إِشَعْيَاءَ 20

فِي سَنَةِ مَجِيءِ تَرْتَانَ إِلَى أَشْدُودَ، حِينَ أَرْسَلَهُ سَرْجُونُ مَلِكُ أَشُّورَ فَحَارَبَ أَشْدُودَ وَأَخَذَهَا، ١ 1
In the year that Tartan came to Ashdod, when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him, he fought against Ashdod and took it.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْوَقْتِ تَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ عَنْ يَدِ إِشَعْيَاءَ بْنِ آمُوصَ قَائِلًا: «اِذْهَبْ وَحُلَّ ٱلْمِسْحَ عَنْ حَقْوَيْكَ وَٱخْلَعْ حِذَاءَكَ عَنْ رِجْلَيْكَ». فَفَعَلَ هَكَذَا وَمَشَى مُعَرًّى وَحَافِيًا. ٢ 2
At that time Yahweh spoke by Isaiah son of Amoz and said, “Go and remove the sackcloth from your waist, and take your sandals off your feet.” He did so, walking naked and barefoot.
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «كَمَا مَشَى عَبْدِي إِشَعْيَاءُ مُعَرًّى وَحَافِيًا ثَلَاثَ سِنِينٍ، آيَةً وَأُعْجُوبَةً عَلَى مِصْرَ وَعَلَى كُوشَ، ٣ 3
Yahweh said, “Just as my servant Isaiah has walked naked and barefoot for three years, it is a sign and an omen concerning Egypt and concerning Cush—
هَكَذَا يَسُوقُ مَلِكُ أَشُّورَ سَبْيَ مِصْرَ وَجَلَاءَ كُوشَ، ٱلْفِتْيَانَ وَٱلشُّيُوخَ، عُرَاةً وَحُفَاةً وَمَكْشُوفِي ٱلْأَسْتَاهِ خِزْيًا لِمِصْرَ. ٤ 4
in this way the king of Assyria will lead away the captives of Egypt, and the exiles of Cush, young and old, naked and barefoot, and with buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Egypt.
فَيَرْتَاعُونَ وَيَخْجَلُونَ مِنْ أَجْلِ كُوشَ رَجَائِهِمْ، وَمِنْ أَجْلِ مِصْرَ فَخْرِهِمْ. ٥ 5
They will be dismayed and ashamed, because of Cush their hope and of Egypt their glory.
وَيَقُولُ سَاكِنُ هَذَا ٱلسَّاحِلِ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ: هُوَذَا هَكَذَا مَلْجَأُنَا ٱلَّذِي هَرَبْنَا إِلَيْهِ لِلْمَعُونَةِ لِنَنْجُو مِنْ مَلِكِ أَشُّورَ، فَكَيْفَ نَسْلَمُ نَحْنُ؟». ٦ 6
The inhabitants of these coasts will say on that day, 'Indeed, this was our source of hope, where we fled for help to be rescued from the king of Assyria, and now, how can we escape?'”
