رَاعُوث 4

فَصَعِدَ بُوعَزُ إِلَى ٱلْبَابِ وَجَلَسَ هُنَاكَ. وَإِذَا بِٱلْوَلِيِّ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ عَنْهُ بُوعَزُ عَابِرٌ. فَقَالَ: «مِلْ وَٱجْلِسْ هُنَا أَنْتَ يَا فُلَانُ ٱلْفُلَانِيُّ». فَمَالَ وَجَلَسَ. ١ 1
Now Boaz went up to the gate and sat down there. Soon, the near kinsman of whom Boaz had spoken came by. Boaz said to him, “My friend, come over and sit down here.” The man came over and sat down.
ثُمَّ أَخَذَ عَشَرَةَ رِجَالٍ مِنْ شُيُوخِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ وَقَالَ لَهُمُ: «ٱجْلِسُوا هُنَا». فَجَلَسُوا. ٢ 2
Then Boaz took ten men of the elders of the city and said, “Sit down here.” So they sat down.
ثُمَّ قَالَ لِلْوَلِيِّ: «إِنَّ نُعْمِيَ ٱلَّتِي رَجَعَتْ مِنْ بِلَادِ مُوآبَ تَبِيعُ قِطْعَةَ ٱلْحَقْلِ ٱلَّتِي لِأَخِينَا أَلِيمَالِكَ. ٣ 3
Boaz said to the near kinsman, “Naomi, who has returned from the country of Moab, is selling the parcel of land that was our brother Elimelek's.
فَقُلْتُ إِنِّي أُخْبِرُكَ قَائِلًا: ٱشْتَرِ قُدَّامَ ٱلْجَالِسِينَ وَقُدَّامَ شُيُوخِ شَعْبِي. فَإِنْ كُنْتَ تَفُكُّ فَفُكَّ. وَإِنْ كُنْتَ لَا تَفُكُّ فَأَخْبِرْنِي لِأَعْلَمَ. لِأَنَّهُ لَيْسَ غَيْرُكَ يَفُكُّ وَأَنَا بَعْدَكَ». فَقَالَ: «إِنِّي أَفُكُّ». ٤ 4
I thought to inform you and say to you, 'Buy it in the presence of those who are sitting here, and in the presence of the elders of my people.' If you wish to redeem it, redeem it. But if you do not wish to redeem it, then tell me, so that I may know, for there is no one to redeem it besides you, and I am after you.” Then the other man said, “I will redeem it.”
فَقَالَ بُوعَزُ: «يَوْمَ تَشْتَرِي ٱلْحَقْلَ مِنْ يَدِ نُعْمِي تَشْتَرِي أَيْضًا مِنْ يَدِ رَاعُوثَ ٱلْمُوآبِيَّةِ ٱمْرَأَةِ ٱلْمَيِّتِ لِتُقِيمَ ٱسْمَ ٱلْمَيِّتِ عَلَى مِيرَاثِهِ». ٥ 5
Then Boaz said, “On the day that you buy the field from the hand of Naomi, you must also take Ruth the Moabite woman, the widow of a dead man, in order to raise up the name of the dead on his inheritance.”
فَقَالَ ٱلْوَلِيُّ: «لَا أَقْدِرُ أَنْ أَفُكَّ لِنَفْسِي لِئَّلَا أُفْسِدَ مِيرَاثِي. فَفُكَّ أَنْتَ لِنَفْسِكَ فِكَاكِي لِأَنِّي لَا أَقْدِرُ أَنْ أَفُكَّ». ٦ 6
Then the near kinsman said, “I cannot redeem it for myself without damaging my own inheritance. You take my right of redemption for yourself, for I cannot redeem it.”
وَهَذِهِ هِيَ ٱلْعَادَةُ سَابِقًا فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي أَمْرِ ٱلْفِكَاكِ وَٱلْمُبَادَلَةِ، لِأَجْلِ إِثْبَاتِ كُلِّ أَمْرٍ. يَخْلَعُ ٱلرَّجُلُ نَعْلَهُ وَيُعْطِيهِ لِصَاحِبِهِ. فَهَذِهِ هِيَ ٱلْعَادَةُ فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٧ 7
Now this was the custom in former times in Israel concerning the redemption and exchange of goods. To confirm all things, a man took off his shoe and gave it to his neighbor; this was the manner of making legal agreements in Israel.
فَقَالَ ٱلْوَلِيُّ لِبُوعَزَ: «ٱشْتَرِ لِنَفْسِكَ». وَخَلَعَ نَعْلَهُ. ٨ 8
So the near kinsman said to Boaz, “Buy it for yourself,” and he took off his sandal.
فَقَالَ بُوعَزُ لِلشُّيُوخِ وَلِجَمِيعِ ٱلشَّعْبِ: «أَنْتُمْ شُهُودٌ ٱلْيَوْمَ أَنِّي قَدِ ٱشْتَرَيْتُ كُلَّ مَا لِأَلِيمَالِكَ وَكُلَّ مَا لِكِلْيُونَ وَمَحْلُونَ مِنْ يَدِ نُعْمِي. ٩ 9
Then Boaz said to the elders and to all the people, “You are witnesses today that I have bought all that was Elimelek's and all that was Kilion's and Mahlon's from the hand of Naomi.
وَكَذَا رَاعُوثُ ٱلْمُوآبِيَّةُ ٱمْرَأَةُ مَحْلُونَ قَدِ ٱشْتَرَيْتُهَا لِيَ ٱمْرَأَةً، لِأُقِيمَ ٱسْمَ ٱلْمَيِّتِ عَلَى مِيرَاثِهِ وَلَا يَنْقَرِضُ ٱسْمُ ٱلْمَيِّتِ مِنْ بَيْنِ إِخْوَتِهِ وَمِنْ بَابِ مَكَانِهِ. أَنْتُمْ شُهُودٌ ٱلْيَوْمَ». ١٠ 10
Also Ruth the Moabite woman, the wife of Mahlon, I have acquired to be my wife, in order that I might raise up the name of the dead man on his inheritance, so that his name will not be cut off from among his brothers and from the gate of his place. Today you are witnesses!”
فَقَالَ جَمِيعُ ٱلشَّعْبِ ٱلَّذِينَ فِي ٱلْبَابِ وَٱلشُّيُوخُ: «نَحْنُ شُهُودٌ. فَلْيَجْعَلِ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلْمَرْأَةَ ٱلدَّاخِلَةَ إِلَى بَيْتِكَ كَرَاحِيلَ وَكَلَيْئَةَ ٱللَّتَيْنِ بَنَتَا بَيْتَ إِسْرَائِيلَ. فَٱصْنَعْ بِبَأْسٍ فِي أَفْرَاتَةَ وَكُنْ ذَا ٱسْمٍ فِي بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ. ١١ 11
All the people who were in the gate and the elders said, “We are witnesses. May Yahweh make the woman who has come into your house like Rachel and Leah, the two who built up the house of Israel; and may you prosper in Ephrathah and be renowned in Bethlehem.
وَلْيَكُنْ بَيْتُكَ كَبَيْتِ فَارَصَ ٱلَّذِي وَلَدَتْهُ ثَامَارُ لِيَهُوذَا، مِنَ ٱلنَّسْلِ ٱلَّذِي يُعْطِيكَ ٱلرَّبُّ مِنْ هَذِهِ ٱلْفَتَاةِ». ١٢ 12
May your house be like the house of Perez, whom Tamar bore to Judah, through the offspring that Yahweh will give you with this young woman.”
فَأَخَذَ بُوعَزُ رَاعُوثَ ٱمْرَأَةً وَدَخَلَ عَلَيْهَا، فَأَعْطَاهَا ٱلرَّبُّ حَبَلًا فَوَلَدَتِ ٱبْنًا. ١٣ 13
So Boaz took Ruth, and she became his wife. He slept with her, and Yahweh allowed her to become pregnant, and she bore a son.
فَقَالَتِ ٱلنِّسَاءُ لِنُعْمِي: «مُبَارَكٌ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلَّذِي لَمْ يُعْدِمْكِ وَلِيًّا ٱلْيَوْمَ لِكَيْ يُدْعَى ٱسْمُهُ فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ١٤ 14
The women said to Naomi, “May Yahweh be blessed, who has not left you today without a near kinsman, this baby. May his name be famous in Israel.
وَيَكُونُ لَكِ لِإِرْجَاعِ نَفْسٍ وَإِعَالَةِ شَيْبَتِكِ. لِأَنَّ كَنَّتَكِ ٱلَّتِي أَحَبَّتْكِ قَدْ وَلَدَتْهُ، وَهِيَ خَيْرٌ لَكِ مِنْ سَبْعَةِ بَنِينَ». ١٥ 15
May he be for you a restorer of life and a nourisher of your old age, for your daughter-in-law, who loves you, who is better to you than seven sons, has borne him.”
فَأَخَذَتْ نُعْمِي ٱلْوَلَدَ وَوَضَعَتْهُ فِي حِضْنِهَا وَصَارَتْ لَهُ مُرَبِّيَةً. ١٦ 16
Naomi took the child, laid him in her bosom, and took care of him.
وَسَمَّتْهُ ٱلْجَارَاتُ ٱسْمًا قَائِلَاتٍ: «قَدْ وُلِدَ ٱبْنٌ لِنُعْمِي» وَدَعَوْنَ ٱسْمَهُ عُوبِيدَ. هُوَ أَبُو يَسَّى أَبِي دَاوُدَ. ١٧ 17
The women of the neighborhood gave him a name, saying, “A son has been born to Naomi.” They named him Obed. He became the father of Jesse, who became the father of David.
وَهَذِهِ مَوَالِيدُ فَارَصَ: فَارَصُ وَلَدَ حَصْرُونَ، ١٨ 18
Now these were the descendants of Perez: Perez became the father of Hezron,
وَحَصْرُونُ وَلَدَ رَامَ، وَرَامُ وَلَدَ عَمِّينَادَابَ، ١٩ 19
Hezron became the father of Ram, Ram became the father of Amminadab,
وَعَمِّينَادَابُ وَلَدَ نَحْشُونَ، وَنَحْشُونُ وَلَدَ سَلْمُونَ، ٢٠ 20
Amminadab became the father of Nahshon, Nahshon became the father of Salmon,
وَسَلْمُونُ وَلَدَ بُوعَزَ، وَبُوعَزُ وَلَدَ عُوبِيدَ، ٢١ 21
Salmon became the father of Boaz, Boaz became the father of Obed,
وَعُوبِيدُ وَلَدَ يَسَّى، وَيَسَّى وَلَدَ دَاوُدَ. ٢٢ 22
Obed became the father of Jesse, and Jesse became the father of David.
