يُوئِيل 3

«لِأَنَّهُ هُوَذَا فِي تِلْكَ ٱلْأَيَّامِ وَفِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْوَقْتِ، عِنْدَمَا أَرُدُّ سَبْيَ يَهُوذَا وَأُورُشَلِيمَ، ١ 1
Behold, in those days and at that time, when I return the exiles of Judah and Jerusalem,
أَجْمَعُ كُلَّ ٱلْأُمَمِ وَأُنَزِّلُهُمْ إِلَى وَادِي يَهُوشَافَاطَ، وَأُحَاكِمُهُمْ هُنَاكَ عَلَى شَعْبِي وَمِيرَاثِي إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلَّذِينَ بَدَّدُوهُمْ بَيْنَ ٱلْأُمَمِ وَقَسَمُوا أَرْضِي، ٢ 2
I will gather all the nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. I will judge them there, because of my people and my inheritance Israel, whom they scattered among the nations, and because they divided up my land.
وَأَلْقَوْا قُرْعَةً عَلَى شَعْبِي، وَأَعْطَوْا ٱلصَّبِيَّ بِزَانِيَةٍ، وَبَاعُوا ٱلْبِنْتَ بِخَمْرٍ لِيَشْرَبُوا. ٣ 3
They cast lots for my people, traded a boy for a prostitute, and sold a girl for wine so they could drink.
«وَمَاذَا أَنْتُنَّ لِي يَا صُورُ وَصَيْدُونُ وَجَمِيعَ دَائِرَةِ فِلِسْطِينَ؟ هَلْ تُكَافِئُونَنِي عَنِ ٱلْعَمَلِ، أَمْ هَلْ تَصْنَعُونَ بِي شَيْئًا؟ سَرِيعًا بِٱلْعَجَلِ أَرُدُّ عَمَلَكُمْ عَلَى رُؤُوسِكُمْ. ٤ 4
Now, why are you angry at me, Tyre, Sidon and all the regions of Philistia? Will you repay me? Even if you do repay me, I will immediately return your retribution on your own head.
لِأَنَّكُمْ أَخَذْتُمْ فِضَّتِي وَذَهَبِي، وَأَدْخَلْتُمْ نَفَائِسِي ٱلْجَيِّدَةَ إِلَى هَيَاكِلِكُمْ. ٥ 5
For you took my silver and my gold, and you brought my precious treasures into your temples.
وَبِعْتُمْ بَنِي يَهُوذَا وَبَنِي أُورُشَلِيمَ لِبَنِي ٱلْيَاوَانِيِّينَ لِكَيْ تُبْعِدُوهُمْ عَنْ تُخُومِهِمْ. ٦ 6
You sold the people of Judah and Jerusalem to the Greeks, in order to remove them far from their territory.
هَأَنَذَا أُنْهِضُهُمْ مِنَ ٱلْمَوْضِعِ ٱلَّذِي بِعْتُمُوهُمْ إِلَيْهِ، وَأَرُدُّ عَمَلَكُمْ عَلَى رُؤُوسِكُمْ. ٧ 7
Look, I am about to stir them up, out of the place where you sold them, and will return payment on your own head.
وَأَبِيعُ بَنِيكُمْ وَبَنَاتِكُمْ بِيَدِ بَنِي يَهُوذَا لِيَبِيعُوهُمْ لِلسَّبَائِيِّينَ، لِأُمَّةٍ بَعِيدَةٍ، لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ قَدْ تَكَلَّمَ». ٨ 8
I will sell your sons and your daughters, by the hand of the people of Judah. They will sell them to the Sabeans, to a nation far off, for Yahweh has spoken.”
نَادُوا بِهَذَا بَيْنَ ٱلْأُمَمِ. قَدِّسُوا حَرْبًا. أَنْهِضُوا ٱلْأَبْطَالَ. لِيَتَقَدَّمْ وَيَصْعَدْ كُلُّ رِجَالِ ٱلْحَرْبِ. ٩ 9
Proclaim this among the nations, “Prepare yourselves for war, rouse the mighty men, let them come near, let all the men of battle come up.
اِطْبَعُوا سِكَّاتِكُمْ سُيُوفًا، وَمَنَاجِلَكُمْ رِمَاحًا. لِيَقُلِ ٱلضَّعِيفُ: «بَطَلٌ أَنَا!» ١٠ 10
Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning knives into spears. Let the weak say, 'I am strong.'
أَسْرِعُوا وَهَلُمُّوا يَا جَمِيعَ ٱلْأُمَمِ مِنْ كُلِّ نَاحِيَةٍ وَٱجْتَمِعُوا. إِلَى هُنَاكَ أَنْزِلْ يَارَبُّ أَبْطَالَكَ. ١١ 11
Hurry and come, all you nearby nations, gather yourselves together there. Yahweh, bring down your mighty warriors.
«تَنْهَضُ وَتَصْعَدُ ٱلْأُمَمُ إِلَى وَادِي يَهُوشَافَاطَ، لِأَنِّي هُنَاكَ أَجْلِسُ لِأُحَاكِمَ جَمِيعَ ٱلْأُمَمِ مِنْ كُلِّ نَاحِيَةٍ. ١٢ 12
Let the nations wake themselves up and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. For there will I sit to judge all the surrounding nations.
أَرْسِلُوا ٱلْمِنْجَلَ لِأَنَّ ٱلْحَصِيدَ قَدْ نَضَجَ. هَلُمُّوا دُوسُوا لِأَنَّهُ قَدِ ٱمْتَلَأَتِ ٱلْمِعْصَرَةُ. فَاضَتِ ٱلْحِيَاضُ لِأَنَّ شَرَّهُمْ كَثِيرٌ». ١٣ 13
Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, crush the grapes, for the winepress is full. The vats overflow, for their wickedness is enormous.”
جَمَاهِيرُ جَمَاهِيرُ فِي وَادِي ٱلْقَضَاءِ، لِأَنَّ يَوْمَ ٱلرَّبِّ قَرِيبٌ فِي وَادِي ٱلْقَضَاءِ. ١٤ 14
There is a tumult, a tumult in the Valley of Judgment. For the day of Yahweh is near in the Valley of Judgment.
اَلشَّمْسُ وَٱلْقَمَرُ يَظْلُمَانِ، وَٱلنُّجُومُ تَحْجُزُ لَمَعَانَهَا. ١٥ 15
The sun and the moon become dark, the stars keep back their brightness.
وَٱلرَّبُّ مِنْ صِهْيَوْنَ يُزَمْجِرُ، وَمِنْ أُورُشَلِيمَ يُعْطِي صَوْتَهُ، فَتَرْجُفُ ٱلسَّمَاءُ وَٱلْأَرْضُ. وَلَكِنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ مَلْجَأٌ لِشَعْبِهِ، وَحِصْنٌ لِبَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ١٦ 16
Yahweh will roar from Zion, and raise his voice from Jerusalem. The heavens and earth will shake, but Yahweh will be a shelter for his people, and a fortress for the people of Israel.
«فَتَعْرِفُونَ أَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكُمْ، سَاكِنًا فِي صِهْيَوْنَ جَبَلِ قُدْسِي. وَتَكُونُ أُورُشَلِيمُ مُقَدَّسَةً وَلَا يَجْتَازُ فِيهَا ٱلْأَعَاجِمُ فِي مَا بَعْدُ. ١٧ 17
“So you will know that I am Yahweh your God who lives in Zion, my holy mountain. Then Jerusalem will be holy, and no army will march through her again.
«وَيَكُونُ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ أَنَّ ٱلْجِبَالَ تَقْطُرُ عَصِيرًا، وَٱلتِّلَالَ تَفِيضُ لَبَنًا، وَجَمِيعَ يَنَابِيعِ يَهُوذَا تَفِيضُ مَاءً، وَمِنْ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ يَخْرُجُ يَنْبُوعٌ وَيَسْقِي وَادِي ٱلسَّنْطِ. ١٨ 18
It will come about on that day that the mountains will drip with sweet wine, the hills will flow with milk, all the brooks of Judah will flow with water, and a fountain will come from the house of Yahweh and water the Valley of Shittim.
مِصْرُ تَصِيرُ خَرَابًا، وَأَدُومُ تَصِيرُ قَفْرًا خَرِبًا، مِنْ أَجْلِ ظُلْمِهِمْ لِبَنِي يَهُوذَا ٱلَّذِينَ سَفَكُوا دَمًا بَرِيئًا فِي أَرْضِهِمْ. ١٩ 19
Egypt will become an abandoned devastation, and Edom will become an abandoned wilderness, because of the violence done to the people of Judah, because they shed innocent blood in their land.
وَلَكِنَّ يَهُوذَا تُسْكَنُ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ، وَأُورُشَلِيمَ إِلَى دَوْرٍ فَدَوْرٍ. ٢٠ 20
But Judah will be inhabited forever, and Jerusalem will be inhabited from generation to generation.
وَأُبَرِّئُ دَمَهُمُ ٱلَّذِي لَمْ أُبَرِّئْهُ، وَٱلرَّبُّ يَسْكُنُ فِي صِهْيَوْنَ». ٢١ 21
I will avenge their blood that I have not yet avenged, for Yahweh lives in Zion.”
