تكوين 24

وَشَاخَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ وَتَقَدَّمَ فِي ٱلْأَيَّامِ. وَبَارَكَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِبْرَاهِيمَ فِي كُلِّ شَيْءٍ. ١ 1
And Abraam was old, advanced in days, and the Lord blessed Abraam in all things.
وَقَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ لِعَبْدِهِ كَبِيرِ بَيْتِهِ ٱلْمُسْتَوْلِي عَلَى كُلِّ مَا كَانَ لَهُ: «ضَعْ يَدَكَ تَحْتَ فَخْذِي، ٢ 2
And Abraam said to his servant the elder of his house, who had rule over all his possessions, Put your hand under my thigh,
فَأَسْتَحْلِفَكَ بِٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَإِلَهِ ٱلْأَرْضِ أَنْ لَا تَأْخُذَ زَوْجَةً لِٱبْنِي مِنْ بَنَاتِ ٱلْكَنْعَانِيِّينَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَنَا سَاكِنٌ بَيْنَهُمْ، ٣ 3
and I will adjure you by the Lord the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that you take not a wife for my son Isaac from the daughters of the Chananites, with whom I dwell, in the midst of them.
بَلْ إِلَى أَرْضِي وَإِلَى عَشِيرَتِي تَذْهَبُ وَتَأْخُذُ زَوْجَةً لِٱبْنِي إِسْحَاقَ». ٤ 4
But you shall go instead to my country, where I was born, and to my tribe, and you shall take from thence a wife for my son Isaac.
فَقَالَ لَهُ ٱلْعَبْدُ: «رُبَّمَا لَا تَشَاءُ ٱلْمَرْأَةُ أَنْ تَتْبَعَنِي إِلَى هَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضِ. هَلْ أَرْجِعُ بِٱبْنِكَ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي خَرَجْتَ مِنْهَا؟» ٥ 5
And the servant said to him, Shall I carry back your son to the land whence you came forth, if haply the woman should not be willing to return with me to this land?
فَقَالَ لَهُ إِبْرَاهِيمُ: «ٱحْتَرِزْ مِنْ أَنْ تَرْجِعَ بِٱبْنِي إِلَى هُنَاكَ. ٦ 6
And Abraam said to him, Take heed to yourself that you carry not my son back there.
اَلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ ٱلسَّمَاءِ ٱلَّذِي أَخَذَنِي مِنْ بَيْتِ أَبِي وَمِنْ أَرْضِ مِيلَادِي، وَٱلَّذِي كَلَّمَنِي وَٱلَّذِي أَقْسَمَ لِي قَائِلًا: لِنَسْلِكَ أُعْطِي هَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضَ، هُوَ يُرْسِلُ مَلَاكَهُ أَمَامَكَ، فَتَأْخُذُ زَوْجَةً لِٱبْنِي مِنْ هُنَاكَ. ٧ 7
The Lord the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, who took me out of my father's house, and out of the land whence I sprang, who spoke to me, and who swore to me, saying, I will give this land to you and to your seed, he shall send his angel before you, and you shall take a wife to my son from thence.
وَإِنْ لَمْ تَشَإِ ٱلْمَرْأَةُ أَنْ تَتْبَعَكَ، تَبَرَّأْتَ مِنْ حَلْفِي هَذَا. أَمَّا ٱبْنِي فَلَا تَرْجِعْ بِهِ إِلَى هُنَاكَ». ٨ 8
And if the woman should not be willing to come with you into this land, you shall be clear from my oath, only carry not my son there again.
فَوَضَعَ ٱلْعَبْدُ يَدَهُ تَحْتَ فَخْذِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ مَوْلَاهُ، وَحَلَفَ لَهُ عَلَى هَذَا ٱلْأَمْرِ. ٩ 9
And the servant put his hand under the thigh of his master Abraam, and swore to him concerning this matter.
ثُمَّ أَخَذَ ٱلْعَبْدُ عَشْرَةَ جِمَالٍ مِنْ جِمَالِ مَوْلَاهُ، وَمَضَى وَجَمِيعُ خَيْرَاتِ مَوْلَاهُ فِي يَدِهِ. فَقَامَ وَذَهَبَ إِلَى أَرَامِ ٱلنَّهْرَيْنِ إِلَى مَدِينَةِ نَاحُورَ. ١٠ 10
And the servant took ten camels of his master's camels, and [he took] of all the goods of his master with him, and he arose and went into Mesopotamia to the city of Nachor.
وَأَنَاخَ ٱلْجِمَالَ خَارِجَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ عِنْدَ بِئْرِ ٱلْمَاءِ وَقْتَ ٱلْمَسَاءِ، وَقْتَ خُرُوجِ ٱلْمُسْتَقِيَاتِ. ١١ 11
And he rested his camels without the city by the well of water towards evening, when damsels go forth to draw water.
وَقَالَ: «أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهَ سَيِّدِي إِبْرَاهِيمَ، يَسِّرْ لِي ٱلْيَوْمَ وَٱصْنَعْ لُطْفًا إِلَى سَيِّدِي إِبْرَاهِيمَ. ١٢ 12
And he said, O Lord God of my master Abraam, prosper my way before me to day, and deal mercifully with my master Abraam.
هَا أَنَا وَاقِفٌ عَلَى عَيْنِ ٱلْمَاءِ، وَبَنَاتُ أَهْلِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ خَارِجَاتٌ لِيَسْتَقِينَ مَاءً. ١٣ 13
Behold! I stand by the well of water, and the daughters of them that inhabit the city come forth to draw water.
فَلْيَكُنْ أَنَّ ٱلْفَتَاةَ ٱلَّتِي أَقُولُ لَهَا: أَمِيلِي جَرَّتَكِ لِأَشْرَبَ، فَتَقُولَ: ٱشْرَبْ وَأَنَا أَسْقِي جِمَالَكَ أَيْضًا، هِيَ ٱلَّتِي عَيَّنْتَهَا لِعَبْدِكَ إِسْحَاقَ. وَبِهَا أَعْلَمُ أَنَّكَ صَنَعْتَ لُطْفًا إِلَى سَيِّدِي». ١٤ 14
And it shall be, the virgin to whoever I shall say, Incline your water-pot, that I may drink, and she shall say, Drink you, and I will give your camels drink, until they shall have done drinking—even this one you have prepared for your servant Isaac, and hereby shall I know that you have dealt mercifully with my master Abraam.
وَإِذْ كَانَ لَمْ يَفْرَغْ بَعْدُ مِنَ ٱلْكَلَامِ، إِذَا رِفْقَةُ ٱلَّتِي وُلِدَتْ لِبَتُوئِيلَ ٱبْنِ مِلْكَةَ ٱمْرَأَةِ نَاحُورَ أَخِي إِبْرَاهِيمَ، خَارِجَةٌ وَجَرَّتُهَا عَلَى كَتِفِهَا. ١٥ 15
And it came to pass before he had done speaking in his mind, that behold, Rebecca the daughter of Bathuel, the son of Melcha, the wife of Nachor, and [the same] the brother of Abraam, came forth, having a water-pot on her shoulders.
وَكَانَتِ ٱلْفَتَاةُ حَسَنَةَ ٱلْمَنْظَرِ جِدًّا، وَعَذْرَاءَ لَمْ يَعْرِفْهَا رَجُلٌ. فَنَزَلَتْ إِلَى ٱلْعَيْنِ وَمَلَأَتْ جَرَّتَهَا وَطَلَعَتْ. ١٦ 16
And the virgin was very beautiful in appearance, she was a virgin, a man had not known her; and she went down to the well, and filled her water-pot, and came up.
فَرَكَضَ ٱلْعَبْدُ لِلِقَائِهَا وَقَالَ: «ٱسْقِينِي قَلِيلَ مَاءٍ مِنْ جَرَّتِكِ». ١٧ 17
And the servant ran up to meet her, and said, Give me a little water to drink out of your pitcher;
فَقَالَتِ: «ٱشْرَبْ يَا سَيِّدِي». وَأَسْرَعَتْ وَأَنْزَلَتْ جَرَّتَهَا عَلَى يَدِهَا وَسَقَتْهُ. ١٨ 18
and she said, Drink, Sir; and she hasted, and let down the pitcher upon her arm, and gave him to drink, till he ceased drinking.
وَلَمَّا فَرَغَتْ مِنْ سَقْيِهِ قَالَتْ: «أَسْتَقِي لِجِمَالِكَ أَيْضًا حَتَّى تَفْرَغَ مِنَ ٱلشُّرْبِ». ١٩ 19
And she said, I will also draw water for your camels, till they shall all have drunk.
فَأَسْرَعَتْ وَأَفْرَغَتْ جَرَّتَهَا فِي ٱلْمَسْقَاةِ، وَرَكَضَتْ أَيْضًا إِلَى ٱلْبِئْرِ لِتَسْتَقِيَ، فَٱسْتَقَتْ لِكُلِّ جِمَالِهِ. ٢٠ 20
And she hasted, and emptied the water-pot into the trough, and ran to the well to draw again, and drew water for all the camels.
وَٱلرَّجُلُ يَتَفَرَّسُ فِيهَا صَامِتًا لِيَعْلَمَ: أَأَنْجَحَ ٱلرَّبُّ طَرِيقَهُ أَمْ لَا. ٢١ 21
And the man took great notice of her, and remained silent to know whether the Lord had made his way prosperous or not.
وَحَدَثَ عِنْدَمَا فَرَغَتِ ٱلْجِمَالُ مِنَ ٱلشُّرْبِ أَنَّ ٱلرَّجُلَ أَخَذَ خِزَامَةَ ذَهَبٍ وَزْنُهَا نِصْفُ شَاقِلٍ وَسِوَارَيْنِ عَلَى يَدَيْهَا وَزْنُهُمَا عَشْرَةُ شَوَاقِلِ ذَهَبٍ. ٢٢ 22
And it came to pass when all the camels ceased drinking, that the man took golden ear-rings, each of a drachm weight, and he [put] two bracelets on her hands, their weight was ten pieces of gold.
وَقَالَ: «بِنْتُ مَنْ أَنْتِ؟ أَخْبِرِينِي: هَلْ فِي بَيْتِ أَبِيكِ مَكَانٌ لَنَا لِنَبِيتَ؟» ٢٣ 23
And he asked her, and said, Whose daughter are you? Tell me if there is room for us to lodge with your father.
فَقَالَتْ لَهُ: «أَنَا بِنْتُ بَتُوئِيلَ ٱبْنِ مِلْكَةَ ٱلَّذِي وَلَدَتْهُ لِنَاحُورَ». ٢٤ 24
And she said to him, I am the daughter of Bathuel the son of Melcha, whom she bore to Nachor.
وَقَالَتْ لَهُ: «عِنْدَنَا تِبْنٌ وَعَلَفٌ كَثِيرٌ، وَمَكَانٌ لِتَبِيتُوا أَيْضًا». ٢٥ 25
And she said to him, We have both straw and much provender, and a place for resting.
فَخَرَّ ٱلرَّجُلُ وَسَجَدَ لِلرَّبِّ، ٢٦ 26
And the man being well pleased, worshipped the Lord,
وَقَالَ: «مُبَارَكٌ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ سَيِّدِي إِبْرَاهِيمَ ٱلَّذِي لَمْ يَمْنَعْ لُطْفَهُ وَحَقَّهُ عَنْ سَيِّدِي. إِذْ كُنْتُ أَنَا فِي ٱلطَّرِيقِ، هَدَانِي ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَى بَيْتِ إِخْوَةِ سَيِّدِي». ٢٧ 27
and said, Blessed be the Lord the God of my master Abraam, who has not suffered his righteousness to fail, nor his truth from my master, and the Lord has brought me prosperously to the house of the brother of my lord.
فَرَكَضَتِ ٱلْفَتَاةُ وَأَخْبَرَتْ بَيْتَ أُمِّهَا بِحَسَبِ هَذِهِ ٱلْأُمُورِ. ٢٨ 28
And the damsel ran and reported to the house of her mother according to these words.
وَكَانَ لِرِفْقَةَ أَخٌ ٱسْمُهُ لَابَانُ، فَرَكَضَ لَابَانُ إِلَى ٱلرَّجُلِ خَارِجًا إِلَى ٱلْعَيْنِ. ٢٩ 29
And Rebecca had a brother whose name was Laban; and Laban ran out to meet the man, to the well.
وَحَدَثَ أَنَّهُ إِذْ رَأَى ٱلْخِزَامَةَ وَٱلسِّوَارَيْنِ عَلَى يَدَيْ أُخْتِهِ، وَإِذْ سَمِعَ كَلَامَ رِفْقَةَ أُخْتِهِ قَائِلَةً: «هَكَذَا كَلَّمَنِي ٱلرَّجُلُ»، جَاءَ إِلَى ٱلرَّجُلِ، وَإِذَا هُوَ وَاقِفٌ عِنْدَ ٱلْجِمَالِ عَلَى ٱلْعَيْنِ. ٣٠ 30
And it came to pass when he saw the ear-rings and the bracelets on the hands of his sister, and when he heard the words of Rebecca his sister, saying, Thus the man spoke to me, that he went to the man, as he stood by the camels at the well.
فَقَالَ: «ٱدْخُلْ يَا مُبَارَكَ ٱلرَّبِّ، لِمَاذَا تَقِفُ خَارِجًا وَأَنَا قَدْ هَيَّأْتُ ٱلْبَيْتَ وَمَكَانًا لِلْجِمَالِ؟». ٣١ 31
And he said to him, Come in hither, you blessed of the Lord, why stand you without, whereas I have prepared the house and a place for the camels?
فَدَخَلَ ٱلرَّجُلُ إِلَى ٱلْبَيْتِ وَحَلَّ عَنِ ٱلْجِمَالِ، فَأَعْطَى تِبْنًا وَعَلَفًا لِلْجِمَالِ، وَمَاءً لِغَسْلِ رِجْلَيْهِ وَأَرْجُلِ ٱلرِّجَالِ ٱلَّذِينَ مَعَهُ. ٣٢ 32
And the man entered into the house, and unloaded the camels, and gave the camels straw and provender, and water to wash his feet, and the feet of the men that were with him.
وَوُضِعَ قُدَّامَهُ لِيَأْكُلَ. فَقَالَ: «لَا آكُلُ حَتَّى أَتَكَلَّمَ كَلَامِي». فَقَالَ: «تَكَلَّمْ». ٣٣ 33
And he set before them loaves to eat; but he said, I will not eat, until I have told my errand. And he said, Speak on.
فَقَالَ: «أَنَا عَبْدُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، ٣٤ 34
And he said, I am a servant of Abraam;
وَٱلرَّبُّ قَدْ بَارَكَ مَوْلَايَ جِدًّا فَصَارَ عَظِيمًا، وَأَعْطَاهُ غَنَمًا وَبَقَرًا وَفِضَّةً وَذَهَبًا وَعَبِيدًا وَإِمَاءً وَجِمَالًا وَحَمِيرًا. ٣٥ 35
and the Lord has blessed my master greatly, and he is exalted, and he has given him sheep, and calves, and silver, and gold, servants and servant-maids, camels, and asses.
وَوَلَدَتْ سَارَةُ ٱمْرَأَةُ سَيِّدِي ٱبْنًا لِسَيِّدِي بَعْدَ مَاشَاخَتْ، فَقَدْ أَعْطَاهُ كُلَّ مَا لَهُ. ٣٦ 36
And Sarrha my master's wife bore one son to my master after he had grown old; and he gave him whatever he had.
وَٱسْتَحْلَفَنِي سَيِّدِي قَائِلًا: لَا تَأْخُذْ زَوْجَةً لِٱبْنِي مِنْ بَنَاتِ ٱلْكَنْعَانِيِّينَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَنَا سَاكِنٌ فِي أَرْضِهِمْ، ٣٧ 37
And my master caused me to swear, saying, You shall not take a wife to my son of the daughters of the Chananites, among whom I sojourn in their land.
بَلْ إِلَى بَيْتِ أَبِي تَذْهَبُ وَإِلَى عَشِيرَتِي، وَتَأْخُذُ زَوْجَةً لِٱبْنِي. ٣٨ 38
But you shall go to the house of my father, and to my tribe, and you shall take thence a wife for my son.
فَقُلْتُ لِسَيِّدِي: رُبَّمَا لَا تَتْبَعُنِي ٱلْمَرْأَةُ. ٣٩ 39
And I said to my master, Haply the woman will not go with me.
فَقَالَ لِي: إِنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ ٱلَّذِي سِرْتُ أَمَامَهُ يُرْسِلُ مَلَاكَهُ مَعَكَ وَيُنْجِحُ طَرِيقَكَ، فَتَأْخُذُ زَوْجَةً لِٱبْنِي مِنْ عَشِيرَتِي وَمِنْ بَيْتِ أَبِي. ٤٠ 40
And he said to me, The Lord God to whom I have been acceptable in his presence, himself shall send out his angel with you, and shall prosper your journey, and you shall take a wife for my son of my tribe, and of the house of my father.
حِينَئِذٍ تَتَبَرَّأُ مِنْ حَلْفِي حِينَمَا تَجِيءُ إِلَى عَشِيرَتِي. وَإِنْ لَمْ يُعْطُوكَ فَتَكُونُ بَرِيئًا مِنْ حَلْفِي. ٤١ 41
Then shall you be clear from my curse, for whenever you shall have come to my tribe, and they shall not give her to you, then shall you be clear from my oath.
فَجِئْتُ ٱلْيَوْمَ إِلَى ٱلْعَيْنِ، وَقُلْتُ: أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ سَيِّدِي إِبْرَاهِيمَ، إِنْ كُنْتَ تُنْجِحُ طَرِيقِي ٱلَّذِي أَنَا سَالِكٌ فِيهِ، ٤٢ 42
And having come this day to the well, I said, Lord God of my master Abraam, if you prosper my journey on which I am now going,
فَهَا أَنَا وَاقِفٌ عَلَى عَيْنِ ٱلْمَاءِ، وَلْيَكُنْ أَنَّ ٱلْفَتَاةَ ٱلَّتِي تَخْرُجُ لِتَسْتَقِيَ وَأَقُولُ لَهَا: ٱسْقِينِي قَلِيلَ مَاءٍ مِنْ جَرَّتِكِ، ٤٣ 43
behold, I stand by the well of water, and the daughters of the men of the city come forth to draw water, and it shall be [that] the damsel to whom I shall say, Give me a little water to drink out of your pitcher,
فَتَقُولَ لِيَ: ٱشْرَبْ أَنْتَ، وَأَنَا أَسْتَقِي لِجِمَالِكَ أَيْضًا، هِيَ ٱلْمَرْأَةُ ٱلَّتِي عَيَّنَهَا ٱلرَّبُّ لِٱبْنِ سَيِّدِي. ٤٤ 44
and she shall say to me, Both drink you, and I will draw water for your camels, this [shall be] the wife whom the Lord has prepared for his own servant Isaac; and hereby shall I know that you have wrought mercy with my master Abraam.
وَإِذْ كُنْتُ أَنَا لَمْ أَفْرَغْ بَعْدُ مِنَ ٱلْكَلَامِ فِي قَلْبِي، إِذَا رِفْقَةُ خَارِجَةٌ وَجَرَّتُهَا عَلَى كَتِفِهَا، فَنَزَلَتْ إِلَى ٱلْعَيْنِ وَٱسْتَقَتْ. فَقُلْتُ لَهَا: ٱسْقِينِي. ٤٥ 45
And it came to pass before I had done speaking in my mind, straightway Rebecca came forth, having her pitcher on her shoulders; and she went down to the well, and drew water; and I said to her, Give me to drink.
فَأَسْرَعَتْ وَأَنْزَلَتْ جَرَّتَهَا عَنْهَا وَقَالَتِ: ٱشْرَبْ وَأَنَا أَسْقِي جِمَالَكَ أَيْضًا. فَشَرِبْتُ، وَسَقَتِ ٱلْجِمَالَ أَيْضًا. ٤٦ 46
And she hasted and let down her pitcher on her arm from her head, and said, Drink you, and I will give your camels drink; and I drank, and she gave the camels drink.
فَسَأَلْتُهَا وَقُلتُ: بِنْتُ مَنْ أَنْتِ؟ فَقَالَتْ: بِنْتُ بَتُوئِيلَ بْنِ نَاحُورَ ٱلَّذِي وَلَدَتْهُ لَهُ مِلْكَةُ. فَوَضَعْتُ ٱلْخِزَامَةَ فِي أَنْفِهَا وَٱلسِّوَارَيْنِ عَلَى يَدَيْهَا. ٤٧ 47
And I asked her, and said, Whose daughter are you? tell me; and she said, I am daughter of Bathuel the son of Nachor, whom Melcha bore to him; and I put on her the ear-rings, and the bracelets on her hands.
وَخَرَرْتُ وَسَجَدْتُ لِلرَّبِّ، وَبَارَكْتُ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَ سَيِّدِي إِبْرَاهِيمَ ٱلَّذِي هَدَانِي فِي طَرِيقٍ أَمِينٍ لِآخُذَ ٱبْنَةَ أَخِي سَيِّدِي لِٱبْنِهِ. ٤٨ 48
And being well-pleased I worshipped the Lord, and I blessed the Lord the God of my master Abraam, who has prospered me in a true way, so that I should take the daughter of my master's brother for his son.
وَٱلْآنَ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تَصْنَعُونَ مَعْرُوفًا وَأَمَانَةً إِلَى سَيِّدِي فَأَخْبِرُونِي، وَإِلَا فَأَخْبِرُونِي لِأَنْصَرِفَ يَمِينًا أَوْ شِمَالًا». ٤٩ 49
If then you [will] deal mercifully and justly with my lord, [tell me], and if not, tell me, that I may turn to the right hand or to the left.
فَأَجَابَ لَابَانُ وَبَتُوئِيلُ وَقَالَا: «مِنْ عِنْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ خَرَجَ ٱلْأَمْرُ. لَا نَقْدِرُ أَنْ نُكَلِّمَكَ بِشَرٍّ أَوْ خَيْرٍ. ٥٠ 50
And Laban and Bathuel answered and said, This matter has come forth from the Lord, we shall not be able to answer you bad or good.
هُوَذَا رِفْقَةُ قُدَّامَكَ. خُذْهَا وَٱذْهَبْ. فَلْتَكُنْ زَوْجَةً لِٱبْنِ سَيِّدِكَ، كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ». ٥١ 51
Behold, Rebecca is before you, take her and go away, and let her be wife to the son of your master, as the Lord has said.
وَكَانَ عِنْدَمَا سَمِعَ عَبْدُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ كَلَامَهُمْ أَنَّهُ سَجَدَ لِلرَّبِّ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٥٢ 52
And it came to pass when the servant of Abraam heard these words, he bowed himself to the Lord down to the earth.
وَأَخْرَجَ ٱلْعَبْدُ آنِيَةَ فِضَّةٍ وَآنِيَةَ ذَهَبٍ وَثِيَابًا وَأَعْطَاهَا لِرِفْقَةَ، وَأَعْطَى تُحَفًا لِأَخِيهَا وَلِأُمِّهَا. ٥٣ 53
And the servant having brought forth jewels of silver and gold and raiment, gave them to Rebecca, and gave gifts to her brother, and to her mother.
فَأَكَلَ وَشَرِبَ هُوَ وَٱلرِّجَالُ ٱلَّذِينَ مَعَهُ وَبَاتُوا. ثُمَّ قَامُوا صَبَاحًا فَقَالَ: «ٱصْرِفُونِي إِلَى سَيِّدِي». ٥٤ 54
And both he and the men with him ate and drank and went to sleep. And he arose in the morning and said, Send me away, that I may go to my master.
فَقَالَ أَخُوهَا وَأُمُّهَا: «لِتَمْكُثِ ٱلْفَتَاةُ عِنْدَنَا أَيَّامًا أَوْ عَشْرَةً، بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ تَمْضِي». ٥٥ 55
And her brethren and her mother said, Let the virgin remain with us about ten days, and after that she shall depart.
فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «لَا تُعَوِّقُونِي وَٱلرَّبُّ قَدْ أَنْجَحَ طَرِيقِي. اِصْرِفُونِي لِأَذْهَبَ إِلَى سَيِّدِي». ٥٦ 56
But he said to them, Hinder me not, for the Lord has prospered my journey for me; send me away, that I may depart to my master.
فَقَالُوا: «نَدْعُو ٱلْفَتَاةَ وَنَسْأَلُهَا شِفَاهًا». ٥٧ 57
And they said, Let us call the damsel, and enquire at her mouth.
فَدَعَوْا رِفْقَةَ وَقَالُوا لَهَا: «هَلْ تَذْهَبِينَ مَعَ هَذَا ٱلرَّجُلِ؟» فَقَالَتْ: «أَذْهَبُ». ٥٨ 58
And they called Rebecca, and said to her, Will you go with this man? and she said, I will go.
فَصَرَفُوا رِفْقَةَ أُخْتَهُمْ وَمُرْضِعَتَهَا وَعَبْدَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَرِجَالَهُ. ٥٩ 59
So they sent forth Rebecca their sister, and her goods, and the servant of Abraam, and his attendants.
وَبَارَكُوا رِفْقَةَ وَقَالُوا لَهَا: «أَنْتِ أُخْتُنَا. صِيرِي أُلُوفَ رِبْوَاتٍ، وَلْيَرِثْ نَسْلُكِ بَابَ مُبْغِضِيهِ». ٦٠ 60
And they blessed Rebecca, and said to her, You are our sister; become you thousands of myriads, and let your seed possess the cities of their enemies.
فَقَامَتْ رِفْقَةُ وَفَتَيَاتُهَا وَرَكِبْنَ عَلَى ٱلْجِمَالِ وَتَبِعْنَ ٱلرَّجُلَ. فَأَخَذَ ٱلْعَبْدُ رِفْقَةَ وَمَضَى. ٦١ 61
And Rebecca rose up and her maidens, and they mounted the camels and went with the man; and the servant having taken up Rebecca, departed.
وَكَانَ إِسْحَاقُ قَدْ أَتَى مِنْ وُرُودِ بِئْرِ لَحَيْ رُئِي، إِذْ كَانَ سَاكِنًا فِي أَرْضِ ٱلْجَنُوبِ. ٦٢ 62
And Isaac went through the wilderness to the well of the vision, and he lived in the land toward the south.
وَخَرَجَ إِسْحَاقُ لِيَتَأَمَّلَ فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ عِنْدَ إِقْبَالِ ٱلْمَسَاءِ، فَرَفَعَ عَيْنَيْهِ وَنَظَرَ وَإِذَا جِمَالٌ مُقْبِلَةٌ. ٦٣ 63
And Isaac went forth into the plain toward evening to meditate; and having lifted up his eyes, he saw camels coming.
وَرَفَعَتْ رِفْقَةُ عَيْنَيْهَا فَرَأَتْ إِسْحَاقَ فَنَزَلَتْ عَنِ ٱلْجَمَلِ. ٦٤ 64
And Rebecca lifted up her eyes, and saw Isaac; and she alighted briskly from the camel,
وَقَالَتْ لِلْعَبْدِ: «مَنْ هَذَا ٱلرَّجُلُ ٱلْمَاشِي فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ لِلِقَائِنَا؟» فَقَالَ ٱلْعَبْدُ: «هُوَ سَيِّدِي». فَأَخَذَتِ ٱلْبُرْقُعَ وَتَغَطَّتْ. ٦٥ 65
and said to the servant, Who is that man that walks in the plain to meet us? And the servant said, This is my master; and she took her veil and covered herself.
ثُمَّ حَدَّثَ ٱلْعَبْدُ إِسْحَاقَ بِكُلِّ ٱلْأُمُورِ ٱلَّتِي صَنَعَ، ٦٦ 66
And the servant told Isaac all that he had done.
فَأَدْخَلَهَا إِسْحَاقُ إِلَى خِبَاءِ سَارَةَ أُمِّهِ، وَأَخَذَ رِفْقَةَ فَصَارَتْ لَهُ زَوْجَةً وَأَحَبَّهَا. فَتَعَزَّى إِسْحَاقُ بَعْدَ مَوْتِ أُمِّهِ. ٦٧ 67
And Isaac went into the house of his mother, and took Rebecca, and she became his wife, and he loved her; and Isaac was comforted for Sarrha his mother.
