1Bwe bityo eggulu n’ensi awamu ne byonna ebigirimu ne biggwa okukolwa.
22:2 Kuv 20:11; 31:17; Beb 4:4*Ku lunaku olw’omusanvu Katonda yali amaze ebyo byonna bye yali akola; n’awummulira ku lunaku olwo ng’ava ku mirimu gye gyonna gye yakola. 32:3 Lv 23:3; Is 58:13Bw’atyo Katonda olunaku olw’omusanvu n’aluwa omukisa n’alutukuza; kubanga ku olwo Katonda kwe yawummulira emirimu gye yakola mu kutonda.
Adamu ne Kaawa
4Ebyo bye bifa ku ggulu n’ensi nga bwe byatondebwa, Mukama Katonda we yamalira okutonda eggulu n’ensi.
52:5 a Lub 1:11 b Zab 65:9-10Tewaaliwo muddo gwonna ku nsi wadde ekimera kyonna, kubanga Mukama Katonda yali tannatonnyesa nkuba ku nsi era nga tewali muntu ow’okulima ettaka. 6Naye ensulo n’eva mu ttaka n’efukirira ensi yonna. 72:7 a Lub 3:19 b Zab 103:14 c Yob 33:4 d Bik 17:25 e 1Ko 15:45*Mukama Katonda n’akola omuntu okuva mu nfuufu ey’oku nsi n’amufuuwa mu nnyindo omukka ogw’obulamu. Omuntu n’aba omulamu. 82:8 Lub 3:23, 24; Is 51:3Mukama Katonda yali asimbye ennimiro Adeni ku luuyi olw’ebuvanjuba, omuntu gwe yabumba n’amuteeka omwo. 92:9 a Lub 3:22, 24; Kub 2:7; 22:2, 14, 19 b Ez 47:12Mukama Katonda n’ameza mu ttaka buli muti ogusanyusa amaaso era omulungi okulya. N’ateeka omuti ogw’obulamu, n’omuti ogw’okumanya ekirungi n’ekibi wakati mu nnimiro.
10Omugga ne gusibuka mu nnimiro Adeni ne gukulukuta okulufukirira, ne gwanjaalira omwo ne guvaamu emigga ena. 11Erinnya ly’ogusooka Pisoni, gwe gwo ogukulukuta okwetooloola ensi ya Kavira, awali zaabu; 12ne zaabu y’ensi eyo nnungi; mulimu bideriamu n’amayinja onuku. 13Omugga ogwokubiri ye Gikoni, gwe gukulukuta okwetooloola ensi ya Kuusi.2:13 Kuusi, mu Ndagaano Enkadde, ly’erinnya ly’ekifo mu Lwebbulaniya eky’e Sudaani oba Buwesiyopya. Omugga ye Kiyira. 142:14 Dan 10:4N’erinnya ly’ogwokusatu ye Tigiriisi ogukulukutira ku buvanjuba bwa Bwasuli. Ogwokuna ye Fulaati.
15Mukama Katonda n’ateeka omuntu mu nnimiro Adeni agirimenga era agikuumenga. 16Mukama Katonda n’alagira omuntu nti, “Emiti gyonna egy’omu nnimiro olyangako, 172:17 Ma 30:15, 19; Bar 5:12; 6:23; Yak 1:15naye omuti ogw’okumanya ekirungi n’ekibi ogwo togulyangako, kubanga lw’oligulyako tolirema kufa.”
182:18 1Ko 11:9Mukama Katonda n’ayogera nti, “Si kirungi omuntu okuba yekka, nnaamukolera omubeezi amusaanira.” 192:19 a Zab 8:7 b Lub 1:24Naye olwo Mukama Katonda yali amaze okukola ensolo zonna ez’omu nsiko n’ebinyonyi eby’omu bbanga. N’abireeta eri omuntu abituume amannya. Buli kiramu omuntu nga bwe yakiyita, lye lyabeera erinnya lyakyo. 20Bw’atyo omuntu n’atuuma buli nsolo ey’awaka, n’ebinyonyi eby’omu bbanga n’ensolo ez’omu nsiko amannya.
Adamu yali tannaba kufunirwa mubeezi. 21Mukama Katonda n’aleetera omusajja otulo tungi nnyo ne yeebaka; bwe yali nga yeebase n’amuggyamu olubirizi lumu, n’azzaawo ennyama. 222:22 1Ko 11:8, 9, 12Mukama Katonda n’atonda omukazi okuva mu lubiriizi lwe yaggya mu musajja n’amumuleetera.
232:23 Lub 29:14; Bef 5:28-30Omusajja n’agamba nti,
“Lino lye ggumba ery’omu magumba gange,
ye nnyama ey’omu nnyama yange,
kubanga aggyibbwa mu musajja.”
242:24 a Mal 2:15 b Mat 19:5*; Mak 10:7-8*; 1Ko 6:16*; Bef 5:31*Noolwekyo omusajja ky’anaavanga aleka kitaawe ne nnyina ne yeegatta ne mukazi we, ne bafuuka omubiri gumu.
252:25 Lub 3:7, 10-11Omusajja n’omukazi baali tebambadde, naye nga tewali akwatirwa munne nsonyi.
1Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.2.3 created…: Heb. created to make
4¶ These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, 5And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. 6But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.2.6 there…: or, a mist which went up from, etc. 7And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.2.7 of the dust…: Heb. dust of the ground
8¶ And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. 9And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. 10And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. 11The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; 12And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone. 13And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.2.13 Ethiopia: Heb. Cush 14And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.2.14 toward…: or, eastward to Assyria 15And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.2.15 the man: or, Adam
16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:2.16 thou…: Heb. eating thou shalt eat 17But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.2.17 thou shalt surely…: Heb. dying thou shalt die
18¶ And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.2.18 meet…: Heb. as before him 19And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.2.19 Adam: or, the man 20And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.2.20 gave: Heb. called
21And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.2.22 made: Heb. builded 23And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.2.23 Woman: Heb. Isha2.23 Man: Heb. Ish 24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. 25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
