٢ أخبار 1

وَتَشَدَّدَ سُلَيْمَانُ بْنُ دَاوُدَ عَلَى مَمْلَكَتِهِ، وَكَانَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُهُ مَعَهُ وَعَظَّمَهُ جِدًّا. ١ 1
Solomon son of David was strengthened in his rule, and Yahweh his God was with him and made him very powerful.
وَكَلَّمَ سُلَيْمَانُ جَمِيعَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، رُؤَسَاءَ ٱلْأُلُوفِ وَٱلْمِئَاتِ وَٱلْقُضَاةَ وَكُلَّ رَئِيسٍ فِي كُلِّ إِسْرَائِيلَ رُؤُوسَ ٱلْآبَاءِ، ٢ 2
Solomon spoke to all Israel, to the commanders of thousands and of hundreds, and to the judges, and to every prince in all Israel, the heads of the fathers' houses.
فَذَهَبَ سُلَيْمَانُ وَكُلُّ ٱلْجَمَاعَةِ مَعَهُ إِلَى ٱلْمُرْتَفَعَةِ ٱلَّتِي فِي جِبْعُونَ، لِأَنَّهُ هُنَاكَ كَانَتْ خَيْمَةُ ٱلِٱجْتِمَاعِ، خَيْمَةُ ٱللهِ ٱلَّتِي عَمِلَهَا مُوسَى عَبْدُ ٱلرَّبِّ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ. ٣ 3
So Solomon and all the assembly with him went to the high place that was at Gibeon, for there was the tent of meeting of God, which Moses the servant of Yahweh, had made in the wilderness.
وَأَمَّا تَابُوتُ ٱللهِ فَأَصْعَدَهُ دَاوُدُ مِنْ قَرْيَةِ يَعَارِيمَ عِنْدَمَا هَيَّأَ لَهُ دَاوُدُ، لِأَنَّهُ نَصَبَ لَهُ خَيْمَةً فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ. ٤ 4
But David had brought up the ark of God from Kiriath Jearim to the place that he had prepared for it, for he had pitched a tent for it in Jerusalem.
وَمَذْبَحُ ٱلنُّحَاسِ ٱلَّذِي عَمِلَهُ بَصَلْئِيلُ بْنُ أُورِي بْنِ حُورَ، وَضَعَهُ أَمَامَ مَسْكَنِ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَطَلَبَ إِلَيْهِ سُلَيْمَانُ وَٱلْجَمَاعَةُ. ٥ 5
In addition, the bronze altar made by Bezalel son of Uri son of Hur was there before the tabernacle of Yahweh; Solomon and the assembly went to it.
وَأَصْعَدَ سُلَيْمَانُ هُنَاكَ عَلَى مَذْبَحِ ٱلنُّحَاسِ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّذِي كَانَ فِي خَيْمَةِ ٱلِٱجْتِمَاعِ، أَصْعَدَ عَلَيْهِ أَلْفَ مُحْرَقَةٍ. ٦ 6
Solomon went up there to the bronze altar before Yahweh, which was at the tent of meeting, and offered one thousand burnt offerings on it.
فِي تِلْكَ ٱللَّيْلَةِ تَرَاءَى ٱللهُ لِسُلَيْمَانَ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «ٱسْأَلْ مَاذَا أُعْطِيكَ». ٧ 7
God appeared to Solomon that night and said to him, “Ask! What should I give you?”
فَقَالَ سُلَيْمَانُ لِلهِ: «إِنَّكَ قَدْ فَعَلْتَ مَعَ دَاوُدَ أَبِي رَحْمَةً عَظِيمَةً وَمَلَّكْتَنِي مَكَانَهُ. ٨ 8
Solomon said to God, “You have shown great covenant faithfulness to David my father, and have made me king in his place.
فَٱلْآنَ أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلْإِلَهُ لِيَثْبُتْ كَلَامُكَ مَعَ دَاوُدَ أَبِي، لِأَنَّكَ قَدْ مَلَّكْتَنِي عَلَى شَعْبٍ كَثِيرٍ كَتُرَابِ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٩ 9
Now, Yahweh God, let your promise to David my father be carried out, for you have made me king over a people as numerous as the dust of the earth.
فَأَعْطِنِي ٱلْآنَ حِكْمَةً وَمَعْرِفَةً لِأَخْرُجَ أَمَامَ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبِ وَأَدْخُلَ، لِأَنَّهُ مَنْ يَقْدِرُ أَنْ يَحْكُمَ عَلَى شَعْبِكَ هَذَا ٱلْعَظِيمِ» ١٠ 10
Now give me wisdom and knowledge, so that I may lead this people, for who can judge your people, who are so many in number?”
فَقَالَ ٱللهُ لِسُلَيْمَانَ: «مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّ هَذَا كَانَ فِي قَلْبِكَ، وَلَمْ تَسْأَلْ غِنًى وَلَا أَمْوَالًا وَلَا كَرَامَةً وَلَا أَنْفُسَ مُبْغِضِيكَ، وَلَا سَأَلْتَ أَيَّامًا كَثِيرَةً، بَلْ إِنَّمَا سَأَلْتَ لِنَفْسِكَ حِكْمَةً وَمَعْرِفَةً تَحْكُمُ بِهِمَا عَلَى شَعْبِي ٱلَّذِي مَلَّكْتُكَ عَلَيْهِ، ١١ 11
God said to Solomon, “Because this was in your heart, and because you have not asked for riches, wealth, or honor, nor for the life of those who hate you, nor for long life for yourself, but you have asked for wisdom and knowledge for yourself, so that you might rule my people, over whom I have made you king, and this is what I will do.
قَدْ أَعْطَيْتُكَ حِكْمَةً وَمَعْرِفَةً، وَأُعْطِيكَ غِنًى وَأَمْوَالًا وَكَرَامَةً لَمْ يَكُنْ مِثْلُهَا لِلْمُلُوكِ ٱلَّذِينَ قَبْلَكَ، وَلَا يَكُونُ مِثْلُهَا لِمَنْ بَعْدَكَ». ١٢ 12
I will now give you wisdom and knowledge. I will also give you riches, wealth, and honor, as none of the kings had before you, and none after you will have.”
فَجَاءَ سُلَيْمَانُ مِنَ ٱلْمُرْتَفَعَةِ ٱلَّتِي فِي جِبْعُونَ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ مِنْ أَمَامِ خَيْمَةِ ٱلِٱجْتِمَاعِ وَمَلَكَ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ. ١٣ 13
So Solomon came to Jerusalem from the high place that was at Gibeon, from before the tent of meeting; he reigned over Israel.
وَجَمَعَ سُلَيْمَانُ مَرْكَبَاتٍ وَفُرْسَانًا، فَكَانَ لَهُ أَلْفٌ وَأَرْبَعُ مِئَةِ مَرْكَبَةٍ وَٱثْنَا عَشَرَ أَلْفَ فَارِسٍ، فَجَعَلَهَا فِي مُدُنِ ٱلْمَرْكَبَاتِ وَمَعَ ٱلْمَلِكِ فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ. ١٤ 14
Solomon gathered chariots and horsemen, and he had 1,400 chariots and twelve thousand horsemen that he placed in the chariot cities, and with himself, the king in Jerusalem.
وَجَعَلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ ٱلْفِضَّةَ وَٱلذَّهَبَ فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ مِثْلَ ٱلْحِجَارَةِ، وَجَعَلَ ٱلْأَرْزَ كَٱلْجُمَّيْزِ ٱلَّذِي فِي ٱلسَّهْلِ فِي ٱلْكَثْرَةِ. ١٥ 15
The king made silver and gold as common in Jerusalem as the stones, and he made cedar wood as common as the sycamore trees that are in the lowlands.
وَكَانَ مُخْرَجُ ٱلْخَيْلِ ٱلَّتِي لِسُلَيْمَانَ مِنْ مِصْرَ. وَجَمَاعَةُ تُجَّارِ ٱلْمَلِكِ أَخَذُوا جَلِيبَةً بِثَمَنٍ، ١٦ 16
As for the importation of horses from Egypt and Kue for Solomon, his merchants bought them from Kue at a price.
فَأَصْعَدُوا وَأَخْرَجُوا مِنْ مِصْرَ ٱلْمَرْكَبَةَ بِسِتِّ مِئَةِ شَاقِلٍ مِنَ ٱلْفِضَّةِ، وَٱلْفَرَسَ بِمِئَةٍ وَخَمْسِينَ، وَهَكَذَا لِجَمِيعِ مُلُوكِ ٱلْحِثِّيِّينَ وَمُلُوكِ أَرَامَ كَانُوا يُخْرِجُونَ عَنْ يَدِهِمْ. ١٧ 17
They imported a chariot from Egypt for six hundred shekels of silver, and a horse for 150 shekels. They also exported them to the kings of the Hittites and the Arameans.
