Abayisirayiri Babonyaabonyezebwa

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

Lewubeeni, ne Simyoni, ne Leevi ne Yuda,

ne Isakaali, ne Zebbulooni, ne Benyamini,

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

Abaana bonna awamu Yakobo yennyini be yazaala baali bawera nsanvu[a]; Yusufu ye, yali yabeera dda mu Misiri.

Awo Yusufu n’afa; ne baganda be ne bonna ab’omulembe ogwo ne bafa. Naye Abayisirayiri ne bazaala nnyo, ne baala, ne bayitirira obungi, era ne baba ba maanyi nnyo; ne bajjula ekitundu ekyo mwe baali.

Awo ne waddawo kabaka omuggya mu Misiri ataamanya Yusufu. N’agamba abantu be nti, “Abayisirayiri batuyitiriddeko obungi era ba maanyi. 10 Ka tubasalire amagezi baleme kweyongera bungi. Kubanga singa wagwawo olutalo ne beegatta n’abalabe baffe, ne batulwanyisa, balituddukako ne bava mu nsi eno.”

11 Bwe batyo ne babateekako bannampala bababonyeebonye n’emirimu egy’obuwaze; ne bazimbira Falaawo ebibuga eby’amaterekero, Pisomu ne Lamusesi. 12 Naye gye baakoma okutuntuzibwa, ate gye baakoma okweyongera obungi, ne basaasaana wonna. Abamisiri ne bakyawa abaana ba Isirayiri ate nga bwe babatya. 13 Ne bongera okutuntuza abaana ba Isirayiri n’obukambwe. 14 Obulamu 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

15 Awo kabaka w’e Misiri n’ayogera n’abazaalisa b’Abaebbulaniya, amannya gaabwe Sifira ne Puwa[b], n’abagamba nti, 16 “Bwe mubanga muzaalisa abakazi Abaebbulaniya, ne mulaba ng’omwana wabulenzi, mumuttanga bussi, naye bw’abanga owoobuwala, mumulekanga n’alama.” 17 Naye abazaalisa baali batya Katonda, nga bamussaamu ekitiibwa, ebyo kabaka w’e Misiri bye yabalagira ne batabikolerako, n’abaana abalenzi nabo ne babaleka ne balama. 18 Kabaka w’e Misiri n’ayita abazaalisa, n’ababuuza nti, “Kiki ekibakozesezza bwe mutyo, okuleka abaana abalenzi ne balama?”

19 Abazaalisa, ne baddamu Falaawo nti, “Abakazi Abaebbulaniya tebali ng’abakazi Abamisiri; bo balamu bulungi era ba maanyi; abazaalisa we bagendera okubatuukako nga bamaze okuzaala.”

20 Katonda, n’ayisanga bulungi abazaalisa n’abawa emikisa. Abaana ba Isirayiri ne beeyongera nnyo obungi era ne baba ba maanyi nnyo. 21 Olwokubanga abazaalisa bassangamu Katonda ekitiibwa, nga bamutya, n’abawa ezzadde.

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

Exodus 1

The Israelites oppressed

1These are the names of the sons of Israel who went to Egypt with Jacob, each with his family: Reuben, Simeon, Levi and Judah; Issachar, Zebulun and Benjamin; Dan and Naphtali; Gad and Asher. The descendants of Jacob numbered seventy[a] in all; Joseph was already in Egypt.

Now Joseph and all his brothers and all that generation died, but the Israelites were exceedingly fruitful; they multiplied greatly, increased in numbers and became so numerous that the land was filled with them.

Then a new king, to whom Joseph meant nothing, came to power in Egypt. ‘Look,’ he said to his people, ‘the Israelites have become far too numerous for us. 10 Come, we must deal shrewdly with them or they will become even more numerous and, if war breaks out, will join our enemies, fight against us and leave the country.’

11 So they put slave masters over them to oppress them with forced labour, and they built Pithom and Rameses as store cities for Pharaoh. 12 But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites 13 and worked them ruthlessly. 14 They made their lives bitter with harsh labour in brick and mortar and with all kinds of work in the fields; in all their harsh labour, the Egyptians worked them ruthlessly.

15 The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, whose names were Shiphrah and Puah, 16 ‘When you are helping the Hebrew women during childbirth on the delivery stool, if you see that the baby is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, let her live.’ 17 The midwives, however, feared God and did not do what the king of Egypt had told them to do; they let the boys live. 18 Then the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and asked them, ‘Why have you done this? Why have you let the boys live?’

19 The midwives answered Pharaoh, ‘Hebrew women are not like Egyptian women; they are vigorous and give birth before the midwives arrive.’

20 So God was kind to the midwives and the people increased and became even more numerous. 21 And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families of their own.

22 Then Pharaoh gave this order to all his people: ‘Every Hebrew boy that is born you must throw into the Nile, but let every girl live.’
