2 اخبار 24

كَانَ يُوآشُ ٱبْنَ سَبْعِ سِنِينَ حِينَ مَلَكَ، وَمَلَكَ أَرْبَعِينَ سَنَةً فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ، وَٱسْمُ أُمِّهِ ظَبْيَةُ مِنْ بِئْرِ سَبْعٍ. ١ 1
Joash was seven years old when he began to reign; and he reigned forty years in Jerusalem: and his mother's name was Zibiah, of Beersheba.
وَعَمِلَ يُوآشُ ٱلْمُسْتَقِيمَ فِي عَيْنَيِ ٱلرَّبِّ كُلَّ أَيَّامِ يَهُويَادَاعَ ٱلْكَاهِنِ. ٢ 2
Joash did that which was right in the eyes of Jehovah all the days of Jehoiada the priest.
وَٱتَّخَذَ يَهُويَادَاعُ لَهُ ٱمْرَأَتَيْنِ فَوَلَدَ بَنِينَ وَبَنَاتٍ. ٣ 3
Jehoiada took for him two wives; and he became the father of sons and daughters.
وَحَدَثَ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ أَنَّهُ كَانَ فِي قَلْبِ يُوآشَ أَنْ يُجَدِّدَ بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٤ 4
It happened after this, that Joash intended to restore the house of Jehovah.
فَجَمَعَ ٱلْكَهَنَةَ وَٱللَّاوِيِّينَ وَقَالَ لَهُمُ: «ٱخْرُجُوا إِلَى مُدُنِ يَهُوذَا وَٱجْمَعُوا مِنْ جَمِيعِ إِسْرَائِيلَ فِضَّةً لِأَجْلِ تَرْمِيمِ بَيْتِ إِلَهِكُمْ مِنْ سَنَةٍ إِلَى سَنَةٍ، وَبَادِرُوا أَنْتُمْ إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْأَمْرِ». فَلَمْ يُبَادِرِ ٱللَّاوِيُّونَ. ٥ 5
He gathered together the priests and the Levites, and said to them, "Go out to the cities of Judah, and gather money to repair the house of your God from all Israel from year to year. See that you expedite this matter." However the Levites did not do it right away.
فَدَعَا ٱلْمَلِكُ يَهُويَادَاعَ ٱلرَّأْسَ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «لِمَاذَا لَمْ تَطْلُبْ مِنَ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ أَنْ يَأْتُوا مِنْ يَهُوذَا وَأُورُشَلِيمَ بِجِزْيَةِ مُوسَى عَبْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ وَجَمَاعَةِ إِسْرَائِيلَ لِخَيْمَةِ ٱلشَّهَادَةِ؟ ٦ 6
The king called for Jehoiada the chief, and said to him, "Why haven't you required of the Levites to bring in the tax of Moses the servant of Jehovah, and of the assembly of Israel, out of Judah and out of Jerusalem, for the tent of the testimony?"
لِأَنَّ بَنِي عَثَلْيَا ٱلْخَبِيثَةِ قَدْ هَدَمُوا بَيْتَ ٱللهِ، وَصَيَّرُوا كُلَّ أَقْدَاسِ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ لِلْبَعْلِيمِ». ٧ 7
For the sons of Athaliah, that wicked woman, had broken up God's house; and they also gave all the dedicated things of the house of Jehovah to the Baals.
وَأَمَرَ ٱلْمَلِكُ فَعَمِلُوا صُنْدُوقًا وَجَعَلُوهُ فِي بَابِ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ خَارِجًا، ٨ 8
So the king commanded, and they made a chest, and set it outside at the gate of the house of Jehovah.
وَنَادَوْا فِي يَهُوذَا وَأُورُشَلِيمَ بِأَنْ يَأْتُوا إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ بِجِزْيَةِ مُوسَى عَبْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلْمَفْرُوضَةِ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ. ٩ 9
They made a proclamation through Judah and Jerusalem, to bring in for Jehovah the tax that Moses the servant of God laid on Israel in the wilderness.
فَفَرِحَ كُلُّ ٱلرُّؤَسَاءِ وَكُلُّ ٱلشَّعْبِ وَأَدْخَلُوا وَأَلْقَوْا فِي ٱلصُّنْدُوقِ حَتَّى ٱمْتَلَأَ. ١٠ 10
And all the leaders and all the people rejoiced, and brought in, and threw it into the chest, until it was full.
وَحِينَمَا كَانَ يُؤْتَى بِٱلصُّنْدُوقِ إِلَى وَكَالَةِ ٱلْمَلِكِ بِيَدِ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ، عِنْدَمَا يَرَوْنَ أَنَّ ٱلْفِضَّةَ قَدْ كَثُرَتْ، كَانَ يَأْتِي كَاتِبُ ٱلْمَلِكِ وَوَكِيلُ ٱلْكَاهِنِ ٱلرَّأْسِ وَيُفْرِغَانِ ٱلصُّنْدُوقَ، ثُمَّ يَحْمِلَانِهِ وَيَرُدَّانِهِ إِلَى مَكَانِهِ. هَكَذَا كَانُوا يَفْعَلُونَ يَوْمًا فَيَوْمًا، حَتَّى جَمَعُوا فِضَّةً بِكَثْرَةٍ. ١١ 11
It was so, that whenever the chest was brought to the king's officers by the hand of the Levites, and when they saw that there was much money, the king's scribe and the chief priest's officer came and emptied the chest, and took it, and carried it to its place again. Thus they did day by day, and gathered money in abundance.
وَدَفَعَهَا ٱلْمَلِكُ وَيَهُويَادَاعُ لِعَامِلِي شُغْلِ خِدْمَةِ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَكَانُوا يَسْتَأْجِرُونَ نَحَّاتِينَ وَنَجَّارِينَ لِتَجْدِيدِ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَلِلْعَامِلِينَ فِي ٱلْحَدِيدِ وَٱلنُّحَاسِ أَيْضًا لِتَرْمِيمِ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ١٢ 12
The king and Jehoiada gave it to such as did the work of the service of the house of Jehovah; and they hired masons and carpenters to restore the house of Jehovah, and also such as worked iron and bronze to repair the house of Jehovah.
فَعَمِلَ عَامِلُو ٱلشُّغْلِ وَنَجَحَ ٱلْعَمَلُ بِأَيْدِيهِمْ، وَأَقَامُوا بَيْتَ ٱللهِ عَلَى رَسْمِهِ وَثَبَّتُوهُ. ١٣ 13
So the workmen worked, and the work of repairing went forward in their hands, and they set up God's house in its state, and strengthened it.
وَلَمَّا أَكْمَلُوا أَتَوْا إِلَى مَا بَيْنَ يَدَيِ ٱلْمَلِكِ وَيَهُويَادَاعَ بِبَقِيَّةِ ٱلْفِضَّةِ وَعَمِلُوهَا آنِيَةً لِبَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ، آنِيَةَ خِدْمَةٍ وَإِصْعَادٍ وَصُحُونًا وَآنِيَةَ ذَهَبٍ وَفِضَّةٍ. وَكَانُوا يُصْعِدُونَ مُحْرَقَاتٍ فِي بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ دَائِمًا كُلَّ أَيَّامِ يَهُويَادَاعَ. ١٤ 14
When they had made an end, they brought the rest of the money before the king and Jehoiada, of which were made vessels for the house of Jehovah, even vessels with which to minister and to offer, and spoons, and vessels of gold and silver. They offered burnt offerings in the house of Jehovah continually all the days of Jehoiada.
وَشَاخَ يَهُويَادَاعُ وَشَبِعَ مِنَ ٱلْأَيَّامِ وَمَاتَ. كَانَ ٱبْنَ مِئَةٍ وَثَلَاثِينَ سَنَةً عِنْدَ وَفَاتِهِ. ١٥ 15
But Jehoiada grew old and was full of days, and he died; one hundred thirty years old was he when he died.
فَدَفَنُوهُ فِي مَدِينَةِ دَاوُدَ مَعَ ٱلْمُلُوكِ لِأَنَّهُ عَمِلَ خَيْرًا فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ وَمَعَ ٱللهِ وَبَيْتِهِ. ١٦ 16
They buried him in the City of David among the kings, because he had done good in Israel, and toward God and his house.
وَبَعْدَ مَوْتِ يَهُويَادَاعَ جَاءَ رُؤَسَاءُ يَهُوذَا وَسَجَدُوا لِلْمَلِكِ. حِينَئِذٍ سَمِعَ ٱلْمَلِكُ لَهُمْ. ١٧ 17
Now after the death of Jehoiada the leaders of Judah came and paid homage to the king. And the king listened to them.
وَتَرَكُوا بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِ آبَائِهِمْ وَعَبَدُوا ٱلسَّوَارِيَ وَٱلْأَصْنَامَ، فَكَانَ غَضَبٌ عَلَى يَهُوذَا وَأُورُشَلِيمَ لِأَجْلِ إِثْمِهِمْ هَذَا. ١٨ 18
They forsook the house of Jehovah, the God of their fathers, and served the Asherim and the idols: and wrath came on Judah and Jerusalem for this their guiltiness.
وَأَرْسَلَ إِلَيْهِمْ أَنْبِيَاءَ لِإِرْجَاعِهِمْ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ، وَأَشْهَدُوا عَلَيْهِمْ فَلَمْ يُصْغُوا. ١٩ 19
Yet he sent prophets to them, to bring them again to Jehovah; and they testified against them: but they would not give ear.
وَلَبِسَ رُوحُ ٱللهِ زَكَرِيَّا بْنَ يَهُويَادَاعَ ٱلْكَاهِنَ فَوَقَفَ فَوْقَ ٱلشَّعْبِ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «هَكَذَا يَقُولُ ٱللهُ: لِمَاذَا تَتَعَدَّوْنَ وَصَايَا ٱلرَّبِّ فَلَا تُفْلِحُونَ؟ لِأَنَّكُمْ تَرَكْتُمُ ٱلرَّبَّ قَدْ تَرَكَكُمْ». ٢٠ 20
The Spirit of God came on Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest; and he stood above the people, and said to them, "Thus says God, 'Why do you disobey the commandments of Jehovah, so that you can't prosper? Because you have forsaken Jehovah, he has also forsaken you.'"
فَفَتَنُوا عَلَيْهِ وَرَجَمُوهُ بِحِجَارَةٍ بِأَمْرِ ٱلْمَلِكِ فِي دَارِ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٢١ 21
They conspired against him, and stoned him with stones at the commandment of the king in the court of the house of Jehovah.
وَلَمْ يَذْكُرْ يُوآشُ ٱلْمَلِكُ ٱلْمَعْرُوفَ ٱلَّذِي عَمِلَهُ يَهُويَادَاعُ أَبُوهُ مَعَهُ، بَلْ قَتَلَ ٱبْنَهُ. وَعِنْدَ مَوْتِهِ قَالَ: «ٱلرَّبُّ يَنْظُرُ وَيُطَالِبُ». ٢٢ 22
Thus Joash the king did not remember the kindness which Jehoiada his father had done to him, but killed his son. When he died, he said, "May Jehovah look at it, and repay it."
وَفِي مَدَارِ ٱلسَّنَةِ صَعِدَ عَلَيْهِ جَيْشُ أَرَامَ وَأَتَوْا إِلَى يَهُوذَا وَأُورُشَلِيمَ وَأَهْلَكُوا كُلَّ رُؤَسَاءِ ٱلشَّعْبِ مِنَ ٱلشَّعْبِ، وَجَمِيعَ غَنِيمَتِهِمْ أَرْسَلُوهَا إِلَى مَلِكِ دِمَشْقَ. ٢٣ 23
It happened at the end of the year, that the army of the Arameans came up against him. And they came to Judah and Jerusalem, and destroyed all the leaders of the people from among the people, and sent all their spoil to the king in Damascus.
لِأَنَّ جَيْشَ أَرَامَ جَاءَ بِشِرْذِمَةٍ قَلِيلَةٍ، وَدَفَعَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِيَدِهِمْ جَيْشًا كَثِيرًا جِدًّا لِأَنَّهُمْ تَرَكُوا ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَ آبَائِهِمْ. فَأَجْرَوْا قَضَاءً عَلَى يُوآشَ. ٢٤ 24
For the army of the Arameans came with a small company of men; and Jehovah delivered a very great army into their hand, because they had forsaken Jehovah, the God of their fathers. So they executed judgment on Joash.
وَعِنْدَ ذَهَابِهِمْ عَنْهُ، لِأَنَّهُمْ تَرَكُوهُ بِأَمْرَاضٍ كَثِيرَةٍ، فَتَنَ عَلَيْهِ عَبِيدُهُ مِنْ أَجْلِ دِمَاءِ بَنِي يَهُويَادَاعَ ٱلْكَاهِنِ، وَقَتَلُوهُ عَلَى سَرِيرِهِ فَمَاتَ. فَدَفَنُوهُ فِي مَدِينَةِ دَاوُدَ، وَلَمْ يَدْفِنُوهُ فِي قُبُورِ ٱلْمُلُوكِ. ٢٥ 25
When they were departed for him (for they left him very sick), his own servants conspired against him for the blood of the son of Jehoiada the priest, and killed him on his bed, and he died; and they buried him in the City of David, but they did not bury him in the tombs of the kings.
وَهَذَانِ هُمَا ٱلْفَاتِنَانِ عَلَيْهِ: زَابَادُ بْنُ شِمْعَةَ ٱلْعَمُّونِيَّةِ، وَيَهُوزَابَادُ بْنُ شِمْرِيتَ ٱلْمُوآبِيَّةِ. ٢٦ 26
These are those who conspired against him: Zabad the son of Shimeath the Ammonitess, and Jehozabad the son of Shimrith the Moabitess.
وَأَمَّا بَنُوهُ وَكَثْرَةُ مَا حُمِلَ عَلَيْهِ وَمَرَمَّةُ بَيْتِ ٱللهِ، هَا هِيَ مَكْتُوبَةٌ فِي مِدْرَسِ سِفْرِ ٱلْمُلُوكِ. وَمَلَكَ أَمَصْيَا ٱبْنُهُ عِوَضًا عَنْهُ ٢٧ 27
Now concerning his sons, and the many oracles against him, and the rebuilding of God's house, look, they are written in the commentary of the book of the kings. Amaziah his son reigned in his place.
