إِشَعْيَاءَ 54

«تَرَنَّمِي أَيَّتُهَا ٱلْعَاقِرُ ٱلَّتِي لَمْ تَلِدْ. أَشِيدِي بِٱلتَّرَنُّمِ أَيَّتُهَا ٱلَّتِي لَمْ تَمْخَضْ، لِأَنَّ بَنِي ٱلْمُسْتَوْحِشَةِ أَكْثَرُ مِنْ بَنِي ذَاتِ ٱلْبَعْلِ، قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ. ١ 1
“Sing, you barren woman, you who have not given birth; break into joyful singing and cry aloud, you who have never been in birth labor. For the children of the desolate one are more than the children of the married woman,” says Yahweh.
أَوْسِعِي مَكَانَ خَيْمَتِكِ، وَلْتُبْسَطْ شُقَقُ مَسَاكِنِكِ. لَا تُمْسِكِي. أَطِيلِي أَطْنَابَكِ وَشَدِّدِي أَوْتَادَكِ، ٢ 2
“Make your tent larger and spread your tent curtains farther out, unsparingly; lengthen your ropes and strengthen your stakes.
لِأَنَّكِ تَمْتَدِّينَ إِلَى ٱلْيَمِينِ وَإِلَى ٱلْيَسَارِ، وَيَرِثُ نَسْلُكِ أُمَمًا، وَيُعْمِرُ مُدُنًا خَرِبَةً. ٣ 3
For you will spread out to the right hand and to the left, and your descendants will conquer nations and resettle desolate cities.
لَا تَخَافِي لِأَنَّكِ لَا تَخْزَيْنَ، وَلَا تَخْجَلِي لِأَنَّكِ لَا تَسْتَحِينَ. فَإِنَّكِ تَنْسَيْنَ خِزْيَ صَبَاكِ، وَعَارُ تَرَمُّلِكِ لَا تَذْكُرِينَهُ بَعْدُ. ٤ 4
Do not fear for you will not be ashamed, nor be discouraged for you will not be disgraced; you will forget the shame of your youth and the disgrace of your abandonment.
لِأَنَّ بَعْلَكِ هُوَ صَانِعُكِ، رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ ٱسْمُهُ، وَوَلِيُّكِ قُدُّوسُ إِسْرَائِيلَ، إِلَهَ كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ يُدْعَى. ٥ 5
For your Maker is your husband; Yahweh of hosts is his name. The Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of the whole earth.
لِأَنَّهُ كَٱمْرَأَةٍ مَهْجُورَةٍ وَمَحْزُونَةِ ٱلرُّوحِ دَعَاكِ ٱلرَّبُّ، وَكَزَوْجَةِ ٱلصِّبَا إِذَا رُذِلَتْ، قَالَ إِلَهُكِ. ٦ 6
For Yahweh has called you back as a wife abandoned and grieved in spirit, like a woman married young and rejected,” says your God.
لُحَيْظَةً تَرَكْتُكِ، وَبِمَرَاحِمَ عَظِيمَةٍ سَأَجْمَعُكِ. ٧ 7
“For a short time I abandoned you, but with great compassion I will gather you.
بِفَيَضَانِ ٱلْغَضَبِ حَجَبْتُ وَجْهِي عَنْكِ لَحْظَةً، وَبِإِحْسَانٍ أَبَدِيٍّ أَرْحَمُكِ، قَالَ وَلِيُّكِ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٨ 8
In a flood of anger I hid my face from you momentarily; but with everlasting covenant faithfulness I will have mercy on you— says Yahweh, the one who rescues you.
لِأَنَّهُ كَمِيَاهِ نُوحٍ هَذِهِ لِي. كَمَا حَلَفْتُ أَنْ لَا تَعْبُرَ بَعْدُ مِيَاهُ نُوحٍ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ، هَكَذَا حَلَفْتُ أَنْ لَا أَغْضَبَ عَلَيْكِ وَلَا أَزْجُرَكِ. ٩ 9
For this is like the waters of Noah to me: as I swore that the waters of Noah would never again pass over the earth, so have I sworn that I will not be angry with you or rebuke you.
فَإِنَّ ٱلْجِبَالَ تَزُولُ، وَٱلْآكَامَ تَتَزَعْزَعُ، أَمَّا إِحْسَانِي فَلَا يَزُولُ عَنْكِ، وَعَهْدُ سَلَامِي لَا يَتَزَعْزَعُ، قَالَ رَاحِمُكِ ٱلرَّبُّ. ١٠ 10
Though the mountains may fall and the hills be shaken, yet my steadfast love will not turn away from you, nor will my covenant of peace be shaken— says Yahweh, who has mercy on you.
«أَيَّتُهَا ٱلذَّلِيلَةُ ٱلْمُضْطَرِبَةُ غَيْرُ ٱلْمُتَعَزِّيَةِ، هَأَنَذَا أَبْنِي بِٱلْأُثْمُدِ حِجَارَتَكِ، وَبِٱلْيَاقُوتِ ٱلْأَزْرَقِ أُؤَسِّسُكِ، ١١ 11
Afflicted one, storm-driven and uncomforted one, look, I will set your pavement in turquoise, and lay your foundations with sapphires.
وَأَجْعَلُ شُرَفَكِ يَاقُوتًا، وَأَبْوَابَكِ حِجَارَةً بَهْرَمَانِيَّةً، وَكُلَّ تُخُومِكِ حِجَارَةً كَرِيمَةً ١٢ 12
I will make your pinnacles of rubies and your gates of sparkling stones, and your outer wall of beautiful stones.
وَكُلَّ بَنِيكِ تَلَامِيذَ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَسَلَامَ بَنِيكِ كَثِيرًا. ١٣ 13
Then all your children will be taught by Yahweh; and the peace of your children will be great.
بِٱلْبِرِّ تُثَبَّتِينَ بَعِيدَةً عَنِ ٱلظُّلْمِ فَلَا تَخَافِينَ، وَعَنِ ٱلِٱرْتِعَابِ فَلَا يَدْنُو مِنْكِ. ١٤ 14
In righteousness you will be established, and you will be far from oppression, for you will not fear; and from terror, for it will not come near to you.
هَا إِنَّهُمْ يَجْتَمِعُونَ ٱجْتِمَاعًا لَيْسَ مِنْ عِنْدِي. مَنِ ٱجْتَمَعَ عَلَيْكِ فَإِلَيْكِ يَسْقُطُ. ١٥ 15
Look, if anyone stirs up trouble, it will not be from me; anyone who stirs up trouble with you will fall in defeat.
هَأَنَذَا قَدْ خَلَقْتُ ٱلْحَدَّادَ ٱلَّذِي يَنْفُخُ ٱلْفَحْمَ فِي ٱلنَّارِ وَيُخْرِجُ آلَةً لِعَمَلِهِ، وَأَنَا خَلَقْتُ ٱلْمُهْلِكَ لِيَخْرِبَ. ١٦ 16
See, I have created the craftsman, who blows the burning coals and forges weapons as his work, and I have created the destroyer to destroy.
«كُلُّ آلَةٍ صُوِّرَتْ ضِدَّكِ لَا تَنْجَحُ، وَكُلُّ لِسَانٍ يَقُومُ عَلَيْكِ فِي ٱلْقَضَاءِ تَحْكُمِينَ عَلَيْهِ. هَذَا هُوَ مِيرَاثُ عَبِيدِ ٱلرَّبِّ وَبِرُّهُمْ مِنْ عِنْدِي، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ١٧ 17
No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; and you will condemn everyone who accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of Yahweh, and their vindication from me—this is Yahweh's declaration.”
