ዘፍጥረት 35:1-29

ያዕቆብ ወደ ቤቴል ተመለሰ

1እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ያዕቆብን፣ “ተነሥና ወደ ቤቴል ውጣ፤ እዚያም ተቀመጥ፤ ከወንድምህ ከዔሳው ሸሽተህ በሄድህ ጊዜ ለተገለጠልህ አምላክ (ኤል) በዚያ መሠዊያ ሥራ” አለው።

2ስለዚህም ያዕቆብ ለቤቱ ሰዎችና አብረውት ለነበሩት ሁሉ እንዲህ አላቸው፤ “በእናንተ ዘንድ ያሉትን ባዕዳን አማልክት አስወግዱ፤ ሰውነታችሁን አንጹ፤ ልብሳችሁንም ለውጡ። 3ተነሥተን ወደ ቤቴል እንውጣ፤ እዚያም በመከራዬ ጊዜ ለሰማኝ፣ በሄድሁበትም ስፍራ ሁሉ ላልተለየኝ አምላክ (ኤል) መሠዊያ እሠራለሁ።” 4ስለዚህ በእነርሱ ዘንድ የነበሩትን ባዕዳን አማልክት ሰብስበው፣ የጆሮ ጒትቾቻቸውን አውልቀው ለያዕቆብ ሰጡት። ያዕቆብም ወስዶ ሴኬም አጠገብ ካለው ወርካ ዛፍ ሥር ቀበራቸው። 5ያንንም ቦታ ለቀው ሄዱ፤ እግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም) በዙሪያቸው በነበሩት ከተሞች ሁሉ ላይ ፍርሀትና ድንጋጤ ስለ ለቀቀባቸው ያሳደዳቸው አልነበረም።

6ያዕቆብና አብረውት የነበሩት ሰዎች ሁሉ፣ በከነዓን ወደምትገኘው፣ ቤቴል ወደተባለችው ወደ ሎዛ ደረሱ። 7ያዕቆብም በዚያ ስፍራ መሠዊያ ሠርቶ፣ ስሙን ኤል-ቤቴል35፥7 ኤል-ቤቴል ማለት የቤቴል አምላክ ማለት ነው። አለው፤ ምክንያቱም ከወንድሙ ሸሽቶ በሄደ ጊዜ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) የተገለጠለት በዚህ ቦታ ነበር።

8በዚህ ጊዜ የርብቃ ሞግዚት ዲቦራ ሞተች፤ ከቤቴል ዝቅ ብሎ በሚገኘው የዋርካ ዛፍ ሥር ተቀበረች። ከዚህ የተነሣም ያ ቦታ አሎንባኩት35፥8 አሎንባኩት ማለት የለቅሶ ዋርካ ማለት ነው። ተባለ።

9ያዕቆብ ከሰሜን ምዕራብ መስጴጦምያ ከተመለሰ በኋላ፣ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ለያዕቆብ ዳግመኛ ተገለጠለት፤ ባረከውም። 10እግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም)፣ “እስካሁን ስምህ ያዕቆብ35፥10 ያዕቆብ ማለት ተረከዝ ይይዛል ማለት ነው፤ በምሳሌያዊ አገላለጽ ያታልላል ማለት ነው። ነበረ፤ ከእንግዲህ ያዕቆብ ተብለህ አትጠራም፤ ነገር ግን ስምህ እስራኤል35፥10 እስራኤል ማለት ከእግዚአብሔር ጋር ታገለ ማለት ነው። ይባላል” አለው።

ስለዚህም እስራኤል ብሎ ጠራው።

11ደግሞም እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ያዕቆብን እንዲህ አለው፤ “እኔ ሁሉን ማድረግ የሚችል35፥11 በዕብራይስጥ ኤልሻዳይ ማለት ነው። አምላክ ነኝ፤ ብዛ ተባዛ፤ ሕዝብና የሕዝቦች ማኅበር ከአንተ ይወጣሉ፤ ነገሥታትም ከአብራክህ ይከፈላሉ። 12ለአብርሃምና ለይስሐቅ የሰጠኋትን ምድር ለአንተ እሰጥሃለሁ፤ ከአንተም በኋላ ይህችኑ ምድር ለዘርህ እሰጣለሁ።” 13እግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም) ከእርሱ ጋር ከተነጋገረበት ስፍራ ወደ ላይ ወጣ።

14ያዕቆብ እግዚእብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ከእርሱ ጋር በተነጋገረበት ስፍራ የድንጋይ ሐውልት አቆመ፤ በሐውልቱ ላይ የመጠጥ ቍርባን አፈሰሰ፤ ዘይትም አፈሰሰበት። 15ያዕቆብም፣ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ከእርሱ ጋር የተነጋገረበትን ስፍራ ቤቴል35፥15 ቤቴል ማለት የእግዚአብሔር ቤት ማለት ነው። ብሎ ጠራው።

የራሔልና የይስሐቅ መሞት

35፥23-26 ተጓ ምብ – 1ዜና 2፥1-2

16ከዚያም ከቤቴል ተነሥተው ሄዱ፤ ኤፍራታ ለመድረስ ጥቂት ሲቀራቸው ራሔልን ምጥ ያዛት፤ ምጡም ጠናባት። 17ምጡ አስጨንቆአት ሳለ፣ አዋላጇ፣ “አይዞሽ አትፍሪ፤ ሌላ ወንድ ልጅ ልትገላገይ ነው” አለቻት። 18እርሷ ግን ሕይወቷ ልታልፍ በማጣጣር ላይ ሳለች፣ ልጇን ቤንኦኒ35፥18 ቤንኦኒ ማለት የመከራዬ ልጅ ማለት ነው። አለችው፤ አባቱ ግን ብንያም35፥18 ብንያም ማለት የቀኜ ልጅ ማለት ነው። አለው።

19ራሔልም ሞተች፤ ወደ ኤፍራታ በሚወስደው መንገድ በቤተልሔም ተቀበረች። 20ያዕቆብም በራሔል መቃብር ላይ ሐውልት አቆመ፤ እስከ ዛሬም የራሔል መቃብር ምልክት ይኸው ሐውልት ነው።

21እስራኤልም ጒዞውን በመቀጠል ከጋዴር ወንዝ ባሻገር ድንኳኑን ተከለ። 22እስራኤልም በዚያ ምድር ሳለ፣ ሮቤል ከአባቱ ቁባት ከባላ ጋር ተኛ፤ እስራኤልም ድርጊቱን ሰማ።

ያዕቆብ ዐሥራ ሁለት ልጆች ነበሩት፤ እነርሱም፦

23የልያ ልጆች፦

የያዕቆብ የበኵር ልጅ ሮቤል፣

ስምዖን፣ ሌዊ፣ ይሁዳ፣ ይሳኮር፣ ዛብሎን፤

24የራሔል ልጆች፦

ዮሴፍ፣ ብንያም፤

25የራሔል አገልጋይ የባላ ልጆች፦

ዳን፣ ንፍታሌም፤

26የልያ አገልጋይ የዘለፋ ልጆች፦

ጋድ፣ አሴር ናቸው።

እነዚህ ያዕቆብ በሰሜን ምዕራብ መስጴጦምያ ሳለ የተወለዱለት ወንዶች ልጆች ነበሩ።

27ያዕቆብ አባቱ ወዳለበት ወደ መምሬ መጣ፤ አብርሃምና ይስሐቅ የኖሩባት፣ ቂርያት አርባቅ ወይም ኬብሮን የተባለችው ቦታ ናት። 28ይስሐቅ መቶ ሰማንያ ዓመት ኖረ፤ 29አርጅቶ፣ ዕድሜ ጠግቦ ሞተ፤ ወደ ወገኖቹ ተሰበሰበ፤ ልጆቹም ዔሳውና ያዕቆብ ቀበሩት።

King James Version

Genesis 35:1-29

1And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Beth-el, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother. 2Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments: 3And let us arise, and go up to Beth-el; and I will make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went. 4And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem. 5And they journeyed: and the terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob.

6¶ So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of Canaan, that is, Beth-el, he and all the people that were with him. 7And he built there an altar, and called the place El-beth-el: because there God appeared unto him, when he fled from the face of his brother.35.7 El-beth-el: that is, The God of Beth-el 8But Deborah Rebekah’s nurse died, and she was buried beneath Beth-el under an oak: and the name of it was called Allon-bachuth.35.8 Allon-bachuth: that is, The oak of weeping

9¶ And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of Padan-aram, and blessed him. 10And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel. 11And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins; 12And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land. 13And God went up from him in the place where he talked with him. 14And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he talked with him, even a pillar of stone: and he poured a drink offering thereon, and he poured oil thereon. 15And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him, Beth-el.

16¶ And they journeyed from Beth-el; and there was but a little way to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour.35.16 a little…: Heb. a little piece of ground 17And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the midwife said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also. 18And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died) that she called his name Ben-oni: but his father called him Benjamin.35.18 Ben-oni: that is, The son of my sorrow35.18 Benjamin: that is, The son of the right hand 19And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is Beth-lehem. 20And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel’s grave unto this day.

21¶ And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Edar. 22And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father’s concubine: and Israel heard it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve: 23The sons of Leah; Reuben, Jacob’s firstborn, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun: 24The sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin: 25And the sons of Bilhah, Rachel’s handmaid; Dan, and Naphtali: 26And the sons of Zilpah, Leah’s handmaid; Gad, and Asher: these are the sons of Jacob, which were born to him in Padan-aram.

27¶ And Jacob came unto Isaac his father unto Mamre, unto the city of Arbah, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac sojourned. 28And the days of Isaac were an hundred and fourscore years. 29And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto his people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.
