1Yudahene Yehoiakim dii adeɛ ne mfeɛ mmiɛnsa mu no, Babiloniahene Nebukadnessar baa Yerusalem de nʼakodɔm bɛtuaa ɔman no. 2Awurade maa no dii Yudahene Yehoiakim so nkonim. Ɛberɛ a Nebukadnessar resane akɔ Babilonia no, ɔtasee akronkronneɛ bi firii Onyankopɔn asɔredan mu, de kɔɔ nʼabosomdan mu kɔguu adekorabea hɔ wɔ Babilonia asase so.

3Afei, ɔhene no ka kyerɛɛ nʼapiafoɔhene Aspenas sɛ, ɔmfa mmeranteɛ no bi a wɔfiri Yuda adehyeɛ abusua mu, ne wɔn a wɔfiri mmusua atitire mu a wɔde wɔn aba Babilonia sɛ nneduafoɔ no mmra ahemfie hɔ, 4mmeranteɛ ahoɔdenfoɔ a wɔn ho nni dɛm, na wɔn ho yɛ fɛ.

6Mmeranteɛ baanan bi a wɔyii wɔn no ne Daniel, Hanania, Misael ne Asaria a wɔn nyinaa firi Yuda abusuakuo mu. 7Apiafoɔhene no de din foforɔ totoo wɔn. Ɔtoo Daniel Beltesasar; ɔtoo Hanania Sadrak; ɔtoo Misael Mesak ɛnna ɔtoo Asaria Abednego.

8Na Daniel yɛɛ nʼadwene sɛ ɔrenni aduane, nnom nsã a ɔhene no de bɛbrɛ wɔn no, ɔsrɛɛ apiafoɔhene no sɛ ɔmma no ɛkwan na wangu ne ho fi. 9Na Onyankopɔn maa Daniel nyaa apiafoɔhene no anim adɔeɛ ne mmɔborɔhunu. 10Apiafoɔhene no ka kyerɛɛ Daniel sɛ, “Me wura ɔhene no ahyɛ sɛ monni saa aduane yi, na monnom nsã no.

11Daniel ka kyerɛɛ ɔsomfoɔ a apiafoɔhene no de no asi ɔno ne Hanania, Misael ne Asaria so no sɛ, 12“Ma yɛn nhahamma ne nsuo dadu, na fa sɔ yɛn hwɛ. 13Afei fa yɛn toto mmeranteɛ afoforɔ no a wɔredi ɔhene nnuane pa no ho, na hwɛ sɛdeɛ yɛte. Ɛno akyi yɛ wo nkoa sɛdeɛ wohunu.” 14Enti, ɔsomfoɔ no penee asɛm a Daniel de too nʼanim no so, sɔɔ wɔn hwɛɛ dadu.

Danieli 1:1-21

Maphunziro a Danieli ku Babuloni

1Chaka chachitatu cha ufumu wa Yehoyakimu mfumu ya Yuda, Nebukadinezara mfumu ya ku Babuloni inabwera ndi kuzinga mzinda wa Yerusalemu ndi kuwuthira nkhondo. 2Ndipo Ambuye anapereka Yehoyakimu mfumu ya ku Yuda mʼdzanja lake, pamodzi ndi zina mwa zida zotumikira mʼNyumba ya Mulungu. Iye anazitenga napita nazo ku nyumba ya mulungu wake ku Babuloni ndi kuziyika mʼnyumba yosungiramo chuma cha mulungu wake.

3Tsono mfumu inalamula Asipenazi, mkulu wa nduna zake kuti abwere nawo ena mwa Aisraeli ochokera mʼbanja laufumu ndi la olemekezeka, 4achinyamata wopanda chilema, okongola, aluso mu nzeru zonse, okhala ndi chidziwitso, achangu pophunzira, odziwa kutumikira mʼnyumba ya mfumu. Ndipo anati awaphunzitsenso kuwerenga chiyankhulo cha Ababuloni. 5Ndipo mfumu imawapatsa tsiku ndi tsiku gawo la chakudya ndi vinyo wa ku nyumba yaufumu, ndi kuti awaphunzitse kwa zaka zitatu, ndipo kenaka adzayambe kutumikira mfumu.

6Pakati pa amenewa panali ena ochokera ku Yuda: Danieli, Hananiya, Misaeli ndi Azariya. 7Mkulu wa nduna za mfumu anawapatsa mayina atsopano: Danieli anamutcha Belitesezara; Hananiya anamutcha Sadirake; Misaeli anamutcha Mesaki; ndi Azariya anamutcha Abedenego.

8Koma Danieli anatsimikiza mtima kuti asadzidetse ndi chakudya ndi vinyo wa mfumu, ndipo anapempha chilolezo kwa mkulu wa nduna za mfumu kuti asadzidetse mwa njira imeneyi. 9Ndipo Mulungu anafewetsa mtima wa ndunayo kuti amukomere mtima ndi kumuchitira chifundo Danieli, 10koma ndunayo inamuwuza Danieli kuti, “Ine ndikuchita mantha ndi mbuye wanga mfumu, amene wapereka chakudya ndi chakumwa chanu. Kodi akuoneni inu owonda kuposa anzanu a misinkhu yanu pa chifukwa chanji? Mfumu ikhoza kundidula mutu chifukwa cha iwe.”

11Ndipo Danieli anati kwa kapitawo amene anali mkulu wa nduna za mfumu amene anamuyika kuti ayangʼanire Danieli, Hananiya, Misaeli ndi Azariya, 12“Chonde mutiyese ife akapolo anu pa masiku khumi: mutipatse masamba okha kuti tidye ndi madzi akumwa. 13Ndipo mudzafananize maonekedwe athu ndi a anyamata amene akudya chakudya cha mfumu, ndi kuti mudzachite ndi anyamata anu monga momwe mudzawaonere.” 14Choncho anawavomera ndipo anawayesa pa masiku khumi.

15Pakutha pa masiku khumi iwo anaoneka athanzi ndi odya bwino kuposa aliyense wa anyamata amene ankadya chakudya cha mfumu aja. 16Choncho kapitawo anawachotsera chakudya ndi vinyo za ku nyumba yaufumu zija nawapatsa ndiwo zamasamba basi.

17Kwa anyamata anayiwa Mulungu anapereka chidziwitso ndi kuzindikira bwino mitundu yonse ya zolembedwa ndi za maphunziro. Ndipo Danieli ankatanthauzira masomphenya ndi maloto a mitundu yonse.

18Ndipo kumapeto kwa masiku amene mfumu inayika kuti adzaonetse anyamatawa ku nyumba yake, mkulu wa nduna za mfumu uja anawapereka iwo kwa Nebukadinezara. 19Mfumu inayankhula nawo, ndipo panalibe wofanana ndi Danieli; Hananiya Misaeli ndi Azariya; Choncho analowa ndi kukhala otumikira mfumu. 20Nthawi zonse mfumu ikawafunsa zonse zofuna nzeru ndi chidziwitso, inkapeza kuti iwo anali oposa amatsenga ndi owombeza onse a mu ufumu wake wonse mopitirira muyeso.

21Ndipo Danieli anali kumeneko mpaka chaka choyamba cha ufumu wa Koresi.
