1 Mose 30:1-43

1Bere a Rahel huu sɛ ɔne Yakob nwo no, nʼani beree ne nuabea no. Enti ɔka kyerɛɛ Yakob se, “Sɛ wo ne me anwo mma a, mewu!”

2Yakob bo fuw Rahel ma ɔkae se, “Meyɛ Onyankopɔn? Ɔno na wasiw wo yafunu ano.”

3Na Rahel ka kyerɛɛ Yakob se, “Mʼafenaa Bilha ni, wo ne no nkɔda, na ɔnwo mma me, na ɛnam ne so ama me nso manya abusua.”

4Enti Rahel de nʼabaawa Bilha maa Yakob waree. Yakob ne no dae. 5Onyinsɛn woo ɔbabarima maa Yakob. 6Na Rahel kae se, “Onyankopɔn adi mʼasɛm ama me. Wate mʼadesrɛ ama me ɔbabarima.” Ne saa nti, ɔtoo no din Dan a ne nkyerɛase ne, “Onyankopɔn adi mʼasɛm ama me.”

7Rahel afenaa Bilha nyinsɛnee bio, woo ɔbabarima a ɔto so abien maa Yakob. 8Na Rahel kae se, “Me ne me nua Lea adi yɛn ho aperepere na madi nkonim.” Ɛno nti, ɔtoo abofra no din Naftali a ne nkyerɛase ne, “Mʼakodi.”

9Bere a Lea huu sɛ nʼawo atew kɔ no, ɔno nso de nʼafenaa Silpa maa Yakob waree. 10Lea afenaa Silpa woo ɔbabarima maa Yakob. 11Na Lea kae se, “Akraye bɛn ni!” Enti ɔtoo abofra no din Gad a ne nkyerɛase ne, “Asi me yiye.”

12Lea afenaa Silpa woo ɔbabarima a ɔto so abien maa Yakob. 13Na Lea kae se, “Mʼani agye! Afei de, mmea no bɛfrɛ me anigye.” Enti, ɔtoo no din Aser a ne nkyerɛase ne “Anigye.”

14Awitwabere mu da bi, Ruben kɔɔ afum kohuu afifide bi a wɔfrɛ no dudaim. Ɔde bi brɛɛ ne na Lea. Rahel ka kyerɛɛ Lea se, “Mesrɛ wo, ma me wo ba no dudaim30.14 dudaim: Eyi ne sɛnea wɔfrɛ dua no wɔ Hebri kasa mu. no bi.”

15Nanso Lea de abufuw buae se, “Woabegye me kunu akyi no, woresan abegye me ba dudaim a ɔde abrɛ me no bi apaa so?”

Na Rahel de awerɛhow kae se, “Eye, ɛno de, Yakob mmɛda wo nkyɛn nnɛ anadwo yi, na ma me dudaim no bi.”

16Enti da no anwummere a Yakob fi afum reba no, Lea kohyiaa no, ka kyerɛɛ no se, “Ɛsɛ sɛ wobɛda me nkyɛn anadwo yi, efisɛ mede me ba dudaim atɔ wo.” Enti Yakob kɔdaa Lea nkyɛn anadwo no.

17Onyankopɔn tiee Lea mpaebɔ, na onyinsɛn woo ɔbabarima a ɔto so anum maa Yakob. 18Na Lea kae se, “Mede mʼafenaa Silpa maa me kunu Yakob no, Onyankopɔn adom me.” Enti wɔtoo abofra no din Isakar a nkyerɛase ne “Akyɛde.”

19Lea san nyinsɛnee bio, na ɔwoo ne babarima a ɔto so asia maa Yakob. 20Enti Lea kae se, “Onyankopɔn ama me akyɛde a ɛsom bo yiye. Afei de, manya me kunu anim anuonyam. Ɔde obu ne nidi bɛma me, efisɛ mawo mmabarima baasia ama no. Enti ɔtoo abarimaa no din Sebulon a ne nkyerɛase ne Anuonyam.”

21Akyiri no, Lea woo ɔbabea too no din Dina.

22Afei, Onyankopɔn kaee Rahel, tiee ne mpaebɔ, buee nʼawotwaa ano. 23Rahel nyinsɛn woo ɔbabarima, na ɔkae se, “Afei de, Onyankopɔn apepa mʼanimguase ama me nso mawo ɔba.” 24Rahel too ne ba no din Yosef a ne nkyerɛase ne “Awurade mfa ɔbabarima baako nka me ho.”

Yakob Ahonya

25Rahel woo Yosef no, ankyɛ na da koro bi, Yakob ka kyerɛɛ Laban se, “Mepɛ sɛ mesan kɔ mʼankasa mʼasase so ne me fi, enti mesrɛ wo, gya me kwan na menkɔ. 26Fa me yerenom ne me mma a wɔn nti mebɛsom wo no ka ho. Wʼankasa ara wunim ɔsom pa a masom wo.”

27Laban buae se, “Mesrɛ wo, nkɔ nnya me. Makɔ abisa ahu sɛ, nhyira dodow a manya yi nyinaa fi te a wote me nkyɛn yi.” 28Laban ka kaa ho se, “Kyerɛ me akatua biara a wubegye, na metua.”

29Yakob buaa Laban se, “Wʼankasa wunim som a masom wo, ne sɛnea mahwɛ wʼanantwi ne wo nguan ama wɔn ase afɛe afa. 30Wʼahode kakra a na wowɔ bere a mebae no, nnɛ, adɔɔso abu so. Biribiara a meyɛ maa wo no nso, Awurade ahyira so. Na me nso, bere bɛn na metumi apɛ biribi de agyaw mʼabusuafo?”

31Laban bisaa Yakob se, “Akatua ahe na memfa mma wo?”

Yakob nso buae se, “Mma me hwee, na mmom, sɛ wobɛyɛ mʼabisade baako pɛ yi ama me de a, mɛkɔ so ayɛn wo mmoa no. 32Nnɛ, ma menkɔhwehwɛ wo mmoa no nyinaa mu, na minnyi oguan biara a ne ho yɛ ntokontrama, oguan ba biara a ɔyɛ tuntum ne abirekyi biara a ɔyɛ ntokontrama. Eyinom na ɛbɛyɛ mʼakatua. 33Eyi bɛma me nokwaredi adi me adanse, bere biara a wobɛhwehwɛ akatua a wode ama me no mu no. Sɛ wuhu abirekyi biara a ɔnyɛ ntokontrama anaa oguan biara a nʼahosu mmiri wɔ me mmoa no mu a, na ɛkyerɛ sɛ mawia wɔn afi wo de mu.”

34Laban buaa Yakob se, “Eye, yɛ no sɛnea woaka no.” 35Da no ara, Laban yiyii adwennini a wɔyɛ ntokontrama no nyinaa ne nguanbere a wɔyɛ ntokontrama no nso; mmoa no mu biara a fufu wɔ ne ho ne oguan ba biara a ɔyɛ tuntum no, ɔde wɔn kɔmaa ne mmabarima. 36Na Laban mma no faa mmoa no de wɔn twaa nnansa kwan, fii baabi a na Yakob wɔ hɔ. Saa bere no mu no, Yakob tenaa hɔ, hwɛɛ Laban nguan no.

37Na Yakob faa saa nnua yi: ɔsɛsɛ, odwen ne ɔfo mman amono, yiyii ho akamakam ma ɛkɔtoo dua kwatii no. 38Afei, ɔde mman amono a wayiyi ho no nyinaa guguu mmoa no adidi nnaka mu, sɛnea ɛba sɛ, mmoa no ba sɛ wɔrebɛnom nsu no bi a, wobehu.

Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Genesis 30:1-43

1Rakele ataona kuti sakumuberekera Yakobo ana, anayamba kumuchitira nsanje mʼbale wake. Choncho anati kwa Yakobo, “Undipatse ana kapena apo ayi ndingofa!”

2Yakobo anapsera mtima Rakele ndipo nati, “Kodi ine ndalowa mʼmalo mwa Mulungu amene wakulepheretsa iwe kukhala ndi ana?”

3Pamenepo Rakele anati kwa Yakobo, “Mdzakazi wanga Biliha nayu. Lowana naye kuti mwina nʼkundibalira mwana, ndipo kudzera mwa iyeyu nanenso nʼkukhala ndi ana.”

4Ndipo anamupatsa Yakobo wantchito wake Biliha kuti alowane naye. Choncho Yakobo analowana ndi Biliha, 5ndipo Bilihayo anatenga pathupi namubalira Yakobo mwana wamwamuna. 6Pamenepo Rakele anati, “Mulungu waweruza mondikomera mtima, wamva kupempha kwanga ndipo wandipatsa mwana wa mwamuna.” Choncho anamutcha Dani.

7Biliha, wantchito wa Rakele, anatenganso pathupi nabalira Yakobo mwana wa mwamuna wachiwiri. 8Pamenepo Rakele anati, “Ndakhala ndikulimbana kwambiri ndi mʼbale wanga ndipo ndapambana.” Choncho anamutcha Nafutali.

9Pamene Leya anaona kuti waleka kubereka ana, iye anatenga wantchito wake Zilipa namupereka kwa Yakobo kuti alowane naye. 10Zilipa, wantchito wa Leya, anaberekera Yakobo mwana wamwamuna. 11Pamenepo Leya anati, “Mwayi wangawo!” Choncho anamutcha Gadi.

12Zilipa, wantchito wa Leya anamubalira Yakobo mwana wa mwamuna wachiwiri. 13Pamenepo Leya anati, “Ndakondwa bwanji! Amayi adzanditcha ine wokondwa.” Choncho anamutcha Aseri.

14Pa nthawi yokolola tirigu, Rubeni anapita ku munda ndipo anapezako zipatso za mankhwala wobereketsa. Tsono anatengerako mayi wake Leya. Rakele anati kwa Leya, “Chonde patseko mankhwala wakupezera mwana wakowo.”

15Koma iye anati kwa Rakele, “Kodi sizinakukwanire kulanda mwamuna wanga? Ukuti utengenso mankhwala a mwana wangawa.”

Iye anati, “Chabwino, agone ndi iwe usiku uno kuti tisinthane ndi mankhwala a mwana wakowo.”

16Choncho pamene Yakobo ankabwera kuchokera ku munda madzulo, Leya anapita kukakumana naye nati, “Lero mukagona ku nyumba chifukwa ndakubwerekani ndi mankhwala wobereketsa a mwana wanga.” Choncho usiku umenewo Yakobo anakalowa kwa Leya.

17Mulungu anamva pemphero la Leya ndipo anatenga pathupi nabalira Yakobo mwana wa mwamuna wachisanu. 18Pamenepo Leya anati, “Mulungu wandipatsa mphotho chifukwa chopereka wantchito wanga kwa mwamuna wanga.” Choncho anamutcha Isakara.

19Leya anatenganso pathupi nabalira Yakobo mwana wa mwamuna wachisanu ndi chimodzi. 20Pamenepo Leya anati, “Mulungu wandipatsa mphatso yapamwamba. Tsopano mwamuna wanga adzandilemekeza chifukwa ndamubalira ana aamuna asanu ndi mmodzi.” Choncho anamutcha Zebuloni.

21Patapita nthawi Leya anabereka mwana wamkazi ndipo anamutcha Dina.

22Kenaka, Mulungu anakumbukira Rakele namva pemphero lake ndi kulola kuti akhale ndi mwana. 23Rakele anatenga pathupi nabala mwana wamwamuna ndipo anati, “Mulungu wandichotsera manyazi anga.” 24Iye anamutcha mwanayo Yosefe, ndipo anati, “Mulungu andipatsenso mwana wina.”

Nkhosa za Yakobo Zichuluka

25Rakele atabereka Yosefe, Yakobo anati kwa Labani, “Ndimasuleni kuti ndizipita ku dziko la kwathu. 26Patseni akazi anga ndi ana anga, amene ndinakugwirirani ntchito, ndipo ndidzanyamuka ulendo. Inu mukudziwa ntchito imene ndakugwirirani.”

27Koma Labani anati kwa iye, “Chonde, ngati mungandikomere mtima musapite chifukwa ndadziwa kudzera mwa kuwombeza kwanga kuti Yehova wandidalitsa chifukwa cha inu.” 28Anapitiriza kunena kuti, “Tchula malipiro ako ndipo ndidzakupatsa.”

29Koma Yakobo anati kwa iye, “Inu mukudziwa mmene ine ndakugwirirani ntchito ndi mmene ziweto zanu zaswanira pamene ine ndimazisamalira. 30Poyamba munali nazo zochepa ine ndisanabwere, koma tsopano zachuluka. Yehova wakudalitsani chifukwa cha ine. Ndi nthawi tsopano kuti nane ndisamalire banja langa.”

31Labani anafunsa, “Ndikupatse chiyani?”

Yakobo anayankha, “Musandipatse kanthu. Koma mungondichitira izi ndipo ndidzapitiriza kusamalira nkhosa zanu ndi kuziyangʼanira: 32Mundilole ndiyendeyende pakati pa ziweto zanu lero ndi kuchotsamo mwana wankhosa wamkazi aliyense wakuda, mbuzi iliyonse yamathothomathotho ndi yamawangamawanga. Zimenezi ndiye zikhale malipiro anga. 33Ndipo chilungamo changa chidzaoneka mʼtsogolo, pamene inu mudzabwere kudzaona malipiro angawo. Ngati mudzapeza mbuzi mʼgulu langa imene si yamawangamawanga, kapena mwana wankhosa wamkazi amene si wakuda ndiye kuti zimenezo zidzakhala kuti ndinakuberani.”

34Labani anati, “Ndavomera, zikhale monga mmene wayankhuliramu.” 35Tsiku lomwelo Labani anachotsa atonde onse ndi mbuzi zazikazi zonse zimene zinali ndi mawangamawanga kapena zamathothomathotho, ndiponso zonse zabanga loyera. Anachotsa ana onse ankhosa aakazi akuda, napereka ziweto zonsezi kwa ana ake aamuna kuti aziweta. 36Kenaka Labani anayenda mtunda wa masiku atatu kutalikirana ndi Yakobo koma Yakobo anapitiriza kuweta nkhosa zina zonse za Labani.

37Tsono Yakobo anatenga nthambi zaziwisi za mitengo ya mkundi, alimoni ndi puleni nazisenda kuchotsa makungwa ake mpaka mtengo woyera wamʼkati kuonekera. 38Atatero anayika nthambi zija mʼmagome omwera madzi molunjika ziweto zija kuti pakumwa madziwo ziweto zazikazi ziziyangʼana nthambi zija popeza kuti pakumwa madzi ziweto zija zinkakwerana. 39Ndiye kuti nkhosa zija zinkatenga mawere pakumwa madzi molunjika nthambi zija, ndipo zinkaswa ana a mawangamawanga kapena a mathothomathotho. 40Yakobo anayika padera ana a ziweto zija. Koma ziweto zina anaziyika kuti ziyangʼanane ndi za Labani, zimene zinali za mawangamawanga ndi zakuda. Motero anapeza ziweto zakezake, ndipo sanazisakanize ndi za Labani. 41Yakobo ankayika nthambi zija momwera madzi pamene ziweto zamphamvu zazikazi zinkakweredwa pofuna kuti zitenge mawere pakumwa madzi moyangʼanana ndi nthambi zija. 42Koma sankayika nthambizo pamene ziweto zofowoka zazikazi zinkakweredwa pakumwa madzi. Choncho ziweto zofowoka zonse zinakhala za Labani, ndi ziweto zamphamvu zinakhala za Yakobo. 43Mwa njira imeneyi, Yakobo analemera kwambiri ndipo anali ndi ziweto zochuluka kwambiri, antchito aakazi ndi aamuna, ngamira ndi abulu.
