إِشَعْيَاءَ 49

اِسْمَعِي لِي أَيَّتُهَا ٱلْجَزَائِرُ، وَٱصْغَوْا أَيُّهَا ٱلْأُمَمُ مِنْ بَعِيدٍ: ٱلرَّبُّ مِنَ ٱلْبَطْنِ دَعَانِي. مِنْ أَحْشَاءِ أُمِّي ذَكَرَ ٱسْمِي، ١ 1
Listen to me, you coastlands! Now give my your attention, you distant peoples. Yahweh has called me from birth by name, when my mother brought me into the world.
وَجَعَلَ فَمِي كَسَيْفٍ حَادٍّ. فِي ظِلِّ يَدِهِ خَبَّأَنِي وَجَعَلَنِي سَهْمًا مَبْرِيًّا. فِي كِنَانَتِهِ أَخْفَانِي. ٢ 2
He has made my mouth like a sharp sword; he hid me in the shadow of his hand; he has made me into a polished arrow; in his quiver he has hidden me.
وَقَالَ لِي: «أَنْتَ عَبْدِي إِسْرَائِيلُ ٱلَّذِي بِهِ أَتَمَجَّدُ». ٣ 3
He said to me, “You are my servant, Israel, through whom I show my glory.”
أَمَّا أَنَا فَقُلْتُ: «عَبَثًا تَعِبْتُ. بَاطِلًا وَفَارِغًا أَفْنَيْتُ قُدْرَتِي. لَكِنَّ حَقِّي عِنْدَ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَعَمَلِي عِنْدَ إِلَهِي». ٤ 4
But I replied, “Though I thought I have labored in vain, I have spent my energy for nothing, yet my justice is with Yahweh, and my reward is with my God.”
وَٱلْآنَ قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ جَابِلِي مِنَ ٱلْبَطْنِ عَبْدًا لَهُ، لِإِرْجَاعِ يَعْقُوبَ إِلَيْهِ، فَيَنْضَمُّ إِلَيْهِ إِسْرَائِيلُ فَأَتَمَجَّدُ فِي عَيْنَيِ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَإِلَهِي يَصِيرُ قُوَّتِي. ٥ 5
Now Yahweh has spoken—he who formed me from birth to be his servant, to restore Jacob again to himself, so that Israel would be gathered to him, for I am honored in the eyes of Yahweh, and my God has become my strength—
فَقَالَ: «قَلِيلٌ أَنْ تَكُونَ لِي عَبْدًا لِإِقَامَةِ أَسْبَاطِ يَعْقُوبَ، وَرَدِّ مَحْفُوظِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. فَقَدْ جَعَلْتُكَ نُورًا لِلْأُمَمِ لِتَكُونَ خَلَاصِي إِلَى أَقْصَى ٱلْأَرْضِ». ٦ 6
and he says, “It is too small a thing for you to be my servant to reestablish the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the survivors of Israel. I will make you a light to the Gentiles, that you may be my salvation to the ends of the earth.”
هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ فَادِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، قُدُّوسُهُ، لِلْمُهَانِ ٱلنَّفْسِ، لِمَكْرُوهِ ٱلْأُمَّةِ، لِعَبْدِ ٱلْمُتَسَلِّطِينَ: «يَنْظُرُ مُلُوكٌ فَيَقُومُونَ. رُؤَسَاءُ فَيَسْجُدُونَ. لِأَجْلِ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّذِي هُوَ أَمِينٌ، وَقُدُّوسِ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلَّذِي قَدِ ٱخْتَارَكَ». ٧ 7
This is what Yahweh says, the Redeemer of Israel, their Holy One, to the one whose life is despised, hated by the nations, and a slave of rulers, “Kings will see you and arise, and princes will see you and bow down, because of Yahweh who is faithful, even the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you.”
هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «فِي وَقْتِ ٱلْقُبُولِ ٱسْتَجَبْتُكَ، وَفِي يَوْمِ ٱلْخَلَاصِ أَعَنْتُكَ. فَأَحْفَظُكَ وَأَجْعَلُكَ عَهْدًا لِلشَّعْبِ، لِإِقَامَةِ ٱلْأَرْضِ، لِتَمْلِيكِ أَمْلَاكِ ٱلْبَرَارِيِّ، ٨ 8
This is what Yahweh says, “At a time I decide to show my favor I will answer you, and in a day of salvation I will help you; I will protect you, and give you as a covenant for the people, to rebuild the land, to reassign the desolate inheritance.
قَائِلًا لِلْأَسْرَى: ٱخْرُجُوا. لِلَّذِينَ فِي ٱلظَّلَامِ: ٱظْهَرُوا. عَلَى ٱلطُّرُقِ يَرْعَوْنَ وَفِي كُلِّ ٱلْهِضَابِ مَرْعَاهُمْ. ٩ 9
You will say to the prisoners, 'Come out;' to those in dark dungeons, 'Show yourselves.' They will graze along the roads, and on all the bare slopes will be their pasture.
لَا يَجُوعُونَ وَلَا يَعْطَشُونَ، وَلَا يَضْرِبُهُمْ حَرٌّ وَلَا شَمْسٌ، لِأَنَّ ٱلَّذِي يَرْحَمُهُمْ يَهْدِيهِمْ وَإِلَى يَنَابِيعِ ٱلْمِيَاهِ يُورِدُهُمْ. ١٠ 10
They will not be hungry or thirsty; nor will the heat or sun beat on them, for he who has mercy on them will lead them; he will guide them to springs of water.
وَأَجْعَلُ كُلَّ جِبَالِي طَرِيقًا، وَمَنَاهِجِي تَرْتَفِعُ. ١١ 11
Then I will make all my mountains into a road, and make my highways level.”
هَؤُلَاءِ مِنْ بَعِيدٍ يَأْتُونَ، وَهَؤُلَاءِ مِنَ ٱلشَّمَالِ وَمِنَ ٱلْمَغْرِبِ، وَهَؤُلَاءِ مِنْ أَرْضِ سِينِيمَ». ١٢ 12
Look, these will come from far away, some from the north and the west; and others from the land of Sinim.
تَرَنَّمِي أَيَّتُهَا ٱلسَّمَاوَاتُ، وَٱبْتَهِجِي أَيَّتُهَا ٱلْأَرْضُ. لِتُشِدِ ٱلْجِبَالُ بِٱلتَّرَنُّمِ، لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ قَدْ عَزَّى شَعْبَهُ، وَعَلَى بَائِسِيهِ يَتَرَحَّمُ. ١٣ 13
Sing, heavens, and be joyful, earth; break into singing, you mountains! For Yahweh comforts his people, and will have compassion on his afflicted.
وَقَالَتْ صِهْيَوْنُ: «قَدْ تَرَكَنِي ٱلرَّبُّ، وَسَيِّدِي نَسِيَنِي». ١٤ 14
But Zion said, “Yahweh has forsaken me, and the Lord has forgotten me.”
«هَلْ تَنْسَى ٱلْمَرْأَةُ رَضِيعَهَا فَلَا تَرْحَمَ ٱبْنَ بَطْنِهَا؟ حَتَّى هَؤُلَاءِ يَنْسَيْنَ، وَأَنَا لَا أَنْسَاكِ. ١٥ 15
“Can a woman forget her baby, nursing at her breast, so she does not have compassion on the son she has borne? Yes, they may forget, but I will not forget you.
هُوَذَا عَلَى كَفَّيَّ نَقَشْتُكِ. أَسْوَارُكِ أَمَامِي دَائِمًا. ١٦ 16
Look, I have inscribed your name on my palms; your walls are continually before me.
قَدْ أَسْرَعَ بَنُوكِ. هَادِمُوكِ وَمُخْرِبُوكِ مِنْكِ يَخْرُجُونَ. ١٧ 17
Your children are hurrying back, while those who destroyed you are going away.
اِرْفَعِي عَيْنَيْكِ حَوَالَيْكِ وَٱنْظُرِي. كُلُّهُمْ قَدِ ٱجْتَمَعُوا، أَتَوْا إِلَيْكِ. حَيٌّ أَنَا، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، إِنَّكِ تَلْبَسِينَ كُلَّهُمْ كَحُلِيٍّ، وَتَتَنَطَّقِينَ بِهِمْ كَعَرُوسٍ. ١٨ 18
Look around and see, they are all gathering and coming to you. As surely as I live—this is Yahweh's declaration—you will surely wear them like jewelry, and you will put them on like a bride.
إِنَّ خِرَبَكِ وَبَرَارِيَّكِ وَأَرْضَ خَرَابِكِ، إِنَّكِ تَكُونِينَ ٱلْآنَ ضَيِّقَةً عَلَى ٱلسُّكَّانِ، وَيَتَبَاعَدُ مُبْتَلِعُوكِ. ١٩ 19
Though you were a waste and desolate, a land that was in ruins, now you will be too small for the inhabitants, and those who devoured you will be far away.
يَقُولُ أَيْضًا فِي أُذُنَيْكِ بَنُو ثُكْلِكِ: ضَيِّقٌ عَلَيَّ ٱلْمَكَانُ. وَسِّعِي لِي لِأَسْكُنَ. ٢٠ 20
The children born during the time of your bereavement will say in your hearing, 'The place is too cramped for us, make room for us, so we may live here.'
فَتَقُولِينَ فِي قَلْبِكِ: مَنْ وَلَدَ لِي هَؤُلَاءِ وَأَنَا ثَكْلَى، وَعَاقِرٌ مَنْفِيَّةٌ وَمَطْرُودَةٌ؟ وَهَؤُلَاءِ مَنْ رَبَّاهُمْ؟ هَأَنَذَا كُنْتُ مَتْرُوكَةً وَحْدِي. هَؤُلَاءِ أَيْنَ كَانُوا؟». ٢١ 21
Then you will ask yourself, 'Who has borne these children for me? I was bereaved and barren, exiled and divorced. Who has raised these children? Look, I was left all alone; where did these come from?'”
هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: «هَا إِنِّي أَرْفَعُ إِلَى ٱلْأُمَمِ يَدِي وَإِلَى ٱلشُّعُوبِ أُقِيمُ رَايَتِي، فَيَأْتُونَ بِأَوْلَادِكِ فِي ٱلْأَحْضَانِ، وَبَنَاتُكِ عَلَى ٱلْأَكْتَافِ يُحْمَلْنَ. ٢٢ 22
This is what the Lord Yahweh says, “Look, I will raise my hand to the nations; I will raise my signal flag to the peoples. They will bring your sons in their arms and carry your daughters on their shoulders.
وَيَكُونُ ٱلْمُلُوكُ حَاضِنِيكِ وَسَيِّدَاتُهُمْ مُرْضِعَاتِكِ. بِٱلْوُجُوهِ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ يَسْجُدُونَ لَكِ، وَيَلْحَسُونَ غُبَارَ رِجْلَيْكِ، فَتَعْلَمِينَ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلَّذِي لَا يَخْزَى مُنْتَظِرُوهُ». ٢٣ 23
Kings will be your foster fathers, and their queens your nursemaids; they will bow down to you with their faces to the earth and lick the dust of your feet; and you will know that I am Yahweh; those who wait for me will not be put to shame.”
هَلْ تُسْلَبُ مِنَ ٱلْجَبَّارِ غَنِيمَةٌ؟ وَهَلْ يُفْلِتُ سَبْيُ ٱلْمَنْصُورِ؟ ٢٤ 24
Can the spoils be taken from the warrior, or captives be rescued from the fierce?
فَإِنَّهُ هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «حَتَّى سَبْيُ ٱلْجَبَّارِ يُسْلَبُ، وَغَنِيمَةُ ٱلْعَاتِي تُفْلِتُ. وَأَنَا أُخَاصِمُ مُخَاصِمَكِ وَأُخَلِّصُ أَوْلَادَكِ، ٢٥ 25
But this is what Yahweh says, “Yes, the captives will be taken away from the warrior, and spoils will be rescued; for I will oppose your adversary and save your children.
وَأُطْعِمُ ظَالِمِيكِ لَحْمَ أَنْفُسِهِمْ، وَيَسْكَرُونَ بِدَمِهِمْ كَمَا مِنْ سُلَافٍ، فَيَعْلَمُ كُلُّ بَشَرٍ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ مُخَلِّصُكِ، وَفَادِيكِ عَزِيزُ يَعْقُوبَ». ٢٦ 26
I will feed your oppressors with their own flesh; and they will get drunk on their own blood, as if it were wine. Then all mankind will know that I, Yahweh, am your Savior and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”
