The Gospel of Mark
Eastern Peshitta Aramaic
 

Chapter 9

1 ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܐܢܫܐ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܬܢܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܛܥܡܘܢ ܡܘܬܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܢܚܙܘܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܬܬ ܒܚܝܠܐ
And he said to them: Truly I say to you, There are some standing here, who will not taste of death, until they shall see the realm of God established in power.
2 ܘܒܬܪ ܫܬܐ ܝܘܡܝܢ ܕܒܪ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܟܐܦܐ ܘܠܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܤܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܪܡܐ ܒܠܚܘܕܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܬܚܠܦ ܠܥܢܝܗܘܢ
And after six days, Jesus took Cephas and James and John, and led them away to a high mountain; and was transfigured before them.
3 ܘܡܙܗܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܒܘܫܗ ܘܡܚܘܪ ܛܒ ܐܝܟ ܬܠܓܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܠܡܚܘܪܘ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ
And his raiment shined and was very white, like snow, as men on earth have never known such white.
4 ܘܐܬܚܙܝܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܠܝܐ ܘܡܘܫܐ ܟܕ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܥܡ ܝܫܘܥ
And there to them appeared Moses and Elijah in conversation with Jesus.
5 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܟܐܦܐ ܪܒܝ ܫܦܝܪ ܗܘ ܠܢ ܕܗܪܟܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܘܢܥܒܕ ܬܠܬ ܡܛܠܝܢ ܠܟ ܚܕܐ ܘܠܡܘܫܐ ܚܕܐ ܘܠܐܠܝܐ ܚܕܐ
And Cephas said to him: Master, it is joyful for  us  to be here. And let us erect three booths; one for you, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.
6 ܠܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܒܕܚܠܬܐ
But he did not know what he said, for they were in awe.
7 ܘܗܘܬ ܥܢܢܐ ܘܡܛܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܩܠܐ ܡܢ ܥܢܢܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܗܢܘ ܒܪܝ ܚܒܝܒܐ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘ
And there was a mist, and it overshadowed them. And from the mist a voice, which said: This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.
8 ܘܡܢ ܫܠܝܐ ܟܕ ܚܪܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܠܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܚܙܘ ܐܠܐ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܒܠܚܘܕܘܗܝ ܥܡܗܘܢ
And then, when the disciples looked up, they saw no one with them, except Jesus alone.
9 ܘܟܕ ܢܚܬܝܢ ܡܢ ܛܘܪܐ ܡܦܩܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܠܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܚܙܘ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܡܐ ܕܩܡ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܡܝܬܐ
And as they went down the mountain, he commanded them to tell no man what they had seen, until after the Son of man shall be raised from the dead.
10 ܘܐܚܕܘܗ ܠܡܠܬܐ ܒܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܡܢܐ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܡܐ ܕܩܡ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ
And they kept these words in their mind; and thought,  What do these words mean: " When he shall be raised from the dead !"
11 ܘܡܫܐܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܤܦܪܐ ܕܐܠܝܐ ܘܠܐ ܕܢܐܬܐ ܠܘܩܕܡ
And they asked him, and said: Why then do the scribes claim that Elijah must come first ?
12 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܠܝܐ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܩܕܡ ܕܟܠܡܕܡ ܢܬܩܢ ܘܐܝܟܢܐ ܟܬܝܒ ܥܠ ܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܕܤܓܝ ܢܚܫ ܘܢܤܬܠܐ
He said to them: Elijah will come first, to restore every thing: and, as it is written of the Son of man, he will suffer much, and be despised.
13 ܐܠܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܐܦ ܐܠܝܐ ܐܬܐ ܘܥܒܕܘ ܒܗ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܨܒܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܥܠܘܗܝ
But I say to you: That Elijah has come; and they have done to him all that they wanted, as it was written of him.
14 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܚܙܐ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܤܦܪܐ ܟܕ ܕܪܫܝܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ
And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great crowd with them, and the scribes debating with them.
15 ܘܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܟܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܘܬܘܗܘ ܘܪܗܛܘ ܫܐܠܘ ܒܫܠܡܗ
And immediately the crowd saw him, and were surprised: and they ran and greeted him.
16 ܘܡܫܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܠܤܦܪܐ ܡܢܐ ܕܪܫܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܡܗܘܢ
And he asked the scribes:  What were you debating with them ?
17 ܘܥܢܐ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܐܝܬܝܬ ܒܪܝ ܠܘܬܟ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܡܠܠܐ
And one of the crowd replied, and said: Teacher, I have brought to you my son, who has a spirit that makes him mute.
18 ܘܐܝܟܐ ܕܡܕܪܟܐ ܠܗ ܚܒܛܐ ܠܗ ܘܡܪܥܬ ܘܡܚܪܩ ܫܢܘܗܝ ܘܝܒܫ ܘܐܡܪܬ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܝܟ ܕܢܦܩܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ
And wherever he seizes  him, he shakes and tears him: and he gnashes his teeth, and wastes away. And I spoke to your disciples, to cast him out; and they could not.
19 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܘܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܗܝܡܢܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܐܡܬܝ ܐܗܘܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܐܡܬܝ ܐܤܝܒܪܟܘܢ ܐܝܬܐܘܗܝ ܠܘܬܝ
Jesus answered, and said to them: O unbelieving lot ! How long shall I be with you ? how long must I endure you ? Bring him to me.
20 ܘܐܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܟܕ ܚܙܬܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܚܒܛܬܗ ܘܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܘܡܬܒܥܩ ܗܘܐ ܘܡܪܥܬ
And they brought him to him. And when the spirit saw him, he immediately shook him; and he fell upon the ground, and convulsed.
21 ܘܫܐܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܕܟܡܐ ܠܗ ܙܒܢܐ ܗܐ ܡܢ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܗܘ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܐ ܡܢ ܛܠܝܘܬܗ
And Jesus asked his father, how long a time he had been so. He said to him: Alas, from childhood.
22 ܘܙܒܢܝܢ ܤܓܝܐܢ ܐܪܡܝܬܗ ܒܢܘܪܐ ܘܒܡܝܐ ܕܬܘܒܕܝܘܗܝ ܐܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܬ ܥܕܪܝܢܝ ܘܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝ
And many times it has thrown him into the fire, and into the water, if to kill him. But, if you can do any thing for us and have compassion on me.
23 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܢ ܡܫܟܚ ܐܢܬ ܕܬܗܝܡܢ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܡܫܟܚ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܠܡܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢ
Jesus said to him: If you can believe; every thing can be, to him that believes.
24 ܘܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܩܥܐ ܐܒܘܗܝ ܕܛܠܝܐ ܟܕ ܒܟܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܗܝܡܢ ܐܢܐ ܡܪܝ ܥܕܪ ܠܚܤܝܪܘܬ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܝ
And immediately the father of the child cried out, while he wept and said: I believe; help but my lack faith.
25 ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܪܗܛ ܥܡܐ ܘܡܬܟܢܫ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܐܐ ܒܗܝ ܪܘܚܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܪܘܚܐ ܚܪܫܬܐ ܕܠܐ ܡܡܠܠܐ ܐܢܐ ܦܩܕ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܝ ܦܘܩܝ ܡܢܗ ܘܬܘܒ ܠܐ ܬܥܠܝܢ ܠܗ
And when Jesus saw that the people were rapidly gathering around him, he reprimanded the unclean spirit, and said to him: You deaf and mute spirit, I command you, come out of him; and enter him no more. 
26 ܘܩܥܐ ܫܐܕܐ ܗܘ ܤܓܝ ܘܫܚܩܗ ܘܢܦܩ ܘܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܝܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܤܓܝܐܐ ܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܕܡܝܬ ܠܗ
And the demon shouted out, and convulsed him, and came out. And he was as a corpse; so that many would say, he is dead.
27 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܚܕܗ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ
And Jesus took  him by the hand, and got him up.
28 ܟܕ ܥܠ ܕܝܢ ܠܒܝܬܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܫܐܠܘܗܝ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܒܠܚܘܕܝܗܘܢ ܠܡܢܐ ܚܢܢ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܢ ܠܡܦܩܘܬܗ
And when Jesus entered the house, his disciples asked him privately: Why could we not cast him out ?
29 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܢܐ ܓܢܤܐ ܒܡܕܡ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܦܩ ܐܠܐ ܒܨܘܡܐ ܘܒܨܠܘܬܐ
He said to them: This kind you can drive out by nothing but fasting and prayer.
30 ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܥܒܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܓܠܝܠܐ ܘܠܐ ܨܒܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܐܢܫ ܢܕܥ ܒܗ
And when he left from there, they passed through Galilee: and he wanted that no one might recognize him.
31 ܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܡܫܬܠܡ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܘܢܩܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܡܐ ܕܐܬܩܛܠ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܕܬܠܬܐ ܢܩܘܡ
For he taught his disciples, and said to them: The Son of man is to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will put him to death; and after his death, on the third day, he will rise.
32 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܠܡܠܬܐ ܘܕܚܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܢܫܐܠܘܢܝܗܝ
But they did not understand his words; and they were afraid to ask him.
33 ܘܐܬܘ ܠܟܦܪܢܚܘܡ ܘܟܕ ܥܠܘ ܠܒܝܬܐ ܡܫܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܡܢܐ ܡܬܚܫܒܝܢ ܗܘܝܬܘܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܒܝܢܬܟܘܢ
And they came to Capernaum. And when they entered the house, he asked them: What discussed you among yourselves along the way ?
34 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܫܬܝܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܬܚܪܝܘ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܚܕ ܥܡ ܚܕ ܕܡܢܘ ܪܒ ܒܗܘܢ
And they were silent; for along the way they had argued with one another, which should be the greater among them.
35 ܘܝܬܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܩܪܐ ܠܬܪܥܤܪ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܕܟܠ ܐܢܫ ܘܡܫܡܫܢܐ ܕܟܠ ܐܢܫ
And Jesus sat down, and called the twelve, and said to them: Whoever would be first, let him be last of all, and servant to all.
36 ܘܢܤܒ ܛܠܝܐ ܚܕ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ ܒܡܨܥܬܐ ܘܫܩܠܗ ܥܠ ܕܪܥܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
And he took a child, and set him in their midst, and took him in his arms and said to them:
37 ܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܢܩܒܠ ܐܝܟ ܗܢܐ ܛܠܝܐ ܒܫܡܝ ܠܝ ܗܘ ܡܩܒܠ ܘܡܢ ܕܠܝ ܡܩܒܠ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܝ ܡܩܒܠ ܐܠܐ ܠܡܢ ܕܫܕܪܢܝ
Whoever receives one in my name, like this child, he receives me; and he that receives me, receives not me alone, but him that sent me.
38 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܘܚܢܢ ܪܒܝ ܚܙܝܢ ܐܢܫ ܕܡܦܩ ܫܐܕܐ ܒܫܡܟ ܘܟܠܝܢܝܗܝ ܥܠ ܕܠܐ ܢܩܦ ܠܢ
John said to him: Master, we saw one casting out demons in your name, and we stopped him, because he follows not with us.
39 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐ ܬܟܠܘܢܝܗܝ ܠܝܬ ܓܝܪ ܐܢܫ ܕܥܒܕ ܚܝܠܐ ܒܫܡܝ ܘܡܫܟܚ ܥܓܠ ܐܡܪ ܥܠܝ ܕܒܝܫ
Jesus said to them: Stop him not; for there is no one who does miracles in my name, who can readily speak evil of me also.
40 ܡܢ ܕܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܠܘܩܒܠܟܘܢ ܚܠܦܝܟܘܢ ܗܘ
Whoever is not against you, is for you.
41 ܟܠ ܕܝܢ ܕܢܫܩܝܟܘܢ ܟܤܐ ܕܡܝܐ ܒܠܚܘܕ ܒܫܡܐ ܕܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܘܒܕ ܐܓܪܗ
For whoever shall give you a cup of water to drink, only on the grounds that you are Messiah's followers, truly I say to you, he will not lose his reward.
42 ܘܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܢܟܫܠ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܙܥܘܪܐ ܕܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܒܝ ܦܩܚ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܐܠܘ ܪܡܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܪܚܝܐ ܕܚܡܪܐ ܒܨܘܪܗ ܘܫܕܐ ܒܝܡܐ
And whoever shall cause one of these little ones that believes in me to stumble, it were better for him if a millstone were put to his neck, and he fell into the sea.
43 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܟܫܠܐ ܠܟ ܐܝܕܟ ܦܤܘܩܝܗ ܦܩܚ ܗܘ ܠܟ ܦܫܝܓܐ ܕܬܥܘܠ ܠܚܝܐ ܐܘ ܟܕ ܐܝܬ ܠܟ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܐܝܕܝܢ ܬܐܙܠ ܠܓܗܢܐ
And if your hand makes you offend, cut it off: better for you to enter into life maimed, than having two hands, to go into hell;
44 ܐܝܟܐ ܕܬܘܠܥܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܢܘܪܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܕܥܟܐ
where the worm dies not, and the fire is not extinguished.
45 ܘܐܢ ܪܓܠܟ ܡܟܫܠܐ ܠܟ ܦܤܘܩܝܗ ܦܩܚ ܗܘ ܠܟ ܕܬܥܘܠ ܠܚܝܐ ܚܓܝܤܐ ܐܘ ܟܕ ܐܝܬ ܠܟ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܪܓܠܝܢ ܬܦܠ ܒܓܗܢܐ
And if your foot makes you offend, cut it off: better for you to enter into life lame, than having two feet, to fall into hell;
46 ܐܝܟܐ ܕܬܘܠܥܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܢܘܪܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܕܥܟܐ
where the worm dies not, and the fire is not extinguished.
47 ܘܐܢ ܥܝܢܟ ܡܟܫܠܐ ܠܟ ܚܨܝܗ ܦܩܚ ܗܘ ܠܟ ܕܒܚܕܐ ܥܝܢܟ ܬܥܘܠ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܘ ܟܕ ܐܝܬ ܠܟ ܬܪܬܝܢ ܥܝܢܝܢ ܬܦܠ ܒܓܗܢܐ ܕܢܘܪܐ
And if your eye makes you offend, pluck it out: better for you to enter with one eye into the realm of God, than having two eyes, to fall into the hell of fire;
48 ܐܝܟܐ ܕܬܘܠܥܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܢܘܪܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܕܥܟܐ
where the worm dies not, and the fire is not extinguished.
49 ܟܠ ܓܝܪ ܒܢܘܪܐ ܢܬܡܠܚ ܘܟܠ ܕܒܚܬܐ ܒܡܠܚܐ ܬܬܡܠܚ
For every thing will be salted with fire; and every sacrifice will be salted with salt.
50 ܫܦܝܪܐ ܗܝ ܡܠܚܐ ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܠܚܐ ܬܦܟܗ ܒܡܢܐ ܬܬܡܠܚ ܬܗܘܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܡܠܚܐ ܘܒܫܝܢܐ ܗܘܘ ܚܕ ܥܡ ܚܕ
Salt is a good thing: but if the salt become tasteless, with of what will it be salted ? Let there be salt in you: and be you in peace, one with another.

Chapter 10

1 ܘܩܡ ܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܬܚܘܡܐ ܕܝܗܘܕ ܠܥܒܪܐ ܕܝܘܪܕܢܢ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܠܬܡܢ ܠܘܬܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܘܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܬܘܒ ܐܝܟ ܕܡܥܕ ܗܘܐ
And he left from there, and came to the border of Judaea, on the other side the Jordan. And great crowds came to him there; and again he instructed them, as he was accustomed.
2 ܘܩܪܒܘ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܡܢܤܝܢ ܠܗ ܘܡܫܐܠܝܢ ܕܐܢ ܫܠܝܛ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܕܢܫܒܘܩ ܐܢܬܬܗ
And the Pharisees came to him, and, testing him, inquired if it were permitted for a man to divorce his wife.
3 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܦܩܕܟܘܢ ܡܘܫܐ
He said to them: What did Moses command you?
4 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܡܘܫܐ ܐܦܤ ܠܢ ܕܢܟܬܘܒ ܟܬܒܐ ܕܫܘܒܩܢܐ ܘܢܫܪܐ
They said: Moses permitted us to write a decree of divorce, and send her away.
5 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܩܫܝܘܬ ܠܒܟܘܢ ܟܬܒ ܠܟܘܢ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܗܢܐ
Jesus answered and said to them: On account of your stubborn heart, Moses wrote you this commandment. 
6 ܡܢ ܒܪܫܝܬ ܕܝܢ ܕܟܪܐ ܘܢܩܒܬܐ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ
But, from the beginning, God made them male and female.
7 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܢܫܒܘܩ ܓܒܪܐ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܘܠܐܡܗ ܘܢܩܦ ܠܐܢܬܬܗ
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and cleave to his wife:
8 ܘܢܗܘܘܢ ܬܪܝܗܘܢ ܚܕ ܒܤܪ ܡܟܝܠ ܠܐ ܗܘܘ ܬܪܝܢ ܐܠܐ ܚܕ ܒܤܪ
and they two shall be one flesh. Wherefore they are not of two, but one flesh.
9 ܡܕܡ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܙܘܓ ܒܪܢܫܐ ܠܐ ܢܦܪܫ
What therefore God has joined, let not man separate.
10 ܘܫܐܠܘܗܝ ܬܘܒ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܒܒܝܬܐ ܥܠ ܗܕܐ
And in the house, again the disciples asked him of this matter.
11 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܠ ܡܢ ܕܢܫܪܐ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܘܢܤܒ ܐܚܪܬܐ ܓܐܪ
And he said to them: Whoever shall divorce his wife, and marries another, commits adultery.
12 ܘܐܢ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܬܫܪܐ ܒܥܠܗ ܘܬܗܘܐ ܠܐܚܪܢܐ ܓܝܪܐ
And if a woman shall leave her husband, and marry another, she commits adultery.
13 ܘܡܩܪܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܛܠܝܐ ܕܢܩܪܘܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܟܐܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗܠܝܢ ܕܡܩܪܒܝܢ ܠܗܘܢ
And they brought little children to him, that he might touch them. But his disciples reprimanded those who brought them.
14 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܚܙܐ ܘܐܬܒܐܫ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܒܘܩܘ ܛܠܝܐ ܐܬܝܢ ܠܘܬܝ ܘܠܐ ܬܟܠܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܝܟ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And when Jesus saw it, he was indignant; and he said to them, Let little children to come to me, and hinder them not; for of those like them is the realm of God.
15 ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܠ ܕܠܐ ܢܩܒܠ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܟ ܛܠܝܐ ܠܐ ܢܥܘܠ ܠܗ
Truly I say to you, That whoever does not receive the realm of God, like a little child, shall not enter it.
16 ܘܫܩܠ ܐܢܘܢ ܥܠ ܕܪܥܘܗܝ ܘܤܡ ܐܝܕܗ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܒܪܟ ܐܢܘܢ
And he took them in his arms, and laying his hand on them, blessed them.
17 ܘܟܕ ܪܕܐ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܪܗܛ ܚܕ ܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܒܘܪܟܘܗܝ ܘܡܫܐܠ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܛܒܐ ܡܢܐ ܐܥܒܕ ܕܐܬܪ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
And as he walked away, one ran and fell to his knees, and asked him, and said: Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life ?
18 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢܐ ܩܪܐ ܐܢܬ ܠܝ ܛܒܐ ܠܝܬ ܛܒܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܚܕ ܐܠܗܐ
Jesus said to him: Why do you call me good? There is none good, but God alone.
19 ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܬ ܠܐ ܬܓܘܪ ܠܐ ܬܓܢܘܒ ܠܐ ܬܩܛܘܠ ܘܠܐ ܬܤܗܕ ܤܗܕܘܬܐ ܕܓܠܬܐ ܠܐ ܬܛܠܘܡ ܝܩܪ ܠܐܒܘܟ ܘܠܐܡܟ
You know the commandments; you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not kill, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not deceive; honor your father and your mother.
20 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܢܛܪܬ ܐܢܝܢ ܡܢ ܛܠܝܘܬܝ
And he answered, and said to him: Teacher, all these have I kept since my childhood.
21 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܚܪ ܒܗ ܘܐܚܒܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܚܕܐ ܚܤܝܪܐ ܠܟ ܙܠ ܙܒܢ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܟ ܘܗܒ ܠܡܤܟܢܐ ܘܬܗܘܐ ܠܟ ܤܝܡܬܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܤܒ ܨܠܝܒܐ ܘܬܐ ܒܬܪܝ
And Jesus looked on him with love, and said to him: One thing you lack. Go, sell all that you possess, and give to the poor, and there will be a treasure for you in heaven; and take your cross, and follow me.
22 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܟܡܪ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܘܐܙܠ ܟܕ ܥܝܝܩܐ ܠܗ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܓܝܪ ܢܟܤܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ
And he was saddened by those words, and went away with sorrow: for he had great wealth.
23 ܚܪ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܒܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܡܐ ܥܛܠܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܗܘܢ ܢܟܤܐ ܕܢܥܠܘܢ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And Jesus looked upon his disciples, and said to them: How hard for those who have wealth, to enter into the realm of God !
24 ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܬܕܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠ ܡܠܘܗܝ ܘܥܢܐ ܬܘܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܒܢܝ ܟܡܐ ܥܛܠܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܬܟܝܠܝܢ ܥܠ ܢܟܤܝܗܘܢ ܕܢܥܠܘܢ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And the disciples were astounded at the remark. And Jesus, replied again, and said to them: My children, how hard it is, for those who trust in wealth to enter into the realm of God.
25 ܦܫܝܩ ܗܘ ܠܓܡܠܐ ܕܢܥܘܠ ܒܚܪܘܪܐ ܕܡܚܛܐ ܐܘ ܥܬܝܪܐ ܠܡܠܟܘܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܡܥܠ
It is easier for a rope [made of camel hair] to enter the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.
26 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܡܬܕܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܒܝܢܝܗܘܢ ܡܢܘ ܡܫܟܚ ܠܡܚܐ
And they were astonished even more, and said among themselves: Who can be saved !
27 ܚܪ ܕܝܢ ܒܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܗܕܐ ܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܐܠܐ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܓܝܪ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ
And Jesus looked on them again, and said to them: With men, this is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.
28 ܘܫܪܝ ܟܐܦܐ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܗܐ ܚܢܢ ܫܒܩܢ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܘܢܩܦܢܟ
And Cephas began to say: We have left every thing to follow you.
29 ܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܝܬ ܐܢܫ ܕܫܒܩ ܒܬܐ ܐܘ ܐܚܐ ܐܘ ܐܚܘܬܐ ܐܘ ܐܒܐ ܐܘ ܐܡܐ ܐܘ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܐܘ ܒܢܝܐ ܐܘ ܩܘܪܝܐ ܡܛܠܬܝ ܘܡܛܠ ܤܒܪܬܝ
Jesus answered and said: Truly I say to you, there is no man that leaves houses, or brothers or sisters, or father or mother, or wife or children, for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel,
30 ܘܠܐ ܢܩܒܠ ܚܕ ܒܡܐܐ ܗܫܐ ܒܙܒܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܒܬܐ ܘܐܚܐ ܘܐܚܘܬܐ ܘܐܡܗܬܐ ܘܒܢܝܐ ܘܩܘܪܝܐ ܥܡ ܪܕܘܦܝܐ ܘܒܥܠܡܐ ܕܐܬܐ ܚܝܐ ܕܠܥܠܡ
who will not receive a hundredfold, houses, and brothers and sisters, and mothers and children, and lands, not without persecution, now in the present age, and, in the world to come, eternal life.
31 ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܝܢ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܘܐܚܪܝܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ
But many come first, who will be last; and last, will come first.
32 ܟܕ ܤܠܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܗܘ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܕܝܡ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܡܬܬܡܗܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܟܕ ܕܚܝܠܝܢ ܘܕܒܪ ܠܬܪܥܤܪܬܗ ܘܫܪܝ ܕܢܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܥܬܝܕ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܠܗ
And as they were on the way to Jerusalem, Jesus walked ahead of them: and they were awed, and yet afraid. And he took his twelve, and began to tell them what was to happen to him.
33 ܕܗܐ ܤܠܩܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܡܫܬܠܡ ܠܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܠܤܦܪܐ ܘܢܚܝܒܘܢܝܗܝ ܠܡܘܬܐ ܘܢܫܠܡܘܢܝܗܝ ܠܥܡܡܐ
Behold, we are going to Jerusalem; and the Son of man will be handed over to the high priests and the Scribes; and they  will condemn him to die, and will hand him over to the Gentiles.
34 ܘܢܒܙܚܘܢ ܒܗ ܘܢܢܓܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܢܪܩܘܢ ܒܐܦܘܗܝ ܘܢܩܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܬܠܬܐ ܢܩܘܡ
And they will mock him, and will scourge him, and will spit in his face, and will kill him; and on the third day he will arise.
35 ܘܩܪܒܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܒܢܝ ܙܒܕܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܟܠ ܕܢܫܐܠ ܬܥܒܕ ܠܢ
And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him, and said to him: Teacher, we want that you would do for us all what we ask.
36 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܥܒܕ ܠܟܘܢ
He said to them: What would you for I to do for you?
37 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܗܒ ܠܢ ܕܚܕ ܢܬܒ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܟ ܘܚܕ ܡܢ ܤܡܠܟ ܒܫܘܒܚܟ
They say to him: Grant us, that one may sit on your right hand, and the other on your left, in your glory.
38 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܫܐܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܬܫܬܘܢ ܟܤܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܫܬܐ ܐܢܐ ܘܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܐܢܐ ܥܡܕ ܐܢܐ ܬܥܡܕܘܢ
But he said to them: You know not what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup which I am to drink ? and to be baptized with the baptism, that I am to be baptized with ? 
39 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܫܟܚܝܢܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܟܤܐ ܕܫܬܐ ܐܢܐ ܬܫܬܘܢ ܘܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܐ ܕܥܡܕ ܐܢܐ ܬܥܡܕܘܢ
They say to him:  We are able. Jesus said to them: The cup that I drink, you will drink, and the baptism that I am baptized with, you will be baptized with:
40 ܕܬܬܒܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܝ ܘܡܢ ܤܡܠܝ ܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܕܝܠܝ ܠܡܬܠ ܐܠܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܛܝܒܐ
But that you should sit on my right hand and on my left, is not mine to give, it is for those to whom it is reserved.
41 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܥܤܪܐ ܫܪܝܘ ܪܛܢܝܢ ܥܠ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ
And when the ten heard it, they began to be indignant towards James and John.
42 ܘܩܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܤܬܒܪܝܢ ܪܫܐ ܕܥܡܡܐ ܡܪܝܗܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܪܘܪܒܢܝܗܘܢ ܫܠܝܛܝܢ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ
And Jesus called them, and said to them: You know, that they who are heads of the nations, that lord over men, make their authority felt.
43 ܠܐ ܕܝܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܝܢܬܟܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܡܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܪܒܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܫܡܫܢܐ
But it shall not be so among you: but he that would be great among you, must be a servant to you.
44 ܘܐܝܢܐ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܨܒܐ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܕܟܠܢܫ
And he of you that aspires to be first, must be servant to every one.
45 ܐܦ ܒܪܗ ܓܝܪ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܠܐ ܐܬܐ ܕܢܫܬܡܫ ܐܠܐ ܕܢܫܡܫ ܘܕܢܬܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܦܘܪܩܢܐ ܚܠܦ ܤܓܝܐܐ
And also the Son of man came, not to be served, but to serve; and to give his  life in ransom for many.
46 ܘܐܬܘ ܠܐܝܪܝܚܘ ܘܟܕ ܢܦܩ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢ ܐܝܪܝܚܘ ܗܘ ܘܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܟܢܫܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܛܝܡܝ ܒܪ ܛܝܡܝ ܤܡܝܐ ܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܝܕ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܚܕܪ
And they came to Jericho. And as Jesus went out of Jericho, he and his disciples and a great crowd; a blind man, Timeus, the son of Timeus, was sitting by the side of the way, and begging.
47 ܘܫܡܥ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܗܘ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܘܫܪܝ ܠܡܩܥܐ ܘܠܡܐܡܪ ܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝ
And he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene; and he began to call out, and to say: You, Son of David, have pity on me.
48 ܘܟܐܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܢܫܬܘܩ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܩܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܒܪܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܐܬܪܚܡ ܥܠܝ
And many reprimanded him, that he might be quiet. But he called out even more, and said: You, Son of David, have pity on me.
49 ܘܩܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܦܩܕ ܕܢܩܪܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܩܪܐܘܗܝ ܠܤܡܝܐ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܬܠܒܒ ܩܘܡ ܩܪܐ ܠܟ
And Jesus stood, and ordered him to be called over. And they called the blind man over, and said to him:  Be brave: get up, he calls you.
50 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܤܡܝܐ ܫܕܐ ܠܒܫܗ ܘܩܡ ܐܬܐ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ
And the blind man cast aside his cloak and got up, and went to Jesus.
51 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܢܐ ܨܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܐܥܒܕ ܠܟ ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܤܡܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܪܒܝ ܕܐܚܙܐ
Jesus said to him: What is that you want I do for you ? And the blind man said to him: Master, that I may have sight.
52 ܘܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܚܙܝ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܟ ܐܚܝܬܟ ܘܡܚܕܐ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗ ܘܐܙܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ
And Jesus said to him: Go; your faith has healed you. And immediately his sight was restored; and he followed after him.

Chapter 11

1 ܘܟܕ ܩܪܒ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܒܝܬ ܦܓܐ ܘܒܝܬ ܥܢܝܐ ܠܘܬ ܛܘܪܐ ܕܙܝܬܐ ܫܕܪ ܬܪܝܢ ܡܢ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ
And as they approached Jerusalem, by Bethphage and Bethany, near the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples,
2 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܙܠܘ ܠܩܪܝܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܠܩܘܒܠܢ ܘܒܪ ܫܥܬܗ ܕܥܐܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܗ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܝܠܐ ܕܐܤܝܪ ܕܐܢܫ ܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܠܐ ܪܟܒܗ ܫܪܘ ܐܝܬܐܘܗܝ
and said to them: Go you to the village that is over before us, and as soon as you enter it, you will find a colt tied, on which no person has rode: untie it, and bring him here.
3 ܘܐܢ ܐܢܫ ܢܐܡܪ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܗܕܐ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܕܠܡܪܢ ܡܬܒܥܐ ܘܡܚܕܐ ܡܫܕܪ ܠܗ ܠܟܐ
And, if any one say to you, Why do you this ? Say you to him: Because our Master has need of it. And he will soon return it there.
4 ܘܐܙܠܘ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܥܝܠܐ ܕܐܤܝܪ ܥܠ ܬܪܥܐ ܠܒܪ ܒܫܘܩܐ ܘܟܕ ܫܪܝܢ ܠܗ
And they went, and they found the colt tied, by the door, outside in the street. And as they were untying it,
5 ܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܥܒܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܫܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܥܝܠܐ
some of those standing there, said to them: For what do you untie the colt ?
6 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܕܦܩܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܫܒܩܘ ܐܢܘܢ
And they said to them, as Jesus had told them; and they allowed them.
7 ܘܐܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܠܥܝܠܐ ܠܘܬ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܪܡܝܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܡܐܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܪܟܒ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܝܫܘܥ
And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their cloaks upon him, and set Jesus upon it.
8 ܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܫܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܢܚܬܝܗܘܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ ܘܐܚܪܢܐ ܦܤܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܤܘܟܐ ܡܢ ܐܝܠܢܐ ܘܡܫܘܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܚܐ
And many spread their cloaks in the way; and others cut branches from the trees, and laid them in the  way.
9 ܘܗܢܘܢ ܕܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܕܒܬܪܗ ܩܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܘܫܥܢܐ ܒܪܝܟ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܐ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ
And those ahead of him, and those following him shouted and said: Hosanna: Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord.
10 ܘܒܪܝܟܐ ܗܝ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܬܝܐ ܕܐܒܘܢ ܕܘܝܕ ܐܘܫܥܢܐ ܒܡܪܘܡܐ
And blessed is the kingdom of our father David to come. Hosanna in the highest.
11 ܘܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܚܙܐ ܟܠܡܕܡ ܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܥܕܢܐ ܕܪܡܫܐ ܢܦܩ ܠܒܝܬ ܥܢܝܐ ܥܡ ܬܪܥܤܪ
And Jesus entered Jerusalem and the temple, and viewed every thing. And when evening came, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.
12 ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܟܕ ܢܦܩ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܥܢܝܐ ܟܦܢ
And the following day, as he left Bethany, he felt hungry:
13 ܘܚܙܐ ܬܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܡܢ ܪܘܚܩܐ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗ ܛܪܦܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܕܐܢ ܢܫܟܚ ܒܗ ܡܕܡ ܘܟܕ ܐܬܐ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚ ܒܗ ܐܠܐ ܐܢ ܛܪܦܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܬܐܢܐ
and he saw a fig tree some distance off, on which were leaves, and he came to it, if he could find anything on it. And when he reached it, he found on it only leaves; for it was not the time for figs.
14 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܟܝܠ ܘܠܥܠܡ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܟܝ ܦܐܪܐ ܠܐ ܢܐܟܘܠ ܘܫܡܥܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܬܘ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ
And he said to it: From hereon and for ever, let no man eat fruit from you: and the disciples heard it. And they came to Jerusalem.
15 ܘܥܠ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܫܪܝ ܕܢܦܩ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܙܒܢܝܢ ܘܡܙܒܢܝܢ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܗܦܟ ܦܬܘܪܐ ܕܡܥܪܦܢܐ ܘܟܘܪܤܘܬܐ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܕܡܙܒܢܝܢ ܝܘܢܐ
And Jesus entered the temple of God: and he began to evict those who bought and sold in the temple; and he overturned the counters of the money brokers, and the seats of those that sold doves.
16 ܘܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܗܘܐ ܕܐܢܫ ܢܥܒܪ ܡܐܢܐ ܒܓܘ ܗܝܟܠܐ
And he told none of them to carry goods through the temple.
17 ܘܡܠܦ ܗܘܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܟܬܝܒ ܕܒܝܬܝ ܒܝܬ ܨܠܘܬܐ ܢܬܩܪܐ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܥܒܕܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܡܥܪܬܐ ܕܠܤܛܝܐ
And he taught them, and said: Is it not written, My house shall be called the house of prayer for all peoples ? But you have made it a den of thieves.
18 ܘܫܡܥܘ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܤܦܪܐ ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܐܝܟܢܐ ܢܘܒܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܕܚܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܡܢܗ ܡܛܠ ܕܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܬܡܝܗܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܝܘܠܦܢܗ
And the high priests and the scribes heard it, and they sought how they might do away with him; for they were afraid of him, because all the people admired his teachings.
19 ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܪܡܫܐ ܢܦܩܘ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ
And  when evening came, they went out from the city.
20 ܘܒܨܦܪܐ ܟܕ ܥܒܪܝܢ ܚܙܘ ܬܬܐ ܗܝ ܟܕ ܝܒܝܫܐ ܡܢ ܥܩܪܗ
And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up, as it were, to its roots.
21 ܘܐܬܕܟܪ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܪܒܝ ܗܐ ܬܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܠܛܬ ܝܒܫܬ
And Simon remembered, and said to  him: Master; look, the fig tree which you cursed, is dried up.
22 ܘܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܬܗܘܐ ܒܟܘܢ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And in reply, Jesus said to them: Have faith in God.
23 ܐܡܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܕܢܐܡܪ ܠܛܘܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܐܫܬܩܠ ܘܦܠ ܒܝܡܐ ܘܠܐ ܢܬܦܠܓ ܒܠܒܗ ܐܠܐ ܢܗܝܡܢ ܕܗܘܐ ܗܘ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܡܪ ܢܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܡܪ
Truly I say to you, That whoever shall say to this mountain, Be removed, and fall into the sea; and has no doubts in his heart, but shall believe that what he said will happen, to him will be done what he spoke.
24 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܡܨܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܫܐܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܕܢܤܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܢܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ
Therefore I say to you, That whatsoever you shall pray and ask for, believe that it will be so, and so it will be for you.
25 ܘܡܐ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܡܨܠܝܘ ܫܒܘܩܘ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܟܘܢ ܥܠ ܐܢܫ ܕܐܦ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܢܫܒܘܩ ܠܟܘܢ ܤܟܠܘܬܟܘܢ
And when you stand up to pray, forgive what you may hold toward anyone; that your Father who is in heaven may also forgive you in return.
26 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܐ ܫܒܩܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܦܠܐ ܐܒܘܟܘܢ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ ܢܫܒܘܩ ܠܟܘܢ ܤܟܠܘܬܟܘܢ
For if you do not forgive, your Father also who is in heaven will not forgive you in return.
27 ܘܐܬܘ ܬܘܒ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܟܕ ܡܗܠܟ ܗܘܐ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܐܬܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܤܦܪܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ
And they returned to Jerusalem. And as he was walking in the temple, the high priests and scribes and elders came to him,
28 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܬ ܘܡܢܘ ܝܗܒ ܠܟ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܬܥܒܕ
and said to him: By what authority do you do these things? And who gave you the authority to do these  things ?
29 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܫܐܠܟܘܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܕܬܐܡܪܘܢ ܠܝ ܘܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ
And Jesus said to them: I also will ask you a question, that you may tell me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.
30 ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܗ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܡܢ ܐܝܡܟܐ ܗܝ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܐܘ ܡܢ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܡܪܘ ܠܝ
The baptism of John, from where was it ? from heaven, or from men ? Tell me.
31 ܘܐܬܚܫܒܘ ܒܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܕܐܢ ܢܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܕܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܢ ܘܠܡܢܐ ܠܐ ܗܝܡܢܬܘܢܝܗܝ
And they thought to themselves, and said: If we should say to him, From heaven; he will say to us, Why then did you not put faith in him ?
32 ܘܕܢܐܡܪ ܡܢ ܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܗܝ ܡܢ ܥܡܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܐܚܝܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܕܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܢܒܝܐ ܗܘ
But if we should say, From men; there is reason to fear the people; for they have all held John to be truly a prophet.
33 ܘܥܢܘ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܥܒܕ ܐܢܐ
And they answered, and said to Jesus: We do not know. He said to them: Then neither will I tell you by what authority I do the things I do.

Chapter 12

1 ܘܫܪܝ ܕܢܡܠܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܒܡܬܠܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܢܨܒ ܟܪܡܐ ܘܐܚܕܪܗ ܤܝܓܐ ܘܚܦܪ ܒܗ ܡܥܨܪܬܐ ܘܒܢܐ ܒܗ ܡܓܕܠܐ ܘܐܘܚܕܗ ܠܦܠܚܐ ܘܚܙܩ
And he began to address them again in parables. A certain man planted a vineyard, and enclosed it with a hedge, and dug out a wine vat, and built a tower there, and leased it to the hands of tenant farmers, and went on a journey.
2 ܘܫܕܪ ܠܘܬ ܦܠܚܐ ܥܒܕܗ ܒܙܒܢܐ ܕܡܢ ܦܐܪܐ ܕܟܪܡܐ ܢܤܒ
And in due time, he sent his servant to the tenant farmers, to receive his share from the vineyard.
3 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܚܐܘܗܝ ܘܫܕܪܘܗܝ ܟܕ ܤܦܝܩ
And they beat him, and sent him away without.
4 ܘܫܕܪ ܬܘܒ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܥܒܕܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܘܐܦ ܠܗܘ ܪܓܡܘܗܝ ܘܨܠܦܘܗܝ ܘܫܕܪܘܗܝ ܒܨܥܪܐ
And again he sent to them another servant; and they stoned him also, and wounded him, and sent him away shamefully.
5 ܘܫܕܪ ܬܘܒ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܦ ܠܗܘ ܩܛܠܘܗܝ ܘܠܤܓܝܐܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܫܕܪ ܘܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܚܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܩܛܠܘ
And again he sent another; and they killed him. And he sent other servants, many of whom they beat, and some they killed.
6 ܚܪܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܚܕ ܒܪܐ ܚܒܝܒܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܘܫܕܪܗ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܐܚܪܝܬ ܐܡܪ ܓܝܪ ܟܒܪ ܢܒܗܬܘܢ ܡܢ ܒܪܝ
At last, having no one but his dear son, he sent him to them ; for he said, Perhaps they will respect my son.
7 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܦܠܚܐ ܐܡܪܘ ܒܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܗܢܘ ܝܪܬܐ ܬܘ ܢܩܛܠܝܘܗܝ ܘܬܗܘܐ ܕܝܠܢ ܝܪܬܘܬܐ
But those tenant farmers said among themselves: This is the heir; then, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.
8 ܘܢܤܒܘ ܩܛܠܘܗܝ ܘܐܦܩܘܗܝ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܟܪܡܐ
And they took him, and killed him, and dragged him outside of the vineyard.
9 ܡܢܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܥܒܕ ܡܪܐ ܟܪܡܐ ܢܐܬܐ ܢܘܒܕ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܦܠܚܐ ܘܢܬܠܝܘܗܝ ܟܪܡܐ ܠܐܚܪܢܐ
What therefore will the master of the vineyard do ? He will come and destroy those tenant farmers, and turn over the vineyard to others.
10 ܘܐܦܠܐ ܟܬܒܐ ܗܢܐ ܩܪܝܬܘܢ ܕܟܐܦܐ ܕܐܤܠܝܘ ܒܢܝܐ ܗܝ ܗܘܬ ܠܪܫܐ ܕܙܘܝܬܐ
And have you not read this scripture, The stone which the builders rejected, has become the keystone of the corner:
11 ܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܡܪܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܗܕܐ ܘܐܝܬܝܗ ܬܕܡܘܪܬܐ ܒܥܝܢܝܢ
For it was the Lord who did this; and it is not wonderful to behold ?
12 ܘܒܥܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܐܚܕܗ ܘܕܚܠܘ ܡܢ ܥܡܐ ܝܕܥܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܡܬܠܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܫܒܩܘܗܝ ܘܐܙܠܘ
And they sought to arrest him, but had fear of the people; for they knew that he spoke this parable about them. And they left him and went off.
13 ܘܫܕܪܘ ܠܘܬܗ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܡܢ ܕܒܝܬ ܗܪܘܕܤ ܕܢܨܘܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܒܡܠܬܐ
And they sent to him some of the scribes and of the household of Herod, to entrap him in sermon.
14 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܬܘ ܘܫܐܠܘܗܝ ܡܠܦܢܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܫܪܝܪ ܐܢܬ ܘܠܐ ܫܩܝܠ ܐܢܬ ܨܦܬܐ ܠܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܚܐܪ ܐܢܬ ܒܦܪܨܘܦܐ ܕܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܫܪܪܐ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܡܠܦ ܐܢܬ ܫܠܝܛ ܠܡܬܠ ܟܤܦ ܪܫܐ ܠܩܤܪ ܐܘ ܠܐ ܢܬܠ ܐܘ ܠܐ ܢܬܠ
And these came, and asked him: Teacher; we know that you are truthful, and have no fear of man; for you regard not the opinions of men, but teach the way of  God in truth. Is it permitted to give tribute tax  to  Caesar; or not ? Shall we give it, or not give ?
15 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܝܕܥ ܢܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܡܢܐ ܡܢܤܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܐܝܬܘ ܠܝ ܕܝܢܪܐ ܐܚܙܐ
And he knew their wile, and said to them: Why test you me ? Bring me a denarius, that I may see it.
16 ܘܐܝܬܝܘ ܠܗ ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܡܢܘ ܨܠܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܟܬܒܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܘ ܕܩܤܪ
And they brought him one. And he said to them: Whose is this image and inscription ? They said to him: Caesar's.
17 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܩܤܪ ܗܒܘ ܠܩܤܪ ܘܕܐܠܗܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܬܡܗܘ ܗܘܘ ܒܗ
Jesus said to them: What is Caesar's, give unto Caesar; and what is God's, give unto to God. And they were in awe of him.
18 ܘܐܬܘ ܙܕܘܩܝܐ ܠܘܬܗ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܩܝܡܬܐ ܠܝܬ ܘܡܫܐܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ
Then came to him Sadducees, who hold that there is no resurrection; and they asked him, and said:
19 ܡܠܦܢܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܟܬܒ ܠܢ ܕܐܢ ܡܐܬ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܕܐܢܫ ܘܫܒܩ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܘܒܢܝܐ ܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܢܤܒ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܘܢܩܝܡ ܙܪܥܐ ܠܐܚܘܗܝ
Teacher ; Moses wrote to us, that if a man's brother die, and leaves a widow, but leaves no children, his brother shall take his widow, and she raise up the line of this brother.
20 ܫܒܥܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܢܤܒ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܘܡܝܬ ܘܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܙܪܥܐ
There were seven brothers: and the first took a wife, and died, and left no line.
21 ܘܕܬܪܝܢ ܢܤܒܗ ܘܡܝܬ ܟܕ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܗܘ ܫܒܩ ܙܪܥܐ ܘܕܬܠܬܐ ܗܟܘܬ
And the second took her, and died, and he also left no line: and the third in like manner.
22 ܘܫܒܥܬܝܗܘܢ ܢܤܒܘܗ ܘܠܐ ܫܒܩܘ ܙܪܥܐ ܐܚܪܝܬ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܡܝܬܬ ܐܦ ܗܝ ܐܢܬܬܐ
And the seven took her, and left no line. Lastly, the woman also died.
23 ܒܩܝܡܬܐ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܐܝܢܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܬܗܘܐ ܐܢܬܬܐ ܫܒܥܬܝܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܢܤܒܘܗ
In the resurrection, therefore, of which one will she be the wife ? For all the seven married her.
24 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܛܠ ܗܕܐ ܛܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܟܬܒܐ ܘܠܐ ܚܝܠܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
Jesus said to them: Is it on this account that you are misled, because you understand not the scriptures, nor the power of God ?
25 ܡܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܩܡܘ ܡܢ ܡܝܬܐ ܠܐ ܢܤܒܝܢ ܢܫܐ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܢܫܐ ܗܘܝܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܐܠܐ ܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܒܫܡܝܐ
For when they rise from the dead, they neither take wives, nor are wives given to husbands; but they are as the angels that are in heaven.
26 ܥܠ ܡܝܬܐ ܕܝܢ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܠܐ ܩܪܝܬܘܢ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܕܡܘܫܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܡܢ ܤܢܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܗܗ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܘܐܠܗܗ ܕܐܝܤܚܩ ܘܐܠܗܗ ܕܝܥܩܘܒ
But as for the dead, that they rise, have you not read in the book of Moses,  in that about the bush, how God said: I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob ?
27 ܘܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܡܝܬܐ ܐܠܐ ܕܚܝܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܗܟܝܠ ܤܓܝ ܛܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
He is the God of the living, not of the dead. You, therefore, are greatly misled.
28 ܘܩܪܒ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܫܡܥ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܕܪܫܝܢ ܘܚܙܐ ܕܫܦܝܪ ܐܬܝܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܘܫܐܠܗ ܐܝܢܘ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܕܟܠܗܘܢ
And one of the scribes came, and heard them as they argued, and he saw how skillfully he answered them; and he asked him, Which is the first of all the commandments ?
29 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܕܡܝ ܡܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܫܡܥ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܠܗܢ ܡܪܝܐ ܚܕ ܗܘ
Jesus said to him: The first of all the commandments is: Hear, O Israel; the Lord our God is Lord alone:
30 ܘܕܬܪܚܡ ܠܡܪܝܐ ܐܠܗܟ ܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܠܒܟ ܘܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܢܦܫܟ ܘܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܪܥܝܢܟ ܘܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܚܝܠܟ ܗܢܘ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ
and you shall love the Lord your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your might. This is the first commandment. 
31 ܘܕܬܪܝܢ ܕܕܡܐ ܠܗ ܕܬܚܒ ܠܩܪܝܒܟ ܐܝܟ ܢܦܫܟ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܪܒ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܠܝܬ
And this is the second: You shall love your neighbor, as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.
32 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܗܘ ܤܦܪܐ ܫܦܝܪ ܪܒܝ ܒܫܪܪܐ ܐܡܪܬ ܕܚܕ ܗܘ ܘܠܝܬ ܐܚܪܝܢ ܠܒܪ ܡܢܗ
The scribe said to him: Excellent ! Master; you have spoken the truth; for he is the One, and there is no other beside him.
33 ܘܕܢܪܚܡܝܘܗܝ ܐܢܫ ܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܠܒܐ ܘܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܪܥܝܢܐ ܘܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܢܦܫܐ ܘܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܚܝܠܐ ܘܕܢܪܚܡ ܩܪܝܒܗ ܐܝܟ ܢܦܫܗ ܝܬܝܪܐ ܗܝ ܡܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܝܩܕܐ ܘܕܒܚܐ
And for a man to love him, with all the heart, and with all the mind, and with all the soul, and with all the might; and to love his neighbor, as himself; is better than any burnt offering or sacrifice.
34 ܝܫܘܥ ܕܝܢ ܚܙܝܗܝ ܕܚܟܝܡܐܝܬ ܡܦܢܐ ܦܬܓܡܐ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܠܐ ܗܘܝܬ ܪܚܝܩ ܡܢ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܬܘܒ ܐܡܪܚ ܕܢܫܐܠܝܘܗܝ
And Jesus approved that he replied insightfully; and he answered, and said to him: You are not far from the realm of God. And no one had courage again to question him.
35 ܘܥܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܘܐܡܪ ܟܕ ܡܠܦ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܤܦܪܐ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܒܪܗ ܗܘ ܕܕܘܝܕ
And as Jesus was teaching in the temple, he answered and said: How can the scribes say, that the Messiah is David's son ?
36 ܗܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܘܝܕ ܐܡܪ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܕܐܡܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܠܡܪܝ ܬܒ ܠܟ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܝ ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܤܝܡ ܒܥܠܕܒܒܝܟ ܟܘܒܫܐ ܬܚܝܬ ܪܓܠܝܟ
For David himself said, by the Holy Spirit:  The Lord said to my Lord; Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies a footstool beneath you.
37 ܗܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܕܘܝܕ ܩܪܐ ܠܗ ܡܪܝ ܘܐܝܟܢܐ ܒܪܗ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܘܟܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܫܡܥ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܒܤܝܡܐܝܬ
David therefore called him " My Lord " and now, how can he be his  son ? And all the crowd heard him with delight.
38 ܘܒܝܘܠܦܢܗ ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܡܢ ܤܦܪܐ ܕܨܒܝܢ ܕܒܐܤܛܠܐ ܢܗܠܟܘܢ ܘܪܚܡܝܢ ܫܠܡܐ ܒܫܘܩܐ
And he said to them in his teaching: Beware of the scribes, who parade in long robes, and accept the greetings of respect in the streets,
39 ܘܪܝܫ ܡܘܬܒܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܪܝܫ ܤܡܟܐ ܒܚܫܡܝܬܐ
and the best seats in the synagogues, and the best seats at banquets.
40 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܟܠܝܢ ܒܬܐ ܕܐܪܡܠܬܐ ܒܥܠܬܐ ܕܡܘܪܟܝܢ ܨܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܢܩܒܠܘܢ ܕܝܢܐ ܝܬܝܪܐ
They devour the savings of widows, that they prolong their prayers for appearances. These shall receive a severe condemnation.
41 ܘܟܕ ܝܬܒ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܒܝܬ ܓܙܐ ܚܐܪ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܟܢܫܐ ܪܡܝܢ ܥܘܪܦܢܐ ܒܝܬ ܓܙܐ ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܥܬܝܪܐ ܪܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܤܓܝ
And as Jesus sat across from the treasury-room, he saw how the crowd cast coins into the treasury. And many wealthy ones cast in many.
42 ܘܐܬܬ ܐܪܡܠܬܐ ܚܕܐ ܡܤܟܢܬܐ ܐܪܡܝܬ ܬܪܝܢ ܡܢܝܢ ܕܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܫܡܘܢܐ
And a poor widow came, and cast in two copper coins, which are worth near not.
43 ܘܩܪܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܬܠܡܝܕܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܡܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܗܕܐ ܐܪܡܠܬܐ ܡܤܟܢܬܐ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܕܪܡܝܢ ܐܪܡܝܬ ܒܝܬ ܓܙܐ
And Jesus called his disciples, and said to them: Truly I say to you, That this poor widow has cast into the treasury more than all they did.
44 ܟܠܗܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܡܢ ܡܕܡ ܕܝܬܝܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܪܡܝܘ ܗܕܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܚܤܝܪܘܬܗ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܐܪܡܝܬܗ ܟܠܗ ܩܢܝܢܗ
For they all cast in from surplus of their wealth, but she in her poverty, cast in all that she had, the whole of her property.
