Isahluko 1

1 Umbono kaIsaya unyana ka-Amotsi, awawubonayo ngokusingisele kuYuda neYerusalem, ngemihla yoUziya, noYotam, noAhazi, noHezekiya, ookumkani bakwaYuda.
2 Yivani, mazulu; bekani indlebe, hlabathi, ngokuba kuthetha uYehova. Uthi, Ndikhulise abantwana ndabondla, besuka bakreqa kum.
3 Inkomo iyamazi umniniyo, ne-esile liyawazi umkhombe wesitali senkosi yalo; ke yena uSirayeli akazi, abantu bam abaqiqi.
4 Hayi, luhlanga lonayo, bantu banobugwenxa, mbewu yabenza ububi, nyana bonakalisayo! Bamshiyile uYehova, bamgibile oyiNgcwele kaSirayeli, babuyela emva.
5 Yini na ukuba nimane ukubethwa, nimane ukukwandisa ukutyeka? Yonke intloko iyafa, yonke intliziyo inobulwelwe;
6 kuthabathele enkwalini yonyawo, kwesa entloko, akukho ndawo iphilileyo; ziinduma, nemivumbo, namanxeba amatsha: akacudiswanga, akabotshwanga, akathanjiswanga ngaoli.
7 Kusenkangala elizweni lenu, imizi yenu itshiswe ngomlilo, umhlaba wenu udliwa ngabasemzini phambi kwenu, uyinkangala njengokubhukuqwa kwabasemzini.
8 Isele ke intombi enguZiyon, njengexhobongo esidiliyeni, njengephempe entsimini yemixoxozi, njengomzi ongqingiweyo.
9 Koko uYehova wemikhosi wasisalisela intwana esindileyo, singe saba njengeSodom, singe safana neGomora.
10 Liveni ilizwi likaYehova, baphathi baseSodom; wubekeleni indlebe umyalelo kaThixo wethu, bantu baseGomora.
11 Yeyani na kum le mibingelelo yenu mininzi kangaka? utsho uYehova. Ndidikiwe ngamadini anyukayo eenkunzi zeegusha, namanqatha amathole atyetyisiweyo; negazi leenkunzi ezintsha, neleemvana, neleebhokhwe, andilinanzile.
12 Xa niza kubonakala ebusweni bam, ngubani na okufunileyo oko esandleni senu, ukugqusha iintendelezo zam?
13 Nize ningaphindi nizise mnikelo wakudla ukhohlakeleyo; isiqhumiso silisikizi kum; ukuthwasa kwenyanga, nesabatha, nokumema intlanganiso, ubutshinga kunye nengqungquthela, andinakubuthwala.
14 Ukuthwasa kweenyanga zenu, namaxesha enu amisiweyo, umphefumlo wam uwathiyile; asuka aba bubunzima kum; ndidiniwe kukuwathwala.
15 Ekoluleni kwenu izandla zenu, ndiya kuwafihla amehlo am kuni; nokuba nandise ukuthandaza, andiyi kuva; izandla zenu zizele ngamagazi.
16 Zihlambeni, ziqaqambiseni; susani ububi beentlondi zenu phambi kwamehlo am;
17 yekani ukwenza ububi; fundani ukwenza okulungileyo; khathalelani ukugweba; lulekani isibhovubhovu; gwebani ityala lenkedama; lithetheni ityala lomhlolokazi.
18 Khanize sibonisane, utsho uYehova; nokuba izono zenu zide zavela zanjengengubo ebomvu, zoba mhlophe njengekhephu; nokuba zide zayingqombela njengebala elibomvu, zovela zinjengoboya begusha.
19 Ukuba nithe navuma naphulaphula, nodla izinto ezilungileyo zelizwe;
20 ukuba nithe anavuma, naba neenkani, nodliwa likrele; kuba umlomo kaYehova uthethile.
21 Yoo! Utheni na ukuba lihenyukazi umzi lo, ubunyanisile; ubuzele kokusesikweni; ubulungisa bebulala kuwo; ke ngoku ngabancinithi!
22 Isilivere yakho isuke yaba ligwebu; iwayini yakho entle ingxengelelwe ngamanzi.
23 Abathetheli bakho baziinjubaqa, ngamadlelana namasela; bathanda izicengo bonke bephela, basukela imivuzo; ityala lenkedama abaligwebi, netyala lomhlolokazi alinakufika kubo.
24 Ngako oko itsho iNkosi, uYehova wemikhosi, imbalasane yakwaSirayeli, ukuthi, Yeha! Ndiya kuzithuthuzela kubabandezeli bam, ndiziphindezelele ezintshabeni zam.
25 Ndosibuyisela phezu kwakho isandla sam, ndikunyibilikise ngokufezekileyo njengegolide, likhutshwe igwebu lakho, ndisuse yonke intsila yakho.
26 Ndobabuyisa abagwebi bakho njengokwasekuqaleni, namaphakathi akho njengokwamatanci. Emveni koko kuya kuthiwa, Wena ungumzi wobulungisa, uyinqaba enyanisileyo.
27 IZiyon iya kukhululwa ngokusesikweni, nabaguquki bayo ngobulungisa;
28 ukwaphulwa kwabakreqi naboni kube kunye, bapheliswe abamshiyayo uYehova.
29 Ngokuba baya kudana yimiterebhinti ebeniyinqwenela, nibe neentloni yimiyezo ebeniyinyula;
30 kuba niya kuba njengomterebhinti omagqabi omayo, nanjengomyezo ongenamanzi;
31 nenjengele ibe yingxubuwa, nomsebenzi wayo ube yintlantsi, kutshe kuphele kokubini kunye, kungabikho ucimayo.
