Adebɔ Mfiase

1Mfiase no Onyankopɔn bɔɔ ɔsoro ne asase. 2Na asase yɛ basaa a na ɛda mpan, na sum kata bun no ani, na Onyankopɔn Honhom butuw nsu no ani.

3Onyankopɔn hyɛe se, “Ɛnyɛ hann,” na ɛyɛɛ hann. 4Onyankopɔn huu sɛ hann no ye, na ɔtew hann no fii sum no ho. 5Onyankopɔn frɛɛ hann no se, “adekyee,” na sum no nso se, “adesae.” Ade sae na ade kyee, da a edi kan ne no.

6Onyankopɔn kae se, “Nkyemu mmra nsu no ntam, na ɛnkyekyɛ nsu no mu.” 7Enti Onyankopɔn yɛɛ nkyɛmu no, de kyekyɛɛ nsu a ɛwɔ nkyɛmu no ase fii nsu a ɛwɔ nkyɛmu no atifi no mu. Na ɛyɛɛ saa. 8Onyankopɔn too atifi nkyɛmu no din wim. Na ade sae, na ade kyee; eyi ne da a ɛto so abien.

9Na Onyankopɔn kae se, “Nsu a ɛwɔ nkyɛmu no ase no ano mmoa wɔ faako, na asase kesee nna ne ho adi.” Na ɛyɛɛ saa. 10Onyankopɔn too beae kesee ne din “asase.” Na nsu a ɛboaa ne ho ano no nso, ɔtoo no din “ɛpo.” Onyankopɔn hui sɛ eye.

11Afei Onyankopɔn kae se, “Afifide mfifi wɔ asase so; afifide a ɛsow aba, nnuaba ahorow a ɛsow aba ne nea nʼaba hyehyɛ mu nyinaa mfifi wɔ asase so.” Na ɛyɛɛ saa. 12Afifide a ɛsow aba ne nnua fifii wɔ asase so na nʼaba no nyin yɛɛ nnua ne afifide sɛ ne sɛso. Onyankopɔn hui sɛ eye. 13Na ade sae, na ade kyee. Eyi ne da a ɛto so abiɛsa.

14Na Onyankopɔn kae se, “Hann mmra nkyɛmu a ɛwɔ wim no mu, na ɛmmɛpae adekyee ne adesae mu. Na ɛmmɛyɛ nnyinaso mma bere nkyekyɛmu, nna ne mfe, 15na ɛmma hann mmra nkyɛmu a ɛwɔ wim no mu, na ahyerɛn wɔ asase so.” Na ɛyɛɛ saa. 16Onyankopɔn yɛɛ akanea akɛse abien a ɛyɛ owia ne ɔsram sɛ, owia no nni adekyee so na ɔsram no nni anadwo so. Ɔbɔɔ nsoromma nso. 17Onyankopɔn de akanea akɛse abien yi sii nkyɛmu a ɛwɔ wim no mu sɛ ɛnhyerɛn wɔ asase so, 18na wonni adekyee ne adesae no so, na ɛntew hann no mfi sum no ho. Na Onyankopɔn hui sɛ eye. 19Na ade sae, na ade kyee. Da a ɛto so anan ne no.

20Onyankopɔn kae se, “Abɔde a nkwa wɔ mu nhyɛ nsu no ma, na nnomaa ntu mfa asase ne nkyɛmu a ɛwɔ wim no so.” 21Enti Onyankopɔn bɔɔ po mu mmoa akɛse ne mmoa ahorow nyinaa a wɔwɔ nkwa na wɔkeka wɔn ho ne nnomaa ahorow nyinaa. Na Onyankopɔn hui sɛ eye. 22Onyankopɔn hyiraa abɔde no nyinaa so, kae se, “Monwo na monyɛ bebree na monhyɛ po no mu nsu no ma, na nnomaa ase ntrɛw wɔ asase so.” 23Na ade sae, na ade kyee. Da a ɛto so anum ne no.

24Onyankopɔn kae se, “Abɔde a nkwa wɔ mu ahorow nyinaa ne wɔn sɛso, anantwi ne mmoa a wɔwea wɔn afuru so ne mmoa ahorow a wɔyɛ keka a wɔwɔ asase so nyinaa mmra asase so.” Na ɛyɛɛ saa. 25Onyankopɔn bɔɔ mmoa ahorow, anantwi ahorow ne wɔn sɛso ne mmoa a wɔwea wɔn afuru so ne wɔn sɛso. Na Onyankopɔn hui sɛ eye.

26Onyankopɔn kae se, “Momma yɛmmɔ onipa sɛ yɛn sɛso, na onni po mu mpataa, wim nnomaa, anantwi ne mmoa a wɔyɛ keka ne biribiara a ɛwea nʼafuru so wɔ asase so no so.”

27Enti Onyankopɔn bɔɔ onipa sɛ ne sɛso;

Onyankopɔn sɛso so na ɔbɔɔ wɔn;

ɔbarima ne ɔbea na ɔbɔɔ wɔn.

28Onyankopɔn hyiraa wɔn, ka kyerɛɛ wɔn se, “Monwo na monyɛ asase so ma, na munni biribiara so. Munni po mu mpataa ne wim nnomaa ne abɔde biara a nkwa wɔ mu a ɛwɔ asase so no nyinaa so.”

29Afei Onyankopɔn kae se, “Mede asase so afifide a ɛsow aba nyinaa, afifide biara a aba hyɛ ne nnuaba mu wɔ asase yi so nyinaa hyɛ wo nsa. Ɛbɛyɛ wʼaduan. 30Mede nhabammono nyinaa ama aboa biara a ɔwɔ asase so, anomaa biara a ɔwɔ wim, biribiara a ɛwea nʼafuru so, biribiara a nkwa wɔ mu wɔ asase so sɛ wɔn aduan.” Na ɛyɛɛ saa.

31Onyankopɔn hwɛɛ nea wayɛ nyinaa huu sɛ ɛyɛ papa. Na ade sae, na ade kyee. Eyi ne da a ɛto so asia.

King James Version

Genesis 1:1-31

1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.1.4 the light from…: Heb. between the light and between the darkness 5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.1.5 And the evening…: Heb. And the evening was, and the morning was etc.

6¶ And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.1.6 firmament: Heb. expansion 7And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. 8And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.1.8 And the evening…: Heb. And the evening was, and the morning was etc.

9¶ And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. 11And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.1.11 grass: Heb. tender grass 12And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13And the evening and the morning were the third day.1.13 And the evening…: Heb. And the evening was, and the morning was etc.

14¶ And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:1.14 the day…: Heb. between the day and between the night 15And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.1.16 to rule the day…: Heb. for the rule of the day, etc. 17And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.1.19 And the evening…: Heb. And the evening was, and the morning was etc.

20And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.1.20 moving: or, creeping1.20 life: Heb. soul1.20 fowl…: Heb. let fowl fly1.20 open…: Heb. face of the firmament of heaven 21And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.1.23 And the evening…: Heb. And the evening was, and the morning was etc.

24¶ And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

26¶ And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.1.28 moveth: Heb. creepeth

29¶ And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.1.29 bearing…: Heb. seeding seed1.29 yielding…: Heb. seeding seed 30And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.1.30 life: Heb. a living soul 31And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.1.31 And the evening…: Heb. And the evening was, and the morning was etc.
