Olubereberye 19:1-38

Sodomu ne Ggomola

119:1 a Lub 18:22 b Lub 18:1Bamalayika ababiri ne batuuka mu Sodomu akawungeezi; Lutti yali atudde mu mulyango gwa Sodomu. Lutti bwe yabalaba n’agolokoka okubasisinkana, n’avuunama, 219:2 Lub 18:4; Luk 7:44n’agamba nti, “Bakama bange mukyame mu nnyumba y’omuddu wammwe munaabe ku bigere, mbegayiridde n’okusula musule. Munaazuukuka mangu ku makya ne mukwata ekkubo lyammwe.”

Ne bagamba nti, “Nedda tunaasula mu luguudo.”

319:3 Lub 18:6Naye n’abawaliriza nnyo; awo ne bakyama ne bajja gy’ali ne bayingira mu nnyumba ye, n’abategekera ekijjulo n’emigaati egitali mizimbulukuse ne balya. 4Naye nga tebannaba kugenda kwebaka, abasajja ab’omu kibuga, abasajja ba Sodomu, abakulu n’abato, abantu bonna ne beetooloola ennyumba; 519:5 Bal 19:22; Is 3:9; Bar 1:24-27ne bayita Lutti nga bagamba nti, “Abasajja abazze gy’oli ekiro kino bali ludda wa? Batufulumize twebake nabo.”

619:6 Bal 19:23Lutti n’afuluma gye bali, n’aggalawo oluggi, 7n’abagamba nti, “Baganda bange mbasaba temukola kibi kifaanana bwe kityo. 819:8 Bal 19:24Laba, nnina bawala bange embeerera babiri, ka mbabafulumize, mubakole kye mwagala; naye temubaako kye mukola basajja bano, bagenyi bange era nze mbalabirira.” 919:9 Kuv 2:14; Bik 7:27Naye ne bamugamba nti, “Tuviire! Omusajja omugwira ono, ate kati y’atulagira eky’okukola! Nedda, tujja kukukolako n’okusinga abagenyi bo.” Awo ne banyigiriza nnyo Lutti, era kaabula kata bamenye n’oluggi.

10Naye abasajja ababiri abaali mu nnyumba ne bagolola emikono gyabwe ne bakwata Lutti ne bamuyingiza mu nnyumba ne baggalawo oluggi. 1119:11 Ma 28:28-29; 2Bk 6:18; Bik 13:11Ne baziba amaaso g’abasajja abaali ebweru ku luggi lw’ennyumba, abato n’abakulu, ne bakoowa nga bawammanta oluggi.

1219:12 Lub 7:1Awo abasajja bali ababiri ne babuuza Lutti nti, “Olina abantu bo abalala wano, batabani bo, oba bakoddomi bo, oba bawala bo, oba omuntu omulala yenna mu kibuga? Bafulumye mu kifo kino; 1319:13 1By 21:15kubanga tuli kumpi okukizikiriza. Kubanga okukaaba olw’abantu baamu eri Mukama kuyitiridde, era Mukama atutumye okukizikiriza.”

1419:14 a Kbl 16:21 b Kuv 9:21; Luk 17:28Awo Lutti n’afuluma n’ategeeza bakoddomi be abaali ab’okuwasa bawala be ng’agamba nti, “Musituke, muve mu kifo kino, kubanga Mukama ali kumpi kukizikiriza.” Naye yafaanana ng’abalaata eri bakoddomi be. Lutti n’ab’ennyumba ye ne badduka.

1519:15 a Kbl 16:26 b Kub 18:4Naye obudde bwe bwali bunaatera okukya, bamalayika ne balagira Lutti nga bagamba nti, “Golokoka, otwale mukazi wo ne bawala bo ababiri abali wano muleme okuzikirira ng’ekibuga kibonerezebwa.”

16Naye bwe yali akyekunya, abasajja ne bamukwata omukono, n’emikono gya mukazi we, n’emikono gy’abawala be bombi, Mukama ng’abakwatirwa ekisa, ne babafulumya ne babateeka ebweru w’ekibuga. 1719:17 a Yer 48:6 b nny 26Bwe baabafulumya ne babagamba nti, “Mudduke muwonye obulamu bwammwe, temutunula mabega wadde okuyimirira mu kiwonvu; muddukire ku nsozi, muleme okuzikirizibwa.”

18Awo Lutti n’abagamba nti, “Nedda bakama bange; 19Laba, omuddu wammwe alabye ekisa mu maaso gammwe, era mundaze ekisa kingi nga muwonya obulamu bwange; naye siyinza kuddukira ku nsozi akabi tekalwa kunzingiza ne nfa. 20Laba, ekibuga kiri ekitono ekiri okumpi, kirungi okuddukira omwo. Leka nzirukire eyo. Era n’obulamu bwange bujja kuwona!” 21N’amuddamu nti, “Laba, era nnyongedde okukukwatirwa ekisa, sijja kumalawo kibuga ky’oyogeddeko. 22Yanguwa tolwa, ddukira eyo; kubanga siriiko kye nnaakola nga tonnatuuka eyo.” Erinnya ly’ekibuga kyeryava liba Zowaali.

23Lutti we yatuukira mu Zowaali enjuba yali evuddeyo, Sodomu ne Ggomola ne bizikirizibwa. 2419:24 a Ma 29:23; Is 1:9; 13:19 b Luk 17:29; 2Pe 2:6; Yud 7Awo Mukama n’atonnyesa ku Sodomu ne Ggomola omuliro n’obuganga okuva mu ggulu; 2519:25 Zab 107:34; Ez 16:48n’azikiriza ebibuga ebyo, n’ekiwonvu kyonna n’abantu bonna abaali mu bibuga, ne buli kintu ekyalimu. 2619:26 a nny 17 b Luk 17:32Naye mukazi wa Lutti bwe yatunula emabega, n’afuuka empagi ey’omunnyo. 2719:27 Lub 18:22Awo ku makya ennyo Ibulayimu n’agenda mu kifo mwe yayimiririra mu maaso ga Mukama; 2819:28 Kub 9:2; 18:9n’atunula wansi okwolekera Sodomu ne Ggomola n’okwolekera ekitundu kyonna eky’olusenyi, n’alaba, era laba, ekitundu kyonna nga kijjudde omukka.

2919:29 2Pe 2:7Bwe kityo bwe kyali Katonda bwe yazikiriza ebibuga eby’omu kiwonvu. Katonda n’ajjukira Ibulayimu n’afulumya Lutti ebweru n’amuggya wakati mu kuzikirizibwa, bwe yazikiriza ebibuga Lutti mwe yabeeranga.

Ekibi kya Bawala ba Lutti

3019:30 nny 19Awo Lutti n’ava mu Zowaali, n’abeera mu nsozi wamu ne bawala be, kubanga yatya okubeera mu Zowaali. Ye ne bawala be ne babeera mu mpuku. 31Olunaku lumu omuwala omukulu n’agamba muto we nti, “Kitaffe akaddiye era tewali na musajja ku nsi ajja kutwagala ng’empisa y’ensi bw’eri. 32Jjangu tunywese kitaffe omwenge, tulyoke twebake naye, tusobole okufuna ezzadde nga liva mu kitaffe.”

33Ne batamiiza kitaabwe ekiro ekyo, omukulu n’agenda ne yeebaka ne kitaawe, Lutti n’atamanya bwe yeebaka yadde bwe yagolokoka.

34Ku lunaku olwaddirira, omuwala omukulu n’agamba omuto nti, “Laba, ekiro neebase ne kitange; Leka tumunywese omwenge ekiro kino, oyingire gy’ali weebake naye, tulyoke tusobole okukuuma ezzadde mu kitaffe.” 35Awo ne batamiiza kitaabwe ekiro ekyo, omuwala omuto n’asituka ne yeebaka naye, Lutti n’atamanya bwe yeebase ne bw’agolokose.

36Bwe batyo bawala ba Lutti bombi buli omu n’aba olubuto nga lwa kitaabwe. 3719:37 Ma 2:9Omuwala omukulu n’azaala omwana wabulenzi n’amutuuma Mowaabu, ye jjajja w’Abamowaabu abaliwo kaakano. 3819:38 Ma 2:19Omuto naye n’azaala omwana mulenzi n’amutuuma Benami, ye yavaamu Abamoni abaliwo ne kaakano.

Genesis 19:1-38

The Lord Destroys Sodom and Gomorrah

1The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening. Lot was sitting near the gate of the city. When Lot saw the angels, he got up to greet them. He bowed down with his face to the ground. 2“My lords,” he said, “please come to my house. You can wash your feet and spend the night there. Then you can go on your way early in the morning.”

“No,” they answered. “We’ll spend the night in the town square.”

3But Lot wouldn’t give up. So they went with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them. He baked bread without using yeast. And they ate. 4Before Lot and his guests had gone to bed, all the men came from every part of the city of Sodom. Young and old men alike surrounded the house. 5They called out to Lot. They said, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us. We want to have sex with them.”

6Lot went outside to meet them. He shut the door behind him. 7He said, “No, my friends. Don’t do such an evil thing. 8Look, I have two daughters that no man has ever slept with. I’ll bring them out to you now. Then do to them what you want to. But don’t do anything to these men. I’ve brought them inside so they can be safe.”

9“Get out of our way!” the men of Sodom replied to Lot. “You came here as an outsider. Now you want to act like a judge! We’ll treat you worse than them.” They kept trying to force Lot to open the door. Then they moved forward to break it down.

10But the angels inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door. 11Then they made the men who were at the door of the house blind. They blinded both young and old men so that they couldn’t find the door.

12The two angels said to Lot, “Do you have any other family members here? Do you have sons-in-law, sons, daughters or any other relatives in the city? Get them out of here! 13We are going to destroy this place. Many have cried out to the Lord against the people of this city. So he has sent us to destroy it.”

14Then Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law. They had promised to marry his daughters. He said, “Hurry up! Get out of this place! The Lord is about to destroy the city!” But his sons-in-law thought he was joking.

15The sun was coming up. So the angels tried to get Lot to leave. They said, “Hurry up! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here. Get out! If you don’t, you will be swept away when the city is destroyed.”

16Lot didn’t move right away. So the men grabbed him by the hand. They also took hold of the hands of his wife and two daughters. They led all of them safely out of the city. The Lord had mercy on them. 17As soon as the angels had brought them out, one of them spoke. He said, “Run for your lives! Don’t look back! Don’t stop anywhere in the valley! Run to the mountains! If you don’t, you will be swept away!”

18But Lot said to them, “No, my lords! Please! 19You have done me a big favor. You have been very kind to me by sparing my life. But I can’t run to the mountains. I won’t be able to escape this horrible thing that’s going to happen. And then I’ll die. 20Look, here’s a town near enough to run to. It’s small. Let me run to it. It’s very small, isn’t it? Then my life will be spared.”

21The Lord said to Lot, “All right. I will also give you what you are asking for. I will not destroy the town you are talking about. 22But run there quickly. I can’t do anything until you reach it.” The town was named Zoar. Zoar means Small.

23By the time Lot reached Zoar, the sun had risen over the land. 24Then the Lord sent down burning sulfur. It came down like rain on Sodom and Gomorrah. It came from the Lord. It came out of the sky. 25The Lord destroyed these cities and the whole valley. All the people who were living in the cities were wiped out. So were the plants in the land. 26But Lot’s wife looked back. When she did, she became a pillar made out of salt.

27Early the next morning Abraham got up. He returned to the place where he had stood in front of the Lord. 28He looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah and the whole valley. He saw thick smoke rising from the land. It looked like smoke from a furnace.

29So when God destroyed the cities of the valley, he showed concern for Abraham. He brought Lot out safely when he destroyed the cities where Lot had lived.

Lot and His Daughters

30Lot and his two daughters left Zoar. They went to live in the mountains because Lot was afraid to stay in Zoar. So he and his daughters lived in a cave. 31One day the older daughter spoke to the younger one. She said, “Our father is old. People all over the earth have men to marry and have children with. We do not. 32So let’s get our father to drink wine. Then we can sleep with him. We can use our father to continue our family line.”

33That night they got their father to drink wine. Then the older daughter went in and slept with him. He wasn’t aware when she lay down or when she got up.

34The next day the older daughter spoke to the younger one again. She said, “Last night I slept with my father. Let’s get him to drink wine again tonight. Then you go in and sleep with him. We can use our father to continue our family line.” 35So they got their father to drink wine that night also. Then the younger daughter slept with him. Again he wasn’t aware when she lay down or when she got up.

36So both of Lot’s daughters became pregnant by their father. 37The older daughter had a son. She named him Moab. He’s the father of the Moabites of today. 38The younger daughter also had a son. She named him Ben-Ammi. He’s the father of the Ammonites of today.
