ዘፍጥረት 9:1-29

እግዚአብሔር ከኖኅ ጋር የገባው ኪዳን

1እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ኖኅንና ልጆቹን እንዲህ ሲል ባረካቸው፤ “ብዙ ተባዙ፤ ምድርንም ሙሏት፤ 2አስፈሪነታችሁና አስደንጋ ጭነታችሁ፦ በዱር አራዊት፣ በሰማይ አዕዋፍ፣ በደረት በሚሳቡ ተንቀሳቃሽ ፍጡሮችና በባሕር ዓሦች ሁሉ ላይ ይሁን፤ በእጃችሁ ተሰጥተዋል። 3ሕያውና ተንቀሳቃሽ ፍጡር ሁሉ ምግብ ይሁናችሁ፤ ለምለሙን ዕፀዋት እንደ ሰጠኋችሁ፣ አሁን ደግሞ ሁሉን ሰጠኋችሁ።

4“ነገር ግን ሕይወቱ፣ ማለት ደሙ ገና በውስጡ ያለበትን ሥጋ አትብሉ። 5ሰውን የገደለ ሁሉ ስለሟቹ ደም ተጠያቂ ነው፤ የሟቹን ሰው ደም ከገዳዩ፣ ከእንስሳም ይሁን ከሰው እሻለሁ።

6“የሰውን ደም የሚያፈስ ሁሉ፣

ደሙ በሰው እጅ ይፈሳል፤

በእግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) አምሳል፣

እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ሰውን ሠርቶታልና።

7እናንተ ግን ብዙ ተባዙ፤ ዘራችሁ በምድር ላይ ይብዛ፤ ይንሠራፋ።”

8እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ኖኅንና አብረውት ያሉትን ልጆቹን እንዲህ አላቸው፤ 9“እነሆ፤ ከእናንተና ከእናንተ በኋላ ከሚመጣው ዘራችሁ ጋር ኪዳኔን እመሠርታለሁ፤ 10እንዲሁም ከእናንተ ጋር ከነበሩት ሕያዋን ፍጡራን ሁሉ፦ ከወፎች፣ ከቤት እንሰሳት፣ ከዱር እንስሳት፣ ከእናንተ ጋር ከመርከቧ ከወጡት በምድር ላይ ካሉት ሕያዋን ፍጡራን ሁሉ ጋር ኪዳን እገባለሁ። 11ከእንግዲህ ሕይወት ያለው ፍጡር ሁሉ በጥፋት ውሃ እንደማይጠፋ፣ ዳግመኛም ምድርን የሚያጠፋ ውሃ ከቶ እንደማይመጣ ከእናንተ ጋር ኪዳን እገባለሁ።”

12እግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም) እንዲህ አለ፤ በእኔና በእናንተ መካከል፣ ከእናንተም ጋር ካሉ ሕያዋን ፍጡራን ሁሉ ጋር ከሚመጣውም ትውልድ ሁሉ ጋር፣ የማደርገው የኪዳኑ ምልክት ይህ ነው፤ 13ቀስተ ደመናዬን በደመና ላይ አደርጋለሁ፤ ይህም በእኔና በምድር መካከል ለገባሁት ኪዳን ምልክት ይሆናል። 14ደመናን በምድር ላይ በጋረድሁና ቀስቴም በደመና ላይ በሚታይበት ጊዜ ሁሉ፣ 15ከእናንተና ከሕያዋን ፍጡራን ሁሉ ጋር የገባሁትን ኪዳን አስባለሁ፤ ሕይወት ያለውንም ሁሉ ያጠፋ ዘንድ፣ ከእንግዲህ የጥፋት ውሃ ከቶ አይመጣም። 16ቀስቱ በደመና ላይ ተገልጦ በማይበት ጊዜ ሁሉ፣ በእኔና በምድር ላይ ባሉ ሕያዋን ፍጡራን መካከል ያለውን ዘላለማዊ ኪዳን አስባለሁ።”

17ስለዚህ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ኖኅን፣ “ይህ በእኔና በምድር ላይ በሚኖሩ ሕያዋን ሁሉ መካከል የገባሁት ኪዳን ምልክት ነው” አለው።

የኖኅ ልጆች

18ከመርከቧ የወጡትም የኖኅ ልጆች ሴም፣ ካምና ያፌት ነበሩ፤ ካም የከነዓን አባት ነው። 19ሦስቱ የኖኅ ልጆች እነዚህ ሲሆኑ፣ በምድር ላይ የሚኖሩ ሕዝቦች ሁሉ የተገኙት ከእነዚሁ ነው።

20ኖኅ ገበሬ ነበረና ወይን ተከለ፤9፥20 ወይም የመጀመሪያ ነበር 21ከወይኑም ጠጅ ጠጥቶ ሰከረና በድንኳኑ ውስጥ ዕርቃኑን ተኛ። 22የከነዓን አባት፣ ካም የአባቱን ዕርቃነ ሥጋ አየ፤ ወደ ውጭም ወጥቶ ለሁለቱ ወንድሞቹ ነገራቸው። 23ሴምና ያፌት ግን ልብስ ወስደው በጫንቃቸው ላይ አደረጉና የአባታቸውን ዕርቃነ ሥጋ እንዳያዩ ፊታቸውን አዙረው የኋሊት በመሄድ የአባታቸውን ዕርቃነ ሥጋ ሸፈኑ።

24ኖኅ ከወይን ጠጁ ስካር ሲነቃ፣ ታናሽ ልጁ ያደረገበትን ዐወቀ፤ 25እንዲህም አለ፤

“ከነዓን የተረገመ ይሁን፤

ለወንድሞቹም፣ የባሪያ ባሪያ ይሁን።”

26ደግሞም፤

“የሴም አምላክ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም ያህዌ) ይባረክ፤

ከነዓንም የሴም9፥26 ወይም የእርሱ ባሪያ ይሁን ባሪያ ይሁን።”

27“እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) የያፌትን9፥27 ያፌት የሚለው ቃል መዘርጋት የሚል ትርጒም ካለው የዕብራይስጥ ቃል ጋር ተመሳሳይ ድምፅ አለው ግዛት ያስፋ፤

ያፌት በሴም ድንኳኖች ይኑር፤

ከነዓንም የእርሱ9፥27 ወይም የእነርሱ ባሪያ ይሁን” አለ።

28ኖኅ ከጥፋት ውሃ በኋላ 350 ዓመት ኖረ፤ 29ኖኅ በአጠቃላይ 950 ዓመት ኖሮ ሞተ።

King James Version

Genesis 9:1-29

1And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. 2And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. 3Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. 4But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. 5And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man. 6Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man. 7And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.

8¶ And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, 9And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; 10And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth. 11And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.

12And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. 14And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: 15And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. 17And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

18¶ And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.9.18 Canaan: Heb. Chenaan 19These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread. 20And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard: 21And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent. 22And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. 23And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness.

24And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. 25And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. 26And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.9.26 his servant: or, servant to them 27God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.9.27 enlarge: or, persuade

28¶ And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years. 29And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years: and he died.
