أَيُّوبَ 42

فَأَجَابَ أَيُّوبُ ٱلرَّبَّ فَقَالَ: ١ 1
Then Job answered Yahweh and said,
«قَدْ عَلِمْتُ أَنَّكَ تَسْتَطِيعُ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ، وَلَا يَعْسُرُ عَلَيْكَ أَمْرٌ. ٢ 2
“I know that you can do all things, that no purpose of yours can be stopped.
فَمَنْ ذَا ٱلَّذِي يُخْفِي ٱلْقَضَاءَ بِلَا مَعْرِفَةٍ؟ وَلَكِنِّي قَدْ نَطَقْتُ بِمَا لَمْ أَفْهَمْ. بِعَجَائِبَ فَوْقِي لَمْ أَعْرِفْهَا. ٣ 3
'Who is this who without knowledge conceals plans?' Indeed, I have spoken things that I did not understand, things too difficult for me to understand, which I did not know about.
اِسْمَعِ ٱلْآنَ وَأَنَا أَتَكَلَّمُ. أَسْأَلُكَ فَتُعَلِّمُنِي. ٤ 4
You said to me, 'Listen, now, and I will speak; I will ask you things, and you will tell me.'
بِسَمْعِ ٱلْأُذُنِ قَدْ سَمِعْتُ عَنْكَ، وَٱلْآنَ رَأَتْكَ عَيْنِي. ٥ 5
I had heard about you by my ear's hearing, but now my eye sees you.
لِذَلِكَ أَرْفُضُ وَأَنْدَمُ فِي ٱلتُّرَابِ وَٱلرَّمَادِ». ٦ 6
So I despise myself; I repent in dust and ashes.”
وَكَانَ بَعْدَمَا تَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ مَعَ أَيُّوبَ بِهَذَا ٱلْكَلَامِ، أَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ قَالَ لِأَلِيفَازَ ٱلتَّيْمَانِيِّ: «قَدِ ٱحْتَمَى غَضَبِي عَلَيْكَ وَعَلَى كِلَا صَاحِبَيْكَ، لِأَنَّكُمْ لَمْ تَقُولُوا فِيَّ ٱلصَّوَابَ كَعَبْدِي أَيُّوبَ. ٧ 7
It came about that after he had said these words to Job, Yahweh said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “My wrath is kindled against you and against your two friends, for you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has done.
وَٱلْآنَ فَخُذُوا لِأَنْفُسِكُمْ سَبْعَةَ ثِيرَانٍ وَسَبْعَةَ كِبَاشٍ وَٱذْهَبُوا إِلَى عَبْدِي أَيُّوبَ، وَأَصْعِدُوا مُحْرَقَةً لِأَجْلِ أَنْفُسِكُمْ، وَعَبْدِي أَيُّوبُ يُصَلِّي مِنْ أَجْلِكُمْ، لِأَنِّي أَرْفَعُ وَجْهَهُ لِئَلَّا أَصْنَعَ مَعَكُمْ حَسَبَ حَمَاقَتِكُمْ، لِأَنَّكُمْ لَمْ تَقُولُوا فِيَّ ٱلصَّوَابَ كَعَبْدِي أَيُّوبَ». ٨ 8
Now therefore, take for yourselves seven bulls and seven rams, go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer, so that I may not deal with you after your folly. You have not said what is right about me, as my servant Job has done.”
فَذَهَبَ أَلِيفَازُ ٱلتَّيْمَانِيُّ وَبِلْدَدُ ٱلشُّوحِيُّ وَصُوفَرُ ٱلنَّعْمَاتِيُّ، وَفَعَلُوا كَمَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لَهُمْ. وَرَفَعَ ٱلرَّبُّ وَجْهَ أَيُّوبَ. ٩ 9
So Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as Yahweh had commanded them, and Yahweh accepted Job.
وَرَدَّ ٱلرَّبُّ سَبْيَ أَيُّوبَ لَمَّا صَلَّى لِأَجْلِ أَصْحَابِهِ، وَزَادَ ٱلرَّبُّ عَلَى كُلِّ مَا كَانَ لِأَيُّوبَ ضِعْفًا. ١٠ 10
When Job prayed for his friends, Yahweh restored his fortunes. Yahweh gave him twice as much as he had possessed before.
فَجَاءَ إِلَيْهِ كُلُّ إِخْوَتِهِ وَكُلُّ أَخَوَاتِهِ وَكُلُّ مَعَارِفِهِ مِنْ قَبْلُ، وَأَكَلُوا مَعَهُ خُبْزًا فِي بَيْتِهِ، وَرَثَوْا لَهُ وَعَزَّوْهُ عَنْ كُلِّ ٱلشَّرِّ ٱلَّذِي جَلَبَهُ ٱلرَّبُّ عَلَيْهِ، وَأَعْطَاهُ كُلٌّ مِنْهُمْ قَسِيطَةً وَاحِدَةً، وَكُلُّ وَاحِدٍ قُرْطًا مِنْ ذَهَبٍ. ١١ 11
Then all Job's brothers, and all his sisters, and all who knew him before, came to him and ate food with him in his house. They showed him sympathy and comforted him for all the disasters that Yahweh had brought upon him, and each of them gave Job a piece of silver and a ring of gold.
وَبَارَكَ ٱلرَّبُّ آخِرَةَ أَيُّوبَ أَكْثَرَ مِنْ أُولَاهُ. وَكَانَ لَهُ أَرْبَعَةَ عَشَرَ أَلْفًا مِنَ ٱلْغَنَمِ، وَسِتَّةُ آلَافٍ مِنَ ٱلْإِبِلِ، وَأَلْفُ فَدَّانٍ مِنَ ٱلْبَقَرِ، وَأَلْفُ أَتَانٍ. ١٢ 12
Yahweh blessed the final end of Job's life more than the first; he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys.
وَكَانَ لَهُ سَبْعَةُ بَنِينَ وَثَلَاثُ بَنَاتٍ. ١٣ 13
He also had seven sons and three daughters.
وَسَمَّى ٱسْمَ ٱلْأُولَى يَمِيمَةَ، وَٱسْمَ ٱلثَّانِيَةِ قَصِيعَةَ، وَٱسْمَ ٱلثَّالِثَةِ قَرْنَ هَفُّوكَ. ١٤ 14
He named the first daughter Jemimah, the second Keziah, and the third Keren-Happuch.
وَلَمْ تُوجَدْ نِسَاءٌ جَمِيلَاتٌ كَبَنَاتِ أَيُّوبَ فِي كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَأَعْطَاهُنَّ أَبُوهُنَّ مِيرَاثًا بَيْنَ إِخْوَتِهِنَّ. ١٥ 15
In all the land no women were found as beautiful as Job's daughters. Their father gave them an inheritance along with their brothers.
وَعَاشَ أَيُّوبُ بَعْدَ هَذَا مِئَةً وَأَرْبَعِينَ سَنَةً، وَرَأَى بَنِيهِ وَبَنِي بَنِيهِ إِلَى أَرْبَعَةِ أَجْيَالٍ. ١٦ 16
After this, Job lived 140 years; he saw his sons and his sons' sons, up to four generations.
ثُمَّ مَاتَ أَيُّوبُ شَيْخًا وَشَبْعَانَ ٱلْأَيَّامِ. ١٧ 17
Then Job died, being old and full of days.
