إِشَعْيَاءَ 3

فَإِنَّهُ هُوَذَا ٱلسَّيِّدُ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ يَنْزِعُ مِنْ أُورُشَلِيمَ وَمِنْ يَهُوذَا ٱلسَّنَدَ وَٱلرُّكْنَ، كُلَّ سَنَدِ خُبْزٍ، وَكُلَّ سَنَدِ مَاءٍ. ١ 1
See, the Lord Yahweh of hosts is about to take away from Jerusalem and from Judah support and staff: the whole supply of bread and the whole supply of water,
ٱلْجَبَّارَ وَرَجُلَ ٱلْحَرْبِ. ٱلْقَاضِيَ وَٱلنَّبِيَّ وَٱلْعَرَّافَ وَٱلشَّيْخَ. ٢ 2
the mighty man and the warrior, the judge and the prophet, the one who practices divination and the elder,
رَئِيسَ ٱلْخَمْسِينَ وَٱلْمُعْتَبَرَ وَٱلْمُشِيرَ، وَٱلْمَاهِرَ بَيْنَ ٱلصُّنَّاعِ، وَٱلْحَاذِقَ بِٱلرُّقْيَةِ. ٣ 3
the captain of fifty and the respected citizen, the counselor, the expert craftsman and the skillful enchanter.
وَأَجْعَلُ صُبْيَانًا رُؤَسَاءَ لَهُمْ، وَأَطْفَالًا تَتَسَلَّطُ عَلَيْهِمْ. ٤ 4
“I will place mere youths as their leaders, and the young will rule over them.
وَيَظْلِمُ ٱلشَّعْبُ بَعْضُهُمْ بَعْضًا، وَٱلرَّجُلُ صَاحِبَهُ. يَتَمَرَّدُ ٱلصَّبِيُّ عَلَى ٱلشَّيْخِ، وَٱلدَّنِيءُ عَلَى ٱلشَّرِيفِ. ٥ 5
The people will be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbor; the child will insult the elderly, and the degraded will challenge the honorable.
إِذَا أَمْسَكَ إِنْسَانٌ بِأَخِيهِ فِي بَيْتِ أَبِيهِ قَائِلًا: «لَكَ ثَوْبٌ فَتَكُونُ لَنَا رَئِيسًا، وَهَذَا ٱلْخَرَابُ تَحْتَ يَدِكَ» ٦ 6
A man will even take hold of his brother in his father's house and say, 'You have a coat; be our ruler, and let this ruin be in your hands.'
يَرْفَعُ صَوْتَهُ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ قَائِلًا: «لَا أَكُونُ عَاصِبًا وَفِي بَيْتِي لَا خُبْزَ وَلَا ثَوْبَ. لَا تَجْعَلُونِي رَئِيسَ ٱلشَّعْبِ». ٧ 7
On that day he will shout and say, 'I will not be a healer; I have no bread or clothing. You will not make me ruler of the people.'”
لِأَنَّ أُورُشَلِيمَ عَثَرَتْ، وَيَهُوذَا سَقَطَتْ، لِأَنَّ لِسَانَهُمَا وَأَفْعَالَهُمَا ضِدَّ ٱلرَّبِّ لِإِغَاظَةِ عَيْنَيْ مَجْدِهِ. ٨ 8
For Jerusalem has stumbled, and Judah has fallen, because their speech and their actions are against Yahweh, defying the eyes of his glory.
نَظَرُ وُجُوهِهِمْ يَشْهَدُ عَلَيْهِمْ، وَهُمْ يُخْبِرُونَ بِخَطِيَّتِهِمْ كَسَدُومَ. لَا يُخْفُونَهَا. وَيْلٌ لِنُفُوسِهِمْ لِأَنَّهُمْ يَصْنَعُونَ لِأَنْفُسِهِمْ شَرًّا. ٩ 9
The look on their faces witnesses against them; and they tell of their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! For they have completed a catastrophe for themselves.
قُولُوا لِلصِّدِّيقِ خَيْرٌ! لِأَنَّهُمْ يَأْكُلُونَ ثَمَرَ أَفْعَالِهِمْ. ١٠ 10
Tell the righteous person that it will be well, for they will eat the fruit of their deeds.
وَيْلٌ لِلشِّرِّيرِ. شَرٌّ! لِأَنَّ مُجَازَاةَ يَدَيْهِ تُعْمَلُ بِهِ. ١١ 11
Woe to the wicked! It will go badly for him, for the recompense of his hands will be done to him.
شَعْبِي ظَالِمُوهُ أَوْلَادٌ، وَنِسَاءٌ يَتَسَلَّطْنَ عَلَيْهِ. يَا شَعْبِي، مُرْشِدُوكَ مُضِلُّونَ، وَيَبْلَعُونَ طَرِيقَ مَسَالِكِكَ. ١٢ 12
My people—children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. My people, those who guide you lead you astray and confuse the direction of your path.
قَدِ ٱنْتَصَبَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِلْمُخَاصَمَةِ، وَهُوَ قَائِمٌ لِدَيْنُونَةِ ٱلشُّعُوبِ. ١٣ 13
Yahweh stands up for an accusation; he is standing to accuse the people.
اَلرَّبُّ يَدْخُلُ فِي ٱلْمُحَاكَمَةِ مَعَ شُيُوخِ شَعْبِهِ وَرُؤَسَائِهِمْ: «وَأَنْتُمْ قَدْ أَكَلْتُمُ ٱلْكَرْمَ. سَلَبُ ٱلْبَائِسِ فِي بُيُوتِكُمْ. ١٤ 14
Yahweh will come with judgment against the elders of his people and their leaders: “You have ruined the vineyard; the plunder from the poor is in your houses.
مَا لَكُمْ تَسْحَقُونَ شَعْبِي، وَتَطْحَنُونَ وُجُوهَ ٱلْبَائِسِينَ؟ يَقُولُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ». ١٥ 15
Why do you crush my people and grind the faces of the poor?” This is the declaration of the Lord Yahweh of hosts.
وَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّ بَنَاتِ صِهْيَوْنَ يَتَشَامَخْنَ، وَيَمْشِينَ مَمْدُودَاتِ ٱلْأَعْنَاقِ، وَغَامِزَاتٍ بِعُيُونِهِنَّ، وَخَاطِرَاتٍ فِي مَشْيِهِنَّ، وَيُخَشْخِشْنَ بِأَرْجُلِهِنَّ، ١٦ 16
Yahweh says that because the daughters of Zion are proud, they walk with their necks extended, with flirting eyes, walking with tiny steps as they go, making tinkling sounds from bracelets on their ankles.
يُصْلِعُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ هَامَةَ بَنَاتِ صِهْيَوْنَ، وَيُعَرِّي ٱلرَّبُّ عَوْرَتَهُنَّ. ١٧ 17
Therefore the Lord will form scabs on the heads of the daughters of Zion, and Yahweh will make them bald.
يَنْزِعُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ زِينَةَ ٱلْخَلَاخِيلِ وَٱلضَّفَائِرِ وَٱلْأَهِلَّةِ، ١٨ 18
On that day the Lord will remove their beautiful ankle jewelry, head bands, the crescent ornaments,
وَٱلْحَلَقِ وَٱلْأَسَاوِرِ وَٱلْبَرَاقِعِ ١٩ 19
the ear pendants, the bracelets, and the veils;
وَٱلْعَصَائِبِ وَٱلسَّلَاسِلِ وَٱلْمَنَاطِقِ وَحَنَاجِرِ ٱلشَّمَّامَاتِ وَٱلْأَحْرَازِ، ٢٠ 20
the headscarves, the ankle chains, the sashes, and the perfume boxes, and the lucky charms.
وَٱلْخَوَاتِمِ وَخَزَائِمِ ٱلْأَنْفِ، ٢١ 21
He will remove the rings and the nose jewels;
وَٱلثِّيَابِ ٱلْمُزَخْرَفَةِ وَٱلْعُطْفِ وَٱلْأَرْدِيَةِ وَٱلْأَكْيَاسِ، ٢٢ 22
the festive robes, the mantles, the veils, and the handbags;
وَٱلْمَرَائِي وَٱلْقُمْصَانِ وَٱلْعَمَائِمِ وَٱلْأُزُرِ. ٢٣ 23
the hand mirrors, the fine linen, the head pieces, and the wraps.
فَيَكُونُ عِوَضَ ٱلطِّيبِ عُفُونَةٌ، وَعِوَضَ ٱلْمِنْطَقَةِ حَبْلٌ، وَعِوَضَ ٱلْجَدَائِلِ قَرْعَةٌ، وَعِوَضَ ٱلدِّيبَاجِ زُنَّارُ مِسْحٍ، وَعِوَضَ ٱلْجَمَالِ كَيٌّ! ٢٤ 24
Instead of sweet perfume there will be stench; and instead of a sash, a rope; instead of well-arranged hair, baldness; and instead of a robe, a covering of sackcloth; and branding instead of beauty.
رِجَالُكِ يَسْقُطُونَ بِٱلسَّيْفِ، وَأَبْطَالُكِ فِي ٱلْحَرْبِ. ٢٥ 25
Your men will fall by the sword, and your strong men will fall in war.
فَتَئِنُّ وَتَنُوحُ أَبْوَابُهَا، وَهِيَ فَارِغَةً تَجْلِسُ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٢٦ 26
Jerusalem's gates will lament and mourn; and she will be alone and sit upon the ground.
