Mawu a Mulungu mu Chichewa Chalero

Genesis 47:1-31

1Yosefe anapita kukamuwuza Farao kuti, “Abambo anga, abale anga pamodzi ndi nkhosa, ngʼombe zawo, ndi antchito awo abwera kuchokera ku dziko la Kanaani ndipo tsopano ali ku Goseni.” 2Iye anapita kwa Farao kuja ndi abale ake asanu, kukawaonetsa.

3Farao anafunsa abale akewo kuti, “Mumagwira ntchito yanji?”

Iwo anamuyankha kuti, “Ife, bwana ndife oweta ziweto, monga ankachitira makolo athu. 4Ife tabwera kudzakhala kuno kwa kanthawi chifukwa njala yafika poopsa ku Kanaani motero kuti kulibe msipu wodyetsera ziweto. Ndiye bwana tiloleni kuti tikhale ku Goseni.”

5Farao anati kwa Yosefe, “Abambo ako ndi abale ako abwera kwa iwe. 6Dziko lonse la Igupto lili mʼdzanja lako. Uwakhazike abambo ako ndi abale ako mʼmalo achonde kwambiri. Akhale ku Goseni. Ndipo ngati ukudziwapo ena mwa iwo amene ali akatswiri pa kuweta ziweto, uwapatse udindo woyangʼanira ziweto zanga.”

7Kenaka Yosefe anapita ndi abambo ake kwa Farao kukawaonetsa, ndipo Yakobo anadalitsa Faraoyo. 8Atatero, Farao anafunsa Yakobo kuti, “Muli ndi zaka zingati?”

9Yakobo anayankha kuti, “Zaka za maulendo anga zakwana 130. Zaka za moyo wanga ndi zowerengeka, komanso zakhala zaka za masautso. Zaka za moyo wanga sizingafanane ndi zaka za moyo wa makolo anga.” 10Atatha kumudalitsa Farao uja, Yakobo anatsanzika nʼkunyamuka.

11Choncho Yosefe anakhazika abambo ake aja ndi abale ake mʼdziko la Igupto. Iye anawapatsa dera la Ramesesi limene linali dziko lachonde kwambiri monga analamulira Farao. 12Yosefe anaperekanso chakudya kwa abambo ake, kwa abale ake ndi kwa onse a mʼnyumba ya abambo ake monga mwa chiwerengero cha ana awo.

Yosefe pa Nthawi ya Njala

13Njala inakula kwambiri motero kuti chakudya chinasowa mʼdziko lonse. Anthu a ku Igupto ndi ku Kanaani analefuka nayo njalayo. 14Yosefe anasonkhanitsa ndalama zonse zimene anthu a mu Igupto ndi Kanaani ankapereka pogula tirigu, ndipo anabwera nazo ku nyumba kwa Farao. 15Anthu a ku Igupto ndi Kanaani ndalama zitawathera, Aigupto onse anabwera kwa Yosefe nati, “Tipatseni chakudya. Nanga tiferenji pamaso panu? Ndalama zathu zatha.”

16Ndipo Yosefe anawayankha kuti, “Bwerani ndi ziweto zanu ndipo tidzasinthana ndi chakudya poti mukuti ndalama zanu zatha.” 17Choncho anthu anabwera ndi ziweto zawo monga akavalo, nkhosa, mbuzi, ngʼombe ndi abulu ndipo Yosefe anawapatsa zakudya.

18Chitatha chaka chimenecho, anthu anapitanso kwa Yosefe chaka chinacho nati, “Ife sitingakubisireni mbuye wathu kuti ndalama zathu zatithera ndipo ziweto zathu zili ndi inu, palibenso choti nʼkukupatsani mbuye wathu kupatula matupi athu ndi dziko lathu. 19Tiferenji ife ndi dziko lathu inu mukuona? Mutipatse chakudya ndipo tidzigulitsa ife ndi minda yathu yomwe. Ife tidzakhala akapolo a Farao. Tipatseni mbewuzo kuti tikhale ndi moyo tisafe ndipo dziko lisachite bwinja.”

20Choncho Yosefe anamugulira Farao dziko lonse la Igupto. Aliyense mu Igupto anagulitsa munda wake chifukwa njala inakula kwambiri. Dziko lonse linasanduka la Farao, 21ndipo Yosefe anawasandutsa anthu onse kukhala akapolo a Farao, kuchokera ku malire a mbali ina ya Igupto kukafika ku malire a mbali ina ya dzikolo. 22Komabe, sanagule minda ya ansembe chifukwa Farao ankawapatsa thandizo lokwanira. Nʼchifukwa chake sanagulitse minda yawo.

23Yosefe anati kwa anthuwo, “Tsono poti ndakugulani inu ndi minda yanu, kugulira Farao. Nayi mbewu kuti mudzale mʼminda yanu. 24Koma podzakolola, mudzapereka gawo limodzi la magawo asanu aliwonse kwa Farao. Magawo anayi enawo adzakhala anu. Zina mudzasunge mbewu ndi zina mudzadye inuyo, mabanja anu ndi ana anu.”

25Iwo anati, “Mwatipulumutsa potichitira zabwinozi, mbuye wathu, tsono tidzakhala akapolo a Farao.”

26Choncho Yosefe anakhazikitsa lamulo limene lilipobe mpaka lero mʼdziko lonse la Igupto kuti limodzi la magawo asanu a zokolola ndi la Farao. Ndi minda ya ansembe yokha imene sinatengedwe kukhala ya Farao.

27Tsono Aisraeli anakhazikika mʼdziko la Igupto ku chigawo cha Goseni. Kumeneko anapeza chuma ndipo anaberekana nachuluka kwambiri.

28Yakobo anakhala ku Igupto zaka 17 ndipo zaka za moyo wake zinali 147. 29Nthawi itayandikira yoti Israeli amwalire, anayitanitsa mwana wake Yosefe nati kwa iye, “Ngati ukundikondadi monga abambo ako, ika dzanja lako pansi pa ntchafu yanga ndipo ulonjeze kuti udzaonetsa kukoma mtima ndi kukhulupirika kwako kwa ine kuti sudzayika mtembo wanga kuno ku Igupto. 30Ine ndikagona pamodzi ndi makolo anga. Choncho ndikadzamwalira udzanditulutse mu Igupto muno ndipo ukayike mtembo wanga kumene anayikidwa makolo anga.”

Yosefe anati, “Ndidzachita monga mwanenera.”

31Yakobo anati, “Lumbira kwa ine.” Yosefe analumbira kwa iye, ndipo Israeli anapembedza Mulungu atatsamira ndodo yake.

1 Mose 47:1-31

1Yakob mma no beduu Misraim asase so no, Yosef kɔka kyerɛɛ Farao se, “Mʼagya ne me nuanom no de wɔn nguan ne wɔn anantwi ne wɔn agyapade nyinaa afi Kanaan asase so aba, na wɔwɔ Gosen asase so.” 2Yosef yii ne nuabarimanom no mu baanum de wɔn kokyia Farao.

3Farao bisaa anuanom no se, “Adwuma bɛn na moyɛ?”

Wobuaa no se, “Wo nkoa yɛ nguanhwɛfo, sɛnea na yɛn agyanom nso yɛ nguanhwɛfo no.” 4Anuanom no toaa so se, “Yɛaba ha sɛ ananafo a yɛrebɛtena ha kakra, efisɛ ɔkɔm no ano yɛ den yiye wɔ Kanaan asase so hɔ, na wo nkoa nguan nnya aduan nni. Enti yɛresrɛ wo kwan na yɛatena Gosen asase so ha.”

5Farao ka kyerɛɛ Yosef se, “Wʼagya ne wo nuanom aba wo nkyɛn. 6Misraim asase nyinaa hyɛ wo nsa. Ma wʼagya ne wo nuabarimanom baabi pa na wɔntena. Ma wɔntena Gosen asase so. Sɛ wunim wɔn mu bi a wɔwɔ mmoayɛn ho nimdeɛ a, ma wɔnhwɛ me nguan so mma me.”

Yakob Hyira Farao

7Afei, Yosef kɔfaa nʼagya Yakob de no bekyiaa Farao ma Yakob hyiraa no. 8Farao bisaa Yakob se, “Woadi mfe ahe?”

9Yakob buaa Farao se, “Madi mfe ɔha ne aduasa a ɔhaw ne abɛbrɛsɛ wɔ mu. Minnu mʼagyanom nkwanna a wɔde tenaa asase so no ho hwee.” 10Na Yakob hyiraa Farao, na ofii nʼanim kɔe.

11Enti Yosef bɔɔ nʼagya ne ne nuanom no atenase wɔ Misraim asase so. Ɔmaa wɔn agyapade wɔ asase no fa baabi a eye pa ara wɔ Rameses mansin mu, sɛnea Farao hyɛe no. 12Yosef maa nʼagya ne ne nuanom no aduan sɛnea wɔn mma dodow te.

13Na aduan nni hɔ baabiara, efisɛ na ɔkɔm a aba no ano ayɛ den yiye. Saa ɔkɔm yi kaa Misraim ne Kanaan asase nyinaa ma emu nnipa ne nnɔbae twintwamee. 14Yosef prapraa Misraim ne Kanaan asase so sika nyinaa a onya fii aduantɔn no mu no baa Farao ahemfi. 15Bere a nnipa a wɔwɔ Misraim ne Kanaan asase so ho sika nyinaa sae no, Misraim nnipa nyinaa baa Yosef nkyɛn bɛka kyerɛɛ no se, “Yɛn ho sika nyinaa asa, enti ma yɛn aduan nni! Adɛn nti na ɛsɛ sɛ yewuwu?”

16Yosef buaa wɔn se, “Sɛ mo sika asa de a, momfa mo nguan ne mo anantwi mmra mmegye aduan.” 17Enti wɔde wɔn mmoa no brɛɛ Yosef. Mmoa a wɔde wɔn bɛsesaa aduan no yɛ apɔnkɔ, nguan, mmirekyi, anantwi ne mfurum. Saa afe no mu no, wɔde wɔn mmoa nyinaa bɛsesaa aduan.

18Afe akyi no, Misraimfo no nyinaa baa Yosef nkyɛn bɛkae se, “Yɛrentumi mfa biribiara nhintaw yɛn wura. Yɛn ho sika nyinaa asa, na yɛn anantwi nso yɛ wo dea. Hwee nni hɔ bio a yebetumi de abrɛ wo, yɛn wura, sɛ yɛn nnipadua ne yɛn nsase nko. 19Adɛn nti na ɛsɛ sɛ yɛhwere yɛn nkwa ne yɛn nsase wɔ wʼanim! Afei, ma yɛmfa yɛn nnipadua ne yɛn nsase nyinaa mmɛsesa aduan. Yɛde yɛn ho ne yɛn nsase nyinaa bɛkɔ nkoasom mu. Ma yɛn aburow, na ɔkɔm ankum yɛn, amma asase no nso anna mpan.”

20Enti Yosef tɔɔ Misraim nsase nyinaa maa Farao. Esiane ɔkɔm no ano den nti, Misraimfo no tɔn wɔn nsase no nyinaa. Ɛyɛɛ saa ma nsase no nyinaa bedii Farao nsam. 21Efi Misraim ti kosi ti, Yosef de mu nnipa nyinaa bɛyɛɛ ne nkoa. 22Asɔfo nko ara nsase na wantɔ, efisɛ asɔfo no de, na Farao atwa anoduan bi de ama wɔn. Ne saa nti na wɔn de, wɔantɔn wɔn nsase no.

23Yosef ka kyerɛɛ nnipa no se, “Afei a matɔ mo ne nsase de ama Farao yi, mo nso, munnye aburow nkodua. 24Na sɛ aburow no yɛ yiye, na mutwa a, momfa nkyɛmu anum mu baako mmrɛ Farao. Na nkyɛmu anum mu anan a ɛbɛka no, mo ne mo fifo ne mo mma nni bi, na munnyaw bi nso a mubedua.”

25Wɔkae se, “Anokwa, woagye yɛn nkwa. Ka kyerɛ yɛn wura Farao se, onnye yɛn nto mu, na yɛnyɛ nkoa.”

26Ɛnam saa asɛm yi so maa mmara a Yosef hyɛe sɛ wɔmfa asase no so nnɔbae nyinaa mu nkyɛmu anum mu baako mma Farao no da so wɔ hɔ besi nnɛ. Asɔfo no nsase nko ara na ankodi Farao nsam.

Yosef Hyɛ Nʼagya Bɔ

27Israelfo no bɔɔ atenase wɔ Gosen mansin a ɛwɔ Misraim asase so no so. Wonyaa agyapade wɔ hɔ, na wɔn ase nso fɛee yiye.

28Yakob tenaa Misraim mfe dunson. Odii mfirihyia ɔha ne aduanan ason ansa na ɔrewu. 29Eduu sɛ Yakob rebewu no, ɔfrɛɛ ne ba Yosef, ka kyerɛɛ no se, “Me ba, sɛ wodɔ me de a, ka ntam di nsew sɛ, wobɛyɛ me adɔe, adi me nokware. Sɛ miwu a, nsie me wɔ Misraim ha. 30Sɛ miwu a, momfa me mfi Misraim ha, nkosie me wɔ faako a wosiee me mpanyimfo no.”

Yosef hyɛɛ bɔ se, “Medi asɛm a woaka no so.”

31Yakob kaa bio se, “Ka ntam kyerɛ me.” Yosef kaa ntam no, na Israel nso butuw ne pema so sɔree Onyankopɔn.
