اَلتَّكْوِينُ 4

وَعَرَفَ آدَمُ حَوَّاءَ ٱمْرَأَتَهُ فَحَبِلَتْ وَوَلَدَتْ قَايِينَ. وَقَالَتِ: «ٱقْتَنَيْتُ رَجُلًا مِنْ عِنْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ». ١ 1
The man slept with Eve his wife. She conceived and gave birth to Cain. She said, “I have produced a man with Yahweh's help.”
ثُمَّ عَادَتْ فَوَلَدَتْ أَخَاهُ هَابِيلَ. وَكَانَ هَابِيلُ رَاعِيًا لِلْغَنَمِ، وَكَانَ قَايِينُ عَامِلًا فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٢ 2
Then she gave birth to his brother Abel. Now Abel became a shepherd, but Cain cultivated the soil.
وَحَدَثَ مِنْ بَعْدِ أَيَّامٍ أَنَّ قَايِينَ قَدَّمَ مِنْ أَثْمَارِ ٱلْأَرْضِ قُرْبَانًا لِلرَّبِّ، ٣ 3
It came about that in the course of time Cain brought some of the fruit of the ground as an offering to Yahweh.
وَقَدَّمَ هَابِيلُ أَيْضًا مِنْ أَبْكَارِ غَنَمِهِ وَمِنْ سِمَانِهَا. فَنَظَرَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَى هَابِيلَ وَقُرْبَانِهِ، ٤ 4
As for Abel, he brought some of the firstborn of his flock and some of the fat. Yahweh accepted Abel and his offering,
وَلَكِنْ إِلَى قَايِينَ وَقُرْبَانِهِ لَمْ يَنْظُرْ. فَٱغْتَاظَ قَايِينُ جِدًّا وَسَقَطَ وَجْهُهُ. ٥ 5
but Cain and his offering he did not accept. So Cain was very angry, and he scowled.
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِقَايِينَ: «لِمَاذَا ٱغْتَظْتَ؟ وَلِمَاذَا سَقَطَ وَجْهُكَ؟ ٦ 6
Yahweh said to Cain, “Why are you angry and why are you scowling?
إِنْ أَحْسَنْتَ أَفَلَا رَفْعٌ؟ وَإِنْ لَمْ تُحْسِنْ فَعِنْدَ ٱلْبَابِ خَطِيَّةٌ رَابِضَةٌ، وَإِلَيْكَ ٱشْتِيَاقُهَا وَأَنْتَ تَسُودُ عَلَيْهَا». ٧ 7
If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin crouches at the door and desires to control you, but you must rule over it.”
وَكَلَّمَ قَايِينُ هَابِيلَ أَخَاهُ. وَحَدَثَ إِذْ كَانَا فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ أَنَّ قَايِينَ قَامَ عَلَى هَابِيلَ أَخِيهِ وَقَتَلَهُ. ٨ 8
Cain spoke to Abel his brother. It came about that while they were in the fields, Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him.
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِقَايِينَ: «أَيْنَ هَابِيلُ أَخُوكَ؟» فَقَالَ: «لَا أَعْلَمُ! أَحَارِسٌ أَنَا لِأَخِي؟» ٩ 9
Then Yahweh said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “I do not know. Am I my brother's keeper?”
فَقَالَ: «مَاذَا فَعَلْتَ؟ صَوْتُ دَمِ أَخِيكَ صَارِخٌ إِلَيَّ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٠ 10
Yahweh said, “What have you done? Your brother's blood is calling out to me from the ground.
فَٱلْآنَ مَلْعُونٌ أَنْتَ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي فَتَحَتْ فَاهَا لِتَقْبَلَ دَمَ أَخِيكَ مِنْ يَدِكَ. ١١ 11
Now cursed are you from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand.
مَتَى عَمِلْتَ ٱلْأَرْضَ لَا تَعُودُ تُعْطِيكَ قُوَّتَهَا. تَائِهًا وَهَارِبًا تَكُونُ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ». ١٢ 12
When you cultivate the ground, from now on it will not yield to you its strength. A fugitive and a wanderer you will be in the earth.”
فَقَالَ قَايِينُ لِلرَّبِّ: «ذَنْبِي أَعْظَمُ مِنْ أَنْ يُحْتَمَلَ. ١٣ 13
Cain said to Yahweh, “My punishment is greater than I can bear.
إِنَّكَ قَدْ طَرَدْتَنِي ٱلْيَوْمَ عَنْ وَجْهِ ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَمِنْ وَجْهِكَ أَخْتَفِي وَأَكُونُ تَائِهًا وَهَارِبًا فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ، فَيَكُونُ كُلُّ مَنْ وَجَدَنِي يَقْتُلُنِي». ١٤ 14
Indeed, you have driven me out this day from this ground, and I will be hidden from your face. I will be a fugitive and a wanderer in the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.”
فَقَالَ لَهُ ٱلرَّبُّ: «لِذَلِكَ كُلُّ مَنْ قَتَلَ قَايِينَ فَسَبْعَةَ أَضْعَافٍ يُنْتَقَمُ مِنْهُ». وَجَعَلَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِقَايِينَ عَلَامَةً لِكَيْ لَا يَقْتُلَهُ كُلُّ مَنْ وَجَدَهُ. ١٥ 15
Yahweh said to him, “If anyone kills Cain, vengeance will be taken on him sevenfold.” Then Yahweh put a mark on Cain, so that if anyone found him, that person would not attack him.
فَخَرَجَ قَايِينُ مِنْ لَدُنِ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَسَكَنَ فِي أَرْضِ نُودٍ شَرْقِيَّ عَدْنٍ. ١٦ 16
So Cain went out from the presence of Yahweh and lived in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
وَعَرَفَ قَايِينُ ٱمْرَأَتَهُ فَحَبِلَتْ وَوَلَدَتْ حَنُوكَ. وَكَانَ يَبْنِي مَدِينَةً، فَدَعَا ٱسْمَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ كَٱسْمِ ٱبْنِهِ حَنُوكَ. ١٧ 17
Cain slept with his wife and she conceived. She gave birth to Enoch. He built a city and named it after his son Enoch.
وَوُلِدَ لِحَنُوكَ عِيرَادُ. وَعِيرَادُ وَلَدَ مَحُويَائِيلَ. وَمَحُويَائِيلُ وَلَدَ مَتُوشَائِيلَ. وَمَتُوشَائِيلُ وَلَدَ لَامَكَ. ١٨ 18
To Enoch was born Irad. Irad became the father of Mehujael. Mehujael became the father of Methushael. Methushael became the father of Lamech.
وَٱتَّخَذَ لَامَكُ لِنَفْسِهِ ٱمْرَأَتَيْنِ: ٱسْمُ ٱلْوَاحِدَةِ عَادَةُ، وَٱسْمُ ٱلْأُخْرَى صِلَّةُ. ١٩ 19
Lamech took for himself two wives. The name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other was Zillah.
فَوَلَدَتْ عَادَةُ يَابَالَ ٱلَّذِي كَانَ أَبًا لِسَاكِنِي ٱلْخِيَامِ وَرُعَاةِ ٱلْمَوَاشِي. ٢٠ 20
Adah gave birth to Jabal. He was the father of those who lived in tents who have livestock.
وَٱسْمُ أَخِيهِ يُوبَالُ ٱلَّذِي كَانَ أَبًا لِكُلِّ ضَارِبٍ بِٱلْعُودِ وَٱلْمِزْمَارِ. ٢١ 21
His brother's name was Jubal. He was the father of those who play the harp and pipe.
وَصِلَّةُ أَيْضًا وَلَدَتْ تُوبَالَ قَايِينَ ٱلضَّارِبَ كُلَّ آلَةٍ مِنْ نُحَاسٍ وَحَدِيدٍ. وَأُخْتُ تُوبَالَ قَايِينَ نَعْمَةُ. ٢٢ 22
As for Zillah, she bore Tubal-Cain, the forger of tools of bronze and iron. The sister of Tubal-Cain was Naamah.
وَقَالَ لَامَكُ لِٱمْرَأَتَيْهِ عَادَةَ وَصِلَّةَ: «ٱسْمَعَا قَوْلِي يَا ٱمْرَأَتَيْ لَامَكَ، وَأَصْغِيَا لِكَلَامِي. فَإِنِّي قَتَلْتُ رَجُلًا لِجُرْحِي، وَفَتىً لِشَدْخِي. ٢٣ 23
Lamech said to his wives, “Adah and Zillah, listen to my voice; you wives of Lamech, listen to what I say. For I have killed a man for wounding me, a young man for bruising me.
إِنَّهُ يُنْتَقَمُ لِقَايِينَ سَبْعَةَ أَضْعَافٍ، وَأَمَّا لِلَامَكَ فَسَبْعَةً وَسَبْعِينَ». ٢٤ 24
If Cain is avenged seven times, then Lamech will be avenged seventy-seven times.”
وَعَرَفَ آدَمُ ٱمْرَأَتَهُ أَيْضًا، فَوَلَدَتِ ٱبْنًا وَدَعَتِ ٱسْمَهُ شِيثًا، قَائِلَةً: «لِأَنَّ ٱللهَ قَدْ وَضَعَ لِي نَسْلًا آخَرَ عِوَضًا عَنْ هَابِيلَ». لِأَنَّ قَايِينَ كَانَ قَدْ قَتَلَهُ. ٢٥ 25
Adam slept with his wife again, and she bore another son. She called his name Seth and said, “God has given me another son in the place of Abel, for Cain killed him.”
وَلِشِيثَ أَيْضًا وُلِدَ ٱبْنٌ فَدَعَا ٱسْمَهُ أَنُوشَ. حِينَئِذٍ ٱبْتُدِئَ أَنْ يُدْعَى بِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٢٦ 26
A son was born to Seth and he called his name Enosh. At that time people began to call on the name of Yahweh.
