بَلِ ٱلطُّوبَى لِلَّذينَ يَسْمَعُونَ كَلِمَةَ اللهِ وَيَحْفَظُونَها
إنجيل القدّيس لوقا11/من27حتى31/فيمَا يَسوعُ يَتَكَلَّم بِهذَا، رَفَعَتِ ٱمْرَأَةٌ مِنَ الجَمْعِ صَوْتَها، وَقَالَتْ لَهُ: «طُوبَى لِلْبَطْنِ الَّذي حَمَلَكَ، وَلِلثَّدْيَينِ اللَّذَينِ رَضِعْتَهُمَا». أَمَّا يَسُوعُ فَقَال: «بَلِ ٱلطُّوبَى لِلَّذينَ يَسْمَعُونَ كَلِمَةَ اللهِ وَيَحْفَظُونَها!». وفيمَا كانَ الجُمُوعُ مُحْتَشِدِين، بَدَأَ يَسُوعُ يَقُول: «إِنَّ هذَا الجِيلَ جِيلٌ شِرِّير. إِنَّهُ يَطْلُبُ آيَة، وَلَنْ يُعْطَى آيَةً إِلاَّ آيَةَ يُونَان. فكَمَا كَانَ يُونانُ آيَةً لأَهْلِ نِينَوى، كَذلِكَ سَيَكُونُ ٱبْنُ الإِنْسَانِ لِهذَا ٱلجِيل. مَلِكَةُ الجَنُوبِ سَتَقُومُ في الدَّيْنُونَةِ مَعَ رِجَالِ هذا الجِيلِ وَتَدِينُهُم، لأَنَّها جَاءَتْ مِنْ أَقَاصِي الأَرْضِ لِتَسْمَعَ حِكْمَةَ سُلَيْمَان، وَهَا هُنَا أَعْظَمُ مِنْ سُلَيْمَان”.

Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 11/27-31: “A woman in the crowd raised her voice and said to him, ‘Blessed is the womb that bore you and the breasts that nursed you!’But he said, ‘Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it!’When the crowds were increasing, he began to say, ‘This generation is an evil generation; it asks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah. For just as Jonah became a sign to the people of Nineveh, so the Son of Man will be to this generation. The queen of the South will rise at the judgement with the people of this generation and condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to listen to the wisdom of Solomon, and see, something greater than Solomon is here!”

 كُلُّ شَيءٍ بِهِ خُلِقَ وإِلَيه؛ وهُوَ قَبْلَ كُلِّ شَيء، وبِهِ يَثْبُتُ كُلُّ شَيء
رسالة القدّيس بولس إلى أهل قولسّي01/من09حتى17/يا إِخوَتِي، نَحْنُ أَيْضًا، مِنْ يَوْمَ سَمِعْنَا، لا نَزَالُ نُصَلِّي مِنْ أَجْلِكُم، ونَسْأَلُ اللهَ أَنْ يَمْلأَكُم مِنْ مَعْرِفَةِ مَشِيئَتِهِ، في كُلِّ حِكْمَةٍ وفَهْمٍ روحِيّ، لِتَسِيرُوا كَمَا يَلِيقُ بِالرَّبِّ في كُلِّ مَا يُرْضِيْه، مُثْمِرينَ في كُلِّ عَمَلٍ صَالِح، ونَامِينَ بِمَعْرِفَةِ الله، مُتَقَوِّينَ كُلَّ القُوَّةِ بِحَسَبِ عِزَّةِ مَجْدِهِ، بِكُلِّ ثَبَاتٍ وطُولِ أَنَاة، وَبِفَرَحٍ شَاكِرِينَ الآبَ الَّذي أَهَّلَكُم لِلشَّرِكَةِ في مِيراثِ القِدِّيسِينَ في النُّور؛ وهُوَ الَّذي نَجَّانَا مِنْ سُلطَانِ الظَّلام، ونَقَلَنَا إِلى مَلَكُوتِ ٱبْنِ مَحَبَّتِهِ، الَّذي لَنَا فيهِ ٱلفِدَاء، أَي مَغْفِرَةُ الخَطَايَا: إِنَّهُ صُورَةُ اللهِ غَيْرِ المَنْظُور، بِكْرُ كُلِّ خَليقَة، لأَنَّهُ بِهِ خُلِقَ كُلُّ شَيءٍ في السَّمَاواتِ وعلى الأَرْض، مَا يُرَى ومَا لا يُرَى، عُرُوشًا كَانَ أَمْ سِيَادَات، أَمْ رِئَاسَات، أَمْ سَلاطِين، كُلُّ شَيءٍ بِهِ خُلِقَ وإِلَيه؛ وهُوَ قَبْلَ كُلِّ شَيء، وبِهِ يَثْبُتُ كُلُّ شَيء،

All things have been created through Jesus and for him. He himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”
Letter to the Colossians 01/09-17: “For this reason, since the day we heard it, we have not ceased praying for you and asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you may lead lives worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, as you bear fruit in every good work and as you grow in the knowledge of God. May you be made strong with all the strength that comes from his glorious power, and may you be prepared to endure everything with patience, while joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; for in him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers all things have been created through him and for him. He himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”
