Yakob Hyira Efraim Ne Manase

1Mmere bi akyi no, wɔka kyerɛɛ Yosef se, “Wʼagya yare.” Enti Yosef faa ne mmabarima baanu, Efraim ne Manase kaa ne ho kɔsraa no. 2Bere a wɔbɔɔ Yakob amanneɛ se, “Wo ba Yosef aba wo nkyɛn rebɛsra wo” no, Yakob miaa nʼani sɔre tenaa ne mpa so.

3Yakob ka kyerɛɛ Yosef se, “Otumfo Nyankopɔn yii ne ho adi kyerɛɛ me wɔ Lus a ɛwɔ Kanaan asase so. Ɛhɔ na ohyiraa me, 4ka kyerɛɛ me se, ‘Mɛma woawo, ama wʼase afɛe. Mɛma wʼasefo ayɛ ɔman kɛse. Mede saa asase yi bɛma wʼasefo afebɔɔ sɛ wɔn agyapade.’

5“Ɛno nti, mede wo mma baanu a wɔwoo wɔn maa wo ansa na mereba wo nkyɛn wɔ Misraim asase so ha no bɛka me mma no ho. Efraim ne Manase bɛka me mma ho, sɛnea Ruben ne Simeon yɛ me mma no. 6Mma foforo biara a wobɛwo wɔn wɔ Efraim ne Manase akyi no na wɔbɛyɛ wo de. Wɔde wɔn bɛka wɔn nuanom no ho wɔ asase a wɔde bɛma wɔn sɛ wɔn agyapade no so. 7Bere a mifi Paddan-Aram reba no, ababaa Rahel wuu wɔ ɔkwan mu ma ɛyɛɛ me yaw. Na aka akwansin kakraa bi na yɛadu Efrat. Ɛno nti, misiee no wɔ Eufrate, a wɔfrɛ no Betlehem no kwankyɛn baabi.”

8Bere a Israel huu Yosef mmabarima no, obisae se, “Na eyinom yɛ hefo?”

9Yosef buaa nʼagya se, “Wɔyɛ mmabarima a Onyankopɔn de wɔn adom me wɔ ha.”

Na Israel kae se, “Fa wɔn bra mʼanim ha na minhyira wɔn.”

10Saa bere no, esiane onyin nti, na Israel ani so ayɛ wusiwusi a onhu ade papa. Ne saa nti, Yosef de ne mma no kɔɔ ne nkyɛn pɛɛ ma ɔyɛɛ wɔn atuu, fifew wɔn ano.

11Israel ka kyerɛɛ Yosef se, “Manna mannwene sɛ mehu wʼanim bio da, nanso hwɛ nea Onyame ayɛ. Wama me ho kwan ama mahu wo mma nso.”

12Yosef maa wɔn so fii Israel kotodwe anim, na ɔno ara nso buu nkotodwe de nʼanim butuw fam. 13Ɔsɔre no, ɔde ne nsa nifa soo Efraim mu, de no gyinaa Yakob benkum so, na ɔde ne nsa benkum soo Manase mu, de no gyinaa Yakob nifa so bɛn no pɛɛ. 14Israel teɛɛ ne nsa nifa de too Efraim a ɔyɛ akumaa no apampam, na ɔde ne nsa benkum no too Manase nso apampam. Ɛwɔ mu sɛ na Manase yɛ abakan de, nanso ɔde ne nsa benkum na ɛtoo nʼapampam.

15Ohyiraa Yosef se,

“Onyankopɔn a mʼagyanom

Abraham ne Isak nantew nʼanim,

ne me Nyankopɔn a ɔhwɛɛ me sɛ oguanhwɛfo

de besi nnɛ no,

16ɔsoro bɔfo a ogyee me fii ɔhaw nyinaa mu no,

onhyira saa mmarimaa yi.

Wɔmfa me din ne mʼagyanom,

Abraham ne Isak din ntoto wɔn,

na wɔn ase mfɛe

wɔ asase so.”

17Bere a Yosef huu sɛ nʼagya de ne nsa nifa ato Efraim apampam no, anyɛ no dɛ. Enti oyii nʼagya nsa nifa no fii Efraim apampam, kɔtoo Manase apampam. 18Yosef ka kyerɛɛ nʼagya se, “Dabi, mʼagya, oyi ne mʼabakan, nti fa wo nsa nifa to nʼapampam.”

19Nanso nʼagya ampene so kae se, “Me ba, minim saa. Ɔno nso bɛyɛ ɔman, na wayɛ ɔkɛse. Nanso ne nua kumaa no bɛyɛ ɔkɛse asen no, na nʼasefo bɛyɛ aman bebree.” 20Enti da no, Yakob hyiraa mmarimaa no se,

“Israelfo nyinaa nam mo din so behyirahyira wɔn ho wɔn ho.

Wɔbɛka se, ‘Onyankopɔn behyirahyira mo, ama moakɔ so frɔmfrɔm te sɛ Efraim ne Manase.’ ”

Saa ɔkwan yi so na Yakob fa maa Efraim bedii Manase anim.

21Na Israel ka kyerɛɛ Yosef se, “Merebewu, nanso Onyankopɔn bɛhwɛ mo so, na wasan de mo akɔ Kanaan, mo agyanom asase so bio. 22Wo a mprempren woabɛyɛ wo nuanom nyinaa so panyin no, mede asase a menam me afoa ne mʼagyan so gye fii Amorifo nkyɛn no rema wo.”

Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Genesis 48:1-22

Manase ndi Efereimu

1Patapita kanthawi Yosefe anawuzidwa kuti, “Abambo ako akudwala.” Choncho anatenga ana ake awiri aja Manase ndi Efereimu ndi kupita nawo kwa Yakobo. 2Yakobo atawuzidwa kuti, “Mwana wanu Yosefe wabwera,” Israeli anadzilimbitsa nadzuka kukhala tsonga pa bedi pake.

3Yakobo anati kwa Yosefe, “Mulungu Wamphamvuzonse anandionekera ku Luzi mʼdziko la Kanaani, ndipo anandidalitsa, 4nati kwa ine, ‘Ndidzakupatsa ana ambiri ndipo zidzukulu zako zidzasanduka mitundu yambiri ya anthu. Ndidzapereka dziko ili kwa zidzukulu zako zobwera pambuyo pako kuti likhale lawo mpaka muyaya.’

5“Tsopano ana ako aamuna awiri amene anabadwa ine ndisanabwere kuno adzakhala ana anga. Efereimu ndi Manase adzakhala anga monga mmene alili Rubeni ndi Simeoni. 6Koma amene ati adzabadwe pambuyo pa iwowa adzakhala ako ndipo cholowa chawo chidzadziwika ndi mayina a abale awo. 7Pamene ndimabwerera kuchoka ku Parani, mwachisoni Rakele, amayi ako anamwalira mʼdziko la Kanaani, tikanali mʼnjira, mtunda wokafika ku Efurata ukanalipo. Ndipo ndinawayika kumeneko mʼmphepete mwa msewu wa ku Efurata” (amene ndi Betelehemu).

8Israeli ataona ana a Yosefe anafunsa kuti, “Anyamatawa ndi a yani?”

9Yosefe anati kwa abambo ake, “Awa ndi ana anga amene Mulungu wandipatsa kuno.”

Ndipo Israeli anati, “Bwera nawo kuno kuti ndiwadalitse.”

10Koma maso a Israeli anali ofowoka chifukwa cha kukalamba moti sankaona nʼkomwe. Tsono Yosefe anabwera nawo ana ake aja pafupi ndi abambo ake ndipo abambo ake anawapsompsona nawakumbatira.

11Israeli anati kwa Yosefe, “Ine sindinali kuyembekeza kuti nʼkudzaonanso nkhope yako, ndipo tsopano Mulungu wandilola kuti ndionenso ngakhale ana ako.”

12Tsono Yosefe anawachotsa ana aja pa mawondo a Israeli ndipo anamuweramira nkhope pansi. 13Yosefe anawagwira ana onse awiri padzanja, Efereimu ku dzanja lake lamanja kulunjika dzanja lamanzere la Israeli ndipo Manase ku dzanja lamanzere kulunjikitsa dzanja lamanja la Israeli, ndipo anawayandikiza kwa Yakobo. 14Koma Israeli anapinganitsa mikono motero kuti anayika dzanja lake lamanja pamutu pa Efereimu ngakhale kuti iyeyo anali wamngʼono ndi dzanja lake lakumanzere analisanjika pamutu pa Manase ngakhale kuti iyeyu ndiye anali mwana woyamba.

15Kenaka anadalitsa Yosefe nati,

“Mulungu amene makolo anga

Abrahamu ndi Isake anamutumikira,

Mulungu amene wakhala ali mʼbusa wanga

moyo wanga wonse kufikira lero,

16mngelo amene wandipulumutsa ine ku zovuta zonse,

ameneyo adalitse anyamata awa.

Kudzera mwa iwowa

dzina langa ndi mayina a makolo anga, Abrahamu ndi Isake, adzamveka.

Iwowa adzakhala ndi ana ambiri nadzasanduka mtundu waukulu

pa dziko lapansi.”

17Yosefe ataona kuti abambo ake ayika dzanja lamanja pa Efereimu, sanakondwere. Choncho anagwira dzanja la abambo ake kuti alichotse pamutu pa Efereimu ndi kuliyika pamutu pa Manase, 18nati kwa abambo ake, “Ayi, abambo anga, uyu ndiye woyamba kubadwa, ikani dzanja lanu lamanja pamutu pake.”

19Koma abambo ake anakana nati, “Ndikudziwa, mwana wanga, ndikudziwa. Adzukulu a iyeyunso adzakhala mtundu waukulu. Komabe mʼbale wake wamngʼonoyu adzakhala wamkulu kuposa iye, ndipo zidzukulu zake zidzakhala mitundu yayikulu ya anthu.” 20Tsono iye anawadalitsa tsiku limenelo nati,

“Aisraeli adzagwiritsa ntchito dzina lanu podalitsa nadzati:

Mulungu akudalitseni monga Efereimu ndi Manase.”

Choncho anayika Efereimu patsogolo pa Manase.

21Kenaka Israeli anati kwa Yosefe, “Ine ndatsala pangʼono kufa, koma Mulungu adzakhala ndipo adzakutenganinso kubwerera nanu ku dziko la makolo anu. 22Ndiponso iwe wekha ndikupatsa moposera abale ako, malo woonjezera, Sekemu, malo amene ndinalanda kwa Aamori ndi lupanga ndi uta wanga.”
