ዘፍጥረት 8:1-22

1እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ኖኅንና በመርከቧ ውስጥ ከእርሱ ጋር የነበሩትን የዱርና የቤት እንስሳት ሁሉ አሰበ፤ በምድር ላይ ነፋስ እንዲነፍስ አደረገ፤ ውሃውም ጐደለ። 2የጥልቁ ምንጮችና የሰማይ ውሃ መስኮቶች ተዘጉ፤ ዝናቡም መዝነቡን አቆመ። 3ውሃው ከምድር ላይ ቀስ በቀስ እየቀነሰ መጣ፤ ከመቶ አምሳ ቀን በኋላም ጐደለ። 4በሰባተኛው ወር፣ በዐሥራ ሰባተኛው ቀን መርከቧ በአራራት ተራሮች ላይ ዐረፈች። 5ውሃው እስከ ዐሥረኛው ወር ድረስ እየቀነሰ መጣ፤ በዐሥረኛው ወር፣ በመጀመሪያው ቀን የተራሮቹ ጫፎች ታዩ።

6ከአርባ ቀን በኋላ ኖኅ የሠራውን የመርከቧን መስኮት ከፍቶ፣ 7ቊራን ወደ ውጭ ላከ፤ ቊራውም ውሃው ከምድር ላይ እስኪደርቅ ድረስ ወዲያና ወዲህ ይበር ነበር። 8ከዚያም በኋላ፣ ኖኅ ውሃው ከምድር ገጽ ጐድሎ እንደሆነ ለማወቅ ርግብን ላከ፤ 9ነገር ግን ውሃው የምድርን ገጽ ገና እንደ ሸፈነ ስለ ነበር፣ ተመልሳ ኖኅ ወዳለበት መርከብ መጣች፤ እርሱም እጁን ዘርግቶ ተቀበላት፤ ወደ መርከቢቱም አስገባት። 10ሰባት ቀን ከቈየ በኋላ ኖኅ ርግቧን እንደ ገና ላካት። 11እርሷም ወደ ማታ ተመለሰች፤ እነሆም የለመለመ የወይራ ቅጠል በአፏ ይዛ ነበር፤ ያን ጊዜ ኖኅ ውሃው ከምድር ላይ መጒደሉን ዐወቀ። 12ሰባት ቀንም ቈይቶ ርግቧን እንደ ገና ላካት፤ በዚህ ጊዜ ግን ርግቧ ወደ እርሱ አልተመለሰችም።

13ኖኅ በተወለደ በ601ኛው ዓመት፣ በመጀመሪያው ወር፣ ከወሩም በመጀመሪያው ቀን ውሃው ከምድር ላይ ደረቀ። 14ኖኅ በመርከቡ ላይ ያለውን ክዳን አንሥቶ ተመለከተ፤ የመሬቱም ገጽ እንደ ደረቀ አየ። በሁለተኛው ወር፣ በሃያ ሰባተኛው ቀን ምድሪቱ ሙሉ በሙሉ ደረቀች።

15ከዚያም እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ኖኅን እንዲህ አለው፤ 16“አንተና ሚስትህ፣ ልጆችህና የልጆችህ ሚስቶች ከመርከቧ ውጡ። 17እንዲዋለዱ፣ እንዲራቡና በምድር ላይ እንዲበዙ፣ ከአንተ ጋር ያሉትን እንስሳትና በምድር ላይ የሚሳቡ ሕያዋን ፍጡራንን ሁሉ ይዘሃቸው ውጣ።”

18ኖኅም ከልጆቹ፣ ከሚስቱና ከልጆቹ ሚስቶች ጋር ወጣ። 19እንስሳቱ ሁሉ፣ ወፎችም፣ በምድር የሚንቀሳቀሱ ሁሉ በየወገናቸው ከመርከቧ ወጡ።

20ከዚያም ኖኅ ለእግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) መሠዊያ ሠራ፤ መሠዊያው ላይ ንጹሕ ከሆኑት እንስሳት ሁሉ፣ እንዲሁም ንጹሕ ከሆኑት ወፎች የሚቃጠል መሥዋዕት አቀረበ፤ 21እግዚአብሔርም (ያህዌ) ደስ የሚያሰኘውን መዐዛ አሸተተ፤ በልቡም እንዲህ አለ፤ “ምንም እንኳ ሰው ገና ከልጅነቱ ጀምሮ ሐሳቡ ወደ ክፋት ያዘነበለ ቢሆንም8፥21 ወይም ስለ ሆነ በእርሱ ምክንያት ሁለተኛ ምድርን አልረግማትም፤ አሁን እንዳደረግሁት ሕያዋን ፍጡራንን ዳግመኛ አላጠፋም።

22“ምድር እስካለች ድረስ፣

የዘር ወቅትና መከር፣

ሙቀትና ቅዝቃዜ

በጋና ክረምት፣

ቀንና ሌሊት፣

አይቋረጡም።”

King James Version

Genesis 8:1-22

1And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters asswaged; 2The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained; 3And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.8.3 continually: Heb. in going and returning

4And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat. 5And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.8.5 decreased…: Heb. were in going and decreasing

6¶ And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made: 7And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth.8.7 to…: Heb. in going forth and returning 8Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground; 9But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark.8.9 pulled…: Heb. caused her to come 10And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark; 11And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth. 12And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him any more.

13¶ And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry. 14And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.

15¶ And God spake unto Noah, saying, 16Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons’ wives with thee. 17Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth. 18And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him: 19Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.8.19 kinds: Heb. families

20¶ And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.8.21 a sweet…: Heb. a savour of rest or, satisfaction8.21 for the imagination: or, through the imagination 22While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.8.22 While…: Heb. As yet all the days of the earth
