اَلْخُرُوجُ 10

ثُمَّ قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «ٱدْخُلْ إِلَى فِرْعَوْنَ، فَإِنِّي أَغْلَظْتُ قَلْبَهُ وَقُلُوبَ عَبِيدِهِ لِكَيْ أَصْنَعَ آيَاتِي هَذِهِ بَيْنَهُمْ. ١ 1
Yahweh said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the hearts of his servants. I have done this to show these signs of my power among them.
وَلِكَيْ تُخْبِرَ فِي مَسَامِعِ ٱبْنِكَ وَٱبْنِ ٱبْنِكَ بِمَا فَعَلْتُهُ فِي مِصْرَ، وَبِآيَاتِي ٱلَّتِي صَنَعْتُهَا بَيْنَهُمْ، فَتَعْلَمُونَ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ». ٢ 2
I have also done this so that you may tell your children and grandchildren the things I have done, how I have harshly treated Egypt, and how I have given various signs of my power among them. In this way you will know that I am Yahweh.”
فَدَخَلَ مُوسَى وَهَارُونُ إِلَى فِرْعَوْنَ وَقَالَا لَهُ: «هَكَذَا يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ ٱلْعِبْرَانِيِّينَ: إِلَى مَتَى تَأْبَى أَنْ تَخْضَعَ لِي؟ أَطْلِقْ شَعْبِي لِيَعْبُدُونِي. ٣ 3
So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and said to him, “Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, says this: 'How long will you refuse to humble yourself before me? Let my people go so that they may worship me.
فَإِنَّهُ إِنْ كُنْتَ تَأْبَى أَنْ تُطْلِقَ شَعْبِي هَا أَنَا أَجِيءُ غَدًا بِجَرَادٍ عَلَى تُخُومِكَ، ٤ 4
But if you refuse to let my people go, listen, tomorrow I will bring locusts into your land.
فَيُغَطِّي وَجْهَ ٱلْأَرْضِ حَتَّى لَا يُسْتَطَاعَ نَظَرُ ٱلْأَرْضِ. وَيَأْكُلُ ٱلْفَضْلَةَ ٱلسَّالِمَةَ ٱلْبَاقِيَةَ لَكُمْ مِنَ ٱلْبَرَدِ. وَيَأْكُلُ جَمِيعَ ٱلشَّجَرِ ٱلنَّابِتِ لَكُمْ مِنَ ٱلْحَقْلِ. ٥ 5
They will cover the surface of the ground so that no one will be able to see the earth. They will eat the remains of whatever escaped from the hail. They will also eat every tree that grows for you in the fields.
وَيَمْلَأُ بُيُوتَكَ وَبُيُوتَ جَمِيعِ عَبِيدِكَ وَبُيُوتَ جَمِيعِ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّينَ، ٱلْأَمْرُ ٱلَّذِي لَمْ يَرَهُ آبَاؤُكَ وَلَا آبَاءُ آبَائِكَ مُنْذُ يَوْمَ وُجِدُوا عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ». ثُمَّ تَحَوَّلَ وَخَرَجَ مِنْ لَدُنْ فِرْعَوْنَ. ٦ 6
They will fill your houses, those of all your servants, and those of all the Egyptians—something neither your father nor your grandfather ever saw, nothing ever seen since the day that they were on the earth to this present day.'” Then Moses left and went out from Pharaoh.
فَقَالَ عَبِيدُ فِرْعَوْنَ لَهُ: «إِلَى مَتَى يَكُونُ هَذَا لَنَا فَخًّا؟ أَطْلِقِ ٱلرِّجَالَ لِيَعْبُدُوا ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَهُمْ. أَلَمْ تَعْلَمْ بَعْدُ أَنَّ مِصْرَ قَدْ خَرِبَتْ؟». ٧ 7
Pharaoh's servants said to him, “How long will this man be a menace to us? Let the Israelites go so that they may worship Yahweh their God. Do you not yet realize that Egypt is destroyed?”
فَرُدَّ مُوسَى وَهَارُونُ إِلَى فِرْعَوْنَ، فَقَالَ لَهُمَا: «ٱذْهَبُوا ٱعْبُدُوا ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكُمْ. وَلَكِنْ مَنْ وَمَنْ هُمُ ٱلَّذِينَ يَذْهَبُونَ؟» ٨ 8
Moses and Aaron were brought again to Pharaoh, who said to them, “Go worship Yahweh your God. But what people will go?”
فَقَالَ مُوسَى: «نَذْهَبُ بِفِتْيَانِنَا وَشُيُوخِنَا. نَذْهَبُ بِبَنِينَا وَبَنَاتِنَا، بِغَنَمِنَا وَبَقَرِنَا، لِأَنَّ لَنَا عِيدًا لِلرَّبِّ». ٩ 9
Moses said, “We will go with our young and with our old, with our sons and our daughters. We will go with our flocks and herds, for we must hold a festival for Yahweh.”
فَقَالَ لَهُمَا: «يَكُونُ ٱلرَّبُّ مَعَكُمْ هَكَذَا كَمَا أُطْلِقُكُمْ وَأَوْلَادَكُمُ. ٱنْظُرُوا، إِنَّ قُدَّامَ وُجُوهِكُمْ شَرًّا. ١٠ 10
Pharaoh said to them, “May Yahweh indeed be with you, if I ever let you go and your little ones go. Look, you have some evil in mind.
لَيْسَ هَكَذَا. اِذْهَبُوا أَنْتُمُ ٱلرِّجَالَ وَٱعْبُدُوا ٱلرَّبَّ. لِأَنَّكُمْ لِهَذَا طَالِبُونَ». فَطُرِدَا مِنْ لَدُنْ فِرْعَوْنَ. ١١ 11
No! Go, just the men among you, and worship Yahweh, for that is what you want.” Then Moses and Aaron were driven out from Pharaoh's presence.
ثُمَّ قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «مُدَّ يَدَكَ عَلَى أَرْضِ مِصْرَ لِأَجْلِ ٱلْجَرَادِ، لِيَصْعَدَ عَلَى أَرْضِ مِصْرَ وَيَأْكُلَ كُلَّ عُشْبِ ٱلْأَرْضِ، كُلَّ مَا تَرَكَهُ ٱلْبَرَدُ». ١٢ 12
Then Yahweh said to Moses, “Reach out with your hand over the land of Egypt to the locusts, that they may attack the land of Egypt and eat every plant in it, everything that the hail has left.”
فَمَدَّ مُوسَى عَصَاهُ عَلَى أَرْضِ مِصْرَ، فَجَلَبَ ٱلرَّبُّ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ رِيحًا شَرْقِيَّةً كُلَّ ذَلِكَ ٱلنَّهَارِ وَكُلَّ ٱللَّيْلِ. وَلَمَّا كَانَ ٱلصَّبَاحُ، حَمَلَتِ ٱلرِّيحُ ٱلشَّرْقِيَّةُ ٱلْجَرَادَ، ١٣ 13
Moses reached out with his staff over the land of Egypt, and Yahweh brought an east wind over the land all that day and night. When it was morning, the east wind had brought the locusts.
فَصَعِدَ ٱلْجَرَادُ عَلَى كُلِّ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ، وَحَلَّ فِي جَمِيعِ تُخُومِ مِصْرَ. شَيْءٌ ثَقِيلٌ جِدًّا لَمْ يَكُنْ قَبْلَهُ جَرَادٌ هَكَذَا مِثْلَهُ، وَلَا يَكُونُ بَعْدَهُ كَذَلِكَ، ١٤ 14
The locusts went through all the land of Egypt and infested all parts of it. Never before had there been such a swarm of locusts in the land, and nothing like this will come after it.
وَغَطَّى وَجْهَ كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ حَتَّى أَظْلَمَتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ. وَأَكَلَ جَمِيعَ عُشْبِ ٱلْأَرْضِ وَجَمِيعَ ثَمَرِ ٱلشَّجَرِ ٱلَّذِي تَرَكَهُ ٱلْبَرَدُ، حَتَّى لَمْ يَبْقَ شَيْءٌ أَخْضَرُ فِي ٱلشَّجَرِ وَلَا فِي عُشْبِ ٱلْحَقْلِ فِي كُلِّ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ». ١٥ 15
They covered the surface of the whole land so that it was darkened. They ate every plant in the land and all the fruit of the trees that the hail had left. Throughout all the land of Egypt, no living green plant remained, nor any tree or plant in the fields.
فَدَعَا فِرْعَوْنُ مُوسَى وَهَارُونَ مُسْرِعًا وَقَالَ: «أَخْطَأْتُ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمَا وَإِلَيْكُمَا. ١٦ 16
Then Pharaoh quickly summoned Moses and Aaron and said, “I have sinned against Yahweh your God and against you.
وَٱلْآنَ ٱصْفَحَا عَنْ خَطِيَّتِي هَذِهِ ٱلْمَرَّةَ فَقَطْ، وَصَلِّيَا إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمَا لِيَرْفَعَ عَنِّي هَذَا ٱلْمَوْتَ فَقَطْ». ١٧ 17
Now then, forgive my sin this time, and pray to Yahweh your God that he will take this death away from me.”
فَخَرَجَ مُوسَى مِنْ لَدُنْ فِرْعَوْنَ وَصَلَّى إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ. ١٨ 18
So Moses went out from Pharaoh and prayed to Yahweh.
فَرَدَّ ٱلرَّبُّ رِيحًا غَرْبِيَّةً شَدِيدَةً جِدًّا، فَحَمَلَتِ ٱلْجَرَادَ وَطَرَحَتْهُ إِلَى بَحْرِ سُوفَ. لَمْ تَبْقَ جَرَادَةٌ وَاحِدَةٌ فِي كُلِّ تُخُومِ مِصْرَ. ١٩ 19
Yahweh brought a very strong west wind that picked up the locusts and drove them into the Sea of Reeds; not a single locust remained in all the territory of Egypt.
وَلَكِنْ شَدَّدَ ٱلرَّبُّ قَلْبَ فِرْعَوْنَ فَلَمْ يُطْلِقْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٢٠ 20
But Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and Pharaoh did not let the Israelites go.
ثُمَّ قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «مُدَّ يَدَكَ نَحْوَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ لِيَكُونَ ظَلَامٌ عَلَى أَرْضِ مِصْرَ، حَتَّى يُلْمَسُ ٱلظَّلَامُ». ٢١ 21
Then Yahweh said to Moses, “Reach out with your hand toward the sky, so that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, darkness that may be felt.”
فَمَدَّ مُوسَى يَدَهُ نَحْوَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ فَكَانَ ظَلَامٌ دَامِسٌ فِي كُلِّ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ ثَلَاثَةَ أَيَّامٍ. ٢٢ 22
Moses reached out with his hand toward the sky, and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt for three days.
لَمْ يُبْصِرْ أَحَدٌ أَخَاهُ، وَلَا قَامَ أَحَدٌ مِنْ مَكَانِهِ ثَلَاثَةَ أَيَّامٍ. وَلَكِنْ جَمِيعُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ كَانَ لَهُمْ نُورٌ فِي مَسَاكِنِهِمْ. ٢٣ 23
No one could see anyone else; no one left his home for three days. However, all the Israelites had light in the place where they lived.
فَدَعَا فِرْعَوْنُ مُوسَى وَقَالَ: «ٱذْهَبُوا ٱعْبُدُوا ٱلرَّبَّ. غَيْرَ أَنَّ غَنَمَكُمْ وَبَقَرَكُمْ تَبْقَى. أَوْلَادُكُمْ أَيْضًا تَذْهَبُ مَعَكُمْ». ٢٤ 24
Pharaoh summoned Moses and said, “Go worship Yahweh. Even your families may go with you, but your flocks and herds must remain behind.”
فَقَالَ مُوسَى: «أَنْتَ تُعْطِي أَيْضًا فِي أَيْدِينَا ذَبَائِحَ وَمُحْرَقَاتٍ لِنَصْنَعَهَا لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِنَا، ٢٥ 25
But Moses said, “You must also give us animals for sacrifices and burnt offerings so that we may sacrifice them to Yahweh our God.
فَتَذْهَبُ مَوَاشِينَا أَيْضًا مَعَنَا. لَا يَبْقَى ظِلْفٌ. لِأَنَّنَا مِنْهَا نَأْخُذُ لِعِبَادَةِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِنَا. وَنَحْنُ لَا نَعْرِفُ بِمَاذَا نَعْبُدُ ٱلرَّبَّ حَتَّى نَأْتِيَ إِلَى هُنَاكَ». ٢٦ 26
Our cattle must also go with us; not a hoof of them may be left behind, for we must take them to worship Yahweh our God. For we do not know with what we must worship Yahweh until we arrive there.”
وَلَكِنْ شَدَّدَ ٱلرَّبُّ قَلْبَ فِرْعَوْنَ فَلَمْ يَشَأْ أَنْ يُطْلِقَهُمْ. ٢٧ 27
But Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let them go.
وَقَالَ لَهُ فِرْعَوْنُ: «ٱذْهَبْ عَنِّي. اِحْتَرِزْ. لَا تَرَ وَجْهِي أَيْضًا. إِنَّكَ يَوْمَ تَرَى وَجْهِي تَمُوتُ». ٢٨ 28
Pharaoh said to Moses, “Go from me! Be careful about one thing, that you do not see me again, for on the day you see my face, you will die.”
فَقَالَ مُوسَى: «نِعِمَّا قُلْتَ. أَنَا لَا أَعُودُ أَرَى وَجْهَكَ أَيْضًا». ٢٩ 29
Moses said, “You yourself have spoken. I will not see your face again.”
