إِشَعْيَاءَ 21

وَحْيٌ مِنْ جِهَةِ بَرِّيَّةِ ٱلْبَحْرِ: كَزَوَابِعَ فِي ٱلْجَنُوبِ عَاصِفَةٍ، يَأْتِي مِنَ ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ مِنْ أَرْضٍ مَخُوفَةٍ. ١ 1
A declaration about the desert by the sea. Like stormwinds sweeping through the Negev it comes passing through from the wilderness, from a terrible land.
قَدْ أُعْلِنَتْ لِي رُؤْيَا قَاسِيَةٌ: ٱلنَّاهِبُ نَاهِبًا وَٱلْمُخْرِبُ مُخْرِبًا. اِصْعَدِي يَا عِيلَامُ. حَاصِرِي يَا مَادِي. قَدْ أَبْطَلْتُ كُلَّ أَنِينِهَا. ٢ 2
A distressing vision has been given to me: the treacherous man deals treacherously, and the destroyer destroys. Go up and attack, Elam; besiege, Media; I will stop all her groaning.
لِذَلِكَ ٱمْتَلَأَتْ حَقْوَايَ وَجَعًا، وَأَخَذَنِي مَخَاضٌ كَمَخَاضِ ٱلْوَالِدَةِ. تَلَوَّيْتُ حَتَّى لَا أَسْمَعُ. اَنْدَهَشْتُ حَتَّى لَا أَنْظُرُ. ٣ 3
Therefore my loins are filled with pain; pains like the pains of a woman in labor have taken hold of me; I am bowed down by what I heard; I am disturbed by what I saw.
تَاهَ قَلْبِي. بَغَتَنِي رُعْبٌ. لَيْلَةُ لَذَّتِي جَعَلَهَا لِي رِعْدَةً. ٤ 4
My heart pounds; I shake with fear. Twilight was my desire, but it brought me terror.
يُرَتِّبُونَ ٱلْمَائِدَةَ، يَحْرُسُونَ ٱلْحِرَاسَةَ، يَأْكُلُونَ. يَشْرَبُونَ. قُومُوا أَيُّهَا ٱلرُّؤَسَاءُ ٱمْسَحُوا ٱلْمِجَنَّ! ٥ 5
They prepare the table, they spread rugs and eat and drink; arise, princes, anoint your shields with oil.
لِأَنَّهُ هَكَذَا قَالَ لِي ٱلسَّيِّدُ: «ٱذْهَبْ أَقِمِ ٱلْحَارِسَ. لِيُخْبِرْ بِمَا يَرَى». ٦ 6
For this is what the Lord said to me, “Go, post a watchman; he must report what he sees.
فَرَأَى رُكَّابًا أَزْوَاجَ فُرْسَانٍ. رُكَّابَ حَمِيرٍ. رُكَّابَ جِمَالٍ. فَأَصْغَى إِصْغَاءً شَدِيدًا، ٧ 7
When he sees a chariot, a pair of horsemen, riders on donkeys, and riders on camels, then he must pay attention and be very alert.”
ثُمَّ صَرَخَ كَأَسَدٍ: «أَيُّهَا ٱلسَّيِّدُ، أَنَا قَائِمٌ عَلَى ٱلْمَرْصَدِ دَائِمًا فِي ٱلنَّهَارِ، وَأَنَا وَاقِفٌ عَلَى ٱلْمَحْرَسِ كُلَّ ٱللَّيَالِي. ٨ 8
The watchman cries out, “Lord, on the watchtower I stand all day, every day, and at my post I stand all night long.”
وَهُوَذَا رُكَّابٌ مِنَ ٱلرِّجَالِ. أَزْوَاجٌ مِنَ ٱلْفُرْسَانِ». فَأَجَابَ وَقَالَ: «سَقَطَتْ، سَقَطَتْ بَابِلُ، وَجَمِيعُ تَمَاثِيلِ آلِهَتِهَا ٱلْمَنْحُوتَةِ كَسَّرَهَا إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ». ٩ 9
Here comes a chariot with a man and a pair of horsemen. He calls out, “Babylon has fallen, fallen, and all the carved figures of its gods are broken to the ground.”
يَا دِيَاسَتِي وَبَنِي بَيْدَرِي. مَا سَمِعْتُهُ مِنْ رَبِّ ٱلْجُنُودِ إِلَهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ أَخْبَرْتُكُمْ بِهِ. ١٠ 10
My threshed and winnowed ones, children of my threshing floor! What I have heard from Yahweh of hosts, the God of Israel, I have declared to you.
وَحْيٌ مِنْ جِهَةِ دُومَةَ: صَرَخَ إِلَيَّ صَارِخٌ مِنْ سَعِيرَ: «يَا حَارِسُ، مَا مِنَ ٱللَّيْلِ؟ يَا حَارِسُ، مَا مِنَ ٱللَّيْلِ؟» ١١ 11
A declaration about Dumah. One calls to me from Seir, “Watchman, what is left of the night? Watchman, what is left of the night?”
قَالَ ٱلْحَارِسُ: «أَتَى صَبَاحٌ وَأَيْضًا لَيْلٌ. إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تَطْلُبُونَ فَٱطْلُبُوا. ٱرْجِعُوا، تَعَالَوْا». ١٢ 12
The watchman said, “The morning comes and also the night. If you want to ask, then ask; and come back again.”
وَحْيٌ مِنْ جِهَةِ بِلَادِ ٱلْعَرَبِ: فِي ٱلْوَعْرِ فِي بِلَادِ ٱلْعَرَبِ تَبِيتِينَ، يَا قَوَافِلَ ٱلدَّدَانِيِّينَ. ١٣ 13
A declaration about Arabia. In the wilderness of Arabia you spend the night, you caravans of Dedanites.
هَاتُوا مَاءً لِمُلَاقَاةِ ٱلْعَطْشَانِ، يَا سُكَّانَ أَرْضِ تَيْمَاءَ. وَافُوا ٱلْهَارِبَ بِخُبْزِهِ. ١٤ 14
Bring water for the thirsty; inhabitants of the land of Tema, meet the fugitives with bread.
فَإِنَّهُمْ مِنْ أَمَامِ ٱلسُّيُوفِ قَدْ هَرَبُوا. مِنْ أَمَامِ ٱلسَّيْفِ ٱلْمَسْلُولِ، وَمِنْ أَمَامِ ٱلْقَوْسِ ٱلْمَشْدُودَةِ، وَمِنْ أَمَامِ شِدَّةِ ٱلْحَرْبِ. ١٥ 15
For they have fled from the sword, from the drawn sword, from the bent bow, and from the weight of war.
فَإِنَّهُ هَكَذَا قَالَ لِيَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ: «فِي مُدَّةِ سَنَةٍ كَسَنَةِ ٱلْأَجِيرِ يَفْنَى كُلُّ مَجْدِ قِيدَارَ، ١٦ 16
For this is what the Lord said to me, “Within a year, as a laborer hired for a year would see it, all the glory of Kedar will end.
وَبَقِيَّةُ عَدَدِ قِسِيِّ أَبْطَالِ بَنِي قِيدَارَ تَقِلُّ، لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَ إِسْرَائِيلَ قَدْ تَكَلَّمَ». ١٧ 17
Only a few of the archers, the warriors of Kedar will remain,” for Yahweh, the God of Israel, has spoken.
