حَجَّي 1

فِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلثَّانِيَةِ لِدَارِيُوسَ ٱلْمَلِكِ، فِي ٱلشَّهْرِ ٱلسَّادِسِ فِي أَوَّلِ يَوْمٍ مِنَ ٱلشَّهْرِ، كَانَتْ كَلِمَةُ ٱلرَّبِّ عَنْ يَدِ حَجَّي ٱلنَّبِيِّ إِلَى زَرُبَّابِلَ بْنِ شَأَلْتِيئِيلَ وَالِي يَهُوذَا، وَإِلَى يَهُوشَعَ بْنِ يَهُوصَادِقَ ٱلْكَاهِنِ ٱلْعَظِيمِ قَائِلًا: ١ 1
In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, on the first day of the month, the word of Yahweh came by the hand of Haggai the prophet to the governor of Judah, Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, and to the high priest Joshua son of Jehozadak, saying,
«هَكَذَا قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ قَائِلًا: هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبُ قَالَ إِنَّ ٱلْوَقْتَ لَمْ يَبْلُغْ وَقْتَ بِنَاءِ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ». ٢ 2
“Yahweh of hosts says this: These people say, 'It is not time for us to come or to build Yahweh's house.'”
فَكَانَتْ كَلِمَةُ ٱلرَّبِّ عَنْ يَدِ حَجَّي ٱلنَّبِيِّ قَائِلًا: ٣ 3
Then the word of Yahweh came by the hand of Haggai the prophet, saying,
«هَلِ ٱلْوَقْتُ لَكُمْ أَنْتُمْ أَنْ تَسْكُنُوا فِي بُيُوتِكُمُ ٱلْمُغَشَّاةِ، وَهَذَا ٱلْبَيْتُ خَرَابٌ؟ ٤ 4
“Is it a time for you yourselves to live in your finished houses, while this house lies ruined?
وَٱلْآنَ فَهَكَذَا قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ: ٱجْعَلُوا قَلْبَكُمْ عَلَى طُرُقِكُمْ. ٥ 5
So now Yahweh of hosts says this: Consider your ways!
زَرَعْتُمْ كَثِيرًا وَدَخَّلْتُمْ قَلِيلًا. تَأْكُلُونَ وَلَيْسَ إِلَى ٱلشَّبَعِ. تَشْرَبُونَ وَلَا تَرْوُونَ. تَكْتَسُونَ وَلَا تَدْفَأُونَ. وَٱلْآخِذُ أُجْرَةً يَأْخُذُ أُجْرَةً لِكِيسٍ مَنْقُوبٍ. ٦ 6
You have sown much seed, but bring in little harvest; you eat but do not have enough; you drink but cannot get drunk. You wear clothes but cannot warm yourselves, and the wage earner earns money only to put it into a bag full of holes!
«هَكَذَا قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ: ٱجْعَلُوا قَلْبَكُمْ عَلَى طُرُقِكُمْ. ٧ 7
Yahweh of hosts says this: “Consider your ways!
اِصْعَدُوا إِلَى ٱلْجَبَلِ وَأْتُوا بِخَشَبٍ وَٱبْنُوا ٱلْبَيْتَ، فَأَرْضَى عَلَيْهِ وَأَتَمَجَّدَ، قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٨ 8
Go up to the mountain, bring timber, and build my house; then I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified!—says Yahweh.”
ٱنْتَظَرْتُمْ كَثِيرًا وَإِذَا هُوَ قَلِيلٌ. وَلَمَّا أَدْخَلْتُمُوهُ ٱلْبَيْتَ نَفَخْتُ عَلَيْهِ. لِمَاذَا؟ يَقُولُ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ. لِأَجْلِ بَيْتِي ٱلَّذِي هُوَ خَرَابٌ، وَأَنْتُمْ رَاكِضُونَ كُلُّ إِنْسَانٍ إِلَى بَيْتِهِ. ٩ 9
“You looked for much, but behold! you have brought little home, for I blew it away! Why?” declares Yahweh of hosts. “Because my house lies in ruins, while every one of you is working on his own house.
لِذَلِكَ مَنَعَتِ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتُ مِنْ فَوْقِكُمُ ٱلنَّدَى، وَمَنَعَتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ غَلَّتَهَا. ١٠ 10
Because of this the heavens withhold the dew from you, and the earth withholds its produce.
وَدَعَوْتُ بِٱلْحَرِّ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَعَلَى ٱلْجِبَالِ وَعَلَى ٱلْحِنْطَةِ وَعَلَى ٱلْمِسْطَارِ وَعَلَى ٱلزَّيْتِ وَعَلَى مَا تُنْبِتُهُ ٱلْأَرْضُ، وَعَلَى ٱلنَّاسِ وَعَلَى ٱلْبَهَائِمِ، وَعَلَى كُلِّ أَتْعَابِ ٱلْيَدَيْنِ». ١١ 11
I have summoned a drought upon the land and upon the mountains, upon the grain and upon the new wine, upon the oil and upon the harvest of the earth, upon men and upon beasts, and upon all the labor of your hands!”
حِينَئِذٍ سَمِعَ زَرُبَّابِلُ بْنُ شَأَلْتِيئِيلَ وَيَهُوشَعُ بْنُ يَهُوصَادِقَ ٱلْكَاهِنِ ٱلْعَظِيمِ، وَكُلُّ بَقِيَّةِ ٱلشَّعْبِ صَوْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِهِمْ وَكَلَامَ حَجَّي ٱلنَّبِيِّ كَمَا أَرْسَلَهُ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُهُمْ. وَخَافَ ٱلشَّعْبُ أَمَامَ وَجْهِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ١٢ 12
Then Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, and the high priest Joshua son of Jehozadak, along with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of Yahweh their God and the words of Haggai the prophet, because Yahweh their God had sent him and the people feared the face of Yahweh.
فَقَالَ حَجَّي رَسُولُ ٱلرَّبِّ بِرِسَالَةِ ٱلرَّبِّ لِجَمِيعِ ٱلشَّعْبِ قَائِلًا: «أَنَا مَعَكُمْ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ». ١٣ 13
Then Haggai, the messenger of Yahweh, spoke Yahweh's message to the people and said, “I am with you!—this is Yahweh's declaration!”
وَنَبَّهَ ٱلرَّبُّ رُوحَ زَرُبَّابِلَ بْنِ شَأَلْتِيئِيلَ وَالِي يَهُوذَا، وَرُوحَ يَهُوشَعَ بْنِ يَهُوصَادِقَ ٱلْكَاهِنِ ٱلْعَظِيمِ، وَرُوحَ كُلِّ بَقِيَّةِ ٱلشَّعْبِ. فَجَاءُوا وَعَمِلُوا ٱلشُّغْلَ فِي بَيْتِ رَبِّ ٱلْجُنُودِ إِلَهِهِمْ، ١٤ 14
So Yahweh stirred up the spirit of the governor of Judah, Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, and the spirit of the high priest Joshua son of Jehozadak, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people, so that they went and worked on the house of Yahweh of hosts, their God
فِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلرَّابِعِ وَٱلْعِشْرِينَ مِنَ ٱلشَّهْرِ ٱلسَّادِسِ، فِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلثَّانِيَةِ لِدَارِيُوسَ ٱلْمَلِكِ. ١٥ 15
in the twenty-fourth day of the sixth month, in the second year of Darius the king.
