2 اخبار 10

وَذَهَبَ رَحُبْعَامُ إِلَى شَكِيمَ، لِأَنَّهُ جَاءَ إِلَى شَكِيمَ كُلُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ لِيُمَلِّكُوهُ. ١ 1
And Roboam came to Sychem: for all Israel came to Sychem to make him king.
وَلَمَّا سَمِعَ يَرُبْعَامُ بْنُ نَبَاطَ، وَهُوَ فيِ مِصْرَ حَيْثُ هَرَبَ مِنْ وَجْهِ سُلَيْمَانَ ٱلْمَلِكِ، رَجَعَ يَرُبْعَامُ مِنْ مِصْرَ. ٢ 2
And it came to pass when Jeroboam the son of Nabat heard [it], (now he was in Egypt, forasmuch as he had fled thither from the face of king Solomon, and Jeroboam dwelt in Egypt, ) that Jeroboam returned out of Egypt.
فَأَرْسَلُوا وَدَعَوْهُ، فَأَتَى يَرُبْعَامُ وَكُلُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَكَلَّمُوا رَحُبْعَامَ قَائِلِينَ: ٣ 3
And they sent and called him: and Jeroboam and all the congregation came to Roboam, saying,
«إِنَّ أَبَاكَ قَسَّى نِيرَنَا، فَٱلْآنَ خَفِّفْ مِنْ عُبُودِيَّةِ أَبِيكَ ٱلْقَاسِيَةِ وَمِنْ نِيرِهِ ٱلثَّقِيلِ ٱلَّذِي جَعَلَهُ عَلَيْنَا فَنَخْدِمَكَ». ٤ 4
Thy father made our yoke grievous: now then abate [somewhat] of thy father's grievous rule, and of his heavy yoke which he put upon us, and we will serve thee.
فَقَالَ لَهُمُ: «ٱرْجِعُوا إِلَيَّ بَعْدَ ثَلَاثَةِ أَيَّامٍ». فَذَهَبَ ٱلشَّعْبُ. ٥ 5
And he said to them, Go away for three days, and [then] come to me. So the people departed.
فَٱسْتَشَارَ ٱلْمَلِكُ رَحُبْعَامُ ٱلشُّيُوخَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَانُوا يَقِفُونَ أَمَامَ سُلَيْمَانَ أَبِيهِ وَهُوَ حَيٌّ قَائِلًا: «كَيْفَ تُشِيرُونَ أَنْ أَرُدَّ جَوَابًا عَلَى هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبِ؟» ٦ 6
And king Roboam assembled the elders that stood before his father Solomon in his life-time, saying, How do ye counsel [me] to return an answer to this people?
فَكَلَّمُوهُ قَائِلِينَ: «إِنْ كُنْتَ صَالِحًا نَحْوَ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبِ وَأَرْضَيْتَهُمْ وَكَلَّمْتَهُمْ كَلَامًا حَسَنًا، يَكُونُونَ لَكَ عَبِيدًا كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ». ٧ 7
And they spoke to him, saying, If thou wouldest this day befriend this people, and be kind to them, and speak to them good words, then will they be thy servants for ever.
فَتَرَكَ مَشُورَةَ ٱلشُّيُوخِ ٱلَّتِي أَشَارُوا بِهَا عَلَيْهِ، وَٱسْتَشَارَ ٱلْأَحْدَاثَ ٱلَّذِينَ نَشَأُوا مَعَهُ وَوَقَفُوا أَمَامَهُ، ٨ 8
But he forsook the advice of the old men, who took counsel with him, and he took counsel with the young men who had been brought up with him, who stood before him.
وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «بِمَاذَا تُشِيرُونَ أَنْتُمْ فَنَرُدَّ جَوَابًا عَلَى هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبِ ٱلَّذِينَ كَلَّمُونِي قَائِلِينَ: خَفِّفْ مِنَ ٱلنِّيرِ ٱلَّذِي جَعَلَهُ عَلَيْنَا أَبُوكَ؟» ٩ 9
And he said to them, What do ye advise that I should answer this people, who spoke to me, saying, Ease [somewhat] of the yoke which thy father laid upon us?
فَكَلَّمَهُ ٱلْأَحْدَاثُ ٱلَّذِينَ نَشَأُوا مَعَهُ قَائِلِينَ: «هَكَذَا تَقُولُ لِلشَّعْبِ ٱلَّذِينَ كَلَّمُوكَ قَائِلِينَ: إِنَّ أَبَاكَ ثَقَّلَ نِيرَنَا وَأَمَّا أَنْتَ فَخَفِّفْ عَنَّا، هَكَذَا تَقُولُ لَهُمْ: إِنَّ خِنْصَرِي أَغْلَظُ مِنْ مَتْنَيْ أَبِي. ١٠ 10
And the young men that had been brought up with him spoke to him, saying, Thus shalt thou speak to the people that spoke to thee, saying, Thy father made our yoke heavy, and do thou lighten [somewhat of it] from us; thus shalt thou say, My little finger [shall be] thicker than my father's loins.
وَٱلْآنَ أَبِي حَمَّلَكُمْ نِيرًا ثَقِيلًا وَأَنَا أَزِيدُ عَلَى نِيرِكُمْ. أَبِي أَدَّبَكُمْ بِٱلسِّيَاطِ وَأَمَّا أَنَا فَبِٱلْعَقَارِبِ». ١١ 11
And whereas my father chastised you with a heavy yoke, I will also add to your yoke: my father chastised you with whips, and I will chastise you with scorpions.
فَجَاءَ يَرُبْعَامُ وَجَمِيعُ ٱلشَّعْبِ إِلَى رَحُبْعَامَ فِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلثَّالِثِ كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ ٱلْمَلِكُ قَائِلًا: «ٱرْجِعُوا إِلَيَّ فِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلثَّالِثِ». ١٢ 12
And Jeroboam and all the people came to Roboam on the third day, as the king had spoken, saying, Return to me on the third day.
فَأَجَابَهُمُ ٱلْمَلِكُ بِقَسَاوَةٍ، وَتَرَكَ ٱلْمَلِكُ رَحُبْعَامُ مَشُورَةَ ٱلشُّيُوخِ، ١٣ 13
And the king answered harshly; and king Roboam forsook the counsel of the old men,
وَكَلَّمَهُمْ حَسَبَ مَشُورَةِ ٱلْأَحْدَاثِ قَائِلًا: «أَبِي ثَقَّلَ نِيرَكُمْ وَأَنَا أَزِيدُ عَلَيْهِ. أَبِي أَدَّبَكُمْ بِٱلسِّيَاطِ وَأَمَّا أَنَا فَبِالْعَقَارِبِ». ١٤ 14
and spoke to them according to the counsel of the young men, saying, My father made your yoke heavy, but I will add to it: my father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.
وَلَمْ يَسْمَعِ ٱلْمَلِكُ لِلشَّعْبِ، لِأَنَّ ٱلسَّبَبَ كَانَ مِنْ قِبَلِ ٱللهِ، لِكَيْ يُقِيمَ ٱلرَّبُّ كَلَامَهُ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ عَنْ يَدِ أَخِيَّا ٱلشِّيلُونِيِّ إِلَى يَرُبْعَامَ بْنِ نَبَاطَ. ١٥ 15
And the king hearkened not to the people, for there was a change [of their minds] from God, saying, The Lord has confirmed his word, which he spoke by the hand of Achia the Selonite concerning Jeroboam the son of Nabat, and [concerning] all Israel;
فَلَمَّا رَأَى كُلُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ أَنَّ ٱلْمَلِكَ لَمْ يَسْمَعْ لَهُمْ، جَاوَبَ ٱلشَّعْبُ ٱلْمَلِكَ قَائِلِينَ: «أَيُّ قِسْمٍ لَنَا فِي دَاوُدَ؟ وَلَا نَصِيبَ لَنَا فِي ٱبْنِ يَسَّى! كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ إِلَى خَيْمَتِهِ يَا إِسْرَائِيلُ. ٱلْآنَ ٱنْظُرْ إِلَى بَيْتِكَ يَادَاوُدُ». وَذَهَبَ كُلُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى خِيَامِهِمْ. ١٦ 16
for the king did not hearken to them. And the people answered the king, saying, What portion have we in David, or inheritance in the son of Jessae? to thy tents, O Israel: now see to thine own house, David. So all Israel went to their tents.
وَأَمَّا بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلسَّاكِنُونَ فِي مُدُنِ يَهُوذَا فَمَلَكَ عَلَيْهِمْ رَحُبْعَامُ. ١٧ 17
But the men of Israel, even those who dwelt in the cities of Juda, [remained] and made Roboam king over them.
ثُمَّ أَرْسَلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ رَحُبْعَامُ هَدُورَامَ ٱلَّذِي عَلَى ٱلتَّسْخِيرِ، فَرَجَمَهُ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ بِٱلْحِجَارَةِ فَمَاتَ. فَبَادَرَ ٱلْمَلِكُ رَحُبْعَامُ وَصَعِدَ إِلَى ٱلْمَرْكَبَةِ لِيَهْرُبَ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ، ١٨ 18
And king Roboam sent to them Adoniram that was over the tribute; and the children of Israel stoned him with stones, and he died. And king Roboam hasted to mount [his] chariot, to flee to Jerusalem.
فَعَصَى إِسْرَائِيلُ بَيْتَ دَاوُدَ إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ. ١٩ 19
So Israel rebelled against the house of David until this day.
