صَمُوئِيلَ ٱلثَّانِي 7

وَكَانَ لَمَّا سَكَنَ ٱلْمَلِكُ فِي بَيْتِهِ، وَأَرَاحَهُ ٱلرَّبُّ مِنْ كُلِّ ٱلْجِهَاتِ مِنْ جَمِيعِ أَعْدَائِهِ، ١ 1
It happened that after the king had settled in his house, and after Yahweh had given him rest from all his surrounding enemies,
أَنَّ ٱلْمَلِكَ قَالَ لِنَاثَانَ ٱلنَّبِيِّ: «ٱنْظُرْ. إِنِّي سَاكِنٌ فِي بَيْتٍ مِنْ أَرْزٍ، وَتَابُوتُ ٱللهِ سَاكِنٌ دَاخِلَ ٱلشُّقَقِ». ٢ 2
the king said to Nathan the prophet, “Look, I am living in a house of cedar, but the ark of God is staying in the middle of a tent.”
فَقَالَ نَاثَانُ لِلْمَلِكِ: «ٱذْهَبِ ٱفْعَلْ كُلَّ مَا بِقَلْبِكَ، لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ مَعَكَ». ٣ 3
Then Nathan said to the king, “Go, do what is in your heart, for Yahweh is with you.”
وَفِي تِلْكَ ٱللَّيْلَةِ كَانَ كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى نَاثَانَ قَائِلًا: ٤ 4
But that same night the word of Yahweh came to Nathan, saying,
«اِذْهَبْ وَقُلْ لِعَبْدِي دَاوُدَ: هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: أَأَنْتَ تَبْنِي لِي بَيْتًا لِسُكْنَايَ؟ ٥ 5
“Go and tell David my servant, 'This is what Yahweh says: Will you build me a house in which to live?
لِأَنِّي لَمْ أَسْكُنْ فِي بَيْتٍ مُنْذُ يَوْمَ أَصْعَدْتُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ مِصْرَ إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ، بَلْ كُنْتُ أَسِيرُ فِي خَيْمَةٍ وَفِي مَسْكَنٍ. ٦ 6
For I have not lived in a house from the day that I brought up the people of Israel out of Egypt until this present day; instead, I have been moving about in a tent, a tabernacle.
فِي كُلِّ مَا سِرْتُ مَعَ جَمِيعِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، هَلْ تَكَلَّمْتُ بِكَلِمَةٍ إِلَى أَحَدِ قُضَاةِ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَمَرْتُهُمْ أَنْ يَرْعَوْا شَعْبِي إِسْرَائِيلَ قَائِلًا: لِمَاذَا لَمْ تَبْنُوا لِي بَيْتًا مِنَ ٱلْأَرْزِ؟ ٧ 7
In all places where I have moved among all the people of Israel, did I ever say anything to any of Israel's leaders whom I appointed to shepherd my people Israel, saying, “Why have you not built me a house of cedar?”'”
وَٱلْآنَ فَهَكَذَا تَقُولُ لِعَبْدِي دَاوُدَ: هَكَذَا قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ: أَنَا أَخَذْتُكَ مِنَ ٱلْمَرْبَضِ مِنْ وَرَاءِ ٱلْغَنَمِ لِتَكُونَ رَئِيسًا عَلَى شَعْبِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٨ 8
Now then, tell my servant David, “This is what Yahweh of hosts says: 'I took you from the pasture, from following the sheep, so that you would be ruler over my people Israel.
وَكُنْتُ مَعَكَ حَيْثُمَا تَوَجَّهْتَ، وَقَرَضْتُ جَمِيعَ أَعْدَائِكَ مِنْ أَمَامِكَ، وَعَمِلْتُ لَكَ ٱسْمًا عَظِيمًا كَٱسْمِ ٱلْعُظَمَاءِ ٱلَّذِينَ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٩ 9
I have been with you wherever you went. I have cut off all your enemies from before you. Now I will make your name great, like the names of the great ones of the earth.
وَعَيَّنْتُ مَكَانًا لِشَعْبِي إِسْرَائِيلَ وَغَرَسْتُهُ، فَسَكَنَ فِي مَكَانِهِ، وَلَا يَضْطَرِبُ بَعْدُ، وَلَا يَعُودُ بَنُو ٱلْإِثْمِ يُذَلِّلُونَهُ كَمَا فِي ٱلْأَوَّلِ، ١٠ 10
I will appoint a place for my people Israel and will plant them there, so that they may live in their own place and be troubled no more. No longer will wicked people oppress them, as they did before,
وَمُنْذُ يَوْمَ أَقَمْتُ فِيهِ قُضَاةً عَلَى شَعْبِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. وَقَدْ أَرَحْتُكَ مِنْ جَمِيعِ أَعْدَائِكَ. وَٱلرَّبُّ يُخْبِرُكَ أَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ يَصْنَعُ لَكَ بَيْتًا. ١١ 11
as they were doing from the days that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel. Now I will give you rest from all your enemies. Moreover, I, Yahweh declare to you that I will make you a house.
مَتَى كَمُلَتْ أَيَّامُكَ وَٱضْطَجَعْتَ مَعَ آبَائِكَ، أُقِيمُ بَعْدَكَ نَسْلَكَ ٱلَّذِي يَخْرُجُ مِنْ أَحْشَائِكَ وَأُثَبِّتُ مَمْلَكَتَهُ. ١٢ 12
When your days are fulfilled and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up a descendant after you, one who will come out from your body, and I will establish his kingdom.
هُوَ يَبْنِي بَيْتًا لِٱسْمِي، وَأَنَا أُثَبِّتُ كُرْسِيَّ مَمْلَكَتِهِ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ. ١٣ 13
He will build a house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.
أَنَا أَكُونُ لَهُ أَبًا وَهُوَ يَكُونُ لِيَ ٱبْنًا. إِنْ تَعَوَّجَ أُؤَدِّبْهُ بِقَضِيبِ ٱلنَّاسِ وَبِضَرَبَاتِ بَنِي آدَمَ. ١٤ 14
I will be a father to him, and he will be my son. When he sins, I will discipline him with the rod of men and with the whipping of the sons of men.
وَلَكِنَّ رَحْمَتِي لَا تُنْزَعُ مِنْهُ كَمَا نَزَعْتُهَا مِنْ شَاوُلَ ٱلَّذِي أَزَلْتُهُ مِنْ أَمَامِكَ. ١٥ 15
But my covenant faithfulness will not leave him, as I took it from Saul, whom I removed from before you.
وَيَأْمَنُ بَيْتُكَ وَمَمْلَكَتُكَ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ أَمَامَكَ. كُرْسِيُّكَ يَكُونُ ثَابِتًا إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ». ١٦ 16
Your house and kingdom will be confirmed forever before you. Your throne will be established forever.'”
فَحَسَبَ جَمِيعِ هَذَا ٱلْكَلَامِ وَحَسَبَ كُلِّ هَذِهِ ٱلرُّؤْيَا كَذَلِكَ كَلَّمَ نَاثَانُ دَاوُدَ. ١٧ 17
Nathan spoke to David and reported to him all these words, and he told him about the entire vision.
فَدَخَلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ دَاوُدُ وَجَلَسَ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ وَقَالَ: «مَنْ أَنَا يَا سَيِّدِي ٱلرَّبَّ؟ وَمَا هُوَ بَيْتِي حَتَّى أَوْصَلْتَنِي إِلَى هَهُنَا؟ ١٨ 18
Then David the king went in and sat before Yahweh and said, “Who am I, Yahweh God, and what is my family that you have brought me to this point?
وَقَلَّ هَذَا أَيْضًا فِي عَيْنَيْكَ يَا سَيِّدِي ٱلرَّبَّ، فَتَكَلَّمْتَ أَيْضًا مِنْ جِهَةِ بَيْتِ عَبْدِكَ إِلَى زَمَانٍ طَوِيلٍ، وَهَذِهِ عَادَةُ ٱلْإِنْسَانِ يَاسَيِّدِي ٱلرَّبَّ. ١٩ 19
Now this was a small thing in your sight, Lord Yahweh. You have even spoken about your servant's family for a great while to come, and have shown me future generations, Lord Yahweh!
وَبِمَاذَا يَعُودُ دَاوُدُ يُكَلِّمُكَ وَأَنْتَ قَدْ عَرَفْتَ عَبْدَكَ يَا سَيِّدِي ٱلرَّبَّ؟ ٢٠ 20
What more can I, David, say to you? You have known your servant, Lord Yahweh.
فَمِنْ أَجْلِ كَلِمَتِكَ وَحَسَبَ قَلْبِكَ فَعَلْتَ هَذِهِ ٱلْعَظَائِمَ كُلَّهَا لِتُعَرِّفَ عَبْدَكَ. ٢١ 21
For your word's sake, and to fulfill your own purpose, you have done this great thing and revealed it to your servant.
لِذَلِكَ قَدْ عَظُمْتَ أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلْإِلَهُ، لِأَنَّهُ لَيْسَ مِثْلُكَ وَلَيْسَ إِلَهٌ غَيْرَكَ حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا سَمِعْنَاهُ بِآذَانِنَا. ٢٢ 22
Therefore you are great, Lord Yahweh, for there is no one like you, and there is no God besides you, as we have heard with our own ears.
وَأَيَّةُ أُمَّةٍ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ مِثْلُ شَعْبِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلَّذِي سَارَ ٱللهُ لِيَفْتَدِيَهُ لِنَفْسِهِ شَعْبًا، وَيَجْعَلَ لَهُ ٱسْمًا، وَيَعْمَلَ لَكُمُ ٱلْعَظَائِمَ وَٱلتَّخَاوِيفَ لِأَرْضِكَ أَمَامَ شَعْبِكَ ٱلَّذِي ٱفْتَدَيْتَهُ لِنَفْسِكَ مِنْ مِصْرَ، مِنَ ٱلشُّعُوبِ وَآلِهَتِهِمْ. ٢٣ 23
What nation is like your people Israel, the one nation on earth whom you, God, went and rescued for yourself? You did this so that they would become a people for yourself, to make a name for yourself, and to do great and fearful deeds for your land. You drove out nations and their gods from before your people, whom you rescued from Egypt.
وَثَبَّتَّ لِنَفْسِكَ شَعْبَكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، شَعْبًا لِنَفْسِكَ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ، وَأَنْتَ يَارَبُّ صِرْتَ لَهُمْ إِلَهًا. ٢٤ 24
You established Israel as your own people forever, and you, Yahweh, became their God.
وَٱلْآنَ أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلْإِلَهُ أَقِمْ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ ٱلْكَلَامَ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمْتَ بِهِ عَنْ عَبْدِكَ وَعَنْ بَيْتِهِ، وَٱفْعَلْ كَمَا نَطَقْتَ. ٢٥ 25
So now, Yahweh God, may the promise that you made concerning your servant and his family be established forever. Do as you have spoken.
وَلْيَتَعَظَّمِ ٱسْمُكَ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ، فَيُقَالَ: رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ إِلَهٌ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ. وَلْيَكُنْ بَيْتُ عَبْدِكَ دَاوُدَ ثَابِتًا أَمَامَكَ. ٢٦ 26
May your name be forever great, so the people will say, 'Yahweh of hosts is the God of Israel,' while the house of me, David, your servant is established before you.
لِأَنَّكَ أَنْتَ يَارَبَّ ٱلْجُنُودِ إِلَهَ إِسْرَائِيلَ قَدْ أَعْلَنْتَ لِعَبْدِكَ قَائِلًا: إِنِّي أَبْنِي لَكَ بَيْتًا، لِذَلِكَ وَجَدَ عَبْدُكَ فِي قَلْبِهِ أَنْ يُصَلِّيَ لَكَ هَذِهِ ٱلصَّلَاةَ. ٢٧ 27
For you, Yahweh of hosts, the God of Israel, have revealed to your servant that you will build him a house. That is why I, your servant, have found courage to pray to you.
وَٱلْآنَ يَا سَيِّدِي ٱلرَّبَّ أَنْتَ هُوَ ٱللهُ وَكَلَامُكَ هُوَ حَقٌّ، وَقَدْ كَلَّمْتَ عَبْدَكَ بِهَذَا ٱلْخَيْرِ. ٢٨ 28
Now, Lord Yahweh, you are God, and your words are trustworthy, and you have made this good promise to your servant.
فَٱلْآنَ ٱرْتَضِ وَبَارِكْ بَيْتَ عَبْدِكَ لِيَكُونَ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ أَمَامَكَ، لِأَنَّكَ أَنْتَ يَا سَيِّدِي ٱلرَّبَّ قَدْ تَكَلَّمْتَ. فَلْيُبَارَكْ بَيْتُ عَبْدِكَ بِبَرَكَتِكَ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ». ٢٩ 29
Now then, let it please you to bless the house of your servant, so that it may continue forever before you. For you, Lord Yahweh, have said these things, and with your blessing your servant's house will be blessed forever.”
