اَلْخُرُوجُ 7

فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «ٱنْظُرْ! أَنَا جَعَلْتُكَ إِلَهًا لِفِرْعَوْنَ. وَهَارُونُ أَخُوكَ يَكُونُ نَبِيَّكَ. ١ 1
Yahweh said to Moses, “See, I have made you like a god to Pharaoh. Aaron your brother will be your prophet.
أَنْتَ تَتَكَلَّمُ بِكُلِّ مَا آمُرُكَ، وَهَارُونُ أَخُوكَ يُكَلِّمُ فِرْعَوْنَ لِيُطْلِقَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ أَرْضِهِ. ٢ 2
You will say everything that I command you to say. Aaron your brother will speak to Pharaoh so that he will let the people of Israel go from his land.
وَلَكِنِّي أُقَسِّي قَلْبَ فِرْعَوْنَ وَأُكَثِّرُ آيَاتِي وَعَجَائِبِي فِي أَرْضِ مِصْرَ. ٣ 3
But I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and I will display many signs of my power, many wonders, in the land of Egypt.
وَلَا يَسْمَعُ لَكُمَا فِرْعَوْنُ حَتَّى أَجْعَلَ يَدِي عَلَى مِصْرَ، فَأُخْرِجَ أَجْنَادِي، شَعْبِي بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ بِأَحْكَامٍ عَظِيمَةٍ. ٤ 4
But Pharaoh will not listen to you, so I will put my hand on Egypt and bring out my groups of fighting men, my people, the descendants of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great acts of punishment.
فَيَعْرِفُ ٱلْمِصْرِيُّونَ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ حِينَمَا أَمُدُّ يَدِي عَلَى مِصْرَ وَأُخْرِجُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ بَيْنِهِمْ». ٥ 5
The Egyptians will know that I am Yahweh when I reach out with my hand on Egypt and bring out the Israelites from among them.”
فَفَعَلَ مُوسَى وَهَارُونُ كَمَا أَمَرَهُمَا ٱلرَّبُّ. هَكَذَا فَعَلَا. ٦ 6
Moses and Aaron did so; they did just as Yahweh commanded them.
وَكَانَ مُوسَى ٱبْنَ ثَمَانِينَ سَنَةً، وَهَارُونُ ٱبْنَ ثَلَاثٍ وَثَمَانِينَ سَنَةً حِينَ كَلَّمَا فِرْعَوْنَ. ٧ 7
Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron eighty-three years old when they spoke to Pharaoh.
وَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ مُوسَى وَهَارُونَ قَائِلًا: ٨ 8
Yahweh said to Moses and to Aaron,
«إِذَا كَلَّمَكُمَا فِرْعَوْنُ قَائِلًا: هَاتِيَا عَجِيبَةً، تَقُولُ لِهَارُونَ: خُذْ عَصَاكَ وَٱطْرَحْهَا أَمَامَ فِرْعَوْنَ فَتَصِيرَ ثُعْبَانًا». ٩ 9
“When Pharaoh says to you, 'Do a miracle,' then you will say to Aaron, 'Take your staff and throw it down before Pharaoh, so that it may become a snake.'”
فَدَخَلَ مُوسَى وَهَارُونُ إِلَى فِرْعَوْنَ وَفَعَلَا هَكَذَا كَمَا أَمَرَ ٱلرَّبُّ. طَرَحَ هَارُونُ عَصَاهُ أَمَامَ فِرْعَوْنَ وَأَمَامَ عَبِيدِهِ فَصَارَتْ ثُعْبَانًا. ١٠ 10
Then Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh, and they did just as Yahweh had commanded. Aaron threw down his staff before Pharaoh and his servants, and it became a snake.
فَدَعَا فِرْعَوْنُ أَيْضًا ٱلْحُكَمَاءَ وَٱلسَّحَرَةَ، فَفَعَلَ عَرَّافُو مِصْرَ أَيْضًا بِسِحْرِهِمْ كَذَلِكَ. ١١ 11
Then Pharaoh also called for his wise men and sorcerers. They did the same thing by their magic.
طَرَحُوا كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ عَصَاهُ فَصَارَتِ ٱلْعِصِيُّ ثَعَابِينَ. وَلَكِنْ عَصَا هَارُونَ ٱبْتَلَعَتْ عِصِيَّهُمْ. ١٢ 12
Each man threw down his staff, and the staffs became snakes. But Aaron's staff swallowed up their snakes.
فَٱشْتَدَّ قَلْبُ فِرْعَوْنَ فَلَمْ يَسْمَعْ لَهُمَا، كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ. ١٣ 13
Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he did not listen, just as Yahweh had foretold.
ثُمَّ قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «قَلْبُ فِرْعَوْنَ غَلِيظٌ. قَدْ أَبَى أَنْ يُطْلِقَ ٱلشَّعْبَ. ١٤ 14
Yahweh said to Moses, “Pharaoh's heart is hard, and he refuses to let the people go.
اِذْهَبْ إِلَى فِرْعَوْنَ فِي ٱلصَّبَاحِ. إِنَّهُ يَخْرُجُ إِلَى ٱلْمَاءِ، وَقِفْ لِلِقَائِهِ عَلَى حَافَةِ ٱلنَّهْرِ. وَٱلْعَصَا ٱلَّتِي تَحَوَّلَتْ حَيَّةً تَأْخُذُهَا فِي يَدِكَ. ١٥ 15
Go to Pharaoh in the morning when he goes out to the water. Stand on the riverbank to meet him, and take in your hand the staff that had turned into a snake.
وَتَقُولُ لَهُ: ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ ٱلْعِبْرَانِيِّينَ أَرْسَلَنِي إِلَيْكَ قَائِلًا: أَطْلِقْ شَعْبِي لِيَعْبُدُونِي فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ. وَهُوَذَا حَتَّى ٱلْآنَ لَمْ تَسْمَعْ. ١٦ 16
Say to him, 'Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to you to say, “Let my people go, so that they may worship me in the wilderness. Until now you have not listened.”
هَكَذَا يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ: بِهَذَا تَعْرِفُ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ: هَا أَنَا أَضْرِبُ بِٱلْعَصَا ٱلَّتِي فِي يَدِي عَلَى ٱلْمَاءِ ٱلَّذِي فِي ٱلنَّهْرِ فَيَتَحَوَّلُ دَمًا. ١٧ 17
Yahweh says this: “By this you will know that I am Yahweh. I am going to strike the water of the Nile River with the staff that is in my hand, and the river will be turned to blood.
وَيَمُوتُ ٱلسَّمَكُ ٱلَّذِي فِي ٱلنَّهْرِ وَيَنْتِنُ ٱلنَّهْرُ. فَيَعَافُ ٱلْمِصْرِيُّونَ أَنْ يَشْرَبُوا مَاءً مِنَ ٱلنَّهْرِ». ١٨ 18
The fish that are in the river will die, and the river will stink. The Egyptians will not be able to drink water from the river.”'”
ثُمَّ قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «قُلْ لِهَارُونَ: خُذْ عَصَاكَ وَمُدَّ يَدَكَ عَلَى مِيَاهِ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّينَ، عَلَى أَنْهَارِهِمْ وَعَلَى سَوَاقِيهِمْ، وَعَلَى آجَامِهِمْ، وَعَلَى كُلِّ مُجْتَمَعَاتِ مِيَاهِهِمْ لِتَصِيرَ دَمًا. فَيَكُونَ دَمٌ فِي كُلِّ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ فِي ٱلْأَخْشَابِ وَفِي ٱلْأَحْجَارِ». ١٩ 19
Then Yahweh said to Moses, “Say to Aaron, 'Take your staff and reach out with your hand over the waters of Egypt, and over their rivers, streams, pools, and all their ponds, so that their water may become blood. Do this so that there will be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, even in containers of wood and stone.'”
فَفَعَلَ هَكَذَا مُوسَى وَهَارُونُ كَمَا أَمَرَ ٱلرَّبُّ. رَفَعَ ٱلْعَصَا وَضَرَبَ ٱلْمَاءَ ٱلَّذِي فِي ٱلنَّهْرِ أَمَامَ عَيْنَيْ فِرْعَوْنَ وَأَمَامَ عُيُونِ عَبِيدِهِ، فَتَحَوَّلَ كُلُّ ٱلْمَاءِ ٱلَّذِي فِي ٱلنَّهْرِ دَمًا. ٢٠ 20
Moses and Aaron did as Yahweh commanded. Aaron raised the staff and struck the water in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh and his servants. All the water in the river turned to blood.
وَمَاتَ ٱلسَّمَكُ ٱلَّذِي فِي ٱلنَّهْرِ وَأَنْتَنَ ٱلنَّهْرُ، فَلَمْ يَقْدِرِ ٱلْمِصْرِيُّونَ أَنْ يَشْرَبُوا مَاءً مِنَ ٱلنَّهْرِ. وَكَانَ ٱلدَّمُ فِي كُلِّ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ. ٢١ 21
The fish in the river died, and the river began to stink. The Egyptians could not drink water from the river, and the blood was everywhere in the land of Egypt.
وَفَعَلَ عَرَّافُو مِصْرَ كَذَلِكَ بِسِحْرِهِمْ. فَٱشْتَدَّ قَلْبُ فِرْعَوْنَ فَلَمْ يَسْمَعْ لَهُمَا، كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٢٢ 22
But the magicians of Egypt did the same thing with their magic. So Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he refused to listen to Moses and Aaron, just as Yahweh had said would happen.
ثُمَّ ٱنْصَرَفَ فِرْعَوْنُ وَدَخَلَ بَيْتَهُ وَلَمْ يُوَجِّهْ قَلْبَهُ إِلَى هَذَا أَيْضًا. ٢٣ 23
Then Pharaoh turned and went into his house. He did not even pay attention to this.
وَحَفَرَ جَمِيعُ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّينَ حَوَالَيِ ٱلنَّهْرِ لِأَجْلِ مَاءٍ لِيَشْرَبُوا، لِأَنَّهُمْ لَمْ يَقْدِرُوا أَنْ يَشْرَبُوا مِنْ مَاءِ ٱلنَّهْرِ. ٢٤ 24
All the Egyptians dug around the river for water to drink, but they could not drink the water of the river itself.
وَكَمُلَتْ سَبْعَةُ أَيَّامٍ بَعْدَ مَا ضَرَبَ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلنَّهْرَ. ٢٥ 25
Seven days passed after Yahweh had attacked the river.
