ዘፍጥረት 11:1-32

የባቤል ግንብ

1በዚያን ጊዜ ሰዎች ሁሉ የሚናገሩትና የሚግባቡበት ቋንቋ አንድ ብቻ ነበር። 2ሰዎቹም ምሥራቁን11፥2 ወይም ከምሥራቅ፣ በምሥራቅ ይዘው ሲጓዙ፣ በሰናዖር11፥2 ባቢሎንን ያመላክታል አንድ ሜዳ አግኝተው በዚያ ሰፈሩ።

3እነርሱም እርስ በርሳቸው፣ “ኑ፤ ጡብ እንሥራ፤ እስኪበቃውም በእሳት እንተኵሰው” ተባባሉ። በድንጋይ ፈንታ ጡብ፣ ለማያያዣም ቅጥራን ተጠቀሙ። 4ከዚያም “ለስማችን መጠሪያ እንዲሆንና በምድር ላይ እንዳንበተን፣ ኑ፤ ከተማና ሰማይ የሚደርስ ግንብ ለራሳችን እንሥራ” አሉ።

5እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ግን ሰዎቹ ይሠሩ የነበሩትን ከተማና ግንብ ለማየት ወረደ። 6እግዚአብሔርም (ያህዌ) እንዲህ እንደ አንድ ሕዝብ አንድ ቋንቋ በመናገር ይህን ማድረግ ከጀመሩ፣ ከእንግዲህ ያቀዱትን ሁሉ ማከናወን አያዳግታቸውም። 7ኑ እንውረድ፤ እርስ በርሳቸውም እንዳይግባቡ ቋንቋቸውን እንደበላልቀው።”

8ስለዚህ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) በምድር ሁሉ ላይ በታተናቸው፤ ከተማዋንም መሥራት አቆሙ። 9እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) በዚያ የመላውን ዓለም ቋንቋ ስለ ደበላለቀ የከተማዪቱ ስም ባቤል11፥9 ባቢሎንን ያመላክታል። ባቤል የሚለው ቃል ድንግርታ የሚል ትርጒም ካለው የዕብራይስጥ ቃል ጋር አንድ ዐይነት ድምፅ አለው። ተባለ። ከዚያም እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ሰዎቹን በምድር ሁሉ በተናቸው።

Genesis 11:1-32

The Tower of Babel

1The whole world had only one language, and everyone spoke it. 2They moved to the east and found a broad valley in Babylon. There they made their home.

3They said to one another, “Come on! Let’s make bricks and bake them well.” They used bricks instead of stones. They used tar to hold the bricks together. 4Then they said, “Come on! Let’s build a city for ourselves. Let’s build a tower that reaches to the sky. We’ll make a name for ourselves. Then we won’t be scattered over the whole earth.”

5But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6He said, “All these people are united and speak the same language. That is why they can do all this. Now they will be able to do anything they plan. 7Come on! Let us go down and mix up their language. Then they will not be able to understand one another.”

8So the Lord scattered them from there over the whole earth. And they stopped building the city. 9There the Lord mixed up the language of the whole world. That’s why the city was called Babel. From there the Lord scattered them over the whole earth.

26After Terah was 70 years old, he became the father of Abram, Nahor and Haran.

The Family Line of Abram

27Here is the story of Terah’s family line.

Terah became the father of Abram, Nahor and Haran. And Haran became the father of Lot. 28Haran died in the city of Ur in Babylonia, the land where he was born. Haran died while his father Terah was still alive. 29Abram and Nahor both got married. The name of Abram’s wife was Sarai. The name of Nahor’s wife was Milkah, the daughter of Haran. Haran was the father of Milkah and Iscah. 30But Sarai wasn’t able to have children.

31Terah left Ur in Babylon. He took with him his son Abram and his grandson Lot, the son of Haran. Terah also took his daughter-in-law Sarai, the wife of his son Abram. All of them left together to go to Canaan. But when they came to Harran, they made their home there.

32Terah lived for 205 years. And then he died in Harran.
