1 Ke kaloku kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kuYona, unyana ka-Amitayi, lisithi,
2 Suk’ ume, uye eNineve, kuloo mzi mkhulu, umemeze ngawo; kuba iindawo zawo ezimbi zinyukile, zeza phambi kwam.
3 Wesuka uYona, ebalekela eTarshishe, emka ebusweni bukaYehova. Wehla ke waya eYafo, wafumanana nenqanawa eya eTarshishe. Wayirhola ingqesho yayo, wehla, wangena kuyo, ukuze aye nabo eTarshishe, emke ebusweni bukaYehova.
4 Ke uYehova wagalelekisa umoya omkhulu elwandle; kwabakho umoya omkhulu ovuthuzayo elwandle, inqanawa leyo yanga iza kwaphuka.
5 Boyika oomateloshe, bakhala elowo kuthixo wakhe; bayijulela elwandle impahla ebisenqanaweni, ukuziphungulela bona. UYona ke wayehle waya ezantsi enqanaweni, wasindwa bubuthongo walala.
6 Wasondela kuye umphathi wababheqi, wathi kuye, Wenzani na, thongorhandini? Vuka, ubize kuThixo wakho; mhlawumbi uThixo angasikhumbula, singabhubhi.
7 Bathi omnye komnye, Yizani, senze amaqashiso, sazi ukuba kungenxa kabani na ukuba sibe nobu bubi. Benza amaqashiso, iqashiso laphuma noYona.
8 Bathi kuye, Khawusixelele, kungenxa kabani na ukuba sibe nobu bubi? uyintoni na umsebenzi wakho? uvela phi na? liphi na ilizwe lakowenu? ungowabaphi na abantu?
9 Wathi kubo, NdingumHebhere; ndiyamoyika uYehova, uThixo wamazulu, owenza ulwandle, nomhlaba lo womileyo.
10 Oyika amadoda lawo ngoloyiko olukhulu, athi kuye, Yintoni na le uyenzileyo? Ngokuba amadoda lawo ayesazi ukuba ubaleka emka ebusweni bukaYehova; kuba wayewaxelele.
11 Athi kuye, Masenze ntoni na kuwe, ukuze ulwandle ludambe, lusiyeke? Kuba ulwandle belusiya lusilwa.
12 Wathi kuwo, Ndifunquleni, nindijulele elwandle, ludambe ulwandle, luniyeke; kuba ndiyazi, ukuba lo moya, mkhulu uvuthuzayo, uphezu kwenu, ungenxa yam.
13 Atyhudisa emazeni amadoda, ezama ukuyibuyisela emhlabeni owomileyo inqanawa; akhohlwa, kuba ulwandle lwaya lusilwa phezu kwazo ngeenxa zonke.
14 Anqula uYehova, athi, Gxebe, Yehova, masingafi, masingafi ngomphefumlo wale ndoda, ungalibeki phezu kwethu igazi elimsulwa; ngokuba wena, Yehova, wenze ngokuthanda kwakho.
15 Amfunqula ke uYona, amjulela elwandle; lwazola ulwandle, lwakuyeka ukujala kwalo.
16 Amadoda amoyika uYehova ngoloyiko olukhulu, abingelela kuYehova umbingelelo, abhambathisa izibhambathiso.
17 UYehova wamisela intlanzi enkulu ukuba imginye uYona. UYona waba sembilinini wentlanzi iimini ezintathu nobusuku obuthathu.
