وعِنْدَمَا تُصَلُّون، لا تُكْثِرُوا الكَلامَ عَبَثًا كَالوَثَنِيِّين، فَهُم يَظُنُّونَ أَنَّهُم بِكَثْرَةِ كَلامِهِم يُسْتَجَابُون. فلا تَتَشَبَّهُوا بِهِم
إنجيل القدّيس متّى06/05حتى15/قالَ الربُّ يَسوع: «مَتَى صَلَّيْتُم، لا تَكُونُوا كَالمُرائِين، فَإِنَّهُم يُحِبُّونَ الصَّلاةَ وُقُوفًا في المَجَامِع، وفي زَوايا السَّاحَات، لِكَي يَظْهَرُوا لِلنَّاس. أَلحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُم: إِنَّهُم قَدْ نَالُوا أَجْرَهُم. أَمَّا أَنْتَ، مَتَى صَلَّيْتَ، فَٱدْخُلْ مُخْدَعَكَ وأَغْلِقْ بَابَكَ، وصَلِّ لأَبِيكَ في الخَفَاء، وأَبُوكَ الَّذي يَرَى في الخَفَاءِ هُوَ يُجَازِيك. وعِنْدَمَا تُصَلُّون، لا تُكْثِرُوا الكَلامَ عَبَثًا كَالوَثَنِيِّين، فَهُم يَظُنُّونَ أَنَّهُم بِكَثْرَةِ كَلامِهِم يُسْتَجَابُون. فلا تَتَشَبَّهُوا بِهِم، لأَنَّ أَبَاكُم يَعْلَمُ بِمَا تَحْتَاجُونَ إِليْهِ قَبْلَ أَنْ تَسْأَلُوه. أَمَّا أَنْتُم فَصَلُّوا هكَذَا: أَبَانَا الَّذي في السَّمَاوَات، لِيُقَدَّسِ ٱسْمُكَ، لِيَأْتِ مَلَكُوتُكَ، لِتَكُنْ مَشِيئَتُكَ كَمَا في السَّمَاءِ كذلِكَ عَلى الأَرْض. أَعْطِنَا خُبْزَنا كَفَافَ يَوْمِنَا. وَٱغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنا كَمَا غَفَرْنَا نَحْنُ أَيْضًا لِلْمُذْنِبِينَ إِلَيْنا. ولا تُدْخِلْنَا في التَّجْرِبَة، لكِن نَجِّنَا مِنَ الشِّرِّير. فَإِنْ تَغْفِرُوا لِلنَّاسِ زَلاَّتِهِم يَغْفِرْ لَكُم أَيْضًا أَبُوكُمُ السَّمَاوِيّ. وإِنْ لَمْ تَغْفِرُوا لِلنَّاسِ فَأَبُوكُم أَيْضًا لا يَغْفِرُ لَكُم زَلاَّتِكُم.

 

‘When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them.
Matthew 06/05-15/”Whenever you pray, do not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, so that they may be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward. But whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you. ‘When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. ‘Pray then in this way: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the evil one. For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

يا إخوَتِي، عَلَيْنَا نَحْنُ الأَقْوِيَاءَ أَنْ نَحْمِلَ ضُعْفَ الضُّعَفَاء، ولا نُرْضِيَ أَنْفُسَنَا، بَلْ لِيُرْضِ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ مِنَّا قَرِيبَهُ
رسالة القدّيس بولس إلى أهل رومة15/من01حتى13/ يا إخوَتِي، عَلَيْنَا نَحْنُ الأَقْوِيَاءَ أَنْ نَحْمِلَ ضُعْفَ الضُّعَفَاء، ولا نُرْضِيَ أَنْفُسَنَا، بَلْ لِيُرْضِ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ مِنَّا قَرِيبَهُ في سَبِيلِ الخَيْرِ مِنْ أَجْلِ البُنْيَان؛ لأَنَّ المَسِيحَ لَمْ يُرْضِ نَفْسَهُ، بَلْ كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوب: « تَعْيِيرَاتُ مُعَيِّرِيكَ وَقَعَتْ عَلَيَّ». فَكُلُّ مَا كُتِبَ قَدِيْمًا إِنَّمَا كُتِبَ لِتَعْلِيمِنَا، لِيَكُونَ لَنَا رَجَاءٌ بِمَا في الكُتُبِ مِنْ ثَبَاتٍ وتَعْزِيَة. وَلْيُعْطِكُم إِلَهُ الثَّبَاتِ والتَّعْزِيَةِ أَنْ تَكُونُوا عَلى رَأْيٍ وَاحِدٍ بَعْضُكُم مَعَ بَعْض، بِحَسَبِ مَشِيئَةِ المَسيحِ يَسُوع، حَتَّى تُمَجِّدُوا بِفَمٍ وَاحِدٍ وَنَفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ ٱللهَ أَبَا رَبِّنَا يَسُوعَ المَسِيح! لِذلِكَ فَٱقْبَلُوا بَعْضُكُم بَعْضًا، كَمَا قَبِلَكُمُ المَسِيح، لِمَجْدِ الله. وأَنَا أَقُولُ لَكُم إِنَّ المَسِيحَ صَارَ خَادِمًا لأَهْلِ الخِتَانَة، لِيُظْهِرَ صِدْقَ الله، وَيُثَبِّتَ وُعُودَهُ لِلآبَاء، فَتُمَجِّدَ الأُمَمُ اللهَ مِنْ أَجْلِ رَحْمَتِهِ، كَمَا هوَ مَكْتُوب: «لِذلِكَ أُسَبِّحُكَ بَيْنَ الأُمَم، وأُرَنِّمُ لٱسْمِكَ». ومَكْتُوبٌ أَيْضًا: «تَهَلَّلُوا، أَيُّهَا الأُمَم، مَعَ شَعْبِهِ». وأَيْضًا: «سَبِّحُوا الرَّبَّ، يَا جَميعَ الأُمَم، وٱمْدَحُوهُ يَا جَمِيعَ الشُّعُوب». ويَقُولُ آشَعْيَا أَيْضًا: «سَيَظْهَرُ فَرْعٌ مِنْ أَصْلِ يَسَّى، ويَقُومُ لِيَرْئِسَ الأُمَم، وإِيَّاهُ تَتَرَجَّى الأُمَم».وَلْيَمْلأْكُم إِلهُ الرَّجَاءِ كُلَّ فَرَحٍ وسَلامٍ في إِيْمَانِكُم، لِتَزْدَادُوا في الرَّجَاء، بِقُوَّةِ الرُّوحِ القُدُس

“We who are strong ought to put up with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves
Letter to the Romans 15/01-13/”We who are strong ought to put up with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Each of us must please our neighbour for the good purpose of building up the neighbour. For Christ did not please himself; but, as it is written, ‘The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me.’For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, so that by steadfastness and by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope. May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, in accordance with Christ Jesus, so that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the circumcised on behalf of the truth of God in order that he might confirm the promises given to the patriarchs, and in order that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written, ‘Therefore I will confess you among the Gentiles, and sing praises to your name’; and again he says, ‘Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people’; and again, ‘Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and let all the peoples praise him’; and again Isaiah says, ‘The root of Jesse shall come, the one who rises to rule the Gentiles; in him the Gentiles shall hope.’”
