, as if they are,

ܘܕܠܐ ܣܒܪܐ ܠܣܒܪܐ ܗܝܡܢ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܐܒܐ ܠܣܘܓܐܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܙܪܥܟ
18 and he without Hope, unto Hope, believed that he would be the father to a multitude of Amme {Nations/Peoples}, as that which is written, that “Thus your Seed will be.”

ܘܠܐ ܐܬܟܪܗ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܗ ܟܕ ܡܬܒܩܐ ܒܦܓܪܗ ܡܝܬܐ ܕܗܘܐ ܒܪ ܡܐܐ ܫܢܝܢ ܘܒܡܪܒܥܐ ܡܝܬܐ ܕܣܪܐ
19 And he wasn’t weak in Haymanutheh {his Faith}, while in his body he was considered dead, who was a son of one hundred years, and Sara was dead in the marba {the womb}.

ܘܒܡܘܠܟܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܐܬܦܠܓ ܐܝܟ ܚܣܝܪ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܬܚܝܠ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܝܗܒ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ
20 And in The Mulkana d’Alaha {The Promise of God} he didn’t doubt, as lacking Haymanutha {Faith}, but rather, was strengthened in Haymanutha {Faith}, and gave praise unto Alaha {God},

ܘܐܫܪ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܡܠܟ ܠܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܓܡܪ
21 and he believed Alaha {God} was able to fulfill that thing which was promised unto him.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܚܫܒܬ ܠܗ ܠܟܐܢܘ
22 Because of this, it was counted unto him for Righteousness.

ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܛܠܬܗ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܐܬܟܬܒܬ ܗܕܐ ܕܐܬܚܫܒܬ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܗ ܠܟܐܢܘ
23 And it wasn’t because of him only that this was written; that “his Faith was counted for Righteousness,”

ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܡܛܠܬܢ ܕܐܦ ܠܢ ܥܬܝܕ ܗܘ ܕܢܚܫܘܒ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܢ ܒܡܢ ܕܐܩܝܡ ܠܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ
24 but rather, even because of us also it is destined that it will be counted, in whom that believe in The One who raised Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}, from the beth miythe {the house/abode of the dead},

ܕܗܘ ܐܫܬܠܡ ܡܛܠ ܚܛܗܝܢ ܘܩܡ ܡܛܠ ܕܢܙܕܩܢ
25 He who was delivered up on account of our sins, and was raised up in order that He might justify us.

Chapter 5
ܡܛܠ ܕܐܙܕܕܩܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܢ ܫܠܡܐ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
1 Therefore, because we are justified by Haymanutha {Faith}, there is Shlama {Peace} for us with Alaha {God}, through Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One},

ܕܒܗ ܐܬܩܪܒܢ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܠܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܒܗ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܡܫܬܒܗܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܒܣܒܪܐ ܕܬܫܒܘܚܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
2 by whom, we are brought near, through Haymanutha {Faith}, unto this Taybutha {Grace} in which we are standing, and we boast in The Sabra d’Theshbukhtheh d’Alaha {The Hope of The Glory of God}.

ܘܠܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܒܐܘܠܨܢܝܢ ܡܫܬܒܗܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܡܣܝܒܪܢܘܬܐ ܓܡܪ ܒܢ
3 And not thus so only, but, we also boast in afflictions, which we know that afflictions perfect patience in us,

ܘܡܣܝܒܪܢܘܬܐ ܒܘܩܝܐ ܘܒܘܩܝܐ ܣܒܪܐ
4 and patience, experience, and experience, hope.

ܣܒܪܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܡܒܗܬ ܡܛܠ ܕܚܘܒܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܫܦܥ ܥܠ ܠܒܘܬܢ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܕܐܬܝܗܒܬ ܠܢ
5 Yet, hope is not shameful, because of The Khubeh d’Alaha {The Love of God} poured out upon our hearts by The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness} who was given unto us.

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܛܠ ܟܪܝܗܘܬܢ ܒܙܒܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܚܠܦ ܪܫܝܥܐ ܡܝܬ
6 Now, if Meshikha {The Anointed One}, because of our weakness in this time, died for the rashiye {the wicked};

ܠܡܚܣܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܢܫ ܚܠܦ ܪܫܝܥܐ ܡܐܬ ܚܠܦ ܛܒܐ ܓܝܪ ܛܟ ܡܡܪܚ ܐܢܫ ܠܡܡܬ
7 for, a man will scarcely die for the wicked, yet, for the good, a man would dare to die;

ܗܪܟܐ ܡܚܘܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܚܘܒܗ ܕܠܘܬܢ ܕܐܢ ܟܕ ܚܛܝܐ ܐܝܬܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܚܠܦܝܢ ܡܝܬ
8 hence, Alaha {God} shows Khubeh {His Love} which is towards us, that though, while we were Khataye {Sinners}, Meshikha {The Anointed One} died for us!

ܟܡܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܢܙܕܕܩ ܗܫܐ ܒܕܡܗ ܘܒܗ ܢܬܦܨܐ ܡܢ ܪܘܓܙܐ
9 Therefore, how much more abundantly, now justified by His Blood, and in Him, rescued from rugza {wrath}?

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܟܕ ܐܝܬܝܢ ܒܥܠܕܒܒܐ ܐܬܪܥܝ ܥܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܡܘܬܐ ܕܒܪܗ ܟܡܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܒܬܪܥܘܬܗ ܢܚܐ ܒܚܝܘܗܝ
10 For, if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled with Alaha {God}, by the death of His Son, how much more abundantly therefore, will we, by His Reconciliation, be made alive by His Life?

ܘܠܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܢܫܬܒܗܪ ܒܐܠܗܐ ܒܝܕ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܒܗ ܗܘ ܗܫܐ ܩܒܠܢ ܬܪܥܘܬܐ
11 And not thus so only, but, we also boast in Alaha {God}, through Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}, He, that in whom we now have received Reconciliation,

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܝܕ ܚܕ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܥܠܬ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܠܥܠܡܐ ܘܒܝܕ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܡܘܬܐ ܘܗܟܢܐ ܒܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܥܒܪ ܡܘܬܐ ܒܗܝ ܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܚܛܘ
12 for, as through the one son of man, sin entered into the alma {the world}, and through sin, mawtha {death}, and thus in every son of man, mawtha {death} was transferred into all those who sinned,

ܥܕܡܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܢܡܘܣܐ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܟܕ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܗܘܬ ܒܥܠܡܐ ܠܐ ܚܫܝܒܐ ܗܘܬ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܢܡܘܣܐ
13 for, until The Namusa {The Law} came, khatitha {sin}, while it was existing in the alma {the world}, wasn’t reckoned to be khatitha {sin}, because The Namusa {The Law} didn’t exist.

ܐܠܐ ܐܡܠܟ ܡܘܬܐ ܡܢ ܐܕܡ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܡܘܫܐ ܐܦ ܥܠ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܚܛܘ ܒܕܡܘܬܐ ܕܥܒܪ ܢܡܘܣܗ ܕܐܕܡ ܗܘ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܕܡܘܬܐ ܕܗܘ ܕܥܬܝܕ
14 But, mawtha {death} reigned from Adam, and until Mushe {Moses}, even over those who didn’t sin in the type of transgression of The Law, of Adam, that one who was a type of that One who was destined to come.

ܐܠܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܫܘܪܥܬܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܡܛܠ ܫܘܪܥܬܗ ܕܚܕ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܡܝܬܘ ܟܡܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܡܘܗܒܬܗ ܡܛܠ ܚܕ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܣܓܝܐܐ ܬܬܝܬܪ
15 But, the trespass thus isn’t like The Gift, for, if the many died because of the trespass of the one, how much more abundantly therefore, will The Taybutheh d’Alaha {The Grace of God}, and His Gift, in the many abound, because of the One Son of Man; Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}?

ܘܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܣܟܠܘܬܐ ܕܚܕ ܗܟܢܐ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܕܝܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܚܕ ܠܚܘܝܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܚܛܗܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܟܐܢܘ
16 And thus, the foolishness of the one is not like The Gift; for, the judgment came from the one unto condemnation, yet, The Gift is unto Righteousness, coming from many sins.

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܡܛܠ ܣܟܠܘܬܐ ܕܚܕ ܐܡܠܟ ܡܘܬܐ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܢܣܒܘ ܣܘܓܐܐ ܕܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܘܕܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܘܕܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܒܚܝܐ ܢܡܠܟܘܢ ܒܝܕ ܚܕ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
17 For, if mawtha {death} reigned because of the foolishness of the one, those who receive the multitude of Grace, and of The Gift, and of Righteousness, will abundantly reign in Life, through The One; Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

ܐܟܙܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܡܛܠ ܣܟܠܘܬܐ ܕܚܕ ܗܘܐ ܚܘܝܒܐ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܕܚܕ ܬܗܘܐ ܙܟܘܬܐ ܠܚܝܐ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ
18 Therefore, just as condemnation came unto all the sons of men, because of the foolishness of the one, thus, because of The Righteousness of The One, Justification unto Life came unto all the sons of men.

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܛܠ ܠܐ ܡܫܬܡܥܢܘܬܗ ܕܚܕ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܚܛܝܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܗܘܘ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܡܛܠ ܡܫܬܡܥܢܘܬܗ ܕܚܕ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܟܐܢܐ ܗܘܝܢ
19 For, how that because the one son of man didn’t obey, many became Khataye {Sinners}; thus also, because of the obedience of The One, many became Righteous.

ܡܥܠܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܗܘܐ ܠܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܬܣܓܐ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܘܟܪ ܕܣܓܝܬ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܬܡܢ ܐܬܝܬܪܬ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ
20 But, The Namusa {The Law}, entering, was so that sin would increase, and where sin increased, there Taybutha {Grace} has abounded,

ܕܐܝܟ ܕܐܡܠܟܬ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܒܡܘܬܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܬܡܠܟ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܒܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܠܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܒܝܕ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
21 so that as sin had reigned in mawtha {death}, thus Taybutha {Grace} will reign in Kenutha {Righteousness}, unto Khaye {Lives} which are eternal, by means of Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}.


Chapter 6
ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܐܡܪ ܢܩܘܐ ܒܗ ܒܚܛܝܬܐ ܕܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܬܬܝܬܪ
1 What now are we saying? Shall we abide in it, in sin, so that Taybutha {Grace} will abound?

ܚܣ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܝܬܢ ܠܚܛܝܬܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܢܚܐ ܒܗ ܬܘܒ
2 Far be it! For, those who have died to sin, how will they live in it again?

ܐܘ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܡܕܢ ܒܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܡܘܬܗ ܗܘ ܥܡܕܢ
3 Or, don’t you know that the ones who were Immersed {Baptized} in Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}, were Immersed {Baptized} into Mawtheh {His Death}?

ܐܬܩܒܪܢ ܓܝܪ ܥܡܗ ܒܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܠܡܘܬܐ ܕܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܩܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܒܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܕܐܒܘܗܝ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܒܚܝܐ ܚܕܬܐ ܢܗܠܟ
4 For, we were buried with Him in Immersion {Baptism}, unto death, so that as Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One} who was raised from the beth miythe {the house/abode of the dead}, in The Glory of His Father, thus also, we might walk in New Life.

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܟܚܕ ܐܬܢܨܒܢ ܥܡܗ ܒܕܡܘܬܐ ܕܡܘܬܗ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܒܩܝܡܬܗ ܢܗܘܐ
5 For, if we have been planted together with Him in the likeness of Mawtheh {His Death}, thus also, we will be in Qayamtheh {His Resurrection}.

ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܪܢܫܢ ܥܬܝܩܐ ܐܙܕܩܦ ܥܡܗ ܕܢܬܒܛܠ ܦܓܪܐ ܕܚܛܝܬܐ ܬܘܒ ܠܐ ܢܫܡܫ ܠܚܛܝܬܐ
6 For, we know that our old son of man was crucified with Him, so that the body of sin would cease, so that never again should we be slaves to sin,

ܐܝܢܐ ܕܡܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܐܬܚܪܪ ܠܗ ܡܢ ܚܛܝܬܐ
7 for, the one who has died, has been freed from sin.

ܐܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܝܬܢ ܥܡ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܢܗܝܡܢ ܕܥܡܗ ܥܡ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܢܚܐ
8 If then we have died with Meshikha {The Anointed One}, we believe that with Him, with Meshikha {The Anointed One}, we will Live.

ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܩܡ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܬܘܒ ܠܐ ܡܐܬ ܘܡܘܬܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܬܠܛ ܒܗ
9 For, we know that Meshikha {The Anointed One} rose from the beth miythe {the house/abode of the dead}, and doesn’t die again, and death has no power in Him.

ܕܡܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܠܚܛܝܬܐ ܗܘ ܡܝܬ ܚܕܐ ܙܒܢ ܘܕܚܝ ܚܝ ܗܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ
10 For, He who died, died for sin one time; and living, He lives for Alaha {God}.

ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܚܫܘܒܘ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܕܡܝܬܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܚܛܝܬܐ ܘܚܝܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܒܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
11 Thus, you also are to reckon your souls, that you are dead to sin, and you are alive to Alaha {God}, in Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

ܠܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܬܡܠܟ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܒܦܓܪܟܘܢ ܡܝܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܬܫܬܡܥܘܢ ܠܪܓܝܓܬܗ
12 Now then, don’t allow sin to rule in your dead body, as that you would respond to its lusts,

ܘܐܦ ܠܐ ܬܛܝܒܘܢ ܗܕܡܝܟܘܢ ܙܝܢܐ ܕܥܘܠܐ ܠܚܛܝܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܛܝܒܘ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܟ ܐܢܫܐ ܕܡܢ ܡܝܬܐ ܚܝܝܬܘܢ ܘܗܕܡܝܟܘܢ ܙܝܢܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܠܟܐܢܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
13 and also, don’t make ready your members as weapons of unrighteousness for sin, but rather, make ready your souls for Alaha {God}, as men who from the dead have been made alive, and your members will be weapons for The Righteousness of Alaha {God}.

ܘܚܛܝܬܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܬܠܛܐ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܬܝܟܘܢ ܬܚܝܬ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܐܠܐ ܬܚܝܬ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ
14 And sin has no authority over you, for, you are not under The Namusa {The Law}, but rather, under Taybutha {Grace}.

ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܚܛܐ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܝܢ ܬܚܝܬ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܐܠܐ ܬܚܝܬ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܚܣ
15 What then? Shall we sin, because, we are not under The Namusa {The Law}, but rather, under Taybutha {Grace}? Far be it!

ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܠܡܢ ܕܡܛܝܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܕܬܫܬܡܥܘܢ ܠܗ ܠܥܒܕܘܬܐ ܕܝܠܗ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܗܘ ܕܡܫܬܡܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ ܐܢ ܠܚܛܝܬܐ ܘܐܢ ܠܡܫܡܥ ܐܕܢܐ ܕܟܐܢܘܬܐ
16 Don’t you know that unto whom that you make ready your soul to obey for service, that unto him you are slaves, of whom that you are obedient unto, if unto sin, and if unto the hearing ear of righteousness?

ܛܝܒܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܕܥܒܕܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܕܚܛܝܬܐ ܘܐܫܬܡܥܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܠܒܐ ܠܕܡܘܬܐ ܕܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܕܐܫܬܠܡܬܘܢ ܠܗ
17 But, thanks be unto Alaha {God}, that you were slaves of sin, and you have obeyed from the heart unto the form of Doctrine that was delivered to you,

ܘܟܕ ܐܬܚܪܪܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܐܫܬܥܒܕܬܘܢ ܠܟܐܢܘܬܐ
18 and when you were freed from sin, you were made subservient unto Kenutha {Righteousness}.

ܐܝܟ ܕܒܝܬ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܟܪܝܗܘܬܐ ܕܒܣܪܟܘܢ ܕܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܛܝܒܬܘܢ ܗܕܡܝܟܘܢ ܠܥܒܕܘܬܐ ܕܛܢܦܘܬܐ ܘܕܥܘܠܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܗܫܐ ܛܝܒܘ ܗܕܡܝܟܘܢ ܠܥܒܕܘܬܐ ܕܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܘܕܩܕܝܫܘܬܐ
19 As of among the sons of men I speak, because of the weakness of your flesh, that as you prepared your members for the service of impurity, and unrighteousness, thus also, now prepare your members for the service of Kenutha {Righteousness}, and of Qadishutha {Sanctification}.

ܟܕ ܥܒܕܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܚܛܝܬܐ ܡܚܪܪܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܠܟܐܢܘܬܐ
20 For, when you were Abde {Slaves} of sin, you were free from Kenutha {Righteousness},

ܘܡܢܐ ܐܕܫܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܝܘܡܢܐ ܒܗܬܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܗ ܚܪܬܗ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܡܘܬܐ
21 and what was the profit you had then, in that which today you are ashamed? For, the end of it is mawtha {death},

ܘܗܫܐ ܕܐܬܚܪܪܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܘܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܥܒܕܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܦܐܪܐ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܚܪܬܗܘܢ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
22 and now that you have been freed from sin, and have become slaves for Alaha {God}, there is for you holy phire {fruits}, which end is Life that is eternal.

ܬܐܓܘܪܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܚܛܝܬܐ ܡܘܬܐ ܗܘ ܘܡܘܗܒܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܒܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
23 But, the wages of sin is mawtha {death}, and The Gift of Alaha {God} is Khaye {Life} that is eternal, in Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

Chapter 7
ܐܘ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܚܝ ܠܝܕܥܝ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܡܠܠ ܐܢܐ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܫܠܝܛ ܗܘ ܥܠ ܓܒܪܐ ܟܡܐ ܕܚܝ
1 Or, don’t you know my Brothers; (to those who are acquainted with The Law) for, I speak of The Law; that it has the rule over a man as long as he is alive?

ܐܝܟ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܕܐܣܝܪܐ ܗܝ ܒܒܥܠܗ ܟܡܐ ܕܚܝ ܒܢܡܘܣܐ ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܝܬ ܒܥܠܗ ܐܬܚܪܪܬ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܒܥܠܗ
2 Like a wife who is bound with her husband, with regard to The Law, as long as he is alive; but, if her husband has died, she has been freed from The Law of her husband.

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܚܝ ܒܥܠܗ ܬܩܦ ܠܓܒܪ ܐܚܪܝܢ ܗܘܬ ܠܗ ܓܝܪܬܐ ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܢܡܘܬ ܒܥܠܗ ܐܬܚܪܪܬ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܓܝܪܬܐ ܐܢ ܬܗܘܐ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ
3 Yet, if, while her husband is alive, she joins to another man, she becomes an adulteress. But, if her husband dies, she has been freed from The Law, and is not an adulteress if she becomes another man’s wife.

ܘܗܫܐ ܐܚܝ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܝܬܬܘܢ ܠܢܡܘܣܐ ܒܦܓܪܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܬܗܘܘܢ ܠܐܚܪܝܢ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܩܡ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܕܬܬܠܘܢ ܦܐܪܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ
4 And now, my Brothers, you also have died to The Law, in The Body of Meshikha {The Anointed One}, so that you might be for another; The One who arose from the beth miythe {the house/abode of the dead, who gives fruits unto Alaha {God}.

ܟܕ ܒܒܣܪܐ ܗܘܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܟܐܒܐ ܕܚܛܗܐ ܕܒܢܡܘܣܐ ܡܬܚܦܛܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗܕܡܝܢ ܕܦܐܪܐ ܢܬܠ ܠܡܘܬܐ
5 For, while we were in the flesh, the passions of sin, through The Law, were urged on in our members, so that we were giving fruits unto death.

ܗܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܒܛܠܢ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܘܡܝܬܢ ܠܗܘ ܕܐܚܝܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܢ ܕܢܫܡܫ ܡܟܝܠ ܒܚܕܬܘܬܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܘܠܐ ܒܥܬܝܩܘܬ ܟܬܒܐ
6 But now, we have been annulled from The Law, and have died to that which was holding us, so that we therefore might serve in the newness of The Rukha {The Spirit}, and not in the oldness of The Kathaba {The Scripture}.

ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܗܘ ܚܣ ܐܠܐ ܠܚܛܝܬܐ ܠܐ ܝܠܦܬ ܐܠܐ ܒܝܕ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܪܓܬܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܝܬ ܐܠܘ ܠܐ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܠܐ ܬܪܓ
7 What then are we saying? The Law is sin? Far be it! Rather, for, I didn’t learn sin except through The Namusa {The Law}, for, I hadn’t known lust, if The Law didn’t say that “You shall not lust,”

ܘܒܗܢܐ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܐܫܟܚܬ ܠܗ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܥܠܬܐ ܘܓܡܪܬ ܒܝ ܟܠ ܪܓܐ ܒܠܥܕ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܓܝܪ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܡܝܬܐ ܗܘܬ
8 and by this Command, sin found an opportunity for itself, and fulfilled in me every lust, for, without The Law, sin was dead.

ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܚܝ ܗܘܝܬ ܕܠܐ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܚܝܬ ܘܐܢܐ ܡܝܬܬ
9 Yet, I was alive formerly, without The Law, but, when the Command came, sin came alive, and I died.

ܘܐܫܬܟܚ ܠܝ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܗܘ ܕܚܝܐ ܠܡܘܬܐ
10 And I found the Command, which was of life for me, was for death.

ܚܛܝܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܥܠܬܐ ܕܐܫܟܚܬ ܠܗ ܒܝܕ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܐܛܥܝܬܢܝ ܘܒܗ ܩܛܠܬܢܝ
11 For, sin, through the opportunity that it had found for itself, through the Command, had deceived me, and by it, had killed me.

ܢܡܘܣܐ ܡܕܝܢ ܩܕܝܫ ܗܘ ܘܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܩܕܝܫ ܗܘ ܘܟܐܝܢ ܘܛܒ
12 The Law, therefore, is Holy, and The Command is Holy, and just and good.

ܛܒܬܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܠܝ ܠܡܘܬܐ ܗܘ ܗܘܬ ܚܣ ܐܠܐ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܕܬܬܚܙܐ ܕܚܛܝܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܒܛܒܬܐ ܓܡܪܬ ܒܝ ܡܘܬܐ ܕܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܬܬܚܝܒ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܒܦܘܩܕܢܐ
13 Therefore, the good for me, was it for death? Far be it! But rather, sin, that it might be shown that it is sin; that by the good fulfilled death in me, so that sin might be exceedingly condemned by the Command.

ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܪܘܚ ܗܘ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܒܣܪ ܐܢܐ ܘܡܙܒܢ ܐܢܐ ܠܚܛܝܬܐ
14 For, we know that The Law is of The Rukh {The Spirit}, yet I, I am of the flesh, and I am sold to sin,

ܡܕܡ ܕܣܥܪ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܣܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܗܘ ܗܘ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ
15 for, I don’t understand the thing which I do, and the thing which I don’t desire, I do, but the thing which I hate is that one that I do.

ܘܐܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܣܗܕ ܐܢܐ ܥܠ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܫܦܝܪ ܗܘ
16 And if I do the thing that I don’t desire, I testify concerning The Law, that it is good.

ܗܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܣܥܪ ܐܢܐ ܗܕܐ ܐܠܐ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܕܥܡܪܐ ܒܝ
17 Yet, now, I am not doing this myself, but rather, khatitha {sin} which dwells in me.

ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܐ ܥܡܪܐ ܒܝ ܗܢܘ ܕܝܢ ܒܒܣܪܝ ܛܒܬܐ ܕܐܨܒܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܛܒܬܐ ܦܫܝܩ ܠܝ ܕܐܣܥܪܝܗ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܐ
18 For, I know that there is no good dwelling in me; that is to say, yet, in my flesh; for, that I should desire in the good thing is easy for me, but, that I might do it, I’m not able.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܛܒܬܐ ܕܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܥܒܕ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܥܒܕ ܠܗ ܗܘ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ
19 For, unto the good which I desire that I should do, I am not doing, but rather, the evil that I don’t desire to do; that I’m doing!

ܘܐܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܕܥܡܪܐ ܒܝ
20 And if I do the thing which I don’t desire, it is not I doing it, but rather, khatitha {sin} which dwells in me.

ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܠܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܫܠܡ ܠܪܥܝܢܝ ܗܘ ܕܨܒܐ ܕܢܥܒܕ ܛܒܬܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܒܝܫܬܐ ܩܪܝܒܐ ܗܝ ܠܝ
21 I find, therefore, a law which agrees with my mind, so that I desire that I should do good, because evil is near to me.

ܚܕܐ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܢܡܘܣܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܒܪܢܫܐ ܕܠܓܘ
22 For, I rejoice in The Law of Alaha {God} in The Son of Man, who is within.

ܚܙܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܒܗܕܡܝ ܕܡܩܪܒ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܪܥܝܢܝ ܘܫܒܐ ܠܝ ܠܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܚܛܝܬܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗܕܡܝ
23 yet, I see another law in my members, that contends against The law of my mind, and takes me captive unto the law of sin, which is in my members.

ܕܘܝܐ ܐܢܐ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܡܢܘ ܢܦܨܝܢܝ ܡܢ ܦܓܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܡܘܬܐ
24 I am a miserable son of man. Who will rescue me from this body of death!?

ܡܘܕܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܒܝܕ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܫܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܢܐ ܒܪܥܝܢܝ ܥܒܕܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܒܣܪܝ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܬܝ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܚܛܝܬܐ
25 I give thanks unto Alaha {God}, through Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}! Now I, therefore, in my mind, I am a slave of The Law of Alaha {God}, yet, in my flesh, there is a slave of the law of sin.

Chapter 8
ܡܟܝܠ ܠܝܬ ܚܝܒܘܬܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܗܠܟܝܢ ܒܒܣܪ ܒܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
1 Therefore, there is no condemnation for those, who in Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}, are not walking in the flesh.

ܢܡܘܣܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܕܚܝܐ ܕܒܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܚܪܪܟ ܡܢ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܚܛܝܬܐ ܘܕܡܘܬܐ
2 For, The Law of The Rukha d’Khaye {The Spirit of Life}, which is in Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}, has freed you from the law of sin and of death.

ܡܛܠ ܕܡܚܝܠ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܒܝܕ ܟܪܝܗܘܬܗ ܕܒܣܪܐ ܫܕܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܒܪܗ ܒܕܡܘܬܐ ܕܒܣܪܐ ܕܚܛܝܬܐ ܡܛܠܬܗ ܕܚܛܝܬܐ ܕܢܚܝܒܝܗ ܠܚܛܝܬܐ ܒܒܣܪܗ
3 For, because The Law became weak through the weakness of the flesh, Alaha {God} has sent His Son in the form of the flesh of sin, on account of sin, in order to condemn sin in His flesh,

ܕܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܒܢ ܬܬܡܠܐ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܒܣܪ ܡܗܠܟܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܠܐ ܒܪܘܚ
4 so that The Righteousness of The Law might be fulfilled in us; we who are not walking in the flesh, but rather, in The Rukh {The Spirit}.

ܐܝܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܒܣܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܒܣܪ ܗܘ ܡܬܪܥܝܢ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܕܪܘܚ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܪܘܚ ܗܘ ܡܬܪܥܝܢ
5 For, those who are in the flesh are mindful of the flesh, and those who are of The Rukh {The Spirit}, are mindful of The Rukh {The Spirit}.

ܬܪܥܝܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܣܪܐ ܡܘܬܐ ܗܘ ܘܬܪܥܝܬܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܚܝܐ ܘܫܠܡܐ
6 For, the mind of the flesh is death, and the mind of The Rukha {The Spirit} is Life, and Peace.

ܡܛܠ ܕܬܪܥܝܬܐ ܕܒܣܪܐ ܒܥܠܕܒܒܘܬܐ ܗܝ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܢܡܘܣܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܬܥܒܕܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܐ
7 Because, the mind of the flesh is hostile towards Alaha {God}, for, unto The Law of Alaha {God} it isn’t subservient, because, it isn’t able to be.

ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܒܒܣܪ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܡܫܦܪ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ
8 And those who are in the flesh, are not able to be pleasing to Alaha {God}.

ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܒܒܣܪ ܐܠܐ ܒܪܘܚ ܐܢ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܪܘܚܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܥܡܪܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܫ ܠܝܬ ܒܗ ܪܘܚܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܢܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܠܗ
9 But, you are not in the flesh, but rather, in The Rukh {The Spirit}, if The Rukheh d’Alaha {The Spirit of God} truly dwells in you. But, if a man isn’t in The Rukheh d’Meshikha {The Spirit of The Anointed One}, this one is not of His own.

ܘܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܦܓܪܐ ܡܝܬ ܗܘ ܡܛܠ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܝܢ ܚܝܐ ܗܝ ܡܛܠ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ
10 But, if Meshikha {The Anointed One} is in you, the body is dead because of khatitha {sin}, yet, the rukha {the spirit} is alive because of kenutha {righteousness}.

ܘܐܢ ܪܘܚܗ ܕܗܘ ܡܢ ܕܐܩܝܡ ܠܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܥܡܪܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܗܘ ܡܢ ܕܐܩܝܡܗ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܐܦ ܠܦܓܪܝܟܘܢ ܡܝܬܐ ܢܚܐ ܡܛܠ ܪܘܚܗ ܕܥܡܪܐ ܒܟܘܢ
11 And if Rukheh {His Spirit}, of that One who raised Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One} from the beth miythe {the house/abode of the dead}, dwells in you, that One who raised Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One} from the beth miythe {the house/abode of the dead}, will also revive your dead bodies, because of Rukheh {His Spirit} who dwells in you.

ܗܫܐ ܐܚܝ ܚܝܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܘ ܠܒܣܪܐ ܕܒܒܣܪ ܢܗܠܟ
12 Now, my Brothers, we are not obligated to the flesh, so that in the flesh we should walk.

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܒܒܣܪ ܚܐܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܬܝܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܗܘ ܠܡܡܬ ܘܐܢ ܒܪܘܚ ܗܘܦܟܝ ܦܓܪܐ ܡܡܝܬܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܚܐܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
13 For, if you are living in the flesh, you are destined to die, and if in The Rukh {The Spirit} you are killing the body’s conduct, you will live.

ܐܝܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܬܕܒܪܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܒܢܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ
14 For those, who in The Rukha d’Alaha {The Spirit of God} are conducting themselves; those are The Sons of Alaha {God}.

ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܢܣܒܬܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܥܒܕܘܬܐ ܬܘܒ ܠܕܚܠܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܢܣܒܬܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܣܝܡܬ ܒܢܝܐ ܕܒܗ ܩܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܒܐ ܐܒܘܢ
15 For, we have not received the spirit of servitude again, unto fear, but rather, we have received The Rukha {The Spirit} of The Adoption of Sons, so that in Him we cry out, Aba, Abun {Father, Our Father}!

ܘܗܝ ܪܘܚܐ ܡܣܗܕܐ ܠܪܘܚܢ ܕܐܝܬܝܢ ܒܢܝܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
16 And The Rukha {The Spirit} Himself witnesses unto our spirit, that we are The Sons of Alaha {God}.

ܘܐܢ ܒܢܝܐ ܐܦ ܝܪܬܐ ܝܪܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܢܝ ܝܪܬܘܬܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܐܢ ܢܚܫ ܥܡܗ ܐܦ ܥܡܗ ܢܫܬܒܚ
17 And if Sons, Heirs also; The Yarthe d’Alaha {The Heirs of God}, and also The Sons of The Inheritance of Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

ܡܬܪܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܐ ܫܘܝܢ ܚܫܘܗܝ ܕܙܒܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܠܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܥܬܝܕܐ ܕܬܬܓܠܐ ܒܢ
18 For, I think that the sufferings of this time are not equal to The Theshbukhtha {The Glory} which is destined to be revealed in us,

ܟܠܗ ܓܝܪ ܒܪܝܬܐ ܡܣܒܪܐ ܘܡܣܟܝܐ ܠܓܠܝܢܐ ܕܒܢܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ
19 for, all creation hopes and looks for The Gelyana {The Manifestation} of The Sons of Alaha {God},

ܒܪܝܬܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܫܬܥܒܕܬ ܠܣܪܝܩܘܬܐ ܠܐ ܒܨܒܝܢܗ ܐܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܡܢ ܕܫܥܒܕܗ ܥܠ ܣܒܪܐ
20 for, the creation was subjected to vanity, not by its own desire, but rather, because of Him who subjected it, upon hope,

ܕܐܦ ܗܝ ܒܪܝܬܐ ܬܬܚܪܪ ܡܢ ܥܒܕܘܬܐ ܕܚܒܠܐ ܒܚܪܘܪܐ ܕܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܕܒܢܝܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
21 so that the creation itself also will be freed from the servitude of corruption, in the freedoms of Theshbukhtha {The Glory} of The Sons of Alaha {God}.

ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܟܠܗܝܢ ܒܪܝܬܐ ܡܬܬܢܚܢ ܘܡܚܒܠܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܢܐ
22 For, we know that every creature groans and perishes till today,

ܘܠܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܗܢܝܢ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܢ ܪܫܝܬܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܡܬܬܢܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܒܢܦܫܢ ܘܡܣܟܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܣܝܡܬ ܒܢܝܐ ܠܦܘܪܩܢܐ ܕܦܓܪܝܢ
23 and not only they, but also we who are among the first-fruits of The Rukha {The Spirit}; we groan in our souls, and we are looking for The Adoption of The Sons, and for The Redemption of our bodies.

ܡܛܠ ܕܒܣܒܪܐ ܗܘ ܚܝܝܢ ܣܒܪܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܬܚܙܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܣܒܪܐ ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܚܙܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܗ ܡܢܐ ܡܣܟܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܗ
24 Because, it is in Hope that we live; yet, hope that is seen, isn’t hope, for, if we are seeing it, for what are we looking for?

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܡܕܡ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܡܣܒܪܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܒܡܣܝܒܪܢܘܬܐ ܡܩܘܝܢ ܚܢܢ
25 But, if for the thing that isn’t seen we are hoping, we are remaining in patience.

ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܗܝ ܪܘܚܐ ܡܥܕܪܐ ܠܟܪܝܗܘܬܢ ܡܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܢܨܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܘܠܐ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܠܐ ܗܝ ܪܘܚܐ ܡܨܠܝܐ ܚܠܦܝܢ ܒܬܢܚܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܡܠܠܢ
26 Thus also He, The Rukha {The Spirit}, helps our frailty, for, what to pray for, according to what is proper, we don’t know, but rather, He, The Rukha {The Spirit} prays for us, in groans that are not spoken.

ܕܡܐܫ ܕܝܢ ܠܒܘܬܐ ܗܘ ܝܕܥ ܡܢܐ ܗܝ ܬܪܥܝܬܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܕܐܝܟ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܗܘ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܨܠܝܐ ܚܠܦ ܩܕܝܫܐ
27 Therefore, He who examines the hearts, knows what The Mind of The Rukha {The Spirit} is, so that according to The Will of Alaha {God} He prays for The Qadishe {The Holy Ones}.

ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܚܒܝܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܒܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܡܥܕܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܛܒܬܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܩܕܡ ܣܡ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܩܪܝܐ
28 Therefore, we know that those who love Alaha {God}, He helps them with all things for the good, for those who from the first were placed, so that they would be called.

ܘܡܢ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܪܫܡ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܕܡܘܬܐ ܕܨܘܪܬܐ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܗܘ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܘܟܪܐ ܕܐܚܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ
29 And from before, He knew them, and He prefigured them in the likeness of the image of His Son, so that He would be The Firstborn of many Brothers.

ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܩܕܡ ܪܫܡ ܠܗܘܢ ܩܪܐ ܘܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܩܪܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܕܩ ܘܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܙܕܩ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܒܚ
30 Therefore, for those who were before prefigured; unto them He has called, and unto those whom He has called, unto them He has justified, and unto those whom He has justified, unto them He has glorified.

ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܐܡܪ ܥܠ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܚܠܦܝܢ ܡܢܘ ܕܠܩܘܒܠܢ
31 What, therefore, will we say against these things? If Alaha {God} is for us, who is against us?

ܘܐܢ ܥܠ ܒܪܗ ܠܐ ܚܣ ܐܠܐ ܚܠܦ ܟܠܢ ܐܫܠܡܗ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܠܐ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܥܡܗ ܢܬܠ ܠܢ
32 And if He had no pity upon His Son, but rather, delivered Him up for all, how will He not, with Him, give unto us every thing?

ܡܢܘ ܢܩܒܘܠ ܥܠ ܓܒܝܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܙܕܩ
33 Who will accuse against The Gabaya d’Alaha {The Chosen Ones of God} whom Alaha {God} justifies?

ܡܢܘ ܡܚܝܒ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܝܬ ܘܩܡ ܘܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܥܠ ܝܡܝܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܒܥܐ ܚܠܦܝܢ
34 Who condemns? Meshikha {The Anointed One} has died, and has risen, and is on The Right of Alaha {God}, and is interceding for us.

ܡܢܘ ܢܦܪܫܢܝ ܡܢ ܚܘܒܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܐܘ ܚܒܘܫܝܐ ܐܘ ܪܕܘܦܝܐ ܐܘ ܟܦܢܐ ܐܘ ܥܪܛܠܝܘܬܐ ܐܘ ܩܘܢܕܝܢܘܣ ܐܘ ܣܝܦܐ
35 Who will separate me from The Khubeh d’Meshikha {The Love of The Anointed One}? Affliction, or imprisonment, or persecution, or hunger, or nakedness, or danger, or the sword?

ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܡܛܠܬܟ ܟܠܝܘܡ ܡܝܬܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܐܬܚܫܒܢ ܐܝܟ ܐܡܪܐ ܠܢܟܣܬܐ
36 As that which is written, that “Because of You, we die every day, and we are reckoned as lambs for slaughtering.”

ܐܠܐ ܒܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܙܟܝܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܒܝܕ ܡܢ ܕܐܚܒܢ
37 But, in all these things we are victorious through Him who has Loved us.

ܡܦܣ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܐ ܡܘܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܚܝܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܘܠܐ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܚܝܠܐ ܘܠܐ ܕܩܝܡܢ ܘܠܐ ܕܥܬܝܕܢ
38 For, I am persuaded that neither death, and neither life, and neither The Malake {The Heavenly Messengers}, and neither the rulers, and neither the armies, and neither that which is present, and neither that which is future,

ܘܠܐ ܪܘܡܐ ܘܠܐ ܥܘܡܩܐ ܘܐܦ ܠܐ ܒܪܝܬܐ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܬܫܟܚ ܕܬܦܪܫܢܝ ܡܢ ܚܘܒܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܒܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
39 and neither height, and neither depth, and not even any other creature, will be able that it might separate me from The Khubeh d’Alaha {The Love of God}, which is in Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

Chapter 9
ܩܘܫܬܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܕܓܠ ܐܢܐ ܘܪܥܝܢܝ ܡܣܗܕ ܥܠܝ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
1 I speak The Qushtha {The Truth} in Meshikha {The Anointed One}, and I’m not lying, and my mind testifies unto me in The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness},

ܕܟܪܝܘܬܐ ܗܝ ܠܝ ܪܒܬܐ ܘܟܐܒܐ ܕܡܢ ܠܒܝ ܠܐ ܫܠܐ
2 that for me there is a great sadness, and the grief that is from my heart doesn’t cease,

ܡܨܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܢܐ ܩܢܘܡܝ ܚܪܡܐ ܐܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܚܠܦ ܐܚܝ ܘܐܚܝܢܝ ܕܒܒܣܪ
3 for, I have prayed that qnumi {my own self/person} would be accursed from Meshikha {The Anointed One}, in exchange for my Brothers, and my relatives, who are in the flesh,

ܕܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܕܕܝܠܗܘܢ ܗܘܬ ܣܝܡܬ ܒܢܝܐ ܘܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܘܩܝܡܐ ܘܢܡܘܣܐ ܘܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܒܗ ܘܡܘܠܟܢܐ
4 who are The Sons of Israel, of whom was The Adoption of Sons, and The Glory, and The Covenants, and The Law, and The Ministration which was in it, and The Promises,

ܘܐܒܗܬܐ ܘܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܒܣܪ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܐܠܗܐ ܥܠ ܟܠ ܕܠܗ ܬܫܒܚܢ ܘܒܘܪܟܢ ܠܥܠܡ ܥܠܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ
5 and The Fathers, from whom Meshikha {The Anointed One} has appeared in the flesh, who is Alaha {God} over all; which unto Him are praises and blessings for everlasting eternities! Amiyn {Amen}.

ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܦܠ ܢܦܠܬ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܝܣܪܝܠ
6 Yet, The Miltheh d’Alaha {The Word of God} hasn’t actually failed {lit. fallen to fall}, for, not all who are from Israel, are Israel,

ܘܐܦ ܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܡܢ ܙܪܥܗ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܢܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܬܐܡܪ ܕܒܐܝܣܚܩ ܢܬܩܪܐ ܠܟ ܙܪܥܐ
7 and also, because not all from the seed of Abraham are sons, on account of that which is written, that “In Iyskhaq {Isaac} will be called for you, The Seed.”

ܗܢܘ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܢܝܐ ܕܒܣܪܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܒܢܝܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܢܝܐ ܕܡܘܠܟܢܐ ܡܬܚܫܒܝܢ ܠܙܪܥܐ
8 Yet, that is, it is not the sons of the flesh who are The Sons of Alaha {God}, but rather, The Sons of The Mulkana {The Promise} are reckoned for The Seed.

ܕܡܘܠܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܒܙܒܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܐ ܘܢܗܘܐ ܒܪܐ ܠܣܪܐ
9 For, The Mulkana {The Promise} is this Word, that “In this time I will come, and there will be a son for Sara.”

ܘܠܘ ܗܕܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܪܦܩܐ ܟܕ ܥܡ ܚܕ ܐܒܘܢ ܐܝܣܚܩ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܫܘܬܦܘܬܐ
10 And not this only, but also, Raphqa {Rebecca}, when it was that she had intercourse with one; our father Iyskhaq {Isaac};

ܥܕܠܐ ܢܬܝܠܕܘܢ ܒܢܝܗ ܘܠܐ ܢܣܥܪܘܢ ܛܒܬܐ ܐܘ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܩܕܡܬ ܐܬܝܕܥܬ ܓܒܝܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܗܝ ܬܩܘܐ ܠܐ ܒܥܒܕܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܝܕ ܡܢ ܕܩܪܐ
11 before she gave birth unto her sons, and they hadn’t done good or evil, The Choice of Alaha {God} was known beforehand, so that it remains not by works, but rather, by means of He who had called,

ܐܬܐܡܪ ܓܝܪ ܕܩܫܝܫܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܠܙܥܘܪܐ
12 for, it was said, that “The elder one would be the slave unto the younger one,”

ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܠܝܥܩܘܒ ܪܚܡܬ ܘܠܥܣܘ ܣܢܝܬ
13 as that which is written, that “Unto Yaqub {Jacob} I have loved, and unto Isu {Esau} I have hated.”

ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܐܡܪ ܕܠܡܐ ܥܘܠܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܚܣ
14 What then shall we say? Perhaps there is unrighteousness with Alaha {God}? Far be it!

ܗܐ ܐܦ ܠܡܘܫܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܪܚܡ ܥܠ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܡܪܚܡ ܐܢܐ ܘܐܚܘܢ ܠܐܝܢܐ ܕܚܐܢ ܐܢܐ
15 Look! Also unto Mushe {Moses} He had said, that “Compassion will be upon the one whom I will have compassion, and mercy unto the one whom I will have mercy.”

ܠܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܘܠܐ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܡܢ ܕܪܗܛ ܐܠܐ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܪܚܡܢܐ
16 Therefore, it isn’t by the one who wills, and neither by the one who runs, but rather, by Alaha {God}, The Merciful One.

ܐܡܪ ܓܝܪ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܠܦܪܥܘܢ ܕܠܗ ܠܗܕܐ ܐܩܝܡܬܟ ܕܐܚܘܐ ܒܟ ܚܝܠܝ ܘܕܢܬܟܪܙ ܫܡܝ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܟܠܗ
17 For, in The Kathaba {The Scripture}, He had said unto Phereun {Pharaoh}, “For unto this I raised you up, so that I might show My Power in you, and that My Name would be Proclaimed in all the Earth.”

ܡܕܝܢ ܥܠ ܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܗܘ ܡܪܚܡ ܘܥܠ ܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܡܩܫܐ
18 Therefore, concerning the one whom He desires, He is merciful, and concerning the one whom He desires, He hardens.

ܘܟܒܪ ܬܐܡܪ ܕܥܠ ܡܢܐ ܪܫܐ ܡܢܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܩܘܡ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܨܒܝܢܗ
19 And perhaps you would say, “Upon what does He fault? For, who is it that will stand to resist His will?”

ܐܢܬ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܢ ܐܢܬ ܐܘ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܕܦܬܓܡܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܝܗܒ ܐܢܬ ܕܠܡܐ ܐܡܪܐ ܓܒܝܠܬܐ ܠܡܢ ܕܓܒܠܗ ܕܠܡܢܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܓܒܠܬܢܝ
20 You, therefore, who are you, O son of man, that you would give a reprimand to Alaha {God}? Perhaps the lump speaks to He who formed it; ‘Why did you form me thus?’

ܐܘ ܠܐ ܫܠܝܛ ܦܚܪܐ ܥܠ ܛܝܢܗ ܕܡܢܗ ܡܢ ܓܒܝܠܬܐ ܢܥܒܕ ܡܐܢܐ ܚܕ ܠܐܝܩܪܐ ܘܚܕ ܠܨܥܪܐ
21 Or, doesn’t The Potter have power over His clay, so that from the lump, to make one vessel for honor, and one for disgrace?

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܨܒܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܢܚܘܐ ܪܘܓܙܗ ܘܢܘܕܥ ܚܝܠܗ ܐܝܬܝ ܒܣܘܓܐܐ ܕܡܓܪܬ ܪܘܚܗ ܪܘܓܙܐ ܥܠ ܡܐܢܐ ܕܪܘܓܙܐ ܕܓܡܝܪܝܢ ܠܐܒܕܢܐ
22 But, if Alaha {God}, desiring that He might show His wrath, and to make known Khayleh {His Power}, brought, in an abundance of His long-suffering Spirit, wrath upon The Vessels of Wrath, who were completed for destruction,

ܘܐܫܦܥ ܪܚܡܘܗܝ ܥܠ ܡܐܢܐ ܕܪܚܡܐ ܕܡܛܝܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܠܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ
23 and has poured His Mercies upon The Vessels of Mercy, the ones who were prepared for Alaha {God}; for His Glory,

ܕܐܝܬܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܩܪܝܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܡܢ ܥܡܡܐ
24 which are we, The Called Ones, not only being from the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews}, but also, from the Amme {the Gentiles},

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܦ ܒܗܘܫܥ ܐܡܪ ܕܐܩܪܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܘ ܥܡܝ ܥܡܐ ܕܝܠܝ ܘܠܠܐ ܐܬܪܚܡܬ ܐܬܪܚܡܬ
25 as, for example, which also in Hushe {Hosea}, He said, “I will call them who were not My people, ‘My Own People’, and unto them who were not loved, ‘The Beloved,’

ܢܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܕܘܟܬܐ ܟܪ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐ ܥܡܝ ܬܡܢ ܢܬܩܪܘܢ ܒܢܝܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܚܝܐ
26 for, it will be in the place where the ones who were called, ‘You were not My people,’ there they will be called, ‘The Sons for The Living Alaha {God}.’”

ܐܫܥܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܟܪܙ ܥܠ ܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܕܐܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܡܢܝܢܐ ܕܒܢܝ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܐܝܟ ܚܠܐ ܕܒܝܡܐ ܫܪܟܢܐ ܕܡܢܗܘܢ ܢܚܐ
27 Then, IshaYa {Isaiah} proclaimed concerning The Sons of Israel: “That if the number of The Sons of Israel would be as the sand that is at the sea, a remnant that is from them, will live,

ܡܠܬܐ ܓܪܡ ܘܦܣܩ ܘܢܥܒܕܝܗ ܡܪܝܐ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ
28 the matter being decided and determined, and MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} will do it upon the Earth,”

ܘܐܝܟ ܡܕܡ ܕܩܕܡ ܐܡܪ ܗܘ ܐܫܥܝܐ ܕܐܠܘ ܠܐ ܡܪܝܐ ܨܒܐܘܬ ܐܘܬܪ ܠܢ ܣܪܝܕܐ ܐܝܟ ܣܕܘܡ ܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܘܠܥܡܘܪܐ ܡܬܕܡܝܢ ܗܘܝܢ
29 and also, according to the thing which he, IshaYa {Isaiah}, had said beforehand, that “If MarYa Tsabauth {The Lord-YHWH of Hosts/the Heavenly Armies} had not left for us a remnant, we would be existing as Sadum {Sodom} has become, and we would have been likened unto Amura {Gomorrah}.”

ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܐܡܪ ܕܥܡܡܐ ܕܠܐ ܪܗܛܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܬܪ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܐܕܪܟܘ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܡܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܗܝ
30 What then will we say? That the Amme {the Gentiles}, who have not run after righteousness, have apprehended righteousness, yet, The Righteousness which is from Haymanutha {Faith},

ܝܣܪܝܠ ܕܝܢ ܕܪܗܛ ܗܘܐ ܒܬܪ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܠܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܠܐ ܐܕܪܟ
31 but, Israel, who had run after The Law of Righteousness, didn’t apprehend unto The Law of Righteousness.

ܡܛܠ ܡܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܥܒܕܘܗܝ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܐܬܬܩܠܘ ܓܝܪ ܒܟܐܦܐ ܕܬܘܩܠܬܐ
32 Because of what? Because it wasn’t from Haymanutha {Faith}, but rather, from the works of The Namusa {The Law}, for, they stumbled at The Stone of Stumbling,

ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܗܐ ܣܐܡ ܐܢܐ ܒܨܗܝܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܕܬܘܩܠܬܐ ܘܟܐܦܐ ܕܡܟܫܘܠܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܒܗ ܢܗܝܡܢ ܠܐ ܢܒܗܬ
33 as that which is written: “Look! I place in Zion, The Stone of Stumbling, and The Stone of Offense, and the ones who trust in Him will not be ashamed.”

Chapter 10
ܐܚܝ ܨܒܝܢܐ ܕܠܒܝ ܘܒܥܘܬܝ ܕܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܚܠܦܝܗܘܢ ܕܢܚܘܢ
1 My Brothers, the desire of my heart, and my prayer, which is unto Alaha {God} for them, is that they might have Life.

ܡܣܗܕ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܛܢܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܬ ܒܗܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܠܘ ܒܝܕܥܬܐ
2 For, I testify concerning them, that The Tanana d’Alaha {The Zeal of God} is in them, only not in knowledge.

ܟܐܢܘܬܗ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܘ ܐܠܐ ܒܥܘ ܕܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܕܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܢܩܝܡܘܢ ܘܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܠܟܐܢܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܐܫܬܥܒܕܘ
3 But, The Kinutheh d’Alaha {The Righteousness of God}, they haven’t known, but rather, they have sought to establish the righteousness of their own souls, and because of this, they haven’t submitted unto The Kinutheh d’Alaha {The Righteousness of God}.

ܣܟܗ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܗܘ ܠܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܠܟܠ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ
4 For, Meshikha {The Anointed One} is the end of The Law, for Righteousness, unto all who Believe.

ܡܘܫܐ ܓܝܪ ܗܟܢܐ ܟܬܒ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܕܒܢܡܘܣܐ ܕܡܢ ܕܢܥܒܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܢܚܐ ܒܗܝܢ
5 For, Mushe {Moses} thus wrote of the kenutha {the righteousness} which is in The Namusa {The Law}, that “The one who does these things, will live by them.”

ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܡܪܐ ܕܠܐ ܬܐܡܪ ܒܠܒܟ ܕܡܢܘ ܣܠܩ ܠܫܡܝܐ ܘܐܚܬ ܠܡܫܝܚܐ
6 Yet, The Kenutha {The Righteousness} which is by Haymanutha {Faith}, speaks thus: “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who has ascended up to the Shmaya {the Heavens} and brought down Meshikha {The Anointed One}?’

ܘܡܢܘ ܢܚܬ ܠܬܗܘܡܐ ܕܫܝܘܠ ܘܐܣܩ ܠܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ
7 And, ‘Who has descend unto the abyss of Sheul, and brought up Meshikha {The Anointed One} from the beth miythe {the house/abode of the dead}?’”

ܐܠܐ ܡܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܩܪܝܒ ܗܘ ܠܟ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܠܦܘܡܟ ܘܠܠܒܟ ܗܕܐ ܗܝ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܡܟܪܙܝܢ ܚܢܢ
8 But, what does it say? “The Word is near unto you; unto your mouth, and unto your heart,” this is The Miltha d’Haymanutha {The Word of Faith} which we Proclaim!

ܘܐܢ ܬܘܕܐ ܒܦܘܡܟ ܒܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܬܗܝܡܢ ܒܠܒܟ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܩܝܡܗ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܬܚܐ
9 And if you confess belief with your mouth, in Maran Eshu {Our Lord Y’shu}, and Believe in your heart that Alaha {God} has raised Him from the beth miythe {the house/abode of the dead}, you will Live!

ܠܒܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܒܗ ܡܙܕܕܩ ܘܦܘܡܐ ܕܡܘܕܐ ܒܗ ܚܝܐ
10 For, the heart that Believes {or, Trusts} in Him, is justified, and the mouth that confesses {belief} in Him, Lives.

ܐܡܪ ܓܝܪ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܟܠ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܒܗ ܠܐ ܢܒܗܬ
11 For, The Kathabe {The Scripture} said: “All who Believes {or Trusts} in Him, will not be ashamed.”

ܘܒܗܕܐ ܠܐ ܦܪܫ ܠܐ ܠܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܠܐ ܠܐܪܡܝܐ ܚܕ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܥܬܝܪ ܒܟܠ ܕܩܪܐ ܠܗ
12 And in this, there is no distinction, neither for the Yehudaye {the Judeans/the Jews}, and neither for the Armaye {the Arameans}, for, there is one MarYa {Lord-YHWH} of all, who is abundant with all who call unto Him,

ܟܠ ܓܝܪ ܕܢܩܪܐ ܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܢܚܐ
13 for: “All who call on The Name of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} will Live.”

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܩܪܘܢ ܠܐܝܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܒܗ ܐܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܢܗܝܡܢܘܢ ܠܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܫܡܥܘܗܝ ܐܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܢܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܟܪܙܢܐ
14 How then will they call, unto whom they haven’t believed? Or, how will they believe unto whom they haven’t heard? Or, how will they hear without a Proclaimer?

ܐܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܢܟܪܙܘܢ ܐܢ ܠܐ ܢܫܬܠܚܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܡܐ ܝܐܝܢ ܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܡܣܒܪܝ ܫܠܡܐ ܘܕܡܣܒܪܝ ܛܒܬܐ
15 Or, how will they Proclaim if they are not sent? As that which is written; “What beautiful feet are those which bring My Hopeful Message of Shlama {Peace}, and those who bring My Hopeful Message of Good things.”

ܐܠܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܫܬܡܥܘ ܠܣܒܪܬܐ ܕܐܘܢܓܠܝܘܢ ܐܫܥܝܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܡܪܝ ܡܢܘ ܗܝܡܢ ܠܒܪܬ ܩܠܢ
16 But, not all have responded to The Sabartha d’Evangeliun {The Hopeful Message of The Good News}, for, IshaYa {Isaiah} said, “Mari {My Lord}, who has believed The Utterance of our voice?”

ܡܟܝܠ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܡܢ ܡܫܡܥ ܐܕܢܐ ܗܝ ܘܡܫܡܥ ܐܕܢܐ ܡܢ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
17 Therefore, Haymanutha {Faith} is from the hearing ear, and the hearing ear from The Miltha d’Alaha {The Word of God}.

ܐܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܠܐ ܫܡܥܘ ܘܗܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܐܪܥܐ ܢܦܩܬ ܒܪܬ ܩܠܗܘܢ ܘܒܣܘܦܝܗ ܕܬܒܝܠ ܡܠܝܗܘܢ
18 But, I say, perhaps they didn’t hear? Look! “In all the land their uttered voice went out, and their words to the ends of the world.”

ܐܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܛܢܟܘܢ ܒܥܡ ܕܠܐ ܥܡ ܘܒܥܡܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܛܦܝܣ ܐܪܓܙܟܘܢ
19 But, I say, perhaps Israel didn’t know? Formerly, Mushe {Moses} thus said: “You will be jealous with a People who are not a People, and with a People who are not persuaded, you will be angry.”

ܐܫܥܝܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܚ ܘܐܡܪ ܕܐܬܚܙܝܬ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܒܥܐܘܢܝ ܘܐܫܬܟܚܬ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܠܝ ܠܐ ܫܐܠܘ
20 Yet, IshaYa {Isaiah} was bold, and said: “I was shown unto those who didn’t seek Me, and I was present unto those who didn’t ask about Me.”

ܠܝܣܪܝܠ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܕܦܫܛܬ ܐܝܕܝ ܝܘܡܐ ܟܠܗ ܠܘܬ ܥܡܐ ܕܡܬܚܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܬܛܦܝܣ
21 But, unto Israel He says: “I have stretched out My Hands all day towards an Ama {a People} who contend, and are not persuaded.”


Chapter 11
ܐܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܠܡܐ ܕܚܩܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܥܡܗ ܚܣ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܢ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܐܢܐ ܡܢ ܙܪܥܗ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܡܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܕܒܢܝܡܝܢ
1 But, I say, that perhaps Alaha {God} has cast off His People? Far be it! For, I also am from Israel. I am from the seed of Abraham; from The Tribe of Benyamin {Benjamin}.

ܠܐ ܕܚܩ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܥܡܗ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܝܕܝܥ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܐܘ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܕܐܠܝܐ ܡܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܟܕ ܩܒܠ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܥܠ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܘܐܡܪ
2 Alaha {God} didn’t cast off His People, who, from before, were known to Him, or, don’t you know in The Kathaba {The Scripture}, how that EliYa {Elijah} said, when he was complaining unto Alaha {God} about Israel, and said:

ܡܪܝ ܠܢܒܝܝܟ ܩܛܠܘ ܘܠܡܕܒܚܝܟ ܣܚܦܘ ܘܐܢܐ ܗܘ ܒܠܚܘܕܝ ܐܫܬܚܪܬ ܘܒܥܝܢ ܠܢܦܫܝ
3 “Mari {My Lord}, they have killed Your Prophets, and thrown down Your Altar, and I alone am left, and they seek for my soul.”

ܘܐܬܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܒܓܠܝܢܐ ܕܗܐ ܫܒܩܬ ܠܢܦܫܝ ܫܒܥܐ ܐܠܦܝܢ ܓܒܪܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܠ ܒܘܪܟܝܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܒܪܟܘ ܘܠܐ ܣܓܕܘ ܠܒܥܠܐ
4 And it was said unto him, in a revelation: “Look! I have spared for My Soul seven thousand men, which on their knees haven’t bowed, and haven’t worshiped Bala {Baal}.”

ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܒܗܢܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܫܪܟܢܐ ܗܘ ܐܫܬܚܪ ܒܓܒܝܬܐ ܕܛܝܒܘܬܐ
5 Thus, also at this time, He has left a remnant by The Gabaytha d’Taybutha {The Choosing of Grace}.

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܥܒܕܐ ܘܐܢ ܠܐ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܠܐ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܥܒܕܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܘܐܢ ܠܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܠܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܥܒܕܐ
6 But, if by Taybutha {Grace}, it wasn’t from works; and if not, Taybutha {Grace} isn’t Taybutha {Grace}. But, if by works, it wasn’t from Taybutha {Grace}; and if not, work isn’t work.

ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܗܝ ܕܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚ ܓܒܝܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܫܟܚܬ ܫܪܟܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܥܘܪܘ ܒܠܒܗܘܢ
7 What then? That which Israel was seeking, wasn’t found, yet, The Gabitha {The Chosen Ones} found it, but, all the rest were blinded in their hearts.

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܡܕܥܪܢܝܬܐ ܘܥܝܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܒܚܪܘܢ ܒܗܝܢ ܘܐܕܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܢܫܡܥܘܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܝܘܡܢܐ
8 As which is written, that “Alaha {God} gave unto them a contentious spirit, and eyes which they do not notice with, and ears which do not hear; until this very day.”

ܘܕܘܝܕ ܬܘܒ ܐܡܪ ܢܗܘܐ ܦܬܘܪܗܘܢ ܩܕܡܝܗܘܢ ܠܦܚܐ ܘܦܘܪܥܢܗܘܢ ܠܬܘܩܠܬܐ
9 And again, David said: “Their table will be before them for a snare, and their recompense for a stumbling-block,

ܢܚܫܟܢ ܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܚܙܘܢ ܘܚܨܗܘܢ ܒܟܠ ܙܒܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܟܦܝܦ
10 their eyes will be darkened, so that they will not see, and their backs will always be bent.”

ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܠܡܐ ܐܬܬܩܠܘ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܦܠܘܢ ܚܣ ܐܠܐ ܒܬܘܩܠܬܗܘܢ ܕܝܠܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܝܐ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܠܛܢܢܗܘܢ
11 But, I say, that perhaps they had stumbled so as that they would fall? Far be it! But rather, through their own stumbling, Life was given unto the Amme {the Gentiles}, unto their envy.

ܘܐܢ ܬܘܩܠܬܗܘܢ ܗܘܬ ܥܘܬܪܐ ܠܥܠܡܐ ܘܚܝܒܘܬܗܘܢ ܥܘܬܪܐ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܟܡܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܫܘܡܠܝܗܘܢ
12 And if their stumbling was wealth for the world, and their condemnation wealth for the Amme {the Gentiles}, how much more, therefore, their completion?

ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܝܬܝ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ ܠܬܫܡܫܬܝ ܡܫܒܚ ܐܢܐ
13 Therefore, unto you I speak; unto the Amme {the Gentiles}. I who am a Shlikha {a Sent One} of the Amme {the Gentiles}; unto my Ministry I am boasting,

ܕܠܡܐ ܐܛܢ ܠܒܢܝ ܒܣܪܝ ܘܐܚܐ ܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ
14 so that perhaps I might arouse to envy the sons of my flesh, and make some men Live from them,

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܡܣܬܠܝܢܘܬܗܘܢ ܬܪܥܘܬܐ ܠܥܠܡܐ ܗܘܬ ܟܡܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܦܘܢܝܗܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܚܝܐ ܕܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ
15 for, if, their rejection was The Reconciliation for the world, how much more, therefore, is their Restitution, but, Life which is from the beth miythe {the house/abode of the dead}?

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܪܫܝܬܐ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܐܦ ܓܒܝܠܬܐ ܘܐܢ ܥܩܪܐ ܩܕܝܫ ܗܘ ܐܦ ܣܘܟܐ
16 If, therefore, the firstfruit is Holy, the lump is also, and if the root is Holy, the branches are also,

ܘܐܢ ܡܢ ܣܘܟܐ ܐܬܦܫܚ ܘܐܢܬ ܕܙܝܬܐ ܐܢܬ ܕܒܪܐ ܐܬܛܥܡܬ ܒܕܘܟܝܬܗܝܢ ܘܗܘܝܬ ܫܘܬܦܐ ܠܥܩܪܗ ܘܠܫܘܡܢܗ ܕܙܝܬܐ
17 and if branches were cut off, and you, you of an wild olive tree were grafted into their place, and have became a partner unto the root and to the fatness of the olive tree,

ܠܐ ܬܫܬܒܗܪ ܥܠ ܣܘܟܐ ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܫܬܒܗܪ ܐܢܬ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܬ ܫܩܝܠ ܠܗ ܠܥܩܪܐ ܐܠܐ ܗܘ ܥܩܪܐ ܫܩܝܠ ܠܟ
18 don’t boast over the branches, but, if you boast; it was not you who were taken up for the root, but rather, the root is taken up for you.

ܘܟܒܪ ܬܐܡܪ ܕܣܘܟܐ ܕܐܬܦܫܚ ܕܐܢܐ ܒܕܘܟܝܬܗܝܢ ܐܬܛܥܡ
19 And, perhaps you will say of the branches, that “They were cut off, so that I, in their place, could be grafted in.”

ܫܦܝܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܐܬܦܫܚܘ ܐܢܬ ܕܝܢ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܩܡܬ ܠܐ ܬܬܪܝܡ ܒܪܥܝܢܟ ܐܠܐ ܕܚܠ
20 Good! These were cut off because of their unbelief, but, you stand by Haymanutha {Faith}, so don’t be exalted in your mind, but rather, fear.

ܐܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܥܠ ܣܘܟܐ ܕܡܢ ܟܝܢܗܝܢ ܠܐ ܚܣ ܕܠܡܐ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܥܠܝܟ ܢܚܘܣ
21 For, if Alaha {God}, concerning the branches from their nature, didn’t pity them, perhaps not even on you there will be pity.

ܚܙܝ ܗܟܝܠ ܒܣܝܡܘܬܗ ܘܩܫܝܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܥܠ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܢܦܠܘ ܩܫܝܘܬܐ ܥܠܝܟ ܕܝܢ ܒܣܝܡܘܬܐ ܐܢ ܬܩܘܐ ܒܗ ܒܒܣܝܡܘܬܐ ܘܐܢ ܠܐ ܐܦ ܐܢܬ ܬܬܦܫܚ
22 Behold therefore, the kindness and the harshness of Alaha {God}: concerning those who fell, harshness; yet, concerning you, kindness, if you remain in His kindness, and if not, you also will be cut off!

ܘܗܢܘܢ ܐܢ ܠܐ ܢܩܘܘܢ ܒܚܣܝܪܘܬ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܗܘܢ ܐܦ ܗܢܘܢ ܢܬܛܥܡܘܢ ܡܫܟܚ ܓܝܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܬܘܒ ܢܛܥܡ ܐܢܘܢ
23 And those, if they don’t remain in their lack of belief, even they will be grafted in, for Alaha {God} is able that He may graft them in again.

ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܢܬ ܕܡܢ ܙܝܬܐ ܐܢܬ ܕܒܪܐ ܗܘ ܕܒܟܝܢܟ ܐܬܦܫܚܬ ܘܕܠܐ ܒܟܝܢܟ ܐܬܛܥܡܬ ܒܙܝܬܐ ܛܒܐ ܟܡܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܗܢܘܢ ܐܢ ܢܬܛܥܡܘܢ ܒܙܝܬܐ ܕܟܝܢܗܘܢ
24 For, if you; you who are from the wild olive tree, that which is so by your nature, were cut off, and were grafted into that which is not your nature; into the good olive tree; then how much more those, if they are grafted into the olive tree, which is of their nature?

ܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܬܕܥܘܢ ܐܚܝ ܐܪܙܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܬܗܘܘܢ ܚܟܝܡܝܢ ܒܪܥܝܢ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܕܥܘܝܪܘܬ ܠܒܐ ܡܢ ܐܬܪ ܩܠܝܠ ܗܘܬ ܠܝܣܪܝܠ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܥܘܠ ܡܘܠܝܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ
25 Yet, I desire that you should know this Mystery, my Brothers, so that you will not become wise in the thoughts of your soul; that blindness of heart, for a little space, has come unto Israel, until the completion of Amme {the Gentiles} are brought in.

ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܟܠܗ ܝܣܪܝܠ ܢܚܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܡܢ ܨܗܝܘܢ ܦܪܘܩܐ ܘܢܗܦܟ ܥܘܠܐ ܡܢ ܝܥܩܘܒ
26 And then all Israel will Live {or, will be saved}, as it is written: “The Saviour will come from Zion, and He will turn unrighteousness from Yaqub {Jacob},

ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܬܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܝܬܩܐ ܗܝ ܕܡܢ ܠܘܬܝ ܡܐ ܕܫܒܩܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܚܛܗܝܗܘܢ
27 and then, for them will be The Covenant, that one from Me unto them, when I have forgiven them for their sins.”

ܒܐܘܢܓܠܝܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܥܠܕܒܒܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܛܠܬܟܘܢ ܘܒܓܒܝܘܬܐ ܚܒܝܒܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܐܒܗܬܐ
28 Yet, in The Evangeliun {The Good Message}, they are enemies, because of you; and with regard to The Choosing, they are dearly loved, because of the fathers,

ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܗܦܟ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܡܘܗܒܬܗ ܘܒܩܪܝܢܗ
29 for, Alaha {God} is not changeable with His Gift and with His Calling.

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܬܛܦܝܣܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܘܗܫܐ ܐܬܚܢܢܬܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܠܐ ܡܬܛܦܝܣܢܘܬܗܘܢ ܕܗܢܘܢ
30 For, as you also, from before, hadn’t been obedient unto Alaha {God}, and now have mercy, because of the ones who were disobedient,

ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܗܠܝܢ ܠܐ ܐܬܛܦܝܣܘ ܗܫܐ ܠܪܚܡܐ ܕܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܕܐܦ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܪܚܡܐ
31 thus also, these are not now obedient, unto the mercies which are upon you, so that even upon them, there will be mercies.

ܚܒܫ ܓܝܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܒܠܐ ܡܬܛܦܝܣܢܘܬܐ ܕܥܠ ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܢܪܚܡ
32 For, Alaha {God} has included every man among the disobedient, so that He could have compassion upon every man.

ܐܘ ܥܘܡܩܐ ܕܥܘܬܪܐ ܘܚܟܡܬܐ ܘܡܕܥܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܡܫ ܕܝܢܘܗܝ ܘܐܘܪܚܬܗ ܠܐ ܡܬܥܩܒܢ
33 Oh! The depth of The Wealth, and The Wisdom, and The Knowledge of Alaha {God}; of His Judgments, man cannot examine, and His Ways, they cannot seek.

ܡܢܘ ܓܝܪ ܝܕܥ ܪܥܝܢܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܐܘ ܡܢܘ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܒܥܠ ܡܠܟܐ
34 For, “Who has known The Mind of MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, or, who has been a master counselor to Him?”

ܘܡܢܘ ܩܕܡ ܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܘܟܢ ܢܣܒ ܡܢܗ
35 And, “Who first gave unto Him, and then received from Him?”

ܡܛܠ ܕܟܠ ܡܢܗ ܘܟܠ ܒܗ ܘܟܠ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܕܠܗ ܬܫܒܚܢ ܘܒܘܪܟܢ ܠܥܠܡ ܥܠܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ
36 Because, all are from Him, and all are by Him, and all are in His Hand, so that unto Him are the Praises and the Blessings, unto everlasting eternities. Amiyn {Amen}.

Chapter 12
ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܐܚܝ ܒܪܚܡܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܬܩܝܡܘܢ ܦܓܪܝܟܘܢ ܕܒܚܬܐ ܚܝܬܐ ܘܩܕܝܫܬܐ ܘܡܩܒܠܬܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܒܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܡܠܝܠܬܐ
1 I require from you, then, my Brothers, by the mercies of Alaha {God}, that you be maintaining your bodies as a living, and holy, and acceptable sacrifice unto Alaha {God}, in pure worship.

ܘܠܐ ܬܬܕܡܘܢ ܠܥܠܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܫܬܚܠܦܘ ܒܚܘܕܬܐ ܕܪܥܝܢܝܟܘܢ ܘܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܦܪܫܝܢ ܐܝܢܘ ܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܛܒܐ ܘܡܩܒܠܐ ܘܓܡܝܪܐ
2 And do not be compared to this world, but rather, be changed by the renovation of your thoughts, and be distinguishing that which is the will of Alaha {God}; the good, and the acceptable, and the perfect.

ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܒܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܕܐܬܝܗܒܬ ܠܝ ܠܟܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܬܗܘܘܢ ܡܬܪܥܝܢ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܐ ܕܘܠܐ ܕܬܬܪܥܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܕܬܗܘܘܢ ܡܬܪܥܝܢ ܒܢܟܦܘܬܐ ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܐܝܟ ܕܦܠܓ ܠܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܒܡܫܘܚܬܐ
3 Yet, I say unto all of you, by The Taybutha {The Grace} which was given unto me, that you do not have thoughts besides from what is proper that you should be thinking, but rather, that you have thoughts in modesty, as Alaha {God} has divided-up for every man Haymanutha {Faith} in moderation.

ܐܝܟܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܒܚܕ ܦܓܪܐ ܗܕܡܐ ܣܓܝܐܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܗܕܡܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܚܕ ܣܘܥܪܢܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ
4 For, as that in one body, are many members, and unto all the members there is not one function for them,

ܗܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܕܣܓܝܐܐ ܚܢܢ ܚܕ ܚܢܢ ܦܓܪ ܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܚܕ ܚܕ ܡܢܢ ܕܝܢ ܗܕܡܐ ܚܢܢ ܕܚܕܕܐ
5 thus, also we; we who are many; we are one Body in Meshikha {The Anointed One}, each one from Him, yet, we are members of one another.

ܐܠܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܢ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܡܫܚܠܦܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܕܐܬܝܗܒܬ ܠܢ ܐܝܬ ܕܢܒܝܘܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܫܘܚܬܐ ܕܗܝܡܢܘܬܗ
6 But, there are for us various Gifts, according to The Taybutha {The Grace} which was given unto us. There is that Gift of Prophecy, given according to the measure of Haymanutha {Faith};

ܘܐܝܬ ܕܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܒܬܫܡܫܬܗ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܡܠܦܢܐ ܗܘ ܒܝܘܠܦܢܗ
7 and there is that Gift of Ministration that is for him who is in Ministry; and there is that Gift of the Teacher in his Doctrine;

ܘܐܝܬ ܕܡܒܝܐܢܐ ܗܘ ܒܒܘܝܐܗ ܘܕܝܗܒ ܒܦܫܝܛܘܬܐ ܘܕܩܐܡ ܒܪܫܐ ܒܚܦܝܛܘܬܐ ܘܕܡܪܚܡ ܒܦܨܝܚܘܬܐ
8 and there is that Gift of an Exhorter in his Encouragement; and that of the Giver with Liberality; and he who is established at the head {i.e. a Leader} in Earnestness; and that of the Compassionate in Cheerfulness.

ܘܠܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܢܟܝܠ ܚܘܒܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܣܢܝܢ ܠܒܝܫܬܐ ܘܡܬܢܩܦܝܢ ܠܛܒܬܐ
9 And let not your Love be deceitful, but rather, be an enemy to evil things, and adhering unto the good things.

ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܪܚܡܝܢ ܠܐܚܝܟܘܢ ܘܡܚܒܝܢ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܡܩܕܡܝܢ ܡܝܩܪܝܢ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ
10 Be compassionate unto your Brothers, and loving one unto another; be preoccupied with honoring one unto another.

ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܚܦܝܛܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܚܒܢܢܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܪܬܚܝܢ ܒܪܘܚ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܦܠܚܝܢ ܠܡܪܟܘܢ
11 Be diligent, and not idle. Be fervent in The Rukh {The Spirit}. Be working for Markun {Your Lord}.

ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܚܕܝܢ ܒܣܒܪܟܘܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܡܣܝܒܪܝܢ ܐܘܠܨܢܝܟܘܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܐܡܝܢܝܢ ܒܨܠܘܬܐ
12 Be rejoicing in your Hope. Be enduring your afflictions. Be constant in Tslutha {Prayer}.

ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܡܫܬܘܬܦܝܢ ܠܣܢܝܩܘܬܐ ܕܩܕܝܫܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܪܚܡܝܢ ܐܟܣܢܝܐ
13 Be sharers for the needs of The Qadishe {The Holy Ones}. Be compassionate to strangers.

ܒܪܟܘ ܠܪܕܘܦܝܟܘܢ ܒܪܟܘ ܘܠܐ ܬܠܘܛܘܢ
14 Give blessings unto your persecutors; blessing them and not cursing them.

ܚܕܘ ܥܡ ܕܚܕܝܢ ܘܒܟܘ ܥܡ ܕܒܟܝܢ
15 Rejoicing with those who are rejoicing, and weeping with those who are weeping.

ܘܡܕܡ ܕܡܬܪܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܐܦ ܥܠ ܐܚܝܟܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܬܬܪܥܘܢ ܪܥܝܢܐ ܪܡܐ ܐܠܐ ܩܦܘ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܟܝܟܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܚܟܝܡܝܢ ܒܪܥܝܢ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ
16 And the thing that you want, concerning your souls, also want concerning your Brothers; and not thinking lofty thoughts, but rather, adhere unto them who are lowly, and not who are wise in the thoughts of their soul.

ܘܠܐ ܬܦܪܥܘܢ ܠܐܢܫ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܚܠܦ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܢܬܒܛܠ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܬܥܒܕܘܢ ܛܒܬܐ ܩܕܡ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ
17 And don’t repay unto men evil in exchange for evil, but rather, be concerned for them, so that you do good before all the sons of men.

ܘܐܢ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܡܢ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܥܡ ܟܠ ܒܪܐܢܫ ܫܠܡܐ ܥܒܕܘ
18 And if possible, as from that which is respecting you, make Shlama {Peace} with every son of man.

ܘܠܐ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܬܒܥܝܢ ܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܚܒܝܒܝ ܐܠܐ ܗܒܘ ܐܬܪܐ ܠܪܘܓܙܐ ܟܬܝܒ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܢ ܠܐ ܬܥܒܕ ܕܝܢܐ ܠܢܦܫܟ ܐܢܐ ܐܥܒܕ ܕܝܢܟ ܐܡܪ ܐܠܗܐ
19 And don’t be avenging your souls, my dear ones, but rather, give place unto wrath, for it is written, that “If you don’t perform judgment for your soul, I will perform your judgment, says Alaha {God}.”

ܘܐܢ ܟܦܢ ܒܥܠܕܒܒܟ ܐܘܟܠܝܗܝ ܘܐܢ ܨܗܐ ܐܫܩܝܗܝ ܘܐܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܬܥܒܕ ܠܗ ܓܘܡܪܐ ܕܢܘܪܐ ܬܩܒܪ ܥܠ ܩܪܩܦܬܗ
20 And “If your enemy hungers, feed him, and if thirsty, give him water; and if you do these things unto him, coals of fire will be heaped up on his head.”

ܠܐ ܬܙܟܝܟܘܢ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܙܟܐܘܗ ܠܒܝܫܬܐ ܒܛܒܬܐ
21 Not overcome with evil, but rather, overcoming evil with good.

Chapter 13
ܟܠ ܢܦܫ ܠܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܕܪܒܘܬܐ ܬܫܬܥܒܕ ܠܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܕܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܦܩܝܕܝܢ
1 Every soul should be subjected unto the higher authorities. For, there is no authority that isn’t from Alaha {God}, and those authorities which exist, are from Alaha’s {God’s} appointment.

ܡܢ ܕܩܐܡ ܗܟܝܠ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܩܐܡ ܘܗܠܝܢ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܠܘܩܒܠܗܘܢ ܕܝܢܐ ܢܣܒܘܢ
2 Therefore, the one who stands to oppose the authority, stands to oppose The Command of Alaha {God}, and these who are standing to oppose them, will receive judgment.

ܕܝܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܐ ܗܘܘ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܠܥܒܕܐ ܛܒܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܒܝܫܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܠܐ ܬܕܚܠ ܡܢ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܥܒܕ ܛܒܬܐ ܘܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܡܢܗ
3 For, judges are not feared unto the good doers, but rather, unto the evil ones. Do you desire then not to have fear from the authority? Do good, and praise will be to you from it,

ܡܫܡܫܢܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܟ ܠܛܒܬܐ ܘܐܢ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܕܚܠ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܣܪܝܩܐܝܬ ܐܣܝܪ ܠܣܦܣܪܐ ܡܫܡܫܢܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܬܒܘܥܐ ܕܪܘܓܙܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܒܕܝܢ ܒܝܫܬܐ
4 for, he is the Minister of Alaha {God}, but, unto you for the good. And if you do evil, fear, for, he isn’t needlessly fastened to the sword, for, he is the Minister of Alaha {God}, and the avenger of wrath, for those who are doing evil.

ܘܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܠܨܐ ܠܢ ܕܢܫܬܥܒܕ ܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܪܘܓܙܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܡܛܠ ܬܐܪܬܢ
5 And because of this, we are constrained that we should be subservient, not only because of wrath, but also, because of our conscience.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܦ ܟܣܦ ܪܫܐ ܝܗܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܫܡܫܢܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܥܠܝܗܝܢ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܩܝܡܝܢ
6 Because of this, you also give the head-silver {the tribute tax i.e. poll taxes}, for, they are Ministers of Alaha {God} concerning these established things.

ܦܪܘܥܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܠܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܐܝܟ ܕܡܬܬܚܝܒ ܠܗ ܠܡܢ ܕܟܣܦ ܪܫܐ ܟܣܦ ܪܫܐ ܘܠܡܢ ܕܡܟܣܐ ܡܟܣܐ ܘܠܡܢ ܕܕܚܠܬܐ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܘܠܡܢ ܕܐܝܩܪܐ ܐܝܩܪܐ
7 Therefore, repay unto every man according to that which is owed unto him; unto whomever which is owed head-silver, head-silver, and unto whomever is owed sales tax, sales tax, and unto whomever is owed reverence, reverence, and unto whom is owed honor, honor.

ܘܠܐܢܫ ܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܬܚܘܒܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ ܠܡܚܒܘ ܡܢ ܕܡܚܒ ܓܝܪ ܠܚܒܪܗ ܢܡܘܣܐ ܡܠܝ
8 And unto a man, owe not a thing, but rather, to love one unto another, for, he who is loving unto his friend, has fulfilled The Namusa {The Law}.

ܐܦ ܗܝ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܠܐ ܬܩܛܘܠ ܘܠܐ ܬܓܘܪ ܘܠܐ ܬܓܢܘܒ ܘܠܐ ܬܪܓ ܘܐܢ ܐܝܬ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܒܗܕܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܡܫܬܠܡ ܕܬܪܚܡ ܠܩܪܝܒܟ ܐܝܟ ܢܦܫܟ
9 For, also, that which says: “You shall not commit murder,” and “You shall not commit adultery,” and “You shall not not steal,” and “You shall not covet,” and if there is other Commands, in this Word it is fulfilled, that “You shall be compassionate unto your neighbor, as your own soul.”

ܚܘܒܐ ܠܩܪܝܒܗ ܒܝܫܬܐ ܠܐ ܣܥܪ ܡܛܠ ܕܚܘܒܐ ܡܘܠܝܗ ܗܘ ܕܢܡܘܣܐ
10 Love does no evil unto his neighbor, because, love is the fulfillment of The Law.

ܘܐܦ ܗܕܐ ܕܥܘ ܕܙܒܢܐ ܗܘ ܘܫܥܬܐ ܗܝ ܡܟܝܠ ܕܢܬܬܥܝܪ ܡܢ ܫܢܬܢ ܗܫܐ ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܐܬܩܪܒܘ ܠܢ ܚܝܝܢ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܕܟܕ ܗܝܡܢܢ
11 And also know this; that it is now the time, and the hour, that you should awaken from sleep, for, now He, Our Life, is nearer unto us; more so than from when we believed.

ܠܠܝܐ ܡܟܝܠ ܥܒܪ ܘܐܝܡܡܐ ܩܪܒ ܢܢܝܚ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܢܢ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܚܫܘܟܐ ܘܢܠܒܫ ܙܝܢܗ ܕܢܘܗܪܐ
12 The night, therefore, is passing, and the daytime approaches; cease therefore, from the works of darkness, and put on The Zayneh d’Nuhra {The Armor of Light}.

ܘܐܝܟ ܕܒܐܝܡܡܐ ܒܐܣܟܡܐ ܢܗܠܟ ܠܐ ܒܙܡܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܒܪܘܝܘܬܐ ܘܠܐ ܒܡܕܡܟܐ ܛܢܦܐ ܘܠܐ ܒܚܣܡܐ ܘܒܚܪܝܢܐ
13 And as of in the day, in that manner walk; not in partying, and not in drunkenness, and not in impure sex, and not in envy and in contention,

ܐܠܐ ܠܘܒܫܘܗܝ ܠܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܠܐ ܬܐܨܦܘܢ ܕܒܣܪܟܘܢ ܠܪܓܝܓܬܐ
14 but rather, put on Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}, and don’t worry about your flesh; for its desires.

Chapter 14
ܠܐܝܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܟܪܝܗ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܗܒܘ ܠܗ ܐܝܕܐ ܘܠܐ ܬܗܘܘܢ ܡܬܦܠܓܝܢ ܒܡܚܫܒܬܟܘܢ
1 Yet, to the one who is weak in Haymanutha {Faith}, give unto him a hand, and don’t be divided in your thoughts.

ܐܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ ܕܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܢܐܟܘܠ ܘܕܟܪܝܗ ܝܪܩܐ ܐܟܠ
2 For, there is the one who believes that every thing may be eaten, and the one who is weak, eats vegetables.

ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܐܟܠ ܠܗܘ ܡܢ ܕܠܐ ܐܟܠ ܠܐ ܢܫܘܛ ܘܗܘ ܡܢ ܕܠܐ ܐܟܠ ܠܗܘ ܡܢ ܕܐܟܠ ܠܐ ܢܕܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܩܪܒܗ
3 Yet, that one who eats, unto that one which doesn’t eat, don’t despise; and that one who doesn’t eat, unto that one who eats, don’t judge, for Alaha {God} has brought him near.

ܐܢܬ ܡܢ ܐܢܬ ܕܕܐܢ ܐܢܬ ܠܥܒܕܐ ܕܠܐ ܕܝܠܟ ܕܐܢ ܩܐܡ ܠܡܪܗ ܩܐܡ ܘܐܢ ܢܦܠ ܠܡܪܗ ܢܦܠ ܡܩܡ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܩܐܡ ܡܛܐ ܓܝܪ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܡܪܗ ܕܢܩܝܡܝܘܗܝ
4 You, who are you? You who are judging a slave who isn’t your own? If he should stand, unto Mareh {His Lord} he will stand, and if he should fall, unto Mareh {His Lord} he will fall. But, standing, he will stand, for, by the hands of Mareh {His Lord} he is able that he may stand.

ܐܝܬ ܕܕܐܢ ܝܘܡܐ ܡܢ ܝܘܡܐ ܘܐܝܬ ܕܕܐܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܕܝܢ ܒܡܕܥܐ ܕܢܦܫܗ ܢܫܬܪܪ
5 There is the one who judges a day from a day, and there is the one who judges all the days the same. But, let every nash {man} in the understanding of his soul be persuaded.

ܡܢ ܕܡܬܪܥܐ ܕܝܘܡܐ ܠܡܪܗ ܡܬܪܥܐ ܘܟܠ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܪܥܐ ܕܝܘܡܐ ܠܡܪܗ ܠܐ ܡܬܪܥܐ ܘܕܐܟܠ ܠܡܪܗ ܐܟܠ ܘܠܐܠܗܐ ܡܘܕܐ ܘܕܠܐ ܐܟܠ ܠܡܪܗ ܠܐ ܐܟܠ ܘܡܘܕܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ
6 He who is considerate of the day, for Mareh {His Lord} he is considerate, and all who are not considerate of the day, for Mareh {His Lord} he isn’t considerate; and he who eats, for Mareh {His Lord} he eats, and unto Alaha {God} gives thanks, and he who doesn’t eat, for Mareh {His Lord} he doesn’t eat, and gives thanks unto Alaha {God}.

ܠܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܢ ܕܠܢܦܫܗ ܚܝ ܘܠܝܬ ܐܢܫ ܕܠܢܦܫܗ ܡܐܬ
7 For, there is no nash {man} from you who lives for his own soul, and there is no nash {man} who dies for his own soul,

ܡܛܠ ܕܐܢ ܚܐܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܡܪܢ ܗܘ ܚܐܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܐܢ ܡܝܬܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܡܪܢ ܗܘ ܡܝܬܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܘܐܢ ܚܝܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܘܐܢ ܡܝܬܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܡܪܢ ܚܢܢ
8 because, if we are living, it is for Maran {Our Lord} we are living, and if we are dying, it is for Maran {Our Lord} we are dying, and if we are living, therefore, and if we are dying, we are of Maran {Our Lord}.

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܦ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܡܝܬ ܘܚܝܐ ܘܩܡ ܕܗܘ ܢܗܘܐ ܡܪܝܐ ܠܡܝܬܐ ܘܠܚܝܐ
9 Because of this, even Meshikha {The Anointed One} died, and lived, and rose, so that He would be MarYa {The Lord-YHWH} unto the dead, and unto the living.

ܐܢܬ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܐ ܕܐܢ ܐܢܬ ܠܐܚܘܟ ܐܘ ܐܦ ܐܢܬ ܠܡܢܐ ܫܐܛ ܐܢܬ ܠܐܚܘܟ ܟܠܢ ܓܝܪ ܥܬܝܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܡܩܡ ܩܕܡ ܒܝܡ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ
10 Yet you, why are you judgmental unto your Brother, or also, why are you spiteful unto your Brother? For, we all are destined to stand before The Judgment-Seat of Meshikha {The Anointed One},

ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܚܝ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܕܠܝ ܬܟܘܦ ܟܠ ܒܪܘܟ ܘܠܝ ܢܘܕܐ ܟܠ ܠܫܢ
11 as that which is written: ‘As I live, says MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, unto Me every knee will bow, and unto Me every tongue will confess.’

ܡܕܝܢ ܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܢ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܚܠܦ ܢܦܫܗ ܝܗܒ ܠܐܠܗܐ
12 Therefore, all mankind from us will give an answer for their soul, unto Alaha {God}.

ܠܐ ܡܟܝܠ ܢܕܘܢ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ ܐܠܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܘܢܘ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܕܬܘܩܠܬܐ ܠܐܚܘܟ ܠܐ ܬܣܝܡ
13 Therefore, do not judge one unto another, but rather, judge this exceedingly: That a stumbling-block isn’t placed for your Brother!

ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܘܡܦܣ ܐܢܐ ܒܡܪܝܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܡܣܝܒ ܡܢ ܠܘܬܗ ܠܝܬ ܐܠܐ ܠܐܝܢܐ ܕܪܢܐ ܥܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܛܡܐ ܠܗܘ ܗܘ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܛܡܐ
14 For, I know, and I am persuaded by MarYa Eshu {The Lord-YHWH Y’shu}, that there isn’t a thing defiled in itself, but rather, unto the one who considers a thing, that it is unclean; to that one alone, it is unclean.

ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܛܠ ܡܐܟܘܠܬܐ ܡܥܝܩ ܐܢܬ ܠܐܚܘܟ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܒܚܘܒܐ ܡܗܠܟ ܐܢܬ ܠܐ ܬܘܒܕ ܒܡܐܟܘܠܬܟ ܠܗܘ ܕܡܛܠܬܗ ܡܝܬ ܡܫܝܚܐ
15 But, if you are distressing unto your Brother because of food, it isn’t in Love that you are walking. Don’t ruin him with your food, because, for that one Meshikha {The Anointed One} has died,

ܘܠܐ ܬܬܓܕܦ ܛܒܬܢ
16 and don’t let our good be reviled.

ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܐܟܠܐ ܘܡܫܬܝܐ ܐܠܐ ܟܐܢܘܬܐ ܘܫܠܡܐ ܘܚܕܘܬܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
17 For, The Malkutheh d’Alaha {The Kingdom of God} isn’t food and drink, but, Kenutha {Righteousness}, and Shlama {Peace}, and Khadutha {Joy}, in The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}.

ܡܢ ܕܒܗܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܡܫܡܫ ܠܡܫܝܚܐ ܫܦܪ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܩܕܡ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܒܩܐ
18 For, whoever that in these things Minister unto Meshikha {The Anointed One} are pleasing unto Alaha {God}, and before the sons of men are approved.

ܗܫܐ ܒܬܪ ܫܠܡܐ ܢܪܗܛ ܘܒܬܪ ܒܢܝܢܐ ܚܕ ܕܚܕ
19 Now, strive after Shlama {Peace}, and after the edification {or, the building up} of one another,

ܘܠܐ ܡܛܠ ܡܐܟܘܠܬܐ ܢܫܪܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܓܝܪ ܕܟܐ ܗܘ ܐܠܐ ܒܝܫ ܗܘ ܠܒܪܢܫܐ ܕܒܬܘܩܠܬܐ ܐܟܠ
20 and don’t destroy the work of Alaha {God} because of food, for, every thing is clean, but, it is evil for a son of man who eats with an offense.

ܫܦܝܪ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܢܐܟܘܠ ܒܣܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܢܫܬܐ ܚܡܪܐ ܘܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܡܬܬܩܠ ܒܗ ܐܚܘܢ
21 It is good not to eat flesh, and not to drink wine, and something in which stumbles our Brother.

ܐܢܬ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܟ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܒܢܦܫܟ ܐܚܘܕܝܗ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܛܘܒܘܗܝ ܠܡܢ ܕܠܐ ܕܢ ܢܦܫܗ ܒܡܕܡ ܕܦܪܫ
22 You, in whom is Haymanutha {Faith}, maintain it in your own soul before Alaha {God}. Blessedness is unto whomever who doesn’t judge his soul in the thing which he has set aside,

ܐܝܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܬܦܠܓ ܘܐܟܠ ܐܬܚܝܒ ܠܗ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܘ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܗܘ
23 for, the one who doubts, and eats, incurs guilt unto himself, because, for him it is not in Haymanutha {Faith}. For, every thing which is not from Haymanutha {Faith}, is sin.

Chapter 15
ܚܝܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܚܢܢ ܚܝܠܬܢܐ ܕܟܘܪܗܢܐ ܕܡܚܝܠܐ ܢܫܩܘܠ ܘܠܐ ܠܢܦܫܢ ܢܫܦܪ
1 Now then, we are obligated; we who are strong; to bear up the weaknesses of the feeble, and not be pleasing unto our souls,

ܐܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܢ ܠܩܪܝܒܗ ܢܫܦܪ ܒܛܒܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܠܒܢܝܢܐ
2 but, a man from us should be pleasing unto his companion in the good things, according to that which builds up {or, edifies}.

ܡܛܠ ܕܐܦ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܢܦܫܗ ܫܦܪ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܚܣܕܐ ܕܡܚܣܕܢܝܟ ܢܦܠ ܥܠܝ
3 Because, even Meshikha {The Anointed One} hasn’t pleased His Soul, but rather, as that which is written, that “The shame of your revilers fell upon me.”

ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܓܝܪ ܕܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܐܬܟܬܒ ܠܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܗܘ ܕܝܠܢ ܐܬܟܬܒ ܕܒܡܣܝܒܪܢܘܬܐ ܘܒܒܘܝܐܐ ܕܟܬܒܐ ܣܒܪܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܢ
4 For, every thing which was written from before, is written for our own instruction, so that with patience, and in the encouragement of The Scriptures, there may be Hope for us.

ܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܣܝܒܪܢܘܬܐ ܘܕܒܘܝܐܐ ܢܬܠ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܫܘܝܘܬܐ ܬܬܚܫܒܘܢ ܚܕ ܥܠ ܚܕ ܒܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
5 Yet, The Alaha {God} of Patience and of Encouragement, will grant unto you that you will think similarly, one concerning the other, in Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One},

ܕܒܚܕ ܪܥܝܢ ܘܒܚܕ ܦܘܡ ܬܫܒܚܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܐܒܘܗܝ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
6 so that with one mind, and with one mouth, we will give praises unto Alaha Abuhe d’Maran Eshu Meshikha {God, The Father of Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}.

ܡܛܠ ܗܕܐ ܗܘܘ ܡܩܪܒܝܢ ܘܛܥܢܝܢ ܠܚܕܕܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܦ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܩܪܒܟܘܢ ܠܬܫܒܘܚܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
7 Because of this, be drawing near, and carry one another, as also Meshikha {The Anointed One} has drawn near unto you, unto The Theshbukhtheh d’Alaha {The Glory of God}.

ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܫܡܫ ܓܙܘܪܬܐ ܚܠܦ ܫܪܪܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܢܫܪ ܡܘܠܟܢܐ ܕܐܒܗܬܐ
8 Yet, I say, that Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One} has Ministered unto The Circumcision on behalf of The Shrareh d’Alaha {The Truth of God}, in such a way that The Promises of the fathers would be established,

ܘܥܡܡܐ ܢܫܒܚܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܚܠܦ ܪܚܡܐ ܕܗܘܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܐܘܕܐ ܠܟ ܒܥܡܡܐ ܘܠܫܡܟ ܐܙܡܪ
9 and the Amme {the Gentiles} should give Praises unto Alaha {God} in exchange for The Mercies which have been upon them, as that which is written, that “I will give thanks unto You among the Amme {the Gentiles}, and unto Your Name, I will sing.”

ܘܬܘܒ ܐܡܪ ܐܬܒܣܡܘ ܥܡܡܐ ܥܡ ܥܡܗ
10 And again, it says: “Rejoice, Amme {Gentiles}, with Ameh {His People}!”

ܘܬܘܒ ܐܡܪ ܫܒܚܘ ܠܡܪܝܐ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܫܒܚܝܗܝ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܐܡܘܬܐ
11 And again, it says: “Give Praises unto MarYa {The Lord-YHWH}, all you Amme {Gentiles}; give Him Praises all you Emwatha {Nations}.”

ܘܬܘܒ ܐܫܥܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܥܩܪܐ ܠܐܝܫܝ ܘܡܢ ܕܢܩܘܡ ܢܗܘܐ ܪܫܐ ܠܥܡܡܐ ܘܥܠܘܗܝ ܢܣܒܪܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ
12 And again, IshaYa {Isaiah} says, that “There will be a Root for Eshay {Jesse}, and He who will arise will be The Head for the Amme {the Gentiles}, and upon Him, the Amme {the Gentiles} will be hoping.”

ܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܣܒܪܐ ܢܡܠܝܟܘܢ ܟܠܗ ܚܕܘܬܐ ܘܫܠܡܐ ܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܬܬܝܬܪܘܢ ܒܣܒܪܗ ܒܚܝܠܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
13 Thereupon, The Alaha {God} of Hope will fill you with all Khadutha {Joy} and Shlama {Peace}, in Haymanutha {Faith}, so that you will abound in Sabareh {His Hope}, through The Khayla d’Rukha d’Qudsha {The Power of The Spirit of Holiness}.

ܡܦܣ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܐܚܝ ܕܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܗܘ ܛܒܬܐ ܘܡܫܡܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܟܠܗ ܝܕܥܬܐ ܘܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܦ ܠܐܚܪܢܐ ܠܡܪܬܝܘ
14 Yet, I am persuaded, even I, concerning you, my Brothers, that you are also filled with goodness, and you are filled with all knowledge, and you are also able to teach others.

ܩܠܝܠ ܕܝܢ ܡܪܚܐܝܬ ܟܬܒܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܚܝ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܥܗܕܟܘܢ ܒܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܕܐܬܝܗܒܬ ܠܝ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ
15 But, I have written a little boldly unto you, my Brothers, in such a way that you would be reminded, by The Taybutha {The Grace} which was given unto me, from Alaha {God},

ܕܐܗܘܐ ܡܫܡܫܢܐ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܥܡܡܐ ܘܐܦܠܘܚ ܠܐܘܢܓܠܝܘܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܩܘܪܒܢܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ ܡܩܒܠ ܘܡܩܕܫ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
16 so that you might be Ministering for Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One} among the Amme {the Gentiles}, and work for The Evangeliun d’Alaha {The Good Message of God}, that you might be a Qurbana d’Amme {an Offering of the Gentiles}, and made acceptable and sanctified by The Rukha d’Qudsha {The Spirit of Holiness}.

ܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܗܟܝܠ ܫܘܒܗܪܐ ܒܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ
17 There is therefore for me boasting in Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}, towards Alaha {God},

ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܡܪܚ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܡܕܡ ܕܠܐ ܣܥܪ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܠܡܫܡܥܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܘܒܥܒܕܐ
18 for, I dare not speak a thing which Meshikha {The Anointed One} didn’t commit into my hands; in word and in works, for the obedience of the Amme {the Peoples/Nations/Gentiles},

ܒܚܝܠܐ ܕܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܕܬܕܡܪܬܐ ܘܒܚܝܠܐ ܕܪܘܚܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܐܬܟܪܟ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܐܠܘܪܝܩܘܢ ܘܐܡܠܐ ܣܒܪܬܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ
19 in the power of signs, and of miracles, and in The Khayla d’Rukheh d’Alaha {The Power of The Spirit of God}, in such a way, that from Urishlem {Jerusalem} around unto Eluriqun {Illyricum}, and to complete The Sabartheh d’Meshikha {The Hopeful Message of The Anointed One},

ܟܕ ܡܬܚܦܛ ܐܢܐ ܐܣܒܪ ܠܐ ܟܪ ܕܐܬܩܪܝ ܫܡܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܠܐ ܐܒܢܐ ܥܠ ܫܬܐܣܬܐ ܢܘܟܪܝܬܐ
20 while I was diligent to Proclaim where The Name of Meshikha {The Anointed One} hadn’t been Proclaimed, so that I wouldn’t build upon an unusual {or, upon another man’s} foundation,

ܐܠܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܐܬܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܢܚܙܘܢܗ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܫܡܥܘ ܢܬܛܦܝܣܘܢ
21 but, as that which is written, that “Unto those concerning whom haven’t been told, will see, and those who haven’t heard, will be persuaded.”

ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܬܟܣܬ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܣܓܝܐܢ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ
22 Because of this, I have been restrained many times, that I might come unto you.

ܗܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܕܘܟܐ ܠܝܬ ܠܝ ܒܗܠܝܢ ܐܬܪܘܬܐ ܘܣܘܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܡܢ ܩܕܡ ܫܢܝܐ ܣܓܝܐܬܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ
23 But, now, because of having no place for me in these regions, and I have been desirous, from many previous years, that I might come unto you,

ܡܐ ܕܐܙܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܐܣܦܢܝܐ ܡܣܒܪ ܐܢܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܘܐܚܙܝܟܘܢ ܘܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܠܘܘܢܢܝ ܠܬܡܢ ܡܐ ܕܩܠܝܠ ܡܢ ܣܓܝ ܐܬܒܣܡܬ ܒܚܙܬܟܘܢ
24 when it is that I depart unto Ispaniya {Spain}, I hope that I will come and see you, and that you might accompany me unto there, when, after a short while, from my great joy at seeing you.

ܗܫܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܙܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܕܐܫܡܫ ܠܩܕܝܫܐ
25 Yet, now, I go unto Urishlem {Jerusalem}, so that I might Minister unto The Qadishe {The Holy Ones}.

ܨܒܘ ܓܝܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܒܡܩܕܘܢܝܐ ܘܒܐܟܐܝܐ ܕܫܘܬܦܘܬܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܡ ܡܣܟܢܐ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ
26 For, they have desired; the ones who are in Maqedaunia {Macedonia} and in Akaia, that a sharing might be made for them with the poor Qadishe {Holy Ones} who are in Urishlem {Jerusalem}.

ܨܒܘ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܦ ܚܝܒܝܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢ ܓܝܪ ܒܕܪܘܚ ܐܫܬܘܬܦܘ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܚܝܒܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܐܦ ܒܕܒܣܪ ܢܫܡܫܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ
27 They have desired this, because, they also were indebted unto them, for if, in The Rukh {The Spirit}, the Amme {the Gentiles} are partakers with them, they are indebted, that they also might Minister unto them who are in the flesh.

ܗܕܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܡܐ ܕܓܡܪܬ ܘܚܬܡܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܕܫܐ ܗܢܐ ܥܒܪ ܐܢܐ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܠܐܣܦܢܝܐ
28 Now then, when I have fulfilled, and have sealed this fruit for them; I will pass over towards you, unto Ispaniya {Spain}.

ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܡܬܝ ܕܐܬܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܒܡܘܠܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܒܘܪܟܬܐ ܕܐܘܢܓܠܝܘܢ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܬܐ ܐܢܐ
29 for, I know that when I come unto you, I am coming in the fullness of the blessing of The Evangeliun d’Meshikha {The Good Message of The Anointed One}.

ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܐܚܝ ܒܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܒܚܘܒܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܕܬܥܡܠܘܢ ܥܡܝ ܒܨܠܘܬܐ ܕܚܠܦܝ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ
30 Now then, I ask from you, my Brothers, in Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}, and in The Khuba d’Rukha {The Love of The Spirit}, that you labor with me, in tslutha {prayer}, on my account, unto Alaha {God},

ܕܐܬܦܨܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܠܐ ܡܬܛܦܝܣܝܢ ܕܒܝܗܘܕ ܘܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܡܘܒܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܬܬܩܒܠ ܫܦܝܪ
31 so that I am delivered from those who are not reconciled, who are in Yehud {Judea}, and the relief which I bring unto The Qadishe {The Holy Ones} who are in Urishlem {Jerusalem}, might be well received,

ܘܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܒܚܕܘܬܐ ܒܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܬܬܢܝܚ ܥܡܟܘܢ
32 and might come unto you in Khadutha {Joy}, in The Will of Alaha {God}, and might rest with you.

ܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܫܠܡܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܥܡ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ
33 Now, may The Alaha d’Shlama {The God of Peace} be with you all. Amiyn {Amen}.

Chapter 16
ܡܓܥܠ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܦܘܒܐ ܚܬܢ ܕܐܝܬܝܗ ܡܫܡܫܢܝܬܐ ܕܥܕܬܐ ܕܩܢܟܪܐܘܣ
1 Thereupon, I entrust unto you, Phubi {Phoebe}, a Sister who is a Mashamashanitha d’Edtha {a Deaconess/a female Minister of The Assembly} of Qenkreuas {Cenchrea},

ܕܬܩܒܠܘܢܗ ܒܡܪܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܙܕܩ ܠܩܕܝܫܐ ܘܒܟܠ ܨܒܘ ܕܒܥܝܐ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܬܩܘܡܘܢ ܠܗ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܦ ܗܝ ܩܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܘܬ ܠܣܓܝܐܐ ܐܦ ܠܝ
2 that you receive her in Maran {Our Lord}, as is proper for The Qadishe {The Holy Ones}, and in all the matters which she requests from you, establish for her, because, she also has been a supporter for many, even for me.

ܫܐܠܘ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܕܦܪܝܣܩܠܐ ܘܕܐܩܠܘܣ ܦܠܚܐ ܕܥܡܝ ܒܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
3 Pray with regard to the well-being of Presqela {Priscilla} and of Aqelas {Aquila}, Ministers who are with me, in Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One},

ܕܗܢܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܚܠܦ ܢܦܫܝ ܨܘܪܝܗܘܢ ܝܗܒܘ ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܐ ܒܠܚܘܕܝ ܡܘܕܐ ܐܢܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܐܦ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܥܕܬܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ
4 who they themselves, for my soul, gave their necks, and I am not only giving thanks for them, but also, all The Edatha d’Amme {The Assemblies of the Gentiles}.

5 And give Peace unto The Edtha {The Assembly} which is in their home. And Pray with regard to the well-being of Ephenetus, my beloved, who is the firstfruits of Akaia in Meshikha {The Anointed One}.

ܫܐܠܘ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܣܓܝ ܠܐܝܬ ܒܟܘܢ
6 Pray with regard to the well-being of Mariya {Maria}, who has greatly labored among you.

7 Pray with regard to the well-being of Andrunequs, and of Yuneya, my Kinsman, who were captives with me, and they are known by The Shlikhe {The Sent Ones}, and were in Meshikha {The Anointed One} before me.

10 Pray with regard to the well-being of Aphele, chosen in Maran {Our Lord}. Pray with regard to the well-being of the sons of the household of Arestabulus.

ܫܐܠܘ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܕܗܪܘܕܝܘܢ ܐܚܝܢܝ ܫܐܠܘ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܕܒܢܝ ܒܝܬܗ ܕܢܪܩܣܘܣ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܒܡܪܢ
11 Pray with regard to the well-being of Heraudiun, my Kinsman. Pray with regard to the well-being of the sons of the household of Narqesus, those who are in Maran {Our Lord}.

ܫܐܠܘ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܕܛܪܘܦܢܐ ܘܕܛܪܘܦܣܐ ܕܠܐܝܝܢ ܒܡܪܢ ܫܐܠܘ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܕܦܪܣܣ ܚܒܝܒܬܝ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܣܓܝ ܠܐܝܬ ܒܡܪܢ
12 Pray with regard to the well-being of Truphena and of Truphasa, who have labored in Maran {Our Lord}. Pray with regard to the well-being of Persis, my beloved, who has labored greatly in Maran {Our Lord}.

ܫܐܠܘ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܕܪܘܦܘܣ ܓܒܝܐ ܒܡܪܢ ܘܕܐܡܗ ܕܝܠܗ ܘܕܝܠܝ
13 Pray with regard to the well-being of Ruphus, chosen in Maran {Our Lord}, and of his mother, and mine.

ܫܐܠܘ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܕܐܣܘܢܩܪܛܘܣ ܘܕܦܠܓܘܢ ܘܕܗܪܡܐ ܘܕܦܛܪܒܐ ܘܕܗܪܡܐ ܘܕܐܚܐ ܕܥܡܗܘܢ
14 Pray with regard to the well-being of Asunqritus, and of Phlegun, and of Herma, and of Phatraba, and of Herme, and of The Brothers who are with them.

ܫܐܠܘ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܕܦܝܠܠܓܘܣ ܘܕܝܘܠܝܐ ܘܕܢܐܪܘܣ ܘܕܚܬܗ ܘܕܐܠܘܡܦܐ ܘܕܟܠܗܘܢ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܥܡܗܘܢ

ܫܐܠܘ ܒܫܠܡܐ ܚܕ ܕܚܕ ܒܢܘܫܩܬܐ ܩܕܝܫܬܐ ܫܐܠܢ ܒܫܠܡܟܘܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܥܕܬܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ
16 Greet one another in Peace with a Holy kiss. All The Edatheh d’Meshikha {The Assemblies of The Anointed One} pray with regard to your well-being.

ܒܥܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܐܚܝ ܕܬܙܕܗܪܘܢ ܡܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܦܠܓܘܬܐ ܘܡܟܫܘܠܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܠܦܬܘܢ ܕܬܬܪܚܩܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ
17 Yet, I beg from you, my Brothers, that you beware from those who make divisions and stumbling-blocks, outside from The Doctrine which you have been taught; that you are to depart from them.

ܐܝܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܫܡܫܝܢ ܠܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܟܪܣܗܘܢ ܘܒܡܠܐ ܒܣܝܡܬܐ ܘܒܒܘܪܟܬܐ ܡܛܥܝܢ ܠܒܘܬܐ ܕܦܫܝܛܐ
18 For, those who are thus, are not ministering for Maran Eshu Meshikha {Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}, but rather, for their own stomachs, and through pleasing words, and with blessings, they lead astray the hearts of the simple.

ܡܫܬܡܥܢܘܬܟܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܠܟܠ ܒܪܐܢܫ ܐܬܝܕܥܬ ܚܕܐ ܐܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܒܟܘܢ ܘܨܒܐ ܐܢܐ ܕܬܗܘܘܢ ܚܟܝܡܝܢ ܠܛܒܬܐ ܘܬܡܝܡܝܢ ܠܒܝܫܬܐ
19 Yet, your own obedience is known unto every son of man. I rejoice, therefore, in you, and I desire that you should be wise unto the good things, and innocent unto the evil things.

ܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܫܠܡܐ ܢܫܚܩܝܘܗܝ ܒܥܓܠ ܠܣܛܢܐ ܬܚܝܬ ܪܓܠܝܟܘܢ ܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܬܗܘܐ ܥܡܟܘܢ
20 But, The Alaha d’Shlama {The God of Peace} will quickly grind satana underneath your feet. The Taybutheh d’Maran Eshu Meshikha {The Grace of Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One} will be with you.

ܫܐܠܝܢ ܒܫܠܡܟܘܢ ܛܝܡܬܐܘܣ ܦܠܚܐ ܕܥܡܝ ܘܠܘܩܝܘܣ ܘܐܝܣܘܢ ܘܣܘܣܝܦܛܪܘܣ ܐܚܝܢܝ
21 Timatheus {Timothy}, a Minister who is with me, and Luqius {Lucius}, and Easun {Jason}, and Sausiphatrus, my Kinsman, prays with regard to your well-being.

ܫܐܠ ܐܢܐ ܒܫܠܡܟܘܢ ܐܢܐ ܛܪܛܝܘܣ ܕܟܬܒܬ ܐܓܪܬܐ ܒܡܪܢ
22 I pray with regard to your well-being, I, Terteus, who wrote this letter in Maran {Our Lord}.

ܫܐܠ ܒܫܠܡܟܘܢ ܓܐܝܘܣ ܡܩܒܠܢܝ ܘܕܟܠܗ ܥܕܬܐ ܫܐܠ ܒܫܠܡܟܘܢ ܐܪܣܛܘܣ ܪܒܝܬܐ ܕܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܩܘܐܪܛܘܣ ܐܚܐ
23 Gaius, my host, and all The Edtha {The Assembly}, prays with regard to your well-being. Erastus, the steward of the city, and also Quartus, a Brother, prays with regard to your well-being.

ܠܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܢ ܗܘ ܕܡܫܟܚ ܕܢܫܪܪܟܘܢ ܒܐܘܢܓܠܝܘܢ ܕܝܠܝ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܟܪܙ ܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܓܠܝܢܐ ܕܐܪܙܐ ܕܡܢ ܙܒܢܝ ܥܠܡܐ ܡܟܣܝ ܗܘܐ
24 Now then; unto Alaha {God}, that One who is able that He will establish you through my own Evangeliun {Good Message}, that one which was Proclaimed concerning Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}, in The Revelation of The Raza {The Mystery} which was hidden from the times of eternity,

ܐܬܓܠܝ ܕܝܢ ܒܙܒܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܝܕ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܘܒܦܘܩܕܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ ܐܬܝܕܥ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܠܡܫܡܥܐ ܕܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ
25 but, was revealed in this time, by The Kathabe d’Nabiye {The Scriptures of The Prophets}, and by The Command of Alaha {God}, which is eternal; which has been made known unto all the Amme {the Nations/the Gentiles}, for the obedience of The Haymanutha {The Faith};

ܕܗܘܝܘ ܚܟܝܡܐ ܒܠܚܘܕܘܗܝ ܫܘܒܚܐ ܒܝܕ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܠܥܠܡ ܥܠܡܝܢ ܐܡܝܢ
26 that is to say, the only Wise One, be Glory, through Eshu Meshikha {Y’shu, The Anointed One}, for everlasting eternities. Amiyn {Amen}.

ܛܝܒܘܬܗ ܕܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܥܡ ܟܠܟܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ
27 The Taybutheh d’Maran Eshu Meshikha {The Grace of Our Lord Y’shu, The Anointed One}, be with you all. Amiyn {Amen}.
