اَلتَّكْوِينُ 33

وَرَفَعَ يَعْقُوبُ عَيْنَيْهِ وَنَظَرَ وَإِذَا عِيسُو مُقْبِلٌ وَمَعَهُ أَرْبَعُ مِئَةِ رَجُلٍ، فَقَسَمَ ٱلْأَوْلَادَ عَلَى لَيْئَةَ وَعَلَى رَاحِيلَ وَعَلَى ٱلْجَارِيَتَيْنِ. ١ 1
Jacob looked up and, behold, Esau was coming, and with him were four hundred men. Jacob divided the children among Leah, Rachel, and the two female servants.
وَوَضَعَ ٱلْجَارِيَتَيْنِ وَأَوْلَادَهُمَا أَوَّلًا، وَلَيْئَةَ وَأَوْلَادَهَا وَرَاءَهُمْ، وَرَاحِيلَ وَيُوسُفَ أَخِيرًا. ٢ 2
Then he put the female servants and their children in front, followed by Leah and her children, and followed by Rachel and Joseph last of all.
وَأَمَّا هُوَ فَٱجْتَازَ قُدَّامَهُمْ وَسَجَدَ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ سَبْعَ مَرَّاتٍ حَتَّى ٱقْتَرَبَ إِلَى أَخِيهِ. ٣ 3
He himself went on ahead of them. He bowed toward the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother.
فَرَكَضَ عِيسُو لِلِقَائِهِ وَعَانَقَهُ وَوَقَعَ عَلَى عُنُقِهِ وَقَبَّلَهُ، وَبَكَيَا. ٤ 4
Esau ran to meet him, embraced him, hugged his neck, and kissed him. Then they wept.
ثُمَّ رَفَعَ عَيْنَيْهِ وَأَبْصَرَ ٱلنِّسَاءَ وَٱلْأَوْلَادَ وَقَالَ: «مَا هَؤُلَاءِ مِنْكَ؟» فَقَالَ: «ٱلْأَوْلَادُ ٱلَّذِينَ أَنْعَمَ ٱللهُ بِهِمْ عَلَى عَبْدِكَ». ٥ 5
When Esau looked up, he saw the women and the children. He said, “Who are these people with you?” Jacob said, “The children whom God has graciously given your servant.”
فَٱقْتَرَبَتِ ٱلْجَارِيَتَانِ هُمَا وَأَوْلَادُهُمَا وَسَجَدَتَا. ٦ 6
Then the female servants came forward with their children, and they bowed down.
ثُمَّ ٱقْتَرَبَتْ لَيْئَةُ أَيْضًا وَأَوْلَادُهَا وَسَجَدُوا. وَبَعْدَ ذَلِكَ ٱقْتَرَبَ يُوسُفُ وَرَاحِيلُ وَسَجَدَا. ٧ 7
Next Leah also and her children came forward and bowed down. Finally Joseph and Rachel came forward and bowed down.
فَقَالَ: «مَاذَا مِنْكَ كُلُّ هَذَا ٱلْجَيْشِ ٱلَّذِي صَادَفْتُهُ؟» فَقَالَ: «لِأَجِدَ نِعْمَةً فِي عَيْنَيْ سَيِّدِي». ٨ 8
Esau said, “What do you mean by all these groups that I met?” Jacob said, “To find favor in the sight of my master.”
فَقَالَ عِيسُو: «لِي كَثِيرٌ، يَا أَخِي. لِيَكُنْ لَكَ ٱلَّذِي لَكَ». ٩ 9
Esau said, “I have enough, my brother. Keep what you have for yourself.”
فَقَالَ يَعْقُوبُ: «لَا. إِنْ وَجَدْتُ نِعْمَةً فِي عَيْنَيْكَ تَأْخُذْ هَدِيَّتِي مِنْ يَدِي، لِأَنِّي رَأَيْتُ وَجْهَكَ كَمَا يُرَى وَجْهُ ٱللهِ، فَرَضِيتَ عَلَيَّ. ١٠ 10
Jacob said, “No, please, if I have found favor in your eyes, then accept my gift from my hand, for indeed, I have seen your face, and it is like seeing the face of God, and you have accepted me.
خُذْ بَرَكَتِي ٱلَّتِي أُتِيَ بِهَا إِلَيْكَ، لِأَنَّ ٱللهَ قَدْ أَنْعَمَ عَلَيَّ وَلِي كُلُّ شَيْءٍ». وَأَلَحَّ عَلَيْهِ فَأَخَذَ. ١١ 11
Please accept my gift that was brought to you, because God has dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough.” Thus Jacob urged him, and Esau accepted it.
ثُمَّ قَالَ: «لِنَرْحَلْ وَنَذْهَبْ، وَأَذْهَبُ أَنَا قُدَّامَكَ». ١٢ 12
Then Esau said, “Let us be on our way. I will go before you.”
فَقَالَ لَهُ: «سَيِّدِي عَالِمٌ أَنَّ ٱلْأَوْلَادَ رَخْصَةٌ، وَٱلْغَنَمَ وَٱلْبَقَرَ ٱلَّتِي عِنْدِي مُرْضِعَةٌ، فَإِنِ ٱسْتَكَدُّوهَا يَوْمًا وَاحِدًا مَاتَتْ كُلُّ ٱلْغَنَمِ. ١٣ 13
Jacob said to him, “My master knows that the children are young, and that the sheep and the cattle are nursing their young. If they are driven hard even one day, all the animals will die.
لِيَجْتَزْ سَيِّدِي قُدَّامَ عَبْدِهِ، وَأَنَا أَسْتَاقُ عَلَى مَهَلِي فِي إِثْرِ ٱلْأَمْلَاكِ ٱلَّتِي قُدَّامِي، وَفِي إِثْرِ ٱلْأَوْلَادِ، حَتَّى أَجِيءَ إِلَى سَيِّدِي إِلَى سَعِيرَ». ١٤ 14
Please let my master go on ahead of his servant. I will travel more slowly, at the pace of the livestock that are before me, and at the pace of the children, until I come to my master in Seir.”
فَقَالَ عِيسُو: «أَتْرُكُ عِنْدَكَ مِنَ ٱلْقَوْمِ ٱلَّذِينَ مَعِي». فَقَالَ: «لِمَاذَا؟ دَعْنِي أَجِدْ نِعْمَةً فِي عَيْنَيْ سَيِّدِي». ١٥ 15
Esau said, “Let me leave with you some of my men who are with me.” But Jacob said, “Why do that? Let me find favor in the sight of my lord.”
فَرَجَعَ عِيسُو ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمَ فِي طَرِيقِهِ إِلَى سَعِيرَ. ١٦ 16
So Esau that day started on his way back to Seir.
وَأَمَّا يَعْقُوبُ فَٱرْتَحَلَ إِلَى سُكُّوتَ، وَبَنَى لِنَفْسِهِ بَيْتًا، وَصَنَعَ لِمَوَاشِيهِ مِظَالًا. لِذَلِكَ دَعَا ٱسْمَ ٱلْمَكَانِ «سُكُّوتَ». ١٧ 17
Jacob traveled to Succoth, built himself a house, and made shelters for his livestock. Therefore the name of the place is called Succoth.
ثُمَّ أَتَى يَعْقُوبُ سَالِمًا إِلَى مَدِينَةِ شَكِيمَ ٱلَّتِي فِي أَرْضِ كَنْعَانَ، حِينَ جَاءَ مِنْ فَدَّانِ أَرَامَ. وَنَزَلَ أَمَامَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ. ١٨ 18
When Jacob came from Paddan Aram, he arrived safely at the city of Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan. He camped near the city.
وَٱبْتَاعَ قِطْعَةَ ٱلْحَقْلِ ٱلَّتِي نَصَبَ فِيهَا خَيْمَتَهُ مِنْ يَدِ بَنِي حَمُورَ أَبِي شَكِيمَ بِمِئَةِ قَسِيطَةٍ. ١٩ 19
Then he bought the piece of ground where he had pitched his tent from the sons of Hamor, Shechem's father, for a hundred pieces of silver.
وَأَقَامَ هُنَاكَ مَذْبَحًا وَدَعَاهُ «إِيلَ إِلَهَ إِسْرَائِيلَ». ٢٠ 20
There he set up an altar and called it El Elohe Israel.
