ዘፍጥረት 25:1-34

የአብርሃም መሞት

25፥1-4 ተጓ ምብ – 1ዜና 1፥32-33

1አብርሃም ኬጡራ የተባለች ሌላ ሚስት አገባ።25፥1 ወይም አግብቶ ነበር 2እርሷም፦ ዘምራንን፣ ዮቅሳንን፣ ሜዳንን፣ ምድያምን፣ የስቦቅንና ስዌሕን ወለደችለት። 3ዮቅሳንም ሳባንና ድዳንን ወለደ፤ የድዳንም ልጆች፦ አሦራውያን፣ ለጡሳውያንና ለኡማውያን ናቸው። 4የምድያም ልጆች፦ ጌፌር፣ ዔፌር፣ ሄኖኅ፣ አቢዳዕና ኤልዳድ ናቸው። እነዚህ ሁሉ የኬጡራ ልጆች ናቸው።

5አብርሃም ያለውን ሀብት ሁሉ ለይስሐቅ አወረሰው፤ 6ለቁባቶቹ ልጆች ግን በሕይወት እያለ ስጦታ አደረገላቸው፤ ከልጁ ከይስሐቅም ርቀው እንዲኖሩ ወደ ምሥራቅ ምድር ሰደዳቸው።

7አብርሃም በጠቅላላው መቶ ሰባ አምስት ዓመት ኖረ። 8ከዚያም ዐረፈ፤ ዕድሜ ጠግቦ በመልካም ሽምግልና ሞተ፤ ወደ ወገኖቹም ተሰበሰበ። 9ልጆቹ ይስሐቅና እስማኤል በመምሬ አጠገብ በምትገኝ በኬጢያዊው በሰዓር ልጅ በኤፍሮን ዕርሻ በመክፈላ ዋሻ ቀበሩት፤ 10ይህም የዕርሻ ቦታ አብርሃም ከኬጢያውያን25፥10 ወይም የኬጢ ልጆች የገዛው ነበር፤ ከሚስቱ ከሣራ አጠገብ በዚያ ተቀበረ። 11አብርሃም ከሞተ በኋላ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ይስሐቅን ባረከው፤ በዚህ ጊዜ ይስሐቅ በብኤርላሃይሮኢ አቅራቢያ ይኖር ነበር።

የእስማኤል ልጆች

25፥12-16 ተጓ ምብ – 1ዜና 1፥29-31

12ግብፃዊቷ የሣራ አገልጋይ አጋር፣ ለአብርሃም የወለደችለት የእስማኤል ትውልድ ይህ ነው።

13የእስማኤል ልጆች ስም እንደ ዕድሜያቸው ቅደም ተከተል እንዲህ ነው፦ የእስማኤል በኵር ልጅ ነባዮት፣ ቄዳር፣ ነብዳኤል፣ መብሳም፣ 14ማስማዕ፣ ዱማ፣ ማሣ፣ 15ኩዳን፣ ቴማን፣ ኢጡር፣ ናፌስና ቄድማ። 16እነዚህ የእስማኤል ልጆች ነበሩ፤ እነርሱም በኖሩባቸውና በሰፈ ሩባቸው ቦታዎች የዐሥራ ሁለት ነገድ አለቆች ስሞች ናቸው። 17እስማኤል በጠቅላላው መቶ ሠላሳ ሰባት ዓመት ኖረ፤ ከዚያም ሞተ፤ ወደ ወገኖቹም ተሰበሰበ። 18ዘሮቹም መኖሪያቸውን ከግብፅ ድንበር አጠገብ፣ ወደ አሦር በሚወስደው መንገድ፣ በኤውላጥና በሱር መካከል አደረጉ፤ ከወንድሞቻቸውም ሁሉ ጋር በጠላትነት ኖሩ።25፥18 ወይም በስተ ምሥራቅ ኖሩ

ያዕቆብና ዔሳው

19የአብርሃም ልጅ የይስሐቅ ትውልድ ይህ ነው፤

አብርሃም ይስሐቅን ወለደ፤ 20ይስሐቅ ርብቃን ሲያገባ ዕድሜው አርባ ዓመት ነበር፤ ርብቃ በሰሜን ምዕራብ መስጴጦምያ የሚኖረው የሶርያዊው የባቱኤል ልጅ፣ የሶርያዊውም የላባ እኅት ነበረች።

21ይስሐቅ፣ ርብቃ መካን ስለ ነበረች ስለ እርሷ ወደ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ጸለየ፤ እግዚአብሔርም (ያህዌ) ጸሎቱን ሰማ፤ ርብቃም ፀነሰች። 22ልጆቹም በማሕፀኗ ውስጥ እርስ በርሳቸው ይጋፉ ጀመር፤ እርሷም “ለምን እንዲህ ይሆንብኛል?” ብላ እግዚአብሔርን (ያህዌ) ለመጠየቅ ሄደች።

23እግዚአብሔርም (ያህዌ) እንዲህ አላት፤

“ወገኖች በማሕፀንሽ አሉ፤

ሁለትም ሕዝቦች ከውስጥሽ ተለያይተው ይወጣሉ፤

አንደኛው ከሌላው ይበረታል፤

ታላቁም ለታናሹ አገልጋይ ይሆናል” አላት።

24የመውለጃዋ ጊዜ ሲደርስም፣ እነሆ፤ በማሕፀንዋ መንታ ወንዶች ልጆች ነበሩ። 25በመጀመሪያ የተወለደው መልኩ ቀይ፣ ሰውነቱም በሙሉ ጠጒር የለበሰ ነበር፤ ስለዚህ ስሙ ዔሳው25፥25+ ዔሳው ማለት ጠጒራማ ማለት ነው፤ በተጨማሪ ኤዶም ተብሎ ተጠርቶአል፤ ትርጒሙም ቀይ ማለት ነው ተባለ። 26ከዚያም ወንድሙ ተወለደ፤ በእጁም የዔሳውን ተረከዝ ይዞ ወጣ፤ ከዚህም የተነሣ ስሙ ያዕቆብ25፥26 ያዕቆብ ማለት ተረከዝ ይይዛል ማለት ነው፤ በምሳሌያዊ አገላለጽ ያታልላል ማለት ነው ተባለ። ርብቃ ልጆቿን ስትወልድ፣ ይስሐቅ የሥልሳ ዓመት ሰው ነበር።

27ልጆቹም አደጉ፤ ዔሳው ጐበዝ ዐዳኝ፣ የበረሓም ሰው ሆነ፤ ያዕቆብ ግን ጭምት፣ ከድንኳኑ የማይወጣ ሰው ነበር። 28ይስሐቅ ከዐደን የመጣ ሥጋ ደስ ይለው ስለ ነበር፣ ዔሳውን ይወደው ነበር፤ ርብቃ ግን ያዕቆብን ትወደው ነበር።

29አንድ ቀን ያዕቆብ ወጥ እየሠራ ሳለ ዔሳው እጅግ ተርቦ ከዱር መጣ። 30ዔሳውም ያዕቆብን፣ “ቶሎ በል፤ በጣም ርቦኛልና ከዚህ ቀይ ወጥ አብላኝ” አለው። ስለዚህም ስሙ ኤዶም ተባለ።

31ያዕቆብም፣ “በመጀመሪያ ብኵርናህን ሽጥልኝ” አለው።

32ዔሳውም፣ “እነሆ፣ ልሞት ደርሻለሁ፤ ታዲያ ብኵርናው ምን ያደርግልኛል!” አለ።

33ያዕቆብም ዔሳውን፣ “እንግዲያማ፣ አስቀድመህ ማልልኝ” አለው፤ ስለዚህም ማለለት፤ ብኵርናውንም ለያዕቆብ ሸጠለት።

34ያዕቆብም ለዔሳው እንጀራና የምስር ወጥ ሰጠው፤ እርሱም ከበላና ከጠጣ በኋላ ተነሥቶ ሄደ።

ዔሳው ብኵርናውን እንዲህ አድርጎ አቃለላት።

Genesis 25:1-34

The Death of Abraham

1Abraham had taken another wife, whose name was Keturah. 2She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shuah. 3Jokshan was the father of Sheba and Dedan; the descendants of Dedan were the Ashurites, the Letushites and the Leummites. 4The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanok, Abida and Eldaah. All these were descendants of Keturah.

5Abraham left everything he owned to Isaac. 6But while he was still living, he gave gifts to the sons of his concubines and sent them away from his son Isaac to the land of the east.

7Abraham lived a hundred and seventy-five years. 8Then Abraham breathed his last and died at a good old age, an old man and full of years; and he was gathered to his people. 9His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah near Mamre, in the field of Ephron son of Zohar the Hittite, 10the field Abraham had bought from the Hittites.25:10 Or the descendants of Heth There Abraham was buried with his wife Sarah. 11After Abraham’s death, God blessed his son Isaac, who then lived near Beer Lahai Roi.

Ishmael’s Sons

12This is the account of the family line of Abraham’s son Ishmael, whom Sarah’s slave, Hagar the Egyptian, bore to Abraham.

13These are the names of the sons of Ishmael, listed in the order of their birth: Nebaioth the firstborn of Ishmael, Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, 14Mishma, Dumah, Massa, 15Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish and Kedemah. 16These were the sons of Ishmael, and these are the names of the twelve tribal rulers according to their settlements and camps. 17Ishmael lived a hundred and thirty-seven years. He breathed his last and died, and he was gathered to his people. 18His descendants settled in the area from Havilah to Shur, near the eastern border of Egypt, as you go toward Ashur. And they lived in hostility toward25:18 Or lived to the east of all the tribes related to them.

Jacob and Esau

19This is the account of the family line of Abraham’s son Isaac.

Abraham became the father of Isaac, 20and Isaac was forty years old when he married Rebekah daughter of Bethuel the Aramean from Paddan Aram25:20 That is, Northwest Mesopotamia and sister of Laban the Aramean.

21Isaac prayed to the Lord on behalf of his wife, because she was childless. The Lord answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant. 22The babies jostled each other within her, and she said, “Why is this happening to me?” So she went to inquire of the Lord.

23The Lord said to her,

“Two nations are in your womb,

and two peoples from within you will be separated;

one people will be stronger than the other,

and the older will serve the younger.”

24When the time came for her to give birth, there were twin boys in her womb. 25The first to come out was red, and his whole body was like a hairy garment; so they named him Esau.25:25 Esau may mean hairy. 26After this, his brother came out, with his hand grasping Esau’s heel; so he was named Jacob.25:26 Jacob means he grasps the heel, a Hebrew idiom for he deceives. Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to them.

27The boys grew up, and Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the open country, while Jacob was content to stay at home among the tents. 28Isaac, who had a taste for wild game, loved Esau, but Rebekah loved Jacob.

29Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished. 30He said to Jacob, “Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I’m famished!” (That is why he was also called Edom.25:30 Edom means red.)

31Jacob replied, “First sell me your birthright.”

32“Look, I am about to die,” Esau said. “What good is the birthright to me?”

33But Jacob said, “Swear to me first.” So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright to Jacob.

34Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew. He ate and drank, and then got up and left.

So Esau despised his birthright.
