اَلتَّثْنِيَة 14

«أَنْتُمْ أَوْلَادٌ لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمْ. لَا تَخْمِشُوا أَجْسَامَكُمْ، وَلَا تَجْعَلُوا قَرْعَةً بَيْنَ أَعْيُنِكُمْ لِأَجْلِ مَيْتٍ. ١ 1
You are the people of Yahweh your God. Do not cut yourselves, nor shave any part of your face for the dead.
لِأَنَّكَ شَعْبٌ مُقَدَّسٌ لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ، وَقَدِ ٱخْتَارَكَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِكَيْ تَكُونَ لَهُ شَعْبًا خَاصًّا فَوْقَ جَمِيعِ ٱلشُّعُوبِ ٱلَّذِينَ عَلَى وَجْهِ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٢ 2
For you are a nation that is set apart to Yahweh your God, and Yahweh has chosen you to be a people for his own possession, more than all peoples that are on the surface of the earth.
«لَا تَأْكُلْ رِجْسًا مَّا. ٣ 3
You must not eat any abominable thing.
هَذِهِ هِيَ ٱلْبَهَائِمُ ٱلَّتِي تَأْكُلُونَهَا: ٱلْبَقَرُ وَٱلضَّأْنُ وَٱلْمَعْزُ ٤ 4
These are the animals that you may eat: the ox, the sheep, and the goat,
وَٱلْإِيَّلُ وَٱلظَّبْيُ وَٱلْيَحْمُورُ وَٱلْوَعْلُ وَٱلرِّئْمُ وَٱلثَّيْتَلُ وَٱلْمَهَاةُ. ٥ 5
the deer, the gazelle, the roebuck, the wild goat, and ibex, and the antelope, and the mountain sheep.
وَكُلُّ بَهِيمَةٍ مِنَ ٱلْبَهَائِمِ تَشُقُّ ظِلْفًا وَتَقْسِمُهُ ظِلْفَيْنِ وَتَجْتَرُّ فَإِيَّاهَا تَأْكُلُونَ. ٦ 6
You may eat any animals that parts the hoof, that is, that has the hoof divided in two, and that chews the cud.
إِلَّا هَذِهِ فَلَا تَأْكُلُوهَا، مِمَّا يَجْتَرُّ وَمِمَّا يَشُقُّ ٱلظِّلْفَ ٱلْمُنْقَسِمَ: ٱلْجَمَلُ وَٱلْأَرْنَبُ وَٱلْوَبْرُ، لِأَنَّهَا تَجْتَرُّ لَكِنَّهَا لَا تَشُقُّ ظِلْفًا، فَهِيَ نَجِسَةٌ لَكُمْ. ٧ 7
Nevertheless, you must not eat some animals that chew the cud or that have the hoof divided in two: the camel, the rabbit, and the rock badger; because they chew the cud but do not part the hoof, they are unclean to you.
وَٱلْخِنْزِيرُ لِأَنَّهُ يَشُقُّ ٱلظِّلْفَ لَكِنَّهُ لَا يَجْتَرُّ فَهُوَ نَجِسٌ لَكُمْ. فَمِنْ لَحْمِهَا لَا تَأْكُلُوا وَجُثَثَهَا لَا تَلْمِسُوا. ٨ 8
The pig is unclean to you as well because he parts the hoof but does not chew the cud; he is unclean to you. Do not eat pig meat, and do not touch their carcasses.
«وَهَذَا تَأْكُلُونَهُ مِنْ كُلِّ مَا فِي ٱلْمِيَاهِ: كُلُّ مَا لَهُ زَعَانِفُ وَحَرْشَفٌ تَأْكُلُونَهُ. ٩ 9
Of these things that are in water you may eat: whatever has fins and scales;
لَكِنْ كُلُّ مَا لَيْسَ لَهُ زَعَانِفُ وَحَرْشَفٌ لَا تَأْكُلُوهُ. إِنَّهُ نَجِسٌ لَكُمْ. ١٠ 10
but whatever has no fins and scales you must not eat; they are unclean to you.
«كُلَّ طَيْرٍ طَاهِرٍ تَأْكُلُونَ. ١١ 11
All clean birds you may eat.
وَهَذَا مَا لَا تَأْكُلُونَ مِنْهُ: ٱلنَّسْرُ وَٱلْأَنُوقُ وَٱلْعُقَابُ ١٢ 12
But these are the birds that you must not eat: the eagle, the vulture, the osprey,
وَٱلْحِدَأَةُ وَٱلْبَاشِقُ وَٱلشَّاهِينُ عَلَى أَجْنَاسِهِ، ١٣ 13
the red kite and black kite, any kind of falcon.
وَكُلُّ غُرَابٍ عَلَى أَجْنَاسِهِ، ١٤ 14
You must not eat any kind of raven,
وَٱلنَّعَامَةُ وَٱلظَّلِيمُ وَٱلسَّأَفُ وَٱلْبَازُ عَلَى أَجْنَاسِهِ، ١٥ 15
and the ostrich, and the night hawk, the sea gull, any kind of hawk,
وَٱلْبُومُ وَٱلْكُرْكِيُّ وَٱلْبَجَعُ ١٦ 16
the little owl, the great owl, the white owl,
وَٱلْقُوقُ وَٱلرَّخَمُ وَٱلْغَوَّاصُ ١٧ 17
the pelican, the carrion vulture, the cormorant.
وَٱللَّقْلَقُ وَٱلْبَبْغَاءُ عَلَى أَجْنَاسِهِ، وَٱلْهُدْهُدُ وَٱلْخُفَّاشُ. ١٨ 18
You must not eat the stork, any kind of heron, the hoopoe, and the bat.
وَكُلُّ دَبِيبِ ٱلطَّيْرِ نَجِسٌ لَكُمْ. لَا يُؤْكَلُ. ١٩ 19
All winged, swarming things are unclean to you; they must not be eaten.
كُلَّ طَيْرٍ طَاهِرٍ تَأْكُلُونَ. ٢٠ 20
You may eat all clean flying things.
«لَا تَأْكُلُوا جُثَّةً مَّا. تُعْطِيهَا لِلْغَرِيبِ ٱلَّذِي فِي أَبْوَابِكَ فَيَأْكُلُهَا أَوْ يَبِيعُهَا لِأَجْنَبِيٍّ، لِأَنَّكَ شَعْبٌ مُقَدَّسٌ لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ. لَا تَطْبُخْ جَدْيًا بِلَبَنِ أُمِّهِ. ٢١ 21
You must not eat of anything that dies of itself; you may give it to the foreigner who is within your towns, that he may eat it; or you may sell it to a foreigner. For you are a nation that is set apart to Yahweh your God. You must not boil a young goat in its mother's milk.
«تَعْشِيرًا تُعَشِّرُ كُلَّ مَحْصُولِ زَرْعِكَ ٱلَّذِي يَخْرُجُ مِنَ ٱلْحَقْلِ سَنَةً بِسَنَةٍ. ٢٢ 22
You must surely tithe all the yield of your seed, that which comes out from the field year after year.
وَتَأْكُلُ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ، فِي ٱلْمَكَانِ ٱلَّذِي يَخْتَارُهُ لِيُحِلَّ ٱسْمَهُ فِيهِ، عُشْرَ حِنْطَتِكَ وَخَمْرِكَ وَزَيْتِكَ، وَأَبْكَارِ بَقَرِكَ وَغَنَمِكَ، لِكَيْ تَتَعَلَّمَ أَنْ تَتَّقِيَ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكَ كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ. ٢٣ 23
You must eat before Yahweh your God, in the place that he will choose as his sanctuary, the tithe of your grain, of your new wine, and of your oil, and the firstborn of your herd and your flock; that you may learn to always honor Yahweh your God.
وَلَكِنْ إِذَا طَالَ عَلَيْكَ ٱلطَّرِيقُ حَتَّى لَا تَقْدِرَ أَنْ تَحْمِلَهُ. إِذَا كَانَ بَعِيدًا عَلَيْكَ ٱلْمَكَانُ ٱلَّذِي يَخْتَارُهُ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ لِيَجْعَلَ ٱسْمَهُ فِيهِ، إِذْ يُبَارِكُكَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ، ٢٤ 24
If the journey is too long for you so that you are not able to carry it, because the place that Yahweh your God will choose as his sanctuary is too far from you, then, when Yahweh God blesses you,
فَبِعْهُ بِفِضَّةٍ، وَصُرَّ ٱلْفِضَّةَ فِي يَدِكَ وَٱذْهَبْ إِلَى ٱلْمَكَانِ ٱلَّذِي يَخْتَارُهُ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ، ٢٥ 25
you will convert the offering into money, tie up the money in your hand, and go to the place that Yahweh your God will choose.
وَأَنْفِقِ ٱلْفِضَّةَ فِي كُلِّ مَا تَشْتَهِي نَفْسُكَ فِي ٱلْبَقَرِ وَٱلْغَنَمِ وَٱلْخَمْرِ وَٱلْمُسْكِرِ وَكُلِّ مَا تَطْلُبُ مِنْكَ نَفْسُكَ، وَكُلْ هُنَاكَ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ وَٱفْرَحْ أَنْتَ وَبَيْتُكَ. ٢٦ 26
There you will spend the money for whatever you desire: for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatever you desire; you will eat there before Yahweh your God, and you will rejoice, you and your household.
وَٱللَّاوِيُّ ٱلَّذِي فِي أَبْوَابِكَ لَا تَتْرُكْهُ، لِأَنَّهُ لَيْسَ لَهُ قِسْمٌ وَلَا نَصِيبٌ مَعَكَ. ٢٧ 27
The Levite who is within your gates—do not forsake him, for he has no portion nor inheritance with you.
«فِي آخِرِ ثَلَاثِ سِنِينَ تُخْرِجُ كُلَّ عُشْرِ مَحْصُولِكَ فِي تِلْكَ ٱلسَّنَةِ وَتَضَعُهُ فِي أَبْوَابِكَ. ٢٨ 28
At the end of every three years you will present all the tithe of your produce in the same year, and you will store it up within your gates;
فَيَأْتِي ٱللَّاوِيُّ، لِأَنَّهُ لَيْسَ لَهُ قِسْمٌ وَلَا نَصِيبٌ مَعَكَ، وَٱلْغَرِيبُ وَٱلْيَتِيمُ وَٱلْأَرْمَلَةُ ٱلَّذِينَ فِي أَبْوَابِكَ، وَيَأْكُلُونَ وَيَشْبَعُونَ، لِكَيْ يُبَارِكَكَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ فِي كُلِّ عَمَلِ يَدِكَ ٱلَّذِي تَعْمَلُ. ٢٩ 29
and the Levite, because he has no portion nor inheritance with you, and the foreigner, and the fatherless, and the widow who are within your gates, will come and eat and be satisfied. Do this so that Yahweh your God may bless you in all the work of your hand that you do.
