Genesis 37

1 ያዕቆብም አባቱ በስደት በኖረበት አገር በከነዓን ምድር ተቀመጠ።

1 And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan.

2 የያዕቆብም ትውልድ ይህ ነው። ዮሴፍ የአሥራ ሰባት ዓመት ልጅ በሆነ ጊዜ ከወንድሞቹ ጋር በጎችን ይጠብቅ ነበር እርሱም ከአባቱ ሚስቶች ከባላና ከዘለፋ ልጆች ጋር ሳለ ብላቴና ነበረ ዮሴፍም የክፋታቸውን ወሬ ወደ አባታቸው አመጣ።

2 These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report.

3 እስራኤልም ዮሴፍን ከልጆቹ ሁሉ ይልቅ ይወደው ነበር፥ እርሱ በሽምግልናው የወለደው ነበርና በብዙ ኅብር ያጌጠችም ቀሚስ አደረገለት።

3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.

4 ወንድሞቹም አባታቸው ከልጆቹ ሁሉ ይልቅ እንዲወደው ባዩ ጊዜ ጠሉት፥ በሰላም ይናገሩትም ዘንድ አልቻሉም።

4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.

5 ዮሴፍም ሕልምን አለመ፥ ለወንድሞቹም ነገራቸው እነርሱም እንደ ገና በብዙ ጠሉት።

5 And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.

6 እርሱም አላቸው። እኔ ያለምሁትን ሕልም ስሙ

6 And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed:

7 እነሆ እኛ በእርሻ መካከል ነዶ ስናስር ነበርና፥ እነሆም፥ የእኔ ነዶ ቀጥ ብላ ቆመች የእናንተም ነዶች በዙሪያ ከብበው እነሆ ለእኔ ነዶ ሰገዱ።

7 For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.

8 ወንድሞቹም። በእኛ ላይ ልትነግሥብን ይሆን? ወይስ ልትገዛ ይሆን? አሉት። እንደ ገናም ስለ ሕልሙና ስለ ነገሩ ይልቁን ጠሉት።

8 And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.

9 ደግሞም ሌላ ሕልምን አለመ፥ ለወንድሞቹም ነገራቸው፥እንዲህም አለ፦ እነሆ ደግሞ ሌላ ሕልምን አለምሁ እነሆ ፀሐይና ጨረቃ አሥራ አንድ ከዋክብትም ሲሰግዱልኝ አየሁ።

9 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

10 ለአባቱና ለወንድሞቹም ነገራቸው አባቱም ገሠጸው፥ እንዲህም አለው፦ ይህ ያለምኸው ሕልም ምንድር ነው? በውኑ እኔና እናትህ ወንድሞችህም መጥተን በምድር ላይ እንሰግድልህ ይሆን?

10 And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?

11 ወንድሞቹም ቀኑበት አባቱ ግን ነገሩን ይጠብቀው ነበር።

11 And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.

12 ወንድሞቹ በሴኬም የአባታቸውን በጎች ይጠብቁ ዘንድ ሄዱ።

12 And his brethren went to feed their father’s flock in Shechem.

13 እስራኤልም ዮሴፍን፦ ወንድሞችህ በሴኬም በጎችን የሚጠብቁ አይደሉምን? ወደ እነርሱ እልክህ ዘንድ ና አለው። እርሱም፦ እነሆኝ አለው።

13 And Israel said unto Joseph, Do not thy brethren feed the flock in Shechem? come, and I will send thee unto them. And he said to him, Here am I.

14 እርሱም፦ ሄደህ ወንድሞችህና በጎቹ ደኅና እንደ ሆኑ እይ፥ ወሬአቸውንም አምጣልኝ አለው። እንዲህም ከኬብሮን ቈላ ሰደደው፥ ወደ ሴኬምም መጣ።

14 And he said to him, Go, I pray thee, see whether it be well with thy brethren, and well with the flocks; and bring me word again. So he sent him out of the vale of Hebron, and he came to Shechem.

15 እነሆም በምድረ በዳ ሲቅበዘበዝ ሳለ አንድ ሰው አገኘው ሰውዮውም። ምን ትፈልጋለህ? ብሎ ጠየቀው።

15 And a certain man found him, and, behold, he was wandering in the field: and the man asked him, saying, What seekest thou?

16 እርሱም ወንድሞቼን እፈልጋለሁ በጎቹን የሚጠብቁበት ወዴት እንደ ሆነ እባክህ ንገረኝ አለ።

16 And he said, I seek my brethren: tell me, I pray thee, where they feed their flocks.

17 ሰውዮውም። ከዚህ ተነሥተዋል ወደ ዶታይን እንሂድ ሲሉም ሰምቼአቸዋለሁ አለው። ዮሴፍም ወንድሞቹን ተከታትሎ ሄደ፥ በዶታይንም አገኛቸው።

17 And the man said, They are departed hence; for I heard them say, Let us go to Dothan. And Joseph went after his brethren, and found them in Dothan.

18 እነርሱም በሩቅ ሳለ አዩት፥ ወደ እነርሱም ገና ሳይቀርብ ይገድሉት ዘንድ በእርሱ ላይ ተማከሩ።

18 And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto them, they conspired against him to slay him.

19 አንዱም ለአንዱ እንዲህ አለው፦ ያ ባለ ሕልም ይኸው መጣ።

19 And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh.

20 አሁንም ኑ፥ እንግደለውና በአንድ ጕድጓድ ውስጥ እንጣለው። ክፉ አውሬም በላው እንላለን ከሕልሞቹም የሚሆነውን እናያለን።

20 Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him: and we shall see what will become of his dreams.

21 ሮቤልም ይህን ሰማ፥ ከእጃቸውም አዳነው፥እንዲህም አለ፦ ሕይወቱን አናጥፋ።

21 And Reuben heard it, and he delivered him out of their hands; and said, Let us not kill him.

22 ሮቤል። ደም አታፍስሱ በዚህች ምድረ በዳ ባለችው ጕድጓድ ጣሉት፥ ነገር ግን እጃችሁን አትጣሉበት አላቸው። እንዲህም ማለቱ ከእጃቸው ሊያድነውና ወደ አባቱ ሊመልሰው ነው።

22 And Reuben said unto them, Shed no blood, but cast him into this pit that is in the wilderness, and lay no hand upon him; that he might rid him out of their hands, to deliver him to his father again.

23 እንዲህም ሆነ ዮሴፍም ወደ ወንድሞቹ በቀረበ ጊዜ የለበሳትን በብዙ ኅብር ያጌጠቺቱን ቀሚሱን ገፈፉት

23 And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they stript Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him;

24 ወስደውም ወደ ጕድጓድ ጣሉት ጕድጓዱም ውኃ የሌለበት ደረቅ ነበረ።

24 And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no water in it.

25 እንጀራም ሊበሉ ተቀመጡ ዓይናቸውንም አንሥተው አዩ፥ እነሆም የእስማኤላውያን ነገዶች ወደ ግብፅ ለመውረድ ከገለዓድ መጡ ግመሎቻቸውም ሽቱና በለሳን ከርቤም ተጭነው ነበር።

25 And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes and looked, and, behold, a company of Ishmeelites came from Gilead with their camels bearing spicery and balm and myrrh, going to carry it down to Egypt.

26 ይሁዳም ወንድሞቹን እንዲህ አላቸው፦ ወንድማችንን ገድለን ደሙን ብንሸሽግ ጥቅማችን ምንድር ነው?

26 And Judah said unto his brethren, What profit is it if we slay our brother, and conceal his blood?

27 ኑ፥ ለእስማኤላውያን እንሽጠው፥ እጃችንን ግን በእርሱ ላይ አንጣል፥ ወንድማችን ሥጋችንም ነውና። ወንድሞቹም የእርሱን ነገር ሰሙት።

27 Come, and let us sell him to the Ishmeelites, and let not our hand be upon him; for he is our brother and our flesh. And his brethren were content.

28 የምድያም ነጋዶችም አለፉ እነርሱም ዮሴፍን አንሥተው ከጕድጓድ አወጡት ለእስማኤላውያንም ዮሴፍን በሀያ ብር ሸጡት እነርሱም ዮሴፍን ወደ ግብፅ ወሰዱት።

28 Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.

29 ሮቤልም ወደ ጕድጓዱ ተመለሰ፥ እነሆም ዮሴፍ በጕድጓድ የለም ልብሱንም ቀደደ።

29 And Reuben returned unto the pit; and, behold, Joseph was not in the pit; and he rent his clothes.

30 ወደ ወንድሞቹም ተመልሶ፦ ብላቴናው የለም እንግዲህ እኔ ወዴት እሄዳለሁ? አለ።

30 And he returned unto his brethren, and said, The child is not; and I, whither shall I go?

31 የዮሴፍንም ቀሚስ ወሰዱ፥ የፍየል አውራም አርደው ቀሚሱን በደም ነከሩት።

31 And they took Joseph’s coat, and killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the coat in the blood;

32 ብዙ ኅብር ያለበትን ቀሚሱንም ላኩ፥ ወደ አባታቸውም አገቡት፥ እንዲህም አሉት፦ ይህንን አገኘነ ይህ የልጅህ ልብስ እንደ ሆነ ወይም እንዳልሆነ እስኪ እየው።

32 And they sent the coat of many colours, and they brought it to their father; and said, This have we found: know now whether it be thy son’s coat or no.

33 እርሱም አውቆ። የልጄ ቀሚስ ነው ክፉ አውሬ በልቶታል ዮሴፍ በእርግጥ ተበጫጭቋል አለ።

33 And he knew it, and said, It is my son’s coat; an evil beast hath devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces.

34 ያዕቆብም ልብሱን ቀደደ፥ በወገቡም ማቅ ታጥቆ ለልጁ ብዙ ቀን አለቀሰ።

34 And Jacob rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his loins, and mourned for his son many days.

35 ወንዶች ልጆቹና ሴቶች ልጆቹም ሁሉ ሊያጽናኑት ተነሡ መጽናናትን እንቢ አለ፥ እንዲህም አለ። ወደ ልጄ ወደ ሙታን ስፍራ እያዘንሁ እወርዳለሁ። አባቱም ስለ እርሱ አለቀሰ።

35 And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down into the grave unto my son mourning. Thus his father wept for him.

36 እነዚያ የምድያም ሰዎች ግን ዮሴፍን በግብፅ ለፈርዖን ጃንደረባ ለዘበኞቹ አለቃ ለጲጥፋራ ሸጡት።

36 And the Midianites sold him into Egypt unto Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh’s, and captain of the guard.
