إِرْمِيَا 19

هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «ٱذْهَبْ وَٱشْتَرِ إِبْرِيقَ فَخَّارِيٍّ مِنْ خَزَفٍ، وَخُذْ مِنْ شُيُوخِ ٱلشَّعْبِ وَمِنْ شُيُوخِ ٱلْكَهَنَةِ، ١ 1
Yahweh said this, “Go and purchase a potter's clay flask while you are with the elders of the people and the priests.
وَٱخْرُجْ إِلَى وَادِي ٱبْنِ هِنُّومَ ٱلَّذِي عِنْدَ مَدْخَلِ بَابِ ٱلْفَخَّارِ، وَنَادِ هُنَاكَ بِٱلْكَلِمَاتِ ٱلَّتِي أُكَلِّمُكَ بِهَا. ٢ 2
Then go out to the Valley of Ben Hinnom at the entry of the Broken Pottery Gate, and there proclaim the words that I will tell you.
وَقُلِ: ٱسْمَعُوا كَلِمَةَ ٱلرَّبِّ يَا مُلُوكَ يَهُوذَا وَسُكَّانَ أُورُشَلِيمَ. هَكَذَا قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ: هَأَنَذَا جَالِبٌ عَلَى هَذَا ٱلْمَوْضِعِ شَرًّا، كُلُّ مَنْ سَمِعَ بِهِ تَطِنُّ أُذْنَاهُ. ٣ 3
Say, 'Hear the word of Yahweh, kings of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem! Yahweh of hosts, God of Israel, says this, “See, I am about to bring disaster on this place, and the ears of everyone who hears of it will tingle.
مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّهُمْ تَرَكُونِي، وَأَنْكَرُوا هَذَا ٱلْمَوْضِعَ وَبَخَّرُوا فِيهِ لِآلِهَةٍ أُخْرَى لَمْ يَعْرِفُوهَا هُمْ وَلَا آبَاؤُهُمْ وَلَا مُلُوكُ يَهُوذَا، وَمَلَأُوا هَذَا ٱلْمَوْضِعَ مِنْ دَمِ ٱلْأَزْكِيَاءِ، ٤ 4
I will do this because they have abandoned me and profaned this place. In this place they offer sacrifices to other gods that they did not know. They, their ancestors, and the kings of Judah have also filled this place with innocent blood.
وَبَنَوْا مُرْتَفَعَاتٍ لِلْبَعْلِ لِيُحْرِقُوا أَوْلَادَهُمْ بِٱلنَّارِ مُحْرَقَاتٍ لِلْبَعْلِ، ٱلَّذِي لَمْ أُوْصِ وَلَا تَكَلَّمْتُ بِهِ وَلَا صَعِدَ عَلَى قَلْبِي. ٥ 5
They built the high places of Baal to burn their sons in the fire as burnt offerings to him—something that I did not command or mention, nor did it enter my mind.
لِذَلِكَ هَا أَيَّامٌ تَأْتِي، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، وَلَا يُدْعَى بَعْدُ هَذَا ٱلْمَوْضِعُ تُوفَةَ وَلَا وَادِي ٱبْنِ هِنُّومَ، بَلْ وَادِي ٱلْقَتْلِ. ٦ 6
Therefore, see, the days are coming—this is Yahweh's declaration—when this place will no longer be called Topheth, the Valley of Ben Hinnom, for it will be the Valley of Slaughter.
وَأَنْقُضُ مَشُورَةَ يَهُوذَا وَأُورُشَلِيمَ فِي هَذَا ٱلْمَوْضِعِ، وَأَجْعَلُهُمْ يَسْقُطُونَ بِٱلسَّيْفِ أَمَامَ أَعْدَائِهِمْ وَبِيَدِ طَالِبِي نُفُوسِهِمْ، وَأَجْعَلُ جُثَثَهُمْ أُكْلًا لِطُيُورِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَلِوُحُوشِ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٧ 7
In this place I will make the plans of Judah and Jerusalem useless. I will make them to fall by the sword before their enemies and by the hand of the ones seeking their lives. Then I will give their corpses as food to the birds of the heavens and the beasts of the earth.
وَأَجْعَلُ هَذِهِ ٱلْمَدِينَةَ لِلدَّهَشِ وَٱلصَّفِيرِ. كُلُّ عَابِرٍ بِهَا يَدْهَشُ وَيَصْفِرُ مِنْ أَجْلِ كُلِّ ضَرَبَاتِهَا. ٨ 8
Then I will make this city a ruin and the object of hissing, for everyone passing by it will shudder and hiss regarding all of its plagues.
وَأُطْعِمُهُمْ لَحْمَ بَنِيهِمْ وَلَحْمَ بَنَاتِهِمْ، فَيَأْكُلُونَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ لَحْمَ صَاحِبِهِ فِي ٱلْحِصَارِ وَٱلضِّيقِ ٱلَّذِي يُضَايِقُهُمْ بِهِ أَعْدَاؤُهُمْ وَطَالِبُو نُفُوسِهِمْ. ٩ 9
I will make them eat the flesh of their sons and daughters; each man will consume the flesh of his neighbor in the siege and in the anguish brought on them by their enemies and the ones seeking their lives.”'
ثُمَّ تَكْسِرُ ٱلْإِبْرِيقَ أَمَامَ أَعْيُنِ ٱلْقَوْمِ ٱلَّذِينَ يَسِيرُونَ مَعَكَ ١٠ 10
Then you will break the clay flask in the sight of the men who went with you.
وَتَقُولُ لَهُمْ: هَكَذَا قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ: هَكَذَا أَكْسِرُ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبَ وَهَذِهِ ٱلْمَدِينَةَ كَمَا يُكْسَرُ وِعَاءُ ٱلْفَخَّارِيِّ بِحَيْثُ لَا يُمْكِنُ جَبْرُهُ بَعْدُ، وَفِي تُوفَةَ يُدْفَنُونَ حَتَّى لَا يَكُونَ مَوْضِعٌ لِلدَّفْنِ. ١١ 11
You will say to them, 'Yahweh of hosts says this: I will do this same thing to this people and this city—this is Yahweh's declaration—just as Jeremiah shattered the clay flask so that it could not be repaired again. People will bury the dead in Topheth until there is no place left for any more dead.
هَكَذَا أَصْنَعُ لِهَذَا ٱلْمَوْضِعِ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، وَلِسُكَّانِهِ. وَأَجْعَلُ هَذِهِ ٱلْمَدِينَةَ مِثْلَ تُوفَةَ. ١٢ 12
This is what I will do to this place and its inhabitants when I make this city like Topheth—this is Yahweh's declaration—
وَتَكُونُ بُيُوتُ أُورُشَلِيمَ وَبُيُوتُ مُلُوكِ يَهُوذَا كَمَوْضِعِ تُوفَةَ، نَجِسَةً كُلُّ ٱلْبُيُوتِ ٱلَّتِي بَخَّرُوا عَلَى سُطُوحِهَا لِكُلِّ جُنْدِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَسَكَبُوا سَكَائِبَ لِآلِهَةٍ أُخْرَى». ١٣ 13
so the houses of Jerusalem and of the kings of Judah will become like Topheth—all the houses on whose rooftops the unclean people worship all the stars of the heavens and pour out drink offerings to other gods.'”
ثُمَّ جَاءَ إِرْمِيَا مِنْ تُوفَةَ ٱلَّتِي أَرْسَلَهُ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَيْهَا لِيَتَنَبَّأَ، وَوَقَفَ فِي دَارِ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ وَقَالَ لِكُلِّ ٱلشَّعْبِ: ١٤ 14
Then Jeremiah went from Topheth, where Yahweh had sent him to prophesy. He stood in the courtyard of Yahweh's house and he said to all the people,
«هَكَذَا قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ: هَأَنَذَا جَالِبٌ عَلَى هَذِهِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ وَعَلَى كُلِّ قُرَاهَا كُلَّ ٱلشَّرِّ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمْتُ بِهِ عَلَيْهَا، لِأَنَّهُمْ صَلَّبُوا رِقَابَهُمْ فَلَمْ يَسْمَعُوا لِكَلَامِي». ١٥ 15
“Yahweh of hosts, God of Israel, says this, 'See, I am about to bring to this city and to all of its towns all the disaster that I have proclaimed against it, since they stiffened their neck and refused to listen to my words.'”
