1 Ibali likaNehemiya unyana kaHakaliya. Kwathi ngenyanga enguKislevu, ngomnyaka wamashumi amabini, ndakubona ukuba ndiseShushan komkhulu,
2 kwafika uHanani, omnye wakubazalwana bam, enamadoda avela kwaYuda. Ndababuza iindaba zamaYuda, amasalela asindileyo ekuthinjweni, nezeYerusalem.
3 Bathi kum, Amaqongqolo asele ekuthinjweni, kwaYuda, asebubini obukhulu, nasekungcikivweni; nodonga lweYerusalem luqhekekile, namasango ayo atshe ngumlilo.
4 Kwathi ndakuweva la mazwi, ndahlala phantsi, ndalila, ndenza isijwili iintsuku, ndazila ukudla, ndathandaza phambi koThixo wamazulu,
5 ndathi, Camagu, Yehova, Thixo wamazulu, Thixo omkhulu, owoyikekayo, obagcinelayo umnqophiso nenceba abamthandayo, abayigcinayo imithetho yakhe.
6 Indlebe yakho mayikhe ibazeke, namehlo akho makhe avuleke, ukuze uwuphulaphule umthandazo womkhonzi wakho, endiwuthandazayo phambi kwakho ngoku, imini nobusuku, ngenxa yoonyana bakaSirayeli, abakhonzi bakho; nokuzixela kwam izono zoonyana bakaSirayeli, esone ngazo kuwe, Mna nendlu kabawo sonile;
7 sonakalisile, senza ububi ngakuwe. Asiyigcinanga imithetho, nemimiselo, namasiko, obumwisele umthetho ngawo uMoses umkhonzi wakho.
8 Khawulikhumbule ilizwi owamwisela umthetho ngalo uMoses umkhonzi wakho, elithi, Ukuba nina nithe nenza ubumenemene, ndonichithachithela ezizweni;
9 ke ukuba nithe nabuyela kum, nayigcina imithetho yam, nayenza, nokuba kuthe kwabakho kuni abagxothelwe ekupheleni kwezulu; ndobabutha nalapho, ndibazise kuloo ndawo ndiyinyulele ukulibeka kuyo igama lam.
10 Aba ke ngabakhonzi bakho, nabantu bakho, owabakhulula ngamandla akho amakhulu, nangesandla sakho esithe nkqi.
11 Camagu, Nkosi yam, indlebe yakho mayikhe ibazelwe umthandazo womkhonzi wakho, nomthandazo wabakhonzi bakho, abathanda ukoyika igama lakho. Khawumphumelelise umkhonzi wakho namhla, umfumanise imfesane phambi kwale ndoda. Ke mna ndibe ndingumngcamli kukumkani.

1 Kwathi ngenyanga enguNisan, ngomnyaka wamashumi amabini ka-Artashashta ukumkani, yabakho iwayini phambi kwakhe, ndayithabatha iwayini leyo, ndayinika ukumkani. Ke ndibe ndingazanga ndibonakale ndithe khunubembe phambi kwakhe.
2 Wathi ukumkani kum, Kungani na ukuba ubuso bakho bube nje, ukuba bubi, ungafi nje? Le nto bububi bentliziyo, asinto yimbi. Ndoyika ke kakhulu kunene.
3 Ndathi kukumkani, Ukumkani makadle ubomi ngonaphakade. Bebungathini na ukuba ubuso bam bungabi bubi, ulinxuwa nje umzi lowa, indawo yamangcwaba oobawo, amasango awo etshiswe ngomlilo?
4 Wathi ukumkani kum, Ufuna ntoni na ke? Ndathandaza ke kuThixo wamazulu.
5 Ndathi kukumkani, Ukuba kuthe kwalunga kukumkani, ukuba umkhonzi wakho lo uthe walungisa phambi kwakho, ndinga ungandithuma kwaYuda, kuwo umzi wamangcwaba oobawo, ndiwakhe.
6 Wathi ukumkani kum (ukumkanikazi ehleli ngasecaleni lakhe), Uhambo lwakho loba lolwexesha elingakanani na? Wobuya nini na? Kwalunga ke kukumkani ukundithuma, ndakuba ndimmisele ixesha.
7 Ndathi kukumkani, Ukuba kuthe kwalunga kukumkani, mandinikwe incwadi eya kumabamba aphesheya koMlambo, andiyeke ndidlule ndide ndiye kufika kwaYuda;
8 nencwadi eya kuAsafu, umgcini wehlathi lokumkani, ukuba andinike imithi yemiqadi yamasango enqaba elunge kwindlu, neyodonga lomzi, neyendlu endiya kuhlala kuyo. Wandinika ke ukumkani ngokwesandla sikaThixo esilungileyo esiphezu kwam.
9 Ndafika kumabamba anganeno koMlambo, ndawanika iincwadi zokumkani. Ke kaloku ukumkani ubendikhuphele nam abathetheli bempi, nabamahashe.
10 Bathi ke ooSanebhalati waseHoron, noTobhiya umkhonzi, umAmon, bakuyiva loo nto, kwaba kubi kubo ngobubi obukhulu, ukuba kufike ununtu ofuna ukuba kulunge koonyana bakaSirayeli.
11 Ndafika ke eYerusalem, ndaba neentsuku zantathu khona.
12 Ndesuka ebusuku, mna ndinamadoda ambalwa. Andixelelanga mntu into abeyingenise entliziyweni yam uThixo wam, ukuba ndiyenzele iYerusalem. Ndibe ndingenamaqegu, ibilelo lodwa bendikhwele kulo.
13 Ndaphuma ke ebusuku ngesango lomfula, ndasinga emthonjeni wenamba, nasesangweni lezala, ndilolonga iindonga zeYerusalem ezibe ziqhekekile, namasango ayo abetshiswe ngomlilo.
14 Ndagqithela esangweni lomthombo, nasechibini lokumkani; akwabakho ndawo yokuba lithubeleze kuyo iqegu endandikhwele kulo.
15 Ndakhweza ke isihlambo ngobusuku, ndilolonga udonga, ndabuya ndangena ngesango lomfula; ndabuya ke.
16 Ke kaloku abaphathi babengazi apho ndandiye khona, nento endandiye kuyenza; bendingekawaxeleli amaYuda, nababingeleli, nabanumzana, nabaphathi, nabanye abenza umsebenzi.
17 Ndathi kubo, Niyabubona ububi esikubo, ukuba iYerusalem ilinxuwa, namasango ayo atshiswe ngomlilo; yizani, sakhe udonga lweYerusalem, singabi saba lungcikivo.
18 Ndabaxelela ukulunga kwesandla soThixo wam phezu kwam, namazwi okumkani awawathethayo kum. Bathi, Masisuke sakhe. Bazomeleza izandla zabo ukuwenza lo msebenzi ulungileyo.
19 Bathi ke ooSanebhalati waseHoron, noTobhiya umkhonzi, umAmon, noGeshem umArabhi, bakuyiva loo nto, basigculela, basidela, bathi, Yintoni na le nto niyenzayo? Niya kugwilika na kukumkani?
20 Ndabaphendula, ndathi kubo, UThixo wamazulu nguye oya kusiphumelelisa; thina bakhonzi bakhe siya kusuka sakhe; ke nina aninasabelo nalungelo nasikhumbuzo eYerusalem.

1 Kwathi, akuva uSanebhalati ukuba siyalwakha udonga, wasuka wavutha umsindo wakhe, waqumba kunene, wawangcikiva amaYuda.
2 Wathetha phambi kwabazalwana bakhe nempi yakwaSamari, wathi, Enza ntoni na la maYuda antshwenyileyo? ozinqabisa na? obingelela na? ogqiba namhla na? owavusa na amatye kwezi mfumba zothuli, etshile nje?
3 Ke uTobhiya umAmon, engakuye, wathi, Nale nto ayakhayo, kungathi kunyuke impungutye le, iluqhekeze udonga lwawo lwamatye.
4 Yiva, Thixo wethu; ngokuba sideliwe, ukubuyisele ezintlokweni zabo ukungcikiva kwabo, ubanikele ekuphangweni elizweni labathinjwa.
5 Musa ukubuselela ubugwenxa babo; musa ukusicima isono sabo phambi kwakho; ngokuba bakuqumbisile phambi kwabakhi.
6 Salwakha ke udonga, lwadityaniswa lonke udonga, kwesa esiqingatheni sokuphakama kwalo. Abantu babenentliziyo yokusebenza.
7 Kwathi, akuva uSanebhalati, noTobhiya, nama-Arabhi, nama-Amon, nama-Ashdode, ukuba ziyenyuswa iindonga zeYerusalem; ukuba ziqaliwe, ziyavingcwa iintanda: wavutha umsindo wabo kunene.
8 Bacebisana kunye bonke bephela, ukuba beze kulwa neYerusalem, bayonakalise.
9 Sathandaza kuThixo wethu, samisa abokulinda imini nobusuku ngenxa yabo.
10 Athi amaYuda, Amandla abathwali bemithwalo ayetha, inkunkuma ininzi; thina asinakulwakha udonga.
11 Ababandezeli bethu abo babesithi, Akayi kwazi, akayi kubona, side singene phakathi kwawo, siwabulale, siwumise umsebenzi.
12 Kwathi, akuza amaYuda abehleli emacaleni abo, athetha kuthi izihlandlo zalishumi, ephuma ezindaweni zonke, esithi, Buyelani kuthi.
13 Ndesuka, ndamisa ezindaweni ezisezantsi emva kodonga, ezindaweni ezibalelelwa lilanga, ndamisa abantu ngokwemizalwane, benamakrele abo, nezikhali zabo, nezaphetha zabo.
14 Ndakhangela, ndasuka ndathi kubanumzana, nakubaphathi, nakwabanye abantu, Musani ukuboyika; khumbulani iNkosi enkulu eyoyikekayo, nilwele abazalwana benu, noonyana benu, neentombi zenu, nabafazi benu, nezindlu zenu.
15 Kwathi, zakuva iintshaba zethu ukuba siyazi thina, nokuba uThixo ulitshitshisile iqhinga lazo, sabuyela sonke siphela eludongeni, elowo emsebenzini wakhe.
16 Kwathi, ukususela kuloo mini, esinye isiqingatha samadodana akwam sasebenza emsebenzini, esinye isiqingatha saphatha izikhali, neengweletshetshe, izaphetha, neengubo zentsimbi; kananjalo abaphathi babeyixhasile yonke indlu kaYuda.
17 Ke aba babesakha eludongeni, nabathwala imithwalo, babethwala ngesinye isandla esibe sisebenza emsebenzini, baphathe izikhali ngesinye;
18 nabakhi babesakha, benxibe elowo ikrele lakhe esinqeni sakhe. Ovuthela isigodlo ubesecaleni lam.
19 Ndathi kubanumzana, nakubaphathi, nakwabanye abantu, Umsebenzi lo mkhulu, ubanzi; thina sithe saa eludongeni, omnye ekude komnye.
20 Endaweni enithe neva ilizwi lesigodlo, nobuthelana kuyo kum; uThixo wosilwela.
21 Sasisebenza emsebenzini, isiqingatha sawo siphethe izikhali, siqalela ekuphumeni kwesifingo, sizise ekuveleni kweenkwenkwezi.
22 Kananjalo ndathi ngelo xesha ebantwini, Elowo nendodana yakwakhe makalale phakathi eYerusalem ebusuku, ukuze babe ngabalindi kuthi ebusuku, emini babe semsebenzini.
23 Ke mna, nabazalwana bam, namadodana akwam, namadoda alindayo abendilandela, sibe singazikhululi iingubo zethu. Elowo ebenekrele lakhe kwesokunene.

1 Ke kaloku kwabakho ukukhala okukhulu kwabantu nabafazi babo ngabazalwana babo amaYuda.
2 Bekukho ababesithi, Sibaninzi thina, oonyana bethu, neentombi zethu; masamkele ingqolowa, ukuze sidle, siphile.
3 Bekukho nababesithi, Amasimi ethu, nezidiliya zethu, nezindlu zethu, sibambisile ngazo; masamkele ingqolowa ngenxa yendlala.
4 Bekukho nababesithi, Siboleke imali yokurhafela ukumkani, ngokubambisa ngamasimi ethu nezidiliya zethu.
5 Kaloku inyama yethu ikwanjengenyama yabazalwana bethu, noonyana bethu bakwanjengoonyana babo; ukanti siyabanyanzela oonyana bethu neentombi zethu, ukuba babe ngamakhoboka; ezintombini zethu kukho nesezinyanzelwe; akukho mandla esandleni sethu, amasimi ethu nezidiliya zethu zizezabanye nje.
6 Wavutha ke kakhulu umsindo wam, ndakukuva ukukhala kwabo, naloo mazwi.
7 Ndafuna iqhinga entliziyweni yam, ndabambana nabanumzana nabaphathi, ndathi kubo, Niyadlana ngokuboleka. Ndabamisela ibandla elikhulu,
8 ndathi kubo, Thina, ngangoko sinako, sibathengile sabakhulula abazalwana bethu amaYuda, ebe kuthengiswe ngabo kwiintlanga. Niya kusuka ke nina nithengise na ngabazalwana benu, ukuze bathengise ngeziqu zabo kuthi? Bathi cwaka, abafumana lizwi lakuphendula.
9 Ndathi, Ayilungile le nto niyenzayo; nibe ningafanele na ukuhamba ekoyikeni uThixo wethu, ngenxa yokungcikiva kweentlanga eziziintshaba zethu?
10 Kananjalo mna, abazalwana bam, namadodana akwam, sibaboleke imali nengqolowa; makhe sikuyeke oku kuboleka ngokubambisa.
11 Khanibabuyisele kwanamhlanje amasimi abo, nezidiliya zabo, nezinquma zabo, nezindlu zabo; nesekhulu isahlulo semali, nesengqolowa, nesewayini entsha, neseoli, eniyibize kubo iyinzuzo.
12 Bathi, Siya kusibuyisa, singabizi nto kubo; siya kwenza njengoko utshoyo. Ndabiza ababingeleli, ndabafungisa ukuba benze ngokwelo lizwi.
13 Kananjalo ndavuthulula isondo lengubo yam, ndathi, UThixo makenjenje ukubavuthulula ezindlwini zabo, nasekuxelengeni kwabo, bonke abantu abangayi kulimisa elo lizwi; mabenjiwe nje ukuvuthululwa, balambathe. Lathi lonke ibandla, Amen; bamdumisa uYehova. Benza ke abantu ngokwelo lizwi.
14 Kananjalo kususela kumhla endamiselwa ukuba ndibe libamba labo ezweni lakwaYuda, ndithabathela kumnyaka wamashumi amabini, ndezisa kumnyaka wamashumi amathathu anamibini ka-Artashashta ukumkani, iyiminyaka elishumi elinamibini, mna nabazalwana bam asidlanga kudla kwabamba.
15 Ke amabamba okuqala abephambi kwam enza kwaba nzima ebantwini, athabatha kubo isonka newayini; emveni koko athabatha amashumi amane eeshekele zesilivere; kananjalo amadodana akwawo enza ngegunya ebantwini. Ke mna andenjanga njalo, ngokoyika uThixo.
16 Kananjalo ndabamba emsebenzini wolo donga; asithenganga masimi; onke amadodana akwam ayehlanganisene khona emsebenzini.
17 Ke amaYuda, abaphathi, amadoda alikhulu elinamanci mahlanu, kwanawezayo kuthi, evela ezintlangeni ezisijikelezileyo, abe esetafileni yam.
18 Into ebe ilungiselelwa imini enye yaba yinkomo, neegusha ezikhethiweyo ezintandathu, neentaka, bekusenzelwa mna; neentlobo zonke ezininzi zewayini ngeentsuku ezilishumi; kuloo nto andibizanga kudla kwabamba, ngokuba yayinzima inkonzo phezu kwaba bantu.
19 Ndikhumbulele okulungileyo, Thixo wam, ngako konke endikwenzele aba bantu.

1 Kwathi, kwakuvakala kuSanebhalati, nakuTobhiya, nakuGeshem umArabhi, nakwezinye iintshaba zethu, ukuba ndilwakhile udonga, akwasala luthanda kulo (nakuba kwada kwalelo xesha ndingazimisanga iingcango emasangweni),
2 bathumela kum uSanebhalati noGeshem, besithi, Yiza, sihlangane komnye wemizana esesihlanjeni seOno. Babecinga ukundenza into embi.
3 Ndathumela abathunywa kubo, ndathi, Ndenza umsebenzi omkhulu, andinakuhla; yini na ukuba ume umsebenzi lo, ngokuthi ndiwuyeke, ndihle ndize kuni?
4 Bathumela kum ngokunjalo izihlandlo zazine, ndabaphendula kwangelo lizwi.
5 USanebhalati wathumela ngokunjalo kum indodana yakwakhe, isihlandlo sesihlanu, inencwadi evulekileyo esandleni sayo;
6 kubhalwe kuyo kwathiwa, Kuvakele ezintlangeni, utsho noGashemu ukuthi, Wena namaYuda nicinga ukugwilika; ulwakha ngenxa yoko udonga olo; unqwenele ukuba ngukumkani wawo, ngokwaloo mazwi.
7 Kananjalo umise abaprofeti bokumemeza ngawe eYerusalem, besithi, Kumkani wamaYuda! Ngoko ke kuya kuvakala kukumkani ngokwaloo mazwi; yiza ke ngoko, sicebisane.
8 Ndathumela kuye, ndathi, Akukho nto injengaleyo uyithethayo, iyiloo nto uyicamngce entliziyweni yakho.
9 Ngokuba bonke bephela bebesoyikisa, besithi, Izandla zawo ziya kuwuyeka lo msebenzi, ungenziwa. Ngoko, Thixo, zomeleze izandla zam.
10 Ndaya endlwini kaShemaya unyana kaDelaya, unyana kaMehetabheli, evalelwe; wathi, Masihlangane endlwini kaThixo, ngaphakathi kwetempile, sizivale iingcango zetempile leyo; ngokuba baza kukubulala; ebusuku baya kuza kukubulala.
11 Ndathi, Kubaleke indoda enjengam nje na? Yiyiphi na enjengam eya kungena etempileni isinde? Andiyi kungena.
12 Ndaqonda: O! AsinguThixo lo umthumileyo; isiprofeto esi usithethe ngam ngokuqeshwa nguSanebhalati noTobhiya.
13 Ubeqeshelwe ukuze ndoyike, ndenze loo nto, ndone; ndibe negama elibi kubo, ukuze bandingcikive.
14 Bakhumbule, Thixo wam, ooTobhiya noSanebhalati ngokwezo zenzo zabo, kwanoNowadiya umprofetikazi, nabanye abaprofeti ababendoyikisa.
15 Lwagqitywa udonga ngomhla wamashumi amabini anesihlanu kaEluli, ngemihla emashumi mahlanu anamibini.
16 Kwathi zakukuva oko iintshaba zethu zonke, zoyika zonke iintlanga ezisijikelezileyo, zetha amandla emehlweni azo, zazi ukuba kuvele kuThixo wethu ukwenziwa kwalo msebenzi.
17 Kananjalo ngaloo mihla, abanumzana bakwaYuda bazongeza iincwadi eziya kuTobhiya, nezikaTobhiya bezisiza kubo.
18 Ngokuba bebebaninzi kwaYuda ababemfungele; ngokuba ebengumyeni kwaShekaniya unyana ka-Ara; noYohanan unyana wakhe ubezeke intombi kaMeshulam unyana kaBherekiya.
19 Kananjalo ukulunga kwakhe babekuthetha phambi kwam, namazwi am bewasa kuye. UTobhiya wathumela iincwadi zokundoyikisa.

1 Ke kaloku kwathi, lwakwakhiwa udonga, ndazifaka iingcango; bamiswa abamasango, nabavumi, nabaLevi, ukuba bagcine umsebenzi wabo.
2 Ndamwisela umthetho uHanani umzalwana wam, noHananiya umphathi wenqaba, ngeYerusalem; ngokuba ebeyindoda enyanisekileyo, emoyikayo uThixo ngaphezu kwabaninzi.
3 Ndathi kubo, Amasango aseYerusalem makangavulwa, lide lifudumale ilanga; bathi, besemi belinda, bazivale iingcango, bazitshixe; nimise abagcini abangabemi baseYerusalem, elowo abe selugcinweni lwakhe, elowo abe phambi kwendlu yakhe.

5 UThixo wam wangenisa entliziyweni yam, ukuba ndibabuthe abanumzana, nabaphathi, nabantu, ukuba ndibabhalele emilibeni yokuzalwa. Ndafumana incwadi yemilibo yokuzalwa kwabo babenyuke ekuqaleni; ndafumana kubhaliwe khona kwathiwa:
6 Ngabo aba oonyana belizwe lakwaYuda, abanyukayo kwabathinjiweyo basemfudusweni, awayebafudusile uNebhukadenetsare ukumkani waseBhabheli, ababuyela eYerusalem nakwaYuda, elowo wabuyela emzini wakowabo,
7 abeza noZerubhabheli, noYeshuwa, noNehemiya, noAzariya, noRahamiya, noNahamani, noMordekayi, noBhileshan, noMisperete, noBhigevayi, noNehum, noBhahana. Inani lamadoda, abantu bakwaSirayeli, yayileli:

1 Bahlangana bonke abantu njengamntu mnye endaweni yembutho ephambi kwesango lamanzi, bathi kuUEzra umbhali, makazise incwadi yomyalelo kaMoses, awawumiselayo uYehova kumaSirayeli.
2 UUEzra umbingeleli wawuzisa umyalelo phambi kwebandla elo, lithabathele kwindoda lesa kumfazi, nakubo bonke abanokuva baqonde, ngomhla wokuqala wenyanga yesixhenxe.
3 Walesa kuwo phambi kwendawo yembutho ephambi kwesango lamanzi, eqale ekuseni kwada kwaba semini enkulu, phambi kwamadoda nabafazi, nabasebenokuqonda; iindlebe zabantu bonke zaphulaphula loo ncwadi yomyalelo.
4 Wema ke uUEzra umbhali esikhwelweni somthi, ababesenzele loo nto. Kwema ngakuye uMatitiya, noShema, noAnaya, noUriya, noHilekiya, noMahaseya, ngasekunene kwakhe; ngasekholo yanguPedaya, noMishayeli, noMalekiya, noHashum, noHashebhadana, noZekariya, noMeshulam.
5 UUEzra wayivula incwadi emehlweni abantu bonke (ngokuba wayebaphakamele abantu bonke) akuyivula, bema abantu bonke.
6 UUEzra wambonga uYehova, uThixo omkhulu. Baphendula bonke abantu, bathi, Amen, amen, bephakamisa izandla zabo. Bathoba, baqubuda kuYehova, bebhekise ubuso babo emhlabeni.
7 OoYeshuwa, noBhani noSherebhiya, noYamin, noAkubhi, noShabhetayi, noHodiya, noMahaseya, noKelita, noAzariya, noYozabhadi, noHanan, noPelaya, nabaLevi, babaqondisa abantu umyalelo, abantu bemi ezindaweni zabo.
8 Balesa encwadini, emyalelweni kaThixo, ngokucacileyo, beqononondisa; bakuqonda ke ukulesa oku.
9 Wathi uNehemiya oyirhuluneli, noUEzra umbingeleli, umbhali, nabaLevi abazondisa abantu, ebantwini bonke, Le mini ingcwele kuYehova uThixo wethu; musani ukwenza isijwili, musani ukulila. Ngokuba babelila bonke abantu, bakuweva amazwi omyalelo lowo.
10 Wathi kubo, Yiyani, nidle amanqatha, nisele izinto ezinencasa, nise isabelo kwabangalungiselwanga nto; ngokuba le mini ingcwele kwiNkosi yethu. Musani ukuba buhlungu; ngokuba uvuyo lukaYehova ligwiba lenu.
11 NabaLevi babebathuthuzela abantu bonke, besithi, Yithini tu; ngokuba le mini ingcwele; musani ukuba buhlungu.
12 Besuka bonke abantu, baya kudla, basela, bathuma izabelo, bavuya kakhulu: ngokuba bawaqonda amazwi ababewaxelelwa.
13 Ngomhla wesibini kwahlanganisana iintloko zezindlu zooyise zabantu bonke, nezababingeleli, nezabaLevi, zeza kuUEzra umbhali ukuwaqiqa amazwi omyalelo.
14 Bafumana kubhaliwe emyalelweni, awawumiselayo uYehova ngoMoses, ukuthi, oonyana bakaSirayeli mabahlale eminqubeni ngomthendeleko wenyanga yesixhenxe;
15 nokuthi mabavakalise, bahambise ilizwi emizini yabo yonke, naseYerusalem, lokuthi, Phumani niye ezintabeni, nize namahlamvu eminquma, namahlamvu eminquma yasendle, namahlamvu emimirtile, namahlamvu esundu, namahlamvu emithi ethe shinyi, ukuze kwenziwe iminquba ngoko kubhaliweyo.
16 Baphuma abantu, bawazisa, bazenzela iminquba, elowo phezu kwendlu yakhe, nasezintendelezweni zabo, nasezintendelezweni zendlu kaThixo, nasendaweni yembutho yesango lamanzi, nasendaweni yembutho yesango likaEfrayim.
17 Lonke ibandla elalibuye ekuthinjweni lenza iminquba, lahlala eminqubeni; ngokuba oonyana bakaSirayeli babengenzanga ngokunjalo kususela kwimihla kaYoshuwa unyana kaNun, kwada kwayiloo mini. Kwabakho ke uvuyo olukhulu kunene.
18 Kwaleswa encwadini yomyalelo kaThixo imihla ngemihla, kwathabathela kumhla wokuqala kwezisa kumhla wokugqibela. Benza umthendeleko imihla yasixhenxe; ngomhla wesibhozo yaba yingqungquthela ngokwesiko.

1 Ke kaloku ngomhla wamashumi amabini anesine waloo nyanga, bahlanganisana oonyana bakaSirayeli, bezila ukudla, beneengubo ezirhwexayo, bezigalele umhlaba.
2 Yazahlula imbewu kaSirayeli koonyana bonke bolunye uhlanga, bema bazixela izono zabo, nobugwenxa booyise.
3 Bema endaweni yabo, belesa encwadini yomyalelo kaYehova uThixo wabo, isahlulo sesine semini; esinye isahlulo sesine bexela izono zabo, bemnqula uYehova uThixo wabo.
4 Benyuka bema esikhwelweni sabaLevi ooYeshuwa noBhani, noKademiyeli, noShebhaniya, noBhuni, noSherebhiya, noBhani, noKenani; bamemeza ngezwi elikhulu kuYehova uThixo wabo.
5 Bathi abaLevi, ooYeshuwa, noKademiyeli, noBhani, noHashabheneya, noSherebhiya, noHodiya, noShebhaniya, noPetaya: Sukani nime. Bongani uYehova uThixo wenu, kususela kwaphakade kude kuse ephakadeni. Malibongwe igama lobuqaqawuli bakho, elikuphakameleyo konke ukubonga nokudumisa.
6 Wena unguYehova wedwa, wena wenza izulu, izulu lawo amazulu, nomkhosi wawo wonke, umhlaba nento yonke ephezu kwawo, iilwandle neento zonke ezikhona, uzidlisa ubomi zonke ezo zinto; umkhosi wamazulu uqubuda kuwe.
7 Wena unguYehova, uThixo owanyula uAbram, wamkhupha eUre yamaKaledi, wamthiya igama elinguAbraham.
8 Wayifumana intliziyo yakhe inyanisekile phambi kwakho, wenza naye umnqophiso wokulinika ilizwe lamaKanan, namaHeti, nama-Amori, namaPerizi, namaYebhusi, namaGirgashi, wokulinika imbewu yakhe; wawamisa ke amazwi akho, ngokuba ulilungisa.
9 Wazibona iintsizi zoobawo eYiputa, wakuva ukukhala kwabo eLwandle oluBomvu;
10 wenza imiqondiso nezimanga kuFaro, nakubakhonzi bakhe bonke, nakubantu bonke belizwe lakhe, ngokuba ubusazi ukuba baye bebakhukhumalele; wazenzela igama njengoko kunjalo nanamhla.
11 Walwahlula ulwandle phambi kwabo; bawela elwandle komile, abasukeli babo wabazulumbela ezinzulwini njengelitye emanzini anamandla.
12 Wabakhokela ngomqulu welifu emini, nangomqulu womlilo ebusuku, ukuba ubakhanyisele indlela ababehamba ngayo.
13 Wehla phezu kwentaba yeSinayi, wathetha nabo uvela emazulwini, wabanika amasiko athe tye, nemiyalelo eyinyaniso, nemimiselo, nemithetho elungileyo;
14 wabazisa isabatha yakho engcwele, wabamisela imithetho, nemimiselo, nomyalelo, ngesandla sikaMoses umkhonzi wakho.
15 Wabanika isonka sasezulwini ngenxa yokulamba kwabo, wabavelisela namanzi engxondorheni ngenxa yokunxanwa kwabo; wathi kubo, mabaye kulihlutha ilizwe, owabaphakamisela isandla sakho, ukuba wobanika lona.
16 Ke bona oobawo bakhukhumala, bazenza lukhuni iintamo zabo, abayiphulaphula imithetho yakho.
17 Abavuma ukuva, abayikhumbula imisebenzi yakho ebalulekileyo, owayenzayo kubo. Bazenza lukhuni iintamo zabo, bamisa iintloko, ukuba babuyele ebukhobokeni babo ngeenkani zabo; wena wathi, kuba unguThixo wokuxolela, ubabala, unemfesane, uzeka kade umsindo, umninzi ngenceba, akwabashiya.
18 Noko ke bazenzela ithole elingumfanekiso otyhidiweyo, bathi, Nguye lo uThixo wakho owakunyusayo eYiputa; bakugiba kakhulu.
19 Ke wena, ngeemfesane zakho ezinkulu, akubashiyanga entlango; umqulu welifu wokubakhokela ngendlela awumkanga kubo emini, nomqulu womlilo ebusuku wokubakhanyisela indlela ababamba ngayo.
20 Wabanika umoya wakho olungileyo, ukuba ubaqononondise; akuwuvimbanga umlomo wabo imana yakho, wabanika amanzi ngenxa yenxano labo.
21 Iminyaka emashumi mane wabafunzela entlango, abaswela nto; iingubo zabo azonakalanga bubudala, iinyawo zabo azidumbanga.
22 Wabanika izikumkani nezizwe, wabahlulahlula ngokwemida yabo; balihlutha ilizwe lakwaSihon, ilizwe lokumkani waseHeshbhon, kwanelizwe likaOgi ukumkani waseBhashan.
23 Wabandisa oonyana babo njengeenkwenkwezi zezulu; wabazisa kwelo zwe, wathi kooyise mabaze balihluthe.
24 Bangena ke oonyana abo, balihlutha ilizwe elo; wabathoba phambi kwabo abemi belizwe, amaKanan, wawanikela ezandleni zabo, ookumkani bawo nezizwe zelizwe elo, ukuba benze kuzo ngokuzithandela kwabo.
25 Bayithimba imizi enqatyisiweyo, nomhlaba otyebileyo; bahlutha izindlu zizele zizinto zonke ezintle, amaqula ambiweyo, nezidiliya, nezinquma, nemithi edliwayo yamininzi. Badla, bahlutha, batyeba, baziyolisa ngokulunga kwakho okukhulu.
26 Besuka baphika, bagwilika kuwe, umyalelo wakho bawuphosela emva komhlana wabo, bababulala abaprofeti bakho ababengqina kubo, ukuba bababuvisele kuwe; bakugiba kakhulu.
27 Wabanikela ezandleni zababandezeli babo, bababandezela. Ngexesha lokubandezelwa kwabo bakhala kuwe; wena weva usemazulwini, wabanika abasindisi ngokweemfesane zakho ezinkulu, babasindisa ezandleni zababandezeli babo.
28 Bakuba nokuphumla, babuya benza okubi phambi kwakho, wabashiya ezandleni zeentshaba zabo, zabanyathela. Babuya bakhala kuwe; wena weva usemazulwini, wabahlangula ngokweemfesane zakho amaxesha amaninzi.
29 Wangqina ngabo, ukuba ubabuyisele emyalelweni wakho; ke bona bakhukhumala, abayiphulaphula imithetho yakho; amasiko akho bona kuwo, awothi umntu owenzayo aphile ngawo; bamangala negxalaba, bazenza lukhuni iintamo zabo, abaphulaphula.
30 Wabathwala iminyaka emininzi, wangqina ngabo ngoMoya wakho, ngabaprofeti bakho; abakubekela ndlebe; wabanikela ke ezandleni zezizwe zamazwe.
31 Ke ngeemfesane zakho ezinkulu akubagqibanga kuphele, akubashiyanga; ngokuba unguThixo onobabalo, nemfesane.
32 Kaloku, Thixo wethu, Thixo omkhulu, oligorha, owoyikekayo, ogcina umnqophiso nenceba, mayingabi ncinane phambi kwakho yonke indiniso esiyifumeneyo thina, nookumkani bethu, nabathetheli bethu, nababingeleli bethu, nabaprofeti bethu, noobawo, nabantu bakho bonke, kususela kwimihla yookumkani baseAsiriya, kude kube yile mini.
33 Ulilungisa entweni yonke esifikeleyo; ngokuba wena wenze inyaniso, ke thina senze okungendawo.
34 Ookumkani bethu, nabathetheli bethu, nababingeleli bethu, noobawo, abawenzanga umyalelo wakho, abazibazanga iindlebe emithethweni yakho, nasezingqinweni zakho, owangqina ngazo ngabo.
35 Bona, ebukumkanini babo, ekulungeni kwakho okukhulu owabanikayo, ezweni elibanzi, elityebileyo, owabanikayo, abakukhonzanga, ababuyanga ezenzweni zabo ezibi.
36 Yabona, singabakhonzi namhla; nelizwe owalinika oobawo, ukuba sidle iziqhamo zalo nokulunga kwalo, nanku singabakhonzi kulo.
37 Ungeniselo lwalo lilwandisela ookumkani, owabamisa phezu kwethu ngenxa yezono zethu; bayayilawula imizimba yethu neenkomo zethu, ngokuzithandela kwabo; sisembandezelweni enkulu.

Isahluko 12

1 Ngabo aba ababingeleli nabaLevi, abenyuka noZerubhabheli unyana kaShelatiyeli, noYeshuwa: ibinguSeraya, noYeremiya, noEzra,
2 noAmariya, noMaluki, noHatushe,
3 noShekaniya, noRehum, noMeremoti,
4 noIdo, noGinetohi, noAbhiya,
5 noMiyamin, noMahadiya, noBhilega,
6 noShemaya, noYoyaribhi, noYedaya,
7 noSalu, noAmoki, noHilekiya, noYedaya. Abo ibiziintloko zababingeleli nabazalwana babo, emihleni kaYeshuwa.
8 AbaLevi: ibinguYeshuwa, noBhinwi, noKademiyeli, noSherebhiya, noYuda, noMataniya obephethe imibulelo, yena nabazalwana bakhe;
9 noBhakebhukiya, noUni; abazalwana babo babemalunga nabo besezigxineni.
10 Ke uYeshuwa wazala uYoyakim; uYoyakim wazala uEliyashibhi; uEliyashibhi wazala uYoyada;
11 uYoyada wazala uYonatan; uYonatan wazala uYaduwa.
12 Ke emihleni kaYoyakim bekukho ababingeleli abaziintloko zezindlu zooyise: okaSeraya inguMeraya; okaYeremiya inguHananiya;
13 okaUEzra inguMeshulam; oka-Amariya inguYohanan;
14 okaMeliku inguYonatan; okaShebhaniya inguYosefu;
15 okaHarim inguAdena; okaMerayoti inguHelekayi;
16 okaIdo inguZekariya; okaGineton inguMeshulam;
17 oka-Abhiya inguZikri; okaMinyamin, okaMowadiya inguPiletayi;
18 okaBhilega inguShamuwa; okaShemaya inguYonatan;

20 okaSalayi inguKalayi; oka-Amoki inguEbhere;
21 okaHilekiya inguHashabhiya; okaYedaya inguNataniyeli.
22 Malunga nabaLevi, ngemihla kaEliyashibhi, noYoyada, noYohanan, noYaduwa, kwabhalwa iintloko zezindlu zooyise; nezababingeleli, ebukumkanini bukaDariyo umPersi.
23 Oonyana bakaLevi, iintloko zezindlu zooyise, babebhalwa encwadini yemicimbi yemihla, kwada kweza nasemihleni kaYohanan unyana kaEliyashibhi.
24 Ke iintloko zabaLevi: ibinguHashabhiya, noSherebhiya, noYeshuwa unyana kaKademiyeli, nabazalwana babo malungana nabo, ukuba badumise, babulele, ngokomthetho kaDavide umfo wakwaThixo, iqela lilunge neqela;
25 inguMataniya, noBhakebhukiya, no-Obhadiya, noMeshulam, noTalemon, noAkubhi babengabamasango, begcina isigxina koovimba bamasango.
26 Abo babekho emihleni kaYoyakim unyana kaYeshuwa, unyana kaYotsadaki, nasemihleni kaNehemiya ibamba, noUEzra umbingeleli, umbhali.
27 Ke kaloku ekusungulweni kodonga lweYerusalem kwafunwa abaLevi ezindaweni zabo zonke, ukuba baziswe eYerusalem, ukuba ukusungulwa kwalo kwenziwe ngovuyo, nangemibulelo, nangeengoma, nangamacangci, nangemirhubhe, nangeehadi.
28 Bahlanganisana oonyana beemvumi, bevela kuloo mmandla ujikeleze iYerusalem, nasemizini yamaNetofa;
29 naseBhete yaseGiligali, nasemihlabeni yaseGebha, neAzemavete; ngokuba iimvumi zazizakhele imizi ejikeleze iYerusalem.
30 Bazihlambulula ababingeleli nabaLevi, bahlambulula abantu, namasango, nodonga olo.
31 Ndabanyusa abathetheli bakwaYuda phezu kodonga, ndamisa amaqela amakhulu amabini okubulela, enza imityino, elinye lasinga ekunene phezu kodonga esangweni lenkunkuma.
32 Emva kwalo kwahamba uHoshaya nesiqingatha sabathetheli bakwaYuda,
33 noAzariya, noEzra, noMeshulam,
34 noYuda, noBhenjamin, noShemaya, noYeremiya.
35 Koonyana bababingeleli benamaxilongo yayinguZekariya unyana kaYonatan, unyana kaShemaya, unyana kaMataniya, unyana kaMikaya, unyana kaZakure, unyana ka-Asafu;
36 nabazalwana bakhe: ooShemaya, noAzareli, noMilalayi, noGilalayi, noMahayi, noNataniyeli, noYuda, noHanani, beneempahla zokuvuma zikaDavide umfo wakwaThixo; ke uUEzra umbhali ebephambi kwabo.
37 Basinga esangweni lomthombo, bathi ngqo, benyuka ngezinyuko zomzi kaDavide, ekunyukeni kodonga bayongamela indlu kaDavide, besa esangweni lamanzi ngasempumalanga.
38 Iqela lesibini lokubulela elahamba malunga nelo, ndingasemva kwalo, ndinesinye isiqingatha sabantu, lahamba phezu kodonga, layongamela inqaba ende yamaziko, lesa eludongeni olubanzi;
39 lasongamela isango lakwaEfrayim, nesango lodonga oludala, nesango leentlanzi, nenqaba ende kaHananeli, nenqaba ende kaHameha, lada leza esangweni lempahla emfutshane, bamisa esangweni lentolongo.
40 Ema ke omabini amaqela okubulela endlwini kaThixo, mna ndinesiqingatha sabaphathi;
41 nababingeleli, ooEliyakim, noMahaseya, noMinyamin, noMikaya, noEliyohenayi, noZekariya, noHananiya, benamaxilongo;
42 noMahaseya, noShemaya, noEleyazare, noUzi, noYohanan, noMalekiya, noElam, noEzere. Iimvumi zavuma kakhulu, uYezeraya engumphathi wazo.
43 Babingelela ngaloo mini imibingelelo emikhulu, bavuya; ngokuba uThixo ubebavuyisile ngovuyo olukhulu. Kananjalo abafazi nabantwana bavuya; kwavakala ukuvuya kweYerusalem namgama.
44 Ngaloo mini kwamiswa amadoda okuphatha amagumbi okubangoovimba bemirhumo, neentlahlela, nezishumi, ukuba zifunjwe kuwo, ngokwemihlaba yemizi, izabelo ezimiselwe ababingeleli nabaLevi ngomyalelo; ngokuba amaYuda abevuya ngababingeleli nangabaLevi abemiyo.
45 Basigcina isigxina sikaThixo wabo, nesigxina sentlambululo; zenjenjalo iimvumi nabamasango, ngokomthetho kaDavide, noSolomon unyana wakhe;
46 ngokuba ngemihla kaDavide, kwakudala, uAsafu ubeyintloko yeemvumi, neyokudumisa uThixo, neyokubulela kuye.
47 Onke amaSirayeli, ngemihla kaZerubhabheli nangemihla kaNehemiya, abe ezinika iimvumi nabamasango izabelo, into yemini ngangemini yayo, engcwalisela abaLevi, abaLevi bengcwalisela oonyana baka-Aron.




Isahluko 13

1 Ngaloo mini kwaleswa encwadini kaMoses ezindlebeni zabantu; kwafunyanwa kubhaliwe kuyo ukuthi, Ama-Amon namaMowabhi makangangeni ebandleni likaThixo naphakade;
2 ngokuba engabakhawulelanga oonyana bakaSirayeli enesonka namanzi; esuka abaqeshela uBhileham, ukuba abaqalekise; ke uThixo wethu wayiguqula ingqalekiso yaba yintsikelelo.
3 Kwathi bakuva umyalelo lowo, bawahlula wonke umxube kumaSirayeli.
4 Ke kaloku phambi koko, uEliyashibhi umbingeleli, obemiswe phezu kwamagumbi endlu kaThixo wethu, wazalamanisa noTobhiya,
5 wamenzela igumbi elikhulu, apho bekufudula kubekwa khona umnikelo wokudla, nentlaka emhlophe, nempahla, nezishumi zengqolowa, nezewayini entsha, nezeoli, ezibe zimiselwe abaLevi neemvumi nabamasango; nemirhumo yababingeleli.
6 Ekwenzekeni oko konke bendingekho eYerusalem; ngokuba, ngomnyaka wamashumi amathathu anesibini ka-Artashashta ukumkani waseBhabheli, ndaya kukumkani ekupheleni kwemihla, ndacela kukumkani ukuba ndibuye.
7 Ndafika ke eYerusalem, ndabugqala ububi abebenzile uEliyashibhi ngenxa kaTobhiya, ngokumenzela kwakhe igumbi ezintendelezweni zendlu kaThixo.
8 Kwaba kubi kum kakhulu; ndazilahlela phandle zonke iimpahla zendlu kaTobhiya ngaphandle kwegumbi.
9 Ndatsho, bawahlambulula amagumbi; ndazibuyisela khona iimpahla zendlu kaThixo, umnikelo wokudla, nentlaka emhlophe.
10 Ndazi ukuba izabelo zabaLevi abazinikwanga; ngokuba abaLevi neemvumi, ababesebenza umsebenzi, babebalekele elowo emhlabeni wakhe.
11 Ndabambana nabaphathi, ndathi, Yini na ukuba indlu kaThixo ishiywe nje? Ndababutha, ndabamisa esikhundleni sabo.
12 Aza onke amaYuda azisa izishumi zengqolowa, nezewayini entsha, nezeoli, koovimba.
13 Ndamisa phezu koovimba uShelemiya umbingeleli, noTsadoki umbhali, noPedaya kubaLevi; naphantsi kwezandla zabo yanguHanan unyana kaZakure, unyana kaMataniya; ngokuba bekusithiwa banyanisekile; bamiselwa ukwabela abazalwana babo.
14 Ndikhumbule, Thixo wam, ngenxa yoko; musa ukuzicima iinceba zam, endizenzileyo endlwini kaThixo wam, nasezigxineni zayo.
15 Ngaloo mihla ndabona kwaYuda abaxovula ezixovulelweni zewayini ngesabatha, nabathutha amasinde, abathwalisa amaesile; kwanewayini, neediliya, namakhiwane, nemithwalo yonke, beyizisa eYerusalem ngemini yesabatha; ndaqononondisa ngaloo mini bathengisa ngokudla ngayo.
16 Kwakuhleli khona nabaseTire, bezise iintlanzi neento zonke zentengiso; bethengisa ngesabatha koonyana bakaYuda eYerusalem.
17 Ndabambana nabanumzana bakwaYuda, ndathi kubo, Yintoni na le nto imbi kangaka niyenzayo, niwuhlambelayo umhla wesabatha?
18 Babengenjenalo na ooyihlo, waza uThixo wethu wasifikisela thina nalo mzi bonke obo bubi? Ke nina nongeza ukuvutha komsindo kuSirayeli, niyihlambela nje isabatha.
19 Bekusithi, kwakuba lungcwalazi phakathi kwamasango aseYerusalem phambi kwesabatha, ndithi mazivalwe iingcango; ndithi mazingavulwa ide igqithe isabatha. Ndamisa inxenye yamadodana akwam emasangweni, ukuze kungangeniswa mthwalo ngemini yesabatha.
20 Abarhwebi, nabathengisa ngeento zonke zentengiso, babelala ngaphandle kweYerusalem kanye nokuba kukabini.
21 Ndaqononondisa kubo, ndathi kubo, Yini na ukuba nilale phambi kodonga? Ukuba nithe naphinda, ndonisa isandla. Kususela kwelo xesha ababanga seza ngesabetha.
22 Ndathi kubaLevi mabazihlambulule, beze bagcine amasango, ukuze kungcwaliswe umhla wesabatha. Ndikhumbulele nangale nto, Thixo wam, ube nenceba kum ngokobuninzi benceba yakho.
23 Kananjalo ngaloo mihla ndawabona amaYuda abezeke abafazi abangama-Ashdodekazi, nama-Amonikazi, namaMowabhikazi,
24 oonyana babo inxenye bethetha ngesiAshdode, bengenakuqonda ukuthetha ngesiYuda, bethetha ngokwentetho yezizwe ngezizwe.
25 Ndabambana nawo, ndawatshabhisa, ndabetha amadoda kuwo, ndawadlathula iinwele, ndawafungisa uThixo ngokuthi, Inene, iintombi zenu aniyi kuzendisela koonyana babo, neentombi zabo aniyi kuzizekela oonyana benu, aniyi kuzizeka nani ngokwenu.
26 Wayengone ngenxa yabo yini na uSolomon, ukumkani wamaSirayeli? Ezintlangeni ezininzi kwakungekho kumkani unjengaye: ubethandwa nguThixo wakhe, uThixo wamnika ukuba ngukumkani wamaSirayeli onke; naye lowo bamonisa abafazi bezinye iintlanga.
27 Makuvakale ngani na, ukuba nenze bonke obu bubi bukhulu, bokwenza ubumenemene kuThixo wethu, ngokuzeka abafazi bezinye iintlanga?
28 Ke kaloku koonyana bakaYoyada, unyana kaEliyashibhi, umbingeleli omkhulu, bekukho kubo ongumyeni kwaSanebhalati waseHoron; ndamgxotha ke kum.
29 Bakhumbule, Thixo wam, ngenxa yokuhlambela kwabo ububingeleli, nomnqophiso wobubingeleli, nowobuLevi.
30 Ndawahlambuluka ke ezintweni zonke zezinye iintlanga, ndazimisa izigxina zababingeleli nezabaLevi, zomntu ngomntu emsebenzini wakhe,
31 nezomsondezo weenkuni ngamaxesha amisiweyo, nezeentlahlela. Ndikhumbulele okulungileyo, Thixo wam.
