Isahluko 1

1 Ngawo la ke amazwi, awawathethayo uMoses kumaSirayeli onke phesheya kweYordan entlango, eArabha, malungana noLwandle oluBomvu, phakathi kweParan, neTofele, neLabhan, neHatseroti, neDizahabhi.
2 Ziintsuku ezilishumi elinalunye ukusuka eHorebhe ngendlela yentaba yakwaSehire, ukuya eKadeshe-bharneha.
3 Ngomnyaka wamashumi omane, ngenyanga yeshumi elinanye, ngolokuqala enyangeni leyo, wathetha uMoses koonyana bakaSirayeli ngako konke uYehova abemwisele umthetho ngako kubo.
4 Emveni kokumbulala kwakhe uSihon ukumkani wama-Amori, obemi eHeshbhon, no-Ogi ukumkani waseBhashan, obemi eAshtaroti nase-Edreyi,
5 phesheya kweYordan ezweni lakwaMowabhi, waqala uMoses ukubaqononondisa lo myalelo, esithi:
6 UYehova uThixo wethu wathetha kuthi eHorebhe, wathi, Kukade nihleli kule ntaba.
7 Jikani ninduluke, niye entabeni yama-Amori, nakubo bonke abamelene nayo, eArabha, ezintabeni, nasesihlanjeni, nakwelasezantsi, nangaselwandle, ezweni lamaKanan, naseLebhanon, nide nise kuwo umlambo omkhulu, umlambo ongumEfrati.
8 Khangelani, ndinisikele ilizwe. Ngenani, nakhe kwelo zwe wafungayo uYehova kooyihlo, ooAbraham noIsake noYakobi, ukuba wolinika bona, nembewu yabo emva kwabo.
9 Ndathi kuni ngelo xesha, Andinakunithwala ndedwa.
10 UYehova uThixo wenu unandisile; nanku namhla ningangeenkwenkwezi zezulu ukuba baninzi kwenu.
11 UYehova uThixo wooyihlo makalongeze inani lenu kaliwaka kunoko lingako, anisikelele njengoko wathethayo kuni.
12 Ndingathini na ukubuthwala ndedwa ubunzima benu, nomthwalo wenu, nembambano yenu?
13 Zikhangeleleni amadoda alumkileyo, aziingqondi, aziwayo, ngokwezizwe zakomawenu, ndiwamise abe ziintloko zenu.
14 Nandiphendula nathi, Ilizwi olithethileyo lilungile ukuba silenze.
15 Ndabathabatha ke abaziintloko zezizwe zakowenu, amadoda alumkileyo, aziwayo, ndawamisa aba ziintloko phezu kwenu: abathetheli-waka, nabathetheli-makhulu, nabathetheli-mashumi ngamahlanu, nabathetheli-mashumi ngamanye, nabaphathi, ngokwezizwe zakomawenu.
16 Ndabawisela umthetho abaphathi benu ngelo xesha, ndathi, Noyilamla into ephakathi kwabazalwana benu, nigwebe ngobulungisa phakathi komntu nomzalwana wakhe, nowasemzini okuye.
17 Ize ningakhethi buso ekugwebeni kwenu; ize nimphulaphule omncinane njengomkhulu, ninganxunguphaliswa bubuso bomntu; ngokuba ukugweba oku kokukaYehova. Indawo eninqabeleyo noyizisa kum, ndiyive.
18 Ndaniwisela umthetho ngelo xesha ngezinto zonke enozenza.
19 Sanduluka eHorebhe, sayihamba yonke laa ntlango inkulu, yoyikekayo nayibonayo, sihamba ngendlela yentaba yama-Amori, njengoko uYehova uThixo wethu wasiyalelayo, sada seza eKadeshe-bharneha.
20 Ndathi ke kuni, Nifikile entabeni yama-Amori, awasinikayo uYehova, uThixo wethu.
21 Khangela, uYehova uThixo wakho ulinikele kuwe ilizwe elo: nyuka wakhe kulo, njengoko wathethayo uYehova uThixo wooyihlo kuwe. Musa ukoyika, ungakwantyi nokunkwantya.
22 Nasondela ke kum nina aba nonke, nathi, Masisuse amadoda, asandulele, asihlolele ilizwe elo, asizisele ilizwi lendlela esonyuka ngayo, nemizi esofika kuyo.
23 Lalunga ke elo zwi emehlweni am, ndathabatha kuni amadoda alishumi elinamabini, indoda yanye esizweni.
24 Ajika ke, enyuka aya entabeni, ada afika esihlanjeni sakwaEshkoli, asihlola.
25 Athabatha isiqhamo selo zwe ngesandla sawo, asiphathela, asizisela ilizwi, athi, Lilizwe elihle asinikayo uYehova uThixo wethu.
26 Kanti noko anivumanga kunyuka, nawuphikisa umlomo kaYehova uThixo wenu.
27 Nakrokra ezintenteni zenu, nathi, Wasikhupha kuba esithiyile uYehova ezweni laseYiputa, ukuze asinikele esandleni sama-Amori, asitshabalalise.
28 Siya kunyukela phi na? Abazalwana bethu bazinyibilikisile iintliziyo zethu, besithi, Abantu bakhulu, bade kunathi; imizi mikhulu, inqatyisiwe yada yesa ezulwini; kananjalo noonyana baka-Anaki sibabone khona.
29 Ndathi ke kuni, Ize ningangcangcazeli, ningaboyiki.
30 NguYehova uThixo wenu, ohamba phambi kwenu. Yena wonilwela, njengako konke awanenzelayo eYiputa emehlweni enu;
31 nasentlango, apho wakubonayo ukukuthwala kukaYehova uThixo wakho, njengomntu ethwele unyana wakhe, ngendlela yonke enahamba ngayo, nada naza kufika kule ndawo.
32 Kanti ke nakwelo zwi anikholwanga nguYehova uThixo wenu,
33 ohamba phambi kwenu endleleni, ukuba anihlolele indawo yokumisa iintente zenu, ngomlilo ebusuku; anibonise indlela enohamba ngayo, ngelifu emini.
34 Waliva uYehova ilizwi lokuthetha kwenu, wanoburhalarhume, wafunga, esithi,
35 Akukho ndoda, kula madoda esi sizukulwana singendawo, iya kukha ilibone ilizwe elihle, elo ndafungayo ukuba ndolinika ooyihlo,
36 ingenguKalebhi unyana kaYefune; wolibona yena. Ndiya kumnika ilizwe awanyathela phezu kwalo, yena noonyana bakhe, ngenxa enokuba emlandele kwaphela uYehova.
37 Kanjalo uYehova wandifuthela nam ngenxa yenu, wathi, Nawe lo akuyi kungena khona.
38 UYoshuwa unyana kaNun, oma phambi kwakho, nguye owongena khona; momeleze, ngokuba yena wowadlisa ilifa elo amaSirayeli.
39 Ke iintsatshana zenu, enibe nisithi zoba lixhoba, nabantwana benu abangakwaziyo namhla okulungileyo nokubi, bona bongena khona; ndolinika bona beme kulo.
40 Ke nina jikani, ninduluke niye entlango ngendlela eya eLwandle oluBomvu.
41 Naphendula, nathi kum, Sonile kuYehova; sonyuka thina, silwe njengako konke asiyalele ngako uYehova uThixo wethu. Naxhoba ke elowo impahla yakhe yokulwa, nenza buphuthuphuthu ukunyuka intaba.
42 Wathi uYehova kum, Yithi kubo, Ize ningenyuki, ize ningalwi; kuba andikhona phakathi kwenu; hleze nigxothwe ziintshaba zenu.
43 Ndathetha kuni, anaphulaphula; nawuphikisa umlomo kaYehova, nagxalathelana ukunyuka intaba.
44 Aphuma ke ama-Amori ami kuloo ntaba, anihlangabeza, anichitha, axelisa iinyosi, anibetha kwaSehire, ada esa eHorma.
45 Nabuya ke nalila phambi koYehova; akaliphulaphula uYehova izwi lenu, akanibekela ndlebe.
46 Ngoko ke nahlala eKadeshe imihla emininzi, njengaloo mihla nayihlalayo apho.




Isahluko 2

1 Sanduluka, sabheka entlango ngendlela eya eLwandle oluBomvu, njengoko uYehova wathetha kum, sayijikeleza intaba yakwaSehire imihla emininzi.
2 Wathetha uYehova kum, wathi,
3 Kukade niyijikeleza le ntaba; bhekani ngasentla,
4 ubawisele abantu umthetho uthi, Niya kugqitha nje emdeni wabazalwana benu, oonyana bakaEsawu, abemi kwaSehire. Baya kunoyika, ize nizilumkele ke kunene.
5 Ize ningabambani nabo; kuba ezweni labo andiyi kuninika nendawo engangokunyathela kwentende yonyawo; ngokuba ndimnikile uEsawu intaba yakwaSehire ukuba ayime.
6 Ukudla nokuthenga kubo ngemali, nidle; namanzi nowemba kubo ngemali, nisele.
7 Kuba uYehova, uThixo wakho, ukusikelele emsebenzini wonke wesandla sakho. Uyakwazi ukuyihamba kwakho le ntlango inkulu; le minyaka imashumi mane uYehova uThixo wakho unawe, akuswelanga nto.
8 Segqitha ke kubazalwana bethu, oonyana bakaEsawu, abemiyo kwaSehire, saphambuka endleleni yeArabha, e-Elati nase-Etsiyon-gebhere. Sajika ke, sadlula ngendlela yentlango yakwaMowabhi.
9 Wathi uYehova kum, Uze ungawabandezeli amaMowabhi, uze ungabambani nawo ulwe nawo; kuba andiyi kukunika nto yelizwe lawo uyihluthe; kuba iAre ndiyinike oonyana bakaLote, ukuba bayime.
10 AmaEma ayemi kulo kudala, engabantu abakhulu, abaninzi, abade njengama-Anaki.
11 Bekusithiwa ngamaRafa nawo, njengama-Anaki; ke amaMowabhi athi ngamaEma.
12 NakwaSehire bekumi amaHori kudala; koko oonyana bakaEsawu bawagqogqa, bawatshabalalisa ebusweni babo, bahlala esikhundleni sawo, njengoko akwenzayo amaSirayeli ezweni lelifa lawo, abelinikwe nguYehova.
13 Ndathi ke, Ndulukani ngoku, niwele umlanjana weZerede; sawuwela ke umlanjana weZerede.
14 Imihla yokuhamba kwethu, sisuka eKadeshe-bharneha side siwele umlanjana weZerede, yaba yiminyaka emashumi mathathu anesibhozo; sada saphela sonke eso sizukulwana samadoda okulwa phakathi komkhosi, njengoko uYehova wawafungelayo.
15 Saye kananjalo isandla sikaYehova siphezu kwawo, ukuba adutywadutywe phakathi komkhosi ade agqitywe.
16 Kwathi, xenikweni onke amadoda okulwa ayegqityiwe, afa phakathi kwabantu,
17 wathetha uYehova kum, esithi,
18 Namhla uya kugqitha emdeni wakwaMowabhi oyiAre,
19 usondele malungana noonyana baka-Amon. Uze ungababandezeli, uze ungabambani nabo; kuba ezweni loonyana baka-Amon andiyi kukunika ndawo yakuma; ngokuba ndilinike oonyana bakaLote ukuba limiwe ngabo.
20 Bekusithiwa lilizwe lamaRafa nalo. Bekumi amaRafa khona kudala; ama-Amon athi ngamaZamzum;
21 engabantu abakhulu, abaninzi, abade njengama-Anaki. UYehova wabatshabalalisa ebusweni babo; babagqogqa, bema esikhundleni sabo;
22 njengoko wabenzelayo oonyana bakaEsawu abemiyo kwaSehire, wawatshabalalisa amaHori ebusweni babo, bawagqogqa, bema esikhundleni sawo unanamhla.
23 Nama-Avi ayemi emizaneni, ada esa eGaza; amaKafetori, awaphumayo kwelamaKafetori, awatshabalalisa, ema esikhundleni sawo.
24 Sukani ninduluke, niwele umlanjana oyiArnon. Yabona, ndimnikele esandleni sakho uSihon ukumkani waseHeshbhon, umAmori, nelizwe lakhe. Qala ukulihlutha, ubambane naye, ulwe naye.
25 Ngale mini ndiya kuqala ukubeka ukunkwantya ngawe nokoyikeka kwakho phezu kwabantu abaphantsi kwezulu lonke, abaya kuluva udaba lwakho bagungqe, bazibhijabhije ngenxa enawe.
26 Ndasusa abathunywa entlango yeKedemoti, baya kuSihon ukumkani waseHeshbhon, benamazwi oxolo okuthi, Ndiyeke ndicande ezweni lakho.
27 Ndohamba ngendlela le yodwa; andiyi kuthi gu bucala ndiye ekunene nasekhohlo.
28 Ukudla wondithengela ngemali ndidle, namanzi wondinika ngemali ndisele, ndihambe nje kodwa ngeenyawo;
29 njengoko benza ngako kum oonyana bakaEsawu abemiyo kwaSehire, namaMowabhi abemiyo eAre; ndide ndiwele iYordan, ndiye ezweni asinikayo uYehova uThixo wethu.
30 Akavuma uSihon ukumkani weHeshbhon, ukuba sicande kuye, ngokuba uYehova uThixo wakho wamqinisa isibindi, wayenza ingqoshomba intliziyo yakhe, ukuze amnikele esandleni sakho, njengokuba kunjalo namhla.
31 Wathi uYehova kum, Yabona, ndiqalile ukumnikela kuwe uSihon nelizwe lakhe; qala ukulihlutha, ulidle ilifa ilizwe lakhe.
32 Waphuma ke uSihon wasihlangabeza, yena nabantu bakhe bonke, eza kulwa eYatsa.
33 UYehova uThixo wethu wamnikela kuthi; sambulala, yena noonyana bakhe, nabantu bakhe bonke.
34 Sayithimba yonke imizi yakhe ngelo xesha, sawasingela phantsi amadoda emizi yonke, nabafazi, nabantwana; asasalisa namnye usindayo.
35 Ziinkomo zodwa esazithimbelayo, namaxhoba emizi esayithimbayo.
36 Sathabathela eArohere, eseludinini lomlanjana oyiArnon, emzini osesihlanjeni, sada sesa eGiliyadi, akwabakho mzi usinqabelayo; konke wakunikela kuthi uYehova uThixo wethu.
37 Lilizwe loonyana baka-Amon lodwa, eningasondelanga kulo: lonke icala lomlanjana oyiYabhoki, nemizi yasezintabeni, nento yonke awawisa umthetho ngayo uYehova uThixo wethu.




Isahluko 3

1 Sajika, senyuka ngendlela yaseBhashan; waphuma uOgi ukumkani waseBhashan, wasihlangabeza yena nabantu bakhe bonke, ukuba kuliwe e-Edreyi.
2 Wathi uYehova kum, Musa ukumoyika; ngokuba ndimnikele esandleni sakho, nabantu bakhe bonke, nelizwe lakhe; uya kwenza kuye njengoko wenza ngako kuSihon ukumkani wama-Amori, obemi eHeshbhon.
3 UYehova uThixo wethu wamnikela ke ezandleni zethu uOgi ukumkani waseBhashan, nabantu bakhe bonke; sambulala, kwada akwabakho namnye usindayo.
4 Sayithimba yonke imizi yakhe ngelo xesha, akwabakho mzi singawuthabathanga kubo; imizi yaba mashumi mathandathu, wonke ummandla waseArgobhi, ubukumkani bukaOgi eBhashan.
5 Yonke loo mizi ibinqatyiswe ngodonga oluphakamileyo, namasango, nemivalo; iyodwa imizi yabasemaphandleni, eyabe imininzi kunene.
6 Sayisingela phantsi, njengoko senzayo kuSihon ukumkani waseHeshbhon; sasingela phantsi amadoda emizi yonke, nabafazi, nabantwana.
7 Ke zona iinkomo zonke namaxhoba aloo mizi sazithimbela.
8 Salithabatha ke ngelo xesha ilizwe esandleni sookumkani bobabini bama-Amori, elingaphonoshono kweYordan, lisusela kumlanjana oyiArnon, lada lesa entabeni yeHermon
9 (amaTsidon athi iHermon leyo yiSiriyon, ke ama-Amori athi yiSenire),
10 yonke imizi yehewu, neyelaseGiliyadi lonke, neBhashan yonke, kwada kwesa eSaleka ne-Edreyi, imizi yobukumkani bukaOgi eBhashan.
11 Ngokuba nguOgi yedwa, ukumkani waseBhashan, impunde eyayisele kumaRafa. Nantso ikoyi yakhe, ikoyi yentsimbi; asiyiyo na leya iseRabha yakoonyana baka-Amon? Iziikubhite ezisithoba ubude bayo, iziikubhite ezine ububanzi bayo, ngokwekubhite yabantu.
12 Elo lizwe salihlutha ngelo xesha, sithabathela eArohere ekumlanjana oyiArnon; nesiqingatha sentaba yeGiliyadi, nemizi yayo ndayinika amaRubhen namaGadi.
13 Amasalela aseGiliyadi naweBhashan yonke, ubukumkani bukaOgi, ndawanika isiqingatha sesizwe sikaManase; wonke ummandla weArgobhi neBhashan yonke, leyo bekusithiwa lilizwe lamaRafa.
14 UYahire, unyana kaManase, wathabatha wonke ummandla weArgobhi, wada wesa emdeni wamaGeshuri namaMahakati, wawubiza ngegama lakhe, wathi iBhashan yiHavoti-yahire, unanamhla.
15 UMakire ndamnika elaseGiliyadi.
16 AmaRubhen namaGadi ndawanika, ndithabathela kwelaseGiliyadi, ndada ke ndesa kumlanjana oyiArnon, empholokhohlweni wesihlambo, naloo mmandla waso, ndada ndesa naseYabhoki emlanjaneni, emdeni woonyana baka-Amon;
17 neArabha, neYordan nommandla wayo, ndithabathela eKinerete, ndada ndesa elwandle lweArabha, uLwandle lweTyuwa, phantsi kwamaxandeka ePisga ngasempumalanga.
18 Ndaniwisela umthetho ngelo xesha, ndisithi, UYehova uThixo wenu uninike eli lizwe ukuba nilihluthe. Welani nixhobile phambi kwabazalwana benu, oonyana bakaSirayeli, nonke nina bafo banobukroti.
19 Kodwa abafazi benu, nabantwana benu, nemfuyo yenu (ndiyazi ukuba ninemfuyo eninzi), mabahlale emizini yenu endininike yona;
20 ade uYehova abaphumze abazalwana benu njengani, balime nabo ilizwe elo abanika lona uYehova uThixo wenu phesheya kweYordan; nibuyele ke elowo elifeni lakhe endininike lona.
21 UYoshuwa ndamwisela umthetho ngelo xesha, ndisithi, Amehlo akho akubonile konke oku akwenzileyo uYehova uThixo wenu kwaba kumkani bobabini; uya kwenjenjalo ke uYehova kwizikumkani zonke owelela kuzo.
22 Ize ningaboyiki; ngokuba uYehova uThixo wenu nguye onilwelayo.
23 Ndatarhuzisa kuYehova ngelo xesha, ndisithi,
24 Nkosi yam, Yehova, uqalile ukumbonisa umkhonzi wakho ubukhulu bakho, nesandla sakho esithe nkqi; ngokuba nguwuphi na uthixo emazulwini nasehlabathini, ongenza ngokwezenzo zakho, nangokwemisebenzi yakho yobugorha?
25 Makhe ndiwele kaloku, ndilibone ilizwe elo lihle, liphesheya kweYordan, loo ntaba intle, neLebhanon.
26 Wandiphuphumela uYehova ngomsindo ngenxa yenu, akandiphulaphula; wathi uYehova kum, Yanela, musa ukuba saphinda uthethe kum ngale ndawo.
27 Nyuka uye encotsheni yePisga, uphose amehlo akho entshonalanga, nasentla, nasezantsi, nasempumalanga, ulikhangele ngamehlo; ngokuba akuyi kuyiwela le Yordan.
28 UYoshuwa mwisele umthetho, umomeleze, umkhaliphise; ngokuba yena uya kuwela yena phambi kwaba bantu; yena uya kubadlisa ilifa, elilelo lizwe uya kulibona.
29 Sahlala ke esihlanjeni malungana neBhete-pehore.




Isahluko 4

1 Kaloku ke, Sirayeli, yiphulaphule imimiselo namasiko endinifundisa wona, ukuba niwenze; ukuze niphile, ningene, nilime ilizwe aninikayo uYehova uThixo wooyihlo.
2 Ize ningongezi ezwini endiniwisela umthetho ngalo, ize ninganciphisi nto kulo, ukuze niyigcine imithetho kaYehova uThixo wenu, endiniwisela yona.
3 Amehlo enu akubonile oko wakwenzayo uYehova kuBhahali-pehore; ngokuba bonke abo babemlandela uBhahali-pehore, uYehova uThixo wakho ubatshabalalisile phakathi kwakho.
4 Ke nina nanamathelayo kuYehova uThixo wenu, niphilile nonke namhla.
5 Yabonani, ndinifundise imimiselo namasiko, njengoko ndawiselwa umthetho nguYehova uThixo wam, ukuze nenze ngokunjalo phakathi kwelizwe eningena kulo, ukuba nilime.
6 Yigcineni ke niyenze; ngokuba oku bubulumko benu, nengqondo yenu, emehlweni abantu abaya kuyiva yonke le mimiselo; bathi, Olu hlanga lukhulu ngabantu abalumkileyo, abanengqondo bodwa.
7 Ngokuba luluphi na uhlanga olukhulu, oluthixo usondeleyo kulo, njengoYehova uThixo wethu, ekumbizeni kwethu konke?
8 Luluphi na uhlanga olukhulu olunemimiselo namasiko anobulungisa, njengalo myalelo wonke ndiwubekayo phambi kwenu namhla?
9 Kodwa zigcine, uwugcine umphefumlo wakho kunene, hleze uzilibale izinto azibonileyo amehlo akho; hleze zimke entliziyweni yakho yonke imihla yokuphila kwakho. Uze uzazise oonyana bakho, noonyana boonyana bakho;
10 ngokukodwa umhla owema ngawo phambi koYehova uThixo wakho eHorebhe, akuthi uYehova kum, babizele ndawonye kum abantu, ndibavise amazwi am, ukuze bafunde ukundoyika yonke imihla abaphila ngayo emhlabeni, bafundise noonyana babo.
11 Nasondela, nema phantsi kwentaba, intaba isitsha ngumlilo wada wesa esazulwini sezulu, ibubumnyama bamafu nesithokothoko.
12 Wathetha uYehova kuni ephakathi komlilo; nasiva isandisa mazwi, anabona mbonakalo, yaba sisandi sodwa.
13 Wanixelela umnqophiso wakhe, awaniwisela umthetho ngawo ukuba niwenze, amazwi alishumi; wawabhala emacwecweni amabini amatye.
14 Wandiwisela umthetho uYehova ngelo xesha, ukuba ndinifundise imimiselo namasiko, ukuba niwenze elizweni eniwelela kulo ukuba nilime.
15 Zigcineni kunene ngenxa yemiphefumlo yenu, ngokuba anibonanga mbonakalo yanto, mini wathetha uYehova kuni eHorebhe phakathi komlilo;
16 hleze nizonakalise, nizenzele umfanekiso oqingqiweyo, imbonakalo yento efana nokuba yiyiphi: into emilise okwendoda nokwenkazana,
17 into emilise okwento yonke ezitho zine esemhlabeni, into emilise okwentaka yonke enamaphiko, ephaphazela esibhakabhakeni,
18 into emilise okwesinambuzane sonke esisemhlabeni, into emilise okweentlanzi zonke ezisemanzini phantsi komhlaba;
19 hleze uwaphakamisele ezulwini amehlo akho, ubone ilanga nenyanga neenkwenkwezi, wonke umkhosi wasezulwini, uwexulwe, uzinqule, uzikhonze, ezo uYehova uThixo wakho azabele izizwe zonke phantsi kwezulu lonke.
20 Ke nina unithabathile uYehova, wanikhupha kwiziko lesinyithi eYiputa, ukuba nibe ngabantu abalilifa kuye, njengoko ninjalo namhla.
21 Phezu koko uYehova wandifuthela ngenxa yamazwi enu, wafunga ukuba andiyi kuyiwela iYordan, andiyi kungena ezweni elihle akunikayo uYehova uThixo wakho, ukuba libe lilifa;
22 kuba ndiya kufela kweli lizwe, andiyiweli iYordan. Ke nina niya kuwela, nilime elo lizwe lihle.
23 Zigcineni, hleze niwulibale umnqophiso kaYehova uThixo wenu, awawenzayo nani, nizenzele umfanekiso oqingqiweyo, imbonakalo yezinto zonke awakuwisela umthetho ngazo uYehova uThixo wakho.
24 Ngokuba uYehova uThixo wakho ungumlilo odlayo, unguThixo onekhwele.
25 Xa uthe wazala abantwana nabantwana babantwana, kwada kwaba kudala nihleli kwelo zwe, nazonakalisa, nenza umfanekiso oqingqiweyo, imbonakalo yento nokuba yiyiphi, nenza okubi emehlweni kaYehova uThixo wenu, namqumbisa:
26 ndingqinisisa amazulu nehlabathi namhla ngani, ukuba nodaka mpela kamsinya, ningabikho kwelo zwe, niwela iYordan nisiya kulo ukuba nilime; anisayi kuyolula imihla yenu kulo, notshabalala kube kanye.
27 Woniphangalalisa uYehova phakathi kwezizwe, nisale nibantu bambalwa ezintlangeni, apho uYehova aya kuni qhubela khona;
28 nikhonze khona oothixo abangumsebenzi wezandla zomntu, imithi namatye, abangaboniyo, abangeviyo, abangadliyo, abangajojiyo;
29 eningathi nimfune khona uYehova uThixo wenu, nimfumane, xa nithe naquqela kuye ngentliziyo yenu yonke, nangomphefumlo wenu wonke.
30 Ekubandezelekeni kwenu, zakunifumana zonke ezi zinto, ekupheleleni kwemihla, nobuyela kuYehova uThixo wenu, niliphulaphule ilizwi lakhe.
31 Ngokuba nguThixo onemfesane uYehova uThixo wakho; akayi kukuyekela, akayi kukonakalisa, akayi kuwulibala umnqophiso wooyihlo awabafungelayo.
32 Kuba khawubuze emihleni yamandulo, eyayikho ngaphambi kwakho, kususela kumhla uThixo awadala ngawo umntu ehlabathini, uthabathele esiphelweni sezulu, ude use esiphelweni sezulu, ukuba khe kwakho na into enjengale nto ukuba nkulu, ukuba khe kwaviwa into enjengale na?
33 Bakha baliva na abantu izwi loThixo ethetha phakathi komlilo, njengoko walivayo wena, baphila noko?

26 Ndathandaza ke kuYehova, ndathi, Nkosi yam, Yehova, musa ukubatshabalalisa abantu bakho, ilifa lakho, obakhululeyo ngobukhulu bakho, obakhuphileyo eYiputa ngesandla esithe nkqi.

1 Ngelo xesha wathi uYehova kum, Ziqingqele amacwecwe amatye abe mabini, njengawokuqala, unyuke uze kum entabeni, uzenzele ityeya yomthi;
2 ndiwabhale emacwecweni lawo amazwi abekwawokuqala amacwecwe, lawo wawaqhekezayo; uwabeke etyeyeni.
3 Ndenza ke ityeya ngomngampunzi, ndaqingqa amacwecwe amatye amabini, njengawokuqala; ndenyuka ndaya entabeni, ndinawo amacwecwe amabini esandleni sam.
4 Wawabhala ke emacwecweni ngokombhalo wokuqala amazwi alishumi, abewathethile uYehova kuni entabeni, phakathi komlilo, ngomhla wesikhungu; uYehova wandinika wona.
5 Ndajika ke, ndehla entabeni, ndawabeka amacwecwe etyeyeni endayenzayo. Akhona, njengoko uYehova wandiwisela umthetho ngako.
6 Banduluka oonyana bakaSirayeli eBheroti-bhene-yahakan, baya eMosera. Wafa apho uAron, wangcwatyelwa khona; uElazare unyana wakhe waba ngumbingeleli esikhundleni sakhe.
7 Banduluka khona, baya eGudegoda; banduluka eGudegoda, baya eYotebhata, ilizwe elinemilanjana yamanzi.
8 Ngelo xesha uYehova wasahlula isizwe sakwaLevi, ukuba sithwale ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova, nokuba sime phambi koYehova silungiselele, sisikelele egameni lakhe unanamhla.
9 Ngenxa yoko uLevi akanasabelo nalifa ndawonye nabazalwana bakhe; nguYehova ilifa lakhe, njengoko wathethayo uYehova uThixo wakho kuye.
10 Ndema ke mna entabeni, njengemihla yokuqala, iimini ezimashumi mane nobusuku obumashumi mane; wandiva uYehova nangeso sihlandlo; uYehova akathanda ukukonakalisa.
11 Wathi uYehova kum, Suka ume, uhambe phambi kwabantu, bangene balime ilizwe elo, ndafungayo kooyise ukuba ndobanika.
12 Kaloku ke, Sirayeli, uYehova uThixo wakho ubiza ntoni na kuwe, kungekuko ukumoyika uYehova uThixo wakho, uhambe ngeendlela zakhe zonke, umthande, umkhonze uYehova uThixo wakho ngentliziyo yakho yonke, nangomphefumlo wakho wonke;

14 Yabona lelikaYehova uThixo wakho izulu, nezulu lamazulu, nehlabathi, neento zonke ezikhona.
15 UYehova wathana nca nooyihlo bodwa, ukuba abathande; wanyula imbewu yabo emva kwabo, nina ke, ngaphezu kwezizwe zonke, njengoko kunjalo namhla.
16 Yalusani ke inyama yentliziyo yenu, ningabi saba ngabantamo ilukhuni.
17 Kuba uYehova uThixo wenu nguThixo woothixo yena, nguNkosi kankosi, nguThixo omkhulu, oligorha, owoyikekayo, ongakhethi buso, ongamkeli sicengo;
18 ogwebela inkedama nomhlolokazi, othanda owasemzini, amnike ukudla, amnike nengubo.
19 Mthandeni owasemzini; kuba nibe ningabasemzini ezweni laseYiputa.
20 Uze umoyike uYehova uThixo wakho, umkhonze, unamathele kuye, ufunge igama lakhe.
21 Yindumiso yakho, nguThixo wakho, okwenzele ezi zinto zinkulu zoyikekayo, azibonileyo amehlo akho.
22 Behla beyimiphefumlo emashumi asixhenxe ooyihlo ukuya eYiputa; ke ngoku uYehova, uThixo wakho, unenze nanjengeenkwenkwezi zezulu, ukuba baninzi kwenu.

15 ndizinike utyani iinkomo zakho, emadlelweni akho, udle uhluthe.
16 Zigcineni, hleze ikhohliseke intliziyo yenu, nityeke, nikhonze thixo bambi, nibanqule,

18 La mazwi am nize niwabekele intliziyo yenu nomphefumlo wenu niwabophe esandleni senu, abe ngumqondiso, abe zizikhumbuzo phakathi kwamehlo enu;
19 niwafundise oonyana benu, uthethe ngawo ekuhlaleni kwakho endlwini yakho, nasekuhambeni kwakho ngendlela, nasekulaleni kwakho, nasekuvukeni kwakho;
20 uwabhale emigubasini yendlu yakho, nasemasangweni akho:
21 ukuze yande imihla yenu, nemihla yoonyana benu, emhlabeni lowo abewufungele ooyihlo uYehova, ukuba wobanika njengemihla yamazulu phezu kwehlabathi.
22 Kuba, ukuba nithe nawugcina ngenyameko lo mthetho wonke ndiniwiselayo ukuba niwenze, nimthande uYehova uThixo wenu, nihambe ngeendlela zakhe zonke, ninamathele kuye;

31 Uze ungenjenjalo kuYehova uThixo wakho; kuba yonke into elisikizi kuYehova, ayithiyileyo, ziyenzile koothixo bazo; ngokuba kwanoonyana bazo neentombi zazo zizitshise emlilweni koothixo bazo.

18 Xa indoda ithe yanonyana oyinjubaqa, oneenkani, ongaliphulaphuliyo ilizwi likayise nelizwi lonina, bambetha, akabaphulaphula noko:

21 Omgibisela ngamatye onke amadoda omzi wakowabo, afe; ubutshayeleke ububi, bungabikho phakathi kwakho, eve onke amaSirayeli, oyike

7 Womndulula unina lowo, uzithabathele amathole lawo, ukuze kulunge kuwe, uyolule imihla yakho.
8 Xa uthe wakha indlu entsha, wolwenzela ungqameko uphahla lwakho, ukuze ungazisi magazi endlwini yakho, xa athe wawa owayo kuyo.
9 Uze ungasihlwayeli isidiliya sakho iintlobo ezimbini zeembewu; hleze inzala yembewu oyihlwayeleyo, kunye nongeniselo lwesidiliya eso, lulunge kwindawo engcwele.

13 Xa indoda ithe yazeka umfazi, yamngena, yaza yamthiya,

15 uyise wentombi nonina bozithabatha iimpawu zobuntombi bentombi leyo, baphume nazo bazise kumadoda amakhulu omzi esangweni.
16 Wothi uyise wentombi kumadoda amakhulu, Intombi yam ndiyinikelo mfo ukuba ibe ngumkakhe, wayithiya;
17 yabonani, uthethe iintlondi ezibangela intetho, esithi, Andizifumananga iimpawu zobuntombi entombini yakho; ke nanzi iimpawu zobuntombi bentombi yam. Boyaneka ke ingubo enazo phambi kwamadoda amakhulu omzi.
18 Amadoda amakhulu aloo mzi omthabatha loo mfo, ambethe,
19 amhlahlise ikhulu leeshekele zesilivere, anike uyise wentombi; ngokuba wayivelisela igama elibi intombi yakwaSirayeli; ibe ngumkakhe ke. Akayi kuba nakuyala yonke imihla yakhe.
20 Ke ukuba eli lizwi lithe layinyaniso, azafumaneka iimpawu zobuntombi baloo ntombi,
21 oyikhupha loo ntombi, ayimise ngasemnyango wendlu kayise, ayigibisele ngamatye amadoda omzi wakowayo, ife; ngokuba yenze ubudenge kwaSirayeli, yahenyuza endlwini kayise; ubutshayele ke ububi, bungabikho phakathi kwenu.
22 Xa indoda ithe yafunyanwa imlele umkamntu, bofa bobabini, loo ndoda ilele naloo mfazi, nomfazi lowo; ubutshayele ke ububi, bungabikho kwaSirayeli.
23 Xa kuthe kwakho inkazana eyintombi eganelwe indoda, wayifumana umfo phakathi komzi, wayilala:
24 nobakhupha bobabini nibamise ngasesangweni laloo mzi, nibaxulube ngamatye, bafe; inkazana leyo, ngenxa yokuba ingakhalanga iphakathi komzi; umfo lowo, ngenxa yokuba emonile umfazi wommelwane wakhe; ubutshayele ke ububi, bungabikho phakathi kwakho.
25 Ukuba umfo uthe wayifumana endle intombi eseliganiwe, wayibamba loo mfo, wayilala, wofa yedwa loo mfo uyileleyo.
26 Uze ungayenzi into intombi leyo; akukho sono silingenwe kukufa entombini; ngokuba njengoko indoda ithi imvunukele ummelwane wayo, imbulale afe, injalo le ndawo.
27 Ngokuba uyifumene endle, yakhala intombi eganiweyo, akwabakho uyisindisayo.
28 Xa umfo athe wayifumana intombi eyintombi engaganiweyo, wayibamba, wayilala; kwafumaneka ukuba kunjalo:
29 loo mfo uyileleyo womnika uyise wentombi amashumi omahlanu eeshekele zesilivere, ibe ngumkakhe, ngenxa yokuba eyonile. Akanakuyala yonke imihla yakhe.
30 Indoda mayingamzeki umkayise, ingalityhili isondo lengubo kayise.

14 akwatyeka emazwini onke endiniwisela umthetho ngawo namhla, uye ekunene nasekhohlo, ukulandela thixo bambi, ubakhonze.
15 Ke Kothi, ukuba uyigcine uyenze imithetho yakhe nemimiselo yakhe endikuwiselayo namhla, zize phezu kwakho ezi ziqalekiso zonke zikufumane:
16 Woqalekiswa phakathi komzi, uqalekiswe emaphandleni;

18 siqalekiswe isiqhamo sesizalo sakho, nesiqhamo somhlaba wakho, nenkonyana yenkomo yakho, namatakane empahla yakho emfutshane.
19 Woqalekiswa ekungeneni kwakho, uqalekiswe ekuphumeni kwakho.
20 UYehova wokuthumela isiqalekiso, nokudungwadungwa, nokukhalinyelwa ezintweni zonke osa isandla sakho kuzo, ude utshabalale, ude ubhubhekuphele, ngenxa yobubi beentlondi zakho zokuba undishiyile.
21 UYehova woyinamathelisa kuwe indyikitya yokufa, ade akuphelise, ungabikho phezu komhlaba lowo uya kuwo ukuba uwume.
22 UYehova wokubetha ngesifo sephepha, nangecesina, nangokurhala, nangokuvutha komzimba, nangekrele, nangembabala, nangexoshomba, zikusukele ezo nto ude ubhubhe.

24 UYehova woyenza imvula yelizwe lakho ibe luthuthu nothuli, ihle ezulwini phezu kwakho ude utshabalale.
25 UYehova wokunikela ubethwe ziintshaba zakho, uphume ngandlela-nye ukuya kuzo, uzibaleke ngeendlela ezisixhenxe, ube yinto yokufeketha ezikumkanini zonke zehlabathi;
26 isidumbu sakho sibe kukudla kweentaka zonke zezulu, nokwamarhamncwa elizwe. kungabikho bani uphekuzayo.
27 UYehova wokubetha ngethumba laseYiputa, nangezilonda, nangokhwekhwe, nangenjinana, ongayi kuba nako ukuphiliswa kuzo.
28 UYehova wokubetha ngokubhuda nangobumfama, nangokuphambana ingqondo,
29 uphuthaphuthe emini emaqanda, njengemfama iphuthaphutha esithokothokweni; ungabi nampumelelo ezindleleni zakho, ucudiswe kodwa, uphangwe yonke imihla, kungabikho bani ukusindisayo.
30 Woziganela umfazi, alalwe ndoda yimbi; woyakha indlu ungayihlali; wotyala isidiliya ungasidli.
31 Yoxhelwa inkomo yakho ukhangele, ungayidli; kohluthwa iesile lakho ebusweni bakho, lingabuyeli kuwe; yonikwa iintshaba zakho impahla yakho emfutshane, ungabi nabani uyihlangulayo.
32 Bonikwa bantu bambi oonyana bakho neentombi zakho, akhangele amehlo akho, aphelele kubo imini yonke, singabi namandla isandla sakho.
33 Isiqhamo somhlaba wakho, nokuxelenga kwakho konke, kodliwa ngabantu ongabaziyo, ucudiswe, uvikivwe kuphela yonke imihla;
34 ubhudiswe kukubona akubonayo amehlo akho.
35 UYehova wokubetha emadolweni nasemilenzeni ngamathumba amabi, ungabi nakuphiliswa kuwo, athabathele entendeni yonyawo lwakho ase elukakayini.
36 UYehova wokusa wena, nokumkani wakho othe wammisa phezu kwakho, eluhlangeni eningalwaziyo wena nooyihlo, ukhonze khona apho thixo bambi, imithi namatye;
37 ube ngummangaliso, nondaba-mlonyeni, nento yentsini, phakathi kwezizwe zonke athe uYehova wakuqhubela kuzo.
38 Wophuma nembewu eninzi uye entsimini, uvune into encinane; ngokuba iya kunqunquthwa ziinkumbi.
39 Wotyala izidiliya, uzisebenze, ungaseli wayini noko, ungavuni zidiliya; ngokuba ziya kudliwa ngukruxeshe.
40 Woba neminquma emideni yakho yonke, ungazithambisi ngeoli noko; ngokuba iminquma yakho iya kunyothulwa.
41 Wozala oonyana neentombi, ungabi nabo noko; ngokuba baya kuthinjwa.
42 Yonke imithi yakho, nesiqhamo somhlaba wakho, sohluthwa ziinkumbi.
43 Owasemzini ophakathi kwakho wokunyuka, aye enyuka ngokunyuka; wena uye usihla ngokuhla.
44 Wokuboleka yena, ungamboleki wena; woba yintloko yena, ube ngumsila wena.
45 Zoza ke phezu kwakho ezo ziqalekiso zonke, zikusukele, zikufumane ude utshabalale; ngokuba ungaliphulaphulanga ilizwi likaYehova uThixo wakho, ukuba uyigcine imithetho yakhe nemimiselo yakhe akuwiseleyo;
46 zibe ngumqondiso nezimanga kuwe, nakwimbewu yakho kude kuse ephakadeni;
47 ngenxa yokuba ungamkhonzanga uYehova uThixo wakho ngokuvuya, nangokuchwayitha kwentliziyo, ngenxa yobuninzi bezinto zonke.
48 Wokhonza iintshaba zakho, ezo aya kuzithumela kuwe uYehova, ulambile, unxaniwe, uhamba ze, uswele zonke izinto, abeke idyokhwe yesinyithi entanyeni yakho, ade akutshabalalise.
49 UYehova wokuzisela uhlanga oluvela kude, esiphelweni sehlabathi, olutshwebeleza njengokhozi; uhlanga olulwimi ungayi kuluva;
50 uhlanga olubuso bungwanyalala, olungakhethi buso bandoda inkulu, olungabi nakubabala namfama.
51 Lodla isiqhamo senkomo yakho, nesiqhamo somhlaba wakho, ude utshabalale; lungakushiyeli ngqolowa, nawayini intsha, naoli, nankonyana yankomo yakho, namatakane empahla yakho emfutshane, lude lukuchithe.
52 Lokungqinga emasangweni akho onke, zide ziwe iindonga zakho eziphakamileyo, ezinqabileyo, okholose ngazo, ezweni lakho lonke; lukungqinge ke emasangweni akho onke, ezweni lakho lonke, akunikileyo uYehova uThixo wakho;
53 udle isiqhamo sesizalo sakho, inyama yoonyana bakho neentombi zakho akunikileyo uYehova uThixo wakho, ekungqingweni, nasekuxinweni, olokuxina ngako utshaba lwakho.
54 Indoda esisifebe, ebixhamla ubuncwane kunene phakathi kwakho, yomkhangela ngeliso elibi umzalwana wayo, nomfazi wesifuba sayo, namasalela abantwana bayo abasaseleyo;
55 ngokokuze inganiki namnye kubo into yenyama yabantwana bayo eyidlayo, ngenxa yokuba ingashiyelwanga nto ekungqingweni nasekuxinweni, olokuxina ngako utshaba lwakho emasangweni akho onke.
56 Intokazi eling’awukazi, exhamle ubuncwane phakathi kwakho, ebingalingi ukubeka intende yonyawo lwayo emhlabeni, ngenxa yokuxhamla ubuncwane, nangenxa yokuba iling’awukazi, yoyikhangela ngeliso elibi indoda yesifuba sayo,
57 nonyana wayo, nentombi yayo, ngenxa yomkhaya wayo ophuma phakathi kweenyawo zayo, nangenxa yabantwana bayo ethe yabazala; kuba yobadla ngasese ekuswelekeni kweento zonke, ekungqingweni nasekuxinweni olokuxina ngako utshaba lwakho emasangweni akho.
58 Ukuba uthe akwagcina ukuwenza onke amazwi alo myalelo, abhaliweyo kule ncwadi, ukuba uloyike eli gama lizukileyo, loyikekayo, uYehova uThixo wakho:
59 uYehova wozenza zibaluleke izibetho zakho, nezibetho zembewu yakho, zibe zizibetho ezikhulu ezihlala zihleli, nezifo ezibi ezihlala zihleli;
60 akubuyisele ke bonke ubulwelwe baseYiputa owanxunguphala bubo, buthi nama kuwe.
61 Nazo zonke izifo nezibetho zonke ezingabhaliweyo encwadini yalo myalelo, wozinyusa uYehova phezu kwakho ude utshabalale;
62 nisale nibantu bambalwa, esikhundleni sokuba naningangeenkwenkwezi zezulu ukuba baninzi; ngokuba ungaliphulaphulanga izwi likaYehova uThixo wakho.
63 Kothi, njengokuba uYehova ebenemihlali ngani, ukuba anenzele okulungileyo, anandise: enjenjalo uYehova ukuba nemihlali ngani, ukuba anidakise, anitshabalalise; ninyothulwe emhlabeni lowo ungena kuwo, usiya kuwuma;
64 aniphangalalise uYehova phakathi kwezizwe zonke, ethabathela esiphelweni sehlabathi, ase esiphelweni sehlabathi; ukhonze thixo bambi khona, ongabazanga wena nooyihlo, imithi namatye.
65 Phakathi kwezo ntlanga akusayi kunyhamnyheka, ayisayi kuba nakuphumla intende yonyawo lwakho; uYehova wokunika apho ukugungqa kwentliziyo, nokuphela kwamehlo, nokuthiswa komphefumlo.
66 Ubomi bakho bojinga ngomsonto phambi kwakho, unkwantye ubusuku nemini, ungakholwa bubomi bakho;
67 kusasa wothi, Akwaba bekungokuhlwa! ngokuhlwa wothi, Akwaba bekukusasa! ngenxa yokunkwantya kwentliziyo yakho oya kunkwantya ngako, nangenxa yokubona aya kukubona amehlo akho.
68 UYehova wokubuyisela eYiputa ngeenqanawa, ngendlela endathi kuwe, Uze ungabi saphinda uyibone; kuthengiswe ngani khona ezintshabeni zenu, ukuba nibe ngamakhoboka namakhobokazana, kungabikho bani unithengayo.

1 Ngawo la amazwi omnqophiso, awamwisela uMoses umthetho ngawo uYehova, ukuba awenze noonyana bakaSirayeli ezweni lakwaMowabhi, ngaphandle komnqophiso awawenzayo nabo eHorebhe.
2 UMoses wawabiza amaSirayeli onke, wathi kuwo, Nikubonile konke akwenzileyo uYehova emehlweni enu ezweni laseYiputa, kuFaro, nakubakhonzi bakhe bonke, nakwilizwe lakhe lonke;
3 izilingo ezikhulu azibonileyo amehlo akho, eziyimiqondiso nezimanga ezikhulu.
4 Ke akaninikanga uYehova intliziyo yokwazi, namehlo okubona, neendlebe zokuva, unanamhla.
5 Ndinihambisile iminyaka engamashumi amane entlango. Iingubo zenu azonakalanga bubudala, zinishiye; neembadada zakho azonakalanga ziphele ezinyaweni zakho;
6 anidlanga sonka, aniselanga wayini nasiselo sinxilisayo, ukuze nazi ukuba ndinguYehova uThixo wenu.
7 Nafika kule ndawo, waphuma uSihon ukumkani waseHeshbhon, no-Ogi ukumkani waseBhashan, basihlangabeza ngemfazwe, sababulala;
8 salithabatha ilizwe labo salinika amaRubhen, namaGadi, nesiqingatha sesizwe sakwaManase, ukuba libe lilifa.
9 Wagcineni ke amazwi alo mnqophiso, niwenze, ukuze nikwenze ngengqiqo konke eniya kukwenza.
10 Nimi namhla nonke niphela phambi koYehova uThixo wenu; iintloko zenu, nezizwe zenu, namadoda amakhulu akowenu, nababhali benu, onke amadoda akwaSirayeli,
11 nabantwana benu, nabafazi benu, nomphambukeli ophakathi komzi wakho, kuthabathela kogawula iinkuni zakho, kuse kokha amanzi akho;
12 ukuba ungene emnqophisweni kaYehova uThixo wakho, asesifungweni sakhe, asenzayo uYehova uThixo wakho nawe namhla;
13 ukuze animise namhla nibe ngabantu kuye, yena abe nguThixo kuni, njengoko wakuthethayo kuni, njengoko wakufungayo kooyihlo, ooAbraham noIsake noYakobi.
14 Andiwenzi nani nedwa lo mnqophiso nesi sifungo;
15 ndiwenza nomiyo apha nathi namhla phambi koYehova uThixo wethu, kwanongekhoyo apha nathi namhla.
16 Ngokuba nina niyakwazi ukuhlala kwethu ezweni laseYiputa, nokucanda kwethu phakathi kweentlanga enacanda kuzo;
17 nazibona izinto zazo ezinezothe, nezigodo ezizizithixo zazo, imithi namatye, isilivere negolide, ezinazo:
18 hleze kubekho kuni ndoda, namfazi, namzalwane, nasizwe, sintliziyo ijikayo namhla, imke kuYehova uThixo wethu, iye kukhonza oothixo bezo ntlanga; hleze kubekho kuni ingcambu ezele ubuhlungu nomhlonyane;
19 kuthi, ekuweveni kwakhe amazwi esi sishwabulo, azisikelele entliziyweni yakhe, esithi, Ndoba noxolo; ngokuba ndihamba ebungqoleni bentliziyo yam, ukuze kuphetshethwe osele wahlutha kwanonxaniweyo.
20 UYehova akasayi kuvuma ukumxolela; wosuka uqhume umsindo kaYehova nekhwele lakhe kuloo ndoda, silalephezu kwayo sonke isishwabulo esibhaliweyo kule ncwadi, alicime uYehova igama layo phantsi kwezulu.
21 Woyahlulela uYehova okubi ezizweni zonke zamaSirayeli, ngokwezishwabulo zonke zomnqophiso obhaliweyo encwadini yalo myalelo.
22 Sothi isizukulwana esisemva kwenu, oonyana benu abaya kuvela emva kwenu nowolunye uhlanga ovela ezweni elikude, bazibone izibetho zelolizwe, nezifo zalo uYehova azihlisileyo kulo:
23 isulfure netyuwa, litshile lonke ilizwe lakhona, lingahlwayelwa, lingahlumi nto, lingaphumi tyani; linjengokubhukuqwa kweSodom neGomora, iAdama neTsebhoyim, awazibhukuqayo uYehova ngomsindo wakhe nangobushushu bakhe.
24 Zothi ke zonke iintlanga, Kungenxa yantoni na, ukuba uYehova enjenje kweli lizwe? Kuyini na ukuvutha kwalo msindo mkhulu kangaka?
25 Kuthiwe, Kungokuba bewushiyile umnqophiso kaYehova uThixo wooyise, awawenza nabo ekubakhupheni kwakhe ezweni laseYiputa.
26 Baya bakhonza thixo bambi, babanqula, oothixo abangabaziyo, abengababelanga yena.
27 Wavutha ke umsindo kaYehova kwelo zwe, ukuba kuziswe phezu kwalo zonke iziqalekiso ezibhaliweyo kule ncwadi;
28 uYehova wabanyothula emhlabeni wabo ngomsindo, nangobushushu, nangoburhalarhume obukhulu, wabaphosa zweni limbi, njengoko kunjalo namhla.
29 Izinto ezisitheleyo zezikaYehova uThixo wethu; izinto ezityhilekileyo zezethu, nezoonyana bethu kude kuse ephakadeni, ukuze siwenze onke amazwi alo myalelo.

4 Ukuba uthe wagxothelwa esiphelweni sezulu, wokubutha nakhona apho uYehova uThixo wakho; wokuphuthuma nakhona apho.
5 Wokuzisa uYehova uThixo wakho kulo ilizwe ababelihluthile ooyihlo, ulime, akwenzele okulungileyo, akwandise ngaphezu kooyihlo.

11 Ngokuba lo mthetho ndikuwiselayo namhla awunto ikunqabeleyo, awukude nokuba kude.
12 Awusezulwini, ukuba uthi, Ngubani na oya kusinyukela ezulwini, asithabathele siwuve, siwenze?
13 Awuphesheya kolwandle, ukuba uthi, Ngubani na oya kusiwelela ulwandle, asithabathele, siwuve, siwenze?
14 Ngokuba ilizwi eli lisondele kunene kuwe, emlonyeni wakho nasentliziyweni yakho, ukuba ulenze.
15 Khangela, ndibeke phambi kwakho namhla ubomi nokulunga, ukufa nobubi;

18 ndiyanixelela namhla, ukuba nobhubha kanye. Aniyi kolulelwa mini zenu kuwo umhlaba, eniwela iYordan nisiya kuwuma.
19 Ndingqinisisa amazulu nehlabathi namhla ngani; ndibeke phambi kwenu ubomi nokufa, intsikelelo nesiqalekiso. Nyula ke ubomi, ukuze uphile, wena nembewu yakho;

1 Waya uMoses, wawathetha la mazwi kumaSirayeli onke,
2 wathi kuwo, Ndiminyaka ilikhulu elinamanci mabini namhla ndizelwe. Andisenako ukuphuma nokungena; noYehova uthe kum, Akusayi kuyiwela le Yordan.
3 NguYehova uThixo wakho owela phambi kwakho; wozitshabalalisa ezo ntlanga phambi kwakho, uzithimbe. NguYoshuwa owela phambi kwakho, njengoko wathethayo uYehova.
4 Uya kwenza uYehova kuzo njengoko wenzayo kuSihon nakuOgi, ookumkani bama-Amori, nakwilizwe labo, awabatshabalalisayo;
5 azinikele kuni uYehova; nenze kuzo ngokomthetho wonke endiniwiseleyo.
6 Yomelelani nikhaliphe: musani ukoyika, musani ukungcangcazela ebusweni bazo. Ngokuba nguYehova uThixo wakho ohamba nawe; akayi kukuyekela, akayi kukushiya.
7 UMoses wambiza ke uYoshuwa, wathi kuye emehlweni amaSirayeli onke, Yomelela ukhaliphe; kuba wena uya kungena naba bantu kwelo zwe wafungayo kooyise uYehova ukuba wobanika; wena uya kubadlisa ilifa.
8 NguYehova ohamba phambi kwakho; yena uya kuba nawe; akayi kukuyekela, akayi kukushiya. Uze ungoyiki, ungaqhiphuki mbilini.
9 Wawubhala uMoses lo myalelo, wawunika ababingeleli, oonyana bakaLevi, ababethwala ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova, namadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli onke.
10 UMoses wabawisela umthetho, esithi, Ekupheleni kweminyaka esixhenxe, ngexesha elimisiweyo lomnyaka woyekelelo, emthendelekweni weminquba,
11 ekuzeni kubonakala kwamaSirayeli onke phambi koYehova uThixo wakho, kuloo ndawo aya kuyinyula, wowulesa lo myalelo phambi kwamaSirayeli onke ezindlebeni zawo.
12 Bobizelwa ndawonye abantu, amadoda, nabafazi, nabantwana, nomphambukeli wakho osemasangweni akho, ukuze beve, nokuze bafunde, bamoyike uYehova uThixo wenu, bagcine ukuwenza onke amazwi alo myalelo;
13 beve noonyana babo abangaziyo, bafunde ukumoyika uYehova uThixo wenu, yonke imihla enidla ubomi ngayo, kuloo mhlaba eniwela iYordan nisiya kuwuma.
14 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yabona, isondele imihla yakho yokuba ufe. Biza uYoshuwa, niye nime ententeni yokuhlangana, ndimyale. Baya ooMoses noYoshuwa, bema ententeni yokuhlangana.
15 Wabonakala uYehova ententeni emqulwini welifu. Wamana umi umqulu welifu phezu komnyango wentente.
16 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yabona, uya kulala nooyihlo; basuke aba bantu bahenyuze ngokulandela thixo bambi belo zwe bangena kulo phakathi kwalo, bandishiye, bawaphule umnqophiso wam endiwenze nabo;
17 uvuthe umsindo wam kubo ngaloo mini, ndibashiye, ndibusithelise ubuso bam kubo, babe ngabokudliwa kuthi tu, bafunyanwe bububi obuninzi naziimbandezelo; bathi ngaloo mini, Akungenxa yokuba engekho na uThixo wam phakathi kwam, le nto ndifunyenwe bobu bubi?
18 Ke mna ndiya kubusithelisa kuphele ubuso bam ngaloo mini, ngenxa yobubi bonke ababenzileyo; ngokuba bejike baya thixweni bambi.
19 Kaloku ke zibhaleleni le ngoma, niyifundise oonyana bakaSirayeli, niyibeke emlonyeni wabo, ukuze le ngoma ibe lingqina lam koonyana bakaSirayeli.
20 Kuba ndiya kubangenisa kuwo umhlaba endafunga kooyise ngawo, obaleka amasi nobusi, badle bahluthe, batyebe; bajike baye thixweni bambi, babakhonze, bandigibe, bawaphule umnqophiso wam.
21 Kothi, xa bathe bafunyanwa bububi obuninzi naziimbandezelo, isuke le ngoma iphendule phambi kwabo, ibe lingqina: kuba ayisayi kulityalwa imke emlonyeni wembewu yabo; kuba ndiyakwazi ukucamanga kwabo abakwenzayo namhla, ndingekabangenisi nje’kwelo zwe ndifunge ngalo.
22 Wayibhala uMoses loo ngoma ngaloo mini, wayifundisa oonyana bakaSirayeli.
23 Wammisela uYoshuwa unyana kaNun umthetho; wathi, Yomelela, ukhaliphe, kuba uya kubangenisa wena oonyana bakaSirayeli kwelo zwe ndabafungela lona. Ndiya kuba nawe mna.
24 Kwathi, akugqiba uMoses ukuwabhala amazwi alo myalelo encwadini ada agqitywa,
25 uMoses wabawisela umthetho abaLevi, ababethwala ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova, esithi,
26 Yithabatheni incwadi yalo myalelo, niyibeke ecaleni letyeya yomnqophiso kaYehova uThixo wenu, ibe lingqina khona kuni.
27 Ngokuba ndiyazazi iinkani zakho, nentamo yakho elukhuni. Yabonani, ndisadla ubomi nje, ndisenani, namana niphikisana noYehova; kobeka phi na emva kokufa kwam?
28 Bizelani ndawonye onke amadoda amakhulu ezizwe zenu, nababhali benu, beze kum, ndiwathethe la mazwi ezindlebeni zabo, ndingqinisise amazulu nehlabathi ngabo.
29 Kuba ndiyazi ukuba, emva kokufa kwam, niya kuzonakalisa kanye, nityeke endleleni endiniwisele umthetho ngayo, nihlelwe bububi ekupheleni kwemihla; ngokuba niya kwenza ububi phambi koYehova, ukuba nimqumbise ngomsebenzi wezandla zenu.
30 Wawathetha ke uMoses ezindlebeni zebandla lonke lakwaSirayeli amazwi ale ngoma, ada agqitywa:

3 Ngokuba ndiya kuvakalisa igama likaYehova: Mnikeni ubukhulu uThixo wethu!
4 NguLiwa; ugqibele umsebenzi wakhe, Ngokuba zonke iindlela zakhe zisesikweni; NguThixo wentembeko, tu ubugqwetha; Lilungisa, uthe tye yena.

7 Khumbula iimini zasephakadeni, Qonda iminyaka yezizukulwana ngezizukulwana. Buza kooyihlo, bakubalisele, Kumadoda amakhulu akowenu, akuxelele.
8 Ekuzabeleni kOsenyangweni iintlanga ilifa, Ekubahlulahluleni kwakhe oonyana baka-Adam, Wayimisa imida yezizwe Ngokwenani loonyana bakaSirayeli.
9 Kuba isabelo sikaYehova ngabantu bakhe, UYakobi licandelo lelifa lakhe.
10 Wamfumana ezweni eliyintlango, Enyanyeni, enkangala ebhombolozayo; Wamwola, wamondla, Wamlondoloza njengokhozo lweliso lakhe.
11 Njengokhozi lususela, Lundanda phezu kwamathole alo, Wawolula amaphiko akhe, wamthabatha, Wamthwala ngamaphiko akhe.
12 Wamkhokela uYehova yedwa, Engenathixo wolunye uhlanga naye.
13 Wamkhwelisa emimangweni yehlabathi; Wadla ke iziveliso zamasimi; Wammunyisa ubusi engxondorheni, Neoli eweni leqhwitha;
14 Amasi eenkomo, nobisi lwempahla emfutshane, Kunye namanqatha eemvana; Neenkunzi zezimvu, amatakane aseBhashan, neebhokhwe, Kunye namanqatha ezintso zengqolowa; Negazi lediliya walisela, liyiwayini enegwebu.
15 Watyeba ke uYeshurun, wakhaba; Watyeba wena, wanesibili, wathi fithi; Wamlahla uThixo owamenzayo, Walenza isidenge iLiwa lokusindiswa kwakhe.
16 Bamkhweletisa ngoothixo basemzini, Bamqumbisa ngamasikizi.
17 Babingelela kwiidemon ezingeThixo, Koothixo abangabaziyo, Kwabatsha abasandula ukufika, Ababengabahlonele ooyihlo.
18 ILiwa elakuzalayo walihilizela, Wamlibala uThixo owaba nenimba ngawe.
19 Wabona uYehova, wabalahla, Ngokuqunjiswa ngoonyana bakhe neentombi zakhe.
20 Wathi, Ndiya kubusithelisa ubuso bam kubo, Ndibone ukuba koba yintoni na ukuphela kwabo; Ngokuba basisizukulwana sempenduka, Ngoonyana abangenantembeko.
21 Bona bandikhweletisa ngongeThixo, Bandiqumbisa ngamampunge abo. Nam ndiya kubakhweletisa ngabangebantu, Ndibaqumbise ngohlanga olunobudenge.
22 Ngokuba kuphenjwe umlilo emathatheni am; Utsha ude use kwelingaphantsi labafileyo, Ulidle ihlabathi neendyebo zalo, Uvuthise iziseko zeentaba.
23 Ndiya kufumba ububi phezu kwabo, lintolo zam ndiziphelelisele kubo;
24 Omakhanywa kukulamba, omadliwa kukurhala, Nembubhiso ekrakra. Ndiya kubathumela izinyo lamarhamncwa, Nobuhlungu bezinambuzane zothuli.
25 Ngaphandle kophanga ikrele, Ezingontsini kuphange izothuso, Kufane indodana nentombi, Kufane owanyayo nengwevu.
26 Ngendiba ndithi, Ndiya kubaphephetha, Ndisiphelise isikhumbuzo sabo ebantwini;
27 Koko ndinxungupheleyo kukuqunjiswa lutshaba, Hleze ababandezeli babo bangaqondi; Hleze bathi, Kuphakame isandla sethu; Akwenziwe nguYehova oku konke.
28 Ngokuba luhlanga oluphelelwe ngamacebo, Tu ingqondo kubo.
29 Akwaba babelumkile; ngebekuqiqa oku, Basiqonde isiphelo sabo.
30 Yo! Ebengayi kuthi na emnye kubo asukele iwaka, Bebabini bagxothe amawaka alishumi, Ukuba belingathengisanga ngabo iLiwa labo, Wabanikela uYehova?
31 Kuba alinjengeLiwa lethu iliwa lazo, lintshaba zethu zingabagwebi boko.
32 Kuba umdiliya wabo ngowomdiliya waseSodom, Ngowamasimi aseGomora. Iidiliya zabo ziidiliya ezinobuhlungu, Izihloko zazo zinobukrakra.
33 Bubuhlungu benyushu iwayini yabo, Yinyongo enobujorha yamaphimpi.
34 Oku akubekwe kum na, Kwavingcelwa koovimba bam?
35 Yeyam impindezelo nembuyekezo Ngexesha lokutyibilika konyawo lwabo; Ngokuba usondele umhla wokusindeka kwabo, Kuyakhawuleza abakumiselweyo.
36 Ngokuba uya kugweba phakathi kwabantu bakhe uYehova, Azohlwaye ngenxa yabakhonzi bakhe, Xa abonayo ukuba ethile amandla, Uphelile ovalelweyo novulelweyo.
37 Wothi ke, Baphi na kaloku oothixo babo, Iliwa ababezimela ngalo:
38 Ababesidla amanqatha emibingelelo yabo, Ababesela iwayini yeminikelo yabo ethululwayo? Mabasuke banincede, Kubekho isithe phezu kwenu.
39 Bonani ngoku, ukuba mna ndinguye; Tu thixo unam. Ndiyabulala, ndidlise ubomi; Ndiyaphalusa, ndiphilise mna; Tu uhlangulayo esandleni sam.
40 Ngokuba ndisiphakamisela emazulwini isandla sam; Ndithi, Ndihleli nje mna ngonaphakade,
41 Ukuba ndithe ndalilola ikrele lam elingumbane, Sabambelela elugwebeni isandla sam, Ndoyibuyisela impindezelo kubabandezeli bam, Ndibuyekeze kubathiyi bam.
42 Ndozinxilisa iintolo zam ngegazi, Ikrele lam liyidle inyama Ngegazi labahlatyiweyo nabathinjiweyo, Ngentloko enesihlwitha yotshaba.
43 Memelelani, zintlanga, ngenxa yaba ntu bakhe, Ngokuba eliphindezelela igazi laba khonzi bakhe, Abuyisele impindezelo kubabande zeli bakhe, Awucamagushele ke umhlaba wakhe nabantu bakhe.
44 Weza ke uMoses, wawathetha onke amazwi ale ngoma ezindlebeni zabantu, yena noYoshuwa unyana kaNun.
45 Wagqiba uMoses ukuwathetha onke la mazwi kumaSirayeli onke,
46 wathi kuwo, Wabekeleni iintliziyo zenu onke amazwi endiwangqinayo kuni namhla, eniya kuwamisela koonyana benu, ukuba bagcine ukuwenza onke amazwi alo myalelo.
47 Ngokuba asilizwi lilambathayo kuni eli, kuba bubomi benu; ngeli lizwi niya kuyolula imihla kuloo mhlaba niyiwelayo iYordan nisiya kuwuhlutha.
48 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses kwangaloo mini, esithi,
49 Nyuka uye kule ntaba yaseAbharim, entabeni yeNebho, esezweni lakwaMowabhi, elikhangelene neYeriko, ukhangele ilizwe lakwaKanan, endilinika oonyana bakaSirayeli ukuba libe lelabo;
50 ufele entabeni oyinyukayo, uhlanganiselwe kubantu bakowenu, njengokuba wafayo umkhuluwa wakho uAron entabeni yeHore, wahlanganiselwa kubantu bakowabo;
51 ngenxa yokuba namenezayo kum phakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli emanzini aseMeribha yaseKadeshe, entlango yeTsin, ngenxa yokuba ningandingcwalisanga phakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli.
52 Ngokuba wolibona ilizwe liphambili, kodwa ungangeni kulo ilizwe endilinika oonyana bakaSirayeli.




Isahluko 33

1 Yiyo le intsikelelo, awabasikelela ngayo uMoses, indoda yakwaThixo, oonyana bakaSirayeli, phambi kokufa kwakhe, wathi:
2 UYehova wavela eSinayi, Waphuma kwaSehire phezu kwabo; Wabengezela esezintabeni zeParan, Weza ephuma kwiingcwele ezimawaka alishumi, Ekunene kwakhe ikukubinza komlilo kubo.
3 Inene, uyazithanda izizwe. Bonke abangcwele bakhe basesandleni sakho, Bahlala ezinyaweni zakho, Besuke ngamazwi akho.
4 UMoses wasiwisela umyalelo, Ilifa ke elo lebandla lakwaYakobi.
5 Waba ngukumkani kwaYeshurun, Ekuzihlanganiseni iintloko zabantu, Izizwe zakwaSirayeli zindawonye.
6 URubhen makadle ubomi, angafi; Angabi mbalwa amadoda akhe.
7 Le yintsikelelo kaYuda, wathi, Yiva, Yehova, izwi likaYuda, Umngenise kubantu bakowabo; Uyabalwela ngezandla zakhe; Umnceda wena kubabandezeli bakhe.
8 Wathi ngoLevi, IiTumim zakho neeUrim zakho zezomntu wakho wenceba, Owamlingayo eMasa, Wabambana naye emanzini aseMeribha.
9 Lowo uthi kuyise nakunina, Andikuboni; Akatheni nabazalwana bakhe, Akabazi noonyana bakhe; Ngokuba egcine intetho yakho, Wabamba umnqophiso wakho.
10 Baya kumyala uYakobi ngamasiko akho, Bamyale uSirayeli ngomyalelo wakho, Babeke isiqhumiso ezimpumlweni zakho, Namadini apheleleyo esibingelelweni sakho.
11 Sikelela, Yehova, amandla akhe, Ukholeke kuwe umsebenzi wezandla zakhe. Baphaluswe emanqeni abavukelana naye, Nabamthiyileyo bangabi nakuvuka.
12 NgoBhenjamin wathi, Intanda kaYehova iya kuhlala kuye ikholosile; Uyikhusele imini yonke, Ihlala phakathi kwamagxa akhe.
13 NgoYosefu wathi. Malisikelelwe nguYehova ilizwe lakhe Ngezinto ezinconywayo zezulu; Ngombethe nangamanzi enzonzobila elele ezantsi.
14 Nangezinconywayo eziveliswa lilanga, Nangezinconywayo ezihlunyiswa ziinyanga,
15 Nangeencopho zeentaba zamandulo, Nangezinconywayo zeenduli ezingunaphakade,
16 Nangezinconywayo zomhlaba nenzaliseko yawo. Nekholo lowahlala etyholweni Malifike entlokweni kaYosefu, Naselukakayini lwalowo ubalulekileyo kubazalwana bakhe.
17 Eyamazibulo inkunzi yakhe, hayi, ubungangamsha bayo! Ziimpondo zenqu iimpondo zayo; Ngazo ihlaba izizwe, ngaxa-nye iziphelo zehlabathi. Ngamawaka alishumi akwaEfrayim ke lawo. Ngamawaka akwaManase ke lawo.
18 NgoZebhulon wathi, Vuya, Zebhulon, ngokuphuma kwakho; Vuya, Isakare, ngeentente zakho.
19 Baya kumema izizwe, zize entabeni, Babingelele khona imibingelelo yobulungisa; Ngokuba besanya ubutyebi beelwandle Nezinto eziselelwe entlabathini.
20 NgoGadi wathi, Makabongwe owandisa uGadi. Ubuthuma njengengonyamakazi, Adlavule umkhono, ewe, nokakayi.
21 Wazibonela isahlulo esiyingqalo; Ngokuba besibekwe khona isabelo sommisi-mthetho. Weza kwiintloko zabantu, Wenza ubulungisa bukaYehova, Namasiko akhe ndawonye namaSirayeli.
22 Wathi ngoDan, UDan lithole lengonyama; Usuka umtsi eBhashan.
23 NgoNafetali wathi, Nafetali, ukholisiweyo kanye, Uzeleyo yintsikelelo kaYehova, Woluhlutha ulwandle nomzantsi.
24 NgoAshere wathi, Usikelelwe ngaphezu koonyana uAshere; Makabe likholo phakathi kwabazalwana bakhe, Athi nkxu unyawo lwakhe eolini.
25 Imivalo yakho yoba sisinyithi nobhedu, Kube ngangeemini zakho ukonwaba kwakho.
26 Akukho unjengoThixo, Yeshurun, Ulokhwela emazulwini eluncedo lwakho, Ulokhwela esibhakabhakeni enobungangamsha bakhe.
27 Likhaya uThixo wamandulo, Ngaphantsi ziingalo ezingunaphakade. Ugxotha utshaba ebusweni bakho; Uthi, Tshabalalisa!
28 USirayeli uhlala ekholosile, Uwodwa umthombo kaYakobi, Usinga ezweni lengqolowa newayini entsha; Inene izulu lalo liqhoqhoza umbethe.
29 Unoyolo, Sirayeli! Ngubani na onjengawe, bantu basindiswe nguYehova, Ikhaka loncedo lwakho, Ikrele lobungangamsha bakho. Ziya kuhanahanisa kuwe iintshaba zakho, Unyathele ke wena emimangweni yazo.




Isahluko 34

1 Wenyuka ke uMoses, esuka ezi nkqantosini zakwaMowabhi, waya entabeni yeNebho, encotsheni yePisga, ekhangelene neYeriko. UYehova wambonisa lonke ilizwe laseGiliyadi, wasa kwaDan.
2 nelakwaNafetali lonke, nelizwe lakwaEfrayim noManase, nelizwe lonke lakwaYuda, wasa elwandle lwasentshonalanga;
3 nelasezantsi, nommandla wesihlambo seYeriko, umzi wamasundu, wasa eTsohare.
4 Wathi uYehova kuye, Lilo eli ilizwe endafunga ngalo kooAbraham noIsake noYakobi, ndisithi, Ndiya kulinika imbewu yakho; ndikukhangelisile ngamehlo, ke akuyi kuwela uye kulo.
5 Wafela khona uMoses, umkhonzi kaYehova, ezweni lakwaMowabhi, ngokomlomo kaYehova.
6 Wamngcwabela emfuleni, ezweni lakwaMowabhi, malungana neBhete-pehore. Akukho bani ulaziyo ingcwaba lakhe unanamhla.
7 UMoses ebeminyaka ilikhulu elinamanci mabini ezelwe, mini wafa; lingenalurhatyazo iliso lakhe, esomelele nokomelela.
8 Oonyana bakaSirayeli bamlilela uMoses ezinkqantosini zakwaMowabhi imilula emashumi mathathu; yaphela ke imihla yokumlilela nokumenzela isijwili uMoses.
9 Waza uYoshuwa, unyana kaNun, wazala ngumoya wobulumko; ngokuba uMoses wayecinezele ngezandla zakhe uMoses wamwisela umthetho ngako.
10 Akubanga savela kwaSirayeli mprofeti unjengoMoses, awathi uYehova wamazi, bakhangelana ebusweni;
11 ngemiqondiso yonke, nezimanga, awamthumayo uYehova ukuba azenze ezweni laseYiputa kuFaro, nakubakhonzi bakhe bonke, nakwilizwe lakhe lonke;
12 nangaso sonke isandla esithe nkqi, nangokoyikeka konke okukhulu, awakwenzayo uMoses emehlweni amaSirayeli onke.
