2 awathi uAbraham wamabela nesishumi sezinto zonke (esithi okunene, ukuqala ukuthetha ngentetho evakalayo, ngukumkani wobulungisa, kodwa kamva abe nangukumkani weSalem, oko kukuthi, ngukumkani woxolo;
3 engenayise, engenanina, engenamlibo wakuzalwa, engenasiqalo samihla, engenasiphelo sabomi, enziwe wafana naye uNyana kaThixo): lo uhleli engumbingeleli ngokungapheliyo.
4 Bonani ke ukuba mkhulu kwalowo, wathi uAbraham umawokhulu wamnika nesishumi emaxhobeni, awona alinqatha.
5 Abo okunene bakoonyana bakaLevi, babamkelayo ububingeleli, banomthetho wokubanga isishumi kubo abantu ngokomthetho; oko kukuthi, kubo abazalwana babo, nakuba bephume esinqeni sika-Abraham.
6 Kodwa yena, ongenamlibo wakuzalwa uphumayo kubo, ubange isishumi kuAbraham, wasikelela lowo unamadinga.

9 Ukutsho ke ndithi, kubangwe ngoAbraham isishumi nakuLevi, lo wamkelayo izishumi;
10 kuba ubesesinqeni sikayise, oko uMelkitsedeke wamhlangabezayo.
11 Ke ngoko, ukuba okunene inzaliseko ibingabakho ngobubingeleli bakwaLevi (kuba abantu bewiselwe owobubingeleli umthetho), bekusafuneka ngantoni na ke, ukuba kubuye kuvele mbingeleli wumbi ngokohlobo lukaMelkitsedeke, angabizwa ngokohlobo luka-Aron?

13 Kuba lowo, zithethwa ngaye ezi zinto, waye engowasizwe simbi, ebekungekho namnye kuso ubesinyamekele isibingelelo.
14 Kuba kusekuhleni kanye, ukuba iNkosi yethu iphume kwesikaYuda isizwe, eso angathethanga nto ngaso uMoses ngobubingeleli.
15 Kwaza kwasekuhleni ngakumbi, ukuba kuvela mbingeleli wumbi, ngokokufana noMelkitsedeke,
16 ongathanga amiswe ngokomyalelo womthetho ongowenyama; wamiswa ngokwamandla obomi obungenakupheliswa.
17 Kuba ungqina ngokuthi, Wena ungumbingeleli ngonaphakade, Ngokohlobo lukaMelkitsedeke.
18 Kuba okunene kutshitshiswa umthetho owandulelayo, ngenxa yokuswela amandla, nokungancedi lutho kwawo
19 (kuba umthetho lowo awuzalisanga nto); ke kungeniswe phezu kwawo elona themba lilungileyo; esisondela ngalo kuye uThixo.
20 Kanjalo, ngangokuba engamiswanga, kungabangakho sifungo (kuba bona aba okunene benziwe ababingeleli kungafungwanga;
21 kodwa yena umiswe ngokufunga kwalowo wathi kuye, Yafunga iNkosi, ayiyi kuzohlwaya: Wena ungumbingeleli ngonaphakade, ngokohlobo lukaMelkitsedeke):
22 ngangoko ke uYesu waba ngummeli wowona ulungileyo umnqophiso.
23 Bathe bona ababingeleli baba baninzi, ngenxa yokuba ukufa kwakungavumi ukuba bahlale behleli;
24 ke yena, ngenxa yokuba ehleli ngonaphakade, unobubingeleleli obungenakudlula.
25 Ngoko unako nokubasindisa kanye abo bezayo ngaye kuThixo, ehlala ehleli nje ukuba abathethelele.
26 Kuba ubesifanele umbingeleli omkhulu onjalo, ongcwele, ongenabubi, ongenabala, owahlukileyo kubo aboni, othe waba ngaphezu kwalo izulu;
27 ekungafunekiyo ukuba athi imihla ngemihla, njengababingeleli abakhulu abaya, anyuse kuqala amadini ngenxa yezono ezizezakhe, andule ukunyusa ngenxa yezabantu; kuba oko wakwenza kwaba kanye, ekuzinyuseni ngokwakhe ngokwedini.
28 Kuba umthetho umisa abantu benobulwelwe, babe ngababingeleli abakhulu; ke lona ilizwi lesifungo, esingasemva komthetho, limise uNyana, egqibelele ngonaphakade.

4 Kuba okunene, ukuba ebesemhlabeni, ubengayi kukha abe mbingeleli, bekho nje ababingeleli abayisondezayo iminikelo ngokomthetho:
5 bona bathi bakhonze umzekelo nesithunzi sezinto zasemazulwini, kwanjengokuba uMoses wayehlatyelwe nguThixo, xa abeza kuwufeza umnquba; kuba wathi, Khangela ukuba uzenze zonke izinto ngokomfuziselo owawuboniswayo entabeni.
6 Kodwa kungoku, uzuze umbuso ogqithiseleyo kulowo, kangangokuba engumlamleli womnqophiso olungileyo ngakumbi, wona usekwe phezu kwawona madinga alungileyo.
7 Kuba, ukuba ubungenakusoleka lowo wokuqala, ubungayi kufunelwa ndawo owesibini.
8 Kuba uthi kubo, esola, Yabona, kuza imihla, itsho iNkosi, Endiya kuzalisekisa phezu kwendlu kaSirayeli, naphezu kwendlu kaYuda, umnqophiso omtsha;

10 Ngokuba nangu wona umnqophiso, endiya kuwenzela indlu kaSirayeli Emva kwaloo mihla, itsho iNkosi: Ndiya kuthi, ndiyibeke imithetho yam engqondweni yabo, Ndiyibhale ezintliziyweni zabo, Ndibe nguThixo kubo, Nabo babe ngabantu kum.
11 Kanjalo abayi kukha bafundise elowo ummelwane wakhe, Elowo umzalwana wakhe, esithi, Yazi iNkosi; Ngokuba baya kundazi bonke, Bethabathela komncinane wabo, base komkhulu wabo.
12 Ngokuba ndiya kukuxolela ukungalungisi kwabo, Nezono zabo, nokuchasa kwabo umthetho, ndingabi sakukhumbula.
13 Ngokuthi oku, Omtsha, uwaluphalisile owokuqala. Ke loo nto yalupheleyo, yalixhego, iseyisondele ekuthini shwaka.

5 Ke ngaphezu kwayo kwema iikerubhi zobuqaqawuli, zisibekele isicamagushelo; izinto ezo esingenakuthetha ngazo ngazinye ngoku.
6 Ke kaloku, zakubon’ ukuba zenziwe ngokunjalo ezo zinto, ababingeleli bangena okunene amaxa onke kowokuqala umnquba, beyifeza imibuso kaThixo.

15 Nangenxa ke yoko, ungumlamleli womnqophiso omtsha, ukuze bathi abo babiziweyo (kwakubon’,ukuba kubekho ukufa okuhlawulela izigqitho, ezibe ziphantsi kwawo umnqophiso wokuqala), balamkele idinga lelifa elingunaphakade.
16 Kuba apho kukhoyo umnqophiso womyoleli, kufuneka ukuba kucace ukufa kwalowo unqophisileyo.
17 Kuba umnqophiso uqiniseka bakuba befile, ekubeni ungaze ube namandla xenikweni asadla ubomi lowo unqophisileyo.
18 Ekuthe ngoko nowokuqala awasungulwa kungekho gazi.
19 Kuba kuthe, kwakubon’ ukuba umthetho wonke uxeliwe nguMoses ebantwini bonke ngokomyalelo, walithabatha igazi lamathole neleebhokhwe, ndawonye namanzi, noboya obubomvu, nehisope, wafefa incwadi ngokwayo, kwanabantu bonke;
20 esithi, Eli ligazi lawo umnqophiso, aniwisele umthetho ngawo uThixo.
21 Nomnquba ke, nazo zonke iimpahla zombuso, wazifefa ngokunjalo ngegazi.
22 Kananjalo ngokomthetho ndingade ndithi, zonke izinto ziphantse ukuba zihlanjululwe ngegazi; kungaphalalanga gazi, akubikho kuxolelwa.
23 Kwafuneka ngoko, ukuba okunene izizekelo zezinto ezisemazulwini zihlanjululwe ngezinto ezinjalo, kodwa zona iziqu zazo ezasemazulwini zihlanjululwe ngamadini alungileyo kunalawo.
24 Kuba uKristu akangenanga kweyona ngcwele inokwenziwa ngezandla, engumfuziselo weyenyaniso; ungene kuwo amazulu ngokwawo, ukuba abonakale ngoku ebusweni bukaThixo ngenxa yethu.
25 Kananjalo akangenanga ukuze azisondeze futhi, njengokuba umbingeleli omkhulu ebengena kweyona ngcwele iminyaka ngeminyaka, enegazi lenye into;
26 okanye ange emelwe kukuba abe ebeve ubunzima futhi, kuseloko lasekwayo ihlabathi. Ke uthe ngoku, ekufinyezweni kwawo amaphakade, wabonakalaliswa kwaba kanye, ukuba atshitshise isono ngelilelakhe idini.
27 Ke kwanjengokuba ke abantu bemiselwe ukuba bafe kube kanye, ize ke emveni koko ibe ngumgwebo:
28 ngokunjalo uKristu, esondezwe kwaba kanye, ukuba asithwale asisuse isono sabaninzi, uya kuthi okwesibini, ngaphandle kwesono, abonakale kwabo bamlindileyo, ezisa usindiso.

26 Kuba, xa sithi sone ngabomi, emveni kokuba sakwamkelayo ukwazi inyaniso, akusasele dini ngenxa yezono;
27 sekusele ke ukulinda okoyikekayo kakhulu, umgwebo nomsindo womlilo, oza kudla abo bachasileyo.

20 Kuba babengenakukuthwala oko babeyalwa ngako; nokuba ithe inkomo yayichukumisa intaba, ibiya kuxulutywa ngamatye, ithi mhlawumbi ibinzwe ngomkhonto;
21 yaza loo nto yabonakalayo yoyikeka, kangangokuba uMoses athi, Ndiyoyika kakhulu, ndiyagubha.
22 Nisuke nina nafika eZiyon, entabeni nasemzini woThixo ophilileyo, kwiYerusalem yasemazulwini, nakumawakawaka ezithunywa zezulu,
