هذَا الشَّعْبُ يُكْرِمُنِي بِشَفَتَيه، أَمَّا قَلْبُهُ فَبَعِيدٌ جِدًا عَنِّي. وبَاطِلاً يَعْبُدُونَنِي، وهُم يُعَلِّمُونَ تَعَالِيمَ لَيْسَتْ إِلاَّ وصَايَا بَشَر
إنجيل القدّيس متّى15/من01حتى09/:”دَنَا إِلى يَسُوعَ فَرِّيسِيُّونَ وكَتَبَةٌ مِنْ أُورَشَليمَ وقَالُوا لَهُ: لِمَاذَا يُخَالِفُ تَلامِيذُكَ تَقْليدَ الشُّيُوخ، فلا يَغْسِلُونَ أَيْدِيَهُم عِنْدَمَا يَتَنَاوَلُونَ طَعَامًا؟. فَأَجَابَ وقَالَ لَهُم: «وَأَنْتُم، لِمَاذَا تُخَالِفُونَ وَصِيَّةَ اللهِ مِنْ أَجْلِ تَقْليدِكُم؟ فَٱللهُ قَال: أَكْرِمْ أَبَاكَ وأُمَّكَ، ومَنْ يَلْعَنْ أَبَاهُ أَو أَمَّهُ فَلْيُقْتَلْ قَتْلاً. أَمَّا أَنْتُم فَتَقُولُون: إِنَّ مَنْ قَالَ لأَبِيهِ أَو أُمِّهِ: مَا يُمْكِنُني أَنْ أُسَاعِدَكَ بِهِ قَدَّمْتُهُ قُرْبَانًا لِلْهَيْكَل، لا يَعُودُ مُلْزَمًا بِإِكْرَامِ أَبِيْهِ أَو أُمِّهِ. فَمِنْ أَجْلِ تَقْليدِكُم أَبْطَلتُم كَلِمَةَ الله! يَا مُرَاؤُون، حَسَنًا تَنَبَّأَ عَلَيْكُم آشَعْيا قَائِلاً: هذَا الشَّعْبُ يُكْرِمُنِي بِشَفَتَيه، أَمَّا قَلْبُهُ فَبَعِيدٌ جِدًا عَنِّي. وبَاطِلاً يَعْبُدُونَنِي، وهُم يُعَلِّمُونَ تَعَالِيمَ لَيْسَتْ إِلاَّ وصَايَا بَشَر».”

These people give me honour with their lips, but their heart is far from me. But their worship is to no purpose, while they give as their teaching the rules of men.
Matthew 15/01-09: Then there came to Jesus from Jerusalem Pharisees and scribes, saying, Why do your disciples go against the teaching of the fathers? for they take food with unwashed hands. And in answer he said to them, Why do you, yourselves, go against the word of God on account of the teaching which has been handed down to you? For God said, Give honour to your father and mother: and, He who says evil of father or mother will be put to death. But you say, If a man says to his father or his mother, That by which you might have had profit from me is given to God; There is no need for him to give honour to his father. And you have made the word of God without effect because of your teaching. You false ones, well did Isaiah say of you, These people give me honour with their lips, but their heart is far from me. But their worship is to no purpose, while they give as their teaching the rules of men.

ٱلرَّبَّ أَرْسَلَ مَلاكَهُ لإنقاذ بطرس مِن يَدِ هِيرُودُس واخراجه من السجن
سفر أعمال الرسل12/من01حتى11/:”يا إخوتي، أَلْقَى هِيرُودُسُ ٱلمَلِكُ ٱلأَيْدِيَ على قَوْمٍ مِنَ ٱلكَنِيسَة، لِيُسِيءَ إِلَيهِم. فقَتَلَ بِحَدِّ ٱلسَّيفِ يَعْقُوب، أَخَا يُوحَنَّا. ولَمَّا رأَى أَنَّ ذلِكَ يُرضِي ٱليَهُود، زَادَ عَلى ذلِكَ فقَبَضَ أَيضًا على بُطرُس، وكانَ ذلِكَ في أَيَّامِ ٱلفَطير. فأَمْسَكَهُ ووَضَعَهُ في ٱلسِّجْن، وسَلَّمَهُ إِلى أَربَعِ وَحَداتٍ مِنَ ٱلجُنُودِ لِيَحرُسُوه، كُلُّ وَحْدَةٍ أَربَعَةُ جُنُود. وكانَ يَنْوي أَنْ يُقَدِّمَهُ بَعْدَ ٱلفِصْحِ إِلى ٱلشَّعْب. فَكَانَ بُطرُسُ مَحفُوظًا في ٱلسِّجْن، وكَانَتِ ٱلكَنيسَةُ تُصَلِّي إِلى ٱللهِ مِنْ أَجْلِهِ بِلا ٱنْقِطَاع. وفِيمَا كَانَ هِيرُودُسُ يَهُمُّ بِمُحَاكَمَةِ بُطرُس، وبُطرُسُ نائِمٌ تِلْكَ ٱللَّيْلةَ بينَ جُنْدِيَّين، مُقَيَّدٌ بسِلسِلَتَين، وٱلحُرَّاسُ على بَابِ السِّجْنِ يَحْرُسُون، إِذَا بِمَلاكِ ٱلرَّبِّ قَدْ وَقَفَ بِه، ونُورٌ أَضَاءَ في ٱلمَكَان، وضَرَبَ ٱلمَلاكُ جَنْبَ بُطرُسَ فأَيقَظَهُ، وقَال: «قُمْ سَريعًا!». فٱنْحَلَّتِ ٱلسِّلْسِلَتانِ مِن يَدَيه. وقَالَ ٱلمَلاكُ لِبُطرُس: «شُدَّ حِزامَكَ، وٱنْتَعِلْ حِذاءَكَ!»، فَفَعَلْ. ثُمَّ قالَ لهُ: «إِلْبَسْ رِداءَكَ، وٱتْبَعْنِي!». فخَرَجَ يَتْبَعُهُ، وهُوَ لا يَدْري أَنَّ مَا جَرَى عَلى يَدِ ٱلمَلاكِ كَانَ حَقِيقَة، بَلْ كانَ يَظُنُّ أَنَّهُ يَرَى رُؤْيَا.فٱجْتازَا ٱلحَرَسَ ٱلأَوَّلَ وٱلثَّانِي، وبَلَغَا ٱلبَابَ ٱلحَدِيدِيَّ ٱلمُؤَدِّيَ إِلى ٱلمَدينَة، فٱنْفَتَحَ لَهُمَا ٱلبَابُ تِلْقائِيًّا، فَخَرَجَا وٱجْتَازَا شَارِعًا واحِدًا، ولِلحَالِ فَارَقَهُ ٱلمَلاك. فَرَجَعَ بُطرُسُ إِلى نَفْسِهِ وقال: «أَلآنَ عَلِمْتُ حقًّا أَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ أَرْسَلَ مَلاكَهُ فأَنْقَذَني مِن يَدِ هِيرُودُس، ومِن كُلِّ ما توَقَّعَهُ لي شَعْبُ ٱليَهُود»

Almighty God Sent His Angle To Release Peter From Prison and rescue Him Form King Herod
Acts 12/01-11: Now, about that time, Herod the king made cruel attacks on the Christians. And he put James, the brother of John, to death with the sword. And when he saw that this was pleasing to the Jews he went on to take Peter in addition. This was at the time of the feast of unleavened bread. And having taken him, he put him in prison, with four bands of armed men to keep watch over him; his purpose being to take him out to the people after the Passover. So Peter was kept in prison: but the church made strong prayer to God for him. And when Herod was about to take him out, the same night Peter was sleeping in chains between two armed men, and the watchmen were keeping watch before the door of the prison. And a great light was seen shining in the room, and an angel of the Lord came to Peter and, touching him on his side so that he came out of his sleep, said, Get up quickly. And his chains came off his hands. Then the angel said, Put on your shoes and get ready to go. And he did so. And he said, Put your coat round you and come with me. And he went out after him; and he was not certain if what was done by the angel was a fact, for it seemed to him that he was seeing a vision. And when they had gone past the first and second watchmen they came to the iron door into the town, which came open by itself: and they went out and down one street; and then the angel went away. And when Peter came to his senses he said, Now, truly, I am certain that the Lord has sent his angel and taken me out of the hands of Herod, against all the hopes of the Jews.
