اَلتَّكْوِينُ 34

وَخَرَجَتْ دِينَةُ ٱبْنَةُ لَيْئَةَ ٱلَّتِي وَلَدَتْهَا لِيَعْقُوبَ لِتَنْظُرَ بَنَاتِ ٱلْأَرْضِ، ١ 1
Now Dinah, Leah's daughter whom she bore to Jacob, went out to meet the young women of the land.
فَرَآهَا شَكِيمُ ٱبْنُ حَمُورَ ٱلْحِوِّيِّ رَئِيسِ ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَأَخَذَهَا وَٱضْطَجَعَ مَعَهَا وَأَذَلَّهَا. ٢ 2
Shechem son of Hamor the Hivite, the prince of the land, saw her and he grabbed her, assaulted her, and slept with her.
وَتَعَلَّقَتْ نَفْسُهُ بِدِينَةَ ٱبْنَةِ يَعْقُوبَ، وَأَحَبَّ ٱلْفَتَاةَ وَلَاطَفَ ٱلْفَتاةَ. ٣ 3
He was drawn to Dinah, the daughter of Jacob. He loved the young woman and spoke tenderly to her.
فَكَلَّمَ شَكِيمُ حَمُورَ أَبَاهُ قَائِلًا: «خُذْ لِي هَذِهِ ٱلصَّبِيَّةَ زَوْجَةً». ٤ 4
Shechem spoke to his father Hamor, saying, “Get this young woman for me as a wife.”
وَسَمِعَ يَعْقُوبُ أَنَّهُ نَجَّسَ دِينَةَ ٱبْنَتَهُ. وَأَمَّا بَنُوهُ فَكَانُوا مَعَ مَوَاشِيهِ فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ، فَسَكَتَ يَعْقُوبُ حَتَّى جَاءُوا. ٥ 5
Now Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter. His sons were with his livestock in the field, so Jacob held his peace until they came.
فَخَرَجَ حَمُورُ أَبُو شَكِيمَ إِلَى يَعْقُوبَ لِيَتَكَلَّمَ مَعَهُ. ٦ 6
Hamor the father of Shechem went out to Jacob to speak with him.
وَأَتَى بَنُو يَعْقُوبَ مِنَ ٱلْحَقْلِ حِينَ سَمِعُوا. وَغَضِبَ ٱلرِّجَالُ وَٱغْتَاظُوا جِدًّا لِأَنَّهُ صَنَعَ قَبَاحَةً فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ بِمُضَاجَعَةِ ٱبْنَةِ يَعْقُوبَ، وَهَكَذَا لَا يُصْنَعُ. ٧ 7
The sons of Jacob came in from the field when they heard of the matter. The men were offended. They were very angry because he had disgraced Israel by forcing himself on Jacob's daughter, for such a thing should not have been done.
وَتَكَلَّمَ حَمُورُ مَعَهُمَ قَائِلًا: «شَكِيمُ ٱبْنِي قَدْ تَعَلَّقَتْ نَفْسُهُ بِٱبْنَتِكُمْ. أَعْطُوهُ إِيَّاهَا زَوْجَةً ٨ 8
Hamor spoke with them, saying, “My son Shechem loves your daughter. Please give her to him as a wife.
وَصَاهِرُونَا. تُعْطُونَنَا بَنَاتِكُمْ، وَتَأْخُذُونَ لَكُمْ بَنَاتِنَا. ٩ 9
Intermarry with us, give your daughters to us, and take our daughters for yourselves.
وَتَسْكُنُونَ مَعَنَا، وَتَكُونُ ٱلْأَرْضُ قُدَّامَكُمُ. ٱسْكُنُوا وَٱتَّجِرُوا فِيهَا وَتَمَلَّكُوا بِهَا». ١٠ 10
You will live with us, and the land will be open to you to live and trade in, and to acquire property.”
ثُمَّ قَالَ شَكِيمُ لِأَبِيهَا وَلإِخْوَتِهَا: «دَعُونِي أَجِدْ نِعْمَةً فِي أَعْيُنِكُمْ. فَٱلَّذِي تَقُولُونَ لِي أُعْطِي. ١١ 11
Shechem said to her father and to her brothers, “Let me find favor in your eyes, and whatever you tell me I will give.
كَثِّرُوا عَلَيَّ جِدًّا مَهْرًا وَعَطِيَّةً، فَأُعْطِيَ كَمَا تَقُولُونَ لِي. وَأَعْطُونِي ٱلْفَتَاةَ زَوْجَةً». ١٢ 12
Ask me for as great a bride price and gift as you will, and I will give whatever you say to me, but give me the young woman as a wife.”
فَأَجَابَ بَنُو يَعْقُوبَ شَكِيمَ وَحَمُورَ أَبَاهُ بِمَكْرٍ وَتَكَلَّمُوا. لِأَنَّهُ كَانَ قَدْ نَجَّسَ دِينَةَ أُخْتَهُمْ، ١٣ 13
The sons of Jacob answered Shechem and Hamor his father with deceit, because Shechem had defiled Dinah their sister.
فَقَالُوُا لَهُمَا: «لَا نَسْتَطِيعُ أَنْ نَفْعَلَ هَذَا ٱلْأَمْرَ أَنْ نُعْطِيَ أُخْتَنَا لِرَجُلٍ أَغْلَفَ، لِأَنَّهُ عَارٌ لَنَا. ١٤ 14
They said to them, “We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to anyone who is uncircumcised; for that would be a disgrace to us.
غَيْرَ أَنَّنَا بِهَذَا نُواتِيكُمْ: إِنْ صِرْتُمْ مِثْلَنَا بِخَتْنِكُمْ كُلَّ ذَكَرٍ. ١٥ 15
Only on this condition will we agree with you: If you will become circumcised as we are, if every male among you is circumcised.
نُعْطِيكُمْ بَنَاتِنَا وَنَأْخُذُ لَنَا بَنَاتِكُمْ، وَنَسْكُنُ مَعَكُمْ وَنَصِيرُ شَعْبًا وَاحِدًا. ١٦ 16
Then will we give our daughters to you, and we will take your daughters to ourselves, and we will live with you and become one people.
وَإِنْ لَمْ تَسْمَعُوا لَنَا، أَنْ تَخْتَتِنُوا، نَأْخُذُ ٱبْنَتَنَا وَنَمْضِي». ١٧ 17
But if you do not listen to us and become circumcised, then we will take our sister and we will leave.”
فَحَسُنَ كَلَامُهُمْ فِي عَيْنَيْ حَمُورَ وَفِي عَيْنَيْ شَكِيمَ بْنِ حَمُورَ. ١٨ 18
Their words pleased Hamor and his son Shechem.
وَلَمْ يَتَأَخَّرِ ٱلْغُلَامُ أَنْ يَفْعَلَ ٱلْأَمْرَ، لِأَنَّهُ كَانَ مَسْرُورًا بِٱبْنَةِ يَعْقُوبَ. وَكَانَ أَكْرَمَ جَمِيعِ بَيْتِ أَبِيهِ. ١٩ 19
The young man did not delay to do what they said, because he delighted in Jacob's daughter, and because he was the most honored person in all his father's household.
فَأَتَى حَمُورُ وَشَكِيمُ ٱبْنُهُ إِلَى بَابِ مَدِينَتِهْمَا، وَكَلَّمَا أَهْلَ مَدِينَتِهْمَا قَائِلَيْنِ: ٢٠ 20
Hamor and Shechem his son went to the gate of their city and spoke with the men of their city, saying,
«هَؤُلَاءِ ٱلْقَوْمُ مُسَالِمُونَ لَنَا. فَلْيَسْكُنُوا فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ وَيَتَّجِرُوا فِيهَا. وَهُوَذَا ٱلْأَرْضُ وَاسِعَةُ ٱلطَّرَفَيْنِ أَمَامَهُمْ. نَأْخُذُ لَنَا بَنَاتِهِمْ زَوْجَاتٍ وَنُعْطِيهِمْ بَنَاتِنَا. ٢١ 21
“These men are at peace with us, so let them live in the land and trade in it for, really, the land is large enough for them. Let us take their daughters as wives, and let us give them our daughters.
غَيْرَ أَنَّهُ بِهَذَا فَقَطْ يُواتِينَا ٱلْقَوْمُ عَلَى ٱلسَّكَنِ مَعَنَا لِنَصِيرَ شَعْبًا وَاحِدًا: بِخَتْنِنَا كُلَّ ذَكَرٍ كَمَا هُمْ مَخْتُونُونَ. ٢٢ 22
Only on this condition will the men agree to live with us and become one people: If every male among us is circumcised, as they are circumcised.
أَلَا تَكُونُ مَوَاشِيهِمْ وَمُقْتَنَاهُمْ وَكُلُّ بَهَائِمِهِمْ لَنَا؟ نُواتِيهِمْ فَقَطْ فَيَسْكُنُونَ مَعَنَا». ٢٣ 23
Will not their livestock and their property—all their animals be ours? So let us agree with them, and they will live among us.”
فَسَمِعَ لِحَمُورَ وَشَكِيمَ ٱبْنِهِ جَمِيعُ ٱلْخَارِجِينَ مِنْ بَابِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ، وَٱخْتَتَنَ كُلُّ ذَكَرٍ. كُلُّ ٱلْخَارِجِينَ مِنْ بَابِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ. ٢٤ 24
All the men of the city listened to Hamor and Shechem, his son. Every male was circumcised.
فَحَدَثَ فِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلثَّالِثِ إِذْ كَانُوا مُتَوَجِّعِينَ أَنَّ ٱبْنَيْ يَعْقُوبَ، شِمْعُونَ وَلَاوِيَ أَخَوَيْ دِينَةَ، أَخَذَا كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ سَيْفَهُ وَأَتَيَا عَلَى ٱلْمَدِينَةِ بِأَمْنٍ وَقَتَلَا كُلَّ ذَكَرٍ. ٢٥ 25
On the third day, when they were still in pain, two of the sons of Jacob (Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brothers), each took his sword and they attacked the city that was certain of its security, and they killed all the males.
وَقَتَلَا حَمُورَ وَشَكِيمَ ٱبْنَهُ بِحَدِّ ٱلسَّيْفِ، وَأَخَذَا دِينَةَ مِنْ بَيْتِ شَكِيمَ وَخَرَجَا. ٢٦ 26
They killed Hamor and his son Shechem with the edge of the sword. They took Dinah from Shechem's house and went away.
ثُمَّ أَتَى بَنُو يَعْقُوبَ عَلَى ٱلْقَتْلَى وَنَهَبُوا ٱلْمَدِينَةَ، لِأَنَّهُمْ نَجَّسُوا أُخْتَهُمْ. ٢٧ 27
The other sons of Jacob came to the dead bodies and looted the city, because the people had defiled their sister.
غَنَمَهُمْ وَبَقَرَهُمْ وَحَمِيرَهُمْ وَكُلُّ مَا فِي ٱلْمَدِينَةِ وَمَا فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ أَخَذُوهُ. ٢٨ 28
They took their flocks, their herds, their donkeys, and everything in the city and in the surrounding fields with
وَسَبَوْا وَنَهَبُوا كُلَّ ثَرْوَتِهِمْ وَكُلَّ أَطْفَالِهِمْ، وَنِسَاءَهُمْ وَكُلَّ مَا فِي ٱلْبُيُوتِ. ٢٩ 29
all their wealth. All their children and their wives, they captured. They even took everything that was in the houses.
فَقَالَ يَعْقُوبُ لِشَمْعُونَ وَلَاوِي: «كَدَّرْتُمَانِي بِتَكْرِيهِكُمَا إِيَّايَ عِنْدَ سُكَّانِ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلْكَنْعَانِيِّينَ وَٱلْفِرِزِيِّينَ، وَأَنَا نَفَرٌ قَلِيلٌ. فَيَجْتَمِعُونَ عَلَيَّ وَيَضْرِبُونَنِي، فَأَبِيدُ أَنَا وَبَيْتِي». ٣٠ 30
Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, “You have brought trouble on me, to make me stink to the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites and the Perizzites. I am few in number. If they gather themselves together against me and attack me, then I will be destroyed, I and my household.”
فَقَالَا: «أَنَظِيرَ زَانِيَةٍ يَفْعَلُ بِأُخْتِنَا؟». ٣١ 31
But Simeon and Levi said, “Should Shechem have dealt with our sister as with a prostitute?”
