Prokeimenon. Grave Tone. Psalm 28.11,1.
The Lord will give strength to his people.
Verse: Bring to the Lord, O sons of God, bring to the Lord honor and glory.
The reading is from St. Paul's Letter to the Ephesians 2:14-22.
Brethren, Christ is our peace, who has made us both one, and has broken down the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law of commandments and ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby bringing the hostility to an end. And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near; for through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord; in whom you also are built into it for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
Προκείμενον. Grave Tone. ΨΑΛΜΟΙ 28.11,1.
Κύριος ἰσχὺν τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ δώσει.
Στίχ. Ἐνέγκατε τῷ Κυρίῳ υἱοὶ Θεοῦ, ἐνέγκατε τῷ Κυρίῳ δόξαν καὶ τιμήν.
τὸ Ἀνάγνωσμα Πρὸς Ἐφεσίους 2:14-22.
Ἀδελφοί, Χριστός ἐστιν ἡ εἰρήνη ἡμῶν, ὁ ποιήσας τὰ ἀμφότερα ἕν, καὶ τὸ μεσότοιχον τοῦ φραγμοῦ λύσας, τήν ἔχθραν ἐν τῇ σαρκί αὐτοῦ, τὸν νόμον τῶν ἐντολῶν ἐν δόγμασιν, καταργήσας· ἵνα τοὺς δύο κτίσῃ ἐν ἑαὐτῷ εἰς ἕνα καινὸν ἄνθρωπον, ποιῶν εἰρήνην, καὶ ἀποκαταλλάξῃ τοὺς ἀμφοτέρους ἐν ἑνὶ σώματι τῷ θεῷ διὰ τοῦ σταυροῦ, ἀποκτείνας τὴν ἔχθραν ἐν αὐτῷ· καὶ ἐλθὼν εὐηγγελίσατο εἰρήνην ὑμῖν τοῖς μακρὰν καὶ τοῖς ἐγγύς· ὅτι διʼ αὐτοῦ ἔχομεν τὴν προσαγωγὴν οἱ ἀμφότεροι ἐν ἑνὶ πνεύματι πρὸς τὸν πατέρα. Ἄρα οὖν οὐκέτι ἐστὲ ξένοι καὶ πάροικοι, ἀλλὰ συμπολῖται τῶν ἁγίων καὶ οἰκεῖοι τοῦ θεοῦ, ἐποικοδομηθέντες ἐπὶ τῷ θεμελίῳ τῶν ἀποστόλων καὶ προφητῶν, ὄντος ἀκρογωνιαίου αὐτοῦ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ, ἐν ᾧ πᾶσα οἰκοδομὴ συναρμολογουμένη αὔξει εἰς ναὸν ἅγιον ἐν κυρίῳ, ἐν ᾧ καὶ ὑμεῖς συνοικοδομεῖσθε εἰς κατοικητήριον τοῦ θεοῦ ἐν πνεύματι.

Verse: قدموا للرب يا أبناء الله قدموا للرب مجداً وكرامة
فصل من رسالة بولس الى أَفسس 2: 14-22.
يَُّا إِخْوَة، الْمَسِيحُ هُوَ سَلاَمُنَا، الَّذِي جَعَلَ الاثْنَيْنِ وَاحِداً، وَنَقَضَ حَائِطَ السِّيَاجِ الْمُتَوَسِّطَ أَيِ الْعَدَاوَةَ. مُبْطِلاً بِجَسَدِهِ نَامُوسَ الْوَصَايَا فِي فَرَائِضَ، لِكَيْ يَخْلُقَ الاثْنَيْنِ فِي نَفْسِهِ إِنْسَاناً وَاحِداً جَدِيداً، صَانِعاً سَلاَماً، وَيُصَالِحَ الاثْنَيْنِ فِي جَسَدٍ وَاحِدٍ مَعَ اللهِ بِالصَّلِيبِ، قَاتِلاً الْعَدَاوَةَ بِهِ. فَجَاءَ وَبَشَّرَكُمْ بِسَلاَمٍ، أَنْتُمُ الْبَعِيدِينَ وَالْقَرِيبِينَ. لأَنَّ بِهِ لَنَا كِلَيْنَا قُدُوماً فِي رُوحٍ وَاحِدٍ إِلَى الآبِ. فَلَسْتُمْ إِذاً بَعْدُ غُرَبَاءَ وَنُزُلاً، بَلْ رَعِيَّةٌ مَعَ الْقِدِّيسِينَ وَأَهْلِ بَيْتِ اللهِ، مَبْنِيِّينَ عَلَى أَسَاسِ الرُّسُلِ وَالأَنْبِيَاءِ، وَيَسُوعُ الْمَسِيحُ نَفْسُهُ حَجَرُ الزَّاوِيَةِ، الَّذِي فِيهِ كُلُّ الْبِنَاءِ مُرَكَّباً مَعاً يَنْمُو هَيْكَلاً مُقَدَّساً فِي الرَّبِّ. الَّذِي فِيهِ أَنْتُمْ أَيْضاً مَبْنِيُّونَ مَعاً، مَسْكَناً لِلَّهِ فِي الرُّوحِ.
9th Sunday of Luke
The Reading is from Luke 12:16-21
The Lord said this parable: "The land of a rich man brought forth plentifully; and he thought to himself, 'What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?' And he said, 'I will do this: I will pull down my barns, and build larger ones; and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I will say to my soul, 'Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.' But God said to him, 'Fool! This night your soul is required of you; and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?' So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God." As he said these things, he cried out: "He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
9th Sunday of Luke
Κατὰ Λουκᾶν 12:16-21
Εἶπεν ὁ Κύριος τήν παραβολὴν ταύτην· Ἀνθρώπου τινὸς πλουσίου εὐφόρησεν ἡ χώρα· καὶ διελογίζετο ἐν ἑαυτῷ λέγων· τί ποιήσω, ὅτι οὐκ ἔχω ποῦ συνάξω τοὺς καρπούς μου; καὶ εἶπε· τοῦτο ποιήσω· καθελῶ μου τὰς ἀποθήκας καὶ μείζονας οἰκοδομήσω, καὶ συνάξω ἐκεῖ πάντα τὰ γενήματά μου καὶ τὰ ἀγαθά μου, καὶ ἐρῶ τῇ ψυχῇ μου· ψυχή, ἔχεις πολλὰ ἀγαθὰ κείμενα εἰς ἔτη πολλά· ἀναπαύου, φάγε, πίε, εὐφραίνου. εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ ὁ Θεός· ἄφρον, ταύτῃ τῇ νυκτὶ τὴν ψυχήν σου ἀπαιτοῦσιν ἀπὸ σοῦ· ἃ δὲ ἡτοίμασας τίνι ἔσται; οὕτως ὁ θησαυρίζων ἑαυτῷ, καὶ μὴ εἰς Θεὸν πλουτῶν.
16 قال الرب هذا المثل : ((إِنْسَانٌ غَنِيٌّ أَخْصَبَتْ كُورَتُهُ ، 17فَفَكَّرَ فِي نَفْسِهِ قَائِلاً: مَاذَا أَعْمَلُ ، لأَنْ لَيْسَ لِي مَوْضِعٌ أَجْمَعُ فِيهِ أَثْمَارِي؟ 18وَقَالَ: أَعْمَلُ هَذَا: أَهْدِمُ مَخَازِنِي وَأَبْنِي أَعْظَمَ ، وَأَجْمَعُ هُنَاكَ جَمِيعَ غَلاَّتِي وَخَيْرَاتِي ، 19وَأَقُولُ لِنَفْسِي: يَا نَفْسُ لَكِ خَيْرَاتٌ كَثِيرَةٌ ، مَوْضُوعَةٌ لِسِنِينَ كَثِيرَةٍ. اِسْتَرِيحِي وَكُلِي وَاشْرَبِي وَافْرَحِي! 20فَقَالَ لَهُ اللهُ: يَا غَبِيُّ ! هَذِهِ اللَّيْلَةَ تُطْلَبُ نَفْسُكَ مِنْكَ ، فَهَذِهِ الَّتِي أَعْدَدْتَهَا لِمَنْ تَكُونُ؟ 21هَكَذَا الَّذِي يَكْنِزُ لِنَفْسِهِ وَلَيْسَ هُوَ غَنِيّاً لِلَّهِ ولما قال هذا نادى من له أذنان للسمع فليسمع)).
