اَلْمَزَامِيرُ 12

لِإِمَامِ ٱلْمُغَنِّينَ عَلَى «ٱلْقَرَارِ». مَزْمُورٌ لِدَاوُدَ خَلِّصْ يَارَبُّ، لِأَنَّهُ قَدِ ٱنْقَرَضَ ٱلتَّقِيُّ، لِأَنَّهُ قَدِ ٱنْقَطَعَ ٱلْأُمَنَاءُ مِنْ بَنِي ٱلْبَشَرِ. ١ 1
For the chief musician; set to the Sheminith. A psalm of David. Help, Yahweh, for the godly have disappeared; the faithful have vanished.
يَتَكَلَّمُونَ بِٱلْكَذِبِ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ مَعَ صَاحِبِهِ، بِشِفَاهٍ مَلِقَةٍ، بِقَلْبٍ فَقَلْبٍ يَتَكَلَّمُونَ. ٢ 2
Everyone says empty words to his neighbor; everyone speaks with flattering lips and a double heart.
يَقْطَعُ ٱلرَّبُّ جَمِيعَ ٱلشِّفَاهِ ٱلْمَلِقَةِ وَٱللِّسَانَ ٱلْمُتَكَلِّمَ بِٱلْعَظَائِمِ، ٣ 3
Yahweh, cut off all flattering lips, every tongue declaring great things.
ٱلَّذِينَ قَالُوا: «بِأَلْسِنَتِنَا نَتَجَبَّرُ. شِفَاهُنَا مَعَنَا. مَنْ هُوَ سَيِّدٌ عَلَيْنَا؟». ٤ 4
These are those who have said, “With our tongues will we prevail. When our lips speak, who can be master over us?”
«مِنِ ٱغْتِصَابِ ٱلْمَسَاكِينِ، مِنْ صَرْخَةِ ٱلْبَائِسِينَ، ٱلْآنَ أَقُومُ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ، أَجْعَلُ فِي وُسْعٍ ٱلَّذِي يُنْفَثُ فِيهِ». ٥ 5
“Because of violence against the poor, because of the groans of the needy, I will arise,” says Yahweh. “I will provide the safety for which they long.”
كَلَامُ ٱلرَّبِّ كَلَامٌ نَقِيٌّ، كَفِضَّةٍ مُصَفَّاةٍ فِي بُوطَةٍ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ، مَمْحُوصَةٍ سَبْعَ مَرَّاتٍ. ٦ 6
The words of Yahweh are pure words, like silver purified in a furnace on the earth, refined seven times.
أَنْتَ يَارَبُّ تَحْفَظُهُمْ. تَحْرُسُهُمْ مِنْ هَذَا ٱلْجِيلِ إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ. ٧ 7
You are Yahweh! You keep them. You preserve the godly people from this wicked generation and forever.
ٱلْأَشْرَارُ يَتَمَشَّوْنَ مِنْ كُلِّ نَاحِيَةٍ عِنْدَ ٱرْتِفَاعِ ٱلْأَرْذَالِ بَيْنَ ٱلنَّاسِ. ٨ 8
The wicked walk on every side when evil is exalted among the children of mankind.
