اَلْمَزَامِيرُ 104

بَارِكِي يَا نَفْسِي ٱلرَّبَّ. يَارَبُّ إِلَهِي، قَدْ عَظُمْتَ جِدًّا. مَجْدًا وَجَلَالًا لَبِسْتَ. ١ 1
I give praise to Yahweh with all my life, Yahweh my God, you are very magnificent; you are clothed with splendor and majesty.
ٱللَّابِسُ ٱلنُّورَ كَثَوْبٍ، ٱلْبَاسِطُ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ كَشُقَّةٍ. ٢ 2
You cover yourself with light as with a garment; you spread out the heavens like a tent curtain.
ٱلْمُسَقِّفُ عَلَالِيَهُ بِٱلْمِيَاهِ. ٱلْجَاعِلُ ٱلسَّحَابَ مَرْكَبَتَهُ، ٱلْمَاشِي عَلَى أَجْنِحَةِ ٱلرِّيحِ. ٣ 3
You lay the beams of your chambers on the clouds; you make the clouds your chariot; you walk on the wings of the wind.
ٱلصَّانِعُ مَلَائِكَتَهُ رِيَاحًا، وَخُدَّامَهُ نَارًا مُلْتَهِبَةً. ٤ 4
He makes the winds his messengers, flames of fire his servants.
ٱلْمُؤَسِّسُ ٱلْأَرْضَ عَلَى قَوَاعِدِهَا فَلَا تَتَزَعْزَعُ إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ وَٱلْأَبَدِ. ٥ 5
He laid the foundations of the earth, and it will never be moved.
كَسَوْتَهَا ٱلْغَمْرَ كَثَوْبٍ. فَوْقَ ٱلْجِبَالِ تَقِفُ ٱلْمِيَاهُ. ٦ 6
You covered the earth with water like a garment; the water covered the mountains.
مِنِ ٱنْتِهَارِكَ تَهْرُبُ، مِنْ صَوْتِ رَعْدِكَ تَفِرُّ. ٧ 7
Your rebuke made the waters recede; at the sound of your thunderous voice they fled.
تَصْعَدُ إِلَى ٱلْجِبَالِ. تَنْزِلُ إِلَى ٱلْبِقَاعِ، إِلَى ٱلْمَوْضِعِ ٱلَّذِي أَسَّسْتَهُ لَهَا. ٨ 8
The mountains rose, and the valleys spread out into the places that you had appointed for them.
وَضَعْتَ لَهَا تَخْمًا لَا تَتَعَدَّاهُ. لَا تَرْجِعُ لِتُغَطِّيَ ٱلْأَرْضَ. ٩ 9
You have set a boundary for them that they will not cross; they will not cover the earth again.
اَلْمُفَجِّرُ عُيُونًا فِي ٱلْأَوْدِيَةِ. بَيْنَ ٱلْجِبَالِ تَجْرِي. ١٠ 10
He made springs flow into the valleys; the streams flow between the mountains.
تَسْقِي كُلَّ حَيَوَانِ ٱلْبَرِّ. تَكْسِرُ ٱلْفِرَاءُ ظَمْأَهَا. ١١ 11
They supply water for all the animals of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst.
فَوْقَهَا طُيُورُ ٱلسَّمَاءِ تَسْكُنُ. مِنْ بَيْنِ ٱلْأَغْصَانِ تُسَمِّعُ صَوْتًا. ١٢ 12
By the riverbanks the birds build their nests; they sing among the branches.
ٱلسَّاقِي ٱلْجِبَالَ مِنْ عَلَالِيهِ. مِنْ ثَمَرِ أَعْمَالِكَ تَشْبَعُ ٱلْأَرْضُ. ١٣ 13
He waters the mountains from his water chambers in the sky. The earth is filled with the fruit of his labor.
ٱلْمُنْبِتُ عُشْبًا لِلْبَهَائِمِ، وَخُضْرَةً لِخِدْمَةِ ٱلْإِنْسَانِ، لِإِخْرَاجِ خُبْزٍ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ، ١٤ 14
He makes the grass grow for the cattle and plants for man to cultivate so that man may produce food from the earth.
وَخَمْرٍ تُفَرِّحُ قَلْبَ ٱلْإِنْسَانِ، لِإِلْمَاعِ وَجْهِهِ أَكْثَرَ مِنَ ٱلزَّيْتِ، وَخُبْزٍ يُسْنِدُ قَلْبَ ٱلْإِنْسَانِ. ١٥ 15
He makes wine to make man happy, oil to make his face shine, and food to sustain his life.
تَشْبَعُ أَشْجَارُ ٱلرَّبِّ، أَرْزُ لُبْنَانَ ٱلَّذِي نَصَبَهُ. ١٦ 16
The trees of Yahweh get plenty of rain; the cedars of Lebanon which he planted.
حَيْثُ تُعَشِّشُ هُنَاكَ ٱلْعَصَافِيرُ. أَمَّا ٱللَّقْلَقُ فَٱلسَّرْوُ بَيْتُهُ. ١٧ 17
There the birds make their nests. The stork makes the cypress tree her home.
ٱلْجِبَالُ ٱلْعَالِيَةُ لِلْوُعُولِ، ٱلصُّخُورُ مَلْجَأٌ لِلْوِبَارِ. ١٨ 18
The wild goats live on the high mountains; the mountain heights are a refuge for the hyraxes.
صَنَعَ ٱلْقَمَرَ لِلْمَوَاقِيتِ. ٱلشَّمْسُ تَعْرِفُ مَغْرِبَهَا. ١٩ 19
He appointed the moon to mark the seasons; the sun knows its time for setting.
تَجْعَلُ ظُلْمَةً فَيَصِيرُ لَيْلٌ. فِيهِ يَدِبُّ كُلُّ حَيَوَانِ ٱلْوَعْرِ. ٢٠ 20
You make the darkness of the night when all the beasts of the forest come out.
ٱلْأَشْبَالُ تُزَمْجِرُ لِتَخْطَفَ، وَلِتَلْتَمِسَ مِنَ ٱللهِ طَعَامَهَا. ٢١ 21
The young lions roar for their prey and seek their food from God.
تُشْرِقُ ٱلشَّمْسُ فَتَجْتَمِعُ، وَفِي مَآوِيهَا تَرْبِضُ. ٢٢ 22
When the sun rises, they retreat and sleep in their dens.
ٱلْإِنْسَانُ يَخْرُجُ إِلَى عَمَلِهِ، وَإِلَى شُغْلِهِ إِلَى ٱلْمَسَاءِ. ٢٣ 23
Meanwhile, people go out to their work and labor away until the evening.
مَا أَعْظَمَ أَعْمَالَكَ يَارَبُّ! كُلَّهَا بِحِكْمَةٍ صَنَعْتَ. مَلْآنةٌ ٱلْأَرْضُ مِنْ غِنَاكَ. ٢٤ 24
Yahweh, how many and varied are your works! With wisdom you made them all; the earth overflows with your works.
هَذَا ٱلْبَحْرُ ٱلْكَبِيرُ ٱلْوَاسِعُ ٱلْأَطْرَافِ. هُنَاكَ دَبَّابَاتٌ بِلَا عَدَدٍ. صِغَارُ حَيَوَانٍ مَعَ كِبَارٍ. ٢٥ 25
Over there is the sea, deep and wide, teeming with innumerable creatures, both small and great.
هُنَاكَ تَجْرِي ٱلسُّفُنُ. لِوِيَاثَانُ هَذَا خَلَقْتَهُ لِيَلْعَبَ فِيهِ. ٢٦ 26
The ships travel there, and Leviathan is also there, which you formed to play in the sea.
كُلُّهَا إِيَّاكَ تَتَرَجَّى لِتَرْزُقَهَا قُوتَهَا فِي حِينِهِ. ٢٧ 27
All these look to you to give them their food on time.
تُعْطِيهَا فَتَلْتَقِطُ. تَفْتَحُ يَدَكَ فَتَشْبَعُ خَيْرًا. ٢٨ 28
When you give to them, they gather; when you open your hand, they are satisfied.
تَحْجُبُ وَجْهَكَ فَتَرْتَاعُ. تَنْزِعُ أَرْوَاحَهَا فَتَمُوتُ، وَإِلَى تُرَابِهَا تَعُودُ. ٢٩ 29
When you hide your face, they are troubled; if you take away their breath, they die and return to dust.
تُرْسِلُ رُوحَكَ فَتُخْلَقُ، وَتُجَدِّدُ وَجْهَ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٣٠ 30
When you send out your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the countryside.
يَكُونُ مَجْدُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ. يَفْرَحُ ٱلرَّبُّ بِأَعْمَالِهِ. ٣١ 31
May the glory of Yahweh last forever; may Yahweh enjoy his creation.
ٱلنَّاظِرُ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ فَتَرْتَعِدُ. يَمَسُّ ٱلْجِبَالَ فَتُدَخِّنُ. ٣٢ 32
He looks down on the earth, and it shakes; he touches the mountains, and they smoke.
أُغَنِّي لِلرَّبِّ فِي حَيَاتِي. أُرَنِّمُ لِإِلَهِي مَا دُمْتُ مَوْجُودًا. ٣٣ 33
I will sing to Yahweh all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
فَيَلَذُّ لَهُ نَشِيدِي، وَأَنَا أَفْرَحُ بِٱلرَّبِّ. ٣٤ 34
May my thoughts be sweet to him; I will rejoice in Yahweh.
لِتُبَدِ ٱلْخُطَاةُ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ وَٱلْأَشْرَارُ لَا يَكُونُوا بَعْدُ. بَارِكِي يَا نَفْسِي ٱلرَّبَّ. هَلِّلُويَا. ٣٥ 35
May sinners vanish from the earth, and let the wicked be no more. I give praise to Yahweh with all my life. Praise Yahweh.
