اَلْخُرُوجُ 11

ثُمَّ قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «ضَرْبَةً وَاحِدَةً أَيْضًا أَجْلِبُ عَلَى فِرْعَوْنَ وَعَلَى مِصْرَ. بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ يُطْلِقُكُمْ مِنْ هُنَا. وَعِنْدَمَا يُطْلِقُكُمْ يَطْرُدُكُمْ طَرْدًا مِنْ هُنَا بِٱلتَّمَامِ. ١ 1
Then Yahweh said to Moses, “There is still one more plague that I will bring on Pharaoh and Egypt. After that, he will let you go from here. When he finally lets you go, he will drive you away completely.
تَكَلَّمْ فِي مَسَامِعِ ٱلشَّعْبِ أَنْ يَطْلُبَ كُلُّ رَجُلٍ مِنْ صَاحِبِهِ، وَكُلُّ ٱمْرَأَةٍ مِنْ صَاحِبَتِهَا أَمْتِعَةَ فِضَّةٍ وَأَمْتِعَةَ ذَهَبٍ». ٢ 2
Instruct the people that every man and woman is to ask of his or her neighbor for articles of silver and articles of gold.”
وَأَعْطَى ٱلرَّبُّ نِعْمَةً لِلشَّعْبِ فِي عُيُونِ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّينَ. وَأَيْضًا ٱلرَّجُلُ مُوسَى كَانَ عَظِيمًا جِدًّا فِي أَرْضِ مِصْرَ فِي عُيُونِ عَبِيدِ فِرْعَوْنَ وَعُيُونِ ٱلشَّعْبِ. ٣ 3
Now Yahweh had made the Egyptians eager to please the Israelites. Moreover, the man Moses was very impressive in the sight of Pharaoh's servants and the people of Egypt.
وَقَالَ مُوسَى: «هَكَذَا يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ: إِنِّي نَحْوَ نِصْفِ ٱللَّيْلِ أَخْرُجُ فِي وَسَطِ مِصْرَ، ٤ 4
Moses said, “Yahweh says this: 'About midnight I will go throughout Egypt.
فَيَمُوتُ كُلُّ بِكْرٍ فِي أَرْضِ مِصْرَ، مِنْ بِكْرِ فِرْعَوْنَ ٱلْجَالِسِ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّهِ إِلَى بِكْرِ ٱلْجَارِيَةِ ٱلَّتِي خَلْفَ ٱلرَّحَى، وَكُلُّ بِكْرِ بَهِيمَةٍ. ٥ 5
All the firstborn in the land of Egypt will die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh, who sits on his throne, to the firstborn of the slave girl who is behind the handmill grinding it, and to all the firstborn of the cattle.
وَيَكُونُ صُرَاخٌ عَظِيمٌ فِي كُلِّ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ لَمْ يَكُنْ مِثْلُهُ وَلَا يَكُونُ مِثْلُهُ أَيْضًا. ٦ 6
Then there will be a great wailing throughout all the land of Egypt, such as has never been nor ever will be again.
وَلَكِنْ جَمِيعُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ لَا يُسَنِّنُ كَلْبٌ لِسَانَهُ إِلَيْهِمْ، لَا إِلَى ٱلنَّاسِ وَلَا إِلَى ٱلْبَهَائِمِ. لِكَيْ تَعْلَمُوا أَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ يُمَيِّزُ بَيْنَ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّينَ وَإِسْرَائِيلَ. ٧ 7
But not even a dog will bark against any of the people of Israel, against either man or beast. In this way you will know that I am treating the Egyptians and the Israelites differently.'
فَيَنْزِلُ إِلَيَّ جَمِيعُ عَبِيدِكَ هَؤُلَاءِ، وَيَسْجُدُونَ لِي قَائِلِينَ: ٱخْرُجْ أَنْتَ وَجَمِيعُ ٱلشَّعْبِ ٱلَّذِينَ فِي أَثَرِكَ. وَبَعْدَ ذَلِكَ أَخْرُجُ». ثُمَّ خَرَجَ مِنْ لَدُنْ فِرْعَوْنَ فِي حُمُوِّ ٱلْغَضَبِ. ٨ 8
All these servants of yours, Pharaoh, will come down to me and bow down to me. They will say, 'Go, you and all the people who follow you!' After that I will go out.” Then he went out from Pharaoh in great anger.
وَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «لَا يَسْمَعُ لَكُمَا فِرْعَوْنُ لِكَيْ تَكْثُرَ عَجَائِبِي فِي أَرْضِ مِصْرَ». ٩ 9
Yahweh said to Moses, “Pharaoh will not listen to you. This is so that I will do many amazing things in the land of Egypt.”
وَكَانَ مُوسَى وَهَارُونُ يَفْعَلَانِ كُلَّ هَذِهِ ٱلْعَجَائِبِ أَمَامَ فِرْعَوْنَ، وَلَكِنْ شَدَّدَ ٱلرَّبُّ قَلْبَ فِرْعَوْنَ، فَلَمْ يُطْلِقْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ أَرْضِهِ. ١٠ 10
Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh. But Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and Pharaoh did not let the people of Israel go out of his land.
