Isak Ware Rebeka

1Na Abraham anyini a ne mfeɛ kɔ ɛkan yie. Awurade hyiraa no akwan ahodoɔ nyinaa so. 2Ɛda koro bi, Abraham ka kyerɛɛ ne ɔsomfoɔ panin a ɔhwɛ nʼagyapadeɛ nyinaa so sɛ, “Fa wo nsa ka me srɛ ase. 3Mepɛ sɛ woka Awurade a ɔyɛ ɔsoro ne asase Onyankopɔn ntam sɛ, worenware Kanaanfoɔ a me ne wɔn te yi babaa biara mma me babarima Isak. 4Na mmom, wobɛkɔ me ɔman mu, mʼabusuafoɔ nkyɛn, akɔware ɔbaa abrɛ no.”

5Ɔsomfoɔ no bisaa Abraham sɛ, “Me wura, na sɛ ɛba sɛ ɔbaa no ampene so sɛ ɔne me bɛba ɔman yi mu a, na mereyɛ no ɛdeɛn? Memfa wo babarima no nkɔ wo ɔman no mu anaa?”

6Abraham kaa sɛ, “Hwɛ yie na woamfa me babarima no ankɔ hɔ da. 7Awurade, ɔsoro Onyankopɔn a ɔde me firi mʼagya fie ne mʼasase so baa ha, na ɔkaa ntam hyɛɛ me bɔ sɛ, ‘Mede saa asase yi bɛma wʼasefoɔ no.’ Ɔno ara na ɔbɛsoma ne ɔbɔfoɔ adi wʼanim akɔ sɛdeɛ ɛbɛyɛ a, wobɛnya ɔyere afiri hɔ ama me babarima no. 8Sɛ ɛba sɛ, ɔbaa no ampene sɛ ɔne wo bɛba a, wo ntam a wokaeɛ no nkyekyere wo. Ɛnsɛ sɛ wode me babarima no kɔ hɔ.” 9Enti, ɔsomfoɔ no de ne nsa kaa ne wura Abraham srɛ ase, kaa saa asɛm yi ho ntam.

10Afei, ɔsomfoɔ no faa ne wura nyoma no mu edu kɔeɛ. Ɔrebɛkɔ no, ɔgyee ne wura Abraham nkyɛn nnepa ahodoɔ bebree kaa ho. Ɔde nʼani kyerɛɛ Mesopotamia, kɔduruu Nahor kuro mu. 11Ɔduruu Nahor kurotia no, ɔmaa nyoma no butubutuu abura bi a ɛwɔ hɔ ho. Na onwunu adwo a ɛyɛ ɛberɛ a mmaa bɛto nsuo wɔ abura no mu.

12Na ɔsomfoɔ no bɔɔ mpaeɛ sɛ, “Ao, Awurade, me wura Abraham Onyankopɔn, hunu me wura Abraham mmɔbɔ, na boa me, na mʼakwantuo yi nsi yie. 13Hwɛ, megyina abura yi so, na kuro yi mu mmabaawa rebɛto nsuo. 14Ma ɛmmra mu sɛ, ababaawa biara a mɛka akyerɛ no sɛ, ‘Mesrɛ wo, soɛ na ma me wo sukuruwa no mu nsuo no bi nnom no,’ sɛ ɔka sɛ, ‘Nom bi, na mɛma wo yoma no nso bi anom’ a, ɔnyɛ ababaawa a woapa no ama wʼakoa Isak. Ɛnam yei so bɛma mahunu sɛ, woahunu me wura mmɔbɔ.”

15Ɔgu so rebɔ mpaeɛ no na Rebeka baeɛ a ne sukuruwa si nʼabati so. Saa Rebeka no yɛ Betuel ba. Betuel no nso yɛ Abraham nuabarima Nahor ne ne yere Milka babarima. 16Na Rebeka no yɛ ɔbaabunu a ne ho yɛ fɛ yie. Na ɔbarima biara mfaa ne ho nkaa no da. Ɔsiane kɔɔ abura no so, kɔhyɛɛ ne sukuruwa no nsuo ma, sane baeɛ.

17Ɔsomfoɔ no de ahoɔherɛ kɔhyiaa Rebeka, ka kyerɛɛ no sɛ, “Mesrɛ wo, hwie wo sukuruwa no mu nsuo no kakra ma mennom.”

18Ntɛm ara, ɔsoɛɛ ne sukuruwa no kaa sɛ, “Me wura, gye bi nom.”

19Rebeka maa ɔsomfoɔ no nsuo no bi nom wieeɛ no, ɔkaa sɛ, “Mɛsane akɔtwe nsuo no bi abrɛ wo nyoma no nyinaa nso anom.” 20Enti, Rebeka de ahoɔherɛ hwiee ne nsuo no guu anomeeɛ bi mu, sane kɔtwee nsuo a ɛbɛso nyoma no nyinaa nom de baeɛ. 21Ɔsomfoɔ no hwɛɛ Rebeka komm, karii no pɛɛ sɛ ɔhunu sɛ Awurade ama nʼakwantuo no asi no yie anaa.

22Nyoma no nom nsuo no wieeɛ no, ɔsomfoɔ no yii sikakɔkɔɔ hwenemukawa a emu duru kari gram nsia ne sikakɔkɔɔ nkapo mmienu a ɛno nso mu duru yɛ gram ɔha dunan. 23Afei, ɔbisaa sɛ, “Hwan ba ne wo? Mesrɛ wo, yɛbɛnya daberɛ wɔ wo agya fie ama adeɛ akye anaa?”

24Rebeka buaa no sɛ, “Betuel babaa ne me. Me nananom ne Milka ne Nahor.” 25Ɔka kaa ho sɛ, “Yɛwɔ ɛserɛ ne mmoa aduane bebree ne baabi a, mo nso, mobɛda.”

26Afei, ɔsomfoɔ no buu nkotodwe, sɔree Awurade Onyankopɔn sɛ, 27“Nhyira nka Awurade, me wura Abraham Onyankopɔn, sɛ ɔnnyaee nokorɛdie ne ayamyɛ a ɔyɛ ma me wura no. Me deɛ, Awurade adi mʼanim wɔ mʼakwantuo yi mu, de me abɛduru me wura abusuafoɔ fie.”

28Rebeka tuu mmirika kɔkaa nsɛm a asisie no nyinaa kyerɛɛ ne maame fiefoɔ. 29Na Rebeka wɔ nuabarima bi a ne din de Laban. Laban tee asɛm no, ɔde ahoɔherɛ kɔɔ ɔbarima no nkyɛn wɔ abura no so. 30Laban hunuu hwenemukawa no ne nkapo a ɛgu ne nuabaa no nsa no, na ɔtee asɛm a ɔbarima no ka kyerɛɛ Rebeka no, ɔkɔɔ ɔbarima no nkyɛn kɔhunuu sɛ ɔgyina nyoma no ho wɔ asubura no so. 31Laban ka kyerɛɛ ɔsomfoɔ no sɛ, “Bra, wo a Awurade ahyira wo.” Ɔbisaa ɔsomfoɔ no sɛ, “Adɛn enti na wogyina kurotia ha? Masiesie wo daberɛ ne baabi a nyoma no nso bɛda.”

32Enti, ɔsomfoɔ no kɔɔ efie hɔ maa Laban yiyii nneɛma a ɛsoso nyoma no. Wɔmaa nyoma no ɛserɛ ne aduane, afei Laban maa ɔsomfoɔ no ne nnipa a wɔka ne ho no nsuo de hohoroo wɔn nan ho. 33Yei akyiri no, ɔtoo wɔn ɛpono. Nanso, ɔsomfoɔ no kaa sɛ, “Merempɛ sɛ mɛdidi, gye sɛ mabɔ mʼamanneɛ.”

Laban kaa sɛ, “Bɔ wʼamanneɛ ɛ.”

34Enti, ɔsomfoɔ no bɔɔ nʼamanneɛ sɛ, “Meyɛ Abraham ɔsomfoɔ. 35Awurade ahyira me wura bebree, ama wayɛ ɔdefoɔ. Wama no nnwan ne anantwie, dwetɛ ne sikakɔkɔɔ, nkoa ne mfenaa ne nyoma ne mfunumu. 36Bio, me wura yere Sara awo ɔbabarima ama no wɔ ne mmerewaberɛ mu; Awurade na ɔde deɛ ɔwɔ nyinaa ama no. 37Me wura maa mekaa ntam sɛ, ‘Worenware Kanaanfoɔ a me ne wɔn te yi babaa biara mma me babarima Isak. 38Na mmom, wobɛkɔ me ɔman mu, mʼabusuafoɔ nkyɛn, akɔware ɔbaa wɔ hɔ abrɛ me babarima Isak.’

39“Na mebisaa me wura sɛ, ‘Na sɛ ɛba sɛ, ɔbaa no ampene so sɛ ɔne me bɛba ɔman yi mu a, na mereyɛ no ɛdeɛn?’

40“Me wura Abraham buaa sɛ, ‘Awurade a manante nʼanim no bɛsoma ne ɔbɔfoɔ, adi wʼanim, sɛdeɛ ɛbɛyɛ a, wʼakwantuo no bɛsi yie, na woanya ɔyere ama me babarima afiri mʼabusua mu a ɛyɛ mʼagya fie no mu. 41Afei, sɛ ɛba sɛ, woba mʼabusua mu, na sɛ wɔamfa ɔbaa no amma wo a, wo ntam a wokaeɛ no renkyekyere wo.’

42“Mebaa asubura no so ɛnnɛ no, mesrɛɛ sɛ, ‘Ao, Awurade, me wura Abraham Onyankopɔn, sɛ ɛyɛ wo pɛ a, ma akwantuo yi nsi me yie! 43Hwɛ, megyina abura yi so. Sɛ ababaawa bi bɛto nsuo wɔ ha, na meka kyerɛ no sɛ, “Mesrɛ wo, soɛ na ma me wo sukuruwa no mu nsuo no kakra nnom” no, 44na sɛ ɔka sɛ, “Nom bi, na mɛma wo nyoma no nso bi anom” a, ɔnyɛ ababaawa a Awurade apa no ama me wura Abraham babarima Isak no.’

45“Ansa na mɛwie mʼakoma mu mpaeɛbɔ no, Rebeka puee a sukuruwa si ne batiri so. Rebeka kɔɔ abura no so, kɔtoo nsuo, na meka kyerɛɛ no sɛ, ‘Mesrɛ wo, ma me nsuo no bi nnom.’

46“Ntɛm ara, ɔsoɛɛ ne sukuruwa no kaa sɛ, ‘Me wura, gye bi nom na mɛsane atwe nsuo no bi abrɛ wo nyoma no nyinaa nso anom.’ Enti, menom nsuo no bi, na ɔmaa nyoma no nyinaa nso bi nomeeɛ.

47“Mebisaa no sɛ, ‘Hwan ba ne wo?’

“Rebeka buaa sɛ, ‘Betuel ba ne me. Me nananom ne Milka ne Nahor.’

“Ɛhɔ ara na mede hwenemukawa no hyɛɛ ne hwenemu, ɛnna mede nkapo no nso guu ne nsa. 48Afei, mebɔɔ me mu ase sɔree Awurade. Mekamfoo Awurade a ɔyɛ me wura, Abraham Onyankopɔn, a wadi mʼanim de me afa ɛkwan pa so, ama manya me wura nuabarima nana aware ama ne babarima no. 49Afei, sɛ wobɛyɛ me wura adɔeɛ adi no nokorɛ a, ka kyerɛ me.

50Laban ne Betuel buaa sɛ, “Saa asɛm yi firi Awurade enti, yɛnni ho asɛm biara. 51Rebeka ni. Momfa no nkɔ, na ɔnkɔware mo wura no babarima no, sɛdeɛ Awurade ahyɛ no.”

52Ɛberɛ a Abraham ɔsomfoɔ no tee deɛ wɔkaeɛ no, ɔbuu nkotodwe wɔ Awurade anim. 53Afei, ɔsomfoɔ no yii sikakɔkɔɔ ne dwetɛ nnwinneɛ ne ntadeɛ maa Rebeka. Ɔsane de nneɛma a ɛsom bo yie yɛɛ Rebeka nuabarima ne ne maame ayɛ. 54Afei, ɔsomfoɔ no ne nnipa a wɔka ne ho no didi nomeeɛ, na wɔda maa adeɛ kyeeɛ.

Adeɛ kyee anɔpa a wɔsɔreeɛ no, ɔsomfoɔ no kaa sɛ, “Monnya me ɛkwan, na mensane nkɔ me wura nkyɛn.”

55Nanso, Rebeka nuabarima no ne ne maame buaa ɔsomfoɔ no sɛ, “Ma ababaawa no ntena yɛn nkyɛn bɛyɛ sɛ dadu bi, na ɛno akyiri, wode no akɔ.”

56Akoa no buaa wɔn sɛ, “Awurade ahyira mʼakwantuo yi so ama me yi deɛ, mesrɛ mo, monnnye me nka ha. Monnya me ɛkwan, na mensane nkɔ me wura nkyɛn.”

57Afei, wɔsii gyinaeɛ sɛ, “Momma yɛmfrɛ ababaawa no, na yɛmmisa nʼadwene.” 58Enti, wɔfrɛɛ Rebeka bisaa no sɛ, “Wopɛ sɛ wo ne saa ɔbarima yi kɔ anaa?”

Rebeka buaa sɛ, “Aane, mɛkɔ!”

59Enti, wɔgyaa Rebeka ne ɔbaa a ɔgyegyee no ne nkwadaaberɛm ne Abraham ɔsomfoɔ no ne ne nkurɔfoɔ ɛkwan. 60Wɔhyiraa Rebeka sɛ,

61Afei, Rebeka ne ne mmaawa siesiee wɔn ho, tenatenaa wɔn nyoma so ne Abraham ɔsomfoɔ no kɔeɛ. Yei ne ɛkwan a Abraham ɔsomfoɔ no faa so de Rebeka kɔeɛ.
