When you grow old, you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will fasten a belt around you and take you where you do not wish to go/حِينَ كُنْتَ شَابًّا، كُنْتَ تَشُدُّ حِزَامَكَ بِيَدَيْكَ وتَسِيرُ إِلى حَيْثُ تُرِيد. ولكِنْ حِينَ تَشِيخ، سَتَبْسُطُ يَدَيْكَ وآخَرُ يَشُدُّ لَكَ حِزامَكَ، ويَذْهَبُ بِكَ إِلى حَيْثُ لا تُرِيد

حِينَ كُنْتَ شَابًّا، كُنْتَ تَشُدُّ حِزَامَكَ بِيَدَيْكَ وتَسِيرُ إِلى حَيْثُ تُرِيد. ولكِنْ حِينَ تَشِيخ، سَتَبْسُطُ يَدَيْكَ وآخَرُ يَشُدُّ لَكَ حِزامَكَ، ويَذْهَبُ بِكَ إِلى حَيْثُ لا تُرِيد
إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا 21/من15حتى19/”بَعْدَ الغَدَاء، قَالَ يَسُوعُ لِسِمْعَانَ بُطْرُس: «يَا سِمْعَانُ بْنَ يُونَا، أَتُحِبُّنِي أَكْثَرَ مِمَّا يُحِبُّنِي هؤُلاء؟». قَالَ لَهُ: «نَعَم، يَا رَبّ، أَنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنِّي أُحِبُّكَ». قَالَ لَهُ يَسُوع: «إِرْعَ حُمْلانِي». قَالَ لَهُ مَرَّةً ثَانِيَةً: «يَا سِمْعَانُ بْنَ يُونَا، أَتُحِبُّنِي؟». قَالَ لَهُ: «نَعَمْ يَا رَبّ، أَنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنِّي أُحِبُّكَ». قَالَ لَهُ يَسُوع: «إِرْعَ نِعَاجِي!». قَالَ لَهُ مَرَّةً ثَالِثَة: «يَا سِمْعَانُ بْنَ يُونَا، أَتُحِبُّنِي؟». فَحَزِنَ بُطْرُس، لأَنَّ يَسُوعَ قَالَ لَهُ ثَلاثَ مَرَّات: أَتُحِبُّنِي؟ فَقَالَ لَهُ: «يَا رَبّ، أَنْتَ تَعْلَمُ كُلَّ شَيء، وَأَنْتَ تَعْرِفُ أَنِّي أُحِبُّكَ». قَالَ لَهُ يَسُوع: «إِرْعَ خِرَافِي! أَلحَقَّ ٱلحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكَ: حِينَ كُنْتَ شَابًّا، كُنْتَ تَشُدُّ حِزَامَكَ بِيَدَيْكَ وتَسِيرُ إِلى حَيْثُ تُرِيد. ولكِنْ حِينَ تَشِيخ، سَتَبْسُطُ يَدَيْكَ وآخَرُ يَشُدُّ لَكَ حِزامَكَ، ويَذْهَبُ بِكَ إِلى حَيْثُ لا تُرِيد».قَالَ يَسُوعُ ذلِكَ مُشيرًا إِلى المِيتَةِ الَّتِي سَيُمَجِّدُ بِهَا بُطْرُسُ الله. ثُمَّ قَالَ لَهُ: «إِتْبَعْنِي!».

 

 When you were younger, you used to fasten your own belt and to go wherever you wished. But when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will fasten a belt around you and take you where you do not wish to go you and take you where you do not wish to go
John 21/15-19: “When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?’ He said to him, ‘Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my lambs.’ A second time he said to him, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ He said to him, ‘Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Tend my sheep.’ He said to him the third time, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ Peter felt hurt because he said to him the third time, ‘Do you love me?’ And he said to him, ‘Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my sheep. Very truly, I tell you, when you were younger, you used to fasten your own belt and to go wherever you wished. But when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will fasten a belt around you and take you where you do not wish to go.’ (He said this to indicate the kind of death by which he would glorify God.) After this he said to him, ‘Follow me.’

فَبِالنِّعمَةِ أَنْتُمْ مُخَلَّصُونَ بِواسِطَةِ الإِيْمَان: وهذَا لَيْسَ مِنْكُم، إِنَّهُ عَطِيَّةُ الله
الزوادة الإيمانية لليوم/رسالة القدّيس بولس إلى أهل أفسس02/من01حتى10/”يا إِخوَتِي، وأَنْتُم، فقَدْ كُنْتُمْ أَمْوَاتًا بِزَلاَّتِكُم وخَطَايَاكُم، الَّتي سَلَكْتُم فيهَا مِنْ قَبْلُ بِحَسَبِ إِلهِ هذَا العَالَم، بِحَسَبِ رَئِيسِ سُلْطَانِ الجَوّ، أَي الرُّوحِ الَّذي يَعْمَلُ الآنَ في أَبْنَاءِ العُصْيَان؛ ومِنْهُم نَحْنُ أَيْضًا جَمِيعُنَا قَدْ سَلَكْنَا مِنْ قَبْلُ في شَهَواتِ إِنْسَانِنَا الجَسَدِيّ، عَامِلِينَ بِرَغَبَاتِهِ وأَفكَارِهِ، وكُنَّا بِالطَّبِيعَةِ أَولادَ الغَضَبِ كَالبَاقِين؛ لكِنَّ الله، وهُوَ الغنِيُّ بِرَحْمَتِهِ، فَلِكَثْرَةِ مَحَبَّتِهِ الَّتي أَحَبَّنَا بِهَا، وقَدْ كُنَّا نَحْنُ أَيْضًا أَمْوَاتًا بِزَلاَّتِنَا، أَحْيَانَا معَ المَسِيح، وبِالنِّعْمَةِ أَنْتُم مُخَلَّصُون؛ ومَعَهُ أَقَامَنَا وَأَجْلَسَنَا في السَّمَاوَاتِ في المَسِيحِ يَسُوع، لِيُظْهِرَ في الأَجْيَالِ الآتِيَةِ غِنَى نِعْمَتِهِ الفَائِقَة، بِلُطْفِهِ لَنَا في المَسِيحِ يَسُوع. فَبِالنِّعمَةِ أَنْتُمْ مُخَلَّصُونَ بِواسِطَةِ الإِيْمَان: وهذَا لَيْسَ مِنْكُم، إِنَّهُ عَطِيَّةُ الله. ولا هُوَ مِنَ الأَعْمَال، لِئَلاَّ يَفْتَخِرَ أَحَد؛ لأَنَّنَا نَحْنُ صُنْعُهُ، قَدْ خُلِقْنَا في المَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ لِلأَعْمَالِ الصَّالِحَة، الَّتي سَبَقَ اللهُ فأَعَدَّهَا لِكَي نَسْلُكَ فيهَا”.

 

By grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God not the result of works, so that no one may boast
Letter to the Ephesians 02/01-10: “You were dead through the trespasses and sins in which you once lived, following the course of this world, following the ruler of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work among those who are disobedient. All of us once lived among them in the passions of our flesh, following the desires of flesh and senses, and we were by nature children of wrath, like everyone else. But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ by grace you have been saved and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness towards us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God not the result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.”
