1 صموئيل 10

فَأَخَذَ صَمُوئِيلُ قِنِّينَةَ ٱلدُّهْنِ وَصَبَّ عَلَى رَأْسِهِ وَقَبَّلَهُ وَقَالَ: «أَلَيْسَ لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ قَدْ مَسَحَكَ عَلَى مِيرَاثِهِ رَئِيسًا؟ ١ 1
And Samuel took a vial of oil, and poured [it] on his head, and kissed him, and said to him, Has not the Lord anointed you for a ruler over his people, over Israel? and you shall rule among the people of the Lord, and you shall save them out of the hand of their enemies; and this [shall be] the sign to you that the Lord has anointed you for a ruler over his inheritance.
فِي ذَهَابِكَ ٱلْيَوْمَ مِنْ عِنْدِي تُصَادِفُ رَجُلَيْنِ عِنْدَ قَبْرِ رَاحِيلَ، فِي تُخْمِ بَنْيَامِينَ فِي صَلْصَحَ، فَيَقُولَانِ لَكَ: قَدْ وُجِدَتِ ٱلْأُتُنُ، ٱلَّتِي ذَهَبْتَ تُفَتِّشُ عَلَيْهَا، وَهُوَذَا أَبُوكَ قَدْ تَرَكَ أَمْرَ ٱلْأُتُنِ وَٱهْتَمَّ بِكُمَا قَائِلًا: مَاذَا أَصْنَعُ لِٱبْنِي؟ ٢ 2
[As soon] as you shall have departed this day from me, you shall find two men by the burial-place of Rachel on the mount of Benjamin, exulting greatly; and they shall say to you, The asses are found which you went to seek; and, behold, your father has given up the matter of the asses, and he is anxious for you, saying, What shall I do for my son?
وَتَعْدُو مِنْ هُنَاكَ ذَاهِبًا حَتَّى تَأْتِيَ إِلَى بَلُّوطَةِ تَابُورَ، فَيُصَادِفُكَ هُنَاكَ ثَلَاثَةُ رِجَالٍ صَاعِدُونَ إِلَى ٱللهِ إِلَى بَيْتِ إِيلٍ، وَاحِدٌ حَامِلٌ ثَلَاثَةَ جِدَاءٍ، وَوَاحِدٌ حَامِلٌ ثَلَاثَةَ أَرْغِفَةِ خُبْزٍ، وَوَاحِدٌ حَامِلٌ زِقَّ خَمْرٍ. ٣ 3
And you shall depart thence, and shall go beyond that as far as the oak of Thabor, and you shall find there three men going up to God to Baethel, one bearing three kids, and another bearing three vessels of bread, and another bearing a bottle of wine.
فَيُسَلِّمُونَ عَلَيْكَ وَيُعْطُونَكَ رَغِيفَيْ خُبْزٍ، فَتَأْخُذُ مِنْ يَدِهِمْ. ٤ 4
And they shall ask you how you do, and shall give you two presents of bread, and you shall receive them of their hand.
بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ تَأْتِي إِلَى جِبْعَةِ ٱللهِ حَيْثُ أَنْصَابُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ. وَيَكُونُ عِنْدَ مَجِيئِكَ إِلَى هُنَاكَ إِلَى ٱلْمَدِينَةِ أَنَّكَ تُصَادِفُ زُمْرَةً مِنَ ٱلْأَنْبِيَاءِ نَازِلِينَ مِنَ ٱلْمُرْتَفَعَةِ وَأَمَامَهُمْ رَبَابٌ وَدُفٌّ وَنَايٌ وَعُودٌ وَهُمْ يَتَنَبَّأُونَ. ٥ 5
And afterward you shall go to the hill of God, where is the encampment of the Philistines; there [is] Nasib the Philistine: an it shall come to pass when you shall have entered into the city, that you shall meet a band of prophets coming down from the Bama; and before them will be lutes, and a drum, and a pipe, and a harp, and they shall prophesy.
فَيَحِلُّ عَلَيْكَ رُوحُ ٱلرَّبِّ فَتَتَنَبَّأُ مَعَهُمْ وَتَتَحَوَّلُ إِلَى رَجُلٍ آخَرَ. ٦ 6
And the Spirit of the Lord shall come upon you, and you shall prophesy with them, and shall be turned into another man.
وَإِذَا أَتَتْ هَذِهِ ٱلْآيَاتُ عَلَيْكَ، فَٱفْعَلْ مَا وَجَدَتْهُ يَدُكَ، لِأَنَّ ٱللهَ مَعَكَ. ٧ 7
And it shall come to pass when these signs shall come upon you, —[then] do you whatever your hand shall find, because God [is] with you.
وَتَنْزِلُ قُدَّامِي إِلَى ٱلْجِلْجَالِ، وَهُوَذَا أَنَا أَنْزِلُ إِلَيْكَ لِأُصْعِدَ مُحْرَقَاتٍ وَأَذْبَحَ ذَبَائِحَ سَلَامَةٍ. سَبْعَةَ أَيَّامٍ تَلْبَثُ حَتَّى آتِيَ إِلَيْكَ وَأُعَلِّمَكَ مَاذَا تَفْعَلُ». ٨ 8
And you shall go down in front of Galgal, and behold, I come down to you to offer a whole burnt offering and peace-offerings: seven days shall you wait until I shall come to you, and I will make known to you what you shall do.
وَكَانَ عِنْدَمَا أَدَارَ كَتِفَهُ لِكَيْ يَذْهَبَ مِنْ عِنْدِ صَمُوئِيلَ أَنَّ ٱللهَ أَعْطَاهُ قَلْبًا آخَرَ، وَأَتَتْ جَمِيعُ هَذِهِ ٱلْآيَاتِ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ. ٩ 9
And it came to pass when he turned his back to depart from Samuel, God gave him another heart; and all these signs came to pass in that day.
وَلَمَّا جَاءُوا إِلَى هُنَاكَ إِلَى جِبْعَةَ، إِذَا بِزُمْرَةٍ مِنَ ٱلْأَنْبِيَاءِ لَقِيَتْهُ، فَحَلَّ عَلَيْهِ رُوحُ ٱللهِ فَتَنَبَّأَ فِي وَسَطِهِمْ. ١٠ 10
And he comes thence to the hill, and behold a band of prophets opposite to him; and the Spirit of God came upon him, and he prophesied in the midst of them.
وَلَمَّا رَآهُ جَمِيعُ ٱلَّذِينَ عَرَفُوهُ مُنْذُ أَمْسِ وَمَا قَبْلَهُ أَنَّهُ يَتَنَبَّأُ مَعَ ٱلْأَنْبِيَاءِ، قَالَ ٱلشَّعْبُ، ٱلْوَاحِدُ لِصَاحِبِهِ: «مَاذَا صَارَ لِٱبْنِ قَيْسٍ؟ أَشَاوُلُ أَيْضًا بَيْنَ ٱلْأَنْبِيَاءِ؟» ١١ 11
And all that had known him before came, and saw, and behold, he [was] in the midst of the prophets: and the people said every one to his neighbor, What [is] this that has happened to the son of Kis? [is] Saul also among the prophets?
فَأَجَابَ رَجُلٌ مِنْ هُنَاكَ وَقَالَ: «وَمَنْ هُوَ أَبُوهُمْ؟». وَلِذَلِكَ ذَهَبَ مَثَلًا: «أَشَاوُلُ أَيْضًا بَيْنَ ٱلْأَنْبِيَاءِ؟». ١٢ 12
And one of them answered and said, And who [is] his father? and therefore it became a proverb, [Is] Saul also among the prophets?
وَلَمَّا ٱنْتَهَى مِنَ ٱلتَّنَبِّي جَاءَ إِلَى ٱلْمُرْتَفَعَةِ. ١٣ 13
And he ceased prophesying, and comes to the hill.
فَقَالَ عَمُّ شَاوُلَ لَهُ وَلِغُلَامِهِ: «إِلَى أَيْنَ ذَهَبْتُمَا؟» فَقَالَ: «لِكَيْ نُفَتِّشَ عَلَى ٱلْأُتُنِ. وَلَمَّا رَأَيْنَا أَنَّهَا لَمْ تُوجَدْ جِئْنَا إِلَى صَمُوئِيلَ». ١٤ 14
And his kinsman said to him and to his servant, Whither went you? and they said, To seek the asses; and we saw that they were lost, and we went in to Samuel.
فَقَالَ عَمُّ شَاوُلَ: «أَخْبِرْنِي مَاذَا قَالَ لَكُمَا صَمُوئِيلُ؟». ١٥ 15
And his kinsman said to Saul, Tell me, I pray you, What did Samuel say to you?
فَقَالَ شَاوُلُ لِعَمِّهِ: «أَخْبَرَنَا بِأَنَّ ٱلْأُتُنَ قَدْ وُجِدَتْ». وَلَكِنَّهُ لَمْ يُخْبِرْهُ بِأَمْرِ ٱلْمَمْلَكَةِ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ صَمُوئِيلُ. ١٦ 16
And Saul said to his kinsman, he verily told me that the asses were found. But the matter of the kingdom he told him not.
وَٱسْتَدْعَى صَمُوئِيلُ ٱلشَّعْبَ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى ٱلْمِصْفَاةِ، ١٧ 17
And Samuel summoned all the people before the Lord to Massephath.
وَقَالَ لِبَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ: «هَكَذَا يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ: إِنِّي أَصْعَدْتُ إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ مِصْرَ وَأَنْقَذْتُكُمْ مِنْ يَدِ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّينَ وَمِنْ يَدِ جَمِيعِ ٱلْمَمَالِكِ ٱلَّتِي ضَايَقَتْكُمْ. ١٨ 18
And he said to the children of Israel, Thus has the Lord God of Israel spoken, saying, I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt, and I rescued you out of the hand of Pharao king of Egypt, and out of all the kingdoms that afflicted you.
وَأَنْتُمْ قَدْ رَفَضْتُمُ ٱلْيَوْمَ إِلَهَكُمُ ٱلَّذِي هُوَ مُخَلِّصُكُمْ مِنْ جَمِيعِ ٱلَّذِينَ يُسِيئُونَ إِلَيْكُمْ وَيُضَايِقُونَكُمْ، وَقُلْتُمْ لَهُ: بَلْ تَجْعَلُ عَلَيْنَا مَلِكًا. فَٱلْآنَ ٱمْثُلُوا أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ حَسَبَ أَسْبَاطِكُمْ وَأُلُوفِكُمْ». ١٩ 19
And you have this day rejected God, who is himself your Deliverer out of all your evils and afflictions; and you said, Nay, but you shall set a king over us: and now stand before the Lord according to your tribes, and according to your families.
فَقَدَّمَ صَمُوئِيلُ جَمِيعَ أَسْبَاطِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، فَأُخِذَ سِبْطُ بَنْيَامِينَ. ٢٠ 20
And Samuel brought near all the tribes of Israel, and the tribe of Benjamin is taken by lot.
ثُمَّ قَدَّمَ سِبْطَ بَنْيَامِينَ حَسَبَ عَشَائِرِهِ، فَأُخِذَتْ عَشِيرَةُ مَطْرِي، وَأُخِذَ شَاوُلُ بْنُ قَيْسَ. فَفَتَّشُوا عَلَيْهِ فَلَمْ يُوجَدْ. ٢١ 21
And he brings near the tribe of Benjamin by families, and the family of Mattari is taken by lot: and they bring near the family of Mattari, man by man, and Saul the son of Kis is taken; and he sought him, but he was not found.
فَسَأَلُوا أَيْضًا مِنَ ٱلرَّبِّ: «هَلْ يَأْتِي ٱلرَّجُلُ أَيْضًا إِلَى هُنَا؟» فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «هُوَذَا قَدِ ٱخْتَبَأَ بَيْنَ ٱلْأَمْتِعَةِ». ٢٢ 22
And Samuel asked yet again of the Lord, Will the man come here? and the Lord said, Behold, he is hid among the stuff.
فَرَكَضُوا وَأَخَذُوهُ مِنْ هُنَاكَ، فَوَقَفَ بَيْنَ ٱلشَّعْبِ، فَكَانَ أَطْوَلَ مِنْ كُلِّ ٱلشَّعْبِ مِنْ كَتِفِهِ فَمَا فَوْقُ. ٢٣ 23
And he ran and took him thence, and he set him in the midst of the people; and he was higher than all the people by his shoulders and upwards.
فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ لِجَمِيعِ ٱلشَّعْبِ: «أَرَأَيْتُمُ ٱلَّذِي ٱخْتَارَهُ ٱلرَّبُّ، أَنَّهُ لَيْسَ مِثْلُهُ فِي جَمِيعِ ٱلشَّعْبِ؟» فَهَتَفَ كُلُّ ٱلشَّعْبِ وَقَالُوا: «لِيَحْيَ ٱلْمَلِكُ!». ٢٤ 24
And Samuel said to all the people, Have you seen whom the Lord has chosen to himself, that there is none like to him among you all? And all the people took notice, and said, Let the king live!
فَكَلَّمَ صَمُوئِيلُ ٱلشَّعْبَ بِقَضَاءِ ٱلْمَمْلَكَةِ، وَكَتَبَهُ فِي ٱلسِّفْرِ وَوَضَعَهُ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ. ثُمَّ أَطْلَقَ صَمُوئِيلُ جَمِيعَ ٱلشَّعْبِ كُلَّ وَاحِدٍ إِلَى بَيْتِهِ. ٢٥ 25
And Samuel told the people the manner of the king, and wrote it in a book, and set it before the Lord: and Samuel sent away all the people, and each went to his place.
وَشَاوُلُ أَيْضًا ذَهَبَ إِلَى بَيْتِهِ إِلَى جِبْعَةَ، وَذَهَبَ مَعَهُ ٱلْجَمَاعَةُ ٱلَّتِي مَسَّ ٱللهُ قَلْبَهَا. ٢٦ 26
And Saul departed to his house to Gabaa; and there went with Saul mighty men whose hearts God had touched.
وَأَمَّا بَنُو بَلِيَّعَالَ فَقَالُوا: «كَيْفَ يُخَلِّصُنَا هَذَا؟». فَٱحْتَقَرُوهُ وَلَمْ يُقَدِّمُوا لَهُ هَدِيَّةً. فَكَانَ كَأَصَمَّ. ٢٧ 27
But evil men said, Who [is] this man [that] shall save us? and they despised him, and brought him no gifts.
