إِشَعْيَاءَ 17

وَحْيٌ مِنْ جِهَةِ دِمَشْقَ: هُوَذَا دِمَشْقُ تُزَالُ مِنْ بَيْنِ ٱلْمُدُنِ وَتَكُونُ رُجْمَةَ رَدْمٍ. ١ 1
A declaration about Damascus.
مُدُنُ عَرُوعِيرَ مَتْرُوكَةٌ. تَكُونُ لِلْقُطْعَانِ، فَتَرْبِضُ وَلَيْسَ مَنْ يُخِيفُ. ٢ 2
The cities of Aroer will be abandoned. They will be places for flocks to lie down, and no one will frighten them.
وَيَزُولُ ٱلْحِصْنُ مِنْ أَفْرَايِمَ وَٱلْمُلْكُ مِنْ دِمَشْقَ وَبَقِيَّةِ أَرَامَ. فَتَصِيرُ كَمَجْدِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، يَقُولُ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ. ٣ 3
Fortified cities will disappear from Ephraim, the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Aram—they will be like the glory of the people of Israel—this is the declaration of Yahweh of hosts.
وَيَكُونُ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ أَنَّ مَجْدَ يَعْقُوبَ يُذَلُّ، وَسَمَانَةَ لَحْمِهِ تَهْزُلُ، ٤ 4
It will come about on that day that the glory of Jacob will become thin, and the fatness of his flesh will become lean.
وَيَكُونُ كَجَمْعِ ٱلْحَصَّادِينَ ٱلزَّرْعَ، وَذِرَاعُهُ تَحْصِدُ ٱلسَّنَابِلَ، وَيَكُونُ كَمَنْ يَلْقُطُ سَنَابِلَ فِي وَادِي رَفَايِمَ. ٥ 5
It will be as when a harvester gathers the standing grain, and his arm reaps the heads of grain. It will be as when one gleans heads of grain in the Valley of Rephaim.
وَتَبْقَى فِيهِ خُصَاصَةٌ كَنَفْضِ زَيْتُونَةٍ، حَبَّتَانِ أَوْ ثَلَاثٌ فِي رَأْسِ ٱلْفَرْعِ، وَأَرْبَعٌ أَوْ خَمْسٌ فِي أَفْنَانِ ٱلْمُثْمِرَةِ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٦ 6
Gleanings will be left, however, as when the olive tree is shaken: two or three olives in the top of the uppermost bough, four or five in the highest branches of a fruitful tree—this is the declaration of Yahweh, the God of Israel.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ يَلْتَفِتُ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ إِلَى صَانِعِهِ وَتَنْظُرُ عَيْنَاهُ إِلَى قُدُّوسِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، ٧ 7
On that day men will look toward their Maker, and their eyes will look to the Holy One of Israel.
وَلَا يَلْتَفِتُ إِلَى ٱلْمَذَابِحِ صَنْعَةِ يَدَيْهِ، وَلَا يَنْظُرُ إِلَى مَا صَنَعَتْهُ أَصَابِعُهُ: ٱلسَّوَارِيَ وَٱلشَّمْسَاتِ. ٨ 8
They will not look to the altars, the work of their hands, nor will they look to what their fingers have made, the Asherah poles or the sun images.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ تَصِيرُ مُدُنُهُ ٱلْحَصِينَةُ كَٱلرَّدْمِ فِي ٱلْغَابِ، وَٱلشَّوَامِخُ ٱلَّتِي تَرَكُوهَا مِنْ وَجْهِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ فَصَارَتْ خَرَابًا. ٩ 9
On that day their strong cities will be like the abandoned wooded slopes on the hill summits, that were forsaken because of the people of Israel and that will become a desolation.
لِأَنَّكِ نَسِيتِ إِلَهَ خَلَاصِكِ وَلَمْ تَذْكُرِي صَخْرَةَ حِصْنِكِ، لِذَلِكَ تَغْرِسِينَ أَغْرَاسًا نَزِهَةً وَتَنْصِبِينَ نُصْبَةً غَرِيبَةً. ١٠ 10
For you have forgotten the God of your salvation, and have ignored the rock of your strength. So you plant pleasant plants, and set out vine branches received from a stranger,
يَوْمَ غَرْسِكِ تُسَيِّجِينَهَا، وَفِي ٱلصَّبَاحِ تَجْعَلِينَ زَرْعَكِ يُزْهِرُ. وَلَكِنْ يَهْرُبُ ٱلْحَصِيدُ فِي يَوْمِ ٱلضَّرْبَةِ ٱلْمُهْلِكَةِ وَٱلْكَآبَةِ ٱلْعَدِيمَةِ ٱلرَّجَاءِ. ١١ 11
on the day you plant and hedge and cultivate. Soon your seed will grow, but the harvest will fail on a day of grief and of desperate sorrow.
آهِ! ضَجِيجُ شُعُوبٍ كَثِيرَةٍ تَضِجُّ كَضَجِيجِ ٱلْبَحْرِ، وَهَدِيرِ قَبَائِلَ تَهْدِرُ كَهَدِيرِ مِيَاهٍ غَزِيرَةٍ. ١٢ 12
Woe! The uproar of many peoples, that roar like the roaring of the seas, and the rushing of nations, that rush like the rushing of mighty waters!
قَبَائِلُ تَهْدِرُ كَهَدِيرِ مِيَاهٍ كَثِيرَةٍ. وَلَكِنَّهُ يَنْتَهِرُهَا فَتَهْرُبُ بَعِيدًا، وَتُطْرَدُ كَعُصَافَةِ ٱلْجِبَالِ أَمَامَ ٱلرِّيحِ، وَكَالْجُلِّ أَمَامَ ٱلزَّوْبَعَةِ. ١٣ 13
The nations will roar like the rushing of many waters, but he will rebuke them and they will flee far away, they will be chased before the wind like chaff on the mountains, and like weeds whirling before a storm.
فِي وَقْتِ ٱلْمَسَاءِ إِذَا رُعْبٌ. قَبْلَ ٱلصُّبْحِ لَيْسُوا هُمْ. هَذَا نَصِيبُ نَاهِبِينَا وَحَظُّ سَالِبِينَا. ١٤ 14
In the evening, see, terror! Before the morning they will be gone! This is the portion of those who loot us, the lot of those who rob us.
