Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1Charge them to obey Rulers and Authorities and to submit and be prepared for every good work, 2And not to insult any person, neither to be contending, but they should be humble and show their sweetness in all things to all people.
3For we also from the first were without intelligence and without conviction. We were deceived and Servants to changing lusts and were employed in wickedness and in envy. We were despicable and hating one another. 4But when the sweetness and the loving kindness of God Our Lifegiver was revealed, 5Not by works of righteousness that we had done, but by his own love he gave us life, through the washing of the new birth and the renewing of The Spirit of Holiness, 6Whom he poured upon us richly by Yeshua The Messiah Our Lifegiver, 7That we would be made right by his grace and we would be heirs by the hope in eternal life. 8But the saying is trustworthy, and I want you also to be assuring them in these things, that they who have believed in God would be concerned to cultivate good works, for these things are good and beneficial for the children of men.
9But abstain from foolish debates, from tales of genealogies, from contentions and from the contests of The Scribes, for there is no profit in them and such things are worthless. 10Avoid a man who is a heretic after the first and second admonitions, 11And be aware that he who is such is perverse and a sinner and is self condemned.
12When I have sent to you Artemis or Tukiqaus, be diligent to come to me to Niqopolis, for I have set my mind to winter there. 13But concerning Zena the Scribe and concerning Apollo, be diligent to attend well to them, that they would lack nothing, 14And they will teach those who are ours also to cultivate good works in matters of distress, lest they should be fruitless.
15All those who are with me invoke your peace. Invoke the peace of all those who love us in the faith. Grace be with all of you. Amen.
