تكوين 21

وَٱفْتَقَدَ ٱلرَّبُّ سَارَةَ كَمَا قَالَ، وَفَعَلَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِسَارَةَ كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ. ١ 1
Yahweh paid attention to Sarah as he had said he would, and Yahweh did for Sarah just as he had promised.
فَحَبِلَتْ سَارَةُ وَوَلَدَتْ لِإِبْرَاهِيمَ ٱبْنًا فِي شَيْخُوخَتِهِ، فِي ٱلْوَقْتِ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ ٱللهُ عَنْهُ. ٢ 2
Sarah conceived and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.
وَدَعَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ ٱسْمَ ٱبْنِهِ ٱلْمَوْلُودِ لَهُ، ٱلَّذِي وَلَدَتْهُ لَهُ سَارَةُ «إِسْحَاقَ». ٣ 3
Abraham named his son, the one who had been born to him, whom Sarah bore to him, Isaac.
وَخَتَنَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ إِسْحَاقَ ٱبْنَهُ وَهُوَ ٱبْنُ ثَمَانِيَةِ أَيَّامٍ كَمَا أَمَرَهُ ٱللهُ. ٤ 4
Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, just as God had commanded him.
وَكَانَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ ٱبْنَ مِئَةِ سَنَةٍ حِينَ وُلِدَ لَهُ إِسْحَاقُ ٱبْنُهُ. ٥ 5
Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.
وَقَالَتْ سَارَةُ: «قَدْ صَنَعَ إِلَيَّ ٱللهُ ضِحْكًا. كُلُّ مَنْ يَسْمَعُ يَضْحَكُ لِي». ٦ 6
Sarah said, “God has made me laugh; every one who hears will laugh with me.”
وَقَالَتْ: «مَنْ قَالَ لِإِبْرَاهِيمَ: سَارَةُ تُرْضِعُ بَنِينَ؟ حَتَّى وَلَدْتُ ٱبْنًا فِي شَيْخُوخَتِهِ!». ٧ 7
She also said, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children, and yet I have borne him a son in his old age!”
فَكَبِرَ ٱلْوَلَدُ وَفُطِمَ. وَصَنَعَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ وَلِيمَةً عَظِيمَةً يَوْمَ فِطَامِ إِسْحَاقَ. ٨ 8
The child grew and was weaned, and Abraham made a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned.
وَرَأَتْ سَارَةُ ٱبْنَ هَاجَرَ ٱلْمِصْرِيَّةِ ٱلَّذِي وَلَدَتْهُ لِإِبْرَاهِيمَ يَمْزَحُ، ٩ 9
Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking.
فَقَالَتْ لِإِبْرَاهِيمَ: «ٱطْرُدْ هَذِهِ ٱلْجَارِيَةَ وَٱبْنَهَا، لِأَنَّ ٱبْنَ هَذِهِ ٱلْجَارِيَةِ لَا يَرِثُ مَعَ ٱبْنِي إِسْحَاقَ». ١٠ 10
So she said to Abraham, “Drive out this slave woman and her son, for the son of this slave woman will not be heir with my son, with Isaac.”
فَقَبُحَ ٱلْكَلَامُ جِدًّا فِي عَيْنَيْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ لِسَبَبِ ٱبْنِهِ. ١١ 11
This thing was very grievous to Abraham because of his son.
فَقَالَ ٱللهُ لِإِبْرَاهِيمَ: «لَا يَقْبُحُ فِي عَيْنَيْكَ مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱلْغُلَامِ وَمِنْ أَجْلِ جَارِيَتِكَ. فِي كُلِّ مَا تَقُولُ لَكَ سَارَةُ ٱسْمَعْ لِقَوْلِهَا، لِأَنَّهُ بِإِسْحَاقَ يُدْعَى لَكَ نَسْلٌ. ١٢ 12
But God said to Abraham, “Do not be grieved because of the lad, and because of your servant woman. Listen to her words in all she says to you about this matter, because it is through Isaac that your descendants will be named.
وَٱبْنُ ٱلْجَارِيَةِ أَيْضًا سَأَجْعَلُهُ أُمَّةً لِأَنَّهُ نَسْلُكَ». ١٣ 13
I will also make the son of the servant woman into a nation, because he is your descendant.”
فَبَكَّرَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ صَبَاحًا وَأَخَذَ خُبْزًا وَقِرْبَةَ مَاءٍ وَأَعْطَاهُمَا لِهَاجَرَ، وَاضِعًا إِيَّاهُمَا عَلَى كَتِفِهَا، وَٱلْوَلَدَ، وَصَرَفَهَا. فَمَضَتْ وَتَاهَتْ فِي بَرِّيَّةِ بِئْرِ سَبْعٍ. ١٤ 14
Abraham rose up early in the morning, took bread and a skin of water, and gave it to Hagar, putting it on her shoulder. He gave her the boy and sent her away. She departed and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba.
وَلَمَّا فَرَغَ ٱلْمَاءُ مِنَ ٱلْقِرْبَةِ طَرَحَتِ ٱلْوَلَدَ تَحْتَ إِحْدَى ٱلْأَشْجَارِ، ١٥ 15
When the water in the waterskin was gone, she abandoned the child under one of the bushes.
وَمَضَتْ وَجَلَسَتْ مُقَابِلَهُ بَعِيدًا نَحْوَ رَمْيَةِ قَوْسٍ، لِأَنَّهَا قَالَتْ: «لَا أَنْظُرُ مَوْتَ ٱلْوَلَدِ». فَجَلَسَتْ مُقَابِلَهُ وَرَفَعَتْ صَوْتَهَا وَبَكَتْ. ١٦ 16
Then she went, and sat down a short distance from him, about the distance of a bowshot away, for she said, “Let me not look upon the death of the child.” As she sat there across from him, she lifted up her voice and wept.
فَسَمِعَ ٱللهُ صَوْتَ ٱلْغُلَامِ، وَنَادَى مَلَاكُ ٱللهِ هَاجَرَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَقَالَ لَهَا: «مَا لَكِ يَا هَاجَرُ؟ لَا تَخَافِي، لِأَنَّ ٱللهَ قَدْ سَمِعَ لِصَوْتِ ٱلْغُلَامِ حَيْثُ هُوَ. ١٧ 17
God heard the voice of the lad, and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said to her, “What troubles you, Hagar? Do not be afraid, for God has heard the voice of the lad where he is.
قُومِي ٱحْمِلِي ٱلْغُلَامَ وَشُدِّي يَدَكِ بِهِ، لِأَنِّي سَأَجْعَلُهُ أُمَّةً عَظِيمَةً». ١٨ 18
Get up, raise up the lad, and encourage him; for I will make him into a great nation.”
وَفَتَحَ ٱللهُ عَيْنَيْهَا فَأَبْصَرَتْ بِئْرَ مَاءٍ، فَذَهَبَتْ وَمَلَأَتِ ٱلْقِرْبَةَ مَاءً وَسَقَتِ ٱلْغُلَامَ. ١٩ 19
Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. She went and filled the skin with water, and gave the lad a drink.
وَكَانَ ٱللهُ مَعَ ٱلْغُلَامِ فَكَبِرَ، وَسَكَنَ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ، وَكَانَ يَنْمُو رَامِيَ قَوْسٍ. ٢٠ 20
God was with the lad, and he grew. He lived in the wilderness and became an archer.
وَسَكَنَ فِي بَرِّيَّةِ فَارَانَ، وَأَخَذَتْ لَهُ أُمُّهُ زَوْجَةً مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ. ٢١ 21
He lived in the wilderness of Paran, and his mother got a wife for him from the land of Egypt.
وَحَدَثَ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلزَّمَانِ أَنَّ أَبِيمَالِكَ وَفِيكُولَ رَئِيسَ جَيْشِهِ كَلَّمَا إِبْرَاهِيمَ قَائِلَيْنِ: «ٱللهُ مَعَكَ فِي كُلِّ مَا أَنْتَ صَانِعٌ. ٢٢ 22
It came about at that time that Abimelech and Phicol the captain of his army spoke to Abraham, saying, “God is with you in all that you do.
فَٱلْآنَ ٱحْلِفْ لِي بِٱللهِ هَهُنَا أَنَّكَ لَا تَغْدُرُ بِي وَلَا بِنَسْلِي وَذُرِّيَّتِي، كَٱلْمَعْرُوفِ ٱلَّذِي صَنَعْتُ إِلَيْكَ تَصْنَعُ إِلَيَّ وَإِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي تَغَرَّبْتَ فِيهَا». ٢٣ 23
Now therefore swear to me here by God that you will not deal falsely with me, nor with my offspring, nor with my descendants. Show to me and to the land in which you have been staying the same covenant faithfulness that I have shown to you.”
فَقَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ: «أَنَا أَحْلِفُ». ٢٤ 24
Abraham said, “I swear.”
وَعَاتَبَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ أَبِيمَالِكَ لِسَبَبِ بِئْرِ ٱلْمَاءِ ٱلَّتِي ٱغْتَصَبَهَا عَبِيدُ أَبِيمَالِكَ. ٢٥ 25
Abraham also complained to Abimelech concerning a well of water that Abimelech's servants had seized from him.
فَقَالَ أَبِيمَالِكُ: «لَمْ أَعْلَمْ مَنْ فَعَلَ هَذَا ٱلْأَمْرَ. أَنْتَ لَمْ تُخْبِرْنِي، وَلَا أَنَا سَمِعْتُ سِوَى ٱلْيَوْمِ». ٢٦ 26
Abimelech said, “I do not know who has done this thing. You did not tell me before now; I have not heard of it until today.”
فَأَخَذَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ غَنَمًا وَبَقَرًا وَأَعْطَى أَبِيمَالِكَ، فَقَطَعَا كِلَاهُمَا مِيثَاقًا. ٢٧ 27
So Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave them to Abimelech, and the two men made a covenant.
وَأَقَامَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ سَبْعَ نِعَاجٍ مِنَ ٱلْغَنَمِ وَحْدَهَا. ٢٨ 28
Then Abraham set seven female lambs of the flock by themselves.
فَقَالَ أَبِيمَالِكُ لِإِبْرَاهِيمَ: «مَا هِيَ هَذِهِ ٱلسَّبْعُ ٱلنِّعَاجِ ٱلَّتِي أَقَمْتَهَا وَحْدَهَا؟» ٢٩ 29
Abimelech said to Abraham, “What is the meaning of these seven female lambs that you have set by themselves?”
فَقَالَ: «إِنَّكَ سَبْعَ نِعَاجٍ تَأْخُذُ مِنْ يَدِي، لِكَيْ تَكُونَ لِي شَهَادَةً بِأَنِّي حَفَرْتُ هَذِهِ ٱلْبِئْرَ». ٣٠ 30
He replied, “These seven female lambs you will receive from my hand, so that it may be a witness for me, that I dug this well.”
لِذَلِكَ دَعَا ذَلِكَ ٱلْمَوْضِعَ «بِئْرَ سَبْعٍ»، لِأَنَّهُمَا هُنَاكَ حَلَفَا كِلَاهُمَا. ٣١ 31
So he called that place Beersheba, because there they both swore an oath.
فَقَطَعَا مِيثَاقًا فِي بِئْرِ سَبْعٍ، ثُمَّ قَامَ أَبِيمَالِكُ وَفِيكُولُ رَئِيسُ جَيْشِهِ وَرَجَعَا إِلَى أَرْضِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ. ٣٢ 32
They made a covenant at Beersheba, and then Abimelech and Phicol, the captain of his army, returned to the land of the Philistines.
وَغَرَسَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ أَثْلًا فِي بِئْرِ سَبْعٍ، وَدَعَا هُنَاكَ بِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلْإِلَهِ ٱلسَّرْمَدِيِّ. ٣٣ 33
Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba. There he worshiped Yahweh, the eternal God.
وَتَغَرَّبَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ فِي أَرْضِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ أَيَّامًا كَثِيرَةً. ٣٤ 34
Abraham remained as a foreigner in the land of the Philistines many days.
