Yakob Guan Fi Laban Nkyɛn

1Yakob tee sɛ Laban mmabarima no reka se, “Yakob afa yɛn agya ho nneɛma nyinaa. Nʼahonya nyinaa fi yɛn agya nneɛma a wafa no.” 2Yakob huu sɛ afei de, Laban ntew nʼanim nkyerɛ no sɛ kan no.

3Na Awurade ka kyerɛɛ Yakob se, “San kɔ wʼabusuafo ne wo nkurɔfo asase so, na medi wʼakyi.”

4Enti Yakob soma ma wɔkɔfrɛɛ ne yerenom Rahel ne Lea se wɔmmra ne nkyɛn wɔ sare no so, faako a ɔne ne nguankuw no wɔ no. 5Wɔbae no, ɔka kyerɛɛ wɔn se, “Mahu sɛ afei de, mo agya Laban anim nyɛ me fɛ sɛ kan no, nanso Onyankopɔn a mʼagya Isak som no no ka me ho. 6Munim sɛ mayi me yam de mʼahoɔden nyinaa ayɛ adwuma ama mo agya; 7nanso mo agya nam asisi kwan so asesa mʼakatua mu mpɛn du. Nanso eyi nyinaa akyi no, Onyankopɔn amma no kwan amma wanyɛ me bɔne. 8Sɛ ɔka se, ‘Mmoa a wɔn ho yɛ ntokontrama no bɛyɛ wʼakatua,’ na sɛ mmoa no wo a, na wɔawo mma a wɔn ho yɛ ntokontrama. Sɛ ɔka se, ‘Mmoa a wɔn ho yɛ nsensanee no bɛyɛ wʼakatua’ a, na wɔawowo mma a wɔn ho yɛ nsensanee. 9Ɔkwan a Onyankopɔn nam so agye mo agya nsam nyɛmmoa no de wɔn ama me ama mayɛ ɔdefo no ne no.

10“Eduu bere a mmoa no hyia mu no, mesoo dae huu sɛ adwennini a wɔforo nguanbere no ho yɛ ntokontrama, nsensanee anaa nsisimu. 11Onyankopɔn bɔfo frɛɛ me wɔ dae no mu ka kyerɛɛ me se, ‘Yakob!’ Na migyee so se, ‘Me ni!’ 12Na ɔsoro abɔfo no ka kyerɛɛ me se, ‘Hwɛ na hu sɛ adwennini a wɔforo nguanbere no nyinaa ho yɛ nsensanee, ntokontrama anaa nsisimu, na mahu ɔkwan a Laban de wo fa so no nyinaa. 13Mene Onyankopɔn a miyii me ho adi kyerɛɛ wo wɔ Bet-El, faako a wode ɔbo sii hɔ, hwiee ngo guu so, som me, hyɛɛ me bɔ sɛ, wobɛsom me no. Afei, tu fi saa asase yi so ntɛm ara, na san kɔ asase a wɔwoo wo wɔ so no so.’ ”

14Na Rahel ne Lea bisae se, “Enti saa tebea a yɛwɔ mu yi, yɛwɔ kyɛfa bi wɔ yɛn agya agyapade mu ana? 15Yɛn agya mfa yɛn sɛ yɛyɛ ahɔho? Watɔn yɛn, na yɛn ti sika a ogyee no nso, wadi. 16Ɛyɛ nokware turodoo sɛ yɛn agya ahode a Onyankopɔn gyei no nyinaa yɛ yɛn ne yɛn mma dea. Enti biribiara a Onyankopɔn aka akyerɛ wo sɛ yɛ no, yɛ.”

17Na Yakob de ne mma ne ne yerenom tenatenaa yoma so. 18Ɔkaa ne mmoa nyinaa, agyapade a wanya nyinaa ne mmoa a onyaa wɔ Paddan-Aram nyinaa dii nʼanim sɛ, ɔrekɔ nʼagya Isak nkyɛn wɔ Kanaan asase so.

19Bere a Laban kɔɔ wuram sɛ ɔrekotwitwa ne nguan ho nwi no, Rahel faa nʼakyi kowiaa nʼagya fi abosom. 20Yakob daadaa Aramni Laban a wamma wanhu sɛ ɔreguan. 21Yakob de nʼahode nyinaa guanee. Otwaa Asubɔnten Eufrate, de nʼani kyerɛɛ bepɔw asase Gilead no so.

Laban Tiw Yakob

22Yakob ne nʼabusuafo guanee no, nnansa akyi ansa na Laban tee sɛ wɔkɔ. 23Laban faa ne fifo kaa ne ho, de anibere tiw Yakob. Nnanson akyi ansa na ɔkɔtoo Yakob ne ne nkurɔfo no wɔ bepɔw Gilead so. 24Saa da no ara anadwo, Onyankopɔn yii ne ho adi wɔ dae mu kyerɛɛ Aramni Laban. Ɔka kyerɛɛ no wɔ dae no mu se, “Hwɛ yiye na woankɔka asɛm biara; sɛ ɛyɛ asɛm pa anaa asɛmmɔne ankyerɛ Yakob.”

25Bere a Laban ne ne fifo kɔtoo Yakob no, na Yakob asisi ne ntamadan wɔ bepɔw Gilead atifi. Laban ne ne fifo no nso sisii wɔn ntamadan wɔ hɔ. 26Na Laban kɔɔ Yakob nkyɛn kobisaa no se, “Asɛm bɛn na wode adi me yi? Woadaadaa me, akyekyere me mmabea de wɔn reguan te sɛ nnommumfo. 27Adɛn nti na wodaadaa me, na wuguan fii me nkyɛn a woankra? Sɛ wokraa me a, anka mɛto wo pon, na mama nnipa abɛbɔ sanku, ato nnwom wɔ aponto no ase, de agya wo kwan. 28Woamma mankyiakyia me nenanom ne me mmabea yi nsam annya wɔn kwan mpo. Woadi nkwaseasɛm. 29Mewɔ tumi sɛ anka meyɛ wo bɔne, nanso nnɛra anadwo, Onyankopɔn a wo agya som no no ka kyerɛɛ me wɔ dae mu se, ‘Hwɛ yiye na woanka asɛm biara, sɛ ɛyɛ asɛm pa anaa asɛmmɔne ankyerɛ Yakob.’ 30Esiane sɛ wʼani agyina wʼagya fi nti, na ɛsɛ sɛ wokɔ ara. Na adɛn nti na wuwiaa mʼabosom de kaa wo nneɛma ho?”

31Yakob buaa Laban se, “Na misuro. Na ɛyɛ me sɛ wode tumi begye wo mmabea no afi me nsam. 32Nanso obiara a wubehu wʼabosom no wɔ ne nkyɛn no, ɔsɛ owu. Wʼankasa hwehwɛ sɛ wubehu biribiara a ɛyɛ wo de wɔ me nneɛma yi mu wɔ yɛn nuanom yi anim. Sɛ wuhu biribiara a ɛyɛ wo de a, fa wʼade.” Bere a Yakob kaa saa asɛm yi no, na onnim sɛ Rahel na wawia nʼagya Laban abosom no.

33Ɛno nti, Laban kɔɔ Yakob, Lea, ne nʼasomfo Bilha ne Silpa ntamadan mu kɔhwehwɛɛ hɔ, nanso wanhu biribiara. Afei, okowuraa Rahel ntamadan mu. 34Na Rahel awia abosom no de ahyehyɛ ne yoma no agua ase, atena so. Enti Laban kɔhwehwɛɛ nneɛma a ɛwɔ Rahel ntamadan no nyinaa mu, nanso wanhu abosom no.

35Rahel ka kyerɛɛ nʼagya se, “Agya, mma wo bo mfuw me sɛ mete hɔ wɔ wʼanim na mennsɔre nnyina hɔ, makɔ afikyiri.” Enti Laban toaa so hwehwɛɛ abosom no ara, nanso wanhu.

36Ɛyɛɛ saa no, Yakob bo fuw Laban yiye, bisaa no se, “Bɔne bɛn na mayɛ? Amumɔyɛsɛm bɛn na madi a ɛno nti, woataa me ara yi?” 37Wohwehwɛɛ me nneɛma nyinaa mu yi, dɛn ade na wuhuu a ɛyɛ wo ne wo fifo de? Nea wuhuu biara no, fa bɛto gua wɔ me nuanom ne wo nuanom a wɔahyia ha yi nyinaa anim, na wɔnkyerɛ nea ɛyɛ ne de.

38“Mfirihyia aduonu a wo ne me tenae, wo nguan ne wo mmirekyi abere no ampɔmpɔn, na mankum wʼadwennini yi bi amfi wo nguankuw yi mu anwe da. 39Mamfa wʼaboa biara a akekaboa bi atetew ne mu ammrɛ wo; wɔn a mmoa kum wɔn no, mʼankasa mehyɛɛ anan mu. Afei sɛ ɛba sɛ wowia wo mmoa no bi, anadwo anaa awia a, woma mitua ka. 40Eyi ne tebea a na mewɔ mu: Meyɛɛ wʼadwuma awia maa owia hyee me ne anadwo maa awɔw dee me; nam so maa nna yera fii mʼaniwa mu. 41Tebea a na mewɔ mu mfirihyia aduonu a metenaa wo nkyɛn no nyinaa ni.

Na mede mfirihyia asia nso hwɛɛ wo nguan, na wosesaa mʼakatua mpɛn du. 42Sɛ ɛnyɛ Onyankopɔn a mʼagya som no, Onyankopɔn a Abraham som no a ɔwɔ mʼafa ne suro a misuro mʼagya Isak a, anka nokware ni, wopam me maa mede me nsa pan kɔe. Nanso Onyankopɔn huu mʼamanehunu ne me nsa ano adwuma nti na nnɛra anadwo ɔkaa wʼanim no.”

Laban Ne Yakob Yɛ Apam

43Laban buaa Yakob se, “Mmea no yɛ me mmabea, mmofra no nso yɛ me nenanom, na nguankuw no nso yɛ me nguankuw. Nneɛma a wuhu yi nyinaa yɛ me de. Ɛbɛyɛ dɛn na matumi ayɛ mʼankasa me mmabea ne me nenanom bɔne? 44Afei, bra na me ne wo nyɛ apam a ebedi me ne wo ntam adanse. Saa apam no so na yebedi wɔ yɛn asetena nyinaa mu.”

45Enti Yakob faa ɔbo de sii hɔ yɛɛ nkaedum. 46Yakob kyerɛɛ ne nuanom no se, “Montase abo!” Enti wɔtasee abo boaa ano, na wɔn nyinaa tenaa ho didii. 47Laban frɛɛ abo kuw no Yegar-Sahaduta a ne nkyerɛase ne Adanse Kuw. Yakob nso frɛɛ saa abo kuw no Gal-Ed, a ne nkyerɛase ne Adanse Kuw saa ara.

48Laban kae se, “Abo Kuw yi na edi me ne wo ntam adanse nnɛ!” Ɛno nti na wɔfrɛ no Gal-Ed no. 49Na wɔsan frɛ abo nkaedum no nso bio sɛ, “Mispa” efisɛ Laban kae se, “Awurade mmoa yɛn, na sɛ yɛn ntam tetew mpo a, yɛn mu biara bedi saa apam yi so. 50Sɛ woanhwɛ me mmabea yi yiye anaasɛ woware mmea foforo ka me mmabea yi ho a, ɛwɔ mu sɛ merenhu, nanso Onyankopɔn de, obehu.”

51Laban san ka kyerɛɛ Yakob se, “Abo Kuw yi ni. Nkaedum a mede asi me ne wo ntam no nso ni. 52Abo Kuw yi, ne nkaedum yi nyɛ adanse sɛ, me Laban, merentra saa Abo Kuw yi ne nkaedum yi mma baabi a wowɔ mmɛtoa wo. Na wo Yakob nso, worentra saa Abo kuw yi ne nkaedum yi mma baabi a mewɔ mmɛtoa me. 53Ma Abraham Nyankopɔn ne Nahor31.53 Na Nahor yɛ Abraham nuabarima (11.26) na ɔyɛ Laban nena (24.24,29). Laban som anyame bebree. Nyankopɔn, wɔn agyanom Nyankopɔn nyɛ otemmufo wɔ me ne wo ntam.”

Enti Yakob de nʼagya Isak Nyankopɔn ho suro kaa ntam sɛ, ɔrentra ɔhye no. 54Yakob bɔɔ Onyankopɔn afɔre wɔ bepɔw no atifi, na ohyiahyiaa ne nnamfonom ma wobedidii. Ɛno akyi no, wɔdaa ne nkyɛn wɔ bepɔw no so.

Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Genesis 31:1-55

Yakobo Athawa Labani

1Yakobo anamva zimene ana aamuna a Labani ankanena kuti, “Yakobo watenga chilichonse cha abambo athu ndipo wapeza chuma chonsechi pogwiritsa ntchito chuma cha abambo athu.” 2Choncho Yakobo anaona kuti Labani sankamuonetsanso nkhope yabwino monga kale.

3Pamenepo Yehova anati kwa Yakobo, “Bwerera ku dziko la makolo ako ndi kwa abale ako, ndipo Ine ndidzakhala nawe.”

4Choncho Yakobo anatumiza mawu kukayitana Rakele ndi Leya kuti abwere ku busa kumene ankaweta ziweto zake. 5Iye anawawuza kuti, “Abambo anu sakundionetsanso nkhope yabwino monga kale, koma Mulungu wa makolo anga wakhala ali nane. 6Inu mukudziwa kuti ndagwirira ntchito abambo anu ndi mphamvu zanga zonse, 7chonsecho abambo anu akhala akundinyenga posintha malipiro anga kakhumi konse. Komabe Mulungu sanalole kuti andichitire choyipa 8Pamene abambo anu anati, ‘Zamawangamawanga zidzakhala malipiro ako,’ ziweto zonse zinaswa ana amawangamawanga; ndipo pamene anati, ‘Zamichocholozi zidzakhala malipiro ako,’ ziweto zonse zinaswa ana a michocholozi. 9Motero Mulungu walanda abambo anu ziweto zawo ndi kundipatsa.

10“Pa nthawi imene ziweto zimatenga mawere ndinalota maloto, ndipo ndinaona kuti atonde onse amene ankakwerawo anali amichocholozi, amawangamawanga kapena amathothomathotho 11Kutulo komweko, mngelo wa Mulungu anati, ‘Yakobo.’ Ine ndinayankha, ‘Ee, Ambuye.’ 12Ndipo iye anati, ‘Tayangʼana ndipo taona kuti atonde onse okwerana ndi ziweto ali amichocholozi, amawangamawanga kapena a mathothomathotho, popeza ndaona zonse zimene Labani wakhala akukuchitira. 13Ine ndine Mulungu amene ndinadza kwa iwe pa Beteli paja. Beteli ndi kumalo kuja kumene unayimika mwala ndi kuwudzoza mafuta, komanso kulumbira kwa Ine. Tsopano choka mʼdziko lino msanga ndi kubwerera ku dziko la kwanu.’ ”

14Pamenepo Rakele ndi Leya anayankha, “Kodi ngati ife tilinso ndi gawo ngati cholowa pa chuma cha abambo athu? 15Kodi abambo athu samationa ife ngati alendo? Iwo anatigulitsa ndi kuwononga ndalama zonse anazipeza pa ifezo. 16Chuma chonse chimene Mulungu walanda abambo athu, ndi chathu ndi ana athu. Tsono inu chitani zimene Mulungu wakuwuzani.”

17Pamenepo Yakobo anakonzeka nakweza ana ake ndi akazi ake pa ngamira, 18anakusa ziweto zake zonse patsogolo natenga katundu wake yense amene anamupeza ku Padanaramu, ndipo ananyamuka kupita ku Kanaani, ku dziko la abambo ake, Isake.

19Labani atachoka pa khomo kupita kukameta nkhosa, mʼmbuyomu Rakele anaba timafano ta milungu ta abambo ake. 20Komanso nthawi iyi nʼkuti Yakobo atamunamiza Labani Mwaramu posamuwuza zoona kuti afuna kuthawa. 21Choncho anathawa ndi zonse anali nazo. Ananyamuka nawoloka mtsinje wa Yufurate kupita cha ku Giliyadi, dziko la mapiri.

Labani Alondola Yakobo

22Patapita masiku atatu, Labani anawuzidwa kuti Yakobo wathawa. 23Pomwepo anatengana ndi abale ake namulondola Yakobo kwa masiku asanu ndi awiri ndipo anakamupezera ku Giliyadi, dziko la mapiri. 24Koma Mulungu anabwera kwa Labani, Mwaramu kutulo usiku nati kwa iye, “Samala kuti usamuopseze Yakobo mwa njira iliyonse.”

25Pamene Labani amamupeza Yakobo, nʼkuti Yakobo atamanga matenti ake ku mapiri a dziko la Giliyadi. Nayenso Labani ndi abale ake anamanga matenti awo komweko. 26Tsono Labani anati kwa Yakobo, “Kodi ndakuchita chiyani kuti iwe undinamize ndi kutenga ana anga ngati anthu ogwidwa ku nkhondo? 27Chifukwa chiyani unandinamiza ndi kuthawa mozemba wosandiwuza? Ukanandiwuza, bwezi titatsanzikana mwa chisangalalo ndi kuyimba nyimbo ndi zisekese ndi azeze. 28Sunandilole kuti ndingopsompsona adzukulu anga ndi ana anga aakazi motsanzikana nawo. Unachita zopusa. 29Ndili nayo mphamvu yakukuchita choyipa; koma usiku wapitawu, Mulungu wa abambo ako wandiwuza ine kuti, ‘Usamuopseze Yakobo mwa njira iliyonse.’ 30Ndikudziwa kuti unachoka chifukwa unapukwa kufuna kubwerera kwanu kwa abambo ako. Koma nʼchifukwa chiyani unaba milungu yanga?”

31Yakobo anayankha Labani kuti, “Ine ndinkaopa chifukwa ndinkaganiza kuti mukhoza kundilanda anawa. 32Koma mukapeza wina aliyense ndi milungu yanu, ameneyo sakhala ndi moyo. Anthu onse akupenya, lozani chilichonse chanu chimene chili ndi ine, ndipo ngati muchipeze tengani. Koma Yakobo sankadziwa kuti Rakele anabadi milunguyo.”

33Choncho Labani analowadi mu tenti ya Yakobo, ya Leya ndi mʼmatenti a adzakazi awiri aja, koma sanapeze kalikonse. Atatuluka mu tenti ya Leya, analowa ya Rakele. 34Koma Rakele anatengadi milungu ija ndi kuyiika mʼkati mwa chokhalira cha pa ngamira, iye nʼkukhalapo. Choncho Labani anafunafuna mu tenti monse koma wosapeza kanthu.

35Rakele anati kwa abambo ake, “Pepanitu musandikwiyire mbuye wanga chifukwa choti sinditha kuyimirira pamaso panu chifukwa ndili kumwezi.” Choncho Labani anafunafuna koma sanayipeze milungu ija.

36Yakobo anapsa mtima nafunsa Labani mwaukali kuti, “Kodi ndalakwa chiyani? Ndi tchimo lanji limene ndachita kuti muchite kundisaka chonchi? 37Chifukwa chiyani mwafunyulula katundu wanga? Ndipo mwapeza chiyani cha inu pamenepa? Chimene mwapezapo chiyikeni poyera pamaso pa abale anu ndi anga kuti atiweruze.

38“Ndakhala nanu kwa zaka makumi awiri tsopano ndipo nkhosa ndi mbuzi zanu sizinapoloze, kapena ine kudyapo nkhosa za mʼkhola mwanu. 39Chiweto chikakhadzulidwa ndi chirombo, sindinkabwera nacho kwa inu. Ineyo ndinkalipira. Inuyo munkandilipiritsa kalikonse kobedwa masana kapena usiku. 40Moyo wanga unali wotere: Dzuwa limanditentha masana ndipo usiku ndimazunzika ndi kuzizira. Tulo sindimalipeza konse. 41Zinthu zinali chonchi kwa zaka makumi awiri zimene ndinali mʼnyumba mwanu. Ndinakugwirirani ntchito kwa zaka khumi ndi zinayi chifukwa cha ana anu aakazi awiri ndipo zaka zina zisanu ndi chimodzi chifukwa cha ziweto zanu, ndipo munandisinthira malipiro kakhumi konse. 42Akanapanda kukhala nane Mulungu wa abambo anga, Mulungu wa Abrahamu ndi Mulungu amene Isake ankamuopa, mosakayika inu mukanandichotsa chimanjamanja. Koma Mulungu waona zovuta zanga ndi kulimbikira ntchito kwanga, ndipo usiku wapitawu anakudzudzulani.”

43Labani anayankha Yakobo nati, “Ana aakaziwa ndi anga, ana awo ndi anganso. Ziwetozi ndi zanga. Chilichonse ukuona apa ndi changa. Koma tsopano ndingachite chiyani ndi ana anga aakaziwa kapena ndi ana awo? 44Tsono, tiye tichite pangano pakati pa iwe ndi ine, ndipo likhale mboni pakati pathu.”

45Choncho Yakobo anayimiritsa mwala ngati chipilala. 46Nati kwa abale ake, “Tutani miyala ina.” Choncho anawunjika miyalayo, ndipo anadya chakudya atakhala pa mbali pa muluwo. 47Labani anawutcha muluwo Yegara-sahaduta, ndipo Yakobo anawutcha Galeeda.

48Labani anati, “Mulu uwu ndi mboni pakati pa inu ndi ine lero.” Ndi chifukwa chake unatchedwa Galeeda. 49Unatchedwanso Mizipa, chifukwa iye anati, “Yehova aonetsetsa kuti palibe mmodzi mwa ife adzaswe panganoli ngakhale titatalikirana. 50Ngati ukazunza ana anga kapena kukwatira akazi enanso, ngakhale kuti palibe wina amene ali nafe pano, koma kumbukira kuti Mulungu ndiye mboni pakati pathu.”

51Labani anatinso kwa Yakobo, “Taona pano pali miyala ndi chipilala chimene ndayimika pakati pa iwe ndi ine. 52Mulu wa miyala uwu ndi chipilalachi ndi mboni. Ine sindidzadutsa mulu wa miyalawu kudzalimbana ndi iwe. Iwenso usadzadutse mulu wa miyalawu kudzalimbana nane. 53Mulungu wa Abrahamu ndi Mulungu wa Nahori ndiye adzatiweruze.”

Choncho Yakobo analumbira mʼdzina la Mulungu amene Isake, abambo ake ankamuopa. 54Yakobo anapereka nsembe pa phiri paja, ndipo anayitana abale ake kuti adzadye chakudya. Atadya chakudya anagona pa phiri pomwepo.

55Mmamawa wake, Labani anapsompsona zidzukulu zake ndi ana ake nawadalitsa. Kenaka ananyamuka kubwerera ku mudzi.
