اَلْخُرُوجُ 2

وَذَهَبَ رَجُلٌ مِنْ بَيْتِ لَاوِي وَأَخَذَ بِنْتَ لَاوِي، ١ 1
Now a man of the tribe of Levi married a woman of Levi.
فَحَبِلَتِ ٱلْمَرْأَةُ وَوَلَدَتِ ٱبْنًا. وَلَمَّا رَأَتْهُ أَنَّهُ حَسَنٌ، خَبَّأَتْهُ ثَلَاثَةَ أَشْهُرٍ. ٢ 2
The woman became pregnant and gave birth to a son. When she saw that he was a healthy boy, she hid him for three months.
وَلَمَّا لَمْ يُمْكِنْهَا أَنْ تُخَبِّئَهُ بَعْدُ، أَخَذَتْ لَهُ سَفَطًا مِنَ ٱلْبَرْدِيِّ وَطَلَتْهُ بِٱلْحُمَرِ وَٱلزِّفْتِ، وَوَضَعَتِ ٱلْوَلَدَ فِيهِ، وَوَضَعَتْهُ بَيْنَ ٱلْحَلْفَاءِ عَلَى حَافَةِ ٱلنَّهْرِ. ٣ 3
But when she could no longer hide him, she took a papyrus basket and sealed it with bitumen and pitch. Then she put the child in it and placed it among the reeds in the water along the side of the river.
وَوَقَفَتْ أُخْتُهُ مِنْ بَعِيدٍ لِتَعْرِفَ مَاذَا يُفْعَلُ بِهِ. ٤ 4
His sister stood at a distance to see what would happen to him.
فَنَزَلَتِ ٱبْنَةُ فِرْعَوْنَ إِلَى ٱلنَّهْرِ لِتَغْتَسِلَ، وَكَانَتْ جَوَارِيهَا مَاشِيَاتٍ عَلَى جَانِبِ ٱلنَّهْرِ. فَرَأَتِ ٱلسَّفَطَ بَيْنَ ٱلْحَلْفَاءِ، فَأَرْسَلَتْ أَمَتَهَا وَأَخَذَتْهُ. ٥ 5
Pharaoh's daughter came down to bathe at the river while her attendants walked along by the riverside. She saw the basket among the reeds and sent her attendant to get it.
وَلَمَّا فَتَحَتْهُ رَأَتِ ٱلْوَلَدَ، وَإِذَا هُوَ صَبِيٌّ يَبْكِي. فَرَقَّتْ لَهُ وَقَالَتْ: «هَذَا مِنْ أَوْلَادِ ٱلْعِبْرَانِيِّينَ». ٦ 6
When she opened it, she saw the child. Behold, the baby was crying. She had compassion on him and said, “This is certainly one of the Hebrews' children.”
فَقَالَتْ أُخْتُهُ لِٱبْنَةِ فِرْعَوْنَ: «هَلْ أَذْهَبُ وَأَدْعُو لَكِ ٱمْرَأَةً مُرْضِعَةً مِنَ ٱلْعِبْرَانِيَّاتِ لِتُرْضِعَ لَكِ ٱلْوَلَدَ؟» ٧ 7
Then the baby's sister said to Pharaoh's daughter, “Should I go and find you a Hebrew woman to nurse the child for you?”
فَقَالَتْ لَهَا ٱبْنَةُ فِرْعَوْنَ: «ٱذْهَبِي». فَذَهَبَتِ ٱلْفَتَاةُ وَدَعَتْ أُمَّ ٱلْوَلَدِ. ٨ 8
Pharaoh's daughter said to her, “Go.” So the young girl went and got the child's mother.
فَقَالَتْ لَهَا ٱبْنَةُ فِرْعَوْنَ: «ٱذْهَبِي بِهَذَا ٱلْوَلَدِ وَأَرْضِعِيهِ لِي وَأَنَا أُعْطِي أُجْرَتَكِ». فَأَخَذَتِ ٱلْمَرْأَةُ ٱلْوَلَدَ وَأَرْضَعَتْهُ. ٩ 9
Pharaoh's daughter said to the baby's mother, “Take this child and nurse him for me, and I will pay you wages.” So the woman took the child and nursed him.
وَلَمَّا كَبِرَ ٱلْوَلَدُ جَاءَتْ بِهِ إِلَى ٱبْنَةِ فِرْعَوْنَ فَصَارَ لَهَا ٱبْنًا، وَدَعَتِ ٱسْمَهُ «مُوسَى» وَقَالَتْ: «إِنِّي ٱنْتَشَلْتُهُ مِنَ ٱلْمَاءِ». ١٠ 10
When the child grew older, she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. She named him Moses and said, “Because I drew him from the water.”
وَحَدَثَ فِي تِلْكَ ٱلْأَيَّامِ لَمَّا كَبِرَ مُوسَى أَنَّهُ خَرَجَ إِلَى إِخْوَتِهِ لِيَنْظُرَ فِي أَثْقَالِهِمْ، فَرَأَى رَجُلًا مِصْرِيًّا يَضْرِبُ رَجُلًا عِبْرَانِيًّا مِنْ إِخْوَتِهِ، ١١ 11
When Moses had grown up, he went out to his people and observed their hard work. He saw an Egyptian striking a Hebrew, one of his own people.
فَٱلْتَفَتَ إِلَى هُنَا وَهُنَاكَ وَرَأَى أَنْ لَيْسَ أَحَدٌ، فَقَتَلَ ٱلْمِصْرِيَّ وَطَمَرَهُ فِي ٱلرَّمْلِ. ١٢ 12
He looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no one there, he killed the Egyptian and hid his body in the sand.
ثُمَّ خَرَجَ فِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلثَّانِي وَإِذَا رَجُلَانِ عِبْرَانِيَّانِ يَتَخَاصَمَانِ، فَقَالَ لِلْمُذْنِبِ: «لِمَاذَا تَضْرِبُ صَاحِبَكَ؟» ١٣ 13
He went out the next day, and, behold, two Hebrew men were fighting. He said to the one who was in the wrong, “Why are you hitting your companion?”
فَقَالَ: «مَنْ جَعَلَكَ رَئِيسًا وَقَاضِيًا عَلَيْنَا؟ أَمُفْتَكِرٌ أَنْتَ بِقَتْلِي كَمَا قَتَلْتَ ٱلْمِصْرِيَّ؟». فَخَافَ مُوسَى وَقَالَ: «حَقًّا قَدْ عُرِفَ ٱلْأَمْرُ». ١٤ 14
But the man said, “Who made you a leader and judge over us? Are you planning to kill me as you killed that Egyptian?” Then Moses became afraid and said, “What I did has certainly become known to others.”
فَسَمِعَ فِرْعَوْنُ هَذَا ٱلْأَمْرَ، فَطَلَبَ أَنْ يَقْتُلَ مُوسَى. فَهَرَبَ مُوسَى مِنْ وَجْهِ فِرْعَوْنَ وَسَكَنَ فِي أَرْضِ مِدْيَانَ، وَجَلَسَ عِنْدَ ٱلْبِئْرِ. ١٥ 15
Now when Pharaoh heard about it, he tried to kill Moses. But Moses fled from Pharaoh and stayed in the land of Midian. There he sat down by a well.
وَكَانَ لِكَاهِنِ مِدْيَانَ سَبْعُ بَنَاتٍ، فَأَتَيْنَ وَٱسْتَقَيْنَ وَمَلَأْنَ ٱلْأَجْرَانَ لِيَسْقِينَ غَنَمَ أَبِيهِنَّ. ١٦ 16
Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters. They came, drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father's flock.
فَأَتَى ٱلرُّعَاةُ وَطَرَدُوهُنَّ. فَنَهَضَ مُوسَى وَأَنْجَدَهُنَّ وَسَقَى غَنَمَهُنَّ. ١٧ 17
The shepherds came and tried to drive them away, but Moses went and helped them. Then he watered their flock.
فَلَمَّا أَتَيْنَ إِلَى رَعُوئِيلَ أَبِيهِنَّ قَالَ: «مَا بَالُكُنَّ أَسْرَعْتُنَّ فِي ٱلْمَجِيءِ ٱلْيَوْمَ؟» ١٨ 18
When the girls went to Reuel their father, he said, “Why are you home so early today?”
فَقُلْنَ: «رَجُلٌ مِصْرِيٌّ أَنْقَذَنَا مِنْ أَيْدِي ٱلرُّعَاةِ، وَإِنَّهُ ٱسْتَقَى لَنَا أَيْضًا وَسَقَى ٱلْغَنَمَ». ١٩ 19
They said, “An Egyptian rescued us from the shepherds. He even drew water for us and watered the flock.”
فَقَالَ لِبَنَاتِهِ: «وَأَيْنَ هُوَ؟ لِمَاذَا تَرَكْتُنَّ ٱلرَّجُلَ؟ ٱدْعُونَهُ لِيَأْكُلَ طَعَامًا». ٢٠ 20
He said to his daughters, “So where is he? Why did you leave the man? Call him so he can eat a meal with us.”
فَٱرْتَضَى مُوسَى أَنْ يَسْكُنَ مَعَ ٱلرَّجُلِ، فَأَعْطَى مُوسَى صَفُّورَةَ ٱبْنَتَهُ. ٢١ 21
Moses agreed to stay with the man, who also gave him his daughter Zipporah in marriage.
فَوَلَدَتِ ٱبْنًا فَدَعَا ٱسْمَهُ «جَرْشُومَ»، لِأَنَّهُ قَالَ: «كُنْتُ نَزِيلًا فِي أَرْضٍ غَرِيبَةٍ». ٢٢ 22
She bore a son, and Moses called his name Gershom; he said, “I have been a resident in a foreign land.”
وَحَدَثَ فِي تِلْكَ ٱلْأَيَّامِ ٱلْكَثِيرَةِ أَنَّ مَلِكَ مِصْرَ مَاتَ. وَتَنَهَّدَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنَ ٱلْعُبُودِيَّةِ وَصَرَخُوا، فَصَعِدَ صُرَاخُهُمْ إِلَى ٱللهِ مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱلْعُبُودِيَّةِ. ٢٣ 23
A long time later, the king of Egypt died. The Israelites groaned because of the slave labor. They cried out for help, and their pleas went up to God because of their bondage.
فَسَمِعَ ٱللهُ أَنِينَهُمْ، فَتَذَكَّرَ ٱللهُ مِيثَاقَهُ مَعَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْحَاقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ. ٢٤ 24
When God heard their groaning, God called to mind his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.
وَنَظَرَ ٱللهُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ وَعَلِمَ ٱللهُ. ٢٥ 25
God saw the Israelites, and he understood their situation.
