King James Version

Exodus 1:1-22

1Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob. 2Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah, 3Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin, 4Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher. 5And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.1.5 loins: Heb. thigh 6And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.

7¶ And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.

8Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. 9And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we: 10Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land. 11Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses. 12But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.1.12 But…: Heb. And as they afflicted them, so they multiplied, etc 13And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour: 14And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour.

15¶ And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah: 16And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live. 17But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive. 18And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive? 19And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them. 20Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty. 21And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses. 22And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.

Okuva 1:1-22

Abayisirayiri Babonyaabonyezebwa

11:1 Lub 46:8Gano ge mannya ga batabani ba Isirayiri, era ye Yakobo, abajja naye mu Misiri; buli omu n’ab’omu nnyumba ye:

2Lewubeeni, ne Simyoni, ne Leevi ne Yuda,

3ne Isakaali, ne Zebbulooni, ne Benyamini,

4ne Ddaani, ne Nafutaali, ne Gaadi, ne Aseri.

51:5 Lub 46:26Abaana bonna awamu Yakobo yennyini be yazaala baali bawera nsanvu1:5 ebiwandiiko ebimu bigamba nsanvu; kyokka ebiwandiiko ebyasangibwa mu Nnyanja ey’Omunnyo bigamba nsanvu mu bataano; Yusufu ye, yali yabeera dda mu Misiri.

61:6 Lub 50:26Awo Yusufu n’afa; ne baganda be ne bonna ab’omulembe ogwo ne bafa. 71:7 Lub 46:3; Ma 26:5; Bik 7:17Naye Abayisirayiri ne bazaala nnyo, ne baala, ne bayitirira obungi, era ne baba ba maanyi nnyo; ne bajjula ekitundu ekyo mwe baali.

8Awo ne waddawo kabaka omuggya mu Misiri ataamanya Yusufu. 91:9 Zab 105:24-25N’agamba abantu be nti, “Abayisirayiri batuyitiriddeko obungi era ba maanyi. 101:10 a Zab 83:3 b Bik 7:17-19Ka tubasalire amagezi baleme kweyongera bungi. Kubanga singa wagwawo olutalo ne beegatta n’abalabe baffe, ne batulwanyisa, balituddukako ne bava mu nsi eno.”

111:11 a Kuv 3:7 b Lub 15:13; Kuv 2:11; 5:4; 6:6-7 c Lub 47:11 d 1Bk 9:19; 2By 8:4Bwe batyo ne babateekako bannampala bababonyeebonye n’emirimu egy’obuwaze; ne bazimbira Falaawo ebibuga eby’amaterekero, Pisomu ne Lamusesi. 12Naye gye baakoma okutuntuzibwa, ate gye baakoma okweyongera obungi, ne basaasaana wonna. Abamisiri ne bakyawa abaana ba Isirayiri ate nga bwe babatya. 131:13 Ma 4:20Ne bongera okutuntuza abaana ba Isirayiri n’obukambwe. 141:14 Kuv 2:23; 6:9; Kbl 20:15; Zab 81:6; Bik 7:19Obulamu bw’Abayisirayiri ne bubakaayirira nga bakozesebwa ng’abaddu; nga batabula ebbumba okukola amatoffaali; n’emirimu egya buli ngeri egikolebwa mu nnimiro. Mu mirimu egyo gyonna baabakozesanga n’amaanyi era n’obukambwe.

Falaawo Awa Abazaalisa Ekiragiro

15Awo kabaka w’e Misiri n’ayogera n’abazaalisa b’Abaebbulaniya, amannya gaabwe Sifira ne Puwa1:15 Sifira ne Puwa baali abazaalisa Abaebbulaniya., n’abagamba nti, 16“Bwe mubanga muzaalisa abakazi Abaebbulaniya, ne mulaba ng’omwana wabulenzi, mumuttanga bussi, naye bw’abanga owoobuwala, mumulekanga n’alama.” 171:17 a nny 21; Nge 16:6 b Dan 3:16-18; Bik 4:18-20; 5:29Naye abazaalisa baali batya Katonda, nga bamussaamu ekitiibwa, ebyo kabaka w’e Misiri bye yabalagira ne batabikolerako, n’abaana abalenzi nabo ne babaleka ne balama. 18Kabaka w’e Misiri n’ayita abazaalisa, n’ababuuza nti, “Kiki ekibakozesezza bwe mutyo, okuleka abaana abalenzi ne balama?”

191:19 Yos 2:4-6; 2Sa 17:20Abazaalisa, ne baddamu Falaawo nti, “Abakazi Abaebbulaniya tebali ng’abakazi Abamisiri; bo balamu bulungi era ba maanyi; abazaalisa we bagendera okubatuukako nga bamaze okuzaala.”

201:20 nny 12; Nge 11:18; Is 3:10Katonda, n’ayisanga bulungi abazaalisa n’abawa emikisa. Abaana ba Isirayiri ne beeyongera nnyo obungi era ne baba ba maanyi nnyo. 211:21 1Sa 2:35; 2Sa 7:11, 27-29; 1Bk 11:38Olwokubanga abazaalisa bassangamu Katonda ekitiibwa, nga bamutya, n’abawa ezzadde.

221:22 Bik 7:19Falaawo n’alyoka alagira abantu be bonna nti, “Buli mwana wabulenzi Abaebbulaniya gwe banaazaalanga mumusuulanga mu mugga Kiyira, naye owoobuwala mumulekanga.”
