هُوشَع 5

«اِسْمَعُوا هَذَا أَيُّهَا ٱلْكَهَنَةُ! وَٱنْصِتُوا يَا بَيْتَ إِسْرَائِيلَ! وَأَصْغُوا يَا بَيْتَ ٱلْمَلِكِ! لِأَنَّ عَلَيْكُمُ ٱلْقَضَاءَ، إِذْ صِرْتُمْ فَخًّا فِي مِصْفَاةَ، وَشَبَكَةً مَبْسُوطَةً عَلَى تَابُورَ. ١ 1
“Hear this, priests! Pay attention, house of Israel! Listen, house of the king! For judgment is coming against you all. You have been a snare at Mizpah and a net spread over Tabor.
وَقَدْ تَوَغَّلُوا فِي ذَبَائِحِ ٱلزَّيَغَانِ، فَأَنَا تَأْدِيبٌ لِجَمِيعِهِمْ. ٢ 2
The rebels stand deep in slaughter, but I will punish all of them.
أَنَا أَعْرِفُ أَفْرَايِمَ. وَإِسْرَائِيلُ لَيْسَ مَخْفِيًّا عَنِّي. إِنَّكَ ٱلْآنَ زَنَيْتَ يَا أَفْرَايِمُ. قَدْ تَنَجَّسَ إِسْرَائِيلُ. ٣ 3
I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hidden from me. Ephraim, now you have become like a prostitute; Israel is defiled.
أَفْعَالُهُمْ لَا تَدَعُهُمْ يَرْجِعُونَ إِلَى إِلَهِهِمْ، لِأَنَّ رُوحَ ٱلزِّنَى فِي بَاطِنِهِمْ، وَهُمْ لَا يَعْرِفُونَ ٱلرَّبَّ. ٤ 4
Their deeds will not allow them to turn to God, for the mind of adultery is in them, and they do not know Yahweh.
وَقَدْ أُذِلَّتْ عَظَمَةُ إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي وَجْهِهِ، فَيَتَعَثَّرُ إِسْرَائِيلُ وَأَفْرَايِمُ فِي إِثْمِهِمَا، وَيَتَعَثَّرُ يَهُوذَا أَيْضًا مَعَهُمَا. ٥ 5
The pride of Israel testifies against him; so Israel and Ephraim will stumble in their guilt; and Judah also will stumble with them.
يَذْهَبُونَ بِغَنَمِهِمْ وَبَقَرِهِمْ لِيَطْلُبُوا ٱلرَّبَّ وَلَا يَجِدُونَهُ. قَدْ تَنَحَّى عَنْهُمْ. ٦ 6
They will go with their flocks and herds to seek Yahweh, but they will not find him, for he has withdrawn himself from them.
قَدْ غَدَرُوا بِٱلرَّبِّ. لِأَنَّهُمْ وَلَدُوا أَوْلَادًا أَجْنَبِيِّينَ، اَلْآنَ يَأْكُلُهُمْ شَهْرٌ مَعَ أَنْصِبَتِهِمْ. ٧ 7
They were unfaithful to Yahweh, for they have borne illegitimate children. Now the new moon festivals will devour them with their fields.
«اِضْرِبُوا بِٱلْبُوقِ فِي جِبْعَةَ، بِٱلْقَرْنِ فِي ٱلرَّامَةِ. ٱصْرُخُوا فِي بَيْتِ آوَنَ. وَرَاءَكَ يَا بَنْيَامِينُ. ٨ 8
Blow the horn in Gibeah, and the trumpet in Ramah. Sound a battle cry at Beth Aven: 'We will follow you, Benjamin!'
يَصِيرُ أَفْرَايِمُ خَرَابًا فِي يَوْمِ ٱلتَّأْدِيبِ. فِي أَسْبَاطِ إِسْرَائِيلَ أَعْلَمْتُ ٱلْيَقِينَ. ٩ 9
Ephraim will become a desolation on the day of punishment. Among the tribes of Israel I have declared what is certain to happen.
صَارَتْ رُؤَسَاءُ يَهُوذَا كَنَاقِلِي ٱلتُّخُومِ. فَأَسْكُبُ عَلَيْهِمْ سَخَطِي كَٱلْمَاءِ. ١٠ 10
The leaders of Judah are like those who move a boundary stone. I will pour my wrath on them like water.
أَفْرَايِمُ مَظْلُومٌ مَسْحُوقُ ٱلْقَضَاءِ، لِأَنَّهُ ٱرْتَضَى أَنْ يَمْضِيَ وَرَاءَ ٱلْوَصِيَّةِ. ١١ 11
Ephraim is crushed; he is crushed in judgment, because he has willingly walked after idols.
فَأَنَا لِأَفْرَايِمَ كَٱلْعُثِّ، وَلِبَيْتِ يَهُوذَا كَٱلسُّوسِ. ١٢ 12
So I will be like a moth to Ephraim, and like rot to the house of Judah.
«وَرَأَى أَفْرَايِمُ مَرَضَهُ وَيَهُوذَا جُرْحَهُ، فَمَضَى أَفْرَايِمُ إِلَى أَشُّورَ، وَأَرْسَلَ إِلَى مَلِكٍ عَدُوٍّ. وَلَكِنَّهُ لَا يَسْتَطِيعُ أَنْ يَشْفِيَكُمْ وَلَا أَنْ يُزِيلَ مِنْكُمُ ٱلْجُرْحَ. ١٣ 13
When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah saw his wound, then Ephraim went to Assyria, and Judah sent messengers to the great king. But he was not able to cure you people or heal your wound.
لِأَنِّي لِأَفْرَايِمَ كَٱلْأَسَدِ، وَلِبَيْتِ يَهُوذَا كَشِبْلِ ٱلْأَسَدِ. فَإِنِّي أَنَا أَفْتَرِسُ وَأَمْضِي وَآخُذُ وَلَا مُنْقِذٌ. ١٤ 14
So I will be like a lion to Ephraim, and like a young lion to the house of Judah. I, even I, will tear and go away; I will carry them off, and there will be no one to rescue them.
أَذْهَبُ وَأَرْجِعُ إِلَى مَكَانِي حَتَّى يُجَازَوْا وَيَطْلُبُوا وَجْهِي. فِي ضِيقِهِمْ يُبَكِّرُونَ إِلَيَّ». ١٥ 15
I will go and return to my place, until they acknowledge their guilt and seek my face, until they earnestly seek me in their distress.”
