3Yosef ka kyerɛɛ ne nuabarimanom no se, “Mene Yosef! Mʼagya te ase ana?” Nanso asɛm no bɔɔ wɔn piriw ma wɔtotɔɔ mum wɔ nʼanim.

4Yosef ka kyerɛɛ ne nuabarimanom no se, “Montwiw mmɛn me.” Wotwiw bɛn no no, ɔka kyerɛɛ wɔn se, “Mene mo nuabarima Yosef. Me na motɔn me ma wɔde me kɔɔ Misraim no. 5Mommma biribiara nhaw mo. Na monnkasakasa so sɛ motɔn me ma wɔde me baa ha. Onyankopɔn na ɔyɛe. Ɔno na ɔsomaa me, dii mo anim baa ha sɛ mimmegye mo nkwa. 6Mfe abien ni a ɔkɔm baa asase yi so.

16Bere a wɔtee wɔ Farao fi sɛ Yosef nuanom no aba no, Farao ne ne mpanyimfo a wɔka ne ho no nyinaa ani gyei. 17Farao ka kyerɛɛ Yosef se, “Ka kyerɛ wo nuanom no se, wɔmfa nneɛma nsoasoa wɔn mmoa no, na wɔnkɔ Kanaan asase so, 18na wɔnkɔfa wɔn agya ne wɔn abusuafo nyinaa mmra Misraim asase so ha mmɛtena ha. Ka kyerɛ wɔn se, ‘Farao bɛma mo Misraim asase no fa a eye pa ara atena so. Wobedi asase no so nnepa!’

19“Ka kyerɛ wɔn se, ‘Momfa nteaseɛnam mfi Misraim ha nkɔfa mo yerenom ne mo mma. Momfa mo agya nso nka ho mmra. 20Monnhaw mo ho wɔ mo agyapade ho, efisɛ mede nnepa a ɛwɔ Misraim asase so nyinaa no bi bɛma mo.’ ”

21Enti Yosef maa wɔn nteaseɛnam ne nnuan a wobedi wɔ ɔkwan so, sɛnea Farao hyɛe no. 22Ɔmaa ne nuanom no mu biara atade foforo, nanso Benyamin de, ɔmaa no ntade ahorow anum ne dwetɛ kilogram abiɛsa ne fa. 23Saa nneɛma a edidi so yi nso na Yosef de kɔmaa nʼagya Israel: mfurumnini du a wɔahyehyɛ Misraim nneɛma pa wɔ wɔn so, mfurummmere du a wɔsoso aburow, brodo ne nnuan ahorow ne nʼakwansoduan. 24Ogyaa ne nuanom no kwan, na akwannya no mu no, ɔka kyerɛɛ wɔn se, “Monnkɔkasakasa wɔ ɔkwan so.”

25Enti wofii Misraimman mu kɔɔ wɔn agya Israel nkyɛn wɔ Kanaan asase so. 26Wodui no, wɔde anigye bɔɔ wɔn agya amanneɛ se, “Yosef te ase! Nokwasɛm ni, ɔno na odi Misraiman nyinaa so!” Israel tee saa asɛm no, ne ho dwiriw no. Wannye anni. 27Na bere a wɔkaa nsɛm a Yosef ka kyerɛɛ wɔn sɛ wɔmmɛka no wiee no, na ohuu nteaseɛnam a Yosef de somaa sɛ wɔmfa mmɛfa no no, wɔn agya Yakob ho san no. 28Na Israel kae se, “Magye nsɛm no nyinaa adi.

King James Version

Genesis 45:1-28

1Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his brethren. 2And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard.45.2 wept…: Heb. gave forth his voice in weeping 3And Joseph said unto his brethren, I am Joseph; doth my father yet live? And his brethren could not answer him; for they were troubled at his presence.45.3 troubled: or, terrified 4And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt. 5Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life.45.5 nor…: Heb. neither let there be anger in your eyes 6For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest. 7And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.45.7 to preserve…: Heb. to put for you a remnant 8So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt. 9Haste ye, and go up to my father, and say unto him, Thus saith thy son Joseph, God hath made me lord of all Egypt: come down unto me, tarry not: 10And thou shalt dwell in the land of Goshen, and thou shalt be near unto me, thou, and thy children, and thy children’s children, and thy flocks, and thy herds, and all that thou hast: 11And there will I nourish thee; for yet there are five years of famine; lest thou, and thy household, and all that thou hast, come to poverty. 12And, behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth that speaketh unto you. 13And ye shall tell my father of all my glory in Egypt, and of all that ye have seen; and ye shall haste and bring down my father hither. 14And he fell upon his brother Benjamin’s neck, and wept; and Benjamin wept upon his neck. 15Moreover he kissed all his brethren, and wept upon them: and after that his brethren talked with him.

16¶ And the fame thereof was heard in Pharaoh’s house, saying, Joseph’s brethren are come: and it pleased Pharaoh well, and his servants.45.16 pleased…: Heb. was good in the eyes of Pharaoh 17And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Say unto thy brethren, This do ye; lade your beasts, and go, get you unto the land of Canaan; 18And take your father and your households, and come unto me: and I will give you the good of the land of Egypt, and ye shall eat the fat of the land. 19Now thou art commanded, this do ye; take you wagons out of the land of Egypt for your little ones, and for your wives, and bring your father, and come. 20Also regard not your stuff; for the good of all the land of Egypt is yours.45.20 regard…: Heb. let not your eye spare, etc. 21And the children of Israel did so: and Joseph gave them wagons, according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them provision for the way.45.21 commandment: Heb. mouth 22To all of them he gave each man changes of raiment; but to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver, and five changes of raiment. 23And to his father he sent after this manner; ten asses laden with the good things of Egypt, and ten she asses laden with corn and bread and meat for his father by the way.45.23 laden…: Heb. carrying 24So he sent his brethren away, and they departed: and he said unto them, See that ye fall not out by the way.

25¶ And they went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of Canaan unto Jacob their father, 26And told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt. And Jacob’s heart fainted, for he believed them not.45.26 Jacob’s: Heb. his 27And they told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said unto them: and when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived: 28And Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I will go and see him before I die.
