اَلْقُضَاة 20

فَخَرَجَ جَمِيعُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَٱجْتَمَعَتِ ٱلْجَمَاعَةُ كَرَجُلٍ وَاحِدٍ، مِنْ دَانَ إِلَى بِئْرِ سَبْعٍ مَعَ أَرْضِ جِلْعَادَ، إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ فِي ٱلْمِصْفَاةِ. ١ 1
Then all the people of Israel came out as one man, from Dan to Beersheba, including the land of Gilead also, and they assembled together before Yahweh at Mizpah.
وَوَقَفَ وُجُوهُ جَمِيعِ ٱلشَّعْبِ، جَمِيعُ أَسْبَاطِ إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي مَجْمَعِ شَعْبِ ٱللهِ، أَرْبَعُ مِئَةِ أَلْفِ رَاجِلٍ مُخْتَرِطِي ٱلسَّيْفِ. ٢ 2
The leaders of all the people, of all the tribes of Israel, took their places in the assembly of the people of God—400,000 men on foot, who were ready to fight with the sword.
فَسَمِعَ بَنُو بَنْيَامِينَ أَنَّ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ قَدْ صَعِدُوا إِلَى ٱلْمِصْفَاةِ. وَقَالَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ: «تَكَلَّمُوا، كَيْفَ كَانَتْ هَذِهِ ٱلْقَبَاحَةُ؟» ٣ 3
Now the people of Benjamin heard that the people of Israel had gone up to Mizpah. The people of Israel said, “Tell us how this wicked thing happened.”
فَأَجَابَ ٱلرَّجُلُ ٱللَّاوِيُّ بَعْلُ ٱلْمَرْأَةِ ٱلْمَقْتُولَةِ وَقَالَ: «دَخَلْتُ أَنَا وَسُرِّيَّتِي إِلَى جِبْعَةَ ٱلَّتِي لِبَنْيَامِينَ لِنَبِيتَ. ٤ 4
The Levite, the husband of the woman who had been murdered, answered, “I came to Gibeah in the territory that belongs to Benjamin, I and my concubine, to spend the night.
فَقَامَ عَلَيَّ أَصْحَابُ جِبْعَةَ وَأَحَاطُوا عَلَيَّ بِٱلْبَيْتِ لَيْلًا وَهَمُّوا بِقَتْلِي، وَأَذَلُّوا سُرِّيَّتِي حَتَّى مَاتَتْ. ٥ 5
During the night, the leaders of Gibeah attacked me, surrounding the house, intending to kill me. They raped my concubine, and she died.
فَأَمْسَكْتُ سُرِّيَّتِي وَقَطَّعْتُهَا وَأَرْسَلْتُهَا إِلَى جَمِيعِ حُقُولِ مُلْكِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، لِأَنَّهُمْ فَعَلُوا رَذَالَةً وَقَبَاحَةً فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٦ 6
I took my concubine and cut her body into pieces, and sent them into each region of Israel's inheritance, because they have committed such wickedness and outrage in Israel.
هُوَذَا كُلُّكُمْ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ. هَاتُوا حُكْمَكُمْ وَرَأْيَكُمْ هَهُنَا». ٧ 7
Now, all you Israelites, give your advice and counsel here.”
فَقَامَ جَمِيعُ ٱلشَّعْبِ كَرَجُلٍ وَاحِدٍ وَقَالُوا: «لَا يَذْهَبُ أَحَدٌ مِنَّا إِلَى خَيْمَتِهِ وَلَا يَمِيلُ أَحَدٌ إِلَى بَيْتِهِ. ٨ 8
All the people arose together as one man, and they said, “None of us will go to his tent, and none of us will return to his house!
وَٱلْآنَ هَذَا هُوَ ٱلْأَمْرُ ٱلَّذِي نَعْمَلُهُ بِجِبْعَةَ. عَلَيْهَا بِٱلْقُرْعَةِ. ٩ 9
But now this is what we must do to Gibeah: We will attack it as the lot directs us.
فَنَأْخُذُ عَشَرَةَ رِجَالٍ مِنَ ٱلْمِئَةِ مِنْ جَمِيعِ أَسْبَاطِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَمِئَةً مِنَ ٱلْأَلْفِ، وَأَلْفًا مِنَ ٱلرِّبْوَةِ، لِأَجْلِ أَخْذِ زَادٍ لِلشَّعْبِ لِيَفْعَلُوا عِنْدَ دُخُولِهِمْ جِبْعَةَ بِبَنْيَامِينَ حَسَبَ كُلِّ ٱلْقَبَاحَةِ ٱلَّتِي فَعَلَتْ بِإِسْرَائِيلَ». ١٠ 10
We will take ten men of a hundred throughout all the tribes of Israel, and one hundred of a thousand, and one thousand of ten thousand, to get provisions for these people, so that when they come to Gibeah in Benjamin, they may punish them for the wickedness they committed in Israel.”
فَٱجْتَمَعَ جَمِيعُ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ عَلَى ٱلْمَدِينَةِ مُتَّحِدِينَ كَرَجُلٍ وَاحِدٍ. ١١ 11
So all the soldiers of Israel assembled against the city, as one man.
وَأَرْسَلَ أَسْبَاطُ إِسْرَائِيلَ رِجَالًا إِلَى جَمِيعِ أَسْبَاطِ بَنْيَامِينَ قَائِلِينَ: «مَا هَذَا ٱلشَّرُّ ٱلَّذِي صَارَ فِيكُمْ؟ ١٢ 12
The tribes of Israel sent men through all the tribe of Benjamin, saying, “What is this wickedness that was done among you?
فَٱلْآنَ سَلِّمُوا ٱلْقَوْمَ بَنِي بَلِيَّعَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ فِي جِبْعَةَ لِكَيْ نَقْتُلَهُمْ وَنَنْزِعَ ٱلشَّرَّ مِنْ إِسْرَائِيلَ». فَلَمْ يُرِدْ بَنُو بَنْيَامِينَ أَنْ يَسْمَعُوا لِصَوْتِ إِخْوَتِهِمْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ١٣ 13
Therefore, give us those wicked men of Gibeah, so we may put them to death, and so we will completely remove this evil from Israel.” But the Benjamites would not listen to the voice of their brothers, the people of Israel.
فَٱجْتَمَعَ بَنُو بَنْيَامِينَ مِنَ ٱلْمُدُنِ إِلَى جِبْعَةَ لِكَيْ يَخْرُجُوا لِمُحَارَبَةِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ١٤ 14
Then the people of Benjamin came together out of the cities to Gibeah to get ready to fight against the people of Israel.
وَعُدَّ بَنُو بَنْيَامِينَ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ مِنَ ٱلْمُدُنِ سِتَّةً وَعِشْرِينَ أَلْفَ رَجُلٍ مُخْتَرِطِي ٱلسَّيْفِ، مَا عَدَا سُكَّانَ جِبْعَةَ ٱلَّذِينَ عُدُّوا سَبْعَ مِئَةِ رَجُلٍ مُنْتَخَبِينَ. ١٥ 15
The people of Benjamin brought together from their cities to fight on that day twenty-six thousand soldiers who were trained to fight with the sword. In addition, there were seven hundred of their chosen men from the inhabitants of Gibeah.
مِنْ جَمِيعِ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبِ سَبْعُ مِئَةِ رَجُلٍ مُنْتَخَبُونَ عُسْرٌ. كُلُّ هَؤُلَاءِ يَرْمُونَ ٱلْحَجَرَ بِٱلْمِقْلَاعِ عَلَى ٱلشَّعْرَةِ وَلَا يُخْطِئُونَ. ١٦ 16
Among all these soldiers were seven hundred chosen men who were left-handed. Each of them could sling a stone at a hair and not miss.
وَعُدَّ رِجَالُ إِسْرَائِيلَ، مَا عَدَا بَنْيَامِينَ، أَرْبَعَ مِئَةِ أَلْفِ رَجُلٍ مُخْتَرِطِي ٱلسَّيْفِ. كُلُّ هَؤُلَاءِ رِجَالُ حَرْبٍ. ١٧ 17
The people of Israel, not counting the number from Benjamin, numbered 400,000 men, who were trained to fight with the sword. All of these were men of war.
فَقَامُوا وَصَعِدُوا إِلَى بَيْتِ إِيلَ وَسَأَلُوا ٱللهَ وَقَالَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ: «مَنْ يَصْعَدُ مِنَّا أَوَّلًا لِمُحَارَبَةِ بَنِي بَنْيَامِينَ؟» فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «يَهُوذَا أَوَّلًا». ١٨ 18
The people of Israel arose, went up to Bethel, and asked for advice from God. They asked, “Who first will attack the people of Benjamin for us?” Yahweh said, “Judah will attack first.”
فَقَامَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي ٱلصَّبَاحِ وَنَزَلُوا عَلَى جِبْعَةَ. ١٩ 19
The people of Israel got up in the morning and they moved their camp near Gibeah.
وَخَرَجَ رِجَالُ إِسْرَائِيلَ لِمُحَارَبَةِ بَنْيَامِينَ، وَصَفَّ رِجَالُ إِسْرَائِيلَ أَنْفُسَهُمْ لِلْحَرْبِ عِنْدَ جِبْعَةَ. ٢٠ 20
The people of Israel went out to fight against Benjamin. They set up their battle positions against them at Gibeah.
فَخَرَجَ بَنُو بَنْيَامِينَ مِنْ جِبْعَةَ وَأَهْلَكُوا مِنْ إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱثْنَيْنِ وَعِشْرِينَ أَلْفَ رَجُلٍ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٢١ 21
The people of Benjamin came out of Gibeah, and they killed twenty-two thousand men of the army of Israel on that day.
وَتَشَدَّدَ ٱلشَّعْبُ، رِجَالُ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَعَادُوا فَٱصْطَفُّوا لِلْحَرْبِ فِي ٱلْمَكَانِ ٱلَّذِي ٱصْطَفُّوا فِيهِ فِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلْأَوَّلِ. ٢٢ 22
But the people of Israel strengthened themselves and they formed the battle line in the same place where they had taken positions on the first day.
ثُمَّ صَعِدَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ وَبَكَوْا أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى ٱلْمَسَاءِ، وَسَأَلُوا ٱلرَّبَّ قَائِلِينَ: «هَلْ أَعُودُ أَتَقَدَّمُ لِمُحَارَبَةِ بَنِي بَنْيَامِينَ أَخِي؟» فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «ٱصْعَدُوا إِلَيْهِ». ٢٣ 23
Then the people of Israel went up and they wept before Yahweh until evening, and they sought direction from Yahweh. They said, “Should we go again to fight against our brothers, the people of Benjamin?” Yahweh said, “Attack them!”
فَتَقَدَّمَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى بَنِي بَنْيَامِينَ فِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلثَّانِي، ٢٤ 24
So the people of Israel went against the soldiers of Benjamin the second day.
فَخَرَجَ بَنْيَامِينُ لِلِقَائِهِمْ مِنْ جِبْعَةَ فِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلثَّانِي، وَأَهْلَكَ مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ أَيْضًا ثَمَانِيَةَ عَشَرَ أَلْفَ رَجُلٍ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ. كُلُّ هَؤُلَاءِ مُخْتَرِطُو ٱلسَّيْفِ. ٢٥ 25
On the second day, Benjamin went out against them from Gibeah and they killed eighteen thousand men from the people of Israel. All were men who trained to fight with the sword.
فَصَعِدَ جَمِيعُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ وَكُلُّ ٱلشَّعْبِ وَجَاءُوا إِلَى بَيْتِ إِيلَ وَبَكَوْا وَجَلَسُوا هُنَاكَ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَصَامُوا ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمَ إِلَى ٱلْمَسَاءِ، وَأَصْعَدُوا مُحْرَقَاتٍ وَذَبَائِحَ سَلَامَةٍ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٢٦ 26
Then all the soldiers of Israel and all the people went up to Bethel and wept, and there they sat before Yahweh and they fasted that day until the evening and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before Yahweh.
وَسَأَلَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلرَّبَّ، وَهُنَاكَ تَابُوتُ عَهْدِ ٱللهِ فِي تِلْكَ ٱلْأَيَّامِ، ٢٧ 27
The people of Israel asked Yahweh—for the ark of the covenant of God was there in those days,
وَفِينَحَاسُ بْنُ أَلِعَازَارَ بْنِ هَارُونَ وَاقِفٌ أَمَامَهُ فِي تِلْكَ ٱلْأَيَّامِ، قَائِلِينَ: «أَأَعُودُ أَيْضًا لِلْخُرُوجِ لِمُحَارَبَةِ بَنِي بَنْيَامِينَ أَخِي أَمْ أَكُفُّ؟» فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: «ٱصْعَدُوا، لِأَنِّي غَدًا أَدْفَعُهُمْ لِيَدِكَ». ٢٨ 28
and Phinehas, son of Eleazar son of Aaron, was serving before the ark in those days—”Should we go out to battle once more against the people of Benjamin, our brothers, or stop?” Yahweh said, “Attack, for tomorrow I will help you defeat them.”
وَوَضَعَ إِسْرَائِيلُ كَمِينًا عَلَى جِبْعَةَ مُحِيطًا. ٢٩ 29
So Israel set men in secret places around Gibeah.
وَصَعِدَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ عَلَى بَنِي بَنْيَامِينَ فِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلثَّالِثِ وَٱصْطَفُّوا عِنْدَ جِبْعَةَ كَٱلْمَرَّةِ ٱلْأُولَى وَٱلثَّانِيَةِ. ٣٠ 30
The people of Israel fought against the people of Benjamin for the third day, and they formed their battle lines against Gibeah as they had done before.
فَخَرَجَ بَنُو بَنْيَامِينَ لِلِقَاءِ ٱلشَّعْبِ وَٱنْجَذَبُوا عَنِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ، وَأَخَذُوا يَضْرِبُونَ مِنَ ٱلشَّعْبِ قَتْلَى كَٱلْمَرَّةِ ٱلْأُولَى وَٱلثَّانِيَةِ فِي ٱلسِّكَكِ ٱلَّتِي إِحْدَاهَا تَصْعَدُ إِلَى بَيْتِ إِيلَ، وَٱلْأُخْرَى إِلَى جِبْعَةَ فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ، نَحْوَ ثَلَاثِينَ رَجُلًا مِنْ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٣١ 31
The people of Benjamin went and fought against the people, and they were drawn away from the city. They began to kill some of the people. There were about thirty men of Israel who died in the fields and on the roads. One of the roads went up to Bethel, and the other went to Gibeah.
وَقَالَ بَنُو بَنْيَامِينَ: «إِنَّهُمْ مُنْهَزِمُونَ أَمَامَنَا كَمَا فِي ٱلْأَوَّلِ». وَأَمَّا بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ فَقَالُوا: «لِنَهْرُبْ وَنَجْذِبْهُمْ عَنِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ إِلَى ٱلسِّكَكِ». ٣٢ 32
Then the people of Benjamin said, “They are defeated and they are running away from us, just as at first.” But the soldiers of Israel said, “Let us run back and draw them away from the city to the roads.”
وَقَامَ جَمِيعُ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ أَمَاكِنِهِمْ وَٱصْطَفُّوا فِي بَعْلِ تَامَارَ، وَثَارَ كَمِينُ إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ مَكَانِهِ مِنْ عَرَاءِ جِبْعَةَ. ٣٣ 33
All the people of Israel rose up out of their places and formed themselves into lines for battle at Baal Tamar. Then the soldiers of Israel who had been hiding in secret places ran out from their places from Maareh Gibeah.
وَجَاءَ مِنْ مُقَابِلِ جِبْعَةَ عَشَرَةُ آلَافِ رَجُلٍ مُنْتَخَبُونَ مِنْ كُلِّ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَكَانَتِ ٱلْحَرْبُ شَدِيدَةً، وَهُمْ لَمْ يَعْلَمُوا أَنَّ ٱلشَّرَّ قَدْ مَسَّهُمْ. ٣٤ 34
There came out against Gibeah ten thousand chosen men out of all Israel, and the fighting was fierce, but the Benjamites did not know that disaster was close to them.
فَضَرَبَ ٱلرَّبُّ بَنْيَامِينَ أَمَامَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَأَهْلَكَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ بَنْيَامِينَ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ خَمْسَةً وَعِشْرِينَ أَلْفَ رَجُلٍ وَمِئَةَ رَجُلٍ. كُلُّ هَؤُلَاءِ مُخْتَرِطُو ٱلسَّيْفِ. ٣٥ 35
Yahweh defeated Benjamin before Israel. On that day, the soldiers of Israel killed 25,100 men of Benjamin. All these who died were those who had been trained to fight with the sword.
وَرَأَى بَنُو بَنْيَامِينَ أَنَّهُمْ قَدِ ٱنْكَسَرُوا. وَأَعْطَى رِجَالُ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَكَانًا لِبَنْيَامِينَ لِأَنَّهُمُ ٱتَّكَلُوا عَلَى ٱلْكَمِينِ ٱلَّذِي وَضَعُوهُ عَلَى جِبْعَةَ. ٣٦ 36
So the soldiers of Benjamin saw they were defeated. The men of Israel had given ground to Benjamin, because they were counting on the men they had placed in hidden positions outside Gibeah.
فَأَسْرَعَ ٱلْكَمِينُ وَٱقْتَحَمُوا جِبْعَةَ، وَزَحَفَ ٱلْكَمِينُ وَضَرَبَ ٱلْمَدِينَةَ كُلَّهَا بِحَدِّ ٱلسَّيْفِ. ٣٧ 37
Then the men who were hiding got up and hurried and they rushed into Gibeah, and they struck all the city with the edge of the sword.
وَكَانَ ٱلْمِيعَادُ بَيْنَ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَبَيْنَ ٱلْكَمِينِ، إِصْعَادَهُمْ بِكَثْرَةٍ، عَلَامَةَ ٱلدُخَانِ مِنَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ. ٣٨ 38
The arranged signal between the soldiers of Israel and the men hiding in secret would be that a great cloud of smoke would rise up out of the city.
وَلَمَّا ٱنْقَلَبَ رِجَالُ إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي ٱلْحَرْبِ ٱبْتَدَأَ بَنْيَامِينُ يَضْرِبُونَ قَتْلَى مِنْ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ نَحْوَ ثَلَاثِينَ رَجُلًا، لِأَنَّهُمْ قَالُوا: «إِنَّمَا هُمْ مُنْهَزِمُونَ مِنْ أَمَامِنَا كَٱلْحَرْبِ ٱلْأُولَى». ٣٩ 39
When the signal was sent the soldiers of Israel would turn from the battle. Now Benjamin began to attack and they killed about thirty men of Israel, and they said, “It is sure that they are defeated before us, as in the first battle.”
وَلَمَّا ٱبْتَدَأَتِ ٱلْعَلَامَةُ تَصْعَدُ مِنَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ، عَمُودَ دُخَانٍ، ٱلْتَفَتَ بَنْيَامِينُ إِلَى وَرَائِهِ وَإِذَا بِٱلْمَدِينَةِ كُلِّهَا تَصْعَدُ نَحْوَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ. ٤٠ 40
But when a pillar of smoke began to rise up out of the city, the Benjamites turned and saw the smoke rising to the sky from the whole city.
وَرَجَعَ رِجَالُ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَهَرَبَ رِجَالُ بَنْيَامِينَ بِرَعْدَةٍ، لِأَنَّهُمْ رَأَوْا أَنَّ ٱلشَّرَّ قَدْ مَسَّهُمْ. ٤١ 41
Then the people of Israel turned against them. The men of Benjamin were terrified, for they saw that disaster had come on them.
وَرَجَعُوا أَمَامَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي طَرِيقِ ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ، وَلَكِنَّ ٱلْقِتَالَ أَدْرَكَهُمْ، وَٱلَّذِينَ مِنَ ٱلْمُدُنِ أَهْلَكُوهُمْ فِي وَسَطِهِمْ. ٤٢ 42
So they ran away from the people of Israel, escaping on the way to the wilderness. But the fighting overtook them. The soldiers of Israel came out of the cities and killed them where they stood.
فَحَاوَطُوا بَنْيَامِينَ وَطَارَدُوهُمْ بِسُهُولَةٍ، وَأَدْرَكُوهُمْ مُقَابَلَ جِبْعَةَ لِجِهَةِ شُرُوقِ ٱلشَّمْسِ. ٤٣ 43
They surrounded the Benjamites, chased them and trampled them down at Nohah, all the way to the east side of Gibeah.
فَسَقَطَ مِنْ بَنْيَامِينَ ثَمَانِيَةَ عَشَرَ أَلْفَ رَجُلٍ، جَمِيعُ هَؤُلَاءِ ذَوُو بَأْسٍ. ٤٤ 44
From the tribe of Benjamin, eighteen thousand people died, all of them men who were distinguished in battle.
فَدَارُوا وَهَرَبُوا إِلَى ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ إِلَى صَخْرَةِ رِمُّونَ. فَٱلْتَقَطُوا مِنْهُمْ فِي ٱلسِّكَكِ خَمْسَةَ آلَافِ رَجُلٍ، وَشَدُّوا وَرَاءَهُمْ إِلَى جِدْعُومَ، وَقَتَلُوا مِنْهُمْ أَلْفَيْ رَجُلٍ. ٤٥ 45
They turned and fled toward the wilderness to the rock of Rimmon. The Israelites killed five thousand more of them along the roads. They kept going after them, following them closely all the way to Gidom, and there they killed two thousand more.
وَكَانَ جَمِيعُ ٱلسَّاقِطِينَ مِنْ بَنْيَامِينَ خَمْسَةً وَعِشْرِينَ أَلْفَ رَجُلٍ مُخْتَرِطِي ٱلسَّيْفِ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ. جَمِيعُ هَؤُلَاءِ ذَوُو بَأْسٍ. ٤٦ 46
All the soldiers of Benjamin who fell that day were twenty-five thousand—men who were trained to fight with the sword; all of them were distinguished in battle.
وَدَارَ وَهَرَبَ إِلَى ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ إِلَى صَخْرَةِ رِمُّونَ سِتُّ مِئَةِ رَجُلٍ، وَأَقَامُوا فِي صَخْرَةِ رِمُّونَ أَرْبَعَةَ أَشْهُرٍ. ٤٧ 47
But six hundred men turned and fled to the wilderness, toward the rock of Rimmon. For four months they stayed at the rock of Rimmon.
وَرَجَعَ رِجَالُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى بَنِي بَنْيَامِينَ وَضَرَبُوهُمْ بِحَدِّ ٱلسَّيْفِ مِنَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ بِأَسْرِهَا، حَتَّى ٱلْبَهَائِمَ، حَتَّى كُلَّ مَا وُجِدَ. وَأَيْضًا جَمِيعُ ٱلْمُدُنِ ٱلَّتِي وُجِدَتْ أَحْرَقُوهَا بِٱلنَّارِ. ٤٨ 48
The soldiers of Israel turned back against the people of Benjamin and struck them with the edge of the sword, the city, including the animals and everything that they found. They also burned down every town in their path.
