Dawrēś k'ţāwē kţiw alay (2).

In the beginning of the books it is written about me.

Holy book of glad news of the redeemer Christ the king,
Wrote those who were inspired;
Matthew for the believers among the Jews,
And Mark did it for those in Rome, Luke wrote for the Egyptians,
And John for the Church of Ephesians.
Lord, all people read this book
And meditate on thy word, proclaiming
Thy great glory and praising thee all over the world.

O God, I was pleased to do thy will.

Holy book of glad news ...
