1 Umbono kaIsaya unyana ka-Amotsi, awawubonayo ngokusingisele kuYuda neYerusalem, ngemihla yoUziya, noYotam, noAhazi, noHezekiya, ookumkani bakwaYuda.
2 Yivani, mazulu; bekani indlebe, hlabathi, ngokuba kuthetha uYehova. Uthi, Ndikhulise abantwana ndabondla, besuka bakreqa kum.
3 Inkomo iyamazi umniniyo, ne-esile liyawazi umkhombe wesitali senkosi yalo; ke yena uSirayeli akazi, abantu bam abaqiqi.
4 Hayi, luhlanga lonayo, bantu banobugwenxa, mbewu yabenza ububi, nyana bonakalisayo! Bamshiyile uYehova, bamgibile oyiNgcwele kaSirayeli, babuyela emva.
5 Yini na ukuba nimane ukubethwa, nimane ukukwandisa ukutyeka? Yonke intloko iyafa, yonke intliziyo inobulwelwe;
6 kuthabathele enkwalini yonyawo, kwesa entloko, akukho ndawo iphilileyo; ziinduma, nemivumbo, namanxeba amatsha: akacudiswanga, akabotshwanga, akathanjiswanga ngaoli.
7 Kusenkangala elizweni lenu, imizi yenu itshiswe ngomlilo, umhlaba wenu udliwa ngabasemzini phambi kwenu, uyinkangala njengokubhukuqwa kwabasemzini.
8 Isele ke intombi enguZiyon, njengexhobongo esidiliyeni, njengephempe entsimini yemixoxozi, njengomzi ongqingiweyo.
9 Koko uYehova wemikhosi wasisalisela intwana esindileyo, singe saba njengeSodom, singe safana neGomora.
10 Liveni ilizwi likaYehova, baphathi baseSodom; wubekeleni indlebe umyalelo kaThixo wethu, bantu baseGomora.
11 Yeyani na kum le mibingelelo yenu mininzi kangaka? utsho uYehova. Ndidikiwe ngamadini anyukayo eenkunzi zeegusha, namanqatha amathole atyetyisiweyo; negazi leenkunzi ezintsha, neleemvana, neleebhokhwe, andilinanzile.
12 Xa niza kubonakala ebusweni bam, ngubani na okufunileyo oko esandleni senu, ukugqusha iintendelezo zam?
13 Nize ningaphindi nizise mnikelo wakudla ukhohlakeleyo; isiqhumiso silisikizi kum; ukuthwasa kwenyanga, nesabatha, nokumema intlanganiso, ubutshinga kunye nengqungquthela, andinakubuthwala.
14 Ukuthwasa kweenyanga zenu, namaxesha enu amisiweyo, umphefumlo wam uwathiyile; asuka aba bubunzima kum; ndidiniwe kukuwathwala.
15 Ekoluleni kwenu izandla zenu, ndiya kuwafihla amehlo am kuni; nokuba nandise ukuthandaza, andiyi kuva; izandla zenu zizele ngamagazi.
16 Zihlambeni, ziqaqambiseni; susani ububi beentlondi zenu phambi kwamehlo am;
17 yekani ukwenza ububi; fundani ukwenza okulungileyo; khathalelani ukugweba; lulekani isibhovubhovu; gwebani ityala lenkedama; lithetheni ityala lomhlolokazi.
18 Khanize sibonisane, utsho uYehova; nokuba izono zenu zide zavela zanjengengubo ebomvu, zoba mhlophe njengekhephu; nokuba zide zayingqombela njengebala elibomvu, zovela zinjengoboya begusha.
19 Ukuba nithe navuma naphulaphula, nodla izinto ezilungileyo zelizwe;
20 ukuba nithe anavuma, naba neenkani, nodliwa likrele; kuba umlomo kaYehova uthethile.
21 Yoo! Utheni na ukuba lihenyukazi umzi lo, ubunyanisile; ubuzele kokusesikweni; ubulungisa bebulala kuwo; ke ngoku ngabancinithi!
22 Isilivere yakho isuke yaba ligwebu; iwayini yakho entle ingxengelelwe ngamanzi.
23 Abathetheli bakho baziinjubaqa, ngamadlelana namasela; bathanda izicengo bonke bephela, basukela imivuzo; ityala lenkedama abaligwebi, netyala lomhlolokazi alinakufika kubo.
24 Ngako oko itsho iNkosi, uYehova wemikhosi, imbalasane yakwaSirayeli, ukuthi, Yeha! Ndiya kuzithuthuzela kubabandezeli bam, ndiziphindezelele ezintshabeni zam.
25 Ndosibuyisela phezu kwakho isandla sam, ndikunyibilikise ngokufezekileyo njengegolide, likhutshwe igwebu lakho, ndisuse yonke intsila yakho.
26 Ndobabuyisa abagwebi bakho njengokwasekuqaleni, namaphakathi akho njengokwamatanci. Emveni koko kuya kuthiwa, Wena ungumzi wobulungisa, uyinqaba enyanisileyo.
27 IZiyon iya kukhululwa ngokusesikweni, nabaguquki bayo ngobulungisa;
28 ukwaphulwa kwabakreqi naboni kube kunye, bapheliswe abamshiyayo uYehova.
29 Ngokuba baya kudana yimiterebhinti ebeniyinqwenela, nibe neentloni yimiyezo ebeniyinyula;
30 kuba niya kuba njengomterebhinti omagqabi omayo, nanjengomyezo ongenamanzi;
31 nenjengele ibe yingxubuwa, nomsebenzi wayo ube yintlantsi, kutshe kuphele kokubini kunye, kungabikho ucimayo.

1 Ilizwi awalibonayo uIsaya unyana ka-Amotsi, ngokusingisele kuYuda neYerusalem.
2 Ke kaloku kuya kuthi ekupheleni kwemihla, intaba yendlu kaYehova ivelele ezincotsheni zazo iintaba, izongamele iinduli, zibe ngumsinga ukuya kuyo zonke iintlanga.
3 Kuya kuhamba izizwe ezininzi, zithi, Yizani, sinyuke siye entabeni kaYehova, endlwini kaThixo kaYakobi; asiyalele iindlela zakhe, sihambe ngomendo wakhe. Kuba kuya kuphuma umyalelo eZiyon, nelizwi likaYehova eYerusalem.
4 Uya kugweba phakathi kweentlanga, ohlwaye izizwe ezininzi; ziwakhande amakrele azo abe ngamakhuba, nezikhali zazo zibe zizitshetshe zeediliya; uhlanga lungaphakamiseli uhlanga ikrele, nezizwe zingaphindi zifunde ukulwa.
5 Ndlu kaYakobi, yizani, sihambe ekukhanyeni kukaYehova.
6 Kuba ubalahlile abantu bakho, indlu kaYakobi; ngokuba bezele zizinto zasempumalanga, bengamatola njengamaFilisti, bebambene ngezandla nabantwana bezinye iintlanga.
7 Ilizwe labo lizele yisilivere negolide; abunakuphela ubuncwane babo. Ilizwe labo lizele ngamahashe; azinakuphela iinqwelo zabo zokulwa.
8 Ilizwe labo lizele zizithixo ezingeni; baqubuda kumsebenzi wezandla zabo, kwinto eyenziwe yiminwe yabo.
9 Ophantsi uyagoba, nendoda ephakamileyo ithotyelwe phantsi, ungabaxoleli ke.
10 Ngena eweni, uziselele eluthulini, ngenxa yokoyika uYehova, nangenxa yozuko lobungangamsha bakhe.
11 Amehlo aqwayingileyo esintu othotywa, noqhankqalazo lwamadoda lusibekeke; nguYehova yedwa owoba yingxonde ngaloo mini.
12 Kuba uYehova wemikhosi unemini eyozongamela izinto zonke ezinekratshi, ezinoqhankqalazo; nezinto zonke ezizinyusileyo zithotywe nezinto zonke ezisinyusileyo zithotywe ke.
13 Woyongamela imisedare yonke yaseLebhanon, emide, ezinyusileyo,
14 nezonke ezinde, neenduli zonke ezizinyusileyo;
15 neenqaba zonke eziphakamileyo, neendonga zonke ezinqatyisiweyo;
16 neenqanawa zonke zaseTarshishe, nezinto zonke ezibonakala zinqweneleka.
17 Kosibekeka ukuzidla kwaba baphantsi, kuthotywe ukuqhankqalaza kwamadoda aphakamileyo. NguYehova yedwa owoba yingxonde ngaloo mini;
18 izithixo ezingeni zothi shwaka zonke ziphela.
19 Bongena emiqolombeni yamawa nasemingxunyeni yomhlaba ngenxa yokoyika uYehova, nangenxa yozuko lobungangamsha bakhe, ekuphakameni kwakhe ukuba angcangcazelise ilizwe.
20 Ngaloo mini umntu uya kuziphosa ezintukwini nasemalulwaneni izithixo zakhe ezingeni zesilivere, nezithixo zakhe ezingeni zegolide, abamenzelayo ukuze aqubude kuzo;
21 ukuze angene ezimfanteni zamawa nasemiqhokrweni yeengxondorha, ngenxa yokoyika uYehova, nangenxa yozuko lobungangamsha bakhe, ekuphakameni kwakhe ukuba angcangcazelise ilizwe.
22 Khanimyeke umntu omphefumlo usemathatheni akhe; ngokuba kuthiwa, Uyintoni na?

1 Ngokuba uyabona, iNkosi, uYehova wemikhosi, isusa eYerusalem nakwaYuda isixhaso nenkxaso, sonke isixhaso sesonka kwanesixhaso samanzi:
2 igorha nendoda yokulwa, umgwebi nomprofeti, umvumisi nendoda enkulu,
3 umthetheli wamashumi amahlanu, nobekekileyo, nomphakathi, nesilumko esinobungcibi, nengqondi yokukhwitsa.
4 Ndobanika abathetheli abangabantwana, nabafekethi babalawule;
5 bakhandanisane abantu ulowo nalowo, ulowo nalowa. Baya kusunduzana umntwana nendoda enkulu, ubuvuvu nabazukileyo.
6 Xa umntu aya kuthi abambelele kumzalwana wakhe endlwini kayise, athi, Unengubo wena, masiphathwe nguwe, oku kukhahleleka kube sesandleni sakho:
7 wophimisela ngaloo mini athi, Andingebi mphilisi, endlwini yam kungekho sonka, kungekho ngubo; aninakundenza umphathi wabantu.
8 Ngokuba ikhahlelekile iYerusalem, awile amaYuda; ngokuba iilwimi zabo neentlondi zabo zichase uYehova, ukuba bawaphikise amehlo obuqaqawuli bakhe.
9 Imbonakalo yobuso babo iyangqina ngabo, bayaxixela izono zabo njengeSodom, abakhanyeli. Yeha umphefumlo wabo, ngokuba beziphethe kakubi kwabona!
10 Yithi kumalungisa, kuya kulunga kuwo; ngokuba isiqhamo sezenzo zawo aya kusidla.
11 Yeha ongendawo! Kuya kuba kubi kuye; ngokuba ukuphatha kwezandla zakhe kuya kwenziwa kuye.
12 Abantu bam bakhandaniswa ngabantwana, balawulwa ngabafazi. Bantu bam, abakhokeli benu ngabandwendwisi, bayigqukile indlela yomendo wenu.
13 Usukile wema uYehova ukuba athethe ityala; umi ukuba agwebe ebantwini.
14 UYehova uya kungena ematyaleni namadoda amakhulu abantu bakhe, nabathetheli babo; esithi, Ke nina nisigqibile isidiliya; okuphangwe kusizana kusezindlwini zenu.
15 Ninani na, ukuba nibatyumze nje abantu bam, nibusile ubuso beentsizana? itsho iNkosi, uYehova wemikhosi.
16 Kananjalo uthi ke uYehova, Ngenxa enokuba zizidla iintombi zaseZiyon, zihamba zolule iintamo, zitshawula ngamehlo, zihamba zicothoza ukuhamba kwazo, zisenza isigampe esisezinyaweni zazo:
17 ngako oko iNkosi yolujaduka ukakayi lweentombi zaseZiyon, uYehova azihlube ubunkazana bazo.
18 Ngaloo mini iNkosi yozisusa izihombo zemixokelelwane, nesangqawe, nentsimbi yomqala,
19 namajikazi, neewatsha, nezigqubuthelo,
20 neembasa, neenxaxhazo, neenqwemesha, namahlala okujoja, namakhubalo,
21 nemisesane, namakhonkco empumlo,
22 nezambatho ezinqabileyo, neengubo zokwaleka ezingaphezulu, neetyali, neengxowa zemali,
23 nezipili, neeqhiya zelinen entle, neenkontsho, neengubo zokwaleka ezikrelekrele.
24 Kothi esikhundleni sobulawu ibe kukuvunda, esikhundleni sombhinqo ibe yintambo; esikhundleni seempothe ibe yimpempethe, esikhundleni sengubo engwabungwabu ibe sisikhaka esirhwexayo; ibe ngumtshiso esikhundleni sobunzwakazi.
25 Amadoda akho aya kuwa likrele, namagorha akho yimfazwe;
26 ancwine enze isijwili amasango ayo, ithi yona ikhutshululwe, ihlale phantsi emhlabeni.

1 Abafazi abasixhenxe bobambelela ndodeni-nye ngaloo mini, besithi, Sodla esethu isonka, sambathe ezethu iingubo; kodwa masibizwe ngegama lakho, ukususe ukungcikiveka kwethu.
2 Ngaloo mini isithole sikaYehova siya kuba yinto enobukhazikhazi enobuqaqawuli, isiqhamo selizwe sibe yingangamsha nesihombo kwabasindileyo bakwaSirayeli.
3 Wothi oshiyekileyo eZiyon, noseleyo eYerusalem, kuthiwe ungcwele, bonke ababhalelwe ebomini eYerusalem;
4 yakuba ithe iNkosi yakuhlamba ukungcola kweentombi zaseZiyon, yawahlanza amagazi aseYerusalem phakathi kwayo ngomoya ogwebayo, nangomoya olulophu.
5 Wodala ke uYehova phezu kweendawo zonke zeentaba zeZiyon, naphezu kweentlanganiso zayo, ilifu elingumsi emini, nokudangazela komlilo ebusuku. Kuba phezu kobuqaqawuli obo bonke, kuya kubakho isigubungelo;

Isahluko 5

1 Intanda yam makhe ndiyivumele ingoma yentanda yam, ngesidiliya sayo. Intanda yam ibe inesidiliya endulini echumayo;
2 yasigaba, yawemba amatye, yasityala imidiliya yohlobo, yakha inyango phakathi kwaso, yaxhola kuso umkhombe wokukhongozela iwayini. Yalinda ukuba sivelise iidiliya ezizizo; ke sona savelisa iidiliya ezingezizo.
3 Kaloku ke, bemi baseYerusalem, nani madoda akwaYuda, khanahlule phakathi kwam nesidiliya sam.
4 Kube kusekho ntoni na eyenziwayo esidiliyeni sam, endingayenzanga ke kuso? Kube kungani na ukuba ndikulinde ukuba sivelise iidiliya ezizizo, sisuke sivelise ezingezizo?
5 Kaloku ke makhe ndinazise into endiya kusenza yona isidiliya sam. Ndiza kususa uthango lwaso, sibe lidlelo; ndiya kuluchitha udonga lwaso, sibe yingqushu; ndisijece kuphele.
6 Asiyi kuthenwa, asiyi kuhlakulwa; siya kumila ubobo namakhakakhaka; ndiwawisele umthetho amafu, ukuba angani mvula phezu kwaso.
7 Kuba isidiliya sikaYehova wemikhosi yindlu kaSirayeli; namadoda akwaYuda sisityalo sokumyolisa. Walinda ukuba kubekho okusesikweni, nanku ikukudywida; walinda ukuba kubekho ubulungisa, nanko ikukukhalisa.
8 Yeha, abahlomela indlu kwindlu, abasondeza intsimi kwintsimi, kude kungabikho ndawo, nihlale nedwa phakathi kwelizwe!
9 Ezindlebeni zam uthi uYehova wemikhosi, Inyaniso, izindlu ezininzi ziya kuba ngamanxuwa, ezinkulu, ezintle zingabi namhlali.
10 Kuba ishumi leendima zesidiliya liya kwenza ibhate ibe nye, nehomere yembewu yenze iefa yodwa.
11 Yeha, abavuka kusasa, besukela isiselo esinxilisayo; balibale kude kube lungcwalazi, ide ibatshise iwayini!
12 Ibe luhadi nomrhubhe, ingqongqo nogwali, newayini, emgidini wabo; ke wona umsebenzi kaYehova abawubeki, nezenzo zezandla zakhe abaziboni.
13 Ngako oko abantu bam bayafuduswa bengazi, nabazukileyo kubo baba ngabafo bendlala, ingxokolo yabo itshiswa linxano.
14 Ngako oko elabafileyo lizandisile, lakhame ngokungenamlinganiso; buhlile ubungangamela babo, nengxokozelo yabo, nengxolo yabo, nabadlamkileyo kubo.
15 Bayasibekeka abantu abaphantsi, athotywe amadoda aphakamileyo, athotywe amehlo abazidlayo;
16 ke yena uYehova wemikhosi uyaziphakamisa ngogwebo, azingcwalise uThixo oyiNgcwele ngobulungisa.
17 Kodla iimvana apho, kunge kusedlelweni lazo; abasemathanga badlise emanxuweni ezityebi.
18 Yeha, abatsala ubugwenxa ngeentambo zenkohlakalo, nesono bange basitsala ngomqokozo wenqwelo;
19 abathi, Makasingxamise asikhawulezise isenzo sakhe, ukuze sibone; malisondele lize icebo loyiNgcwele kaSirayeli, ukuze sazi!
20 Yeha, abathi okubi kulungile, okulungileyo kubi; abamisa ubumnyama endaweni yokukhanya, ukukhanya endaweni yobumnyama; abamisa ubukrakra endaweni yobumnandi, ubumnandi endaweni yobukrakra!
21 Yeha, abalumkileyo kwawabo amehlo, abanengqondo kokwabo ukubona!
22 Yeha, abangamagorha okusela iwayini; abangamadoda akrotele ukuphithikeza isiselo esinxilisayo; abagwebela abangendawo, besekeleze isicengo;
23 ubulungisa bamalungisa babususe kuwo!
24 Ngako oko, njengokuba ulwimi lomlilo luzidla iindiza, nesikhotha esomileyo sibohla edangatyeni: kwangokunjalo ingcambu yabo iya kuba njengento evundileyo, nentyantyambo yabo inyuke njengothuli; kuba besilahlile isiyalo sikaYehova wemikhosi, bayigiba intetho yoyiNgcwele kaSirayeli.
25 Ngenxa yoko uyavutha umsindo kaYehova kubantu bakhe; usolule phezu kwabo isandla sakhe, uyababetha; zagungqa iintaba, izidumbu zabo zanjengenkunkuma phakathi kwezitrato. Kuko konke oko, awubuyi umsindo wakhe, isandla sakhe sisolukile.
26 Uzinyusela ibhanile iintlanga zakude, azenzele ikhwelo eziphelweni zehlabathi; nanzo zisiza zikhawuleza ngamendu.
27 Akukho utyhafileyo, akukho ukhubekayo kuzo; azozeli, azilali, umbhinqo wamanqe azo awuthukululeki, umtya weembadada zazo awuqhawuki.
28 Iintolo zazo zitsolile, nezaphetha zazo zonke zityediwe; amanqina amahashe azo kuthiwa anjengeqhwitha, neevili zazo zinjengesaqhwithi. Ukubharhula kwazo kunjengengonyamakazi;
29 zibharhula njengeengonyama ezintsha, zigqume, ziyibambe inyamakazi, zimke nayo, kungabikho uhlangulayo.
30 Zogquma phezu kwabo ngaloo mini, ngathi kukugquma kolwandle; babheke emhlabeni, nanko kumnyama yimbandezelo, nokukhanya kumnyama emafini phezu kwabo.

1 Ngomnyaka wokufa kokumkani u-Uziya, ndayibona iNkosi ihleli etroneni ende enyukileyo; amasondo eengubo zayo ezirholayo azalisa itempile.
2 Kumi iiserafi ngaphezu kwayo, iyileyo inamaphiko amathandathu, ngamabini ifihle ubuso bayo, ngamabini ifihle iinyawo zayo, ngamabini iphaphazela.
3 Iyileyo idanduluke kuleyo isithi. Uyingcwele, uyingcwele, uyingcwele uYehova wemikhosi; buzalise ihlabathi lonke ubuqaqawuli bakhe.
4 Yadidizela imigubasi yeminyango lilizwi lowadandulukayo; yaye indlu izele ngumsi.
5 Ndathi, Athi ke mna! Ngokuba ndithe shwaka, ngokuba ndiyindoda emlomo uyinqambi; ndihleli phakathi kwabantu abamilomo iyinqambi; ngokuba amehlo am abone ukumkani, uYehova wemikhosi.
6 Yaphaphazela yeza kum enye yeeserafi, iphethe ilahle elivuthayo, elithabathe ngesithabatho esibingelelweni;
7 yalifikisa emlonyeni wam, yathi, Yabona, eli lahle lifikile nje emlonyeni wakho, bususiwe ubugwenxa bakho, nesono sakho sicanyagushelwe.
8 Ndeva izwi leNkosi, lisithi, Ndothuma bani na? Ngubani na owosiyela?
9 Ndathi, Ndikho, thuma mna. Yathi, Yiya, uthi kubo aba bantu, Yivani, ukuva oku niya kuva, ningaqondi; qiqani, ukubona oku niya kubona, ningaqiqi.
10 Yityebise intliziyo yaba bantu, neendlebe zabo zenze zithi nkqi, namehlo abo uwavingce; hleze babone ngamehlo abo, beve ngeendlebe zabo, baqonde ngentliziyo yabo, babuye, baze baphiliswe.
11 Ndathi, Kube mzuzu ungakanani na, Nkosi? Yathi, Kude kuye kuchithwa imizi, ingabi nabemi, nezindlu zingabi namntu, utshabalale umhlaba kube senkangala;
12 uYehova amse kude umntu, abe maninzi amanxuwa phakathi kwelizwe.
13 Kuya kuthi, ukuba kusekho isahlulo seshumi khona, sibuye naso sibe yinto yokutshayelwa; njengomterebhinti nanjengomoki, othi ekuwisweni kwawo kushiyeke isiphunzi; yimbewu engcwele ke isiphunzi eso.

1 Ke kaloku kwathi, ngemihla ka-Ahazi unyana kaYotam, unyana kaUziya, ukumkani wakwaYuda, wenyuka uRetsin ukumkani wama-Aram, enoPeka unyana kaRemaliya, ukumkani wakwaSirayeli, weza eYerusalem, ukuba alwe nayo; akaba nako ke ukulwa nayo.
2 Kwaxelwa kwindlu kaDavide, kwathiwa, Ama-Aram athelele kwabelakwaEfrayim. Yadidizela intliziyo yakhe nentliziyo yabantu bakhe, njengokudidizela kwemithi yehlathi phambi komoya.
3 Wathi uYehova kuIsaya, Khawuphume uye umkhawulele uAhazi, wena noMasalela-obuya unyana wakho, ekupheleni komjelo wechibi lasentla, emendweni ongasentsimini yomxovuli weengubo;
4 uthi kuye, Gcinisa, uzole, ungoyiki, ingathambi intliziyo yakho ngenxa yezo zikhondo zibini zezikhuni eziqhumayo, ekuvutheni komsindo kaRetsin nama-Aram, nonyana kaRemaliya;
5 ngenxa enokuba ama-Aram namaEfrayim nonyana kaRemaliya becebile ububi ngawe, besithi,
6 Masinyuke siye kwelakwaYuda, silikruqule, silinqike libe lelethu, simise ukumkani phakathi kwalo, unyana kaTabhele;
7 itsho iNkosi uYehova, ukuthi, Loo nto ayiyi kuma, ayiyi kubakho.
8 Ngokuba intloko yama-Aram yiDamasko, intloko yeDamasko nguRetsin; kuya kuthi iseyiminyaka emashumi mathandathu anamihlanu, aqotywe amaEfrayim, angabi bantu.
9 Intloko yamaEfrayim kukwaSamari, intloko yakwaSamari ngunyana kaRemaliya. Ukuba nithe anakholwa, inene, aniyi kuqiniseka.
10 Waqokela uYehova, wathetha kuAhazi, esithi,
11 Zicelele umqondiso kuYehova uThixo wakho; cela ubhekise enzulwini kwelabafileyo, mhlawumbi ubhekise enyangweni phezulu.
12 Wathi uAhazi, Andiyi kucela, andiyi kumlinga uYehova.
13 Wathi yena, Khanive, ndlu kaDavide; kuyinto encinane na kuni ukudinisa abantu, ukuda oku nidinise noThixo wam?
14 Ngako oko iya kuninika umqondiso ngokwayo iNkosi: uyabona, intombi le iya kumitha, izale unyana, imthiye igama elinguImanuweli.
15 Uya kudla amasi nobusi, ade akwazi ukulahla okubi, anyule okulungileyo.
16 Kuba, engekakwazi umntwana lowo ukulahla okubi, anyule okulungileyo, woba selushiyiwe loo mhlaba, ukumkani bawo babini bakukruqulayo.
17 UYehova uya kukuzisela wena nabantu bakho, nendlu kayihlo, imihla ekungazanga kubekho ingangayo, kususela kwimini wemka ngayo uEfrayim kwaYuda; ngukumkani waseAsiriya ke lowo.
18 Kothi ngaloo mini uYehova ayenzele ikhwelo impukane esekupheleni kwemijelo yoMnayile waseYiputa, nenyosi esezweni laseAsiriya;
19 zize, ziphumle zonke ziphela ezihlanjeni eziphakathi kwamaxandeka, nasezimfanteni zeengxondorha, nasezintangweni zonke zemiqaqoba, nasemadlelweni onke.
20 Ngaloo mini iNkosi iya kuguya ngesitshetshe esiqeshiweyo selasezinxwemeni zoMlambo, ngokumkani waseAsiriya, intloko noboya beenyawo; siphephethe neendevu.
21 Kothi ngaloo mini umntu aphilise ithokazi lenkomo neemazi zezimvu zibe mbini;
22 kuthi ngokwehlisa kwazo kakhulu adle amasi; ngokuba baya kudla amasi nobusi bonke abo baseleyo phakathi kwelizwe.
23 Kothi ngaloo mini zonke iindawo ezazinewaka lemidiliya elimelwe liwaka leesilivere, zibe zezobobo namakhakakhaka.
24 Kuya kuyiwa khona neentolo nezaphetha; ngokuba lonke ilizwe liya kuba lubobo namakhakakhaka.
25 Zonke iintaba ebezigatywa ngamagaba, akuyi kuya kuzo, ngokoyika ubobo namakhakakhaka; loba lelokugxothela iinkomo, nokunyashwa ziigusha.

1 Wathi uYehova kum, Thabatha icwecwe elikhulu, ubhale kulo ngenkxola yabantu, uthi, NgoMaxhoba ayakhawuleza iinto eziphangiweyo zingxamile,

3 Ndasondela kumprofetikazi, wamitha, wazala unyana. Wathi uYehova kum, Yithi igama lakhe nguMaxhoba ayakhawuleza iinto eziphangiweyo zingxamile.
4 Ngokuba, engekakwazi umntwana lo ukuthi, Bawo, nokuthi, Ma, ubutyebi baseDamasko namaxhoba akwaSamari aya kuthwalelwa phambi kokumkani waseAsiriya.
5 Waqokela uYehova, wabuya wathetha kum, esithi,
6 Ngenxa enokuba abo bantu bewacekisa amanzi aseShilowa, la ahamba kuhle, benze imihlali noRetsin nonyana kaRemaliya:
7 ngako oko, yabona, iNkosi inyusela phezu kwakho amanzi oMlambo, lawo anamandla amakhulu, kwaukumkani waseAsiriya nobunzima bakhe bonke. Wonyuka wona ube ngaphezu kwemisele yawo yonke, uhambe ngaphandle kweendonga zawo zonke,
8 utyhudisele kwelakwaYuda, ukhukule, udlule, ubethe emqaleni; kuthi ukunaba kwamahlelo awo kuzalise ububanzi belizwe lakho, Imanuweli.
9 Bhavumani, zizwe, niqotywe; bekani indlebe, nonke mimandla ikude yehlabathi; bhinqani, niqotywe; bhinqani, niqotywe.
10 Cebani icebo, lotshitsha; thethani ilizwi, aliyi kuma; ngokuba uThixo unathi.
11 Kuba utshilo uYehova kum, eseyisa ngamandla, endithethisa ukuba ndingahambi ngendlela yabo bantu, ukuthi,
12 Ize ningathi, Ikukucetywa into yonke abathi abo bantu, Ikukucetywa; nento eyoyikwa ngabo ningayoyiki, ningangcangcazeliswa yiyo.
13 UYehova wemikhosi, ngcwalisani yena nina, abe nguye enimoyikayo, abe nguye oningcangcazelisayo.
14 Woba yingcwele kuni; ke yena uya kuba lilitye lokubetheka, neliwa lokukhubeka, kuzo zombini izindlu zakwaSirayeli, abe sisibatha nomgibe kubemi baseYerusalem.
15 Abaninzi kubo baya kukhubeka apho, bawe, baphuke, barhintyeleke, babanjiswe.
16 Bopha isingqino, tywina uqinise isiyalo kubafundi bam.
17 Ndiya kulindela kuYehova, lo ubusithelisayo ubuso bakhe kwindlu kaYakobi, ndithembele kuye.
18 Yabona, mna nabantwana andinikileyo uYehova, singabemiqondiso nezimanga kwaSirayeli, ezivela kuYehova wemikhosi, ulohlala entabeni yaseZiyon.
19 Xa bathe kuni, Quqelani kwabaneshologu nakoosiyazi, abalozayo, abadumzelayo, yithini, Abantu mabangaquqeli kuThixo wabo, yini na? Ngenxa yabaphilileyo mabaquqele kwabafileyo na?
20 Bhekani esiyalweni, esingqinweni! Ukuba bathe abathetha ngokwelo lizwi, boba abanasifingo.
21 Baya kucanda kulo ilizwe begogotyelwe, belambile; kuthi ke, xa bathe balamba, babe noburhalarhume, batshabhise ukumkani wabo noThixo wabo, babheke phezulu;
22 babheke emhlabeni, nanko kuyimbandezelo nobumnyama, bethiwe ncithi yingcutheko, begxothelwe esithokothokweni.

1 Ngokuba akuyi kuhlala kuthe ncithi kwelinengcutheko. Ngexesha lokuqala walicukuceza ilizwe lakwaZebhulon nelizwe lakwaNafetali; ngelakamva uya kuyizukisa indlela yaselwandle, phesheya kweYordan, ummandla weentlanga.
2 Abantu abo babamba emnyameni babone ukukhanya okukhulu; abemi basezweni lethunzi lokufa, ukukhanya kubengezele phezu kwabo.
3 Uyalwandisa uhlanga, ulukhulisela uvuyo; bayavuya phambi kwakho, njengokuvuya kwexa lokuvuna, njengokuvuyelela kwabo ekwabeni kwabo amaxhoba.
4 Kuba idyokhwe yomthwalo wabo noswazi lwamagxa abo, intonga yomqhubi wabo, uyaphule njengemini yakwaMidiyan.
5 Ngokuba zonke izihlangu zabanyathela ngezihlangu ekungxoleni kokulwa, neengubo ezityikitywe emagazini, ezo ziya kutshiswa, zibe kukudla komlilo.
6 Ngokuba sizalelwe umntwana, sinikwe unyana; ukuthethela kusesixhantini sakhe; igama lakhe kuthiwa nguMmangaliso, nguMcebisi, nguThixo oligorha, nguSonini-nanini, nguMthetheli woxolo,
7 ukuba kwande ukuthethela oko, kubekho uxolo olungenakuphela etroneni kaDavide, nasebukumkanini bakhe, ukuba bumiswe buxhaswe ngokusesikweni nangobulungisa, kususela koko kude kuse ephakadeni. Ikhwele likaYehova wemikhosi liya kukwenza oko.
8 INkosi ithumela ilizwi kwaYakobi, liwa ke kwaSirayeli.
9 Bonke ke abantu bephela baya kwazi, amaEfrayim nabemi belakwaSamari: abathi ngekratshi nangobukhulu bentliziyo,
10 Izitena ziwile, siya kwakha ngamatye aqingqiweyo; imithombe ixakaxiwe, siya kuyimisela ngemisedare.
11 UYehova ubaphakamisile ababandezeli bakaRetsin phezu kwakhe, uzixhoxhile iintshaba zakhe.
12 Ama-Aram ngasempumalanga, namaFilisti ngasentshonalanga, awadlile amaSirayeli ngomlomo wonke. Kuko konke oko, awubuyi umsindo wakhe; isandla sakhe sisolukile.
13 Aba bantu ke ababuyeli kulowo ubabethileyo; abamngxamele uYehova wemikhosi.
14 Ngoko ke usuke uYehova wanqumla kuSirayeli intloko nomsila, isebe lomthi wesundu nomzi, ngamini-nye.
15 Amadoda amakhulu nabafo ababekekileyo, yintloko ke leyo; abaprofeti abayala ngobuxoki, ngumsila ke lowo.
16 Abakhokeli baba bantu basuke baba ngaba bandwendwisayo, nabakhokelwa ngabo basuke baba ngabaginyiweyo.
17 Ngenxa yoko iNkosi ayiyi kuvuya ngamadodana abo, ingabi namfesane ngeenkedama zabo nabahlolokazi babo; ngokuba bonke bephela baziintshembenxa, nabenzi bobubi; yonke imilomo ithetha ngobudenge. Kuko konke oko, awubuyi umsindo wakhe; isandla sakhe sisolukile.
18 Kuba okungendawo kutsha njengomlilo, kudla ubobo namakhakakhaka, kufaka isikhuni ezintshinyeleni zehlathi, kunyuka njengomqulu womsi.
19 Ngokuphuphuma komsindo kaYehova wemikhosi ilizwe liyatsha; abantu banjengokudla komlilo; umntu akamcongi umzalwana wakhe.
20 Basika ngasekunene, balambe noko; badle ngasekhohlo, bangahluthi noko; umntu adle inyama yengalo yakhe;
21 uManase adle uEfrayim, uEfrayim adle uManase; bona bachasane noYuda. Kuko konke oko, awubuyi umsindo wakhe; sisolukile isandla sakhe.

6 Ndiya kumthumela kuhlanga oluyintshembenxa, ndimwisele umthetho ngabantu bokuphuphuma komsindo wam, ukuba athimbe amaxhoba, aphange okuphangiweyo, abenze into yokunyathelwa njengodaka lwezitrato.
7 Ke yena akabi kunjalo; intliziyo yakhe ayiyicingi loo nto; ngokuba okusentliziyweni yakhe kukutshabalalisa nokunqumla iintlanga ezingembalwa.
8 Kuba uthi, Abathetheli bam asingookumkani bonke na? IKaleno ayinjengeKarkemishe na,

10 Njengokuba isandla sam sazifumanayo izikumkani zezithixo ezingeni; ukanti imifanekiso yazo eqingqiweyo ingaphezulu kweyaseYerusalem neyakwaSamari:
11 andiyi kuthi na, njengoko ndenza ngako kowakwaSamari nezithixo zawo ezingeni, ndenjenjalo kwiYerusalem nezithixo zayo?
12 Kuya kuthi, xa ithe iNkosi yazifeza izenzo zayo zonke entabeni yaseZiyon naseYerusalem, ndizivelele iziqhamo zobukhulu bentliziyo yokumkani waseAsiriya, nokuqhayisa ngokuqwayinga kwamehlo akhe.
13 Kuba uthe, Ndenze ngamandla esandla sam nangobulumko bam; ngokuba ndinengqondo, ndayishenxisa imida yezizwe, ndaziphanga iimpahla zazo, ndabahlisa njengenkunzi eyimbalasane abahleli ezitroneni;
14 isandla sam sabufumana ubutyebi bezizwe njengendlu yentaka, ndalibutha mna lonke ihlabathi, njengokubutha amaqanda; akwabakho nanye ishukumisa iphiko, neyakhamayo, netswinayo.
15 Izembe lingamqhayisela na ogawula ngalo? isarha ingazikhulisa na ngaphezu koyitsalayo? ngathi intonga ingabajingisa abaphakamisi bayo, ngathi uswazi lungamphakamisa ongenguwo umthi!
16 Ngako oko iNkosi, iNkosi yemikhosi, iya kubathumela ukungcumbeka kwabatyebileyo bakhe, nangaphantsi kobuqaqawuli baseAsiriya kutshe ukutsha, njengokutsha komlilo.
17 Ukhanyiso lukaSirayeli luya kuba ngumlilo, oyiNgcwele wakhe abe lilangatye, litshise lidle amakhakakhaka akhe nobobo lwakhe ngamini-nye.
18 Uya kubuphelisa ubuqaqawuli behlathi lakhe, nobentsimi yakhe echumayo, ethabathela emphefumlweni ase enyameni, kube njengokungcungcutheka komntu ofayo;

20 Kuya kuthi ngaloo mini, angabi saphinda amasalela akwaSirayeli, nabasindileyo bendlu kaYakobi, bayame ngobabethayo; baya kwayama ngoYehova oyiNgcwele kaSirayeli, benyanisile.
21 Amasalela aya kubuya, amasalela akwaYakobi, eze kuThixo oligorha.
22 Kuba nangona bathe baba ngangentlabathi yaselwandle abantu bakho, Sirayeli, kobuya amasalela odwa kubo; ukupheliswa kumisiwe kwagqitywa, kukhukula ubulungisa.
23 Ngokuba iNkosi uYehova wemikhosi iza kwenza phakathi kwehlabathi lonke impeliso, iyemisiweyo ke yagqitywa.
24 Ngako oko, itsho iNkosi, uYehova wemikhosi, ukuthi, Musani ukumoyika uAsiriya, bantu bam bahleliyo eZiyon, akunibetha ngentonga, aniphakamisele uswazi lwakhe ngohlobo lwamaYiputa.
25 Kuba kusaya kuba mzuzwana mncinane, kuphele ukubhavuma kwam, nomsindo wam uye kumonakalisa;
26 ajiwule phezu kwakhe uYehova wemikhosi iziniya, njengoko wabetha amaMidiyan eweni likaOrebhe; intonga yakhe ibe phezu kolwandle, ayiphakamise ngohlobo lwamaYiputa.

29 Baqabele enkalweni, bathi, Masilalise eGebha. Iyagubha iRama, isabile iGibheha yakwaSawule.
30 Khala ngezwi lakho, ntombi yaseGalim! Baza iindlebe, Layisha! Uha, Anatoti!
31 IMadema ibalekile; abemi baseGebhim bazisabisile iintsapho zabo.
32 Umisa eNobhi kwanamhlanje, ulingisa ngesandla sakhe entabeni yentombi enguZiyon, endulini yaseYerusalem.
33 Yabona, iNkosi, uYehova wemikhosi, iyawathi tyhobotyhobo amahlamvu ngokungcangcazelisayo, namade aphezulu axakaxwe, naphakamileyo athotywe;

28 Ngomnyaka wokufa kokumkani onguAhazi kwabakho esi sihlabo sithi:

7 Ngenxa yoko intwana ebisele, ababeyenzile, ababeyiqwebile, bayayithwala bayiweze esihlanjeni semingculuba.
8 Kuba isikhalo siwuzungulezile umda wakwaMowabhi; ukubhomboloza kwakhe kwesa e-Eglayim, kwesa naseBhere-elim ukubhomboloza kwakhe.
9 Kuba amanzi aseDimon azele ligazi; ngokuba iDimon ndiyimisela ezinye izinto ezimbi; abasindileyo bakwaMowabhi nabaseleyo emhlabeni ndibamisela ingonyama.

2 Kuba njengeentaka eziphekuziweyo, njengendlu yentaka esuselweyo, aya kuba njalo amagxamesi akwaMowabhi emazibukweni aseArnon, esithi,
3 Siphe iqhinga, yahlula; misa isithunzi sakho sibe njengobusuku emini enkulu; fihla abagxothiweyo, musa ukumncetheza obhadubhadulayo.
4 Mabaphambukele kuwe abagxothiweyo bam; ube lisithe kuye uMowabhi phambi kombhuqi; ngokuba umkhamangi ugqibele, umbhuqi uphelile, abanyashi batshatyalalisiwe ezweni.
5 Kuya kuzinziswa itrone ngenceba, kuhlale phezu kwayo onenyaniso, ententeni kaDavide: umgwebi okhathalele okusesikweni, okhawulezayo ukulungisa.
6 Silivile ikratshi likaMowabhi, ikratshi elikhulu. Hayi, ukukratsha kwakhe! Hayi, ikratshi lakhe nokuphuphuma komsindo wakhe, ukuphololoza kwakhe into engeyiyo!
7 Ngako oko uMowabhi uya kubhomboloza ngenxa kaMowabhi; bonke bephela baya kubhomboloza; niya kunkwinizela izicumba zeerasintyisi zaseKir-hareshete, nithe dakumba kanye.

9 Ngenxa yoko ndiyawulilela ngokulila kweYazere umdiliya waseSibhema; ndikunyakamisa ngeenyembezi zam, Heshbhon, nawe Elale, ngokuba ukuvunwa kweziqhamo zakho nokuvunwa kweediliya zakho kufikelwe ngamayeyeye.
10 Isukile imivuyo nemigcobo entsimini echumayo; akusamemelelwa ezidiliyeni, akusadunywa nokudunywa; umxovuli akasaxovuli newayini emkhombeni; ndiwaphelisile amayeyeye.
11 Ngenxa yoko izibilini zam ziyahlokoma njengohadi ngoMowabhi, nento ephakathi kwam ngeKir-beres.
12 Kuya kuthi, xa athe wabonakala, xa athe wazidinisa uMowabhi esigangeni, wangena engcweleni yakhe ukuba athandaze, asuke angabi nakuthini.
13 Lilo elo ilizwi, awalithethayo uYehova ngoMowabhi kwanini.
14 Kaloku ke uYehova uthetha esithi, Ngeminyaka emithathu, njengeminyaka yomqeshwa, buya kucukucezwa ubuqaqawuli bukaMowabhi, naloo ngxokolo yonke eninzi, amasalela abe mancinane, abe mbalwa, angabi makhulu.

18 Kuya kuthi, othe walibaleka ilizwi elinkwantyisayo, eyele emgongxweni; othe wenyuka waphuma emgongxweni, abanjiswe sisibatha; ngokuba iingcango zaphezulu zivulekile, zanyikima iziseko zehlabathi.
19 Liyavikiveka livikiveke ihlabathi; liyacandeka licandeke ihlabathi; liyashukuma lishukume ihlabathi; liyatalasa ihlabathi njengenxila;
20 liyajinga njengomandlalo oxhonyiweyo; ukreqo lwalo lunzima phezu kwalo; liyawa, lingabuyi livuke.
21 Kuya kuthi ngaloo mini, awuvulele uYehova umkhosi wabaphezulu, nokumkani behlabathi ehlabathini;
22 bahlanganiswe behlanganiswa njengamakhonkxwa emhadini, bavalelwe entolongweni, bavelelwe kwakuba yimihla emininzi.
23 Iya kuba neentloni inyanga, lidane ilanga, xa uYehova wemikhosi angukumkani entabeni yeZiyon, naseYerusalem, naphambi kwamadoda akhe amakhulu, ngobuqaqawuli.

1 Yehova, unguThixo wam; ndiya kukuphakamisa, ndiya kubulela kwigama lakho; ngokuba wenze imisebenzi ebalulekileyo, amacebo akho kwakude, ukunyaniseka, inyaniso.
2 Ngokuba umzi uwenze walinxuwa; inqaba enqatyisiweyo yangumwewe; uxande olude lwabasemzini alwaba mzi, ungakhiwa naphakade.
3 Ngenxa yoko baya kukuzukisa abantu abanengcwangu, ikoyike imizi yeentlanga ezingcangcazelisayo.
4 Ngokuba waba ligwiba kwisisweli, igwiba kwihlwempu ekubandezelweni kwalo, ihlathi esiphangweni, umthunzi lakubalela, xa ukufutha kwabangcangcazelisayo kwaba njengesiphango eludongeni.
5 Njengokubalela emqwebedwini, udambise ingxolo yabasemzini; njengokudanjiswa kokubalela lithunzi lelifu, yathotywa ngokunjalo ingoma yabangcangcazelisayo.
6 UYehova wemikhosi uya kuzenzela zonke izizwe isidlo sezinto ezityebileyo kule ntaba, isidlo sewayini egcinwe ngeentsipho, sezinto ezityebileyo ezinomongo, sewayini egcinwe ngeentsipho, yaza yahluzwa;

9 Kuya kuthiwa ngaloo mini, Yabona, lo nguThixo wethu; besithembele kuye, ukuba asisindise; nguYehova lo besithembele kuye; masigcobe, sivuye ngosindiso lwakhe.
10 Ngokuba isandla sikaYehova siya kuhlala phezu kwale ntaba, anyathelwe amaMowabhi endaweni yawo, njengokunyathelwa komququ emanzini omgquba.
11 Aya kuzaneka izandla zawo emthonyameni wawo, njengokuba indadi izaneka izandla ukuba idade; ke uYehova uya kulithoba ikratshi lawo, kunye nezigcaliselo zezandla zawo.
12 Wozisibekekisa iindonga zakho ezinqabileyo eziphakamileyo, azigungxule, ade azifikise emhlabeni, eluthulini.

2 Vulani amasango, lungene uhlanga olunobulungisa, olugcine ukuthembeka.
3 Intliziyo ezimasekileyo uyayilondoloza, ixole ixolile; ngokuba ikholose ngawe.

7 Umendo wamalungisa ulungelelene; wena uyawulinganisela umkhondo wamalungisa, ulungelelane.

11 Yehova, sibe siphakamile isandla sakho, ababona; ke baya kulibona ikhwele lakho ngenxa yabantu, badane; ewe, umlilo mawubadle ababandezeli bakho.

14 Abafileyo abo abasayi kuba saphila; abangasekhoyo abo abasayi kuba savuka; ngoko ke ubavelele wabatshabalalisa, wakwenza kwadaka konke ukukhunjulwa kwabo.
15 Ulwandisile uhlanga, Yehova, ulwandisile uhlanga; uzizukisile; uzikhwelelisele kude iziphelo zelizwe.

20 Hambani, bantu bam, ningene ezingontsini zenu, nivale iingcango zenu ngasemva kwenu, nizimele umzuzwana, kude kudlule ukubhavuma.
21 Kuba, yabona, uYehova uphuma endaweni yakhe, ukuze abuvelele kubo ubugwenxa babemi behlabathi; ihlabathi lowatyhila amagazi alo, lingabi sabaselela ababuleweyo balo.

5 Okanye mababambelele egwibeni lam, baxolelane nam, ewe, baxolelane nam.
6 Ngezayo imihla uYakobi uya kwendelisela iingcambu, atyatyambe adubule uSirayeli, balizalise lonke elimiweyo ngeziqhamo.

8 Ekumaleni wabambana naye, walinganisela, wakha uluhlu, wamgxotha ngomoya wakhe owomeleleyo ngemini yomoya wasempumalanga.
9 Ngako oko ubugwenxa bukaYakobi buya kucanyagushelwa ngale nto; isiqhamo sonke sokususa isono sakhe soba sesi sokuthi, awenze onke amatye esibingelelo abe njengamatye ekalika ankumenkume, bangavuki ooAshera nezithixo zelanga.

1 Yaha ke, isithsaba sekratshi samanxila akwaEfrayim, nentyantyambo ebunayo yamakhazikhazi esihombo sakhe, esemantloko omfula ochumayo wababuleweyo yiwayini!
2 Yabona, iNkosi inento eyomeleleyo, ekhaliphileyo, njengesiphango sesichotho, isaqhwithi esibhubhisayo; njengesiphango esimanzi anamandla akhukulayo, iya kunqumela emhlabeni ngesandla.
3 Siya kunyashwa ngeenyawo isithsaba sekratshi samanxila akwaEfrayim.
4 Intyantyambo ebunayo yamakhazikhazi esihombo sakhe, esemantloko omfula ochumayo, yoba njengekhiwane elilikhikhizela, kungekabi sehlotyeni; athi olibonileyo alibone, aliginye esaliphethe ngesandla.
5 Ngaloo mini uYehova wemikhosi uya kuba sisithsaba esimakhazikhazi, nesangqawe sokuhomba kumasalela abantu bakhe;
6 abe ngumoya wesiko kwabahleli esihlalweni sokugweba, nobugorha kwababuyisela imfazwe esangweni.
7 Kwanaba ke bayotywe yiwayini, bayahexa sisiselo esinxilisayo; umbingeleli nomprofeti bayotywe sisiselo esinxilisayo, baginywe yiwayini, bayahexa sisiselo esinxilisayo; bayotyiwe bebona imibono, bayagexa begweba ityala.
8 Kuba zonke izithebe zizele ngumhlanzo oyintshontsho; akukho ndawo ingenawo.
9 Bathi, Uya kuyala bani na ukuba azi? aqondise bani na udaba? Abalunyulweyo emasini? abancothulweyo ebeleni?
10 Kuba umthetho uza phezu komthetho, umthetho phezu komthetho; ummiselo phezu kommiselo, ummiselo phezu kommiselo; intwana apha, intwana phaya.
11 Inene, uya kuthetha ngentetho ethintithayo nangalulwimi lumbi kwaba bantu;
12 watshoyo kubo ukuthi, Nantsi indawo yokuphumla, phumzani abatyhafileyo; nantsi indawo yokunyhamnyheka; basuka abavuma ukuva.
13 Ngoko ke ilizwi likaYehova loba ngumthetho phezu komthetho kubo, umthetho phezu komthetho; ngummiselo phezu kommiselo, ummiselo phezu kommiselo; intwana apha, intwana phaya: ukuze baye bakhubeke, bawe ngomva, baphuke, barhintyelwe, babanjiswe.
14 Ngako oko liveni ilizwi likaYehova, madoda agxekayo, balawuli baba bantu baseYerusalem.
15 Ngokuba nisithi, Sinqophisene nokufa, sivumelene nelabafileyo; isibetho esingumkhukula, xa singenelayo, asiyi kufika kuthi, kuba amanga siwenze ihlathi lethu, sasithela ngobuxoki.
16 Ngako oko itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Yabona, ndiseke eZiyon ilitye, ilitye locikido, ilitye elinqabileyo lembombo, loseko olusekiweyo. Okholiweyo akayi kungxama.
17 Isiko ndolenza intambo yokulinganisa, ubulungisa ndibenze ilothe yokulungelelanisa; isichotho siya kumka nalo ihlathi lamanga, amanzi ayikhukulise indawo yokusithela.
18 Kuya kucinywa ukunqophisana kwenu nokufa, kungemi ukuvumelana kwenu nelabafileyo; isibetho esingumkhukula, xa singenelayo, sonenza nibe yinto egqushiweyo.
19 Oku kungenela singenelayo, siya kunisusa; ngokuba imiso ngemiso siya kuningenela, imini nobusuku; kuthi ukuqonda udaba kube kukuhlasimla kodwa.
20 Inene, umandlalo mfutshane, akukho kunaba; nesigubungelo sincinane, ukuba azisongele kuso.
21 Ngokuba uya kusuk’ eme uYehova, njengasentabeni yePeratsim; uya kuguguma, njengasentilini yeGibheyon; ukuba enze isenzo sakhe, isenzo sakhe esisodwa, ukuba asebenze umsebenzi wakhe, umsebenzi wakhe ongaqhelekileyo.
22 Kaloku ke musani ukugxeka, hleze kuqiniselwe ukubotshelelwa kwenu; ngokokuba isiphelo esiya kulifikela ilizwe lonke sisesimisiweyo ke sagqitywa; ndisivile eNkosini, uYehova wemikhosi.
23 Libekeleni indlebe nilive ilizwi lam; yibazeleni indlebe niyive intetho yam.
24 Umlimi ulima iimini ezi zonke na, ukuba ahlwayele? anqike aqwakanise umhlaba wakhe na?
25 Akathi na, akuba ebulungelelanisile ubuso bawo, asasaze idile, agcwayele ikumin, akrozise ingqolowa, nerhasi endaweni ephawuliweyo, nespelete ngasemdeni wayo?
26 Umqeqeshile ngokwesiko uThixo wakhe, wamyala.
27 Kuba idile ayisizilwa ngempahla yokusizila, ayiqengqelwa ngevili yenqwelo ikumin; itsinwa ngoswazi idile, nekumin ngentonga.
28 Ingqolowa ikhe ityunyuzwe na? Hayi, akahlali eyisizila, agoqozise ivili yenqwelo yakhe namahashe akhe phezu kwayo; akayityumzi.
29 Nale nto iphuma kuYehova wemikhosi; omacebo angummangaliso, obulumko butshatsheleyo.

2 Ndiya kuyicutha ke iAriyeli, kubekho ukuncwina noncwino, ibe njengeAriyeli ke leyo kum.
3 Ndiya kukurhawula, ndikungqinge ngenqaba, ndikumisele iintango zokukungqinga;
4 uya kugungxulelwa phantsi, uthethe usemhlabeni, ukuthetha kwakho kudambe, kuvela eluthulini; izwi lakho liphume emhlabeni njengeloneshologu, ukuthetha kwakho kudumzele eluthulini.
5 Ingxokolo yabakungenelayo iya kuba njengothuli olucolekileyo, ingxokolo yabakungcangcazelisayo ibe njengomququ ophephukayo; ibekho le nto ngephanyazo nangesiquphe.
6 Kuphuma kuYehova wemikhosi ukuvelelwa kwayo ngeendudumo nangonyikimo lwehlabathi, nesandi esikhulu; ngesaqhwithi nomoya ovuthuzayo, nokulenya komlilo otshisayo.
7 Yoba njengephupha, njengombono wasebusuku, ingxokolo yeentlanga zonke eziyiphumela umkhosi iAriyeli; zonke eziyiphumela umkhosi, yona nemboniselo yayo, eziyicuthayo.

9 Zilazilani ningakhulumi; zimfamekiseni nibe ziimfama. Bayanxila kungengawayini, bayatalasa kungengasiselo sinxilisayo.
10 Ngokuba uYehova uthulule phezu kwenu umoya wobuthongo obukhulu, wawabopha amehlo enu, abaprofeti; nabaziintloko benu, iimboni zenu, uzigubungele.

12 incwadi inikwe ongakwaziyo ukuyifunda, kuthiwe, Khawulese apha; athi, Andikwazi ukuyifunda incwadi.
13 Yathi iNkosi, Ngenxa enokuba aba bantu besondela kum ngomlomo wabo, bendizukisa ngemilebe yomlomo wabo, intliziyo yabo beyikhwelelisele kude kum, nokundoyika kwabo kungumthetho wabantu abawufunda nje kodwa:
14 ngako oko, yabona, ndiya kuphinda ndibaphathe aba bantu ngokubalulekileyo, kubaluleke, kumangaliseke; butshone ubulumko bezilumko zabo, isithele ingqondo yeengqondi zabo.
15 Yeha ke abangxokayo, besithelisa iqhinga labo kuYehova, zibe semnyameni izenzo zabo: bathi, Ngubani na osibonayo? ngubani na osaziyo?
16 Hayi, ukuphenduka kwenu! Kuya kuthiwa umbumbi unjengodongwe na? into eyenziweyo ithi na kumenzi wayo, Akandenzanga? into ebunjiweyo ithi na kumbumbi wayo, Akaqondi?
17 Awusemncinane na umzuzwana, ukuze iLebhanon ibuye ibe yintsimi echumayo, intsimi echumayo kuthiwe lihlathi?
18 Kuya kuthi ngaloo mini izithulu ziweve amazwi encwadi, amehlo eemfama abone esithokothokweni nasemnyameni.
19 Abalulamileyo baya kukwandisa ukuvuya ngoYehova, abangamahlwempu eluntwini bagcobe ngoyiNgcwele kaSirayeli;
20 ngokuba esusiwe umngcangcazelisi, ephelile umgxeki, benqunyulwe bonke abaphaphela ubutshinga;
21 abamenza umoni umntu ngenxa yelizwi eli, bamthiyele owohlwayayo esangweni, balisunduze ilungisa ngochuku.
22 Ngako oko utsho uYehova kwindlu kaYakobi, lowo wamkhululayo uAbraham, ukuthi, Ngoku uYakobi akayi kudana, ngoku ubuso bakhe abuyi kuba luthuthu.
23 Ngokuba ekuboneni kwakhe, ekuboneni kwabantwana bakhe, isenzo sezandla zam phakathi kwabo, baya kulingcwalisa igama lam, bamngcwalise oyiNgcwele kaYakobi, bangcangcazele phambi koThixo kaSirayeli.

11 tyekani endleleni, yithini gu bucala emendweni; menzeni aphele ebusweni bethu oyiNgcwele kaSirayeli.

14 uya kuyiqhekeza njengokuqhekeka komphanda wombumbi, wakuqotywa ungayekwa, kungafumaneki ekuqotyweni kwawo negophe lokuthabatha umlilo eziko, nelokukha amanzi equleni.
15 Ngokuba itsho iNkosi, uYehova oyiNgcwele kaSirayeli, ukuthi, Beniya kusindiswa kukubuya nakukuphumla; ebengabakhoyo amandla enu ngokuzola nangokukholosa; nasuka anavuma.
16 Ke nathi, Hayi, siya kubaleka ngamahashe; niya kubaleka kambe. Nathi, Siya kukhwela kwiimbaleki; ngenxa yoko baya kuba namendu abanisukelayo.
17 Niya kubaleka niliwaka, ekhalime emnye; bekhalime bebahlanu, nibaleke nide nisale njengomtshanyane encotsheni yentaba, nanjengebhanile endulini.
18 Ngako oko uYehova uya kukha alinde, ukuze anibabale; ngako oko uya kukha akhwelele phezulu, ukuze abe nemfesane kuni; ngokuba nguThixo wogwebo uYehova; hayi, uyolo lwabo bonke abalindele kuye!
19 Ngokuba abantu aba baya kuhlala eZiyon, eYerusalem; aniyi kuba sabuya nilile; uya kunibabala ngenene ekuvakaleni kokukhala kwenu; akukuva, uya kusabela.
20 INkosi iya kuninika isonka sobandezelweyo namanzi oxiniweyo, bangabi sazimela abayali bakho, amehlo akho esababona abayali bakho;
21 iindlebe zakho zive ilizwi ngasemva kwakho, lisithi, Nantsi indlela; hambani ngayo, nokuba nisinga ekunene, nokuba nisinga ekhohlo.
22 Nowenza inqambi umaleko wemifanekiso yenu eqingqiweyo yesilivere, nesingxobo semifanekiso yenu etyhidiweyo yegolide; niya kuyichithachitha njengesishuba; uya kuthi kuyo, Khwelela umke apha.
23 INkosi yoyinika imvula imbewu yakho, owuhlwayela ngayo umhlaba; nesonka songeniselo lomhlaba sityebe, sibe namafutha; imfuyo yakho iya kudla ngaloo mini emadlelweni abanzi.
24 Iinkomo namaesile amatsha asebenza umhlaba, aya kudla umtywakaniselo onetyuwa, oweliweyo ngomnyazi nefolokhwe yokwela.
25 Phezu kweentaba zonke ezinde naphezu kweenduli zonke eziphakamileyo yoba yimijelo, yimisinga yamanzi, ngemini yembulalo enkulu, ekuweni kweenqaba ezinde.
26 Ukukhanya kwenyanga kuya kuba njengokukhanya kwelanga, nokukhanya kwelanga kube kasixhenxe njengokukhanya kweemini ezisixhenxe, ngemini yokubopha kukaYehova ukwaphuka kwabantu bakhe, apholise ukuphalusa kokubetha kwakhe.
27 Yabona, igama likaYehova liyeza, livela kude, uvutha umsindo wakhe, kuthe shinyi umsi: umlomo wakhe ulephuza amagwebu, ulwimi lwakhe lunjengomlilo otshisayo.
28 Ukufutha kwakhe kunjengomlambo okhukulayo, obetha emqaleni, ukuze azihluze iintlanga ngentluzo yokuziphanzisa, umkhala olahlekisayo ube semihlathini yezizwe.
29 Niya kuba nengoma enjengeyobusuku bokungcwaliswa komthendeleko, novuyo lwentliziyo lube njengabahamba bebetha ugwali, ukuya entabeni kaYehova, eliweni likaSirayeli.
30 Uya kulivakalisa uYehova izwi lakhe elinendili, akubonakalise ukuhla kwengalo yakhe kunokujala ngumsindo, nokulenya komlilo otshisayo, nokuphalazeka kwelifu, nesiphango, namatye esichotho.
31 Kuba uAsiriya uya kuqhiphuka umbilini lilizwi likaYehova, ekubetheni kwakhe ngentonga.
32 Kuya kuthi konke ukuhamba koswazi lommiselo, aluhlisayo uYehova phezu kwakhe, kube neengqongqo neehadi, kusiliwa naye imfazwe, kujinga ingalo.
33 Kuba kukade icangcisiwe, ilungisiwe iTofete, ibe ke ilungiselwe ukumkani; yenziwa yanzulu, yabanzi; igoqo layo linomlilo neenkuni ezininzi; ukuphefumla kukaYehova kuliphemba njengomlambo wesulfure.

5 Njengeentaka zindanda, uya kwenjenjalo uYehova wemikhosi ukuyikhusela iYerusalem, eyikhusela, eyihlangula, eyiconga, eyisiza.
6 Buyelani kulowo nimkileyo kuye ngokunzulu, nyana bakaSirayeli.
7 Ngokuba ngaloo mini baya kucekisa elowo izithixo zakhe zesilivere ezingeni, nezegolide ezingeni, ezinenzele zona izandla zenu, ukuba none ngazo.
8 Wowa uAsiriya likrele elingelelandoda, limdle ikrele elingelelamntu, asabe phambi kwekrele, amadodana akhe afakwe uviko.
9 Ingxondorha yakhe yodlula imke ngokunxunguphala, baqhiphuke umbilini abathetheli bakhe, bemke kwibhanile; utsho uYehova, omlilo useZiyon, oziko liseYerusalem.

32 Ngokuba kuya kuphuma eYerusalem abaseleyo nabasindileyo entabeni yeZiyon. Ubukhwele bukaYehova wemikhosi buya kukwenza oko.
33 Ngako oko utsho uYehova ngokubhekisele kukumkani waseAsiriya, ukuthi, Akayi kungena kulo mzi, akayi kutola notolo kuwo, akayi kuwuzela enengweletshetshe, akayi kuwufumbela ludonga lakungqinga.
34 Uya kubuya ngendlela aweza ngayo; akasayi kungena kulo mzi; utsho uYehova.
35 Ndiya kuwukhusela lo mzi, ndiwusindise ngenxa yam, nangenxa kaDavide, umkhonzi wam.

8 Uyabona, ndiyasibuyisa isithunzi sezinyuko, esehlayo esinyukweni sika-Ahazi ngelanga, ndisibuyisa umva izinyuko ezilishumi. Labuya ke ilanga izinyuko ezilishumi ezinyukweni elibe lihlile ngazo.
9 Umbhalo kaHezekiya ukumkani wakwaYuda, oko ebesifa, waza waphila:
10 Ndathi mna, yakubon’ ukuba ithe cwaka imihla yam, mandimke ndiye emasangweni elabafileyo; Ndivelelwe, ndayihluthwa eseleyo iminyaka yam.
11 Ndathi, Andiyi kumbona uYa, uYa ezweni labaphilileyo; Andiyi kuba samkhangela umntu, ndikubemi belabangasekhoyo.
12 Umnquba wam uza kuncothulwa, ufuduswe umke kum, njengentente yomalusi; Ndibusongile njengomluki ubomi bam; unditsheca ezintsingeni. Uya kundigqibela ngosuku olunye.
13 Ndazizolisa kwada kwasa; njengengonyama, wenjenjalo ukuwaphula onke amathambo am. Uya kundigqibela ngosuku olunye.
14 Njengehlankomo, njengendwe, ndenjenjalo ukukrikriza, Ndalila njengevukuthu; aphela amehlo am kukubheka phezulu: Yehova, ndifingekile, ndimele.
15 Ndothini na ukubulela, ethethile nje kum, wenza nokwenza? Mandicothoze yonke iminyaka yam eya kuza phezu kobukrakra bomphefumlo wam.
16 Nkosi yam, babuya baphile zezo zinto abantu, Bukuzo kanye ubomi bomoya wam: Wondiphilisa ke, ndidlise ubomi.
17 Yabona, baba lusindiso kum ubukrakra obukhulu. Wena ke ngokundithanda, wawurhola umphefumlo wam esihogweni sokonakala; Ngokuba izono zam uzilahlile emva komhlana wakho.
18 Kuba elabafileyo alinakukuncoma, ukufa akunakukudumisa; Abahla baye emhadini abakulindele ukunyanisa kwakho.
19 Ophilileyo, ophilileyo nguye owokuncoma, njengam nje namhla. Uyise uya kukwazisa ukunyanisa kwakho koonyana.
20 UYehova uza kundisindisa; Ngoko ke sozibetha iihadi zethu Yonke imihla yobomi bethu, endlwini kaYehova.
21 Wathi uIsaya, mabathabathe isicumba samakhiwane, basibeke ethumbeni, ukuze aphile.
22 Wathi uHezekiya, Uyintoni na umqondiso wokuba ndiya kunyuka ndiye endlwini kaYehova?

1 Ngelo xesha uMerodaki-bhaladan, unyana kaBhaladan, ukumkani waseBhabheli, wathumela incwadi nomnikelo kuHezekiya; kuba wayevile ukuba ubesifa, wabuya wachacha.
2 Wavuya uHezekiya ngabo, wababonisa indlu yakhe yezinto aziqwebileyo: isilivere, negolide, nobulawu, neoli entle, nendlu yonke yezixhobo zakhe, nento yonke ebikho ebuncwaneni bakhe. Akwabakho nto endlwini yakhe nasekulawuleni kwakhe konke, angababonisanga yona uHezekiya.
3 Waya uIsaya umprofeti kukumkani uHezekiya, wathi kuye, Atheni na la madoda? avele ngaphi na ukuza kuwe? Wathi uHezekiya, Avele ezweni elikude eBhabheli, esiza kum.
4 Wathi ke, Abone ntoni na endlwini yakho? Wathi uHezekiya, Abone into yonke esendlwini yam; akubangakho nto ndingababonisanga yona ebuncwaneni bam.
5 Wathi uIsaya kuHezekiya, Live ke ilizwi likaYehova wemikhosi.

1 Thuthuzelani, bathuthuzeleni abantu bam, utsho uThixo wenu.
2 Thethani kakuhle neYerusalem, nimemeze kuyo, nithi kuzalisekile ukuphuma kwayo umkhosi; nithi, buhlawulelwe ubugwenxa bayo; nithi, yamkeliswe esandleni sikaYehova okuphindwe kabini kwizono zayo zonke.
3 Yivani omemezayo, esithi, Yigeceni entlango indlela kaYehova; tyenenezelani uThixo wethu umendo enkqantosini.
4 Yonke imifula mayinyuswe, zonke iintaba neenduli zigungxulwe; iindawo ezimagqagala zibe zithabazi, nemixawuka ibe ziintili;
5 butyhileke ubuqaqawuli bukaYehova, ibubone inyama yonke kunye; ngokuba uthethile umlomo kaYehova.
6 Ilizwi lothile lathi, Memeza. Wathi yena, Ndimemeze ntoni na? Yithi, Yonke inyama ibutyani, bonke ubuhle bayo bunjengentyantyambo yasendle.
7 Buyoma utyani, iyabuna intyantyambo; ngokuba umoya kaYehova uvuthuza kuyo; inene, abantu babutyani.
8 Buyoma utyani, iyabuna intyantyambo; ke lona ilizwi likaThixo wethu liya kuma ngonaphakade.
9 Wena Ziyon, mshumayeli weendaba ezilungileyo, nyuka uye entabeni ephakamileyo; wena Yerusalem, mshumayeli weendaba ezilungileyo, liphakamise ngamandla ilizwi lakho, phakamisa ungoyiki. Yithi kwimizi yakwaYuda, Nanko uThixo wenu!
10 Uyabona, iNkosi uYehova iya kuza, ingowomeleleyo, ingalo yayo iyilawulela. Uyabona, umvuzo wayo inawo, nomsebenzi wayo uphambi kwayo.
11 Iya kuwalusa umhlambi wayo njengomalusi; iya kuwabutha ngeengalo zayo amatakane, iwathwale ngesifuba sayo, izithundeze ezanyisayo.
12 Ngubani na olinganise amanzi la entendeni yesandla sakhe, walilungisa izulu ngomoluko weminwe, walukhongozela uthuli lomhlaba ngomlinganiselo, wazilinganisa iintaba ngesilinganiso, neenduli ngesikali?
13 Ngubani na owalungisa uMoya kaYehova, waba yindoda emcebisayo, wamazisa?
14 Wacebisana nabani na owamqondisayo, wamfundisa umendo wesiko, wamfundisa ukwazi, wamazisa indlela yokuqonda?
15 Yabona, iintlanga zibalelwa ekubeni zinjengethontsi emphandeni, njengesuntswana esikalini. Yabona, iziqithi zinjengothuli oluqhaphukayo.
16 ILebhanon ayilingene kubaswa, neenyamakazi zayo azilingene kubalidini elinyukayo.
17 Zonke iintlanga zinjengento engento phambi kwakhe; kuye zibalelwa ekuthini asizanto, ziluchuku.
18 Ningamfanekisa ke nabani na uThixo, ninxulumise mfanekiselo mni na naye?
19 Umfanekiso oqingqiweyo utyhidwa yingcibi, awaleke ngegolide umnyibilikisi, awunyibilikisele imixokelelwane yesilivere.
20 Okhohliweyo ngumrhumo ukhetha umthi ongenakubola; uzifunela ingcibi eyaziyo, ukuba imlungisele umfanekiso oqingqiweyo ongayi kushukuma.
21 Anazi na? aniva na? anixelelwanga na kwasentloko? aniqondanga na kwasekusekweni kwehlabathi?
22 Ngulo uhlala phezu kwesazinge sehlabathi, abemi balo ke benjengemicikwane; ulowaneka izulu njengeqhiya eliyasuyasu, walitwabulula njengentente yokuhlala;
23 ulozenza izidwangube ukuba zingabi nto, abagwebi behlabathi abenze babe luchuku.
24 Bengekathi ukutyalwa, bengekathi ukuhlwayelwa, singekathi ukwendelisela iingcambu emhlabeni isiphunzi sabo, uselebafuthela bome, ubathabathe umoya ovuthuzayo njengomququ.
25 Niya kundifanisa nabani na, ndilingane naye? utsho oyiNgcwele.
26 Phakamiselani amehlo enu phezulu, nibone: ngubani na owadala ezi zinto? Ngulokhupha umkhosi wazo ngamaqela, uzibiza zonke ziphela ngamagama, ngenxa yobukhu bokomelela, ekhaliphile ngamandla; akusali nanye.
27 Yini na ukuba uthi, Yakobi—uthethe uthi, Sirayeli— Indlela yam isithele kuYehova, nebango lam lidlule kuThixo wam?
28 Akwazi na? akuvanga na, ukuba uThixo ongunaphakade nguYehova, tyhafi, akadinwa; ayinakugocwagocwa ingqondo yakhe.
29 Umnika otyhafileyo amandla, ongenakomelela amandisele ukuqina.
30 Namadodana angatyhafa adinwe, nabafana bakhubeke bawe;
31 ke bona abathembele kuYehova baya kuhlaziyeka emandleni; banyuke ngamaphiko njengeenkozi. Baya kugidima bangadinwa, bahambe bangatyhafi.

12 Uya kuwafuna, ungawafumani, amadoda aphikisana nawe; aya kuba yinto engento, engekhoyo, amadoda alwa nawe.
13 Ngokuba mna, Yehova Thixo wakho, ndiya kusibamba isandla sakho sokunene; ndingothi kuwe, Musa ukoyika, ndiya kukunceda mna.
14 Musa ukoyika, mbungu Yakobi, bantu bambalwa bakwaSirayeli; ndiya kukunceda mna; utsho uYehova, uMkhululi wakho oyiNgcwele kaSirayeli.
15 Yabona, ndikwenze isisizilo esibukhali esitsha, esintlangothi mbini; uya kuzi bhula iintaba uzicole, iinduli uzixelise umququ.
16 Uya kuzela, umoya uzitha bathe, umoya ovuthuzayo uziphangalalise; ke wena ugcobe ngoYehova, uqhayise ngoyiNgcwele kaSirayeli.
17 Ke abaziintsizana nabangamahlwempu baya kufuna amanzi, angabikho, ulwimi lwabo lome linxano; mna Yehova ndiya kubaphendula; mna, Thixo kaSirayeli, andiyi kubashiya.
18 Ndiya kuyivula imilambo eluqayini, nemithombo phakathi kweentili, ndenze intlango ibe lidike elinamanzi, nomhlaba ongumqwebedu ube ziindawo eziphuma amanzi.
19 Ndiya kutyala entlango imisedare, nemingampunzi, nemimirtile, neminquma yasendle, ndimise enkqantosini imisipres, nemipleyini, nemigalagala, ndawonye;

21 Sondezani iindawo enibambene ngazo, utsho uYehova; zimiseni iziganeko zenu, utsho uKumkani kaYakobi.
22 Mabazizise, basixelele okuza kuhla; mabaxele izinto zangaphambili, ubunjani bazo, sizigqale ngeentliziyo, silazi ikamva lazo; nokuba zezizayo siviseni.
23 Xelani izinto ezizayo ngasemva, ukuze sazi ukuba ningoothixo; ewe, yenzani okulungileyo, nokuba kokubi, sikhwankqiswe, sibonisane ngako.

22 Ke bona ngabantu abaphangiweyo, abahluthiweyo, ababotshelelwe emingxunyeni bonke bephela, abafakwe ezintolongweni, baba lixhoba, akwabakho mhlanguli; baba ngabahluthiweyo, akwabakho uthi, Buyisa.

18 Ngokuba utsho uYehova, uMdali wezulu (nguye uThixo), uMenzi wehlabathi, uMseki walo, yena walizinzisayo (akalidalelanga ukuba kube senyanyeni, walibumba ukuba limiwe), ukuthi, NdinguYehova, akukho wumbi.
19 Andithethanga entsithelweni, endaweni emnyama yelizwe; anditshongo embewini kaYakobi ukuthi, Ndiquqeleni enyanyeni. Mna Yehova ndithetha ubulungisa, ndixela into ethe tye.
20 Buthani nize, sondelani kunye, nina basindileyo basezintlangeni: abanakwazi abathwali bomthi womfanekiso wabo oqinqiweyo, abathandazi bothixo ongasindisiyo.
21 Xelani, nifikise; ewe, mabacebisane kunye, ukuthi, Ngubani na owavisa oko kwabamandulo, owakuxelayo kwanini? Asindim na Yehova, ekungekho Thixo wumbi ingendim? UThixo onobulungisa, osindisayo, akakho ingendim.

13 Ubuqaqawuli beLebhanon buya kuza kuwe, umsipres nompleyini nomgalagala ndawonye, ukuze ihombe indawo yengcwele yam, ndiyizukise indawo yeenyawo zam.

15 Esikhundleni sokuba ubushiyiwe, uthiyiwe, akwabakho bani ucanda kuwe, ndiya kukwenza ke ingangamsha engunaphakade, imihlali yezizukulwana ngezizukulwana.
16 Uya kwanya amasi eentlanga, wanye ibele lokumkani, wazi ukuba mna Yehova ndinguMsindisi wakho, uMkhululi wakho, iMbalasane kaYakobi.
17 Esikhundleni sobhedu ndizisa igolide, esikhundleni sesinyithi ndizisa isilivere, esikhundleni semithi ubhedu, esikhundleni samatye isinyithi; isiveleli sakho ndisenze uxolo, abaphathi bakho ndibenze ubulungisa.
18 Akuyi kuba savakala lugonyamelo ezweni lakho, imbuqo nolwaphulo emideni yakho; iindonga zakho ukuzibiza wothi luSindiso, namasango akho uthi yiNdumiso.
19 Ilanga aliyi kuba saba sisikhanyiso kuwe emini, nenyanga ingakukhanyiseli, ukuze kube mhlophe kuwe; uYehova uya kuba sisikhanyiso esingunaphakade kuwe, uThixo wakho abe sisihombo sakho.

1 UMoya weNkosi uYehova uphezu kwam; ngenxa yokuba uYehova endithambisele ukuba ndishumayeze abalulamileyo iindaba ezilungileyo. Undithume ukubopha abantliziyo zaphukileyo, ukumemeza inkululeko kwabathinjiweyo, ukuvulwa kwamehlo kwabakhonkxiweyo;

3 ukubamisela abanesijwili baseZiyon, ukubanika isihombo sentloko esikhundleni sothuthu, ioli yemihlali esikhundleni sesijwili, ingubo yendumiso esikhundleni somoya odambayo; ukubizwa kwabo kuthiwe yimiterebhinti yobulungisa, isityalo sikaYehova sokuhomba.
4 Baya kwakha amanxuwa angunaphakade, bavuse iindawo ezichithakeleyo zangaphambili, bahlaziye imizi engamanxuwa, iindawo ezichithakeleyo zezizukulwana ngezizukulwana.
5 Baya kuma abasemzini, baluse imihlambi yenu, oonyana bezinye iintlanga babe ngabalimi bomhlaba wenu, nabezidiliya zenu.
6 Ke nina ukubizwa kwenu, kuya kuthiwa ningababingeleli bakaYehova; kuya kuthiwa kuni, ningabalungiseleli boThixo wethu; niya kudla ubutyebi beentlanga, nindolose ninozuko lwazo.

8 Kuba mna, Yehova, ndithanda okusesikweni, ndikuthiyile ukuphanga ngokugqwetha; ndibanika umvuzo womsebenzi wabo ngenyaniso; ndenza umnqophiso ongunaphakade nabo.
9 Iya kwaziwa imbewu yabo ezintlangeni, baziwe nabaphume ezibilinini zabo phakathi kwezizwe; bonke abababonayo baya kubazi ukuba bayimbewu ayisikeleleyo uYehova.
10 Ndinemihlali ndanemihlali ngoYehova, umphefumlo wam uya kugcoba ngoThixo wam; kuba endinxibe iingubo zosindiso, endithe wambu ngengubo yokwaleka yobulungisa, njengomyeni ononkontsho ngokombingeleli, nanjengomtshakazi evethe iimpahla zakhe.
11 Kuba njengoko ilizwe livelisa izilimo zalo, njengoko umyezo untshulisa intlwayelelo yawo, yenjenjalo iNkosi uYehova ukuntshulisa ubulungisa nendumiso phambi kweentlanga zonke.
