1 Mose 19:1-38

Sodom Ne Gomora Amumuyɛ

1Ɔsoro abɔfoɔ baanu no duruu Sodom anwummerɛ. Na Lot te kuro no ɛpono ano. Ɛberɛ a Lot hunuu sɛ wɔreba no, ɔsɔre kɔhyiaa wɔn ɛkwan. Ɔbuu nkotodwe, de nʼanim butuu fam, nam so maa wɔn akwaaba. 2Ɔkaa sɛ, “Me wuranom, mesrɛ mo, mommɛsoɛ mo akoa fie, na memma mo nsuo nhohoro mo nan ho, na monna, na ɔkyena anɔpatutuutu, moatoa mo akwantuo no so.”

Nanso, abɔfoɔ no buaa sɛ, “Dabi, mmom, yɛbɛda adwabɔeɛ.”

3Nanso, Lot kɔɔ so srɛɛ wɔn anibereɛ so enti, wɔne no kɔɔ ne fie. Ɔtoo burodo a wamfa mmɔreka amfra ɛda no ara, de too wɔn ɛpono, ma wɔdiiɛ. 4Ansa na wɔbɛkɔ akɔda no, Sodomfoɔ mpanin ne mmɔfra nyinaa firi kuro no afanan bɛtwaa efie no ho hyiaeɛ. 5Wɔteateaam frɛɛ Lot bisaa no sɛ, “Mmarima a wɔbaa wo nkyɛn anadwo yi wɔ he? Fa wɔn brɛ yɛn, na yɛne wɔn nkɔda.”

6Lot firii adi, too ne ɛpono mu, kɔhyiaa Sodom mmarima no. 7Ɔka kyerɛɛ wɔn sɛ, “Me nuanom, mesrɛ mo, monnyɛ amumuyɛsɛm a ɛte saa. 8Montie! Mewɔ mmammaa baanu a wɔnhunuu mmarima da. Momma memfa wɔn mmrɛ mo, na deɛ mopɛ biara, moayɛ wɔn. Na saa mmarima baanu yi deɛ, mommfa mo nsa nka wɔn, ɛfiri sɛ, wɔaba me suhyɛ banbɔ mu.”

9Ɛdɔm no teateaam sɛ, “Twe wo ho! Woyɛ hwan? Yɛn na yɛama wo baabi atena wɔ ha, na afei deɛ worebɛkyerɛ yɛn deɛ yɛnyɛ. Yɛne wo bɛdi no anibereɛ so asene nkurɔfoɔ no.” Ɛdɔm no twi faa Lot so, na wɔhyɛɛ aseɛ bubuu apono no.

10Nanso, ɔsoro abɔfoɔ baanu a wɔhyɛ efie hɔ no pue bɛtwee Lot kɔhyɛɛ efie hɔ, too ɛpono no mu. 11Ɔsoro abɔfoɔ baanu no maa mpanin ne mmɔfra a wɔgyinagyina ɛpono no akyiri no ani firafiraeɛ enti, wɔanhunu ɛpono no koraa.

Sodom Ne Gomora Sɛeɛ

12Afei, ɔsoro abɔfoɔ baanu no bisaa Lot sɛ, “Wowɔ abusuafoɔ bi wɔ kurom ha sɛ ɛyɛ wo nsenom, wo mmammaa, wo mmammarima anaa obi foforɔ bi a ɔyɛ wo ho onipa? Yi wɔn nyinaa firi ha, 13ɛfiri sɛ, yɛrebɛsɛe saa kuro yi pasaa. Amumuyɛsɛm a ɛtia nnipa yi a aduru Awurade anim no ano den enti, wasoma yɛn sɛ yɛmmɛsɛe kuro yi.”

14Enti, Lot firii adi, kɔbɔɔ mmarima bi a wɔahyɛ bɔ sɛ wɔbɛwareware ne mmammaa no amaneɛ. Ɔka kyerɛɛ wɔn sɛ, “Monyɛ no ntɛm, na momfiri kuro yi mu, ɛfiri sɛ, Awurade Onyankopɔn rebɛsɛe kuro yi!” Nanso, na saa mmarima yi susu sɛ ɔredi fɛ bi.

15Anɔpahema no, ɔsoro abɔfoɔ no hyɛɛ Lot sɛ, “Ntɛm! Ka wo ho, na fa wo yere ne wo mmammaa baanu a wɔwɔ ha no firi ha kɔ; anyɛ saa a, wɔde mo bɛfra kuro no, asɛe mo.”

16Ɔtwentwɛnee ne nan ase no, ɔsoro abɔfoɔ no sosɔɔ Lot ne ne yere ne ne mmammaa baanu no nsa, twee wɔn, de wɔn firii kuro no mu asomdwoeɛ mu, ɛfiri sɛ, Awurade hunuu wɔn mmɔbɔ. 17Ɔsoro abɔfoɔ no yii Lot mmammaa baanu no firii kuro no mu ara pɛ, abɔfoɔ no mu baako kaa sɛ, “Monnwane nnye mo kra nkwa; monnhwɛ mo akyiri. Monnnyina baabiara. Monnwane nkɔ mmepɔ no so, anyɛ saa a, mobɛwuwu!”

18Nanso, Lot ka kyerɛɛ wɔn sɛ, “Ao, dabi me wuranom! 19Mo akoa anya mo anim adom, na moayɛ me adɔeɛ kɛseɛ de agye me nkwa. Nanso, me deɛ, merentumi nnwane nkɔ mmepɔ no so, ɛfiri sɛ, mesuro sɛ anhwɛ a, saa amanehunu yi bɛto me, ama mawu. 20Hwɛ, kuro ketewa bi bɛn ha. Mesrɛ mo, momma menkɔhinta hɔ mmom, na manhwere me nkwa. Kuro no nsua anaa?”

21Ɔsoro abɔfoɔ no ka kyerɛɛ Lot sɛ, “Ɛyɛ, mepene wʼabisadeɛ yi so; merensɛe saa kuro ketewa no. 22Ɛnneɛ, dwane kɔ hɔ ntɛm, ɛfiri sɛ, sɛ wonnuruu hɔ a, merenyɛ biribiara.” Ɛfiri saa ɛberɛ no, na wɔfrɛɛ kuro no Soar a aseɛ ne kuro ketewa.

23Ɛberɛ a Lot duruu Soar no, na owia apue. 24Afei, Awurade maa sɔfe ne ogya tɔ firii soro, guu Sodom ne Gomora so. 25Saa ɛkwan yi so na wɔfa de sɛee saa nkuropɔn mmienu ne asasetam no nyinaa. Nnipa a na wɔtete saa nkuropɔn no so ne asase no so afifideɛ nso nyinaa sɛeɛ. 26Nanso, Lot yere twaa nʼani hwɛɛ nʼakyiri ma ɔdanee nkyene esie.

27Adeɛ kyee anɔpatutuutu no, Abraham kɔɔ baabi a ɔgyinaa Awurade anim no. 28Ɔmaa nʼani so hwɛɛ Sodom ne Gomora fam ne asasetam no so nyinaa, hunuu wisie kumɔnn a abua asase no so te sɛ wisie a ɛfiri fononoo mu.

29Ɛberɛ a Onyankopɔn sɛee nkuro a ɛwɔ asase tamaa no so no, Onyankopɔn kaee Abraham, na ɔyii Lot firii ɔsɛeɛ a ɛbaa nkuro a na Lot te so no mu no.

Lot Ne Ne Mmammaa Baanu No

30Afei, Lot ne ne mmammaa baanu no tu firii Soar kɔtenaa ɔbodan bi a na ɛwɔ mmepɔ no mu, ɛfiri sɛ, na ɔsuro sɛ ɔbɛtena Soar. 31Ɛda koro bi, ɔbabaa panin no ka kyerɛɛ akumaa no sɛ, “Yɛn agya abɔ akɔkoraa, na ɔbarima biara nso nni ha a ɔne yɛn bɛda, sɛdeɛ wɔyɛ no ewiase baabiara no. 32Ne saa enti, ma yɛmma yɛn agya nsã nnom, na afei, yɛne no nna, sɛdeɛ ɛbɛyɛ a yɛnam ne so bɛma yɛn ase adɔre.”

33Saa anadwo no, wɔmaa wɔn agya nsã nomeeɛ. Na ɔbabaa panin no ne no kɔdaeɛ. Lot anhunu ɛberɛ korɔ a ne babaa panin no de bɛdaa hɔ ne ɛberɛ korɔ a ɔsɔre kɔeɛ.

34Adeɛ kyeeɛ no, ɔbabaa panin no ka kyerɛɛ akumaa no sɛ, “Nnora anadwo, me ne mʼagya daeɛ. Saa anadwo yi, ma yɛnsane mma no nsã nnom, na wo nso, wo ne no nkɔda, sɛdeɛ ɛbɛyɛ a yɛnam yɛn agya so bɛma yɛn ase adɔre.” 35Saa anadwo no nso, wɔmaa wɔn agya nsã nomeeɛ. Na akumaa no nso ne nʼagya kɔdaeɛ. Bio, Lot anhunu ɛberɛ ko a akumaa no de bɛdaa hɔ ne ɛberɛ ko a ɔsɔre kɔeɛ.

36Enti, Lot ne ne mmammaa baanu no nyinsɛneeɛ. 37Ne babaa panin no woo ɔbabarima, na ɔtoo no edin Moab. Ɔno na ɔyɛ Moabfoɔ agya de bɛsi ɛnnɛ. 38Akumaa no nso woo ɔbabarima, na ɔtoo no edin Ben-Ami; ɔno nso ne Amon mma agya de bɛsi ɛnnɛ.

King James Version

Genesis 19:1-38

1And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; 2And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night. 3And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.

4¶ But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: 5And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them. 6And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, 7And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. 8Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof. 9And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door. 10But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. 11And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.

12¶ And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place: 13For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it. 14And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.

15¶ And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.19.15 are here: Heb. are found19.15 iniquity: or, punishment 16And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.

17¶ And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed. 18And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord: 19Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die: 20Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live. 21And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.19.21 thee: Heb. thy face 22Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.19.22 Zoar: that is, Little

23¶ The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.19.23 risen: Heb. gone forth

24Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; 25And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

26¶ But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

27¶ And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the LORD: 28And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.

29¶ And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.

30¶ And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters. 31And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth: 32Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. 33And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. 34And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. 35And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. 36Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father. 37And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day. 38And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Ben-ammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.
