إِشَعْيَاءَ 66

هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «ٱلسَّمَاوَاتُ كُرْسِيِّي، وَٱلْأَرْضُ مَوْطِئُ قَدَمَيَّ. أَيْنَ ٱلْبَيْتُ ٱلَّذِي تَبْنُونَ لِي؟ وَأَيْنَ مَكَانُ رَاحَتِي؟ ١ 1
This is what Yahweh says, “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where then is the house you will build for me? Where is the place where I may rest?
وَكُلُّ هَذِهِ صَنَعَتْهَا يَدِي، فَكَانَتْ كُلُّ هَذِهِ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ. وَإِلَى هَذَا أَنْظُرُ: إِلَى ٱلْمِسْكِينِ وَٱلْمُنْسَحِقِ ٱلرُّوحِ وَٱلْمُرْتَعِدِ مِنْ كَلَامِي. ٢ 2
My hand has made all these things; that is how these things came to be—this is Yahweh's declaration. This is the man of whom I approve, the broken and contrite in spirit, and who trembles at my word.
مَنْ يَذْبَحُ ثَوْرًا فَهُوَ قَاتِلُ إِنْسَانٍ. مَنْ يَذْبَحُ شَاةً فَهُوَ نَاحِرُ كَلْبٍ. مَنْ يُصْعِدُ تَقْدِمَةً يُصْعِدُ دَمَ خِنْزِيرٍ. مَنْ أَحْرَقَ لُبَانًا فَهُوَ مُبَارِكٌ وَثَنًا. بَلْ هُمُ ٱخْتَارُوا طُرُقَهُمْ، وَبِمَكْرَهَاتِهِمْ سُرَّتْ أَنْفُسُهُمْ. ٣ 3
He who slaughters an ox also murders a man; he who sacrifices a lamb also breaks a dog's neck; he who offers a grain offering offers swine's blood; he who offers a memorial of incense also blesses wickedness. They have chosen their own ways, and they take pleasure in their abominations.
فَأَنَا أَيْضًا أَخْتَارُ مَصَائِبَهُمْ، وَمَخَاوِفَهُمْ أَجْلِبُهَا عَلَيْهِمْ. مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنِّي دَعَوْتُ فَلَمْ يَكُنْ مُجِيبٌ. تَكَلَّمْتُ فَلَمْ يَسْمَعُوا. بَلْ عَمِلُوا ٱلْقَبِيحَ فِي عَيْنَيَّ، وَٱخْتَارُوا مَا لَمْ أُسَرَّ بِهِ». ٤ 4
In the same way I will choose their own punishment; I will bring on them what they fear, because when I called, no one answered; when I spoke, no one listened. They did what was evil in my sight, and chose to do what displeases me.”
اِسْمَعُوا كَلَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ أَيُّهَا ٱلْمُرْتَعِدُونَ مِنْ كَلَامِهِ: «قَالَ إِخْوَتُكُمُ ٱلَّذِينَ أَبْغَضُوكُمْ وَطَرَدُوكُمْ مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱسْمِي: لِيَتَمَجَّدِ ٱلرَّبُّ. فَيَظْهَرُ لِفَرَحِكُمْ، وَأَمَّا هُمْ فَيَخْزَوْنَ. ٥ 5
Hear the word of Yahweh, you who tremble at his word, “Your brothers who hate and exclude you for my name's sake have said, 'May Yahweh be glorified, then we will see your joy,' but they will be put to shame.
صَوْتُ ضَجِيجٍ مِنَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ، صَوْتٌ مِنَ ٱلْهَيْكَلِ، صَوْتُ ٱلرَّبِّ مُجَازِيًا أَعْدَاءَهُ. ٦ 6
A sound of battle tumult comes from the city, a sound from the temple, the sound of Yahweh paying back his enemies.
قَبْلَ أَنْ يَأْخُذَهَا ٱلطَّلْقُ وَلَدَتْ. قَبْلَ أَنْ يَأْتِيَ عَلَيْهَا ٱلْمَخَاضُ وَلَدَتْ ذَكَرًا. ٧ 7
Before she goes into labor, she gives birth; before pain is upon her, she gave birth to a son.
مَنْ سَمِعَ مِثْلَ هَذَا؟ مَنْ رَأَى مِثْلَ هَذِهِ؟ هَلْ تَمْخَضُ بِلَادٌ فِي يَوْمٍ وَاحِدٍ، أَوْ تُولَدُ أُمَّةٌ دَفْعَةً وَاحِدَةً؟ فَقَدْ مَخَضَتْ صِهْيَوْنُ، بَلْ وَلَدَتْ بَنِيهَا! ٨ 8
Who has heard of such a thing? Who has seen such things? Will a land be born in one day? Can a nation be established in one moment? Yet as soon as Zion goes into labor, she gives birth to her children.
هَلْ أَنَا أُمْخِضُ وَلَا أُوَلِّدُ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، أَوْ أَنَا ٱلْمُوَلِّدُ هَلْ أُغْلِقُ ٱلرَّحِمَ، قَالَ إِلَهُكِ؟ ٩ 9
Do I bring a baby to the birth opening and not permit the child to be born?—asks Yahweh. Or do I bring a child to moment of delivery and then hold it back?—asks your God.”
ٱفْرَحُوا مَعَ أُورُشَلِيمَ وَٱبْتَهِجُوا مَعَهَا، يَا جَمِيعَ مُحِبِّيهَا. اِفْرَحُوا مَعَهَا فَرَحًا، يَا جَمِيعَ ٱلنَّائِحِينَ عَلَيْهَا، ١٠ 10
Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice with her, all you who mourned over her!
لِكَيْ تَرْضَعُوا وَتَشْبَعُوا مِنْ ثَدْيِ تَعْزِيَاتِهَا، لِكَيْ تَعْصِرُوا وَتَتَلَذَّذُوا مِنْ دِرَّةِ مَجْدِهَا». ١١ 11
For you will nurse and be satisfied; with her breasts you will be comforted; for you will drink them to the full and be delighted with the abundance of her glory.
لِأَنَّهُ هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «هَأَنَذَا أُدِيرُ عَلَيْهَا سَلَامًا كَنَهْرٍ، وَمَجْدَ ٱلْأُمَمِ كَسَيْلٍ جَارِفٍ، فَتَرْضَعُونَ، وَعَلَى ٱلْأَيْدِي تُحْمَلُونَ وَعَلَى ٱلرُّكْبَتَيْنِ تُدَلَّلُونَ. ١٢ 12
This is what Yahweh says, “I am about to spread prosperity over her like a river, and the riches of the nations like an overflowing stream. You will nurse at her side, be carried in her arms, and be dandled on her knees.
كَإِنْسَانٍ تُعَزِّيهِ أُمُّهُ هَكَذَا أُعَزِّيكُمْ أَنَا، وَفِي أُورُشَلِيمَ تُعَزَّوْنَ. ١٣ 13
As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you, and you will be comforted in Jerusalem.”
فَتَرَوْنَ وَتَفْرَحُ قُلُوبُكُمْ، وَتَزْهُو عِظَامُكُمْ كَٱلْعُشْبِ، وَتُعْرَفُ يَدُ ٱلرَّبِّ عِنْدَ عَبِيدِهِ، وَيَحْنَقُ عَلَى أَعْدَائِهِ. ١٤ 14
You will see this, and your heart will rejoice, and your bones will sprout like the tender grass. The hand of Yahweh will be made known to his servants, but he will show his anger against his enemies.
لِأَنَّهُ هُوَذَا ٱلرَّبُّ بِٱلنَّارِ يَأْتِي، وَمَرْكَبَاتُهُ كَزَوْبَعَةٍ لِيَرُدَّ بِحُمُوٍّ غَضَبَهُ، وَزَجْرَهُ بِلَهِيبِ نَارٍ. ١٥ 15
For look, Yahweh is coming with fire, and his chariots are coming like the windstorm to bring the heat of his anger and his rebuke with flames of fire.
لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ بِٱلنَّارِ يُعَاقِبُ وَبِسَيْفِهِ عَلَى كُلِّ بَشَرٍ، وَيَكْثُرُ قَتْلَى ٱلرَّبِّ. ١٦ 16
For Yahweh executes judgment on mankind by fire and with his sword. Those killed by Yahweh will be many.
ٱلَّذِينَ يُقَدِّسُونَ وَيُطَهِّرُونَ أَنْفُسَهُمْ فِي ٱلْجَنَّاتِ وَرَاءَ وَاحِدٍ فِي ٱلْوَسَطِ، آكِلِينَ لَحْمَ ٱلْخِنْزِيرِ وَٱلرِّجْسَ وَٱلْجُرَذَ، يَفْنَوْنَ مَعًا، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ١٧ 17
They consecrate themselves and make themselves pure, so they may enter the gardens, following the one in the middle of those who eat the flesh of pig and abominable things like mice. “They will come to an end—this is Yahweh's declaration.
وَأَنَا أُجَازِي أَعْمَالَهُمْ وَأَفْكَارَهُمْ. حَدَثَ لِجَمْعِ كُلِّ ٱلْأُمَمِ وَٱلْأَلْسِنَةِ، فَيَأْتُونَ وَيَرَوْنَ مَجْدِي. ١٨ 18
For I know their deeds and their thoughts. The time is coming when I will gather all nations and languages. They will come and will see my glory.
وَأَجْعَلُ فِيهِمْ آيَةً، وَأُرْسِلُ مِنْهُمْ نَاجِينَ إِلَى ٱلْأُمَمِ، إِلَى تَرْشِيشَ وَفُولَ وَلُودَ ٱلنَّازِعِينَ فِي ٱلْقَوْسِ، إِلَى تُوبَالَ وَيَاوَانَ، إِلَى ٱلْجَزَائِرِ ٱلْبَعِيدَةِ ٱلَّتِي لَمْ تَسْمَعْ خَبَرِي وَلَا رَأَتْ مَجْدِي، فَيُخْبِرُونَ بِمَجْدِي بَيْنَ ٱلْأُمَمِ. ١٩ 19
I will set a mighty sign among them. Then I will send survivors from them to the nations: To Tarshish, Put, and Lud, archers who draw their bows, to Tubal, Javan, and to the distant coastlands where they have not heard about me nor seen my glory. They will proclaim my glory among the nations.
وَيُحْضِرُونَ كُلَّ إِخْوَتِكُمْ مِنْ كُلِّ ٱلْأُمَمِ، تَقْدِمَةً لِلرَّبِّ، عَلَى خَيْلٍ وَبِمَرْكَبَاتٍ وَبِهَوَادِجَ وَبِغَالٍ وَهُجُنٍ إِلَى جَبَلِ قُدْسِي أُورُشَلِيمَ، قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ، كَمَا يُحْضِرُ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ تَقْدِمَةً فِي إِنَاءٍ طَاهِرٍ إِلَى بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٢٠ 20
They will bring back all your brothers out of all the nations, as an offering to Yahweh. They will come on horses, and in chariots, in wagons, on mules, and on camels, to my holy mountain Jerusalem—says Yahweh. For the people of Israel will bring a grain offering in a clean vessel into the house of Yahweh.
وَأَتَّخِذُ أَيْضًا مِنْهُمْ كَهَنَةً وَلَاوِيِّينَ، قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٢١ 21
Some of these I will even choose as priests and Levites—says Yahweh.
لِأَنَّهُ كَمَا أَنَّ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ ٱلْجَدِيدَةَ وَٱلْأَرْضَ ٱلْجَدِيدَةَ ٱلَّتِي أَنَا صَانِعٌ تَثْبُتُ أَمَامِي، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، هَكَذَا يَثْبُتُ نَسْلُكُمْ وَٱسْمُكُمْ. ٢٢ 22
For just as the new heavens and the new earth that I will make will remain before me—this is Yahweh's declaration—so your descendants will remain, and your name will remain.
وَيَكُونُ مِنْ هِلَالٍ إِلَى هِلَالٍ وَمِنْ سَبْتٍ إِلَى سَبْتٍ، أَنَّ كُلَّ ذِي جَسَدٍ يَأْتِي لِيَسْجُدَ أَمَامِي، قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٢٣ 23
From one month to the next, and from one Sabbath to the next, all people will come to bow down to me—says Yahweh.
وَيَخْرُجُونَ وَيَرَوْنَ جُثَثَ ٱلنَّاسِ ٱلَّذِينَ عَصَوْا عَلَيَّ، لِأَنَّ دُودَهُمْ لَا يَمُوتُ وَنَارَهُمْ لَا تُطْفَأُ، وَيَكُونُونَ رَذَالَةً لِكُلِّ ذِي جَسَدٍ». ٢٤ 24
They will go out and see the dead bodies of the men who have rebelled against me, for the worms that eat them will not die, and the fire that consumes them will not be quenched; and it will be an abhorrence to all flesh.”
