يَشُوع 7

وَخَانَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ خِيَانَةً فِي ٱلْحَرَامِ، فَأَخَذَ عَخَانُ بْنُ كَرْمِي بْنِ زَبْدِي بْنِ زَارَحَ مِنْ سِبْطِ يَهُوذَا مِنَ ٱلْحَرَامِ، فَحَمِيَ غَضَبُ ٱلرَّبِّ عَلَى بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ١ 1
But the people of Israel acted unfaithfully regarding the things that were set apart for destruction. Achan son of Karmi son of Zabdi son of Zerah, from the tribe of Judah, took some things that were set apart for destruction, and Yahweh's anger burned against the people of Israel.
وَأَرْسَلَ يَشُوعُ رِجَالًا مِنْ أَرِيحَا إِلَى عَايَ ٱلَّتِي عِنْدَ بَيْتِ آوِنَ شَرْقِيَّ بَيْتِ إِيلَ، وَكَلَّمَهُمْ قَائِلًا: «ٱصْعَدُوا تَجَسَّسُوا ٱلْأَرْضَ». فَصَعِدَ ٱلرِّجَالُ وَتَجَسَّسُوا عَايَ. ٢ 2
Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which was near Beth Aven, east of Bethel. He said to them, “Go up and spy out the land.” So the men went up and spied out Ai.
ثُمَّ رَجَعُوا إِلَى يَشُوعَ وَقَالُوا لَهُ: «لَا يَصْعَدْ كُلُّ ٱلشَّعْبِ، بَلْ يَصْعَدْ نَحْوُ أَلْفَيْ رَجُلٍ أَوْ ثَلَاثَةُ آلَافِ رَجُلٍ وَيَضْرِبُوا عَايَ. لَا تُكَلِّفْ كُلَّ ٱلشَّعْبِ إِلَى هُنَاكَ لِأَنَّهُمْ قَلِيلُونَ». ٣ 3
When they returned to Joshua, they said to him, “Do not send all the people up to Ai. Send only two or three thousand men to go up and attack Ai. Do not make all the people labor in battle, for they are few in number.”
فَصَعِدَ مِنَ ٱلشَّعْبِ إِلَى هُنَاكَ نَحْوُ ثَلَاثَةِ آلَافِ رَجُلٍ، وَهَرَبُوا أَمَامَ أَهْلِ عَايَ. ٤ 4
So only about three thousand men went up from the army, but these ran away from the men of Ai.
فَضَرَبَ مِنْهُمْ أَهْلُ عَايَ نَحْوَ سِتَّةٍ وَثَلَاثِينَ رَجُلًا، وَلَحِقُوهُمْ مِنْ أَمَامِ ٱلْبَابِ إِلَى شَبَارِيمَ وَضَرَبُوهُمْ فِي ٱلْمُنْحَدَرِ. فَذَابَ قَلْبُ ٱلشَّعْبِ وَصَارَ مِثْلَ ٱلْمَاءِ. ٥ 5
The men of Ai killed about thirty-six men as they pursued them from the city gate as far as to the stone quarries, and they killed them as they were going down a hill. The hearts of the people melted and became like water.
فَمَزَّقَ يَشُوعُ ثِيَابَهُ وَسَقَطَ عَلَى وَجْهِهِ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ أَمَامَ تَابُوتِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى ٱلْمَسَاءِ، هُوَ وَشُيُوخُ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَوَضَعُوا تُرَابًا عَلَى رُؤُوسِهِمْ. ٦ 6
Then Joshua tore his garments. He and the elders of Israel put dust on their heads and lay facedown on the ground in front of the ark of Yahweh, remaining there until evening.
وَقَالَ يَشُوعُ: «آهِ يَا سَيِّدُ ٱلرَّبُّ! لِمَاذَا عَبَّرْتَ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبَ ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ تَعْبِيرًا لِكَيْ تَدْفَعَنَا إِلَى يَدِ ٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ لِيُبِيدُونَا؟ لَيْتَنَا ٱرْتَضَيْنَا وَسَكَنَّا فِي عَبْرِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ. ٧ 7
Then Joshua said, “Ah, Yahweh Lord, why have you brought this people across the Jordan at all? To give us into the hands of the Amorites to destroy us? If only we made a different decision and we had stayed on the other side of the Jordan!
أَسْأَلُكَ يَا سَيِّدُ: مَاذَا أَقُولُ بَعْدَمَا حَوَّلَ إِسْرَائِيلُ قَفَاهُ أَمَامَ أَعْدَائِهِ؟ ٨ 8
Lord, what can I say, after Israel has turned their backs before their enemies?
فَيَسْمَعُ ٱلْكَنْعَانِيُّونَ وَجَمِيعُ سُكَّانِ ٱلْأَرْضِ وَيُحِيطُونَ بِنَا وَيَقْرِضُونَ ٱسْمَنَا مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ. وَمَاذَا تَصْنَعُ لِٱسْمِكَ ٱلْعَظِيمِ؟». ٩ 9
For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land will hear of it. They will surround us and make the people of the earth forget our name. What will you do for your great name?”
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِيَشُوعَ: «قُمْ! لِمَاذَا أَنْتَ سَاقِطٌ عَلَى وَجْهِكَ؟ ١٠ 10
Yahweh said to Joshua, “Get up! Why are you lying there on your face?
قَدْ أَخْطَأَ إِسْرَائِيلُ، بَلْ تَعَدَّوْا عَهْدِي ٱلَّذِي أَمَرْتُهُمْ بِهِ، بَلْ أَخَذُوا مِنَ ٱلْحَرَامِ، بَلْ سَرَقُوا، بَلْ أَنْكَرُوا، بَلْ وَضَعُوا فِي أَمْتِعَتِهِمْ. ١١ 11
Israel has sinned. They have broken my covenant which I commanded them. They have stolen some of the things that were set apart. They have stolen and then also hidden their sin by putting what they have taken among their own belongings.
فَلَمْ يَتَمَكَّنْ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ لِلثُّبُوتِ أَمَامَ أَعْدَائِهِمْ. يُدِيرُونَ قَفَاهُمْ أَمَامَ أَعْدَائِهِمْ لِأَنَّهُمْ مَحْرُومُونَ، وَلَا أَعُودُ أَكُونُ مَعَكُمْ إِنْ لَمْ تُبِيدُوا ٱلْحَرَامَ مِنْ وَسَطِكُمْ. ١٢ 12
As a result, the people of Israel cannot stand before their enemies. They turned their backs from their enemies because they themselves have been set apart for destruction. I will not be with you any more unless you destroy the things that should have been destroyed, but are still among you.
قُمْ قَدِّسِ ٱلشَّعْبَ وَقُلْ: تَقَدَّسُوا لِلْغَدِ. لِأَنَّهُ هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ: فِي وَسَطِكَ حَرَامٌ يَا إِسْرَائِيلُ، فَلَا تَتَمَكَّنُ لِلثُّبُوتِ أَمَامَ أَعْدَائِكَ حَتَّى تَنْزِعُوا ٱلْحَرَامَ مِنْ وَسَطِكُمْ. ١٣ 13
Get up! Consecrate the people to me and say to them, 'Consecrate yourselves for tomorrow. For Yahweh, the God of Israel says, “There are things set apart to be destroyed that are still among you, Israel. You cannot stand against your enemies until you remove from among you all the things that were set apart to be destroyed.”
فَتَتَقَدَّمُونَ فِي ٱلْغَدِ بِأَسْبَاطِكُمْ، وَيَكُونُ أَنَّ ٱلسِّبْطَ ٱلَّذِي يَأْخُذُهُ ٱلرَّبُّ يَتَقَدَّمُ بِعَشَائِرِهِ، وَٱلْعَشِيرَةُ ٱلَّتِي يَأْخُذُهَا ٱلرَّبُّ تَتَقَدَّمُ بِبُيُوتِهَا، وَٱلْبَيْتُ ٱلَّذِي يَأْخُذُهُ ٱلرَّبُّ يَتَقَدَّمُ بِرِجَالِهِ. ١٤ 14
In the morning, you must present yourselves by your tribes. The tribe that Yahweh selects will come near by their clans. The clan that Yahweh selects must come near by each household. The household that Yahweh selects must come near one by one.
وَيَكُونُ ٱلْمَأْخُوذُ بِٱلْحَرَامِ يُحْرَقُ بِٱلنَّارِ هُوَ وَكُلُّ مَا لَهُ، لِأَنَّهُ تَعَدَّى عَهْدَ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَلِأَنَّهُ عَمِلَ قَبَاحَةً فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ». ١٥ 15
It will happen that the one who is selected and who has those things that were set apart for destruction, he will be burned, he and all he has, because he has broken the covenant of Yahweh and because he has done a disgraceful thing in Israel.'”
فَبَكَّرَ يَشُوعُ فِي ٱلْغَدِ وَقَدَّمَ إِسْرَائِيلَ بِأَسْبَاطِهِ، فَأُخِذَ سِبْطُ يَهُوذَا. ١٦ 16
So, Joshua got up early in the morning and brought Israel near, tribe by tribe, and the tribe of Judah was selected.
ثُمَّ قَدَّمَ قَبِيلَةَ يَهُوذَا فَأُخِذَتْ عَشِيرَةُ ٱلزَّارَحِيِّينَ. ثُمَّ قَدَّمَ عَشِيرَةَ ٱلزَّارَحِيِّينَ بِرِجَالِهِمْ فَأُخِذَ زَبْدِي. ١٧ 17
Joshua brought the clans of Judah near, and the clan of the Zerahites was selected. He brought near the clan of the Zerahites person by person, and Zabdi was selected.
فَقَدَّمَ بَيْتَهُ بِرِجَالِهِ فَأُخِذَ عَخَانُ بْنُ كَرْمِي بْنِ زَبْدِي بْنِ زَارَحَ مِنْ سِبْطِ يَهُوذَا. ١٨ 18
He brought Zabdi's household near, person by person, and Achan son of Karmi, son of Zabdi, son of Zerah, from the tribe of Judah, was selected.
فَقَالَ يَشُوعُ لِعَخَانَ: «يَا ٱبْنِي، أَعْطِ ٱلْآنَ مَجْدًا لِلرَّبِّ إِلَهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَٱعْتَرِفْ لَهُ وَأَخْبِرْنِي ٱلْآنَ مَاذَا عَمِلْتَ. لَا تُخْفِ عَنِّي». ١٩ 19
Then Joshua said to Achan, “My son, tell the truth before Yahweh, the God of Israel, and give your confession to him. Please tell me what you have done. Do not hide it from me.”
فَأَجَابَ عَخَانُ يَشُوعَ وَقَالَ: «حَقًّا إِنِّي قَدْ أَخْطَأْتُ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَصَنَعْتُ كَذَا وَكَذَا. ٢٠ 20
Achan answered Joshua, “Truly, I have sinned against Yahweh, the God of Israel. This is what I did:
رَأَيْتُ فِي ٱلْغَنِيمَةِ رِدَاءً شِنْعَارِيًّا نَفِيسًا، وَمِئَتَيْ شَاقِلِ فِضَّةٍ، وَلِسَانَ ذَهَبٍ وَزْنُهُ خَمْسُونَ شَاقِلًا، فَٱشْتَهَيْتُهَا وَأَخَذْتُهَا. وَهَا هِيَ مَطْمُورَةٌ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ فِي وَسَطِ خَيْمَتِي، وَٱلْفِضَّةُ تَحْتَهَا». ٢١ 21
When I saw among the plunder a beautiful coat from Babylon, two hundred shekels of silver, and a bar of gold weighing fifty shekels, I desired them and took them. They are hidden in the ground in the middle of my tent, and the silver is under it.”
فَأَرْسَلَ يَشُوعُ رُسُلًا فَرَكَضُوا إِلَى ٱلْخَيْمَةِ وَإِذَا هِيَ مَطْمُورَةٌ فِي خَيْمَتِهِ وَٱلْفِضَّةُ تَحْتَهَا. ٢٢ 22
Joshua sent messengers, who ran to the tent and there were the things. When they looked, they found them hidden in his own tent, and the silver under them.
فَأَخَذُوهَا مِنْ وَسَطِ ٱلْخَيْمَةِ وَأَتَوْا بِهَا إِلَى يَشُوعَ وَإِلَى جَمِيعِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَبَسَطُوهَا أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٢٣ 23
They took the items from the middle of the tent and brought them to Joshua and to all the people of Israel. They poured them out before Yahweh.
فَأَخَذَ يَشُوعُ عَخَانَ بْنَ زَارَحَ وَٱلْفِضَّةَ وَٱلرِّدَاءَ وَلِسَانَ ٱلذَّهَبِ وَبَنِيهِ وَبَنَاتِهِ وَبَقَرَهُ وَحَمِيرَهُ وَغَنَمَهُ وَخَيْمَتَهُ وَكُلَّ مَا لَهُ، وَجَمِيعُ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَعَهُ، وَصَعِدُوا بِهِمْ إِلَى وَادِي عَخُورَ. ٢٤ 24
Then Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan son of Zerah, and the silver, the coat, the bar of gold, his sons and daughters, his oxen, his donkeys, his sheep, his tent, and all that he had, and they brought them up to the Valley of Achor.
فَقَالَ يَشُوعُ: «كَيْفَ كَدَّرْتَنَا؟ يُكَدِّرُكَ ٱلرَّبُّ فِي هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ!». فَرَجَمَهُ جَمِيعُ إِسْرَائِيلَ بِٱلْحِجَارَةِ وَأَحْرَقُوهُمْ بِٱلنَّارِ وَرَمَوْهُمْ بِٱلْحِجَارَةِ، ٢٥ 25
Then Joshua said, “Why have you troubled us? Yahweh will trouble you today.” All Israel stoned him with stones. Then they stoned the rest with stones and burned them with fire.
وَأَقَامُوا فَوْقَهُ رُجْمَةَ حِجَارَةٍ عَظِيمَةً إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ. فَرَجَعَ ٱلرَّبُّ عَنْ حُمُوِّ غَضَبِهِ. وَلِذَلِكَ دُعِيَ ٱسْمُ ذَلِكَ ٱلْمَكَانِ «وَادِيَ عَخُورَ» إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ. ٢٦ 26
They set up over him a great heap of stones that is here until this day. Yahweh turned away his burning anger. Therefore the name of the place is the Valley of Achor until this present day.
