Okulanga Okuzaalibwa kwa Yokaana Omubatiza

51:5 a Mat 2:1 b 1By 24:10Awo mu biro Kabaka Kerode we yafugira Obuyudaaya, waaliwo kabona erinnya lye Zaakaliya, nga wa mu kitongole kya Abiya, nga mukyala we naye yali wa mu kika kya Alooni, erinnya lye Erisabesi. 61:6 Lub 7:1; 1Bk 9:4Abantu abo bombi baali batuukirivu mu maaso ga Katonda, era nga batambulira mu mateeka ga Katonda gonna, ne mu biragiro bya Mukama, nga tebaliiko kya kunenyezebwa. 7Bombi baali bakaddiye nnyo, era tebaalina mwana, kubanga Erisabesi yali mugumba.

81:8 1By 24:19; 2By 8:14Awo lwali lumu, Zaakaliya bwe yali ng’ali ku mulimu gwe ogw’obwakabona mu maaso ga Katonda, kubanga kye kyali ekiseera eky’oluwalo lwe, 91:9 Kuv 30:7, 8; 1By 23:13; 2By 29:11n’alondebwa okwoteza obubaane mu yeekaalu ya Mukama, ng’emirimu gy’obwakabona bwe gyabanga. 101:10 Lv 16:17Mu ssaawa eyo ey’okwoteza obubaane ekibiina kyonna eky’abantu baali bakuŋŋaanidde mu luggya lwa Yeekaalu.

111:11 a Bik 5:19 b Kuv 30:1-10Awo malayika wa Mukama n’alabikira Zaakaliya, n’ayimirira ku luuyi olwa ddyo olw’ekyoto okwoterezebwa obubaane! 121:12 Bal 6:22, 23; 13:22Zaakaliya n’atya nnyo bwe yalaba malayika, entiisa n’emukwata. 131:13 a nny 30; Mat 14:27 b Mat 14:60, 63Naye malayika n’amugamba nti, “Totya Zaakaliya! Kubanga okusaba kwo kuwuliddwa, era mukazi wo Erisabesi ajja kukuzaalira omwana wabulenzi. Olimutuuma erinnya Yokaana. 141:14 nny 58Mwembi mulisanyuka nnyo ne mujaguza. Era bangi abalibasanyukirako olw’okuzaalibwa kwe. 151:15 a Kbl 6:3; Bal 13:4; Luk 7:33 b Yer 1:5; Bag 1:15Kubanga aliba mukulu mu maaso ga Katonda. Talinywa mwenge wadde ekitamiiza kyonna. Era alijjuzibwa Mwoyo Mutukuvu ng’akyali mu lubuto lwa nnyina. 16Era alireetera abaana ba Isirayiri bangi okudda eri Mukama Katonda waabwe. 171:17 a nny 76 b Mat 11:14 c Mal 4:5, 6Aliweerereza mu mwoyo ne mu maanyi aga nnabbi Eriya, n’akyusa emitima gy’aba kitaabwe okudda eri abaana baabwe, n’okukyusa emitima gy’abajeemu okudda eri amagezi g’abatuukirivu alyoke ateeketeeke abantu okulindirira Mukama.”

181:18 nny 34; Lub 17:17Zaakaliya n’agamba malayika nti, “Ekyo nnaakimanya ntya? Kubanga nze ndi mukadde, ne mukazi wange naye akaddiya nnyo.”

191:19 nny 26; Dan 8:16; 9:21; Mat 18:10Malayika n’amugamba nti, “Nze Gabulyeri ayimirira mu maaso ga Katonda, era y’antumye okwogera naawe n’okukuleetera amawulire gano. 201:20 Ez 3:26Naye olw’okuba nga tokkirizza bigambo byange, ojja kuziba omumwa, era togenda kuddamu kwogera okutuusa ng’ebintu ebyo bimaze okubaawo. Kubanga ebigambo byange byonna birimala kutuukirira mu kiseera kyabyo.”

21Abantu abaali balindirira ebweru wa Yeekaalu okulaba Zaakaliya ne beewuunya nnyo ekyamulwisaayo ennyo bw’atyo. 221:22 nny 62Oluvannyuma ennyo bwe yavaayo, yali tasobola kwogera nabo, ne bategeera nga mu Yeekaalu afuniddeyo okwolesebwa. N’asigala ng’azibye omumwa naye ng’abategeeza mu bubonero.

23N’abeera mu Yeekaalu okutuusa ennaku ze ez’oluwalo lwe zaggwaako n’alyoka addayo eka. 24Ennaku ezo bwe zaayitawo, mukazi we Erisabesi n’aba olubuto, ne yeekwekera ebbanga lya myezi etaano. 251:25 Lub 30:23; Is 4:1N’agamba nti, “Mukama nga wa kisa kingi, kubanga anziggyeeko ensonyi olw’obutaba na mwana.”

Okuzaalibwa kwa Yesu Kulangibwa

261:26 a nny 19 b Mat 2:23Awo mu mwezi ogw’omukaaga, Katonda n’atuma malayika Gabulyeri mu kibuga Nazaaleesi eky’omu Ggaliraaya 271:27 Mat 1:16, 18, 20; Luk 2:4eri omuwala erinnya lye Maliyamu, nga tamanyi musajja, eyali ayogerezebwa omusajja erinnya lye Yusufu, ow’omu lulyo lwa Dawudi. 28Awo Gabulyeri n’alabikira Maliyamu n’amulamusa nti, “Mirembe! Ggwe aweereddwa omukisa! Mukama ali naawe!”

29Maliyamu n’atya, n’abulwa n’ekyokwogera, ng’okulamusa okwo kumutabudde, nga n’amakulu gaakwo tagategeera. 301:30 nny 13; Mat 14:27Awo malayika n’amugamba nti, “Totya, Maliyamu, kubanga olabye ekisa mu maaso ga Katonda. 311:31 Is 7:14Kubanga, laba, olibeera olubuto, olizaala omwana wabulenzi era olimutuuma erinnya, Yesu. 321:32 nny 35, 76; Mak 5:7Agenda kuba mukulu, wa kitiibwa, era aliyitibwa Omwana w’Oyo Ali Waggulu Ennyo, era Mukama Katonda alimuwa entebe ey’obwakabaka eya jjajjaawe Dawudi. 331:33 a Mat 28:18 b Dan 2:44; 7:14, 27Alifuga ennyumba ya Yakobo emirembe gyonna, era n’obwakabaka bwe tebulikoma.”

34Awo Maliyamu n’abuuza malayika nti, “Ekyo kiriba kitya? Kubanga simanyi musajja.”

351:35 a Mat 1:18 b nny 32, 76 c Mak 1:24 d Mat 4:3Malayika n’amuddamu nti, “Mwoyo Mutukuvu alikukkako, n’amaanyi g’Oyo Ali Waggulu Ennyo galikubuutikira, n’omwana alizaalibwa aliba mutukuvu, Omwana wa Katonda. 36Laba, muganda wo Erisabesi eyayitibwanga omugumba, kati ali lubuto lwa myezi mukaaga mu bukadde bwe. 371:37 Mat 19:26Kubanga buli kigambo kiyinzika eri Katonda.”

38Maliyamu n’addamu nti, “Nze ndi muweereza wa Mukama, kibe ku nze nga bw’ogambye.” Malayika n’ava w’ali, n’agenda.

Maliyamu Akyalira Erisabesi

391:39 nny 65Awo mu biro ebyo, Maliyamu n’ayanguwa okugenda mu nsi ya Buyudaaya ey’ensozi, mu kibuga kyayo. 40N’ayingira mu nnyumba ya Zaakaliya n’alamusa Erisabesi. 41Naye Maliyamu bwe yalamusa Erisabesi, omwana eyali mu lubuto lwa Erisabesi n’abuukabuuka era n’ajjuzibwa Mwoyo Mutukuvu. 421:42 Bal 5:24Erisabesi n’alyoka ayogerera mu ddoboozi ery’omwanguka nti, “Oweereddwa omukisa, ggwe mu bakazi, era n’omwana ali mu lubuto lwo aweereddwa omukisa. 43Nga nfunye ekitiibwa kinene ggwe nnyina wa Mukama wange okujja okunkyalira! 44Kubanga bw’oyingidde n’onnamusa, omwana ali mu lubuto lwange oluwulidde ku ddoboozi lyo ne yeekyusakyusa olw’essanyu! 45Oweereddwa omukisa bw’okkirizza nti ebintu ebyo Mukama bya kwogeddeko birituukirizibwa.”

Oluyimba lwa Maliyamu

56Maliyamu n’amala ewa Erisabesi muganda we, ng’emyezi esatu, n’alyoka addayo ewuwe.

Okuzaalibwa kwa Yokaana

57Awo ekiseera kya Erisabesi eky’okuzaala ne kituuka, n’azaala omwana wabulenzi. 58Baliraanwa ba Erisabesi n’ab’ekika kye ne bawulira nga Mukama bw’amulaze ekisa, ne basanyukira wamu naye.

61Ne bamuwakanya nga bagamba nti, “Mu kika kyo kyonna tetuwulirangayo yatuumibwa linnya eryo.”

621:62 nny 22Ne babuuza kitaawe w’omwana erinnya ly’ayagala atuumibwe. 631:63 nny 13, 60N’abasaba eky’okuwandiikako, n’awandiikako nti, “Erinnya lye ye Yokaana!” Bonna ne beewuunya nnyo! 641:64 nny 20Amangwago akamwa ka Zaakaliya ne kagguka, n’olulimi lwe ne lusumulukuka, n’atandika okwogera n’okutendereza Katonda. 651:65 nny 39Abantu bonna ab’omu kitundu ekyo ne batya nnyo, era ebigambo ebyo ne bibuna mu nsi yonna ey’e Buyudaaya ey’ensozi. 661:66 Lub 39:2; Bik 11:21Buli eyawulira ebigambo ebyo n’abirowoozaako nnyo mu mutima gwe, ne yeebuuza nti, “Naye omwana ono bw’alikula aliba atya?” Kubanga awatali kubuusabuusa, omukono gwa Mukama gwali wamu naye.
