إِرْمِيَا 50

ٱلْكَلِمَةُ ٱلَّتِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهَا ٱلرَّبُّ عَنْ بَابِلَ وَعَنْ أَرْضِ ٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ عَلَى يَدِ إِرْمِيَا ٱلنَّبِيِّ: ١ 1
This is the word that Yahweh declared about Babylon, the land of the Chaldeans, by the hand of Jeremiah the prophet,
«أَخْبِرُوا فِي ٱلشُّعُوبِ، وَأَسْمِعُوا وَٱرْفَعُوا رَايَةً. أَسْمِعُوا لَا تُخْفُوا. قُولُوا: أُخِذَتْ بَابِلُ. خَزِيَ بِيلُ. ٱنْسَحَقَ مَرُودَخُ. خَزِيَتْ أَوْثَانُهَا. ٱنْسَحَقَتْ أَصْنَامُهَا. ٢ 2
“Report to the nations and cause them to listen. Lift up a signal and cause them to listen. Do not conceal it. Say, 'Babylon is taken. Bel is made ashamed. Marduk is dismayed. Its idols are put to shame; its images are dismayed.'
لِأَنَّهُ قَدْ طَلَعَتْ عَلَيْهَا أُمَّةٌ مِنَ ٱلشِّمَالِ هِيَ تَجْعَلُ أَرْضَهَا خَرِبَةً فَلَا يَكُونُ فِيهَا سَاكِنٌ. مِنْ إِنْسَانٍ إِلَى حَيَوَانٍ هَرَبُوا وَذَهَبُوا. ٣ 3
A nation from the north will arise against it, and make her land a desolation. No one will live in it; both man and beast will flee away.
«فِي تِلْكَ ٱلْأَيَّامِ وَفِي ذَلِكَ ٱلزَّمَانِ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، يَأْتِي بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ هُمْ وَبَنُو يَهُوذَا مَعًا. يَسِيرُونَ سَيْرًا، وَيَبْكُونَ وَيَطْلُبُونَ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَهُمْ. ٤ 4
In those days and at that time—this is Yahweh's declaration—the people of Israel and the people of Judah will come together to go with weeping and seek Yahweh their God.
يَسْأَلُونَ عَنْ طَرِيقِ صِهْيَوْنَ، وَوُجُوهُهُمْ إِلَى هُنَاكَ، قَائِلِينَ: هَلُمَّ فَنَلْصَقُ بِٱلرَّبِّ بِعَهْدٍ أَبَدِيٍّ لَا يُنْسَى. ٥ 5
They will ask the way to Zion and will set off toward it, saying, We will go and join ourselves to Yahweh in an everlasting covenant that will not be forgotten.”
كَانَ شَعْبِي خِرَافًا ضَالَّةً، قَدْ أَضَلَّتْهُمْ رُعَاتُهُمْ. عَلَى ٱلْجِبَالِ أَتَاهُوهُمْ. سَارُوا مِنْ جَبَلٍ إِلَى أَكَمَةٍ. نَسُوا مَرْبَضَهُمْ. ٦ 6
My people have been a lost flock. Their shepherds have led them astray in the mountains; they have turned them around from hill to hill. They went, they forgot the place where they had lived.
كُلُّ ٱلَّذِينَ وَجَدُوهُمْ أَكَلُوهُمْ، وَقَالَ مُبْغِضُوهُمْ: لَا نُذْنِبُ مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّهُمْ أَخْطَأُوا إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ، مَسْكِنِ ٱلْبِرِّ وَرَجَاءِ آبَائِهِمِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٧ 7
Everyone who went out to them devoured them. Their adversaries said, 'We are not guilty, because they sinned against Yahweh, their true home—Yahweh, the hope of their ancestors.'
اُهْرُبُوا مِنْ وَسْطِ بَابِلَ وَٱخْرُجُوا مِنْ أَرْضِ ٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ، وَكُونُوا مِثْلَ كَرَارِيِزَ أَمَامَ ٱلْغَنَمِ. ٨ 8
Leave from the midst of Babylon; go out from the land of the Chaldeans; be like male goats that leave before the rest of the flock does.
«لِأَنِّي هَأَنَذَا أُوقِظُ وَأُصْعِدُ عَلَى بَابِلَ جُمْهُورَ شُعُوبٍ عَظِيمَةٍ مِنْ أَرْضِ ٱلشِّمَالِ، فَيَصْطَفُّونَ عَلَيْهَا. مِنْ هُنَاكَ تُؤْخَذُ. نِبَالُهُمْ كَبَطَلٍ مُهْلِكٍ لَا يَرْجِعُ فَارِغًا. ٩ 9
For see, I am about to set in motion and raise up a group of great nations from the north against Babylon. They will arrange themselves against her. Babylon will be captured from there. Their arrows are like a skilled warrior who does not return empty-handed.
وَتَكُونُ أَرْضُ ٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ غَنِيمَةً. كُلُّ مُغْتَنِمِيهَا يَشْبَعُونَ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ١٠ 10
Chaldea will become plunder. All those who plunder it will be satisfied—this is Yahweh's declaration.
لِأَنَّكُمْ قَدْ فَرِحْتُمْ وَشَمِتُّمْ يَا نَاهِبِي مِيرَاثِي، وَقَفَزْتُمْ كَعِجْلَةٍ فِي ٱلْكَلَإِ، وَصَهَلْتُمْ كَخَيْلٍ، ١١ 11
You rejoice, you celebrate the plundering of my inheritance; you jump around like a calf stamping in its pasture; you neigh like a powerful horse.
تَخْزَى أُمُّكُمْ جِدًّا. تَخْجَلُ ٱلَّتِي وَلَدَتْكُمْ. هَا آخِرَةُ ٱلشُّعُوبِ بَرِّيَّةٌ وَأَرْضٌ نَاشِفَةٌ وَقَفْرٌ. ١٢ 12
So your mother will be greatly ashamed; the one who bore you will be embarrassed. See, she will be the least of nations, a wilderness, a dry land, and a desert.
بِسَبَبِ سَخَطِ ٱلرَّبِّ لَا تُسْكَنُ، بَلْ تَصِيرُ خَرِبَةً بِٱلتَّمَامِ. كُلُّ مَارٍّ بِبَابِلَ يَتَعَجَّبُ وَيَصْفِرُ بِسَبَبِ كُلِّ ضَرَبَاتِهَا. ١٣ 13
Because of Yahweh's anger, Babylon will not be inhabited, but will be a complete devastation. Everyone who passes by will shudder because of Babylon and will hiss because all of its wounds.
اِصْطَفُّوا عَلَى بَابِلَ حَوَالَيْهَا يَا جَمِيعَ ٱلَّذِينَ يَنْزِعُونَ فِي ٱلْقَوْسِ. ٱرْمُوا عَلَيْهَا. لَا تُوَفِّرُوا ٱلسِّهَامَ لِأَنَّهَا قَدْ أَخْطَأَتْ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ. ١٤ 14
Arrange yourselves against Babylon all around her. Everyone who bends a bow must shoot at her. Do not keep back any of your arrows, for she has sinned against Yahweh.
ٱهْتِفُوا عَلَيْهَا حَوَالَيْهَا. قَدْ أَعْطَتْ يَدَهَا. سَقَطَتْ أُسُسُهَا. نُقِضَتْ أَسْوَارُهَا. لِأَنَّهَا نَقْمَةُ ٱلرَّبِّ هِيَ، فَٱنْقِمُوا مِنْهَا. كَمَا فَعَلَتِ ٱفْعَلُوا بِهَا. ١٥ 15
Raise a shout against her all around! She has surrendered; her towers have fallen; her walls are torn down, for this is Yahweh's vengeance. Take vengeance on her! Do to her just as she has done!
ٱقْطَعُوا ٱلزَّارِعَ مِنْ بَابِلَ، وَمَاسِكَ ٱلْمِنْجَلِ فِي وَقْتِ ٱلْحَصَادِ. مِنْ وَجْهِ ٱلسَّيْفِ ٱلْقَاسِي يَرْجِعُونَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ إِلَى شَعْبِهِ، وَيَهْرُبُونَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ إِلَى أَرْضِهِ. ١٦ 16
Destroy both the farmer who sows seed and the one who uses a sickle at the time of harvest in Babylon. Let each person turn back to his own people from the oppressor's sword; let them flee to their own land.
«إِسْرَائِيلُ غَنَمٌ مُتَبَدِّدَةٌ. قَدْ طَرَدَتْهُ ٱلسِّبَاعُ. أَوَّلًا أَكَلَهُ مَلِكُ أَشُّورَ، ثُمَّ هَذَا ٱلْأَخِيرُ، نَبُوخَذْرَاصَّرُ مَلِكُ بَابِلَ هَرَسَ عِظَامَهُ. ١٧ 17
Israel is a sheep scattered and driven away by lions. First the king of Assyria devoured him; then after this, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon broke his bones.
لِذَلِكَ هَكَذَا قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ: هَأَنَذَا أُعَاقِبُ مَلِكَ بَابِلَ وَأَرْضَهُ كَمَا عَاقَبْتُ مَلِكَ أَشُّورَ. ١٨ 18
Therefore Yahweh of hosts, the God of Israel, says this: See, I am about to punish the king of Babylon and his land, just as I punished the king of Assyria.
وَأَرُدُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى مَسْكَنِهِ، فَيَرْعَى كَرْمَلَ وَبَاشَانَ، وَفِي جَبَلِ أَفْرَايِمَ وَجِلْعَادَ تَشْبَعُ نَفْسُهُ. ١٩ 19
I will restore Israel to his homeland; he will graze on Carmel and Bashan. Then he will be satisfied in the hill country of Ephraim and Gilead.
فِي تِلْكَ ٱلْأَيَّامِ وَفِي ذَلِكَ ٱلزَّمَانِ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، يُطْلَبُ إِثْمُ إِسْرَائِيلَ فَلَا يَكُونُ، وَخَطِيَّةُ يَهُوذَا فَلَا تُوجَدُ، لِأَنِّي أَغْفِرُ لِمَنْ أُبْقِيهِ. ٢٠ 20
In those days and at that time, says Yahweh, iniquity will be looked for in Israel, but none will be found. I will inquire about the sins of Judah, but none will be found, for I will forgive the remnant that I spare.”
«اِصْعَدْ عَلَى أَرْضِ مِرَاثَايِمَ. عَلَيْهَا وَعَلَى سُكَّانِ فَقُودَ. ٱخْرِبْ وَحَرِّمْ وَرَاءَهُمْ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، وَٱفْعَلْ حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا أَمَرْتُكَ بِهِ. ٢١ 21
“Arise against the land of Merathaim, against it and the ones inhabiting Pekod. Put them to the sword and set them apart for destruction—this is Yahweh's declaration—do everything that I am commanding you.
صَوْتُ حَرْبٍ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَٱنْحِطَامٌ عَظِيمٌ. ٢٢ 22
The sounds of battle and enormous destruction are in the land.
كَيْفَ قُطِعَتْ وَتَحَطَّمَتْ مِطْرَقَةُ كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ؟ كَيْفَ صَارَتْ بَابِلُ خَرِبَةً بَيْنَ ٱلشُّعُوبِ؟ ٢٣ 23
How the hammer of all the lands has been cut apart and destroyed. How Babylon has become a destroyed place among the nations.
قَدْ نَصَبْتُ لَكِ شَرَكًا، فَعَلِقْتِ يَا بَابِلُ، وَأَنْتِ لَمْ تَعْرِفِي! قَدْ وُجِدْتِ وَأُمْسِكْتِ لِأَنَّكِ قَدْ خَاصَمْتِ ٱلرَّبَّ. ٢٤ 24
I have set a trap for you and you were taken, Babylon, and you did not know it! You were found and captured, because you opposed Yahweh.
فَتَحَ ٱلرَّبُّ خِزَانَتَهُ، وَأَخْرَجَ آلَاتِ رِجْزِهِ، لِأَنَّ لِلسَّيِّدِ رَبِّ ٱلْجُنُودِ عَمَلًا فِي أَرْضِ ٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ. ٢٥ 25
Yahweh has opened his armory and is bringing out the weapons for carrying out his anger. There is work for the Lord Yahweh of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans.
هَلُمَّ إِلَيْهَا مِنَ ٱلْأَقْصَى. ٱفْتَحُوا أَهْرَاءَهَا. كَوِّمُوهَا عِرَامًا، وَحَرِّمُوهَا وَلَا تَكُنْ لَهَا بَقِيَّةٌ. ٢٦ 26
Attack her from far away. Open her granaries and pile her up like heaps of grain. Set her apart for destruction. Leave no remnant of her.
أَهْلِكُوا كُلَّ عُجُولِهَا. لِتَنْزِلْ لِلذَّبْحِ. وَيْلٌ لَهُمْ لِأَنَّهُ قَدْ أَتَى يَوْمُهُمْ، زَمَانُ عِقَابِهِمْ. ٢٧ 27
Kill all her bulls. Send them down to the place of slaughter. Woe to them, for their day has come—the time for their punishment.
صَوْتُ هَارِبِينَ وَنَاجِينَ مِنْ أَرْضِ بَابِلَ، لِيُخْبِرُوا فِي صِهْيَوْنَ بِنَقْمَةِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِنَا، نَقْمَةِ هَيْكَلِهِ. ٢٨ 28
There is the sound of those fleeing, of those who are survivors, from the land of Babylon. These will report the vengeance of Yahweh our God for Zion, and vengeance for his temple.”
اُدْعُوا إِلَى بَابِلَ أَصْحَابَ ٱلْقِسِيِّ. لِيَنْزِلْ عَلَيْهَا كُلُّ مَنْ يَنْزِعُ فِي ٱلْقَوْسِ حَوَالَيْهَا. لَا يَكُنْ نَاجٍ. كَافِئُوهَا نَظِيرَ عَمَلِهَا. ٱفْعَلُوا بِهَا حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا فَعَلَتْ، لِأَنَّهَا بَغَتْ عَلَى ٱلرَّبِّ، عَلَى قُدُّوسِ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٢٩ 29
“Summon the archers against Babylon—all those who bend their bows. Camp against her, and let no one escape. Repay her for what she has done. Do to her by the measure she has used. For she had defied Yahweh, the Holy One of Israel.
لِذَلِكَ يَسْقُطُ شُبَّانُهَا فِي ٱلشَّوَارِعِ، وَكُلُّ رِجَالِ حَرْبِهَا يَهْلِكُونَ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٣٠ 30
So her young men will fall in the city squares, and all her fighting men will be destroyed on that day —this is Yahweh's declaration.”
هَأَنَذَا عَلَيْكِ أَيَّتُهَا ٱلْبَاغِيَةُ، يَقُولُ ٱلسَّيِّدُ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ، لِأَنَّهُ قَد أَتَى يَوْمُكِ حِينَ عِقَابِي إِيَّاكِ. ٣١ 31
“See, I am against you, proud one—this is the declaration of the Lord Yahweh of hosts— for your day has come, proud one, the time when I will punish you.
فَيَعْثُرُ ٱلْبَاغِي وَيَسقُطُ ولَا يَكُونُ لَهُ مَنْ يُقِيمُهُ، وَأُشْعِلُ نَارًا في مُدُنِهِ فَتَأْكُلُ كُلَّ مَا حَوَالَيْهَا. ٣٢ 32
So the proud ones will stumble and fall. No one will raise them up. I will light a fire in their cities; it will devour everything around him.
«هَكَذَا قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ: إِنَّ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ وَبَنِي يَهُوذَا مَعًا مَظْلُومُونَ، وَكُلُّ ٱلَّذِينَ سَبَوْهُمْ أَمْسَكُوهُمْ. أَبَوْا أَنْ يُطْلِقُوهُمْ. ٣٣ 33
Yahweh of hosts says this: The people of Israel are oppressed, together with the people of Judah. All the ones who captured them still hold them; they refuse to let them go.
وَلِيُّهُمْ قَوِيٌّ. رَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ ٱسْمُهُ. يُقِيمُ دَعْوَاهُمْ لِكَيْ يُرِيحَ ٱلْأَرْضَ وَيُزْعِجَ سُكَّانَ بَابِلَ. ٣٤ 34
The one who rescues them is strong. Yahweh of hosts is his name. He will truly plead their case, in order to bring rest to the land, and to bring strife to the ones inhabiting Babylon.
سَيْفٌ عَلَى ٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، وَعَلَى سُكَّانِ بَابِلَ، وَعَلَى رُؤَسَائِهَا، وَعَلَى حُكَمَائِهَا. ٣٥ 35
A sword is against the Chaldeans—this is Yahweh's declaration— and against the inhabitants of Babylon, her leaders, and her wise men.
سَيْفٌ عَلَى ٱلْمُخَادِعِينَ، فَيَصِيرُونَ حُمُقًا. سَيْفٌ عَلَى أَبْطَالِهَا فَيَرْتَعِبُونَ. ٣٦ 36
A sword against those who say empty words! They will become fools! A sword against her soldiers! They will be filled with terror.
سَيْفٌ عَلَى خَيْلِهَا وَعَلَى مَرْكَبَاتِهَا وَعَلَى كُلِّ ٱللَّفِيفِ ٱلَّذِي فِي وَسْطِهَا، فَيَصِيرُونَ نِسَاءً. سَيْفٌ عَلَى خَزَائِنِهَا فَتُنْهَبُ. ٣٧ 37
A sword is coming against their horses, their chariots and all of the people who are in the midst of Babylon, so they will become like women. A sword is coming against her storerooms, and they will be plundered.
حَرٌّ عَلَى مِيَاهِهَا فَتَنْشَفُ، لِأَنَّهَا أَرْضُ مَنْحُوتَاتٍ هِيَ، وَبِٱلْأَصْنَامِ تُجَنُّ. ٣٨ 38
A drought is coming on her waters, so they will become dry. For she is a land of worthless idols, and they act like people made insane by their dreadful idols.
لِذَلِكَ تَسْكُنُ وُحُوشُ ٱلْقَفْرِ مَعَ بَنَاتِ آوَى، وَتَسْكُنُ فِيهَا رِعَالُ ٱلنَّعَامِ، وَلَا تُسْكَنُ بَعْدُ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ، وَلَا تُعْمَرُ إِلَى دَوْرٍ فَدَوْرٍ. ٣٩ 39
So desert beasts with the jackals will inhabit there, and the young of ostriches will live in her. For all time, she will no longer be inhabited. From generation to generation, she will not be lived in.
كَقَلْبِ ٱللهِ سَدُومَ وَعَمُورَةَ وَمُجَاوَرَاتِهَا، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، لَا يَسْكُنُ هُنَاكَ إِنْسَانٌ، وَلَا يَتَغَرَّبُ فِيهَا ٱبْنُ آدَمَ. ٤٠ 40
Just as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighbors—this is Yahweh's declaration— no one will live there; no person will stay in her.”
هُوَذَا شَعْبٌ مُقْبِلٌ مِنَ ٱلشِّمَالِ، وَأُمَّةٌ عَظِيمَةٌ، وَيُوقَظُ مُلُوكٌ كَثِيرُونَ مِنْ أَقَاصِي ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٤١ 41
“See, a people is coming from the north; a great nation and many kings are being stirred up from the farthest parts of the earth.
يُمْسِكُونَ ٱلْقَوْسَ وَٱلرُّمْحَ. هُمْ قُسَاةٌ لَا يَرْحَمُونَ. صَوْتُهُمْ يَعِجُّ كَبَحْرٍ، وَعَلَى خَيْلٍ يَرْكَبُونَ، مُصْطَفِّينَ كَرَجُلٍ وَاحِدٍ لِمُحَارَبَتِكِ يَابِنْتَ بَابِلَ. ٤٢ 42
They will pick up bows and spears. They are cruel and have no compassion. Their sound is like the sea roar, and they are riding on horses, set out in order as men for battle, against you, daughter of Babylon.
سَمِعَ مَلِكُ بَابِلَ خَبَرَهُمْ فَٱرْتَخَتْ يَدَاهُ. أَخَذَتْهُ ٱلضِّيقَةُ وَٱلْوَجَعُ كَمَاخِضٍ. ٤٣ 43
The king of Babylon heard the reports about them and his hands fell limp in distress. Anguish seized him like a woman giving birth.
هَا هُوَ يَصْعَدُ كَأَسَدٍ مِنْ كِبْرِيَاءِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ إِلَى مَرْعًى دَائِمٍ. لِأَنِّي أَغْمِزُ وَأَجْعَلُهُمْ يَرْكُضُونَ عَنْهُ. فَمَنْ هُوَ مُنْتَخَبٌ فَأُقِيمَهُ عَلَيْهِ؟ لِأَنَّهُ مَنْ مِثْلِي؟ وَمَنْ يُحَاكِمُنِي؟ وَمَنْ هُوَ ٱلرَّاعِي ٱلَّذِي يَقِفُ أَمَامِي؟ ٤٤ 44
Behold! He goes up like a lion from the heights of the Jordan to the enduring grazing place For I will quickly cause them to 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 بَابِلَ، وَأَفْكَارَهُ ٱلَّتِي ٱفْتَكَرَ بِهَا عَلَى أَرْضِ ٱلْكَلْدَانِيِّينَ: إِنَّ صِغَارَ ٱلْغَنَمِ تَسْحَبُهُمْ. إِنَّهُ يَخْرِبُ مَسْكَنَهُمْ عَلَيْهِمْ. ٤٥ 45
So listen to the plans that Yahweh has decided against Babylon, the plans that he has planned against the land of the Chaldeans. They will certainly be dragged away, even the smallest flock. Their pasturelands will be turned into ruined places.
مِنَ ٱلْقَوْلِ: أُخِذَتْ بَابِلُ. رَجَفَتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ وَسُمِعَ صُرَاخٌ فِي ٱلشُّعُوبِ. ٤٦ 46
At the sound of conquered Babylon the earth shakes, and their shout of distress is heard among the nations.”
