1 صموئيل 16

فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِصَمُوئِيلَ: «حَتَّى مَتَى تَنُوحُ عَلَى شَاوُلَ، وَأَنَا قَدْ رَفَضْتُهُ عَنْ أَنْ يَمْلِكَ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ؟ اِمْلَأْ قَرْنَكَ دُهْنًا وَتَعَالَ أُرْسِلْكَ إِلَى يَسَّى ٱلْبَيْتَلَحْمِيِّ، لِأَنِّي قَدْ رَأَيْتُ لِي فِي بَنِيهِ مَلِكًا». ١ 1
The LORD said to Samuel, "How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him from being king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil, and go. I will send you to Jesse the Bethlehemite; for I have provided a king for myself among his sons."
فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ: «كَيْفَ أَذْهَبُ؟ إِنْ سَمِعَ شَاوُلُ يَقْتُلْنِي». فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «خُذْ بِيَدِكَ عِجْلَةً مِنَ ٱلْبَقَرِ وَقُلْ: قَدْ جِئْتُ لِأَذْبَحَ لِلرَّبِّ. ٢ 2
Samuel said, "How can I go? If Saul hears it, he will kill me." The LORD said, "Take a heifer with you, and say, I have come to sacrifice to the LORD.
وَٱدْعُ يَسَّى إِلَى ٱلذَّبِيحَةِ، وَأَنَا أُعَلِّمُكَ مَاذَا تَصْنَعُ. وَٱمْسَحْ لِيَ ٱلَّذِي أَقُولُ لَكَ عَنْهُ». ٣ 3
Call Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will show you what you shall do. You shall anoint to me him whom I name to you."
فَفَعَلَ صَمُوئِيلُ كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ وَجَاءَ إِلَى بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ. فَٱرْتَعَدَ شُيُوخُ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ عِنْدَ ٱسْتِقْبَالِهِ وَقَالُوا: «أَسَلَامٌ مَجِيئُكَ؟» ٤ 4
And Samuel did what the LORD said, and came to Bethlehem. And the elders of the city came to meet him trembling. And they said, "Is your visit peaceful, seer?"
فَقَالَ: «سَلَامٌ. قَدْ جِئْتُ لِأَذْبَحَ لِلرَّبِّ. تَقَدَّسُوا وَتَعَالَوْا مَعِي إِلَى ٱلذَّبِيحَةِ». وَقَدَّسَ يَسَّى وَبَنِيهِ وَدَعَاهُمْ إِلَى ٱلذَّبِيحَةِ. ٥ 5
And he said, "Peaceful; I have come to sacrifice to the LORD. Sanctify yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice." He sanctified Jesse and his sons, and called them to the sacrifice.
وَكَانَ لَمَّا جَاءُوا أَنَّهُ رَأَى أَلِيآبَ، فَقَالَ: «إِنَّ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ مَسِيحَهُ». ٦ 6
It happened, when they had come, that he looked at Eliab, and said, "Surely the LORD's anointed is before him."
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِصَمُوئِيلَ: «لَا تَنْظُرْ إِلَى مَنْظَرِهِ وَطُولِ قَامَتِهِ لِأَنِّي قَدْ رَفَضْتُهُ. لِأَنَّهُ لَيْسَ كَمَا يَنْظُرُ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ. لِأَنَّ ٱلْإِنْسَانَ يَنْظُرُ إِلَى ٱلْعَيْنَيْنِ، وَأَمَّا ٱلرَّبُّ فَإِنَّهُ يَنْظُرُ إِلَى ٱلْقَلْبِ». ٧ 7
But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For humans do not see as God sees, for humans look at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart."
فَدَعَا يَسَّى أَبِينَادَابَ وَعَبَّرَهُ أَمَامَ صَمُوئِيلَ، فَقَالَ: «وَهَذَا أَيْضًا لَمْ يَخْتَرْهُ ٱلرَّبُّ». ٨ 8
Then Jesse called Abinadab, and made him pass before Samuel. He said, "Neither has the LORD chosen this one."
وَعَبَّرَ يَسَّى شَمَّةَ، فَقَالَ: «وَهَذَا أَيْضًا لَمْ يَخْتَرْهُ ٱلرَّبُّ». ٩ 9
Then Jesse made Shimeah to pass by. He said, "Neither has the LORD chosen this one."
وَعَبَّرَ يَسَّى بَنِيهِ ٱلسَّبْعَةَ أَمَامَ صَمُوئِيلَ، فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ لِيَسَّى: «ٱلرَّبُّ لَمْ يَخْتَرْ هَؤُلَاءِ». ١٠ 10
And Jesse made seven of his sons pass before Samuel. And Samuel said to Jesse, "The LORD has not chosen these."
وَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ لِيَسَّى: «هَلْ كَمُلُوا ٱلْغِلْمَانُ؟» فَقَالَ: «بَقِيَ بَعْدُ ٱلصَّغِيرُ وَهُوَذَا يَرْعَى ٱلْغَنَمَ». فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ لِيَسَّى: «أَرْسِلْ وَأْتِ بِهِ، لِأَنَّنَا لَا نَجْلِسُ حَتَّى يَأْتِيَ إِلَى هَهُنَا». ١١ 11
Samuel said to Jesse, "Are all your children here?" He said, "There remains yet the youngest, and look, he is keeping the sheep." Samuel said to Jesse, "Send and get him; for we will not sit down until he comes here."
فَأَرْسَلَ وَأَتَى بِهِ. وَكَانَ أَشْقَرَ مَعَ حَلَاوَةِ ٱلْعَيْنَيْنِ وَحَسَنَ ٱلْمَنْظَرِ. فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «قُمِ ٱمْسَحْهُ، لِأَنَّ هَذَا هُوَ». ١٢ 12
And he sent and brought him in. And he was reddish brown, and had beautiful eyes, and was handsome. And the LORD said, "Arise, anoint him, for he is the one."
فَأَخَذَ صَمُوئِيلُ قَرْنَ ٱلدُّهْنِ وَمَسَحَهُ فِي وَسَطِ إِخْوَتِهِ. وَحَلَّ رُوحُ ٱلرَّبِّ عَلَى دَاوُدَ مِنْ ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ فَصَاعِدًا. ثُمَّ قَامَ صَمُوئِيلُ وَذَهَبَ إِلَى ٱلرَّامَةِ. ١٣ 13
Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brothers: and the Spirit of the LORD came mightily on David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.
وَذَهَبَ رُوحُ ٱلرَّبِّ مِنْ عِنْدِ شَاوُلَ، وَبَغَتَهُ رُوحٌ رَدِيءٌ مِنْ قِبَلِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ١٤ 14
Now the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.
فَقَالَ عَبِيدُ شَاوُلَ لَهُ: «هُوَذَا رُوحٌ رَدِيءٌ مِنْ قِبَلِ ٱللهِ يَبْغَتُكَ. ١٥ 15
Saul's servants said to him, "See now, an evil spirit from God troubles you.
فَلْيَأْمُرْ سَيِّدُنَا عَبِيدَهُ قُدَّامَهُ أَنْ يُفَتِّشُوا عَلَى رَجُلٍ يُحْسِنُ ٱلضَّرْبَ بِٱلْعُودِ. وَيَكُونُ إِذَا كَانَ عَلَيْكَ ٱلرُّوحُ ٱلرَّدِيءُ مِنْ قِبَلِ ٱللهِ، أَنَّهُ يَضْرِبُ بِيَدِهِ فَتَطِيبُ». ١٦ 16
Let our lord now command your servants who are before you, to seek out a man who is a skillful player on the harp. It shall happen, when the evil spirit from God is on you, that he shall play with his hand, and you shall be well, and it will give you relief."
فَقَالَ شَاوُلُ لِعَبِيدِهِ: «ٱنْظُرُوا لِي رَجُلًا يُحْسِنُ ٱلضَّرْبَ وَأْتُوا بِهِ إِلَيَّ». ١٧ 17
Saul said to his servants, "Provide me now a man who can play well, and bring him to me."
فَأَجَابَ وَاحِدٌ مِنَ ٱلْغِلْمَانِ وَقَالَ: «هُوَذَا قَدْ رَأَيْتُ ٱبْنًا لِيَسَّى ٱلْبَيْتَلَحْمِيِّ يُحْسِنُ ٱلضَّرْبَ، وَهُوَ جَبَّارُ بَأْسٍ وَرَجُلُ حَرْبٍ، وَفَصِيحٌ وَرَجُلٌ جَمِيلٌ، وَٱلرَّبُّ مَعَهُ». ١٨ 18
Then one of the young men answered, and said, "Look, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, who is skillful in playing, and a mighty man of valor, and a warrior, and articulate in speech, and a handsome man; and the LORD is with him."
فَأَرْسَلَ شَاوُلُ رُسُلًا إِلَى يَسَّى يَقُولُ: «أَرْسِلْ إِلَيَّ دَاوُدَ ٱبْنَكَ ٱلَّذِي مَعَ ٱلْغَنَمِ». ١٩ 19
Therefore Saul sent messengers to Jesse, and said, "Send me David your son, who is with the sheep."
فَأَخَذَ يَسَّى حِمَارًا حَامِلًا خُبْزًا وَزِقَّ خَمْرٍ وَجَدْيَ مِعْزًى، وَأَرْسَلَهَا بِيَدِ دَاوُدَ ٱبْنِهِ إِلَى شَاوُلَ. ٢٠ 20
And Jesse took a donkey and loaded it with an omer of bread, and a skin of wine, and a young goat, and sent them by David his son to Saul.
فَجَاءَ دَاوُدُ إِلَى شَاوُلَ وَوَقَفَ أَمَامَهُ، فَأَحَبَّهُ جِدًّا وَكَانَ لَهُ حَامِلَ سِلَاحٍ. ٢١ 21
David came to Saul, and stood before him. He loved him greatly; and he became his armor bearer.
فَأَرْسَلَ شَاوُلُ إِلَى يَسَّى يَقُولُ: «لِيَقِفْ دَاوُدُ أَمَامِي لِأَنَّهُ وَجَدَ نِعْمَةً فِي عَيْنَيَّ». ٢٢ 22
Saul sent to Jesse, saying, "Please let David stand before me; for he has found favor in my sight."
وَكَانَ عِنْدَمَا جَاءَ ٱلرُّوحُ مِنْ قِبَلِ ٱللهِ عَلَى شَاوُلَ أَنَّ دَاوُدَ أَخَذَ ٱلْعُودَ وَضَرَبَ بِيَدِهِ، فَكَانَ يَرْتَاحُ شَاوُلُ وَيَطِيبُ وَيَذْهَبُ عَنْهُ ٱلرُّوحُ ٱلرَّدِيءُ. ٢٣ 23
It happened, when the spirit from God was on Saul, that David took the harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.
