Genesis 49:1-28

تكوين 49 : 1 - 28

A reading from the book of Genesis of Moses the prophet, may his holy blessings be with us. Amen.

من سفر التكوين لموسى النبي، بركاته المقدسة تكون معنا. آمين.

And Jacob called his sons and said, “Gather together, that I may tell you what shall befall you in the last days: “Gather together and hear, you sons of Jacob, And listen to Israel your father. “Reuben, you are my firstborn, My might and the beginning of my strength, The excellency of dignity and the excellency of power. Unstable as water, you shall not excel, Because you went up to your father’s bed; Then you defiled it—He went up to my couch.

وَدَعَا يَعْقُوبُ بَنِيهِ وَقَالَ: «اجْتَمِعُوا لأُنْبِئَكُمْ بِمَا يُصِيبُكُمْ فِي آخِرِ الأَيَّامِ. اجْتَمِعُوا وَاسْمَعُوا يَا بَنِي يَعْقُوبَ، وَاصْغَوْا إِلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ أَبِيكُمْ: رَأُوبَيْنُ، أَنْتَ بِكْرِي، قُوَّتِي وَأَوَّلُ قُدْرَتِي، فَضْلُ الرِّفْعَةِ وَفَضْلُ الْعِزِّ. فَائِرًا كَالْمَاءِ لاَ تَتَفَضَّلُ، لأَنَّكَ صَعِدْتَ عَلَى مَضْجَعِ أَبِيكَ. حِينَئِذٍ دَنَّسْتَهُ. عَلَى فِرَاشِي صَعِدَ.

“Simeon and Levi are brothers; Instruments of cruelty are in their dwelling place. Let not my soul enter their council; Let not my honor be united to their assembly; For in their anger they slew a man, And in their self-will they hamstrung an ox. Cursed be their anger, for it is fierce; And their wrath, for it is cruel! I will divide them in Jacob And scatter them in Israel.

شِمْعُونُ وَلاَوِي أَخَوَانِ، آلاَتُ ظُلْمٍ سُيُوفُهُمَا. فِي مَجْلِسِهِمَا لاَ تَدْخُلُ نَفْسِي. بِمَجْمَعِهِمَا لاَ تَتَّحِدُ كَرَامَتِي. لأَنَّهُمَا فِي غَضَبِهِمَا قَتَلاَ إِنْسَانًا، وَفِي رِضَاهُمَا عَرْقَبَا ثَوْرًا. مَلْعُونٌ غَضَبُهُمَا فَإِنَّهُ شَدِيدٌ، وَسَخَطُهُمَا فَإِنَّهُ قَاسٍ. أُقَسِّمُهُمَا فِي يَعْقُوبَ، وَأُفَرِّقُهُمَا فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ.

“Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise; Your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; Your father’s children shall bow down before you. Judah is a lion’s whelp; From the prey, my son, you have gone up. He bows down, he lies down as a lion; And as a lion, who shall rouse him? The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people. Binding his donkey to the vine, And his donkey’s colt to the choice vine, He washed his garments in wine, And his clothes in the blood of grapes. His eyes are darker than wine, And his teeth whiter than milk.

يَهُوذَا، إِيَّاكَ يَحْمَدُ إِخْوَتُكَ، يَدُكَ عَلَى قَفَا أَعْدَائِكَ، يَسْجُدُ لَكَ بَنُو أَبِيكَ. يَهُوذَا جَرْوُ أَسَدٍ، مِنْ فَرِيسَةٍ صَعِدْتَ يَا ابْنِي، جَثَا وَرَبَضَ كَأَسَدٍ وَكَلَبْوَةٍ. مَنْ يُنْهِضُهُ؟ لاَ يَزُولُ قَضِيبٌ مِنْ يَهُوذَا وَمُشْتَرِعٌ مِنْ بَيْنِ رِجْلَيْهِ حَتَّى يَأْتِيَ شِيلُونُ وَلَهُ يَكُونُ خُضُوعُ شُعُوبٍ. رَابِطًا بِالْكَرْمَةِ جَحْشَهُ، وَبِالْجَفْنَةِ ابْنَ آتانهِ، غَسَلَ بِالْخَمْرِ لِبَاسَهُ، وَبِدَمِ الْعِنَبِ ثَوْبَهُ. مُسْوَدُّ الْعَيْنَيْنِ مِنَ الْخَمْرِ، وَمُبْيَضُّ الأَسْنَانِ مِنَ اللَّبَنِ.

“Zebulun shall dwell by the haven of the sea; He shall become a haven for ships, And his border shall adjoin Sidon. “Issachar is a strong donkey, Lying down between two burdens; He saw that rest was good, And that the land was pleasant; He bowed his shoulder to bear a burden, And became a band of slaves.

زَبُولُونُ، عِنْدَ سَاحِلِ الْبَحْرِ يَسْكُنُ، وَهُوَ عِنْدَ سَاحِلِ السُّفُنِ، وَجَانِبُهُ عِنْدَ صَيْدُونَ. يَسَّاكَرُ، حِمَارٌ جَسِيمٌ رَابِضٌ بَيْنَ الْحَظَائِرِ. فَرَأَى الْمَحَلَّ أَنَّهُ حَسَنٌ، وَالأَرْضَ أَنَّهَا نَزِهَةٌ، فَأَحْنَى كَتِفَهُ لِلْحِمْلِ وَصَارَ لِلْجِزْيَةِ عَبْدًا.

“Dan shall judge his people As one of the tribes of Israel. Dan shall be a serpent by the way, A viper by the path, That bites the horse’s heels So that its rider shall fall backward. I have waited for your salvation, O Lord! “Gad, a troop shall tramp upon him, But he shall triumph at last. “Bread from Asher shall be rich, And he shall yield royal dainties. “Naphtali is a deer let loose; He uses beautiful words.

دَانُ، يَدِينُ شَعْبَهُ كَأَحَدِ أَسْبَاطِ إِسْرَائِيلَ. يَكُونُ دَانُ حَيَّةً عَلَى الطَّرِيقِ، أُفْعُوانًا عَلَى السَّبِيلِ، يَلْسَعُ عَقِبَيِ الْفَرَسِ فَيَسْقُطُ رَاكِبُهُ إِلَى الْوَرَاءِ. لِخَلاَصِكَ انْتَظَرْتُ يَا رَبُّ. جَادُ، يَزْحَمُهُ جَيْشٌ، وَلكِنَّهُ يَزْحَمُ مُؤَخَّرَهُ. أَشِيرُ، خُبْزُهُ سَمِينٌ وَهُوَ يُعْطِي لَذَّاتِ مُلُوكٍ. نَفْتَالِي، أَيِّلَةٌ مُسَيَّبَةٌ يُعْطِي أَقْوَالاً حَسَنَةً.

“Joseph is a fruitful bough, A fruitful bough by a well; His branches run over the wall. The archers have bitterly grieved him, Shot at him and hated him. But his bow remained in strength, And the arms of his hands were made strong By the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob (From there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel), By the God of your father who will help you, And by the Almighty who will bless you With blessings of heaven above, Blessings of the deep that lies beneath, Blessings of the breasts and of the womb. The blessings of your father Have excelled the blessings of my ancestors, Up to the utmost bound of the everlasting hills. They shall be on the head of Joseph, And on the crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers.

يُوسُفُ، غُصْنُ شَجَرَةٍ مُثْمِرَةٍ، غُصْنُ شَجَرَةٍ مُثْمِرَةٍ عَلَى عَيْنٍ. أَغْصَانٌ قَدِ ارْتَفَعَتْ فَوْقَ حَائِطٍ. فَمَرَّرَتْهُ وَرَمَتْهُ وَاضْطَهَدَتْهُ أَرْبَابُ السِّهَامِ. وَلكِنْ ثَبَتَتْ بِمَتَانَةٍ قَوْسُهُ، وَتَشَدَّدَتْ سَوَاعِدُ يَدَيْهِ. مِنْ يَدَيْ عَزِيزِ يَعْقُوبَ، مِنْ هُنَاكَ، مِنَ الرَّاعِي صَخْرِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، مِنْ إِلهِ أَبِيكَ الَّذِي يُعِينُكَ، وَمِنَ الْقَادِرِ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ الَّذِي يُبَارِكُكَ، تَأْتِي بَرَكَاتُ السَّمَاءِ مِنْ فَوْقُ، وَبَرَكَاتُ الْغَمْرِ الرَّابِضِ تَحْتُ. بَرَكَاتُ الثَّدْيَيْنِ وَالرَّحِمِ. بَرَكَاتُ أَبِيكَ فَاقَتْ عَلَى بَرَكَاتِ أَبَوَيَّ. إِلَى مُنْيَةِ الآكَامِ الدَّهْرِيَّةِ تَكُونُ عَلَى رَأْسِ يُوسُفَ، وَعَلَى قِمَّةِ نَذِيرِ إِخْوَتِهِ.

“Benjamin is a ravenous wolf; In the morning he shall devour the prey, And at night he shall divide the spoil.” All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is what their father spoke to them. And he blessed them; he blessed each one according to his own blessing.

بَنْيَامِينُ ذِئْبٌ يَفْتَرِسُ. فِي الصَّبَاحِ يَأْكُلُ غَنِيمَةً، وَعِنْدَ الْمَسَاءِ يُقَسِّمُ نَهْبًا». جَمِيعُ هؤُلاَءِ هُمْ أَسْبَاطُ إِسْرَائِيلَ الاثْنَا عَشَرَ. وَهذَا مَا كَلَّمَهُمْ بِهِ أَبُوهُمْ وَبَارَكَهُمْ. كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ بِحَسَبِ بَرَكَتِهِ بَارَكَهُمْ.

Glory to the Holy Trinity our God unto the age of all ages. Amen.

مجداً للثالوث القدوس إلهنا إلى الأبد وإلى أبد الآبدين كلها. آمين.



Isaiah 40:9-31

أشعياء 40 : 9 - 31

A reading from the book of Isaiah the prophet, may his holy blessings be with us. Amen.

من سفر أشعياء النبي، بركاته المقدسة تكون معنا. آمين.

O Zion, You who bring good tidings, Get up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, You who bring good tidings, Lift up your voice with strength, Lift it up, be not afraid; Say to the cities of Judah, “Behold your God!”

عَلَى جَبَل عَال اصْعَدِي، يَا مُبَشِّرَةَ صِهْيَوْنَ. ارْفَعِي صَوْتَكِ بِقُوَّةٍ، يَا مُبَشِّرَةَ أورُشَليم. ارْفَعِي لاَ تَخَافِي. قُولِي لِمُدُنِ يَهُوذَا: «هُوَذَا إِلهُكِ.

Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him. He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, And carry them in His bosom, And gently lead those who are with young.

هُوَذَا السَّيِّدُ الرَّبُّ بِقُوَّةٍ يَأْتِي وَذِرَاعُهُ تَحْكُمُ لَهُ. هُوَذَا أُجْرَتُهُ مَعَهُ وَعُمْلَتُهُ قُدَّامَهُ. كَرَاعٍ يَرْعَى قَطِيعَهُ. بِذِرَاعِهِ يَجْمَعُ الْحُمْلاَنَ، وَفِي حِضْنِهِ يَحْمِلُهَا، وَيَقُودُ الْمُرْضِعَاتِ».

Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, Measured heaven with a span And calculated the dust of the earth in a measure? Weighed the mountains in scales And the hills in a balance? Who has directed the Spirit of the Lord, Or as His counselor has taught Him? With whom did He take counsel, and who instructed Him, And taught Him in the path of justice? Who taught Him knowledge, And showed Him the way of understanding?

مَنْ كَالَ بِكَفِّهِ الْمِيَاهَ، وَقَاسَ السَّمَاوَاتِ بِالشِّبْرِ، وَكَالَ بِالْكَيْلِ تُرَابَ الأَرْضِ، وَوَزَنَ الْجِبَالَ بِالْقَبَّانِ، وَالآكَامَ بِالْمِيزَانِ؟ مَنْ قَاسَ رُوحَ الرَّبِّ، وَمَنْ مُشِيرُهُ يُعَلِّمُهُ؟ مَنِ اسْتَشَارَهُ فَأَفْهَمَهُ وَعَلَّمَهُ فِي طَرِيقِ الْحَقِّ، وَعَلَّمَهُ مَعْرِفَةً وَعَرَّفَهُ سَبِيلَ الْفَهْمِ؟

Behold, the nations are as a drop in a bucket, And are counted as the small dust on the scales; Look, He lifts up the isles as a very little thing. And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, Nor its beasts sufficient for a burnt offering. All nations before Him are as nothing, And they are counted by Him less than nothing and worthless.

هُوَذَا الأُمَمُ كَنُقْطَةٍ مِنْ دَلْوٍ، وَكَغُبَارِ الْمِيزَانِ تُحْسَبُ. هُوَذَا الْجَزَائِرُ يَرْفَعُهَا كَدُقَّةٍ! وَلُبْنَانُ لَيْسَ كَافِيًا لِلإِيقَادِ، وَحَيَوَانُهُ لَيْسَ كَافِيًا لِمُحْرَقَةٍ. كُلُّ الأُمَمِ كَلاَ شَيْءٍ قُدَّامَهُ. مِنَ الْعَدَمِ وَالْبَاطِلِ تُحْسَبُ عِنْدَهُ.

To whom then will you liken God? Or what likeness will you compare to Him? The workman molds an image, The goldsmith overspreads it with gold, And the silversmith casts silver chains. Whoever is too impoverished for such a contribution Chooses a tree that will not rot; He seeks for himself a skillful workman To prepare a carved image that will not totter.

فَبِمَنْ تُشَبِّهُونَ اللهَ، وَأَيَّ شَبَهٍ تُعَادِلُونَ بِهِ؟ اَلصَّنَمُ يَسْبِكُهُ الصَّانِعُ، وَالصَّائِغُ يُغَشِّيهِ بِذَهَبٍ وَيَصُوغُ سَلاَسِلَ فِضَّةٍ. الْفَقِيرُ عَنِ التَّقْدِمَةِ يَنْتَخِبُ خَشَبًا لاَ يُسَوِّسُ، يَطْلُبُ لَهُ صَانِعًا مَاهِرًا لِيَنْصُبَ صَنَمًا لاَ يَتَزَعْزَعُ!

Have you not known? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in. He brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless.

أَلاَ تَعْلَمُونَ؟ أَلاَ تَسْمَعُونَ؟ أَلَمْ تُخْبَرُوا مِنَ الْبَدَاءَةِ؟ أَلَمْ تَفْهَمُوا مِنْ أَسَاسَاتِ الأَرْضِ؟ الْجَالِسُ عَلَى كُرَةِ الأَرْضِ وَسُكَّانُهَا كَالْجُنْدُبِ. الَّذِي يَنْشُرُ السَّمَاوَاتِ كَسَرَادِقَ، وَيَبْسُطُهَا كَخَيْمَةٍ لِلسَّكَنِ. الَّذِي يَجْعَلُ الْعُظَمَاءَ لاَ شَيْئًا، وَيُصَيِّرُ قُضَاةَ الأَرْضِ كَالْبَاطِلِ.

Scarcely shall they be planted, Scarcely shall they be sown, Scarcely shall their stock take root in the earth, When He will also blow on them, And they will wither, And the whirlwind will take them away like stubble.

لَمْ يُغْرَسُوا بَلْ لَمْ يُزْرَعُوا وَلَمْ يَتَأَصَّلْ فِي الأَرْضِ سَاقُهُمْ. فَنَفَخَ أَيْضًا عَلَيْهِمْ فَجَفُّوا، وَالْعَاصِفُ كَالْعَصْفِ يَحْمِلُهُمْ.

“To whom then will you liken Me, Or to whom shall I be equal?” says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, And see who has created these things, Who brings out their host by number; He calls them all by name, By the greatness of His might And the strength of His power; Not one is missing.

«فَبِمَنْ تُشَبِّهُونَنِي فَأُسَاوِيهِ؟» يَقُولُ الْقُدُّوسُ. ارْفَعُوا إِلَى الْعَلاَءِ عُيُونَكُمْ وَانْظُرُوا، مَنْ خَلَقَ هذِهِ؟ مَنِ الَّذِي يُخْرِجُ بِعَدَدٍ جُنْدَهَا، يَدْعُو كُلَّهَا بِأَسْمَاءٍ؟ لِكَثْرَةِ الْقُوَّةِ وَكَوْنِهِ شَدِيدَ الْقُدْرَةِ لاَ يُفْقَدُ أَحَدٌ.

Why do you say, O Jacob, And speak, O Israel: “My way is hidden from the Lord, And my just claim is passed over by my God”? Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.

لِمَاذَا تَقُولُ يَا يَعْقُوبُ وَتَتَكَلَّمُ يَا إِسْرَائِيلُ: «قَدِ اخْتَفَتْ طَرِيقِي عَنِ الرَّبِّ وَفَاتَ حَقِّي إِلهِي»؟ أَمَا عَرَفْتَ أَمْ لَمْ تَسْمَعْ؟ إِلهُ الدَّهْرِ الرَّبُّ خَالِقُ أَطْرَافِ الأَرْضِ لاَ يَكِلُّ وَلاَ يَعْيَا. لَيْسَ عَنْ فَهْمِهِ فَحْصٌ.

He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.

يُعْطِي الْمُعْيِيَ قُدْرَةً، وَلِعَدِيمِ الْقُوَّةِ يُكَثِّرُ شِدَّةً. اَلْغِلْمَانُ يُعْيُونَ وَيَتْعَبُونَ، وَالْفِتْيَانُ يَتَعَثَّرُونَ تَعَثُّرًا. وَأَمَّا مُنْتَظِرُو الرَّبِّ فَيُجَدِّدُونَ قُوَّةً. يَرْفَعُونَ أَجْنِحَةً كَالنُّسُورِ. يَرْكُضُونَ وَلاَ يَتْعَبُونَ. يَمْشُونَ وَلاَ يُعْيُونَ.

Glory to the Holy Trinity our God unto the age of all ages. Amen.

مجداً للثالوث القدوس إلهنا إلى الأبد وإلى أبد الآبدين كلها. آمين.



Zephaniah 3:14-20

صفنيا 3 : 14 - 20

A reading from the book of Zephaniah the prophet, may his holy blessings be with us. Amen.

من سفر صفنيا النبي، بركاته المقدسة تكون معنا. آمين.

Sing, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem! The Lord has taken away your judgments, He has cast out your enemy. The King of Israel, the Lord, is in your midst; You shall see disaster no more.

تَرَنَّمِي يَا ابْنَةَ صِهْيَوْنَ! اهْتُفْ يَا إِسْرَائِيلُ! افْرَحِي وَابْتَهِجِي بِكُلِّ قَلْبِكِ يَا ابْنَةَ أورُشَليم! قَدْ نَزَعَ الرَّبُّ الأَقْضِيَةَ عَلَيْكِ، أَزَالَ عَدُوَّكِ. مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ الرَّبُّ فِي وَسَطِكِ. لاَ تَنْظُرِينَ بَعْدُ شَرًّا.

In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: “Do not fear; Zion, let not your hands be weak. The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”

فِي ذلِكَ الْيَوْمِ يُقَالُ لأورُشَليم: «لاَ تَخَافِي يَا صِهْيَوْنُ. لاَ تَرْتَخِ يَدَاكِ. الرَّبُّ إِلهُكِ فِي وَسَطِكِ جَبَّارٌ. يُخَلِّصُ. يَبْتَهِجُ بِكِ فَرَحًا. يَسْكُتُ فِي مَحَبَّتِهِ. يَبْتَهِجُ بِكِ بِتَرَنُّمٍ».

“I will gather those who sorrow over the appointed assembly, Who are among you, To whom its reproach is a burden. Behold, at that time I will deal with all who afflict you; I will save the lame, And gather those who were driven out; I will appoint them for praise and fame In every land where they were put to shame. At that time I will bring you back, Even at the time I gather you; For I will give you fame and praise Among all the peoples of the earth, When I return your captives before your eyes,” Says the Lord.

«أَجْمَعُ الْمَحْزُونِينَ عَلَى الْمَوْسِمِ. كَانُوا مِنْكِ. حَامِلِينَ عَلَيْهَا الْعَارَ. هأَنَذَا فِي ذلِكَ الْيَوْمِ أُعَامِلُ كُلَّ مُذَلِّلِيكِ، وَأُخَلِّصُ الظَّالِعَةَ، وَأَجْمَعُ الْمَنْفِيَّةَ، وَأَجْعَلُهُمْ تَسْبِيحَةً وَاسْمًا فِي كُلِّ أَرْضِ خِزْيِهِمْ، فِي الْوَقْتِ الَّذِي فِيهِ آتِي بِكُمْ وَفِي وَقْتِ جَمْعِي إِيَّاكُمْ. لأَنِّي أُصَيِّرُكُمُ اسْمًا وَتَسْبِيحَةً فِي شُعُوبِ الأَرْضِ كُلِّهَا، حِينَ أَرُدُّ مَسْبِيِّيكُمْ قُدَّامَ أَعْيُنِكُمْ، قَالَ الرَّبُّ».

Glory to the Holy Trinity our God unto the age of all ages. Amen.

مجداً للثالوث القدوس إلهنا إلى الأبد وإلى أبد الآبدين كلها. آمين.



Zechariah 9:9-15

زكريا 9 : 9 - 15

A reading from the book of Zechariah the prophet, may his holy blessings be with us. Amen.

من سفر زكريا النبي، بركاته المقدسة تكون معنا. آمين.

“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, Lowly and riding on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey. I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim And the horse from Jerusalem; The battle bow shall be cut off. He shall speak peace to the nations; His dominion shall be ‘from sea to sea, And from the River to the ends of the earth.’

اِبْتَهِجِي جِدًّا يَا ابْنَةَ صِهْيَوْنَ، اهْتِفِي يَا بِنْتَ أورُشَليم. هُوَذَا مَلِكُكِ يَأْتِي إِلَيْكِ. هُوَ عَادِلٌ وَمَنْصُورٌ وَدِيعٌ، وَرَاكِبٌ عَلَى حِمَارٍ وَعَلَى جَحْشٍ ابْنِ آتان. وَأَقْطَعُ الْمَرْكَبَةَ مِنْ أَفْرَايِمَ وَالْفَرَسَ مِنْ أورُشَليم وَتُقْطَعُ قَوْسُ الْحَرْبِ. وَيَتَكَلَّمُ بِالسَّلاَمِ لِلأُمَمِ، وَسُلْطَانُهُ مِنَ الْبَحْرِ إِلَى الْبَحْرِ، وَمِنَ النَّهْرِ إِلَى أَقَاصِي الأَرْضِ.

“As for you also, Because of the blood of your covenant, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit. Return to the stronghold, You prisoners of hope. Even today I declare That I will restore double to you. For I have bent Judah, My bow, Fitted the bow with Ephraim, And raised up your sons, O Zion, Against your sons, O Greece, And made you like the sword of a mighty man.”

وَأَنْتِ أَيْضًا فَإِنِّي بِدَمِ عَهْدِكِ قَدْ أَطْلَقْتُ أَسْرَاكِ مِنَ الْجُبِّ الَّذِي لَيْسَ فِيهِ مَاءٌ. ارْجِعُوا إِلَى الْحِصْنِ يَا أَسْرَى الرَّجَاءِ. الْيَوْمَ أَيْضًا أُصَرِّحُ أَنِّي أَرُدُّ عَلَيْكِ ضِعْفَيْنِ. لأَنِّي أَوْتَرْتُ يَهُوذَا لِنَفْسِي، وَمَلأْتُ الْقَوْسَ أَفْرَايِمَ، وَأَنْهَضْتُ أَبْنَاءَكِ يَا صِهْيَوْنُ عَلَى بَنِيكِ يَا يَاوَانُ، وَجَعَلْتُكِ كَسَيْفِ جَبَّارٍ.

Then the Lord will be seen over them, And His arrow will go forth like lightning. The Lord God will blow the trumpet, And go with whirlwinds from the south. The Lord of hosts will defend them; They shall devour and subdue with slingstones. They shall drink and roar as if with wine; They shall be filled with blood like basins, Like the corners of the altar.

وَيُرَى الرَّبُّ فَوْقَهُمْ، وَسَهْمُهُ يَخْرُجُ كَالْبَرْقِ، وَالسَّيِّدُ الرَّبُّ يَنْفُخُ فِي الْبُوقِ وَيَسِيرُ فِي زَوَابعِ الْجَنُوبِ. رَبُّ الْجُنُودِ يُحَامِي عَنْهُمْ فَيَأْكُلُونَ وَيَدُوسُونَ حِجَارَةَ الْمِقْلاَعِ، وَيَشْرَبُونَ وَيَضُجُّونَ كَمَا مِنَ الْخَمْرِ، وَيَمْتَلِئُونَ كَالْمَنْضَحِ وَكَزَوَايَا الْمَذْبَحِ.

Glory to the Holy Trinity our God unto the age of all ages. Amen.

مجداً للثالوث القدوس إلهنا إلى الأبد وإلى أبد الآبدين كلها. آمين.
