إِشَعْيَاءَ 65

«أَصْغَيْتُ إِلَى ٱلَّذِينَ لَمْ يَسْأَلُوا. وُجِدْتُ مِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَمْ يَطْلُبُونِي. قُلْتُ: هَأَنَذَا، هَأَنَذَا. لِأُمَّةٍ لَمْ تُسَمَّ بِٱسْمِي. ١ 1
“I was ready to be sought out by those who did not ask; I was ready to be found by those who did not seek. I said, 'Here I am! Here I am!' to a nation that did not call on my name.
بَسَطْتُ يَدَيَّ طُولَ ٱلنَّهَارِ إِلَى شَعْبٍ مُتَمَرِّدٍ سَائِرٍ فِي طَرِيقٍ غَيْرِ صَالِحٍ وَرَاءَ أَفْكَارِهِ. ٢ 2
I have spread out my hands all day to a stubborn people, who walk in a way that is not good, who have walked after their own thoughts and plans!
شَعْبٍ يُغِيظُنِي بِوَجْهِي. دَائِمًا يَذْبَحُ فِي ٱلْجَنَّاتِ، وَيُبَخِّرُ عَلَى ٱلْآجُرِّ. ٣ 3
They are a people who continually offend me, offering sacrifices in gardens, and burning incense on brick tiles.
يَجْلِسُ فِي ٱلْقُبُورِ، وَيَبِيتُ فِي ٱلْمَدَافِنِ. يَأْكُلُ لَحْمَ ٱلْخِنْزِيرِ، وَفِي آنِيَتِهِ مَرَقُ لُحُومٍ نَجِسَةٍ. ٤ 4
They sit among the graves and keep watch all night, and eat pork with the broth of foul meat in their dishes.
يَقُولُ: قِفْ عِنْدَكَ. لَا تَدْنُ مِنِّي لِأَنِّي أَقْدَسُ مِنْكَ. هَؤُلَاءِ دُخَانٌ فِي أَنْفِي، نَارٌ مُتَّقِدَةٌ كُلَّ ٱلنَّهَارِ. ٥ 5
They say, 'Stand away, do not come near to me, for I am holier than you.' These things are smoke in my nose, a fire that burns all day long.
هَا قَدْ كُتِبَ أَمَامِي. لَا أَسْكُتُ بَلْ أُجَازِي. أُجَازِي فِي حِضْنِهِمْ، ٦ 6
Look, it is written before me: I will not keep quiet, for I will pay them back; I will repay them into their laps,
آثَامَكُمْ وَآثَامَ آبَائِكُمْ مَعًا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ، ٱلَّذِينَ بَخَّرُوا عَلَى ٱلْجِبَالِ، وَعَيَّرُونِي عَلَى ٱلْآكَامِ، فَأَكِيلُ عَمَلَهُمُ ٱلْأَوَّلَ فِي حِضْنِهِمْ». ٧ 7
for their sins and the sins of their fathers together,” says Yahweh. “I will repay them for burning incense on the mountains and for mocking me on the hills. I will therefore measure out their past deeds into their laps.”
هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «كَمَا أَنَّ ٱلسُّلَافَ يُوجَدُ فِي ٱلْعُنْقُودِ، فَيَقُولُ قَائِلٌ: لَا تُهْلِكْهُ لِأَنَّ فِيهِ بَرَكَةً. هَكَذَا أَعْمَلُ لِأَجْلِ عَبِيدِي حَتَّى لَا أُهْلِكَ ٱلْكُلَّ. ٨ 8
This is what Yahweh says, “As when juice is found in a cluster of grapes, when one says, 'Do not ruin it, for there is good in it,' this is what I will do for my servants' sake: I will not ruin them all.
بَلْ أُخْرِجُ مِنْ يَعْقُوبَ نَسْلًا وَمِنْ يَهُوذَا وَارِثًا لِجِبَالِي، فَيَرِثُهَا مُخْتَارِيَّ، وَتَسْكُنُ عَبِيدِي هُنَاكَ. ٩ 9
I will bring descendants from Jacob, and from Judah ones who will possess my mountains. My chosen ones will possess the land, and my servants will live there.
فَيَكُونُ شَارُونُ مَرْعَى غَنَمٍ، وَوَادِي عَخُورَ مَرْبِضَ بَقَرٍ، لِشَعْبِي ٱلَّذِينَ طَلَبُونِي. ١٠ 10
Sharon will become a pasture for the flocks, and the Valley of Achor a resting place for herds, for my people who seek me.
«أَمَّا أَنْتُمُ ٱلَّذِينَ تَرَكُوا ٱلرَّبَّ وَنَسُوا جَبَلَ قُدْسِي، وَرَتَّبُوا لِلسَّعْدِ ٱلْأَكْبَرِ مَائِدَةً، وَمَلَأُوا لِلسَّعْدِ ٱلْأَصْغَرِ خَمْرًا مَمْزُوجَةً، ١١ 11
But you who abandon Yahweh, who forget my holy mountain, who prepare a table for Fortune, and fill wine glasses of mixed wine for Destiny.
فَإِنِّي أُعَيِّنُكُمْ لِلسَّيْفِ، وَتَجْثُونَ كُلُّكُمْ لِلذَّبْحِ، لِأَنِّي دَعَوْتُ فَلَمْ تُجِيبُوا، تَكَلَّمْتُ فَلَمْ تَسْمَعُوا، بَلْ عَمِلْتُمُ ٱلشَّرَّ فِي عَيْنَيَّ، وَٱخْتَرْتُمْ مَا لَمْ أُسَرَّ بِهِ. ١٢ 12
I will appoint you for the sword, and you will all bow down to the slaughter, because when I called, you did not answer; when I spoke, you did not listen. But you did what was evil in my sight and and chose to do what displeases me.”
لِذَلِكَ هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ: هُوَذَا عَبِيدِي يَأْكُلُونَ وَأَنْتُمْ تَجُوعُونَ. هُوَذَا عَبِيدِي يَشْرَبُونَ وَأَنْتُمْ تَعْطَشُونَ. هُوَذَا عَبِيدِي يَفْرَحُونَ وَأَنْتُمْ تَخْزَوْنَ. ١٣ 13
This is what the Lord Yahweh says, “Look, my servants will eat, but you will be hungry; look, my servants will drink, but you will be thirsty; look, my servants will rejoice, but you will be put to shame.
هُوَذَا عَبِيدِي يَتَرَنَّمُونَ مِنْ طِيبَةِ ٱلْقَلْبِ وَأَنْتُمْ تَصْرُخُونَ مِنْ كآبَةِ ٱلْقَلْبِ، وَمِنِ ٱنْكِسَارِ ٱلرُّوحِ تُوَلْوِلُونَ. ١٤ 14
Look, my servants will shout with joy because of gladness of heart, but you will cry because of the pain of the heart, and will wail because of the crushing of the spirit.
وَتُخْلِفُونَ ٱسْمَكُمْ لَعْنَةً لِمُخْتَارِيَّ، فَيُمِيتُكَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ وَيُسَمِّي عَبِيدَهُ ٱسْمًا آخَرَ. ١٥ 15
You will leave behind your name as a curse for my chosen ones to speak; I, the Lord Yahweh, will kill you; I will call my servants by another name.
فَٱلَّذِي يَتَبَرَّكُ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ يَتَبَرَّكُ بِإِلَهِ ٱلْحَقِّ، وَٱلَّذِي يَحْلِفُ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ يَحْلِفُ بِإِلَهِ ٱلْحَقِّ، لِأَنَّ ٱلضِّيقَاتِ ٱلْأُولَى قَدْ نُسِيَتْ، وَلِأَنَّهَا ٱسْتَتَرَتْ عَنْ عَيْنَيَّ. ١٦ 16
Whoever pronounces a blessing on the earth will be blessed by me, the God of truth. Whoever takes an oath on the earth will swear by me, the God of truth, because the former troubles will be forgotten, for they will be hidden from my eyes.
«لِأَنِّي هَأَنَذَا خَالِقٌ سَمَاوَاتٍ جَدِيدَةً وَأَرْضًا جَدِيدَةً، فَلَا تُذْكَرُ ٱلْأُولَى وَلَا تَخْطُرُ عَلَى بَالٍ. ١٧ 17
For see, I am about to create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things will not be remembered or be brought to mind.
بَلِ ٱفْرَحُوا وَٱبْتَهِجُوا إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ فِي مَا أَنَا خَالِقٌ، لِأَنِّي هَأَنَذَا خَالِقٌ أُورُشَلِيمَ بَهْجَةً وَشَعْبَهَا فَرَحًا. ١٨ 18
But you will be glad and rejoice forever in what I am about to create. See, I am about to create Jerusalem as a joy, and her people as a delight.
فَأَبْتَهِجُ بِأُورُشَلِيمَ وَأَفْرَحُ بِشَعْبِي، وَلَا يُسْمَعُ بَعْدُ فِيهَا صَوْتُ بُكَاءٍ وَلَا صَوْتُ صُرَاخٍ. ١٩ 19
I will rejoice over Jerusalem and be glad over my people; weeping and cries of distress will no longer be heard in her.
لَا يَكُونُ بَعْدُ هُنَاكَ طِفْلُ أَيَّامٍ، وَلَا شَيْخٌ لَمْ يُكْمِلْ أَيَّامَهُ. لِأَنَّ ٱلصَّبِيَّ يَمُوتُ ٱبْنَ مِئَةِ سَنَةٍ، وَٱلْخَاطِئُ يُلْعَنُ ٱبْنَ مِئَةِ سَنَةٍ. ٢٠ 20
Never again will an infant live there only a few days; nor will an old man die before his time. One who dies at one hundred years old will be considered a young person. Anyone who fails to reach the age of one hundred years old will be considered cursed.
وَيَبْنُونَ بُيُوتًا وَيَسْكُنُونَ فِيهَا، وَيَغْرِسُونَ كُرُومًا وَيَأْكُلُونَ أَثْمَارَهَا. ٢١ 21
They will build houses and inhabit them, and they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
لَا يَبْنُونَ وَآخَرُ يَسْكُنُ، وَلَا يَغْرِسُونَ وَآخَرُ يَأْكُلُ. لِأَنَّهُ كَأَيَّامِ شَجَرَةٍ أَيَّامُ شَعْبِي، وَيَسْتَعْمِلُ مُخْتَارِيَّ عَمَلَ أَيْدِيهِمْ. ٢٢ 22
No longer will they build a house and another live in it; they will not plant, and another eat; for as the days of trees will be the days of my people. My chosen will fully outlive the work of their hands.
لَا يَتْعَبُونَ بَاطِلًا وَلَا يَلِدُونَ لِلرُّعْبِ، لِأَنَّهُمْ نَسْلُ مُبَارَكِي ٱلرَّبِّ، وَذُرِّيَّتُهُمْ مَعَهُمْ. ٢٣ 23
They will not labor in vain, nor give birth to dismay. For they are the children of those blessed by Yahweh, and their descendants with them.
وَيَكُونُ أَنِّي قَبْلَمَا يَدْعُونَ أَنَا أُجِيبُ، وَفِيمَا هُمْ يَتَكَلَّمُونَ بَعْدُ أَنَا أَسْمَعُ. ٢٤ 24
Before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear.
ٱلذِّئْبُ وَٱلْحَمَلُ يَرْعَيَانِ مَعًا، وَٱلْأَسَدُ يَأْكُلُ ٱلتِّبْنَ كَٱلْبَقَرِ. أَمَّا ٱلْحَيَّةُ فَٱلتُّرَابُ طَعَامُهَا. لَا يُؤْذُونَ وَلَا يُهْلِكُونَ فِي كُلِّ جَبَلِ قُدْسِي، قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ». ٢٥ 25
The wolf and the lamb will graze together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox; but dust will be the serpent's food. They will no longer hurt nor destroy on all my holy mountain,” says Yahweh.
