Anta sakhr wa 'ala hatha al-sakhr sabni kanisati


Explanation:
While "Butrus" (used by the other respondent) is indeed derived from the French word for rock, the Arabic biblical translation does not use that term. This is according to both the Jesuit and Presbytarian translations of the bible into Arabic.
