1 Ngenyanga yesibhozo, ngomnyaka wesibini kaDariyo, kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kuZekariya unyana kaBherekiya, unyana kaIdo, umprofeti, lisithi:
2 UYehova waye enoburhalarhume obukhulu kooyihlo.
3 Yithi ke kubo, Utsho uYehova wemikhosi ukuthi, Buyelani kum, utsho uYehova wemikhosi; ndobuyela kuni, utsho uYehova wemikhosi.
4 Musani ukuba njengooyihlo, ababebizwa bona ngabaprofeti bangaphambili, besithi, Utsho uYehova wemikhosi ukuthi, Khanibuye ngoku ezindleleni zenu ezimbi nasezintlondini zenu ezimbi; ke abaphulaphula, abandibazela ndlebe; utsho uYehova.

6 Kodwa amazwi am, nemimiselo yam, endayimisela abakhonzi bam abaprofeti, ayibafumananga na ooyihlo? ukuze babuye bathi, Njengoko wakunkqangiyelayo uYehova ukuba akwenze kuthi, ngokweendlela zethu nangokweentlondi zethu, wenjenjalo kuthi.
7 Ngosuku lwamashumi omabini anesine lwenyanga yeshumi elinanye, inyanga enguShebhati, ngomnyaka wesibini kaDariyo, kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kuZekariya unyana kaBherekiya, unyana kaIdo, umprofeti, lisithi,

10 Waphendula umntu obemi phakathi kwemimirtile wathi, Aba ngabathunywe nguYehova, ukuba balihambahambe ihlabathi.
11 Basiphendula isithunywa sikaYehova ebesimi phakathi kwemimirtile, bathi, Silihambahambile ihlabathi, nalo lonke ihlabathi lihleli lizolile.
12 Saphendula ke isithunywa sikaYehova, sathi, Yehova wemikhosi, koba nini na ungasikwa yimfesane wena, ngenxa yeYerusalem nemizi yakwaYuda, owayibhavumelayo le minyaka imashumi asixhenxe?
13 UYehova wasiphendula isithunywa esibe sithetha nam, ngamazwi alungileyo, ngamazwi athuthuzelayo.
14 Sathi kum isithunywa esibe sithetha nam, Memeza uthi, Utsho uYehova wemikhosi ukuthi, Ndinekhwele, ikhwele elikhulu, ngeYerusalem nangeZiyon.
15 Ndinoburhalarhume obukhulu kuzo iintlanga ezihleli ngokonwaba; ngokokuba bendinoburhalarhume mna umzuzwana, ke zona zongezelelela ububi.
16 Ngako oko, utsho uYehova ukuthi, Ndiyibuyele iYerusalem ngemfesane; indlu yam iya kwakhelwa khona, utsho uYehova wemikhosi; ulutya lokulinganisa luya kolulwa phezu kweYerusalem.
17 Buya umemeze, uthi, Utsho uYehova wemikhosi ukuthi, Imizi yam isaya kuphalala okulungileyo; uYehova usaya kuyithuthuzela iZiyon, ayinyule iYerusalem.
18 Ndaphakamisa amehlo am, ndakhangela, nanzo iimpondo, zine.
19 Ndathi kwisithunywa esibe sithetha nam, Ziyintoni na ezi? Sathi kum, Ezi ziimpondo ezichithachithe uYuda, uSirayeli, neYerusalem.
20 UYehova wandibonisa iingcibi zokukhanda, zine.
21 Ndathi, Aba baze kwenza ntoni na? Sathetha sathi, Ezi ziimpondo ezichithachithe uYuda, ngokokude kungabikho bani uphakamisa intloko yakhe: aba ke baze kuzothusa, baziwise phantsi iimpondo zeentlanga, eziphakamise uphondo ezweni lakwaYuda, ukuba zilichithachithe.

11 UYehova uya kucanda kulwandle lwembandezelo, abethe emazeni olwandle, zitshe zonke iziziba zoMnayile; lithotywe iqhayiya laseAsiriya, imke intonga yaseYiputa.
12 Ndobomeleza ngoYehova, bahambahambe egameni lakhe; utsho uYehova.

1 Vula amasango akho, Lebhanon, uyitshise ngomlilo imisedare yakho.
2 Bhomboloza, msipres, ngokuba kuwe umsedare, ngenxa yokuba iingangamsha zibhuqiwe. Bhombolozani, mioki yaseBhashan, ngokuba lihlahliwe ihlathi elinwabileyo.
3 Yivani ukubhomboloza kwabalusi, ngokuba bubhuqiwe ubungangamsha babo! Yivani ukubharhula kweengonyama ezintsha, ngokuba libhuqiwe iqhayiya laseYordan!
4 Watsho uYehova uThixo wam, ukuthi, Yalusa umhlambi wezixhelwayo;
5 obathengi bawo bawubulalayo, bathi abanatyala; nabathengisa ngawo bathi, Makabongwe uYehova, ndinobutyebi; nabalusi bawo abawucongi.
6 Ngokuba andiyi kubuya ndibaconge abemi behlabathi; utsho uYehova. Yabona, abantu ndibanikela, elowo esandleni sommelwane wakhe, nasesandleni sokumkani wakhe, baliqobe ilizwe, ndingabahlanguli esandleni sabo.
7 Ndawalusa ke umhlambi wezixhelwayo, kunye nezinqinileyo zomhlambi. Ndathabatha iintonga zambini, enye ndathi nguMnandi, enye ndathi nguZintya; ndawalusa ke umhlambi.
8 Ndabetha bathishwaka abalusi abathathu nganyanga-nye; ndazekaneka ngabo, ndanezothe kubo.
9 Ndathi, Andiyi kunalusa; efayo mayife; nethi shwaka mayithi shwaka, neziseleyo mazidlane inyama.
10 Ndathabatha intonga yam, uMnandi, ndayaphula, ukuze ndiwaphule umnqophiso wam endanqophisana ngawo nezizwe zonke.
11 Waphulwa ke ngaloo mini; zazi ngokunjalo ezinqinileyo zomhlambi, ebe zindiphulaphule, ukuba lilizwi likaYehova eli.
12 Ndathi kuwo, Ukuba kulungile emehlweni enu, etheni umvuzo wam; ukuba akulungile, yekani. Bandilinganisela ke umvuzo wam, amashumi amathathu esilivere.
13 Wathi uYehova kum, Yiphose kumbumbi, ixabiso elingengangani, abandimisela lona. Ndawathabatha ke amashumi amathathu esilivere, ndawaphosa kumbumbi endlwini kaYehova.
14 Ndayaphula intonga yam yesibini, uZintya, ukuze ndibutshitshise ubuzalwana phakathi koYuda noSirayeli.
15 Wathi uYehova kum, Phinda uthabathe impahla yomalusi osisimathane.
16 Ngokuba, yabona, ndivelisa umalusi elizweni apha, ongayi kuzivelela eziza kuthi shwaka; akayi kuzifuna ezilusali; akayi kuziphilisa ezaphukileyo; akayi kuzondla ezimiyo; inyama yezityebileyo uya kuyidla, awalimaze amanqina azo.
17 Yeha, umalusi ongento, owulahlayo umhlambi! Ikrele malibe phezu kwengalo yakhe, neliso lakhe lasekunene! Ingalo yakhe iya koma kanye, neliso lakhe lasekunene licime okukanye.

1 Isihlabo selizwe likaYehova, esisingisele kuSirayeli. Utsho uYehova, umaneki wezulu, umseki wehlabathi, umenzi womoya womntu phakathi kwakhe, ukuthi,
2 Yabona, iYerusalem ndiyenza ibe yindebe enombilini, yokuhexisa zonke izizwe ngeenxa zonke, imfikele noYuda ekungqingweni kweYerusalem.
3 Kothi ngaloo mini, ndiyenze iYerusalem ibe lilitye elingumthwalo ezizweni zonke; bonke abalifunqulayo baya kuzisikisa, bazilimazise, ziyihlanganyele zonke iintlanga zehlabathi.
4 Ngaloo mini, utsho uYehova, ndiya kuwabetha othuke amahashe onke, ndibabethe babe nomgada abakhweli bawo, ndiwavule amehlo am phezu kwendlu kaYuda, onke amahashe ezizwe ndiwabethe abe ziimfama.
5 Zothi iinkosana zakwaYuda ezintliziyweni zazo, Bangamandla am abemi baseYerusalem, ngoYehova wemikhosi, uThixo wabo.
6 Ngaloo mini ndiya kuzenza iinkosana zakwaYuda zibe njengokhamba lomlilo ezinkunini, nanjengezikhuni ezitshangaziswayo ezithungwini, zizitshise ngasekunene nangasekhohlo izizwe zonke ngeenxa zonke; iYerusalem ibuye imiwe esikhundleni sayo eYerusalem.
7 UYehova uya kusindisa iintente zakwaYuda kuqala, ukuze isihombo sendlu kaDavide, nesihombo sabemi baseYerusalem, singazikhulisi ngaphezu koYuda.
8 Ngaloo mini uYehova uya kubakhusela ubemi baseYerusalem; athi okhubekayo phakathi kwabo abe njengoDavide ngaloo mini; indlu kaDavide ibe njengoThixo, njengesithunywa sikaYehova phambi kwabo.
9 Kothi ngaloo mini, ndifune ukuzitshabalalisa zonke iintlanga eziyingenelayo iYerusalem.
10 Ndothululela phezu kwendlu kaDavide, naphezu kwabemi baseYerusalem, uMoya wokubabala nowokutarhuzisa, babheke kum mna bamhlabileyo amahlanza; bammbambazelele njengokumbambazelelwa kozelwe wamnye, babe krakra ngenxa yakhe, njengokrakra ngenxa yamazibulo akhe.
11 Ngaloo mini siya kuba sikhulu isililo eYerusalem, sibe njengesililo saseHadade-rimon esihlanjeni seMegido.
12 Liya kulila ilizwe, imizalwane ngemizalwane iyodwa; umzalwane wendlu kaDavide uwodwa, abafazi babo bebodwa; umzalwane wendlu kaNatan uwodwa, abafazi babo bebodwa;
13 umzalwane wendlu kaLevi uwodwa, abafazi babo bebodwa; umzalwane wamaShimehi uwodwa, abafazi bawo bebodwa;
14 yonke imizalwane eseleyo, imizalwane ngemizalwane iyodwa, nabafazi babo bebodwa.

1 Ngaloo mini kuya kubakho ithende elivulelwe indlu kaDavide nabemi baseYerusalem, ngenxa yesono nangenxa yokungcola.
2 Kothi ngaloo mini, utsho uYehova wemikhosi, ndiwanqumle amagama ezithixo elizweni, zingabi sakhunjulwa; nabaprofeti nomoya wobunqambi ndibagqithise, bangabikho ezweni apha.
3 Kothi xa athe wabuya waprofeta ubani, bathi kuye uyise nonina abamzalayo. Akuyi kuphila, kuba uthethe ubuxoki egameni likaYehova. Uyise nonina abamzalayo bomhlaba amahlanza ngenxa yokuprofeta kwakhe.
4 Kothi ngaloo mini, badane abaprofeti, elowo ngumbono wakhe, ekuprofeteni kwakhe, bangambathi ngubo ixhonti yokuze bakhohlise.
5 Wothi, Andimprofeti, ndingumntu olima umhlaba; kuba wandithenga umntu ndisemncinane.
6 Kothiwa kuye, Ayini na la manxeba asezandleni zakho? athi, Ngandangxwelerhwa ngawo endlwini yabazizihlobo zam.
7 Krele, vuka usukele phezulu kumalusi wam, kumfo ongummelwane, utsho uYehova wemikhosi; betha kumalusi, umhlambi ube lusali; ndisibuyisele isandla sam phezu kwezincinane.

1 Yabonani, kuza imini eyekaYehova, kwabiwe amaxhoba akho esazulwini sakho.
2 Ndozihlanganisela eYerusalem zonke iintlanga ukuba zilwe; umzi uthinjwe, ziphangwe izindlu, badlwengulwe abafazi; siphume isiqingatha somzi sithinjwe; ke amasalela abantu anganqunyulwa wona kuwo umzi.
3 Uya kuphuma ke uYehova, alwe nezo ntlanga, njengemini yokulwa kwakhe, ngemini yomdibaniso.
4 Ziya kuma iinyawo zakhe ngaloo mini phezu kweNtaba yemiNquma, ephambi kweYerusalem ngasempumalanga, icandeke iNtaba yemiNquma phakathi, ithabathele empumalanga ise entshonalanga, ibe sisihlambo esikhulu kakhulu; sisunduzeke isiqingatha sentaba sisinge entla, esinye isiqingatha sayo sisinge ezantsi.
5 Nosabela esihlanjeni seentaba zam, kuba isihlambo seentaba ezo siya kufika naseAtsele; nisabe njengoko nasabayo ngenxa yenyikima emihleni kaUziya ukumkani wakwaYuda, eze uYehova uThixo wam, eneengcwele zakhe zonke.
6 Kothi ngaloo mini kungabi mhlophe, iinkwenkwezi ezinendili zibe luzizi.
7 Kuya kuba yimini eyodwa; yona iya kwazeka kuYehova; ayimini, ayibusuku; kuthi ngexa langokuhlwa kube mhlophe.
8 Kothi ke ngaloo mini, kuphume eYerusalem amanzi aphilileyo: esinye isiqingatha sawo siye kulwandle lwasempumalanga, esinye isiqingatha sawo siye kulwandle lwasentshonalanga; kube njalo ehlotyeni nasebusika.
9 UYehova woba ngukumkani phezu kwehlabathi lonke; ngaloo mini iya kuba nguYehova yedwa, negama lakhe lodwa.
10 Ilizwe lonke liya kujika libe njengeArabha, lithabathele eGebha lise eRimon, ezantsi kweYerusalem; liphakame, lihlale esikhundleni salo, lithabathele esangweni lakwaBhenjamin, lise endaweni yesango lokuqala, lise esangweni lembombo; lithabathele enqabeni ende yakwaHananeli, lise ezixovulelweni zokumkani.
11 Bohlala kulo, kungabi sabakho kusingela phantsi; ihlale iYerusalem ikholosile.
12 Siso esi isibetho aya kuzibetha ngaso uYehova zonke izizwe eziyiphumele umkhosi iYerusalem: uya kuyingcungcuthekisa inyama yomntu, emi ngeenyawo zakhe, aphelele amehlo akhe emakrolomeni awo, luphelele ulwimi wakhe emlonyeni wakhe.
13 Kothi ngaloo mini, sibe sikhulu isaqunge phakathi kwazo, siphuma kuYehova; babambe elowo isandla sommelwane wakhe, isandla sakhe siphakamele isandla sommelwane wakhe.
14 Naye uYuda uya kulwa nazo eYerusalem; buhlanganiswe ubutyebi beentlanga zonke ezingeenxa zonke, igolide, nesilivere, neengubo, into eninzi kakhulu.
15 Soba njalo isibetho kumahashe, nakoondlebende, nakwiinkamela, nakunaesile, nakwiinkomo zonke eziya kuba seminqubeni leyo, sibe njengeso sibetho.
16 Othi onke amaqongqolo eentlanga zonke ezibe ziyingenele iYerusalem, enyuke iminyaka ngeminyaka, aye kumnqula uKumkani, uYehova wemikhosi, enze umthendeleko weminquba.
17 Kothi emizalwaneni yehlabathi, osukuba engenyuki aye kumnqula eYerusalem uKumkani, uYehova wemikhosi, anganelwa mvula.
18 Uya kuthi umzalwane wamaYiputa ongathanga unyuke uze, anganelwa mvula; yoba sisibetho, aya kubetha ngaso uYehova zonke iintlanga ezingenyukiyo ziye kwenza umthendeleko weminquba.
19 Siya kuba seso isohlwayo sesono seYiputa, nesohlwayo sesono seentlanga zonke ezingenyukiyo ziye kwenza umthendeleko weminquba.
20 Ngaloo mini kuya kubhalwa emankentezeni amahashe, kuthiwe, bubungcwele kuYehova; neembiza endlwini kaYehova zoba njengezitya zokutshiza eziphambi kwesibingelelo.
21 Zothi zonke iimbiza eYerusalem nakwaYuda zibe ngcwele kuYehova wemikhosi; beze bonke ababingelelayo, bathabathe kuzo, baphekele kuzo; ngaloo mini kungabi sabakho mKanan endlwini kaYehova wemikhosi.
