1 Ngawo la ke amagama oonyana bakaSirayeli, ababefike eYiputa noYakobi; beza elowo nendlu yakhe:
2 uRubhen, uSimon, uLevi noYuda;
3 uIsakare, uZebhulon noBhenjamin;
4 uDan noNafetali, uGadi noAshere.
5 Iyonke imiphefumlo eyaphumayo esinqeni sikaYakobi yayiyimiphefumlo emashumi asixhenxe; uYosefu yena ubeseleseYiputa.
6 Wafa ke uYosefu nabazalwana bakhe bonke, neso sizukulwana sonke.
7 Oonyana bakaSirayeli baqhama, banyakazela, banda, baba namandla kakhulu kunene; lazala ilizwe ngabo.
8 Kwavela ukumkani omtsha phezu kweYiputa, owayengamazi uYosefu.
9 Wathi ebantwini bakhe, Yabonani, abantu oonyana bakaSirayeli baninzi, banamandla kunathi.
10 Yizani sibalumkise, hleze bande; bathi, xenikweni kuthe kwehla imfazwe, bathelele nabo kwiintshaba zethu, balwe nathi, banyuke baphume ezweni.
11 Bamisa ke phezu kwabo abathetheli bokubafaka uviko, ukuze babacinezele ngemithwalo yabo. Bamakhela ke uFaro imizi enoovimba, iPitom neRameses.
12 Okukhona babacinezelayo, kokukhona bandayo, kokukhona baphangalalayo; bakruquka ngabo oonyana bakaSirayeli.
13 AmaYiputa ke abakhonzisa oonyana bakaSirayeli ngokutyumzayo;
14 abenza bakrakra ubomi babo ngomsebenzi olukhuni, ngodaka nangezitena, nangeentlobo zonke zomsebenzi wasendle; yonke imisebenzi abasetyenziswa yona yayiyetyumzayo.
15 Ke kaloku ukumkani waseYiputa wathetha kubazalisikazi abangamaHebherekazi, igama lomnye linguShifra, igama lomnye linguPuwa;
16 wathi, Ekuzaliseni kwenu amaHebherekazi, khangelani xa azalayo: ukuba ithe yayinkwenkwe, noyibulala; ukuba ithe yayintombi, yodla ubomi.
17 Abazalisikazi boyika uThixo, abenza ngoko wathetha ngako kubo ukumkani waseYiputa, bawasindisa amakhwenkwe.
18 Wababiza ukumkani waseYiputa abazalisikazi, wathi kubo, Kungani na ukuba nenze le nto yokuwasindisa amakhwenkwe?
19 Bathi abazalisikazi kuFaro, AmaHebherekazi akanjengabafazi bamaYiputa, kuba omelele; azala engekangeni kuwo umzalisikazi.
20 Ngoko uThixo wabenzela okulungileyo abazalisikazi. Banda abantu, banamandla kakhulu.
21 Kwathi, kuba abazalisikazi babemoyika uThixo, wazisikelela izindlu zabo.
22 UFaro wabawisela umthetho abantu bakhe bonke, wathi, Bonke oonyana abathe bazalwa, baphoseni emlanjeni; ke zonke iintombi zisindiseni.

1 Kwaphuma umfo wendlu kaLevi, wazeka intombi yakwaLevi.
2 Wamitha umfazi lowo, wazala unyana; wambona ukuba mhle, wamfihla iinyanga ezintathu.
3 Wathi, akuba engasenako ukumfihla, wamthabathela umkhombe wemikhanzi, wawutyabeka ngebhitumene netywina, wamfaka kuwo umntwana, wawubeka engcotyeni, elunxwemeni lomlambo.
4 Udade wabo wema mgama, ukuze ayazi into eya kwenzeka kuye.
5 Yehla ke intombi kaFaro, isiya kuqubha emlanjeni; baye abakhonzazana bayo behamba ngasecaleni lomlambo. Yabona umkhombe engcotyeni phakathi, yathuma umkhonzazana wayo, ukuba aye kuwuthabatha.
6 Yawunqika, yambona umntwana; nantso inkwenkwana ilila. Yaba nofefe ngayo, yathi, Ngumntwana wamaHebhere lo.
7 Wathi udade wabo kwintombi kaFaro, Ndiye kukubizela na umfazi wamaHebhere onokwanyisa, akwanyisele umntwana?
8 Yathi intombi kaFaro kuye, Yiya. Yaya ke intombi leyo, yabiza unina womntwana.
9 Yathi intombi kaFaro kuye, Thabatha lo mntwana, umanyise; ndokunika umvuzo wakho mna. Umfazi lowo wamthabatha umntwana, wamanyisa.
10 Wakhula umntwana, wamsa ke kwintombi kaFaro, waba ngunyana wayo. Yamthiya igama elinguMoses, yathi, Ndamrhola emanzini.
11 Kwathi ke ngaloo mihla, akukhula uMoses, waphuma waya kubazalwana bakhe, ekhangela imithwalo yabo. Wabona umYiputa ebetha umHebhere wakubazalwana bakhe.
12 Wabhekabheka, wathi akuba engaboni mntu, wamthi qwaka umYiputa, wamselela entlabathini.
13 Waphuma ngemini yesibini; wabona amaHebhere emabini entlalana; wathi kowone omnye, Yini na ukuba umbethe ummelwane wakho?
14 Wathi yena, Umiswe ngubani na ukuba ube ngumthetheli nomgwebi phezu kwethu? Uza kundibulala na nam, usitsho nje, njengokuba umbulele umYiputa? Woyika uMoses, wathi, Mayibe le nto iyaziwa.
15 UFaro wayiva le nto, wafuna ukumbulala uMoses. Wabaleka uMoses, wemka kwaFaro, waya kuma ezweni lakwaMidiyan, wahlala phantsi ngasequleni.
16 Ke kaloku umbingeleli wakwaMidiyan wayeneentombi ezisixhenxe; zeza kukha amanzi, zayizalisa imikhumbi ukuba ziseze impahla emfutshane kayise.
17 Bafika abalusi, bazigxotha. Wesuka uMoses wazinceda, wayiseza impahla yazo emfutshane.
18 Zakufika kuRehuweli uyise, wathi, Nitheni na namhlanje ukuhle nifike?
19 Zathi, Sihlangulwe ngumYiputa esandleni sabalusi; kunjalo wasikhelela amanzi, wayiseza impahla emfutshane.
20 Wathi ezintombini zakhe, Uphi na? Nimshiyeleni na umntu lowo? Mbizeni, adle isonka.
21 Wakholwa uMoses kukuhlala naloo ndoda. Yamnika uMoses uTsipora, intombi yayo.
22 Yazala unyana, wamthiya igama elinguGershom, kuba ubesithi, Ndingumphambukeli ezweni lolunye uhlanga.
23 Kwathi emva kwaloo mihla mininzi wafa ukumkani waseYiputa. Bancwina oonyana bakaSirayeli ngenxa yomsebenzi, bakhala; kwenyuka ukuzibika kwabo, kwaya kuThixo, ngenxa yomsebenzi.
24 Wakuva uThixo ukugula kwabo, wawukhumbula uThixo umnqophiso wakhe noAbraham, noIsake, noYakobi.
25 UThixo wababona oonyana bakaSirayeli, wabazi uThixo.

1 Ke kaloku uMoses wayesalusa impahla emfutshane kaYitro, uyise womkakhe, umbingeleli wakwaMidiyan, wayiqhubela ele kwentlango, wafika entabeni kaThixo eHorebhe.
2 Kwabonakala isithunywa sikaYehova kuye, siselangatyeni lomlilo, etyholweni phakathi, wakhangela, wabona ityholo lisitsha ngumlilo, noko lingade litshe liphele.
3 Wathi uMoses, Makhe ndityeke, ndiye kubona lo mbono mkhulu; ukuba kutheni na ukuba ityholo lingatshi liphele.
4 Wabona uYehova, ukuba utyekile esiza kubona; uThixo wabiza esetyholweni phakathi, wathi kuye, Moses, Moses. Wathi yena, Ndilapha.
5 Wathi, Musa ukusondela apha. Khulula iimbadada zakho ezo ezinyaweni zakho, kuba loo ndawo umi kuyo ingumhlaba ongcwele.
6 Wathi, NdinguThixo kayihlo, uThixo ka-Abraham, uThixo kaIsake, uThixo kaYakobi. Wabusithelisa uMoses ubuso bakhe, kuba ebesoyika ukukhangela kuThixo.
7 Wathi uYehova, Ndizibonile okunene iintsizi zabantu bam abaseYiputa, nokukhala kwabo ndikuvile, ngenxa yabo babaqhuba kalukhuni; kuba ndiyawazi umvandedwa wabo.
8 Ndihlile ke; ndize kubahlangula esandleni samaYiputa, ndibanyuse baphume kwelo lizwe, baye ezweni elilungileyo, elibanzi, ezweni elibaleka amasi nobusi, endaweni yamaKanan, namaHiti, nama-Amori, namaPerizi, namaHivi, namaYebhusi.
9 Ngoku ke naku ukukhala koonyana bakaSirayeli, kufikile kum; kananjalo ndikubonile ukuxina abaxine ngako amaYiputa.
10 Hamba ngoku, ndikuthume kuFaro, ubakhuphe eYiputa abantu bam, oonyana bakaSirayeli.
11 Wathi uMoses kuThixo, Ndingubani na ukuba ndingade ndiye kuFaro, ukuba ndibakhuphe eYiputa oonyana bakaSirayeli?
12 Wathi, Ndiya kuba nawe. Nangu umqondiso wokuba ndikuthumile mna: ekubakhupheni kwakho abantu eYiputa, niya kumkhonza uThixo kule ntaba.
13 Wathi uMoses kuThixo, Uyabona, ukuba ndiya koonyana bakaSirayeli, ndithi kubo, UThixo wooyihlo undithumile kuni, baze bathi kum, Ngubani na igama lakhe? ndothini na kubo?
14 Wathi uThixo kuMoses, Ndinguye eNdinguye. Wathi, Wotsho koonyana bakaSirayeli ukuthi, uNdinguye undithumile kuni.
15 Waphinda wathi uThixo kuMoses, Wothi koonyana bakaSirayeli, UYehova, uThixo wooyihlo, uThixo ka-Abraham, uThixo kaIsake, uThixo kaYakobi, undithumile kuni: ligama lam elo ngonaphakade, sisikhumbuzo sam eso kwizizukulwana ngezizukulwana.
16 Yiya uhlanganise amadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli, uthi kuwo, UYehova, uThixo wooyihlo, uThixo ka-Abraham, kaIsake kaYakobi, ubonakele kum, wathi, Ndinivelele nina, naloo nto niyenziweyo eYiputa.
17 Ndathi, Ndiya kuninyusa niphume ezintsizini zaseYiputa, niye ezweni lamaKanan, namaHiti, nama-Amori, namaPerizi, namaHivi, namaYebhusi, ezweni elibaleka amasi nobusi.
18 Boliphulaphula ilizwi lakho; uze uye ke wena namadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli kukumkani waseYiputa, nithi kuye, UYehova uThixo wamaHebhere uhlangene nathi; ngoku makhe sihambe entlango uhambo lweentsuku ezintathu, sibingelele kuYehova uThixo wethu.
19 Ke mna ndiyazi, ukuba ukumkani waseYiputa akayi kunivumela ukuba nihambe, nokuba sekungesandla esithe nkqi.
20 Ndiya kusolula isandla sam, ndiyibethe iYiputa ngemisebenzi yam yonke ebalulekileyo, endiya kuyenza phakathi kwayo, andule ke ukunindulula.
21 Aba bantu ndiya kubababala phambi kwamaYiputa; kuthi, xa nithe nemka, ningemki nize.
22 Intokazi iya kucela kwengummelwane wayo, nakwengumphambukeli endlwini yayo, impahla yesilivere, nempahla yegolide, neengubo, nizinxibe oonyana benu neentombi zenu, niwaphange amaYiputa.

1 Waphendula uMoses wathi, Uyabona, abayi kukholwa ndim, abayi kuliphulaphula izwi lam; kuba baya kuthi, UYehova akabonakalanga kuwe.

8 Kothi, ukuba abathanga bakholwe nguwe, abaliphulaphula izwi lowokuqala umqondiso, bakholwe lilizwi lomqondiso wamva.

10 Wathi uMoses kuYehova, Camagu, Nkosi yam! Andindoda imazwi maninzi nanini na, oko wathethayo kumkhonzi wakho lo; kuba ndingokuthetha kunzima, ndikwanzima nolwimi.
11 Wathi uYehova kuye, Ngubani na obeke umlomo emntwini? Ngubani na owenze isidenge, nesithulu, nobonayo, nemfama? Asindim na, mna Yehova?
12 Ngoko ke hamba, ndoba nomlomo wakho mna, ndikubonise into oya kuyithetha.

14 Wavutha umsindo kaYehova kuMoses, wathi, Akanguye na umkhuluwa wakho uAron umLevi? Ndiyazi ukuba yena uyakwazi ukuthetha. Kananjalo nanko yena ephuma eza kukukhawulela; wokubona, avuye entliziyweni yakhe.
15 Wothetha kuye, ubeke amazwi emlonyeni wakhe; mna ndoba nomlomo wakho nomlomo wakhe, ndinibonise into eniya kuyenza.
16 Yena wokuthethela ebantwini, athi yena abe ngumlomo kuwe, uthi wena ube nguthixo kuye.
17 Ke le ntonga yiphathe ngesandla sakho; uya kwenza ngayo imiqondiso leyo.
18 Wahamba ke uMoses, wabuyela kuYitro, uyise womkakhe, wathi kuye, Makhe ndihambe, ndibuyele kubazalwana bam abaseYiputa, ndibone ukuba basahleli na. Wathi uYitro kuMoses, Hamba ngoxolo.
19 UYehova wathi kuMoses kwaMidiyan, Hamba ubuyele eYiputa; kuba afile onke amadoda abezonda ubomi bakho.
20 UMoses wathabatha umkakhe noonyana bakhe, wabakhwelisa e-esileni, wabuyela ezweni laseYiputa; wayiphatha uMoses intonga kaThixo ngesandla sakhe.
21 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Ekuhambeni kwakho ubuyela eYiputa, uze ukhangele ukuba uzenze phambi koFaro zonke izimanga, endizibeke esandleni sakho. Ke mna ndiya kuyenza lukhuni intliziyo yakhe, angabandululi abantu.
22 Wothi kuFaro, Utsho uYehova ukuthi, Unyana wam wamazibulo nguSirayeli;
23 ndithi kuwe, Mndulule unyana wam lowo, andikhonze; walile nje ukumndulula, uyabona, ndombulala unyana wakho, amazibulo akho.
24 Kwathi, endleleni apho balalisa khona, uYehova wamhlangabeza, wafuna ukumbulala.
25 UTsipora wathabatha intshengece, wanqumla inyama yokwaluswa yonyana wakhe, wayiphosa ezinyaweni zakhe, wathi, Ungumyeni wamagazi kum.
26 Wamyeka ke. Watsho oko ukuthi, Ungumyeni wamagazi, ngenxa yolwaluko.
27 Wathi uYehova kuAron, Hamba uye kukhawulela uMoses entlango. Waya ke, wamhlangabeza entabeni kaThixo, wamanga.
28 UMoses wamxelela uAron onke amazwi kaYehova abemthume wona, nemiqondiso yonke abemwisele umthetho ngayo.
29 Wahamba uMoses noAron, bawahlanganisa onke amadoda amakhulu oonyana bakaSirayeli.
30 Wawathetha uAron onke amazwi abewathethile uYehova kuMoses, wayenza nemiqondiso phambi kwabantu.
31 Bakholwa abantu, beva ukuba uYehova ubavelele oonyana bakaSirayeli wazibona iintsizi zabo, bathoba baqubuda.




Isahluko 5

1 Emveni koko beza ooMoses noAron, bathi kuFaro, Utsho uYehova, uThixo kaSirayeli, ukuthi, Bandulule abantu bam, bandenzele umthendeleko entlango.
2 Wathi uFaro, Ngubani na uYehova, ukuba ndiphulaphule izwi lakhe, lokuba ndindulule uSirayeli? Andimazi uYehova, kananjalo andiyi kumndulula uSirayeli.
3 Bathi ke, UThixo wamaHebhere uhlangene nathi; makhe sihambe entlango uhambo lweentsuku ezintathu, sibingelele kuYehova uThixo wethu, hleze asiqwele ngendyikitya yokufa nangekrele.
4 Wathi ukumkani waseYiputa kubo, Yini na, nina Moses noAron, ukuba nibakhulule abantu emisebenzini yabo? Yiyani emithwalweni yenu.
5 Wathi uFaro, Yabonani, baninzi abantu belizwe ngoku, ke nina niyabaphumza emithwalweni yabo.
6 UFaro wabawisela umthetho abaphathi nabaqhubi-kalukhuni babantu ngaloo mini, esithi,
7 Ize ningabi sabanika abantu umququ wokwenza izitena, njengokwangaphambili; mabaye ngokwabo, bazibuthele umququ;
8 nenani ababelenza njengokwangaphambili, bamiseleni lona; ize ningalinciphisi, kuba bayahiliza; kuko le nto bakhalayo, besithi, Masiye kubingelela kuThixo wethu.
9 Mawube nzima umsebenzi phezu kwamadoda, asebenze wona, angaphulaphuli amazwi obuxoki.
10 Baphuma ke abaphathi nabaqhubi-kalukhuni babantu, bathetha ebantwini bathi, Utsho uFaro ukuthi, Andiyi kuninika mququ;
11 yiyani nina, nizithabathele umququ apho ningawufumana khona; kuba akuyi kuncitshiswa nto emsebenzini wenu.
12 Baphalazeka abantu ezweni lonke laseYiputa, babutha iindiza endaweni yomququ.
13 Abaqhubi-kalukhuni babantu babangxamisa, besithi, Yisebenzeni imisebenzi yenu, into yemini ngangemini yayo, ngangokuya naninomququ.
14 Babethwa ke abaphathi boonyana bakaSirayeli, ababemiswe phezu kwabo ngabaqhubi-kalukhuni babantu bakaFaro, kusithiwa, Kungathuba lini na, ukuba ningagqibi ukwenza izitena enizimiselweyo izolo nanamhla, njengokwangaphambili?
15 Baya abaphathi boonyana bakaSirayeli, bakhala kuFaro, besithi, Yini na ukuba wenjenje kubakhonzi bakho?
16 Abakhonzi bakho aba abanikwa mququ; kuthiwa ke kuthi, Yenzani izitena. Yabona, abakhonzi bakho aba bayabethwa, kanti kona abantu bakho abo.
17 Wathi, Kuhiliza nina; niyahiliza, kuko le nto nithi, Masiye sibingelele kuYehova.
18 Yiyani ke ngoku, nisebenze; aniyi kunikwa mququ; ke lona inani lezitena niya kulirhola.
19 Babona abaphathi boonyana bakaSirayeli ukuba basebubini, kusithiwa nje, Aniyi kunciphisa nto eziteneni zenu, kwinto yemini ngangemini yayo.
20 Baqubisana noMoses noAron, beza kubo ekuphumeni kwabo kuFaro.
21 Bathi kubo, UYehova makanikhangele, agwebe; ekubeni nilinukisile ivumba lethu phambi koFaro, naphambi kwabakhonzi bakhe, ukuba kubekwe ikrele lokusibulala esandleni sabo.
22 Wabuyela kuYehova uMoses, esithi, Nkosi yam, yini na ukuba ubaphathe kakubi aba bantu? Yini na le nto uthume mna?
23 Kususela koko ndangenayo kuFaro, ndithetha egameni lakho, yena ubaphethe kakubi aba bantu; akubahlangulanga nokubahlangula abantu bakho.

2 Wena wothetha zonke izinto endikuwisele umthetho ngazo; ke uAron umkhuluwa wakho wothetha kuFaro, aze abandulule oonyana bakaSirayeli ezweni lakhe.
3 Ke mna ndiya kuyiqaqadekisa intliziyo kaFaro, ndiyandise imiqondiso yam nezimanga zam ezweni laseYiputa.

9 Xa athe uFaro wathetha kuni, esithi, Ndiboniseni isimanga, wothi wena kuAron, Thabatha intonga yakho, uyiphose phambi koFaro; yoba yinyoka.
10 Wangena uMoses noAron kuFaro; benza njengoko uYehova wabawisela umthetho, uAron wayiphosa intonga yakhe phambi koFaro, naphambi kwabakhonzi bakhe, yaba yinyoka.
11 Naye uFaro wazibiza izilumko nabakhafuli; zenjenjalo nezazi ezo zaseYiputa, ngobugqi bazo.
12 Elowo waphosa phantsi intonga yakhe, yaba yinyoka; yasuka intonga ka-Aron yaziginya iintonga zabo.
13 Yaba lukhuni intliziyo kaFaro; akabaphulaphula, njengoko wayetshilo uYehova.
14 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Intliziyo kaFaro iqaqadekile, akavumi ukubandulula abantu.
15 Yiya kuFaro kusasa, nanko ephuma esiya emanzini. Uze ume elunxwemeni lomlambo malunga naye; intonga eyaguqukayo yaba yinyoka yiphathe esandleni.
16 Uze uthi kuye, UYehova, uThixo wamaHebhere, undithume kuwe, esithi, Bandulule abantu bam, baye kundikhonza entlango; yabona ke, akuphulaphulanga unangoku.
17 Utsho uYehova ukuthi, Uya kwazi ngale nto ke ukuba ndinguYehova. Yabona, ndiya kubetha ngentonga esesandleni sam emanzini omlambo, aguqulwe abe ligazi,
18 zife iintlanzi ezisemlanjeni, unuke umlambo, amaYiputa abe nesicaphucaphu akuwasela amanzi omlambo.
19 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yithi kuAron, Thabatha intonga yakho, wolule isandla sakho phezu kwamanzi aseYiputa, phezu kwemilambo yabo, naphezu kwemijelo yabo, naphezu kwamachibi abo, naphezu kweentlangano zonke zamanzi abo; abe ligazi, ibe ligazi ezweni lonke laseYiputa, nasemiphandeni yemithi neyamatye.
20 OoMoses noAron benza njengoko uYehova wabawisela umthetho; wayiphakamisa intonga, wawabetha amanzi omlambo phambi koFaro, naphambi kwabakhonzi bakhe; aza aguquka onke amanzi omlambo, aba ligazi.
21 Zafa iintlanzi ezisemlanjeni, wanuka umlambo, akaba nako amaYiputa ukuwasela amanzi omlambo; laba ligazi ezweni lonke laseYiputa.
22 Zenjenjalo ke nezazi zaseYiputa ngobugqi bazo, Yaba lukhuni intliziyo kaFaro, akabaphulaphula, njengoko wayetshilo uYehova.
23 Wajika uFaro, waya endlwini yakhe, akayibekela ntliziyo nale nto.
24 Onke amaYiputa emba amanzi okusela ngeenxa zonke emlanjeni; kuba ebengenakuwasela amanzi omlambo.
25 Kwazaliseka isixhenxe seentsuku emveni kokuwubetha kwakhe uYehova umlambo.




Isahluko 8

1 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yiya kuFaro, uthi kuye, Utsho uYehova ukuthi, Bandulule abantu bam, baye kundikhonza.
2 Ke ukuba uthe akwavuma ukubandulula, uyabona, ndoyibetha yonke imida yakho ngamasele;
3 umlambo unyakazele amasele, anyuke, angene endlwini yakho, nasesililini sakho, naphezu kwesingqengqelo sakho, nasendlwini yabakhonzi bakho, nasebantwini bakho, nasezimbizeni zakho, nasemikhumbini yakho yentlama;
4 anyuke amasele lawo, eze nakuwe, nakubantu bakho, nakubakhonzi bakho bonke.
5 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yithi kuAron, Yolula isandla sakho eso sinentonga yakho phezu kwemilambo, naphezu kwemijelo, naphezu kwamachibi, unyuse amasele phezu kwelizwe laseYiputa.
6 Wasolula ke uAron isandla sakhe phezu kwamanzi aseYiputa; enyuka amasele, aligubungela ilizwe laseYiputa.
7 Zenjenjalo nezazi ngobugqi bazo, zawanyusa amasele phezu kwelizwe laseYiputa.
8 UFaro wabiza uMoses noAron, wathi, Mthandazeni uYehova, awasuse amasele kum nasebantwini bam; ndobandulula abantu, baye kubingelela kuYehova.
9 Wathi uMoses kuFaro, Zizukise ngokundimisela ixesha lokuba ndikuthandazele nini na, wena nabakhonzi bakho, nabantu bakho, anqunyulwe amasele kuwe nakwindlu yakho, asale emlanjeni wodwa.
10 Wathi yena, Ngomso. Wathi ke, Makube ngokwelizwi lakho, ukuze wazi ukuba akukho unjengoYehova uThixo wethu;
11 asuke amasele kuwe, nakwizindlu zakho, nakubakhonzi bakho, nakubantu bakho; asale emlanjeni wodwa.
12 Baphuma ke ooMoses noAron kuFaro; wadanduluka uMoses kuYehova ngendawo yamasele abewabeke phezu koFaro.
13 Wenza uYehova ngokwelizwi likaMoses. Afa amasele ezindlwini, nasezintendelezweni, nasemasimini.
14 Bawahlanganisa aziimfumba ngeemfumba; lanuka ilizwe.
15 Uthe ke uFaro akuba nethuba lokuphefumla, wayenza lukhuni intliziyo yakhe, akabaphulaphula, njengoko watshoyo uYehova.
16 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yithi kuAron, Yolula intonga yakho, ulubethe uthuli lwelizwe lube ziingcongconi ezweni lonke laseYiputa.
17 Benjenjalo. Wasolula uAron isandla sakhe eso sinentonga yakhe, walubetha uthuli lwelizwe, lwaba ziingcongconi ebantwini nasezinkomeni. Lonke uthuli lwelizwe lwaba ziingcongconi ezweni lonke laseYiputa.
18 Zenjenjalo nezazi ngobugqi bazo, ukuba zivelise iingcongconi, azaba nako. Kwakho iingcongconi ebantwini nasezinkomeni.
19 Zathi izazi kuFaro, Ngumnwe kaThixo. Yaba lukhuni intliziyo kaFaro, akabaphulaphula, njengoko watshoyo uYehova.
20 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Vuka kusasa ngomso, ume phambi koFaro, nanko ephuma esiya emanzini; uthi kuye, Utsho uYehova ukuthi, Bandulule abantu bam, baye kundikhonza.
21 Okanye ukuba uthe akwabandulula abantu bam, yabona, ndithuma izibawu kuwe, nakubakhonzi bakho, nakubantu bakho, nasezindlwini zakho, zizale izindlu zamaYiputa zizibawu, nomhlaba akuwo;
22 ndilibalule ngaloo mini lona ilizwe laseGoshen, abemi kulo abantu bam, kungabikho zibawu khona, ukuze wazi ukuba ndinguYehova phakathi kwelizwe;
23 ndimise inkululo phakathi kwabantu bam nabantu bakho; lo mqondiso uya kubakho ngomso.
24 Wenjenjalo uYehova. Kweza izibawu ezininzi endlwini kaFaro, nasezindlwini zabakhonzi bakhe, nasezweni lonke laseYiputa; lonakala ilizwe zizibawu.
25 UFaro wabiza uMoses na-Aron, wathi, Yiyani nibingelele kuThixo wenu kweli lizwe.
26 Wathi uMoses, Akulungisile ukwenjenjalo; kuba soba sibingelela amasikizi amaYiputa kuYehova uThixo wethu. Ukuba sithe sabingelela into engamasikizi kumaYiputa phambi kwawo, osixuluba ngamatye.
27 Siya kuhamba uhambo lweentsuku ezintathu entlango, sibingelele kuYehova uThixo wethu, njengoko wothi asiyalele.
28 Wathi uFaro, Ndiya kunindulula nina, niye kubingelela kuYehova uThixo wenu entlango, kodwa ize ningahambi niye kude; ndithandazeleni.
29 Wathi uMoses, Yabona, ndiya kuphuma kuwe, ndithandaze kuYehova, zimke izibawu kuFaro, nakubakhonzi bakhe, nakubantu bakhe ngomso, kodwa makangaphindi uFaro akhohlise ngokungabandululi abantu, baye kubingelela kuYehova.
30 Wemka uMoses, wathandaza kuYehova.
31 Wenza uYehova ngokwelizwi likaMoses, wazisusa izibawu kuFaro, nakubakhonzi bakhe, nakubantu bakhe; akwasala nasinye.
32 UFaro wayiqaqadekisa intliziyo yakhe, nangesi sihlandlo, akabandulula abantu.




Isahluko 9

1 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yiya kuFaro, uthethe naye, uthi, Utsho uYehova uThixo wamaHebhere, ukuthi, Bandulule abantu bam, baye kundikhonza.
2 Okanye ukuba uthe akwavuma ukubandulula,
3 waba usababambile, yabona, isandla sikaYehova soba semfuyweni yakho esendle, emahasheni, emaesileni, ezinkameleni, ezinkomeni, nasempahleni emfutshane, senze indyikitya yokufa enzima kunene;
4 uYehova ayibalule imfuyo yamaSirayeli kwimfuyo yamaYiputa: akuyi kufa nto kuyo yonke eyoonyana bakaSirayeli.
5 UYehova umise ixesha elithile, wathi, Ngomso uYehova uya kuyenza le nto kweli lizwe.
6 Wayenza ke uYehova le nto ngengomso. Yafa yonke imfuyo yamaYiputa; ke kweyoonyana bakaSirayeli imfuyo akufanga nanye.
7 UFaro wasusa umntu. O, kweyamaSirayeli imfuyo akufanga nokuba ibe nye. Yaqaqadeka intliziyo kaFaro, akabandulula abantu.
8 Wathi uYehova kuMoses nakuAron, Thabathani uthuthu lweziko, nizalise izandla zozibini, uMoses aluphose phezulu esibhakabhakeni phambi koFaro,
9 lube luthuli ezweni lonke laseYiputa, lube ngamathumba athe qwele ngamaqhakuva ebantwini, nasezinkomeni, ezweni lonke laseYiputa.
10 Baluthabatha ke uthuthu lweziko, bema phambi koFaro; uMoses waluphosa phezulu esibhakabhakeni, lwaba ngamathumba athe qwele ngamaqhakuva ebantwini nasezinkomeni.
11 Azaba nako izazi ukuma phambi koMoses ngenxa yamathumba; kuba amathumba abakho kwizazi nakumaYiputa onke.
12 UYehova wayenza lukhuni intliziyo kaFaro, akabaphulaphula, njengoko watshoyo uYehova kuMoses.
13 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Vuka kusasa, ume phambi koFaro, uthi kuye, Utsho uYehova uThixo wamaHebhere, ukuthi, Bandulule abantu bam, baye kundikhonza.
14 Kuba ngesi sihlandlo ndithuma zonke izibetho zam entliziyweni yakho, nakubakhonzi bakho, nakubantu bakho, ukuze wazi ukuba akukho unjengam ehlabathini lonke.
15 Kuba ngoku, ukuba bendithe ndasolula isandla sam, ndakubetha wena nabantu bakho ngendyikitya yokufa, ngewuthe shwaka akwabakho ehlabathini.
16 Noko ke ndikumisele eli thuba lokuba ndiwabonakalalise amandla am kuwe, laziswe igama lam ehlabathini lonke.
17 Unangoku usazenza udonga kubantu bam, akubandululi.
18 Yabona, eli xa ngomso ndiya kunisa isichotho esinzima kunene, ekungazanga kubekho singangaso eYiputa, kususela kwimini eyasekwayo kude kube ngoku.
19 Thumela ngoku, ukhawuleze, uhlanganise imfuyo yakho, neento zakho zonke onazo ezindle; bonke abantu neenkomo ezifunyenwe endle zingahlanganiselwanga ekhaya, zohlelwa sisichotho, zife.
20 Owaloyikayo ilizwi likaYehova kubakhonzi bakaFaro, wabasabisela ezindlwini abakhonzi bakhe nemfuyo yakhe.
21 Ongalibekelanga ntliziyo ilizwi likaYehova, wabayeka abakhonzi bakhe nemfuyo yakhe endle.
22 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yolulela isandla sakho ezulwini, kubekho isichotho ezweni lonke laseYiputa phezu kwabantu, naphezu kweenkomo, naphezu kwemifuno yonke yasendle, ezweni lonke laseYiputa.
23 UMoses wayolulela intonga yakhe ezulwini; uYehova wathoba indudumo nesichotho, nomlilo wehla weza emhlabeni. UYehova walinisela isichotho ilizwe laseYiputa.
24 Kwabakho ke isichotho, nomlilo obophene phakathi kwesichotho, sinzima kunene, ekungazanga kubekho singangaso ezweni lonke lamaYiputa, kususela oko aba luhlanga.
25 Isichotho sayibetha yonke into esendle ezweni lonke laseYiputa, kwathabathela emntwini kwesa enkomeni; sayibetha isichotho yonke imifuno yasendle, sayaphula yonke imithi yasendle.
26 Kodwa ezweni laseGoshen, apho babekhona oonyana bakaSirayeli, akubangakho sichotho.
27 Wathuma uFaro, wabiza uMoses noAron, wathi kubo, Ndonile okwesi sihlandlo. UYehova ulilungisa, ke mna nabantu bam asindawo.
28 Thandazani kuYehova; kwanele ukubakho kweendudumo zikaThixo nesichotho; ndonindulula ningabi sahlala.
29 UMoses wathi kuye, Ekuphumeni kwam phakathi komzi, ndozolulela kuYehova izandla zam, ziyeke iindudumo, nesichotho singabi sabakho, ukuze wazi ukuba umhlaba lo ngokaYehova.
30 Ke wena nabakhonzi bakho, ndiyazi ukuba aniyi kwandula nimoyike uYehova uThixo.
31 Yabhuqwa iflakisi nerhasi, kuba irhasi ibiselidubule, neflakisi ibiselityatyambile.
32 Ke yona ingqolowa nespelete ayibhuqwanga; kuba ibisencinane.
33 Waphuma uMoses phakathi komzi, wemka kuFaro, wazolulela izandla zakhe kuYehova, zayeka iindudumo nesichotho, yathula imvula emhlabeni.
34 Wabona uFaro ukuba iphelile imvula nesichotho neendudumo, waphinda wona, wayiqaqadekisa intliziyo yakhe, yena nabakhonzi bakhe.
35 Yaba lukhuni ke intliziyo kaFaro, akabandulula oonyana bakaSirayeli, njengoko watshoyo uYehova ngoMoses.




Isahluko 10

1 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yiya kuFaro; kuba mna ndiyiqaqadekisile intliziyo yakhe, nentliziyo yabakhonzi bakhe, ukuze ndibonakalalise le miqondiso yam phakathi kwalo ilizwe;
2 ukuze ubalise, ezindlebeni zonyana wakho nezonyana wonyana wakho, izenzo ezincamisileyo endizenzileyo kumaYiputa, nemiqondiso yam endiyibonakalalisileyo phakathi kwawo, ukuze nazi ukuba ndinguYehova.
3 Waya uMoses noAron kuFaro, bathi kuye, Utsho uYehova, uThixo wamaHebhere, ukuthi, Kunini na ungavumi ukuzithoba phambi kwam? Bandulule abantu bam, baye kundikhonza.
4 Okanye ukuba uthe akwavuma ukubandulula abantu bam, uyabona, ngomso ndozisa iinkumbi emideni yakho;
5 zibugubungele ubuso belizwe, lingabi nakubonwa ilizwe, zidle intsalela esindileyo, enisalele esichothweni, zidle yonke imithi enihlumelayo endle;
6 zizalise izindlu zakho, nezindlu zabakhonzi bakho bonke, nezindlu zamaYiputa onke: iinkumbi ezingabonwanga ngooyihlo noonyokokhulu, kususela kwiimini ababekho ngazo emhlabeni, unanamhla. Wajika, waphuma kuFaro.
7 Bathi abakhonzi bakaFaro kuye, Koda kube nini na, lo engumgibe kuthi? Bandulule abantu, baye kukhonza uYehova uThixo wabo. Akukazi na, kuhleliwe nje, ukuba iYiputa iza kutshabalala?
8 Baza ooMoses noAron babuyiselwa kwakuFaro; wathi kubo, Hambani, niye kukhonza uYehova uThixo wenu; kuhamba oobani noobani ke?
9 Wathi uMoses, Siya kuhamba nolutsha neengwevu zakowethu, sihambe noonyana bethu neentombi zethu, nempahla yethu emfutshane neenkomo zethu; kuba kuthi ngumthendeleko kaYehova.
10 Wathi kubo, Makube njalo kambe; uYehova makabe nani, njengokuba ndinindulula nina nentsapho yenu. Khangelani, kukho ububi phambi kwenu.
11 Makungabi njalo; makuhambe nina bangamadoda, niye kukhonza uYehova; kuba nibe nifuna oko. Bagxothwa, baphuma ebusweni bukaFaro.
12 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yolula isandla sakho phezu kwelizwe laseYiputa, kuze iinkumbi, zinyuke kulo ilizwe laseYiputa, ziyidle yonke imifuno yelizwe eli, yonke into eshiywe sisichotho.
13 Wayolula uMoses intonga yakhe phezu kwelizwe laseYiputa, uYehova waqhuba umoya wasempumalanga kwelo lizwe yonke loo mini nobusuku bonke; kwakusa, umoya wasempumalanga wazithwala iinkumbi.
14 Zenyuka iinkumbi kulo lonke ilizwe laseYiputa; zeza zahlala emideni yonke yaseYiputa, zininzi kunene; ekungazanga phambi kwazo kubekho zinkumbi zingako, kwabe emva kwazo kungasayi kubakho zinjalo.
15 Zabugubungela ubuso belizwe lonke, laba mnyama ilizwe; zayidla yonke imifuno yelizwe neziqhamo zonke zemithi, ezazishiywe sisichotho; akwasala nanye into eluhlaza emthini nasemifunweni yasendle, ezweni lonke laseYiputa.
16 Wakhawuleza uFaro wabiza uMoses noAron, wathi, Ndonile kuYehova uThixo wenu nakuni.
17 Kaloku khanisixolele isono sam okwesi sihlandlo sodwa, nithandaze kuYehova uThixo wenu, akususe kum oku kufa kodwa.
18 Waphuma kuFaro, wathandaza kuYehova.
19 UYehova wawuguqula umoya, waba ngowasentshonalanga onamandla kunene, wazithwala iinkumbi, wazidiba eLwandle oluBomvu; akwasala nanye inkumbi, emideni yonke yaseYiputa.
20 Wayenza lukhuni uYehova intliziyo kaFaro, akabandulula oonyana bakaSirayeli.
21 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yolulela isandla sakho ezulwini, kubekho ubumnyama ezweni laseYiputa, ubumnyama obungqingqwa.
22 Wasolulela uMoses isandla sakhe ezulwini; kwabakho ubumnyama obusithokothoko ezweni lonke laseYiputa imihla emithathu.
23 Ababonana; akwasuka bani endaweni yakhe imihla emithathu; ke kubo bonke oonyana bakaSirayeli kwabakho ukukhanya emakhayeni abo.
24 UFaro wabiza uMoses, wathi, Hambani niye kukhonza uYehova; kodwa impahla yenu emfutshane neenkomo zenu mazisale; nayo intsapho yenu yohamba nani.
25 Wathi uMoses, Wena uze usinike imibingelelo namadini anyukayo ezandleni zethu, sibingelele kuYehova uThixo wethu;
26 nemfuyo yethu ihambe nathi; akuyi kusala nophuphu olunye; kuba sothabatha kuyo ukukhonza uYehova uThixo wethu; kuba thina asazi ukuba somkhonza ngantoni na uYehova, side sifike khona.
27 UYehova wayenza lukhuni intliziyo kaFaro, akavuma ukubandulula.
28 Wathi uFaro kuye, Hamba umke kum, uze uzigcine, ungaphindi ububone ubuso bam; kuba mhlana ububonileyo ubuso bam uya kufa.
29 Wathi uMoses, Utyaphile utsho; andisayi kuphinda ndibubone ubuso bakho.




Isahluko 11

1 UYehova wathi kuMoses, Ndisaya kufikisa sibetho sinye phezu koFaro naphezu kweYiputa, emveni koko wonindulula nimke apha; xa anindulula kuphele, uya kunigxotha kanye, nimke apha.
2 Khawuthethe ezindlebeni zabantu, ithi inkazana icele kummelwane wayo, indoda icele kummelwane wayo, iimpahla zesilivere neempahla zegolide.
3 UYehova wabababala abantu emehlweni amaYiputa. Kananjalo indoda leyo inguMoses yayinkulu kunene ezweni laseYiputa kubakhonzi bakaFaro nasebantwini.
4 Wathi uMoses, Utsho uYehova ukuthi, Xa kuphakathi kobusuku, ndiya kuphuma ndihambe phakathi kweYiputa,
5 afe onke amazibulo ezweni laseYiputa, ethabathela kumazibulo kaFaro, ohleliyo etroneni yakhe, ese kumazibulo omkhonzazana osemva kwamatye okusila, namazibulo onke eenkomo;
6 kubekho isikhalo esikhulu ezweni lonke laseYiputa, ekungazanga kubekho sinjalo, kwaye kungayi kuphinda kubekho sinjalo.
7 Ke kubo bonke oonyana bakaSirayeli, akukho nja iya kubavungamela, kuthabathela emntwini kuse ezinkomeni; ukuze nazi ukuba uYehova uyawahlula amaYiputa kumaSirayeli;
8 behle bonke abakhonzi bakho abo, beze kum, baqubude kum, besithi, Phuma wena nabantu bonke abakulandelayo; ndiphume ke emveni koko. Waza waphuma kuFaro, evutha ngumsindo.
9 UYehova wathi kuMoses, Akayi kuniphulaphula uFaro, ukuze zande izimanga zam ezweni laseYiputa.
10 UMoses noAron bazenza ke ezi zimanga zonke phambi koFaro; uYehova wayenza lukhuni intliziyo kaFaro, akabandulula oonyana bakaSirayeli ezweni lakhe.




Isahluko 12

1 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses nakuAron ezweni laseYiputa, wathi,
2 Le nyanga kuni iyintloko yeenyanga; kuni yeyokuqala ezinyangeni zomnyaka.
3 Thethani kwibandla lonke lakwaSirayeli, nithi, Ngolweshumi usuku kule nyanga elowo makazithabathele ixhwane, ngokwenzindlu zooyise, ixhwane ngendlu.
4 Ukuba ithe indlu yancinane exhwaneni, makathabathe ixhwane yena enommelwane wakhe okufuphi nendlu yakhe, ngokwenani labantu; elowo ngangokokudla kwakhe nombalela exhwaneni.
5 Ixhwane lenu malibe liduna eligqibeleleyo, elimnyaka mnye; nolithabatha ezigusheni nokuba kusezibhokhweni.
6 Nize niligcine kude kube lusuku lweshumi elinesine lwale nyanga, silixhele ke sonke isikhungu sebandla lakwaSirayeli lakutshona ilanga;
7 bacaphule egazini, baliqabe emigubasini yomibini nasemqadini wezindlu eliya kudlelwa kuzo ngabo;
8 bayidle inyama ngobo busuku, yosiwe ngomlilo, inezonka ezingenagwele, bayidle nemithana ekrakra.
9 Musani ukudla ndawo ikrwada kuyo, nandawo ikuphekwa iphekwe ngamanzi; mayosiwe ngomlilo: intloko yalo namanqina alo nezibilini zalo.
10 Nize ningasalisi ndawo yalo kude kuse; okuseleyo kulo kwada kwasa nokutshisa ngomlilo.
11 Nize nenjenje ukulidla; nodla nibhinqile, nineembadada ezinyaweni zenu, ninentonga esandleni senu, nilidle buphuthuphuthu: leyo yipasika kuYehova.
12 Ndiya kucanda ezweni laseYiputa ngobu busuku, ndibethe onke amazibulo ezweni laseYiputa, ndithabathele emntwini ndise enkomeni, ndenze izigwebo koothixo bonke baseYiputa, mna Yehova.
13 Igazi elo loba ngumqondiso kuni ezindlwini enikuzo. Ndolibona igazi, ndigqithe kuni, singabikho kuni isibetho esonakalisayo, ekulibetheni kwam ilizwe laseYiputa.
14 Le mini yoba sisikhumbuzo kuni, niyenze umthendeleko kuYehova; ezizukulwaneni zenu niyenze ummiselo ongunaphakade.
15 Nodla izonka ezingenagwele iintsuku zibe sixhenxe; kwangosuku lokuqala nolisusa igwele ezindlwini zenu; kuba bonke abadla isonka esinegwele, kususela kolokuqala kude kube lusuku lwesixhenxe, bonqanyulwa bangabikho kwaSirayeli.
16 Ngomhla wokuqala kobakho intlanganiso engcwele, nangomhla wesixhenxe kobakho intlanganiso engcwele kuni. Akuyi kwenziwa msebenzi ngawo, ingengulowo wokudla komntu; nguwo wodwa eningazenzelayo.
17 Nize nigcine umthendeleko wezonka ezingenagwele; kuba kanye ngayo loo mini ndayikhupha imikhosi yenu ezweni laseYiputa; niwugcine loo mhla kwizizukulwana zenu, ube ngummiselo ongunaphakade.
18 Ngeyokuqala inyanga, ngosuku lweshumi elinesine enyangeni leyo, ngokuhlwa, nodla izonka ezingenagwele, kude kuse kusuku lwamashumi omabini analunye lwenyanga leyo, ngokuhlwa.
19 Ze kungafunyanwa gwele ezindlwini zenu iintsuku ezisixhenxe; kuba bonke abadla into enegwele bonqanyulwa bangabikho ebandleni lakwaSirayeli, nokuba ngumphambukeli, nokuba ngozalelwe kuloo ndawo.
20 Yonke into enegwele nize ningayidli; emakhayeni enu onke nodla izonka ezingenagwele.
21 Wawabiza uMoses onke amadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli, wathi kuwo, Hambani niye, nizithabathele ixhwane ngokwemizalwane yenu, nixhele ipasika.
22 Nithabathe isipha sehisope, nisithi nkxu egazini elisengqayini, niqabe emqadini nasemigubasini yomibini ngegazi elisengqayini; ke kuni ze kungaphumi mntu emnyango wendlu yakhe kude kuse.
23 UYehova uya kucanda, awabulale amaYiputa. Akulibona igazi emqadini nasemigubasini yomibini, wogqitha uYehova emnyango, angamvumeli umonakalisi ukuba angene ezindlwini zenu, abulale.
24 Woligcina elo zwi libe ngummiselo kuwe, nakoonyana bakho kude kuse ephakadeni.
25 Nothi, nakufika ezweni aya kuninika uYehova, njengoko watshoyo, niyigcine le nkonzo.
26 Kothi, xa bathe oonyana benu kuni, Iyintoni na le nkonzo kuni?
27 nithi ke, Ngumbingelelo wepasika kuYehova, owagqitha ezindlwini zoonyana bakaSirayeli eYiputa; ekubulaleni kwakhe amaYiputa, wazihlangula izindlu zethu.
28 Bathoba abantu, baqubuda. Bahamba oonyana bakaSirayeli, baya kwenza; njengoko uYehova wabawisela umthetho uMoses noAron, benjenjalo.
29 Kwathi ke phakathi kobusuku, uYehova wawabulala onke amazibulo ezweni laseYiputa, kwathabathela kowamazibulo kaFaro ohleliyo etroneni yakhe, kwasa kowamazibulo omthinjwa osentolongweni engumhadi, namazibulo onke eenkomo.
30 Wavuka uFaro ebusuku, yena nabakhonzi bakhe bonke, namaYiputa onke; kwabakho isikhalo esikhulu eYiputa; kuba akubangakho ndlu ingenamntu ufileyo.
31 Wabiza uMoses noAron ebusuku, wathi, Sukani niphume phakathi kwabantu bam, nina aba noonyana bakaSirayeli, nihambe niye kumkhonza uYehova, njengokutsho kwenu;
32 nempahla yenu emfutshane neenkomo zenu zithabatheni, njengoko natshoyo, nihambe; nam nindisikelele.
33 AmaYiputa ajokisa ukubandulula abantu ngobungxamo kwelo zwe; kuba abesithi, Sonke sesifile.
34 Abantu bayithabatha intlama yabo ingekabi nagwele, imikhumbi yabo yokuxovulela isongelwe ezingutyeni zabo, ibotshelelwe emagxeni abo.
35 Oonyana bakaSirayeli benza ngokwelizwi likaMoses; bacela kumaYiputa iimpahla zesilivere, neempahla zegolide, neengubo.
36 UYehova wabababala abantu phambi kwamaYiputa, abenza ukuba bacele. Bawaphanga ke amaYiputa.
37 Banduluka ke oonyana bakaSirayeli eRameses, baya eSukoti, amadoda eenyawo engathi akumakhulu omathandathu amawaka, ngaphandle kosapho.
38 Kwenyuka ke nabo inkitha engumxube, nempahla emfutshane, neenkomo, imfuyo eninzi kunene.
39 Bosa amaqebengwana angenagwele entlama, ababephume nayo eYiputa, kuba ibingenagwele; kuba bagxothwa eYiputa ababa nakulibala, kananjalo babengazenzelanga mphako.
40 Ke ukuhlala koonyana bakaSirayeli, abakuhlalayo eYiputa, yiminyaka emakhulu mane aneminyaka emanci mathathu.
41 Ekupheleni kweminyaka emakhulu mane, aneminyaka emanci mathathu, kwathi, kanye ngayo loo mini, yaphuma yonke imikhosi kaYehova ezweni laseYiputa.
42 Bubusuku obo bokugcina kukaYehova, kuba wabakhupha ezweni laseYiputa. Bubusuku bukaYehova obo bokugcinwa ngoonyana bakaSirayeli bonke, ezizukulwaneni zabo.
43 Wathi uYehova kuMoses nakuAron, Ummiselo wepasika ngulo: Bonke oonyana bolunye uhlanga abasayi kudla kuyo.
44 Onke amakhoboka, abantu abazuzwe ngemali, uze uwaluse, andule ke ukudla kuyo.
45 Olundwendwe nongumqeshwa akasayi kudla kuyo.
46 Yodlelwa ndlwini-nye; akusayi kusa nto yaloo nyama ngaphandle kwendlu, anisayi kwaphula thambo layo.
47 Lonke ibandla lakwaSirayeli loyenza loo nto.
48 Xa athe owasemzini waphambukela kuwe, wenza ipasika kuYehova, mayaluswe yonke into eyindoda kuye, andule ke ukusondela, ayenze, abe njengozalelwe kwelo zwe; bonke abangaluswanga abasayi kudla kuyo.
49 Woba mnye umyalelo, kozalelwe kwelo zwe, nakowasemzini ophambukele phakathi kwenu.
50 Benza ke bonke oonyana bakaSirayeli; njengoko uYehova wabawisela umthetho uMoses noAron, benjenjalo.
51 Kwathi, ngayo kanye loo mini, uYehova wabakhupha oonyana bakaSirayeli ezweni laseYiputa ngokwemikhosi yabo.

1 UYehova wathetha kuMoses, wathi,
2 Ndingcwalisele onke amazibulo, yonke into evula isizalo phakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli, kumntu nakwinkomo; yeyam.
3 Wathi uMoses ebantwini, Yikhumbuleni le mini niphume ngayo eYiputa, endlwini yobukhoboka; kuba uYehova unikhuphe kule ndawo ngesithe nkqi isandla; ize ke kungadliwa nto inegwele.
4 Lo ngumhla eniphume ngawo ngenyanga enguAbhibhi.
5 Kothi, xa uYehova anifikisileyo ezweni lamaKanan, lamaHiti, lama-Amori, lamaHivi, lamaYebhusi, awalifungela ooyihlo ukubanika, izwe elibaleka amasi nobusi, ukhonze ngale nkonzo kule nyanga:
6 nidle izonka ezingenagwele iintsuku ezisixhenxe; ke usuku lwesixhenxe lungumthendeleko kuYehova;
7 izonka ezingenagwele zodliwa iintsuku ezisixhenxe; kungabonwa kuwe nto inegwele, kungabonwa gwele kuwe emideni yakho yonke.
8 Uze umxelele unyana wakho ngaloo mini, uthi, Ndikwenza oku ngenxa yoko uYehova wakwenzayo kum ekuphumeni kwam eYiputa;
9 kuze kube ngumqondiso kuwe osesandleni sakho, ube sisikhumbuzo phakathi kwamehlo akho, ukuze umyalelo kaYehova ube semlonyeni wakho; kuba uYehova ukukhuphe eYiputa ngesithe nkqi isandla.
10 Uze uwugcine lo mmiselo ngexesha lawo elimisiweyo imihla kamihla.
11 Kothi, xa akufikisileyo uYehova ezweni lamaKanan, njengoko wafungayo kuwe nakooyihlo, wakunika lona,
12 uyidlulisele kuYehova yonke into evula isizalo, into yonke elizibulo lenkomo, oya kuba nayo; amaduna oba ngakaYehova.
13 Into yonke elizibulo le-esile woyikhulula ngokuyimisela ngexhwane; ke ukuba uthe akwayikhulula ngokuyimisela, woyaphula ilungu lentamo. Yonke into elizibulo lomntu koonyana bakho, nayo woyikhulula ngokuyimisela.
14 Kothi, xa unyana wakho akubuzayo ngexesha elizayo, esithi, Yintoni na le nto? uze uthi kuye, UYehova wasikhupha eYiputa, endlwini yobukhoboka, ngesithe nkqi isandla;
15 kwathi, xa uFaro wayelukhuni ukusindulula, uYehova wawabulala onke amazibulo ezweni laseYiputa, ethabathela kwizibulo lomntu, wesa kwizibulo lenkomo; kungenxa yoko, le nto ndibingelela kuYehova yonke into evula isizalo eliduna, ndiyikhulule ngokuyimisela yonke into elizibulo koonyana bam;
16 ibe ngumqondiso esandleni sakho, ibe sisikhumbuzo phakathi kwamehlo akho, kuba uYehova wasikhupha eYiputa ngesithe nkqi isandla.
17 Kwathi, akubandulula uFaro abantu, uThixo akabakhokela ngendlela yelizwe lamaFilisti, nakuba ibimfutshane yona: kuba wathi uThixo, hleze abantu bazohlwaye bakubona imfazwe, babuyele eYiputa.
18 UThixo wabazungulezisa abantu ngendlela yentlango yoLwandle oluBomvu. Banyuka bexhobile oonyana bakaSirayeli, bevela ezweni laseYiputa.
19 UMoses wawathabatha wahamba nawo amathambo kaYosefu; kuba wayebafungisile nokubafungisa oonyana bakaSirayeli, esithi, UThixo uya kunivelela okunene; nize niwanyuse amathambo am, emke nani kule ndawo.
20 Banduluka eSukoti, balalisa e-Etam, enyeleni yentlango.
21 UYehova wahamba phambi kwabo ngomqulu welifu emini, ebakhokela ngendlela; ngomqulu womlilo ebusuku, ebakhanyisela, ukuze bahambe imini nobusuku.
22 Awusukanga umqulu welifu emini, nomqulu womlilo ebusuku, phambi kwabantu.

1 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, wathi,
2 Thetha koonyana bakaSirayeli ukuba bajike, bamise iintente phambi kwePi-hahiroti, phakathi kweMigdoli nolwandle, phambi kweBhahali-tsefon, malunga nayo, nimise ngaselwandle.
3 Uya kuthi uFaro ngoonyana bakaSirayeli, Badidekile ezweni, intlango ibavingcele.
4 Ndoyenza lukhuni intliziyo kaFaro, abasukele, ndizukiseke ngoFaro nangempi yakhe yonke, azi amaYiputa ukuba ndinguYehova. Benjenjalo ke.
5 Waxelelwa ukumkani waseYiputa, ukuba abantu babalekile; yaba yeyimbi intliziyo kaFaro neyabakhonzi bakhe kubantu, bathi, Siyenzele ntoni na le nto, yokusuka simndulule uSirayeli ekusikhonzeni?
6 Wayibopha inqwelo yakhe yokulwa, wabathabatha abantu bakhe, bahamba naye.
7 Wathabatha amakhulu omathandathu eenqwelo zokulwa ezikhethiweyo, neenqwelo zonke zokulwa zaseYiputa, nabaphathi-mikhosi phezu kwazo zonke ziphela.
8 UYehova wayenza lukhuni ke intliziyo kaFaro ukumkani waseYiputa, wabasukela oonyana bakaSirayeli, baye oonyana bakaSirayeli bephume ngesandla esiphakamileyo.
9 AmaYiputa abasukela, enamahashe onke eenqwelo zokulwa kaFaro, nakhwelwayo akhe, nempi yakhe, afika kubo bemise iintente ngaselwandle, ngasePi-hahiroti phambi kweBhahali-tsefon.
10 Wasondela uFaro. Bawaphakamisa amehlo abo oonyana bakaSirayeli, nango amaYiputa efake emva kwabo. Boyika kunene, bakhala oonyana bakaSirayeli kuYehova.
11 Bathi kuMoses, kungokuba bekungekho mangcwaba na eYiputa, le nto usithabathileyo ukuba sifele entlango apha? Yini na ukuba usenze into enje, usikhuphe eYiputa?
12 Asililo na eli ilizwi ebesilithetha kuwe eYiputa, sisithi, Siyeke, siwakhonze amaYiputa? Kuba kube kusilungele kanye ukuba sikhonze amaYiputa, kunokuba sifele entlango apha.
13 Wathi uMoses ebantwini, Musani ukoyika; misani, nilubone usindiso lukaYehova aya kunenzela lona namhla; kuba amaYiputa lawo niwabonileyo namhlanje, anisayi kuphinda niwabone naphakade.
14 UYehova uya kunilwela, ke nina niya kuthi cwaka.
15 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yini na ukuba ukhale kum? Thetha koonyana bakaSirayeli, banduluke.
16 Ke wena, phakamisa intonga yakho, wolule isandla sakho phezu kolwandle, ulwahlule, bahambe oonyana bakaSirayeli phakathi kolwandle, emhlabeni owomileyo.
17 Mna ke, yabona, ndiya kuzenza lukhuni iintliziyo zamaYiputa, angene emva kwabo, ndizukiseke ngoFaro, nangempi yakhe yonke, ngeenqwelo zakhe zokulwa, nangabamahashe bakhe;
18 azi amaYiputa ukuba ndinguYehova, ekuzukisekeni kwam ngoFaro nangeenqwelo zakhe zokulwa nangabamahashe bakhe.
19 Sesuka isithunywa sikaThixo, esibe sihamba phambi kwemfuduka yamaSirayeli, sahamba emva kwayo. Wesuka umqulu welifu phambi kwayo, wema emva kwayo;
20 wathi zinzi phakathi kwempi yamaYiputa, nemfuduka yamaSirayeli. Kwabakho ilifu nobumnyama kumaYiputa, labukhanyisela ubusuku kumaSirayeli; akasondelana ubusuku bonke.
21 UMoses wasolula isandla sakhe phezu kolwandle, walumkisa uYehova ulwandle ngomoya wasempumalanga onamandla, bonke obo busuku, walwenza umhlaba owomileyo ulwandle, ahlulelana amanzi.
22 Bangena oonyana bakaSirayeli elwandle phakathi, kowomileyo; asuka amanzi aba ludonga ngasekunene nangasekhohlo.
23 Asukela amaYiputa, angena emva kwabo elwandle phakathi, enamahashe onke kaFaro, neenqwelo zakhe zokulwa, nabamahashe bakhe.
24 Kwathi ngomlindo wokusa, uYehova waqondela empini yamaYiputa esemqulwini womlilo nelifu; wayidubaduba impi yamaYiputa.
25 Wayidonyula imilenze yeenqwelo zawo zokulwa, aziqhuba nzima. Athi amaYiputa, Masisabe phambi kwamaSirayeli, kuba uYehova uyawalwela, esilwa namaYiputa.
26 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yolula isandla sakho phezu kolwandle, amanzi abuyele phezu kwamaYiputa, phezu kweenqwelo zawo zokulwa, naphezu kwabamahashe bawo.
27 Wasolula uMoses isandla sakhe phezu kolwandle, ulwandle lwabuyela ebumeni balo, ukuthi qhiphu kokusa; asaba amaYiputa asinga kulo. UYehova wawavuthululela amaYiputa phakathi elwandle.
28 Abuya amanzi, azigubungela iingqwelo zokulwa, nabamahashe, nempi yonke kaFaro eyayingene emva kwawo elwandle; akwasala noko amnye kuwo.
29 Bona oonyana bakaSirayeli bahamba emhlabeni owomileyo phakathi elwandle; asuka amanzi aba ludonga ngasekunene nangasekhohlo.
30 Wawasindisa uYehova ngaloo mini amaSirayeli esandleni samaYiputa; amaSirayeli awabona amaYiputa efile elunxwemeni lolwandle.
31 Asibona amaSirayeli isandla esikhulu asibonakalalisileyo uYehova kumaYiputa. Bamoyika, abantu uYehova, bakholwa nguYehova, nanguMoses umkhonzi wakhe.

1 Waza uMoses wahlabela le ngoma kuYehova, enoonyana bakaSirayeli, batsho ukuthi: Ndiya kuhlabela kuYehova, kuba enobungangamsha obukhulu, Ihashe nomkhweli walo ulizulumbele elwandle.
2 Uqhayiya lam, ungoma yam nguYehova; Waba lusindiso kum. UloThixo wam endimzukisayo, UThixo kabawo endimphakamisayo.
3 UYehova yindoda elwayo, UYehova ligama lakhe.
4 Iinqwelo zokulwa zikaFaro nempi yakhe waziphosa elwandle; Abahleliweyo kubaphathi-mikhosi bakhe batshoniswe eLwandle oluBomvu.
5 Amanzi enzonzobila abagubungele. Behlela ezinzulwini njengelitye.
6 Isandla sakho sokunene, Yehova, sivethe amandla; Isandla sakho sokunene, Yehova, sivikiva utshaba.
7 Ngobukhulu bobungangamsha bakho ubagungxule abachasi bakho; Ukhupha ukuvutha kwakho, kubadle bona njengeendiza.
8 Ngokufutha kwamathatha akho afunjwa amanzi, Yema njengemfumba imiqukuqela. Ajiya amanzi enzonzobila embilinini yolwandle.
9 Lwathi utshaba, Ndiyasukela, ndiyafumana, Ndaba ixhoba, umxhelo wam uyazanelisa kubo; Ndirhola ikrele lam, siya kubagqogqa isandla sam.
10 Wafutha ngomoya wakho, lwabagubungela ulwandle; Bazulumbeka njengelothe emanzini angangamsha.
11 Ngubani na onjengawe phakathi koothixo, Yehova? Ngubani na onjengawe, wena uvethe ubungcwele, Woyikekayo ezindumisweni, wenzayo ngokubalulekileyo?
12 Wolula isandla sakho sokunene, Umhlaba uyabaginya.
13 Uyabakhokela ngenceba yakho abantu aba ubahlawuleleyo, ubakhululeyo. Ngoqilima lwakho ubathundezela ekhayeni lakho elingcwele.
14 Zivile izizwe, ziyangqunga, Abemi baseFilisti babanjwe kukuzibhijabhija,
15 Zaza zakhwankqa izikhulu zakwaEdom; Iinjengele zakwaMowabhi zabanjwa kukuthuthumela, Batha amandla bonke abemi belakwaKanan.
16 Bawelwa kukudenga nakukunkwantya, Ngenxa yobukhulu bengalo yakho bathi cwaka njengelitye, Bade badlule abantu bakho, Yehova, Bade badlule abo bantu ubazuzileyo.
17 Uya kubangenisa, ubatyale entabeni yelifa lakho, Endaweni oyenzele ukuba uhlale kuyo, Yehova, Engcweleni eziyilungisileyo izandla zakho.
18 UYehova uya kuba ngukumkani ngonaphakade kanaphakade.
19 Kuba langena elwandle ihashe likaFaro nenqwelo yakhe yokulwa, nabamahashe bakhe. UYehova wawabuyisela phezu kwabo amanzi olwandle; ke bona oonyana bakaSirayeli bahamba kowomileyo, phakathi elwandle.
20 UMiriyam umprofetikazi, udade boAron, wathabatha ingqongqo ngesandla sakhe; aphuma onke amankazana emva kwakhe, eneengqongqo engqungqa.
21 Wawaphendula uMiriyam wathi, Vumani kuYehova, kuba enobungangamsha obukhulu; Ihashe nomkhweli walo ulizulumbele elwandle.
22 UMoses wawandulula amaSirayeli, emka eLwandle oluBomvu, aphuma aya entlango yaseShure; ahamba iintsuku zantathu entlango, akafumana manzi.
23 Afika eMara, akaba nakuwasela amanzi aseMara, kuba ayekrakra; ngenxa yoko igama laloo ndawo kwathiwa yiMara.
24 Abantu bamkrokrela uMoses, besithi, Siya kusela ntoni na? Wadanduluka kuYehova.
25 UYehova wambonisa umthi; wawuphosa emanzini, aba mnandi amanzi. Khona apho wabamisela ummiselo nesiko, khona apho wabavavanya.
26 Wathi, Ukuba uthe waliphulaphula izwi likaYehova uThixo wakho, wenza okuthe tye phambi kwakhe, wayibekela indlebe imithetho yakhe, wayigcina yonke imimiselo yakhe: andiyi kubeka nasinye isifo phezu kwakho endisibekileyo phezu kwamaYiputa; kuba ndinguYehova, igqirha lakho.

1 Lonke ibandla loonyana bakaSirayeli landuluka e-Elim, lafika entlango yaseSin, ephakathi kwe-Elim, neSinayi, ngosuku lweshumi elinesihlanu lwenyanga yesibini yokuphuma kwabo ezweni laseYiputa.
2 Labakrokrela ooMoses noAron lonke ibandla loonyana bakaSirayeli entlango apho.
3 Bathi oonyana bakaSirayeli kubo, Akwaba besife sisandla sikaYehova ezweni laseYiputa, xa sasihleli ngasezimbizeni zenyama, sisidla isonka sada sahlutha; ngokuba nisikhuphele kule ntlango, ukuze nisibhubhise sonke esi sikhungu ngendlala.
4 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Uyabona, ndiya kuninisela isonka sivela ezulwini; baphume abantu, babuthe isabelo semini esilingene imini, ukuze ndibalinge ukuba bohamba ngomyalelo wam, abayi kuhamba ngawo, kusini na.
5 Kothi ngemini yesithandathu, balungise oko bakuzisileyo; koba ngumlinganiselo ophindwe kabini kunoko bathe bakubutha imihla ngemihla.
6 Wathi uMoses noAron koonyana bakaSirayeli bonke, Ngokuhlwa niya kwazi ukuba nguYehova owanikhuphayo ezweni laseYiputa;
7 kusasa niya kububona ubuqaqawuli bukaYehova, ekubeni ekuvile ukumkrokrela kwenu uYehova. Thina besingoobani na ukuba nisikrokrele?
8 Wathi uMoses, Niya kububona ekuthini uYehova aninike inyama ngokuhlwa, nidle isonka kusasa, nihluthe; ekubeni uYehova ekuvile ukukrokra kwenu enimkrokrela ngako. Ke thina singoobani na? Anikrokreli thina, nikrokrela uYehova.
9 Wathi uMoses kuAron, Yithi kwibandla lonke loonyana bakaSirayeli, Sondelani phambi koYehova; kuba ukuvile ukukrokra kwenu.
10 Ke kaloku, xa wayethetha uAron kwibandla lonke loonyana bakaSirayeli, bakhangela entlango, nabo ubuqaqawuli bukaYehova bubonakala efini.
11 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, wathi,
12 Ndikuvile ukukrokra koonyana bakaSirayeli. Thetha nabo uthi, Lakutshona ilanga nodla inyama, kusasa nohlutha sisonka; nazi ukuba ndinguYehova uThixo wenu.
13 Kwathi ngokuhlwa zenyuka izagwityi, zayigubungela iminquba yonke; kusasa kwabakho umbethe olele ngeenxa zonke eminqubeni.
14 Wenyuka umbethe obulele, nanko kukho phezu komhlaba entlango intwana apha ecolekileyo, ejiyileyo, encinanana njengeqabaka emhlabeni.
15 Bayibona oonyana bakaSirayeli, bathi omnye komnye, Yintoni? Kuba babengazi ukuba yintoni na. Wathi uMoses kubo, Sesi sonka aninika sona uYehova, ukuba sibe kukudla.
16 Le yiloo nto wawisa umthetho ngayo uYehova, wathi, Buthani yona, elowo ngangokudla kwakhe, ihomere ngentloko yomntu, ngokwenani labantu, elowo athabathele abasententeni yakhe.
17 Benjenjalo oonyana bakaSirayeli; babutha omnye kakhulu, omnye kancinane.
18 Balinganisela ngehomere; akagqithisa obuthe kakhulu; akasilela obuthe kancinane; babutha elowo ngangokudla kwakhe.
19 Wathi kubo uMoses, Umntu makangabeki mbeko.
20 Abamphulaphulanga uMoses. Inxenye yayibeka umbeko; yabola, yaba neempethu, yanuka. UMoses waba noburhalarhume kubo.
21 Bayibutha imiso ngemiso, elowo ngangokudla kwakhe; lathi lakufudumala ilanga yanyibilika.
22 Kwathi ngemini yesithandathu, babutha isonka semihla emibini, iihomere ezimbini mntwini mnye. Zangena zonke izikhulu zebandla, zamxelela uMoses.
23 Wathi kuzo, Yiyo loo nto ayithethileyo uYehova, Ngomso luphumlo; yisabatha engcwele kuYehova; yosani enikosayo, phekani enikuphekayo, zibekeleni yonke into eseleyo, igcinwe kude kuse.
24 Bayibeka ke kwada kwasa, njengoko uMoses wabawisela umthetho; ayanuka, akwabakho mpethu kuyo.
25 Wathi uMoses Yidleni namhla; kuba namhla yisabatha kuYehova; namhla aniyi kuyifumana endle.
26 Noyibutha imihla emithandathu; ngomhla wesixhenxe yisabatha; ayi kubakho ngawo.
27 Kuthe ngomhla wesixhenxe, kwaphuma inxenye yabantu, yaya kubutha, ayafumana nto.
28 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Kuya kuda kube nini na, ningavumi ukuyigcina imithetho yam nemiyalelo yam?
29 Niyabona ke, uYehova uninike isabatha; kungenxa yoko athe ngomhla wesithandathu waninika isonka semihla emibini. Hlalani elowo endaweni yakhe; makungaphumi mntu endaweni yakhe ngomhla wesixhenxe.
30 Baye bephumla ke abantu ngomhla wesixhenxe.
31 Indlu kaSirayeli yathi igama lale nto yimana. Yayinjengembewu yekoriyandire, imhlophe, isongo sayo sinjengezonkana ezinobusi.
32 Wathi uMoses, Nantsi into awise umthetho ngayo uYehova: zalisani ihomere ngayo, igcinelwe izizukulwana zenu, ukuze zisibone isonka endinidlise sona entlango, ekunikhupheni ezweni laseYiputa.
33 Wathi uMoses kuAron, Thabatha isitya sibe sinye, ugalele ihomere kuso sizale yimana, uyibeke phambi koYehova, igcinelwe izizukulwana zenu;
34 igcinwe njengoko uYehova wamwisela uMoses umthetho ngako. Wayibeka uAron phambi kwesingqino, ukuba igcinwe.
35 Bayidla oonyana bakaSirayeli imana iminyaka emashumi mane, bada bafika ezweni elimiweyo; bayidla imana bada bafika emdeni welizwe lakwaKanan
36 Ke ihomere isisahlulo seshumi se-efa.

1 Landuluka lonke ibandla loonyana bakaSirayeli entlango yaseSin ngokweehambo zabo, ngelizwi likaYehova; bazimisa iintente eRefidim. Akwabakho manzi okuselwa ngabantu.
2 Babambana abantu noMoses, bathi, Sinike amanzi, sisele. Wathi uMoses kubo, Yini na ukuba nibambane nam? Yini na ukuba nimlinge uYehova?
3 Banxanelwa amanzi apho abantu; abantu bamkrokrela uMoses, bathi, Yini na ukuba usinyuse siphume eYiputa, nosapho lwethu, nemfuyo yethu, uze kusibhubhisa ngenxano?

5 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Gqithela phambi kwabantu, uthabathe amadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli abe nawe; uthi nentonga yakho, owawubetha ngayo umlambo, uyiphathe esandleni sakho, uhambe.
6 Yabona, ndiya kuma phambi kwakho khona, phezu kweliwa eHorebhe; uze ulibethe iliwa; kophuma amanzi kulo, basele abantu. Wenjenjalo ke uMoses phambi kwawo amadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli.
7 Wathi igama laloo ndawo yiMasa neMeribha, ngenxa yokubambana koonyana bakaSirayeli, nangenxa yokumlinga kwabo uYehova, besithi, UYehova ukho na phakathi kwethu, akakho, kusini na?
8 UAmaleki weza, walwa noSirayeli eRefidim.

11 Kwathi, xa aziphakamisileyo uMoses izandla, kweyisa uSirayeli; kwathi xa azihlisileyo izandla, kweyisa uAmaleki.
12 Izandla zikaMoses zadinwa. Bathabatha ilitye, balibeka phantsi kwakhe, wahlala kulo; bathi ooAron noHure bazixhasa izandla zakhe, omnye engapha, nomnye engaphaya. Zazimaseka izandla zakhe, lada ilanga latshona.
13 UYoshuwa wamchitha uAmaleki nabantu bakowabo ngohlangothi lwekrele.
14 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Kubhale oku kube sisikhumbuzo encwadini, ukuthethe ezindlebeni zikaYoshuwa; ngokuba ndiya kusicima impela isikhumbuzo sika-Amaleki phantsi kwamazulu.
15 UMoses wakha isibingelelo, wathi igama laso nguYehova-ibhanile-yam.
16 Wathi, Isandla siphakanyiselwe etroneni kaYehova, ukuba uYehova uya kulwa imfazwe noAmaleki isizukulwana ngesizukulwana.

1 UYitro, umbingeleli wakwaMidiyan, uyise womkaMoses, wayiva yonke into uThixo abeyenzele uMoses, namaSirayeli abantu bakhe, ukuba uYehova uwakhuphile amaSirayeli eYiputa.
2 UYitro, uyise womkaMoses, wamthabatha uTsipora, umkaMoses, emveni kokuba ebemndulule,
3 noonyana bakhe bobabini; igama lomnye lalinguGershom, kuba wathi, Bendingumphambukeli ezweni lolunye uhlanga; igama lomnye lalinguEliyezere,
4 kuba wathi, UThixo kabawo ubengumncedi wam, wandihlangula ekreleni likaFaro.
5 UYitro, uyise womkaMoses, weza ke noonyana bakhe nomkakhe, kuMoses entlango, apho wayemise khona intente, entabeni kaThixo.
6 Wathi kuMoses, Mna Yitro, unguyihlo, ndize kuwe, ndinomkakho enoonyana bakhe bobabini.
7 Waphuma uMoses, waya kumkhawulela uyise womkakhe, waqubuda, wamanga; babuzana impilo, bangena ententeni.
8 UMoses wambalisela uyise womkakhe yonke into uYehova abeyenzile kuFaro nakumaYiputa ngenxa kaSirayeli; nenkxamleko yonke abayifumanayo endleleni, nokuhlangulwa kwabo nguYehova.
9 Wavuya uYitro akukuva konke ukulunga abekwenzile uYehova kuSirayeli, ngokumhlangula esandleni samaYiputa.
10 Wathi uYitro, Makabongwe uYehova owanihlangulayo esandleni samaYiputa, nasesandleni sikaDaro; owabahlangulayo abantu, baphuma phantsi kwesandla samaYiputa.
11 Ngoku ndiyazi ukuba uYehova mkhulu koothixo bonke; ewe, kwakuloo nto amaYiputa abewakhukhumalele ngayo amaSirayeli.
12 UYitro, uyise womkaMoses, wamthabathela uThixo idini elinyukayo nemibingelelo; weza uAron namadoda amakhulu onke akwaSirayeli, esiza kudla isonka noyise womkaMoses phambi koThixo.
13 Kwathi ngengomso, uMoses wahlala wathetha amatyala abantu; abantu baxhontela kuMoses, kususela kusasa kwada kwangokuhlwa.
14 Wayibona uyise womkaMoses yonke into abeyenza ebantwini, wathi, Iyintoni na le nto uyenzayo ebantwini? Kungani na, le nto uhlala wedwa, bathi bona bonke abantu baxhontele kuwe, kususela kusasa kude kuhlwe?
15 Wathi uMoses kuyise womkakhe, Kungokuba abantu besiza kum ukuba ndibacelele icebo kuThixo;
16 xa banendawo, beza kum ukuba ndigwebe phakathi komntu nommelwane wakhe, ndibazise imimiselo kaThixo nemiyalelo yakhe.
17 Wathi uyise womkaMoses kuye,
18 Ayilungile le nto uyenzayo. Uya kuzigqiba uphele amandla, naba bantu unabo; kuba lo msebenzi unzima kuwe, akunakuwenza wedwa.
19 Phulaphula ngoko izwi lam, ndikuphe iqhinga; uThixo woba nawe. Wena yiba ngumlomo wabantu kuThixo, uzise izinto zabo kuThixo;
20 ubafundise imimiselo nemiyalelo, ubazise indlela abaya kuhamba ngayo, nomsebenzi abaya kuwenza.
21 Uze uzikhangelele ebantwini bonke amadoda anobunkunkqele ekuthetheni amatyala, amoyikayo uThixo, amadoda anyanisileyo, ayithiyileyo inzuzo embi, uwamise phezu kwabo, abe ngabathetheli-waka, nabathetheli-khulu, nabathetheli bamashumi ngamahlanu, nabathetheli bamashumi ngamanye;
22 bathethe amatyala abantu ngamaxesha onke; zithi izinto zonke ezinkulu bazizise kuwe; zonke ezincinane bazigwebe bona, ukuze kube lula kuwe, bakuthwalise.
23 Ukuba uthe wayenza loo nto, waza wakuwisela umthetho uThixo, woba nako ukuma, bathi naba bantu bonke bafike endaweni yabo benoxolo.
24 UMoses waliphulaphula izwi loyise womkakhe, wayenza into yonke abeyithethile.
25 UMoses wanyula amadoda anobunkunkqele ekuthetheni amatyala kuwo onke amaSirayeli, wawenza iintloko phezu kwabantu, aba ngabathetheli-waka, nabathetheli-khulu, nabathetheli bamashumi ngamahlanu, nabathetheli bamashumi ngamanye.
26 Bathetha amatyala abantu ngamaxesha onke; izinto ezinqabileyo bazizisa kuMoses, zonke ezincinane bazigweba bona.
27 UMoses wamndulula uyise womkakhe, waya elizweni lakowabo.

9 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yabona, ndiyeza kuwe ndiselifini elingqingqwa, ukuze beve abantu ekuthetheni kwam nawe, bakholwe kuwe ngonaphakade. Wawaxela ke uMoses amazwi abantu kuYehova.
10 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yiya ebantwini, ubangcwalise namhla nangomso, bazihlambe iingubo zabo, balunge ngomhla wesithathu;

13 Makungafiki sandla kuye; makaxulutywe ngamatye mpela, athi mhlawumbi atolwe nokutolwa; nokuba yinto ezizitho zine, nokuba ngumntu, akayi kuphila. Sakolula isandi sesigodlo ukuhlokoma, banganyuka entabeni bona.
14 Wehla uMoses entabeni, waya ebantwini, wabangcwalisa abantu; bazihlamba iingubo zabo.
15 Wathi ebantwini, Ize nizilungiselele umhla wesithathu, ningasondeli ebafazini.
16 Kwathi ngomhla wesithathu, kwakusa, kwabakho iindudumo, nemibane, nelifu elinzima phezu kwentaba, nesandi sesigodlo esomeleleyo kunene; bagubha bonke abantu abaseminqubeni.
17 UMoses wabakhupha abantu eminqubeni, baya kumkhawulela uThixo; bema emazantsi entaba.
18 Intaba yeSinayi yaba ngumsi yonke iphela, kuba uYehova wehla phezu kwayo esemlilweni. Umsi wayo wenyuka njengomsi weziko lemfutho; yanyikima kunene yonke intaba.
19 Kwabakho isandi sesigodlo esaya sisomelela kakhulu; wathetha uMoses, uThixo wamphendula ngesandi.
20 Wehla ke uYehova phezu kwentaba yeSinayi, encotsheni yentaba; uYehova wambizela uMoses encotsheni yentaba leyo; wenyuka ke uMoses.
21 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yihla, ubaqononondise abantu, hleze batyhobozele kuYehova, bakhangele, kwenzakale into eninzi kubo.
22 Kananjalo ababingeleleli abasondelayo kuYehova, mabazingcwalise, hleze uYehova ababhubhise.
23 Wathi uMoses kuYehova, Abantu abanakunyuka, baye entabeni yeSinayi; kuba wena wasiqononondisa wathi, Yimisele imida intaba, uyingcwalise.
24 Wathi uYehova kuye, Hamba uhle, uze unyuke wena ninoAron; ke ababingeleli nabantu mabangatyhobozi benyuke beze kuYehova, hleze ababhubhise.

3 Ukuba lithe leza lodwa, lophuma lodwa; ukuba belithe leza liyindoda enomfazi, umkalo wophuma nalo.
4 Ukuba ke inkosi yalo ithe yalizekela umfazi, walizalela oonyana, nokuba ziintombi: umfazi lowo nabantwana balo boba ngabenkosi yalo, liphume lona lodwa.
5 Ukuba lithe eli khoboka, Ndiyayithanda inkosi yam, nomkam, nabantwana bam, andiyi kuphuma ndikhululekile:

7 Xa ke umntu athe wathengisa ngentombi yakhe, yaba likhobokazana, mayingaphumi ngokokuphuma kwamakhoboka lawo.
8 Ke ukuba ithe ayayikholisa inkosi yayo, ebizimisele yona, yoyivumela ukuba ikhululwe ngentlawulelo; ke ayiyi kuba nagunya lakuthengisa ngayo kubantu bolunye uhlanga, ukuba iyitshinizele.

20 Xa athe umntu wabetha isicaka sakhe, nokuba sisicakakazi sakhe ngentonga, safa ngesandla sakhe: sophindezelwa ngenene.

29 Wowathwala uAron amagama oonyana bakaSirayeli elubengweni lwesigwebo phezu kwentliziyo yakhe, ekungeneni kwakhe engcweleni, luhlale lusisikhumbuzo phambi koYehova.

23 nentendana yesonka, nomqhathane ogalelwe ioli ube mnye, nesonkana esisicaba sibe sinye, engobozini yezonka ezingenagwele eziphambi koYehova.
24 Wozibeka zonke ezo zinto ezandleni zika-Aron, nasezandleni zoonyana bakhe, uzitshangatshangise, zibe ngumtshangatshangiso phambi koYehova;
25 uzithabathe ezandleni zabo, uqhumisele ngazo esibingelelweni, phezu kwedini elinyukayo, zibe livumba elithozamisayo phambi koYehova. Oko kukudla kwasemlilweni kuYehova.
26 Uze uthabathe incum yenkunzi yemvu yokumisela uAron, uyitshangatshangise ibe ngumtshangatshangiso phambi koYehova, sibe sisabelo sakho eso.
27 Woyingcwalisa incum yomtshangatshangiso otshangatshangisiweyo, nomlenze womrhumo orhunyiweyo, enkunzini yemvu yokumisela uAron noonyana bakhe;
28 ibe yeka-Aron noonyana bakhe; ibe ngummiselo ongunaphakade, iphuma koonyana bakaSirayeli, kuba ingumrhumo. Woba ngumrhumo ophuma koonyana bakaSirayeli emibingelelweni yabo yoxolo, umrhumo wabo kuYehova.
29 Izambatho ezingcwele ezikuAron zoba zezoonyana bakhe emva kwakhe, bathanjiswe ngeoli bezambethe, bamiselwe kuzo.
30 Lowo ungumbingeleli esikhundleni sakhe, koonyana bakhe, wozambatha imihla esixhenxe ekungeneni kwakhe ententeni yokuhlangana, ukuba alungiselele engcweleni.
31 Inkunzi yemvu yokumisela uze uyithabathe, uyipheke inyama yayo endaweni engcwele;
32 bayidle ooAron noonyana bakhe inyama yenkunzi yemvu, kwanesonka esisengobozini, emnyango wentente yokuhlangana.
33 Ezo zinto, bekucanyagushwe ngazo, ukubamisela nokubangcwalisa, mabazidle; owasemzini makangazidli, kuba zingcwele.
34 Ukuba kuthe kwasala nto enyameni yokumisela nasezonkeni, kwada kwasa, uze uyitshise ngomlilo loo nto iseleyo; ingadliwa, kuba ingcwele.
35 Uze wenjenje kuAron nakoonyana bakhe ngokweento zonke endikuwisele umthetho ngazo; wobamisela iintsuku zibe sixhenxe.
36 Uze wenze idini lesono ngenkunzi entsha imini ngemini, ukuze kucanyagushwe; isibingelelo usihlambulule isono ekusicamagusheleni kwakho, usithambise, singcwaliswe.
37 Imihla yoba sixhenxe isibingelelo usicamagushela, usingcwalise, sibe sisibingelelo esiyingcwele kangcwele. Zonke izinto ezisichukumisayo isibingelelo eso zoba ngcwele.
38 Yiyo ke le into oya kuyibingelela esibingelelweni: ziimvana ezimnyaka mnye zibe mbini, imini ngemini amaxesha onke.
39 Enye imvana woyibingelela kusasa, eyesibini imvana uyibingelele lakutshona ilanga.
40 Kwimvana yokuqala uze wenze isahlulo seshumi se-efa yomgubo ocoliweyo, ugalelwe ioli engqushiweyo esisahlulo sesine sehin, ndawonye nomnikelo othululwayo osisahlulo sesine sehin yewayini.
41 Eyesibini imvana woyibingelela lakutshona ilanga, uyenze ngokomnikelo wokudla wakusasa, nangokomnikelo walo othululwayo, ibe livumba elithozamisayo, ukudla kwasemlilweni kuYehova.
42 Elo loba lidini elinyukayo lamaxesha onke kwizizukulwana zenu, emnyango wentente yokuhlangana phambi koYehova, apho ndiya kuhlangana nani khona, ndithethe nawe.
43 Khona apho ndohlangana noonyana bakaSirayeli, bangcwaliswe ngobuqaqawuli bam;
44 ndiyingcwalise intente yokuhlangana nesibingelelo, noAron noonyana bakhe ndibangcwalise, babe ngababingeleli bam.
45 Ndohlala phakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli, ndibe nguThixo wabo;

11 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi,

14 Bonke abagqithela kwababaliweyo, bethabathela kominyaka imashumi mabini ezelwe, benyusa, mabamnike uYehova umrhumo.
15 Isityebi asiyi kugqithisa, nosweleyo akayi kubetha nganeno kwesiqingatha seshekele, ukumnika umrhumo uYehova, ukucamagushela imiphefumlo yenu.
16 Uze uyithabathe imali yokucamagusha koonyana bakaSirayeli, uyinikele enkonzweni yentente yokuhlangana; ukuze ibe sisikhumbuzo koonyana bakaSirayeli, phambi koYehova, ukucamagushela imiphefumlo yenu.

20 Ekungeneni kwabo ententeni yokuhlangana bohlamba ngamanzi, bangafi; nasekusondeleni kwabo esibingelelweni, besiza kulungiselela nokuqhumisela ngokudla kwasemlilweni kuYehova;
21 bohlamba ke izandla zabo neenyawo zabo, ukuze bangafi; ibe ngummiselo ongunaphakade kubo, kuye lo, nakwimbewu yakhe kwizizukulwana zabo.
22 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses esithi,
23 Thabathela kuwe ubulawu bohlobo: imore, ezivuzelayo ngokwayo, engamakhulu amahlanu eeshekele; isinamon enobulawu ibe sisiqingatha soko, amakhulu abe mabini anamanci mahlanu; nekalamo evumba limnandi, amakhulu abe mabini anamanci mahlanu;

30 UAron noonyana bakhe uze ubathambise, ubangcwalise, babe ngababingeleli kum.
31 Wothetha koonyana bakaSirayeli, uthi, Yoba yioli engcwele yokuthambisa kum le, kwizizukulwana zenu.
32 Ize ingagalelwa nyameni yamntu; uze ungenzi enjengayo ngomlinganiso wayo; ingcwele yona, mayibe ngcwele kuni.
33 Umntu osukuba eqhola enjengayo, nosukuba ethabatha kuyo ayinike ongengowakuni, wonqanyulwa, angabikho ebantwini bakowabo.
34 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Zithabathele ubulawu, istorakis, neonike, negalebhana; ubulawu obo bube nentlaka emhlophe engangxengelelweyo, ibe yimilinganiso elinganayo;
35 wenze ngabo isiqhumiso esiqholiweyo, umsebenzi womqholi, sigalelwe ityuwa, sihlambulukile, singcwele.
36 Woyisila inxenye yazo icoleke, ucaphule, ubeke phambi kwesingqino ententeni yokuhlangana, apho ndiya kuhlangana nawe khona; yoba yingcwele kangcwele kuni.
37 Isiqhumiso eso, oya kusenza ngokomlinganiso waso, ize ningazenzeli okwenu; kuwe soba yingcwele kuYehova.

Isahluko 32

1 Ke babona abantu ukuba uMoses ulibele, akehli entabeni; bababizela ndawonye abantu kuAron, bathi kuye, Sukume, usenzele uthixo oya kuhamba phambi kwethu; kuba lo Moses, le ndoda yasinyusayo ezweni laseYiputa, asazi ukuba uhlelwe yintoni na.
2 Wathi uAron kubo, Qhawulani amajikazi egolide, asezindlebeni zabafazi benu, noonyana benu, neentombi zenu, niwazise kum.
3 Bawaqhawula ke abantu bonke amajikazi egolide abesezindlebeni zabo, bawazisa kuAron.
4 Wawathabatha ezandleni zabo, wayikrola igolide ngentlabo, wayenza ithole elityhidiweyo. Bathi, Nanko uthixo wakho, Sirayeli, okunyusileyo ezweni laseYiputa!
5 Wabona uAron, wakha isibingelelo phambi kwalo; wadanduluka uAron wathi, Ngumthendeleko kuYehova ngomso.
6 Bavuka kusasa ngengomso, banyusa amadini anyukayo, basondeza imibingelelo yoxolo; bahlala phantsi abantu, badla basela, besuka bema, badlala.
7 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Hamba uhle; kuba abantu bakho, owabanyusayo ezweni laseYiputa, bonakalisile;
8 batyeke msinya endleleni endabawisela umthetho ngayo; bazenzele ithole elityhidiweyo, balinqula, babingelela kulo, bathi, Nanko uthixo wakho, Sirayeli, okunyusileyo ezweni laseYiputa.
9 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Ndibakhangele aba bantu; uyabona, ngabantu abantamo ilukhuni.
10 Kaloku ndiyeke, uvuthe umsindo wam kubo, ndibadle, ndenze wena uhlanga olukhulu.
11 UMoses wambongoza uYehova uThixo wakhe, wathi, Yini na, Yehova, ukuba uvuthe umsindo wakho kubantu bakho, obakhuphileyo ezweni laseYiputa ngamandla amakhulu, nangesandla esithe nkqi?
12 Yini na ukuba amaYiputa atsho ukuthi, Wabakhuphela ububi, ukuze ababulalele ezintabeni, abagqibele bemke emhlabeni? Buya ekuvutheni komsindo wakho, uzohlwaye ngobubi obo ngenxa yabantu bakho.
13 Khumbula uAbraham noIsake noSirayeli, abakhonzi bakho, owazifunga ngokwakho kubo, wathi kubo, Ndiya kuyandisa imbewu yenu ibe njengeenkwenkwezi zezulu, neli lizwe lonke ndithethileyo ngalo, ndiya kulinika imbewu yenu, ilidle ilifa ngonaphakade.
14 Wazohlwaya ke uYehova ngobubi abethe uya kubenza ebantwini bakhe.
15 Wajika uMoses, wehla entabeni, enamacwecwe omabini esingqino esandleni sakhe, amacwecwe lawo ebhalwe ngamacala omabini, ebhalwe ngapha nangapha.
16 Amacwecwe lawo ebengumsebenzi kaThixo, nombhalo lowo ubungumbhalo kaThixo ukroliwe emacwecweni.
17 Waliva uYoshuwa izwi labantu ekudumeni kwabo, wathi kuMoses, Lilizwi lemfazwe eminqubeni.
18 Wathi yena, Asilizwi lakuduma kwabeyisayo, asilizwi lakukhala kwabeyiswayo; lilizwi labahlabelayo nabavumayo, endilivayo mna.
19 Kwathi, xa asondelayo eminqubeni, walibona ithole nomdudo. Wavutha umsindo kaMoses, wawalahla amacwecwe, wawaqhekeza emazantsi entaba.
20 Walithabatha ithole ababelenzile, walitshisa ngomlilo, walisila lada lacoleka, waligcwayela emanzini, waseza oonyana bakaSirayeli.
21 Wathi uMoses kuAron, Benze ntoni na aba bantu kuwe, ukuba ubazisele isono esikhulu kangaka?
22 Wathi uAron, Umsindo wenkosi yam mawungavuthi. Wena uyabazi aba bantu, ukuba banobubi.
23 Bathi kum, Senzele uthixo oya kuhamba phambi kwethu; kuba lo Moses, le ndoda yasinyusayo ezweni laseYiputa, asazi ukuba uhlelwe yintoni na.
24 Ndathi kubo, Ubani onegolide makayiqhawule; bandinika ke. Ndayiphosa emlilweni kwaphuma eli thole.
25 Wababona uMoses abantu, ukuba baqhawule umkhala (kuba uAron ebebaqhawulisile umkhala, ukuba babe yintlekisa phakathi kwabo bachasene nabo);
26 wema uMoses ekungeneni eminqubeni, wathi, OngakuYehova makeze kum apha. Bantontelana kuye bonke oonyana bakaLevi.
27 Wathi kubo, Utsho uYehova uThixo wakwaSirayeli, ukuthi, Mabanxibe elowo ikrele lakhe ethangeni lakhe, bathunge bephuma emasangweni eminquba, babulale elowo umzalwana wakhe, elowo uwabo, elowo ummelwane wakhe.
28 Benza oonyana bakaLevi ngokwelizwi likaMoses; kwawa ebantwini loo mini ngathi ngamawaka omathathu amadoda.
29 Wathi uMoses, Zimiseleni namhla kuYehova, ukuba umntu achase unyana wakhe nomzalwana wakhe, ithotywe namhla intsikelelo phezu kwenu.
30 Kwathi ngengomso, uMoses wathi ebantwini, Nonile nina, nenza isono esikhulu; ndiya kunyuka ngoku ndiye kuYehova; mhlawumbi ndingacamagusha ngenxa yesono senu.
31 UMoses wabuya waya kuYehova, wathi, Yoo! Aba bantu bonile, benza isono esikhulu, bazenzela uthixo ngegolide.
32 Khawusixolele ngoko isono sabo; ukuba akunakuba njalo, wose undicima encwadini yakho oyibhalileyo.
33 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Ubani osukuba onile kum, ndiya kucima yena encwadini yam.

4 Baliva ke abantu elo lizwi libi, benza isijwili; akwabakho mntu uzinxibayo izivatho zakhe.

6 Bazijaca oonyana bakaSirayeli izivatho zabo, beqalela entabeni yaseHorebhe.
7 Wayithabatha uMoses intente, wayitwabululela ngaphandle kweminquba, kude neminquba, wathi yintente yokuhlangana. Kwathi ke, bonke abamfunayo uYehova baphuma, baya ententeni leyo yokuhlangana ingaphandle kweminquba.

12 Wathi uMoses kuYehova, Uyabona, uthi kum, Nyusa aba bantu; ke wena akundazisanga lowo uya kundithuma naye; kanti ke uthe, Ndikwazile ngegama, kananjalo ndikubabale.
13 Ngoko ukuba undibabale, khawundazise indlela yakho, ukuze ndikwazi, ukuze undibabale, ukhumbule ukuba olu hlanga lungabantu bakho.
14 Wathi, Ubuso bam bohamba nawe, ndikunike ukuphumla.

16 Kuya kwaziwa kwaziwe ngantoni na khona, ukuba undibabale mna nabantu bakho? Akungokuthi na uhambe nathi, sibaluleke thina, mna nabantu bakho, ebantwini bonke abaphezu komhlaba?
17 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Nale nto uyithethileyo ndiya kuyenza; kuba ndikubabale, ndikwazile ngegama.
18 Wathi yena, Khawundibonise ubuqaqawuli bakho.
19 Wathi, Ndiya kukudlulisa konke ukulunga kwam ebusweni bakho, ndivakalise igama likaYehova phambi kwakho, ndibabale endimbabalayo, ndisikwe yimfesane kondosikwa yimfesane ngaye.
20 Wathi, Akunakububona ubuso bam; kuba akukho mntu undibona aphile.
21 Wathi uYehova, Nantsi ke indawo ngakum; uze ume phezu kweliwa;
22 kuthi, ekudluleni kobuqaqawuli bam, ndikubeke emqhokrweni weliwa, ndikugubungele ngesandla sam, ndide ndidlule;

8 Wakhawuleza uMoses, wathoba emhlabeni, waqubuda kuye.
9 Wathi, Ukuba undibabale, Nkosi yam, mayihambe phakathi kwethu iNkosi yam; kuba bengabantu abantamo ilukhuni. Xolela ubugwenxa bethu nesono sethu, usenze ilifa lakho.
10 Wathi, Yabona, ndenza umnqophiso; ndiya kwenza imisebenzi ebalulekileyo, engazanga idalwe ehlabathini lonke nasezintlangeni zonke, phambi kwabantu bonke bakowenu; bonke abantu ophakathi kwabo wena bowubona umsebenzi kaYehova; ngokuba yinto eyoyikekayo eniya kuyenza kuwe.

13 Nozidiliza izibingelelo zabo, niziqhekeze izimiso zabo zamatye, nibagawule ooAshera babo.
14 Kuba akusayi kungqula thixo wumbi; kuba uYehova nguKhwele, igama lakhe, nguThixo onekhwele;
15 hleze wenze umnqophiso nabemi belo zwe, baze bahenyuze ngokulandela oothixo babo, babingelele koothixo babo, bakubize udle umbingelelo wabo;
16 uzekele oonyana bakho ezintombini zabo, zize iintombi zabo zihenyuze ngokulandela oothixo babo, zibenyuzise noonyana bakho, ngokubalandelisa oothixo babo.
17 Uze ungazenzeli oothixo abatyhidiweyo.

22 Uze uwenze umthendeleko weeveki, wentlahlela yokuvunwa kwengqolowa; nomthendeleko wokuhlanganisela ukutya emakhaya ekupheleni komnyaka.
23 Izihlandlo ezithathu ngomnyaka, yonke into engamadoda yakowenu yobonakala ebusweni beNkosi uYehova, uThixo kaSirayeli.
24 Kuba ndiya kuzigqogqa iintlanga phambi kwakho, ndiwenze banzi umda wakho, linganqwenelwa nangubani ilizwe lakho, ekunyukeni kwakho usiya kubonakala ebusweni bukaYehova uThixo wakho, izihlandlo ezithathu ngomnyaka.

28 Waye ekhona ke enoYehova iimini ezimashumi mane nobusuku obumashumi mane; akadla sonka, akasela manzi. Wawabhala emacwecweni amazwi omnqophiso, la mazwi alishumi.

30 UAron noonyana bonke bakaSirayeli bambona uMoses. Yini? Ulusu lobuso bakhe luyakhazimla; boyika ukusondela kuye.
31 Wababiza uMoses, babuyela kuye uAron nezikhulu zonke zebandla, wathetha nazo uMoses.
32 Emveni koko basondela bonke oonyana bakaSirayeli, wabawisela umthetho wako konke abekuthethile uYehova kuye entabeni yaseSinayi.
33 Wagqiba uMoses ukuthetha nabo, wabeka isigqubuthelo ebusweni bakhe.
34 Ekungeneni kukaMoses phambi koYehova, esiya kuthetha naye, wasisusa isigqubuthelo, wada waphuma. Waphuma, wathetha koonyana bakaSirayeli oko abemwisele umthetho ngako.
35 Babubona oonyana bakaSirayeli ubuso bukaMoses, ukuba ulusu lobuso bukaMoses luyakhazimla. Wabuya wasibeka uMoses isigqubuthelo ebusweni bakhe, wada wangena, waya kuthetha naye.
