6 Bobeka phezu kwawo isigubungelo sezikhumba zamahlengezi batwabulule ngaphezulu ingubo ebala limsi liphela, bazifake izibonda zawo.
7 Ize batwabulule ingubo ebala limsi phezu kwetafile yezonka zokubonisa, babeke phezu kwayo izitya, neenkamba, namathunga, neendebe zokuthululwa, nezonka zamaxhesha onke, zibe phezu kwayo.

20 bangangeni bakhangele ingcwele, nangephanyazo eli, hleze bafe.
21 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi,

20 Ke wena, xa uthe wanxaxha, unendoda yakho, xa uthe wazenza inqambi, walalwa yenye indoda engeyiyo indoda yakho:
21 umbingeli womfungisa umfazi lowo isifungo— sokuzishwabulela, athi umbingeleli kumfazi, UYehova makakwenze isishwabulo, nesithuko phakathi kwabantu bakowenu, ngokuthi uYehova alintshwenyise ithanga lakho, asidumbise isisu sakho;
22 angene la manzi esiqalekiso embilinini wakho, akudumbise isisu, akuntshwenyise ithanga. Wothi loo mfazi, Amen, amen.

21 Bazihlambulula isono abaLevi, bahlamba iingubo zabo; uAron wabatshangatshangisa, baba ngumtshangatshangiso phambi koYehova; uAron wabacamagushela ukuba bahlambuluke.
22 Emveni koko bangena abaLevi, ukuba basebenze umsebenzi wabo ententeni yokuhlangana, phambi koAron naphambi koonyana bakhe. Njengoko uYehova wamwisela umthetho uMoses ngabaLevi, benjenjalo kubo.

3 Noyenza ngomhla weshumi elinesine kuloo nyanga, lakutshona ilanga, ngexesha layo elimisiweyo. Noyenza ngokwemimiselo yayo yonke, nangokwamasiko ayo onke.
4 Wathetha ke uMoses koonyana bakaSirayeli, ukuba bayenze ipasika.

6 Ke kwakukho amadoda awayethe azenza iinqambi ngomntu ofileyo, akaba nako ukuyenza ipasika ngaloo mhla. Asondela phambi koMoses naphambi koAron ngaloo mhla;
7 athi loo madoda kuye, Siziinqambi ngomntu ofileyo; sivalelwa ngani na, ukuba singasondezi umsondezo kaYehova ngexesha lawo elimisiweyo phakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli?
8 Wathi uMoses kuwo, Yimani, khe ndive ukuba uYehova wowisa mtetho mni nangani.
9 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi,
10 Thetha koonyana bakaSirayeli, uthi, Umntu ngomntu, xa athe wayinqambi ngofileyo, mhlawumbi waseluhambeni ehambele kude, engowakuni, nokuba ngowezizukulwana zenu, woyenza ipasika kuYehova.
11 Boyenza ngenyanga yesibini, ngomhla weshumi elinesine, lakutshona ilanga, kunye nezonka ezingenagwele bayidle inemithana ekrakra;
12 bangasalisi nto kuyo kude kuse, bangaphuli thambo layo. Boyenza ngokommiselo wonke wepasika.
13 Ke umntu lowo uhlambulukileyo yena, ungekhona eluhambeni, ethe wayeka ukuyenza ipasika, loo mphefumlo wonqanyulwa, ungabikho ebantwini bakowawo; ngokuba akawusondezanga umsondezo kaYehova ngexesha lawo elimisiweyo. Loo mntu wosithwala isono sakhe.
14 Umphambukeli, xa athe waphambukela kuni, woyenza ipasika kuYehova; ngokommiselo wepasika nangokwesiko layo woyenjenjalo; ummiselo woba mnye kuni, nakumphambukeli, nakozalelwe kulo ilizwe.
15 Ngomhla wokumiswa komnquba, ilifu lawusibekela umnquba wentente yesingqino; ngokuhlwa lanjengembonakalo yomlilo phezu komnquba, kwada kwasa.
16 Kwahlala kunjalo; ilifu lawusibekela emini, laba yimbonakalo yomlilo ebusuku.
17 Kube kusithi, linganyuka ilifu lisuke phezu kwentente, emveni koko banduluke oonyana bakaSirayeli; kuthi endaweni elithe zinzi kuyo ilifu, bamise iintente khona oonyana bakaSirayeli.

19 Lakolula ilifu imihla emininzi lihleli phezu komnquba, basigcina isigxina sikaYehova oonyana bakaSirayeli, abanduluka.
20 Kwathi, lakubakho ilifu phezu komnquba nokuba yimihla embalwa, basigcina isigxina sikaYehova, abanduluka. Ngokomlomo kaYehova bamisa, ngokomlomo kaYehova banduluka.

22 Nokuba yimihla emibini, nokuba yinyanga, nokuba yimihla ethile ukolula kwelifu phezu komnquba, ukuthi zinzi kwalo phezu kwawo, bamisa oonyana bakaSirayeli, abanduluka; ekunyukeni kwalo ke banduluka.

12 Ndim na obakhawuleyo aba bantu bonke? Ndim na obazeleyo, ukuba uthi kum, Bathwale ngesifuba sakho, njengomondli ethwele umntwana owanyayo, ndibase emhlabeni owawufungela ooyise?

17 Ndiya kuhla, ndithethe nawe khona, ndicaphule kumoya okuwe, ndibeke kuwo, awuthwale nawe umthwalo wabantu aba, ungawuthwali wedwa wena.
18 Yithi ebantwini, Zingcwaliseleni ingomso, nodla inyama; kuba nililile ezindlebeni zikaYehova, nisithi, Ngubani na oya kusinika inyama sidle; ngokuba kwakumnandi kuthi eYiputa. UYehova uya kuninika ke inyama nidle.
19 Aniyi kuyidla mhla mnye, namihla mibini, namihla mihlanu, namihla ilishumi, namihla imashumi mabini;

21 Wathi uMoses, Ngumqikela ongamakhulu omathandathu amawaka abantu endiphakathi kwabo; ke uthi wena. Ndiya kubanika inyama, badle inyanga iphela.
22 Impahla emfutshane neenkomo ziya kuxhelelwa bona na, zibalingane? Ziya kuhlanganiselwa bona nazonke iintlanzi zolwandle, zibalingane?
23 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Isandla sikaYehova sifutshane na? Ngoku uya kubona ukuba ilizwi lam liya kwenzeka, aliyi kwenzeka, kusini na.
24 Waphuma uMoses, wawathetha ebantwini amazwi kaYehova, wawahlanganisa amadoda amashumi osixhenxe kumadoda amakhulu abantu, wawamisa aba sisangqa ententeni.
25 Wehla uYehova ngelifu, wathetha kuye, wacaphula kumoya okuye, wawubeka kumadoda amakhulu angamashumi osixhenxe; kwathi, xa wahlalayo umoya phezu kwawo, aprofeta, akaphinda kodwa.
26 Ke kaloku kwasala amadoda amabini eminqubeni, igama lenye linguElidade, igama leyesibini linguMedade; wahlala umoya phezu kwawo; aba kwababhalwayo wona, kodwa akaphumanga aye ententeni; aprofeta eminqubeni.
27 Kwagidima umfana, waxelela uMoses, wathi, OoElidade noMedade bayaprofeta eminqubeni phaya.
28 Waphendula uYoshuwa unyana kaNun, umlungiseleli kaMoses, wakwabanyuliweyo bakhe, wathi, Nkosi yam, Moses, bathintele.
29 Wathi uMoses kuye, Unekhwele ngenxa yam na? Akwaba bonke abantu bakaYehova babengabaprofeti, waba uYehova ubeke uMoya wakhe kubo!
30 Wabuya uMoses, waya eminqubeni, yena namadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli.
31 Kwesuka umoya kuYehova, waguqula izagwityi elwandle, wazithi saa eminqubeni, zaba ngangohambo lwemini ngapha, zaba ngangohambo lwemini ngapha, zajikeleza iminquba; zangangeekubhite zombini, ukuphakama phezu komhlaba.
32 Besuka ke abantu yonke loo mini, bonke ubusuku, yonke imini yengomso, bazibutha izagwityi. Owabutha kancinane wabutha iihomere ezilishumi; bamana ukuzaneka, bajikelezisa eminqubeni.
33 Yathi inyama leyo isesemazinyweni abo, ingekahlafunwa, wavutha umsindo kaYehova kubo abantu, wababetha uYehova abantu ngesibetho esikhulu kunene.
34 Kwathiwa igama laloo ndawo yiKibroti-hatahava; ngokuba bangcwatyelwa khona abantu abakhanukayo.

2 Wothumela indoda ibe nye kwisizwe sooyise, iyileyo ibe yeyinkulu kuso.
3 Wawathuma ke uMoses, esentlango yaseParan, ngokomlomo kaYehova, onke loo madoda, eziintloko zoonyana bakaSirayeli.
4 Ngawo la amagama awo: kwisizwe sakwaRubhen, ibinguShamuwa, unyana kaZakure;
5 kwisizwe sakwaSimon, ibinguShafati, unyana kaHori;
6 kwisizwe sakwaYuda, ibinguKalebhi, unyana kaYefune;
7 kwisizwe sakwaIsakare, ibinguIgali, unyana kaYosefu;
8 kwisizwe sakwaEfrayim, ibinguHosheya, unyana kaNun;
9 kwisizwe sakwaBhenjamin, ibinguPalti, unyana kaRafu;
10 kwisizwe sakwaZebhulon, ibinguGadiyeli, unyana kaSodi;
11 kwisizwe sakwaYosefu, esisisizwe sakwaManase, ibinguGadi, unyana kaSusi;
12 kwisizwe sakwaDan, ibinguAmiyeli, unyana kaGemali;
13 kwisizwe sakwa-Ashere, ibinguSeture, unyana kaMikayeli;
14 kwisizwe sakwaNafetali, ibinguNabhi, unyana kaVofesi;
15 kwisizwe sakwaGadi, ibinguGehuweli, unyana kaMaki.
16 Ngawo lawo amagama amadoda awawathumayo uMoses, ukuba aye kuhlola ilizwe. UMoses wathi uHosheya, unyana kaNun, nguYoshuwa.
17 Wawathuma ke uMoses, ukuba aye kuhlola ilizwe lakwaKanan, wathi kuwo, Nyukani nina ngasezantsi, ngale ndlela;
18 nyukani niye entabeni, nilikhangele ilizwe ukuba linjani na, nabantu abemi kulo, ukubabomelele, bangamaphakuphaku, kusini na; bambalwa, baninzi, kusini na;
19 ukuba linjani na ilizwe abemi kulo, lihle, libi, kusini na; ukuba injani na imizi abemi kuyo, baseminqubeni, basezinqabeni, kusini na;
20 ukuba linjani na ilizwe elo, liyachuma, alichumi, kusini na; linemithi, alinayo, kusini na. Yomelelani, nize neziqhamo zelo zwe. Loo mihla yabe iyimihla yentlahlela yeediliya.
21 Enyuka ke, alihlola ilizwe, ethabathela entlango yaseTsin, esa eRehobhi, ekuyeni eHamati.
22 Enyuka ngezantsi, afike eHebron; babekhona ooAhiman, noSheshayi, noTalemayi, abenzalo ka-Anaki. Ke owaseHebron wawusewakhiwe iminyaka esixhenxe, ingekakhiwa iTsohan eYiputa.
23 Afika esihlanjeni sakwaEshekoli, anqumla khona isebe linesihloko seediliya sisinye, asithwala ngesibonda emabini; nakwiirharnate, nakumakhiwane enjenjalo.
24 Loo ndawo kwathiwa sisihlambo sakwaEshekoli, ngenxa yesihloko eso basinqumla khona oonyana bakaSirayeli.
25 Abuya ekulihloleni ilizwe ekupheleni kweentsuku ezimashumi mane.
26 Eza afika kuMoses, nakuAron, nakwibandla lonke loonyana bakaSirayeli, entlango yaseParan eKadeshe; azisa ilizwi kubo, nakwibandla lonke, ababonisa neziqhamo zelizwe elo.
27 Abaxelela athi, Safika kwelo zwe wasithuma kulo; inene, libaleka amasi nobusi; nazi neziqhamo zalo.
28 Kodwa banamandla abantu, abemi kwelo zwe; imizi inqatyisiwe, imikhulu kunene; kananjalo sibone abenzalo ka-Anaki khona.
29 Kumi ama-Amaleki ezweni lasezantsi; amaHeti namaYebhusi nama-Amori emi ezintabeni; amaKanan emingaselwandle nangecala laseYordan.
30 Wabazolisa uKalebhi abantu phambi koMoses, wathi, Masinyuke kwangoku, silihluthe; ngokuba siyakuleyisa kakade.
31 Ke amadoda abenyuke naye athi, Asinako ukunyuka siye kwabo bantu; ngokuba bomelele kunathi.
32 Ahambisa udaba olubi ngelo zwe abelihlolile koonyana bakaSirayeli, esithi, Ilizwe esacanda kulo silihlola, lilizwe elibadlayo abemi balo; abantu bonke esababonayo kulo babengabafo abade.
33 Sazibona khona iingxilimbela, oonyana baka-Anaki basezingxilimbeleni; sesuka emehlweni ethu saba njengemicikwane, sanjalo nasemehlweni abo.




Isahluko 14

1 Lonke ibandla laliphakamisa lalikhupha ilizwi lalo, balila abantu ungobo busuku.
2 Bonke oonyana bakaSirayeli babakrokrela ooMoses noAron; lathi kubo lonke ibandla, Akwaba besifele ezweni laseYiputa! Akwaba besifele nakule ntlango!
3 Yini na ukuba uYehova asizise kweli lizwe ukuze siwelikrele, abafazi nabantwana bethu babe lixhoba? Akusilungele na kanye ukuba sibuyele eYiputa?
4 Batshono ukuthi, Masizimisele umphathi, sibuyele eYiputa.
5 Bawa ooMoses noAron ngobuso babo phambi kwesikhungu sonke sebandla loonyana bakaSirayeli.
6 UYoshuwa unyana kaNun, noKalebhi unyana kaYefune, ababekwababelihlolile ilizwe, bazikrazula iingubo zabo.
7 Bathi kwibandla lonke loonyana bakaSirayeli, Ilizwe esacanda kulo silihlola, lilizwe elihle kakhulu kunene.
8 Ukuba uYehova usinonelele, wosisa kwelo zwe, asinike; lilizwe elibaleka amasi nobusi.
9 Kodwa musani ukugwilika kuYehova, musani ukuboyika abantu belo zwe nina; kuba bakukudla kwethu. Umkile umthunzi wabo kubo, uYehova unathi; musani ukoyika.
10 Ke lathi lonke ibandla mabaxulutywe ngamatye. Babonakala ubuqaqawuli bukaYehova ententeni yokuhlangana kubo bonke oonyana bakaSirayeli.
11 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Kuya kuda kube nini na bendigiba aba bantu? Kuya kuda kube nini nabengakholwa kum, kwimiqondiso yonke endiyenzileyo phakathi kwabo?
12 Ndiya kubabetha ngendyikitya yokufa, ndibagqogqe; wena ndikwenze uhlanga olukhulu olunamandla kunabo.
13 Wathi uMoses kuYehova, AmaYiputa avile ukuba ubanyusile ngamandla akho aba bantu phakathi kwawo;
14 abaxelele nokubaxelela abemi beli lizwe. Bavile nabo ukuba wena, Yehova, uphakathi kwaba bantu. Ubonakala iliso kwiliso, wena Yehova, nelifu lakho limi phezu kwabo; uhamba phambi kwabo emqulwini welifu emini, emqulwini womlilo ebusuku.
15 Ukuba uthe wababulala aba bantu njengandoda-nye, zotsho iintlanga eziluvileyo udaba lwakho, ukuthi,
16 Kungenxa enokuba uYehova ebengenako ukubasa abobantu ezweni abebafungele lona, le nto abasikileyo entlango.
17 Kaloku amandla eNkosi makabe makhulu, njengoko wathethayo wena, wathi,
18 UYehova uzeka kade umsindo, mkhulu ngenceba, uxolela ubugwenxa nesikreqo, engeze amenze msulwa onetyala; uvelela ubugwenxa booyise koonyana kwesesithathu nakwesesine isizukulwana.
19 Buxolele, ndiyakukhunga, ubugwenxa baba bantu ngokobukhulu benceba yakho, njengoko ubuxoleleyo ubugwenxa baba bantu, uthabathele eYiputa wezisa apha.
20 Wathi uYehova, Ndibaxolele ngokwelizwi lakho.
21 Noko, ndihleli nje, buya kulizalisa ihlabathi lonke ubuqaqawuli bukaYehova.
22 Amadoda onke abubonileyo ubuqaqawuli bam, nemiqondiso yam endayenzayo eYiputa nasentlango, andilingileyo ezi zihlandlo zilishumi, akaliphulaphula izwi lam,
23 wona akasayi kulibona ilizwe endalifungela ooyise; bonke abandigibileyo abasayi kulibona.
24 Ke yena umkhonzi wam uKalebhi, ngenxa enokuba ebenamoya wumbi, wakholisa ukundilandela, ndiyakumfikisa ezweni ebeye kulo, lihluthwe yimbewu yakhe.
25 Ke ama-Amaleki namaKanan emi entilini. Jikani ngomso, ninduluke, nisinge entlango ngendlela eya eLwandle oluBomvu.
26 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses nakuAron, esithi,
27 Kuya kuda kube nini na ndilithwele eli bandla lingendawo, lona elilindikrokrelayo? Izikrokro zoonyana bakaSirayeli abandikrokrela ngazo ndizivile.
28 Yithi kubo, Ndihleli nje, utsho uYehova, inene, njengoko nithethileyo ezindlebeni zam, ndiya kwenjenjalo kuni.
29 Izidumbu zenu ziya kuwa kule ntlango; nabo bonke ababalwayo kuni ngokwenani lenu lonke, bethabathela kominyaka imashumi mabini ezelwe, banyuse, nina nindikrokreleyo,
30 aniyi kungena ezweni endaliphakamisela isandla sam ukuba ndinihlalise kulo, ingenguKalebhi unyana kaYefune, noYoshuwa unyana kaNun.
31 Ke usapho lwenu, ebe nisithi luya kuba lixhoba, ndiya kulungenisa lona, lulazi ilizwe enilicekisileyo.
32 Nina, izidumbu zenu ziya kuwa kule ntlango;
33 oonyana benu babe ngabalusi entlango iminyaka emashumi mane, bathwale ukuhenyuza kwenu, zide ziphele izidumbu zenu entlango.
34 Ngokwenani lemihla enalihlola ngayo ilizwe, imihla emashumi mane, umhla ube ngumnyaka, niyakubuthwala ubugwenxa benu iminyaka emashumi mane, nikwazi ukunishiya kwam.
35 Mna Yehova ndithethile; inene, le nto ndiya kuyenza kweli bandla lonke lingendawo, kwaba bahlangene ngam; baya kuphela kule ntlango, bafele kuyo.
36 Ke amadoda la abewathumile uMoses, ukuba alihlole ilizwe, aza abuya akrokrisa lonke ibandla ngaye, ngokuhambisa udaba olubi ngalo ilizwe,
37 wona loo madoda abehambise udaba olubi ngelizwe elo, afa sisibetho eso phambi koYehova.
38 Kwasala uYoshuwa unyana kaNun, noKalebhi unyana kaYefune, kuloo madoda abeye kulihlola ilizwe.
39 Wawathetha uMoses la mazwi kubo bonke oonyana bakaSirayeli; benza isijwili esikhulu abantu.
40 Bavuka kusasa, baya encotsheni yentaba, besithi, Sikho, siyakunyuka siyekuloo ndawo ayithethileyo uYehova; ngokuba sonile.
41 Wathi uMoses, Yini na, le nto niwugqithayo umlomo kaYehova? Le nto ayiyi kuphumelela.
42 Musani ukunyuka, kuba uYehova akakho phakathi kwenu; ningagxothwa ziintshaba zenu.
43 Ngokuba ama-Amaleki namaKanan akhona phambi kwenu, niya kuwa likrele; ngenxa yokuba nibuyile ekumlandeleni uYehova, akayi kuba nani uYehova.
44 Bagxalathelana, benyuka baya encotsheni yentaba; ke yona ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova noMoses ayiphumanga phakathi kweminquba.
45 Ehla ama-Amaleki namaKanan abehleli kuloo ntaba, abaxabela, abaqoba kwasa eHorma.




Isahluko 15

1 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi,
2 Thetha koonyana bakaSirayeli, uthi kubo, Xa nithe nafika ezweni lokuhlala kwenu endininika lona,
3 nenza ukudla kwasemlilweni kuYehova, idini elinyukayo, nokuba ngumbingelelo wesibhambathiso esibalulekileyo, nokuba ngowokuqhutywa yintliziyo, nokuba ngowamaxesha enu amisiweyo, nisenza ivumba elithozamisayo kuYehova, nithabatha kwiinkomo, nokuba nithabatha kwimpahla emfutshane:
4 lowo uwusondezayo umsondezo wakhe kuYehova, wosondeza umnikelo wokudla osisahlulo seshumi se-efa yomgubo ocoliweyo, ugalelwe isahlulo sesine sehin yeoli;
5 nesahlulo sesine sehin yewayini yomnikelo othululwayo, usenze ndawonye nedini elinyukayo; nokuba ngumbingelelo, ube ngowamvana-nye.
6 Nokuba ngowenkunzi yegusha, wowenza umnikelo wokudla ube zizahlulo ezibini zesishumi se-efa yomgubo ocoliweyo, ugalelwe ioli esisahlulo sesithathu sehin;
7 newayini yomnikelo othululwayo, isahlulo sesithathu sehin, uyisondeze ibe livumba elithozamisayo kuYehova.
8 Xa uthe wenza ithole lenkomo idini elinyukayo, nokuba ngumbingelelo wesibhambathiso esibalulekileyo, nokuba ngowoxolo kuYehova:
9 wosondeza ndawonye nethole lenkomo umnikelo wokudla, ube zizahlulo ezithathu zesishumi se-efa yomgubo ocoliweyo, ugalelwe ioli esisiqinqatha sehin.
10 Woyisondeza newayini ibe yeyomnikelo othululwayo, esisiqingatha sehin: ukudla kwasemlilweni, ivumba elithozamisayo kuYehova;
11 kwenjiwe njalo kwinkomo enye, nokuba kukwinkunzi yemvu enye, nokuba kukwitakane legusha elinye, nelebhokhwe elinye.
12 Ngangenani enithe nalenza, niya kwenjenjalo kuyo inye, kube ngangenani lazo.
13 Bonke abo bazalelwe kuloo ndawo baya kwenjenjalo kwezo zinto ekusondezeni kwabo ukudla kwasemlilweni, ivumba elithozamisayo kuYehova.
14 Xa athe waphambukela kuni umphambukeli, nokuba ngophakathi kwenu ezizukulwaneni zenu, wenza ukudla kwasemlilweni, ivumba elithozamisayo kuYehova: njengoko nenza ngako nina, uya kwenza ngakonaye.
15 Ngokubhekisele kuso isikhungu, woba mnye ummiselo kuni, nakumphambukeli ophambukele kuni, ummiselo ongunaphakade kwizizukulwana zenu. Njengoko ninjalo nina, woba njalo umphambukeli phambi koYehova.
16 Umyalelo woba mnye, nesiko loba linye kuni, nakumphambukeli ophambukele kuni.
17 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi,
18 Thetha koonyana bakaSirayeli, uthi kubo, Ekufikeni kwenu ezweni elondinisa kulo,
19 kothi ekudleni kwenu isonka selizwe, nirhumele uYehova umrhumo.
20 Norhuma umrhumo womgrayo wenu wokuqala, wenziwe umqhathane; njengomrhumo wesanda, nowenjenjalo ukuwurhuma.
21 Kuwo umgrayo wenu wokuqala, nomnika uYehova umrhumo ezizukulwaneni zenu.
22 Xa nithe nalahleka, anayenza le mithetho yonke ayithethileyo uYehova kuMoses,
23 zonke izinto uYehova aniwisele umthetho ngazo ngesandla sikaMoses, kususela kumhla uYehova awawisa umthetho, nasemva koko ezizukulwaneni zenu:
24 kothi, ukuba kuthe kwenzeka into ngokulahleka, ingabonwa libandla, ibandla lonke lenze inkunzi entsha, ithole lenkomo, libe linye, ibe lidini elinyukayo, ibe livumba elithozamisayo kuYehova, ndawonye nomnikelo walo wokudla, nomnikelo walo othululwayo, ngokwesiko; nenkunzi yebhokhwe exhonti ibe nye, ibe lidini lesono;
25 alicamagushele umbingeleli lonke ibandla loonyana bakaSirayeli. Boxolelwa ke, ngokuba ibikukulahleka oku; bawuzisile bona umsondezo wabo, ukudla kwasemlilweni kuYehova, nedini labo lesono phambi koYehova ngenxa yokulahleka kwabo.
26 Loxolelwa ke lonke ibandla loonyana bakaSirayeli, nomphambukeli ophambukele phakathi kwenu, ngokuba kubahlele oku abantu bonke ngokulahleka.
27 Ukuba ubani uthe wona ngokulahleka, wosondeza ibhokhwe elithokazi elimnyaka mnye, ibe lidini lesono;
28 umbingeleli acamagushele umphefumlo olahlekayo ngokona kwawo, ngokulahleka kwawo phambi koYehova. Akuwucamagushela, woxolelwa ke.
29 Kozalwayo phakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli, nakumphambukeli ophambukele phakathi kwenu, woba mnye umyalelo kuni, ngokusingisele kowenza ngokulahleka.
30 Ke yena owenza ngesandla esiphakamileyo kwabazalelwe kuloo ndawo nakubaphambukeli, yena uyamnyelisa uYehova; loo mphefumlo ke wonqanyulwa, ungabikho phakathi kwabantu bakowawo.
31 Ngokuba ulidelile ilizwi likaYehova, uwaphule nomyalelo wakhe; loo mphefumlo wonqanyulwa kanye, ubugwenxa buphezu kwawo.
32 Kwathi, oonyana bakaSirayeli besentlango, bafumana umntu etheza iinkuni ngomhla wesabatha.
33 Abo bamfumanayo etheza iinkuni, bamsondeza kuMoses nakuAron nakwibandla lonke;
34 bamfaka elugcinweni, kuba bekungekamiswa okuya kwenziwa kuye.
35 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Makabulawe afe loo mntu, limxulube ibandla lonke ngamatye, ngaphandle kweminquba.
36 Lonke ibandla lamkhuphela ngaphandle kweminquba, lamxuluba ke ngamatye. Wafa, njengoko uYehova wamwiselayo umthetho uMoses.
37 Wathi uYehova kuMoses,
38 Thetha koonyana bakaSirayeli, uthi kubo, mabenze iintshinga emasondweni eengubo zabo, kwizizukulwana zabo, bafake entshingeni yesondo intsontelo ebala limsi.
39 Mayibe yintshinga kuni; nithi, nakuyibona, niyikhumbule yonke imithetho kaYehova, niyenze, ningabhaduli nilandele intliziyo yenu, namehlo enu, enibe nihenyuza ngokulandela wona;
40 ukuze niyikhumbule niyenze yonke imithetho yam, nibe ngcwele kuThixo wenu.
41 NdinguYehova uThixo wenu, onikhuphileyo ezweni laseYiputa, ukuba ndibe nguThixo kuni: ndinguYehova, uThixo wenu.

1 Ke kaloku uKora, unyana kaItsare, unyana kaKehati, unyana kaLevi, noDatan noAbhiram oonyana bakaEliyabhi, no-On unyana kaPelete, oonyana bakaRubhen,
2 bathabatha amadoda angamakhulu amabini, anamanci mahlanu, akoonyana bakaSirayeli, izikhulu zebandla ezanyulwa yintlanganiso, amadoda anodumo; bavukelana noMoses.
3 Babizelana ndawonye ngoMoses nangoAron, bathi kubo, Nisenanele nina, ngokuba lingcwele lonke ibandla, bonke bephela; uYehova uphakathi kwabo. Yini na ukuba niziphakamise phezu kwesikhungu sikaYehova?
4 Weva uMoses, wawa ngobuso.
5 Wathetha kuKora nakwibandla lakhe lonke, esithi, Ngomso uYehova uya kwazisa ongowakhe, ongcwele, amsondeze kuye, lowo amnyulileyo womsondeza kuye.
6 Yenzani oku: zithabatheleni iingcedevu, wena Kora nebandla lakho lonke,
7 nibeke umlilo kuzo, nibeke isiqhumiso phezu kwazo phambi koYehova ngomso. Kothi, umntu athe uYehova wamnyula abe ngcwele yena; senanele nina, nyana bakaLevi.
8 Wathi uMoses kuKora, Khanive, nina nyana bakaLevi.
9 Yinto encinane na kuni, ukuba uThixo kaSirayeli anahlule kwibandla lakwaSirayeli, anisondeze kuye, ukubanisebenze umsebenzi womnquba kaYehova, nime phambi kwebandla, nilungiselele kubo,
10 ekusondezile nje wena nabazalwana bakho bonke, oonyana bakaLevi ndawonye nawe? Nifuna kwanobubingeleli na?
11 Ninani na, wena nebandla lakho lonke, le nto nihlangana ngoYehova? Ke uAron uyintoni na yena, ukuba nimkrokrele?
12 Wathuma uMoses, wabiza uDatan noAbhiram oonyana bakaEliyabhi. Bathi, Asiyi kunyuka size.
13 Yinto encinane na le yokuba usinyuse ezweni elibaleka amasi nobusi, uze kusibulala apha entlango, le nto uhlala uzenze umphathi phezu kwethu?
14 Kananjalo akusingenisanga ezweni elibaleka amasi nobusi, akusinikanga lifa lamasimi nazidiliya; uya kuwakrukra na amehlo ala madoda? Asiyi kunyuka size.
15 Wavutha kunene umsindo kaMoses, wathi kuYehova, Musa ukuwubheka umnikelo wabo wokudla. Andithabathanga ne-esile elinye kubo, andiphathanga kakubi namnye wabo.
16 Wathi uMoses kuKora, Wena nebandla lakho lonke, ze nibe phambi koYehova, wena nabo noAron, ngomso;
17 nithabathe elowo ugcedevu lwakhe, nibeke isiqhumiso phezu kwazo, nisondeze phambi koYehova, elowo abe nogcedevu lwakhe, iingcedevu ezimakhulu mabini anamanci mahlanu; nawe noAron elowo abenogcedevu lwakhe.
18 Bathabatha ke elowo ugcedevu lwakhe, babeka umlilo kuzo, babeka isiqhumiso phezu kwazo, bema emnyango wentente yokuhlangana noMoses noAron.
19 UKora walibizela ndawonye ngabo ibandla lonke emnyango wentente yokuhlangana. Babonakala ubuqaqawuli bukaYehova kwibandla lonke.
20 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses nakuAron, esithi,
21 Zahluleni kweli bandla; ndiya kubagqibela ngephanyazo.
22 Bawa ngobuso, bathi, Thixo, Thixo woomoya benyama yonke, kone umntu wamnye nje, unoburhalarhume kwibandla lonke na?
23 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi,
24 Thetha kwibandla, uthi, Sukani nimke ngeenxa zonke emzini kaKora noDatan noAbhiram.
25 Wesuka uMoses, waya kuDatan noAbhiram; amlandela amadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli.
26 Wathetha kwibandla esithi, Mkani ezintenteni zala madoda angendawo, ningachukumisi nto iyeyawo, hleze niphetshethwe ngezono zawo zonke.
27 Benyuka ke, bemka emzini kaKora noDatan noAbhiram ngeenxa zonke. OoDatan noAbhiram bema emnyango weentente zabo, nabafazi babo, noonyana babo, neentsatshana zabo.
28 Wathi uMoses, Niya kwazi ngale nto, ukuba uYehova undithumele ukwenza yonke le misebenzi; ngokuba asiyantliziyo yam.
29 Ukuba aba bathe bafa ngokufa kwabantu bonke, nokuba bathe bavelelwa ngokuvelelwa kwabantu bonke, woba uYehova akandithumanga.
30 Ke ukuba uYehova uthe wenza isimanga, umhlaba wakhamisa umlomo wawo, wabaginya, nento yonke abanayo, behla besaphilile baya kwelabafileyo, noqonda ngoko ukuba la madoda amgibile uYehova.
31 Kwathi, ukugqiba kwakhe ukuwathetha onke la mazwi, wacandeka umhlaba obuphantsi kwabo;
32 umhlaba wawuvula umlomo wawo, wabaginya, nezindlu zabo, nabantu bonke bakaKora, nempahla yabo yonke.
33 Behla bona besaphilile, nento yonke abanayo, baya kwelabafileyo, umhlaba wabaselela, batshabalala, ababakho phakathi kwesikhungu.
34 Onke amaSirayeli abebangqongile abalekiswa sisithonga sesikhalo sabo; ngokuba abesithi, Hleze umhlaba usiginye nathi.
35 Kwaphuma umlilo kuYehova, wawadla amadoda angamakhulu amabini anamanci mahlanu, asondeza isiqhumiso.
36 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi,
37 Yitsho kuElazare, unyana ka-Aron umbingeleli, azichole iingcedevu eluvundwini, wena uwuchithachithele kude umlilo, ngokuba zingcwele.
38 Iingcedevu zabo bonayo ngakwimiphefumlo yabo, ize nizenze izixwexwe ezicekethekileyo zokwaleka isibingelelo; ngokuba bazisondeza phambi koYehova zangcwaliswa. Zoba ngumqondiso koonyana bakaSirayeli.
39 Wazithabatha ke uElazare umbingeleli iingcedevu zobhedu, ababezisondezile abo batshiswayo, zakhandwa, zaba zezokwaleka isibingelelo.
40 Yaba sisikhumbuzo eso koonyana bakaSirayeli, ukuze kungasondeli ndoda yasemzini, ingengowembewu ka-Aron, iqhumisele ngesiqhumiso phambi koYehova, ukuze ingabi njengoKora nanjengebandla lakhe, njengoko uYehova wathethayo kuye ngoMoses.
41 Lamkrokrela uMoses noAron ngengomso lonke ibandla loonyana bakaSirayeli, lisithi, Nina nibabulele abantu bakaYehova.
42 Kwathi ekubizelweni ndawonye kwebandla ngoMoses nangoAron, babheka ententeni yokuhlangana. Nalo ilifu liyisibekele babonakala ubuqaqawuli bukaYehova.
43 Beza ooMoses noAron phambi kwentente yokuhlangana.
44 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi,
45 Sukani phakathi kweli bandla, ndiligqibele ngephanyazo. Bawa ngobuso.
46 Wathi uMoses kuAron, Luthabathe ugcedevu, ubeke umlilo phezu kwalo ovela esibingelelweni, ubeke isiqhumiso, ukhawuleze uye ebandleni, ubacamagushele; kuba kuphume uburhalarhume ebusweni bukaYehova, siqalile isibetho.
47 Wathabatha ke uAron njengoko uMoses wathethayo, wabalekela phakathi kwesikhungu; naso isibetho siqalile ebantwini. Wabeka isiqhumiso, wabacamagushela abantu.
48 Wema phakathi kwabafileyo nabahleliyo; sathintelwa ke isibetho.
49 Abo bafayo sisibetho baba lishumi elinesine lamawaka anamakhulu asixhenxe, ngaphandle kwabafayo ngendawo yakwaKora.
50 Wabuyela uAron kuMoses emnyango wentente yokuhlangana; isibetho sathintelwa ke.

2 Thetha koonyana bakaSirayeli, uthabathe kubo iintonga: intonga ngokwendlu yooyise, kwiinkulu zabo zonke ngokwezindlu zooyise, iintonga ezilishumi elinambini, ubhale igama lalowo nalowo entongeni yakhe.
3 Wobhala igama lika-Aron entongeni yakwaLevi; kuba yoba nye intonga yentloko yendlu yooyise.
4 Uze uzibeke ententeni yokuhlangana phambi kwesingqino, apho ndihlangana nani khona.
5 Kothi indoda endinyule yona, intonga yayo idubule; ndikuphelise phambi kwam ukukrokra koonyana bakaSirayeli, ababenikrokrela ngako.
6 Wathetha ke uMoses koonyana bakaSirayeli; zonke iinkulu zabo zamnika iintonga nganye, intonga yanye kwinkulu, ngokwezindlu zooyise, zalishumi elinambini iintonga. Intonga ka-Aron yabe iphakathi kweentonga zazo.
7 Wazibeka uMoses iintonga phambi koYehova, ententeni yesingqino.
8 Kwathi ngengomso, wangena uMoses ententeni yesingqino; nantso intonga ka-Aron, wendlu kaLevi, idubule yaphuma amathupha, yatyatyamba iintyantyambo, zavuthwa iiamangile.
9 Waphuma uMoses neentonga zonke, evela kuYehova weza nazo koonyana bonke bakaSirayeli. Bakhangela, bathabatha elowo intonga yakhe.
10 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yibuyisele intonga ka-Aron phambi kwesingqino igcinwe, ukuba ibe ngumqondiso kwabaneenkani, ukuphelise ukukrokra kwabo phambi kwam, bangafi.
11 Wenza ke uMoses; njengoko uYehova abemwisele umthetho, wenjenjalo.
12 Bathetha oonyana bakaSirayeli kuMoses, bathi, Yabona, siyabhubha, siyaphela, siyaphela sonke.
13 Bonke abasondelayo, abasondela emnqubeni kaYehova, baya kufa. Siya kubhubha sigqibele na?




Isahluko 18

1 Wathi uYehova kuAron, Wena noonyana bakho, nendlu kayihlo ndawonyenawe, nobuthwala ubugwenxa obenziwe kwindawo engcwele; wena noonyana bakho ndawonye nawe nobuthwala ubugwenxa bobubingeleli benu.
2 Kananjalo abazalwana bakho, isizwe sakwaLevi, isizwe sikayihlo, wobasondeza nawe, banamathele kuwe, balungiselele wena; wena ke, noonyana bakho ndawonye nawe, phambi kwentente yesingqino.
3 Bogcina isigxina sakho nesigxina sentente yonke; kodwa empahleni yengcwele nasesibingelelweni mabangasondeli, ukuze bangafi bona aba kwanani.
4 Bonamathela kuwe, bagcine isigxina sentente yokuhlangana emsebenzini wonke wayo intente; ke owase unzini aze angasondeli kuni.
5 Nize nigcine isigxina sengcwele nesigxina sesibingelo, kungabuyi kubhekho burhalarhume phezu koonyana bakaSirayeli.
6 Mna ke, yabona, ndibathabathile abazalwana benu, abaLevi, phakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli; nibanikiwe bangumnikelo kuYehova wokusebenza umsebenzi wentente yokuhlangana.
7 Ke wena noonyana bakho ndawonye nawe, nobugcina ububingeleli benu ezintweni zonke zesibingelelo, nangaphaya komkhusane; nisebenze umsebenzi. Ndininika ububingeleli ukuba bube ngumsebenzi eniwunikiweyo. Owasemzini osondelayo uya kubulawa.
8 Wathetha uYehova kuAron, esithi, Yabona, mna ndikunika isigxina semirhumo yam, ezintweni zonke ezingcwele zoonyana bakaSirayeli; ndisinika wena noonyana bakho sibe ngumxhesho, sibe ngummiselo ongunaphakade.
9 Yile into eyoba yeyakho ezintweni eziyingcwele kangcwele, ekudleni kwasemlilweni: yonke imisondezo yabo, eminikelweni yabo yokudla, nasemadinini abo onke esono, nasemadinini abo onke etyala, abayibuyisela kum, yoba ziinto eziyingcwele kangcwele kuwe nakoonyana bakho.
10 Nozidla engcweleni kangcwele; yonke into eyindoda yozidla; zoba ngcwele kuwe.
11 Yile into eyoba yeyakho: umrhumo wesipho sabo emitshangatshangisweni yonke yoonyana bakaSirayeli ndiwunika wena, noonyana bakho, neentombi zakho ndawonye nawe, ube ngummiselo ongunaphakade. Bonke abahlambulukileyo endlwini yakho bowudla.
12 Konke ukutyeba kweoli, konke ukutyeba kwewayini entsha, nokwengqolowa, ulibo lwezo zinto baya kuzinika uYehova, ndikunika lona.
13 Iintlahlela zeento zonke ezisezweni labo, abazizisa kuYehova, zoba zezakho; bonke abahlambulukileyo endlwini yakho bozidla.
14 Zonke izinto ezisingelwe phantsi kwaSirayeli zoba zezakho.
15 Zonke izinto ezivula isizalo kwinyama yonke, abaya kuzisondeza kuYehova, ebantwini nasezinkomeni, zoba zezakho. Kodwa wona amazibulo abantu wowakhulula ngokuwamisela; amazibulo ezinto ezizitho zine eziziinqambi wowakhulula ngokuwamisela.
16 Ukukhululwa komntu ke womkhulula ngokummisela, uthabathela kumntwana onyanga-nye, ngokulinganisela kwakho isilivere yeeshekele ezintlanu ngokweshekele yengcwele, eziigera ezimashumi mabini.
17 Kodwa amazibulo eenkomo, namazibulo ezimvu, namazibulo eebhokhwe, akuyi kuwakhulula ngokuwamisela. Angcwele wona; igazi lawo wolitshiza esibingelelweni, uqhumisele ngamanqatha awo; kukudla kwasemlilweni ke oko, livumba elithozamisayo kuYehova.
18 Inyama yawo yoba yeyakho; njengencum yomtshangatshangiso, nanjengomlenze wasekunene, yoba yeyakho.
19 Yonke imirhumo engcwele, abayirhumela uYehova oonyana bakaSirayeli, ndiyinika wena, noonyana bakho, neentombi zakho ndawonye nawe, ibe ngummiselo ongunaphakade; ingumnqophiso wetyuwa ongunaphakade phambi koYehova, kuwe nakwimbewu yakho ndawonye nawe.
20 Wathi uYehova kuAron, Ezweni labo akuyi kuba nalifa, akuyi kuba nasabelo phakathi kwabo; ndisisabelo sakho nelifa lakho phakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli.
21 Uyabona, oonyana bakaLevi ndibanika zonke izishumi kwaSirayeli, ukuba zibe lilifa, ngenxa yomsebenzi wabo abasebenza wona, umsebenzi wentente yokuhlangana;
22 bangaphindi oonyana bakaSirayeli basondele ententeni yokuhlangana, hleze bathwale isono bafe.
23 Ke bona abaLevi bosebenza umsebenzi wentente yokuhlangana, babuthwale ubugwenxa babo; ngummiselo ongunaphakade ezizukulwaneni zenu. Abayi kuba nalifa phakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli.
24 Ngokuba isishumi soonyana bakaSirayeli, abasirhumela uYehova umrhumo, ndisinika abaLevi sibe lilifa. Ngenxa yoko ndithe kubo, Mabangabi nalifa phakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli.
25 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi,
26 Thetha kubaLevi, uthi kubo, Xa nithe nasithabatha koonyana bakaSirayeli isishumi endininika sona, esiphuma kubo sililifa lenu, norhuma ngaso umrhumo kaYehova, ngesishumi sesishumi.
27 Wothi umrhumo wenu ubalelwe kuni uyingqolowa yasesandeni, uyinzaliseko yasesixovulelweni.
28 Ngokunjalo nani norhuma umrhumo kaYehova ngezishumi zenu zonke enizithabathayo koonyana bakaSirayeli, nimnika uAron umbingeleli kuzo umrhumo kaYehova.
29 Eminikelweni yonke eniyinikiweyo, norhuma imirhumo yonke kaYehova; ekutyebeni kwayo konke norhuma into yakhe eyingcwele ivela kuyo.
30 Uze uthi ke kubo, Ekurhumeni kwenu ukutyeba kwayo, kobalelwa kubaLevi, ilungeniselo lwesanda, ilungeniselo lwesixovulelo.
31 Nokudla oko ezindaweni zonke, nina nezindlu zenu; kuba ngumvuzo wenu ngenxa yomsebenzi wenu ententeni yokuhlangana.
32 Anisayi kuzithwalisa zono ngenxa yoko ekurhumeni kwenu ukutyeba kwayo okukuyo; anisayi kuzihlambela izinto ezingcwele zoonyana bakaSirayeli; anisayi kufa.




Isahluko 19

1 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses nakuAron, esithi,
2 Nguwo lo ummiselo womyalelo awumisileyo uYehova, esithi, Thetha koonyana bakaSirayeli, bakuzisele ithokazi elibomvu eligqibeleleyo, elingenasiphako, ekungabekwanga dyokhwe kulo;
3 nilinike uElazare umbingeleli, alise ngaphandle kweminquba, lixhelelwe phambi kwakhe.
4 Wocaphula ke uElazare umbingeleli egazini lalo ngomnwe wakhe, alifefe ngaphambili ententeni yokuhlangana izihlandlo ezisixhenxe;
5 litshiswe ithokazi phambi kwakhe, sitshiswe isikhumba salo, nenyama yalo, negazi lalo, ndawonye nomswane walo.
6 Umbingeleli wothabatha ke umsedare, nehisope, nosinga olubomvu, aziphose ezo nto phakathi kokutsha kwethokazi;
7 ahlambe iingubo zakhe umbingeleli, ahlambe umzimba wakhe ngamanzi, angene emveni koko eminqubeni, abe yinqambi umbingeleli kude kuhlwe.
8 Lowo ulitshisileyo makazihlambe iingubo zakhe ngamanzi, ahlambe umzimba ngamanzi, abe yinqambi kude kuhlwe.
9 Indoda ehlambulukileyo yoluwola uthuthu lwethokazi, ilubeke ngaphandle kweminquba endaweni emhlophe, lugcinelwe ibandla loonyana bakaSirayeli, lube lolwamanzi okuhlamba ukungcola: lidini lesono eli.
10 Oluwolayo uthuthu lwethokazi wazihlamba iingubo zakhe, abe yinqambi kude kuhlwe; kube ngummiselo ongunaphakade koonyana bakaSirayeli, nakowolunye uhlanga oluphambukele phakathi kwabo.
11 Ochukumisa ofileyo kuzo izidumbu zabantu, woba yinqambi iintsuku ezisixhenxe.
12 Wothi ngomhla wesithathu nangomhla wesixhenxe azihlambulule isono, ahlambululeke ke. Ukuba ke akathanga azihlambulule isono ngomhla wesithathu nangomhla wesixhenxe akayi kuba uhlambulukile.
13 Bonke abo bachukumisa ofileyo, isidumbu somntu, bangazihlambululi isono, bawenza inqambi umnquba kaYehova. Wonqunyulwa ungabikho kwaSirayeli loo mphefumlo; ngokuba engatshizwanga ngamanzi okuhlamba ukungcola phezu kwakhe, woba yinqambi; ubunqambi bakhe busekuye.
14 Nguwo lo umyalelo xa athe umntu wafela ententeni; bonke abo bangena ententeni, nabo bonke abasukuba besesententeni, boba ziinqambi iintsuku ezisixhenxe.
15 Zonke izitya ezivulekileyo, ezingenasiciko sibotshiweyo, ziziinqambi.
16 Bonke abasukuba bemchukumisa emaphandleni obulewe ngekrele, nokuba ngofele khona, nokuba lithambo lomntu, nokuba lingcwaba: bona boba ziinqambi iintsuku ezisixhenxe.
17 Bomcaphulela oyinqambi eluthuthwini lokutsha kwedini lesono, kubekwe phezu kwalo amanzi aphilileyo ngesitya;
18 indoda ehlambulukileyo ithabathe ihisope, iyithi nkxu emanzini, ifefe intente, neempahla zonke, nabantu ababekuyo, nalowo uchukumise ithambo, nobuleweyo, nofileyo, nokuba ke kusengcwabeni.
19 Wofefa ohlambulukileyo koyinqambi ngomhla wesithathu nangomhla wesixhenxe, amhlambulule ke isono ngomhla wesixhenxe, azihlambe iingubo zakhe, ahlambe umzimba ngamanzi; wohlambuluka ke ngokuhlwa.
20 Ke umntu osukuba eyinqambi, angazihlambululi isono, loo mphefumlo mawunqunyulwe phakathi kwesikhungu; ngokuba uyenze inqambi ingcwele kaYehova, akatshizwa ngamanzi okuhlamba ukungcola; uyinqambi.
21 Woba ngummiselo ongunaphakade kubo: okokuba ofefa ngamanzi okuhlamba ukungcola, makazihlambe iingubo zakhe; nalowo uchukumisa amanzi okuhlamba ukungcola woba yinqambi kude kuhlwe.
22 Yonke into asukuba eyichukumisa oyinqambi yoba yinqambi; nomphefumlo omchukumisayo woba yinqambi kude kuhlwe.

10 Wasibizela ndawonye uMoses noAron isikhungu phambi kwengxondorha leyo, wathi kubo, Khanive, nina baneenkani. Sinikhuphele amanzi kule ngxondorha na?
11 Wasiphakamisa uMoses isandla sakhe, wayibetha ingxondorha ngentonga yakhe izihlandlo zazibini; aphuma amanzi amaninzi, lasela ibandla neenkomo zalo.
12 Wathi uYehova kuMoses nakuAron, Ngokokuba ningakholwanga kum, ukuba nindingcwalise emehlweni oonyana bakaSirayeli, ngoko aniyi kusingenisa esi sikhungu ezweni endibanika lona.
13 Ngawo lawo amanzi aseMeribha, ababambana ngawo oonyana bakaSirayeli noYehova, waza wazingcwalisela bona.
14 UMoses wasusa izigidimi eKadeshe, zaya kuthi kukumkani wakwaEdom, Utsho umzalwana wakho uSirayeli ukuthi, Wena uyakwazi konke ukuxhamleka esafumanana nako.
15 Behla oobawo, baya eYiputa, sahlala eYiputa imihla emininzi. Asiphatha kakubi amaYiputa, thina noobawo bethu;
16 sakhala kuYehova, waliva ilizwi lethu; wathuma isithunywa, sasikhupha eYiputa. Nanku ke siseKadeshe, umzi osekupheleni komda wakho.
17 Makhe sicande ezweni lakho. Asiyi kucanda masimini nasezidiliyeni. Asiyi kusela manzi amaqula. Sohamba ngomendo wenkosi; asiyi kuthi gu bucala siye ekunene nasekhohlo side sicande emdeni wakho.
18 Wathi uEdom kuye, Uze ungacandi kum, hleze ndiphume ndinekrele, ndikuhlangabeze.
19 Bathi oonyana bakaSirayeli kuye, Sonyuka ngomendo. Ukuba sithe sasela amanzi akho, mna nemfuyo yam, ndokuhlawulela. Akukho nto, ndocanda nje kodwa, ndihamba ngeenyawo.
20 Wathi, Uze ungacandi. Watsho waphuma uEdom, wamhlangabeza enento eninzi yabantu, enesandla esithe nkqi.
21 Wala uEdom ukumvumela uSirayeli ukuba acande emdeni wakhe. Wajika ke uSirayeli, wemka kuye.
22 Banduluka eKadeshe beza oonyana bakaSirayeli, ibandla lonke, entabeni yeHore.
23 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses nakuAron entabeni yeHore, emdeni welizwe lakwaEdom, wathi,
24 UAron makahlanganiselwe kwabakowabo; ngokuba akayi kungena ezweni endilinika oonyana bakaSirayeli, ngenxa yokuba nawuphikisayo umlomo wam emanzini embambano.
25 Thabatha uAron noElazare unyana wakhe, ubanyuse entabeni yeHore;
26 umhlube uAron iingubo zakhe, uzambathise uElazare unyana wakhe. UAron wohlanganiselwa kwabakowabo, afele khona.
27 Wenza uMoses njengoko uYehova wamwiselayo umthetho; benyuka entabeni yeHore phambi kwebandla lonke.
28 UMoses wamhluba uAron iingubo zakhe, wazambathisa uElazare unyana wakhe. Wafela khona uAron encotsheni yentaba. Wehla uMoses noElazare entabeni.
29 Lakubona lonke ibandla ukuba uAron uphume umphefumlo, bamlilela uAron imihla emashumi mathathu, yonke indlu yakwaSirayeli.

13 Wavuka uBhileham kusasa, wathi kubathetheli bakaBhalaki, Yiyani ezweni lenu; ngokuba uYehova uyala ukundivumela ndihambe nani.
14 Besuka ke abathetheli bakwaMowabhi, baya kuBhalaki, bathi, Walile uBhileham ukuza nathi.

19 Khanihlale apha ke nani ngobu busuku, udide ndiyazi into aya kuyongeza uYehova, ayithethe kum.
20 Wafika uThixo kuBhileham ebusuku, wathi kuye, Ukuba la madoda afike kuwe eza kukubiza, suka uhambe nawo; ke ilizwi endolithetha kuwe, uze wenze lona lodwa.
21 Wavuka uBhileham kusasa, wayibopha imazi yakhe ye-esile, wahamba nabathetheli abo bakwaMowabhi.
22 Wavutha umsindo kaThixo, ngokuba wahambayo. Sema isithunywa sikaYehova endleleni ukuba simchase. Wayekhwele e-esileni lakhe, enamadodana akwakhe omabini.
23 Iesile lasibona isithunywa sikaYehova simi endleleni, sirhole ikrele laso ngesandla saso, lathi gu bucala iesile endleleni, laya entsimini. UBhileham walibetha iesile, elisongela endleleni.
24 Sema isithunywa sikaYehova engxingweni yezidiliya, iludonga ngapha, iludonga ngapha.
25 Iesile lasibona isithunywa sikaYehova, lagudla udonga, lalugudla unyawo lukaBhileham ngodonga; waphinda walibetha.

28 Wawuvula ke uYehova umlomo we-esile, lathi kuBhileham, Ndikwenze ntoni na, ukuba undibethe lamaxesha mathathu?
29 Wathi uBhileham kwiesile, Kungokuba ufekethe ngam; akwaba bendiphethe ikrele ngesandla sam; inene, ngendikubulele ngoku!
30 Lathi iesile kuBhileham, Andililo iesile lakho na okhwela kulo, kuseloko wabakhoyo unanamhla? Ndiqhelile na ukwenjenje kuwe? Wathi, Hayi.
31 Wawavula uYehova amehlo kaBhileham, wasibona isithunywa sikaYehova simi endleleni, sirhole ikrele lasongesandla saso. Wathoba waqubuda ngobuso bakhe.
32 Sathi kuye isithunywa sikaYehova, Ulibethele ntoni na iesile lakho la maxesha mathathu? Yabona, kuphume mna ukuza kukuchasa; ngokuba ekuboneni kwam le ndlela iseyelisela.
33 Landibona iesile, lacezela phaya kum la maxesha omathathu; koko lacezela phaya ngenxa yam, okanye ngendikubulele ngoku wena, ndalisindisa lona.
34 Wathi uBhileham kwisithunywa sikaYehova, Ndonile, kuba bendingazi ukuba wena uze kundimela endleleni; ngoku, ukuba kubi emehlweni akho, ndobuya.
35 Sathi isithunywa sikaYehova kuBhileham, Hamba namadoda lawo; ke ilizwi endolithetha kuwe, uze uthethe lona lodwa. Wahamba ke uBhileham nabathetheli bakaBhalaki.
36 Weva uBhalaki ukuba uBhileham uyeza. Waphuma waya kumhlangabeza emzini wakwaMowabhi osemdeni waseArnon, ekupheleni komda.
37 Wathi uBhalaki kuBhileham, Andikuthumelanga na ndiqinisile ukuba ndikubize? Yini na ukuba ungezi kum? Ndihleli nje, andinako na ukukuzukisa?
38 Wathi uBhileham kuBhalaki, Uyabona, ndifikile kuwe; ndinako na ke ngoku ukuthetha into eyiyo? Ilizwi alibekayo uThixo emlonyeni wam, ndiya kuthetha lona.
39 Wahamba uBhileham noBhalaki, bafika eKiriyati-hutsoti.

8 Ndothini na ukuqalekisa angamqalekisiyo uThixo? Ndothini na ukubhavumela angambhavumeliyo uYehova?

18 Wasusela ngomzekeliso wakhe, wathi, Suka ume, Bhalaki uve; Ndibekele indlebe, nyana kaTsipore.
19 UThixo akamntu ukuba athethe amanga, Akanyana waluntu ukuba azohlwaye. Etshilo nje yena, akayi kwenza na? Ethethile nje, akayi kufeza na?
20 Yabona, ndamkele ukusikelela; Usikelele, ke andinakukubuyisa.
21 Akaboni butshinga kuYakobi, Akaboni bubi kuSirayeli. UYehova uThixo wakhe unaye, Ukuduma kokumkani kuphakathi kwakhe.
22 UThixo umkhupha eYiputa; Amendu akhe anjengawenqu.
23 Akukho zihlabo ngoYakobi, Akukho kuvumisa ngoSirayeli. Ngexesha elililo, kuthethwa kuYakobi nakuSirayeli Into ayenzayo uThixo.
24 Yabona, abantu besuka njengengonyamakazi; Baziphakamisa njengengonyam’ induna. Abalali phantsi, bade badle okuqwengiweyo, Basele igazi labahlatyiweyo.
25 Wathi uBhalaki kuBhileham, Uze ungabi sabaqalekisa, uze ungabi sabasikelela.
26 Waphendula uBhileham wathi kuBhalaki, Bendingathethanga na kuwe ndathi, Konke akuthethayo uYehova ndiya kwenza kona?
27 Wathi uBhalaki kuBhileham, Khawuze ndikuse ndaweni yimbi; mhlawumbi kolunga emehlweni kaThixo, ukuba undiqalekisele ke bona khona.

10 Ukuba ithe ayaba nabazalwana, nolinika abazalwana bakayise ilifa layo.
11 Ukuba uyise uthe akaba nabazalwana, ilifa layo nolinika umzalwana wayo okufuphi kuyo emizalwaneni yayo, alidle ilifa. Woba ngummiselo ke wokugweba lowo koonyana bakaSirayeli, njengoko uYehova wamwiselayo umthetho uMoses.
12 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Nyuka uye kule ntaba yeAbharim, ulikhangele ilizwe endilinike oonyana bakaSirayeli, ulikhangele;
13 uhlanganiselwe kwabakowenu nawe, njengokuba wahlanganiselwayo kubo uAron, umkhuluwa wakho;
14 njengokuba nawuphikisayo umlomo wam entlango yeTsin, embambanweni yebandla, endaweni yokundingcwalisa emanzini emehlweni abo. Lawo ngamanzi embambano aseKadeshe, entlango yeTsin.
15 Wathetha uMoses kuYehova, esithi,
16 UYehova, uThixo woomoya benyama yonke, makamise indoda yokuvelela ibandla;
17 eya kuphuma phambi kwabo, ingene phambi kwabo, ibakhuphe, ibangenise; lingabi njengezimvu ezingenamalusi ibandla likaYehova.
18 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Zithabathele uYoshuwa, unyana kaNun, indoda okuyo umoya, ucinezele ngesandla sakho phezu kwakhe,
19 ummise phambi koElazare umbingeleli, naphambi kwebandla lonke, umwisele umthetho emehlweni abo;
20 uthabathe kwindili yakho, ubeke phezu kwakhe, ukuze limve lonke ibandla loonyana bakaSirayeli.
21 Maze eme phambi koElazare umbingeleli, yena ambuzele ukugweba kweeUrim phambi koYehova, baphume ngokomlomo wakhe, bangene ngokomlomo wakhe, yena noonyana bonke bakaSirayeli ndawonye naye, nebandla lonke.
22 Wenza ke uMoses njengoko uYehova wamwiselayo umthetho. Wamthabatha uYoshuwa, wammisa phambi koElazare umbingeleli, naphambi kwebandla lonke;
23 wacinezela ngezandla zakhe phezu kwakhe, wamwisela umthetho, njengoko uYehova wathethayo ngoMoses.

1 Wathetha uMoses kwiintloko zezizwe zoonyana bakaSirayeli, esithi, Lilo eli ilizwi awise umthetho ngalo uYehova:
2 Xa athe umntu wabhambathisa isibhambathiso kuYehova, nokuba ufunge isifungo sokuwubopha umphefumlo wakhe ngokuzikhanyeza, makangalihlambeli ilizwi lakhe; makenze ngokwento yonke ephume emlonyeni wakhe.
3 Xa ithe inkazana yabhambathisa isibhambathiso kuYehova, nokuba ithe yazibopha ngokuzikhanyeza, isendlwini kayise, isebuncinaneni bayo;
4 wasiva uyise isibhambathiso sayo nokuzikhanyeza kwayo, ebophe ngako umphefumlo wayo, wathi cwaka uyise kuyo: mazime zonke izibhambathiso zayo; nokuzikhanyeza kwayo konke, ebophe umphefumlo wayo ngako, makume.
5 Ukuba uthe uyise wayithiba ngomhla wokuziva kwakhe izibhambathiso zayo zonke, nokuzikhanyeza kwayo, ebophe umphefumlo wayo ngako, akuyi kuma; uYehova woyixolela, ngokuba eyithibile uyise.
6 Ke ukuba ithe yenda inesibhambathiso, nokuba inokuphololoza komlomo wayo, ebophe umphefumlo wayongako,
7 yeva indoda, yathi cwaka kuyo ngomhla wokuva kwayo, mazime izibhambathiso zayo; nokuzikhanyeza kwayo, ebophe umphefumlo wayo ngako, makume.
8 Ukuba indoda yayo ithe yayithiba ngomhla wokuva kwayo, yasaphula isibhambathiso sayo esiphezu kwayo, nokuphololoza komlomo wayo, ebophe umphefumlo wayo ngako: uYehova woyixolela.
9 Isibhambathiso somhlolokazi nesowaliweyo, yonke into abophe umphefumlo wakhe ngayo, mayime phezu kwakhe.
10 Ukuba umfazi uthe wenza isibhambathiso esendlwini yendoda yakhe, nokuba uthe wabopha umphefumlo wakhe ngokuzikhanyeza ngesifungo,
11 yeva indoda yakhe, yathi cwaka kuye, ayamthiba, mazime zonke izibhambathiso zakhe; makume ukuzikhanyeza kwakhe, abophe ngako umphefumlo wakhe.
12 Ukuba ithe indoda yakhe yakwaphula mpela ngomhla wokuva kwayo, yonke into ephume emlonyeni wakhe ngezibhambathiso zakhe, nangokuzikhanyeza komphefumlo wakhe, mayingemi; indoda yakhe iyaphule, uYehova womxolela.
13 Zonke izibhambathiso, nezifungo zonke zokuzikhanyeza, zokuthoba umphefumlo, indoda yakhe ingazimisa, indoda yakhe ingazaphula.
14 Ukuba indoda yakhe ithe cwaka, yathi tu kuye imihla ngemihla, iyazimisa zonke izibhambathiso zakhe, nokuzikhanyeza kwakhe konke okuphezu kwakhe iya kukumisa; ngokuba yathi cwaka kuye ngomhla wokuva kwayo.
15 Ukuba ithe yakwaphula mpela emva kokuva kwayo, yobuthwala ubugwenxa bakhe.
16 Yiyo leyo imimiselo, uYehova awamwisela umthetho ngayo uMoses, phakathi kwendoda nomkayo, phakathi koyise nentombi yakhe, isebuncinaneni bayo, isendlwini kayise.

4 iwaka esizweni, iwaka esizweni, ezizweni zonke zakwaSirayeli, nowathuma aphume umkhosi.
5 Kwakhutshwa ke emawakeni akwaSirayeli iwaka esizweni, iwaka esizweni, alishumi elinamabini amawaka, exhobele ukuphuma umkhosi.

8 Ababulala ookumkani bamaMidiyan ndawonye nababuleweyo babo, uEvi, noRekem, noTsure, noHure, noRebha, ookumkani abahlanu bamaMidiyan; noBhileham, unyana kaBhehore, ambulala ngekrele.
9 Oonyana bakaSirayeli babathimba abafazi bakwaMidiyan, neentsapho zabo; namaqegu abo onke, nemfuyo yabo yonke, nobutyebi babo bonke babuphanga.
10 Bayitshisa ngomlilo imizi yabo yonke ezindaweni zokuhlala kwabo, neengqili zabo zonke;

14 UMoses wanoburhalarhume kubo abaveleli bomkhosi, abathetheli-waka nabathetheli-khulu, ababevela emkhosini waloo mfazwe.
15 Wathi uMoses kubo, Niwasindisile na onke amankazana?
16 Yabonani, ngawo la athi ngelizwi likaBhileham amenezisa oonyana bakaSirayeli kuYehova ngenxa kaPehore, kwabakho isibetho ebandleni likaYehova.
17 Yibulaleni ngoko yonke into eyindoda ezintsatsheni; namankazana onke ayazileyo indoda ngokulala nayo wabulaleni.
18 Ke zonke iintsapho emankazaneni ezingalalanga nandoda, zisindiseni.
19 Ke nina misani iintente ngaphandle kweminquba iintsuku ezisixhenxe. Bonke ababulele umntu, bonke abachukumise obuleweyo, nozihlambulula isono ngomhla wesithathu nangomhla wesixhenxe, nina nabo nibathimbileyo.
20 Neengubo zonke, neempahla zonke zezikhumba, neento zonke ezenziwe ngoboya bebhokhwe, neempahla zonke zomthi, nozihlambulula.
21 Wathi uElazare umbingeleli kumadoda omkhosi abeye kuloo mfazwe, Nguwo lowo ummiselo womyalelo uYehova ammiseleyo uMoses.
22 Kodwa igolide, nesilivere, nobhedu, nesinyithi, netin, nelothe,
23 yonke into enokumelana nomlilo, noyicandisa emlilweni, ihlambuluke, kodwa ke ihlanjululwe ngamanzi okuhlamba ukungcola. Ke yonke into engenako ukumelana nomlilo, noyicandisa emanzini.
24 Ize nihlambe iingubo zenu ngomhla wesixhenxe; nohlambuluka ke, ningene emveni koko eminqubeni.
25 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, wathi,
26 Bala inani lamaxhoba athinjiweyo, awabantu naweenkomo, wenanoElazare umbingeleli, neentloko zezindlu zooyise zebandla.
27 Uze uwahlule kubini amaxhoba, phakathi kwabayilwileyo imfazwe baphuma umkhosi, nebandla lonke:
28 urhumele uYehova inani kumadoda okulwa aphume umkhosi, umphefumlo ube mnye emakhulwini amahlanu, kubo abantu, nakuzo iinkomo, nakuwo amaesile, nakuyo impahla emfutshane.
29 Nothabatha esiqingatheni sabo, unike uElazare umbingeleli, ibe ngumrhumo kaYehova.
30 Esiqingatheni soonyana bakaSirayeli wothabatha ibe nye, ekhethiweyo emashumini amahlanu kubo abantu, nakuzo iinkomo, nakuwo amaesile, nakuyo impahla emfutshane, nakuwo amaqegu onke, unike abaLevi abagcina isigxina somnquba kaYehova.
31 Wenza ke uMoses noElazare umbingeleli njengoko uYehova wamwiselayo umthetho uMoses.
32 Ke amaxhoba, amasalela ezinto eziphangiweyo, ababeziphangile abantu bomkhosi, aba ngamakhulu omathandathu amawaka, anamanci asixhenxe amawaka, anesihlanu samawaka empahla emfutshane;

34 ngamashumi omathandathu amawaka, anawaka-nye amaesile;
35 neziqu zabantu emankazaneni angalalanga nandoda, zonke iziqu ngamashumi omathathu anesibini samawaka.
36 Isiqingatha, isabelo sabaphuma umkhosi ngokwenani, saba yimpahla emfutshane engamakhulu omathathu amawaka, anamanci mathathu amawaka, anesixhenxe samawaka, anamakhulu mahlanu;

38 Iinkomo, ngamashumi omathathu amawaka, anesithandathu samawaka; kuzo, inani likaYehova ngamashumi osixhenxe anambini.
39 Amaesile, ngamashumi omathandathu amawaka, anamakhulu omahlanu; kuwo, inani likaYehova ngamashumi omathandathu ananye.
40 Iziqu zabantu, lishumi elinesithandathu lamawaka; kuzo, inani likaYehova, iziqu zabantu, ngamashumi omathathu anazibini.

23 Ke ukuba anithanga nenjenjalo, yabonani, noba nonile kuYehova, nazi ukuba isono senu siya kunifumana.
24 Zakheleni imizi iintsapho zenu, nezibaya zempahla yenu emfutshane, niyenze le nto iphumileyo emlonyeni wenu.

32 Thina siya kuwela sixhobile phambi koYehova, siye ezweni lakwaKanan, ukuze ibe yeyethu inzuzo yelifa lethu nganeno kweYordan.

2 Bawisele oonyana bakaSirayeli umthetho, ukuba babanike abaLevi elifeni lenzuzo yabo imizi yokubabahlale kuyo, nibanike abaLevi namadlelo ngasemizini yabo ngeenxa zonke.
3 Imizi yabo yoba yeyokuhlala, amadlelo ayo abe ngaweenkomo zabo, nempahla yabo, nento yabo yonke ephilileyo.
4 Amadlelo emizi enobanika abaLevi othabathela eludongeni lomzi ase ngaphandle, abe ziikubhite eziliwaka ngeenxa zonke;
5 nilinganise nithabathela ngaphandle komzi, icala lasempumalanga libe ziikubhite ezingamawaka amabini, icala langasezantsi libe ziikubhite ezingamawaka amabini, icala lasentshonalanga libe ziikubhite ezingamawaka amabini, icala langasentla libe ziikubhite ezingamawaka amabini, umzi ubesesazulwini. Lawo oba ngamadlelo emizi yabo.
6 Imizi eniya kuyinika abaLevi yoba nemizi emithandathu yokusabela, enobanika ukuba abalekele kuyo umbulali, kuleyo nongeze imizi engamashumi amane anambini.
7 Yonke imizi enobanika yona abaLevi yoba yimizi engamashumi amane anesibhozo, anamadlelo ayo.
8 Imizi enobanika enzuzweni yoonyana bakaSirayeli noyenza mininzi kwesininzi, niyenze mincinane kwesincinane; eso isizwe, ngokomlinganiso welifa laso esiya kulidla, sobanika abaLevi emizini yaso.
9 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi,
10 Thetha koonyana bakaSirayeli, uthi kubo, Xa nithe nayiwela iYordan, nafika ezweni lakwaKanan,
11 nozihlelela imizi ibe yimizi yenu yokusabela, abalekele kuyo umbulali obulele umntu ngengozi.
12 Yoba yimizi yenu yokusaba kumphindezeli, angafi umbulali, ade eme phambi kwebandla, lithethwe ityala lakhe.
13 Ke imizi enobanika yoba yimizi yenu yokusabela emithandathu.
14 Nganeno kweYordan nobanika imizi emithathu; ezweni lakwaKanan nobanika imizi emithathu, ibe yimiziyokusabela.
15 Loo mizi mithandathu yoba yeyokusabela koonyana bakaSirayeli, nakumphambukeli, nakundwendwe oluphakathi kwenu, babalekele kuyo bonke ababulele umntu ngengozi.
16 Ukuba ubani uthe wambetha umntu ngentsimbi, wafa, ungumbulali; wobulawa afe umbulali lowo.
17 Ukuba uthe wambetha ngelitye elisesandleni, angafayo ngalo, wafa, ungumbulali; makabulawe afe umbulali lowo.
18 Nokuba uthe wambetha ngento engumthi osesandleni, angafayo ngayo, wafa, ungumbulali; makabulawe afe umbulali lowo.
19 Umphindezeli wegazi wombulala ngokwakhe umbulali lowo; akuqubisana naye wombulala ngokwakhe.
20 Ukuba uthe wamtyhala ngokumthiya, nokuba umgibisele emzonda, wafa;
21 nokuba uthe wambetha ngesandla sakhe ngobutshaba, wafa: makabulawe afe lowo umbethileyo; ungumbulali yena. Umphindezeli wegazi wombulala umbulali lowo akuqubisana naye.
22 Ukuba uthe wamqubula wamtyhala, engenabutshaba, nokuba umgibisele ngempahla nokuba nangayiphi na into, engamzondi,
23 nokuba lilitye angafayo ngalo, engamboni, amwisele ngalo, engenabutshaba naye, engafuni kumenza nto imbi:
24 liya kwahlula ibandla phakathi kobethileyo nomphindezeli wegazi, ngokwezo zigwebo;
25 limhlangule ibandla umbulali esandleni somphindezeli wegazi, limbuvisele ibandla emzini wokusabela kwakhe, abebalekele kuwo, ahlale kuwo ade afe umbingeleli omkhulu othanjisiweyo ngeoli engcwele.
26 Ukuba umbulali uthe waphuma ngaphandle komda womzi wokusabela kwakhe abebalekele kuwo,
27 umphindezeli wegazi wamfumana engaphandle komda womzi wokusabela kwakhe, umphindezeli wegazi wambulala umbulali lowo, akayi kuba natyala lagazi lowo.
28 Kuba ange ehleli emzini wokusabela kwakhe, kwada kwafa umbingeleli omkhulu. Ke emveni kukufa kombingeleli omkhulu, umbulali wobuyela emhlabeni wenzuzo yakhe.
29 Ezo zinto zoba ngummiselo wokugweba kuni kwizizukulwana zenu emakhayeni enu onke.
30 Bonke ababulele umntu, makabulawe umbulali lowo ngomlomo wamangqina; kodwa ingqina lilinye aliyikungqina ngomntu afe.
31 Ize ningathabathi lucamagusho ngenxa yomphefumlo wobulali osukuba engongendawo, engowokufa; makabulawe afe.
32 Ize ningathabathi lucamagusho ngenxa yobalekele emzini wokusabela kwakhe, ukuba abuye eze kuhlala emhlabeni wakhe, ade afe umbingeleli.
33 Ize ningalihlambeli ilizwe enikulo, kuba ligazi elihlambela ilizwe. Ilizwe ke alinakucanyagushelwa ngenxa yegazi eliphalaziweyo kulo, kungengagazi lowaliphalazayo.
34 Nize ningalenzi nqambi ke ilizwe enihleli kulo, endihleli kulo; kuba mna, Yehova, ndihleli phakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli.
