اَلْخُرُوجُ 32

وَلَمَّا رَأَى ٱلشَّعْبُ أَنَّ مُوسَى أَبْطَأَ فِي ٱلنُّزُولِ مِنَ ٱلْجَبَلِ، ٱجْتَمَعَ ٱلشَّعْبُ عَلَى هَارُونَ وَقَالُوا لَهُ: «قُمِ ٱصْنَعْ لَنَا آلِهَةً تَسِيرُ أَمَامَنَا، لِأَنَّ هَذَا مُوسَى ٱلرَّجُلَ ٱلَّذِي أَصْعَدَنَا مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ، لَا نَعْلَمُ مَاذَا أَصَابَهُ». ١ 1
When the people saw that Moses delayed in coming down the mountain, they gathered around Aaron and said to him, “Come, make us an idol that will go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has happened to him.”
فَقَالَ لَهُمْ هَارُونُ: «ٱنْزِعُوا أَقْرَاطَ ٱلذَّهَبِ ٱلَّتِي فِي آذَانِ نِسَائِكُمْ وَبَنِيكُمْ وَبَنَاتِكُمْ وَآتُونِي بِهَا». ٢ 2
So Aaron said to them, “Take off the golden rings that are on your wives' ears, and the ears of your sons and daughters, and bring them to me.”
فَنَزَعَ كُلُّ ٱلشَّعْبِ أَقْرَاطَ ٱلذَّهَبِ ٱلَّتِي فِي آذَانِهِمْ وَأَتَوْا بِهَا إِلَى هَارُونَ. ٣ 3
All the people took off the golden rings that were on their ears and brought them to Aaron.
فَأَخَذَ ذَلِكَ مِنْ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَصَوَّرَهُ بِٱلْإِزْمِيلِ، وَصَنَعَهُ عِجْلًا مَسْبُوكًا. فَقَالُوا: «هَذِهِ آلِهَتُكَ يَا إِسْرَائِيلُ ٱلَّتِي أَصْعَدَتْكَ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ». ٤ 4
He received the gold from them, fashioned it in a mold, and made it into a molded calf. Then the people said, “Israel, this is your god who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.”
فَلَمَّا نَظَرَ هَارُونُ بَنَى مَذْبَحًا أَمَامَهُ، وَنَادَى هَارُونُ وَقَالَ: «غَدًا عِيدٌ لِلرَّبِّ». ٥ 5
When Aaron saw this, he built an altar before the calf and made a proclamation; he said, “Tomorrow will be a festival in Yahweh's honor.”
فَبَكَّرُوا فِي ٱلْغَدِ وَأَصْعَدُوا مُحْرَقَاتٍ وَقَدَّمُوا ذَبَائِحَ سَلَامَةٍ. وَجَلَسَ ٱلشَّعْبُ لِلْأَكْلِ وَٱلشُّرْبِ ثُمَّ قَامُوا لِلَّعِبِ. ٦ 6
The people arose early the next day and offered burnt offerings and brought fellowship offerings. Then they sat down to eat and to drink, and then got up to carouse in wild celebration.
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «ٱذْهَبِ ٱنْزِلْ. لِأَنَّهُ قَدْ فَسَدَ شَعْبُكَ ٱلَّذِي أَصْعَدْتَهُ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ. ٧ 7
Then Yahweh spoke to Moses, “Go quickly, for your people, whom you brought up out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves.
زَاغُوا سَرِيعًا عَنِ ٱلطَّرِيقِ ٱلَّذِي أَوْصَيْتُهُمْ بِهِ. صَنَعُوا لَهُمْ عِجْلًا مَسْبُوكًا، وَسَجَدُوا لَهُ وَذَبَحُوا لَهُ وَقَالُوا: هَذِهِ آلِهَتُكَ يَا إِسْرَائِيلُ ٱلَّتِي أَصْعَدَتْكَ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ». ٨ 8
They have quickly left the way that I commanded them. They have molded for themselves a calf and have worshiped it and sacrificed to it. They have said, 'Israel, this is your god who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.'”
وَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «رَأَيْتُ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبَ وَإِذَا هُوَ شَعْبٌ صُلْبُ ٱلرَّقَبَةِ. ٩ 9
Then Yahweh said to Moses, “I have seen this people. Look, they are a stiff-necked people.
فَٱلْآنَ ٱتْرُكْنِي لِيَحْمَى غَضَبِي عَلَيْهِمْ وَأُفْنِيَهُمْ، فَأُصَيِّرَكَ شَعْبًا عَظِيمًا». ١٠ 10
Now then, do not try to stop me. My anger will burn hot against them, so I will destroy them. Then I will make a great nation from you.”
فَتَضَرَّعَ مُوسَى أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِهِ، وَقَالَ: «لِمَاذَا يَا رَبُّ يَحْمَى غَضَبُكَ عَلَى شَعْبِكَ ٱلَّذِي أَخْرَجْتَهُ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ بِقُوَّةٍ عَظِيمَةٍ وَيَدٍ شَدِيدَةٍ؟ ١١ 11
But Moses tried to calm down Yahweh his God. He said, “Yahweh, why does your anger burn against your people, whom you have brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand?
لِمَاذَا يَتَكَلَّمُ ٱلْمِصْرِيُّونَ قَائِلِينَ: أَخْرَجَهُمْ بِخُبْثٍ لِيَقْتُلَهُمْ فِي ٱلْجِبَالِ، وَيُفْنِيَهُمْ عَنْ وَجْهِ ٱلْأَرْضِ؟ اِرْجِعْ عَنْ حُمُوِّ غَضَبِكَ، وَٱنْدَمْ عَلَى ٱلشَّرِّ بِشَعْبِكَ. ١٢ 12
Why should the Egyptians say, 'He led them out with evil intent, to kill them in the mountains and to destroy them from the face of the earth?' Turn from your burning anger and relent from this punishment on your people.
اُذْكُرْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْحَاقَ وَإِسْرَائِيلَ عَبِيدَكَ ٱلَّذِينَ حَلَفْتَ لَهُمْ بِنَفْسِكَ وَقُلْتَ لَهُمْ: أُكَثِّرُ نَسْلَكُمْ كَنُجُومِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ، وَأُعْطِي نَسْلَكُمْ كُلَّ هَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي تَكَلَّمْتُ عَنْهَا فَيَمْلِكُونَهَا إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ». ١٣ 13
Call to mind Abraham and Isaac and Israel, your servants, to whom you swore by your own self and said to them, 'I will make your descendants as many as the stars in the heavens, and I will give to your descendants all this land of which I have spoken. They will inherit it forever.'”
فَنَدِمَ ٱلرَّبُّ عَلَى ٱلشَّرِّ ٱلَّذِي قَالَ إِنَّهُ يَفْعَلُهُ بِشَعْبِهِ. ١٤ 14
Then Yahweh relented from the punishment that he had said he would inflict on his people.
فَٱنْصَرَفَ مُوسَى وَنَزَلَ مِنَ ٱلْجَبَلِ وَلَوْحَا ٱلشَّهَادَةِ فِي يَدِهِ: لَوْحَانِ مَكْتُوبَانِ عَلَى جَانِبَيْهِمَا. مِنْ هُنَا وَمِنْ هُنَا كَانَا مَكْتُوبَيْنِ. ١٥ 15
Then Moses turned around and went down the mountain, carrying the two tablets of the covenant decrees in his hand. The tablets were written on both their sides, on both the front and the back.
وَٱللَّوْحَانِ هُمَا صَنْعَةُ ٱللهِ، وَٱلْكِتَابَةُ كِتَابَةُ ٱللهِ مَنْقُوشَةٌ عَلَى ٱللَّوْحَيْنِ. ١٦ 16
The tablets were God's own work, and the writing was God's own writing, engraved on the tablets.
وَسَمِعَ يَشُوعُ صَوْتَ ٱلشَّعْبِ فِي هُتَافِهِ فَقَالَ لِمُوسَى: «صَوْتُ قِتَالٍ فِي ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ». ١٧ 17
When Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said to Moses, “There is the noise of combat in the camp.”
فَقَالَ: «لَيْسَ صَوْتَ صِيَاحِ ٱلنُّصْرَةِ وَلَا صَوْتَ صِيَاحِ ٱلْكَسْرَةِ، بَلْ صَوْتَ غِنَاءٍ أَنَا سَامِعٌ». ١٨ 18
But Moses said, “It is not the sound of a victor, and not the sound of defeated people, but the sound of singing that I hear.”
وَكَانَ عِنْدَمَا ٱقْتَرَبَ إِلَى ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ أَنَّهُ أَبْصَرَ ٱلْعِجْلَ وَٱلرَّقْصَ، فَحَمِيَ غَضَبُ مُوسَى، وَطَرَحَ ٱللَّوْحَيْنِ مِنْ يَدَيْهِ وَكَسَّرَهُمَا فِي أَسْفَلِ ٱلْجَبَلِ. ١٩ 19
When Moses approached the camp, he saw the calf and the people dancing. He became very angry. He threw the tablets out of his hands and broke them at the bottom of the mountain.
ثُمَّ أَخَذَ ٱلْعِجْلَ ٱلَّذِي صَنَعُوا وَأَحْرَقَهُ بِٱلنَّارِ، وَطَحَنَهُ حَتَّى صَارَ نَاعِمًا، وَذَرَّاهُ عَلَى وَجْهِ ٱلْمَاءِ، وَسَقَى بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٢٠ 20
He took the calf that the people had made, burned it, ground it to powder, and poured it into the water. Then he made the people of Israel drink it.
وَقَالَ مُوسَى لِهَارُونَ: «مَاذَا صَنَعَ بِكَ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبُ حَتَّى جَلَبْتَ عَلَيْهِ خَطِيَّةً عَظِيمَةً؟» ٢١ 21
Then Moses said to Aaron, “What did this people do to you, that you have brought such a great sin on them?”
فَقَالَ هَارُونُ: «لَا يَحْمَ غَضَبُ سَيِّدِي. أَنْتَ تَعْرِفُ ٱلشَّعْبَ أَنَّهُ فِي شَرٍّ. ٢٢ 22
Aaron said, “Do not let your anger burn hot, my master. You know these people, how they are set on doing evil.
فَقَالُوا لِيَ: ٱصْنَعْ لَنَا آلِهَةً تَسِيرُ أَمَامَنَا، لِأَنَّ هَذَا مُوسَى ٱلرَّجُلَ ٱلَّذِي أَصْعَدَنَا مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ، لَا نَعْلَمُ مَاذَا أَصَابَهُ. ٢٣ 23
They said to me, 'Make us a god who will go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has happened to him.'
فَقُلْتُ لَهُمْ: مَنْ لَهُ ذَهَبٌ فَلْيَنْزِعْهُ وَيُعْطِنِي. فَطَرَحْتُهُ فِي ٱلنَّارِ فَخَرَجَ هَذَا ٱلْعِجْلُ». ٢٤ 24
So I said to them, 'Whoever has any gold, let him take it off.' They gave me the gold and I threw it into the fire, and out came this calf.”
وَلَمَّا رَأَى مُوسَى ٱلشَّعْبَ أَنَّهُ مُعَرًّى لِأَنَّ هَارُونَ كَانَ قَدْ عَرَّاهُ لِلْهُزْءِ بَيْنَ مُقَاوِمِيهِ، ٢٥ 25
Moses saw that the people were running wild (for Aaron had let them get out of control, causing their enemies to mock them).
وَقَفَ مُوسَى فِي بَابِ ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ، وَقَالَ: «مَنْ لِلرَّبِّ فَإِلَيَّ». فَٱجْتَمَعَ إِلَيْهِ جَمِيعُ بَنِي لَاوِي. ٢٦ 26
Then Moses stood at the entrance to the camp and said, “Whoever is on Yahweh's side, come to me.” All the Levites gathered around him.
فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ: ضَعُوا كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ سَيْفَهُ عَلَى فَخْذِهِ وَمُرُّوا وَٱرْجِعُوا مِنْ بَابٍ إِلَى بَابٍ فِي ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ، وَٱقْتُلُوا كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ أَخَاهُ وَكُلُّ وَاحِدٍ صَاحِبَهُ وَكُلُّ وَاحِدٍ قَرِيبَهُ». ٢٧ 27
He said to them, “Yahweh, the God of Israel, says this: 'Let each man fasten his sword on his side and go back and forth from entrance to entrance throughout the camp, and kill his brother, his companion, and his neighbor.'”
فَفَعَلَ بَنُو لَاوِي بِحَسَبِ قَوْلِ مُوسَى. وَوَقَعَ مِنَ ٱلشَّعْبِ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ نَحْوُ ثَلَاثَةِ آلَافِ رَجُلٍ. ٢٨ 28
The Levites did what Moses ordered. That day about three thousand of the people died.
وَقَالَ مُوسَى: «ٱمْلَأُوا أَيْدِيَكُمُ ٱلْيَوْمَ لِلرَّبِّ، حَتَّى كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ بِٱبْنِهِ وَبِأَخِيهِ، فَيُعْطِيَكُمُ ٱلْيَوْمَ بَرَكَةً». ٢٩ 29
Moses said to the Levites, “You have been placed into Yahweh's service today, for each of you has taken action against his son and his brother, so Yahweh might give you a blessing today.”
وَكَانَ فِي ٱلْغَدِ أَنَّ مُوسَى قَالَ لِلشَّعْبِ: «أَنْتُمْ قَدْ أَخْطَأْتُمْ خَطِيَّةً عَظِيمَةً، فَأَصْعَدُ ٱلْآنَ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ لَعَلِّي أُكَفِّرُ خَطِيَّتَكُمْ». ٣٠ 30
The next day Moses said to the people, “You have committed a very great sin. Now I will go up to Yahweh. Perhaps I can make atonement for your sin.”
فَرَجَعَ مُوسَى إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ، وَقَالَ: «آهِ، قَدْ أَخْطَأَ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبُ خَطِيَّةً عَظِيمَةً وَصَنَعُوا لِأَنْفُسِهِمْ آلِهَةً مِنْ ذَهَبٍ. ٣١ 31
Moses returned to Yahweh and said, “Oh, these people have committed a great sin and made themselves an idol of gold.
وَٱلْآنَ إِنْ غَفَرْتَ خَطِيَّتَهُمْ، وَإِلَّا فَٱمْحُنِي مِنْ كِتَابِكَ ٱلَّذِي كَتَبْتَ». ٣٢ 32
But now, please forgive their sin; but if you do not, blot me out of the book that you have written.”
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «مَنْ أَخْطَأَ إِلَيَّ أَمْحُوهُ مِنْ كِتَابِي. ٣٣ 33
Yahweh said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me, that person I will blot out of my book.
وَٱلْآنَ ٱذْهَبِ ٱهْدِ ٱلشَّعْبَ إِلَى حَيْثُ كَلَّمْتُكَ. هُوَذَا مَلَاكِي يَسِيرُ أَمَامَكَ. وَلَكِنْ فِي يَوْمِ ٱفْتِقَادِي أَفْتَقِدُ فِيهِمْ خَطِيَّتَهُمْ». ٣٤ 34
So now go, lead the people to the place of which I have spoken to you. See, my angel will go before you. But on the day that I punish them, I will punish them for their sin.”
فَضَرَبَ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلشَّعْبَ، لِأَنَّهُمْ صَنَعُوا ٱلْعِجْلَ ٱلَّذِي صَنَعَهُ هَارُونُ. ٣٥ 35
Yahweh sent a plague on the people because they had made the calf, the one that Aaron made.
