5 nakuYesu Kristu, oliNgqina elithembekileyo, Owamazibulo kubo abafileyo, uMphathi wookumkani bomhlaba. Kulowo wasithandayo, wasikhulula ezonweni zethu ngelilelakhe igazi,

9 Xa yalivulayo elesihlanu itywina, ndayibona ngaphantsi kwesibingelelo imiphefumlo yabo babesikwe ngenxa yelizwi likaThixo, nangenxa yobungqina ababenabo.

13 Yaphendula enye indoda enkulu, isithi kum, Aba bathiwe wambu ngeengubo ezinde ezimhlophe bangoobani na? bevela phi na?
14 Ndithi kuyo, Nkosi, nguwe owaziyo. Yathi kum, Aba ngabaphumayo embandezelweni enkulu, bazihlamba iingubo zabo ezinde, bazenza mhlophe egazini leMvana.
15 Ngenxa yoko baphambi kwetrone kaThixo, bemkhonza imini nobusuku etempileni yakhe; nalowo uhleli phezu kwetrone uya kuba ngumnquba phezu kwabo.
16 Abayi kuba salamba, abayi kuba sanxanwa; aliyi kubawela nelanga, nabunye ubushushu;
17 ngokuba iMvana esesazulwini setrone iya kubalusa, ibakhokelele emithonjeni ephilileyo yamanzi; waye uThixo eya kuzisula iinyembezi zonke emehlweni abo.

7 Sathi esokuqala isithunywa savuthela ixilongo, kwabakho isichotho nomlilo, ziphithikezwe negazi, zaphoswa emhlabeni; saza isahlulo sesithathu semithi satshiswa, nabo bonke utyani obuluhlaza batshiswa.
8 Sathi esesibini isithunywa savuthela ixilongo, kwanga kuphoswa intaba enkulu, isitsha ngumlilo, elwandle; saza isahlulo sesithathu solwandle saba ligazi;

10 Sathi esesithathu isithunywa savuthela ixilongo, kwawa ezulwini inkwenkwezi enkulu, ivutha njengesibane, yawa phezu kwesahlulo sesithathu semilambo, naphezu kwemithombo yamanzi.
11 Igama lenkwenkwezi leyo kuthiwa nguMhlonyane; saza isahlulo sesithathu samanzi saba ngumhlonyane; yathi into eninzi yabantu yafa ngawo amanzi, ngokuba aba krakra.
12 Sathi esesine isithunywa savuthela ixilongo, saza sabethwa isahlulo sesithathu selanga, nesahlulo sesithathu senyanga, nesahlulo sesithathu seenkwenkwezi, ukuze isahlulo sesithathu sazo sibe mnyama, sithi isahlulo sesithathu sayo imini singakhanyi, bube njalo nobusuku.
13 Ndabona, ndeva olunye ukhozi luphaphazela esazulwini samazulu, lusithi ngezwi elikhulu, Yeha! yeha! yeha! abo bemiyo phezu komhlaba, ngawo amazwi aseleyo exilongo lezithunywa ezithathu, ezisaza kuvuthela amaxilongo.




Isahluko 9

1 Sathi esesihlanu isithunywa savuthela ixilongo; ndabona inkwenkwezi iphuma ezulwini, yawela emhlabeni; sanikwa isitshixo sequla lenzonzobila.
2 Salivula iqula lenzonzobila. Kwenyuka umsi uphuma equleni apho, njengomsi weziko elikhulu, lamnyama ilanga nesibhakabhaka ngumsi wequla elo.
3 Emsini apho kwaphuma iinkumbi, ezeza emhlabeni, zanikwa igunya, njengokuba benegunya oonomadudwane bomhlaba.
4 Kwathiwa kuzo, ize utyani bomhlaba zingaboni, nanye into eluhlaza, nanye into engumthi; ibe ngabantu bodwa, bona abo bangenalo itywina likaThixo emabunzini abo.
5 Zanikwa igunya lokungababulali, bathuthunjelwe nje kodwa iinyanga ezintlanu; intuthumbo yazo yayinjengentuthumbo yoonomadudwane, xa athe wamhlaba umntu.
6 Ngaloo mihla abantu baya kukufuna ukufa, bangakufumani; baya kukunqwenela ukufa, kusuke ukufa kusabe kubo.
7 Iimfano zeenkumbi ezo, zibe zifana namahashe, elungiselwe imfazwe, ezintloko izizithsaba ezifana negolide, nobuso bazo bunjengobuso babantu.
8 Zaye zineenwele ezingathi ziinwele zamankazana, namazinyo azo engathi ngawengonyama.
9 Zaye zinezigcina-zifuba ezingathi zizigcina-zifuba zentsimbi, isandi samaphiko azo singathi sisandi seenqwelo zamahashe amaninzi, ebaleka esiya emfazweni.
10 Zinemisila efana neyoonomadudwane, kukho nezamvila emisileni yazo; igunya lazo lilelokona abantu iinyanga ezintlanu.
11 Zinokumkani phezu kwazo, usisithunywa senzonzobila, ogama lakhe ngesiHebhere linguAbhadon, ngesiGrike unegama elinguApoliyon.
12 Owokuqala uyeha udlule; yabona, kuza ooyeha ababini emva koko.
13 Sathi esesithandathu isithunywa savuthela ixilongo, ndeva izwi liphuma ezimpondweni zone zesibingelelo segolide esisemehlweni kaThixo,
14 lisithi kwisithunywa sesithandathu esasinexilongo, Zikhulule izithunywa ezine ezikhonkxwe emlanjeni omkhulu ongumEfrati.
15 Zaza zakhululwa izithunywa zozine, ezazilungiselwe ilixa nemini nenyanga nomnyaka, ukuze zibulale isahlulo sesithathu sabantu.
16 Laye inani lemikhosi yamahashe lizizigidi zezigidi eziphindeke kabini; ndaliva inani layo.
17 Ndawabona ngokunjalo amahashe embonweni lowo, nabo babehleli phezu kwawo, benezigcina-zifuba ezimlilo, nezimsi, nezisulfure; iintloko zamahashe zingathi ziintloko zeengonyama, emlonyeni wawo kuphuma umlilo, nomsi, nesulfure.
18 Ngezo nto zontathu sabulawa isahlulo sesithathu sabantu ngomlilo, nangomsi, nangesulfure, ezaphumayo emlonyeni wawo.
19 Kuba amagunya awo asemlonyeni wawo nasemisileni yawo; kuba imisila yawo ifana neenyoka, ineentloko; ngayo ayonakalisa.
20 Amasalela abantu, abangabulawanga ngazo ezo zibetho, akaguqukanga emisebenzini yezandla zawo, ukuze angaqubudi kuzo iidemon, nezithixo zegolide, nezesilivere, nezobhedu, nezamatye, nezemithi, ezingenako nokubona, nokuva, nokuhamba;
21 akaguqukanga nasekubulaleni kwawo, nasekukhafuleni kwawo, nasembulweni wawo, nasebuseleni bawo.




Isahluko 10

1 Ndabona esinye isithunywa sezulu esinamandla, sisihla ezulwini, sithiwe wambu ngelifu; kukho umnyama entloko, ubuso baso bungathi lilanga, iinyawo zaso zingathi ziintsika zomlilo.
2 Esandleni saso saye sinencwadana ivulekile. Salumisa unyawo lwaso lokunene phezu kolwandle, ke olokhohlo phezu komhlaba;
3 sadanduluka ngezwi elikhulu, ngathi yingonyama igquma. Sathi sakudanduluka, iindudumo ezisixhenxe zazivakalisa izandi zazo.
4 Xa iindudumo ezisixhenxe zazivakalisayo izandi zazo, ndandiza kubhala; ndaza ndeva izwi liphuma emazulwini, lisithi kum, Zitywine izinto ezizivakalisileyo iindudumo ezisixhenxe, ungazibhali zona.
5 Saza isithunywa sezulu, endasibonayo simi phezu kolwandle na phezu komhlaba, sasiphakamisela ezulwini isandla saso,
6 safunga lowo udla ubomi, ase emaphakadeni asemaphakadeni, owadala izulu nezinto ezikulo, nomhlaba nezinto ezikuwo, nolwandle nezinto ezikulo, ukuthi, Akuyi kuba sabakho xesha.
7 Ke ngemihla yezwi lesesixhenxe isithunywa sezulu, xa sukuba siza kuvuthela ixilongo, iya kuzaliseka imfihlakalo kaThixo, njengoko wazishumayelayo iindaba ezilungileyo kwabangabakhe abakhonzi, abaprofeti.
8 Lathi izwi endalivayo liphuma emazulwini, labuya lathetha nam, lisithi, Hamba uye uyithabathe incwadana evulekileyo, esesandleni sesithunywa esimiyo phezu kolwandle naphezu komhlaba.
9 Ndesuka ke ndaya kwisithunywa eso, ndathi kuso, Ndinike incwadana leyo. Sathi kum, Yithabathe, uyidle uyigqibe; yosenza sibe krakra isisu sakho, kodwa emlonyeni wakho yoba nencasa enjengeyobusi.
10 Ndayithabatha ke incwadana esesandleni sesithunywa eso, ndayidla ndayigqiba; yaye emlonyeni wam inencasa enjengeyobusi; xa ndayidlayo, saba krakra isisu sam.
11 Sathi kum, Umele ukuba ubuye uprofete ngabantu, neentlanga, neelwimi, nookumkani, abaninzi.

1 Ndaza ndanikwa ingcongolo, ifana nentonga; saye isithunywa eso simi, sisithi, Suka uyilinganise itempile kaThixo, nesibingelelo, nabo banqulayo bekuyo.
2 Intendelezo engaphandle kwetempile yiphose phandle, ungayilinganisi yona; ngokuba inikwe iintlanga; umzi ongcwele ziya kuwunyathelela phantsi iinyanga ezimashumi mane anambini.
3 Ndiya kuwanika amangqina am amabini, aprofete imihla eliwaka elinamakhulu mabini anamanci mathandathu, ethiwe wambu ngeengubo ezirhwexayo.
4 Lawo yile minquma mibini, nezi ziphatho zezibane zibini, zimiyo phambi koThixo womhlaba.
5 Ukuba kukho bani unga angawonakalisa, kophuma umlilo emlonyeni wawo, uzidle uzigqibe iintshaba zawo; nokuba kukho bani unga angawonakalisa, umelwe kukubulawa ngokunjalo.
6 Wona la anegunya lokulivala izulu, ukuze kungani mvula ngemihla yokuprofeta kwawo. Kananjalo anegunya phezu kwamanzi ukuwaguqula abe ligazi, nokuwubetha umhlaba ngezibetho zonke, ngamaxa onke asukuba ethanda ngawo.
7 Xa athe abufeza ubungqina bawo, irhamncwa elinyuka liphuma enzonzobileni liya kwenza imfazwe nawo, liweyise, liwabulale.
8 Izidumbu zawo ziya kuba sesitratweni somzi omkhulu, okuthiwa ngokomoya yiSodom neYiputa, apho kananjalo yabethelelwa khona emnqamlezweni iNkosi yawo.
9 Abakubo abantu, nezizwe, neelwimi, neentlanga, baya kuzibona izidumbu zawo imihla emithathu enesiqingatha somhla, bangavumi ukuba izidumbu zawo zibekwe emangcwabeni.
10 Abo bemiyo phezu komhlaba baya kuwavuyelela, babe nemihlali; bathumelane izipho; ngokuba abo baprofeti babini babathuthumbisa abo bemiyo phezu komhlaba.
11 Emva kwemihla leyo mithathu inesiqingatha somhla, umoya wobomi ophume kuThixo wangena kuwo, ema ngeenyawo zawo; baza bawelwa luloyiko olukhulu abo bawabonayo.
12 Eva izwi elikhulu liphuma ezulwini, lisithi kuwo, Nyukelani apha! Enyuka, aya ezulwini esefini; zawabona iintshaba zawo.
13 Ngelo lixa kwabakho unyikimo lomhlaba olukhulu, isahlulo seshumi somzi sawa, kwabulawa kolo lunyikimo abantu abangamawaka asixhenxe; abo baseleyo bangenelwa luloyiko, bamzukisa uThixo wezulu.
14 Uyeha wesibini udlule; yabona uyeha wesithathu uyeza kamsinya.
15 Sathi esesixhenxe isithunywa savuthela ixilongo; kwabakho amazwi amakhulu emazulwini, esithi: Izikumkani zehlabathi zithe zaba zezeNkosi yethu nezikaKristu wayo. Wayeya kuba nguKumkani kuse emaphakadeni asemaphakadeni.
16 Aza amadoda amakhulu, angamashumi mabini anamane, ahleli phambi koThixo phezu kweetrone zawo, awa ngobuso bawo, aqubuda kuye uThixo,
17 esithi: Siyabulela kuwe, Nkosi, Thixo, Somandla, Wena ukhoyo, wawukho, uzayo, Kuba uwathabathile amandla akho amakhulu, waba nguKumkani.
18 Iintlanga zaqumba, Yeza ingqumbo yakho, Leza nexesha labo bafileyo ukuba bagwetywe, Nelokubanika umvuzo wabo abakhonzi bakho abaprofeti, nabo bangcwele, Nabo baloyikayo igama lakho, abancinane nabakhulu, Nelokonakalisa abo bawonakalisayo umhlaba.
19 Yavulwa itempile kaThixo emazulwini, yabonakala ityeya yomnqophiso wakhe etempileni yakhe; kwabakho imibane, nezandi, neendudumo, nonyikimo lomhlaba, nesichotho esikhulu.

4 Umsila wayo wawurhola isahlulo sesithathu seenkwenkwezi zezulu, waziphosa emhlabeni. Yathi inamba leyo yema phambi komfazi owayeza kuzala, ukuze, xa athe wazala, imdle imgqibe umntwana wakhe.
5 Wazala umntwana oyinkwenkwe, oza kuzalusa zonke iintlanga ngentonga yentsimbi; umntwana wakhe lowo wathiwa xwi, wasiwa kuye uThixo, nakuyo itrone yakhe.
6 Wathi umfazi wasabela entlango, apho ikhona indawo ayilungiselwe nguThixo, ukuze bamnqake khona imihla eliwaka elinamakhulu mabini anamanci mathandathu.
7 Kwaza kwabakho imfazwe emazulwini, uMikayeli nezithunywa zakhe besilwa nenamba, inamba nezithunywa zayo zisilwa;
8 azaba nakweyisa, kanjalo ayaba safunyanwa indawo yazo emazulwini.
9 Yaphoswa phantsi inamba enkulu, inyoka yakudala, leyo kuthiwa nguMtyholi, uSathana ke, lowo ulilahlekisayo elimiweyo liphela; yaphoswa emhlabeni, nezithunywa zayo zaphoswa kunye nayo.
10 Ndaza ndeva izwi elikhulu emazulwini lisithi, Ngoku luthe usindiso, namandla, nobukumkani, lwaba lolukaThixo wethu, negunya laba lelikaKristu wakhe; ngokuba ukhahlelwe phantsi ummangaleli wabazalwana bethu, lowo ubamangalelayo emehlweni kaThixo wethu imini nobusuku.
11 Bameyisile bona ngenxa yegazi leMvana, nangenxa yelizwi lobungqina babo; abawuthandanga umphefumlo wabo, kwada kwasekufeni.
12 Ngenxa yoko yibani nemihlali, nina mazulu, nani ninomnquba kuwo. Yeha, abo bawumiyo umhlaba nolwandle! ngokuba uhlile weza kuni uMtyholi, enomsindo omkhulu, esazi nje ukuba ixesha analo lincinane.
13 Yaza yathi inamba, yakubona ukuba iphoswe emhlabeni, yamtshutshisa umfazi ozele umntwana oyinkwenkwe.
14 Umfazi wanikwa amaphiko amabini okhozi olukhulu, ukuze aphaphazele aye entlango, endaweni yakhe, apho anqakwa khona ixesha, namaxesha, nesiqingatha sexesha, kude nobuso benyoka.
15 Inyoka yakhupha emva komfazi ngomlomo wayo amanzi anjengomlambo, ukuze imkhukulise nomlambo.
16 Umhlaba wamsiza umfazi, wathi umhlaba wawuvula umlomo wawo, wawufinca umlambo eyawukhuphayo inamba ngomlomo wayo.
17 Yamqumbela umfazi inamba, yemka yaya kulwa nabaseleyo bembewu yakhe, abo bayigcinayo imithetho kaThixo, abanobungqina bukaYesu Kristu.

3 Ndabona enye yazo iintloko zalo, ingathi ixatyelwe yafa; inxeba lalo elibanga ukufa laphiliswa. Wamangaliswa umhlaba uphela, walilandela irhamncwa elo.
4 Bayinqula inamba eyalinika igunya irhamncwa, balinqula irhamncwa, besithi, Ngubani na ofana nerhamncwa elo? ngubani na onako ukulwa nalo?

7 Lanikwa igunya lokulwa nabangcwele, libeyise; lanikwa igunya kuzo zonke izizwe, neelwimi, neentlanga.
8 Baya kulinqula bonke abo bemiyo phezu komhlaba, abamagama angabhalwanga encwadini yobomi yayo iMvana, exheliweyo kususela ekusekweni kwehlabathi.
9 Ukuba ubani unendlebe, makeve.

11 Ndabona elinye irhamncwa linyuka liphuma emhlabeni; laye lineempondo ezimbini zifana nezemvana, laye lithetha njengenamba.
12 Lenza lonke igunya lelokuqala irhamncwa, elalingaphambi kwalo; lenza umhlaba, nabo bawumiyo, ukuba balinqule irhamncwa lokuqala, elaphiliswayo inxeba lalo elibanga ukufa.
13 Lenza imiqondiso emikhulu, ukuze lihlise nomlilo ezulwini, uze emhlabeni phambi kwabantu,

15 Lanikwa igunya lokuwunika umfanekiselo werhamncwa umoya, ukuze umfanekiselo werhamncwa elo uthethe nokuthetha, wenze ukuba babulawe abasukuba bengaqubudi kuwo umfanekiselo werhamncwa.

16 Lowo uhleli efini waliphosa irhengqa lakhe emhlabeni; wavunwa ke umhlaba.
17 Kwaza kwaphuma esinye isithunywa sezulu etempileni esemazulwini, naso sikwanerhengqa elibukhali.

19 Isithunywa saliphosa irhengqa laso emhlabeni, sawubutha umdiliya womhlaba, sawuphosa esixovulelweni esikhulu somsindo kaThixo.
20 Isixovulelo eso sanyathelwa ngaphandle komzi lowo; kwaphuma igazi esixovulelweni eso, lada lafika emikhaleni yamahashe, umgama wezitadiya eziliwaka elinamakhulu amathandathu.

13 Ndabona kuphuma emlonyeni wenamba, nasemlonyeni werhamncwa, nasemlonyeni womprofeti wobuxoki, oomoya abathathu abangcolileyo, befana namasele.
14 Kuba bangoomoya beedemon, besenza imiqondiso; abaphuma baye kubo ookumkani bomhlaba, nabelimiweyo liphela, ukubahlanganisela emfazweni yaloo mini inkulu kaThixo, uSomandla.

1 Saza seza esinye sazo izithunywa zezulu zosixhenxe, ezineengqayi zosixhenxe, sathetha nam, sisithi kum, Yiza apha, ndikubonise ukugwetywa kwalo ihenyukazi elikhulu, elihleli phezu kwawo amanzi amaninzi;
2 abahenyuze nalo ookumkani bomhlaba, abo bawumiyo umhlaba, banxiliswa yiwayini yobuhenyu balo.
3 Sandisa entlango ndikuMoya; ndabona inkazana ihleli phezu kwerhamncwa elimfusa, lizele ngamagama onyeliso, lineentloko ezisixhenxe neempondo ezilishumi.
4 Yaye inkazana leyo ithiwe wambu ngengubo ebomvu nemfusa, ihonjiswe ngegolide, nelitye elinqabileyo, neeperile, inendebe yegolide esandleni sayo, izele ngamasikizi nezingcoliso zobuhenyu bayo.
5 Ebunzi kubhalwe igama elithi, imfihlelo, iBhabheli enkulu, unina wamahenyukazi nowamasikizi omhlaba.
6 Ndayibona inkazana leyo inxila ligazi labangcwele, naligazi lamangqina kaYesu. Ndamangaliswa ngokumangaliswa okukhulu ndakuyibona.
7 Sathi kum isithunywa sezulu, Umangaliswe yini na? Ndokuxelela mna imfihlelo yenkazana le, neyerhamncwa eli liyithweleyo, lineentloko ezisixhenxe neempondo ezilishumi.
8 Irhamncwa owalibonayo laye likho, alikho; liza kunyuka liphume enzonzobileni, limke liye entshabalalweni. Baya kumangaliswa abo bemiyo phezu komhlaba, abamagama angabhaliweyo encwadini yobomi kuseloko kwaba sekusekweni kwehlabathi, belibona nje irhamncwa elaye likho, elingekhoyo, likho noko.
9 Nantsi ingqiqo enobulumko. Iintloko ezisixhenxe ezi ziintaba ezisixhenxe, ehleli phezu kwazo inkazana leyo.
10 Kananjalo zona zingookumkani abasixhenxe. Abahlanu bawa, omnye ukho, omnye akakafiki; xa athe wafika, umelwe kukuhlala umzuzwana.
11 Irhamncwa elaye likho, elingekhoyo, lona lingowesibhozo okwangowabasixhenxe; umka aye entshabalalweni.
12 Iimpondo ezilishumi owazibonayo zingookumkani abalishumi, bona abo bangekamkeli bukumkani, basuka bamkele, njengookumkani, igunya lelixa elinye kunye nerhamncwa.
13 Aba banasicamango sinye, babeya kunikela amandla negunya labo kulo irhamncwa.
14 Aba baya kwenza imfazwe neMvana. IMvana iya kubeyisa, ngokuba inguNkosi kankosi, inguKumkani kakumkani; baya kweyisa nabo banayo, babiziweyo, banyuliweyo, bathembekileyo.
15 Sithi kum, Amanzi owawabonayo, apho lihleli khona ihenyukazi, ngabantu, nezihlwele, neentlanga, neelwimi;

17 Kuba uThixo ubeke ezintliziyweni zabo ukwenza ingcinga yakhe, benze ngcinga-nye, babunike irhamncwa ubukumkani babo, ade azaliseke amazwi kaThixo.
18 Inkazana owayibonayo nguloo mzi mkhulu, ulawula ookumkani bomhlaba.

1 Ndaza emva koko ndabona isithunywa sezulu sisihla, siphuma ezulwini, sinegunya elikhulu; umhlaba wakhanyiselwa bubuqaqawuli baso.
2 Sadanduluka ngamandla, ngezwi elikhulu, sisithi: Iwile, iwile iBhabheli enkulu, Yaba likhaya leedemon, nentolongo yoomoya bonke abangcolileyo, Nentolongo yeentaka zonke ezingcolileyo, ezithiyekileyo.
3 Ngokuba zonke iintlanga zisele kuyo iwayini yomsindo wobuhenyu bayo, Nookumkani bomhlaba bahenyuza nayo, Nabarhwebi bomhlaba baba zizityebi, ngamandla okuxhamla kwabo iziyolo zayo.
4 Ndeva elinye izwi liphuma emazulwini lisithi: Phumani kuyo, bantu bam, Ukuze ningadlelani nayo ngezono zayo, Nokuze ningamkeliswa kwizibetho zayo.
5 Ngokuba izono zayo ziye zafikelela emazulwini, Nezinto zayo zokungalungisi uzikhumbule uThixo.
6 Yibuyekezeni, njengoko nayo yanibuyekezayo, Niyiphinde impinda ngokwemisebenzi yayo; Indebe eyaniphithikezela yona, yiphithikezeleni impinda nani.
7 Yinikeni intuthumbo nesijwili, ngangoko yazizukisayo, yaxhamla iziyolo. Ngokuba ithi entliziyweni yayo, Ndihleli ndingukumkanikazi, Andimhlolokazi, andisayi kubona sijwili.
8 Ngenxa yoko ziya kufika ngamini-nye izibetho zayo, Ukufa, nesijwili, nendlala. Iya kutsha ngumlilo, Ngokuba ligorha iNkosi uThixo, lowo uyigwebayo.
9 Ookumkani bomhlaba, abo bahenyuza nayo, baxhamla iziyolo nayo, baya kuyililela, Bayimbambazelele, bakuwubona umsi wokutsha kwayo;

13 Nesinamon, neziqhumiso, namafutha aqholiweyo, nentlaka emhlophe, Newayini, neoli, nomgubo ocoliweyo, nengqolowa, Namaqegu, nezimvu, namahashe, neenqwelo, Nemizimba nemiphefumlo yabantu.
14 Neziqhamo ezikhanukwa ngumphefumlo wakho zimkile kuwe, Nazo zonke izinto ezityebileyo neziqaqambileyo zimkile kuwe; Akusayi kuba sazifumana zona.
15 Abarhwebi bezo zinto, abo batyeba ngayo, Baya kuma kude, ngenxa yokoyika intuthumbo yayo,
16 Belila, besenza isijwili, besithi, Yeha, yeha, mzi mkhulu Owawuthiwe wambu ngelinen ecikizekileyo, nengubo ebomvu, nengubo emfusa, Uhonjiswe ngegolide, namatye anqabileyo, neeperile! Ngokuba buphanziswe ngalixa linye ubutyebi obungaka.
17 Bonke abaqhubi-mikhombe, nayo yonke indibandiba esezinqanaweni, Noomateloshe, nabo bonke abasebenza elwandle,
18 Bema kude, bamana bedanduluka, bakuwubona umsi wokutsha kwayo, Besithi, Nguwuphi na ofana nalo mzi mkhulu?
19 Bagalela uthuli entloko, Bamana bedanduluka, belila, besenza isijwili, Besithi, Yeha, yeha, mzimkhulu, Apho baba nobutyebi khona bonke aba baneenqanawa elwandle, ngeento ezinqabileyo zawo! Ngokuba ngalixa linye uphanzisiwe.
20 Wenzele imihlali, nina mazulu, Nani bapostile bangcwele, nani baprofeti; Ngokuba uThixo eniphindezelele kuwo.
21 Saza isithunywa esithile esinamandla safunqula ilitye, langa lilitye lokusila, ukuba likhulu kwalo; saliphosa elwandle, sisithi: Iya kwenjiwa nje ke ukugadlelwa kwayo iBhabheli, umzi omkhulu, ingabi saba safunyanwa.
22 Isandi sababethi beehadi, neseemvumi, nesabagwali, nesabavutheli-maxilongo, asisayi kuba saviwa kuwe; Neengcibi zonke zobungcibi bonke azisayi kuba safunyanwa kuwe; Nesandi selitye lokusila asisayi kuba saviwa kuwe;
23 Nokukhanya kwesibane akusayi kuba sakhanya kuwe; Nezwi lomyeni nelomtshakazi alisayi kuba saviwa kuwe; Ngokuba abarhwebi bakho bebengamanene omhlaba; Ngokuba zonke iintlanga zalahlekiswa kukukhafula kwakho.
24 Kuwo kwafunyanwa igazi labaprofeti, nelabangcwele, Nelabo bonke abasikiweyo emhlabeni.

13 Yena wayethiwe wambu ngengubo ethiwe nkxu egazini; igama lakhe kuthiwa nguLizwi likaThixo.
14 Yaye imikhosi esemazulwini imlandela, ikumahashe amhlophe, bambethe ilinen ecikizekileyo, eqaqambileyo, emhlophe.
15 Emlonyeni wakhe kuphuma ikrele elibukhali, ukuze azithi qwaka ngalo iintlanga. Yena uya kuzalusa ngentonga yentsimbi; yena unyathela isixovulelo sewayini yomsindo neyengqumbo kaThixo uSomandla.

1 Ndabona isithunywa sezulu, sisihla siphuma emazulwini, sinesitshixo senzonzobila, nomxokelelwane omkhulu esandleni saso.
2 Sayibamba inamba, loo nyoka yakudala enguMtyholi, uSathana ke, sayikhonkxa iminyaka eliwaka.
3 Sayiphosa enzonzobileni, sayivalela, satywina ngaphezu kwayo, ukuze ingabi sazilahlekisa iintlanga, ide izaliseke iminyaka eliwaka; emva koko imelwe kukukhululwa ixeshana elincinane.
4 Ndabona iitrone, nabahleli phezu kwazo, banikwa ugwebo. Ndayibona imiphefumlo yababenqunyulwe iintloko ngezembe, ngenxa yobungqina bukaYesu, nangenxa yelizwi likaThixo, abasukuba bengalinqulanga irhamncwa nomfanekiselo walo, abangalwamkelanga uphawu lwalo ebunzini nasesandleni sabo; badla ubomi, baba ngookumkani kunye noKristu iminyaka eliwaka.
5 Ke abafileyo abaseleyo ababuyanga badle bomi, yada yazaliseka iminyaka eliwaka. Olo luvuko lokuqala.
6 Unoyolo, ungcwele, lowo unesabelo eluvukweni lokuqala; ukufa kwesibini akunagunya kubo abanjalo; baya kusuka babe ngababingeleli bakaThixo nabakaKristu, babe ngookumkani kunye naye iminyaka eliwaka.
7 Xa ithe yazaliseka iminyaka eliwaka, uSathana wokhululwa entolongweni yakhe;
8 aphume, aye kuzilahlekisa iintlanga ezisezimbombeni ezine zehlabathi, uGogi noMagogi, ukubahlanganisela emfazweni, abanani labo lingangentlabathi yaselwandle.

1 Ndabona izulu elitsha, nomhlaba omtsha; kuba elokuqala izulu nowokuqala umhlaba udlule, nolwandle alusekho.
2 Ndaza mna, Yohane, ndawubona umzi ongcwele, iYerusalem entsha, usihla uvela kuThixo, uphuma emazulwini, ulungisiwe njengomtshakazi ehonjiselwe indoda yakhe.
3 Ndeva izwi elikhulu liphuma emazulwini, lisithi: Yabona, umnquba lo kaThixo unabantu; Uya kuhlala nabo emnqubeni, Bona babe ngabantu bakhe, Yena uThixo abe nabo, enguThixo wabo;
4 Azisule uThixo zonke iinyembezi emehlweni abo, Kungabi sabakho kufa, Kungabi sabakho nasijwili, nakukhala, nantlungu; Ngokuba izinto zokuqala zigqithile.
5 Waza lowo uhleli phezu kwetrone wathi, Uyabona, izinto zonke ndizenza ntsha. Athi kum, Bhala; ngokuba lawo ngamazwi ayinyaniso, athembekileyo.
6 Wathi kum, Kwenzekile; mna ndinguAlfa no-Omega, isiqalo nesiphelo; mna ndomnika lowo unxaniweyo emthonjeni wamanzi obomi, ngesisa.
7 Lowo weyisayo uya kuzidla ilifa izinto zonke; ndiya kuba nguThixo wakhe, yena abe ngunyana wam.
8 Ke wona amagwala, nabangakholwayo, nabangamasikizi, nababulali, nabenzi bombulo, nabakhafuli, nabakhonzi bezithixo, nawo onke amaxoki, isabelo sawo siya kuba sedikeni elivutha umlilo nesulfure. Oko kukufa kwesibini.
9 Kwaza kweza kum esinye sezithunywa zezulu ezisixhenxe, ezineengqayi ezisixhenxe, ezizele zizibetho zosixhenxe zokugqibela, sathetha nam sisithi, Yiza apha, ndikubonise umtshakazi, umfazi wayo iMvana.
10 Sandisa ndikuMoya entabeni enkulu, ephakamileyo, sandibonisa umzi omkhulu, iYerusalem engcwele, usihla uphuma emazulwini, uvela kuThixo,

12 Kananjalo unodonga olukhulu oluphakamileyo. Unamasango alishumi elinamabini, phezu kwamasango unezithunywa zezulu ezilishumi elinazibini; kubhalwe kuwo amagama angawezizwe ezilishumi elinazibini zoonyana bakaSirayeli;
13 ngasempumalanga ingamasango mathathu, ngasentla ingamasango mathathu, ngasezantsi ingamasango mathathu, ngasentshonalanga ingamasango mathathu.
14 Udonga lomzi lunamatye eziseko alishumi elinamabini, kuwo ingamagama abapostile abalishumi elinababini bayo iMvana.
15 Lowo ubethetha nam wayenengcongolo yegolide, ukuba awulinganise umzi lowo, namasango awo, nodonga lwawo.
16 Umzi lowo umbombo-ne ukuma kwawo; ubude bawo bungangobubanzi bawo. Wawulinganisa umzi lowo ngengcongolo, wazitadiya ezilishumi linazibini lamawaka; ubude nobubanzi nokuphakama kwawo kuyalingana.
17 Walulinganisa nodonga lwawo, ikhulu elinamanci mane anesine leekubhite, ngokomlinganiso womntu, oko kukuthi, wesithunywa sezulu.
18 Isakhiwo sodonga lwawo yiyaspisi; Umzi yigolide engcwengekileyo, efana negilasi ebonakalelayo,
19 Namatye eziseko zodonga lomzi ayevathiswe ngamatye onke anqabileyo. Elokuqala ilitye lesiseko yiyaspisi, elesibini yisafire, elesithathu yikalikedo, elesine yismarado,
20 elesihlanu yisardonisi, elesithandathu yisardiyo, elesixhenxe yikrizolite, elesibhozo yibherilo, elesithoba yitopazi, eleshumi yikrizoprazi, eleshumi elinalinye yihakinto, eleshumi elinambini yiametiste.
21 Namasango lawo alishumi elinamabini aziiperile ezilishumi elinambini, lalelo isango ngalinye lenziwe ngaperile-nye; nesitrato somzi yigolide engcwengekileyo, njengegilasi ebonakalelayo.
22 Andibonanga tempile kuwo, kuba iNkosi uThixo uSomandla nayo iMvana yitempile yawo.
23 Umzi lowo awufuni langa, kwanayo inyanga, kuba ubuqaqawuli bukaThixo buwukhanyisela, nayo iMvana isisibane sawo.
24 Iintlanga zabo basindiswayo ziya kuhamba ekukhanyeni kwawo; ookumkani bomhlaba bazise kuwo uzuko nembeko yabo.
25 Amasango awo akasayi kuvalwa mini (kuba ubusuku abuyi kubakho khona).
26 Baya kuzisa uzuko nembeko yeentlanga ezo kuwo.
27 Akusayi kungena kuwo nanye into eyenza inqambi, eyenza isikizi, nobuxoki; abaya kungena ngabo bodwa babhalwe encwadini yobomi yeMvana.

11 Lowo ungalungisiyo, makaselehlala engalungisi; lowo uyinyhukunyhuku, makaselehlala eyinyhukunyhuku; nolilungisa makaselehlala elungisa; nongcwele makaselehlala ezingcwalisile.
12 Yabona, ndiyeza kamsinya; umvuzo wam unam, ukuba ndivuze elowo njengoko umsebenzi wakhe uya kuba njalo.
13 Mna ndinguAlfa no-Omega, isiqalo nesiphelo, owokuqala nowokugqibela.

15 Ngaphandle ke zizinja, nabakhafuli, nabenzi bombulo, nababulali, nabakhonzi bezithixo, nabo bonke ababuthandayo, ababenzayo ubuxoki.
16 Mna, Yesu, ndasithuma isithunywa sam sasemazulwini, ukuba ndizingqine kuni ezi zinto ngawo amabandla. Mna ndiyingcambu nenzala kaDavide, ikhwezi eliqaqambileyo lokusa.
17 UMoya nomtshakazi bathi, Yiza. Lowo uvayo makathi, Yiza. Lowo unxaniweyo makeze; lowo uthandayo, makawathabathe amanzi obomi ngesisa.
18 Kuba ndiyangqina kubantu bonke abawevayo amazwi esiprofeto sale ncwadi, ukuba, Xa athe umntu wongeza kwezo zinto, uThixo uya kongeza kuye izibetho ezibhaliweyo kule ncwadi;
19 ukuba ke uthe umntu wasusa kuwo amazwi encwadi yesi siprofeto, uThixo uya kusisusa isabelo sakhe encwadini yobomi, nakuwo umzi ongcwele, nakuzo izinto ezibhaliweyo kule ncwadi.
20 Uthi lowo uzingqinayo ezi zinto, Ewe, ndiyeza kamsinya. Amen. Ewe, yiza, Nkosi Yesu.
21 Ubabalo lweNkosi yethu uYesu Kristu malube nani nonke. Amen.
