Genesis 15 Maori Bible (MAORI)

15  Muri iho i enei mea ka puta moemoea mai te kupu a Ihowa ki a Aperama, ka mea, Kaua e wehi, e Aperama: ko ahau tou whakangungu rakau, tou utu nui whakaharahara.

Na ka mea a Aperama, E te Ariki, e Ihowa, ko te aha e homai e koe ki ahau, e haere urikore nei ahau, a ko te taunga o toku whare hei tenei Erietera o Ramahiku?

I mea ano a Aperama, Titiro hoki, kahore nei i homai e koe he uri ki ahau: a akuanei, kei tetahi tamaiti i whanau ki toku whare te mahuetanga iho o oku taonga.

Na, kua puta mai te kupu a Ihowa ki a ia, i mea ia, E kore e mahue iho ou taonga mo tena; engari ka mahue iho mo tetahi e puta mai i roto i ou whekau.

Na ka kawea ia e ia ki waho, a ka mea mai, Tena tirohia atu te rangi, taua hoki nga whetu, ki te taea ena e koe te tatau: a ka mea ia ki a ia, Ka pera tou uri.

I whakapono hoki ia ki a Ihowa, a ka whakairia ki a ia hei tika.

I mea ano ia ki a ia, Ko Ihowa ahau, nana nei koe i kawe mai i Uru o nga Karari, kia hoatu ai ki a koe tenei whenua hei kainga pumau.

Ano ra ko ia, E te Ariki, e Ihowa, ma te aha ka mohio ai ahau ka riro mai tenei i ahau?

Na ka mea ia ki a ia, Tikina tetahi kau maku, hei te tau toru, me tetahi koati uha, hei te tau toru, me tetahi hipi toa, hei te tau toru, me tetahi kukupa, me tetahi pi kukupa.

10 Na tikina ana e ia aua mea katoa, a tapahia ana i waenganui, whakatakotoria ana nga wahi kia rite mai ki a raua whakawahi: ko nga manu ia kihai i tapahia e ia.

11 A ka rere iho nga manu ki nga tinana, ka aia atu e Aperama.

12 Na, i te rerenga o te ra, ka parangia a Aperama e te moe; na ko te whakawehi o te pouri kerekere e tau iho ana ki a ia.

13 A ka mea ia ki a Aperama, Kia tino mohio koe, ka noho manene tou uri ki tetahi whenua ehara nei i a ratou, a ka mahi ki a ratou; a e wha rau nga tau e whakatupuria kinotia ai ratou;

14 Ka whakawakia ano e ahau te iwi e whakamahia ai ratou: a muri iho ka puta mai ratou me nga taonga maha.

15 Ko koe ia ka haere marie ki ou matua; ka pai tou koroheketanga, a tanumia noatia koe.

16 Kei te wha ia a nga whakatupuranga ka hoki mai ratou ki konei no te mea kahore ano kia tutuki noa te hara o nga Amori.

17 Na i te tonga o te ra, no ka pouri, na, ko te oumu paowa, me te rama e ka ana, e tika ana i waenganui o aua porohanga.

18 I taua rangi ano ka whakaritea e Ihowa he kawenata ki a Aperama, ka mea ia, Ka hoatu e ahau tenei whenua ki tou uri, mai ra ano o te awa o Ihipa, a tae noa ki te awa nui, ki te awa, ki Uparati:

19 Nga Keni, nga Keniti, nga Karamoni,

20 Nga Hiti, nga Perihi, nga Repaima,

21 Nga Amori, nga Kanaani, nga Kirikahi, me nga Iepuhi.

Genesis 15 New International Version (NIV)

The Lord’s Covenant With Abram

15 After this, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision:

“Do not be afraid, Abram.
    I am your shield,[a]
    your very great reward.[b]

But Abram said, “Sovereign Lord, what can you give me since I remain childless and the one who will inherit[c] my estate is Eliezer of Damascus? And Abram said, “You have given me no children; so a servant in my household will be my heir.”

Then the word of the Lord came to him: “This man will not be your heir, but a son who is your own flesh and blood will be your heir. He took him outside and said, “Look up at the sky and count the stars—if indeed you can count them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring[d] be.”

Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.

He also said to him, “I am the Lord, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land to take possession of it.”

But Abram said, “Sovereign Lord, how can I know that I will gain possession of it?”

So the Lord said to him, “Bring me a heifer, a goat and a ram, each three years old, along with a dove and a young pigeon.

10 Abram brought all these to him, cut them in two and arranged the halves opposite each other; the birds, however, he did not cut in half. 11 Then birds of prey came down on the carcasses, but Abram drove them away.

12 As the sun was setting, Abram fell into a deep sleep, and a thick and dreadful darkness came over him. 13 Then the Lord said to him, “Know for certain that for four hundred years your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own and that they will be enslaved and mistreated there. 14 But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves, and afterward they will come out with great possessions. 15 You, however, will go to your ancestors in peace and be buried at a good old age. 16 In the fourth generation your descendants will come back here, for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its full measure.”

17 When the sun had set and darkness had fallen, a smoking firepot with a blazing torch appeared and passed between the pieces. 18 On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi[e] of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates 19 the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, 20 Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, 21 Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites.”
