ايوب 14

«اَلْإِنْسَانُ مَوْلُودُ ٱلْمَرْأَةِ، قَلِيلُ ٱلْأَيَّامِ وَشَبْعَانُ تَعَبًا. ١ 1
Man that is born of a woman, is of few days, and full of trouble:
يَخْرُجُ كَٱلزَّهْرِ ثُمَّ يَنْحَسِمُ وَيَبْرَحُ كَٱلظِّلِّ وَلَا يَقِفُ. ٢ 2
As a flower, he cometh forth—and fadeth, He fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.
فَعَلَى مِثْلِ هَذَا حَدَّقْتَ عَيْنَيْكَ، وَإِيَّايَ أَحْضَرْتَ إِلَى ٱلْمُحَاكَمَةِ مَعَكَ. ٣ 3
And yet upon such a one as this, hast thou opened thine eye? And, him, wouldst thou bring into judgment with thee?
مَنْ يُخْرِجُ ٱلطَّاهِرَ مِنَ ٱلنَّجِسِ؟ لَا أَحَدٌ! ٤ 4
Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? Not one!
إِنْ كَانَتْ أَيَّامُهُ مَحْدُودَةً، وَعَدَدُ أَشْهُرِهِ عِنْدَكَ، وَقَدْ عَيَّنْتَ أَجَلَهُ فَلَا يَتَجَاوَزُهُ، ٥ 5
If determined am his days, the number of his months, is with thee, Fixed times for him, thou hast appointed and he cannot go beyond.
فَأَقْصِرْ عَنْهُ لِيَسْتَرِحْ، إِلَى أَنْ يُسَرَّ كَٱلْأَجِيرِ بِٱنْتِهَاءِ يَوْمِهِ. ٦ 6
Look sway from him, that he may rest, Till he shall pay off, as a hireling, his day.
«لِأَنَّ لِلشَّجَرَةِ رَجَاءً. إِنْ قُطِعَتْ تُخْلِفْ أَيْضًا وَلَا تُعْدَمُ خَرَاعِيبُهَا. ٧ 7
Though there is—for a tree—hope, —if it should be cut down, that, again, it will grow, and, the tender branch thereof, will not cease;
وَلَوْ قَدُمَ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ أَصْلُهَا، وَمَاتَ فِي ٱلتُّرَابِ جِذْعُهَا، ٨ 8
If its root, should become old in the earth, and, in the dust, its stock should die:
فَمِنْ رَائِحَةِ ٱلْمَاءِ تُفْرِخُ وَتُنْبِتُ فُرُوعًا كَٱلْغِرْسِ. ٩ 9
Through the scent of water, it may break forth, and produce branches like a sapling,
أَمَّا ٱلرَّجُلُ فَيَمُوتُ وَيَبْلَى. ٱلْإِنْسَانُ يُسْلِمُ ٱلرُّوحَ، فَأَيْنَ هُوَ؟ ١٠ 10
Yet, man, dieth, and is prostrate, Yea the son of earth doth cease to breathe, and where is he?
قَدْ تَنْفَدُ ٱلْمِيَاهُ مِنَ ٱلْبَحْرَةِ، وَٱلنَّهْرُ يَنْشَفُ وَيَجِفُّ، ١١ 11
Waters, have failed from, the sea, and, a river, may waste and dry up;
وَٱلْإِنْسَانُ يَضْطَجِعُ وَلَا يَقُومُ. لَا يَسْتَيْقِظُونَ حَتَّى لَا تَبْقَى ٱلسَّمَاوَاتُ، وَلَا يَنْتَبِهُونَ مِنْ نَوْمِهِمْ. ١٢ 12
So, a man, hath lain down, and shall not arise, until there are no heavens, they shall not awake, nor be roused up out of their sleep.
«لَيْتَكَ تُوارِينِي فِي ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ، وَتُخْفِينِي إِلَى أَنْ يَنْصَرِفَ غَضَبُكَ، وَتُعَيِّنُ لِي أَجَلًا فَتَذْكُرَنِي. (Sheol h7585) ١٣ 13
Oh that, in hades, thou wouldst hide me! that thou wouldst keep me secret, until the turn of thine anger, that thou wouldst set for me a fixed time, and remember me: (Sheol h7585)
إِنْ مَاتَ رَجُلٌ أَفَيَحْيَا؟ كُلَّ أَيَّامِ جِهَادِي أَصْبِرُ إِلَى أَنْ يَأْتِيَ بَدَلِي. ١٤ 14
If a man die, can he live again? All the days of my warfare, would I wait, until my relief should come: —
تَدْعُو فَأَنَا أُجِيبُكَ. تَشْتَاقُ إِلَى عَمَلِ يَدِكَ. ١٥ 15
Thou shouldst call, and, I, would answer thee, —For the work of thine own hand, thou shouldst long.
أَمَّا ٱلْآنَ فَتُحْصِي خَطَوَاتِي، أَلَا تُحَافِظُ عَلَى خَطِيَّتِي! ١٦ 16
For, now, my steps, thou countest, Thou wilt not pass over my sin:
مَعْصِيَتِي مَخْتُومٌ عَلَيْهَا فِي صُرَّةٍ، وَتُلَفِّقُ عَلَيَّ فَوْقَ إِثْمِي. ١٧ 17
Sealed up in a bag, is my transgression, and thou hast glued over mine iniquity.
«إِنَّ ٱلْجَبَلَ ٱلسَّاقِطَ يَنْتَثِرُ، وَٱلصَّخْرَ يُزَحْزَحُ مِنْ مَكَانِهِ. ١٨ 18
But, in very deed, a mountain falling, will lie prostrate, or, a rock moved out of its place:
ٱلْحِجَارَةُ تَبْلِيهَا ٱلْمِيَاهُ وَتَجْرُفُ سُيُولُهَا تُرَابَ ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَكَذَلِكَ أَنْتَ تُبِيدُ رَجَاءَ ٱلْإِنْسَانِ. ١٩ 19
Stones, have been hollowed out by waters, the floods thereof wash away the dust of the earth, and, the hope of mortal man, thou hast destroyed:
تَتَجَبَّرُ عَلَيْهِ أَبَدًا فَيَذْهَبُ. تُغَيِّرُ وَجْهَهُ وَتَطْرُدُهُ. ٢٠ 20
Thou dost overpower him utterly, and he departeth, Disfiguring his face, so, hast thou sent him away.
يُكْرَمُ بَنُوهُ وَلَا يَعْلَمُ، أَوْ يَصْغُرُونَ وَلَا يَفْهَمُ بِهِمْ. ٢١ 21
His sons, come to honour, and he knoweth it not, Or they are brought low, and he perceiveth it not of them.
إِنَّمَا عَلَى ذَاتِهِ يَتَوَجَّعُ لَحْمُهُ وَعَلَى ذَاتِهَا تَنُوحُ نَفْسُهُ». ٢٢ 22
But, his flesh, for himself, is in pain, and, his soul, for himself, doth mourn.
