أَيُّوبَ 37

«فَلِهَذَا ٱضْطَرَبَ قَلْبِي وَخَفَقَ مِنْ مَوْضِعِهِ. ١ 1
Indeed, my heart trembles at this; it is moved out of its place.
ٱسْمَعُوا سَمَاعًا رَعْدَ صَوْتِهِ وَٱلزَّمْزَمَةَ ٱلْخَارِجَةَ مِنْ فِيهِ. ٢ 2
Hear, oh, hear the noise of his voice, the sound that goes out from his mouth.
تَحْتَ كُلِّ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ يُطْلِقُهَا، كَذَا نُورُهُ إِلَى أَكْنَافِ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٣ 3
He sends it out under the whole sky, and he sends out his lightning to the edges of the earth.
بَعْدُ يُزَمْجِرُ صَوْتٌ، يُرْعِدُ بِصَوْتِ جَلَالِهِ، وَلَا يُؤَخِّرُهَا إِذْ سُمِعَ صَوْتُهُ. ٤ 4
A voice roars after it; he thunders with the voice of his majesty; he does not restrain the lightning bolts when his voice is heard.
ٱللهُ يُرْعِدُ بِصَوْتِهِ عَجَبًا. يَصْنَعُ عَظَائِمَ لَا نُدْرِكُهَا. ٥ 5
God thunders marvelously with his voice; he does great things that we cannot comprehend.
لِأَنَّهُ يَقُولُ لِلثَّلْجِ: ٱسْقُطْ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ. كَذَا لِوَابِلِ ٱلْمَطَرِ، وَابِلِ أَمْطَارِ عِزِّهِ. ٦ 6
For he says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth'; likewise to the rain shower, 'Become a great shower of rain.'
يَخْتِمُ عَلَى يَدِ كُلِّ إِنْسَانٍ، لِيَعْلَمَ كُلُّ ٱلنَّاسِ خَالِقَهُمْ، ٧ 7
He stops the hand of every man from working, so that all people whom he has made may see his deeds.
فَتَدْخُلُ ٱلْحَيَوَانَاتُ ٱلْمَآوِيَ، وَتَسْتَقِرُّ فِي أَوْجِرَتِهَا. ٨ 8
Then the beasts go into hiding and stay in their dens.
مِنَ ٱلْجَنُوبِ يَأْتِي ٱلْإِعْصَارُ، وَمِنَ ٱلشَّمَالِ ٱلْبَرَدُ. ٩ 9
The storm comes from its chamber in the south and the cold from the scattering winds in the north.
مِنْ نَسَمَةِ ٱللهِ يُجْعَلُ ٱلْجَمْدُ، وَتَتَضَيَّقُ سِعَةُ ٱلْمِيَاهِ. ١٠ 10
By the breath of God ice is given; the expanse of the waters is frozen like metal.
أَيْضًا بِرِيٍّ يَطْرَحُ ٱلْغَيْمَ. يُبَدِّدُ سَحَابَ نُورِهِ. ١١ 11
Indeed, he weighs down the thick cloud with moisture; he scatters his lightning through the clouds.
فَهِيَ مُدَوَّرَةٌ مُتَقَلِّبَةٌ بِإِدَارَتِهِ، لِتَفْعَلَ كُلَّ مَا يَأْمُرُ بِهِ عَلَى وَجْهِ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلْمَسْكُونَةِ، ١٢ 12
He swirls the clouds around by his guidance, so that they may do whatever he commands them above the surface of the whole world.
سَوَاءٌ كَانَ لِلتَّأْدِيبِ أَوْ لِأَرْضِهِ أَوْ لِلرَّحْمَةِ يُرْسِلُهَا. ١٣ 13
He makes all of this happen; sometimes it happens for correction, sometimes for his land, and sometimes as acts of covenant faithfulness.
«اُنْصُتْ إِلَى هَذَا يَا أَيُّوبُ، وَقِفْ وَتَأَمَّلْ بِعَجَائِبِ ٱللهِ. ١٤ 14
Listen to this, Job; stop and think about God's marvelous deeds.
أَتُدْرِكُ ٱنْتِبَاهَ ٱللهِ إِلَيْهَا، أَوْ إِضَاءَةَ نُورِ سَحَابِهِ؟ ١٥ 15
Do you know how God establishes the clouds and makes the lightning bolts to flash in them?
أَتُدْرِكُ مُوازَنَةَ ٱلسَّحَابِ، مُعْجِزَاتِ ٱلْكَامِلِ ٱلْمَعَارِفِ؟ ١٦ 16
Do you understand the floating of the clouds, the marvelous deeds of God, who is perfect in knowledge?
كَيْفَ تَسْخُنُ ثِيَابُكَ إِذَا سَكَنَتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ مِنْ رِيحِ ٱلْجَنُوبِ؟ ١٧ 17
Do you understand how your garments become hot when the land is still because the wind comes from the south?
هَلْ صَفَّحْتَ مَعَهُ ٱلْجَلَدَ ٱلْمُمَكَّنَ كَٱلْمِرْآةِ ٱلْمَسْبُوكَةِ؟ ١٨ 18
Can you spread out the sky as he can— the sky, which is as strong as a mirror of cast metal?
عَلِّمْنَا مَا نَقُولُ لَهُ. إِنَّنَا لَا نُحْسِنُ ٱلْكَلَامَ بِسَبَبِ ٱلظُّلْمَةِ! ١٩ 19
Teach us what we should say to him, for we cannot lay out our arguments in order because of the darkness of our minds.
هَلْ يُقَصُّ عَلَيْهِ كَلَامِي إِذَا تَكَلَّمْتُ؟ هَلْ يَنْطِقُ ٱلْإِنْسَانُ لِكَيْ يَبْتَلِعَ؟ ٢٠ 20
Should he be told that I wish to speak with him? Would a person wish to be swallowed up?
وَٱلْآنَ لَا يُرَى ٱلنُّورُ ٱلْبَاهِرُ ٱلَّذِي هُوَ فِي ٱلْجَلَدِ، ثُمَّ تَعْبُرُ ٱلرِّيحُ فَتُنَقِّيهِ. ٢١ 21
Now, people cannot look at the sun when it is bright in the sky after the wind has passed through and has cleared it of its clouds.
مِنَ ٱلشَّمَالِ يَأْتِي ذَهَبٌ. عِنْدَ ٱللهِ جَلَالٌ مُرْهِبٌ. ٢٢ 22
Out of the north comes golden splendor— over God is fearsome majesty.
ٱلْقَدِيرُ لَا نُدْرِكُهُ. عَظِيمُ ٱلْقُوَّةِ وَٱلْحَقِّ، وَكَثِيرُ ٱلْبِرِّ. لَا يُجَاوِبُ. ٢٣ 23
As for the Almighty, we cannot find him! He is great in power; he does not oppress justice and abundant righteousness.
لِذَلِكَ فَلْتَخَفْهُ ٱلنَّاسُ. كُلَّ حَكِيمِ ٱلْقَلْبِ لَا يُرَاعِي». ٢٤ 24
Therefore, people fear him. He does not pay any attention to those who are wise in their own minds.”
