دَانِيآل 8

فِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلثَّالِثَةِ مِنْ مُلْكِ بَيْلْشَاصَّرَ ٱلْمَلِكِ، ظَهَرَتْ لِي أَنَا دَانِيآلَ رُؤْيَا بَعْدَ ٱلَّتِي ظَهَرَتْ لِي فِي ٱلِٱبْتِدَاءِ. ١ 1
In the third year of the reign of King Belshazzar, I, Daniel, had a vision appear to me (after the one that appeared to me at first).
فَرَأَيْتُ فِي ٱلرُّؤْيَا، وَكَانَ فِي رُؤْيَايَ وَأَنا فِي شُوشَانَ ٱلْقَصْرِ ٱلَّذِي فِي وِلَايَةِ عِيلَامَ، وَرَأَيْتُ فِي الرُؤيَا وَأَنَا عِنْدَ نَهْرِ أُولَايَ. ٢ 2
I saw in the vision, as I was looking, that I was in the fortress of Susa in the province of Elam. I saw in the vision that I was beside the Ulai Canal.
فَرَفَعْتُ عَيْنَيَّ وَرَأَيْتُ وَإِذَا بِكَبْشٍ وَاقِفٍ عِنْدَ ٱلنَّهْرِ وَلَهُ قَرْنَانِ وَٱلقَرْنَانِ عَالِيَانِ، وَٱلْوَاحِدُ أَعْلَى مِنَ ٱلْآخَرِ، وَٱلْأَعْلَى طَالِعٌ أَخِيرًا. ٣ 3
I looked up and saw before me a ram with two horns, standing beside the canal. One horn was longer than the other, but the longer one grew more slowly than the shorter and was passed up in length by it.
رَأَيْتُ ٱلْكَبْشَ يَنْطَحُ غَرْبًا وَشِمَالًا وَجَنُوبًا فَلَمْ يَقِفْ حَيَوَانٌ قُدَّامَهُ وَلَا مُنْقِذٌ مِنْ يَدِهِ، وَفَعَلَ كَمَرْضَاتِهِ وَعَظُمَ. ٤ 4
I saw the ram charging west, then north, and then south; no other animal could stand before him. None of them was able to rescue anyone out of his hand. He did whatever he wanted, and he became great.
وَبَيْنَمَا كُنْتُ مُتَأَمِّلًا إِذَا بِتَيْسٍ مِنَ ٱلْمَعْزِ جَاءَ مِنَ ٱلْمَغْرِبِ عَلَى وَجْهِ كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ وَلَمْ يَمَسَّ ٱلْأَرْضَ، وَلِلتَّيْسِ قَرْنٌ مُعْتَبَرٌ بَيْنَ عَيْنَيْهِ. ٥ 5
As I was thinking about this, I saw a male goat come from the west, who went across the surface of the whole earth, running fast, not seeming to touch the ground. The goat had a large horn between his eyes.
وَجَاءَ إِلَى ٱلْكَبْشِ صَاحِبِ ٱلْقَرْنَيْنِ ٱلَّذِي رَأَيْتُهُ وَاقِفًا عِنْدَ ٱلنَّهْرِ وَرَكَضَ إِلَيْهِ بِشِدَّةِ قُوَّتِهِ. ٦ 6
He came to the ram who had two horns—I had seen the ram standing on the bank of the canal—and the goat ran toward the ram in a powerful rage.
وَرَأَيْتُهُ قَدْ وَصَلَ إِلَى جَانِبِ ٱلْكَبْشِ، فَٱسْتَشَاطَ عَلَيْهِ وَضَرَبَ ٱلْكَبْشَ وَكَسَرَ قَرْنَيْهِ، فَلَمْ تَكُنْ لِلْكَبْشِ قُوَّةٌ عَلَى ٱلْوُقُوفِ أَمَامَهُ، وَطَرَحَهُ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَدَاسَهُ، وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لِلْكَبْشِ مُنْقِذٌ مِنْ يَدِهِ. ٧ 7
I saw the goat come close to the ram. He was very angry at the ram, and he hit the ram and broke off its two horns. The ram was powerless to stand before him. The goat knocked him down to the ground and trampled on him. There was no one who could rescue the ram from his power.
فتَعَظَّمَ تَيْسُ ٱلمَعْزِ جِدًّا. وَلَمَّا ٱعْتَزَّ ٱنْكَسَرَ ٱلْقَرْنُ ٱلْعَظِيمُ، وَطَلَعَ عِوَضًا عَنْهُ أَرْبَعَةُ قُرُونٍ مُعْتَبَرَةٍ نَحْوَ رِيَاحِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ ٱلْأَرْبَعِ. ٨ 8
Then the goat became very large. But when he became strong, the large horn was broken, and in its place four other large horns grew up that pointed toward the four winds of the heavens.
وَمِنْ وَاحِدٍ مِنْهَا خَرَجَ قَرْنٌ صَغِيرٌ، وَعَظُمَ جِدًّا نَحْوَ ٱلْجَنُوبِ وَنَحْوَ ٱلشَّرْقِ وَنَحْوَ فَخْرِ ٱلْأَرَاضِي. ٩ 9
Out of one of them grew another horn, little at first, but which became very large in the south, in the east, and in the land of beauty.
وَتَعَظَّمَ حَتَّى إِلَى جُنْدِ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ، وَطَرَحَ بَعْضًا مِنَ ٱلْجُنْدِ وَٱلنُّجُومِ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَدَاسَهُمْ. ١٠ 10
It became so large as to engage in war with the army of heaven. Some of that army and some of the stars were thrown down to the earth, and it trampled on them.
وَحَتَّى إِلَى رَئِيسِ ٱلْجُنْدِ تَعَظَّمَ، وَبِهِ أُبْطِلَتِ ٱلْمُحْرَقَةُ ٱلدَّائِمَةُ، وَهُدِمَ مَسْكَنُ مَقْدِسِهِ. ١١ 11
It made itself to be as great as the commander of the army. It took away from him the regular burnt offering, and the place of his sanctuary was polluted.
وَجُعِلَ جُنْدٌ عَلَى ٱلْمُحْرَقَةِ ٱلدَّائِمَةِ بِٱلْمَعْصِيَةِ، فَطَرَحَ ٱلْحَقَّ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَفَعَلَ وَنَجَحَ. ١٢ 12
Because of rebellion, the army will be given over to the goat's horn, and the burnt offering will be stopped. The horn will throw truth down to the ground, and it will succeed in what it does.
فَسَمِعْتُ قُدُّوسًا وَاحِدًا يَتَكَلَّمُ. فَقَالَ قُدُّوسٌ وَاحِدٌ لِفُلَانٍ ٱلْمُتَكَلِّمِ: «إِلَى مَتَى ٱلرُّؤْيَا مِنْ جِهَةِ ٱلْمُحْرَقَةِ ٱلدَّائِمَةِ وَمَعْصِيَةِ ٱلْخَرَابِ، لِبَذْلِ ٱلْقُدْسِ وَٱلْجُنْدِ مَدُوسَيْنِ؟» ١٣ 13
Then I heard a holy one speaking and another holy one answering him, “How long will these things last, this vision about the burnt offering, the sin that brings destruction, the handing over of the sanctuary, and heaven's army being trampled on?”
فَقَالَ لِي: «إِلَى أَلْفَيْنِ وَثَلَاثِ مِئَةِ صَبَاحٍ وَمَسَاءٍ، فَيَتَبَرَّأُ ٱلْقُدْسُ». ١٤ 14
He said to me, “It will last for 2,300 evenings and mornings. After that the sanctuary will be put right.”
وَكَانَ لَمَّا رَأَيْتُ أَنَا دَانِيآلَ ٱلرُّؤْيَا وَطَلَبْتُ ٱلْمَعْنَى، إِذَا بِشِبْهِ إِنْسَانٍ وَاقِفٍ قُبَالَتِي. ١٥ 15
When I, Daniel, had seen the vision, I tried to understand it. Then there stood before me one who looked like a man.
وَسَمِعْتُ صَوْتَ إِنْسَانٍ بَيْنَ أُولَايَ، فَنَادَى وَقَالَ: «يَا جِبْرَائِيلُ، فَهِّمْ هَذَا ٱلرَّجُلَ ٱلرُّؤْيَا». ١٦ 16
I heard a man's voice calling between the banks of the Ulai Canal. He said, “Gabriel, help this man understand the vision.”
فَجَاءَ إِلَى حَيْثُ وَقَفْتُ، وَلَمَّا جَاءَ خِفْتُ وَخَرَرْتُ عَلَى وَجْهِي. فَقَالَ لِي: «ٱفْهَمْ يَا ٱبْنَ آدَمَ. إِنَّ ٱلرُّؤْيَا لِوَقْتِ ٱلْمُنْتَهَى». ١٧ 17
So he came near where I stood. When he came, I was frightened and prostrated myself on the ground. He said to me, “Understand, son of man, that the vision is for the time of the end.”
وَإِذْ كَانَ يَتَكَلَّمُ مَعِي كُنْتُ مُسَبَّخًا عَلَى وَجْهِي إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ، فَلَمَسَنِي وَأَوْقَفَنِي عَلَى مَقَامِي. ١٨ 18
When he spoke to me, I fell into a deep sleep with my face to the ground. Then he touched me and made me stand up.
وَقَالَ: «هَأَنَذَا أُعَرِّفُكَ مَا يَكُونُ فِي آخِرِ ٱلسُّخَطِ. لِأَنَّ لِمِيعَادِ ٱلِٱنْتِهَاءَ. ١٩ 19
He said, “See, I will show you what will happen later in the time of wrath, because the vision concerns the appointed time for the end.
أَمَّا ٱلْكَبْشُ ٱلَّذِي رَأَيْتَهُ ذَا ٱلْقَرْنَيْنِ فَهُوَ مُلُوكُ مَادِي وَفَارِسَ. ٢٠ 20
As for the ram you saw, the one that had two horns—they are the kings of Media and Persia.
وَٱلتَّيْسُ ٱلْعَافِي مَلِكُ ٱلْيُونَانِ، وَٱلْقَرْنُ ٱلْعَظِيمُ ٱلَّذِي بَيْنَ عَيْنَيْهِ هُوَ ٱلْمَلِكُ ٱلْأَوَّلُ. ٢١ 21
The male goat is the king of Greece. The large horn between his eyes is the first king.
وَإِذِ ٱنْكَسَرَ وَقَامَ أَرْبَعَةٌ عِوَضًا عَنْهُ، فَسَتَقُومُ أَرْبَعُ مَمَالِكَ مِنَ ٱلْأُمَّةِ، وَلَكِنْ لَيْسَ فِي قُوَّتِهِ. ٢٢ 22
As for the horn that was broken, in the place of which four others arose—four kingdoms will arise from his nation, but not with his great power.
وَفِي آخِرِ مَمْلَكَتِهِمْ عِنْدَ تَمَامِ ٱلْمَعَاصِي يَقُومُ مَلِكٌ جَافِي ٱلْوَجْهِ وَفَاهِمُ ٱلْحِيَلِ. ٢٣ 23
At the latter time of those kingdoms, when the transgressors shall have reached their limit, a grim-faced king, one who is very intelligent, will arise.
وَتَعْظُمُ قُوَّتُهُ، وَلَكِنْ لَيْسَ بِقُوَّتِهِ. يُهْلِكُ عَجَبًا وَيَنْجَحُ وَيَفْعَلُ وَيُبِيدُ ٱلْعُظَمَاءَ وَشَعْبَ ٱلْقِدِّيسِينَ. ٢٤ 24
His power will be great—but not by his own power. He will be amazing in what he destroys; he will act and succeed. He will destroy powerful people, people among the holy ones.
وَبِحَذَاقَتِهِ يَنْجَحُ أَيْضًا ٱلْمَكْرُ فِي يَدِهِ، وَيَتَعَظَّمُ بِقَلْبِهِ. وَفِي ٱلِٱطْمِئْنَانِ يُهْلِكُ كَثِيرِينَ، وَيَقُومُ عَلَى رَئِيسِ ٱلرُّؤَسَاءِ، وَبِلَا يَدٍ يَنْكَسِرُ. ٢٥ 25
By his craftiness he will make deceit prosper under his hand. He will become great in his own mind. He will unexpectedly destroy many people. He will even rise up against the King of kings, and he will be broken, but not by any human hand.
فَرُؤْيَا ٱلْمَسَاءِ وَٱلصَّبَاحِ ٱلَّتِي قِيلَتْ هِيَ حَقٌّ. أَمَّا أَنْتَ فَٱكْتُمِ ٱلرُّؤْيَا لِأَنَّهَا إِلَى أَيَّامٍ كَثِيرَةٍ». ٢٦ 26
The vision about the evenings and mornings that has been told is true. But seal up the vision, for it refers to many days in the future.”
وَأَنَا دَانِيآلَ ضَعُفْتُ وَنَحَلْتُ أَيَّامًا، ثُمَّ قُمْتُ وَبَاشَرْتُ أَعْمَالَ ٱلْمَلِكِ، وَكُنْتُ مُتَحَيِّرًا مِنَ ٱلرُّؤْيَا وَلَا فَاهِمَ. ٢٧ 27
Then I, Daniel, was overcome and lay weak for several days. Then I got up, and went about the king's business. But I was appalled by the vision, and there was no one who understood it.
