2 ملوك 19

فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ ٱلْمَلِكُ حَزَقِيَّا ذَلِكَ، مَزَّقَ ثِيَابَهُ وَتَغَطَّى بِمِسْحٍ وَدَخَلَ بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ. ١ 1
And it came to pass when king Ezekias heard it, that he rent his clothes, and put on sackcloth, an went into the house of the Lord.
وَأَرْسَلَ أَلِيَاقِيمَ ٱلَّذِي عَلَى ٱلْبَيْتِ وَشِبْنَةَ ٱلْكَاتِبَ وَشُيُوخَ ٱلْكَهَنَةِ مُتَغَطِّينَ بِمِسْحٍ إِلَى إِشَعْيَا ٱلنَّبِيِّ ٱبْنِ آمُوصَ، ٢ 2
And he sent Heliakim the steward, and Somnas the scribe, and the elders of the priests, clothed with sackcloth, to Esaias the prophet the son of Amos.
فَقَالُوا لَهُ: «هَكَذَا يَقُولُ حَزَقِيَّا: هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمُ يَوْمُ شِدَّةٍ وَتَأْدِيبٍ وَإِهَانَةٍ، لِأَنَّ ٱلْأَجِنَّةَ قَدْ دَنَتْ إِلَى ٱلْمَوْلِدِ وَلَا قُوَّةَ لِلْوِلَادَةِ. ٣ 3
And they said to him, Thus says Ezekias, This day [is] a day of tribulation, and rebuke, and provocation: for the children are come to the travail-[pangs], but the mother has no strength.
لَعَلَّ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكَ يَسْمَعُ جَمِيعَ كَلَامِ رَبْشَاقَى ٱلَّذِي أَرْسَلَهُ مَلِكُ أَشُّورَ سَيِّدُهُ لِيُعَيِّرَ ٱلْإِلَهَ ٱلْحَيَّ، فَيُوَبِّخَ عَلَى ٱلْكَلَامِ ٱلَّذِي سَمِعَهُ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ. فَٱرْفَعْ صَلَاةً مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱلْبَقِيَّةِ ٱلْمَوْجُودَةِ». ٤ 4
Peradventure the Lord thy God will hear all the words of Rapsakes, whom the king of Assyria his master has sent to reproach the living God and to revile him with the words which the Lord thy God has heard: and thou shalt offer [thy] prayer for the remnant that is found.
فَجَاءَ عَبِيدُ ٱلْمَلِكِ حَزَقِيَّا إِلَى إِشَعْيَا، ٥ 5
So the servants of king Ezekias came to Esaias.
فَقَالَ لَهُمْ إِشَعْيَا: «هَكَذَا تَقُولُونَ لِسَيِّدِكُمْ: هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: لَا تَخَفْ بِسَبَبِ ٱلْكَلَامِ ٱلَّذِي سَمِعْتَهُ، ٱلَّذِي جَدَّفَ عَلَيَّ بِهِ غِلْمَانُ مَلِكِ أَشُّورَ. ٦ 6
And Esaias said to them, Thus shall ye say to your master, Thus saith the Lord, Be not afraid of the words which thou hast heard, wherewith the servants of the king of the Assyrians have blasphemed.
هَأَنَذَا أَجْعَلُ فِيهِ رُوحًا فَيَسْمَعُ خَبَرًا وَيَرْجِعُ إِلَى أَرْضِهِ، وَأُسْقِطُهُ بِٱلسَّيْفِ فِي أَرْضِهِ». ٧ 7
Behold, I send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a report, and shall return to his own land; and I will overthrow him with the sword in his own land.
فَرَجَعَ رَبْشَاقَى وَوَجَدَ مَلِكَ أَشُّورَ يُحَارِبُ لِبْنَةَ، لِأَنَّهُ سَمِعَ أَنَّهُ ٱرْتَحَلَ عَنْ لَخِيشَ. ٨ 8
So Rapsakes returned, and found the king of Assyria warring against Lobna: for he heard that he [had] departed from Lachis.
وَسَمِعَ عَنْ تُرْهَاقَةَ مَلِكِ كُوشٍ قَوْلًا: «قَدْ خَرَجَ لِيُحَارِبَكَ». فَعَادَ وَأَرْسَلَ رُسُلًا إِلَى حَزَقِيَّا قَائِلًا: ٩ 9
And he heard concerning Tharaca king of the Ethiopians, saying, Behold, he is come forth to fight with thee: and he returned, and sent messengers to Ezekias, saying,
«هَكَذَا تُكَلِّمُونَ حَزَقِيَّا مَلِكَ يَهُوذَا قَائِلِينَ: لَا يَخْدَعْكَ إِلَهُكَ ٱلَّذِي أَنْتَ مُتَّكِلٌ عَلَيْهِ قَائِلًا: لَا تُدْفَعُ أُورُشَلِيمُ إِلَى يَدِ مَلِكِ أَشُّورَ. ١٠ 10
Let not thy God on whom thou trustest encourage thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be delivered into the hands of the king of the Assyrians.
إِنَّكَ قَدْ سَمِعْتَ مَا فَعَلَ مُلُوكُ أَشُّورَ بِجَمِيعِ ٱلْأَرَاضِي لِإِهْلَاكِهَا، وَهَلْ تَنْجُو أَنْتَ؟ ١١ 11
Behold, thou hast heard all that the kings of the Assyrians have done in all the lands, to waste them utterly: and shalt thou be delivered?
هَلْ أَنْقَذَتْ آلِهَةُ ٱلْأُمَمِ هَؤُلَاءِ ٱلَّذِينَ أَهْلَكَهُمْ آبَائِي، جُوزَانَ وَحَارَانَ وَرَصْفَ وَبَنِي عَدَنَ ٱلَّذِينَ فِي تَلَاسَّارَ؟ ١٢ 12
Have the gods of the nations at all delivered them, whom my fathers destroyed; both Gozan, and Charran, and Raphis, and the sons of Edem who were in Thaesthen?
أَيْنَ مَلِكُ حَمَاةَ وَمَلِكُ أَرْفَادَ وَمَلِكُ مَدِينَةِ سَفْرَوَايِمَ وَهَيْنَعَ وَعِوَّا؟». ١٣ 13
Where is the king of Haemath, and the king of Arphad? and where is the king of the city of Seppharvaim, of Ana, and Aba?
فَأَخَذَ حَزَقِيَّا ٱلرَّسَائِلَ مِنْ أَيْدِي ٱلرُّسُلِ وَقَرَأَهَا، ثُمَّ صَعِدَ إِلَى بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَنَشَرَهَا حَزَقِيَّا أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ. ١٤ 14
And Ezekias took the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it: and he went up to the house of the Lord, and Ezekias spread it before the Lord,
وَصَلَّى حَزَقِيَّا أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ وَقَالَ: «أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ، ٱلْجَالِسُ فَوْقَ ٱلْكَرُوبِيمَ، أَنْتَ هُوَ ٱلْإِلَهُ وَحْدَكَ لِكُلِّ مَمَالِكِ ٱلْأَرْضِ. أَنْتَ صَنَعْتَ ٱلسَّمَاءَ وَٱلْأَرْضَ. ١٥ 15
and said, O Lord God of Israel that dwellest over the cherubs, thou art the only god in all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.
أَمِلْ يَارَبُّ أُذُنَكَ وَٱسْمَعْ. اِفْتَحْ يَارَبُّ عَيْنَيْكَ وَٱنْظُرْ، وَٱسْمَعْ كَلَامَ سَنْحَارِيبَ ٱلَّذِي أَرْسَلَهُ لِيُعَيِّرَ ٱللهَ ٱلْحَيَّ. ١٦ 16
Incline thine ear, O Lord, and hear: open, Lord, thine eyes, and see: and hear the words of Sennacherim, which he has sent to reproach the living God.
حَقًّا يَارَبُّ إِنَّ مُلُوكَ أَشُّورَ قَدْ خَرَّبُوا ٱلْأُمَمَ وَأَرَاضِيَهُمْ، ١٧ 17
For truly, Lord, the kings of Assyria have wasted the nations,
وَدَفَعُوا آلِهَتَهُمْ إِلَى ٱلنَّارِ. وَلِأَنَّهُمْ لَيْسُوا آلِهَةً، بَلْ صَنْعَةُ أَيْدِي ٱلنَّاسِ: خَشَبٌ وَحَجَرٌ، فَأَبَادُوهُمْ. ١٨ 18
and have cast their gods into the fire: because they are no gods, but the works of men's hands, wood and stone; and they have destroyed them.
وَٱلْآنَ أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُنَا خَلِّصْنَا مِنْ يَدِهِ، فَتَعْلَمَ مَمَالِكُ ٱلْأَرْضِ كُلُّهَا أَنَّكَ أَنْتَ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلْإِلَهُ وَحْدَكَ». ١٩ 19
And now, O Lord our God, deliver us out of his hand, and all the kingdoms of the earth shall know that thou alone [art] the Lord God.
فَأَرْسَلَ إِشَعْيَا بْنُ آمُوصَ إِلَى حَزَقِيَّا قَائِلًا: «هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلَّذِي صَلَّيْتَ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ جِهَةِ سَنْحَارِيبَ مَلِكِ أَشُّورَ: قَدْ سَمِعْتُ. ٢٠ 20
And Esaias the son of Amos sent to Ezekias, saying, Thus saith the Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel, I have heard thy prayer to me concerning Sennacherim king of the Assyrians.
هَذَا هُوَ ٱلْكَلَامُ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ ٱلرَّبُّ عَلَيْهِ: ٱحْتَقَرَتْكَ وَٱسْتَهْزَأَتْ بِكَ ٱلْعَذْرَاءُ ٱبْنَةُ صِهْيَوْنَ، وَنَحْوَكَ أَنْغَضَتِ ٱبْنَةُ أُورُشَلِيمَ رَأْسَهَا. ٢١ 21
This [is] the word which the Lord has spoken against him; The virgin daughter of Sion has made light of thee, and mocked thee; the daughter of Jerusalem has shaken her head at thee.
مَنْ عَيَّرْتَ وَجَدَّفْتَ؟ وَعَلَى مَنْ عَلَّيْتَ صَوْتًا؟ وَقَدْ رَفَعْتَ إِلَى ٱلْعَلَاءِ عَيْنَيْكَ عَلَى قُدُّوسِ إِسْرَائِيلَ! ٢٢ 22
Whom hast thou reproached, and whom hast thou reviled? and against whom hast thou lifted up thy voice, and raised thine eyes on high? [Is it] against the Holy One of Israel?
عَلَى يَدِ رُسُلِكَ عَيَّرْتَ ٱلسَّيِّدَ، وَقُلْتَ: بِكَثْرَةِ مَرْكَبَاتِي قَدْ صَعِدْتُ إِلَى عُلْوِ ٱلْجِبَالِ، إِلَى عِقَابِ لُبْنَانَ وَأَقْطَعُ أَرْزَهُ ٱلطَّوِيلَ وَأَفْضَلَ سَرْوِهِ، وَأَدْخُلُ أَقْصَى عُلْوِهِ، وَعْرَ كَرْمَلِهِ. ٢٣ 23
By thy messengers thou has reproached the Lord, and hast said, I will go up with the multitude of my chariots, to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Libanus, and I have cut down the height of his cedar, [and] his choice cypresses; and I have come into the midst of the forest and of Carmel.
أَنَا قَدْ حَفَرْتُ وَشَرِبْتُ مِيَاهًا غَرِيبَةً، وَأُنَشِّفُ بِأَسْفَلِ قَدَمَيَّ جَمِيعَ خُلْجَانِ مِصْرَ. ٢٤ 24
I have refreshed [myself], and have drunk strange waters, and I have dried up with the sole of my foot all the rivers of fortified places.
أَلَمْ تَسْمَعْ؟ مُنْذُ ٱلْبَعِيدِ صَنَعْتُهُ، مُنْذُ ٱلْأَيَّامِ ٱلْقَدِيمَةِ صَوَّرْتُهُ. ٱلْآنَ أَتَيْتُ بِهِ. فَتَكُونُ لِتَخْرِيبِ مُدُنٍ مُحَصَّنَةٍ حَتَّى تَصِيرَ رَوَابِيَ خَرِبَةً. ٢٥ 25
I have brought about [the matter], I have brought it to a conclusion; and it is come to the destruction of the bands of warlike prisoners, [even of] strong cities.
فَسُكَّانُهَا قِصَارُ ٱلْأَيْدِي قَدِ ٱرْتَاعُوا وَخَجِلُوا، صَارُوا كَعُشْبِ ٱلْحَقْلِ وَكَالنَّبَاتِ ٱلْأَخْضَرِ، كَحَشِيشِ ٱلسُّطُوحِ وَكَمَلْفُوحٍ قَبْلَ نُمُوِّهِ. ٢٦ 26
And they that dwelt in them were weak in hand, they quaked and were confounded, they became [as] grass of the field, or [as] the green herb, the grass [growing on] houses, and that which is trodden down by him that stands [upon it].
وَلَكِنِّي عَالِمٌ بِجُلُوسِكَ وَخُرُوجِكَ وَدُخُولِكَ وَهَيَجَانِكَ عَلَيَّ. ٢٧ 27
But I know thy down-sitting, and thy going forth, and thy rage against me.
لِأَنَّ هَيَجَانَكَ عَلَيَّ وَعَجْرَفَتَكَ قَدْ صَعِدَا إِلَى أُذُنَيَّ، أَضَعُ خِزَامَتِي فِي أَنْفِكَ وَلِجَامِي فِي شَفَتَيْكَ، وَأَرُدُّكَ فِي ٱلطَّرِيقِ ٱلَّذِي جِئْتَ فِيهِ. ٢٨ 28
Because thou was angry against me, and thy fierceness is come up into my ears, therefore will I put my hooks in thy nostrils, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.
«وَهَذِهِ لَكَ عَلَامَةٌ: تَأْكُلُونَ هَذِهِ ٱلسَّنَةَ زِرِّيعًا، وَفِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلثَّانِيَةِ خِلْفَةً. وَأَمَّا ٱلسَّنَةُ ٱلثَّالِثَةُ فَفِيهَا تَزْرَعُونَ وَتَحْصِدُونَ وَتَغْرِسُونَ كُرُومًا وَتَأْكُلُونَ أَثْمَارَهَا. ٢٩ 29
And this shall be a sign to thee; eat this year the things that grow of themselves, and in the second year the things which spring up: and in the third year [let there be] sowing, and reaping, and planting of vineyards, and eat ye the fruit of them.
وَيَعُودُ ٱلنَّاجُونَ مِنْ بَيْتِ يَهُوذَا، ٱلْبَاقُونَ، يَتَأَصَّلُونَ إِلَى أَسْفَلُ وَيَصْنَعُونَ ثَمَرًا إِلَى مَا فَوْقُ. ٣٠ 30
And he shall increase him that has escaped of the house of Juda: and the remnant [shall strike] root beneath, and it shall produce fruit above.
لِأَنَّهُ مِنْ أُورُشَلِيمَ تَخْرُجُ ٱلْبَقِيَّةُ، وَٱلنَّاجُونَ مِنْ جَبَلِ صِهْيَوْنَ. غَيْرَةُ رَبِّ ٱلْجُنُودِ تَصْنَعُ هَذَا. ٣١ 31
For from Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and he that escapes from the mountain of Sion: the zeal of the Lord of host shall do this.
«لِذَلِكَ هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ عَنْ مَلِكِ أَشُّورَ: لَا يَدْخُلُ هَذِهِ ٱلْمَدِينَةَ، وَلَا يَرْمِي هُنَاكَ سَهْمًا، وَلَا يَتَقَدَّمُ عَلَيْهَا بِتُرْسٍ، وَلَا يُقِيمُ عَلَيْهَا مِتْرَسَةً. ٣٢ 32
[Is it] not so? Thus saith the Lord concerning the king of the Assyrians, He shall not enter into this city, and he shall not shoot an arrow there, neither shall a shield come against it, neither shall he heap a mound against it.
فِي ٱلطَّرِيقِ ٱلَّذِي جَاءَ فِيهِ يَرْجِعُ، وَإِلَى هَذِهِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ لَا يَدْخُلُ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٣٣ 33
By the way by which he comes, by it shall he return, and he shall not enter into this city, saith the Lord.
وَأُحَامِي عَنْ هَذِهِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ لِأُخَلِّصَهَا مِنْ أَجْلِ نَفْسِي وَمِنْ أَجْلِ دَاوُدَ عَبْدِي». ٣٤ 34
And I will defend this city as with a shield, for my own sake, and for my servant David's sake.
وَكَانَ فِي تِلْكَ ٱللَّيْلَةِ أَنَّ مَلَاكَ ٱلرَّبِّ خَرَجَ وَضَرَبَ مِنْ جَيْشِ أَشُّورَ مِئَةَ أَلْفٍ وَخَمْسَةً وَثَمَانِينَ أَلْفًا. وَلَمَّا بَكَّرُوا صَبَاحًا إِذَا هُمْ جَمِيعًا جُثَثٌ مَيْتَةٌ. ٣٥ 35
And it came to pass at night that the angel of the Lord went forth, an smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and eighty-five thousand: and they rose early in the morning, and, behold, [these were] all dead corpses.
فَٱنْصَرَفَ سَنْحَارِيبُ مَلِكُ أَشُّورَ وَذَهَبَ رَاجِعًا وَأَقَامَ فِي نِينَوَى. ٣٦ 36
And Sennacherim king of the Assyrians departed, and went and returned, and dwelt in Nineve.
وَفِيمَا هُوَ سَاجِدٌ فِي بَيْتِ نِسْرُوخَ إِلَهِهِ، ضَرَبَهُ أَدْرَمَّلَكُ وَشَرَآصَرُ ٱبْنَاهُ بِٱلسَّيْفِ، وَنَجَوَا إِلَى أَرْضِ أَرَارَاطَ. وَمَلَكَ آسَرْحَدُّونُ ٱبْنُهُ عِوَضًا عَنْهُ. ٣٧ 37
And it came to pass, while he was worshipping in the house of Meserach his god, that Adramelech and Sarasar his sons smote him with the sword: and they escaped into the land of Ararath; and Asordan his son reigned in his stead.
