1 Yoo! Uhleli wodwa, umzi obantu baye bebaninzi; Obe umkhulu ezintlangeni Usuke waba njengomhlolokazi; umthethelikazi emazweni Usuke waba ngofakwa uviko.
2 Ulila elilile ebusuku, iinyembezi zakhe zisezidleleni zakhe; Akanamthuthuzeli kuzo zonke izithandane zakhe; Onke amakholwane akhe ammenezelele, Aba lutshaba kuye.
3 UYuda uye ekuthinjweni, ephuma ezintsizini nasezinkonzweni ezininzi; Yena uhleli ezintlangeni, akafumani kuphumla; Bonke abamsukelayo bamfikele ezingxingongweni.
4 Iindlela zaseZiyon zenza isijwili, ngokungabikho kwabaya emithendelekweni; Onke amasango ayo akanamntu, ababingeleli bayo bayancwina; Iintombi zayo zinosizi, yona ke kukrakra kuyo.
5 Ababandezeli bayo basuka bayintloko; iintshaba zayo zinobunqobo; Ngokuba uYehova uyenze yanosizi ngenxa yokreqo lwayo oluninzi; Abantwana bayo bemkile, bathinjiwe, baqhutywa ngumbandezeli.
6 Buphumile entombini enguZiyon bonke ubungangamsha bayo; Abathetheli bayo baba njengamaxhama angafumani dlelo, Ahamba engenamandla phambi komsukeli.
7 IYerusalem iyazikhumbula, ngemini yeentsizi zayo neyokudinga kwayo, Zonke izinto zayo ezinqwenelekayo ebinazo kwakwiimini zamandulo, Ekuweni kwabantu bayo esandleni sombandezeli, ingenamncedi; Ababandezeli bayo bayibona, bakuhleka ukucinywa kwayo.
8 IYerusalem asikuko nokuba yonile yona; ngenxa yoko yaba lubhorha; Bonke ababeyizukisa bayayicukuceza, ngokuba babone ubuze bayo; Nayo ngokwayo iyancwina, ibuye umva.
9 Ubunqambi bayo busezingutyeni zayo ezirhuqayo, ayilikhumbulelanga ikamva layo; Yehla ke ngokubalulekileyo; ayinamthuthuzeli; Ithi, Zikhangele, Yehova, iintsizi zam; ngokuba utshaba luzikhulisile.
10 Umbandezeli usolule isandla sakhe phezu kwezinto zayo zonke ezinqwenelekayo; Kuba ibona iintlanga zingene engcweleni yayo, Owawuwise umthetho wena, ukuba zingangeni ebandleni lakho.
11 Bonke abantu bayo bayancwina, befuna isonka; Barhole izinto zabo ezinqwenelekayo ngenxa yesonka, ukuze bawubuyise umphefumlo; Bona, Yehova, ukhangele, ukuba ndisuke ndacukucezeka.
12 Akunto na oku kuni nonke, nina nidlula ngendlela? Bhekani nibone, ukuba kukho na umvandedwa onjengomvandedwa wam, endiwenziweyo, Athe uYehova wandenza lusizi ngemini yokuvutha komsindo wakhe.
13 Engaphezulu, uthume umlilo emathanjeni am, wawanyathela; Uzanekele umnatha iinyawo zam, wandibuyisa umva; Undenze inxuwa, yonke imini ndityhafile.
14 Idyokhwe yezikreqo zam ibotshwe sisandla sakhe; Zibhijelene, zenyuka zaba semqaleni wam, zawakhubekisa amandla am; INkosi yam indinikele ezandleni zabo ndingenakumisa kubo.
15 INkosi yam izitshitshisile zonke iimbalasane zam eziphakathi kwam; Indimemele umthendeleko, ukuba yaphule amadodana am. INkosi yam ixovule inkazana enguYuda, ngokungathi kusesixovulweni sewayini.
16 Ngenxa yezo zinto ndiyalila; iliso lam, iliso lam lihla amanzi, Ngokuba ekude kum umthuthuzeli, umbuyisi womphefumlo wam; Baziimpanza abantwana bam, ngokuba utshaba lwam lundoyisile.
17 IZiyon iyazolula izandla zayo, ayinamthuthuzeli; UYehova ubawisele umthetho ngoYakobhi, ukuba ababandezeli bakhe bamngqonge: IYerusalem iyinto elubhorha phakathi kwabo.
18 Ulilungisa uYehova; ngokuba bendiphikise umlomo wakhe. Khanive, nonke zizwe, niwubone umvandedwa wam; Umthinjana wam namadodana am emke nokuthinjwa.
19 Ndibize izithandane zam, zandikhohlisa zona; Ababingeleli bam, namadoda amakhulu akwam, aphume umphefumlo phakathi komzi, Xa abezifunela ukudla, ukuba abuyise imiphefumlo yawo.
20 Khangela, Yehova, ngokuba ndibandezelekile; izibilini zam ziyabila; Intliziyo yam iphendukile phakathi kwam; ngokuba ndasuka ndaba ziinkani kuphela; Ngaphandle ikrele landihlutha abantwana, ngaphakathi kwakukufa kodwa.
21 Bandivile ukuba ndiyancwina; ndathi, Andinamthuthuzeli; Zonke iintshaba zam zibuvile ububi bam; zinemihlali, ngokuba oko kwenziwe nguwe. Uyayizisa imini oyimemileyo, ziya kuba njengam ke.
22 Mabufike phambi kwakho bonke ububi bazo, Uziphathe njengoko wandiphatha ngako ngenxa yezikreqo zam zonke; Ngokuba kuninzi ukuncwina kwam, nentliziyo yam ityhafile.

1 Yoo! Itheni na iNkosi yam ukuyisibekela kangaka ngomsindo wayo intombi enguZiyon? Isikhuphile ezulwini, yasikhahlela ehlabathini, isihombo sikaSirayeli, Ayasikhumbula isihlalo seenyawo zayo ngemini yomsindo wayo.
2 INkosi yam iwaginyile, ayawaconga, onke amakriwa akwaYakobi; Izigungxule ngokuphuphuma komsindo wayo iinqaba ezinkulu zentombi enguYuda; Yazizisa emhlabeni; Ibungcolisile ubukumkani nabathetheli babo.
3 Izixakazile ngokuvutha komsindo wayo zonke iimpondo zikaSirayeli; Isibuyise umva isandla sayo sokunene ebusweni botshaba; Yatshisa kwaYakobi njengomlilo olenyayo, odlayo ngeenxa zonke.

7 INkosi yam isihlambele isibingelelo sayo, ithe nethe kuyo ingcwele yayo, Izivingcelele esandleni sotshaba iindonga zeengxande zayo ezinde; Baxokozela endlwini kaYehova njengemini yomthendeleko.
8 UYehova ucinge ukonakalisa udonga lwentombi enguZiyon; Wolule ulutya lokulinganisela, akasibuyisa isandla sakhe ekuginyeni; Wenza ungqameko lomsele lwaba nesijwili, kwanodonga; zithokombisile kunye ezo zinto.
9 Amasango ayo atshonile emhlabeni; uyitshabalalisile, uyaphule imivalo yayo; Ukumkani wayo nabathetheli bayo basezintlangeni, akukho myalelo; Abaprofeti bayo abafumani mbono kuYehova.
10 Ahleli emhlabeni ethe cwaka amadoda amakhulu entombi enguZiyon; Azigalele ngomhlaba entloko, abhinqe ezirhwexayo; Uzithobele emhlabeni iintloko zawo umthinjana waseYerusalem.
11 Amehlo am aphela ziinyembezi, ziyabila izibilini zam, Isibindi sam siphalalele emhlabeni, ngenxa yokwaphuka kwentombi yabantu bakowethu, Ngokutyhafa kwabantwana, nabasemabeleni, ezitratweni zomzi.
12 Bamana ukuthi koonina, Iphi na ingqolowa newayini? Ekutyhafeni kwabo njengabangxwelerhiweyo ezitratweni zomzi, Ekuziphalazeni kwemiphefumlo yabo esifubeni sonina.
13 Ndikungqinele, ngantoni na? Ndikufanekise nantoni na, ntombi yaseYerusalem? Ndikulinganise nantoni na, ukuze ndikuthuthuzele, ntombindini iyintombi, inguZiyon? Ngokuba kukhulu ngangolwandle ukwaphuka kwakho; ngubani na onokukuphilisa?
14 Abaprofeti bakho bakubonele imibono yento engento nejavujavu; Ababutyhila ubugwenxa bakho, ukuba kubuyiswe ukuthinjwa kwakho; Bakubonele imibono ezizihlabo ezingezizo, nezokugxothwa.
15 Babetha izandla ngawe bonke abadlula ngendlela; Benza umsondlo, bahlunguzele iintloko ngentombi enguYerusalem, besithi, Ngulo mzi na, lo kuthiwa kuphela kwenzwakazi, yimihlali yehlabathi lonke?
16 Zonke iintshaba zakho zikwakhamisela umlomo; Zenza umsondlo, zitshixizela amazinyo; zithi, Siyiginyile; Inene, yiyo le imini ebe siyithembile; siyifumene, siyibonile.
17 Ukwenzile uYehova abekunkqangiyele; Ulizalisile ilizwi lakhe, abeliwisele umthetho kususela kwiimini zamandulo; Ugungxule, akaconga; Wenze lwakuvuyelela utshaba lwakho, Uphakamise uphondo lwababandezeli bakho.
18 Intliziyo yabo ikhala eNkosini yam; Ludonga lwentombi enguZiyon, mazihle iinyembezi njengomlambo imini nobusuku; Musa ukuyeka, malungaphezi ukhozo lweliso lakho.
19 Vuka, uhlahlambe ebusuku, ekuqalekeni kwemilindo; Yiphalaze njengamanzi intliziyo yakho ebusweni beNkosi; Ziphakamisele kuyo izandla zakho, ngenxa yomphefumlo wabantwana bakho, Abatyhafileyo kukulamba ekujikeni kwezitrato zonke.
