وَكَانَ إِلَيَّ كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ قَائِلًا:١1
And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,
«يَا ٱبْنَ آدَمَ، ٱجْعَلْ وَجْهَكَ نَحْوَ بَنِي عَمُّونَ وَتَنَبَّأْ عَلَيْهِمْ،٢2
Son of man, set your face steadfastly against the children of Ammon, and prophesy against them;
وَقُلْ لِبَنِي عَمُّونَ: ٱسْمَعُوا كَلَامَ ٱلسَّيِّدِ ٱلرَّبِّ: هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّكِ قُلْتِ: هَهْ! عَلَى مَقْدِسِي لِأَنَّهُ تَنَجَّسَ، وَعَلَى أَرْضِ إِسْرَائِيلَ لِأَنَّهَا خَرِبَتْ، وَعَلَى بَيْتِ يَهُوذَا لِأَنَّهُمْ ذَهَبُوا إِلَى ٱلسَّبْيِ،٣3
and you shall say to the children of Ammon, Hear you the word of the Lord; thus says the Lord; Forasmuch as you have rejoiced against my sanctuary, because it was profaned; and against the land of Israel, because it was laid waste; and against the house of Juda, because they went into captivity;
فَلِذَلِكَ هَأَنَذَا أُسَلِّمُكِ لِبَنِي ٱلْمَشْرِقِ مِلْكًا، فَيُقِيمُونَ صِيَرَهُمْ فِيكِ، وَيَجْعَلُونَ مَسَاكِنَهُمْ فِيكِ. هُمْ يَأْكُلُونَ غَلَّتَكِ وَهُمْ يَشْرَبُونَ لَبَنَكِ.٤4
therefore, behold, I [will] deliver you to the children of Kedem for an inheritance, and they shall lodge in you with their stuff, and they shall pitch their tents in you: they shall eat your fruits, and they shall drink your milk.
وَأَجْعَلُ «رَبَّةَ» مَنَاخًا لِلْإِبِلِ، وَبَنِي عَمُّونَ مَرْبِضًا لِلْغَنَمِ، فَتَعْلَمُونَ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ.٥5
And I will give up the city of Ammon for camels' pastures, and the children of Ammon for a pasture of sheep: and you shall know that I am the Lord.
لِأَنَّهُ هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّكَ صَفَّقْتَ بِيَدَيْكَ وَخَبَطْتَ بِرِجْلَيْكَ وَفَرِحْتَ بِكُلِّ إِهَانَتِكَ لِلْمَوْتِ عَلَى أَرْضِ إِسْرَائِيلَ.٦6
For thus says the Lord; Because you have clapped your hands, and stamped with your foot, and heartily rejoiced against the land of Israel;
فَلِذَلِكَ هَأَنَذَا أَمُدُّ يَدِي عَلَيْكَ وَأُسَلِّمُكَ غَنِيمَةً لِلْأُمَمِ، وَأَسْتَأْصِلُكَ مِنَ ٱلشُّعُوبِ، وَأُبِيدُكَ مِنَ ٱلْأَرَاضِي. أَخْرِبُكَ، فَتَعْلَمُ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ.٧7
therefore I will stretch out my hand against you, and I will make you a spoil to the nations; and I will utterly destroy you from amongst the peoples, and I will completely cut you off from out of the countries: and you shall know that I am the Lord.
«هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّ مُوآبَ وَسَعِيرَ يَقُولُونَ: هُوَذَا بَيْتُ يَهُوذَا مِثْلُ كُلِّ ٱلْأُمَمِ.٨8
Thus says the Lord; Because Moab has said, Behold, are not the house of Israel and Juda like all the [other] nations?
لِذَلِكَ هَأَنَذَا أَفْتَحُ جَانِبَ مُوآبَ مِنَ ٱلْمُدُنِ، مِنْ مَدُنِهِ مِنْ أَقْصَاهَا، بَهَاءِ ٱلْأَرْضِ، بَيْتِ بَشِيمُوتَ وَبَعْلِ مَعُونَ وَقِرْيَتَايِمَ،٩9
Therefore, behold, I will weaken the shoulder of Moab from his frontier cities, [even] the choice land, the house of Bethasimuth above the fountain of the city, by the sea-side.
لِبَنِي ٱلْمَشْرِقِ عَلَى بَنِي عَمُّونَ، وَأَجْعَلُهُمْ مُلْكًا، لِكَيْلَا يُذْكَرَ بَنُو عَمُّونَ بَيْنَ ٱلْأُمَمِ.١٠10
I have given him the children of Kedem in addition to the children of Ammon for an inheritance, that there may be no remembrance of the children of Ammon.
وَبِمُوآبَ أُجْرِي أَحْكَامًا، فَيَعْلَمُونَ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ.١١11
And I will execute vengeance on Moab; and they shall know that I am the Lord.
«هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّ أَدُومَ قَدْ عَمِلَ بِالِٱنْتِقَامِ عَلَى بَيْتِ يَهُوذَا وَأَسَاءَ إِسَاءَةً وَٱنْتَقَمَ مِنْهُ،١٢12
Thus says the Lord; Because of what the Idumeans have done in taking vengeance on the house of Juda, and [because they] have remembered injuries, and have exacted full recompense;
لِذَلِكَ هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: وَأَمُدُّ يَدِي عَلَى أَدُومَ، وَأَقْطَعُ مِنْهَا ٱلْإِنْسَانَ وَٱلْحَيَوَانَ، وَأُصَيِّرُهَا خَرَابًا. مِنَ ٱلتَّيْمَنِ وَإِلَى دَدَانَ يَسْقُطُونَ بِٱلسَّيْفِ.١٣13
therefore thus says the Lord; I will also stretch out my hand upon Idumea, and will utterly destroy out of it man and beast; and will make it desolate; and they that are pursued out of Thaeman shall fall by the sword.
وَأَجْعَلُ نَقْمَتِي فِي أَدُومَ بِيَدِ شَعْبِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، فَيَفْعَلُونَ بِأَدُومَ كَغَضَبِي وَكَسَخَطِي، فَيَعْرِفُونَ نَقْمَتِي، يَقُولُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ.١٤14
And I will execute my vengeance on Idumea by the hand of my people Israel: and they shall deal in Idumea according to mine anger and according to my wrath, and they shall know my vengeance, says the Lord.
«هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ قَدْ عَمِلُوا بِالِٱنْتِقَامِ، وَٱنْتَقَمُوا نَقْمَةً بِٱلْإِهَانَةِ إِلَى ٱلْمَوْتِ لِلْخَرَابِ مِنْ عَدَاوَةٍ أَبَدِيَّةٍ،١٥15
Therefore thus says the Lord, Because the Philistines have wrought revengefully, and raised up vengeance rejoicing from their heart to destroy [the Israelites] to a man;
فَلِذَلِكَ هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: هَأَنَذَا أَمُدُّ يَدِي عَلَى ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ وَأَسْتَأْصِلُ ٱلْكَرِيتِيِّينَ، وَأُهْلِكُ بَقِيَّةَ سَاحِلِ ٱلْبَحْرِ.١٦16
therefore thus says the Lord; Behold, I [will] stretch out my hand upon the Philistines, and will utterly destroy the Cretans, and will cut off the remnant that dwell by the sea-coast.
وَأُجْرِي عَلَيْهِمْ نَقْمَاتٍ عَظِيمَةً بِتَأْدِيبِ سَخَطٍ، فَيَعْلَمُونَ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ، إِذْ أَجْعَلُ نَقْمَتِي عَلَيْهِمْ».١٧17
And I will execute great vengeance upon them; and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I have brought my vengeance upon them.
