حِينَئِذٍ جَمَعَ سُلَيْمَانُ شُيُوخَ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَكُلَّ رُؤُوسِ ٱلْأَسْبَاطِ، رُؤَسَاءَ ٱلْآبَاءِ مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ سُلَيْمَانَ فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ، لِإِصْعَادِ تَابُوتِ عَهْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ مِنْ مَدِينَةِ دَاوُدَ، هِيَ صِهْيَوْنُ.١1
And it came to pass when Solomon had finished building the house of the Lord and his own house after twenty years, then king Solomon assembled all the elders of Israel in Sion, to bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord out of the city of David, this is Sion,
فَٱجْتَمَعَ إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ سُلَيْمَانَ جَمِيعُ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي ٱلْعِيدِ فِي شَهْرِ أَيْثَانِيمَ، هُوَ ٱلشَّهْرُ ٱلسَّابِعُ.٢2
in the month of Athanin.
وَجَاءَ جَمِيعُ شُيُوخِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَحَمَلَ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ ٱلتَّابُوتَ.٣3
And the priests took up the ark,
وَأَصْعَدُوا تَابُوتَ ٱلرَّبِّ وَخَيْمَةَ ٱلِٱجْتِمَاعِ مَعَ جَمِيعِ آنِيَةِ ٱلْقُدْسِ ٱلَّتِي فِي ٱلْخَيْمَةِ، فَأَصْعَدَهَا ٱلْكَهَنَةُ وَٱللَّاوِيُّونَ.٤4
and the tabernacle of testimony, and the holy furniture that was in the tabernacle of testimony.
وَٱلْمَلِكُ سُلَيْمَانُ وَكُلُّ جَمَاعَةِ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلْمُجْتَمِعِينَ إِلَيْهِ مَعَهُ أَمَامَ ٱلتَّابُوتِ، كَانُوا يَذْبَحُونَ مِنَ ٱلْغَنَمِ وَٱلْبَقَرِ مَا لَا يُحْصَى وَلَا يُعَدُّ مِنَ ٱلْكَثْرَةِ.٥5
And the king and all Israel [were occupied] before the ark, sacrificing sheep [and] oxen, without number.
وَأَدْخَلَ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ تَابُوتَ عَهْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى مَكَانِهِ فِي مِحْرَابِ ٱلْبَيْتِ فِي قُدْسِ ٱلْأَقْدَاسِ، إِلَى تَحْتِ جَنَاحَيِ ٱلْكَرُوبَيْنِ،٦6
And the priests bring in the ark into its place, into the oracle of the house, even into the holy of holies, under the wings of the cherubs.
لِأَنَّ ٱلْكَرُوبَيْنِ بَسَطَا أَجْنِحَتَهُمَا عَلَى مَوْضِعِ ٱلتَّابُوتِ، وَظَلَّلَ ٱلْكَرُوبَانِ ٱلتَّابُوتَ وَعِصِيَّهُ مِنْ فَوْقُ.٧7
For the cherubs spread out their wings over the place of the ark, and the cherubs covered the ark and its holy things above.
وَجَذَبُوا ٱلْعِصِيَّ فَتَرَاءَتْ رُؤُوسُ ٱلْعِصِيِّ مِنَ ٱلْقُدْسِ أَمَامَ ٱلْمِحْرَابِ وَلَمْ تُرَ خَارِجًا، وَهِيَ هُنَاكَ إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ.٨8
And the holy staves projected, and the ends of the holy staves appeared out of the holy places in front of the oracle, and were not seen without.
لَمْ يَكُنْ فِي ٱلتَّابُوتِ إِلَّا لَوْحَا ٱلْحَجَرِ ٱللَّذَانِ وَضَعَهُمَا مُوسَى هُنَاكَ فِي حُورِيبَ حِينَ عَاهَدَ ٱلرَّبُّ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ عِنْدَ خُرُوجِهِمْ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ.٩9
There was nothing in the ark except the two tables of stone, the tables of the covenant which Moses put [there] in Choreb, which [tables] the Lord made [as a covenant] with the children of Israel in their going forth from the land of Egypt.
وَكَانَ لَمَّا خَرَجَ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ مِنَ ٱلْقُدْسِ أَنَّ ٱلسَّحَابَ مَلَأَ بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ،١٠10
And it came to pass when the priests departed out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house.
وَلَمْ يَسْتَطِعِ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ أَنْ يَقِفُوا لِلْخِدْمَةِ بِسَبَبِ ٱلسَّحَابِ، لِأَنَّ مَجْدَ ٱلرَّبِّ مَلَأَ بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ.١١11
And the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, because the glory of the Lord filled the house.
حِينَئِذٍ تَكَلَّمَ سُلَيْمَانُ: «قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِنَّهُ يَسْكُنُ فِي ٱلضَّبَابِ.١٢12
إِنِّي قَدْ بَنَيْتُ لَكَ بَيْتَ سُكْنَى، مَكَانًا لِسُكْنَاكَ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ».١٣13
وَحَوَّلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَجْهَهُ وَبَارَكَ كُلَّ جُمْهُورِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَكُلُّ جُمْهُورِ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَاقِفٌ.١٤14
And the king turned his face, and the king blessed all Israel, (and the whole assembly of Israel stood: )
وَقَالَ: «مُبَارَكٌ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِفَمِهِ إِلَى دَاوُدَ أَبِي وَأَكْمَلَ بِيَدِهِ قَائِلًا:١٥15
and he said, Blessed [be] the Lord God of Israel today, who spoke by his mouth concerning David my father, and has fulfilled it with his hands, saying,
مُنْذُ يَوْمَ أَخْرَجْتُ شَعْبِي إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ مِصْرَ لَمْ أَخْتَرْ مَدِينَةً مِنْ جَمِيعِ أَسْبَاطِ إِسْرَائِيلَ لِبِنَاءِ بَيْتٍ لِيَكُونَ ٱسْمِي هُنَاكَ، بَلِ إِنَّمَا ٱخْتَرْتُ دَاوُدَ لِيَكُونَ عَلَى شَعْبِي إِسْرَائِيلَ.١٦16
From the day that I brought out my people Israel out of Egypt, I have not chosen a city in [any] one tribe of Israel to build a house, so that my name should be there: but I chose Jerusalem that my name should be there, and I chose David to be over my people Israel.
وَكَانَ فِي قَلْبِ دَاوُدَ أَبِي أَنْ يَبْنِيَ بَيْتًا لِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ.١٧17
And it was in the heart of my father to build a house to the name of the Lord God of Israel.
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِدَاوُدَ أَبِي: مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّهُ كَانَ فِي قَلْبِكَ أَنْ تَبْنِيَ بَيْتًا لِٱسْمِي، قَدْ أَحْسَنْتَ بِكَوْنِهِ فِي قَلْبِكَ.١٨18
And the Lord said to David my father, Forasmuch as it came into your heart to build a house to my name, you did well that it came upon your heart.
إِلَّا إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ لَا تَبْنِي ٱلْبَيْتَ، بَلِ ٱبْنُكَ ٱلْخَارِجُ مِنْ صُلْبِكَ هُوَ يَبْنِي ٱلْبَيْتَ لِٱسْمِي.١٩19
Nevertheless you shall not build the house, but your son that has proceeded out of your bowels, he shall build the house to my name.
وَأَقَامَ ٱلرَّبُّ كَلَامَهُ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ، وَقَدْ قُمْتُ أَنَا مَكَانَ دَاوُدَ أَبِي وَجَلَسْتُ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّ إِسْرَائِيلَ كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ، وَبَنَيْتُ ٱلْبَيْتَ لِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ،٢٠20
And the Lord has confirmed the word that he spoke, and I am risen up in the place of my father David, and I have sat down on the throne of Israel, as the Lord spoke, and I have built the house to the name of the Lord God of Israel.
وَجَعَلْتُ هُنَاكَ مَكَانًا لِلتَّابُوتِ ٱلَّذِي فِيهِ عَهْدُ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّذِي قَطَعَهُ مَعَ آبَائِنَا عِنْدَ إِخْرَاجِهِ إِيَّاهُمْ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ».٢١21
And I have set there a place for the ark, in which is the covenant of the Lord, which the Lord made with our fathers, when he brought them out of the land of Egypt.
وَوَقَفَ سُلَيْمَانُ أَمَامَ مَذْبَحِ ٱلرَّبِّ تُجَاهَ كُلِّ جَمَاعَةِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَبَسَطَ يَدَيْهِ إِلَى ٱلسَّمَاءِ٢٢22
And Solomon stood up in front of the altar before all the congregation of Israel; and he spread out his hands toward heaven:
وَقَالَ: «أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ، لَيْسَ إِلَهٌ مِثْلَكَ فِي ٱلسَّمَاءِ مِنْ فَوْقُ، وَلَا عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ مِنْ أَسْفَلُ، حَافِظُ ٱلْعَهْدِ وَٱلرَّحْمَةِ لِعَبِيدِكَ ٱلسَّائِرِينَ أَمَامَكَ بِكُلِّ قُلُوبِهِمْ.٢٣23
and he said, Lord God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven above and on the earth beneath, keeping covenant and mercy with your servant who walks before you with all his heart;
ٱلَّذِي قَدْ حَفِظْتَ لِعَبْدِكَ دَاوُدَ أَبِي مَا كَلَّمْتَهُ بِهِ، فَتَكَلَّمْتَ بِفَمِكَ وَأَكْمَلْتَ بِيَدِكَ كَهَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ.٢٤24
which you have kept toward your servant David my father: for you have spoken by your mouth and you have fulfilled it with your hands, as [at] this day.
وَٱلْآنَ أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱحْفَظْ لِعَبْدِكَ دَاوُدَ أَبِي مَا كَلَّمْتَهُ بِهِ قَائِلًا: لَا يُعْدَمُ لَكَ أَمَامِي رَجُلٌ يَجْلِسُ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّ إِسْرَائِيلَ، إِنْ كَانَ بَنُوكَ إِنَّماَ يَحْفَظُونَ طُرُقَهُمْ حَتَّى يَسِيرُوا أَمَامِي كَمَا سِرْتَ أَنْتَ أَمَامِي.٢٥25
And now, O Lord God of Israel, keep for your servant David my father, [the promises] which you have spoken to him, saying, There shall not be taken from you a man sitting before me on the throne of Israel, provided only your children shall take heed to their ways, to walk before me as you have walked before me.
وَٱلْآنَ يَا إِلَهَ إِسْرَائِيلَ فَلْيَتَحَقَّقْ كَلَامُكَ ٱلَّذِي كَلَّمْتَ بِهِ عَبْدَكَ دَاوُدَ أَبِي.٢٦26
And now, O Lord God of Israel, let, I pray you, your word to David my father be confirmed.
لِأَنَّهُ هَلْ يَسْكُنُ ٱللهُ حَقًّا عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ؟ هُوَذَا ٱلسَّمَاوَاتُ وَسَمَاءُ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ لَا تَسَعُكَ، فَكَمْ بِٱلْأَقَلِّ هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتُ ٱلَّذِي بَنَيْتُ؟٢٧27
But will God indeed dwell with men upon the earth? if the heaven and heaven of heavens will not suffice you, how much less even this house which I have built to your name?
فَٱلْتَفِتْ إِلَى صَلَاةِ عَبْدِكَ وَإِلَى تَضَرُّعِهِ أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهِي، وَٱسْمَعِ ٱلصُّرَاخَ وَٱلصَّلَاةَ ٱلَّتِي يُصَلِّيهَا عَبْدُكَ أَمَامَكَ ٱلْيَوْمَ.٢٨28
Yet, O Lord God of Israel, you shall look upon my petition, to hear the prayer which your servant prays to you in your presence this day,
لِتَكُونَ عَيْنَاكَ مَفْتُوحَتَيْنِ عَلَى هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتِ لَيْلًا وَنَهَارًا، عَلَى ٱلْمَوْضِعِ ٱلَّذِي قُلْتَ: إِنَّ ٱسْمِي يَكُونُ فِيهِ، لِتَسْمَعَ ٱلصَّلَاةَ ٱلَّتِي يُصَلِّيهَا عَبْدُكَ فِي هَذَا ٱلْمَوْضِعِ.٢٩29
that your eyes may be open toward this house day and night, even toward the place which you said, My name shall be there, to hear the prayer which your servant prays at this place day and night.
وَٱسْمَعْ تَضَرُّعَ عَبْدِكَ وَشَعْبِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلَّذِينَ يُصَلُّونَ فِي هَذَا ٱلْمَوْضِعِ، وَٱسْمَعْ أَنْتَ فِي مَوْضِعِ سُكْنَاكَ فِي ٱلسَّمَاءِ، وَإِذَا سَمِعْتَ فَٱغْفِرْ.٣٠30
And you shall listen to the prayer of your servant, and of your people Israel, which they shall pray toward this place; and you shall hear in your dwelling-place in heaven, and you shall do and be gracious.
إِذَا أَخْطَأَ أَحَدٌ إِلَى صَاحِبِهِ وَوَضَعَ عَلَيْهِ حَلْفًا لِيُحَلِّفَهُ، وَجَاءَ ٱلْحَلْفُ أَمَامَ مَذْبَحِكَ فِي هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتِ،٣١31
Whatsoever trespasses any [one] shall commit against his neighbor, —and if he shall take upon him an oath so that he should swear, and he shall come and make confession before your altar in this house,
فَٱسْمَعْ أَنْتَ فِي ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَٱعْمَلْ وَٱقْضِ بَيْنَ عَبِيدِكَ، إِذْ تَحْكُمُ عَلَى ٱلْمُذْنِبِ فَتَجْعَلُ طَرِيقَهُ عَلَى رَأْسِهِ، وَتُبَرِّرُ ٱلْبَارَّ إِذْ تُعْطِيهِ حَسَبَ بِرِّهِ.٣٢32
then shall you hear from heaven, and do, and you shall judge your people Israel, that the wicked should be condemned, to recompense his way upon his head; and to justify the righteous, to give to him according to his righteousness.
إِذَا ٱنْكَسَرَ شَعْبُكَ إِسْرَائِيلُ أَمَامَ ٱلْعَدُوِّ لِأَنَّهُمْ أَخْطَأُوا إِلَيْكَ، ثُمَّ رَجَعُوا إِلَيْكَ وَٱعْتَرَفُوا بِٱسْمِكَ وَصَلَّوْا وَتَضَرَّعُوا إِلَيْكَ نَحْوَ هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتِ،٣٣33
When your people Israel falls before enemies, because they shall sin against you, and they shall return and confess to your name, and they shall pray and supplicate in this house,
فَٱسْمَعْ أَنْتَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَٱغْفِرْ خَطِيَّةَ شَعْبِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَأَرْجِعْهُمْ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَيْتَهَا لِآبَائِهِمْ.٣٤34
then shall you hear from heaven, and be gracious to the sins of your people Israel, and you shall restore them to the land which you gave to their fathers.
«إِذَا أُغْلِقَتِ ٱلسَّمَاءُ وَلَمْ يَكُنْ مَطَرٌ، لِأَنَّهُمْ أَخْطَأُوا إِلَيْكَ، ثُمَّ صَلَّوْا فِي هَذَا ٱلْمَوْضِعِ وَٱعْتَرَفُوا بِٱسْمِكَ، وَرَجَعُوا عَنْ خَطِيَّتِهِمْ لِأَنَّكَ ضَايَقْتَهُمْ،٣٥35
When the heaven is restrained, and there is no rain, because they shall sin against you, and the shall pray toward this place, and they shall make confession to your name, and shall turn from their sins when you shall have humbled them,
فَٱسْمَعْ أَنْتَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَٱغْفِرْ خَطِيَّةَ عَبِيدِكَ وَشَعْبِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، فَتُعَلِّمَهُمُ ٱلطَّرِيقَ ٱلصَّالِحَ ٱلَّذِي يَسْلُكُونَ فِيهِ، وَأَعْطِ مَطَرًا عَلَى أَرْضِكَ ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَيْتَهَا لِشَعْبِكَ مِيرَاثًا.٣٦36
then you shall hear from heaven, and be merciful to the sins of your servant and of your people Israel; for you shall show them the good way to walk in it, and you shall give rain upon the earth which you have given to your people for an inheritance.
إِذَا صَارَ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ جُوعٌ، إِذَا صَارَ وَبَأٌ، إِذَا صَارَ لَفْحٌ أَوْ يَرَقَانٌ أَوْ جَرَادٌ جَرْدَمٌ، أَوْ إِذَا حَاصَرَهُ عَدُوُّهُ فِي أَرْضِ مُدُنِهِ، فِي كُلِّ ضَرْبَةٍ وَكُلِّ مَرَضٍ،٣٧37
If there should be famine, if there should be death, because there should be blasting, locust, or if there be mildew, and if their enemy oppress them in [any] one of their cities, [with regard to] every calamity, every trouble,
فَكُلُّ صَلَاةٍ وَكُلُّ تَضَرُّعٍ تَكُونُ مِنْ أَيِّ إِنْسَانٍ كَانَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَعْبِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، ٱلَّذِينَ يَعْرِفُونَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ ضَرْبَةَ قَلْبِهِ، فَيَبْسُطُ يَدَيْهِ نَحْوَ هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتِ،٣٨38
every prayer, every supplication whatever shall be made by any man, as they shall know each the plague of his heart, and shall spread abroad his hands to this house,
فَٱسْمَعْ أَنْتَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ مَكَانِ سُكْنَاكَ وَٱغْفِرْ، وَٱعْمَلْ وَأَعْطِ كُلَّ إِنْسَانٍ حَسَبَ كُلِّ طُرُقِهِ كَمَا تَعْرِفُ قَلْبَهُ. لِأَنَّكَ أَنْتَ وَحْدَكَ قَدْ عَرَفْتَ قُلُوبَ كُلِّ بَنِي ٱلْبَشَرِ،٣٩39
then shall you listen from heaven, out of your established dwelling-place, and shall be merciful, and shall do, and recompense to [every] man according to his ways, as you shall know his heart, for you alone know the heart of all the children of men:
لِكَيْ يَخَافُوكَ كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ ٱلَّتِي يَحْيَوْنَ فِيهَا عَلَى وَجْهِ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَيْتَ لِآبَائِنَا.٤٠40
that they may fear you all the days that they live upon the land, which you have given to our fathers.
وَكَذَلِكَ ٱلْأَجْنَبِيُّ ٱلَّذِي لَيْسَ مِنْ شَعْبِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ هُوَ، وَجَاءَ مِنْ أَرْضٍ بَعِيدَةٍ مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱسْمِكَ،٤١41
And for the stranger who is not of your people,
لِأَنَّهُمْ يَسْمَعُونَ بِٱسْمِكَ ٱلْعَظِيمِ وَبِيَدِكَ ٱلْقَوِيَّةِ وَذِرَاعِكَ ٱلْمَمْدُودَةِ، فَمَتَى جَاءَ وَصَلَّى فِي هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتِ،٤٢42
when they shall come and pray toward this place,
فَٱسْمَعْ أَنْتَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ مَكَانِ سُكْنَاكَ، وَٱفْعَلْ حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا يَدْعُو بِهِ إِلَيْكَ ٱلْأَجْنَبِيُّ، لِكَيْ يَعْلَمَ كُلُّ شُعُوبِ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱسْمَكَ، فَيَخَافُوكَ كَشَعْبِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَلِكَيْ يَعْلَمُوا أَنَّهُ قَدْ دُعِيَ ٱسْمُكَ عَلَى هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتِ ٱلَّذِي بَنَيْتُ.٤٣43
then shall you hear [them] from heaven, out of your established dwelling-place, and you shall do according to all that the stranger shall call upon you for, that all the nations may know your name, and fear you, as [do] your people Israel, and may know that your name has been called on this house which I have builded.
«إِذَا خَرَجَ شَعْبُكَ لِمُحَارَبَةِ عَدُوِّهِ فِي ٱلطَّرِيقِ ٱلَّذِي تُرْسِلُهُمْ فِيهِ، وَصَلَّوْا إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ نَحْوَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ ٱلَّتِي ٱخْتَرْتَهَا وَٱلْبَيْتِ ٱلَّذِي بَنَيْتُهُ لِٱسْمِكَ،٤٤44
[If it be] that your people shall go forth to war against their enemies in the way by which you shall turn them, and pray in the name of the Lord toward the city which you have chosen, and the house which I have built to your name,
فَٱسْمَعْ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ صَلَاتَهُمْ وَتَضَرُّعَهُمْ وَٱقْضِ قَضَاءَهُمْ.٤٥45
then shall you hear from heaven their supplication and their prayer, and shall execute judgment for them.
إِذَا أَخْطَأُوا إِلَيْكَ، لِأَنَّهُ لَيْسَ إِنْسَانٌ لَا يُخْطِئُ، وَغَضِبْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ وَدَفَعْتَهُمْ أَمَامَ ٱلْعَدُوِّ وَسَبَاهُمْ، سَابُوهُمْ إِلَى أَرْضِ ٱلْعَدُوِّ، بَعِيدَةً أَوْ قَرِيبَةً،٤٦46
[If it be] that they shall sin against you, (for there is not a man who will not sin, ) and you shall bring them and deliver them up before their enemies, and they that take [them] captive shall carry [them] to a land far or near,
فَإِذَا رَدُّوا إِلَى قُلُوبِهِمْ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي يُسْبَوْنَ إِلَيْهَا وَرَجَعُوا وَتَضَرَّعُوا إِلَيْكَ فِي أَرْضِ سَبْيِهِمْ قَائِلِينَ: قَدْ أَخْطَأْنَا وَعَوَّجْنَا وَأَذْنَبْنَا.٤٧47
and they shall turn their hearts in the land whither they have been carried captives, and turn in the land of their sojourning, and supplicate you, saying, We have sinned, we have done unjustly, we have transgressed,
وَرَجَعُوا إِلَيْكَ مِنْ كُلِّ قُلُوبِهِمْ وَمِنْ كُلِّ أَنْفُسِهِمْ فِي أَرْضِ أَعْدَائِهِمْ ٱلَّذِينَ سَبَوْهُمْ، وَصَلَّوْا إِلَيْكَ نَحْوَ أَرْضِهِمْ ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَيْتَ لِآبَائِهِمْ، نَحْوَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ ٱلَّتِي ٱخْتَرْتَ وَٱلْبَيْتِ ٱلَّذِي بَنَيْتُ لِٱسْمِكَ،٤٨48
and they shall turn to you with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies whither you have carried them captives, and shall pray to you toward their land which you have given to their fathers, and the city which you have chosen, and the house which I have built to your name:
فَٱسْمَعْ فِي ٱلسَّمَاءِ مَكَانِ سُكْنَاكَ صَلَاتَهُمْ وَتَضَرُّعَهُمْ وَٱقْضِ قَضَاءَهُمْ،٤٩49
then shall you hear from heaven your established dwelling-place,
وَٱغْفِرْ لِشَعْبِكَ مَا أَخْطَأُوا بِهِ إِلَيْكَ، وَجَمِيعَ ذُنُوبِهِمِ ٱلَّتِي أَذْنَبُوا بِهَا إِلَيْكَ، وَأَعْطِهِمْ رَحْمَةً أَمَامَ ٱلَّذِينَ سَبَوْهُمْ فَيَرْحَمُوهُمْ،٥٠50
and you shall be merciful to their unrighteousness wherein they have trespassed against you, and according to all their transgressions wherewith they have transgressed against you, and you shall cause them to be pitied before them that carried them captives, and they shall have compassion on them:
لِأَنَّهُمْ شَعْبُكَ وَمِيرَاثُكَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَخْرَجْتَ مِنْ مِصْرَ، مِنْ وَسَطِ كُورِ ٱلْحَدِيدِ.٥١51
for [they are] your people and your inheritance, whom you brought out of the land of Egypt, out of the midst of the furnace of iron.
لِتَكُونَ عَيْنَاكَ مَفْتُوحَتَيْنِ نَحْوَ تَضَرُّعِ عَبْدِكَ وَتَضَرُّعِ شَعْبِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، فَتُصْغِيَ إِلَيْهِمْ فِي كُلِّ مَا يَدْعُونَكَ،٥٢52
And let your eyes and your ears be opened to the supplication of your servant, and to the supplication of your people Israel, to listen to them in all things for which they shall call upon you.
لِأَنَّكَ أَنْتَ أَفْرَزْتَهُمْ لَكَ مِيرَاثًا مِنْ جَمِيعِ شُعُوبِ ٱلْأَرْضِ، كَمَا تَكَلَّمْتَ عَنْ يَدِ مُوسَى عَبْدِكَ عِنْدَ إِخْرَاجِكَ آبَاءَنَا مِنْ مِصْرَ يَاسَيِّدِي ٱلرَّبَّ».٥٣53
Because you have set them apart for an inheritance to yourself out of all the nations of the earth, as you spoke by the hand of your servant Moses, when you brought our fathers out of the land of Egypt, O Lord God.
وَكَانَ لَمَّا ٱنْتَهَى سُلَيْمَانُ مِنَ ٱلصَّلَاةِ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ بِكُلِّ هَذِهِ ٱلصَّلَاةِ وَٱلتَّضَرُّعِ، أَنَّهُ نَهَضَ مِنْ أَمَامِ مَذْبَحِ ٱلرَّبِّ، مِنَ ٱلْجُثُوِّ عَلَى رُكْبَتَيْهِ، وَيَدَاهُ مَبْسُوطَتَانِ نَحْوَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ،٥٤54
And it came to pass when Solomon had finished praying to the Lord all this prayer and supplication, that he rose up from before the altar of the Lord, [after] having knelt upon his knees, and his hands [were] spread out towards heaven.
وَوَقَفَ وَبَارَكَ كُلَّ جَمَاعَةِ إِسْرَائِيلَ بِصَوْتٍ عَالٍ قَائِلًا:٥٥55
And he stood, and blessed all the congregation of Israel with a loud voice, saying,
«مُبَارَكٌ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلَّذِي أَعْطَى رَاحَةً لِشَعْبِهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ، وَلَمْ تَسْقُطْ كَلِمَةٌ وَاحِدَةٌ مِنْ كُلِّ كَلَامِهِ ٱلصَّالِحِ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ عَنْ يَدِ مُوسَى عَبْدِهِ.٥٦56
Blessed [be] the Lord this day, who has given rest to his people Israel, according to all that he said: there has not failed one word among all his good words which he spoke by the hand of his servant Moses.
لِيَكُنِ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُنَا مَعَنَا كَمَا كَانَ مَعَ آبَائِنَا فَلَا يَتْرُكَنَا وَلَا يَرْفُضَنَا.٥٧57
May the Lord our God be with us, as he was with our fathers; let him not desert us nor turn from us,
لِيَمِيلَ بِقُلُوبِنَا إِلَيْهِ لِكَيْ نَسِيرَ فِي جَمِيعِ طُرُقِهِ وَنَحْفَظَ وَصَايَاهُ وَفَرَائِضَهُ وَأَحْكَامَهُ ٱلَّتِي أَوْصَى بِهَا آبَاءَنَا.٥٨58
that he may turn our hearts toward him to walk in all his ways, and to keep all his commandments, and his ordinances which he commanded our fathers.
وَلِيَكُنْ كَلَامِي هَذَا ٱلَّذِي تَضَرَّعْتُ بِهِ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ قَرِيبًا مِنَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِنَا نَهَارًا وَلَيْلًا، لِيَقْضِيَ قَضَاءَ عَبْدِهِ وَقَضَاءَ شَعْبِهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، أَمْرَ كُلِّ يَوْمٍ فِي يَوْمِهِ.٥٩59
And let these words, which I have prayed before the Lord our God, [be] near to the Lord our God day and night, to maintain the cause of your servant, and the cause of your people Israel for ever.
لِيَعْلَمَ كُلُّ شُعُوبِ ٱلْأَرْضِ أَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ هُوَ ٱللهُ وَلَيْسَ آخَرُ.٦٠60
that all the nations of the earth may know that the Lord God, he [is] God, and there is none beside.
فَلْيَكُنْ قَلْبُكُمْ كَامِلًا لَدَى ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِنَا إِذْ تَسِيرُونَ فِي فَرَائِضِهِ وَتَحْفَظُونَ وَصَايَاهُ كَهَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ».٦١61
And let our hearts be perfect toward the Lord our God, to walk also holily in his ordinances, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.
ثُمَّ إِنَّ ٱلْمَلِكَ وَجَمِيعَ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَعَهُ ذَبَحُوا ذَبَائِحَ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ،٦٢62
And the king and all the children of Israel offered sacrifice before the Lord.
وَذَبَحَ سُلَيْمَانُ ذَبَائِحَ ٱلسَّلَامَةِ ٱلَّتِي ذَبَحَهَا لِلرَّبِّ: مِنَ ٱلْبَقَرِ ٱثْنَيْنِ وَعِشْرِينَ أَلْفًا، وَمِنَ ٱلْغَنَمِ مِئَةَ أَلْفٍ وَعِشْرِينَ أَلْفًا، فَدَشَّنَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَجَمِيعُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ.٦٣63
And king Solomon offered for the sacrifices of peace-offering which he sacrificed to the Lord, two and twenty thousand oxen, and hundred and twenty thousand sheep: and the king and all the children of Israel dedicated the house of the Lord.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ قَدَّسَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَسَطَ ٱلدَّارِ ٱلَّتِي أَمَامَ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ، لِأَنَّهُ قَرَّبَ هُنَاكَ ٱلْمُحْرَقَاتِ وَٱلتَّقْدِمَاتِ وَشَحْمَ ذَبَائِحِ ٱلسَّلَامَةِ، لِأَنَّ مَذْبَحَ ٱلنُّحَاسِ ٱلَّذِي أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ كَانَ صَغِيرًا عَنْ أَنْ يَسَعَ ٱلْمُحْرَقَاتِ وَٱلتَّقْدِمَاتِ وَشَحْمَ ذَبَائِحِ ٱلسَّلَامَةِ.٦٤64
In that day the king consecrated the middle of the court in the front of the house of the Lord; for there he offered the whole burnt offering, and the sacrifices, and the fat of the peace-offerings, because the brazen altar which was before the Lord [was too] little to bear the whole burnt offering and the sacrifices of peace-offerings.
وَعَيَّدَ سُلَيْمَانُ ٱلْعِيدَ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْوَقْتِ وَجَمِيعُ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَعَهُ، جُمْهُورٌ كَبِيرٌ مِنْ مَدْخَلِ حَمَاةَ إِلَى وَادِي مِصْرَ، أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِنَا سَبْعَةَ أَيَّامٍ وَسَبْعَةَ أَيَّامٍ، أَرْبَعَةَ عَشَرَ يَوْمًا.٦٥65
And Solomon kept the feast in that day, and all Israel with him, even a great assembly from the entering in of Hemath to the river of Egypt, before the Lord our God in the house which he built, eating and drinking, and rejoicing before the Lord our God seven days.
وَفِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلثَّامِنِ صَرَفَ ٱلشَّعْبَ، فَبَارَكُوا ٱلْمَلِكَ وَذَهَبُوا إِلَى خِيَمِهِمْ فَرِحِينَ وَطَيِّبِي ٱلْقُلُوبِ، لِأَجْلِ كُلِّ ٱلْخَيْرِ ٱلَّذِي عَمِلَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِدَاوُدَ عَبْدِهِ وَلِإِسْرَائِيلَ شَعْبِهِ.٦٦66
And on the eighth day he sent away the people: and they blessed the king, and each departed to his tabernacle rejoicing, and [their] heart [was] glad because of the good things which the Lord had done to his servant David, and to Israel his people.
