زَكَريَّا 10

اُطْلُبُوا مِنَ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلْمَطَرَ فِي أَوَانِ ٱلْمَطَرِ ٱلْمُتَأَخِّرِ، فَيَصْنَعَ ٱلرَّبُّ بُرُوقًا وَيُعْطِيَهُمْ مَطَرَ ٱلْوَبْلِ. لِكُلِّ إِنْسَانٍ عُشْبًا فِي ٱلْحَقْلِ. ١ 1
Ask for rain from Yahweh in the season of the spring rain— Yahweh who makes thunderstorms— and he gives rain showers to everyone and vegetation in the field.
لِأَنَّ ٱلتَّرَافِيمَ قَدْ تَكَلَّمُوا بِٱلْبَاطِلِ، وَٱلْعَرَّافُونَ رَأَوْا ٱلْكَذِبَ وَأَخْبَرُوا بِأَحْلَامِ كَذِبٍ. يُعَزُّونَ بِٱلْبَاطِلِ. لِذَلِكَ رَحَلُوا كَغَنَمٍ. ذَلُّوا إِذْ لَيْسَ رَاعٍ. ٢ 2
For household idols speak falsely; the diviners envision a lie; they tell deceitful dreams and give empty comfort, so they wander like sheep and suffer because there is no shepherd.
«عَلَى ٱلرُّعَاةِ ٱشْتَعَلَ غَضَبِي فَعَاقَبْتُ ٱلْأَعْتِدَةَ، لِأَنَّ رَبَّ ٱلْجُنُودِ قَدْ تَعَهَّدَ قَطِيعَهُ بَيْتَ يَهُوذَا، وَجَعَلَهُمْ كَفَرَسِ جَلَالِهِ فِي ٱلْقِتَالِ. ٣ 3
“My wrath burns against the shepherds; it is the male goats—the leaders—that I will punish. Yahweh of hosts will also attend to his flock, the house of Judah, and make them like his warhorse in battle!
مِنْهُ ٱلزَّاوِيَةُ. مِنْهُ ٱلْوَتَدُ. مِنْهُ قَوْسُ ٱلْقِتَالِ. مِنْهُ يَخْرُجُ كُلُّ ظَالِمٍ جَمِيعًا. ٤ 4
From Judah will come the cornerstone; from him will come the tent peg; from him will come the war bow; from him will come every ruler together.
وَيَكُونُونَ كَٱلْجَبَابِرَةِ ٱلدَّائِسِينَ طِينَ ٱلْأَسْوَاقِ فِي ٱلْقِتَالِ، وَيُحَارِبُونَ لِأَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ مَعَهُمْ، وَٱلرَّاكِبُونَ ٱلْخَيْلَ يَخْزَوْنَ. ٥ 5
They will be like warriors who trample their enemies into the mud of the streets in battle; they will make war, for Yahweh is with them, and they will shame those who ride warhorses.
وَأُقَوِّي بَيْتَ يَهُوذَا، وَأُخَلِّصُ بَيْتَ يُوسُفَ وَأُرَجِّعُهُمْ، لِأَنِّي قَدْ رَحِمْتُهُمْ. وَيَكُونُونَ كَأَنِّي لَمْ أَرْفُضْهُمْ، لِأَنِّي أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُهُمْ فَأُجِيبُهُمْ. ٦ 6
I will strengthen the house of Judah and save the house of Joseph; for I will restore them and have mercy on them. They will be as though I had not cast them off, for I am Yahweh their God, and I will respond to them.
وَيَكُونُ أَفْرَايِمُ كَجَبَّارٍ، وَيَفْرَحُ قَلْبُهُمْ كَأَنَّهُ بِٱلْخَمْرِ، وَيَنْظُرُ بَنُوهُمْ فَيَفْرَحُونَ وَيَبْتَهِجُ قَلْبُهُمْ بِٱلرَّبِّ. ٧ 7
Then Ephraim will be like a warrior, and their hearts will rejoice as with wine; their children will see and rejoice. Their hearts will rejoice in me!
أَصْفِرُ لَهُمْ وَأَجْمَعُهُمْ لِأَنِّي قَدْ فَدَيْتُهُمْ، وَيَكْثُرُونَ كَمَا كَثُرُوا. ٨ 8
I will whistle for them and gather them, for I will rescue them, and they will become as great as they previously were!
وَأَزْرَعُهُمْ بَيْنَ ٱلشُّعُوبِ فَيَذْكُرُونَنِي فِي ٱلْأَرَاضِي ٱلْبَعِيدَةِ، وَيَحْيَوْنَ مَعَ بَنِيهِمْ وَيَرْجِعُونَ. ٩ 9
I sowed them among the peoples, but they will remember me in distant countries, so they and their children will live and return.
وَأُرْجِعُهُمْ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ، وَأَجْمَعُهُمْ مِنْ أَشُّورَ، وَآتِي بِهِمْ إِلَى أَرْضِ جِلْعَادَ وَلُبْنَانَ، وَلَا يُوجَدُ لَهُمْ مَكَانٌ. ١٠ 10
For I will restore them from the land of Egypt and gather them from Assyria. I will bring them to the land of Gilead and Lebanon until there is no more room for them.
وَيَعْبُرُ فِي بَحْرِ ٱلضِّيقِ، وَيَضْرِبُ ٱللُّجَجَ فِي ٱلْبَحْرِ، وَتَجِفُّ كُلُّ أَعْمَاقِ ٱلنَّهْرِ، وَتُخْفَضُ كِبْرِيَاءُ أَشُّورَ، وَيَزُولُ قَضِيبُ مِصْرَ. ١١ 11
I will pass through the sea of their affliction; I will strike the waves of that sea and will dry up all the depths of the Nile. The majesty of Assyria will be brought down, and the scepter of Egypt will go away from the Egyptians.
وَأُقَوِّيهِمْ بِٱلرَّبِّ، فَيَسْلُكُونَ بِٱسْمِهِ، يَقُولُ ٱلرَّبُّ». ١٢ 12
I will strengthen them in myself, and they will walk in my name—this is Yahweh's declaration.”
