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።”

Genesis 8:1-22

1But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded. 2Now the springs of the deep and the floodgates of the heavens had been closed, and the rain had stopped falling from the sky. 3The water receded steadily from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the water had gone down, 4and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. 5The waters continued to recede until the tenth month, and on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the mountains became visible.

6After forty days Noah opened a window he had made in the ark 7and sent out a raven, and it kept flying to and fro until the water had dried up from the earth. 8Then he sent out a dove to see if the water had receded from the surface of the ground. 9But the dove could find nowhere to perch because there was water over all the surface of the earth; so it returned to Noah in the ark. He reached out his hand and took the dove and brought it back to himself in the ark. 10He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark. 11When the dove returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf! Then Noah knew that the water had receded from the earth. 12He waited seven more days and sent the dove out again, but this time it did not return to him.

13By the first day of the first month of Noah’s six hundred and first year, the water had dried up from the earth. Noah then removed the covering from the ark and saw that the surface of the ground was dry. 14By the twenty-seventh day of the second month the earth was completely dry.

15Then God said to Noah, 16‘Come out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives. 17Bring out every kind of living creature that is with you – the birds, the animals, and all the creatures that move along the ground – so they can multiply on the earth and be fruitful and increase in number on it.’

18So Noah came out, together with his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives. 19All the animals and all the creatures that move along the ground and all the birds – everything that moves on land – came out of the ark, one kind after another.

20Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and, taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it. 21The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: ‘Never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even though8:21 Or humans, for every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done.

22‘As long as the earth endures,

seedtime and harvest,

cold and heat,

summer and winter,

day and night

will never cease.’
