1 Ngenyanga yesibhozo, ngomnyaka wesibini kaDariyo, kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kuZekariya unyana kaBherekiya, unyana kaIdo, umprofeti, lisithi:
2 UYehova waye enoburhalarhume obukhulu kooyihlo.
3 Yithi ke kubo, Utsho uYehova wemikhosi ukuthi, Buyelani kum, utsho uYehova wemikhosi; ndobuyela kuni, utsho uYehova wemikhosi.
4 Musani ukuba njengooyihlo, ababebizwa bona ngabaprofeti bangaphambili, besithi, Utsho uYehova wemikhosi ukuthi, Khanibuye ngoku ezindleleni zenu ezimbi nasezintlondini zenu ezimbi; ke abaphulaphula, abandibazela ndlebe; utsho uYehova.
5 Ooyihlo baphi na? nabaprofeti baya kudla ubomi ngonaphakade na?
6 Kodwa amazwi am, nemimiselo yam, endayimisela abakhonzi bam abaprofeti, ayibafumananga na ooyihlo? ukuze babuye bathi, Njengoko wakunkqangiyelayo uYehova ukuba akwenze kuthi, ngokweendlela zethu nangokweentlondi zethu, wenjenjalo kuthi.
7 Ngosuku lwamashumi omabini anesine lwenyanga yeshumi elinanye, inyanga enguShebhati, ngomnyaka wesibini kaDariyo, kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kuZekariya unyana kaBherekiya, unyana kaIdo, umprofeti, lisithi,
8 Ndibone ebusuku, nanko umntu ekhwele ehasheni elibomvu; waye ke emi phakathi kwemimirtile ebisenyobeni, ngasemva kwakhe ingamahashe, abomvu, nangwevu, namhlophe.
9 Ndathi, Ngoobani na aba, nkosi yam? Sathi kum isithunywa ebesithetha nam, Ndokubonisa ukuba ngoobani na aba.
10 Waphendula umntu obemi phakathi kwemimirtile wathi, Aba ngabathunywe nguYehova, ukuba balihambahambe ihlabathi.
11 Basiphendula isithunywa sikaYehova ebesimi phakathi kwemimirtile, bathi, Silihambahambile ihlabathi, nalo lonke ihlabathi lihleli lizolile.
12 Saphendula ke isithunywa sikaYehova, sathi, Yehova wemikhosi, koba nini na ungasikwa yimfesane wena, ngenxa yeYerusalem nemizi yakwaYuda, owayibhavumelayo le minyaka imashumi asixhenxe?
13 UYehova wasiphendula isithunywa esibe sithetha nam, ngamazwi alungileyo, ngamazwi athuthuzelayo.
14 Sathi kum isithunywa esibe sithetha nam, Memeza uthi, Utsho uYehova wemikhosi ukuthi, Ndinekhwele, ikhwele elikhulu, ngeYerusalem nangeZiyon.
15 Ndinoburhalarhume obukhulu kuzo iintlanga ezihleli ngokonwaba; ngokokuba bendinoburhalarhume mna umzuzwana, ke zona zongezelelela ububi.
16 Ngako oko, utsho uYehova ukuthi, Ndiyibuyele iYerusalem ngemfesane; indlu yam iya kwakhelwa khona, utsho uYehova wemikhosi; ulutya lokulinganisa luya kolulwa phezu kweYerusalem.
17 Buya umemeze, uthi, Utsho uYehova wemikhosi ukuthi, Imizi yam isaya kuphalala okulungileyo; uYehova usaya kuyithuthuzela iZiyon, ayinyule iYerusalem.
18 Ndaphakamisa amehlo am, ndakhangela, nanzo iimpondo, zine.
19 Ndathi kwisithunywa esibe sithetha nam, Ziyintoni na ezi? Sathi kum, Ezi ziimpondo ezichithachithe uYuda, uSirayeli, neYerusalem.
20 UYehova wandibonisa iingcibi zokukhanda, zine.
21 Ndathi, Aba baze kwenza ntoni na? Sathetha sathi, Ezi ziimpondo ezichithachithe uYuda, ngokokude kungabikho bani uphakamisa intloko yakhe: aba ke baze kuzothusa, baziwise phantsi iimpondo zeentlanga, eziphakamise uphondo ezweni lakwaYuda, ukuba zilichithachithe.
