إِشَعْيَاءَ 8

وَقَالَ لِي ٱلرَّبُّ: «خُذْ لِنَفْسِكَ لَوْحًا كَبِيرًا، وَٱكْتُبْ عَلَيْهِ بِقَلَمِ إِنْسَانٍ: لِمَهَيْرَ شَلَالَ حَاشَ بَزَ. ١ 1
Yahweh said to me, “Take a large tablet and write on it, 'Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz.'
وَأَنْ أُشْهِدَ لِنَفْسِي شَاهِدَيْنِ أَمِينَيْنِ: أُورِيَّا ٱلْكَاهِنَ، وَزَكَرِيَّا بْنَ يَبْرَخْيَا». ٢ 2
I will summon faithful witnesses to attest for me, Uriah the priest, and Zechariah son of Jeberekiah.”
فَٱقْتَرَبْتُ إِلَى ٱلنَّبِيَّةِ فَحَبِلَتْ وَوَلَدَتِ ٱبْنًا. فَقَالَ لِي ٱلرَّبُّ: «ٱدْعُ ٱسْمَهُ مَهَيْرَ شَلَالَ حَاشَ بَزَ. ٣ 3
I went to the prophetess, and she conceived and bore a son. Then Yahweh said to me, “Call his name Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz.
لِأَنَّهُ قَبْلَ أَنْ يَعْرِفَ ٱلصَّبِيُّ أَنْ يَدْعُوَ: يَا أَبِي وَيَا أُمِّي، تُحْمَلُ ثَرْوَةُ دِمَشْقَ وَغَنِيمَةُ ٱلسَّامِرَةِ قُدَّامَ مَلِكِ أَشُّورَ». ٤ 4
For before the child knows to cry, 'My father,' and, 'My mother,' the riches of Damascus and the plunder of Samaria will be carried away by the king of Assyria.”
ثُمَّ عَادَ ٱلرَّبُّ يُكَلِّمُنِي أَيْضًا قَائِلًا: ٥ 5
Yahweh spoke to me again,
«لِأَنَّ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبَ رَذَلَ مِيَاهَ شِيلُوهَ ٱلْجَارِيَةَ بِسُكُوتٍ، وَسُرَّ بِرَصِينَ وَٱبْنِ رَمَلْيَا. ٦ 6
“Because this people has refused the gentle waters of Shiloah, and is happy over Rezin and Remaliah's son,
لِذَلِكَ هُوَذَا ٱلسَّيِّدُ يُصْعِدُ عَلَيْهِمْ مِيَاهَ ٱلنَّهْرِ ٱلْقَوِيَّةَ وَٱلْكَثِيرَةَ، مَلِكَ أَشُّورَ وَكُلَّ مَجْدِهِ، فَيَصْعَدُ فَوْقَ جَمِيعِ مَجَارِيهِ وَيَجْرِي فَوْقَ جَمِيعِ شُطُوطِهِ، ٧ 7
therefore the Lord is about to bring up on them the waters of the River, mighty and many, the king of Assyria and all his glory. It will come up over all its channels and overflow its banks.
وَيَنْدَفِقُ إِلَى يَهُوذَا. يَفِيضُ وَيَعْبُرُ. يَبْلُغُ ٱلْعُنُقَ. وَيَكُونُ بَسْطُ جَنَاحَيْهِ مِلْءَ عَرْضِ بِلَادِكَ يَا عِمَّانُوئِيلُ». ٨ 8
The River will sweep onward into Judah, flooding and passing on, until it reaches to your neck. Its outstretched wings will fill the breadth of your land, Immanuel.”
هِيجُوا أَيُّهَا ٱلشُّعُوبُ وَٱنْكَسِرُوا، وَأَصْغِي يَاجَمِيعَ أَقَاصِي ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٱحْتَزِمُوا وَٱنْكَسِرُوا! ٱحْتَزِمُوا وَٱنْكَسِرُوا! ٩ 9
You peoples will be broken to pieces. Listen, all you distant countries: arm yourselves for war and be broken in pieces; arm yourselves and be broken in pieces.
تَشَاوَرُوا مَشُورَةً فَتَبْطُلَ. تَكَلَّمُوا كَلِمَةً فَلَا تَقُومُ، لِأَنَّ ٱللهَ مَعَنَا. ١٠ 10
Form a plan, but it will not be carried out; issue the command, but it will not be carried out, for God is with us.
فَإِنَّهُ هَكَذَا قَالَ لِي ٱلرَّبُّ بِشِدَّةِ ٱلْيَدِ، وَأَنْذَرَنِي أَنْ لَا أَسْلُكَ فِي طَرِيقِ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبِ قَائِلًا: ١١ 11
Yahweh spoke to me, with his strong hand upon me, and warned me not to walk in the way of this people.
«لَا تَقُولُوا: فِتْنَةً لِكُلِّ مَا يَقُولُ لَهُ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبُ فِتْنَةً، وَلَا تَخَافُوا خَوْفَهُ وَلَا تَرْهَبُوا. ١٢ 12
Do not call conspiracy anything that this people calls conspiracy, you will not fear what they fear, and do not be terrified.
قَدِّسُوا رَبَّ ٱلْجُنُودِ فَهُوَ خَوْفُكُمْ وَهُوَ رَهْبَتُكُمْ. ١٣ 13
It is Yahweh of hosts whom you will honor as holy; he is the one you must fear, and he is the one you must dread.
وَيَكُونُ مَقْدِسًا وَحَجَرَ صَدْمَةٍ وَصَخْرَةَ عَثْرَةٍ لِبَيْتَيْ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَفَخًّا وَشَرَكًا لِسُكَّانِ أُورُشَلِيمَ. ١٤ 14
He will become a sanctuary; but he will be a stone of striking, and a rock of stumbling— for both the houses of Israel, and he will be a trap and a snare to the people of Jerusalem.
فَيَعْثُرُ بِهَا كَثِيرُونَ وَيَسْقُطُونَ، فَيَنْكَسِرُونَ وَيَعْلَقُونَ فَيُلْقَطُونَ». ١٥ 15
Many will stumble over it and fall and be broken, and be ensnared and captured.
صُرَّ ٱلشِّهَادَةَ. ٱخْتِمِ ٱلشَّرِيعَةَ بِتَلَامِيذِي. ١٦ 16
Bind up my testimony, seal the official record, and give it to my disciples.
فَأَصْطَبِرُ لِلرَّبِّ ٱلسَّاتِرِ وَجْهَهُ عَنْ بَيْتِ يَعْقُوبَ وَأَنْتَظِرُهُ. ١٧ 17
I will wait for Yahweh, who hides his face from the house of Jacob; I will trust in him.
هَأَنَذَا وَٱلْأَوْلَادُ ٱلَّذِينَ أَعْطَانِيهِمُ ٱلرَّبُّ آيَاتٍ، وَعَجَائِبَ فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ عِنْدِ رَبِّ ٱلْجُنُودِ ٱلسَّاكِنِ فِي جَبَلِ صِهْيَوْنَ. ١٨ 18
See, I and the sons whom Yahweh has given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from Yahweh of hosts, who lives on Mount Zion.
وَإِذَا قَالُوا لَكُمُ: «ٱطْلُبُوا إِلَى أَصْحَابِ ٱلتَّوَابِعِ وَٱلْعَرَّافِينَ ٱلْمُشَقْشِقِينَ وَٱلْهَامِسِينَ». «أَلَا يَسْأَلُ شَعْبٌ إِلَهَهُ؟ أَيُسْأَلُ ٱلْمَوْتَى لِأَجْلِ ٱلْأَحْيَاءِ؟» ١٩ 19
They will say to you, “Consult with the mediums and spiritists,” those who chirp and mutter incantations. But should a people not consult their God? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living?
إِلَى ٱلشَّرِيعَةِ وَإِلَى ٱلشَّهَادَةِ. إِنْ لَمْ يَقُولُوا مِثْلَ هَذَا ٱلْقَوْلِ فَلَيْسَ لَهُمْ فَجْرٌ! ٢٠ 20
To the law and to the testimony! If they do not say such things, it is because they have no light of dawn.
فَيَعْبُرُونَ فِيهَا مُضَايَقِينَ وَجَائِعِينَ. وَيَكُونُ حِينَمَا يَجُوعُونَ أَنَّهُمْ يَحْنَقُونَ وَيَسُبُّونَ مَلِكَهُمْ وَإِلَهَهُمْ وَيَلْتَفِتُونَ إِلَى فَوْقُ. ٢١ 21
They will pass through the land greatly distressed and hungry. When they are hungry, they will become angry and curse their king and their God, as they turn their faces upward.
وَيَنْظُرُونَ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَإِذَا شِدَّةٌ وَظُلْمَةٌ، قَتَامُ ٱلضِّيقِ، وَإِلَى ٱلظَّلَامِ هُمْ مَطْرُودُونَ. ٢٢ 22
They will look at the earth and see distress, darkness, and oppressive gloom. They will be driven into a land of darkness.
