اَلْمُلُوكِ ٱلثَّانِي 13

فِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلثَّالِثَةِ وَٱلْعِشْرِينَ لِيُوآشَ بْنِ أَخَزْيَا مَلِكِ يَهُوذَا، مَلَكَ يَهُوأَحَازُ بْنُ يَاهُو عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي ٱلسَّامِرَةِ سَبْعَ عَشْرَةَ سَنَةً. ١ 1
In the twenty-third year of Joash son of Ahaziah king of Judah, Jehoahaz son of Jehu began to reign over Israel in Samaria; he reigned seventeen years.
وَعَمِلَ ٱلشَّرَّ فِي عَيْنَيِ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَسَارَ وَرَاءَ خَطَايَا يَرُبْعَامَ بْنِ نَبَاطَ ٱلَّذِي جَعَلَ إِسْرَائِيلَ يُخْطِئُ. لَمْ يَحِدْ عَنْهَا. ٢ 2
He did what was evil in the sight of Yahweh and followed the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, who caused Israel to sin; and Jehoahaz did not turn away from them.
فَحَمِيَ غَضَبُ ٱلرَّبِّ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ، فَدَفَعَهُمْ لِيَدِ حَزَائِيلَ مَلِكِ أَرَامَ، وَلِيَدِ بَنْهَدَدَ بْنِ حَزَائِيلَ كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ. ٣ 3
The anger of Yahweh burned against Israel, and he gave them continually into the hand of Hazael king of Aram and into the hand of Ben Hadad son of Hazael.
وَتَضَرَّعَ يَهُوأَحَازُ إِلَى وَجْهِ ٱلرَّبِّ، فَسَمِعَ لَهُ ٱلرَّبُّ لِأَنَّهُ رَأَى ضِيقَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، لِأَنَّ مَلِكَ أَرَامَ ضَايَقَهُمْ. ٤ 4
So Jehoahaz implored Yahweh, and Yahweh listened to him because he saw the oppression of Israel, how the king of Aram was oppressing them.
وَأَعْطَى ٱلرَّبُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ مُخَلِّصًا، فَخَرَجُوا مِنْ تَحْتِ يَدِ ٱلْأَرَامِيِّينَ. وَأَقَامَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي خِيَامِهِمْ كَأَمْسِ وَمَا قَبْلَهُ. ٥ 5
So Yahweh gave Israel a rescuer, and they escaped from the hand of the Arameans, and the people of Israel began to live in their homes as they had before.
وَلَكِنَّهُمْ لَمْ يَحِيدُوا عَنْ خَطَايَا بَيْتِ يَرُبْعَامَ ٱلَّذِي جَعَلَ إِسْرَائِيلَ يُخْطِئُ، بَلْ سَارُوا بِهَا. وَوَقَفَتِ ٱلسَّارِيَةُ أَيْضًا فِي ٱلسَّامِرَةِ. ٦ 6
Nevertheless, they did not depart from the sins of the house of Jeroboam, who caused Israel to sin, and they continued in them; and the Asherah pole remained in Samaria.
لِأَنَّهُ لَمْ يُبْقِ لِيَهُوأَحَازَ شَعْبًا إِلَّا خَمْسِينَ فَارِسًا وَعَشَرَ مَرْكَبَاتٍ وَعَشْرَةَ آلَافِ رَاجِلٍ، لِأَنَّ مَلِكَ أَرَامَ أَفْنَاهُمْ وَوَضَعَهُمْ كَٱلتُّرَابِ لِلدَّوْسِ. ٧ 7
The Arameans left Jehoahaz with only fifty horsemen, ten chariots, and ten thousand footmen, for the king of Aram had destroyed them and made them like the chaff at threshing time.
وَبَقِيَّةُ أُمُورِ يَهُوأَحَازَ وَكُلُّ مَا عَمِلَ وَجَبَرُوتُهُ، أَمَا هِيَ مَكْتُوبَةٌ فِي سِفْرِ أَخْبَارِ ٱلْأَيَّامِ لِمُلُوكِ إِسْرَائِيلَ؟ ٨ 8
As for the other matters concerning Jehoahaz, and all that he did and his power, are they not written in the book of the events of the kings of Israel?
ثُمَّ ٱضْطَجَعَ يَهُوأَحَازُ مَعَ آبَائِهِ، فَدَفَنُوهُ فِي ٱلسَّامِرَةِ، وَمَلَكَ يُوآشُ ٱبْنُهُ عِوَضًا عَنْهُ. ٩ 9
So Jehoahaz slept with his ancestors, and they buried him in Samaria. Johoash his son became king in his place.
فِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلسَّابِعَةِ وَٱلثَّلَاثِينَ لِيُوآشَ مَلِكِ يَهُوذَا، مَلَكَ يَهُوآشُ بْنُ يَهُوأَحَازَ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي ٱلسَّامِرَةِ سِتَّ عَشْرَةَ سَنَةً. ١٠ 10
In the thirty-seventh year of Joash king of Judah, the reign of Jehoash son of Jehoahaz began over Israel in Samaria; he reigned sixteen years.
وَعَمِلَ ٱلشَّرَّ فِي عَيْنَيِ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَلَمْ يَحِدْ عَنْ جَمِيعِ خَطَايَا يَرُبْعَامَ بْنِ نَبَاطَ ٱلَّذِي جَعَلَ إِسْرَائِيلَ يُخْطِئُ، بَلْ سَارَ بِهَا. ١١ 11
He did what was evil in the sight of Yahweh. He did not leave behind any of the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, by which he had made Israel to sin, but he walked in them.
وَبَقِيَّةُ أُمُورِ يُوآشَ وَكُلُّ مَا عَمِلَ وَجَبَرُوتُهُ وَكَيْفَ حَارَبَ أَمَصْيَا مَلِكَ يَهُوذَا، أَمَا هِيَ مَكْتُوبَةٌ فِي سِفْرِ أَخْبَارِ ٱلْأَيَّامِ لِمُلُوكِ إِسْرَائِيلَ؟ ١٢ 12
As for the other matters concerning Jehoash, and all that he did, and his might by which he fought against Amaziah king of Judah, are they not written in the book of the events of the kings of Israel?
ثُمَّ ٱضْطَجَعَ يُوآشُ مَعَ آبَائِهِ، وَجَلَسَ يَرُبْعَامُ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّهِ. وَدُفِنَ يُوآشُ فِي ٱلسَّامِرَةِ مَعَ مُلُوكِ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ١٣ 13
Jehoash slept with his ancestors, and Jeroboam sat on his throne. Jehoash was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel.
وَمَرِضَ أَلِيشَعُ مَرَضَهُ ٱلَّذِي مَاتَ بِهِ، فَنَزَلَ إِلَيْهِ يُوآشُ مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَبَكَى عَلَى وَجْهِهِ وَقَالَ: «يَا أَبِي، يَا أَبِي، يَا مَرْكَبَةَ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَفُرْسَانَهَا». ١٤ 14
Now Elisha became sick with an illness by which he later died, so Jehoash the king of Israel came down to him and wept over him. He said, “My father, my father, the chariots of Israel and the horsemen are taking you away!”
فَقَالَ لَهُ أَلِيشَعُ: «خُذْ قَوْسًا وَسِهَامًا». فَأَخَذَ لِنَفْسِهِ قَوْسًا وَسِهَامًا. ١٥ 15
Elisha said to him, “Pick up a bow and some arrows,” so Joash picked up a bow and some arrows.
ثُمَّ قَالَ لِمَلِكِ إِسْرَائِيلَ: «رَكِّبْ يَدَكَ عَلَى ٱلْقَوْسِ». فَرَكَّبَ يَدَهُ، ثُمَّ وَضَعَ أَلِيشَعُ يَدَهُ عَلَى يَدَيِ ٱلْمَلِكِ ١٦ 16
Elisha said to the king of Israel, “Put your hand on the bow,” so he put his hand on it. Then Elisha laid his hands on the king's hands.
وَقَالَ: «ٱفْتَحِ ٱلْكَوَّةَ لِجِهَةِ ٱلشَّرْقِ». فَفَتَحَهَا. فَقَالَ أَلِيشَعُ: «ٱرْمِ». فَرَمَى. فَقَالَ: «سَهْمُ خَلَاصٍ لِلرَّبِّ وَسَهْمُ خَلَاصٍ مِنْ أَرَامَ، فَإِنَّكَ تَضْرِبُ أَرَامَ فِي أَفِيقَ إِلَى ٱلْفَنَاءِ». ١٧ 17
Elisha said, “Open the window eastward,” so he opened it. Then Elisha said, “Shoot!”, and he shot. Elisha said, “This is Yahweh's arrow of victory, the arrow of victory over Aram, for you will attack the Arameans in Aphek until you have consumed them.”
ثُمَّ قَالَ: «خُذِ ٱلسِّهَامَ». فَأَخَذَهَا. ثُمَّ قَالَ لِمَلِكِ إِسْرَائِيلَ: «ٱضْرِبْ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ». فَضَرَبَ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ وَوَقَفَ. ١٨ 18
Then Elisha said, “Take the arrows,” so Joash took them. He said to the king of Israel, “Strike the ground with them,” and he struck the ground three times, then stopped.
فَغَضِبَ عَلَيْهِ رَجُلُ ٱللهِ وَقَالَ: «لَوْ ضَرَبْتَ خَمْسَ أَوْ سِتَّ مَرَّاتٍ، حِينَئِذٍ ضَرَبْتَ أَرَامَ إِلَى ٱلْفَنَاءِ. وَأَمَّا ٱلْآنَ فَإِنَّكَ إِنَّمَا تَضْرِبُ أَرَامَ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ». ١٩ 19
But the man of God was angry with him and said, “You should have hit the ground five or six times. Then you would have attacked Aram until you annihilated it, but now you will attack Aram only three times.”
وَمَاتَ أَلِيشَعُ فَدَفَنُوهُ. وَكَانَ غُزَاةُ مُوآبَ تَدْخُلُ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ عِنْدَ دُخُولِ ٱلسَّنَةِ. ٢٠ 20
Then Elisha died, and they buried him. Now groups of Moabites invaded the land at the beginning of the year.
وَفِيمَا كَانُوا يَدْفِنُونَ رَجُلًا إِذَا بِهِمْ قَدْ رَأَوْا ٱلْغُزَاةَ، فَطَرَحُوا ٱلرَّجُلَ فِي قَبْرِ أَلِيشَعَ، فَلَمَّا نَزَلَ ٱلرَّجُلُ وَمَسَّ عِظَامَ أَلِيشَعَ عَاشَ وَقَامَ عَلَى رِجْلَيْهِ. ٢١ 21
As they were burying a certain man, they saw a group of Moabites, so they threw the body into Elisha's grave. As soon as the man touched Elisha's bones, he revived and stood up on his feet.
وَأَمَّا حَزَائِيلُ مَلِكُ أَرَامَ فَضَايَقَ إِسْرَائِيلَ كُلَّ أَيَّامِ يَهُوأَحَازَ، ٢٢ 22
Hazael king of Aram oppressed Israel all the days of Jehoahaz.
فَحَنَّ ٱلرَّبُّ عَلَيْهِمْ وَرَحِمَهُمْ وَٱلْتَفَتَ إِلَيْهِمْ لِأَجْلِ عَهْدِهِ مَعَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْحَاقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ، وَلَمْ يَشَأْ أَنْ يَسْتَأْصِلَهُمْ، وَلَمْ يَطْرَحْهُمْ عَنْ وَجْهِهِ حَتَّى ٱلْآنَ. ٢٣ 23
But Yahweh was gracious to Israel, and had compassion on them and concern for them, because of his covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. So Yahweh did not destroy them, and he still has not driven them away from his presence.
ثُمَّ مَاتَ حَزَائِيلُ مَلِكُ أَرَامَ، وَمَلَكَ بَنْهَدَدُ ٱبْنُهُ عِوَضًا عَنْهُ. ٢٤ 24
Hazael king of Aram died, and Ben Hadad his son became king in his place.
فَعَادَ يَهُوآشُ بْنُ يَهُوأَحَازَ وَأَخَذَ ٱلْمُدُنَ مِنْ يَدِ بَنْهَدَدَ بْنِ حَزَائِيلَ ٱلَّتِي أَخَذَهَا مِنْ يَدِ يَهُوأَحَازَ أَبِيهِ بِٱلْحَرْبِ. ضَرَبَهُ يُوآشُ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ وَٱسْتَرَدَّ مُدُنَ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٢٥ 25
Jehoash son of Jehoahaz took back from Ben Hadad son of Hazael the cities that had been taken from Jehoahaz his father by war. Jehoash attacked him three times, and he recovered those cities of Israel.
