Psalm

Psalm 119:96 ; Psalm 119:87 [Arabic]

I have seen the consummation of all perfection,
But Your commandment is exceedingly broad.
They almost made an end of me on earth,
But I did not forsake Your precepts.
 

Gospel

Lk 8:18-21 [Arabic]

Therefore take heed how you hear. For whoever has, to him more will be given; and whoever does not have, even what he seems to have will be taken from him."

Then His mother and brothers came to Him, and could not approach Him because of the crowd. And it was told Him by some, who said, "Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, desiring to see You."

But He answered and said to them, "My mother and My brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it."

Pauline Epistle

1Cor 14:12-17 [Arabic]

Even so you, since you are zealous for spiritual gifts, let it be for the edification of the church that you seek to excel.

Therefore let him who speaks in a tongue pray that he may interpret. For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful. What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding. Otherwise, if you bless with the spirit, how will he who occupies the place of the uninformed say "Amen" at your giving of thanks, since he does not understand what you say? For you indeed give thanks well, but the other is not edified.

 

Catholic Epistle

Jude 1:22-25 [Arabic]

And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.

Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling,
        And to present you faultless
        Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
        To God our Savior,
        Who alone is wise,
        Be glory and majesty,
        Dominion and power,
        Both now and forever.
        Amen.

 

Acts

Acts 15:13-18 [Arabic]

And after they had become silent, James answered, saying, "Men and brethren, listen to me: Simon has declared how God at the first visited the Gentiles to take out of them a people for His name. And with this the words of the prophets agree, just as it is written:
        'After this I will return
        And will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down;
        I will rebuild its ruins,
        And I will set it up;
        So that the rest of mankind may seek the LORD.
       Even all the Gentiles who are called by My name,
        Says the LORD who does all these things.'

"Known to God from eternity are all His works.

Psalm

Psalm 25:1-3 [Arabic]

To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
O my God, I trust in You;
Let me not be ashamed;
Let not my enemies triumph over me.
Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed.

 

Gospel

Jn 7:37-39 [Arabic]

On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water." But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
