1Yakob toaa nʼakwantuo so kɔduruu apueeɛfoɔ asase so. 2Asase no so baabi na ɔkɔhunuu abura bi a nnwankuo mmiɛnsa butubutu ho. Ɛfiri sɛ, saa abura no mu nsuo na wɔsa ma nnwan no nom. Na ɛboɔ kɛseɛ bi na ɛkata abura no so. 3Ɛberɛ biara a nnwankuo no bɛboa wɔn ho ano wɔ hɔ no, nnwanhwɛfoɔ no pire ɛboɔ no firi abura no ano ma nnwan no nsuo nom. Sɛ nnwan no nom nsuo no wie a, na nnwanhwɛfoɔ no asane de ɛboɔ no akata abura no ano.

4Yakob bisaa wɔn sɛ, “Anuanom, mofiri he na mobaa ha?”

Wɔbuaa Yakob sɛ, “Yɛfiri Haran.”

5Yakob sane bisaa wɔn sɛ, “Monim Nahor nana Laban anaa?”

Nnwanhwɛfoɔ no nso buaa no sɛ, “Aane, yɛnim no.”

6Afei, Yakob bisaa wɔn sɛ, “Na ne ho te sɛn?”

Wɔbuaa no sɛ, “Ne ho yɛ. Na ne babaa Rahel koraa na ɔne ne nnwan reba yi.”

7Yakob kaa sɛ, “Monhwɛ. Owia no ano yɛ den dodo. Ɛberɛ a ɛsɛ sɛ wɔboaboa mmoa no ano nnuruiɛ. Momma wɔn nsuo nnom, na monka wɔn nkɔ wɔn adidibea.”

8Nnwanhwɛfoɔ no buaa Yakob sɛ, “Sɛ yɛmmoaboaa nnwan no nyinaa ano, na yɛmpiree ɛboɔ no mfirii abura no ano a, yɛrentumi mma wɔn nsuo nnom.”

9Yakob gu so ne wɔn rekasa no ara na Rahel a ɔno nso yɛ odwanhwɛfoɔ no de nʼagya nnwan baa hɔ. 10Ɛberɛ a Yakob hunuu ne maame nuabarima Laban babaa Rahel ne ne wɔfa Laban nnwan no, ɔkɔpiree ɛboɔ no firii abura no ano. Afei, wɔmaa nnwan no nsuo nomeeɛ. 11Afei, Yakob fee Rahel ano, na ɔsuiɛ. 12Na Yakob aka akyerɛ Rahel sɛ, ɔno Yakob yɛ Rahel no agya busuani a ɔsane yɛ nʼagya Laban no nuabaa Rebeka babarima. Enti, Rahel tuu mmirika kɔka kyerɛɛ nʼagya.

13Laban tee ne nuabaa Rebeka ba Yakob ho asɛm no, ɔyɛɛ ntɛm kɔhyiaa no. Laban yɛɛ no atuu, fee nʼano, de no baa ne fie, maa Yakob bɔɔ no nʼananteseɛ. 14Laban ka kyerɛɛ no sɛ, nokorɛ ni, “woyɛ me busuani.” Na Yakob tenaa Laban nkyɛn bosome.

Yakob Ware Laban Mmammaa Lea Ne Rahel

15Ɛda koro bi, Laban ka kyerɛɛ Yakob sɛ, “Ɛwom sɛ woyɛ me busuani deɛ, nanso ɛno nkyerɛ sɛ, sɛ woyɛ adwuma ma me a ɛnsɛ sɛ metua wo ka. Kyerɛ me akatua a wopɛ na memfa mma wo.”

16Na Laban wɔ mmammaa baanu. Na ɔpanin no din de Lea ɛnna akumaa no nso de Rahel. 17Na Lea aniwa aba yɛ fɛ, ɛnna Rahel yɛ ɔbaa fɛfɛ a nʼanim yɛ nyam yie. 18Na Yakob dɔ Rahel awadeɛ kwan so, enti ɔka kyerɛɛ Rahel agya Laban sɛ, “Sɛ wode wo babaa kumaa Rahel bɛma me aware a, anka me nso mɛsom wo mfeɛ nson.”

19Laban kaa sɛ, “Mepene so! Ɛyɛ sɛ mede no bɛma wo aware mmom sene sɛ mede no bɛma obi foforɔ bi a mennim no. Enti, tena me nkyɛn.” 20Esiane ɔdɔ a na Yakob dɔ Rahel enti, ɔsomm Laban mfeɛ nson, na wanhunu koraa sɛ, wasom akyɛre saa. Ɛyɛɛ no sɛ gyama ɔsomee nnansa bi pɛ.

21Yakob som wieeɛ no, ɔka kyerɛɛ Laban sɛ, “Masom awie enti, fa Rahel ma me na menware no.”

22Ɛno enti, Laban too ɛpono kɛseɛ, na ɔtoo nsa frɛɛ nnipa a na ɔne wɔn wɔ hɔ nyinaa baa apontoɔ no ase. 23Na ɛduruu anadwo a esum aduru no, Laban de ne babaa Lea kɔmaa Yakob, maa ɔne no daeɛ. 24Ɛno akyiri no, Laban de nʼafenawa Silpa kaa Lea ho sɛ ɔnkɔsom no.

25Adeɛ kyeeɛ no, ɔhunuu sɛ Lea mmom na ɔda nʼakyi. Ɛnna Yakob bisaa Laban sɛ, “Asɛm bɛn na wo ne me adi yi? Ɛnyɛ Rahel enti na mesom wo? Adɛn enti na woadaadaa me sei?”

26Laban buaa Yakob sɛ, “Ɛha deɛ, ɛnyɛ yɛn amanneɛ sɛ yɛde ɔbabaa kumaa ma aware wɔ ɛberɛ a ɔpanin no nwareeɛ. 27Ma Lea nni nnawɔtwe wɔ wo nkyɛn, na nnawɔtwe no akyiri no, sɛ wopɛ Rahel ara a, mɛma woasane asom mfirinhyia nson bio, na mede no ama wo aware.”

28Yakob penee so ne Lea tenaa nnawɔtwe. Ɛno akyiri, ɔsomm mfeɛ nson ansa na Laban de ne babaa Rahel nso maa no wareeɛ. 29Laban de nʼafenawa Bilha nso maa ne babaa Rahel sɛ ɔnkɔsom no. 30Yakob de ne ho kaa Rahel nso. Na ɔdɔ Rahel sene Lea. Yakob tenaa Laban nkyɛn, somm no mfirinhyia nson bio sɛdeɛ ɔne no hyehyɛeɛ no.

31Awurade hunuu sɛ Yakob ani nnye Lea ho no, ɔbuee ne yafunu mu, nanso Rahel deɛ, na ɔnwo. 32Lea nyinsɛneeɛ, woo ɔbabarima. Ɔtoo no edin Ruben a asekyerɛ ne “Awurade ahunu mmɔborɔ a meyɛ.” Na Lea kaa sɛ, “Awurade ahunu me mmɔbɔ. Nokorɛm, afei na me kunu ani bɛgye me ho.”

33Lea nyinsɛnee bio na ɔsane woo ɔbabarima bio no, ɔkaa sɛ, “Esiane sɛ Awurade hunuu sɛ me kunu ani nnye me ho enti, wasane akyɛ me ɔbabarima bio.” Enti, ɔtoo ne din Simeon a asekyerɛ ne “Awurade ate!”

34Lea sane nyinsɛnee bio. Na ɔwoo ɔbabarima bio no, ɔkaa sɛ, “Afei deɛ, me kunu de ne ho bɛfam me ho, ɛfiri sɛ, mawo mmammarima baasa ama no.” Ɛno enti, ɔtoo no edin Lewi a asekyerɛ ne “Ahofam.”

Jakubu Gũkinya Padani-Aramu

129:1 Kĩam 25:6Thuutha ũcio Jakubu agĩthiĩ na mbere na rũgendo rwake, agĩkinya bũrũri wa andũ a mwena wa irathĩro. 2Na rĩrĩ, akĩona gĩthima werũ-inĩ, na ndũũru ithatũ cia mbũri ikomete hakuhĩ nakĩo, tondũ cianyuithagio maaĩ kuuma gĩthima-inĩ kĩu. Narĩo ihiga rĩrĩa rĩakunĩkĩte mũromo wa gĩthima kĩu rĩarĩ inene mũno. 3Na ndũũru ciothe ciarĩkia kũrũrũngana hau, arĩithi nao maagaragaragia ihiga rĩkeherio mũromo-inĩ wa gĩthima, makahe ndũũru maaĩ. Magacooka magacookia ihiga handũ harĩo mũromo-inĩ wa gĩthima.

429:4 Kĩam 42:7; Atiir 19:17Jakubu akĩũria arĩithi acio atĩrĩ, “Ariũ a baba, muumĩte kũ?”

Nao makĩmũcookeria atĩrĩ, “Tuumĩte Harani.”

5Akĩmooria atĩrĩ, “Nĩ mũũĩ Labani mũrũ wa Nahoru?”

Nao magĩcookia “Ĩĩ, nĩ tũmũũĩ.”

629:6 Kĩam 30:22-27; Thaam 2:16Ningĩ Jakubu akĩmooria atĩrĩ, “No mwega?”

Makiuga atĩrĩ, “Ĩĩ, nĩ mwega. Na rĩrĩ, mwarĩ Rakeli-rĩ, nĩwe ũũrĩa ũroka na ngʼondu.”

7Nake Jakubu akĩmeera ũũ, “Atĩrĩrĩ, riũa rĩrĩ o igũrũ; na ti ihinda rĩa gũcookanĩrĩria ndũũru. Heei ngʼondu maaĩ, mũcooke mũthiĩ mũgacirĩithie.”

8Nao makĩmũcookeria atĩrĩ, “Tũtingĩĩka ũguo o nginya ndũũru ciothe icookanĩrĩrio, narĩo ihiga rĩgaragario kuuma mũromo wa gĩthima, tũcooke tũhe ngʼondu maaĩ.”

9O akĩmaragĩria-rĩ, Rakeli agĩkinya na ngʼondu cia ithe, tondũ aarĩ mũrĩithi. 10Rĩrĩa Jakubu onire Rakeli mwarĩ wa Labani, mũrũ wa nyina na nyina, na ngʼondu cia Labani, agĩthiĩ, akĩgaragaria ihiga, akĩrĩeheria mũromo-inĩ wa gĩthima na akĩhe ngʼondu cia mamawe maaĩ. 1129:11 Kĩam 33:4Ningĩ Jakubu akĩmumunya Rakeli, na akĩrĩra anĩrĩire. 1229:12 Kĩam 24:28; Luk 15:20Jakubu nĩeerĩte Rakeli atĩ nĩ metainwo na ithe, na atĩ aarĩ mũrũ wa Rebeka. Nĩ ũndũ ũcio Rakeli agĩtengʼera akĩĩra ithe ũhoro ũcio.

Akĩmũhĩmbĩria akĩmũmumunya, na akĩmũtwara mũciĩ, na arĩ kũu mũciĩ Jakubu akĩhe Labani ũhoro ũcio wothe. 1429:14 Atiir 9:2; Isa 58:7Nake Labani akĩmwĩra atĩrĩ, “Ti-itherũ, ũrĩ wa mũthiimo wakwa na thakame yakwa.”

Jakubu Kũhikia Lea na Rakeli

Thuutha wa Jakubu gũikara nake mweri mũgima, 15Labani akĩmũũria atĩrĩ, “Ũrĩndutagĩra wĩra o ũguo tũhũ tondũ ũrĩ wa mbarĩ ciitũ? Njĩĩra mũcaara ũrĩa ũkwenda.”

1629:16 Kĩam 30:9; Ruth 4:2, 11Na rĩrĩ, Labani aarĩ na airĩtu eerĩ; ũrĩa mũkũrũ eetagwo Lea, nake ũrĩa mũnini eetagwo Rakeli. 17Lea aarĩ na maitho mataarĩ na hinya, no Rakeli oombĩtwo arĩ kĩĩrorerwa na aarĩ mũthaka. 1829:18 Kĩam 24:67; Hos 12:12Jakubu eendete Rakeli, nake akiuga atĩrĩ, “Nĩngũgũtungatĩra mĩaka mũgwanja, ũndĩhe na kũũhe Rakeli, mwarĩguo ũrĩa mũnini.”29:18 Mũhikania aarĩhaga rũracio kũrĩ ithe wa mũirĩtu (34:12). Angĩakorirwo atarĩ na indo cia kũraacia, nĩangĩarĩhire rũracio na njĩra ya kũrutĩra ithe wa mũirĩtu wĩra.

19Labani agĩcookia atĩrĩ, “Nĩ kaba ndĩmũheanĩte kũrĩ we gũkĩra ndĩmũhe mũndũ ũngĩ. Ikara gũkũ na niĩ, ũndungate.” 20Nĩ ũndũ ũcio Jakubu agĩtungata mĩaka mũgwanja nĩguo aheo Rakeli, no harĩ we yarĩ o ta matukũ manini nĩ ũndũ wa ũrĩa aamwendete.

2229:22 Atiir 14:10; Joh 2:1-2Nĩ ũndũ ũcio Labani agĩkĩũngania andũ a kũu othe, akĩmarugĩra iruga. 23No rĩrĩa hwaĩ-inĩ wakinyire-rĩ, akĩoya mwarĩ Lea, akĩmũnengera Jakubu, nake Jakubu agĩkoma nake. 24Ningĩ Labani akĩheana Zilipa, ndungata yake ya mũirĩtu kũrĩ mwarĩ ĩmũtungatagĩre.

2529:25 Kĩam 12:18; Kĩam 27:36Na gwakĩa rũciinĩ-rĩ, Jakubu akĩona atĩ aaheetwo Lea! Tondũ ũcio Jakubu akĩũria Labani atĩrĩ, “Hĩ nĩ atĩa ũũ wanjĩka? Githĩ ndiragũtungatagĩra nĩ ũndũ wa Rakeli? Ũũheenetie nĩkĩ?”

2629:26 1Sam 14:49; 2Sam 6:23Labani akĩmũcookeria atĩrĩ, “Ti mũtugo witũ gũkũ kũheana mũirĩtu ũrĩa mũnini ahike mbere ya ũrĩa mũkũrũ: 27Rĩĩkia kiumia kĩa mũirĩtu ũyũ wahikia, na nĩtũgũcooka tũkũhe o na ũcio ũngĩ mũnini, nawe ũndutĩre wĩra mĩaka ĩngĩ mũgwanja.”

28Nake Jakubu agĩĩka o ũguo. Akĩrĩkia kiumia kĩa Lea, nake Labani akĩmũnengera mwarĩ Rakeli atuĩke mũtumia wake. 2929:29 1Maũ 5:1; Kĩam 16:1Labani akĩheana Biliha, ndungata yake ya mũirĩtu, kũrĩ Rakeli ĩmũtungatagĩre. 30Jakubu agĩkoma na Rakeli o nake, na akĩenda Rakeli gũkĩra Lea. Na akĩrutĩra Labani wĩra mĩaka ĩngĩ mũgwanja.
