وأَوَّلُ سَمَكةٍ تَطْلُعُ أَمْسِكْهَا، وٱفْتَحْ فَاهَا تَجِدْ أَرْبَعَةَ درَاهِم، فَخُذْهَا، وأَدِّهَا عَنِّي وعَنْكَ
إنجيل القدّيس متّى17/من24حتى27/:”لما وَصلُوا إِلى كَفَرْنَاحُومَ دَنَا جُبَاةُ الدِّرْهَمَيْنِ مِنْ بُطْرُس، وقَالُوا لَهُ: «أَلا يُؤَدِّي مُعَلِّمُكُم ضَرِيْبَةَ الدِّرْهَمَين؟». قَالَ بُطرُس: «بَلى!». ومَا إِنْ دَخَلَ البَيْتَ حَتَّى بَادَرَهُ يَسُوعُ بِقَولِهِ: «مَا رَأْيُكَ، يَا سِمْعَان؟ مِمَّنْ يَأْخُذُ مُلُوكُ الأَرْضِ الجِزْيَةَ أَوِ الضَّريبَة؟ أَمِنْ بَنِيهِم أَمْ مِنَ الغُرَبَاء؟». قَالَ بُطْرُس: «مِنَ الغُرَبَاء». فقَالَ لَهُ يَسُوع: «فَالبَنُونَ إِذًا أَحْرَار! ولكِنْ لِئَلاَّ نُشَكِّكَهُم، إِذْهَبْ إِلى البُحَيْرَة، وأَلْقِ الصِّنَّارَة، وأَوَّلُ سَمَكةٍ تَطْلُعُ أَمْسِكْهَا، وٱفْتَحْ فَاهَا تَجِدْ أَرْبَعَةَ درَاهِم، فَخُذْهَا، وأَدِّهَا عَنِّي وعَنْكَ».

Take the first fish that comes up; and when you open its mouth, you will find a coin; take that and give it to them for you and me
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 17/24-27/:”When they reached Capernaum, the collectors of the temple tax came to Peter and said, ‘Does your teacher not pay the temple tax?’He said, ‘Yes, he does.’ And when he came home, Jesus spoke of it first, asking, ‘What do you think, Simon? From whom do kings of the earth take toll or tribute? From their children or from others?’When Peter said, ‘From others’, Jesus said to him, ‘Then the children are free. However, so that we do not give offence to them, go to the lake and cast a hook; take the first fish that comes up; and when you open its mouth, you will find a coin; take that and give it to them for you and me.’”.

الجَمِيعَ يَطْلُبُونَ ما هُوَ لأَنْفُسِهِم، لا مَا هُو لِيَسُوعَ المَسِيح
رسالة القدّيس بولس إلى أهل فيلبّي02/من19حتى30/:”يا إخوَتِي، أَرجُو في الرَّبِّ يَسُوعَ أَنْ أُرْسِلَ إِلَيكُم طِيمُوتَاوُسَ عاجِلاً، لِتَطِيبَ نَفْسِي أَنَا أَيْضًا، مَتَى ٱطَّلَعْتُ على أَحْوالِكُم. فَلَيْسَ لي أَحدٌ غَيْرُهُ يُعْنَى مِثْلِي بِأَحْوالِكُم عِنَايَةً صَادِقَة. فإنَّ. فإِنَّكُم تَعْرِفُونَ خِبْرَتَهُ، لأَنَّهُ خَدَمَ معِي في سَبيلِ الإِنْجِيلِ كَٱلٱبْنِ معَ أَبِيه. فَهُوَ الَّذي أَرْجُو أَنْ أُرْسِلَهُ إِلَيْكُم عاجِلاً، حِينَ أَرَى ما سَيَكُونُ مِن أَمْرِي. وأَنا واثِقٌ بِالرَّبِّ أَنِّي أَنا أَيْضًا سَآتِيكُم عاجِلاً. وقَد حَسِبْتُ مِنَ الضَّرُورِيِّ أَنْ أُرْسِلَ إِلَيْكُم إِبَفْرُدِيطُسَ أَخِي ومُعَاوِنِي ورَفِيقِي في الجِهَاد، ورَسُولَكُم لِيَخْدُمَنِي في حَاجَتِي. فإِنَّهُ كانَ مُتَشَوِّقًا إِلَيْكُم جَمِيعًا، ومُغْتَمًّا لأَنَّكُم سَمِعْتُم بِمَرَضِهِ. فقد مَرِضَ حتَّى المَوت، لكِنَّ اللهَ ترأَّفَ بِهِ، لا بِهِ وَحْدَهُ، بَل بِي أَنا أَيْضًا، لِئَلاَّ أَزْدَادَ حُزْنًا على حُزْن. وسَأُرْسِلُهُ إِلَيْكُم عاجِلاً، حتَّى تَرَوهُ، فيَعُودَ الفَرَحُ إِلَيْكُم، ويَخِفَّ حُزْنِي. فٱسْتَقْبِلُوهُ إِذًا في الرَّبّ، بكُلِّ فَرَح، وعامِلُوا أَمْثَالَهُ بِالإِكْرَام. فإِنَّهُ قَدْ أَشْرَفَ على المَوْتِ في سَبِيلِ العَمَلِ لِلمَسِيح، وقَد خَاطَرَ بِنَفْسِهِ، لِيُكَمِّلَ ما نَقَصَ مِنْ خِدْمَتِكُم لِي.”

All of them are seeking their own interests, not those of Jesus
Letter to the Philippians 02/19-30./:”I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, so that I may be cheered by news of you. I have no one like him who will be genuinely concerned for your welfare. All of them are seeking their own interests, not those of Jesus
But Timothy’s worth you know, how like a son with a father he has served with me in the work of the gospel. I hope therefore to send him as soon as I see how things go with me;and I trust in the Lord that I will also come soon. Still, I think it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus my brother and co-worker and fellow-soldier, your messenger and minister to my need; for he has been longing for all of you, and has been distressed because you heard that he was ill. He was indeed so ill that he nearly died. But God had mercy on him, and not only on him but on me also, so that I would not have one sorrow after another. I am the more eager to send him, therefore, in order that you may rejoice at seeing him again, and that I may be less anxious. Welcome him then in the Lord with all joy, and honour such people, because he came close to death for the work of Christ, risking his life to make up for those services that you could not give me.
