دَانِيآل 5

بَيْلْشَاصَّرُ ٱلْمَلِكُ صَنَعَ وَلِيمَةً عَظِيمَةً لِعُظَمَائِهِ ٱلْأَلْفِ، وَشَرِبَ خَمْرًا قُدَّامَ ٱلْأَلْفِ. ١ 1
Belshazzar the king made a great feast for a thousand of his noblemen, and he drank wine in front of all one thousand of them.
وَإِذْ كَانَ بَيْلْشَاصَّرُ يَذُوقُ ٱلْخَمْرَ، أَمَرَ بِإِحْضَارِ آنِيَةِ ٱلذَّهَبِ وَٱلْفِضَّةِ ٱلَّتِي أَخْرَجَهَا نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ أَبُوهُ مِنَ ٱلْهَيْكَلِ ٱلَّذِي فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ، لِيَشْرَبَ بِهَا ٱلْمَلِكُ وَعُظَمَاؤُهُ وَزَوْجَاتُهُ وَسَرَارِيهِ. ٢ 2
While Belshazzar tasted the wine, he gave orders to bring the containers made of gold or silver that Nebuchadnezzar his father had taken out of the temple in Jerusalem, from which he, his noblemen, and his wives and concubines could drink.
حِينَئِذٍ أَحْضَرُوا آنِيَةَ ٱلذَّهَبِ ٱلَّتِي أُخْرِجَتْ مِنْ هَيْكَلِ بَيْتِ ٱللهِ ٱلَّذِي فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ، وَشَرِبَ بِهَا ٱلْمَلِكُ وَعُظَمَاؤُهُ وَزَوْجَاتُهُ وَسَرَارِيهِ. ٣ 3
The servants brought the gold containers that had been taken out of the temple, the house of God, in Jerusalem. The king, his noblemen, and his wives and concubines drank from them.
كَانُوا يَشْرَبُونَ ٱلْخَمْرَ وَيُسَبِّحُونَ آلِهَةَ ٱلذَّهَبِ وَٱلْفِضَّةِ وَٱلنُّحَاسِ وَٱلْحَدِيدِ وَٱلْخَشَبِ وَٱلْحَجَرِ. ٤ 4
They drank the wine and praised their idols made of gold and silver, bronze, iron, wood, and stone.
فِي تِلْكَ ٱلسَّاعَةِ ظَهَرَتْ أَصَابِعُ يَدِ إِنْسَانٍ، وَكَتَبَتْ بِإِزَاءِ ٱلنِّبْرَاسِ عَلَى مُكَلَّسِ حَائِطِ قَصْرِ ٱلْمَلِكِ، وَٱلْمَلِكُ يَنْظُرُ طَرَفَ ٱلْيَدِ ٱلْكَاتِبَةِ. ٥ 5
At that moment the fingers of a human hand appeared in front of the lampstand and wrote on the plaster wall in the king's palace. The king could see part of the hand as it wrote.
حِينَئِذٍ تَغَيَّرَتْ هَيْئَةُ ٱلْمَلِكِ وَأَفْزَعَتْهُ أَفْكَارُهُ، وَٱنْحَلَّتْ خَرَزُ حَقْوَيْهِ، وَٱصْطَكَّتْ رُكْبَتَاهُ. ٦ 6
Then the king's face changed and his thoughts frightened him; his limbs could not support him, and his knees were knocking together.
فَصَرَخَ ٱلْمَلِكُ بِشِدَّةٍ لِإِدْخَالِ ٱلسَّحَرَةِ وَٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ وَٱلْمُنَجِّمِينَ، فَأَجَابَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَقَالَ لِحُكَمَاءِ بَابِلَ: «أَيُّ رَجُلٍ يَقْرَأُ هَذِهِ ٱلْكِتَابَةَ وَيُبَيِّنُ لِي تَفْسِيرَهَا فَإِنَّهُ يُلَبَّسُ ٱلْأُرْجُوَانَ وَقِلَادَةً مِنْ ذَهَبٍ فِي عُنُقِهِ، وَيَتَسَلَّطُ ثَالِثًا فِي ٱلْمَمْلَكَةِ». ٧ 7
The king shouted a command to bring in those who claimed to speak with the dead, wise men, and astrologers. The king said to those known for their wisdom in Babylon, “Whoever explains this writing and its meaning will be clothed with purple and will have a gold chain around his neck. He will have the authority of the third highest ruler in the kingdom.”
ثُمَّ دَخَلَ كُلُّ حُكَمَاءِ ٱلْمَلِكِ، فَلَمْ يَسْتَطِيعُوا أَنْ يَقْرَأُوا ٱلْكِتَابَةَ، وَلَا أَنْ يُعَرِّفُوا ٱلْمَلِكَ بِتَفْسِيرِهَا. ٨ 8
Then all the king's men who were known for their wisdom came in, but they could not read the writing or explain its meaning to the king.
فَفَزَعَ ٱلْمَلِكُ بَيْلْشَاصَّرُ جِدًّا وَتَغَيَّرَتْ فِيهِ هَيْئَتُهُ، وَٱضْطَرَبَ عُظَمَاؤُهُ. ٩ 9
Then King Belshazzar was greatly alarmed and the look on his face changed. His noblemen were perplexed.
أَمَّا ٱلْمَلِكَةُ فَلِسَبَبِ كَلَامِ ٱلْمَلِكِ وَعُظَمَائِهِ دَخَلَتْ بَيْتَ ٱلْوَلِيمَةِ، فَأَجَابَتِ ٱلْمَلِكَةُ وَقَالَتْ: «أَيُّهَا ٱلْمَلِكُ، عِشْ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ! لَا تُفَزِّعْكَ أَفْكَارُكَ وَلَا تَتَغَيَّرُ هَيْئَتُكَ. ١٠ 10
Now the queen came into the banquet house because of what the king and his nobles had said. The queen said, “King, live forever! Do not let your thoughts trouble you. Do not let the look on your face change.
يُوجَدُ فِي مَمْلَكَتِكَ رَجُلٌ فِيهِ رُوحُ ٱلْآلِهَةِ ٱلْقُدُّوسِينَ، وَفِي أَيَّامِ أَبِيكَ وُجِدَتْ فِيهِ نَيِّرَةٌ وَفِطْنَةٌ وَحِكْمَةٌ كَحِكْمَةِ ٱلْآلِهَةِ، وَٱلْمَلِكُ نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرُ أَبُوكَ جَعَلَهُ كَبِيرَ ٱلْمَجُوسِ وَٱلسَّحَرَةِ وَٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ وَٱلْمُنَجِّمِينَ. أَبُوكَ ٱلْمَلِكُ. ١١ 11
There is a man in your kingdom who has the spirit of the holy gods. In the days of your father, light and understanding and wisdom like the wisdom of the gods was found in him. King Nebuchadnezzar, your father the king, made him chief of the magicians, as well as chief of those who speak with the dead, of the wise men, and of the astrologers.
مِنْ حَيْثُ إِنَّ رُوحًا فَاضِلَةً وَمَعْرِفَةً وَفِطْنَةً وَتَعْبِيرَ ٱلْأَحْلَامِ وَتَبْيِينَ أَلْغَازٍ وَحَلَّ عُقَدٍ وُجِدَتْ فِي دَانِيآلَ هَذَا، ٱلَّذِي سَمَّاهُ ٱلْمَلِكُ بَلْطَشَاصَّرَ. فَلْيُدْعَ ٱلْآنَ دَانِيآلُ فَيُبَيِّنَ ٱلتَّفْسِيرَ». ١٢ 12
An excellent spirit, knowledge, understanding, interpreting of dreams, explaining riddles and solving problems—these qualities were found in this man Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar. Now call for Daniel and he will tell you the meaning of what has been written.”
حِينَئِذٍ أُدْخِلَ دَانِيآلُ إِلَى قُدَّامِ ٱلْمَلِكِ. فَأَجَابَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَقَالَ لِدَانِيآلَ: «أَأَنْتَ هُوَ دَانِيآلُ مِنْ بَنِي سَبْيِ يَهُوذَا، ٱلَّذِي جَلَبَهُ أَبِي ٱلْمَلِكُ مِنْ يَهُوذَا؟ ١٣ 13
Then Daniel was brought before the king. The king said to him, “You are that Daniel, one of the people of the exiles of Judah, whom my father the king brought out of Judah.
قَدْ سَمِعْتُ عَنْكَ أَنَّ فِيكَ رُوحَ ٱلْآلِهَةِ، وَأَنَّ فِيكَ نَيِّرَةٌ وَفِطْنَةٌ وَحِكْمَةٌ فَاضِلَةٌ. ١٤ 14
I have heard about you, that the spirit of the gods is in you, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom are found in you.
وَٱلْآنَ أُدْخِلَ قُدَّامِي ٱلْحُكَمَاءُ وَٱلسَّحَرَةُ لِيَقْرَأُوا هَذِهِ ٱلْكِتَابَةَ وَيُعَرِّفُونِي بِتَفْسِيرِهَا، فَلَمْ يَسْتَطِيعُوا أَنْ يُبَيِّنُوا تَفْسِيرَ ٱلْكَلَامِ. ١٥ 15
Now the men known for wisdom and those who claim to speak with the dead have been brought in before me to read this writing and make known to me its interpretation, but they could not make known the interpretation of it.
وَأَنَا قَدْ سَمِعْتُ عَنْكَ أَنَّكَ تَسْتَطِيعُ أَنْ تُفَسِّرَ تَفْسِيرًا وَتَحُلَّ عُقَدًا. فَإِنِ ٱسْتَطَعْتَ ٱلْآنَ أَنْ تَقْرَأَ ٱلْكِتَابَةَ وَتُعَرِّفَنِي بِتَفْسِيرِهَا فَتُلَبَّسُ ٱلْأُرْجُوَانَ وَقِلَادَةً مِنْ ذَهَبٍ فِي عُنُقِكَ وَتَتَسَلَّطُ ثَالِثًا فِي ٱلْمَمْلَكَةِ». ١٦ 16
I have heard that you can give interpretations and solve problems. Now if you can read the writing and tell me its meaning, you will be clothed with purple and have a gold chain placed around your neck, and you will have the authority of the third highest ruler in the kingdom.”
فَأَجَابَ دَانِيآلُ وَقَالَ قُدَّامَ ٱلْمَلِكِ: «لِتَكُنْ عَطَايَاكَ لِنَفْسِكَ وَهَبْ هِبَاتِكَ لِغَيْرِي. لَكِنِّي أَقْرَأُ ٱلْكِتَابَةَ لِلْمَلِكِ وَأُعَرِّفُهُ بِٱلتَّفْسِيرِ. ١٧ 17
Then Daniel answered before the king, “Let your gifts be for yourself, and give your rewards to another person. Nevertheless, I will read the writing to you, king, and will tell you the meaning.
أَنْتَ أَيُّهَا ٱلْمَلِكُ، فَٱللهُ ٱلْعَلِيُّ أَعْطَى أَبَاكَ نَبُوخَذْنَصَّرَ مَلَكُوتًا وَعَظَمَةً وَجَلَالًا وَبَهَاءً. ١٨ 18
As for you, king, the Most High God gave Nebuchadnezzar your father the kingdom, greatness, honor, and majesty.
وَلِلْعَظَمَةِ ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَاهُ إِيَّاهَا كَانَتْ تَرْتَعِدُ وَتَفْزَعُ قُدَّامَهُ جَمِيعُ ٱلشُّعُوبِ وَٱلْأُمَمِ وَٱلْأَلْسِنَةِ. فَأَيًّا شَاءَ قَتَلَ، وَأَيًّا شَاءَ ٱسْتَحْيَا، وَأَيًّا شَاءَ رَفَعَ، وَأَيًّا شَاءَ وَضَعَ. ١٩ 19
Because of the greatness God gave him, all peoples, nations, and languages trembled and feared him. He put to death those he wanted to die, and he kept alive those he wished to live. He raised up those he wanted, and he humbled those he wished.
فَلَمَّا ٱرْتَفَعَ قَلْبُهُ وَقَسَتْ رُوحُهُ تَجَبُّرًا، ٱنْحَطَّ عَنْ كُرْسِيِّ مُلْكِهِ، وَنَزَعُوا عَنْهُ جَلَالَهُ، ٢٠ 20
But when his heart was arrogant and his spirit was hardened so that he acted presumptuously, he was brought down from his kingly throne, and they took away his majesty.
وَطُرِدَ مِنْ بَيْنِ ٱلنَّاسِ، وَتَسَاوَى قَلْبُهُ بِٱلْحَيَوَانِ، وَكَانَتْ سُكْنَاهُ مَعَ ٱلْحَمِيرِ ٱلْوَحْشِيَّةِ، فَأَطْعَمُوهُ ٱلْعُشْبَ كَٱلثِّيرَانِ، وَٱبْتَلَّ جِسْمُهُ بِنَدَى ٱلسَّمَاءِ، حَتَّى عَلِمَ أَنَّ ٱللهَ ٱلْعَلِيَّ سُلْطَانٌ فِي مَمْلَكَةِ ٱلنَّاسِ، وَأَنَّهُ يُقِيمُ عَلَيْهَا مَنْ يَشَاءُ. ٢١ 21
He was driven away from humanity, he had the mind of an animal, and he lived with the wild donkeys. He ate grass like an ox. His body was wet with the dew from the heavens until he learned that the Most High God rules over the kingdoms of people and that he sets over them anyone he wishes.
وَأَنْتَ يَا بَيْلْشَاصَّرُ ٱبْنَهُ لَمْ تَضَعْ قَلْبَكَ، مَعَ أَنَّكَ عَرَفْتَ كُلَّ هَذَا، ٢٢ 22
You his son, Belshazzar, have not humbled your heart, even though you knew all this.
بَلْ تَعَظَّمْتَ عَلَى رَبِّ ٱلسَّمَاءِ، فَأَحْضَرُوا قُدَّامَكَ آنِيَةَ بَيْتِهِ، وَأَنْتَ وَعُظَمَاؤُكَ وَزَوْجَاتُكَ وَسَرَارِيكَ شَرِبْتُمْ بِهَا ٱلْخَمْرَ، وَسَبَّحْتَ آلِهَةَ ٱلْفِضَّةِ وَٱلذَّهَبِ وَٱلنِّحَاسِ وَٱلْحَدِيدِ وَٱلْخَشَبِ وَٱلْحَجَرِ ٱلَّتِي لَا تُبْصِرُ وَلَا تَسْمَعُ وَلَا تَعْرِفُ. أَمَّا ٱللهُ ٱلَّذِي بِيَدِهِ نَسَمَتُكَ، وَلَهُ كُلُّ طُرُقِكَ فَلَمْ تُمَجِّدْهُ. ٢٣ 23
You have lifted yourself up against the Lord of heaven. From his house they brought you the containers that you, your nobles, your wives and your concubines drank wine from, and you praised the idols made of silver and gold, bronze, iron, wood, and stone—idols that do not see, hear, or know anything. You have not honored the God who holds your breath in his hand and who knows all your ways.
حِينَئِذٍ أُرْسِلَ مِنْ قِبَلِهِ طَرَفُ ٱلْيَدِ، فَكُتِبَتْ هَذِهِ ٱلْكِتَابَةُ. ٢٤ 24
Then God sent out a hand from his presence and this writing was done.
وَهَذِهِ هِيَ ٱلْكِتَابَةُ ٱلَّتِي سُطِّرَتْ: مَنَا مَنَا تَقَيْلُ وَفَرْسِينُ. ٢٥ 25
This is the writing that was done: 'Mene, Mene, Tekel, and Pharsin.'
وَهَذَا تَفْسِيرُ ٱلْكَلَامِ: مَنَا، أَحْصَى ٱللهُ مَلَكُوتَكَ وَأَنْهَاهُ. ٢٦ 26
This is its meaning: 'Mene,' 'God has numbered your kingdom and brought it to an end.'
تَقَيْلُ، وُزِنْتَ بِٱلْمَوَازِينِ فَوُجِدْتَ نَاقِصًا. ٢٧ 27
'Tekel,' 'you are weighed in the scales and are found lacking.'
فَرْسِ، قُسِمَتْ مَمْلَكَتُكَ وَأُعْطِيَتْ لِمَادِي وَفَارِسَ». ٢٨ 28
'Peres,' 'your kingdom is divided and is given to the Medes and Persians.'”
حِينَئِذٍ أَمَرَ بَيْلْشَاصَّرُ أَنْ يُلْبِسُوا دَانِيآلَ ٱلْأَرْجُوانَ وَقِلَادَةً مِنْ ذَهَبٍ فِي عُنُقِهِ، وَيُنَادُوا عَلَيْهِ أَنَّهُ يَكُونُ مُتَسَلِّطًا ثَالِثًا فِي ٱلْمَمْلَكَةِ. ٢٩ 29
Then Belshazzar gave a command, and they clothed Daniel with purple. A chain of gold was put around his neck, and the king made a proclamation about him that he would have the authority of the third highest ruler in the kingdom.
فِي تِلْكَ ٱللَّيْلَةِ قُتِلَ بَيْلْشَاصَّرُ مَلِكُ ٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ، ٣٠ 30
That night Belshazzar, the Babylonian king, was killed,
فَأَخَذَ ٱلْمَمْلَكَةَ دَارِيُّوسُ ٱلْمَادِيُّ وَهُوَ ٱبْنُ ٱثْنَتَيْنِ وَسِتِّينَ سَنَةً. ٣١ 31
and Darius the Mede received the kingdom when he was about sixty-two years old.
