تكوين 49

وَدَعَا يَعْقُوبُ بَنِيهِ وَقَالَ: «ٱجْتَمِعُوا لِأُنْبِئَكُمْ بِمَا يُصِيبُكُمْ فِي آخِرِ ٱلْأَيَّامِ. ١ 1
Then Jacob summoned his sons, and said: "Gather yourselves together so that I may tell you what will happen to you in the days to come.
ٱجْتَمِعُوا وَٱسْمَعُوا يَا بَنِي يَعْقُوبَ، وَٱصْغَوْا إِلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ أَبِيكُمْ: ٢ 2
Assemble yourselves and hear, you sons of Jacob. Listen to Israel, your father.
رَأُوبَيْنُ، أَنْتَ بِكْرِي، قُوَّتِي وَأَوَّلُ قُدْرَتِي، فَضْلُ ٱلرِّفْعَةِ وَفَضْلُ ٱلْعِزِّ. ٣ 3
Reuben, you are my firstborn, my strength, and the the firstfruits of my virility, preeminent in dignity and preeminent in power.
فَائِرًا كَٱلْمَاءِ لَا تَتَفَضَّلُ، لِأَنَّكَ صَعِدْتَ عَلَى مَضْجَعِ أَبِيكَ. حِينَئِذٍ دَنَّسْتَهُ. عَلَى فِرَاشِي صَعِدَ. ٤ 4
Uncontrolled as the waters, you will not have excel, because you went up to your father's bed, you went up and defiled my couch.
شِمْعُونُ وَلَاوِي أَخَوَانِ، آلَاتُ ظُلْمٍ سُيُوفُهُمَا. ٥ 5
Simeon and Levi are brothers. Their swords are weapons of violence.
فِي مَجْلِسِهِمَا لَا تَدْخُلُ نَفْسِي. بِمَجْمَعِهِمَا لَا تَتَّحِدُ كَرَامَتِي. لِأَنَّهُمَا فِي غَضَبِهِمَا قَتَلَا إِنْسَانًا، وَفِي رِضَاهُمَا عَرْقَبَا ثَوْرًا. ٦ 6
May I never enter their council. May my honor never be joined with their assembly. For in their anger they killed men, and for pleasure they hamstrung oxen.
مَلْعُونٌ غَضَبُهُمَا فَإِنَّهُ شَدِيدٌ، وَسَخَطُهُمَا فَإِنَّهُ قَاسٍ. أُقَسِّمُهُمَا فِي يَعْقُوبَ، وَأُفَرِّقُهُمَا فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٧ 7
Cursed be their anger, for it has been fierce, and their fury, for it was cruel. I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.
يَهُوذَا، إِيَّاكَ يَحْمَدُ إِخْوَتُكَ، يَدُكَ عَلَى قَفَا أَعْدَائِكَ، يَسْجُدُ لَكَ بَنُو أَبِيكَ. ٨ 8
Judah, your brothers will praise you. Your hand will be on the neck of your enemies. Your father's sons will bow down before you.
يَهُوذَا جَرْوُ أَسَدٍ، مِنْ فَرِيسَةٍ صَعِدْتَ يَا ٱبْنِي، جَثَا وَرَبَضَ كَأَسَدٍ وَكَلَبْوَةٍ. مَنْ يُنْهِضُهُ؟ ٩ 9
Judah is a lion's cub. From the prey, my son, you rise up. Like a lion he crouches and lies down, as a lioness. Who will rouse him up?
لَا يَزُولُ قَضِيبٌ مِنْ يَهُوذَا وَمُشْتَرِعٌ مِنْ بَيْنِ رِجْلَيْهِ حَتَّى يَأْتِيَ شِيلُونُ وَلَهُ يَكُونُ خُضُوعُ شُعُوبٍ. ١٠ 10
The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until Shiloh comes. And it is he whom the peoples will obey.
رَابِطًا بِٱلْكَرْمَةِ جَحْشَهُ، وَبِالْجَفْنَةِ ٱبْنَ أَتَانِهِ، غَسَلَ بِٱلْخَمْرِ لِبَاسَهُ، وَبِدَمِ ٱلْعِنَبِ ثَوْبَهُ. ١١ 11
Binding his foal to the vine, and his donkey's colt to the choice vine. He will wash his garments in wine, and his robes in the blood of grapes.
مُسْوَدُّ ٱلْعَيْنَيْنِ مِنَ ٱلْخَمْرِ، وَمُبْيَضُّ ٱلْأَسْنَانِ مِنَ ٱللَّبَنِ. ١٢ 12
His eyes will be darker than wine, and his teeth whiter than milk.
زَبُولُونُ، عِنْدَ سَاحِلِ ٱلْبَحْرِ يَسْكُنُ، وَهُوَ عِنْدَ سَاحِلِ ٱلسُّفُنِ، وَجَانِبُهُ عِنْدَ صَيْدُونَ. ١٣ 13
Zebulun will dwell at the seashore, and he will be a harbor for ships, and his border will be at Sidon.
يَسَّاكَرُ، حِمَارٌ جَسِيمٌ رَابِضٌ بَيْنَ ٱلْحَظَائِرِ. ١٤ 14
Issachar is a strong donkey lying down between the saddlebags.
فَرَأَى ٱلْمَحَلَّ أَنَّهُ حَسَنٌ، وَٱلْأَرْضَ أَنَّهَا نَزِهَةٌ، فَأَحْنَى كَتِفَهُ لِلْحِمْلِ وَصَارَ لِلْجِزْيَةِ عَبْدًا. ١٥ 15
When he sees a good resting place, that the land is pleasant, he will bend his back to the burden, and become a slave doing forced labor.
دَانُ، يَدِينُ شَعْبَهُ كَأَحَدِ أَسْبَاطِ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ١٦ 16
Dan will judge his people as one of the tribes of Israel.
يَكُونُ دَانُ حَيَّةً عَلَى ٱلطَّرِيقِ، أُفْعُوانًا عَلَى ٱلسَّبِيلِ، يَلْسَعُ عَقِبَيِ ٱلْفَرَسِ فَيَسْقُطُ رَاكِبُهُ إِلَى ٱلْوَرَاءِ. ١٧ 17
Dan will be a serpent on the road, a viper by the path, that bites the horse's heels so that his rider falls backward.
لِخَلَاصِكَ ٱنْتَظَرْتُ يَا رَبُّ. ١٨ 18
I wait for your salvation, YHWH.
جَادُ، يَزْحَمُهُ جَيْشٌ، وَلَكِنَّهُ يَزْحَمُ مُؤَخَّرَهُ. ١٩ 19
Gad will be attacked by raiders, but he will raid at their heels.
أَشِيرُ، خُبْزُهُ سَمِينٌ وَهُوَ يُعْطِي لَذَّاتِ مُلُوكٍ. ٢٠ 20
Asher's food will be rich, and he will provide royal delicacies.
نَفْتَالِي، أَيِّلَةٌ مُسَيَّبَةٌ يُعْطِي أَقْوَالًا حَسَنَةً. ٢١ 21
Naphtali is a doe set free that bears beautiful fawns.
يُوسُفُ، غُصْنُ شَجَرَةٍ مُثْمِرَةٍ، غُصْنُ شَجَرَةٍ مُثْمِرَةٍ عَلَى عَيْنٍ. أَغْصَانٌ قَدِ ٱرْتَفَعَتْ فَوْقَ حَائِطٍ. ٢٢ 22
Joseph is a fruitful son, a fruitful son by a spring. His branches run over a wall.
فَمَرَّرَتْهُ وَرَمَتْهُ وَٱضْطَهَدَتْهُ أَرْبَابُ ٱلسِّهَامِ. ٢٣ 23
The archers will attack him with bitterness, and shoot at him, and harass him.
وَلَكِنْ ثَبَتَتْ بِمَتَانَةٍ قَوْسُهُ، وَتَشَدَّدَتْ سَوَاعِدُ يَدَيْهِ. مِنْ يَدَيْ عَزِيزِ يَعْقُوبَ، مِنْ هُنَاكَ، مِنَ ٱلرَّاعِي صَخْرِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، ٢٤ 24
Yet his bow will remain steady, and his arms will be made agile by the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob, by the name of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel,
مِنْ إِلَهِ أَبِيكَ ٱلَّذِي يُعِينُكَ، وَمِنَ ٱلْقَادِرِ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ ٱلَّذِي يُبَارِكُكَ، تَأْتِي بَرَكَاتُ ٱلسَّمَاءِ مِنْ فَوْقُ، وَبَرَكَاتُ ٱلْغَمْرِ ٱلرَّابِضِ تَحْتُ. بَرَكَاتُ ٱلثَّدْيَيْنِ وَٱلرَّحِمِ. ٢٥ 25
by the God of your father, who will help you, and El Shaddai, who will bless you with blessings of the sky above, blessings of the deep that lies below, and blessings of the breasts and of the womb.
بَرَكَاتُ أَبِيكَ فَاقَتْ عَلَى بَرَكَاتِ أَبَوَيَّ. إِلَى مُنْيَةِ ٱلْآكَامِ ٱلدَّهْرِيَّةِ تَكُونُ عَلَى رَأْسِ يُوسُفَ، وَعَلَى قِمَّةِ نَذِيرِ إِخْوَتِهِ. ٢٦ 26
The blessings of your father are greater than the blessings of the ancient mountains, and the bounty of the everlasting hills. They will be on the head of Joseph, and on the brow of the prince among his brothers.
بَنْيَامِينُ ذِئْبٌ يَفْتَرِسُ. فِي ٱلصَّبَاحِ يَأْكُلُ غَنِيمَةً، وَعِنْدَ ٱلْمَسَاءِ يُقَسِّمُ نَهْبًا». ٢٧ 27
Benjamin is a ravenous wolf. In the morning he will devour the prey, and at evening he will divide the plunder."
جَمِيعُ هَؤُلَاءِ هُمْ أَسْبَاطُ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلِٱثْنَا عَشَرَ. وَهَذَا مَا كَلَّمَهُمْ بِهِ أَبُوهُمْ وَبَارَكَهُمْ. كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ بِحَسَبِ بَرَكَتِهِ بَارَكَهُمْ. ٢٨ 28
All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is what their father said to them when he blessed them. He blessed each one with his own individual blessing.
وَأَوْصَاهُمْ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «أَنَا أَنْضَمُّ إِلَى قَوْمِي. اِدْفِنُونِي عِنْدَ آبَائِي فِي ٱلْمَغَارَةِ ٱلَّتِي فِي حَقْلِ عِفْرُونَ ٱلْحِثِّيِّ. ٢٩ 29
Then he instructed them, and said to them, "I am to be gathered to my people. Bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hethite,
فِي ٱلْمَغَارَةِ ٱلَّتِي فِي حَقْلِ ٱلْمَكْفِيلَةِ، ٱلَّتِي أَمَامَ مَمْرَا فِي أَرْضِ كَنْعَانَ، ٱلَّتِي ٱشْتَرَاهَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ مَعَ ٱلْحَقْلِ مِنْ عِفْرُونَ ٱلْحِثِّيِّ مُلْكَ قَبْرٍ. ٣٠ 30
in the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is near Mamre in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought along with the field from Ephron the Hethite as a burial place.
هُنَاكَ دَفَنُوا إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَسَارَةَ ٱمْرَأَتَهُ. هُنَاكَ دَفَنُوا إِسْحَاقَ وَرِفْقَةَ ٱمْرَأَتَهُ، وَهُنَاكَ دَفَنْتُ لَيْئَةَ. ٣١ 31
There they buried Abraham and his wife Sarah. There they buried Isaac and his wife Rebekah, and there I buried Leah.
شِرَاءُ ٱلْحَقْلِ وَٱلْمَغَارَةِ ٱلَّتِي فِيهِ كَانَ مِنْ بَنِي حِثَّ». ٣٢ 32
The field and the cave that is in it were purchased from the sons of Heth."
وَلَمَّا فَرَغَ يَعْقُوبُ مِنْ تَوْصِيَةِ بَنِيهِ ضَمَّ رِجْلَيْهِ إِلَى ٱلسَّرِيرِ، وَأَسْلَمَ ٱلرُّوحَ وَٱنْضَمَّ إِلَى قَوْمِهِ. ٣٣ 33
When Jacob finished instructing his sons, he drew his legs up into the bed and breathed his last, and was gathered to his people.
