2 اخبار 15

وَكَانَ رُوحُ ٱللهِ عَلَى عَزَرْيَا بْنِ عُودِيدَ، ١ 1
The Spirit of God came on Azariah son of Oded.
فَخَرَجَ لِلِقَاءِ آسَا وَقَالَ لَهُ: «ٱسْمَعُوا لِي يَا آسَا وَجَمِيعَ يَهُوذَا وَبَنْيَامِينَ. ٱلرَّبُّ مَعَكُمْ مَا كُنْتُمْ مَعَهُ، وَإِنْ طَلَبْتُمُوهُ يُوجَدْ لَكُمْ، وَإِنْ تَرَكْتُمُوهُ يَتْرُكْكُمْ. ٢ 2
He went out to meet Asa and said to him, “Listen to me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin: Yahweh is with you, while you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will forsake you.
وَلِإِسْرَائِيلَ أَيَّامٌ كَثِيرَةٌ بِلَا إِلَهٍ حَقٍّ وَبِلَا كَاهِنٍ مُعَلِّمٍ وَبِلَا شَرِيعَةٍ. ٣ 3
Now for a long period, Israel was without the true God, without a teaching priest, and without the law.
وَلَكِنْ لَمَّا رَجَعُوا عِنْدَمَا تَضَايَقُوا إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَطَلَبُوهُ وُجِدَ لَهُمْ. ٤ 4
But when in their distress they turned to Yahweh, the God of Israel, and sought him, he was found by them.
وَفِي تِلْكَ ٱلْأَزْمَانِ لَمْ يَكُنْ أَمَانٌ لِلْخَارِجِ وَلَا لِلدَّاخِلِ، لِأَنَّ ٱضْطِرَابَاتٍ كَثِيرَةً كَانَتْ عَلَى كُلِّ سُكَّانِ ٱلْأَرَاضِي. ٥ 5
In those times there was no peace for him who traveled away, nor for him who traveled to here; instead, great troubles were on all the inhabitants of the lands.
فَأُفْنِيَتْ أُمَّةٌ بِأُمَّةٍ وَمَدِينَةٌ بِمَدِينَةٍ، لِأَنَّ ٱللهَ أَزْعَجَهُمْ بِكُلِّ ضِيقٍ. ٦ 6
They were broken in pieces, nation against nation, and city against city, for God troubled them with all kinds of suffering.
فَتَشَدَّدُوا أَنْتُمْ وَلَا تَرْتَخِ أَيْدِيكُمْ لِأَنَّ لِعَمَلِكُمْ أَجْرًا». ٧ 7
But be strong, and do not let your hands be weak, for your work will be rewarded.”
فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ آسَا هَذَا ٱلْكَلَامَ وَنُبُوَّةَ عُودِيدَ ٱلنَّبِيِّ، تَشَدَّدَ وَنَزَعَ ٱلرَّجَاسَاتِ مِنْ كُلِّ أَرْضِ يَهُوذَا وَبَنْيَامِينَ وَمِنَ ٱلْمُدُنِ ٱلَّتِي أَخَذَهَا مِنْ جَبَلِ أَفْرَايِمَ، وَجَدَّدَ مَذْبَحَ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّذِي أَمَامَ رِوَاقِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٨ 8
When Asa heard these words, the prophecy of Oded the prophet, he took courage and drove away the disgusting things from all the land of Judah and Benjamin, and from the cities that he had captured from the hill country of Ephraim, and he rebuilt Yahweh's altar, which was in front of the portico of Yahweh's house.
وَجَمَعَ كُلَّ يَهُوذَا وَبَنْيَامِينَ وَٱلْغُرَبَاءَ مَعَهُمْ مِنْ أَفْرَايِمَ وَمَنَسَّى وَمِنْ شِمْعُونَ، لِأَنَّهُمْ سَقَطُوا إِلَيْهِ مِنْ إِسْرَائِيلَ بِكَثْرَةٍ حِينَ رَأَوْا أَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَهُ مَعَهُ. ٩ 9
He gathered all Judah and Benjamin, and those who stayed with them—people from of Ephraim and Manasseh, and from Simeon. For they came from Israel to him in great numbers, when they saw that Yahweh his God was with him.
فَٱجْتَمَعُوا فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ فِي ٱلشَّهْرِ ٱلثَّالِثِ فِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلْخَامِسَةَ عَشَرَةَ لِمُلْكِ آسَا، ١٠ 10
So they gathered together at Jerusalem in the third month, in the fifteenth year of Asa's reign.
وَذَبَحُوا لِلرَّبِّ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ مِنَ ٱلْغَنِيمَةِ ٱلَّتِي جَلَبُوا سَبْعَ مِئَةٍ مِنَ ٱلْبَقَرِ، وَسَبْعَةَ آلَافٍ مِنَ ٱلضَّأْنِ. ١١ 11
They sacrificed to Yahweh in that day some of the plunder that they had brought: seven hundred oxen and seven thousand sheep and goats.
وَدَخَلُوا فِي عَهْدٍ أَنْ يَطْلُبُوا ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَ آبَائِهِمْ بِكُلِّ قُلُوبِهِمْ وَكُلِّ أَنْفُسِهِمْ. ١٢ 12
They entered into a covenant to seek Yahweh, the God of their ancestors, with all their heart and with all their soul.
حَتَّى إِنَّ كُلَّ مَنْ لَا يَطْلُبُ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَ إِسْرَائِيلَ يُقْتَلُ مِنَ ٱلصَّغِيرِ إِلَى ٱلْكَبِيرِ، مِنَ ٱلرِّجَالِ وَٱلنِّسَاءِ. ١٣ 13
They agreed that whoever refused to seek Yahweh, the God of Israel, should be put to death, whether the person was small or great, whether man or woman.
وَحَلَفُوا لِلرَّبِّ بِصَوْتٍ عَظِيمٍ وَهُتَافٍ وَبِأَبْوَاقٍ وَقُرُونٍ. ١٤ 14
They swore to Yahweh with a loud voice, with shouting, and with trumpets and horns.
وَفَرِحَ كُلُّ يَهُوذَا مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱلْحَلْفِ، لِأَنَّهُمْ حَلَفُوا بِكُلِّ قُلُوبِهِمْ، وَطَلَبُوهُ بِكُلِّ رِضَاهُمْ فَوُجِدَ لَهُمْ، وَأَرَاحَهُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ مِنْ كُلِّ جِهَةٍ. ١٥ 15
All Judah rejoiced at the oath, for they had sworn with all their heart, and they sought God with their whole desire, and he was found by them. Yahweh gave them peace all around them.
حَتَّى إِنَّ مَعْكَةَ أُمَّ آسَا ٱلْمَلِكِ خَلَعَهَا مِنْ أَنْ تَكُونَ مَلِكَةً لِأَنَّهَا عَمِلَتْ لِسَارِيَةٍ تِمْثَالًا، وَقَطَعَ آسَا تِمْثَالَهَا وَدَقَّهُ وَأَحْرَقَهُ فِي وَادِي قَدْرُونَ. ١٦ 16
He also removed Maacah, his grandmother, from being queen, because she had made a disgusting figure out of an Asherah pole. Asa cut down the disgusting figure, ground it to dust and burned it at the brook Kidron.
وَأَمَّا ٱلْمُرْتَفَعَاتُ فَلَمْ تُنْزَعْ مِنْ إِسْرَائِيلَ. إِلَّا أَنَّ قَلْبَ آسَا كَانَ كَامِلًا كُلَّ أَيَّامِهِ. ١٧ 17
But the high places were not taken out of Israel. Nevertheless, Asa's heart was completely devoted all his days.
وَأَدْخَلَ أَقْدَاسَ أَبِيهِ وَأَقْدَاسَهُ إِلَى بَيْتِ ٱللهِ مِنَ ٱلْفِضَّةِ وَٱلذَّهَبِ وَٱلْآنِيَةِ. ١٨ 18
He brought into the house of God the silver and gold and the utensils that he and his father had dedicated for that purpose.
وَلَمْ تَكُنْ حَرْبٌ إِلَى ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلْخَامِسَةِ وَٱلثَّلَاثِينَ لِمُلْكِ آسَا. ١٩ 19
There was no more war until the thirty-fifth year of Asa's reign.
