تكوين 37

وَسَكَنَ يَعْقُوبُ فِي أَرْضِ غُرْبَةِ أَبِيهِ، فِي أَرْضِ كَنْعَانَ. ١ 1
Jacob lived in the land where his father had sojourned, in the land of Canaan.
هَذِهِ مَوَالِيدُ يَعْقُوبَ: يُوسُفُ إِذْ كَانَ ٱبْنَ سَبْعَ عَشَرَةَ سَنَةً، كَانَ يَرْعَى مَعَ إِخْوَتِهِ ٱلْغَنَمَ وَهُوَ غُلَامٌ عِنْدَ بَنِي بِلْهَةَ وَبَنِي زِلْفَةَ ٱمْرَأَتَيْ أَبِيهِ، وَأَتَى يُوسُفُ بِنَمِيمَتِهِمِ ٱلرَّدِيئَةِ إِلَى أَبِيهِمْ. ٢ 2
These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, tended the flock with his brothers; he was an assistant to the sons of Bilhah and Zilpah, his father's wives. And Joseph brought a bad report about them to their father.
وَأَمَّا إِسْرَائِيلُ فَأَحَبَّ يُوسُفَ أَكْثَرَ مِنْ سَائِرِ بَنِيهِ لِأَنَّهُ ٱبْنُ شَيْخُوخَتِهِ، فَصَنَعَ لَهُ قَمِيصًا مُلَوَّنًا. ٣ 3
Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he had been born to him in his old age. And he made a long ornamented robe for him.
فَلَمَّا رَأَى إِخْوَتُهُ أَنَّ أَبَاهُمْ أَحَبَّهُ أَكْثَرَ مِنْ جَمِيعِ إِخْوَتِهِ أَبْغَضُوهُ، وَلَمْ يَسْتَطِيعُوا أَنْ يُكَلِّمُوهُ بِسَلَامٍ. ٤ 4
His brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, and they hated him, and couldn't speak a kind word to him.
وَحَلُمَ يُوسُفُ حُلْمًا وَأَخْبَرَ إِخْوَتَهُ، فَٱزْدَادُوا أَيْضًا بُغْضًا لَهُ. ٥ 5
Now Joseph had a dream, and he told it to his brothers, and they hated him all the more.
فَقَالَ لَهُمُ: «ٱسْمَعُوا هَذَا ٱلْحُلْمَ ٱلَّذِي حَلُمْتُ: ٦ 6
He said to them, "Please listen to this dream I had:
فَهَا نَحْنُ حَازِمُونَ حُزَمًا فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ، وَإِذَا حُزْمَتِي قَامَتْ وَٱنْتَصَبَتْ، فَٱحْتَاطَتْ حُزَمُكُمْ وَسَجَدَتْ لِحُزْمَتِي». ٧ 7
And look, we were binding sheaves in the field, and look, my sheaf arose and also stood upright. And look, your sheaves gathered around it and bowed down to my sheaf."
فَقَالَ لَهُ إِخْوَتُهُ: «أَلَعَلَّكَ تَمْلِكُ عَلَيْنَا مُلْكًا أَمْ تَتَسَلَّطُ عَلَيْنَا تَسَلُّطًا؟» وَٱزْدَادُوا أَيْضًا بُغْضًا لَهُ مِنْ أَجْلِ أَحْلَامِهِ وَمِنْ أَجْلِ كَلَامِهِ. ٨ 8
Then his brothers said to him, "Will you indeed reign over us? Or will you indeed rule over us?" So they hated him all the more for his dreams and for what he said.
ثُمَّ حَلُمَ أَيْضًا حُلْمًا آخَرَ وَقَصَّهُ عَلَى إِخْوَتِهِ، فَقَالَ: «إِنِّي قَدْ حَلُمْتُ حُلْمًا أَيْضًا، وَإِذَا ٱلشَّمْسُ وَٱلْقَمَرُ وَأَحَدَ عَشَرَ كَوْكَبًا سَاجِدَةٌ لِي». ٩ 9
And he had another dream, and told it to his father and to his brothers, and said, "Look, I had yet another dream, and look, the sun and the moon and eleven stars bowed down to me."
وَقَصَّهُ عَلَى أَبِيهِ وَعَلَى إِخْوَتِهِ، فَٱنْتَهَرَهُ أَبُوهُ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «مَا هَذَا ٱلْحُلْمُ ٱلَّذِي حَلُمْتَ؟ هَلْ نَأْتِي أَنَا وَأُمُّكَ وَإِخْوَتُكَ لِنَسْجُدَ لَكَ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ؟» ١٠ 10
When he told it to his father and to his brothers, his father rebuked him, and said to him, "What is this dream that you had? Will I and your mother and your brothers indeed come and bow down to the ground in front of you?"
فَحَسَدَهُ إِخْوَتُهُ، وَأَمَّا أَبُوهُ فَحَفِظَ ٱلْأَمْرَ. ١١ 11
His brothers were jealous of him, but his father kept thinking about the matter.
وَمَضَى إِخْوَتُهُ لِيَرْعَوْا غَنَمَ أَبِيهِمْ عِنْدَ شَكِيمَ. ١٢ 12
Now his brothers went to pasture their father's flock near Shechem.
فَقَالَ إِسْرَائِيلُ لِيُوسُفَ: «أَلَيْسَ إِخْوَتُكَ يَرْعَوْنَ عِنْدَ شَكِيمَ؟ تَعَالَ فَأُرْسِلَكَ إِلَيْهِمْ». فَقَالَ لَهُ: «هَأَنَذَا». ١٣ 13
And Israel said to Joseph, "Aren't your brothers pasturing the flock near Shechem? Come, and I will send you to them." And he said to him, "I am ready."
فَقَالَ لَهُ: «ٱذْهَبِ ٱنْظُرْ سَلَامَةَ إِخْوَتِكَ وَسَلَامَةَ ٱلْغَنَمِ وَرُدَّ لِي خَبَرًا». فَأَرْسَلَهُ مِنْ وَطَاءِ حَبْرُونَ فَأَتَى إِلَى شَكِيمَ. ١٤ 14
So he said to him, "Go now, see whether it is well with your brothers and well with the flock, and report back to me." So he sent him from the Valley of Hebron, and he came to Shechem.
فَوَجَدَهُ رَجُلٌ وَإِذَا هُوَ ضَالٌّ فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ. فَسَأَلَهُ ٱلرَّجُلُ قَائِلًا: «مَاذَا تَطْلُبُ؟» ١٥ 15
And a man found him, and look, he was wandering in the field. And the man asked him, "What are you looking for?"
فَقَالَ: «أَنَا طَالِبٌ إِخْوَتِي. أَخْبِرْنِي «أَيْنَ يَرْعَوْنَ؟». ١٦ 16
He said, "I am looking for my brothers. Tell me, please, where they are pasturing the flock."
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّجُلُ: «قَدِ ٱرْتَحَلُوا مِنْ هُنَا، لِأَنِّي سَمِعْتُهُمْ يَقُولُونَ: لِنَذْهَبْ إِلَى دُوثَانَ». فَذَهَبَ يُوسُفُ وَرَاءَ إِخْوَتِهِ فَوَجَدَهُمْ فِي دُوثَانَ. ١٧ 17
The man said, "They have left here, for I heard them say, 'Let us go to Dothan.'" So Joseph went after his brothers, and found them in Dothan.
فَلَمَّا أَبْصَرُوهُ مِنْ بَعِيدٍ، قَبْلَمَا ٱقْتَرَبَ إِلَيْهِمِ، ٱحْتَالُوا لَهُ لِيُمِيتُوهُ. ١٨ 18
Now they saw him in the distance, and before he reached them they plotted against him to kill him.
فَقَالَ بَعْضُهُمْ لِبَعْضٍ: «هُوَذَا هَذَا صَاحِبُ ٱلْأَحْلَامِ قَادِمٌ. ١٩ 19
And they said to one another, "Look, this dreamer is coming.
فَٱلْآنَ هَلُمَّ نَقْتُلْهُ وَنَطْرَحْهُ فِي إِحْدَى ٱلْآبَارِ وَنَقُولُ: وَحْشٌ رَدِيءٌ أَكَلَهُ. فَنَرَى مَاذَا تَكُونُ أَحْلَامُهُ». ٢٠ 20
Come now, and let's kill him and throw him into one of the cisterns, and we will say that a vicious animal has devoured him. Then we will see what will become of his dreams."
فَسَمِعَ رَأُوبَيْنُ وَأَنْقَذَهُ مِنْ أَيْدِيهِمْ، وَقَالَ: «لَا نَقْتُلُهُ». ٢١ 21
But Reuben heard it, and delivered him out of their hands, and said, "Let's not take his life."
وَقَالَ لَهُمْ رَأُوبَيْنُ: «لَا تَسْفِكُوا دَمًا. اِطْرَحُوهُ فِي هَذِهِ ٱلْبِئْرِ ٱلَّتِي فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ وَلَا تَمُدُّوا إِلَيْهِ يَدًا». لِكَيْ يُنْقِذَهُ مِنْ أَيْدِيهِمْ لِيَرُدَّهُ إِلَى أَبِيهِ. ٢٢ 22
Reuben said to them, "Shed no blood. Throw him into this pit that is in the wilderness, but lay no hand on him"—that he might deliver him out of their hands, to restore him to his father.
فَكَانَ لَمَّا جَاءَ يُوسُفُ إِلَى إِخْوَتِهِ أَنَّهُمْ خَلَعُوا عَنْ يُوسُفَ قَمِيصَهُ، ٱلْقَمِيصَ ٱلْمُلَوَّنَ ٱلَّذِي عَلَيْهِ، ٢٣ 23
It happened, when Joseph came to his brothers, they stripped Joseph of his robe, the long ornamented robe that he was wearing.
وَأَخَذُوهُ وَطَرَحُوهُ فِي ٱلْبِئْرِ. وَأَمَّا ٱلْبِئْرُ فَكَانَتْ فَارِغَةً لَيْسَ فِيهَا مَاءٌ. ٢٤ 24
And they took him and threw him into the cistern. (Now the pit was empty. There was no water in it.)
ثُمَّ جَلَسُوا لِيَأْكُلُوا طَعَامًا. فَرَفَعُوا عُيُونَهُمْ وَنَظَرُوا وَإِذَا قَافِلَةُ إِسْمَاعِيلِيِّينَ مُقْبِلَةٌ مِنْ جِلْعَادَ، وَجِمَالُهُمْ حَامِلَةٌ كَثِيرَاءَ وَبَلَسَانًا وَلَاذَنًا، ذَاهِبِينَ لِيَنْزِلُوا بِهَا إِلَى مِصْرَ. ٢٥ 25
Then they sat down to eat a meal. And they looked up, and look, a caravan of Ishmaelites was coming from Gilead, with their camels bearing aromatic gum and balm and myrrh on their way to carry them down to Egypt.
فَقَالَ يَهُوذَا لِإِخْوَتِهِ: «مَا ٱلْفَائِدَةُ أَنْ نَقْتُلَ أَخَانَا وَنُخْفِيَ دَمَهُ؟ ٢٦ 26
Then Judah said to his brothers, "What profit is it if we kill our brother and conceal his blood?
تَعَالَوْا فَنَبِيعَهُ لِلْإِسْمَاعِيلِيِّينَ، وَلَا تَكُنْ أَيْدِينَا عَلَيْهِ لِأَنَّهُ أَخُونَا وَلَحْمُنَا». فَسَمِعَ لَهُ إِخْوَتُهُ. ٢٧ 27
Come, and let's sell him to the Ishmaelites, and not lay a hand on him, for he is our brother, our flesh." And his brothers agreed.
وَٱجْتَازَ رِجَالٌ مِدْيَانِيُّونَ تُجَّارٌ، فَسَحَبُوا يُوسُفَ وَأَصْعَدُوهُ مِنَ ٱلْبِئْرِ، وَبَاعُوا يُوسُفَ لِلْإِسْمَاعِيلِيِّينَ بِعِشْرِينَ مِنَ ٱلْفِضَّةِ. فَأَتَوْا بِيُوسُفَ إِلَى مِصْرَ. ٢٨ 28
So the Midianites merchants passed by, and they pulled him up and lifted Joseph out of the cistern, and sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites for twenty pieces of silver. And they brought Joseph to Egypt.
وَرَجَعَ رَأُوبَيْنُ إِلَى ٱلْبِئْرِ، وَإِذَا يُوسُفُ لَيْسَ فِي ٱلْبِئْرِ، فَمَزَّقَ ثِيَابَهُ. ٢٩ 29
And Reuben returned to the cistern and saw that Joseph wasn't in the cistern; and he tore his clothes.
ثُمَّ رَجَعَ إِلَى إِخْوَتِهِ وَقَالَ: «ٱلْوَلَدُ لَيْسَ مَوْجُودًا، وَأَنَا إِلَى أَيْنَ أَذْهَبُ؟». ٣٠ 30
He went back to his brothers and said, "The boy is gone. Now, what am I to do?"
فَأَخَذُوا قَمِيصَ يُوسُفَ وَذَبَحُوا تَيْسًا مِنَ ٱلْمِعْزَى وَغَمَسُوا ٱلْقَمِيصَ فِي ٱلدَّمِ. ٣١ 31
They took Joseph's robe and killed a male goat and dipped the robe in the blood.
وَأَرْسَلُوا ٱلْقَمِيصَ ٱلْمُلَوَّنَ وَأَحْضَرُوهُ إِلَى أَبِيهِمْ وَقَالُوا: «وَجَدْنَا هَذَا. حَقِّقْ أَقَمِيصُ ٱبْنِكَ هُوَ أَمْ لَا؟». ٣٢ 32
And they sent the long ornamented robe and they brought it to their father, and said, "We found this. Please examine it to see whether it is your son's robe or not."
فَتَحَقَّقَهُ وَقَالَ: «قَمِيصُ ٱبْنِي! وَحْشٌ رَدِيءٌ أَكَلَهُ، ٱفْتُرِسَ يُوسُفُ ٱفْتِرَاسًا». ٣٣ 33
And he recognized it, and said, "It is my son's robe. A vicious animal has devoured him. Joseph is without doubt torn to pieces."
فَمَزَّقَ يَعْقُوبُ ثِيَابَهُ، وَوَضَعَ مِسْحًا عَلَى حَقَوَيْهِ، وَنَاحَ عَلَى ٱبْنِهِ أَيَّامًا كَثِيرَةً. ٣٤ 34
Then Jacob tore his clothes, and put sackcloth around his waist, and mourned for his son many days.
فَقَامَ جَمِيعُ بَنِيهِ وَجَمِيعُ بَنَاتِهِ لِيُعَزُّوهُ، فَأَبَى أَنْ يَتَعَزَّى وَقَالَ: «إِنِّي أَنْزِلُ إِلَى ٱبْنِي نَائِحًا إِلَى ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ». وَبَكَى عَلَيْهِ أَبُوهُ. (Sheol h7585) ٣٥ 35
All his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him, but he refused to be comforted. And he said, "Indeed, I will go down to Sheol to my son mourning." And his father wept for him. (Sheol h7585)
وَأَمَّا ٱلْمِدْيَانِيُّونَ فَبَاعُوهُ فِي مِصْرَ لِفُوطِيفَارَ خَصِيِّ فِرْعَوْنَ، رَئِيسِ ٱلشُّرَطِ. ٣٦ 36
Now the Midianites sold him into Egypt to Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, the captain of the guard.
