إِشَعْيَاءَ 48

«اِسْمَعُوا هَذَا يَا بَيْتَ يَعْقُوبَ، ٱلْمَدْعُوِّينَ بِٱسْمِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، ٱلَّذِينَ خَرَجُوا مِنْ مِيَاهِ يَهُوذَا، ٱلْحَالِفِينَ بِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَٱلَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ إِلَهَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، لَيْسَ بِٱلصِّدْقِ وَلَا بِٱلْحَقِّ! ١ 1
Hear this, house of Jacob, who are called by the name Israel, and have come from the sperm of Judah; you who swear by the name of Yahweh and invoke the God of Israel, but not sincerely nor in a righteous manner.
فَإِنَّهُمْ يُسَمَّوْنَ مِنْ مَدِينَةِ ٱلْقُدْسِ وَيُسْنَدُونَ إِلَى إِلَهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ. رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ ٱسْمُهُ. ٢ 2
For they call themselves people of the holy city and trust in the God of Israel. Yahweh of hosts is his name.
بِٱلْأَوَّلِيَّاتِ مُنْذُ زَمَانٍ أَخْبَرْتُ، وَمِنْ فَمِي خَرَجَتْ وَأَنْبَأْتُ بِهَا. بَغْتَةً صَنَعْتُهَا فَأَتَتْ. ٣ 3
“I have declared the things from long ago; they came out from my mouth, and I made them known; then suddenly I did them, and they came to pass.
لِمَعْرِفَتِي أَنَّكَ قَاسٍ، وَعَضَلٌ مِنْ حَدِيدٍ عُنُقُكَ، وَجَبْهَتُكَ نُحَاسٌ، ٤ 4
Because I knew that you were obstinate, your neck muscles tight as iron, and your forehead like bronze,
أَخْبَرْتُكَ مُنْذُ زَمَانٍ. قَبْلَمَا أَتَتْ أَنْبَأْتُكَ، لِئَلَّا تَقُولَ: صَنَمِي قَدْ صَنَعَهَا، وَمَنْحُوتِي وَمَسْبُوكِي أَمَرَ بِهَا. ٥ 5
therefore I declared these things to you beforehand; before they happened I informed you, so you could not say, 'My idol has done them,' or 'My carved figure and my cast metal figure has ordained these things.'
قَدْ سَمِعْتَ فَٱنْظُرْ كُلَّهَا. وَأَنْتُمْ أَلَا تُخْبِرُونَ؟ قَدْ أَنْبَأْتُكَ بِحَدِيثَاتٍ مُنْذُ ٱلْآنَ، وَبِمَخْفِيَّاتٍ لَمْ تَعْرِفْهَا. ٦ 6
You heard about these things; look at all this evidence; and you, will you not admit what I said is true? From now on, I am showing you new things, hidden things that you have not known.
ٱلْآنَ خُلِقَتْ وَلَيْسَ مُنْذُ زَمَانٍ، وَقَبْلَ ٱلْيَوْمِ لَمْ تَسْمَعْ بِهَا، لِئَلَّا تَقُولَ: هَأَنَذَا قَدْ عَرَفْتُهَا. ٧ 7
Now, and not from previously, they come into being, and before today you have not heard about them, so you will not be able to say, 'Yes, I knew about them.'
لَمْ تَسْمَعْ وَلَمْ تَعْرِفْ، وَمُنْذُ زَمَانٍ لَمْ تَنْفَتِحْ أُذُنُكَ، فَإِنِّي عَلِمْتُ أَنَّكَ تَغْدُرُ غَدْرًا، وَمِنَ ٱلْبَطْنِ سُمِّيتَ عَاصِيًا. ٨ 8
You never heard; you did not know; these things were not unfolded to your ears beforehand. For I knew that you have been very deceitful, and that you have been a rebel from birth.
مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱسْمِي أُبَطِّئُ غَضَبِي، وَمِنْ أَجْلِ فَخْرِي أُمْسِكُ عَنْكَ حَتَّى لَا أَقْطَعَكَ. ٩ 9
For the sake of my name I will defer my anger, and for my honor I will hold back from destroying you.
هَأَنَذَا قَدْ نَقَّيْتُكَ وَلَيْسَ بِفِضَّةٍ. ٱخْتَرْتُكَ فِي كُورِ ٱلْمَشَقَّةِ. ١٠ 10
Look, I refined you, but not as silver; I have purified you in the furnace of affliction.
مِنْ أَجْلِ نَفْسِي، مِنْ أَجْلِ نَفْسِي أَفْعَلُ. لِأَنَّهُ كَيْفَ يُدَنَّسُ ٱسْمِي؟ وَكَرَامَتِي لَا أُعْطِيهَا لِآخَرَ. ١١ 11
For my own sake, for my own sake I will act; for how can I allow my name to be profaned? I will not give my glory to anyone else.
«اِسْمَعْ لِي يَا يَعْقُوبُ، وَإِسْرَائِيلُ ٱلَّذِي دَعَوْتُهُ: أَنَا هُوَ. أَنَا ٱلْأَوَّلُ وَأَنَا ٱلْآخِرُ، ١٢ 12
Listen to me, Jacob, and Israel, whom I called: I am he; I am the first, I also am the last.
وَيَدِي أَسَّسَتِ ٱلْأَرْضَ، وَيَمِينِي نَشَرَتِ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ. أَنَا أَدْعُوهُنَّ فَيَقِفْنَ مَعًا. ١٣ 13
Yes, my hand laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand spread out the heavens; when I call to them, they stand up together.
اِجْتَمِعُوا كُلُّكُمْ وَٱسْمَعُوا. مَنْ مِنْهُمْ أَخْبَرَ بِهَذِهِ؟ قَدْ أَحَبَّهُ ٱلرَّبُّ. يَصْنَعُ مَسَرَّتَهُ بِبَابِلَ، وَيَكُونُ ذِرَاعُهُ عَلَى ٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ. ١٤ 14
Assemble yourselves, all of you, and listen! Who among you has announced these things? Yahweh's ally will accomplish his purpose against Babylon. He will carry out Yahweh's will against the Chaldeans.
أَنَا أَنَا تَكَلَّمْتُ وَدَعَوْتُهُ. أَتَيْتُ بِهِ فَيَنْجَحُ طَرِيقُهُ. ١٥ 15
I, I have spoken, yes, I have summoned him, I have brought him, and he will succeed.
تَقَدَّمُوا إِلَيَّ. ٱسْمَعُوا هَذَا: لَمْ أَتَكَلَّمْ مِنَ ٱلْبَدْءِ فِي ٱلْخَفَاءِ. مُنْذُ وُجُودِهِ أَنَا هُنَاكَ» وَٱلْآنَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ أَرْسَلَنِي وَرُوحُهُ. ١٦ 16
Come near to me, listen to this: From the beginning I have not spoken in secret; when it happens, I am there.” Now the Lord Yahweh has sent me, and his Spirit.
هَكَذَا يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ فَادِيكَ قُدُّوسُ إِسْرَائِيلَ: «أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ مُعَلِّمُكَ لِتَنْتَفِعَ، وَأُمَشِّيكَ فِي طَرِيقٍ تَسْلُكُ فِيهِ. ١٧ 17
This is what Yahweh, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel says, “I am Yahweh your God, who teaches you how to succeed, who leads you by the way that you should go.
لَيْتَكَ أَصْغَيْتَ لِوَصَايَايَ، فَكَانَ كَنَهْرٍ سَلَامُكَ وَبِرُّكَ كَلُجَجِ ٱلْبَحْرِ. ١٨ 18
If only you had obeyed my commandments! Then your peace and prosperity would have flowed like a river, and your salvation like the waves of the sea.
وَكَانَ كَٱلرَّمْلِ نَسْلُكَ، وَذُرِّيَّةُ أَحْشَائِكَ كَأَحْشَائِهِ. لَا يَنْقَطِعُ وَلَا يُبَادُ ٱسْمُهُ مِنْ أَمَامِي. ١٩ 19
Your descendants would have been as numerous as the sand, and the children from your womb as numerous as the grains of sand; their name would not have been cut off nor blotted out from before me.
«اُخْرُجُوا مِنْ بَابِلَ، ٱهْرُبُوا مِنْ أَرْضِ ٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ. بِصَوْتِ ٱلتَّرَنُّمِ أَخْبِرُوا. نَادُوا بِهَذَا. شَيِّعُوهُ إِلَى أَقْصَى ٱلْأَرْضِ. قُولُوا: قَدْ فَدَى ٱلرَّبُّ عَبْدَهُ يَعْقُوبَ. ٢٠ 20
Come out from Babylon! Flee from the Chaldeans! With the sound of a ringing cry announce it! Make this known, make it go out to the ends of the earth! Say, 'Yahweh has redeemed his servant Jacob.'
وَلَمْ يَعْطَشُوا فِي ٱلْقِفَارِ ٱلَّتِي سَيَّرَهُمْ فِيهَا. أَجْرَى لَهُمْ مِنَ ٱلصَّخْرِ مَاءً، وَشَقَّ ٱلصَّخْرَ فَفَاضَتِ ٱلْمِيَاهُ. ٢١ 21
They did not thirst when he led them through the deserts; he made the water to flow out of the rock for them; he split open the rock, and the waters gushed out.
لَا سَلَامَ، قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِلْأَشْرَارِ». ٢٢ 22
There is no peace for the wicked—says Yahweh.”
