نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ ٱلْمَلِكُ صَنَعَ تِمْثَالًا مِنْ ذَهَبٍ طُولُهُ سِتُّونَ ذِرَاعًا وَعَرْضُهُ سِتُّ أَذْرُعٍ، وَنَصَبَهُ فِي بُقْعَةِ دُورَا فِي وِلَايَةِ بَابِلَ. ١ 1
King Nebuchadnezzar made a gold statue that was sixty cubits tall and six cubits wide. He set it up in the Plain of Dura in the province of Babylon.
ثُمَّ أَرْسَلَ نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ ٱلْمَلِكُ لِيَجْمَعَ ٱلْمَرَازِبَةَ وَٱلشِّحَنَ وَٱلْوُلَاةَ وَٱلْقُضَاةَ وَٱلْخَزَنَةَ وَٱلْفُقَهَاءَ وَٱلْمُفْتِينَ وَكُلَّ حُكَّامِ ٱلْوِلَايَاتِ، لِيَأْتُوا لِتَدْشِينِ ٱلتِّمْثَالِ ٱلَّذِي نَصَبَهُ نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ ٱلْمَلِكُ. ٢ 2
Then Nebuchadnezzar sent messages out to gather together the provincial governors, regional governors, and local governors, together with the counselors, treasurers, judges, magistrates, and all the high officials of the provinces to come to the dedication of the statue that he had set up.
حِينَئِذٍ ٱجْتَمَعَ ٱلْمَرَازِبَةُ وَٱلشِّحَنُ وَٱلْوُلَاةُ وَٱلْقُضَاةُ وَٱلْخَزَنَةُ وَٱلْفُقَهَاءُ وَٱلْمُفْتُونَ وَكُلُّ حُكَّامِ ٱلْوِلَايَاتِ لِتَدْشِينِ ٱلتِّمْثَالِ ٱلَّذِي نَصَبَهُ نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ ٱلْمَلِكُ، وَوَقَفُوا أَمَامَ ٱلتِّمْثَالِ ٱلَّذِي نَصَبَهُ نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ. ٣ 3
Then the provincial governors, regional governors, and local governors, together with the counselors, treasurers, judges, magistrates, and all the high officials of the provinces gathered together to the dedication of the statue that Nebuchadnezzar had set up. They stood before it.
وَنَادَى مُنَادٍ بِشِدَّةٍ: «قَدْ أُمِرْتُمْ أَيُّهَا ٱلشُّعُوبُ وَٱلْأُمَمُ وَٱلْأَلْسِنَةُ، ٤ 4
Then a herald loudly shouted, “You are commanded, peoples, nations, and languages,
عِنْدَمَا تَسْمَعُونَ صَوْتَ ٱلْقَرْنِ وَٱلنَّايِ وَٱلْعُودِ وَٱلرَّبَابِ وَٱلسِّنْطِيرِ وَٱلْمِزْمَارِ وَكُلِّ أَنْوَاعِ ٱلْعَزْفِ، أَنْ تَخِرُّوا وَتَسْجُدُوا لِتِمْثَالِ ٱلذَّهَبِ ٱلَّذِي نَصَبَهُ نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ ٱلْمَلِكُ. ٥ 5
that at the time you hear the sound of the horns, flutes, zithers, lyres, harps, and pipes, and all kinds of music, you must fall down and prostrate yourselves to the golden statue that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up.
وَمَنْ لَا يَخِرُّ وَيَسْجُدُ، فَفِي تِلْكَ ٱلسَّاعَةِ يُلْقَى فِي وَسَطِ أَتُّونِ نَارٍ مُتَّقِدَةٍ». ٦ 6
Whoever does not fall down and worship, at that very moment, will be thrown into a blazing furnace.”
لِأَجْلِ ذَلِكَ وَقْتَمَا سَمِعَ كُلُّ ٱلشُّعُوبِ صَوْتَ ٱلْقَرْنِ وَٱلنَّايِ وَٱلْعُودِ وَٱلرَّبَابِ وَٱلسِّنْطِيرِ وَكُلِّ أَنْوَاعِ ٱلْعَزْفِ، خَرَّ كُلُّ ٱلشُّعُوبِ وَٱلْأُمَمِ وَٱلْأَلْسِنَةِ وَسَجَدُوا لِتِمْثَالِ ٱلذَّهَبِ ٱلَّذِي نَصَبَهُ نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ ٱلْمَلِكُ. ٧ 7
So when all the peoples heard the sounds of the horns, flutes, zithers, lyres, harps, and pipes, and all kinds of music, all the peoples, nations, and languages fell down and prostrated themselves to the golden statue that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.
لِأَجْلِ ذَلِكَ تَقَدَّمَ حِينَئِذٍ رِجَالٌ كَلْدَانِيُّونَ وَٱشْتَكَوْا عَلَى ٱلْيَهُودِ، ٨ 8
Now at this time certain Chaldeans came and brought accusations against the Jews.
أَجَابُوا وَقَالُوا لِلْمَلِكِ نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرَ: «أَيُّهَا ٱلْمَلِكُ، عِشْ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ! ٩ 9
They said to Nebuchadnezzar the king, “King, live forever!
أَنْتَ أَيُّهَا ٱلْمَلِكُ قَدْ أَصْدَرْتَ أَمْرًا بِأَنَّ كُلَّ إِنْسَانٍ يَسْمَعُ صَوْتَ ٱلْقَرْنِ وَٱلنَّايِ وَٱلْعُودِ وَٱلرَّبَابِ وَٱلسِّنْطِيرِ وَٱلْمِزْمَارِ وَكُلِّ أَنْوَاعِ ٱلْعَزْفِ، يَخِرُّ وَيَسْجُدُ لِتِمْثَالِ ٱلذَّهَبِ. ١٠ 10
You, king, have made a decree that every person who hears the sounds of the horns, flutes, zithers, lyres, harps, and pipes, and all kinds of music, must fall down and prostrate himself to the golden statue.
وَمَنْ لَا يَخِرُّ وَيَسْجُدُ فَإِنَّهُ يُلْقَى فِي وَسَطِ أَتُّونِ نَارٍ مُتَّقِدَةٍ. ١١ 11
Whoever does not fall down and worship must be thrown into a blazing furnace.
يُوجَدُ رِجَالٌ يَهُودٌ، ٱلَّذِينَ وَكَّلْتَهُمْ عَلَى أَعْمَالِ وِلَايَةِ بَابِلَ: شَدْرَخُ وَمِيشَخُ وَعَبْدَنَغُوَ. هَؤُلَاءِ ٱلرِّجَالُ لَمْ يَجْعَلُوا لَكَ أَيُّهَا ٱلْمَلِكُ ٱعْتِبَارًا. آلِهَتُكَ لَا يَعْبُدُونَ، وَلِتِمْثَالِ ٱلذَّهَبِ ٱلَّذِي نَصَبْتَ لَا يَسْجُدُونَ». ١٢ 12
Now there are certain Jews whom you have appointed over the affairs of the province of Babylon; their names are Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. These men, king, pay no attention to you. They will not worship or serve your gods, or prostrate themselves before the golden statue you have set up.”
حِينَئِذٍ أَمَرَ نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ بِغَضَبٍ وَغَيْظٍ بِإِحْضَارِ شَدْرَخَ وَمِيشَخَ وَعَبْدَنَغُوَ. فَأَتَوْا بِهَؤُلَاءِ ٱلرِّجَالِ قُدَّامَ ٱلْمَلِكِ. ١٣ 13
Then Nebuchadnezzar, filled with anger and rage, commanded that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego be brought to him. So they brought these men before the king.
فَأَجَابَ نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «تَعَمُّدًا يَا شَدْرَخُ وَمِيشَخُ وَعَبْدَنَغُوَ لَا تَعْبُدُونَ آلِهَتِي وَلَا تَسْجُدُونَ لِتِمْثَالِ ٱلذَّهَبِ ٱلَّذِي نَصَبْتُ! ١٤ 14
Nebuchadnezzar said to them, “Have you made your minds up, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, that you will not worship my gods or prostrate yourselves to the golden statue that I have set up?
فَإِنْ كُنْتُمُ ٱلْآنَ مُسْتَعِدِّينَ عِنْدَمَا تَسْمَعُونَ صَوْتَ ٱلْقَرْنِ وَٱلنَّايِ وَٱلْعُودِ وَٱلرَّبَابِ وَٱلسِّنْطِيرِ وَٱلْمِزْمَارِ وَكُلَّ أَنْوَاعِ ٱلْعَزْفِ إِلَى أَنْ تَخِرُّوا وَتَسْجُدُوا لِلتِّمْثَالِ ٱلَّذِي عَمِلْتُهُ. وَإِنْ لَمْ تَسْجُدُوا فَفِي تِلْكَ ٱلسَّاعَةِ تُلْقَوْنَ فِي وَسَطِ أَتُّونِ ٱلنَّارِ ٱلْمُتَّقِدَةِ. وَمَنْ هُوَ ٱلْإِلَهُ ٱلَّذِي يُنْقِذُكُمْ مِنْ يَدَيَّ؟». ١٥ 15
Now if you are ready—when you hear the sounds of the horns, flutes, zithers, lyres, harps, and pipes, and all kinds of music—to fall down and prostrate yourselves to the statue that I have made, all will be well. But if you do not worship, you will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace. Who is the god who is able to rescue you out of my hands?”
فَأَجَابَ شَدْرَخُ وَمِيشَخُ وَعَبْدَنَغُوَ وَقَالُوا لِلمَلِكِ: «يَا نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ، لَا يَلْزَمُنَا أَنْ نُجِيبَكَ عَنْ هَذَا ٱلْأَمْرِ. ١٦ 16
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered the king, “Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter.
هُوَذَا يُوجَدُ إِلَهُنَا ٱلَّذِي نَعْبُدُهُ يَسْتَطِيعُ أَنْ يُنَجِّيَنَا مِنْ أَتُّونِ ٱلنَّارِ ٱلْمُتَّقِدَةِ، وَأَنْ يُنْقِذَنَا مِنْ يَدِكَ أَيُّهَا ٱلْمَلِكُ. ١٧ 17
If there is an answer, it is that our God whom we serve is able to keep us safe from the blazing furnace, and he will rescue us out of your hand, king.
وَإِلَّا فَلْيَكُنْ مَعْلُومًا لَكَ أَيُّهَا ٱلْمَلِكُ، أَنَّنَا لَا نَعْبُدُ آلِهَتَكَ وَلَا نَسْجُدُ لِتِمْثَالِ ٱلذَّهَبِ ٱلَّذِي نَصَبْتَهُ». ١٨ 18
But if not, let it be known to you, king, that we will not worship your gods, and we will not prostrate ourselves to the golden statue you set up.”
حِينَئِذٍ ٱمْتَلَأَ نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ غَيْظًا وَتَغَيَّرَ مَنْظَرُ وَجْهِهِ عَلَى شَدْرَخَ وَمِيشَخَ وَعَبْدَنَغُوَ، فَأَجَابَ وَأَمَرَ بِأَنْ يَحْمُوا ٱلْأَتُونَ سَبْعَةَ أَضْعَافٍ أَكْثَرَ مِمَّا كَانَ مُعْتَادًا أَنْ يُحْمَى. ١٩ 19
Then Nebuchadnezzar was filled with rage; the look on his face changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. He commanded that the furnace should be heated seven times hotter than it was normally heated.
وَأَمَرَ جَبَابِرَةَ ٱلْقُوَّةِ فِي جَيْشِهِ بِأَنْ يُوثِقُوا شَدْرَخَ وَمِيشَخَ وَعَبْدَنَغُوَ وَيُلْقُوهُمْ فِي أَتُّونِ ٱلنَّارِ ٱلْمُتَّقِدَةِ. ٢٠ 20
Then he commanded some very strong men in his army to tie up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and to throw them into the blazing furnace.
ثُمَّ أُوثِقَ هَؤُلَاءِ ٱلرِّجَالُ فِي سَرَاوِيلِهِمْ وَأَقْمِصَتِهِمْ وَأَرْدِيَتِهِمْ وَلِبَاسِهِمْ وَأُلْقُوا فِي وَسَطِ أَتُّونِ ٱلنَّارِ ٱلْمُتَّقِدَةِ. ٢١ 21
They were tied up still wearing their robes, tunics, turbans, and other clothing, and they were thrown into the blazing furnace.
وَمِنْ حَيْثُ إِنَّ كَلِمَةَ ٱلْمَلِكِ شَدِيدَةٌ وَٱلْأَتُونَ قَدْ حَمِيَ جِدًّا، قَتَلَ لَهِيبُ ٱلنَّارِ ٱلرِّجَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ رَفَعُوا شَدْرَخَ وَمِيشَخَ وَعَبْدَنَغُوَ. ٢٢ 22
Because the king's command was strictly followed and the furnace was very hot, the flames killed the men who took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
وَهَؤُلَاءِ ٱلثَّلَاثَةُ ٱلرِّجَالِ، شَدْرَخُ وَمِيشَخُ وَعَبْدَنَغُوَ، سَقَطُوا مُوثَقِينَ فِي وَسَطِ أَتُّونِ ٱلنَّارِ ٱلْمُتَّقِدَةِ. ٢٣ 23
These three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell into the blazing furnace while they were tied up.
حِينَئِذٍ تَحَيَّرَ نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَقَامَ مُسْرِعًا فَأَجَابَ وَقَالَ لِمُشِيرِيهِ: «أَلَمْ نُلْقِ ثَلَاثَةَ رِجَالٍ مُوثَقِينَ فِي وَسَطِ ٱلنَّارِ؟» فَأَجَابُوا وَقَالُوا لِلْمَلِكِ: «صَحِيحٌ أَيُّهَا ٱلْمَلِكُ». ٢٤ 24
Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was amazed and stood up quickly. He asked his advisors, “Did we not throw three men tied up into the fire?” They replied to the king, “Certainly, king.”
أَجَابَ وَقَالَ: «هَا أَنَا نَاظِرٌ أَرْبَعَةَ رِجَالٍ مَحْلُولِينَ يَتَمَشَّوْنَ فِي وَسَطِ ٱلنَّارِ وَمَا بِهِمْ ضَرَرٌ، وَمَنْظَرُ ٱلرَّابِعِ شَبِيهٌ بِٱبْنِ ٱلْآلِهَةِ». ٢٥ 25
He said, “But I see four men who are not tied up walking around in the fire, and they are not hurt. The brilliance of the fourth is like a son of the gods.”
ثُمَّ ٱقْتَرَبَ نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ إِلَى بَابِ أَتُّونِ ٱلنَّارِ ٱلْمُتَّقِدَةِ وَأَجَابَ، فَقَالَ: «يَا شَدْرَخُ وَمِيشَخُ وَعَبْدَنَغُو، يَا عَبِيدَ ٱللهِ ٱلْعَلِيِّ، ٱخْرُجُوا وَتَعَالَوْا». فَخَرَجَ شَدْرَخُ وَمِيشَخُ وَعَبْدَنَغُو مِنْ وَسَطِ ٱلنَّارِ. ٢٦ 26
Then Nebuchadnezzar came near the door of the blazing furnace and called out, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, servants of God Most High, come out! Come here!” Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego came out of the fire.
فَٱجْتَمَعَتِ ٱلْمَرَازِبَةُ وَٱلشِّحَنُ وَٱلْوُلَاةُ وَمُشِيرُو ٱلْمَلِكِ وَرَأَوْا هَؤُلَاءِ ٱلرِّجَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَمْ تَكُنْ لِلنَّارِ قُوَّةٌ عَلَى أَجْسَامِهِمْ، وَشَعْرَةٌ مِنْ رُؤُوسِهِمْ لَمْ تَحْتَرِقْ، وَسَرَاوِيلُهُمْ لَمْ تَتَغَيَّرْ، وَرَائِحَةُ ٱلنَّارِ لَمْ تَأْتِ عَلَيْهِمْ. ٢٧ 27
The provincial governors, regional governors, other governors, and the king's counselors who had gathered together saw these men. The fire had not hurt their bodies; the hair on their heads was not singed; their robes were not harmed; and there was no smell of fire on them.
فَأَجَابَ نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ وَقَالَ: «تَبَارَكَ إِلَهُ شَدْرَخَ وَمِيشَخَ وَعَبْدَنَغُوَ، ٱلَّذِي أَرْسَلَ مَلَاكَهُ وَأَنْقَذَ عَبِيدَهُ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱتَّكَلُوا عَلَيْهِ وَغَيَّرُوا كَلِمَةَ ٱلْمَلِكِ وَأَسْلَمُوا أَجْسَادَهُمْ لِكَيْلَا يَعْبُدُوا أَوْ يَسْجُدُوا لِإِلَهٍ غَيْرِ إِلَهِهِمْ. ٢٨ 28
Nebuchadnezzar said, “Let us praise the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who has sent his messenger and given his message to his servants. They trusted in him when they set aside my command, and they gave up their bodies rather than worship or prostrate themselves to any god except their God.
فَمِنِّي قَدْ صَدَرَ أَمْرٌ بِأَنَّ كُلَّ شَعْبٍ وَأُمَّةٍ وَلِسَانٍ يَتَكَلَّمُونَ بِٱلسُّوءِ عَلَى إِلَهِ شَدْرَخَ وَمِيشَخَ وَعَبْدَنَغُوَ، فَإِنَّهُمْ يُصَيَّرُونَ إِرْبًا إِرْبًا، وَتُجْعَلُ بُيُوتُهُمْ مَزْبَلَةً، إِذْ لَيْسَ إِلَهٌ آخَرُ يَسْتَطِيعُ أَنْ يُنَجِّيَ هَكَذَا». ٢٩ 29
Therefore I make a decree that any people, nation, or language that speaks anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego must be torn apart, and that their houses must be made into rubbish heaps because there is no other god who is able to save like this.”
حِينَئِذٍ قَدَّمَ ٱلْمَلِكُ شَدْرَخَ وَمِيشَخَ وَعَبْدَنَغُوَ فِي وِلَايَةِ بَابِلَ. ٣٠ 30
Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the province of Babylon.
