دَانِيآل 11

«وَأَنَا فِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلْأُولَى لِدَارِيُّوسَ ٱلْمَادِيِّ وَقَفْتُ لِأُشَدِّدَهُ وَأُقَوِّيَهُ. ١ 1
In the first year of Darius the Mede, I myself came to support and protect Michael.
وَٱلْآنَ أُخْبِرُكَ بِٱلْحَقِّ. هُوَذَا ثَلَاثَةُ مُلُوكٍ أَيْضًا يَقُومُونَ فِي فَارِسَ، وَٱلرَّابِعُ يَسْتَغْنِي بِغِنًى أَوْفَرَ مِنْ جَمِيعِهِمْ، وَحَسَبَ قُوَّتِهِ بِغِنَاهُ يُهَيِّجُ ٱلْجَمِيعَ عَلَى مَمْلَكَةِ ٱلْيُونَانِ. ٢ 2
Now I will tell you the truth. Three kings will arise in Persia, and a fourth will be far richer than all the others. When he has gained power through his riches, he will stir up everyone against the kingdom of Greece.
وَيَقُومُ مَلِكٌ جَبَّارٌ وَيَتَسَلَّطُ تَسَلُّطًا عَظِيمًا وَيَفْعَلُ حَسَبَ إِرَادَتِهِ. ٣ 3
A mighty king will rise up who will rule a very great kingdom, and he will act according to his desires.
وَكَقِيَامِهِ تَنْكَسِرُ مَمْلَكَتُهُ وَتَنْقَسِمُ إِلَى رِيَاحِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ ٱلْأَرْبَعِ، وَلَا لِعَقِبِهِ وَلَا حَسَبَ سُلْطَانِهِ ٱلَّذِي تَسَلَّطَ بِهِ، لِأَنَّ مَمْلَكَتَهُ تَنْقَرِضُ وَتَكُونُ لِآخَرِينَ غَيْرِ أُولَئِكَ. ٤ 4
When he has risen up, his kingdom will be broken and divided to the four winds of heaven, but not to his own descendants, and not with his power when he had been ruling. For his kingdom will be uprooted for others besides his descendants.
وَيَتَقَوَّى مَلِكُ ٱلْجَنُوبِ. وَمِنْ رُؤَسَائِهِ مَنْ يَقْوَى عَلَيْهِ وَيَتَسَلَّطُ. تَسَلُّطٌ عَظِيمٌ تَسَلُّطُهُ. ٥ 5
The king of the South will become strong, but one of his commanders will become even stronger than he and will rule his kingdom with great power.
وَبَعْدَ سِنِينَ يَتَعَاهَدَانِ، وَبِنْتُ مَلِكِ ٱلْجَنُوبِ تَأْتِي إِلَى مَلِكِ ٱلشِّمَالِ لِإِجْرَاءِ ٱلِٱتِّفَاقِ، وَلَكِنْ لَا تَضْبِطُ ٱلذِّرَاعُ قُوَّةً، وَلَا يَقُومُ هُوَ وَلَا ذِرَاعُهُ. وَتُسَلَّمُ هِيَ وَٱلَّذِينَ أَتَوْا بِهَا وَٱلَّذِي وَلَدَهَا وَمَنْ قَوَّاهَا فِي تِلْكَ ٱلْأَوْقَاتِ. ٦ 6
After a few years, when the time is right, they will make an alliance. The daughter of the king of the South will come to the king of the North to confirm the agreement. But she will not keep her arm's strength, nor will he stand, or his arm. She will be abandoned—she and those who brought her, and her father, and the one who supported her in those times.
وَيَقُومُ مِنْ فَرْعِ أُصُولِهَا قَائِمٌ مَكَانَهُ، وَيَأْتِي إِلَى ٱلْجَيْشِ وَيَدْخُلُ حِصْنَ مَلِكِ ٱلشِّمَالِ وَيَعْمَلُ بِهِمْ وَيَقْوَى. ٧ 7
But a branch from her roots will rise up in her place. He will attack the army and enter the fortress of the king of the North. He will fight them, and he will conquer them.
وَيَسْبِي إِلَى مِصْرَ آلِهَتَهُمْ أَيْضًا مَعَ مَسْبُوكَاتِهِمْ وَآنِيَتِهِمِ ٱلثَّمِينَةِ مِنْ فِضَّةٍ وَذَهَبٍ، وَيَقْتَصِرُ سِنِينَ عَنْ مَلِكِ ٱلشِّمَالِ. ٨ 8
He will carry off to Egypt their gods along with their cast metal figures and their precious vessels of silver and of gold. For some years he will stay away from the king of the North.
فَيَدْخُلُ مَلِكُ ٱلْجَنُوبِ إِلَى مَمْلَكَتِهِ وَيَرْجِعُ إِلَى أَرْضِهِ. ٩ 9
Then the king of the North will invade the realm of the king of the South, but he will withdraw to his own land.
«وَبَنُوهُ يَتَهَيَّجُونَ فَيَجْمَعُونَ جُمْهُورَ جُيُوشٍ عَظِيمَةٍ، وَيَأْتِي آتٍ وَيَغْمُرُ وَيَطْمُو وَيَرْجِعُ وَيُحَارِبُ حَتَّى إِلَى حِصْنِهِ. ١٠ 10
His sons will get ready and assemble a great army. It will keep coming and will flood everything; it will pass through all the way to his fortress.
وَيَغْتَاظُ مَلِكُ ٱلْجَنُوبِ وَيَخْرُجُ وَيُحَارِبُهُ أَيْ مَلِكَ ٱلشِّمَالِ، وَيُقِيمُ جُمْهُورًا عَظِيمًا فَيُسَلَّمُ ٱلْجُمْهُورُ فِي يَدِهِ. ١١ 11
Then the king of the South will become very angry; he will go and fight against him, the king of the North. The king of the North will raise up a great army, but the army will be given into his hand.
فَإِذَا رُفِعَ ٱلْجُمْهُورُ يَرِتْفِعُ قَلْبُهُ وَيَطْرَحُ رَبَوَاتٍ وَلَا يَعْتَزُّ. ١٢ 12
The army will be carried off, and the heart of the king of the South will be lifted up, and he will make tens of thousands to fall, but he will not be victorious.
فَيَرْجِعُ مَلِكُ ٱلشِّمَالِ وَيُقِيمُ جُمْهُورًا أَكْثَرَ مِنَ ٱلْأَوَّلِ، وَيَأْتِي بَعْدَ حِينٍ، بَعْدَ سِنِينَ بِجَيْشٍ عَظِيمٍ وَثَرْوَةٍ جَزِيلَةٍ. ١٣ 13
Then the king of the North will raise up another army, greater than the first. After some years, the king of the North will surely come with a great army supplied with much equipment.
وَفِي تِلْكَ ٱلْأَوْقَاتِ يَقُومُ كَثِيرُونَ عَلَى مَلِكِ ٱلْجَنُوبِ، وَبَنُو ٱلْعُتَاةِ مِنْ شَعْبِكَ يَقُومُونَ لِإِثْبَاتِ ٱلرُّؤْيَا وَيَعْثُرُونَ. ١٤ 14
In those times many will rise against the king of the South. Sons of the violent among your people will set themselves in order to fulfill a vision, but they will stumble.
فَيَأْتِي مَلِكُ ٱلشِّمَالِ وَيُقِيمُ مِتْرَسَةً وَيَأْخُذُ ٱلْمَدِينَةَ ٱلْحَصِينَةَ، فَلَا تَقُومُ أَمَامَهُ ذِرَاعَا ٱلْجَنُوبِ وَلَا قَوْمُهُ ٱلْمُنْتَخَبُ، وَلَا تَكُونُ لَهُ قُوَّةٌ لِلْمُقَاوَمَةِ. ١٥ 15
The king of the North will come, pour out earth for siege mounds, and capture a city with fortifications. The forces of the South will not be able to stand, not even their best soldiers. There will be no strength to stand.
وَٱلْآتِي عَلَيْهِ يَفْعَلُ كَإِرَادَتِهِ وَلَيْسَ مَنْ يَقِفُ أَمَامَهُ، وَيَقُومُ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلْبَهِيَّةِ وَهِيَ بِٱلتَّمَامِ بِيَدِهِ. ١٦ 16
Instead, the one who comes will act according to his desires against him; no one will stand in his way. He will stand in the land of beauty, and destruction will be in his hand.
وَيَجْعَلُ وَجْهَهُ لِيَدْخُلَ بِسُلْطَانِ كُلِّ مَمْلَكَتِهِ، وَيَجْعَلُ مَعَهُ صُلْحًا، وَيُعْطِيهِ بِنْتَ ٱلنِّسَاءِ لِيُفْسِدَهَا، فَلَا تَثْبُتَ وَلَا تَكُونَ لَهُ. ١٧ 17
The king of the North will set his face to come with the strength of his entire kingdom, and with him will be an agreement that he will make with the king of the South. He will give him a daughter of women in marriage to ruin the kingdom of the South. But the plan will not succeed or help him.
وَيُحَوِّلُ وَجْهَهُ إِلَى ٱلْجَزَائِرِ وَيَأْخُذُ كَثِيرًا مِنْهَا، وَيُزِيلُ رَئِيسٌ تَعْيِيرَهُ فَضْلًا عَنْ رَدِّ تَعْيِيرِهِ عَلَيْهِ. ١٨ 18
After this, the king of the North will pay attention to the coastlands and will capture many of them. But a commander will end his arrogance and will cause his arrogance to turn back upon him.
وَيُحَوِّلُ وَجْهَهُ إِلَى حُصُونِ أَرْضِهِ وَيَعْثُرُ وَيَسْقُطُ وَلَا يُوجَدُ. ١٩ 19
Then he will pay attention to the fortresses of his own land, but he will stumble and fall; he will not be found.
«فَيَقُومُ مَكَانَهُ مَنْ يُعَبِّرُ جَابِيَ ٱلْجِزْيَةِ فِي فَخْرِ ٱلْمَمْلَكَةِ، وَفِي أَيَّامٍ قَلِيلَةٍ يَنْكَسِرُ لَا بِغَضَبٍ وَلَا بِحَرْبٍ. ٢٠ 20
Then someone will rise up in his place who will make a tax collector pass through for the sake of the splendor of the kingdom. But in the next days he will be broken, but not in anger or in battle.
فَيَقُومُ مَكَانَهُ مُحْتَقَرٌ لَمْ يَجْعَلُوا عَلَيْهِ فَخْرَ ٱلْمَمْلَكَةِ، وَيَأْتِي بَغْتَةً وَيُمْسِكُ ٱلْمَمْلَكَةَ بِٱلتَّمَلُّقَاتِ. ٢١ 21
In his place will rise up a despised person to whom the people will not have given the honor of royal power; he will come unexpectedly and will take over the kingdom by trickery.
وَأَذْرُعُ ٱلْجَارِفِ تُجْرَفُ مِنْ قُدَّامِهِ وَتَنْكَسِرُ، وَكَذَلِكَ رَئِيسُ ٱلْعَهْدِ. ٢٢ 22
An army will be swept away like a flood from before him. Both that army and the leader of the covenant will be destroyed.
وَمِنَ ٱلْمُعَاهَدَةِ مَعَهُ يَعْمَلُ بِٱلْمَكْرِ وَيَصْعَدُ وَيَعْظُمُ بِقَوْمٍ قَلِيلٍ. ٢٣ 23
From the time an alliance is made with him, he will act deceitfully; with only a small number of people he will become strong.
يَدْخُلُ بَغْتَةً عَلَى أَسْمَنِ ٱلْبِلَادِ وَيَفْعَلُ مَا لَمْ يَفْعَلْهُ آبَاؤُهُ وَلَا آبَاءُ آبَائِهِ. يَبْذُرُ بَيْنَهُمْ نَهْبًا وَغَنِيمَةً وَغِنًى، وَيُفَكِّرُ أَفْكَارَهُ عَلَى ٱلْحُصُونِ، وَذَلِكَ إِلَى حِينٍ. ٢٤ 24
Without warning he will come into the richest part of the province, and he will do what neither his father nor his father's father did. He will spread among his followers the booty, the plunder, and the wealth. He will plan the overthrow of fortresses, but only for a time.
وَيُنْهِضُ قُوَّتَهُ وَقَلْبَهُ عَلَى مَلِكِ ٱلْجَنُوبِ بِجَيْشٍ عَظِيمٍ، وَمَلِكُ ٱلْجَنُوبِ يَتَهَيَّجُ إِلَى ٱلْحَرْبِ بِجَيْشٍ عَظِيمٍ وَقَوِيٍّ جِدًّا، وَلَكِنَّهُ لَا يَثْبُتُ لِأَنَّهُمْ يُدَبِّرُونَ عَلَيْهِ تَدَابِيرَ. ٢٥ 25
He will wake up his power and his heart against the king of the South with a great army. The king of the South will wage war with a large, very powerful army, but he will not stand because others will make plots against him.
وَٱلْآكِلُونَ أَطَايِبَهُ يَكْسِرُونَهُ، وَجَيْشُهُ يَطْمُو، وَيَسْقُطُ كَثِيرُونَ قَتْلَى. ٢٦ 26
Even those who eat his fine food will try to destroy him. His army will be swept away like a flood, and many of them will fall killed.
وَهَذَانِ ٱلْمَلِكَانِ قَلْبُهُمَا لِفِعْلِ ٱلشَّرِّ، وَيَتَكَلَّمَانِ بِٱلْكَذِبِ عَلَى مَائِدَةٍ وَاحِدَةٍ وَلَا يَنْجَحُ، لِأَنَّ ٱلِٱنْتِهَاءَ بَعْدُ إِلَى مِيعَادٍ. ٢٧ 27
Both these kings, with their hearts set on evil against each other, will sit at the same table and lie to each other, but it will be of no use. For the end will come at the time that has been fixed.
فَيَرْجِعُ إِلَى أَرْضِهِ بِغِنًى جَزِيلٍ وَقَلْبُهُ عَلَى ٱلْعَهْدِ ٱلْمُقَدَّسِ، فَيَعْمَلُ وَيَرْجِعُ إِلَى أَرْضِهِ. ٢٨ 28
Then the king of the North will go back into his land with great riches, with his heart set against the holy covenant. He will act and then will return to his own land.
«وَفِي ٱلْمِيعَادِ يَعُودُ وَيَدْخُلُ ٱلْجَنُوبَ، وَلَكِنْ لَا يَكُونُ ٱلْآخِرُ كَٱلْأَوَّلِ. ٢٩ 29
At the appointed time he will return and come against the South again. But this time it will not be as before.
فَتَأْتِي عَلَيْهِ سُفُنٌ مِنْ كِتِّيمَ فَيَيْئَسُ وَيَرْجِعُ وَيَغْتَاظُ عَلَى ٱلْعَهْدِ ٱلْمُقَدَّسِ، وَيَعْمَلُ وَيَرْجِعُ وَيَصْغَى إِلَى ٱلَّذِينَ تَرَكُوا ٱلْعَهْدَ ٱلْمُقَدَّسَ. ٣٠ 30
For ships of Kittim will come against him, and he will become afraid and will turn back. He will be furious against the holy covenant, and he will show favor to those who forsake the holy covenant.
وَتَقُومُ مِنْهُ أَذْرُعٌ وَتُنَجِّسُ ٱلْمَقْدِسَ ٱلْحَصِينَ، وَتَنْزِعُ ٱلْمُحْرَقَةَ ٱلدَّائِمَةَ، وَتَجْعَلُ ٱلرِّجْسَ ٱلْمُخَرِّبَ. ٣١ 31
His forces will rise up and profane the fortress sanctuary. They will take away the regular burnt offering, and they will set up the abomination that causes desolation.
وَٱلْمُتَعَدُّونَ عَلَى ٱلْعَهْدِ يُغْوِيهِمْ بِٱلتَّمَلُّقَاتِ. أَمَّا ٱلشَّعْبُ ٱلَّذِينَ يَعْرِفُونَ إِلَهَهُمْ فَيَقْوَوْنَ وَيَعْمَلُونَ. ٣٢ 32
As for those who acted wickedly against the covenant, he will deceive them and corrupt them. But the people who know their God will be strong and will take action.
وَٱلْفَاهِمُونَ مِنَ ٱلشَّعْبِ يُعَلِّمُونَ كَثِيرِينَ. وَيَعْثُرُونَ بِٱلسَّيْفِ وَبِاللَّهِيبِ وَبِالسَّبْيِ وَبِالنَّهْبِ أَيَّامًا. ٣٣ 33
The wise among the people will make many understand. But they will stumble by the sword and by flame; they will stumble into captivity and into being robbed for days.
فَإِذَا عَثَرُوا يُعَانُونَ عَوْنًا قَلِيلًا، وَيَتَّصِلُ بِهِمْ كَثِيرُونَ بِٱلتَّمَلُّقَاتِ. ٣٤ 34
In their stumbling, they will be helped with a little help. In hypocrisy many will join themselves with them.
وَبَعْضُ ٱلْفَاهِمِينَ يَعْثُرُونَ ٱمْتِحَانًا لَهُمْ لِلتَّطْهِيرِ وَلِلتَّبْيِيضِ إِلَى وَقْتِ ٱلنِّهَايَةِ. لِأَنَّهُ بَعْدُ إِلَى ٱلْمِيعَادِ. ٣٥ 35
Some of the wise will stumble so that refining will happen to them, and cleansing, and purifying, until the time of the end. For the appointed time is still to come.
«وَيَفْعَلُ ٱلْمَلِكُ كَإِرَادَتِهِ، وَيَرْتَفِعُ وَيَتَعَظَّمُ عَلَى كُلِّ إِلَهٍ، وَيَتَكَلَّمُ بِأُمُورٍ عَجِيبَةٍ عَلَى إِلَهِ ٱلْآلِهَةِ، وَيَنْجَحُ إِلَى إِتْمَامِ ٱلْغَضَبِ، لِأَنَّ ٱلْمَقْضِيَّ بِهِ يُجْرَى. ٣٦ 36
The king will act according to his desires. He will lift himself up and make himself great above every god. Against the God of gods he will say astonishing things, for he will succeed until the wrath is completed. For what has been decreed will be done.
وَلَا يُبَالِي بِآلِهَةِ آبَائِهِ وَلَا بِشَهْوَةِ ٱلنِّسَاءِ، وَبِكُلِّ إِلَهٍ لَا يُبَالِي لِأَنَّهُ يَتَعَظَّمُ عَلَى ٱلْكُلِّ. ٣٧ 37
He will pay no attention to the gods of his ancestors or to the god desirable to women. Neither will he will pay attention to any other god. For all above every one he will make himself great.
وَيُكْرِمُ إِلَهَ ٱلْحُصُونِ فِي مَكَانِهِ، وَإِلَهًا لَمْ تَعْرِفْهُ آبَاؤُهُ، يُكْرِمُهُ بِٱلذَّهَبِ وَٱلْفِضَّةِ وَبِالْحِجَارَةِ ٱلْكَرِيمَةِ وَٱلنَّفَائِسِ. ٣٨ 38
He will honor the god of fortresses instead of these. It is a god whom his fathers did not acknowledge that he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and valuable gifts.
وَيَفْعَلُ فِي ٱلْحُصُونِ ٱلْحَصِينَةِ بِإِلَهٍ غَرِيبٍ. مَنْ يَعْرِفُهُ يَزِيدُهُ مَجْدًا، وَيُسَلِّطُهُمْ عَلَى كَثِيرِينَ، وَيَقْسِمُ ٱلْأَرْضَ أُجْرَةً. ٣٩ 39
He will attack the strongest fortresses with the help of a foreign god. To anyone who acknowledges him, he will give much honor. He will make them rulers over many people, and he will divide up the land as a reward.
«فَفِي وَقْتِ ٱلنِّهَايَةِ يُحَارِبُهُ مَلِكُ ٱلْجَنُوبِ، فَيَثُورُ عَلَيْهِ مَلِكُ ٱلشِّمَالِ بِمَرْكَبَاتٍ وَبِفُرْسَانٍ وَبِسُفُنٍ كَثِيرَةٍ، وَيَدْخُلُ ٱلْأَرَاضِيَ وَيَجْرُفُ وَيَطْمُو. ٤٠ 40
At the time of the end the king of the South will attack. The king of the North will storm against him with chariots and horsemen, and with many ships. He will go against lands, flood them, and pass through.
وَيَدْخُلُ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلْبَهِيَّةِ فَيُعْثَرُ كَثِيرُونَ، وَهَؤُلَاءِ يُفْلِتُونَ مِنْ يَدِهِ: أَدُومُ وَمُوآبُ وَرُؤَسَاءُ بَنِي عَمُّونَ. ٤١ 41
He will go into the land of beauty, and tens of thousands of Israelites will fall. But these will escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the remainder of the people of Ammon.
وَيَمُدُّ يَدَهُ عَلَى ٱلْأَرَاضِي، وَأَرْضُ مِصْرَ لَا تَنْجُو. ٤٢ 42
He will extend his hand into lands; the land of Egypt will not be rescued.
وَيَتَسَلَّطُ عَلَى كُنُوزِ ٱلذَّهَبِ وَٱلْفِضَّةِ وَعَلَى كُلِّ نَفَائِسِ مِصْرَ. وَٱللُّوبِيُّونَ وَٱلْكُوشِيُّونَ عِنْدَ خُطُوَاتِهِ. ٤٣ 43
He will have control over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the riches of Egypt; the Libyans and the Cushites will be in his footsteps.
وَتُفْزِعُهُ أَخْبَارٌ مِنَ ٱلشَّرْقِ وَمِنَ ٱلشِّمَالِ، فَيَخْرُجُ بِغَضَبٍ عَظِيمٍ لِيُخْرِبَ وَلِيُحَرِّمَ كَثِيرِينَ. ٤٤ 44
But news from the east and the north will frighten him, and he will go out with great rage to completely destroy and to set many apart for destruction.
وَيَنْصُبُ فُسْطَاطَهُ بَيْنَ ٱلْبُحُورِ وَجَبَلِ بَهَاءِ ٱلْقُدْسِ، وَيَبْلُغُ نِهَايَتَهُ وَلَا مُعِينَ لَهُ. ٤٥ 45
He will set up the tent of his royal residence between the seas and the mountain of the beauty of holiness. He will come to his end, and there will be no helper for him.
