اَلتَّكْوِينُ 20

وَٱنْتَقَلَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ مِنْ هُنَاكَ إِلَى أَرْضِ ٱلْجَنُوبِ، وَسَكَنَ بَيْنَ قَادِشَ وَشُورَ، وَتَغَرَّبَ فِي جَرَارَ. ١ 1
Abraham journeyed from there toward the land of the Negev, and lived between Kadesh and Shur. He was a foreigner living in Gerar.
وَقَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ عَنْ سَارَةَ ٱمْرَأَتِهِ: «هِيَ أُخْتِي». فَأَرْسَلَ أَبِيمَالِكُ مَلِكُ جَرَارَ وَأَخَذَ سَارَةَ. ٢ 2
Abraham said concerning Sarah his wife, “She is my sister.” So Abimelech king of Gerar sent for Sarah and took her.
فَجَاءَ ٱللهُ إِلَى أَبِيمَالِكَ فِي حُلْمِ ٱللَّيْلِ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «هَا أَنْتَ مَيِّتٌ مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱلْمَرْأَةِ ٱلَّتِي أَخَذْتَهَا، فَإِنَّهَا مُتَزَوِّجَةٌ بِبَعْلٍ». ٣ 3
But God came to Abimelech in a dream in the night, and said to him, “Behold, you are a dead man because of the woman whom you have taken, for she is a man's wife.”
وَلَكِنْ لَمْ يَكُنْ أَبِيمَالِكُ قَدِ ٱقْتَرَبَ إِلَيْهَا، فَقَالَ: «يَا سَيِّدُ، أَأُمَّةً بَارَّةً تَقْتُلُ؟ ٤ 4
Now Abimelech had not come near her and he said, “Lord, would you kill even a righteous nation?
أَلَمْ يَقُلْ هُوَ لِي: إِنَّهَا أُخْتِي، وَهِيَ أَيْضًا نَفْسُهَا قَالَتْ: هُوَ أَخِي؟ بِسَلَامَةِ قَلْبِي وَنَقَاوَةِ يَدَيَّ فَعَلْتُ هَذَا». ٥ 5
Did he not himself say to me, 'She is my sister?' Even she herself said, 'He is my brother.' I have done this in the integrity of my heart and the innocence of my hands.”
فَقَالَ لَهُ ٱللهُ فِي ٱلْحُلْمِ: «أَنَا أَيْضًا عَلِمْتُ أَنَّكَ بِسَلَامَةِ قَلْبِكَ فَعَلْتَ هَذَا. وَأَنَا أَيْضًا أَمْسَكْتُكَ عَنْ أَنْ تُخْطِئَ إِلَيَّ، لِذَلِكَ لَمْ أَدَعْكَ تَمَسُّهَا. ٦ 6
Then God said to him in the dream, “Yes, I also know that in the integrity of your heart you did this, and I also kept you from sinning against me. Therefore I did not allow you to touch her.
فَٱلْآنَ رُدَّ ٱمْرَأَةَ ٱلرَّجُلِ، فَإِنَّهُ نَبِيٌّ، فَيُصَلِّيَ لِأَجْلِكَ فَتَحْيَا. وَإِنْ كُنْتَ لَسْتَ تَرُدُّهَا، فَٱعْلَمْ أَنَّكَ مَوْتًا تَمُوتُ، أَنْتَ وَكُلُّ مَنْ لَكَ». ٧ 7
Therefore, return the man's wife, for he is a prophet. He will pray for you, and you will live. But if you do not restore her, know that you and all who are yours will surely die.”
فَبَكَّرَ أَبِيمَالِكُ فِي ٱلْغَدِ وَدَعَا جَمِيعَ عَبِيدِهِ، وَتَكَلَّمَ بِكُلِّ هَذَا ٱلْكَلَامِ فِي مَسَامِعِهِمْ، فَخَافَ ٱلرِّجَالُ جِدًّا. ٨ 8
Abimelech rose early in the morning and called all of his servants to himself. He told all these things to them, and the men were very afraid.
ثُمَّ دَعَا أَبِيمَالِكُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «مَاذَا فَعَلْتَ بِنَا؟ وَبِمَاذَا أَخْطَأْتُ إِلَيْكَ حَتَّى جَلَبْتَ عَلَيَّ وَعَلَى مَمْلَكَتِي خَطِيَّةً عَظِيمَةً؟ أَعْمَالًا لَا تُعْمَلُ عَمِلْتَ بِي». ٩ 9
Then Abimelech called for Abraham and said to him, “What have you done to us? How have I sinned against you, that you have brought on me and on my kingdom a great sin? You have done to me that which ought not to be done.”
وَقَالَ أَبِيمَالِكُ لِإِبْرَاهِيمَ: «مَاذَا رَأَيْتَ حَتَّى عَمِلْتَ هَذَا ٱلشَّيْءَ؟» ١٠ 10
Abimelech said to Abraham, “What prompted you to do this thing?”
فَقَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ: «إِنِّي قُلْتُ: لَيْسَ فِي هَذَا ٱلْمَوْضِعِ خَوْفُ ٱللهِ ٱلْبَتَّةَ، فَيَقْتُلُونَنِي لِأَجْلِ ٱمْرَأَتِي. ١١ 11
Abraham said, “Because I thought, 'Surely there is no fear of God in this place, and they will kill me because of my wife.'
وَبِٱلْحَقِيقَةِ أَيْضًا هِيَ أُخْتِي ٱبْنَةُ أَبِي، غَيْرَ أَنَّهَا لَيْسَتِ ٱبْنَةَ أُمِّي، فَصَارَتْ لِي زَوْجَةً. ١٢ 12
Besides, she is indeed my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.
وَحَدَثَ لَمَّا أَتَاهَنِي ٱللهُ مِنْ بَيْتِ أَبِي أَنِّي قُلْتُ لَهَا: هَذَا مَعْرُوفُكِ ٱلَّذِي تَصْنَعِينَ إِلَيَّ: فِي كُلِّ مَكَانٍ نَأْتِي إِلَيْهِ قُولِي عَنِّي: هُوَ أَخِي». ١٣ 13
When God caused me to leave my father's house and travel from place to place, I said to her, 'You must show me this faithfulness as my wife: At every place where we go, say about me, “He is my brother.”'”
فَأَخَذَ أَبِيمَالِكُ غَنَمًا وَبَقَرًا وَعَبِيدًا وَإِمَاءً وَأَعْطَاهَا لِإِبْرَاهِيمَ، وَرَدَّ إِلَيْهِ سَارَةَ ٱمْرَأَتَهُ. ١٤ 14
Then Abimelech took sheep and oxen, and male and female slaves, and gave them to Abraham. Then he returned Sarah, Abraham's wife, to him.
وَقَالَ أَبِيمَالِكُ: «هُوَذَا أَرْضِي قُدَّامَكَ. ٱسْكُنْ فِي مَا حَسُنَ فِي عَيْنَيْكَ». ١٥ 15
Abimelech said, “Look, my land is before you. Settle wherever it pleases you.”
وَقَالَ لِسَارَةَ: «إِنِّي قَدْ أَعْطَيْتُ أَخَاكِ أَلْفًا مِنَ ٱلْفِضَّةِ. هَا هُوَ لَكِ غِطَاءُ عَيْنٍ مِنْ جِهَةِ كُلِّ مَا عِنْدَكِ وَعِنْدَ كُلِّ وَاحِدٍ، فَأُنْصِفْتِ». ١٦ 16
To Sarah he said, “Look, I have given your brother a thousand pieces of silver. It is to cover any offense against you in the eyes of all that are with you, and before everyone, you are completely made right.”
فَصَلَّى إِبْرَاهِيمُ إِلَى ٱللهِ، فَشَفَى ٱللهُ أَبِيمَالِكَ وَٱمْرَأَتَهُ وَجَوَارِيَهُ فَوَلَدْنَ. ١٧ 17
Then Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelech, his wife, and his female slaves so that they were able to have children.
لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ كَانَ قَدْ أَغْلَقَ كُلَّ رَحِمٍ لِبَيْتِ أَبِيمَالِكَ بِسَبَبِ سَارَةَ ٱمْرَأَةِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ. ١٨ 18
For Yahweh had caused all the women of the household of Abimelech to be completely infertile, because of Sarah, Abraham's wife.
