أَقُولُ لَكُم: لا! ولكِنْ إِنْ لَمْ تَتُوبُوا تَهْلِكُوا جَمِيعُكُم كَذلِكَ
إنجيل القدّيس لوقا13/من01حتى05/في ذلِكَ الوَقْت، حَضَرَ أُنَاسٌ وَأَخْبَرُوهُ بِأَمْرِ الجَليلِيِّين، الَّذينَ مَزَجَ بِيلاطُسُ دَمَهُم بِدَمِ ذَبَائِحِهِم. فَأَجَابَ يَسُوعُ وَقَالَ لَهُم: «هَلْ تَظُنُّونَ أَنَّ هؤُلاءِ الجَلِيليِّينَ كَانُوا خَطَأَةً أَكْثَرَ مِنْ جَميعِ الجَلِيليِّين، لأَنَّهُم نُكِبوا بِذلِكَ؟ أَقُولُ لَكُم: لا! وَلكِنْ إِنْ لَمْ تَتُوبُوا تَهْلِكُوا جَمِيعُكُم مِثْلَهُم! وَأُولئِكَ الثَّمَانِيَةَ عَشَر، الَّذِينَ سَقَطَ عَلَيْهِمِ ٱلبُرْجُ في شِيلُوح، وَقَتَلَهُم، أَتَظُنُّونَ أَنَّهُم كَانُوا مُذْنِبِينَ أَكْثَرَ مِنْ جَمِيعِ السَّاكِنِينَ في أُورَشَلِيم؟ أَقُولُ لَكُم: لا! ولكِنْ إِنْ لَمْ تَتُوبُوا تَهْلِكُوا جَمِيعُكُم كَذلِكَ!».

 

I tell you; unless you repent, you will all perish
Luke 13/01-05: “At that very time there were some present who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. He asked them, ‘Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way they were worse sinners than all other Galileans? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish as they did. Or those eighteen who were killed when the tower of Siloam fell on them do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others living in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish just as they did.’”

بولس يخلص كل المساجين الذين كانوا معه على السفينة
سفر أعمال الرسل37/من39حتى44/27/من27حتى33/يا إِخوَتِي : في ٱللَّيْلَةِ ٱلرَّابِعَةَ عَشْرَة، نَحْوَ مُنْتَصَفِ ٱللَّيْل ، وٱلرِّيَاحُ تَحْمِلُنَا في بَحْرِ أَدْرِيَا على غَيرِ هُدَى، أَحَسَّ ٱلبَحَّارَةُ أَنَّهُم يَقْتَرِبُونَ مِنَ ٱلبَرّ. وكَانَ بُولُسُ يَحُثُّهُم جَمِيعًا، حتَّى طُلُوعِ ٱلنَّهَار، عَلى تَناوُلِ ٱلطَّعَامِ قائِلاً: «هَا إِنَّ لَكُمُ ٱليَومَ أَرْبَعَةَ عَشَرَ يَومًا، وأَنتُم مُنْتَظِرُون، تُواصِلُونَ ٱلصَّومَ ولا تتَنَاولُونَ شَيْئًا! فَأَسْأَلُكُم أَنْ تتَنَاوَلُوا طَعَامًا، لأَنَّ ذَلِكَ يَؤُولُ بِكُم إِلى ٱلخَلاَص. ولَنْ تَهْلِكَ شَعْرَةٌ مِنْ رأْسِ أَيِّ واحِدٍ مِنْكُم». ولَمَّا قَالَ هذَا، أَخَذَ خُبْزًا، وشَكَرَ ٱللهَ أَمَامَ ٱلجَمِيع، وكَسَر، وٱبْتَدَأَ يَأْكُل. فتَشَجَّعُوا كُلُّهُم، وتَنَاوَلُوا هُم أَيْضًا طَعَامًا. وكُنَّا جَمِيعًا في ٱلسَّفينَةِ مِئَتَيْنِ وَسِتًّا وسَبْعِينَ نَفْسًا. ولَمَّا طَلَعَ ٱلنَّهَار، لَمْ يَسْتَطِعِ ٱلبَحَّارَةُ أَن يُمَيِّزُوا أَيَّ أَرْضٍ هِيَ، بَلْ تَبَيَّنُوا خَلِيجًا لَهُ شَاطِئ، فعَزَمُوا أَنْ يَدْفَعُوا بِٱلسَّفينَةِ إِلَيْه، إِنِ ٱسْتَطَاعُوا. فحَلُّوا ٱلمَرَاسي، وتَرَكُوهَا تَغْرَقُ في ٱلبَحْر، وأَرْخَوا ٱلحِبَالَ ٱلَّتِي تَرْبِطُ ٱلدَّفَّة، وَرَفَعُوا ٱلشِّرَاعَ ٱلصَّغيرَ لِلرِّيح، وٱتَّجَهُوا إِلى ٱلشَّاطِئ. ولكِنَّهُم وَقَعُوا عَلى مَكانٍ رَمْلِيٍّ بَينَ مَاءَيْن، فَدَفَعُوا بِٱلسَّفينَةِ إِلَيْه، فَغُرِزَ مُقَدَّمُهَا في ٱلمَكَان، وبَقِيَ لا يَتَحَرَّك، أَمَّا مُؤَخَّرُهَا فتَفَكَّكَ مِنْ شِدَّةِ ٱلمَوْج. وٱرْتَأَى ٱلجُنُودُ أَنْ يَقْتُلُوا ٱلأَسْرَى، لِئَلاَّ يَسْبَحَ أَحَدٌ مِنْهُم فَيَهْرُب. لكِنَّ قَائِدَ ٱلمِئَةِ كَانَ يُريدُ أَنْ يُخَلِّصَ بُولُس، فمَنَعُهُم مِنْ قَصْدِهِم، وأَمَرَ ٱلقَادِرِينَ عَلى ٱلسِّبَاحَةِ أَنْ يتَقَدَّمُوا فَيُلْقُوا بِأَنْفُسِهِم في ٱلمَاء، ويَعْبُرُوا إِلى ٱلبَرّ. أَمَّا ٱلبَاقُونَ فعَبَرُوا عَلى أَلْواحٍ خَشَبيَّة، أَو عَلى حُطَامِ ٱلسَّفينَة، وهكَذَا وصَلُوا إِلى ٱلبَرِّ سَالِمِين”.

Paul Saves all the Prisoners on the Ship
Acts of the Apostles 27/27.33/37.39-44: “When the fourteenth night had come, as we were drifting across the sea of Adria, about midnight the sailors suspected that they were nearing land. Just before daybreak, Paul urged all of them to take some food, saying, ‘Today is the fourteenth day that you have been in suspense and remaining without food, having eaten nothing. Therefore I urge you to take some food, for it will help you survive; for none of you will lose a hair from your heads.’After he had said this, he took bread; and giving thanks to God in the presence of all, he broke it and began to eat. Then all of them were encouraged and took food for themselves. (We were in all two hundred and seventy-six persons in the ship.) In the morning they did not recognize the land, but they noticed a bay with a beach, on which they planned to run the ship ashore, if they could. So they cast off the anchors and left them in the sea. At the same time they loosened the ropes that tied the steering-oars; then hoisting the foresail to the wind, they made for the beach. But striking a reef, they ran the ship aground; the bow stuck and remained immovable, but the stern was being broken up by the force of the waves. The soldiers’ plan was to kill the prisoners, so that none might swim away and escape; but the centurion, wishing to save Paul, kept them from carrying out their plan. He ordered those who could swim to jump overboard first and make for the land, and the rest to follow, some on planks and others on pieces of the ship. And so it was that all were brought safely to land.”
