اَلْمَزَامِيرُ 55

لِإِمَامِ ٱلْمُغَنِّينَ عَلَى «ذَوَاتِ ٱلْأَوْتَارِ». قَصِيدَةٌ لِدَاوُدَ اِصْغَ يَا ٱللهُ إِلَى صَلَاتِي، وَلَا تَتَغَاضَ عَنْ تَضَرُّعِي. ١ 1
For the chief musician; on stringed instruments. A maschil of David. Give ear to my prayer, God; and do not hide yourself from my plea.
ٱسْتَمِعْ لِي وَٱسْتَجِبْ لِي. أَتَحَيَّرُ فِي كُرْبَتِي وَأَضْطَرِبُ ٢ 2
Pay attention to me and answer me; I have no rest in my troubles
مِنْ صَوْتِ ٱلْعَدُوِّ، مِنْ قِبَلِ ظُلْمِ ٱلشِّرِّيرِ. لِأَنَّهُمْ يُحِيلُونَ عَلَيَّ إِثْمًا، وَبِغَضَبٍ يَضْطَهِدُونَنِي. ٣ 3
because of the voice of my enemies, because of the oppression of the wicked; for they bring trouble on me and persecute me in anger.
يَمْخَضُ قَلْبِي فِي دَاخِلِي، وَأَهْوَالُ ٱلْمَوْتِ سَقَطَتْ عَلَيَّ. ٤ 4
My heart trembles within me, and the terrors of death have fallen on me.
خَوْفٌ وَرَعْدَةٌ أَتَيَا عَلَيَّ، وَغَشِيَنِي رُعْبٌ. ٥ 5
Fearfulness and trembling have come on me, and horror has overwhelmed me.
فَقُلْتُ: «لَيْتَ لِي جَنَاحًا كَٱلْحَمَامَةِ، فَأَطِيرَ وَأَسْتَرِيحَ! ٦ 6
I said, “Oh, if only I had wings like a dove! Then would I fly away and be at rest.
هَأَنَذَا كُنْتُ أَبْعُدُ هَارِبًا، وَأَبِيتُ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ. سِلَاهْ. ٧ 7
See, then I would wander far away; I would stay in the wilderness. (Selah)
كُنْتُ أُسْرِعُ فِي نَجَاتِي مِنَ ٱلرِّيحِ ٱلْعَاصِفَةِ، وَمِنَ ٱلنَّوْءِ». ٨ 8
I would hurry to a shelter from the stormy wind and tempest.”
أَهْلِكْ يَارَبُّ، فَرِّقْ أَلْسِنَتَهُمْ، لِأَنِّي قَدْ رَأَيْتُ ظُلْمًا وَخِصَامًا فِي ٱلْمَدِينَةِ. ٩ 9
Devour them, Lord, confuse their language! For I have seen violence and strife in the city.
نَهَارًا وَلَيْلًا يُحِيطُونَ بِهَا عَلَى أَسْوَارِهَا، وَإِثْمٌ وَمَشَقَّةٌ فِي وَسَطِهَا. ١٠ 10
Day and night they go about on its walls; iniquity and mischief are in the middle of it.
مَفَاسِدُ فِي وَسَطِهَا، وَلَا يَبْرَحُ مِنْ سَاحَتِهَا ظُلْمٌ وَغِشٌّ. ١١ 11
Wickedness is in the middle of it; oppression and deceit do not leave its streets.
لِأَنَّهُ لَيْسَ عَدُوٌّ يُعَيِّرُنِي فَأَحْتَمِلَ. لَيْسَ مُبْغِضِي تَعَظَّمَ عَلَيَّ فَأَخْتَبِئَ مِنْهُ. ١٢ 12
For it was not an enemy who rebuked me, then I could have borne it; neither was it he who hated me who raised himself up against me, then I would have hidden myself from him.
بَلْ أَنْتَ إِنْسَانٌ عَدِيلِي، إِلْفِي وَصَدِيقِي، ١٣ 13
But it was you, a man equal to myself, my companion and my close friend.
ٱلَّذِي مَعَهُ كَانَتْ تَحْلُو لَنَا ٱلْعِشْرَةُ. إِلَى بَيْتِ ٱللهِ كُنَّا نَذْهَبُ فِي ٱلْجُمْهُورِ. ١٤ 14
We had sweet fellowship together; we walked in the house of God with the throng.
لِيَبْغَتْهُمُ ٱلْمَوْتُ. لِيَنْحَدِرُوا إِلَى ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ أَحْيَاءً، لِأَنَّ فِي مَسَاكِنِهِمْ، فِي وَسْطِهِمْ شُرُورًا. (Sheol h7585) ١٥ 15
Let death come suddenly on them; let them go down alive to Sheol, for wickedness is where they live, right among them. (Sheol h7585)
أَمَّا أَنَا فَإِلَى ٱللهِ أَصْرُخُ، وَٱلرَّبُّ يُخَلِّصُنِي. ١٦ 16
As for me, I will call on God, and Yahweh will save me.
مَسَاءً وَصَبَاحًا وَظُهْرًا أَشْكُو وَأَنُوحُ، فَيَسْمَعُ صَوْتِي. ١٧ 17
In the evening, morning and at noonday I complain and moan; he will hear my voice.
فَدَى بِسَلَامٍ نَفْسِي مِنْ قِتَالٍ عَلَيَّ، لِأَنَّهُمْ بِكَثْرَةٍ كَانُوا حَوْلِي. ١٨ 18
He will safely rescue my life from the battle that was against me, for those who fought against me were many.
يَسْمَعُ ٱللهُ فَيُذِلُّهُمْ، وَٱلْجَالِسُ مُنْذُ ٱلْقِدَمِ. سِلَاهْ. ٱلَّذِينَ لَيْسَ لَهُمْ تَغَيُّرٌ، وَلَا يَخَافُونَ ٱللهَ. ١٩ 19
God, the one who rules from eternity, will hear them and humiliate them. (Selah) They never change, and they do not fear God.
أَلْقَى يَدَيْهِ عَلَى مُسَالِمِيهِ. نَقَضَ عَهْدَهُ. ٢٠ 20
My friend has raised his hands against those who were at peace with him; he has not respected the covenant that he had.
أَنْعَمُ مِنَ ٱلزُّبْدَةِ فَمُهُ، وَقَلْبُهُ قِتَالٌ. أَلْيَنُ مِنَ ٱلزَّيْتِ كَلِمَاتُهُ، وَهِيَ سُيُوفٌ مَسْلُولَةٌ. ٢١ 21
His mouth was smooth as butter, but his heart was hostile; his words were softer than oil, yet they were actually drawn swords.
أَلْقِ عَلَى ٱلرَّبِّ هَمَّكَ فَهُوَ يَعُولُكَ. لَا يَدَعُ ٱلصِّدِّيقَ يَتَزَعْزَعُ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ. ٢٢ 22
Place your burdens on Yahweh, and he will sustain you; he will never allow a righteous person to totter.
وَأَنْتَ يَا ٱللهُ تُحَدِّرُهُمْ إِلَى جُبِّ ٱلْهَلَاكِ. رِجَالُ ٱلدِّمَاءِ وَٱلْغِشِّ لَا يَنْصُفُونَ أَيَّامَهُمْ. أَمَّا أَنَا فَأَتَّكِلُ عَلَيْكَ. ٢٣ 23
But you, God, will bring the wicked down into the pit of destruction; bloodthirsty and deceitful men will not live even half as long as others, but I will trust in you.
