The Prophecies

Genesis 18:1-23:

تكوين 18: 1 - 23

A reading from the book of Genesis of Moses the Prophet may his blessings be with us Amen.

من سفر التكوين لموسى النبى بركته المقدسة تكون معنا، آمين.

Then the LORD appeared to him by the terebinth trees of Mamre, as he was sitting in the tent door in the heat of the day. So he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, three men were standing by him; and when he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them, and bowed himself to the ground, and said, "My Lord, if I have now found favor in Your sight, do not pass on by Your servant.

وَظَهَرَ لَهُ الرَّبُّ عِنْدَ بَلُّوطَاتِ مَمْرَا وَهُوَ جَالِسٌ فِي بَابِ الْخَيْمَةِ وَقْتَ حَرِّ النَّهَارِ فَرَفَعَ عَيْنَيْهِ وَنَظَرَ وَاذَا ثَلاثَةُ رِجَالٍ وَاقِفُونَ لَدَيْهِ. فَلَمَّا نَظَرَ رَكَضَ لِاسْتِقْبَالِهِمْ مِنْ بَابِ الْخَيْمَةِ وَسَجَدَ الَى الارْضِ وَقَالَ: «يَا سَيِّدُ انْ كُنْتُ قَدْ وَجَدْتُ نِعْمَةً فِي عَيْنَيْكَ فَلا تَتَجَاوَزْ عَبْدَكَ.

Please let a little water be brought, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree. And I will bring a morsel of bread that you may refresh your hearts. After that you may pass by, inasmuch as you have come to your servant." They said, "Do as you have said. "So Abraham hurried into the tent to Sarah and said, "Quickly, make ready three measures of fine meal; knead it and make cakes.

لِيُؤْخَذْ قَلِيلُ مَاءٍ وَاغْسِلُوا ارْجُلَكُمْ وَاتَّكِئُوا تَحْتَ الشَّجَرَةِ فَاخُذَ كِسْرَةَ خُبْزٍ فَتُسْنِدُونَ قُلُوبَكُمْ ثُمَّ تَجْتَازُونَ لانَّكُمْ قَدْ مَرَرْتُمْ عَلَى عَبْدِكُمْ». فَقَالُوا: «هَكَذَا تَفْعَلُ كَمَا تَكَلَّمْتَ». فَاسْرَعَ ابْرَاهِيمُ الَى الْخَيْمَةِ الَى سَارَةَ وَقَالَ: «اسْرِعِي بِثَلاثِ كَيْلاتٍ دَقِيقا سَمِيذا. اعْجِنِي وَاصْنَعِي خُبْزَ مَلَّةٍ».

"And Abraham ran to the herd, took a tender and good calf, gave it to a young man, and he hastened to prepare it. So he took butter and milk and the calf, which he had prepared, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree as they ate. Then they said to him, "Where is Sarah your wife?" So he said, "Here, in the tent."

ثُمَّ رَكَضَ ابْرَاهِيمُ الَى الْبَقَرِ وَاخَذَ عِجْلا رَخْصا وَجَيِّدا وَاعْطَاهُ لِلْغُلامِ فَاسْرَعَ لِيَعْمَلَهُ. ثُمَّ اخَذَ زُبْدا وَلَبَنا وَالْعِجْلَ الَّذِي عَمِلَهُ وَوَضَعَهَا قُدَّامَهُمْ. وَاذْ كَانَ هُوَ وَاقِفا لَدَيْهِمْ تَحْتَ الشَّجَرَةِ اكَلُوا. وَقَالُوا لَهُ: «ايْنَ سَارَةُ امْرَاتُكَ؟»

And He said, "I will certainly return to you according to the time of life, and behold, Sarah your wife shall have a son." (Sarah was listening in the tent door, which was behind him.) Now Abraham and Sarah were old, well advanced in age; and Sarah had passed the age of childbearing. Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, "After I have grown old, shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?"

فَقَالَ: «هَا هِيَ فِي الْخَيْمَةِ». فَقَالَ: «انِّي ارْجِعُ الَيْكَ نَحْوَ زَمَانِ الْحَيَاةِ وَيَكُونُ لِسَارَةَ امْرَاتِكَ ابْنٌ». وَكَانَتْ سَارَةُ سَامِعَةً فِي بَابِ الْخَيْمَةِ وَهُوَ وَرَاءَهُ - وَكَانَ ابْرَاهِيمُ وَسَارَةُ شَيْخَيْنِ مُتَقَدِّمَيْنِ فِي الايَّامِ وَقَدِ انْقَطَعَ انْ يَكُونَ لِسَارَةَ عَادَةٌ كَالنِّسَاءِ. فَضَحِكَتْ سَارَةُ فِي بَاطِنِهَا قَائِلَةً: «ابَعْدَ فَنَائِي يَكُونُ لِي تَنَعُّمٌ وَسَيِّدِي قَدْ شَاخَ!»

And the LORD said to Abraham, "Why did Sarah laugh, saying, "Shall I surely bear a child, since I am old? 'Is anything too hard for the LORD? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son." But Sarah denied it, saying, "I did not laugh," for she was afraid. And He said, "No, but you did laugh!"
Then the men rose from there and looked toward Sodom, and Abraham went with them to send them on the way.

فَقَالَ الرَّبُّ لابْرَاهِيمَ: «لِمَاذَا ضَحِكَتْ سَارَةُ قَائِلَةً: افَبِالْحَقِيقَةِ الِدُ وَانَا قَدْ شِخْتُ؟ هَلْ يَسْتَحِيلُ عَلَى الرَّبِّ شَيْءٌ؟ فِي الْمِيعَادِ ارْجِعُ الَيْكَ نَحْوَ زَمَانِ الْحَيَاةِ وَيَكُونُ لِسَارَةَ ابْنٌ». فَانْكَرَتْ سَارَةُ قَائِلَةً: «لَمْ اضْحَكْ». (لانَّهَا خَافَتْ). فَقَالَ: «لا! بَلْ ضَحِكْتِ». ثُمَّ قَامَ الرِّجَالُ مِنْ هُنَاكَ وَتَطَلَّعُوا نَحْوَ سَدُومَ. وَكَانَ ابْرَاهِيمُ مَاشِيا مَعَهُمْ لِيُشَيِّعَهُمْ.

And the LORD said, "Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing, since Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the LORD, to do righteousness and justice, that the LORD may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.

فَقَالَ الرَّبُّ: «هَلْ اخْفِي عَنْ ابْرَاهِيمَ مَا انَا فَاعِلُهُ وَابْرَاهِيمُ يَكُونُ امَّةً كَبِيرَةً وَقَوِيَّةً وَيَتَبَارَكُ بِهِ جَمِيعُ امَمِ الارْضِ؟ لانِّي عَرَفْتُهُ لِكَيْ يُوصِيَ بَنِيهِ وَبَيْتَهُ مِنْ بَعْدِهِ انْ يَحْفَظُوا طَرِيقَ الرَّبِّ لِيَعْمَلُوا بِرّا وَعَدْلا لِكَيْ يَاتِيَ الرَّبُّ لابْرَاهِيمَ بِمَا تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ».

"And the LORD said, "Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave, I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to Me; and if not, I will know." Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the LORD. And Abraham came near and said, "Would You also destroy the righteous with the wicked?

وَقَالَ الرَّبُّ: «انَّ صُرَاخَ سَدُومَ وَعَمُورَةَ قَدْ كَثُرَ وَخَطِيَّتُهُمْ قَدْ عَظُمَتْ جِدّا. انْزِلُ وَارَى هَلْ فَعَلُوا بِالتَّمَامِ حَسَبَ صُرَاخِهَا الْاتِي الَيَّ وَالَّا فَاعْلَمُ». وَانْصَرَفَ الرِّجَالُ مِنْ هُنَاكَ وَذَهَبُوا نَحْوَ سَدُومَ وَامَّا ابْرَاهِيمُ فَكَانَ لَمْ يَزَلْ قَائِما امَامَ الرَّبِّ. فَتَقَدَّمَ ابْرَاهِيمُ وَقَالَ: «افَتُهْلِكُ الْبَارَّ مَعَ الاثِيمِ؟

Glory be to the Holy Trinity our God unto the age of all ages, Amen.

Proverbs 9:1-11:

من أمثال سليمان 9: 1 - 11

A reading from the Proverbs of Solomon may his blessings be with us Amen.

من أمثال سليمان النبى بركته المقدسة تكون معنا، آمين.

Wisdom has built her house, She has hewn out her seven pillars; She has slaughtered her meat, She has mixed her wine, She has also furnished her table. She has sent out her maidens, She cries out from the highest places of the city, "Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!" As for him who lacks understanding, she says to him, "Come, eat of my bread and drink of the wine I have mixed.

َلْحِكْمَةُ بَنَتْ بَيْتَهَا. نَحَتَتْ أَعْمِدَتَهَا السَّبْعَةَ. ذَبَحَتْ ذَبْحَهَا. مَزَجَتْ خَمْرَهَا. أَيْضاً رَتَّبَتْ مَائِدَتَهَا. أَرْسَلَتْ جَوَارِيَهَا تُنَادِي عَلَى ظُهُورِ أَعَالِي الْمَدِينَةِ: «مَنْ هُوَ جَاهِلٌ فَلِْيَمِلْ إِلَى هُنَا». وَالنَّاقِصُ الْفَهْمِ قَالَتْ لَهُ: «هَلُمُّوا كُلُوا مِنْ طَعَامِي وَاشْرَبُوا مِنَ الْخَمْرِ الَّتِي مَزَجْتُهَا.

Forsake foolishness and live, and go in the way of understanding. "He who corrects a scoffer gets shame for himself, and he who rebukes a wicked man only harms himself. Do not correct a scoffer, lest he hate you; Rebuke a wise man, and he will love you. Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; Teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.

اُتْرُكُوا الْجَهَالاَتِ فَتَحْيُوا وَسِيرُوا فِي طَرِيقِ الْفَهْمِ. «مَنْ يُوَبِّخُ مُسْتَهْزِئاً يَكْسَبُ لِنَفْسِهِ هَوَاناً وَمَنْ يُنْذِرُ شِرِّيراً يَكْسَبُ عَيْباً. لاَ تُوَبِّخْ مُسْتَهْزِئاً لِئَلاَّ يُبْغِضَكَ. وَبِّخْ حَكِيماً فَيُحِبَّكَ. أَعْطِ حَكِيماً فَيَكُونَ أَوْفَرَ حِكْمَةً. عَلِّمْ صِدِّيقاً فَيَزْدَادَ عِلْماً.

"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by me your days will be multiplied, and years of life will be added to you.

بَدْءُ الْحِكْمَةِ مَخَافَةُ الرَّبِّ وَمَعْرِفَةُ الْقُدُّوسِ فَهْمٌ. لأَنَّهُ بِي تَكْثُرُ أَيَّامُكَ وَتَزْدَادُ لَكَ سِنُو حَيَاةٍ.

Glory be to the Holy Trinity our God unto the age of ages, Amen.

When Israel crossed the Red Sea, they walked through dry land in the midst of the sea, and their enemies went into the sea and the LORD brought upon them the water of the sea. Israel and all the house of Jacob were saved. They danced and sang this song: Let us sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously.

حينما عبر اسرائيل البحر الأحمر، وداست أرجلهم البحر، انطمس اعداءهم فى العميق، وانغمست أرجل المصريين فى الماء قسرا، وأما أرجُل اسرائيل وجميع بيت يعقوب فنجوا من الهلاك. وقالوا هذه التسبحة: فلنسبح الرب لأنه بالمجد قد تمجد.

And it shall come to pass that he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy--everyone who is recorded among the living in Jerusalem. When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion.

فِي ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمِ يَكُونُ غُصْنُ الرَّبِّ بَهَاءً وَمَجْداً وَثَمَرُ الأَرْضِ فَخْراً وَزِينَةً لِلنَّاجِينَ مِنْ إِسْرَائِيلَ. وَيَكُونُ أَنَّ الَّذِي يَبْقَى فِي صِهْيَوْنَ وَالَّذِي يُتْرَكُ فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ يُسَمَّى قُدُّوساً. كُلُّ مَنْ كُتِبَ لِلْحَيَاةِ فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ. إِذَا غَسَلَ السَّيِّدُ قَذَرَ بَنَاتِ صِهْيَوْنَ وَنَقَّى دَمَ أُورُشَلِيمَ مِنْ وَسَطِهَا بِرُوحِ الْقَضَاءِ وَبِرُوحِ الإِحْرَاقِ

اشعياء 55: 1 ـ 56: 1

Also from the book of Ezekiel the prophet may his blessings be with us Amen.

وأيضاً من حزقيال النبى بركته المقدسة تكون معنا، آمين.

Then he brought me back to the door of the temple; and there was water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple toward the east, for the front of the temple faced east; the water was flowing from under the right side of the temple, south of the altar. He brought me out by way of the north gate, and led me around on the outside to the outer gateway that faces east; and there was water, running out on the right side.

ُمَّ أَرْجَعَنِي إِلَى مَدْخَلِ الْبَيْتِ وَإِذَا بِمِيَاهٍ تَخْرُجُ مِنْ تَحْتِ عَتَبَةِ الْبَيْتِ نَحْوَ الْمَشْرِقِ, لأَنَّ وَجْهَ الْبَيْتِ نَحْوَ الْمَشْرِقِ. وَالْمِيَاهُ نَازِلَةٌ مِنْ تَحْتِ جَانِبِ الْبَيْتِ الأَيْمَنِ عَنْ جَنُوبِ الْمَذْبَحِ. ثُمَّ أَخْرَجَنِي مِنْ طَرِيقِ بَابِ الشِّمَالِ وَدَارَ بِي فِي الطَّرِيقِ مِنْ خَارِجٍ إِلَى الْبَابِ الْخَارِجِيِّ مِنَ الطَّرِيقِ الَّذِي يَتَّجِهُ نَحْوَ الْمَشْرِقِ, وَإِذَا بِمِيَاهٍ جَارِيَةٍ مِنَ الْجَانِبِ الأَيْمَنِ.

And when the man went out to the east with the line in his hand, he measured one thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the water came up to my ankles. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through the waters; the water came up to my knees. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through; the water came up to my waist.

وَعِنْدَ خُرُوجِ الرَّجُلِ نَحْوَ الْمَشْرِقِ وَالْخَيْطُ بِيَدِهِ, قَاسَ أَلْفَ ذِرَاعٍ وَعَبَّرَنِي فِي الْمِيَاهِ, وَالْمِيَاهُ إِلَى الْكَعْبَيْنِ. ثُمَّ قَاسَ أَلْفاً وَعَبَّرَنِي فِي الْمِيَاهِ, وَالْمِيَاهُ إِلَى الرُّكْبَتَيْنِ.

Again he measured one thousand, and it was a river that I could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim, a river that could not be crossed. He said to me, "Son of man, have you seen this?" Then he brought me and returned me to the bank of the river. When I returned, there, along the bank of the river, were very many trees on one side and the other. Then he said to me: "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea.

ثُمَّ قَاسَ أَلْفاً وَعَبَّرَنِي, وَالْمِيَاهُ إِلَى الْحَقَوَيْنِ. ثُمَّ قَاسَ أَلْفاً, وَإِذَا بِنَهْرٍ لَمْ أَسْتَطِعْ عُبُورَهُ, لأَنَّ الْمِيَاهَ طَمَتْ, مِيَاهَ سِبَاحَةٍ, نَهْرٌٍ لاَ يُعْبَرُ. وَقَالَ لِي: [أَرَأَيْتَ يَا ابْنَ آدَمَ؟» ثُمَّ ذَهَبَ بِي وَأَرْجَعَنِي إِلَى شَاطِئِ النَّهْرِ. وَعِنْدَ رُجُوعِي إِذَا عَلَى شَاطِئِ النَّهْرِ أَشْجَارٌ كَثِيرَةٌ جِدّاً مِنْ هُنَا وَمِنْ هُنَاكَ. وَقَالَ لِي: [هَذِهِ الْمِيَاهُ خَارِجَةٌ إِلَى الدَّائِرَةِ الشَّرْقِيَّةِ وَتَنْزِلُ إِلَى الْعَرَبَةِ وَتَذْهَبُ إِلَى الْبَحْرِ.

When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes.

إِلَى الْبَحْرِ هِيَ خَارِجَةٌ فَتُشْفَى الْمِيَاهُ. وَيَكُونُ أَنَّ كُلَّ نَفْسٍ حَيَّةٍ تَدِبُّ حَيْثُمَا يَأْتِي النَّهْرَانِ تَحْيَا. وَيَكُونُ السَّمَكُ كَثِيراً جِدّاً لأَنَّ هَذِهِ الْمِيَاهَ تَأْتِي إِلَى هُنَاكَ فَتُشْفَى, وَيَحْيَا كُلُّ مَا يَأْتِي النَّهْرُ إِلَيْهِ.

Glory be to the Holy Trinity our God unto the age of ages, Amen.

And He said, "No, but you did laugh!"
Then the men rose from there and looked toward Sodom, and Abraham went with them to send them on the way.

And the LORD said, "Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing, since Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the LORD, to do righteousness and justice, that the LORD may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.

Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the LORD. And Abraham came near and said, "Would You also destroy the righteous with the wicked?

وَظَهَرَ لَهُ الرَّبُّ عِنْدَ بَلُّوطَاتِ مَمْرَا وَهُوَ جَالِسٌ فِي بَابِ الْخَيْمَةِ وَقْتَ حَرِّ النَّهَارِ فَرَفَعَ عَيْنَيْهِ وَنَظَرَ وَاذَا ثَلاثَةُ رِجَالٍ وَاقِفُونَ لَدَيْهِ. فَلَمَّا نَظَرَ رَكَضَ لِاسْتِقْبَالِهِمْ مِنْ بَابِ الْخَيْمَةِ وَسَجَدَ الَى الارْضِ وَقَالَ: «يَا سَيِّدُ انْ كُنْتُ قَدْ وَجَدْتُ نِعْمَةً فِي عَيْنَيْكَ فَلا تَتَجَاوَزْ عَبْدَكَ.

لِيُؤْخَذْ قَلِيلُ مَاءٍ وَاغْسِلُوا ارْجُلَكُمْ وَاتَّكِئُوا تَحْتَ الشَّجَرَةِ فَاخُذَ كِسْرَةَ خُبْزٍ فَتُسْنِدُونَ قُلُوبَكُمْ ثُمَّ تَجْتَازُونَ لانَّكُمْ قَدْ مَرَرْتُمْ عَلَى عَبْدِكُمْ». فَقَالُوا: «هَكَذَا تَفْعَلُ كَمَا تَكَلَّمْتَ». فَاسْرَعَ ابْرَاهِيمُ الَى الْخَيْمَةِ الَى سَارَةَ وَقَالَ: «اسْرِعِي بِثَلاثِ كَيْلاتٍ دَقِيقا سَمِيذا. اعْجِنِي وَاصْنَعِي خُبْزَ مَلَّةٍ».

ثُمَّ رَكَضَ ابْرَاهِيمُ الَى الْبَقَرِ وَاخَذَ عِجْلا رَخْصا وَجَيِّدا وَاعْطَاهُ لِلْغُلامِ فَاسْرَعَ لِيَعْمَلَهُ. ثُمَّ اخَذَ زُبْدا وَلَبَنا وَالْعِجْلَ الَّذِي عَمِلَهُ وَوَضَعَهَا قُدَّامَهُمْ. وَاذْ كَانَ هُوَ وَاقِفا لَدَيْهِمْ تَحْتَ الشَّجَرَةِ اكَلُوا. وَقَالُوا لَهُ: «ايْنَ سَارَةُ امْرَاتُكَ؟»

فَقَالَ: «هَا هِيَ فِي الْخَيْمَةِ». فَقَالَ: «انِّي ارْجِعُ الَيْكَ نَحْوَ زَمَانِ الْحَيَاةِ وَيَكُونُ لِسَارَةَ امْرَاتِكَ ابْنٌ». وَكَانَتْ سَارَةُ سَامِعَةً فِي بَابِ الْخَيْمَةِ وَهُوَ وَرَاءَهُ - وَكَانَ ابْرَاهِيمُ وَسَارَةُ شَيْخَيْنِ مُتَقَدِّمَيْنِ فِي الايَّامِ وَقَدِ انْقَطَعَ انْ يَكُونَ لِسَارَةَ عَادَةٌ كَالنِّسَاءِ. فَضَحِكَتْ سَارَةُ فِي بَاطِنِهَا قَائِلَةً: «ابَعْدَ فَنَائِي يَكُونُ لِي تَنَعُّمٌ وَسَيِّدِي قَدْ شَاخَ!»

فَقَالَ الرَّبُّ لابْرَاهِيمَ: «لِمَاذَا ضَحِكَتْ سَارَةُ قَائِلَةً: افَبِالْحَقِيقَةِ الِدُ وَانَا قَدْ شِخْتُ؟ هَلْ يَسْتَحِيلُ عَلَى الرَّبِّ شَيْءٌ؟ فِي الْمِيعَادِ ارْجِعُ الَيْكَ نَحْوَ زَمَانِ الْحَيَاةِ وَيَكُونُ لِسَارَةَ ابْنٌ». فَانْكَرَتْ سَارَةُ قَائِلَةً: «لَمْ اضْحَكْ». (لانَّهَا خَافَتْ). فَقَالَ: «لا! بَلْ ضَحِكْتِ». ثُمَّ قَامَ الرِّجَالُ مِنْ هُنَاكَ وَتَطَلَّعُوا نَحْوَ سَدُومَ. وَكَانَ ابْرَاهِيمُ مَاشِيا مَعَهُمْ لِيُشَيِّعَهُمْ.

فَقَالَ الرَّبُّ: «هَلْ اخْفِي عَنْ ابْرَاهِيمَ مَا انَا فَاعِلُهُ وَابْرَاهِيمُ يَكُونُ امَّةً كَبِيرَةً وَقَوِيَّةً وَيَتَبَارَكُ بِهِ جَمِيعُ امَمِ الارْضِ؟ لانِّي عَرَفْتُهُ لِكَيْ يُوصِيَ بَنِيهِ وَبَيْتَهُ مِنْ بَعْدِهِ انْ يَحْفَظُوا طَرِيقَ الرَّبِّ لِيَعْمَلُوا بِرّا وَعَدْلا لِكَيْ يَاتِيَ الرَّبُّ لابْرَاهِيمَ بِمَا تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ».

وَقَالَ الرَّبُّ: «انَّ صُرَاخَ سَدُومَ وَعَمُورَةَ قَدْ كَثُرَ وَخَطِيَّتُهُمْ قَدْ عَظُمَتْ جِدّا. انْزِلُ وَارَى هَلْ فَعَلُوا بِالتَّمَامِ حَسَبَ صُرَاخِهَا الْاتِي الَيَّ وَالَّا فَاعْلَمُ». وَانْصَرَفَ الرِّجَالُ مِنْ هُنَاكَ وَذَهَبُوا نَحْوَ سَدُومَ وَامَّا ابْرَاهِيمُ فَكَانَ لَمْ يَزَلْ قَائِما امَامَ الرَّبِّ. فَتَقَدَّمَ ابْرَاهِيمُ وَقَالَ: «افَتُهْلِكُ الْبَارَّ مَعَ الاثِيمِ؟

مجداً للثالوث القدوس الهنا إلى الأبد وإلى أبد الآبدين أمين.

َلْحِكْمَةُ بَنَتْ بَيْتَهَا. نَحَتَتْ أَعْمِدَتَهَا السَّبْعَةَ. ذَبَحَتْ ذَبْحَهَا. مَزَجَتْ خَمْرَهَا. أَيْضاً رَتَّبَتْ مَائِدَتَهَا. أَرْسَلَتْ جَوَارِيَهَا تُنَادِي عَلَى ظُهُورِ أَعَالِي الْمَدِينَةِ: «مَنْ هُوَ جَاهِلٌ فَلِْيَمِلْ إِلَى هُنَا». وَالنَّاقِصُ الْفَهْمِ قَالَتْ لَهُ: «هَلُمُّوا كُلُوا مِنْ طَعَامِي وَاشْرَبُوا مِنَ الْخَمْرِ الَّتِي مَزَجْتُهَا.

اُتْرُكُوا الْجَهَالاَتِ فَتَحْيُوا وَسِيرُوا فِي طَرِيقِ الْفَهْمِ. «مَنْ يُوَبِّخُ مُسْتَهْزِئاً يَكْسَبُ لِنَفْسِهِ هَوَاناً وَمَنْ يُنْذِرُ شِرِّيراً يَكْسَبُ عَيْباً. لاَ تُوَبِّخْ مُسْتَهْزِئاً لِئَلاَّ يُبْغِضَكَ. وَبِّخْ حَكِيماً فَيُحِبَّكَ. أَعْطِ حَكِيماً فَيَكُونَ أَوْفَرَ حِكْمَةً. عَلِّمْ صِدِّيقاً فَيَزْدَادَ عِلْماً.

بَدْءُ الْحِكْمَةِ مَخَافَةُ الرَّبِّ وَمَعْرِفَةُ الْقُدُّوسِ فَهْمٌ. لأَنَّهُ بِي تَكْثُرُ أَيَّامُكَ وَتَزْدَادُ لَكَ سِنُو حَيَاةٍ.

حينما عبر اسرائيل البحر الأحمر، وداست أرجلهم البحر، انطمس اعداءهم فى العميق، وانغمست أرجل المصريين فى الماء قسرا، وأما أرجُل اسرائيل وجميع بيت يعقوب فنجوا من الهلاك. وقالوا هذه التسبحة: فلنسبح الرب لأنه بالمجد قد تمجد.

ُمَّ أَرْجَعَنِي إِلَى مَدْخَلِ الْبَيْتِ وَإِذَا بِمِيَاهٍ تَخْرُجُ مِنْ تَحْتِ عَتَبَةِ الْبَيْتِ نَحْوَ الْمَشْرِقِ, لأَنَّ وَجْهَ الْبَيْتِ نَحْوَ الْمَشْرِقِ. وَالْمِيَاهُ نَازِلَةٌ مِنْ تَحْتِ جَانِبِ الْبَيْتِ الأَيْمَنِ عَنْ جَنُوبِ الْمَذْبَحِ. ثُمَّ أَخْرَجَنِي مِنْ طَرِيقِ بَابِ الشِّمَالِ وَدَارَ بِي فِي الطَّرِيقِ مِنْ خَارِجٍ إِلَى الْبَابِ الْخَارِجِيِّ مِنَ الطَّرِيقِ الَّذِي يَتَّجِهُ نَحْوَ الْمَشْرِقِ, وَإِذَا بِمِيَاهٍ جَارِيَةٍ مِنَ الْجَانِبِ الأَيْمَنِ.

وَعِنْدَ خُرُوجِ الرَّجُلِ نَحْوَ الْمَشْرِقِ وَالْخَيْطُ بِيَدِهِ, قَاسَ أَلْفَ ذِرَاعٍ وَعَبَّرَنِي فِي الْمِيَاهِ, وَالْمِيَاهُ إِلَى الْكَعْبَيْنِ. ثُمَّ قَاسَ أَلْفاً وَعَبَّرَنِي فِي الْمِيَاهِ, وَالْمِيَاهُ إِلَى الرُّكْبَتَيْنِ.

ثُمَّ قَاسَ أَلْفاً وَعَبَّرَنِي, وَالْمِيَاهُ إِلَى الْحَقَوَيْنِ. ثُمَّ قَاسَ أَلْفاً, وَإِذَا بِنَهْرٍ لَمْ أَسْتَطِعْ عُبُورَهُ, لأَنَّ الْمِيَاهَ طَمَتْ, مِيَاهَ سِبَاحَةٍ, نَهْرٌٍ لاَ يُعْبَرُ. وَقَالَ لِي: [أَرَأَيْتَ يَا ابْنَ آدَمَ؟» ثُمَّ ذَهَبَ بِي وَأَرْجَعَنِي إِلَى شَاطِئِ النَّهْرِ. وَعِنْدَ رُجُوعِي إِذَا عَلَى شَاطِئِ النَّهْرِ أَشْجَارٌ كَثِيرَةٌ جِدّاً مِنْ هُنَا وَمِنْ هُنَاكَ. وَقَالَ لِي: [هَذِهِ الْمِيَاهُ خَارِجَةٌ إِلَى الدَّائِرَةِ الشَّرْقِيَّةِ وَتَنْزِلُ إِلَى الْعَرَبَةِ وَتَذْهَبُ إِلَى الْبَحْرِ.

إِلَى الْبَحْرِ هِيَ خَارِجَةٌ فَتُشْفَى الْمِيَاهُ. وَيَكُونُ أَنَّ كُلَّ نَفْسٍ حَيَّةٍ تَدِبُّ حَيْثُمَا يَأْتِي النَّهْرَانِ تَحْيَا. وَيَكُونُ السَّمَكُ كَثِيراً جِدّاً لأَنَّ هَذِهِ الْمِيَاهَ تَأْتِي إِلَى هُنَاكَ فَتُشْفَى, وَيَحْيَا كُلُّ مَا يَأْتِي النَّهْرُ إِلَيْهِ.
