يُوئِيل 2

اِضْرِبُوا بِٱلْبُوقِ فِي صِهْيَوْنَ. صَوِّتُوا فِي جَبَلِ قُدْسِي! لِيَرْتَعِدْ جَمِيعُ سُكَّانِ ٱلْأَرْضِ لِأَنَّ يَوْمَ ٱلرَّبِّ قَادِمٌ، لِأَنَّهُ قَرِيبٌ: ١ 1
Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm on my holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble in fear, for the day of Yahweh is coming; indeed, it is near.
يَوْمُ ظَلَامٍ وَقَتَامٍ، يَوْمُ غَيْمٍ وَضَبَابٍ، مِثْلَ ٱلْفَجْرِ مُمْتَدًّا عَلَى ٱلْجِبَالِ. شَعْبٌ كَثِيرٌ وَقَوِيٌّ لَمْ يَكُنْ نَظِيرُهُ مُنْذُ ٱلْأَزَلِ، وَلَا يَكُونُ أَيْضًا بَعْدَهُ إِلَى سِنِي دَوْرٍ فَدَوْرٍ. ٢ 2
It is a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness. Like the dawn that spreads on the mountains, a large and mighty army is approaching. There has never been an army like it, and there never will be again, even after many generations.
قُدَّامَهُ نَارٌ تَأْكُلُ، وَخَلْفَهُ لَهِيبٌ يَحْرِقُ. ٱلْأَرْضُ قُدَّامَهُ كَجَنَّةِ عَدْنٍ وَخَلْفَهُ قَفْرٌ خَرِبٌ، وَلَا تَكُونُ مِنْهُ نَجَاةٌ. ٣ 3
A fire is consuming everything in front of it, and behind it a flame is burning. The land is like the garden of Eden in front of it, but behind it there is a ruined wilderness. Indeed, nothing will escape from it.
كَمَنْظَرِ ٱلْخَيْلِ مَنْظَرُهُ، وَمِثْلَ ٱلْأَفْرَاسِ يَرْكُضُونَ. ٤ 4
The army's appearance is like horses, and they run like horsemen.
كَصَرِيفِ ٱلْمَرْكَبَاتِ عَلَى رُؤُوسِ ٱلْجِبَالِ يَثِبُونَ. كَزَفِيرِ لَهِيبِ نَارٍ تَأْكُلُ قَشًّا. كَقَوْمٍ أَقْوِيَاءَ مُصْطَفِّينَ لِلْقِتَالِ. ٥ 5
They jump with a noise like that of chariots on the tops of the mountains, like the noise of fiery flames that devour the stubble, like a mighty army ready for battle.
مِنْهُ تَرْتَعِدُ ٱلشُّعُوبِ. كُلُّ ٱلْوُجُوهِ تَجْمَعُ حُمْرَةً. ٦ 6
At their presence people are in anguish and all their faces become pale.
يَجْرُونَ كَأَبْطَالٍ. يَصْعَدُونَ ٱلسُّورَ كَرِجَالِ ٱلْحَرْبِ، وَيَمْشُونَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ فِي طَرِيقِهِ، وَلَا يُغَيِّرُونَ سُبُلَهُمْ. ٧ 7
They run like mighty warriors; they climb the walls like soldiers; they march, every one in step, and do not break their ranks.
وَلَا يُزَاحِمُ بَعْضُهُمْ بَعْضًا. يَمْشُونَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ فِي سَبِيلِهِ، وَبَيْنَ ٱلْأَسْلِحَةِ يَقَعُونَ وَلَا يَنْكَسِرُونَ. ٨ 8
Neither does one thrust another aside; they march, each in his path; they break through the defenses and do not fall out of line.
يَتَرَاكَضُونَ فِي ٱلْمَدِينَةِ. يَجْرُونَ عَلَى ٱلسُّورِ. يَصْعَدُونَ إِلَى ٱلْبُيُوتِ. يَدْخُلُونَ مِنَ ٱلْكُوَى كَٱللِّصِّ. ٩ 9
They rush on the city, they run on the wall, they climb in the houses, and they go through the windows like thieves.
قُدَّامَهُ تَرْتَعِدُ ٱلْأَرْضُ وَتَرْجُفُ ٱلسَّمَاءُ. اَلشَّمْسُ وَٱلْقَمَرُ يُظْلِمَانِ، وَٱلنُّجُومُ تَحْجُزُ لَمَعَانَهَا. ١٠ 10
The earth shakes in front of them, the heavens tremble, the sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars stop shining.
وَٱلرَّبُّ يُعْطِي صَوْتَهُ أَمَامَ جَيْشِهِ. إِنَّ عَسْكَرَهُ كَثِيرٌ جِدًّا. فَإِنَّ صَانِعَ قَوْلِهِ قَوِيٌّ، لِأَنَّ يَوْمَ ٱلرَّبِّ عَظِيمٌ وَمَخُوفٌ جِدًّا، فَمَنْ يُطِيقُهُ؟ ١١ 11
Yahweh raises his voice in front of his army, for his warriors are very numerous; for they are strong, those who carry out his commands. For the day of Yahweh is great and very terrible. Who can survive it?
«وَلَكِنِ ٱلْآنَ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، ٱرْجِعُوا إِلَيَّ بِكُلِّ قُلُوبِكُمْ، وَبِٱلصَّوْمِ وَٱلْبُكَاءِ وَٱلنَّوْحِ. ١٢ 12
“Yet even now,” says Yahweh, “Return to me with all your heart. Fast, weep, and mourn.”
وَمَزِّقُوا قُلُوبَكُمْ لَا ثِيَابَكُمْ». وَٱرْجِعُوا إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمْ لِأَنَّهُ رَؤُوفٌ رَحِيمٌ، بَطِيءُ ٱلْغَضَبِ وَكَثِيرُ ٱلرَّأْفَةِ وَيَنْدَمُ عَلَى ٱلشَّرِّ. ١٣ 13
Tear your heart and not only your garments, and return to Yahweh your God. For he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abundant in covenant faithfulness, and he would like to turn from inflicting punishment.
لَعَلَّهُ يَرْجِعُ وَيَنْدَمُ، فَيُبْقِيَ وَرَاءَهُ بَرَكَةَ، تَقْدِمَةٍ وَسَكِيبًا لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمْ. ١٤ 14
Who knows? Will he perhaps turn and have compassion, and leave a blessing behind him, a grain offering and a drink offering for Yahweh your God?
اِضْرِبُوا بِٱلْبُوقِ فِي صِهْيَوْنَ. قَدِّسُوا صَوْمًا. نَادُوا بِٱعْتِكَافٍ. ١٥ 15
Blow the trumpet in Zion, call for a holy fast, and call a holy assembly.
اِجْمَعُوا ٱلشَّعْبَ. قَدِّسُوا ٱلْجَمَاعَةَ. ٱحْشُدُوا ٱلشُّيُوخَ. ٱجْمَعُوا ٱلْأَطْفَالَ وَرَاضِعِي ٱلثُّدِيِّ. لِيَخْرُجِ ٱلْعَرِيسُ مِنْ مِخْدَعِهِ وَٱلْعَرُوسُ مِنْ حَجَلَتِهَا. ١٦ 16
Gather the people, call for the holy assembly. Assemble the elders, gather the children and the nursing infants. Let the bridegrooms come out of their rooms, and the brides out of their bridal chambers.
لِيَبْكِ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ خُدَّامُ ٱلرَّبِّ بَيْنَ ٱلرِّواقِ وَٱلْمَذْبَحِ، وَيَقُولُوا: «ٱشْفِقْ يَارَبُّ عَلَى شَعْبِكَ، وَلَا تُسَلِّمْ مِيرَاثَكَ لِلْعَارِ حَتَّى تَجْعَلَهُمُ ٱلْأُمَمُ مَثَلًا. لِمَاذَا يَقُولُونَ بَيْنَ ٱلشُّعُوبِ: أَيْنَ إِلَهُهُمْ؟». ١٧ 17
Let the priests, the servants of Yahweh, weep between the porch and the altar. Let them say, “Spare your people, Yahweh, and do not make your inheritance into an object of scorn, that the nations mock them. Why should they say among the nations, 'Where is their God?'”
فَيَغَارُ ٱلرَّبُّ لِأَرْضِهِ وَيَرِقُّ لِشَعْبِهِ. ١٨ 18
Then Yahweh was zealous for his land and had pity on his people.
وَيُجِيبُ ٱلرَّبُّ وَيَقُولُ لِشَعْبِهِ: «هَأَنَذَا مُرْسِلٌ لَكُمْ قَمْحًا وَمِسْطَارًا وَزَيْتًا لِتَشْبَعُوا مِنْهَا، وَلَا أَجْعَلُكُمْ أَيْضًا عَارًا بَيْنَ ٱلْأُمَمِ. ١٩ 19
Yahweh answered his people, “Look, I will send you grain, new wine, and oil. You will be satisfied with them, and I will no longer make you a disgrace among the nations.
وَٱلشِّمَالِيُّ أُبْعِدُهُ عَنْكُمْ، وَأَطْرُدُهُ إِلَى أَرْضٍ نَاشِفَةٍ وَمُقْفِرَةٍ. مُقَدَّمَتُهُ إِلَى ٱلْبَحْرِ ٱلشَّرْقِيِّ، وَسَاقَتُهُ إِلَى ٱلْبَحْرِ ٱلْغَرْبِيِّ، فَيَصْعَدُ نَتَنُهُ، وَتَطْلُعُ زُهْمَتُهُ، لِأَنَّهُ قَدْ تَصَلَّفَ فِي عَمَلِهِ». ٢٠ 20
I will remove the northern attackers far from you, and will drive them into a dry and abandoned land. The front of their army will go into the eastern sea, and the rear into the western sea. Its stench will rise, and its bad smell will rise.” Indeed, he has done great things.
لَا تَخَافِي أَيَّتُهَا ٱلْأَرْضُ. ٱبْتَهِجِي وَٱفْرَحِي لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ يُعَظِّمُ عَمَلَهُ. ٢١ 21
Do not fear, land, be glad and rejoice, for Yahweh will do great things.
لَا تَخَافِي يَا بَهَائِمَ ٱلصَّحْرَاءِ، فَإِنَّ مَرَاعِيَ ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ تَنْبُتُ، لِأَنَّ ٱلْأَشْجَارَ تَحْمِلُ ثَمَرَهَا، ٱلتِّينَةُ وَٱلْكَرْمَةُ تُعْطِيَانِ قُوَّتَهُمَا. ٢٢ 22
Do not fear, beasts of the field, for the pastures of the wilderness will sprout, the trees will bear their fruit, and the fig trees and the vines will yield their full harvest.
وَيَا بَنِي صِهْيَوْنَ، ٱبْتَهِجُوا وَٱفْرَحُوا بِٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمْ، لِأَنَّهُ يُعْطِيكُمُ ٱلْمَطَرَ ٱلْمُبَكِّرَ عَلَى حَقِّهِ، وَيُنْزِلُ عَلَيْكُمْ مَطَرًا مُبَكِّرًا وَمُتَأَخِّرًا فِي أَوَّلِ ٱلْوَقْتِ، ٢٣ 23
Be glad, people of Zion, and rejoice in Yahweh your God. For he will give you the autumn rain in due course and bring down showers for you, the autumn rain and the spring rain as before.
فَتُمْلَأُ ٱلْبَيَادِرُ حِنْطَةً، وَتَفِيضُ حِيَاضُ ٱلْمَعَاصِرِ خَمْرًا وَزَيْتًا. ٢٤ 24
The threshing floors will be full of wheat, and the vats will overflow with new wine and oil.
«وَأُعَوِّضُ لَكُمْ عَنِ ٱلسِّنِينَ ٱلَّتِي أَكَلَهَا ٱلْجَرَادُ، ٱلْغَوْغَاءُ وَٱلطَّيَّارُ وَٱلْقَمَصُ، جَيْشِي ٱلْعَظِيمُ ٱلَّذِي أَرْسَلْتُهُ عَلَيْكُمْ. ٢٥ 25
“I will restore to you the years of crops that the swarming locust has eaten —the great locust, the devouring locust, and the destroying locust— my mighty army that I sent among you.
فَتَأْكُلُونَ أَكْلًا وَتَشْبَعُونَ وَتُسَبِّحُونَ ٱسْمَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمُ ٱلَّذِي صَنَعَ مَعَكُمْ عَجَبًا، وَلَا يَخْزَى شَعْبِي إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ. ٢٦ 26
You will eat plentifully and be full, and praise the name of Yahweh your God, who has done wonders among you, and I will never again bring shame on my people.
وَتَعْلَمُونَ أَنِّي أَنَا فِي وَسْطِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَأَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكُمْ وَلَيْسَ غَيْرِي. وَلَا يَخْزَى شَعْبِي إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ. ٢٧ 27
You will know that I am among Israel, and that I am Yahweh your God, and there is none else, and I will never bring shame on my people.
«وَيَكُونُ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ أَنِّي أَسْكُبُ رُوحِي عَلَى كُلِّ بَشَرٍ، فَيَتَنَبَّأُ بَنُوكُمْ وَبَنَاتُكُمْ، وَيَحْلَمُ شُيُوخُكُمْ أَحْلَامًا، وَيَرَى شَبَابُكُمْ رُؤًى. ٢٨ 28
It will come about afterward that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.
وَعَلَى ٱلْعَبِيدِ أَيْضًا وَعَلَى ٱلْإِمَاءِ أَسْكُبُ رُوحِي فِي تِلْكَ ٱلْأَيَّامِ، ٢٩ 29
Also on servants and female servants, in those days I will pour out my Spirit.
وَأُعْطِي عَجَائِبَ فِي ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ، دَمًا وَنَارًا وَأَعْمِدَةَ دُخَانٍ. ٣٠ 30
I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood, fire, and pillars of smoke.
تَتَحَوَّلُ ٱلشَّمْسُ إِلَى ظُلْمَةٍ، وَٱلْقَمَرُ إِلَى دَمٍ قَبْلَ أَنْ يَجِيءَ يَوْمُ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلْعَظِيمُ ٱلْمَخُوفُ. ٣١ 31
The sun will turn into darkness and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of Yahweh comes.
وَيَكُونُ أَنَّ كُلَّ مَنْ يَدْعُو بِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ يَنْجُو. لِأَنَّهُ فِي جَبَلِ صِهْيَوْنَ وَفِي أُورُشَلِيمَ تَكُونُ نَجَاةٌ، كَمَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ. وَبَيْنَ ٱلْبَاقِينَ مَنْ يَدْعُوهُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٣٢ 32
It will be that everyone who calls on the name of Yahweh will be saved. For on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be those who escape, as Yahweh has said, and among the survivors, those whom Yahweh calls.
