← Genesis 1   Genesis 3 →

1 Agqitywa ke amazulu nehlabathi, nawo wonke umkhosi wezo zinto.

2 Wawugqiba ke uThixo ngomhla wesixhenxe umsebenzi wakhe awawenzayo; waphumla ngomhla wesixhenxe kuwo wonke umsebenzi wakhe awawenzayo.

3 Wawusikelela uThixo umhla wesixhenxe, wawungcwalisa; ngokuba waphumla ngawo kuwo wonke umsebenzi wakhe awawudalayo uThixo, wawenza.

4 Yiyo le ke inzala yamazulu nehlabathi ekudalweni kwezo zinto, mini wenza uYehova uThixo ihlabathi namazulu,

5 onke amatyholo asendle engekaveli emhlabeni, nayo yonke imifuno yasendle ingekantshuli; kuba uYehova uThixo ebengekanisi mvula emhlabeni; kwaye kungekho mntu wokuwusebenza umhlaba.

6 Kwaye kunyuka inkungu iphuma ehlabathini, yawunyakamisa wonke umhlaba.

7 UYehova uThixo wambumba umntu ngothuli lwasemhlabeni, waphefumlela emathatheni akhe impefumlo yobomi; umntu ke waba ngumphefumlo ophilileyo.

8 UYehova uThixo watyala umyezo e-Eden ngasempumalanga; wambeka khona umntu abembumbile.

9 UYehova uThixo wantshulisa emhlabeni yonke imithi enqwenelekayo ngokukhangeleka, nelungele ukudliwa; nomthi wobomi emyezweni phakathi, nomthi wokwazi okulungileyo nokubi.

10 Kwaphuma umlambo e-Eden wokuwunyakamisa umyezo; wahluka apho, waba ziimbaxa ezine.

11 Igama lowokuqala yiPishon; nguwo lowo ujikeleze lonke ilizwe laseHavila, apho ikhona igolide.

12 Igolide yelo lizwe intle, ikhona ibhedolaki nelitye lebherilo.

13 Igama lowesibini umlambo yiGihon; nguwo lowo ujikeleze lonke ilizwe lakwaKushi.

14 Igama lowesithathu umlambo yiHidekele; nguwo lowo uya phambi kwelakwa-Asiriya. Owesine umlambo ngumEfrati.

15 UYehova uThixo wamthabatha umntu, wambeka emyezweni we-Eden, ukuba awusebenze, awugcine.

16 UYehova uThixo wamwisela umthetho umntu, esithi, Yonke imithi yomyezo ungayidla uyidle;

17 ke wona umthi wokwazi okulungileyo nokubi uze ungawudli; kuba mhlana uthe wawudla, uya kufa.

18 Wathi uYehova uThixo, Akulungile ukuba umntu abe yedwa, ndiya kumenzela umncedi onguwabo.

19 UYehova uThixo wabumba ngomhlaba zonke izinto eziphilileyo zasendle, nazo zonke iintaka zezulu, wazisa kuye uAdam ukubona ukuba wothini na ukuzibiza, ukuze oko azibize ngako uAdam zonke izinto eziphilileyo, ibe ligama lazo elo.

20 Wazithiya amagama uAdam zonke izinto ezizitho zine, neentaka zasezulwini, nazo zonke izinto eziphilileyo zasendle; ke uAdam akafunyanelwanga mncedi unguwabo.

21 UYehova uThixo wawisa ubuthongo obukhulu phezu koAdam, walala. Wathabatha lwalunye ezimbanjeni zakhe, wavingca ngenyama esikhundleni salo.

22 UYehova uThixo walwakha ubambo abeluthabathe kuAdam, lwaba ngumfazi; wamzisa kuAdam.

23 Wathi uAdam, Eli ke ngoku lithambo lasemathanjeni am, yinyama yasenyameni yam; lo yena ukubizwa kothiwa ngumfazi, ngokuba ethatyathwe endodeni.

24 Ngenxa yoko indoda yomshiya uyise nonina, inamathele kumkayo, babe nyama-nye ke.

25 Baye bobabini behamba ze, umntu lowo nomkakhe, bengenazintloni.
