3Nanso, Yona dwane firii Awurade anim na ɔde nʼani kyerɛɛ Tarsis. Ɔkɔɔ Yopa, na ɛhɔ ɔkɔnyaa ɛhyɛn a ɛrekɔ Tarsis. Ɔtuaa ka kɔtenaa ɛhyɛn no mu, sɛ ɔrefiri Awurade anim akɔ Tarsis.

Adwuma bɛn na woyɛ? Ɛhe na wo fire? Ɔman bɛn so na wofiri? Ɛhefoɔ ne wo nkurɔfoɔ?”

9Ɔbuaa sɛ, “Meyɛ Hebrini, na mesom Awurade, ɔsoro Onyankopɔn a, ɔbɔɔ ɛpo ne asase.”

10Yei bɔɔ wɔn hu, enti wɔbisaa Yona sɛ, “Ɛdeɛn na woayɛ?” (Na wɔnim sɛ ɔredwane afiri Awurade nkyɛn, ɛfiri sɛ na waka saa akyerɛ wɔn dada).

11Na ahum no kɔ so tu dendeenden ara. Enti wɔbisaa no sɛ, “Ɛdeɛn na yɛnyɛ wo a ɛbɛma ahum yi ano abrɛ ase ama yɛn?”

12Yona buaa wɔn sɛ, “Momma me so nto me ntwene ɛpo yi mu, na ano bɛdwo. Menim sɛ me enti na ahum kɛseɛ yi retu mo so.”

13Mmarima no yɛɛ deɛ wɔbɛtumi biara sɛ wɔbɛhare ɛhyɛn no akɔ mpoano. Nanso, wɔantumi, ɛsiane sɛ na ɛpo so ahum no ano ayɛ den asene kane no. 14Afei wosu frɛɛ Awurade sɛ, “Ao Awurade yɛsrɛ wo mma yɛn nwuwu sɛ yɛama ɔbarima yi ahwere ne nkwa enti. Mma yɛn nni fɔ wɔ ɔbarima yi mogya ho, ɛfiri sɛ, Ao Awurade wayɛ deɛ wo pɛ.” 15Afei, wɔmaa Yona so too no twenee ɛpo no mu, na ɛpo a na ɛrehuru soɔ no yɛɛ dinn. 16Yei maa mmarima no suroo Awurade pa ara na wɔbɔɔ afɔdeɛ maa Awurade, na wɔhyɛɛ no bɔ.

Jona 1:1-17

Jona Kũũrĩra Jehova

11:1 Math 12:39-41; 2Ath 14:25Na rĩrĩ, ndũmĩrĩri ya Jehova nĩyakinyĩire Jona mũrũ wa Amitai, akĩĩrwo atĩrĩ: 2“Ũkĩra, ũthiĩ itũũra rĩrĩa inene rĩa Nineve,1:2 Itũũra rĩa Nineve rĩakirwo nĩ Nimurodi (Kĩam 10:11), na rĩgĩtuuo itũũra inene rĩa Ashuri nĩ Senakeribu. na ũrĩhunjĩrie ũkĩrĩkaanagia, nĩgũkorwo waganu warĩo nĩwambatĩte ũgakinya o harĩ niĩ.”

31:3 Thab 139:7; Josh 19:46; Thaam 4:13No Jona agĩũkĩra nĩguo orĩre Jehova, akĩerekera Tarishishi. Agĩikũrũka nginya Jopa na agĩkorerera marikabu yathiiaga Tarishishi. Aarĩkia kũrĩha thogora wa rũgendo, akĩingĩra marikabu nĩguo athiĩ Tarishishi, orĩre Jehova.

41:4 Thab 107:23-26; Atũm 27:18-19No rĩrĩ, Jehova akĩrehe rũhuho rũnene kũu iria-inĩ, gũkĩgĩa kĩhuhũkanio kĩnene mũno, hakuhĩ marikabu ĩyo yunĩkange. 5Atwari ayo othe makĩmaka na o mũndũ agĩkaĩra ngai yake; magĩcooka magĩikia mĩrigo iria-inĩ, nĩgeetha marikabu ĩhũthe.

No Jona nĩaikũrũkĩte kũu marikabu thĩinĩ, na agakoma toro mũnene. 61:6 Jon 3:8; Thab 107:28Tondũ ũcio mũnene wa marikabu agĩthiĩ harĩ we, akĩmũũria atĩrĩ, “Wee ũngĩhota gũkoma atĩa? Ũkĩra ũkaĩre ngai yaku! No gũkorwo yahota gũtũigua twage gũthira.”

71:7 Josh 7:10-18; 1Sam 14:42Ningĩ atwari a marikabu makĩĩrana atĩrĩ, “Ũkai tũcuuke mĩtĩ nĩguo tũmenye nũũ ũrehete mũtino ũyũ.” Magĩcuuka mĩtĩ naguo mũtĩ ũkĩgwĩra Jona.

8Nĩ ũndũ ũcio, makĩmũũria atĩrĩ, “Ta twĩre, nũũ ũtũmĩte thĩĩna ũyũ wothe ũtũkore? Wee-rĩ, ũrutaga wĩra ũrĩkũ? Uumĩte kũ? Wĩ wa bũrũri ũrĩkũ? Wĩ wa rũrĩrĩ rũrĩkũ?”

91:9 Thab 96:9; Atũm 17:24; Kĩam 1:9Nake Jona akĩmacookeria atĩrĩ, “Niĩ ndĩ Mũhibirania na ndĩ mũhooi Jehova, Ngai wa igũrũ, ũrĩa wombire iria na thĩ nyũmũ.”

10Ũndũ ũcio ũkĩmeekĩra guoya, makĩmũũria atĩrĩ, “Nĩ atĩa wĩkĩte?” (Nĩmamenyete atĩ nĩ kũũra ooragĩra Jehova, tondũ nĩameerĩte ũguo.)

11Narĩo iria rĩgĩkĩrĩrĩria kũhuhũkania. Nĩ ũndũ ũcio makĩmũũria atĩrĩ, “Ũkwenda tũgwĩke atĩa nĩgeetha tũhoorererwo nĩ iria?”

121:12 2Sam 24:17Nake akĩmacookeria atĩrĩ, “Njoyai mũnjikie iria-inĩ na nĩrĩkũhoorera. Niĩ nĩnjũũĩ atĩ nĩ mahĩtia makwa matũmĩte kĩhuhũkanio gĩkĩ kĩnene kĩmũkore.”

13No andũ acio makĩĩrutanĩria mũno gũcookia marikabu yao hũgũrũrũ-inĩ cia iria. No makĩremwo, nĩgũkorwo iria nĩrĩakĩrĩrĩirie kũhuhũkania makĩria ma ũrĩa rĩarĩ mbere. 141:14 Gũcook 21:8; Dan 4:35Nao magĩkaĩra Jehova makiuga atĩrĩ, “Twagũthaitha Wee Jehova, ndũkareke tũkue nĩ ũndũ wa muoyo wa mũndũ ũyũ. Ndũgatũcookererie mahĩtia ma kũũraga mũndũ ũtehĩtie, nĩgũkorwo Wee Jehova, wĩkĩte ũrĩa wonete arĩ wega.” 151:15 Luk 8:24Makĩoya Jona makĩmũikia iria-inĩ, narĩo iria rĩu rĩahurutanaga rĩkĩhoorera. 16Mona ũguo andũ acio magĩĩtigĩra Jehova mũno; na makĩrutĩra Jehova igongona, na makĩĩhĩta mĩĩhĩtwa mbere yake.

171:17 Mar 4:14; Math 12:40Nake Jehova agĩathĩrĩria thamaki nene mũno ĩmerie Jona, nake Jona agĩikara nda ya thamaki ĩyo matukũ matatũ, mũthenya na ũtukũ.
