إِرْمِيَا 26

فِي ٱبْتِدَاءِ مُلْكِ يَهُويَاقِيمَ بْنِ يُوشِيَّا مَلِكِ يَهُوذَا، صَارَ هَذَا ٱلْكَلَامُ مِنْ قِبَلِ ٱلرَّبِّ قَائِلًا: ١ 1
In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim son of Josiah, this word came from Yahweh, saying,
«هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: قِفْ فِي دَارِ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَتَكَلَّمْ عَلَى كُلِّ مُدُنِ يَهُوذَا ٱلْقَادِمَةِ لِلسُّجُودِ فِي بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ بِكُلِّ ٱلْكَلَامِ ٱلَّذِي أَوْصَيْتُكَ أَنْ تَتَكَلَّمَ بِهِ إِلَيْهِمْ. لَا تُنَقِّصْ كَلِمَةً. ٢ 2
“Yahweh says this: Stand in the courtyard of my house and speak about all the cities of Judah who come to worship at my house. Proclaim all the words that I have commanded you to say to them. Do not cut short any word!
لَعَلَّهُمْ يَسْمَعُونَ وَيَرْجِعُونَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ عَنْ طَرِيقِهِ ٱلشِّرِّيرِ، فَأَنْدَمَ عَنِ ٱلشَّرِّ ٱلَّذِي قَصَدْتُ أَنْ أَصْنَعَهُ بِهِمْ، مِنْ أَجْلِ شَرِّ أَعْمَالِهِمْ. ٣ 3
It may be that they will listen, that each man will turn from his wicked ways, so I will relent concerning the disaster that I am planning to bring on them because of the wickedness of their practices.
وَتَقُولُ لَهُمْ هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: إِنْ لَمْ تَسْمَعُوا لِي لِتَسْلُكُوا فِي شَرِيعَتِي ٱلَّتِي جَعَلْتُهَا أَمَامَكُمْ، ٤ 4
So you must say to them, 'Yahweh says this: If you do not listen to me so as to walk in my law that I have placed before you—
لِتَسْمَعُوا لِكَلَامِ عَبِيدِي ٱلْأَنْبِيَاءِ ٱلَّذِينَ أَرْسَلْتُهُمْ أَنَا إِلَيْكُمْ مُبَكِّرًا وَمُرْسِلًا إِيَّاهُمْ، فَلَمْ تَسْمَعُوا. ٥ 5
if you do not listen to the words of my servants the prophets whom I am persistently sending to you—but you have not listened!—
أَجْعَلُ هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتَ كَشِيلُوهَ، وَهَذِهِ ٱلْمَدِينَةُ أَجْعَلُهَا لَعْنَةً لِكُلِّ شُعُوبِ ٱلْأَرْضِ». ٦ 6
then I will make this house like Shiloh; I will turn this city into a curse in the sight of all the nations on earth.'”
وَسَمِعَ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ وَٱلْأَنْبِيَاءُ وَكُلُّ ٱلشَّعْبِ إِرْمِيَا يَتَكَلَّمُ بِهَذَا ٱلْكَلَامِ فِي بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٧ 7
The priests, the prophets, and all the people heard Jeremiah announcing these words in Yahweh's house.
وَكَانَ لَمَّا فَرَغَ إِرْمِيَا مِنَ ٱلتَّكَلُّمِ بِكُلِّ مَا أَوْصَاهُ ٱلرَّبُّ أَنْ يُكَلِّمَ كُلَّ ٱلشَّعْبِ بِهِ، أَنَّ ٱلْكَهَنَةَ وَٱلْأَنْبِيَاءَ وَكُلَّ ٱلشَّعْبِ أَمْسَكُوهُ قَائِلِينَ: «تَمُوتُ مَوْتًا! ٨ 8
So it happened that when Jeremiah had finished announcing all that Yahweh commanded him to say to all the people, the priests, prophets, and all the people seized him and said, “You will certainly die!
لِمَاذَا تَنَبَّأْتَ بِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ قَائِلًا: مِثْلَ شِيلُوهَ يَكُونُ هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتُ، وَهَذِهِ ٱلْمَدِينَةُ تَكُونُ خَرِبَةً بِلَا سَاكِنٍ؟». وَٱجْتَمَعَ كُلُّ ٱلشَّعْبِ عَلَى إِرْمِيَا فِي بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٩ 9
Why have you prophesied in Yahweh's name and said that this house will become like Shiloh and this city will become desolate, with no inhabitant?” For all the people had formed a mob against Jeremiah in Yahweh's house.
فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ رُؤَسَاءُ يَهُوذَا بِهَذِهِ ٱلْأُمُورِ، صَعِدُوا مِنْ بَيْتِ ٱلْمَلِكِ إِلَى بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ وَجَلَسُوا فِي مَدْخَلِ بَابِ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلْجَدِيدِ. ١٠ 10
Then the officials of Judah heard these words and went up from the king's house to Yahweh's house. They sat in the gateway at the New Gate of Yahweh's house.
فَتَكَلَّمَ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ وَٱلْأَنْبِيَاءُ مَعَ ٱلرُّؤَسَاءِ وَكُلِّ ٱلشَّعْبِ قَائِلِينَ: «حَقُّ ٱلْمَوْتِ عَلَى هَذَا ٱلرَّجُلِ لِأَنَّهُ قَدْ تَنَبَّأَ عَلَى هَذِهِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ كَمَا سَمِعْتُمْ بِآذَانِكُمْ». ١١ 11
The priests and the prophets spoke to the officials and to all the people. They said, “It is right for this man to die, for he prophesied against this city, just as you heard with your own ears!”
فَكَلَّمَ إِرْمِيَا كُلَّ ٱلرُّؤَسَاءِ وَكُلَّ ٱلشَّعْبِ قَائِلًا: «ٱلرَّبُّ أَرْسَلَنِي لِأَتَنَبَّأَ عَلَى هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتِ وَعَلَى هَذِهِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ بِكُلِّ ٱلْكَلَامِ ٱلَّذِي سَمِعْتُمُوهُ. ١٢ 12
So Jeremiah spoke to all the officials and all the people and said, “Yahweh has sent me out to prophesy against this house and this city, to say all the words that you have heard.
فَٱلْآنَ أَصْلِحُوا طُرُقَكُمْ وَأَعْمَالَكُمْ، وَٱسْمَعُوا لِصَوْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمْ، فَيَنْدَمَ ٱلرَّبُّ عَنِ ٱلشَّرِّ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ عَلَيْكُمْ. ١٣ 13
So now, improve your ways and your practices, and listen to the voice of Yahweh your God so that he will relent concerning the disaster that he has proclaimed against you.
أَمَّا أَنَا فَهَأَنَذَا بِيَدِكُمُ. ٱصْنَعُوا بِي كَمَا هُوَ حَسَنٌ وَمُسْتَقِيمٌ فِي أَعْيُنِكُمْ. ١٤ 14
I myself—look at me!—am in your hand. Do to me what is good and right in your eyes.
لَكِنِ ٱعْلَمُوا عِلْمًا أَنَّكُمْ إِنْ قَتَلْتُمُونِي، تَجْعَلُونَ دَمًا زَكِيًّا عَلَى أَنْفُسِكُمْ وَعَلَى هَذِهِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ وَعَلَى سُكَّانِهَا، لِأَنَّهُ حَقًّا قَدْ أَرْسَلَنِي ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَيْكُمْ لِأَتَكَلَّمَ فِي آذَانِكُمْ بِكُلِّ هَذَا ٱلْكَلَامِ». ١٥ 15
But you must surely know that if you kill me, then you are bringing innocent blood on yourselves and on this city and its inhabitants, for Yahweh has truly sent me to you to proclaim all these words for your ears.”
فَقَالَ ٱلرُّؤَسَاءُ وَكُلُّ ٱلشَّعْبِ لِلْكَهَنَةِ وَٱلْأَنْبِيَاءِ: «لَيْسَ عَلَى هَذَا ٱلرَّجُلِ حَقُّ ٱلْمَوْتِ، لِأَنَّهُ إِنَّمَا كَلَّمَنَا بِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِنَا». ١٦ 16
Then the officials and all the people said to the priests and prophets, “It is not right for this man to die, for he has proclaimed things to us in the name of Yahweh our God.”
فَقَامَ أُنَاسٌ مِنْ شُيُوخِ ٱلْأَرْضِ وَكَلَّمُوا كُلَّ جَمَاعَةِ ٱلشَّعْبِ قَائِلِينَ: ١٧ 17
Then men from the elders of the land rose up and spoke to the entire assembly of the people.
«إِنَّ مِيخَا ٱلْمُورَشْتِيَّ تَنَبَّأَ فِي أَيَّامِ حَزَقِيَّا مَلِكِ يَهُوذَا، وَكَلَّمَ كُلِّ شَعْبِ يَهُوذَا قَائِلًا: هَكَذَا قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ: إِنَّ صِهْيَوْنَ تُفْلَحُ كَحَقْلٍ وَتَصِيرُ أُورُشَلِيمُ خِرَبًا وَجَبَلُ ٱلْبَيْتِ شَوَامِخَ وَعْرٍ. ١٨ 18
They said, “Micah the Morashite was prophesying in the days of Hezekiah king of Judah. He spoke to all the people of Judah and said, 'Yahweh of hosts says this: Zion will become a plowed field, Jerusalem will become a heap of rubble, and the hill of the temple will become a thicket.'
هَلْ قَتْلًا قَتَلَهُ حَزَقِيَّا مَلِكُ يَهُوذَا وَكُلُّ يَهُوذَا؟ أَلَمْ يَخَفِ ٱلرَّبَّ وَطَلَبَ وَجْهَ ٱلرَّبِّ، فَنَدِمَ ٱلرَّبُّ عَنِ ٱلشَّرِّ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ عَلَيْهِمْ؟ فَنَحْنُ عَامِلُونَ شَرًّا عَظِيمًا ضِدَّ أَنْفُسِنَا». ١٩ 19
Did Hezekiah king of Judah and all of Judah put him to death? Did he not fear Yahweh and appease the face of Yahweh so that Yahweh would relent concerning the disaster that he proclaimed to them? So will we do greater evil against our own lives?”
وَقَدْ كَانَ رَجُلٌ أَيْضًا يَتَنَبَّأُ بِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ، أُورِيَّا بْنُ شِمْعِيَا مِن قَرْيَةِ يَعَارِيمَ، فَتَنَبَّأَ عَلَى هَذِهِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ وَعَلَى هَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضِ بِكُلِّ كَلَامِ إِرْمِيَا. ٢٠ 20
Meanwhile there was another man who prophesied in the name of Yahweh—Uriah son of Shemaiah from Kiriath Jearim—he also prophesied against this city and this land, agreeing with all of Jeremiah's words.
وَلَمَّا سَمِعَ ٱلْمَلِكُ يَهُويَاقِيمُ وَكُلُّ أَبْطَالِهِ وَكُلُّ ٱلرُّؤَسَاءِ كَلَامَهُ، طَلَبَ ٱلْمَلِكُ أَنْ يَقْتُلَهُ. فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ أُورِيَّا خَافَ وَهَرَبَ وَأَتَى إِلَى مِصْرَ. ٢١ 21
But when King Jehoiakim and all his soldiers and officials heard his word, then the king tried to put him to death, but Uriah heard and was afraid, so he ran away and went to Egypt.
فَأَرْسَلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ يَهُويَاقِيمُ أُنَاسًا إِلَى مِصْرَ، أَلْنَاثَانَ بْنَ عَكْبُورَ وَرِجَالًا مَعَهُ إِلَى مِصْرَ، ٢٢ 22
Then King Jehoiakim sent out men to go to Egypt—Elnathan son of Akbor and men to go into Egypt after Uriah.
فَأَخْرَجُوا أُورِيَّا مِنْ مِصْرَ وَأَتَوْا بِهِ إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ يَهُويَاقِيمَ، فَضَرَبَهُ بِٱلسَّيْفِ وَطَرَحَ جُثَّتَهُ فِي قُبُورِ بَنِي ٱلشَّعْبِ. ٢٣ 23
They took Uriah out from Egypt and brought him to King Jehoiakim. Then Jehoiakim killed him with a sword and sent his corpse out to the graves of the ordinary people.
وَلَكِنَّ يَدَ أَخِيقَامَ بْنِ شَافَانَ كَانَتْ مَعَ إِرْمِيَا حَتَّى لَا يُدْفَعَ لِيَدِ ٱلشَّعْبِ لِيَقْتُلُوهُ. ٢٤ 24
But the hand of Ahikam son of Shaphan was with Jeremiah, so he was not given into the hand of the people to be put to death.
