2 اخبار 7

وَلَمَّا ٱنْتَهَى سُلَيْمَانُ مِنَ ٱلصَّلَاةِ، نَزَلَتِ ٱلنَّارُ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَأَكَلَتِ ٱلْمُحْرَقَةَ وَٱلذَّبَائِحَ، وَمَلَأَ مَجْدُ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلْبَيْتَ. ١ 1
Now when Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the LORD’s glory filled the house.
وَلَمْ يَسْتَطِعِ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ أَنْ يَدْخُلُوا بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ لِأَنَّ مَجْدَ ٱلرَّبِّ مَلَأَ بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٢ 2
The priests could not enter into the LORD’s house, because the LORD’s glory filled the LORD’s 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
All the children of Israel looked on, when the fire came down, and the LORD’s glory was on the house. They bowed themselves with their faces to the ground on the pavement, worshipped, and gave thanks to the LORD, saying, “For he is good, for his loving kindness endures forever!”
ثُمَّ إِنَّ ٱلْمَلِكَ وَكُلَّ ٱلشَّعْبِ ذَبَحُوا ذَبَائِحَ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٤ 4
Then the king and all the people offered 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
King Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty-two thousand head of cattle and a hundred and twenty thousand sheep. So the king and all the people dedicated God’s house.
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
The priests stood, according to their positions; the Levites also with instruments of music of the LORD, which David the king had made to give thanks to the LORD, when David praised by their ministry, saying “For his loving kindness endures forever.” The priests sounded shofars before them; and all Israel stood.
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
Moreover Solomon made the middle of the court that was before the LORD’s house holy; for there he offered the burnt offerings and the fat of the peace offerings, because the bronze altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive the burnt offering, the meal offering, 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
So Solomon held the feast at that time for seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great assembly, from the entrance of Hamath to the brook of Egypt.
وَعَمِلُوا فِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلثَّامِنِ ٱعْتِكَافًا لِأَنَّهُمْ عَمِلُوا تَدْشِينَ ٱلْمَذْبَحِ سَبْعَةَ أَيَّامٍ، وَٱلْعِيدَ سَبْعَةَ أَيَّامٍ. ٩ 9
On the eighth day, they held a solemn assembly; for they kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days.
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
On the twenty-third day of the seventh month, he sent the people away to their tents, joyful and glad of heart for the goodness that the LORD had shown to David, 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
Thus Solomon finished the LORD’s house and the king’s house; and he successfully completed all that came into Solomon’s heart to make in the LORD’s house and in his own house.
وَتَرَاءَى ٱلرَّبُّ لِسُلَيْمَانَ لَيْلًا وَقَالَ لَهُ: «قَدْ سَمِعْتُ صَلَاتَكَ، وَٱخْتَرْتُ هَذَا ٱلْمَكَانَ لِي بَيْتَ ذَبِيحَةٍ. ١٢ 12
Then the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him, “I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place for 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 shut up the sky so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence amongst 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
if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves, pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
اَلْآنَ عَيْنَايَ تَكُونَانِ مَفْتُوحَتَيْنِ، وَأُذُنَايَ مُصْغِيَتَيْنِ إِلَى صَلَاةِ هَذَا ٱلْمَكَانِ. ١٥ 15
Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to prayer that is made in this place.
وَٱلْآنَ قَدِ ٱخْتَرْتُ وَقَدَّسْتُ هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتَ لِيَكُونَ ٱسْمِي فِيهِ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ، وَتَكُونُ عَيْنَايَ وَقَلْبِي هُنَاكَ كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ. ١٦ 16
For now I have chosen and made this house holy, that my name may be there forever; and my eyes and my heart will be there perpetually.
وَأَنْتَ إِنْ سَلَكْتَ أَمَامِي كَمَا سَلَكَ دَاوُدُ أَبُوكَ، وَعَمِلْتَ حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا أَمَرْتُكَ بِهِ، وَحَفِظْتَ فَرَائِضِي وَأَحْكَامِي، ١٧ 17
“As for you, if you will walk before me as David your father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded you, and will keep my statutes and my ordinances,
فَإِنِّي أُثَبِّتُ كُرْسِيَّ مُلْكِكَ كَمَا عَاهَدْتُ دَاوُدَ أَبَاكَ قَائِلًا: لَا يُعْدَمُ لَكَ رَجُلٌ يَتَسَلَّطُ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ. ١٨ 18
then I will establish the throne of your kingdom, according as I covenanted with David your father, saying, ‘There shall not fail you a man to be ruler in Israel.’
وَلَكِنْ إِنِ ٱنْقَلَبْتُمْ وَتَرَكْتُمْ فَرَائِضِي وَوَصَايَايَ ٱلَّتِي جَعَلْتُهَا أَمَامَكُمْ، وَذَهَبْتُمْ وَعَبَدْتُمْ آلِهَةً أُخْرَى وَسَجَدْتُمْ لَهَا، ١٩ 19
But if you turn away and forsake my statutes 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 I will pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have made holy for my name, I will cast out of my sight, and I will make it a proverb and a byword amongst all peoples.
وَهَذَا ٱلْبَيْتُ ٱلَّذِي كَانَ مُرْتَفِعًا، كُلُّ مَنْ يَمُرُّ بِهِ يَتَعَجَّبُ وَيَقُولُ: لِمَاذَا عَمِلَ ٱلرَّبُّ هَكَذَا لِهَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضِ وَلِهَذَا ٱلْبَيْتِ؟ ٢١ 21
This house, which is so high, everyone who passes by it will be astonished and say, ‘Why has the LORD done this 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
They shall answer, ‘Because they abandoned the LORD, the God of their fathers, who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and took other gods, worshipped them, and served them. Therefore he has brought all this evil on them.’”
