Kingdom of Heaven for Arabs

Issa Ibn Allah


John 1: 1-18
1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning.

3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.

6 There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. 9The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.

10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

15 John testifies concerning him. He cries out, saying, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ ” 16 From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only,who is at the Father’s side, has made him known.
ﻳﻮﺣﻨﺎ 1

1 فِي الْبَدْءِ كَانَ الْكَلِمَةُ، وَالْكَلِمَةُ كَانَ عِنْدَ اللهِ. وَكَانَ الْكَلِمَةُ هُوَ اللهُ .

2 هُوَ كَانَ فِي الْبَدْءِ عِنْدَ اللهِ.

3 بِهِ تَكَوَّنَ كُلُّ شَيْءٍ، وَبِغَيْرِهِ لَمْ يَتَكَوَّنْ أَيُّ شَيْءٍ مِمَّا تَكَوَّنَ.

4 فِيهِ كَانَتِ الْحَيَاةُ. وَالْحَيَاةُ هَذِهِ كَانَتِ نُورَ النَّاسِ.

5 وَالنُّورُ يُضِيءُ فِي الظَّلاَمِ، وَالظَّلاَمُ لَمْ يُدْرِكْ النُّورَ.

6 ظَهَرَ إِنْسَانٌ أَرْسَلَهُ اللهُ ، اسْمُهُ يُوحَنَّا،

7 جَاءَ يَشْهَدُ لِلنُّورِ، مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنْ يُؤْمِنَ الْجَمِيعُ بِوَاسِطَتِهِ.

8 لَمْ يَكُنْ هُوَ النُّورَ، بَلْ كَانَ شَاهِداً لِلنُّورِ،

9 فَالنُّورُ الْحَقُّ الَّذِي يُنِيرُ كُلَّ إِنْسَانٍ كَانَ آتِياً إِلَى الْعَالَمِ.

10 كَانَ فِي الْعَالَمِ، وَبِهِ تَكَوَّنَ الْعَالَمُ، وَلَمْ يَعْرِفْهُ الْعَالَمُ.

11 وَقَدْ جَاءَ إِلَى مَنْ كَانُوا خَاصَّتَهُ، وَلَكِنَّ هَؤُلاَءِ لَمْ يَقْبَلُوهُ.

12 أَمَّا الَّذِينَ قَبِلُوهُ، أَيِ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِاسْمِهِ، فَقَدْ مَنَحَهُمُ الْحَقَّ فِي أَنْ يَصِيرُوا أَوْلاَدَ اللهِ،

13 وَهُمُ الَّذِينَ وُلِدُوا لَيْسَ مِنْ دَمٍ، وَلاَ مِنْ رَغْبَةِ جَسَدٍ، وَلاَ مِنْ رَغْبَةِ بَشَرٍ، بَلْ مِنَ اللهِ.

14 وَالْكَلِمَةُ صَارَ بَشَراً، وَخَيَّمَ بَيْنَنَا، وَنَحْنُ رَأَيْنَا مَجْدَهُ، مَجْدَ ابْنٍ وَحِيدٍ عِنْدَ الآبِ، وَهُوَ مُمْتَلِىءٌ بِالنِّعْمَةِ وَالْحَقِّ.

15 شَهِدَ لَهُ يُوحَنَّا فَهَتَفَ قَائِلاً: «هَذَا هُوَ الَّذِي قُلْتُ عَنْهُ: إِنَّ الآتِيَ بَعْدِي مُتَقَدِّمٌ عَلَيَّ، لأَنَّهُ كَانَ قَبْلَ أَنْ أُوْجَدَ».

16 فَمِنِ امْتِلاَئِهِ أَخَذْنَا جَمِيعُنَا وَنِلْنَا نِعْمَةً عَلَى نِعْمَةٍ،

17 لأَنَّ الشَّرِيعَةَ أُعْطِيَتْ عَلَى يَدِ مُوسَى، أَمَّا النِّعْمَةُ وَالْحَقُّ فَقَدْ تَوَاجَدَا بِيَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ.

18 مَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ رَأَى اللهَ قَطُّ. وَلَكِنَّ الابْنَ الْوَحِيدَ، الَّذِي فِي حِضْنِ الآبِ، هُوَ الَّذِي كَشَفَ عَنْهُ

John 1:18

“No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only,who is at the Father’s side, has made him known.”
18 مَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ رَأَى اللهَ قَطُّ. وَلَكِنَّ الابْنَ الْوَحِيدَ، الَّذِي فِي حِضْنِ الآبِ، هُوَ الَّذِي كَشَفَ عَنْهُ.

Romans 1: 1-4
1 “Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God— 2 the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures 3 regarding his Son, who as to his human nature was a descendant of David, 4 and who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.”
1 مِنْ بُولُسَ عَبْدِ يَسُوعَ المَسِيحِ، الرَّسُولِ الْمَدْعُوِّ وَالْمُفْرَزِ لإِنْجِيلِ اللهِ،

2 هَذَا الإِنْجِيلِ الَّذِي وَعَدَ اللهُ بِهِ مِنْ قَبْلُ عَلَى أَلْسِنَةِ أَنْبِيَائِهِ فِي الْكُتُبِ الْمُقَدَّسَةِ،

3 وَهُوَ يَخْتَصُّ بِابْنِهِ الَّذِي جَاءَ مِنْ نَسْلِ دَاوُدَ مِنَ النَّاحِيَةِ الْبَشَرِيَّةِ؛

4 وَمِنْ نَاحِيَةِ رُوحِ الْقَدَاسَةِ، تَبَيَّنَ بِقُوَّةٍ أَنَّهُ ابْنُ اللهِ بِالْقِيَامَةِ مِنْ بَيْنِ الأَمْوَاتِ. إِنَّهُ يَسُوعُ الْمَسِيحُ رَبُّنَا
John 1:4-5

“In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
4 فِيهِ كَانَتِ الْحَيَاةُ. وَالْحَيَاةُ هَذِهِ كَانَتِ نُورَ النَّاسِ.

5 وَالنُّورُ يُضِيءُ فِي الظَّلاَمِ، وَالظَّلاَمُ لَمْ يُدْرِكْ النُّورَ

Mathew 7: 24-27

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
24 فَأَيُّ مَنْ يَسْمَعُ أَقْوَالِي هَذِهِ وَيَعْمَلُ بِهَا، أُشَبِّهُهُ بِرَجُلٍ حَكِيمٍ بَنَى بَيْتَهُ عَلَى الصَّخْرِ،

25 فَنَزَلَتِ الأَمْطَارُ، وَجَرَتِ السُّيُولُ، وَهَبَّتِ الْعَوَاصِفُ، فَضَرَبَتْ ذَلِكَ الْبَيْتَ، فَلَمْ يَسْقُطْ لأَنَّهُ مُؤَسَّسٌ عَلَى الصَّخْرِ.

26 وَأَيُّ مَنْ يَسْمَعُ أَقْوَالِي هَذِهِ وَلاَ يَعْمَلُ بِهَا، يُشَبَّهُ بِرَجُلٍ غَبِيٍّ بَنَى بَيْتَهُ عَلَى الرَّمْلِ،

27 فَنَزَلَتْ الأَمْطَارُ، وَجَرَتْ السُّيُولُ، وَهَبَّتِ الْعَوَاصِفُ، فَضَرَبَتْ ذَلِكَ الْبَيْتَ، فَسَقَطَ، وَكَانَ سُقُوطُهُ عَظِيماً

2 Corinthians 5:20-21

20 “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”
20 فَنَحْنُ إِذَنْ سُفَرَاءُ الْمَسِيحِ، وَكَأَنَّ اللهَ يَعِظُ بِنَا نَتَوَسَّلُ بِالنِّيَابَةِ عَنِ الْمَسِيحِ مُنَادِينَ: «تَصَالَحُوا مَعَ اللهِ!»

21 فَإِنَّ الَّذِي لَمْ يَعْرِفْ خَطِيئَةً، جَعَلَهُ اللهُ خَطِيئَةً لأَجْلِنَا، لِنَصِيرَ نَحْنُ بِرَّ اللهِ فِيهِ

Hebrews 1:1-4

1 “In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. 3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.”

1 إِنَّ اللهَ ، فِي الأَزْمِنَةِ الْمَاضِيَةِ، كَلَّمَ آبَاءَنَا بِلِسَانِ الأَنْبِيَاءِ الَّذِينَ نَقَلُوا إِعْلاَنَاتٍ جُزْئِيَّةً بِطُرُقٍ عَدِيدَةٍ وَمُتَنَوِّعَةٍ.

2 أَمَّا الآنَ، فِي هَذَا الزَّمَنِ الأَخِيرِ، فَقَدْ كَلَّمَنَا بِالابْنِ، الَّذِي جَعَلَهُ وَارِثاً لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ، وَبِهِ قَدْ خَلَقَ الْكَوْنَ كُلَّهُ!

3 إِنَّهُ ضِيَاءُ مَجْدِ اللهِ وَصُورَةُ جَوْهَرِهِ. حَافِظٌ كُلَّ مَا فِي الْكَوْنِ بِكَلِمَتِهِ الْقَدِيرَةِ. وَهُوَ الَّذِي بَعْدَمَا طَهَّرَنَا بِنَفْسِهِ مِنْ خَطَايَانَا،

4 جَلَسَ فِي الأَعَالِي عَنْ يَمِينِ اللهِ الْعَظِيمِ. وَهَكَذَا، أَخَذَ مَكَاناً أَعْظَمَ مِنَ الْمَلاَئِكَةِ، بِمَا أَنَّ الاسْمَ الَّذِي وَرِثَهُ مُتَفَوِّقٌ جِدّاً عَلَى أَسْمَاءِ الْمَلاَئِكَةِ جَمِيعاً!

A thought could be expressed without any words. The Word is the thought which becomes explicit and evident. Actually, words are meditated thoughts.Words are something that is shared between people, though they are actually thoughts. Due to them we are able to understand a person and his/her ideas. Words and thoughts are one and the same. God expresses and shows Himself through His Word. The Word is Jesus Christ. He shows us God. God and the Son are ONE. Jesus is the mediator between us and God. By accepting Him we accept God. If we know Him, we know God. In exactly the same way as the word and thought are one, God and Jesus Christ are ONE. That was the reason why Jesus said: I and the Father are ONE. The word is the child of thought. In the same way Jesus is the Son of the Father. But the thought is greater than the word because everything that is expressed (expression) is limited (we often have to find the right word to correctly express
our thought). That is why the unexpressed God (thought) is greater than the expressed God (word). God limited Himself when He came into the world in Jesus Christ BY APPEARING IN A HUMAN BODY. He limited Himself when He became a human being. But why did He become a human being? – to show Himself to people. To present Himself and exemplify Himself to people.Also He came to say to us that He is LOVE, and that through Him we can build a bridge with God. We can return to God so that our sins that stand between us and Him can be deleted. We can receive eternal life as a Gift from God; something that we will never be able to deserve. We cannot achieve eternal life on our own without Him.

Look what Jesus says:

Matthew 16:13-17

13 “When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”
14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”
16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.

13 وَلَمَّا وَصَلَ يَسُوعُ إِلَى نَوَاحِي قَيْصَرِيَّةِ فِيلِبُّسَ، سَأَلَ تَلاَمِيذَهُ: «مَنْ يَقُولُ النَّاسُ إِنِّي أَنَا، ابْنَ الإِنْسَانِ؟»

14 فَأَجَابُوهُ: «يَقُولُ بَعْضُهُمْ إِنَّكَ يُوحَنَّا الْمَعْمَدَانُ، وَغَيْرُهُمْ إِنَّكَ النَّبِيُّ إِيلِيَّا، وآخَرُونَ إِنَّكَ إِرْمِيَا، أَوْ وَاحِدٌ مِنَ الأَنْبِيَاءِ».

15 فَسَأَلَهُمْ: «وَأَنْتُمْ، مَنْ تَقُولُونَ إِنِّي أَنَا؟»

16 فَأَجَابَ سِمْعَانُ بُطْرُسُ قَائِلاً: «أَنْتَ هُوَ الْمَسِيحُ ابْنُ اللهِ الْحَيِّ!»

17 فَقَالَ لَهُ يَسُوعُ: «طُوبَى لَكَ يَاسِمْعَانَ بْنَ يُونَا. فَمَا أَعْلَنَ لَكَ هَذَا لَحْمٌ وَدَمٌ، بَلْ أَبِي الَّذِي فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ

Here in this Sermon on the Mountain we can see who He is, Jesus Christ:
Matthew 5, 6, 7

5:
1 “Now when he saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, 2 and he began to teach them saying:
3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called sons of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11″Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.
14 “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.
21 “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ 22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, Raca, is answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.
23 “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift.
25 “Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still with him on the way, or he may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. 26 I tell you the truth, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.
27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Do not commit adultery. 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.
31 “It has been said, ‘Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce. 32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery.
33 “Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but keep the oaths you have made to the Lord.’ 34 But I tell you, Do not swear at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. 36 And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. 37 Simply let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.
38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth. 39 But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. 41 If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. 42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

1 وَإِذْ رَأَى جُمُوعَ النَّاسِ، صَعِدَ إِلَى الْجَبَلِ. وَمَا إِنْ جَلَسَ، حَتَّى اقْتَرَبَ إِلَيْهِ تَلامِيذُهُ.

2 فَتَكَلَّمَ وَأَخَذَ يُعَلِّمُهُمْ. فَقَالَ:

3 «طُوبَى لِلْمَسَاكِينِ بِالرُّوحِ، فَإِنَّ لَهُمْ مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَاوَاتِ.

4 طُوبَى لِلْحَزَانَى، فَإِنَّهُمْ سَيُعَزَّوْنَ.

5 طُوبَى لِلْوُدَعَاءِ، فَإِنَّهُمْ سَيَرِثُونَ الأَرْضَ.

6 طُوبَى لِلْجِيَاعِ وَالْعِطَاشِ إِلَى الْبِرِّ، فَإِنَّهُمْ سَيُشْبَعُونَ.

7 طُوبَى لِلرُّحَمَاءِ، فَإِنَّهُمْ سَيُرْحَمُونَ.

8 طُوبَى لأَنْقِيَاءِ الْقَلْبِ، فَإِنَّهُمْ سَيَرَوْنَ اللهَ .

9 طُوبَى لِصَانِعِي السَّلاَمِ، فَإِنَّهُمْ سَيُدْعَوْنَ أَبْنَاءَ اللهِ.

10 طُوبَى لِلْمُضْطَهَدِينَ مِنْ أَجْلِ الْبِرِّ، فَإِنَّ لَهُمْ مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَاوَاتِ.

11 طُوبَى لَكُمْ مَتَى أَهَانَكُمُ النَّاسُ وَاضْطَهَدُوكُمْ، وَقَالُوا فِيكُمْ مِنْ أَجْلِي كُلَّ سُوءٍ كَاذِبِينَ.

12 اِفْرَحُوا وَتَهَلَّلُوا، فَإِنَّ مُكَافَأَتَكُمْ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ عَظِيمَةٌ. فَإِنَّهُمْ هَكَذَا اضْطَهَدُوا الأَنْبِيَاءَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ!

13 أَنْتُمْ مِلْحُ الأَرْضِ. فَإِذَا فَسَدَ الْمِلْحُ، فَمَاذَا يُعِيدُ إِلَيْهِ مُلُوحَتَهُ؟ إِنَّهُ لاَ يَعُودُ يَصْلُحُ لِشَيْءٍ إِلاَّ لأَنْ يُطْرَحَ خَارِجاً لِتَدُوسَهُ النَّاسُ!

14 أَنْتُمْ نُورُ الْعَالَمِ. لاَ يُمْكِنُ أَنْ تُخْفَى مَدِينَةٌ مَبْنِيَّةٌ عَلَى جَبَلٍ؛

15 وَلاَ يُضِيءُ النَّاسُ مِصْبَاحاً ثُمَّ يَضَعُونَهُ تَحْتَ مِكْيَالٍ، بَلْ يَضَعُونَهُ فِي مَكَانٍ مُرْتَفِعٍ لِيُضِيءَ لِجَمِيعِ مَنْ فِي الْبَيْتِ.

16 هَكَذَا، فَلْيُضِيءْ نُورُكُمْ أَمَامَ النَّاسِ، لِيَرَوْا أَعْمَالَكُمُ الْحَسَنَةَ وَيُمَجِّدُوا أَبَاكُمُ الَّذِي فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ.

17 لاَ تَظُنُّوا أَنِّي جِئْتُ لأُلْغِيَ الشَّرِيعَةَ أَوِ الأَنْبِيَاءَ. مَا جِئْتُ لأُلْغِيَ، بَلْ لأُكَمِّلَ.

18 فَالْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: إِلَى أَنْ تَزُولَ الأَرْضُ وَالسَّمَاءُ، لَنْ يَزُولَ حَرْفٌ وَاحِدٌ أَوْ نُقْطَةٌ وَاحِدَةٌ مِنَ الشَّرِيعَةِ، حَتَّى يَتِمَّ كُلُّ شَيْءٍ.

19 فَأَيُّ مَنْ خَالَفَ وَاحِدَةً مِنْ هَذِهِ الْوَصَايَا الصُّغْرَى، وَعَلَّمَ النَّاسَ أَنْ يَفْعَلُوا فِعْلَهُ، يُدْعَى الأَصْغَرَ فِي مَلَكُوتِ السَّمَاوَاتِ. وَأَمَّا مَنْ عَمِلَ بِهَا وَعَلَّمَهَا، فَيُدْعَى عَظِيماً فِي مَلَكُوتِ السَّمَاوَاتِ.

20 فَإِنِّي أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: إِنْ لَمْ يَزِدْ بِرُّكُمْ عَلَى بِرِّ الْكَتَبَةِ والْفَرِّيسِيِّينَ، لَنْ تَدْخُلُوا مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَاوَاتِ أَبَداً.

21 سَمِعْتُمْ أَنَّهُ قِيلَ لِلأَقْدَمِينَ: لاَ تَقْتُلْ! وَمَنْ قَتَلَ يَسْتَحِقُّ الْمُحَاكَمَةَ.

22 أَمَّا أَنَا فَأَقُولُ لَكُمْ: كُلُّ مَنْ هُوَ غَاضِبٌ عَلَى أَخِيهِ، يَسْتَحِقُّ الْمُحَاكَمَةَ؛ وَمَنْ يَقُولُ لأَخِيهِ: يَاتَافِهُ! يَسْتَحِقُّ الْمُثُولَ أَمَامَ الْمَجْلِسِ الأَعْلَى؛ وَمَنْ يَقُولُ: يَاأَحْمَقُ! يَسْتَحِقُّ نَارَ جَهَنَّمَ!

23 فَإِذَا جِئْتَ بِتَقْدِمَتِكَ إِلَى الْمَذْبَحِ، وَهُنَاكَ تَذَكَّرْتَ أَنَّ لأَخِيكَ شَيْئاً عَلَيْكَ،

24 فَاتْرُكْ تَقْدِمَتَكَ أَمَامَ الْمَذْبَحِ، وَاذْهَبْ أَوَّلاً وَصَالِحْ أَخَاكَ، ثُمَّ ارْجِعْ وَقَدِّمْ تَقْدِمَتَكَ.

25 سَارِعْ إِلَى اسْتِرْضَاءِ خَصْمِكَ وَأَنْتَ مَعَهُ فِي الطَّرِيقِ إِلَى الْمَحْكَمَةِ، قَبْلَ أَنْ يُسَلِّمَكَ الْخَصْمُ إِلَى الْقَاضِي، فَيُسَلِّمَكَ الْقَاضِي إِلَى الشُّرَطِيِّ، فَيُلْقِيَكَ فِي السِّجْنِ.

26 وَالْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكَ إِنَّكَ لَنْ تَخْرُجَ مِنَ السِّجْنِ حَتَّى تُوْفِيَ الْفَلْسَ الأَخِيرَ!

27 وَسَمِعْتُمْ أَنَّهُ قِيلَ: لاَ تَزْنِ!

28 أَمَّا أَنَا فَأَقُولُ لَكُمْ: كُلُّ مَنْ يَنْظُرُ إِلَى امْرَأَةٍ بِقَصْدِ أَنْ يَشْتَهِيَهَا، فَقَدْ زَنَى بِهَا فِي قَلْبِهِ!

29 فَإِنْ كَانَتْ عَيْنُكَ الْيُمْنَى فَخّاً لَكَ، فَاقْلَعْهَا وَارْمِهَا عَنْكَ، فَخَيْرٌ لَكَ أَنْ تَفْقِدَ عُضْواً مِنْ أَعْضَائِكَ وَلاَ يُطْرَحَ جَسَدُكَ كُلُّهُ فِي جَهَنَّمَ!

30 وَإِنْ كَانَتْ يَدُكَ الْيُمْنَى فَخّاً لَكَ، فَاقْطَعْهَا وَارْمِهَا عَنْكَ، فَخَيْرٌ لَكَ أَنْ تَفْقِدَ عُضْواً مِنْ أَعْضَائِكَ وَلاَ يُطْرَحَ جَسَدُكَ كُلُّهُ فِي جَهَنَّمَ!

31 وَقِيلَ أَيْضاً: مَنْ طَلَّقَ زَوْجَتَهُ، فَلْيُعْطِهَا وَثِيقَةَ طَلاَقٍ.

32 أَمَّا أَنَا فَأَقُولُ لَكُمْ: كُلُّ مَنْ طَلَّقَ زَوْجَتَهُ لِغَيْرِ عِلَّةِ الزِّنَى، فَهُوَ يَجْعَلُهَا تَرْتَكِبُ الزِّنَى. وَمَنْ تَزَوَّجَ بِمُطَلَّقَةٍ، فَهُوَ يَرْتَكِبُ الزِّنَى.

33 وَسَمِعْتُمْ أَنَّهُ قِيلَ لِلأَقْدَمِينَ: لاَ تُخَالِفْ قَسَمَكَ، بَلْ أَوْفِ لِلرَّبِّ مَا نَذَرْتَهُ لَهُ.

34 أَمَّا أَنَا فَأَقُولُ لَكُمْ: لاَ تَحْلِفُوا أَبَداً، لاَ بِالسَّمَاءِ لأَنَّهَا عَرْشُ اللهِ،

35 وَلا بِالأَرْضِ لأَنَّهَا مَوْطِيءُ قَدَمَيْهِ، وَلاَ بِأُورُشَلِيمَ لأَنَّهَا مَدِينَةُ الْمَلِكِ الأَعْظَمِ.

36 وَلاَ تَحْلِفْ بِرَأْسِكَ لأَنَّكَ لاَ تَقْدِرُ أَنْ تَجْعَلَ شَعْرَةً وَاحِدَةً فِيهَا بَيْضَاءَ أَوْ سَوْدَاءَ.

37 لِيَكُنْ كَلامُكُمْ: نَعَمْ، إِنْ كَانَ نَعَمْ؛ أَوْ: لاَ، إِنْ كَانَ لاَ. وَمَا زَادَ عَلَى ذَلِكَ فَهُوَ مِنَ الشِّرِّيرِ.

38 وَسَمِعْتُمْ أَنَّهُ قِيلَ: عَيْنٌ بِعَيْنٍ وَسِنٌّ بِسِنٍّ.

39 أَمَّا أَنَا فَأَقُولُ لَكُمْ: لاَ تُقَاوِمُوا الشَّرَّ بِمِثْلِهِ، بَلْ مَنْ لَطَمَكَ عَلَى خَدِّكَ الأَيْمَنِ، فَأَدِرْ لَهُ الْخَدَّ الآخَرَ؛

40 وَمَنْ أَرَادَ مُحَاكَمَتَكَ لِيَأْخُذَ ثَوْبَكَ، فَاتْرُكْ لَهُ رِدَاءَكَ أَيْضاً؛

41 وَمَنْ سَخَّرَكَ أَنْ تَسِيرَ مِيلاً، فَسِرْ مَعَهُ مِيلَيْنِ.

42 مَنْ طَلَبَ مِنْكَ شَيْئاً، فَأَعْطِهِ. وَمَنْ جَاءَ يَقْتَرِضُ مِنْكَ، فَلاَ تَرُدَّهُ خَائِباً!

43 وَسَمِعْتُمْ أَنَّهُ قِيلَ: تُحِبُّ قَرِيبَكَ وَتُبْغِضُ عَدُوَّكَ.

44 أَمَّا أَنَا فَأَقُولُ لَكُمْ: أَحِبُّوا أَعْدَاءَكُمْ، وَبَارِكُوا لاَعِنِيكُمْ، وَأَحْسِنُوا مُعَامَلَةَ الَّذِينَ يُبْغِضُونَكُمْ، وَصَلُّوا لأَجْلِ الَّذِينَ يُسِيئُونَ إِلَيْكُمْ وَيَضْطَهِدُونَكُمْ،

45 فَتَكُونُوا أَبْنَاءَ أَبِيكُمُ الَّذِي فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ: فَإِنَّهُ يُشْرِقُ بِشَمْسِهِ عَلَى الأَشْرَارِ وَالصَّالِحِينَ، وَيُمْطِرُ عَلَى الأَبْرَارِ وَغَيْرِ الأَبْرَارِ.

46 فَإِنْ أَحْبَبْتُمُ الَّذِينَ يُحِبُّونَكُمْ، فَأَيَّةُ مُكَافَأَةٍ لَكُمْ؟ أَمَا يَفْعَلُ ذَلِكَ حَتَّى جُبَاةُ الضَّرَائِبِ؟

47 وَإِنْ رَحَّبْتُمْ بِإِخْوَانِكُمْ فَقَطْ، فَأَيَّ شَيْءٍ فَائِقٍ لِلْعَادَةِ تَفْعَلُونَ؟ أَمَا يَفْعَلُ ذَلِكَ حَتَّى الْوَثَنِيُّونَ؟

48 فَكُونُوا أَنْتُمْ كَامِلِينَ، كَمَا أَنَّ أَبَاكُمُ السَّمَاوِيَّ هُوَ كَامِلٌ!

6:
1 “Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
2 “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
9 “This, then, is how you should pray:
” ‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 Forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one. 14 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
16 “When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show men they are fasting. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 17 But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, 18 so that it will not be obvious to men that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
22 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
24 “No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

1 احْذَرُوا مِنْ أَنْ تَعْمَلُوا بِرَّكُمْ أَمَامَ النَّاسِ بِقَصْدِ أَنْ يَنْظُرُوا إِلَيْكُمْ. وَإِلاَّ، فَلَيْسَ لَكُمْ مُكَافَأَةٌ عِنْدَ أَبِيكُمُ الَّذِي فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ.

2 فَإِذَا تَصَدَّقْتَ عَلَى أَحَدٍ، فَلاَ تَنْفُخْ أَمَامَكَ فِي الْبُوقِ، كَمَا يَفْعَلُ الْمُرَاؤُونَ فِي الْمَجَامِعِ وَالشَّوَارِعِ، لِيَمْدَحَهُمُ النَّاسُ. الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: إِنَّهُمْ قَدْ نَالُوا مُكَافَأَتَهُمْ.

3 أَمَّا أَنْتَ، فَعِنْدَمَا تَتَصَدَّقُ عَلَى أَحَدٍ، فَلاَ تَدَعْ يَدَكَ الْيُسْرَى تَعْرِفُ مَا تَفْعَلُهُ الْيُمْنَى.

4 لِتَكُونَ صَدَقَتُكَ فِي الْخَفَاءِ، وَأَبُوكَ السَّمَاوِيُّ الَّذِي يَرَى فِي الْخَفَاءِ، هُوَ يُكَافِئُكَ.

5 وَعِنْدَمَا تُصَلُّونَ، لاَ تَكُونُوا مِثْلَ الْمُرَائِينَ الَّذِينَ يُحِبُّونَ أَنْ يُصَلُّوا وَاقِفِينَ فِي الْمَجَامِعِ وَفِي زَوَايَا الشَّوَارِعِ لِيَرَاهُمُ النَّاسُ. الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: إِنَّهُمْ قَدْ نَالُوا مُكَافَأَتَهُمْ.

6 أَمَّا أَنْتَ، فَعِنْدَمَا تُصَلِّي، فَادْخُلْ غُرْفَتَكَ، وَأَغْلِقِ الْبَابَ عَلَيْكَ، وَصَلِّ إِلَى أَبِيكَ الَّذِي فِي الْخَفَاءِ. وَأَبُوكَ الَّذِي يَرَى فِي الْخَفَاءِ، هُوَ يُكَافِئُكَ.

7 وَعِنْدَمَا تُصَلُّونَ، لاَ تُكَرِّرُوا كَلاماً فَارِغاً كَمَا يَفْعَلُ الْوَثَنِيُّونَ، ظَنّاً مِنْهُمْ أَنَّهُ بِالإِكْثَارِ مِنَ الْكَلامِ، يُسْتَجَابُ لَهُمْ.

8 فَلاَ تَكُونُوا مِثْلَهُمْ، لأَنَّ أَبَاكُمْ يَعْلَمُ مَا تَحْتَاجُونَ إِلَيْهِ قَبْلَ أَنْ تَسْأَلُوهُ.

9 فَصَلُّوا أَنْتُمْ مِثْلَ هَذِهِ الصَّلاَةِ: أَبَانَا الَّذِي فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ، لِيَتَقَدَّسِ اسْمُكَ!

10 لِيَأْتِ مَلَكُوتُكَ! لِتَكُنْ مَشِيئَتُكَ عَلَى الأَرْضِ كَمَا هِيَ فِي السَّمَاءِ!

11 خُبْزَنَا كَفَافَنَا أَعْطِنَا الْيَوْمَ!

12 وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا، كَمَا نَغْفِرُ نَحْنُ لِلْمُذْنِبِينَ إِلَيْنَا!

13 وَلاَ تُدْخِلْنَا فِي تَجْرِبَةٍ، لَكِنْ نَجِّنَا مِنَ الشِّرِّيرِ، لأَنَّ لَكَ الْمُلْكَ وَالْقُوَّةَ وَالْمَجْدَ إِلَى الأَبَدِ. آمِين.

14 فَإِنْ غَفَرْتُمْ لِلنَّاسِ زَلاَّتِهِمْ، يَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ أَبُوكُمُ السَّمَاوِيُّ زَلاَّتِكُمْ.

15 وَإِنْ لَمْ تَغْفِرُوا لِلنَّاسِ، لاَ يَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ أَبُوكُمُ السَّمَاوِيُّ زَلاَّتِكُمْ.

16 وَعِنْدَمَا تَصُومُونَ، لاَ تَكُونُوا عَابِسِي الْوُجُوهِ، كَمَا يَفْعَلُ الْمُرَاؤُونَ الَّذِينَ يُقَطِّبُونَ وُجُوهَهُمْ لِكَيْ يَظْهَرُوا لِلنَّاسِ صَائِمِينَ. الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ إِنَّهُمْ قَدْ نَالُوا مُكَافَأَتَهُمْ.

17 أَمَّا أَنْتَ، فَعِنْدَمَا تَصُومُ، فَاغْسِلْ وَجْهَكَ، وَعَطِّرْ رَأْسَكَ،

18 لِكَيْ لاَ تَظْهَرَ لِلنَّاسِ صَائِماً، بَلْ لأَبِيكَ الَّذِي فِي الْخَفَاءِ. وَأَبُوكَ الَّذِي يَرَى فِي الْخَفَاءِ، هُوَ يُكَافِئُكَ.

19 لاَ تَكْنِزُوا لَكُمْ كُنُوزاً عَلَى الأَرْضِ، حَيْثُ يُفْسِدُهَا السُّوسُ وَالصَّدَأُ، وَيَنْقُبُ عَنْهَا اللُّصُوصُ وَيَسْرِقُونَ.

20 بَلِ اكْنِزُوا لَكُمْ كُنُوزاً فِي السَّمَاءِ، حَيْثُ لاَ يُفْسِدُهَا سُوسٌ وَلاَ يَنْقُبُ عَنْهَا لُصُوصٌ وَلاَ يَسْرِقُونَ.

21 فَحَيْثُ يَكُونُ كَنْزُكَ، هُنَاكَ أَيْضاً يَكُونُ قَلْبُكَ !

22 الْعَيْنُ مِصْبَاحُ الْجَسَدِ. فَإِنْ كَانَتْ عَيْنُكَ سَلِيمَةً، يَكُونُ جَسَدُكَ كُلُّهُ مُنَوَّراً.

23 وَإِنْ كَانَتْ عَيْنُكَ سَيِّئَةً، يَكُونُ جَسَدُكَ كُلُّهُ مُظْلِماً. فَإِذَا كَانَ النُّورُ الَّذِي فِيكَ ظَلاَماً، فَمَا أَشَدَّ الظَّلاَمَ!

24 لاَ يُمْكِنُ لأَحَدٍ أَنْ يَكُونَ عَبْداً لِسَيِّدَيْنِ: لأَنَّهُ إِمَّا أَنْ يُبْغِضَ أَحَدَهُمَا فَيُحِبَّ الآخَرَ، وَإِمَّا أَنْ يَلْزَمَ أَحَدَهُمَا فَيَهْجُرَ الآخَرَ. لاَ يُمْكِنُكُمْ أَنْ تَكُونُوا عَبِيداً لِلهِ وَالْمَالِ مَعاً.

25 لِذلِكَ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: لاَ تَهْتَمُّوا لِمَعِيشَتِكُمْ بِشَأْنِ مَا تَأْكُلُونَ وَمَا تَشْرَبُونَ، وَلاَ لأَجْسَادِكُمْ بِشَأْنِ مَا تَكْتَسُونَ. أَلَيْسَتِ الْحَيَاةُ أَكْثَرَ مِنْ مُجَرَّدِ طَعَامٍ، وَالْجَسَدُ أَكْثَرَ مِنْ مُجَرَّدِ كِسَاءٍ؟

26 تَأَمَّلُوا طُيُورَ السَّمَاءِ: إِنَّهَا لاَ تَزْرَعُ وَلاَ تَحْصُدُ وَلاَ تَجْمَعُ فِي مَخَازِنَ، وَأَبُوكُمُ السَّمَاوِيُّ يَعُولُهَا. أَفَلَسْتُمْ أَنْتُمْ أَفْضَلَ مِنْهَا كَثِيراً؟

27 فَمَنْ مِنْكُمْ إِذَا حَمَلَ الْهُمُومَ يَقْدِرُ أَنْ يُطِيلَ عُمْرَهُ وَلَوْ سَاعَةً وَاحِدَةً؟

28 وَلِمَاذَا تَحْمِلُونَ هَمَّ الْكِسَاءِ؟ تَأَمَّلُوا زَنَابِقَ الْحَقْلِ كَيْفَ تَنْمُو: إِنَّهَا لاَ تَتْعَبُ وَلاَ تَغْزِلُ؛

29 وَلَكِنِّي أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: حَتَّى سُلَيْمَانُ فِي قِمَّةِ مَجْدِهِ لَمْ يَكْتَسِ مَا يُعَادِلُ وَاحِدَةً مِنْهَا بَهَاءً!

30 فَإِنْ كَانَ اللهُ هَكَذَا يَكْسُو الأَعْشَابَ الْبَرِّيَّةَ مَعَ أَنَّهَا تُوْجَدُ الْيَوْمَ وَتُطْرَحُ غَداً فِي النَّارِ، أَفَلَسْتُمْ أَنْتُمْ، يَاقَلِيلِي الإِيمَانِ، أَحْرَى جِدّاً بِأَنْ يَكْسُوَكُمْ؟

31 فَلاَ تَحْمِلُوا الْهَمَّ قَائِلِينَ: مَا عَسَانَا نَأْكُلُ؟ أَوْ: مَا عَسَانَا نَشْرَبُ؟ أَوْ: مَا عَسَانَا نَكْتَسِي؟

32 فَهَذِهِ الْحَاجَاتُ كُلُّهَا تَسْعَى إِلَيْهَا الأُمَمُ. فَإِنَّ أَبَاكُمُ السَّمَاوِيَّ يَعْلَمُ حَاجَتَكُمْ إِلَى هَذِهِ كُلِّهَا.

33 أَمَّا أَنْتُمْ، فَاطْلُبُوا أَوَّلاً مَلَكُوتَ اللهِ وَبِرِّهِ، وَهَذِهِ كُلُّهَا تُزَادُ لَكُمْ.

34 لاَ تَهْتَمُّوا بِأَمْرِ الْغَدِ، فَإِنَّ الْغَدَ يَهْتَمُّ بِأَمْرِ نَفْسِهِ. يَكْفِي كُلَّ يَوْمٍ مَا فِيهِ مِنْ سُوءٍ

7:
1 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
6 “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.
7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
9 “Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! 12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.

9 وَإِلاَّ، فَأَيُّ إِنْسَانٍ مِنْكُمْ يَطْلُبُ مِنْهُ ابْنُهُ خُبْزاً، فَيُعْطِيهِ حَجَراً،

10 أَوْ سَمَكَةً، فَيُعْطِيهِ حَيَّةً؟

11 فَإِنْ كُنْتُمْ وَأَنْتُمْ أَشْرَارٌ، تَعْرِفُونَ أَنْ تُعْطُوا أَوْلاَدَكُمْ عَطَايَا جَيِّدَةً، فَكَمْ بِالأَحْرَى جِدّاً يُعْطِي أَبُوكُمُ السَّمَاوِيُّ عَطَايَا جَيِّدَةً لِلَّذِينَ يَطْلُبُونَ مِنْهُ؟

12 إِذَنْ، كُلُّ مَا تُرِيدُونَ أَنْ يُعَامِلَكُمُ النَّاسُ بِهِ، فَعَامِلُوهُمْ أَنْتُمْ بِهِ أَيْضاً: هَذِهِ خُلاَصَةُ تَعْلِيمِ الشَّرِيعَةِ وَالأَنْبِيَاءِ.

13 اُدْخُلُوا مِنَ الْبَابِ الضَّيِّقِ! فَإِنَّ الْبَابَ الْمُؤَدِّيَ إِلَى الْهَلاَكِ وَاسِعٌ وَطَرِيقَهُ رَحْبٌ؛ وَكَثِيرُونَ هُمُ الَّذِينَ يَدْخُلُونَ مِنْهُ.

14 مَا أَضْيَقَ الْبَابَ وَأَعْسَرَ الطَّرِيقَ الْمُؤَدِّيَ إِلَى الْحَيَاةِ! وَقَلِيلُونَ هُمُ الَّذِينَ يَهْتَدُونَ إِلَيْهِ.

15 اِحْذَرُوا الأَنْبِيَاءَ الدَّجَّالِينَ الَّذِينَ يَأْتُونَ إِلَيْكُمْ لاَبِسِينَ ثِيَابَ الْحُمْلانِ، وَلَكِنَّهُمْ مِنَ الدَّاخِلِ ذِئَابٌ خَاطِفَةٌ!

16 مِنْ ثِمَارِهِمْ تَعْرِفُونَهُمْ. هَلْ يُجْنَى مِنَ الشَّوْكِ عِنَبٌ، أَوْ مِنَ الْعُلَّيْقِ تِينٌ؟

17 هَكَذَا، كُلُّ شَجَرَةٍ جَيِّدَةٍ تُثْمِرُ ثَمَراً جَيِّداً. أَمَّا الشَّجَرَةُ الرَّدِيئَةُ، فَإِنَّهَا تُثْمِرُ ثَمَراً رَدِيئاً.

18 لاَ يُمْكِنُ أَنْ تُثْمِرَ الشَّجَرَةُ الْجَيِّدَةُ ثَمَراً رَدِيئاً، وَلاَ الشَّجَرَةُ الرَّدِيئَةُ ثَمَراً جَيِّداً.

19 وَكُلُّ شَجَرَةٍ لاَ تُثْمِرُ ثَمَراً جَيِّداً، تُقْطَعُ وَتُطْرَحُ فِي النَّارِ.

20 إِذَنْ مِنْ ثِمَارِهِمْ تَعْرِفُونَهُمْ.

21 لَيْسَ كُلُّ مَنْ يَقُولُ لِي: يَارَبُّ، يَارَبُّ! يَدْخُلُ مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَاوَاتِ، بَلْ مَنْ يَعْمَلُ بِإِرَادَةِ أَبِي الَّذِي فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ.

22 فِي ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمِ سَيَقُولُ لِي كَثِيرُونَ: يَارَبُّ، يَارَبُّ، أَلَيْسَ بِاسْمِكَ تَنَبَّأْنَا، وَبِاسْمِكَ طَرَدْنَا الشَّيَاطِينَ، وَبِاسْمِكَ عَمِلْنَا مُعْجِزَاتٍ كَثِيرَةً؟

23 وَلَكِنِّي عِنْدَئِذٍ أُصَرِّحُ لَهُمْ: إِنِّي لَمْ أَعْرِفْكُمْ قَطُّ! ابْتَعِدُوا عَنِّي يَافَاعِلِي الإِثْمِ!

24 فَأَيُّ مَنْ يَسْمَعُ أَقْوَالِي هَذِهِ وَيَعْمَلُ بِهَا، أُشَبِّهُهُ بِرَجُلٍ حَكِيمٍ بَنَى بَيْتَهُ عَلَى الصَّخْرِ،

25 فَنَزَلَتِ الأَمْطَارُ، وَجَرَتِ السُّيُولُ، وَهَبَّتِ الْعَوَاصِفُ، فَضَرَبَتْ ذَلِكَ الْبَيْتَ، فَلَمْ يَسْقُطْ لأَنَّهُ مُؤَسَّسٌ عَلَى الصَّخْرِ.

26 وَأَيُّ مَنْ يَسْمَعُ أَقْوَالِي هَذِهِ وَلاَ يَعْمَلُ بِهَا، يُشَبَّهُ بِرَجُلٍ غَبِيٍّ بَنَى بَيْتَهُ عَلَى الرَّمْلِ،

27 فَنَزَلَتْ الأَمْطَارُ، وَجَرَتْ السُّيُولُ، وَهَبَّتِ الْعَوَاصِفُ، فَضَرَبَتْ ذَلِكَ الْبَيْتَ، فَسَقَطَ، وَكَانَ سُقُوطُهُ عَظِيماً»

28 وَلَمَّا أَنْهَى يَسُوعُ هَذَا الْكَلاَمَ، ذُهِلَتِ الْجُمُوعُ مِنْ تَعْلِيمِهِ،

29 لأَنَّهُ كَانَ يُعَلِّمُهُمْ كَصَاحِبِ سُلْطَانٍ، وَلَيْسَ مِثْلَ كَتَبَتِهِمْ

If God is not exactly like Jesus Christ then He is of no interest to me!!!!! Because the greatest thing in this world is to be like Christ!!!!!!
