Chapter 12 - Genesis

1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:1 Sinabi nga ng Panginoon kay Abram, Umalis ka sa iyong lupain, at sa iyong mga kamaganak, at sa bahay ng iyong ama, na ikaw ay pasa lupaing ituturo ko sa iyo:
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:2 At gagawin kitang isang malaking bansa, at ikaw ay aking pagpapalain, at padadakilain ko ang iyong pangalan; at ikaw ay maging isang kapalaran:
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.3 At pagpapalain ko ang mga magpapala sa iyo, at susumpain ko ang mga susumpa sa iyo: at pagpapalain sa iyo ang lahat ng angkan sa lupa.
4 So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.4 Kaya't yumaon si Abram, ayon sa sinalita sa kaniya ng Panginoon; at si Lot ay sumama sa kaniya: at si Abram ay may pitong pu't limang taon, nang umalis sa Haran.
5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.5 Isinama ni Abram si Sarai na kaniyang asawa, at si Lot na anak ng kaniyang kapatid, at ang lahat ng pag-aaring kanilang natipon at ang mga taong kanilang nakuha sa Haran; at nagsialis upang pasa lupain ng Canaan; at dumating sa lupain ng Canaan.
6 And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.6 At naglakbay sa lupain si Abram hanggang sa dako ng Sichem, hanggang sa punong encina ng More. At noo'y nasa lupaing yaon ang Cananeo,
7 And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.7 At napakita ang Panginoon kay Abram, at nagsabi, Sa iyong lahi ay ibibigay ko ang lupaing ito: at siya'y nagtayo roon ng isang dambana sa Panginoon na napakita sa kaniya.
8 And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he builded an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD.8 At mula roon ay lumipat siya sa bundok na nasa silanganan ng Bethel, at doon niya itinayo ang kaniyang tolda, na nasa kalunuran ang Bethel, at nasa silanganan ang Hai: at siya'y nagtayo roon ng dambana sa Panginoon, at sinambitla ang pangalan ng Panginoon.
9 And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.9 At si Abram ay naglakbay na nagtuloy sa dakong Timugan.
10 And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land.10 At nagkagutom sa lupaing yaon: at bumaba si Abram na nasok sa Egipto, upang manirahan doon; sapagka't mahigpit ang kagutom sa lupain.
11 And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon:11 At nangyari, nang siya'y malapit nang papasok sa Egipto, ay sinabi niya kay Sarai na kaniyang asawa, Narito, ngayon, talastas kong ikaw ay magandang babae sa tingin:
12 Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive.12 At mangyayari na pag makikita ka ng mga Egipcio, ay kanilang sasabihin, Ito'y kaniyang asawa; at ako'y kanilang papatayin, datapuwa't kanilang ililigtas kang buhay.
13 Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.13 Isinasamo ko sa iyo, na sabihin mong ikaw ay aking kapatid, upang ako'y mapabuti dahil sa iyo, at upang ang kaluluwa ko'y mabuhay dahil sa iyo.
14 And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.14 At nangyari, nang pumasok si Abram sa Egipto, nakita ng mga Egipcio, na ang babae ay napakaganda.
15 The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.15 At nakita siya ng mga prinsipe ni Faraon, at kanilang pinuri siya kay Faraon: at dinala ang babae sa bahay ni Faraon.
16 And he entreated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she asses, and camels.16 At pinagpakitaan nito ng magandang loob si Abram dahil sa kaniya: at nagkaroon si Abram ng mga tupa, at ng mga baka, at ng mga asno, at ng mga aliping lalake at mga alilang babae, at ng mga asna, at ng mga kamelyo,
17 And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram's wife.17 At sinalot ng Panginoon si Faraon at ang kaniyang sangbahayan, ng malaking pagsalot dahil kay Sarai na asawa ni Abram.
18 And Pharaoh called Abram, and said, What is this that thou hast done unto me? why didst thou not tell me that she was thy wife?18 At tinawag ni Faraon si Abram, at sinabi, Ano itong ginawa mo sa akin? Bakit hindi mo ipinahayag sa akin na siya'y iyong asawa?
19 Why saidst thou, She is my sister? so I might have taken her to me to wife: now therefore behold thy wife, take her, and go thy way.19 Bakit sinabi mong siya'y aking kapatid? na ano pa't siya'y aking kinuha upang maging asawa: ngayon nga'y nariyan ang iyong asawa; siya'y kunin mo at yumaon ka.
20 And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him: and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.20 At nagbilin si Faraon sa mga tao tungkol sa kaniya: at siya'y kanilang inihatid sa daan, at ang kaniyang asawa, at ang lahat ng kaniyang pag-aari.
