اَلتَّثْنِيَة 13

«إِذَا قَامَ فِي وَسَطِكَ نَبِيٌّ أَوْ حَالِمٌ حُلْمًا، وَأَعْطَاكَ آيَةً أَوْ أُعْجُوبَةً، ١ 1
If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams, and if he gives you a sign or a wonder,
وَلَوْ حَدَثَتِ ٱلْآيَةُ أَوِ ٱلْأُعْجُوبَةُ ٱلَّتِي كَلَّمَكَ عَنْهَا قَائِلًا: لِنَذْهَبْ وَرَاءَ آلِهَةٍ أُخْرَى لَمْ تَعْرِفْهَا وَنَعْبُدْهَا، ٢ 2
and if the sign or the wonder comes about, of which he spoke to you and said, 'Let us go after other gods, that you have not known, and let us worship them,'
فَلَا تَسْمَعْ لِكَلَامِ ذَلِكَ ٱلنَّبِيِّ أَوِ ٱلْحَالِمِ ذَلِكَ ٱلْحُلْمَ، لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكُمْ يَمْتَحِنُكُمْ لِكَيْ يَعْلَمَ هَلْ تُحِبُّونَ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكُمْ مِنْ كُلِّ قُلُوبِكُمْ وَمِنْ كُلِّ أَنْفُسِكُمْ. ٣ 3
do not listen to the words of that prophet, or to that dreamer of dreams; for Yahweh your God is testing you to know whether you love Yahweh your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
وَرَاءَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمْ تَسِيرُونَ، وَإِيَّاهُ تَتَّقُونَ، وَوَصَايَاهُ تَحْفَظُونَ، وَصَوْتَهُ تَسْمَعُونَ، وَإِيَّاهُ تَعْبُدُونَ، وَبِهِ تَلْتَصِقُونَ. ٤ 4
You will walk after Yahweh your God, honor him, keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and you will worship him and cling to him.
وَذَلِكَ ٱلنَّبِيُّ أَوِ ٱلْحَالِمُ ذَلِكَ ٱلْحُلْمَ يُقْتَلُ، لِأَنَّهُ تَكَلَّمَ بِٱلزَّيْغِ مِنْ وَرَاءِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمُ ٱلَّذِي أَخْرَجَكُمْ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ، وَفَدَاكُمْ مِنْ بَيْتِ ٱلْعُبُودِيَّةِ، لِكَيْ يُطَوِّحَكُمْ عَنِ ٱلطَّرِيقِ ٱلَّتِي أَمَرَكُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكُمْ أَنْ تَسْلُكُوا فِيهَا. فَتَنْزِعُونَ ٱلشَّرَّ مِنْ بَيْنِكُمْ. ٥ 5
That prophet or that dreamer of dreams will be put to death, because he has spoken rebellion against Yahweh your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, and who redeemed you out of the house of bondage. That prophet wants to draw you out of the way in which Yahweh your God commanded you to walk. So put away the evil from among you.
«وَإِذَا أَغْوَاكَ سِرًّا أَخُوكَ ٱبْنُ أُمِّكَ، أَوِ ٱبْنُكَ أَوِ ٱبْنَتُكَ أَوِ ٱمْرَأَةُ حِضْنِكَ، أَوْ صَاحِبُكَ ٱلَّذِي مِثْلُ نَفْسِكَ قَائِلًا: نَذْهَبُ وَنَعْبُدُ آلِهَةً أُخْرَى لَمْ تَعْرِفْهَا أَنْتَ وَلَا آبَاؤُكَ ٦ 6
Suppose that your brother, the son of your mother, or your son, or your daughter, or the wife of your bosom, or your friend who is to you like your own soul, secretly entices you and says, 'Let us go and worship other gods that you have not known, neither you nor your ancestors—
مِنْ آلِهَةِ ٱلشُّعُوبِ ٱلَّذِينَ حَوْلَكَ، ٱلْقَرِيبِينَ مِنْكَ أَوِ ٱلْبَعِيدِينَ عَنْكَ، مِنْ أَقْصَاءِ ٱلْأَرْضِ إِلَى أَقْصَائِهَا، ٧ 7
any of the gods of the peoples that are round about you, near to you, or far off from you, from the one end of the earth to the other end of the earth.'
فَلَا تَرْضَ مِنْهُ وَلَا تَسْمَعْ لَهُ وَلَا تُشْفِقْ عَيْنُكَ عَلَيْهِ، وَلَا تَرِقَّ لَهُ وَلَا تَسْتُرْهُ، ٨ 8
You must not give in to him or listen to him, and you must not permit your eye to pity him, and you must not spare him or conceal him.
بَلْ قَتْلًا تَقْتُلُهُ. يَدُكَ تَكُونُ عَلَيْهِ أَوَّلًا لِقَتْلِهِ، ثُمَّ أَيْدِي جَمِيعِ ٱلشَّعْبِ أَخِيرًا. ٩ 9
Instead, you will surely kill him; your hand will be the first on him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.
تَرْجُمُهُ بِٱلْحِجَارَةِ حَتَّى يَمُوتَ، لِأَنَّهُ ٱلْتَمَسَ أَنْ يُطَوِّحَكَ عَنِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ ٱلَّذِي أَخْرَجَكَ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ مِنْ بَيْتِ ٱلْعُبُودِيَّةِ. ١٠ 10
You will stone him to death with stones, because he has tried to draw you away from Yahweh your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
فَيَسْمَعُ جَمِيعُ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَيَخَافُونَ، وَلَا يَعُودُونَ يَعْمَلُونَ مِثْلَ هَذَا ٱلْأَمْرِ ٱلشِّرِّيرِ فِي وَسَطِكَ. ١١ 11
All Israel will hear and fear, and will not continue to do this kind of wickedness among you.
«إِنْ سَمِعْتَ عَنْ إِحْدَى مُدُنِكَ ٱلَّتِي يُعْطِيكَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ لِتَسْكُنَ فِيهَا قَوْلًا: ١٢ 12
If you hear anyone say about one of your cities, that Yahweh your God gives you to live in:
قَدْ خَرَجَ أُنَاسٌ بَنُو لَئِيمٍ مِنْ وَسَطِكَ وَطَوَّحُوا سُكَّانَ مَدِينَتِهِمْ قَائِلِينَ: نَذْهَبُ وَنَعْبُدُ آلِهَةً أُخْرَى لَمْ تَعْرِفُوهَا. ١٣ 13
Some wicked fellows have gone out from among you and have drawn away the inhabitants of their city and said, 'Let us go and worship other gods that you have not known.'
وَفَحَصْتَ وَفَتَّشْتَ وَسَأَلْتَ جَيِّدًا وَإِذَا ٱلْأَمْرُ صَحِيحٌ وَأَكِيدٌ، قَدْ عُمِلَ ذَلِكَ ٱلرِّجْسُ فِي وَسَطِكَ، ١٤ 14
Then you will examine the evidence, make search, and investigate it thoroughly. When you discover that it is true and certain that such an abominable thing has been done among you, then you will take action.
فَضَرْبًا تَضْرِبُ سُكَّانَ تِلْكَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ بِحَدِّ ٱلسَّيْفِ، وَتُحَرِّمُهَا بِكُلِّ مَا فِيهَا مَعَ بَهَائِمِهَا بِحَدِّ ٱلسَّيْفِ. ١٥ 15
You will surely attack the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, completely destroy it and all the people who are in it, along with its livestock, with the edge of the sword.
تَجْمَعُ كُلَّ أَمْتِعَتِهَا إِلَى وَسَطِ سَاحَتِهَا، وَتُحْرِقُ بِٱلنَّارِ ٱلْمَدِينَةَ وَكُلَّ أَمْتِعَتِهَا كَامِلَةً لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ، فَتَكُونُ تَلًّا إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ لَا تُبْنَى بَعْدُ. ١٦ 16
You will gather all the spoil from it into the middle of its street and will burn the city, as well as all its spoil—for Yahweh your God. The city will be a heap of ruins forever; it must never be built again.
وَلَا يَلْتَصِقْ بِيَدِكَ شَيْءٌ مِنَ ٱلْمُحَرَّمِ، لِكَيْ يَرْجِعَ ٱلرَّبُّ مِنْ حُمُوِّ غَضَبِهِ، وَيُعْطِيَكَ رَحْمَةً. يَرْحَمُكَ وَيُكَثِّرُكَ كَمَا حَلَفَ لِآبَائِكَ، ١٧ 17
None of those things set apart for destruction must stick in your hand. This must be the case, so that Yahweh will turn from the fierceness of his anger, show you mercy, have compassion on you, and make you increase in numbers, as he has sworn to your fathers.
إِذَا سَمِعْتَ لِصَوْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ لِتَحْفَظَ جَمِيعَ وَصَايَاهُ ٱلَّتِي أَنَا أُوصِيكَ بِهَا ٱلْيَوْمَ، لِتَعْمَلَ ٱلْحَقَّ فِي عَيْنَيِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ. ١٨ 18
He will do this because you are listening to the voice of Yahweh your God, to keep all his commandments that I am commanding you today, to do that which is right in the eyes of Yahweh your God.
