إِشَعْيَاءَ 16

أَرْسِلُوا خِرْفَانَ حَاكِمِ ٱلْأَرْضِ مِنْ سَالِعَ نَحْوَ ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ إِلَى جَبَلِ ٱبْنَةِ صِهْيَوْنَ. ١ 1
Send rams to the ruler of the land from Selah in the wilderness, to the mount of the daughter of Zion.
وَيَحْدُثُ أَنَّهُ كَطَائِرٍ تَائِهٍ، كَفِرَاخٍ مُنَفَّرَةٍ تَكُونُ بَنَاتُ مُوآبَ فِي مَعَابِرِ أَرْنُونَ. ٢ 2
As wandering birds, as a scattered nest, so the women of Moab are at the fords of the Arnon River.
هَاتِي مَشُورَةً، ٱصْنَعِي إِنْصَافًا، ٱجْعَلِي ظِلَّكِ كَٱللَّيْلِ فِي وَسَطِ ٱلظَّهِيرَةِ، ٱسْتُرِي ٱلْمَطْرُودِينَ، لَا تُظْهِرِي ٱلْهَارِبِينَ. ٣ 3
“Give instruction, execute justice; provide some shade like night in the middle of the day; hide the fugitives; do not betray the fugitives.
لِيَتَغَرَّبْ عِنْدَكِ مَطْرُودُو مُوآبَ. كُونِي سِتْرًا لَهُمْ مِنْ وَجْهِ ٱلْمُخَرِّبِ، لِأَنَّ ٱلظَّالِمَ يَبِيدُ، وَيَنْتَهِي ٱلْخَرَابُ، وَيَفْنَى عَنِ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلدَّائِسُونَ. ٤ 4
Let them live among you, the refugees from Moab; be a hiding place for them from the destroyer.” For the oppression will stop, and destruction will cease, those who trample will disappear from the land.
فَيُثَبَّتُ ٱلْكُرْسِيُّ بِٱلرَّحْمَةِ، وَيَجْلِسُ عَلَيْهِ بِٱلْأَمَانَةِ فِي خَيْمَةِ دَاوُدَ قَاضٍ، وَيَطْلُبُ ٱلْحَقَّ وَيُبَادِرُ بِٱلْعَدْلِ. ٥ 5
A throne will be established in covenant faithfulness; and one from David's tent will faithfully sit there. He will judge as he seeks justice and does righteousness.
قَدْ سَمِعْنَا بِكِبْرِيَاءِ مُوآبَ ٱلْمُتَكَبِّرَةِ جِدًّا عَظَمَتِهَا وَكِبْرِيَائِهَا وَصَلَفِهَا بُطْلِ ٱفْتِخَارِهَا. ٦ 6
We have heard of Moab's pride, his arrogance, his boasting, and his anger. But his boastings are empty words.
لِذَلِكَ تُوَلْوِلُ مُوآبُ. عَلَى مُوآبَ كُلُّهَا يُوَلْوِلُ. تَئِنُّونَ عَلَى أُسُسِ قِيرَ حَارِسَةَ، إِنَّمَا هِيَ مَضْرُوبَةٌ. ٧ 7
So Moab wails for Moab—they all wail! Mourn, you who are utterly destroyed, for the raisin cakes of Kir Hareseth.
لِأَنَّ حُقُولَ حَشْبُونَ ذَبُلَتْ. كَرْمَةُ سِبْمَةَ كَسَّرَ أُمَرَاءُ ٱلْأُمَمِ أَفْضَلَهَا. وَصَلَتْ إِلَى يَعْزِيرَ. تَاهَتْ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ، ٱمْتَدَّتْ أَغْصَانُهَا، عَبَرَتِ ٱلْبَحْرَ. ٨ 8
The fields of Heshbon have dried up as well as the vines of Sibmah. The rulers of the nations have trampled the choice vines that reached to Jazer and spread into the desert. Its shoots spread abroad; they went over to the sea.
لِذَلِكَ أَبْكِي بُكَاءَ يَعْزِيرَ عَلَى كَرْمَةِ سِبْمَةَ. أُرْوِيكُمَا بِدُمُوعِي يَا حَشْبُونُ وَأَلْعَالَةُ، لِأَنَّهُ عَلَى قِطَافِكِ وَعَلَى حَصَادِكِ قَدْ وَقَعَتْ جَلَبَةٌ. ٩ 9
Indeed I will weep along with Jazer for the vineyard of Sibmah. I will water you with my tears, Heshbon, and Elealeh. For on your fields of summer fruits and harvest I have ended the shouts of joy.
وَٱنْتُزِعَ ٱلْفَرَحُ وَٱلِٱبْتِهَاجُ مِنَ ٱلْبُسْتَانِ، وَلَا يُغَنَّى فِي ٱلْكُرُومِ وَلَا يُتَرَنَّمُ، وَلَا يَدُوسُ دَائِسٌ خَمْرًا فِي ٱلْمَعَاصِرِ. أَبْطَلْتُ ٱلْهُتَافَ. ١٠ 10
Gladness and joy are taken away from the fruit tree groves; and there is no singing, or shouts in the vineyards. No one treads out wine in the presses, for I have put an end to the shouts of the one who treads.
لِذَلِكَ تَرِنُّ أَحْشَائِي كَعُودٍ مِنْ أَجْلِ مُوآبَ وَبَطْنِي مِنْ أَجْلِ قِيرَ حَارِسَ. ١١ 11
So my heart sighs like a harp for Moab, and my inward being for Kir Hareseth.
وَيَكُونُ إِذَا ظَهَرَتْ، إِذَا تَعِبَتْ مُوآبُ عَلَى ٱلْمُرْتَفَعَةِ وَدَخَلَتْ إِلَى مَقْدِسِهَا تُصَلِّي، أَنَّهَا لَا تَفُوزُ. ١٢ 12
When Moab wears himself out on the high place and enters his temple to pray, his prayers will accomplish nothing.
هَذَا هُوَ ٱلْكَلَامُ ٱلَّذِي كَلَّمَ بِهِ ٱلرَّبُّ مُوآبَ مُنْذُ زَمَانٍ. ١٣ 13
This is the word that Yahweh spoke concerning Moab previously.
وَٱلْآنَ تَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ قَائِلًا: «فِي ثَلَاثِ سِنِينَ كَسِنِي ٱلْأَجِيرِ يُهَانُ مَجْدُ مُوآبَ بِكُلِّ ٱلْجُمْهُورِ ٱلْعَظِيمِ، وَتَكُونُ ٱلْبَقِيَّةُ قَلِيلَةً صَغِيرَةً لَا كَبِيرَةً». ١٤ 14
Again Yahweh speaks, “Within three years, the glory of Moab will disappear; in spite of his many people, the remnant will be very few and insignificant.”
