Third of the Latter Sundays of Easter

1st. Reading: James 5: 7-13

7 Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. 

8 You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. 

9 Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door! 

10 My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering and patience. 

11 Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord–that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful. 

12 But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath. But let your “Yes,” be “Yes,” and your “No,” “No,” lest you fall into judgment. 

13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms.

2nd. Reading: 2 Corinthians 1: 15-23

15 And in this confidence I intended to come to you before, that you might have a second benefit– 

16 to pass by way of you to Macedonia, to come again from Macedonia to you, and be helped by you on my way to Judea.

17 Therefore, when I was planning this, did I do it lightly? Or the things I plan, do I plan according to the flesh, that with me there should be Yes, Yes, and No, No? 

18 But as God is faithful, our word to you was not Yes and No. 

19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us–by me, Silvanus, and Timothy–was not Yes and No, but in Him was Yes. 

20 For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. 

21 Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, 

22 who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee. 

23 Moreover I call God as witness against my soul, that to spare you I came no more to Corinth.

Gospel: Mark 12: 38-44

38 Then He said to them in His teaching, “Beware of the scribes, who desire to go around in long robes, love greetings in the marketplaces, 

39 the best seats in the synagogues, and the best places at feasts, 

40 who devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. These will receive greater condemnation.” 

41Now Jesus sat opposite the treasury and saw how the people put money into the treasury. And many who were rich put in much. 

42Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites, which make a quadrans. 

43 So He called His disciples to Himself and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury; 

44 for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood.”

الأحد الثالث من الآحاد الأخيرة للقيامة

 القرائة الأولى : يعقوب 5 : 7 – 13

7 فَتَأَنَّوْا أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَةُ إِلَى مَجِيءِ الرَّبِّ. هُوَذَا الْفَلاَحُ يَنْتَظِرُ ثَمَرَ الأَرْضِ الثَّمِينَ، مُتَأَنِّيًا عَلَيْهِ حَتَّى يَنَالَ الْمَطَرَ الْمُبَكِّرَ وَالْمُتَأَخِّرَ.

8 فَتَأَنَّوْا أَنْتُمْ وَثَبِّتُوا قُلُوبَكُمْ، لأَنَّ مَجِيءَ الرَّبِّ قَدِ اقْتَرَبَ.

9 لاَ يَئِنَّ بَعْضُكُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَةُ لِئَلاَّ تُدَانُوا. هُوَذَا الدَّيَّانُ وَاقِفٌ قُدَّامَ الْبَابِ.

10 خُذُوا يَا إِخْوَتِي مِثَالاً لاحْتِمَالِ الْمَشَقَّاتِ وَالأَنَاةِ: الأَنْبِيَاءَ الَّذِينَ تَكَلَّمُوا بِاسْمِ الرَّبِّ.

11 هَا نَحْنُ نُطَوِّبُ الصَّابِرِينَ. قَدْ سَمِعْتُمْ بِصَبْرِ أَيُّوبَ وَرَأَيْتُمْ عَاقِبَةَ الرَّبِّ. لأَنَّ الرَّبَّ كَثِيرُ الرَّحْمَةِ وَرَؤُوفٌ.

12 وَلكِنْ قَبْلَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ يَا إِخْوَتِي، لاَ تَحْلِفُوا، لاَ بِالسَّمَاءِ، وَلاَ بِالأَرْضِ، وَلاَ بِقَسَمٍ آخَرَ. بَلْ لِتَكُنْ نَعَمْكُمْ نَعَمْ، وَلاَكُمْ لاَ، لِئَلاَّ تَقَعُوا تَحْتَ دَيْنُونَةٍ.

13 أَعَلَى أَحَدٍ بَيْنَكُمْ مَشَقَّاتٌ؟ فَلْيُصَلِّ. أَمَسْرُورٌ أَحَدٌ؟ فَلْيُرَتِّلْ.

 القرائة الثانية : 2 كورنثوس 1 : 15 –  23

15 وَبِهذِهِ الثِّقَةِ كُنْتُ أَشَاءُ أَنْ آتِيَ إِلَيْكُمْ أَوَّلاً، لِتَكُونَ لَكُمْ نِعْمَةٌ ثَانِيَةٌ.

16 وَأَنْ أَمُرَّ بِكُمْ إِلَى مَكِدُونِيَّةَ، وَآتِيَ أَيْضًا مِنْ مَكِدُونِيَّةَ إِلَيْكُمْ، وَأُشَيَّعَ مِنْكُمْ إِلَى الْيَهُودِيَّةِ.

17 فَإِذْ أَنَا عَازِمٌ عَلَى هذَا، أَلَعَلِّي اسْتَعْمَلْتُ الْخِفَّةَ؟ أَمْ أَعْزِمُ عَلَى مَا أَعْزِمُ بِحَسَبِ الْجَسَدِ، كَيْ يَكُونَ عِنْدِي نَعَمْ نَعَمْ وَلاَ لاَ؟

18 لكِنْ أَمِينٌ هُوَ اللهُ إِنَّ كَلاَمَنَا لَكُمْ لَمْ يَكُنْ نَعَمْ وَلاَ.

19 لأَنَّ ابْنَ اللهِ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحَ، الَّذِي كُرِزَ بِهِ بَيْنَكُمْ بِوَاسِطَتِنَا، أَنَا وَسِلْوَانُسَ وَتِيمُوثَاوُسَ، لَمْ يَكُنْ نَعَمْ وَلاَ، بَلْ قَدْ كَانَ فِيهِ نَعَمْ.

20 لأَنْ مَهْمَا كَانَتْ مَوَاعِيدُ اللهِ فَهُوَ فِيهِ «النَّعَمْ» وَفِيهِ «الآمِينُ»، لِمَجْدِ اللهِ، بِوَاسِطَتِنَا.

21 وَلكِنَّ الَّذِي يُثَبِّتُنَا مَعَكُمْ فِي الْمَسِيحِ، وَقَدْ مَسَحَنَا، هُوَ اللهُ

22 الَّذِي خَتَمَنَا أَيْضًا، وَأَعْطَى عَرْبُونَ الرُّوحِ فِي قُلُوبِنَا.

23 وَلكِنِّي أَسْتَشْهِدُ اللهَ عَلَى نَفْسِي، أَنِّي إِشْفَاقًا عَلَيْكُمْ لَمْ آتِ إِلَى كُورِنْثُوسَ.

إنجيل مرقس 12 : 38 – 44

38 وَقَالَ لَهُمْ فِي تَعْلِيمِهِ: «تَحَرَّزُوا مِنَ الْكَتَبَةِ، الَّذِينَ يَرْغَبُونَ الْمَشْيَ بِالطَّيَالِسَةِ، وَالتَّحِيَّاتِ فِي الأَسْوَاقِ،

39 وَالْمَجَالِسَ الأُولَى فِي الْمَجَامِعِ، وَالْمُتَّكَآتِ الأُولَى فِي الْوَلاَئِمِ.

40 الَّذِينَ يَأْكُلُونَ بُيُوتَ الأَرَامِلِ، وَلِعِلَّةٍ يُطِيلُونَ الصَّلَوَاتِ. هؤُلاَءِ يَأْخُذُونَ دَيْنُونَةً أَعْظَمَ».

41 وَجَلَسَ يَسُوعُ تُجَاهَ الْخِزَانَةِ، وَنَظَرَ كَيْفَ يُلْقِي الْجَمْعُ نُحَاسًا فِي الْخِزَانَةِ. وَكَانَ أَغْنِيَاءُ كَثِيرُونَ يُلْقُونَ كَثِيرًا.

42 فَجَاءَتْ أَرْمَلَةٌ فَقِيرَةٌ وَأَلْقَتْ فَلْسَيْنِ، قِيمَتُهُمَا رُبْعٌ.

43 فَدَعَا تَلاَمِيذَهُ وَقَالَ لَهُمُ: «الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: إِنَّ هذِهِ الأَرْمَلَةَ الْفَقِيرَةَ قَدْ أَلْقَتْ أَكْثَرَ مِنْ جَمِيعِ الَّذِينَ أَلْقَوْا فِي الْخِزَانَةِ،

44 لأَنَّ الْجَمِيعَ مِنْ فَضْلَتِهِمْ أَلْقَوْا. وَأَمَّا هذِهِ فَمِنْ إِعْوَازِهَا أَلْقَتْ كُلَّ مَا عِنْدَهَا، كُلَّ مَعِيشَتِهَا».
