ايوب 16

فَأَجَابَ أَيُّوبُ وَقَالَ: ١ 1
Then Job answered,
«قَدْ سَمِعْتُ كَثِيرًا مِثْلَ هَذَا. مُعَزُّونَ مُتْعِبُونَ كُلُّكُمْ! ٢ 2
"I have heard many such things. You are all miserable comforters.
هَلْ مِنْ نِهَايَةٍ لِكَلَامٍ فَارِغٍ؟ أَوْ مَاذَا يُهَيِّجُكَ حَتَّى تُجَاوِبَ؟ ٣ 3
Shall vain words have an end? Or what provokes you that you answer?
أَنَا أَيْضًا أَسْتَطِيعُ أَنْ أَتَكَلَّمَ مِثْلَكُمْ، لَوْ كَانَتْ أَنْفُسُكُمْ مَكَانَ نَفْسِي، وَأَنْ أَسْرُدَ عَلَيْكُمْ أَقْوَالًا وَأُنْغِضَ رَأْسِي إِلَيْكُمْ. ٤ 4
I also could speak as you do. If your soul were in my soul's place, I could join words together against you, and shake my head at you,
بَلْ كُنْتُ أُشَدِّدُكُمْ بِفَمِي، وَتَعْزِيَةُ شَفَتَيَّ تُمْسِكُكُمْ. ٥ 5
but I would strengthen you with my mouth. The solace of my lips would relieve you.
«إِنْ تَكَلَّمْتُ لَمْ تَمْتَنِعْ كَآبَتِي، وَإِنْ سَكَتُّ فَمَاذَا يَذْهَبُ عَنِّي؟ ٦ 6
"Though I speak, my grief is not subsided. Though I forbear, what am I eased?
إِنَّهُ ٱلْآنَ ضَجَّرَنِي. خَرَّبْتَ كُلَّ جَمَاعَتِي. ٧ 7
But now he has worn me out. You have laid waste all my company.
قَبَضْتَ عَلَيَّ. وُجِدَ شَاهِدٌ. قَامَ عَلَيَّ هُزَالِي يُجَاوِبُ فِي وَجْهِي. ٨ 8
You have shriveled me up. This is a witness against me. My leanness rises up against me. It testifies to my face.
غَضَبُهُ ٱفْتَرَسَنِي وَٱضْطَهَدَنِي. حَرَقَ عَلَيَّ أَسْنَانَهُ. عَدُوِّي يُحَدِّدُ عَيْنَيْهِ عَلَيَّ. ٩ 9
He has torn me in his wrath, and persecuted me. He has gnashed on me with his teeth. My adversary sharpens his eyes on me.
فَغَرُوا عَلَيَّ أَفْوَاهَهُمْ. لَطَمُونِي عَلَى فَكِّي تَعْيِيرًا. تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَيَّ جَمِيعًا. ١٠ 10
They have gaped on me with their mouth. They have struck me on the cheek reproachfully. They gather themselves together against me.
دَفَعَنِيَ ٱللهُ إِلَى ٱلظَّالِمِ، وَفِي أَيْدِي ٱلْأَشْرَارِ طَرَحَنِي. ١١ 11
God delivers me to the ungodly, and casts me into the hands of the wicked.
كُنْتُ مُسْتَرِيحًا فَزَعْزَعَنِي، وَأَمْسَكَ بِقَفَايَ فَحَطَّمَنِي، وَنَصَبَنِي لَهُ غَرَضًا. ١٢ 12
I was at ease, and he broke me apart. Yes, he has taken me by the neck, and dashed me to pieces. He has also set me up for his target.
أَحَاطَتْ بِي رُمَاتُهُ. شَقَّ كُلْيَتَيَّ وَلَمْ يُشْفِقْ. سَفَكَ مَرَارَتِي عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٣ 13
His archers surround me. He splits my kidneys apart, and does not spare. He pours out my gall on the ground.
يَقْتَحِمُنِي ٱقْتِحَامًا عَلَى ٱقْتِحَامٍ. يَعْدُو عَلَيَّ كَجَبَّارٍ. ١٤ 14
He breaks me with breach on breach. He runs on me like a giant.
خِطْتُ مِسْحًا عَلَى جِلْدِي، وَدَسَسْتُ فِي ٱلتُّرَابِ قَرْنِي. ١٥ 15
I have sewed sackcloth on my skin, and have thrust my horn in the dust.
اِحْمَرَّ وَجْهِي مِنَ ٱلْبُكَاءِ، وَعَلَى هُدْبِي ظِلُّ ٱلْمَوْتِ. ١٦ 16
My face is red with weeping. Deep darkness is on my eyelids.
مَعَ أَنَّهُ لَا ظُلْمَ فِي يَدِي، وَصَلَاتِي خَالِصَةٌ. ١٧ 17
Although there is no violence in my hands, and my prayer is pure.
«يَا أَرْضُ لَا تُغَطِّي دَمِي، وَلَا يَكُنْ مَكَانٌ لِصُرَاخِي. ١٨ 18
"Earth, do not cover my blood. Let my cry have no place to rest.
أَيْضًا ٱلْآنَ هُوَذَا فِي ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ شَهِيدِي، وَشَاهِدِي فِي ٱلْأَعَالِي. ١٩ 19
Even now, look, my witness is in heaven. He who vouches for me is on high.
ٱلْمُسْتَهْزِئُونَ بِي هُمْ أَصْحَابِي. لِلهِ تَقْطُرُ عَيْنِي ٢٠ 20
My friends scoff at me. My eyes pour out tears to God,
لِكَيْ يُحَاكِمَ ٱلْإِنْسَانَ عِنْدَ ٱللهِ كَٱبْنِ آدَمَ لَدَى صَاحِبِهِ. ٢١ 21
that he would maintain the right of a man with God, of a son of man with his neighbor.
إِذَا مَضَتْ سِنُونَ قَلِيلَةٌ أَسْلُكُ فِي طَرِيقٍ لَا أَعُودُ مِنْهَا. ٢٢ 22
For when a few years have come, I shall go the way from where I shall not return.
