1 Mose 43:1-34

Yakob Mma No San Kɔ Misraim

1Saa bere no mu no, na ɔkɔm no ano da so yɛ den wɔ asase no so nyinaa. 2Enti bere a aduan a wɔkɔtɔ fii Misraim bae no reyɛ asa no, wɔn agya Yakob ka kyerɛɛ wɔn se, “Monsan nkɔ nkɔtɔ aduan kakra mmra bio.”

3Nanso Yuda ka kyerɛɛ nʼagya Yakob se, “Owura no sua kyerɛɛ yɛn denneennen se, ‘Sɛ moamfa mo nua kumaa no anka mo ho amma a, munnsi mʼanim ha bio.’ 4Sɛ wobɛma yɛne yɛn nua kumaa no akɔ de a, ɛno de, yɛbɛsan akɔ akɔtɔ aduan no bi abrɛ wo. 5Nanso sɛ woamma yɛamfa no ankɔ de a, yɛrenkɔ, efisɛ owura no suaa denneennen se, ‘Sɛ mo nua kumaa no nka mo ho a, munnsi mʼanim bio.’ ”

6Israel bisaa ne mma no se, “Adɛn nti na moka kyerɛɛ owura no se mowɔ nua kumaa bi wɔ hɔ, na mode saa ɔhaw yi abɛto me so?”

7Anuanom no buaa wɔn agya Israel se, “Owura no nyaa adagyew, tɔɔ ne bo ase bisaa yɛn ne yɛn abusuafo ho nsɛm nyinaa se, ‘Mo agya da so te ase ana? Mowɔ onua foforo bi ka mo ho?’ Nsɛm a obisaa yɛn no na yebuaa no. Na yennim sɛ ɔbɛka se, ‘Momfa mo nua kumaa no mmra.’ ”

8Ɛhɔ na Yuda ka kyerɛɛ nʼagya Israel se, “Fa yɛn nua no hyɛ me nsa, na yensi mu nkɔ ntɛm nkɔtɔ aduan no bi mmra, na ɔkɔm ankum yɛn ne wo ne yɛn mma. 9Mʼankasa mɛhwɛ abofra no so. Sɛ mamfa no amma a, bisa me. Sɛ mamfa no amma, ammegyina wʼanim ha, amma woanhu sɛ wo ba no ni a, saa asodi no nna me so me nkwanna nyinaa. 10Sɛ yɛantwentwɛn yɛn nan ase a, anka saa bere yi, yɛakɔ aba bɛyɛ mprenu.”

11Afei, wɔn agya Israel ka kyerɛɛ wɔn se, “Sɛ meyɛ ho hwee na ɛrenyɛ yiye de a, ɛno de, momfa asase yi so nnepa a bi ne akyenkyennuru kakra, ɛwo kakra, aduhuam, kurobow, nkate ne ɔsonkoran aba nhyɛ mo nkotoku mu, nkɔyɛ owura no ayɛ. 12Sika a mode rekɔ no nso, monyɛ no mmɔho efisɛ ɛsɛ sɛ mosan de sika a kan no mode kɔe na ɔsan de hyɛɛ mo nnesoa mu bae no kɔma no. Ebia na ɛyɛɛ no anipaso. 13Momfa mo nua no nso nka mo ho, na munsi mu ntɛmntɛm nkɔ. 14Otumfo Nyankopɔn nnyina mo akyi, na owura no nhu mo mmɔbɔ, na onyaa mo nua panyin Simeon, na ɔmfa Benyamin nso nka mo ho, na mo nyinaa nsan mmra. Sɛ ɛsɛ sɛ midi wɔn wu ho awerɛhow nso a, minni asɛm biara ka.”

15Enti Israelmma no faa akyɛde ahorow a wɔde rekɔ akɔyɛ owura no ayɛ no, ne wɔn sika mmɔho abien, ne wɔn nua kumaa Benyamin kaa wɔn ho, sii mu kɔe. Woduu Misraim no, wokoyii wɔn ho adi kyerɛɛ Yosef. 16Bere a Yosef huu sɛ Benyamin ka wɔn ho no, ɔka kyerɛɛ ne fi somfo panyin no se, “Fa nkurɔfo no kɔ me fi, na kum aboa bi, na wɔmfa nnoa aduan, na awia me ne wɔn bedidi.”

17Ɔsomfo panyin no yɛɛ sɛnea Yosef kae no ma ɔde nkurɔfo no kɔɔ Yosef fi. 18Ɔde wɔn duu Yosef fi no, wosuroe. Wɔkae se, “Gyama esiane dwetɛ a yɛbɛtɔɔ aduan a edi kan no wɔde hyehyɛɛ yɛn nkotoku mu no nti na ɔde yɛn aba ha. Ɔpɛ sɛ ɔde korɔn to yɛn so, na ɔfa yɛn sɛ ne nkoa, na ɔsan fa yɛn mfurum no nyinaa.”

19Woduu Yosef fi kwan no ano no, wɔkɔɔ Yosef somfo panyin no nkyɛn. 20Wɔka kyerɛɛ no se, “Yɛn wura, yɛsrɛ wo, yɛbaa ha bere bi a atwa mu bɛtɔɔ aduan. 21Bere a yɛresan akɔ yɛn kurom a ade sae, na yɛsoɛsoɛɛ no, asoɛe hɔ na yebuebuee yɛn nkotoku ano, na yehuu sɛ obiara sika a okurae a anka ɔde rekɔtɔ aburow no hyɛ ne kotoku no mu pɛpɛɛpɛ. Ɛno nti, yɛasan de aba. 22Yɛasan de sika foforo aba sɛ yɛde rebɛtɔ aduan. Yennim onipa ko a ɔde saa sika no hyehyɛɛ yɛn nkotoku no mu.”

23Ɔsomfo panyin no ka kyerɛɛ wɔn se, “Ɛnyɛ asɛm biara. Munnsuro. Onyame a mosom no ne mo agya Nyame a ɔsom no no na ɔde saa sika no hyehyɛɛ mo nkotoku no mu maa mo. Na mo sika no de, yegyei.” Afei, oyii Simeon fii afiase hɔ de no brɛɛ wɔn.

24Ɔsomfo panyin no de wɔn kɔɔ Yosef fi, maa wɔn nsu hohoroo wɔn anan ase, na ɔmaa wɔn mfurum no nso aduan dii. 25Wɔboaboaa akyɛde a wɔde bɛma Yosef no ano de twɛn no, efisɛ na wɔate sɛ wobedidi wɔ fie hɔ awia no.

26Bere a Yosef bae no, anuanom no buu no nkotodwe, de wɔn akyɛde no maa no. 27Yosef bisaa wɔn sɛnea wɔn ho te. Ɔtoaa so se, “Mo agya akwakoraa a mokaa ne ho asɛm no ho te dɛn? Ɔda so te ase ana?”

28Wobuaa no se, “Wʼakoa a ɔyɛ yɛn agya no ho ye. Ɔda so te ase.” Wɔde obu ne nidi bɔɔ wɔn mu ase wɔ nʼanim.

29Bere a nʼani tɔɔ ne na ba Benyamin anim no, obisae se, “Oyi ne mo nua kumaa a mokaa ne ho asɛm kyerɛɛ me no ana?” Ɔtoaa so se, “Me ba, Onyankopɔn nnom wo!” 30Yosef huu ne nua kumaa Benyamin no, ne werɛ howee, enti ɔyɛɛ ntɛm fii adi kɔhyɛɛ ne pia mu kosui.

31Osu wiee no, ɔhohoroo nʼanim, san bae de animia kae se, “Momma yennidi!”

32Wɔtoo Yosef pon wɔ baabi, na wɔtoo anuanom no nso pon wɔ baabi wɔ ɔdan koro no ara mu. Misraimfo a wɔyɛ Yosef asomfo no nso didii wɔ baabi foforo, efisɛ Misraimfo no mmu Hebrifo, na wɔne wɔn ato nsa adidi. 33Wɔde Yosef nuanom no tenatenaa ase mpanyin mu. Ɛyɛɛ saa maa anuanom no de ahodwiriw hwehwɛɛ wɔn ho wɔn ho anim. 34Wotitii nnuan no fi Yosef pon so kɔmaa wɔn no, na Benyamin de no dɔɔso sen ne nua biara de mpɛn anum. Ɛmaa wɔne Yosef de anigye ne ahosɛpɛw didi nomee.

Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Genesis 43:1-34

Ulendo Wachiwiri wa ku Igupto

1Njala inakula kwambiri mʼdzikomo. 2Tsono atatha kudya tirigu yense amene anakatenga ku Igupto, Yakobo anati kwa ana ake aja, “Pitani kuti mukatigulire chakudya china pangʼono.”

3Koma Yuda anati kwa iye, “Munthu uja anatichenjeza monenetsa kuti, ‘Simudzandionanso ine pokhapokha mutabwera ndi mngʼono wanu.’ 4Mukalola kuti mngʼono wathuyu apite nafe, ndiye ife tidzapita kukakugulirani chakudya. 5Koma mukapanda kumulola, ife sitipita, chifukwa munthuyo anatiwuza kuti, ‘Simudzandionanso pokhapokha mutabwera ndi mngʼono wanuyo.’ ”

6Tsono Israeli anafunsa kuti, “Bwanji inu munandiputira mavuto oterewa pomuwuza munthuyo kuti muli ndi mʼbale wanu wina?”

7Iwo anayankha, “Munthuyo ankangofunsafunsa za ife ndi za banja lathu. Iye anatifunsa kuti, ‘Kodi abambo anu akanali ndi moyo? Kodi muli ndi mʼbale wanu wina?’ Ife tinkangoyankha mafunso ake. Ife tikanadziwa bwanji kuti adzanena kuti, ‘Mubwere naye kuno mʼbale wanu’?”

8Ndipo Yuda anati kwa Israeli abambo ake, “Muloleni mnyamatayo apite ndi ine, ndipo tinyamuka nthawi yomweyo, kuti ife ndi inu pamodzi ndi ana athu tikhale ndi moyo. 9Ine ndidzipereka kuti ndikhale chikole cha moyo wa mnyamatayu. Ine ndidzamuteteza. Ngati sindibwera naye ndi kumupereka kwa inu, ndidzakhala wolakwa pamaso panu moyo wanga wonse. 10Mmene zililimu, tikanapanda kuchedwa, bwenzi titapita ndi kubwerako kawiri.”

11Tsono abambo awo Israeli anawawuza kuti, “Ngati pafunika kutero, ndiye muchite izi: Ikanimo zipatso zabwino kwambiri za dziko lino mʼmatumba mwanu ndi kumutengera munthuyo ngati mphatso. Mumutengere mafuta wopaka pangʼono, uchi pangʼono, mafuta wonunkhiritsa chakudya, mule, mtedza ndi alimoni. 12Mutenge ndalama zokwanira. Ndalama zina nʼzokamubwezera zija anakuyikirani mʼmatumba anu zija. Mwina anangolakwitsa. 13Mutengeninso mngʼono wanuyu ndi kubwerera kwa munthuyo msanga. 14Ndipo Mulungu Wamphamvuzonse akuchitireni chifundo pamaso pa munthuyo kuti akamulole mʼbale wanu wina uja ndi Benjamini kuti abwerere ndi inu. Kukakhala kulira, ndine wolira basi.”

15Choncho abale aja anatenga mphatso, ndalama zokwanira ndi Benjamininso. Iwo anafulumira kupita ku Igupto ndipo anakaonekera kwa Yosefe. 16Yosefe ataona Benjamini ali pamodzi ndi abale ake, anati kwa wantchito wa mʼnyumba mwake, “Atengereni anthu awa ku nyumba kwanga, ndipo uphe nyama ndi kukonza bwino chakudya popeza amenewa adya ndi ine masana ano.”

17Wantchitoyo anachita monga momwe Yosefe ananenera, ndipo anawatengera abale aja ku nyumba kwa Yosefe. 18Tsono anthu aja anachita mantha ataona kuti akuwatengera ku nyumba kwa Yosefe. Mʼmaganizo awo ankanena kuti, “Atibweretsa kuno chifukwa cha ndalama zija zinabwezeredwa mʼmatumba athu poyamba paja. Ameneyu akufuna kuti atipanikize ndi kutigwira ukapolo natilanda abulu athu.”

19Choncho atafika pa khomo la nyumba ya Yosefe anamuyandikira wantchito wa Yosefe nayankhula naye kuti, 20“Pepani mbuye wathu, ife tinabweranso ulendo woyamba kudzagula chakudya 21koma titafika pa malo ena kuti tigone, tinatsekula matumba athu ndipo aliyense wa ife anapeza ndalama zake momwe zinalili zili pakamwa pa thumba lake. Ndiye tabwerera nazo. 22Tabweretsanso ndalama zina kuti tigule chakudya. Sitikudziwa kuti kaya ndani anayika ndalamazo mʼmatumba athu.”

23Koma iye anati, “Mitima yanu ikhale pansi ndipo musachite mantha. Mulungu wanu, Mulungu wa abambo anu, anakuyikirani chumacho mʼmatumba anu. Ine ndinalandira ndalama zanu.” Ndipo anakawatulutsira Simeoni.

24Wantchito uja anawalowetsa anthuwo mʼnyumba ya Yosefe, nawapatsa madzi kuti asambe mapazi awo. Anadyetsanso abulu awo. 25Abale aja anakonzeratu mphatso zawo zija kuti adzapereke kwa Yosefe, popeza anamva kuti Yosefe adzadya komweko masana.

26Yosefe atafika ku nyumbako, iwo anapereka mphatso zija namuweramira pansi. 27Yosefe anawafunsa za moyo wawo kenaka anati, “Kodi abambo anu wokalamba amene munkandiwuza aja ali bwanji? Ali ndi moyobe?”

28Iwo anayankha kuti, “Mtumiki wanu abambo athu akanali ndi moyo ndipo ali bwino.” Ndipo anamugwadira namuweramira pansi.

29Pomwazamwaza maso Yosefe anaona Benjamini, mʼbale wake weniweni wa bere limodzi, ndipo anafunsa, “Kodi uyu ndiye mʼbale wanu wamngʼono kwambiri amene munkandiwuza uja?” Kenaka anati, “Ambuye akukomere mtima mwana wanga.” 30Kenaka Yosefe anafulumira kutuluka chifukwa mtima wake unadzaza ndi chifundo cha mngʼono wake ndipo anafuna kulira. Tsono anakalowa mʼchipinda chakechake nakalira kumeneko.

31Atatha kupukuta misozi mʼmaso mwake anatuluka, ndipo modzilimbitsa analamula kuti chakudya chibwere.

32Anamupatsira Yosefe chakudya payekha, abale ake aja pawokha, ndiponso Aigupto amene ankadya pamodzi ndi iye nawonso pawokha. Izi zinali choncho chifukwa Aigupto ankanyansidwa kudya pamodzi ndi Ahebri. 33Abale aja anawakhazika patsogolo pa Yosefe. Iwo anawakhazika monga mwa mabadwidwe awo kuyambira woyamba kubadwa mpaka wotsirizira; ndipo ankangoyangʼanitsitsana modabwa. 34Tsono ankawagawira chakudya kuchokera pa tebulo la Yosefe. Koma chakudya cha Benjamini chinkaposa cha ena onsewa kasanu. Motero anadya ndi kumwa mpaka kukhuta, ndipo anasangalala pamodzi ndi Yosefe.
