يَشُوع 10

فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ أَدُونِي صَادَقَ مَلِكُ أُورُشَلِيمَ أَنَّ يَشُوعَ قَدْ أَخَذَ عَايَ وَحَرَّمَهَا. كَمَا فَعَلَ بِأَرِيحَا وَمَلِكِهَا فَعَلَ بِعَايٍ وَمَلِكِهَا، وَأَنَّ سُكَّانَ جِبْعُونَ قَدْ صَالَحُوا إِسْرَائِيلَ وَكَانُوا فِي وَسَطِهِمْ، ١ 1
Now when Adoni-Zedek, king of Jerusalem, heard that Joshua had captured Ai and had completely destroyed it (just as he had done to Jericho and its king), he also heard how the people of Gibeon had made peace with Israel and were living among them.
خَافَ جِدًّا، لِأَنَّ جِبْعُونَ مَدِينَةٌ عَظِيمَةٌ كَإِحْدَى ٱلْمُدُنِ ٱلْمَلَكِيَّةِ، وَهِيَ أَعْظَمُ مِنْ عَايٍ، وَكُلُّ رِجَالِهَا جَبَابِرَةٌ. ٢ 2
The people of Jerusalem were very afraid because Gibeon was a large city, like one of the royal cities. It was larger than Ai, and all its men were mighty warriors.
فَأَرْسَلَ أَدُونِي صَادَقَ مَلِكُ أُورُشَلِيمَ إِلَى هُوهَامَ مَلِكِ حَبْرُونَ، وَفِرْآمَ مَلِكِ يَرْمُوتَ، وَيَافِيعَ مَلِكِ لَخِيشَ، وَدَبِيرَ مَلِكِ عَجْلُونَ يَقُولُ: ٣ 3
So Adoni-Zedek, king of Jerusalem, sent a message to Hoham, king of Hebron, to Piram, king of Jarmuth, to Japhia, king of Lachish, and to Debir, king of Eglon:
«ٱصْعَدُوا إِلَيَّ وَأَعِينُونِي، فَنَضْرِبَ جِبْعُونَ لِأَنَّهَا صَالَحَتْ يَشُوعَ وَبَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ». ٤ 4
“Come up to me and help me. Let us attack Gibeon because they have made peace with Joshua and with the people of Israel.”
فَٱجْتَمَعَ مُلُوكُ ٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ ٱلْخَمْسَةُ: مَلِكُ أُورُشَلِيمَ، وَمَلِكُ حَبْرُونَ، وَمَلِكُ يَرْمُوتَ، وَمَلِكُ لَخِيشَ، وَمَلِكُ عَجْلُونَ، وَصَعِدُوا هُمْ وَكُلُّ جُيُوشِهِمْ وَنَزَلُوا عَلَى جِبْعُونَ وَحَارَبُوهَا. ٥ 5
The five kings of the Amorites, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon came up, they and all their armies. They set up their positions against Gibeon, and they attacked it.
فَأَرْسَلَ أَهْلُ جِبْعُونَ إِلَى يَشُوعَ إِلَى ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ فِي ٱلْجِلْجَالِ يَقُولُونَ: «لَا تُرْخِ يَدَيْكَ عَنْ عَبِيدِكَ. ٱصْعَدْ إِلَيْنَا عَاجِلًا وَخَلِّصْنَا وَأَعِنَّا، لِأَنَّهُ قَدِ ٱجْتَمَعَ عَلَيْنَا جَمِيعُ مُلُوكِ ٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ ٱلسَّاكِنِينَ فِي ٱلْجَبَلِ». ٦ 6
The people of Gibeon sent a message to Joshua and to the army at Gilgal. They said, “Hurry! Do not withdraw your hands from your servants. Come up to us quickly and save us. Help us, for all the kings of the Amorites who live in the hill country have gathered together to attack us.”
فَصَعِدَ يَشُوعُ مِنَ ٱلْجِلْجَالِ هُوَ وَجَمِيعُ رِجَالِ ٱلْحَرْبِ مَعَهُ وَكُلُّ جَبَابِرَةِ ٱلْبَأْسِ. ٧ 7
Joshua went up from Gilgal, he and all the men of war with him, and all the fighting men.
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِيَشُوعَ: «لَا تَخَفْهُمْ، لِأَنِّي بِيَدِكَ قَدْ أَسْلَمْتُهُمْ. لَا يَقِفُ رَجُلٌ مِنْهُمْ بِوَجْهِكَ». ٨ 8
Yahweh said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid of them. I have given them into your hand. Not one of them will be able to stop your attack.”
فَأَتَى إِلَيْهِمْ يَشُوعُ بَغْتَةً. صَعِدَ ٱللَّيْلَ كُلَّهُ مِنَ ٱلْجِلْجَالِ. ٩ 9
Joshua came upon them suddenly, having marched all night from Gilgal.
فَأَزْعَجَهُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ أَمَامَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَضَرَبَهُمْ ضَرْبَةً عَظِيمَةً فِي جِبْعُونَ، وَطَرَدَهُمْ فِي طَرِيقِ عَقَبَةِ بَيْتِ حُورُونَ، وَضَرَبَهُمْ إِلَى عَزِيقَةَ وَإِلَى مَقِّيدَةَ. ١٠ 10
Yahweh confused the enemy before Israel, and Israel killed them with a great slaughter at Gibeon and pursued them on the road going up to Beth Horon, and they killed them on the road to Azekah and Makkedah.
وَبَيْنَمَا هُمْ هَارِبُونَ مِنْ أَمَامِ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَهُمْ فِي مُنْحَدَرِ بَيْتِ حُورُونَ، رَمَاهُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ بِحِجَارَةٍ عَظِيمَةٍ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ إِلَى عَزِيقَةَ فَمَاتُوا. وَٱلَّذِينَ مَاتُوا بِحِجَارَةِ ٱلْبَرَدِ هُمْ أَكْثَرُ مِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ قَتَلَهُمْ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ بِٱلسَّيْفِ. ١١ 11
As they ran away from Israel, down the hill from Beth Horon, Yahweh threw large stones down from heaven upon them all the way to Azekah, and they died. There were more who died because of the hailstones than who were killed with the sword by the men of Israel.
حِينَئِذٍ كَلَّمَ يَشُوعُ ٱلرَّبَّ، يَوْمَ أَسْلَمَ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ أَمَامَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَقَالَ أَمَامَ عُيُونِ إِسْرَائِيلَ: «يَا شَمْسُ دُومِي عَلَى جِبْعُونَ، وَيَا قَمَرُ عَلَى وَادِي أَيَّلُونَ». ١٢ 12
Then Joshua spoke to Yahweh on the day Yahweh gave the men of Israel victory over the Amorites. This is what Joshua said to Yahweh before Israel, “Sun, be still at Gibeon, and moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.”
فَدَامَتِ ٱلشَّمْسُ وَوَقَفَ ٱلْقَمَرُ حَتَّى ٱنْتَقَمَ ٱلشَّعْبُ مِنْ أَعْدَائِهِ. أَلَيْسَ هَذَا مَكْتُوبًا فِي سِفْرِ يَاشَرَ؟ فَوَقَفَتِ ٱلشَّمْسُ فِي كَبِدِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَلَمْ تَعْجَلْ لِلْغُرُوبِ نَحْوَ يَوْمٍ كَامِلٍ. ١٣ 13
The sun stood still, and the moon stopped moving until the nation took vengeance on their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jashar? The sun stayed in the middle of the sky; it did not go down for about a whole day.
وَلَمْ يَكُنْ مِثْلُ ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ قَبْلَهُ وَلَا بَعْدَهُ سَمِعَ فِيهِ ٱلرَّبُّ صَوْتَ إِنْسَانٍ، لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ حَارَبَ عَنْ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ١٤ 14
There has been no other day like it before or after it, when Yahweh obeyed the voice of a human being. For Yahweh was waging war on behalf of Israel.
ثُمَّ رَجَعَ يَشُوعُ وَجَمِيعُ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَعَهُ إِلَى ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ فِي ٱلْجِلْجَالِ. ١٥ 15
Joshua and all Israel with him returned to the camp at Gilgal.
فَهَرَبَ أُولَئِكَ ٱلْخَمْسَةُ ٱلْمُلُوكِ وَٱخْتَبَأُوا فِي مَغَارَةٍ فِي مَقِّيدَةَ. ١٦ 16
Now the five kings had escaped and hidden themselves in the cave at Makkedah.
فَأُخْبِرَ يَشُوعُ وَقيِلَ لَهُ: «قَدْ وُجِدَ ٱلْمُلُوكُ ٱلْخَمْسَةُ مُخْتَبِئِينَ فِي مَغَارَةٍ فِي مَقِّيدَةَ». ١٧ 17
It was told to Joshua, “They have been found!—the five kings hidden in the cave at Makkedah!”
فَقَالَ يَشُوعُ: «دَحْرِجُوا حِجَارَةً عَظِيمَةً عَلَى فَمِ ٱلْمَغَارَةِ، وَأَقِيمُوا عَلَيْهَا رِجَالًا لِأَجْلِ حِفْظِهِمْ. ١٨ 18
Joshua said, “Roll large stones against the mouth of the cave and place soldiers there to guard them.
وَأَمَّا أَنْتُمْ فَلَا تَقِفُوا، بَلِ ٱسْعَوْا وَرَاءَ أَعْدَائِكُمْ وَٱضْرِبُوا مُؤَخَّرَهُمْ. لَا تَدَعُوهُمْ يَدْخُلُونَ مُدُنَهُمْ، لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكُمْ قَدْ أَسْلَمَهُمْ بِيَدِكُمْ». ١٩ 19
Do not stay yourselves. Pursue your enemies and attack them from the rear. Do not permit them to enter into their cities, because Yahweh your God has given them into your hand.”
وَلَمَّا ٱنْتَهَى يَشُوعُ وَبَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ ضَرْبِهِمْ ضَرْبَةً عَظِيمَةً جِدًّا حَتَّى فَنُوا، وَٱلشَّرَدُ ٱلَّذِينَ شَرَدُوا مِنْهُمْ دَخَلُوا ٱلْمُدُنَ ٱلْمُحَصَّنَةَ. ٢٠ 20
Joshua and the sons of Israel had finished slaughtering them with a very great slaughter, until they were almost completely destroyed; only a few survivors who escaped reached the fortified cities.
رَجَعَ جَمِيعُ ٱلشَّعْبِ إِلَى ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ إِلَى يَشُوعَ فِي مَقِّيدَةَ بِسَلَامٍ. لَمْ يَسُنَّ أَحَدٌ لِسَانَهُ عَلَى بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٢١ 21
Then the whole army returned in peace to Joshua at the camp at Makkedah. No one dared to say one word against any of the people of Israel.
فَقَالَ يَشُوعُ: «ٱفْتَحُوا فَمَ ٱلْمَغَارَةِ وَأَخْرِجُوا إِلَيَّ هَؤُلَاءِ ٱلْخَمْسَةَ ٱلْمُلُوكِ مِنَ ٱلْمَغَارَةِ». ٢٢ 22
Then Joshua said, “Open the mouth of the cave and out of the cave bring to me these five kings.”
فَفَعَلُوا كَذَلِكَ، وَأَخْرَجُوا إِلَيْهِ أُولَئِكَ ٱلْمُلُوكَ ٱلْخَمْسَةَ مِنَ ٱلْمَغَارَةِ: مَلِكَ أُورُشَلِيمَ، وَمَلِكَ حَبْرُونَ، وَمَلِكَ يَرْمُوتَ، وَمَلِكَ لَخِيشَ، وَمَلِكَ عَجْلُونَ. ٢٣ 23
They did as he said. They brought to him these five kings from the cave—the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon.
وَكَانَ لَمَّا أَخْرَجُوا أُولَئِكَ ٱلْمُلُوكَ إِلَى يَشُوعَ أَنَّ يَشُوعَ دَعَا كُلَّ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَقَالَ لِقُوَّادِ رِجَالِ ٱلْحَرْبِ ٱلَّذِينَ سَارُوا مَعَهُ: «تَقَدَّمُوا وَضَعُوا أَرْجُلَكُمْ عَلَى أَعْنَاقِ هَؤُلَاءِ ٱلْمُلُوكِ». فَتَقَدَّمُوا وَوَضَعُوا أَرْجُلَهُمْ عَلَى أَعْنَاقِهِمْ. ٢٤ 24
When they brought the kings to Joshua, he summoned every man of Israel. He said to the commanders of the soldiers who had gone into battle with him, “Put your feet on their necks.” So they came up and put their feet on their necks.
فَقَالَ لَهُمْ يَشُوعُ: «لَا تَخَافُوا وَلَا تَرْتَعِبُوا. تَشَدَّدُوا وَتَشَجَّعُوا. لِأَنَّهُ هَكَذَا يَفْعَلُ ٱلرَّبُّ بِجَمِيعِ أَعْدَائِكُمُ ٱلَّذِينَ تُحَارِبُونَهُمْ». ٢٥ 25
Then he said to them, “Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed. Be strong and courageous. This is what Yahweh will do to all your enemies you are going to fight.”
وَضَرَبَهُمْ يَشُوعُ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ وَقَتَلَهُمْ وَعَلَّقَهُمْ عَلَى خَمْسِ خَشَبٍ، وَبَقُوا مُعَلَّقِينَ عَلَى ٱلْخَشَبِ حَتَّى ٱلْمَسَاءِ. ٢٦ 26
Then Joshua attacked and killed the kings. He hung them on five trees. They hung on the trees until evening.
وَكَانَ عِنْدَ غُرُوبِ ٱلشَّمْسِ أَنَّ يَشُوعَ أَمَرَ فَأَنْزَلُوهُمْ عَنِ ٱلْخَشَبِ وَطَرَحُوهُمْ فِي ٱلْمَغَارَةِ ٱلَّتِي ٱخْتَبَأُوا فِيهَا، وَوَضَعُوا حِجَارَةً كَبِيرَةً عَلَى فَمِ ٱلْمَغَارةِ حَتَّى إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ عَيْنِهِ. ٢٧ 27
When it was sunset, Joshua gave orders, and they took them down from the trees and threw them into the cave where they had hidden themselves. They put large stones over the mouth of the cave. Those stones remain there to this very day.
وَأَخَذَ يَشُوعُ مَقِّيدَةَ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ وَضَرَبَهَا بِحَدِّ ٱلسَّيْفِ، وَحَرَّمَ مَلِكَهَا هُوَ وَكُلَّ نَفْسٍ بِهَا. لَمْ يُبْقِ شَارِدًا، وَفَعَلَ بِمَلِكِ مَقِّيدَةَ كَمَا فَعَلَ بِمَلِكِ أَرِيحَا. ٢٨ 28
In this way, Joshua captured Makkedah on that day and killed everyone there with the sword, including its king. He completely destroyed everyone in it. He left no survivor in it. He did to the king of Makkedah just as he had done to the king of Jericho.
ثُمَّ ٱجْتَازَ يَشُوعُ مِنْ مَقِّيدَةَ وَكُلُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَعَهُ إِلَى لِبْنَةَ، وَحَارَبَ لِبْنَةَ. ٢٩ 29
Joshua and all Israel passed on from Makkedah to Libnah. He went into battle against Libnah.
فَدَفَعَهَا ٱلرَّبُّ هِيَ أَيْضًا بِيَدِ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَعَ مَلِكِهَا، فَضَرَبَهَا بِحَدِّ ٱلسَّيْفِ وَكُلَّ نَفْسٍ بِهَا. لَمْ يُبْقِ بِهَا شَارِدًا، وَفَعَلَ بِمَلِكِهَا كَمَا فَعَلَ بِمَلِكِ أَرِيحَا. ٣٠ 30
Yahweh also gave it into the hand of Israel—along with their king. Joshua struck it with the edge of the sword and every person in it. He left no survivor in it. He did to its king just as he had done to the king of Jericho.
ثُمَّ ٱجْتَازَ يَشُوعُ وَكُلُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَعَهُ مِنْ لِبْنَةَ إِلَى لَخِيشَ وَنَزَلَ عَلَيْهَا وَحَارَبَهَا. ٣١ 31
Then Joshua and all Israel with him passed on from Libnah to Lachish. He camped by it and waged war against it.
فَدَفَعَ ٱلرَّبُّ لَخِيشَ بِيَدِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، فَأَخَذَهَا فِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلثَّانِي وَضَرَبَهَا بِحَدِّ ٱلسَّيْفِ وَكُلَّ نَفْسٍ بِهَا حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا فَعَلَ بِلِبْنَةَ. ٣٢ 32
Yahweh gave Lachish into the hand of Israel. Joshua captured it on the second day and struck it with the edge of the sword, and every person in it, just as he had done to Libnah.
حِينَئِذٍ صَعِدَ هُورَامُ مَلِكُ جَازَرَ لِإِعَانَةِ لَخِيشَ، وَضَرَبَهُ يَشُوعُ مَعَ شَعْبِهِ حَتَّى لَمْ يُبْقِ لَهُ شَارِدًا. ٣٣ 33
Then Horam, king of Gezer, came up to help Lachish. Joshua attacked him and his army until there was not even one survivor left.
ثُمَّ ٱجْتَازَ يَشُوعُ وَكُلُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَعَهُ مِنْ لَخِيشَ إِلَى عَجْلُونَ فَنَزَلُوا عَلَيْهَا وَحَارَبُوهَا، ٣٤ 34
Then Joshua and all Israel passed on from Lachish to Eglon. They camped by it and waged war against it,
وَأَخَذُوهَا فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ وَضَرَبُوهَا بِحَدِّ ٱلسَّيْفِ، وَحَرَّمَ كُلَّ نَفْسٍ بِهَا فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا فَعَلَ بِلَخِيشَ. ٣٥ 35
and captured it that same day. They struck it with the edge of the sword and they completely destroyed everyone in it, as Joshua had done to Lachish.
ثُمَّ صَعِدَ يَشُوعُ وَجَمِيعُ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَعَهُ مِنْ عَجْلُونَ إِلَى حَبْرُونَ وَحَارَبُوهَا، ٣٦ 36
Then Joshua and all Israel passed on from Eglon to Hebron. They waged war against it.
وَأَخَذُوهَا وَضَرَبُوهَا بِحَدِّ ٱلسَّيْفِ مَعَ مَلِكِهَا وَكُلِّ مُدُنِهَا وَكُلِّ نَفْسٍ بِهَا. لَمْ يُبْقِ شَارِدًا حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا فَعَلَ بِعَجْلُونَ، فَحَرَّمَهَا وَكُلَّ نَفْسٍ بِهَا. ٣٧ 37
They captured it and struck it with the edge of the sword, and its king and its villages, and everyone in it. They left no survivor it, as they had done to Eglon, they totally destroyed it and every person in it.
ثُمَّ رَجَعَ يَشُوعُ وَكُلُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَعَهُ إِلَى دَبِيرَ وَحَارَبَهَا، ٣٨ 38
Then Joshua turned, and all the army of Israel with him, and they passed on to Debir and waged war against it.
وَأَخَذَهَا مَعَ مَلِكِهَا وَكُلِّ مُدُنِهَا، وَضَرَبُوهَا بِحَدِّ ٱلسَّيْفِ وَحَرَّمُوا كُلَّ نَفْسٍ بِهَا. لَمْ يُبْقِ شَارِدًا، كَمَا فَعَلَ بِحَبْرُونَ كَذَلِكَ فَعَلَ بِدَبِيرَ وَمَلِكِهَا، وَكَمَا فَعَلَ بِلِبْنَةَ وَمَلِكِهَا. ٣٩ 39
They captured it, its king and all its nearby villages. They struck them with the edge of the sword and completely destroyed every person in it. They left no survivor. They did to Debir and its king as they had done to Libnah and its king and to Hebron.
فَضَرَبَ يَشُوعُ كُلَّ أَرْضِ ٱلْجَبَلِ وَٱلْجَنُوبِ وَٱلسَّهْلِ وَٱلسُّفُوحِ وَكُلَّ مُلُوكِهَا. لَمْ يُبْقِ شَارِدًا، بَلْ حَرَّمَ كُلَّ نَسَمَةٍ كَمَا أَمَرَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٤٠ 40
Joshua conquered all the land, the hill country, the Negev, the lowlands, and the foothills. Of all their kings he left not one survivor. He completely destroyed every living thing, just as Yahweh, the God of Israel, had commanded.
فَضَرَبَهُمْ يَشُوعُ مِنْ قَادَشَ بَرْنِيعَ إِلَى غَزَّةَ وَجَمِيعَ أَرْضِ جُوشِنَ إِلَى جِبْعُونَ. ٤١ 41
Joshua struck them from Kadesh Barnea to Gaza, and all the country of Goshen to Gibeon.
وَأَخَذَ يَشُوعُ جَمِيعَ أُولَئِكَ ٱلْمُلُوكِ وَأَرْضِهِمْ دُفْعَةً وَاحِدَةً، لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَ إِسْرَائِيلَ حَارَبَ عَنْ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٤٢ 42
Joshua captured all these kings and their land at one time because Yahweh, the God of Israel, fought for Israel.
ثُمَّ رَجَعَ يَشُوعُ وَجَمِيعُ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَعَهُ إِلَى ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ إِلَى ٱلْجِلْجَالِ. ٤٣ 43
Then Joshua, and all Israel with him, returned to the camp at Gilgal.
