إِشَعْيَاءَ 1

رُؤْيَا إِشَعْيَاءَ بْنِ آمُوصَ، ٱلَّتِي رَآهَا عَلَى يَهُوذَا وَأُورُشَلِيمَ، فِي أَيَّامِ عُزِّيَّا وَيُوثَامَ وَآحَازَ وَحِزْقِيَّا مُلُوكِ يَهُوذَا: ١ 1
The vision of Isaiah son of Amoz, that he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.
اِسْمَعِي أَيَّتُهَا ٱلسَّمَاوَاتُ وَأَصْغِي أَيَّتُهَا ٱلْأَرْضُ، لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ يَتَكَلَّمُ: «رَبَّيْتُ بَنِينَ وَنَشَّأْتُهُمْ، أَمَّا هُمْ فَعَصَوْا عَلَيَّ. ٢ 2
Hear, heavens, and give ear, earth; for Yahweh has spoken: “I have nourished and brought up children, but they have rebelled against me.
اَلثَّوْرُ يَعْرِفُ قَانِيَهُ وَٱلْحِمَارُ مِعْلَفَ صَاحِبِهِ، أَمَّا إِسْرَائِيلُ فَلَا يَعْرِفُ. شَعْبِي لَا يَفْهَمُ». ٣ 3
The ox knows his owner, and the donkey his master's feeding trough, but Israel does not know, Israel does not understand.”
وَيْلٌ لِلْأُمَّةِ ٱلْخَاطِئَةِ، ٱلشَّعْبِ ٱلثَّقِيلِ ٱلْإِثْمِ، نَسْلِ فَاعِلِي ٱلشَّرِّ، أَوْلَادِ مُفْسِدِينَ! تَرَكُوا ٱلرَّبَّ، ٱسْتَهَانُوا بِقُدُّوسِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، ٱرْتَدُّوا إِلَى وَرَاءٍ. ٤ 4
Woe! Nation, sinners, a people weighed down with iniquity, offspring of evildoers, sons who act corruptly! They have abandoned Yahweh, they have despised the Holy One of Israel, they have estranged themselves from him.
عَلَى مَ تُضْرَبُونَ بَعْدُ؟ تَزْدَادُونَ زَيَغَانًا! كُلُّ ٱلرَّأْسِ مَرِيضٌ، وَكُلُّ ٱلْقَلْبِ سَقِيمٌ. ٥ 5
Why are you still being beaten? Why do you rebel more and more? The whole head is sick, the whole heart is weak.
مِنْ أَسْفَلِ ٱلْقَدَمِ إِلَى ٱلرَّأْسِ لَيْسَ فِيهِ صِحَّةٌ، بَلْ جُرْحٌ وَأَحْبَاطٌ وَضَرْبَةٌ طَرِيَّةٌ لَمْ تُعْصَرْ وَلَمْ تُعْصَبْ وَلَمْ تُلَيَّنْ بِٱلزَّيْتِ. ٦ 6
From the sole of the foot to the head there is no part unharmed; only wounds, and bruises, and fresh open wounds; they have not been closed, cleansed, bandaged, nor treated with oil.
بِلَادُكُمْ خَرِبَةٌ. مُدُنُكُمْ مُحْرَقَةٌ بِٱلنَّارِ. أَرْضُكُمْ تَأْكُلُهَا غُرَبَاءُ قُدَّامَكُمْ، وَهِيَ خَرِبَةٌ كَٱنْقِلَابِ ٱلْغُرَبَاءِ. ٧ 7
Your country is ruined; your cities are burned; your fields—in your presence, strangers are destroying them— abandoned devastation, overthrown by strangers.
فَبَقِيَتِ ٱبْنَةُ صِهْيَوْنَ كَمِظَلَّةٍ فِي كَرْمٍ، كَخَيْمَةٍ فِي مَقْثَأَةٍ، كَمَدِينَةٍ مُحَاصَرَةٍ. ٨ 8
The daughter of Zion is left like a hut in a vineyard, like a shed in a garden of cucumbers, like a besieged city.
لَوْلَا أَنَّ رَبَّ ٱلْجُنُودِ أَبْقَى لَنَا بَقِيَّةً صَغِيرَةً، لَصِرْنَا مِثْلَ سَدُومَ وَشَابَهْنَا عَمُورَةَ. ٩ 9
If Yahweh of hosts had not left for us a small remnant, we would have been like Sodom, we would have been like Gomorrah.
اِسْمَعُوا كَلَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ يَا قُضَاةَ سَدُومَ! أَصْغُوا إِلَى شَرِيعَةِ إِلَهِنَا يَا شَعْبَ عَمُورَةَ: ١٠ 10
Hear the word of Yahweh, you rulers of Sodom; listen to the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah:
«لِمَاذَا لِي كَثْرَةُ ذَبَائِحِكُمْ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٱتَّخَمْتُ مِنْ مُحْرَقَاتِ كِبَاشٍ وَشَحْمِ مُسَمَّنَاتٍ، وَبِدَمِ عُجُولٍ وَخِرْفَانٍ وَتُيُوسٍ مَا أُسَرُّ. ١١ 11
“What is the multitude of your sacrifices to me?” says Yahweh. “I have had enough of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fatted beasts; and in the blood of bulls, lambs, or goats I do not delight.
حِينَمَا تَأْتُونَ لِتَظْهَرُوا أَمَامِي، مَنْ طَلَبَ هَذَا مِنْ أَيْدِيكُمْ أَنْ تَدُوسُوا دُورِي؟ ١٢ 12
When you come to appear before me, who has required this of you, to trample my courts?
لَا تَعُودُوا تَأْتُونَ بِتَقْدِمَةٍ بَاطِلَةٍ. ٱلْبَخُورُ هُوَ مَكْرَهَةٌ لِي. رَأْسُ ٱلشَّهْرِ وَٱلسَّبْتُ وَنِدَاءُ ٱلْمَحْفَلِ. لَسْتُ أُطِيقُ ٱلْإِثْمَ وَٱلِٱعْتِكَافَ. ١٣ 13
Bring no more meaningless offerings; incense is an abomination to me; your new moon and Sabbath assemblies—I cannot tolerate these wicked assemblies.
رُؤُوسُ شُهُورِكُمْ وَأَعْيَادُكُمْ بَغَضَتْهَا نَفْسِي. صَارَتْ عَلَيَّ ثِقْلًا. مَلِلْتُ حَمْلَهَا. ١٤ 14
I hate your new moons and your appointed feasts; they are a burden to me; I am tired of enduring them.
فَحِينَ تَبْسُطُونَ أَيْدِيَكُمْ أَسْتُرُ عَيْنَيَّ عَنْكُمْ، وَإِنْ كَثَّرْتُمُ ٱلصَّلَاةَ لَا أَسْمَعُ. أَيْدِيكُمْ مَلْآنَةٌ دَمًا. ١٥ 15
So when you spread out your hands in prayer, I hide my eyes from you; even though you offer many prayers, I will not listen; your hands are full of blood.
اِغْتَسِلُوا. تَنَقَّوْا. ٱعْزِلُوا شَرَّ أَفْعَالِكُمْ مِنْ أَمَامِ عَيْنَيَّ. كُفُّوا عَنْ فِعْلِ ٱلشَّرِّ. ١٦ 16
Wash, cleanse yourselves; remove the evil of your deeds from my sight; stop being evil;
تَعَلَّمُوا فَعْلَ ٱلْخَيْرِ. ٱطْلُبُوا ٱلْحَقَّ. ٱنْصِفُوا ٱلْمَظْلُومَ. ٱقْضُوا لِلْيَتِيمِ. حَامُوا عَنِ ٱلْأَرْمَلَةِ. ١٧ 17
learn to do good; seek justice, make straight the oppression, give justice to the fatherless, defend the widow.”
هَلُمَّ نَتَحَاجَجْ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ. إِنْ كَانَتْ خَطَايَاكُمْ كَٱلْقِرْمِزِ تَبْيَضُّ كَٱلثَّلْجِ. إِنْ كَانَتْ حَمْرَاءَ كَٱلدُّودِيِّ تَصِيرُ كَٱلصُّوفِ. ١٨ 18
“Come now, and let us reason together,” says Yahweh; “though your sins are like scarlet, they will be white like snow; though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool.
إِنْ شِئْتُمْ وَسَمِعْتُمْ تَأْكُلُونَ خَيْرَ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٩ 19
If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land,
وَإِنْ أَبَيْتُمْ وَتَمَرَّدْتُمْ تُؤْكَلُونَ بِٱلسَّيْفِ». لِأَنَّ فَمَ ٱلرَّبِّ تَكَلَّمَ. ٢٠ 20
but if you refuse and rebel, the sword will devour you,” for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken it.
كَيْفَ صَارَتِ ٱلْقَرْيَةُ ٱلْأَمِينَةُ زَانِيَةً! مَلآنَةً حَقًّا. كَانَ ٱلْعَدْلُ يَبِيتُ فِيهَا، وَأَمَّا ٱلْآنَ فَٱلْقَاتِلُونَ. ٢١ 21
How the faithful city has become a prostitute! She who was full of justice—she was full of righteousness, but now she is full of murderers.
صَارَتْ فِضَّتُكِ زَغَلًا وَخَمْرُكِ مَغْشُوشَةً بِمَاءٍ. ٢٢ 22
Your silver has become impure, your wine mixed with water.
رُؤَسَاؤُكِ مُتَمَرِّدُونَ وَلُغَفَاءُ ٱللُّصُوصِ. كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ مِنْهُمْ يُحِبُّ ٱلرَّشْوَةَ وَيَتْبَعُ ٱلْعَطَايَا. لَا يَقْضُونَ لِلْيَتِيمِ، وَدَعْوَى ٱلْأَرْمَلَةِ لَا تَصِلُ إِلَيْهِمْ. ٢٣ 23
Your princes are rebels and companions of thieves; everyone loves bribes and runs after payoffs. They do not defend the fatherless, nor does the widow's legal plea come before them.
لِذَلِكَ يَقُولُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ عَزِيزُ إِسْرَائِيلَ: «آهِ! إِنِّي أَسْتَرِيحُ مِنْ خُصَمَائِي وَأَنْتَقِمُ مِنْ أَعْدَائِي، ٢٤ 24
Therefore this is the declaration of the Lord Yahweh of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel: “Woe to them! I will take vengeance against my adversaries, and avenge myself against my enemies;
وَأَرُدُّ يَدِي عَلَيْكِ، وَأُنَقِّي زَغَلَكِ كَأَنَّهُ بِٱلْبَوْرَقِ، وَأَنْزِعُ كُلَّ قَصْدِيرِكِ، ٢٥ 25
I will turn my hand against you, refine away your dross as with lye, and take away all your dross.
وَأُعِيدُ قُضَاتَكِ كَمَا فِي ٱلْأَوَّلِ، وَمُشِيرِيكِ كَمَا فِي ٱلْبَدَاءَةِ. بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ تُدْعَيْنَ مَدِينَةَ ٱلْعَدْلِ، ٱلْقَرْيَةَ ٱلْأَمِينَةَ». ٢٦ 26
I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning; after that you will be called the city of righteousness, a faithful town.”
صِهْيَوْنُ تُفْدَى بِٱلْحَقِّ، وَتَائِبُوهَا بِٱلْبِرِّ. ٢٧ 27
Zion will be redeemed by justice, and her repentant ones by righteousness.
وَهَلَاكُ ٱلْمُذْنِبِينَ وَٱلْخُطَاةِ يَكُونُ سَوَاءً، وَتَارِكُو ٱلرَّبِّ يَفْنَوْنَ. ٢٨ 28
Rebels and sinners will be crushed together, and those who abandon Yahweh will be done away with.
لِأَنَّهُمْ يَخْجَلُونَ مِنْ أَشْجَارِ ٱلْبُطْمِ ٱلَّتِي ٱشْتَهَيْتُمُوهَا، وَتُخْزَوْنَ مِنَ ٱلْجَنَّاتِ ٱلَّتِي ٱخْتَرْتُمُوهَا. ٢٩ 29
“For you will be ashamed of the sacred oak trees that you desired, and you will be embarrassed by the gardens that you have chosen.
لِأَنَّكُمْ تَصِيرُونَ كَبُطْمَةٍ قَدْ ذَبُلَ وَرَقُهَا، وَكَجَنَّةٍ لَيْسَ لَهَا مَاءٌ. ٣٠ 30
For you will be like an oak whose leaf fades, and like a garden that has no water.
وَيَصِيرُ ٱلْقَوِيُّ مَشَاقَةً وَعَمَلُهُ شَرَارًا، فَيَحْتَرِقَانِ كِلَاهُمَا مَعًا وَلَيْسَ مَنْ يُطْفِئُ. ٣١ 31
The strong man will be like tinder, and his work like a spark; they will both burn together, and no one will quench them.”
