Mungu Aweka Agano Na Noa
19:1 Mwa 1:22Ndipo Mungu akambariki Noa na wanawe, akiwaambia, “Zaeni mkaongezeke kwa idadi na mkaijaze tena dunia. 29:2 Mwa 1:26Wanyama wote wa duniani, ndege wote wa angani, kila kiumbe kitambaacho juu ya ardhi, na samaki wote wa baharini wamekabidhiwa mikononi mwenu, nao watawaogopa na kuwahofu. 39:3 Mwa 1:29; Kol 2:16; Mdo 10:15Kila kitu chenye uhai kiendacho kitakuwa chakula chenu. Kama vile nilivyowapa mimea mbalimbali, sasa nawapa kila kitu.
49:4 Law 3:17; 7:26; 17:10-14; 19:26; Kum 12:16, 23-25; 15:23; 1Sam 14:33; Eze 33:25; Mdo 15:20, 29“Lakini kamwe msile nyama ambayo bado ina damu ya uhai wake, kwa maana damu ni uhai. 59:5 Mwa 4:10; 42:22; 50:15; 1Fal 2:32; 2Nya 24:22; Za 9:12; Kut 21:28-32Hakika damu ya uhai wenu nitaidai. Nitaidai kutoka kwa kila mnyama. Kutoka kwa kila mwanadamu pia nitaidai kwa ajili ya uhai wa mtu mwenzake.
69:6 Mwa 1:26; 4:14; Amu 9:24; Mt 26:52“Yeyote amwagaye damu ya mwanadamu,
damu yake itamwagwa na mwanadamu,
kwa kuwa katika mfano wa Mungu,
Mungu alimuumba mwanadamu.
79:7 Mwa 1:22; 9:19Kuhusu ninyi, zaeni mwongezeke kwa wingi, mzidi katika dunia na kuijaza.”
8Ndipo Mungu akamwambia Noa na wanawe pamoja naye: 99:9 Mwa 6:18“Sasa mimi ninaweka Agano langu nanyi, pamoja na uzao wenu baada yenu, 10pia na kila kiumbe hai kilichokuwa pamoja nanyi: Ndege, wanyama wa kufugwa na wanyama wote wa porini, wale wote waliotoka katika safina pamoja nanyi, kila kiumbe hai duniani. 119:11 Isa 24:5; 33:8; 54:9; Hos 6:7; Mwa 8:21Ninaweka Agano nanyi: Kamwe uhai hautafutwa tena kwa gharika, kamwe haitakuwepo tena gharika ya kuangamiza dunia.”
129:12 Mwa 17:11-12; Kut 12:14; Law 3:17; 6:18; 17:7; Hes 10:8Mungu akasema, “Hii ni ishara ya Agano ninalofanya kati yangu na ninyi na kila kiumbe hai kilicho pamoja nanyi, Agano kwa vizazi vyote vijavyo: 139:13 Eze 1:28; Ufu 4:3; 10:1Nimeweka upinde wangu wa mvua mawinguni, nao utakuwa ishara ya Agano nifanyalo kati yangu na dunia. 14Wakati wowote ninapotanda mawingu juu ya dunia na upinde wa mvua ukijitokeza mawinguni, 159:15 Mwa 8:1, 21; Kut 2:24; 6:5; 34:10; Law 26:42-45; Kum 7:9; Za 89:34; 103:18; 105:8; 106:45; Eze 16:60nitakumbuka Agano langu kati yangu na ninyi na viumbe vyote vilivyo hai vya kila aina. Kamwe maji hayatakuwa tena gharika ya kuangamiza uhai wote. 169:16 Mwa 17:7-13, 19; 2Sam 7:13; 23:5; Za 105:9-10; Isa 9:7; 54:10; 55:3; 59:21; 61:8; Yer 31:34; 32:40; 33:21; Eze 16:60; 37:26; Ebr 13:20Wakati wowote upinde wa mvua unapotokea mawinguni, nitauona na kukumbuka Agano la milele kati ya Mungu na viumbe vyote vilivyo hai vya kila aina duniani.”
17Hivyo Mungu akamwambia Noa, “Hii ndiyo ishara ya Agano ambalo nimelifanya kati yangu na viumbe vyote vilivyo hai duniani.”
Wana Wa Noa
189:18 Mwa 5:32; 10:6, 15; Lk 3:36Wana wa Noa waliotoka ndani ya safina ni: Shemu, Hamu na Yafethi. (Hamu ndiye alikuwa baba wa Kanaani.) 199:19 Mwa 5:32; 1:22; 10:32; 11:4-9Hawa ndio waliokuwa wana watatu wa Noa, kutokana nao watu walienea katika dunia.
20Noa akawa mkulima, akawa mtu wa kwanza kupanda mizabibu. 219:21 Mwa 19:35Alipokunywa huo mvinyo wake akalewa na akalala uchi kwenye hema lake. 229:22 Hab 2:15Hamu, baba wa Kanaani, akauona uchi wa baba yake na kuwaeleza ndugu zake wawili waliokuwa nje. 23Lakini Shemu na Yafethi wakachukua nguo wakaitanda mabegani mwao wote wawili, kisha wakaenda kinyumenyume, wakaufunika uchi wa baba yao. Nyuso zao zilielekea upande mwingine ili wasiuone uchi wa baba yao.
24Noa alipolevuka kutoka kwenye mvinyo wake na kujua lile ambalo mwanawe mdogo kuliko wote alilokuwa amemtendea, 259:25 Mwa 27:12, 29-40; 25:23; 37:10; 49:8; Kut 20:5; Za 79:8; Isa 14:21; Yer 31:29; 32:18; Hes 24:18; Yos 9:23akasema,
Atakuwa mtumwa wa chini sana
kuliko watumwa wote kwa ndugu zake.”
269:26 Mwa 14:20; Kut 18:10; Za 7:17; 1Fal 9:21Pia akasema,
“Abarikiwe Bwana, Mungu wa Shemu!
Kanaani na awe mtumwa wa Shemu.
279:27 Mwa 10:2-5; Efe 2:13-14; 3:6Mungu na apanue mipaka ya Yafethi;
Yafethi na aishi katika mahema ya Shemu,
na Kanaani na awe mtumwa wake.”
28Baada ya gharika Noa aliishi miaka 350. 299:29 Mwa 2:17Noa alikuwa na jumla ya miaka 950, ndipo akafa.
1And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. 2And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. 3Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. 4But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. 5And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man. 6Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man. 7And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.
8¶ And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, 9And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; 10And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth. 11And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.
12And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. 14And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: 15And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. 17And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.
18¶ And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.9.18 Canaan: Heb. Chenaan 19These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread. 20And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard: 21And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent. 22And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. 23And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness.
24And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. 25And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. 26And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.9.26 his servant: or, servant to them 27God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.9.27 enlarge: or, persuade
28¶ And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years. 29And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years: and he died.
