اَلْخُرُوجُ 33

وَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «ٱذْهَبِ ٱصْعَدْ مِنْ هُنَا أَنْتَ وَٱلشَّعْبُ ٱلَّذِي أَصْعَدْتَهُ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي حَلَفْتُ لِإِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْحَاقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ قَائِلًا: لِنَسْلِكَ أُعْطِيهَا. ١ 1
Then Yahweh spoke to Moses, “Go from here, you and the people whom you have brought up out of the land of Egypt. Go to the land about which I made an oath to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, when I said, 'I will give it to your descendants.'
وَأَنَا أُرْسِلُ أَمَامَكَ مَلَاكًا، وَأَطْرُدُ ٱلْكَنْعَانِيِّينَ وَٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ وَٱلْحِثِّيِّينَ وَٱلْفِرِزِّيِّينَ وَٱلْحِوِّيِّينَ وَٱلْيَبُوسِيِّينَ. ٢ 2
I will send an angel before you, and I will drive out the Canaanites, Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites.
إِلَى أَرْضٍ تَفِيضُ لَبَنًا وَعَسَلًا. فَإِنِّي لَا أَصْعَدُ فِي وَسَطِكَ لِأَنَّكَ شَعْبٌ صُلْبُ ٱلرَّقَبَةِ، لِئَلَّا أُفْنِيَكَ فِي ٱلطَّرِيقِ». ٣ 3
Go to that land, which is flowing with milk and honey, but I will not go up with you, because you are a stubborn people. I might destroy you on the way.”
فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ ٱلشَّعْبُ هَذَا ٱلْكَلَامَ ٱلسُّوءَ نَاحُوا وَلَمْ يَضَعْ أَحَدٌ زِينَتَهُ عَلَيْهِ. ٤ 4
When the people heard these troubling words, they mourned, and no one put on any jewelry.
وَكَانَ ٱلرَّبُّ قَدْ قَالَ لِمُوسَى: «قُلْ لِبَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ: أَنْتُمْ شَعْبٌ صُلْبُ ٱلرَّقَبَةِ. إِنْ صَعِدْتُ لَحْظَةً وَاحِدَةً فِي وَسَطِكُمْ أَفْنَيْتُكُمْ. وَلَكِنِ ٱلْآنَ ٱخْلَعْ زِينَتَكَ عَنْكَ فَأَعْلَمَ مَاذَا أَصْنَعُ بِكَ». ٥ 5
Yahweh had said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, 'You are a stubborn people. If I went among you for even one moment, I would destroy you. So now, take off your jewelry so that I may decide what to do with you.'”
فَنَزَعَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ زِينَتَهُمْ مِنْ جَبَلِ حُورِيبَ. ٦ 6
So the Israelites wore no jewelry from Mount Horeb onward.
وَأَخَذَ مُوسَى ٱلْخَيْمَةَ وَنَصَبَهَا لَهُ خَارِجَ ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ، بَعِيدًا عَنِ ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ، وَدَعَاهَا «خَيْمَةَ ٱلِٱجْتِمَاعِ». فَكَانَ كُلُّ مَنْ يَطْلُبُ ٱلرَّبَّ يَخْرُجُ إِلَى خَيْمَةِ ٱلِٱجْتِمَاعِ ٱلَّتِي خَارِجَ ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ. ٧ 7
Moses took a tent and pitched it outside the camp, some distance from the camp. He called it the tent of meeting. Everyone who asked Yahweh for anything went out to the tent of meeting, outside the camp.
وَكَانَ جَمِيعُ ٱلشَّعْبِ إِذَا خَرَجَ مُوسَى إِلَى ٱلْخَيْمَةِ يَقُومُونَ وَيَقِفُونَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ فِي بَابِ خَيْمَتِهِ وَيَنْظُرُونَ وَرَاءَ مُوسَى حَتَّى يَدْخُلَ ٱلْخَيْمَةَ. ٨ 8
When Moses would go out to the tent, all the people would stand up at their tent entrances and look at Moses until he had gone inside.
وَكَانَ عَمُودُ ٱلسَّحَابِ إِذَا دَخَلَ مُوسَى ٱلْخَيْمَةَ، يَنْزِلُ وَيَقِفُ عِنْدَ بَابِ ٱلْخَيْمَةِ. وَيَتَكَلَّمُ ٱلرَّبُّ مَعَ مُوسَى. ٩ 9
Whenever Moses entered the tent, the pillar of cloud would come down and stand at the tent entrance, and Yahweh would speak with Moses.
فَيَرَى جَمِيعُ ٱلشَّعْبِ عَمُودَ ٱلسَّحَابِ، وَاقِفًا عِنْدَ بَابِ ٱلْخَيْمَةِ، وَيَقُومُ كُلُّ ٱلشَّعْبِ وَيَسْجُدُونَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ فِي بَابِ خَيْمَتِهِ. ١٠ 10
Whenever all the people saw the pillar of cloud stand at the entrance to the tent, they would get up and worship, every man at his own tent entrance.
وَيُكَلِّمُ ٱلرَّبُّ مُوسَى وَجْهًا لِوَجْهٍ، كَمَا يُكَلِّمُ ٱلرَّجُلُ صَاحِبَهُ. وَإِذَا رَجَعَ مُوسَى إِلَى ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ كَانَ خَادِمُهُ يَشُوعُ بْنُ نُونَ ٱلْغُلَامُ، لَا يَبْرَحُ مِنْ دَاخِلِ ٱلْخَيْمَةِ. ١١ 11
Yahweh would speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. Then Moses would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua son of Nun, a young man, would stay in the tent.
وَقَالَ مُوسَى لِلرَّبِّ: «ٱنْظُرْ. أَنْتَ قَائِلٌ لِي: أَصْعِدْ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبَ، وَأَنْتَ لَمْ تُعَرِّفْنِي مَنْ تُرْسِلُ مَعِي. وَأَنْتَ قَدْ قُلْتَ: عَرَفْتُكَ بِٱسْمِكَ، وَوَجَدْتَ أَيْضًا نِعْمَةً فِي عَيْنَيَّ. ١٢ 12
Moses said to Yahweh, “See, you have been saying to me, 'Take this people on their journey,' but you have not let me know whom you will send with me. You have said, 'I know you by name, and you have also found favor in my eyes.'
فَٱلْآنَ إِنْ كُنْتُ قَدْ وَجَدْتُ نِعْمَةً فِي عَيْنَيْكَ فَعَلِّمْنِي طَرِيقَكَ حَتَّى أَعْرِفَكَ لِكَيْ أَجِدَ نِعْمَةً فِي عَيْنَيْكَ. وَٱنْظُرْ أَنَّ هَذِهِ ٱلْأُمَّةَ شَعْبُكَ». ١٣ 13
Now if I have found favor in your eyes, show me your ways so that I may know you and continue to find favor in your eyes. Remember that this nation is your people.”
فَقَالَ: «وَجْهِي يَسِيرُ فَأُرِيحُكَ». ١٤ 14
Yahweh answered, “My own presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
فَقَالَ لَهُ: «إِنْ لَمْ يَسِرْ وَجْهُكَ فَلَا تُصْعِدْنَا مِنْ هَهُنَا، ١٥ 15
Moses said to him, “If your presence does not go with us, do not take us up from here.
فَإِنَّهُ بِمَاذَا يُعْلَمُ أَنِّي وَجَدْتُ نِعْمَةً فِي عَيْنَيْكَ أَنَا وَشَعْبُكَ؟ أَلَيْسَ بِمَسِيرِكَ مَعَنَا؟ فَنَمْتَازَ أَنَا وَشَعْبُكَ عَنْ جَمِيعِ ٱلشُّعُوبِ ٱلَّذِينَ عَلَى وَجْهِ ٱلْأَرْضِ». ١٦ 16
For otherwise, how will it be known that I have found favor in your eyes, I and your people? Will it not only be if you go with us so that I and your people are different from all the other peoples that are on the surface of the earth?”
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «هَذَا ٱلْأَمْرُ أَيْضًا ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمْتَ عَنْهُ أَفْعَلُهُ، لِأَنَّكَ وَجَدْتَ نِعْمَةً فِي عَيْنَيَّ، وَعَرَفْتُكَ بِٱسْمِكَ». ١٧ 17
Yahweh said to Moses, “I will also do this thing that you have requested, for you have found favor in my eyes, and I know you by name.”
فَقَالَ: «أَرِنِي مَجْدَكَ». ١٨ 18
Moses said, “Please show me your glory.”
فَقَالَ: «أُجِيزُ كُلَّ جُودَتِي قُدَّامَكَ. وَأُنَادِي بِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ قُدَّامَكَ. وَأَتَرَاءَفُ عَلَى مَنْ أَتَرَاءَفُ، وَأَرْحَمُ مَنْ أَرْحَمُ». ١٩ 19
Yahweh said, “I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim my name 'Yahweh' before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.”
وَقَالَ: «لَا تَقْدِرُ أَنْ تَرَى وَجْهِي، لِأَنَّ ٱلْإِنْسَانَ لَا يَرَانِي وَيَعِيشُ». ٢٠ 20
But Yahweh said, “You may not see my face, for no one can see me and live.”
وَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «هُوَذَا عِنْدِي مَكَانٌ، فَتَقِفُ عَلَى ٱلصَّخْرَةِ. ٢١ 21
Yahweh said, “See, here is a place by me; you will stand on this rock.
وَيَكُونُ مَتَى ٱجْتَازَ مَجْدِي، أَنِّي أَضَعُكَ فِي نُقْرَةٍ مِنَ ٱلصَّخْرَةِ، وَأَسْتُرُكَ بِيَدِي حَتَّى أَجْتَازَ. ٢٢ 22
While my glory passes by, I will put you in a crevice of the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by.
ثُمَّ أَرْفَعُ يَدِي فَتَنْظُرُ وَرَائِي، وَأَمَّا وَجْهِي فَلَا يُرَى». ٢٣ 23
Then I will take away my hand, and you will see my back, but my face will not be seen.”
