اَلْخُرُوجُ 9

ثُمَّ قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «ٱدْخُلْ إِلَى فِرْعَوْنَ وَقُلْ لَهُ: هَكَذَا يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ ٱلْعِبْرَانِيِّينَ: أَطْلِقْ شَعْبِي لِيَعْبُدُونِي. ١ 1
Then Yahweh said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and tell him, 'Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, says this: “Let my people go so that they may worship me.”
فَإِنَّهُ إِنْ كُنْتَ تَأْبَى أَنْ تُطْلِقَهُمْ وَكُنْتَ تُمْسِكُهُمْ بَعْدُ، ٢ 2
But if you refuse to let them go, if you still keep them back,
فَهَا يَدُ ٱلرَّبِّ تَكُونُ عَلَى مَوَاشِيكَ ٱلَّتِي فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ، عَلَى ٱلْخَيْلِ وَٱلْحَمِيرِ وَٱلْجِمَالِ وَٱلْبَقَرِ وَٱلْغَنَمِ، وَبَأً ثَقِيلًا جِدًّا. ٣ 3
then Yahweh's hand will be on your cattle in the fields and on the horses, donkeys, camels, herds, and flocks, and it will cause a terrible disease.
وَيُمَيِّزُ ٱلرَّبُّ بَيْنَ مَوَاشِي إِسْرَائِيلَ وَمَوَاشِي ٱلْمِصْرِيِّينَ. فَلَا يَمُوتُ مِنْ كُلِّ مَا لِبَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ شَيْءٌ». ٤ 4
Yahweh will treat Israel's cattle and Egypt's cattle differently and no animal that belongs to the Israelites will die.
وَعَيَّنَ ٱلرَّبُّ وَقْتًا قَائِلًا: «غَدًا يَفْعَلُ ٱلرَّبُّ هَذَا ٱلْأَمْرَ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ». ٥ 5
Yahweh has fixed a time; he has said, “It is tomorrow that I will do this thing in the land.”'”
فَفَعَلَ ٱلرَّبُّ هَذَا ٱلْأَمْرَ فِي ٱلْغَدِ. فَمَاتَتْ جَمِيعُ مَوَاشِي ٱلْمِصْرِيِّينَ. وَأَمَّا مَوَاشِي بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ فَلَمْ يَمُتْ مِنْهَا وَاحِدٌ. ٦ 6
Yahweh did this the next day: All the cattle of Egypt died, but none of the Israelites' animals died, not one animal.
وَأَرْسَلَ فِرْعَوْنُ وَإِذَا مَوَاشِي إِسْرَائِيلَ لَمْ يَمُتْ مِنْهَا وَلَا وَاحِدٌ. وَلَكِنْ غَلُظَ قَلْبُ فِرْعَوْنَ فَلَمْ يُطْلِقِ ٱلشَّعْبَ. ٧ 7
Pharaoh investigated, and, behold, not even one animal of the Israelites died. But his heart was stubborn, so he did not let the people go.
ثُمَّ قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى وَهَارُونَ: «خُذَا مِلْءَ أَيْدِيكُمَا مِنْ رَمَادِ ٱلأَتُونِ، وَلْيُذَرِّهِ مُوسَى نَحْوَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ أَمَامَ عَيْنَيْ فِرْعَوْنَ، ٨ 8
Then Yahweh said to Moses and to Aaron, “Take some handfuls of ashes from a kiln. You, Moses, must throw the ashes up into the air while Pharaoh is watching.
لِيَصِيرَ غُبَارًا عَلَى كُلِّ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ. فَيَصِيرَ عَلَى ٱلنَّاسِ وَعَلَى ٱلْبَهَائِمِ دَمَامِلَ طَالِعَةً بِبُثُورٍ فِي كُلِّ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ». ٩ 9
They will become fine dust over all the land of Egypt. They will cause blisters and sores to break out on people and animals throughout all the land of Egypt.”
فَأَخَذَا رَمَادَ ٱلْأَتُونِ وَوَقَفَا أَمَامَ فِرْعَوْنَ، وَذَرَّاهُ مُوسَى نَحْوَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ، فَصَارَ دَمَامِلَ بُثُورٍ طَالِعَةً فِي ٱلنَّاسِ وَفِي ٱلْبَهَائِمِ. ١٠ 10
So Moses and Aaron took ashes from a kiln and stood in front of Pharaoh. Then Moses threw the ashes up into the air. The ashes caused blisters and sores to break out on people and animals.
وَلَمْ يَسْتَطِعِ ٱلْعَرَّافُونَ أَنْ يَقِفُوا أَمَامَ مُوسَى مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱلدَّمَامِلِ، لِأَنَّ ٱلدَّمَامِلَ كَانَتْ فِي ٱلْعَرَّافِينَ وَفِي كُلِّ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّينَ. ١١ 11
The magicians could not resist Moses because of the blisters, because the blisters were on them and on all the other Egyptians.
وَلَكِنْ شَدَّدَ ٱلرَّبُّ قَلْبَ فِرْعَوْنَ فَلَمْ يَسْمَعْ لَهُمَا، كَمَا كَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ مُوسَى. ١٢ 12
Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, so Pharaoh did not listen to Moses and Aaron. This was just as Yahweh had said to Moses that Pharaoh would do.
ثُمَّ قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «بَكِّرْ فِي ٱلصَّبَاحِ وَقِفْ أَمَامَ فِرْعَوْنَ وَقُلْ لَهُ: هَكَذَا يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ ٱلْعِبْرَانِيِّينَ: أَطْلِقْ شَعْبِي لِيَعْبُدُونِي. ١٣ 13
Then Yahweh said to Moses, “Get up early in the morning, stand in front of Pharaoh, and say to him, 'Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews, says this: “Let my people go so that they may worship me.
لِأَنِّي هَذِهِ ٱلْمَرَّةَ أُرْسِلُ جَمِيعَ ضَرَبَاتِي إِلَى قَلْبِكَ وَعَلَى عَبِيدِكَ وَشَعْبِكَ، لِكَيْ تَعْرِفَ أَنْ لَيْسَ مِثْلِي فِي كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٤ 14
For this time I will send all my plagues on you yourself, on your servants and your people. I will do this so that you may know that there is no one like me in all the earth.
فَإِنَّهُ ٱلْآنَ لَوْ كُنْتُ أَمُدُّ يَدِي وَأَضْرِبُكَ وَشَعْبَكَ بِٱلْوَبَإِ، لَكُنْتَ تُبَادُ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٥ 15
By now I could have reached out with my hand and attacked you and your people with disease, and you would have been eradicated from the land.
وَلَكِنْ لِأَجْلِ هَذَا أَقَمْتُكَ، لِكَيْ أُرِيَكَ قُوَّتِي، وَلِكَيْ يُخْبَرَ بِٱسْمِي فِي كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٦ 16
But it was for this reason I allowed you to survive: In order to show you my power, so that my name may be proclaimed throughout all the earth.
أَنْتَ مُعَانِدٌ بَعْدُ لِشَعْبِي حَتَّى لَا تُطْلِقَهُ. ١٧ 17
You are still lifting yourself up against my people by not letting them go.
هَا أَنَا غَدًا مِثْلَ ٱلْآنَ أُمْطِرُ بَرَدًا عَظِيمًا جِدًّا لَمْ يَكُنْ مِثْلُهُ فِي مِصْرَ مُنْذُ يَوْمِ تَأْسِيسِهَا إِلَى ٱلْآنَ. ١٨ 18
Listen! Tomorrow about this time I will bring a very strong hail storm, such as has not been seen in Egypt since the day it was begun until now.
فَٱلْآنَ أَرْسِلِ ٱحْمِ مَوَاشِيَكَ وَكُلَّ مَا لَكَ فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ. جَمِيعُ ٱلنَّاسِ وَٱلْبَهَائِمِ ٱلَّذِينَ يُوجَدُونَ فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ وَلَا يُجْمَعُونَ إِلَى ٱلْبُيُوتِ، يَنْزِلُ عَلَيْهِمِ ٱلْبَرَدُ فَيَمُوتُونَ». ١٩ 19
Now then, send men and gather your cattle and everything you have in the fields to a safe place. Every man and animal that is in the field and is not brought home—the hail will come down on them, and they will die.”'”
فَٱلَّذِي خَافَ كَلِمَةَ ٱلرَّبِّ مِنْ عَبِيدِ فِرْعَوْنَ هَرَبَ بِعَبِيدِهِ وَمَوَاشِيهِ إِلَى ٱلْبُيُوتِ. ٢٠ 20
Then those of Pharaoh's servants who believed in Yahweh's message hurried to bring their slaves and cattle into the houses.
وَأَمَّا ٱلَّذِي لَمْ يُوَجِّهْ قَلْبَهُ إِلَى كَلِمَةِ ٱلرَّبِّ فَتَرَكَ عَبِيدَهُ وَمَوَاشِيَهُ فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ. ٢١ 21
But those who did not take Yahweh's message seriously left their slaves and cattle in the fields.
ثُمَّ قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «مُدَّ يَدَكَ نَحْوَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ لِيَكُونَ بَرَدٌ فِي كُلِّ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ: عَلَى ٱلنَّاسِ وَعَلَى ٱلْبَهَائِمِ وَعَلَى كُلِّ عُشْبِ ٱلْحَقْلِ فِي أَرْضِ مِصْرَ». ٢٢ 22
Then Yahweh said to Moses, “Reach out with your hand toward the sky so that there will be hail in all the land of Egypt, on people, on animals, and on all the plants in the fields throughout the land of Egypt.”
فَمَدَّ مُوسَى عَصَاهُ نَحْوَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ، فَأَعْطَى ٱلرَّبُّ رُعُودًا وَبَرَدًا، وَجَرَتْ نَارٌ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَأَمْطَرَ ٱلرَّبُّ بَرَدًا عَلَى أَرْضِ مِصْرَ. ٢٣ 23
Moses reached out with his staff toward the sky, and Yahweh sent thunder, hail, and lightning to the ground. He also rained hail on the land of Egypt.
فَكَانَ بَرَدٌ، وَنَارٌ مُتَوَاصِلَةٌ فِي وَسَطِ ٱلْبَرَدِ. شَيْءٌ عَظِيمٌ جِدًّا لَمْ يَكُنْ مِثْلُهُ فِي كُلِّ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ مُنْذُ صَارَتْ أُمَّةً. ٢٤ 24
So there were hail and lightning mixed with hail, very severe, such as had not been in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.
فَضَرَبَ ٱلْبَرَدُ فِي كُلِّ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ جَمِيعَ مَا فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ مِنَ ٱلنَّاسِ وَٱلْبَهَائِمِ. وَضَرَبَ ٱلْبَرَدُ جَمِيعَ عُشْبِ ٱلْحَقْلِ وَكَسَّرَ جَمِيعَ شَجَرِ ٱلْحَقْلِ. ٢٥ 25
Throughout all the land of Egypt, the hail struck everything in the fields, both people and animals. It struck every plant in the fields and broke every tree.
إِلَّا أَرْضَ جَاسَانَ حَيْثُ كَانَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ، فَلَمْ يَكُنْ فِيهَا بَرَدٌ. ٢٦ 26
Only in the land of Goshen, where the Israelites lived, was there no hail.
فَأَرْسَلَ فِرْعَوْنُ وَدَعَا مُوسَى وَهَارُونَ وَقَالَ لَهُمَا: «أَخْطَأْتُ هَذِهِ ٱلْمَرَّةَ. ٱلرَّبُّ هُوَ ٱلْبَارُّ وَأَنَا وَشَعْبِي ٱلْأَشْرَارُ. ٢٧ 27
Then Pharaoh sent men to summon Moses and Aaron. He said to them, “I have sinned this time. Yahweh is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.
صَلِّيَا إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ، وَكَفَى حُدُوثُ رُعُودِ ٱللهِ وَٱلْبَرَدُ، فَأُطْلِقَكُمْ وَلَا تَعُودُوا تَلْبَثُونَ». ٢٨ 28
Pray to Yahweh, because the mighty thunderbolts and hail are too much. I will let you go, and you will stay here no longer.”
فَقَالَ لَهُ مُوسَى: «عِنْدَ خُرُوجِي مِنَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ أَبْسِطُ يَدَيَّ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ، فَتَنْقَطِعُ ٱلرُّعُودُ وَلَا يَكُونُ ٱلْبَرَدُ أَيْضًا، لِكَيْ تَعْرِفَ أَنَّ لِلرَّبِّ ٱلْأَرْضَ. ٢٩ 29
Moses said to him, “As soon as I leave the city, I will spread my hands out to Yahweh. The thunder will stop, and there will not be any more hail. In this way you will know that the earth belongs to Yahweh.
وَأَمَّا أَنْتَ وَعَبِيدُكَ فَأَنَا أَعْلَمُ أَنَّكُمْ لَمْ تَخْشَوْا بَعْدُ مِنَ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلْإِلَهِ». ٣٠ 30
But as for you and your servants, I know that you do not yet really honor Yahweh God.”
فَٱلْكَتَّانُ وَٱلشَّعِيرُ ضُرِبَا. لِأَنَّ ٱلشَّعِيرَ كَانَ مُسْبِلًا وَٱلْكَتَّانُ مُبْزِرًا. ٣١ 31
Now the flax and the barley were ruined, for the barley was maturing in the ear, and the flax was in bloom.
وَأَمَّا ٱلْحِنْطَةُ وَٱلْقَطَانِيُّ فَلَمْ تُضْرَبْ لِأَنَّهَا كَانَتْ مُتَأَخِّرَةً. ٣٢ 32
But the wheat and the spelt were not harmed because they were later crops.
فَخَرَجَ مُوسَى مِنَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ مِنْ لَدُنْ فِرْعَوْنَ وَبَسَطَ يَدَيْهِ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ، فَٱنْقَطَعَتِ ٱلرُّعُودُ وَٱلْبَرَدُ وَلَمْ يَنْصَبَّ ٱلْمَطَرُ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٣٣ 33
When Moses had left Pharaoh and the city, he spread out his hands to Yahweh; the thunder and hail stopped, and the rain came down no more.
وَلَكِنْ فِرْعَوْنُ لَمَّا رَأَى أَنَّ ٱلْمَطَرَ وَٱلْبَرَدَ وَٱلرُّعُودَ ٱنْقَطَعَتْ، عَادَ يُخْطِئُ وَأَغْلَظَ قَلْبَهُ هُوَ وَعَبِيدُهُ. ٣٤ 34
When Pharaoh saw that the rain, hail, and thunder had ceased, he sinned again and hardened his heart, together with his servants.
فَٱشْتَدَّ قَلْبُ فِرْعَوْنَ فَلَمْ يُطْلِقْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ عَنْ يَدِ مُوسَى. ٣٥ 35
Pharaoh's heart was hardened, so he did not let the people of Israel go. This was the way that Yahweh had said to Moses that Pharaoh would act.
