New Amharic Standard Version

ዕንባቆም 2:1-20

1በመጠበቂያ ላይ እቆማለሁ፤

በምሽጒ ቅጥር ላይ ወጥቼ እቈያለሁ፤

ምን እንደሚለኝ፣

ለክርክሩም2፥1 ወይም በተገሠጽሁ ጊዜ የምሰጠውን ምላሽ የምሰጠውን መልስ ለማወቅ እጠባበቃለሁ።

የእግዚአብሔር መልስ

2እግዚአብሔርም እንዲህ ሲል መለሰ፤

“በቀላሉ እንዲነበብ፣

ራእዩን ጻፈው፤

በሰሌዳም ላይ ቅረጸው።

3ራእዩ የተወሰነለትን ጊዜ ይጠብቃልና፤

ስለ መጨረሻውም ይናገራል፤

እርሱም አይዋሽም፤

የሚዘገይ ቢመስልም ጠብቀው፤

በርግጥ ይመጣል2፥3 የሚመጣ ሰው እንዳለ የሚያመለክቱ አሉ።፤ ከቶም አይዘገይም።

4“እነሆ፤ እርሱ ታብዮአል፤

ምኞቱ ቀና አይደለም፤

ጻድቅ ግን በእምነት2፥4 በታማኝነቱ የሚሉ አሉ። ይኖራል።

5በእርግጥ የወይን ጠጅ አታሎታል፤

ትዕቢተኛ ነው፤ ከቶ አያርፍም፤

እንደ ሲኦል2፥5 መቃብር የሚሉ አሉ። ስስታም ነው፣

እንደ ሞት ከቶ አይጠግብም፤

ሕዝቦችን ለራሱ ይሰበስባል፤

ሰዎችንም ሁሉ ማርኮ ይወስዳል።

6“ታዲያ በእንደዚህ ዐይነቱ ሰው ላይ በማፌዝና በመዘበት እንዲህ እያሉ ሁሉም አይሣለቁበትምን?

“የተሰረቀውን ሸቀጥ ለራሱ ለሚያከማች፣

ራሱን በዐመፅ ባለጠጋ ለሚያደርግ ወዮለት!

ይህ የሚቀጥለውስ እስከ መቼ ነው?”

7ባለ ዕዳ2፥7 ወይም አበዳሪ ያደረግሃቸው ድንገት አይነሡብህምን?

ነቅተውስ አያስደነግጡህምን?

በእጃቸውም ትወድቃለህ።

8አንተ ብዙ ሕዝብ ስለ ዘረፍህ፣

የተረፉት ሕዝቦች ይዘርፉሃል፤

የሰው ደም አፍሰሃልና፤

አገሮችንና ከተሞችን፣ በውስጣቸው የሚኖሩትን ሁሉ አጥፍተሃል።

9“በተጭበረበረ ትርፍ መኖሪያውን ለሚገነባ፣

ከጠላት እጅ ለማምለጥ፣

ቤቱን በከፍታ ላይ ለሚሠራ ወዮለት!

10የብዙ ሰዎች ነፍስ እንዲጠፋ አሢረሃል፤

በገዛ ቤትህ ላይ ውርደትን፣ በራስህም ላይ ጥፋትን አምጥተሃል።

11ድንጋይ ከቅጥሩ ውስጥ ይጮኻል፤

ከዕንጨት የተሠሩ ተሸካሚዎችም ይመልሱለታል።

12“ከተማን ደም በማፍሰስ ለሚሠራ፣

በወንጀልም ለሚመሠርታት ወዮለት።

13ሰዎች ለእሳት ማገዶ እንዲሆን እንዲለፉ፣

ሕዝቦችም በከንቱ እንዲደክሙ፣

እግዚአብሔር ጸባኦት ወስኖ የለምን?

14ውሃ ባሕርን እንደሚሸፍን ሁሉ፣

ምድርም የእግዚአብሔርን ክብር በማወቅ ትሞላለችና።

15“ኀፍረተ ሥጋቸውን ለማየት፤

ባልንጀሮቹን ለሚያጠጣ፣

እስኪሰክሩም ድረስ ወይን ለሚቀዳላቸው ወዮለት!

16በክብር ፈንታ ዕፍረት ትሞላለህ፤

አሁን ደግሞ ተራው የአንተ ነውና፤ ጠጣ፤ ኀፍረተ ሥጋህም ይገለጥ፤

በእግዚአብሔር ቀኝ እጅ ያለው ጽዋ ይመለስብሃል፤

ክብርህንም ውርደት ይሸፍነዋል።

17በሊባኖስ ላይ የሠራኸው ግፍ ያጥለቀልቅሃል፤

እንስሳቱን ማጥፋትህም ያስደነግጥሃል፤

የሰው ደም አፍሰሃልና፤

አገሮችንና ከተሞችን በውስጣቸው የሚኖሩትንም ሁሉ አጥፍተሃልና።

18“የሰው እጅ የቀረጸው ጣዖት፣

ሐሰትንም የሚናገር ምስል ምን ፋይዳ አለው?

ሠሪው በገዛ እጁ ሥራ ይታመናልና፣

መናገር የማይችሉ ጣዖታትን ይሠራልና።

19ዕንጨቱን፣ ‘ንቃ!’

ሕይወት የሌለውንም ድንጋይ፣ ‘ተነሣ!’ ለሚል ወዮለት፤

በውኑ ማስተማር ይችላልን?

እነሆ፤ በወርቅና በብር ተለብጦአል፤

እስትንፋስም የለውም።

20እግዚአብሔር ግን በተቀደሰ መቅደሱ አለ፣

ምድር ሁሉ በፊቱ ጸጥ ትበል።

Habakkuk 2:1-20

1I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.2.1 tower: Heb. fenced place2.1 unto me: or, in me2.1 when…: or, when I am argued with: Heb. upon my reproof, or, arguing 2And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. 3For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. 4Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

5¶ Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people:2.5 Yea…: or, How much more 6Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a taunting proverb against him, and say, Woe to him that increaseth that which is not his! how long? and to him that ladeth himself with thick clay!2.6 Woe…: or, Ho, he 7Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee, and awake that shall vex thee, and thou shalt be for booties unto them? 8Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil thee; because of men’s blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein.2.8 blood: Heb. bloods

9¶ Woe to him that coveteth an evil covetousness to his house, that he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from the power of evil!2.9 coveteth…: or, gaineth and evil gain2.9 power…: Heb. palm of the hand 10Thou hast consulted shame to thy house by cutting off many people, and hast sinned against thy soul. 11For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and the beam out of the timber shall answer it.2.11 beam: or, piece, or, fastening2.11 answer it: or, witness against it

12¶ Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood, and stablisheth a city by iniquity!2.12 blood: Heb. bloods 13Behold, is it not of the LORD of hosts that the people shall labour in the very fire, and the people shall weary themselves for very vanity?2.13 for…: or, in vain? 14For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.2.14 with…: or, by knowing the glory

15¶ Woe unto him that giveth his neighbour drink, that puttest thy bottle to him, and makest him drunken also, that thou mayest look on their nakedness! 16Thou art filled with shame for glory: drink thou also, and let thy foreskin be uncovered: the cup of the LORD’s right hand shall be turned unto thee, and shameful spewing shall be on thy glory.2.16 with…: or, more with shame than with glory 17For the violence of Lebanon shall cover thee, and the spoil of beasts, which made them afraid, because of men’s blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein.

18¶ What profiteth the graven image that the maker thereof hath graven it; the molten image, and a teacher of lies, that the maker of his work trusteth therein, to make dumb idols?2.18 maker of…: Heb. fashioner of his fashion 19Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it. 20But the LORD is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.2.20 let…: Heb. be silent all the earth before him
