مَرَاثِي إِرْمِيَا 2

كَيْفَ غَطَّى ٱلسَّيِّدُ بِغَضَبِهِ ٱبْنَةَ صِهْيَوْنَ بِٱلظَّلَامِ! أَلْقَى مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ فَخْرَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَلَمْ يَذْكُرْ مَوْطِئَ قَدَمَيْهِ فِي يَوْمِ غَضَبِهِ. ١ 1
The Lord has covered the daughter of Zion under the cloud of his anger. He has thrown the splendor of Israel down from heaven to earth. He has not remembered his footstool on the day of his anger.
ٱبْتَلَعَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ وَلَمْ يَشْفِقْ كُلَّ مَسَاكِنِ يَعْقُوبَ. نَقَضَ بِسَخَطِهِ حُصُونَ بِنْتِ يَهُوذَا. أَوْصَلَهَا إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ. نَجَّسَ ٱلْمَمْلَكَةَ وَرُؤَسَاءَهَا. ٢ 2
The Lord has swallowed up and has had no compassion on all the towns of Jacob. In the days of his anger he has thrown down the fortified cities of the daughter of Judah; in dishonor he has brought down to the ground the kingdom and its rulers.
عَضَبَ بِحُمُوِّ غَضَبِهِ كُلَّ قَرْنٍ لِإِسْرَائِيلَ. رَدَّ إِلَى ٱلْوَرَاءِ يَمِينَهُ أَمَامَ ٱلْعَدُوِّ، وَٱشْتَعَلَ فِي يَعْقُوبَ مِثْلَ نَارٍ مُلْتَهِبَةٍ تَأْكُلُ مَا حَوَالَيْهَا. ٣ 3
With fierce anger he has cut off every horn of Israel. He has withdrawn his right hand from before the enemy. He has burned up Jacob like a blazing fire that devours everything around it.
مَدَّ قَوْسَهُ كَعَدُوٍّ. نَصَبَ يَمِينَهُ كَمُبْغِضٍ وَقَتَلَ كُلَّ مُشْتَهَيَاتِ ٱلْعَيْنِ فِي خِبَاءِ بِنْتِ صِهْيَوْنَ. سَكَبَ كَنَارٍ غَيْظَهُ. ٤ 4
Like an enemy he has bent his bow toward us, with his right is ready to shoot. He has slaughtered all who had been so pleasing to him in the tent of the daughter of Zion; he has poured out his wrath like fire.
صَارَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ كَعَدُوٍّ. ٱبْتَلَعَ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٱبْتَلَعَ كُلَّ قُصُورِهِ. أَهْلَكَ حُصُونَهُ، وَأَكْثَرَ فِي بِنْتِ يَهُوذَا ٱلنَّوْحَ وَٱلْحُزْنَ. ٥ 5
The Lord has become like an enemy. He has swallowed up Israel. He has swallowed up all her palaces. He has destroyed her strongholds. He has increased mourning and lamentation within the daughter of Judah.
وَنَزَعَ كَمَا مِنْ جَنَّةٍ مَظَلَّتَهُ. أَهْلَكَ مُجْتَمَعَهُ. أَنْسَى ٱلرَّبُّ فِي صِهْيَوْنَ ٱلْمَوْسِمَ وَٱلسَّبْتَ، وَرَذَلَ بِسَخَطِ غَضَبِهِ ٱلْمَلِكَ وَٱلْكَاهِنَ. ٦ 6
He has attacked his tabernacle like a garden hut. He has destroyed the place of the solemn assembly. Yahweh has caused both solemn assembly and Sabbath to be forgotten in Zion, for he has despised both king and priest in the indignation of his anger.
كَرِهَ ٱلسَّيِّدُ مَذْبَحَهُ. رَذَلَ مَقْدِسَهُ. حَصَرَ فِي يَدِ ٱلْعَدُوِّ أَسْوَارَ قُصُورِهَا. أَطْلَقُوا ٱلصَّوْتَ فِي بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ كَمَا فِي يَوْمِ ٱلْمَوْسِمِ. ٧ 7
The Lord has rejected his altar and disowned his sanctuary. He has given over the walls of her palaces into the hand of the enemy. They have raised a shout in the house of Yahweh, as on the day of an appointed feast.
قَصَدَ ٱلرَّبُّ أَنْ يُهْلِكَ سُورَ بِنْتِ صِهْيَوْنَ. مَدَّ ٱلْمِطْمَارَ. لَمْ يَرْدُدْ يَدَهُ عَنِ ٱلْإِهْلَاكِ، وَجَعَلَ ٱلْمِتْرَسَةَ وَٱلسُّورَ يَنُوحَانِ. قَدْ حَزِنَا مَعًا. ٨ 8
Yahweh decided to destroy the city wall of the daughter of Zion. He has stretched out the measuring line and has not withheld his hand from destroying the wall. He has made the ramparts and wall to lament; together they wasted away.
تَاخَتْ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ أَبْوَابُهَا. أَهْلَكَ وَحَطَّمَ عَوَارِضَهَا. مَلِكُهَا وَرُؤَسَاؤُهَا بَيْنَ ٱلْأُمَمِ. لَا شَرِيعَةَ. أَنْبِيَاؤُهَا أَيْضًا لَا يَجِدُونَ رُؤْيَا مِنْ قِبَلِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٩ 9
Her gates have sunk into the ground; he has destroyed and broken the bars of her gate. Her king and her princes are among the nations, the law is no more and her prophets find no vision from Yahweh.
شُيُوخُ بِنْتِ صِهْيَوْنَ يَجْلِسُونَ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ سَاكِتِينَ. يَرْفَعُونَ ٱلتُّرَابَ عَلَى رُؤُوسِهِمْ. يَتَنَطَّقُونَ بِٱلْمُسُوحِ. تَحْنِي عَذَارَى أُورُشَلِيمَ رُؤُوسَهُنَّ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٠ 10
The elders of the daughter of Zion sit on the ground in silence. They have thrown dust on their heads and put on sackcloth. The virgins of Jerusalem have bowed their heads to the ground.
كَلَّتْ مِنَ ٱلدُّمُوعِ عَيْنَايَ. غَلَتْ أَحْشَائِي. ٱنْسَكَبَتْ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ كَبِدِي عَلَى سَحْقِ بِنْتِ شَعْبِي، لِأَجْلِ غَشَيَانِ ٱلْأَطْفَالِ وَٱلرُّضَّعِ فِي سَاحَاتِ ٱلْقَرْيَةِ. ١١ 11
My eyes have failed from their tears; my stomach churns; my inner parts are poured out to the ground because of the destruction of the daughter of my people, children and infants faint in the streets of the city.
يَقُولُونَ لِأُمَّهَاتِهِمْ: «أَيْنَ ٱلْحِنْطَةُ وَٱلْخَمْرُ؟» إِذْ يُغْشَى عَلَيْهِمْ كَجَرِيحٍ فِي سَاحَاتِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ، إِذْ تُسْكَبُ نَفْسُهُمْ فِي أَحْضَانِ أُمَّهَاتِهِمْ. ١٢ 12
They say to their mothers, “Where is grain and wine?” as they faint like a wounded man in the streets of the city, their lives are poured out on the bosom of their mothers.
بِمَاذَا أُنْذِرُكِ؟ بِمَاذَا أُحَذِّرُكِ؟ بِمَاذَا أُشَبِّهُكِ يَا ٱبْنَةَ أُورُشَلِيمَ؟ بِمَاذَا أُقَايِسُكِ فَأُعَزِّيكِ أَيَّتُهَا ٱلْعَذْرَاءُ بِنْتَ صِهْيَوْنَ؟ لِأَنَّ سَحْقَكِ عَظِيمٌ كَٱلْبَحْرِ. مَنْ يَشْفِيكِ؟ ١٣ 13
What can I say to you, daughter of Jerusalem? To what can I compare to you, that I may comfort you, virgin daughter of Zion? Your wound is as great as the sea. Who can heal you?
أَنْبِيَاؤُكِ رَأَوْا لَكِ كَذِبًا وَبَاطِلًا، وَلَمْ يُعْلِنُوا إِثْمَكِ لِيَرُدُّوا سَبْيَكِ، بَلْ رَأَوْا لَكِ وَحْيًا كَاذِبًا وَطَوَائِحَ. ١٤ 14
Your prophets have seen false and worthless visions for you. They have not exposed your iniquity to restore your fortunes, but for you they gave utterances that are false and misleading.
يُصَفِّقُ عَلَيْكِ بِٱلْأَيَادِي كُلُّ عَابِرِي ٱلطَّرِيقِ. يَصْفِرُونَ وَيَنْغُضُونَ رُؤُوسَهُمْ عَلَى بِنْتِ أُورُشَلِيمَ قَائِلِينَ: «أَهَذِهِ هِيَ ٱلْمَدِينَةُ ٱلَّتِي يَقُولُونَ إِنَّهَا كَمَالُ ٱلْجَمَالِ، بَهْجَةُ كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ؟» ١٥ 15
All those who pass along the road clap their hands at you. They hiss and shake their heads against the daughter of Jerusalem and say, “Is this the city that they called 'The Perfection of Beauty,' 'The Joy for All of Earth'?”
يَفْتَحُ عَلَيْكِ أَفْوَاهَهُمْ كُلُّ أَعْدَائِكِ. يَصْفِرُونَ وَيَحْرِقُونَ ٱلْأَسْنَانَ. يَقُولُونَ: «قَدْ أَهْلَكْنَاهَا. حَقًّا إِنَّ هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمَ ٱلَّذِي رَجَوْنَاهُ. قَدْ وَجَدْنَاهُ! قَدْ رَأَيْنَاهُ». ١٦ 16
All your enemies open their mouths against you. They sneer and grind their teeth in rage and say, “We have swallowed her up! This is the day we have waited for! We have lived to see it!”
فَعَلَ ٱلرَّبُّ مَا قَصَدَ. تَمَّمَ قَوْلَهُ ٱلَّذِي أَوْعَدَ بِهِ مُنْذُ أَيَّامِ ٱلْقِدَمِ. قَدْ هَدَمَ وَلَمْ يَشْفِقْ وَأَشْمَتَ بِكِ ٱلْعَدُوَّ. نَصَبَ قَرْنَ أَعْدَائِكِ. ١٧ 17
Yahweh has done what he planned to do. He has fulfilled his word. He has overthrown you without pity, for he has permitted the enemy to rejoice over you; he has lifted up the horn of your enemies.
صَرَخَ قَلْبُهُمْ إِلَى ٱلسَّيِّدِ. يَا سُورَ بِنْتِ صِهْيَوْنَ ٱسْكُبِي ٱلدَّمْعَ كَنَهْرٍ نَهَارًا وَلَيْلًا. لَا تُعْطِي ذَاتَكِ رَاحَةً. لَا تَكُفَّ حَدَقَةُ عَيْنِكِ. ١٨ 18
Their heart cried out to the Lord, walls of the daughter of Zion! Make your tears flow down like a river day and night. Give yourself no relief, your eyes no relief.
قُومِي ٱهْتِفِي فِي ٱللَّيْلِ فِي أَوَّلِ ٱلْهُزُعِ. ٱسْكُبِي كَمِيَاهٍ قَلْبَكِ قُبَالَةَ وَجْهِ ٱلسَّيِّدِ. ٱرْفَعِي إِلَيْهِ يَدَيْكِ لِأَجْلِ نَفْسِ أَطْفَالِكِ ٱلْمَغْشِيِّ عَلَيْهِمْ مِنَ ٱلْجُوعِ فِي رَأْسِ كُلِّ شَارِعٍ. ١٩ 19
Arise, cry out in the night, at the beginning of the night watches! Pour out your heart like water before the face of the Lord. Lift up your hands to him for the lives of your children who faint with hunger at the corner of every street.”
«اُنْظُرْ يَارَبُّ وَتَطَلَّعْ بِمَنْ فَعَلْتَ هَكَذَا؟ أَتَأْكُلُ ٱلنِّسَاءُ ثَمَرَهُنَّ، أَطْفَالَ ٱلْحَضَانَةِ؟ أَيُقْتَلُ فِي مَقْدِسِ ٱلسَّيِّدِ ٱلْكَاهِنُ وَٱلنَّبِيُّ؟ ٢٠ 20
See, Yahweh, and consider those you have dealt in this way. Should women eat the fruit of their wombs, the children whom they have cared for? Should priest and prophet be slaughtered in the sanctuary of the Lord?
ٱضْطَجَعَتْ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ فِي ٱلشَّوَارِعِ ٱلصِّبْيَانُ وَٱلشُّيُوخُ. عَذَارَايَ وَشُبَّانِي سَقَطُوا بِٱلسَّيْفِ. قَدْ قَتَلْتَ فِي يَوْمِ غَضَبِكَ. ذَبَحْتَ وَلَمْ تَشْفِقْ. ٢١ 21
Both the young and the old lie on the dust of the streets. My young women and my young men have fallen by the sword; you have slaughtered them without taking pity on them.
قَدْ دَعَوْتَ كَمَا فِي يَوْمِ مَوْسِمٍ مَخَاوِفِي حَوَالَيَّ، فَلَمْ يَكُنْ فِي يَوْمِ غَضَبِ ٱلرَّبِّ نَاجٍ وَلَا بَاقٍ. اَلَّذِينَ حَضَنْتُهُمْ وَرَبَّيْتُهُمْ أَفْنَاهُمْ عَدُوِّي». ٢٢ 22
You have summoned, as you would call the people to a feast day, my terrors on every side, on the day of the anger of Yahweh no one escaped or survived; those I cared for and raised, my enemy has destroyed.
