اَلْمُلُوكِ ٱلثَّانِي 24

فِي أَيَّامِهِ صَعِدَ نَبُوخَذْنَاصَّرُ مَلِكُ بَابِلَ، فَكَانَ لَهُ يَهُويَاقِيمُ عَبْدًا ثَلَاثَ سِنِينَ. ثُمَّ عَادَ فَتَمَرَّدَ عَلَيْهِ. ١ 1
In Jehoiakim's days, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon attacked Judah; Jehoiakim became his servant for three years. Then Jehoiakim turned back and rebelled against Nebuchadnezzar.
فَأَرْسَلَ ٱلرَّبُّ عَلَيْهِ غُزَاةَ ٱلْكِلْدَانِيِّينَ، وَغُزَاةَ ٱلْأَرَامِيِّينَ، وَغُزَاةَ ٱلْمُوآبِيِّينَ، وَغُزَاةَ بَنِي عَمُّونَ وَأَرْسَلَهُمْ عَلَى يَهُوذَا لِيُبِيدَهَا حَسَبَ كَلَامِ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ عَنْ يَدِ عَبِيدِهِ ٱلْأَنْبِيَاءِ. ٢ 2
Yahweh sent against Jehoiakim bands of Chaldeans, Arameans, Moabites, and Ammonites; he sent them against Judah to destroy it. This was in conformity with the word of Yahweh that had been spoken through his servants the prophets.
إِنَّ ذَلِكَ كَانَ حَسَبَ كَلَامِ ٱلرَّبِّ عَلَى يَهُوذَا لِيَنْزِعَهُمْ مِنْ أَمَامِهِ لِأَجْلِ خَطَايَا مَنَسَّى حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا عَمِلَ. ٣ 3
It was certainly at the mouth of Yahweh that this came on Judah, to remove them out of his sight, because of the sins of Manasseh, all that he did,
وَكَذَلِكَ لِأَجْلِ ٱلدَّمِ ٱلْبَرِيءِ ٱلَّذِي سَفَكَهُ، لِأَنَّهُ مَلَأَ أُورُشَلِيمَ دَمًا بَرِيئًا، وَلَمْ يَشَإِ ٱلرَّبُّ أَنْ يَغْفِرَ. ٤ 4
and also because of the innocent blood that he shed, for he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood. Yahweh was not willing to pardon that.
وَبَقِيَّةُ أُمُورِ يَهُويَاقِيمَ وَكُلُّ مَا عَمِلَ، أَمَا هِيَ مَكْتُوبَةٌ فِي سِفْرِ أَخْبَارِ ٱلْأَيَّامِ لِمُلُوكِ يَهُوذَا؟ ٥ 5
As for the other matters concerning Jehoiakim, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the events of the kings of Judah?
ثُمَّ ٱضْطَجَعَ يَهُويَاقِيمُ مَعَ آبَائِهِ، وَمَلَكَ يَهُويَاكِينُ ٱبْنُهُ عِوَضًا عَنْهُ. ٦ 6
Jehoiakim slept with his ancestors, and Jehoiachin his son became king in his place.
وَلَمْ يَعُدْ أَيْضًا مَلِكُ مِصْرَ يَخْرُجُ مِنْ أَرْضِهِ، لِأَنَّ مَلِكَ بَابِلَ أَخَذَ مِنْ نَهْرِ مِصْرَ إِلَى نَهْرِ ٱلْفُرَاتِ كُلَّ مَا كَانَ لِمَلِكِ مِصْرَ. ٧ 7
The king of Egypt did not attack any more out of his land, because the king of Babylon had conquered all the lands that had been controlled by the king of Egypt, from the brook of Egypt to the Euphrates River.
كَانَ يَهُويَاكِينُ ٱبْنَ ثَمَانِي عَشْرَةَ سَنَةً حِينَ مَلَكَ، وَمَلَكَ ثَلَاثَةَ أَشْهُرٍ فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ، وَٱسْمُ أُمِّهِ نَحُوشْتَا بِنْتُ أَلِنَاثَانَ مِنْ أُورُشَلِيمَ. ٨ 8
Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he began to reign; he reigned in Jerusalem three months. His mother's name was Nehushta; she was the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem.
وَعَمِلَ ٱلشَّرَّ فِي عَيْنَيِ ٱلرَّبِّ حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا عَمِلَ أَبُوهُ. ٩ 9
He did what was evil in the sight of Yahweh; he did all that his father had done.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلزَّمَانِ صَعِدَ عَبِيدُ نَبُوخَذْنَاصَّرَ مَلِكِ بَابِلَ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ، فَدَخَلَتِ ٱلْمَدِينَةُ تَحْتَ ٱلْحِصَارِ. ١٠ 10
At that time the army of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon attacked Jerusalem and besieged the city.
وَجَاءَ نَبُوخَذْنَاصَّرُ مَلِكُ بَابِلَ عَلَى ٱلْمَدِينَةِ، وَكَانَ عَبِيدُهُ يُحَاصِرُونَهَا. ١١ 11
Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to the city while his soldiers were besieging it,
فَخَرَجَ يَهُويَاكِينُ مَلِكُ يَهُوذَا إِلَى مَلِكِ بَابِلَ، هُوَ وَأُمُّهُ وَعَبِيدُهُ وَرُؤَسَاؤُهُ وَخِصْيَانُهُ، وَأَخَذَهُ مَلِكُ بَابِلَ فِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلثَّامِنَةِ مِنْ مُلْكِهِ. ١٢ 12
and Jehoiachin the king of Judah went out to the king of Babylon, he, his mother, his servants, his princes, and his officers. The king of Babylon captured him in the eighth year of his own reign.
وَأَخْرَجَ مِنْ هُنَاكَ جَمِيعَ خَزَائِنِ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَخَزَائِنِ بَيْتِ ٱلْمَلِكِ، وَكَسَّرَ كُلَّ آنِيَةِ ٱلذَّهَبِ ٱلَّتِي عَمِلَهَا سُلَيْمَانُ مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي هَيْكَلِ ٱلرَّبِّ، كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ. ١٣ 13
Nebuchadnezzar took out from there all the valuable things in the house of Yahweh, and those in the king's palace. He cut into pieces all the golden objects that Solomon king of Israel had made in the temple of Yahweh, as Yahweh had said would happen.
وَسَبَى كُلَّ أُورُشَلِيمَ وَكُلَّ ٱلرُّؤَسَاءِ وَجَمِيعَ جَبَابِرَةِ ٱلْبَأْسِ، عَشْرَةَ آلَافِ مَسْبِيٍّ، وَجَمِيعَ ٱلصُّنَّاعِ وَٱلْأَقْيَانِ. لَمْ يَبْقَ أَحَدٌ إِلَّا مَسَاكِينُ شَعْبِ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٤ 14
He took into exile all Jerusalem, all the leaders, and all the fighting men, ten thousand captives, and all the craftsmen and the smiths. No one was left except the poorest people in the land.
وَسَبَى يَهُويَاكِينَ إِلَى بَابِلَ. وَأُمَّ ٱلْمَلِكِ وَنِسَاءَ ٱلْمَلِكِ وَخِصْيَانَهُ وَأَقْوِيَاءَ ٱلْأَرْضِ، سَبَاهُمْ مِنْ أُورُشَلِيمَ إِلَى بَابِلَ. ١٥ 15
Nebuchadnezzar took Jehoiachin into exile at Babylon, as well as the king's mother, wives, officers, and the chief men of the land. He took them into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon.
وَجَمِيعُ أَصْحَابِ ٱلْبَأْسِ، سَبْعَةُ آلَافٍ، وَٱلصُّنَّاعُ وَٱلْأَقْيَانُ أَلْفٌ، وَجَمِيعُ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ أَهْلِ ٱلْحَرْبِ، سَبَاهُمْ مَلِكُ بَابِلَ إِلَى بَابِلَ. ١٦ 16
All the fighting men, seven thousand in number, and one thousand craftsmen and blacksmiths, all of them fit for fighting—the king of Babylon brought these men into exile at Babylon.
وَمَلَّكَ مَلِكُ بَابِلَ مَتَّنِيَّا عَمَّهُ عِوَضًا عَنْهُ، وَغَيَّرَ ٱسْمَهُ إِلَى صِدْقِيَّا. ١٧ 17
The king of Babylon made Mattaniah, Jehoiachin's father's brother, king in his place, and changed his name to Zedekiah.
كَانَ صِدْقِيَّا ٱبْنَ إِحْدَى وَعِشْرِينَ سَنَةً حِينَ مَلَكَ، وَمَلَكَ إِحْدَى عَشْرَةَ سَنَةً فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ، وَٱسْمُ أُمِّهِ حَمِّيطَلُ بِنْتُ إِرْمِيَا مِنْ لِبْنَةَ. ١٨ 18
Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he began to reign; he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Hamutal; she was the daughter of Jeremiah from Libnah.
وَعَمِلَ ٱلشَّرَّ فِي عَيْنَيِ ٱلرَّبِّ حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا عَمِلَ يَهُويَاقِيمُ. ١٩ 19
He did what was evil in the sight of Yahweh; he did all that Jehoiakim had done.
لِأَنَّهُ لِأَجْلِ غَضَبِ ٱلرَّبِّ عَلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ وَعَلَى يَهُوذَا حَتَّى طَرَحَهُمْ مِنْ أَمَامِ وَجْهِهِ، كَانَ أَنَّ صِدْقِيَّا تَمَرَّدَ عَلَى مَلِكِ بَابِلَ. ٢٠ 20
Through Yahweh's anger, all these events happened in Jerusalem and Judah, until he drove them out of his presence. Then Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon.
