إِشَعْيَاءَ 28

وَيْلٌ لِإِكْلِيلِ فَخْرِ سُكَارَى أَفْرَايِمَ، وَلِلزَّهْرِ ٱلذَّابِلِ، جَمَالِ بَهَائِهِ ٱلَّذِي عَلَى رَأْسِ وَادِي سَمَائِنِ، ٱلْمَضْرُوبِينَ بِٱلْخَمْرِ. ١ 1
Woe to the proud garland crown that is worn by each of the drunkards of Ephraim, and to the fading flower of its glorious beauty, the garland that is set on the head of the lush Valley of those who are overcome with wine!
هُوَذَا شَدِيدٌ وَقَوِيٌّ لِلسَّيِّدِ كَٱنْهِيَالِ ٱلْبَرَدِ، كَنَوْءٍ مُهْلِكٍ، كَسَيْلِ مِيَاهٍ غَزِيرَةٍ جَارِفَةٍ، قَدْ أَلْقَاهُ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ بِشِدَّةٍ. ٢ 2
Behold, the Lord sends one who is mighty and strong; like a storm of hail and a destructive windstorm, like a driving rain and overflowing waters; and he will throw each garland crown down to the ground.
بِٱلْأَرْجُلِ يُدَاسُ إِكْلِيلُ فَخْرِ سُكَارَى أَفْرَايِمَ. ٣ 3
The proud garland of the drunkards of Ephraim will be trodden underfoot.
وَيَكُونُ ٱلزَّهْرُ ٱلذَّابِلُ، جَمَالُ بَهَائِهِ ٱلَّذِي عَلَى رَأْسِ وَادِي ٱلسَّمَائِنِ كَبَاكُورَةِ ٱلتِّينِ قَبْلَ ٱلصَّيْفِ، ٱلَّتِي يَرَاهَا ٱلنَّاظِرُ فَيَبْلَعُهَا وَهِيَ فِي يَدِهِ. ٤ 4
The fading flower of his glorious beauty, that is on the head of the rich valley, will be as the first ripe fig before the summer, that, when someone sees it, while it is yet in his hand, he gulps it down.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ يَكُونُ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ إِكْلِيلَ جَمَالٍ وَتَاجَ بَهَاءٍ لِبَقِيَّةِ شَعْبِهِ، ٥ 5
In that day Yahweh of hosts will become a beautiful crown and a diadem of beauty for the remainder of his people,
وَرُوحَ ٱلْقَضَاءِ لِلْجَالِسِ لِلْقَضَاءِ، وَبَأْسًا لِلَّذِينَ يَرُدُّونَ ٱلْحَرْبَ إِلَى ٱلْبَابِ. ٦ 6
a spirit of justice for him who sits in judgment, and strength for those who turn back their enemies at their gates.
وَلَكِنَّ هَؤُلَاءِ أَيْضًا ضَلُّوا بِٱلْخَمْرِ وَتَاهُوا بِٱلْمُسْكِرِ. ٱلْكَاهِنُ وَٱلنَّبِيُّ تَرَنَّحَا بِٱلْمُسْكِرِ. ٱبْتَلَعَتْهُمَا ٱلْخَمْرُ. تَاهَا مِنَ ٱلْمُسْكِرِ، ضَلَّا فِي ٱلرُّؤْيَا، قَلِقَا فِي ٱلْقَضَاءِ. ٧ 7
But even these reel with wine, and stagger with strong drink. The priest and the prophet reel with strong drink, and they are swallowed up by wine. They stagger with strong drink, staggering in vision and reeling in decision.
فَإِنَّ جَمِيعَ ٱلْمَوَائِدِ ٱمْتَلَأَتْ قَيْئًا وَقَذَرًا. لَيْسَ مَكَانٌ. ٨ 8
Truly, all tables are covered with vomit, so that there is no clean place.
«لِمَنْ يُعَلِّمُ مَعْرِفَةً، وَلِمَنْ يُفْهِمُ تَعْلِيمًا؟ أَلِلْمَفْطُومِينَ عَنِ ٱللَّبَنِ، لِلْمَفْصُولِينَ عَنِ ٱلثُّدِيِّ؟ ٩ 9
To whom will he teach knowledge, and to whom will he explain the message? To those who are weaned from milk or to those just taken from the breasts?
لِأَنَّهُ أَمْرٌ عَلَى أَمْرٍ. أَمْرٌ عَلَى أَمْرٍ. فَرْضٌ عَلَى فَرْضٍ. فَرْضٌ عَلَى فَرْضٍ. هُنَا قَلِيلٌ هُنَاكَ قَلِيلٌ». ١٠ 10
For it is command upon command, command upon command; rule upon rule, rule upon rule; here a little, there a little.
إِنَّهُ بِشَفَةٍ لَكْنَاءَ وَبِلِسَانٍ آخَرَ يُكَلِّمُ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبَ، ١١ 11
Indeed, with mocking lips and a foreign tongue he will speak to this people.
ٱلَّذِينَ قَالَ لَهُمْ: «هَذِهِ هِيَ ٱلرَّاحَةُ. أَرِيحُوا ٱلرَّازِحَ، وَهَذَا هُوَ ٱلسُّكُونُ». وَلَكِنْ لَمْ يَشَاءُوا أَنْ يَسْمَعُوا. ١٢ 12
In the past he said to them “This is the rest, give rest to him who is weary; and this is the refreshing,” but they would not listen.
فَكَانَ لَهُمْ قَوْلُ ٱلرَّبِّ: أَمْرًا عَلَى أَمْرٍ. أَمْرًا عَلَى أَمْرٍ. فَرْضًا عَلَى فَرْضٍ. فَرْضًا عَلَى فَرْضٍ. هُنَا قَلِيلًا هُنَاكَ قَلِيلًا، لِكَيْ يَذْهَبُوا وَيَسْقُطُوا إِلَى ٱلْوَرَاءِ وَيَنْكَسِرُوا وَيُصَادُوا فَيُؤْخَذُوا. ١٣ 13
So the word of Yahweh will be to them command upon command, command upon command; rule upon rule, rule upon rule; here a little, there a little; so that they may go and fall backward, and be broken, ensnared, and captured.
لِذَلِكَ ٱسْمَعُوا كَلَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ يَارِجَالَ ٱلْهُزْءِ، وُلَاةَ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبِ ٱلَّذِي فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ. ١٤ 14
So listen to the word of Yahweh, you who mock, you who rule over this people who are in Jerusalem.
لِأَنَّكُمْ قُلْتُمْ: «قَدْ عَقَدْنَا عَهْدًا مَعَ ٱلْمَوْتِ، وَصَنَعْنَا مِيثَاقًا مَعَ ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ. ٱلسَّوْطُ ٱلْجَارِفُ إِذَا عَبَرَ لَا يَأْتِينَا، لِأَنَّنَا جَعَلْنَا ٱلْكَذِبَ مَلْجَأَنَا، وَبِٱلْغِشِّ ٱسْتَتَرْنَا». (Sheol h7585) ١٥ 15
This will happen because you said, “We have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol we have reached an agreement. So when the overwhelming whip passes through, it will not reach us. For we have made a lie our refuge, and taken shelter in falsehood.” (Sheol h7585)
لِذَلِكَ هَكَذَا يَقُولُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: «هَأَنَذَا أُؤَسِّسُ فِي صِهْيَوْنَ حَجَرًا، حَجَرَ ٱمْتِحَانٍ، حَجَرَ زَاوِيَةٍ كَرِيمًا، أَسَاسًا مُؤَسَّسًا: مَنْ آمَنَ لَا يَهْرُبُ. ١٦ 16
Therefore the Lord Yahweh says, “See, I will lay in Zion a foundation stone, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation. He who believes will not be ashamed.
وَأَجْعَلُ ٱلْحَقَّ خَيْطًا وَٱلْعَدْلَ مِطْمَارًا، فَيَخْطَفُ ٱلْبَرَدُ مَلْجَأَ ٱلْكَذِبِ، وَيَجْرُفُ ٱلْمَاءُ ٱلسِّتَارَةَ. ١٧ 17
I will make justice the measuring stick, and righteousness the plumbline. Hail will sweep away the refuge of lies, and the floodwaters will overwhelm the hiding place.
وَيُمْحَى عَهْدُكُمْ مَعَ ٱلْمَوْتِ، وَلَا يَثْبُتُ مِيثَاقُكُمْ مَعَ ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ. ٱلسَّوْطُ ٱلْجَارِفُ إِذَا عَبَرَ تَكُونُونَ لَهُ لِلدَّوْسِ. (Sheol h7585) ١٨ 18
Your covenant with death will be dissolved, and your agreement with Sheol will not stand. When the raging flood passes through, you will be overwhelmed by it. (Sheol h7585)
كُلَّمَا عَبَرَ يَأْخُذُكُمْ، فَإِنَّهُ كُلَّ صَبَاحٍ يَعْبُرُ، فِي ٱلنَّهَارِ وَفِي ٱللَّيْلِ، وَيَكُونُ فَهْمُ ٱلْخَبَرِ فَقَطِ ٱنْزِعَاجًا». ١٩ 19
Whenever it passes through, it will overwhelm you, and morning by morning it will pass through and by day and night it will come. When the message is understood, it will cause terror.
لِأَنَّ ٱلْفِرَاشَ قَدْ قَصَرَ عَنِ ٱلتَّمَدُّدِ، وَٱلْغِطَاءَ ضَاقَ عَنِ ٱلِٱلْتِحَافِ. ٢٠ 20
For the bed is too short for a man to stretch out on, and the blanket too narrow for him to wrap himself in.”
لِأَنَّهُ كَمَا فِي جَبَلِ فَرَاصِيمَ يَقُومُ ٱلرَّبُّ، وَكَمَا فِي ٱلْوَطَاءِ عِنْدَ جِبْعُونَ يَسْخَطُ لِيَفْعَلَ فَعْلَهُ، فَعْلَهُ ٱلْغَرِيبَ، وَلِيَعْمَلَ عَمَلَهُ، عَمَلَهُ ٱلْغَرِيبَ. ٢١ 21
Yahweh will rise up as on Mount Perazim; he will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon to do his work, his strange work, and perform his strange deed.
فَٱلْآنَ لَا تَكُونُوا مُتَهَكِّمِينَ لِئَلَّا تُشَدَّدَ رُبُطُكُمْ، لِأَنِّي سَمِعْتُ فَنَاءً قُضِيَ بِهِ مِنْ قِبَلِ ٱلسَّيِّدِ رَبِّ ٱلْجُنُودِ عَلَى كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٢٢ 22
Now therefore do not mock, or your bonds will be tightened. I have heard from the Lord Yahweh of hosts, a decree of destruction on the earth.
اُصْغُوا وَٱسْمَعُوا صَوْتِي. ٱنْصُتُوا وَٱسْمَعُوا قَوْلِي: ٢٣ 23
Pay attention and listen to my voice; be attentive and listen to my words.
هَلْ يَحْرُثُ ٱلْحَارِثُ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ لِيَزْرَعَ، وَيَشُقُّ أَرْضَهُ وَيُمَهِّدُهَا؟ ٢٤ 24
Does a farmer who plows all day to sow, only plow the ground? Does he continually break up and harrow the field?
أَلَيْسَ أَنَّهُ إِذَا سَوَّى وَجْهَهَا يَبْذُرُ ٱلشُّونِيزَ وَيُذَرِّي ٱلْكَمُّونَ، وَيَضَعُ ٱلْحِنْطَةَ فِي أَتْلَامٍ، وَٱلشَّعِيرَ فِي مَكَانٍ مُعَيَّنٍ، وَٱلْقَطَانِيَّ فِي حُدُودِهَا؟ ٢٥ 25
When he has prepared the ground, does he not scatter caraway seed, sow the cumin, put in the wheat in rows and the barley in the right place, and the spelt at its edges?
فَيُرْشِدُهُ. بِٱلْحَقِّ يُعَلِّمُهُ إِلَهُهُ. ٢٦ 26
His God instructs him; he teaches him wisely.
إِنَّ ٱلشُّونِيزَ لَا يُدْرَسُ بِٱلنَّوْرَجِ، وَلَا تُدَارُ بَكَرَةُ ٱلْعَجَلَةِ عَلَى ٱلْكَمُّونِ، بَلْ بِٱلْقَضِيبِ يُخْبَطُ ٱلشُّونِيزُ، وَٱلْكَمُّونُ بِٱلْعَصَا. ٢٧ 27
Moreover, the caraway seed is not threshed with a sledge, nor is a cartwheel rolled over the cumin; but caraway is beaten with a stick, and cumin with a rod.
يُدَقُّ ٱلْقَمْحُ لِأَنَّهُ لَا يَدْرُسُهُ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ، فَيَسُوقُ بَكَرَةَ عَجَلَتِهِ وَخَيْلَهُ. لَا يَسْحَقُهُ. ٢٨ 28
Grain is ground for bread but not too finely, and though the wheels of his cart and his horses scatter it, his horses do not crush it.
هَذَا أَيْضًا خَرَجَ مِنْ قِبَلِ رَبِّ ٱلْجُنُودِ. عَجِيبُ ٱلرَّأْيِ عَظِيمُ ٱلْفَهْمِ. ٢٩ 29
This too comes from Yahweh of hosts, who is wonderful in instruction and excellent in wisdom.
