ዘፀአት 9:1-35

የእንስሳት እልቂት

1ከዚያም እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ሙሴን እንዲህ አለው፤ “ወደ ፈርዖን ሂድና እንዲህ በለው፤ ‘የዕብራውያን አምላክ (ኤሎሂም) እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) የሚለው ይህ ነው፤ “ያመልኩኝ ዘንድ ሕዝቤን ልቀቅ።” 2አሁንም እንዳይሄዱ ብታደርግና ብትከለክላቸው፣ 3የእግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) እጅ በመስክ ላይ ባሉት እንስሳት፣ በፈረሶችህና በአህዮችህ፣ በግመሎችህና በቀንድ ከብቶችህ፣ በበጎችህና በፍየሎችህ ላይ አስከፊ መቅሠፍት ያመጣብሃል። 4ነገር ግን እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) በእስራኤልና በግብፅ እንስሳት መካከል ልዩነት ያደርጋል፤ ይኸውም የእስራኤል የሆነ ማንኛውም እንስሳ እንዳይሞት ነው።’ ”

5እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ጊዜን ወስኖ፣ እንዲህ አለ፤ “በነገው ዕለት እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) በምድሪቱ ላይ ይህን ያደርጋል።” 6በማግሥቱም እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ነገሩን ፈጸመው፤ የግብፃውያን እንስሳት በሙሉ አለቁ፤ ነገር ግን የእስራኤላውያን ከሆኑት እንስሳት አንድም አልሞተም። 7ፈርዖን ያጣሩ ዘንድ ሰዎች ልኮ ከእስራኤላውያኑ እንስሳት አንድም እንኳን አለመሞቱን ተገነዘበ። ያም ሆኖ ልቡ እንደ ደነደነ ስለ ነበር፣ ሕዝቡን አልለቀቀም።

የእባጭ መቅሠፍት

8ከዚያም እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ሙሴንና አሮንን አላቸው፤ “ከምድጃው እፍኝ ዐመድ ወስዳችሁ፣ ሙሴ በፈርዖን ፊት ወደ ሰማይ ይበትነው። 9በግብፅ ምድር ሁሉ ትቢያ ይሆናል፤ በምድሪቱ ሁሉ በሚገኙት ሰዎችና እንስሳት ላይ መግል የያዘ እባጭ ይወጣል።”

10ስለዚህ ከምድጃው ዐመድ ወስደው በፈርዖን ፊት ቆሙ፤ ሙሴም ወደ ሰማይ በተነው፤ መግል የያዘ እባጭም በሰዎችና በእንስሳት ላይ ወጣ። 11በእነርሱና በግብፃውያን ሁሉ ላይ እባጭ ወጥቶ ስለ ነበር፣ አስማተኞቹ በሙሴ ፊት መቆም አልቻሉም። 12እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ግን የፈርዖንን ልብ አደነደነ፤ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ለሙሴ እንደ ተናገረውም፣ ሙሴንና አሮንን መስማት አልፈለገም።

የበረዶ መቅሠፍት

13ከዚያም እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ሙሴን እንዲህ አለው፤ “ማልደህ በጧት ተነሣ፤ ከፈርዖን ፊት ቀርበህ እንዲህ በለው፤ የዕብራውያን አምላክ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ ኤሎሂም) የሚለው ይህ ነው፤ ያመልኩኝ ዘንድ ሕዝቤን ልቀቅ፤ 14አለዚያ በአንተ በሹማምቶችህና በሕዝብህ ላይ የመቅሠፍቴን መዓት ሁሉ አሁን አወርድብሃለሁ፤ ይኸውም በምድር ሁሉ እንደ እኔ ያለ ማንም እንደሌለ ታውቅ ዘንድ ነው። 15አሁን እጄን ዘርግቼ አንተንና ሕዝብህን ከገጸ ምድር ሊያጠፋችሁ በሚችል መቅሠፍት በመታኋችሁ ነበር። 16ነገር ግን ኀይሌን እንዳሳይህና ስሜም በምድር ዙሪያ ሁሉ እንዲታወቅ ለዚህ አስነሥቼሃለሁ።9፥16 ወይም፣ ለዚህ ምሕረቴን አሳይቼሃለሁ 17እስካሁንም በሕዝቤ ላይ እንደ ተነሣህ ነው፤ ይሄዱም ዘንድ አትለቃቸውም። 18ስለዚህ ነገ በዚህ ጊዜ ከተመሠረተችበት ጊዜ ጀምሮ እስካሁን ድረስ በግብፅ ላይ ወርዶ የማያውቅ አስከፊ የበረዶ ማዕበል እልካለሁ። 19ከብቶችህና በመስክ ላይ ያለህ ማንኛውም ነገር ወደ መጠለያ ይገቡ ዘንድ አሁን ትእዛዝ ስጥ፤ ምክንያቱም በረዶው ወደ መጠለያ ባልገቡትና በመስክ ላይ በቀሩት በማንኛውም ሰውና እንስሳት ላይ ወርዶባቸው ስለሚሞቱ ነው።

20የእግዚአብሔርን (ያህዌ) ቃል የፈሩት የፈርዖን ሹማምቶች፣ ባሮቻቸውንና ከብቶቻቸውን ለማስገባት ተጣደፉ። 21የእግዚአብሔርን (ያህዌ) ቃል ችላ ያሉት ግን ባሮቻቸውንና ከብቶቻቸውን በመስክ ላይ እንደ ነበሩ ተዉአቸው።

22ከዚያም እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ሙሴን፣ “በመላይቱ የግብፅ ምድር ባሉት ሰዎች፣ በእንስሳት እንዲሁም በምድሪቱ ላይ በሚበቅሉት ነገሮች ሁሉ ላይ በረዶ እንዲወርድ እጅህን ወደ ሰማይ አንሣ” አለው። 23ሙሴ በትሩን ወደ ሰማይ ባነሣ ጊዜ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ነጐድጓድና በረዶ አወረደ፤ መብረቅም በምድሪቱ ላይ ሆነ። እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) በግብፅ ምድር በረዶ አዘነበ፤ 24በረዶ ወረደ፤ መብረቅም አብረቀረቀ፤ ግብፅ ሐገር ከሆነችበት ዘመን አንሥቶ በምድሪቱ ሁሉ እንደዚህ ያለ አስከፊ ማዕበል ሆኖ አያውቅም። 25በመላው ግብፅ በረዶ በመስክ ላይ ያለውን ሁሉ፣ ሰዎችንና እንስሳትንም መታ፤ በመስክ ላይ የበቀለውን ሁሉ አጠፋ፤ ዛፉን ሁሉ ባዶ አስቀረ። 26በረዶ ያልወረደበት ቢኖር እስራኤላውያን የሚኖሩበት የጌሤም ምድር ብቻ ነበር።

27ከዚያም ፈርዖን ሙሴንና አሮንን አስጠራ፤ እንዲህም አላቸው፤ ‘አሁንስ በድያለሁ፤ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ትክክል ነው፤ እኔና ሕዝቤ ግን ስተናል። 28መብረቅና በረዶ በዝቶብናልና ወደ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ጸልዩልን፤ እንድትሄዱ እለቃችኋለሁ፤ ከዚህ በኋላ በዚህ የመኖር ግዴታ የለባችሁም።

29ሙሴም መልሶ፣ “ከከተማዋ በወጣሁ ጊዜ፣ እጆቼን ለጸሎት ወደ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) እዘረጋለሁ፤ አንተም ምድር የእግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) እንደሆነች ታውቅ ዘንድ መብረቁ ያቆማል፤ ከእንግዲህ በኋላ በረዶ አይኖርም። 30ሆኖም አንተና ሹማምትህ አሁንም ቢሆን እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) አምላክን እንደማትፈሩ ዐውቃለሁ።

31ተልባው አብቦ፣ ገብሱም ፍሬ ይዞ ስለ ነበር፣ ተልባውና ገብሱ ከጥቅም ውጭ ሆኑ። 32ስንዴውና አጃው ግን በዚያ ወቅት ባለማፍራቱ አልጠፋም ነበር።

33ከዚያም ሙሴ ከፈርዖን ተለይቶ ከከተማው ወጣ። እጁን ወደ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ዘረጋ፤ ነጎድጓዱና በረዶው ቆመ፤ ዝናቡም በምድሪቱ ላይ መዝነቡን አቆመ። 34ፈርዖንም ዝናቡ፣ በረዶውና ነጎድጓዱ መቆሙን ባየ ጊዜ እንደ ገና በደለ፤ እርሱና ሹማምቶቹ ልባቸውን አደነደኑ። 35ስለዚህ የፈርዖን ልብ ደነደነ፤ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ለሙሴ እንደ ተናገረውም እስራኤላውያን ይሄዱ ዘንድ አልለቀቃቸውም።

King James Version

Exodus 9:1-35

1Then the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me. 2For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still, 3Behold, the hand of the LORD is upon thy cattle which is in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain. 4And the LORD shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children’s of Israel. 5And the LORD appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the LORD shall do this thing in the land. 6And the LORD did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one. 7And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the cattle of the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people go.

8¶ And the LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh. 9And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt. 10And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast. 11And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians. 12And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had spoken unto Moses.

13¶ And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me. 14For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth. 15For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee and thy people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from the earth. 16And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.9.16 raised…: Heb. made thee stand 17As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou wilt not let them go? 18Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now. 19Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that thou hast in the field; for upon every man and beast which shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die. 20He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses: 21And he that regarded not the word of the LORD left his servants and his cattle in the field.9.21 regarded…: Heb. set not his heart unto

22¶ And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt. 23And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt. 24So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation. 25And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field. 26Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.

27¶ And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked. 28Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer.9.28 mighty…: Heb. voices of God 29And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the LORD; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the LORD’s. 30But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the LORD God. 31And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled. 32But the wheat and the rie were not smitten: for they were not grown up.9.32 not grown…: Heb. hidden or, dark 33And Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread abroad his hands unto the LORD: and the thunders and hail ceased, and the rain was not poured upon the earth. 34And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants. 35And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the children of Israel go; as the LORD had spoken by Moses.9.35 by Moses: Heb. by the hand of Moses
