اَلتَّكْوِينُ 9

وَبَارَكَ ٱللهُ نُوحًا وَبَنِيهِ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «أَثْمِرُوا وَٱكْثُرُوا وَٱمْلَأُوا ٱلْأَرْضَ. ١ 1
Then God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth.
وَلْتَكُنْ خَشْيَتُكُمْ وَرَهْبَتُكُمْ عَلَى كُلِّ حَيَوَانَاتِ ٱلْأَرْضِ وَكُلِّ طُيُورِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ، مَعَ كُلِّ مَا يَدِبُّ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَكُلِّ أَسْمَاكِ ٱلْبَحْرِ. قَدْ دُفِعَتْ إِلَى أَيْدِيكُمْ. ٢ 2
The fear of you and the dread of you will be upon every living animal on the earth, upon every bird of the sky, upon everything that goes low on the ground, and upon all the fish of the sea. They are given into your hand.
كُلُّ دَابَّةٍ حَيَّةٍ تَكُونُ لَكُمْ طَعَامًا. كَٱلْعُشْبِ ٱلْأَخْضَرِ دَفَعْتُ إِلَيْكُمُ ٱلْجَمِيعَ. ٣ 3
Every moving thing that lives will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.
غَيْرَ أَنَّ لَحْمًا بِحَيَاتِهِ، دَمِهِ، لَا تَأْكُلُوهُ. ٤ 4
But you must not eat meat with its life—that is its blood—in it.
وَأَطْلُبُ أَنَا دَمَكُمْ لِأَنْفُسِكُمْ فَقَطْ. مِنْ يَدِ كُلِّ حَيَوَانٍ أَطْلُبُهُ. وَمِنْ يَدِ ٱلْإِنْسَانِ أَطْلُبُ نَفْسَ ٱلْإِنْسَانِ، مِنْ يَدِ ٱلْإِنْسَانِ أَخِيهِ. ٥ 5
But for your blood, the life that is in your blood, I will require payment. From the hand of every animal I will require it. From the hand of any man, that is, from the hand of one who has murdered his brother, I will require an accounting for the life of that man.
سَافِكُ دَمِ ٱلْإِنْسَانِ بِٱلْإِنْسَانِ يُسْفَكُ دَمُهُ. لِأَنَّ ٱللهَ عَلَى صُورَتِهِ عَمِلَ ٱلْإِنْسَانَ. ٦ 6
Whoever sheds man's blood, by man will his blood be shed, for it was in the image of God that he made man.
فَأَثْمِرُوا أَنْتُمْ وَٱكْثُرُوا وَتَوَالَدُوا فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ وَتَكَاثَرُوا فِيهَا». ٧ 7
As for you, be fruitful and multiply, spread throughout the earth and multiply on it.”
وَكَلَّمَ ٱللهُ نُوحًا وَبَنِيهِ مَعهُ قَائِلًا: ٨ 8
Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying,
«وَهَا أَنَا مُقِيمٌ مِيثَاقِي مَعَكُمْ وَمَعَ نَسْلِكُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِكُمْ، ٩ 9
“As for me, listen! I am going to confirm my covenant with you and with your descendants after you,
وَمَعَ كُلِّ ذَوَاتِ ٱلْأَنْفُسِ ٱلْحَيَّةِ ٱلَّتِي مَعَكُمْ: ٱلطُّيُورِ وَٱلْبَهَائِمِ وَكُلِّ وُحُوشِ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي مَعَكُمْ، مِنْ جَمِيعِ ٱلْخَارِجِينَ مِنَ ٱلْفُلْكِ حَتَّى كُلُّ حَيَوَانِ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٠ 10
and with every living creature that is with you, with the birds, the livestock, and every creature of the earth with you, from all that came out of the ark, to every living creature on the earth.
أُقِيمُ مِيثَاقِي مَعَكُمْ فَلَا يَنْقَرِضُ كُلُّ ذِي جَسَدٍ أَيْضًا بِمِيَاهِ ٱلطُّوفَانِ. وَلَا يَكُونُ أَيْضًا طُوفَانٌ لِيُخْرِبَ ٱلْأَرْضَ». ١١ 11
I hereby confirm my covenant with you, that never again will all flesh be destroyed by the waters of a flood. Never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.”
وَقَالَ ٱللهُ: «هَذِهِ عَلَامَةُ ٱلْمِيثَاقِ ٱلَّذِي أَنَا وَاضِعُهُ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَكُمْ، وَبَيْنَ كُلِّ ذَوَاتِ ٱلْأَنْفُسِ ٱلْحَيَّةِ ٱلَّتِي مَعَكُمْ إِلَى أَجْيَالِ ٱلدَّهْرِ: ١٢ 12
God said, “This is the sign of the covenant which I am making between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations:
وَضَعْتُ قَوْسِي فِي ٱلسَّحَابِ فَتَكُونُ عَلَامَةَ مِيثَاقٍ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٣ 13
I have set my rainbow in the cloud, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
فَيَكُونُ مَتَى أَنْشُرْ سَحَابًا عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَتَظْهَرِ ٱلْقَوْسُ فِي ٱلسَّحَابِ، ١٤ 14
It will come about when I bring a cloud over the earth and the rainbow is seen in the cloud,
أَنِّي أَذْكُرُ مِيثَاقِي ٱلَّذِي بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَكُمْ وَبَيْنَ كُلِّ نَفْسٍ حَيَّةٍ فِي كُلِّ جَسَدٍ. فَلَا تَكُونُ أَيْضًا ٱلْمِيَاهُ طُوفَانًا لِتُهْلِكَ كُلَّ ذِي جَسَدٍ. ١٥ 15
then I will call to mind my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh. The waters will never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.
فَمَتَى كَانَتِ ٱلْقَوْسُ فِي ٱلسَّحَابِ، أُبْصِرُهَا لِأَذْكُرَ مِيثَاقًا أَبَدِيًّا بَيْنَ ٱللهِ وَبَيْنَ كُلِّ نَفْسٍ حَيَّةٍ فِي كُلِّ جَسَدٍ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ». ١٦ 16
The rainbow will be in the clouds and I will see it, in order to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.”
وَقَالَ ٱللهُ لِنُوحٍ: «هَذِهِ عَلَامَةُ ٱلْمِيثَاقِ ٱلَّذِي أَنَا أَقَمْتُهُ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَ كُلِّ ذِي جَسَدٍ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ». ١٧ 17
Then God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant that I have confirmed between me and all flesh that is on the earth.”
وَكَانَ بَنُو نُوحٍ ٱلَّذِينَ خَرَجُوا مِنَ ٱلْفُلْكِ سَامًا وَحَامًا وَيَافَثَ. وَحَامٌ هُوَ أَبُو كَنْعَانَ. ١٨ 18
The sons of Noah that came out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Ham was the father of Canaan.
هَؤُلَاءِ ٱلثَّلَاثَةُ هُمْ بَنُو نُوحٍ. وَمِنْ هَؤُلَاءِ تَشَعَّبَتْ كُلُّ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٩ 19
These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the whole earth was populated.
وَٱبْتَدَأَ نُوحٌ يَكُونُ فَلَّاحًا وَغَرَسَ كَرْمًا. ٢٠ 20
Noah began to be a farmer, and he planted a vineyard.
وَشَرِبَ مِنَ ٱلْخَمْرِ فَسَكِرَ وَتَعَرَّى دَاخِلَ خِبَائِهِ. ٢١ 21
He drank some of the wine and became drunk. He was lying uncovered in his tent.
فَأَبْصَرَ حَامٌ أَبُو كَنْعَانَ عَوْرَةَ أَبِيهِ، وَأَخْبَرَ أَخَوَيْهِ خَارِجًا. ٢٢ 22
Then Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father and told his two brothers outside.
فَأَخَذَ سَامٌ وَيَافَثُ ٱلرِّدَاءَ وَوَضَعَاهُ عَلَى أَكْتَافِهِمَا وَمَشَيَا إِلَى ٱلْوَرَاءِ، وَسَتَرَا عَوْرَةَ أَبِيهِمَا وَوَجْهَاهُمَا إِلَى ٱلْوَرَاءِ. فَلَمْ يُبْصِرَا عَوْرَةَ أَبِيهِمَا. ٢٣ 23
So Shem and Japheth took a robe and laid it upon both their shoulders, and walked backwards and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned the other way, so they did not see their father's nakedness.
فَلَمَّا ٱسْتَيْقَظَ نُوحٌ مِنْ خَمْرِهِ، عَلِمَ مَا فَعَلَ بِهِ ٱبْنُهُ ٱلصَّغِيرُ، ٢٤ 24
When Noah awoke from his wine, he learned what his youngest son had done to him.
فَقَالَ: «مَلْعُونٌ كَنْعَانُ! عَبْدَ ٱلْعَبِيدِ يَكُونُ لإِخْوَتِهِ». ٢٥ 25
So he said, “Cursed be Canaan. May he be a servant to his brothers' servants.”
وَقَالَ: «مُبَارَكٌ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ سَامٍ. وَلْيَكُنْ كَنْعَانُ عَبْدًا لَهُمْ. ٢٦ 26
He also said, “May Yahweh, the God of Shem, be blessed, and may Canaan be his servant.
لِيَفْتَحِ ٱللهُ لِيَافَثَ فَيَسْكُنَ فِي مَسَاكِنِ سَامٍ، وَلْيَكُنْ كَنْعَانُ عَبْدًا لَهُمْ». ٢٧ 27
May God extend the territory of Japheth, and let him make his home in the tents of Shem. May Canaan be his servant.”
وَعَاشَ نُوحٌ بَعْدَ ٱلطُّوفَانِ ثَلَاثَ مِئَةٍ وَخَمْسِينَ سَنَةً. ٢٨ 28
After the flood, Noah lived three hundred fifty years.
فَكَانَتْ كُلُّ أَيَّامِ نُوحٍ تِسْعَ مِئَةٍ وَخَمْسِينَ سَنَةً، وَمَاتَ. ٢٩ 29
All the days of Noah were nine hundred fifty years, and then he died.
