اَلْمُلُوكِ ٱلْأَوَّلُ 21

وَحَدَثَ بَعْدَ هَذِهِ ٱلْأُمُورِ أَنَّهُ كَانَ لِنَابُوتَ ٱلْيَزْرَعِيلِيِّ كَرْمٌ فِي يَزْرَعِيلَ بِجَانِبِ قَصْرِ أَخْآبَ مَلِكِ ٱلسَّامِرَةِ. ١ 1
Now some time later, Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard in Jezreel, near the palace of Ahab, king of Samaria.
فَكَلَّمَ أَخْآبُ نَابُوتَ قَائِلًا: «أَعْطِنِي كَرْمَكَ فَيَكُونَ لِي بُسْتَانَ بُقُولٍ، لِأَنَّهُ قَرِيبٌ بِجَانِبِ بَيْتِي، فَأُعْطِيَكَ عِوَضَهُ كَرْمًا أَحْسَنَ مِنْهُ. أَوْ إِذَا حَسُنَ فِي عَيْنَيْكَ أَعْطَيْتُكَ ثَمَنَهُ فِضَّةً». ٢ 2
Ahab spoke to Naboth, saying, “Give me your vineyard, so I can have it as a vegetable garden, because it is near my house. In exchange, I will give you a better vineyard, or, if you prefer, I will pay you its value in money.”
فَقَالَ نَابُوتُ لِأَخْآبَ: «حَاشَا لِي مِنْ قِبَلِ ٱلرَّبِّ أَنْ أُعْطِيَكَ مِيرَاثَ آبَائِي». ٣ 3
Naboth replied to Ahab, “May Yahweh forbid that I should give the inheritance of my ancestors to you.”
فَدَخَلَ أَخْآبُ بَيْتَهُ مُكْتَئِبًا مَغْمُومًا مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱلْكَلَامِ ٱلَّذِي كَلَّمَهُ بِهِ نَابُوتُ ٱلْيَزْرَعِيلِيُّ قَائِلًا: «لَا أُعْطِيكَ مِيرَاثَ آبَائِي». وَٱضْطَجَعَ عَلَى سَرِيرِهِ وَحَوَّلَ وَجْهَهُ وَلَمْ يَأْكُلْ خُبْزًا. ٤ 4
So Ahab went into his palace resentful and angry because of the answer Naboth the Jezreelite gave him when he said, “I will not give you the inheritance of my ancestors.” He lay down on his bed, turned away his face, and refused to eat any food.
فَدَخَلَتْ إِلَيْهِ إِيزَابَلُ ٱمْرَأَتُهُ وَقَالَتْ لَهُ: «لِمَاذَا رُوحُكَ مُكْتَئِبَةٌ وَلَا تَأْكُلُ خُبْزًا؟» ٥ 5
Jezebel his wife came to him and said to him, “Why is your heart so sad, so that you eat no food?”
فَقَالَ لَهَا: «لِأَنِّي كَلَّمْتُ نَابُوتَ ٱلْيَزْرَعِيلِيَّ وَقُلْتُ لَهُ: أَعْطِنِي كَرْمَكَ بِفِضَّةٍ، وَإِذَا شِئْتَ أَعْطَيْتُكَ كَرْمًا عِوَضَهُ، فَقَالَ: لَا أُعْطِيكَ كَرْمِي». ٦ 6
He replied to her, “I spoke to Naboth the Jezreelite and said to him, 'Give me your vineyard for money, or if it pleases you, I will give you another vineyard to be yours.' Then he answered me, 'I will not give you my vineyard.'”
فَقَالَتْ لَهُ إِيزَابَلُ: «أَأَنْتَ ٱلْآنَ تَحْكُمُ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ؟ قُمْ كُلْ خُبْزًا وَلْيَطِبْ قَلْبُكَ. أَنَا أُعْطِيكَ كَرْمَ نَابُوتَ ٱلْيَزْرَعِيلِيِّ». ٧ 7
So Jezebel his wife replied to him, “Do you not still rule the kingdom of Israel? Get up and eat; let your heart be happy. I will obtain for you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.”
ثُمَّ كَتَبَتْ رَسَائِلَ بِٱسْمِ أَخْآبَ، وَخَتَمَتْهَا بِخَاتِمِهِ، وَأَرْسَلَتِ ٱلرَّسَائِلَ إِلَى ٱلشُّيُوخِ وَٱلْأَشْرَافِ ٱلَّذِينَ فِي مَدِينَتِهِ ٱلسَّاكِنِينَ مَعَ نَابُوتَ. ٨ 8
So Jezebel wrote letters in Ahab's name, sealed them with his seal, and sent them to the elders and to the wealthy who sat with him in meetings, and who lived near Naboth.
وَكَتَبَتْ فِي ٱلرَّسَائِلِ تَقُولُ: «نَادُوا بِصَوْمٍ، وَأَجْلِسُوا نَابُوتَ فِي رَأْسِ ٱلشَّعْبِ. ٩ 9
She wrote in the letters, saying, “Proclaim a fast and seat Naboth above the people.
وَأَجْلِسُوا رَجُلَيْنِ مِنْ بَنِي بَلِيَّعَالَ تُجَاهَهُ لِيَشْهَدَا قَائِلَيْنِ: قَدْ جَدَّفْتَ عَلَى ٱللهِ وَعَلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ. ثُمَّ أَخْرِجُوهُ وَٱرْجُمُوهُ فَيَمُوتَ». ١٠ 10
Also place two dishonest men with him and let them testify against him, saying, 'You cursed God and the king.'” Then take him out and stone him to death.
فَفَعَلَ رِجَالُ مَدِينَتِهِ، ٱلشُّيُوخُ وَٱلْأَشْرَافُ ٱلسَّاكِنُونَ فِي مَدِينَتِهِ، كَمَا أَرْسَلَتْ إِلَيْهِمْ إِيزَابَلُ، كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ فِي ٱلرَّسَائِلِ ٱلَّتِي أَرْسَلَتْهَا إِلَيْهِمْ. ١١ 11
So the men of his city, the elders and the wealthy who lived in Naboth's city, did as Jezebel had described to them, as was written in the letters that she had sent to them.
فَنَادَوْا بِصَوْمٍ وَأَجْلَسُوا نَابُوتَ فِي رَأْسِ ٱلشَّعْبِ. ١٢ 12
They proclaimed a fast and seated Naboth above the people.
وَأَتَى رَجُلَانِ مِنْ بَنِي بَلِيَّعَالَ وَجَلَسَا تُجَاهَهُ، وَشَهِدَ رَجُلَا بِليَّعَالَ عَلَى نَابُوتَ أَمَامَ ٱلشَّعْبِ قَائِلَيْنِ: «قَدْ جَدَّفَ نَابُوتُ عَلَى ٱللهِ وَعَلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ». فَأَخْرَجُوهُ خَارِجَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ وَرَجَمُوهُ بِحِجَارَةٍ فَمَاتَ. ١٣ 13
The two dishonest men came in and sat before Naboth; they testified against Naboth in the presence of the people, saying, “Naboth cursed both God and the king.” Then they carried him out of the city and stoned him to death.
وَأَرْسَلُوا إِلَى إِيزَابَلَ يَقُولُونَ: «قَدْ رُجِمَ نَابُوتُ وَمَاتَ». ١٤ 14
Then the elders sent word to Jezebel, saying, “Naboth has been stoned and is dead.”
وَلَمَّا سَمِعَتْ إِيزَابَلُ أَنَّ نَابُوتَ قَدْ رُجِمَ وَمَاتَ، قَالَتْ إِيزَابَلُ لِأَخْآبَ: «قُمْ رِثْ كَرْمَ نَابُوتَ ٱلْيَزْرَعِيلِيِّ ٱلَّذِي أَبَى أَنْ يُعْطِيَكَ إِيَّاهُ بِفِضَّةٍ، لِأَنَّ نَابُوتَ لَيْسَ حَيًّا بَلْ هُوَ مَيْتٌ». ١٥ 15
So when Jezebel heard that Naboth had been stoned and was dead, she said to Ahab, “Get up and take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give you for money, because Naboth is not alive, but dead.”
وَلَمَّا سَمِعَ أَخْآبُ أَنَّ نَابُوتَ قَدْ مَاتَ، قَامَ أَخْآبُ لِيَنْزِلَ إِلَى كَرْمِ نَابُوتَ ٱلْيَزْرَعِيلِيِّ لِيَرِثَهُ. ١٦ 16
When Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, he rose up to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite and take possession of it.
فَكَانَ كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى إِيلِيَّا ٱلتِّشْبِيِّ قَائِلًا: ١٧ 17
Then the word of Yahweh came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying,
«قُمِ ٱنْزِلْ لِلِقَاءِ أَخْآبَ مَلِكِ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلَّذِي فِي ٱلسَّامِرَةِ. هُوَذَا هُوَ فِي كَرْمِ نَابُوتَ ٱلَّذِي نَزَلَ إِلَيْهِ لِيَرِثَهُ. ١٨ 18
“Get up and go meet Ahab king of Israel, who lives in Samaria. He is in the vineyard of Naboth, where he has gone to take possession of it.
وَكَلِّمْهُ قَائِلًا: هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: هَلْ قَتَلْتَ وَوَرِثْتَ أَيْضًا؟ ثُمَّ كَلِّمْهُ قَائِلًا: هَكَذاَ قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: فِي ٱلْمَكَانِ ٱلَّذِي لَحَسَتْ فِيهِ ٱلْكِلَابُ دَمَ نَابُوتَ تَلْحَسُ ٱلْكِلَابُ دَمَكَ أَنْتَ أَيْضًا». ١٩ 19
You must speak to him and say that Yahweh says, 'Have you killed and also taken possession?' Then you will tell him that Yahweh says, 'In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth, the dogs will lick your blood, yes, your blood.'”
فَقَالَ أَخْآبُ لِإِيلِيَّا: «هَلْ وَجَدْتَنِي يَا عَدُوِّي؟» فَقَالَ: «قَدْ وَجَدْتُكَ لِأَنَّكَ قَدْ بِعْتَ نَفْسَكَ لِعَمَلِ ٱلشَّرِّ فِي عَيْنَيِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٢٠ 20
Ahab said to Elijah, “Have you found me, my enemy?” Elijah answered, “I have found you, because you have sold yourself to do what is evil in the sight of Yahweh.
هَأَنَذَا أَجْلِبُ عَلَيْكَ شَرًّا، وَأُبِيدُ نَسْلَكَ، وَأَقْطَعُ لِأَخْآبَ كُلَّ بَائِلٍ بِحَائِطٍ وَمَحْجُوزٍ وَمُطْلَقٍ فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٢١ 21
Yahweh says this to you: 'See, I will bring disaster on you and will completely consume and cut off from you every male child and slave and free man in Israel.
وَأَجْعَلُ بَيْتَكَ كَبَيْتِ يَرُبْعَامَ بْنِ نَبَاطَ، وَكَبَيْتِ بَعْشَا بْنِ أَخِيَّا، لِأَجْلِ ٱلْإِغَاظَةِ ٱلَّتِي أَغَظْتَنِي، وَلِجَعْلِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ يُخْطِئُ». ٢٢ 22
I will make your family like the family of Jeroboam son of Nebat, and like the family of Baasha son of Ahijah, because you have provoked me to anger and have led Israel to sin.'
وَتَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ عَنْ إِيزَابَلَ أَيْضًا قَائِلًا: «إِنَّ ٱلْكِلَابَ تَأْكُلُ إِيزَابَلَ عِنْدَ مِتْرَسَةِ يَزْرَعِيلَ. ٢٣ 23
Yahweh has also spoken concerning Jezebel, saying, 'The dogs will eat Jezebel beside the wall of Jezreel.'
مَنْ مَاتَ لِأَخْآبَ فِي ٱلْمَدِينَةِ تَأْكُلُهُ ٱلْكِلَابُ، وَمَنْ مَاتَ فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ تَأْكُلُهُ طُيُورُ ٱلسَّمَاءِ». ٢٤ 24
Anyone who belongs to Ahab and dies in the city, the dogs will eat; and the birds of the sky will eat anyone who dies in the field.”
وَلَمْ يَكُنْ كَأَخْآبَ ٱلَّذِي بَاعَ نَفْسَهُ لِعَمَلِ ٱلشَّرِّ فِي عَيْنَيِ ٱلرَّبِّ، ٱلَّذِي أَغْوَتْهُ إِيزَابَلُ ٱمْرَأَتُهُ. ٢٥ 25
There was no one like Ahab, who sold himself to do what was evil in the sight of Yahweh, whom Jezebel his wife incited to sin.
وَرَجِسَ جِدًّا بِذَهَابِهِ وَرَاءَ ٱلْأَصْنَامِ حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا فَعَلَ ٱلْأَمُورِيُّونَ ٱلَّذِينَ طَرَدَهُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ مِنْ أَمَامِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٢٦ 26
Ahab did disgusting deeds for the idols he followed, just as all that the Amorites had done, those whom Yahweh had removed before the people of Israel.
وَلَمَّا سَمِعَ أَخْآبُ هَذَا ٱلْكَلَامَ، شَقَّ ثِيَابَهُ وَجَعَلَ مِسْحًا عَلَى جَسَدِهِ، وَصَامَ وَٱضْطَجَعَ بِٱلْمِسْحِ وَمَشَى بِسُكُوتٍ. ٢٧ 27
When Ahab heard these words, he tore his clothes and put sackcloth on his body and fasted, and lay in sackcloth and became very sad.
فَكَانَ كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى إِيلِيَّا ٱلتِّشْبِيِّ قَائِلًا: ٢٨ 28
Then the word of Yahweh came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying,
«هَلْ رَأَيْتَ كَيْفَ ٱتَّضَعَ أَخْآبُ أَمَامِي؟ فَمِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّهُ قَدِ ٱتَّضَعَ أَمَامِي لَا أَجْلِبُ ٱلشَّرَّ فِي أَيَّامِهِ، بَلْ فِي أَيَّامِ ٱبْنِهِ أَجْلِبُ ٱلشَّرَّ عَلَى بَيْتِهِ». ٢٩ 29
“Do you see how Ahab humbles himself before me? Because he humbles himself before me, I will not bring the coming disaster in his days; it is in his son's day that I will bring disaster on his family.”
