ማቴዎስ 19:1-30

ስለ መፋታት የቀረበ ጥያቄ

19፥1-9 ተጓ ምብ – ማር 10፥1-12

1ኢየሱስ ይህን ተናግሮ ከጨረሰ በኋላ፣ ገሊላን ትቶ ከዮርዳኖስ ማዶ ወዳለው ወደ ይሁዳ አውራጃ ሄደ። 2ብዙ ሕዝብም ተከተለው፤ በዚያም ፈወሳቸው።

3ፈሪሳውያንም ሊፈትኑት ቀርበው፣ “ለመሆኑ አንድ ሰው በማንኛውም ምክንያት ሚስቱን መፍታት ተፈቅዶአልን?” ሲሉ ጠየቁት።

4እርሱም መልሶ እንዲህ አላቸው፤ “ፈጣሪ በመጀመሪያ ወንድና ሴት አድርጎ እንደ ፈጠራቸው አላነበባችሁምን? 5እንዲህም አለ፤ ‘ሰው አባቱንና እናቱን ይተዋል፤ ከሚስቱም ጋር ይጣመራል፣ ሁለቱም አንድ ሥጋ ይሆናሉ’ የተባለው በዚህ ምክንያት አይደለምን? 6ከእንግዲህ አንድ ሥጋ ናቸው እንጂ ሁለት አይደሉም፤ ስለዚህ እግዚአብሔር ያጣመረውን ሰው አይለየው።”

7እነርሱም፣ “ታዲያ፣ ሙሴ አንድ ወንድ የፍቺውን የምስክር ወረቀት ሰጥቶ ሚስቱን እንዲያሰናብት ለምን አዘዘ?” አሉት።

8ኢየሱስም እንዲህ አላቸው፤ “ሙሴ የልባችሁን ጥንካሬ አይቶ ሚስቶቻችሁን እንድትፈቱ ፈቀደላችሁ እንጂ ከመጀመሪያው እንዲህ አልነበረም፤ 9እላችኋለሁ፤ በትዳሯ ላይ ዝሙት ፈጽማ እስካልተገኘች ድረስ ሚስቱን ፈትቶ ሌላ ሴት የሚያገባ ሁሉ አመንዝራ ይሆናል፤ እርሷንም አመንዝራ ያደርጋታል፣ የተፈታችውንም ሴት የሚያገባ ያመነዝራል።”

10ደቀ መዛሙርቱም፣ “የባልና የሚስት ጒዳይ እንዲህ ከሆነ አለማግባት ይሻላል” አሉት።

11ኢየሱስ ግን እንዲህ አላቸው፤ “ከተሰጣቸው በስተቀር ይህንን ትምህርት ማንም ሊቀበል አይችልም፤ 12ምክንያቱም አንዳንዶች ጃንደረባ ሆነው ይወለዳሉ፤ ሌሎች በሰው እጅ ተሰልበው ጃንደረባ ይሆናሉ፤ ደግሞም ለመንግሥተ ሰማይ ሲሉ ራሳቸውን ጃንደረባ የሚያደርጉ አሉ። ይህን መቀበል የሚችል ይቀበል።”

ኢየሱስ ሕፃናትን ባረካቸው

19፥13-15 ተጓ ምብ – ማር 10፥13-16፤ ሉቃ 18፥15-17

13ከዚያም እጆቹን በላያቸው ላይ ጭኖ እንዲጸልይላቸው ሕፃናትን ወደ እርሱ አቀረቧቸው። ደቀ መዛሙርቱ ግን ሕፃናቱን ያመጡትን ሰዎች ገሠጿቸው።

14ኢየሱስም፣ “ሕፃናት ወደ እኔ ይምጡ፤ አትከልክሏቸው፤ መንግሥተ ሰማይ እንደ እነርሱ ላሉት ናትና” አላቸው። 15እጁንም ከጫነባቸው በኋላ ከዚያ ስፍራ ተነሥቶ ሄደ።

የሀብታሙ ጥያቄ

19፥16-29 ተጓ ምብ – ማር 10፥17-30፤ ሉቃ 18፥18-30

16ከዚያም አንድ ሰው ወደ ኢየሱስ ቀርቦ፣ “መምህር ሆይ፤ የዘላለምን ሕይወት አገኝ ዘንድ ምን መልካም ነገር ልሥራ” ሲል ጠየቀው።

17ኢየሱስም፣ “ስለ መልካም ነገር ለምን ትጠይቀኛለህ? መልካም የሆነ አንዱ ብቻ ነው፤ ወደ ሕይወት ለመግባት ከፈለግህ ግን ትእዛዛቱን ጠብቅ” አለው።

18ሰውየውም፣ “የትኞቹን ትእዛዛት?” ሲል ጠየቀ።

ኢየሱስም እንዲህ አለው፤ “አትግደል፣ አታመንዝር፤ አትስረቅ፤ በሐሰት አትመስክር፤ 19አባትህንና እናትህን አክብር፤ ጎረቤትህን እንደ ራስህ ውደድ።”

20ጐልማሳውም ሰውየ፣ “እነዚህንማ ጠብቄአለሁ፤ ከዚህ ሌላ የሚጐድለኝ ምን አለ?” አለው።

21ኢየሱስም፣ “ፍጹም ለመሆን ከፈለግህ፣ ሄደህ ንብረትህን ሁሉ ሸጠህ፣ ገንዘቡን ለድኾች ስጥ፤ በሰማይም ሀብት ታገኛለህ። ከዚያም መጥተህ ተከተለኝ” አለው።

22ጐልማሳው ሰውየም ይህን ሲሰማ ብዙ ሀብት ስለ ነበረው እያዘነ ሄደ።

23ኢየሱስም ደቀ መዛሙርቱን እንዲህ አለ፤ “እውነት እላችኋለሁ፣ ለሀብታም ወደ መንግሥተ ሰማይ መግባት እጅግ አስቸጋሪ ነው። 24ደግሜ እላችኋለሁ፤ ሀብታም ወደ እግዚአብሔር መንግሥት ከሚገባ ግመል በመርፌ ቀዳዳ ቢሾልክ ይቀላል።”

25ይህን ሲሰሙ፣ ደቀ መዛሙርቱ እጅግ በመገረም፣ “እንግዲያስ ማን ሊድን ይችላል?” ሲሉ ጠየቁ።

26ኢየሱስም እየተመለከታቸው፣ “ይህ በሰው ዘንድ አይቻልም፤ በእግዚአብሔር ዘንድ ግን ሁሉም ነገር ይቻላል” አላቸው።

27ጴጥሮስም መልሶ፣ “እኛ ሁሉን ትተን ተከትለንሃል፤ ታዲያ ምን እናገኝ ይሆን?” አለው።

28ኢየሱስም እንዲህ አላቸው፤ “እውነት እላችኋለሁ፤ በሚመጣው አዲስ ዓለም የሰው ልጅ በክብሩ ዙፋን ላይ በሚቀመጥበት ጊዜ፣ እናንተም የተከተላችሁኝ በዐሥራ ሁለት ዙፋን ላይ ተቀምጣችሁ በዐሥራ ሁለቱ የእስራኤል ነገድ ላይ ትፈርዳላችሁ። 29ስለ ስሜ ብሎ ቤቶችን፣ ወንድሞችን፣ እኅቶችን፣ አባትን፣ እናትን19፥29 አንዳንድ ቅጆች እናትን ወይም ሚስትን ይላሉ ፣ ልጆችን ወይም ዕርሻን የሚተው ሁሉ መቶ ዕጥፍ ይቀበላል፤ የዘላለምንም ሕይወት ይወርሳል። 30ነገር ግን ብዙ ፊተኞች ኋለኞች፣ ብዙ ኋለኞችም ፊተኞች ይሆናሉ።”

King James Version

Matthew 19:1-30

1And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan; 2And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there.

3¶ The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? 4And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. 7They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? 8He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. 9And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

10¶ His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. 11But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. 12For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

13¶ Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. 14But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. 15And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.

16¶ And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? 17And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. 18He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, 19Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 20The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? 21Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. 22But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

23¶ Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. 24And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 25When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? 26But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

27¶ Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? 28And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. 30But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.
