يَشُوع 5

وَعِنْدَمَا سَمِعَ جَمِيعُ مُلُوكِ ٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ ٱلَّذِينَ فِي عَبْرِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ غَرْبًا، وَجَمِيعُ مُلُوكِ ٱلْكَنْعَانِيِّينَ ٱلَّذِينَ عَلَى ٱلْبَحْرِ، أَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ قَدْ يَبَّسَ مِيَاهَ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ مِنْ أَمَامِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ حَتَّى عَبَرْنَا، ذَابَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَلَمْ تَبْقَ فِيهِمْ رُوحٌ بَعْدُ مِنْ جَرَّاءِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ١ 1
As soon as all the kings of the Amorites on the west side of the Jordan, and all the kings of the Canaanites, who were along the coast of the Great Sea, heard that Yahweh had dried up the waters of the Jordan until the people of Israel had crossed over, their hearts melted, and there was no longer any spirit in them because of the people of Israel.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْوَقْتِ قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِيَشُوعَ: «ٱصْنَعْ لِنَفْسِكَ سَكَاكِينَ مِنْ صَوَّانٍ، وَعُدْ فَٱخْتُنْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ ثَانِيَةً». ٢ 2
At that time Yahweh said to Joshua, “Make flint knives and once more circumcise all the males of Israel.”
فَصَنَعَ يَشُوعُ سَكَاكِينَ مِنْ صَوَّانٍ وَخَتَنَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي تَلِّ ٱلْقُلَفِ. ٣ 3
Then Joshua made himself flint knives and he circumcised all the males of Israel at Gibeath Haaraloth.
وَهَذَا هُوَ سَبَبُ خَتْنِ يَشُوعَ إِيَّاهُمْ: أَنَّ جَمِيعَ ٱلشَّعْبِ ٱلْخَارِجِينَ مِنْ مِصْرَ، ٱلذُّكُوِرَ، جَمِيعَ رِجَالِ ٱلْحَرْبِ، مَاتُوا فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ عَلَى ٱلطَّرِيقِ بِخُرُوجِهِمْ مِنْ مِصْرَ. ٤ 4
This is the reason Joshua circumcised them: All the males who had come out of Egypt, including all the men of war, had died in the wilderness along the way, after they came out from Egypt.
لِأَنَّ جَمِيعَ ٱلشَّعْبِ ٱلَّذِينَ خَرَجُوا كَانُوا مَخْتُونِينَ، وَأَمَّا جَمِيعُ ٱلشَّعْبِ ٱلَّذِينَ وُلِدُوا فِي ٱلْقَفْرِ عَلَى ٱلطَّرِيقِ بِخُرُوجِهِمْ مِنْ مِصْرَ فَلَمْ يُخْتَنُوا. ٥ 5
Though all the males who came out of Egypt were circumcised, still, none of the boys born in the wilderness on the way out of Egypt had been circumcised.
لِأَنَّ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ سَارُوا أَرْبَعِينَ سَنَةً فِي ٱلْقَفْرِ حَتَّى فَنِيَ جَمِيعُ ٱلشَّعْبِ، رِجَالُ ٱلْحَرْبِ ٱلْخَارِجِينَ مِنْ مِصْرَ، ٱلَّذِينَ لَمْ يَسْمَعُوا لِقَوْلِ ٱلرَّبِّ، ٱلَّذِينَ حَلَفَ ٱلرَّبُّ لَهُمْ أَنَّهُ لَا يُرِيهِمِ ٱلْأَرْضَ ٱلَّتِي حَلَفَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِآبَائِهِمْ أَنْ يُعْطِيَنَا إِيَّاهَا، ٱلْأَرْضَ ٱلَّتِي تَفِيضُ لَبَنًا وَعَسَلًا. ٦ 6
For the people of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness until all the people, that is, all the men of war who had come out of Egypt, died, because they did not obey the voice of Yahweh. Yahweh swore to them that he would not let them see the land that he had sworn to their ancestors that he would give to us, a land flowing with milk and honey.
وَأَمَّا بَنُوهُمْ فَأَقَامَهُمْ مَكَانَهُمْ. فَإِيَّاهُمْ خَتَنَ يَشُوعُ لِأَنَّهُمْ كَانُوا قُلْفًا، إِذْ لَمْ يَخْتِنُوهُمْ فِي ٱلطَّرِيقِ. ٧ 7
It was their children that Yahweh raised up in their place that Joshua circumcised, because they had not been circumcised on the way.
وَكَانَ بَعْدَمَا ٱنْتَهَى جَمِيعُ ٱلشَّعْبِ مِنْ ٱلِٱخْتِتَانِ، أَنَّهُمْ أَقَامُوا فِي أَمَاكِنِهِمْ فِي ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ حَتَّى بَرِئُوا. ٨ 8
When they were all circumcised, they remained where they were in the camp until they healed.
وَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِيَشُوعَ: «ٱلْيَوْمَ قَدْ دَحْرَجْتُ عَنْكُمْ عَارَ مِصْرَ». فَدُعِيَ ٱسْمُ ذَلِكَ ٱلْمَكَانِ «ٱلْجِلْجَالَ» إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ. ٩ 9
Then Yahweh said to Joshua, “This day I have rolled away the disgrace of Egypt from you.” So, the name of that place has been called Gilgal until this present day.
فَحَلَّ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي ٱلْجِلْجَالِ، وَعَمِلُوا ٱلْفِصْحَ فِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلرَّابِعَ عَشَرَ مِنَ ٱلشَّهْرِ مَسَاءً فِي عَرَبَاتِ أَرِيحَا. ١٠ 10
The people of Israel camped at Gilgal. They kept the Passover on the fourteenth day of the month, in the evening, on the plains of Jericho.
وَأَكَلُوا مِنْ غَلَّةِ ٱلْأَرْضِ فِي ٱلْغَدِ بَعْدَ ٱلْفِصْحِ فَطِيرًا وَفَرِيكًا فِي نَفْسِ ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ. ١١ 11
On the day after Passover, that same day, they ate some of the produce of the land on the day, unleavened bread and roasted grain.
وَٱنْقَطَعَ ٱلْمَنُّ فِي ٱلْغَدِ عِنْدَ أَكْلِهِمْ مِنْ غَلَّةِ ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَلَمْ يَكُنْ بَعْدُ لِبَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ مَنٌّ. فَأَكَلُوا مِنْ مَحْصُولِ أَرْضِ كَنْعَانَ فِي تِلْكَ ٱلسَّنَةِ. ١٢ 12
The manna stopped on the day after they ate the produce of the land. There was no longer manna for the people of Israel, but they ate the produce of the land of Canaan that year.
وَحَدَثَ لَمَّا كَانَ يَشُوعُ عِنْدَ أَرِيحَا أَنَّهُ رَفَعَ عَيْنَيْهِ وَنَظَرَ، وَإِذَا بِرَجُلٍ وَاقِفٍ قُبَالَتَهُ، وَسَيْفُهُ مَسْلُولٌ بِيَدِهِ. فَسَارَ يَشُوعُ إِلَيْهِ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «هَلْ لَنَا أَنْتَ أَوْ لِأَعدَائِنَا؟» ١٣ 13
When Joshua was near Jericho, he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a man was standing in front of him; he had drawn his sword and it was in his hand. Joshua went to him and said, “Are you for us or for our enemies?”
فَقَالَ: «كَلَّا، بَلْ أَنَا رَئِيسُ جُنْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٱلْآنَ أَتَيْتُ». فَسَقَطَ يَشُوعُ عَلَى وَجْهِهِ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَسَجَدَ، وَقَالَ لَهُ: «بِمَاذَا يُكَلِّمُ سَيِّدِي عَبْدَهُ؟» ١٤ 14
He said, “Neither. For I am the commander of the army of Yahweh. Now I have come.” Then Joshua lay facedown on the ground to worship and said to him, “What does my master say to his servant?”
فَقَالَ رَئِيسُ جُنْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ لِيَشُوعَ: «ٱخْلَعْ نَعْلَكَ مِنْ رِجْلِكَ، لِأَنَّ ٱلْمَكَانَ ٱلَّذِي أَنْتَ وَاقِفٌ عَلَيْهِ هُوَ مُقَدَّسٌ». فَفَعَلَ يَشُوعُ كَذَلِكَ. ١٥ 15
The commander of Yahweh's army said to Joshua, “Take off your sandals from your feet, because the place you are standing is holy.” That is what Joshua did.
