32 →
1

Wasesizwa amazwi amadodana kaLabani esithi: UJakobe uthethe konke okukababa; langalokho okwakungokukababa wenza lonke loludumo.

2

UJakobe wasebona ubuso bukaLabani, futhi khangela, babunganjengamandulo kuye.

3

yasisithi kuJakobe: Buyela elizweni laboyihlo lezihlotsheni zakho; njalo ngizakuba lawe.

4

UJakobe wasethuma wababiza oRasheli loLeya emadlelweni emhlanjini wakhe,

5

wathi kibo: Ngiyabona ubuso bukayihlo.

6

Futhi lina liyazi ukuthi ngamandla ami wonke ngimsebenzele uyihlo.

7

Kodwa uyihlo ungikhohlisile, waphendula iholo lami okwezikhathi ezilitshumi, kanti uNkulunkulu kamvumelanga ukwenza okubi kimi.

8

Kwathi esitsho njalo: Ezilamabala zizakuba liholo lakho, khona umhlambi wonke wazala ezilamabala. Kwathi esitsho njalo: Ezingamaqamule zizakuba liholo lakho, khona umhlambi wonke wazala ezingamaqamule.

9

Ngokunjalo uNkulunkulu uthethe izifuyo zikayihlo, wanginika.

10

Kwasekusithi, ngesikhathi umhlambi umitha, ngaphakamisa amehlo ami ngabona ephutsheni, khangela-ke, izimpongo ezikhwela umhlambi zazingamaqamule, zilamabala, lezizinala.

11

Ingilosi kaNkulunkulu yasisithi kimi ephutsheni: Jakobe! Ngathi: Khangela ngi lapha .

12

Yasisithi: Ake uphakamise amehlo akho ubone, zonke impongo ezikhwela umhlambi zingamaqamule, zilamabala lezizinala.

13

NginguNkulunkulu weBhetheli lapho owagcoba khona insika, owathembisa khona isithembiso kimi.

14

ORasheli loLeya baphendula bathi kuye: Siselesabelo lelifa endlini kababa yini?

15

Kasibalwa nje ngabezizwe kuye yini? Ngoba wasithengisa, futhi wadla lokudla imali yethu.

16

Ngoba inotho yonke uNkulunkulu ayemuke ubaba ingeyethu leyabantwana bethu; khathesi-ke, konke uNkulunkulu akutsho kuwe, kwenze.

17

UJakobe wasesukuma, wakhweza amadodana akhe labomkakhe emakameleni;

18

waqhuba izifuyo zakhe zonke, layo impahla yakhe yonke abeyizuzile, izifuyo ayelazo, ayezizuze ePadani-Arama, ukuze aye kuIsaka uyise elizweni leKhanani.

19

Njalo uLabani esehambile ukuyagunda izimvu zakhe, uRasheli weba izithombe uyise ayelazo.

20

UJakobe wasuka enyenya engananzelelwe kuLabani umSiriya, ngoba kamazisanga ukuthi uyabaleka.

21

Wasebaleka, yena lakho konke ayelakho, wasukuma, wachapha umfula, wakhangelisa ubuso bakhe entabeni yeGileyadi.

22

Kwasekusaziswa uLabani ngosuku lwesithathu ukuthi uJakobe ubalekile.

23

Wasethatha abafowabo kanye laye, waxotshana laye ibanga lensuku eziyisikhombisa, wamfica entabeni yeGileyadi.

24

UNkulunkulu wasesiza kuLabani umSiriya ephutsheni lebusuku, wathi kuye: Ziqaphele, hlezi ukhulume loJakobe okuhle kumbe okubi.

25

ULabani wasemfica uJakobe. Njalo uJakobe wayemise ithente lakhe entabeni; uLabani laye kanye labafowabo bamisa entabeni yeGileyadi.

26

ULabani wasesithi kuJakobe: Wenzeni, ukuthi usuke unyenye ngingananzelele?

27

Ubalekeleni ngasese, unginyenyela, ungangazisanga, ukuthi ngabe ngikuvalelise ngokuthokoza langengoma, ngesigubhu langechacho?

28

Njalo kawungivumelanga ukuthi ngange ngokwenza lokho .

29

Kusemandleni esandla sami ukwenza okubi kini; kodwa uNkulunkulu kayihlo wathi: Ziqaphele ukuthi ungakhulumi loJakobe okuhle kumbe okubi.

30

Khathesi-ke, ukuhamba uhambile, ngoba ngokukhanuka ukhanukile indlu kayihlo; webeleni onkulunkulu bami?

31

UJakobe wasephendula wathi kuLabani: Ngoba ngesaba, ngoba wathi: Hlezi ungihluthunele amadodakazi akho.

32

Lowo ozathola kuye onkulunkulu bakho kangaphili; phambi kwabafowethu zinanzelelele okungokwakho okukimi, uzithathele. Ngoba uJakobe wayengazi ukuthi uRasheli wayebebile.

33

ULabani wasengena ethenteni likaJakobe lethenteni likaLeya, lethenteni lezincekukazi ezimbili, kodwa katholanga. Waphuma ethenteni likaLeya, wangena ethenteni likaRasheli.

34

Kodwa uRasheli wayethethe izithombe, wazifaka esikhwameni sesihlalo sekamela, wahlala phezu kwazo. ULabani waphumputha ithente lonke kodwa katholanga.

35

Wasesithi kuyise: Kalungavuthi ulakaemehlweni enkosi yami ukuthi ngingesukume phambi kwakho, ngoba indlela yabesifazana ikimi. Wabhudula, kodwa kazitholanga izithombe.

36

UJakobe wasethukuthela, waphikisana loLabani; uJakobe waphendula wathi kuLabani: Isiphambeko sami siyini, isono sami siyini, ukuthi ungixotshe ngokutshiseka?

37

Njengoba usubambabambe kuyo impahla yami yonke, utholeni okwayo impahla yonke yendlu yakho? Ibeke lapha phambi kwabafowethu ukuze baqume phakathi kwethu sobabili.

38

Iminyaka le engamatshumi amabili ngangilawe; izimvukazi zakho lezibhuzikazi zakho kaziphunzanga, lezinqama zemihlambi yakho kangizidlanga.

39

Ezadatshulwayo kangizilethanga kuwe, mina ngazihlawula; esandleni sami wazibiza, zebiwe emini loba zebiwe ebusuku.

40

Ngangi njaloemini imbalela yangidla, lamakhaza ebusuku, ubuthongo babaleka emehlweni ami.

41

Iminyaka le engamatshumi amabili bengisemzini wakho, ngakusebenzela okweminyaka elitshumi lane ngenxa yamadodakazi akho amabili.

42

Ngaphandle kokuthi uNkulunkulu.

43

ULabani wasephendula wathi kuJakobe: Amadodakazi angamadodakazi ami, lamadodana angamadodana ami, lomhlambi ngumhlambi wami, lakho konke okubonayo kungokwami; lemadodakazini ami ngizakwenzani kuwo lamuhla, loba kubantwana bawo abawazeleyo?

44

Khathesi-ke, woza, asenze isivumelwano.

45

UJakobe wasethatha ilitshe, walimisa laba yinsika.

46

UJakobe wasesithi kubafowabo: Buthani amatshe. Basebethatha amatshe, benza inqumbi; badla khona phezu kwenqumbi.

47

ULabani waseyibiza ngokuthiyiJegari-Sahadutha.

48

ULabani wasesithi: Linqwaba iyibufakazi phakathi kwami lawe lamuhla. Ngakho bayitha ibizo layo iGaledi,

49

leMizipa, ngoba wathi: kayilinde phakathi kwami lawe, lapho singabonani omunye lomunye.

50

Uba uhlupha amadodakazi ami, njalo uba uthatha abafazi phezu kwamadodakazi ami, kakulamuntu olathi, bona, uNkulunkulu ungumfakazi phakathi kwami lawe.

51

ULabani wasesithi kuJakobe: Khangela linqwaba, khangela-ke lensika engiyiphosileyo phakathi kwami lawe.

52

Linqwaba kayibe yibufakazi, lensika kayibe yibufakazi, bokuthi mina kangiyikuyidlula linqwaba ngiye kuwe, lawe kawuyikuyidlula linqwaba lalinsika uze kimi ngokubi.

53

UNkulunkulu kaAbrahama loNkulunkulu kaNahori, kahlulele phakathi kwethu, uNkulunkulu kayise wabo. UJakobe wasefunga ngoKwesaba kayise uIsaka.

54

UJakobe wasehlaba umhlatshelo entabeni, wabiza abafowabo ukuthi badle isinkwa; basebesidla isinkwa, balala entabeni.

55

ULabani wasevuka ekuseni kakhulu, wanga amadodana akhe lamadodakazi akhe; uLabani wasehamba wabuyela endaweni yakhe.
