إِرْمِيَا 49

عَنْ بَنِي عَمُّونَ: «هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: أَلَيْسَ لِإِسْرَائِيلَ بَنُونَ، أَوْ لَا وَارِثٌ لَهُ؟ لِمَاذَا يَرِثُ مَلِكُهُمْ جَادَ، وَشَعْبُهُ يَسْكُنُ فِي مُدُنِهِ؟ ١ 1
About the people of Ammon, Yahweh says this, “Does Israel have no children? Is there no one to inherit anything in Israel? Why does Molech occupy Gad, and his people live in its cities?
لِذَلِكَ هَا أَيَّامٌ تَأْتِي، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، وَأُسْمِعُ فِي رَبَّةِ بَنِي عَمُّونَ جَلَبَةَ حَرْبٍ، وَتَصِيرُ تَّلًا خَرِبًا، وَتُحْرَقُ بَنَاتُهَا بِٱلنَّارِ، فَيَرِثُ إِسْرَائِيلُ ٱلَّذِينَ وَرِثُوهُ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٢ 2
So look, the days are coming—this is Yahweh's declaration—when I will sound the signal for battle against Rabbah among the people of Ammon, so it will become a deserted heap and its villages will be set on fire. For Israel will possess those who possessed him,” says Yahweh.
وَلْوِلِي يَاحَشْبُونُ لِأَنَّ عَايَ قَدْ خَرِبَتْ. اُصْرُخْنَ يَا بَنَاتِ رَبَّةَ. تَنَطَّقْنَ بِمُسُوحٍ. ٱنْدُبْنَ وَطَوِّفْنَ بَيْنَ ٱلْجُدْرَانِ، لِأَنَّ مَلِكَهُمْ يَذْهَبُ إِلَى ٱلسَّبْيِ هُوَ وَكَهَنَتُهُ وَرُؤَسَاؤُهُ مَعًا. ٣ 3
“Howl in lament, Heshbon, for Ai will be devastated! Shout out, daughters of Rabbah! Put on sackcloth. Lament and run about in futility, for Molech is going into captivity, together with his priests and leaders.
مَا بَالُكِ تَفْتَخِرِينَ بِٱلْأَوْطِيَةِ؟ قَدْ فَاضَ وَطَاؤُكِ دَمًا أَيَّتُهَا ٱلْبِنْتُ ٱلْمُرْتَدَّةُ وَٱلْمُتَوَكِّلَةُ عَلَى خَزَائِنِهَا، قَائِلَةً: مَنْ يَأْتِي إِلَيَّ؟ ٤ 4
Why do you brag about your valleys, your valleys that are so fruitful, faithless daughter? you who trust in your wealth and say, 'Who will come against me?'
هَأَنَذَا أَجْلِبُ عَلَيْكِ خَوْفًا، يَقُولُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ، مِنْ جَمِيعِ ٱلَّذِينَ حَوَالَيْكِ، وَتُطْرَدُونَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ إِلَى مَا أَمَامَهُ، وَلَيْسَ مَنْ يَجْمَعُ ٱلتَّائِهِينَ. ٥ 5
See, I am about to bring terror on you—this is the declaration of Lord Yahweh of hosts— this terror will come from all those who surround you. Each one of you will be scattered before it. There will be no one to gather those running away.
ثُمَّ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ أَرُدُّ سَبْيَ بَنِي عَمُّونَ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ». ٦ 6
But after this I will restore the fortunes of the people of Ammon—this is Yahweh's declaration.”
عَنْ أَدُومَ: «هَكَذَا قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ: أَلَا حِكْمَةَ بَعْدُ فِي تِيْمَانَ؟ هَلْ بَادَتِ ٱلْمَشُورَةُ مِنَ ٱلْفُهَمَاءِ؟ هَلْ فَرَغَتْ حِكْمَتُهُمْ؟ ٧ 7
About Edom, Yahweh of hosts says this, “Is there no longer any wisdom to be found in Teman? Has good advice disappeared from those who have understanding? Has their wisdom become corrupted?
اُهْرُبُوا. ٱلْتَفِتُوا. تَعَمَّقُوا فِي ٱلسَّكَنِ يَا سُكَّانَ دَدَانَ، لِأَنِّي قَدْ جَلَبْتُ عَلَيْهِ بَلِيَّةَ عِيسُو حِينَ عَاقَبْتُهُ. ٨ 8
Flee! Turn back! Stay in holes in the ground, inhabitants of Dedan. For I am bringing the disaster of Esau on him at the time that I punish him.
لَوْ أَتَاكَ ٱلْقَاطِفُونَ، أَفَمَا كَانُوا يَتْرُكُونَ عُلَالَةً؟ أَوِ ٱللُّصُوصُ لَيْلًا، أَفَمَا كَانُوا يُهْلِكُونَ مَا يَكْفِيهِمْ؟ ٩ 9
If grape harvesters came to you, would they not leave a little bit behind? If thieves came in the night, would they not steal only as much as they wanted?
وَلَكِنَّنِي جَرَّدْتُ عِيسُوَ، وَكَشَفْتُ مُسْتَتَرَاتِهِ فَلَا يَسْتَطِيعُ أَنْ يَخْتَبِئَ. هَلَكَ نَسْلُهُ وَإِخْوَتُهُ وَجِيرَانُهُ، فَلَا يُوجَدُ. ١٠ 10
But I have stripped Esau bare. I have revealed his hiding places. So he will not be able to hide himself. His children, his brothers, and his neighbors are destroyed, and he is gone.
اُتْرُكْ أَيْتَامَكَ أَنَا أُحْيِيهِمْ، وَأَرَامِلُكَ عَلَيَّ لِيَتَوَكَّلْنَ. ١١ 11
Leave your orphans behind. I will take care of their lives, and your widows can trust in me.”
لِأَنَّهُ هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: هَا إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ لَا حَقَّ لَهُمْ أَنْ يَشْرَبُوا ٱلْكَأْسَ قَدْ شَرِبُوا، فَهَلْ أَنْتَ تَتَبَرَّأُ تَبَرُّؤًا؟ لَا تَتَبَرَّأُ! بَلْ إِنَّمَا تَشْرَبُ شُرْبًا. ١٢ 12
For Yahweh says this, “See, those who did not deserve it must certainly drink some of the cup. Do you yourself think you will go without punishment? You will not, for you will certainly drink.
لِأَنِّي بِذَاتِي حَلَفْتُ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، إِنَّ بُصْرَةَ تَكُونُ دَهَشًا وَعَارًا وَخَرَابًا وَلَعْنَةً، وَكُلُّ مُدُنِهَا تَكُونُ خِرَبًا أَبَدِيَّةً. ١٣ 13
For I have sworn by myself—this is Yahweh's declaration—that Bozrah will become a horror, a disgrace, a devastation, and an object for cursing. All of its cities will become devastations forever.
قَدْ سَمِعْتُ خَبَرًا مِنْ قِبَلِ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَأُرْسِلَ رَسُولٌ إِلَى ٱلْأُمَمِ قَائِلًا: تَجَمَّعُوا وَتَعَالَوْا عَلَيْهَا، وَقُومُوا لِلْحَرْبِ. ١٤ 14
I have heard news from Yahweh, and a messenger has been sent out to the nations, 'Gather together and attack her. Get ready for battle.'
لِأَنِّي هَا قَدْ جَعَلْتُكَ صَغِيرًا بَيْنَ ٱلشُّعُوبِ، وَمُحْتَقَرًا بَيْنَ ٱلنَّاسِ. ١٥ 15
“For see, I have made you small compared to the other nations, despised by people.
قَدْ غَرَّكَ تَخْوِيفُكَ، كِبْرِيَاءُ قَلْبِكَ، يَاسَاكِنُ فِي مَحَاجِئِ ٱلصَّخْرِ، ٱلْمَاسِكَ مُرْتَفَعِ ٱلْأَكَمَةِ. وَإِنْ رَفَعْتَ كَنَسْرٍ عُشَّكَ، فَمِنْ هُنَاكَ أُحْدِرُكَ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ١٦ 16
As for your fearsomeness, your heart's pride has deceived you, inhabitants of places on the cliff, you who have occupied the highest hills so that you may make your nest high like an eagle. I will bring you down from there—this is Yahweh's declaration.
وَتَصِيرُ أَدُومُ عَجَبًا. كُلُّ مَارٍّ بِهَا يَتَعَجَّبُ وَيَصْفِرُ بِسَبَبِ كُلِّ ضَرَبَاتِهَا! ١٧ 17
Edom will become a horror to everyone passing by it. Every such person will tremble and hiss because all of its disasters.
كَٱنْقِلَابِ سَدُومَ وَعَمُورَةَ وَمُجَاوَرَاتِهِمَا، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، لَا يَسْكُنُ هُنَاكَ إِنْسَانٌ وَلَا يَتَغَرَّبُ فِيهَا ٱبْنُ آدَمَ. ١٨ 18
Like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighbors,” says Yahweh, “no one will live there; no person will stay there.
هُوَذَا يَصْعَدُ كَأَسَدٍ مِنْ كِبْرِيَاءِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ إِلَى مَرْعًى دَائِمٍ. لِأَنِّي أَغْمِزُ وَأَجْعَلُهُ يَرْكُضُ عَنْهُ. فَمَنْ هُوَ مُنْتَخَبٌ، فَأُقِيمَهُ عَلَيْهِ؟ لِأَنَّهُ مَنْ مِثْلِي؟ وَمَنْ يُحَاكِمُنِي؟ وَمَنْ هُوَ ٱلرَّاعِي ٱلَّذِي يَقِفُ أَمَامِي؟ ١٩ 19
See, he will go up like a lion from the forests of the Jordan to the green pasturelands. For I will quickly make Edom run from it, and I will put someone who will be chosen in charge of it. For who is like me, and who will summon me? What shepherd is able to resist me?”
لِذَلِكَ ٱسْمَعُوا مَشُورَةَ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّتِي قَضَى بِهَا عَلَى أَدُومَ، وَأَفْكَارَهُ ٱلَّتِي ٱفْتَكَرَ بِهَا عَلَى سُكَّانِ تِيمَانَ: إِنَّ صِغَارَ ٱلْغَنَمِ تَسْحَبُهُمْ. إِنَّهُ يَخْرِبُ مَسْكَنَهُمْ عَلَيْهِمْ. ٢٠ 20
“So listen to the plans that Yahweh has decided against Edom, the plans that he has formed against the inhabitants of Teman. They will certainly be dragged away, even the smallest flock. Their pasturelands will be turned into ruined places.
مِنْ صَوْتِ سُقُوطِهِمْ رَجَفَتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ. صَرْخَةٌ سُمِعَ صَوْتُهَا فِي بَحْرِ سُوفَ. ٢١ 21
At the sound of their falling the earth shakes. The sound of distressed shouts is heard at the Sea of Reeds.
هُوَذَا كَنَسْرٍ يَرْتَفِعُ وَيَطِيرُ وَيَبْسُطُ جَنَاحَيْهِ عَلَى بُصْرَةَ، وَيَكُونُ قَلْبُ جَبَابِرَةِ أَدُومَ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ كَقَلْبِ ٱمْرَأَةٍ مَاخِضٍ». ٢٢ 22
See, someone will attack like an eagle, and swoop down and spread his wings over Bozrah. Then on that day, the hearts of Edom's soldiers will become like the heart of a woman in birth labor.”
عَنْ دِمَشْقَ: «خَزِيَتْ حَمَاةُ وَأَرْفَادُ. قَدْ ذَابُوا لِأَنَّهُمْ قَدْ سَمِعُوا خَبَرًا رَدِيئًا. فِي ٱلْبَحْرِ ٱضْطِرَابٌ لَا يَسْتَطِيعُ ٱلْهُدُوءَ. ٢٣ 23
About Damascus: “Hamath and Arpad will be ashamed, for they have heard news of disaster. They melt away! They become as troubled as the sea, which cannot stay calm.
ٱرْتَخَتْ دِمَشْقُ وَٱلْتَفَتَتْ لِلْهَرَبِ. أَمْسَكَتْهَا ٱلرِّعْدَةُ، وَأَخَذَهَا ٱلضِّيقُ وَٱلْأَوْجَاعُ كَمَاخِضٍ. ٢٤ 24
Damascus has become very weak. It turns away to flee; terror seizes it. Distress and pain seize it, like the pain of a woman giving birth.
كَيْفَ لَمْ تُتْرَكِ ٱلْمَدِينَةُ ٱلشَّهِيرَةُ، قَرْيَةُ فَرَحِي؟ ٢٥ 25
How has the city of praise not been forsaken, the town of my joy?
لِذَلِكَ تَسْقُطُ شُبَّانُهَا فِي شَوَارِعِهَا، وَتَهْلِكُ كُلُّ رِجَالِ ٱلْحَرْبِ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ، يَقُولُ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ. ٢٦ 26
Therefore its young men will fall in its plazas, and all the fighting men will perish on that day—this is the declaration of Yahweh of hosts.”
وَأُشْعِلُ نَارًا فِي سُورِ دِمَشْقَ فَتَأْكُلُ قُصُورَ بَنْهَدَدَ». ٢٧ 27
“For I will light a fire on the wall of Damascus, and it will devour the strongholds of Ben Hadad.”
عَنْ قِيدَارَ وَعَنْ مَمَالِكِ حَاصُورَ ٱلَّتِي ضَرَبَهَا نَبُوخَذْرَاصَّرُ مَلِكُ بَابِلَ: «هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: قُومُوا ٱصْعَدُوا إِلَى قِيدَارَ. ٱخْرِبُوا بَنِي ٱلْمَشْرِقِ. ٢٨ 28
About Kedar and the kingdoms of Hazor, Yahweh says this to Nebuchadnezzar (now Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon was going to attack these places): “Arise and attack Kedar and destroy those people of the east.
يَأْخُذُونَ خِيَامَهُمْ وَغَنَمَهُمْ، وَيَأْخُذُونَ لِأَنْفُسِهِمْ شُقَقَهُمْ وَكُلَّ آنِيَتِهِمْ وَجِمَالَهُمْ، وَيُنَادُونَ إِلَيْهِمِ: ٱلْخَوْفَ مِنْ كُلِّ جَانِبٍ. ٢٩ 29
Their tents and their flocks will be taken, along with their tent curtains and all of their equipment; their camels will be led away from them, and men will shout to them, “Terror is on every side!”
«اُهْرُبُوا. ٱنْهَزِمُوا جِدًّا. تَعَمَّقُوا فِي ٱلسَّكَنِ يَاسُكَّانَ حَاصُورَ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، لِأَنَّ نَبُوخَذْرَاصَّرَ مَلِكَ بَابِلَ قَدْ أَشَارَ عَلَيْكُمْ مَشُورَةً، وَفَكَّرَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِكْرًا. ٣٠ 30
Flee! Wander far away! Stay in holes in the ground, inhabitants of Hazor—this is Yahweh's declaration— for Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon has devised a plan against you. Flee! Turn back!
قُومُوا ٱصْعَدُوا إِلَى أُمَّةٍ مُطْمَئِنَّةٍ سَاكِنَةٍ آمِنَةٍ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، لَا مَصَارِيعَ وَلَا عَوَارِضَ لَهَا. تَسْكُنُ وَحْدَهَا. ٣١ 31
Arise! Attack the nation at ease, that lives in safety,” says Yahweh. “They have no gates or bars in them, and its people live by themselves.
وَتَكُونُ جِمَالُهُمْ نَهْبًا، وَكَثْرَةُ مَاشِيَتِهِمْ غَنِيمَةً، وَأُذْرِي لِكُلِّ رِيحٍ مَقْصُوصِي ٱلشَّعْرِ مُسْتَدِيرًا، وَآتِي بِهَلَاكِهِمْ مِنْ كُلِّ جِهَاتِهِ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٣٢ 32
For their camels will become plunder, and the abundance of their property will become war plunder. Then I will scatter to every wind those who cut the corners of their hair, and I will bring disaster on them from every side—this is Yahweh's declaration.
وَتَكُونُ حَاصُورُ مَسْكَنَ بَنَاتِ آوَى، وَخَرِبَةً إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ. لَا يَسْكُنُ هُنَاكَ إِنْسَانٌ، وَلَا يَتَغَرَّبُ فِيهَا ٱبْنُ آدَمَ». ٣٣ 33
Hazor will become a lair of jackals, a permanent wasteland. No one will live there; no human being will stay there.”
كَلِمَةُ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّتِي صَارَتْ إِلَى إِرْمِيَا ٱلنَّبِيِّ عَلَى عِيلَامَ، فِي ٱبْتِدَاءِ مُلْكِ صِدْقِيَّا مَلِكِ يَهُوذَا قَائِلَةً: ٣٤ 34
This is the word of Yahweh that came to Jeremiah the prophet about Elam. This happened at the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, and he said,
«هَكَذَا قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ: هَأَنَذَا أُحَطِّمُ قَوْسَ عِيلَامَ أَوَّلَ قُوَّتِهِمْ. ٣٥ 35
“Yahweh of hosts says this: See, I am about to break the bowmen of Elam, the main part of their power.
وَأَجْلِبُ عَلَى عِيلَامَ أَرْبَعَ رِيَاحٍ مِنْ أَرْبَعَةِ أَطْرَافِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ، وَأُذْرِيهِمْ لِكُلِّ هَذِهِ ٱلرِّيَاحِ وَلَا تَكُونُ أُمَّةٌ إِلَّا وَيَأْتِي إِلَيْهَا مَنْفِيُّو عِيلَامَ. ٣٦ 36
For I will bring the four winds from the four corners of the heavens, and I will scatter the people of Elam to all of those winds. There is no nation to which those scattered from Elam will not go.
وَأَجْعَلُ ٱلْعِيلَامِيِّينَ يَرْتَعِبُونَ أَمَامَ أَعْدَائِهِمْ وَأَمَامَ طَالِبِي نُفُوسِهِمْ، وَأَجْلِبُ عَلَيْهِمْ شَرًّا، حُمُوَّ غَضَبِي، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ. وَأُرْسِلُ وَرَاءَهُمُ ٱلسَّيْفَ حَتَّى أُفْنِيَهُمْ. ٣٧ 37
So I will shatter Elam before their enemies and before those who seek their lives. for I will bring disaster against them, the fury of my wrath—this is Yahweh's declaration— and I will send the sword after them until I have annihilated them.
وَأَضَعُ كُرْسِيِّي فِي عِيلَامَ، وَأُبِيدُ مِنْ هُنَاكَ ٱلْمَلِكَ وَٱلرُّؤَسَاءَ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٣٨ 38
Then I will put my throne in Elam and will destroy its king and leaders from there—this is Yahweh's declaration—
«وَيَكُونُ فِي آخِرِ ٱلْأَيَّامِ أَنِّي أَرُدُّ سَبْيَ عِيلَامَ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ». ٣٩ 39
and it will happen in later days that I will bring back the fortunes of Elam—this is Yahweh's declaration.”
