Mwisho Wa Gharika
18:1 Mwa 9:15; 19:29; 21:1; 30:22; Kut 2:23-24; Ay 12:15; 14:13; Rut 4:13; Nah 1:4; 1Sam 1:11, 19; 2Fal 20:3; 1Nya 16:15; Neh 1:8; 5:19; 13:11-31; Hes 10:9; Za 66:6; 105:42; 106:4; Lk 1:54, 72; Kut 14:21; Yos 2:10; 3:16; Isa 11:15; 44:27Mungu akamkumbuka Noa na wanyama wote wa porini na wa kufugwa waliokuwa naye ndani ya safina, akatuma upepo ukavuma katika dunia, nayo maji yakaondoka. 28:2 Mwa 7:4, 11Zile chemchemi zilizo chini sana ya ardhi pamoja na malango ya mafuriko ya mbinguni yakawa yamefungwa nayo mvua ikawa imekoma kunyesha kutoka angani. 38:3 Mwa 7:24Maji yakaendelea kupungua taratibu katika nchi. Kunako mwisho wa siku ya 150, maji yalikuwa yamepungua, 48:4 Mwa 7:11, 20; 2Fal 19:37; Yer 51:27katika siku ya kumi na saba ya mwezi wa saba, safina ikatua katika milima ya Ararati. 5Maji yakaendelea kupungua hadi mwezi wa kumi, na siku ya kwanza ya mwezi wa kumi, vilele vya milima vikaonekana.
6Baada ya siku arobaini Noa akafungua dirisha alilokuwa amelifanya katika safina 78:7 Amu 11:15; Kum 14:14; 1Fal 17:4-6; Ay 38:41; Za 147:9; Mit 30:17; Isa 34:11; Lk 12:24na akamtoa kunguru, akawa akiruka kwenda na kurudi mpaka maji yalipokwisha kukauka juu ya nchi. 88:8 Ay 30:31; Za 55:6; 74:19; Wim 2:12-14; Isa 38:14; 59:11; 60:8; Yer 48:28; Eze 7:16; Nah 2:7; Hos 7:11; 11:11; Mt 3:16; 10:16; Yn 1:32Kisha akamtoa hua ili aone kama maji yameondoka juu ya uso wa ardhi. 9Lakini hua hakupata mahali pa kutua kwa kuwa maji yalienea juu ya uso wa dunia yote, kwa hiyo akarudi kwa Noa ndani ya safina. Noa akanyoosha mkono akamchukua yule hua akamrudisha ndani ya safina. 10Noa akangojea siku saba zaidi kisha akamtoa tena hua kutoka safina. 11Wakati hua aliporejea kwa Noa jioni, alikuwa amechukua katika mdomo wake jani bichi la mzeituni, lililochumwa wakati ule ule! Ndipo Noa akajua ya kuwa maji yameondoka juu ya uso wa dunia. 12Akangojea siku saba zaidi na akamtuma tena hua, lakini wakati huu hua hakurudi tena kwa Noa.
138:13 Mwa 5:32Katika siku ya kwanza ya mwezi wa kwanza ya mwaka 601, wa kuishi kwake Noa, maji yalikuwa yamekauka duniani. Kisha Noa akafungua mlango wa safina akaona ya kuwa uso wa ardhi ulikuwa umekauka. 148:14 Mwa 7:11Katika siku ya ishirini na saba ya mwezi wa pili dunia ilikuwa imekauka kabisa.
15Ndipo Mungu akamwambia Noa, 168:16 Mwa 7:13“Toka ndani ya safina, wewe na mkeo na wanao na wake zao. 178:17 Mwa 1:22Utoe nje kila aina ya kiumbe hai aliye pamoja nawe: Ndege, wanyama na viumbe vyote vitambaavyo juu ya ardhi, ili wakazae, na kuongezeka na kuijaza tena dunia.”
188:18 1Pet 3:20; 2Pet 2:5Kwa hiyo Noa akatoka nje pamoja na mkewe, wanawe na wake zao. 19Wanyama wote na viumbe vyote vitambaavyo juu ya ardhi na ndege wote, kila kitu kiendacho juu ya nchi, aina moja baada ya nyingine vikatoka katika safina, kila aina ya kiumbe, kimoja baada ya kingine.
Noa Atoa Dhabihu
208:20 Mwa 12:7-8; 13:18; 22:9; 26:25; 33:20; 35:7; 7:8; 22:2-13; Kut 17:15; 24:4; 10:25; 20:24; 40:29; Ay 42:8; Law 1:3; 4:29; 6:8-13; Hes 6:11; Amu 6:26; 11:31; 1Sam 20:29Kisha Noa akamjengea Bwana madhabahu, akachukua baadhi ya wale wanyama na ndege wote walio safi, akatoa sadaka za kuteketezwa juu ya madhabahu. 218:21 Kut 29:18, 25; Law 1:9, 13; 2:9; 4:31; Hes 15:3, 7; 2Kor 2:15; Mwa 3:17; 6:5; 9:11-15; Yer 17:9; Za 51:5; Mt 15:19; Rum 1:21; Yer 44:11; Isa 54:9Bwana akasikia harufu nzuri ya kupendeza, naye akasema moyoni mwake, “Kamwe sitailaani tena ardhi kwa sababu ya mwanadamu, hata ingawa kila mwelekeo wa moyo wake ni mbaya tangu ujana. Kamwe sitaangamiza tena viumbe hai vyote kama nilivyofanya.
228:22 Yos 3:15; Za 67:6; 74:17; Yer 5:24; Zek 14:8; Mwa 1:14“Kwa muda dunia idumupo,
wakati wa kupanda na wa kuvuna,
wakati wa baridi na wa joto,
wakati wa kiangazi na wa masika,
usiku na mchana
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
