1 صموئيل 2

فَصَلَّتْ حَنَّةُ وَقَالَتْ: «فَرِحَ قَلْبِي بِٱلرَّبِّ. ٱرْتَفَعَ قَرْنِي بِٱلرَّبِّ. ٱتَّسَعَ فَمِي عَلَى أَعْدَائِي، لِأَنِّي قَدِ ٱبْتَهَجْتُ بِخَلَاصِكَ. ١ 1
Hannah prayed, and said: "My heart exults in the LORD. My horn is exalted in my God. My mouth is enlarged over my enemies, because I rejoice in your salvation.
لَيْسَ قُدُّوسٌ مِثْلَ ٱلرَّبِّ، لِأَنَّهُ لَيْسَ غَيْرَكَ، وَلَيْسَ صَخْرَةٌ مِثْلَ إِلَهِنَا. ٢ 2
Truly, there is no one as holy as the LORD. Truly, there is no one besides you, nor is there any rock like our God.
لَا تُكَثِّرُوا ٱلْكَلَامَ ٱلْعَالِيَ ٱلْمُسْتَعْلِيَ، وَلْتَبْرَحْ وَقَاحَةٌ مِنْ أَفْوَاهِكُمْ. لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهٌ عَلِيمٌ، وَبِهِ تُوزَنُ ٱلْأَعْمَالُ. ٣ 3
"Do not keep speaking proudly. Do not let arrogance come out of your mouth, for the LORD is a God of knowledge. By him actions are weighed.
قِسِيُّ ٱلْجَبَابِرَةِ تحَطَّمَتْ، وَٱلضُّعَفَاءُ تَمَنْطَقُوا بِٱلْبَأْسِ. ٤ 4
"The bows of the mighty men are broken. Those who stumbled are armed with strength.
ٱلشَّبَاعَى آجَرُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ بِٱلْخُبْزِ، وَٱلْجِيَاعُ كَفُّوا. حَتَّى أَنَّ ٱلْعَاقِرَ وَلَدَتْ سَبْعَةً، وَكَثِيرَةَ ٱلْبَنِينَ ذَبُلَتْ. ٥ 5
Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread. Those who were hungry are satisfied. Even the barren has borne seven, and she who has many children languishes.
ٱلرَّبُّ يُمِيتُ وَيُحْيِي. يُهْبِطُ إِلَى ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ وَيُصْعِدُ. (Sheol h7585) ٦ 6
"The LORD kills, and makes alive. He brings down to Sheol, and brings up. (Sheol h7585)
ٱلرَّبُّ يُفْقِرُ وَيُغْنِي. يَضَعُ وَيَرْفَعُ. ٧ 7
The LORD makes poor, and makes rich. He brings low, he also lifts up.
يُقِيمُ ٱلْمِسْكِينَ مِنَ ٱلتُّرَابِ. يَرْفَعُ ٱلْفَقِيرَ مِنَ ٱلْمَزْبَلَةِ لِلْجُلُوسِ مَعَ ٱلشُّرَفَاءِ وَيُمَلِّكُهُمْ كُرْسِيَّ ٱلْمَجْدِ. لِأَنَّ لِلرَّبِّ أَعْمِدَةَ ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَقَدْ وَضَعَ عَلَيْهَا ٱلْمَسْكُونَةَ. ٨ 8
He raises up the poor out of the dust. He lifts up the needy from the dunghill, To make them sit with princes, and inherit the throne of glory. For the pillars of the earth are the LORD's. He has set the world on them.
أَرْجُلَ أَتْقِيَائِهِ يَحْرُسُ، وَٱلْأَشْرَارُ فِي ٱلظَّلَامِ يَصْمُتُونَ. لِأَنَّهُ لَيْسَ بِٱلْقُوَّةِ يَغْلِبُ إِنْسَانٌ. ٩ 9
He will guard the feet of his faithful ones, but the wicked will be put to silence in darkness. For no man will prevail by strength.
مُخَاصِمُو ٱلرَّبِّ يَنْكَسِرُونَ. مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ يُرْعِدُ عَلَيْهِمْ. ٱلرَّبُّ يَدِينُ أَقَاصِيَ ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَيُعْطِي عِزًّا لِمَلِكِهِ، وَيَرْفَعُ قَرْنَ مَسِيحِهِ». ١٠ 10
The LORD will shatter his adversaries. He will thunder against them in the sky. "The LORD will judge the farthest parts of the earth. He will give strength to his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed."
وَذَهَبَ أَلْقَانَةُ إِلَى ٱلرَّامَةِ إِلَى بَيْتِهِ، وَكَانَ ٱلصَّبِيُّ يَخْدِمُ ٱلرَّبَّ أَمَامَ عَالِي ٱلْكَاهِنِ. ١١ 11
Elkanah went to Ramah to his house. The child served the LORD before Eli the priest.
وَكَانَ بَنُو عَالِي بَنِي بَلِيَّعَالَ، لَمْ يَعْرِفُوا ٱلرَّبَّ ١٢ 12
Now the sons of Eli were base men; they did not know the LORD.
وَلَا حَقَّ ٱلْكَهَنَةِ مِنَ ٱلشَّعْبِ. كُلَّمَا ذَبَحَ رَجُلٌ ذَبِيحَةً يَجِيءُ غُلَامُ ٱلْكَاهِنِ عِنْدَ طَبْخِ ٱللَّحْمِ، وَمِنْشَالٌ ذُو ثَلَاثَةِ أَسْنَانٍ بِيَدِهِ، ١٣ 13
The custom of the priests with the people was that when any man offered sacrifice, the priest's servant came, while the flesh was boiling, with a fork of three teeth in his hand;
فَيَضْرِبُ فِي ٱلْمِرْحَضَةِ أَوِ ٱلْمِرْجَلِ أَوِ ٱلْمِقْلَى أَوِ ٱلْقِدْرِ. كُلُّ مَا يَصْعَدُ بِهِ ٱلْمِنْشَلُ يَأْخُذُهُ ٱلْكَاهِنُ لِنَفْسِهِ. هَكَذَا كَانُوا يَفْعَلُونَ بِجَمِيعِ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلْآتِينَ إِلَى هُنَاكَ فِي شِيلُوهَ. ١٤ 14
and he struck it into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot; all that the fork brought up the priest took therewith. So they did in Shiloh to all the Israelites who came there.
كَذَلِكَ قَبْلَ مَا يُحْرِقُونَ ٱلشَّحْمَ يَأْتِي غُلَامُ ٱلْكَاهِنِ وَيَقُولُ لِلرَّجُلِ ٱلذَّابِحِ: «أَعْطِ لَحْمًا لِيُشْوَى لِلْكَاهِنِ، فَإِنَّهُ لَا يَأْخُذُ مِنْكَ لَحْمًا مَطْبُوخًا بَلْ نَيْئًا». ١٥ 15
Yes, before they burnt the fat, the priest's servant came, and said to the man who sacrificed, "Give meat to roast for the priest; for he will not accept boiled meat from you, but raw."
فَيَقُولُ لَهُ ٱلرَّجُلُ: «لِيُحْرِقُوا أَوَّلًا ٱلشَّحْمَ، ثُمَّ خُذْ مَا تَشْتَهِيهِ نَفْسُكَ». فَيَقُولُ لَهُ: «لَا، بَلِ ٱلْآنَ تُعْطِي وَإِلَّا فَآخُذُ غَصْبًا». ١٦ 16
If the man said to him, "Let the fat be burned first, and then take all of it which your soul desires"; then he would say, "No, but you shall give it to me now; and if not, I will take it by force."
فَكَانَتْ خَطِيَّةُ ٱلْغِلْمَانِ عَظِيمَةً جِدًّا أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ، لِأَنَّ ٱلنَّاسَ ٱسْتَهَانُوا بِتَقْدِمَةِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ١٧ 17
The sin of the young men was very great before the LORD; for they despised the offering of the LORD.
وَكَانَ صَمُوئِيلُ يَخْدِمُ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ وَهُوَ صَبِيٌّ مُتَمَنْطِقٌ بِأَفُودٍ مِنْ كَتَّانٍ. ١٨ 18
But Samuel ministered before the LORD, being a child, clothed with a linen ephod.
وَعَمِلَتْ لَهُ أُمُّهُ جُبَّةً صَغِيرَةً وَأَصْعَدَتْهَا لَهُ مِنْ سَنَةٍ إِلَى سَنَةٍ عِنْدَ صُعُودِهَا مَعَ رَجُلِهَا لِذَبْحِ ٱلذَّبِيحَةِ ٱلسَّنَوِيَّةِ. ١٩ 19
Moreover his mother made him a little robe, and brought it to him from year to year, when she came up with her husband to offer the yearly sacrifice.
وَبَارَكَ عَالِي أَلْقَانَةَ وَٱمْرَأَتَهُ وَقَالَ: «يَجْعَلْ لَكَ ٱلرَّبُّ نَسْلًا مِنْ هَذِهِ ٱلْمَرْأَةِ بَدَلَ ٱلْعَارِيَّةِ ٱلَّتِي أَعَارَتْ لِلرَّبِّ». وَذَهَبَا إِلَى مَكَانِهِمَا. ٢٠ 20
And Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife, and said, "May the LORD repay you with offspring by this woman for the gift which she made to the LORD." And the man returned to his home.
وَلَمَّا ٱفْتَقَدَ ٱلرَّبُّ حَنَّةَ حَبِلَتْ وَوَلَدَتْ ثَلَاثَةَ بَنِينَ وَبِنْتَيْنِ. وَكَبُرَ ٱلصَّبِيُّ صَمُوئِيلُ عِنْدَ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٢١ 21
The LORD visited Hannah, and she bore more children, three sons and two daughters. The child Samuel grew before the LORD.
وَشَاخَ عَالِي جِدًّا، وَسَمِعَ بِكُلِّ مَا عَمِلَهُ بَنُوهُ بِجَمِيعِ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَبِأَنَّهُمْ كَانُوا يُضَاجِعُونَ ٱلنِّسَاءَ ٱلْمُجْتَمِعَاتِ فِي بَابِ خَيْمَةِ ٱلِٱجْتِمَاعِ. ٢٢ 22
Now Eli was very old; and he heard what his sons did to the people of Israel (and how that they lay with the women who served at the door of the Tent of Meeting).
فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «لِمَاذَا تَعْمَلُونَ مِثْلَ هَذِهِ ٱلْأُمُورِ؟ لِأَنِّي أَسْمَعُ بِأُمُورِكُمُ ٱلْخَبِيثَةِ مِنْ جَمِيعِ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبِ. ٢٣ 23
And he said to them, "Why do you do such things as these that I hear being said of you from the mouth of the people of the LORD?
لَا يَابَنِيَّ، لِأَنَّهُ لَيْسَ حَسَنًا ٱلْخَبَرُ ٱلَّذِي أَسْمَعُ. تَجْعَلُونَ شَعْبَ ٱلرَّبِّ يَتَعَدُّونَ. ٢٤ 24
No, my sons, do not do this. For it is not a good report that I hear the people of the LORD spreading.
إِذَا أَخْطَأَ إِنْسَانٌ إِلَى إِنْسَانٍ يَدِينُهُ ٱللهُ. فَإِنْ أَخْطَأَ إِنْسَانٌ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ فَمَنْ يُصَلِّي مِنْ أَجْلِهِ؟» وَلَمْ يَسْمَعُوا لِصَوْتِ أَبِيهِمْ لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ شَاءَ أَنْ يُمِيتَهُمْ. ٢٥ 25
If one man sins against another, he shall appeal to the LORD; but if a man sins against the LORD, who shall entreat for him?" But, they did not listen to the voice of their father, because the LORD intended to kill them.
وَأَمَّا ٱلصَّبِيُّ صَمُوئِيلُ فَتَزَايَدَ نُمُوًّا وَصَلَاحًا لَدَى ٱلرَّبِّ وَٱلنَّاسِ أَيْضًا. ٢٦ 26
The child Samuel grew on, and increased in favor both with the LORD, and also with men.
وَجَاءَ رَجُلُ ٱللهِ إِلَى عَالِي وَقَالَ لَهُ: «هَكَذَا يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ: هَلْ تَجَلَّيْتُ لِبَيْتِ أَبِيكَ وَهُمْ فِي مِصْرَ فِي بَيْتِ فِرْعَوْنَ، ٢٧ 27
A man of God came to Eli, and said, "Thus says the LORD, I plainly revealed myself to the house of your father, when they were slaves in Egypt to the house of Pharaoh.
وَٱنْتَخَبْتُهُ مِنْ جَمِيعِ أَسْبَاطِ إِسْرَائِيلَ لِي كَاهِنًا لِيَصْعَدَ عَلَى مَذْبَحِي وَيُوقِدَ بَخُورًا وَيَلْبَسَ أَفُودًا أَمَامِي، وَدَفَعْتُ لِبَيْتِ أَبِيكَ جَمِيعَ وَقَائِدِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ؟ ٢٨ 28
And I chose him out of all the tribes of Israel to be my priest, to go up to my altar, to burn incense, to wear an ephod before me. And I gave to the house of your father all the offerings by fire of the people of Israel as food.
فَلِمَاذَا تَدُوسُونَ ذَبِيحَتِي وَتَقْدِمَتِي ٱلَّتِي أَمَرْتُ بِهَا فِي ٱلْمَسْكَنِ، وَتُكْرِمُ بَنِيكَ عَلَيَّ لِكَيْ تُسَمِّنُوا أَنْفُسَكُمْ بِأَوَائِلِ كُلِّ تَقْدِمَاتِ إِسْرَائِيلَ شَعْبِي؟ ٢٩ 29
Why do you look down on my sacrifice and on my offering, which I have commanded for my dwelling place, and honor your sons above me, to make yourselves fat with the best of all the offerings of Israel my people?'
لِذَلِكَ يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ: إِنِّي قُلْتُ إِنَّ بَيْتَكَ وَبَيْتَ أَبِيكَ يَسِيرُونَ أَمَامِي إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ. وَٱلْآنَ يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ: حَاشَا لِي! فَإِنِّي أُكْرِمُ ٱلَّذِينَ يُكْرِمُونَنِي، وَٱلَّذِينَ يَحْتَقِرُونَنِي يَصْغُرُونَ. ٣٠ 30
"Therefore the LORD, the God of Israel, says, 'I said indeed that your house, and the house of your father, should walk before me forever.' But now the LORD says, 'Be it far from me; for those who honor me I will honor, and those who despise me shall be lightly esteemed.
هُوَذَا تَأْتِي أَيَّامٌ أَقْطَعُ فِيهَا ذِرَاعَكَ وَذِرَاعَ بَيْتِ أَبِيكَ حَتَّى لَا يَكُونَ شَيْخٌ فِي بَيْتِكَ. ٣١ 31
Look, the days come, that I will cut off your descendants, and the descendants of your father's house, that there shall not be an old man in your house.
وَتَرَى ضِيقَ ٱلْمَسْكَنِ فِي كُلِّ مَا يُحْسَنُ بِهِ إِلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَلَا يَكُونُ شَيْخٌ فِي بَيْتِكَ كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ. ٣٢ 32
And you will see distress in the dwelling place, in all that he does good with Israel. And there will not be an old man in your house all the days.
وَرَجُلٌ لَكَ لَا أَقْطَعُهُ مِنْ أَمَامِ مَذْبَحِي يَكُونُ لِإِكْلَالِ عَيْنَيْكَ وَتَذْوِيبِ نَفْسِكَ. وَجَمِيعُ ذُرِّيَّةِ بَيْتِكَ يَمُوتُونَ شُبَّانًا. ٣٣ 33
And the man of yours I do not cut off from my altar will be to cause his eyes to fail and to grieve his soul, and all the increase of your house will die by the sword of men.
وَهَذِهِ لَكَ عَلَامَةٌ تَأْتِي عَلَى ٱبْنَيْكَ حُفْنِي وَفِينَحَاسَ: فِي يَوْمٍ وَاحِدٍ يَمُوتَانِ كِلَاهُمَا. ٣٤ 34
"'This shall be the sign to you, that shall come on your two sons, on Hophni and Phinehas: in one day they shall both die.
وَأُقِيمُ لِنَفْسِي كَاهِنًا أَمِينًا يَعْمَلُ حَسَبَ مَا بِقَلْبِي وَنَفْسِي، وَأَبْنِي لَهُ بَيْتًا أَمِينًا فَيَسِيرُ أَمَامَ مَسِيحِي كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ. ٣٥ 35
I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in my heart and in my mind. I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before my anointed forever.
وَيَكُونُ أَنَّ كُلَّ مَنْ يَبْقَى فِي بَيْتِكَ يَأْتِي لِيَسْجُدَ لَهُ لِأَجْلِ قِطْعَةِ فِضَّةٍ وَرَغِيفِ خُبْزٍ، وَيَقُولُ: ضُمَّنِي إِلَى إِحْدَى وَظَائِفِ ٱلْكَهَنُوتِ لِآكُلَ كِسْرَةَ خُبْزٍ». ٣٦ 36
It shall happen, that everyone who is left in your house shall come and bow down to him for a piece of silver and a loaf of bread, and shall say, "Please put me into one of the priests' offices, that I may eat a morsel of bread."'"
