Chapter 24 - Genesis

1 And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things.1 At si Abraham ay matanda na, at lipas na sa panahon: at pinagpala ng Panginoon si Abraham sa lahat ng mga bagay.
2 And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh:2 At sinabi ni Abraham sa kaniyang alilang katiwala, sa pinakamatanda sa kaniyang bahay na namamahala ng lahat niyang tinatangkilik: Ipinamamanhik ko sa iyo na ilagay mo ang iyong kamay sa ilalim ng aking hita:
3 And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell:3 At ikaw ay aking pasusumpain, alangalang sa Panginoon sa Dios ng langit at Dios ng lupa, na hindi mo papag-aasawahin ang aking anak sa mga anak ng mga Cananeo na siyang aking pinakikitahanan:
4 But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac.4 Kundi ikaw ay paroroon sa aking lupain, at sa aking kamaganakan, at papag-aasawahin mo roon ang aking anak na si Isaac.
5 And the servant said unto him, Peradventure the woman will not be willing to follow me unto this land: must I needs bring thy son again unto the land from whence thou camest?5 At sinabi sa kaniya ng lingkod, Sakaling hindi iibigin ng babae na sumama sa akin sa lupaing ito: dapat ko bang ibalik ang anak mo sa lupaing pinanggalingan mo?
6 And Abraham said unto him, Beware thou that thou bring not my son thither again.6 At sinabi sa kaniya ni Abraham, Ingatan mong huwag ibalik doon ang aking anak.
7 The LORD God of heaven, which took me from my father's house, and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that sware unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land; he shall send his angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence.7 Ang Panginoon, ang Dios ng langit, na kumuha sa akin sa bahay ng aking ama, at sa lupaing aking tinubuan, at sa akin ay nagsalita, at sa akin ay sumumpa, na nagsasabi, Sa iyong binhi, ibibigay ko ang lupaing ito: ay magsusugo siya ng kaniyang anghel sa unahan mo, at papag-aasawahin mo roon ang aking anak.
8 And if the woman will not be willing to follow thee, then thou shalt be clear from this my oath: only bring not my son thither again.8 At kung ang babae ay ayaw sumama sa iyo, ay maliligtas ka rito sa aking sumpa; huwag mo lamang pabalikin ang aking anak doon.
9 And the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master, and sware to him concerning that matter.9 At inilagay ng alilang katiwala ang kaniyang kamay sa ilalim ng hita ni Abraham na kaniyang panginoon, at sumumpa sa kaniya tungkol sa bagay na ito.
10 And the servant took ten camels of the camels of his master, and departed; for all the goods of his master were in his hand: and he arose, and went to Mesopotamia, unto the city of Nahor.10 At kumuha ang alilang katiwala ng sangpung kamelyo sa mga kamelyo ng kaniyang panginoon, at yumaon; na dala ang pinakamabuti sa lahat ng pag-aari ng kaniyang panginoon: at tumindig at napasa Mesopotamia, sa bayan ni Nachor.
11 And he made his camels to kneel down without the city by a well of water at the time of the evening, even the time that women go out to draw water.11 At kaniyang pinaluhod ang mga kamelyo sa labas ng bayan, sa tabi ng balon ng tubig, ng dakong palubog na ang araw, na kapanahunan nang paglabas ng mga babae upang umigib ng tubig.
12 And he said, O LORD God of my master Abraham, I pray thee, send me good speed this day, and shew kindness unto my master Abraham.12 At sinabi, Oh Panginoon, Dios ng aking panginoong si Abraham, ipinamamanhik ko sa iyong pagkalooban mo ako ng mabuting kapalaran ngayon, at ikaw ay magmagandang loob sa aking panginoong kay Abraham.
13 Behold, I stand here by the well of water; and the daughters of the men of the city come out to draw water:13 Narito, ako'y nakatayo sa tabi ng bukal ng tubig: at ang mga anak na babae ng mga tao sa bayan, ay nagsilabas upang umigib ng tubig:
14 And let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I shall say, Let down thy pitcher, I pray thee, that I may drink; and she shall say, Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: let the same be she that thou hast appointed for thy servant Isaac; and thereby shall I know that thou hast shewed kindness unto my master.14 At mangyari nga na ang dalagang aking pagsabihan, Ibaba mo, isinasamo ko sa iyo, ang iyong banga upang ako'y uminom; at siya'y magsabi, Uminom ka, at paiinumin ko pati ng iyong mga kamelyo: maging siyang iyong itinalaga sa iyong lingkod na kay Isaac: at sa ganito ay malalaman kong nagmagandang loob ka sa aking panginoon.
15 And it came to pass, before he had done speaking, that, behold, Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, with her pitcher upon her shoulder.15 At nangyari, na bago natapos ang pananalita niya, ay narito si Rebeca na ipinanganak kay Bethuel, na anak ni Milca, na asawa ni Nachor na kapatid ni Abraham na lumalabas na pasan ang kaniyang banga sa kaniyang balikat.
16 And the damsel was very fair to look upon, a virgin, neither had any man known her: and she went down to the well, and filled her pitcher, and came up.16 At ang babae ay may magandang anyo, dalaga, na hindi pa nasisipingan ng lalake: at lumusong sa bukal, at pinuno ang kaniyang banga, at umahon.
17 And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Let me, I pray thee, drink a little water of thy pitcher.17 At tumakbong sinalubong siya ng alilang katiwala na sinabi, Makikiinom ako ng kaunting tubig sa iyong banga.
18 And she said, Drink, my lord: and she hasted, and let down her pitcher upon her hand, and gave him drink.18 At sinabi niya, Uminom ka, panginoon ko: at nagmadaling ibinaba ang banga sa kaniyang kamay, at pinainom siya.
19 And when she had done giving him drink, she said, I will draw water for thy camels also, until they have done drinking.19 At pagkatapos na kaniyang mapainom, ay sinabi, Iyiigib ko naman ang iyong mga kamelyo, hanggang sa makainom na lahat.
20 And she hasted, and emptied her pitcher into the trough, and ran again unto the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels.20 At ibinuhos na dalidali ang kaniyang banga sa inuman, at tumakbong muli sa balon upang umigib at iniigib ang lahat niyang kamelyo.
21 And the man wondering at her held his peace, to wit whether the LORD had made his journey prosperous or not.21 At siya'y tinitigan ng lalake; na hindi umiimik, upang maalaman kung pinagpala ng Panginoon ang kaniyang paglalakbay o hindi.
22 And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the man took a golden earring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets for her hands of ten shekels weight of gold;22 At nangyari, nang makainom ang mga kamelyo, na kumuha ang lalake ng isang singsing na ginto, na may kalahating siklo sa timbang, at dalawang pulsera upang ilagay sa kaniyang mga kamay, na may timbang na sangpung siklong ginto;
23 And said, Whose daughter art thou? tell me, I pray thee: is there room in thy father's house for us to lodge in?23 At sinabi, Kaninong anak ka? sabihin mo sa akin, ipinamamanhik ko sa iyo. May lugar ba sa bahay ng iyong ama na aming matutuluyan?
24 And she said unto him, I am the daughter of Bethuel the son of Milcah, which she bare unto Nahor.24 At sinabi niya sa kaniya, Anak ako ni Bethuel, na anak ni Milca, na ipinanganak niya kay Nahor.
25 She said moreover unto him, We have both straw and provender enough, and room to lodge in.25 Sinabi rin niya sa kaniya, Mayroon din naman kaming saganang dayami at pagkain sa hayop, at dakong matutuluyan.
26 And the man bowed down his head, and worshipped the LORD.26 At lumuhod ang lalake at sumamba sa Panginoon.
27 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of my master Abraham, who hath not left destitute my master of his mercy and his truth: I being in the way, the LORD led me to the house of my master's brethren.27 At siya'y nagsabi, Purihin ang Panginoon, ang Dios ng aking panginoong si Abraham, na hindi inilayo ang kaniyang habag at ang kaniyang pagtatapat, sa aking panginoon: tungkol sa akin, ay pinatnugutan ako ng Panginoon sa daan hanggang sa bahay ng mga kapatid ng aking panginoon.
28 And the damsel ran, and told them of her mother's house these things.28 At tumakbo ang dalaga at isinaysay sa sangbahayan ng kaniyang ina ang ayon sa mga salitang ito.
29 And Rebekah had a brother, and his name was Laban: and Laban ran out unto the man, unto the well.29 At mayroon si Rebeca na isang kapatid na nagngangalang Laban: at tinakbo ni Laban ang lalake sa labas, sa bukal.
30 And it came to pass, when he saw the earring and bracelets upon his sister's hands, and when he heard the words of Rebekah his sister, saying, Thus spake the man unto me; that he came unto the man; and, behold, he stood by the camels at the well.30 At nangyari, pagkakita ng singsing, at ng mga pulsera sa mga kamay ng kaniyang kapatid, at pagkarinig ng mga salita ni Rebeca na kaniyang kapatid, na sinasabi, Gayon sinalita sa akin ng lalake; na naparoon siya sa lalake; at narito, ito'y nakatayo sa siping ng mga kamelyo, sa bukal.
31 And he said, Come in, thou blessed of the LORD; wherefore standest thou without? for I have prepared the house, and room for the camels.31 At sinabi niya, Pumasok ka, pinagpala ng Panginoon; bakit ka nakatayo sa labas? sapagka't inihanda ko ang bahay, at ang dako ng mga kamelyo.
32 And the man came into the house: and he ungirded his camels, and gave straw and provender for the camels, and water to wash his feet, and the men's feet that were with him.32 At pumasok ang lalake sa bahay, at kinalagan ang mga kamelyo; at binigyan ni Laban ng dayami at pagkain ang mga kamelyo, at ng tubig upang ipaghugas ng kaniyang mga paa, at ng mga paa ng mga taong kasama niya.
33 And there was set meat before him to eat: but he said, I will not eat, until I have told mine errand. And he said, Speak on.33 At siya'y hinainan nila ng pagkain: datapuwa't kaniyang sinabi, Hindi ako kakain hanggang hindi ko nasasabi ang aking sadya. At sinabi ni Laban, Magsalita ka.
34 And he said, I am Abraham's servant.34 At kaniyang sinabi, Alilang katiwala ako ni Abraham.
35 And the LORD hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses.35 At pinagpalang mainam ng Panginoon ang aking panginoon; at siya'y naging dakila: at siya'y binigyan ng kawan at bakahan, at ng pilak at ng ginto, at ng mga aliping lalake, at babae, at ng mga kamelyo, at ng mga asno.
36 And Sarah my master's wife bare a son to my master when she was old: and unto him hath he given all that he hath.36 At si Sara na asawa ng aking panginoon, ay nagkaanak ng lalake sa aking panginoon, nang siya'y matanda na: at siyang pinagbigyan ni Abraham ng kaniyang lahat na inaari.
37 And my master made me swear, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife to my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell:37 At pinapanumpa ako ng aking panginoon, na sinasabi, Huwag mong papag-aasawahin ang aking anak sa mga anak na babae ng mga Cananeo na siyang lupaing aking tinatahanan:
38 But thou shalt go unto my father's house, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son.38 Kundi paroroon ka sa bahay ng aking ama at sa aking kamaganakan, at papag-aasawahin mo roon ang aking anak.
39 And I said unto my master, Peradventure the woman will not follow me.39 At sinabi ko sa aking panginoon, Sakaling hindi iibigin ng babaing sumama sa akin.
40 And he said unto me, The LORD, before whom I walk, will send his angel with thee, and prosper thy way; and thou shalt take a wife for my son of my kindred, and of my father's house:40 At kaniyang sinabi sa akin, Ang Panginoon na sa harap niya'y lumalakad ako, ay susuguin niyang kasama mo ang kaniyang anghel, at kaniyang pagpapalain ang iyong lakad, at papag-aasawahin mo ang aking anak sa aking kamaganakan, at sa angkan ng aking ama:
41 Then shalt thou be clear from this my oath, when thou comest to my kindred; and if they give not thee one, thou shalt be clear from my oath.41 Kung magkagayo'y makakakawala ka sa aking sumpa, pagka ikaw ay dumating sa aking kamaganakan; at kung hindi nila ibigay sa iyo, ay makakakawala ka sa aking sumpa.
42 And I came this day unto the well, and said, O LORD God of my master Abraham, if now thou do prosper my way which I go:42 At dumating ako ng araw na ito, sa bukal, at aking sinabi, Oh Panginoon, na Dios ng aking panginoong si Abraham, kung ngayo'y pinagpapala mo ang aking lakad na nilalakad ko:
43 Behold, I stand by the well of water; and it shall come to pass, that when the virgin cometh forth to draw water, and I say to her, Give me, I pray thee, a little water of thy pitcher to drink;43 Narito, nakatayo ako sa tabi ng bukal ng tubig; at mangyari, na ang dalagang lumabas na umigib na aking pagsasabihan, Makikiinom ako sa iyo ng kaunting tubig sa iyong banga;
44 And she say to me, Both drink thou, and I will also draw for thy camels: let the same be the woman whom the LORD hath appointed out for my master's son.44 At siya'y magsasabi sa akin, Uminom ka, at iyigib ko pati ng iyong mga kamelyo: ay siyang maging babaing itinalaga ng Panginoon sa anak ng aking panginoon.
45 And before I had done speaking in mine heart, behold, Rebekah came forth with her pitcher on her shoulder; and she went down unto the well, and drew water: and I said unto her, Let me drink, I pray thee.45 At bago ko nasalita sa sarili, narito si Rebeca, na lumalabas na pasan ang kaniyang banga sa kaniyang balikat; at lumusong sa bukal at umigib: at aking sinabi sa kaniya, Makikiinom ako sa iyo.
46 And she made haste, and let down her pitcher from her shoulder, and said, Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: so I drank, and she made the camels drink also.46 At dalidali niyang ibinaba ang kaniyang banga sa kaniyang balikat, at nagsabi, Uminom ka, at paiinumin ko pati ng iyong mga kamelyo: sa gayo'y uminom ako, at pinainom niya pati ng mga kamelyo,
47 And I asked her, and said, Whose daughter art thou? And she said, The daughter of Bethuel, Nahor's son, whom Milcah bare unto him: and I put the earring upon her face, and the bracelets upon her hands.47 At siya'y aking tinanong, at aking sinabi, Kaninong anak ka? at kaniyang sinabi, Anak ako ni Bethuel, na anak ni Nachor, na ipinanganak sa kaniya ni Milca: at inilagay ko ang hikaw sa kaniyang ilong, at ang mga pulsera sa kaniyang mga kamay.
48 And I bowed down my head, and worshipped the LORD, and blessed the LORD God of my master Abraham, which had led me in the right way to take my master's brother's daughter unto his son.48 At aking iniyukod ang aking ulo, at sumamba ako sa Panginoon at pumuri sa Panginoon, na Dios ng aking panginoong si Abraham, na pumatnubay sa akin sa daang matuwid upang kunin ang anak ng kapatid ng aking panginoon, para sa kaniyang anak.
49 And now if ye will deal kindly and truly with my master, tell me: and if not, tell me; that I may turn to the right hand, or to the left.49 At ngayon, kung inyong mamagandahing loob at mamatapatin sa aking panginoon ay sabihin ninyo sa akin: at kung hindi, ay sabihin din ninyo sa akin; upang pumihit ako sa kanan o sa kaliwa.
50 Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, The thing proceedeth from the LORD: we cannot speak unto thee bad or good.50 Nang magkagayo'y sumagot si Laban at si Bethuel, at sinabi, Sa Panginoon nagmumula ito: kami ay hindi makapagsasabi sa iyo ng masama o ng mabuti.
51 Behold, Rebekah is before thee, take her, and go, and let her be thy master's son's wife, as the LORD hath spoken.51 Narito, si Rebeca ay nasa harap mo, dalhin mo, at yumaon ka, at siya'y maging asawa ng anak ng iyong panginoon, na gaya ng sinalita ng Panginoon.
52 And it came to pass, that, when Abraham's servant heard their words, he worshipped the LORD, bowing himself to the earth.52 At nangyari, na pagkarinig ng alilang katiwala ni Abraham ng kaniyang mga salita, ay nagpatirapa sa lupa sa harap ng Panginoon.
53 And the servant brought forth jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment, and gave them to Rebekah: he gave also to her brother and to her mother precious things.53 At naglabas ang alilang katiwala ng mga hiyas na pilak at mga hiyas na ginto, at mga damit, at mga ibinigay kay Rebeca: nagbigay rin siya ng mga mahalagang bagay sa kaniyang kapatid na lalake at sa kaniyang ina.
54 And they did eat and drink, he and the men that were with him, and tarried all night; and they rose up in the morning, and he said, Send me away unto my master.54 At nangagsikain at nangagsiinom siya at ang mga taong kasama niya, at doon nagparaan ng magdamag, at sila'y nagsibangon ng umaga at kaniyang sinabi, Suguin ninyo ako sa aking panginoon.
55 And her brother and her mother said, Let the damsel abide with us a few days, at the least ten; after that she shall go.55 At sinabi ng kaniyang kapatid na lalake, at ng kaniyang ina, Matira ang dalaga sa aming ilang araw, sangpung araw man lamang; pagkatapos ay paroroon siya.
56 And he said unto them, Hinder me not, seeing the LORD hath prospered my way; send me away that I may go to my master.56 At sinabi niya sa kanila, Huwag ninyo akong pigilin, yamang pinagpala ng Panginoon ang aking lakad; papagpaalamin na ninyo ako, upang ako'y umuwi sa aking panginoon.
57 And they said, We will call the damsel, and inquire at her mouth.57 At kanilang sinabi, Tatawagin namin ang dalaga at uusisain namin sa kaniyang bibig.
58 And they called Rebekah, and said unto her, Wilt thou go with this man? And she said, I will go.58 At kanila ngang tinawag si Rebeca, at kanilang sinabi sa kaniya, Sasama ka ba sa lalaking ito? At sinabi niya, Sasama ako.
59 And they sent away Rebekah their sister, and her nurse, and Abraham's servant, and his men.59 At kanilang pinapagpaalam si Rebeca na kanilang kapatid, at ang kaniyang yaya, at ang alilang katiwala ni Abraham, at ang kaniyang mga tao.
60 And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Thou art our sister, be thou the mother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed possess the gate of those which hate them.60 At kanilang binasbasan si Rebeca, at sinabi nila sa kaniya, Kapatid namin, maging ina ka nawa ng yutayuta, at kamtin ng iyong binhi ang pintuang-bayan niyaong mga napopoot sa kanila.
61 And Rebekah arose, and her damsels, and they rode upon the camels, and followed the man: and the servant took Rebekah, and went his way.61 At tumindig si Rebeca, at ang kaniyang mga abay, at nangagsisakay sa mga kamelyo, at nangagsisunod sa lalake; at dinala ng alilang katiwala si Rebeca at yumaon.
62 And Isaac came from the way of the well Lahairoi; for he dwelt in the south country.62 At si Isaac ay nanggaling sa daang Beer-lahai-roi; sapagka't siya'y natira sa lupaing Timugan.
63 And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide: and he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming.63 At lumabas si Isaac sa parang upang magmunimuni ng dakong hapon: at kaniyang itiningin ang kaniyang mga mata, at kaniyang nakita, at, narito, may dumarating na mga kamelyo.
64 And Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she lighted off the camel.64 Itiningin naman ni Rebeca ang kaniyang mga mata at nang makita niya si Isaac, ay bumaba sa kamelyo.
65 For she had said unto the servant, What man is this that walketh in the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my master: therefore she took a vail, and covered herself.65 At sinabi ni Rebeca sa alilang katiwala, Sino yaong taong naglalakad sa parang na sumasalubong sa atin? At sinabi ng alilang katiwala, Yaon ang aking panginoon: at kinuha niya ang kaniyang lambong, at siya'y nagtakip.
66 And the servant told Isaac all things that he had done.66 At isinaysay ng alilang katiwala kay Isaac ang lahat ng kaniyang ginawa.
67 And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and Isaac was comforted after his mother's death.67 At dinala siya ni Isaac sa tolda ni Sara na kaniyang ina, at ipinagsama si Rebeca, at naging kaniyang asawa: at kaniya namang sininta: at naaliw si Isaac, pagkamatay ng kaniyang ina.
