Akyiri yi, nkurɔfo kɔkaa nea na wɔreyɛ no kyerɛɛ Abimelek. 26  Ɛnna Ebed ba Gaal ne ne nuanom betwaam kɔɔ Sekem,+ na Sekem mpanyimfo de wɔn werɛ hyɛɛ ne mu. 27  Na wɔkɔɔ wuram kɔtetew wɔn bobe mfuw mu aba, na wokyĩ de yɛɛ nsã, na wodii afahyɛ. Afei wɔkɔɔ wɔn nyame fi+ kodidi nomee, na wɔdomee Abimelek. 28  Na Ebed ba Gaal bisae sɛ: “Hena ne Abimelek, na hena ne Sekem a enti ɛsɛ sɛ yɛsom no? Ɔnyɛ Yerubaal+ ba, na Sebul nyɛ ne nanmusini? Monsom Sekem papa Hamor mma mmarima!

Ɛnyɛ saa nkurɔfo yi na wopoo wɔn no? Afei pue kɔ na wo ne wɔn nkɔko.” 39  Enti Gaal dii Sekem mpanyimfo anim ne Abimelek kɔkoe. 40  Na Abimelek taa Gaal, na oguanee, na wokunkum nnipa pii guu hɔ ara kosii kurow no pon ano. 41  Afei Abimelek kɔɔ so tenaa Aruma, na Sebul+ pam Gaal ne ne nuanom fii Sekem. 42  Ade kyee no, nkurɔfo no pue kɔɔ wuram. Na ebinom kɔka kyerɛɛ Abimelek. 43  Enti ɔfaa nkurɔfo no, na ɔkyɛɛ wɔn mu akuw abiɛsa, na wɔkɔtetɛw wuram. Na bere a ohui sɛ nnipa no apue afi kurom hɔ reba no, ɔtow hyɛɛ wɔn so kunkum wɔn. 44  Na Abimelek ne kuw a wɔka ne ho no bɔɔ twi kogyinaa kurow no pon ano, na akuw abien no nso kɔtow hyɛɛ wɔn a wɔwɔ wuram no nyinaa so kunkum wɔn. 45  Na Abimelek ne kurow no mufo koe da mu no nyinaa, na ɔfaa kurow no.
