Babel

The Tower of Babel (Genesis 11: 1-9)

Māori

  1. Na kotahi tonu te reo o te whenua katoa, rite tonu ano nga korero.
  2. A, i a ratou e haere ana whaka te rawhiti, na ka kite ratou i tetahi mania i te whenua o Hinara; a noho ana ratou i reira.
  3. Na ka mea ratou ki tona hoa, ki tona hoa, Tena, tatou ka hanga pereki, me ata tahu marire ano hoki. Na ka meinga e ratou he pereki hei kohatu, he uku hoki ta ratou moata.
  4. Na ka mea ratou, Tena, tatou ka hanga i tetahi pa me tetahi pourewa, a kia tutuki a runga ki te rangi, kia whai ingoa ai tatou; kei marara noa atu tatou ki te mata o te whenua katoa.
  5. Na ka heke iho a Ihowa kia kite i te pa me te pourewa, i hanga nei e nga tama a te tangata.
  6. A ka mea a Ihowa, Nana, kotahi tonu te iwi nei, kotahi ano hoki to ratou reo; a ka timataia nei tenei mahi e ratou: e kore ano ratou e taea te pupuri mai i tetahi mea, e whakaaro ana ratou kia mahia.
  7. Tena, tatou ka heke atu, ka whakapoauau i o ratou reo i reira, kia kore ai ratou e matau, ia tangata, ia tangata ki te reo o tona hoa.
  8. Na whakamararatia atu ana ratou i reira e Ihowa ki runga ki te mata o te whenua katoa: a mahue ake i a ratou te hanga i te pa.
  9. Na kona i huaina ai to reira ingoa ko Papera; no te mea i whakapoauautia e Ihowa i reira te reo o te whenua katoa: no reira ano hoki te whakamararatanga a Ihowa i a ratou ki te mata o te whenua katoa.
