الرّسالة

1 تسالونيقي 5: 1 – 11


يا إخوَتِي، أَمَّا الأَزْمِنَةُ والأَوقَات، أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَة، فلا حَاجَةَ بِكُم أَنْ يُكْتَبَ إِلَيْكُم في شَأْنِهَا؛ لأَنَّكُم تَعْلَمُونَ جَيِّدًا أَنَّ يَوْمَ الرَّبِّ يأْتي كَالسَّارِقِ لَيْلًا. فحِينَ يَقُولُون: ’سَلامٌ وأَمْنٌ!‘ حِينَئِذٍ يَدْهَمُهُمُ الهَلاكُ دَهْمَ الْمَخَاضِ لِلحُبْلى، ولا يُفْلِتُون. أَمَّا أَنْتُم، أَيُّها الإِخْوَة، فَلَسْتُم في ظُلْمَةٍ لِيُفَاجِئَكُم ذلِكَ اليَومُ كالسَّارِق. فأَنْتُم كُلُّكُم أَبْنَاءُ النُّور، وأَبْنَاءُ النَّهَار؛ ولَسْنَا أَبْنَاءَ اللَّيلِ ولا أَبْنَاءَ الظُّلْمَة. إِذًا فلا نَنَمْ كَسَائِر النَّاس، بَلْ لِنَسْهَرْ وَنَصْحُ؛ لأَنَّ الَّذِينَ يَنَامُونَ فَفي اللَّيلِ يَنَامُون، والَّذِينَ يَسْكَرُونَ فَفي اللَّيلِ يَسْكَرُون. أَمَّا نَحْنُ أَبْنَاءَ النَّهَار، فَلْنَصْحُ لابِسِينَ دِرْعَ الإِيْمَانِ والمَحَبَّة، ووَاضِعِينَ خُوذَةَ رَجَاءِ الخَلاص. فإِنَّ اللهَ لَمْ يَجْعَلْنَا لِلغَضَب، بَلْ لإِحْرَازِ الخَلاصِ بَرَبِّنَا يَسُوعَ المَسِيح، الَّذي مَاتَ مِنْ أَجْلِنَا، لِنَحْيَا مَعَهُ سَاهِرِينَ كُنَّا أَمْ نِائِمِين. فَلِذلِكَ شَجِّعُوا بَعضُكُم بَعْضًا، وَلْيَبْنِ الوَاحِدُ الآخَر، كَمَا أَنْتُم فَاعِلُون


الإنجيل

متّى 24: 45 – 51


قالَ الرَّبُّ يَسوع: ’مَنْ هُوَ العَبْدُ الأَمِينُ الحَكِيْمُ الَّذي أَقَامَهُ سَيِّدُهُ عَلى أَهْلِ بَيتِهِ، لِيُعْطِيَهُمُ الطَّعَامَ في حِينِهِ؟ طُوبَى لِذلِكَ العَبْدِ الَّذي يَجِيءُ سَيِّدُهُ فَيَجِدُهُ فَاعِلًا هكَذَا! أَلحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُم: إِنَّهُ يُقِيْمُهُ عَلى جَمِيعِ مُمْتَلَكَاتِهِ. ولكِنْ إِنْ قَالَ ذلِكَ العَبْدُ الشِّرِّيرُ في قَلْبِهِ: ’سَيَتَأَخَّرُ سَيِّدِي!‘ وبَدَأَ يَضْرِبُ رِفَاقَهُ، ويَأْكُلُ ويَشْرَبُ مَعَ السِّكِّيرِين، يَجِيءُ سَيِّدُ ذلِكَ العَبْدِ في يَومٍ لا يَنْتَظِرُهُ، وفي سَاعَةٍ لا يَعْرِفُهَا، فَيَفْصِلُهُ، ويَجْعَلُ نَصِيبَهُ مَعَ المُرَائِين. هُنَاكَ يَكُونُ البُكَاءُ وصَرِيفُ الأَسْنَان‘


Lettre

1 Thessaloniciens 5: 1 – 11


Pour ce qui est des temps et des moments de la venue du Seigneur, vous n’avez pas besoin, frères, que je vous en parle dans ma lettre. Vous savez très bien que le Jour du Seigneur vient comme un voleur dans la nuit. Quand les gens diront: ‘Quelle paix! Quelle tranquillité!’, c’est alors que, tout à coup, la catastrophe s’abattra sur eux, comme les douleurs sur la femme enceinte: ils ne pourront pas y échapper. Mais vous, frères, comme vous n’êtes pas dans les ténèbres, ce Jour ne vous surprendra pas comme un voleur. En effet, vous êtes tous des fils de la lumière, des fils du jour; nous n’appartenons pas à la nuit et aux ténèbres. Alors, ne restons pas endormis comme les autres, mais soyons vigilants et restons sobres. Les gens qui dorment, c’est la nuit qu’ils dorment; ceux qui s’enivrent, c’est la nuit qu’ils sont ivres, mais nous qui sommes du jour, restons sobres; mettons la cuirasse de la foi et de l’amour et le casque de l’espérance du salut. Car Dieu ne nous a pas destinés à subir la colère, mais à entrer en possession du salut par notre Seigneur Jésus Christ, mort pour nous afin de nous faire vivre avec Lui, que nous soyons en train de veiller ou de dormir. Ainsi, réconfortez-vous mutuellement et édifiez-vous l’un l’autre, comme vous le faites déjà


Évangile

Matthieu 24: 45 – 51


‘Que dire du serviteur fidèle et sensé à qui le maître a confié la charge des gens de sa maison, pour leur donner la nourriture en temps voulu? Heureux ce serviteur que son maître, en arrivant, trouvera en train d’agir ainsi! Amen, Je vous le déclare: il l’établira sur tous ses biens. Mais si ce mauvais serviteur se dit en lui-même: ‘Mon maître tarde’, et s’il se met à frapper ses compagnons, s’il mange et boit avec les ivrognes, alors quand le maître viendra, le jour où son serviteur ne s’y attend pas et à l’heure qu’il ne connaît pas, il l’écartera et lui fera partager le sort des hypocrites; là, il y aura des pleurs et des grincements de dents’ 


Letter

1 Thessalonians 5: 1 – 11


But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the Day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, ‘Peace and safety!’ then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing


Gospel

Matthew 24: 45 – 51


‘Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods. But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth’

1 ወደ ተሰሎንቄ ሰዎች 5: 1 – 11


ወንድሞች ሆይ፥ ስለ ዘመናትና ስለ ወራት ምንም እንዲጻፍላችሁ አያስፈልጋችሁም፤ የጌታ ቀን፥ ሌባ በሌሊት እንደሚመጣ፥ እንዲሁ ይመጣ ዘንድ ራሳችሁ አጥብቃችሁ አውቃችኋልና። ሰላምና ደኅንነት ነው ሲሉ ያን ጊዜ ምጥ እርጕዝን እንደሚይዛት ጥፋት በድንገት ይመጣባቸዋል ከቶም አያመልጡም። እናንተ ግን፥ ወንድሞች ሆይ፥ ቀኑ እንደ ሌባ ይደርስባችሁ ዘንድ በጨለማ አይደላችሁም፥ ሁላችሁ የብርሃን ልጆች የቀንም ልጆች ናችሁና። እኛ ከሌሊት ወይም ከጨለማ አይደለንም፤ እንግዲያስ እንንቃ በመጠንም እንኑር እንጂ እንደ ሌሎች አናንቀላፋ። የሚያንቀላፉ በሌሊት ያንቀላፋሉና፥ የሚሰክሩም በሌሊት ይሰክራሉና፤ እኛ ግን ከቀን ስለ ሆንን፥ የእምነትንና የፍቅርን ጥሩር የመዳንንም ተስፋ እንደ ራስ ቁር እየለበስን በመጠን እንኑር፤ እግዚአብሔር ለቍጣ አልመረጠንምና፥ በጌታችን በኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ መዳንን ለማግኘት ነው እንጂ። የምንነቃም ብንሆን፥ የምናንቀላፋም ብንሆን፥ ከእርሱ ጋር አብረን በሕይወት እንኖር ዘንድ ስለ እኛ ሞተ። ስለዚህ እናንተ ደግሞ እንደምታደርጉ፥ እርስ በርሳችሁ ተመካከሩ አንዱም አንዱም ሌላውን ያንጸው።


ወንጌል  

የማቴዎስ ወንጌል 24: 45 – 51


እንኪያስ ምግባቸውን በጊዜው ይሰጣቸው ዘንድ ጌታው በቤተ ሰዎች ላይ የሾመው ታማኝና ልባም ባሪያ ማን ነው? ጌታው መጥቶ እንዲህ ሲያደርግ የሚያገኘው ያ ባሪያ ብፁዕ ነው፤ እውነት እላችኋለሁ፥ ባለው ሁሉ ላይ ይሾመዋል። ያ ክፉ ባሪያ ግን። ጌታዬ እስኪመጣ ይዘገያል ብሎ በልቡ ቢያስብ፥ ባልንጀሮቹን ባሮች ሊመታ ቢጀምር ከሰካሮችም ጋር ቢበላና ቢጠጣ፥ የዚያ ባሪያ ጌታ ባልጠበቃት ቀን ባላወቃትም ሰዓት ይመጣል፥ ከሁለትም ይሰነጥቀዋል፥ እድሉንም ከግብዞች ጋር ያደርግበታል፤ በዚያ ልቅሶና ጥርስ ማፋጨት ይሆናል።
