وَبَاقِي ٱلشَّعْبِ وَٱلْكَهَنَةِ وَٱللَّاَوِيِّينَ وَٱلْبَوَّابِينَ وَٱلْمُغَنِّينَ وَٱلنَّثِينِيمَ، وَكُلِّ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱنْفَصَلُوا مِنْ شُعُوبِ ٱلْأَرَاضِي إِلَى شَرِيعَةِ ٱللهِ، وَنِسَائِهِمْ وَبَنِيهِمْ وَبَنَاتِهِمْ، كُلِّ أَصْحَابِ ٱلْمَعْرِفَةِ وَٱلْفَهْمِ، ٢٨ 28
As for the rest of the people, who were priests, Levites, gatekeepers, singers, temple servants, and all who had separated themselves from the people of the neighboring lands and pledged themselves to the law of God, including their wives, their sons and their daughters, all who have knowledge and understanding,
لَصِقُوا بِإِخْوَتِهِمْ وَعُظَمَائِهِمْ وَدَخَلُوا فِي قَسَمٍ وَحِلْفٍ أَنْ يَسِيرُوا فِي شَرِيعَةِ ٱللهِ ٱلَّتِي أُعْطِيَتْ عَنْ يَدِ مُوسَى عَبْدِ ٱللهِ، وَأَنْ يَحْفَظُوا وَيَعْمَلُوا جَمِيعَ وَصَايَا ٱلرَّبِّ سَيِّدِنَا، وَأَحْكَامِهِ وَفَرَائِضِهِ، ٢٩ 29
they joined together with their brothers, their nobles, and bound themselves with both a curse and an oath to walk in God's law, which was given by Moses the servant of God, and to observe and obey all the commandments of Yahweh our Lord and his decrees and his statutes.
وَأَنْ لَا نُعْطِيَ بَنَاتِنَا لِشُعُوبِ ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَلَا نَأْخُذَ بَنَاتِهِمْ لِبَنِينَا. ٣٠ 30
We promised that we would not give our daughters to the people of the land or take their daughters for our sons.
وَشُعُوبُ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّذِينَ يَأْتُونَ بِٱلْبَضَائِعِ وَكُلِّ طَعَامِ يَوْمِ ٱلسَّبْتِ لِلْبَيْعِ، لَا نَأْخُذُ مِنْهُمْ فِي سَبْتٍ وَلَا فِي يَوْمٍ مُقَدَّسٍ، وَأَنْ نَتْرُكَ ٱلسَّنَةَ ٱلسَّابِعَةَ، وَٱلْمُطَالَبَةَ بِكُلِّ دَيْنٍ. ٣١ 31
We also promised that if the people of the land bring goods or any grain to sell on the Sabbath day, we would not buy from them on the Sabbath or on any holy day. Every seventh year we will let our fields rest, and we will cancel all debts.
وَأَقَمْنَا عَلَى أَنْفُسِنَا فَرَائِضَ: أَنْ نَجْعَلَ عَلَى أَنْفُسِنَا ثُلْثَ شَاقِلٍ كُلَّ سَنَةٍ لِخِدْمَةِ بَيْتِ إِلَهِنَا، ٣٢ 32
We accepted the commands to give a third of a shekel each year for the service of the house of our God,
لِخُبْزِ ٱلْوُجُوهِ وَٱلتَّقْدِمَةِ ٱلدَّائِمَةِ وَٱلْمُحْرَقَةِ ٱلدَّائِمَةِ وَٱلسُّبُوتِ وَٱلْأَهِلَّةِ وَٱلْمَوَاسِمِ وَٱلْأَقْدَاسِ وَذَبَائِحِ ٱلْخَطِيَّةِ، لِلتَّكْفِيرِ عَنْ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَلِكُلِّ عَمَلِ بَيْتِ إِلَهِنَا. ٣٣ 33
to provide for the bread of the presence, and for the regular grain offering, the burnt offerings on the Sabbaths, the new moon festivals and appointed feasts, and for the holy offerings, and for the sin offerings to make atonement for Israel, as well as for all the work of the house of our God.
وَأَلْقَيْنَا قُرَعًا عَلَى قُرْبَانِ ٱلْحَطَبِ بَيْنَ ٱلْكَهَنَةِ وَٱللَّاَوِيِّينَ وَٱلشَّعْبِ، لِإِدْخَالِهِ إِلَى بَيْتِ إِلَهِنَا حَسَبَ بُيُوتِ آبَائِنَا، فِي أَوْقَاتٍ مُعَيَّنَةٍ سَنَةً فَسَنَةً، لِأَجْلِ إِحْرَاقِهِ عَلَى مَذْبَحِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِنَا كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ فِي ٱلشَّرِيعَةِ، ٣٤ 34
The priests, the Levites, and the people cast lots for the wood offering. The lots would select which of our families would bring wood into the house of our God at the appointed times each year, to be burned on the altar of Yahweh our God, as it is written in the law.
وَلِإِدْخَالِ بَاكُورَاتِ أَرْضِنَا، وَبَاكُورَاتِ ثَمَرِ كُلِّ شَجَرَةٍ سَنَةً فَسَنَةً إِلَى بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ، ٣٥ 35
We promised to bring to the house of Yahweh the firstfruits grown from our soil, and the firstfruits of every tree each year.
وَأَبْكَارِ بَنِينَا وَبَهَائِمِنَا، كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ فِي ٱلشَّرِيعَةِ، وَأَبْكَارِ بَقَرِنَا وَغَنَمِنَا لِإِحْضَارِهَا إِلَى بَيْتِ إِلَهِنَا، إِلَى ٱلْكَهَنَةِ ٱلْخَادِمِينَ فِي بَيْتِ إِلَهِنَا. ٣٦ 36
As it is written in the law, we promised to bring to the house of God and to the priests who serve there, the firstborn of our sons and of our herds and flocks.
وَأَنْ نَأْتِيَ بِأَوَائِلِ عَجِينِنَا وَرَفَائِعِنَا وَأَثْمَارِ كُلِّ شَجَرَةٍ مِنَ ٱلْخَمْرِ وَٱلزَّيْتِ إِلَى ٱلْكَهَنَةِ، إِلَى مَخَادِعِ بَيْتِ إِلَهِنَا، وَبِعُشْرِ أَرْضِنَا إِلَى ٱللَّاَوِيِّينَ، وَٱللَّاَوِيُّونَ هُمُ ٱلَّذِينَ يُعَشِّرُونَ فِي جَمِيعِ مُدُنِ فَلَاحَتِنَا. ٣٧ 37
We will bring the first of our dough and our grain offerings, and the fruit of every tree, and the new wine and the oil we will bring to the priests, to the storerooms of the house of our God. We will bring to the Levites the tithes from our soil because the Levites collect the tithes in all the towns where we work.
وَيَكُونُ ٱلْكَاهِنُ ٱبْنُ هَارُونَ مَعَ ٱللَّاَوِيِّينَ حِينَ يُعَشِّرُ ٱللَّاَوِيُّونَ، وَيُصْعِدُ ٱللَّاوِيُّونَ عُشْرَ ٱلْأَعْشَارِ إِلَى بَيْتِ إِلَهِنَا، إِلَى ٱلْمَخَادِعِ، إِلَى بَيْتِ ٱلْخَزِينَةِ. ٣٨ 38
A priest, a descendant of Aaron, must be with the Levites when they receive the tithes. The Levites must bring a tenth of the tithes to the house of our God to the storerooms of the treasury.
لِأَنَّ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ وَبَنِي لَاوِي يَأْتُونَ بِرَفِيعَةِ ٱلْقَمْحِ وَٱلْخَمْرِ وَٱلزَّيْتِ إِلَى ٱلْمَخَادِعِ، وَهُنَاكَ آنِيَةُ ٱلْقُدْسِ وَٱلْكَهَنَةُ ٱلْخَادِمُونَ وَٱلْبَوَّابُونَ وَٱلْمُغَنُّونَ، وَلَا نَتْرُكُ بَيْتَ إِلَهِنَا. ٣٩ 39
For the people of Israel and the descendants of Levi are to bring the contributions of grain, new wine, and oil to the storerooms where the articles of the sanctuary are kept and where the priests who are serving, and the gatekeepers, and the singers stay. We will not neglect the house of our God.
