١ أخبار 29

وَقَالَ دَاوُدُ ٱلْمَلِكُ لِكُلِّ ٱلْمَجْمَعِ: «إِنَّ سُلَيْمَانَ ٱبْنِي ٱلَّذِي وَحْدَهُ ٱخْتَارَهُ ٱللهُ، إِنَّمَا هُوَ صَغِيرٌ وَغَضٌّ، وَٱلْعَمَلُ عَظِيمٌ لِأَنَّ ٱلْهَيْكَلَ لَيْسَ لِإِنْسَانٍ بَلْ لِلرَّبِّ ٱلْإِلَهِ. ١ 1
King David said to the whole assembly, “Solomon my son, whom alone God has chosen, is still young and inexperienced, and the task is great. For the temple is not for people but for Yahweh God.
وَأَنَا بِكُلِّ قُوَّتِي هَيَّأْتُ لِبَيْتِ إِلَهِيَ: ٱلذَّهَبَ لِمَا هُوَ مِنْ ذَهَبٍ، وَٱلْفِضَّةَ لِمَا هُوَ مِنْ فِضَّةٍ، وَٱلنُّحَاسَ لِمَا هُوَ مِنْ نُحَاسٍ، وَٱلْحَدِيدَ لِمَا هُوَ مِنْ حَدِيدٍ، وَٱلْخَشَبَ لِمَا هُوَ مِنْ خَشَبٍ، وَحِجَارَةَ ٱلْجَزَعِ، وَحِجَارَةً لِلتَّرْصِيعِ، وَحِجَارَةً كَحْلَاءَ وَرَقْمَاءَ، وَكُلَّ حِجَارَةٍ كَرِيمَةٍ، وَحِجَارَةَ ٱلرُّخَامِ بِكَثْرَةٍ. ٢ 2
So I have done my best to provide for the temple of my God. I am giving gold for the things to be made of gold, silver for the things to be made of silver, bronze for the things to be made of bronze, iron for the things to be made of iron, and wood for the things to be made of wood. I am also giving onyx stones, stones to be set, stones for inlaid work of various colors—all kinds of precious stones—and marble stone in abundance.
وَأَيْضًا لِأَنِّي قَدْ سُرِرْتُ بِبَيْتِ إِلَهِي، لِي خَاصَّةٌ مِنْ ذَهَبٍ وَفِضَّةٍ قَدْ دَفَعْتُهَا لِبَيْتِ إِلَهِي فَوْقَ جَمِيعِ مَا هَيَّأْتُهُ لِبَيْتِ ٱلْقُدْسِ: ٣ 3
Now, because of my delight in the house of my God, I am giving my personal treasure of gold and silver for it. I am doing this in addition to all that I have prepared for this holy temple:
ثَلَاثَةَ آلَافِ وَزْنَةِ ذَهَبٍ مِنْ ذَهَبِ أُوفِيرَ، وَسَبْعَةَ آلَافِ وَزْنَةِ فِضَّةٍ مُصَفَّاةٍ، لِأَجْلِ تَغْشِيَةِ حِيطَانِ ٱلْبُيُوتِ. ٤ 4
three thousand talents of gold from Ophir, and seven thousand talents of refined silver, in order to overlay the walls of the buildings.
ٱلذَّهَبُ لِلذَّهَبِ، وَٱلْفِضَّةُ لِلْفِضَّةِ وَلِكُلِّ عَمَلٍ بِيَدِ أَرْبَابِ ٱلصَّنَائِعِ. فَمَنْ يَنْتَدِبُ ٱلْيَوْمَ لِمِلْءِ يَدِهِ لِلرَّبِّ؟» ٥ 5
I am donating gold for the things to be made of gold, and silver for the things to be made of silver, and things for all kinds of work to be done by craftsmen. Who else wants to make a contribution to Yahweh today and give himself to him?”
فَٱنْتَدَبَ رُؤَسَاءُ ٱلْآبَاءِ وَرُؤَسَاءُ أَسْبَاطِ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَرُؤَسَاءُ ٱلْأُلُوفِ وَٱلْمِئَاتِ وَرُؤَسَاءُ أَشْغَالِ ٱلْمَلِكِ، ٦ 6
Then freewill offerings were made by the leaders of their ancestors' families, the leaders of the tribes of Israel, the commanders of thousands and hundreds, and by the officials over the king's work.
وَأَعْطَوْا لِخِدْمَةِ بَيْتِ ٱللهِ خَمْسَةَ آلَافِ وَزْنَةٍ وَعَشَرَةَ آلَافِ دِرْهَمٍ مِنَ ٱلذَّهَبِ، وَعَشَرَةَ آلَافِ وَزْنَةٍ مِنَ ٱلْفِضَّةِ، وَثَمَانِيَةَ عَشَرَ أَلْفَ وَزْنَةٍ مِنَ ٱلنُّحَاسِ، وَمِئَةَ أَلْفِ وَزْنَةٍ مِنَ ٱلْحَدِيدِ. ٧ 7
They gave for the service of God's house five thousand talents and ten thousand darics of gold, ten thousand talents of silver, eighteen thousand talents of bronze, and 100,000 talents of iron.
وَمَنْ وُجِدَ عِنْدَهُ حِجَارَةٌ أَعْطَاهَا لِخَزِينَةِ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ عَنْ يَدِ يَحِيئِيلَ ٱلْجَرْشُونِيِّ. ٨ 8
Those who had precious stones gave them to the treasury of Yahweh's house, under the supervision of Jehiel, a descendant of Gershon.
وَفَرِحَ ٱلشَّعْبُ بِٱنْتِدَابِهِمْ، لِأَنَّهُمْ بِقَلْبٍ كَامِلٍ ٱنْتَدَبُوا لِلرَّبِّ. وَدَاوُدُ ٱلْمَلِكُ أَيْضًا فَرِحَ فَرَحًا عَظِيمًا. ٩ 9
The people rejoiced because of these freewill offerings, because they had contributed wholeheartedly to Yahweh. King David also rejoiced greatly.
وَبَارَكَ دَاوُدُ ٱلرَّبَّ أَمَامَ كُلِّ ٱلْجَمَاعَةِ، وَقَالَ دَاوُدُ: «مُبَارَكٌ أَنْتَ أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ أَبِينَا مِنَ ٱلْأَزَلِ وَإِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ. ١٠ 10
David blessed Yahweh in front of all the assembly. He said, “May you be praised, Yahweh, God of Israel our ancestor, forever and ever.
لَكَ يَارَبُّ ٱلْعَظَمَةُ وَٱلْجَبَرُوتُ وَٱلْجَلَالُ وَٱلْبَهَاءُ وَٱلْمَجْدُ، لِأَنَّ لَكَ كُلَّ مَا فِي ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ. لَكَ يَارَبُّ ٱلْمُلْكُ، وَقَدِ ٱرْتَفَعْتَ رَأْسًا عَلَى ٱلْجَمِيعِ. ١١ 11
Yours, Yahweh, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. For all that is in the heavens and on the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, Yahweh, and you are exalted as ruler over all.
وَٱلْغِنَى وَٱلْكَرَامَةُ مِنْ لَدُنْكَ، وَأَنْتَ تَتَسَلَّطُ عَلَى ٱلْجَمِيعِ، وَبِيَدِكَ ٱلْقُوَّةُ وَٱلْجَبَرُوتُ، وَبِيَدِكَ تَعْظِيمُ وَتَشْدِيدُ ٱلْجَمِيعِ. ١٢ 12
Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all people. In your hand is power and might. You possess the strength and might to make people great and to give strength to anyone.
وَٱلْآنَ، يَا إِلَهَنَا نَحْمَدُكَ وَنُسَبِّحُ ٱسْمَكَ ٱلْجَلِيلَ. ١٣ 13
Now then, our God, we thank you and praise your glorious name.
وَلَكِنْ مَنْ أَنَا، وَمَنْ هُوَ شَعْبِي حَتَّى نَسْتَطِيعَ أَنْ نَنْتَدِبَ هَكَذَا؟ لِأَنَّ مِنْكَ ٱلْجَمِيعَ وَمِنْ يَدِكَ أَعْطَيْنَاكَ. ١٤ 14
But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly these things? Indeed, all things come from you, and we have simply given back to you what is yours.
لِأَنَّنَا نَحْنُ غُرَبَاءُ أَمَامَكَ، وَنُزَلَاءُ مِثْلُ كُلِّ آبَائِنَا. أَيَّامُنَا كَٱلظِّلِّ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَلَيْسَ رَجَاءٌ. ١٥ 15
For we are strangers and travelers before you, as all our ancestors were. Our days on the earth are like a shadow, and there is no hope of remaining on earth.
أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُنَا، كُلُّ هَذِهِ ٱلثَّرْوَةِ ٱلَّتِي هَيَّأْنَاهَا لِنَبْنِيَ لَكَ بَيْتًا لِٱسْمِ قُدْسِكَ، إِنَّمَا هِيَ مِنْ يَدِكَ، وَلَكَ ٱلْكُلُّ. ١٦ 16
Yahweh our God, all this wealth that we have collected in order to build a temple to honor your holy name—it comes from you and belongs to you.
وَقَدْ عَلِمْتُ يَا إِلَهِي أَنَّكَ أَنْتَ تَمْتَحِنُ ٱلْقُلُوبَ وَتُسَرُّ بِٱلِٱسْتِقَامَةِ. أَنَا بِٱسْتِقَامَةِ قَلْبِي ٱنْتَدَبْتُ بِكُلِّ هَذِهِ، وَٱلْآنَ شَعْبُكَ ٱلْمَوْجُودُ هُنَا رَأَيْتُهُ بِفَرَحٍ يَنْتَدِبُ لَكَ. ١٧ 17
I know also, my God, that you examine the heart and have pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of my heart I have willingly offered all these things, and now I look with joy as your people who are present here willingly offer gifts to you.
يَارَبُّ إِلَهَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْحَاقَ وَإِسْرَائِيلَ آبَائِنَا، ٱحْفَظْ هَذِهِ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ فِي تَصَوُّرِ أَفْكَارِ قُلُوبِ شَعْبِكَ، وَأَعِدَّ قُلُوبَهُمْ نَحْوَكَ. ١٨ 18
Yahweh, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel—our ancestors—keep this forever in the thoughts of the minds of your people. Direct their hearts toward you.
وَأَمَّا سُلَيْمَانُ ٱبْنِي فَأَعْطِهِ قَلْبًا كَامِلًا لِيَحْفَظَ وَصَايَاكَ، شَهَادَاتِكَ وَفَرَائِضَكَ، وَلِيَعْمَلَ ٱلْجَمِيعَ، وَلِيَبْنِيَ ٱلْهَيْكَلَ ٱلَّذِي هَيَّأْتُ لَهُ». ١٩ 19
Give to Solomon my son a wholehearted desire to keep your commandments, your covenant decrees, and your statutes, and to carry out all these plans to build the palace for which I have made provision.”
ثُمَّ قَالَ دَاوُدُ لِكُلِّ ٱلْجَمَاعَةِ: «بَارِكُوا ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكُمْ». فَبَارَكَ كُلُّ ٱلْجَمَاعَةِ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَ آبَائِهِمْ، وَخَرُّوا وَسَجَدُوا لِلرَّبِّ وَلِلْمَلِكِ. ٢٠ 20
David said to all the assembly, “Now bless Yahweh your God.” All the assembly blessed Yahweh, the God of their ancestors, bowed their heads and worshiped Yahweh and prostrated themselves before the king.
وَذَبَحُوا لِلرَّبِّ ذَبَائِحَ وَأَصْعَدُوا مُحْرَقَاتٍ لِلرَّبِّ فِي غَدِ ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ: أَلْفَ ثَوْرٍ وَأَلْفَ كَبْشٍ وَأَلْفَ خَرُوفٍ مَعَ سَكَائِبِهَا، وَذَبَائِحَ كَثِيرَةً لِكُلِّ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٢١ 21
On the next day, they made sacrifices to Yahweh and offered burnt offerings to him. They offered a thousand bulls, a thousand rams, and a thousand lambs, with their drink offerings and sacrifices in abundance for all Israel.
وَأَكَلُوا وَشَرِبُوا أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ بِفَرَحٍ عَظِيمٍ. وَمَلَّكُوا ثَانِيَةً سُلَيْمَانَ بْنَ دَاوُدَ، وَمَسَحُوهُ لِلرَّبِّ رَئِيسًا، وَصَادُوقَ كَاهِنًا. ٢٢ 22
On that day, they ate and drank before Yahweh with great celebration. They made Solomon, David's son, king a second time, and anointed him with Yahweh's authority to be ruler. They also anointed Zadok to be priest.
وَجَلَسَ سُلَيْمَانُ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّ ٱلرَّبِّ مَلِكًا مَكَانَ دَاوُدَ أَبِيهِ، وَنَجَحَ وَأَطَاعَهُ كُلُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٢٣ 23
Then Solomon sat on Yahweh's throne as king instead of David his father. He prospered, and all Israel obeyed him.
وَجَمِيعُ ٱلرُّؤَسَاءِ وَٱلْأَبْطَالِ وَجَمِيعُ أَوْلَادِ ٱلْمَلِكِ دَاوُدَ أَيْضًا خَضَعُوا لِسُلَيْمَانَ ٱلْمَلِكِ. ٢٤ 24
All the leaders, soldiers, and King David's sons gave allegiance to King Solomon.
وَعَظَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ سُلَيْمَانَ جِدًّا فِي أَعْيُنِ جَمِيعِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَجَعَلَ عَلَيْهِ جَلَالًا مَلِكِيًّا لَمْ يَكُنْ عَلَى مَلِكٍ قَبْلَهُ فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٢٥ 25
Yahweh greatly honored Solomon before all Israel and bestowed on him greater power than he had ever given to any king before him in Israel.
وَدَاوُدُ بْنُ يَسَّى مَلَكَ عَلَى كُلِّ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٢٦ 26
David son of Jesse reigned over all Israel.
وَٱلزَّمَانُ ٱلَّذِي مَلَكَ فِيهِ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ أَرْبَعُونَ سَنَةً. مَلَكَ سَبْعَ سِنِينَ فِي حَبْرُونَ، وَمَلَكَ ثَلَاثًا وَثَلَاثِينَ سَنَةً فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ. ٢٧ 27
David had been king of Israel for forty years. He ruled for seven years in Hebron and for thirty-three years in Jerusalem.
وَمَاتَ بِشَيْبَةٍ صَالِحَةٍ وَقَدْ شَبِعَ أَيَّامًا وَغِنىً وَكَرَامَةً. وَمَلَكَ سُلَيْمَانُ ٱبْنُهُ مَكَانَهُ. ٢٨ 28
He died at a good old age, after enjoying a long life, wealth and honor. Solomon his son succeeded him.
وَأُمُورُ دَاوُدَ ٱلْمَلِكِ ٱلْأُولَى وَٱلْأَخِيرَةُ هِيَ مَكْتُوبَةٌ فِي سِفْرِ أَخْبَارِ صَمُوئِيلَ ٱلرَّائِي، وَأَخْبَارِ نَاثَانَ ٱلنَّبِيِّ، وَأَخْبَارِ جَادَ ٱلرَّائِي، ٢٩ 29
King David's accomplishments are written in the history of Samuel the prophet, in the history of Nathan the prophet, and in the history of Gad the prophet.
مَعَ كُلِّ مُلْكِهِ وَجَبَرُوتِهِ وَٱلْأَوْقَاتِ ٱلَّتِي عَبَرَتْ عَلَيْهِ وَعَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ وَعَلَى كُلِّ مَمَالِكِ ٱلْأُرُوضِ. ٣٠ 30
Recorded there are the deeds of his rule, his accomplishments and the events that affected him, Israel, and all the kingdoms of the other lands.
