اَلْمَزَامِيرُ 79

مَزْمُورٌ. لِآسَافَ اَللَّهُمَّ، إِنَّ ٱلْأُمَمَ قَدْ دَخَلُوا مِيرَاثَكَ. نَجَّسُوا هَيْكَلَ قُدْسِكَ. جَعَلُوا أُورُشَلِيمَ أَكْوَامًا. ١ 1
A psalm of Asaph. God, foreign nations have come into your inheritance; they have defiled your holy temple; they have turned Jerusalem into a heap of ruins.
دَفَعُوا جُثَثَ عَبِيدِكَ طَعَامًا لِطُيُورِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ، لَحْمَ أَتْقِيَائِكَ لِوُحُوشِ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٢ 2
They have given the dead bodies of your servants as food to the birds of the skies, the bodies of your faithful people to the beasts of the earth.
سَفَكُوا دَمَهُمْ كَٱلْمَاءِ حَوْلَ أُورُشَلِيمَ، وَلَيْسَ مَنْ يَدْفِنُ. ٣ 3
They have shed their blood like water around Jerusalem, and there was none to bury them.
صِرْنَا عَارًا عِنْدَ جِيرَانِنَا، هُزْءًا وَسُخْرَةً لِلَّذِينَ حَوْلَنَا. ٤ 4
We have become a reproach for our neighbors, mocking and derision to those who are around us.
إِلَى مَتَى يَارَبُّ تَغْضَبُ كُلَّ ٱلْغَضَبِ، وَتَتَّقِدُ كَٱلنَّارِ غَيْرَتُكَ؟ ٥ 5
How long, Yahweh? Will you stay angry forever? How long will your jealous anger burn like fire?
أَفِضْ رِجْزَكَ عَلَى ٱلْأُمَمِ ٱلَّذِينَ لَا يَعْرِفُونَكَ، وَعَلَى ٱلْمَمَالِكِ ٱلَّتِي لَمْ تَدْعُ بِٱسْمِكَ، ٦ 6
Pour out your wrath on the nations that do not know you and on the kingdoms that do not call upon your name.
لِأَنَّهُمْ قَدْ أَكَلُوا يَعْقُوبَ وَأَخْرَبُوا مَسْكَنَهُ. ٧ 7
For they have devoured Jacob and destroyed his villages.
لَا تَذْكُرْ عَلَيْنَا ذُنُوبَ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ. لِتَتَقَدَّمْنَا مَرَاحِمُكَ سَرِيعًا، لِأَنَّنَا قَدْ تَذَلَّلْنَا جِدًّا. ٨ 8
Do not hold the sins of our forefathers against us; may your merciful actions come to us, for we are very low.
أَعِنَّا يَا إِلَهَ خَلَاصِنَا مِنْ أَجْلِ مَجْدِ ٱسْمِكَ، وَنَجِّنَا وَٱغْفِرْ خَطَايَانَا مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱسْمِكَ. ٩ 9
Help us, God of our salvation, for the sake of the glory of your name; save us and forgive our sins for your name's sake.
لِمَاذَا يَقُولُ ٱلْأُمَمُ: «أَيْنَ هُوَ إِلَهُهُمْ؟». لِتُعْرَفْ عِنْدَ ٱلْأُمَمِ قُدَّامَ أَعْيُنِنَا نَقْمَةُ دَمِ عَبِيدِكَ ٱلْمُهْرَاقِ. ١٠ 10
Why should the nations say, “Where is their God?” May the blood of your servants that was shed be avenged on the nations before our eyes.
لِيَدْخُلْ قُدَّامَكَ أَنِينُ ٱلْأَسِيرِ. كَعَظَمَةِ ذِرَاعِكَ ٱسْتَبْقِ بَنِي ٱلْمَوْتِ. ١١ 11
May the groans of the prisoners come before you; with the greatness of your power keep the children of death alive.
وَرُدَّ عَلَى جِيرَانِنَا سَبْعَةَ أَضْعَافٍ فِي أَحْضَانِهِمِ ٱلْعَارَ ٱلَّذِي عَيَّرُوكَ بِهِ يَارَبُّ. ١٢ 12
Pay back into the laps of our neighboring countries seven times as much as the insults with which they have insulted you, Lord.
أَمَّا نَحْنُ شَعْبُكَ وَغَنَمُ رِعَايَتِكَ نَحْمَدُكَ إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ. إِلَى دَوْرٍ فَدَوْرٍ نُحَدِّثُ بِتَسْبِيحِكَ. ١٣ 13
So we your people and sheep of your pasture will give you thanks forever. We will tell your praises to all generations.
