إِشَعْيَاءَ 19

وَحْيٌ مِنْ جِهَةِ مِصْرَ: هُوَذَا ٱلرَّبُّ رَاكِبٌ عَلَى سَحَابَةٍ سَرِيعَةٍ وَقَادِمٌ إِلَى مِصْرَ، فَتَرْتَجِفُ أَوْثَانُ مِصْرَ مِنْ وَجْهِهِ، وَيَذُوبُ قَلْبُ مِصْرَ دَاخِلَهَا. ١ 1
A declaration about Egypt. See, Yahweh rides on a swift cloud and is coming to Egypt; the idols of Egypt quake before him, and the hearts of the Egyptians melt within themselves.
وَأُهَيِّجُ مِصْرِيِّينَ عَلَى مِصْرِيِّينَ، فَيُحَارِبُونَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ أَخَاهُ وَكُلُّ وَاحِدٍ صَاحِبَهُ: مَدِينَةٌ مَدِينَةً، وَمَمْلَكَةٌ مَمْلَكَةً. ٢ 2
“I will stir up Egyptians against Egyptians: A man will fight against his brother, and a man against his neighbor; city will be against city, and kingdom against kingdom.
وَتُهْرَاقُ رُوحُ مِصْرَ دَاخِلَهَا، وَأُفْنِي مَشُورَتَهَا، فَيَسْأَلُونَ ٱلْأَوْثَانَ وَٱلْعَازِفِينَ وَأَصْحَابَ ٱلتَّوَابِعِ وَٱلْعَرَّافِينَ. ٣ 3
The spirit of Egypt will be weakened from within. I will destroy his advice, though they sought the advice of idols, dead men's spirits, mediums, and spiritualists.
وَأُغْلِقُ عَلَى ٱلْمِصْرِيِّينَ فِي يَدِ مَوْلًى قَاسٍ، فَيَتَسَلَّطُ عَلَيْهِمْ مَلِكٌ عَزِيزٌ، يَقُولُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ. ٤ 4
I will give the Egyptians into the hand of a harsh master, and a strong king will rule over them— this is the declaration of the Lord Yahweh of hosts.”
وَتُنَشَّفُ ٱلْمِيَاهُ مِنَ ٱلْبَحْرِ، وَيَجِفُّ ٱلنَّهْرُ وَيَيْبَسُ. ٥ 5
The waters of the sea will dry up, and the river will dry up and become empty.
وَتُنْتِنُ ٱلْأَنْهَارُ، وَتَضْعُفُ وَتَجِفُّ سَوَاقِي مِصْرَ، وَيَتْلَفُ ٱلْقَصَبُ وَٱلْأَسَلُ. ٦ 6
The rivers will become foul; the streams of Egypt will dwindle and dry up; the reeds and flags will wither away.
وَٱلرِّيَاضُ عَلَى ٱلنِّيلِ عَلَى حَافَةِ ٱلنِّيلِ، وَكُلُّ مَزْرَعَةٍ عَلَى ٱلنِّيلِ تَيْبَسُ وَتَتَبَدَّدُ وَلَا تَكُونُ. ٧ 7
The reeds along the Nile, at the mouth of the Nile, and every sown field beside the Nile will become parched, will be driven away, and will be no more.
وَٱلصَّيَّادُونَ يَئِنُّونَ، وَكُلُّ ٱلَّذِينَ يُلْقُونَ شِصًّا فِي ٱلنِّيلِ يَنُوحُونَ. وَٱلَّذِينَ يَبْسُطُونَ شَبَكَةً عَلَى وَجْهِ ٱلْمِيَاهِ يَحْزَنُونَ، ٨ 8
The fishermen will wail and mourn, and all who cast a hook into the Nile will mourn, and those who spread nets on the waters will grieve.
وَيَخْزَى ٱلَّذِينَ يَعْمَلُونَ ٱلْكَتَّانَ ٱلْمُمَشَّطَ، وَٱلَّذِينَ يَحِيكُونَ ٱلْأَنْسِجَةَ ٱلْبَيْضَاءَ. ٩ 9
The workers in combed flax and those who weave white cloth will turn pale.
وَتَكُونُ عُمُدُهَا مَسْحُوقَةً، وَكُلُّ ٱلْعَامِلِينَ بِٱلْأُجْرَةِ مُكْتَئِبِي ٱلنَّفْسِ. ١٠ 10
The cloth workers of Egypt will be crushed; all who work for hire will be grieved within themselves.
إِنَّ رُؤَسَاءَ صُوعَنَ أَغْبِيَاءُ! حُكَمَاءُ مُشِيرِي فِرْعَوْنَ مَشُورَتُهُمْ بَهِيمِيَّةٌ! كَيْفَ تَقُولُونَ لِفِرْعَوْنَ: «أَنَا ٱبْنُ حُكَمَاءَ، ٱبْنُ مُلُوكٍ قُدَمَاءَ»؟ ١١ 11
The princes of Zoan are completely foolish. The advice of the wisest advisors of Pharaoh has become senseless. How can you say to Pharaoh, “I am the son of wise men, a son of ancient kings?”
فَأَيْنَ هُمْ حُكَمَاؤُكَ؟ فَلْيُخْبِرُوكَ. لِيَعْرِفُوا مَاذَا قَضَى بِهِ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ عَلَى مِصْرَ. ١٢ 12
Where then are your wise men? Let them tell you and make known what Yahweh of hosts plans concerning Egypt.
رُؤَسَاءُ صُوعَنَ صَارُوا أَغْبِيَاءَ. رُؤَسَاءُ نُوفَ ٱنْخَدَعُوا. وَأَضَلَّ مِصْرَ وُجُوهُ أَسْبَاطِهَا. ١٣ 13
The princes of Zoan have become fools, the princes of Memphis are deceived; they have made Egypt go astray, who are the cornerstones of her tribes.
مَزَجَ ٱلرَّبُّ فِي وَسَطِهَا رُوحَ غَيٍّ، فَأَضَلُّوا مِصْرَ فِي كُلِّ عَمَلِهَا، كَتَرَنُّحِ ٱلسَّكْرَانِ فِي قَيْئِهِ. ١٤ 14
Yahweh has mixed a spirit of distortion into her midst, and they have led Egypt astray in all she does, like a drunk staggering in his vomit.
فَلَا يَكُونُ لِمِصْرَ عَمَلٌ يَعْمَلُهُ رَأْسٌ أَوْذَنَبٌ، نَخْلَةٌ أَوْ أَسَلَةٌ. ١٥ 15
There is nothing anyone can do for Egypt, whether head or tail, palm branch or reed.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ تَكُونُ مِصْرُ كَٱلنِّسَاءِ، فَتَرْتَعِدُ وَتَرْجُفُ مِنْ هَزَّةِ يَدِ رَبِّ ٱلْجُنُودِ ٱلَّتِي يَهُزُّهَا عَلَيْهَا. ١٦ 16
In that day, the Egyptians will be like women. They will tremble and fear because of the upraised hand of Yahweh of hosts that he raises over them.
وَتَكُونُ أَرْضُ يَهُوذَا رُعْبًا لِمِصْرَ. كُلُّ مَنْ تَذَكَّرَهَا يَرْتَعِبُ مِنْ أَمَامِ قَضَاءِ رَبِّ ٱلْجُنُودِ ٱلَّذِي يَقْضِي بِهِ عَلَيْهَا. ١٧ 17
The land of Judah will become a cause of staggering to Egypt. Whenever anyone reminds them of her, they will be afraid, because of the plan of Yahweh, that he is planning against them.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ يَكُونُ فِي أَرْضِ مِصْرَ خَمْسُ مُدُنٍ تَتَكَلَّمُ بِلُغَةِ كَنْعَانَ وَتَحْلِفُ لِرَبِّ ٱلْجُنُودِ، يُقَالُ لِإِحْدَاهَا «مَدِينَةُ ٱلشَّمْسِ». ١٨ 18
In that day there will be five cities in the land of Egypt that speak the language of Canaan and swear allegiance to Yahweh of hosts. One of these will be called The City of the Sun.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ يَكُونُ مَذْبَحٌ لِلرَّبِّ فِي وَسَطِ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ، وَعَمُودٌ لِلرَّبِّ عِنْدَ تُخْمِهَا. ١٩ 19
In that day there will be an altar to Yahweh in the middle of the land of Egypt, and a stone pillar at the border to Yahweh.
فَيَكُونُ عَلَامَةً وَشَهَادَةً لِرَبِّ ٱلْجُنُودِ فِي أَرْضِ مِصْرَ. لِأَنَّهُمْ يَصْرُخُونَ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ بِسَبَبِ ٱلْمُضَايِقِينَ، فَيُرْسِلُ لَهُمْ مُخَلِّصًا وَمُحَامِيًا وَيُنْقِذُهُمْ. ٢٠ 20
It will be as a sign and a witness to Yahweh of hosts in the land of Egypt. When they cry to Yahweh because of oppressors, he will send them a savior and a defender, and he will deliver them.
فَيُعْرَفُ ٱلرَّبُّ فِي مِصْرَ، وَيَعْرِفُ ٱلْمِصْرِيُّونَ ٱلرَّبَّ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ، وَيُقَدِّمُونَ ذَبِيحَةً وَتَقْدِمَةً، وَيَنْذُرُونَ لِلرَّبِّ نَذْرًا وَيُوفُونَ بِهِ. ٢١ 21
Yahweh will become known to Egypt, and the Egyptians will acknowledge Yahweh on that day. They will worship with sacrifices and offerings, and will make vows to Yahweh and fulfill them.
وَيَضْرِبُ ٱلرَّبُّ مِصْرَ ضَارِبًا فَشَافِيًا، فَيَرْجِعُونَ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ فَيَسْتَجِيبُ لَهُمْ وَيَشْفِيهِمْ. ٢٢ 22
Yahweh will afflict Egypt, afflicting and healing. They will return to Yahweh; he will hear their prayer and will heal them.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ تَكُونُ سِكَّةٌ مِنْ مِصْرَ إِلَى أَشُّورَ، فَيَجِيءُ ٱلْأَشُّورِيُّونَ إِلَى مِصْرَ وَٱلْمِصْرِيُّونَ إِلَى أَشُّورَ، وَيَعْبُدُ ٱلْمِصْرِيُّونَ مَعَ ٱلْأَشُّورِيِّينَ. ٢٣ 23
In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian will come to Egypt, and the Egyptian to Assyria; and the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ يَكُونُ إِسْرَائِيلُ ثُلُثًا لِمِصْرَ وَلِأَشُّورَ، بَرَكَةً فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ، ٢٤ 24
In that day, Israel will be the third with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth;
بِهَا يُبَارِكُ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ قَائِلًا: «مُبَارَكٌ شَعْبِي مِصْرُ، وَعَمَلُ يَدَيَّ أَشُّورُ، وَمِيرَاثِي إِسْرَائِيلُ». ٢٥ 25
Yahweh of hosts will bless them and say, “Blessed be Egypt, my people; Assyria, the work of my hands; and Israel, my inheritance.”
