اَلتَّكْوِينُ 44

ثُمَّ أَمَرَ ٱلَّذِي عَلَى بَيْتِهِ قَائِلًا: «ٱمْلَأْ عِدَالَ ٱلرِّجَالِ طَعَامًا حَسَبَ مَا يُطِيقُونَ حِمْلَهُ، وَضَعْ فِضَّةَ كُلِّ وَاحِدٍ فِي فَمِ عِدْلِهِ. ١ 1
Joseph commanded the steward of his house, saying, “Fill the men's sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put every man's money in his sack's opening.
وَطَاسِي، طَاسَ ٱلْفِضَّةِ، تَضَعُ فِي فَمِ عِدْلِ ٱلصَّغِيرِ، وَثَمَنَ قَمْحِهِ». فَفَعَلَ بِحَسَبِ كَلَامِ يُوسُفَ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ. ٢ 2
Put my cup, the silver cup, in the sack's opening of the youngest, and also his money for the grain.” The steward did as Joseph had said.
فَلَمَّا أَضَاءَ ٱلصُّبْحُ ٱنْصَرَفَ ٱلرِّجَالُ هُمْ وَحَمِيرُهُمْ. ٣ 3
The morning dawned, and the men were sent away, they and their donkeys.
وَلَمَّا كَانُوا قَدْ خَرَجُوا مِنَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ وَلَمْ يَبْتَعِدُوا، قَالَ يُوسُفُ لِلَّذِي عَلَى بَيْتِهِ: «قُمِ ٱسْعَ وَرَاءَ ٱلرِّجَالِ، وَمَتَى أَدْرَكْتَهُمْ فَقُلْ لَهُمْ: لِمَاذَا جَازَيْتُمْ شَرًّا عِوَضًا عَنْ خَيْرٍ؟ ٤ 4
When they were out of the city but were not yet far off, Joseph said to his steward, “Get up, follow after the men, and when you overtake them, say to them, 'Why have you returned evil for good?
أَلَيْسَ هَذَا هُوَ ٱلَّذِي يَشْرَبُ سَيِّدِي فِيهِ؟ وَهُوَ يَتَفَاءَلُ بِهِ. أَسَأْتُمْ فِي مَا صَنَعْتُمْ». ٥ 5
Is this not the cup from which my master drinks, and the cup that he uses for divination? You have done evil, this thing that you have done.'”
فَأَدْرَكَهُمْ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ هَذَا ٱلْكَلَامَ. ٦ 6
The steward overtook them and spoke these words to them.
فَقَالُوا لَهُ: «لِمَاذَا يَتَكَلَّمُ سَيِّدِي مِثْلَ هَذَا ٱلْكَلَامِ؟ حَاشَا لِعَبِيدِكَ أَنْ يَفْعَلُوا مِثْلَ هَذَا ٱلْأَمْرِ! ٧ 7
They said to him, “Why does my master speak such words as these? Far be it from your servants that they would do such a thing.
هُوَذَا ٱلْفِضَّةُ ٱلَّتِي وَجَدْنَا فِي أَفْوَاهِ عِدَالِنَا رَدَدْنَاهَا إِلَيْكَ مِنْ أَرْضِ كَنْعَانَ. فَكَيْفَ نَسْرِقُ مِنْ بَيْتِ سَيِّدِكَ فِضَّةً أَوْ ذَهَبًا؟ ٨ 8
Look, the money that we found in our sacks' openings, we brought again to you out of the land of Canaan. How then could we steal out of your master's house silver or gold?
ٱلَّذِي يُوجَدُ مَعَهُ مِنْ عَبِيدِكَ يَمُوتُ، وَنَحْنُ أَيْضًا نَكُونُ عَبِيدًا لِسَيِّدِي». ٩ 9
With whomever of your servants it is found, let him die, and we also will be my master's slaves.”
فَقَالَ: «نَعَمِ، ٱلْآنَ بِحَسَبِ كَلَامِكُمْ هَكَذَا يَكُونُ. ٱلَّذِي يُوجَدُ مَعَهُ يَكُونُ لِي عَبْدًا، وَأَمَّا أَنْتُمْ فَتَكُونُونَ أَبْرِيَاءَ». ١٠ 10
The steward said, “Now also let it be according to your words. He with whom the cup is found will be my slave, and you others will be innocent.”
فَٱسْتَعْجَلُوا وَأَنْزَلُوا كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ عِدْلَهُ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَفَتَحُوا كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ عِدْلَهُ. ١١ 11
Then each man hurried and brought his sack down to the ground, and each man opened his sack.
فَفَتَّشَ مُبْتَدِئًا مِنَ ٱلْكَبِيرِ حَتَّى ٱنْتَهَى إِلَى ٱلصَّغِيرِ، فَوُجِدَ ٱلطَّاسُ فِي عِدْلِ بَنْيَامِينَ. ١٢ 12
The steward searched. He began with the oldest and finished with the youngest, and the cup was found in Benjamin's sack.
فَمَزَّقُوا ثِيَابَهُمْ وَحَمَّلَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ عَلَى حِمَارِهِ وَرَجَعُوا إِلَى ٱلْمَدِينَةِ. ١٣ 13
Then they tore their clothes. Each man loaded his donkey and returned to the city.
فَدَخَلَ يَهُوذَا وَإِخْوَتُهُ إِلَى بَيْتِ يُوسُفَ وَهُوَ بَعْدُ هُنَاكَ، وَوَقَعُوا أَمَامَهُ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٤ 14
Judah and his brothers came to Joseph's house. He was still there, and they bowed before him to the ground.
فَقَالَ لَهُمْ يُوسُفُ: «مَا هَذَا ٱلْفِعْلُ ٱلَّذِي فَعَلْتُمْ؟ أَلَمْ تَعْلَمُوا أَنَّ رَجُلًا مِثْلِي يَتَفَاءَلُ؟» ١٥ 15
Joseph said to them, “What is this that you have done? Do you not know that a man like me practices divination?”
فَقَالَ يَهُوذَا: «مَاذَا نَقُولُ لِسَيِّدِي؟ مَاذَا نَتَكَلَّمُ؟ وَبِمَاذَا نَتَبَرَّرُ؟ ٱللهُ قَدْ وَجَدَ إِثْمَ عَبِيدِكَ. هَا نَحْنُ عَبِيدٌ لِسَيِّدِي، نَحْنُ وَٱلَّذِي وُجِدَ ٱلطَّاسُ فِي يَدِهِ جَمِيعًا». ١٦ 16
Judah said, “What can we say to my master? What can we speak? Or how can we justify ourselves? God has found out the iniquity of your servants. Look, we are my master's slaves, both we and he also in whose hand the cup was found.”
فَقَالَ: «حَاشَا لِي أَنْ أَفْعَلَ هَذَا! ٱلرَّجُلُ ٱلَّذِي وُجِدَ ٱلطَّاسُ فِي يَدِهِ هُوَ يَكُونُ لِي عَبْدًا، وَأَمَّا أَنْتُمْ فَٱصْعَدُوا بِسَلَامٍ إِلَى أَبِيكُمْ». ١٧ 17
Joseph said, “Far be it from me that I should do so. The man in whose hand the cup was found, that person will be my slave, but as for you others, go up in peace to your father.”
ثُمَّ تَقَدَّمَ إِلَيْهِ يَهُوذَا وَقَالَ: «ٱسْتَمِعْ يَا سَيِّدِي. لِيَتَكَلَّمْ عَبْدُكَ كَلِمَةً فِي أُذُنَيْ سَيِّدِي وَلَا يَحْمَ غَضَبُكَ عَلَى عَبْدِكَ، لِأَنَّكَ مِثْلُ فِرْعَوْنَ. ١٨ 18
Then Judah came near to him and said, “My master, please let your servant speak a word in my master's ears, and do let your anger burn against your servant, for you are just like Pharaoh.
سَيِّدِي سَأَلَ عَبِيدَهُ قَائِلًا: هَلْ لَكُمْ أَبٌ أَوْ أَخٌ؟ ١٩ 19
My master asked his servants, saying, 'Do you have a father or a brother?'
فَقُلْنَا لِسَيِّدِي: لَنَا أَبٌ شَيْخٌ، وَٱبْنُ شَيْخُوخَةٍ صَغِيرٌ، مَاتَ أَخُوهُ وَبَقِيَ هُوَ وَحْدَهُ لِأُمِّهِ، وَأَبُوهُ يُحِبُّهُ. ٢٠ 20
We said to my master, 'We have a father, an old man, and a child of his old age, a little one. But his brother is dead, and he alone is left of his mother, and his father loves him.'
فَقُلْتَ لِعَبِيدِكَ: ٱنْزِلُوا بِهِ إِلَيَّ فَأَجْعَلَ نَظَرِي عَلَيْهِ. ٢١ 21
Then you said to your servants, 'Bring him down to me that I may see him.'
فَقُلْنَا لِسَيِّدِي: لَا يَقْدِرُ ٱلْغُلَامُ أَنْ يَتْرُكَ أَبَاهُ، وَإِنْ تَرَكَ أَبَاهُ يَمُوتُ. ٢٢ 22
After that, we said to my master, 'The boy cannot leave his father. For if he should leave his father his father would die.'
فَقُلْتَ لِعَبِيدِكَ: إِنْ لَمْ يَنْزِلْ أَخُوكُمُ ٱلصَّغِيرُ مَعَكُمْ لَا تَعُودُوا تَنْظُرُونَ وَجْهِي. ٢٣ 23
Then you said to your servants, 'Unless your youngest brother comes down with you, you will not see my face again.'
فَكَانَ لَمَّا صَعِدْنَا إِلَى عَبْدِكَ أَبِي أَنَّنَا أَخْبَرْنَاهُ بِكَلَامِ سَيِّدِي. ٢٤ 24
Then it came about when we went up to your servant my father, we told him the words of my master.
ثُمَّ قَالَ أَبُونَا: ٱرْجِعُوا ٱشْتَرُوا لَنَا قَلِيلًا مِنَ ٱلطَّعَامِ. ٢٥ 25
Our father said, 'Go again, buy us some food.'
فَقُلْنَا: لَا نَقْدِرُ أَنْ نَنْزِلَ، وَإِنَّمَا إِذَا كَانَ أَخُونَا ٱلصَّغِيرُ مَعَنَا نَنْزِلُ، لِأَنَّنَا لَا نَقْدِرُ أَنْ نَنْظُرَ وَجْهَ ٱلرَّجُلِ وَأَخُونَا ٱلصَّغِيرُ لَيْسَ مَعَنَا. ٢٦ 26
Then we said, 'We cannot go down. If our youngest brother is with us, then will we go down, for we will not be able to see the man's face unless our youngest brother is with us.'
فَقَالَ لَنَا عَبْدُكَ أَبِي: أَنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ أَنَّ ٱمْرَأَتِي وَلَدَتْ لِي ٱثْنَيْنِ، ٢٧ 27
Your servant my father said to us, 'You know that my wife bore me two sons.
فَخَرَجَ ٱلْوَاحِدُ مِنْ عِنْدِي، وَقُلْتُ: إِنَّمَا هُوَ قَدِ ٱفْتُرِسَ ٱفْتِرَاسًا، وَلَمْ أَنْظُرْهُ إِلَى ٱلْآنَ. ٢٨ 28
One of them went out from me and I said, “Surely he is torn in pieces, and I have not seen him since.”
فَإِذَا أَخَذْتُمْ هَذَا أَيْضًا مِنْ أَمَامِ وَجْهِي وَأَصَابَتْهُ أَذِيَّةٌ، تُنْزِلُونَ شَيْبَتِي بِشَرٍّ إِلَى ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ. (Sheol h7585) ٢٩ 29
Now if you also take this one from me, and harm comes to him, you will bring down my gray hair with sorrow to Sheol.' (Sheol h7585)
فَٱلْآنَ مَتَى جِئْتُ إِلَى عَبْدِكَ أَبِي، وَٱلْغُلَامُ لَيْسَ مَعَنَا، وَنَفْسُهُ مُرْتَبِطَةٌ بِنَفْسِهِ، ٣٠ 30
Now, therefore, when I come to your servant my father, and the lad is not with us, since his life is bound up in the boy's life,
يَكُونُ مَتَى رَأَى أَنَّ ٱلْغُلَامَ مَفْقُودٌ، أَنَّهُ يَمُوتُ، فَيُنْزِلُ عَبِيدُكَ شَيْبَةَ عَبْدِكَ أَبِينَا بِحُزْنٍ إِلَى ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ، (Sheol h7585) ٣١ 31
it will come about, when he sees the boy is not with us, he will die. Your servants will bring down the gray hair of your servant our father with sorrow to Sheol. (Sheol h7585)
لِأَنَّ عَبْدَكَ ضَمِنَ ٱلْغُلَامَ لِأَبِي قَائِلًا: إِنْ لَمْ أَجِئْ بِهِ إِلَيْكَ أَصِرْ مُذْنِبًا إِلَى أَبِي كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ. ٣٢ 32
For your servant became a guarantee for the boy to my father and said, 'If I do not bring him to you, then I will bear the guilt to my father forever.'
فَٱلْآنَ لِيَمْكُثْ عَبْدُكَ عِوَضًا عَنِ ٱلْغُلَامِ، عَبْدًا لِسَيِّدِي، وَيَصْعَدِ ٱلْغُلَامُ مَعَ إِخْوَتِهِ. ٣٣ 33
Now therefore, please let your servant stay instead of the boy as slave to my master, and let the boy go up with his brothers.
لِأَنِّي كَيْفَ أَصْعَدُ إِلَى أَبِي وَٱلْغُلَامُ لَيْسَ مَعِي؟ لِئَلَّا أَنْظُرَ ٱلشَّرَّ ٱلَّذِي يُصِيبُ أَبِي». ٣٤ 34
For how can I go up to my father if the boy is not with me? I am afraid to see the evil that would come on my father.”
