حِزْقِيَال 2

فَقَالَ لِي: «يَا ٱبْنَ آدَمَ، قُمْ عَلَى قَدَمَيْكَ فَأَتَكَلَّمَ مَعَكَ». ١ 1
He said to me, “Son of man, stand up on your feet; then I will speak to you.”
فَدَخَلَ فِيَّ رُوحٌ لَمَّا تَكَلَّمَ مَعِي، وَأَقَامَنِي عَلَى قَدَمَيَّ فَسَمِعْتُ ٱلْمُتَكَلِّمَ مَعِي. ٢ 2
Then, as he spoke to me, the Spirit entered into me and set me on my feet, and I heard him speaking to me.
وَقَالَ لِي: «يَا ٱبْنَ آدَمَ، أَنَا مُرْسِلُكَ إِلَى بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، إِلَى أُمَّةٍ مُتَمَرِّدَةٍ قَدْ تَمَرَّدَتْ عَلَيَّ. هُمْ وَآبَاؤُهُمْ عَصَوْا عَلَيَّ إِلَى ذَاتِ هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ. ٣ 3
He said to me, “Son of man, I am sending you to the people of Israel, to rebellious nations that have rebelled against me—both they and their ancestors have sinned against me up to this very day!
وَٱلْبَنُونَ ٱلْقُسَاةُ ٱلْوُجُوهِ وَٱلصِّلَابُ ٱلْقُلُوبِ، أَنَا مُرْسِلُكَ إِلَيْهِمْ. فَتَقُولُ لَهُمْ: هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٤ 4
Their descendants have stubborn faces and hard hearts. I am sending you to them, and you will say to them, 'This is what the Lord Yahweh says.'
وَهُمْ إِنْ سَمِعُوا وَإِنِ ٱمْتَنَعُوا، لِأَنَّهُمْ بَيْتٌ مُتَمَرِّدٌ، فَإِنَّهُمْ يَعْلَمُونَ أَنَّ نَبِيًّا كَانَ بَيْنَهُمْ. ٥ 5
Either they will listen or they will not listen. They are a rebellious house, but they will at least know that a prophet has been among them.
أَمَّا أَنْتَ يَا ٱبْنَ آدَمَ فَلَا تَخَفْ مِنْهُمْ، وَمِنْ كَلَامِهِمْ لَا تَخَفْ، لِأَنَّهُمْ قَرِيسٌ وَسُلَّاءٌ لَدَيْكَ، وَأَنْتَ سَاكِنٌ بَيْنَ ٱلْعَقَارِبِ. مِنْ كَلَامِهِمْ لَا تَخَفْ وَمِنْ وُجُوهِهِمْ لَا تَرْتَعِبْ، لِأَنَّهُمْ بَيْتٌ مُتَمَرِّدٌ. ٦ 6
You, son of man, do not be afraid of them or their words. Do not be afraid, although you are with briers and thorns and although you live with scorpions. Do not fear their words or be dismayed by their faces, since they are a rebellious house.
وَتَتَكَلَّمُ مَعَهُمْ بِكَلَامِي، إِنْ سَمِعُوا وَإِنِ ٱمْتَنَعُوا، لِأَنَّهُمْ مُتَمَرِّدُونَ. ٧ 7
But you will speak my words to them, whether they listen or not, because they are most rebellious.
«وَأَنْتَ يَا ٱبْنَ آدَمَ، فَٱسْمَعْ مَا أَنَا مُكَلِّمُكَ بِهِ. لَا تَكُنْ مُتَمَرِّدًا كَٱلْبَيْتِ ٱلْمُتَمَرِّدِ. ٱفْتَحْ فَمَكَ وَكُلْ مَا أَنَا مُعْطِيكَهُ». ٨ 8
But you, son of man, listen to what I am saying to you. Do not be rebellious like that rebellious house. Open your mouth and eat what I am about to give to you!”
فَنَظَرْتُ وَإِذَا بِيَدٍ مَمْدُودَةٍ إِلَيَّ، وَإِذَا بِدَرْجِ سِفْرٍ فِيهَا. ٩ 9
Then I looked, and a hand was extended out to me; in it was a written scroll.
فَنَشَرَهُ أَمَامِي وَهُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ مِنْ دَاخِلٍ وَمِنْ قَفَاهُ، وَكُتِبَ فِيهِ مَرَاثٍ وَنَحِيبٌ وَوَيْلٌ. ١٠ 10
He spread it out before me; it had been written on both its front and back, and written on it were lamentations, mourning, and woe.
