1 صموئيل 8

وَكَانَ لَمَّا شَاخَ صَمُوئِيلُ أَنَّهُ جَعَلَ بَنِيهِ قُضَاةً لِإِسْرَائِيلَ. ١ 1
It happened, when Samuel was old, that he made his sons judges over Israel.
وَكَانَ ٱسْمُ ٱبْنِهِ ٱلْبِكْرِ يُوئِيلَ، وَٱسْمُ ثَانِيهِ أَبِيَّا. كَانَا قَاضِيَيْنِ فِي بِئْرِ سَبْعٍ. ٢ 2
Now the name of his firstborn was Joel; and the name of his second, Abijah: they were judges in Beersheba.
وَلَمْ يَسْلُكِ ٱبْنَاهُ فِي طَرِيقِهِ، بَلْ مَالَا وَرَاءَ ٱلْمَكْسَبِ، وَأَخَذَا رَشْوَةً وَعَوَّجَا ٱلْقَضَاءَ. ٣ 3
His sons did not walk in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted justice.
فَٱجْتَمَعَ كُلُّ شُيُوخِ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَجَاءُوا إِلَى صَمُوئِيلَ إِلَى ٱلرَّامَةِ ٤ 4
Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel to Ramah;
وَقَالُوا لَهُ: «هُوَذَا أَنْتَ قَدْ شِخْتَ، وَٱبْنَاكَ لَمْ يَسِيرَا فِي طَرِيقِكَ. فَٱلْآنَ ٱجْعَلْ لَنَا مَلِكًا يَقْضِي لَنَا كَسَائِرِ ٱلشُّعُوبِ». ٥ 5
and they said to him, "Look, you are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations."
فَسَاءَ ٱلْأَمْرُ فِي عَيْنَيْ صَمُوئِيلَ إِذْ قَالُوا: «أَعْطِنَا مَلِكًا يَقْضِي لَنَا». وَصَلَّى صَمُوئِيلُ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ. ٦ 6
But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, "Give us a king to judge us." Samuel prayed to Jehovah.
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِصَمُوئِيلَ: «ٱسْمَعْ لِصَوْتِ ٱلشَّعْبِ فِي كُلِّ مَا يَقُولُونَ لَكَ، لِأَنَّهُمْ لَمْ يَرْفُضُوكَ أَنْتَ بَلْ إِيَّايَ رَفَضُوا حَتَّى لَا أَمْلِكَ عَلَيْهِمْ. ٧ 7
Jehovah said to Samuel, "Listen to the voice of the people in all that they tell you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected me, that I should not be king over them.
حَسَبَ كُلِّ أَعْمَالِهِمِ ٱلَّتِي عَمِلُوا مِنْ يَوْمِ أَصْعَدْتُهُمْ مِنْ مِصْرَ إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ وَتَرَكُونِي وَعَبَدُوا آلِهَةً أُخْرَى، هَكَذَا هُمْ عَامِلُونَ بِكَ أَيْضًا. ٨ 8
According to all the works which they have done to me since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even to this day, in that they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also to you.
فَٱلْآنَ ٱسْمَعْ لِصَوْتِهِمْ. وَلَكِنْ أَشْهِدَنَّ عَلَيْهِمْ وَأَخْبِرْهُمْ بِقَضَاءِ ٱلْمَلِكِ ٱلَّذِي يَمْلِكُ عَلَيْهِمْ». ٩ 9
Now therefore listen to their voice: however you shall protest solemnly to them, and shall show them the way of the king who shall reign over them."
فَكَلَّمَ صَمُوئِيلُ ٱلشَّعْبَ ٱلَّذِينَ طَلَبُوا مِنْهُ مَلِكًا بِجَمِيعِ كَلَامِ ٱلرَّبِّ، ١٠ 10
Samuel told all the words of Jehovah to the people who asked of him a king.
وَقَالَ: «هَذَا يَكُونُ قَضَاءُ ٱلْمَلِكِ ٱلَّذِي يَمْلِكُ عَلَيْكُمْ: يَأْخُذُ بَنِيكُمْ وَيَجْعَلُهُمْ لِنَفْسِهِ، لِمَرَاكِبِهِ وَفُرْسَانِهِ، فَيَرْكُضُونَ أَمَامَ مَرَاكِبِهِ. ١١ 11
He said, "This will be the way of the king who shall reign over you: he will take your sons, and appoint them to him, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and they shall run before his chariots.
وَيَجْعَلُ لِنَفْسِهِ رُؤَسَاءَ أُلُوفٍ وَرُؤَسَاءَ خَمَاسِينَ، فَيَحْرُثُونَ حَرَاثَتَهُ وَيَحْصُدُونَ حَصَادَهُ، وَيَعْمَلُونَ عُدَّةَ حَرْبِهِ وَأَدَوَاتِ مَرَاكِبِهِ. ١٢ 12
And he will appoint for himself commanders of thousands, and commanders of fifties; and he will assign some to plow his ground, and to reap his harvest, and gather his vintage, and to make his implements of war, and the equipment of his chariots.
وَيَأْخُذُ بَنَاتِكُمْ عَطَّارَاتٍ وَطَبَّاخَاتٍ وَخَبَّازَاتٍ. ١٣ 13
He will take your daughters to be perfumers, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.
وَيَأْخُذُ حُقُولَكُمْ وَكُرُومَكُمْ وَزَيْتُونَكُمْ، أَجْوَدَهَا وَيُعْطِيهَا لِعَبِيدِهِ. ١٤ 14
He will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your olive groves, even their best, and give them to his servants.
وَيُعَشِّرُ زُرُوعَكُمْ وَكُرُومَكُمْ، وَيُعْطِي لِخِصْيَانِهِ وَعَبِيدِهِ. ١٥ 15
He will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.
وَيَأْخُذُ عَبِيدَكُمْ وَجَوَارِيَكُمْ وَشُبَّانَكُمُ ٱلْحِسَانَ وَحَمِيرَكُمْ وَيَسْتَعْمِلُهُمْ لِشُغْلِهِ. ١٦ 16
He will take your male servants, and your female servants, and your best cattle, and your donkeys, and put them to his work.
وَيُعَشِّرُ غَنَمَكُمْ وَأَنْتُمْ تَكُونُونَ لَهُ عَبِيدًا. ١٧ 17
He will take the tenth of your flocks: and you shall be his servants.
فَتَصْرُخُونَ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ مِنْ وَجْهِ مَلِكِكُمُ ٱلَّذِي ٱخْتَرْتُمُوهُ لِأَنْفُسِكُمْ، فَلَا يَسْتَجِيبُ لَكُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ». ١٨ 18
You shall cry out in that day because of your king whom you shall have chosen for yourselves, and Jehovah will not answer you in that day."
فَأَبَى ٱلشَّعْبُ أَنْ يَسْمَعُوا لِصَوْتِ صَمُوئِيلَ، وَقَالُوا: «لَا بَلْ يَكُونُ عَلَيْنَا مَلِكٌ، ١٩ 19
But the people refused to listen to the voice of Samuel; and they said, "No; but we will have a king over us,
فَنَكُونُ نَحْنُ أَيْضًا مِثْلَ سَائِرِ ٱلشُّعُوبِ، وَيَقْضِي لَنَا مَلِكُنَا وَيَخْرُجُ أَمَامَنَا وَيُحَارِبُ حُرُوبَنَا». ٢٠ 20
that we also may be like all the nations, and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles."
فَسَمِعَ صَمُوئِيلُ كُلَّ كَلَامِ ٱلشَّعْبِ وَتَكَلَّمَ بِهِ فِي أُذُنَيِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٢١ 21
Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of Jehovah.
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِصَمُوئِيلَ: «ٱسْمَعْ لِصَوْتِهِمْ وَمَلِّكْ عَلَيْهِمْ مَلِكًا». فَقَالَ صَمُوئِيلُ لِرِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ: «ٱذْهَبُوا كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ إِلَى مَدِينَتِهِ». ٢٢ 22
Jehovah said to Samuel, "Listen to their voice, and make them a king." Samuel said to the men of Israel, "Every man go to his city."
