اَلتَّثْنِيَة 28

«وَإِنْ سَمِعْتَ سَمْعًا لِصَوْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ لِتَحْرِصَ أَنْ تَعْمَلَ بِجَمِيعِ وَصَايَاهُ ٱلَّتِي أَنَا أُوصِيكَ بِهَا ٱلْيَوْمَ، يَجْعَلُكَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ مُسْتَعْلِيًا عَلَى جَمِيعِ قَبَائِلِ ٱلْأَرْضِ، ١ 1
If you listen carefully to the voice of Yahweh your God so as to keep all his commandments that I am commanding you today, Yahweh your God will set you above all the other nations of the earth.
وَتَأْتِي عَلَيْكَ جَمِيعُ هَذِهِ ٱلْبَرَكَاتِ وَتُدْرِكُكَ، إِذَا سَمِعْتَ لِصَوْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ. ٢ 2
All these blessings will come on you and overtake you, if you listen to the voice of Yahweh your God.
مُبَارَكًا تَكُونُ فِي ٱلْمَدِينَةِ، وَمُبَارَكًا تَكُونُ فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ. ٣ 3
Blessed will you be in the city, and blessed will you be in the field.
وَمُبَارَكَةً تَكُونُ ثَمَرَةُ بَطْنِكَ وَثَمَرَةُ أَرْضِكَ وَثَمَرَةُ بَهَائِمِكَ، نِتَاجُ بَقَرِكَ وَإِنَاثُ غَنَمِكَ. ٤ 4
Blessed will be the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your ground, and the fruit of your beasts, the increase of your cattle, and the young of your flock.
مُبَارَكَةً تَكُونُ سَلَّتُكَ وَمِعْجَنُكَ. ٥ 5
Blessed will be your basket and your kneading trough.
مُبَارَكًا تَكُونُ فِي دُخُولِكَ، وَمُبَارَكًا تَكُونُ فِي خُرُوجِكَ. ٦ 6
Blessed will you be when you come in, and blessed will you be when you go out.
يَجْعَلُ ٱلرَّبُّ أَعْدَاءَكَ ٱلْقَائِمِينَ عَلَيْكَ مُنْهَزِمِينَ أَمَامَكَ. فِي طَرِيقٍ وَاحِدَةٍ يَخْرُجُونَ عَلَيْكَ، وَفِي سَبْعِ طُرُقٍ يَهْرُبُونَ أَمَامَكَ. ٧ 7
Yahweh will cause your enemies who rise up against you to be struck down before you; they will come out against you one way but will flee before you seven ways.
يَأْمُرُ لَكَ ٱلرَّبُّ بِٱلْبَرَكَةِ فِي خَزَائِنِكَ وَفِي كُلِّ مَا تَمْتَدُّ إِلَيْهِ يَدُكَ، وَيُبَارِكُكَ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي يُعْطِيكَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ. ٨ 8
Yahweh will command the blessing to come on you in your barns and in all that you put your hand to; he will bless you in the land that he is giving you.
يُقِيمُكَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِنَفْسِهِ شَعْبًا مُقَدَّسًا كَمَا حَلَفَ لَكَ، إِذَا حَفِظْتَ وَصَايَا ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ وَسَلَكْتَ فِي طُرُقِهِ. ٩ 9
Yahweh will establish you as a people that is set apart for himself, as he has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of Yahweh your God, and walk in his ways.
فَيَرَى جَمِيعُ شُعُوبِ ٱلْأَرْضِ أَنَّ ٱسْمَ ٱلرَّبِّ قَدْ سُمِّيَ عَلَيْكَ وَيَخَافُونَ مِنْكَ. ١٠ 10
All the peoples of the earth will see that you are called by the name of Yahweh, and they will be afraid of you.
وَيَزِيدُكَ ٱلرَّبُّ خَيْرًا فِي ثَمَرَةِ بَطْنِكَ وَثَمَرَةِ بَهَائِمِكَ وَثَمَرَةِ أَرْضِكَ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي حَلَفَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِآبَائِكَ أَنْ يُعْطِيَكَ. ١١ 11
Yahweh will make you very prosperous in the fruit of your body, in the fruit of your cattle, in the fruit of your ground, in the land that he swore to your fathers to give you.
يَفْتَحُ لَكَ ٱلرَّبُّ كَنْزَهُ ٱلصَّالِحَ، ٱلسَّمَاءَ، لِيُعْطِيَ مَطَرَ أَرْضِكَ فِي حِينِهِ، وَلْيُبَارِكَ كُلَّ عَمَلِ يَدِكَ، فَتُقْرِضُ أُمَمًا كَثِيرَةً وَأَنْتَ لَا تَقْتَرِضُ. ١٢ 12
Yahweh will open to you his storehouse of the heavens to give the rain for your land at the right time, and to bless all the work of your hand; you will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow.
وَيَجْعَلُكَ ٱلرَّبُّ رَأْسًا لَا ذَنَبًا، وَتَكُونُ فِي ٱلِٱرْتِفَاعِ فَقَطْ وَلَا تَكُونُ فِي ٱلِٱنْحِطَاطِ، إِذَا سَمِعْتَ لِوَصَايَا ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ ٱلَّتِي أَنَا أُوصِيكَ بِهَا ٱلْيَوْمَ، لِتَحْفَظَ وَتَعْمَلَ ١٣ 13
Yahweh will make you the head, and not the tail; you will be only above, and you will never be beneath, if you listen to the commandments of Yahweh your God that I am commanding you today, so as to observe and to do them,
وَلَا تَزِيغَ عَنْ جَمِيعِ ٱلْكَلِمَاتِ ٱلَّتِي أَنَا أُوصِيكَ بِهَا ٱلْيَوْمَ يَمِينًا أَوْ شِمَالًا، لِكَيْ تَذْهَبَ وَرَاءَ آلِهَةٍ أُخْرَى لِتَعْبُدَهَا. ١٤ 14
and if you do not turn away from any of the words that I am commanding you today, to the right hand or to the left, so as to go after other gods to serve them.
«وَلَكِنْ إِنْ لَمْ تَسْمَعْ لِصَوْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ لِتَحْرِصَ أَنْ تَعْمَلَ بِجَمِيعِ وَصَايَاهُ وَفَرَائِضِهِ ٱلَّتِي أَنَا أُوصِيكَ بِهَا ٱلْيَوْمَ، تَأْتِي عَلَيْكَ جَمِيعُ هَذِهِ ٱللَّعَنَاتِ وَتُدْرِكُكَ: ١٥ 15
But if you do not listen to the voice of Yahweh your God, so as to keep all his commandments and his statutes that I am commanding you today, then all these curses will come on you and overtake you.
مَلْعُونًا تَكُونُ فِي ٱلْمَدِينَةِ وَمَلْعُونًا تَكُونُ فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ. ١٦ 16
Cursed will you be in the city, and cursed will you be in the field.
مَلْعُونَةً تَكُونُ سَلَّتُكَ وَمِعْجَنُكَ. ١٧ 17
Cursed will be your basket and your kneading trough.
مَلْعُونَةً تَكُونُ ثَمَرَةُ بَطْنِكَ وَثَمَرَةُ أَرْضِكَ، نِتَاجُ بَقَرِكَ وَإِنَاثُ غَنَمِكَ. ١٨ 18
Cursed will be the fruit of your body, the fruit of your ground, the increase of your cattle, and the young of your flock.
مَلْعُونًا تَكُونُ فِي دُخُولِكَ، وَمَلْعُونًا تَكُونُ فِي خُرُوجِكَ. ١٩ 19
Cursed will you be when you come in, and cursed will you be when you go out.
يُرْسِلُ ٱلرَّبُّ عَلَيْكَ ٱللَّعْنَ وَٱلِٱضْطِرَابَ وَٱلزَّجْرَ فِي كُلِّ مَا تَمْتَدُّ إِلَيْهِ يَدُكَ لِتَعْمَلَهُ، حَتَّى تَهْلِكَ وَتَفْنَى سَرِيعًا مِنْ أَجْلِ سُوْءِ أَفْعَالِكَ إِذْ تَرَكْتَنِي. ٢٠ 20
Yahweh will send on you curses, confusion, and rebukes in all that you put your hand to, until you are destroyed, and until you perish quickly because of your wicked actions by which you will have forsaken me.
يُلْصِقُ بِكَ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلْوَبَأَ حَتَّى يُبِيدَكَ عَنِ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي أَنْتَ دَاخِلٌ إِلَيْهَا لِكَيْ تَمْتَلِكَهَا. ٢١ 21
Yahweh will make the plague cling to you until he destroys you from off the land that you are going in to possess.
يَضْرِبُكَ ٱلرَّبُّ بِٱلسِّلِّ وَٱلْحُمَّى وَٱلْبُرَدَاءِ وَٱلِٱلْتِهَابِ وَٱلْجَفَافِ وَٱللَّفْحِ وَٱلذُّبُولِ، فَتَتَّبِعُكَ حَتَّى تُفْنِيَكَ. ٢٢ 22
Yahweh will attack you with infectious diseases, with fever, with inflammation, and with drought and blistering heat, and with scorching winds and mildew. These will pursue you until you perish.
وَتَكُونُ سَمَاؤُكَ ٱلَّتِي فَوْقَ رَأْسِكَ نُحَاسًا، وَٱلْأَرْضُ ٱلَّتِي تَحْتَكَ حَدِيدًا. ٢٣ 23
Your skies that are over your head will be bronze, and the earth that is under you will be iron.
وَيَجْعَلُ ٱلرَّبُّ مَطَرَ أَرْضِكَ غُبَارًا، وَتُرَابًا يُنَزِّلُ عَلَيْكَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ حَتَّى تَهْلِكَ. ٢٤ 24
Yahweh will make the rain of your land into powder and dust; from the heavens will it come down on you, until you are destroyed.
يَجْعَلُكَ ٱلرَّبُّ مُنْهَزِمًا أَمَامَ أَعْدَائِكَ. فِي طَرِيقٍ وَاحِدَةٍ تَخْرُجُ عَلَيْهِمْ، وَفِي سَبْعِ طُرُقٍ تَهْرُبُ أَمَامَهُمْ، وَتَكُونُ قَلِقًا فِي جَمِيعِ مَمَالِكِ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٢٥ 25
Yahweh will cause you to be struck down before your enemies; you will go out one way against them but will flee before them seven ways. You will be tossed to and fro among all the kingdoms of the earth.
وَتَكُونُ جُثَّتُكَ طَعَامًا لِجَمِيعِ طُيُورِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَوُحُوشِ ٱلْأَرْضِ وَلَيْسَ مَنْ يُزْعِجُهَا. ٢٦ 26
Your dead body will be food to all the birds of the heavens and to the beasts of the earth; there will be no one to frighten them away.
يَضْرِبُكَ ٱلرَّبُّ بِقُرْحَةِ مِصْرَ وَبِالْبَوَاسِيرِ وَٱلْجَرَبِ وَٱلْحِكَّةِ حَتَّى لَا تَسْتَطِيعَ ٱلشِّفَاءَ. ٢٧ 27
Yahweh will attack you with the boils of Egypt and with ulcers, scurvy, and itch, from which you cannot be healed.
يَضْرِبُكَ ٱلرَّبُّ بِجُنُونٍ وَعَمًى وَحَيْرَةِ قَلْبٍ، ٢٨ 28
Yahweh will attack you with madness, with blindness, and with mental confusion.
فَتَتَلَمَّسُ فِي ٱلظُّهْرِ كَمَا يَتَلَمَّسُ ٱلْأَعْمَى فِي ٱلظَّلَامِ، وَلَا تَنْجَحُ فِي طُرُقِكَ بَلْ لَا تَكُونُ إِلَّا مَظْلُومًا مَغْصُوبًا كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ وَلَيْسَ مُخَلِّصٌ. ٢٩ 29
You will grope about at noonday like the blind grope in the darkness, and you will not prosper in your ways; you will be always oppressed and robbed, and there will be no one to save you.
تَخْطُبُ ٱمْرَأَةً وَرَجُلٌ آخَرُ يَضْطَجِعُ مَعَهَا. تَبْنِي بَيْتًا وَلَا تَسْكُنُ فِيهِ. تَغْرِسُ كَرْمًا وَلَا تَسْتَغِلُّهُ. ٣٠ 30
You will become engaged to a woman, but another man will seize her and rape her. You will build a house but not live in it; you will plant a vineyard but not enjoy its fruit.
يُذْبَحُ ثَوْرُكَ أَمَامَ عَيْنَيْكَ وَلَا تَأْكُلُ مِنْهُ. يُغْتَصَبُ حِمَارُكَ مِنْ أَمَامِ وَجْهِكَ وَلَا يَرْجِعُ إِلَيْكَ. تُدْفَعُ غَنَمُكَ إِلَى أَعْدَائِكَ وَلَيْسَ لَكَ مُخَلِّصٌ. ٣١ 31
Your ox will be slain before your eyes, but you will not eat its meat; your donkey will be forcibly taken away from before you and will not be restored to you. Your sheep will be given to your enemies, and you will have no one to aid you.
يُسَلَّمُ بَنُوكَ وَبَنَاتُكَ لِشَعْبٍ آخَرَ وَعَيْنَاكَ تَنْظُرَانِ إِلَيْهِمْ طُولَ ٱلنَّهَارِ، فَتَكِلَّانِ وَلَيْسَ فِي يَدِكَ طَائِلَةٌ. ٣٢ 32
Your sons and your daughters will be given to other peoples; your eyes will look for them the entire day, but will fail with longing for them. There will be no strength in your hand.
ثَمَرُ أَرْضِكَ وَكُلُّ تَعَبِكَ يَأْكُلُهُ شَعْبٌ لَا تَعْرِفُهُ، فَلَا تَكُونُ إِلَّا مَظْلُومًا وَمَسْحُوقًا كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ. ٣٣ 33
The harvest of your land and of all your labors—a nation that you do not know will eat it up; you will always be oppressed and crushed,
وَتَكُونُ مَجْنُونًا مِنْ مَنْظَرِ عَيْنَيْكَ ٱلَّذِي تَنْظُرُ. ٣٤ 34
so that you will become insane by what you have to see happen.
يَضْرِبُكَ ٱلرَّبُّ بِقَرْحٍ خَبِيثٍ عَلَى ٱلرُّكْبَتَيْنِ وَعَلَى ٱلسَّاقَيْنِ، حَتَّى لَا تَسْتَطِيعَ ٱلشِّفَاءَ مِنْ أَسْفَلِ قَدَمِكَ إِلَى قِمَّةِ رَأْسِكَ. ٣٥ 35
Yahweh will attack you in the knees and legs with severe boils from which you cannot be cured, from the bottom of your feet to the top of your head.
يَذْهَبُ بِكَ ٱلرَّبُّ وَبِمَلِكِكَ ٱلَّذِي تُقِيمُهُ عَلَيْكَ إِلَى أُمَّةٍ لَمْ تَعْرِفْهَا أَنْتَ وَلَا آبَاؤُكَ، وَتَعْبُدُ هُنَاكَ آلِهَةً أُخْرَى مِنْ خَشَبٍ وَحَجَرٍ، ٣٦ 36
Yahweh will take you and the king whom you will place over yourself to a nation that you have not known, neither you nor your ancestors; there you will worship other gods of wood and stone.
وَتَكُونُ دَهَشًا وَمَثَلًا وَهُزْأَةً فِي جَمِيعِ ٱلشُّعُوبِ ٱلَّذِينَ يَسُوقُكَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَيْهِمْ. ٣٧ 37
You will become a source of horror, a proverb, and a byword, among all the peoples where Yahweh will lead you away.
بِذَارًا كَثِيرًا تُخْرِجُ إِلَى ٱلْحَقْلِ، وَقَلِيلًا تَجْمَعُ، لِأَنَّ ٱلْجَرَادَ يَأْكُلُهُ. ٣٨ 38
You will take much seed out into the field, but will gather little seed in, for the locusts will consume it.
كُرُومًا تَغْرِسُ وَتَشْتَغِلُ، وَخَمْرًا لَا تَشْرَبُ وَلَا تَجْنِي، لِأَنَّ ٱلدُّودَ يَأْكُلُهَا. ٣٩ 39
You will plant vineyards and cultivate them, but you will neither drink any of the wine, nor even gather in the grapes, for worms will eat them.
يَكُونُ لَكَ زَيْتُونٌ فِي جَمِيعِ تُخُومِكَ، وَبِزَيْتٍ لَا تَدَّهِنُ، لِأَنَّ زَيْتُونَكَ يَنْتَثِرُ. ٤٠ 40
You will have olive trees within all your territory, but you will not rub any of the oil on yourself, for your olive trees will drop their fruit.
بَنِينَ وَبَنَاتٍ تَلِدُ وَلَا يَكُونُونَ لَكَ، لِأَنَّهُمْ إِلَى ٱلسَّبْيِ يَذْهَبُونَ. ٤١ 41
You will have sons and daughters, but they will not remain yours, for they will go into captivity.
جَمِيعُ أَشْجَارِكَ وَأَثْمَارِ أَرْضِكَ يَتَوَلَّاهُ ٱلصَّرْصَرُ. ٤٢ 42
All your trees and the fruit of your ground—the locusts will take them over.
اَلْغَرِيبُ ٱلَّذِي فِي وَسَطِكَ يَسْتَعْلِي عَلَيْكَ مُتَصَاعِدًا، وَأَنْتَ تَنْحَطُّ مُتَنَازِلًا. ٤٣ 43
The foreigner who is among you will rise up above you higher and higher; you yourself will come down lower and lower.
هُوَ يُقْرِضُكَ وَأَنْتَ لَا تُقْرِضُهُ. هُوَ يَكُونُ رَأْسًا وَأَنْتَ تَكُونُ ذَنَبًا. ٤٤ 44
He will lend to you, but you will not lend to him; he will be the head, and you will be the tail.
وَتَأْتِي عَلَيْكَ جَمِيعُ هَذِهِ ٱللَّعَنَاتِ وَتَتَّبِعُكَ وَتُدْرِكُكَ حَتَّى تَهْلِكَ، لِأَنَّكَ لَمْ تَسْمَعْ لِصَوْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ لِتَحْفَظَ وَصَايَاهُ وَفَرَائِضَهُ ٱلَّتِي أَوْصَاكَ بِهَا. ٤٥ 45
All these curses will come on you and will pursue and overtake you until you are destroyed. This will happen because you did not listen to the voice of Yahweh your God, so as to keep his commandments and his regulations that he commanded you.
فَتَكُونُ فِيكَ آيَةً وَأُعْجُوبَةً وَفِي نَسْلِكَ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ. ٤٦ 46
These curses will be on you as signs and wonders, and on your descendants forever.
مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّكَ لَمْ تَعْبُدِ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكَ بِفَرَحٍ وَبِطِيبَةِ قَلْبٍ لِكَثْرَةِ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ. ٤٧ 47
Because you did not worship Yahweh your God with joyfulness and gladness of heart when you were in prosperity,
تُسْتَعْبَدُ لِأَعْدَائِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ يُرْسِلُهُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ عَلَيْكَ فِي جُوعٍ وَعَطَشٍ وَعُرْيٍ وَعَوَزِ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ. فَيَجْعَلُ نِيرَ حَدِيدٍ عَلَى عُنُقِكَ حَتَّى يُهْلِكَكَ. ٤٨ 48
therefore will you serve the enemies that Yahweh will send against you; you will serve them in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in poverty. He will put a yoke of iron on your neck until he destroys you.
يَجْلِبُ ٱلرَّبُّ عَلَيْكَ أُمَّةً مِنْ بَعِيدٍ، مِنْ أَقْصَاءِ ٱلْأَرْضِ كَمَا يَطِيرُ ٱلنَّسْرُ، أُمَّةً لَا تَفْهَمُ لِسَانَهَا، ٤٩ 49
Yahweh will bring a nation against you from far away, from the ends of the earth, like an eagle flies to its victim, a nation whose language you do not understand;
أُمَّةً جَافِيَةَ ٱلْوَجْهِ لَا تَهَابُ ٱلشَّيْخَ وَلَا تَحِنُّ إِلَى ٱلْوَلَدِ، ٥٠ 50
a nation with a fierce face that does not respect the aged and does not show favor to the young.
فَتَأْكُلُ ثَمَرَةَ بَهَائِمِكَ وَثَمَرَةَ أَرْضِكَ حَتَّى تَهْلِكَ، وَلَا تُبْقِي لَكَ قَمْحًا وَلَا خَمْرًا وَلَا زَيْتًا، وَلَا نِتَاجَ بَقَرِكَ وَلَا إِنَاثَ غَنَمِكَ، حَتَّى تُفْنِيَكَ. ٥١ 51
They will eat the young of your cattle and the fruit of your land until you are destroyed. They will leave for you no grain, new wine, or oil, no young of your cattle or of your flock, until they have caused you to perish.
وَتُحَاصِرُكَ فِي جَمِيعِ أَبْوَابِكَ حَتَّى تَهْبِطَ أَسْوَارُكَ ٱلشَّامِخَةُ ٱلْحَصِينَةُ ٱلَّتِي أَنْتَ تَثِقُ بِهَا فِي كُلِّ أَرْضِكَ. تُحَاصِرُكَ فِي جَمِيعِ أَبْوَابِكَ، فِي كُلِّ أَرْضِكَ ٱلَّتِي يُعْطِيكَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ. ٥٢ 52
They will besiege you in all your city gates, until your high and fortified walls come down everywhere in your land, walls in which you had trusted. They will besiege you within all your city gates throughout all the land that Yahweh your God had given you.
فَتَأْكُلُ ثَمَرَةَ بَطْنِكَ، لَحْمَ بَنِيكَ وَبَنَاتِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَعْطَاكَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ فِي ٱلْحِصَارِ وَٱلضِّيقَةِ ٱلَّتِي يُضَايِقُكَ بِهَا عَدُوُّكَ. ٥٣ 53
You will eat the fruit of your own body, the flesh of your sons and of your daughters, whom Yahweh your God gave you, in the siege and in the distress with which your enemies will put upon you.
ٱلرَّجُلُ ٱلْمُتَنَعِّمُ فِيكَ وَٱلْمُتَرَفِّهُ جِدًّا، تَبْخُلُ عَيْنُهُ عَلَى أَخِيهِ وَٱمْرَأَةِ حِضْنِهِ وَبَقِيَّةِ أَوْلَادِهِ ٱلَّذِينَ يُبْقِيهِمْ، ٥٤ 54
The man who is tender and very delicate among you—he will be envious of his brother and his own dear wife, and of whatever children he has left.
بِأَنْ يُعْطِيَ أَحَدَهُمْ مِنْ لَحْمِ بَنِيهِ ٱلَّذِي يَأْكُلُهُ، لِأَنَّهُ لَمْ يُبْقَ لَهُ شَيْءٌ فِي ٱلْحِصَارِ وَٱلضِّيقَةِ ٱلَّتِي يُضَايِقُكَ بِهَا عَدُوُّكَ فِي جَمِيعِ أَبْوَابِكَ. ٥٥ 55
So he will not give to any of them the flesh of his own children that he is going to eat, because he will have nothing left for himself in the siege and in the distress which your enemy will put upon you within all your city gates.
وَٱلْمَرْأَةُ ٱلْمُتَنَعِّمَةُ فِيكَ وَٱلْمُتَرَفِّهَةُ ٱلَّتِي لَمْ تُجَرِّبْ أَنْ تَضَعَ أَسْفَلَ قَدَمِهَا عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ لِلتَّنَعُّمِ وَٱلتَّرَفُّهِ، تَبْخَلُ عَيْنُهَا عَلَى رَجُلِ حِضْنِهَا وَعَلَى ٱبْنِهَا وَبِنْتِهَا ٥٦ 56
The tender and delicate woman among you, who would not venture to put the bottom of her foot on the ground for delicateness and tenderness—she will be envious of her own dear husband, of her son, and of her daughter,
بِمَشِيمَتِهَا ٱلْخَارِجَةِ مِنْ بَيْنِ رِجْلَيْهَا وَبِأَوْلَادِهَا ٱلَّذِينَ تَلِدُهُمْ، لِأَنَّهَا تَأْكُلُهُمْ سِرًّا فِي عَوَزِ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ، فِي ٱلْحِصَارِ وَٱلضِّيقَةِ ٱلَّتِي يُضَايِقُكَ بِهَا عَدُوُّكَ فِي أَبْوَابِكَ. ٥٧ 57
and of her own newborn that comes out from between her legs, and of the children whom she will bear. She will eat them in private for lack of anything else, during the siege and in the distress which your enemy will put upon you within your city gates.
إِنْ لَمْ تَحْرِصْ لِتَعْمَلَ بِجَمِيعِ كَلِمَاتِ هَذَا ٱلنَّامُوسِ ٱلْمَكْتُوبَةِ فِي هَذَا ٱلسِّفْرِ، لِتَهَابَ هَذَا ٱلِٱسْمَ ٱلْجَلِيلَ ٱلْمَرْهُوبَ، ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكَ، ٥٨ 58
If you do not keep all the words of this law that are written in this book, so as to honor this glorious and fearful name, Yahweh your God,
يَجْعَلُ ٱلرَّبُّ ضَرَبَاتِكَ وَضَرَبَاتِ نَسْلِكَ عَجِيبَةً. ضَرَبَاتٍ عَظِيمَةً رَاسِخَةً، وَأَمْرَاضًا رَدِيَّةً ثَابِتَةً. ٥٩ 59
then Yahweh will make your plagues terrible, and those of your descendants; they will be great plagues, of long duration, and severe diseases, of long duration.
وَيَرُدُّ عَلَيْكَ جَمِيعَ أَدْوَاءِ مِصْرَ ٱلَّتِي فَزِعْتَ مِنْهَا، فَتَلْتَصِقُ بِكَ. ٦٠ 60
He will bring on you again all the diseases of Egypt that you were afraid of; they will cling to you.
أَيْضًا كُلُّ مَرَضٍ وَكُلُّ ضَرْبَةٍ لَمْ تُكْتَبْ فِي سِفْرِ ٱلنَّامُوسِ هَذَا، يُسَلِّطُهُ ٱلرَّبُّ عَلَيْكَ حَتَّى تَهْلِكَ. ٦١ 61
Also every sickness and plague that is not written in the book of this law, those also Yahweh will bring on you until you are destroyed.
فَتَبْقَوْنَ نَفَرًا قَلِيلًا عِوَضَ مَا كُنْتُمْ كَنُجُومِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ فِي ٱلْكَثْرَةِ، لِأَنَّكَ لَمْ تَسْمَعْ لِصَوْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكَ. ٦٢ 62
You will be left few in number, although you were like the stars of the heavens in number, because you did not listen to the voice of Yahweh your God.
وَكَمَا فَرِحَ ٱلرَّبُّ لَكُمْ لِيُحْسِنَ إِلَيْكُمْ وَيُكَثِّرَكُمْ، كَذَلِكَ يَفْرَحُ ٱلرَّبُّ لَكُمْ لِيُفْنِيَكُمْ وَيُهْلِكَكُمْ، فَتُسْتَأْصَلُونَ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي أَنْتَ دَاخِلٌ إِلَيْهَا لِتَمْتَلِكَهَا. ٦٣ 63
As Yahweh once rejoiced over you in doing you good, and in multiplying you, so he will rejoice over you in making you perish and in destroying you. You will be plucked off the land that you are going into to possess.
وَيُبَدِّدُكَ ٱلرَّبُّ فِي جَمِيعِ ٱلشُّعُوبِ مِنْ أَقْصَاءِ ٱلْأَرْضِ إِلَى أَقْصَائِهَا، وَتَعْبُدُ هُنَاكَ آلِهَةً أُخْرَى لَمْ تَعْرِفْهَا أَنْتَ وَلَا آبَاؤُكَ، مِنْ خَشَبٍ وَحَجَرٍ. ٦٤ 64
Yahweh will scatter you among all peoples from the one end of the earth to the other end of the earth; there you will worship other gods that you have not known, neither you nor your ancestors, gods of wood and stone.
وَفِي تِلْكَ ٱلْأُمَمِ لَا تَطْمَئِنُّ وَلَا يَكُونُ قَرَارٌ لِقَدَمِكَ، بَلْ يُعْطِيكَ ٱلرَّبُّ هُنَاكَ قَلْبًا مُرْتَجِفًا وَكَلَالَ ٱلْعَيْنَيْنِ وَذُبُولَ ٱلنَّفْسِ. ٦٥ 65
Among these nations will you find no ease, and there will be no rest for the bottoms of your feet; instead, Yahweh will give you there a trembling heart, failing eyes, and a soul that mourns.
وَتَكُونُ حَيَاتُكَ مُعَلَّقَةً قُدَّامَكَ، وَتَرْتَعِبُ لَيْلًا وَنَهَارًا وَلَا تَأْمَنُ عَلَى حَيَاتِكَ. ٦٦ 66
Your life will hang in doubt before you; you will fear every night and day and will have no certainty at all in your life.
فِي ٱلصَّبَاحِ تَقُولُ: يَا لَيْتَهُ ٱلْمَسَاءُ، وَفِي ٱلْمَسَاءِ تَقُولُ: يَا لَيْتَهُ ٱلصَّبَاحُ، مِنِ ٱرْتِعَابِ قَلْبِكَ ٱلَّذِي تَرْتَعِبُ، وَمِنْ مَنْظَرِ عَيْنَيْكَ ٱلَّذِي تَنْظُرُ. ٦٧ 67
In the morning you will say, 'I wish it were evening!' and in the evening you will say, 'I wish it were morning!' because of the fear in your hearts and the things your eyes will have to see.
وَيَرُدُّكَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَى مِصْرَ فِي سُفُنٍ فِي ٱلطَّرِيقِ ٱلَّتِي قُلْتُ لَكَ لَا تَعُدْ تَرَاهَا، فَتُبَاعُونَ هُنَاكَ لِأَعْدَائِكَ عَبِيدًا وَإِمَاءً، وَلَيْسَ مَنْ يَشْتَرِي». ٦٨ 68
Yahweh will bring you into Egypt again by ships, by the route about which I had said to you, 'You will not see Egypt again.' There you will offer yourselves for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one will purchase you.”
