اَلتَّكْوِينُ 11

وَكَانَتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ كُلُّهَا لِسَانًا وَاحِدًا وَلُغَةً وَاحِدَةً. ١ 1
Now the whole earth used one language and had the same words.
وَحَدَثَ فِي ٱرْتِحَالِهِمْ شَرْقًا أَنَّهُمْ وَجَدُوا بُقْعَةً فِي أَرْضِ شِنْعَارَ وَسَكَنُوا هُنَاكَ. ٢ 2
As they journeyed in the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar and they settled there.
وَقَالَ بَعْضُهُمْ لِبَعْضٍ: «هَلُمَّ نَصْنَعُ لِبْنًا وَنَشْوِيهِ شَيًّا». فَكَانَ لَهُمُ ٱللِّبْنُ مَكَانَ ٱلْحَجَرِ، وَكَانَ لَهُمُ ٱلْحُمَرُ مَكَانَ ٱلطِّينِ. ٣ 3
They said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They had brick instead of stone and tar as mortar.
وَقَالُوا: «هَلُمَّ نَبْنِ لِأَنْفُسِنَا مَدِينَةً وَبُرْجًا رَأْسُهُ بِٱلسَّمَاءِ. وَنَصْنَعُ لِأَنْفُسِنَا ٱسْمًا لِئَلَّا نَتَبَدَّدَ عَلَى وَجْهِ كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ». ٤ 4
They said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower whose top will reach to the sky, and let us make a name for ourselves. If we do not, we will be scattered across the surface of the whole earth.”
فَنَزَلَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِيَنْظُرَ ٱلْمَدِينَةَ وَٱلْبُرْجَ ٱللَّذَيْنِ كَانَ بَنُو آدَمَ يَبْنُونَهُمَا. ٥ 5
So Yahweh came down to see the city and the tower which the descendants of Adam had built.
وَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «هُوَذَا شَعْبٌ وَاحِدٌ وَلِسَانٌ وَاحِدٌ لِجَمِيعِهِمْ، وَهَذَا ٱبْتِدَاؤُهُمْ بِٱلْعَمَلِ. وَٱلْآنَ لَا يَمْتَنِعُ عَلَيْهِمْ كُلُّ مَا يَنْوُونَ أَنْ يَعْمَلُوهُ. ٦ 6
Yahweh said, “Look, they are one people with the same language, and they are beginning to do this! Soon nothing that they intend to do will be impossible for them.
هَلُمَّ نَنْزِلْ وَنُبَلْبِلْ هُنَاكَ لِسَانَهُمْ حَتَّى لَا يَسْمَعَ بَعْضُهُمْ لِسَانَ بَعْضٍ». ٧ 7
Come, let us go down and confuse their language there, so that they may not understand each other.”
فَبَدَّدَهُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ مِنْ هُنَاكَ عَلَى وَجْهِ كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ، فَكَفُّوا عَنْ بُنْيَانِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ، ٨ 8
So Yahweh scattered them from there across the surface of all the earth and they stopped building the city.
لِذَلِكَ دُعِيَ ٱسْمُهَا «بَابِلَ» لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ هُنَاكَ بَلْبَلَ لِسَانَ كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ. وَمِنْ هُنَاكَ بَدَّدَهُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ عَلَى وَجْهِ كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٩ 9
Therefore, its name was called Babel, because there Yahweh confused the language of the whole earth and from there Yahweh scattered them abroad over the surface of all the earth.
هَذِهِ مَوَالِيدُ سَامٍ: لَمَّا كَانَ سَامٌ ٱبْنَ مِئَةِ سَنَةٍ وَلَدَ أَرْفَكْشَادَ، بَعْدَ ٱلطُّوفَانِ بِسَنَتَيْنِ. ١٠ 10
These were the descendants of Shem. Shem was a hundred years old, and he became the father of Arphaxad two years after the flood.
وَعَاشَ سَامٌ بَعْدَ مَا وَلَدَ أَرْفَكْشَادَ خَمْسَ مِئَةِ سَنَةٍ، وَوَلَدَ بَنِينَ وَبَنَاتٍ. ١١ 11
Shem lived five hundred years after he became the father of Arphaxad. He also became the father of other sons and daughters.
وَعَاشَ أَرْفَكْشَادُ خَمْسًا وَثَلَاثِينَ سَنَةً وَوَلَدَ شَالَحَ. ١٢ 12
When Arphaxad had lived thirty-five years, he became the father of Shelah.
وَعَاشَ أَرْفَكْشَادُ بَعْدَ مَا وَلَدَ شَالَحَ أَرْبَعَ مِئَةٍ وَثَلَاثَ سِنِينَ، وَوَلَدَ بَنِينَ وَبَنَاتٍ. ١٣ 13

وَعَاشَ شَالَحُ ثَلَاثِينَ سَنَةً وَوَلَدَ عَابِرَ. ١٤ 14

وَعَاشَ شَالَحُ بَعْدَ مَا وَلَدَ عَابِرَ أَرْبَعَ مِئَةٍ وَثَلَاثَ سِنِينَ، وَوَلَدَ بَنِينَ وَبَنَاتٍ. ١٥ 15
Shelah lived 403 years after he became the father of Eber. He also became the father of other sons and daughters.
وَعَاشَ عَابِرُ أَرْبَعًا وَثَلَاثِينَ سَنَةً وَوَلَدَ فَالَجَ. ١٦ 16
When Eber had lived thirty-four years, he became the father of Peleg.
وَعَاشَ عَابِرُ بَعْدَ مَا وَلَدَ فَالَجَ أَرْبَعَ مِئَةٍ وَثَلَاثِينَ سَنَةً، وَوَلَدَ بَنِينَ وَبَنَاتٍ. ١٧ 17
Eber lived 430 years after he became the father of Peleg. He also became the father of other sons and daughters.
وَعَاشَ فَالَجُ ثَلَاثِينَ سَنَةً وَوَلَدَ رَعُوَ. ١٨ 18
When Peleg had lived thirty years, he became the father of Reu.
وَعَاشَ فَالَجُ بَعْدَ مَا وَلَدَ رَعُوَ مِئَتَيْنِ وَتِسْعَ سِنِينَ، وَوَلَدَ بَنِينَ وَبَنَاتٍ. ١٩ 19
Peleg lived 209 years after he became the father of Reu. He also became the father of other sons and daughters.
وَعَاشَ رَعُو ٱثْنَتَيْنِ وَثَلَاثِينَ سَنَةً وَوَلَدَ سَرُوجَ. ٢٠ 20
When Reu had lived thirty-two years, he became the father of Serug.
وَعَاشَ رَعُو بَعْدَ مَا وَلَدَ سَرُوجَ مِئَتَيْنِ وَسَبْعَ سِنِينَ، وَوَلَدَ بَنِينَ وَبَنَاتٍ. ٢١ 21
Reu lived 207 years after he became the father of Serug. He also became the father of other sons and daughters.
وَعَاشَ سَرُوجُ ثَلَاثِينَ سَنَةً وَوَلَدَ نَاحُورَ. ٢٢ 22
When Serug had lived thirty years, he became the father of Nahor.
وَعَاشَ سَرُوجُ بَعْدَ مَا وَلَدَ نَاحُورَ مِئَتَيْ سَنَةٍ، وَوَلَدَ بَنِينَ وَبَنَاتٍ. ٢٣ 23
Serug lived two hundred years after he became the father of Nahor. He also became the father of other sons and daughters.
وَعَاشَ نَاحُورُ تِسْعًا وَعِشْرِينَ سَنَةً وَوَلَدَ تَارَحَ. ٢٤ 24
When Nahor had live twenty-nine years, he became the father of Terah.
وَعَاشَ نَاحُورُ بَعْدَ مَا وَلَدَ تَارَحَ مِئَةً وَتِسْعَ عَشَرَةَ سَنَةً، وَوَلَدَ بَنِينَ وَبَنَاتٍ. ٢٥ 25
Nahor lived 119 years after he became the father of Terah. He also became the father of other sons and daughters.
وَعَاشَ تَارَحُ سَبْعِينَ سَنَةً، وَوَلَدَ أَبْرَامَ وَنَاحُورَ وَهَارَانَ. ٢٦ 26
After Terah had lived seventy years, he became the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran.
وَهَذِهِ مَوَالِيدُ تَارَحَ: وَلَدَ تَارَحُ أَبْرَامَ وَنَاحُورَ وَهَارَانَ. وَوَلَدَ هَارَانُ لُوطًا. ٢٧ 27
Now these were the descendants of Terah. Terah became the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran, and Haran became the father of Lot.
وَمَاتَ هَارَانُ قَبْلَ تَارَحَ أَبِيهِ فِي أَرْضِ مِيلَادِهِ فِي أُورِ ٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ. ٢٨ 28
Haran died in the presence of his father Terah in the land of his birth, in Ur of the Chaldeans.
وَٱتَّخَذَ أَبْرَامُ وَنَاحُورُ لِأَنْفُسِهِمَا ٱمْرَأَتَيْنِ: ٱسْمُ ٱمْرَأَةِ أَبْرَامَ سَارَايُ، وَٱسْمُ ٱمْرَأَةِ نَاحُورَ مِلْكَةُ بِنْتُ هَارَانَ، أَبِي مِلْكَةَ وَأَبِي يِسْكَةَ. ٢٩ 29
Abram and Nahor took wives. The name of Abram's wife was Sarai and the name of Nahor's wife was Milkah, a daughter of Haran, who was the father of Milkah and Iskah.
وَكَانَتْ سَارَايُ عَاقِرًا لَيْسَ لَهَا وَلَدٌ. ٣٠ 30
Now Sarai was barren; she had no child.
وَأَخَذَ تَارَحُ أَبْرَامَ ٱبْنَهُ، وَلُوطًا بْنَ هَارَانَ، ٱبْنَ ٱبْنِهِ، وَسَارَايَ كَنَّتَهُ ٱمْرَأَةَ أَبْرَامَ ٱبْنِهِ، فَخَرَجُوا مَعًا مِنْ أُورِ ٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ لِيَذْهَبُوا إِلَى أَرْضِ كَنْعَانَ. فَأَتَوْا إِلَى حَارَانَ وَأَقَامُوا هُنَاكَ. ٣١ 31
Terah took Abram his son, Lot the son of his son Haran, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram's wife, and together they left Ur of the Chaldeans, to go into the land of Canaan. But they came to Haran and stayed there.
وَكَانَتْ أَيَّامُ تَارَحَ مِئَتَيْنِ وَخَمْسَ سِنِينَ. وَمَاتَ تَارَحُ فِي حَارَانَ. ٣٢ 32
Terah lived 205 years and then died in Haran.
