Targum Jonathan on Deuteronomy
Chapter 1א׳
1 א

אלה הדברים אִלֵּין פִּתְגָמֵי אוֹכָחוּתָא דִי מַלֵּיל משֶׁה עִם כָּל יִשְרָאֵל כַּנְפִינוּן לְוָתֵיהּ כַּד הֲווֹן בְּעִיבְרָא דְיַרְדְּנָא עָנָא וַאֲמַר לְהוֹן הֲלָא בְּמַדְבְּרָא בְּטַוְרָא דְסִינַי אִתְיְהִבַת לְכוֹן אוֹרַיְיתָא וּבְמֵישְׁרַיָא דְמוֹאָב אִתְפַּרְשַׁת לְכוֹן כַּמָּה נִיסִין וּפְרִישַׁן עָבַד לְכוֹן קוּדְשָׁא בְּרִיךְ הוּא מִזְמַן דַּעֲבַרְתּוּן עַל גֵּיף יַמָא דְסוּף דַּעֲבַד לְכוֹן אִסְטְרַט לְכָל שִׁבְטָא וְשִׁבְטָא וְאַתּוּן סְטֵיתוּן מִבָּתַר מֵימְרֵיהּ וְאַרְגַּזְתּוּן קֳדָמוֹי בְּפָארָן עַל מֵימְרָא אַלְלַיָא וּטְפַלְתּוּן עֲלוֹי מִילֵי שִׁקְרָא וְאִתְרַעַמְתּוּן עַל מַנָא דְאָחִית לְכוֹן חִיוַור מִן שְׁמַיָא וְשַׁיֵילְתּוּן בִּישְרָא בַּחֲצֵרוֹת וַהֲוֵי חָמֵי לְכוֹן לְמִשְׁתֵּיצְיָא מִגּוֹ עַלְמָא אִלוּלֵי דִדְכַר לְכוֹן זְכוּת אַבְהַתְכוֹן צַדִיקַיָא וּמַשְׁכַּן זִמְנָא וַאֲרוֹן קְיָימָא וּמָאנָא קוּדְשָׁא דַּחֲמִיתוּן דַּהֲבָא סַנִינָא וְכַפֵּר לְכוֹן עַל חוֹבַת עֵיגַל דַּהֲבָא

These are the words of admonition which Mosheh spake with all Israel. He gathered them together to him while they were beyond the Jordan, and answered and said to them: Was it not in the wilderness at the mountain of Sinai that the law was given to you? and in the plains of Moab you were made to understand how many miracles and signs the Holy One, blessed be He, had wrought for you, from the time that you passed over the border of the Weedy Sea, where He made for you a way for every one of your tribes. But you declined from His word, and wrought provocation before Him, in Pharan, on account of the words of the spies, and put together lying words against Him, and murmured about the manna, which He had made to come down for you, white from the heavens; in Hazeroth you demanded flesh, and made yourselves deserving to perish from the midst of the world, but for the memory, on your behalf, of the merit of your righteous fathers, the tabernacle of ordinance, and the ark of the covenant, and the holy vessels which you had covered with pure gold, and made atonement for you on account of the sin of the golden calf.

2 ב

מַהֲלַךְ חַדְסַר יוֹמִין מֵחוֹרֵב מֵאוֹרַח טַוְורָא דְגַבְלָא עַד רְקַם גֵּיאָה וְעַל דִּי סְטִיתוּן וְאַרְגַּזְתּוּן קֳדָם יְיָ אִיתְחַרְתּוּן אַרְבְּעִין שְׁנִין

It is a journey of eleven days (only) from Horeb by the way of Mount Gebal unto Rekem Giah; but because you declined and provoked the Lord to displeasure, you have been retarded forty years.

3 ג

וַהֲוָה לְסוֹף אַרְבְּעִין שְׁנִין בְּחַדְסַר יֶרַח הוּא יַרְחָא דִשְׁבַט בְּחַד בְּיַרְחָא מַלֵּיל משֶׁה עִם בְּנֵי יִשְרָאֵל כְּכָל דִּי פַקֵּיד יְיָ יָתֵיהּ לְוַתְהוֹן

And it was at the end of forty years, in the eleventh month, the month of Shebat, on the first of the month, that Mosheh spake with the sons of Israel according to all that the Lord had given him commandment for them.

4 ד

מִן בָּתַר דִּמְחָא יַת סִיחוֹן מַלְכָּא דֶאֱמוֹרָאָה דִיתֵיב בְּחֶשְׁבּוֹן וְיַת עוֹג מַלְכָּא דְמַתְנַן דִּיתֵיב בְּעַשְׁתַּרְוָותָא בְּאֶדְרֶעָת

After He had smitten Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon, and Og the king of Mathnan, who dwelt at Astarvata in Edrehath,

5 ה

בְּעִיבְרָא דְיוֹרְדְּנָא בְּאַרְעָא דְמוֹאָב שׁוֹרֵי משֶׁה לְמַלְפָא יַת פִּתְגָמֵי אוֹרַיְיתָא הֲדָא לְמֵימָר

beyond Jordan, in the land of Moab, began Mosheh to speak the words of this law, saying:

6 ו

יְיָ אֱלָהֵין מַלֵיל עִמָן וְלָא אֲנָא בְּאַנְפֵּי נַפְשִׁי בְּחוֹרֵב לְמֵימָר סַגִי לְכוֹן וְאִתְהַנִי לְכוֹן עַד הָאִידְנָא דְקַבֵּילְתּוּן בֵּיהּ אוֹרַיְיתָא וַעֲבַדְתּוּן בֵּיהּ מַשְׁכְּנָא וּמָנוֹי וְאַקֵימְתּוּן רַבָּנִין עֲלֵיכוֹן וּמַבְעַן בִּישׁ לְכוֹן לְאִיתְרָחָא בְּטַוְורָא הָדֵין

The Lord our God spake with us (and not I, of my own mind) in Horeb, saying: It is enough for you, and hath been profitable for you until this time (during) which you have received the law, and have made the tabernacle and its vessels, and appointed your princes over you; but now it would be evil for you to tarry longer at this mount.

7 ז

אִתְפְּנִיאוּ וְטוּלוּ לְכוֹן לַעֲרָד וְחוּרְמָה וְעוּלוּ לְטַוְורָא דֶאֱמוֹרָאָה וּלְוַת כָּל דַּיְירֵי עַמּוֹן וּמוֹאָב וְגַבְלָא בְּמֵישְׁרָא דְחוֹרְשָׁא בְּטַוְורָא בִּשְׁפֵיילְתָּא וּבְדָרוֹמָא וּבִסְפַר יַמָא אַשְׁקְלוּן וְקִיסְרִין אַרַע כְּנַעֲנָאָה עַד קַלְדוֹהִי וְלִבְנָן אֲתַר טַוְורֵי בֵּית מַקְדְּשָׁא עַד נַהֲרָא רַבָּא נַהֲרָא פְּרָת

Turn you, and journey to Arad and Hormah, and go up to the mountain of the Amorites; and to the dwelling-places of Ammon, Moab, and Gebala, in the plains of the forests, in mountain and valley, and by the south on the shore of the sea, Ashkelon and Kiserin, the land of the Kenaanite unto Kaldohi, and Lebanon, the place of the mountain of the sanctuary, to the great river, the River Phrat.

8 ח

חֲמוֹן דִּי מְסָרִית קֳדָמֵיכוֹן יַת דַּיְירֵי אַרְעָא וְלָא תִצְטַרְכוּן לְמֵיטוּל זַיְינָא עוּלוּ וְאַחֲסִינוּ יַת אַרְעָא וְקָבְעוּ בָּהּ דִּפְטַיָא וּפַלְגוּהָא הֵי כְמָא דְקַיֵים לְאַבְהַתְכוֹן לְאַבְרָהָם לְיִצְחָק וּלְיַעֲקב לְמִתַּן לְהוֹן וְלִבְנֵיהוֹן בַּתְרֵיהוֹן

See, I have given up the inhabitants of the land before you; nor shall it be needful to carry arms; go in and possess the land, and appoint the allotters, and divide it, even as the Lord sware to your fathers, to Abraham, Izhak, and Jakob, that He would give it unto them and their sons after them.

9 ט

וַאֲמָרִית לְכוֹן בְּעִידָנָא הַהִיא לְמֵימָר לֵיתָנָא שַׁבְקִינְכוֹן עַל דַּיָינָא חַד דַּאֲנָא לָא יָכִילְנָא בִּלְחוֹדִי לִמְסוֹבָרָא יַתְכוֹן

And I spake to you at that time, saying: We will not leave you with but one judge, for I am not able to bear you alone.

10 י

מֵימְרָא דַיְיָ אֱלָהָכוֹן אַסְגֵי יַתְכוֹן וְהָאִיתֵיכוֹן יוֹמָא דֵין הֵי כְּכוֹכְבֵי שְׁמַיָא לִסְגֵי

The Word of the Lord our God hath multiplied you; and, behold, you are today as the stars of heaven for multitude.

11 יא

יְיָ אֱלָהָא דְאַבְהַתְכוֹן יוֹסֵף עֲלֵיכוֹן כְּוַותְכוֹן אֶלֶף זִמְנִין מְטוּל בִּרְכָתִי דָא וִיבָרֵךְ יַתְכוֹן בְּלָא סְכוּמָא הֵיכְמָא דְמַלֵּיל לְכוֹן

The Lord God of your fathers increase you a thousand fold on account of this my benediction, and bless you beyond numbering as He hath said unto you.

12 יב

הֵיךְ אֲנָא יָכִיל בִּלְחוֹדִי לְמִסְבּוֹל טַרְחוֹת אַפְקַרְסוּתְכוֹן וּדְמִחַשְׁלִין עֲלֵי בִישְׁתָּא וּמִילֵי דִיגַנְבוּן דְּמַפְקִין סִלְעָא לְאַפּוֹקֵי תְּרֵי

But how can I alone sustain the labour, your sensuality, your evil thoughts, your words of strife, your offering one shekel for two?

13 יג

זַמְנוּ לְכוֹן גּוּבְרִין חַכִּימִין וְסוּכְלְתָנוּן מֵרַעֲיוֹנֵיהוֹן וּמָארֵי מַנְדְּעָא לְשִׁבְטֵיכוֹן וְאֵימַנִינוּן רֵישִׁין עֲלֵיכוֹן

Present, then, from among you wise men, prudent in their thinking, men of wisdom, by your tribes, and I will appoint them to be chiefs over you.

14 יד

וְאַתֵיבְתִּין יָתִי וַאֲמַרְתּוּן תַּקִּין פִּתְגָמָא דְמַלֵּילְתָּא לְמֶעֱבַד

And you answered me and said: The thing that thou hast spoken it is right for us to do.

15 טו

וְדַבָּרִית יַת רֵישֵׁי שִׁבְטֵיכוֹן וְאוֹרַכְתִּנּוּן בְּמִלַיָא גּוּבְרִין חַכִּימִין וּמָרֵי מַנְדְּעָא וְסוּכְלְתָנִין מֵרַעֲיוֹנֵיהוֹן לָא אַשְׁכָּחִית וּמְנִיתֵיתוּן רֵישֵׁי עֲלֵיכוֹן רַבָּנֵי אַלְפִין רַבָּנֵי מַאֲוָותָא רַבָּנֵי חַמְשִׁין תְּרֵיסַר אַלְפִין רַבָּנֵי עִשַרְיָיתָא שִׁית רִיבְוָון וְסַרְכִין לְשִׁבְטֵיכוֹן

So I took the chiefs of your tribes, and moved them kindly with words; wise men, masters of knowledge, but prudent in their thoughts, I found not; and I appointed them chiefs over you, rabbans of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties; twelve thousand rabbans of tens, six myriads, officers of your tribes.

16 טז

וּפַקֵּדִית יַת דַּיָינֵיכוֹן בְּעִידָנָא הַהִיא יַת סִדְרֵי דִינַיָא לְמֵימָר קַבִּילוּ מִן אֲחוּכוֹן דְּלָא יְמַלֵּיל חָד כָּל מִילוֹי וְחָד מְקַטַע מִילוֹי וּמִדִּשְׁמַעֲתּוּן מִלֵּיהוֹן לֵית אֶפְשַׁר לְכוֹן דְּלָא לְמִדַנְהוֹן וּתְדוּנוּן דִּינָא בִּקְשׁוֹט וּפְשָׁרוּת שְׁלָמָא בֵּין גַּבְרָא לְאָחוֹי וּבֵין מַאן דְּמֶאֱגַר מִילֵי דִינִין

And I charged your judges at that time with the orders of judgments, saying: So hear your brethren that one may not (be permitted to) speak all his words, while another is compelled to cut his words short; and so hearken to their words, as that it may be impossible for you not to judge them, and deliver judgment in truth, and to resolve (a matter) completely between a man and his brother, and between him who hireth words of litigation.

17 יז

לָא תִשְׁתְּמוֹדְעוּן אַפִּין בְּדִינָא מִילֵי זְעֵירָא הֵי כְּמִילֵי רַבָּא תִשְׁמְעוּן וְלָא תִדַּחֲלוּן מִן קֳדָם עַתִּיר וְשׁוּלְטַן אֲרוּם דִּינָא מִן קֳדָם יְיָ וְחָמֵי כָּל טוּמְרַיָא וּפִתְגָמָא דְיִקְשֵׁי מִנְכוֹן תְּקַרְבוּן לְוָתִי וְאַשְׁמְעִינֵיהּ

You shall not have respect to persons in a judgment; you shall hear little words as well as great ones, nor be afraid before the rich man and the ruler; for a judgment is from before the Lord, and He seeth every secret. But the thing that is too hard for you bring to me, and I will hear it.

18 יח

וּפַקֵּדִית יַתְכוֹן בְּעִידָנָא הַהִיא יַת כָּל עַשְרָא פִּתְגָמַיָא דְתַעְבְּדוּן בֵּינֵי דִינֵי מָמוֹנָא לְדִינֵי נַפְשָׁתָא

And at that time I taught you all the Ten Words which you are to practise about judgments of money, and judgments of life.

19 יט

וּנְטָלָנָא מֵחוֹרֵב וְהַלִיכְנָא יַת כָּל מַדְבְּרָא רַבָּא וּדְחִילָא הַהוּא דַחֲמִיתוּן חֵיוָן כִּכְשׁוּרִין וְעַקְרַבִּין כְּקַשְׁתִּין סַרְיָין רַמְיָין לְקוֹבְלֵיכוֹן אוֹרַח טַוְורָא דְאֵימוֹרָאָה הֵיכְמָא דְפַקֵּיד יְיָ אֱלָהָנָא יָתָנָא וְאָתֵינָא עַד רְקַם גֵּיעָה

And we journeyed from Horeb, and came through all that great and fearful desert, where you saw serpents like boughs, and loathsome scorpions darting at you like arrows, on the way of the mountain of the Amoraah, as the Lord our God had commanded us, and came to Rekem Giah.

20 כ

וַאֲמָרִית לְכוֹן אֲתֵיתוּן עַד טַוְורָא דֶאֱמוֹרָאָה דַיְיָ אֱלָהָנָא יָהֵיב לָנָא

And I said to you, Ye are come to the mountain of the Amoraah, which the Lord our God will give to us.

21 כא

חָמוּן דִּיהַב יְיָ אֱלָהָכוֹן לְכוֹן יַת אַרְעָא סוּקוּ וְאַחֲסִינוּ הֵיכְמָא דְמַלֵּיל יְיָ אֱלָהָכוֹן לְכוֹן לָא תִידַחֲלוּן וְלָא תִיתַבְּרוּן

Behold, the Lord our God hath given you the land; arise and possess it, as the Lord your God hath told you; fear not, nor be dismayed (broken).

22 כב

וְקָרֵיבְתּוּן לְוָתִי בְּעַרְבּוּבְיָא כּוּלְכוֹן וַאֲמַרְתּוּן נְשַׁדֵּר גּוּבְרִין קֳדָמָנָא וְיִתְרָגְנוּן לָנָא יַת אַרְעָא וִיתֵיבוּן יָתָנָא פִּתְגָמָא יַת אוֹרְחָא דְנִיסַק בָּהּ וְיַת קִרְוַיָא דְנֵיעוּל לְוַתְהוֹן

And all of you came to me in a body, and said, We will send men before us to examine the land for us, and bring us back word by what way we shall go up to it, and the cities we should enter.

23 כג

וּשְׁפַר בְּעֵינַי פִּתְגָמָא וּדְבָרִית מִנְכוֹן תְּרֵיסַר גּוּבְרִין בְּרִירִין גּוּבְרָא חָד לְשִׁבְטָא

And the thing was proper in my eyes; and I took from you twelve chosen men, one man for a tribe,

24 כד

וְאִתְפְּנִיּוּ וּסְלִיקוּ לְטַוְורָא וְאָתוּ עַד נַחֲלָא דְאַתְכְּלָא וּתְרִגִינוּ יָתָהּ

and they turned and went up into the mountain, and came to the stream of Ethkela, and explored it.

25 כה

וּנְסִיבוּ בִּידֵיהוֹן מִן אִיבָּא דְאַרְעָא וְאָחִיתוּ לְוָתָנָא וְאָתִיבוּ יָתָנָא פִּתְגָמָא וַאֲמָרוּ כָּלֵב וִיהוֹשֻׁעַ טָבָא אַרְעָא דַיְיָ אֱלָהָנָא יָהֵיב לָנָא

And they took in their hands of the produce of the land and brought to us. And they returned us word; and Kaleb and Jehoshua said, The land which the Lord our God hath given us is good.

26 כו

וְלָא צְבִיתוּן לְמֵיסוֹק וְהֵמַנְתּוּן לְפִתְגָמֵי עַשְרָא רְשִׁיעִין וְסָרֵיבְתּוּן עַל מֵימְרָא דַיְיָ אֱלָהָכוֹן

But you were not willing to go up, but believed the words of the ten wicked ones, and rebelled against the Word of the Lord your God.

27 כז

וְרַגִינְתּוּן בְּמַשְׁכְּנֵיכוֹן נְסֵיבְתּוּן בְּנֵיכוֹן וּבְנָתֵיכוֹן בְּעִיטְפֵיכוֹן לְמֵימָר וַוי לְכוֹן סַגִיפִין מְחַר אַתּוּן מִתְקַטְלִין מְטוֹל דְּסָנֵי יְיָ יָתָנָא אַפְקָנָא מִן אַרְעָא דְמִצְרַיִם לְמִימְסַר יָתָנָא בִּידָא דֶאֱמוֹרָאֵי לְשֵׁצֵיוּתָנָא

And you cried in your tents, taking your sons and your daughters to your breasts, saying, Woe to you, ye stricken ones! tomorrow ye will be slain. Why hath the Lord hated us, to have brought us out of the land of Mizraim, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites to destroy us?

28 כח

לְאָן אֲנַחְנָא סַלְקִין אָחָנָא מַסְמִיסַן יַת לִיבָּנָא לְמֵימָר עַם רַב וּתְקֵיף מִנָנָא קִירְוַון רַבְרְבָן וּכְרִיכַן עַד צֵית שְׁמַיָא וְאוּף בְּנֵי עֶפְרוֹן גִּבָּרָא חֲמֵינָא תַּמָן

How shall we go up? Our brethren have dissolved our hearts, saying, The people are greater and mightier than we; their cities are vast, and walled to the height of heaven, and we saw there also the sons of Ephron the giant.

29 כט

וַאֲמָרִית לְכוֹן לָא תִתְבְּרוּן וְלָא תִדַחֲלוּן מִנְהוֹן

And I said to you, Be not broken down, nor be afraid of them:

30 ל

מֵימְרָא דַיְיָ אֱלָהָכוֹן דִּמְדַבֵּר קֳדָמֵיכוֹן הוּא יַגִּיחַ לְכוֹן כְּכָל מַה דַּעֲבַד לְכוֹן בְּמִצְרַיִם לְמֵיחְמֵיכוֹן

the Word of the Lord your God who goeth before you will Himself fight for you, according to all that He did for you in Mizraim before your eyes.

31 לא

וּבְמַדְבְּרָא דַחֲמֵיתָא חִוְויָא קָלָן מַלְיָין אֶרֶס דִּקְטוֹל וְסוֹבְרָךְ יְיָ אֱלָהָךְ בַּעֲנָנֵי אִיקַר שְׁכִינְתֵּיהּ הֵיכְמָא דִמְסוֹבַר גְּבַר יַת בְּרֵיהּ בְּכָל אָרְחָא דְהַלֵיכְתּוּן עַד זְמַן מֵיתֵיכוֹן עַד אַתְרָא הָדֵין

And in the desert, where thou sawest burning serpents full of deadly venom, the Lord thy God bare thee with the glorious clouds of His Shekinah, as a man carrieth his child, all the way that you went, until you have come to this place.

32 לב

וּבְפִתְגָמָא הָדֵין לֵיתֵיכוֹן מְהֵימְנִין בְּמֵימְרָא דַיְיָ אֱלָהָכוֹן

But in this thing you believed not in the Word of the Lord your God,

33 לג

דִּמְדַבֵּר קֳדָמֵיכוֹן בְּאָרְחָא לְאִיתַקְנָא לְכוֹן אֲתַר בֵּית מֵשְׁרוֹי לְאַשְׁרָיוּתְכוֹן בְּעַמּוּדָא דְאֵישָׁא בְּלֵילְיָא לְאַנְהָרוּתְכוֹן בְּאָרְחָא דְתֶהֱכוֹן בָּהּ וְעַמּוּדָא דַעֲנָנָא בִּימָמָא

who led before you in the way to prepare for you the place of your encampments, in the pillar of fire by night to light you in the way you should go, and in the pillar of the cloud by day.

34 לד

וּשְׁמִיעַ קֳדָם יְיָ יַת קַל פִּתְגָמֵיכוֹן וּרְגַז וְקַיֵּים לְמֵימָר

And the voice of your words was heard before the Lord, and He was displeased, and did make oath saying,

35 לה

אִין יֶחֱמוּן גְּבַר בְּגוּבְרַיָא הָאִילֵין דָּרָא בִישָׁא הָדֵין יַת אַרְעָא טַבְתָא דְקַיֵּימִית לְמִתַּן לְאַבְהַתְכוֹן

If any one of the men of this evil generation shall see the good land which I covenanted to give unto their fathers,

36 לו

אֱלָהֵן כָּלֵב בַּר יְפוּנֶה הוּא יֶחֱמִינָהּ וְלֵיהּ אִיתֵּן יַת אַרְעָא טַבְתָא אַרְעָא דְחֶבְרוֹן דִּמְטַיֵּיל בָּהּ וְלִבְנוֹי חוֹלַף דְּאַשְׁלִים בָּתַר דַּחַלְתָּא דַיְיָ

except Kaleb bar Jephunneh, who shall see it, and to whom I will give the good land, the land of Hebron through which he walked, and to his children, because he hath followed with integrity the fear of the Lord.

37 לז

אוּף עָלַי הֲוָה רְגַז מִן קֳדָם יְיָ מְטוּלְכוֹן לְמֵימָר אוּף אַנְתְּ לָא תֵיעוּל לְתַמָּן

Against me also was there displeasure before the Lord on your account, saying, Thou too art not to go in thither;

38 לח

יְהוֹשֻׁעַ בַּר נוּן דִּמְשַׁמֵּשׁ בְּבֵית אוּלְפָנָךְ הוּא יֵיעוֹל לְתַמָּן יָתֵיהּ תַּקִּיף אֲרוּם הוּא יַחְסְנִינָהּ יַת יִשְרָאֵל

Jehoshua bar Nun, who ministereth in thy house of instruction, he is to go in thither: strengthen him, for he is to make Israel possess it.

39 לט

וְטַפְלְכוֹן דַּאֲמַרְתּוּן לַעֲדִי יְהוֹן וּבְנֵיכוֹן דְּלָא יָדְעִין יוֹמָא דֵין בֵּין טַב לְבִישׁ הִינוּן יַעֲלוּן לְתַמָּן וּלְהוֹן אֶתְּנִינָהּ וְהִינוּן יֵירְתוּנָהּ

But your little ones, of whom you said, They will be for prey, and your children, who as yet know not between good and evil, they shall go in thither: I will give it to them, and they shall possess it for an inheritance.

40 מ

וְאַתּוּן אִתְפְּנִיוּ לְכוֹן וְטוּלוּ לְמַדְבְּרָא אוֹרַח יַמָא דְסוּף

As for you, turn, and go (back) into the wilderness by the way of the Weedy Sea.

41 מא

וַאֲתֵיבְתּוּן וַאֲמַרְתּוּן לִי חַבְנָא קֳדָם יְיָ אֲנַחְנָא נִיסַק וְנָגִיחַ קְרָב כְּכָל דְּפַקְדָנָא יְיָ אֱלָהָנָא וַאֲסַרְתּוּן גְּבַר יַת מָאנֵי זַיְינֵיהּ וְשָׁרֵיתוּן לְמֵיסוֹק לְטַוְורָא

Then answered you, and said to me, We have sinned before the Lord; we will go up and fight according to all that the Lord our God commanded us. And you girded on every man his arms, and began to ascend the mountain.

42 מב

וַאֲמַר יְיָ לִי אֵימַר לְהוֹן לָא תִסְקוּן וְלָא תְסַדְּרוּן סִדְרֵי קְרָב אֲרוּם לֵית שְׁכִינְתִּי מְהַלְכָא בֵּינֵיכוֹן וְלָא תִיתְבְּרוּן קֳדָם בַּעֲלֵי דְבָבֵיכוֹן

But the Lord said to me, Say to them, Go not up, nor prepare for battle, for My Shekinah goeth not among you; that you be not crushed before your enemies.

43 מג

וּמַלֵלִית לְכוֹן וְלָא קַבֵּילְתּוּן וְסָרֵיבְתּוּן עַל מֵימְרָא דַיְיָ וְאַרְשַׁעְתּוּן וּסְלִיקְתּוּן לְטַוְורָא

And I spake with you, but you would not obey but were rebellious against the Word of the Lord, and did wickedly, and went up to the mountain.

44 מד

וּנְפַק אֱמוֹרָאָה דְיָתִיב בְּטַוְורָא הַהוּא לִקְדָמוּתְכוֹן וּרְדָפוּ יַתְכוֹן הֵיכְמָא דְחַדִדַן וְחַיְישַׁן אוּרְעֲיָיתָא וּמְחוֹ יַתְכוֹן בְּגַבְלָא עַד חָרְמָה

And the Amoraah who dwelt in that mountain came out to meet you, and pursued you, as they drive away and destroy hornets, and smote you from Gebal unto Hormah.

45 מה

וְתֵיבְתּוּן וּבְכִיתוּן קֳדָם יְיָ וְלָא קַבֵּיל יְיָ צְלוּתְכוֹן וְלָא אָצִית לְמִילֵיכוֹן

And you returned, and wept before the Lord: but the Lord would not receive your prayers, nor hearken to your words.

46 מו

וִיתֵיבְתּוּן בִּרְקַם יוֹמִין סַגִּיאִין כְּיוֹמַיָא דִיתֵיבְתּוּן

So you abode in Rekem many days, according to the days that you abode.
