NOA abya awithe omukali n’abaghalha basathu. Amena w’abaghalha biwe babya Semu, Hamu na Yafeti. Kandi buli mughuma w’okw’ibo abya awithe omukali. Neryo omw’ihiika lya Noa mwabya abandu munani.

Hathya Nyamuhanga mwanza Noa akole ekindu eky’embaghane. Mwamubwira athi ahimbe obwathu bunene. Obwathu buno bwabya bunene ng’emeri, aliriryo ibukabya nga busosire esanduko enene, kandi enyiri. Nyamuhanga mwamubwira athi, ‘Kolhabu mwa kayina isathu eyighulhu, kandi wuhire mubwo mw’ebisenge.’ Ebisenge byabya bya Noa n’erihiika liwe, ebisoro, n’ebyalya eby’abosi bangayithaghire.

Nyamuhanga kandi mwabwira Noa ahimbe obwathu bwa ndeke indi amaghetse syalhabe mubwo. Nyamuhanga mwabugha: ‘Ngaya thuma eribogha linene ly’amaghetse n’erithoghothya ekihugho kyosi. Obuli mundu oyuthe omwa bwathu akendisya holha.’

Noa n’abaghalha biwe mubowa Yehova kandi batsuka erihimba. Aliriryo abandi bandu mubakwama eky’eriseka. Mubalholya embere n’eribya babi. Sihabya na mughuma oyu w’ikiriraya Noa omughulhu abwirabo ekya Nyamuhanga akayakolha.

Mukyathwalha buthuku buli erihimba obwathu kusangwa bwabya bunene kutsibu. Erighunzerera, enyuma w’ebirimo bingi, mubwahwa. Neryo Nyamuhanga mwabwira Noa eriretha okwa muhanda w’ebisoro omwa bwathu. Nyamuhanga mwabugha athi bingiraye bibiri-bibiri okwa buli bisoro ebyosi, eky’obulhume n’eky’obukali. Aliriryo okwa wundi muhanda w’ebisoro, Nyamuhanga mwabwira Noa eringirya birinda-birinda. Nyamuhanga kandi mwabwira Noa eringirya obuli muhanda wosi owa buli binyonyi. Noa mwakolha nga Nyamuhanga kw’anabugha.

Enyuma waho, Noa n’erihiika liwe nabo mubingira omw’obwathu. Neryo Nyamuhanga mwakyinga olhuyi. Bane omwa kathi, Noa n’erihiika liwe mubalindirira. Thayiri lengekania iwune nabo omwa bwathu, mukalindirira. Amaghetse anemendi bogha nga Nyamuhanga kw’abugha?
