Yakob Guan Fi Laban Nkyɛn

1Yakob tee sɛ Laban mmabarima no reka se, “Yakob afa yɛn agya ho nneɛma nyinaa. Nʼahonya nyinaa fi yɛn agya nneɛma a wafa no.” 2Yakob huu sɛ afei de, Laban ntew nʼanim nkyerɛ no sɛ kan no.

3Na Awurade ka kyerɛɛ Yakob se, “San kɔ wʼabusuafo ne wo nkurɔfo asase so, na medi wʼakyi.”

4Enti Yakob soma ma wɔkɔfrɛɛ ne yerenom Rahel ne Lea se wɔmmra ne nkyɛn wɔ sare no so, faako a ɔne ne nguankuw no wɔ no. 5Wɔbae no, ɔka kyerɛɛ wɔn se, “Mahu sɛ afei de, mo agya Laban anim nyɛ me fɛ sɛ kan no, nanso Onyankopɔn a mʼagya Isak som no no ka me ho. 6Munim sɛ mayi me yam de mʼahoɔden nyinaa ayɛ adwuma ama mo agya; 7nanso mo agya nam asisi kwan so asesa mʼakatua mu mpɛn du. Nanso eyi nyinaa akyi no, Onyankopɔn amma no kwan amma wanyɛ me bɔne. 8Sɛ ɔka se, ‘Mmoa a wɔn ho yɛ ntokontrama no bɛyɛ wʼakatua,’ na sɛ mmoa no wo a, na wɔawo mma a wɔn ho yɛ ntokontrama. Sɛ ɔka se, ‘Mmoa a wɔn ho yɛ nsensanee no bɛyɛ wʼakatua’ a, na wɔawowo mma a wɔn ho yɛ nsensanee. 9Ɔkwan a Onyankopɔn nam so agye mo agya nsam nyɛmmoa no de wɔn ama me ama mayɛ ɔdefo no ne no.

10“Eduu bere a mmoa no hyia mu no, mesoo dae huu sɛ adwennini a wɔforo nguanbere no ho yɛ ntokontrama, nsensanee anaa nsisimu. 11Onyankopɔn bɔfo frɛɛ me wɔ dae no mu ka kyerɛɛ me se, ‘Yakob!’ Na migyee so se, ‘Me ni!’ 12Na ɔsoro abɔfo no ka kyerɛɛ me se, ‘Hwɛ na hu sɛ adwennini a wɔforo nguanbere no nyinaa ho yɛ nsensanee, ntokontrama anaa nsisimu, na mahu ɔkwan a Laban de wo fa so no nyinaa. 13Mene Onyankopɔn a miyii me ho adi kyerɛɛ wo wɔ Bet-El, faako a wode ɔbo sii hɔ, hwiee ngo guu so, som me, hyɛɛ me bɔ sɛ, wobɛsom me no. Afei, tu fi saa asase yi so ntɛm ara, na san kɔ asase a wɔwoo wo wɔ so no so.’ ”

14Na Rahel ne Lea bisae se, “Enti saa tebea a yɛwɔ mu yi, yɛwɔ kyɛfa bi wɔ yɛn agya agyapade mu ana? 15Yɛn agya mfa yɛn sɛ yɛyɛ ahɔho? Watɔn yɛn, na yɛn ti sika a ogyee no nso, wadi. 16Ɛyɛ nokware turodoo sɛ yɛn agya ahode a Onyankopɔn gyei no nyinaa yɛ yɛn ne yɛn mma dea. Enti biribiara a Onyankopɔn aka akyerɛ wo sɛ yɛ no, yɛ.”

17Na Yakob de ne mma ne ne yerenom tenatenaa yoma so. 18Ɔkaa ne mmoa nyinaa, agyapade a wanya nyinaa ne mmoa a onyaa wɔ Paddan-Aram nyinaa dii nʼanim sɛ, ɔrekɔ nʼagya Isak nkyɛn wɔ Kanaan asase so.

19Bere a Laban kɔɔ wuram sɛ ɔrekotwitwa ne nguan ho nwi no, Rahel faa nʼakyi kowiaa nʼagya fi abosom. 20Yakob daadaa Aramni Laban a wamma wanhu sɛ ɔreguan. 21Yakob de nʼahode nyinaa guanee. Otwaa Asubɔnten Eufrate, de nʼani kyerɛɛ bepɔw asase Gilead no so.

Laban Tiw Yakob

22Yakob ne nʼabusuafo guanee no, nnansa akyi ansa na Laban tee sɛ wɔkɔ. 23Laban faa ne fifo kaa ne ho, de anibere tiw Yakob. Nnanson akyi ansa na ɔkɔtoo Yakob ne ne nkurɔfo no wɔ bepɔw Gilead so. 24Saa da no ara anadwo, Onyankopɔn yii ne ho adi wɔ dae mu kyerɛɛ Aramni Laban. Ɔka kyerɛɛ no wɔ dae no mu se, “Hwɛ yiye na woankɔka asɛm biara; sɛ ɛyɛ asɛm pa anaa asɛmmɔne ankyerɛ Yakob.”

25Bere a Laban ne ne fifo kɔtoo Yakob no, na Yakob asisi ne ntamadan wɔ bepɔw Gilead atifi. Laban ne ne fifo no nso sisii wɔn ntamadan wɔ hɔ. 26Na Laban kɔɔ Yakob nkyɛn kobisaa no se, “Asɛm bɛn na wode adi me yi? Woadaadaa me, akyekyere me mmabea de wɔn reguan te sɛ nnommumfo. 27Adɛn nti na wodaadaa me, na wuguan fii me nkyɛn a woankra? Sɛ wokraa me a, anka mɛto wo pon, na mama nnipa abɛbɔ sanku, ato nnwom wɔ aponto no ase, de agya wo kwan. 28Woamma mankyiakyia me nenanom ne me mmabea yi nsam annya wɔn kwan mpo. Woadi nkwaseasɛm. 29Mewɔ tumi sɛ anka meyɛ wo bɔne, nanso nnɛra anadwo, Onyankopɔn a wo agya som no no ka kyerɛɛ me wɔ dae mu se, ‘Hwɛ yiye na woanka asɛm biara, sɛ ɛyɛ asɛm pa anaa asɛmmɔne ankyerɛ Yakob.’ 30Esiane sɛ wʼani agyina wʼagya fi nti, na ɛsɛ sɛ wokɔ ara. Na adɛn nti na wuwiaa mʼabosom de kaa wo nneɛma ho?”

31Yakob buaa Laban se, “Na misuro. Na ɛyɛ me sɛ wode tumi begye wo mmabea no afi me nsam. 32Nanso obiara a wubehu wʼabosom no wɔ ne nkyɛn no, ɔsɛ owu. Wʼankasa hwehwɛ sɛ wubehu biribiara a ɛyɛ wo de wɔ me nneɛma yi mu wɔ yɛn nuanom yi anim. Sɛ wuhu biribiara a ɛyɛ wo de a, fa wʼade.” Bere a Yakob kaa saa asɛm yi no, na onnim sɛ Rahel na wawia nʼagya Laban abosom no.

33Ɛno nti, Laban kɔɔ Yakob, Lea, ne nʼasomfo Bilha ne Silpa ntamadan mu kɔhwehwɛɛ hɔ, nanso wanhu biribiara. Afei, okowuraa Rahel ntamadan mu. 34Na Rahel awia abosom no de ahyehyɛ ne yoma no agua ase, atena so. Enti Laban kɔhwehwɛɛ nneɛma a ɛwɔ Rahel ntamadan no nyinaa mu, nanso wanhu abosom no.

35Rahel ka kyerɛɛ nʼagya se, “Agya, mma wo bo mfuw me sɛ mete hɔ wɔ wʼanim na mennsɔre nnyina hɔ, makɔ afikyiri.” Enti Laban toaa so hwehwɛɛ abosom no ara, nanso wanhu.

36Ɛyɛɛ saa no, Yakob bo fuw Laban yiye, bisaa no se, “Bɔne bɛn na mayɛ? Amumɔyɛsɛm bɛn na madi a ɛno nti, woataa me ara yi?” 37Wohwehwɛɛ me nneɛma nyinaa mu yi, dɛn ade na wuhuu a ɛyɛ wo ne wo fifo de? Nea wuhuu biara no, fa bɛto gua wɔ me nuanom ne wo nuanom a wɔahyia ha yi nyinaa anim, na wɔnkyerɛ nea ɛyɛ ne de.

38“Mfirihyia aduonu a wo ne me tenae, wo nguan ne wo mmirekyi abere no ampɔmpɔn, na mankum wʼadwennini yi bi amfi wo nguankuw yi mu anwe da. 39Mamfa wʼaboa biara a akekaboa bi atetew ne mu ammrɛ wo; wɔn a mmoa kum wɔn no, mʼankasa mehyɛɛ anan mu. Afei sɛ ɛba sɛ wowia wo mmoa no bi, anadwo anaa awia a, woma mitua ka. 40Eyi ne tebea a na mewɔ mu: Meyɛɛ wʼadwuma awia maa owia hyee me ne anadwo maa awɔw dee me; nam so maa nna yera fii mʼaniwa mu. 41Tebea a na mewɔ mu mfirihyia aduonu a metenaa wo nkyɛn no nyinaa ni.

Nanso Onyankopɔn huu mʼamanehunu ne me nsa ano adwuma nti na nnɛra anadwo ɔkaa wʼanim no.”

Laban Ne Yakob Yɛ Apam

43Laban buaa Yakob se, “Mmea no yɛ me mmabea, mmofra no nso yɛ me nenanom, na nguankuw no nso yɛ me nguankuw. Nneɛma a wuhu yi nyinaa yɛ me de. Ɛbɛyɛ dɛn na matumi ayɛ mʼankasa me mmabea ne me nenanom bɔne? 44Afei, bra na me ne wo nyɛ apam a ebedi me ne wo ntam adanse. Saa apam no so na yebedi wɔ yɛn asetena nyinaa mu.”

45Enti Yakob faa ɔbo de sii hɔ yɛɛ nkaedum. 46Yakob kyerɛɛ ne nuanom no se, “Montase abo!” Enti wɔtasee abo boaa ano, na wɔn nyinaa tenaa ho didii. 47Laban frɛɛ abo kuw no Yegar-Sahaduta a ne nkyerɛase ne Adanse Kuw. Yakob nso frɛɛ saa abo kuw no Gal-Ed, a ne nkyerɛase ne Adanse Kuw saa ara.

48Laban kae se, “Abo Kuw yi na edi me ne wo ntam adanse nnɛ!” Ɛno nti na wɔfrɛ no Gal-Ed no. 49Na wɔsan frɛ abo nkaedum no nso bio sɛ, “Mispa” efisɛ Laban kae se, “Awurade mmoa yɛn, na sɛ yɛn ntam tetew mpo a, yɛn mu biara bedi saa apam yi so. 50Sɛ woanhwɛ me mmabea yi yiye anaasɛ woware mmea foforo ka me mmabea yi ho a, ɛwɔ mu sɛ merenhu, nanso Onyankopɔn de, obehu.”

51Laban san ka kyerɛɛ Yakob se, “Abo Kuw yi ni. Nkaedum a mede asi me ne wo ntam no nso ni. 52Abo Kuw yi, ne nkaedum yi nyɛ adanse sɛ, me Laban, merentra saa Abo Kuw yi ne nkaedum yi mma baabi a wowɔ mmɛtoa wo.

Laban som anyame bebree. Nyankopɔn, wɔn agyanom Nyankopɔn nyɛ otemmufo wɔ me ne wo ntam.”

Enti Yakob de nʼagya Isak Nyankopɔn ho suro kaa ntam sɛ, ɔrentra ɔhye no. 54Yakob bɔɔ Onyankopɔn afɔre wɔ bepɔw no atifi, na ohyiahyiaa ne nnamfonom ma wobedidii. Ɛno akyi no, wɔdaa ne nkyɛn wɔ bepɔw no so.

Olubereberye 31:1-55

Yakobo Ateekateeka Okudda Ewaabwe

1Awo Yakobo n’awulira nga batabani ba Labbaani bagamba nti, “Yakobo atutte ebyo byonna ebyali ebya kitaffe, era mu byali ebya kitaffe mw’aggye obugagga buno bwonna.” 2Era Yakobo n’alaba nga Labbaani takyamufaako nga bwe yali olubereberye.

331:3 a nny 13; Lub 32:9 b Lub 21:22; 26:3; 28:15Awo Mukama n’agamba Yakobo nti, “Ddayo mu nsi ya bajjajjaabo, mu bantu bo, era nnaabeeranga naawe.” 4Awo Yakobo kwe kutumya Laakeeri ne Leeya ku ttale gye baalundiranga ekisibo. 531:5 Lub 21:22; 26:3Bwe baatuuka n’abagamba nti, “Ndaba nga kitammwe takyanfaako nga bwe yakolanga olubereberye, naye Katonda wa kitange abadde nange. 631:6 Lub 30:29Mumanyi bwe naweerea kitammwe n’amaanyi gange gonna. 731:7 a nny 41; Yob 19:3 b Yob 19:52; Zab 37:28; 105:14Kyokka ye kitammwe yandyazaamanya n’akyusa empeera yange n’agikendeeza emirundi kkumi; wabula Katonda n’atamukkiriza kundeetako kabi. 831:8 Lub 30:32Kale bwe yagambanga nti, ‘Eza bugondogondo ze zinaabanga ezizo ekisibo kyonna ne kizaala eza bugondogondo, era bwe yayogeranga nti eza biwuuga ze zinaabanga ezizo ekisibo kyonna ne kizaala eza biwuuga.’ 931:9 nny 1, 16; Lub 30:42Bw’atyo Katonda aggye ku kitammwe ensolo ze n’azimpa.

10“Mu kiseera ensolo mwe ziwakira, naloota nga nnyimusa amaaso gange nga ndaba embuzi ennume nga zirinyira enkazi eza biwuuga n’eza bugondogondo n’eza kiweewoweewo. 1131:11 Lub 16:7; 48:16Ne mu kirooto ekyo malayika wa Katonda n’ampita nti, ‘Yakobo.’ Ne nziramu nti, ‘Nze nzuuno.’ 1231:12 Kuv 3:7N’aŋŋamba nti, ‘Yimusa amaaso go olabe, embuzi zonna ezirinnyira ekisibo bwe ziri eza biwuuga, eza bugondogondo n’eza kiweewoweewo; kubanga ndabye ebyo byonna Labbaani by’akukoze. 1331:13 a Lub 28:10-22 b nny 3; Lub 32:9Nze Katonda w’e Beseri gye wafukira amafuta ku jjinja lye wasimba, gye weeyamira obweyamo. Kale kaakano golokoka ove mu nsi muno, oddeyo mu nsi gye wazaalirwa.’ ”

14Awo Laakeeri ne Leeya ne bamuddamu nti, “Ekyo kituufu kubanga tetulina mugabo, mu busika bwa kitaffe. 1531:15 Lub 29:20Era atutwala ng’abatali ba mu nnyumba ye. Kubanga yatutunda, era ebyatuvaamu bya badde akozesa. 16Eby’obugagga byonna Katonda bya muggyeko, bifuuse byaffe n’abaana baffe. Kale kaakano buli Katonda ky’akugambye okukola kikole.”

Yakobo Adduka Okuva ku Labbaani

17Awo Yakobo n’agolokoka, n’ateeka batabani be ne bakazi be ku ŋŋamira; 1831:18 a Lub 35:27 b Lub 10:19n’agoba ente ze zonna, n’ebisolo bye ebirala byonna bye yafuna: obugagga bwe bwonna bwe yafunira mu Padanalaamu, agende mu nsi ya Kanani eri kitaawe Isaaka.

1931:19 nny 30, 32, 34-35; Lub 35:2; Bal 17:5; 1Sa 19:13; Kos 3:4Labbaani yali agenze kusala byoya ku ndiga ze, Laakeeri n’abba bakatonda b’omu nnyumba ya Labbaani. 2031:20 a Lub 27:36 b nny 27Yakobo n’adduka ku Labbaani Omusuuli, era teyamutegeeza nti amuvaako agende. 2131:21 Lub 37:25Yadduka ne byonna bye yalina, n’agolokoka n’asomoka omugga Fulaati, n’ayolekera Giriyaadi ensi ey’ensozi.

22Ku lunaku olwokusatu Labbaani bwe yategeezebwa nti Yakobo yamuddukako, 23Labbaani n’atwala basajja be, n’awondera Yakobo okumala ennaku musanvu, mu Giriyaadi ensi ey’ensozi. 2431:24 a Lub 20:3; Yob 33:15 b Lub 24:50Naye Katonda n’ajjira Labbaani, Omusuuli, mu kirooto, ekiro, n’amugamba nti, “Weegendereze, toyogera na Yakobo kigambo kyonna, ekirungi oba ekibi.”

25Awo Labbaani n’atuuka ku Yakobo, eyali akubye eweema ye mu nsi ey’ensozi, Labbaani ne basajja be nabo ne basiisira mu nsi ey’ensozi eya Giriyaadi. 2631:26 a Lub 27:36 b 1Sa 30:2-3Labbaani n’agamba Yakobo nti, “Okoze ki, okuntwalako bawala bange mu kyama ne babanga abanyage? 2731:27 a Kuv 15:20 b Lub 4:21Kiki ekyakuddusa mu kyama nga tombuuliddeko, ndyoke, nkusibule mu kinyumu: n’ennyimba, n’ebitaasa, n’ennanga. 2831:28 nny 55Kale lwaki tewaŋŋanya na kugwa mu kifuba bazzukulu bange ne bawala bange okubasiibula? Ekyo kye wakola si kya buntubulamu. 2931:29 a nny 7 b nny 53Mbadde nsobola okukukola akabi, wabula Katonda wa kitaawo yayogedde nange ekiro kino, n’aŋŋamba nti, ‘Weegendereze oleme okwogera ne Yakobo ekigambo kyonna, ekirungi oba ekibi.’ 3031:30 nny 19; Bal 18:24Ne kaakano ogenda kubanga wayagala nnyo okuddayo mu nnyumba ya kitaawo; naye wabbira ki bakatonda bange?”

31Yakobo n’addamu Labbaani nti, “Natya, kubanga n’alowooza nti oyinza okunnyagako bawala bo. 3231:32 Lub 44:9Naye gw’onoosanga ne bakatonda bo taabe mulamu; waakufa. Mu maaso ga bantu baffe bano, ndaga ekikyo kye nnina okitwale.” Yakobo teyamanya nti Laakeeri abbye bakatonda ba Labbaani.

33Labbaani n’ayingira mu weema ya Yakobo ne mu weema ya Leeya, ne mu weema ey’abaweereza bombi; naye n’atalaba bakatonda be. N’ava mu weema ya Leeya, n’ayingira mu ya Laakeeri. 3431:34 nny 37; Lub 44:12Laakeeri yali atutte bakatonda ba Labbaani, n’abateeka ku matandiiko g’eŋŋamira, n’abatuulako. Labbaani n’ayaza weema yonna naye n’atabalabamu.

3531:35 Kuv 20:12; Lv 19:3, 32Laakeeri n’agamba kitaawe nti, “Mukama wange aleme okusunguwala kubanga sisobola kuyimirira w’oli kubanga ndi mu mpisa y’abakazi.” Labbaani n’anoonya naye n’atalaba bakatonda be. 36Awo Yakobo n’alyoka ajjula obusungu ne yeejuumulira Labbaani, n’amugamba nti, “Nzizizza musango ki? Kibi ki kye nnina, olyoke ongoberere n’obukaali butyo? 3731:37 nny 23Bw’oyazizza mu bintu byange, kikyo ki ky’osanzemu? Kiteeke wano wakati mu maaso g’abantu bange n’ababo, balyoke basalewo omusobya ku fembi.

38“Emyaka gino gyonna amakumi abiri gye mbadde naawe, endiga zo ne mbuzi zo tezisowolanga, era siryanga ndiga mu kisibo kyo. 3931:39 Kuv 22:13Eyo eyataagulwanga ensolo enkambwe ey’omu nsiko saagikuleeteranga, nze nafiirwanga, waginsabanga, wadde eyo eyabbibwanga ekiro oba emisana nayo yabalirwanga ku nze. 40Ekyo ne kindeetera essana okunzigwerangako, n’okubeeranga mu mpewo ekiro, n’otulo ne tumbula. 4131:41 a Lub 29:30 b nny 7Emyaka gino amakumi abiri mbadde mu nnyumba yo; n’akuweereza emyaka kkumi n’ena olwa bawala bo bombi, ate ne nkuweereza emyaka mukaaga mu kisibo kyo, kyokka okyusizza empeera yange emirundi kkumi. 4231:42 a nny 5; Kuv 3:15; 1By 12:17 b Kuv 3:53; Is 8:13 c Zab 124:1-2 d Lub 29:32Singa Katonda wa kitange, era Katonda wa Ibulayimu, Katonda Entiisa ya Isaaka teyali ku lwange, mazima ddala wandinsiibudde ngalo nsa! Katonda yalabye okubonaabona n’okutegana kwange, kyeyavudde akunenya ekiro.”

Endagaano wakati wa Yakobo ne Labbaani

43Awo Labbaani n’addamu Yakobo nti, “Bano bawala bange, n’abaana baabwe bazzukulu bange, n’ebisibo, bisibo byange era ne byonna byolaba byange. Naye bawala bange n’abaana baabwe be bazadde, nnyinza kubakolera ki leero? 4431:44 a Lub 21:27; 26:28 b Yos 24:27Kale jjangu tukole endagaano gwe nange, ebeere omujulirwa wakati wo nange.” 4531:45 Lub 28:18Awo Yakobo n’addira ejjinja n’alisimba ng’empagi. 46N’agamba abantu be nti, “Mukuŋŋaanye amayinja.” Ne bagakuŋŋaanya ne bagatuuma entuumo, ne baliira31:46 Endagaano zaakakasibwanga na kijjulo. awo awali entuumo. 47Labbaani entuumu n’agiyita Yegalusakadusa, ye Yakobo n’agiyita Galeedi.

48Labbaani n’agamba nti, “Entuumo eno ye mujulirwa wakati wo nange leero.” Kyeyava agiyita Galeedi, 4931:49 Bal 11:29; 1Sa 7:5-6n’empagi n’agiyita Mizupa, kubanga yayogera nti, “Mukama atunulenga wakati wo nange, nga twawukanye omu okuva ku munne. 5031:50 Yer 29:23; 42:5Bw’oliyisa obubi bawala bange, oba bw’olibawasizaako abakazi abalala, newaakubadde nga tewali muntu n’omu wakati waffe, ojjukire nti Katonda ye mujulirwa wakati wo nange.”

5131:51 Lub 28:18Awo Labbaani n’agamba Yakobo nti, “Laba entuumu eno n’empagi bye ntadde wakati wo nange. 5231:52 a Lub 21:30 b nny 7; Lub 26:29Entuumu eno ye mujulirwa era n’empagi nayo mujulirwa nga nze sirisukka ntuumu eno na mpagi eno okukukola akabi. 5331:53 a Lub 28:13 b Lub 16:5 c Lub 21:23, 27 d nny 42Katonda wa Ibulayimu, era Katonda wa Nakoli,31:53 Nakoli yali muganda wa Ibulayimu (11:26) ate era jjajja wa Labbaani (24:24, 29). Labbaani yasinzanga bakatonda bangi. Katonda wa kitaabwe atulamule.”

Yakobo naye n’alayirira bw’atyo Katonda, Entiisa ya kitaawe Isaaka. 54Yakobo n’awaayo ssaddaaka ku lusozi; n’ayita abantu be okulya; ne balya, ne basula ku lusozi ekiro ekyo.

5531:55 a nny 28 b Lub 18:33; 30:25Ku makya ennyo Labbaani n’agolokoka n’asiibula bazzukulu be ne bawala be ng’abagwa mu kifuba; n’abawa omukisa, n’addayo ewuwe.
