هَا إِنِّي أَضَعُ في صِهْيُونَ حَجَرَ عَثْرَةٍ، وصَخْرَةَ شَكٍّ، فَمَنْ يُؤْمِنُ بِهِ لا يُخْزَى
رسالة القدّيس بولس إلى أهل رومة09/من26حتى33/”يا إخوتي يَقُولُ التَبِيُّ هُوشَع: «سَيَكُونُ في المَوضِعِ الَّذي قيلَ لَهُم فِيه: لَسْتُم شَعْبِي! هُنَاكَ يُدْعَونَ أَبْنَاءَ اللهِ الحيّ». ويَهْتِفُ آشَعيَا في شَأْنِ إِسْرَائِيل: «ولَو كَانَ عَدَدُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ كَرَمْلِ البَحر، فَٱلبَقِيَّةُ مِنْهُم سَتَخْلُص! لأَنَّ الرَّبَّ سَيُتِمُّ كَلِمَتَهُ في الأَرْضِ إِتْمَامًا كَامِلاً وَسَريعًا». وكَمَا سَبَقَ آشَعْيَا فقَال: «لَو لَمْ يُبْقِ لَنَا الرَّبُّ القَدِيرُ نَسْلاً، لَصِرْنَا مِثْلَ سَدُوم، وأَشْبَهْنَا عَمُورَة!». إِذًا فَمَاذَا نَقُول؟ إِنَّ الأُمَمَ الَّذِينَ لَمْ يَسْعَوا إِلى البِرِّ قَدْ أَدْرَكُوا البِرّ، أَيْ البِرَّ الَّذي هُوَ مِنَ الإِيْمَان. أَمَّا إِسْرَائِيلُ الَّذي سَعَى إِلى شَرِيعَةِ البِرّ، فَلَمْ يَبْلُغْ شَرِيعَةَ البِرّ. لِمَاذَا؟ لأَنَّهُ لَمْ يَسْعَ إِلى البِرِّ بِالإِيْمَانِ بَلْ بِالأَعْمَال. فَعَثَرُوا بِحَجَرِ العَثْرَة، كَمَا هوَ مَكْتُوب: «هَا إِنِّي أَضَعُ في صِهْيُونَ حَجَرَ عَثْرَةٍ، وصَخْرَةَ شَكٍّ، فَمَنْ يُؤْمِنُ بِهِ لا يُخْزَى».”

See, I am laying in Zion a stone that will make people stumble, a rock that will make them fall, and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame
Letter to the Romans 09/26-33: “‘And in the very place where it was said to them, “You are not my people”, there they shall be called children of the living God.’And Isaiah cries out concerning Israel, ‘Though the number of the children of Israel were like the sand of the sea, only a remnant of them will be saved; for the Lord will execute his sentence on the earth quickly and decisively.’ And as Isaiah predicted, ‘If the Lord of hosts had not left survivors to us, we would have fared like Sodom and been made like Gomorrah.’ What then are we to say? Gentiles, who did not strive for righteousness, have attained it, that is, righteousness through faith; but Israel, who did strive for the righteousness that is based on the law, did not succeed in fulfilling that law. Why not? Because they did not strive for it on the basis of faith, but as if it were based on works. They have stumbled over the stumbling-stone,as it is written, ‘See, I am laying in Zion a stone that will make people stumble, a rock that will make them fall, and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.’”

رُوحُ الرَّبِّ علَيَّ، ولِهذَا مَسَحَني لأُبَشِّرَ المَسَاكِين
إنجيل القدّيس لوقا04/من14حتى21/”عَادَ يَسُوعُ بِقُوَّةِ الرُّوحِ إِلى الجَلِيل، وذَاعَ خَبَرُهُ في كُلِّ الجِوَار. وكانَ يُعَلِّمُ في مَجَامِعِهِم، والجَمِيعُ يُمَجِّدُونَهُ. وجَاءَ يَسُوعُ إِلى النَّاصِرَة، حَيْثُ نَشَأ، ودَخَلَ إِلى المَجْمَعِ كَعَادَتِهِ يَوْمَ السَّبْت، وقَامَ لِيَقْرَأ. وَدُفِعَ إِلَيهِ كِتَابُ النَّبِيِّ آشَعْيا. وفَتَحَ يَسُوعُ الكِتَاب، فَوَجَدَ المَوْضِعَ المَكْتُوبَ فِيه: «رُوحُ الرَّبِّ علَيَّ، ولِهذَا مَسَحَني لأُبَشِّرَ المَسَاكِين، وأَرْسَلَنِي لأُنَادِيَ بِإِطْلاقِ الأَسْرَى وعَوْدَةِ البَصَرِ إِلى العُمْيَان، وأُطْلِقَ المَقْهُورِينَ أَحرَارًا، وأُنَادِيَ بِسَنَةٍ مَقْبُولَةٍ لَدَى الرَّبّ.» ثُمَّ طَوَى الكِتَاب، وأَعَادَهُ إِلى الخَادِم، وَجَلَس. وكَانَتْ عُيُونُ جَمِيعِ الَّذِينَ في المَجْمَعِ شَاخِصَةً إِلَيْه. فبَدَأَ يَقُولُ لَهُم: «أَليَوْمَ تَمَّتْ هذِهِ الكِتَابَةُ الَّتي تُلِيَتْ على مَسَامِعِكُم».”

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor
Luke 04/14-21: “Then Jesus, filled with the power of the Spirit, returned to Galilee, and a report about him spread through all the surrounding country. He began to teach in their synagogues and was praised by everyone. When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written: ‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed meto bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind,to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.’ And he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. Then he began to say to them, ‘Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”
