الرسالة

2 تيموثاوس 4: 5 – 8


يا وَلَدي تيمُوثاوُسَ، تَيَقَّظْ في كُلِّ شَيء. إِحتَمِلِ ٱلمَشَقَّاتِ، إِعمَلْ عَمَلَ ٱلمُبَشِّرِ، أَوفِ خِدمَتَكَ. لِأَنّي ٱلآنَ أُراقُ سَكيبًا، وَوَقتُ ٱنحِلالي قَد حَضَر. قَد جاهَدتُ ٱلجِهادَ ٱلحَسَنَ، أَتمَمْتُ سَعيِي، حَفِظتُ ٱلإيمانَ، إِنَّما يَبقى إِكليلُ ٱلبِرِّ ٱلمَحفوظُ لي، ٱلَّذي سَيَجزِيني بِهِ في ذَلِكَ ٱليَومِ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلدَّيانُ ٱلعادِلُ، لا إيَّايَ فَقَط، بَل جَميعَ ٱلَّذينَ يُحِبُّونَ ظُهورَهُ أَيضًا


الإنجيل

مرقس 1: 1 – 8


بَدءُ إِنجيلِ يَسوعَ ٱلمَسيحِ ٱبنِ ٱللهِ، كَما هُوَ مَكتوبٌ في ٱلأَنبِياء: ’هاءَنَذا أُرسِلُ مَلاكي أَمامَ وَجهِكَ يُهَيِّىءُ طَريقَكَ قُدَّامَكَ. صَوتُ صارِخٍ في ٱلبَرِّيَّةِ أَعِدُّوا طَريقَ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَٱجعَلوا سُبُلَهُ قَويمَة‘. كانَ يوحَنَّا يُعَمِّدُ في ٱلبَرِّيَّةِ وَيَكرِزُ بِمَعمودِيَّةِ ٱلتَّوبَةِ لِغُفرانِ ٱلخَطايا. وَكانَ يَخرُجُ إِلَيهِ كُلُّ أَهلِ بِلادِ ٱليَهودِيَّةِ وَجَميعُ سُكَّانِ أورَشَليمَ، فَيَعتَمِدونَ مِنهُ جَميعُهُم في نَهرِ ٱلأُردُنِّ مَعتَرِفينَ بِخَطاياهُم. وَكانَ لِباسُ يوحَنَّا مِن وَبَرِ ٱلإِبِلِ، وَعَلى حَقوَيهِ مِنطَقَةٌ مِن جِلدٍ، وَكانَ طَعامُهُ ٱلجَرادَ وَعَسَلَ ٱلبَرّ. وَكانَ يَكرِزُ قائِلًا: ’إِنَّهُ يَأتي بَعدي مَن هُوَ أَقوى مِنّي، وَأَنا لَستُ بِأَهلٍ أَن أَنحَنِيَ وَأَحُلَّ سَيرَ حِذائِهِ. أَنا عَمَّدتُكُم بِٱلماءِ، وَأَمَّا هُوَ فَسَيُعَمِّدُكُم بِٱلرُّوحِ ٱلقُدُس‘


Lettre

2 Timothée 4: 5 – 8


Mais toi, sois sobre en toutes choses, supporte les souffrances, fais l’œuvre d’un évangéliste, remplis bien ton ministère. Car pour moi, je sers déjà de libation, et le moment de mon départ approche. J’ai combattu le bon combat, j’ai achevé la course, j’ai gardé la foi. Désormais, la couronne de justice m’est réservée; le Seigneur, le juste Juge, me la donnera dans ce Jour-là, et non seulement à moi, mais encore à tous ceux qui auront aimé Son avènement


Évangile

Marc 1: 1 – 8


Commencement de l’Évangile de Jésus-Christ, Fils de Dieu. Selon ce qui est écrit dans Esaïe, le prophète: ‘Voici, J’envoie devant Toi Mon messager, qui préparera Ton chemin; C’est la voix de celui qui crie dans le désert: ‘Préparez le chemin du Seigneur, aplanissez Ses sentiers.’ Jean parut, baptisant dans le désert, et prêchant le baptême de repentance, pour le pardon des péchés. Tout le pays de Judée et tous les habitants de Jérusalem se rendaient auprès de lui; et, confessant leurs péchés, ils se faisaient baptiser par lui dans les eaux du Jourdain. Jean avait un vêtement de poils de chameau, et une ceinture de cuir autour des reins. Il se nourrissait de sauterelles et de miel sauvage. Il prêchait, disant: ‘Il vient après moi Celui Qui est plus puissant que moi, et je ne suis pas digne de délier, en me baissant, la courroie de Ses souliers. Moi, je vous ai baptisés d’eau; Lui, Il vous baptisera du Saint-Esprit’


Letter

2 Timothy 4: 5 – 8


But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race,

I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing


Gospel

Mark 1: 1 – 8


The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. As it is written in the Prophets: ‘Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, who will prepare Your way before You. The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord; Make His paths straight.’ John came baptizing in the wilderness and preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. Then all the land of Judea, and those from Jerusalem, went out to him and were all baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing their sins. Now John was clothed with camel’s hair and with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. And he preached, saying, ‘There comes One after me Who is mightier than I, Whose sandal strap I am not worthy to stoop down and loose. I indeed baptized you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit’


ደብዳቤ ወደ

2 ወደ ጢሞቴዎስ 4: 5 – 8


አንተ ግን ነገርን ሁሉ በልክ አድርግ፥ መከራን ተቀበል፥ የወንጌል ሰባኪነትን ሥራ አድርግ፥ አገልግሎትህን ፈጽም። በመሥዋዕት እንደሚደረግ፥ የእኔ ሕይወት ይሠዋልና፥ የምሄድበትም ጊዜ ደርሶአል። መልካሙን ገድል ተጋድዬአለሁ፥ ሩጫውን ጨርሼአለሁ፥ ሃይማኖትን ጠብቄአለሁ፤ ወደ ፊት የጽድቅ አክሊል ተዘጋጅቶልኛል፥ ይህንም ጻድቅ ፈራጅ የሆነው ጌታ ያን ቀን ለእኔ ያስረክባል፥ ደግሞም መገለጡን ለሚወዱት ሁሉ እንጂ ለእኔ ብቻ አይደለም።


ወንጌል

የማርቆስ ወንጌል 1: 1 – 8


የእግዚአብሔር ልጅ የኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ወንጌል መጀመሪያ። እነሆ፥ መንገድህን የሚጠርግ መልክተኛዬን በፊትህ እልካለሁ የጌታን መንገድ አዘጋጁ ጥርጊያውንም አቅኑ እያለ በምድረ በዳ የሚጮኽ ሰው ድምፅ ተብሎ በነቢዩ በኢሳይያስ እንደ ተጻፈ፥ ዮሐንስ በምድረ በዳ እያጠመቀ የንስሐንም ጥምቀት ለኃጢአት ስርየት እየሰበከ መጣ። የይሁዳም አገር ሁሉ የኢየሩሳሌምም ሰዎች ሁሉ ወደ እርሱ ይወጡ ነበር፥ ኃጢአታቸውንም እየተናዘዙ በዮርዳኖስ ወንዝ ከእርሱ ይጠመቁ ነበር። ዮሐንስም የግመል ጠጉር ለብሶ በወገቡ ጠፍር ይታጠቅ አንበጣና የበረሀ ማርም ይበላ ነበር። ተጎንብሼ የጫማውን ጠፍር መፍታት የማይገባኝ ከእኔ የሚበረታ በኋላዬ ይመጣል። እኔ በውኃ አጠመቅኋችሁ እርሱ ግን በመንፈስ ቅዱስ ያጠምቃችኋል እያለ ይሰብክ ነበር።
