Genesis 17 Maori Bible (MAORI)

17  A, i te mea ka iwa tekau ma iwa nga tau o Aperama, ka puta mai a Ihowa ki a Aperama, ka mea ki a ia, Ko ahau te Atua Kaha Rawa; haereere i mua i toku aroaro, kia tapatahi hoki te whakaaro.

A ka waiho e ahau taku kawenata ki waenganui i a taua, ka tino whakanui rawa ano ahau i a koe.

Na ka kupapa te kanohi o Aperama: a ka korero te Atua ki a ia, ka mea,

Na ko ahau, kei a koe taku kawenata, a ka matua koe mo nga iwi maha.

E kore hoki tou ingoa e huaina a muri ake nei ko Aperama, engari ko Aperahama te ingoa mou; ka meinga hoki koe e ahau hei matua mo nga iwi maha.

Ka meinga ano koe e ahau kia tino hua rawa, ka meinga koe e ahau hei take mo nga iwi, a ka puta mai nga kingi i roto i a koe.

A ka whakapumautia e ahau taku kawenata ki waenganui oku, o koutou hoki ko ou uri i muri i a koe, o tera whakatupuranga, o tera whakatupuranga o ratou, hei kawenata mau tonu, a hei Atua ahau mou, mo ou uri hoki i muri i a koe.

A ka hoatu e ahau ki a koe, ki ou uri hoki i muri i a koe, te whenua e noho manene na koe, te whenua katoa o Kanaana, hei kainga pumau; a hei Atua ahau mo ratou.

I mea ano te Atua ki a Aperahama, Ina, ko koe, me whakarite e koe taku kawenata, e koutou ko ou uri i muri i a koe, e tera whakatupuranga, e tera whakatupuranga o ratou.

10 Ko taku kawenata tenei hei whakaritenga ma koutou i waenganui oku, o koutou ko ou uri i muri i a koe; Me kokoti a koutou tane katoa.

11 Me kokoti e koutou to koutou kiri matamata: a ka waiho tena hei tohu mo te kawenata i waenganui oku, o koutou.

12 Me kokoti e koutou nga tamariki ina waru nga ra, nga tane katoa o tena whakatupuranga, o tena whakatupuranga o koutou, nga mea i whanau i roto i te whare, i hokona ranei ki te moni i tetahi tangata ke, ehara nei i te uri nou.

13 Me kokoti tonu te tangata i whanau i roto i tou whare, i hokona ranei ki tau moni, a ka mau taku kawenata ki o koutou kikokiko, hei kawenata mau tonu.

14 A, ko te tane kihai i kotia, kihai nei i kotia tona kiri matamata, ka hatepea atu tena wairua i roto i tona iwi; kua whakataka e ia taku kawenata.

15 A ka mea te Atua ki a Aperahama, Ko Harai, ko tau wahine, kaua e huaina tona ingoa ko Harai, engari ko Hara he ingoa mona.

16 A ko manaaki ahau i a ia, ka hoatu ano hoki i tetahi tama ki a koe i roto i a ia: ina, ka manaaki ahau i a ia, a hei whaea ia mo nga iwi; ka puta mai nga kingi mo nga iwi i roto i a ia.

17 Na ka kupapa te kanohi o Aperahama ki raro, a ka kata ia, ka mea hoki i roto i tona ngakau, Tera ranei e whanau he tama ma te tangata kua kotahi rau nei ona tau? e whanau tamariki ranei a Hara, te wahine kua iwa tekau nei ona tau?

18 Na ka mea ake a Aperahama ki te Atua, Kia ora noa oti a Ihimaera ki tou aroaro!

19 Na ka mea te Atua, Ehara, ka whanau ta korua tama ko Hara; a me hua e koe tona ingoa ko Ihaka: ka whakapumau ano ahau i taku kawenata ki a ia, ki ona uri hoki i muri i a ia, hei kawenata mau tonu.

20 Ko Ihimaera ia, na, kua whakarongo ahau ki a koe; nana, kua oti ia te manaaki e ahau, a ka meinga ia e ahau kia hua, kia tino nui rawa hoki; ka whanau ana tamariki kotahi tekau ma rua he ariki, a ka meinga ia e ahau hei iwi nui.

21 Ka whakapumautia ia e ahau taku kawenata ki a Ihaka, ka whanau nei i a korua ko Hara a te taima e rite ana ki tenei o te tau e haere ake nei.

22 A ka mutu tana korero ki a ia, a mawehe atu ana te Atua i a Aperahama ki runga.

23 Katahi ka tongo a Aperahama i a Ihimaera i tana tama, ratou ko nga mea katoa i whanau i roto i tona whare, me nga mea katoa i hokona ki tana moni, nga tane katoa i roto i nga tangata o te whare o Aperahama; a kotia ana e ia to ratou kiri matamat a i taua ra pu ano, i pera me ta te Atua i korero ai ki a ia.

24 Na e iwa tekau ma iwa nga tau o Aperahama i te kotinga o tona kiri matamata.

25 Kotahi tekau ma toru hoki nga tau o tana tama o Ihimaera i te kotinga o tona kiri matamata.

26 No taua rangi pu ano i kotia ai a Aperahama, raua ko tana tama, ko Ihimaera.

27 A i kotia ngatahitia me ia nga tangata katoa o tona whare, nga mea i whanau i roto i te whare, me nga mea i hokona ki te moni i te tangata iwi ke.

Genesis 17 New International Version (NIV)

The Covenant of Circumcision

17 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, “I am God Almighty[a]; walk before me faithfully and be blameless. Then I will make my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers.”

Abram fell facedown, and God said to him, “As for me, this is my covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations. No longer will you be called Abram[b]; your name will be Abraham,[c] for I have made you a father of many nations. I will make you very fruitful; I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you. I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you. The whole land of Canaan, where you now reside as a foreigner, I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God.

Then God said to Abraham, “As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you for the generations to come. 10 This is my covenant with you and your descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep: Every male among you shall be circumcised. 11 You are to undergo circumcision, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and you. 12 For the generations to come every male among you who is eight days old must be circumcised, including those born in your household or bought with money from a foreigner—those who are not your offspring. 13 Whether born in your household or bought with your money, they must be circumcised. My covenant in your flesh is to be an everlasting covenant. 14 Any uncircumcised male, who has not been circumcised in the flesh, will be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant.

15 God also said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you are no longer to call her Sarai; her name will be Sarah. 16 I will bless her and will surely give you a son by her. I will bless her so that she will be the mother of nations; kings of peoples will come from her.”

17 Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, “Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?” 18 And Abraham said to God, “If only Ishmael might live under your blessing!”

19 Then God said, “Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac.[d] I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him. 20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation. 21 But my covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you by this time next year.” 22 When he had finished speaking with Abraham, God went up from him.

23 On that very day Abraham took his son Ishmael and all those born in his household or bought with his money, every male in his household, and circumcised them, as God told him. 24 Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he was circumcised, 25 and his son Ishmael was thirteen; 26 Abraham and his son Ishmael were both circumcised on that very day. 27 And every male in Abraham’s household, including those born in his household or bought from a foreigner, was circumcised with him.
