2Lewubeeni, ne Simyoni, ne Leevi ne Yuda,

3ne Isakaali, ne Zebbulooni, ne Benyamini,

4ne Ddaani, ne Nafutaali, ne Gaadi, ne Aseri.

51:5 Lub 46:26Abaana bonna awamu Yakobo yennyini be yazaala baali bawera nsanvu1:5 ebiwandiiko ebimu bigamba nsanvu; kyokka ebiwandiiko ebyasangibwa mu Nnyanja ey’Omunnyo bigamba nsanvu mu bataano; Yusufu ye, yali yabeera dda mu Misiri.

61:6 Lub 50:26Awo Yusufu n’afa; ne baganda be ne bonna ab’omulembe ogwo ne bafa. 71:7 Lub 46:3; Ma 26:5; Bik 7:17Naye Abayisirayiri ne bazaala nnyo, ne baala, ne bayitirira obungi, era ne baba ba maanyi nnyo; ne bajjula ekitundu ekyo mwe baali.

8Awo ne waddawo kabaka omuggya mu Misiri ataamanya Yusufu. 91:9 Zab 105:24-25N’agamba abantu be nti, “Abayisirayiri batuyitiriddeko obungi era ba maanyi. 101:10 a Zab 83:3 b Bik 7:17-19Ka tubasalire amagezi baleme kweyongera bungi. Kubanga singa wagwawo olutalo ne beegatta n’abalabe baffe, ne batulwanyisa, balituddukako ne bava mu nsi eno.”

111:11 a Kuv 3:7 b Lub 15:13; Kuv 2:11; 5:4; 6:6-7 c Lub 47:11 d 1Bk 9:19; 2By 8:4Bwe batyo ne babateekako bannampala bababonyeebonye n’emirimu egy’obuwaze; ne bazimbira Falaawo ebibuga eby’amaterekero, Pisomu ne Lamusesi. 12Naye gye baakoma okutuntuzibwa, ate gye baakoma okweyongera obungi, ne basaasaana wonna. Abamisiri ne bakyawa abaana ba Isirayiri ate nga bwe babatya. 131:13 Ma 4:20Ne bongera okutuntuza abaana ba Isirayiri n’obukambwe. 141:14 Kuv 2:23; 6:9; Kbl 20:15; Zab 81:6; Bik 7:19Obulamu bw’Abayisirayiri ne bubakaayirira nga bakozesebwa ng’abaddu; nga batabula ebbumba okukola amatoffaali; n’emirimu egya buli ngeri egikolebwa mu nnimiro. Mu mirimu egyo gyonna baabakozesanga n’amaanyi era n’obukambwe.

191:19 Yos 2:4-6; 2Sa 17:20Abazaalisa, ne baddamu Falaawo nti, “Abakazi Abaebbulaniya tebali ng’abakazi Abamisiri; bo balamu bulungi era ba maanyi; abazaalisa we bagendera okubatuukako nga bamaze okuzaala.”

201:20 nny 12; Nge 11:18; Is 3:10Katonda, n’ayisanga bulungi abazaalisa n’abawa emikisa. Abaana ba Isirayiri ne beeyongera nnyo obungi era ne baba ba maanyi nnyo. 211:21 1Sa 2:35; 2Sa 7:11, 27-29; 1Bk 11:38Olwokubanga abazaalisa bassangamu Katonda ekitiibwa, nga bamutya, n’abawa ezzadde.

221:22 Bik 7:19Falaawo n’alyoka alagira abantu be bonna nti, “Buli mwana wabulenzi Abaebbulaniya gwe banaazaalanga mumusuulanga mu mugga Kiyira, naye owoobuwala mumulekanga.”

1Awa ndi mayina a ana a Israeli amene anapita ku Igupto pamodzi ndi Yakobo abambo awo, aliyense ndi banja lake: 2Rubeni, Simeoni, Levi, Yuda; 3Isakara, Zebuloni, Benjamini; 4Dani, Nafutali; Gadi ndi Aseri. 5Anthu onse obadwa mwa Yakobo analipo 70. Yosefe nʼkuti ali kale ku Igupto.

6Tsono Yosefe ndi abale ake onse ndiponso mʼbado wawo wonse anamwalira. 7Koma Aisraeli anaberekana ndi kuchuluka kwambiri nakhala amphamvu kwambiri, kotero kuti anadzaza dzikolo.

8Pambuyo pake mfumu yatsopano imene sinkamudziwa Yosefe, inayamba kulamulira dziko la Igupto. 9Iyo inati kwa anthu ake, “Taonani, Aisraeli achuluka ndipo ndi amphamvu kwambiri kuposa ife. 10Tiyeni tiwachenjerere. Tikapanda kutero adzachuluka kuposa ife, ndipo ngati kutakhala nkhondo, adzadziphatika kwa adani athu nadzamenyana nafe, kenaka nʼkudzachoka mʼdziko muno.”

11Kotero anayika akapitawo kuti aziwazunza ndi kuwagwiritsa ntchito yolemetsa mokakamiza. Iwo anamangira Farao mizinda ya Pitomu ndi Ramesesi kumene ankasungirako chakudya. 12Koma pamene ankawazunza kwambiri, Aisraeli ndiye ankachulukirachulukira mpaka kubalalikira mʼdziko lonse. Kotero Aigupto anayamba kuopa Aisraeliwo 13ndipo anawagwiritsa ntchito mwankhanza kwambiri. 14Aigupto anachititsa moyo wa Aisraeli kukhala owawa kwambiri powagwiritsa ntchito yakalavulagaga yowumba njerwa ndi kuponda dothi lomangira, pamodzi ndi ntchito zina zosiyanasiyana zamʼminda. Iwo anakakamiza Aisraeli mwankhanza kuti agwire ntchito yowawayi.

Azamba Akana Kumvera Mfumu

15Mfumu ya Igupto inati kwa azamba a Chihebri omwe mayina awo anali Sifira ndi Puwa, 16“Mukamathandiza amayi a Chihebri pa mwala wochirira, muzionetsetsa kuti akabadwa mwana wamwamuna muzipha, koma akakhala wamkazi muzimuleka akhale ndi moyo.” 17Koma azambawo ankaopa Mulungu ndipo sanachite zimene mfumu ya Igupto inawawuza kuti achite. Iwo analeka ana aamuna kuti akhale ndi moyo. 18Kenaka mfumu ya Igupto inayitanitsa azamba aja ndi kuwafunsa kuti, “Chifukwa chiyani mwachita zimenezi? Bwanji mwasiya ana aamuna kuti akhale ndi moyo?”

19Azambawo anamuyankha Farao kuti, “Amayi a Chihebri sali ngati amayi a Chiigupto; Iwo ndi amphamvu ndipo amachira azamba asanafike.”

20Kotero Mulungu anawakomera mtima azambawo, ndipo Aisraeli anapitirirabe kuchulukana nakhala amphamvu kwambiri. 21Pakuti azambawo ankaopa Mulungu, Iye anawapatsa mabanja awoawo.

22Pamenepo Farao analamulira anthu ake onse kuti, “Mwana wamwamuna aliyense akabadwa, mukamuponye mu mtsinje wa Nailo, koma wamkazi mulekeni akhale ndi moyo.”
