Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Genesis 44:1-34

Chikho Chasiliva Mʼthumba la Benjamini

1Pambuyo pake Yosefe analamulira wantchito wa mʼnyumba mwake kuti, “Adzazire chakudya anthuwa mʼmatumba mwawo monga mmene anganyamulire, ndipo uwayikire ndalama zawo pakamwa pa matumba awowo. 2Tsono uyike chikho changa cha siliva chija, pakamwa pa thumba la wamngʼono kwambiriyu pamodzi ndi ndalama zake za chakudya” Ndipo iye anachita monga Yosefe ananenera.

3Mmawa kutacha anthu aja analoledwa kuti apite ndi abulu awo. 4Atangotuluka mu mzinda muja, koma asanapite patali, Yosefe anati kwa wantchito wake, “Nyamuka atsatire anthu aja msanga. Ndipo ukawapeza, uwafunse kuti, ‘Bwanji mwabwezera zoyipa ndi zabwino? 5Mwaberanji chikho chimene mbuye wanga amamweramo ndi kugwiritsa ntchito akafuna kuwombeza? Chimene mwachitachi ndi chinthu choyipa.’ ”

6Wantchito uja atawapeza ananena mawu anawuzidwa aja. 7Koma iwo anati kwa iye, “Kodi mbuye wanga mukuneneranji zimenezi? Sizingatheke ndi pangʼono pomwe kuti antchito anufe nʼkuchita zoterozo ayi! 8Paja ife pobwera kuchokera ku Kanaani tinatenga ndalama kubwezera zimene tinazipeza mʼmatumba mwathu. Ndiye pali chifukwa chanji kuti tikabe siliva kapena golide mʼnyumba mwa mbuye wanu? 9Ngati wantchito wanu wina pano atapezeka nacho chikhocho, ameneyo aphedwe ndipo ena tonsefe tidzakhala akapolo anu, mbuye wathu.”

10Iye anati, “Chabwino, tsono zikhale monga mwaneneramu. Komatu aliyense amene angapezeke nacho chikhocho adzakhala kapolo wanga, ndipo ena nonsenu muzipita mwaufulu.”

11Tsono onse anafulumira kutsitsa pansi aliyense thumba lake ndi kulitsekula. 12Kenaka anayamba kufufuza, kuyambira pa wamkulu mpaka pa wamngʼono. Ndipo chikhocho chinapezeka mʼthumba mwa Benjamini. 13Apo onse anangʼamba zovala zawo ndi chisoni. Ndipo anasenzetsa abulu katundu wawo nabwerera ku mzinda konkuja.

14Pamene Yuda ndi abale ake ankafika ku nyumba kwa Yosefe nʼkuti Yosefe akanali komweko. Ndipo anadzigwetsa pansi pamaso pake. 15Yosefe anafunsa kuti, “Nʼchiyani mwachitachi? Kodi simudziwa kuti munthu ngati ine ndikhoza kuona zinthu mwakuwombeza?”

16Yuda anayankha, “Kodi tinganenenji kwa mbuye wanga? Tinena chiyani? Tingadzilungamitse bwanji? Mulungu waulula kulakwa kwa antchito anu. Ndipo tsopano ndife akapolo a mbuye wanga, ife tonse pamodzi ndi amene wapezeka ndi chikhocho.”

17Koma Yosefe anati, “Sindingachite choncho ayi! Yekhayo amene wapezeka ndi chikhocho ndi amene akhale kapolo wanga. Ena nonsenu, bwererani kwa abambo anu mu mtendere.”

18Ndipo Yuda anamuyandikira iye nati, “Chonde mbuye wanga mulole kapolo wanune ndinene mawu pangʼono kwa mbuye wanga. Musandipsere mtima, kapolo wanune, popeza inu muli ngati Farao yemwe. 19Mbuye wanga munafunsa akapolo anufe kuti, ‘Kodi muli ndi abambo anu kapena mʼbale wanu?’ 20Ndipo ife tinayankha, ‘Inde mbuye wathu, ife tili ndi abambo athu wokalamba, ndipo pali mwana wamwamuna wamngʼono amene anabadwa abambo athu atakalamba kale. Mʼbale wake anafa ndipo ndi yekhayo mʼmimba mwa amayi ake amene watsala ndipo abambo ake amamukonda.’

21“Ndipo inu munatiwuza kuti, ‘Mubwere naye kwa ine kuti ndidzamuone ndekha.’ 22Ife tinati, ‘Mbuye wathu, mnyamatayo sangasiye abambo ake, akawasiya ndiye kuti abambo akewo adzafa.’ 23Koma inu munatichenjeza kuti, ‘Pokhapokha mutabwera naye mʼbale wanu wamngʼono kwambiri, simudzandionanso.’ 24Ndiye pamene tinafika kwa kapolo wanu, abambo athu tinawawuza zonse zimene munanena.

25“Abambo athu anatiwuza kuti, ‘Pitaninso mukagule kachakudya pangʼono.’ 26Koma tinati, ‘Sitingathe kupitanso. Sitingapite pokhapokha mngʼono wathuyu apite nafe chifukwa munthu uja anati sitingaonane naye ngati mngʼono wathuyu sakhala nafe.’

27“Koma kapolo wanu, abambo athu anatiwuza kuti, ‘Inu mukudziwa kuti mkazi wanga anandiberekera ana aamuna awiri. 28Mmodzi wa iwo anandisiya. Ine ndimati anadyedwa ndi chirombo popeza sindinamuonenso mpaka lero. 29Tsopano mukanditengeranso uyu, nakaphedwa mu njira ndiye kuti mudzandikankhira ku manda ndi chisoni.’

30“Tsono ngati tizibwerera kwa mtumiki wanu, abambo athu popanda mnyamatayu, amene moyo wa abambo ake uli pa iyeyu, 31ndipo akakaona kuti mnyamatayu palibe, basi akafa. Ife tidzakhala ngati takankhira abambo athu ku manda ndi chisoni. 32Ndiponsotu ine ndinadzipereka kwa abambo anga kukhala chikole chotsimikiza kuti mnyamatayu ndidzamuteteza, ndipo ndinati, ‘Ngati sindibwerera naye mnyamatayu kwa inu, ndiye kuti ndidzakhala wochimwira inu abambo anga moyo wanga wonse.’

33“Tsono, chonde mulole kuti ine kapolo wanu nditsalire kuno kukhala kapolo wa mbuye wathu mʼmalo mwa mnyamatayu. Koma iye apite pamodzi ndi abale akewa. 34Ndingabwerere bwanji kwa abambo anga ngati sindingapite ndi mnyamatayu? Ayi! Sindifuna kukaona tsoka limene lingakagwere abambo anga.”

1 Mose 44:1-34

Yosef Amma Benyamin Ankɔ

1Afei, Yosef hyɛɛ ne somfo panyin no se, “Fa aduan dodow biara a mmarima no betumi asoa no hyɛ wɔn nkotoku no amaama, na fa obiara sika nso hyɛ ne kotoku mu ma no. 2Na fa me dwetɛ kuruwa no ka akumaa no aduan no sika ho, na fa hyɛ ne kotoku no mu.” Na ɔyɛɛ sɛnea Yosef kaa no pɛpɛɛpɛ.

3Ade kyee anɔpa no, ogyaa anuanom no ne wɔn mfurum no kwan. 4Wɔannu akyiri baabiara, na Yosef ka kyerɛɛ ne somfo panyin no se, “Tiw nkurɔfo no ntɛm, na sɛ woto wɔn a, bisa wɔn se, ‘Adɛn nti na mode bɔne tua papa ka? Adɛn nti na moawia me dwetɛ kuruwa? 5Ɛnyɛ saa kuruwa yi a me wura nom ano na ɔhwɛ mu ka nhumusɛm no ni? Eyi yɛ bɔne kɛse a moayɛ.’ ”

6Ɔkɔtoo wɔn no, otii saa asɛm koro yi ara mu kyerɛɛ wɔn. 7Nanso anuanom no buaa no se, “Adɛn nti na yɛn wura keka saa nsɛm yi? Ɛmpare wo nkoa sɛ wɔbɛyɛ ade a ɛte saa! 8Sika a yehuu wɔ yɛn nkotoku mu no, yɛansan amfa amfi Kanaan ammrɛ mo ana? Adɛn nti na ɛsɛ sɛ yewia dwetɛ anaa sikakɔkɔɔ fi wo wura fi? 9Sɛ wuhu saa kuruwa no wɔ wo nkoa no biara nkyɛn a, okum na ɛsɛ sɛ wukum saa onipa no. Na sɛ ɛba saa nso a, yɛn nyinaa bɛyɛ wo wura nkoa.”

10Ɔsomfo no buae se, “Eye, na nea owiae no nko na ɔbɛyɛ mʼakoa; na mo a moaka no bɛfa mo ho adi.”

11Anuanom no nyinaa yiyii wɔn nnesoa no fii mfurum no so guu fam, sansan wɔn nkotoku no ano. 12Na ɔsomfo no fii ase, hwehwɛɛ wɔn nkotoku no mu fi ɔpanyin no so kosii akumaa no so. Wohuu kuruwa no wɔ Benyamin kotoku no mu. 13Ɛbaa saa no, anuanom no sunsuan wɔn ntade mu. Afei, wɔn nyinaa san hyehyɛɛ wɔn nnesoa no wɔ wɔn mfurum no so, san kɔɔ kurow no mu.

Anuanom No Bu Yosef Nkotodwe

14Bere a Yuda ne ne nuanom no koduu kurow no mu hɔ no, na Yosef da so wɔ ne fi hɔ. Enti wɔn nyinaa totow wɔn ho guu fam wɔ nʼanim. 15Yosef bisaa wɔn se, “Dɛn ade na moayɛ yi? Munnim sɛ onipa a ɔte sɛ me nam nhumusɛm so betumi ahu biribiara mu ana?”

16Yuda buae se, “Anoyi bɛn na yebetumi ayi wɔ me wura anim? Asɛm bɛn na yɛwɔ ka? Yɛbɛyɛ dɛn na yɛatumi ama woahu sɛ yenni saa asɛm yi ho fɔ? Onyame ada yɛn wʼasomfo afɔdi yi adi. Yɛne nea wohuu kuruwa no wɔ no nkyɛn no nyinaa yɛ yɛn wura nkoa.”

17Nanso Yosef kae se, “Ɛmpare me sɛ mɛyɛ ade a ɛte saa. Onipa a wohuu kuruwa no wɔ ne nkyɛn no nko ara na ɔbɛyɛ mʼakoa. Mo a moaka no de, monsan nkɔ mo agya nkyɛn asomdwoe mu.”

Yuda Srɛ Ma Benyamin

18Yuda sɔre kɔɔ Yosef anim, ka kyerɛɛ no se, “Ma me a meyɛ wʼakoa no kwan na me ne wo, me wura, nkasa. Ɛwɔ mu sɛ wo ne Farao yɛ pɛ de, nanso mesrɛ wo, nya ntoboase ma wʼakoa. 19Me wura bisaa nʼasomfo no se, ‘Mowɔ agya anaa onuabarima bi?’ 20Na yebuae se, ‘Yɛwɔ agya a wabɔ akwakoraa ne yɛn kaakyiri a ɔwoo no ne nkwakoraabere mu. Ne nuabarima a ɔka ne ho no awu. Na ɔno nko ara ne ne na ba a waka. Nʼagya pɛ nʼasɛm yiye.’

21“Na ɔka kyerɛɛ wʼasomfo se, ‘Momfa no mmra, na menhwɛ no.’ 22Yɛka kyerɛɛ me wura se, ‘Abarimaa no rentumi ntew ne ho mfi nʼagya ho. Na sɛ ɛba sɛ ɔtew ne ho fi nʼagya ho a, nʼagya no bewu.’ 23Ɛnna woka kyerɛɛ wʼasomfo se. ‘Sɛ moamfa mo nua kumaa no anka mo ho amma a, munnsi mʼanim bio.’ 24Yɛsan kɔɔ wʼakoa, yɛn agya nkyɛn no, yɛkaa wo a woyɛ yɛn wura no nsɛm a woka kyerɛɛ yɛn no nyinaa kyerɛɛ no.

25“Na yɛn agya kae se, ‘Monsan nkɔ bio nkɔtɔ aduan kakra mmra.’ 26Nanso yɛka kyerɛɛ yɛn agya se, ‘Yɛrentumi nkɔ, gye sɛ yɛn nua kumaa no ka yɛn ho. Sɛ yɛamfa yɛn nua kumaa no anka yɛn ho ankɔ a, yɛrentumi nkɔ owura no anim.’

27“Wʼakoa, yɛn agya, ka kyerɛɛ yɛn se, ‘Munim sɛ me ne me yere woo mmabarima baanu. 28Wɔn mu baako fii me nkyɛn kɔe a manhu no bio ma mekae se, “Aboa bi atetew no pasaa.” Efi saa bere no, minhuu no bio. 29Sɛ mofa oyi fi me nkyɛn, na asiane bi kosiane no wɔ kwan so a, me nso, mede awerɛhow bewu bi.’

30“Enti saa bere yi, sɛ yekopue fi wʼakoa, yɛn agya, anim na abofra yi nka yɛn ho, ne sɛnea ne koma da abofra no so fa no, 31sɛ ohu sɛ abofra no nka yɛn ho a, obewu.

33“Afei, mesrɛ wo, ma wʼakoa nsi abofra no anan mu wɔ ha, na ma abofra no ne ne nuabarimanom no nsan nkɔ. 34Na sɛ abofra no anka me ho ankɔ a, mɛyɛ dɛn na makopue wɔ mʼagya anim? Dabi! Merentumi nnyina ahohia a ɛbɛto mʼagya wɔ saa asɛm yi ho no ano.”
