1 Amazwi kaYeremiya unyana kaHilekiya, wakubabingeleli baseAnatoti ezweni lakwaBhenjamin:
2 ekwafika kuye ilizwi likaYehova ngemihla kaYosiya unyana ka-Amon, ukumkani wakwaYuda, ngomnyaka weshumi elinesithathu wobukumkani bakhe;
3 nangemihla kaYoyakim unyana kaYosiya, ukumkani wakwaYuda, kwada kwaba sekupheleni komnyaka weshumi elinamnye kaZedekiya unyana kaYosiya, ukumkani wakwaYuda, kwada kwaba sekufudusweni kweYerusalem ngenyanga yesihlanu.
4 Kwafika ke ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,
5 Ndingekakubumbi esizalweni, bendikwazi; ungekaphumi embilinini, ndakungcwalisa, ndakumisa waba ngumprofeti weentlanga.
6 Ndathi mna, Kwowu, Nkosi Yehova, yabona, andikwazi ukuthetha, ngokuba ndingumntwana.
7 Wathi uYehova kum, Musa ukuthi, Ndingumntwana: ke uya kuya kubo bonke endikuthuma kubo; konke endikuwisela umthetho ngako, uze ukuthethe.
8 Uze ungaboyiki, ngokuba ndinawe ukuba ndikuhlangule; utsho uYehova.
9 Wasolula uYehova isandla sakhe, wachukumisa umlomo wam; wathi ke uYehova kum, Yabona, ndibeke amazwi am emlonyeni wakho.
10 Khangela, ndikwenza namhla umveleli weentlanga nezikumkani, ukuba unyothule, udilize, utshabalalise, ugungxule; ukuba wakhe, utyale.
11 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum lisithi, Yintoni na le uyibonayo, Yeremiya? Ndathi, Ndibona intonga yomthi womamangile.
12 Wathi uYehova kum, Ubone walungisa; ngokuba ndiya kuliphaphela ilizwi lam ukuba ndilenze.
13 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum ngokwesibini, lisithi, Yintoni na le uyibonayo? Ndathi, Ndibona imbiza ebaselweyo, ubuso bayo bubheke neno, isentla.
14 Wathi ke uYehova kum, Entla kuya kuphuma ububi, bube phezu kwabemi bonke belizwe.
15 Ngokuba, yabona, ndiya kubiza yonke imizalwane yezikumkani zasentla, utsho uYehova; ziya kuza ke, zimise iseso itrone yaso ekungeneni kwamasango eYerusalem, nasezindongeni zayo zonke ngeenxa zonke, nasemizini yonke yakwaYuda.
16 Ndiya kuthetha elokubagweba kwam ngenxa yobubi babo bonke, kuba bendishiyile, baqhumisela thixweni bambi, baqubuda emisebenzini yezandla zabo.
17 Ke wena, bhinqa amanqe akho, usuk’ ume, uthethe kubo konke endikuwisela umthetho ngako. Musa ukuqhiphuka umbilini ngabo, hleze mna ndikuqhiphule umbilini ngabo.
18 Uyabona ke, mna ndikwenza namhla umzi onqatyisiweyo, intsika yesinyithi, udonga lobhedu kulo lonke ilizwe, lokumkani bakwaYuda, nakubathetheli balo, kubabingeleli balo, nakubantu belizwe.
19 Baya kulwa nawe, bangabi nakukweyisa, ngokuba ndinawe ukuba ndikuhlangule; utsho uYehova.
