Ekyamateeka Olwokubiri 1:1-46

Musa Ayogera nga Katonda bw’Anaakulembera Abayisirayiri

1Bino bye bigambo Musa bye yategeeza Abayisirayiri bonna nga bali ku ludda olw’ebuvanjuba w’omugga Yoludaani mu ddungu, mu Alaba okwolekera Sufu, wakati wa Palani ne Toferi, ne Labani, ne Kazerosi ne Dizakabu. 21:2 a Kuv 3:1 b Kbl 13:26; Ma 9:23Waliwo olugendo lwa nnaku kkumi na lumu1:2 Mu biro biri entambula yali ya njawulo okuva e Kolebu1:2 Kolebu Erinnya ly’Olusozi Kolebu eddala ly’Olusozi Sinaayi. okutuuka e Kadesubanea, ng’okutte ekkubo eriyitira ku Lusozi Seyiri.

31:3 a Kbl 33:38 b Ma 4:1-2Awo ku lunaku olw’olubereberye olw’omwezi ogw’ekkumi n’ogumu, mu mwaka ogw’amakumi ana, Musa n’ategeeza abaana ba Isirayiri ebyo byonna Mukama bye yamulagira okubabuulira. 41:4 a Kbl 21:21-26 b Kbl 21:25 c Kbl 21:33-35; Yos 13:12Mu kiseera ekyo Musa yali amaze okuwangula Sikoni kabaka w’Abamoli eyabeeranga mu Kesuboni, ne Ogi kabaka w’e Basani eyabeeranga mu Asutaloosi ne mu Ederei.

5Ku ludda lw’eyo olw’ebuvanjuba olw’omugga Yoludaani, mu nsi ya Mowaabu, Musa n’atandika okulangirira amateeka gano ng’ayogera nti:

61:6 a Kbl 10:13 b Kuv 3:1Mukama Katonda waffe yatugamba nga tuli ku Kolebu nti, ‘Ebbanga lye mumaze ku lusozi luno limala; 71:7 a Yos 10:40 b Ma 11:24kale musitule mukyuke, mutambule nga mwolekera ensi ey’ensozi ey’Abamoli, ne mu baliraanwa baabwe yonna mu Alaba, mu nsozi, ne mu bisenyi, ne mu Negebu, ne ku lubalama lw’ennyanja, ne mu nsi ya Bakanani n’ey’Abalebanooni, okutuukira ddala ku mugga omunene, Omugga Fulaati. 81:8 Lub 12:7; 15:18; 17:7-8; 26:4; 28:13Mulabe, ensi eyo ngibawadde. Muyingire mwetwalire ensi eyo Mukama Katonda gye yeerayirira okugiwa bajjajjammwe: Ibulayimu, ne Isaaka, ne Yakobo; okugibawa bo n’ezzadde lyabwe eririddawo.’ 

Okulonda Abakulembeze

91:9 Kuv 18:18“Mu biro ebyo nabagamba nti, ‘Sisobola kubalabirira nzekka bw’omu. 101:10 a Lub 15:5 b Ma 10:22; 28:62Mukama Katonda wammwe abongedde nnyo obungi, ne muwera nnyo; era, laba, kaakano muli ng’emmunyeenye ez’oku ggulu mu bungi bwammwe. 111:11 Lub 22:17; Kuv 32:13Nsaba Mukama Katonda wa bajjajjammwe abongereko obungi emirundi lukumi okusinga nga bwe muli leero, era abawenga omukisa nga bwe yabasuubiza. 12Kale, nze obw’omu nzekka nnaasobola ntya okwetikka omugugu gwammwe ogwo oguzitowa bwe gutyo, n’okubamalirawo ennyombo zammwe? 131:13 Kuv 18:21Kale nno, mwerondemu, mu buli kika kyammwe, ab’amagezi, abategeevu era abalina obumanyirivu nga bassibwamu ekitiibwa, nange nnaabakuza ne mbafuula abakulembeze bammwe.’ 14Nammwe mwanziramu nti, ‘Ekintu ky’otuteeserezza ffe okukola kirungi tukisiima.’

151:15 Kuv 18:25“Bwe ntyo ne nzirira abakulu b’ebika byammwe, nga basajja ba magezi, abalina obumanyirivu, era abassibwamu ekitiibwa, ne mbalonda okubeeranga abakulembeze bammwe; okubanga abafuzi b’enkumi, n’abalala ab’ebikumi, n’abalala ab’amakumi ataano, n’abalala ab’ekkumi, mu bika byammwe byonna. 161:16 a Ma 16:18; Yk 7:24 b Lv 24:22Mu biro ebyo ne nkuutira abaabalamulanga nti, ‘Muwulirizenga ensonga ezinaabaleeterwanga abooluganda, era musalengawo mu bwenkanya wakati w’owooluganda ne munne, era ne wakati we ne munnaggwanga gw’abeera naye. 171:17 a Lv 19:15; Ma 16:19; Nge 24:23; Yak 2:1 b 2By 19:6 c Kuv 18:26Musalenga emisango awatali kyekubiira; abagagga n’abaavu nga mubawuliriza kyenkanyi. Endabika y’omuntu tebatiisanga, kubanga Katonda y’asala emisango gyonna. Bwe wabangawo omusango gwonna omukakanyavu muguleetanga gye ndi, nze nnaaguwuliranga.’ 18Mu biro ebyo ne mbakuutira ebintu byonna bye musaanira okukolanga.”

Alipoota y’Abakessi

191:19 a Ma 8:15; Yer 2:2, 6 b nny 2; Kbl 13:26Awo ne tusitula okuva e Kolebu, ne tuyita mu ddungu eddene ery’entiisa mwenna lye mwalaba, ne tukwata ekkubo eryatutwala mu nsi ey’ensozi ey’Abamoli, nga Mukama Katonda waffe bwe yatulagira; ne tulyoka tutuuka e Kadesubanea. 20Ne mbagamba nti, “Mutuuse mu nsi ey’ensozi ey’Abamoli, Mukama Katonda waffe gy’atuwadde. 211:21 Yos 1:6, 9, 18Laba, Mukama Katonda wo akuwadde ensi. Kale, yambuka ogyetwalire nga Mukama Katonda wa bajjajjaabo bwe yakugamba. Totya, so toggwaamu maanyi.”

22Awo mwenna ne mujja gye ndi, ne muŋŋamba nti, “Kirungi tutume abantu basooke okutuukako eyo gye tulaga, bakebere ensi bagyetegereze nga bw’eri; balyoke bakomewo batutegeeze ekkubo lye tusaanira okukwata, n’ebibuga bye tunaggukako.”

231:23 Kbl 13:1-3Ekirowoozo ekyo kyandabikira nga kirungi, ne nkisiima; ne nnonda mu mmwe abasajja kkumi na babiri; nga mu buli kika muvaamu omusajja omu omu. 241:24 Kbl 13:21-25Baasitula ne bambuka mu nsi eyo ey’ensozi, ne batuuka mu kiwonvu Esukoli, ne bakiketta. 251:25 Kbl 13:27Ne banoga ku bibala eby’omu nsi omwo ne babituleetera; ne batutegeeza bwe bati nti, “Ensi Mukama Katonda waffe gy’atuwadde nnungi nnyo.

Okwemulugunya kwa Isirayiri

261:26 Kbl 14:1-4“Naye ate ne mutayambuka, ne mujeemera ekiragiro kya Mukama Katonda wammwe. 271:27 Ma 9:28; Zab 106:25Ne mwemulugunyiriza mu weema zammwe nga mugamba nti, ‘Olwokubanga Mukama tatwagala, yatukyawa, kyeyava atuggya mu nsi y’e Misiri alyoke atuweeyo mu mukono gw’Abamoli batuzikirize. 281:28 a Kbl 13:32 b Kbl 13:33; Ma 9:1-3Wa eyo gye tunaayambuka? Ebigambo bya baganda baffe abaagenda okuketta biyongobezza emitima gyaffe, bwe bagambye nti, Abantu abali eri banene, era bawanvu okutusinga ffe; ebibuga byayo binene nnyo, n’ebigo byabyo biwanvu bituukira ddala waggulu mu bire. Ate ne batabani ba Anaki1:28 Anaki baali batuuze b’omu Kanani, era baayitibwanga gasajja. nabo twabalabayo.’ ” 29Naye ne mbaddamu nti, “Temutekemuka mitima, so temubatya. 301:30 Kuv 14:14; Ma 3:22; Nek 4:20Mukama Katonda wammwe bulijjo abakulembera, ye yennyini agenda kubalwaniriranga, nga bwe yabalwanirira mu Misiri nga mulabira ddala n’amaaso gammwe. 311:31 Ma 32:10-12; Is 46:3-4; 63:9; Kos 11:3; Bik 13:18Era ne mu ddungu walabira ddala nga Mukama Katonda wo bwe yakusitula, nga kitaawe w’omwana bw’asitula mutabani we, n’akuyisa mu lugendo lwonna n’okukutuusa n’akutuusa mu kifo kino.”

321:32 Zab 106:24; Yud 5Newaakubadde ng’ebyo byonna byali bwe bityo, Mukama Katonda wammwe temwamwesiga, 331:33 a Kuv 13:21; Zab 78:14 b Kbl 10:33songa ye, yabakulemberanga mu lugendo lwammwe lwonna, n’empagi ey’omuliro ekiro, n’ekire mu budde obw’emisana, n’okubalaganga ekifo we munaasiisiranga.

341:34 Kbl 14:23, 28-30Mukama bwe yawulira ebigambo byammwe n’asunguwala nnyo, n’alayira nti, 351:35 Zab 95:11“Tewalibaawo n’omu ku bantu bano, ab’omulembe guno omubi, aliraba ku nsi eyo ennungi gye nalayirira okuwa bajjajjammwe, 361:36 Kbl 14:24; Yos 14:9okuggyako Kalebu mutabani wa Yefune. Ye agenda kugiraba, era ndimugabira, awamu n’ezzadde lye, ensi gye yalinnyako ekigere kye; kubanga yagondera Mukama n’omutima gwe gwonna.”

371:37 a Ma 3:26; 4:21 b Kbl 20:12Nange Mukama yansunguwalira ku lwammwe, n’aŋŋamba nti, “Naawe toliyingira mu nsi omwo. 381:38 a Kbl 14:30 b Ma 31:7 c Ma 3:28Wabula omuweereza wo Yoswa mutabani wa Nuuni ye aligiyingiramu. Mumuwagire, kubanga ye alikulembera abaana ba Isirayiri ne basikira ensi eyo. 391:39 a Kbl 14:3 b Is 7:15-16Abaana bammwe abato be mwatiisanga nti bagenda kuwambibwa batwalibwe mu busibe, abaana bammwe abo, abaali batannayawulamu kirungi na kibi, be baliyingira mu nsi eyo. Ndigibawa, ne bagyetwalira ne bagyefunira. 401:40 Kbl 14:25Naye mmwe, musitule mukyuke, mukwate olugendo olw’omu ddungu nga mwolekera Ennyanja Emyufu.”

Isirayiri Awangulwa mu Lutalo

41Ne mulyoka munziramu nti, “Twonoonye eri Mukama. Tujja kwambuka tulwane nga Mukama Katonda waffe bwe yatulagira.” Awo buli musajja ne yeesiba ebyokulwanyisa bye eby’olutalo, nga mulowooza nti kyangu okwambuka mu nsi ey’ensozi.

421:42 Kbl 14:41-43Mukama n’aŋŋamba nti, “Bategeeze nti, ‘Temwambuka kulwana, kubanga sijja kubeera nammwe. Abalabe bammwe bajja kubawangula.’ ”

43Bwe ntyo ne mbagamba, naye ne mutawuliriza, ne mujeemera ekiragiro kya Mukama, ne mujjula amalala ne mwambuka mu nsi ey’ensozi. 441:44 Zab 118:12Awo Abamoli abaabeeranga mu nsi eyo ey’ensozi, ne bavaayo ne babalumba, ne babagoba ng’enjuki bwe zikola, ne babakubira mu Seyiri n’okubatuusiza ddala e Koluma. 45Ne mukomawo, ne mukaabira mu maaso ga Mukama, naye Mukama n’atabawuliriza era ne bye mwamukaabirira n’atabibawa. 461:46 Kbl 20:1; Bal 11:17Bwe mutyo ne musigala e Kadesi, okumala ebbanga eryo lyonna lye mwabeera eyo.

King James Version

Deuteronomy 1:1-46

1These be the words which Moses spake unto all Israel on this side Jordan in the wilderness, in the plain over against the Red sea, between Paran, and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth, and Dizahab.1.1 the Red…: or, Zuph 2(There are eleven days’ journey from Horeb by the way of mount Seir unto Kadesh-barnea.) 3And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spake unto the children of Israel, according unto all that the LORD had given him in commandment unto them; 4After he had slain Sihon the king of the Amorites, which dwelt in Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, which dwelt at Astaroth in Edrei: 5On this side Jordan, in the land of Moab, began Moses to declare this law, saying, 6The LORD our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt long enough in this mount: 7Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the mount of the Amorites, and unto all the places nigh thereunto, in the plain, in the hills, and in the vale, and in the south, and by the sea side, to the land of the Canaanites, and unto Lebanon, unto the great river, the river Euphrates.1.7 all…: Heb. all his neighbours 8Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.1.8 set: Heb. given

9¶ And I spake unto you at that time, saying, I am not able to bear you myself alone: 10The LORD your God hath multiplied you, and, behold, ye are this day as the stars of heaven for multitude. 11(The LORD God of your fathers make you a thousand times so many more as ye are, and bless you, as he hath promised you!) 12How can I myself alone bear your cumbrance, and your burden, and your strife? 13Take you wise men, and understanding, and known among your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you.1.13 Take: Heb. Give 14And ye answered me, and said, The thing which thou hast spoken is good for us to do. 15So I took the chief of your tribes, wise men, and known, and made them heads over you, captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, and captains over fifties, and captains over tens, and officers among your tribes.1.15 made: Heb. gave 16And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him. 17Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.1.17 respect…: Heb. acknowledge faces 18And I commanded you at that time all the things which ye should do.

19¶ And when we departed from Horeb, we went through all that great and terrible wilderness, which ye saw by the way of the mountain of the Amorites, as the LORD our God commanded us; and we came to Kadesh-barnea. 20And I said unto you, Ye are come unto the mountain of the Amorites, which the LORD our God doth give unto us. 21Behold, the LORD thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged.

22¶ And ye came near unto me every one of you, and said, We will send men before us, and they shall search us out the land, and bring us word again by what way we must go up, and into what cities we shall come. 23And the saying pleased me well: and I took twelve men of you, one of a tribe: 24And they turned and went up into the mountain, and came unto the valley of Eshcol, and searched it out. 25And they took of the fruit of the land in their hands, and brought it down unto us, and brought us word again, and said, It is a good land which the LORD our God doth give us. 26Notwithstanding ye would not go up, but rebelled against the commandment of the LORD your God: 27And ye murmured in your tents, and said, Because the LORD hated us, he hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us. 28Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people is greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakims there.1.28 discouraged: Heb. melted 29Then I said unto you, Dread not, neither be afraid of them. 30The LORD your God which goeth before you, he shall fight for you, according to all that he did for you in Egypt before your eyes; 31And in the wilderness, where thou hast seen how that the LORD thy God bare thee, as a man doth bear his son, in all the way that ye went, until ye came into this place. 32Yet in this thing ye did not believe the LORD your God, 33Who went in the way before you, to search you out a place to pitch your tents in, in fire by night, to shew you by what way ye should go, and in a cloud by day. 34And the LORD heard the voice of your words, and was wroth, and sware, saying, 35Surely there shall not one of these men of this evil generation see that good land, which I sware to give unto your fathers, 36Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh; he shall see it, and to him will I give the land that he hath trodden upon, and to his children, because he hath wholly followed the LORD.1.36 wholly…: Heb. fulfilled to go after 37Also the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, saying, Thou also shalt not go in thither. 38But Joshua the son of Nun, which standeth before thee, he shall go in thither: encourage him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit it. 39Moreover your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, and your children, which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil, they shall go in thither, and unto them will I give it, and they shall possess it. 40But as for you, turn you, and take your journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea. 41Then ye answered and said unto me, We have sinned against the LORD, we will go up and fight, according to all that the LORD our God commanded us. And when ye had girded on every man his weapons of war, ye were ready to go up into the hill. 42And the LORD said unto me, Say unto them, Go not up, neither fight; for I am not among you; lest ye be smitten before your enemies. 43So I spake unto you; and ye would not hear, but rebelled against the commandment of the LORD, and went presumptuously up into the hill.1.43 went…: Heb. ye were presumptuous, and went up 44And the Amorites, which dwelt in that mountain, came out against you, and chased you, as bees do, and destroyed you in Seir, even unto Hormah. 45And ye returned and wept before the LORD; but the LORD would not hearken to your voice, nor give ear unto you. 46So ye abode in Kadesh many days, according unto the days that ye abode there.
