عَزْرَا 1

وَفِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلْأُولَى لِكُورَشَ مَلِكِ فَارِسَ عِنْدَ تَمَامِ كَلَامِ ٱلرَّبِّ بِفَمِ إِرْمِيَا، نَبَّهَ ٱلرَّبُّ رُوحَ كُورَشَ مَلِكِ فَارِسَ فَأَطْلَقَ نِدَاءً فِي كُلِّ مَمْلَكَتِهِ وَبِالْكِتَابَةِ أَيْضًا قَائِلًا: ١ 1
In the first year of Cyrus, king of Persia, Yahweh fulfilled his word that came from the mouth of Jeremiah, and stirred Cyrus's spirit. Cyrus' voice went out over his entire kingdom. This is what was written and spoken:
«هَكَذَا قَالَ كُورَشُ مَلِكُ فَارِسَ: جَمِيعُ مَمَالِكِ ٱلْأَرْضِ دَفَعَهَا لِي ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ ٱلسَّمَاءِ، وَهُوَ أَوْصَانِي أَنْ أَبْنِيَ لَهُ بَيْتًا فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ ٱلَّتِي فِي يَهُوذَا. ٢ 2
“Cyrus, king of Persia, says: Yahweh, God of Heaven, gave me all the kingdoms of the earth, and he appointed me to build for him a house in Jerusalem in Judea.
مَنْ مِنْكُمْ مِنْ كُلِّ شَعْبِهِ، لِيَكُنْ إِلَهُهُ مَعَهُ، وَيَصْعَدْ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ ٱلَّتِي فِي يَهُوذَا فَيَبْنِيَ بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ. هُوَ ٱلْإِلَهُ ٱلَّذِي فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ. ٣ 3
Whoever is from his people (may his God be with him) may go up to Jerusalem and build a house for Yahweh, the God of Israel, the God who is in Jerusalem.
وَكُلُّ مَنْ بَقِيَ فِي أَحَدِ ٱلْأَمَاكِنِ حَيْثُ هُوَ مُتَغَرِّبٌ فَلْيُنْجِدْهُ أَهْلُ مَكَانِهِ بِفِضَّةٍ وَبِذَهَبٍ وَبِأَمْتِعَةٍ وَبِبَهَائِمَ مَعَ ٱلتَّبَرُّعِ لِبَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّذِي فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ». ٤ 4
People of any part of the kingdom where survivors of that land are living should provide them with silver and gold, possessions and animals, as well as a freewill offering for God's house in Jerusalem.”
فَقَامَ رُؤُوسُ آبَاءِ يَهُوذَا وَبَنْيَامِينَ، وَٱلْكَهَنَةُ وَٱللَّاوِيُّونَ، مَعَ كُلِّ مَنْ نَبَّهَ ٱللهُ رُوحَهُ، لِيَصْعَدُوا لِيَبْنُوا بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّذِي فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ. ٥ 5
Then the heads of the ancestors' clans of Judah and Benjamin, the priests and Levites, and everyone whose spirit God stirred to go and build his house arose.
وَكُلُّ ٱلَّذِينَ حَوْلَهُمْ أَعَانُوهُمْ بِآنِيَةِ فِضَّةٍ وَبِذَهَبٍ وَبِأَمْتِعَةٍ وَبِبَهَائِمَ وَبِتُحَفٍ، فَضْلًا عَنْ كُلِّ مَا تُبُرِّعَ بِهِ. ٦ 6
Those around them supported their work with silver and gold objects, possessions, animals, valuables, and freewill offerings.
وَٱلْمَلِكُ كُورَشُ أَخْرَجَ آنِيَةَ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّتِي أَخْرَجَهَا نَبُوخَذْنَاصَّرُ مِنْ أُورُشَلِيمَ وَجَعَلَهَا فِي بَيْتِ آلِهَتِهِ. ٧ 7
Cyrus king of Persia also released the objects belonging to Yahweh's house that Nebuchadnezzar had brought from Jerusalem and put in his own gods' houses.
أَخْرَجَهَا كُورَشُ مَلِكُ فَارِسَ عَنْ يَدِ مِثْرَدَاثَ ٱلْخَازِنِ، وَعَدَّهَا لِشِيشْبَصَّرَ رَئِيسِ يَهُوذَا. ٨ 8
Cyrus put them into the hand of Mithredath the treasurer, who counted them out for Sheshbazzar, Judea's leader.
وَهَذَا عَدَدُهَا: ثَلَاثُونَ طَسْتًا مِنْ ذَهَبٍ، وَأَلْفُ طَسْتٍ مِنْ فِضَّةٍ، وَتِسْعَةٌ وَعِشْرُونَ سِكِّينًا، ٩ 9
This was their number: thirty gold basins, one thousand silver basins, twenty-nine other basins,
وَثَلَاثُونَ قَدَحًا مِنْ ذَهَبٍ، وَأَقْدَاحُ فِضَّةٍ مِنَ ٱلرُّتْبَةِ ٱلثَّانِيَةِ أَرْبَعُ مِئَةٍ وَعَشَرَةٌ، وَأَلْفٌ مِنْ آنِيَةٍ أُخْرَى. ١٠ 10
thirty gold bowls, 410 small silver bowls, and one thousand additional objects.
جَمِيعُ ٱلْآنِيَةِ مِنَ ٱلذَّهَبِ وَٱلْفِضَّةِ خَمْسَةُ آلَافٍ وَأَرْبَعُ مِئَةٍ. ٱلْكُلُّ أَصْعَدَهُ شِيشْبَصَّرُ عِنْدَ إِصْعَادِ ٱلسَّبْيِ مِنْ بَابِلَ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ. ١١ 11
There were 5,400 gold and silver items in all. Sheshbazzar brought all of them when the exiles went from Babylon to Jerusalem.
