اَلْمُلُوكِ ٱلثَّانِي 1

وَعَصَى مُوآبُ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ بَعْدَ وَفَاةِ أَخْآبَ. ١ 1
Moab rebelled against Israel after the death of Ahab.
وَسَقَطَ أَخَزْيَا مِنَ ٱلْكَوَّةِ ٱلَّتِي فِي عُلِّيَّتِهِ ٱلَّتِي فِي ٱلسَّامِرَةِ فَمَرِضَ، وَأَرْسَلَ رُسُلًا وَقَالَ لَهُمُ: «ٱذْهَبُوا ٱسْأَلُوا بَعْلَ زَبُوبَ إِلَهَ عَقْرُونَ إِنْ كُنْتُ أَبْرَأُ مِنْ هَذَا ٱلْمَرَضِ». ٢ 2
Then Ahaziah fell down through the lattice in his upper chamber in Samaria, and was injured. So he sent for messengers and said to them, “Go, ask Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron, whether I will recover from this injury.”
فَقَالَ مَلَاكُ ٱلرَّبِّ لِإِيلِيَّا ٱلتِّشْبِيِّ: «قُمِٱصْعَدْ لِلِقَاءِ رُسُلِ مَلِكِ ٱلسَّامِرَةِ وَقُلْ لَهُمْ: أَلَيْسَ لِأَنَّهُ لَا يُوجَدُ فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَهٌ، تَذْهَبُونَ لِتَسْأَلُوا بَعْلَ زَبُوبَ إِلَهَ عَقْرُونَ؟ ٣ 3
But the angel of Yahweh said to Elijah the Tishbite, “Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and ask them, 'Is it because there is no God in Israel that you are going to consult with Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron?
فَلِذَلِكَ هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: إِنَّ ٱلسَّرِيرَ ٱلَّذِي صَعِدْتَ عَلَيْهِ لَا تَنْزِلُ عَنْهُ بَلْ مَوْتًا تَمُوتُ». فَٱنْطَلَقَ إِيلِيَّا. ٤ 4
Therefore Yahweh says, “You will not come down from the bed to where you have gone up; instead, you will certainly die.”'” Then Elijah left.
وَرَجَعَ ٱلرُّسُلُ إِلَيْهِ، فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «لِمَاذَا رَجَعْتُمْ؟» ٥ 5
When the messengers returned to Ahaziah, he said to them, “Why have you returned?”
فَقَالُوا لَهُ: «صَعِدَ رَجُلٌ لِلِقَائِنَا وَقَالَ لَنَا: ٱذْهَبُوا رَاجِعِينَ إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ ٱلَّذِي أَرْسَلَكُمْ وَقُولُوا لَهُ: هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: أَلَيْسَ لِأَنَّهُ لَا يُوجَدُ فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَهٌ أَرْسَلْتَ لِتَسْأَلَ بَعْلَ زَبُوبَ إِلَهَ عَقْرُونَ؟ لِذَلِكَ ٱلسَّرِيرُ ٱلَّذِي صَعِدْتَ عَلَيْهِ، لَا تَنْزِلُ عَنْهُ بَلْ مَوْتًا تَمُوتُ». ٦ 6
They said to him, “A man came to meet us who said to us, 'Go back to the king who sent you, and say to him, “Yahweh says this: 'Is it because there is no God in Israel that you sent men to consult with Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron? Therefore you will not come down from the bed to which you have gone up; instead, you will certainly die.'”'”
فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «مَا هِيَ هَيْئَةُ ٱلرَّجُلِ ٱلَّذِي صَعِدَ لِلِقَائِكُمْ وَكَلَّمَكُمْ بِهَذَا ٱلْكَلَامِ؟» ٧ 7
Ahaziah said to his messengers, “What sort of man was he, the one who came up to meet you and said these words to you?”
فَقَالُوا لَهُ: «إِنَّهُ رَجُلٌ أَشْعَرُ مُتَنَطِّقٌ بِمِنْطَقَةٍ مِنْ جِلْدٍ عَلَى حُقَوَيْهِ». فَقَالَ: «هُوَ إِيلِيَّا ٱلتِّشْبِيُّ». ٨ 8
They answered him, “He wore a garment made of hair and had a leather belt wrapped around his waist.” So the king replied, “That is Elijah the Tishbite.”
فَأَرْسَلَ إِلَيْهِ رَئِيسَ خَمْسِينَ مَعَ ٱلْخَمْسِينَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَهُ، فَصَعِدَ إِلَيْهِ وَإِذَا هُوَ جَالِسٌ عَلَى رَأْسِ ٱلْجَبَلِ. فَقَالَ لَهُ: «يَا رَجُلَ ٱللهِ، ٱلْمَلِكُ يَقُولُ ٱنْزِلْ». ٩ 9
Then the king sent a captain with fifty soldiers to Elijah. The captain went up to Elijah where he was sitting on the top of a hill. The captain spoke to him, “You, man of God, the king has said, 'Come down.'”
فَأَجَابَ إِيلِيَّا وَقَالَ لِرَئِيسِ ٱلْخَمْسِينَ: «إِنْ كُنْتُ أَنَا رَجُلَ ٱللهِ، فَلْتَنْزِلْ نَارٌ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَتَأْكُلْكَ أَنْتَ وَٱلْخَمْسِينَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَكَ». فَنَزَلَتْ نَارٌ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَأَكَلَتْهُ هُوَ وَٱلْخَمْسِينَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَهُ. ١٠ 10
Elijah answered and said to the captain, “If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty men.” Then fire came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty men.
ثُمَّ عَادَ وَأَرْسَلَ إِلَيْهِ رَئِيسَ خَمْسِينَ آخَرَ وَٱلْخَمْسِينَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَهُ. فَأَجَابَ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «يَارَجُلَ ٱللهِ، هَكَذَا يَقُولُ ٱلْمَلِكُ: أَسْرِعْ وَٱنْزِلْ». ١١ 11
Again King Ahaziah sent to Elijah another captain with fifty soldiers. This captain also said to Elijah, “You, man of God, the king says, 'Come down quickly.'”
فَأَجَابَ إِيلِيَّا وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «إِنْ كُنْتُ أَنَا رَجُلَ ٱللهِ، فَلْتَنْزِلْ نَارٌ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَتَأْكُلْكَ أَنْتَ وَٱلْخَمْسِينَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَكَ». فَنَزَلَتْ نَارُ ٱللهِ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَأَكَلَتْهُ هُوَ وَٱلْخَمْسِينَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَهُ. ١٢ 12
Elijah answered and said to them, “If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty men.” Again the fire of God came down from heaven and consumed him and his fifty men.
ثُمَّ عَادَ فَأَرْسَلَ رَئِيسَ خَمْسِينَ ثَالِثًا وَٱلْخَمْسِينَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَهُ. فَصَعِدَ رَئِيسُ ٱلْخَمْسِينَ ٱلثَّالِثُ وَجَاءَ وَجَثَا عَلَى رُكْبَتَيْهِ أمَامَ إِيلِيَّا، وَتَضَرَّعَ إِلَيْهِ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «يَا رَجُلَ ٱللهِ، لِتُكْرَمْ نَفْسِي وَأَنْفُسُ عَبِيدِكَ هَؤُلَاءِ ٱلْخَمْسِينَ فِي عَيْنَيْكَ. ١٣ 13
Yet again the king sent a third group of fifty warriors. This captain went up, fell on his knees before Elijah, and implored him and said to him, “You, man of God, I ask you, let my life and the life of these fifty servants of yours be precious in your sight.
هُوَذَا قَدْ نَزَلَتْ نَارٌ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَأَكَلَتْ رَئِيسَيِ ٱلْخَمْسِينَيْنِ ٱلْأَوَّلَيْنِ وَخَمْسِينَيْهِمَا، وَٱلْآنَ فَلْتُكْرَمْ نَفْسِي فِي عَيْنَيْكَ». ١٤ 14
Indeed, fire came down from heaven and consumed the first two captains with their men, but now let my life be precious in your sight.”
فَقَالَ مَلَاكُ ٱلرَّبِّ لِإِيلِيَّا: «ٱنْزِلْ مَعَهُ. لَا تَخَفْ مِنْهُ». فَقَامَ وَنَزَلَ مَعَهُ إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ. ١٥ 15
The angel of Yahweh said to Elijah, “Go down with him. Do not be afraid of him.” So Elijah arose and went down with him to the king.
وَقَالَ لَهُ: «هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّكَ أَرْسَلْتَ رُسُلًا لِتَسْأَلَ بَعْلَ زَبُوبَ إِلَهَ عَقْرُونَ، أَلَيْسَ لِأَنَّهُ لَا يُوجَدُ فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَهٌ لِتَسْأَلَ عَنْ كَلَامِهِ! لِذَلِكَ ٱلسَّرِيرُ ٱلَّذِي صَعِدْتَ عَلَيْهِ لَا تَنْزِلُ عَنْهُ بَلْ مَوْتًا تَمُوتُ». ١٦ 16
Later Elijah said to Ahaziah, “This is what Yahweh says, 'You have sent messengers to consult with Baal-Zebub, the god of Ekron. Is it because there is no God in Israel from whom you can ask for information? So now, you will not come down from the bed where you have gone up; you will certainly die.'”
فَمَاتَ حَسَبَ كَلَامِ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ إِيلِيَّا. وَمَلَكَ يَهُورَامُ عِوَضًا عَنْهُ فِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلثَّانِيَةِ لِيَهُورَامَ بْنِ يَهُوشَافَاطَ مَلِكِ يَهُوذَا، لِأَنَّهُ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ ٱبْنٌ. ١٧ 17
So King Ahaziah died according to the word of Yahweh that Elijah had spoken. Joram began to reign in his place, in the second year of Jehoram son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, because Ahaziah had no son.
وَبَقِيَّةُ أُمُورِ أَخَزْيَا ٱلَّتِي عَمِلَ، أَمَا هِيَ مَكْتُوبَةٌ فِي سِفْرِ أَخْبَارِ ٱلْأَيَّامِ لِمُلُوكِ إِسْرَائِيلَ؟ ١٨ 18
As for the other matters concerning Ahaziah, are they not written in the book of the events of the kings of Israel?
