حِزْقِيَال 20

وَكَانَ فِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلسَّابِعَةِ، فِي ٱلشَّهْرِ ٱلْخَامِسِ، فِي ٱلْعَاشِرِ مِنَ ٱلشَّهْرِ، أَنَّ أُنَاسًا مِنْ شُيُوخِ إِسْرَائِيلَ جَاءُوا لِيَسْأَلُوا ٱلرَّبَّ، فَجَلَسُوا أَمَامِي. ١ 1
It came about in the seventh year, on the tenth day of the fifth month, that elders of Israel came to inquire of Yahweh and sat before me.
فَكَانَ إِلَيَّ كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ قَائِلًا: ٢ 2
Then the word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
«يَا ٱبْنَ آدَمَ، كَلِّمْ شُيُوخَ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَقُلْ لَهُمْ: هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: هَلْ أَنْتُمْ آتُونَ لِتَسْأَلُونِي؟ حَيٌّ أَنَا، لَا أُسْأَلُ مِنْكُمْ، يَقُولُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٣ 3
“Son of man, declare to the elders of Israel and say to them, 'The Lord Yahweh says this: Have you come to inquire of me? As I live, I will not be inquired of by you!—this is the Lord Yahweh's declaration.'
هَلْ تَدِينُهُمْ؟ هَلْ تَدِينُ يَا ٱبْنَ آدَمَ؟ عَرِّفْهُمْ رَجَاسَاتِ آبَائِهِمْ، ٤ 4
Will you judge them? Will you judge, son of man? Let them know about their fathers' abominations.
وَقُلْ لَهُمْ: هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: فِي يَوْمِ ٱخْتَرْتُ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَرَفَعْتُ يَدِي لِنَسْلِ بَيْتِ يَعْقُوبَ، وَعَرَّفْتُهُمْ نَفْسِي فِي أَرْضِ مِصْرَ، وَرَفَعْتُ لَهُمْ يَدِي قَائِلًا: أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكُمْ، ٥ 5
Say to them, 'The Lord Yahweh says this: On the day that I chose Israel and raised my hand to swear an oath to the descendants of the house of Jacob, and made myself known to them in the land of Egypt, when I raised my hand to swear an oath to them. I said, “I am Yahweh your God”—
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ رَفَعْتُ لَهُمْ يَدِي لِأُخْرِجَهُمْ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي تَجَسَّسْتُهَا لَهُمْ، تَفِيضُ لَبَنًا وَعَسَلًا، هِيَ فَخْرُ كُلِّ ٱلْأَرَاضِي، ٦ 6
on that day I raised my hand to swear an oath to them that I would bring them out of the land of Egypt into a land that I had carefully selected for them. It was flowing with milk and honey; it was the most beautiful ornament among all the lands.
وَقُلْتُ لَهُمُ: ٱطْرَحُوا كُلُّ إِنْسَانٍ مِنْكُمْ أَرْجَاسَ عَيْنَيْهِ، وَلَا تَتَنَجَّسُوا بِأَصْنَامِ مِصْرَ. أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكُمْ. ٧ 7
I said to them, “Let each man throw away the detestable things from before his eyes and the idols of Egypt. Do not make yourselves unclean; I am Yahweh your God.”
فَتَمَرَّدُوا عَلَيَّ وَلَمْ يُرِيدُوا أَنْ يَسْمَعُوا لِي، وَلَمْ يَطْرَحِ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ مِنْهُمْ أَرْجَاسَ عَيْنَيْهِ، وَلَمْ يَتْرُكُوا أَصْنَامَ مِصْرَ. فَقُلْتُ: إِنِّي أَسْكُبُ رِجْزِي عَلَيْهِمْ لِأُتِمَّ عَلَيْهِمْ سَخَطِي فِي وَسْطِ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ. ٨ 8
But they rebelled against me and were unwilling to listen to me. Each man did not throw away the detestable things from before his eyes nor forsake the idols of Egypt, so I determined to pour out my fury upon them to satisfy my wrath among them in the middle of the land of Egypt.
لَكِنْ صَنَعْتُ لِأَجْلِ ٱسْمِي لِكَيْلَا يَتَنَجَّسَ أَمَامَ عُيُونِ ٱلْأُمَمِ ٱلَّذِينَ هُمْ فِي وَسْطِهِمِ، ٱلَّذِينَ عَرَّفْتُهُمْ نَفْسِي أَمَامَ عُيُونِهِمْ بِإِخْرَاجِهِمْ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ. ٩ 9
I acted for my name's sake so it would not be profaned in the eyes of the nations among whom they were staying. I made myself known to them, in their eyes, by bringing them out of the land of Egypt.
فَأَخْرَجْتُهُمْ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ وَأَتَيْتُ بِهِمْ إِلَى ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ. ١٠ 10
So I sent them out of the land of Egypt and brought them into the wilderness.
وَأَعْطَيْتُهُمْ فَرَائِضِي وَعَرَّفْتُهُمْ أَحْكَامِي ٱلَّتِي إِنْ عَمِلَهَا إِنْسَانٌ يَحْيَا بِهَا. ١١ 11
Then I gave them my statutes and made my decrees known to them, by which a man will live if he obeys them.
وَأَعْطَيْتُهُمْ أَيْضًا سُبُوتِي لِتَكُونَ عَلَامَةً بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَهُمْ، لِيَعْلَمُوا أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ مُقَدِّسُهُمْ. ١٢ 12
I also gave them my Sabbaths as a sign between myself and them, for them to know that I am Yahweh who makes them holy.
«فَتَمَرَّدَ عَلَيَّ بَيْتُ إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ. لَمْ يَسْلُكُوا فِي فَرَائِضِي وَرَفَضُوا أَحْكَامِي ٱلَّتِي إِنْ عَمِلَهَا إِنْسَانٌ يَحْيَا بِهَا، وَنَجَّسُوا سُبُوتِي كَثِيرًا. فَقُلْتُ: إِنِّي أَسْكُبُ رِجْزِي عَلَيْهِمْ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ لِإِفْنَائِهِمْ. ١٣ 13
But the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness. They did not walk in my statutes; instead, they rejected my decrees, by which a man will live if he obeys them. They greatly profaned my Sabbaths, so I said I would pour out my fury upon them in the wilderness in order to end them.
لَكِنْ صَنَعْتُ لِأَجْلِ ٱسْمِي لِكَيْلَا يَتَنَجَّسَ أَمَامَ عُيُونِ ٱلْأُمَمِ ٱلَّذِينَ أَخْرَجْتُهُمْ أَمَامَ عُيُونِهِمْ. ١٤ 14
But I acted for my name's sake so it would not be profaned in the eyes of the nations, in whose sight I had brought them out of Egypt.
وَرَفَعْتُ أَيْضًا يَدِي لَهُمْ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ بِأَنِّي لَا آتِي بِهِمْ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَيْتُهُمْ إِيَّاهَا تَفِيضُ لَبَنًا وَعَسَلًا، هِيَ فَخْرُ كُلِّ ٱلْأَرَاضِي. ١٥ 15
So I myself also raised my hand to swear an oath to them in the wilderness not to bring them into the land that I had been going to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey, which was the most beautiful ornament among all the lands.
لِأَنَّهُمْ رَفَضُوا أَحْكَامِي وَلَمْ يَسْلُكُوا فِي فَرَائِضِي، بَلْ نَجَّسُوا سُبُوتِي، لِأَنَّ قَلْبَهُمْ ذَهَبَ وَرَاءَ أَصْنَامِهِمْ. ١٦ 16
I swore this because they had rejected my decrees and did not walk in my statutes, and they profaned my Sabbaths, since their hearts walked after their idols.
لَكِنَّ عَيْنِي أَشْفَقَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ عَنْ إِهْلَاكِهِمْ، فَلَمْ أُفْنِهِمْ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ. ١٧ 17
But my eye spared them from their destruction and I did not annihilate them in the wilderness.
وَقُلْتُ لِأَبْنَائِهِمْ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ: لَا تَسْلُكُوا فِي فَرَائِضِ آبَائِكُمْ، وَلَا تَحْفَظُوا أَحْكَامَهُمْ، وَلَا تَتَنَجَّسُوا بِأَصْنَامِهِمْ. ١٨ 18
I said to their children in the wilderness, “Do not walk in the statutes of your fathers, or keep their rules, or defile yourselves with their idols.
أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكُمْ، فَٱسْلُكُوا فِي فَرَائِضِي وَٱحْفَظُوا أَحْكَامِي وَٱعْمَلُوا بِهَا، ١٩ 19
I am Yahweh your God, walk in my statutes; keep my decrees and obey them.
وَقَدِّسُوا سُبُوتِي فَتَكُونَ عَلَامَةً بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَكُمْ، لِتَعْلَمُوا أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكُمْ. ٢٠ 20
Keep my Sabbaths holy so that they will be a sign between me and you, so that you will know that I am Yahweh your God.”
فَتَمَرَّدَ ٱلْأَبْنَاءُ عَلَيَّ. لَمْ يَسْلُكُوا فِي فَرَائِضِي وَلَمْ يَحْفَظُوا أَحْكَامِي لِيَعْمَلُوهَا، ٱلَّتِي إِنْ عَمِلَهَا إِنْسَانٌ يَحْيَا بِهَا، وَنَجَّسُوا سُبُوتِي. فَقُلْتُ: إِنِّي أَسْكُبُ رِجْزِي عَلَيْهِمْ لِأُتِمَّ سَخَطِي عَلَيْهِمْ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ. ٢١ 21
But their sons and daughters rebelled against me. They did not walk in my statutes or keep my decrees, by which a man might live if he obeys them. They profaned my Sabbaths, so I determined to pour out my fury upon them to satisfy my wrath against them in the wilderness.
ثُمَّ كَفَفْتُ يَدِي وَصَنَعْتُ لِأَجْلِ ٱسْمِي لِكَيْلَا يَتَنَجَّسَ أَمَامَ عُيُونِ ٱلْأُمَمِ ٱلَّذِينَ أَخْرَجْتُهُمْ أَمَامَ عُيُونِهِمْ. ٢٢ 22
But I turned my hand away and acted for my name's sake, so it would not be profaned in the eyes of the nations in whose sight I had brought out the Israelites.
وَرَفَعْتُ أَيْضًا يَدِي لَهُمْ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ لِأُفَرِّقَهُمْ فِي ٱلْأُمَمِ وَأُذَرِّيَهُمْ فِي ٱلْأَرَاضِي، ٢٣ 23
I myself also lifted up my hand to swear to them in the wilderness, that I would scatter them among the nations and disperse them among the lands.
لِأَنَّهُمْ لَمْ يَصْنَعُوا أَحْكَامِي، بَلْ رَفَضُوا فَرَائِضِي، وَنَجَّسُوا سُبُوتِي، وَكَانَتْ عُيُونُهُمْ وَرَاءَ أَصْنَامِ آبَائِهِمْ. ٢٤ 24
I decided to do this since they had not obeyed my decrees, and since they had rejected my statutes and profaned my Sabbaths. Their eyes were longing after their fathers' idols.
وَأَعْطَيْتُهُمْ أَيْضًا فَرَائِضَ غَيْرَ صَالِحَةٍ، وَأَحْكَامًا لَا يَحْيَوْنَ بِهَا، ٢٥ 25
Then I also gave them statutes that were not good, and decrees by which they could not live.
وَنَجَّسْتُهُمْ بِعَطَايَاهُمْ إِذْ أَجَازُوا فِي ٱلنَّارِ كُلَّ فَاتِحِ رَحْمٍ، لِأُبِيدَهُمْ، حَتَّى يَعْلَمُوا أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ. ٢٦ 26
I declared them to be unclean through their gifts—they made a sacrifice of every firstborn of the womb and caused them to pass through the fire—that I might fill them with horror so they will know that I am Yahweh!'
«لِأَجْلِ ذَلِكَ كَلِّمْ بَيْتَ إِسْرَائِيلَ يَا ٱبْنَ آدَمَ، وَقُلْ لَهُمْ: هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: فِي هَذَا أَيْضًا جَدَّفَ عَلَيَّ آبَاؤُكُمْ، إِذْ خَانُونِي خِيَانَةً ٢٧ 27
Therefore, son of man, speak to the house of Israel and say to them, 'The Lord Yahweh says this: In this also your fathers blasphemed me when they were unfaithful to me.
لَمَّا أَتَيْتُ بِهِمْ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي رَفَعْتُ لَهُمْ يَدِي لِأُعْطِيَهُمْ إِيَّاهَا، فَرَأَوْا كُلَّ تَلٍّ عَالٍ وَكُلَّ شَجَرَةٍ غَبْيَاءَ، فَذَبَحُوا هُنَاكَ ذَبَائِحَهُمْ، وَقَرَّبُوا هُنَاكَ قَرَابِينَهُمُ ٱلْمُغِيظَةَ، وَقَدَّمُوا هُنَاكَ رَوَائِحَ سُرُورِهِمْ، وَسَكَبُوا هُنَاكَ سَكَائِبَهُمْ. ٢٨ 28
When I brought them into the land that I had sworn to give them, and then whenever they saw any high hill and leafy tree, they offered their sacrifices, they provoked me by their offerings, and there they also burned their fragrant incense and poured out their drink offerings.
فَقُلْتُ لَهُمْ: مَا هَذِهِ ٱلْمُرْتَفَعَةُ ٱلَّتِي تَأْتُونَ إِلَيْهَا؟ فَدُعِيَ ٱسْمُهَا «مُرْتَفَعَةً» إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ. ٢٩ 29
Then I said to them, “What is this high place where you bring offerings there?” So the name is called Bamah to this day.'
«لِذَلِكَ قُلْ لِبَيْتِ إِسْرَائِيلَ: هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: هَلْ تَنَجَّسْتُمْ بِطَرِيقِ آبَائِكُمْ، وَزَنَيْتُمْ وَرَاءَ أَرْجَاسِهِمْ؟ ٣٠ 30
Therefore say to the house of Israel, 'The Lord Yahweh says this: Why do you make yourselves unclean with the ways of your fathers? So why do you act like prostitutes, searching for disgusting things?
وَبِتَقْدِيمِ عَطَايَاكُمْ وَإِجَازَةِ أَبْنَائِكُمْ فِي ٱلنَّارِ، تَتَنَجَّسُونَ بِكُلِّ أَصْنَامِكُمْ إِلَى ٱلْيَوْمِ. فَهَلْ أُسْأَلُ مِنْكُمْ يَا بَيْتَ إِسْرَائِيلَ؟ حَيٌّ أَنَا، يَقُولُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ، لَا أُسْأَلُ مِنْكُمْ. ٣١ 31
When you offer up your gifts—when you cause your sons to pass through the fire—to this day you defile yourselves with all your idols. So why should I let you seek me, house of Israel? As I live—this is the Lord Yahweh's declaration—I will not allow you to seek me.
وَٱلَّذِي يَخْطُرُ بِبَالِكُمْ لَنْ يَكُونَ، إِذْ تَقُولُونَ: نَكُونُ كَٱلْأُمَمِ، كَقَبَائِلِ ٱلْأَرَاضِي فَنَعْبُدُ ٱلْخَشَبَ وَٱلْحَجَرَ. ٣٢ 32
The thought that is forming in your mind will never happen. You say, “Let us be like the other nations, like the clans in the other lands who worship wood and stone.”
حَيٌّ أَنَا، يَقُولُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ، إِنِّي بِيَدٍ قَوِيَّةٍ وَبِذِرَاعٍ مَمْدُودَةٍ، وَبِسَخَطٍ مَسْكُوبٍ أَمْلِكُ عَلَيْكُمْ. ٣٣ 33
As I live—this is the Lord Yahweh's declaration—I will certainly reign over you with a mighty hand, a raised arm, and fury that will be poured out on you.
وَأُخْرِجُكُمْ مِنْ بَيْنِ ٱلشُّعُوبِ، وَأَجْمَعُكُمْ مِنَ ٱلْأَرَاضِي ٱلَّتِي تَفَرَّقْتُمْ فِيهَا بِيَدٍ قَوِيَّةٍ وَبِذِرَاعٍ مَمْدُودَةٍ، وَبِسَخَطٍ مَسْكُوبٍ. ٣٤ 34
I will bring you out from the other peoples and will gather you out of the countries among whom you have been scattered. I will do this with a mighty hand and with fury poured out.
وَآتِي بِكُمْ إِلَى بَرِّيَّةِ ٱلشُّعُوبِ، وَأُحَاكِمُكُمْ هُنَاكَ وَجْهًا لِوَجْهٍ. ٣٥ 35
Then I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples, and there I will judge you face to face.
كَمَا حَاكَمْتُ آبَاءَكُمْ فِي بَرِّيَّةِ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ، كَذَلِكَ أُحَاكِمُكُمْ، يَقُولُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٣٦ 36
As I judged your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so also I will judge you—this is the Lord Yahweh's declaration.
وَأُمِرُّكُمْ تَحْتَ ٱلْعَصَا، وَأُدْخِلُكُمْ فِي رِبَاطِ ٱلْعَهْدِ. ٣٧ 37
I will cause you to pass under my rod, and I will make you obey the requirements of the covenant.
وَأَعْزِلُ مِنْكُمُ ٱلْمُتَمَرِّدِينَ وَٱلْعُصَاةَ عَلَيَّ. أُخْرِجُهُمْ مِنْ أَرْضِ غُرْبَتِهِمْ وَلَا يَدْخُلُونَ أَرْضَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، فَتَعْلَمُونَ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ. ٣٨ 38
I will purge from among you the rebels and those who revolt against me. I will send them out from the land where they are staying as foreigners, but they will not enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am Yahweh.
«أَمَّا أَنْتُمْ يَا بَيْتَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، فَهَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: ٱذْهَبُوا ٱعْبُدُوا كُلُّ إِنْسَانٍ أَصْنَامَهُ. وَبَعْدُ إِنْ لَمْ تَسْمَعُوا لِي فَلَا تُنَجِّسُوا ٱسْمِي ٱلْقُدُّوسَ بَعْدُ بِعَطَايَاكُمْ وَبِأَصْنَامِكُمْ. ٣٩ 39
So to you, house of Israel, the Lord Yahweh says this: Each of you should go to his own idols. Worship them if you will refuse to listen to me, but you must no longer profane my holy name with your gifts and your idols.
لِأَنَّهُ فِي جَبَلِ قُدْسِي، فِي جَبَلِ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلْعَالِي، يَقُولُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ، هُنَاكَ يَعْبُدُنِي كُلُّ بَيْتِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، كُلُّهُمْ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ. هُنَاكَ أَرْضَى عَنْهُمْ، وَهُنَاكَ أَطْلُبُ تَقْدِمَاتِكُمْ وَبَاكُورَاتِ جِزَاكُمْ مَعَ جَمِيعِ مُقَدَّسَاتِكُمْ. ٤٠ 40
For on my holy mountain, on the mountain peak of Israel—this is the Lord Yahweh's declaration—all of the house of Israel will worship me there in the land. I will be pleased to require your offerings there, and also the firstfruits of your tribute with all your holy things.
بِرَائِحَةِ سُرُورِكُمْ أَرْضَى عَنْكُمْ، حِينَ أُخْرِجُكُمْ مِنْ بَيْنِ ٱلشُّعُوبِ، وَأَجْمَعُكُمْ مِنَ ٱلْأَرَاضِي ٱلَّتِي تَفَرَّقْتُمْ فِيهَا، وَأَتَقَدَّسُ فِيكُمْ أَمَامَ عُيُونِ ٱلْأُمَمِ، ٤١ 41
I will accept you like fragrant incense when I bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you have been scattered. I will show myself as holy among you for the nations to see.
فَتَعْلَمُونَ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ، حِينَ آتِي بِكُمْ إِلَى أَرْضِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي رَفَعْتُ يَدِي لِأُعْطِي آبَاءَكُمْ إِيَّاهَا. ٤٢ 42
Then, when I bring you to the land of Israel, to the land that I have lifted up my hand to swear to give to your fathers, you will know that I am Yahweh.
وَهُنَاكَ تَذْكُرُونَ طُرُقَكُمْ وَكُلَّ أَعْمَالِكُمُ ٱلَّتِي تَنَجَّسْتُمْ بِهَا، وَتَمْقُتُونَ أَنْفُسَكُمْ لِجَمِيعِ ٱلشُّرُورِ ٱلَّتِي فَعَلْتُمْ. ٤٣ 43
There you will call to mind your conduct and all of your deeds by which you defiled yourselves, and you will despise yourselves in your own eyes for all your evil deeds that you have done.
فَتَعْلَمُونَ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِذَا فَعَلْتُ بِكُمْ مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱسْمِي. لَا كَطُرُقِكُمُ ٱلشِّرِّيرَةِ، وَلَا كَأَعْمَالِكُمُ ٱلْفَاسِدَةِ يَا بَيْتَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، يَقُولُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ». ٤٤ 44
So you will know that I am Yahweh when I do this to you because of my name's sake, and not because of your evil deeds, and not because of your corrupt deeds, house of Israel—this is the Lord Yahweh's declaration.'”
وَكَانَ إِلَيَّ كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ قَائِلًا: ٤٥ 45
Then the word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
«يَا ٱبْنَ آدَمَ، ٱجْعَلْ وَجْهَكَ نَحْوَ ٱلتَّيْمَنِ، وَتَكَلَّمْ نَحْوَ ٱلْجَنُوبِ، وَتَنَبَّأْ عَلَى وَعْرِ ٱلْحَقْلِ فِي ٱلْجَنُوبِ، ٤٦ 46
“Son of man, set your face toward the southern lands, and speak against the south; prophesy against the forest of the Negev.
وَقُلْ لِوَعْرِ ٱلْجَنُوبِ: ٱسْمَعْ كَلَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ. هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: هَأَنَذَا أُضْرِمُ فِيكَ نَارًا فَتَأْكُلُ كُلَّ شَجَرَةٍ خَضْرَاءَ فِيكَ وَكُلَّ شَجَرَةٍ يَابِسَةٍ. لَا يُطْفَأُ لَهِيبُهَا ٱلْمُلْتَهِبُ، وَتُحْرَقُ بِهَا كُلُّ ٱلْوُجُوهِ مِنَ ٱلْجَنُوبِ إِلَى ٱلشِّمَالِ. ٤٧ 47
Say to the forest of the Negev, 'This is Yahweh's declaration—the Lord Yahweh says this: See, I will set a fire among you. It will devour every fresh tree and every dried tree among you. The fiery flame will not be quenched; every face from the south to the north will be burned.
فَيَرَى كُلُّ بَشَرٍ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ أَضْرَمْتُهَا. لَا تُطْفَأُ». ٤٨ 48
Then all flesh will see that I am Yahweh when I light the fire, and it will not be quenched.'”
فَقُلْتُ: «آهِ يَا سَيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ! هُمْ يَقُولُونَ: أَمَا يُمَثِّلُ هُوَ أَمْثَالًا؟». ٤٩ 49
Then I said, “Alas! Lord Yahweh, they are saying of me, 'Is he not a mere teller of parables?'”
