إِشَعْيَاءَ 5

لَأُنْشِدَنَّ عَنْ حَبِيبِي نَشِيدَ مُحِبِّي لِكَرْمِهِ: كَانَ لِحَبِيبِي كَرْمٌ عَلَى أَكَمَةٍ خَصِبَةٍ، ١ 1
Let me sing for my well beloved, a song of my beloved about his vineyard. My well beloved had a vineyard on a very fertile hill.
فَنَقَبَهُ وَنَقَّى حِجَارَتَهُ وَغَرَسَهُ كَرْمَ سَوْرَقَ، وَبَنَى بُرْجًا فِي وَسَطِهِ، وَنَقَرَ فِيهِ أَيْضًا مِعْصَرَةً، فَٱنْتَظَرَ أَنْ يَصْنَعَ عِنَبًا فَصَنَعَ عِنَبًا رَدِيئًا. ٢ 2
He spaded it, removed the stones, and planted it with an excellent kind of vine. He built a tower in the middle of it, and also built a winepress. He waited for it to produce grapes, but it only produced wild grapes.
«وَٱلْآنَ يَا سُكَّانَ أُورُشَلِيمَ وَرِجَالَ يَهُوذَا، ٱحْكُمُوا بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَ كَرْمِي. ٣ 3
So now, inhabitant of Jerusalem and man of Judah, judge between me and my vineyard.
مَاذَا يُصْنَعُ أَيْضًا لِكَرْمِي وَأَنَا لَمْ أَصْنَعْهُ لَهُ؟ لِمَاذَا إِذِ ٱنْتَظَرْتُ أَنْ يَصْنَعَ عِنَبًا، صَنَعَ عِنَبًا رَدِيئًا؟ ٤ 4
What more could have been done for my vineyard, that I have not done for it? When I looked for it to produce grapes, why did it produce wild grapes?
فَٱلْآنَ أُعَرِّفُكُمْ مَاذَا أَصْنَعُ بِكَرْمِي: أَنْزِعُ سِيَاجَهُ فَيَصِيرُ لِلرَّعْيِ. أَهْدِمُ جُدْرَانَهُ فَيَصِيرُ لِلدَّوْسِ. ٥ 5
Now I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will remove the hedge, I will turn it into a pasture, I will break down its wall, and it will be trampled down.
وَأَجْعَلُهُ خَرَابًا لَا يُقْضَبُ وَلَا يُنْقَبُ، فَيَطْلَعُ شَوْكٌ وَحَسَكٌ. وَأُوصِي ٱلْغَيْمَ أَنْ لَا يُمْطِرَ عَلَيْهِ مَطَرًا». ٦ 6
I will lay it waste, and it will not be pruned nor hoed. Instead, briers and thorns will spring up. I will also command the clouds not to rain on it.
إِنَّ كَرْمَ رَبِّ ٱلْجُنُودِ هُوَ بَيْتُ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَغَرْسَ لَذَّتِهِ رِجَالُ يَهُوذَا. فَٱنْتَظَرَ حَقًّا فَإِذَا سَفْكُ دَمٍ، وَعَدْلًا فَإِذَا صُرَاخٌ. ٧ 7
For the vineyard of Yahweh of hosts is the house of Israel, and the man of Judah his pleasant planting; he waited for justice, but instead, there was killing; for righteousness, but, instead, a shout for help.
وَيْلٌ لِلَّذِينَ يَصِلُونَ بَيْتًا بِبَيْتٍ، وَيَقْرِنُونَ حَقْلًا بِحَقْلٍ، حَتَّى لَمْ يَبْقَ مَوْضِعٌ. فَصِرْتُمْ تَسْكُنُونَ وَحْدَكُمْ فِي وَسَطِ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٨ 8
Woe to those who join house to house, who join field to field, until no room remains, and you alone remain in the land!
فِي أُذُنَيَّ قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ: «أَلَا إِنَّ بُيُوتًا كَثِيرَةً تَصِيرُ خَرَابًا. بُيُوتًا كَبِيرَةً وَحَسَنَةً بِلَا سَاكِنٍ. ٩ 9
Yahweh of hosts told me, many houses will be empty, even great and impressive ones, without any inhabitant.
لِأَنَّ عَشْرَةَ فَدَادِينِ كَرْمٍ تَصْنَعُ بَثًّا وَاحِدًا، وَحُومَرَ بِذَارٍ يَصْنَعُ إِيفَةً». ١٠ 10
For a ten-yoke vineyard will yield only one bath, and one homer of seed will yield only an ephah.
وَيْلٌ لِلْمُبَكِّرِينَ صَبَاحًا يَتْبَعُونَ ٱلْمُسْكِرَ، لِلْمُتَأَخِّرِينَ فِي ٱلْعَتَمَةِ تُلْهِبُهُمُ ٱلْخَمْرُ. ١١ 11
Woe to those who rise up early in the morning to obtain strong drink, those who linger late into the night until wine inflames them.
وَصَارَ ٱلْعُودُ وَٱلرَّبَابُ وَٱلدُّفُّ وَٱلنَّايُ وَٱلْخَمْرُ وَلَائِمَهُمْ، وَإِلَى فَعْلِ ٱلرَّبِّ لَا يَنْظُرُونَ، وَعَمَلَ يَدَيْهِ لَا يَرَوْنَ. ١٢ 12
They banquet with harp, lute, tambourine, flute, and wine, but they do not recognize the work of Yahweh, nor have they considered the doings of his hands.
لِذَلِكَ سُبِيَ شَعْبِي لِعَدَمِ ٱلْمَعْرِفَةِ، وَتَصِيرُ شُرَفَاؤُهُ رِجَالَ جُوعٍ، وَعَامَّتُهُ يَابِسِينَ مِنَ ٱلْعَطَشِ. ١٣ 13
Therefore my people have gone into captivity for lack of understanding; their honored leaders go hungry, and their common people have nothing to drink.
لِذَلِكَ وَسَّعَتِ ٱلْهَاوِيَةُ نَفْسَهَا، وَفَغَرَتْ فَاهَا بِلَا حَدٍّ، فَيَنْزِلُ بَهَاؤُهَا وَجُمْهُورُهَا وَضَجِيجُهَا وَٱلْمُبْتَهِجُ فِيهَا! (Sheol h7585) ١٤ 14
Therefore Sheol has made its appetite greater and has opened its mouth very wide; their elite, the people, their leaders, and the revelers and those who are happy among them, descend into Sheol. (Sheol h7585)
وَيُذَلُّ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ وَيُحَطُّ ٱلرَّجُلُ، وَعُيُونُ ٱلْمُسْتَعْلِينَ تُوضَعُ. ١٥ 15
Man will be forced to bend down, and mankind will be humbled; the eyes of the lofty will be cast down.
وَيَتَعَالَى رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ بِٱلْعَدْلِ، وَيَتَقَدَّسُ ٱلإِلَهُ ٱلْقُدُّوسُ بِٱلْبِرِّ. ١٦ 16
Yahweh of hosts will be exalted in his justice, and God the Holy One will show himself holy by his righteousness.
وَتَرْعَى ٱلْخِرْفَانُ حَيْثُمَا تُسَاقُ، وَخِرَبُ ٱلسِّمَانِ تَأْكُلُهَا ٱلْغُرَبَاءُ. ١٧ 17
Then the sheep will feed as in their own pasture, and in the ruins, lambs will graze as foreigners.
وَيْلٌ لِلْجَاذِبِينَ ٱلْإِثْمَ بِحِبَالِ ٱلْبُطْلِ، وَٱلْخَطِيَّةَ كَأَنَّهُ بِرُبُطِ ٱلْعَجَلَةِ، ١٨ 18
Woe to those who pull along iniquity with useless cords and who pull along sin as if it were with a cart rope.
ٱلْقَائِلِينَ: «لِيُسْرِعْ، لِيُعَجِّلْ عَمَلَهُ لِكَيْ نَرَى، وَلْيَقْرُبْ وَيَأْتِ مَقْصَدُ قُدُّوسِ إِسْرَائِيلَ لِنَعْلَمَ». ١٩ 19
Woe to those who say, “Let God hurry, let him act quickly, so we can see it happen; and let the plans of the Holy One of Israel come, so that we may know them.”
وَيْلٌ لِلْقَائِلِينَ لِلشَّرِّ خَيْرًا وَلِلْخَيْرِ شَرًّا، ٱلْجَاعِلِينَ ٱلظَّلَامَ نُورًا وَٱلنُّورَ ظَلَامًا، ٱلْجَاعِلِينَ ٱلْمُرَّ حُلْوًا وَٱلْحُلْوَ مُرًّا. ٢٠ 20
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who represent darkness as light, and light as darkness; who represent bitter as sweet, and sweet as bitter!
وَيْلٌ لِلْحُكَمَاءِ فِي أَعْيُنِ أَنْفُسِهِمْ، وَٱلْفُهَمَاءِ عِنْدَ ذَوَاتِهِمْ. ٢١ 21
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own understanding!
وَيْلٌ لِلْأَبْطَالِ عَلَى شُرْبِ ٱلْخَمْرِ، وَلِذَوِي ٱلْقُدْرَةِ عَلَى مَزْجِ ٱلْمُسْكِرِ. ٢٢ 22
Woe to those who are champions at drinking wine, and masters at mixing strong drinks;
ٱلَّذِينَ يُبَرِّرُونَ ٱلشِّرِّيرَ مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱلرُّشْوَةِ، وَأَمَّا حَقُّ ٱلصِّدِّيقِينَ فَيَنْزِعُونَهُ مِنْهُمْ. ٢٣ 23
who acquit the wicked for payment, and deprive the innocent of his rights!
لِذَلِكَ كَمَا يَأْكُلُ لَهِيبُ ٱلنَّارِ ٱلْقَشَّ، وَيَهْبِطُ ٱلْحَشِيشُ ٱلْمُلْتَهِبُ، يَكُونُ أَصْلُهُمْ كَٱلْعُفُونَةِ، وَيَصْعَدُ زَهْرُهُمْ كَٱلْغُبَارِ، لِأَنَّهُمْ رَذَلُوا شَرِيعَةَ رَبِّ ٱلْجُنُودِ، وَٱسْتَهَانُوا بِكَلَامِ قُدُّوسِ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٢٤ 24
Therefore as the tongue of fire devours stubble, and as the dry grass goes down in flame, so their root will rot, and their blossom will blow away like dust. This will happen because they have rejected the law of Yahweh of hosts, and because they have despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
مِنْ أَجْلِ ذَلِكَ حَمِيَ غَضَبُ ٱلرَّبِّ عَلَى شَعْبِهِ، وَمَدَّ يَدَهُ عَلَيْهِ وَضَرَبَهُ، حَتَّى ٱرْتَعَدَتِ ٱلْجِبَالُ وَصَارَتْ جُثَثُهُمْ كَٱلزِّبْلِ فِي ٱلْأَزِقَّةِ. مَعَ كُلِّ هَذَا لَمْ يَرْتَدَّ غَضَبُهُ، بَلْ يَدُهُ مَمْدُودَةٌ بَعْدُ. ٢٥ 25
Therefore the anger of Yahweh is kindled against his people. He has reached out with his hand against them and has punished them. The mountains tremble, and their corpses are like garbage in the streets. In all these things, his anger does not subside; instead, his hand is still stretched out.
فَيَرْفَعُ رَايَةً لِلْأُمَمِ مِنْ بَعِيدٍ، وَيَصْفِرُ لَهُمْ مِنْ أَقْصَى ٱلْأَرْضِ، فَإِذَا هُمْ بِٱلْعَجَلَةِ يَأْتُونَ سَرِيعًا. ٢٦ 26
He will lift up a signal flag for far away nations and will whistle for those at the end of the earth. Look, they will come speedily and promptly.
لَيْسَ فِيهِمْ رَازِحٌ وَلَا عَاثِرٌ. لَا يَنْعَسُونَ وَلَا يَنَامُونَ، وَلَا تَنْحَلُّ حُزُمُ أَحْقَائِهِمْ، وَلَا تَنْقَطِعُ سُيُورُ أَحْذِيَتِهِمْ. ٢٧ 27
None tire or stumble among them; none slumbers or sleeps. Nor are their belts loose, or the thongs of their sandals broken.
ٱلَّذِينَ سِهَامُهُمْ مَسْنُونَةٌ، وَجَمِيعُ قِسِيِّهِمْ مَمْدُودَةٌ. حَوَافِرُ خَيْلِهِمْ تُحْسَبُ كَٱلصَّوَّانِ، وَبَكَرَاتُهُمْ كَٱلزَّوْبَعَةِ. ٢٨ 28
Their arrows are sharp and all their bows are bent; their horses' hooves are like flint, and their chariot wheels like storms.
لَهُمْ زَمْجَرَةٌ كَٱللَّبْوَةِ، وَيُزَمْجِرُونَ كَٱلشِّبْلِ، وَيَهِرُّونَ وَيُمْسِكُونَ ٱلْفَرِيسَةَ وَيَسْتَخْلِصُونَهَا وَلَا مُنْقِذَ. ٢٩ 29
Their roaring will be like a lion; they will roar like young lions. They will growl and seize the prey and drag it away, with none to rescue.
يَهِرُّونَ عَلَيْهِمْ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ كَهَدِيرِ ٱلْبَحْرِ. فَإِنْ نُظِرَ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ فَهُوَذَا ظَلَامُ ٱلضِّيقِ، وَٱلنُّورُ قَدْ أَظْلَمَ بِسُحُبِهَا. ٣٠ 30
On that day they will roar against the prey as the sea roars. If anyone looks over the land, he will see darkness and suffering; even the light will be made dark by the clouds.
