أمام الملك أغريباس

1 فَقَالَ أَغْرِيبَاسُ لِبُولُسَ: ”نَسْمَحُ لَكَ أَنْ تُدَافِعَ عَنْ نَفْسِكَ.“ فَأَشَارَ بُولُسُ بِيَدِهِ وَبَدَأَ دِفَاعَهُ فَقَالَ: 2 ”أَيُّهَا الْمَلِكُ أَغْرِيبَاسُ، إِنِّي أَعْتَبِرُ نَفْسِي سَعِيدًا أَنْ أُدَافِعَ عَنْ نَفْسِي أَمَامَكَ الْيَوْمَ، وَأَرُدَّ عَلَى شَكَاوَى الْيَهُودِ. 3 خَاصَّةً وَأَنَّكَ تَعْرِفُ جَيِّدًا كُلَّ عَادَاتِ الْيَهُودِ وَالْاِخْتِلَافَاتِ الْمَوْجُودَةِ بَيْنَهُمْ. لِذَلِكَ فَإِنِّي أَرْجُو أَنْ تَسْمَعَنِي بِصَبْرٍ.

Before King Agrippa

1 Then Agrippa said to Paul, “We allow you to defend yourself.” So Paul gestured with his hand and began his defense, saying, 2 “King Agrippa, I regard myself fortunate that I am defending myself before you today in responding to the charges of the Jews, 3 especially since you know so well all the customs of the Jews and the controversies existing among them. So please hear me patiently.

4 ”كُلُّ الْيَهُودِ يَعْرِفُونَ سِيرَتِي مُنْذُ كُنْتُ طِفْلًا، وَيَعْرِفُونَ نَشْأَتِي فِي بَلَدِي وَعِيشَتِي فِي الْقُدْسِ. 5 فَهُمْ يَعْرِفُونِي مُنْذُ وَقْتٍ طَوِيلٍ. وَإِنْ أَرَادُوا، يُمْكِنُهُمْ أَنْ يَشْهَدُوا أَنِّي كُنْتُ أَتْبَعُ أَضْيَقَ مَذَاهِبِ دِينِنَا أَيْ كُنْتُ فَرِّيسِيًّا. 6 وَالْآنَ أَنَا أُحَاكَمُ بِسَبَبِ الرَّجَاءِ الَّذِي عِنْدِي فِي أَنْ يُحَقِّقَ اللهُ وَعْدَهُ لِآبَائِنَا. 7 وَهُوَ الْوَعْدُ الَّذِي تَرْجُو قَبَائِلُنَا الـ12 أَنْ يَتَحَقَّقَ بَيْنَمَا هُمْ يَعْبُدُونَ اللهَ بِمُوَاظَبَةٍ نَهَارًا وَلَيْلًا. وَبِسَبَبِ هَذَا الرَّجَاءِ أَيُّهَا الْمَلِكُ، يَشْتَكِي الْيَهُودُ ضِدِّي. 8 لِمَاذَا لَا تُصَدِّقُونَ أَنَّ اللهَ يُقِيمُ الْمَوْتَى؟

4 “All the Jews know my life history from when I was a child; they know my upbringing in my home country and my life in Jerusalem. 5 They have known me for a long time. If they are willing, they can testify that I was following the strictest school of our religion; that is, I was a Pharisee. 6 Now I am on trial because of the hope I have that Allah will fulfill his promise to our forefathers. 7 It is the promise which our twelve tribes are hoping will be fulfilled as they worship Allah diligently day and night. Yet it's because of this hope, O King, that the Jews are making charges against me. 8 Why do you [people] not believe that Allah can raise the dead?

9 ”أَنَا نَفْسِي كُنْتُ مُقْتَنِعًا أَنَّهُ يَجِبُ أَنْ أَعْمَلَ كُلَّ مَا فِي إِمْكَانِي لِأُعَارِضَ اسْمَ عِيسَى النَّاصِرِيِّ. 10 وَنَفَّذْتُ هَذَا فِي الْقُدْسِ بِتَفْوِيضٍ مِنْ رُؤَسَاءِ الْأَحْبَارِ، وَوَضَعْتُ كَثِيرِينَ مِنْ أَتْبَاعِ عِيسَى فِي السِّجْنِ. وَعِنْدَمَا كَانَ يَحْكُمُ الْمَجْلِسُ عَلَى أَحَدِهِمْ بِالْإِعْدَامِ، كُنْتُ أُعْطِي صَوْتِي بِالْمُوَافَقَةِ عَلَى الْحُكْمِ. 11 وَكَثِيرًا مَا ذَهَبْتُ إِلَى بُيُوتِ الْعِبَادَةِ لِأُعَذِّبَهُمْ وَأُحَاوِلَ أَنْ أُجْبِرَهُمْ عَلَى الْكُفْرِ. وَبَلَغَ تَعَصُّبِي ضِدَّهُمْ أَنْ ذَهَبْتُ إِلَى مُدُنٍ خَارِجَ بِلَادِنَا لِكَيْ أَضْطَهِدَهُمْ.

9 “I myself was convinced that I ought to do everything I possibly could to oppose the name of Isa of Nazareth. 10 I followed through on this in Jerusalem, with authorization from the chief priests. I put many of the followers of Isa in prison. And whenever the council condemned any of them to be executed, I would cast my vote in favor of the judgment. 11 I frequently went to the houses of worship to torment them and try to force them into a denial of the faith. My fanaticism against them reached [such a level] that I [even] went to cities outside our country in order to persecute them.

12 ”وَذَاتَ مَرَّةٍ، كُنْتُ ذَاهِبًا إِلَى دِمَشْقَ بِتَفْوِيضٍ وَتَوْكِيلٍ مِنْ رُؤَسَاءِ الْأَحْبَارِ. 13 وَبَيْنَمَا أَنَا فِي الطَّرِيقِ، أَيُّهَا الْمَلِكُ، رَأَيْتُ عِنْدَ الظُّهْرِ نُورًا مِنَ السَّمَاءِ أَبْهَى مِنْ نُورِ الشَّمْسِ أَضَاءَ حَوْلِي وَحَوْلَ أَصْحَابِي. 14 فَسَقَطْنَا كُلُّنَا عَلَى الْأَرْضِ. وَسَمِعْتُ صَوْتًا يَقُولُ لِي بِاللُّغَةِ الْعِبْرِيَّةِ: ’يَا شَاوُلُ! يَا شَاوُلُ! لِمَاذَا تَضْطَهِدُنِي؟ صَعْبٌ عَلَيْكَ أَنْ تَرْفُسَ الْمِنْخَاسَ.‘*

12 “One time I was going to Damascus with the authorization and commission of the chief priests. 13 While I was on the way, O King, around noontime, I saw a light from the sky, brighter than the light of the sun, that shone around me and around my companions. 14 We all fell to the ground, and I heard a voice saying to me in the Hebrew language, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me? It's troublesome for you to kick against the goad.’*

15 فَسَأَلْتُهُ: ’مَنْ أَنْتَ يَا سَيِّدِي؟‘ فَأَجَابَ الْمَوْلَى: ’أَنَا عِيسَى الَّذِي أَنْتَ تَضْطَهِدُهُ. 16 قُمْ وَقِفْ عَلَى رِجْلَيْكَ. أَنَا ظَهَرْتُ لَكَ لِكَيْ أَجْعَلَكَ خَادِمًا وَشَاهِدًا لِهَذِهِ الرُّؤْيَا الَّتِي تَرَانِي فِيهَا الْآنَ، وَلِغَيْرِهَا مِنَ الرُّؤَى الَّتِي سَأُظْهِرُهَا لَكَ. 17 وَسَأُنْقِذُكَ مِنْ شَعْبِكَ وَمِنَ الشُّعُوبِ الْأُخْرَى. فَأَنَا أُرْسِلُكَ إِلَيْهِمْ 18 لِتَفْتَحَ عُيُونَهُمْ، وَتُرْجِعَهُمْ مِنَ الظَّلَامِ إِلَى النُّورِ، وَمِنْ سَيْطَرَةِ الشَّيْطَانِ إِلَى اللهِ، لِكَيْ يَنَالُوا مَغْفِرَةَ الذُّنُوبِ وَنَصِيبًا مَعَ الَّذِينَ هُمْ مُقَدَّسِينَ بِالْإِيمَانِ بِي.‘

15 I asked him, ‘Who are you, sir?’ And the Lord answered, ‘I am Isa, whom you are persecuting. 16 Get up and stand on your feet. I have appeared to you in order to make you a servant and witness of this vision in which you see me now, and of other visions that I will show you. 17 I will rescue you from your ethnic group and from other ethnic groups. For I am sending you to them 18 to open their eyes and turn them back from darkness to light and from the control of Satan to Allah, so that they will receive forgiveness of sins and a share among those who are sanctified through faith in me.’

19 ”وَلِهَذَا أَيُّهَا الْمَلِكُ أَغْرِيبَاسُ، لَمْ أُعَانِدْ هَذِهِ الرُّؤْيَا السَّمَائِيَّةَ. 20 فَدَعَوْتُ أَوَّلًا أَهْلَ دِمَشْقَ، ثُمَّ أَهْلَ الْقُدْسِ، ثُمَّ كُلَّ مَنْطِقَةِ يَهُوذَا، ثُمَّ الْأَجَانِبَ أَيْضًا، وَقُلْتُ لَهُمْ أَنْ يَتُوبُوا وَيَرْجِعُوا إِلَى اللهِ وَيَقُومُوا بِأَعْمَالٍ تَدُلُّ عَلَى أَنَّهُمْ تَابُوا فِعْلًا. 21 وَهَذَا هُوَ السَّبَبُ أَنَّ الْيَهُودَ أَمْسَكُونِي فِي مُجَمَّعِ بَيْتِ الله وَحَاوَلُوا أَنْ يَقْتُلُونِي. 22 وَلَكِنَّ اللهَ سَاعَدَنِي حَتَّى الْيَوْمِ، وَلِذَلِكَ أَنَا وَاقِفٌ هُنَا وَأَشْهَدُ لِلْبَسِيطِ وَلِلْعَظِيمِ عَلَى السَّوَاءِ. أَنَا لَا أَقُولُ شَيْئًا غَيْرَ مَا قَالَ عَنْهُ الْأَنْبِيَاءُ وَمُوسَى إِنَّهُ سَيَحْدُثُ.* 23 إِنَّ الْمَسِيحَ يَتَأَلَّمُ، وَيَكُونُ أَوَّلَ مَنْ يَقُومُ مِنَ الْمَوْتِ، وَيُبَشِّرُ شَعْبَهُ وَالشُّعُوبَ الْأُخْرَى بِالنُّورِ.“

19 “Therefore, King Agrippa, I did not oppose this heavenly vision. 20 First I called [to faith] the people of Damascus, then the people of Jerusalem, then the whole region of Judea, and then the foreigners as well. I told them to repent and turn to Allah and to act in ways that show that they really have repented. 21 This is the reason the Jews seized me at the Temple complex and tried to kill me. 22 But Allah has helped me to this day. So I am standing here and testifying to the simple and the great alike. I don't say anything other than what the prophets and Musa said would happen,* 23 [namely] that the Messiah would suffer and be the first to rise from death, and [that] he would proclaim the light to his own ethnic group and to the others [as well].”

24 وَهُنَا قَاطَعَ فُسْتُوسُ بُولُسَ فِي دِفَاعِهِ وَصَاحَ بِأَعْلَى صَوْتِهِ: ”أَنْتَ مَجْنُونٌ يَا بُولُسُ! تَبَحُّرُكَ فِي الْعِلْمِ أَفْقَدَكَ عَقْلَكَ!“ 25 فَأَجَابَهُ بُولُسُ: ”أَنَا لَسْتُ مَجْنُونًا يَا صَاحِبَ الْفَخَامَةِ فُسْتُوسَ، بَلْ مَا أَقُولُهُ صَحِيحٌ وَمَعْقُولٌ. 26 إِنَّ الْمَلِكَ عَلَى عِلْمٍ بِهَذِهِ الْأُمُورِ، وَفِي إِمْكَانِي أَنْ أُكَلِّمَهُ بِكُلِّ صَرَاحَةٍ. فَأَنَا مُتَأَكِّدٌ أَنَّهُ لَا يَخْفَى عَلَيْهِ شَيْءٌ مِنْ هَذِهِ الْأُمُورِ لِأَنَّهَا لَمْ تَحْدُثْ فِي زَاوِيَةٍ مُظْلِمَةٍ. 27 هَلْ تُؤْمِنُ بِالْأَنْبِيَاءِ أَيُّهَا الْمَلِكُ أَغْرِيبَاسُ؟ أَنَا عَارِفٌ أَنَّكَ تُؤْمِنُ!“ 28 فَقَالَ أَغْرِيبَاسُ لِبُولُسَ: ”هَلْ تَظُنُّ أَنَّ فِي هَذَا الْوَقْتِ الْقَصِيرِ يُمْكِنُكَ أَنْ تُقْنِعَنِي بِأَنْ أَصِيرَ مَسِيحِيًّا؟“ 29 فَأَجَابَ بُولُسُ: ”وَقْتٌ قَصِيرٌ أَوْ طَوِيلٌ، إِنِّي أَدْعُو اللهَ لَكَ وَلِجَمِيعِ الَّذِينَ يَسْمَعُونِي الْيَوْمَ أَنْ تَصِيرُوا مِثْلِي، وَلَكِنْ بِدُونِ هَذِهِ الْقُيُودِ.“

24 Here, Festus interrupted Paul's defense and shouted at the top of his voice, “You're crazy, Paul! Your depth of learning has made you lose your mind!” 25 But Paul replied, “I'm not crazy, Your Excellency Festus. On the contrary, what I am saying is true and reasonable. 26 The king is familiar with these matters. I can speak to him in all candor, for I am sure that none of these events are hidden from him because they did not take place in a dark corner! 27 Do you believe in the prophets, King Agrippa? I know you believe!” 28 Agrippa said to Paul, “Do you suppose you can persuade me in this short time to become a Christian?” 29 Paul replied, “Whether in a short or long time, I pray to Allah for both you and all those who hear me today to become like me, but without these restraints.”

30 فَقَامَ الْمَلِكُ، وَقَامَ مَعَهُ الْحَاكِمُ وَبِرْنِيسُ وَالْجَالِسُونَ مَعَهُمْ. 31 وَخَرَجُوا مِنَ الْقَاعَةِ وَهُمْ يَقُولُونَ بَعْضُهُمْ لِبَعْضٍ: ”هَذَا الرَّجُلُ لَمْ يَعْمَلْ شَيْئًا يَسْتَحِقُّ الْمَوْتَ أَوْ حَتَّى السِّجْنَ.“ 32 وَقَالَ أَغْرِيبَاسُ لِفُسْتُوسَ: ”هَذَا الرَّجُلُ كَانَ يُمْكِنُ أَنْ يُطْلَقَ سَرَاحُهُ، لَوْ لَمْ يَكُنْ قَدْ رَفَعَ قَضِيَّتَهُ إِلَى قَيْصَرَ.“

30 Then the king stood up, and along with him the governor, Bernice, and all those sitting with them. 31 They left the hall, saying to one another, “This man has not done anything to deserve death or even imprisonment.” 32 Agrippa said to Festus, “This man could have been set free if he had not appealed his case to Caesar.”
