The Preaching of Luke
1. Because many have desired to write the history of those works that we are familiar with, 2. according to that which they delivered to us, those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the Word, 3. it seemed (good) also to me because I have attended carefully to all of them that I should write everything down in its order for you noble Tawpeela, 4. that you may know the truth of the words that you were taught by.
¶5. In the days of Herodus the malka of Yehuda, there was a certain priest whose name was Zakharyah, from the order of the house of Awiya, and his wife (was descended) from the daughters of Ahron-- her name was Elishwa. 6. And both of them were zadiqin [righteous] before Allaha and walked in all the commandments and in the righteousness of Mar-YHWH without blame. 7. But they did not have a son because Elishwa was barren, and both of them were many in their days. 8. And it came to pass while he was serving as a priest in the order of his ministry before Allaha, 9. in the custom of the priesthood, it was his turn to place the incense. And he entered into the temple of Mar-YHWH. 10. And all the crowds of the people would pray outside at the time of the incense. 11. And a malaka of Mar-YHWH who stood at the right of the altar of incense appeared to him-- to Zakharyah. 12. And when Zakharyah saw him he was dumbfounded and fear fell upon him. 13. And the malaka said to him,
"Do not have fear Zakharyah,
because your prayer has been heard
and your wife Elishwa will bear you a son,
and you will call his name Yukhanan.
14. And you will have joy and gladness
and many will rejoice at his birth.
15. For he will be great before Mar-YHWH.
And he will not drink shakra [strong drink] and wine,
and he will be filled with the Rukha d'Qudsha
while he is in the womb of his mother.
16. And he will turn many of the sons of Israel to Mar-YHWH Allahuon [their Allaha].
17. And he will go before Him in the Rukha and in the might of Eliyah the prophet, that he might
turn the heart of the fathers unto the children,
and those that are not obedient to the knowledge of the just,
and he will prepare a perfect people for Mar-YHWH."
18. And Zakharyah said to the malaka, "How should I understand this, for I'm an elderly man and my wife, she is many in her days?" 19. And the malaka answered and said to him, "Ena-na Gawriel who stands before Allaha, and I have been sent to speak with you and to declare these things. 20. Now you will be dumb and you will not be able to speak until the day that these things happen, because you did not believe these my words which will be fulfilled in their time." 21. And the people were standing and waiting for Zakharyah and were wondering about his delay in the temple. 22. And when Zakharyah came out he was not able to speak with them. And they understood that he saw a vision in the temple. And he was repeatedly making signs to them but remained dumb. 23. And when the days of his service were fulfilled, he went to his house. 24. And it happened from after those days Elishwa his wife conceived. And she had hidden herself (for) five months and she said, 25. "Mar-YHWH has done these things for me in the days that He looked on me to take away my reproach that was among the sons of men."
¶26. And in the sixth month, the malaka Gawriel was sent from the presence of Allaha to Galeela to the city whose name is Nasrath 27. to a virgin who was betrothed to a man whose name was Yosip from the house of Dawid. And the name of the virgin (was) Maryam. 28. And the malaka came to her and said to her,
"Shlam to you full of grace.
Maran is with you,
blessed among women."
29. But when she saw (him) she was disturbed at his saying and was wondering, "What is this greeting?" 30. And the malaka said to her,
"Do not be afraid Maryam,
for you have found grace with Allaha.
31. For behold, you will receive conception and bear a son and you will call his name Yeshua.
32. This one will be great and will be called the Son of the Highest,
and Mar-YHWH Allaha will give to him the throne of Dawid his father.
33. And he will reign over the house of Yaqub forever,
and there will not be an end to his kingdom."
34. Maryam said to the malaka, "How can this be, for a man has not known me?" 35. The malaka answered and said to her,
"The Rukha d'Qudsha will come
and the power of the Highest will rest upon you.
Because of this, he who is to be born of you is holy
and will be called the Son of Allaha.
36. And behold, Elishwa your kinswoman
is also pregnant (with) a son in her old age.
And this is the sixth month to her,
she who was called barren.
37. Because not anyhing is impossible for Allaha."
38. Maryam said,
"Behold, I (am) the handmaid of Mar-YHWH.
Let it be to me according to your word."
And the malaka departed from her presence.
¶39. And Maryam arose in them-- in those days-- and went quickly to a tuora, to a city of Yehuda. 40. And she entered the house of Zakharyah and greeted Elishwa. 41. And it happened that when Elishwa heard the greeting of Maryam, the infant in her womb leaped, and Elishwa was filled with the Rukha d'Qudsha. 42. And she cried out with a loud voice and said to Maryam,
"Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb!
43. How did this happen to me that
the mother of Mari comes to me?
44. For behold, when the sound of your greeting fell upon my ears,
the infant in my womb leaped with a great joy.
45. And blessings to she who believed,
because there will be fulfillment to those things that were spoken to her in the presence of Mar-YHWH."
46. And Maryam said,
"My soul magnifies Mar-YHWH,
47. and ruokhi [my spirit] has rejoiced in Allaha my Savior.
48. Because He has looked at the meekness of his handmaid, for behold,
from now (on) all generations will give to me blessings.
49. Because He who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is His Name.
50. And His mercy for ages and generations (is) upon those who fear Him.
51. He has accomplished victory with his arm
and has scattered the proud in the thought of their hearts.
52. He has cast down the mighty from the seats
and exalted the meek.
53. He has satisfied the hungry (with) good things,
and the wealthy He has dismissed empty-handed.
54. He has helped his servant Israel
and He has remembered his mercy.
55. As He spoke with our fathers,
with Awraham and with his seed forever."
¶56. And Maryam remained with Elishwa about three months, and then she returned to her home.
¶57. Now the time that she bear came to her, Elishwa, and she bore a son. 58. And her neighbors and her relatives heard that Allaha had increased His mercy towards her, and they were rejoicing with her.
¶59. And it happened on the eighth day they came to circumcise the boy and they were calling him by the name of his father Zakharyah. 60. And his mother answered and said to them, "Not so, rather he will be called Yukhanan." 61. And they said to her, "There is no man in your clan who is called by this name." 62. And they made signs to his father as to what he desired to name him. 63. And he asked for a writing tablet, and wrote and said, "Yukhanan is his name." And everyone marveled. 64. And immediately his mouth and his tongue was opened and he spoke and barek [blessed] Allaha. 65. And fear came upon all their neighbors. And in all the tuora of Yehuda these things were spoken. 66. And all who heard were thinking in their hearts and saying, "What indeed will this boy be?" And the hand of Mar-YHWH was with him.
¶67. And his father Zakharyah was filled (with) the Rukha d'Qudsha and he prophesied and said,
68. "Blessed is Mar-YHWH, the Allaheh of Israel
who has visited His people
and wrought purqana [redemption/deliverance] to it.
69. And He has raised up a horn of purqana for us
in the house of Dawid His servant.
70. As He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets who were from (of) old,
71. that He would save us from our enemies
and from the hand of all who hate us.
72. And He has shown His mercy to our fathers
and has remembered His holy covenant,
73. and the oaths that He swore to Awraham our father that He would give to us,
74. that we would be delivered from the hand of our enemies,
and we might serve before Him without fear
75. all of our days in Allahaliness and righteousness.
76. And you child will be called the prophet of the Most High,
for you will go before the face of Mar-YHWH to prepare His way,
77. so that He might give the knowledge of life
to His people in the forgiveness of their sins.
78. By the kindness of the mercy of Allahan [our Allaha]
by which a ray from above will visit us,
79. to enlighten those who are in darkness,
and sit in the shadows of death,
that He might direct our feet in the way of shlama ."
80. And the boy grew and was strengthened in Rukha. And he was in the wilderness until the day of his appearance to Israel.
The Preaching of Luke
1. Now it happened in those days (that) a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that (the names of) all the people of his dominion should be written (down). 2. This census first happened during the governorship of Qurinius in Syria. 3. And everyone went to be registered in his own city. 4. And Yosip was also going up from Nasrath, a city of Galeela into Yehuda to the city of Dawid, which is called Beth-Lekhem, because he was from the house and from the clan of Dawid, 5. with Maryam his bride while (she was) pregnant, that they might be registered there. 6. And it happened that while they (were) there, her days of pregnancy were fulfilled. 7. And she bore a firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger because there was no room where they could lodge.
¶8. And shepherds were there in that region where they were lodging and keeping watch there at night over their flocks. 9. And behold, a malaka of Allaha came to them. And the tishbokhtheh [his glory] of Mar-YHWH shone upon them and they feared with a great fear. 10. And the malaka said to them, "Do not have fear, for behold, I announce hope to you, a great joy which will be to the whole world. For today is born to you in the city of Dawid the Paruqa [Deliverer] who is Mar-YHWH, the Meshikha. 12. And this is a sign to you: you will find an infant who is wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger." 13. And at that instant the great hosts of heaven appeared with the malaka while glorifying Allaha and saying,
"Tishbokhtha [glory/ praise] to Allaha in the highest,
and on earth shlama and good hope to the sons of men."
¶15. And it happened that when the malakas had departed from their presence to heaven, the shepherds talked amongst each other and said, "Let us journey unto Beth-Lekhem, and let us see this matter that has occurred as Mar-YHWH has made known to us." 16. And they hurriedly came and they found Maryam and Yosip and the infant who was lying in a manger. 17. And after they had seen him, they made known the matter that had been told to them concerning him-- concerning the boy. 18. And all who heard marveled at those things that had been spoken to them by the shepherds. 19. And Maryam kept and pondered all these words in her heart. 20. And those shepherds returned while glorifying and giving praise to Allaha concerning all that they had seen and heard as it was told to them.
¶21. And when eight days had passed (so) that the boy could be circumcised, they called his name Yeshua, as he had been called by the malaka before he was conceived in the womb.
¶22. And when the days (of) their purification were fulfilled according to the namusa of Moshe, they took him up to Urishlim to present him before Mar-YHWH, 23. according to what is written in the namusa of Mar-YHWH that
'every male who opens the womb
will be called a holy one of Mar-YHWH.'
24. and to give a sacrifice as is said in the namusa of Mar-YHWH,
'a pair of turtledoves
or two chicks of pigeons.'
25. Now there was a certain man in Urishlim; his name was Shimon, and this man was just and zadiq [righteous] and was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Rukha d'Qudsha was upon him. 26. And it had been said to him by the Rukha d'Qudsha that he would not see death until he saw the Meshikha of Mar-YHWH. 27. This man, he had come by the Rukha to the temple, and when his parents brought him-- the boy Yeshua-- to do on his behalf as is commanded in the namusa, 28. he received him upon his arms and barek [blessed] Allaha and said,
[does barek above mean 'prayed to'?]
29. "Now dismiss him your servant in shlama, Mari, according to your word.
30. For behold my eyes have seen your mercy,
31. that which you have prepared before the face of all nations,
32. a light for the revelation to the gentiles
and a shubkha [glory] to your people Israel."
¶33. And Yosip and his mother were marveling at these things that were spoken concerning him. 34. And Shimon barek [blessed] them and said to his mother Maryam,
"Behold this one is appointed
for the fall and for the rise of many in Israel,
and for a sign of dispute.
35. Now, and in your soul-- yours-- a spear will pass, so that the thoughts of the hearts [minds] of many might be revealed."
36. Now, and Kanna the prophetess, a daughter of Panuel from the tribe of Ashir, she was also advanced in her days. And she was seven years with her husband. She had lived from her virginity 37. and she was a widow for about eighty and four years. And she would not go out from the temple, and with fasting and with prayer she would serve by day and by night. 38. And she also stood up in that hour and gave thanks to Mar-YHWH and was speaking concerning him to everyone who was waiting for the purqanah [her deliverance] of Urishlim.
¶39. And when they had completed everything as (was) in the namusa of Mar-YHWH, they returned to Galeela to Nasrath their city. 40. And the boy would grow (up) and became strong in Rukha and was filled with wisdom, and the grace of Allaha was upon him.
¶41. And every year his people would go to Urishlim during the feast of the Petskha. 42. And when he was twelve years old they went up as they were accustomed to the feast. 43. And after the (feast) days were completed, they returned. But the boy Yeshua remained in Urishlim and Yosip and his mother did not know, 44. for they were hoping that he was with the people in their company. And after they had gone (on) a one-day journey, they searched for him among their relatives and among anyone who knew them, 45. and they did not find him. And they returned again to Urishlim and were seeking him, 46. and from after three days, they found him in the temple while sitting in the midst of the teachers, and he was listening to them and questioning them. 47. And all those who were listening to him were amazed by his wisdom and by his answers. 48. And when they saw him they were amazed, and his mother said to him,
"My son, why have you acted such towards us?
For behold, your father and I were searching for you with much anxiety."
49. He said to them,
"Why were you searching for me?
Did you not realize that it is necessary
for me to be in the house of Abbi?"
50. But they did not understand the saying that he had told them. 51. And he went down with them and came to Nasrath and was subject to them. And his mother kept all these words in her heart. 52. And Yeshua would grow in his stature and in his wisdom and in favor with Allaha and man.
The Preaching of Luke
1. Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, during the governorship of Pontius-Pilate in Yehuda, while Herodus was tetrarch in Galeela, and Peleepos his brother was tetrarch in Ituraea and in the region of Trachona, and Lusania was tetrarch of Abileena, 2. during the high-priesthood of Khanan and Qayapa, the Word of Allaha came upon Yukhanan, the son of Zakharyah, in the wilderness. 3. And (he) went into all the regions that surround the Yordanan while preaching the baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, 4-6. as it is written in the book of the words of Eshaya the prophet who said,
"A voice that cries in the wilderness,
'Prepare the way of Mar-YHWH,
and make straight the path in the plains for Allahan [our Allaha].
All the valleys will be filled
and all the tuoras and heights will be leveled.
And the rough will become smooth,
and the difficult land a plain.
And all flesh will see the life [salvation] of Allaha.'"
¶7. And he would say to the crowds, those who would come to him to be baptized,
"Offspring of vipers!
Who has warned you to flee from the wrath that is to come?
8. Therefore produce fruit that is worthy for repentance
and do not begin to say within yourselves that,
'We have Awraham (as a) father,'
for I say to you that from these rocks,
Allaha is able to raise up children to Awraham!
9. And behold, the axe is placed upon the root of the tree.
Every tree therefore that does not produce good fruit
will be cut down and will be thrown into the fire."
10. And the crowds would ask him and say, "What then should we do?" 11. He answered and said to them,
"He who has two coats,
let him give to he who does not have.
And he who has food,
let him do likewise."
12. And the tax collectors also came to be baptized and said to him, "Malpana, what should we do?" 13. And he said to them,
"Do not require anything more than what is commanded you to require." 14. And the soldiers would ask him and said, "What should we also do?" He said to them,
"Do not violence to man,
and do not accuse anyone.
And your wages is sufficient for you."
¶15. And while the people were thinking about Yukhanan and all were considering in their heart [mind] whether he was the Meshikha, 16. Yukhanan answered and said to them,
"Behold, I baptize you with water,
but he who is stronger than I will come after me,
he who I'm not worthy to loosen the straps of his sandals,
he will baptize you by the Rukha d'Qudsha and by fire.
17. He who holds a winnowing fan in his hand
and has cleansed his threshing floor,
he will gather the wheat into his granaries,
but the chaff he will burn in the fire that does not extinguish."
18. And he would also teach and declare many other things to the people.
¶19. And Herodus the tetrarch, because he was rebuked by Yukhanan on account of Herodia, the wife of his brother Pileepos, and on account of all the evils that he had done, 20. also added this above all these: that he locked Yukhanan away in prison.
¶21. Now it happened while he baptized all the people, and he also baptized Yeshua, and while he prayed heaven was opened. 22. And the Rukha d'Qudsha descended upon him in the likeness of the form of a dove, and a voice came from heaven that said,
"You are my beloved Son
in whom I'm pleased."
¶23. And Yeshua was about thirty years old and he was thought to be the son of Yosip, the son of Heli, 24. the son of Mattath the son of Lewi, the son of Malki, the son of Yani, the son of Yosip, 25. the son of Matta, the son of Amos, the son of Nakhum, the son of Khasli, the son of Nagi, the son of Maath, the son of Matath, the son of Shamei, the son of Yosip, the son of Yehuda, 27. the son of Yukhanan, the son of Rasa, the son of Zerubabel, the son of Shilathiel, the son of Neri, 28. the son of Malki, the son of Addi, the son of Qusam, the son of Almodad, the son of Ayir, 29. the son of Yoseh, the son of Eliazar, the son of Yoram, the son of Matitha, the son of Lewi, 30. the son of Shimon, the son of Yehuda, the son of Yosip, the son of Yonam, the son of Eliakim, 31. the son of Malia, the son of Manni, the son of Mattha, the son of Nathan, the son of Dawid, 32. the son of Aishi, the son of Obed, the son of Baz, the son of Salmon, the son of Nikhshon, 33. the son of Aminadab, the son of Aram, the son of Khisron, the son of Pares, the son of Yehuda, 34. the son of Yaqub, the son of Iskhaq, the son of Awraham, the son of Terakh, the son of Nakhor, 35. the son of Sarug, the son of Araw, the son of Palag, the son of Awar, the son of Shalakh, 36. the son of Qaynan, the son of Arpakshar, the son of Shem, the son of Nukh, the son of Lamakh, 37. the son of Mathushlakh, the son of Knokh, the son of Yared, the son of Mahlalaiel, the son of Qaynan, 38. the son of Anosh, the son of Sheth, the son of Adam, who (was) from Allaha.
The Preaching of Luke
1. Now while filled with the Rukha d'Qudsha, Yeshua returned from the Yordanan and the Rukha led him into the wilderness 2. (for) forty days that he might be tempted by Akelqartza. And he did not eat anything in those days, and when he had completed them, he hungered at the end.
¶3. And Akelqartza said to him, "If you are the Son of Allaha, say to these rocks that they should become bread." 4. Yeshua answered and said to him,
"It is written that,
'it is not by bread alone man should live,
rather, by every word of Allaha."
5. And Satana took him up to a high tuora and showed him all the kingdoms of the earth in a short period of time. 6. And Akelqartza said to him, "I will give to you all this authority and shubkheh [its glory] that is delivered to me, and I can give it to whomever I desire. 7. If therefore you prostrate yourself before me, all of it will be yours." 8. But Yeshua answered and said to him,
"It is written that,
'you should worship Mar-YHWH Allahak [your Allaha],
and you should serve Him alone.'"
9. And he brought him to Urishlim and placed him upon the edge of the temple and said to him, "If you are the Son of Allaha, cast yourself down from here to below, 10-11. for it is written that,
'He will command to His angels concerning you,
to keep watch over you,
and they will bear you upon their arms,
lest you dash your foot against a stone.'"
12. But Yeshua answered and said to him,
"It is said that,
'you should not test Mar-YHWH Allahak [your Allaha].'"
And when Akelqartza had finished all his temptations, he departed from his presence for a while.
¶14. And Yeshua returned in the power of the Rukha to Galeela, and the news concerning him went out into every region that was around them. 15. And he would teach in their assemblies and would be praised by every man.
¶16. And he came to Nasrath where he had been raised, and he entered into the assembly as he was accustomed on the day of the Shabbata and stood up to read. 17. And the scroll of the prophet Eshaya was given to him, and Yeshua opened the scroll and found the place where it is written,
18-19. "Of Mar-YHWH Ruokheh [His Spirit] is upon me and because of this,
He has anointed me to declare hope to the poor,
and He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted
and to preach release to the captives
and sight to the blind,
and to free those (who are) oppressed with forgiveness,
and to preach the acceptable year of Mar-YHWH."
20. And he rolled up the scroll and gave it to the minister and went (and) sat down. And all of those in the assembly-- their eyes were fixed on him. 21. And he began to say to them that,
"This Scripture in your ears is fulfilled today."
22. And all of them were testifying about him and were marveling at the words of blessing that were proceeding from his mouth, and they were saying, "Is this not the son of Yosip?" 23. Yeshua said to them,
"Perhaps you might tell me this parable,
'physician heal yourself,'
and all that we have heard that you did in Capurnakhum,
do also here in your city.'"
24. And he said,
"Amain I say to you that
there is no prophet who is accepted in his own city.
25. For the truth I say to you that
there were many widows (in) the house of Israel
in the days of the prophet Eliyah
when the heavens were shut up three years and six months
and a great famine was in all the land.
26. And Eliyah was not sent to one of them except
to Sarpath of Tsidon to a woman, a widow.
27. And there were many lepers (in) the house of Israel
in the days of the prophet Elisha,
and not one of them was cleansed except
for Naaman the Aramean."
28. And when they had heard these things, those who were in the assembly-- all of them-- were filled with anger. 29. And they rose up (and) cast him outside of the city and they brought him up to the ridge of a tuora, that which their city was built upon, to cast him down from a cliff. 30. But he passed between them and departed.
¶31. And he went down to Capurnakhum, a city of Galeela, and he would teach them on the Shabba [Sabbaths]. 32. And they were astonished at his teaching because his message had authority. 33. And in the assembly there was a man who had in him a Rukha of an unclean shada, and he cried out in a loud voice 34. and said, "Leave me alone! What have we to do with each other, Yeshua the Nasraya? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are. You are the Holy One of Allaha!" 35. And Yeshua rebuked him and said,
"Shut your mouth
and come out from him!"
And the shada threw him down in the midst and departed from him, though he did not harm him at all. 36. And a great amazement seized every man, and they were speaking with one another and saying, "What indeed is this message, that with authority and with power he commands unclean Rukha and they depart?" 37. And the news went out concerning him in all regions that surrounded them.
¶38. And when Yeshua departed from the assembly, he entered into the house of Shimon. And the mother-in-law of Shimon was afflicted with a great fever, and they entreated from him for her (sake). 39. And he stood over her and rebuked her fever and it left her. And immediately she arose and was ministering to them.
¶40. And (at) the setting of the sun, all those who had sick, who were ill with various sicknesses, brought them to him and he would lay his hand upon them one at a time, and he would heal them. 41. And also shada were departing from many, while crying out and saying that, "You are the Meshikha, the Son of Allaha!" And he would rebuke them and he would not allow them to say that they knew that he was the Meshikha. 42. And on the morning of the day he departed (and) went to a deserted place, and the crowds were seeking him, and they came up to him and held tightly to him lest he leave from their presence. 43. And Yeshua said to them that,
"It is necessary for me to also preach to other cities the kingdom of Allaha,
because for this (reason) I have been sent."
44. And he would preach in the assemblies of Galeela.
The Preaching of Luke
1. Now it happened (that) while the crowds gathered around him to hear the Word of Allaha and he was standing at the side of the lake of Genesar, 2. he saw two ships that were docked at the side of the lake, and the fishermen that had disembarked from them, and they were washing their nets. 3. And one of them belonged to Shimon (who is) Keepa. And Yeshua embarked (and) sat in it and asked that they take him a little way from dry land on the water. And he would sit and teach from the ship to the crowds. 4. And after he had stopped talking, he said to Shimon,
"Row to deep water
and cast your nets to fish."
5. Shimon answered and said to him, "Rabbi, we have labored all night and we have not caught anything! But at your word, I will cast the nets." 6. And after they did this, they caught very many fish and their nets were tearing. 7. And they beckoned to their companions who were in another ship that they come help them. And after they came, they filled them-- both ships-- so much so that they were near to sinking. 8. And when Shimon Keepa saw (this), he fell before the feet of Yeshua and said to him, "I beseech you Mari, depart from me for I (am) a sinful man." 9. For amazement had seized him and all who were with him because of that catch of fish that they had caught. 10. And likewise also Yaqub and Yukhanan the sons of Zawdee who were partners with Shimon. But Yeshua said to Shimon,
"Do not have fear.
From now (on) the sons of men will be caught unto life."
11. And they brought those ships to land and left everything and followed after him.
¶12. And when Yeshua was in one of the cities, a man came who was completely covered with leprosy. He saw Yeshua and fell upon his face and was beseeching from him and he said to him, "Mari, if you desire you are able to cleanse me." 13. And Yeshua stretched forth his hand (and) touched him and said to him,
"I do desire.
And his leprosy departed from him at once. 14. And he commanded him that,
"Do not tell (this) to anyone.
Rather, go show yourself to the kahna
and offer a qorbana for your purification
as Moshe commanded for their testimony."[JM has merely "offer for"-- how come?]
¶15. And the news concerning him went out all the more, and a large crowd was gathered to hear from him and to be healed from their diseases. 16. But he had departed into the wilderness and was praying.
¶17. And it happened that on one of (those) days while Yeshua was teaching, Pharisees and the teachers of the namusa who had come from all the villages of Galeela and of Yehuda and of Urishlim were sitting there. And the power of Mar-YHWH was there to heal them. 18. And men brought a certain man who was a paralytic on a pallet and were beseeching that they might bring him in to place him before him. 19. And when they could not find how they might bring him in because of the multitude of people, they went up to the roof and let him down on his pallet from the ceiling into the midst before Yeshua. 20. And when Yeshua saw their faith, he said to that paralytic,
"Man, you are forgiven your sins."
21. And the Sapra and Pharisees began reasoning and saying,
"Who is this (man) who speaks blasphemy?
Who is able to forgive sins, except Allaha alone?"
22. But Yeshua knew their thoughts and answered and said to them,
"Why are you reasoning in your hearts?
23. Which is easier to say,
'You are forgiven your sins,' or to say,
'Arise (and) walk'?
24. But that you might know that it is lawful for the Son of Man to forgive sins on earth,"
he said to the paralytic,
"I say to you, arise,
take up your pallet,
and go to your house."
25. And he arose immediately before their eyes and took his pallet and went to his house while glorifying Allaha. 26. And amazement seized everyone and they were glorifying Allaha and they were filled with fear and said that, "We have seen wonders today!"
¶27. After these things, Yeshua went out and saw a tax-collector whose name was Lewi who was sitting at the house of customs, and said to him,
"Come (follow) after me."
28. And he arose, left everything, and went (and followed) after him. 29. And Lewi made a great feast for him in his house, and there was a large crowd of tax-collectors and of others who were reclining with them. 30. And the Sapra and Pharisees were murmuring and they said to his talmida, "Why are you eating and drinking among tax-collectors and sinners?" 31. And Yeshua answered and said to them,
"The physician is not needed by the healthy,
rather by those who are severely ill.
32. I did not come to call the zadiqa,
but the sinners to repentance."
¶33. And they said to him, "Why do the talmida of Yukhanan (and) even (the talmida) of the Pharisees fast and pray continually, but yours are eating and drinking?" 34. But he said to them,
"You are not able to make the sons of the wedding-feast fast
as long as the bridegroom is with them.
35. But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them.
Then they will fast in those days."
36. And he told them a parable that,
"No man tears a piece of cloth from a new garment
and places it on a used garment,
lest he tear the used that is from the new,
and the new does not make whole the piece of cloth.
37. And no man puts new wine
into used wineskins
lest the new wine should burst the wineskins
and that wine be poured out and the wineskins (be) destroyed.
38. Instead they put new wine into new wineskins,
and both of them are preserved.
39. And no man drinks old wine
and immediately desires the new (wine),
for he says 'The old is delicious.'"
The Preaching of Luke
1. Now it happened on the Shabbata while Yeshua was walking in the fields (that) his talmida were plucking heads of grain and rubbing them in their hands and eating. 2. And some of the Pharisees said to them, "Why do you (do) the thing that is not lawful to do on the Shabbata?" 3. Yeshua answered and said to them,
"And have you not read this,
the thing that Dawid did when he hungered,
he and those who were with him?
4. How he entered into the house of Allaha
and he took the bread on the table of Mar-YHWH (and) ate it
and he gave to those who were with him,
that which was not lawful for (anyone) to eat except only the kahna?"
5. And he said to them that,
"The Son of Man is the Lord of the Shabbata." [?: is Yeshua referring to only himself, or is it: The son of man is the lord of the Shabbata, i.e. people in general-- including Dawid-- are masters of the Shabbata?]
¶6. And it happened on another Shabbata he entered the assembly and was teaching and there was there a man whose right hand was withered. 7. And the Sapra and Pharisees were watching him whether (or not) he would heal on the Shabbata, that they might be able to accuse him. 8. But he knew their thoughts. He said to that man, his whose hand was withered,
in the midst of the assembly."
And when he arose and came 9. Yeshua said to them,
"I ask you what is lawful on the Shabbata to do:
good, or evil,
to make a soul to live, or to destroy it?"
10. And he stared at them, at all of them, and said to him,
"Stretch out your hand."
And he stretched it out and his hand was restored like his other (hand). 11. And they were filled with bitterness and were speaking with one another about what they should do to him-- to Yeshua.
¶12. And it happened in those days (that) Yeshua went out to a tuora to pray, and he had spent the night there in the prayers of Allaha. 13. And when the day broke, he called his talmida and chose from them twelve, those whom he named Shelikha, them (being) 14. Shimon-- he whom he named Keepa-- and Andrawus his brother, and Yaqub and Yukhanan and Pileepos and Bar-Tulmay [the son of Tulmay] 15. and Matti and Tooma and Yaqub the son of Khalpai and Shimon who is called the Zealot, 16. and Yehuda the son of Yaqub and Yehuda Skaryota, he who was the betrayer.
¶17. And Yeshua came down among them and stood in the plain, and a large crowd of his talmida and a multitude of crowds of people from all of Yehuda and from Urishlim and from the coast of the sea of Tsur and of Tsidon 18. who had come to hear his words (was there). And he healed them from their illnesses and those who were afflicted by unclean Rukha, and they were healed. 19. And all of the crowds were beseeching to touch him, for power was going out from him and he was healing all of them.
¶20. And he lifted up his eyes to his talmida and said,
"Blessed are you (who are) poor,
because yours is the Kingdom of Allaha.
21. Blessed are you, they who are now hungry,
because you will be satisfied.
Blessed are you, those who are now weeping,
because you will laugh.
22. Blessed are you when the sons of men hate you and separate you and revile you and cast out your name as evil for the sake of the Son of Man.
23. In that day rejoice and leap for joy
for your treasure in heaven is great,
for likewise their fathers had done to the prophets.
24. But woe to you (who are) rich,
for you have received your comfort.
25. Woe to you (who are) satisfied,
because you will hunger.
Woe to you those who are now laughing,
because you will weep and you will mourn.
26. Woe to you while it happens: the sons of men speak good (things) about you,
for likewise their fathers had done to the false prophets.
27. But I say to you, those who hear,
love your enemies
and do good (things) to those who hate you,
28. and bless those who curse you
and pray for those who take you with violence.
29. And to him who strikes you on your cheek,
offer to him the other.
And from him who takes your cloak,
do not keep back also your coat.
30. To everyone who asks you,
give to him,
and from him who takes your (property),
do not demand it back.
31. And as you desire that the sons of men do to you,
you also do likewise to them.
32. For if you love those who love you,
what is your blessing?
For even sinners, they love those who love them.
33. And if you do good to those who do good to you,
what is your blessing?
For even sinners do likewise.
34. And if you lend to he who you expect to be repaid by him,
where is your blessing?
For even the sinners lend to sinners that they might likewise be repaid.
35. But love your enemies,
and do good to them,
and lend and do not cut off the hope of man,
and great will be your reward,
and you will be the sons of the Most High.
Because He is pleasant to the evil and to the cruel,
36. therefore be merciful,
as your Father is also merciful.
37. Do not judge,
and you will not be judged.
Do not condemn,
and you will not be condemned.
and you will be released.
and it will be given to you,
in good measure and pressed down and abundant it will pour into your robe.
For in that measure-- the measure with which you measure--
it will be measured to you."
39. And he was speaking a parable to them:
"Why, are the blind able to lead the blind?
Would not both of them fall into a ditch?
40. There is no talmida who is greater than his master.
For everyone who is perfect should be as his master.
41. And why do you see the straw that is in the eye of your brother,
but the beam that is in your eye is not seen by you?
42. Or how are you able to say to your brother,
'My brother, allow (me to) take the straw out from your eye'
for behold, the beam that is in your eye-- your own-- is not seen by you?
First take out the beam from your eye
and then you will be able to see to
take out the straw from the eye of your brother.
43. There is not a good tree
which produces bad fruit.
Also, no bad tree
produces good fruit.
44. For every tree is known by its fruit.
For they gather not figs from thorns
nor (do) they gather grapes from a thornbush.
45. A good man
from the good treasures that are in his heart
brings forth good things,
and an evil man
from the evil treasures that are in his heart
brings forth evil things.
For from the abundance of the heart the lips speak.
46. Why do you call to me, 'Mari, Mari!'
and you do not the thing that I say?
47. Every man who comes to me and hears my words and does them,
I will describe to you what he is likened to.
48. He is likened to a man who built a house
and dug and went deep and placed its foundations upon rock.
And when a flood occurred,
the flood beat against that house and was not able to shake it.
For its foundation was placed on rock.
49. And he who hears but does not is likened to
a man who built his house on soil without a foundation.
And when the river beat upon it,
it fell at once, and of that house, its fall was great.
The Preaching of Luke
1. And when he completed all the sayings for the hearing of the people, Yeshua entered Capurnakhum. 2. And the servant of a certain centurion was badly ill, one who was dear to him, and he was close to dying. 3. And he heard about Yeshua and sent to him elders of the Yehudeans and was beseeching from him so that he might come (and) give life to his servant. 4. And when they came to Yeshua they were beseeching from him earnestly and saying,
"He is worthy that you should do this (thing) for him,
5. for he loves our people and he has also built an assembly for us."
6. And Yeshua went with them, and when he was not very far from the house, the centurion sent his friends to him and said to him,
"Mari, do not trouble yourself, for I'm not worthy that you should enter under my roof,
7. because that I'm not worthy that I should come to you.
But speak with a word and my boy will be healed.
8. For I also am a man who is a servant under authority.
And there are soldiers under my hand,
and I say to this one 'Go!'
and he goes,
and to another, 'Come!'
and he comes,
and to my servant, 'Do this!'
and he does (it)."
9. And when Yeshua heard these things, he marveled at him and he turned and said to the crowd who had come following him,
"I say to you that not even in Israel have I found faith like this."
10. And those who were sent returned to the house and they found that servant who was ill while made whole.
¶11. And it happened that on the day that followed, he went to the city whose name is Nayn, and his talmida and a large crowd were with him. 12. And when he approached the gate of the city he saw a dead man while being escorted who was the only son of his mother, and she his mother was a widow. And a large crowd of the sons of the city (was) with her. 13. And Yeshua saw her and had compassion on her and said to her,
"Do not cry."
14. And he went (and) touched the coffin, and those who were carrying it stood (still). And he said,
I say to you arise!"
15. And that dead man sat up and began to speak, and he gave him to his mother. 16. And fear seized all men and they were glorifying Allaha and saying that,
"A great prophet has arisen among us,
and Allaha has visited his people!"
17. And this report concerning him went out in all Yehuda and in all the regions that were around them.
¶18. And his talmida reported all these things to Yukhanan. 19. And Yukhanan called two of his talmida and he sent them to Yeshua and said, "Are you he that is to come or should we wait for another?" 21. And they came to Yeshua and said to him,
"Yukhanan the baptizer sent us to you and said, '(Are) you he that is to come or should we wait for another?'" 21. And in that same hour, he healed many of their sickness and of plagues and of evil Rukha, and he gave sight to many blind. 22. And Yeshua answered and said to them,
"Go tell Yukhanan everything that you have seen and heard,
that the blind see
and the lame walk
and the lepers are cleansed
and the deaf hear
and the dead arise
and the poor are given hope.
23. And blessed is he who is not offended at me."
¶24. And when the talmida of Yukhanan left, Yeshua began to say to the crowds concerning Yukhanan,
"What did you go out into the desert to see--
a reed that is shaken by the wind?
25. And if not, what did you go out to see--
a man clothed with soft garments?
Behold, those who are in expensive clothes and in luxuries,
they are in the house of malka.
26. And if not, what did you go out to see--
Yes, I say to you, and greater than a prophet.
27. This is he about whom is written that,
'Behold, I send my messenger before your face,
that he might prepare the way before you.'
28. I say to you that
there is no prophet among those begotten of women who
is greater than Yukhanan the baptizer.
But the least in the Kingdom of Allaha is greater than he.
29. And all the people who heard, even the tax-collectors,
Allaha declared (to be) just
for they had been baptized with the baptism of Yukhanan.
30. But the Pharisees and the Sapra
rejected in themselves the will of Allaha
because they were not baptized by him.
¶31. To what therefore can I liken the men of this generation?
And to what are they like?
32. They are like boys who sit in the marketplace
and cry out to their companions and say,
'We have sung to you,
and you did not dance,
and we have mourned for you,
and you did not weep.'
33. For Yukhanan the baptizer
came not eating bread nor drinking wine and you say,
'There is a shada in him.'
34. The Son of Man
came eating and drinking and you say,
'Behold a gluttonous man
and (one) drinking wine
and a friend of tax-collectors and sinners.'
35. And wisdom is justified by all its works."
¶36. Now one of the Pharisees came (and) entreated from him to eat with him. And he entered the house of that Pharisee (and) reclined. 37. And a sinful woman was there in that city, and when she learned that he was reclining in the house of the Pharisee, she took an alabaster vase of ointment 38. and stood behind (him) and she was crying at his feet. And she began washing his feet with her tears and wiping them with the hair of her head. And she was kissing his feet and anointing (them with) ointment. 39. And when that Pharisee who had invited him saw, he reasoned within himself and said, "If this (man) was a prophet, he would realize who she is and what her reputation (is), that she is a sinner, that woman who touched him." 40. And Yeshua answered and said to him,
I have something to say to you."
And he said to him, "Speak, Rabbi." Yeshua said to him,
41. "There were two debtors to a certain creditor.
One had owed him five hundred denarii,
and the other fifty denarii.
And because they had no way to repay,
he forgave both of them.
Therefore, which of them will love him more?"
43. Shimon answered and said, "I suppose that he that was forgiven the most." Yeshua said to him,
"You have judged correctly."
44. And he turned to that woman and said to Shimon,
"Do you see this woman?
I entered into your house,
(and) you did not supply water for my feet,
but this (woman) has washed my feet with her tears,
and she has dried them with her hair.
45. You did not kiss me,
but behold this (woman), she has not ceased to kiss my feet from when I entered.
46. You did not anoint my head (with) oil,
but this (woman) has anointed my feet with oil of incense.
47. For I say this to you:
because her sins that are forgiven her are many,
she has loved much.
But he that is forgiven little,
him loves little."
48. And he said to that woman,
"You are forgiven your sins."
49. And those who were reclining began saying among themselves, "Who is this who even forgives sins?" 50. But Yeshua said to that woman,
"Your faith has given you life.
Go in shlama ."
The Preaching of Luke
1. And it happened after these things (that) Yeshua was going around in the cities and in the villages and was preaching and declaring the Kingdom of Allaha. And with him (were) his twelve, 2. and those women who were healed of sicknesses and of evil Rukha, Maryam who is called Magdalitha, she who seven shadiyn [shada] had gone out from whom. 3. And Yokan the wife of Kuza the steward of Herodus and Shushan and many others, these were ministering to them from their wealth.
¶4. And a large crowd was gathering from all the cities, and while they were coming to him, he said in a parable,
5. "A sower went out to sow his seed,
and as he sowed there were some that fell on the side of the road
and was trampled and a bird ate it.
6. And other (seed) fell on rock,
and at once it sprang up, and because it had not moisture it withered.
7. And others fell into a thorny place
and thorns sprang up with it and choked it.
8. And others fell on good and pleasant earth
and sprang up and produced fruit a hundred fold."
When he had said these things, he cried out that,
"He who has ears to hear,
let him hear!"
¶9. And his talmida asked him, "What is (the meaning of) this parable?" 10. And he said to them,
"For to you it is given to know the mystery of the Kingdom of Allaha.
But to the rest (of) them it is spoken in parables, because
'though they see,
they will not see,
and though they hear,
they will not comprehend.'
¶11. Now this is (the meaning of) the parable.
The seed is the Word of Allaha.
12. And those (seeds) that (fell) upon the side of the road
are those who hear the Word,
but the enemy comes (and) takes the Word from their heart so that they might not believe and live.
13. And they that (fell) upon rock,
they are those that when they heard the Word they received it with joy,
but they have no root.
Rather their faith is for a while,
and in the time of trial they are offended.
14. And that which fell into a thorny place,
they are those who hear the Word and with the care and wealth and lusts of the world are choked, and they do not produce fruit.
15. And that (seed) which (fell) on good ground,
they are those who with an honest and good heart,
hear and retain the Word and bear fruit with patience.
¶16. No man lights a lamp and covers it with a vessel
or places it under the bed,
rather he places it on a lamp stand so that all who enter will see its light.
17. For there is not anything that is hidden
that will not be revealed,
nor that is concealed
that will not be known and come out openly.
18. Take heed how you hear.
For he who has,
it will be given him.
And he who does not have,
even that which he thinks that he has will be taken from him."
¶19. Now his mother and his brothers came to him, and they were not able to speak with him because of the crowds. 20. And they said to him, "Your mother and your brothers are standing outside and desire to see you." 21. But he answered and said to them,
"These are my mother and my brothers:
those who hear the Word of Allaha and do it."
¶22. And it happened (that) on one of (those) days Yeshua went up (and) sat in a ship, he and his talmida. And he said to them,
"Let us cross over to the other side of the lake."
23. And while they journeyed, Yeshua was asleep. And there was a storm of wind on the lake and the boat was close to sinking. 24. And they came and aroused him and said to him, "Rabban, Rabban, we are perishing!" And he arose and rebuked the wind and the waves of the sea, and they ceased and it became calm. 25. And he said to them,
"Where is your faith?"
And they were afraid (and) they were amazed and they said to one another, "Who indeed is this (man) who even commands to the Rukha [wind] and to the tempest and to the sea and they obey him?" 26. And they journeyed and came to the land of the Gadarenes which is on the other side opposite of Galeela. 27. And when he went out onto land, a certain man from the city caught up to him in whom had been a deewa for a long time. And he would not wear clothing and he would not dwell in a house, but in the cemetery. 28. And when he saw Yeshua, he cried out and fell down before him and in a loud voice said, "What have we to do with each other, Yeshua, the Son of the Most High Allaha? I beseech you, do not torment me." 29. For Yeshua was commanding to him-- to the unclean Rukha-- to go out from the man. For much time had passed since he was held captive by him. And he was bound with chains and he was restrained with bonds, but he would break his bonds and would be driven by the shada into the wilderness. 30. And Yeshua asked him,
"What is your name?"
He said to him, "Legion," because many deewa had entered into him. 31. And they were beseeching from him that he would not command them to go to the abyss. 32. And there was there a herd of numerous swine that was feeding on the tuora, and they were beseeching him to permit them to enter into the swine. And he permitted them. 33. And the shada went out from the man and entered in the swine. And that whole herd rushed to a cliff and fell into the lake and they drowned. 34. And when the herders saw what happened, they fled and reported it in the city and in the villages. 35. And men came out to see what happened, and they came to Yeshua and found that man shadohy [whose shada] had departed, dressed and sober and sitting at the feet of Yeshua, and they were afraid. 36. And those who had seen (it) reported to them how he healed that possessed man. 37. And all the crowds of Gadarenes, they were beseeching from him to depart from their presence because a great fear had seized them. And Yeshua went up into the ship and returned from their presence. 38. And that man from whom the shada went out was beseeching him that he might remain with him, but Yeshua sent him away and said to him,
39. "Return to your house
and report what Allaha has done for you."
And he went and was preaching in all the city the thing that Yeshua had done for him.
¶40. And when Yeshua returned, a large crowd received him, for all were looking for him. 41. And a certain man whose name was Yorash, a chief of the assembly, fell before the feet of Yeshua and was beseeching from him that he might enter his house, 42. for he had an only daughter about twelve years old, and she was about to die. And while Yeshua was going with him, a large crowd was pressing against him.
¶43. And a certain woman whose blood was flowing (for) twelve years, who had spent all her money among the doctors, but was not able to be healed by man, 44. she approached from behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately the flow of her blood stopped. 45. And Yeshua said,
"Who touched me?"
And while all were denying (it), Shimon Keepa and those with him said to him, "Rabban, the crowds are pressing and thronging you, and you say, 'Who touched me?'?" 46. And he said,
"Someone touched me,
for I know that power went out of me."
47. And when that woman saw that she had not escaped his notice, she came while trembling and fell (and) worshipped him and said before all the people for what purpose she touched (him) and how immediately she was healed. 48. And Yeshua said to her,
"Have courage, my daughter.
Your faith has given you life.
Go in shlama ."
¶49. And while he was speaking, a man from the house of the ruler of the assembly came and said to him, "Your daughter, she has died. Do not trouble the Malpana." But Yeshua heard (it) and said to Abba of the young girl,
"Do not have fear.
Only believe and she will live."
51. And Yeshua came to the house and did not allow anyone to enter with him except Shimon and Yaqub and Yukhanan and Abba of the young girl and her mother. 52. And all were weeping and mourning over her, but Yeshua said,
"Do not cry,
for she is not dead,
but she sleeps."
53. And they were laughing at him because they knew that she had died. 54. And he put out everyone outside and took her by her hand and called her and said,
"Arise young girl!"
55. And Rukhah [her breath] returned and immediately she arose. And he commanded that they give her (something) to eat. 56. And her parents were astonished, and he warned them that they should not tell anyone what had happened.
The Preaching of Luke
1. And Yeshua called his twelve and gave to them power and authority over all shada and to heal sickness. 2. And he sent them to preach the Kingdom of Allaha and to heal the sick. 3. And he said to them,
"Do not take anything (with you) on the road,
neither a staff nor a wallet nor bread nor money,
nor should you have two coats.
4. And into whatever house that you enter,
remain there and depart from there.
5. And he who does not receive you,
when you depart from that city
shake off even the dust from your feet
for a testimony against them."
6. And the Shelikha departed and were going around in the villages and in the cities and were preaching hope and healing in every place.
¶7. And Herodus the tetrarch heard all the (things) that were done by their hands, and he was amazed because some men were saying that Yukhanan had risen from the dead. 8. And others were saying that Eliyah had appeared, and others that a prophet from the first prophets has arisen. 9. And Herodus said, "I have cut off the head of Yukhanan, but who is this (man), that about whom I hear these things?" And he had wanted to see him.
¶10. And when the Shelikha had returned, they reported to Yeshua everything that they did, and he took them privately to a deserted place of Beth-Saida. 11. And when the crowds realized (it), they went after him. And he received them and would speak with them about the Kingdom of Allaha. And those who had need for healing, he would heal.
¶12. And when the day began to wane, his talmida approached and said to him, "Dismiss the crowds that they may go to the villages around us and to the hamlets to dwell in them and to find food for themselves, because we are in a deserted place." 13. Yeshua said to them,
"You give them (something) to eat."
But they said, "We do not have more than five (loaves of) bread and two fish, unless we go and buy food for all this people!" 14. For there were about five thousand men. Yeshua said to them,
"Make them to sit down (in) groups,
fifty people in a group."
15. And the talmida did thus, and made all of them to sit. 16. And Yeshua took those five (loaves of) bread and the two fish and gazed into heaven and barek [blessed] (them), and broke and gave (them) to his talmida to set before the crowds. 17. And all of them ate and were satisfied. And they took up the fragments, (and) what was left over (was) twelve baskets.
¶18. And while he and his talmida with him prayed alone, he asked them and said,
"Who do the crowds say about me, that I am?"
19. They answered and said to him that, "(Some say) Yukhanan the baptizer, and others Eliyah, now and others (say) that a certain prophet from the first prophets has arisen." 20. He said to them,
"But you, who do you say that I am?"
Shimon answered and said, "The Meshikha of Allaha!" 21. And he reproved them and warned them that they should not tell this to anyone. 22. And he said to them that he, the Son of man, would suffer many things and (that) he would be rejected by the elders and rabbi-kahna and Sapra. And (that) they would kill him, and on the third day he would arise.
¶23. And he would say before everyone,
"He who desires to follow after me
should deny himself
and everyday take up his execution-stake
and follow after me.
24. For whoever desires to make his soul live,
will destroy it.
But whoever destroys his soul for my sake,
this one will make it live.
25. For what does (it) benefit a man who gains the whole world,
but destroys or loses his soul?
26. And whoever is ashamed of me (and) of my words,
the Son of Man will be ashamed of him
when he comes in the shubkha [glory] of his Father with His holy angels.
27. The truth I say to you that there are men who stand here
who will not taste death until they see the Kingdom of Allaha."
¶28. And it happened about eight days after these words that Yeshua took Shimon and Yaqub and Yukhanan and went up a tuora to pray. 29. And while he prayed, the appearance of his face was changed, and his clothes were whitened and shining. 30. And behold, two men were speaking with him who were Moshe and Eliyah, 31. who appeared in tishbokhtha [glory], and they were talking about his departure which was about to be fulfilled in Urishlim. 32. And Shimon and those with him, they were heavy with sleep and barely awake. And they saw shubkheh [his glory] and those two men who were standing with him. 33. And when they began to leave him, Shimon said to Yeshua, "Rabbi, it is good for us that we stay here and we make three shelters-- one for you and one for Moshe and one for Eliyah." And he did not know what he was saying. 34. And when he said these things, a cloud came and overshadowed them. And they were afraid when they saw Moshe and Eliyah enter into the cloud. 35. And a voice came from the cloud that said,
"This is my beloved Son.
36. And when the voice came, Yeshua was found alone. And they kept silent and they did not tell to anyone the thing that they saw in those days.
¶37. And it happened (that) on the next day when they descended from the tuora, large crowds met up with them. 38. And a certain man from the crowd cried out and he said, "Malpana, I beseech you, take notice of me! He is my only son to me, 39. and a Rukha seizes him and suddenly he cries out and gnashes his teeth and foams, and with difficulty it departs from him when it has tormented him. 40. And I beseeched from your talmida to cast it out, and they were not able." 41. And Yeshua answered and said,
"Oh generation that is not mahaymina [faithful] and is perverse!
How long must I be among you and endure you?
Bring your son here."
42. And while he was bringing him, that deewa cast him down and bruised him, and Yeshua rebuked that unclean Rukha and he healed the boy and gave him to his father.
¶43. And all of them were amazed by the greatness of Allaha. And while everyone was amazed at all that Yeshua had done, he said to his talmida,
44. "You place these words in your ears.
For the Son of Man will be delivered into the hands of men."
45. And they did not comprehend these words because it was hidden from them so that they would not know it. And they were afraid to ask him about this word.
¶46. And the thought entered into them as to who indeed is greater among them. 47. But Yeshua knew the thought of their heart and took a boy and set him by him, 48. and said to them.
"Whoever receives a child like this one in my name,
he receives me.
And whoever receives me,
receives Him who sent me.
For any(one) who is least among all of you,
this one will be great."
49. And Yukhanan answered and said, "Rabban, we saw a man who was casting out deewa in your name, and we forbade him because he did not follow us after you." 50. Yeshua said to them,
"Do not forbid (him),
for he that is not against you is for you."
¶51. And it happened that when the days of his journey were fulfilled, he hardened his face to go to Urishlim. 52. And he sent messengers before his face, and they came (and) entered a village of the Shamaritans in order to prepare for him. 53. And they did not receive him because his face was set to go to Urishlim. 54. And when his talmida Yaqub and Yukhanan saw (it), they said to him, "Maran, do you desire us to speak and have fire descend from heaven and consume them as Eliyah also did?" 55. And he turned around and rebuked them and said,
"You do not realize of which Rukha you are.
56. For the Son of Man did not come to destroy souls,
but to make (them) live."
And they went to another village.
¶57. And while they were going on the road, a man said to him, "I will come after you to the place that you go, Mari." 58. Yeshua said to him,
"Foxes have holes
and birds of heaven a home,
but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head."
59. And he said to another,
"Come after me."
And he said to him, "Mari, allow me first to go and bury abbi." 60. Yeshua said to him,
"Leave the dead to bury their dead,
and you go declare the Kingdom of Allaha."
61. Another said to him, "I will come after you Mari, but first allow me to go salute my household and I will come." 62. Yeshua said to him,
"No man places his hand upon the handle of a plough
and looks backwards
and is useful to the Kingdom of Allaha."
The Preaching of Luke
1. After these things, Yeshua appointed seventy from his other talmida and sent them two by two before his face to all regions and cities that he was about to go (to). 2. And he said to them,
"The harvest is great
and the workers are few.
Beseech therefore from the Mara [Lord] (of) the harvest
to send out workers into his harvest.
3. Go! Behold, I send you as sheep among wolves.
4. Do not take purses with you, nor wallets, nor shoes,
and do not ask a greeting of a man on the road.
5. And into whatever house that you enter, first say,
'Shlama (be) unto this house.'
6. And if there is there a man of shlama,
let shlamkoon [your peace] rest upon him.
But if not,
let shlamkoon return upon you.
7. And remain in that same house
while you are eating and drinking from their (provisions),
for the worker, he is worthy (of) his wages,
and (do) not move around from house to house.
8. And into whatever city that you enter,
and they receive you,
eat whatever that they set before you.
9. And heal those who are ill in it and say to them,
'The Kingdom of Allaha is (drawing) near to you.'
10. But into whatever city that you enter
and they do not receive you,
you go out into the streets and say,
11. 'Even the dust which cleaves to us on our feet from your city,
we shake off to you.
But realize this, that the Kingdom of Allaha, it is drawing near to you.'
12. I say to you that for Sadom it will be tranquil on that day compared to that city.
13. Woe to you Korazin!
Woe to you Beth-Saida!
For if the miracles that occurred in you had occurred in Tsur and in Tsidon,
perhaps they would have repented in sackcloth and in ashes.
14. Nevertheless, it will be tranquil for Tsur and for Tsidon at the judgment compared to you.
15. And you Capurnakhum who are exalted up to heaven,
you will be lowered (down) to Sheol.
16. Whoever listens to you
listens to me,
and whoever rejects you,
he rejects me.
And whoever rejects me,
rejects Him who sent me."
¶17. And those seventy whom he had sent returned with great joy and said to him, "Maran, even shada were subject to us by your name!" 18. And he said to them,
"I did see him, Satana, falling like lightning from heaven.
19. Behold I give authority to you
to be tread(ing) on snakes and scorpions and all the power of the enemy,
and nothing will harm you.
20. Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that shada are subject to you,
rather be glad that your names are written in heaven."
¶21. At that moment Yeshua rejoiced greatly in the Rukha d'Qudsha and said,
"I thank you Abbi, the Lord of heaven and of the earth,
that you have hidden these things from the wise and prudent,
and have revealed them to children.
Yes Abbi, because thus was the will in front of you."
22. And he turned to his talmida and said to them,
"Everything is delivered to me from Abbi,
and no man knows who the Son is except Abba,
and who Abba is except the Son,
and to him to whom the Son desires to reveal (Him)."
23. And he turned to his talmida and said privately,
"Blessed are the eyes that see the thing that you see.
24. For I say to you that
many prophets and malka desired
to see what you see,
and they did not see,
and to hear what you hear,
and they did not hear."
¶25. And behold, a certain Scribe arose to tempt him and said, "Malpana, what must I do to inherit life that is eternal?" 26. And Yeshua, he said to him,
"How is it written in the namusa?
How do you read (it)?"
27. He answered and said to him, "To 'love Mar-YHWH Allahak [your Allaha] meen [with] all your heart and meen all your soul and meen all your strength and meen all your mind,' and 'your neighbor as yourself.'" 28. Yeshua said to him,
"You have said it correctly.
Do this and you will live."
29. And he, wanting to justify himself, said to him, "And who is my neighbor?" 30. Yeshua said to him,
"A certain man had gone down from Urishlim to Yerikho
and robbers fell upon him and stripped him
and beat him and left him while life barely remained in him,
and they left.
31. And it so happened that a certain priest was going down on that road
and saw him and passed by.
32. And likewise also a Levite came (and) arrived at that place
and saw him and passed by.
33. But a Shamaritan man while he was journeying came where he was
and saw him and had compassion on him.
34. And he approached and bandaged his wounds and poured wine and oil upon them.
And he put him on his donkey and brought him to an inn and took care of him.
35. And on the dawn of the day, he departed.
He gave two denarii to the innkeeper and said to him,
'Take care of him, and if he requires anything more,
when I return I will give (it) to you.'
36. Who therefore from these three seems to you to be a neighbor to him who fell into the hands of the bandits?"
37. And he said, "He who had compassion on him." Yeshua said to him,
"Go (and) you also likewise be doing."
¶38. And it happened that while they were journeying on the road, he entered into a certain village, and a woman whose name (was) Martha received him into her house. 39. And she had a sister whose name (was) Maryam. And she came and seated herself at the feet of Maran and was listening to his words. 40. And Martha was occupied with many chores and came saying to him, "Mari, you do not seem to care that my sister has left me to chore by myself. Tell her to help me." 41. But Yeshhua answered and said to her,
You are anxious and troubled by many things,
42. but there is one (thing) that is important,
and Maryam has chosen the good part for herself.
That will not be taken from her."
The Preaching of Luke
1. And it happened that while he prayed in a certain place, when he finished, one of his talmida said to him, "Maran, teach us to pray as Yukhanan also taught his talmida." 2. Yeshua said to them,
"When you pray, be speaking as such:
Our Father in heaven
hallowed be your name.
Your Kingdom come,
Your will be done
as in heaven so on earth.
3. Give us the bread of our need everyday.
4. And forgive us our sins
for we also forgive all who have offended us.
And lead us not into trial
but save us from the evil one."
5. And he said to them,
"Who among you who has a friend and would go to him in the middle of the night and say to him,
'My friend, lend me three loaves
6. because a friend has come to me from a journey,
and I have nothing to set before him.'
7. And his friend from within would answer and say to him,
'Do not bother me,
for behold the door is closed
and my children are with me in bed.
I'm not able to get up and give (it) to you.'
8. I say to you that if he will not give to him because of friendship,
he will arise because of his urgency
and give to him as much as is required by him.
9. I also say to you,
and it will be given to you,
and you will find,
and it will be opened to you.
10. For everyone who asks
and who seeks
and who knocks
(it) will be opened to him.
11. For which one among you (who is) an abba
if his son asks (for) bread from him
why, would (he) hand him a stone?
And if he asks a fish from him,
why, would (he) hand him a snake instead of a fish?
12. And if he asks an egg of him,
why, would he hand a scorpion to him?
13. And if you who are evil, you know to
give good gifts to your children,
how much more your Father from heaven will
give the Rukha d'Qudsha to those who ask him."
¶14. And as he was casting out a shada that was dumb, it happened that when that shada went out, that dumb man spoke and the crowds were amazed. 15. And some of them said, "This (man) casts out deewa by Baal-Zebub, the head of deewa." 16. But others while tempting him were asking (for) a sign from Heaven (from) him. 17. But Yeshua who was aware (of) their thoughts said to them,
"Every kingdom that is divided against itself
will become desolate,
and a house that is divided against its own nature
18. And if Satana is divided against himself,
how will his kingdom stand?
Because you say that I cast out deewa by Baal-Zebub,
19. and if I cast out deewa by Baal-Zebub,
by whom do your sons cast (them) out?
Because of this they will be judges to you.
20. But if I cast out deewa by the finger of Allaha,
the Kingdom of Allaha, it is drawing near to you.
21. When a strong man while armed keeps watch over his courtyard,
his property is in shayna [tranquility].
22. But if one should come who is stronger than him (and) overcome him,
he will take all his armor, that which he had trusted upon,
and he will divide his spoil.
23. He who is not with me
is against me,
and he who gathers not with me,
¶24. An unclean Rukha, when it departs from a man,
it goes (and) wanders around in places where water is absent
in which to seek rest for itself,
and when it does not find (it), it says,
'I will return to my house from where I went out.'
25. And if it comes and should find that it was swept and adorned,
26. then it goes (and) takes seven other ruokhiyn [spirits] that are worse than itself,
and they enter and dwell there,
and the end of that man becomes worse than the beginning."
¶27. And after he had spoken these things, a certain woman from the crowd raised up her voice and said to him,
"Blessed is the womb that bore you
and the breasts that nursed you!"
28. He said to her,
"Blessed are they who hear the Word of Allaha and keep it."
¶29. And when the crowds were gathered, he began to say,
"This evil generation seeks a sign,
and a sign will not be given to it except the sign of the prophet Yonan.
30. For as Yonan was a sign to the Ninevites,
thus will the Son of Man also be (a sign) to this generation.
31. The malkta [queen] of the south will rise up with the men of this generation in the judgment and condemn them,
because she came from the far ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Shleemon,
and behold, (one) who is greater than Shleemon (is) here.
32. The Ninevite men will rise up in the judgment
with this generation and will condemn it
because they repented at
the preaching of Yohan,
and behold, (one) who is greater than Yonan (is) here.
¶33. No man lights a lamp and sets it in a hidden place, or under a basket,
rather upon a lampstand so (that) those who enter may see its light.
34. Your eye is the lamp of your body.
Therefore, when your eye is true,
all your body will also be bright.
But if it should be evil,
your body will also be dark.
35. Therefore take heed lest the light that is in you is darkness.
36. And if all your body is light and any portion in it does not have dark,
it will be enlightened, all of it,
as a lamp by its flame enlightens you."
¶37. And while he spoke, a certain Pharisee requested from him to dine with him, and he entered and reclined. 38. And that Pharisee was amazed when he saw him that he had not first washed before his meal. 39. But Yeshua said to him,
"Now you Pharisees,
you cleanse the outside of the cup and of the plate,
but the inside of yourselves is full of extortion and iniquity.
Is it not (true that) he who made the outside,
he also made the inside?
41. Nevertheless, anything that you have, give it in zedqata [alms],
and behold, everything will be clean to you.
42. But woe to you Pharisees,
because you tithe mint and dill and every herb,
and you pass over justice and over the love of Allaha.
Now these things were necessary for you to have done,
and these things you should not forsake.
43. Woe to you Pharisees!
For you love the chief seats in the assembly
and a greeting in the streets.
44. Woe to you Sapra and Pharisees, hypocrites!
For you are like graves that are not known,
and men walk over them and do not realize (it)."
45. And one of the Sapra answered and said to him, "Malpana, when you say these things, you despise even us." 46. And he said,
"Woe also to you Sapra,
because you make men carry heavy loads
and you, with one of your fingers,
you do not touch them-- the loads.
47. Woe to you,
for you build the graves of the prophets,
those whom your fathers killed.
48. You bear witness therefore and you approve
the works of your fathers because they killed them,
and you, you build their graves!
49. Because of this also the wisdom of Allaha said that,
'Behold, I will send prophets and Shelikha to them,
some of whom they will persecute and kill.'
50. The blood of all the prophets that was shed from when the world was created,
that will be required from this generation.
51. From the blood of Haweel, up to the blood of Zacharyah, he who was killed between the temple and the altar,
yes, I say to you that it will be required from this generation.
52. Woe to you Sapra,
because you have taken away the keys of knowledge.
You have not entered, and you have hindered those who were entering."
53. And while he was speaking these things to them, the Sapra and the Pharisees began to be displeased and they were enraged and criticized his words. 54. And they plotted against him in many ways while seeking to seize something from his mouth in order to be able to accuse him.
The Preaching of Luke
1. And when a multitude of many crowds gathered so that they trampled one another, Yeshua began to say to his talmida,
"First of all, be wary inside yourselves of
the leaven of the Pharisees which is hypocrisy.
2. And there is not anything
that is covered
that will not be revealed,
or that is hidden
that will not be known.
3. For everything that you say in darkness
will be heard in light.
And the thing that you whisper into ears in closets
will be proclaimed upon the roof.
4. But I say to you my friends,
do not have fear of those who kill the body
and after that they have nothing more to do.
5. But I will show you of whom you should be afraid of:
He whom, after He has killed,
has authority to throw (you) into Gehenna.
Yes, I say to you, of Him-- this one-- have fear.
6. (Are) not five sparrows sold for two coins,
and (yet) not one of them is lost before Allaha.
7. But even the individual hairs of your head-- all of them-- are numbered.
Therefore, do not have fear,
because you are more valuable than a multitude of sparrows.
8. And I say to you that
whoever confesses me before men,
the Son of Man (will) also confess him before the malakas of Allaha.
9. But whoever denies me before men,
will himself be denied before the malakas of Allaha.
10. And anyone who says a word against the Son of man,
it will be forgiven him.
But he who blasphemes against the Rukha d'Qudsha,
it will not be forgiven him.
11. And when they bring you into the assemblies before chiefs and authorities,
do not be anxious about
how (your) breath should depart,
or what you should say.
12. For the Rukha d'Qudsha will teach you at that moment what is worthy that you should say."
¶13. And a man from that crowd said to him, "Malpana, tell my brother (to) divide the inheritance with me." 14. But Yeshua said to him,
"Man, who has appointed me (as) a judge and divider over (the two of) you?"
15. And he said to his talmida,
"Beware of all greediness,
because life is not in the abundance of wealth."
16. And he spoke a parable to them:
"(About) a certain rich man, his land brought many crops to him.
17. And he was reasoning in himself and saying,
'What shall I do,
because I have no (place) where I can gather in my crops?'
18. And he said,
'I will do this:
I will tear down my barns
and rebuild and enlarge them
and gather in there all my wheat and goods.
19. And I will say to myself,
'My soul, you have many goods
that are laid up for many years.
Relax, eat drink (and) be merry.''
20. But Allaha said to him,
'Fool! Your soul, it will be required from you in this night,
and these things that you have prepared,
who will they be for?'
21. Such (is) he who lays up treasures for himself,
and does not abound in Allaha."
22. And he said to his talmida,
"Because of this I say to you,
do not be anxious about yourselves,
what you will eat
nor about your bodies,
what you will wear.
23. For the soul is greater than food,
and the body than clothing.
24. Consider the ravens that they do not sow nor do they reap
and they have no storerooms or barns,
and (yet) Allaha provides for them.
Therefore, how much more (important) are you than the birds?
25. And which of you while you are worrying is able to add one cubit to his stature?
26. And if you are not even able (to do) the smaller thing,
why concerning the rest are you worrying?
27. Consider the lilies how they grow.
For they do not labor nor do they spin.
But I say to you that not even Shleemon in all shubkheh [his glory] was covered like one of these.
28. And if the grass that is in the field today and tomorrow falls into the furnace, Allaha thus clothes,
how much more you of little faith?
29. And you, do not seek what you will eat and what you will drink,
nor let your mind be disturbed by these things.
30. For all these things they-- the nations of the world-- seek,
and for you also, your Father knows that these things are necessary for you.
31. Nevertheless, seek the Kingdom of Allaha
and all these things will be added to you.
32. Little flock, do not fear
because your Father desires to give the Kingdom to you.
33. Sell your possessions and give zedqata [alms].
Make for yourselves purses that do not wear out,
and a treasure in heaven that does not fail,
where the thief does not approach and the moth does not corrupt.
34. For where that your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.
¶35. (Allow) your loins to be girded up and your lamps lit.
36. And be likened to men who expect their Lord at the time he returns from the wedding-feast,
so that when he comes and knocks they may immediately open (the door) to him.
37. Blessed are those servants, they who their Lord comes and finds them while they are awake.
Amain I say to you that,
he will gird up his loins and cause them to recline,
and will go around serving them.
38. And if in the second or third watch he comes and finds (them) thus, blessed are those servants.
39. But realize this, that if the lord of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched and would not allow his house to be broken into.
40. Therefore you also be ready because at that moment that you do not expect, the Son of Man will come."
¶41. Shimon Keepa said to him, "Maran, do you speak this parable to us, or also to everyone?" 42. Yeshua said to him,
"Who indeed is the mahaymina [faithful] and wise steward
whom his Lord will appoint over his service,
that he should give a portion in due time?
43. Blessed is that servant who when his Lord comes
will find him that he does thus.
44. Certainly I say to you that,
he will appoint him over all his wealth.
45. But if that servant should say in his heart that
'Mari delays to come'
and begins to beat the servants and maidservants of his Lord
and begins to eat and to drink and to be intoxicated,
46. the Lord of that servant will come
in a day that he does not expect
and in an hour that he does not know.
And he will divide him and place his portion with those who are not faithful.
47. And that servant who knows the will of his Lord
and does not prepare for him according to his will,
will be beaten with many (stripes).
48. But he who does not know
and does the thing that is worthy of stripes
will be beaten (with) fewer stripes.
For anyone who is given much to him,
much is required from him.
And he to whom they have committed much to him,
more will they require by his hand.
¶49. I have come to cast fire on earth,
and I desire it had been kindled, if not already.
50. And I have a baptism to be baptized (with),
and I'm greatly afflicted until it is fulfilled.
51. Do you think that I have come to place shayna [tranquility] on earth?
I say to you, no,
For from now (on),
52. there will be five in a certain house(hold) that will be divided,
three against two,
and two against three.
53. For an abba will be divided against his son,
and a son against his father,
a mother against her daughter,
and a daughter against her mother,
a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law,
and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law."
¶54. And he said to the crowds,
"When you see a cloud that rises from the west, immediately you say,
'Rain is coming,'
and it happens thus.
55. And when the south (wind) blows you say,
'There will be heat,'
and it happens.
You know to distinguish the appearance of the earth and of the heavens,
but you do not (know) how to distinguish this time.
57. And why do you not judge of yourselves right?
¶58. For when you go with your accuser to the ruler while on the way,
you barter (with him) and settle with him lest he take you to the judge
and the judge will deliver you to the warden
and the warden cast you (into) prison.
59. And I say to you that you will not depart from there until you pay the last coin.
The Preaching of Luke
1. Now at that time men came (and) told him about those Galileans whom Peelatos had mingled their blood with their sacrifices. 2. And Yeshua answered and said to them,
"Do you think that those Galileans were greater sinners
than all (other) Galileans because they were (killed) thus?
3. No, but I say to you that
also all of you, if you do not repent,
likewise you will be destroyed.
4. Or those eighteen whom had the tower fallen upon them and killed them in Shilokha,
do you think that they were greater sinners than all of the people who live in Urishlim?
5. No, but I say to you that
unless you repent,
all of you-- like them-- you will be destroyed."
¶6. And he spoke this parable:
"A man had a fig tree that was planted in his vineyard,
and he came seeking fruit on it,
and he did not find (any).
7. And he said to the workers,
'Behold, three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree
and I have not found (any).
Cut it down!
Why should the ground be wasted?'
8. A worker said to him,
'Mari, allow it even this year
until I work (with it) and fertilize it.
9. Maybe it will produce fruit,
and if not, next year you may cut it down.'"
¶10. Now while Yeshua taught on the Shabbata in one of the assemblies, 11. there was there a woman who had a Rukha of infirmity eighteen years. And she was bent down and she was not able to straighten herself at all. 12. And Yeshua saw her and called her and said to her,
"Woman, you are freed from your infirmity."
13. And he placed his hand on her, and she straightened herself immediately and glorified Allaha. 14. But the leader of the assembly answered while he was angered because Yeshua had healed on the Shabbata, and said to the assembly, "Six are the days in which it is right to labor in them. You should come (and) be healed, but not on the day of the Shabbata." 15. But Yeshua answered and said to him,
Does not each one of you on the Shabbata
loose his ox or his donkey from the stable
and goes (and) waters it?
16. And this (woman) because she is a daughter of Awraham,
and Akelqartza has bound her behold eighteen years,
was it not right to free her from this bondage
on the day of the Shabbata?"
17. And while he was saying these things, all of those who opposed him were ashamed, and all the people were rejoicing at all the wonders that were occurring by his hand.
¶18. And Yeshua would say,
"To what is the Kingdom of Allaha likened?
And what can I compare it to?
19. It is like a grain of mustard seed,
that which a man took and cast it into his garden
and it grew and became a large tree,
and a bird of heaven nested in its branches."
¶20. Yeshua said again,
"To what can I compare the Kingdom of Allaha?
21. It is like leaven that a woman took
and buried it in three measures of flour
until all of it was leavened."
¶22. And he would travel in the villages and cities while teaching, and he went to Urishlim. 23. And a man asked him whether they are few that will live, and Yeshua said to them,
24. "Strive to enter through the narrow door.
For I say to you that,
many will seek to enter and will not be able (to).
25. From the hour that the lord of the house rises and secures the door,
then they will stand outside and knock on the door and begin to say,
'Maran, maran! Open to us!'
And he will answer and will say,
'I say to you that I do not know you. From where (are) you?'
26. And they will begin to say,
'We ate and we drank before you, and you had taught in our streets.'
27. And he will say to you that,
'I do not know you. From where (are) you?
Depart from me, workers of falsehood!'
28. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth there
when you see Awraham and Iskhaq and Yaqub and all the prophets in the Kingdom of Allaha,
but you will be cast outside!
29. And they will come from the east and from the west
and from the south and from the north
and they will recline in the Kingdom of Allaha.
30. And behold, there are (some who are) last who will be first,
and there are (some who are) first who will be last."
¶31. In that same day men of the Pharisees drew near and said to him, "Depart! Leave from here because Herodus desires to have you killed." 32. Yeshua said to them,
"Go tell that fox that behold,
I will cast out shada,
and I perform cures today and tomorrow,
and on the third day I will be finished.
33. Nevertheless, it is necessary for me that
today and tomorrow I work,
and on another day I will go,
because it is not possible that a prophet perish outside of Urishlim.
34. Urishlim! Urishlim!
You have killed prophets
and you have stoned those who were sent to you.
How many times I have desired to gather your children,
as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings,
and you did not want (it)!
35. Behold your house is left desolate to you.
For I say to you that you will not see me (again) until you say,
'Blessed is he who comes in the name of Mar-YHWH.'"
The Preaching of Luke
1. And it happened that when he entered into the house of one of the rulers of the Pharisees to eat bread on the day of the Shabbata, and they were watching him, 2. and behold, a certain man who had dropsy was there before him. 3. And Yeshua answered and said to the Sapra and to the Pharisees that,
"Is it lawful to heal on the Shabbata?"
4. And they kept silent. And he took him and healed him and let him go. 5. And he said to them,
"Who among you if his son or his ox falls into a well
on the day of the Shabbata and does not immediately pull (and) bring him up?"
6. And they were not able to give him an answer concerning this.
¶7. And he was speaking a parable to them who were invited there, because he was seeing those who were choosing places among the front seats.
8. "When you are invited by a man to a banquet-house,
do not go (and) seat yourself in the front seat,
lest a man more honorable than you should be invited there.
9. And he who called both of you will come, and will say to you,
'Give place to this (man).'
And you will be ashamed as you get up and you take a lesser place.
10. Rather, when you are invited
go seat yourself in the back,
that when he that called you comes, he will say to you,
'My friend, move yourself up and seat yourself higher,'
and you will have tishbokhtha [glory/ praise] in front of all who sit with you.
11. For anyone who exalts himself will be humbled,
and anyone who humbles himself will be exalted."
12. And he also said to him who called for him,
"When you make a banquet or a dinner,
do not call your friends nor even your brothers
or your kinsmen nor your rich neighbors,
lest even they call for you and you have this recompense.
13. Rather, when you make a reception,
call on the poor, the maimed,
the lame, (and) the blind.
14. And you will be blessed because they have nothing to repay you.
For your repayment will be in the resurrection of the zadiqa."
15. And when one of them who were seated heard these things, he said to him, "Blessed is he who will eat bread in the Kingdom of Allaha!"
16. Yeshua said to him,
"A certain man made a great supper, and he called on many.
17. And he sent his servant at the time of the supper to tell those who were called,
'Behold, everything is prepared for you. Come.'
18. And from the first, all began to excuse themselves.
The first said to him,
'I have bought a field and I need to go out (and) see it.
I beseech you, allow me to be excused.'
19. Another said,
'I have bought five yoke (of) oxen,
and I'm going to examine them.
I beseech you, allow me to be excused.'
20. And another said,
'I have taken a wife and because of this,
I'm not able to come.'
21. And that servant came and told his lord these things.
Then the lord of the house was angry and said to his servant,
'Go out quickly into the marketplaces and streets of the city
and bring here the poor and the afflicted and the maimed and the blind.'
22. And the servant said,
'Mari, it is as you have commanded, and yet there is room.'
23. And the lord said to his servant,
'Go out into the streets and among the hedges
and urge (them) that they enter,
so that my house may be full.
24. For I say to you that
not one of those men who were called will taste of my supper.'"
¶25. And while large crowds were going with him, he turned and said to them,
26. "He who comes to me
and does not hate his father and his mother
and his brothers and his sisters
and his wife and his children and even himself,
is not able to be a talmida to me.
27. And he who does not take up his execution-stake and comes after me,
is not able to be a talmida to me.
28. For who among you who desires to build a tower
and not sits down first (and) thinks about its cost,
if he has (enough) to complete it,
29. lest when he lay the foundation and is not able to finish it,
all who see will be mocking at him.
30. And they say that
'this man began to build
and is not able to finish it.'
31. Or which malka who goes to war to fight with a neighboring malka
does not first think whether he is able with ten thousand
to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand,
32. and if not, while he is far away from him,
he sends envoys and beseech(es) for shlama?
33. Thus, every one of you who does not leave all his possessions
is not able to be a talmida to me.
34. Salt is good, but if even the salt becomes bland,
with what will it be seasoned?
35. It is fit for neither the ground nor for the dunghill-- they throw it outside.
He who has ears to hear, let him hear!"
The Preaching of Luke
1. And tax-collectors and sinners were drawing near to him in order to hear him. 2. And the Sapra and Pharisees were murmuring and saying,
"This (man) receives sinners and he eats with them!"
¶3. And Yeshua told them this parable:
"Who among you men who has one hundred sheep,
and if one of them should be lost,
does not leave the ninety and nine in the open
and goes (and) seeks that one which was lost until he should find it?
5. And when he has found it,
he will rejoice and take it upon his shoulders
6. and comes to his house and calls upon his friends and upon his neighbors and says to them,
'Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!'
7. I say to you that thus will be the joy in heaven [or is it Heaven, as in 'Allaha'?] over one sinner who repents
than over ninety and nine zadiqin [righteous ones] who do not need repentance.
¶8. Or what woman who has ten coins and loses one of them
and she does not light a lamp and sweep the house and searches for it carefully until she finds it.
9. And when she has found it she calls to her friends and to her neighbors and says to them,
'Rejoice with me, for I have found my coin which was lost!'
10. I say to you that
likewise there will be joy before the malakas of Allaha
over one sinner who repents."
¶11. And Yeshua would say to them again,
"A certain man had two sons.
12. And his younger son said to him,
'Abbi, give to me the portion that is coming to me from your estate.'
And he divided to them his possessions.
13. And after a few days, his younger son gathered everything that was his share
and he went to a far country.
And there he wasted his wealth while living lavishly.
14. And when he had used up everything that he had,
there was a great famine in that country,
and he began to be in need.
15. And he went and became acquainted (with)
one of the sons of the city of that country,
and he sent him into the fields to tend swine.
16. And he was craving to fill his stomach from those husks that the swine were eating,
and no man would give to him.
17. And when he came to himself, he said,
'Now how many servants are there (at) Abbi's house who have plenty of bread?--
and here I (am) with my hunger (and) I'm perishing.
18. I will arise, go to abbi, and say to him,
'Abbi, I have sinned against Heaven and before you,
19. and therefore I'm not worthy that I be called your son.
Make me like one of your servants.'
20. And he arose (and) came to his father,
and while he was far away,
his father saw him and had compassion on him
and he ran, fell upon his neck, and kissed him.
21. And his son said to him,
'Abbi, I have sinned against Heaven and before you,
and I'm not worthy that I be called your son.'
22. But his father said to his servants,
'Bring out the best robe (and) clothe him
and place a ring on his hand and put shoes on him,
23. and bring out (and) kill the ox that is fattened,
and let us eat and be merry!
24. For this my son was dead,
yet he lives,
and was lost
yet is found.'
And they began to be merry.
25. But his elder son, he was in the field,
and when he came and drew near to the house,
he heard the sound (of) the singing of many.
26. And he called to one of the boys and asked him, 'What is this?'
27. He said to him,
'Your brother has come and your father has killed the ox that was fattened,
because he has received him (back) whole.'
28. And he was angry and did not desire to enter.
And his father came out (and) beseeched from him.
29. But he said to his father,
'Behold how many years I have worked for you in service,
and I have not ever transgressed your commandments.
And during all this time,
you did not give me a goat to make merry with my friends!
30. And for this your son, while he has wasted your wealth among prostitutes and has come (home),
you have slain for him the ox that was fattened!'
31. His father said to him,
'My son, you are with me at all times, and everything that is mine is yours.
32. But it was right for us to make merry and to rejoice,
because this your brother
yet he lives,
and was lost
yet he is found.'"
The Preaching of Luke
1. And he spoke a parable to his talmida:
"There was a certain rich man,
and he had a steward,
and they had accused him of squandering his wealth.
2. And his lord called him and said to him,
'What is this that I hear concerning you?
Give to me a reckoning of your stewardship,
for you are not able any longer to be a steward for me.'
3. That steward said in himself,
'What should I do, for Mari has taken the stewardship from me?
I'm not able to dig,
and I'm ashamed to beg.
4. I know what I will do,
that when I'm dismissed from the stewardship,
they will receive me in their homes.'
5. And he called the debtors to his lord one by one
and said to the first one,
'How much do you owe to Mari?'
6. He said to him,
'One hundred measures (of) oil.'
He said to him,
'Take your book, sit down quickly, and write down fifty measures.'
7. And he said to another,
'And you, what do you owe to Mari?'
He said to him,
'One hundred korin (of) wheat.'
He said to him,
'Take your book, sit down, and write eighty korin.'
8. And maran praised the unjust steward because he had done wisely,
for the sons of this world are wiser than the sons of light in this their generation.
9. And I also say to you,
make for yourself friends from this mammona [wealth/ money] of iniquity,
that when it is consumed,
they may receive you into their everlasting shelters.
10. He who is faithful in little
is also faithful in much,
and he who is unjust in little
is also unjust in much.
11. Therefore, if you remain not mahaymina [faithful] in the mammona of iniquity,
truly who will believe you?
12. And if you have not been found mahaymina [faithful] in that which is not yours,
who will give to you your own?
13. There is no servant who is able to serve two lords.
For either one he will hate
and the other he will love,
or one he will honor
and the other he will despise.
You are not able to serve Allaha and mammona."
¶14. But when the Pharisees heard all these things, because that they had loved money, they were mocking at him. 15. And Yeshua said to them,
"You are those who justify themselves before the sons of men,
but Allaha knows your hearts,
because the thing that is esteemed among men
is abominable before Allaha.
16. The namusa and the prophets (were) until Yukhanan.
Since then, the Kingdom of Allaha is preached, and all press into it to enter.
17. And it (is) easier for heaven and earth to pass away than (for) one letter of the namusa to pass away.
18. Everyone who divorces his wife, and takes another, commits adultery.
And everyone who takes a divorced (woman) commits adultery.
¶19. Now there was a certain rich man, and he would wear purple and linen. And everyday he would luxuriously make merry.
20. And there was a certain poor man whose name (was) Lazar.
And he would lay at the gate of that rich man, while being afflicted with sores.
21. And he was longing to fill his stomach
from the crumbs that fell from the table of that rich man.
But even the dogs would come lick his sores.
22. And now this happened:
that poor man died and the malakas carried him to the bosom of Awraham,
and also that rich man died and was buried.
23. And while he was tormented in Sheol,
he lifted up his eyes and gazed from afar upon Awraham and upon Lazar at his bosom.
24. And he cried out in a loud voice and said,
'Abbi Awraham, have compassion on me
and send to Lazar that he may dip the tip (of) his finger in water
and to moisten my tongue for me,
for behold, I'm tormented in this flame!'
25. Awraham said to him,
'My son, remember that you received your good things during your life,
and Lazar his bad things.
And now behold, he is comfortable here
and you are tormented.
26. Besides all these things, a great chasm is placed between you and us
so that those who desire to pass over from here to you are not able,
and neither (are) those from there (able) to pass over to us.'
27. He said to him,
'If so, I beseech you Abbi
that you send him to Abbi's house,
28. for I have five brothers.
Let him go witness (to) them
that they not also come to this place of torment.'
29. Awraham said to him,
'They have Moshe and the prophets--
let them hear them.'
30. But he said to him,
'No Abbi Awraham,
but if a man from the dead should go to them,
they will repent.'
31. Awraham said to him,
'If they do not listen to Moshe and to the prophets,
if a man should rise from the dead,
they would also not believe him.'"
The Preaching of Luke
1. And Yeshua would say to his talmida,
"It is not possible that offenses will not come,
but woe to him by whose hands they come.
2. It would be better for him if
a millstone of a donkey were hung on his neck
and he were thrown into the sea,
than he cause one of these little ones to stumble.
¶3. Beware in yourselves.
If your brother sins.
and if he repents,
4. And if seven times in a day
he offends you,
and seven times in a day
he turns to you and says that, 'I repent,'
¶5. And the Shelikha said to Maran, "Increase to us faith." 6. He said to them,
"If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed,
you could say to this tree,
'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,'
and it would obey you.
¶7. Now who among you who has a servant who ploughs or who tends a flock,
and if he should come from the field, says to him,
'Immediately pass through (and) recline'?
8. Rather he says to him,
'Prepare for me something to consume.
Gird up your loins and serve me
until I have eaten and drank.
And afterwards you may eat and drink also.'
9. What, does that servant receive his thanks because he did the thing that was commanded him?
I do not think (so).
10. Likewise even you,
when you have done all the things that are commanded you, say that
'We are idle servants because we have done what we ought to do.'"
¶11. And it happened that while Yeshua went to Urishlim, he crossed over among the Shamaritans of Galeela. 12. And when he was near to entering into a certain village, ten men (who were) lepers met him and they stood from a distance. 13. And they raised their voices and said, "Rabban Yeshua, have mercy on us!" 14. And when he saw them he said to them,
"Go show yourselves to the kahna,"
and they were cleansed while they were going. 15. But one of them, when he saw that he was cleansed, returned and with a loud voice was giving praise to Allaha. 16. And he fell upon his face before the feet of Yeshua while thanking him. And this (man), he was a Shamaritan. 17. And Yeshua answered and said,
"Were there not ten, those who were cleansed-- where are the nine?
18. For what (reason) did they separate that they should (not) come give tishbokhtha
[glory/ praise] to Allaha?
Only this (man did) who is from a foreign people."
19. And he said to him,
Your faith has given you life."
¶20. And when (one) from the Pharisees asked Yeshua when the Kingdom of Allaha would come, he answered and said to them,
"The Kingdom of Allaha does not come by observation.
21. Neither will they say,
'Behold, here it is' and
'Behold, there it is,'
for behold, the Kingdom of Allaha is within you."
22. And he said to his talmida,
"The days will come when
you will covet to see one of the days of the Son of Man,
and you will not see (it).
23. And if they say to you,
'Behold here it is' and 'Behold there it is,'
do not go.
24. For as lightning flashes from heaven,
and all (that is) under heaven is lit,
such will be the Son of Man in his day.
25. But first it is necessary that he suffer many things
and be rejected by this generation.
26. And as it was in the days of Nukh,
likewise it will be in the days of the Son of Man.
27. For they were eating and drinking
and taking wives and giving (them) to husbands
until the day that Nukh entered into the Ark,
and the flood came and destroyed everyone.
28. And again, as it was in the days of Lot,
that they were eating and drinking
and were buying and selling
and planting and building,
29. but on the day that Lot went out from Sadom,
Mar-YHWH rained down fire and brimstone from heaven
and destroyed all of them,
30. thus it will be in the day that the Son of Man is revealed.
31. In that day, he who is on the roof and his possessions are in the house,
let him not come down to take them.,
and he who is in the field,
let him not turn back--
32. remember the wife of Lot.
33. He who desires to save his soul will destroy it,
and he who destroys his soul will make it live.
34. I say to you that in that night,
two will be in one bed;
one will be taken and the other will be left.
35. Two (women) will be grinding (grain) together;
one will be taken and the other will be left."
36. Two will be in the field;
one will be taken and the other will be left.
37. They answered and said to him, "To where, Maran?" He said to them,
"Where the carcass (is),
there the eagles will be gathered."
The Preaching of Luke
1. And he also spoke a parable to them, that they should pray at all times and not become weary:
2. "There was a certain judge in a certain city
whom from Allaha he did not fear,
and from the sons of men he did not regard.
3. And there was a certain widow in that city,
and she did come to him and say,
'Avenge me of baal-d'iyni [my lord of judgment, i.e. my accuser].'
4. And he did not desire (for) much time,
but afterwards he said inside himself,
'If I do not fear from Allaha,
and I do not regard from the sons of men,
5. yet, because that this widow troubles me,
I will avenge her,
that it should not occur
(that) she comes at all times (and) annoys me.'"
6. And Maran said,
"Hear what the judge that is unjust said.
7. And will not Allaha all the more do vengeance for His elect who call on Him by day and by night
and be long-suffering with them?
8. I say to you that He will do their vengeance quickly.
Nevertheless, the Son of Man will indeed come,
and will he find faith on earth?"
¶9. And he did speak this parable against those men who relied upon themselves, that they are zadiqa and they despise against everyone:
10. "Two men went up to the temple to pray,
one a Pharisee and the other a publican.
11. And that Pharisee was standing by himself,
and he would pray this (way):
'Allaha, I thank you that I'm not like the rest of the people:
extortioners and covetous and adulterers,
nor like this publican.
12. Rather, I fast two (days) in a week,
and I tithe everything that I earn.'
13. But that publican was standing from afar
and did not even desire to raise his eyes to heaven [or is it 'Heaven' as in 'Allaha'?],
rather, he was beating upon his breast and said,
'Allaha, have compassion on me, a sinner!'
14. I say to you that
this (man) went down to his house righteous
more so than that Pharisee.
For every man who exalts himself will be humbled,
and everyone who humbles himself will be exalted."
¶15. And they were even bringing infants to him that he might touch them, and his talmida saw them and rebuked them. 16. But Yeshua called them and he said to them,
"Allow the children to come to me
and do not hinder them,
for because that those that are as these--
theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
17. Amain I say to you that
he who does not receive the Kingdom of Allaha as a child will not enter it."
18. And one of the leaders asked him and said to him, "Good Malpana, what must I do to inherit life that is eternal?"
19. Yeshua said to him,
"Why do you call me good?
There is no (one) good except one-- Allaha.
20. You know the commandments:
'do not kill' and 'do not commit adultery'
and 'do not steal'
and 'do not bear witness that is false ' (and) 'honor your father and your mother.'"
21. He said to him, "All these things, I have kept them from my youth."
22. But when Yeshua heard these things, he said to him,
"One (thing) is lacking in you.
Go sell everything that you have
and give to the poor,
and you will have treasure in heaven.
And come after me."
23. But he, when he heard these things he was sad, for he was very wealthy. 24. And when Yeshua saw that he felt sad, he said,
"How difficult (it is) for those who have wealth to enter into the Kingdom of Allaha,
25. because it is easier for a rope that it enter through the eye of a needle
than a rich man (enter) into the Kingdom of Allaha."
26. Those who heard said to him, "And who is able to live?!" 27. And Yeshua said,
"Those things with which the sons of men are not able (to be),
are able to be with Allaha."
28. Shimon Keepa said to him, "Behold we have left everything and have come after you." 29. Yeshua said to him,
"Amain I say to you that
there is no man who has left houses or parents or brothers
or wife or children because of the Kingdom of Allaha,
30. and will not receive many times more in this time,
and in the world to come, life that is eternal."
¶31. And Yeshua took his twelve and said to them,
"Behold, we are going up to Urishlim
and all things will be fulfilled that are written
by the prophets concerning the Son of Man.
32. For he will be delivered to the Gentiles
and they will mock at him and they will spit in his face
33. and they will scourge him and curse him
and they will kill him.
And on the third day he will rise."
34. But they did not comprehend one of these things, rather this saying was hidden from them, and they did not understand these things that were spoken to them.
¶35. And when he approached to Yerikho, a certain blind man was sitting on the side of the road and begging. 36. And he heard the sound of the crowds who were passing by, and he was enquiring that, "Who is this?" 37. They said to him, "Yeshua the Nasraya, passing by." 38. And he cried out and said, "Yeshua, the Son of Dawid, have mercy on me!" 39. And those who were going before Yeshua were rebuking him that he should be silent. But he all the more did cry out, "The Son of Dawid, have mercy on me!" 40. And Yeshua stood still and commanded that they bring him to him. And when he was near to him, he asked him 41. and said to him,
"What do you desire
me to do for you?"
And he said, "Mari, that I may see!" 42. And Yeshua said to him,
Your faith has given you life."
43. And he saw at once and he followed him and gave praise to Allaha, and all the people who saw (it) were giving shubkha [glory] to Allaha.

And when Yeshua entered into and passed through Yerikho 2. a certain man whose name (was) Zakkai was a wealthy man and a head of the tax-collectors, 3. and he was desiring to see who Yeshua was, and he was not able (to) on account of the crowds, because Zakkai was small in his stature. 4. And he ran in front of Yeshua and he climbed up a barren tree that he might see him, because he was about to pass that way. 5. And when Yeshua came to that spot, he saw him and said to him,
Come down Zakkai,
for it is right that I stay in your house today."
6. And hurriedly he descended and received him while rejoicing. 7. But when all of them saw, they were murmuring and saying that, 'he has entered (and) lodged with a sinful man.' 8. But Zakkai arose and said to Yeshua, "Behold Mari, half of my wealth I give to the poor, and to anyone that I have defrauded (of) anything, I will repay fourfold." 9. Yeshua said to him,
"Life has come to this house today,
because that this (man) is also a son of Awraham.
10. For the Son of Man came to seek and to make alive
that thing which was lost."
¶11. And when they were hearing these things, he continued to speak a parable because he was near to Urishlim, and they were desiring that it was necessary that the Kingdom of Allaha would be revealed immediately. 12. And he said,
"A certain man, a son of great nobility,
went to a far country to receive a kingdom for himself and to return.
13. And he called ten (of) his servants
and he gave ten coins to them and said to them,
'Make trade until I return.'
14. But the sons of his city hated him
and sent ambassadors after him and were saying,
'We do not want this (man) to rule over us.'
15. And when he received the kingdom and was returning,
he said that neqruon [they should call] to him those his servants to whom he had given money,
that he might know what every last one of them had gained.
16. And the first came and said,
'Mari, your coin has gained ten coins.'
17. He said to him,
'Well done good servant.
Because with little you have been found faithful,
you will be an authority over ten talents.'
18. And the second came and said,
'Mari, your coin has made five coins.'
19. He also said to that (servant),
'You will also be an authority over five talents.'
And another came and said,
'Mari, behold your coin,
that which was with me since it was placed in a purse,
21. for I feared you, that you (are) a harsh man,
and you take up the thing that you have not laid down,
and you reap the thing that you have not sown.'
22. He said to him,
'From your (own) mouth I will judge you, wicked servant.
You knew me, that I (am) a harsh man,
and I take up the thing that I have not laid down,
and I reap the thing that I have not sown.
23. Why did you not give my money to the exchange
and I could come demand it with its interest?'
24. And to those who were standing before him he said,
'Take the coin from him,
and give (it) to he who has ten coins.'
25. They said to him,
'Maran, he has ten coins with him!'
26. He said to them,
'I say to you that to all who have,
it will be given to him,
and whoever does not have,
even that which he has will be taken from him.
27. But to those my enemies,
those who did not desire that I rule over them,
bring them and kill them before me!'"
¶28. And when Yeshua said these things, he went forward to go to Urishlim. 29. And when he arrived at Beth-Pageh and Beth-Aniya on the side of the tuora which is called Beth-Zayteh, he sent two of his talmida, 30. and he said to them,
"Go to that village which is opposite us and when you enter in it,
behold you will find a colt that is bound,
which a man has never ridden upon it.
Loose it (and) bring it,
31. and if anyone should ask you why you are loosing it, say thus to him:
'Maran needs (it).'"
32. And those who were sent went and found (it) as he had said to them. 33. And while they were loosing it-- the colt-- its owners said to them, "Why are you loosing that colt?" 34. And they said to them that, "Maran needs (it)." 35. And they brought it to Yeshua and cast their garments upon the colt, and they mounted Yeshua upon it. 36. And when he came, they were spreading their garments on the road. 37. And when he drew near to the descent of the tuora of Beth-Zayteh, the crowd of talmida all began rejoicing and praising Allaha in a loud voice over all the miracles that they had seen. 38. And they were saying,
"Blessed is the malka who comes in the name of Mar-YHWH.
Shlama in heaven,
and shubkha [glory] in the highest!"
39. But some of the Pharisees from among the crowds said to him, "Rabbi, rebuke your talmida!" 40. He said to them,
"I say to you that
if these should be silent,
the rocks would cry out."
¶41. And when he had drawn near and saw the city, he wept over her. 42. And he said,
"If perhaps you had known those things that were for shlamki [your peace],
even if in this your day,
but now they are hidden from your eyes.
43. But the days will come to you when
your enemies will surround you,
and will oppress you from all sides,
44. and will overthrow you and your children within you,
and they will not leave in you a stone upon (another) stone,
because you did not know the time of your visitation."
¶45. And when he entered into the temple, he began to cast out those who were buying and selling in it. 46. And he said to them,
"It is written that,
'My house is a house of prayer,'
but you have made it a 'den of robbers'!"
47. And he would teach every day in the temple, but the rabbi-kahna and the Sapra and elders of the people were seeking to destroy him, 48. and they were not able to find what to do to him, for all the people were clinging to him to hear him.
The Preaching of Luke
1. And it happened on one of the days while he taught the people in the temple and (was) preaching, the rabbi-kahna and the Sapra with the elders arose against him. 2. And they were saying to him,
"Tell us by what authority you do these things,
and who (is) he who gave this authority to you?"
3. Yeshua answered and said to them,
"I will also ask you a question and (you) tell me.
4. The baptism of Yukhanan--
was it from Heaven or from the sons of men?"
5. But they were reasoning within themselves and saying that, "If we say from Heaven, he will say to us, 'Then why did you not believe him?' 6. And if we say from the sons of men, the people will stone us, for they all consider that Yukhanan is a prophet." 7. They said to him that, "We do not know from where it is." 8. Yeshua said to them,
"Neither will I tell to you by what authority I do these things."
¶9. And he began to tell to the people this parable:
"A certain man planted a vineyard
and leased it to the workers
and went away (for) a long time.
10. And in time he sent his servant to the workers
that they might give to him from the fruit of the vineyard.
But the workers beat him
and sent him away empty-handed.
11. And additionally he sent his servant-- another--
and they also to him beat him and cursed him and sent him away empty-handed.
12. And additionally he sent a third
and they, even him, they wounded and cast him out.
13. Mara [the Lord of] the vineyard said,
'What should I do?
I will send my beloved son.
Perhaps they will see him and be ashamed.'
14. But when they the workers saw him,
they were reasoning within themselves and saying,
'This is the heir.
Come let us kill him
and the inheritance will be ours.'
15. And they cast him outside of the vineyard and they killed him.
What therefore will the Lord (of) the vineyard do to them?
16. He will come and destroy those workers
and he will give the vineyard to others."
And when they heard it they said, "This will not happen." 17-18. But he stared at them and said,
"And what is that which is written that,
'The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone.
And whoever falls upon that stone
will be broken.
And whomever that it should fall upon,
it will destroy.'"
19. And the rabbi-kahna and Sapra were wanting to lay hands on him in that hour, for they knew that he had spoken this parable against them, yet were afraid of the people.
¶20. And they sent spies to him who appeared (to be) as zadiqa (men) to catch him in discourse and to deliver him to the judge and to the authority of the governor. 21. And they asked him and said to him, "Malpana, we know that you speak and teach rightly, and you are not a hypocrite. Rather, you teach the way of Allaha in truth. 22. Is it lawful for us to give the head-tax to Caesar or not?" 23. But he perceived their craftiness and said,
"Why do you tempt me?
24. Show me a denarii.
Whose image and inscriptions are on it?"
And they said, "Caesar's." 25. Yeshua said to them,
"Give therefore that which is Caesar's to Caesar,
and that which is Allaha's to Allaha."
26. And they were not able to get one word from him before the people. And they marveled at his answer and they kept silent.
¶27. And some of the Sadducees, those who say that there is no resurrection, drew near and they asked him 28. and said to him, "Malpana, Moshe wrote to us that if a man who has a wife without children should die, his brother should take his wife and raise up seed for his brother.
29. Now there were seven brothers.
The first took a wife
and died without children.
30. And the second took her for his wife
and this one died without children.
31. And again the third took her and likewise also the seven of them.
And they died and did not leave children.
32. And in the end, the woman also died.
33. Therefore, in the resurrection, whose of them will she be (the) wife, for seven of them married her?"
34. Yeshua said to them,
"The sons of this world marry women
and women are (given) to men.
35. But those of that world who are worthy and of the resurrection that is from the dead
do not marry women
nor are women (given) to men.
36. For neither are they able to die again,
for they are as the malakas
and are sons of Allaha because they are sons of the resurrection.
37. Now even Moshe showed that the dead will rise,
for he referred (to it) at the bush when he said,
the Allaheh of Awraham
and the Allaheh of Iskhaq
and the Allaheh of Yaqub.'
38. Now He is not the Allaha of the dead,
but of the living,
for all of them are alive to Him."
39. And some of the Sapra answered and said to him, "Malpana, you have spoken well." 40. And they did not dare to ask him again about anything. 41. And he would say to them,
"How is it that the Sapra say concerning the Meshikha that he is the Son of Dawid, 42-43. and he-- Dawid-- said in the book of the Psalms that,
'Mar-YHWH said to Mari,
'Sit at my right (hand)
until that I put your enemies under your feet.'"
44. Therefore, if Dawid calls him 'Mari,'
how is it that he is his son?"
¶45. And while all of the people were listening, he said to his talmida,
46. "Beware of the Sapra,
who desire to walk in long robes
and love a greeting in the public square
and the chief seats in the assembly
and the chief places at banquets,
47. those who with the pretense of prolonging their prayers
devour the houses of widows.
They will receive a greater judgment."
The Preaching of Luke
1. And Yeshua stared at the rich (men), those who were casting their offerings into the treasury. 2. And he also saw a certain poor widow who cast in two small coins. 3. And he said,
"The truth I say to you that
this poor widow has cast in more than everyone.
4. For these (men), all of them have cast into the beth-qorbana of Allaha
from what was in excess to them,
but this one from her poverty--
she has cast in all that she had owned."
¶5. And while some were speaking about the temple, that it was adorned with beautiful stones and with qorbana, Yeshua said to them,
6. "(About) these things that you see,
the days will come in which not (one) stone will be spared--
(one stone) upon (another) stone that is not pulled down."
7. And they were asking him and said, "Malpana, when will these things be, and what is the sign when these things are near to happening?" 8. But he said to them,
"See (to it that) you are not deceived.
For many will come in my name and will say that,
'ENA-NA the Meshikha!' and 'The time is near!'
But do not go (and follow) after them.
9. And when that you hear of wars and revolutions,
do not have fear,
for these, they are necessary to first happen,
but the end has not yet arrived.
10. For nation will rise against nation
and kingdom against kingdom.
11. And there will be severe earthquakes from place (to) place
and famine and plagues.
And there will be fears and terrors
and great signs will be seen from heaven.
And the winters will be severe.
12. But before all these things,
they will lay hands upon you and persecute you,
and they will deliver you to the assemblies and to the prisons.
And they will bring you before malka and governors because of my name,
13. but it will be to you for a testimony.
14. But place it in your hearts that
you not (try to) learn (how) to answer.
15. For I will give you a mouth and wisdom
so that all your enemies will not be able to stand against it.
16. And your parents and your brothers
and your relatives and your friends
will betray you,
and they will kill some of you.
17. And you will be hated by all men because of my name.
18. Yet not a strand (of hair) from your head will perish,
19. and by your patience you will gain your souls.
20. And when you see that
an army has surrounded it, Urishlim,
then know that its destruction has drawn near to it.
21. Then those who are in Yehuda,
let them flee to the tuora [mountains],
and those who are within it,
let them flee,
and (those) in the villages,
let them not enter into it.
22. Because these are the days of vengeance that
everything that is written might be fulfilled.
23. But woe to those who are pregnant
and to those who are nursing in those days!
For there will be great distress in the land
and wrath upon this people.
24. And they will fall by the edge of the sword
and be led away to every land,
and Urishlim will be trampled by the Gentiles
until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
¶25. And there will be signs in the sun and in the moon and in the stars.
And on earth, distress of the nations
and confusion from the roaring of the sound of the sea,
26. and upheaval that casts out life from men,
because of fear of what is about to come upon the earth.
And the powers of heaven will be shaken.
27. And then they will see the Son of Man
who will come in the clouds with much power and great shubkha [glory].
28. But when that these things begin to happen,
have courage and lift up your heads,
because purqanquon [your deliverance] draws near."
29. And he was speaking to them a parable:
"Look at the fig tree,
and all the trees,
30. that when they bud,
you understand immediately from them that summer draws near.
31. Likewise also you:
when you see these things happening,
know that the Kingdom of Allaha is near.
32. Amain I say to you that
this generation will not pass until all these things occur;
33. heaven and earth will pass away,
yet my words will not pass away.
¶34. But beware in yourselves that
your hearts never become heavy
by extravagance and by drunkenness and by distress of the world,
and that day should come suddenly upon you.
35. For like a snare it will entrap upon all those who dwell upon the face of all the earth.
36. Therefore, be watchful at all times
and pray that you be worthy to escape from
these things that are about to happen,
and (that) you stand before the Son of man."
¶37. And during the day he would teach in the temple, and during the night he would go out and lodge in the tuora that is called Beth-Zayteh. 38. And all the people were coming early to him at the temple to hear his word.
The Preaching of Luke
1. And the Feast of Patira, which is called Petskha, was near. 2. And the rabbi-kahna and Sapra were seeking how they might kill him, for they were afraid of the people.
¶3. And Satana had entered into Yehuda who was called Skaryota, who was from the number of the twelve. 4. And he went (and) spoke with the rabbi-kahna and Sapra and the chief guards of the temple about how he might deliver him to them, 5. and they rejoiced and pledged to give to him money. 6. And he promised them and was seeking an opportunity to deliver him to them away from the crowds.
¶7. And the day of the (Feast of) Patira during which there was the custom that the Petskha be slaughtered arrived. 8. And Yeshua sent Keepa and Yukhanan and said to them,
"Go prepare the Petskha for us that we may eat."
9. And they said to him, "Where do you want us to prepare (it)?" 10. He said to them,
"Behold, when that you enter into the city
you will meet up with a man who is bearing a skin of water.
Go after him and where he enters 11. say to the lord of the house,
'Where is the lodging house
where I may eat the Petskha with my talmida?''
12. And behold he will show you a certain large upper room that is furnished.
13. And they went (and) found it as he said to them, and they prepared the Petskha.
¶14. And when the time arrived, Yeshua came (and) reclined and the twelve Shelikha with him. 15. And he said to them,
"I have greatly desired that I eat this Petskha with you before I suffer,
16. for I say to you that from now on I will not eat it until
it is fulfilled in the Kingdom of Allaha.
17-18. Omitted in Peshitta Text.
¶19. And he took bread and gave thanks and broke (it) and gave (it) to them and said,
"This is my body,
which for your sake is given.
Do this for my memorial."
20. And likewise also concerning the cup, after they had eaten supper, he said,
"This is the cup of the new covenant in my blood,
which is shed for your sake.
21. But behold, the hand of my betrayer is upon the table.
22. And the Son of Man goes as it was determined,
but woe to that man by whose hand he is betrayed."
23. And they began to inquire among themselves about who indeed of them is about to commit this.
¶24. And there was also strife among them about who of them is greater. 25. And he, Yeshua, said to them,
"Of the Gentiles malkihuon [their malka] are their lords
and those who are authorities over them are called doers of good.
26. But you are not thus.
Rather, whomever is great among you
must be as the least,
and whomever who is head
is as a servant.
27. For who is great:
he who reclines, or he who serves?
Is it not he who reclines?[or is it: "It is not he who reclines."]
But I'm among you as someone who serves.
28. And you are those who have continued with me during my trials.
29. And as Abbi has promised to me a kingdom,
I promise to you 30. that you may eat and drink at the table of my kingdom,
and sit upon thrones and judge the twelve tribes of Israel."[or is it: "And as Abbi has promised to me, I promise to you a kingdom"?]
¶31. And Yeshua said to Shimon,
"Shimon, behold, Satana wants to sift all of you like wheat.
32. And I have prayed over you that your faith may not weaken.
Also in time you will turn and strengthen your brothers."
33. And Shimon said to him, "Mari, with you I'm prepared even for prison or for death!"
34. Yeshua said to him,
"I say to you Shimon that
the cock will not crow this day until you deny (me) three times,
that you do not know me."
35. And he said to them,
"When I sent you without purses
and without bags and shoes
why, did you lack anything?"
They said to him, "Nothing." 36. He said to them,
"From now (on) he who has a purse,
let him take (it), and likewise also a bag.
And he who has no sword,
let him sell his garments and buy for himself a sword.
37. For I say to you that
this also that was written is worthy to be fulfilled in me:
that I will be 'numbered with the wicked.'
For all things that concern me will be fulfilled."
38. And they said to him, "Maran, behold here are two swords." He said to them,
"They are sufficient."
¶39. And he departed and went as he was accustomed to the tuora of Beth-Zayteh, and his talmida also went after him.[deleted an "as"] 40. And when he reached the place, he said to them,
"Pray that you may not enter into temptation."
41. And he departed from them about a throw (of) a stone, and he knelt and was praying. 42. And he said,
"Abba, if you desire,
let this cup pass over me,
but not my will,
rather let yours be done."
43. And a malaka from Heaven appeared to strengthen him. 44. And while being in fear, he was praying earnestly and his sweat became like drops of blood, and he fell upon the ground. 45. And he arose from his prayer and came to his talmida and found them while sleeping from sorrow. 46. And he said to them,
"Why are you sleeping?
Arise (and) pray
lest you enter into temptation."
¶47. And as he spoke, behold a crowd with the one who is called Yehuda, one of the twelve, came before them. And he drew near to Yeshua and kissed him, for he had given them this sign, that "Whomever that I kiss is he." 48. Yeshua said to him,
"Yehuda, you betray him-- the Son of Man-- with a kiss?"
49. And when those who were with him saw the thing that happened, they said to him, "Maran, should we strike them with the sword?"
50. And one of them struck to a servant of the Rab-Kahna and severed his right ear. 51. But Yeshua answered and said,
"That is enough!"
And he touched the ear of he who was wounded and healed it. 52. And Yeshua said to those who had come against him, the rabbi-kahna and Sapra and the chief guards of the temple,
"You have come out
against me with swords and with rods,
as against a robber, to seize me.
53. I was among you everyday in the temple,
and you did not lay hands upon me,
but this is your hour and the power of darkness."
¶54. And they seized (him and) brought him to the house of the Rab-Kahna. And Shimon followed him from a distance. 55. And they kindled a fire in the midst of the courtyard, and they were sitting around it, and Shimon was also sitting among them. 56. And a certain young woman saw him while he sat by the fire. And she stared at him and said, "This (man) was also with him." 57. But he denied it and said, "Woman, I do not know him!" 58. And after a little while another saw him and said to him, "You also are with them." But Keepa said, "I'm not!" 59. And after one hour another was affirming and said, "Certainly this (man) was also with him, for he is even a Galilean!" 60. Keepa said, "Man, I do not know what you say!" And immediately while he spoke, the cock crowed. 61. And Yeshua turned and stared at Keepa, and Shimon remembered the word of Maran that he had spoken to him, that "Before the cock will crow, you will deny me three times." 62. And Shimon went outside (and) wept bitterly.
¶63. And the men who were holding Yeshua were mocking him 64. and were covering him and were striking him on his face and saying, "Prophesy! Who struck you?" 65. And many other things they were blasphemously speaking and saying against him.
¶66. And when the day dawned, the elders and the rabbi-kahna and Sapra gathered and they took him up to their council chamber. 67. And they said to him, "If you are the Meshikha, tell us!" He said to them,
"If I tell you,
you will not believe me.
68. And if I ask you,
you will not give me an answer,
nor will you release me.
69. From now (on), the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the power of Allaha."
70. And all of them said, "Are you therefore the Son of Allaha?" Yeshua said to them,
"You say that ENA-NA!"
71. They said, "Why, are witnesses needed anymore by us? For we have heard (it) from his mouth!"
The Preaching of Luke
1. And all their assembly arose and brought him to Peelatos. 2. And they began accusing him and saying, "We have found that this man, he is deceiving our people. And he hesitates so that he might not give the head-tax to Caesar. And he says concerning himself that he is a malka, the Meshikha." 3. And Peelatos asked him and said to him, "Are you the malka of the Yehudeans?" He said to him,
"You say (it)!"
4. And Peelatos said to the rabbi-kahna and everyone, "I'm not able (to find) any cause against this man." 5. But they were crying out and saying that, "He stirs up our people while teaching in all Yehuda. And he started from Galeela and (has progressed) to here." 6. And when Peelatos heard the name of Galeela, he inquired if the man is a Galilean. 7. And when he realized that he was from under the authority of Herodus, he sent him to (that jurisdiction) of Herodus, because he was in Urishlim in those days.
¶8. And when Herodus saw Yeshua, he was very glad for he had desired to see him for a long time, because he had heard many things about him and had thought that he might see some sign from him. 9. And he did ask him many questions, but Yeshua, he did not give any answer. 10. And the rabbi-kahna and Sapra did arise and were accusing him vehemently. 11. And Herodus insulted him, he and his soldiers, and when he had mocked (him), he clothed him (with) garments of purple and sent him to Peelatos. 12. And in that day, Peelatos and Herodus became friends with each other, for enmity had existed from the beginning between them.
¶13. Now Peelatos called to the rabbi-kahna and the rulers of the people. 14. And he said to them, "You brought this man to me as a subverter (of) your people, and behold I have examined him before your eyes and I have not found any fault in this man from all that you have brought against him. 15. Nor has Herodus, for I sent him to him and behold, nothing that is worthy of death has been committed by him. 16. I will chastise him therefore and release him"-- 17. for there was a custom that he release to them one at the feast. 18. But the crowd all cried out and said, "Take this man away and release Bar-Abba to us!"-- 19. he who was cast into prison because of murder and an insurrection that had occurred in the city. 20. And again Peelatos spoke with them while desiring to release Yeshua. 21. But they were crying out and saying, "Crucify him! Crucify him!" 22. But for the third time he said to them, "For what evil has this man done? I have not found in him any cause that is worthy of death. I will therefore chastise him and release him." 23. But they were insisting in a high voice and were asking him to crucify him, and their voice was prevailing, theirs and that of the rabbi-kahna. 24. And Peelatos commanded that their request be granted. 25. And he released to them him who because of insurrection and murder was cast into prison, he whom they requested. But he delivered Yeshua to their will.
¶26. And as they were leading him, they seized Shimon, a Cyrenian who had come from a village, and placed a execution-stake upon him that he might bear it after Yeshua. 27. And a multitude of people was coming after him, and women who were wailing and mourning for him. 28. And Yeshua turned and said to them,
"Daughters of Urishlim,
do not cry for me,
but cry for yourselves
and for your children.
29. For behold the days are coming in which they will say,
'Blessed are the barren
and the wombs that have not given birth
and the breasts that have not nursed.'
30. Then you will begin to say to the tuoras,
'Fall upon us!'
and to the heights,
31. For if to the green wood they do these things,
what will happen to the dry?"
¶32. And two others-- doers of evil-- were coming with him to be killed. 33. And when they came to a certain place that is called "Skull," they crucified him there and those doers of evil, one at his right and one at his left. 34. And Yeshua was saying,
"Abba, forgive them
for they do not know what they are doing."
And they divided his clothing and cast lots for them. 35. And the people were standing and looking, and
the rulers were also mocking him and saying, "He made others live. Let him save himself if he is the Meshikha, the chosen of Allaha!" 36. And the soldiers were also mocking him while drawing near to him and offering to him vinegar 37. and saying to him, "If you are the malka of the Yehudeans, save yourself!" 38. And there was also an inscription that was written over him (in) Greek and Roman and Hebrew: "This is the malka of the Yehudeans."
¶39. And one of those doers of evil who was crucified with him was blaspheming against him and said, "If you are the Meshikha, save yourself and save us also!" 40. And his companion rebuked him and said to him, "You are not even afraid of Allaha, because even you are in that judgment, 41. and we as justly, for we are deserving, as we have done we have been repaid. But this man, that which is hateful has not been done by him." 42. And he said to Yeshua, "Remember me Mari when you come in your Kingdom." 43. Yeshua said to him,
"Amain I say to you today that,
you will be with me in pardasa [paradise]."
¶44. And about six hours had passed and darkness was over all the land until the ninth hour. 45. And the sun darkened and the veil of the temple was torn from its middle. 46. And Yeshua cried out with a loud voice and said,
"Abbi, into your hands I place ruokhi [my spirit]!"
He said this and it was finished.
¶47. And when the centurion saw the thing that happened, he praised Allaha and said, "Certainly this man was zadiqa!" 48. And all the crowds, those who were gathered for this spectacle, when they saw the thing that happened, returned while beating upon their breasts. 49. And all the acquaintances of Yeshua and the women-- those who had come with him from Galeela-- they were standing from afar and had seen these things.
¶50. And a certain man whose name was Yosip, a counselor from Ramtha a city of Yehuda, was a good and zadiqa man; 51. this man did not agree with their will and with their actions, and was awaiting the Kingdom of Allaha. 52. This man drew near to Peelatos and asked for the body of Yeshua. 53. And he took it down and wrapped it in a shroud of linen and laid it in a hewn tomb, that which no man had yet been placed in it. 54. And the day was setting and the Shabbata was approaching.
¶55. And those women who came with him from Galeela were drawing near, and they saw the tomb, and how his body had been placed. 56. And they returned (and) prepared spices and perfume and rested on the Shabbata as was commanded.
The Preaching of Luke
1. Now on the first (day) of the week, at dawn while (still) dark, they came to the tomb and brought the spices, those which they had prepared. And there were other women with them. 2. And they found that the stone was rolled away from the tomb, 3. and they entered and they did not find the body of Yeshua. 4. And it happened that while they were astonished about this, behold two men stood above them and their clothing was shining. 5. And they were in fear and bowed their faces to the ground. And they said to them, "Why do you seek the living among the dead? 6. He is not here. He has arisen. Remember that he spoke with you while he (was) in Galeela, 7. and he did say that, 'It (is) necessary (for) the Son of Man to be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and on the third day he will rise.'" 8. And they remembered his words. 9. And they returned from the grave and told all these things to the eleven and to the rest. 10. Now they were Maryam of Magdala and Yokan and Maryam the mother of Yaqub and others who were with them, those who had told the Shelikha. 11. And these words seemed as foolishness in their eyes, and they did not believe them. 12. And Shimon rose and ran to the grave, peeked in, and saw the cloth laid alone, and went away while wondering in himself about what had happened.
¶13. And behold, on that day two of them were going to a village, whose name was Emmaus, and it was distant from Urishlim (by) sixty furlongs. 14. And they were talking with one another about all these things that had transpired. 15. And while they were speaking and questioning with one another, Yeshua came and met up with them and he was walking with them. 16. And their eyes were so that they did not recognize him. 17. And he said to them,
"What are these words that you speak with one another
while you are walking and you are sad?"
18. And one of them whose name was Qalyopa answered and said to him, "Are you indeed only a stranger from Urishlim that you do not know what has happened in it in these days?" 19. He said to them,
They told him about "Yeshua, he who was from Nasrath, a man who was a prophet and he was mighty in word and in deed before Allaha and before all of the people. 20. And the rabbi-kahna and elders delivered him to a judgment of death and crucified him. 21. And we were hoping that he was about to save Israel. And behold, three days (have passed) since all these things happened. 22. But also (some) women from us astonished us, for they went early to the tomb. 23. And when they did not find his body, they came to us saying that, 'We saw malaka there.' And they said concerning him that 'he is alive.' 24. And also (some) women from us went to the tomb and found likewise as what the (other) women had said, and they did not see him." 25. Then Yeshua said to them,
"Oh fools and hardened of heart (and) slow to believe in all those (things) that the prophets spoke!
26. Were not these things necessary that the Meshikha endure
and to enter into tishbokhtheh
27. And he did begin from Moshe and from all the prophets and did expound to them about himself from all the Scriptures. 28. And they were approaching to the village, that which they were going to, and he did make them suppose that he was going to a distant place. 29. And they urged him and said to him, "Remain with us because the day is now ending and (it is) becoming dark." And he entered to stay with them. 30. And it happened that when he reclined among them, he took bread and barek [blessed] (it) and broke (it) and gave (it) to them. 31. And immediately their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he was taken from them. 32. And they were speaking to one another, "Was not our heart heavy within us while he spoke with us on the road and expounded the Scriptures to us?"
¶33. And they arose in that hour and returned to Urishlim and they found the eleven who were gathered, and those who were with them 34. while saying that, "Maran has certainly arisen and appeared to Shimon!" 35. and also those related those things that happened on the road and how he was made known to them while breaking bread.
¶36. And while they were speaking these things, Yeshua stood among them and said to them,
"Shlama be with you.
It is I.
Do not be afraid."
And they were confused and were in fear, for they were thinking that they had seen a Rukha. 38. And Yeshua said to them,
"Why are you troubled?
And why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
39. Look at my hands and my feet, for it is I.
Feel me and realize that a Rukha has no flesh and bones,
as that you see that I have."
40. And as he said these things he showed them his hands and his feet, 41. and even while then they were not believing for their joy, and they were astonished. He said to them,
"(Do) you have something here to eat?"
42. And they gave to him a portion of a fish that was broiled and of a honeycomb. 43. And he took (it) and ate (it) before their eyes. 44. And he said to them,
"These are the words that
I spoke with you while I was with you,
that it was necessary that all things that were written
in the namusa of Moshe and in the prophets and in the Psalms
concerning me be fulfilled."
45. Then he opened their mind to understand the Scriptures. 46. And he said to them that,
"Thus it is written and thus it was right that the Meshikha suffer
and rise from the dead on the third day,
47. and that he preached repentance for the remission of sins in his name in all nations,
and (that) the beginning would be from Urishlim.
48. And you are a witness of these things.
49. And I will send upon you the promise of Abbi,
but you stay in the city Urishlim until
you be clothed with power from On High."
¶50. And he took them out up to Beth-Aniya and raised his hands and barek [blessed] them. 51. And it happened that while he blessed them, he was separated from them and ascended into heaven. 52. And they worshipped him and returned to Urishlim with great joy. 53. And at all times, they were in the temple while praising and blessing Allaha. Amain.
