1 صموئيل 15

وَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ لِشَاوُلَ: «إِيَّايَ أَرْسَلَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمَسْحِكَ مَلِكًا عَلَى شَعْبِهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ. وَٱلْآنَ فَٱسْمَعْ صَوْتَ كَلَامِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ١ 1
And Samuel said to Saul, The Lord sent me to anoint you king over Israel: and now hear the voice of the Lord.
هَكَذَا يَقُولُ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ: إِنِّي قَدِ ٱفْتَقَدْتُ مَا عَمِلَ عَمَالِيقُ بِإِسْرَائِيلَ حِينَ وَقَفَ لَهُ فِي ٱلطَّرِيقِ عِنْدَ صُعُودِهِ مِنْ مِصْرَ. ٢ 2
Thus said the Lord of hosts, Now will I take vengeance for what Amalec did to Israel, when he met him in the way as he came up out of Egypt.
فَٱلْآنَ ٱذْهَبْ وَٱضْرِبْ عَمَالِيقَ، وَحَرِّمُوا كُلَّ مَا لَهُ وَلَا تَعْفُ عَنْهُمْ بَلِ ٱقْتُلْ رَجُلًا وَٱمْرَأَةً، طِفْلًا وَرَضِيعًا، بَقَرًا وَغَنَمًا، جَمَلًا وَحِمَارًا». ٣ 3
And now go, and you shall strike Amalec and Hierim and all that belongs to him, and you shall not save anything of him alive, but you shall utterly destroy him: and you shall devote him and all his to [destruction], and you shall spare nothing belonging to him; and you shall kill both man and woman, and infant and suckling, and calf and sheep, and camel and ass.
فَٱسْتَحْضَرَ شَاوُلُ ٱلشَّعْبَ وَعَدَّهُ فِي طَلَايِمَ، مِئَتَيْ أَلْفِ رَاجِلٍ، وَعَشْرَةَ آلَافِ رَجُلٍ مِنْ يَهُوذَا. ٤ 4
And Saul summoned the people, and he numbered them in Galgala, four hundred thousand regular troops, and Juda thirty thousand regular troops.
ثُمَّ جَاءَ شَاوُلُ إِلَى مَدِينَةِ عَمَالِيقَ وَكَمَنَ فِي ٱلْوَادِي. ٥ 5
And Saul came to the cities of Amalec, and laid wait in the valley.
وَقَالَ شَاوُلُ لِلْقَيْنِيِّينَ: «ٱذْهَبُوا حِيدُوا ٱنْزِلُوا مِنْ وَسَطِ ٱلْعَمَالِقَةِ لِئَّلَا أُهْلِكَكُمْ مَعَهُمْ، وَأَنْتُمْ قَدْ فَعَلْتُمْ مَعْرُوفًا مَعَ جَمِيعِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ عِنْدَ صُعُودِهِمْ مِنْ مِصْرَ». فَحَادَ ٱلْقَيْنِيُّ مِنْ وَسَطِ عَمَالِيقَ. ٦ 6
And Saul said to the Kinite, Go, and depart out of the midst of the Amalekites, lest I put you with them; for you dealt mercifully with the children of Israel when they went up out of Egypt. So the Kinite departed from the midst of Amalec.
وَضَرَبَ شَاوُلُ عَمَالِيقَ مِنْ حَوِيلَةَ حَتَّى مَجِيئِكَ إِلَى شُورَ ٱلَّتِي مُقَابِلَ مِصْرَ. ٧ 7
And Saul struck Amalec from Evilat to Sur fronting Egypt.
وَأَمْسَكَ أَجَاجَ مَلِكَ عَمَالِيقَ حَيًّا، وَحَرَّمَ جَمِيعَ ٱلشَّعْبِ بِحَدِّ ٱلسَّيْفِ. ٨ 8
And he took Agag the king of Amalec alive, and he killed all the people and Hierim with the edge of the sword.
وَعَفَا شَاوُلُ وَٱلشَّعْبُ عَنْ أَجَاجَ وَعَنْ خِيَارِ ٱلْغَنَمِ وَٱلْبَقَرِ وَٱلثُّنْيَانِ وَٱلْخِرَافِ، وَعَنْ كُلِّ ٱلْجَيِّدِ، وَلَمْ يَرْضَوْا أَنْ يُحَرِّمُوهَا. وَكُلُّ ٱلْأَمْلَاكِ ٱلْمُحْتَقَرَةِ وَٱلْمَهْزُولَةِ حَرَّمُوهَا. ٩ 9
And Saul and all the people saved Agag alive, and the best of the flocks, and of the herds, and of the fruits, of the vineyards, and of all the good things; and they would not destroy them: but every worthless and refuse thing they destroyed.
وَكَانَ كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى صَمُوئِيلَ قَائِلًا: ١٠ 10
And the word of the Lord came to Samuel, saying,
«نَدِمْتُ عَلَى أَنِّي قَدْ جَعَلْتُ شَاوُلَ مَلِكًا، لِأَنَّهُ رَجَعَ مِنْ وَرَائِي وَلَمْ يُقِمْ كَلَامِي». فَٱغْتَاظَ صَمُوئِيلُ وَصَرَخَ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ ٱللَّيْلَ كُلَّهُ. ١١ 11
I have repented that I have made Saul to be king: for he has turned back from following me, and has not kept my word. And Samuel was grieved, and cried to the Lord all night.
فَبَكَّرَ صَمُوئِيلُ لِلِقَاءِ شَاوُلَ صَبَاحًا. فَأُخْبِرَ صَمُوئِيلُ وَقِيلَ لَهُ: «قَدْ جَاءَ شَاوُلُ إِلَى ٱلْكَرْمَلِ، وَهُوَذَا قَدْ نَصَبَ لِنَفْسِهِ نُصْبًا وَدَارَ وَعَبَرَ وَنَزَلَ إِلَى ٱلْجِلْجَالِ». ١٢ 12
And Samuel rose early and went to meet Israel in the morning, and it was told Saul, saying, Samuel has come to Carmel, and he has raised up help for himself: and he turned his chariot, and came down to Galgala to Saul; and, behold, he was offering up a whole burnt offering to the Lord, the chief of the spoils which he brought out of Amalec.
وَلَمَّا جَاءَ صَمُوئِيلُ إِلَى شَاوُلَ قَالَ لَهُ شَاوُلُ: «مُبَارَكٌ أَنْتَ لِلرَّبِّ. قَدْ أَقَمْتُ كَلَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ». ١٣ 13
And Samuel came to Saul: and Saul said to him, Blessed [are] you of the Lord: I have performed all that the Lord said.
فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ: «وَمَا هُوَ صَوْتُ ٱلْغَنَمِ هَذَا فِي أُذُنَيَّ، وَصَوْتُ ٱلْبَقَرِ ٱلَّذِي أَنَا سَامِعٌ؟» ١٤ 14
And Samuel said, What then [is] the bleating of this flock in my ears, and the sound of the oxen which I hear?
فَقَالَ شَاوُلُ: «مِنَ ٱلْعَمَالِقَةِ، قَدْ أَتَوْا بِهَا، لِأَنَّ ٱلشَّعْبَ قَدْ عَفَا عَنْ خِيَارِ ٱلْغَنَمِ وَٱلْبَقَرِ لِأَجْلِ ٱلذَّبْحِ لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ. وَأَمَّا ٱلْبَاقِي فَقَدْ حَرَّمْنَاهُ». ١٥ 15
And Saul said, I have brought them out of Amalec, that which the people preserved, even the best of the sheep, and of the cattle, that it might be sacrificed to the Lord your God, and the rest have I utterly destroyed.
فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ لِشَاوُلَ: «كُفَّ فَأُخْبِرَكَ بِمَا تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَيَّ هَذِهِ ٱللَّيْلَةَ». فَقَالَ لَهُ: «تَكَلَّمْ». ١٦ 16
And Samuel said to Saul, Stay, and I will tell you what the Lord has said to me this night: and he said to him, Say on.
فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ: «أَلَيْسَ إِذْ كُنْتَ صَغِيرًا فِي عَيْنَيْكَ صِرْتَ رَأْسَ أَسْبَاطِ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَمَسَحَكَ ٱلرَّبُّ مَلِكًا عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ، ١٧ 17
And Samuel said to Saul, Are you not little in his eyes, [though] a leader of one of the tribes of Israel? and [yet] the Lord anointed you to be king over Israel.
وَأَرْسَلَكَ ٱلرَّبُّ فِي طَرِيقٍ وَقَالَ: ٱذْهَبْ وَحَرِّمِ ٱلْخُطَاةَ عَمَالِيقَ وَحَارِبْهُمْ حَتَّى يَفْنَوْا؟ ١٨ 18
And the Lord sent you on a journey, and said to you, Go, and utterly destroy: you shall kill the sinners against me, [even] the Amalekites; and you shall war against them until you have consumed them.
فَلِمَاذَا لَمْ تَسْمَعْ لِصَوْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ، بَلْ ثُرْتَ عَلَى ٱلْغَنِيمَةِ وَعَمِلْتَ ٱلشَّرَّ فِي عَيْنَيِ ٱلرَّبِّ؟». ١٩ 19
And why did not you listen to the voice of the Lord, but did haste to fasten upon the spoils, and did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord?
فَقَالَ شَاوُلُ لِصَمُوئِيلَ: «إِنِّي قَدْ سَمِعْتُ لِصَوْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ وَذَهَبْتُ فِي ٱلطَّرِيقِ ٱلَّتِي أَرْسَلَنِي فِيهَا ٱلرَّبُّ وَأَتَيْتُ بِأَجَاجَ مَلِكِ عَمَالِيقَ وَحَرَّمْتُ عَمَالِيقَ. ٢٠ 20
And Saul said to Samuel, Because I listened to the voice of the people: yet I went the way by which the Lord sent me, and I brought Agag the king of Amalec, and I destroyed Amalec.
فَأَخَذَ ٱلشَّعْبُ مِنَ ٱلْغَنِيمَةِ غَنَمًا وَبَقَرًا، أَوَائِلَ ٱلْحَرَامِ لِأَجْلِ ٱلذَّبْحِ لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ فِي ٱلْجِلْجَالِ». ٢١ 21
But the people took of the spoils the best flocks and herds [out] of that which was destroyed, to sacrifice before the Lord our God in Galgal.
فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ: «هَلْ مَسَرَّةُ ٱلرَّبِّ بِٱلْمُحْرَقَاتِ وَٱلذَّبَائِحِ كَمَا بِٱسْتِمَاعِ صَوْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ؟ هُوَذَا ٱلِٱسْتِمَاعُ أَفْضَلُ مِنَ ٱلذَّبِيحَةِ، وَٱلْإِصْغَاءُ أَفْضَلُ مِنْ شَحْمِ ٱلْكِبَاشِ. ٢٢ 22
And Samuel said, Does the Lord take pleasure in whole burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in hearing the words of the Lord? behold, obedience [is] better than a good sacrifice, and hearkening than the fat of rams.
لِأَنَّ ٱلتَّمَرُّدَ كَخَطِيَّةِ ٱلْعِرَافَةِ، وَٱلْعِنَادُ كَٱلْوَثَنِ وَٱلتَّرَافِيمِ. لِأَنَّكَ رَفَضْتَ كَلَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ رَفَضَكَ مِنَ ٱلْمُلْكِ». ٢٣ 23
For sin is [as] divination; idols bring on pain and grief. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, the Lord also shall reject you from being king over Israel.
فَقَالَ شَاوُلُ لِصَمُوئِيلَ: «أَخْطَأْتُ لِأَنِّي تَعَدَّيْتُ قَوْلَ ٱلرَّبِّ وَكَلَامَكَ، لِأَنِّي خِفْتُ مِنَ ٱلشَّعْبِ وَسَمِعْتُ لِصَوْتِهِمْ. ٢٤ 24
And Saul said to Samuel, I have sinned, in that I have transgressed the word of the Lord and your direction; for I feared the people, and I listened to their voice.
وَٱلْآنَ فَٱغْفِرْ خَطِيَّتِي وَٱرْجِعْ مَعِي فَأَسْجُدَ لِلرَّبِّ». ٢٥ 25
And now remove, I pray you, my sin, and turn back with me, and I will worship the Lord your God.
فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ لِشَاوُلَ: «لَا أَرْجِعُ مَعَكَ لِأَنَّكَ رَفَضْتَ كَلَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ، فَرَفَضَكَ ٱلرَّبُّ مِنْ أَنْ تَكُونَ مَلِكًا عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ». ٢٦ 26
And Samuel said to Saul, I will not turn back with you, for you have rejected the word of the Lord, and the Lord will reject you from being king over Israel.
وَدَارَ صَمُوئِيلُ لِيَمْضِيَ، فَأَمْسَكَ بِذَيْلِ جُبَّتِهِ فَٱنْمَزَقَ. ٢٧ 27
And Samuel turned his face to depart, and Saul caught hold of the skirt of his garment, and tore it.
فَقَالَ لَهُ صَمُوئِيلُ: «يُمَزِّقُ ٱلرَّبُّ مَمْلَكَةَ إِسْرَائِيلَ عَنْكَ ٱلْيَوْمَ وَيُعْطِيهَا لِصَاحِبِكَ ٱلَّذِي هُوَ خَيْرٌ مِنْكَ. ٢٨ 28
And Samuel said to him, The Lord has tore your kingdom from Israel out of your hand this day, and will give it to your neighbor who is better than you.
وَأَيْضًا نَصِيحُ إِسْرَائِيلَ لَا يَكْذِبُ وَلَا يَنْدَمُ، لِأَنَّهُ لَيْسَ إِنْسَانًا لِيَنْدَمَ». ٢٩ 29
And Israel shall be divided to two: and [God] will not turn nor repent, for he is not as a man to repent.
فَقَالَ: «قَدْ أَخْطَأْتُ. وَٱلْآنَ فَأَكْرِمْنِي أَمَامَ شُيُوخِ شَعْبِي وَأَمَامَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَٱرْجِعْ مَعِي فَأَسْجُدَ لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ». ٣٠ 30
And Saul said, I have sinned; yet honor me, I pray you, before the elders of Israel, and before my people; and turn back with me, and I will worship the Lord your God.
فَرَجَعَ صَمُوئِيلُ وَرَاءَ شَاوُلَ، وَسَجَدَ شَاوُلُ لِلرَّبِّ. ٣١ 31
So Samuel turned back after Saul, and he worshipped the Lord.
وَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ: «قَدِّمُوا إِلَيَّ أَجَاجَ مَلِكَ عَمَالِيقَ». فَذَهَبَ إِلَيْهِ أَجَاجُ فَرِحًا. وَقَالَ أَجَاجُ: «حَقًّا قَدْ زَالَتْ مَرَارَةُ ٱلْمَوْتِ». ٣٢ 32
And Samuel said, Bring me Agag the king of Amalec: and Agag came to him trembling; and Agag said Is death thus bitter?
فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ: «كَمَا أَثْكَلَ سَيْفُكَ ٱلنِّسَاءَ، كَذَلِكَ تُثْكَلُ أُمُّكَ بَيْنَ ٱلنِّسَاءِ». فَقَطَعَ صَمُوئِيلُ أَجَاجَ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ فِي ٱلْجِلْجَالِ. ٣٣ 33
And Samuel said to Agag, As your sword has bereaved women of their children, so shall your mother be made childless among women: and Samuel killed Agag before the Lord in Galgal.
وَذَهَبَ صَمُوئِيلُ إِلَى ٱلرَّامَةِ، وَأَمَّا شَاوُلُ فَصَعِدَ إِلَى بَيْتِهِ فِي جِبْعَةِ شَاوُلَ. ٣٤ 34
And Samuel departed to Armathaim, and Saul went up to his house at Gabaa.
وَلَمْ يَعُدْ صَمُوئِيلُ لِرُؤْيَةِ شَاوُلَ إِلَى يَوْمِ مَوْتِهِ، لِأَنَّ صَمُوئِيلَ نَاحَ عَلَى شَاوُلَ. وَٱلرَّبُّ نَدِمَ لِأَنَّهُ مَلَّكَ شَاوُلَ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٣٥ 35
And Samuel did not see Saul again till the day of his death, for Samuel mourned after Saul, and the Lord repented that he had made Saul king over Israel.
