ايوب 17

«رُوحِي تَلِفَتْ. أَيَّامِي ٱنْطَفَأَتْ. إِنَّمَا ٱلْقُبُورُ لِي. ١ 1
"My spirit is consumed. My days are extinct, And the grave is ready for me.
«لَوْلَا ٱلْمُخَاتِلُونَ عِنْدِي، وَعَيْنِي تَبِيتُ عَلَى مُشَاجَرَاتِهِمْ. ٢ 2
Surely there are mockers with me. My eye dwells on their provocation.
كُنْ ضَامِنِي عِنْدَ نَفْسِكَ. مَنْ هُوَ ٱلَّذِي يُصَفِّقُ يَدِي؟ ٣ 3
"Now give a pledge, be collateral for me with yourself. Who is there who will strike hands with me?
لِأَنَّكَ مَنَعْتَ قَلْبَهُمْ عَنِ ٱلْفِطْنَةِ، لِأَجْلِ ذَلِكَ لَا تَرْفَعُهُمُ. ٤ 4
For you have hidden their heart from understanding, Therefore you shall not exalt them.
ٱلَّذِي يُسَلِّمُ ٱلْأَصْحَابَ لِلسَّلْبِ، تَتْلَفُ عُيُونُ بَنِيهِ. ٥ 5
He who denounces his friends for a prey, Even the eyes of his children shall fail.
أَوْقَفَنِي مَثَلًا لِلشُّعُوبِ، وَصِرْتُ لِلْبَصْقِ فِي ٱلْوَجْهِ. ٦ 6
"But he has made me a byword of the people. They spit in my face.
كَلَّتْ عَيْنِي مِنَ ٱلْحُزْنِ، وَأَعْضَائِي كُلُّهَا كَٱلظِّلِّ. ٧ 7
My eye also is dim by reason of sorrow. All my members are as a shadow.
يَتَعَجَّبُ ٱلْمُسْتَقِيمُونَ مِنْ هَذَا، وَٱلْبَرِئُ يَنْتَهِضُ عَلَى ٱلْفَاجِرِ. ٨ 8
Upright men shall be astonished at this. The innocent shall stir up himself against the godless.
أَمَّا ٱلصِّدِّيقُ فَيَسْتَمْسِكُ بِطَرِيقِهِ، وَٱلطَّاهِرُ ٱلْيَدَيْنِ يَزْدَادُ قُوَّةً. ٩ 9
Yet shall the righteous hold on his way. He who has clean hands shall grow stronger and stronger.
«وَلَكِنِ ٱرْجِعُوا كُلُّكُمْ وَتَعَالَوْا، فَلَا أَجِدُ فِيكُمْ حَكِيمًا. ١٠ 10
But as for you all, come on now again; I shall not find a wise man among you.
أَيَّامِي قَدْ عَبَرَتْ. مَقَاصِدِي، إِرْثُ قَلْبِي، قَدِ ٱنْتَزَعَتْ. ١١ 11
My days are past, my plans are broken off, as are the thoughts of my heart.
يَجْعَلُونَ ٱللَّيْلَ نَهَارًا، نُورًا قَرِيبًا لِلظُّلْمَةِ. ١٢ 12
They change the night into day, saying 'The light is near' in the presence of darkness.
إِذَا رَجَوْتُ ٱلْهَاوِيَةَ بَيْتًا لِي، وَفِي ٱلظَّلَامِ مَهَّدْتُ فِرَاشِي، (Sheol h7585) ١٣ 13
If I look for Sheol as my house, if I have spread my couch in the darkness, (Sheol h7585)
وَقُلْتُ لِلْقَبْرِ: أَنْتَ أَبِي، وَلِلدُّودِ: أَنْتَ أُمِّي وَأُخْتِي، ١٤ 14
If I have said to corruption, 'You are my father;' to the worm, 'My mother,' and 'my sister;'
فَأَيْنَ إِذًا آمَالِي؟ آمَالِي، مَنْ يُعَايِنُهَا؟ ١٥ 15
where then is my hope? As for my hope, who shall see it?
تَهْبِطُ إِلَى مَغَالِيقِ ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ إِذْ تَرْتَاحُ مَعًا فِي ٱلتُّرَابِ». (Sheol h7585) ١٦ 16
Shall it go down with me to the gates of Sheol, or descend together into the dust?" (Sheol h7585)
