إنْ لَمْ تَعُودُوا فَتَصِيرُوا مِثْلَ الأَطْفَال، لَنْ تَدْخُلُوا مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَاوَات Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

إِنْ لَمْ تَعُودُوا فَتَصِيرُوا مِثْلَ الأَطْفَال، لَنْ تَدْخُلُوا مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَاوَات
إنجيل القدّيس متّى18/من01حتى05/:”في تِلْكَ السَّاعَة، دَنَا التَّلامِيذُ مِنْ يَسُوعَ وقَالُوا: «مَنْ هُوَ الأَعْظَمُ في مَلَكُوتِ السَّمَاوَات؟». فَدَعَا يَسُوعُ طِفْلاً، وأَقَامَهُ في وَسَطِهِم، وقَال: «أَلحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُم: إِنْ لَمْ تَعُودُوا فَتَصِيرُوا مِثْلَ الأَطْفَال، لَنْ تَدْخُلُوا مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَاوَات. فَمَنْ وَاضَعَ نَفْسَهُ مِثْلَ هذَا الطِّفْلِ هُوَ الأَعْظَمُ في مَلَكُوتِ السَّمَاوَات. ومَنْ قَبِلَ بِٱسْمِي طِفْلاً وَاحِدًا مِثْلَ هذَا فَقَدْ قَبِلَني”.

Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 18/01-05:”At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’He called a child, whom he put among them, and said, ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.’

فَأَيَّ بَيْتٍ تَبْنُونَ لِي، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبّ، وأَيُّ مَكَانٍ يَكُونُ مَقَرَّ رَاحَتِي؟ أَلَيْسَتْ يَدِي هِيَ ٱلَّتِي صَنَعَتْ هذِهِ ٱلأَشْيَاءَ كُلَّها
سفر أعمال الرسل07/من44حتى50/:”يا إِخْوَتِي، قالَ إِسطِفَانُس: «كَانَ لآبَائِنَا في ٱلبَرِّيَّةِ خَيْمَةُ ٱلشَّهَادَةِ ٱلَّتِي صَنَعَهَا مُوسَى، كَمَا أَمَرَهُ ٱلمُتَكَلِّمُ مَعَهُ، عَلى ٱلمِثَالِ ٱلَّذِي كَانَ قَدْ رَآه. هذِهِ ٱلخَيْمَةُ تَسَلَّمَهَا آبَاؤُنَا، فَدَخَلُوا بِهَا مَعَ يَشُوع، وتَمَلَّكُوا أَرْضَ ٱلأُمَم، ٱلَّذِينَ طَرَدَهُمُ ٱللهُ مِنْ وَجْهِ آبَائِنَا، حَتَّى أَيَّامِ داوُد، ٱلَّذِي وَجَدَ نِعْمَةً أَمَامَ ٱلله، وٱلْتَمَسَ أَنْ يَجِدَ مَسْكِنًا لإِلهِ يَعْقُوب. ولكِنَّ سُلَيْمَانَ هُوَ ٱلَّذِي بَنَى لَهُ بَيْتًا. غَيرَ أَنَّ ٱلعَليَّ لا يَسْكُنُ في مَصْنُوعَاتِ ٱلأَيْدِي، كَمَا يَقُولُ ٱلنَّبِيّ: أَلسَّمَاءُ عَرْشِي، وٱلأَرْضُ مَوطِئُ قَدَمَيَّ، فَأَيَّ بَيْتٍ تَبْنُونَ لِي، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبّ، وأَيُّ مَكَانٍ يَكُونُ مَقَرَّ رَاحَتِي؟ أَلَيْسَتْ يَدِي هِيَ ٱلَّتِي صَنَعَتْ هذِهِ ٱلأَشْيَاءَ كُلَّها”؟

“Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house will you build for me, says the Lord, or what is the place of my rest
Acts of the Apostles 07/44-50:”‘Our ancestors had the tent of testimony in the wilderness, as God directed when he spoke to Moses, ordering him to make it according to the pattern he had seen. Our ancestors in turn brought it in with Joshua when they dispossessed the nations that God drove out before our ancestors. And it was there until the time of David, who found favour with God and asked that he might find a dwelling-place for the house of Jacob. But it was Solomon who built a house for him. Yet the Most High does not dwell in houses made by human hands; as the prophet says, “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house will you build for me, says the Lord, or what is the place of my rest? Did not my hand make all these things?”
