أَنَّ اللهَ ٱخْتَارَ مَا هُوَ حَمَاقَةٌ في العَالَمِ لِيُخْزِيَ ٱلحُكَمَاء، ومَا هُوَ ضُعْفٌ في العَالَمِ لِيُخْزِيَ ٱلأَقْوِيَاء/God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong

أَنَّ اللهَ ٱخْتَارَ مَا هُوَ حَمَاقَةٌ في العَالَمِ لِيُخْزِيَ ٱلحُكَمَاء، ومَا هُوَ ضُعْفٌ في العَالَمِ لِيُخْزِيَ ٱلأَقْوِيَاء
رسالة القدّيس بولس الأولى إلى أهل قورنتس01/من26حتى31/:” يا إِخوَتِي، فَٱنْظُرُوا دَعْوَتَكُم، يَا إِخْوَتِي، فَلَيْسَ فِيكُم كَثِيرُونَ حُكَمَاءُ بِحِكْمَةِ البَشَر، ولا كَثِيرُونَ أَقْوِيَاء، ولا كَثِيرُونَ مِنْ ذَوِي الحَسَبِ الشَّرِيف. إِلاَّ أَنَّ اللهَ ٱخْتَارَ مَا هُوَ حَمَاقَةٌ في العَالَمِ لِيُخْزِيَ ٱلحُكَمَاء، ومَا هُوَ ضُعْفٌ في العَالَمِ لِيُخْزِيَ ٱلأَقْوِيَاء.
وٱخْتَارَ اللهُ مَا هُوَ وَضِيعٌ ومُحْتَقَرٌ ومَعْدُوم، لِيُبْطِلَ المَوْجُود، لِئَلاَّ يَفْتَخِرَ بَشَرٌ أَمَامَ الله. فَبِفَضْلِ اللهِ أَنْتُم في المَسِيحِ يَسُوع، الَّذي صَارَ لَنَا مِنْ عِنْدِ اللهِ حِكْمَةً وَبِرًّا وتَقْدِيسًا وَفِدَاء، لِيَتِمَّ مَا هُوَ مَكْتُوب: «مَنْ يَفْتَخِرْ فَلْيَفْتَخِرْ بِالرَّبّ!».

God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong
First Letter to the Corinthians 01/26-31/:”Consider your own call, not many of you were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, things that are not, to reduce to nothing things that are, so that no one might boast in the presence of God. He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption,in order that, as it is written, ‘Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.’”

قَالَ لَهُ يَسُوع: «إِنْ شِئْتُ أَنْ يَبْقَى حَتَّى أَجِيء، فَمَاذَا لَكَ؟ أَنْتَ، ٱتْبَعْنِي
إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا21/من20حتى25/:”إِلتَفَتَ بُطْرُس، فَرَأَى التِّلْمِيذَ الَّذي كَانَ يَسُوعُ يُحِبُّهُ يَتْبَعُهُمَا، وهُوَ الَّذي مَالَ عَلى صَدْرِ يَسُوعَ وَقْتَ العَشَاءِ وقَالَ لَهُ: يَا رَبّ، مَنْ هُوَ الَّذي يُسْلِمُكَ. فَلَمَّا رَآهُ بُطْرُسُ قَالَ لِيَسُوع: «يَا رَبّ، وهذَا، مَا يَكُونُ لَهُ؟». قَالَ لَهُ يَسُوع: «إِنْ شِئْتُ أَنْ يَبْقَى حَتَّى أَجِيء، فَمَاذَا لَكَ؟ أَنْتَ، ٱتْبَعْنِي!». وشَاعَتْ بَيْنَ الإِخْوَةِ هذِهِ الكَلِمَة، وهِيَ أَنَّ ذلِكَ التِّلْمِيذَ لا يَمُوت. لكِنَّ يَسُوعَ لَمْ يَقُلْ إِنَّهُ لا يَمُوت، بَلْ: إِنْ شِئْتُ أَنْ يَبْقَى حَتَّى أَجِيء، فَمَاذَا لَكَ. هذَا التِّلْمِيذُ هُوَ الشَّاهِدُ عَلى هذِهِ الأُمُور، وهُوَ الَّذي دَوَّنَهَا، ونَحْنُ نَعْلَمُ أَنَّ شَهَادَتَهُ حَقّ. وصَنَعَ يَسُوعُ أُمُورًا أُخْرَى كَثِيْرَة، لَوْ كُتِبَتْ وَاحِدًا فَوَاحِدًا، لَمَا أَظُنُّ أَنَّ العَالَمَ نَفْسَهُ يَسَعُهَا أَسْفَارًا مَكْتُوبَة.”

Jesus said to him, ‘If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? Follow me!’
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 21/20-25/:”Peter turned and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them; he was the one who had reclined next to Jesus at the supper and had said, ‘Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?’When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, ‘Lord, what about him?’Jesus said to him, ‘If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? Follow me!’So the rumour spread in the community that this disciple would not die. Yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but, ‘If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you?’ This is the disciple who is testifying to these things and has written them, and we know that his testimony is true. But there are also many other things that Jesus did; if every one of them were written down, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.”

Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.’
First Letter to the Corinthians 01/26-31/:”Consider your own call, not many of you were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, things that are not, to reduce to nothing things that are, so that no one might boast in the presence of God.
