دَانِيآل 7

فِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلْأُولَى لِبَيْلْشَاصَّرَ مَلِكِ بَابِلَ، رَأَى دَانِيآلُ حُلْمًا وَرُؤَى رَأْسِهِ عَلَى فِرَاشِهِ. حِينَئِذٍ كَتَبَ ٱلْحُلْمَ وَأَخْبَرَ بِرَأْسِ ٱلْكَلَامِ. ١ 1
In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylonia, Daniel had a dream and visions in his mind while lying on his bed. Then he wrote down what he had seen in the dream. He wrote down the most important events:
أَجَابَ دَانِيآلُ وَقَالَ: «كُنْتُ أَرَى فِي رُؤْيَايَ لَيْلًا وَإِذَا بِأَرْبَعِ رِيَاحِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ هَجَمَتْ عَلَى ٱلْبَحْرِ ٱلْكَبِيرِ. ٢ 2
Daniel explained, “In my vision at night I saw that the four winds of heaven were stirring up the great sea.
وَصَعِدَ مِنَ ٱلْبَحْرِ أَرْبَعَةُ حَيَوَانَاتٍ عَظِيمَةٍ، هَذَا مُخَالِفٌ ذَاكَ. ٣ 3
Four large animals, each one different from the other, came up out of the sea.
ٱلْأَوَّلُ كَٱلْأَسَدِ وَلَهُ جَنَاحَا نَسْرٍ. وَكُنْتُ أَنْظُرُ حَتَّى ٱنْتَتَفَ جَنَاحَاهُ وَٱنْتَصَبَ عَنِ ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَأُوقِفَ عَلَى رِجْلَيْنِ كَإِنْسَانٍ، وَأُعْطِيَ قَلْبَ إِنْسَانٍ. ٤ 4
The first was like a lion but had eagle's wings. As I was looking, its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground and made to stand on two feet, like a man. The mind of a man was given to it.
وَإِذَا بِحَيَوَانٍ آخَرَ ثَانٍ شَبِيهٍ بِٱلدُّبِّ، فَٱرْتَفَعَ عَلَى جَنْبٍ وَاحِدٍ وَفِي فَمِهِ ثَلَاثُ أَضْلُعٍ بَيْنَ أَسْنَانِهِ، فَقَالُوا لَهُ هَكَذَا: قُمْ كُلْ لَحْمًا كَثِيرًا. ٥ 5
Then there was a second animal, like a bear, and it was bending over; it had three ribs between its teeth in its mouth. It was told, 'Get up and devour many people.'
وَبَعْدَ هَذَا كُنْتُ أَرَى وَإِذَا بِآخَرَ مِثْلِ ٱلنَّمِرِ وَلَهُ عَلَى ظَهْرِهِ أَرْبَعَةُ أَجْنِحَةِ طَائِرٍ. وَكَانَ لِلْحَيَوَانِ أَرْبَعَةُ رُؤُوسٍ، وَأُعْطِيَ سُلْطَانًا. ٦ 6
After this I looked again. There was another animal, one that looked like a leopard. On its back it had four wings like bird wings, and it had four heads. It was given authority to rule.
بَعْدَ هَذَا كُنْتُ أَرَى فِي رُؤَى ٱللَّيْلِ وَإِذَا بِحَيَوَانٍ رَابعٍ هَائِلٍ وَقَوِيٍّ وَشَدِيدٍ جِدًّا، وَلَهُ أَسْنَانٌ مِنْ حَدِيدٍ كَبِيرَةٌ. أَكَلَ وَسَحَقَ وَدَاسَ ٱلْبَاقِيَ بِرِجْلَيْهِ. وَكَانَ مُخَالِفًا لِكُلِّ ٱلْحَيَوَانَاتِ ٱلَّذِينَ قَبْلَهُ، وَلَهُ عَشَرَةُ قُرُونٍ. ٧ 7
After this I saw in the visions of the night a fourth animal, terrifying, frightening, and very strong. It had large iron teeth; it devoured, broke in pieces, and trampled underfoot what was left. It was different from the other animals, and it had ten horns.
كُنْتُ مُتَأَمِّلًا بِٱلْقُرُونِ، وَإِذَا بِقَرْنٍ آخَرَ صَغِيرٍ طَلَعَ بَيْنَهَا، وَقُلِعَتْ ثَلَاثَةٌ مِنَ ٱلْقُرُونِ ٱلْأُولَى مِنْ قُدَّامِهِ، وَإِذَا بِعُيُونٍ كَعُيُونِ ٱلْإِنْسَانِ فِي هَذَا ٱلْقَرْنِ، وَفَمٍ مُتَكَلِّمٍ بِعَظَائِمَ. ٨ 8
While I was considering the horns, I looked and saw another horn grow up among them, a little horn. Three of the first horns were wrenched out by the roots. I saw in this horn eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth that was boasting about great things.
كُنْتُ أَرَى أَنَّهُ وُضِعَتْ عُرُوشٌ، وَجَلَسَ ٱلْقَدِيمُ ٱلْأَيَّامِ. لِبَاسُهُ أَبْيَضُ كَٱلثَّلْجِ، وَشَعْرُ رَأْسِهِ كَٱلصُّوفِ ٱلنَّقِيِّ، وَعَرْشُهُ لَهِيبُ نَارٍ، وَبَكَرَاتُهُ نَارٌ مُتَّقِدَةٌ. ٩ 9
As I looked, thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow, and the hair of his head was like pure wool. His throne was flames of fire, and its wheels were burning fire.
نَهْرُ نَارٍ جَرَى وَخَرَجَ مِنْ قُدَّامِهِ. أُلُوفُ أُلُوفٍ تَخْدِمُهُ، وَرَبَوَاتُ رَبَوَاتٍ وُقُوفٌ قُدَّامَهُ. فَجَلَسَ ٱلدِّينُ، وَفُتِحَتِ ٱلْأَسْفَارُ. ١٠ 10
A river of fire flowed out from before him; millions served him, and one hundred million were standing before him. The court was in session, and the books were opened.
كُنْتُ أَنْظُرُ حِينَئِذٍ مِنْ أَجْلِ صَوْتِ ٱلْكَلِمَاتِ ٱلْعَظِيمَةِ ٱلَّتِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهَا ٱلْقَرْنُ. كُنْتُ أَرَى إِلَى أَنْ قُتِلَ ٱلْحَيَوَانُ وَهَلَكَ جِسْمُهُ وَدُفِعَ لِوَقِيدِ ٱلنَّارِ. ١١ 11
I continued to look because of the boastful words spoken by the horn. I watched while the animal was killed, and its body was destroyed, and it was given over to be burned up.
أَمَّا بَاقِي ٱلْحَيَوَانَاتِ فَنُزِعَ عَنْهُمْ سُلْطَانُهُمْ، وَلَكِنْ أُعْطُوا طُولَ حَيَاةٍ إِلَى زَمَانٍ وَوَقْتٍ. ١٢ 12
As for the rest of the four animals, their authority to rule was taken away, but their lives were prolonged for a period of time.
«كُنْتُ أَرَى فِي رُؤَى ٱللَّيْلِ وَإِذَا مَعَ سُحُبِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ مِثْلُ ٱبْنِ إِنْسَانٍ أَتَى وَجَاءَ إِلَى ٱلْقَدِيمِ ٱلْأَيَّامِ، فَقَرَّبُوهُ قُدَّامَهُ. ١٣ 13
In my visions that night, I saw one coming with the clouds of heaven like a son of man; he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him.
فَأُعْطِيَ سُلْطَانًا وَمَجْدًا وَمَلَكُوتًا لِتَتَعَبَّدَ لَهُ كُلُّ ٱلشُّعُوبِ وَٱلْأُمَمِ وَٱلْأَلْسِنَةِ. سُلْطَانُهُ سُلْطَانٌ أَبَدِيٌّ مَا لَنْ يَزُولَ، وَمَلَكُوتُهُ مَا لَا يَنْقَرِضُ. ١٤ 14
Authority to rule and glory and royal power were given to him so that all the peoples, nations, and languages should serve him. His authority to rule is an everlasting authority that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.
«أَمَّا أَنَا دَانِيآلَ فَحَزِنَتْ رُوحِي فِي وَسَطِ جِسْمِي وَأَفْزَعَتْنِي رُؤَى رَأْسِي. ١٥ 15
As for me, Daniel, my spirit was grieved inside of me, and the visions I saw in my mind troubled me.
فَٱقْتَرَبْتُ إِلَى وَاحِدٍ مِنَ ٱلْوُقُوفِ وَطَلَبْتُ مِنْهُ ٱلْحَقِيقَةَ فِي كُلِّ هَذَا. فَأَخْبَرَنِي وَعَرَّفَنِي تَفْسِيرَ ٱلْأُمُورِ: ١٦ 16
I approached one of them standing there and asked him to show me the meaning of these things.
هَؤُلَاءِ ٱلْحَيَوَانَاتُ ٱلْعَظِيمَةُ ٱلَّتِي هِيَ أَرْبَعَةٌ هِيَ أَرْبَعَةُ مُلُوكٍ يَقُومُونَ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٧ 17
'These large animals, four in number, are four kings that will arise from the earth.
أَمَّا قِدِّيسُو ٱلْعَلِيِّ فَيَأْخُذُونَ ٱلْمَمْلَكَةَ وَيَمْتَلِكُونَ ٱلْمَمْلَكَةَ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ وَإِلَى أَبَدِ ٱلْآبِدِينَ. ١٨ 18
But the holy people of the Most High will receive the kingdom, and they will possess it forever and ever.'
حِينَئِذٍ رُمْتُ ٱلْحَقِيقَةَ مِنْ جِهَةِ ٱلْحَيَوَانِ ٱلرَّابِعِ ٱلَّذِي كَانَ مُخَالِفًا لِكُلِّهَا، وَهَائِلًا جِدًّا وَأَسْنَانُهُ مِنْ حَدِيدٍ وَأَظْفَارُهُ مِنْ نُحَاسٍ، وَقَدْ أَكَلَ وَسَحَقَ وَدَاسَ ٱلْبَاقِيَ بِرِجْلَيْهِ، ١٩ 19
Then I wanted to know more about the fourth animal—it was so different from the others and very horrifying with its iron teeth and bronze claws; it devoured, broke into pieces, and trampled on what was left with its feet.
وَعَنِ ٱلْقُرُونِ ٱلْعَشَرَةِ ٱلَّتِي بِرَأْسِهِ، وَعَنِ ٱلْآخَرِ ٱلَّذِي طَلَعَ فَسَقَطَتْ قُدَّامَهُ ثَلَاثَةٌ. وَهَذَا ٱلْقَرْنُ لَهُ عُيُونٌ وَفَمٌ مُتَكَلِّمٌ بِعَظَائِمَ وَمَنْظَرُهُ أَشَدُّ مِنْ رُفَقَائِهِ. ٢٠ 20
I wanted to know about the ten horns on its head, and about the other horn that grew up, and before which the three horns fell down. I wanted to know about the horn that had eyes and about the mouth that boasted about great things and that seemed greater than its companions.
وَكُنْتُ أَنْظُرُ وَإِذَا هَذَا ٱلْقَرْنُ يُحَارِبُ ٱلْقِدِّيسِينَ فَغَلَبَهُمْ، ٢١ 21
As I looked, this horn waged war against the holy people and was defeating them
حَتَّى جَاءَ ٱلْقَدِيمُ ٱلْأَيَّامِ، وَأُعْطِيَ ٱلدِّينُ لِقِدِّيسِيِ ٱلْعَلِيِّ، وَبَلَغَ ٱلْوَقْتُ، فَٱمْتَلَكَ ٱلْقِدِّيسُونَ ٱلْمَمْلَكَةَ. ٢٢ 22
until the Ancient of Days came, and justice was given to the holy people of the Most High. Then the time came when the holy people received the kingdom.
«فَقَالَ هَكَذَا: أَمَّا ٱلْحَيَوَانُ ٱلْرَّابِعُ فَتَكُونُ مَمْلَكَةٌ رَابِعَةٌ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ مُخَالِفَةٌ لِسَائِرِ ٱلْمَمَالِكِ، فَتَأْكُلُ ٱلْأَرْضَ كُلَّهَا وَتَدُوسُهَا وَتَسْحَقُهَا. ٢٣ 23
This is what that person said, 'As for the fourth animal, it will be a fourth kingdom on earth that will be different from all the other kingdoms. It will devour the whole earth, and it will trample it down and break it into pieces.
وَٱلْقُرُونُ ٱلْعَشَرَةُ مِنْ هَذِهِ ٱلْمَمْلَكَةِ هِيَ عَشَرَةُ مُلُوكٍ يَقُومُونَ، وَيَقُومُ بَعْدَهُمْ آخَرُ، وَهُوَ مُخَالِفٌ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ، وَيُذِلُّ ثَلَاثَةَ مُلُوكٍ. ٢٤ 24
As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise, and another will arise after them. He will be different from the previous ones, and he will conquer the three kings.
وَيَتَكَلَّمُ بِكَلَامٍ ضِدَّ ٱلْعَلِيِّ وَيُبْلِي قِدِّيسِي ٱلْعَلِيِّ، وَيَظُنُّ أَنَّهُ يُغَيِّرُ ٱلْأَوْقَاتَ وَٱلسُّنَّةَ، وَيُسَلَّمُونَ لِيَدِهِ إِلَى زَمَانٍ وَأَزْمِنَةٍ وَنِصْفِ زَمَانٍ. ٢٥ 25
He will speak words against the Most High and will oppress the holy people of the Most High God. He will try to change the festivals and the law. These things will be given into his hand for one year, two years, and half a year.
فَيَجْلِسُ ٱلدِّينُ وَيَنْزِعُونَ عَنْهُ سُلْطَانَهُ لِيَفْنَوْا وَيَبِيدُوا إِلَى ٱلْمُنْتَهَى. ٢٦ 26
But the court will be in session, and they will take his royal power away to be consumed and destroyed at the end.
وَٱلْمَمْلَكَةُ وَٱلسُّلْطَانُ وَعَظَمَةُ ٱلْمَمْلَكَةِ تَحْتَ كُلِّ ٱلسَّمَاءِ تُعْطَى لِشَعْبِ قِدِّيسِي ٱلْعَلِيِّ. مَلَكُوتُهُ مَلَكُوتٌ أَبَدِيٌّ، وَجَمِيعُ ٱلسَّلَاطِينِ إِيَّاهُ يَعْبُدُونَ وَيُطِيعُونَ. ٢٧ 27
The kingdom and the dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, will be given to the people who belong to the holy people of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all other kingdoms will serve and obey him.'
إِلَى هُنَا نِهَايَةُ ٱلْأَمْرِ. أَمَّا أَنَا دَانِيآلَ، فَأَفْكَارِي أَفْزَعَتْنِي كَثِيرًا، وَتَغَيَّرَتْ عَلَيَّ هَيْئَتِي، وَحَفِظْتُ ٱلْأَمْرَ فِي قَلْبِي». ٢٨ 28
Here is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts greatly alarmed me and my face changed in appearance. But I kept these things to myself.”
