Isak Ware Rebeka

1Na Abraham anyin a ne mfe akɔ anim yiye. Awurade hyiraa no wɔ akwan ahorow nyinaa so. 2Da koro bi, Abraham ka kyerɛɛ ne somfo panyin a ɔhwɛ nʼagyapade nyinaa so no se, “Fa wo nsa ka me srɛ ase. 3Mepɛ sɛ woka Awurade a ɔyɛ ɔsoro ne asase Nyankopɔn ntam sɛ, worenware Kanaanfo a me ne wɔn te yi babea biara mma me babarima Isak. 4Na mmom, wobɛkɔ me man mu, mʼabusuafo nkyɛn, akɔware ɔbea abrɛ no.”

5Ɔsomfo no bisaa Abraham se, “Me wura, na sɛ ɛba sɛ ɔbea no ampene so sɛ ɔne me bɛba ɔman yi mu a, na mereyɛ no dɛn? Memfa wo babarima no nkɔ wo man no mu ana?”

6Abraham kae se, “Hwɛ yiye na woamfa me babarima no ankɔ hɔ da. 7Awurade, ɔsoro Nyankopɔn a ɔde me fi mʼagya fi ne mʼasase so baa ha na ɔkaa ntam hyɛɛ me bɔ se, ‘Mede saa asase yi bɛma wʼasefo no,’ ɔno ara na ɔbɛsoma ne bɔfo adi wʼanim akɔ, sɛnea ɛbɛyɛ a wubenya ɔyere afi hɔ ama me babarima no. 8Sɛ ɛba sɛ, ɔbea no ampene sɛ ɔne wo bɛba a, wo ntam a wokae no nkyekyere wo. Ɛnsɛ sɛ wode me babarima no kɔ hɔ.” 9Enti, ɔsomfo no de ne nsa kaa ne wura Abraham srɛ ase, kaa saa asɛm yi ho ntam.

10Na, ɔsomfo no faa ne wura yoma no mu du kɔe. Ɔrebɛkɔ no, ogyee ne wura Abraham nkyɛn nnepa ahorow bebree kaa ho. Ɔde nʼani kyerɛɛ Mesopotamia, koduu Nahor kurow mu. 11Oduu Nahor kurotia no, ɔmaa yoma no butubutuw abura bi a ɛwɔ hɔ no ho. Na onwini adwo a ɛyɛ bere a mmea bɛtow nsu wɔ abura no mu.

12Na ɔsomfo no bɔɔ mpae se, “Awurade, me wura Abraham Nyankopɔn, hu me wura Abraham mmɔbɔ, na boa me, na mʼakwantu yi nsi yiye. 13Hwɛ, migyina abura yi so, na kurow yi mu mmabaa rebɛtow nsu. 14Ma ɛmmra mu sɛ, ababaa biara a mɛka akyerɛ no se, ‘Mesrɛ wo, soɛ na ma me wo sukuruwa no mu nsu no bi nnom no,’ sɛ ɔka se, ‘Nom bi, na mɛma wo yoma no nso bi anom’ a, ɔnyɛ ababaa a woapaw no ama wʼakoa Isak. Ɛnam eyi so bɛma mahu sɛ, woahu me wura mmɔbɔ.”

15Ogu so rebɔ mpae no na Rebeka bae a ne sukuruwa si ne bati so. Saa Rebeka no yɛ Betuel ba. Betuel no nso yɛ Abraham nuabarima Nahor ne ne yere Milka babarima. 16Na Rebeka no yɛ ɔbabun a ne ho yɛ fɛ yiye. Na ɔbarima biara mfaa ne ho nkaa no da. Osian kɔɔ abura no so, kɔhyɛɛ ne sukuruwa no nsu ma, san bae.

17Ɔsomfo no de ahoɔhare kohyiaa Rebeka, ka kyerɛɛ no se, “Mesrɛ wo, hwie wo sukuruwa no mu nsu no kakra ma mennom.”

18Ntɛm ara, ɔsoɛɛ ne sukuruwa no kae se, “Me wura, gye bi nom.”

19Rebeka maa ɔsomfo no nsu no bi nom wiee no, ɔkae se, “Mɛsan akɔsaw nsu no bi abrɛ wo yoma no nyinaa nso anom.” 20Enti Rebeka de ahoɔhare hwiee ne nsu no guu anomee bi mu, san kɔsaw nsu a ɛbɛso yoma no nyinaa nom de bae. 21Ɔsomfo no hwɛɛ Rebeka komm, karii no pɛɛ sɛ ohu sɛ Awurade ama nʼakwantu no asi no yiye ana.

22Yoma no nom nsu no wiee no, ɔsomfo no yii sikakɔkɔɔ hwenemkaa a emu duru kari gram asia ne nkapo abien a ɛno nso mu duru yɛ gram ɔha dunan. 23Na obisae se, “Hena ba ne wo? Mesrɛ wo, yebenya nnabea wɔ wʼagya fi ama ade akye ana?”

24Rebeka buaa no se, “Betuel babea ne me. Me nananom ne Milka ne Nahor.” 25Ɔka kaa ho se, “Yɛwɔ sare ne mmoa aduan bebree ne baabi a mo nso mobɛda.”

26Na ɔsomfo no buu nkotodwe, sɔree Awurade Nyankopɔn se, 27“Nhyira nka Awurade, me wura Abraham Nyankopɔn, sɛ onnyaee nokwaredi ne ayamye a ɔyɛ ma me wura no. Me de, Awurade adi mʼanim wɔ mʼakwantu yi mu, de me abedu me wura abusuafo fi.”

28Rebeka tuu mmirika kɔkaa nsɛm a asisi no nyinaa kyerɛɛ ne na fifo. 29Na Rebeka wɔ nuabarima bi a ne din de Laban. Laban tee asɛm no, ɔde ahoɔhare kɔɔ ɔbarima no nkyɛn wɔ abura no so. 30Laban huu hwenemkaa no ne nkapo a egu ne nuabea no nsa no, na ɔtee asɛm a ɔbarima no ka kyerɛɛ Rebeka no, ɔkɔɔ ɔbarima no nkyɛn kohuu sɛ ogyina yoma no ho wɔ asubura no so. 31Laban ka kyerɛɛ ɔsomfo no se, “Bra, wo a Awurade ahyira wo.” Obisaa ɔsomfo no se, “Adɛn nti na wugyina kurotia ha? Masiesie wo nnabea ne baabi a yoma no nso bɛda.”

32Enti ɔsomfo no kɔɔ fie hɔ maa Laban yiyii nneɛma a ɛwɔ yoma no so no. Wɔmaa yoma no sare ne aduan, afei Laban maa ɔsomfo no ne nnipa a wɔka ne ho no nsu de hohoroo wɔn anan ho. 33Eyi akyi no, ɔtoo wɔn pon. Nanso ɔsomfo no kae se, “Merempɛ sɛ medidi, gye sɛ mabɔ mʼamanneɛ.”

Laban kae se, “Bɔ wʼamanneɛ ɛ.”

34Enti ɔsomfo no bɔɔ nʼamanneɛ se, “Meyɛ Abraham somfo. 35Awurade ahyira me wura bebree, ama wayɛ ɔdefo. Wama no nguan ne anantwi, dwetɛ ne sikakɔkɔɔ, nkoa ne mfenaa ne yoma ne mfurum. 36Bio, me wura yere Sara awo ɔbabarima ama no wɔ ne mmerewabere mu; Awurade na ɔde nea ɔwɔ nyinaa ama no. 37Me wura ma mekaa ntam se, ‘Worenware Kanaanfo a me ne wɔn te yi babea biara mma me babarima Isak. 38Na mmom, wobɛkɔ me man mu, mʼabusuafo nkyɛn, akɔware ɔbea wɔ hɔ abrɛ me babarima Isak.’

39“Na mibisaa me wura se, ‘Na sɛ ɛba sɛ, ɔbea no ampene so sɛ ɔne me bɛba ɔman yi mu a, na mereyɛ no dɛn?’

40“Me wura Abraham buae se, ‘Awurade a manantew nʼanim no bɛsoma ne bɔfo, adi wʼanim, sɛnea ɛbɛyɛ a, wʼakwantu no besi yiye, na woanya ɔyere ama me babarima afi mʼabusua mu a ɛyɛ mʼagya fi no mu. 41Afei, sɛ ɛba sɛ, woba mʼabusua mu, na sɛ wɔamfa ɔbea no amma wo a, wo ntam a wokae no renkyekyere wo.’

42“Mebaa asubura no so nnɛ no, mesrɛe sɛ, ‘Awurade, me wura Abraham Nyankopɔn, sɛ ɛyɛ wo pɛ a, ma akwantu yi nsi me yiye! 43Hwɛ, migyina abura yi so. Sɛ ababaa bi bɛtow nsu wɔ ha, na meka kyerɛ no se, “Mesrɛ wo, soɛ na ma me wo sukuruwa no mu nsu no kakra nnom” no, 44na sɛ ɔka se, “Nom bi, na mɛma wo yoma no nso bi anom” a, ɔnyɛ ababaa a Awurade apaw no ama me wura Abraham babarima Isak no.’

45“Ansa na mewie me koma mu mpaebɔ no, Rebeka puee a sukuruwa si ne bati so. Rebeka kɔɔ abura no so, kɔtow nsu, na meka kyerɛɛ no se, ‘Mesrɛ wo, ma me nsu no bi nnom.’

46“Ntɛm ara, ɔsoɛɛ ne sukuruwa no kae se, ‘Me wura, gye bi nom na mɛsan asaw nsu no bi abrɛ wo yoma no nyinaa nso anom.’ Enti menom nsu no bi, na ɔmaa yoma no nyinaa nso bi nomee.

47“Mibisaa no se, ‘Hena ba ne wo?’

“Rebeka buae se, ‘Betuel ba ne me. Me nenanom ne Milka ne Nahor.’

“Ɛhɔ ara na mede hwenemkaa no hyɛɛ ne hwenem, na mede nkapo no nso guu ne nsa. 48Afei, mebɔɔ me mu ase sɔree Awurade. Mekamfoo Awurade a ɔyɛ me wura, Abraham Nyankopɔn, a wadi mʼanim de me afa ɔkwan pa so, ama manya me wura nuabarima nena aware ama ne babarima no. 49Afei, sɛ wobɛyɛ me wura adɔe adi no nokware a, ka kyerɛ me. Sɛ ɛnte saa nso a, ka kyerɛ me, sɛnea ɛbɛyɛ a, mehu ɔkwan ko a mɛfa so.”

50Laban ne Betuel buae se, “Saa asɛm yi fi Awurade nti, yenni ho asɛm biara. 51Rebeka ni. Momfa no nkɔ, na ɔnkɔware mo wura no babarima no, sɛnea Awurade ahyɛ no.”

52Bere a Abraham somfo no tee nea wɔkae no, obuu nkotodwe wɔ Awurade anim. 53Na ɔsomfo no yii sikakɔkɔɔ ne dwetɛ nnwinne ne ntade maa Rebeka. Ɔsan de nneɛma a ɛsom bo yiye yɛɛ Rebeka nuabarima ne ne na ayɛ. 54Afei, ɔsomfo no ne nnipa a wɔka ne ho no didi nomee, na wɔda maa ade kyee.

Ade kyee anɔpa a wɔsɔree no, ɔsomfo no kae se, “Munnya me kwan, na mensan nkɔ me wura nkyɛn.”

55Nanso Rebeka nuabarima no ne ne na buaa ɔsomfo no se, “Ma ababaa no ntena yɛn nkyɛn bɛyɛ sɛ nnafua du bi, na ɛno akyi, wode no akɔ.”

56Akoa no buaa wɔn se, “Awurade ahyira mʼakwantu yi so ama me yi de, mesrɛ mo, monnnye me nnka ha. Munnya me kwan, na mensan nkɔ me wura nkyɛn.”

57Afei, wosii gyinae sɛ, “Momma yɛmfrɛ ababaa no, na yemmisa nʼadwene.” 58Enti wɔfrɛɛ Rebeka bisaa no se, “Wopɛ sɛ wo ne saa ɔbarima yi kɔ ana?”

Rebeka buae se, “Yiw, mɛkɔ!”

59Enti wogyaa Rebeka ne ɔbea a ogyigyee no ne mmofraase no ne Abraham somfo no ne ne nkurɔfo kwan. 60Wohyiraa Rebeka se,

“Onuabea, Awurade nka wo ho,

61Na Rebeka ne ne mmaawa siesiee wɔn ho, tenatenaa wɔn yoma so ne Abraham somfo no kɔe. Eyi ne ɔkwan a Abraham somfo no faa so de Rebeka kɔe.

Ɔsomfo no buae se, “Ɔyɛ me wura babarima.” Enti Rebeka yii ne nkataanim de kataa nʼanim.

Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Genesis 24:1-67

Isake ndi Rebeka

1Tsopano Abrahamu anali atakalamba kwambiri, ndipo Yehova anamudalitsa mu zonse anachita. 2Tsiku lina Abrahamu anawuza wantchito wake wamkulu amene ankayangʼanira zonse anali nazo, kuti “Ika dzanja lako pansi pa ntchafu yanga. 3Ndikufuna kuti ulumbire pamaso pa Yehova, Mulungu wakumwamba ndi dziko lapansi, kuti sudzamupezera mwana wanga mkazi pakati pa atsikana Achikanaani a kuno kumene ndikukhala, 4koma kuti udzapita ku dziko la kwathu ndi kukamupezera mkazi mwana wanga Isake pakati pa abale anga.”

5Wantchito uja anafunsa kuti, “Nanga atakhala kuti mkaziyo sakufuna kubwera nane kuno? Kodi ine ndingadzatenge mwana wanu ndi kubwerera naye ku dziko kumene munachokera?”

6Abrahamu anati, “Uwonetsetse kuti usadzabwerere naye mwana wanga kumeneko. 7Yehova Mulungu wakumwamba amene ananditenga kwa makolo anga nanditulutsa mʼdziko lobadwira, ameneyo anayankhula nane molumbira kuti, ‘Kwa zidzukulu zako ndidzapereka dziko ili.’ Iyeyu adzatumiza mngelo wake kuti akutsogolere kumeneko kukapezera mwana wanga mkazi. 8Ngati mkaziyo adzakana kubwerera nawe ndiye kuti udzakhala womasuka ku lumbiro langa. Koma usadzamutenge mwana wanga ndi kubwerera naye kumeneko.” 9Choncho wantchitoyo anayika dzanja lake pansi pa ntchafu ya mbuye wake Abrahamu nalumbira kwa iye kuti adzachitadi monga mwa mawu a Abrahamu.

10Tsono wantchito uja anatengapo ngamira khumi mwa ngamira za mbuye wake pamodzi ndi zinthu zabwino za mitundumitundu. Ndipo ananyamuka kupita ku mzinda wa Nahori, mʼdziko la Mesopotamiya. 11Atafika, anagwaditsa pansi ngamira zija pafupi ndi chitsime chimene chinali kunja kwa mzinda uja. Awa anali madzulo ndithu, nthawi imene amayi amapita kukatunga madzi.

12Ndipo wantchito uja anapemphera nati, “Haa, Yehova, Mulungu wa mbuye wanga Abrahamu, mulole kuti zinthu zindiyendere ine lero, ndipo muonetseni mbuye wanga Abrahamu kukoma mtima kwanu kosasinthika. 13Taonani ndayima pambali pa chitsimechi, ndipo atsikana a mu mzindawu akubwera kudzatunga madzi. 14Ine ndipempha mtsikana wina kuti, ‘Chonde tula mtsuko wako kuti ndimweko madzi.’ Tsono iye akayankha kuti ‘Imwani,’ ndipo ndidzapatsanso ngamira zanu madziwo, ameneyo akhale mkazi amene mwasankhira mtumiki wanu Isake.” Zimenezi zikachitika, ndidzadziwa kuti mwaonetsadi kukoma mtima kwanu kosasinthika kwa mbuye wanga.

15Asanatsirize kupemphera, anangoona Rebeka watulukira atasenza mtsuko wake pa phewa. Iyeyu anali mwana wa Betueli mwana wa Milika, mkazi wa Nahori mʼbale wake wa Abrahamu. 16Mtsikanayo anali wokongola kwambiri, namwali amene sanadziwe mwamuna. Iye anatsikira ku chitsime nadzaza mtsuko nakweranso ku mtunda.

17Wantchito uja anathamanga kukakumana naye nati, “Chonde patseko madzi pangʼono a mu mtsuko wakowo kuti ndimwe.”

18Mtsikanayo anati, “Imwani mbuye wanga.” Ndipo mofulumira anatsitsa mtsuko uja nawuyika mʼmanja ndi kumupatsa kuti amwe.

19Atatha kupereka madzi akumwa kwa mlendo uja, mtsikanayo anati, “Ndikatungiranso ngamira madzi kuti zimwe mpaka zitakwana.” 20Choncho anafulumira kukhuthula madzi a mu mtsuko aja momwera ziweto, nathamanga kubwerera ku chitsime kukatunga madzi ena, ndipo anatunga okwanira ngamira zake zonse. 21Modekha, munthu uja anayangʼanitsitsa kwambiri mtsikana uja kuti adziwedi ngati Yehova anamutsogolera pa ulendo wake uja kapena ayi.

22Ngamira zija zitatha kumwa, mlendo uja anatulutsa chipini chagolide cholemera theka la sekeli ndi zibangiri zagolide ziwiri zolemera masekeli 100. 23Kenaka anafunsa namwaliyo kuti, “Chonde tandiwuza, kodi ndiwe mwana wa yani? Ndipo kodi malo alipo kwanu woti ife nʼkugona?”

24Anamuyankha kuti, “Ine ndine mwana wa Betueli, mwana amene Milika anaberekera Nahori.” 25Ndipo anapitiriza kunena kuti, “Chakudya chodyetsa nyamazi chilipo kwathu ndipo malo woti mugone aliponso.”

26Kenaka munthuyo anawerama pansi napembedza Yehova, 27nati, “Alemekezeke Yehova, Mulungu wa mbuye wanga Abrahamu, amene waonetsa kukoma mtima kwake kosasintha ndi kukhulupirika kwake kwa mbuye wanga. Yehova wanditsogolera pa ulendo wanga mpaka ndafika ku nyumba kwa abale ake a mbuye wanga.”

28Mtsikana uja anathamanga nakafotokozera zimenezi anthu a kwa amayi ake. 29Tsono Rebeka anali ndi mlongo wake dzina lake Labani. 30Iyeyu atangoona chipini pa mphuno ndi zibangiri pa mikono ya mlongo wake komanso kumva zimene mlendo uja ananena kwa Rebekayo, anathamangira kwa mlendo uja, ndipo anamupeza atangoyima ndi ngamira zake pafupi ndi chitsime. 31Iye anati, “Tiyeni kwathu, ndinu munthu amene Yehova wamudalitsa. Bwanji mwangoyimirira panja pano? Ine ndakukonzerani malo ogona inu ndi ngamira zanu.”

32Choncho munthu uja analowa mʼnyumba. Labani anatsitsa katundu anali pa ngamira uja. Kenaka anazipatsa ngamira zija chakudya, ndiponso anapereka madzi wosamba mapazi kwa mlendo uja ndi anthu ena onse. 33Chakudya chitabwera mlendo uja anati, “Sindidya mpaka nditakuwuzani zimene ndadzera kuno.”

Labani anati, “Yankhulani.”

34Motero iye anati, “Ine ndine wantchito wa Abrahamu. 35Yehova wadalitsa mbuye wanga kwambiri, ndiponso walemera. Wamupatsa nkhosa ndi ngʼombe, siliva ndi golide, antchito aamuna ndi antchito aakazi, komanso ngamira ndi abulu. 36Sara, mkazi wa mbuye wanga anamubalira iye mwana wamwamuna ngakhale kuti Sarayo anali wokalamba. Tsono mbuye wanga wamupatsa mwanayo chuma chonse. 37Tsono mbuye wanga anandilumbiritsa kuti ndisunge mawu ake akuti, ‘Usadzamupezere mwana wanga mkazi kuchokera mwa atsikana a dziko lino la Kanaani, 38koma upite ku banja la abambo anga ndi kwa abale anga kuti ukamupezere mkazi mwana wanga.’ ”

39“Ndipo ine ndinati kwa mbuye wanga, ‘Nanga mkaziyo akakapanda kubwera nane pamodzi?’

40“Iye anayankha, ‘Yehova amene ndakhala ndikumumvera nthawi zonse, adzatumiza mngelo wake kuti akuperekeze ndipo adzakuthandiza mpaka ukamupezere mwana wanga mkazi kuchokera ku mtundu wanga, wa fuko langa. 41Ukadzachita zimenezi udzakhala mfulu wosamangidwa ndi lumbiro langali. Koma tsono ukadzafika kwa fuko langa, ndipo ngati sadzalola kukupatsa mbeta ya mwana wanga, aponso udzamasuka ku lumbiro langali.’ ”

42“Tsono lero lino pamene ndafika pa chitsime, ndinapempha kuti, ‘Yehova, Mulungu wa mbuye wanga, Abrahamu, ngati Inu mwandidalitsadi pa ulendowu, 43taonani ndayima pambali pa chitsime ichi; ndipo ndidzati kwa namwali amene atabwere kudzatunga kuti, chonde nditamwako madzi a mu mtsuko wakowu,’ 44ndipo ngati adzandiyankha kuti, ‘Imwani ndipo ndizimwetsanso madzi ngamira zanuzi,’ ameneyo akhale yemwe Yehova wamusankhira mwana wa mbuye wanga.”

45“Ndisanatsirize kupemphera, ndinangoona Rebeka akutulukira mtsuko wake uli pa phewa. Anatsetserekera ku chitsime kukatunga madzi ndipo ndinati kwa iye, ‘Chonde patseko madzi akumwa.’

46“Mofulumira, anatsitsa mtsuko wake pa phewa pake nati, ‘Imwani ndiponso ndizimwetsa madzi ngamira zanuzi.’ Kotero ine ndinamwa ndipo anamwetsanso ngamirazo.

47“Ndinamufunsa kuti, ‘Ndiwe mwana wa yani?’

“Iye anati, ‘Ndine mwana wa Betueli mwana wa Nahori, amene Milika anamuberekera.’

“Tsono ndinayika chipini pa mphuno yake ndi kumveka zibangiri mʼmikono yake, 48kenaka ndinawerama pansi ndi kupembedza Yehova. Ndipo ndinatamanda Yehova, Mulungu wa mbuye wanga Abrahamu, amene anandilondolera mokhulupirika njira yanga. Iye wandifikitsa kwa mʼbale wake kumene ndapezera mbeta mwana wa mbuye wanga. 49Tsono ngati mukufuna kuonetsa kukoma mtima kwanu kwa mbuye wanga, ndikuonetsa kukhulupirika kwanu, ndiwuzeni; ndipo ngati si choncho ndiwuzeninso kuti ndidziwe chochita.”

50Labani ndi Betueli anayankha nati, “Izi ndi zochokera kwa Yehova, ndipo ife sitinganenepo kanthu. 51Nayu Rebeka, mutengeni muzipita naye kuti akakhale mkazi wa mwana wa mbuye wanu, monga Yehova wanenera.”

52Wantchito wa Abrahamu uja atamva zimene anawerama pansi pamaso pa Yehova. 53Kenaka wantchitoyo anatulutsa ziwiya zagolide ndi zasiliva ndi zovala nazipereka kwa Rebeka. Anaperekanso mphatso zina za mtengowapatali kwa mlongo wake ndi amayi ake a Rebeka. 54Tsono wantchito uja ndi anthu amene anali naye anadya, kumwa nagona komweko.

Kutacha mmawa wake, wantchito uja anati, “Mundilole ndibwerere kwa mbuye wanga.”

55Koma mlongo wake ndi amayi ake a Rebeka anayankha kuti, “Muloleni mtsikanayu abakhala nafe masiku khumi kapena kupyolerapo, kenaka mukhoza kupita.”

56Koma iye anawawuza kuti, “Chonde musandichedwetse. Yehova wandithandiza kale pa ulendo wanga. Mundilole ndibwerere kwa mbuye wanga.”

57Koma iwo anati, “Bwanji timuyitane mtsikanayo ndipo timufunse ngati afuna kupita nanu panopa.” 58Choncho iwo anamuyitana Rebeka uja namufunsa kuti, “Kodi ukufuna kupita ndi munthuyu panopa?”

Iye anayankha kuti, “Ndipita.”

59Kotero anamulola Rebeka pamodzi ndi mlezi wake kuti apite ndi wantchito wa Abrahamu pamodzi ndi anthu amene anali naye. 60Ndipo iwo anadalitsa Rebeka ndi kumuwuza kuti,

“Iwe ndiwe mlongo wathu, Mulungu akudalitse iwe, ukhale

mayi wa anthu miyandamiyanda;

ndi kuti zidzukulu zako zidzalanda

mizinda ya adani awo.”

61Kenaka Rebeka ndi antchito ake ananyamuka kukakwera ngamira zawo ndipo anapita naye pamodzi munthu uja. Choncho wantchito uja anatenga Rebeka nʼkumapita.

62Pa nthawiyi nʼkuti Isake atafika kuchokera ku chitsime cha Wamoyo Wondipenya (Beeri-lahai-roi), popeza tsopano ankakhala ku Negevi. 63Tsiku lina chakumadzulo, Isake anatuluka kukayendayenda ku munda, ndipo atakweza maso anaona ngamira zikubwera. 64Rebeka nayenso anatukula maso naona Isake. Ndipo anatsika pa ngamira yake 65nafunsa wantchito uja kuti, “Kodi munthu uyo ndi ndani akuyenda mʼmundamo kubwera kudzakumana nafe?”

Wantchitoyo anayankha, “Ndiye mbuye wanga.” Choncho Rebeka anatenga nsalu ndi kufunda kumaso.

66Tsono wantchito uja anawuza Isake zonse zimene anazichita. 67Isake analowa naye Rebeka mu tenti ya amayi ake Sara, ndipo anakhala mkazi wake. Isake anamukonda kwambiri Rebeka mkazi wake motero kuti zimenezi zinamutonthoza imfa ya amayi ake.
