اَلتَّثْنِيَة 3

«ثُمَّ تَحَوَّلْنَا وَصَعِدْنَا فِي طَرِيقِ بَاشَانَ، فَخَرَجَ عُوجُ مَلِكُ بَاشَانَ لِلِقَائِنَا هُوَ وَجَمِيعُ قَوْمِهِ لِلْحَرْبِ فِي إِذْرَعِي. ١ 1
Then we turned and went up the way to Bashan. Og, the king of Bashan, came and attacked us, he and all his people, to fight at Edrei.
فَقَالَ لِي ٱلرَّبُّ: لَا تَخَفْ مِنْهُ، لِأَنِّي قَدْ دَفَعْتُهُ إِلَى يَدِكَ وَجَمِيعَ قَوْمِهِ وَأَرْضِهِ، فَتَفْعَلُ بِهِ كَمَا فَعَلْتَ بِسِيحُونَ مَلِكِ ٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ ٱلَّذِي كَانَ سَاكِنًا فِي حَشْبُونَ. ٢ 2
Yahweh said to me, 'Do not fear him; for I have given you victory over him and have put all his people and his land under your control. You will do to him as you did to Sihon, king of the Amorites, who lived at Heshbon.'
فَدَفَعَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُنَا إِلَى أَيْدِينَا عُوجَ أَيْضًا مَلِكَ بَاشَانَ وَجَمِيعَ قَوْمِهِ، فَضَرَبْنَاهُ حَتَّى لَمْ يَبْقَ لَهُ شَارِدٌ. ٣ 3
So Yahweh our God also gave us victory over Og the king of Bashan, and all his people were put under our control. We struck them down until not one of his people remained.
وَأَخَذْنَا كُلَّ مُدُنِهِ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْوَقْتِ. لَمْ تَكُنْ قَرْيَةٌ لَمْ نَأْخُذْهَا مِنْهُمْ. سِتُّونَ مَدِينَةً، كُلُّ كُورَةِ أَرْجُوبَ مَمْلَكَةُ عُوجٍ فِي بَاشَانَ. ٤ 4
We took all his cities at that time. There was not one of the sixty cities that we did not take from them—all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
كُلُّ هَذِهِ كَانَتْ مُدُنًا مُحَصَّنَةً بِأَسْوَارٍ شَامِخَةٍ، وَأَبْوَابٍ وَمَزَالِيجَ. سِوَى قُرَى ٱلصَّحْرَاءِ ٱلْكَثِيرَةِ جِدًّا. ٥ 5
These were all cities fortified with high walls, gates, and bars; this was besides very many unwalled villages.
فَحَرَّمْنَاهَا كَمَا فَعَلْنَا بِسِيحُونَ مَلِكِ حَشْبُونَ، مُحَرِّمِينَ كُلَّ مَدِينَةٍ: ٱلرِّجَالَ وَٱلنِّسَاءَ وَٱلْأَطْفَالَ. ٦ 6
We completely destroyed them, as we did to Sihon king of Heshbon, completely destroying every city—men and the women and the little ones.
لَكِنَّ كُلَّ ٱلْبَهَائِمِ وَغَنِيمَةِ ٱلْمُدُنِ نَهَبْنَاهَا لِأَنْفُسِنَا. ٧ 7
But all the cattle and the spoil of the cities, we took as spoils for ourselves.
وَأَخَذْنَا فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْوَقْتِ مِنْ يَدِ مَلِكَيِ ٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ ٱلْأَرْضَ ٱلَّتِي فِي عَبْرِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ، مِنْ وَادِي أَرْنُونَ إِلَى جَبَلِ حَرْمُونَ. ٨ 8
At that time we took the land out of the hand of the two kings of the Amorites, who were beyond the Jordan, from the Valley of the Arnon to Mount Hermon
وَٱلصَّيْدُونِيُّونَ يَدْعُونَ حَرْمُونَ سِرْيُونَ، وَٱلْأَمُورِيُّونَ يَدْعُونَهُ سَنِيرَ. ٩ 9
(Mount Hermon the Sidonians call Sirion, and the Amorites call it Senir)
كُلَّ مُدُنِ ٱلسَّهْلِ وَكُلَّ جِلْعَادَ وَكُلَّ بَاشَانَ إِلَى سَلْخَةَ وَإِذْرَعِي مَدِينَتَيْ مَمْلَكَةِ عُوجٍ فِي بَاشَانَ. ١٠ 10
and all the cities of the plain, all Gilead, and all Bashan, all the way to Salekah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.”
إِنَّ عُوجَ مَلِكَ بَاشَانَ وَحْدَهُ بَقِيَ مِنْ بَقِيَّةِ ٱلرَّفَائِيِّينَ. هُوَذَا سَرِيرُهُ سَرِيرٌ مِنْ حَدِيدٍ. أَلَيْسَ هُوَ فِي رَبَّةِ بَنِي عَمُّونَ؟ طُولُهُ تِسْعُ أَذْرُعٍ، وَعَرْضُهُ أَرْبَعُ أَذْرُعٍ بِذِرَاعِ رَجُلٍ. ١١ 11
(For of the remnant of the Rephaim, only Og king of Bashan had remained. Look! His bed was a bed of iron. Was it not in Rabbah, where the descendants of Ammon live? It was nine cubits long and four cubits wide, the way people measure.)
«فَهَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضُ ٱمْتَلَكْنَاهَا فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْوَقْتِ مِنْ عَرُوعِيرَ ٱلَّتِي عَلَى وَادِي أَرْنُونَ، وَنِصْفَ جَبَلِ جِلْعَادَ وَمُدُنَهُ أَعْطَيْتُ لِلرَّأُوبَيْنِيِّينَ وَٱلْجَادِيِّينَ. ١٢ 12
“This land that we took in possession at that time—from Aroer, that is by the Valley of the Arnon, and half the hill country of Gilead, and its cities—I gave to the Reubenites and to the Gadites.
وَبَقِيَّةَ جِلْعَادَ وَكُلَّ بَاشَانَ مَمْلَكَةَ عُوجٍ أَعْطَيْتُ لِنِصْفِ سِبْطِ مَنَسَّى. كُلَّ كُورَةِ أَرْجُوبَ مَعَ كُلِّ بَاشَانَ. وَهِيَ تُدْعَى أَرْضَ ٱلرَّفَائِيِّينَ. ١٣ 13
The rest of Gilead and all Bashan, the kingdom of Og, I gave to the half tribe of Manasseh. (All the region of Argob, and all Bashan. The same territory is called the land of Rephaim.
يَائِيرُ ٱبْنُ مَنَسَّى أَخَذَ كُلَّ كُورَةِ أَرْجُوبَ إِلَى تُخْمِ ٱلْجَشُورِيِّينَ وَٱلْمَعْكِيِّينَ، وَدَعَاهَا عَلَى ٱسْمِهِ بَاشَانَ «حَوُّوثِ يَائِيرَ» إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ. ١٤ 14
Jair, a descendant of Manasseh, took all the region of Argob to the border of the Geshurites and the Maakathites. He called the region, even Bashan, by his own name, Havvoth Jair, to this day.)
وَلِمَاكِيرَ أَعْطَيْتُ جِلْعَادَ. ١٥ 15
I gave Gilead to Machir.
وَلِلرَّأُوبَيْنِيِّينَ وَٱلْجَادِيِّينَ أَعْطَيْتُ مِنْ جِلْعَادَ إِلَى وَادِي أَرْنُونَ وَسَطَ ٱلْوَادِي تُخْمًا، وَإِلَى وَادِي يَبُّوقَ تُخْمِ بَنِي عَمُّونَ. ١٦ 16
To the Reubenites and to the Gadites I gave territory from Gilead to the Valley of the Arnon—the middle of the valley is the territory's border—and to the Jabbok River, which is the border with the descendants of Ammon.
وَٱلْعَرَبَةَ وَٱلْأُرْدُنَّ تُخْمًا مِنْ كِنَّارَةَ إِلَى بَحْرِ ٱلْعَرَبَةِ، بَحْرِ ٱلْمِلْحِ، تَحْتَ سُفُوحِ ٱلْفِسْجَةِ نَحْوَ ٱلشَّرْقِ. ١٧ 17
Another of its borders is also the plain of the Jordan River valley, from Kinnereth to the Sea of the Arabah (that is, the Salt Sea) to the slopes of Mount Pisgah eastward.
«وَأَمَرْتُكُمْ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْوَقْتِ قَائِلًا: ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكُمْ قَدْ أَعْطَاكُمْ هَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضَ لِتَمْتَلِكُوهَا. مُتَجَرِّدِينَ تَعْبُرُونَ أَمَامَ إِخْوَتِكُمْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، كُلُّ ذَوِي بَأْسٍ. ١٨ 18
I commanded you at that time, saying, 'Yahweh your God has given you this land to possess it; you, all the men of war, will pass over armed before your brothers, the people of Israel.
أَمَّا نِسَاؤُكُمْ وَأَطْفَالُكُمْ وَمَوَاشِيكُمْ، قَدْ عَرَفْتُ أَنَّ لَكُمْ مَوَاشِيَ كَثِيرَةً، فَتَمْكُثُ فِي مُدُنِكُمُ ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَيْتُكُمْ، ١٩ 19
But your wives, your little ones, and your cattle (I know that you have much cattle), will stay in your cities that I have given you,
حَتَّى يُرِيحَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِخْوَتَكُمْ مِثْلَكُمْ وَيَمْتَلِكُوا هُمْ أَيْضًا ٱلْأَرْضَ ٱلَّتِي ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكُمْ يُعْطِيهِمْ فِي عَبْرِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ. ثُمَّ تَرْجِعُونَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ إِلَى مُلْكِهِ ٱلَّذِي أَعْطَيْتُكُمْ. ٢٠ 20
until Yahweh gives rest to your brothers, as he has to you, until they also possess the land that Yahweh your God is giving them beyond the Jordan; then will you return, every man of you, to your own property that I have given you.'
وَأَمَرْتُ يَشُوعَ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْوَقْتِ قَائِلًا: عَيْنَاكَ قَدْ أَبْصَرَتَا كُلَّ مَا فَعَلَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكُمْ بِهَذَيْنِ ٱلْمَلِكَيْنِ. هَكَذَا يَفْعَلُ ٱلرَّبُّ بِجَمِيعِ ٱلْمَمَالِكِ ٱلَّتِي أَنْتَ عَابِرٌ إِلَيْهَا. ٢١ 21
I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, 'Your eyes have seen all that Yahweh your God has done to these two kings; Yahweh will do the same to all the kingdoms where you go over.
لَا تَخَافُوا مِنْهُمْ، لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكُمْ هُوَ ٱلْمُحَارِبُ عَنْكُمْ. ٢٢ 22
You will not fear them, for Yahweh your God is the one who will fight for you.'
«وَتَضَرَّعْتُ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْوَقْتِ قَائِلًا: ٢٣ 23
I implored Yahweh at that time, saying,
يَا سَيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ، أَنْتَ قَدِ ٱبْتَدَأْتَ تُرِي عَبْدَكَ عَظَمَتَكَ وَيَدَكَ ٱلشَّدِيدَةَ. فَإِنَّهُ أَيُّ إِلَهٍ فِي ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَعَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ يَعْمَلُ كَأَعْمَالِكَ وَكَجَبَرُوتِكَ؟ ٢٤ 24
'O Lord Yahweh, you have begun to show your servant your greatness and your strong hand; for what god is there in heaven or in earth that can do the same works as you have done, and the same mighty acts?
دَعْنِي أَعْبُرْ وَأَرَى ٱلْأَرْضَ ٱلْجَيِّدَةَ ٱلَّتِي فِي عَبْرِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ، هَذَا ٱلْجَبَلَ ٱلْجَيِّدَ وَلُبْنَانَ. ٢٥ 25
Let me go over, I beg you, and see the good land that is beyond the Jordan, that good hill country, and also Lebanon.'
لَكِنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ غَضِبَ عَلَيَّ بِسَبَبِكُمْ وَلَمْ يَسْمَعْ لِي، بَلْ قَالَ لِي ٱلرَّبُّ: كَفَاكَ! لَا تَعُدْ تُكَلِّمُنِي أَيْضًا فِي هَذَا ٱلْأَمْرِ. ٢٦ 26
But Yahweh was angry with me because of you; he did not listen to me. Yahweh said to me, 'Let this be enough for you—speak no more to me about this matter:
ٱصْعَدْ إِلَى رَأْسِ ٱلْفِسْجَةِ وَٱرْفَعْ عَيْنَيْكَ إِلَى ٱلْغَرْبِ وَٱلشِّمَالِ وَٱلْجَنُوبِ وَٱلشَّرْقِ، وَٱنْظُرْ بِعَيْنَيْكَ، لَكِنْ لَا تَعْبُرُ هَذَا ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ. ٢٧ 27
go up to the top of Pisgah and lift up your eyes westward, northward, southward, and eastward; look with your eyes, for you will not go over the Jordan.
وَأَمَّا يَشُوعُ فَأَوْصِهِ وَشَدِّدْهُ وَشَجِّعْهُ، لِأَنَّهُ هُوَ يَعْبُرُ أَمَامَ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبِ، وَهُوَ يَقْسِمُ لَهُمُ ٱلْأَرْضَ ٱلَّتِي تَرَاهَا. ٢٨ 28
Instead, instruct Joshua and encourage and strengthen him, for he will go over before this people, and he will cause them to inherit the land that you will see.'
فَمَكَثْنَا فِي ٱلْجِوَاءِ مُقَابِلَ بَيْتِ فَغُورَ. ٢٩ 29
So we stayed in the valley opposite Beth Peor.
