2 صموئيل 19

فَأُخْبِرَ يُوآبُ: «هُوَذَا ٱلْمَلِكُ يَبْكِي وَيَنُوحُ عَلَى أَبْشَالُومَ». ١ 1
It was told Joab, "Look, the king weeps and mourns for Absalom."
فَصَارَتِ ٱلْغَلَبَةُ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ مَنَاحَةً عِنْدَ جَمِيعِ ٱلشَّعْبِ، لِأَنَّ ٱلشَّعْبَ سَمِعُوا فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ مَنْ يَقُولُ إِنَّ ٱلْمَلِكَ قَدْ تَأَسَّفَ عَلَى ٱبْنِهِ. ٢ 2
The victory that day was turned into mourning to all the people; for the people heard it said that day, "The king grieves for his son."
وَتَسَلَّلَ ٱلشَّعْبُ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ لِلدُّخُولِ إِلَى ٱلْمَدِينَةِ كَمَا يَتَسَلَّلُ ٱلْقَوْمُ ٱلْخَجِلُونَ عِنْدَمَا يَهْرُبُونَ فِي ٱلْقِتَالِ. ٣ 3
The people sneaked into the city that day, as people who are ashamed steal away when they flee in battle.
وَسَتَرَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَجْهَهُ وَصَرَخَ ٱلْمَلكُ بِصَوْتٍ عَظِيمٍ: «يَا ٱبْنِي أَبْشَالُومُ، يَا أَبْشَالُومُ ٱبْنِي، يَا ٱبْنِي!». ٤ 4
The king covered his face, and he cried with a loud voice, "My son Absalom, Absalom, my son, my son."
فَدَخَلَ يُوآبُ إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ إِلَى ٱلْبَيْتِ وَقَالَ: «قَدْ أَخْزَيْتَ ٱلْيَوْمَ وُجُوهَ جَمِيعِ عَبِيدِكَ، مُنْقِذِي نَفْسِكَ ٱلْيَوْمَ وَأَنْفُسِ بَنِيكَ وَبَنَاتِكَ وَأَنْفُسِ نِسَائِكَ وَأَنْفُسِ سَرَارِيِّكَ، ٥ 5
Joab came into the house to the king, and said, "You have shamed this day the faces of all your servants, who this day have saved your life, and the lives of your sons and of your daughters, and the lives of your wives, and the lives of your secondary wives;
بِمَحَبَّتِكَ لِمُبْغِضِيكَ وَبُغْضِكَ لِمُحِبِّيكَ، لِأَنَّكَ أَظْهَرْتَ ٱلْيَوْمَ أَنَّهُ لَيْسَ لَكَ رُؤَسَاءُ وَلَا عَبِيدٌ، لِأَنِّي عَلِمْتُ ٱلْيَوْمَ أَنَّهُ لَوْ كَانَ أَبْشَالُومُ حَيًّا وَكُلُّنَا ٱلْيَوْمَ مَوْتَى، لَحَسُنَ حِينَئِذٍ ٱلْأَمْرُ فِي عَيْنَيْكَ. ٦ 6
in that you love those who hate you, and hate those who love you. For you have declared this day, that leaders and servants are nothing to you. For today I perceive that if Absalom had lived, and all of us had died, then you would be pleased.
فَٱلْآنَ قُمْ وَٱخْرُجْ وَطَيِّبْ قُلُوبَ عَبِيدِكَ، لِأَنِّي قَدْ أَقْسَمْتُ بِٱلرَّبِّ إِنَّهُ إِنْ لَمْ تَخْرُجْ لَا يَبِيتُ أَحَدٌ مَعَكَ هَذِهِ ٱللَّيْلَةَ، وَيَكُونُ ذَلِكَ أَشَرَّ عَلَيْكَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَرٍّ أَصَابَكَ مُنْذُ صِبَاكَ إِلَى ٱلْآنَ». ٧ 7
Now therefore arise, go out, and speak to comfort your servants; for I swear by the LORD, if you do not go out, not a man will stay with you this night. That would be worse to you than all the evil that has happened to you from your youth until now."
فَقَامَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَجَلَسَ فِي ٱلْبَابِ. فَأَخْبَرُوا جَمِيعَ ٱلشَّعْبِ قَائِلِينَ: «هُوَذَا ٱلْمَلِكُ جَالِسٌ فِي ٱلْبَابِ». فَأَتَى جَمِيعُ ٱلشَّعْبِ أَمَامَ ٱلْمَلِكِ. وَأَمَّا إِسْرَائِيلُ فَهَرَبُوا كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ إِلَى خَيْمَتِهِ. ٨ 8
Then the king arose, and sat in the gate. They told to all the people, saying, "Look, the king is sitting in the gate." All the people came before the king. Now Israel had fled every man to his tent.
وَكَانَ جَمِيعُ ٱلشَّعْبِ فِي خِصَامٍ فِي جَمِيعِ أَسْبَاطِ إِسْرَائِيلَ قَائِلِينَ: «إِنَّ ٱلْمَلِكَ قَدْ أَنْقَذَنَا مِنْ يَدِ أَعْدَائِنَا وَهُوَ نَجَّانَا مِنْ يَدِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ، وَٱلْآنَ قَدْ هَرَبَ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ لِأَجْلِ أَبْشَالُومَ ٩ 9
All the people were at strife throughout all the tribes of Israel, saying, "The king delivered us out of the hand of our enemies, and he saved us out of the hand of the Philistines, but now he has fled from the land and from being over his kingdom.
وَأَبْشَالُومُ ٱلَّذِي مَسَحْنَاهُ عَلَيْنَا قَدْ مَاتَ فِي ٱلْحَرْبِ. فَٱلْآنَ لِمَاذَا أَنْتُمْ سَاكِتُونَ عَنْ إِرْجَاعِ ٱلْمَلِكِ؟» ١٠ 10
And Absalom, whom we anointed over us, is dead in battle. Now therefore why do you not speak a word of bringing the king back?" And the talk of all Israel came to the king.
وَأَرْسَلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ دَاوُدُ إِلَى صَادُوقَ وَأَبِيَاثَارَ ٱلْكَاهِنَيْنِ قَائِلًا: «كَلِّمَا شُيُوخَ يَهُوذَا قَائِلَيْنِ: لِمَاذَا تَكُونُونَ آخِرِينَ فِي إِرْجَاعِ ٱلْمَلِكِ إِلَى بَيْتِهِ، وَقَدْ أَتَى كَلَامُ جَمِيعِ إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ فِي بَيْتِهِ؟ ١١ 11
So king David sent to Zadok and to Abiathar the priests, saying, "Speak to the elders of Judah, saying, 'Why are you the last to bring the king back to his house?
أَنْتُمْ إِخْوَتِي. أَنْتُمْ عَظْمِي وَلَحْمِي. فَلِمَاذَا تَكُونُونَ آخِرِينَ فِي إِرْجَاعِ ٱلْمَلِكِ؟ ١٢ 12
You are my brothers, you are my bone and my flesh. Why then are you the last to bring back the king?'
وَتَقُولَانِ لِعَمَاسَا: أَمَا أَنْتَ عَظْمِي وَلَحْمِي؟ هَكَذَا يَفْعَلُ بِيَ ٱللهُ وَهَكَذَا يَزِيدُ، إِنْ كُنْتَ لَا تَصِيرُ رَئِيسَ جَيْشٍ عِنْدِي كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ بَدَلَ يُوآبَ». ١٣ 13
And say to Amasa, 'Aren't you my bone and my flesh? Now then, God do so to me, and more also, if you aren't commander of the army before me continually in place of Joab. '"
فَٱسْتَمَالَ بِقُلُوبِ جَمِيعِ رِجَالِ يَهُوذَا كَرَجُلٍ وَاحِدٍ، فَأَرْسَلُوا إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ قَائِلِينَ: «ٱرْجِعْ أَنْتَ وَجَمِيعُ عَبِيدِكَ». ١٤ 14
Thus he won over the heart of all the men of Judah, even as one man, so that they sent to the king, saying, "Return, you and all your servants."
فَرَجَعَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَأَتَى إِلَى ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ، وَأَتَى يَهُوذَا إِلَى ٱلْجِلْجَالِ سَائِرًا لِمُلَاقَاةِ ٱلْمَلِكِ لِيُعَبِّرَ ٱلْمَلِكَ ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ. ١٥ 15
So the king returned and came to the Jordan. And Judah came to Gilgal, having come down to meet the king, to bring the king across the Jordan.
فَبَادَرَ شِمْعِي بْنُ جِيْرَا ٱلْبَنْيَامِينِيُّ ٱلَّذِي مِنْ بَحُورِيمَ وَنَزَلَ مَعَ رِجَالِ يَهُوذَا لِلِقَاءِ ٱلْمَلِكِ دَاوُدَ، ١٦ 16
And Shimei the son of Gera, the Benjamite who was from Bahurim, hurried and came down with the men of Judah to meet king David.
وَمَعَهُ أَلْفُ رَجُلٍ مِنْ بَنْيَامِينَ، وَصِيبَا غُلَامُ بَيْتِ شَاوُلَ وَبَنُوهُ ٱلْخَمْسَةَ عَشَرَ وَعَبِيدُهُ ٱلْعِشْرُونَ مَعَهُ، فَخَاضُوا ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ أَمَامَ ٱلْمَلِكِ. ١٧ 17
And there were a thousand men from Benjamin with him. But Ziba the servant of the house of Saul, and his fifteen sons and his twenty servants with him, waded through the Jordan ahead of the king,
وَعَبَرَ ٱلْقَارِبُ لِتَعْبِيرِ بَيْتِ ٱلْمَلِكِ وَلِعَمَلِ مَا يَحْسُنُ فِي عَيْنَيْهِ. وَسَقَطَ شِمْعِي بْنُ جِيْرَا أَمَامَ ٱلْمَلِكِ عِنْدَمَا عَبَرَ ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ، ١٨ 18
and they crossed the ford to bring over the king's household, and to do what was good in his sight. And Shimei the son of Gera fell down before the king, when he had crossed over the Jordan.
وَقَالَ لِلْمَلِكِ: «لَا يَحْسِبْ لِي سَيِّدِي إِثْمًا، وَلَا تَذْكُرْ مَا ٱفْتَرَى بِهِ عَبْدُكَ يَوْمَ خُرُوجِ سَيِّدِي ٱلْمَلِكِ مِنْ أُورُشَلِيمَ، حَتَّى يَضَعَ ٱلْمَلِكُ ذَلِكَ فِي قَلْبِهِ، ١٩ 19
He said to the king, "Do not let my lord impute iniquity to me, nor remember that which your servant did perversely the day that my lord the king went out of Jerusalem, that the king should take it to his heart.
لِأَنَّ عَبْدَكَ يَعْلَمُ أَنِّي قَدْ أَخْطَأْتُ، وَهَأَنَذَا قَدْ جِئْتُ ٱلْيَوْمَ أَوَّلَ كُلِّ بَيْتِ يُوسُفَ، وَنَزَلْتُ لِلِقَاءِ سَيِّدِي ٱلْمَلِكِ». ٢٠ 20
For your servant knows that I have sinned. Therefore look, I have come this day the first of all the house of Joseph to go down to meet my lord the king."
فَأَجَابَ أَبِيشَايُ ٱبْنُ صَرُويَةَ وَقَالَ: «أَلَا يُقْتَلُ شِمْعِي لِأَجْلِ هَذَا، لِأَنَّهُ سَبَّ مَسِيحَ ٱلرَّبِّ؟» ٢١ 21
But Abishai the son of Zeruiah answered, "Shall Shimei not be put to death for this, because he cursed the LORD's anointed?"
فَقَالَ دَاوُدُ: «مَا لِي وَلَكُمْ يَا بَنِي صَرُويَةَ حَتَّى تَكُونُوا لِيَ ٱلْيَوْمَ مُقَاوِمِينَ؟ آلْيَوْمَ يُقْتَلُ أَحَدٌ فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ؟ أَفَمَا عَلِمْتُ أَنِّي ٱلْيَوْمَ مَلِكٌ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ؟» ٢٢ 22
David said, "What have I to do with you, you sons of Zeruiah, that you should this day be adversaries to me? Shall there any man be put to death this day in Israel? For do you not realize that I am this day king over Israel?"
ثُمَّ قَالَ ٱلْمَلِكُ لِشِمْعِي: «لَا تَمُوتُ». وَحَلَفَ لَهُ ٱلْمَلِكُ. ٢٣ 23
The king said to Shimei, "You shall not die." The king swore to him.
وَنَزَلَ مَفِيبُوشَثُ ٱبْنُ شَاوُلَ لِلِقَاءِ ٱلْمَلِكِ، وَلَمْ يَعْتَنِ بِرِجْلَيْهِ، وَلَا ٱعْتَنَى بِلِحْيَتِهِ، وَلَا غَسَلَ ثِيَابَهُ، مِنَ ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلَّذِي ذَهَبَ فِيهِ ٱلْمَلِكُ إِلَى ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلَّذِي أَتَى فِيهِ بِسَلَامٍ. ٢٤ 24
Now Mippibaal son of Jonathan son of Saul came down to meet the king; and he had neither cared for his feet, nor trimmed his beard, nor washed his clothes, from the day the king departed until the day he came home safely.
فَلَمَّا جَاءَ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ لِلِقَاءِ ٱلْمَلِكِ، قَالَ لَهُ ٱلْمَلِكُ: «لِمَاذَا لَمْ تَذْهَبْ مَعِي يَامَفِيبُوشَثُ؟» ٢٥ 25
It happened, when he had come to Jerusalem to meet the king, that the king said to him, "Why did you not go with me, Mippibaal?"
فَقَالَ: «يَا سَيِّدِي ٱلْمَلِكُ إِنَّ عَبْدِي قَدْ خَدَعَنِي، لِأَنَّ عَبْدَكَ قَالَ: أَشُدُّ لِنَفْسِيَ ٱلْحِمَارَ فَأَرْكَبُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَذْهَبُ مَعَ ٱلْمَلِكِ، لِأَنَّ عَبْدَكَ أَعْرَجُ. ٢٦ 26
He answered, "My lord, O king, my servant deceived me. For your servant said to him, 'Saddle a donkey for me so that I may ride on it and go with the king,' for your servant is lame.
وَوَشَى بِعَبْدِكَ إِلَى سَيِّدِي ٱلْمَلِكِ، وَسَيِّدِي ٱلْمَلِكُ كَمَلَاكِ ٱللهِ. فَٱفْعَلْ مَا يَحْسُنُ فِي عَيْنَيْكَ. ٢٧ 27
He has slandered your servant to my lord the king; but my lord the king is as an angel of God. Do therefore what is good in your eyes.
لِأَنَّ كُلَّ بَيْتِ أَبِي لَمْ يَكُنْ إِلَا أُنَاسًا مَوْتَى لِسَيِّدِي ٱلْمَلِكِ، وَقَدْ جَعَلْتَ عَبْدَكَ بَيْنَ ٱلْآكِلِينَ عَلَى مَائِدَتِكَ. فَأَيُّ حَقٍّ لِي بَعْدُ حَتَّى أَصْرُخَ أَيْضًا إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ؟» ٢٨ 28
For all my father's house were but dead men before my lord the king; yet you set your servant among those who ate at your own table. What right therefore have I yet that I should cry any more to the king?"
فَقَالَ لَهُ ٱلْمَلِكُ: «لِمَاذَا تَتَكَلَّمُ بَعْدُ بِأُمُورِكَ؟ قَدْ قُلْتُ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ وَصِيبَا تَقْسِمَانِ ٱلْحَقْلَ». ٢٩ 29
The king said to him, "Why do you speak any more of your matters? I say, you and Ziba divide the land."
فَقَالَ مَفِيبُوشَثُ لِلْمَلِكِ: «فَلْيَأْخُذِ ٱلْكُلَّ أَيْضًا بَعْدَ أَنْ جَاءَ سَيِّدِي ٱلْمَلِكُ بِسَلَامٍ إِلَى بَيْتِهِ». ٣٠ 30
Mippibaal said to the king, "Yes, let him take all, because my lord the king has come in peace to his own house."
وَنَزَلَ بَرْزِلَّايُ ٱلْجِلْعَادِيُّ مِنْ رُوجَلِيمَ وَعَبَرَ ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ مَعَ ٱلْمَلِكِ لِيُشَيِّعَهُ عِنْدَ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ. ٣١ 31
Barzillai the Gileadite came down from Rogelim; and he went over the Jordan with the king, to conduct him from the Jordan.
وَكَانَ بَرْزِلَّايُ قَدْ شَاخَ جِدًّا. كَانَ ٱبْنَ ثَمَانِينَ سَنَةً. وَهُوَ عَالَ ٱلْمَلِكَ عِنْدَ إِقَامَتِهِ فِي مَحَنَايِمَ لِأَنَّهُ كَانَ رَجُلًا عَظِيمًا جِدًّا. ٣٢ 32
Now Barzillai was a very old man, eighty years old; and he had provided for the king while he was staying at Mahanaim, for he was a very rich man.
فَقَالَ ٱلْمَلِكُ لِبَرْزِلَّايَ: «ٱعْبُرْ أَنْتَ مَعِي وَأَنَا أَعُولُكَ مَعِي فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ». ٣٣ 33
The king said to Barzillai, "Come over with me, and I will sustain you with me in Jerusalem."
فَقَالَ بَرْزِلَّايُ لِلْمَلِكِ: «كَمْ أَيَّامُ سِنِي حَيَاتِي حَتَّى أَصْعَدَ مَعَ ٱلْمَلِكِ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ؟ ٣٤ 34
Barzillai said to the king, "How many are the days of the years of my life, that I should go up with the king to Jerusalem?
أَنَا ٱلْيَوْمَ ٱبْنُ ثَمَانِينَ سَنَةً. هَلْ أُمَيِّزُ بَيْنَ ٱلطَّيِّبِ وَٱلرَّدِيءِ؟ وَهَلْ يَسْتَطْعِمُ عَبْدُكَ بِمَا آكُلُ وَمَا أَشْرَبُ؟ وَهَلْ أَسْمَعُ أَيْضًا أَصْوَاتَ ٱلْمُغَنِّينَ وَٱلْمُغَنِّيَاتِ؟ فَلِمَاذَا يَكُونُ عَبْدُكَ أَيْضًا ثِقْلًا عَلَى سَيِّدِي ٱلْمَلِكِ؟ ٣٥ 35
I am this day eighty years old. Can I discern between good and bad? Can your servant taste what I eat or what I drink? Can I hear any more the voice of singing men and singing women? Why then should your servant be yet a burden to my lord the king?
يَعْبُرُ عَبْدُكَ قَلِيلًا ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ مَعَ ٱلْمَلِكِ. وَلِمَاذَا يُكَافِئُنِي ٱلْمَلِكُ بِهَذِهِ ٱلْمُكَافَأَةِ؟ ٣٦ 36
Your servant would but just go over the Jordan with the king. Why should the king repay me with such a reward?
دَعْ عَبْدَكَ يَرْجِعُ فَأَمُوتَ فِي مَدِينَتِي عِنْدَ قَبْرِ أَبِي وَأُمِّي. وَهُوَذَا عَبْدُكَ كِمْهَامُ يَعْبُرُ مَعَ سَيِّدِي ٱلْمَلِكِ، فَٱفْعَلْ لَهُ مَا يَحْسُنُ فِي عَيْنَيْكَ». ٣٧ 37
Please let your servant turn back again, that I may die in my own city, by the grave of my father and my mother. But look, your servant Kimham; let him go over with my lord the king; and do to him what shall seem good to you."
فَأَجَابَ ٱلْمَلِكُ: «إِنَّ كِمْهَامَ يَعْبُرُ مَعِي فَأَفْعَلُ لَهُ مَا يَحْسُنُ فِي عَيْنَيْكَ، وَكُلُّ مَا تَتَمَنَّاهُ مِنِّي أَفْعَلُهُ لَكَ». ٣٨ 38
The king answered, "Kimham shall go over with me, and I will do to him that which shall seem good to you. Whatever you require of me, that I will do for you."
فَعَبَرَ جَمِيعُ ٱلشَّعْبِ ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ، وَٱلْمَلِكُ عَبَرَ. وَقَبَّلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ بَرْزِلَّايَ وَبَارَكَهُ، فَرَجَعَ إِلَى مَكَانِهِ. ٣٩ 39
All the people crossed over the Jordan, but the king remained. Then the king kissed Barzillai, and blessed him; and he returned to his own place.
وَعَبَرَ ٱلْمَلِكُ إِلَى ٱلْجِلْجَالِ، وَعَبَرَ كِمْهَامُ مَعَهُ، وَكُلُّ شَعْبِ يَهُوذَا عَبَّرُوا ٱلْمَلِكَ، وَكَذَلِكَ نِصْفُ شَعْبِ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٤٠ 40
So the king went over to Gilgal, and Kimham went over with him. All the people of Judah brought the king over, and also half the people of Israel.
وَإِذَا بِجَمِيعِ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ جَاءُونَ إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ، وَقَالُوا لِلْمَلِكِ: «لِمَاذَا سَرِقَكَ إِخْوَتُنَا رِجَالُ يَهُوذَا وَعَبَرُوا ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ بِٱلْمَلِكِ وَبَيْتِهِ وَكُلِّ رِجَالِ دَاوُدَ مَعَهُ؟». ٤١ 41
Look, all the men of Israel came to the king, and said to the king, "Why have our brothers the men of Judah stolen you away, and brought the king, and his household, over the Jordan, and all David's men with him?"
فَأَجَابَ كُلُّ رِجَالِ يَهُوذَا رِجَالَ إِسْرَائِيلَ: «لِأَنَّ ٱلْمَلِكَ قَرِيبٌ إِلَيَّ، وَلِمَاذَا تَغْتَاظُ مِنْ هَذَا ٱلْأَمْرِ؟ هَلْ أَكَلْنَا شَيْئًا مِنَ ٱلْمَلِكِ أَوْ وَهَبَنَا هِبَةً؟» ٤٢ 42
All the men of Judah answered the men of Israel, "Because the king is a close relative to us. Why then are you angry about this matter? Have we eaten at all at the king's cost? Or has he given us any gifts?"
فَأَجَابَ رِجَالُ إِسْرَائِيلَ رِجَالَ يَهُوذَا وَقَالُوا: «لِي عَشْرَةُ أَسْهُمٍ فِي ٱلْمَلِكِ، وَأَنَا أَحَقُّ مِنْكَ بِدَاوُدَ، فَلِمَاذَا ٱسْتَخْفَفْتَ بِي وَلَمْ يَكُنْ كَلَامِي أَوَّلًا فِي إِرْجَاعِ مَلِكِي؟» وَكَانَ كَلَامُ رِجَالِ يَهُوذَا أَقْسَى مِنْ كَلَامِ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٤٣ 43
The men of Israel answered the men of Judah, and said, "We have ten parts in the king, and we are the firstborn rather than you. Why then did you despise us, that our advice should not be first had in bringing back our king?" The words of the men of Judah were fiercer than the words of the men of Israel.
