Deuteronomy 20

1 ጠላቶችህን ለመውጋት በወጣህ ጊዜ፥ ፈረሶችንና ሰረገሎችን ሕዝቡንም ከአንተ ይልቅ በዝተው ባየህ ጊዜ፥ ከግብፅ አገር ያወጣህ አምላክህ እግዚአብሔር ከአንተ ጋር ነውና አትፍራቸው።

1 When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the Lord thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

2 ወደ ሰልፍም በቀረባችሁ ጊዜ ካህኑ ይቅረብ ለሕዝቡም እንዲህ ብሎ ይንገራቸው።

2 And it shall be, when ye are come nigh unto the battle, that the priest shall approach and speak unto the people,

3 እስራኤል ሆይ፥ ስሙ ዛሬ ጠላቶቻችሁን ለመውጋት ትቀርባላችሁ ልባችሁ አይታወክ፥ አትፍሩ፥ አትንቀጥቀጡ፥ በፊታቸውም አትደንግጡ

3 And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them;

4 ከእናንተ ጋር የሚሄድ፥ ያድናችሁም ዘንድ ጠላቶቻችሁን ስለ እናንተ የሚወጋ አምላካችሁ እግዚአብሔር ነውና።

4 For the Lord your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.

5 አለቆችም ለሕዝቡ እንዲህ ብለው ይናገሩ። አዲስ ቤት ሠርቶ ያላስመረቀ ሰው ቢኖር በሰልፍ እንዳይሞት ሌላም ሰው እንዳያስመርቀው ወደ ቤቱ ተመልሶ ይሂድ።

5 And the officers shall speak unto the people, saying, What man is there that hath built a new house, and hath not dedicated it? let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle, and another man dedicate it.

6 ወይንም ተክሎ ፍሬውንም ያልበላ ሰው ቢኖር በሰልፍ እንዳይሞት ሌላም ሰው ፍሬውን እንዳይበላ ወደ ቤቱ ተመልሶ ይሂድ።

6 And what man is he that hath planted a vineyard, and hath not yet eaten of it? let him also go and return unto his house, lest he die in the battle, and another man eat of it.

7 ሚስትም አጭቶ ያላገባትም ሰው ቢኖር በሰልፍ እንዳይሞት ሌላም ሰው እንዳያገባት ወደ ቤቱ ተመልሶ ይሂድ።

7 And what man is there that hath betrothed a wife, and hath not taken her? let him go and return unto his house, lest he die in the battle, and another man take her.

8 አለቆቹም ደግሞ ጨምረው። ማንም ፈሪና ድንጉጥ ሰው ቢሆን እርሱ ፈርቶ የወንድሞቹን ልብ ደግሞ እንዳያስፈራ ወደ ቤቱ ተመልሶ ይሂድ ብለው ለሕዝቡ ይናገሩ።

8 And the officers shall speak further unto the people, and they shall say, What man is there that is fearful and fainthearted? let him go and return unto his house, lest his brethren’s heart faint as well as his heart.

9 አለቆቹም ለሕዝቡ ነግረው በጨረሱ ጊዜ በየጭፍራው በሕዝቡ ላይ የጦር አለቆችን ይሹሙ።

9 And it shall be, when the officers have made an end of speaking unto the people, that they shall make captains of the armies to lead the people.

10 ለመዋጋት ወደ አንዲት ከተማ በደረስህ ጊዜ አስቀድመህ በዕርቅ ቃል ጥራቸው።

10 When thou comest nigh unto a city to fight against it, then proclaim peace unto it.

11 የዕርቅ ቃልም ቢመልሱልህ ደጅም ቢከፍቱልህ፥ በከተማ ውስጥ ያለው ሕዝብ ሁሉ ይገብሩልህ ያገልግሉህም።

11 And it shall be, if it make thee answer of peace, and open unto thee, then it shall be, that all the people that is found therein shall be tributaries unto thee, and they shall serve thee.

12 የዕርቅ ቃልም ባይመልሱልህ ከአንተም ጋር መዋጋት ቢወድዱ፥ አንተ ከተማይቱን ትከብባለህ ታስጨንቃትማለህ

12 And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war against thee, then thou shalt besiege it:

13 አምላክህም እግዚአብሔር በእጅህ አሳልፎ በሰጣት ጊዜ፥ በእርስዋ ያሉትን ወንዶች ሁሉ በሰይፍ ስለት ትገድላቸዋለህ

13 And when the Lord thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword:

14 ነገር ግን ሴቶቹንና ሕፃናትን እንስሶቹንም በከተማይቱም ያለውን ምርኮ ሁሉ በዝብዘህ ለአንተ ትወስዳለህ አምላክህም እግዚአብሔር የሚሰጥህን የጠላቶችህን ምርኮ ትበላለህ።

14 But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the Lord thy God hath given thee.

15 የእነዚህ አሕዛብ ከተሞች ባይደሉት ከአንተ እጅግ በራቁት ከተሞች ሁሉ እንዲሁ ታደርጋለህ።

15 Thus shalt thou do unto all the cities which are very far off from thee, which are not of the cities of these nations.

16 ነገር ግን አምላክህ እግዚአብሔር ርስት አድርጎ ከሚሰጥህ ከእነዚህ አሕዛብ ከተሞች ምንም ነፍስ አታድንም።

16 But of the cities of these people, which the Lord thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth:

17-18 ነገር ግን ለአማልክቶቻቸው ያደረጉትን ርኵሰት ሁሉ ታደርጉ ዘንድ እንዳያስተምሩአችሁ፥ በአምላካችሁም በእግዚአብሔር ላይ ኃጢአት እንዳትሠሩ፥ አምላክህ እግዚአብሔር እንዳዘዘህ ኬጢያዊውን አሞራዊውንም ከነዓናዊውንም ፌርዛዊውንም ኤዊያዊውንም ኢያቡሳዊውንም ፈጽመህ ታጠፋቸዋለህ።

17 But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee:
18 That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the Lord your God.

19 ከተማይቱን ለመውሰድ በመውጋት ብዙ ቀን ከብበህ ባስጨነቅሃት ጊዜ፥ ምሳርህን አንሥተህ ዛፎችዋን አትቍረጥ ከእነርሱ ትበላለህና አትቍረጣቸው ከብበህ የምታጠፋው የምድር ዛፍ ሰው መሆኑ ነውን?

19 When thou shalt besiege a city a long time, in making war against it to take it, thou shalt not destroy the trees thereof by forcing an axe against them: for thou mayest eat of them, and thou shalt not cut them down (for the tree of the field is man’s life) to employ them in the siege:

20 ለመብል የማይሆኑትን የምታውቃቸውን ዛፎች ታጠፋቸዋለህ፥ ትቈርጣቸውማለህ እስክታሸንፋትም ድረስ በምትዋጋህ ከተማ ላይ ምሽግ ትመሽጋለህ።

20 Only the trees which thou knowest that they be not trees for meat, thou shalt destroy and cut them down; and thou shalt build bulwarks against the city that maketh war with thee, until it be subdued.
