اَلتَّثْنِيَة 18

«لَا يَكُونُ لِلْكَهَنَةِ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ، كُلِّ سِبْطِ لَاوِي، قِسْمٌ وَلَا نَصِيبٌ مَعَ إِسْرَائِيلَ. يَأْكُلُونَ وَقَائِدَ ٱلرَّبِّ وَنَصِيبَهُ. ١ 1
The priests, who are Levites, and all the tribe of Levi, will have no portion nor inheritance with Israel; they must eat the offerings of Yahweh made by fire as their inheritance.
فَلَا يَكُونُ لَهُ نَصِيبٌ فِي وَسَطِ إِخْوَتِهِ. ٱلرَّبُّ هُوَ نَصِيبُهُ كَمَا قَالَ لَهُ. ٢ 2
They must have no inheritance among their brothers; Yahweh is their inheritance, as he said to them.
«وَهَذَا يَكُونُ حَقُّ ٱلْكَهَنَةِ مِنَ ٱلشَّعْبِ، مِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ يَذْبَحُونَ ٱلذَّبَائِحَ بَقَرًا كَانَتْ أَوْ غَنَمًا. يُعْطُونَ ٱلْكَاهِنَ ٱلسَّاعِدَ وَٱلْفَكَّيْنِ وَٱلْكِرْشَ. ٣ 3
This is the share given to the priests, given to them from the people who offer a sacrifice, whether it be an oxen or a sheep: the shoulder, the two cheeks, and the inner parts.
وَتُعْطِيهِ أَوَّلَ حِنْطَتِكَ وَخَمْرِكَ وَزَيْتِكَ، وَأَوَّلَ جَزَازِ غَنَمِكَ. ٤ 4
The firstfruits of your grain, of your new wine, and of your oil, and the first of the fleece of your sheep, you must give him.
لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكَ قَدِ ٱخْتَارَهُ مِنْ جَمِيعِ أَسْبَاطِكَ لِكَيْ يَقِفَ لِيَخْدِمَ بِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ، هُوَ وَبَنُوهُ كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ. ٥ 5
For Yahweh your God has chosen him out of all your tribes to stand to serve in the name of Yahweh, him and his sons forever.
«وَإِذَا جَاءَ لَاوِيٌّ مِنْ أَحَدِ أَبْوَابِكَ مِنْ جَمِيعِ إِسْرَائِيلَ حَيْثُ هُوَ مُتَغَرِّبٌ، وَجَاءَ بِكُلِّ رَغْبَةِ نَفْسِهِ إِلَى ٱلْمَكَانِ ٱلَّذِي يَخْتَارُهُ ٱلرَّبُّ، ٦ 6
If a Levite comes from any of your towns out of all Israel from where he is living, and desires with all his soul to come to the place Yahweh will choose,
وَخَدَمَ بِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ مِثْلَ جَمِيعِ إِخْوَتِهِ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ ٱلْوَاقِفِينَ هُنَاكَ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ، ٧ 7
then he must serve in the name of Yahweh his God as all his brothers the Levites do, who stand there before Yahweh.
يَأْكُلُونَ أَقْسَامًا مُتَسَاوِيَةً، عَدَا مَا يَبِيعُهُ عَنْ آبَائِهِ. ٨ 8
They must have similar portions to eat, besides of what comes of the sale of his family's inheritance.
«مَتَى دَخَلْتَ ٱلْأَرْضَ ٱلَّتِي يُعْطِيكَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ، لَا تَتَعَلَّمْ أَنْ تَفْعَلَ مِثْلَ رِجْسِ أُولَئِكَ ٱلْأُمَمِ. ٩ 9
When you have come into the land that Yahweh your God is giving you, you must not learn to observe the abominations of those nations.
لَا يُوجَدْ فِيكَ مَنْ يُجِيزُ ٱبْنَهُ أَوِ ٱبْنَتَهُ فِي ٱلنَّارِ، وَلَا مَنْ يَعْرُفُ عِرَافَةً، وَلَا عَائِفٌ وَلَا مُتَفَائِلٌ وَلَا سَاحِرٌ، ١٠ 10
There must not be found among you anyone who sacrifices his son or his daughter in the fire, anyone who uses divination or tells fortunes, or reads signs found in a cup, or engages in witchcraft,
وَلَا مَنْ يَرْقِي رُقْيَةً، وَلَا مَنْ يَسْأَلُ جَانًّا أَوْ تَابِعَةً، وَلَا مَنْ يَسْتَشِيرُ ٱلْمَوْتَى. ١١ 11
any charmer, anyone who conjurs up spirits, or one who casts spells, or who talks with spirits of the dead.
لِأَنَّ كُلَّ مَنْ يَفْعَلُ ذَلِكَ مَكْرُوهٌ عِنْدَ ٱلرَّبِّ. وَبِسَبَبِ هَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْجَاسِ، ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ طَارِدُهُمْ مِنْ أَمَامِكَ. ١٢ 12
For whoever does these things is an abomination to Yahweh; it is because of these abominations that Yahweh your God is driving them out from before you.
تَكُونُ كَامِلًا لَدَى ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ. ١٣ 13
You must be blameless before Yahweh your God.
إِنَّ هَؤُلَاءِ ٱلْأُمَمَ ٱلَّذِينَ تَخْلُفُهُمْ يَسْمَعُونَ لِلْعَائِفِينَ وَٱلْعَرَّافِينَ. وَأَمَّا أَنْتَ فَلَمْ يَسْمَحْ لَكَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ هَكَذَا. ١٤ 14
For these nations that you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery and divination; but as for you, Yahweh your God has not allowed you to do so.
«يُقِيمُ لَكَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ نَبِيًّا مِنْ وَسَطِكَ مِنْ إِخْوَتِكَ مِثْلِي. لَهُ تَسْمَعُونَ. ١٥ 15
Yahweh your God will raise up for you a prophet from among you, one of your brothers, like me. You must listen to him.
حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا طَلَبْتَ مِنَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ فِي حُورِيبَ يَوْمَ ٱلِٱجْتِمَاعِ قَائِلًا: لَا أَعُودُ أَسْمَعُ صَوْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِي وَلَا أَرَى هَذِهِ ٱلنَّارَ ٱلْعَظِيمَةَ أَيْضًا لِئَلَّا أَمُوتَ. ١٦ 16
This is what you asked from Yahweh your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly, saying, 'Let us not hear again the voice of Yahweh our God, nor see this great fire anymore, or we will die.'
قَالَ لِيَ ٱلرَّبُّ: قَدْ أَحْسَنُوا فِي مَا تَكَلَّمُوا. ١٧ 17
Yahweh said to me, 'What they have said is good.
أُقِيمُ لَهُمْ نَبِيًّا مِنْ وَسَطِ إِخْوَتِهِمْ مِثْلَكَ، وَأَجْعَلُ كَلَامِي فِي فَمِهِ، فَيُكَلِّمُهُمْ بِكُلِّ مَا أُوصِيهِ بِهِ. ١٨ 18
I will raise up a prophet for them from among their brothers, just like you. I will put my words in his mouth, and he will speak to them all that I command him.
وَيَكُونُ أَنَّ ٱلْإِنْسَانَ ٱلَّذِي لَا يَسْمَعُ لِكَلَامِي ٱلَّذِي يَتَكَلَّمُ بِهِ بِٱسْمِي أَنَا أُطَالِبُهُ. ١٩ 19
It will happen that if anyone does not listen to the words of mine that he speaks in my name, I will require it of him.
وَأَمَّا ٱلنَّبِيُّ ٱلَّذِي يُطْغِي، فَيَتَكَلَّمُ بِٱسْمِي كَلَامًا لَمْ أُوصِهِ أَنْ يَتَكَلَّمَ بِهِ، أَوِ ٱلَّذِي يَتَكَلَّمُ بِٱسْمِ آلِهَةٍ أُخْرَى، فَيَمُوتُ ذَلِكَ ٱلنَّبِيُّ. ٢٠ 20
But the prophet who speaks a word arrogantly in my name, a word that I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that very prophet must die.'
وَإِنْ قُلْتَ فِي قَلْبِكَ: كَيْفَ نَعْرِفُ ٱلْكَلَامَ ٱلَّذِي لَمْ يَتَكَلَّمْ بِهِ ٱلرَّبُّ؟ ٢١ 21
This is what you must say in your heart: 'How will we recognize a message that Yahweh has not spoken?'
فَمَا تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ ٱلنَّبِيُّ بِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ وَلَمْ يَحْدُثْ وَلَمْ يَصِرْ، فَهُوَ ٱلْكَلَامُ ٱلَّذِي لَمْ يَتَكَلَّمْ بِهِ ٱلرَّبُّ، بَلْ بِطُغْيَانٍ تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ ٱلنَّبِيُّ، فَلَا تَخَفْ مِنْهُ. ٢٢ 22
You will recognize a message that Yahweh has spoken when a prophet speaks in the name of Yahweh. If that thing does not occur nor happen, then that is something that Yahweh has not spoken and the prophet has spoken it arrogantly, and you must not be afraid of him.
