دَانِيآل 10

فِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلثَّالِثَةِ لِكُورَشَ مَلِكِ فَارِسَ كُشِفَ أَمْرٌ لِدَانِيآلَ ٱلَّذِي سُمِّيَ بِٱسْمِ بَلْطَشَاصَّرَ. وَٱلْأَمْرُ حَقٌّ وَٱلْجِهَادُ عَظِيمٌ، وَفَهِمَ ٱلْأَمْرَ وَلَهُ مَعْرِفَةُ ٱلرُّؤْيَا. ١ 1
In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia, a message was revealed to Daniel, who was also called Belteshazzar. This message was true. It was about a great war. Daniel understood the message when he had insight from the vision.
فِي تِلْكَ ٱلْأَيَّامِ أَنَا دَانِيآلَ كُنْتُ نَائِحًا ثَلَاثَةَ أَسَابِيعِ أَيَّامٍ ٢ 2
In those days I, Daniel, was in mourning for three weeks.
لَمْ آكُلْ طَعَامًا شَهِيًّا وَلَمْ يَدْخُلْ فِي فَمِي لَحْمٌ وَلَا خَمْرٌ، وَلَمْ أَدَّهِنْ حَتَّى تَمَّتْ ثَلَاثَةُ أَسَابِيعِ أَيَّامٍ. ٣ 3
I ate no delicacies, I ate no meat, I drank no wine, and I did not anoint myself with oil until the completion of three entire weeks.
وَفِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلرَّابِعِ وَٱلْعِشْرِينَ مِنَ ٱلشَّهْرِ ٱلْأَوَّلِ، إِذْ كُنْتُ عَلَى جَانِبِ ٱلنَّهْرِ ٱلْعَظِيمِ هُوَ دِجْلَةُ، ٤ 4
On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was beside the great river (that is, the Tigris),
رَفَعْتُ وَنَظَرْتُ فَإِذَا بِرَجُلٍ لَابِسٍ كَتَّانًا، وَحَقْوَاهُ مُتَنَطِّقَانِ بِذَهَبِ أُوفَازَ، ٥ 5
I looked up and saw a man dressed in linen, with a belt around his waist made of pure gold from Uphaz.
وَجِسْمُهُ كَٱلزَّبَرْجَدِ، وَوَجْهُهُ كَمَنْظَرِ ٱلْبَرْقِ، وَعَيْنَاهُ كَمِصْبَاحَيْ نَارٍ، وَذِرَاعَاهُ وَرِجْلَاهُ كَعَيْنِ ٱلنُّحَاسِ ٱلْمَصْقُولِ، وَصَوْتُ كَلَامِهِ كَصَوْتِ جُمْهُورٍ. ٦ 6
His body was like topaz, and his face was like lightning. His eyes were like flaming torches, and his arms and his feet were like polished bronze. The sound of his words was like the sound of a great crowd.
فَرَأَيْتُ أَنَا دَانِيآلُ ٱلرُّؤْيَا وَحْدِي، وَٱلرِّجَالُ ٱلَّذِينَ كَانُوا مَعِي لَمْ يَرَوْا ٱلرُّؤْيَا، لَكِنْ وَقَعَ عَلَيْهِمِ ٱرْتِعَادٌ عَظِيمٌ، فَهَرَبُوا لِيَخْتَبِئُوا. ٧ 7
I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, for the men who were with me did not see the vision. However, a great terror came on them, and they ran away to hide themselves.
فَبَقِيتُ أَنَا وَحْدِي، وَرَأَيْتُ هَذِهِ ٱلرُّؤْيَا ٱلْعَظِيمَةَ. وَلَمْ تَبْقَ فِيَّ قُوَّةٌ، وَنَضَارَتِي تَحَوَّلَتْ فِيَّ إِلَى فَسَادٍ، وَلَمْ أَضْبِطْ قُوَّةً. ٨ 8
So I was left alone and saw this great vision. No strength remained in me; my bright appearance was turned into a ruined look, and no strength remained in me.
وَسَمِعْتُ صَوْتَ كَلَامِهِ. وَلَمَّا سَمِعْتُ صَوْتَ كَلَامِهِ كُنْتُ مُسَبَّخًا عَلَى وَجْهِي، وَوَجْهِي إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٩ 9
Then I heard his words—and as I heard them, I fell on my face in deep sleep with my face to the ground.
وَإِذَا بِيَدٍ لَمَسَتْنِي وَأَقَامَتْنِي مُرْتَجِفًا عَلَى رُكْبَتَيَّ وَعَلَى كَفَّيْ يَدَيَّ. ١٠ 10
A hand touched me, and it made me tremble in my knees and the palms of my hands.
وَقَالَ لِي: «يَا دَانِيآلُ، أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّجُلُ ٱلْمَحْبُوبُ ٱفْهَمِ ٱلْكَلَامَ ٱلَّذِي أُكَلِّمُكَ بِهِ، وَقُمْ عَلَى مَقَامِكَ لِأَنِّي ٱلْآنَ أُرْسِلْتُ إِلَيْكَ». وَلَمَّا تَكَلَّمَ مَعِي بِهَذَا ٱلْكَلَامِ قُمْتُ مُرْتَعِدًا. ١١ 11
The angel said to me, “Daniel, man greatly treasured, understand the words that I am speaking to you. Stand upright, for I have been sent to you.” When he had spoken this message to me, I stood up trembling.
فَقَالَ لِي: «لَا تَخَفْ يَا دَانِيآلُ، لِأَنَّهُ مِنَ ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلْأَوَّلِ ٱلَّذِي فِيهِ جَعَلْتَ قَلْبَكَ لِلْفَهْمِ وَلِإِذْلَالِ نَفْسِكَ قُدَّامَ إِلَهِكَ، سُمِعَ كَلَامُكَ، وَأَنَا أَتَيْتُ لِأَجْلِ كَلَامِكَ. ١٢ 12
Then he said to me, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day you set your mind to understand and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come because of your words.
وَرَئِيسُ مَمْلَكَةِ فَارِسَ وَقَفَ مُقَابِلِي وَاحِدًا وَعِشْرِينَ يَوْمًا، وَهُوَذَا مِيخَائِيلُ وَاحِدٌ مِنَ ٱلرُّؤَسَاءِ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ جَاءَ لِإِعَانَتِي، وَأَنَا أُبْقِيتُ هُنَاكَ عِنْدَ مُلُوكِ فَارِسَ. ١٣ 13
The prince of the kingdom of Persia resisted me, and I was kept there with the kings of Persia for twenty-one days. But Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me.
وَجِئْتُ لِأُفْهِمَكَ مَا يُصِيبُ شَعْبَكَ فِي ٱلْأَيَّامِ ٱلْأَخِيرَةِ، لِأَنَّ ٱلرُّؤْيَا إِلَى أَيَّامٍ بَعْدُ». ١٤ 14
Now I have come to help you understand what will happen to your people in the last days. For the vision is for days yet to come.”
فَلَمَّا تَكَلَّمَ مَعِي بِمِثْلِ هَذَا ٱلْكَلَامِ جَعَلْتُ وَجْهِي إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَصَمَتُّ. ١٥ 15
While he was speaking to me using these words, I turned my face toward the ground and was unable to speak.
وَهُوَذَا كَشِبْهِ بَنِي آدَمَ لَمَسَ شَفَتَيَّ، فَفَتَحْتُ فَمِي وَتَكَلَّمْتُ وَقُلْتُ لِلْوَاقِفِ أَمَامِي: «يَا سَيِّدِي، بِٱلرُّؤْيَا ٱنْقَلَبَتْ عَلَيَّ أَوْجَاعِي فَمَا ضَبَطْتُ قُوَّةً. ١٦ 16
One who was like the sons of man touched my lips, and I opened my mouth and spoke to him who stood before me: “My master, I am in agony because of the vision; I have no strength left.
فَكَيْفَ يَسْتَطِيعُ عَبْدُ سَيِّدِي هَذَا أَنْ يَتَكَلَّمَ مَعَ سَيِّدِي هَذَا وَأَنَا فَحَالًا، لَمْ تَثْبُتْ فِيَّ قُوَّةٌ وَلَمْ تَبْقَ فِيَّ نَسَمَةٌ؟». ١٧ 17
I am your servant. How can I talk with my master? For I now have no strength, and there is no breath left in me.”
فَعَادَ وَلَمَسَنِي كَمَنْظَرِ إِنْسَانٍ وَقَوَّانِي، ١٨ 18
Again the one with an appearance of a man touched me and strengthened me.
وَقَالَ: «لَا تَخَفْ أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّجُلُ ٱلْمَحْبُوبُ. سَلَامٌ لَكَ. تَشَدَّدْ. تَقَوَّ». وَلَمَّا كَلَّمَنِي تَقَوَّيْتُ وَقُلْتُ: «لِيَتَكَلَّمْ سَيِّدِي لِأَنَّكَ قَوَّيْتَنِي». ١٩ 19
He said, “Do not be afraid, man greatly treasured. May peace be to you! Be strong now, be strong!” While he was speaking to me, I was strengthened. I said, “Let my master speak, for you have strengthened me.”
فَقَالَ: «هَلْ عَرَفْتَ لِمَاذَا جِئْتُ إِلَيْكَ؟ فَٱلْآنَ أَرْجِعُ وَأُحَارِبُ رَئِيسَ فَارِسَ. فَإِذَا خَرَجْتُ هُوَذَا رَئِيسُ ٱلْيُونَانِ يَأْتِي. ٢٠ 20
He said, “Do you know why I have come to you? I will soon return to fight against the prince of Persia. When I go, the prince of Greece will come.
وَلَكِنِّي أُخْبِرُكَ بِٱلْمَرْسُومِ فِي كِتَابِ ٱلْحَقِّ. وَلَا أَحَدٌ يَتَمَسَّكُ مَعِي عَلَى هَؤُلَاءِ إِلَّا مِيخَائِيلُ رَئِيسُكُمْ. ٢١ 21
But I will tell you what is written in the Book of Truth. There is no one who shows himself to be strong with me against them, except Michael your prince.”
