أَجَل، إِنْ لَمْ تُؤْمِنُوا أَنِّي أَنَا هُوَ تَمُوتُوا فِي خَطَايَاكُم
إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا08/من21حتى27/:”قالَ الرَبُّ يَسُوع (للكتبة والفرّيسيّين): «أَنَا أَمْضِي، وتَطْلُبُونِي وتَمُوتُونَ في خَطِيئَتِكُم. حَيْثُ أَنَا أَمْضِي لا تَقْدِرُونَ أَنْتُم أَنْ تَأْتُوا». فَأَخَذَ اليَهُودُ يَقُولُون: «أَتُراهُ يَقْتُلُ نَفْسَهُ؟ فَإِنَّهُ يَقُول: حَيْثُ أَنَا أَمْضِي لا تَقْدِرُونَ أَنْتُم أَنْ تَأْتُوا!». ثُمَّ قَالَ لَهُم: «أَنْتُم مِنْ أَسْفَل، وأَنَا مِنْ فَوْق. أَنْتُم مِنْ هذَا العَالَم، وأَنَا لَسْتُ مِنْ هذَا العَالَم. لِذلِكَ قُلْتُ لَكُم: سَتَمُوتُونَ في خَطَايَاكُم. أَجَل، إِنْ لَمْ تُؤْمِنُوا أَنِّي أَنَا هُوَ تَمُوتُوا فِي خَطَايَاكُم». فَقَالُوا لَهُ: «أَنْتَ، مَنْ أَنْت؟». قَالَ لَهُم يَسُوع: «أَنَا هُوَ مَا أَقُولُهُ لَكُم مُنْذُ البَدء. لِي كَلامٌ كَثِيرٌ أَقُولُهُ فِيكُم وأَدِينُكُم. لكِنَّ الَّذي أَرْسَلَنِي صَادِق. ومَا سَمِعْتُهُ أَنَا مِنْهُ، فَهذَا أَقُولُهُ لِلْعَالَم». ولَمْ يَعْرِفُوا أَنَّهُ كَانَ يُحَدِّثُهُم عَنِ الآب.”

I told you that you would die in your sins, for you will die in your sins unless you believe that I am he
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 08/21-27/:”Again he said to them, ‘I am going away, and you will search for me, but you will die in your sin. Where I am going, you cannot come.’Then the Jews said, ‘Is he going to kill himself? Is that what he means by saying, “Where I am going, you cannot come”?’He said to them, ‘You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world. I told you that you would die in your sins, for you will die in your sins unless you believe that I am he.’They said to him, ‘Who are you?’ Jesus said to them, ‘Why do I speak to you at all? I have much to say about you and much to condemn; but the one who sent me is true, and I declare to the world what I have heard from him.’They did not understand that he was speaking to them about the Father.”

إِنْتَبِهْ لِنَفْسِكَ وَلِتَعْلِيمِكَ، وَٱثْبُتْ في ذلِك. فإِذا فَعَلْتَ خَلَّصْتَ نَفسَكَ والَّذِينَ يَسْمَعُونَكَ
رسالة القدّيس بولس الأولى إلى طيموتاوس04/من09حتى16/:”يا إخوَتِي، صادِقَةٌ هيَ الكَلِمَةُ وجَدِيرَةٌ بِكُلِّ قَبُول:إِنْ كُنَّا نَتْعَبُ ونُجَاهِد، فذلِكَ لأَنَّنَا جَعَلْنَا رجَاءَنا في اللهِ الحَيّ، الذي هُوَ مُخلِّصُ النَّاس أَجْمَعِين، ولا سِيَّمَا المُؤْمِنِين. فأَوْصِ بِذلكَ وعَلِّمْهُ. ولا تَدَعْ أَحَدًا يَسْتَهِينُ بِحَداثَةِ سِنِّكَ، بَلْ كُنْ مِثَالاً للمُؤْمِنِين، بِالكَلام، والسِّيرَة، والمَحَبَّة، والإِيْمَان، والعَفَاف. وَاظِبْ عَلى إِعْلانِ الكَلِمَةِ والوَعْظِ والتَّعْلِيم، إِلى أَنْ أَجِيء. لا تُهْمِلِ المَوْهِبَةَ الَّتي فِيك، وقَد وُهِبَتْ لَكَ بالنُّبُوءَةِ معَ وَضْعِ أَيْدِي الشُّيُوخِ عَلَيك. إِهْتَمَّ بِتِلْكَ الأُمُور، وكُنْ مُواظِبًا عَلَيهَا، لِيَكُونَ تَقَدُّمُكَ واضِحًا لِلجَمِيع. إِنْتَبِهْ لِنَفْسِكَ وَلِتَعْلِيمِكَ، وَٱثْبُتْ في ذلِك. فإِذا فَعَلْتَ خَلَّصْتَ نَفسَكَ والَّذِينَ يَسْمَعُونَكَ.”

Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching; continue in these things, for in doing this you will save both yourself and your hearers
First Letter to Timothy 04/09-16/:”The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance. For to this end we toil and struggle, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Saviour of all people, especially of those who believe. These are the things you must insist on and teach. Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. Until I arrive, give attention to the public reading of scripture, to exhorting, to teaching. Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you through prophecy with the laying on of hands by the council of elders. Put these things into practice, devote yourself to them, so that all may see your progress. Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching; continue in these things, for in doing this you will save both yourself and your hearers.”
