13 Wayesethi uHagayi: “Uma ongcolile ngesidumbu ethinta noma yikuphi kulokhu, kuyakungcola na?” Abapristi baphendula bathi: “Kuyakungcola.”
14 Wayesethatha uHagayi, wathi: “ ‘Banjalo laba bantu, sinjalo lesi sizwe ngaphambi kwami,’ usho uJehova; ‘injalo futhi yonke imisebenzi yezandla zabo; nalokhu abakusondeza khona kungcolile.
15 “ ‘Ake nibeke ezinhliziyweni zenu manje, kusukela kulolu suku nangaphambili, ukuthi kungakabekwa itshe phezu kwetshe ethempelini likaJehova,
16 kusukela kulezo, lapho kwayiwa enqwabeni yezilinganiso ezingamashumi amabili, kwakuyishumi nje, nalapho kwayiwa ezikhamweni zewayini ukukha izitsha ezingamashumi ayisihlanu, kwakungamashumi amabili nje.
17 Nganishaya ngokuhamuka, nangesikhutha, nangesichotho kuyo yonke imisebenzi yezandla zenu, kepha nokho anibuyelanga kimi,’ usho uJehova.
18 ‘Ake nikubeke ezinhliziyweni zenu, kusukela kulolu suku nangaphambili, kwasosukwini lwamashumi amabili nane lwenyanga yesishiyagalolunye, kwasosukwini okwabekwa ngalo isisekelo sethempeli likaJehova, yebo, nikubeke ezinhliziyweni zenu.
19 Imbewu isesibuyeni na? Qha, imivini, nemikhiwane, namapomegranati, neminqumo akuthelanga; kepha kusukela kulolu suku ngiyakukubusisa.’ ”

22 ngigumbuqele isihlalo sobukhosi semibuso, ngichithe amandla emibuso yabezizwe, ngigumbuqele izinqola nabakhwela kuzo; namahhashi ayakuwa nezinkweli zawo, kube yileyo naleyo ngenkemba yomfowabo.
