Chapter 1

1 ܟܬܒܐ ܩܕܡܝܐ ܟܬܒܬ ܐܘ ܬܐܘܦܝܠܐ ܥܠ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܫܪܝ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܘܠܡܠܦܘ
, The former book I wrote, Oh Theophilus, about all the things which our Lord Jesus the Messiah did and taught from the beginning
2 ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܗܘ ܕܒܗ ܐܤܬܠܩ ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܕܦܩܕ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܫܠܝܚܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܓܒܐ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
up until that day when he was taken up, after he had instructed those Apostles whom he had chosen by the Holy Spirit 
3 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܦ ܚܘܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܢܦܫܗ ܟܕ ܚܝ ܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܕܚܫ ܒܐܬܘܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ ܒܝܘܡܝܢ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܟܕ ܡܬܚܙܐ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܥܠ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
Those to whom also he revealed himself alive after he had suffered, by numerous signs, during forty days, while he was seen by them, and spoke about the Realm of God 
4 ܘܟܕ ܐܟܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܚܡܐ ܦܩܕ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܡܢ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܠܐ ܢܦܪܩܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܕܢܩܘܘܢ ܠܫܘܘܕܝܗ ܕܐܒܐ ܗܘ ܕܫܡܥܬܘܢ ܡܢܝ
And while he ate bread with them, he instructed them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father: He, about whom you have heard from me
5 ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܥܡܕ ܒܡܝܐ ܘܐܢܬܘܢ ܬܥܡܕܘܢ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܠܐ ܒܬܪ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ
For John baptized with water, and you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit, after not many days
6 ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܟܕ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܫܐܠܘܗܝ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗ ܡܪܢ ܐܢ ܒܗܢܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܡܦܢܐ ܐܢܬ ܡܠܟܘܬܐ ܠܐܝܤܪܝܠ
? Now while they gathered, they asked him and said to him: Our Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel
7 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܕܝܠܟܘܢ ܗܕܐ ܠܡܕܥ ܙܒܢܐ ܐܘ ܙܒܢܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܒܐ ܤܡ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܫܘܠܛܢܐ ܕܢܦܫܗ
He said to them: It is not yours to know the time, or those dates, which the Father has decided by his own authority 
8 ܐܠܐ ܟܕ ܬܐܬܐ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܥܠܝܟܘܢ ܬܩܒܠܘܢ ܚܝܠܐ ܘܬܗܘܘܢ ܠܝ ܤܗܕܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܒܟܠܗ ܝܗܘܕ ܘܐܦ ܒܝܬ ܫܡܪܝܐ ܘܥܕܡܐ ܠܤܘܦܝܗ ܕܐܪܥܐ
But when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you will receive power, and will be witnesses for me in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and also among the Samaritans, and unto the ends of the earth
9 ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܟܕ ܚܙܝܢ ܠܗ ܐܤܬܠܩ ܘܥܢܢܐ ܩܒܠܬܗ ܘܐܬܟܤܝ ܡܢ ܥܝܢܝܗܘܢ
And as he spoke these things, they watched him while he was taken up, and a cloud received him, and he was hidden from their eyes
10 ܘܟܕ ܚܝܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܟܕ ܗܘ ܐܙܠ ܗܘܐ ܐܫܬܟܚܘ ܬܪܝܢ ܓܒܪܝܢ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܒܠܒܘܫܐ ܚܘܪܐ
, And while they were staring into heaven as he was departing, two men were found standing near them, in white raiment
11 ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܓܠܝܠܝܐ ܡܢܐ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܚܝܪܝܢ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܗܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܐܤܬܠܩ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܠܫܡܝܐ ܗܟܢܐ ܢܐܬܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܚܙܝܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܕܤܠܩ ܠܫܡܝܐ
And they said to them: Galilean men, why are you standing and staring into heaven? This Jesus, who is taken up from you to heaven, so likewise will he come, just as you have seen him ascend to heaven
12 ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪܟܢ ܗܦܟܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܡܢ ܛܘܪܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܙܝܬܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܦܪܝܩ ܡܢܗ ܐܝܟ ܫܒܥܐ ܐܤܛܕܘܢ
And afterwards they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called the place of Olives, which was near to Jerusalem, and a distance of about seven furlongs from it
13 ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܕܥܠܘ ܤܠܩܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܥܠܝܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗ ܦܛܪܘܤ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܐܢܕܪܐܘܤ ܘܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܘܬܐܘܡܐ ܘܡܬܝ ܘܒܪ ܬܘܠܡܝ ܘܝܥܩܘܒ ܒܪ ܚܠܦܝ ܘܫܡܥܘܢ ܛܢܢܐ ܘܝܗܘܕܐ ܒܪ ܝܥܩܘܒ
And when they arrived, they went to an upper room; where were Peter, and John, and James, and Andrew, and Philip, and Thomas, and Matthew, and Bartholomew, and James the son of Alpheus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the son of James
14 ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܐܡܝܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܨܠܘܬܐ ܒܚܕܐ ܢܦܫ ܥܡ ܢܫܐ ܘܥܡ ܡܪܝܡ ܐܡܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܘܥܡ ܐܚܘܗܝ
All these joined in continuous prayer, with one soul, together with the women, and with Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren
15 ܘܒܗܘܢ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܩܡ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܡܨܥܬ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܬܡܢ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐܐ ܘܥܤܪܝܢ ܘܐܡܪ
: And among them in those days arose Simon Kephas amid the disciples, - the persons there gathered being about one hundred and twenty, - and said
16 ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܙܕܩ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܬܡܠܐ ܟܬܒܐ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܩܕܡ ܐܡܪ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܒܦܘܡܗ ܕܕܘܝܕ ܥܠ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܗܘ ܕܗܘܐ ܡܕܒܪܢܐ ܠܗܢܘܢ ܕܐܚܕܘ ܠܝܫܘܥ
Men, Brothers, it was right that the scripture should be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit foretold, thru David's mouth, concerning Judas who was guide to them that arrested Jesus
17 ܡܛܠ ܕܡܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܢ ܘܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܦܤܐ ܒܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܗܕܐ
For he was numbered with us, and had a part in this ministry
18 ܗܢܘ ܕܩܢܐ ܠܗ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܡܢ ܐܓܪܐ ܕܚܛܝܬܐ ܘܢܦܠ ܥܠ ܐܦܘܗܝ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܘܐܬܦܪܬ ܡܢ ܡܨܥܬܗ ܘܐܬܐܫܕ ܟܠܗ ܓܘܝܗ
He bought a field with the reward of sin, and he fell headlong on the ground, and burst wide open, and all his insides poured out
19 ܘܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܐܬܝܕܥܬ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܘܗܟܢܐ ܐܬܩܪܝܬ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܗܝ ܒܠܫܢܗ ܕܐܬܪܐ ܚܩܠ ܕܡܐ ܕܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܬܘܪܓܡܗ ܩܘܪܝܬ ܕܡ
And this became known to all who lived in Jerusalem, and thus the field was called, in the language of the region, Khakel-Dema, which means Field of Blood
20 ܟܬܝܒ ܓܝܪ ܒܤܦܪܐ ܕܡܙܡܘܪܐ ܕܕܝܪܗ ܬܗܘܐ ܚܪܒܐ ܘܥܡܘܪ ܠܐ ܢܗܘܐ ܒܗ ܘܬܫܡܫܬܗ ܢܤܒ ܐܚܪܝܢ
For it is written in the book of Psalms: Let his dwelling be desolate, and let no one live in it; and, let another take his office
21 ܘܠܝܐ ܗܝ ܗܟܝܠ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܗܘܘ ܥܡܢ ܒܗܢܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܟܠܗ ܕܒܗ ܥܠ ܘܢܦܩ ܥܠܝܢ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ
It should therefore be, that one of these men, who were among us the whole time that our Lord Jesus entered in and went out with us
22 ܕܐܩܦ ܡܢ ܡܥܡܘܕܝܬܗ ܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܕܐܤܬܠܩ ܡܢ ܠܘܬܢ ܕܗܘ ܢܗܘܐ ܥܡܢ ܤܗܕܐ ܕܩܝܡܬܗ
Who went out from the baptism of John, until the day he was taken up from us, - that he may be with us as a witness of His resurrection
23 ܘܐܩܝܡܘ ܬܪܝܢ ܠܝܘܤܦ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܒܪܫܒܐ ܕܐܫܬܡܝ ܝܘܤܛܘܤ ܘܠܡܬܝܐ
And they nominated two, Joseph called Bar-Shaba, whose surname was Justus, and Matthias
24 ܘܟܕ ܨܠܝܘ ܐܡܪܘ ܐܢܬ ܡܪܝܐ ܝܕܥ ܕܒܠܒܘܬܐ ܕܟܠ ܚܘܐ ܚܕ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܓܒܐ ܐܢܬ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܬܪܝܗܘܢ
, And after they prayed, they said: You, Lord, know what is in the hearts of everyone, show us which you have chosen of these two
25 ܕܗܘ ܢܩܒܠ ܦܤܐ ܕܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܘܫܠܝܚܘܬܐ ܕܡܢܗ ܦܪܩ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܕܢܐܙܠ ܠܗ ܠܐܬܪܗ
that he should take part in this ministry and Apostolate, which Judas broke away from, to go to his place
26 ܘܐܪܡܝܘ ܦܨܐ ܘܤܠܩܬ ܠܡܬܝܐ ܘܐܬܡܢܝ ܥܡ ܚܕܥܤܪ ܫܠܝܚܐ
And they drew lots, and it came upon Matthias, and he was numbered with the eleven Apostles

Chapter 2

1 ܘܟܕ ܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܦܢܛܩܘܤܛܐ ܟܕ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܟܚܕܐ
, And after the days of Pentecost came, as all were gathered together
2 ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܫܠܝܐ ܡܢ ܫܡܝܐ ܩܠܐ ܐܝܟ ܪܘܚܐ ܥܙܝܙܬܐ ܘܐܬܡܠܝ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܗ ܟܠܗ ܒܝܬܐ ܗܘ ܕܒܗ ܝܬܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ
there was suddenly a sound from heaven, like a wailing wind, and filled that whole house in which they were sitting
3 ܘܐܬܚܙܝܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܫܢܐ ܕܡܬܦܠܓܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܝܟ ܢܘܪܐ ܘܝܬܒܘ ܥܠ ܚܕ ܚܕ ܡܢܗܘܢ
And there appeared to them were tongues like flame, which separated and rested upon everyone of them
4 ܘܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܐܩܦܘ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ ܒܠܫܢ ܠܫܢ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܝܗܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and were driven to speak in other languages, just as the Spirit gave them to speak
5 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܕܕܚܠܝܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܡܢ ܟܠ ܥܡܡܐ ܕܬܚܝܬ ܫܡܝܐ
Now there at Jerusalem were staying men who were God-fearing, Jews from all the nations under heaven
6 ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܩܠܐ ܗܘ ܟܢܫ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܘܐܫܬܓܫ ܡܛܠ ܕܫܡܥ ܗܘܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܠܫܢܝܗܘܢ
And when that sound happened, all the people assembled together; and they were bewildered, because they all heard them speaking in their own languages
7 ܬܗܝܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܡܬܕܡܪܝܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܠܐ ܗܐ ܓܠܝܠܝܐ ܐܢܘܢ
? And they were all amazed, and wondered, while saying to one another: These who speak, behold, are not all of them Galileans
8 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܚܢܢ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܠܫܢܗ ܕܒܗ ܝܠܝܕܝܢ ܚܢܢ
? And how do we hear each man in the language to which we were born
9 ܦܪܬܘܝܐ ܘܡܕܝܐ ܘܐܠܢܝܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܝܬ ܢܗܪܝܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܩܦܘܕܩܝܐ ܘܕܡܢ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܦܢܛܘܤ ܘܕܐܤܝܐ
Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and those living between the rivers, Jews and Cappadocians, and those from the region of Pontus and of Asia
10ܕܡܢ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܦܪܘܓܝܐ ܘܕܦܡܦܘܠܝܐ ܘܕܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܕܐܬܪܘܬܐ ܕܠܘܒܐ ܕܩܪܝܒܝܢ ܠܩܘܪܝܢܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܬܘ ܡܢ ܪܗܘܡܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܓܝܘܪܐ
and those from the region of Phrygia, and of Pamphylia, and of Egypt, and of the parts of Lybia near Cyrene, and those who have come from Rome, Jews and new converts
11 ܘܕܡܢ ܩܪܛܐ ܘܥܪܒܝܐ ܗܐ ܫܡܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܒܠܫܢܝܢ ܕܝܠܢ ܬܕܡܪܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ
and those from Crete, and Arabians Yet, we hear them speak in our own languages of the wonders of God
12 ܡܬܕܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܘܬܘܝܪܝܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ ܕܡܢܐ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ ܨܒܘܬܐ
? And they all wondered and were amazed, saying one to another: What is all this
13 ܐܚܪܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܡܡܝܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܐܪܝܬܐ ܐܫܬܝܘ ܘܪܘܝܘ
But others made fun of them, saying: They have been drinking new wine, and are now drunk
14ܬܪܟܢ ܩܡ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܥܡ ܚܕܥܤܪ ܫܠܝܚܝܢ ܘܐܪܝܡ ܩܠܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܥܡܪܝܢ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܗܕܐ ܬܬܝܕܥ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܨܘܬܘ ܡܠܝ
And afterwards Simon Kephas rose up, with the eleven Apostles, and raised his voice, and said to them: Men, Jews, and all you that live in Jerusalem; let this be known to you, and heed my words
15 ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܤܒܪܝܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܪܘܝܢ ܕܗܐ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܗܫܐ ܬܠܬ ܐܢܝܢ ܫܥܝܢ
For it is not as you think that these men are drunk: for behold, up until now it is only the third hour
16 ܐܠܐ ܗܕܐ ܗܝ ܕܐܡܝܪܐ ܒܝܘܐܝܠ ܢܒܝܐ
: But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel
17 ܢܗܘܐ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܐܚܪܝܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܫܘܕ ܪܘܚܝ ܥܠ ܟܠ ܒܤܪ ܘܢܬܢܒܘܢ ܒܢܝܟܘܢ ܘܒܢܬܟܘܢ ܘܓܕܘܕܝܟܘܢ ܚܙܘܢܐ ܢܚܙܘܢ ܘܩܫܝܫܝܟܘܢ ܚܠܡܐ ܢܚܠܡܘܢ
It will be in the last days, said God, that I will pour out my Spirit on all mankind: and your sons and your daughters will prophesy, and your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams
18 ܘܥܠ ܥܒܕܝ ܘܥܠ ܐܡܗܬܝ ܐܫܘܕ ܪܘܚܝ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܢܬܢܒܘܢ
And even on my servants and my handmaids will I pour my Spirit, in those days, and they will prophesy 
19 ܘܐܬܠ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܓܒܪܘܬܐ ܥܠ ܐܪܥܐ ܕܡܐ ܘܢܘܪܐ ܘܥܛܪܐ ܕܬܢܢܐ
And I will give signs in heaven, and wonders on earth, blood, and fire, and plumes of smoke
20 ܫܡܫܐ ܢܬܚܠܦ ܒܥܡܛܢܐ ܘܤܗܪܐ ܒܕܡܐ ܥܕܠܐ ܢܐܬܐ ܝܘܡܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܪܒܐ ܘܕܚܝܠܐ
And the sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and wondrous day of the Lord will come
21 ܘܢܗܘܐ ܟܠ ܕܢܩܪܐ ܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܢܚܐ
And it will be that all who will call on the name of the Lord will be saved
22 ܓܒܪܐ ܒܢܝ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܫܡܥܘ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܒܚܝܠܐ ܘܒܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܒܓܒܪܘܬܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܥܒܕ ܒܝܢܬܟܘܢ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
Men, sons of Israel, hear these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man was shown among you by God, by those miracles and with signs which God did among you by his hand, as you yourselves know;
23 ܗܢܐ ܕܦܪܝܫ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܠܗܕܐ ܒܡܩܕܡܘܬ ܝܕܥܬܗ ܘܒܨܒܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܫܠܡܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܪܫܝܥܐ ܘܙܩܦܬܘܢ ܘܩܛܠܬܘܢ
This man, who was set apart for this, by the foreknowledge and the will of God, you delivered into the hands of the wicked, and have crucified and killed him
24 ܐܠܗܐ ܕܝܢ ܐܩܝܡܗ ܘܫܪܐ ܚܒܠܝܗ ܕܫܝܘܠ ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܐ ܗܘܬ ܕܢܬܬܚܕ ܒܗ ܒܫܝܘܠ
But God has raised him, and has undone the ties to the grave; because it was impossible that he be held in the grave
25 ܕܘܝܕ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܡܩܕܡ ܗܘܝܬ ܚܙܐ ܠܡܪܝ ܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܕܥܠ ܝܡܝܢܝ ܗܘ ܕܠܐ ܐܙܘܥ
For David said of him: I saw my Lord before me always, for he is on my right hand, so that I will not be shaken
26 ܡܛܠ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܒܤܡ ܠܒܝ ܘܪܘܙܬ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܝ ܘܐܦ ܦܓܪܝ ܢܓܢ ܥܠ ܤܒܪܐ
, Therefore my heart rejoices, and my prayers exult, and my body, too, will rest in the hope
27 ܡܛܠ ܕܠܐ ܫܒܩ ܐܢܬ ܠܢܦܫܝ ܒܫܝܘܠ ܘܠܐ ܝܗܒ ܐܢܬ ܠܚܤܝܟ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܚܒܠܐ
that you will not abandon my soul in the grave, nor will you allow your innocent one to see decay 
28 ܓܠܝܬ ܠܝ ܐܘܪܚܐ ܕܚܝܐ ܬܡܠܝܢܝ ܒܤܝܡܘܬܐ ܥܡ ܦܪܨܘܦܟ
you have revealed to me the way of life, you will fill me with joy thru your presence
29 ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܡܦܤ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܠܘܬܟܘܢ ܥܠ ܪܝܫ ܐܒܗܬܐ ܕܘܝܕ ܕܡܝܬ ܘܐܦ ܐܬܩܒܪ ܘܒܝܬ ܩܒܘܪܗ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܠܘܬܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܢܐ
Men, Brothers, allow me to speak plainly to you of the patriarch David, who is dead, and also buried, and his grave is with us to this day
30 ܢܒܝܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܘܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܕܡܘܡܬܐ ܝܡܐ ܠܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܡܢ ܦܐܪܐ ܕܟܪܤܟ ܐܘܬܒ ܥܠ ܟܘܪܤܝܟ
For he was a prophet, and he knew, that God had sworn him an oath: Of your descendants, I will confirm [a king] on your throne
31 ܘܩܕܡ ܚܙܐ ܘܡܠܠ ܥܠ ܩܝܡܬܗ ܕܡܫܝܚܐ ܕܠܐ ܐܫܬܒܩ ܒܫܝܘܠ ܐܦܠܐ ܦܓܪܗ ܚܙܐ ܚܒܠܐ
And he foresaw, and spoke about the resurrection of the Messiah, that he was not left in the grave, nor did his body see decay
32 ܠܗܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܩܝܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܚܢܢ ܟܠܢ ܤܗܕܘܗܝ
This Jesus, God raised, and we all are his witnesses
33 ܘܗܘܝܘ ܕܒܝܡܝܢܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܐܬܬܪܝܡ ܘܢܤܒ ܡܢ ܐܒܐ ܫܘܘܕܝܐ ܕܥܠ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܐܫܕ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܗܐ ܚܙܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܫܡܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
And this is he, who at the right hand of God is exalted, and has received from the Father the promise about the Holy Spirit, and has poured out this gift which, behold, you see and hear
34 ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܘܝܕ ܤܠܩ ܠܫܡܝܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܗܘ ܐܡܪ ܕܐܡܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܠܡܪܝ ܬܒ ܠܟ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܝ
For David has not went up into heaven, because he himself said: The Lord said to my Lord, sit yourself at my right hand,
35 ܥܕܡܐ ܕܐܤܝܡ ܒܥܠܕܒܒܝܟ ܟܘܒܫܐ ܠܪܓܠܝܟ
until I place your enemies as a footstool for your feet
36 ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܗܟܝܠ ܢܕܥ ܟܠܗ ܒܝܬ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܡܫܝܚܐ ܥܒܕܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܗܢܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܙܩܦܬܘܢ
Truly, therefore, let all the house of Israel know, that God has made this Jesus that Lord and Messiah, whom you crucified
37 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܬܓܢܚܘ ܒܠܒܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܠܫܪܟܐ ܕܫܠܝܚܐ ܡܢܐ ܢܥܒܕ ܐܚܝܢ
? And when they heard these things, they were touched in their heart; and they said to Simon and to the rest of the Apostles: Brothers, what should we do
38 ܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܬܘܒܘ ܘܥܡܕܘ ܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܫܘܒܩܢ ܚܛܗܐ ܕܬܩܒܠܘܢ ܡܘܗܒܬܐ ܕܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ
Simon said to them: Repent, and be baptized every one of you, in the name of the Lord Jesus, for the forgiveness of sins, so that you may receive the gift of the Holy Spirit 
39 ܠܟܘܢ ܓܝܪ ܗܘܐ ܫܘܘܕܝܐ ܘܠܒܢܝܟܘܢ ܘܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܪܚܝܩܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܘ ܐܠܗܐ ܢܩܪܐ ܐܢܘܢ
For the promise was to you, and to your children, and to all those far away whom God will call
40 ܘܒܡܠܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ ܡܤܗܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܚܝܘ ܡܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܡܥܩܡܬܐ
And with many other words he would give witness to them, and urge them, saying: Save yourselves from this wrongly self-willed generation
41 ܘܐܢܫܝܢ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܥܬܝܕܐܝܬ ܩܒܠܘ ܡܠܬܗ ܘܗܝܡܢܘ ܘܥܡܕܘ ܘܐܬܬܘܤܦܘ ܒܗܘ ܝܘܡܐ ܐܝܟ ܬܠܬܐ ܐܠܦܝܢ ܢܦܫܢ
And some of them readily received his word, and believed, and were baptized And there were added on that day, about three thousand souls
42 ܘܐܡܝܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܕܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܡܫܬܘܬܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܨܠܘܬܐ ܘܒܩܨܝܐ ܕܐܘܟܪܤܛܝܐ
And they remained faithful to the teaching of the Apostles, and were united together in prayer, and in the breaking of the Eucharist
43 ܘܗܘܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܠܟܠ ܢܦܫ ܘܐܬܘܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ ܘܓܒܪܘܬܐ ܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܝ ܒܝܕ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ
And the many miracles that happened and signs worked by the hands of the Apostles made a deep impression in Jerusalem 
44 ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܗܘܘ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܗܘܘ ܘܟܠܡܕܡ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܓܘܐ ܗܘܐ
And all those who believed, were as one, and everything they owned was held in common
45 ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܩܢܝܢܐ ܡܙܒܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܘܡܦܠܓܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܐܝܟ ܡܕܡ ܕܤܢܝܩ ܗܘܐ
And those who had a possession would sell it, and shared with everyone according to whatever was in need
46ܘܟܠܝܘܡ ܐܡܝܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܒܚܕܐ ܢܦܫ ܘܒܒܝܬܐ ܩܨܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܦܪܝܤܬܐ ܘܡܩܒܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܤܝܒܪܬܐ ܟܕ ܪܘܙܝܢ ܘܒܒܪܝܪܘܬܐ ܕܠܒܗܘܢ
And they went every day as a body to the temple, and at home, they were breaking the bread and while receiving food were rejoicing, and so in the simplicity of their hearts
47 ܡܫܒܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܟܕ ܝܗܝܒܝܢ ܒܪܚܡܐ ܩܕܡ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܘܡܪܢ ܡܘܤܦ ܗܘܐ ܟܠܝܘܡ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܚܐܝܢ ܒܥܕܬܐ
And they praised God, and were looked up to by everyone And our Lord would add daily to those who lived among the congregation

Chapter 3

1 ܘܗܘܐ ܕܟܕ ܤܠܩܝܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܒܥܕܢܐ ܕܨܠܘܬܐ ܕܬܫܥ ܫܥܝܢ
, And it happened, when Simon Kephas and John were going up to the temple together for the time of prayer, at the ninth hour
2 ܘܗܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܚܓܝܪܐ ܕܡܢ ܟܪܤ ܐܡܗ ܫܩܝܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܥܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܝܬܝܢ ܘܤܝܡܝܢ ܠܗ ܒܬܪܥܐ ܕܗܝܟܠܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܫܐܠ ܙܕܩܬܐ ܡܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܥܐܠܝܢ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ
and behold, a certain man crippled from birth was being carried by men, those men being used to bringing and setting him at the gate of the temple that was called "the Beautiful", that he might beg for alms of those going into the temple
3 ܗܢܐ ܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܕܥܐܠܝܢ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܒܥܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܕܢܬܠܘܢ ܠܗ ܙܕܩܬܐ
This man, when he saw Simon and John going into the temple, begged from them to give him alms
4 ܘܚܪܘ ܒܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗ ܚܘܪ ܒܢ
And Simon and John looked at him, and said to him: Look at us
5 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܚܪ ܒܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܤܒܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܡܤܒ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܡܕܡ
And he looked at them, expecting to get something from them
6 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܕܗܒܐ ܘܤܐܡܐ ܠܝܬ ܠܝ ܐܠܐ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܝܬ ܠܝ ܝܗܒ ܐܢܐ ܠܟ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܩܘܡ ܗܠܟ
Simon said to him: I have not gold nor silver, but I will give you what I have - in the name of our Lord Jesus Messiah, the Nazarene, get up and walk
7 ܘܐܚܕܗ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܕܝܡܝܢܐ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܫܪ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܘܥܩܒܘܗܝ
And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up, and instantly his feet and his heels were strengthened 
8 ܘܫܘܪ ܩܡ ܘܗܠܟ ܘܥܠ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܟܕ ܡܗܠܟ ܘܡܫܘܪ ܘܡܫܒܚ ܠܐܠܗܐ
And he jumped up, and stood, and walked, and he went in with them into the temple, while walking, and jumping, and praising God
9 ܘܚܙܐܘܗܝ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܟܕ ܡܗܠܟ ܘܡܫܒܚ ܠܐܠܗܐ
And all the people saw him as he was walking and praising God
10ܘܐܫܬܘܕܥܘ ܕܗܘܝܘ ܗܘ ܚܕܘܪܐ ܕܝܬܒ ܗܘܐ ܟܠܝܘܡ ܘܫܐܠ ܙܕܩܬܐ ܥܠ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܘܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܬܡܗܐ ܘܕܘܡܪܐ ܥܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܗܘܐ
And they recognized that he was that beggar who sat all day and ask for alms at the gate called "the Beautiful", and they were filled with astonishment and surprise at what had happened
11 ܘܟܕ ܐܚܝܕ ܗܘܐ ܠܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܠܝܘܚܢܢ ܪܗܛ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܟܕ ܬܗܝܪ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܠܐܤܛܘܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܕܫܠܝܡܘܢ
And as he was holding on to Simon and John, all the people marveling ran to them at the portico called Solomon's 
12 ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܥܢܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܒܢܝ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܡܢܐ ܡܬܕܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܗܢܐ ܐܘ ܒܢ ܡܢܐ ܚܝܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܗܘ ܕܒܚܝܠܐ ܕܝܠܢ ܐܘ ܒܫܘܠܛܢܢ ܥܒܕܢ ܗܕܐ ܕܢܗܠܟ ܗܢܐ
And so when Simon saw, he answered and said to them: Men, sons of Israel, why are you surprise by this ? or why do you stare at us as if we had made this man walk by our own power or authority
13 ܐܠܗܗ ܗܘ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܘܕܐܝܤܚܩ ܘܕܝܥܩܘܒ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܒܗܬܢ ܫܒܚ ܠܒܪܗ ܝܫܘܥ ܗܘ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܫܠܡܬܘܢ ܘܟܦܪܬܘܢ ܒܗ ܩܕܡ ܐܦܘܗܝ ܕܦܝܠܛܘܤ ܟܕ ܗܘ ܙܕܩ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܫܪܝܘܗܝ
The God of Abraham and of Isaac and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his Son Jesus, He whom you handed over, and disowned in the presence of Pilate, after he saw it fit to set him free
14 ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܩܕܝܫܐ ܘܙܕܝܩܐ ܟܦܪܬܘܢ ܘܫܐܠܬܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܩܛܘܠܐ ܕܢܬܝܗܒ ܠܟܘܢ
But you disowned the Holy and just One, and asked that a murderer be given to you
15 ܘܠܗܘ ܪܫܐ ܕܚܝܐ ܩܛܠܬܘܢ ܕܠܗ ܐܩܝܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܚܢܢ ܟܠܢ ܤܗܕܘܗܝ
And that Prince of Life you killed, whom God raised from the dead, and all of us are his witnesses 
16 ܘܒܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܘܝܕܥܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܗܘ ܐܫܪ ܘܐܤܝ ܘܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܕܒܗ ܝܗܒܬ ܠܗ ܗܕܐ ܚܠܝܡܘܬܐ ܩܕܡ ܟܠܟܘܢ
And, in the faith of His name, by this man whom you see and know, He has strengthened and healed and the faith that is in him has given the man this health you all see
17 ܒܪܡ ܗܫܐ ܐܚܝ ܝܕܥ ܐܢܐ ܕܒܛܘܥܝܝ ܥܒܕܬܘܢ ܗܕܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܥܒܕܘ ܪܫܝܟܘܢ
, But now I know, my brothers, that you did this through ignorance, as did your leaders as well
18 ܘܐܠܗܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܕܡ ܕܩܕܡ ܐܟܪܙ ܒܦܘܡ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܢܚܫ ܡܫܝܚܗ ܡܠܝ ܗܟܢܐ
and God, according as he had foretold by the mouths of all the prophets that the Messiah would suffer, has in this way fulfilled it
19 ܬܘܒܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܘܐܬܦܢܘ ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܢܬܥܛܘܢ ܚܛܗܝܟܘܢ ܘܢܐܬܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܙܒܢܐ ܕܢܝܚܬܐ ܡܢ ܩܕܡ ܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ
Repent, therefore, and be converted, so that your sins may be wiped out before the times of rest in the presence of the Lord come to you
20 ܘܢܫܕܪ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܐܝܢܐ ܕܡܛܝܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
And He may send Him to you, who was made ready for you, Jesus the Messiah,
21 ܕܠܗ ܘܠܐ ܠܫܡܝܐ ܕܢܩܒܠܘܢ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܡܘܠܝܐ ܕܙܒܢܐ ܕܟܠܗܝܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܠܠ ܐܠܗܐ ܒܦܘܡܐ ܕܢܒܝܘܗܝ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܕܡܢ ܥܠܡ
whom the heavens must keep until the completion of the times of those things, which God has spoken thru the mouths of His Holy Prophets of old
22 ܡܘܫܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܡܪ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܢܩܝܡ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܪܝܐ ܡܢ ܐܚܝܟܘܢ ܐܟܘܬܝ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘ ܒܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܢܡܠܠ ܥܡܟܘܢ
For Moses said: The Lord will raise up to you a prophet like me, from among your brothers, hear him in all that he will say to you
23 ܘܬܗܘܐ ܟܠ ܢܦܫܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܠܐ ܬܫܡܥ ܠܢܒܝܐ ܗܘ ܬܐܒܕ ܢܦܫܐ ܗܝ ܡܢ ܥܡܗ
And it will be, that every soul who will not hear to that prophet, that soul will be lost from his people 
24 ܘܢܒܝܐ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܫܡܘܐܝܠ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܢ ܒܬܪܗ ܗܘܘ ܡܠܠܘ ܘܐܟܪܙܘ ܥܠ ܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ
And all the prophets that have been, from Samuel and those after him, have spoken and proclaimed about these days
25 ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܢܝܗܘܢ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܘܕܕܝܬܩܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܤܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܐܒܗܬܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܠܐܒܪܗܡ ܕܒܙܪܥܟ ܢܬܒܪܟܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ
you are the children of the prophets, and that covenant which God made with our fathers, when he said to Abraham, that from in your line will all the tribes of earth be blessed
26 ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܩܕܝܡ ܐܩܝܡ ܘܫܕܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܒܪܗ ܟܕ ܡܒܪܟ ܠܟܘܢ ܐܢ ܬܬܦܢܘܢ ܘܬܬܘܒܘܢ ܡܢ ܒܝܫܬܟܘܢ
he has first appointed to you, and God has sent his Son to bless you, if you will be converted, and repent your wickedness

Chapter 4

1 ܘܟܕ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܥܡܐ ܩܡܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܙܕܘܩܝܐ ܘܐܪܟܘܢܐ ܕܗܝܟܠܐ
, And while they were speaking these words to the people, the priests and Sadducees and leaders of the temple arose against them
2 ܟܕ ܡܬܚܡܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܡܠܦܝܢ ܠܥܡܐ ܘܡܟܪܙܝܢ ܒܡܫܝܚܐ ܥܠ ܩܝܡܬܐ ܕܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ
being upset with them, that they taught the people, and preached a resurrection from the dead by the Messiah
3 ܘܐܪܡܝܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܝܐ ܘܢܛܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܡܛܠ ܕܩܪܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܪܡܫܐ
And they arrested them, and kept them under watch until the next day, because evening was drawing near
4 ܘܤܓܝܐܐ ܕܫܡܥܘ ܗܘܘ ܡܠܬܐ ܗܝܡܢܘ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܡܢܝܢܐ ܐܝܟ ܚܡܫܐ ܐܠܦܝܢ ܓܒܪܝܢ
And many who had heard the word, believed, and they were, in number, about five thousand men
5 ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܐܪܟܘܢܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܤܦܪܐ
, And the next day, the leaders and the Elders and the Scribes gathered
6 ܘܐܦ ܚܢܢ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܝܦܐ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܠܟܤܢܕܪܘܤ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܫܪܒܬܐ ܕܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ
and also Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and those who were related to the high priests
7 ܘܟܕ ܐܩܝܡܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܡܨܥܬܐ ܡܫܐܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܒܐܝܢܐ ܚܝܠ ܐܘ ܒܐܝܢܐ ܫܡ ܥܒܕܬܘܢ ܗܕܐ
? And after they had set them in their midst, they were questioning them: By what power or what name, have you done this
8 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܐܬܡܠܝ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܪܟܘܢܘܗܝ ܕܥܡܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܫܡܥܘ
! Then Simon Kephas was filled with the Holy Spirit, and said to them: You leaders of the people, and Elders of the house of Israel, listen
9 ܐܢ ܚܢܢ ܝܘܡܢܐ ܡܬܕܝܢܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܥܠ ܫܦܝܪܬܐ ܕܗܘܬ ܠܒܪܢܫܐ ܟܪܝܗܐ ܕܒܡܢܐ ܗܢܐ ܐܬܐܤܝ
, If we are judged by you today, about the act of kindness done to the cripple man, and by what means he was healed
10ܗܕܐ ܬܬܝܕܥ ܠܟܘܢ ܘܠܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܕܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܕܒܫܡܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܙܩܦܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܗܘ ܕܐܩܝܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܢ ܒܝܬ ܡܝܬܐ ܒܗ ܒܗܘ ܗܐ ܩܐܡ ܗܢܐ ܩܕܡܝܟܘܢ ܟܕ ܚܠܝܡ
be it known to you, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Messiah the Nazarene, whom you crucified, and whom God has raised from the dead, now, by the same, this man stand here before you healed 
11 ܗܢܘ ܟܐܦܐ ܕܐܤܠܝܬܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܢܝܐ ܘܗܘ ܗܘܐ ܠܪܝܫ ܩܪܢܐ
This is the stone, which you builders rejected, and has become the cornerstone
12 ܘܠܝܬ ܒܐܢܫ ܐܚܪܝܢ ܦܘܪܩܢܐ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܝܬ ܫܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܬܚܝܬ ܫܡܝܐ ܕܐܬܝܗܒ ܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܕܒܗ ܘܠܐ ܠܡܚܐ
And there is not salvation by any other man, for there is not under heaven another name given to men, by which to have Life
13ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܡܠܬܗ ܕܫܡܥܘܢ ܘܕܝܘܚܢܢ ܕܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܐܡܪܘܗ ܐܤܬܟܠܘ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܤܦܪܐ ܘܗܕܝܘܛܐ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܬܗܪܘ ܒܗܘܢ ܘܐܫܬܘܕܥܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܥܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܬܗܦܟܝܢ ܗܘܘ
And when they heard the words which Simon and John spoke so confidently, whom they considered illiterates, and they were surprised by them, and recognized them as associates of Jesus
14 ܘܚܙܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܩܐܡ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗܘܢ ܚܓܝܪܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܐܤܝ ܘܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܕܡ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܠܘܩܒܠܗܘܢ
And they saw the crippled man who had been healed standing near them, and they were unable to say anything against them
15 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܦܩܕܘ ܕܢܦܩܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܡܢ ܟܢܫܗܘܢ ܘܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܚܕ ܠܚܕ
: Then they ordered to have them removed from their council, and said one to another
16 ܡܢܐ ܢܥܒܕ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܗܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܬܐ ܓܠܝܬܐ ܕܗܘܬ ܒܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ ܠܟܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܘܪܝܗ ܕܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܐܬܝܕܥܬ ܘܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢܢ ܕܢܟܦܘܪ
What should we do to these men? For now that a visible miracle has been performed by them that's known to all that live in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it
17 ܐܠܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܬܝܪܐܝܬ ܢܦܘܩ ܒܥܡܐ ܛܒܐ ܗܢܐ ܢܬܠܚܡ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܬܘܒ ܠܐ ܢܡܠܠܘܢ ܒܫܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܠܐܢܫ ܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ
But so the news of it does not spread among the people, let us threaten them from speaking any more to any man in this name 
18 ܘܩܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܦܩܕܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܠܓܡܪ ܠܐ ܢܡܠܠܘܢ ܘܠܐ ܢܠܦܘܢ ܒܫܡ ܝܫܘܥ
And they called them in, and ordered them to never speak nor teach at all in the name of Jesus
19 ܥܢܘ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܟܐܦܐ ܘܝܘܚܢܢ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܢ ܟܐܢܐ ܩܕܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܠܟܘܢ ܢܫܡܥ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܘܢܘ
Simon Kephas and John answered, and said to them: You must judge whether it is right to God, that we listen to you more than to God
20 ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܕܡܐ ܕܚܙܝܢ ܘܫܡܥܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܡܠܠܝܘܗܝ
For we are unable to refrain from speaking about what we have seen and heard
21 ܘܐܬܠܚܡܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܘܫܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐ ܓܝܪ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܠܬܐ ܕܢܤܝܡܘܢ ܒܪܫܗܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܥܡܐ ܟܠܢܫ ܓܝܪ ܡܫܒܚ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܥܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܗܘܐ
And they warned them, and freed them For they found no grounds to charge them with because of the people, for everyone praised God for what had happened;
22 ܝܬܝܪ ܓܝܪ ܡܢ ܒܪ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܗܘ ܕܗܘܬ ܒܗ ܗܕܐ ܐܬܐ ܕܐܤܝܘܬܐ
for the man whom this miracle of healing had been performed on was more than forty years old
23 ܘܟܕ ܐܫܬܪܝܘ ܐܬܘ ܠܘܬ ܐܚܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܫܬܥܝܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܐܡܪܘ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܩܫܝܫܐ
And when they were freed, they went back to their brothers, and told them everything the priests and Elders had said
24 ܘܗܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܐܟܚܕ ܐܪܝܡܘ ܩܠܗܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܥܒܕܬ ܫܡܝܐ ܘܐܪܥܐ ܘܝܡܡܐ ܘܟܠ ܕܐܝܬ ܒܗܘܢ
And those, when they heard it, altogether lifted up their voice to God and said: Lord, you are God, He who has made heaven, and earth, and the seas, and every thing in them
25 ܘܐܢܬ ܗܘ ܕܡܠܠܬ ܒܝܕ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܒܦܘܡ ܕܘܝܕ ܥܒܕܟ ܠܡܢܐ ܪܓܫܘ ܥܡܡܐ ܘܐܡܘܬܐ ܪܢܝ ܤܪܝܩܘܬܐ
? And You are He who spoke thru the Holy Spirit by the mouth of David your servant: Why do the nations rage, and the people plot in vain
26 ܩܡܘ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܐܪܥܐ ܘܫܠܝܛܢܐ ܘܐܬܡܠܟܘ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܥܠ ܡܪܝܐ ܘܥܠ ܡܫܝܚܗ
The kings of the earth and the rulers have risen up, and aligned together against the Lord, and against his anointed
27 ܐܬܟܢܫܘ ܓܝܪ ܫܪܝܪܐܝܬ ܒܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܥܠ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܒܪܟ ܝܫܘܥ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܢܬ ܡܫܚܬ ܗܪܘܕܤ ܘܦܝܠܛܘܤ ܥܡ ܥܡܡܐ ܘܟܢܫܐ ܕܐܝܤܪܝܠ
For, truly, against your holy Son Jesus whom you have anointed, Herod and Pilate, with the pagan nations and the peoples of Israel, have been aligned together in this city
28 ܠܡܥܒܕ ܟܠ ܡܐ ܕܐܝܕܟ ܘܨܒܝܢܟ ܩܕܡ ܪܫܡ ܕܢܗܘܐ
to do whatever your hand and your will predetermined to be done
29 ܘܐܦ ܗܫܐ ܡܪܝܐ ܚܘܪ ܘܚܙܝ ܠܠܘܚܡܝܗܘܢ ܘܗܒ ܠܥܒܕܝܟ ܕܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܡܟܪܙܝܢ ܡܠܬܟ
And also now, Lord, behold and see their threats, and grant to your servants, that they may confidently preach your word
30 ܟܕ ܐܝܕܟ ܡܘܫܛ ܐܢܬ ܠܐܤܘܬܐ ܘܠܓܒܪܘܬܐ ܘܠܐܬܘܬܐ ܕܢܗܘܝܢ ܒܫܡܗ ܕܒܪܟ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܝܫܘܥ
while you extend your hand for healing and miracles and wonders, to be done in the name of your Son, the Holy One, Jesus
31 ܘܟܕ ܒܥܘ ܘܐܬܟܫܦܘ ܐܬܬܙܝܥ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܒܗ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܝܢ ܒܓܠܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And when they had prayed and made supplications, the place in which they were gathered was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and spoke the word of God boldly
32 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܢ ܠܟܢܫܐ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܝܡܢܘ ܗܘܘ ܚܕܐ ܢܦܫ ܘܚܕ ܪܥܝܢ ܘܠܐ ܐܢܫ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܢܟܤܐ ܕܩܢܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܕܝܠܗ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܟܠ ܡܕܡ ܕܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܓܘܐ ܗܘܐ
And the group of the men that believed were united with one heart and mind, and not one of them claimed the property he possessed as his own, but whatever was theirs was the community's
33 ܘܒܚܝܠܐ ܪܒܐ ܡܤܗܕܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܗܢܘܢ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܥܠ ܩܝܡܬܗ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ ܘܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܐܝܬ ܗܘܬ ܥܡ ܟܠܗܘܢ
And the Apostles testified with great power to the resurrection of Jesus Messiah, and great grace was with them all
34 ܘܐܢܫ ܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܒܗܘܢ ܕܨܪܝܟ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܓܝܪ ܕܩܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܩܘܪܝܐ ܘܒܬܐ ܡܙܒܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܘܡܝܬܝܢ ܕܡܝܐ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܡܙܕܒܢ
And no one among them was lacking, for those who possessed lands or houses would sell them, and brought the proceeds of whatever was sold
35 ܘܤܝܡܝܢ ܠܘܬ ܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܡܬܝܗܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܢܫ ܐܢܫ ܐܝܟ ܡܕܡ ܕܤܢܝܩ ܗܘܐ
and present it to the Apostles, and so distributed to every one, as to who was in need
36 ܝܘܤܦ ܕܝܢ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܟܢܝ ܒܪܢܒܐ ܡܢ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܕܡܬܬܪܓܡ ܒܪܐ ܕܒܘܝܐܐ ܠܘܝܐ ܡܢ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܩܘܦܪܤ
, And Joseph, who by the Apostles was surnamed BarNabas, - which means Son of Encouragement, - a Levite of the region of Cyprus
37 ܐܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܘܙܒܢܗ ܘܐܝܬܝ ܕܡܝܗ ܘܤܡ ܩܕܡ ܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܫܠܝܚܐ
had land, and he sold it, and brought the proceeds from it, and presented it to the Apostles

Chapter 5

1 ܘܓܒܪܐ ܚܕ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܥܡ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܫܦܝܪܐ ܙܒܢ ܗܘܐ ܩܪܝܬܗ
, And a certain man whose name was Ananias, with his wife whose name was Sapphira, sold his land
2 ܘܫܩܠ ܡܢ ܛܝܡܝܗ ܘܛܫܝ ܟܕ ܪܓܝܫܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܗ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܘܐܝܬܝ ܡܢܗ ܡܢ ܟܤܦܐ ܘܤܡ ܩܕܡ ܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܫܠܝܚܐ
and took away part of the proceeds and hid it, while his wife knew of it, and he brought part of the money, and presented it to the Apostles 
3 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܡܢܘ ܕܗܟܢܐ ܡܠܐ ܤܛܢܐ ܠܒܟ ܕܬܕܓܠ ܒܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܬܛܫܐ ܡܢ ܟܤܦܐ ܕܕܡܝܗ ܕܩܪܝܬܐ
And Simon said to him: Ananias, why has Satan so filled your heart, so you should lie against the Holy Spirit, and hide the money of the proceeds from the land ?
4 ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܕܝܠܟ ܗܘܬ ܥܕܠܐ ܬܙܕܒܢ ܘܡܢ ܕܐܙܕܒܢܬ ܬܘܒ ܐܢܬ ܫܠܝܛ ܗܘܝܬ ܥܠ ܕܡܝܗ ܠܡܢܐ ܤܡܬ ܒܠܒܟ ܕܬܥܒܕ ܨܒܘܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܠܐ ܕܓܠܬ ܒܒܢܝ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܠܐ ܒܐܠܗܐ
Was it not your own before it was sold ? And when sold, again you had control over the proceeds of it Why have you set your heart to do this scheme? You have not lied before men, but before God
5 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܚܢܢܝܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܢܦܠ ܘܡܝܬ ܘܗܘܬ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܒܟܠܗܘܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܫܡܥܘ
And when Ananias heard these words, he fell down, and died And a profound impression was made on all those that heard about it
6 ܘܩܡܘ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܠܝܡܝܢ ܒܗܘܢ ܘܟܢܫܘܗܝ ܘܐܦܩܘ ܩܒܪܘܗܝ
And those young among them got up, and wrapped him up, and took him out and buried him
7 ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܕܗܘܝ ܬܠܬ ܫܥܝܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܬܗ ܥܠܬ ܟܕ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܐ ܗܘܬ ܡܢܐ ܗܘܐ
And after three hours had passed, his wife also came in, without knowing what had happened
8 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܡܪ ܠܝ ܐܢ ܒܗܠܝܢ ܕܡܝܐ ܙܒܢܬܘܢ ܩܪܝܬܐ ܗܝ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪܬ ܐܝܢ ܒܗܠܝܢ ܕܡܝܐ
Simon said to her: Tell me, if you sold the land for these price? And she said: Yes, for this price
9 ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܐܫܬܘܝܬܘܢ ܠܡܢܤܝܘ ܪܘܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܗܐ ܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܕܩܒܘܪܘܗܝ ܕܒܥܠܟܝ ܒܬܪܥܐ ܘܗܢܘܢ ܢܦܩܘܢܟܝ
Simon said to her: Since you chose to test the Spirit of the Lord, now, the feet of those who buried your husband are at the door, and they will take you out
10 ܘܒܗ ܒܫܥܬܐ ܢܦܠܬ ܩܕܡ ܪܓܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܡܝܬܬ ܘܥܠܘ ܥܠܝܡܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܐܫܟܚܘܗ ܟܕ ܡܝܬܐ ܘܩܦܤܘ ܐܘܒܠܘ ܩܒܪܘܗ ܥܠ ܓܢܒ ܒܥܠܗ
And instantly she fell down at their feet, and died And those young men came in, and found her dead, and they wrapped her up to take away, and buried her by the side of her husband
11 ܘܗܘܬ ܕܚܠܬܐ ܪܒܬܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܥܕܬܐ ܘܒܟܠܗܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܫܡܥܘ
And a profound impression was made on all the church*, and on all of those that heard of it
12 ܘܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܝ ܒܝܕ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܓܒܪܘܬܐ ܤܓܝܐܬܐ ܒܥܡܐ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܟܢܝܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܟܚܕܐ ܒܐܤܛܘܐ ܕܫܠܝܡܘܢ
And there were many signs and wonders performed by the Apostles among the people And they all in common gathered at the Portico of Solomon
13 ܘܡܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܡܡܪܚ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܬܩܪܒ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܐܠܐ ܡܘܪܒ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܡܐ
And no one else dared to touch them, instead, the people extolled them
14 ܘܝܬܝܪ ܡܬܬܘܤܦܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܡܪܝܐ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܘܕܢܫܐ
And more increased to those who believed the Lord, numbers of both men and of women
15 ܐܝܟܢܐ ܕܒܫܘܩܐ ܡܦܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܟܪܝܗܐ ܟܕ ܪܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܥܪܤܬܐ ܕܐܡܬܝ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܐܬܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܐܦܢ ܛܠܢܝܬܗ ܬܓܢ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ
So that they took the ill out into the streets laid on beds, so when if Simon were to pass, at least his shadow might fall on them
16 ܐܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܝܢ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܠܘܬܗܘܢ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܐܚܪܢܝܬܐ ܕܚܕܪܝ ܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܟܕ ܡܝܬܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܪܝܗܐ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܪܘܚܐ ܛܢܦܬܐ ܘܡܬܚܠܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܗܘܢ
And many came to them from other cities around Jerusalem, bringing the ill and those who had unclean spirits, and all of them were healed
17 ܘܐܬܡܠܝ ܗܘܐ ܚܤܡܐ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܕܥܡܗ ܕܐܝܬܝܗܘܢ ܗܘܘ ܡܢ ܝܘܠܦܢܐ ܕܙܕܘܩܝܐ
And envy filled the high priest, and all those with him who were of the doctrine of the Sadducees
18 ܘܐܪܡܝܘ ܐܝܕܝܐ ܥܠ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܐܚܕܘ ܐܤܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ
And they arrested the Apostles, and took and bound them in prison
19 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܒܠܠܝܐ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܦܬܚ ܬܪܥܐ ܕܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܘܐܦܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
: Then at night the angel of the Lord opened the door of the prison, and let them out, and said to them
20 ܙܠܘ ܩܘܡܘ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܡܠܠܘ ܠܥܡܐ ܟܠܗܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܕܚܝܐ
Go, stand in the temple, and speak to the people all these Words of Life
21 ܘܢܦܩܘ ܥܕܢ ܫܦܪܐ ܘܥܠܘ ܠܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܡܠܦܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܝܢ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܥܡܗ ܩܪܘ ܠܚܒܪܝܗܘܢ ܘܠܩܫܝܫܐ ܕܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܘܫܕܪܘ ܠܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܕܢܝܬܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܫܠܝܚܐ
And they went out at dawn and entered the temple, and taught And the high priest and those with him convened with their supporters and the Elders of Israel, and sent for the prison to bring out the Apostles
22 ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠܘ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܫܬܕܪܘ ܡܢܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܘܗܦܟܘ ܐܬܘ
, And when those who were sent by them went, they did not find them in the prison and they returned
23 ܐܡܪܝܢ ܐܫܟܚܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܕܐܚܝܕ ܙܗܝܪܐܝܬ ܘܐܦ ܠܢܛܘܪܐ ܕܩܝܡܝܢ ܥܠ ܬܪܥܐ ܘܦܬܚܢ ܘܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܐܫܟܚܢ ܬܡܢ
and said: We found the prison securely locked, and also the guards who stood at the door, and we opened it, but found no one there
24 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܪܒܝ ܟܗܢܐ ܘܐܪܟܘܢܐ ܕܗܝܟܠܐ ܬܘܝܪܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܘܡܬܚܫܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܕܡܢܐ ܗܝ ܗܕܐ
And when the high priests and leaders of the temple heard these words, they were astonished at them, and thought " What is this ? "
25 ܘܐܬܐ ܐܢܫ ܐܘܕܥ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܗܢܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܚܒܫܬܘܢ ܒܝܬ ܐܤܝܪܐ ܗܐ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܡܠܦܝܢ ܠܥܡܐ
And a man came and reported to them: Those men whom you locked up in prison, behold, they are standing in the temple and teaching the people
26 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܙܠܘ ܐܪܟܘܢܐ ܥܡ ܕܚܫܐ ܕܢܝܬܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܐ ܒܩܛܝܪܐ ܕܚܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܓܝܪ ܕܠܡܐ ܢܪܓܘܡ ܐܢܘܢ ܥܡܐ
Then the leaders went with guards to bring them in without using force, for they were afraid that the people might stone them
27 ܘܟܕ ܐܝܬܝܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܐܩܝܡܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܩܕܡ ܟܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܘܐܩܦ ܗܘܐ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܠܡܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ
: And when they had brought them in to stand before the whole council, the high priest began to say to them
28 ܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܦܩܕ ܦܩܕܢ ܗܘܝܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܐܢܫ ܠܐ ܬܠܦܘܢ ܒܫܡܐ ܗܢܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܗܐ ܡܠܝܬܘܢܗ ܠܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܡܢ ܝܘܠܦܢܟܘܢ ܘܨܒܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܕܬܝܬܘܢ ܥܠܝܢ ܕܡܗ ܕܓܒܪܐ ܗܢܐ
Did we not indeed warn you to not teach anyone in this name ? And behold, you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching, and you want to fix the guilt of this man's death on us
29 ܥܢܐ ܫܡܥܘܢ ܥܡ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܐ ܠܡܬܛܦܤܘ ܝܬܝܪ ܡܢ ܕܠܒܢܝܢܫܐ
And Simon, with the Apostles, replied and said to them: It is more worthy to be amenable towards God than to men
30 ܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܒܗܬܢ ܐܩܝܡ ܠܝܫܘܥ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܩܛܠܬܘܢ ܟܕ ܬܠܝܬܘܢܝܗܝ ܥܠ ܩܝܤܐ
The God of our fathers has raised up Jesus, He whom you killed when you hung Him on a tree
31 ܠܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܐܩܝܡ ܐܠܗܐ ܪܫܐ ܘܡܚܝܢܐ ܘܐܪܝܡܗ ܒܝܡܝܢܗ ܐܝܟ ܕܢܬܠ ܬܝܒܘܬܐ ܘܫܘܒܩܢ ܚܛܗܐ ܠܐܝܤܪܝܠ
God has established Him as a Prince and Savior; and has exalted Him at His right hand, so that He might give forgiveness for the repentance of sins to Israel 
32 ܘܚܢܢ ܤܗܕܐ ܚܢܢ ܕܡܠܐ ܗܠܝܢ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܗܘ ܕܝܗܒ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܡܗܝܡܢܝܢ ܒܗ
And we are the witnesses of these words, and also the Holy Spirit, He, whom God gives to those who believe in Him
33 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܗܘܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܡܬܓܘܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܪܘܓܙܐ ܘܡܬܚܫܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܩܛܠ ܐܢܘܢ
And when they heard these things they were infuriated with anger, and were contemplating to kill them 
34 ܘܩܡ ܗܘܐ ܚܕ ܡܢ ܦܪܝܫܐ ܕܫܡܗ ܗܘܐ ܓܡܠܝܐܝܠ ܡܠܦ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܘܡܝܩܪ ܡܢ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܘܦܩܕ ܕܢܦܩܘܢ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܫܠܝܚܐ ܠܒܪ ܥܕܢܐ ܙܥܘܪܐ
Then one of the Pharisees got up whose name was Gamaliel, a teacher of the Law, and respected by all the people, and he ordered them to take the Apostles outside for a short time
35 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܓܒܪܐ ܒܢܝ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܐܙܕܗܪܘ ܒܢܦܫܟܘܢ ܘܚܙܘ ܡܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܠܡܥܒܕ ܥܠ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ
And he said to them: Men, sons of Israel, be yourselves careful, and consider what is the best way to deal with these men
36 ܡܢ ܩܕܡ ܓܝܪ ܗܢܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܩܡ ܗܘܐ ܬܘܕܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܥܠ ܢܦܫܗ ܕܡܕܡ ܗܘ ܪܒ ܘܐܙܠܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܐܝܟ ܐܪܒܥܡܐܐ ܓ ܒܪܝܢ ܘܗܘ ܐܬܩܛܠ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܐܬܒܕܪܘ ܘܗܘܘ ܐܝܟ ܠܐ ܡܕܡ
For not long ago, Theudas rose up, and said of himself that he was someone important, and there were about four hundred men who followed him And he was killed and those who followed him were scattered and nothing became of it 
37 ܘܩܡ ܡܢ ܒܬܪܗ ܝܗܘܕܐ ܓܠܝܠܝܐ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܕܡܬܟܬܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܒܟܤܦ ܪܫܐ ܘܐܤܛܝ ܥܡܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܒܬܪܗ ܘܗܘ ܡܝܬ ܘܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܙܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܬܪܗ ܐܬܒܕܪܘ
And after him, Judas a Galilean rose up, at the time of the census tax, and he attracted many people behind him And he died, and all those who followed him were scattered
38 ܘܗܫܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܢܐ ܠܟܘܢ ܦܪܘܩܘ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܢ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܢܫܐ ܘܫܒܘܩܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܡܢ ܒܢܝܢܫܐ ܐܝܬܝܗ ܗܕܐ ܡܚܫܒܬܐ ܘܗܢܐ ܥܒܕܐ ܡܫܬܪܝܢ ܘܥܒܪܝܢ
And now I say to you: Abstain from these men, and leave them alone For if this belief and this work originates from men, they will break up and come to nothing 
39 ܐܢ ܕܝܢ ܡܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܗܘ ܠܐ ܡܛܝܐ ܒܐܝܕܝܟܘܢ ܕܬܒܛܠܘܢܝܗܝ ܕܠܡܐ ܬܫܬܟܚܘܢ ܠܟܘܢ ܕܠܘܩܒܠ ܐܠܗܐ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ
But if it is from God, it is not in your power to stop it, and you may find yourselves standing against God 
40 ܘܐܬܛܦܝܤܘ ܠܗ ܘܩܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܠܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܢܓܕܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܦܩܕܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܗܘܘܢ ܡܡܠܠܝܢ ܒܫܡܐ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܘܫܪܘ ܐܢܘܢ
And they listened to him, and they called in the Apostles, and had them scourged, and warned them not to teach in the name of Jesus, and released them
41 ܘܢܦܩܘ ܡܢ ܩܕܡܝܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܚܕܝܢ ܕܫܘܘ ܗܘܘ ܡܛܠ ܫܡܐ ܕܢܨܛܥܪܘܢ
And so they left from their presence, glad that they were worthy to suffer humiliation on account of that name 
42 ܘܠܐ ܫܠܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܟܠܝܘܡ ܠܡܠܦܘ ܒܗܝܟܠܐ ܘܒܒܝܬܐ ܘܠܡܤܒܪܘ ܥܠ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܡܫܝܚܐ
And they did not cease to teach every day in the temple and at home, and to preach about our Lord Jesus the Messiah

Chapter 6

1 ܘܒܗܘܢ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܤܓܝܘ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܪܛܢܘ ܗܘܘ ܝܘܢܝܐ ܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܥܠ ܥܒܪܝܐ ܕܡܬܒܤܝܢ ܗܘܝ ܐܪܡܠܬܗܘܢ ܒܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܟܠܝܘܡ
And in those days, when there was an increase of disciples, the Greek disciples complained against the Hebrew ones, because their widows were overlooked in the everyday distributions
2 ܘܩܪܘ ܬܪܥܤܪ ܫܠܝܚܐ ܠܟܠܗ ܟܢܫܐ ܕܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܘܐܡܪܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܐ ܫܦܝܪ ܕܢܫܒܘܩ ܡܠܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܢܫܡܫ ܦܬܘܪܐ
And the twelve Apostles called a full meeting of the disciples, and said to them: It is not right that we should neglect the word of God to serve tables 
3 ܒܨܘ ܗܟܝܠ ܐܚܝ ܘܓܒܘ ܫܒܥܐ ܓܒܪܝܢ ܡܢܟܘܢ ܕܐܝܬ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܤܗܕܘܬܐ ܘܡܠܝܢ ܪܘܚܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܘܚܟܡܬܐ ܘܢܩܝܡ ܐܢܘܢ ܥܠ ܗܕܐ ܨܒܘܬܐ
Therefore brothers, pick out from among you seven men of good reputation, men full of the Spirit of the Lord, and of wisdom, and we will hand over this issue to them:
4 ܘܚܢܢ ܢܗܘܐ ܐܡܝܢܝܢ ܒܨܠܘܬܐ ܘܒܬܫܡܫܬܐ ܕܡܠܬܐ
and we will continue in prayer, and in the service of the Word
5 ܘܫܦܪܬ ܗܕܐ ܡܠܬܐ ܩܕܡ ܟܠܗ ܥܡܐ ܘܓܒܘ ܠܐܤܛܦܢܘܤ ܓܒܪܐ ܕܡܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܘܠܦܝܠܝܦܘܤ ܘܠܦܪܟܪܘܤ ܘܠܢܝܩܢܘܪ ܘܠܛܝܡܘܢ ܘܠܦܪܡܢܐ ܘܠܢܝܩܠܐܘܤ ܓܝܘܪܐ ܐܢܛܝܘܟܝܐ
And this proposal was approved by all the people And they selected Stephen, a man who was full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas, a convert of Antioch
6 ܗܠܝܢ ܩܡܘ ܩܕܡܝܗܘܢ ܕܫܠܝܚܐ ܘܟܕ ܨܠܝܘ ܤܡܘ ܥܠܝܗܘܢ ܐܝܕܐ
These stood before the Apostles, and when they had prayed, they laid the hands on them
7 ܘܡܠܬܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܪܒܝܐ ܗܘܬ ܘܤܓܐ ܗܘܐ ܡܢܝܢܐ ܕܬܠܡܝܕܐ ܒܐܘܪܫܠܡ ܛܒ ܘܥܡܐ ܤܓܝܐܐ ܡܢ ܝܗܘܕܝܐ ܡܫܬܡܥ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ
And the word of God spread, and the number of disciples increased greatly in Jerusalem, and many people from among the Jews submitted to the faith
8 ܐܤܛܦܢܘܤ ܕܝܢ ܡܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܘܚܝܠܐ ܘܥܒܕ ܗܘܐ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܬܕܡܪܬܐ ܒܥܡܐ
And Stephen was full of grace and power, and he performed great signs and miracles among the people
9 ܘܩܡܘ ܗܘܘ ܐܢܫܐ ܡܢ ܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܕܡܬܩܪܝܐ ܕܠܝܒܪܛܝܢܘ ܘܩܘܪܝܢܝܐ ܘܐܠܟܤܢܕܪܝܐ ܘܕܡܢ ܩܝܠܝܩܝܐ ܘܡܢ ܐܤܝܐ ܘܕܪܫܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܥܡ ܐܤܛܦܢܘܤ
And there came forward some from the synagogue which is called "the Freedmen" - Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and those from Cilicia and from Asia, and they debated with Stephen
10 ܘܠܐ ܡܫܟܚܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܡܩܡ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܚܟܡܬܐ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܕܡܡܠܠܐ ܗܘܬ ܒܗ
And they were not able stand up against the wisdom and the Spirit that spoke thru him
11 ܗܝܕܝܢ ܫܕܪܘ ܠܓܒܪܐ ܘܐܠܦܘ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܢܐܡܪܘܢ ܕܚܢܢ ܫܡܥܢܝܗܝ ܕܐܡܪ ܡܠܐ ܕܓܘܕܦܐ ܥܠ ܡܘܫܐ ܘܥܠ ܐܠܗܐ
Then they sent men off, and told them to say: We have heard him speak words of blasphemy against Moses and against God
12 ܘܫܓܫܘ ܠܥܡܐ ܘܠܩܫܝܫܐ ܘܠܤܦܪܐ ܘܐܬܘ ܘܩܡܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܘܚܛܦܘ ܐܝܬܝܘܗܝ ܠܡܨܥܬ ܟܢܫܐ
And they stirred up the people, and the Elders, and the Scribes, and they came to stand up to him, and arrest him, and brought him before the Sanhedrin 
13 ܘܐܩܝܡܘ ܤܗܕܐ ܕܓܠܐ ܕܐܡܪܝܢ ܗܢܐ ܓܒܪܐ ܠܐ ܫܠܐ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ ܡܠܐ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܘܥܠ ܐܬܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܩܕܝܫܐ
And they put up false witnesses who said: This man never stops speaking words contrary to the Law, and against this Holy Place
14 ܚܢܢ ܓܝܪ ܫܡܥܢܝܗܝ ܕܐܡܪ ܕܝܫܘܥ ܗܢܐ ܢܨܪܝܐ ܗܘ ܢܫܪܝܘܗܝ ܠܐܬܪܐ ܗܢܐ ܘܢܚܠܦ ܥܝܕܐ ܕܐܫܠܡ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܘܫܐ
For we have heard him say that this Jesus the Nazarene will destroy this place, and will alter the traditions that Moses handed down to you
15 ܘܚܪܘ ܒܗ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܝܬܒܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܘܚܙܘ ܦܪܨܘܦܗ ܐܝܟ ܦܪܨܘܦܐ ܕܡܠܐܟܐ
And all those sitting in the Sanhedrin looked at him, and they saw his face as the face of an angel

Chapter 7

1 ܘܫܐܠܗ ܪܒ ܟܗܢܐ ܕܐܢ ܗܘ ܕܗܠܝܢ ܗܟܢܐ ܐܢܝܢ
? And the high priest asked him: Were these things so
2 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܐܡܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܝܢ ܘܐܒܗܬܢ ܫܡܥܘ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܐܒܘܢ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܟܕ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܒܝܬ ܢܗܪܝܢ ܥܕ ܠܐ ܢܐܬܐ ܢܥܡܪ ܒܚܪܢ
And he said: Men, brothers of us, and fathers of us, hear me out The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham, when he was between the two rivers* before he settled in Charran
3 ܘܐܡܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܕܦܘܩ ܡܢ ܐܪܥܟ ܘܡܢ ܠܘܬ ܒܢܝ ܛܘܗܡܟ ܘܬܐ ܠܐܪܥܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܐܚܘܝܟ
and he said to him: Leave your country, and your race, and go to a land which I will present to you
4 ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܢܦܩ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܡܢ ܐܪܥܐ ܕܟܠܕܝܐ ܘܐܬܐ ܥܡܪ ܒܚܪܢ ܘܡܢ ܬܡܢ ܟܕ ܡܝܬ ܐܒܘܗܝ ܫܢܝܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܐܪܥܐ ܗܕܐ ܕܒܗ ܥܡܪܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܝܘܡܢܐ
And then Abraham left the land of the Chaldeans, and settled in Charran And from there, after his father died, God moved him to this land, where you are living today
5 ܘܠܐ ܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܝܪܬܘܬܐ ܒܗ ܐܦ ܠܐ ܕܘܪܟܬܐ ܕܪܓܠܐ ܘܐܫܬܘܕܝ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܬܠܝܗ ܠܗ ܐܝܟ ܕܠܡܐܪܬܗ ܠܗ ܘܠܙܪܥܗ ܟܕ ܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܒܪܐ
And he did not give him even a step of a foot in it for his own, but he promised that he would give it to him, as an inheritance to him and to his line, while he had yet no son
6 ܘܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗ ܐܠܗܐ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܕܢܗܘܐ ܙܪܥܟ ܬܘܬܒܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܢܘܟܪܝܬܐ ܘܢܫܥܒܕܘܢܝܗܝ ܘܢܒܐܫܘܢ ܠܗ ܐܪܒܥܡܐܐ ܫܢܝܢ
And God spoke with him, and said to him: Your line will be exiles in a foreign land, where they would be slaves, and oppressed for four hundred years
7 ܘܠܥܡܐ ܕܢܦܠܚܘܢ ܥܒܕܘܬܐ ܐܕܘܢܝܘܗܝ ܐܢܐ ܐܡܪ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܡܢ ܒܬܪ ܗܠܝܢ ܢܦܩܘܢ ܘܢܦܠܚܘܢ ܠܝ ܒܐܬܪܐ ܗܢܐ
And I will judge the nation which enslaves them, God said And after this, they will leave, and worship me in this place
8 ܘܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܕܝܬܩܐ ܕܓܙܘܪܬܐ ܘܗܝܕܝܢ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܐܝܤܚܩ ܘܓܙܪܗ ܒܝܘܡܐ ܬܡܝܢܝܐ ܘܐܝܤܚܩ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܝܥܩܘܒ ܐܘܠܕ ܠܬܪܥܤܪ ܐܒܗܬܢ
And he gave them the covenant of circumcision And then he fathered Isaac, and circumcised him on the eighth day And Isaac fathered Jacob, and Jacob fathered our twelve Patriarchs
9 ܘܗܢܘܢ ܐܒܗܬܢ ܛܢܘ ܒܝܘܤܦ ܘܙܒܢܘܗܝ ܠܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܐܠܗܐ ܥܡܗ ܗܘܐ
, And those Patriarchs envied Joseph, and sold him into Egypt, but God was with him
10 ܘܦܪܩܗ ܗܘܐ ܡܢ ܟܠܗܘܢ ܐܘܠܨܢܘܗܝ ܘܝܗܒ ܠܗ ܛܝܒܘܬܐ ܘܚܟܡܬܐ ܩܕܡ ܦܪܥܘܢ ܡܠܟܐ ܕܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܐܩܝܡܗ ܪܫܐ ܥܠ ܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܥܠ ܒܝܬܗ ܟܠܗ
and rescued him from all his miseries and gave him favor and wisdom before Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and he made him governor over Egypt, and over all his household
11 ܘܗܘܐ ܟܦܢܐ ܘܐܘܠܨܢܐ ܪܒܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܒܐܪܥܐ ܕܟܢܥܢ ܘܠܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܤܒܥ ܠܐܒܗܬܢ
And there was famine and great suffering in all Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, and our ancestors were without food
12 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܕܐܝܬ ܥܒܘܪܐ ܒܡܨܪܝܢ ܫܕܪ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܒܗܬܢ ܠܘܩܕܡ
And when Jacob heard that there was grain for sale in Egypt, he sent our ancestors there first
13 ܘܟܕ ܐܙܠܘ ܕܬܪܬܝܢ ܙܒܢܝܢ ܐܘܕܥ ܝܘܤܦ ܢܦܫܗ ܠܐܚܘܗܝ ܘܐܬܝܕܥ ܠܦܪܥܘܢ ܛܘܗܡܗ ܕܝܘܤܦ
And when they went the second time, Joseph made himself known to his brothers, and the family of Joseph was known to Pharaoh
14 ܘܫܕܪ ܗܘܐ ܝܘܤܦ ܘܐܝܬܝܗ ܠܐܒܘܗܝ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܠܟܠܗ ܛܘܗܡܗ ܘܗܘܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܡܢܝܢܐ ܫܒܥܝܢ ܘܚܡܫ ܢܦܫܢ
And Joseph sent and brought is father Jacob, and all his family, and they numbered seventy five souls
15 ܘܢܚܬ ܝܥܩܘܒ ܠܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܡܝܬ ܬܡܢ ܗܘ ܘܐܒܗܬܢ
And Jacob went down into Egypt; and he died there, he and our ancestors
16 ܘܐܫܬܢܝ ܠܫܟܝܡ ܘܐܬܬܤܝܡ ܒܩܒܪܐ ܕܙܒܢ ܗܘܐ ܐܒܪܗܡ ܒܟܤܦܐ ܡܢ ܒܢܝ ܚܡܘܪ
And he was brought back to Sychem, and was buried in the tomb which Abraham bought with money from the sons of Emmor
17 ܘܟܕ ܡܛܝ ܗܘܐ ܙܒܢܐ ܕܡܕܡ ܕܐܫܬܘܕܝ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܘܡܬܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܠܐܒܪܗܡ ܤܓܝ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܐ ܘܬܩܦ ܒܡܨܪܝܢ
And as the time drew near to fulfill the promise which God had promised to Abraham, the people had increased and became strong in Egypt
18 ܥܕܡܐ ܕܩܡ ܡܠܟܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܥܠ ܡܨܪܝܢ ܐܝܢܐ ܕܠܐ ܝܕܥ ܗܘܐ ܠܗ ܠܝܘܤܦ
until another king rose up over Egypt, who did not know Joseph
19 ܘܐܨܛܢܥ ܥܠ ܛܘܗܡܢ ܘܐܒܐܫ ܠܐܒܗܬܢ ܘܦܩܕ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܡܫܬܕܝܢ ܝܠܘܕܝܗܘܢ ܕܠܐ ܢܚܘܢ
And he exploited our race, and ill-treated our ancestors, and ordered that their male infants be cast away, so they might not live
20 ܒܗ ܒܙܒܢܐ ܗܘ ܐܬܝܠܕ ܡܘܫܐ ܘܪܚܝܡ ܗܘܐ ܠܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܬܪܒܝ ܝܪܚܐ ܬܠܬܐ ܒܝܬ ܐܒܘܗܝ
At at that time was Moses born, and he was pleasing to God, and he was reared for three months in his father's house 
21 ܘܟܕ ܐܫܬܕܝ ܡܢ ܐܡܗ ܐܫܟܚܬܗ ܒܪܬ ܦܪܥܘܢ ܘܪܒܝܬܗ ܠܗ ܠܒܪܐ
And when he had been cast away by his mother, the daughter of Pharaoh found him, and brought him up as her own son 
22 ܘܐܬܪܕܝ ܡܘܫܐ ܒܟܠܗ ܚܟܡܬܐ ܕܡܨܪܝܐ ܘܥܬܝܕ ܗܘܐ ܒܡܠܘܗܝ ܘܐܦ ܒܥܒܕܘܗܝ
And Moses was taught all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and he was accomplished in his words, and in his deeds as well
23 ܘܟܕ ܗܘܐ ܒܪ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܤܠܩ ܗܘܐ ܥܠ ܠܒܗ ܕܢܤܥܘܪ ܠܐܚܘܗܝ ܒܢܝ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ
And when he was forty years old, it entered his heart to visit his brothers, the sons of Israel 
24 ܘܚܙܐ ܠܚܕ ܡܢ ܒܢܝ ܫܪܒܬܗ ܕܡܬܕܒܪ ܒܩܛܝܪܐ ܘܬܒܥܗ ܘܥܒܕ ܠܗ ܕܝܢܐ ܘܩܛܠܗ ܠܡܨܪܝܐ ܗܘ ܕܡܤܟܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܗ
And he saw one of the sons of his race persecuted, and he avenged him, and went to his defense, and killed the Egyptian who did him wrong
25 ܘܤܒܪ ܕܡܤܬܟܠܝܢ ܐܚܘܗܝ ܒܢܝ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܒܐܝܕܗ ܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܦܘܪܩܢܐ ܘܠܐ ܐܤܬܟܠܘ
And he thought that his brothers, the sons of Israel, would have understood, that by his hand God would liberate them, but they did not understand
26 ܘܠܝܘܡܐ ܐܚܪܢܐ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗܘܢ ܟܕ ܢܨܝܢ ܗܢܘܢ ܚܕ ܥܡ ܚܕ ܘܡܦܝܤ ܗܘܐ ܠܗܘܢ ܕܢܫܬܝܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܐܡܪ ܓܒܪܐ ܐܚܐ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܡܛܠ ܡܢܐ ܡܤܟܠܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܚܕ ܒܚܕ
And on another day he came across them as they were arguing with one another And he tried to reconcile them, saying: Men, you are brothers, why do you want to hurt each other
27 ܗܘ ܕܝܢ ܕܡܤܟܠ ܗܘܐ ܒܚܒܪܗ ܕܚܩܗ ܡܢ ܠܘܬܗ ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܢܘ ܐܩܝܡܟ ܥܠܝܢ ܪܫܐ ܘܕܝܢܐ
? But he who wronged his fellow, pushed him away, and said to him: Who appointed you our leader and judge
28 ܕܠܡܐ ܠܡܩܛܠܢܝ ܒܥܐ ܐܢܬ ܐܝܟ ܕܩܛܠܬ ܐܬܡܠܝ ܠܡܨܪܝܐ
? Do you intend to kill me, as you killed the Egyptian yesterday
29 ܘܥܪܩ ܡܘܫܐ ܒܡܠܬܐ ܗܕܐ ܘܗܘܐ ܬܘܬܒܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܕܡܕܝܢ ܘܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܬܪܝܢ ܒܢܝܢ
And Moses fled when he heard this, and he went to stay in the land of Midian And there he had two sons
30 ܘܟܕ ܡܠܝ ܠܗ ܬܡܢ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܕܛܘܪ ܤܝܢܝ ܡܠܐܟܗ ܕܡܪܝܐ ܒܢܘܪܐ ܕܝܩܕܐ ܒܤܢܝܐ
And after forty years had passed for him there, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in the wilderness of the mount of Sinai, in a fire that burned in a bush
31 ܘܟܕ ܚܙܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܐܬܕܡܪ ܒܚܙܘܐ ܘܟܕ ܐܬܩܪܒ ܕܢܚܙܐ ܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܝܐ ܒܩܠܐ
: And when Moses saw it, he was amazed at the vision, and as he came nearer to see it, the Lord, in a voice, said to him
32 ܐܢܐ ܐܢܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܐܒܗܝܟ ܐܠܗܗ ܕܐܒܪܗܡ ܘܕܐܝܤܚܩ ܘܕܝܥܩܘܒ ܘܟܕ ܪܬܝܬ ܗܘܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܠܐ ܡܡܪܚ ܗܘܐ ܕܢܚܘܪ ܒܚܙܘܐ
I am the God of your ancestors, the God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob And Moses trembled, and dared not to look at the vision
33 ܘܐܡܪ ܠܗ ܡܪܝܐ ܫܪܝ ܡܤܢܝܟ ܡܢ ܪܓܠܝܟ ܐܪܥܐ ܓܝܪ ܕܩܐܡ ܐܢܬ ܒܗ ܩܕܝܫܐ ܗܝ
And the Lord said to him: Take off your sandals from your feet, for the ground you stand on is holy 
34 ܡܚܙܐ ܚܙܝܬ ܐܘܠܨܢܗ ܕܥܡܝ ܕܒܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܬܢܚܬܗ ܫܡܥܬ ܘܢܚܬܬ ܕܐܦܪܘܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܘܗܫܐ ܬܐ ܐܫܕܪܟ ܠܡܨܪܝܢ
I have indeed seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and I have heard their agonizing, and have come down to deliver them And now, come, I will send you to Egypt
35 ܠܗܢܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܕܟܦܪܘ ܒܗ ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܕܡܢܘ ܐܩܝܡܟ ܥܠܝܢ ܪܫܐ ܘܕܝܢܐ ܠܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܪܫܐ ܘܦܪܘܩܐ ܫܕܪ ܠܗܘܢ ܒܐܝܕܝ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܬܚܙܝ ܠܗ ܒܤܢܝܐ
This Moses whom they disowned by saying, Who appointed you our leader and judge ? Him, this one, God sent to them to be leader and redeemer, by the hands of the angel that appeared to him in the bush 
36 ܗܢܘ ܕܐܦܩ ܐܢܘܢ ܟܕ ܥܒܕ ܐܬܘܬܐ ܘܬܕܡܪܬܐ ܘܓܒܪܘܬܐ ܒܐܪܥܐ ܕܡܨܪܝܢ ܘܒܝܡܐ ܕܤܘܦ ܘܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܫܢܝܢ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ
This was he that brought them out, working miracles and wonders and works of power in the land of Egypt, and at the Red Sea, and in the desert for forty years
37 ܗܢܘ ܡܘܫܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܡܪ ܠܒܢܝ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܢܩܝܡ ܠܟܘܢ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܠܗܐ ܡܢ ܐܚܝܟܘܢ ܐܟܘܬܝ ܠܗ ܬܫܡܥܘܢ
This Moses is the man who said to the sons of Israel: The Lord God will raise up a prophet for you, like me, from among your brothers - listen to him
38 ܗܢܘ ܕܗܘܐ ܒܟܢܘܫܬܐ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܥܡ ܡܠܐܟܐ ܗܘ ܕܡܠܠ ܗܘܐ ܥܡܗ ܘܥܡ ܐܒܗܬܢ ܒܛܘܪܐ ܕܤܝܢܝ ܘܗܘܝܘ ܕܩܒܠ ܡܠܐ ܚܝܬܐ ܕܠܢ ܢܬܠ
It was he, who was in the assemblage in the wilderness, with the angel that spoke with him and with our ancestors at Mount Sinai, and it was he who received the Living Words to give us
39 ܘܠܐ ܨܒܘ ܠܡܬܕܢܝܘ ܠܗ ܐܒܗܬܢ ܐܠܐ ܫܒܩܘܗܝ ܘܒܠܒܘܬܗܘܢ ܗܦܟܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܠܡܨܪܝܢ
; And our ancestors did not want to heed him, but instead left him, and returned, set in their hearts, to Egypt
40 ܟܕ ܐܡܪܝܢ ܠܐܗܪܘܢ ܥܒܕ ܠܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܕܢܐܙܠܘܢ ܩܕܡܝܢ ܡܛܠ ܕܗܢܐ ܡܘܫܐ ܕܐܦܩܢ ܡܢ ܐܪܥܐ ܕܡܨܪܝܢ ܠܐ ܝܕܥܝܢ ܚܢܢ ܡܢܐ ܗܘܝܗܝ
when they said to Aaron: Make us gods who may lead us, because we know not what has happened to this Moses who led us from the land of Egypt 
41 ܘܥܒܕܘ ܠܗܘܢ ܥܓܠܐ ܒܝܘܡܬܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܘܕܒܚܘ ܕܒܚܐ ܠܦܬܟܪܐ ܘܡܬܒܤܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܒܥܒܕ ܐܝܕܝܗܘܢ
And he made them a calf in those days, and they offered sacrifices to idols, and rejoiced in the work of their hands
42 ܘܗܦܟ ܐܠܗܐ ܘܐܫܠܡ ܐܢܘܢ ܕܢܗܘܘܢ ܦܠܚܝܢ ܠܚܝܠܘܬܐ ܕܫܡܝܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܟܬܝܒ ܒܟܬܒܐ ܕܢܒܝܐ ܠܡܐ ܐܪܒܥܝܢ ܫܢܝܢ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܢܟܤܬܐ ܐܘ ܕܒܚܬܐ ܩܪܒܬܘܢ ܠܝ ܒܢܝ ܐܝܤܪܝܠ
And God turned away, and gave them up to worship the arrays of the skies, as it is written in the book of the prophets: Did you, for forty years, in the wilderness, present to me a slain animal or a sacrifice, you sons of Israel ?
43 ܐܠܐ ܫܩܠܬܘܢ ܡܫܟܢܗ ܕܡܠܟܘܡ ܘܟܘܟܒܗ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܕܪܦܢ ܕܡܘܬܐ ܕܥܒܕܬܘܢ ܕܬܗܘܘܢ ܤܓܕܝܢ ܠܗܝܢ ܐܫܢܝܟܘܢ ܠܗܠ ܡܢ ܒܒܠ
But you carried the tent of Malchum, and the star of the god Rephon, idols which you had made, that you might worship them I will exile you beyond Babylon 
44 ܗܐ ܡܫܟܢܐ ܕܤܗܕܘܬܐ ܕܐܒܗܬܢ ܒܡܕܒܪܐ ܐܝܬܘܗܝ ܗܘܐ ܐܝܟ ܡܐ ܕܦܩܕ ܗܘ ܕܡܠܠ ܥܡ ܡܘܫܐ ܠܡܥܒܕܗ ܒܕܡܘܬܐ ܕܚܘܝܗ
Behold, our ancestors had the tent of the testimony in the wilderness, as he who spoke to Moses ordered it made in the likeness which he had showed him
45 ܘܠܗ ܠܗܢܐ ܡܫܟܢܐ ܐܦ ܡܥܠܘ ܐܥܠܘܗܝ ܐܒܗܬܢ ܥܡ ܝܫܘܥ ܠܐܪܥܐ ܕܝܗܒ ܠܗܘܢ ܐܠܗܐ ܝܘܪܬܢܐ ܡܢ ܥܡܡܐ ܗܢܘܢ ܕܫܕܐ ܡܢ ܩܕܡܝܗܘܢ ܘܐܬܝܒܠ ܥܕܡܐ ܠܝܘܡܘܗܝ ܕܕܘܝܕ
And our ancestors, with Joshua, indeed brought this same tent, into the land which God gave them as an inheritance from those nations which he cast out before them, and it was carried until the days of David
46 ܗܘ ܕܐܫܟܚ ܪܚܡܐ ܩܕܡܘܗܝ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܫܐܠ ܕܢܫܟܚ ܡܫܟܢܐ ܠܐܠܗܗ ܕܝܥܩܘܒ
He, who found mercy before God, asked that he might find a tabernacle for the God of Jacob 
47 ܫܠܝܡܘܢ ܕܝܢ ܒܢܐ ܠܗ ܒܝܬܐ
But Solomon built the house
48 ܘܡܪܝܡܐ ܠܐ ܫܪܐ ܒܥܒܕ ܐܝܕܝܐ ܐܝܟ ܕܐܡܪ ܢܒܝܐ
: And the Most High does not live in a work of hands, as the prophet said
49 ܕܫܡܝܐ ܟܘܪܤܝ ܘܐܪܥܐ ܟܘܒܫܐ ܕܬܚܝܬ ܪܓܠܝ ܐܝܢܘ ܒܝܬܐ ܕܬܒܢܘܢ ܠܝ ܐܡܪ ܡܪܝܐ ܐܘ ܐܝܢܘ ܐܬܪܐ ܕܢܝܚܬܝ
Heaven is my throne, and earth a footrest under my feet What can a house you will build for me be ? says the Lord: or, what can be the place of my rest
50 ܠܐ ܗܐ ܐܝܕܐ ܕܝܠܝ ܥܒܕܬ ܗܠܝܢ ܟܠܗܝܢ
Behold, has not my hand made all these things ?
51 ܐܘ ܩܫܝܝ ܩܕܠܐ ܘܕܠܐ ܓܙܝܪܝܢ ܒܠܒܗܘܢ ܘܒܡܫܡܥܬܗܘܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܒܟܠܙܒܢ ܠܘܩܒܠ ܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܩܝܡܝܢ ܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܝܟ ܐܒܗܝܟܘܢ ܐܦ ܐܢܬܘܢ
O [ you, so ] stubborn, and pagan in heart and in hearing, do you always set yourselves against the Holy Spirit, as were your ancestors, and so also you
52 ܠܐܝܢܐ ܓܝܪ ܡܢ ܢܒܝܐ ܕܠܐ ܪܕܦܘ ܘܩܛܠܘ ܐܒܗܝܟܘܢ ܠܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܩܕܡܘ ܒܕܩܘ ܥܠ ܡܐܬܝܬܗ ܕܙܕܝܩܐ ܗܘ ܕܐܢܬܘܢ ܐܫܠܡܬܘܢ ܘܩܛܠܬܘܢܝܗܝ
? For which of the prophets did your ancestors not persecute and kill, those, who foretold the coming of the Just One, whom you handed over and killed
53 ܘܩܒܠܬܘܢ ܢܡܘܤܐ ܒܝܕ ܦܘܩܕܢܐ ܕܡܠܐܟܐ ܘܠܐ ܢܛܪܬܘܢܝܗܝ
And you have received the Law by way of the ordination of angels, and have not kept it
54 ܘܟܕ ܫܡܥܘ ܗܘܘ ܗܠܝܢ ܐܬܡܠܝܘ ܚܡܬܐ ܒܢܦܫܗܘܢ ܘܡܚܪܩܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܫܢܝܗܘܢ ܥܠܘܗܝ
And when they heard this, they were themselves filled with anger, and they ground their teeth at him
55 ܘܗܘ ܟܕ ܡܠܐ ܗܘܐ ܗܝܡܢܘܬܐ ܘܪܘܚܐ ܕܩܘܕܫܐ ܚܪ ܒܫܡܝܐ ܘܚܙܐ ܬܫܒܘܚܬܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ ܘܠܝܫܘܥ ܟܕ ܩܐܡ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And he, while full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, looked towards heaven, and saw the resplendence of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God
56 ܘܐܡܪ ܗܐ ܚܙܐ ܐܢܐ ܫܡܝܐ ܟܕ ܦܬܝܚܝܢ ܘܠܒܪܗ ܕܐܢܫܐ ܟܕ ܩܐܡ ܡܢ ܝܡܝܢܐ ܕܐܠܗܐ
And he said: Behold, I see heaven opened, and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God
57 ܘܩܥܘ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܤܟܪܘ ܐܕܢܝܗܘܢ ܘܓܙܡܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܟܠܗܘܢ
And they shouted out with a loud voices, and covered their ears, and all rushed at him
58 ܘܐܚܕܘ ܐܦܩܘܗܝ ܠܒܪ ܡܢ ܡܕܝܢܬܐ ܘܪܓܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܘܐܝܠܝܢ ܕܐܤܗܕܘ ܥܠܘܗܝ ܤܡܘ ܢܚܬܝܗܘܢ ܠܘܬ ܪܓܠܘܗܝ ܕܥܠܝܡܐ ܚܕ ܕܡܬܩܪܐ ܫܐܘܠ
And they grabbed hold of him, and took him outside the city, and stoned him And those who testified against him, laid their clothes at the feet of a certain young man who was called Saul
59 ܘܪܓܡܝܢ ܗܘܘ ܠܗ ܠܐܤܛܦܢܘܤ ܟܕ ܡܨܠܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܢ ܝܫܘܥ ܩܒܠ ܪܘܚܝ
And they stoned Stephen, while he prayed and said: Our Lord, Jesus, receive my spirit
60 ܘܟܕ ܤܡ ܒܘܪܟܐ ܩܥܐ ܒܩܠܐ ܪܡܐ ܘܐܡܪ ܡܪܢ ܠܐ ܬܩܝܡ ܠܗܘܢ ܗܕܐ ܚܛܝܬܐ ܘܟܕ ܗܕܐ ܐܡܪ ܫܟܒ
And while he kneeled down, he shouted with loud voice, and said: Our Lord, do not hold this sin against them And after he had said this, he went to his rest
