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
After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.
فَقَالَ أَبْرَامُ: «أَيُّهَا ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ، مَاذَا تُعْطِينِي وَأَنَا مَاضٍ عَقِيمًا، وَمَالِكُ بَيْتِي هُوَ أَلِيعَازَرُ ٱلدِّمَشْقِيُّ؟» ٢ 2
And Abram said, Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?
وَقَالَ أَبْرَامُ أَيْضًا: «إِنَّكَ لَمْ تُعْطِنِي نَسْلًا، وَهُوَذَا ٱبْنُ بَيْتِي وَارِثٌ لِي». ٣ 3
And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and lo, one born in my house is my heir.
فَإِذَا كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَيْهِ قَائِلًا: «لَا يَرِثُكَ هَذَا، بَلِ ٱلَّذِي يَخْرُجُ مِنْ أَحْشَائِكَ هُوَ يَرِثُكَ». ٤ 4
And behold, the word of the LORD came to him, saying, This shall not be thy heir; but he that shall come forth out of thy own bowels shall be thy heir.
ثُمَّ أَخْرَجَهُ إِلَى خَارِجٍ وَقَالَ: «ٱنْظُرْ إِلَى ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَعُدَّ ٱلنُّجُومَ إِنِ ٱسْتَطَعْتَ أَنْ تَعُدَّهَا». وَقَالَ لَهُ: «هَكَذَا يَكُونُ نَسْلُكَ». ٥ 5
And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now towards heaven, and tell the stars, if thou art able to number them: and he said to him, So shall thy seed be.
فَآمَنَ بِٱلرَّبِّ فَحَسِبَهُ لَهُ بِرًّا. ٦ 6
And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.
وَقَالَ لَهُ: «أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلَّذِي أَخْرَجَكَ مِنْ أُورِ ٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ لِيُعْطِيَكَ هَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضَ لِتَرِثَهَا». ٧ 7
And he said to him, I am the LORD that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.
فَقَالَ: «أَيُّهَا ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ، بِمَاذَا أَعْلَمُ أَنِّي أَرِثُهَا؟» ٨ 8
And he said, Lord GOD, by what shall I know that I shall inherit it?
فَقَالَ لَهُ: «خُذْ لِي عِجْلَةً ثُلَاثِيَّةً، وَعَنْزَةً ثُلَاثِيَّةً، وَكَبْشًا ثُلَاثِيًّا، وَيَمَامَةً وَحَمَامَةً». ٩ 9
And he said to him, Take me a heifer of three years old, and a she-goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtle-dove, and a young pigeon.
فَأَخَذَ هَذِهِ كُلَّهَا وَشَقَّهَا مِنَ ٱلْوَسَطِ، وَجَعَلَ شِقَّ كُلِّ وَاحِدٍ مُقَابِلَ صَاحِبِهِ. وَأَمَّا ٱلطَّيْرُ فَلَمْ يَشُقَّهُ. ١٠ 10
And he took to him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds he did not divide.
فَنَزَلَتِ ٱلْجَوَارِحُ عَلَى ٱلْجُثَثِ، وَكَانَ أَبْرَامُ يَزْجُرُهَا. ١١ 11
And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away.
وَلَمَّا صَارَتِ ٱلشَّمْسُ إِلَى ٱلْمَغِيبِ، وَقَعَ عَلَى أَبْرَامَ سُبَاتٌ، وَإِذَا رُعْبَةٌ مُظْلِمَةٌ عَظِيمَةٌ وَاقِعَةٌ عَلَيْهِ. ١٢ 12
And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and lo, a horror of great darkness fell upon him.
فَقَالَ لِأَبْرَامَ: «ٱعْلَمْ يَقِينًا أَنَّ نَسْلَكَ سَيَكُونُ غَرِيبًا فِي أَرْضٍ لَيْسَتْ لَهُمْ، وَيُسْتَعْبَدُونَ لَهُمْ. فَيُذِلُّونَهُمْ أَرْبَعَ مِئَةِ سَنَةٍ. ١٣ 13
And he said to Abram, Know certainly that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
ثُمَّ ٱلْأُمَّةُ ٱلَّتِي يُسْتَعْبَدُونَ لَهَا أَنَا أَدِينُهَا، وَبَعْدَ ذَلِكَ يَخْرُجُونَ بِأَمْلَاكٍ جَزِيلَةٍ. ١٤ 14
And also that nation which they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
وَأَمَّا أَنْتَ فَتَمْضِي إِلَى آبَائِكَ بِسَلَامٍ وَتُدْفَنُ بِشَيْبَةٍ صَالِحَةٍ. ١٥ 15
And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age.
وَفِي ٱلْجِيلِ ٱلرَّابِعِ يَرْجِعُونَ إِلَى هَهُنَا، لِأَنَّ ذَنْبَ ٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ لَيْسَ إِلَى ٱلْآنَ كَامِلًا». ١٦ 16
But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.
ثُمَّ غَابَتِ ٱلشَّمْسُ فَصَارَتِ ٱلْعَتَمَةُ، وَإِذَا تَنُّورُ دُخَانٍ وَمِصْبَاحُ نَارٍ يَجُوزُ بَيْنَ تِلْكَ ٱلْقِطَعِ. ١٧ 17
And it came to pass, that when the sun had gone down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ قَطَعَ ٱلرَّبُّ مَعَ أَبْرَامَ مِيثَاقًا قَائِلًا: «لِنَسْلِكَ أُعْطِي هَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضَ، مِنْ نَهْرِ مِصْرَ إِلَى ٱلنَّهْرِ ٱلْكَبِيرِ، نَهْرِ ٱلْفُرَاتِ. ١٨ 18
In that same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, To thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates:
ٱلْقِينِيِّينَ وَٱلْقَنِزِّيِّينَ وَٱلْقَدْمُونِيِّينَ ١٩ 19
The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,
وَٱلْحِثِّيِّينَ وَٱلْفَرِزِّيِّينَ وَٱلرَّفَائِيِّينَ ٢٠ 20
And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,
وَٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ وَٱلْكَنْعَانِيِّينَ وَٱلْجِرْجَاشِيِّينَ وَٱلْيَبُوسِيِّينَ». ٢١ 21
And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
