Abayisirayiri Babonyaabonyezebwa

11:1 Lub 46:8Gano ge mannya ga batabani ba Isirayiri, era ye Yakobo, abajja naye mu Misiri; buli omu n’ab’omu nnyumba ye:

2Lewubeeni, ne Simyoni, ne Leevi ne Yuda,

3ne Isakaali, ne Zebbulooni, ne Benyamini,

4ne Ddaani, ne Nafutaali, ne Gaadi, ne Aseri.

51:5 Lub 46:26Abaana bonna awamu Yakobo yennyini be yazaala baali bawera nsanvu1:5 ebiwandiiko ebimu bigamba nsanvu; kyokka ebiwandiiko ebyasangibwa mu Nnyanja ey’Omunnyo bigamba nsanvu mu bataano; Yusufu ye, yali yabeera dda mu Misiri.

61:6 Lub 50:26Awo Yusufu n’afa; ne baganda be ne bonna ab’omulembe ogwo ne bafa. 71:7 Lub 46:3; Ma 26:5; Bik 7:17Naye Abayisirayiri ne bazaala nnyo, ne baala, ne bayitirira obungi, era ne baba ba maanyi nnyo; ne bajjula ekitundu ekyo mwe baali.

8Awo ne waddawo kabaka omuggya mu Misiri ataamanya Yusufu. 91:9 Zab 105:24-25N’agamba abantu be nti, “Abayisirayiri batuyitiriddeko obungi era ba maanyi. 101:10 a Zab 83:3 b Bik 7:17-19Ka tubasalire amagezi baleme kweyongera bungi. Kubanga singa wagwawo olutalo ne beegatta n’abalabe baffe, ne batulwanyisa, balituddukako ne bava mu nsi eno.”

111:11 a Kuv 3:7 b Lub 15:13; Kuv 2:11; 5:4; 6:6-7 c Lub 47:11 d 1Bk 9:19; 2By 8:4Bwe batyo ne babateekako bannampala bababonyeebonye n’emirimu egy’obuwaze; ne bazimbira Falaawo ebibuga eby’amaterekero, Pisomu ne Lamusesi. 12Naye gye baakoma okutuntuzibwa, ate gye baakoma okweyongera obungi, ne basaasaana wonna. Abamisiri ne bakyawa abaana ba Isirayiri ate nga bwe babatya. 131:13 Ma 4:20Ne bongera okutuntuza abaana ba Isirayiri n’obukambwe. 141:14 Kuv 2:23; 6:9; Kbl 20:15; Zab 81:6; Bik 7:19Obulamu bw’Abayisirayiri ne bubakaayirira nga bakozesebwa ng’abaddu; nga batabula ebbumba okukola amatoffaali; n’emirimu egya buli ngeri egikolebwa mu nnimiro. Mu mirimu egyo gyonna baabakozesanga n’amaanyi era n’obukambwe.

Falaawo Awa Abazaalisa Ekiragiro

15Awo kabaka w’e Misiri n’ayogera n’abazaalisa b’Abaebbulaniya, amannya gaabwe Sifira ne Puwa1:15 Sifira ne Puwa baali abazaalisa Abaebbulaniya., n’abagamba nti, 16“Bwe mubanga muzaalisa abakazi Abaebbulaniya, ne mulaba ng’omwana wabulenzi, mumuttanga bussi, naye bw’abanga owoobuwala, mumulekanga n’alama.” 171:17 a nny 21; Nge 16:6 b Dan 3:16-18; Bik 4:18-20; 5:29Naye abazaalisa baali batya Katonda, nga bamussaamu ekitiibwa, ebyo kabaka w’e Misiri bye yabalagira ne batabikolerako, n’abaana abalenzi nabo ne babaleka ne balama. 18Kabaka w’e Misiri n’ayita abazaalisa, n’ababuuza nti, “Kiki ekibakozesezza bwe mutyo, okuleka abaana abalenzi ne balama?”

191:19 Yos 2:4-6; 2Sa 17:20Abazaalisa, ne baddamu Falaawo nti, “Abakazi Abaebbulaniya tebali ng’abakazi Abamisiri; bo balamu bulungi era ba maanyi; abazaalisa we bagendera okubatuukako nga bamaze okuzaala.”

201:20 nny 12; Nge 11:18; Is 3:10Katonda, n’ayisanga bulungi abazaalisa n’abawa emikisa. Abaana ba Isirayiri ne beeyongera nnyo obungi era ne baba ba maanyi nnyo. 211:21 1Sa 2:35; 2Sa 7:11, 27-29; 1Bk 11:38Olwokubanga abazaalisa bassangamu Katonda ekitiibwa, nga bamutya, n’abawa ezzadde.

221:22 Bik 7:19Falaawo n’alyoka alagira abantu be bonna nti, “Buli mwana wabulenzi Abaebbulaniya gwe banaazaalanga mumusuulanga mu mugga Kiyira, naye owoobuwala mumulekanga.”
