يَشُوع 4

وَكَانَ لَمَّا ٱنْتَهَى جَمِيعُ ٱلشَّعْبِ مِنْ عُبُورِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ أَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ كَلَّمَ يَشُوعَ قَائِلًا: ١ 1
When all the people crossed over the Jordan, Yahweh said to Joshua,
«ٱنْتَخِبُوا مِنَ ٱلشَّعْبِ ٱثْنَيْ عَشَرَ رَجُلًا، رَجُلًا وَاحِدًا مِنْ كُلِّ سِبْطٍ، ٢ 2
“Choose twelve men for yourselves from among the people, one man from each tribe.
وَأْمُرُوهُمْ قَائِلِينَ: ٱحْمِلُوا مِنْ هُنَا مِنْ وَسَطِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ، مِنْ مَوْقِفِ أَرْجُلِ ٱلْكَهَنَةِ رَاسِخَةً، ٱثْنَيْ عَشَرَ حَجَرًا، وَعَبِّرُوهَا مَعَكُمْ وَضَعُوهَا فِي ٱلْمَبِيتِ ٱلَّذِي تَبِيتُونَ فِيهِ ٱللَّيْلَةَ». ٣ 3
Give them this command: 'Take up twelve stones from the middle of the Jordan where the priests are standing on the dry ground, and bring them over with you and lay them down in the place where you will spend the night tonight.'”
فَدَعَا يَشُوعُ ٱلِٱثْنَيْ عَشَرَ رَجُلًا ٱلَّذِينَ عَيَّنَهُمْ مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، رَجُلًا وَاحِدًا مِنْ كُلِّ سِبْطٍ. ٤ 4
Then Joshua called the twelve men whom he had chosen from the tribes of Israel, one from each tribe.
وَقَالَ لَهُمْ يَشُوعُ: «ٱعْبُرُوا أَمَامَ تَابُوتِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِكُمْ إِلَى وَسَطِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ، وَٱرْفَعُوا كُلُّ رَجُلٍ حَجَرًا وَاحِدًا عَلَى كَتِفِهِ حَسَبَ عَدَدِ أَسْبَاطِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، ٥ 5
Joshua said to them, “Go over before the ark of Yahweh your God into the middle of the Jordan. Each of you is to take up a stone upon his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the people of Israel.
لِكَيْ تَكُونَ هَذِهِ عَلَامَةً فِي وَسَطِكُمْ. إِذَا سَأَلَ غَدًا بَنُوكُمْ قَائِلِينَ: مَا لَكُمْ وَهَذِهِ ٱلْحِجَارَةَ؟ ٦ 6
This will be a sign in your midst for you when your children ask in days to come, 'What do these stones mean to you?'
تَقُولُونَ لَهُمْ: إِنَّ مِيَاهَ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ قَدِ ٱنْفَلَقَتْ أَمَامَ تَابُوتِ عَهْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ. عِنْدَ عُبُورِهِ ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ ٱنْفَلَقَتْ مِيَاهُ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ. فَتَكُونُ هَذِهِ ٱلْحِجَارَةُ تَذْكَارًا لِبَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ». ٧ 7
Then you will say to them, 'The waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of Yahweh. When it passed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. So these stones will be a memorial to the people of Israel forever.'”
فَفَعَلَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ هَكَذاَ كَمَا أَمَرَ يَشُوعُ، وَحَمَلُوا ٱثْنَيْ عَشَرَ حَجَرًا مِنْ وَسَطِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ، كَمَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِيَشُوعَ، حَسَبَ عَدَدِ أَسْبَاطِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَعَبَّرُوهَا مَعَهُمْ إِلَى ٱلْمَبِيتِ وَوَضَعُوهَا هُنَاكَ. ٨ 8
The people of Israel did just as Joshua commanded, and they picked up twelve stones from the middle of the Jordan, as Yahweh said to Joshua. They set the stones up according to the number of the tribes of the people of Israel. They carried the stones with them, over to the place where they camped and they set them down there.
وَنَصَبَ يَشُوعُ ٱثْنَيْ عَشَرَ حَجَرًا فِي وَسَطِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ تَحْتَ مَوْقِفِ أَرْجُلِ ٱلْكَهَنَةِ حَامِلِي تَابُوتِ ٱلْعَهْدِ. وَهِيَ هُنَاكَ إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ. ٩ 9
Then Joshua set up twelve stones in the middle of the Jordan River, in the place where the feet of the priests that carried the ark of the covenant stood. The memorial is there to this day.
وَٱلْكَهَنَةُ حَامِلُو ٱلتَّابُوتِ وَقَفُوا فِي وَسَطِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ حَتَّى ٱنْتَهَى كُلُّ شَيْءٍ أَمَرَ ٱلرَّبُّ يَشُوعَ أَنْ يُكَلِّمَ بِهِ ٱلشَّعْبَ، حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا أَمَرَ بِهِ مُوسَى يَشُوعَ. وَأَسْرَعَ ٱلشَّعْبُ فَعَبَرُوا. ١٠ 10
The priests that carried the ark stood in the middle of the Jordan until everything that Yahweh commanded Joshua to tell the people was completed, according to all that Moses had commanded Joshua. The people hurried and they crossed over.
وَكَانَ لَمَّا ٱنْتَهَى كُلُّ ٱلشَّعْبِ مِنَ ٱلْعُبُورِ، أَنَّهُ عَبَرَ تَابُوتُ ٱلرَّبِّ وَٱلْكَهَنَةُ فِي حَضْرَةِ ٱلشَّعْبِ. ١١ 11
When all the people had finished crossing over, the ark of Yahweh and the priests crossed over before the people.
وَعَبَرَ بَنُو رَأُوبَيْنَ وَبَنُو جَادٍ وَنِصْفُ سِبْطِ مَنَسَّى مُتَجَهِّزِينَ أَمَامَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، كَمَا كَلَّمَهُمْ مُوسَى. ١٢ 12
The tribe of Reuben, the tribe of Gad, and the half tribe of Manasseh passed before the people of Israel formed up as an army, just as Moses said to them.
نَحْوَ أَرْبَعِينَ أَلْفًا مُتَجَرِّدِينَ لِلْجُنْدِ عَبَرُوا أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ لِلْحَرْبِ إِلَى عَرَبَاتِ أَرِيحَا. ١٣ 13
About forty thousand men equipped for war passed before Yahweh, for battle on the plains of Jericho.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ عَظَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ يَشُوعَ فِي أَعْيُنِ جَمِيعِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، فَهَابُوهُ كَمَا هَابُوا مُوسَى كُلَّ أَيَّامِ حَيَاتِهِ. ١٤ 14
On that day Yahweh made Joshua great in the eyes of all Israel. They honored him—just as they honored Moses— all his days.
وَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ يَشُوعَ قَائِلًا: ١٥ 15
Then Yahweh spoke to Joshua,
«مُرِ ٱلْكَهَنَةَ حَامِلِي تَابُوتِ ٱلشَّهَادَةِ أَنْ يَصْعَدُوا مِنَ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ». ١٦ 16
“Command the priests who carry the ark of the testimony to come up out of the Jordan.”
فَأَمَرَ يَشُوعُ ٱلْكَهَنَةَ قَائِلًا: «ٱصْعَدُوا مِنَ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ». ١٧ 17
So, Joshua commanded the priests, “Come up out of the Jordan.”
فَكَانَ لَمَّا صَعِدَ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ حَامِلُو تَابُوتِ عَهْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ مِنْ وَسَطِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ، وَٱجْتُذِبَتْ بُطُونُ أَقْدَامِ ٱلْكَهَنَةِ إِلَى ٱلْيَابِسَةِ، أَنَّ مِيَاهَ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ رَجَعَتْ إِلَى مَكَانِهَا وَجَرَتْ كَمَا مِنْ قَبْلُ إِلَى كُلِّ شُطُوطِهِ. ١٨ 18
When the priests carrying the ark of the covenant of Yahweh came up out of the middle of the Jordan, and the soles of their feet were lifted up out on dry ground, then the waters of the Jordan returned to their place and overflowed its banks, just as they were four days before.
وَصَعِدَ ٱلشَّعْبُ مِنَ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ فِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلْعَاشِرِ مِنَ ٱلشَّهْرِ ٱلْأَوَّلِ، وَحَلُّوا فِي ٱلْجِلْجَالِ فِي تُخُمِ أَرِيحَا ٱلشَّرْقِيِّ. ١٩ 19
The people came up out of the Jordan on the tenth day of the first month. They stayed in Gilgal, east of Jericho.
وَٱلِٱثْنَا عَشَرَ حَجَرًا ٱلَّتِي أَخَذُوهَا مِنَ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ نَصَبَهَا يَشُوعُ فِي ٱلْجِلْجَالِ. ٢٠ 20
The twelve stones that they took out of the Jordan, Joshua set up in Gilgal.
وَكَلَّمَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ قَائِلًا: «إِذَا سَأَلَ بَنُوكُمْ غَدًا آبَاءَهُمْ قَائِلِينَ: مَا هَذِهِ ٱلْحِجَارَةُ؟ ٢١ 21
He said to the people of Israel, “When your descendants ask their fathers in times to come, 'What are these stones?'
تُعْلِمُونَ بَنِيكُمْ قَائِلِينَ: عَلَى ٱلْيَابِسَةِ عَبَرَ إِسْرَائِيلُ هَذَا ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ. ٢٢ 22
Tell your children, 'This is where Israel crossed over the Jordan on dry ground.'
لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكُمْ قَدْ يَبَّسَ مِيَاهَ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ مِنْ أَمَامِكُمْ حَتَّى عَبَرْتُمْ، كَمَا فَعَلَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكُمْ بِبَحْرِ سُوفٍ ٱلَّذِي يَبَّسَهُ مِنْ أَمَامِنَا حَتَّى عَبَرْنَا، ٢٣ 23
Yahweh your God dried up the waters of the Jordan for you, until you had crossed over, just as Yahweh your God did to the Sea of Reeds, which he dried up for us until we passed over,
لِكَيْ تَعْلَمَ جَمِيعُ شُعُوبِ ٱلْأَرْضِ يَدَ ٱلرَّبِّ أَنَّهَا قَوِيَّةٌ، لِكَيْ تَخَافُوا ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَكُمْ كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ». ٢٤ 24
so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of Yahweh is mighty, and that you will honor Yahweh your God forever.”
