56 Uma umpristi ebheka, ibala selifiphele lihlanziwe, bheka, makalintwengule engutsheni noma esikhumbeni noma ezintanjeni eziqondileyo noma kwezinqamulayo;
57 uma lisabonakala engutsheni noma ezintanjeni eziqondileyo noma kwezinqamulayo noma entweni yesikhumba, wokushisa ngomlilo lokho isifo esikukho.

Isahluko 27

1 UJehova wakhuluma kuMose, wathi:
2 “Yisho kubantwana bakwa-Israyeli, uthi kubo: ‘Nxa umuntu enza isithembiso esithile, lapho uyakulinganisa abantu kuJehova,
3 ukulinganisa kwakho owesilisa, kusukela koneminyaka engamashumi amabili kuze kube koneminyaka engamashumi ayisithupha, kuyakuba ngamashekeli angamashumi ayisihlanu esiliva ngokweshekeli lendlu engcwele.
4 Uma kungowesifazane, ukulinganisa kwakho kuyakuba ngamashekeli angamashumi amathathu.
5 Uma kusukela koneminyaka eyisihlanu kuze kube koneminyaka engamashumi amabili, ukulinganisa kwakho owesilisa kuyakuba ngamashekeli angamashumi amabili, nowesifazane amashekeli ayishumi.
6 Uma kusukela konenyanga kuze kube koneminyaka eyisihlanu, ukulinganisa kwakho owesilisa kuyakuba ngamashekeli ayisihlanu esiliva, nokulinganisa kwakho owesifazane kuyakuba ngamashekeli amathathu esiliva.
7 Uma kusukela koneminyaka engamashuni ayisithupha kuya phezulu, nalapho kungowesilisa, ukulinganisa kwakho kuyakuba ngamashekeli ayishumi nanhlanu, nowesifazane kube ngamashekeli ayishumi.
8 Kepha uma empofu kunokulinganisa kwakho, uyakubekwa phambi kompristi, umpristi amlinganise; umpristi uyakumlinganisa ngokwamandla akhe owathembisayo.
9 “ ‘Uma kuyizilwane okunganikelwa ngazo kuJehova, zonke ezinjalo umuntu anikela ngazo kuJehova ziyakuba ngcwele.
10 Akayikuziphambanisa, angazenani ngezinye, esihle ngesibi nesibi ngesihle; uma enana nokwenana isilwane ngesilwane, sona leso kanye naso okwenanwa ngaso ziyakuba ngcwele.
11 Uma kuyisilwane esingcolileyo okunganikelwa ngaso kuJehova, uyakusibeka isilwane phambi kompristi,
12 umpristi asilinganise, noma sihle noma sibi; njengalokho wena mpristi ulinganisa, kuyakuba njalo.
13 Kepha uma ethanda ngempela ukusihlenga, uyakuthasisela okwesihlanu kwaso kukho ukulinganisa kwakho.
14 “ ‘Nxa umuntu eyakungcwelisa indlu yakhe ibe ngcwele kuJehova, umpristi uyakuyilinganisa uma inhle noma imbi; njengalokhu umpristi eyilinganisa, kuyakuba njalo.
15 Uma oyingcwelisayo ethanda ukuyihlenga indlu yakhe, uyakuthasisela okwesihlanu kwemali yokulinganisa kwakho, ibe ngeyakhe.
16 “ ‘Uma umuntu eyakumngcwelisela uJehova inxenye yensimu yefa lakhe, ukulinganisa kwakho kuyakuba njengokuhlwanyelwa kwayo, ukuhlwanyelwa kwehomere lebhali kube ngamashekeli angamashumi ayisihlanu esiliva.
17 Uma engcwelisa insimu yakhe kusukela emnyakeni wejubili, iyakuma ngokulinganisa kwakho.
18 Kepha uma ungcwelisa insimu emva kwejubili, umpristi uyakumbalela imali ngeminyaka eseleyo kuze kufike umnyaka wejubili, kuncishiswe ukulinganisa kwakho.
19 Uma ongcwelisa insimu ethanda ngempela ukuyihlenga, uyakuthasisela kuyo okwesihlanu kwemali yokulinganisa kwakho, iqiniswe kuye.
20 Uma engahlengi insimu, noma ethengisile ngensimu komunye umuntu, ayisayikuhlengwa.
21 Kepha insimu ekuphumeni kwayo ngejubili iyakuba ngcwele kuJehova njengensimu eyahlukaniswayo; iyakuba yifa lompristi.
22 “ ‘Uma engcwelisela uJehova insimu ayithengileyo, engesiyo insimu yefa lakhe,
23 umpristi uyakumbalela imali yokulinganisa kwakho kuze kufike umnyaka wejubili, anike ukulinganisa kwakho ngalolo suku kube yinto engcwele kuJehova.
24 Ngomnyaka wejubili insimu iyakubuyela kuye eyathengwa kuye, yebo, kuye olifa lensimu lingelakhe.
25 Konke ukulinganisa kwakho kuyakuba ngokweshekeli lendlu engcwele; amagera angamashumi amabili ayakuba yishekeli.
26 “ ‘Kepha izibulo lezilwane elenziwe libe yizibulo kuJehova aliyikungcweliswa muntu; noma liyinkabi noma liyimvu, lingelikaJehova.
27 Uma kungelesilwane esingcolileyo, uyakulihlenga ngokulinganisa kwakho, athasisele kukho okwesihlanu kwakho; uma lingahlengwa, kuyakuthengiswa ngalo ngokulinganisa kwakho.
28 “ ‘Nokho into yonke eyahlukaniswa, umuntu ayahlukanisela uJehova kukho konke anakho, noma abantu, noma izilwane, noma insimu yefa lakhe, akuyikuthengiswa ngayo, ingahlengwa; konke okwahlukanisiwe kungcwelengcwele kuJehova.
29 “ ‘Akukho muntu owaqalekiswayo, owaqalekiswa kubantu, ongahlengwa; wobulawa nokubulawa.
30 “ ‘Nokweshumi konke kwezwe, okwembewu yezwe noma okwezithelo zemithi, kungokukaJehova; kungcwele kuJehova.
31 Uma umuntu ethanda ukuhlenga okuthile okokweshumi kwakhe, uyakuthasisela kukho okwesihlanu kwakho.
32 Konke okweshumi kwezinkomo noma okwezimvu, zonke ezidlula phansi kwentonga, okweshumi kuyakuba ngcwele kuJehova.
33 Akayikuhlola, uma kuhle noma kubi, angakwenani ngokunye; kepha uma ngempela ekwenana ngokunye, lokhu nalokho akwenana ngakho kuyakuba ngcwele; akuyikuhlengwa.’ ”
34 Leyo iyimiyalo uJehova ayala ngayo uMose ngabantwana bakwa-Israyeli entabeni yaseSinayi.
