اَلْعَدَد 32

وَأَمَّا بَنُو رَأُوبَيْنَ وَبَنُو جَادَ فَكَانَ لَهُمْ مَوَاشٍ كَثِيرَةٌ وَافِرَةٌ جِدًّا. فَلَمَّا رَأَوْا أَرْضَ يَعْزِيرَ وَأَرْضَ جِلْعَادَ، وَإِذَا ٱلْمَكَانُ مَكَانُ مَوَاشٍ، ١ 1
Now the descendants of Reuben and of Gad had large numbers of livestock. When they saw the land of Jazer and Gilead, the land was a wonderful place for livestock.
أَتَى بَنُو جَادَ وَبَنُو رَأُوبَيْنَ وَكَلَّمُوا مُوسَى وَأَلِعَازَارَ ٱلْكَاهِنَ وَرُؤَسَاءَ ٱلْجَمَاعَةِ قَائِلِينَ: ٢ 2
So the descendants of Gad and Reuben came and spoke to Moses, to Eleazar the priest, and to the leaders of the community. They said,
«عَطَارُوتُ وَدِيبُونُ وَيَعْزِيرُ وَنِمْرَةُ وَحَشْبُونُ وَأَلِعَالَةُ وَشَبَامُ وَنَبُو وَبَعُونُ، ٣ 3
“This is a list of places we have surveyed: Ataroth, Dibon, Jazer, Nimrah, Heshbon, Elealeh, Sebam, Nebo, and Beon.
ٱلْأَرْضُ ٱلَّتِي ضَرَبَهَا ٱلرَّبُّ قُدَّامَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، هِيَ أَرْضُ مَوَاشٍ، وَلِعَبِيدِكَ مَوَاشٍ». ٤ 4
These are the lands that Yahweh attacked before the community of Israel, and they are good places for livestock. We, your servants, have a lot of livestock.”
ثُمَّ قَالُوا: «إِنْ وَجَدْنَا نِعْمَةً فِي عَيْنَيْكَ فَلْتُعْطَ هَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضُ لِعَبِيدِكَ مُلْكًا، وَلَا تُعَبِّرْنَا ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ». ٥ 5
They said, “If we have found favor in your eyes, let this land be given to us, your servants, as a possession. Do not make us cross over the Jordan.”
فَقَالَ مُوسَى لِبَنِي جَادٍ وَبَنِي رَأُوبَيْنَ: «هَلْ يَنْطَلِقُ إِخْوَتُكُمْ إِلَى ٱلْحَرْبِ، وَأَنْتُمْ تَقْعُدُونَ هَهُنَا؟ ٦ 6
Moses replied to the descendants of Gad and Reuben, “Should your brothers go to war while you settle down here?
فَلِمَاذَا تَصُدُّونَ قُلُوبَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ عَنِ ٱلْعُبُورِ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَاهُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ؟ ٧ 7
Why discourage the hearts of the people of Israel from going over into the land that Yahweh has given them?
هَكَذَا فَعَلَ آبَاؤُكُمْ حِينَ أَرْسَلْتُهُمْ مِنْ قَادَشَ بَرْنِيعَ لِيَنْظُرُوا ٱلْأَرْضَ. ٨ 8
Your fathers did the same thing when I sent them from Kadesh Barnea to examine the land.
صَعِدُوا إِلَى وَادِي أَشْكُولَ وَنَظَرُوا ٱلْأَرْضَ وَصَدُّوا قُلُوبَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ عَنْ دُخُولِ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَاهُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ. ٩ 9
They went up to the Valley of Eshkol. They saw the land and then discouraged the hearts of the people of Israel so that they refused to enter the land that Yahweh had given them.
فَحَمِيَ غَضَبُ ٱلرَّبِّ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ وَأَقْسَمَ قَائِلًا: ١٠ 10
Yahweh's anger was kindled on that day. He took an oath and said,
لَنْ يَرَى ٱلنَّاسُ ٱلَّذِينَ صَعِدُوا مِنْ مِصْرَ، مِنِ ٱبْنِ عِشْرِينَ سَنَةً فَصَاعِدًا، ٱلْأَرْضَ ٱلَّتِي أَقْسَمْتُ لِإِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْحَاقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ، لِأَنَّهُمْ لَمْ يَتَّبِعُونِي تَمَامًا، ١١ 11
'Surely none of the men who came up out of Egypt, from twenty years old and up, will see the land about which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, because they have not completely followed me, except for
مَا عَدَا كَالِبَ بْنَ يَفُنَّةَ ٱلْقِنِزِّيَّ وَيَشُوعَ بْنَ نُونَ، لِأَنَّهُمَا ٱتَّبَعَا ٱلرَّبَّ تَمَامًا. ١٢ 12
Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite, and Joshua son of Nun. Only Caleb and Joshua have completely followed me.'
فَحَمِيَ غَضَبُ ٱلرَّبِّ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ وَأَتَاهَهُمْ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ أَرْبَعِينَ سَنَةً، حَتَّى فَنِيَ كُلُّ ٱلْجِيلِ ٱلَّذِي فَعَلَ ٱلشَّرَّ فِي عَيْنَيِ ٱلرَّبِّ. ١٣ 13
So Yahweh's anger was kindled against Israel. He made them wander around in the wilderness for forty years until all the generation who had done evil in his sight was destroyed.
فَهُوَذَا أَنْتُمْ قَدْ قُمْتُمْ عِوَضًا عَنْ آبَائِكُمْ، تَرْبِيَةَ أُنَاسٍ خُطَاةٍ، لِكَيْ تَزِيدُوا أَيْضًا حُمُوَّ غَضَبِ ٱلرَّبِّ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ. ١٤ 14
Look, you have risen up in your fathers' place, like just more sinful men, to add to Yahweh's burning anger toward Israel.
إِذَا ٱرْتَدَدْتُمْ مِنْ وَرَائِهِ، يَعُودُ يَتْرُكُهُ أَيْضًا فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ، فَتُهْلِكُونَ كُلَّ هَذَا ٱلشَّعْبِ». ١٥ 15
If you turn away from following him, he will again leave Israel in the wilderness and you will have destroyed all this people.”
فَٱقْتَرَبُوا إِلَيْهِ وَقَالُوا: «نَبْنِي صِيَرَ غَنَمٍ لِمَوَاشِينَا هَهُنَا وَمُدُنًا لِأَطْفَالِنَا. ١٦ 16
So they came near Moses and said, “Allow us to build fences here for our cattle and cities for our families.
وَأَمَّا نَحْنُ فَنَتَجَرَّدُ مُسْرِعِينَ قُدَّامَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ حَتَّى نَأْتِيَ بِهِمْ إِلَى مَكَانِهِمْ، وَيَلْبَثُ أَطْفَالُنَا فِي مُدُنٍ مُحَصَّنَةٍ مِنْ وَجْهِ سُكَّانِ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ١٧ 17
However, we ourselves will be ready and armed to go with Israel's army until we have led them into their place. But our families will live in the fortified cities because of the other people who still live in this land.
لَا نَرْجِعُ إِلَى بُيُوتِنَا حَتَّى يَقْتَسِمَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ نَصِيبَهُ. ١٨ 18
We will not return to our houses until every one of the people of Israel has obtained his inheritance.
إِنَّنَا لَا نَمْلِكُ مَعَهُمْ فِي عَبْرِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ وَمَا وَرَاءَهُ، لِأَنَّ نَصِيبَنَا قَدْ حَصَلَ لَنَا فِي عَبْرِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ إِلَى ٱلشَّرْقِ». ١٩ 19
We will not inherit the land with them on the other side of the Jordan, because our inheritance is here on the east side of the Jordan.”
فَقَالَ لَهُمْ مُوسَى: «إِنْ فَعَلْتُمْ هَذَا ٱلْأَمْرَ، إِنْ تَجَرَّدْتُمْ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ لِلْحَرْبِ، ٢٠ 20
So Moses replied to them, “If you do what you say, if you arm yourselves to go before Yahweh to war,
وَعَبَرَ ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ كُلُّ مُتَجَرِّدٍ مِنْكُمْ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ حَتَّى طَرَدَ أَعْدَاءَهُ مِنْ أَمَامِهِ، ٢١ 21
then every one of your armed men must cross over the Jordan before Yahweh, until he has driven out his enemies from before him
وَأُخْضِعَتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَبَعْدَ ذَلِكَ رَجَعْتُمْ، فَتَكُونُونَ أَبْرِيَاءَ مِنْ نَحْوِ ٱلرَّبِّ وَمِنْ نَحْوِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَتَكُونُ هَذِهِ ٱلْأَرْضُ مُلْكًا لَكُمْ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ. ٢٢ 22
and the land is subdued before him. Then afterward you may return. You will be guiltless toward Yahweh and toward Israel. This land will be your possession before Yahweh.
وَلَكِنْ إِنْ لَمْ تَفْعَلُوا هَكَذَا، فَإِنَّكُمْ تُخْطِئُونَ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ، وَتَعْلَمُونَ خَطِيَّتَكُمُ ٱلَّتِي تُصِيبُكُمْ. ٢٣ 23
But if you do not do so, look, you will have sinned against Yahweh. Be sure that your sin will find you out.
اِبْنُوا لِأَنْفُسِكُمْ مُدُنًا لِأَطْفَالِكُمْ وَصِيَرًا لِغَنَمِكُمْ. وَمَا خَرَجَ مِنْ أَفْوَاهِكُمُ ٱفْعَلُوا». ٢٤ 24
Build cities for your families and pens for your sheep; then do what you have said.”
فَكَلَّمَ بَنُو جَادَ وَبَنُو رَأُوبَيْنَ مُوسَى قَائِلِينَ: «عَبِيدُكَ يَفْعَلُونَ كَمَا أَمَرَ سَيِّدِي. ٢٥ 25
The descendants of Gad and Reuben spoke to Moses and said, “Your servants will do as you, our master, commands.
أَطْفَالُنَا وَنِسَاؤُنَا وَمَوَاشِينَا وَكُلُّ بَهَائِمِنَا تَكُونُ هُنَاكَ فِي مُدُنِ جِلْعَادَ. ٢٦ 26
Our little ones, our wives, our flocks, and all our livestock will stay there in the cities of Gilead.
وَعَبِيدُكَ يَعْبُرُونَ، كُلُّ مُتَجَرِّدٍ لِلْجُنْدِ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ لِلْحَرْبِ كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ سَيِّدِي». ٢٧ 27
However, we, your servants, will cross over before Yahweh to battle, every man who is armed for war, as you, our master, say.”
فَأَوْصَى بِهِمْ مُوسَى أَلِعَازَارَ ٱلْكَاهِنَ وَيَشُوعَ بْنَ نُونَ وَرُؤُوسَ آبَاءِ ٱلْأَسْبَاطِ مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٢٨ 28
So Moses gave instructions concerning them to Eleazar the priest, to Joshua son of Nun, and to the leaders of the ancestor's clans in the tribes of the people of Israel.
وَقَالَ لَهُمْ مُوسَى: «إِنْ عَبَرَ ٱلْأُرْدُنَّ مَعَكُمْ بَنُو جَادَ وَبَنُو رَأُوبَيْنَ، كُلُّ مُتَجَرِّدٍ لِلْحَرْبِ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ، فَمَتَى أُخْضِعَتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ أَمَامَكُمْ، تُعْطُونَهُمْ أَرْضَ جِلْعَادَ مُلْكًا. ٢٩ 29
Moses said to them, “If the descendants of Gad and Reuben cross over the Jordan with you, every man who is armed to battle before Yahweh, and if the land is subdued before you, then you will give them the land of Gilead as a possession.
وَلَكِنْ إِنْ لَمْ يَعْبُرُوا مُتَجَرِّدِينَ مَعَكُمْ، يَتَمَلَّكُوا فِي وَسَطِكُمْ فِي أَرْضِ كَنْعَانَ». ٣٠ 30
But if they do not cross over with you armed, then they will acquire their possessions among you in the land of Canaan.”
فَأَجَابَ بَنُو جَادٍ وَبَنُو رَأُوبَيْنَ قَائِلِينَ: «ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ ٱلرَّبُّ عَنْ عَبِيدِكَ كَذَلِكَ نَفْعَلُ. ٣١ 31
So the descendants of Gad and Reuben answered and said, “As Yahweh has said to us, your servants, this is what we will do.
نَحْنُ نَعْبُرُ مُتَجَرِّدِينَ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى أَرْضِ كَنْعَانَ، وَلَكِنْ نُعْطَى مُلْكَ نَصِيبِنَا فِي عَبْرِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ». ٣٢ 32
We will cross over armed before Yahweh into the land of Canaan, but our possessed inheritance will remain with us on this side of the Jordan.”
فَأَعْطَى مُوسَى لَهُمْ، لِبَنِي جَادٍ وَبَنِي رَأُوبَيْنَ وَنِصْفِ سِبْطِ مَنَسَّى بْنِ يُوسُفَ، مَمْلَكَةَ سِيحُونَ مَلِكِ ٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ وَمَمْلَكَةَ عُوجٍ مَلِكِ بَاشَانَ، ٱلْأَرْضَ مَعَ مُدُنِهَا بِتُخُومِ مُدُنِ ٱلْأَرْضِ حَوَالَيْهَا. ٣٣ 33
So to the descendants of Gad and Reuben, and also to the half tribe of Manasseh son of Joseph, Moses gave the kingdom of Sihon, king of the Amorites, and of Og, king of Bashan. He gave to them the land, and distributed to them all its cities with their borders, the cities of the land around them.
فَبَنَى بَنُو جَادَ: دِيبُونَ وَعَطَارُوتَ وَعَرُوعِيرَ ٣٤ 34
The descendants of Gad rebuilt Dibon, Ataroth, Aroer,
وَعَطْرُوتَ شُوفَانَ وَيَعْزِيرَ وَيُجْبَهَةَ ٣٥ 35
Atroth Shophan, Jazer, Jogbehah,
وَبَيْتَ نِمْرَةَ وَبَيْتَ هَارَانَ مُدُنًا مُحَصَّنَةً مَعَ صِيَرِ غَنَمٍ. ٣٦ 36
Beth Nimrah, and Beth Haran as fortified cities with pens for sheep.
وَبَنَى بَنُو رَأُوبَيْنَ: حَشْبُونَ وَأَلِعَالَةَ وَقَرْيَتَايِمَ ٣٧ 37
The descendants of Reuben rebuilt Heshbon, Elealeh, Kiriathaim,
وَنَبُوَ وَبَعْلَ مَعُونَ، مُغَيَّرَتَيِ ٱلِٱسْمِ، وَسَبْمَةَ، وَدَعَوْا بِأَسْمَاءٍ أَسْمَاءَ ٱلْمُدُنِ ٱلَّتِي بَنَوْا. ٣٨ 38
Nebo, Baal Meon—their names were later changed, and Sibmah. They gave other names to the cities that they rebuilt.
وَذَهَبَ بَنُو مَاكِيرَ بْنِ مَنَسَّى إِلَى جِلْعَادَ وَأَخَذُوهَا وَطَرَدُوا ٱلْأَمُورِيِّينَ ٱلَّذِينَ فِيهَا. ٣٩ 39
The descendants of Machir son of Manasseh went to Gilead and took it away from the Amorites who were in it.
فَأَعْطَى مُوسَى جِلْعَادَ لِمَاكِيرَ بْنِ مَنَسَّى فَسَكَنَ فِيهَا. ٤٠ 40
Then Moses gave Gilead to Machir son of Manasseh, and his people settled there.
وَذَهَبَ يَائِيرُ ٱبْنُ مَنَسَّى وَأَخَذَ مَزَارِعَهَا وَدَعَاهُنَّ: حَوُّوثَ يَائِيرَ. ٤١ 41
Jair son of Manasseh went and captured its towns and called them Havvoth Jair.
وَذَهَبَ نُوبَحُ وَأَخَذَ قَنَاةَ وَقُرَاهَا وَدَعَاهَا نُوبَحَ بِٱسْمِهِ. ٤٢ 42
Nobah went and captured Kenath and its villages, and he called it Nobah, after his own name.
