Your final wishes

Bereshit / Genesis 47:28-50:26 Melachim Aleph / 1 Kings 2:1-12 Kefa Aleph / 1 Peter 1:1-9 Bereshit {47:27} Yisrael (Israel) lived in the land of Mitzrayim (Egypt), in the land of Goshen; and they got themselves possessions therein, and were fruitful, and multiplied exceedingly. {47:28} Ya'akov lived in the land of Mitzrayim seventeen years. So the days of Ya'akov, the years of his life, were one hundred forty-seven years. {47:29} The time drew near that Yisrael must die, and he called his son Yoseph (Joseph), and said to him, "If now I have found favor in your sight, please put your hand under my thigh, and deal kindly and truly with me. Please do not bury me in Mitzrayim, {47:30} but when I sleep with my avot, you shall carry me out of Mitzrayim, and bury me in their burying place." I did not have to read very far to find a very important, practical principle recorded for us in this week’s Parasha. We read here that Ya’acov was anticipating his death … [Read more...]

Mashiach ben Yosef (mwana wa)

Bereshit/Mwanzo 47:28-50:26 Melachim Aleph/1 Wafalme 2:1-12 Kefa Aleph/Petro 1:1-9 Bereshit{47:27} Yisrael akakaa katika nchi ya Mitzrayim(Misri),katika sehemu ya Gosheni;na wakajipatia mali nyingi humo,wakazaana na kuongezeka mno.{47:28} Ya’acov alikaa katika Mitzrayim miaka kumi na saba.Basi,siku za Ya’acov,yani miaka aliyoishi,ilikuwa mia moja na arubaini na saba.{47:29} Muda ulikaribia ambapo lazima Yisrael angelilala mauti,naye akamwita mwanaye Yosef(Yusufu) na kumwambia,”Kama nimeta kibali machoni pako,tafadhali weka mkono wako chini ya paja langu,na unitendee kwa huruma na kweli.Tafadhali usinizike katika Mitzrayim,{47:30}lakini nitakapolala na avot(baba zangu),utanitoa katika Mitzrayim,na kunipeleka hadi kwenye makaburi ya baba zangu na kunizika huko.” Kuna jambo nililogundua katika kusoma kwangu kwa makini mafungu haya.Hapo mbeleni nimewahi kuzungumzia kuhusu namna HaShem anavyotumia majina Yisrael na Ya’acov akibadilisha … [Read more...]

Mag ek maar net die ellende nie aansien wat my vader sal tref nie! ”. Dit het veel van Juda vereis om uiteindelik te bely en verantwoordelikheid vir wat hy gedoen … [Read more...]
