الرّسالة

2 كورنثس 6: 1 – 10


يا إِخوَةُ، إِذ نَحنُ مُعاوِنونَ، نُحَرِّضُكُم أَن لا يَكونَ قَبولُكُم نِعمَةَ ٱللهِ باطِلًا. لِأَنَّهُ يَقول: ’إِنِّي ٱستَجَبْتُ لَكَ في وَقتٍ مَقبولٍ، وَأَعَنتُكَ في يَومِ خَلاص‘. فَهُوَذا ٱلآنَ وَقتٌ مَقبولٌ، هُوَذا ٱلآنَ يَومُ خَلاص. وَلَسنا نَأتي بِمَعثَرَةٍ في شَيءٍ، لِئَلَّا يَلحَقَ خِدمَتنا عَيب. بَل نُظهِرُ أَنفُسَنا كَخُدَّامِ ٱللهِ في كُلِّ شَيء: في ٱلصَّبرِ ٱلكَثيرِ وَٱلمَضايِقِ، وَٱلضَّروراتِ وَٱلمَشَقَّاتِ، وَٱلجَلَداتِ وَٱلسُّجُونِ وَٱلإِضطِراباتِ، وَٱلأَتعابِ وَٱلأَسهارِ وَٱلأَصوامِ، وَٱلطَّهارَةِ وَٱلمَعرِفَةِ، وَطولِ ٱلأنَاةِ وَٱلرِّفقِ وَٱلرُّوحِ ٱلقُدُسِ، وَٱلمَحَبَّةِ بِلا رِئاءِ، وَكَلِمَةِ ٱلحَقِّ، وَقُوَّةِ ٱللهِ بِأَسلِحَةِ ٱلبِرِّ عَنِ ٱليَمينِ وَعَنِ ٱليَسار. بِٱلمَجدِ وَٱلهَوَانِ، بِسوءِ ٱلصِّيتِ وَحُسنِهِ، كَأَنَّا مُضِلُّونَ وَنَحنُ صادِقونَ، كَأَنَّا مَجهولونَ وَنَحنُ مَعروفونَ، كَأَنَّا مائِتونَ وَها إِنَّنا أَحياءُ، كَأَنَّا مُؤَدَّبونَ وَلا نُقتَلُ، كَأَنَّا حِزانٌ وَنَحنُ دائِمًا فَرِحونَ، كَأَنَّا فُقَراءُ وَنَحنُ نُغْنِي كَثيرينَ، كَأَنَّا لا شَيءَ لَنا وَنَحنُ نَملِكُ كُلَّ شَيء


الإنجيل

لوقا 6: 31 – 36


قالَ ٱلرَّبّ: ’كَما تُريدونَ أَن يَفعَلَ ٱلنَّاسُ بِكُم، كَذَلِكَ ٱفعَلوا أَنتُم أَيضًا بِهِم. فَإِنَّكُم إِنْ أَحبَبْتُمُ ٱلَّذينَ يُحِبُّونَكُم فَأَيُّ فَضلٍ لَكُم؟ فَإِنَّ ٱلخَطَأَةَ أَيضًا يُحِبُّونَ ٱلَّذينَ يُحِبُّونَهُم. وَإِن أَحسَنْتُم إِلى ٱلَّذينَ يُحسِنُونَ إِلَيكُم، فَأَيُّ فَضلٍ لَكُم؟ فَإِنَّ ٱلخَطَأَةَ أَيضًا يَفعَلونَ ذَلِكَ بعَينِهِ. وَإِن أَقرَضتُمُ ٱلَّذينَ تَرجُونَ أَنْ تَستَوفُوا مِنهُم، فَأَيُّ فَضْلٍ لَكُم؟ فَإِنَّ ٱلخَطَأَةَ أَيضًا يُقرِضونَ ٱلخَطَأَةَ لِكَي يَستَوفُوا ٱلمِثْل. وَلَكِن أَحِبُّوا أَعداءَكُم، وَأَحسِنوا وَأَقرِضُوا غَيرَ مُؤَمِّلينَ شَيئًا، فَيَكونَ أَجرُكُم كَبيرًا وَتَكونُوا بَني ٱلعَليِّ، لِأَنَّهُ مُنعِمٌ عَلى غَيرِ ٱلشَّاكِرِينَ وَٱلأَشرار. فَكونوا إِذَن رُحَماءَ كَما أَنَّ أَباكُم رَحِيم‘


Lettre

2 Corinthiens 6: 1 – 10 


En tant que coopérateurs de Dieu, nous vous exhortons encore à ne pas laisser sans effet la grâce reçue de Lui. Car Il dit dans l’Écriture: ‘Au moment favorable Je t’ai exaucé, au jour du salut Je t’ai secouru.’ Le voici maintenant le moment favorable, le voici maintenant le jour du salut. Pour que notre ministère ne soit pas exposé à la critique, nous veillons à ne choquer personne en rien. Au contraire, en tout, nous nous recommandons nous-mêmes comme des ministres de Dieu: par beaucoup d’endurance, dans les détresses, les difficultés, les angoisses, les coups, la prison, les émeutes, les fatigues, le manque de sommeil et de nourriture, par la chasteté, la connaissance, la patience et la bonté, la sainteté de l’Ésprit et la sincérité de l’amour, par une Parole de vérité, par une puissance qui vient de Dieu; nous nous présentons avec les armes de la justice pour l’attaque et la défense, dans la gloire et le mépris, dans la mauvaise et la bonne réputation. On nous traite d’imposteurs, et nous disons la vérité; on nous prend pour des inconnus, et nous sommes très connus; on nous croit mourants, et nous sommes bien vivants; on nous punit, et nous ne sommes pas mis à mort; on nous croit tristes, et nous sommes toujours joyeux; pauvres, et nous faisons tant de riches; démunis de tout, et nous possédons tout


Évangile

Luc 6: 31 – 36


‘Ce que vous voulez que les autres fassent pour vous, faites-le aussi pour eux. Si vous aimez ceux qui vous aiment, quelle reconnaissance méritez-vous? Même les pécheurs aiment ceux qui les aiment. Si vous faites du bien à ceux qui vous en font, quelle reconnaissance méritez-vous? Même les pécheurs en font autant. Si vous prêtez à ceux dont vous espérez recevoir en retour, quelle reconnaissance méritez-vous? Même les pécheurs prêtent aux pécheurs pour qu’on leur rende l’équivalent. Au contraire, aimez vos ennemis, faites du bien et prêtez sans rien espérer en retour. Alors votre récompense sera grande, et vous serez les fils du Très-Haut, car Lui, Il est bon pour les ingrats et les méchants. Soyez miséricordieux comme votre Père est miséricordieux’


 Letter

2 Corinthians 6: 1 – 10


We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For He says: ‘In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the day of salvation  I have helped you.’ Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. We give no offense in anything, that our ministry may not be blamed. But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God: in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses, in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in fastings; by purity, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love, by the Word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness
on
the right hand and on the left, by honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true; as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold we live; as chastened, and yet not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things 


Gospel

Luke 6: 31 – 36


‘And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise. But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful’

2 ወደ ቆሮንቶስ ሰዎች 6: 1 – 10


አብረንም እየሠራን የእግዚአብሔርን ጸጋ በከንቱ እንዳትቀበሉ ደግሞ እንለምናለን፤ በተወደደ ሰዓት ሰማሁህ በመዳንም ቀን ረዳሁህ ይላልና፤ እነሆ፥ የተወደደው ሰዓት አሁን ነው፤ እነሆ፥ የመዳን ቀን አሁን ነው። አገልግሎታችንም እንዳይነቀፍ በአንዳች ነገር ማሰናከያ ከቶ አንሰጥም። ነገር ግን በሁሉ እንደ እግዚአብሔር አገልጋዮች ራሳችንን እናማጥናለን፤ በብዙ መጽናት፥ በመከራ፥ በችግር፥ በጭንቀት፥ በመገረፍ፥ በወኅኒ፥ በሁከት፥ በድካም፥ እንቅልፍ በማጣት፥ በመጦም፥ በንጽህና፥ በእውቀት፥ በትዕግሥት፥ በቸርነት፥ በመንፈስ ቅዱስ፥ ግብዝነት በሌለው ፍቅር፥ በእውነት ቃል፥ በእግዚአብሔር ኃይል፥ ለቀኝና ለግራ በሚሆን በጽድቅ የጦር ዕቃ፥ በክብርና በውርደት፥ በክፉ ወሬና በመልካም ወሬ ራሳችንን እናማጥናለን፤ አሳቾች ስንባል እውነተኞች ነን፤ ያልታወቁ ስንባል የታወቅን ነን፤ የምንሞት ስንመስል እነሆ ሕያዋን ነን፤ የተቀጣን ስንሆን አንገደልም፤ ኀዘንተኞች ስንሆን ዘወትር ደስ ይለናል፤ ድሆች ስንሆን ብዙዎችን ባለ ጠጎች እናደርጋለን፤ አንዳች የሌለን ስንሆን ሁሉ የእኛ ነው።


ወንጌል

የሉቃስ ወንጌል 6: 31 – 36


ሰዎችም ሊያደርጉላችሁ እንደምትወዱ እናንተ ደግሞ እንዲሁ አድርጉላቸው። የሚወዱአችሁንማ ብትወዱ፥ ምን ምስጋና አላችሁ? ኃጢአተኞች ደግሞ የሚወዱአቸውን ይወዳሉና። መልካምም ለሚያደርጉላችሁ መልካም ብታደርጉ፥ ምን ምስጋና አላችሁ? ኃጢአተኞች ደግሞ ያን ያደርጋሉና። እንድትወስዱባቸው ተስፋ ለምታደርጉአቸው ብታበድሩ፥ ምን ምስጋና አላችሁ? ኃጢአተኞች ደግሞ በትክክል እንዲቀበሉ ለኃጢአተኞች ያበድራሉ። ነገር ግን ጠላቶቻችሁን ውደዱ፤ መልካም አድርጉ፤ ምንም ተስፋ ሳታደርጉም አበድሩ፥ ዋጋችሁም ታላቅ ይሆናል፥ የልዑልም ልጆች ትሆናላችሁ፥ እርሱ ለማያመሰግኑ ለክፉዎችም ቸር ነውና። አባታችሁ ርኅሩኅ እንደ ሆነ ርኅሩኆች ሁኑ።
