Jenèz 17Haitian Creole Version (HCV)

17 ¶ Le Abram rive sou katrevendisnevan laj, Seyè a parèt devan l', li di l' konsa. Mwen se Bondye ki gen tout pouvwa a. Se pou ou toujou fè sa m' di ou fè. Se pou ou mennen yon vi san repwòch.

M'ap pase yon kontra avè ou, m'ap ba ou anpil anpil pitit pitit.

Lè sa a, Abram mete ajenou, li bese tèt li jouk atè. Bondye pale avè l' ankò, li di l'.

¶ -Men kontra m'ap pase avè ou la. W'ap zansèt moun anpil nasyon.

Yo p'ap rele ou Abram ankò. Men y'a rele ou Abraram, paske m'ap fè ou tounen zansèt moun anpil nasyon.

M'ap ba ou anpil anpil pitit pitit. Y'ap tounen kantite nasyon. Anpil wa ap soti nan ras ou.

¶ M'ap kenbe kontra m' lan avè ou, avèk tout ras ou. De pitit an pitit, se va yon kontra k'ap la pou tout tan. Se mwen k'ap Bondye ou, se mwen k'ap Bondye pitit pitit ou yo tou.

Ou wè tè kote ou rete tankou moun vini koulye a? Mwen gen pou m' ba ou l' ansanm ak tout pitit pitit ou yo. tout peyi Kanaran an ap rele ou pa ou pou tout tan. Wi, se mwen menm k'ap Bondye yo tout.

Bondye di Abraram. Men ou menm ansanm ak tout ras ou, de pitit an pitit, se pou nou dakò pou nou kenbe kontra a avèk mwen.

10 Men sa pou ou menm ansanm ak tout pitit ou yo pou nou dakò fè: se pou tout gason nan mitan nou sikonsi.

11 Depi koulye a, se pou nou sikonsi tout gason. Se pou sa sèvi yon siy pou moutre gen yon kontra ki pase ant nou menm avè m'.

12 Se pou nou sikonsi tout gason wit jou apre yo fèt, li te mèt pitit moun lakay la, osinon pitit moun lòt nasyon ou pran pou travay lakay ou.

13 Wi, se pou yo tout yo sikonsi, kit yo fèt lakay ou, kit yo fèt nan peyi etranje. Se va yon mak nan kò nou pou fè wè kontra mwen pase avèk nou an, se yon kontra ki la pou tout tan.

14 Si yon gason pa sikonsi, se pou yo disparèt li nan ras la, paske li pa t' kenbe kontra mwen fè ak nou an.

15 ¶ Apre sa, Bondye di Abraram. Sarayi, madanm ou, p'ap rele Sarayi ankò. Men depi jòdi a y'a rele l' Sara.

16 M'ap beni madanm ou, m'ap fè l' ba ou yon pitit gason. M'ap beni l', m'ap fè l' tounen manman moun anpil nasyon. Anpil nan pitit pitit li yo va wa.

17 Abraram mete ajenou, li bese tèt li jouk atè. Men, li tonbe ri lè l' chonje jan l' fin granmoun. Li t'ap di nan kè l'. Eske yon nonm ki gen santan ka fè pitit ankò? Eske Sara, yon fanm ki gen katrevendizan, ka vin ansent?

18 Li di Bondye. Tanpri, beni Izmayèl. Pa kite l' mouri!

19 Men Bondye di l'. Non, se Sara madanm ou, ki gen pou fè yon pitit gason pou ou. W'a rele l' Izarak. M'ap kenbe kontra mwen avèk li, ansanm ak pitit pitit li yo. Pa bliye. Se va yon kontra k'ap la pou tout tan.

20 Ou mande m' pou m' pwoteje Izmayèl pou ou! M'ap fè l' pou ou! M'ap beni l', m'ap ba li anpil pitit ak anpil pitit pitit. Gen douz chèf k'ap soti nan fanmi li. M'ap fè pitit li yo tounen yon gwo nasyon.

21 Men, m'ap kenbe kontra mwen an avèk Izarak, pitit gason Sara pral fè pou ou a. L'ap fèt lanne k'ap vini an, lè konsa.

22 Lè Bondye fin pale avèk Abraram, li kite l', li moute nan syèl.

23 ¶ Jou sa a Abraram pran Izmayèl, pitit gason li an, ak tout gason ki t'ap travay lakay li, kit yo te fèt nan kay la, kit se moun lòt nasyon li te pran pou sèvi l', li sikonsi yo tout menm jou a, jan Bondye te pase l' lòd la.

24 Abraram poutèt pa l' te gen katrevendiznèvan lè l' te sikonsi.

25 Izmayèl, pitit gason l' lan, te gen trèzan lè l' te sikonsi.

26 Yo tout de, yo sikonsi yo menm jou

27 ansanm ak tout domestik ki te lakay li, kit yo te fèt la, kit se achte li te achte yo nan men moun lòt nasyon yo.

Genesis 17New 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.
