Genesis 44

Na ka whakahau ia ki te kaitohutohu o tona whare, ka mea, Whakakiia nga peke a aua tangata ki nga kai e taea te whawhao ki roto, me maka ano te moni a tenei, a tenei, ki te waha o tana peke. Whaowhina hoki taku kapu, te kapu hiriwa, ki te waha o te peke a te whakaotinga, me te moni ano mo tana witi. Na rite tonu tana i mea ai ki ta Hohepa kupu i ki ai. A, ka marama te ata, ka tonoa atu aua tangata, ratou me a ratou kaihe. A, no to ratou haerenga atu i te pa, kihai i matara, ka mea a Hohepa ki te kaitohutohu o tona whare, Whakatika, whaia aua tangata; a, ka mau ratou i a koe, ka mea ki a ratou, He aha i utua ai e koutou te pai ki te kino? Ehara ianei tenei i te mea e inu ai toku ariki, i tana hoki e kite tohu ai ia? ka kino ta koutou mahi. Na ka mau ratou i a ia, a korerotia ana e ia aua kupu ki a ratou. A ka mea ratou ki a ia, He aha enei kupu i korerotia ai e toku ariki? Aue, kia meatia tenei mea e au pononga. Nana, ko te moni i kitea e matou i te waha o a matou peke, i whakahokia mai e matou ki a koe i te whenua o Kanaana: a kia tahae matou hei aha i te hiriwa, i te koura ranei, i roto i te whare o tou ariki? Ki te mea ka kitea taua mea ki tetahi o au pononga, kia mate ia, kia waiho ano matou hei pononga ma toku ariki. 10 A ka mea ia, Kia rite ano hoki aianei ki ta koutou i mea ai: e kitea taua mea ki tetahi, hei pononga ia maku; a kahore he whakahe mo koutou. 11 Na hohoro tonu ta ratou tuku iho i tana peke, i tana peke, ki te whenua, a whakatuwheratia ana e ratou tana peke, tana peke. 12 Na ka rapu ia, timata i te matamua a whakamutu ki te whakaotinga: a ka kitea te kapu i roto i te peke a Pineamine. 13 Na ka haehae ratou i o ratou kakahu, a whakawaha ana e ratou tana kaihe, tana kaihe, hoki ana ki te pa. 14 Na ka haere a Hura ratou ko ona tuakana, ko ona teina, ki te whare o Hohepa; a i reira tonu ia: a tapapa ana ki te whenua i tona aroaro. 15 Na ka mea a Hohepa ki a ratou, He aha tenei mea i meatia nei e koutou? kihai ranei koutou i mahara he tangata matakite te penei me ahau nei? 16 Na ka mea a Hura, He aha ta matou e mea ai ki toku ariki? he aha ta matou e korero ai? me aha ranei hei whakatika i a matou? kua kitea e te Atua te hara o au pononga; na, tenei matou hei pononga ma toku ariki, matou tahi hoki ko te tangata i kit ea nei te kapu ki a ia. 17 Ano ra ko ia, Engari, kia meatia tenei e ahau! Ko te tangata i kitea nei te kapu ki a ia, ko ia hei pononga maku; ko koutou ia, haere marie koutou ki runga, ki to koutou papa.

18 Katahi ka whakatata a Hura ki a ia, ka mea, Tukua tau pononga, e toku ariki, kia korero i tetahi kupu ki nga taringa o toku ariki, kei mura hoki tou riri ki tau pononga: ko korua hoki ko Parao rite tahi. 19 I ui mai toku ariki ki ana pononga, i mea, He papa ranei to koutou, he teina ranei? 20 A ka mea matou ki toku ariki, He papa ano to matou, he koroheke, me tetahi tama o tona koroheketanga, he mea iti; kua mate hoki tona tuakana, a ko ia anake i mahue o nga tamariki a tona whaea, e aroha ana hoki tona papa ki a ia. 21 Na ka mea mai koe ki au pononga, Kawea mai ia ki raro nei, ki ahau, kia tau atu ai oku kanohi ki a ia. 22 Katahi matou ka mea ki toku ariki, E kore e ahei kia whakarerea tona papa e taua tamaiti: no te mea ka mate tona papa ki te mahue i a ia. 23 Na ka mea koe ki au pononga, Ki te kahore to koutou teina, te whakaotinga, e haere tahi mai i a koutou ki raro nei, e kore koutou e kite i toku kanohi a muri ake nei. 24 A, i to matou haerenga ki runga, ki tau pononga, ki toku papa, na, ka korerotia e matou nga kupu a toku ariki ki a ia. 25 A ka mea mai to matou papa, Hoki atu ki te hoko i tetahi wahi kai ma tatou. 26 Na ka mea matou, E kore e ahei ki a matou te haere ki raro: ki te mea kei a matou to matou teina, te whakaotinga, na, ka haere matou ki raro: no te mea hoki e kore e taea e matou te titiro ki te kanohi o taua tangata, ki te kahore to matou teina, te whakaotinga, i a matou. 27 Na ka mea tau pononga, toku papa, ki a matou, E mohio ana koutou, tokorua nga tama a maua ko taku wahine: 28 A i haere atu tetahi i toku taha, i mea hoki ahau, He pono kua haea putia ia; a kahore ahau i kite i a ia a mohoa noa nei: 29 Ki te tangohia ano hoki tenei e koutou i toku aroaro, a ka pono he aitua ki a ia, katahi ka meinga e koutou kia heke tangi atu toku koroheketanga ki te po. 30 Heoi, ki te haere atu ahau ki tau pononga, ki toku papa, a kahore taua tamaiti i a matou; kei roto nei hoki i tona wairua tona wairua e paihere ana; 31 Na, kei tona kitenga kua kore tenei tama, ka mate ia: a ka meinga e matou, e au pononga, te koroheketanga o tau pononga, o to matou papa, kia heke tangi atu ki te po. 32 I waiho hoki tau pononga hei utu mo tenei tama ki toku papa, i mea ahau, Ki te kahore ia e kawea mai e ahau ki a koe, na, hei whakahenga ahau ma toku papa i nga ra katoa. 33 Heoi kia noho ra tau pononga aianei hei utu mo tenei tama, hei pononga ma toku ariki; a kia haere tahi te tama i ona tuakana ki runga. 34 Me pehea hoki ahau e haere ai ki runga, ki toku papa, ki te kahore te tama i ahau? kei kite ahau i te kino e pa ana ki toku papa.
