اَلتَّثْنِيَة 2

«ثُمَّ تَحَوَّلْنَا وَٱرْتَحَلْنَا إِلَى ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ عَلَى طَرِيقِ بَحْرِ سُوفَ كَمَا كَلَّمَنِي ٱلرَّبُّ، وَدُرْنَا بِجَبَلِ سِعِيرَ أَيَّامًا كَثِيرَةً. ١ 1
Then we turned and took our journey into the wilderness by the way to the Sea of Reeds, as Yahweh had spoken to me; we went around Mount Seir for many days.
ثُمَّ كَلَّمَنِي ٱلرَّبُّ قَائِلًا: ٢ 2
Yahweh spoke to me, saying,
كَفَاكُمْ دَوَرَانٌ بِهَذَا ٱلْجَبَلِ. تَحَوَّلُوا نَحْوَ ٱلشِّمَالِ. ٣ 3
'You have gone around this mountain long enough; turn northward.
وَأَوْصِ ٱلشَّعْبَ قَائِلًا: أَنْتُمْ مَارُّونَ بِتُخْمِ إِخْوَتِكُمْ بَنِي عِيسُو ٱلسَّاكِنِينَ فِي سِعِيرَ، فَيَخَافُونَ مِنْكُمْ فَٱحْتَرِزُوا جِدًّا. ٤ 4
Command the people, saying, “You are to pass through the border of your brothers, the descendants of Esau, who live in Seir; they will be afraid of you. Therefore be careful
لَا تَهْجِمُوا عَلَيْهِمْ، لِأَنِّي لَا أُعْطِيكُمْ مِنْ أَرْضِهِمْ وَلَا وَطْأَةَ قَدَمٍ، لِأَنِّي لِعِيسُو قَدْ أَعْطَيْتُ جَبَلَ سِعِيرَ مِيرَاثًا. ٥ 5
not to fight with them, for I will not give you any of their land, no, not even enough for the sole of a foot to step on; for I have given Mount Seir to Esau as a possession.
طَعَامًا تَشْتَرُونَ مِنْهُمْ بِٱلْفِضَّةِ لِتَأْكُلُوا، وَمَاءً أَيْضًا تَبْتَاعُونَ مِنْهُمْ بِٱلْفِضَّةِ لِتَشْرَبُوا. ٦ 6
You will purchase food from them for money, so that you may eat; you will also buy water from them for money, so that you may drink.
لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكَ قَدْ بَارَكَكَ فِي كُلِّ عَمَلِ يَدِكَ، عَارِفًا مَسِيرَكَ فِي هَذَا ٱلْقَفْرِ ٱلْعَظِيمِ. اَلْآنَ أَرْبَعُونَ سَنَةً لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ مَعَكَ، لَمْ يَنْقُصْ عَنْكَ شَيْءٌ. ٧ 7
For Yahweh your God has blessed you in all the work of your hand; he has known your walking through this great wilderness. For these forty years Yahweh your God has been with you, and you have lacked nothing.”'
فَعَبَرْنَا عَنْ إِخْوَتِنَا بَنِي عِيسُو ٱلسَّاكِنِينَ فِي سِعِيرَ عَلَى طَرِيقِ ٱلْعَرَبَةِ، عَلَى أَيْلَةَ، وَعَلَى عِصْيُونِ جَابِرَ، ثُمَّ تَحَوَّلْنَا وَمَرَرْنَا فِي طَرِيقِ بَرِّيَّةِ مُوآبَ. ٨ 8
So we passed by our brothers, the descendants of Esau who live in Seir, away from the Arabah road, from Elath and from Ezion Geber. Then we turned and passed by the way of the wilderness of Moab.
«فَقَالَ لِي ٱلرَّبُّ: لَا تُعَادِ مُوآبَ وَلَا تُثِرْ عَلَيْهِمْ حَرْبًا، لِأَنِّي لَا أُعْطِيكَ مِنْ أَرْضِهِمْ مِيرَاثًا، لِأَنِّي لِبَنِي لُوطٍ قَدْ أَعْطَيْتُ «عَارَ» مِيرَاثًا. ٩ 9
Yahweh said to me, 'Do not trouble Moab, and do not fight with them in battle. For I will not give you his land for your own possession, because I have given Ar to the descendants of Lot, for their possession.'
ٱلْإِيمِيُّونَ سَكَنُوا فِيهَا قَبْلًا. شَعْبٌ كَبِيرٌ وَكَثِيرٌ وَطَوِيلٌ كَٱلْعَنَاقِيِّينَ. ١٠ 10
(The Emites lived there previously, a people as great, as many, and as tall as the Anakim;
هُمْ أَيْضًا يُحْسَبُونَ رَفَائِيِّينَ كَٱلْعَنَاقِيِّينَ، لَكِنَّ ٱلْمُوآبِيِّينَ يَدْعُونَهُمْ إِيمِيِّينَ. ١١ 11
these also are considered to be the Rephaim, like the Anakim; but the Moabites call them the Emim.
وَفِي سِعِيرَ سَكَنَ قَبْلًا ٱلْحُورِيُّونَ، فَطَرَدَهُمْ بَنُو عِيسُو وَأَبَادُوهُمْ مِنْ قُدَّامِهِمْ وَسَكَنُوا مَكَانَهُمْ، كَمَا فَعَلَ إِسْرَائِيلُ بِأَرْضِ مِيرَاثِهِمِ ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَاهُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ١٢ 12
The Horites also lived in Seir previously, but the descendants of Esau succeeded them. They destroyed them from before them and lived in their place, like Israel did to the land of his possession that Yahweh gave to them.)
اَلْآنَ قُومُوا وَٱعْبُرُوا وَادِيَ زَارَدَ. فَعَبَرْنَا وَادِيَ زَارَدَ. ١٣ 13
“'Now rise up and go over the brook Zered.' So we went over the brook Zered.
وَٱلْأَيَّامُ ٱلَّتِي سِرْنَا فِيهَا مِنْ قَادَشَ بَرْنِيعَ حَتَّى عَبَرْنَا وَادِيَ زَارَدَ، كَانَتْ ثَمَانِيَ وَثَلَاثِينَ سَنَةً، حَتَّى فَنِيَ كُلُّ ٱلْجِيلِ، رِجَالُ ٱلْحَرْبِ مِنْ وَسَطِ ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ، كَمَا أَقْسَمَ ٱلرَّبُّ لَهُمْ. ١٤ 14
Now the days from when we came from Kadesh Barnea until we crossed the brook Zered, were thirty-eight years. It was by that time that all that generation of the men fit for fighting were gone from the people, as Yahweh had sworn to them.
وَيَدُ ٱلرَّبِّ أَيْضًا كَانَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ لِإِبَادَتِهِمْ مِنْ وَسَطِ ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ حَتَّى فَنُوا. ١٥ 15
Moreover, the hand of Yahweh was against that generation in order to destroy them from the people until they were gone.
«فَعِنْدَمَا فَنِيَ جَمِيعُ رِجَالِ ٱلْحَرْبِ بِٱلْمَوْتِ مِنْ وَسَطِ ٱلشَّعْبِ، ١٦ 16
So it happened, when all the men fit for fighting were dead and gone from among the people,
كَلَّمَنِي ٱلرَّبُّ قَائِلًا: ١٧ 17
that Yahweh spoke to me, saying,
أَنْتَ مَارٌّ ٱلْيَوْمَ بِتُخْمِ مُوآبَ، بِعَارَ. ١٨ 18
'You are today to pass over Ar, the border of Moab.
فَمَتَى قَرُبْتَ إِلَى تُجَاهِ بَنِي عَمُّونَ، لَا تُعَادِهِمْ وَلَا تَهْجِمُوا عَلَيْهِمْ، لِأَنِّي لَا أُعْطِيكَ مِنْ أَرْضِ بَنِي عَمُّونَ مِيرَاثًا، لِأَنِّي لِبَنِي لُوطٍ قَدْ أَعْطَيْتُهَا مِيرَاثًا. ١٩ 19
When you come near opposite the people of Ammon, do not trouble them or fight them; for I will not give you any of the land of the people of Ammon as a possession; because I have given it to the descendants of Lot as a possession.'”
هِيَ أَيْضًا تُحْسَبُ أَرْضَ رَفَائِيِّينَ. سَكَنَ ٱلرَّفَائِيُّونَ فِيهَا قَبْلًا، لَكِنَّ ٱلْعَمُّونِيِّينَ يَدْعُونَهُمْ زَمْزُمِيِّينَ. ٢٠ 20
(That also is considered to be a land of the Rephaim. The Rephaim lived there previously—but the Ammonites call them Zamzummim—
شَعْبٌ كَبِيرٌ وَكَثِيرٌ وَطَوِيلٌ كَٱلْعَنَاقِيِّينَ، أَبَادَهُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ مِنْ قُدَّامِهِمْ، فَطَرَدُوهُمْ وَسَكَنُوا مَكَانَهُمْ. ٢١ 21
a people as great, as many, and as tall as the Anakim. But Yahweh destroyed them before the Ammonites, and they succeeded them and lived in their place.
كَمَا فَعَلَ لِبَنِي عِيسُو ٱلسَّاكِنِينَ فِي سِعِيرَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَتْلَفَ ٱلْحُورِيِّينَ مِنْ قُدَّامِهِمْ، فَطَرَدُوهُمْ وَسَكَنُوا مَكَانَهُمْ إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ. ٢٢ 22
This Yahweh also did for the people of Esau, who live in Seir, when he destroyed the Horites from before them, and the descendants of Esau succeeded them and have lived in their place even until today.
وَٱلْعُوِّيُّونَ ٱلسَّاكِنُونَ فِي ٱلْقُرَى إِلَى غَزَّةَ، أَبَادَهُمُ ٱلْكَفْتُورِيُّونَ ٱلَّذِينَ خَرَجُوا مِنْ كَفْتُورَ وَسَكَنُوا مَكَانَهُمْ. ٢٣ 23
As for the Avvites who lived in villages as far as Gaza, the Caphtorim, who came from Caphtor, destroyed them and settled in their place.)
«قُومُوا ٱرْتَحِلُوا وَٱعْبُرُوا وَادِيَ أَرْنُونَ. اُنْظُرْ. قَدْ دَفَعْتُ إِلَى يَدِكَ سِيحُونَ مَلِكَ حَشْبُونَ ٱلْأَمُورِيَّ وَأَرْضَهُ. ٱبْتَدِئْ تَمَلَّكْ وَأَثِرْ عَلَيْهِ حَرْبًا. ٢٤ 24
“'Now rise up, go on your journey, and pass over the Valley of the Arnon; look, I have given into your hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land. Begin to possess it, and fight with him in battle.
فِي هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ أَبْتَدِئُ أَجْعَلُ خَشْيَتَكَ وَخَوْفَكَ أَمَامَ وُجُوهِ ٱلشُّعُوبِ تَحْتَ كُلِّ ٱلسَّمَاءِ. ٱلَّذِينَ يَسْمَعُونَ خَبَرَكَ يَرْتَعِدُونَ وَيَجْزَعُونَ أَمَامَكَ. ٢٥ 25
Today I will begin to put the fear and terror of you on the peoples that are under the whole sky; they will hear news about you and will tremble and be in anguish because of you.'
«فَأَرْسَلْتُ رُسُلًا مِنْ بَرِّيَّةِ قَدِيمُوتَ إِلَى سِيحُونَ مَلِكِ حَشْبُونَ بِكَلَامِ سَلَامٍ قَائِلًا: ٢٦ 26
I sent messengers from the wilderness of Kedemoth to Sihon, king of Heshbon, with words of peace, saying,
أَمُرُّ فِي أَرْضِكَ. أَسْلُكُ ٱلطَّرِيقَ ٱلطَّرِيقَ، لَا أَمِيلُ يَمِينًا وَلَا شِمَالًا. ٢٧ 27
'Let me pass through your land; I will go along the highway; I will turn neither to the right hand nor to the left.
طَعَامًا بِٱلْفِضَّةِ تَبِيعُنِي لِآكُلَ، وَمَاءً بِٱلْفِضَّةِ تُعْطِينِي لِأَشْرَبَ. أَمُرُّ بِرِجْلَيَّ فَقَطْ. ٢٨ 28
You will sell me food for money, so that I may eat; give me water for money, so that I may drink; only let me pass through on my feet;
كَمَا فَعَلَ بِي بَنُو عِيسُو ٱلسَّاكِنُونَ فِي سِعِيرَ، وَٱلْمُوآبِيُّونَ ٱلسَّاكِنُونَ فِي عَارَ، إِلَى أَنْ أَعْبُرَ ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَانَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُنَا. ٢٩ 29
as the descendants of Esau who live in Seir, and as the Moabites who live in Ar, did for me; until I pass over the Jordan into the land that Yahweh our God is giving us.'
لَكِنْ لَمْ يَشَأْ سِيحُونُ مَلِكُ حَشْبُونَ أَنْ يَدَعَنَا نَمُرَّ بِهِ، لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكَ قَسَّى رُوحَهُ، وَقَوَّى قَلْبَهُ لِكَيْ يَدْفَعَهُ إِلَى يَدِكَ كَمَا فِي هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ. ٣٠ 30
But Sihon, king of Heshbon, would not let us pass by him; for Yahweh your God had hardened his mind and made his heart obstinate, that he might defeat him by your might, which he has now done today.
وَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِي: اُنْظُرْ. قَدِ ٱبْتَدَأْتُ أَدْفَعُ أَمَامَكَ سِيحُونَ وَأَرْضَهُ. ٱبْتَدِئْ تَمَلَّكْ حَتَّى تَمْتَلِكَ أَرْضَهُ. ٣١ 31
Yahweh said to me, 'Look, I have begun to deliver up Sihon and his land before you; begin to possess it, in order that you may inherit his land.'
فَخَرَجَ سِيحُونُ لِلِقَائِنَا هُوَ وَجَمِيعُ قَوْمِهِ لِلْحَرْبِ إِلَى يَاهَصَ، ٣٢ 32
Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to fight at Jahaz.
فَدَفَعَهُ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُنَا أَمَامَنَا، فَضَرَبْنَاهُ وَبَنِيهِ وَجَمِيعَ قَوْمِهِ. ٣٣ 33
Yahweh our God gave him over to us and we defeated him and his sons and all his people.
وَأَخَذْنَا كُلَّ مُدُنِهِ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْوَقْتِ، وَحَرَّمْنَا مِنْ كُلِّ مَدِينَةٍ: ٱلرِّجَالَ وَٱلنِّسَاءَ وَٱلْأَطْفَالَ. لَمْ نُبْقِ شَارِدًا. ٣٤ 34
We took all his cities at that time and completely destroyed every city—men and the women and the little ones; we left no survivor.
لَكِنَّ ٱلْبَهَائِمَ نَهَبْنَاهَا لِأَنْفُسِنَا، وَغَنِيمَةَ ٱلْمُدُنِ ٱلَّتِي أَخَذْنَا، ٣٥ 35
Only the cattle we took as spoils for ourselves, along with the spoil of the cities that we had taken.
مِنْ عَرُوعِيرَ ٱلَّتِي عَلَى حَافَةِ وَادِي أَرْنُونَ وَٱلْمَدِينَةِ ٱلَّتِي فِي ٱلْوَادِي، إِلَى جِلْعَادَ، لَمْ تَكُنْ قَرْيَةٌ قَدِ ٱمْتَنَعَتْ عَلَيْنَا. ٱلْجَمِيعُ دَفَعَهُ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُنَا أَمَامَنَا. ٣٦ 36
From Aroer, which is on the edge of the Valley of the Arnon, and from the city that is in the valley, all the way to Gilead, there was not a city too high for us. Yahweh our God gave them into our hands.
وَلَكِنَّ أَرْضَ بَنِي عَمُّونَ لَمْ نَقْرَبْهَا. كُلَّ نَاحِيَةِ وَادِي يَبُّوقَ وَمُدُنَ ٱلْجَبَلِ وَكُلَّ مَا أَوْصَى ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُنَا. ٣٧ 37
It was only to the land of the descendants of Ammon that you did not go, as well as all the side of the Jabbok River, and the cities of the hill country—wherever Yahweh our God had forbidden us to go.
