Genesis 20

1 አብርሃምም ከዚያ ተነሥቶ ወደ አዜብ ምድር ሄደ፥ በቃዴስና በሱር መካከልም ተቀመጠ በጌራራም በእንግድነት ተቀመጠ።

1 And Abraham journeyed from thence toward the south country, and dwelled between Kadesh and Shur, and sojourned in Gerar.

2 አብርሃምም ሚስቱን ሣራን፦ እኅቴ ናት አለ የጌራራ ንጉሥ አቢሜሌክም ላከና ሣራን ወሰዳት።

2 And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.

3 እግዚአብሔርም ሌሊት በሕልም ወደ አቢሜሌክ መጣ፥ እንዲህም አለው፦ እነሆ፥ አንተ ስለ ወሰድሃት ሴት ምውት ነህ እርስዋ ባለ ባል ናትና።

3 But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man’s wife.

4 አቢሜሌክ ግን አልቀረባትም ነበር፤እንዲህም አለ፦ አቤቱ፥ ጻድቁን ሕዝብ ደግሞ ታጠፋለህን?

4 But Abimelech had not come near her: and he said, Lord, wilt thou slay also a righteous nation?

5 እኅቴ ናት ያለኝ እርሱ አይደለምን? እርስዋም ደግሞ ራስዋ፦ ወንድሜ ነው አለች በልቤ ቅንነትና በእጄ ንጹሕነት ይህንን አደረግሁ።

5 Said he not unto me, She is my sister? and she, even she herself said, He is my brother: in the integrity of my heart and innocency of my hands have I done this.

6 እግዚአብሔርም በሕልም አለው፦ ይህን በልብህ ቅንነት እንዳደረግህ እኔ አወቅሁ፥ እኔም ደግሞ በፊቴ ኃጢአትን እንዳትሠራ ከለከልሁህ ስለዚህም ትነካት ዘንድ አልተውሁም።

6 And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.

7 አሁንም የሰውዬውን ሚስት መልስ ነቢይ ነውና፥ ስለ አንተም ይጸልያል፥ ትድናለህም። ባትመልሳት ግን አንተ እንድትሞት ለአንተ የሆነውም ሁሉ እንዲሞት በእርግጥ እወቅ።

7 Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not, know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.

8 አቢሜሌክም በነገታው ማለደ፥ ባሪያዎቹንም ሁሉ ጠራ፥ ይህንንም ነገር ሁሉ በጆሮአቸው ተናገረ ሰዎቹም እጅግ ፈሩ።

8 Therefore Abimelech rose early in the morning, and called all his servants, and told all these things in their ears: and the men were sore afraid.

9 አቢሜሌክም አብርሃምን ጠርቶ አለው፦ ይህ ያደረግህብን ምንድር ነው? ምንስ ክፉ ሠራሁብህ? በእኔና በመንግሥቴ ላይ ትልቅ ኃጢአት አውርደሃልና የማይገባ ሥራ በእኔ ሠራህብኝ።

9 Then Abimelech called Abraham, and said unto him, What hast thou done unto us? and what have I offended thee, that thou hast brought on me and on my kingdom a great sin? thou hast done deeds unto me that ought not to be done.

10 አቢሜሌክም አብርሃምን አለው። ይህን ማድረግህ ምን አይተህ ነው?

10 And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What sawest thou, that thou hast done this thing?

11 አብርሃምም አለ፦ በዚህ ስፍራ እግዚአብሔርን መፍራት በእውነት እንደሌለ፥ ለሚስቴም ሲሉ እንደሚገድሉኝ ስላሰብሁ ነው።

11 And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not in this place; and they will slay me for my wife’s sake.

12 እርስዋም ደግሞ በእውነት እኅቴ ናት የእናቴ ልጅ አይደለችም እንጂ የአባቴ ልጅ ናት ለእኔም ሚስት ሆነች።

12 And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.

13 እግዚአብሔርም ከአባቴ ቤት ባወጣኝ ጊዜ አልኋት፦ በገባንበት አገር ሁሉ ለእኔ የምታደርጊው ወሮታ ይህ ነው፦ ወንድሜ ነው ብለሽ ስለ እኔ ተናገሪ።

13 And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my father’s house, that I said unto her, This is thy kindness which thou shalt shew unto me; at every place whither we shall come, say of me, He is my brother.

14 አቢሜሌክም በጎችንና ላሞችን ወንዶችና ሴቶች ባሪያዎችን አመጣ፥ ለአብርሃምም ሰጠው፥ ሚስቱን ሣራንም መለሰለት።

14 And Abimelech took sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and womenservants, and gave them unto Abraham, and restored him Sarah his wife.

15 አቢሜሌክም፦ እነሆ፥ ምድሬ በፊትህ ናት በወደድኸው ተቀመጥ አለ።

15 And Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before thee: dwell where it pleaseth thee.

16 ሣራንም አላት፦ እነሆ፥ ለወንድምሽ ሺህ ሚዛን ብር ሰጠሁት ያም እነሆ ከአንቺ ጋር ባሉት ሁሉ ፊት የዓይኖች መሸፈኛ ይሁንሽ ጽድቅሽ ለሰዎች ሁሉ ተገልጦአልና።

16 And unto Sarah he said, Behold, I have given thy brother a thousand pieces of silver: behold, he is to thee a covering of the eyes, unto all that are with thee, and with all other: thus she was reproved.

17 አብርሃምም ወደ እግዚአብሔር ጸለየ እግዚአብሔርም አቢሜሌክን ሚስቱንም ባሪያዎቹንም ፈወሳቸው፥ እነርሱም ወለዱ

17 So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they bare children.

18 እግዚአብሔር በአብርሃም ሚስት በሣራ ምክንያት በአቢሜሌክ ቤት ማኅፀኖችን ሁሉ በፍጹም ዘግቶ ነበርና።

18 For the Lord had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah Abraham’s wife.
