When you have done all that you were ordered to do say we are worthless slaves; we have done only what we ought to have done/إِذَا فَعَلْتُم كُلَّ ما أُمِرْتُمْ بِهِ فَقُولُوا: إِنَّنَا عَبِيدٌ لا نَفْعَ مِنَّا، فَقَد فَعَلْنا مَا كانَ يَجِبُ عَلَينا أَنْ نَفْعَل

253

وَهكذَا أَنْتُم إِذَا فَعَلْتُم كُلَّ ما أُمِرْتُمْ بِهِ فَقُولُوا: إِنَّنَا عَبِيدٌ لا نَفْعَ مِنَّا، فَقَد فَعَلْنا مَا كانَ يَجِبُ عَلَينا أَنْ نَفْعَل
إنجيل القدّيس لوقا17/من07حتى10/“قَالَ الرَبُّ يَسُوعُ: «مَنْ مِنْكُم لَهُ عَبْدٌ يَفْلَحُ الأَرْضَ أَوْ يَرْعَى القَطِيع، إِذا عَادَ مِنَ الحَقْل، يَقُولُ لَهُ: أَسْرِعْ وٱجْلِسْ لِلطَّعَام؟أَلا يَقُولُ لَهُ بِالأَحْرَى: أَعِدَّ لي شَيْئًا لأَتَعَشَّى، وَشُدَّ وَسْطَكَ وٱخْدُمْني حَتَّى آكُلَ وَأَشْرَب، وَبَعْدَ ذلِكَ تَأْكُلُ أَنْتَ وَتَشْرَب. هَلْ عَلَيهِ أَنْ يَشْكُرَ العَبْدَ لأَنَّهُ فَعَلَ ما أُمِرَ بِهِ؟ وَهكذَا أَنْتُم إِذَا فَعَلْتُم كُلَّ ما أُمِرْتُمْ بِهِ فَقُولُوا: إِنَّنَا عَبِيدٌ لا نَفْعَ مِنَّا، فَقَد فَعَلْنا مَا كانَ يَجِبُ عَلَينا أَنْ نَفْعَل».

So you also, when you have done all that you were ordered to do, say, “We are worthless slaves; we have done only what we ought to have done!” ’
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 17/07-10: “‘Who among you would say to your slave who has just come in from ploughing or tending sheep in the field, “Come here at once and take your place at the table”?Would you not rather say to him, “Prepare supper for me, put on your apron and serve me while I eat and drink; later you may eat and drink”? Do you thank the slave for doing what was commanded? So you also, when you have done all that you were ordered to do, say, “We are worthless slaves; we have done only what we ought to have done!” ’

فَجَمِيعُ الَّذِينَ يُرِيدُونَ أَنْ يَحْيَوا بِالتَّقْوَى في الْمَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ يُضْطَهَدُون
رسالة القدّيس بولس الثانية إلى طيموتاوس03/من10حتى17/“يا إخوَتِي، لَقَدْ تَبِعْتَ تَعْلِيمي، وسِيرَتي، وقَصْدي، وإِيْمَاني، وأَنَاتي، ومَحَبَّتي، وثَباتي، وٱضْطِهَادَاتي، وآلامي، كَالَّتي أَصَابَتْنِي في أَنطَاكِيَةَ وإِيقُونِيَةَ ولِسْترَة، وأَيَّ ٱضْطِهَاداتٍ ٱحْتَمَلْتُ! ومِنْ جَميعِهَا نَجَّاني الرَّبّ! فَجَمِيعُ الَّذِينَ يُرِيدُونَ أَنْ يَحْيَوا بِالتَّقْوَى في الْمَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ يُضْطَهَدُون. أَمَّا النَّاسُ الأَشْرَارُ والمُشَعْوِذُونَ فَإِنَّهُم يَتَمَادَوْنَ في الشَّرّ، مُضَلِّلِينَ الآخَرِينَ وهُم أَنْفُسُهُم مُضَلَّلُون. أَمَّا أَنْتَ فَٱثْبُتْ على مَا تَعَلَّمْتَهُ وأَيْقَنْتَهُ، عَارِفًا مِمَّنْ تَعَلَّمْتَهُ، وأَنَّكَ مُنذُ الطُّفُولَةِ تَعْرِفُ الكُتُبَ الْمُقَدَّسَةَ القادِرَةَ أَنْ تُصَيِّرَكَ حَكِيمًا في سَبيلِ الخَلاصِ بِالإِيْمَانِ في الْمَسِيحِ يَسُوع. فَالكِتَابُ كُلُّهُ إِنَّمَا اللهُ أَلْهَمَهُ، وهُوَ مُفِيدٌ لِلتَّعْلِيم، والتَّوْبِيخ، والتَّقْوِيم، والتَّأْدِيبِ في البِرّ، لِيَكُونَ رَجُلُ اللهِ كامِلاً، مُعَدًّا لِكُلِّ عَمَلٍ صَالِح. تفاصيل تعليقات الياس بجاني وخلفياتها”.

All who want to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
Second Letter to Timothy 03/10-17: “You have observed my teaching, my conduct, my aim in life, my faith, my patience, my love, my steadfastness,
my persecutions, and my suffering the things that happened to me in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra. What persecutions I endured! Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them. Indeed, all who want to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. But wicked people and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving others and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it, and how from childhood you have known the sacred writings that are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.”
