لا يَحْتَاجُ الأَصِحَّاءُ إِلى طَبِيْب، بَلِ الَّذينَ بِهِم سُوء.إِذْهَبُوا وتَعَلَّمُوا مَا مَعْنَى: أُرِيدُ رَحْمَةً لا ذَبِيْحَة! فَإنِّي مَا جِئْتُ لأَدْعُوَ الأَبْرَارَ بَلِ الخَطَأَة
إنجيل القدّيس متّى09/من09حتى13/”فيمَا يَسُوعُ مُجْتَازٌ مِنْ هُنَاك، رَأَى رَجُلاً جَالِسًا في دَارِ الجِبَايَة، إِسْمُهُ مَتَّى، فَقَالَ لَهُ: «إِتْبَعْنِي». فقَامَ وتَبِعَهُ. وفيمَا يَسُوعُ مُتَّكِئٌ في البَيْت، إِذَا عَشَّارُونَ وخَطَأَةٌ كَثِيرُونَ قَدْ جَاؤُوا وٱتَّكَأُوا مَعَ يَسُوعَ وتَلامِيذِهِ. ورَآهُ الفَرِّيسِيِّوُنَ فَأَخَذُوا يَقُولُونَ لِتَلامِيْذِهِ: «مَا بَالُ مُعَلِّمِكُم يَأْكُلُ مَعَ العَشَّارِيْنَ والخَطَأَة؟». وسَمِعَ يَسُوعُ فَقَال: «لا يَحْتَاجُ الأَصِحَّاءُ إِلى طَبِيْب، بَلِ الَّذينَ بِهِم سُوء.إِذْهَبُوا وتَعَلَّمُوا مَا مَعْنَى: أُرِيدُ رَحْمَةً لا ذَبِيْحَة! فَإنِّي مَا جِئْتُ لأَدْعُوَ الأَبْرَارَ بَلِ الخَطَأَة».

Go and learn what this means, “I desire mercy, not sacrifice.” For I have come to call not the righteous but sinners.”
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 09/09-13: “As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man called Matthew sitting at the tax booth; and he said to him, ‘Follow me.’ And he got up and followed him. And as he sat at dinner in the house, many tax-collectors and sinners came and were sitting with him and his disciples. When the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, ‘Why does your teacher eat with tax-collectors and sinners?’But when he heard this, he said, ‘Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. Go and learn what this means, “I desire mercy, not sacrifice.” For I have come to call not the righteous but sinners.”

حَسِبَنِي المسيح أَمِينًا فَجَعَلَنِي لِلخِدْمَة، أَنَا الَّذي كُنْتُ مِنْ قَبْلُ مُجَدِّفًا ومُضْطَهِدًا وشَتَّامًا، لكِنَّ اللهَ رَحِمَنِي
رسالة القدّيس بولس الأولى إلى طيموتاوس01/من12حتى19/يا إِخوَتي، أَشْكُرُ المَسِيحَ يَسُوعَ رَبَّنَا، الَّذي قَوَّاني، لأَنَّهُ حَسِبَنِي أَمِينًا فَجَعَلَنِي لِلخِدْمَة، أَنَا الَّذي كُنْتُ مِنْ قَبْلُ مُجَدِّفًا ومُضْطَهِدًا وشَتَّامًا، لكِنَّ اللهَ رَحِمَنِي، لأَنِّي فَعَلْتُ ذلِكَ وأَنَا جَاهِلٌ غَيرُ مُؤْمِن. لَقَد فَاضَتْ عَلَيَّ نِعْمَةُ رَبِّنَا معَ الإِيْمَانِ والمَحَبَّةِ الَّتِي في الْمَسِيحِ يَسُوع. صَادِقَةٌ هِيَ الكَلِمَةُ وجَدِيرَةٌ بكُلِّ قَبُول: أَنَّ المَسِيحَ يَسُوعَ جَاءَ إِلى العَالَمِ لِيُخَلِّصَ الخَطأَة، وَأَوَّلُهُم أَنَا. لكِنَّ المَسِيحَ يَسُوعَ رَحِمَنِي، لِيُظْهِرَ كُلَّ أَنَاتِهِ فِيَّ أَنَا أَوَّلاً، مِثَالاً للَّذِينَ سَيُؤمِنُونَ بِهِ لِلحَياةِ الأَبَدِيَّة. فَلِمَلِكِ الدُّهُورِ الخَالِدِ غَيرِ المَنْظُور، الإِلهِ الوَاحِد، ٱلكرَامَةُ والمَجْدُ إِلى أَبَدِ الآبِدِين. آمين! أَسْتَودِعُكَ هذِهِ الوَصِيَّة، يَا ٱبْنِي طِيمُوتَاوُس، بِمُقتَضَى النُّبُوءَاتِ السَّابِقَةِ الَّتي تُلِيَتْ عَلَيْك، لِكَي تُجَاهِدَ بِهَا الجِهَادَ الحَسَن، مُتَمَسِّكًا بِالإِيْمَانِ والضَّمِيرِ الصَّالِح، وقَد رَفَضَهُمَا أُنَاسٌ فَتَحَطَّمَتْ سَفِينَةُ إِيْمَانِهِم.

Jesus judged me faithful and appointed me to his service, even though I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and a man of violence
First Letter to Timothy 01/12-19: “I am grateful to Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because he judged me faithful and appointed me to his service, even though I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and a man of violence. But I received mercy because I had acted ignorantly in unbelief, and the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners of whom I am the foremost. But for that very reason I received mercy, so that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display the utmost patience, making me an example to those who would come to believe in him for eternal life. To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen. I am giving you these instructions, Timothy, my child, in accordance with the prophecies made earlier about you, so that by following them you may fight the good fight,having faith and a good conscience. By rejecting conscience, certain persons have suffered shipwreck in the faith;”
