Twetiatwa Apam

1Abram dii mfeɛ aduɔkron nkron no, Awurade yii ne ho adi kyerɛɛ no kaa sɛ, “Mene Otumfoɔ Onyankopɔn, nante mʼanim na yɛ pɛ. 2Mɛsi apam a ɛda me ne wo ntam no so dua, na mama wʼasefoɔ adɔɔso.”

3Abram de nʼanim butuu fam, na Onyankopɔn ka kyerɛɛ no sɛ, 4“Me fa mu deɛ, saa apam yi na ɛda me ne wo ntam: wobɛyɛ aman bebree agya. 5Wɔremfrɛ wo Abram bio. Wɔbɛfrɛ wo Abraham, ɛfiri sɛ, mayɛ wo aman bebree agya. 6Mɛma wʼasefoɔ adɔɔso. Wɔbɛyɛ amanaman bebree na ahemfo nso afiri wɔn mu. 7Mɛma mʼapam no ayɛ daapem apam a ɛbɛda me ne wo ne wʼasefoɔ ne awoɔ ntoatoasoɔ a ɛbɛba no ntam. Na mɛyɛ wo ne wʼasefoɔ Onyankopɔn. 8Mede Kanaan asase a ɛnnɛ wote so sɛ ɔhɔhoɔ no nyinaa bɛma wo ne wʼasefoɔ a wɔbɛba akyire no nyinaa. Ɛbɛyɛ asase a ɛyɛ wʼagyapadeɛ afebɔɔ. Na mɛyɛ wɔn Onyankopɔn.”

9Afei, Onyankopɔn ka kyerɛɛ Abraham sɛ, “Wo deɛ, ɛsɛ sɛ wo ne wʼasefoɔ ne wʼasefoɔ a wɔbɛba akyire no di mʼapam no so. 10Yei ne mʼapam a ɛda me ne wo ntam a ɛsɛ sɛ wo ne wʼasefoɔ ne wʼasefoɔ a wɔbɛba akyire no di so. Ɛsɛ sɛ wɔtwa ɔbarima biara twetia. 11Ɛsɛ sɛ motwa twetia. Ɛno na ɛbɛyɛ apam a ɛda me ne mo ntam no ho nsɛnkyerɛnneɛ. 12Ɔbarima biara a ɔyɛ wʼaseni a wɔbɛwo no no, ɔdi nnawɔtwe pɛ a, ɛsɛ sɛ wɔtwa no twetia. Nkoa a wɔwoo wɔn wɔ wo fie ne ɔnanani biara a woyii sika tɔɔ no firii ɔmamfrani nkyɛn a ɔnyɛ wʼaseni no nso, ɛsɛ sɛ wɔtwa no twetia saa ara. 13Sɛ wɔwoo no wo fie oo, sɛ nso, wokarii sika kɔtɔɔ no oo, ɛsɛ sɛ wɔtwa no twetia. Saa honam mu apam yi bɛyɛ daapem apam. 14Wɔbɛpam ɔbarima biara a wɔntwaa no twetia no afiri ne nkurɔfoɔ mu, ɛfiri sɛ, saa onipa no anni mʼapam no so.”

15Onyankopɔn sane ka kyerɛɛ Abraham sɛ, “Ɛfa wo yere Sarai ho nso, ɛfiri ɛnnɛ rekɔ, woremfrɛ no Sarai bio. Wobɛfrɛ no Sara. 16Mɛhyira no, na mɛma no awo ɔbabarima ama wo. Mɛhyira no ma wabɛyɛ aman nyinaa maame. Nʼasefoɔ mu na amanaman mu ahemfo bɛfiri.”

17Abraham de nʼanim butuu fam bio. Ɔsere bisaa ne ho sɛ, “Ɛbɛtumi aba sɛ ɔbarima a wadi mfeɛ ɔha bɛwo ɔba anaa? Sara nso a wadi mfeɛ aduɔkron no nso, ɔbɛtumi awo ɔba anaa?” 18Na Abraham ka kyerɛɛ Onyankopɔn sɛ, “Ao, Onyankopɔn ɛnneɛ, hyira Ismael!”

19Na Onyankopɔn kaa sɛ, “Mmom, wo yere Sara bɛwo ɔbabarima ama wo, na wobɛto no edin Isak, a aseɛ ne Sereɛ. Me ne no bɛyɛ daapem apam a ɛbɛtena hɔ ama nʼasefoɔ a wɔbɛba akyire no nyinaa. 20Na Ismael ho asɛm a wokaeɛ no nso, mate. Mɛhyira no ama nʼase adɔre bebree. Ɔbɛyɛ aberempɔn dumienu agya. Na mɛma no ayɛ ɔman kɛseɛ. 21Nanso, me ne Isak a Sara bɛwo no, afe sɛsɛɛ no, na ɛbɛyɛ mʼapam no.” 22Onyankopɔn kasa kyerɛɛ Abraham wieeɛ no, ɔgyaa no hɔ kɔeɛ.

Wɔtwa Abraham Twetia

23Saa ɛda no ara, Abraham faa ne babarima Ismael ne mmarima a wɔwoo wɔn wɔ ne fie ne mmarima a wɔtɔɔ wɔn firii ananafoɔ nkyɛn, twitwaa wɔn nyinaa twetia, sɛdeɛ Onyankopɔn ka kyerɛɛ no no. 24Wɔtwaa Abraham twetia no, na wadi mfeɛ aduɔkron nkron. 25Ne babarima Ismael nso, wɔtwaa no twetia no, na wadi mfeɛ dumiɛnsa. 26Saa ɛda no ara, na wɔtwaa Abraham ne ne ba Ismael nyinaa twetia. 27Ɔbarima biara a ɔwɔ Abraham fie, wɔn a wɔwoo wɔn wɔ Abraham fie ne ɔbarima biara a wɔtɔɔ no firii ɔnanani bi nkyɛn no, wɔtwitwaa wɔn nyinaa twetia, kaa Abraham ho.

Twetiatwa Apam

1Abram dii mfe aduɔkron akron no, Awurade yii ne ho adi kyerɛɛ no kae se, “Mene Otumfo Nyankopɔn, nantew mʼanim na yɛ pɛ. 2Mesi apam a ɛda me ne wo ntam no so dua, na mama wʼasefo adɔɔso.”

3Abram de nʼanim butuu fam, na Onyankopɔn ka kyerɛɛ no se, 4“Me fa mu de, saa apam yi na ɛda me ne wo ntam: wobɛyɛ aman bebree agya. 5Wɔremfrɛ wo Abram bio. Wɔbɛfrɛ wo Abraham, efisɛ mayɛ wo aman bebree agya. 6Mɛma wʼasefo adɔɔso. Wɔbɛyɛ amanaman bebree na ahemfo nso afi wɔn mu. 7Mɛma mʼapam no ayɛ daapem apam a ɛbɛda me ne wo ne wʼasefo ne awo ntoatoaso a ɛbɛba no ntam. Na mɛyɛ wo ne wʼasefo Nyankopɔn. 8Mede Kanaan asase a nnɛ wote so sɛ ɔhɔho no nyinaa bɛma wo ne wʼasefo a wɔbɛba akyiri no nyinaa. Ɛbɛyɛ wʼagyapade a wo ne obi mmɔ mu hye afebɔɔ. Na mɛyɛ wɔn Nyankopɔn.”

9Afei, Onyankopɔn ka kyerɛɛ Abraham se, “Wo de, ɛsɛ sɛ wo ne wʼasefo ne wʼasefo a wɔbɛba akyiri no di mʼapam no so. 10Eyi ne mʼapam a ɛda me ne wo ntam a ɛsɛ sɛ wo ne wʼasefo ne wʼasefo a wɔbɛba akyiri no di so. Ɛsɛ sɛ wotwa ɔbarima biara twetia. 11Ɛsɛ sɛ mutwa twetia. Ɛno na ɛbɛyɛ apam a ɛda me ne mo ntam no ho nsɛnkyerɛnne. 12Ɔbarima biara a ɔyɛ wʼaseni a wɔbɛwo no no, odi nnaawɔtwe pɛ a, ɛsɛ sɛ wotwa no twetia. Nkoa a wɔwoo wɔn wɔ wo fi ne ɔnanani biara a wuyii sika tɔɔ no fii ɔmamfrani nkyɛn a ɔnyɛ wʼaseni no nso, ɛsɛ sɛ wotwa no twetia saa ara. 13Sɛ wɔwoo no wo fi oo, sɛ nso wɔkarii sika kɔtɔɔ no oo, ɛsɛ sɛ wotwa no twetia. Saa honam mu apam yi bɛyɛ daapem apam. 14Wɔbɛpam ɔbarima biara a wontwaa no twetia no afi ne nkurɔfo mu, efisɛ saa onipa no anni mʼapam no so.”

15Onyankopɔn san ka kyerɛɛ Abraham se, “Ɛfa wo yere Sarai ho nso, efi nnɛ rekɔ, woremfrɛ no Sarai bio. Wobɛfrɛ no Sara. 16Mehyira no, na mɛma no awo ɔbabarima ama wo. Mehyira no ama wabɛyɛ aman nyinaa na. Nʼasefo mu na amanaman mu ahemfo befi.”

17Abraham de nʼanim butuw fam bio. Ɔserew bisaa ne ho se, “Ebetumi aba sɛ ɔbarima a wadi mfe ɔha bɛwo ɔba ana? Sara nso a wadi mfe aduɔkron no nso, obetumi awo ɔba ana?” 18Na Abraham ka kyerɛɛ Onyankopɔn se, “Onyankopɔn ɛno de, hyira Ismael!”

19Na Onyankopɔn kae se, “Mmom, wo yere Sara bɛwo ɔbabarima ama wo, na wobɛto no din Isak, a ase ne Serew. Me ne no bɛyɛ daapem apam a ɛbɛtena hɔ ama nʼasefo a wɔbɛba akyiri no nyinaa. 20Na Ismael ho asɛm a wokae no nso, mate. Mehyira no ama nʼase adɔ bebree. Ɔbɛyɛ abirɛmpɔn dumien agya. Na mɛma no ayɛ ɔman kɛse. 21Nanso me ne Isak a Sara bɛwo no afe sesɛɛ no na ɛbɛyɛ mʼapam no.” 22Onyankopɔn kasa kyerɛɛ Abraham wiee no, ogyaw no hɔ kɔe.
