تكوين 15

بَعْدَ هَذِهِ ٱلْأُمُورِ صَارَ كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى أَبْرَامَ فِي ٱلرُّؤْيَا قَائِلًا: «لَا تَخَفْ يَا أَبْرَامُ. أَنَا تُرْسٌ لَكَ. أَجْرُكَ كَثِيرٌ جِدًّا». ١ 1
Some time later, Abram had a vision in which Yahweh spoke to him and said, “Do not be afraid of (anything/your enemies). I will protect you [MTY], and I will give a great reward.”
فَقَالَ أَبْرَامُ: «أَيُّهَا ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ، مَاذَا تُعْطِينِي وَأَنَا مَاضٍ عَقِيمًا، وَمَالِكُ بَيْتِي هُوَ أَلِيعَازَرُ ٱلدِّمَشْقِيُّ؟» ٢ 2
But Abram replied, “Yahweh God, how can you give me what I truly want, because I have no children, and the one who will be like a son and inherit all my possessions is my servant Eliezer from Damascus!”
وَقَالَ أَبْرَامُ أَيْضًا: «إِنَّكَ لَمْ تُعْطِنِي نَسْلًا، وَهُوَذَا ٱبْنُ بَيْتِي وَارِثٌ لِي». ٣ 3
Abram added, “You have not given me any children, so think about this: A servant in my household will inherit all I own!”
فَإِذَا كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَيْهِ قَائِلًا: «لَا يَرِثُكَ هَذَا، بَلِ ٱلَّذِي يَخْرُجُ مِنْ أَحْشَائِكَ هُوَ يَرِثُكَ». ٤ 4
Yahweh replied, “No! He will not be the one who will inherit it. Instead, you yourself will be the father of the one who will inherit everything you own.”
ثُمَّ أَخْرَجَهُ إِلَى خَارِجٍ وَقَالَ: «ٱنْظُرْ إِلَى ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَعُدَّ ٱلنُّجُومَ إِنِ ٱسْتَطَعْتَ أَنْ تَعُدَّهَا». وَقَالَ لَهُ: «هَكَذَا يَكُونُ نَسْلُكَ». ٥ 5
Then Yahweh took Abram outside [of his tent] and said, “Look up at the sky! Can you count the stars? No, you cannot count them because there are so many of them, and your descendants will be as numerous as the stars.”
فَآمَنَ بِٱلرَّبِّ فَحَسِبَهُ لَهُ بِرًّا. ٦ 6
Abram believed that what Yahweh said would happen. And because of that, Yahweh considered that Abram was righteous.
وَقَالَ لَهُ: «أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلَّذِي أَخْرَجَكَ مِنْ أُورِ ٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ لِيُعْطِيَكَ هَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضَ لِتَرِثَهَا». ٧ 7
Yahweh also said to him, “I am Yahweh. I am the one who brought you from Ur in Chaldea land. I brought you here to give you this land to possess.”
فَقَالَ: «أَيُّهَا ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ، بِمَاذَا أَعْلَمُ أَنِّي أَرِثُهَا؟» ٨ 8
But Abram replied, “Yahweh God, how can I know for sure that this land will belong to me?”
فَقَالَ لَهُ: «خُذْ لِي عِجْلَةً ثُلَاثِيَّةً، وَعَنْزَةً ثُلَاثِيَّةً، وَكَبْشًا ثُلَاثِيًّا، وَيَمَامَةً وَحَمَامَةً». ٩ 9
God said to him, “Bring a three-year-old heifer and a three-year-old goat to me, and a dove and a pigeon.”
فَأَخَذَ هَذِهِ كُلَّهَا وَشَقَّهَا مِنَ ٱلْوَسَطِ، وَجَعَلَ شِقَّ كُلِّ وَاحِدٍ مُقَابِلَ صَاحِبِهِ. وَأَمَّا ٱلطَّيْرُ فَلَمْ يَشُقَّهُ. ١٠ 10
So Abram brought all of them and killed them and cut each of the animals in half. He arranged the halves of each one, side by side. But he did not cut the pigeon and dove in half.
فَنَزَلَتِ ٱلْجَوَارِحُ عَلَى ٱلْجُثَثِ، وَكَانَ أَبْرَامُ يَزْجُرُهَا. ١١ 11
Birds that eat dead flesh came down to eat the carcasses, but Abram shooed them away.
وَلَمَّا صَارَتِ ٱلشَّمْسُ إِلَى ٱلْمَغِيبِ، وَقَعَ عَلَى أَبْرَامَ سُبَاتٌ، وَإِذَا رُعْبَةٌ مُظْلِمَةٌ عَظِيمَةٌ وَاقِعَةٌ عَلَيْهِ. ١٢ 12
As the sun was going down, Abram fell sound asleep, and suddenly everything around him became dark and frightening.
فَقَالَ لِأَبْرَامَ: «ٱعْلَمْ يَقِينًا أَنَّ نَسْلَكَ سَيَكُونُ غَرِيبًا فِي أَرْضٍ لَيْسَتْ لَهُمْ، وَيُسْتَعْبَدُونَ لَهُمْ. فَيُذِلُّونَهُمْ أَرْبَعَ مِئَةِ سَنَةٍ. ١٣ 13
Then God said to Abram, “I want you to know that your descendants will become foreigners living in a land that does not belong to them. They will become slaves of the owners of that land. The owners of the land will mistreat them for 400 years.
ثُمَّ ٱلْأُمَّةُ ٱلَّتِي يُسْتَعْبَدُونَ لَهَا أَنَا أَدِينُهَا، وَبَعْدَ ذَلِكَ يَخْرُجُونَ بِأَمْلَاكٍ جَزِيلَةٍ. ١٤ 14
But then I will punish the people of that country that made them become slaves, and then your descendants will leave that country, taking many possessions with them.
وَأَمَّا أَنْتَ فَتَمْضِي إِلَى آبَائِكَ بِسَلَامٍ وَتُدْفَنُ بِشَيْبَةٍ صَالِحَةٍ. ١٥ 15
But as for you, you will die [EUP] peacefully when you are very old.
وَفِي ٱلْجِيلِ ٱلرَّابِعِ يَرْجِعُونَ إِلَى هَهُنَا، لِأَنَّ ذَنْبَ ٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ لَيْسَ إِلَى ٱلْآنَ كَامِلًا». ١٦ 16
After your descendants have been slaves for 400 years, they will return here, and take control of this land and defeat the Amor people-group. Tose people will, because those people have not yet sinned enough to deserve to be punished now.”
ثُمَّ غَابَتِ ٱلشَّمْسُ فَصَارَتِ ٱلْعَتَمَةُ، وَإِذَا تَنُّورُ دُخَانٍ وَمِصْبَاحُ نَارٍ يَجُوزُ بَيْنَ تِلْكَ ٱلْقِطَعِ. ١٧ 17
When the sun had set and it had become dark, [unexpectedly] a blazing torch and a clay pot containing burning coals from which smoke was rising appeared and went between the halves of the animals.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ قَطَعَ ٱلرَّبُّ مَعَ أَبْرَامَ مِيثَاقًا قَائِلًا: «لِنَسْلِكَ أُعْطِي هَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضَ، مِنْ نَهْرِ مِصْرَ إِلَى ٱلنَّهْرِ ٱلْكَبِيرِ، نَهْرِ ٱلْفُرَاتِ. ١٨ 18
And on that day Yahweh made an agreement with Abram. Yahweh told him, “I will give to your descendants all the land between the river that is on the eastern border of Egypt to the south, and north to the huge Euphrates River.
ٱلْقِينِيِّينَ وَٱلْقَنِزِّيِّينَ وَٱلْقَدْمُونِيِّينَ ١٩ 19
That is the land where the Ken, the Keniz, the Kidmon,
وَٱلْحِثِّيِّينَ وَٱلْفَرِزِّيِّينَ وَٱلرَّفَائِيِّينَ ٢٠ 20
the Heth, the Periz, the Repha,
وَٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ وَٱلْكَنْعَانِيِّينَ وَٱلْجِرْجَاشِيِّينَ وَٱلْيَبُوسِيِّينَ». ٢١ 21
the Amor, the Canaan, the Girgash, and the Tebus people-groups live.”
