اَلْمَزَامِيرُ 42

لِإِمَامِ ٱلْمُغَنِّينَ. قَصِيدَةٌ لِبَنِي قُورَحَ كَمَا يَشْتَاقُ ٱلْإِيَّلُ إِلَى جَدَاوِلِ ٱلْمِيَاهِ، هَكَذَا تَشْتَاقُ نَفْسِي إِلَيْكَ يَا ٱللهُ. ١ 1
For the chief musician. A maschil of the sons of Korah. As the deer pants after streams of water, so I thirst for you, God.
عَطِشَتْ نَفْسِي إِلَى ٱللهِ، إِلَى ٱلْإِلَهِ ٱلْحَيِّ. مَتَى أَجِيءُ وَأَتَرَاءَى قُدَّامَ ٱللهِ؟ ٢ 2
I thirst for God, for the living God, when will I come and appear before God?
صَارَتْ لِي دُمُوعِي خُبْزًا نَهَارًا وَلَيْلًا إِذْ قِيلَ لِي كُلَّ يَوْمٍ: «أَيْنَ إِلَهُكَ؟». ٣ 3
My tears have been my food day and night, while my enemies are always saying to me, “Where is your God?”
هَذِهِ أَذْكُرُهَا فَأَسْكُبُ نَفْسِي عَلَيَّ: لِأَنِّي كُنْتُ أَمُرُّ مَعَ ٱلْجُمَّاعِ، أَتَدَرَّجُ مَعَهُمْ إِلَى بَيْتِ ٱللهِ بِصَوْتِ تَرَنُّمٍ وَحَمْدٍ، جُمْهُورٌ مُعَيِّدٌ. ٤ 4
These things I call to mind as I pour out my soul: how I went with the throng and led them to the house of God with the voice of joy and praise, a multitude celebrating a festival.
لِمَاذَا أَنْتِ مُنْحَنِيَةٌ يَا نَفْسِي؟ وَلِمَاذَا تَئِنِّينَ فِيَّ؟ ٱرْتَجِي ٱللهَ، لِأَنِّي بَعْدُ أَحْمَدُهُ، لِأَجْلِ خَلَاصِ وَجْهِهِ. ٥ 5
Why are you bowed down, my soul? Why are you upset within me? Hope in God, for again I will praise him who is my salvation.
يَا إِلَهِي، نَفْسِي مُنْحَنِيَةٌ فِيَّ، لِذَلِكَ أَذْكُرُكَ مِنْ أَرْضِ ٱلْأُرْدُنِّ وَجِبَالِ حَرْمُونَ، مِنْ جَبَلِ مِصْعَرَ. ٦ 6
My God, my soul is bowed down within me, therefore I call you to mind from the land of the Jordan, from the three peaks of Mount Hermon, and from the hill of Mizar.
غَمْرٌ يُنَادِي غَمْرًا عِنْدَ صَوْتِ مَيَازِيبِكَ. كُلُّ تَيَّارَاتِكَ وَلُجَجِكَ طَمَتْ عَلَيَّ. ٧ 7
Deep calls to deep at the noise of your waterfalls; all your waves and your billows have gone over me.
بِٱلنَّهَارِ يُوصِي ٱلرَّبُّ رَحْمَتَهُ، وَبِاللَّيْلِ تَسْبِيحُهُ عِنْدِي صَلَاةٌ لِإِلَهِ حَيَاتِي. ٨ 8
Yet Yahweh will command his covenant faithfulness in the daytime; in the night his song will be with me, a prayer to the God of my life.
أَقُولُ لِلهِ صَخْرَتِي: «لِمَاذَا نَسِيتَنِي؟ لِمَاذَا أَذْهَبُ حَزِينًا مِنْ مُضَايَقَةِ ٱلْعَدُوِّ؟». ٩ 9
I will say to God, my rock, “Why have you forgotten me? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?”
بِسَحْقٍ فِي عِظَامِي عَيَّرَنِي مُضَايِقِيَّ، بِقَوْلِهِمْ لِي كُلَّ يَوْمٍ: «أَيْنَ إِلَهُكَ؟». ١٠ 10
As with a sword in my bones, my adversaries rebuke me, while they always say to me, “Where is your God?”
لِمَاذَا أَنْتِ مُنْحَنِيَةٌ يَا نَفْسِي؟ وَلِمَاذَا تَئِنِّينَ فِيَّ؟ تَرَجَّيِ ٱللهَ، لِأَنِّي بَعْدُ أَحْمَدُهُ، خَلَاصَ وَجْهِي وَإِلَهِي. ١١ 11
Why are you bowed down, my soul? Why are you upset within me? Hope in God, for again I will praise him who is my salvation and my God.
