Isahluko 1

1 Ke kaloku, ngomnyaka wamashumi omathathu, ngenyanga yesine, ngolwesihlanu usuku enyangeni leyo, ndakubon’ ukuba ndiphakathi kwabathinjiweyo ngasemlanjeni oyiKebhare, avuleka amazulu, ndabona imibono kaThixo.
2 Ngolwesihlanu enyangeni leyo (ingumnyaka ke wesihlanu wokuthinjwa kokumkani uYehoyakin lowo),
3 kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kuHezekile unyana kaBhuzi, umbingeleli, ezweni lamaKaledi, ngasemlanjeni oyiKebhare; saba phezu kwakhe apho isandla sikaYehova.
4 Ndabona ke, nanko kusiza umoya ovuthuzayo, uvela ngasentla, unelifu elikhulu nomlilo obumbeneyo njengembumbulu, nobumhlophe obungeenxa zonke kulo, obuphuma ngaphakathi kwawo, bubonakala ngathi yigolide evuthiweyo emlilweni phakathi.
5 Ngaphakathi kwawo yimfano yezinto eziphilileyo ezine. Nantsi ke imbonakalo yazo: zibe zinemfano yomntu;
6 inye ibinobuso obune, inye kuzo apho ibinamaphiko amane.
7 Imilenze yazo ibiyimilenze ethe nkqo; umphantsi weenyawo ubunjengomphantsi wenqina lethole; zidangazela zibonakala ngathi lubhedu olubengezelisiweyo.
8 Zazinezandla zomntu ngaphantsi kwamaphiko azo emacaleni azo omane; zone ke zinobuso namaphiko;
9 amaphiko azo abehlangene, elaleyo nelaleyo; bezingajiki ekuhambeni kwazo, bezihamba, iyileyo iye kwicala elikhangelene nobuso bayo.
10 Imfano yobuso bazo ibe ibubuso bomntu; zinobuso bengonyama zone ngasekunene; zinobuso benkomo zone ngasekhohlo, zinobuso bokhozi zone;
11 ubuso bazo namaphiko azo abe ahlukene ngaphezulu; iyileyo inamabini ehlangene nawaleyo, namaphiko amabini ke egubungele imizimba yazo.
12 Zahamba ke, iyileyo yaya kwicala elikhangelene nobuso bayo; apho sukuba ubusiya khona umoya, zaya khona; azajika ekuhambeni kwazo.
13 Imfano yezinto eziphilileyo ezo, imbonakalo yazo, ibingathi ngamalahle omlilo abasiweyo; ibingathi yimbonakalo yezikhuni ezitshangazayo; wona wahambahamba phakathi kwezinto eziphilileyo ezo; umhlophe ke umlilo lowo, emlilweni kuphuma imibane.
14 Izinto eziphilileyo bezigidima zibuye, ngokokubonakala kokuphambaphamba kombane.
15 Ndazibona izinto eziphilileyo; nanko ke, kukho iivili emhlabeni, ecaleni kwezinto eziphilileyo, zinganye iivili kubuso ngobuso bazo obune.
16 Ukubonakala kweevili nokusetyenzwa kwazo kwakunjengembonakalo yekrizolite, zimfani-nye zone; ukubonakala kwazo nokusetyenzwa kwazo kungathi ivili ingaphakathi kwevili.
17 Ekuhambeni kwazo zaphambela kumacala azo omane; azajika ekuhambeni kwazo.
18 Iifeleni zazo beziphakamile, bezisoyikeka; iifeleni zazo bezizele ngamehlo ngeenxa zonke kuzo zone.
19 Zakuhamba izinto eziphilileyo, zahamba nazo iivili ecaleni lazo; zakusuka izinto eziphilileyo emhlabeni, zasuka nazo iivili.
20 Apho sukuba usiya khona umoya, zaya apho sukuba umoya ubusiya khona; zasuka iivili kunye nazo; ngokokuba umoya wezinto eziphilileyo ubukho ezivilini ezo.
21 Zakuhamba, zahamba nazo; zakuma, zema nazo; zakusuka emhlabeni, zasuka iivili kunye nazo; ngokokuba umoya wezinto eziphilileyo ubukho ezivilini ezo.
22 Naphezu kweentloko zezinto eziphilileyo bekukho into efana nesibhakabhaka, ngathi ngembonakalo yikristale eyoyikekayo, sanekiwe phezu kwentloko yazo ngaphezulu.
23 Ngaphantsi kwesibhakabhaka amaphiko ayethe tye, elo lasinga kwelo; iyileyo inamabini ayigubungeleyo, iyileyo inamabini ayigubungeleyo emzimbeni.
24 Ndeva ke isandi samaphiko azo, sinjengesandi samanzi amaninzi, ngathi lilizwi loSomandla, ekuhambeni kwazo; izwi elinengxolo ngathi sisandi somkhosi; zakuma, zawayeka ehla amaphiko azo.
25 Kwabakho ke izwi liphuma ngaphaya kwesibhakabhaka, esibe siphezu kweentloko zazo; zakuma, zawayeka ehla amaphiko azo.
26 Ngaphezu kwesibhakabhaka esibe siphezu kweentloko zazo, kwabonakala umfanekiselo wetrone, wanga lilitye lesafire; ngaphezu komfanekiselo wetrone kwabakho umfanekiselo ongathi yimbonakalo yomntu phezu kwayo ngaphezulu.
27 Ndabona ke, ngathi yimbonakalo yegolide evuthiweyo, ngathi yimbonakalo yomlilo, ngaphakathi kwayo nangeenxa zonke kuyo, kwathabathela embonakalweni yesinqe kwenyusa; kwathabathela embonakalweni yesinqe kwehlisa, ndabona ke ngathi yimbonakalo yomlilo, kumhlophe ke ngeenxa zonke.
28 Ngathi yimbonakalo yomnyama obakhoyo efini mini ngemvula, yabe injalo imbonakalo yobumhlophe ngeenxa zonke. Leyo yimbonakalo yomfanekiselo wobuqaqawuli bukaYehova. Ndabona ke, ndawa ngobuso, ndaliva izwi lothethayo.

15 Ndafika ke eTelabhibhi, kubathinjwa ababehleli emlanjeni oyiKebhare, apho babehleli khona; ndahlala phantsi khona iintsuku zasixhenxe, ndimangalisiwe, phakathi kwabo.
16 Kwathi ekupheleni kweentsuku ezisixhenxe, kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,

22 Sabakho apho isandla sikaYehova phezu kwam, wathi kum, Suk’ ume, phuma uye entilini, ndithethe nawe khona.
23 Ndesuka ndema, ndaphuma ndaya entilini; nanko ke, kumi khona ubuqaqawuli bukaYehova obunjengobuqaqawuli obuya ndabubonayo ngasemlanjeni oyiKebhare; ndawa ngobuso.

3 Kaloku isiphelo sikufikele; ndiya kuwukhuphela umsindo wam kuwe, ndikugwebe ngokweendlela zakho, ndiwabeke phezu kwakho amasikizi akho onke.
4 Aliyi kuba nanceba kuwe iliso lam, ndingakucongi; ke ndiya kukuzisela iindlela zakho, abe sesazulwini sakho amasikizi akho; nazi ukuba ndinguYehova.
5 Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ububi, ububi obubodwa; yabonani, buyeza.
6 Kuza isiphelo, isiphelo sona siyeza, sikuvukele wena; yabona siyeza.
7 Uyakuzela umjojo, mmi welizwe eli; liyeza ixesha, isondele imini; kusisaqunge, akungamayeyeye emihlali ezintabeni.
8 Ngoku kwakufuphi nje ndiya kuthulula phezu kwakho ubushushu bam, ndiwuphelelisele kuwe umsindo wam, ndikugwebe ngokweendlela zakho, ndiwabeke phezu kwakho onke amasikizi akho.

11 Ugonyamelo luphakame lwaba luswazi lokungendawo; akuyi kubakho namnye kubo osalayo, kungabikho nto kwingxokolo yabo, kungabikho nto kwintabalala yabo; kungabikho njuze isalayo kubo.
12 Lifikile ixesha, isondele imini; othengayo makangavuyi, othengisayo makangenzi sijwili; ngokuba ukuvutha komsindo kuyayizela yonke ingxokolo yakhona.
13 Ngokuba othengisayo akayi kubuyela entweni abethengise ngayo, nokuba ubesadla ubomi phakathi kwabadla ubomi; ngokuba umbono ongengxokolo yonke yakhona awuyi kubuya umva; kungabikho bani ubomelezayo ubomi bakhe ebugwenxeni bakhe.
14 Bavuthela isigodlo, balungisa konke; kodwa akukho namnye oya ekulweni; ngokuba ubushushu bam buyizele ingxokolo yabo yonke.
15 Ngekrele ngaphandle, ngendyikitya yokufa nangendlala ngaphakathi: osendle uya kufa likrele, ophakathi komzi adliwe yindlala nayindyikitya yokufa.
16 Ke abasindileyo kubo bosinda, babe sezintabeni njengamavukuthu asemifuleni, bedumzela bonke bephela, elowo edumzela ngobugwenxa bakhe.

18 babhinqe ezirhwexayo, bagutyungelwe kukududuzela, ebusweni bonke ibe kukudana, iintloko zabo zonke zibe ziinkqayi.
19 Isilivere yabo baya kuyiphosa ezitratweni, negolide yabo ibe yinto engcolileyo kubo. Isilivere yabo negolide yabo ayiyi kuba nako ukubahlangula ngemini yokuphuphuma komsindo kaYehova; abayi kuwuhluthisa ngayo umphefumlo wabo, nombilini wabo bangawuzalisi ngayo; ngokuba yaba sisikhubekiso sokuba babe gwenxa.
20 Isivatho sabo esinobukhazikhazi basimisela ikratshi, benza ngaso imifanekiso yabo engamasikizi, enezothe; ngenxa yoko ndiyenze yayinto engcolileyo kubo.
21 Ndiya kuyinikela esandleni sabasemzini ukuba iphangwe, nakwabangendawo behlabathi ibe lixhoba, bayihlambele;
22 ndibususe ubuso bam kubo, bayihlambele ingqwebo yam; bafike abatyhobozi, bayihlambele.
23 Yenza umxokelelwane, ngokuba ilizwe liliphalaza igazi elimsulwa, nomzi uzele lugonyamelo.
24 Ndozisa abanobubi basezintlangeni, bazihluthe izindlu zabo, ndiliphelise ikratshi labanamandla, zihlanjelwe iingcwele zabo.
25 Kuyafika ukuxhalaba; bafuna uxolo, alukho.
26 Kuza umeyeliselo phezu komeyeliselo, kubekho udaba phezu kodaba, bafune umbono kumprofeti, ke umyalelo utshabalale ungabikho kumbingeleli, neqhinga kumadoda amakhulu.
27 Ukumkani uya kwenza isijwili, nesikhulu sambathe ummangaliso, ziyekelele izandla zabantu belizwe eli. Ndiya kwenza kubo ngokwendlela yabo, ndibagwebe ngokwezigwebo zabo; bazi ukuba ndinguYehova.

2 Ndabona, nantso into efana nendoda ukubonakala kwayo; kuthabathele esinqeni sayo kwehlisa, kubonakala ingumlilo; kuthabathele esinqeni sayo kunyuse, ngathi kukubonakala kokukhazimla, ngathi yimbonakalo yegolide evuthiweyo.
3 Wolula into emilise okwesandla, wandibamba ngesihlwitha sentloko yam; umoya wandifunqula ndaba phakathi komhlaba nezulu. Wandisa eYerusalem ngemibono kaThixo, ekungeneni kwesango lentendelezo ephakathi, elibheke ngasentla, apho bekuhleli khona umfanekiso wobukhwele okhweletisayo.
4 Nabo ke bukhona ubuqaqawuli bukaThixo kaSirayeli, bunjengombono endawubonayo entilini leyo.
5 Wathi kum, Nyana womntu, khawuphakamise amehlo akho, ukhangele ngasentla. Ndawaphakamisa ke amehlo am, ndakhangela ngasentla: nanko ngasentla kwesango lesibingelelo kukho loo mfanekiso wobukhwele usekungeneni kwalo.
6 Wathi kum, Nyana womntu, uyakubona na abakwenzayo? Ngamasikizi amakhulu la, iwenzayo apha indlu kaSirayeli, ukuze ndikhwelele kude nengcwele yam; usaya kubuya ubone amasikizi amakhulu kunala.
7 Wandisa ke ekungeneni kwentendelezo; ndabona, nango umngxuma eludongeni.
8 Wathi kum, Nyana womntu, khawugqobhoze eludongeni. Ndagqobhoza ke eludongeni, nanko kukho umnyango.
9 Wathi kum, Yiza, ubone amasikizi amabi abawenzayo apha.
10 Ndangena, ndabona: nanzo zonke izinto ezimilise okwesinambuzane nenkomo, izinto ezinezothe, nezigodo zonke zendlu kaSirayeli, zikroliwe eludongeni ngeenxa zonke.
11 Kumi phambi kwazo amadoda angamashumi asixhenxe kumadoda amakhulu endlu kaSirayeli, noYazaniya unyana kaShafan emi phakathi kwawo, iyileyo iphethe ngesandla isiqhumiselo, kunyuka ivumba lelifu lokuqhumisela.
12 Wathi kum, Nyana womntu, ukubonile na akwenzayo emnyameni amadoda amakhulu endlu kaSirayeli, iyileyo ezingontsini zayo ezinemifanekiso? ngokuba esithi, uYehova akasiboni, uYehova ulilahlile ilizwe.
13 Wathi kum, Usaya kubuya ubone amasikizi awenzayo amakhulu kunala.
14 Wandisa ekungeneni kwesango lendlu kaYehova elingasentla; nanko kuhleli abafazi apho, belilela uTamuzi.
15 Wathi kum, Ubonile na, nyana womntu? Usaya kubuya ubone amasikizi awenzayo amakhulu kunala.
16 Wandisa entendelezweni ephakathi yendlu kaYehova: nanko, ekungeneni etempileni kaYehova, phakathi kwevaranda nesibingelelo, kukho amadoda angathi angamashumi amabini anamahlanu, eyinikele umva itempile kaYehova, ubuso bawo bubheke empumalanga; aqubuda kwilanga, ebheke empumalanga.
17 Wathi kum, Ubonile na, nyana womntu? Kuncinane na kwindlu kaYuda ukuwenza la masikizi bawenzayo apha, ukuba ke balizalise ilizwe nangogonyamelo, babuye bandiqumbise? Nabo, besisa isebe lomdiliya emathatheni abo.
18 Nam ndiya kwenza ngobushushu; aliyi kuba nanceba iliso lam, ndibaconge; nokuba badanduluke ezindlebeni zam ngezwi elikhulu, andiyi kubeva.

1 Wabiza ngelizwi elikhulu ezindlebeni zam, esithi, Sondelani, baveleli bomzi, elowo ephethe ngesandla izixhobo zakhe zokutshabalalisa.
2 Nanko ke, kusiza amadoda amathandathu ngendlela yesango eliphezulu, elikhangele entla, iyileyo iphethe ngesandla izixhobo zayo zokuhlekeza; kukho indoda phakathi kwawo eyambethe ilinen emhlophe, inezinto zokubhala ethangeni layo; eza ke ema ecaleni kwesibingelelo sobhedu.
3 Ubuqaqawuli bukaThixo kaSirayeli baye bunyuka, busuka ekerubhini obebuphezu kwayo, baya emnyango wendlu. Wamemeza endodeni eyambethe ilinen emhlophe, enezinto zokubhala ethangeni layo.
4 Wathi uYehova kuyo, Canda esazulwini somzi, esazulwini seYerusalem, ubeke uphawu emabunzini amadoda agcunayo, ancwinayo ngenxa yamasikizi onke awenzekayo esazulwini sayo.
5 Wathi kwamanye ezindlebeni zam, Candani esazulwini somzi emva kwayo, nixabele; malingabi nanceba iliso lenu, ningabacongi.
6 Amaxhego, amadodana nomthinjana, abantwana nabafazi, babulaleni, ukuze batshabalale; ke bonke abantu abanophawu olo, musani ukufika kubo; nize niqalele ke engcweleni yam. Aqala ke ngamadoda amakhulu abephambi kwendlu.
7 Wathi ke kuwo, Yenzeni inqambi indlu le, nizizalise iintendelezo ngababuleweyo; phumani niye. Aphuma ke abulala kuwo umzi.
8 Kwathi, xa ababulalayo, ndisele mna, ndawa ngobuso, ndakhala, ndathi, Awu! Nkosi Yehova, uya kuwatshabalalisa onke na amasalela amaSirayeli ngokubuthulula ubushushu bakho phezu kweYerusalem?
9 Wathi kum, Ubugwenxa bendlu kaSirayeli nobendlu kaYuda bukhulu kakhulu kunene, nelizwe lizele ligazi, nomzi uzele bubugqwetha; ngokuba besithi, UYehova ulilahlile ilizwe, uYehova akaboni.
10 Ke nam aliyi kuba nanceba iliso lam, ndibaconge; ndiya kubanika ngokwendlela yabo entlokweni yabo.
11 Nantso indoda eyayambethe ilinen emhlophe, ebinezinto zokubhala ethangeni layo, ibuya nelizwi elithi, Ndenze njengoko ubundiwisele umthetho ngako.

1 Ndabona, nanko, phezu kwesibhakabhaka esibe siphezu kwentloko yeekerubhi, kunjengelitye lesafire, kubonakala ngathi ngumfanekiso wetrone; wabonakala phezu kwazo uYehova.
2 Wathetha kwindoda eyambethe ilinen emhlophe, wathi, Yiya phakathi kweevili ezijikelezayo ngaphantsi kwekerubhi, uzalise izandla zakho ngamalahle omlilo, uwathabathe phakathi kweekerubhi, uwasasaze phezu kwawo umzi. Yangena ndiyibona.
3 Ke iikerubhi bezimi ngasekunene kwendlu, ekungeneni kwendoda leyo; ilifu layizalisa intendelezo ephakathi.
4 Benyuka ubuqaqawuli bukaYehova, besuka ezikerubhini, baya emnyango wendlu. Yazala indlu lilifu, nentendelezo yazala bubumhlophe bobuqaqawuli bukaYehova.
5 Savakala isandi samaphiko eekerubhi, sada saya entendelezweni engaphandle, sinjengezwi loSomandla akuthetha.
6 Kwathi, akuyiwisela umthetho indoda eyambethe ilinen emhlophe, esithi, Thabatha umlilo phakathi kweevili ezijikelezayo, phakathi kweekerubhi, yasuka yangena yema ecaleni kweevili.
7 Ibe isuka ke ikerubhi, isolule isandla sayo phakathi kweekerubhi, isise emlilweni ophakathi kweekerubhi, iwuthabathe, iwunikele esandleni sowambethe ilinen emhlophe; ebewuthabatha ke aphume.
8 Kwabonakala ke ezikerubhini into efana nesandla somntu, phantsi kwamaphiko azo.
9 Ndabona, nanzo iivili ezine zisecaleni leekerubhi, ivili enye isecaleni lekerubhi enye, ivili enye isecaleni lekerubhi enye, ukubonakala kweevili ngathi yimbonakalo yelitye lekrizolite.
10 Ngokubonakala kwazo zone bezimfani-nye, kwanga kukho ivili ngaphakathi kwevili.
11 Ekuhambeni kwazo zahamba zaya kumacala azo omane; azajikeleza ekuhambeni kwazo; ngokuba apho sukuba leyo iphambili ibe ibheka khona, zibe ziyilandela, zingajikelezi ekuhambeni kwazo.
12 Ke umzimba wazo wonke, nomhlana wazo, nezandla zazo, namaphiko azo, neevili, zibe zizele ngamehlo ngeenxa zonke; zone bezineevili zazo.
13 Iivili ezo zabizwa ezindlebeni zam, kwathiwa, ziivili ezijikelezayo.
14 Inye ibe inobuso obune: ubuso bokuqala ibubuso bekerubhi, ubuso besibini ibubuso bomntu, obesithathu ibubuso bengonyama, obesine ibubuso bokhozi.
15 Zenyuka iikerubhi; yilaa nto iphilileyo, ndayibonayo emlanjeni oyiKebhare.
16 Ekuhambeni kweekerubhi zahamba iivili ecaleni lazo; nasekuwaphakamiseni kweekerubhi amaphiko azo, ukuba zisuke emhlabeni, azijikanga neevili zazo zimke ecaleni lazo.
17 Ekumeni kwazo zema nazo; ekusukeni kwazo ukuba ziphaphazele, zesuka nazo; ngokuba umoya wento ephilileyo ube ukho kuzo.
18 Baphuma ke ubuqaqawuli bukaYehova, bemka emnyango wendlu, beza kuma phezu kweekerubhi.
19 Iikerubhi zawaphakamisa amaphiko azo, zasuka emhlabeni emehlweni am; ekuphumeni kwazo iivili zazingakuzo. Zema ekungeneni kwesango lendlu kaYehova elisempumalanga, ubuqaqawuli bukaThixo kaSirayeli buphezu kwazo ngaphezulu.
20 Yilaa nto iiphilileyo, ndayibonayo phantsi koThixo kaSirayeli emlanjeni oyiKebhare; ndazi ke ukuba ziziikerubhi.
21 Inye ibe inobuso obune inye ibe inamaphiko amane, imfano yezandla zomntu ingaphantsi kwamaphiko azo.
22 Ke imfano yobuso bazo, ibe ibobaa buso ndabubonayo imlanjeni oyiKebhare, nokubonakala kwazo nazo ngokwazo; zibe zihamba iyileyo iye kwicala elikhangelene nobuso bayo.

16 Ngako oko yithi, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ekubeni ndibakhwelelisele ezintlangeni, ndabaphangalalisa emazweni, ke ndoba yingcwele kubo umzuzwana omncinane kuloo mazwe baye kuwo.
17 Ngako oko yithi, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ndiya kunibutha ezizweni, ndinihlanganise emazweni enilusali kuwo, ndininike umhlaba wakwaSirayeli.
18 Baya kufika kuwo, bazisuse kuwo zonke izinto zawo ezinezothe, namasikizi awo onke.
19 Ndobanika ntliziyo yimbi, ndibeke umoya omtsha ngaphakathi kwenu; ndiyisuse intliziyo yelitye enyameni yabo, ndibanike intliziyo yenyama;
20 ukuze bahambe ngemimiselo yam, bagcine amasiko am bawenze, babe ngabantu bam, mna ndibe nguThixo wabo.
21 Ke bona abantliziyo ihamba ngokwentliziyo yezinto zabo ezinezothe, nezingamasikizi abo, ndiya kubanika ngokwendlela yabo entlokweni yabo; utsho uYehova.
22 Iikerubhi zawaphakamisa amaphiko azo, kwaneevili ezingakuzo; ubuqaqawuli bukaThixo kaSirayeli baba phezu kwazo ngaphezulu.
23 Benyuka ubuqaqawuli bukaYehova, besuka phakathi komzi, bema entabeni engasempumalanga kuwo umzi.
24 UMoya wandifunqula, wandisa kwelamaKaledi kubathinjwa, ndisembonweni ngoMoya kaThixo. Wenyuka wemka kum umbono ebendiwubona.

2 Nyana womntu, yazise iYerusalem amasikizi ayo, uthi,
3 Itsho iNkosi uYehova kwiYerusalem, ukuthi, Ukuvela kwakho nokuzalwa kwakho kokwasezweni lamaKanan; uyihlo waye engumAmori, unyoko waye engumHetikazi.
4 Ukuzalwa kwakho ke, ngemini yokuzalwa kwakho ayinqunyulwanga imfesane yakho, akuhlanjwanga ngamanzi ukuba usuleke, akuhlikihlwanga ngatyuwa, akusongelwanga zisongelweni.
5 Akubangakho liso linenceba kuwe, ukuze wenzelwe noko inye kwezo zinto, ngokuba nofefe kuwe; walahlelwa endle ngokucatshukelwa kwakho ngemini yokuzalwa kwakho.
6 Ndagqitha kuwe, ndakubona ugqushagqusha egazini lakhe, ndathi kuwe, Usegazini lakho njalo, phila; usegazini lakho njalo, phila!
7 Ndakwenza waba yinyambalala, njengokuntshula kwentsimi; wanda, wakhula, wafika entlahleni yezidlele; waphuma amabele, bahluma uboya bakho; waye ke wena uze kanye.
8 Ke kaloku ndagqitha kuwe, ndakubona, nalo ixesha lakho lilixesha lothando. Ndatwabulula isondo lengubo yam phezu kwakho, ndabugubungela ubuze bakho; ndakufungela, ndanqophisana nawe, itsho iNkosi uYehova; waba ngowam ke.

11 Ndakuvathisa ngesivatho, ndakufaka izacholo ezihlahleni, nemixokelelwane emqaleni wakho.
12 Ndakunika ikhonkco lempumlo, namajikazi ezindlebeni zakho, nesithsaba sokuhomba entloko.
13 Wavatha ke igolide nesilivere, nezambatho zakho zaba zezelinen ecikizekileyo, nezesilika, nezimfakamfele. Wadla umgubo ocoliweyo, nobusi, neoli; waba mhle kakhulu kunene, waya uphumelela ebukumkanini.
14 Lwaphuma udumo lobuhle bakho lwagqiba ilizwe lonke; ngokuba bapheleliseka bona ngobungangamela bam, endabubeka phezu kwakho; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
15 Wesuka wena wakholosa ngobuhle bakho, wahenyuza ngenxa yodumo lwakho; ubuhenyu bakho wabuthululela phezu kwabo bonke abadlulayo, waba ngowabo.
16 Wathabatha ezingutyeni zakho; iziganga wazenzela iintente ezirhwexu, wahenyuza phezu kwazo; into ebe ingafanele kuza, ebe ingafanele kubakho.
17 Wathabatha iimpahla zakho zokuhomba zegolide yam, nezesilivere yam endakunikayo, wazenzela imifanekiso engamadoda, wahenyuza nayo.
18 Wathabatha iingubo zakho ezimfakamfele, wayigubungela ngazo; neoli yam nesiqhumiso sam wasibeka phambi kwayo.
19 Isonka sam endakunikayo, nomgubo ocoliweyo, neoli, nobusi, izinto endakudlisayo zona, wazibeka phambi kwayo, ukuba zibe livumba elithozamisayo. Kwaba njalo; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
20 Wathabatha oonyana bakho neentombi zakho, owazizalela mna, wabingelela ngazo kuyo ukuba idle. Bebubuncinane na ke ubuhenyu bakho,

22 Emasikizini akho onke, nasebuhenywini bakho, akuyikhumbulanga imihla yobuncinane bakho, oko ubuze kanye, ugqushagqusha egazini lakho.
23 Kwaza kwathi, emva kwezo nto zakho zonke ezimbi (yeha! yeha ke wena! itsho iNkosi uYehova),

27 Yabona, ndasolula phezu kwakho isandla sam, ndawunciphisa umamkeliso owumiselweyo, ndakunikela elitheni labakuthiyayo, kweleentombi zamaFilisti, ezibe ziyidanele indlela yakho yamanyala.
28 Wahenyuza noonyana baseAsiriya, ngenxa yokuba unganelanga; wahenyuza ke nabo, akwanela noko.
29 Wabandisela ezweni lamaKanan ubuhenyu bakho kwelamaKaledi, akwanela nayiloo nto.
30 Hayi, ukuthamba kwentliziyo yakho! itsho iNkosi uYehova; ukuba wenze zonke ezo zinto, imisebenzi yenkazana ehenyuzayo, esileyo.

33 Onke amahenyukazi bawanika izipho; ke wena wazinika zonke izithandane zakho izipho zakho, wazicenga ukuze zize kuwe ngeenxa zonke ekuhenyuzeni kwakho.
34 Wena okwakho ukuhenyuza kuthe kwaphambana nokwamankazana, ngokuthi ingabi nguwe olandelwayo ekuhenyuzeni; ngokuthi urhole wena umvuzo wobuhenyu, ungarholelwa umvuzo wobuhenyu; waba ngophambileyo ke.
35 Ngako oko, henyukazi, live ilizwi likaYehova.
36 Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ngenxa enokuba iphalele imali yakho, batyhileka ubuze bakho ngokuhenyuza kwakho nezithandane zakho, nangenxa yezigodo zonke zamasikizi akho, nangenxa yamagazi oonyana bakho, owabanikelayo kuzo:
37 ngako oko, yabona, ndiya kuzithabatha zonke izithandane zakho owakholisana nazo, nabo bonke owabathandayo, ndawonye nabo bonke owabathiyayo, ndibahlanganise, ndikuchase ngeenxa zonke, ndibutyhile ubuze bakho kubo, babubone ubuze bakho bonke.
38 Ndokugweba ngokugwetywa kwabakrexezikazi nabaphalazi begazi, ndikwenze wena ube ligazi lobushushu nobukhwele.
39 Ndokunikela esandleni sabo, bawagungxule amanqugwala akho, bazidilize iindawo zakho eziphakamileyo, bakuhlube iingubo zakho bazithabathe iimpahla zakho zokuhomba, bakushiye uze kanye.
40 Baya kukunyusela ibandla, bakuxulube ngamatye, bakuxabele ngamakrele abo;
41 bazitshise izindlu zakho ngomlilo, bazenze kuwe izigwebo emehlweni abafazi abaninzi, ndikunqumamise ungabi saba lihenyu, ungabi, sarhola umvuzo wobuhenyu.
42 Ndobupholisela kuwe ubushushu bam, limke ikhwele lam kuwe, ndizole, ndingabi saqumba.
43 Ngenxa enokuba ungayikhumbulanga imihla yobuncinane bakho, wesuka wangqungisana nam kwezi zinto zonke: yabona, nam ndikunika ngokwendlela yakho entlokweni yakho, itsho iNkosi uYehova, ukuze ungenzi manyala angaphezu kwamasikizi akho onke.
44 Yabona, bonke abazekelisi baya kuzekelisa ngawe, besithi, Ifuze unina intombi yakhe.
45 Wena uyintombi yonyoko, odimeleyo yindoda yakhe nabantwana bakhe; wena ungudade woodade benu, abadimeleyo ngamadoda abo nabantwana babo; unyoko ngumHetikazi, uyihlo ngumAmori.
46 Udade wenu omkhulu nguSamari namagxamesi akhe, ehleli ngasekhohlo kwakho; nomsakwenu omncinane kuwe, ehleli ngasekunene kwakho, yiSodom namagxamesi ayo.
47 Akuhambanga ke ngeendlela zabo, wenze ngokwamasikizi abo; ukanti ngomzuzwana wonakalise ngaphezu kwabo ngeendlela zakho zonke.
48 Ndihleli nje, itsho iNkosi uYehova, iSodom umsakwenu, yona namagxamesi ayo, ayenzanga njengoko wenze ngako wena namagxamesi akho.
49 Nabu ke ubugwenxa beSodom umsakwenu; yabe ilikratshi, nokuhlutha sisonka, nokuchulumacha, yona namagxamesi ayo; ayabamba ngesandla abaziintsizana nabangamahlwempu.
50 Babezidla, besenza amasikizi phambi kwam; ndabasusa, ndakukubona oko.
51 NoSamari akonanga ngokwesiqingatha sezono zakho; waye wena uwandisile amasikizi akho ngaphezu kwakhe, wabenza amalungisa odade benu, ngamasikizi akho owenzileyo.
52 Nawe, thwala ke ihlazo lakho, olibalele kodade benu. Ngezono zakho owazenza ngokumasikizi kunabo, ubenze baba ngamalungisa kunawe; dana ke nawe, ulithwale ihlazo lakho; ekubeni ubenze amalungisa oodade benu.
53 Ekukubuyiseni kwam ukuthinjwa kwabo, ukuthinjwa kweSodom namagxamesi ayo, nokuthinjwa koSamari namagxamesi akhe, ndokubuyisa ukuthinjwa okukuthinjwa kwakho phakathi kwabo;
54 ukuze ulithwale ihlazo lakho, uzidanele izinto zonke ozenzileyo, ubathuthuzele.
55 Baya kuthi abasakwenu, iSodom namagxamesi ayo, babuyele kwakwisimo sabo sangaphambili, noSamari namagxamesi akhe babuyele kwakwisimo sabo sangaphambili, nawe namagxamesi akho nibuyele kwakwisimo senu sangaphambili.
56 ISodom umsakwenu ayibanga sifundo emlonyeni wakho ngemini yamakratshi akho;
57 zingekatyhilwa izinto zakho ezimbi, njengasexesheni lesingcikivo samagxamesi akwa-Aram nesangeenxa zonke kuye, samagxamesi amaFilisti, awakucukulayo ngeenxa zonke.
58 Amanyala akho namasikizi akho uwathwele; utsho uYehova.
59 Ngokuba itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ndenza ke kuwe njengoko wenze ngako wena, osidelileyo isifungo, ukuba uwaphule umnqophiso.
60 Ndiya kuwukhumbula mna umnqophiso wam nawe ngemihla yobuncinane bakho, ndikumisele umnqophiso ongunaphakade.
61 Wozikhumbula iindlela zakho, udane ekubamkeleni kwakho oodade benu, abakhulu kunawe kunye nabancinane kunawe; ndikunike babe ziintombi kuwe, noko bengengabomnqophiso wakho.
62 Ndowumisa mna umnqophiso wam nawe, wazi ukuba ndinguYehova;
63 ukuze ukhumbule, udane, ungabi saba nakuvula mlomo ngenxa yehlazo lakho, ekukuxoleleni kwam zonke izinto ozenzileyo; itsho iNkosi uYehova.

5 Lacaphula embewini yelo zwe, layifaka entsimini ehlwayelwayo, layithabatha layisa kumanzi amaninzi, layimisa ngokomngculuba.
6 Yahluma, yaba ngumdiliya onabileyo, omfuphi, ukuze amasebe awo asinge kulo, neengcambu zawo zibe phantsi kwalo; waba ngumdiliya ke, wenza amasebe, waqhama amagqabi.
7 Kwabakho elinye ixhalanga elikhulu, elimaphiko makhulu, linoboya obuninzi. Nango lo mdiliya unabela ngakulo ngeengcambu zawo, ugobela ngakulo amasebe awo, ukuba liwanyele ezindimeni otyewe kuzo.

10 Yabona, khona utyelwe, womila na? Awuyi kubuna ubune na, wakufikelwa lulophu lwasempumalanga? Uya kubunela ezindimeni ohlume kuzo.
11 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,

13 Wathabatha owasembeweni yokumkani, wanqophisana naye, wamfungisa; wathabatha iinjengele zelizwe elo;
14 ukuze bube bubukumkani obuphantsi, ukuze bungaziphakamisi, ukuze awugcine umnqophiso wakhe, ukuze ume wona.

2 Uyintoni na kuni lo mzekeliso, nizekelisa ngawo emhlabeni wakwaSirayeli, nisithi, ooyise badle iidiliya ezimuncu, kwaba buthelezi amazinyo oonyana?
3 Ndihleli nje, itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, anisayi kuba sazekelisa ngalo mzekeliso kwaSirayeli.
4 Yabonani, yonke imiphefumlo yeyam; umphefumlo woyise unjengomphefumlo wonyana, yeyam yomibini; umphefumlo owonayo, kuya kufa wona.
5 Umntu xa athe waba lilungisa, wenza ngokwesiko nangobulungisa;
6 akadlela ezintabeni, amehlo akhe akawaphakamisela kwizigodo zendlu yakwaSirayeli; umfazi wommelwane wakhe akamenza inqambi, akasondela kumfazi enomzi;
7 akamxinzelela phantsi umntu, wasibuyisa isibambiso sokuboleka kwakhe, akaxhakamfula; wamnika olambileyo isonka sakhe, wamgubungela oze ngengubo;
8 akanikela imali ukuba adle abanye ngayo, akathabatha nzala yamboleko; wasibuyisa isandla sakhe ekugqwetheni, wenza ngokwesiko nangenyaniso phakathi kobani nobani;
9 wahamba ngemimiselo yam, wagcina amasiko am, ukuba enze ngenyaniso: ulilungisa, inene uya kuphila; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
10 Ke ethe wazala unyana osisigwinta, ophalaza igazi, owenza nokuba inye kwezo zinto,
11 ke yena ezo nto zonke engazenzanga, unyana kananjalo odlela ezintabeni, omenza inqambi umfazi wommelwane wakhe;
12 oluxinzelela phantsi usizana nehlwempu, oxhakamfulayo, ongasibuyisiyo isibambiso; owaphakamisela kwizigodo amehlo akhe, owenza amasikizi;
13 onikela imali ukuba adle abanye ngayo, othabatha inzala yemboleko: wophila na ke loo nyana? Akayi kuphila; wenze onke la masikizi; uya kubulawa afe; igazi lakhe liya kuba phezu kwakhe.
14 Yabonani ke, ethe yena lo wazala unyana, othe wazibona zonke izono zikayise azenzayo, abone ke, angenjenjalo;
15 angadleli ezintabeni, amehlo akhe angawaphakamiseli kwizigodo zendlu kaSirayeli, umfazi wommelwane wakhe angamenzi inqambi;
16 angamxinzeleli phantsi umntu, angabambisi ngesibambiso, angaxhakamfuli; isonka sakhe asinike olambileyo, amgubungele oze ngengubo;
17 abuyise isandla sakhe kolusizana; angadli abanye ngemali, angathabathi nzala yamboleko, wenza ngokwamasiko am, uhamba ngemimiselo yam: lowo unyana akayi kufa ngobugwenxa bukayise; inene uya kuphila.
18 Uyise yena, ngokokuba ecudisile kakubi, exhakamfula umzalwana, wenza okungalungileyo phakathi kwabantu bakowabo, yabonani, uya kufa ngobugwenxa bakhe.
19 Ukanti nithi ke, Kungathuba lini na ukuba unyana angabuthwali ubugwenxa bukavise? Unyana kaloku wenze ngokwesiko nangobulungisa; uyigcinile yonke imimiselo yam, wayenza; inene, uya kuphila.
20 Umphefumlo owonayo, kuya kufa wona wodwa. Unyana akayi kuthwala ubugwenxa bukayise, noyise akayi kubuthwala ubugwenxa bonyana; ubulungisa belungisa buya kuba phezu kwalo, nokungendawo kongendawo kuya kuba phezu kwakhe.
21 Ongendawo ke, xa athe wabuya ezonweni zakhe zonke azenzileyo, wayigcina yonke imimiselo yam, wenza ngokwesiko nangobulungisa, inene, uya kuphila; akayi kufa.
22 Zonke izikreqo zakhe azenzileyo aziyi kukhunjulelwa kuye; ngobulungisa bakhe abenzileyo, uya kuphila.
23 Kumnandi na kanene kum ukufa kongendawo? Itsho iNkosi uYehova. Okumnandi kum asikuko na ukuthi abuye ezindleleni zakhe, aphile?
24 Khona ekubuyeni kwelungisa ebulungiseni balo, lenza ngobugqwetha, ngokwamasikizi awenzileyo ongendawo, lophila na lona? Yonke imisebenzi yalo yobulungisa elayenzayo ayiyi kukhunjulwa; ngenxa yobumenemene balo elimeneze ngabo, nangenxa yezono zalo elone ngazo: ngenxa yezo zinto liya kufa.
25 Ukanti nithi ke, Indlela yeNkosi ayilungelelene. Khanive, ndlu kaSirayeli; indlela yam ayilungelelene, yini na? Asizezenu na iindlela ezingalungeleleneyo?
26 Xa lithe ilungisa labuya ebulungiseni balo, lenza ngobugqwetha, lofa ngezo zinto; lofa ngobugqwetha balo elibenzileyo.
27 Xa athe ongendawo wabuya kokungendawo kwakhe akwenzileyo, wenza ngokwesiko nangobulungisa, yena uya kuwusindisa umphefumlo wakhe.
28 Ekubeni ebonile, wabuya ezikreqweni zakhe zonke azenzileyo, uya kuphila; akayi kufa.
29 Ukanti ithi ke indlu kaSirayeli, Indlela yeNkosi ayilungelelene. Iindlela zam azilungelelene na, ndlu kaSirayeli? Asizezenu na iindlela ezingalungeleleneyo?
30 Ngako oko ndiya kunigweba elowo ngokwendlela yakhe, ndlu kaSirayeli; itsho iNkosi uYehova. Buyani, nizibuyise ezikreqweni zenu zonke, bungabi sisikhubekiso ubugwenxa kuni.
31 Lahlani zonke izikreqo zenu enikreqe ngazo, nizenzele intliziyo entsha nomoya omtsha. Yini na ukuba nife, ndlu kaSirayeli?
32 Ngokuba akumnandi kum ukufa kofayo; itsho iNkosi uYehova. Zibuyiseni ke niphile.

8 Iintlanga zaba ngeenxa zonke emazweni, zamisa kulo, zawutwabulula phezu kwalo umnatha wazo, labanjiswa emhadini wazo.
9 Zalifaka endlwaneni linamakhonkco zalisa kukumkani waseBhabheli, zalisa ezimboniselweni, ukuze ilizwi lalo lingabi savakala ezintabeni zakwaSirayeli.
10 Unyoko ubenjengomdiliya, otyelwe ngasemanzini, ekuphumleni kwakho, waqhama, wanamasebe amaninzi ngenxa yamanzi amaninzi.
11 Waba namasebe aqinileyo okuba ziintonga zabalawuli. Ubude bawo baphakama baphezulu, phakathi kweengqimba zamafu; wabonakala ekuphakameni kwawo ngobuninzi bamasebe awo.
12 Wanyothulwa ke ngobushushu, wakhahlelwa emhlabeni, ulophu lwasempumalanga lwazomisa iziqhamo zawo; axhuzulwa oma amasebe awo aqinileyo, atsha ngumlilo.
13 Ngoku ke utyelwe entlango, ezweni elingumqwebedu, elomileyo.

Isahluko 20

1 Ke kaloku kwathi ngomnyaka wesixhenxe, ngenyanga yesihlanu, ngolweshumi enyangeni leyo, kwafika amadoda, evela kumadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli, ukuba abuzise kuYehova. Ahlala phantsi phambi kwam.
2 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,
3 Nyana womntu, thetha namadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli, uthi kuwo, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Nize kubuzisa kum na? Ndihleli nje, unakanye ukuba ndibuzwe nini; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
4 Uza kubagweba na, uza kugweba na, nyana womntu? Bazise ke amasikizi ooyise.
5 Yithi kubo, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ngemini endamnyulayo uSirayeli, endayiphakamiselayo isandla sam imbewu yendlu kaYakobi, endazazisayo kubo ezweni laseYiputa, endabapha kamisela isandla sam, ndisithi, NdinguYehova uThixo wenu:
6 ngaloo mini kanye, ndabaphakamisela isandla sam, ukuze ndibakhuphe ezweni laseYiputa, ndibase ezweni endabahlolelayo lona, elibaleka amasi nobusi, liligugu kunamazwe onke.
7 Ndathi kubo, Lahlani elowo izinto ezinezothe zamehlo akhe, ningazenzi iinqambi ngezigodo zaseYiputa; ndinguYehova uThixo wenu.
8 Basuka baba neenkani kum, abavuma ukundiphulaphula, abazilahla elowo izinto ezinezothe zamehlo akhe, abazishiya izigodo zaseYiputa. Ndathi ke, ndiya kuthulula ubushushu bam phezu kwabo, ndiwuphelelisele kubo umsindo wam phakathi kwelizwe laseYiputa.
9 Koko ndenzayo ngenxa yegama lam; ukuze lingahlanjelwa emehlweni eentlanga, ababephakathi kwazo, endazazisa kubo emehlweni azo, ekubakhupheni kwam ezweni laseYiputa.
10 Ndabakhupha ke ezweni laseYiputa, ndabasa entlango;
11 ndabanika imimiselo yam, ndabazisa namasiko am, awothi umntu ewenzile, aphile ngawo.
12 Kananjalo ndabanika iisabatha zam, ukuba zibe ngumqondiso phakathi kwam nabo, ukuze bazi ukuba mna Yehova ndiya bangcwalisa.
13 Indlu kaSirayeli yesuka yaba neenkani kum entlango; abahamba ngemimiselo yam; bawacekisa amasiko am, awothi umntu ewenzile, aphile ngawo; bazihlambela kakhulu iisabatha zam. Ndathi ke, ndiya kuthulula ubushushu bam phezu kwabo entlango, ukuze ndibagqibele.
14 Koko ndenzayo ngenxa yegama lam; ukuze lingahlanjelwa emehlweni eentlanga, endabakhuphayo emehlweni azo.
15 Kananjalo mna ndabaphakamisela isandla entlango, ukuba ndingabasi ezweni endandibanikile, elibaleka amasi nobusi, liligugu kunamazwe onke;
16 ngenxa yokuba bawacekisayo amasiko am, abahamba ngemimiselo yam, bazihlambela iisabatha zam; ngokuba intliziyo yabo yazilandela izigodo zabo.
17 Koko laba nenceba iliso lam kubo, ukuba ndingabatshabalalisi, ndingabagqibeli entlango.
18 Ndathi ke koonyana babo entlango, Musani ukuhamba ngemimiselo yooyihlo, ningawagcini amasiko abo, ningazenzi iinqambi ngezigodo zabo.
19 Mna Yehova ndinguThixo wenu; hambani ngemimiselo yam, niwagcine amasiko am, niwenze;
20 nizingcwalise iisabatha zam, zibe ngumqondiso phakathi kwam nani, ukuze nazi ukuba ndinguYehova uThixo wenu.
21 Basuka oonyana baba neenkani kum; abahamba ngemimiselo yam, abawagcina amasiko am ukuba bawenze, awothi umntu ewenzile aphile ngawo; bazihlambela iisabatha zam. Ndathi ke, ndiya kuthulula ubushushu bam phezu kwabo, ndiphelelisele umsindo wam kubo entlango.
22 Koko ndasibuyisayo isandla sam, ndenza ngenxa yegama lam, ukuba lingahlanjelwa emehlweni eentlanga, endabakhuphayo emehlweni azo.
23 Kananjalo ndabaphakamisela isandla sam entlango, ukuba ndibachithachithe ezintlangeni, ndibaphangalalisele emazweni;
24 ngenxa enokuba bengawenzanga amasiko am, bayicekisayo imimiselo yam, bazihlambela iisabatha zam, amehlo abo alandela izigodo zooyise.
25 Nam ndabamisela imimiselo engabalungeleyo, namasiko abangenakuphila ngawo.
26 Ndabenza iinqambi ngezipho zabo, ekucandiseni kwabo emlilweni yonke into evula isizalo, ukuze ndibaphanzise; ukuze bazi ukuba ndinguYehova.
27 Ngako oko, thetha kwindlu kaSirayeli, nyana womntu, uthi kubo, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ooyihlo babuye bandinyelisa nangale nto, ekumenezeni kwabo ababemeneza ngako kum.
28 Kuba xenikweni ndabasayo ezweni endasiphakamiselayo isandla sam sokuba ndibanike lona, basuka bakhangela zonke iinduli ezinde, nemithi yonke ethe shinyi; bayibingelela khona imibingelelo yabo, banikela khona imisondezo yabo equmbisayo, babeka khona ivumba lamadini abo elithozamisayo, bathululela khona iminikelo yabo ethululwayo.
29 Ndathi ke kubo, Esi siganga niya kuso siyintoni na? Igama laso ke kuthiwa, siSiganga, unanamhla.
30 Ngako oko yithi kwindlu kaSirayeli, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Nizenze iinqambi ngendlela yooyihlo, nihenyuze ngokulandela izinto zabo ezinezothe nje;
31 nizenze iinqambi ezigodweni zenu ngokunikela izipho zenu, nangokuba candisa emlilweni oonyana benu nanamhlanje; mna ndingabuzwa nini na, ndlu kaSirayeli? Ndihleli nje, itsho iNkosi uYehova, andiyi kubuzwa nini, nakanye.
32 Loo nto ithe qatha emoyeni wenu, ayiyi kubakho nokubakho: leyo nithi, Siya kuba njengeentlanga, njengemizalwane yamazwe, silungiselele kwimithi namatye.
33 Ndihleli nje, inyaniso, itsho iNkosi uYehova, ngesandla esithe nkqi, nangengalo eyolukileyo, nangobushushu obuthululwayo, ndiya kuba ngukumkani phezu kwenu.
34 Ndonikhupha ezizweni, ndinibuthe emazweni enaphangalaliswa kuwo, ngesandla esithe nkqi, nangengalo eyolukileyo, nangobushushu obuthululwayo,
35 Ndiya kunisa kwintlango yezizwe, ndimangalelane nani, sikhangelane ebusweni;
36 njengoko ndamangalelana nooyihlo kwintlango yelizwe laseYiputa, ndiya kwenjenjalo ukumangalelana nani; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
37 Ndoniphumelisa phantsi kwentonga, ndinibophelele ngomnqophiso;
38 ndibakhethe kuni abagwilikayo nabakreqayo kum. Ndiya kubakhupha ezweni lokuphambukela kwabo; ke akuyi kungena namnye emhlabeni wakwaSirayeli, ukuze nazi ukuba ndinguYehova.
39 Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Nina ke, ndlu kaSirayeli, hambani, nikhonze elowo isigodo sakhe; kodwa emveni koko, inyaniso, niya kundiphulaphula, ningabi salihlambela igama lam elingcwele ngezipho zenu nangezigodo zenu.
40 Ngokuba itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Entabeni yam engcwele, entabeni ende yakwaSirayeli, khona apho iya kundikhonza yonke indlu yakwaSirayeli, yonke iphela ezweni; khona apho baya kuba likholo kum; khona apho ndiya kubiza imirhumo yenu neentlahlela yezipho zenu, entweni yenu yonke eniyingcwalisayo.
41 Niya kuba likholo kum ninevumba elithozamisayo, ekunikhupheni kwam ezizweni; ndinibuthe emazweni enaphangalaliswa kuwo, ndizingcwalisele kuni emehlweni eentlanga;
42 nazi ukuba ndinguYehova, ekuniseni kwam emhlabeni wakwaSirayeli, ezweni endasiphakamisela isandla sam sokuba ndilinike ooyihlo,
43 Niya kuzikhumbula khona iindlela zenu neentlondi zenu zonke, enazenza iinqambi ngazo; nizikruqukele ngokwenu ngenxa yazo zonke izinto ezimbi enizenzileyo;
44 nazi ukuba ndinguYehova, ekuniphatheni kwam ngenxa yegama lam, kungekhona ngokweendlela zenu ezimbi, nangokweentlondi zenu ezibolileyo, ndlu kaSirayeli; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
45 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,
46 Nyana womntu, bhekisa ubuso bakho kwelasezantsi, uwise intetho usingise ezantsi, uprofete ngehlathi lelizwe lasezantsi;
47 uthi kwihlathi lelizwe lasezantsi, Live ilizwi likaYehova; itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Yabona, ndifaka umlilo kuwe, utshise kuwe wonke umthi omanzi, nawo wonke umthi owomileyo. Akuyi kucima dangatye lamadangatye; borhawuka ubuso babantu bonke, kuthabathele ezantsi kuse entla,
48 Yobona yonke inyama, ukuba mna Yehova ndiwubasile; awuyi kucinywa.
49 Ndathi, Awu! Nkosi Yehova, bathi ngam lo, Akenzi ngemizekeliso kodwa na?




Isahluko 21

1 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,
2 Nyana womntu, bhekisa ubuso kwiYerusalem, uwise intetho ezingcweleni, uprofete ngomhlaba wakwaSirayeli.
3 Yithi kumhlaba wakwaSirayeli, Utsho uYehova ukuthi, Yabona, ndikuchasile; ndirhola ikrele lam esingxotyeni salo, ndinqumle kuwe ilungisa nongendawo.
4 Ngenxa ke enokuba ndiya kunqumla kuwe ilungisa nongendawo, ngako oko liya kuphuma ikrele lam esingxotyeni salo, liye enyameni yonke, lithabathele ezantsi lise entla;
5 yazi yonke inyama, ukuba mna Yehova ndilirholile ikrele lam esingxotyeni salo; alisayi kuba sabuya libuye.
6 Wena ke, nyana womntu, ncwina; uqhekeke amanqe, uncwine nangobukrakra, emehlweni abo.
7 Kothi, xa bathe kuwe, Uncwinelani na? uthi, Kungenxa yeendaba, ngokuba zisiza; kuya kunyibilika zonke iintliziyo, ziwe zonke izandla, incame yonke imimoya, amadolo onke angabi namandla. Yabona, ziyeza, ziya kubakho; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
8 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,
9 Nyana womntu, profeta uthi, Utsho uYehova ukuthi, Ikrele, ikrele liloliwe, likhazimlisiwe nokukhazimliswa.
10 Liloliwe ukuze lixhele libulale; likhazimlisiwe ukuze limenyezele njengombane. Ngesiba nemihlali sithi, Intonga yonyana wam le icekisa imithi yonke na?
11 Linikelwe ukuba likhazimliswe, liphathwe ngesandla; liloliwe ikrele elo, likhazimlisiwe elo, ukuba linikelwe esandleni sombulali.
12 Khala ubhomboloze, nyana womntu; ngokuba lithene mbende nabantu bam, lithene mbende nezikhulu zonke zakwaSirayeli; zizisulu zekrele kunye nabantu bam; ngako oko tywakraza ethangeni.
13 Ngokuba sekucikidiwe; hi, kothini na ukuba nentonga ecekisayo? Akuyi kuba njalo; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
14 Wena ke nyana womntu, profeta, utywakraze izandla; liphindwe okwesithathu ikrele, ikrele lababuleweyo; likrele lobuleweyo, lalowo mkhulu, elibarawulayo.
15 Ukuze intliziyo ithe amandla, zande izikhubekiso, ndiwamisele amasango abo onke ikrele elijikajikayo. Awu! Lenzelwe ukuba libe njengombane, lithiwe rhuthu ukuba libulale.
16 Tyekela ngasekunene, guqukela ekhohlo, apho lubhekisa khona uhlangothi lwakho.
17 Nam ndiya kuzitywakraza izandla zam, ndibupholise ubushushu bam, mna Yehova ndithethile.
18 Kwafika kum ilizwi likaYehova, lisithi,
19 Wena ke, nyana womntu, zimisele iindlela ezimbini, ukuze lizengazo ikrele lokumkani waseBhabheli; maziphume zweni-nye zombini, ukrole umalathiso, uwukrole emantloko endlela yomzi.
20 Misa indlela, ukuze ikrele lifike eRabha yoonyana baka-Amon, nakwelakwaYuda, eYerusalem enqatyisiweyo.
21 Kuba ukumkani waseBhabheli umise ekwahlukaneni kweendlela, emantloko eendlela zombini, ukuze ahlabe isihlabo; uhlukuhla iintolo, ubuza kwimilondekhaya, ukhangela esibindini.
22 Esandleni sakhe sokunene isihlabo sihlabe iYerusalem, ukuze kumiswe izinto zokutyhomfa, uhlatywe umkhosi wokubulala, kuphakanyiswe izwi lokuduma, kumiswe izinto zokutyhomfa emasangweni, kufunjwe udonga lokungqinga, kwakhiwe iinqaba zokubonisela.
23 Soba njengesihlabo esikhohlakeleyo kubo emehlweni abo, bafungelwe izifungo bona; ke yena wokhumbuza ubugwenxa, ukuze baxhakamfulwe.
24 Ngako oko itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ngenxa yokukhumbuza kwenu ubugwenxa benu, ekutyhilekeni kwezikreqo zenu, ukuze zibonakale izono zenu ezintlondini zenu zonke; ngenxa yokukhunjulwa kwenu, niya kuxhakamfulwa ngesandla.
25 Wena ke, mbulawa ungendawo, sikhulu sakwaSirayeli, umini yakho ifikileyo ngexesha lobugwenxa bokuphela, itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi,
26 Luya kususwa unkontsho, sithulwe nesithsaba; oko koko, namhla kunamhla; okuthobekileyo kuya kuphakanyiswa, okuphakamileyo kuya kuthotywa.
27 Ndiya kukuphenula ndikuphenule, ndikuphenule; kwanako oko akuyi kuba kuko, koda kufike lowo kukokwakhe ukugweba; ndikunike yena.
28 Wena ke, nyana womntu, profeta uthi, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ngokusingisele koonyana baka-Amon, ngokusingisele kungcikivo lwabo, ukuthi, Ikrele, ikrele lirholelwe ukuba libulale; likhazimlisiwe ukuba lidle, ukuba libe njengombane.
29 Bekubonela inkohlakalo nje, bekuhlabela amanga nje, liya kukubeka ke ezintanyeni zabangendawo ababuleweyo, abamini iya kufika ngexesha lobugwenxa bokuphela.
30 Libuyisele esingxotyeni salo. Endaweni odalelwe kuyo, ezweni lemvelo yakho, ndiya kukugweba.
31 Ndiya kuthulula phezu kwakho ubhavumo lwam. Ndiya kukubasela ngomlilo wokuphuphuma komsindo wam, ndikunikele esandleni samadoda azizityhakala, iingcibi ezonakalisayo.
32 Uya kuba kukudla komlilo; igazi lakho liya kuba phakathi kwelizwe; akuyi kukhunjulwa; kuba mna Yehova ndithethile.




Isahluko 22

1 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,
2 Wena ke, nyana womntu, uza kuwugweba na? Uza kuwugweba na umzi wamagazi? Wazise ke onke amasikizi awo.
3 Uze uthi, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Mzindini, uphalaza igazi esazulwini sawo, ukuze lifike ixesha lawo, wenze izigodo kuwo ukuze ube yinqambi!
4 Ngegazi lakho olithululeyo uzeke ityala, nangezigodo zakho ozenzileyo uzenze inqambi, wazisondeza iimini zakho, wafika eminyakeni yakho. Ngenxa yoko ndikwenza into yengcikivo ezintlangeni, nento yokucukucezwa kuwo onke amazwe.
5 Abakufuphi nabakude kuwe baya kukucukuceza; unegama lobunqambi, unesaqunge esikhulu.
6 Yabona, izikhulu zakwaSirayeli, saseso ngokwengalo yaso, zibe zikuwe, ukuze ziphalaze igazi.
7 Uyise nonina babacukucezela kuwe; owasemzini bamcudisela esazulwini sakho; iinkedama nabahlolokazi babaxinzelela phantsi kuwe.
8 Iingcwele zam uzidelile, neesabatha zam uzihlambele.
9 Amadoda anentlebendwane abekuwe, ukuze aphalaze igazi; adlela ezintabeni kuwe, enza amanyala esazulwini sakho.
10 Ubuze booyise butyhilelwe kuwe; oyinqambi ngokuba nomzi bamdlwengulela kuwe.
11 Omnye wenza amasikizi nomfazi wommelwane wakhe; omnye umenza inqambi umolokazana wakhe ngobugqwirha; omnye udlwengula udade wabo, intombi kayise, kuwe.
12 Bamkela izicengo bekuwe, ukuze baphalaze igazi; wena udle abantu ngemali, wathabatha inzala yemboleko: uyamdla ummelwane wakho ngokucudisa; undilibele; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
13 Yabona, nditywakraza izandla zam ngenxa yenzuzo yakho embi oyizuzileyo, nangenxa yamagazi akho asesazulwini sakho.
14 Intliziyo yakho iya kuma na? Izandla zakho ziya kuthi nkqi na, ngemihla endiya kukuphatha ngayo? Mna Yehova ndithethile, ndiya kwenza ke.
15 Ndiya kukuphangalalisela ezintlangeni, ndikuchithachithe emazweni, ndibugqibele ubunqambi bakho kuwe.
16 Wozihlambela emehlweni eentlanga, wazi ukuba ndinguYehova.
17 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,
18 Nyana womntu, indlu kaSirayeli isuke yaba ligwebu lentsimbi kum; bonke bephela baba lubhedu nebhekile nesinyithi nelothe, phakathi eziko; baba ligwebu lesilivere.
19 Ngako oko itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ngenxa yokuba naba ligwebu lentsimbi nonke niphela, ngako oko, yabonani, ndiya kunibutha esazulwini seYerusalem.
20 Njengokuhlanganiselwa kwesilivere nobhedu nesinyithi nelothe nebhekile phakathi eziko, ukuba umlilo uzifuthe, ukuze zinyibilike: ndiya kwenjenjalo ukunibutha ngomsindo wam, nangobushushu bam, ndinifake, ndininyibilikise.
21 Ndonifumba, ndifuthe umlilo wokuphuphuma komsindo wam kuni, ninyibilike phakathi kwawo.
22 Njengokuba isilivere inyibilikiswa phakathi eziko, niya kwenjenjalo ukunyibilikiswa phakathi kwayo; nazi ukuba mna Yehova ndibuthulule ubushushu bam phezu kwenu.
23 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,
24 Nyana womntu, yithi kulo, Ulilizwe elizulu lingasiyo, elinganelwayo ngomhla wobhavumo.
25 Lucebo lwabaprofeti balo esazulwini salo. Njengengonyama ebharhulayo, eqwenga inyamakazi, badla imiphefumlo; bahlutha into eqwetyiweyo nenqabileyo; bandisa abahlolokazi balo esazulwini salo.
26 Ababingeleli balo bayawugonyamela umyalelo wam, bazihlambele iingcwele zam; abacaluli phakathi kokungcwele nokuhlambelayo, ababonisi mahluko kokuyinqambi nokuhlambulukileyo; bayawafihla amelulo abo kwiisabatha zam, ndihlanjelwe esazulwini sabo.
27 Abathetheli balo esazulwini salo banjengeengcuka eziqwenga ixhoba, ukuba baphalaze igazi, batshabalalise imiphefumlo, ukuze bazuze inzuzo embi.
28 Abaprofeti babatyabeka ngodaka olulephukayo, bebona imibono yenkohlakalo, bebahlabela izihlabo ezingamanga, besithi, Itsho iNkosi uYehova; kanti uYehova akathethanga.
29 Abantu belizwe elo bayacudisa, bayaphanga, baxinzelela phantsi usizana nehlwempu, bacudise owasemzini ngokungesesikweni.
30 Ndafuna kubo indoda engaba luthango phakathi, ime ethutyeni phambi kwam, ikhusele ilizwe elo, ukuze ndingalitshabalalisi; ke andiyifumani.
31 Ngoko ke ndithulula ubhavumo lwam phezu kwabo, ndibagqibele ngomlilo wokuphuphuma komsindo wam, ndibanike ngokwendlela yabo entlokweni yabo; itsho iNkosi uYehova.




Isahluko 23

1 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,
2 Nyana womntu, kwakukho abafazi ababini, iintombi zamfazi mnye.
3 Bahenyuza eYiputa, bahenyuza besebancinane; acofelwa khona amabele abo; zaphathwa khona iingono zamabele zobuntombi babo.
4 Amagama abo ke nguNtente-yakhe omkhulu kubo, noNtente-yam-kuye umsakwabo; baba ngabam, bazala oonyana neentombi. Amagama abo nguSamari uNtente-yakhe, yiYerusalem uNtente-yam-kuye.
5 UNtente-yakhe wahenyuza engumkam, watshiswa kukukhanuka izithandane zakhe, ama-Asiriya, umelwane lwakhe:
6 abavethe iingubo ezimsi, amabamba neerhuluneli, amadodana aluluhle onke ephela, abamahashe bekhwele emahasheni.
7 Wakubhekisela kubo ukuhenyuza kwakhe, koonyana baseAsiriya abaluluhle bonke bephela; wathi abo bonke abetshiseka kukubakhanuka, wazenza inqambi ngezigodo zabo.
8 Akakuyeka nokuhenyuza kwakhe kwaseYiputa; ngokuba ebuncinaneni bakhe babelala naye, baziphathe iingono zamabele zobuntombi bakhe bona; bathululele ubufebe babo phezu kwakhe.
9 Ngako oko ndamnikela esandleni sezithandane zakhe, esandleni soonyana baseAsiriya, abo abetshiseka kukubakhanuka.
10 Bona babutyhila ubuze bakhe, bathabatha oonyana bakhe neentombi zakhe, bambulala ngekrele; waba ngundaba-mlonyeni kubafazi, bamgweba.
11 Wakubona oko umsakwabo, uNtente-yam-kuye, waba mandundu kunaye ukutshiseka kwakhe kukukhanuka, kwaba mandundu ukuhenyuza kwakhe kunokuhenyuza kodade wabo.
12 Watshiseka kukubakhanuka oonyana baseAsiriya, amabamba, neerhuluneli, umelwane lwakhe, abavethe ezimbejembeje; abamahashe bekhwele emahasheni, amadodana aluluhle onke ephela.
13 Ndabona ukuba uzenze inqambi, bandlela-nye bobabini.
14 Wongeza ekuhenyuzeni kwakhe; wabona amadoda ezotywe eludongeni, imifanekiso yamaKaledi ezotywe ngeqabo elibomvu,
15 enxibe iinqwemesha ezinqeni, eneenkontsho ezimfakamfele ezintloko, ebonakala engabaphathi-mikhosi onke ephela, efana noonyana baseBhabheli, belamaKaledi, izwe lokuzalwa kwabo.
16 Watshiseka kukuwakhanuka, amehlo akhe akuwabona; wathuma abathunywa kwelamaKaledi.
17 Beza ke kuye oonyana baseBhabheli esililini sokuncokolisa, bamenza inqambi ngobufebe babo; wazenza inqambi ngabo; wancothuka kubo umphefumlo wakhe.
18 Wakutyhila ukuhenyuza kwakhe, wabutyhila ubuze bakhe, wancothuka ke umphefumlo wam kuye, njengoko umphefumlo wam wancothukayo kumsakwabo.
19 Wongeza ke ukuhenyuza kwakhe, ngokukhumbula imihla yobuncinane bakhe, awahenyuza ngayo ezweni leYiputa.
20 Watshiseka kukuwakhanuka amakrexe akhe, anyama ziziinyama zamaesile, amakhanuko awo angamakhanuko amahashe.
21 Wamana ukhumbula amanyala obuncinane bakho, oko amaYiputa abephathe iingono zamabele akho, ngenxa yamabele obuncinane bakho.
22 Ngako oko, Ntente-yam-kuye, itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Yabona, ndikuxhokonxela izithandane zakho, ezo uncothukileyo kuzo umphefumlo wakho; ndizizise phezu kwakho, zivela ngeenxa zonke:

26 bakuhlube iingubo zakho, bazithabathe iimpahla zakho zokuhomba.
27 Ndowaphelisa amanyala akho nokuhenyuza kwakho kwasezweni laseYiputa, ungabi sawaphakamisela amehlo akho kuwo, ungabi salikhumbula elaseYiputa.
28 Ngokuba itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Yabona, ndiya kukunikela esandleni sabo ubathiyileyo, esandleni sabo uncothukileyo kubo umphefumlo wakho.
29 Baya kukuphatha ngentiyo, bathabathe konke ukuxelenga kwakho, bakushiye uze kanye, butyhileke ubuze bokuhenyuza kwakho, namanyala akho, nokuhenyuza kwakho.
30 Kuya kwenzeka oko kuwe, ngenxa yokuhenyuza kwakho ekulandeleni iintlanga, ngenxa enokuba uzenze inqambi ngezigodo zazo.
31 Uhambe ngendlela yomsakwenu; ndoyinikela ke indebe yakhe esandleni sakho.
32 Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Uya kuyisela indebe yomsakwenu, yona leyo inzulu, ibanzi; iya kuba yintlekisa nesigculelo, ngokuba inombilini omkhulu.
33 Uya kuzala kukunxila nasisingqala; yindebe yakwankangala kankangala indebe yodade wenu uSamari.
34 Uya kuyisela ke, uyifince, uwaqobe amagophe ayo, uzijece ngawo amabele; ngokuba ndithethile, itsho iNkosi uYehova.
35 Ngako oko itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ngenxa enokuba undilibele, wandiphosa emva komhlana wakho, uya kuwathwala nokuwathwala amanyala akho nokuhenyuza kwakho.
36 Wathi uYehova kum, Nyana womntu, uza kubagweba na ooNtente-yakhe noNtente-yam-kuye? Baxelele ke amasikizi abo.
37 Ngokuba bakrexezile, izandla zabo zinegazi; bakrexezene nezigodo zabo; kananjalo oonyana babo, ababazalela mna, babacandisele kuzo, ukuba batshiswe ngumlilo.
38 Babuye benza noku kum: bayenze inqambi ingcwele yam kwangayo loo mini, bazihlambela iisabatha zam;
39 bakuzisikela izigodo zabo oonyana babo, bangena ke engcweleni yam kwangayo loo mini, ukuze bayihlambele; yabona benjenjalo endlwini yam phakathi.
40 Phezu koko bathumele kumadoda avela kude, kwathunyelwa kuwo umthunywa; yabona, afika; wona lawo wazihlambayo umzimba ngenxa yawo, waziqaba amehlo ngomsizi, wavathela wona izivatho zakho;
41 wahlala esingqengqelweni esinobuqaqawuli, alungiselwa isithebe phambi kwaso, wabeka ke kuso isiqhumiso sam neoli yam.
42 Izwi lengxokolo latyondyoloza khona. Kumadoda aseluninzini loluntu kwaziswa abaseli basentlango, babafaka izacholo ezihlahleni zabo, nezithsaba zokuhomba ezintlokweni zabo.
43 Ndathi ke kulowo oselehagele ekukrexezeni, Ngokunje uhenyuzo lwakhe luya kukrexeza, lona ngokwalo.
44 Bamngena ke njengoko kungenwa ngako kumfazi olihenyukazi: benjenjalo ukumngena uNtente-yakhe, noNtente-yam-kuye, abo bafazi banamanyala.
45 Ke amadoda angamalungisa, wona ke aya kubagweba ngokwesiko labakrexezikazi, nangokwesiko labaphalazi begazi; ngokuba bengabakrexezikazi, zinegazi izandla zabo.
46 Ngokuba itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ndiya kubanyusela ibandla, ndibanikele ekunqakulweni nasekuphangweni;
47 ibandla libaxulube ngamatye, libasike ngamakrele alo. Liya kubabulala oonyana babo neentombi zabo, lizitshise izindlu zabo;
48 ndiwaphelise amanyala ezweni, bathethiseke abafazi bonke, bangenzi ngokwamanyala enu.
49 Baya kuwabeka ke amanyala enu phezu kwenu, nizithwale izono zezigodo zenu; nazi ukuba ndiyiNkosi uYehova.

3 Uze uyizekelisele ngomzekeliso indlu eneenkani, uthi kubo, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Beka imbiza eziko, yibeke, kananjalo ugalele amanzi kuyo.

18 Ndathetha ke nabantu kusasa; ngokuhlwa wafa umkam; ndenza ke ngengomso njengoko wayendiwisele umthetho ngako.
19 Bathi abantu kum, Akusixeleli na, ukuba ezi zintozithini na kuthi, ukuba wenjenje?
20 Ndathi kubo, Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,
21 Yithi kwindlu kaSirayeli, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Yabonani, ndiya kuyingcolisa ingcwele yam, iqhayiya lamandla enu, intanda yamehlo enu, isizondelelo somphefumlo wenu, bawe likrele oonyana benu neentombi zenu enibashiyileyo.
22 Niya kwenza ke njengoko ndenze ngako: iindevu eziphezu komlomo aniyi kuzigqubuthela, ningasidli isonka sabantu;
23 iinkontsho zenu ziya kuba sentloko kuni, neembadada zenu zibe sezinyaweni zenu; aniyi kumbambazela, nilile; ke niya kungcungcutheka ebugwenxeni benu, nigcume, omnye ekhangele komnye.
24 UHezekile woba sisimanga kuni; niya kwenza njengako konke akwenzileyo; ekuzeni kwako oko, niya kwazi ukuba ndiyiNkosi uYehova.

Ndayambathisa iLebhanon ngezimnyama zokuzila ngenxa yakhe, yonke imithi yasendle yetha amandla ngenxa yakhe.

3 yabona ikrele lilifikela ilizwe elo, yavuthela isigodlo, yabavusa abantu;
4 ke umntu othe waliva izwi lesigodlo, akavuswa, lafika ikrele elo, lamthabatha: loba sentlokweni yakhe igazi lakhe.
5 Izwi lesigodlo ulivile, akavuswa, igazi lakhe loba phezu kwakhe; evusiwe, ange ewusizile umphefumlo wakhe.
6 Umboniseli lowo, xa athe walibona ikrele lisiza, akavuthela isigodlo, akabavusa abantu; lafika ikrele, lathabatha kubo umphefumlo: lowo uthatyathwe ngobugwenxa bakhe, ke igazi lakhe ndolibiza esandleni somboniseli lowo.
7 Wena ke, nyana womntu, ndikwenze waba ngumboniseli kwindlu kaSirayeli; woliva emlonyeni wam ilizwi, ubavuselele ngokuphuma kum.
8 Ndakuthi kongendawo, Wena ungendawo, uya kufa, inene; usuke ungathethi wena, ukuba umvuselele ongendawo, emke endleleni yakhe: wofa yena ongendawo ngobugwenxa bakhe, ke igazi lakhe ndolifuna esandleni sakho.
9 Wena ke, xa uthe wamvuselela ongendawo endleleni yakhe, ukuba abuye kuyo, akabuya endleleni yakhe: wofa yena ngobugwenxa bakhe, ke wena uwuhlangule umphefumlo wakho.
10 Ke kaloku wena, nyana womntu, yithi kwindlu kaSirayeli, Niyalungisa ukuthi, Izikreqo zethu nezono zethu ziphezu kwethu; siyangcungcutheka kuzo; singathini na ukuphila?
11 Yithi kubo, Ndihleli nje, itsho iNkosi uYehova, unakanye ukuba kube mnandi kum ukufa kongendawo; kumnandi kum ukubuya kongendawo endleleni yakhe, aphile. Buyani, buyani ezindleleni zenu ezimbi! Yini na ukuba nide nife, ndlu kaSirayeli?
12 Wena ke, nyana womntu, yithi koonyana babantu bakowenu, Ubulungisa belungisa abuyi kulihlangula ngemini yokreqo lwalo; ongendawo akayi kukhubeka ngokungendawo kwakhe, ngemini yokubuya kwakhe kokungendawo kwakhe; nelungisa aliyi kuphila ngabo ngemini yokona kwalo.
13 Ndakuthi kwilungisa, inene, lophila; lize ke likholose ngobulungisa balo, lenze ngobugqwetha: bonke ubulungisa balo abuyi kukhunjulwa; lofa ngobugqwetha balo elibenzileyo.
14 Ndakuthi kongendawo, Inene, uya kufa; abuye ekoneni kwakhe, enze ngokusesikweni nangobulungisa;

25 Ngako oko yithi kubo, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Nidla into enegazi, amehlo enu niwaphakamisele ezigodweni zenu, niphalaze igazi; nolidla ilifa na ke ilizwe?
26 Nimi ngekrele lenu, nenza amasikizi, nithi elowo nimenze inqambi umfazi wommelwane wakhe; nolidla ilifa na ke izilwe?
27 Yitsho kubo ukuthi, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ndihleli nje, abo basemanxuweni baya kuwa likrele; lo usendle ndimnikele emarhamncweni, ukuba amdle; bafe yindyikitya yokufa abasezimboniselweni nasemiqolombeni.
28 Ndiya kulenza kube senkangala yakwankangala ilizwe, liphele iqhayiya lamandla alo, zibe senkangala iintaba zakwaSirayeli, kungacandi bani kuzo;
29 bazi ukuba ndinguYehova, ndakulenza kube senkangala yakwankangala ilizwe, ngenxa yamasikizi onke ababewenzile.
30 Wena ke, nyana womntu, oonyana babantu bakowenu bancokola ngawe ngasezindongeni naseminyango yezindlu, elowo ethetha nomnye, elowo nomzalwana wakhe, esithi, Khanize, sive ukuba lilizwi eliyini na eliphuma kuYehova.
31 Beza kuwe njengokuza kwabantu, bahlale phambi kwakho ngokwabantu bam, baweve amazwi akho, bangawenzi; kuba benza okukhanukwa ngumlomo wabo; intliziyo yabo ilandela inzuzo yabo embi.
32 Yabona, kubo unjengovuma ingoma emnandi, ozwi liyolileyo, olungisayo ukubetha uhadi; baweve amazwi akho, bangawenzi noko.
33 Kothi ke kwakufika oko—nanko kusiza—bazi, ukuba bekukho umprofeti phakathi kwabo.

1 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,
2 Nyana womntu, profeta ngabalusi bakwaSirayeli; profeta, uthi kubo, ngabalusi abo, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Yeha ke abalusi bakwaSirayeli, abaye bezalusa ngokwabo! Abalusi babengafanele ukwalusa umhlambi wabo, yini na?
3 Amanqatha niyawadla, uboya nizambathise ngabo; ezityetyisiweyo izimvu niyazixhela, umhlambi aniwalusi.
4 Ezityhafileyo anizomelezi, ezifayo aniziphilisi, ezaphukileyo anizibophi, eziziintsali anizibuyisi, ezidakileyo anizifuni; nizinyathela ngamandla kalukhuni.
5 Zaba lusali ngokungabi namalusi; zaba kukudla kwamarhamncwa onke asendle, zaba lusali.
6 Umhlambi wam wadungudela ezintabeni zonke, nasezindulini zonke ezinde, waba lusali umhlambi wam ebusweni bonke belizwe. Akubangakho namnye uwukhathalelayo, akwabakho namnye uwufunayo.
7 Ngako oko, balusindini, liveni ilizwi likaYehova, lisithi,
8 Ndihleli nje, itsho iNkosi uYehova, inyaniso, ngenxa enokuba umhlambi wam ulixhoba, umhlambi wam udliwa ngamarhamncwa onke asendle, ngokungabi namalusi; abalusi bam bengawukhathaleli umhlambi wam, abalusi bezalusa ngokwabo, bengawalusi umhlambi wam:
9 ngako oko, balusindini, liveni ilizwi likaYehova, lisithi,
10 Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Yabonani, ndibachasile ibalusi. Ndiya kuwubiza umhlambi wam ezandleni zabo, ndibanqumamise ekwaluseni umhlambi wam, bangabi sazalusa ngokwabo abalusi; ndiwuhlangule umhlambi wam emlonyeni wabo, ungabi saba kukudla kubo.
11 Ngokuba itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Yabonani, mna ngokwam ndiya kuwukhathalela umhlambi wam, ndiwuvelele.
12 Njengoko umalusi awuvelelayo umhlambi wakhe, ngemini yokubakho kwakhe phakathi komhlambi wakhe othiwe saa qhu, ndiya kwenjenjalo ukuwuvelela umhlambi wam; ndiwuhlangule ezindaweni zonke, owaba lusali kuzo ngemini enamafu, enamafu amnyama.
13 Ndiya kuwukhupha ezizweni, ndiwubuthe emazweni, ndiwuse emhlabeni wawo, ndiwalusele ezintabeni zakwaSirayeli, ezihlanjeni nasezindaweni zonke ezimiweyo zelizwe.
14 Ndiya kuwalusela ebutyanini obulungileyo, libe sezintabeni ezinde zakwaSirayeli idlelo lawo; edlelweni elilungileyo, uya kubutha khona, udle utyani obutyebileyo ezintabeni zakwaSirayeli.
15 Mna ndiya kuwalusa umhlambi wam, ndiwenze ubuthe mna; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
16 Ezilahlekileyo ndiya kuzifuna, ndibuyise eziziintsali, ndibophe ezaphukileyo, ndizomeleze ezifayo; ke ezityebileyo ndozitshabalalisa, nezomeleleyo ndizaluse ngokusesikweni.
17 Nina ke, mhlambi wam, itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Yabonani, ndiya kugweba phakathi kweegusha neegusha, naphakathi kweenkunzi zeegusha neenkunzi zeebhokhwe.
18 Yinto encinane na kuni, ukuthi nibudle utyani obulungileyo, nize okuseleyo kotyani nikunyhashe ngamanqina enu? nisele amanzi angcwengekileyo, niwagxobhe aseleyo ngamanqina enu?
19 Umhlambi wam udla obunyhashiweyo ngamanquna enu; usela agxojiweyo ngamanqina enu.
20 Ngako oko itsho iNkosi uYehova kuzo ukuthi, Yabonani, mna ndiya kugweba phakathi kweegusha ezityebileyo neegusha ezinqinileyo.
21 Ngenxa enokuba nityhala ngehleza nangegxalaba, nizihlabe ngeempondo zenu ezityhafileyo zonke, nide nizenze zibe lusali, zigqibe ilizwe:
22 ndowusindisa umhlambi wam, ungabi saba lixhoba, ndigwebe phakathi kweegusha neegusha.
23 Ndomisa phezu kwawo umalusi abe mnye, awaluse, umkhonzi wam uDavide; yena uya kuwalusa, abe ngumalusi wawo yena;
24 mna Yehova ndibe nguThixo wawo, umkhonzi wam uDavide abe sisikhulu phakathi kwawo; mna Yehova ndithethile.
25 Ndiya kuwenzela umnqophiso woxolo, ndiwaphelise amarhamncwa amabi elizweni, uhlale entlango ukholosile, ulale emahlathini.
26 Ndowenza wona, kwaneendawo ezingeenxa zonke endulini yam, ube yintsikelelo; ndihlise imvula ngexesha elililo; iya kuba yimvula yentsikelelo.
27 Umthi wasendle wonika isiqhamo sawo, ilizwe linike indyebo yalo, banqabe emhlabeni wabo; bazi ukuba ndinguYehova, ekuzaphuleni kwam izikeyi zedyokhwe, ndibahlangule esandleni sabo babebakhonzisa.
28 Abayi kuba saba lixhoba leentlanga, angabadli amarhamncwa elizwe; bahlale bekholosile, kungabikho ubothusayo.
29 Ndobavelisela isityalo sokuba ludumo, bangabi sasuswa yindlala ezweni, bangabi sathwala hlazo leentlanga.
30 Baya kwazi ukuba mna Yehova Thixo wabo ndinabo, bangabantu bam bona, indlu kaSirayeli; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
31 Nina ke ningumhlambi wam, umhlambi wedlelo lam; nisisintu, ndinguThixo wenu; itsho iNkosi uYehova.

3 ngako oko profeta uthi, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ngenxa enokuba, ewe, ngenxa enokuba benenze kwaba senkangala, baniginya ngeenxa zonke, ukuze nibe lilifa lamasalela eentlanga, naba semilonyeni yabanolwimi nasentlebendwaneni yabantu:
4 ngako oko, nina zintaba zakwaSirayeli, liveni ilizwi leNkosi uYehova, lisithi, Itsho iNkosi uYehova kwiintaba nakwiinduli, kwizihlambo nakwimifula, kwiindawo ezibharhileyo ezingamanxuwa nakwimizi eshiyiweyo, eyaba lixhoba nesigculelo samasalela eentlanga ezingeenxa zonke;

18 Ndaphalaza ubushushu bam phezu kwabo ngenxa yegazi, ababeliphalaze ezweni elo, nangenxa yokulenza inqambi kwabo ngezigodo zabo.
19 Ndabenza baba lusali ezintlangeni, bachithwachithwa emazweni; ndabagweba ngokweendlela zabo, nangokweentlondi zabo.
20 Bafika ezintlangeni ezo babesiya kuzo, balihlambela igama lam elingcwele; ekubeni bekusithiwa ngabo, Ngabantu bakaYehova aba, baphume ezweni lakhe.
21 Ndaba nofefe ngenxa yegama lam elingcwele, ebeyilihlambele indlu kaSirayeli ezintlangeni abaya kuzo.
22 Ngako oko yithi kwindlu kaSirayeli, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Andenzi ngenxa yenu, ndlu kaSirayeli; ndenza ngenxa yegama lam elingcwele, enilihlambeleyo ezintlangeni ebe niye kuzo.

27 Ndofaka uMoya wam ngaphakathi kwenu, ndinenze nihambe ngemimiselo yam, niwagcine amasiko am, niwenze;
28 niya kuhlala ezweni endalinika ooyihlo; nibe ngabantu bam, mna ndibe nguThixo wenu.
29 Ndiya kunisindisa ebunqambini benu bonke, ndibize ingqolowa, ndiyandise, ndinganiziseli indlala.
30 Ndosandisa isiqhamo somthi nokuphuma emasimini, ukuze ningabuyi namkeliswe isingcikivo sendlala ezintlangeni.
31 Niya kuzikhumbula ke iindlela zenu ezimbi, neentlondi zenu ezingalungileyo, nizikruqukele ngokwenu, ngenxa yobugwenxa benu nangenxa yamasikizi enu.
32 Andiyi kukwenza oku ngenxa yenu, itsho iNkosi uYehova; makwazeke oko kuni. Danani, nibe nehlazo ngenxa yeendlela zenu, ndlu kaSirayeli.
33 Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ngemini endiya kunihlambulula ngayo ebugwenxeni benu bonke, ndiya kuyenza imizi ukuba imiwe, akhiwe amanxuwa.
34 Ilizwe ebe kusenkangala kulo liya kulinywa, endaweni yokuba bekusenkangala kulo emehlweni abo bonke abadlulayo.
35 Baya kuthi, Eli lizwe, bekusenkangala kulo, lisuke laba njengomyezo wase-Eden; nemizi ebeyibharhile, ebingamanxuwa, ebigungxulwe, imiwe, inqatyisiwe.
36 Ziya kwazi ke iintlanga eziseleyo ngeenxa zonke kuni, ukuba mna Yehova ndakha into egungxulweyo, ndiyityale indawo ebe kusenkangala kuyo. Mna Yehova ndithethile, ndiya kwenza.
37 Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ngale nto ndisaya kuquqelwa yindlu kaSirayeli, ukuba ndibenzele; ndiya kubandisa babe sisintu njengomhlambi;
38 njengomhlambi ongamadini angcwele, njengomhlambi waseYerusalem ngamaxesha ayo amisiweyo; ukuzala yimihlambi yabantu, iya kuba njalo imizi engamanxuwa; bazi ukuba ndinguYehova.

19 Nodla amanqatha nihluthe, nisele igazi ninxile embingelelweni wam endinibingeleleyo;
20 nihluthe esithebeni sam ngamahashe nangabamahashe, ngamagorha namadoda onke okulwa; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
21 Ndiya kubumisa ubuqaqawuli bam ezintlangeni, ziwubone iintlanga zonke umgwebo wam endiya kuwenza, nesandla sam endiya kusisa kuzo.
22 Iya kwazi indlu kaSirayeli ukuba ndinguYehova uThixo wabo, ithabathela kuyo le mini ise naphi.
23 Neentlanga ziya kwazi ukuba indlu kaSirayeli yathinjwa ngenxa yobugwenxa babo; ngenxa enokuba bamenezayo kum, ndabusithelisa ubuso bam kubo, ndabanikela esandleni sababandezeli babo, bawa likrele bonke bephela.
24 Ndabenza ngokobunqambi babo nangokwezikreqo zabo, ndabusithelisa ubuso bam kubo.
25 Ngako oko, itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Kaloku ndiya kukubuyisa ukuthinjwa kukaYakobi, ndisikwe yimfesane ngenxa yendlu yonke kaSirayeli, ndibe nobukhwele ngegama lam elingcwele.
26 Baya kulithwala ihlazo labo, nobumenemene babo bonke ababemeneza ngabo kum, ekuhlaleni kwabo emhlabeni wabo bekholosile, kungekho ubothusayo.
27 Ekubabuyiseni kwam ezizweni, ekubabutheni kwam emazweni eentshaba zabo, ndozingcwalisa kubo emehlweni eentlanga ezininzi.
28 Baya kwazi ukuba ndinguYehova uThixo wabo, owenza ukuba bathinjelwe ezintlangeni, ndize ndibawomelisele emhlabeni wabo, ndingabuyi ndishiye namnye kubo khona.

41 Kwabakho iitafile ezine ngapha, iitafile ezine nangapha, ecaleni lesango; ziitafile ezisibhozo, zokuxhelela kuzo.
42 Kananjalo bekukho neetafile ezine ngasezinyukweni zamatye aqingqiweyo, aba yikubhite enye enesiqingatha ubude, ikubhite enye enesiqingatha ububanzi, ikubhite enye ukuphakama, ukuze babeke kuzo iimpahla zokuxhela amadini anyukayo nemibingelelo.
43 Amabhaxa angangobubanzi besandla, abe eqiniselweendlwini, ajikeleza ngeenxa zonke; yaye isezitafileni inyama yomsondezo.
44 Ngaphandle kwesango eliphakathi bekukho amagumbi amabini entendelezweni ephakathi; elinye lingasecaleni lesango lasentla, libheke ezantsi, elinye lingasecaleni lesango lasezantsi, libheke entla.
45 Wathi kum, Eli gumbi, libheke ezantsi, lelababingeleli abagcina isigxina sendlu le.
46 Igumbi elibheke entla lelababingeleli abagcina isigcina sesibingelelo. Bona bangoonyana bakaTsadoki, koonyana bakaLevi, abasondelayo kuYehova ukuba balungiselele kuye.

3 Imbonakalo ke endayibonayo, ukubonakala kwayo, yayinjengembonakalo leya, ndayibonayo ukuya kuwonakalisa kwam umzi; kwakukho neembonakalo ezinjengeembonakalo endazibonayo emlanjeni oyiKebhare; ndawa ke ngobuso.
4 Ubuqaqawuli bukaYehova beza endlwini ngendlela yesango elibheke empumalanga.
5 UMoya wandifukula, wandisa entendelezweni ephakathi; nabo ke ubuqaqawuli bukaYehova, buyizalisile indlu le.
6 Ndeva othetha kum esendlwini le; kwabakho ke umntu omi ecaleni kwam.
7 Wathi kum, Nyana womntu, khangela indawo yetrone yam, indawo yomphantsi weenyawo zam, apho ndiya kuhlala khona phakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli ngonaphakade; ingabi salenza inqambi igama lam elingcwele indlu kaSirayeli, bona nookumkani babo, ngobuhenyu babo, nangezidumbu zookumkani babo ezigangeni zabo;
8 ekumiseni kwabo umbundu womnyango wabo ngasembundwini womnyango wam, nemigubasi yabo ecaleni lemigubasi yam, iludonga lodwa phakathi kwam nabo; belenze inqambi ke igama lam elingcwele, ngamasikizi abo abawenzayo. Ndabagqibela ke ngomsindo wam.
9 Ngoku ke mabakhwelelise kum ubuhenyu babo, nezidumbu zookumkani babo, ndihlale phakathi kwabo ngonaphakade.
10 Wena ke, nyana womntu, indlu kaSirayeli yixelele le ndlu, beve ihlazo ngenxa yobugwenxa babo, basilinganise isakhiwo esilinganiselweyo ngokuhle.
11 Ukuba bathe baliva ihlazo ngenxa yezinto zonke abazenzileyo, bazise ukumeka kwendlu le nokuqulunqwa kwayo, iziphumo zayo nezingeno zayo, iimeko zayo zonke nemimiselo yayo yonke, iimeko zayo zonke nemiyalelo yayo yonke, uyibhale emehlweni abo; bakugcine konke ukuma kwayo, nemimiselo yayo yonke, bayenze.
12 Nguwo lo umyalelo wayo indlu: encotsheni yentaba, wonke umda wayo, ojikelezileyo ngeenxa zonke, uyingcwele kangcwele. Yabona, nguwo lo umyalelo wayo indlu.
13 Yiyo le imilinganiso yesibingelelo ngokweekubhite (ikubhite yikubhite nobubanzi besandla): umzantsi waso woba yikubhite, ube yikubhite ububanzi; ulungqu lwawo eludinini lwawo ngeenxa zonke lwalungangomoluko omnye weminwe. Lulo olo ufundo lwesibingelelo esi.
14 Kuthabathela emzantsini osemhlabeni, kude kuse emacaleni aphantsi, koba ziikubhite ezimbini ukuphakama, nobubanzi bube yikubhite enye; kuthabathela emacaleni lawo amafutshane, kude kuse emacaleni amade, koba ziikubhite ezine ukuphakama, nobubanzi bube yikubhite enye.
15 Intaba kaThixo yoba ziikubhite ezine; zothabathela ezikweni likaThixo, zinyuse iimpondo ezine.
16 Iziko likaThixo loba ziikubhite ezilishumi elinambini ubude balo, ishumi elinambini ububanzi balo; loba mbombo ne ngokwamacala alo omane.
17 Amacala oba ziikubhite ezilishumi elinane ubude bawo, neshumi elinane ububanzi, ngokwamacala awo omane; nolungqu ngeenxa zonke kuwo lube sisiqingatha sekubhite; umzantsi wawo ube yikubhite enye ngeenxa zonke; nezinyuko zawo mazikhangele empumalanga.
18 Wathi kum, Nyana womntu, itsho iNkosi uYehova, ukuthi, Yiyo le imimiselo yesibingelelo ngemini yokwenziwa kwaso, ukuba kunyuswe phezu kwaso amadini anyukayo, kutshizwe ngegazi kuso.
19 Uya kubanika ababingeleli, abaLevi abangabembewu kaTsadoki, abasondelayo kum, itsho iNkosi uYehova, ukuba balungiselele kum inkunzi entsha, ithole lenkomo, libe lidini lesono.
20 Wothabatha egazini layo, uliqabe ezimpondweni zaso zone, nasezimbombeni zone zamacala, naseludinini ngeenxa zonke; usenze nyulu, usicamagushele;
21 uyithabathe inkunzi entsha yedini lesono, bayitshise endaweni emisiweyo yayo indlu, ngaphandle kwengcwele.
22 Ngomhla wesibini wosondeza inkunzi yebhokhwe exhonti egqibeleleyo, ibe lidini lesono; basenze nyulu isibingelelo, njengoko senziwa nyulu ngenkunzi entsha.
23 Ekugqibeni kwakho ukusenza nyulu, wosondeza inkunzi entsha, ithole lenkomo eligqibeleleyo, nenkunzi egqibeleleyo yasempahleni emfutshane.
24 Wozisondeza phambi koYehova, ababingeleli bagalele ityuwa phezu kwazo, bazinyuse zibe lidini elinyukayo kuYehova.
25 Iintsuku ezisixhenxe uya kunikela inkunzi yebhokhwe exhonti eyedini lesono ngemini; balungiselele nenkunzi entsha elithole lenkomo, nenkunzi yasempahleni emfutshane egqibeleleyo.
26 Iintsuku ezisixhenxe bosicamagushela isibingelelo, basihlambulule; basimisele.
27 Baya kuzigqiba ezo ntsuku, kuthi ngomhla wesibhozo, nanini, ababingeleli benze amadini enu anyukayo nemibingelelo yenu yoxolo esibingelelweni, ndize ndinamkele; itsho iNkosi uYehova.

1 Wandibuyisa ngendlela yesango lengcwele elingaphandle, elibheke empumalanga; laye livaliwe.
2 UYehova wathi kum, Eli sango liya kuhlala livaliwe; aliyi kuvulwa, akuyi kungena mntu ngalo; ngokuba uYehova uThixo kaSirayeli ungene ngalo; liya kuhlala livaliwe ke.
3 Isikhulu, sisikhulu nje, siya kuhlala kulo, ukuba sidle ukudla phambi koYehova. Songena ngendlela yasevarandeni yesango, siphume kwangendlela yayo.
4 Wandisa ngendlela yesango langasentla, ebeyiphambi kwayo indlu; ndakhangela, nabo ubuqaqawuli bukaYehova buyizalisile indlu kaYehova; ndawa ngobuso.
5 Wathi kum uYehova, Nyana womntu, gqala ngentliziyo yakho, ubone ngamehlo akho, uve ngeendlebe zakho, konke endisukuba ndikuthetha kuwe, ngokusingisele kwimimiselo yonke yendlu kaYehova, nangokusingisele kwimiyalelo yayo yonke; ukugqale ngentliziyo yakho ukungena endlwini le, ezindaweni zonke zengcwele ekuphunywa ngazo.
6 Uze uthi kwabaneenkani, kwabendlu kaSirayeli, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Yanelani, ndlu kaSirayeli, ngamasikizi enu onke,
7 okubangenisa kwenu oonyana bolunye uhlanga, abangalukileyo ngentliziyo, abangalukileyo ngenyama, ukuba babe sengcweleni yam, ukuba bayihlambele indlu yam le, nakusondeza ukudla kwam, amanqatha negazi. Umnqophiso wam nawaphula ke phezu kwamasikizi enu onke;
8 anasigcina isigxina sengcwele yam; nabamisa abaya ukuba banigcinele isigxina sam engcweleni yam.
9 Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Bonke oonyana bolunye uhlanga, abangalukileyo ngentliziyo, abangalukileyo ngenyama, abayi kungena engcweleni yam, bakubo bonke oonyana bolunye uhlanga, abaphakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli.
10 Ke kwanabaLevi, abakhwelelayo kude kum, ekundwendweni kwamaSirayeli awandwendwayo kum, alandela izigodo zawo, aya kubuthwala ubugwenxa bawo.
11 Baya kwanela ukuba ngabalungiseleli engcweleni yam, bengabaveleli bamasango endlu le, belungiselela endlwini le. Abo baya kuxhelela abantu idini elinyukayo nombingelelo, bona beme phambi kwabo, ukuba babalungiselele.
12 Ngenxa enokuba babalungiselelayo phambi kwezigodo zabo, baba sisikhubekiso sobugwenxa kwindlu kaSirayeli, ngenxa yoko ndibaphakamisele isandla sam, itsho iNkosi uYehova, ukuba babuthwale ubugwenxa babo.
13 Abayi kufika kum, ukuba benzelelele kum, bangafiki kwiingcwele zam zonke, kwingcwele kangcwele yam; baya kuthwala ke ihlazo labo namasikizi abo abawenzileyo.
14 Ndobenza babe ngabagcini besigxina sendlu le ngokwenkonzo yayo yonke, nangokwezinto zonke ezenzelwa kuyo.
15 Ke bona ababingeleli abaLevi, oonyana bakaTsadoki, abasigcinayo isigxina sengcwele yam, ekundwendweni koonyana bakaSirayeli kum, bosondela bona kum, ukuba bandilungiselele, beme phambi kwam, ukuba basondeze kum inqatha negazi; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
16 Bongena bona engcweleni yam, basondele bona esithebeni sam, ukuba bandilungiselele, bagcine isigxina sam.
17 Kothi, ekungeneni kwabo ngamasango entendelezo ephakathi, bambathe iingubo zelinen; kungabikho nto yoboya kubo ekulungiseleleni kwabo emasangweni entendelezo ephakathi, naxa bakuyo indlu.
18 Zoba ziinkontsho zelinen ezintlokweni zabo, ibe ziibhulukhwe zelinen ezinqeni zabo; abayi kubhinqa, bazibilise.
19 Bothi, ekuphumeni kwabo, besinga entendelezweni engaphandle, entendelezweni engaphandle besiya ebantwini, bazihlube iingubo zabo ababelungiselela benazo, bezibeke emagumbini angcwele, bambathe ngubo zimbi, bangabangcwalisi abantu ngeengubo zabo.
20 Mabangazichebi iintloko, bangaziyeki iinwele zabo zibe ngamayakayaka; bozinquthula iintloko.
21 Mabangaseli wayini bonke ababingeleli ekungeneni kwabo entendelezweni ephakathi.
22 Umhlolokazi nomfazi owaliweyo mabangabazeki babe ngabafazi babo; bozeka iintombi eziziintombi kwimbewu yendlu kaSirayeli, kwanomhlolokazi othe waba ngumhlolokazi wombingeleli.
23 Bobayala abantu bam, ukuba bahlule okungcwele kokuhlambeleyo, babazise okuyinqambi nokuhlambulukileyo.
24 Ekubambaneni kwabantu mabeme bona, bagwebe ngokwamasiko am, bagcine imiyalelo yam nemimiselo yam ngamaxesha am onke amisiweyo, bazingcwalise iisabatha zam.
25 Mabangayi emntwini ofileyo, bazenze iinqambi; kungaba kungoyise, nonina, nonyana, nentombi yabo, nomzalwana, nodade wabo ongabanga nandoda, abangazenza iinqambi ngabo, bona bodwa.
26 Bombalela imihla esixhenxe emva kokuhlanjululwa kwakhe.
27 Ngomhla ke wokungena kwakhe engcweleni, entendelezweni ephakathi, ukuze alungiselele engcweleni, wosondeza idini lakhe lesono; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
28 Oko koba lilifa labo, ibe ndim ilifa labo; ningabaniki nzuzo kwaSirayeli; ndim inzuzo yabo.
29 Umnikelo wokudla, nedini lesono, nedina letyala, bodla ezo zinto bona; zonke izinto ezisingelwe phantsi kwaSirayeli ziya kuba zezabo.
30 Iingqalo zeentlahlela zonke ezintweni zonke, nemirhumo yonke yeento zonke, kwimirhumo yenu yonke, yoba yeyababingeleli; nengqalo yomgrayo wenu noyinika umbingeleli, ukuze ahlise intsikelelo phezu kwendlu yakho.
31 Ababingeleli abayi kudla nto izifeleyo neqwengiweyo, nokuba kusezintakeni, nokuba kusezinkomeni.

1 Ekulabeni kwenu ilizwe ngamaqashiso, ukuba libe lilifa, nomrhumela uYehova umrhumo oyinto engcwele kulo ilizwe elo: ubude bube ngamashumi omabini anamahlanu amawaka eengcongolo, ububanzi bube lishumi lamawaka. Woba ngcwele emdeni wawo wonke ngeenxa zonke.
2 Kuwo apha oba ngawasengcweleni amakhulu amahlanu ubude, ngamakhulu amahlanu obubanzi, ube mbombo-ne ngeenxa zonke, ube ziikubhite ezimashumi mahlanu zephandle elingeenxa zonke kuwo.
3 Kuyo loo ndawo ilinganisiweyo, wolinganisa ubude obungamashumi omabini anamahlanu amawaka, nobubanzi obulishumi lamawaka; ibe khona ingcwele le, ingcwele kangcwele.
4 Yona yoba yinto engcwele kulo ilizwe elo; ilunge nababingeleli, abalungiseleli bengcwele, abasondela ukuba balungiselele kuYehova; ibe yindawo yezindlu zabo, indawo engcwele ilunge nengcwele.
5 Amashumi amabini anamahlanu amawaka obude, neli shumi lamawaka obubanzi, alunge nabaLevi, abalungiseleli bendlu; oba yinzuzo yabo eyimizi yokuba bahlale.
6 Okomzi koba ngamawaka amahlanu obubanzi, anamashumi amabini anamahlanu amawaka obude, elungelelene nomrhumo ongcwele; ibe ngawendlu yonke kaSirayeli.
7 Isikhulu nosinika ngapha nangapha komrhumo ongcwele, nakokomzi phambi komrhumo ongcwele, naphambi kokomzi ngecala lasentshonalanga, nise entshonalanga, nangecala lasempumalanga, nise empumalanga; ubude bulungelelane nesinye isahlulo sezizwe, buthabathele emdeni wasentshonalanga, buse emdeni wasempumalanga.
8 Loba lilizwe laso, libe yinzuzo kuso kwaSirayeli; izikhulu zam zingabuyi zibe sabaxinzelela phantsi abantu bam; ke ilizwe zilinike indlu kaSirayeli ngokwezizwe zayo.
9 Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Yanelani, nina zikhulu zakwaSirayeli; yekani ukugonyamela nokubhuqa, nenze okusesikweni nobulungisa; yekani ukubagxotha abantu bam emafeni abo; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
10 Yibani nesikali sobulungisa, ne-efa yobulungisa, nebhate yobulungisa.
11 Iefa nebhate yoba mlinganiso mnye, ibhate ikhongozele isahlulo seshumi sehomere, ne-efa isahlulo seshumi sehomere, sibe ngokwehomere isilinganiselo sayo.
12 Ishekele yoba ngamashumi amabini eegera; amashumi amabini eeshekele, amashumi amabini anesihlanu eeshekele, ishumi elinesihlanu leeshekele, ibe yimina kum.
13 Nguwo lo umrhumo eniya kurhuma ngawo; isahlulo sesithandathu se-efa ehomereni yengqolowa, nirhume isahlulo sesithandathu se-efa ehomereni yerhasi;
14 nomlinganiso omisiweyo weoli, webhate yeoli, nirhume isahlulo seshumi sebhate ekoreni, ezibhateni ezilishumi ehomereni ke; kuba iibhate ezilishumi ziyihomere.
15 Norhuma ixhwane libe linye empahleni emfutshane engamakhulu amabini, yasemakriweni anamanzi akwaSirayeli, ibe yeyomnikelo wokudla, neyedini elinyukayo, neyemibingelelo yoxolo, ukuba bacanyagushelwe; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
16 Bonke abantu belizwe eli bosirhumela lo mrhumo isikhulu sakwaSirayeli.
17 Orholwa sisikhulu amadini anyukayo, nomnikelo wokudla, nothululwayo, emithendelekweni nasekuthwaseni kwenyanga, nasezisabatheni, nasemaxesheni amisiweyo endlu kaSirayeli. Lolungiselelwa siso idini lesono, nomnikelo wokudla, nedini elinyukayo, nemibingelelo yoxolo, ukuze icanyagushelwe indlu kaSirayeli.
18 Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ngenyanga yokuqala, ngolokuqala enyangeni leyo, wothabatha inkunzi entsha, ithole lenkomo eligqibeleleyo, uyihlambulule ingcwele ngedini lesono.
19 Umbingeleli wothabatha egazini ledini lesono elo, aliqabe emigubasini yendlu le, nasezimbombeni zone zamacala esibingelelo, nasemigubasini yesango lentendelezo ephakathi.
20 Uya kwenjenjalo nangolwesixhenxe enyangeni leyo, ngenxa yomntu olahlekayo, nangenxa yosisiyatha, niyicamagushele indlu le.
21 Ngeyokuqala inyanga, ngosuku lweshumi elinesine enyangeni leyo, noba nepasika, umthendeleko weentsuku ezisixhenxe; kodliwa izonka ezingenagwele.
22 Ngaloo mini isikhulu, ngenxa yaso nangenxa yabantu bonke belizwe eli, solungiselela inkunzi entsha yenkomo, ibe lidini lesono.
23 Iintsuku ezisixhenxe zomthendeleko somenzela uYehova idini elinyukayo; iinkunzi ezintsha zeenkomo zibe zisixhenxe, neenkunzi zeegusha ezigqibeleleyo zibe zisixhenxe ngemini, ngeentsuku zosixhenxe; nenkunzi yebhokhwe exhonti ibe lidini lesono ngemini.
24 Solungiselela umnikelo wokudla, iefa enkunzini entsha, iefa enkunzini yegusha, ihin yeoli kuyo iefa.
25 Ngenyanga yesixhenxe, ngosuku lweshumi elinesihlanu enyangeni leyo, emthendelekweni, siya kwenjenjalo ngeentsuku ezisixhenxe ngokusingisele kwidini lesono, nakwidini elinyukayo, nakumnikelo wokudla, nakwioli.

1 Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Isango lentendelezo ephakathi, elikhangele empumalanga, lohlala livaliwe ngeentsuku ezintandathu zokusebenza; ngomhla wesabatha livulwe, ngomhla wokuthwasa kwenyanga livulwe.
2 Songena isikhulu ngendlela yasevarandeni yesango, sivela ngaphandle, sime emigubasini yesango, ababingeleli balungiselele idini laso elinyukayo, nemibingelelo yaso yoxolo, siqubude embundwini wesango; siphume ke; lingavalwa isango elo kude kuhlwe.
3 Abantu belizwe eli boqubuda ekungeneni kwesango ngesabatha nasekuthwaseni kwenyanga, phambi koYehova.
4 Idini elinyukayo, esosondeza lona isikhulu kuYehova ngomhla wesabatha, loba ziimvana ezintandathu ezigqibeleleyo, nenkunzi yegusha egqibeleleyo.
5 Nomnikelo wokudla woba yiefa enkunzini leyo yegusha; ezimvaneni ezo umnikelo wokudla ube ngumnikelo wesandla saso, ihin yeoli kuyo iefa.
6 Ngosuku lokuthwasa kwenyanga, liya kuba yinkunzi entsha egqibeleleyo, ithole lenkomo, neemvana ezintandathu, nenkunzi yegusha, zigqibelele zonke.
7 Solungiselela umnikelo wokudla, iefa kuyo inkunzi entsha yenkomo, ne-efa kuyo inkunzi yegusha, kuzo iimvana ibe yinto esinokufikelela kuyo isandla saso, ibe yihin yeoli kuyo iefa.
8 Ekuzeni kwesikhulu, songena ngendlela yasevarandeni yesango, siphume kwangendlela yayo.
9 Ekuzeni ke kwabantu belizwe eli phambi koYehova ngamaxesha amisiweyo, ongene ngendlela yesango langasentla, esiza kunqula, wophuma ngendlela yesango langasezantsi; ongene ngendlela yesango langasezantsi, wophuma ngendlela yesango langasentla; akayi kubuya ngendlela yesango angene ngalo; bothi gca ukuphuma.
10 Isikhulu songena siphakathi kwabo ekungeneni kwabo; bathi ekuphumeni kwabo, siphume kunye nabo.
11 Umnikelo wokudla ngemithendeleko nangamaxesha amisiweyo woba yiefa kuyo inkunzi entsha yenkomo, ne-efa kuyo inkunzi yegusha, uthi ezimvaneni uligane nesandla saso, ibe yihin yeoli kuyo iefa.
12 Xa sithe isikhulu samenzela uYehova idini elinyukayo ngokuqhutywa yintliziyo, nokuba yimibingelelo yoxolo ngokuqhutywa yintliziyo, malivulwe isango elibheke empumalanga, silungiselele idini laso elinyukayo, nemibingelelo yaso yoxolo, njengoko silungiselelayo ngomhla wesabatha; siphume ke; balivale isango emva kokuphuma kwaso.
13 Boyilungiselela imvana emnyaka mnye, egqibeleleyo, ibe lidini elinyukayo ngemini kuYehova, balilungiselele imiso ngemiso yonke.
14 Bolungiselela umnikelo wokudla kunye nalo imiso ngemiso yonke, ube sisahlulo sesithandathu se-efa, neoli ibe sisahlulo sesithathu sehin yokunyakamisa umgubo ocoliweyo; ube ngumnikelo wokudla kuYehova; leyo yoba yimimiselo engunaphakade emiyo.
15 Bolungiselela imvana, nomnikelo wokudla, neoli, imiso ngemiso yonke, ibe lidini elinyukayo elimiyo.
16 Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Xa sithe isikhulu sampha omnye koonyana baso isipho, soba lilifa lakhe, sibe sesoonyana bakhe; yinzuzo yabo ngokwelifa.
17 Xa sithe sampha omnye kubakhonzi baso isipho elifeni laso, soba sesalowo, kude kuse kumnyaka wenkululeko, sibuyele kwisikhulu; ilifa laso loba leloonyana baso bodwa.
18 Isikhulu eso asiyi kuthabatha elifeni labantu, ukuze sibaxinzelele phantsi, bahlukane nenzuzo yabo. Sobadlisa oonyana baso ilifa kweyeyaso inzuzo; ukuze bangabi lusali abantu bam, elowo ahlukane nenzuzo yakhe.
19 Ekungeneni ngasecaleni lesango, wandisa emagumbini angcwele ababingeleli, akhangele ngentla; nanko, kukho indawo khona esiphelweni, ngasentshonalanga.
20 Wathi kum, Le yindawo apho ababingeleli bophekela khona idini letyala, nedini lesono. Bosela khona umnikelo wokudla, ukuze bangaphumi nawo, baye entendelezweni engaphandle, ukuba bangcwalise abantu.
21 Waphuma waya nam entendelezweni engaphandle, wandidlulisa emagumbini omane entendelezo; nanko, kukho intendelezo emagumbini onke entendelezo, iyintendelezo egumbini lentendelezo.
22 Emagumbini omane ayo intendelezo ibe izintendelezo ezivaliweyo: ubude buziikubhite ezimashumi mane, ububanzi buziikubhite ezimashumi mathathu, umlinganiso umnye kuloo magumbi omane.
23 Bekukho ucamba lwezakhiwo olujikelezileyo kuzo, lujikelezile kuzo zone; kukho amaziko okupheka, enziwe ngaphantsi kweengcamba ngeenxa zonke.
24 Wathi kum, Ezi zizindlu zokupheka, apho abalungiseleli bayo indlu baphekela khona umbingelelo wabantu.

1 Wandibuyisela emnyango wayo indlu; nanko, kuphuma amanzi ngaphantsi kombundu womnyango wendlu leyo, esinga ngasempumalanga; ngokuba ubuso bayo indlu bebungasempumalanga. Amana esihla amanzi, evela ngaphantsi, ecaleni lokunene kwindlu leyo, ngasezantsi kwesibingelelo.
2 Waphuma nam ngendlela yesango langasentla, wandijikelezisa ngendlela engaphandle, wandisa esangweni elingaphandle, ngendlela yelibheke empumalanga; nango, amanzi equkuqela, evela ecaleni lokunene lesango.
3 Ekuphumeni komntu obephethe ulutya lokulinganisa ngesandla, esiya ngasempumalanga, walinganisa iwaka leekubhite; wandiweza emanzini, amanzi abetha emaqatheni.
4 Walinganisa iwaka, wandiweza emanzini, amanzi abetha emadolweni. Walinganisa iwaka, wandiweza emanzini, amanzi abetha esinqeni.
5 Walinganisa iwaka, aba ngumlambo endingenakuwuwela; ngokuba amanzi ahamba phezulu, amanzi aba ngawokudadwa, umlambo ongenakuwelwa.
6 Wathi kum, Ubonile na, nyana womntu? Wandihambisa, wandibuyisa phezu kodini lomlambo lowo.
7 Ekubuyeni kwam, nanko kukho eludinini lomlambo imithi emininzi kunene, ngapha nangapha.
8 Wathi kum, La manzi aphuma aye kummandla wasempumalanga, ehle aye eArabha, aye elwandle, athi ele elwandle, aphiliswe amanzi alo.
9 Kuye kuthi ke, yonke imiphefumlo ephilileyo, enyakazelayo ezindaweni zonke othe wafika kuzo umlambokazi lowo, iphile; zibe zininzi kunene iintlanzi; ngokuba efikile khona la manzi, ophiliswa lawa; iphile yonke into ofike kuyo umlambo lowo.
10 Kothi ke kume ababambisi beentlanzi phezu kwawo, bathabathele e-En-gedi, bade baye e-En-heglayim, indawo yokwaneka iminatha; ziya kuba ngokohlobo lwazo iintlanzi zabo, njengeentlanzi zolwandle olukhulu, ukuba zininzi kunene.
11 Ke imigxobhozo yalo, namadike alo, akayi kuphila; aya kunikelwa ekubeni mtyuba.
12 Kophuma phezu komlambo, phezu kodini lwawo, ngapha nangapha, imithi yonke edliwayo. Amagqabi ayo akayi kubuna, zingapheli iziqhamo zayo; iya kuvuthwa iziqhamo ezitsha ngeenyanga zonke; ngokuba amanzi awo wona aphuma engcweleni. Iziqhamo zayo ziya kuba zezokudliwa, namagqabi ayo abe ngawokuphilisa.
13 Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Nguwo lo umda, eniya kuzabela ngawo ilizwe, ngokwezizwe ezilishumi elinazibini zikaSirayeli; uYosefu woba namacandelo amabini.
14 Ilizwe niya kulidla ilifa, elowo alidle njengowabo; ngokuba ndaphakamisa isandla sam sokuba ndilinike oyihlo; lowela kuni eli lizwe ngokwelifa.
15 Nguwo lo umda welizwe elo: ngecala langasentla wothabathela kulwandle olukhulu ngendlela yaseHetelon, ukuba uye eTsedada;
16 eHamati, naseBherota, naseSibrayim, ephakathi komda waseDamasko nomda waseHamati, naseHatsere ephakathi, esemdeni waseHawuran.
17 Umda uthabathela elwandle, ume ngeHatsare-enon, umda waseDamasko; owasentla ngasentla umda waseHamati. Licala lasentla ke elo.
18 Icala langasempumalanga, phakathi kweHawuran neDamasko neGiliyadi nelizwe lakwaSirayeli, yiYordan; nothabathela emdeni lowa, nise phezu kolwandle lwangasempumalanga ukulinganisa. Licala lasempumalanga ke elo.
19 Icala lasezantsi ngasezantsi lothabathela kwaTamare, lise emanzini embambano aseKadeshe, lihambe ngomlambo, lise kulo ulwandle olukhulu. Licala lasezantsi ngasezantsi ke elo.
20 Icala lasentshonalanga lulwandle olukhulu, luthabathela emdeni lowo, lude lulunge nokuya eHamati. Licala lasentshonalanga ke elo.
21 Nozabela ke eli lizwe ngokwezizwe zakwaSirayeli.
22 Kothi ke nilabe ngamaqashiso, libe lilifa kuni, nakubasemzini, abaphambukela kuni, abazele oonyana phakathi kwenu. Kuni boba njengabazalelwe kuloo ndawo abaphakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli; bolamkela ngamaqashiso ilifa phakathi kwezizwe zakwaSirayeli kunye nani.
23 Kuya kuthi, esizweni aphambukele kuso owasemzini, nimnike ilifa lakhe apho; itsho iNkosi uYehova.




Isahluko 48

1 Ngawo la amagama ezizwe ezo, ethabathela ekupheleni ngentla, ehamba ecaleni kwendlela yaseHetelon, ukuya eHamati, naseHatsare-enon, umda waseDamasko, ngasentla ecaleni laseHamati, libe lelakhe icala lasempumalanga nelasentshonalanga: uDan woba necandelo elinye.
2 Ngasemdeni ke kaDan, kuthabathela ecaleni lasempumalanga, kuse ecaleni lasentshonalanga: uAshere, libe linye.
3 Ngasemdeni ke ka-Ashere, kuthabathela ecaleni lasempumalanga, kuse ecaleni lasentshonalanga: uNafetali, libe linye.
4 Ngasemdeni kaNafetali, kuthabathela ecaleni lasempumalanga, kuse ecaleni lasentshonalanga: uManase, libe linye.
5 Ngasemdeni kaManase, kuthabathela ecaleni lasempumalanga, kuse ecaleni lasentshonalanga: uEfrayim, libe linye.
6 Ngasemdeni kaEfrayim, kuthabathele ecaleni lasempumalanga, kuse ecaleni lasentshonalanga: uRubhen, libe linye.
7 Ngasemdeni kaRubhen, kuthabathela ecaleni lasempumalanga, kuse ecaleni lasentshonalanga: uYuda, libe linye.
8 Ngasemdeni kaYuda, kuthabathela ecaleni lasempumalanga, kuse ecaleni lasentshonalanga, yoba ngumrhumo eniya kuwurhuma; ube ngamawaka angamashumi amabini anamahlanu eengcongolo ububanzi, ubude ke bube njengobesinye isahlulo, kuthabathela ecaleni lasempumalanga, kude kuye ecaleni lasentshonalanga; ingcwele isesazulwini sawo.
9 Umrhumo eniya kuwurhumela uYehova woba ngamashumi amabini anamahlanu amawaka ubude, ube ngamawaka alishumi ububanzi.
10 Woba ngowaba umrhumo ongcwele: ngowababingeleli; ngasentla ube ngamashumi amabini anamahlanu amawaka ubude, ngasentshonalanga ube lishumi lamawaka ububanzi, ngasempumalanga ube lishumi lamawaka ububanzi, ngasezantsi ube ngamashumi amabini anamahlanu amawaka ubude; ingcwele kaYehova yoba sesazulwini sawo.
11 Ababingeleli abangcwalisiweyo koonyana bakaTsadoki, abasigcinayo isigxina sam, abangandwendwanga ekundwendweni koonyana bakaSirayeli, njengoko bandwendwayo abaLevi,
12 woba ngowabo umrhumo emrhumeni welizwe; uyingcwele kangcwele ngasemdeni wabakaLevi.
13 Ke abaLevi bozuza isahlulo esinxulumene nomda wababingeleli, sibe ngamashumi amabini anamahlanu amawaka ubude, sibe lishumi lamawaka ububanzi; bonke ubude bube ngamashumi amabini anamahlanu amawaka, nobubanzi bube lishumi lamawaka.
14 Ke abayi kuthengisa ngento yaso, bangananisi ugayo, bangayidluliseli kwabanye intlahlela yelo zwe; ngokuba ingcwele kuYehova.
15 Ke amawaka amahlanu aseleyo ebubanzini, kumawaka angamashumi amabini anamahlanu, akangcwele; ngawomzi, ngawendawo yokuma neyephandle. Umzi woba sesazulwini sawo.
16 Yiyo le imilinganiso: icala langasentla loba ngamawaka amane anamakhulu amahlanu, icala langasezantsi libe ngamawaka amane anamakhulu amahlanu, icala lasempumalanga libe ngamawaka amane anamakhulu amahlanu, icala lasentshonalanga libe ngamawaka amane anamakhulu amahlanu.
17 Iphandle lomzi ngasentla loba ngamakhulu amabini anamashumi amahlanu, ngasezantsi libe ngamakhulu amabini anamashumi amahlanu, ngasempumalanga libe ngamakhulu amabini anamashumi amahlanu, ngasentshonalanga libe ngamakhulu amabini anamashumi amahlanu.
18 Okuseleyo ebudeni obunxulumene nomrhumo ongcwele, koba ngamawaka alishumi ngasempumalanga, kube ngamawaka alishumi ngasentshonalanga; onxulumana nomrhumo ongcwele; ungeniselo lwawo lube kukudla kwabasebenzi bawo umzi.
19 Abasebenzi abo ke bomzi bowalima, bengabasezizweni zonke zakwaSirayeli.
20 Umrhumo wonke woba ngamashumi amabini anamahlanu amawaka ubude, ube ngamashumi amabini anamahlanu amawaka ububanzi; isahlulo sesine somrhumo ongcwele nosirhumela ukuba sibe sesomzi lowo.
21 Indawo eseleyo yoba yeyesikhulu, ngapha nangapha komrhumo ongcwele, nakwinzuzo yomzi; ngaphambi kwamawaka angamashumi amabini anamahlanu omrhumo, ide iye emdeni wasempumalanga, nangasentshonalanga phambi kwamawaka angamashumi amabini anamahlanu, ngasemdeni wentshonalanga, inxulumene nezinye izahlulo, yoba yeyesikhulu; umrhumo ongcwele nengcwele yayo indlu yoba sesazulwini sayo.
22 Kuthabathela ke enzuzweni yabaLevi, kuthabathela enzuzweni yomzi, esazulwini senzuzo yesikhulu, phakathi komda kaYuda nomda kaBhenjamin, koba kokwesikhulu.
23 Eziseleyo ke izizwe: kuthabathela ecaleni lasempumalanga, kuse ecaleni lasentshonalanga: uBhenjamin woba necandelo elinye.
24 Ngasemdeni ke kaBhenjamin, kuthabathela ecaleni lasempumalanga, kuse ecaleni lasentshonalanga: uSimon, libe linye.
25 Ngasemdeni ke kaSimon, kuthabathela ecaleni lasempumalanga, kuse ecaleni lasentshonalanga: uIsakare, libe linye.
26 Ngasemdeni ke kaIsakare, kuthabathela ecaleni lasempumalanga, kuse ecaleni lasentshonalanga: uZebhulon, libe linye.
27 Ngasemdeni ke kaZebhulon, kuthabathela ecaleni lasempumalanga, kuse ecaleni lasentshonalanga: uGadi, libe linye.
28 Ngasemdeni ke kaGadi, ngasecaleni lasezantsi, ngasezantsi, umda wothabathela kwaTamare, use emanzini embambano aseKadeshe, ukhweze umlambo, use kulo ulwandle olukhulu.
29 Lilo elo ilizwe eniya kulabela izizwe zakwaSirayeli ngamaqashiso, ngokwamafa. Zizo ezo izahlulo zalo, itsho iNkosi uYehova.
30 Zizo ezi iziphelo zamacala omzi: ngecala langasentla ngamawaka amane anamakhulu amahlanu, umlinganiso ngengcongolo;
31 amasango omzi oba ngokwamagama ezizwe zakwaSirayeli, ibe ngamasango amathathu ngasentla: ibe lisango likaRubhen elinye, ibe lisango likaYuda elinye, ibe lisango likaLevi elinye.
32 Ngecala lasempumalanga yoba ngamawaka amane anamakhulu amahlanu eengcongolo; amasango ke mathathu: ibe lisango likaYosefu elinye, ibe lisango likaBhenjamin elinye, ibe lisango likaDan elinye.
33 Ngecala langasezantsi, umlinganiso yoba ngamawaka amane anamakhulu amahlanu; amasango ke mathathu: ibe lisango likaSimon elinye, ibe lisango likaIsakare elinye, ibe lisango likaZebhulon elinye.
34 Ngecala lasentshonalanga yoba ngamawaka amane anamakhulu amahlanu; amasango ke awo mathathu: ibe lisango likaGadi elinye, ibe lisango lika-Ashere elinye, ibe lisango likaNafetali elinye.
35 Ukujikeleza ke lishumi elinesibhozo lamawaka eengcongolo. Igama lawo umzi kothiwa kususela kuloo mini, nguYehova-ekhona.
