اَلتَّثْنِيَة 11

«فَأَحْبِبِ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكَ وَٱحْفَظْ حُقُوقَهُ وَفَرَائِضَهُ وَأَحْكَامَهُ وَوَصَايَاهُ كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ. ١ 1
Therefore you will love Yahweh your God and always keep his instructions, his statutes, his decrees, and his commandments.
وَٱعْلَمُوا ٱلْيَوْمَ أَنِّي لَسْتُ أُرِيدُ بَنِيكُمُ ٱلَّذِينَ لَمْ يَعْرِفُوا وَلَا رَأَوْا تَأْدِيبَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمْ، عَظَمَتَهُ وَيَدَهُ ٱلشَّدِيدَةَ وَذِرَاعَهُ ٱلرَّفِيعَةَ ٢ 2
Notice that I am not speaking to your children, who have not known nor have they seen the punishment of Yahweh your God, his greatness, his mighty hand, or his outstretched arm,
وَآيَاتِهِ وَصَنَائِعَهُ ٱلَّتِي عَمِلَهَا فِي مِصْرَ بِفِرْعَوْنَ مَلِكِ مِصْرَ وَبِكُلِّ أَرْضِهِ، ٣ 3
the signs and deeds that he did in the midst of Egypt to Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and to all his land.
وَٱلَّتِي عَمِلَهَا بِجَيْشِ مِصْرَ بِخَيْلِهِمْ وَمَرَاكِبِهِمْ، حَيْثُ أَطَافَ مِيَاهَ بَحْرِ سُوفٍ عَلَى وُجُوهِهِمْ حِينَ سَعَوْا وَرَاءَكُمْ، فَأَبَادَهُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ، ٤ 4
Neither did they see what he did to the army of Egypt, to their horses, or to their chariots, how he made the water of the Sea of Reeds overwhelm them as they pursued after you, and how Yahweh has destroyed them until today,
وَٱلَّتِي عَمِلَهَا لَكُمْ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ حَتَّى جِئْتُمْ إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْمَكَانِ، ٥ 5
or what he did for you in the wilderness until you came to this place.
وَٱلَّتِي عَمِلَهَا بِدَاثَانَ وَأَبِيرَامَ ٱبْنَيْ أَلِيآبَ بْنِ رَأُوبَيْنَ ٱللَّذَيْنِ فَتَحَتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ فَاهَا وَٱبْتَلَعَتْهُمَا مَعَ بُيُوتِهِمَا وَخِيَامِهِمَا وَكُلِّ ٱلْمَوْجُودَاتِ ٱلتَّابِعَةِ لَهُمَا فِي وَسْطِ كُلِّ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٦ 6
They had not seen what Yahweh had done to Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab son of Reuben, how the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, their households, their tents, and every living thing that followed them, in the middle of all Israel.
لِأَنَّ أَعْيُنَكُمْ هِيَ ٱلَّتِي أَبْصَرَتْ كُلَّ صَنَائِعِ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلْعَظِيمَةِ ٱلَّتِي عَمِلَهَا. ٧ 7
But your eyes have seen all the great works of Yahweh that he did.
«فَٱحْفَظُوا كُلَّ ٱلْوَصَايَا ٱلَّتِي أَنَا أُوصِيكُمْ بِهَا ٱلْيَوْمَ لِكَيْ تَتَشَدَّدُوا وَتَدْخُلُوا وَتَمْتَلِكُوا ٱلْأَرْضَ ٱلَّتِي أَنْتُمْ عَابِرُونَ إِلَيْهَا لِتَمْتَلِكُوهَا، ٨ 8
Therefore keep all the commandments that I am commanding you today, that you may be strong, and go in and possess the land where you are going over to possess it,
وَلِكَيْ تُطِيلُوا ٱلْأَيَّامَ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي أَقْسَمَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِآبَائِكُمْ أَنْ يُعْطِيَهَا لَهُمْ وَلِنَسْلِهِمْ، أَرْضٌ تَفِيضُ لَبَنًا وَعَسَلًا. ٩ 9
and that you may prolong your days in the land that Yahweh swore to your fathers to give to them and to their descendants, a land flowing with milk and honey.
لِأَنَّ ٱلْأَرْضَ ٱلَّتِي أَنْتَ دَاخِلٌ إِلَيْهَا لِكَيْ تَمْتَلِكَهَا لَيْسَتْ مِثْلَ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ ٱلَّتِي خَرَجْتَ مِنْهَا، حَيْثُ كُنْتَ تَزْرَعُ زَرْعَكَ وَتَسْقِيهِ بِرِجْلِكَ كَبُسْتَانِ بُقُولٍ. ١٠ 10
For the land, where you go in to possess it, is not like the land of Egypt, from where you came, where you sowed your seed and watered it with your foot, like a garden of herbs;
بَلْ ٱلْأَرْضُ ٱلَّتِي أَنْتُمْ عَابِرُونَ إِلَيْهَا لِكَيْ تَمْتَلِكُوهَا، هِيَ أَرْضُ جِبَالٍ وَبِقَاعٍ. مِنْ مَطَرِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ تَشْرَبُ مَاءً. ١١ 11
but the land, where you go over to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinks water of the rain of the heavens,
أَرْضٌ يَعْتَنِي بِهَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ. عَيْنَا ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ عَلَيْهَا دَائِمًا مِنْ أَوَّلِ ٱلسَّنَةِ إِلَى آخِرِهَا. ١٢ 12
a land that Yahweh your God cares for; the eyes of Yahweh your God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year.
«فَإِذَا سَمِعْتُمْ لِوَصَايَايَ ٱلَّتِي أَنَا أُوصِيكُمْ بِهَا ٱلْيَوْمَ لِتُحِبُّوا ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكُمْ وَتَعْبُدُوهُ مِنْ كُلِّ قُلُوبِكُمْ وَمِنْ كُلِّ أَنْفُسِكُمْ، ١٣ 13
It will happen, if you will listen diligently to my commandments that I command you today, to love Yahweh your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,
أُعْطِي مَطَرَ أَرْضِكُمْ فِي حِينِهِ: ٱلْمُبَكِّرَ وَٱلْمُتَأَخِّرَ. فَتَجْمَعُ حِنْطَتَكَ وَخَمْرَكَ وَزَيْتَكَ. ١٤ 14
that I will give the rain of your land in its season, the former rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, your new wine, and your oil.
وَأُعْطِي لِبَهَائِمِكَ عُشْبًا فِي حَقْلِكَ فَتَأْكُلُ أَنْتَ وَتَشْبَعُ. ١٥ 15
I will give grass in your fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be full.
فَٱحْتَرِزُوا مِنْ أَنْ تَنْغَوِيَ قُلُوبُكُمْ فَتَزِيغُوا وَتَعْبُدُوا آلِهَةً أُخْرَى وَتَسْجُدُوا لَهَا، ١٦ 16
Pay attention to yourselves so that your heart is not deceived, and you turn aside and worship other gods and bow down to them;
فَيَحْمَى غَضَبُ ٱلرَّبِّ عَلَيْكُمْ، وَيُغْلِقُ ٱلسَّمَاءَ فَلَا يَكُونُ مَطَرٌ، وَلَا تُعْطِي ٱلْأَرْضُ غَلَّتَهَا، فَتَبِيدُونَ سَرِيعًا عَنِ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلْجَيِّدَةِ ٱلَّتِي يُعْطِيكُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ١٧ 17
so that the anger of Yahweh is not kindled against you; and so that he does not shut up the heavens so that there will be no rain, and the land will not yield its fruit, and so that you perish quickly from off the good land that Yahweh is giving you.
«فَضَعُوا كَلِمَاتِي هَذِهِ عَلَى قُلُوبِكُمْ وَنُفُوسِكُمْ، وَٱرْبُطُوهَا عَلَامَةً عَلَى أَيْدِيكُمْ، وَلْتَكُنْ عَصَائِبَ بَيْنَ عُيُونِكُمْ، ١٨ 18
Therefore lay up these words of mine in your heart and soul, bind them as a sign on your hand, and let them be as frontlets between your eyes.
وَعَلِّمُوهَا أَوْلَادَكُمْ، مُتَكَلِّمِينَ بِهَا حِينَ تَجْلِسُونَ فِي بُيُوتِكُمْ، وَحِينَ تَمْشُونَ فِي ٱلطَّرِيقِ، وَحِينَ تَنَامُونَ، وَحِينَ تَقُومُونَ. ١٩ 19
You will teach them to your children and talk about them when you sit in your house, when you walk on the road, when you lie down, and when you get up.
وَٱكْتُبْهَا عَلَى قَوَائِمِ أَبْوَابِ بَيْتِكَ وَعَلَى أَبْوَابِكَ، ٢٠ 20
You will write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates,
لِكَيْ تَكْثُرَ أَيَّامُكَ وَأَيَّامُ أَوْلَادِكَ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي أَقْسَمَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِآبَائِكَ أَنْ يُعْطِيَهُمْ إِيَّاهَا، كَأَيَّامِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٢١ 21
that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land that Yahweh swore to your ancestors to give them for as long as the heavens are above the earth.
لِأَنَّهُ إِذَا حَفِظْتُمْ جَمِيعَ هَذِهِ ٱلْوَصَايَا ٱلَّتِي أَنَا أُوصِيكُمْ بِهَا لِتَعْمَلُوهَا، لِتُحِبُّوا ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكُمْ وَتَسْلُكُوا فِي جَمِيعِ طُرُقِهِ وَتَلْتَصِقُوا بِهِ، ٢٢ 22
For if you diligently keep all these commandments that I am commanding you, so as to do them, to love Yahweh your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cling to him,
يَطْرُدُ ٱلرَّبُّ جَمِيعَ هَؤُلَاءِ ٱلشُّعُوبِ مِنْ أَمَامِكُمْ، فَتَرِثُونَ شُعُوبًا أَكْبَرَ وَأَعْظَمَ مِنْكُمْ. ٢٣ 23
then Yahweh will drive out all these nations from before you, and you will dispossess nations larger and mightier than yourselves.
كُلُّ مَكَانٍ تَدُوسُهُ بُطُونُ أَقْدَامِكُمْ يَكُونُ لَكُمْ. مِنَ ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ وَلُبْنَانَ. مِنَ ٱلنَّهْرِ، نَهْرِ ٱلْفُرَاتِ، إِلَى ٱلْبَحْرِ ٱلْغَرْبِيِّ يَكُونُ تُخْمُكُمْ. ٢٤ 24
Every place where the sole of your foot will tread will be yours; from the wilderness to Lebanon, from the river, the Euphrates River, to the western sea will be your border.
لَا يَقِفُ إِنْسَانٌ فِي وَجْهِكُمْ. اَلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكُمْ يَجْعَلُ خَشْيَتَكُمْ وَرُعْبَكُمْ عَلَى كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي تَدُوسُونَهَا كَمَا كَلَّمَكُمْ. ٢٥ 25
No man will be able to stand before you. Yahweh your God will lay the fear of you and the terror of you upon all the land that you tread on, as he has said to you.
«اُنْظُرْ. أَنَا وَاضِعٌ أَمَامَكُمُ ٱلْيَوْمَ بَرَكَةً وَلَعْنَةً: ٢٦ 26
Look, I set before you today a blessing and a curse:
ٱلْبَرَكَةُ إِذَا سَمِعْتُمْ لِوَصَايَا ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمُ ٱلَّتِي أَنَا أُوصِيكُمْ بِهَا ٱلْيَوْمَ. ٢٧ 27
the blessing, if you obey the commandments of Yahweh your God that I command you today,
وَٱللَّعْنَةُ إِذَا لَمْ تَسْمَعُوا لِوَصَايَا ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمْ، وَزُغْتُمْ عَنِ ٱلطَّرِيقِ ٱلَّتِي أَنَا أُوصِيكُمْ بِهَا ٱلْيَوْمَ لِتَذْهَبُوا وَرَاءَ آلِهَةٍ أُخْرَى لَمْ تَعْرِفُوهَا. ٢٨ 28
and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of Yahweh your God, but turn aside from the way that I command you today, to go after other gods that you have not known.
وَإِذَا جَاءَ بِكَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي أَنْتَ دَاخِلٌ إِلَيْهَا لِكِيْ تَمْتَلِكَهَا، فَٱجْعَلِ ٱلْبَرَكَةَ عَلَى جَبَلِ جِرِزِّيمَ، وَٱللَّعْنَةَ عَلَى جَبَلِ عِيبَالَ. ٢٩ 29
It will happen, when Yahweh your God brings you into the land which you go to possess, that you will set the blessing on Mount Gerizim, and the curse on Mount Ebal.
أَمَا هُمَا فِي عَبْرِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ، وَرَاءَ طَرِيقِ غُرُوبِ ٱلشَّمْسِ فِي أَرْضِ ٱلْكَنْعَانِيِّينَ ٱلسَّاكِنِينَ فِي ٱلْعَرَبَةِ، مُقَابِلَ ٱلْجِلْجَالِ، بِجَانِبِ بَلُّوطَاتِ مُورَةَ؟ ٣٠ 30
Are they not beyond the Jordan, west of the western road, in the land of the Canaanites who live in the Arabah, over against Gilgal, beside the oaks of Moreh?
لِأَنَّكُمْ عَابِرُونَ ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ لِتَدْخُلُوا وَتَمْتَلِكُوا ٱلْأَرْضَ ٱلَّتِي ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكُمْ يُعْطِيكُمْ. تَمْتَلِكُونَهَا وَتَسْكُنُونَهَا. ٣١ 31
For you are to cross over the Jordan to go in to possess the land that Yahweh your God is giving you, and you will possess it and live in it.
فَٱحْفَظُوا جَمِيعَ ٱلْفَرَائِضِ وَٱلْأَحْكَامِ ٱلَّتِي أَنَا وَاضِعٌ أَمَامَكُمُ ٱلْيَوْمَ لِتَعْمَلُوهَا. ٣٢ 32
You will keep all the statutes and the decrees that I set before you today.
