Kumbukumbu 1:1-46

Amri Ya Kuondoka Mlima Horebu

11:1 Hes 13:29; Kum 4:46; 2:8; 3:17; Yos 3:16; 8:14; 11:2; Eze 47:8; Hes 10:12Haya ni maneno Mose aliyoyasema kwa Israeli yote jangwani mashariki ya Yordani, ambayo iko Araba, inayokabiliana na Sufu, kati ya Parani na Tofeli, Labani, Haserothi na Dizahabu. 21:2 Kut 3:1; Mwa 14:7; Kum 2:14; 9:23; Yos 15:3; Hes 24:18; 1Fal 3:8; 2Kor 11:28(Ni mwendo wa siku kumi na moja kutoka Horebu kwa njia ya Mlima Seiri mpaka Kadesh-Barnea.)

31:3 Hes 14:33; 32:13; Kum 8:2; Ebr 3:7-9; Mwa 50:3; Kum 34:8; Yos 4:19; Kum 4:1-2Katika mwaka wa arobaini, siku ya kwanza ya mwezi wa kumi na moja, Mose aliwatangazia Waisraeli yale yote Bwana aliyomwamuru kuwahusu. 41:4 Hes 21:21-26; Mwa 10:16; 14:17; Hes 21:25; 21:33-35; Kum 3:10; Yos 9:10; 12:4; 1Nya 11:44Hii ilikuwa baada ya kumshinda Sihoni mfalme wa Waamori, ambaye alitawala Heshboni, na pia huko Edrei alikuwa amemshinda Ogu mfalme wa Bashani, ambaye alitawala huko Ashtarothi. 51:5 Hes 21:11Huko mashariki ya Yordani katika nchi ya Moabu, Mose alianza kuielezea sheria hii, akisema:

61:6 Hes 10:13; Kut 3:1; Kum 2:3Bwana Mungu wetu alisema nasi huko Horebu, “Mmekaa vya kutosha katika mlima huu. 71:7 Kum 2:24; 7:1; Yos 10:5; Hes 21:1; Yos 11:16; 12:8; 2Sam 24:7; Mwa 10:18; Kum 11:24; Mwa 2:14Vunjeni kambi, msonge mbele kuelekea nchi ya vilima ya Waamori; nendeni kwa watu wote ambao ni majirani wa Araba, katika milima, upande wa magharibi chini ya vilima, katika Negebu na kandokando ya pwani, mpaka nchi ya Wakanaani hadi Lebanoni, na kufika mto mkubwa Frati. 81:8 Yos 23:13; Hes 34:2; Kut 13:11; Hes 14:23; Ebr 6:13-14Tazama, nimewapa ninyi nchi hii. Ingieni mkaimiliki nchi ambayo Bwana aliapa kuwa angaliwapa baba zenu, Abrahamu, Isaki na Yakobo, pamoja na vizazi vyao baada yao.”

Uteuzi Wa Viongozi

(Kutoka 18:13-27)

91:9 Hes 11:14; Za 30:4; Kut 18:18Wakati ule niliwaambia, “Ninyi mmekuwa mzigo mzito sana kwangu kuwachukua peke yangu. 101:10 Eze 16:7; Kum 7:13; Mwa 15:5; Isa 51:2; 60:22; Eze 33:24; Mwa 22:17; Hes 10:36Bwana Mungu wenu ameongeza hesabu yenu, hivi kwamba leo ninyi ni wengi kama nyota za angani. 111:11 Kut 32:13; 2Sam 24:3; 1Nya 21:3Naye Bwana, Mungu wa baba zenu na awaongeze mara elfu na kuwabariki kama alivyoahidi! 121:12 Kut 5:22; 18:18Lakini mimi nitawezaje kubeba matatizo yenu, na mizigo yenu, na magomvi yenu peke yangu? 131:13 Mwa 47:6; 1Chagueni baadhi ya watu wenye hekima, wenye ufahamu na wanaoheshimika kutoka kila kabila lenu, nami nitawaweka juu yenu.”

14Mlinijibu, “Shauri ulilolitoa ni zuri.”

151:15 Kut 18:25; 5:14; Hes 11:16; Yos 1:10; 3:2; Mwa 47:6; Hes 31:14; 1Sam 8:12; 22:7; 1Fal 14:27; Hes 1:4Kwa hiyo niliwachukua wanaume viongozi wa makabila yenu, wenye hekima na wanaoheshimika, nami nikawateua wawe na mamlaka juu yenu kama majemadari wa maelfu, wa mamia, wa hamsini, na wa makumi, na kama maafisa wa makabila. 161:16 1Fal 3:9; Za 72:1; Mit 2:9; Mwa 31:37; Yn 7:24; Kut 12:19; 22:21Nami wakati ule nikawaagiza waamuzi wenu: Sikilizeni magomvi kati ya ndugu zenu na mwamue kwa haki, hata kama shauri ni kati ya ndugu wa Kiisraeli, au kati ya mmoja wa ndugu wa Kiisraeli na mgeni. 171:17 Kut 18:16; Law 19:15; Mdo 10:34; Yak 2:1; Mit 29:25; Kut 18:26Msionyeshe upendeleo katika maamuzi; wasikilizeni wote sawasawa, wadogo kwa wakubwa. Msimwogope mtu yeyote, kwa kuwa hukumu ni ya Mungu. Mniletee mimi shauri lolote lililo gumu sana kwenu, nami nitalisikiliza. 181:18 Mwa 39:11Nami wakati ule niliwaambia kila kitu ambacho mngefanya.

Wapelelezi Wanatumwa

(Hesabu 13:1-33)

191:19 Kum 2:7; 8:15; 32:10; Za 136:16; Yer 2:2-6; Hos 13:5; Hes 13:26Kisha, kama Bwana Mungu wetu alivyotuamuru, tuliondoka kutoka Horebu na kwenda kuelekea nchi ya vilima ya Waamori, kupitia jangwa lile kubwa lote la kutisha, lile mliloliona, nasi tukafika Kadesh-Barnea. 20Kisha niliwaambia, “Mmefika katika nchi ya vilima ya Waamori, ambayo Bwana Mungu wetu anatupa. 211:21 Kum 29:23; Hes 14:9; Yos 1:6-9, 18; 2Sam 10:12; Za 27:14; Kum 7:18; Yos 8:1; 10:8Tazama, Bwana Mungu wenu amewapa nchi. Pandeni mkaimiliki kama Bwana, Mungu wa baba zenu, alivyowaambia. Msiogope, wala msikate tamaa.”

221:22 Hes 13:1-3; Mwa 42:9Ndipo ninyi nyote mkanijia na kusema, “Tupeleke watu watutangulie kuipeleleza nchi kwa ajili yetu, na kutuletea taarifa kuhusu njia tutakayopita, na miji tutakayoiendea.”

231:23 Hes 13:1-3Wazo hilo lilionekana zuri kwangu; kwa hiyo niliwachagua watu wenu kumi na wawili, mwanaume mmoja kutoka kila kabila. 241:24 Hes 13:21-25; 32:9Waliondoka na kukwea katika nchi ya vilima, wakafika katika Bonde la Eshkoli na kuipeleleza. 251:25 Hes 13:27; 14:7; Yos 1:2Wakachukua baadhi ya matunda ya nchi, wakatuletea na kutuarifu, “Ni nchi nzuri ambayo Bwana Mungu wetu anatupa.”

Uasi Dhidi Ya Bwana

(Hesabu 14:20-45)

261:26 Hes 14:1-4; 14:9; Za 106:24Lakini hamkuwa tayari kukwea, mkaasi dhidi ya amri ya Bwana Mungu wenu. 271:27 Kum 9:28; Za 106:25Mkanungʼunika ndani ya mahema yenu na kusema, “Bwana anatuchukia, kwa hiyo alitutoa Misri ili kututia mikononi mwa Waamori kutuangamiza. 281:28 Hes 13:32-33; Kum 9:1-3Twende wapi? Ndugu zetu wametufanya kufa moyo. Wanasema, ‘Watu wa huko wana nguvu zaidi na ni warefu kuliko sisi tulivyo; miji ni mikubwa, yenye kuta zilizofika juu angani. Zaidi ya hayo, tumewaona Waanaki huko.’ ”

291:29 Kum 3:22; 20:3; Neh 4:14; Kum 7:18; 20:1; 31:6Ndipo nikawaambia, “Msihofu, wala msiwaogope. 301:30 Kut 14:14; Neh 4:20Bwana Mungu wenu anayewatangulia, atawapigania, kama alivyofanya kwa ajili yenu huko Misri, mbele ya macho yenu hasa, 311:31 Kut 19:4; Kum 32:10-12; Za 28:9; Isa 46:3-4; 63:9; Hos 11:3; Mdo 13:18; Yer 31:32na pia huko jangwani. Huko mliona jinsi Bwana Mungu wenu alivyowachukua, kama baba amchukuavyo mwanawe, katika njia yote mliyoiendea mpaka mkafika mahali hapa.”

321:32 Hes 14:11; Kum 9:23; Za 78:22; 106:24; Sef 3:2; Ebr 3:19; Yud 5Pamoja na hili, hamkumtegemea Bwana Mungu wenu, 331:33 Kut 13:21; Hes 9:15-23; Neh 9:12; 9:12; Za 78:14; Hes 10:33ambaye aliwatangulia katika safari yenu, kwa moto usiku na kwa wingu mchana, kuwatafutia mahali penu pa kupiga kambi na kuwaonyesha njia mtakayoiendea.

341:34 Hes 11:1; 32:14; 14:23; 28:30; Eze 20:15; Ebr 3:11Wakati Bwana aliposikia lile mlilosema, alikasirika, akaapa, akasema: 351:35 Hes 14:29; 14:22; Za 95:11“Hakuna mtu wa kizazi hiki kiovu atakayeona nchi nzuri niliyoapa kuwapa baba zenu, 361:36 Hes 13:6; 14:24isipokuwa Kalebu mwana wa Yefune. Yeye ataiona, nami nitampa yeye na wazao wake nchi aliyoikanyaga kwa miguu, kwa sababu alimfuata Bwana kwa moyo wote.”

371:37 Za 106:32; Hes 27:13, 14; Kum 3:26; 4:21; 34:4Kwa sababu yenu Bwana pia alinikasirikia mimi, akasema, “Hutaingia hiyo nchi pia. 381:38 Hes 11:28; Kum 31:7; 3:28; Yos 11:23; Za 78:55; 136:21Lakini msaidizi wako, Yoshua mwana wa Nuni, ataingia. Mtie moyo, kwa sababu atawaongoza Waisraeli kuirithi hiyo nchi. 391:39 Hes 14:3; Isa 7:15-16Wale watoto ambao mliwasema wangelichukuliwa mateka, yaani watoto wenu ambao bado hawajui jema na baya, wataingia katika nchi. Nitawapa hiyo nchi, nao wataimiliki. 401:40 Kut 14:27; Amu 11:16Bali ninyi geukeni, mwondoke kuelekea jangwani kwa kufuata njia ya Bahari ya Shamu.”

41Ndipo mkanijibu, “Tumemtenda Bwana dhambi. Tutakwenda kupigana, kama Bwana Mungu wetu alivyotuamuru.” Hivyo kila mmoja wenu akachukua silaha zake, huku mkifikiri kuwa ni rahisi kukwea katika nchi ya vilima.

421:42 Hes 14:41-43Lakini Bwana aliniambia, “Waambie, ‘Msipande kupigana, kwa sababu sitakuwa pamoja nanyi. Mtashindwa na adui zenu.’ ”

431:43 Hes 14:44Hivyo niliwaambia, lakini hamkutaka kusikia. Mliasi dhidi ya amri ya Bwana, na katika kiburi chenu mlienda katika nchi ya vilima. 441:44 Za 118:12; Hes 28:18; 14:45; Kum 28:25; 32:30; Isa 7:18Waamori ambao waliishi katika vilima hivyo waliinuka dhidi yenu, wakawafukuza kama kundi la nyuki wakiwapiga njia yote ya Seiri mpaka Horma. 451:45 Hes 14:1; Ay 27:9; 35:13; Za 18:41; 66:18; Mit 1:28; Isa 1:15; Yer 14:12; Mao 3:8; Mik 3:4; Yn 9:31; Za 28:1; 39:12; Mit 28:9Mlirudi na kulia mbele za Bwana, lakini Mungu hakusikiliza kilio chenu, wala hakuwajali. 461:46 Hes 20:1; 13:25; Amu 11:27Hivyo mlikaa Kadeshi kwa siku nyingi, kwa muda ule wote mliokaa huko.

King James Version

Deuteronomy 1:1-46

1These be the words which Moses spake unto all Israel on this side Jordan in the wilderness, in the plain over against the Red sea, between Paran, and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth, and Dizahab.1.1 the Red…: or, Zuph 2(There are eleven days’ journey from Horeb by the way of mount Seir unto Kadesh-barnea.) 3And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spake unto the children of Israel, according unto all that the LORD had given him in commandment unto them; 4After he had slain Sihon the king of the Amorites, which dwelt in Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, which dwelt at Astaroth in Edrei: 5On this side Jordan, in the land of Moab, began Moses to declare this law, saying, 6The LORD our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt long enough in this mount: 7Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the mount of the Amorites, and unto all the places nigh thereunto, in the plain, in the hills, and in the vale, and in the south, and by the sea side, to the land of the Canaanites, and unto Lebanon, unto the great river, the river Euphrates.1.7 all…: Heb. all his neighbours 8Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.1.8 set: Heb. given

9¶ And I spake unto you at that time, saying, I am not able to bear you myself alone: 10The LORD your God hath multiplied you, and, behold, ye are this day as the stars of heaven for multitude. 11(The LORD God of your fathers make you a thousand times so many more as ye are, and bless you, as he hath promised you!) 12How can I myself alone bear your cumbrance, and your burden, and your strife? 13Take you wise men, and understanding, and known among your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you.1.13 Take: Heb. Give 14And ye answered me, and said, The thing which thou hast spoken is good for us to do. 15So I took the chief of your tribes, wise men, and known, and made them heads over you, captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, and captains over fifties, and captains over tens, and officers among your tribes.1.15 made: Heb. gave 16And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him. 17Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.1.17 respect…: Heb. acknowledge faces 18And I commanded you at that time all the things which ye should do.

19¶ And when we departed from Horeb, we went through all that great and terrible wilderness, which ye saw by the way of the mountain of the Amorites, as the LORD our God commanded us; and we came to Kadesh-barnea. 20And I said unto you, Ye are come unto the mountain of the Amorites, which the LORD our God doth give unto us. 21Behold, the LORD thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged.

22¶ And ye came near unto me every one of you, and said, We will send men before us, and they shall search us out the land, and bring us word again by what way we must go up, and into what cities we shall come. 23And the saying pleased me well: and I took twelve men of you, one of a tribe: 24And they turned and went up into the mountain, and came unto the valley of Eshcol, and searched it out. 25And they took of the fruit of the land in their hands, and brought it down unto us, and brought us word again, and said, It is a good land which the LORD our God doth give us. 26Notwithstanding ye would not go up, but rebelled against the commandment of the LORD your God: 27And ye murmured in your tents, and said, Because the LORD hated us, he hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us. 28Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people is greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakims there.1.28 discouraged: Heb. melted 29Then I said unto you, Dread not, neither be afraid of them. 30The LORD your God which goeth before you, he shall fight for you, according to all that he did for you in Egypt before your eyes; 31And in the wilderness, where thou hast seen how that the LORD thy God bare thee, as a man doth bear his son, in all the way that ye went, until ye came into this place. 32Yet in this thing ye did not believe the LORD your God, 33Who went in the way before you, to search you out a place to pitch your tents in, in fire by night, to shew you by what way ye should go, and in a cloud by day. 34And the LORD heard the voice of your words, and was wroth, and sware, saying, 35Surely there shall not one of these men of this evil generation see that good land, which I sware to give unto your fathers, 36Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh; he shall see it, and to him will I give the land that he hath trodden upon, and to his children, because he hath wholly followed the LORD.1.36 wholly…: Heb. fulfilled to go after 37Also the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, saying, Thou also shalt not go in thither. 38But Joshua the son of Nun, which standeth before thee, he shall go in thither: encourage him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit it. 39Moreover your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, and your children, which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil, they shall go in thither, and unto them will I give it, and they shall possess it. 40But as for you, turn you, and take your journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea. 41Then ye answered and said unto me, We have sinned against the LORD, we will go up and fight, according to all that the LORD our God commanded us. And when ye had girded on every man his weapons of war, ye were ready to go up into the hill. 42And the LORD said unto me, Say unto them, Go not up, neither fight; for I am not among you; lest ye be smitten before your enemies. 43So I spake unto you; and ye would not hear, but rebelled against the commandment of the LORD, and went presumptuously up into the hill.1.43 went…: Heb. ye were presumptuous, and went up 44And the Amorites, which dwelt in that mountain, came out against you, and chased you, as bees do, and destroyed you in Seir, even unto Hormah. 45And ye returned and wept before the LORD; but the LORD would not hearken to your voice, nor give ear unto you. 46So ye abode in Kadesh many days, according unto the days that ye abode there.
