مزامير 89

قَصِيدَةٌ لِأَيْثَانَ ٱلْأَزْرَاحِيِّ بِمَرَاحِمِ ٱلرَّبِّ أُغَنِّي إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ. لِدَوْرٍ فَدَوْرٍ أُخْبِرُ عَنْ حَقِّكَ بِفَمِي.١1
A song. A psalm of the Korahites. I will sing evermore of the love of the Lord, proclaiming to all generations his faithfulness.
لِأَنِّي قُلْتُ: «إِنَّ ٱلرَّحْمَةَ إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ تُبْنَى. ٱلسَّمَاوَاتُ تُثْبِتُ فِيهَا حَقَّكَ».٢2
For your love you did promise to build up forever, your faithfulness firm as the heavens themselves.
«قَطَعْتُ عَهْدًا مَعَ مُخْتَارِي، حَلَفْتُ لِدَاوُدَ عَبْدِي:٣3
“I have made with my chosen a covenant, and sworn to David my servant,
إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ أُثَبِّتُ نَسْلَكَ، وَأَبْنِي إِلَى دَوْرٍ فَدَوْرٍ كُرْسِيَّكَ». سِلَاهْ.٤4
to establish his seed forever, and to build up his throne to all ages.” (Selah)
وَٱلسَّمَاوَاتُ تَحْمَدُ عَجَائِبَكَ يَارَبُّ، وَحَقَّكَ أَيْضًا فِي جَمَاعَةِ ٱلْقِدِّيسِينَ.٥5
Then the holy assembly in heaven praised your marvellous faithfulness, Lord.
لِأَنَّهُ مَنْ فِي ٱلسَّمَاءِ يُعَادِلُ ٱلرَّبَّ. مَنْ يُشْبِهُ ٱلرَّبَّ بَيْنَ أَبْنَاءِ ٱللهِ؟٦6
For who in the skies may compare with the Lord? Who is like the Lord amongst the gods?
إِلَهٌ مَهُوبٌ جِدًّا فِي مُؤَامَرَةِ ٱلْقِدِّيسِينَ، وَمَخُوفٌ عِنْدَ جَمِيعِ ٱلَّذِينَ حَوْلَهُ.٧7
A God to be feared in the holy assembly, awful and great above all who are round him.
يَارَبُّ إِلَهَ ٱلْجُنُودِ، مَنْ مِثْلُكَ؟ قَوِيٌّ، رَبٌّ، وَحَقُّكَ مِنْ حَوْلِكَ.٨8
O Lord God of hosts, who is mighty as you? Your strength and faithfulness, Lord, surround you.
أَنْتَ مُتَسَلِّطٌ عَلَى كِبْرِيَاءِ ٱلْبَحْرِ. عِنْدَ ٱرْتِفَاعِ لُجَجِهِ أَنْتَ تُسَكِّنُهَا.٩9
You are the Lord of the raging sea: when its waves surge, it is you who still them.
أَنْتَ سَحَقْتَ رَهَبَ مِثْلَ ٱلْقَتِيلِ. بِذِرَاعِ قُوَّتِكَ بَدَّدْتَ أَعْدَاءَكَ.١٠10
It was you who did pierce and crush Rahab in pieces, and scatter your foes by your mighty arm.
لَكَ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتُ. لَكَ أَيْضًا ٱلْأَرْضُ. ٱلْمَسْكُونَةُ وَمِلْؤُهَا أَنْتَ أَسَّسْتَهُمَا.١١11
Yours are the heavens, yours also the earth, the world and its fulness, it's you who did found them.
ٱلشِّمَالُ وَٱلْجَنُوبُ أَنْتَ خَلَقْتَهُمَا. تَابُورُ وَحَرْمُونُ بِٱسْمِكَ يَهْتِفَانِ.١٢12
The north and the south, it's you have created them; Tabor and Hermon shout praise to your name.
لَكَ ذِرَاعُ ٱلْقُدْرَةِ. قَوِيَّةٌ يَدُكَ. مُرْتَفِعَةٌ يَمِينُكَ.١٣13
You have an arm with the might of a hero; strong is your hand, high uplifted your right hand.
ٱلْعَدْلُ وَٱلْحَقُّ قَاعِدَةُ كُرْسِيِّكَ. ٱلرَّحْمَةُ وَٱلْأَمَانَةُ تَتَقَدَّمَانِ أَمَامَ وَجْهِكَ.١٤14
Justice and right are the base of your throne, kindness and faithfulness ever attend you.
طُوبَى لِلشَّعْبِ ٱلْعَارِفِينَ ٱلْهُتَافَ. يَارَبُّ، بِنُورِ وَجْهِكَ يَسْلُكُونَ.١٥15
Happy the people who know the glad shout, who walk, O Lord, in the light of your face.
بِٱسْمِكَ يَبْتَهِجُونَ ٱلْيَوْمَ كُلَّهُ، وَبِعَدْلِكَ يَرْتَفِعُونَ.١٦16
They exult in your name all the day, and your righteousness they extol.
لِأَنَّكَ أَنْتَ فَخْرُ قُوَّتِهِمْ، وَبِرِضَاكَ يَنْتَصِبُ قَرْنُنَا.١٧17
For you are our strength and our pride. Your favour will lift us to honour.
لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ مِجَنُّنَا، وَقُدُّوسَ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَلِكُنَا.١٨18
For the holy Lord of Israel keeps our defender and king.
حِينَئِذٍ كَلَّمْتَ بِرُؤْيَا تَقِيَّكَ وَقُلْتَ: «جَعَلْتُ عَوْنًا عَلَى قَوِيٍّ. رَفَعْتُ مُخْتَارًا مِنْ بَيْنِ ٱلشَّعْبِ.١٩19
In a vision of old you did speak in this way to the one whom you loved: “A crown I have set on the hero I chose to be over the people
وَجَدْتُ دَاوُدَ عَبْدِي. بِدُهْنِ قُدْسِي مَسَحْتُهُ.٢٠20
“I found my servant David, and anointed with holy oil.
ٱلَّذِي تَثْبُتُ يَدِي مَعَهُ. أَيْضًا ذِرَاعِي تُشَدِّدُهُ.٢١21
My hand will be with him forever, my arm will give him strength.
لَا يُرْغِمُهُ عَدُوٌّ، وَٱبْنُ ٱلْإِثْمِ لَا يُذَلِّلُهُ.٢٢22
“No enemy will dare to assail him, nor the wicked to oppress him;
وَأَسْحَقُ أَعْدَاءَهُ أَمَامَ وَجْهِهِ، وَأَضْرِبُ مُبْغِضِيهِ.٢٣23
but his foes I will shatter before him, I will strike down those who hate him.
أَمَّا أَمَانَتِي وَرَحْمَتِي فَمَعَهُ، وَبِٱسْمِي يَنْتَصِبُ قَرْنُهُ.٢٤24
“My loyal love shall attend him, and I will lift him to honour.
وَأَجْعَلُ عَلَى ٱلْبَحْرِ يَدَهُ، وَعَلَى ٱلْأَنْهَارِ يَمِينَهُ.٢٥25
I will set his hand on the sea, and his right hand on the rivers.
هُوَ يَدْعُونِي: أَبِي أَنْتَ، إِلَهِي وَصَخْرَةُ خَلَاصِي.٢٦26
“As for him, he will call me ‘My father, my God, and my rock of salvation.’
أَنَا أَيْضًا أَجْعَلُهُ بِكْرًا، أَعْلَى مِنْ مُلُوكِ ٱلْأَرْضِ.٢٧27
And I will make him my first-born, highest of kings on the earth.
إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ أَحْفَظُ لَهُ رَحْمَتِي. وَعَهْدِي يُثَبَّتُ لَهُ.٢٨28
“My love will I keep for him ever, my covenant with him shall stand fast.
وَأَجْعَلُ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ نَسْلَهُ مِثْلَ أَيَّامِ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ.٢٩29
His line will I make everlasting, and his throne as the days of the heavens.
إِنْ تَرَكَ بَنُوهُ شَرِيعَتِي وَلَمْ يَسْلُكُوا بِأَحْكَامِي،٣٠30
“If his children forsake my law, and walk not as I have ordained;
إِنْ نَقَضُوا فَرَائِضِي وَلَمْ يَحْفَظُوا وَصَايَايَ،٣١31
if they profane my statutes, and do not keep my commandments;
أَفْتَقِدُ بِعَصًا مَعْصِيَتَهُمْ، وَبِضَرَبَاتٍ إِثْمَهُمْ.٣٢32
“I will punish their sin with the rod, their iniquity with scourges.
أَمَّا رَحْمَتِي فَلَا أَنْزِعُهَا عَنْهُ، وَلَا أَكْذِبُ مِنْ جِهَةِ أَمَانَتِي.٣٣33
But my love will I not take from him, nor will I belie my faithfulness.
لَا أَنْقُضُ عَهْدِي، وَلَا أُغَيِّرُ مَا خَرَجَ مِنْ شَفَتَيَّ.٣٤34
“I will not profane my covenant by changing the word that has passed my lips.
مَرَّةً حَلَفْتُ بِقُدْسِي، أَنِّي لَا أَكْذِبُ لِدَاوُدَ:٣٥35
Once have I solemnly sworn and I would not lie to David,
نَسْلُهُ إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ يَكُونُ، وَكُرْسِيُّهُ كَٱلشَّمْسِ أَمَامِي.٣٦36
“that his line should endure forever, and his throne as the sun before me,
مِثْلَ ٱلْقَمَرِ يُثَبَّتُ إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ. وَٱلشَّاهِدُ فِي ٱلسَّمَاءِ أَمِينٌ. سِلَاهْ.٣٧37
firm as the moon which for ever and ever is fixed in the sky.” (Selah)
لَكِنَّكَ رَفَضْتَ وَرَذَلْتَ، غَضِبْتَ عَلَى مَسِيحِكَ.٣٨38
But you have cast off in contempt, and been furious with your anointed.
نَقَضْتَ عَهْدَ عَبْدِكَ، نَجَّسْتَ تَاجَهُ فِي ٱلتُّرَابِ.٣٩39
You have spurned the covenant with your servant, and his sacred crown dashed to the ground.
هَدَمْتَ كُلَّ جُدْرَانِهِ جَعَلْتَ حُصُونَهُ خَرَابًا.٤٠40
You have broken down all his walls, and laid his bulwarks in ruins.
أَفْسَدَهُ كُلُّ عَابِرِي ٱلطَّرِيقِ صَارَ عَارًا عِنْدَ جِيرَانِهِ.٤١41
All who pass on their way despoil him, the scorn of his neighbours is he now.
رَفَعْتَ يَمِينَ مُضَايِقِيهِ، فَرَّحْتَ جَمِيعَ أَعْدَائِهِ.٤٢42
You have given his foes the victory, and made all his enemies glad.
أَيْضًا رَدَدْتَ حَدَّ سَيْفِهِ، وَلَمْ تَنْصُرْهُ فِي ٱلْقِتَالِ.٤٣43
You have turned back his sword from the foe, you did not lift him up in the battle.
أَبْطَلْتَ بَهَاءَهُ، وَأَلْقَيْتَ كُرْسِيَّهُ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ.٤٤44
The sceptre you took from his hand, and his throne you did hurl to the ground.
قَصَّرْتَ أَيَّامَ شَبَابِهِ غَطَّيْتَهُ بِٱلْخِزْيِ. سِلَاهْ.٤٥45
You have shortened the days of his youth, and covered him with shame. (Selah)
حَتَّى مَتَى يَارَبُّ تَخْتَبِئُ كُلَّ ٱلِٱخْتِبَاءِ؟ حَتَّى مَتَى يَتَّقِدُ كَٱلنَّارِ غَضَبُكَ؟٤٦46
How long, Lord will you hide you forever? How long are the fires of your wrath to burn?
ٱذْكُرْ كَيْفَ أَنَا زَائِلٌ، إِلَى أَيِّ بَاطِلٍ خَلَقْتَ جَمِيعَ بَنِي آدَمَ!٤٧47
Remember, Lord, the shortness of life how fleeting you made all people.
أَيُّ إِنْسَانٍ يَحْيَا وَلَا يَرَى ٱلْمَوْتَ؟ أَيٌّ يُنَجِّي نَفْسَهُ مِنْ يَدِ ٱلْهَاوِيَةِ؟ سِلَاهْ. (Sheol h7585)٤٨48
Who can live without seeing death? Who can rescue their life from the clutch of Sheol? (Selah) (Sheol h7585)
أَيْنَ مَرَاحِمُكَ ٱلْأُوَلُ يَارَبُّ، ٱلَّتِي حَلَفْتَ بِهَا لِدَاوُدَ بِأَمَانَتِكَ؟٤٩49
Where, Lord, is your kindness of old, which you in your faithfulness swore to David?
ٱذْكُرْ يَارَبُّ عَارَ عَبِيدِكَ ٱلَّذِي أَحْتَمِلُهُ فِي حِضْنِي مِنْ كَثْرَةِ ٱلْأُمَمِ كُلِّهَا،٥٠50
Remember, O Lord, how your servants are mocked, how I bear in my heart the scorn of all nations
ٱلَّذِي بِهِ عَيَّرَ أَعْدَاؤُكَ يَارَبُّ، ٱلَّذِينَ عَيَّرُوا آثَارَ مَسِيحِكَ.٥١51
The scorn which your enemies hurl, O Lord, which they hurl at the footsteps of your anointed.
مُبَارَكٌ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَى ٱلدَّهْرِ. آمِينَ فَآمِينَ.٥٢52
Blest be the Lord, for ever and ever. Amen and Amen.
