1 صموئيل 15

وَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ لِشَاوُلَ: «إِيَّايَ أَرْسَلَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمَسْحِكَ مَلِكًا عَلَى شَعْبِهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ. وَٱلْآنَ فَٱسْمَعْ صَوْتَ كَلَامِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ١ 1
Samuel said to Saul, "The LORD sent me to anoint you to be king over his people, over Israel. Now therefore listen to the voice of the words 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 says the LORD of hosts, 'I will punish Amalek for what he did to Israel, how he set himself against him in the way, when 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
Now go and strike Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them; but kill both man and woman, infant and nursing baby, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.'"
فَٱسْتَحْضَرَ شَاوُلُ ٱلشَّعْبَ وَعَدَّهُ فِي طَلَايِمَ، مِئَتَيْ أَلْفِ رَاجِلٍ، وَعَشْرَةَ آلَافِ رَجُلٍ مِنْ يَهُوذَا. ٤ 4
Saul summoned the people, and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen, and ten thousand men of Judah.
ثُمَّ جَاءَ شَاوُلُ إِلَى مَدِينَةِ عَمَالِيقَ وَكَمَنَ فِي ٱلْوَادِي. ٥ 5
Saul came to the city of Amalek, and lay in 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
Saul said to the Kenites, "Go, depart, go down from among the Amalekites, lest I sweep you away with them; for you showed kindness to all the children of Israel, when they came up out of Egypt." So the Kenites departed from among the Amalekites.
وَضَرَبَ شَاوُلُ عَمَالِيقَ مِنْ حَوِيلَةَ حَتَّى مَجِيئِكَ إِلَى شُورَ ٱلَّتِي مُقَابِلَ مِصْرَ. ٧ 7
Saul struck the Amalekites, from Havilah as you go to Shur, that is before Egypt.
وَأَمْسَكَ أَجَاجَ مَلِكَ عَمَالِيقَ حَيًّا، وَحَرَّمَ جَمِيعَ ٱلشَّعْبِ بِحَدِّ ٱلسَّيْفِ. ٨ 8
He took Agag the king of the Amalekites alive, and utterly destroyed all the people 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
But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and the cattle, and the fat ones and the lambs, and all that was good, and wouldn't utterly destroy them; but everything that was despised and rejected, that they utterly destroyed.
وَكَانَ كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى صَمُوئِيلَ قَائِلًا: ١٠ 10
Then 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
"It grieves me that I have made Saul king; for he has turned back from following me, and has not carried out my commandments." And Samuel was angry; and he 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 to meet Saul in the morning; and it was told Samuel, saying, "Saul came to Carmel, and look, he set up a monument for himself, and turned, and passed on, and went down to Gilgal." And Samuel came to Saul, and look, he was offering up a burnt offering to the LORD, the best of the spoils which he had brought from Amalek.
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, "You are blessed by the LORD. I have performed the commandment of the LORD."
فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ: «وَمَا هُوَ صَوْتُ ٱلْغَنَمِ هَذَا فِي أُذُنَيَّ، وَصَوْتُ ٱلْبَقَرِ ٱلَّذِي أَنَا سَامِعٌ؟» ١٤ 14
Samuel said, "Then what does this bleating of the sheep in my ears, and the lowing of the cattle which I hear mean?"
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 from Amalek; for the people spared the best of the sheep and the cattle to sacrifice to the LORD your God, and I have utterly destroyed the rest."
فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ لِشَاوُلَ: «كُفَّ فَأُخْبِرَكَ بِمَا تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَيَّ هَذِهِ ٱللَّيْلَةَ». فَقَالَ لَهُ: «تَكَلَّمْ». ١٦ 16
Then Samuel said to Saul, "Stay, and I will tell you what the LORD has said to me last night." 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
Samuel said, "Though you were little in your own sight, weren't you made the head of the tribes of Israel? The LORD anointed you 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 the sinners the Amalekites, and fight against them until you have destroyed them.'
فَلِمَاذَا لَمْ تَسْمَعْ لِصَوْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ، بَلْ ثُرْتَ عَلَى ٱلْغَنِيمَةِ وَعَمِلْتَ ٱلشَّرَّ فِي عَيْنَيِ ٱلرَّبِّ؟». ١٩ 19
Why then did you not obey the voice of the LORD, but took 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
Saul said to Samuel, "But I have obeyed the voice of the LORD, and have gone the way which the LORD sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.
فَأَخَذَ ٱلشَّعْبُ مِنَ ٱلْغَنِيمَةِ غَنَمًا وَبَقَرًا، أَوَائِلَ ٱلْحَرَامِ لِأَجْلِ ٱلذَّبْحِ لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ فِي ٱلْجِلْجَالِ». ٢١ 21
But the people took of the spoil, sheep and cattle, the chief of the devoted things, to sacrifice to the LORD your God in Gilgal."
فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ: «هَلْ مَسَرَّةُ ٱلرَّبِّ بِٱلْمُحْرَقَاتِ وَٱلذَّبَائِحِ كَمَا بِٱسْتِمَاعِ صَوْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ؟ هُوَذَا ٱلِٱسْتِمَاعُ أَفْضَلُ مِنَ ٱلذَّبِيحَةِ، وَٱلْإِصْغَاءُ أَفْضَلُ مِنْ شَحْمِ ٱلْكِبَاشِ. ٢٢ 22
Samuel said, "Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Look, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of rams.
لِأَنَّ ٱلتَّمَرُّدَ كَخَطِيَّةِ ٱلْعِرَافَةِ، وَٱلْعِنَادُ كَٱلْوَثَنِ وَٱلتَّرَافِيمِ. لِأَنَّكَ رَفَضْتَ كَلَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ رَفَضَكَ مِنَ ٱلْمُلْكِ». ٢٣ 23
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as idolatry and teraphim. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, he has also rejected you from being king."
فَقَالَ شَاوُلُ لِصَمُوئِيلَ: «أَخْطَأْتُ لِأَنِّي تَعَدَّيْتُ قَوْلَ ٱلرَّبِّ وَكَلَامَكَ، لِأَنِّي خِفْتُ مِنَ ٱلشَّعْبِ وَسَمِعْتُ لِصَوْتِهِمْ. ٢٤ 24
Saul said to Samuel, "I have sinned; for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and your words, because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.
وَٱلْآنَ فَٱغْفِرْ خَطِيَّتِي وَٱرْجِعْ مَعِي فَأَسْجُدَ لِلرَّبِّ». ٢٥ 25
Now therefore, please pardon my sin, and turn again with me, that I may worship the LORD."
فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ لِشَاوُلَ: «لَا أَرْجِعُ مَعَكَ لِأَنَّكَ رَفَضْتَ كَلَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ، فَرَفَضَكَ ٱلرَّبُّ مِنْ أَنْ تَكُونَ مَلِكًا عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ». ٢٦ 26
Samuel said to Saul, "I will not return with you; for you have rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD has rejected you from being king over Israel."
وَدَارَ صَمُوئِيلُ لِيَمْضِيَ، فَأَمْسَكَ بِذَيْلِ جُبَّتِهِ فَٱنْمَزَقَ. ٢٧ 27
As Samuel turned about to go away, he grabbed the skirt of his robe, and it tore.
فَقَالَ لَهُ صَمُوئِيلُ: «يُمَزِّقُ ٱلرَّبُّ مَمْلَكَةَ إِسْرَائِيلَ عَنْكَ ٱلْيَوْمَ وَيُعْطِيهَا لِصَاحِبِكَ ٱلَّذِي هُوَ خَيْرٌ مِنْكَ. ٢٨ 28
Samuel said to him, "The LORD has torn the kingdom of Israel from you this day, and has given it to a neighbor of yours who is better than you.
وَأَيْضًا نَصِيحُ إِسْرَائِيلَ لَا يَكْذِبُ وَلَا يَنْدَمُ، لِأَنَّهُ لَيْسَ إِنْسَانًا لِيَنْدَمَ». ٢٩ 29
And also the Eternal One of Israel will not retract or change his mind; for he is not a man that he should change his mind."
فَقَالَ: «قَدْ أَخْطَأْتُ. وَٱلْآنَ فَأَكْرِمْنِي أَمَامَ شُيُوخِ شَعْبِي وَأَمَامَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَٱرْجِعْ مَعِي فَأَسْجُدَ لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ». ٣٠ 30
Then he said, "I have sinned: yet please honor me now before the elders of my people, and before Israel, and come back with me, that I may worship the LORD your God."
فَرَجَعَ صَمُوئِيلُ وَرَاءَ شَاوُلَ، وَسَجَدَ شَاوُلُ لِلرَّبِّ. ٣١ 31
So Samuel went back with Saul; and he worshiped the LORD.
وَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ: «قَدِّمُوا إِلَيَّ أَجَاجَ مَلِكَ عَمَالِيقَ». فَذَهَبَ إِلَيْهِ أَجَاجُ فَرِحًا. وَقَالَ أَجَاجُ: «حَقًّا قَدْ زَالَتْ مَرَارَةُ ٱلْمَوْتِ». ٣٢ 32
Then Samuel said, "Bring here to me Agag the king of the Amalekites." Agag came to him with faltering steps. Agag said, "Surely the bitterness of death is past."
فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ: «كَمَا أَثْكَلَ سَيْفُكَ ٱلنِّسَاءَ، كَذَلِكَ تُثْكَلُ أُمُّكَ بَيْنَ ٱلنِّسَاءِ». فَقَطَعَ صَمُوئِيلُ أَجَاجَ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ فِي ٱلْجِلْجَالِ. ٣٣ 33
Samuel said, "As your sword has made women childless, so your mother will be childless among women." Samuel cut Agag in pieces before the LORD in Gilgal.
وَذَهَبَ صَمُوئِيلُ إِلَى ٱلرَّامَةِ، وَأَمَّا شَاوُلُ فَصَعِدَ إِلَى بَيْتِهِ فِي جِبْعَةِ شَاوُلَ. ٣٤ 34
Then Samuel went to Ramah; and Saul went up to his house to Gibeah of Saul.
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 until the day of his death; for Samuel mourned for Saul. And the LORD grieved that he had made Saul king over Israel.
