حِزْقِيَال 1

كَانَ فِي سَنَةِ ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ، فِي ٱلشَّهْرِ ٱلرَّابِعِ، فِي ٱلْخَامِسِ مِنَ ٱلشَّهْرِ، وَأَنَا بَيْنَ ٱلْمَسْبِيِّينَ عِنْدَ نَهْرِ خَابُورَ، أَنَّ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ ٱنْفَتَحَتْ، فَرَأَيْتُ رُؤَى ٱللهِ. ١ 1
In the thirtieth year, the fourth month, and the fifth day of the month, it came about that I was living among the captives by the Kebar Canal. The heavens opened, and I saw visions of God.
فِي ٱلْخَامِسِ مِنَ ٱلشَّهْرِ، وَهِيَ ٱلسَّنَةُ ٱلْخَامِسَةُ مِنْ سَبْيِ يُويَاكِينَ ٱلْمَلِكِ، ٢ 2
On the fifth day of that month—it was the fifth year of the exile of King Jehoiachin—
صَارَ كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى حِزْقِيَالَ ٱلْكَاهِنِ ٱبْنِ بُوزِي فِي أَرْضِ ٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ عِنْدَ نَهْرِ خَابُورَ. وَكَانَتْ عَلَيْهِ هُنَاكَ يَدُ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٣ 3
the word of Yahweh came to Ezekiel son of Buzi the priest, in the land of the Chaldeans by the Kebar Canal, and the hand of Yahweh was upon him there.
فَنَظَرْتُ وَإِذَا بِرِيحٍ عَاصِفَةٍ جَاءَتْ مِنَ ٱلشِّمَالِ. سَحَابَةٌ عَظِيمَةٌ وَنَارٌ مُتَوَاصِلَةٌ وَحَوْلَهَا لَمَعَانٌ، وَمِنْ وَسْطِهَا كَمَنْظَرِ ٱلنُّحَاسِ ٱللَّامِعِ مِنْ وَسْطِ ٱلنَّارِ. ٤ 4
Then I looked, and there was a windstorm coming from the north; a great cloud with fire flashing within it and brightness surrounding it and inside of it, and the fire was the color of amber inside the cloud.
وَمِنْ وَسْطِهَا شِبْهُ أَرْبَعَةِ حَيَوَانَاتٍ. وَهَذَا مَنْظَرُهَا: لَهَا شِبْهُ إِنْسَانٍ. ٥ 5
In the middle was the likeness of four living creatures. This was their appearance: They had the likeness of a man,
وَلِكُلِّ وَاحِدٍ أَرْبَعَةُ أَوْجُهٍ، وَلِكُلِّ وَاحِدٍ أَرْبَعَةُ أَجْنِحَةٍ. ٦ 6
but they had four faces each, and each of the creatures had four wings.
وَأَرْجُلُهَا أَرْجُلٌ قَائِمَةٌ، وَأَقْدَامُ أَرْجُلِهَا كَقَدَمِ رِجْلِ ٱلْعِجْلِ، وَبَارِقَةٌ كَمَنْظَرِ ٱلنُّحَاسِ ٱلْمَصْقُولِ. ٧ 7
Their legs were straight, but the soles of their feet were like the hooves of a calf that shone like polished bronze.
وَأَيْدِي إِنْسَانٍ تَحْتَ أَجْنِحَتِهَا عَلَى جَوَانِبِهَا ٱلْأَرْبَعَةِ. وَوُجُوهُهَا وَأَجْنِحَتُهَا لِجَوَانِبِهَا ٱلْأَرْبَعَةِ. ٨ 8
Yet they had human hands under their wings on all four sides. For all four, their faces and wings were like this:
وَأَجْنِحَتُهَا مُتَّصِلَةٌ ٱلْوَاحِدُ بِأَخِيهِ. لَمْ تَدُرْ عِنْدَ سَيْرِهَا. كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ يَسِيرُ إِلَى جِهَةِ وَجْهِهِ. ٩ 9
their wings were touching the wings of the next creature, and they did not turn as they went; instead, each one went straight forward.
أَمَّا شِبْهُ وُجُوهِهَا فَوَجْهُ إِنْسَانٍ وَوَجْهُ أَسَدٍ لِلْيَمِينِ لِأَرْبَعَتِهَا، وَوَجْهُ ثَوْرٍ مِنَ ٱلشِّمَالِ لِأَرْبَعَتِهَا، وَوَجْهُ نَسْرٍ لِأَرْبَعَتِهَا. ١٠ 10
The likeness of their faces was like the face of a man. The four of them had the face of a lion to the right side, and the four of them had the face of an ox on the left side. They four had also the face of an eagle.
فَهَذِهِ أَوْجُهُهَا. أَمَّا أَجْنِحَتُهَا فَمَبْسُوطَةٌ مِنْ فَوْقُ. لِكُلِّ وَاحِدٍ ٱثْنَانِ مُتَّصِلَانِ أَحَدُهُمَا بِأَخِيهِ، وَٱثْنَانِ يُغَطِّيَانِ أَجْسَامَهَا. ١١ 11
Their faces were like that, and their wings were spread out above, so that each creature had a pair of wings that touched another creature's wing, and also a pair of wings that covered their bodies.
وَكُلُّ وَاحِدٍ كَانَ يَسِيرُ إِلَى جِهَةِ وَجْهِهِ. إِلَى حَيْثُ تَكُونُ ٱلرُّوحُ لِتَسِيرَ تَسِيرُ. لَمْ تَدُرْ عِنْدَ سَيْرِهَا. ١٢ 12
Each went straight forward, so that wherever the Spirit directed them to go, they went without turning.
أَمَّا شِبْهُ ٱلْحَيَوَانَاتِ فَمَنْظَرُهَا كَجَمْرِ نَارٍ مُتَّقِدَةٍ، كَمَنْظَرِ مَصَابِيحَ هِيَ سَالِكَةٌ بَيْنَ ٱلْحَيَوَانَاتِ. وَلِلنَّارِ لَمَعَانٌ، وَمِنَ ٱلنَّارِ كَانَ يَخْرُجُ بَرْقٌ. ١٣ 13
As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches; bright fire also moved about among the creatures, and there were flashes of lightning.
ٱلْحَيَوَانَاتُ رَاكِضَةٌ وَرَاجِعَةٌ كَمَنْظَرِ ٱلْبَرْقِ. ١٤ 14
The living creatures were moving swiftly back and forth, and they had the appearance of lightning!
فَنَظَرْتُ ٱلْحَيَوَانَاتِ وَإِذَا بَكَرَةٌ وَاحِدَةٌ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ بِجَانِبِ ٱلْحَيَوَانَاتِ بِأَوْجُهِهَا ٱلْأَرْبَعَةِ. ١٥ 15
Then I looked at the living creatures; and I saw one wheel on the ground beside each of living creatures with its four faces.
مَنْظَرُ ٱلْبَكَرَاتِ وَصَنْعَتُهَا كَمَنْظَرِ ٱلزَّبَرْجَدِ. وَلِلْأَرْبَعِ شَكْلٌ وَاحِدٌ، وَمَنْظَرُهَا وَصَنْعَتُهَا كَأَنَّهَا كَانَتْ بَكَرَةً وَسْطِ بَكَرَةٍ. ١٦ 16
This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: Each wheel was like beryl, and the four had the same likeness; their appearance and structure was like a wheel intersecting another wheel.
لَمَّا سَارَتْ، سَارَتْ عَلَى جَوَانِبِهَا ٱلْأَرْبَعَةِ. لَمْ تَدُرْ عِنْدَ سَيْرِهَا. ١٧ 17
As they moved, they went in any of their four directions, without turning as they went.
أَمَّا أُطُرُهَا فَعَالِيَةٌ وَمُخِيفَةٌ. وَأُطُرُهَا مَلْآنَةٌ عُيُونًا حَوَالَيْهَا لِلْأَرْبَعِ. ١٨ 18
As for their rims, they were high and fearsome, for the rims were full of eyes round about.
فَإِذَا سَارَتِ ٱلْحَيَوَانَاتُ، سَارَتِ ٱلْبَكَرَاتُ بِجَانِبِهَا، وَإِذَا ٱرْتَفَعَتِ ٱلْحَيَوَانَاتُ عَنِ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱرْتَفَعَتِ ٱلْبَكَرَاتُ. ١٩ 19
Whenever the living creatures moved, the wheels moved beside them. When the living creatures rose up from the earth, the wheels also rose up.
إِلَى حَيْثُ تَكُونُ ٱلرُّوحُ لِتَسِيرَ يَسِيرُونَ، إِلَى حَيْثُ ٱلرُّوحُ لِتَسِيرَ وَٱلْبَكَرَاتُ تَرْتَفِعُ مَعَهَا، لِأَنَّ رُوحَ ٱلْحَيَوَانَاتِ كَانَتْ فِي ٱلْبَكَرَاتِ. ٢٠ 20
Wherever the Spirit would go, they went, and the wheels rose up beside them, for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.
فَإِذَا سَارَتْ تِلْكَ سَارَتْ هَذِهِ، وَإِذَا وَقَفَتْ تِلْكَ وَقَفَتْ. وَإِذَا ٱرْتَفَعَتْ تِلْكَ عَنِ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱرْتَفَعَتِ ٱلْبَكَرَاتُ مَعَهَا، لِأَنَّ رُوحَ ٱلْحَيَوَانَاتِ كَانَتْ فِي ٱلْبَكَرَاتِ. ٢١ 21
Whenever the creatures moved, the wheels also moved; and when the creatures stood still, the wheels stood still; when the creatures rose up from the earth, the wheels rose up beside them, because the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.
وَعَلَى رُؤُوسِ ٱلْحَيَوَانَاتِ شِبْهُ مُقَبَّبٍ كَمَنْظَرِ ٱلْبِلَّوْرِ ٱلْهَائِلِ مُنْتَشِرًا عَلَى رُؤُوسِهَا مِنْ فَوْقُ. ٢٢ 22
Over the heads of the living creatures was the likeness of an expansive dome; it looked like awe-inspiring crystal stretched out over their heads above.
وَتَحْتَ ٱلْمُقَبَّبِ أَجْنِحَتُهَا مُسْتَقِيمَةٌ ٱلْوَاحِدُ نَحْوَ أَخِيهِ. لِكُلِّ وَاحِدٍ ٱثْنَانِ يُغَطِّيَانِ مِنْ هُنَا، وَلِكُلِّ وَاحِدٍ ٱثْنَانِ يُغَطِّيَانِ مِنْ هُنَاكَ أَجْسَامَهَا. ٢٣ 23
Beneath the dome, each one of the creature's wings stretched out straight and touched another creature's wings. Each of the living creatures also had a pair to cover themselves; each had a pair to cover his own body.
فَلَمَّا سَارَتْ سَمِعْتُ صَوْتَ أَجْنِحَتِهَا كَخَرِيرِ مِيَاهٍ كَثِيرَةٍ، كَصَوْتِ ٱلْقَدِيرِ. صَوْتَ ضَجَّةٍ، كَصَوْتِ جَيْشٍ. وَلَمَّا وَقَفَتْ أَرْخَتْ أَجْنِحَتَهَا. ٢٤ 24
Then I heard the sound of their wings. Like the noise of many waters. Like the voice of the Almighty whenever they moved. Like the sound of a rainstorm. Like the sound of an army. Whenever they stood still, they lowered their wings.
فَكَانَ صَوْتٌ مِنْ فَوْقِ ٱلْمُقَبَّبِ ٱلَّذِي عَلَى رُؤُوسِهَا. إِذَا وَقَفَتْ أَرْخَتْ أَجْنِحَتَهَا. ٢٥ 25
A voice came from above the dome over their heads whenever they stood still and lowered their wings.
وَفَوْقَ ٱلْمُقَبَّبِ ٱلَّذِي عَلَى رُؤُوسِهَا شِبْهُ عَرْشٍ كَمَنْظَرِ حَجَرِ ٱلْعَقِيقِ ٱلْأَزْرَقِ، وَعَلَى شِبْهِ ٱلْعَرْشِ شِبْهٌ كَمَنْظَرِ إِنْسَانٍ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ فَوْقُ. ٢٦ 26
Above the dome over their heads was the likeness of a throne that was like the appearance of a sapphire stone, and on the likeness of the throne was a likeness like the appearance of a man.
وَرَأَيْتُ مِثْلَ مَنْظَرِ ٱلنُّحَاسِ ٱللَّامِعِ كَمَنْظَرِ نَارٍ دَاخِلَهُ مِنْ حَوْلِهِ، مِنْ مَنْظَرِ حَقْوَيْهِ إِلَى فَوْقُ، وَمِنْ مَنْظَرِ حَقْوَيْهِ إِلَى تَحْتُ، رَأَيْتُ مِثْلَ مَنْظَرِ نَارٍ وَلَهَا لَمَعَانٌ مِنْ حَوْلِهَا. ٢٧ 27
I saw a figure with the appearance of glowing metal with fire in it from the appearance of his hips up; I saw from the appearance of his hips downward the appearance of fire and brightness all around.
كَمَنْظَرِ ٱلْقَوْسِ ٱلَّتِي فِي ٱلسَّحَابِ يَوْمَ مَطَرٍ، هَكَذَا مَنْظَرُ ٱللَّمَعَانِ مِنْ حَوْلِهِ. هَذَا مَنْظَرُ شِبْهِ مَجْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ. وَلَمَّا رَأَيْتُهُ خَرَرْتُ عَلَى وَجْهِي، وَسَمِعْتُ صَوْتَ مُتَكَلِّمٍ. ٢٨ 28
Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day was the appearance of the bright light surrounding it. It was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of Yahweh. When I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard a voice speaking.
