وَكَانَ إِلَيَّ كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ قَائِلًا:١1
The LORD’s word came to me, saying,
«يَا ٱبْنَ آدَمَ، ٱجْعَلْ وَجْهَكَ نَحْوَ بَنِي عَمُّونَ وَتَنَبَّأْ عَلَيْهِمْ،٢2
“Son of man, set your face towards 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
Tell the children of Ammon, ‘Hear the word of the Lord GOD! The Lord GOD says, “Because you said, ‘Aha!’ against my sanctuary, when it was profaned, and against Eretz-Israel, when it was made desolate, and against the house of Judah, when 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 the east for a possession. They will set their encampments in you, and make their dwellings in you. They will eat your fruit and they will drink your milk.
وَأَجْعَلُ «رَبَّةَ» مَنَاخًا لِلْإِبِلِ، وَبَنِي عَمُّونَ مَرْبِضًا لِلْغَنَمِ، فَتَعْلَمُونَ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ.٥5
I will make Rabbah a stable for camels, and the children of Ammon a resting place for flocks. Then you will 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 the Lord GOD says: “Because you have clapped your hands, stamped with the feet, and rejoiced with all the contempt of your soul against Eretz-Israel,
فَلِذَلِكَ هَأَنَذَا أَمُدُّ يَدِي عَلَيْكَ وَأُسَلِّمُكَ غَنِيمَةً لِلْأُمَمِ، وَأَسْتَأْصِلُكَ مِنَ ٱلشُّعُوبِ، وَأُبِيدُكَ مِنَ ٱلْأَرَاضِي. أَخْرِبُكَ، فَتَعْلَمُ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ.٧7
therefore, behold, I have stretched out my hand on you, and will deliver you for a plunder to the nations. I will cut you off from the peoples, and I will cause you to perish out of the countries. I will destroy you. Then you will know that I am the LORD.”
«هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّ مُوآبَ وَسَعِيرَ يَقُولُونَ: هُوَذَا بَيْتُ يَهُوذَا مِثْلُ كُلِّ ٱلْأُمَمِ.٨8
“‘The Lord GOD says: “Because Moab and Seir say, ‘Behold, the house of Judah is like all the nations;’
لِذَلِكَ هَأَنَذَا أَفْتَحُ جَانِبَ مُوآبَ مِنَ ٱلْمُدُنِ، مِنْ مَدُنِهِ مِنْ أَقْصَاهَا، بَهَاءِ ٱلْأَرْضِ، بَيْتِ بَشِيمُوتَ وَبَعْلِ مَعُونَ وَقِرْيَتَايِمَ،٩9
therefore, behold, I will open the side of Moab from the cities, from his cities which are on his frontiers, the glory of the country, Beth Jeshimoth, Baal Meon, and Kiriathaim,
لِبَنِي ٱلْمَشْرِقِ عَلَى بَنِي عَمُّونَ، وَأَجْعَلُهُمْ مُلْكًا، لِكَيْلَا يُذْكَرَ بَنُو عَمُّونَ بَيْنَ ٱلْأُمَمِ.١٠10
to the children of the east, to go against the children of Ammon; and I will give them for a possession, that the children of Ammon may not be remembered amongst the nations.
وَبِمُوآبَ أُجْرِي أَحْكَامًا، فَيَعْلَمُونَ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ.١١11
I will execute judgements on Moab. Then they will 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
“‘The Lord GOD says: “Because Edom has dealt against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and has greatly offended, and taken revenge on them;”
لِذَلِكَ هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: وَأَمُدُّ يَدِي عَلَى أَدُومَ، وَأَقْطَعُ مِنْهَا ٱلْإِنْسَانَ وَٱلْحَيَوَانَ، وَأُصَيِّرُهَا خَرَابًا. مِنَ ٱلتَّيْمَنِ وَإِلَى دَدَانَ يَسْقُطُونَ بِٱلسَّيْفِ.١٣13
therefore the Lord GOD says, “I will stretch out my hand on Edom, and will cut off man and animal from it; and I will make it desolate from Teman. They will fall by the sword even to Dedan.
وَأَجْعَلُ نَقْمَتِي فِي أَدُومَ بِيَدِ شَعْبِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، فَيَفْعَلُونَ بِأَدُومَ كَغَضَبِي وَكَسَخَطِي، فَيَعْرِفُونَ نَقْمَتِي، يَقُولُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ.١٤14
I will lay my vengeance on Edom by the hand of my people Israel. They will do in Edom according to my anger and according to my wrath. Then they will know my vengeance,” says the Lord GOD.
«هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ قَدْ عَمِلُوا بِالِٱنْتِقَامِ، وَٱنْتَقَمُوا نَقْمَةً بِٱلْإِهَانَةِ إِلَى ٱلْمَوْتِ لِلْخَرَابِ مِنْ عَدَاوَةٍ أَبَدِيَّةٍ،١٥15
“‘The Lord GOD says: “Because the Philistines have taken revenge, and have taken vengeance with contempt of soul to destroy with perpetual hostility;”
فَلِذَلِكَ هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: هَأَنَذَا أَمُدُّ يَدِي عَلَى ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ وَأَسْتَأْصِلُ ٱلْكَرِيتِيِّينَ، وَأُهْلِكُ بَقِيَّةَ سَاحِلِ ٱلْبَحْرِ.١٦16
therefore the Lord GOD says, “Behold, I will stretch out my hand on the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethites, and destroy the remnant of the sea coast.
وَأُجْرِي عَلَيْهِمْ نَقْمَاتٍ عَظِيمَةً بِتَأْدِيبِ سَخَطٍ، فَيَعْلَمُونَ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ، إِذْ أَجْعَلُ نَقْمَتِي عَلَيْهِمْ».١٧17
I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes. Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I lay my vengeance on them.”’”
