11  Icyo gihe abantu bose bo ku isi bavugaga ururimi rumwe kandi bakoresha amagambo amwe.  Abantu bakomeje kugenda berekeza iburasirazuba, babona ikibaya mu gihugu cy’i Shinari* maze barahatura.  Bamwe babwira abandi bati: “Nimuze tubumbe amatafari tuyatwike.” Nuko bakoresha amatafari aho gukoresha amabuye, bayafatanyisha godoro.*  Hanyuma baravuga bati: “Nimuze twiyubakire umujyi, twubake n’umunara ugera ku ijuru maze tube ibyamamare. Bizatuma tudatatana ngo dukwire ku isi hose.”  Yehova yitegereza abantu kandi abona umujyi n’umunara bari bubatse.  Hanyuma Yehova aravuga ati: “Aba bantu bunze ubumwe kandi bose bavuga ururimi rumwe, none dore ibyo batangiye gukora. Ubu nta kintu baziyemeza gukora ngo bananirwe kukigeraho.  Reka noneho dutume bavuga indimi zitandukanye* kugira ngo buri muntu atumva ibyo undi avuga.”  Nuko Yehova arabatatanya bakwira ku isi hose, amaherezo bareka kubaka uwo mujyi.  Ni yo mpamvu uwo mujyi wiswe Babeli,* kuko icyo gihe ari bwo Yehova yatumye abantu bavuga indimi zitandukanye. Kandi ni ho Yehova yabatatanyirije bakwira ku isi hose. 10  Iyi ni inkuru ivuga iby’amateka ya Shemu. Shemu yari afite imyaka 100 igihe yabyaraga Arupakisadi, hakaba hari hashize imyaka ibiri umwuzure ubaye. 11  Shemu amaze kubyara Arupakisadi yabayeho indi myaka 500. Muri icyo gihe yabyaye abahungu n’abakobwa. 12  Igihe Arupakisadi yari afite imyaka 35, yabyaye Shela. 13  Arupakisadi amaze kubyara Shela, yabayeho indi myaka 403. Muri icyo gihe yabyaye abahungu n’abakobwa. 14  Igihe Shela yari afite imyaka 30 yabyaye Eberi. 15  Shela amaze kubyara Eberi, yabayeho indi myaka 403. Muri icyo gihe yabyaye abahungu n’abakobwa. 16  Igihe Eberi yari afite imyaka 34, yabyaye Pelegi. 17  Eberi amaze kubyara Pelegi yabayeho indi myaka 430. Muri icyo gihe yabyaye abahungu n’abakobwa. 18  Igihe Pelegi yari afite imyaka 30, yabyaye Rewu. 19  Pelegi amaze kubyara Rewu, yabayeho indi myaka 209. Muri icyo gihe yabyaye abahungu n’abakobwa. 20  Igihe Rewu yari afite imyaka 32, yabyaye Serugi. 21  Rewu amaze kubyara Serugi, yabayeho indi myaka 207. Muri icyo gihe yabyaye abahungu n’abakobwa. 22  Igihe Serugi yari afite imyaka 30, yabyaye Nahori. 23  Serugi amaze kubyara Nahori, yabayeho indi myaka 200.

Muri icyo gihe yabyaye abahungu n’abakobwa. 26  Igihe Tera yari afite imyaka 70, yabyaye Aburamu, Nahori na Harani. 27  Iyi ni inkuru ivuga iby’amateka ya Tera. Tera yabyaye Aburamu, Nahori na Harani. Harani na we yabyaye Loti. 28  Nyuma yaho Harani yaje gupfira mu gihugu yavukiyemo cya Uri y’Abakaludaya. Icyo gihe, papa we Tera yari akiriho. 29  Aburamu na Nahori bashatse abagore. Umugore wa Aburamu yitwaga Sarayi, naho umugore wa Nahori akitwa Miluka, umukobwa wa Harani. Harani yari papa wa Miluka na Yisika. 30  Ariko Sarayi nta mwana yagiraga kuko atabyaraga. 31  Hanyuma Tera afata umuhungu we Aburamu, afata n’umwuzukuru we Loti, akaba yari umuhungu wa Harani. Afata na Sarayi umugore w’umuhungu we Aburamu. Bava muri Uri y’Abakaludaya bajya mu gihugu cy’i Kanani, hanyuma baza kugera i Harani baturayo. 32  Imyaka yose Tera yabayeho ni 205 hanyuma apfira i Harani.
