ثُمَّ رَشَوا ٱلجُنُودَ بِمَبْلَغٍ كَبِيرٍ مِنَ الفِضَّة، قَائِلِين: «قُولُوا: إِنَّ تَلامِيذَهُ أَتَوا لَيْلاً وسَرَقُوه، ونَحْنُ نَائِمُون
إنجيل القدّيس متّى28/من11حتى15/”جَاءَ بَعْضُ الحُرَّاسِ إِلى المَدِيْنَة، وأَخْبَرُوا الأَحْبَارَ بِكُلِّ مَا حَدَث. فَٱجْتَمَعَ الأَحْبَارُ والشُّيُوخُ وتَشَاوَرُوا، ثُمَّ رَشَوا ٱلجُنُودَ بِمَبْلَغٍ كَبِيرٍ مِنَ الفِضَّة، قَائِلِين: «قُولُوا: إِنَّ تَلامِيذَهُ أَتَوا لَيْلاً وسَرَقُوه، ونَحْنُ نَائِمُون. وإِذَا سَمِعَ الوَالي بِالخَبَر، فَسَوْفَ نُرْضِيه، ونَجْعَلُكُم في أَمَان». فَأَخَذَ الجُنُودُ الفِضَّة، وفَعَلُوا كَمَا عَلَّمُوهُم. فَشَاعَ هذَا ٱلقَولُ عِنْدَ ٱليَهُودِ إِلى هذَا ٱليَوم.”

They devised a plan to give a large sum of money to the soldiers, telling them, ‘You must say, “His disciples came by night and stole him away while we were asleep
Matthew 28/11-15: “While they were going, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests everything that had happened. After the priests had assembled with the elders, they devised a plan to give a large sum of money to the soldiers, telling them, ‘You must say, “His disciples came by night and stole him away while we were asleep.”If this comes to the governor’s ears, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.’So they took the money and did as they were directed. And this story is still told among the Jews to this day.”
