وَسَمِعَ فَشْحُورُ بْنُ إِمِّيرَ ٱلْكَاهِنُ، وَهُوَ نَاظِرٌ أَوَّلٌ فِي بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ، إِرْمِيَا يَتَنَبَّأُ بِهَذِهِ ٱلْكَلِمَاتِ.١1
Now Pashhur, the son of Immer the priest, who was chief officer in the house of YHWH, heard Jeremiah prophesying these things.
فَضَرَبَ فَشْحُورُ إِرْمِيَا ٱلنَّبِيَّ، وَجَعَلَهُ فِي ٱلْمِقْطَرَةِ ٱلَّتِي فِي بَابِ بِنْيَامِينَ ٱلْأَعْلَى ٱلَّذِي عِنْدَ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ.٢2
Then Pashhur struck Jeremiah the prophet, and put him in the stocks that were in the Upper Gate of Benjamin, which was in the house of YHWH.
وَكَانَ فِي ٱلْغَدِ أَنَّ فَشْحُورَ أَخْرَجَ إِرْمِيَا مِنَ ٱلْمِقْطَرَةِ. فَقَالَ لَهُ إِرْمِيَا: «لَمْ يَدْعُ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱسْمَكَ فَشْحُورَ، بَلْ مَجُورَ مِسَّابِيبَ،٣3
It happened on the next day, that Pashhur brought forth Jeremiah out of the stocks. Then Jeremiah said to him, "YHWH has not called your name 'Pashhur,' but 'Magor-Missabib.'
لِأَنَّهُ هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: هَأَنَذَا أَجْعَلُكَ خَوْفًا لِنَفْسِكَ وَلِكُلِّ مُحِبِّيكَ، فَيَسْقُطُونَ بِسَيْفِ أَعْدَائِهِمْ وَعَيْنَاكَ تَنْظُرَانِ، وَأَدْفَعُ كُلَّ يَهُوذَا لِيَدِ مَلِكِ بَابِلَ فَيَسْبِيهِمْ إِلَى بَابِلَ وَيَضْرِبُهُمْ بِٱلسَّيْفِ.٤4
For thus says YHWH, 'Look, I will make you a terror to yourself, and to all your friends; and they shall fall by the sword of their enemies, and your eyes shall see it; and I will give all Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall carry them captive to Babylon, and shall kill them with the sword.
وَأَدْفَعُ كُلَّ ثَرْوَةِ هَذِهِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ وَكُلَّ تَعَبِهَا وَكُلَّ مُثَمَّنَاتِهَا وَكُلَّ خَزَائِنِ مُلُوكِ يَهُوذَا، أَدْفَعُهَا لِيَدِ أَعْدَائِهِمْ، فَيَغْنَمُونَهَا وَيَأْخُذُونَهَا وَيُحْضِرُونَهَا إِلَى بَابِلَ.٥5
Moreover I will give all the riches of this city, and all its gains, and all the precious things of it, yes, all the treasures of the kings of Judah will I give into the hand of their enemies; and they shall make them a prey, and take them, and carry them to Babylon.
وَأَنْتَ يَافَشْحُورُ وَكُلُّ سُكَّانِ بَيْتِكَ تَذْهَبُونَ فِي ٱلسَّبْيِ، وَتَأْتِي إِلَى بَابِلَ وَهُنَاكَ تَمُوتُ، وَهُنَاكَ تُدْفَنُ أَنْتَ وَكُلُّ مُحِبِّيكَ ٱلَّذِينَ تَنَبَّأْتَ لَهُمْ بِٱلْكَذِبِ».٦6
You, Pashhur, and all who dwell in your house shall go into captivity; and you shall come to Babylon, and there you shall die, and there you shall be buried, you, and all your friends, to whom you have prophesied falsely.'"
قَدْ أَقْنَعْتَنِي يَارَبُّ فَٱقْتَنَعْتُ، وَأَلْحَحْتَ عَلَيَّ فَغَلَبْتَ. صِرْتُ لِلضَّحِكِ كُلَّ ٱلنَّهَارِ. كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ ٱسْتَهْزَأَ بِي.٧7
YHWH, you have persuaded me, and I was persuaded. You are stronger than I am, and have prevailed. I have become a laughing-stock all day long; everyone mocks me.
لِأَنِّي كُلَّمَا تَكَلَّمْتُ صَرَخْتُ. نَادَيْتُ: «ظُلْمٌ وَٱغْتِصَابٌ!» لِأَنَّ كَلِمَةَ ٱلرَّبِّ صَارَتْ لِي لِلْعَارِ وَلِلسُّخْرَةِ كُلَّ ٱلنَّهَارِ.٨8
For as often as I speak, I cry out; I cry, "Violence and destruction." because the word of YHWH is made a reproach to me, and a derision, all the day.
فَقُلْتُ: «لَا أَذْكُرُهُ وَلَا أَنْطِقُ بَعْدُ بِٱسْمِهِ». فَكَانَ فِي قَلْبِي كَنَارٍ مُحْرِقَةٍ مَحْصُورَةٍ فِي عِظَامِي، فَمَلِلْتُ مِنَ ٱلْإِمْسَاكِ وَلَمْ أَسْتَطِعْ.٩9
If I say, "I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name," then there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I am weary with forbearing, and I can't contain it.
لِأَنِّي سَمِعْتُ مَذَمَّةً مِنْ كَثِيرِينَ. خَوْفٌ مِنْ كُلِّ جَانِبٍ. يَقُولُونَ: «ٱشْتَكُوا، فَنَشْتَكِيَ عَلَيْهِ». كُلُّ أَصْحَابِي يُرَاقِبُونَ ظَلْعِي قَائِلِينَ: «لَعَلَّهُ يُطْغَى فَنَقْدِرَ عَلَيْهِ وَنَنْتَقِمَ مِنْهُ».١٠10
For I have heard the defaming of many, terror on every side. "Denounce, and we will denounce him," say all my familiar friends, those who watch for my fall; "perhaps he will be persuaded, and we shall prevail against him, and we shall take our revenge on him."
وَلَكِنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ مَعِي كَجَبَّارٍ قَدِيرٍ. مِنْ أَجْلِ ذَلِكَ يَعْثُرُ مُضْطَهِدِيَّ وَلَا يَقْدِرُونَ. خَزُوا جِدًّا لِأَنَّهُمْ لَمْ يَنْجَحُوا، خِزْيًا أَبَدِيًّا لَا يُنْسَى.١١11
But YHWH is with me as an awesome mighty one: therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail; they shall be utterly disappointed, because they have not dealt wisely, even with an everlasting dishonor which shall never be forgotten.
فَيَارَبَّ ٱلْجُنُودِ، مُخْتَبِرَ ٱلصِّدِّيقِ، نَاظِرَ ٱلْكُلَى وَٱلْقَلْبِ، دَعْنِي أَرَى نَقْمَتَكَ مِنْهُمْ لِأَنِّي لَكَ كَشَفْتُ دَعْوَايَ.١٢12
But, YHWH of hosts, who tests the righteous, who sees the heart and the mind, let me see your vengeance on them; for to you have I revealed my cause.
رَنِّمُوا لِلرَّبِّ، سَبِّحُوا ٱلرَّبَّ، لِأَنَّهُ قَدْ أَنْقَذَ نَفْسَ ٱلْمِسْكِينِ مِنْ يَدِ ٱلْأَشْرَارِ.١٣13
Sing to YHWH, praise YHWH; for he has delivered the soul of the needy from the hand of evildoers.
مَلْعُونٌ ٱلْيَوْمُ ٱلَّذِي وُلِدْتُ فِيهِ! ٱلْيَوْمُ ٱلَّذِي وَلَدَتْنِي فِيهِ أُمِّي لَا يَكُنْ مُبَارَكًا!١٤14
Cursed is the day in which I was born: do not let the day in which my mother bore me be blessed.
مَلْعُونٌ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ ٱلَّذِي بَشَّرَ أَبِي قَائِلًا: «قَدْ وُلِدَ لَكَ ٱبْنٌ» مُفَرِّحًا إِيَّاهُ فَرَحًا.١٥15
Cursed is the man who brought news to my father, saying, A boy is born to you; making him very glad.
وَلْيَكُنْ ذَلِكَ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ كَٱلْمُدُنِ ٱلَّتِي قَلَبَهَا ٱلرَّبُّ وَلَمْ يَنْدَمْ، فَيَسْمَعَ صِيَاحًا فِي ٱلصَّبَاحِ وَجَلَبَةً فِي وَقْتِ ٱلظَّهِيرَةِ.١٦16
Let that man be as the cities which YHWH overthrew, and did not repent: and let him hear a cry in the morning, and shouting at noontime;
لِأَنَّهُ لَمْ يَقْتُلْنِي مِنَ ٱلرَّحِمِ، فَكَانَتْ لِي أُمِّي قَبْرِي وَرَحِمُهَا حُبْلَى إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ.١٧17
because he did not kill me from the womb; and so my mother would have been my grave, and her womb always great.
لِمَاذَا خَرَجْتُ مِنَ ٱلرَّحِم، لِأَرَى تَعَبًا وَحُزْنًا فَتَفْنَى بِٱلْخِزْيِ أَيَّامِي؟١٨18
Why came I forth out of the womb to see labor and sorrow, that my days should be consumed with shame?
