Psalm

Psalm 16:10-11 [Arabic]

For You will not leave my soul in Sheol,
        Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
        You will show me the path of life;
        In Your presence is fullness of joy.
       
 

Gospel

Matt 16:21-23 [Arabic]

From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day.

Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, "Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to You!"

But He turned and said to Peter, "Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men."

Pauline Epistle

Rom 1:19-21 [Arabic]

Because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

 

Catholic Epistle

1Jn 2:11-14 [Arabic]

But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

I write to you, little children,
           Because your sins are forgiven you for His name's sake.
        I write to you, fathers,
           Because you have known Him who is from the beginning.
        I write to you, young men,
           Because you have overcome the wicked one.
        I write to you, little children,
           Because you have known the Father.
        I have written to you, fathers,
           Because you have known Him who is from the beginning.
        I have written to you, young men,
           Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you,
           And you have overcome the wicked one.

 

Acts

Acts 4:19-21 [Arabic]

But Peter and John answered and said to them, "Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard." So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding no way of punishing them, because of the people, since they all glorified God for what had been done.

Psalm

Psalm 9:10-11 [Arabic]

And those who know Your name will put their trust in You;
        For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.
        Sing praises to the LORD, who dwells in Zion!
        Declare His deeds among the people.

 

Gospel

Jn 6:54-58 [Arabic]

Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the bread which came down from heaven--not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever."
