إِرْمِيَا 1

كَلَامُ إِرْمِيَا بْنِ حَلْقِيَّا مِنَ ٱلْكَهَنَةِ ٱلَّذِينَ فِي عَنَاثُوثَ فِي أَرْضِ بَنْيَامِينَ، ١ 1
These are the words of Jeremiah son of Hilkiah, one of the priests at Anathoth in the land of Benjamin.
ٱلَّذِي كَانَتْ كَلِمَةُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَيْهِ فِي أَيَّامِ يُوشِيَّا بْنِ آمُونَ مَلِكِ يَهُوذَا، فِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلثَّالِثَةِ عَشْرَةَ مِنْ مُلْكِهِ. ٢ 2
The word of Yahweh came to him in the days of Josiah son of Amon, king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign.
وَكَانَتْ فِي أَيَّامِ يَهُويَاقِيمَ بْنِ يُوشِيَّا مَلِكِ يَهُوذَا، إِلَى تَمَامِ ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلْحَادِيَةِ عَشْرَةَ لِصِدْقِيَّا بْنِ يُوشِيَّا مَلِكِ يَهُوذَا، إِلَى سَبْيِ أُورُشَلِيمَ فِي ٱلشَّهْرِ ٱلْخَامِسِ. ٣ 3
It also came in the days of Jehoiakim son of Josiah, king of Judah, until the fifth month of the eleventh year of Zedekiah son of Josiah, king of Judah, when the people of Jerusalem were taken away as prisoners.
فَكَانَتْ كَلِمَةُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَيَّ قَائِلًا: ٤ 4
The word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
«قَبْلَمَا صَوَّرْتُكَ فِي ٱلْبَطْنِ عَرَفْتُكَ، وَقَبْلَمَا خَرَجْتَ مِنَ ٱلرَّحِمِ قَدَّسْتُكَ. جَعَلْتُكَ نَبِيًّا لِلشُّعُوبِ». ٥ 5
“Before I formed you in the womb, I chose you; before you came out from the womb I set you apart; I made you a prophet to the nations.”
فَقُلْتُ: «آهِ، يَا سَيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ، إِنِّي لَا أَعْرِفُ أَنْ أَتَكَلَّمَ لِأَنِّي وَلَدٌ». ٦ 6
“Ah, Lord Yahweh!” I said, “I do not know how to speak, for I am too young.”
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِي: «لَا تَقُلْ إِنِّي وَلَدٌ، لِأَنَّكَ إِلَى كُلِّ مَنْ أُرْسِلُكَ إِلَيْهِ تَذْهَبُ وَتَتَكَلَّمُ بِكُلِّ مَا آمُرُكَ بِهِ. ٧ 7
But Yahweh said to me, “Do not say, 'I am too young.' You must go everywhere I send you, and you must say whatever I command you!
لَا تَخَفْ مِنْ وُجُوهِهِمْ، لِأَنِّي أَنَا مَعَكَ لِأُنْقِذَكَ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ». ٨ 8
Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to rescue you—this is Yahweh's declaration.”
وَمَدَّ ٱلرَّبُّ يَدَهُ وَلَمَسَ فَمِي، وَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِي: «هَا قَدْ جَعَلْتُ كَلَامِي فِي فَمِكَ. ٩ 9
Then Yahweh reached out with his hand, touched my mouth, and said to me, “Now, I have placed my word in your mouth.
اُنْظُرْ! قَدْ وَكَّلْتُكَ هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمَ عَلَى ٱلشُّعُوبِ وَعَلَى ٱلْمَمَالِكِ، لِتَقْلَعَ وَتَهْدِمَ وَتُهْلِكَ وَتَنْقُضَ وَتَبْنِيَ وَتَغْرِسَ». ١٠ 10
I am appointing you today over nations and over kingdoms, to uproot and break down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and plant.”
ثُمَّ صَارَتْ كَلِمَةُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَيَّ قَائِلًا: «مَاذَا أَنْتَ رَاءٍ يَا إِرْمِيَا؟» فَقُلْتُ: «أَنَا رَاءٍ قَضِيبَ لَوْزٍ». ١١ 11
The word of Yahweh came to me, saying, “What do you see, Jeremiah?” I said, “I see an almond branch.”
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِي: «أَحْسَنْتَ ٱلرُّؤْيَةَ، لِأَنِّي أَنَا سَاهِرٌ عَلَى كَلِمَتِي لِأُجْرِيَهَا». ١٢ 12
Yahweh said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to carry it out.”
ثُمَّ صَارَتْ كَلِمَةُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَيَّ ثَانِيَةً قَائِلًا: «مَاذَا أَنْتَ رَاءٍ؟» فَقُلْتُ: «إِنِّي رَاءٍ قِدْرًا مَنْفُوخَةً، وَوَجْهُهَا مِنْ جِهَةِ ٱلشِّمَالِ». ١٣ 13
The word of Yahweh came to me a second time, saying, “What do you see?” I said, “I see a heated pot, whose surface is churning, tipping away from the north.”
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِي: «مِنَ ٱلشِّمَالِ يَنْفَتِحُ ٱلشَّرُّ عَلَى كُلِّ سُكَّانِ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٤ 14
Yahweh said to me, “Disaster will be opened up out of the north on all who live in this land.
لِأَنِّي هَأَنَذَا دَاعٍ كُلَّ عَشَائِرِ مَمَالِكِ ٱلشِّمَالِ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، فَيَأْتُونَ وَيَضَعُونَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ كُرْسِيَّهُ فِي مَدْخَلِ أَبْوَابِ أُورُشَلِيمَ، وَعَلَى كُلِّ أَسْوَارِهَا حَوَالَيْهَا، وَعَلَى كُلِّ مُدُنِ يَهُوذَا. ١٥ 15
For I am calling all the tribes of the northern kingdoms, declares Yahweh. They will come, and everyone will set his throne at the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem, against all the walls that surround it, and against all the cities of Judah.
وَأُقِيمُ دَعْوَايَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَرِّهِمْ، لِأَنَّهُمْ تَرَكُونِي وَبَخَّرُوا لِآلِهَةٍ أُخْرَى، وَسَجَدُوا لِأَعْمَالِ أَيْدِيهِمْ. ١٦ 16
I will pronounce sentence against them for all their evil in forsaking me, in burning incense to other gods, and in worshiping what they made with their own hands.
«أَمَّا أَنْتَ فَنَطِّقْ حَقْوَيْكَ وَقُمْ وَكَلِّمْهُمْ بِكُلِّ مَا آمُرُكَ بِهِ. لَا تَرْتَعْ مِنْ وُجُوهِهِمْ لِئَلَّا أُرِيعَكَ أَمَامَهُمْ. ١٧ 17
Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be shattered before them, or I will shatter you before them!
هَأَنَذَا قَدْ جَعَلْتُكَ ٱلْيَوْمَ مَدِينَةً حَصِينَةً وَعَمُودَ حَدِيدٍ وَأَسْوَارَ نُحَاسٍ عَلَى كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ، لِمُلُوكِ يَهُوذَا وَلِرُؤَسَائِهَا وَلِكَهَنَتِهَا وَلِشَعْبِ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٨ 18
Behold! Today I have made you a fortified city, an iron pillar, and bronze walls against the whole land—against the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests, and the people of the land.
فَيُحَارِبُونَكَ وَلَا يَقْدِرُونَ عَلَيْكَ، لِأَنِّي أَنَا مَعَكَ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، لِأُنْقِذَكَ». ١٩ 19
They will fight against you, but they will not defeat you, for I will be with you to rescue you—this is Yahweh's declaration.”
