مزامير 90

صَلَاةٌ لِمُوسَى رَجُلِ ٱللهِ يَارَبُّ، مَلْجَأً كُنْتَ لَنَا فِي دَوْرٍ فَدَوْرٍ.١1
A prayer of Moses, the man of God. Lord, you have been a home to us one generation after another.
مِنْ قَبْلِ أَنْ تُولَدَ ٱلْجِبَالُ، أَوْ أَبْدَأْتَ ٱلْأَرْضَ وَٱلْمَسْكُونَةَ، مُنْذُ ٱلْأَزَلِ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ أَنْتَ ٱللهُ.٢2
Before the mountains were born, or the earth and the world were brought forth, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
تُرْجِعُ ٱلْإِنْسَانَ إِلَى ٱلْغُبَارِ وَتَقُولُ: «ٱرْجِعُوا يَا بَنِي آدَمَ».٣3
You bring us back to the dust, you summon mortals to return.
لِأَنَّ أَلْفَ سَنَةٍ فِي عَيْنَيْكَ مِثْلُ يَوْمِ أَمْسِ بَعْدَ مَا عَبَرَ، وَكَهَزِيعٍ مِنَ ٱللَّيْلِ.٤4
For you see a thousand years as the passing of yesterday, as a watch in the night.
جَرَفْتَهُمْ. كَسِنَةٍ يَكُونُونَ. بِٱلْغَدَاةِ كَعُشْبٍ يَزُولُ.٥5
Your floods sweep them away; they are like a dream, or like grass which sprouts in the morning,
بِٱلْغَدَاةِ يُزْهِرُ فَيَزُولُ. عِنْدَ ٱلْمَسَاءِ يُجَزُّ فَيَيْبَسُ.٦6
which blossoms and sprouts in the morning, but by evening is cut and withered.
لِأَنَّنَا قَدْ فَنِينَا بِسَخَطِكَ وَبِغَضَبِكَ ٱرْتَعَبْنَا.٧7
For your anger consumes us, the heat of your wrath confounds us.
قَدْ جَعَلْتَ آثَامَنَا أَمَامَكَ، خَفِيَّاتِنَا فِي ضَوْءِ وَجْهِكَ.٨8
Our sins you have set before you, our secrets in the light of your face.
لِأَنَّ كُلَّ أَيَّامِنَا قَدِ ٱنْقَضَتْ بِرِجْزِكَ. أَفْنَيْنَا سِنِينَا كَقِصَّةٍ.٩9
For through your wrath our days are declining, we bring our years to an end as a sigh.
أَيَّامُ سِنِينَا هِيَ سَبْعُونَ سَنَةً، وَإِنْ كَانَتْ مَعَ ٱلْقُوَّةِ فَثَمَانُونَ سَنَةً، وَأَفْخَرُهَا تَعَبٌ وَبَلِيَّةٌ، لِأَنَّهَا تُقْرَضُ سَرِيعًا فَنَطِيرُ.١٠10
The span of our life is seventy years, or, if we are strong, maybe eighty; yet is their breadth but empty toil, for swiftly they go, and we fly away.
مَنْ يَعْرِفُ قُوَّةَ غَضَبَكَ؟ وَكَخَوْفِكَ سَخَطُكَ.١١11
Who lays to heart the power of your anger? Or who stands in reverent awe of your wrath?
إِحْصَاءَ أَيَّامِنَا هَكَذَا عَلِّمْنَا فَنُؤْتَى قَلْبَ حِكْمَةٍ.١٢12
O teach us to count our days so our minds may learn wisdom.
اِرْجِعْ يَارَبُّ، حَتَّى مَتَى؟ وَتَرَأَّفْ عَلَى عَبِيدِكَ.١٣13
Return, O Lord; why so long? Relent on your servants.
أَشْبِعْنَا بِٱلْغَدَاةِ مِنْ رَحْمَتِكَ، فَنَبْتَهِجَ وَنَفْرَحَ كُلَّ أَيَّامِنَا.١٤14
Grant us your love to the full in the morning, that all our days we may shout for joy.
فَرِّحْنَا كَٱلْأَيَّامِ ٱلَّتِي فِيهَا أَذْلَلْتَنَا، كَٱلسِّنِينِ ٱلَّتِي رَأَيْنَا فِيهَا شَرًّا.١٥15
Make us glad for the days you have humbled us, for the evil years we have seen.
لِيَظْهَرْ فِعْلُكَ لِعَبِيدِكَ، وَجَلَالُكَ لِبَنِيهِمْ.١٦16
Let your servants see you in action, show your majesty to their children.
وَلْتَكُنْ نِعْمَةُ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِنَا عَلَيْنَا، وَعَمَلَ أَيْدِينَا ثَبِّتْ عَلَيْنَا، وَعَمَلَ أَيْدِينَا ثَبِّتْهُ.١٧17
Let the grace of the Lord our God be upon us, uphold what our hands are striving to do.
