2 اخبار 7

وَلَمَّا ٱنْتَهَى سُلَيْمَانُ مِنَ ٱلصَّلَاةِ، نَزَلَتِ ٱلنَّارُ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَأَكَلَتِ ٱلْمُحْرَقَةَ وَٱلذَّبَائِحَ، وَمَلَأَ مَجْدُ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلْبَيْتَ. ١ 1
And when Solomon had finished praying, then the fire came down from heaven, and devoured the whole burnt offerings and the sacrifices; and the glory of the Lord filled the house.
وَلَمْ يَسْتَطِعِ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ أَنْ يَدْخُلُوا بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ لِأَنَّ مَجْدَ ٱلرَّبِّ مَلَأَ بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٢ 2
And the priests could not enter into the house of the Lord at that time, for the glory of the Lord filled the house.
وَكَانَ جَمِيعُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ يَنْظُرُونَ عِنْدَ نُزُولِ ٱلنَّارِ وَمَجْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ عَلَى ٱلْبَيْتِ، وَخَرُّوا عَلَى وُجُوهِهِمْ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ عَلَى ٱلْبَلَاطِ ٱلْمُجَزَّعِ، وَسَجَدُوا وَحَمَدُوا ٱلرَّبَّ لِأَنَّهُ صَالِحٌ وَإِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ رَحْمَتُهُ. ٣ 3
And all the children of Israel saw the fire descending, and the glory of the Lord was upon the house: and they fell upon their face to the ground on the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the Lord; for [it is] good [to do so], because his mercy [endures] for ever.
ثُمَّ إِنَّ ٱلْمَلِكَ وَكُلَّ ٱلشَّعْبِ ذَبَحُوا ذَبَائِحَ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٤ 4
And the king and all the people [were] offering sacrifices before the Lord.
وَذَبَحَ ٱلْمَلِكُ سُلَيْمَانُ ذَبَائِحَ مِنَ ٱلْبَقَرِ ٱثْنَيْنِ وَعِشْرِينَ أَلْفًا، وَمِنَ ٱلْغَنَمِ مِئَةً وَعِشْرِينَ أَلْفًا، وَدَشَّنَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَكُلُّ ٱلشَّعْبِ بَيْتَ ٱللهِ. ٥ 5
And king Solomon offered a sacrifice of calves twenty and two thousand, of sheep a hundred and twenty thousand: so the king and all the people dedicated the house of God.
وَكَانَ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ وَاقِفِينَ عَلَى مَحَارِسِهِمْ، وَٱللَّاوِيُّونَ بِآلَاتِ غِنَاءِ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّتِي عَمِلَهَا دَاوُدُ ٱلْمَلِكُ لِأَجْلِ حَمْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ «لِأَنَّ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ رَحْمَتَهُ» حِينَ سَبَّحَ دَاوُدُ بِهَا، وَٱلْكَهَنَةُ يَنْفُخُونَ فِي ٱلْأَبْوَاقِ مُقَابِلَهُمْ، وَكُلُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَاقِفٌ. ٦ 6
And the priests were standing at their watches, and the Levites with instruments of music of the Lord, belonging to king David, to give thanks before the Lord, for his mercy [endures] for ever, with the hymns of David, by their ministry: and the priests were blowing the trumpets before them, and all Israel standing.
وَقَدَّسَ سُلَيْمَانُ وَسَطَ ٱلدَّارِ ٱلَّتِي أَمَامَ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ، لِأَنَّهُ قَرَّبَ هُنَاكَ ٱلْمُحْرَقَاتِ وَشَحْمَ ذَبَائِحِ ٱلسَّلَامَةِ، لِأَنَّ مَذْبَحَ ٱلنُّحَاسِ ٱلَّذِي عَمِلَهُ سُلَيْمَانُ لَمْ يَكْفِ لِأَنْ يَسَعَ ٱلْمُحْرَقَاتِ وَٱلتَّقْدِمَاتِ وَٱلشَّحْمَ. ٧ 7
And Solomon consecrated the middle of the court that was in the house of the Lord: for he offered there the whole burnt offerings and the fat of the peace-offerings, for the brazen altar which Solomon had made was not sufficient to receive the whole burnt offerings, and the meat-offerings, and the fat.
وَعَيَّدَ سُلَيْمَانُ ٱلْعِيدَ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْوَقْتِ سَبْعَةَ أَيَّامٍ، وَكُلُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَعَهُ وَجُمْهُورٌ عَظِيمٌ جِدًّا مِنْ مَدْخَلِ حَمَاةَ إِلَى وَادِي مِصْرَ. ٨ 8
And Solomon kept the feast at that time seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great assembly, from the entering in of Aemath, and as far as the river of Egypt.
وَعَمِلُوا فِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلثَّامِنِ ٱعْتِكَافًا لِأَنَّهُمْ عَمِلُوا تَدْشِينَ ٱلْمَذْبَحِ سَبْعَةَ أَيَّامٍ، وَٱلْعِيدَ سَبْعَةَ أَيَّامٍ. ٩ 9
And on the eighth day he kept a solemn assembly: for he kept a feast of seven days as the dedication of the altar.
وَفِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلثَّالِثِ وَٱلْعِشْرِينَ مِنَ ٱلشَّهْرِ ٱلسَّابِعِ صَرَفَ ٱلشَّعْبَ إِلَى خِيَامِهِمْ فَرِحِينَ وَطَيِّبِي ٱلْقُلُوبِ لِأَجْلِ ٱلْخَيْرِ ٱلَّذِي عَمِلَهُ ٱلرَّبُّ لِدَاوُدَ وَلِسُلَيْمَانَ وَلِإِسْرَائِيلَ شَعْبِهِ. ١٠ 10
And on the twenty-third day of the seventh month he dismissed the people to their tents, rejoicing, and with a glad heart because of the good deeds which the Lord had done to David, and to Solomon, and to Israel his people.
وَأَكْمَلَ سُلَيْمَانُ بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ وَبَيْتَ ٱلْمَلِكِ. وَكُلَّ مَا خَطَرَ بِبَالِ سُلَيْمَانَ أَنْ يَعْمَلَهُ فِي بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ وَفِي بَيْتِهِ نَجَحَ فِيهِ. ١١ 11
So Solomon finished the house of the Lord, and the king's house: and in whatever Solomon wished in his heart to do in the house of the Lord and in his own house, he prospered.
وَتَرَاءَى ٱلرَّبُّ لِسُلَيْمَانَ لَيْلًا وَقَالَ لَهُ: «قَدْ سَمِعْتُ صَلَاتَكَ، وَٱخْتَرْتُ هَذَا ٱلْمَكَانَ لِي بَيْتَ ذَبِيحَةٍ. ١٢ 12
And the Lord appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him, I have heard your prayer, and I have chosen this place to myself for a house of sacrifice.
إِنْ أَغْلَقْتُ ٱلسَّمَاءَ وَلَمْ يَكُنْ مَطَرٌ، وَإِنْ أَمَرْتُ ٱلْجَرَادَ أَنْ يَأْكُلَ ٱلْأَرْضَ، وَإِنْ أَرْسَلْتُ وَبَأً عَلَى شَعْبِي، ١٣ 13
If I should restrain the heaven and there should be no rain, and if I should command the locust to devour the trees, and if I should send pestilence upon my people;
فَإِذَا تَوَاضَعَ شَعْبِي ٱلَّذِينَ دُعِيَ ٱسْمِي عَلَيْهِمْ وَصَلَّوْا وَطَلَبُوا وَجْهِي، وَرَجَعُوا عَنْ طُرُقِهِمِ ٱلرَّدِيةِ فَإِنَّنِي أَسْمَعُ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَأَغْفِرُ خَطِيَّتَهُمْ وَأُبْرِئُ أَرْضَهُمْ. ١٤ 14
then if my people, on whom my name is called, should repent, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their evil ways, I also will hear from heaven, and I will be merciful to their sins, and I will heal their land.
اَلْآنَ عَيْنَايَ تَكُونَانِ مَفْتُوحَتَيْنِ، وَأُذُنَايَ مُصْغِيَتَيْنِ إِلَى صَلَاةِ هَذَا ٱلْمَكَانِ. ١٥ 15
And now my eyes shall be open, and my ears attentive to the prayer of this place.
وَٱلْآنَ قَدِ ٱخْتَرْتُ وَقَدَّسْتُ هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتَ لِيَكُونَ ٱسْمِي فِيهِ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ، وَتَكُونُ عَيْنَايَ وَقَلْبِي هُنَاكَ كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ. ١٦ 16
And now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that my name should be there for ever: and my eyes and my heart shall be there always.
وَأَنْتَ إِنْ سَلَكْتَ أَمَامِي كَمَا سَلَكَ دَاوُدُ أَبُوكَ، وَعَمِلْتَ حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا أَمَرْتُكَ بِهِ، وَحَفِظْتَ فَرَائِضِي وَأَحْكَامِي، ١٧ 17
And if you will walk before me as David your father [did], and will do according to all that I have commanded you, and will keep my ordinances and my judgements;
فَإِنِّي أُثَبِّتُ كُرْسِيَّ مُلْكِكَ كَمَا عَاهَدْتُ دَاوُدَ أَبَاكَ قَائِلًا: لَا يُعْدَمُ لَكَ رَجُلٌ يَتَسَلَّطُ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ. ١٨ 18
then will I establish the throne of your kingdom, as I covenanted with David your father, saying, There shall not fail you a man ruling in Israel.
وَلَكِنْ إِنِ ٱنْقَلَبْتُمْ وَتَرَكْتُمْ فَرَائِضِي وَوَصَايَايَ ٱلَّتِي جَعَلْتُهَا أَمَامَكُمْ، وَذَهَبْتُمْ وَعَبَدْتُمْ آلِهَةً أُخْرَى وَسَجَدْتُمْ لَهَا، ١٩ 19
But if you should turn away, and forsake my ordinances and my commandments, which I have set before you, and go and serve other gods, and worship them;
فَإِنِّي أَقْلَعُهُمْ مِنْ أَرْضِي ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَيْتُهُمْ إِيَّاهَا، وَهَذَا ٱلْبَيْتُ ٱلَّذِي قَدَّسْتُهُ لِٱسْمِي أَطْرَحُهُ مِنْ أَمَامِي وَأَجْعَلُهُ مَثَلًا وَهُزْأَةً فِي جَمِيعِ ٱلشُّعُوبِ. ٢٠ 20
then will I remove you from the land which I gave them; and this house which I have consecrated to my name I will remove out of my sight, and I will make it a proverb and a byword amongst all nations.
وَهَذَا ٱلْبَيْتُ ٱلَّذِي كَانَ مُرْتَفِعًا، كُلُّ مَنْ يَمُرُّ بِهِ يَتَعَجَّبُ وَيَقُولُ: لِمَاذَا عَمِلَ ٱلرَّبُّ هَكَذَا لِهَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضِ وَلِهَذَا ٱلْبَيْتِ؟ ٢١ 21
And [as for] this lofty house, every one that passes by it shall be amazed, and shall say, Therefore has the Lord done [thus] to this land, and to this house?
فَيَقُولُونَ: مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّهُمْ تَرَكُوا ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَ آبَائِهِمِ ٱلَّذِي أَخْرَجَهُمْ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ، وَتَمَسَّكُوا بِآلِهَةٍ أُخْرَى وَسَجَدُوا لَهَا وَعَبَدُوهَا، لِذَلِكَ جَلَبَ عَلَيْهِمْ كُلَّ هَذَا ٱلشَّرِّ». ٢٢ 22
And [men] shall say, Because they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and they attached themselves to other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: and therefore he has brought upon them all this evil.
