أَيُّوبَ 10

«قَدْ كَرِهَتْ نَفْسِي حَيَاتِي. أُسَيِّبُ شَكْوَايَ. أَتَكَلَّمُ فِي مَرَارَةِ نَفْسِي ١ 1
I am weary of my life; I will give free expression to my complaint; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.
قَائِلًا لِلهِ: لَا تَسْتَذْنِبْنِي. فَهِّمْنِي لِمَاذَا تُخَاصِمُنِي! ٢ 2
I will say to God, 'Do not merely condemn me; show me why you accuse me.
أَحَسَنٌ عِنْدَكَ أَنْ تَظْلِمَ، أَنْ تُرْذِلَ عَمَلَ يَدَيْكَ، وَتُشْرِقَ عَلَى مَشُورَةِ ٱلْأَشْرَارِ؟ ٣ 3
Is it good to you that you should oppress me, to despise the work of your hands while you smile on the plans of the wicked?
أَلَكَ عَيْنَا بَشَرٍ، أَمْ كَنَظَرِ ٱلْإِنْسَانِ تَنْظُرُ؟ ٤ 4
Do you have eyes of flesh? Do you see like a man sees?
أَأَيَّامُكَ كَأَيَّامِ ٱلْإِنْسَانِ، أَمْ سِنُوكَ كَأَيَّامِ ٱلرَّجُلِ، ٥ 5
Are your days like the days of mankind or your years like the years of people,
حَتَّى تَبْحَثَ عَنْ إِثْمِي وَتُفَتِّشَ عَلَى خَطِيَّتِي؟ ٦ 6
that you inquire after my iniquity and search after my sin,
فِي عِلْمِكَ أَنِّي لَسْتُ مُذْنِبًا، وَلَا مُنْقِذَ مِنْ يَدِكَ. ٧ 7
although you know I am not guilty and there is no one who can rescue me from your hand?
«يَدَاكَ كَوَّنَتَانِي وَصَنَعَتَانِي كُلِّي جَمِيعًا، أَفَتَبْتَلِعُنِي؟ ٨ 8
Your hands have framed and fashioned me together round about, yet you are destroying me.
اُذْكُرْ أَنَّكَ جَبَلْتَنِي كَٱلطِّينِ، أَفَتُعِيدُنِي إِلَى ٱلتُّرَابِ؟ ٩ 9
Call to mind, I beg you, that you have fashioned me like clay; will you bring me into dust again?
أَلَمْ تَصُبَّنِي كَٱللَّبَنِ، وَخَثَّرْتَنِي كَٱلْجُبْنِ؟ ١٠ 10
Have you not poured me out like milk and curdled me like cheese?
كَسَوْتَنِي جِلْدًا وَلَحْمًا، فَنَسَجْتَنِي بِعِظَامٍ وَعَصَبٍ. ١١ 11
You have clothed me with skin and flesh and knit me together with bones and sinews.
مَنَحْتَنِي حَيَاةً وَرَحْمَةً، وَحَفِظَتْ عِنَايَتُكَ رُوحِي. ١٢ 12
You have granted me life and covenant faithfulness; your help has guarded my spirit.
لَكِنَّكَ كَتَمْتَ هَذِهِ فِي قَلْبِكَ. عَلِمْتُ أَنَّ هَذَا عِنْدَكَ: ١٣ 13
Yet these things you hid in your heart— I know that this is what you were thinking:
إِنْ أَخْطَأْتُ تُلَاحِظُنِي وَلَا تُبْرِئُنِي مِنْ إِثْمِي. ١٤ 14
that if I sinned, you would notice it; you would not acquit me of my iniquity.
إِنْ أَذْنَبْتُ فَوَيْلٌ لِي، وَإِنْ تَبَرَّرْتُ لَا أَرْفَعُ رَأْسِي. إِنِّي شَبْعَانُ هَوَانًا وَنَاظِرٌ مَذَلَّتِي. ١٥ 15
If I have acted wickedly, woe to me; and even if I acted righteously, I could not lift up my head, since I am filled with disgrace— see my affliction!
وَإِنِ ٱرْتَفَعْتُ تَصْطَادُنِي كَأَسَدٍ، ثُمَّ تَعُودُ وَتَتَجَبَّرُ عَلَيَّ. ١٦ 16
If my head were lifted up, you would stalk me like a lion; and again you would show yourself with marvellous acts of power against me.
تُجَدِّدُ شُهُودَكَ تُجَاهِي، وَتَزِيدُ غَضَبَكَ عَلَيَّ. نُوبٌ وَجَيْشٌ ضِدِّي. ١٧ 17
You bring new witnesses against me and increase your anger against me; you attack me with fresh armies.
«فَلِمَاذَا أَخْرَجْتَنِي مِنَ ٱلرَّحِمِ؟ كُنْتُ قَدْ أَسْلَمْتُ ٱلرُّوحَ وَلَمْ تَرَنِي عَيْنٌ! ١٨ 18
Why, then, have you brought me out of the womb? I wish I had given up my spirit and that no eye had ever seen me.
فَكُنْتُ كَأَنِّي لَمْ أَكُنْ، فَأُقَادَ مِنَ ٱلرَّحِمِ إِلَى ٱلْقَبْرِ. ١٩ 19
I would have been as though I had never existed; I would have been carried from the womb to the grave.
أَلَيْسَتْ أَيَّامِي قَلِيلَةً؟ ٱتْرُكْ! كُفَّ عَنِّي فَأَتَبَلَّجَ قَلِيلًا، ٢٠ 20
Are not my days only a few? Stop then, let me alone, so that I may have a little rest
قَبْلَ أَنْ أَذْهَبَ وَلَا أَعُودَ. إِلَى أَرْضِ ظُلْمَةٍ وَظِلِّ ٱلْمَوْتِ، ٢١ 21
before I go from where I will not return, to the land of darkness and of the shadow of death,
أَرْضِ ظَلَامٍ مِثْلِ دُجَى ظِلِّ ٱلْمَوْتِ وَبِلَا تَرْتِيبٍ، وَإِشْرَاقُهَا كَٱلدُّجَى». ٢٢ 22
the land that is as dark as midnight, the land of the shadow of death, without any order, where the light is like midnight.'”
