وَسَمِعَ فَشْحُورُ بْنُ إِمِّيرَ ٱلْكَاهِنُ، وَهُوَ نَاظِرٌ أَوَّلٌ فِي بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ، إِرْمِيَا يَتَنَبَّأُ بِهَذِهِ ٱلْكَلِمَاتِ.١1
Now Pashur the son of Immer the priest, who was also chief governor in the house of the LORD, heard that Jeremiah prophesied these things.
فَضَرَبَ فَشْحُورُ إِرْمِيَا ٱلنَّبِيَّ، وَجَعَلَهُ فِي ٱلْمِقْطَرَةِ ٱلَّتِي فِي بَابِ بِنْيَامِينَ ٱلْأَعْلَى ٱلَّذِي عِنْدَ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ.٢2
Then Pashur stroke Jeremiah the prophet, and put him in the stocks that were in the high gate of Benjamin, which was by the house of the LORD.
وَكَانَ فِي ٱلْغَدِ أَنَّ فَشْحُورَ أَخْرَجَ إِرْمِيَا مِنَ ٱلْمِقْطَرَةِ. فَقَالَ لَهُ إِرْمِيَا: «لَمْ يَدْعُ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱسْمَكَ فَشْحُورَ، بَلْ مَجُورَ مِسَّابِيبَ،٣3
And it came to pass on the next day, that Pashur brought forth Jeremiah out of the stocks. Then said Jeremiah unto him, The LORD has not called your name Pashur, but Magormissabib.
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 the LORD, Behold, I will make you a terror to yourself, and to all your friends: and they shall fall by the sword of their enemies, and yours eyes shall behold it: and I will give all Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall carry them captive into Babylon, and shall slay 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 deliver all the strength of this city, and all the labours thereof, and all the precious things thereof, and all the treasures of the kings of Judah will I give into the hand of their enemies, which shall spoil them, 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
And you, Pashur, and all that dwell in yours house shall go into captivity: and you shall come to Babylon, and there you shall die, and shall be buried there, you, and all your friends, to whom you have prophesied lies.
قَدْ أَقْنَعْتَنِي يَارَبُّ فَٱقْتَنَعْتُ، وَأَلْحَحْتَ عَلَيَّ فَغَلَبْتَ. صِرْتُ لِلضَّحِكِ كُلَّ ٱلنَّهَارِ. كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ ٱسْتَهْزَأَ بِي.٧7
O LORD, you have deceived me, and I was deceived; you are stronger than I, and have prevailed: I am in derision daily, every one mocks me.
لِأَنِّي كُلَّمَا تَكَلَّمْتُ صَرَخْتُ. نَادَيْتُ: «ظُلْمٌ وَٱغْتِصَابٌ!» لِأَنَّ كَلِمَةَ ٱلرَّبِّ صَارَتْ لِي لِلْعَارِ وَلِلسُّخْرَةِ كُلَّ ٱلنَّهَارِ.٨8
For since I spoke, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil; because the word of the LORD was made a reproach unto me, and a derision, daily.
فَقُلْتُ: «لَا أَذْكُرُهُ وَلَا أَنْطِقُ بَعْدُ بِٱسْمِهِ». فَكَانَ فِي قَلْبِي كَنَارٍ مُحْرِقَةٍ مَحْصُورَةٍ فِي عِظَامِي، فَمَلِلْتُ مِنَ ٱلْإِمْسَاكِ وَلَمْ أَسْتَطِعْ.٩9
Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.
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 heard the defaming of many, fear on every side. Report, say they, and we will report it. All my familiars watched for my halting, saying, Possibly he will be enticed, 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 the LORD is with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten.
فَيَارَبَّ ٱلْجُنُودِ، مُخْتَبِرَ ٱلصِّدِّيقِ، نَاظِرَ ٱلْكُلَى وَٱلْقَلْبِ، دَعْنِي أَرَى نَقْمَتَكَ مِنْهُمْ لِأَنِّي لَكَ كَشَفْتُ دَعْوَايَ.١٢12
But, O LORD of hosts, that try the righteous, and see the reins and the heart, let me see your vengeance on them: for unto you have I opened my cause.
رَنِّمُوا لِلرَّبِّ، سَبِّحُوا ٱلرَّبَّ، لِأَنَّهُ قَدْ أَنْقَذَ نَفْسَ ٱلْمِسْكِينِ مِنْ يَدِ ٱلْأَشْرَارِ.١٣13
Sing unto the LORD, praise all of you the LORD: for he has delivered the soul of the poor from the hand of evildoers.
مَلْعُونٌ ٱلْيَوْمُ ٱلَّذِي وُلِدْتُ فِيهِ! ٱلْيَوْمُ ٱلَّذِي وَلَدَتْنِي فِيهِ أُمِّي لَا يَكُنْ مُبَارَكًا!١٤14
Cursed be the day wherein I was born: let not the day wherein my mother bare me be blessed.
مَلْعُونٌ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ ٱلَّذِي بَشَّرَ أَبِي قَائِلًا: «قَدْ وُلِدَ لَكَ ٱبْنٌ» مُفَرِّحًا إِيَّاهُ فَرَحًا.١٥15
Cursed be the man who brought tidings to my father, saying, A male child is born unto you; making him very glad.
وَلْيَكُنْ ذَلِكَ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ كَٱلْمُدُنِ ٱلَّتِي قَلَبَهَا ٱلرَّبُّ وَلَمْ يَنْدَمْ، فَيَسْمَعَ صِيَاحًا فِي ٱلصَّبَاحِ وَجَلَبَةً فِي وَقْتِ ٱلظَّهِيرَةِ.١٦16
And let that man be as the cities which the LORD overthrew, and repented not: and let him hear the cry in the morning, and the shouting at noontide;
لِأَنَّهُ لَمْ يَقْتُلْنِي مِنَ ٱلرَّحِمِ، فَكَانَتْ لِي أُمِّي قَبْرِي وَرَحِمُهَا حُبْلَى إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ.١٧17
Because he slew me not from the womb; or that my mother might have been my grave, and her womb to be always great with me.
لِمَاذَا خَرَجْتُ مِنَ ٱلرَّحِم، لِأَرَى تَعَبًا وَحُزْنًا فَتَفْنَى بِٱلْخِزْيِ أَيَّامِي؟١٨18
Wherefore came I forth out of the womb to see labour and sorrow, that my days should be consumed with shame?
