1 Ke kaloku amaFilisti alwa namaSirayeli; asaba amadoda akwaSirayeli phambi kwamaFilisti, awa engxwelerhiwe ezintabeni zaseGilibhowa.
2 AmaFilisti athana mbende noSawule noonyana bakhe. AmaFilisti ambulala uYonatan, noAbhinadabhi, noMalekishuwa, oonyana bakaSawule.
3 Yanzima imfazwe kuSawule. Bamfumana abatoli, wathuthumela ngenxa yabatoli.
4 Wathi uSawule kumphathi weentonga zakhe, Rhola ikrele lakho, undihlabe ngalo, hleze beze aba bangalukileyo, bafekethe ngam. Akavuma umphathi weentonga zakhe, ngokuba ubesoyika kakhulu. Walithabatha uSawule ikrele, waziwisa phezu kwalo.
5 Uthe umphathi weentonga zakhe, akubona ukuba ufile uSawule, waziwisa naye phezu kwekrele lakhe, wafa.
6 Wafa ke uSawule, noonyana bakhe abathathu, nendlu yakhe yonke; bafa kunye.
7 Athi onke amadoda akwaSirayeli abesentilini leyo, akubona ukuba kusatyiwe, ukuba ufile uSawule noonyana bakhe, ayilahla imizi yawo, asaba; eza ke amaFilisti, ahlala kuyo.
8 Kwathi ngengomso, amaFilisti eza kubhunyula ababuleweyo, amfumana uSawule noonyana bakhe bewile ezintabeni zaseGilibhowa.
9 Ambhunyula, ayisusa intloko yakhe neentonga zakhe, athumela ezweni lamaFilisti ngeenxa zonke, ukuba aluxele olu daba lumnandi kwizithixo zabo nasebantwini.
10 Azibeka iintonga zakhe endlwini yezithixo zawo, ukakayi lwakhe alubethelela endlwini kaDagon.
11 Beva bonke abaseYabheshe yaseGiliyadi konke awakwenzayo amaFilisti kuSawule,
12 esuka onke amadoda anobukroti, asithwala isidumbu sikaSawule nezidumbu zoonyana bakhe, azizisa eYabheshe. Awangcwaba amathambo abo phantsi komterebhinti eYabheshe, azila ukudla imihla yasixhenxe.
13 Wafa ke uSawule ngokumeneza kwakhe, awameneza ngako kuYehova, ezwini likaYehova angaligcinanga; kwanangokubuzisa kwakhe koneshologu, ngokuquqela kuye,
14 akaquqela kuYehova; wambulala ke, wabuguqulela ubukumkani kuDavide unyana kaYese.




Isahluko 11

1 Abuthelana ke onke amaSirayeli kuDavide eHebron, athi, Uyabona, silithambo lakho, siyinyama yakho;
2 kwangaphambili, oko uSawule ebengukumkani, ibinguwe obuphuma ungena namaSirayeli; wathi uYehova uThixo wakho kuwe, Wena uya kubalusa abantu bam amaSirayeli; wena uya kuba yinganga yabantu bam amaSirayeli.
3 Afika onke amadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli kukumkani eHebron, wenza umnqophiso nawo uDavide eHebron, phambi koYehova; amthambisa uDavide ukuba abe ngukumkani kumaSirayeli, ngokwelizwi likaYehova ngesandla sikaSamuweli.
4 Wahamba uDavide namaSirayeli onke, waya eYerusalem (yiYebhusi ke leyo), apho abekhona amaYebhusi, abemi belo zwe.
5 Bathi abemi beYebhusi kuDavide, Akusayi kungena apha. Wayithimba uDavide imboniselo yeZiyon (ngumzi kaDavide ke lowo).
6 Wathi uDavide, Owaxabele amaYebhusi kwasentloko, woba yintloko nomthetheli. Wenyuka kwasentloko uYowabhi unyana kaTseruya, waba yintloko ke.
7 UDavide wahlala emboniselweni apho; ngenxa yoko bathi ngumzi kaDavide.
8 Wawakha umzi, wajikelezisa ngeenxa zonke, wathabathela eMilo, wajikelezisa. UYowabhi wawasindisa amaqongqolo aloo mzi.
9 UDavide waya eba mkhulu ngokuba mkhulu; uYehova wemikhosi ubenaye.
10 Zizo ezi iintloko zamagorha abekuDavide, esomelezana naye ebukumkanini bakhe kunye namaSirayeli onke, ukuba amenze ukumkani, ngokwelizwi likaYehova kumaSirayeli.
11 Lilo eli inani lamagorha kaDavide: nguYashobheham unyana kaHakimoni, intloko yabaphathi-mikhosi. Yena wathi rhuthu intshuntshe yakhe kumakhulu amathathu, awahlatywayo ngasihlandlo sinye.
12 Emva kwakhe nguElazare unyana kaDodo, umAhowa, owayengomnye kumagorha amathathu.
13 Yena wayenoDavide ePas-damim; amaFilisti ayebuthelene khona ukuba alwe. Kwakukho khona isiqwenga somhlaba, sinerhasi ichumile; basaba abantu ebusweni bamaFilisti.
14 Wesuka yena wamisa esazulwini sesiqwenga eso, wasithimba, yena wawabulala amaFilisti; uYehova wenza ke usindiso olukhulu.
15 Kwehla isithathu sabaziintloko emashumini amathathu, saya kuDavide eweni, emqolombeni waseAdulam; yaye impi yamaFilisti imise iintente entilini yamaRafa.
16 UDavide oko ubesemboniselweni apho; ikampu yamaFilisti oko ibiseBhetelehem.
17 Wanqwena uDavide wathi, Akwaba, bethu, bendingasezwa amanzi equla laseBhetelehem elisesangweni!
18 Atyhudisa empini yamaFilisti amadoda amathathu lawo, akha amanzi equleni laseBhetelehem elisesangweni, awathwala awazisa kuDavide. Akavuma ke uDavide ukuwasela; wawathululela phantsi, phambi koYehova,
19 wathi, Makube lee kum, Thixo wam, ukwenza oko. Igazi lala madoda, eliyimiphefumlo yawo, ndolisela yini na? ngokuba awazisa encame imiphefumlo yawo. Akavuma ke ukuwasela. Enza ezo zinto amagorha lawo mathathu.
20 UAbhishayi, umninawa kaYowabhi, yena waye eyintloko yamathathu. Yena wathi rhuthu intshuntshe yakhe kumakhulu amathathu, wabinza. Waba negama ke kulawo mathathu.
21 Kulawo mathathu wayezukile kunamabini, waba ngumthetheli wawo ke; akafika kodwa kulawa mathathu.
22 UBhenaya unyana kaYoyada, unyana wendoda enobukroti yaseKabhetseli, ezenzo zininzi, yena wabulala iingwanyalala ezimbini zakwaMowabhi; yena wehla, wabulala ingonyama emhadini phakathi, mhla ngekhephu.
23 Yena wabulala indoda engumYiputa, indoda enewonga, ekubhite zintlanu; umYiputa lowo ephethe intshuntshe enjengomthi wabaluki beengubo. Wehla ke waya kuyo ephethe intonga, wayihlutha intshuntshe esandleni somYiputa lowo, wambulala kwangentshuntshe yakhe.
24 Wenza ezo zinto uBhenaya unyana kaYoyada; waba negama ke kwisithathu eso samagorha.
25 Yabona, wayezukile yena kunamashumi amathathu lawo; kodwa akafika kwamathathu lawa. UDavide wammisa ephakathini lakhe.

15 Ngabo abo bayiwelayo iYordan ngenyanga yokuqala, izele, ihamba phezu kweendonga zayo; bagxotha bonke abasezintilini empumalanga nasentshonalanga.
16 Kwaya aboonyana bakaBhenjamin bakaYuda emboniselweni kuDavide.
17 Waphuma uDavide, waya kubakhawulela, wathi kubo, Ukuba niza kum ninoxolo, ukuba nindincede, intliziyo yam yoba nye neyenu; ke ukuba nize kundikhohlisa, nindinikele kubabandezeli bam, kungekho lugonyamelo esandleni sam, wobona uThixo woobawo bethu, ohlwaye.
18 Umoya wamthi gqubuthu uAmasayi, intloko yabaphathi-mikhosi, wathi, Singabakho, Davide; singakuwe, nyana kaYese. Uxolo, uxolo lube kuwe, uxolo lube kubancedi bakho; ngokuba uya kunceda uThixo wakho. Wabamkela ke uDavide, wabamisa baziintloko zamaqela.
19 KumaManase kwabakho abaphambela kuDavide, ekuyeni kwakhe namaFilisti ukuba kuliwe noSawule, baza abawanceda; ngokuba zacebisana zamndulula izikhulu zamaFilisti, zisithi, Wophambela kuSawule inkosi yakhe, senzakale ke.
20 Ekuyeni kwakhe eTsikelage, wathelelwa ngabakwaManase, uAdena, noYozabhadi, noYedihayeli, noMikayeli, noYozabhadi, noElihu, noTsiletayi, iintloko zamawaka akwaManase.
21 Bona bancedisana noDavide kuloo matutu; ngokuba babengamagorha anobukroti bonke, babengabathetheli emkhosini.
22 Ngokuba ngelo xesha babesiya iimini ngeemini kuDavide ukumnceda, yada yangumkhosi omkhulu, njengomkhosi kaThixo.
23 Ngawo la amanani eentloko ezaxhobela imfazwe, zeza kuDavide eHebron, ukuba buguqulelwe kuye ubukumkani bukaSawule, ngokomlomo kaYehova.
24 Oonyana bakaYuda ababephethe amakhaka nezikhali ngamawaka amathandathu anamakhulu asibhozo, exhobele imfazwe.

40 Kananjalo abakufuphi nabo, kwada kwesa kwaIsakare, nakwaZebhulon, nakwaNafetali, bazisa izonka ngamaesile, nangeenkamela, nangoondlebende, nangamaqegu, ukudla okungumgubo, nezicumba zamakhiwane nezeerasintyisi, newayini, neoli, neenkomo, nempahla emfutshane, into eninzi; ngokuba bekuvuywa kwaSirayeli.




Isahluko 13

1 Wacebisana uDavide nabathetheli bamawaka nabamakhulu, iinganga zonke.
2 Wathi uDavide kwibandla lonke lakwaSirayeli, Ukuba kulungile kuni, ukuba kuvela kuYehova uThixo wethu, masiphange, sithumele kubazalwana bethu abaseleyo emazweni onke akwaSirayeli, kunye nabo ke sithumele kubabingeleli nabaLevi abasemizini yamadlelo abo, ukuba babuthelane kuthi;
3 siyiguqulele kuthi ityeya kaThixo wethu; ngokuba asibuzisanga kuyo ngeemini zikaSawule.
4 Lathi lonke ibandla, Makwenjiwe njalo; ngokuba lalilungile elo zwi emehlweni abantu bonke.
5 Wawabizela ndawonye ke uDavide onke amaSirayeli, wathabathela eShihore yaseYiputa, wada wasa ekungeneni eHamati, ukuba ayithabathe ityeya kaThixo eKiriyati-yeharim.
6 Wenyuka uDavide namaSirayeli onke, waya eBhahala, eyiKiriyati-yeharim eyakwaYuda, ukuba ayinyuse apho ityeya kaThixo onguYehova, onguHleli-ezikerubhini, igama lokunqulwa kwakhe.
7 Bayikhwelisa ityeya kaThixo enqwelweni entsha, ukuphuma endlwini ka-Abhinadabhi; u-Uza noAhiyo bayiqhuba inqwelo.
8 UDavide namaSirayeli onke baqamba phambi koYehova ngamandla onke, ngeengoma, nangeehadi, nangemirhubhe, nangeengqongqo, nangamacangci nangamaxilongo.
9 Baya bafika esandeni sikaKidon; u-Uza wasa isandla sakhe, wayibamba ityeya; ngokuba iinkomo beziyigungqisa.
10 Wavutha umsindo kaYehova ku-Uza, wambetha ngenxa enokuba wasa isandla sakhe etyeyeni; wafela khona phambi koThixo.
11 Kwavutha umsindo kuDavide, ngokuba uYehova emtyhobozele ngotyhobozo u-Uza; wathi loo ndawo yiPeretse-uza, unanamhla.
12 UDavide wamoyika uThixo ngaloo mini, wathi, Ndothini na ukuyizisa kum ityeya kaThixo?
13 UDavide akayisa kuye ityeya emzini kaDavide; wayisonga, wayiphambukisela endlwini kaObhedi-edom waseGati.
14 Yahlala ityeya kaThixo emzini kaObhedi-edom, endlwini yakhe, iinyanga zantathu. UYehova wayisikelela ke indlu kaObhedi-edom, nento yonke anayo.

1 Ke kaloku uHiram, ukumkani waseTire, wathuma abathunywa kuDavide, nemisedare, neengcibi zeendonga, neengcibi zemithi, ukumakhela indlu.
2 Wazi uDavide ukuba uYehova umqinisile waba ngukumkani wamaSirayeli; baphakanyiselwa phezulu ubukumkani bakhe ngenxa yabantu bakhe amaSirayeli.
3 UDavide wabuya wazeka abanye abafazi eYerusalem; uDavide wabuya wazala abanye oonyana neentombi.
4 Ngawo la amagama abantwana awabazuzayo eYerusalem: uShamuwa, noShobhabhi, noNatan, noSolomon,
5 noIbhehare, noElishuwa, noElipelete,
6 noNoga, noNefege, noYafiya,
7 noElishama, noBheleyada, noElifelete.
8 Athi ke amaFilisti, akuva ukuba uthanjiswe uDavide, waba ngukumkani kumaSirayeli onke, enyuka onke amaFilisti, aya kumfuna uDavide. Weva uDavide, waphuma waya kuwahlangabeza.
9 AmaFilisti eza athi dwe entilini yamaRafa.
10 Wabuza uDavide kuThixo, wathi, Ndinyuke na ndiye kumaFilisti? Wowanikela na esandleni sam? Wathi uYehova kuye, Nyuka, ndowanikela esandleni sakho.
11 Benyuka baya eBhahali-peratsim, wawabulalela khona uDavide. Wathi uDavide, UThixo uzityhobozele iintshaba zam ngesandla sam, njengokutyhoboza kwamanzi; ngenxa yoko bathi igama laloo ndawo yiBhahali-peratsim.
12 Azishiya apho izithixo zawo; wathi uDavide mazitshiswe ngomlilo.
13 Abuya aphinda amaFilisti, athi dwe entilini leyo. Wabuya wabuza uDavide kuThixo.
14 Wathi uThixo kuye, Uze ungenyuki uwasukele; jika umke kuwo, ufike kuwo malunga nemithi yemibhaka;
15 kuthi, ekuveni kwakho isandi sokuhamba emantloko emithi yemibhaka, wandule ukuphuma ulwe; ngokuba uphumile uThixo phambi kwakho, ukuba awuxabele umkhosi wamaFilisti.
16 Wenza uDavide njengoko uThixo wamwisela umthetho ngako; bawuxabela umkhosi wamaFilisti, bathabathela eGibheyon, besa naseGezere.
17 Lwaphuma lwagqiba ilizwe udumo lukaDavide; uYehova wazenza zonke iintlanga ukuba zinkwantye nguye.




Isahluko 15

1 UDavide wazenzela izindlu emzini kaDavide; wayilungiselela indawo ityeya kaThixo, wayimisela intente.
2 Waza uDavide wathi, Mayingathwalwa ityeya kaThixo ngabangebaLevi; ngokuba unyule bona uYehova ukuba bayithwale ityeya kaThixo, bamlungiselele ngonaphakade.
3 UDavide wawabizela ndawonye onke amaSirayeli eYerusalem, ukuze ityeya kaYehova inyuswe, isiwe endaweni yayo abeyilungisele yona.
4 Wabahlanganisa uDavide oonyana baka-Aron nabaLevi.
5 Koonyana bakaKehati yangu-Uriyeli umthetheli, nabazalwana bakhe, belikhulu elinamanci mabini.
6 Koonyana bakaMerari yanguAsaya umthetheli, nabazalwana bakhe, bengamakhulu amabini anamanci mabini.

10 Koonyana bakaUziyeli yanguAminadabhi umthetheli, nabazalwana bakhe, belikhulu elinashumi-nye linababini.
11 UDavide wabiza ooTsadoki noAbhiyatare ababingeleli, nabaLevi ooUriyeli, noAsaya, noYoweli, noShemaya, noEliyeli, noAminadabhi.
12 Wathi kubo, Niziintloko zezindlu zooyihlo kubaLevi; zingcwaliseni nina nabazalwana benu, ninyuse ityeya kaYehova uThixo kaSirayeli, ize apho ndiyilungiselele khona;
13 ngokuba, yabingenini nje enayinyusayo kwasekuqaleni, wasityhobozela uYehova uThixo wethu, ngokuba singamfunanga ngokwesiko.
14 Bazingcwalisa ke ababingeleli nabaLevi, ukuba bayinyuse ityeya kaYehova uThixo kaSirayeli.
15 Bayithwala oonyana bakaLevi ityeya kaThixo, njengoko abemwisele umthetho uMoses ngokwelizwi likaYehova, emagxeni abo, ngezibonda ezikuwo.
16 Wathi uDavide kubathetheli babaLevi, mabamise abazalwana babo babe ziimvumi, beneempahla zokuvuma: imirhubhe, neehadi, namacangci akhenkcezayo, kuphakanyiswe ngesandi sovuyo.
17 AbaLevi bamisa ke uHeman unyana kaYoweli, nakubazalwana bakhe uSafu unyana kaBherekiya, nakoonyana bakaMerari, abazalwana babo, uEtan unyana kaKushaya,
18 benabazalwana babo bolwesibini udidi: yanguZekariya, noBhen, noYahaziyeli, noShemiramoti, noYehiyeli, noUni, noEliyabhi, noBhenaya, noMahazeya, noMatitiya, noElifelehu, noMikeneya, oo-Obhedi-edom, noYehiyeli, abamasango.
19 Iimvumi, ooHeman, noAsafu, noEtan, baba ngabokuvakalisa ngamacangci obhedu;
20 ooZekariya, noHaziyeli, noShemiramoti, noYehiyeli, noUni, noEliyabhi, noMagaseya, noBhenaya, ngemirhubhe, ngeleentombi ilizwi;
21 ooMatitiya, noElifelehu, noMikeneha, no-Obhedi-edom, noYehiyeli, noAzaziya ngeehadi, ngelamadoda ilizwi, ukuba bahlabele.
22 UKenaniya, umthetheli wabaLevi ekuthwaleni, wafundisa ukuthwala; ngokuba ebenengqondo yoko.
23 OoBherekiya noElikana babengabamasango etyeya.
24 OoShebhaniya, noYehoshafati, noNataniyeli, noAmasayi, noZekariya, noBhenaya, noEliyezere, ababingeleli, babengabokuvuthela ngamaxilongo phambi kwetyeya kaThixo, Oo-Obhedi-edom noYehiya babengabamasango etyeya.
25 Kwathi ke ooDavide, namadoda amakulu akwaSirayeli, nabathetheli bamawaka, baya kuyinyusa ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova endlwini kaObhedi-edom, bevuya.
26 Kwathi, ekubancedeni kukaThixo abaLevi, bayithwala ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova, babingelela iinkunzi ezintsha zeenkomo zasixhenxe, neenkunzi zeegusha zasixhenxe.
27 Wayambethe ingubo yokwaleka yelinen ecikizekileyo uDavide, nabaLevi bonke ababethwele ityeya, neemvumi, noKenaniya umphathi wabathwali; ke uDavide wayebhinqe iefodi yelinen emhlophe.
28 AmaSirayeli onke abeyinyusa ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova eduma, enesandi sezigodlo, nesamaxilongo, nesamacangci, evakalisa ngemirhubhe nangeehadi.
29 Kwathi ke ekufikeni kwetyeya yomnqophiso kaYehova emzini kaDavide, walunguza ngefestile uMikali, intombi kaSawule, wabona ukumkani uDavide esina, eqamba, wamcekisa entliziyweni yakhe.

3 Wababela bonke abantu bakwaSirayeli, ethabathela kwindoda wesa nakumfazi; elowo wamnika intenda yesonka, nomlinganiso wewayini, nesicumba seerasintyisi.
4 Wamisa phambi kwetyeya kaYehova abalungiseleli kubaLevi, ukuba bakhumbuze, babulele, badumise uYehova uThixo kaSirayeli.
5 YanguAsafu intloko, yanguZekariya emva kwakhe, noYehiyeli, noShemiramoti, noYehiyeli, noMatitiya, noEliyabhi, noBhenaya, no-Obhedi-edom, noYahaziyeli, ngeempahla zemirhubhe nangeehadi; uAsafu wenza isandi ngamacangci.
6 OoBhenaya noYahaziyeli ababingeleli benza isandi ngamaxilongo ngamaxesha onke, phambi kwetyeya yomnqophiso kaThixo.
7 Waza ngaloo mini uDavide wabamisela kuqala ooAsafu nabazalwana bakhe ukubulela kuYehova:
8 Bulelani kuYehova, nqulani igama lakhe, Yazisani ezizweni izenzo zakhe ezincamisileyo.
9 Vumani kuye, mbetheleni uhadi, Xoxani ngemisebenzi yakhe yonke ebalulekileyo.
10 Qhayisani ngegama lakhe elingcwele, Mayivuye intliziyo yabamngxameleyo uYehova.
11 Mfuneni uYehova namandla akhe, Ngxamelani ubuso bakhe ngamaxesha onke.
12 Khumbulani imisebenzi yakhe ebalulekileyo, awayenzayo, Izimanga zakhe nezigwebo zomlomo wakhe,
13 Mbewu kaSirayeli, yomkhonzi wakhe, Nyana bakaYakobi, banyulwa bakhe.
14 NguYehova, nguThixo wethu yena; Zisehlabathini lonke izigwebo zakhe.
15 Khumbulani ngonaphakade umnqophiso wakhe, Ilizwi awalimisela izizukulwana eziliwaka,
16 Awanqophisana ngalo noAbraham; Nokufunga kwakhe kuIsake;
17 Nokumisa kwakhe ukuba kube ngummiselo kuYakobi, Kube ngumnqophiso ongunaphakade kuSirayeli;
18 Esithi, Ndikunika ilizwe lakwaKanan, Libe licandelo lelifa lenu,
19 Nisengamadoda ambalwa, Nibancinane, ningabaphambukeli kulo.
20 Bahamba besuka kolunye uhlanga, baye kolunye uhlanga; Besuka kobunye ubukumkani, baye kwabanye abantu.
21 Akavumela mntu ukuba abacudise, Wohlwaya ookumkani ngenxa yabo,
22 Esithi, Musani ukubachukumisa abathanjiswa bam, Musani ukubaphatha kakubi abaprofeti bam.
23 Vumani kuYehova, nonke hlabathi, Shumayelani iindaba ezilungileyo zosindiso lwakhe iimini ngeemini.
24 Balisani ezintlangeni zonke uzuko lwakhe, Balisani ezizweni zonke imisebenzi yakhe ebalulekileyo.
25 Ngokuba mkhulu uYehova, engowokudunyiswa kunene; Uyoyikeka ngaphezu koothixo bonke,
26 Ngokuba bonke oothixo bezizwe abanto zanto; UYehova yena wenza amazulu.
27 Yindili nobungangamela phambi kwakhe, Ngamandla novuyo endaweni yakhe engcwele.
28 Mnikeni uYehova, nina mizalwane yezizwe, Mnikeni uYehova uzuko namandla.
29 Mnikeni uYehova uzuko lwegama lakhe; Zisani umnikelo, nime phambi kwakhe; Mnquleni uYehova, nivethe ezingcwele.
30 Thuthumelani phambi kwakhe, nonke hlabathi; Elimiweyo liya kuzinza ngoko, lingashukumi.
31 Malivuye izulu, ligcobe ihlabathi, Makuthiwe ezintlangeni, UYehova ngukumkani.
32 Malugqume ulwandle nokuzala kwalo; Malidlamke ilizwe, nento yonke ekulo,
33 Ize imemelele imithi yehlathi phambi koYehova; Ngokuba esiza kuligweba ihlabathi.
34 Bulelani kuYehova ngokuba elungile, Ngokuba ingunaphakade inceba yakhe.
35 Yithini, Sisindise, Thixo osisindisayo, Usibuthe, usihlangule ezintlangeni, Ukuze sibulele igama lakho elingcwele, Sizingce ngendumiso yakho.
36 Makabongwe uYehova, uThixo kaSirayeli, Kususela kwaphakade, kude kuse ephakadeni! Bathi ke bonke abantu, Amen, bamdumisa uYehova.
37 Wabashiya apho phambi kwetyeya yomnqophiso kaYehova ooAsafu nabazalwana bakhe, ukuba balugiselele phambi kwetyeya ngamaxesha onke, ngokwento yemini ngangemini yayo;
38 noo-Obhedi-edom nabazalwana babo, bemashumi mathandathu anesibhozo; uObhedi-edom, unyana kaYedutun, noHosa bengabamasango.
39 UTsadoki umbingeleli, nabazalwana bakhe abangababingeleli, babephambi komnquba kaYehova esigangeni esiseGibheyon,
40 ukuba banyuse amadini anyukayo kuYehova esibingelelweni sedini elinyukayo amaxesha onke, kusasa nangokuhlwa, njengako konke okubhaliweyo emyalelweni kaYehova, awawumisela amaSirayeli.
41 Babenabo ooHeman noYedutun, nabanye abanyulwa, abo babekhankanywe ngamagama, ukuba babulele kuYehova, ngokuba ingunaphakade inceba yakhe;
42 benooHeman noYedutun, benamaxilongo, namacangci, abo benza isandi beneempahla zokuvuma zikaThixo; oonyana bakaYedutun bengabamasango.
43 Bahamba bonke abantu, elowo waya endlwini yakhe; wabuya ke uDavide, weza kusikelela indlu yakhe.

1 Ke kaloku kwathi, xa ahleliyo uDavide endlwini yakhe, wathi uDavide kuNatan umprofeti, Uyabona, mna ndihleli endlwini yemisedare; ke yona ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova iphantsi kwamalengalenga.
2 Wathi uNatan kuDavide, Konke okusentliziyweni yakho, kwenze, ngokuba uThixo unawe.
3 Kwathi ngobo busuku lafika ilizwi likaThixo kuNatan, lisithi,
4 Hamba uye kuthi kuDavide umkhonzi wam, Utsho uYehova ukuthi, Wena akusayi kundakhela ndlu yakuhlala.
5 Ngokuba andihlalanga ndlwini, kususela kulaa mini ndawanyusayo ngayo amaSirayeli, unanamhla; ke ndisuka ententeni ndiye ententeni, ndisuke emnqubeni ndiye emnqubeni.
6 Ekuhambeni konke, endakuhamba-hambayo namaSirayeli onke, khe ndathetha izwi na nakumnye kubagwebi bakwaSirayeli, endabawisela umthetho wokwalusa abantu bam, lokuthi, Yini na ukuba ningandakheli ndlu yamisedare?
7 Ke ngoko wotsho kuDavide umkhonzi wam, ukuthi, Utsho uYehova wemikhosi, ukuthi, Ndakuthabatha edlelweni mna, ekulandeleni impahla emfutshane, ukuba ube yinganga yabantu bam amaSirayeli.
8 Ndaba nawe kuko konke owahamba kuko, ndazinqumla zonke iintshaba zakho ebusweni bakho, ndakwenzela igama njengegama labakhulu abasehlabathini.
9 Ndiya kubamisela indawo abantu bam amaSirayeli, ndibatyale, beme emanxuweni abo, bangabi sagungqa; oonyana bobutshijolo bangabuyi babonakalise, njengamhla mnene;
10 kususela kulaa mini ndabamisela abantu bam amaSirayeli abagwebi, ndazithoba zonke iintshaba zakho. Ke ndiyakuxelela ukuba uYehova uya kukwakhela indlu.
11 Kothi, xa ithe yazaliseka imihla yakho yokuba uye kooyihlo, ndiyipha kamise emva kwakho imbewu yakhe, eya kuvela koonyana bakho, ndibuzi nzise ukukumkani bakhe.
12 Nguye oya kundakhela indlu, ndiyizinzise itrone yakhe, kude kuse ephakadeni.
13 Mna ndiya kuba nguyise kuye, yena abe ngunyana kum. Inceba yam andiyi kuyisusa kuye, njengoko ndayisusayo kowayengaphambi kwakho.
14 Ndiya kummisa endlwini yam, nasebukumkanini bam, kude kuse ephakadeni; itrone yakhe iya kuzinza kude kuse ephakadeni.
15 Njengaloo mazwi onke, njengaloo mbono wonke, wenjenjalo uNatan ukuthetha kuDavide.
16 Waya ukumkani uDavide, wahlala phambi koYehova, wathi, Ndingubani na, Yehova Thixo, iyintoni na indlu yam, ukuba ude undizise nalapha?
17 Kuncinane oko ke emehlweni akho, Thixo; uthethe nangendlu yomkhonzi wakho wasingisa mgama; wandikhangela, wandenza umntu, wandinyusa, Yehova Thixo.
18 Usaya kongeza ntoni na uDavide, ukuthetha kuwe ngokusingisele ekuzukisweni komkhonzi wakho lo? Wena uyamazi umkhonzi wakho lo.
19 Yehova, ubenze ngenxa yomkhonzi wakho, nangokwentliziyo yakho, bonke obo bukhulu, ukwazisa ezi zenzo zonke zikhulu kangaka.
20 Yehova, akukho unjengawe; akukho Thixo ngaphaya kwakho, njengoko konke sikuvileyo ngeendlebe zethu.
21 Luluphi na uhlanga ehlabathini apha, olunjengabantu bakho amaSirayeli; awaya kuzikhululela lona uThixo, ukuba lube ngabantu, ukuba akumisele igama ngezenzo ezikhulu nezoyikekayo, ngokugxotha iintlanga phambi kwabantu bakho owabakhululayo eYiputa?
22 Wabenza abantu bakho amaSirayeli baba ngabantu kuwe, kude kuse ephakadeni; wena, Yehova, waba nguThixo kubo.
23 Kaloku, Yehova, ilizwi olithethileyo ngomkhonzi wakho, nangendlu yakhe, malibe yinyaniso kude kuse ephakadeni, wenze njengoko uthethileyo;
24 libe yinyaniso, likhule igama lakho kude kuse ephakadeni, kusithiwa, UYehova wemikhosi, uThixo wamaSirayeli, nguThixo kuSirayeli; indlu kaDavide, umkhonzi wakho, iqinile phambi kwakho.
25 Ngokuba wena, Thixo wam, ukutyhilile ezindlebeni zomkhonzi wakho, ukuba uya kumakhela indlu. Ngenxa yoko umkhonzi wakhe ufumene intliziyo yokuthandaza phambi kwakho.
26 Kaloku, Yehova, unguye uThixo wena; uzithethile ke ngomkhonzi wakho ezi zinto zilungileyo.
27 Kaloku makukholeke kuwe ukuyisikelela indlu yomkhonzi wakho, ukuba ihlale ihleli phambi kwakho ngonaphakade; ngokuba wena, Yehova, uyisikelele into, yosikeleleka ke ngonaphakade.

5 Bahamba, bamxelela uDavide okwenziwe kuloo madoda. Wathumela bawakhawulela; ngokuba amadoda lawo ayehlazisiwe kunene. Wathi ukumkani, Hlalani eYeriko zide zihlume iindevu zenu, nandule ukubuya ke.

1 Ke kaloku uSathana wesukela phezulu kumaSirayeli, waxhokonxa uDavide ukuba awabale amaSirayeli.
2 Wathi ke uDavide kuYowabhi nakubathetheli babantu, Khaniye, niwabale amaSirayeli, nithabathela eBher-shebha, nide nise kwaDan, nilizise kum, ndilazi inani lawo.
3 Wathi uYowabhi, UYehova makalongezelele inani labantu bakhe izihlandlo ezilikhulu, kunoko bangako; kodwa, nkosi yam, kumkani, abangabakhonzi benkosi yam bonke, yini na? Iyifunelani na le nto inkosi yam? Yini na ukuba iwazekise ityala amaSirayeli?
4 Laqinisela ilizwi lokumkani kuYowabhi. Waphuma ke uYowabhi, wahambahamba kumaSirayeli onke, weza eYerusalem.
5 UYowabhi wamnika ke uDavide inani lokubalwa kwabantu. AmaSirayeli onke aba sisigidi esinye esinamawaka alikhulu samadoda aphatha ikrele; namaYuda angamakhulu amane anamanci asixhenxe amawaka amadoda aphatha ikrele.
6 Ke abaLevi namaBhenjamin akawabalanga phakathi kwawo; ngokuba ilizwi lokumkani laye lilisikizi kuYowabhi.
7 Kwaba kubi emehlweni kaThixo ngenxa yale nto; wawohlwaya ke amaSirayeli.
8 Wathi uDavide kuThixo, Ndonile kunene ngale nto ndiyenzileyo; kaloku khawubukhwelelise ubugwenxa bomkhonzi wakho; ngokuba ndenze ubudenge obukhulu.
9 Wathetha uYehova kuGadi, imboni kaDavide, esithi,
10 Yiya uthethe kuDavide, uthi, Utsho uYehova ukuthi, Ndikubekela izinto ezintathu; zinyulele ibe nye kuzo, ndiyenze kuwe.
11 Waya ke uGadi kuDavide, wathi kuye, Utsho uYehova ukuthi, Zityumbele;
12 nokuba yiminyaka emithathu yendlala; nokuba ziinyanga ezintathu ugxothwa ziintshaba zakho, nekrele leentshaba zakho likufikela; nokuba yimihla emithathu yekrele likaYehova, nendyikitya yokufa ezweni, isithunywa sikaYehova sisonakalisa emimandleni yonke yakwaSirayeli. Kaloku ke, yenza ilizwi endolibuyisela kondithumileyo.
13 Wathi uDavide kuGadi, Ndididekile kunene; masendisiwa esandleni sikaYehova, ngokuba ininzi imfesane yakhe; mandingaweli esandleni somntu.
14 UYehova wathoba ke indyikitya yokufa kwaSirayeli; kwawa amashumi asixhenxe amawaka amadoda kwaSirayeli.
15 UThixo wathuma isithunywa eYerusalem, ukuba siyitshabalalise. Sakubona ukuba siyatshabalalisa, wabona uYehova, wazohlwaya ngenxa yobubi obo; wathi kwisithunywa eso sitshabalalisayo, Kwanele, sithobe kaloku isandla sakho. Ke kaloku isithunywa sikaYehova sema esandeni sikaOrnan umYebhusi.
16 UDavide wawaphakamisa amehlo akhe, wabona isithunywa sikaYehova simi phakathi komhlaba nezulu, sithe rhuthu ikrele laso ngesandla, lolulelwe phezu kweYerusalem. UDavide namadoda amakhulu, bezigubungele ngeengubo ezirhwexayo, bawa phantsi ngobuso.
17 Wathi uDavide kuThixo, Asindim yini na othe mababalwe abantu? Yaba ndim ke owonileyo, ndenza ububi ukwenza oko; ke ezi zimvu zenze ntoni na zona? Yehova Thixo wam, isandla sakho masifikele mna, nendlu kabawo, singabi kubantu bakho, ukuba babulawe.
18 Sathi isithunywa sikaYehova kuGadi, Makatsho kuDavide, enyuke uDavide, amisele uYehova isibingelelo esandeni sikaOrnan umYebhusi.
19 Wenyuka uDavide ngelizwi likaGadi, awalithethayo egameni likaYehova.
20 Wathi guququ uOrnan, wasibona isithunywa; oonyana bakhe abane ababenaye bazimela; ke uOrnan wayebhula ingqolowa.
21 Xa uDavide wayesiza kuOrnan, uOrnan wabheka wabona uDavide, waphuma esandeni, waqubuda kuDavide, ebhekise ubuso bakhe emhlabeni.
22 Wathi uDavide kuOrnan, Ndinike le ndawo yesanda, ndimakhele uYehova khona isibingelo; wondinika ngenani elizeleyo, sithintelwe isibetho ebantwini.
23 Wathi uOrnan kuDavide, Yithabathele kuwe, inkosi yam ukumkani yenze okulungileyo emehlweni ayo; khangela, ndikunika iinkomo ezi ukuba zibe ngamadini anyukayo, nempahla yokubhula ibe ziinkuni, nengqolowa ukuba ibe ngumnikelo wokudla; ndikunika konke oko.
24 Wathi ukumkani uDavide kuOrnan, Hayi; ndiya kusithenga ngexabiso elizalisekileyo; ngokuba andiyi kumthabathela nto iyeyakho uYehova, ndinyuse amadini anyukayo endiwazuze ngelize.
25 UDavide wamnika uOrnan ngaloo ndawo iishekele zegolide ezibunzima bumakhulu mathandathu.
26 Wakhela apho ke uDavide isibingelelo kuYehova, wanyusa amadini anyukayo nemibingelelo yoxolo, wanqula uYehova; waza yena wamphendula ngomlilo ovela ezulwini, phezu kwesibingelelo sedini elinyukayo.
27 Wathetha uYehova kwisithunywa, salibuyisela esingxobeni ikrele laso.
28 Ngelo xesha, akubona uDavide ukuba uYehova umphendule esandeni sikaOrnan umYebhusi, wamana ebingelela khona.
29 Ke umnquba kaYehova, awa wenzayo uMoses entlango, nesibingelelo sedini elinyukayo, bezisesigangeni eGibheyon ngelo xesha.
30 UDavide ubengenakuya phambi kwawo amquqele uThixo; ngokuba ubesoyika ikrele lesithunywa sikaYehova.

8 Ke lafika kum ilizwi likaYehova, lisithi, Uphalaze igazi lalininzi, wenza iimfazwe ezinkulu; akuyi kulakhela ndlu igama lam, ngokuba uphalaze igazi elininzi ehlabathini phambi kwam.
9 Yabona, uya kuzalelwa unyana; yena uya kuba yindoda yoxolo; ndiya kumphumza ezintshabeni zakhe zonke ngeenxa zonke; ngokuba liya kuba nguSolomon igama lakhe, ndiwanike uxolo nokuzola amaSirayeli ngeemini zakhe.
10 Nguye oya kulakhela igama lam indlu. Yena uya kuba ngunyana kum, mna ndibe nguyise kuye, ndiyizinzise itrone yobukumkani bakhe kumaSirayeli, kude kuse ephakadeni.
11 Kaloku, nyana wam, uYehova makabe nawe, ube nempumelelo, uyakhe indlu kaYehova uThixo wakho, njengoko akuthethileyo ngawe.
12 Kodwa ke uYehova makakunike ukuqiqa nokuqonda, akuwisele umthetho ngamaSirayeli, ukuba uwugcine umyalelo kaYehova uThixo wakho.
13 Uya kwandula ukuba nempumelelo, xa uthe wakugcina ukuyenza imimiselo namasiko, awathi uYehova wamwisela uMoses umthetho ngawo ngenxa yamaSirayeli. Yomelela ukhaliphe; musa ukoyika, ungaqhiphuki umbilini.
14 Uyabona, ngemigudu yam indlu kaYehova ndiyilungisele ikhulu lamawaka eetalente zegolide, nesigidi esinye seetalente zesilivere, nobhedu nesinyithi, into engenakulinganiselwa ukuba ninzi kwayo; ndilungise nemithi namatye; nawe ungongeza kwezozinto.
15 Unabo bebaninzi abasebenzi bomsebenzi, abaxholi neengcibi zamatye nezemithi, nabalumkileyo emisebenzini yonke.
16 Igolide, nesilivere, nobhedu, nesinyithi, yinto engenakubalwa. Suk’ ume, wenze, uYehova abe nawe.
17 UDavide wabawisela umthetho bonke abathetheli bakwaSirayeli, ukuba bamncede uSolomon unyana wakhe, wathi,
18 Akanani yini na uYehova uThixo wenu, waniphumza ngeenxa zonke? Ngokuba wabanikela esandleni sam abemi belizwe eli; loyiswa ilizwe eli phambi koYehova, naphambi kwabantu bakhe.
19 Ke ngoko zinikeleni iintliziyo zenu nemiphefumlo yenu ekumquqeleni uYehova uThixo wenu; sukani nime, niyakhe ingcwele kaYehova uThixo, ningenise ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova, neempahla ezingcwele zikaThixo, endlwini leyo iya kwakhelwa igama likaYehova.

32 UYonatan, uyisekazi kaDavide, ube ngumphakathi, eyindoda enokuqonda, engumbhali yena. UYehiyeli unyana kaHakemon ubenoonyana bokumkani.
33 UAhitofele ubengumphakathi wokumkani. UHushayi umArki ubelikholwane lokumkani.
34 Emveni koAhitofele ibinguYehoyada unyana kaBhenaya, noAbhiyatare. Umthetheli-mkhosi wokumkani ibinguYowabhi.




Isahluko 28

1 UDavide wababizela ndawonye bonke abathetheli bamaSirayeli, abathetheli bezizwe nabathetheli bamaqela ngamaqela abalungiselela ukumkani nabathetheli-mawaka nabathetheli-makhulu, namagosa empahla yonke, nabemfuyo yokumkani neyoonyana bakhe, kunye nababusi namagorha, nento yonke eligorha elinobukroti, ukuba beze eYerusalem.
2 Wesuka wema ngeenyawo uDavide ukumkani, wathi: Ndiphulaphuleni, bazalwana bam, bantu bam. Mna, kwaye kusentliziyweni yam ukuyakhela indlu yokuhlala ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova, isihlalo seenyawo zikaThixo wethu, ndalungisela ukwakha;
3 koko uThixo wathi kum, Uze ungalakheli ndlu igama lam, ngokuba uyindoda yemfazwe, uphalaze igazi elininzi.
4 Ke wandinyula uYehova, uThixo kaSirayeli, endlwini yonke kabawo, ukuba ndibe ngukumkani kumaSirayeli ngonaphakade; ngokuba unyule uYuda ukuba abe yinganga, endlwini kaYuda unyule indlu kabawo, koonyana bakabawo ukholwe ndim, ukuba andenze ukumkani kumaSirayeli onke.
5 Nakoonyana bam bonke (ngokuba undinike oonyana abaninzi uYehova), unyule uSolomon unyana wam, ukuba ahlale etroneni yobukumkani bukaYehova kumaSirayeli.
6 Wathi kum, USolomon, unyana wakho, nguye oya kwakha indlu yam neentendelezo zam; ngokuba ndizinyulele yena ukuba abe ngunyana kum, ndibe nguyise kuye mna;
7 ndibuzinzise ubukumkani bakhe kude kuse ephakadeni, ukuba uthe waqinisela ukuyenza imithetho yam namasiko am, njengoko kunjalo namhla.
8 Ngoko ke ndiyaniyala emehlweni amaSirayeli onke, ibandla likaYehova, nasezindlebeni zoThixo wethu: gcinani niquqele kuyo yonke imithetho kaYehova uThixo wenu, ukuze nilime eli lizwe lihle, nilishiye libe lilifa koonyana benu emva kwenu, kude kuse ephakadeni.
9 Ke wena Solomon, nyana wam, uze umazi uThixo kayihlo, umkhonze ngentliziyo epheleleyo, nangomphefumlo ovumayo; ngokuba uYehova uyazingxoka zonke iintliziyo, akuqonde konke ukuyila kweengcinga zabantu. Ukuba uthe wamfuna, wofunyanwa nguwe; ukuba uthe wamshiya, wokulahla mpela.
10 Uze ulumke ke; ngokuba uYehova ukunyule ukuba wakhe indlu ibe yeyengcwele. Yomelela uyenze.
11 UDavide wamnika uSolomon unyana wakhe isilinganiso sevaranda, nesezindlu zayo, nesoovimba bayo, nesamagumbi ayo aphezulu, nesamagumbi ayo aphakathi, nesendlu yokucamagusha;
12 nesilinganiso seento zonke abenazo engcingeni yakhe: eseentendelezo zendlu kaYehova, nesamagumbi onke ngeenxa zonke, nesamagumbi obuncwane bendlu kaThixo, awobuncwane bezinto ezingcwele;
13 nesamaqela ababingeleli nabaLevi, nesomsebenzi wonke wenkonzo yendlu kaYehova, neseempahla zonke zenkonzo yendlu kaYehova;
14 nesezinto zegolide, ngokobunzima begolide yeempahla zonke zeenkonzo ngeenkonzo; neseempahla zonke zesilivere, ngokobunzima beempahla zonke zeenkonzo ngeenkonzo;
15 nobunzima beziphatho zezibane zegolide, nobezibane zazo zegolide, ngokobunzima besiphatho ngesiphatho, nobezibane zazo; nobeziphatho zesilivere ngokobunzima besiphatho, nobezibane zazo, ngokwenkonzo yesiphatho ngesiphatho sezibane;
16 negolide ngokobunzima beetafile zokucwangcisa izonka, betafile ngetafile, nesilivere yeetafile zesilivere.
17 Wamnika nesilinganiso seefolokhwe, nesezitya zokutshiza, neseendebe zegolide ecocekileyo; neseendebe zegolide, ngokobunzima bendebe ngendebe neseendebe zesilivere ngokobunzima bendebe ngendebe;
18 nesesibingelelo sesiqhumiselo segolide ehluziweyo, ngokobunzima; nesilinganiso senqwelo, seekerubhi zegolide, ezolula amaphiko azo, zisithelisa ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova.
19 Yonke loo nto, watsho uDavide, yonke imisebenzi yokulinganisa undiqondisile ngokubhala okuvela esandleni sikaYehova, seza phezu kwam.
20 Wathi uDavide kuSolomon unyana wakhe, Yomelela ukhaliphe, wenze. Musa ukoyika, musa ukuqhiphuka umbilini; ngokuba uYehova uThixo, uThixo wam, unawe; akayi kukuyekela, akayi kukushiya, ude uwugqibe wonke umsebenzi wenkonzo yendlu kaYehova.
21 Nanga ke amaqela ababingeleli, nawabaLevi bomsebenzi wonke wendlu kaThixo. Banawe kuwo wonke umsebenzi, bonke abaya kubunika ngokuqhutywa yintliziyo ubulumko bomsebenzi wonke; nabathetheli nabantu bonke bowaphulaphula amazwi akho onke.




Isahluko 29

1 Wathi uDavide ukumkani kwibandla lonke, USolomon unyana wam, okuphela konyuliweyo nguThixo, mncinane, uthambile; ke umsebenzi mkhulu, ngokuba ibhotwe eli asilelomntu, lelikaYehova uThixo.
2 Ke, ngamandla am onke indlu kaThixo wam ndiyilungisele igolide yezinto zegolide, isilivere yezesilivere, ubhedu lwezobhedu, isinyithi sezesinyithi, imithi yezemithi, namatye ebherilo, nafakwayo, namatye okuhombisa, naziimfakamfele, namatye onke anqabileyo, namatye emarmore emhlophe, into eninzi.
3 Kananjalo ekubeni ilikholo kum indlu kaThixo wam, ndinenqobo yegolide nesilivere, endiyimisele indlu kaThixo wam, engaphandle kwayo yonke endiyilungisele indlu engcwele;
4 amawaka amathathu eetalente zegolide yasegolideni yakwaOfire, amawaka asixhenxe eetalente zesilivere ehluziweyo yokwaleka iindonga zezindlu;
5 ukuba ibe yeye zinto ngezinto zegolide, ibe yeyezinto ngezinto zesilivere, ibe yeyemisebenzi yonke yesandla seengcibi. Ngubani na ke oqhutywa yintliziyo ukuzimisela namhla kuYehova?
6 Banikela ke ngokuqhutywa yintliziyo abathetheli bezindlu zooyise, nabathetheli bezizwe zakwaSirayeli, nabathetheli bamawaka nabamakhulu, naba thetheli bomsebenzi wokumkani.
7 Banikela kwinkozo yendlu kaThixo igolide yaziitalente ezingamawaka amahlanu needarike ezilishumi lamawaka; nesilivere yaziitalente ezingamawaka alishumi, nobhedu lwaziitalente ezingamawaka alishumi elinesibhozo, nesinyithi saziitalente ezingamawaka alikhulu.
8 Abo ke, kwafumaneka kubo amatye anqabileyo, bawanikela ebuncwaneni bendlu kaYehova, esandleni sikaYehiyeli umGershom.
9 Bakuvuyela abantu ukunikela kwabo ngokuqhutywa yintliziyo; ngokuba banikela ngokuqhutywa yintliziyo ephelelisileyo kuYehova. Kananjalo uDavide ukumkani wavuya ngovuyo olukhulu.
10 UDavide wambonga uYehova phambi kwebandla lonke; wathi uDavide, Mawubongwe wena, Yehova, Thixo kaSirayeli, ubawo wethu, kususela kwaphakade kude kuse ephakadeni.
11 Bobakho, Yehova, ubukhulu, namandla, nozuko, noloyiso, nendili. Ewe, konke okusezulwini nokusehlabathini kokwakho; bobakho, Yehova, ubukumkani; uphakamile wayintloko yeento zonke.
12 Ubutyebi nozuko luvela kuwe, ulawula zonke izinto; asesandleni sakho amandla nobugorha; kusesandleni sakho ukukhulisa nokomeleza zonke izinto.
13 Ke ngoko, Thixo wethu, sinokubulela kuwe, sidumise igama lakho elibekekileyo.
14 Ngokuba ndingubani na mna, bangoobani na abantu bam, ukuba side sibe namandla okunika ngokuqhutywa yintliziyo njengoku? Ngokuba zivela kuwe zonke izinto; sikunika okuvele esandleni sakho.
15 Ngokuba singabaphambukeli phambi kwakho, silundwendwe njengoobawo bethu bonke; injengesithunzi imihla yethu ehlabathini apha, kungekho themba lakuhlala.
16 Yehova Thixo wethu, yonke le ngxokolo, siyilungisele ukulakhela indlu igama lakho elingcwele, ivela esandleni sakho, yeyakho yonke.
17 Ndiyazi, Thixo wam, ukuba uyayicikida intliziyo; ukholiswa kokuthe tye. Mna ke, ekuthini tye kwentliziyo yam, ndizinike ngokuqhutywa yintliziyo zonke ezi zinto. Kaloku abantu bakho aba bakhoyo apha, ndibone ngovuyo benikela kuwe ngokuqhutywa yintliziyo.
18 Yehova, Thixo ka-Abraham, noIsake, noSirayeli, oobawo bethu, kugcine ngonaphakade oko ekuyileni kweengcinga zeentliziyo zabantu bakho, uyibhekise kuwe intliziyo yabo;
19 uSolomon unyana wam umnike intliziyo ephelelisileyo, yokugcina imithetho yakho, nezingqino zakho, nemimiselo yakho, ayenze yonke, alakhe eli bhotwe ndililungiseleleyo.
20 Wathi uDavide kwibandla lonke, Khanibonge uYehova uThixo wethu. Labonga ke ibandla lonke uYehova uThixo wooyise, bathoba, baqubuda kuYehova nakukumkani.
21 Babingelela kuYehova imibingelelo, banyusa amadini anyukayo kuYehova kwakusa ngengomso, iinkunzi ezintsha zeenkomo zaliwaka, iinkunzi zeegusha zaliwaka, iimvana zaliwaka, neminikelo yawo ethululwayo, nemibingelelo yoxolo emininzi, ngenxa yamaSirayeli onke.
22 Badla basela ngaloo mini phambi koYehova ngovuyo olukhulu. USolomon unyana kaDavide bamenza ukumkani ngokwesibini; bamthambisa phambi koYehova ukuba abe yinganga, noTsadoki abe ngumbingeleli.
23 Wahlala ke uSolomon etroneni kaYehova, engukumkani esikhundleni sikaDavide uyise, wanempumelelo; ambeka onke amaSirayeli.
24 Bonke abathetheli, namagorha, kwanoonyana bonke bokumkani uDavide, basilulamela isandla sikaSolomon ukumkani.
25 UYehova wamenza mkulu uSolomon, wamphakamisa emehlweni amaSirayeli onke, wamnika indili yobukumkani engabangakho kookumkani bonke bamaSirayeli ababengaphambi kwakhe.
26 Ke kaloku uDavide, unyana kaYese, waye engukumkani wamaSirayeli onke.
27 Imihla awaye engukumkani kumaSirayeli ibiyiminyaka emashumi mane; eHebron wayengukumkani iminyaka esixhenxe, eYerusalem wayengukumkani iminyaka emashumi mathathu anamithathu.
28 Wafa ke, eyingwevu enkulu, ehambisekile ebudaleni, enobutyebi nozuko; uSolomon, unyana wakhe, waba ngukumkani esikhundleni sakhe.
29 Izinto zikaDavide ukumkani, ezokuqala nezokuphela, nanzo zibhaliwe emicimbini kaSamuweli imboni, nasemicimbini kaNatan umprofeti, nasemicimbini kaGadi imboni;
30 kunye nobukumkani bakhe bonke, nobugorha bakhe, nezinto ezamhlelayo yena, namaSirayeli, nezikumkani zonke zamazwe.
