Esteer 4 Somali Bible (SOM)
Mordekay Oo Ku Qancay Caawimaddii Esteer
4 Haddaba markii Mordekay ogaaday wixii la sameeyey oo dhan ayuu dharkiisii jeexjeexay, dhar joonyad ahna wuu xidhay oo dambas ismariyey, markaasuu magaalada dhex galay oo oohin dheer oo qadhaadh ku qayliyey. 2 Wuxuuna hor yimid boqorka iriddiisa; waayo, ninna iridda boqorka ma geli karayn isagoo dhar joonyad ah qaba. 3 Oo gobol kasta oo qaynuunkii iyo amarkii boqorku gaadhayba waxaa Yuhuuddii ka dhex dhacday baroor weyn, iyo soon, iyo oohin, iyo qaylo; kuwo badanuna dambas bay ku jiifeen iyagoo dhar joonyad ah qaba. 4 Markaasaa Esteer waxaa u yimid oo xaalkaas u soo sheegay gabdhaheedii iyo midiidinnadeedii; kolkaasay boqoraddii aad iyo aad u murugootay; oo Mordekay ayay u sii dirtay dhar uu xidho, waxayna u sheegtay inuu dharkiisii joonyadda ahaa iska furo; laakiinse dharkii ma uu qaadan. 5 Markaasaa Esteer waxay u yeedhay Hatag oo boqorka midiidinnadiisa ka mid ahaa oo uu boqorku u doortay inuu u adeego, oo waxay isagii ku amartay inuu Mordekay u tago oo uu soo ogaado bal waxa xaalkanu ahaa, iyo wuxuu u dhacayba. 6 Sidaas daraaddeed Hatag wuxuu Mordekay ugu tegey magaalada bannaankeedii ka soo hor jeeday boqorka iriddiisa. 7 Markaasaa Mordekay wuxuu isagii u sheegay dhammaan wixii isaga ku dhacay, iyo lacagtii uu Haamaan u ballanqaaday inuu siinayo boqorka khasnadihiisa in Yuhuudda la baabbi'iyo aawadeed. 8 Oo weliba wuxuu isagii u dhiibay naqilka warqaddii oo amarku ku qornaa oo Shuushan lagu faafiyey si Yuhuudda loo wada baabbi'iyo, wuxuuna taas u siiyey inuu Esteer tuso oo uu iyada u warramo, oo wuxuu iyada ku amray inay boqorka u gasho, oo ay barido oo ay isaga hortiisa wax ka weyddiisato dadkeeda aawadiis. 9 Kolkaasaa Hatag yimid oo wuxuu Esteer u sheegay erayadii Mordekay. 10 Dabadeedna Esteer baa la hadashay Hatag oo waxay farriin ugu sii dhiibtay Mordekay oo ku tidhi, 11 Boqorka addoommadiisa oo dhan iyo dadka boqorka gobolladiisa deggan oo dhammu way wada og yihiin in ku alla kii, isagoo aan loo yeedhin, boqorka ugu soo gala barxadda dhexe, ama nin ha ahaado ama naag ha ahaatee, qaynuun baa loo hayaa, waana in isaga la dilo, haddaan boqorku usha dahabka ah fidin, si uu u noolaado aawadeed; laakiinse aniga la iima yeedhin inaan boqorka u soo galo intii soddon maalmood ah. 12 Kolkaasaa Mordekay loo soo sheegay Esteer erayadeedii. 13 Markaasuu Mordekay iyagii jawaab ugu sii dhiibay Esteer, oo wuxuu ku yidhi, Ha moodin inaad adiga qudhaadu guriga boqorka ku baxsan doontid iyadoo aanay Yuhuudda ka baxsan. 14 Waayo, haddaad wakhtigan iska aamustid, waxaa Yuhuudda meel kale uga kici doona furasho iyo samatabbax, laakiinse adiga iyo reerka aabbahaaba waad halligmi doontaan. Bal yaase garanaya inaad wakhtigan oo kale daraaddiis boqortooyada u soo gashay? 15 Markaasaa Esteer waxay iyaga u sheegtay inay Mordekay jawaab ku celiyaan, oo waxay ku tidhi, 16 Tag, oo soo wada ururi Yuhuudda Shuushan joogta oo dhan, oo ii sooma, oo intii saddex maalmood ah, habeen iyo maalin toona, waxba ha cunina, waxna ha cabbina; oo aniga iyo gabdhahayguna sidaas oo kalaan u soomaynaa; oo kolkaasaan boqorka u gelayaa, taasoo aan sharciga waafaqsanayn; oo haddii aan halligmona, waan halligmayaa. 17 Markaasuu Mordekay iska tegey oo sameeyey wax alla wixii Esteer ku amartay oo dhan.
Esther 4 New International Version (NIV)
Mordecai Persuades Esther to Help
4 When Mordecai learned of all that had been done, he tore his clothes, put on sackcloth and ashes, and went out into the city, wailing loudly and bitterly. 2 But he went only as far as the king’s gate, because no one clothed in sackcloth was allowed to enter it. 3 In every province to which the edict and order of the king came, there was great mourning among the Jews, with fasting, weeping and wailing. Many lay in sackcloth and ashes.
4 When Esther’s eunuchs and female attendants came and told her about Mordecai, she was in great distress. She sent clothes for him to put on instead of his sackcloth, but he would not accept them. 5 Then Esther summoned Hathak, one of the king’s eunuchs assigned to attend her, and ordered him to find out what was troubling Mordecai and why.
6 So Hathak went out to Mordecai in the open square of the city in front of the king’s gate. 7 Mordecai told him everything that had happened to him, including the exact amount of money Haman had promised to pay into the royal treasury for the destruction of the Jews. 8 He also gave him a copy of the text of the edict for their annihilation, which had been published in Susa, to show to Esther and explain it to her, and he told him to instruct her to go into the king’s presence to beg for mercy and plead with him for her people.
9 Hathak went back and reported to Esther what Mordecai had said. 10 Then she instructed him to say to Mordecai, 11 “All the king’s officials and the people of the royal provinces know that for any man or woman who approaches the king in the inner court without being summoned the king has but one law: that they be put to death unless the king extends the gold scepter to them and spares their lives. But thirty days have passed since I was called to go to the king.”
12 When Esther’s words were reported to Mordecai, 13 he sent back this answer: “Do not think that because you are in the king’s house you alone of all the Jews will escape. 14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
15 Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: 16 “Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.”
17 So Mordecai went away and carried out all of Esther’s instructions.
