1 ملوك 2

وَلَمَّا قَرُبَتْ أَيَّامُ وَفَاةِ دَاوُدَ أَوْصَى سُلَيْمَانَ ٱبْنَهُ قَائِلًا: ١ 1
And the days of David drew near that he should die: and he addressed his son Solomon, saying, I go the way of all the earth:
«أَنَا ذَاهِبٌ فِي طَرِيقِ ٱلْأَرْضِ كُلِّهَا، فَتَشَدَّدْ وَكُنْ رَجُلًا. ٢ 2
but be thou strong, and shew thyself a man;
اِحْفَظْ شَعَائِرَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ، إِذْ تَسِيرُ فِي طُرُقِهِ، وَتَحْفَظُ فَرَائِضَهُ، وَصَايَاهُ وَأَحْكَامَهُ وَشَهَادَاتِهِ، كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ فِي شَرِيعَةِ مُوسَى، لِكَيْ تُفْلِحَ فِي كُلِّ مَا تَفْعَلُ وَحَيْثُمَا تَوَجَّهْتَ. ٣ 3
and keep the charge of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep the commandments and the ordinances and the judgments which are written in the law of Moses; that thou mayest understand what thou shalt do in all things that I command thee:
لِكَيْ يُقِيمَ ٱلرَّبُّ كَلَامَهُ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ عَنِّي قَائِلًا: إِذَا حَفِظَ بَنُوكَ طَرِيقَهُمْ وَسَلَكُوا أَمَامِي بِٱلْأَمَانَةِ مِنْ كُلِّ قُلُوبِهِمْ وَكُلِّ أَنْفُسِهِمْ، قَالَ لَا يُعْدَمُ لَكَ رَجُلٌ عَنْ كُرْسِيِّ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٤ 4
that the Lord may confirm his word which he spoke, saying, If thy children shall take heed to their way to walk before me in truth with all their heart, [I promise thee], saying, there shall not fail thee a man on the throne of Israel.
وَأَنْتَ أَيْضًا تَعْلَمُ مَا فَعَلَ بِي يُوآبُ ٱبْنُ صَرُويَةَ، مَا فَعَلَ لِرَئِيسَيْ جُيُوشِ إِسْرَائِيلَ: ٱبْنَيْرَ بْنِ نَيْرَ وَعَمَاسَا بْنِ يَثْرٍ، إِذْ قَتَلَهُمَا وَسَفَكَ دَمَ ٱلْحَرْبِ فِي ٱلصُّلْحِ، وَجَعَلَ دَمَ ٱلْحَرْبِ فِي مِنْطَقَتِهِ ٱلَّتِي عَلَى حَقَوَيْهِ وَفِي نَعْلَيْهِ ٱللَّتَيْنِ بِرِجْلَيْهِ. ٥ 5
Moreover thou knowest all that Joab the son of Saruia did to me, what he did to the two captains of the forces of Israel, to Abenner the son of Ner, and to Amessai the son of Jether, that he slew them, and shed the blood of war in peace, and put innocent blood on his girdle that was about his loins, and on his sandal that was on his foot.
فَٱفْعَلْ حَسَبَ حِكْمَتِكَ وَلَا تَدَعْ شَيْبَتَهُ تَنْحَدِرُ بِسَلَامٍ إِلَى ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ. (Sheol h7585) ٦ 6
Therefore thou shalt deal [with him] according to thy wisdom, and thou shalt not bring down his grey hairs in peace to the grave. (Sheol h7585)
وَٱفْعَلْ مَعْرُوفًا لِبَنِي بَرْزِلَّايِ ٱلْجِلْعَادِيِّ فَيَكُونُوا بَيْنَ ٱلْآكِلِينَ عَلَى مَائِدَتِكَ، لِأَنَّهُمْ هَكَذَا تَقَدَّمُوا إِلَيَّ عِنْدَ هَرَبِي مِنْ وَجْهِ أَبْشَالُومَ أَخِيكَ. ٧ 7
But thou shalt deal kindly with the sons of Berzelli the Galaadite, and they shall be among those that eat at thy table; for thus they drew nigh to me when I fled from the face of thy brother Abessalom.
وَهُوَذَا مَعَكَ شِمْعِي بْنُ جِيرَا ٱلْبَنْيَامِينِيُّ مِنْ بَحُورِيمَ، وَهُوَ لَعَنَنِي لَعْنَةً شَدِيدَةً يَوْمَ ٱنْطَلَقْتُ إِلَى مَحَنَايِمَ، وَقَدْ نَزَلَ لِلِقَائِي إِلَى ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ، فَحَلَفْتُ لَهُ بِٱلرَّبِّ قَائِلًا: إِنِّي لَا أُمِيتُكَ بِٱلسَّيْفِ. ٨ 8
And, behold, [there is] with thee Semei the son of Gera, a Benjamite of Baurim: and he cursed me with a grievous curse in the day when I went into the camp; and he came down to Jordan to meet me, and I swore to him by the Lord, saying, I will not put thee to death with the sword.
وَٱلْآنَ فَلَا تُبَرِّرْهُ لِأَنَّكَ أَنْتَ رَجُلٌ حَكِيمٌ، فَٱعْلَمْ مَا تَفْعَلُ بِهِ وَأَحْدِرْ شَيْبَتَهُ بِٱلدَّمِ إِلَى ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ».». (Sheol h7585) ٩ 9
But thou shalt by no means hold him guiltless, for thou art a wise man, and wilt know what thou shalt do to him, and shalt bring down his grey hairs with blood to the grave. (Sheol h7585)
وَٱضْطَجَعَ دَاوُدُ مَعَ آبَائِهِ، وَدُفِنَ فِي مَدِينَةِ دَاوُدَ. ١٠ 10
And David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David.
وَكَانَ ٱلزَّمَانُ ٱلَّذِي مَلَكَ فِيهِ دَاوُدُ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ أَرْبَعِينَ سَنَةً. فِي حَبْرُونَ مَلَكَ سَبْعَ سِنِينٍ، وَفِي أُورُشَلِيمَ مَلَكَ ثَلَاثًا وَثَلَاثِينَ سَنَةً. ١١ 11
And the days which David reigned over Israel [were] forty years; he reigned seven years in Chebron, and thirty-three years in Jerusalem.
وَجَلَسَ سُلَيْمَانُ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّ دَاوُدَ أَبِيهِ، وَتَثَبَّتَ مُلْكُهُ جِدًّا. ١٢ 12
And Solomon sat on the throne of his father David, and his kingdom was established greatly.
ثُمَّ جَاءَ أَدُونِيَّا ٱبْنُ حَجِّيثَ إِلَى بَثْشَبَعَ أُمِّ سُلَيْمَانَ. فَقَالَتْ: «أَلِلسَّلَامِ جِئْتَ؟» فَقَالَ: «لِلسَّلَامِ». ١٣ 13
And Adonias the son of Aggith came in to Bersabee the mother of Solomon, and did obeisance to her: and she said, Dost thou enter peaceably? and he said, Peaceably:
ثُمَّ قَالَ: «لِي مَعَكِ كَلِمَةٌ». فَقَالَتْ: «تَكَلَّمْ». ١٤ 14
I have business with thee. And she said to him, Say on.
فَقَالَ: «أَنْتِ تَعْلَمِينَ أَنَّ ٱلْمُلْكَ كَانَ لِي، وَقَدْ جَعَلَ جَمِيعُ إِسْرَائِيلَ وُجُوهَهُمْ نَحْوِي لِأَمْلِكَ، فَدَارَ ٱلْمُلْكُ وَصَارَ لِأَخِي لِأَنَّهُ مِنْ قِبَلِ ٱلرَّبِّ صَارَ لَهُ. ١٥ 15
And he said to her, Thou knowest that the kingdom was mine, and all Israel turned their face toward me for a king; but the kingdom was turned [from me] and became my brother's: for it was [appointed] to him from the Lord.
وَٱلْآنَ أَسْأَلُكِ سُؤَالًا وَاحِدًا فَلَا تَرُدِّينِي فِيهِ». فَقَالَتْ لَهُ: «تَكَلَّمْ». ١٦ 16
And now I make one request of thee, do not turn away thy face. And Bersabee said to him, Speak [on].
فَقَالَ: «قُولِي لِسُلَيْمَانَ ٱلْمَلِكِ، لِأَنَّهُ لَا يَرُدُّكِ، أَنْ يُعْطِيَنِي أَبِيشَجَ ٱلشُّونَمِيَّةَ ٱمْرَأَةً». ١٧ 17
And he said to her, Speak, I pray thee, to king Solomon, for he will not turn away his face from thee, and let him give me Abisag the Somanite for a wife.
فَقَالَتْ بَثْشَبَعُ: «حَسَنًا. أَنَا أَتَكَلَّمُ عَنْكَ إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ». ١٨ 18
And Bersabee said, Well; I will speak for thee to the king.
فَدَخَلَتْ بَثْشَبَعُ إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ سُلَيْمَانَ لِتُكَلِّمَهُ عَنْ أَدُونِيَّا. فَقَامَ ٱلْمَلِكُ لِلِقَائِهَا وَسَجَدَ لَهَا وَجَلَسَ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّهِ، وَوَضَعَ كُرْسِيًّا لِأُمِّ ٱلْمَلِكِ فَجَلَسَتْ عَنْ يَمِينِهِ. ١٩ 19
And Bersabee went in to king Solomon to speak to him concerning Adonias; and the king rose up to meet her, and kissed her, and sat on the throne, and a throne was set for the mother of the king, and she sat on his right hand.
وَقَالَتْ: «إِنَّمَا أَسْأَلُكَ سُؤَالًا وَاحِدًا صَغِيرًا. لَا تَرُدَّنِي». فَقَالَ لَهَا ٱلْمَلِكُ: «ٱسْأَلِي يَا أُمِّي، لِأَنِّي لَا أَرُدُّكِ». ٢٠ 20
And she said to him, I ask of thee one little request; turn not away my face from thee. And the king said to her, Ask, my mother, and I will not reject thee.
فَقَالَتْ: «لِتُعْطَ أَبِيشَجُ ٱلشُّونَمِيَّةُ لِأَدُونِيَّا أَخِيكَ ٱمْرَأَةً». ٢١ 21
And she said, Let, I pray thee, Abisag the Somanite be given to Adonias thy brother to wife.
فَأَجَابَ ٱلْمَلِكُ سُلَيْمَانُ وَقَالَ لِأُمِّهِ: «وَلِمَاذَا أَنْتِ تَسْأَلِينَ أَبِيشَجَ ٱلشُّونَمِيَّةَ لِأَدُونِيَّا؟ فَٱسْأَلِي لَهُ ٱلْمُلْكَ لِأَنَّهُ أَخِي ٱلْأَكْبَرُ مِنِّي! لَهُ وَلِأَبِيَاثَارَ ٱلْكَاهِنِ وَلِيُوآبَ ٱبْنِ صَرُويَةَ». ٢٢ 22
And king Solomon answered and said to his mother, And why hast thou asked Abisag for Adonias? ask for him the kingdom also; for he [is] my elder brother, and he has for his companion Abiathar the priest, and Joab the son of Saruia the commander-in-chief.
وَحَلَفَ سُلَيْمَانُ ٱلْمَلِكُ بِٱلرَّبِّ قَائِلًا: «هَكَذَا يَفْعَلُ لِيَ ٱللهُ وَهَكَذَا يَزِيدُ، إِنَّهُ قَدْ تَكَلَّمَ أَدُونِيَّا بِهَذَا ٱلْكَلَامِ ضِدَّ نَفْسِهِ. ٢٣ 23
And king Solomon swore by the Lord, saying, God do so to me, and more also, [if it be not] that Adonias has spoken this word against his own life.
وَٱلْآنَ حَيٌّ هُوَ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلَّذِي ثَبَّتَنِي وَأَجْلَسَنِي عَلَى كُرْسِيِّ دَاوُدَ أَبِي، وَٱلَّذِي صَنَعَ لِي بَيْتًا كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ، إِنَّهُ ٱلْيَوْمَ يُقْتَلُ أَدُونِيَّا». ٢٤ 24
And now [as] the Lord lives who has established me, and set me on the throne of my father David, and he has made me a house, as the Lord spoke, this day shall Adonias be put to death.
فَأَرْسَلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ سُلَيْمَانُ بِيَدِ بَنَايَاهُو بْنِ يَهُويَادَاعَ، فَبَطَشَ بِهِ فَمَاتَ. ٢٥ 25
So king Solomon sent by the hand of Banaeas the son of Jodae, and he slew him, and Adonias died in that day.
وَقَالَ ٱلْمَلِكُ لِأَبِيَاثَارَ ٱلْكَاهِنِ: «ٱذْهَبْ إِلَى عَنَاثُوثَ إِلَى حُقُولِكَ، لِأَنَّكَ مُسْتَوْجِبُ ٱلْمَوْتِ، وَلَسْتُ أَقْتُلُكَ فِي هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ، لِأَنَّكَ حَمَلْتَ تَابُوتَ سَيِّدِي ٱلرَّبِّ أَمَامَ دَاوُدَ أَبِي، وَلِأَنَّكَ تَذَلَّلْتَ بِكُلِّ مَا تَذَلَّلَ بِهِ أَبِي». ٢٦ 26
And the king said to Abiathar the priest, Depart thou quickly to Anathoth to thy farm, for thou art worthy of death this day; but I will not slay thee, because thou hast borne the ark of the covenant of the Lord before my father, and because thou was afflicted in all things wherein my father was afflicted.
وَطَرَدَ سُلَيْمَانُ أَبِيَاثَارَ عَنْ أَنْ يَكُونَ كَاهِنًا لِلرَّبِّ، لِإِتْمَامِ كَلَامِ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ عَلَى بَيْتِ عَالِي فِي شِيلُوهَ. ٢٧ 27
And Solomon removed Abiathar from being a priest of the Lord, that the word of the Lord might be fulfilled, which he spoke concerning the house of Heli in Selom.
فَأَتَى ٱلْخَبَرُ إِلَى يُوآبَ، لِأَنَّ يُوآبَ مَالَ وَرَاءَ أَدُونِيَّا وَلَمْ يَمِلْ وَرَاءَ أَبْشَالُومَ، فَهَرَبَ يُوآبُ إِلَى خَيْمَةِ ٱلرَّبِّ وَتَمَسَّكَ بِقُرُونِ ٱلْمَذْبَحِ. ٢٨ 28
And the report came to Joab son of Saruia; for Joab had turned after Adonias, and he went not after Solomon: and Joab fled to the tabernacle of the Lord, and caught hold of the horns of the altar.
فَأُخْبِرَ ٱلْمَلِكُ سُلَيْمَانُ بِأَنَّ يُوآبَ قَدْ هَرَبَ إِلَى خَيْمَةِ ٱلرَّبِّ وَهَا هُوَ بِجَانِبِ ٱلْمَذْبَحِ. فَأَرْسَلَ سُلَيْمَانُ بَنَايَاهُوَ بْنَ يَهُويَادَاعَ قَائِلًا: «ٱذْهَبِ ٱبْطِشْ بِهِ». ٢٩ 29
And it was told Solomon, saying, Joab has fled to the tabernacle of the Lord, and lo! he has hold of the horns of the altar. And king Solomon sent to Joab, saying, What ails thee, that thou hast fled to the altar? and Joab said, Because I was afraid of thee, and fled for refuge to the Lord. And Solomon sent Banaeas son of Jodae, saying, Go and slay him, and bury him.
فَدَخَلَ بَنَايَاهُو إِلَى خَيْمَةِ ٱلرَّبِّ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «هَكَذَا يَقُولُ ٱلْمَلِكُ: ٱخْرُجْ». فَقَالَ: «كَّلَا، وَلَكِنَّنِي هُنَا أَمُوتُ». فَرَدَّ بَنَايَاهُو ٱلْجَوَابَ عَلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ قَائِلًا: «هَكَذَا تَكَلَّمَ يُوآبُ وَهَكَذَا جَاوَبَنِي». ٣٠ 30
And Banaeas son of Jodae came to Joab to the tabernacle of the Lord, and said to him, Thus says the king, Come forth. And Joab said, I will not come forth, for I will die here. And Banaeas son of Jodae returned and spoke to the king, saying, Thus has Joab spoken, and thus has he answered me.
فَقَالَ لَهُ ٱلْمَلِكُ: «ٱفْعَلْ كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ، وَٱبْطِشْ بِهِ وَٱدْفِنْهُ، وَأَزِلْ عَنِّي وَعَنْ بَيْتِ أَبِي ٱلدَّمَ ٱلزَّكِيَّ ٱلَّذِي سَفَكَهُ يُوآبُ، ٣١ 31
And the king said to him, Go, and do to him as he has spoken, and kill him: and thou shalt bury him, and thou shalt remove this day the blood which he shed without cause, from me and from the house of my father.
فَيَرُدُّ ٱلرَّبُّ دَمَهُ عَلَى رَأْسِهِ، لِأَنَّهُ بَطَشَ بِرَجُلَيْنِ بَرِيئَيْنِ وَخَيْرٍ مِنْهُ وَقَتَلَهُمَا بِٱلسَّيْفِ، وَأَبِي دَاوُدُ لَا يَعْلَمُ، وَهُمَا أَبْنَيْرُ بْنُ نَيْرٍ رَئِيسُ جَيْشِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَعَمَاسَا بْنُ يَثَرٍ رَئِيسُ جَيْشِ يَهُوذَا. ٣٢ 32
And the Lord has returned upon his own head the blood of his unrighteousness, inasmuch as he attacked two men more righteous and better than himself, and slew them with the sword, and my father David knew not of their blood, [even] Abenner the son of Ner the commander-in-chief of Israel, and Amessa the son of Jether the commander-in-chief of Juda.
فَيَرْتَدُّ دَمُهُمَا عَلَى رَأْسِ يُوآبَ وَرَأْسِ نَسْلِهِ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ، وَيَكُونُ لِدَاوُدَ وَنَسْلِهِ وَبَيْتِهِ وَكُرْسِيِّهِ سَلَامٌ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ مِنْ عِنْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ». ٣٣ 33
And their blood is returned upon his head, and upon the head of his seed for ever: but to David, and his seed, and his house, and his throne, may there be peace for ever from the Lord.
فَصَعِدَ بَنَايَاهُو بْنُ يَهُويَادَاعَ وَبَطَشَ بِهِ وَقَتَلَهُ، فَدُفِنَ فِي بَيْتِهِ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ. ٣٤ 34
So Banaeas son of Jodae went up, and attacked him, and slew him, and buried him in his house in the wilderness.
وَجَعَلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ بَنَايَاهُوَ بْنَ يَهُويَادَاعَ مَكَانَهُ عَلَى ٱلْجَيْشِ، وَجَعَلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ صَادُوقَ ٱلْكَاهِنَ مَكَانَ أَبِيَاثَارَ. ٣٥ 35
And the king appointed Banaeas son of Jodae in his place over the host; and the kingdom was established in Jerusalem; and [as for] Sadoc the priest, the king appointed him to be high priest in the room of Abiathar. And Solomon son of David reigned over Israel and Juda in Jerusalem: and the Lord gave understanding to Solomon, and very much wisdom, and largeness of heart, as the sand by the sea-shore.
ثُمَّ أَرْسَلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَدَعَا شِمْعِيَ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «اِبْنِ لِنَفْسِكَ بَيْتًا فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ، وَأَقِمْ هُنَاكَ وَلَا تَخْرُجْ مِنْ هُنَاكَ إِلَى هُنَا أَوْ هُنَالِكَ. ٣٦ 36
فَيَوْمَ تَخْرُجُ وَتَعْبُرُ وَادِيَ قَدْرُونَ، ٱعْلَمَنَّ بِأَنَّكَ مَوْتًا تَمُوتُ، وَيَكُونُ دَمُكَ عَلَى رَأْسِكَ». ٣٧ 37
فَقَالَ شِمْعِي لِلْمَلِكِ: «حَسَنٌ ٱلْأَمْرُ. كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ سَيِّدِي ٱلْمَلِكُ كَذَلِكَ يَصْنَعُ عَبْدُكَ». فَأَقَامَ شِمْعِي فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ أَيَّامًا كَثِيرَةً. ٣٨ 38
وَفِي نِهَايَةِ ثَلَاثِ سِنِينَ هَرَبَ عَبْدَانِ لِشِمْعِي إِلَى أَخِيشَ بْنِ مَعْكَةَ مَلِكِ جَتَّ، فَأَخْبَرُوا شِمْعِي قَائِلِينَ: «هُوَذَا عَبْدَاكَ فِي جَتَّ». ٣٩ 39
فَقَامَ شِمْعِي وَشَدَّ عَلَى حِمَارِهِ وَذَهَبَ إِلَى جَتَّ إِلَى أَخِيشَ لِيُفَتِّشَ عَلَى عَبْدَيْهِ، فَٱنْطَلَقَ شِمْعِي وَأَتَى بِعَبْدَيْهِ مِنْ جَتَّ. ٤٠ 40
فَأُخْبِرَ سُلَيْمَانُ بِأَنَّ شِمْعِي قَدِ ٱنْطَلَقَ مِنْ أُورُشَلِيمَ إِلَى جَتَّ وَرَجَعَ. ٤١ 41
فَأَرْسَلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَدَعَا شِمْعِيَ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «أَمَا ٱسْتَحْلَفْتُكَ بِٱلرَّبِّ وَأَشْهَدْتُ عَلَيْكَ قَائِلًا: إِنَّكَ يَوْمَ تَخْرُجُ وَتَذْهَبُ إِلَى هُنَا وَهُنَالِكَ، ٱعْلَمَنَّ بِأَنَّكَ مَوْتًا تَمُوتُ؟ فَقُلْتَ لِي: حَسَنٌ ٱلْأَمْرُ. قَدْ سَمِعْتُ. ٤٢ 42
فَلِمَاذَا لَمْ تَحْفَظْ يَمِينَ ٱلرَّبِّ وَٱلْوَصِيَّةَ ٱلَّتِي أَوْصَيْتُكَ بِهَا؟». ٤٣ 43
ثُمَّ قَالَ ٱلْمَلِكُ لِشِمْعِي: «أَنْتَ عَرَفْتَ كُلَّ ٱلشَّرِّ ٱلَّذِي عَلِمَهُ قَلْبُكَ ٱلَّذِي فَعَلْتَهُ لِدَاوُدَ أَبِي، فَلِيَرُدَّ ٱلرَّبُّ شَرَّكَ عَلَى رَأْسِكَ. ٤٤ 44
وَٱلْمَلِكُ سُلَيْمَانُ يُبَارَكُ، وَكُرْسِيُّ دَاوُدَ يَكُونُ ثَابِتًا أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ». ٤٥ 45
وَأَمَرَ ٱلْمَلِكُ بَنَايَاهُوَ بْنَ يَهُويَادَاعَ، فَخَرَجَ وَبَطَشَ بِهِ فَمَاتَ. وَتَثَبَّتَ ٱلْمُلْكُ بِيَدِ سُلَيْمَانَ. ٤٦ 46
