IGenesis 1

1:1 Ekuqalekeni uThixo wadala amazulu nehlabathi. 1:2 Ke ehlabathini kwakusenyanyeni, kuselubala; kwakumnyama phezu kwamanzi enzonzobila. UMoya kaThixo wafukama phezu kwamanzi lawo. 1:3 Wathi uThixo, Makubekho ukukhanya. Kwabakho ke ukukhanya. 1:4 Wakubona ke uThixo ukukhanya ukuba kulungile, wahlula uThixo phakathi kokukhanya nobumnyama. 1:5 Wathi uThixo ukukhanya yimini, wathi ubumnyama bubusuku. Kwahlwa, kwasa: yangumhla wokuqala. 1:6 Wathi uThixo, Makubekho isibhakabhaka phakathi kwawo amanzi, sibe ngumahlulo wokwahlula amanzi kumanzi. 1:7 Wasenza uThixo isibhakabhaka, wawahlula amanzi angaphantsi kwesibhakabhaka kuwo amanzi angaphezu kwesibhakabhaka. Kwaba njalo. 1:8 Wathi uThixo isibhakabhaka ngamazulu. Kwahlwa, kwasa: yangumhla wesibini. 1:9 Wathi uThixo, Amanzi angaphantsi kwamazulu makahlanganiselwe ndaweni-nye, kubonakale okomileyo. Kwaba njalo. 1:10 Wathi uThixo okomileyo ngumhlaba, wathi intlanganisela yamanzi ziilwandle. Wabona uThixo ukuba kulungile. 1:11 Wathi uThixo, Umhlaba mawuphume uhlaza, imifuno evelisa imbewu, imithi yeziqhamo, eyenza iziqhamo ngohlobo lwayo, embewu ikuyo, emhlabeni. Kwaba njalo. 1:12 Umhlaba waphuma uhlaza, nemifuno evelisa imbewu ngohlobo lwayo, nemithi eyenza iziqhamo, embewu ikuyo, ngohlobo lwayo. Wabona uThixo ukuba kulungile. 1:13 Kwahlwa kwasa: yangumhla wesithathu. 1:14 Wathi uThixo, Makubekho izikhanyiso esibhakabhakeni samazulu, zibe ngumahlulo wokwahlula imini kubusuku; zibe zezemiqondiso, zibe zezamaxesha amisiweyo, zibe zezemihla neminyaka; 1:15 mazibe zizikhanyiso esibhakabhakeni samazulu, zikhanyise ehlabathini. Kwaba njalo. 1:16 Wenza uThixo izikhanyiso ezikhulu zazibini, esona sikhulu isikhanyiso ukuba silawule imini, esona sincinane isikhanyiso ukuba silawule ubusuku; wenza neenkwenkwezi. 1:17 Wazibeka uThixo esibhakabhakeni samazulu, ukuba zikhanyise ehlabathini, zilawule imini nobusuku, 1:18 zahlule ukukhanya kubumnyama. Wabona uThixo ukuba kulungile. 1:19 Kwahlwa, kwasa: yangumhla wesine. 1:20 Wathi uThixo, Amanzi la makanyakazele inyakanyaka, imiphefumlo ephilileyo; zithi neentaka ziphaphazele ehlabathini, esibhakabhakeni sezulu. 1:21 Wadala uThixo oominenga mikhulu, nayo yonke imiphefumlo ephilileyo enambuzelayo, awanyakazela ngayo amanzi ngohlobo lwayo, neentaka zonke ezinamaphiko ngohlobo lwazo. Wabona uThixo ukuba kulungile. 1:22 Wazisikelela uThixo, esithi, Qhamani, nande, niwazalise amanzi aselwandle; zithi iintaka zande ehlabathini. 1:23 Kwahlwa, kwasa: yangumhla wesihlanu. 1:24 Wathi uThixo, Umhlaba mawuphume imiphefumlo ephilileyo ngohlobo lwayo: izinto ezizitho zine, nezinambuzane, nezinto eziphilileyo zomhlaba ngohlobo lwazo. Kwaba njalo. 1:25 Wenza uThixo izinto eziphilileyo zomhlaba ngohlobo lwazo, nezinto ezizitho zine ngohlobo lwazo, nazo zonke izinambuzane zomhlaba ngohlobo lwazo. Wabona uThixo ukuba kulungile. 1:26 Wathi uThixo, Masenze umntu ngokomfanekiselo wethu ngokufana nathi. Mababe nobukhosi ezintlanzini zolwandle, nasezintakeni zezulu, nasezintweni ezizitho zine, nasemhlabeni wonke, nasezinambuzaneni zonke ezinambuzela emhlabeni. 1:27 Wamdala ke uThixo umntu ngokomfanekiselo wakhe; wamdala ngokomfanekiselo kaThixo; wadala indoda nenkazana. 1:28 Wabasikelela uThixo, wathi kubo uThixo, Qhamani, nande, niwuzalise umhlaba niweyise; nibe nobukhosi ezintlanzini zolwandle, nasezintakeni zezulu, nasezintweni zonke eziphilileyo ezinambuzelayo emhlabeni. 1:29 Wathi uThixo, Yabonani, ndininikile yonke imifuno evelisa imbewu, esemhlabeni wonke, nayo yonke imithi eneziqhamo zemithi evelisa imbewu: yoba kukudla kuni. 1:30 Nezinto zonke eziphilileyo zomhlaba, neentaka zonke zezulu, nezinambuzane zonke ezisemhlabeni, ezinomphefumlo ophilileyo, ndizinike yonke imifuno eluhlaza ukuba ibe kukudla. Kwaba njalo. 1:31 Wakubona uThixo konke akwenzileyo, nanko, kulungile kunene. Kwahlwa, kwasa: yangumhla wesithandathu.

2:1 Agqitywa ke amazulu nehlabathi, nawo wonke umkhosi wezo zinto. 2:2 Wawugqiba ke uThixo ngomhla wesixhenxe umsebenzi wakhe awawenzayo; waphumla ngomhla wesixhenxe kuwo wonke umsebenzi wakhe awawenzayo. 2:3 Wawusikelela uThixo umhla wesixhenxe, wawungcwalisa; ngokuba waphumla ngawo kuwo wonke umsebenzi wakhe awawudalayo uThixo, wawenza. 2:4 Yiyo le ke inzala yamazulu nehlabathi ekudalweni kwezo zinto, mini wenza uYehova uThixo ihlabathi namazulu, 2:5 onke amatyholo asendle engekaveli emhlabeni, nayo yonke imifuno yasendle ingekantshuli; kuba uYehova uThixo ebengekanisi mvula emhlabeni; kwaye kungekho mntu wokuwusebenza umhlaba. 2:6 Kwaye kunyuka inkungu iphuma ehlabathini, yawunyakamisa wonke umhlaba. 2:7 UYehova uThixo wambumba umntu ngothuli lwasemhlabeni, waphefumlela emathatheni akhe impefumlo yobomi; umntu ke waba ngumphefumlo ophilileyo. 2:8 UYehova uThixo watyala umyezo e-Eden ngasempumalanga; wambeka khona umntu abembumbile. 2:9 UYehova uThixo wantshulisa emhlabeni yonke imithi enqwenelekayo ngokukhangeleka, nelungele ukudliwa; nomthi wobomi emyezweni phakathi, nomthi wokwazi okulungileyo nokubi. 2:10 Kwaphuma umlambo e-Eden wokuwunyakamisa umyezo; wahluka apho, waba ziimbaxa ezine. 2:11 Igama lowokuqala yiPishon; nguwo lowo ujikeleze lonke ilizwe laseHavila, apho ikhona igolide. 2:12 Igolide yelo lizwe intle, ikhona ibhedolaki nelitye lebherilo. 2:13 Igama lowesibini umlambo yiGihon; nguwo lowo ujikeleze lonke ilizwe lakwaKushi. 2:14 Igama lowesithathu umlambo yiHidekele; nguwo lowo uya phambi kwelakwa-Asiriya. Owesine umlambo ngumEfrati. 2:15 UYehova uThixo wamthabatha umntu, wambeka emyezweni we-Eden, ukuba awusebenze, awugcine. 2:16 UYehova uThixo wamwisela umthetho umntu, esithi, Yonke imithi yomyezo ungayidla uyidle; 2:17 ke wona umthi wokwazi okulungileyo nokubi uze ungawudli; kuba mhlana uthe wawudla, uya kufa. 2:18 Wathi uYehova uThixo, Akulungile ukuba umntu abe yedwa, ndiya kumenzela umncedi onguwabo. 2:19 UYehova uThixo wabumba ngomhlaba zonke izinto eziphilileyo zasendle, nazo zonke iintaka zezulu, wazisa kuye uAdam ukubona ukuba wothini na ukuzibiza, ukuze oko azibize ngako uAdam zonke izinto eziphilileyo, ibe ligama lazo elo. 2:20 Wazithiya amagama uAdam zonke izinto ezizitho zine, neentaka zasezulwini, nazo zonke izinto eziphilileyo zasendle; ke uAdam akafunyanelwanga mncedi unguwabo. 2:21 UYehova uThixo wawisa ubuthongo obukhulu phezu koAdam, walala. Wathabatha lwalunye ezimbanjeni zakhe, wavingca ngenyama esikhundleni salo. 2:22 UYehova uThixo walwakha ubambo abeluthabathe kuAdam, lwaba ngumfazi; wamzisa kuAdam. 2:23 Wathi uAdam, Eli ke ngoku lithambo lasemathanjeni am, yinyama yasenyameni yam; lo yena ukubizwa kothiwa ngumfazi, ngokuba ethatyathwe endodeni. 2:24 Ngenxa yoko indoda yomshiya uyise nonina, inamathele kumkayo, babe nyama-nye ke. 2:25 Baye bobabini behamba ze, umntu lowo nomkakhe, bengenazintloni.

IGenesis 3

3:1 Ke kaloku inyoka yaye inobuqhophololo ngaphezu kwazo zonke izinto eziphilileyo zasendle, abezenzile uYehova uThixo. Yathi kumfazi Utshilo na okunene uThixo ukuthi, Ze ningadli kuyo yonke imithi yomyezo? 3:2 Wathi umfazi kwinyoka, Eziqhameni zemithi yomyezo singadla; 3:3 ke eziqhameni zomthi osemyezweni phakathi, uthe uThixo, Ze ningadli kuzo; ze ningazichukumisi, hleze nife. 3:4 Yathi inyoka kumfazi, Anisayi kufa: 3:5 kuba esazi uThixo ukuba, mhlana nithe nadla kuzo, oqabuka amehlo enu, nibe njengoThixo, nazi okulungileyo nokubi. 3:6 Wabona umfazi ukuba umthi ulungele ukudliwa, nokuba uyakhanukeka emehlweni, ingumthi onqwenelekela ukuqiqisa, wathabatha eziqhameni zawo, wadla; wanika nendoda yakhe inaye, yadla. 3:7 Aqabuka amehlo abo bobabini, bazi ukuba bahamba ze; bathunga amagqabi omkhiwane, bazenzela imibhinqo. 3:8 Basiva isandi sikaYehova uThixo, ehamba emyezweni empepheni yasemini; basuka bazimela uAdam nomkakhe ebusweni bukaYehova uThixo, phakathi kwemithi yomyezo. 3:9 UYehova uThixo wambiza uAdam, wathi kuye, Uphi na? 3:10 Wathi yena, Ndive isandi sakho emyezweni, ndasuka ndoyika, ngokuba ndihamba ze; ndazimela. 3:11 Wathi, Uxelelwe ngubani na, ukuba uhamba ze? Udlile na kuwo umthi, endakuwisela umthetho ngawo, ndathi, Uze ungadli kuwo? 3:12 Wathi uAdam, Umfazi owandinikayo ukuba abe nam, nguye ondinikileyo kuwo umthi, ndadla ke. 3:13 Wathi uYehova uThixo kumfazi, Yintoni na le nto uyenzileyo? Wathi umfazi, Inyoka indilukuhlile, ndadla ke. 3:14 Wathi uYehova uThixo kwinyoka, Ngokuba uyenzile le nto, uqalekisiwe wena ngaphezu kwezinto zonke ezizitho zine, neento zonke eziphilileyo zasendle; uya kuhamba ngesisu, udle uthuli, yonke imihla yobomi bakho. 3:15 Ndiya kumisa ubutshaba phakathi kwakho nomfazi, naphakathi kwembewu yakho nembewu yakhe; yona iya kukutyumza intloko, wena uya kuyityumza isithende. 3:16 Wathi kumfazi, Ndiya kukwandisa kakhulu ukubulaleka kwakho ekumitheni, uzale abantwana unembulaleko; inkanuko yakho ibe sendodeni yakho, ikulawule yona. 3:17 KuAdam wathi, Ngokuba uphulaphule izwi lomkakho, wadla kuwo umthi endakuwisela umthetho ngawo, ndathi, Uze ungadli kuwo, uqalekisiwe umhlaba ngenxa yakho; uya kudla kuwo ubulaleka, yonke imihla yobomi bakho. 3:18 Uya kukuntshulela imithana enameva neenkunzane, udle umfuno wasendle. 3:19 Uya kudla ukudla kokubila kobuso bakho, ude ubuyele emhlabeni kobuso bakho, ude ubuyele emhlabeni, kuba uthatyathwe kuwo; ngokuba uluthuli, uya kubuyela kwaseluthulini. 3:20 UAdam walibiza igama lomkakhe ngokuthi nguEva, ngokuba yena engunina wabaphilileyo bonke. 3:21 UYehova uThixo wabenzela iingubo zezintsu uAdam nomkakhe, wabambathisa. 3:22 Wathi uYehova uThixo, Yabonani, umntu usuke waba njengomnye wethu, ukwazi okulungileyo nokubi; hleze ke olule isandla sakhe, athabathe nakuwo umthi wobomi, adle, aphile ngonaphakade: 3:23 uYehova uThixo wamndulula emyezweni we-Eden, ukuba asebenze umhlaba abethatyathwe kuwo. 3:24 Wamgxotha ke umntu; wamisa ngasempumalanga kuwo umyezo we-Eden iikerubhi, nelangatye lekrele elijikajikayo lokugcina indlela eya emthini wobomi.

4:1 Ke kaloku uAdam wamazi uEva umkakhe; wamitha wazala uKayin, wathi, Ndizuze indoda ngoYehova. 4:2 Waphinda wazala umninawa wakhe, uAbheli; uAbheli waba ngumalusi wezimvu, uKayin waba ngumsebenzi womhlaba. 4:3 Kwathi ekupheleni kwamihla ithile, uKayin wathabatha eziqhameni zomhlaba, wazisa umnikelo kuYehova. 4:4 UAbheli wazisa naye, ethabathe kumazibulo ezimvu zakhe, kwezinamanqatha. Waza uYehova wambheka uAbheli nomnikelo wakhe. 4:5 Akambheka uKayin nomnikelo wakhe. Waqumba kunene uKayin, basangana ubuso bakhe. 4:6 Wathi uYehova kuKayin, Yini na ukuba uqumbe, yini na ukuba busangane ubuso bakhe? 4:7 Ukuba uthe walungisa, abuyi kuswabuluka ubuso yini na? Ukuba uthe akwalungisa, isono sibuthumile ngasesangweni, singxamele wena; ke wena, silawule. 4:8 Wathetha uKayin noAbheli umninawa wakhe, kwathi besendle, wesuka uKayin wamvunukela uAbheli umninawa wakhe, wambulala. 4:9 Wathi uYehova kuKayin, Uphi na uAbheli, umninawa wakho? Wathi yena, Andazi; ndingumgcini womninawa wam, yini na? 4:10 Wathi, Wenze ntoni na? Izwi legazi lomninawa wakho liyakhala emhlabeni kum. 4:11 Ngoko uqalekisiwe emhlabeni, owakhamise umlomo wawo ukuba ulithabathe igazi lomninawa wakho esandleni sakho. 4:12 Xenikweni uwusebenzayo umhlaba, awusayi kuphinda ukunike amandla awo; uya kubhadula uphalaphale ehlabathini. 4:13 Wathi uKayin kuYehova, ityala lam likhulu ngokungenakuthwalwa. 4:14 Yabona, undigxdothile namhla phezu komhlaba; ndiya kusithela nasebusweni bakho, ndibhadule ndiphalaphale ehlabathini bathi bonke abantu abandifumanayo bandibulale. 4:15 Wathi uYehova kuye, xa kunjalo, bonke ababulala uKayin kophindezelwa kubo kasixhenxe. UYehova wammisela uKayin umqondiso, ukuze bonke abamfumanayo bangamsiki. 4:16 Waphuma uKayin, wemka ebusweni bukaYehova; wahlala ezweni lakwaKuphalaphala phambi kwe-Eden. 4:17 UKayin wamazi umkakhe, wamitha, wazala uEnoki. Wakha umzi, wawuthiya loo mzi ngegama lonyana wakhe uEnoki. 4:18 UEnoki wazalelwa uIradi; uIradi wazala uMehuyaheli; uMehuyaheli wazala uMetusaheli; uMetusaheli wazala uLameki. 4:19 ULameki wazeka abafazi ababini; igama lomnye belinguAda, igama lowesibini belinguZila. 4:20 UAda wazala uYabhali yena waba nguyise wabahlala ezintenteni, nabafuyileyo. 4:21 Igama lomninawa wakhe belinguYubhali; yena waba nguyise wabo bonke abaphatha uhadi nogwali. 4:22 UZila uthe naye wazala uTubhalekayin, obekhanda yonke impahla enobukhali yobhedu nesinyithi; udade woTubhalekayin ebenguNahama. 4:23 Wathi uLameki kubafazi bakhe, ada noZila, liveni ilizwi lam. Bafazi bakaLameki, phulaphulani intetho yam. Sendibulele indoda ngenxa yenxeba lam, nendodana ngenxa yomvumbo wam. 4:24 Xa uKayin aya kuphindezelwa kasixhenxe, Yena uLameki uya kuphindezelwa kamashumi osixhenxe anesixhenxe. 4:25 UAdam wabuya wamazi umkakhe, wazala unyana, wathi igama lakhe nguSete, kuba wathi, UThixo undimisele enye imbewu esikhundleni sika-Abheli owabulawa nguKayin. 4:26 USete naye wazalelwa unyana, wathi igama lakhe nguEnoshe. Kwaqalwa oko ukunqulwa igama likaYehova.

Wehla uAbraham waya eYiputa, ukuze aphambukele khona; ngokuba indlala ibinzima elizweni. 12:11 Kwathi, akusondela ukuba angene eYiputa, wathi kuSarayi umkakhe, Uyabona ke, ndiyazi ukuba ungumfazi omhle imbonakalo. 12:12 Kothi ke, akukubona amaYiputa, athi, Ngumkakhe lo; andibulale, akuyeke wena udle ubomi. 12:13 Uze uthi, ungudade wethu wena; ukuze kulunge kum ngenxa yakho, umphefumlo wam udle ubomi ngenxa enawe. 12:14 Kwathi, akufika uAbram eYiputa, ambona amaYiputa umfazi ukuba uyinzwakazi. 12:15 Bambona abathetheli bakaFaro, bamdumisa kuFaro; umfazi wasiwa endlwini kaFaro. 12:16 Wamphatha ngokulungileyo uAbram ngenxa yakhe; wanempahla emfutshane, neenkomo, namaesile, nabakhonzi, nabakhonzazana, neemazi zamaesile, neenkamela. 12:17 UYehova wambetha uFaro nendlu yakhe ngezibetho ezikhulu ngenxa kaSarayi, umka-Abram. 12:18 UFaro wambiza uAbram wathi, Yintoni na le uyenzileyo kum? Yini na ukuba ungandixeleli ukuba ngumkakho? 12:19 Yini na ukuba uthi, ngudade wenu? Ndamthabatha ukuba abe ngumfazi wam.

Umgwebi wehlabathi lonke akayi kwenza okusesikweni yini na? 18:26 Wathi uYehova, Ukuba ndithe ndafumana eSodom amalungisa amashumi mahlanu phakathi komzi, ndoyixolela yonke loo ndawo ngenxa yawo. 18:27 Waphendula uAbraham, wathi, Khawubone, sendide ndathetha eNkosini, ndiluthuli nothuthu. 18:28 Hi ke, kwasweleka isihlanu kumalungisa amashumi mahlanu, wowonakalisa ngenxa yesihlanu yini na wonke umzi?

Yathi, Andiyi kuwonakalisa ngenxa yeshumi elinye. 18:33 Wemka uYehova, akugqiba ukuthetha kuAbraham; uAbraham wabuyela endaweni yakhe.

UYehova usithume ukuba siyonakalise. 19:14 Waphuma, uLote, wathetha kubayeni beentombi zakhe, abaya kuzeka iintombi zakhe, wathi, Sukani, niphume kule ndawo; ngokuba uYehova uya kuwonakalisa lo mzi.

Ndamfaka ke ijikazi lempumlo ethatheni lakhe, nezacholo ezandleni zakhe. 24:48 Ndathoba, ndamnqula uYehova, ndambonga uYehova, uThixo wenkosi yam uAbraham, ondikhokeleyo endleleni eyinyaniso, ukuba ndimzekele unyana wakhe intombi yomzalwana wenkosi yam. 24:49 Ngoku ke, ukuba niyayenzela inceba nenyaniso inkosi yam, ndixeleleni; ukuba anenjenjalo, ndixeleleni; ukuze ndibheke ekunene, nokuba kusekhohlo. 24:50 Waphendula uLabhan noBhetuweli, bathi, Le nto iphuma kuYehova; asinakuthetha nto kuwe, nokuba yembi nokuba yelungileyo. 24:51 Nanko uRebheka phambi kwakho. Mthabathe, uhambe, abe ngumfazi wonyana wenkosi yakho, njengoko akuthethileyo uYehova. 24:52 Kwathi, akuweva umkhonzi ka-Abraham amazwi abo, waqubuda emhlabeni kuYehova. 24:53 Umkhonzi wavelisa impahla yesilivere, nempahla yegolide, nezambatho, wanika uRebheka; wanika umnakwabo nonina izinto ezinconywayo. 24:54 Badla, basela, yena namadoda abenaye, balala, bavuka kusasa, wathi, Ndindululeni ndiye enkosini yam. 24:55 Wathi umnakwabo nonina, Makhe ihlale intombi nathi iintsuku nokuba zilishumi, ihambe ke emveni koko. 24:56 Wathi kubo, Musani ukundibambezela; uYehova uyenze yanempumelelo indlela yam; ndindululeni ndiye enkosini yam. 24:57 Bathi, Masiyibize intombi, sive ngomlomo wayo. 24:58 Bambiza uRebheka, bathi kuye, Uya kuhamba na nale ndoda?

Wathi umkhonzi, Yinkosi yam. Wathabatha ke isigqubuthelo, wazigqubuthela. 24:66 Umkhonzi wamxelela uIsake izinto zonke abezenzile. 24:67 UIsake wamsa ententeni kaSara unina, wamzeka uRebheka, waba ngumkakhe; wamthanda. UIsake wathuthuzeleka ke ngenxa yonina.

Waya kubuza kuYehova. 25:23 Wathi uYehova kuye, Zimbini iintlanga esizalweni sakho; Kuya kwahluka zizwe zibini esiswini sakho, Esinye somelele ngaphezu kwesinye; Omkhulu uya kukhonza omnci. 25:24 Yazaliseka ke imihla yakhe yokuzala, nanko, ingamawele esizalweni sakhe. 25:25 Laphuma elokuqala lingqombela, lonke liphela njengengubo exhonti; balithiya igama elinguEsawu. 25:26 Emveni koko kwaphuma umninawa walo, isandla sakhe sibambe isithende sikaEsawu, wamthiya igama elinguYakobi. UIsake wayeminyaka imashumi mathandathu ezelwe, ukuzalwa kwabo. 25:27 Akhula ke amakhwenkwe; uEsawu waba lizingela, indoda yasendle; uYakobi waba yindoda egqibeleleyo, ihleli ezintenteni. 25:28 UIsake wathanda uEsawu, ngokuba inyamakazi ibimnandi emlonyeni wakhe; ke yena uRebheka wathanda uYakobi. 25:29 UYakobi wayepheke ukudla; wafika uEsawu evela ezindle, etyhafile. 25:30 Wathi uEsawu kuYakobi, Khawundiphe ndiginye kwinto engqombela, loo nto ingqombela, kuba ndityhafile; ngenxa yoko kwathiwa igama lakhe nguEdom. 25:31 Wathi uYakobi, Thengisa namhlanje ngobuzibulo bakho kum. 25:32 Wathi uEsawu, Yabona, ndiza kufa; buyintoni na kum ubuzibulo? 25:33 Wathi uYakobi, Ndifungele namhlanje. Wamfungela; wathengisa ke ngobuzibulo bakhe kuYakobi. 25:34 UYakobi wamnika uEsawu isonka neentlumayo eziphekiweyo; wadla, wasela, wesuka wemka; wabudela ke uEsawu ubuzibulo bakhe.

Wanqamka ukuzala.

31:1 Ke kaloku waweva amazwi oonyana bakaLabhan, besithi, UYakobi uzithabathile zonke izinto abenazo ubawo; ubenze ngezinto zikabawo obu butyebi bakhe bonke. 31:2 Wabubona uYakobi ubuso bukaLabhan, nabo bungenjengezolo nezolo elinye kuye. 31:3 UYehova wathi kuYakobi, Buyela ezweni likayihlo, kwelokuzalwa kwakho; ndoba nawe. 31:4 UYakobi wathumela, wabiza uRakeli noLeya, ukuba beze endle empahleni yakhe emfutshane. 31:5 Wathi kubo, Ndiyabubona ubuso bukayihlo, ukuba abunjengezolo nezolo elinye kum; ke uThixo kabawo ubenam. 31:6 Niyazi nina, ukuba uyihlo ndimkhonze ngamandla am onke; 31:7 ke uyihlo undidephisele, wawuguqula umvuzo wam kalishumi; kodwa uThixo akamvumelanga ukuba andenze into embi. 31:8 Xa athe, Enala yoba ngumvuzo wakho isuke yonke impahla emfutshane yazala enala; xa athe, Enemizila yoba ngumvuzo wakho, isuke yonke impahla emfutshane yazala enemizila. 31:9 Wayihlutha uThixo imfuyo kayihlo, wandinika. 31:10 Kwathi, ngexesha lokuphathana kwempahla emfutshane, ndawaphakamisa amehlo am, ndabona ephupheni, nanzo iinkunzi ezikhwelayo empahleni emfutshane zinemizila, zinala, zinomchokose. 31:11 Sathi isithunywa sikaThixo kum ephupheni, Yakobi; ndathi, Ndilapha. 31:12 Sathi, Khawuphakamise amehlo akho, ubone; zonke iinkunzi ezikhwelayo empahleni emfutshane zinemizila, zinala, zinomchokose; kuba ndizibonile zonke izinto azenzayo uLabhan kuwe. 31:13 NdinguThixo waseBheteli, apho wasithambisa khona isimiso, apho wabhambathisa ngesibhambathiso kum. Suka ngoko, uphume kweli lizwe, ubuyele ezweni lokuzalwa kwakho. 31:14 Baphendula uRakeli noLeya, bathi kuye, Sisenasabelo nalifa lini na endlwini kabawo? 31:15 Akuthiwa singabasemzini kuye yini na? Kuba uthengise ngathi, wamana eyidla nemali yethu. 31:16 Ngoko kuze bonke ubutyebi abuhluthileyo uThixo kubawo, bube bobethu, noboonyana bethu, kaloku ke konke akuthethileyo uThixo kuwe kwenze. 31:17 Wesuka uYakobi wabakhwelisa oonyana bakhe, nabafazi bakhe, ezinkameleni. 31:18 Waqhuba yonke impahla yakhe, nayo yonke ingqwebo yakhe abeyiqwebile, impahla abeyifuyile, abeyiqwebile ePadan-aram, ukuze aye kuIsake uyise ezweni lakwaKanan. 31:19 ULabhan ubeye kucheba impahla yakhe emfutshane; uRakeli wayiba imilonde-khaya ebiyekayise. 31:20 UYakobi wamlalanisa uLabhan umAram, ekubeni engamxelelanga ukuba uyabaleka. 31:21 Wabaleke ke, yena nako konke abenako; wesuka, wawuwela uMlambo, wabubhekisa ubuso bakhe entabeni yaseGiliyadi. 31:22 Waxelelwa uLabhan ngomhla wesithathu ukuba uYakobi ubalekile. 31:23 Wathabatha abazalwana bakhe, wamphuthuma uhambo lwemihla esixhenxe; bafumanana entabeni yaseGiliyadi. 31:24 Weza uThixo kuLabhan umAram ephupheni ebusuku, wathi kuye, Zilumkele, ungathethi nto kuYakobi, nokuba yelungileyo nokuba yembi. 31:25 ULabhan wafika kuYakobi. Ke kaloku uYakobi ubeyigxumekile intente yakhe entabeni; uLabhan nabazalwana bakhe bagxumeka entabeni yaseGiliyadi. 31:26 Wathi uLabhan kuYakobi, Wenza ntoni na ukundilalanisa, uziqhube iintombi zam njengabathinjwe ngekrele? 31:27 Yini na ukuba uzimele, ubaleke, undilalanise, ungandixeleli? Ngendiba ndokundulule ngemivuyo, nangeengoma, nangengqongqo, nangohadi. 31:28 Yini na ukuba ungandivumeli ndibange oonyana bam neentombi zam? Kaloku wenze ngobudenge. 31:29 Kusemandleni esandla sam ukunenza ububi; ke uThixo kayihlo uthethe nam phezolo, esithi, Zilumkele, ungathethi nto noYakobi, nokuba yelungileyo nokuba yembi. 31:30 Ngoku umkileyo nje, ngokuba walangazelela kakhulu indlu kayihlo, uzibeleni na zona izithixo zam? 31:31 Waphendula uYakobi wathi kuLabhan, Bendisoyika, kuba bendisithi, Hleze uzixhakamfule kum iintombi zakho. 31:32 Osukuba uzifumana kuye izithixo zakho, makangadli bomi. Phambi kwabazalwana bethu fanisa into yakho enam, uyithabathe. Wayengazi uYakobi ukuba uRakeli uzibile. 31:33 Wangena uLabhan ententeni kaYakobi, nasententeni kaLeya, nasententeni yeempelesi zombini; akazifumana. Waphuma ententeni kaLeya, wangena ententeni kaRakeli. 31:34 Ke kaloku uRakeli ebeyithabathile imilonde-khaya, wayifaka phakathi kwesali yenkamela, wahlala phezu kwayo. ULabhan wayiphuthaphutha yonke intente, akayifumana. 31:35 Wathi kuyise, Mawungabi namsindo, nkosi yam, kuba ndingenako ukusuka phambi kwakho, ngokuba ndihleli phezu kwengca. Wagquthagqutha, akayifumana imilonde-khaya. 31:36 Wavutha umsindo kaYakobi, wabambana noLabhan. Waphendula uYakobi, wathi kuLabhan, Luyintoni na ukreqo lwam, siyintoni na isono sam, ukuba undisukele ngokushushu nje? 31:37 Uziphuthaphuthile zonke iimpahla zam; ufumene ntoni na yazo zonke iimpahla zendlu yakho? Yibeke apha phambi kwabazalwana bam, nabazalwana bakho, bahlule phakathi kwethu sobabini. 31:38 Le minyaka imashumi mabini bendinawe; iimazi zakho zeegusha, neemazi zebhokhwe aziphunzanga, neenkunzi zempahla yakho emfutshane andizidlanga. 31:39 Into eqwengiweyo andiyizisanga kuwe, ndayimisela ngokwam; wayibiza esandleni sam nokuba ibiwe emini, nokuba ibiwe ebusuku. 31:40 Emini ndadliwa bubushushu, ebusuku yingqele; ubuthongo bam bemka emehlweni am. 31:41 Kwaba njalo kum le minyaka imashumi mabini endlwini yakho; ndakukhonza iminyaka elishumi elinamine ngenxa yeentombi zakho zombini, iminyaka emithandathu ngenxa yempahla yakho emfuthsane; uwuguqule kalishumi umvuzo wam. 31:42 Koko uThixo kabawo, uThixo ka-Abraham, Ohlonelwa nguIsake, waba nam, inene unge undindulule ndilambatha ngoku. UThixo uzibonile iintsizi zam nokuxelenga kwezandla zam, wakohlwaya phezolo. 31:43 ULabhan waphendula wathi kuYakobi, Iintombi ziintombi zam, oonyana ngoonyana bam, impahla emfutshane yimpahla yam, neento zonke ozibonayo zezam. Ndinakwenza ntoni na namhla ezintombini zam ezi, nakoonyana azo ezibazeleyo? 31:44 Yiza ngoku, senze umnqophiso, mna nawe, ube lingqina phakathi kwam nawe. 31:45 UYakobi wathabatha ilitye, waliphakamisa lasisimiso. 31:46 Wathi uYakobi kubazalwana bakhe, Cholani amatye. Bathabatha amatye, benza imfumba, badla khona phezu kwaloo mfumba. 31:47 Wathi ukuyibiza uLabhan yiYegarsahaduta, uYakobi wathi ukuyibiza yiGaledi. 31:48 Wathi uLabhan, Le mfumba ilingqina phakathi kwam nawe namhla, ngenxa yoko yathiywa igama eliyiGaledi; 31:49 neliyiMizpa, ngokuba wathi Makobonisele uYehova phakathi kwam nawe, sakuba sisithelene; 31:50 ukuba uthe wazicinezela iintombi zam, nokuba uthe wazeka abafazi phezu kweentombi zam, akukho bani unathi. Khangela, uThixo ulingqina phakathi kwam nawe. 31:51 ULabhan wathi kuYakobi, Yabona le mfumba, yabona esi simiso ndisiphakamisileyo phakathi kwam nawe; 31:52 ingqina yile mfumba, ingqina sesi simiso, ukuba andiyi kugqitha mna kule mfumba ndiye kuwe, ukuba akuyi kugqitha wena kule mfumba nakwesi simiso uze kum, senzane ububi. 31:53 UThixo ka-Abraham, uThixo kaNahore, uThixo woyise wabo, makagwebe phakathi kwethu. UYakobi wafunga Ohlomelwa nguyise uIsake. 31:54 UYakobi wabingelela umbingelelo entabeni apho, wabiza abazalwana bakhe, ukuba badle isonka.

32:1 UYakobi wahamba ngendlela yakhe; zaqubisana naye izithunywa zikaThixo. 32:2 Wathi uYakobi akuzibona, Ngumkhosi kaThixo lo; wathi igama laloo ndawo yiMahanayim. 32:3 Ke kaloku uYakobi wathuma abathunywa phambi kwakhe, baya kuEsawu, umkhuluwa wakhe, ezweni lakwaSehire, emhlabeni wakwaEdom. 32:4 Wabawisela umthetho esithi, Nothi ukuthetha enkosini yam uEsawu, Utsho umkhonzi wakho uYakobi ukuthi, Bendingumphambukeli kuLabhan, ndalibala khona kwada kwangoku; 32:5 ndineenkomo namaesile, nempahla emfutshane, nabakhonzi, nabakhonzazana; ndithumele ukuxelela inkosi yam, ukuze indibabale. 32:6 Abathunywa babuyela kuYakobi besithi, Sifikile kumkhuluwa wakho uEsawu, naye uyeza kukukhawulela, enamadoda angamakhulu omane. 32:7 Woyika kunene uYakobi, wabandezeleka, wabahlula abantu ababenaye, nempahla emfutshane, neenkomo, neenkamela; iimfuduka zambini. 32:8 Wathi, Ukuba uEsawu uthe wafika kwenye imfuduka, wayichitha, yosinda imfuduka eseleyo. 32:9 Wathi uYakobi, Thixo kabawo uAbraham, Thixo kabawo uIsake, Yehova, uthe kum, Buyela ezweni lakowenu, kwelokuzalwa kwakho; ndokuphatha kakuhle. 32:10 Andiyilingene inceba yonke, nenyaniso yonke oyenzileyo kumkhonzi wakho; kuba ndayiwela le Yordan, ndinentonga yam yodwa, kodwa ngoku ndimfuduka mbini. 32:11 Khawundihlangule esandleni somkhuluwa wam, esandleni sikaEsawu; ngokuba ndiyamoyika, hleze afike andibulale, unina ndawonye nabantwana. 32:12 Wawuthe wena, Inene, ndiya kukuphatha kakuhle, imbewu yakho nidyenze ibe njengentlabathi yolwandle, engenakubalwa ngenxa yobuninzi. 32:13 Ke kaloku yena walala khona ngobo busuku. Wathabatha entweni esifike kuyo isandla sakhe, yangumnikelo kuEsawu, umkhuluwa wakhe; 32:14 iimazi zeebhokhwe ezimakhulu mabini, neenkunzi zeebhokhwe ezimashumi mabini, neemazi neegusha ezimakhulu mabini, neenkunzi zeegusha ezimashumi mabini, 32:15 neenkamela ezisengwayo ezimashumi mathathu, ezinamathole azo, neemazi zeenkomo ezimashumi mane, neenkunzi zeenkomo ezilishumi, neemazi zamaesile ezimashumi mabini, namaxhamxwa alishumi. 32:16 Wazinikela esandleni sabakhonzi bakhe, walowo umhlambi wawodwa. Wathi kubakhonzi bakhe, Welani phambi kwam, nibeke isithuba phakathi komhlambi nomhlambi. 32:17 Owokuqala wamwisela umthetho, wathi, Xa athe uEsawu umkhuluwa wam waqubisana nawe, wakubuza ngokuthi, Ungokabani na? Uya phi na? Zezikabani na ezi zinto ziphambi kwakho? 32:18 wothi, Zezomkhonzi wakho uYakobi: ngumnikelo othunyelwe inkosi yam uEsawu; nanku ke naye ngasemva kwethu. 32:19 Nowesibini, nowesithathu wamwisela umthetho, nabo bonke ababeyilandela imihlambi, esithi, Nothetha ngolo hlobo kuEsawu, nakufumanana naye. 32:20 Kananjalo nothi, Nanko mkhonzi wakho uYakobi engasemva kwethu. Kuba wathi, Mandibucamagushe ubuso bakhe ngomnikelo ohamba phambi kwam, emveni koko ndibubone ubuso bakhe; mhlawumbi wondibuka. 32:21 Umnikelo lowo wahamba phambi kwakhe; ke yena walala ngobo busuku emfudukeni. 32:22 Wavuka ngobo busuku, wathabatha abafazi bakhe bobabini, nabakhonzanzana bakhe bobabini noonyana bakhe abalishumi elinamnye, waliwela izibuko le Yabhoki. 32:23 Wabathabatha ke, wabaweza emfuleni lowo, waziweza zonke izinto abenazo. 32:24 UYakobi wasala yedwa; kwazamana indoda naye kwada kwathi qhiphu ukusa. 32:25 Yakubona ukuba ayimeyisi, yachukumisa usikrobana womlenze wakhe, wancothuka usikrobana womlenze kaYakobi ngokuzamana nayo. 32:26 Yathi, Ndindulule ndihambe, kuba kuyasa. Wathi yena, Andiyi kukundulula umke, ukuba akuthanga undisikelele. 32:27 Yathi kuye, Ngubani na igama lakho? Wathi, NdinguYakobi. 32:28 Yathi, Igama lakho akusayi kuba sathiwa nguYakobi; kuya kuthiwa unguSirayeli, ngokuba ulwe noThixo nabantu, weyisa. 32:29 Wabuza uYakobi wathi, Ndixelele igama lakho. Yathi, Ulibuzelani na igama lam? Yamsikelela khona. 32:30 UYakobi wayithiya loo ndawo igama eliyiPeniyeli; kuba wathi, Ndibonene noThixo, wahlangulwa umphefumlo wam. 32:31 Lathi chapha ilanga, akudlula ePeniweli, ejingxela ngomlenze wakhe. 32:32 Ngenxa yoko oonyana bakaSirayeli abawudli umsipha kasikrobana ophezu kosikrobana womlenze, nanamhla; ngokuba yachukumisa usikrobana womlenze kaYakobi emsipheni kasikrobana.

Wathi, Yeyokuba ndibabalwe emehlweni enkosi yam. 33:9 Wathi uEsawu, Ndanele, mninawa; makube kokwakho okwakho. 33:10 Wathi uYakobi, Hayi, makungabi njalo. Ukuba kaloku ndibabalwe emehlweni akho, thabatha umnikelo wam lo esandleni sam; kuba ngenxa yoko ndibubonile ubuso bakho, ndanga ndibona ubuso bukaThixo, ndalikholo kuwe. 33:11 Khawuyithabathe intsikelelo yam ezisiweyo kuwe, ngokuba uThixo undibabale, kuba ndineento zonke. Wamjoka, wayithabatha. 33:12 Wathi uEsawu, Masinduluke, sihambe; ndohamba phambi kwakho. 33:13 Wathi kuye, Inkosi yam iyazi ukuba abantwana bathambile, nempahla emfutshane, neenkomo ezanyisayo ziphezu kwam; yothi iqhutywe kakhulu imini enye, ife yonke impahla emfutshane. 33:14 Inkosi yam mayikhe igqithele phambi komkhonzi wayo ndihambise kuhle ngokuhamba kwempahla ephambi kwam, nangokuhamba kwabantwana, ndide ndifike enkosini yam kwaSehire. 33:15 Wathi uEsawu, Makhe ndiyishiye kuwe inxenye yabantu abanam. Wathi yena, Ngani na? Mandibabalwe emehlweni enkosi yam. 33:16 Wabuya ngaloo mhla uEsawu ngendlela yakhe, esiya kwaSehire. 33:17 UYakobi wanduluka, waya eSukoti, wazakhela indlu, iinkomo zakhe wazibiyela iintlantsi; ngenxa yoko kwathiwa igama laloo ndawo yiSukoti. 33:18 Wafika uYakobi enoxolo emzini kaShekem, osezweni lakwaKanan, ekuveleni kwakhe ePadan-aram; wamisa iintente phambi komzi. 33:19 Wathenga isiziba somhlaba, apho wayitwabulula khona intente yakhe, esandleni soonyana bakaHamore usoShekem, ngekhulu lemali. 33:20 Wamisa khona isibingelelo, wathi ukusithiya nguThixo, uThixo kaSirayeli.

Yinene na ukuba uya kusilawula? Kwaba kukhona bamtiyayo ngenxa yamaphupha akhe, nangenxa yamazwi akhe. 37:9 Wabuya waphupha elinye iphupha, walixela kubakhuluwa bakhe, wathi, Yabonani, ndibuye ndaphupha iphupha; ndiphuphe ilanga nenyanga neenkwenkwezi ezilushumi elinanye ziqubuda kum. 37:10 Wakuxela kuyise, nakubakhuluwa bakhe. Uyise wamkhalimela, wathi kuye, Liphupha lini na eli uliphuphileyo? Mna, nonyoko, nabakhuluwa bakho, soza size kuqubuda kuwe na emhlabeni? 37:11 Abakhuluwa bakhe bammonela, ke yena uyise waligcina eli lizwi. 37:12 Ke kaloku abakhuluwa bakhe baya kwalusa impahla emfutshane kayise kwaShekem. 37:13 USirayeli wathi kuYosefu, Abakhuluwa bakho abalusi eShekem na? Yiza, ndikuthume kubo. 37:14 Wathi yena kuye, Ndilapha. Wathi kuye, Khawuye kukhangela ukuphila kwabakhuluwa bakho, nokuphila kwempahla emfutshane; ubuye uze kundixelela. Wamthuma ke, emsusa entilini yaseHebron, waya eShekem. 37:15 Wafunyanwa ngumfo, ebhadula endle; umfo lowo wambuza wathi, Ufuna ntoni na? 37:16 Wathi, Ndifuna abakhuluwa bam; khawundixelele apho balusa khona. 37:17 Wathi umfo, Bandulukile apha, kuba khendeva besithi, Masiye eDotan. UYosefu wabalandela abakhuluwa bakhe, wabafumana eDotan. 37:18 Bambona ke esekude, engekasondeli kubo, benza iyelenqe lokumbulala. 37:19 Bathetha omnye komnye besithi, Nanko lo mphuphi esiza. 37:20 Yizani ke ngoko, simbulale, simphose komnye wemihadi, sithi, Udliwe lirhamncwa, size sibone ukuba amaphupha akhe oba yintoni na. 37:21 Weva uRubhen, wamhlangula esandleni sabo; wathi, Masingambulali afe. 37:22 Wathi uRhubhen kubo, Musani ukuphalaza gazi; mphoseni kulo mhadi usentlango; musani ukumsa sandla. Watsho, ukuze amhlangule esandleni sabo, ambuyisele kuyise. 37:23 Kwathi akufika uYosefu kubakhuluwa bakhe, bamhluba uYosefu ingubo yakhe, ingubo ende enemikhono abenayo; 37:24 bamthabatha, bamphosa emhadini; umhadi lowo ube uze, kungekho manzi kuwo. 37:25 Bahlala phantsi, badla isonka; baphakamisa amehlo abo, bakhangela, nango umkhoko wamaIshmayeli uvela eGiliyadi, uneenkamela zithwele intlaka emhlophe, namafutha aqholiweyo, nentlaka emnandi, besihla nazo besiya eYiputa. 37:26 UYuda wathi kubazalwana bakhe, Yinzuzoni na ukuthi simbulale umninawa wethu, sifihle igazi lakhe? 37:27 Yizani sithengise ngaye kumaIshmayeli; isandla sethu masingabi phezu kwakhe, ngokuba ngumzalwana wethu, yinyama yethu. Bamphulaphula abazalwana bakhe. 37:28 Adlula amaMidiyan lawo angabarhwebi; bamrhola, bamkhupha uYosefu emhadini, bathengisa ngoYosefu kumaIshmayeli ngeesilivere ezimashumi mabini; amsa uYosefu eYiputa. 37:29 Wabuyela uRubhen emhadini. Yini? UYosefu akakho emhadini; wazidrazula iingubo zakhe. 37:30 Wabuyela kubaninawa bakhe, wathi, Umfana akakho; mna ke ndosuka ndiye ngaphi na? 37:31 Bayithabatha ingubo kaYosefu, baxhela inkunzi yebhokhwe exhonti, bayithi nkxu ingubo egazini. 37:32 Bayithumela ingubo ende enemikhono ekhaya, bayisa kuyise, bathi, Siyichole; khawufanise, ukuba yingubo yonyana wakho, asiyiyo, sini na? 37:33 Wayifanisa, wathi, Yingubo yonyana wam; udliwe lirhamncwa; inene, uqwengiwe uYosefu. 37:34 UYakobi wazikrazula iingubo zakhe, wabeka ezirhwexayo esinqeni sakhe, wamenzela isijwili unyana wakhe imihla emininzi. 37:35 Besuka bonke oonyana bakhe nazo zonke iintombi zakhe, beza kumthuthuzela; akavuma kuthuthuzelwa, wathi, Ndiya kuhla ndiye kunyana wam kwelabafileyo, ndisenza isijwili. Uyise wamlilela ke. 37:36 AmaMidiyan aya athengisa ngaya eYiputa kuPotifare, umbusi wakwaFaro, umthetheli wabasiki.

Wathi, Wondinika ntoni na, ukuze ndikuvumele ukuba undingene? 38:17 Wathi, Mna ndothumela ndithabathe itakane lebhokwe elisempahleni emfutshane. Wathi, Ewe, ukuba uthe wandinika isibambiso, ude ulithumele kum. 38:18 Wathi, Ndikunike sibambiso sini na? Wathi yena, Umsesane wakho, nesidanga sakho, nomsimelelo wakho osesandleni sakho. Wamnika ke, wamngena, wamitha yena ngaye. 38:19 Wesuka wemka, wasisusa isigqubuthelo sakhe, wambatha iingubo zobuhlolokazi bakhe. 38:20 UYuda walithumela itakane lebhokhwe ngesandla sesihlobo sakhe saseAdulam, ukuze samkele isibambiso esandleni senkazana leyo; asiyifumananga ke. 38:21 Sabuza kubantu baloo ndawo, sathi, Liphi na ing’awukazi ebe lise-Enayim ngasendleleni? Bathi, Akubangakho ng’awukazi apha. 38:22 Sabuyela kuYuda sathi, Andilifumananga; nabo abantu baloo ndawo bathe, Akubangakho ng’awukazi apha. 38:23 Wathi uYuda, Malizithabathe, hleze sidelwe. Yabona, ndithumele eli takane, ke wena akulifumananga. 38:24 Kwathi, emva kweenyanga ezintathu, waxelelwa uYuda kwathiwa, UTamare, umolokazana wakho, uhenyuzile; kananjalo, yabona, umithi ngokuhenyuza oko.

UYosefu wathi kubo, Izityhilo asizezikaThixo na? Khanindixelele iphupha elo. 40:9 Umphathi wabangcamli wamxelela uYosefu iphupha lakhe, wathi kuye, Ephupheni lam ndibone umdiliya uphambi kwam; 40:10 emdiliyeni apho amasebe emathathu, wangathi wona uphuma amathupha, wadubula iintyantyambo zawo, izihloko zawo zavuthwa zaziidiliya; 40:11 indebe kaFaro isesandleni sam; ndizithabathe iidiliya, ndizifaxange endebeni kaFaro, ndiyinikele indebe esandleni sikaFaro. 40:12 UYosefu wathi kuye, Siso esi isityhilo salo: amasebe amathathu lawo yimihla emithathu; 40:13 kusele imihla emithathu, aze uFaro ayiphakamise intloko yakho, akubuyisele endaweni yakho, uyinikele indebe kaFaro esandleni sakhe ngokwesiko langaphambili, oko ubungumngcamli wakhe. 40:14 Uze undikhumbule ke, wakulungelwa, undenzele inceba, undikhankanye kuFaro, undikhuphe kule ndlu; 40:15 ngokuba inene ndabiwa ezweni lamaHebhere, nalapha andenzanga nto, ukuba bandifake emhadini lo. 40:16 Umphathi waboji-zonka wabona ukuba isityhilo eso silungile, wathi kuYosefu, Nam ndiphuphile; ndibone iingobozi ezintathu zezonka ezimhlophe ezisentlokweni yam; 40:17 engobozini ephezulu kukho izidlo ngezidlo zonke zikaFaro ezingumsebenzi womoji-zonka, iintaka zisidla kweyona ngobozi iphezulu entlokweni yam. 40:18 Waphendula uYosefu wathi, Siso esi isityhilo salo: iingobozi ezintathu ezo yimihla emithathu; 40:19 kusele imihla emithathu, aze uFaro ayiphakamise intloko yakho, isuke kuwe, akuxhome emthini, ziyidle iintaka inyama yakho iphele. 40:20 Kwathi ngomhla wasithathu, umhla wokuzalwa kukaFaro, wabenzela isidlo bonke abakhonzi bakhe, wayiphakamisa intloko yomphathi wabangcamli, nentloko yomphathi waboji bezonka phakathi kwabakhonzi bakhe. 40:21 Wambuyisela umphathi wabangcamli kubungcamli bakhe; wayinikela indebe esandleni sikaFaro. 40:22 Ke yena umphathi waboji bezonka wamxhoma, njengoko uYosefu wabatyhilelayo. 40:23 Umphathi wabangcamli akamkhumbulanga uYosefu, wamlibala.

IGenesis 41

41:1 Kwathi, ekupheleni kweminyaka emibini ezeleyo, uFaro waphupha emi phezu komlambo; 41:2 nanko kunyuka, kuphuma emlanjeni, amathokazi asixhenxe amahle, etyebile, esidla engcotyeni; 41:3 nanko kunyuka, kuphuma emlanjeni, amanye amathokazi asixhenxe emva kwawo, emabi, enqinile; ema ecaleni lamanye amathokazi lawo elunxwemeni lomlambo; 41:4 asuka amathokazi amabi, anqinileyo, awadla amathokazi asixhenxe amahle, atyebileyo. Waphaphama uFaro. 41:5 Walala waphupha okwesibini. Wabona izikhwebu ezisixhenxe ziphuma mcingeni mnye, zityebile, zilungile. 41:6 Nanzo izikhwebu ezisixhenxe ezingcakacileyo, ezitshileyo lulophu lwasempumalanga, ziphuma emva kwazo; 41:7 zesuka izikhwebu ezingcakacileyo zaziginya izikhwebu zosixhenxe ezityebileyo, ezichumileyo. Wavuka uFaro, O, liphupha! 41:8 Kwathi kusasa, umoya wakhe wangqunga; wathumela, wazibiza zonke izazi zaseYiputa, izilumko zonke zakhona. UFaro wazixelela iphupha lakhe; akwabakho bani kuzo unokuwatyhila kuFaro. 41:9 Wathetha umphathi wabangcamli kuFaro, esithi, Ndiyasikhumbula namhlanje isono sam. 41:10 UFaro wayenoburhalarhume kubakhonzi bakhe, wandinikela elugcinweni endlwini yomthetheli wabasiki, mna lo, nomphathi waboji bezonka. 41:11 Saphupha iphupha ngabusuku bunye, mna naye; walowo waphupha ngokutyhilwa kwephupha lakhe. 41:12 Kwakukho kuthi umfana ongumHebhere isicaka somthetheli wabasiki, sasixelela, sasityhilela amaphupha ethu, samtyhilela elowo ngokwephupha lakhe. 41:13 Kwathi, ngokoko sisityhileleyo, kwaba njalo; mna wandibuyisela endaweni yam, omnye lowo wamxhoma. 41:14 UFaro wathumela, wambiza uYosefu. Bamgidimisa ukumkhupha emhadini; wazicheba, wanxiba ngubo zimbi, weza kuFaro. 41:15 Wathi uFaro kuYosefu, Ndiphuphe iphupha, akukho bani unokulityhila; mna ndive kusithiwa ngawe, uyaliva iphupha ulityhile. 41:16 UYosefu wamphendula uFaro, esithi, Akunam; uThixo uya kuphendula into yokumsindisa uFaro. 41:17 UFaro wathetha kuYosefu, wathi, Ephupheni lam, yabona, bendimi elunxwemeni lomlambo; 41:18 nanko kunyuka, kuphuma emlanjeni, amathokazi asixhenxe etyebile, emahle, esidla engcotyeni; 41:19 nanko, kunyuka kuphuma amanye amathokazi asixhenxe emva kwawo, ebhityile, emabi kakhulu, engamarhoqorhoqo, endingazanga ndibone anjalo kulo lonke ilizwe laseYiputa, ukuba mabi kwawo; 41:20 amathokazi angamarhoqorhoqo, amabi, awadla awokuqala amathokazi asixhenxe atyebileyo; 41:21 angena embilinini wawo akwazeka ukuba angenile embilinini wawo; imbonakalo yawo yambi, njengasekuqaleni. Ndaphaphama. 41:22 Ndabona ephupheni lam, izikhwebu ezisixhenxe ziphuma micingeni mnye, zichumile, zilungile; 41:23 nanzo, izikhwebu ezisixhenxe zishwabene, zingcakacile, zitshile lulophu lwasempumalanga, zihluma emva kwazo. 41:24 Zesuka izikhwebu ezingcakacileyo, zaziginya izikhwebu ezisixhenxe ezilungileyo. Ndathetha nezazi; akukho bani kuzo undixelelayo. 41:25 UYosefu wathi uFaro, Iphupha likaFaro linye; uThixo umxelele uFaro oko aya kukwenza. 41:26 Amathokazi asixhenxe alungileyo yiminyaka esixhenxe; izikhwebu ezisixhenxe ezilungileyo yiminyaka esixhenxe; iphupha eli linye. 41:27 Amathokazi asixhenxe angamarhoqorhoqo, amabi, anyukileyo aphuma emva kwalawo, yiminyaka esixhenxe; nezikhwebu ezisixhenxe ezinqinileyo, ezitshileyo lulophu lwasempumalanga, ziya kuba yiminyaka esixhenxe yendlala. 41:28 Lelo lizwi ndilithethileyo kuFaro lokuthi: oko aya kukwenza uThixo ukubonisile kuFaro. 41:29 Yabona, kuza iminyaka esixhenxe yendyebo enkulu ezweni lonke laseYiputa; 41:30 ze kuvele iminyaka esixhenxe yendlala emva kwaleyo, ilityalwe yonke indyebo ezweni laseYiputa, indlala iligqibe ilizwe; 41:31 ingaziwa indyebo elizweni, ngenxa yaloo iya kubakho emva kwayo, kuba iya kuba nzima kunene. 41:32 Ukuphindwa kabini kwephupha elo kuFaro kukuqiniswa kwayo le ndawo nguThixo; uya kukhawuleza uThixo ukuyenza. 41:33 Ngoko uFaro makakhangele indoda eyingqondi, esisilumko, ayimise phezu kwelizwe laseYiputa. 41:34 Makenze le nto uFaro, alimisele abaveleli ilizwe, athabathe isihlanu selizwe laseYiputa ngeminyaka yosixhenxe yendyebo. 41:35 Mababuthe konke ukudla kwaloo minyaka ilungileyo izayo, bafumbe ingqolowa phantsi kwesandla sikaFaro, ibe kukudla emizini, bayigcine; 41:36 oko kudla kube yinto ebekelwe ilizwe iminyaka yosixhenxe yendlala, eya kubakho ezweni laseYiputa, lingatshabalali ilizwe yindlala. 41:37 Lalunga elo zwi emehlweni kaFaro nasemehlweni abo bonke abakhonzi bakhe. 41:38 UFaro wathi kubakhonzi bakhe, Sinokumfumana na umntu onje, onoMoya kaThixo? 41:39 UFaro wathi kuYosefu, Ekubeni uThixo ekwazisile konke oku, akukho bani uyingqondi, usisilumko, njengawe. 41:40 Uya kuba phezu kwendlu yam wena, bawuthobele umlomo wakho bonke abantu bam; kusetroneni yodwa endiya kuba mkhulu kuwe. 41:41 UFaro wathi kuYosefu, Khangela, ndikumise phezu kwalo lonke ilizwe laseYiputa. 41:42 Wawukhulula uFaro umsesane wakhe esandleni sakhe, wawufaka esandleni sikaYosefu, wamambathisa iingubo zelinen ecikizekileyo, wanxiba umxokelelwane wegolide entanyeni yakhe. 41:43 Wamkhwelisa enqwelweni yesibini abenayo, kwamenyezwa phambi kwakhe, kwathiwa, Guqani! Wammisa phezu kwalo lonke ilizwe laseYiputa. 41:44 Wathi uFaro kuYosefu, NdinguFaro; ngaphandle kwakho, akukho bani uya kuphakamisa sandla sakhe, nalunyawo lwakhe, ezweni lonke laseYiputa. 41:45 UFaro wamthiya uYosefu igama lokuba nguTsafenati-paneha, wamnika uAzenati, intombi kaPotifera, umbingeleli waseOn, ukuba abe ngumkakhe. Waphuma uYosefu, walihamba ilizwe laseYiputa. 41:46 UYosefu wayeminyaka imashumi mathathu ezelwe, ukuma kwakhe phambi koFaro, ukumkani waseYiputa; waphuma uYosefu ebusweni bukaFaro, walicanda lonke ilizwe laseYiputa. 41:47 Umhlaba wavelisa ngendiphane ngeminyaka esixhenxe yendyebo. 41:48 Wakubutha konke ukudla kweminyaka esixhenxe ebikho ezweni laseYiputa, wakubeka ukudla kuyo imizi; ukudla kwamasimi abewungqongile umzi, wakubeka phakathi kwawo. 41:49 UYosefu wayifumba ingqolowa yanjengentlabathi yolwandle, yaninzi kunene, wada wayeka ukubala, kuba ibingenakubalwa. 41:50 UYosefu wazala oonyana bababini, wabazalelwa nguAzenati, intombi kaPotifera, umbingeleli waseOn, ingekafiki iminyaka yendlala. 41:51 UYosefu wamthiya owamazibulo igama elinguManase; ngokuba wathi, UThixo undenze ndakulibala konke ukwaphuka kwam, nayo yonke indlu kabawo. 41:52 Owesibini wamthiya igama elinguEfrayim; ngokuba wathi, UThixo undiqhamisile ezweni leentsizi zam. 41:53 Yaphela ke iminyaka yosixhenxe yendyebo ebisezweni laseYiputa. 41:54 Yaqala ukufika iminyaka yosixhenxe yendlala, njengoko wayekuthethile uYosefu. Yabakho indlala kumazwe onke; ke ezweni lonke laseYiputa kwakukho isonka. 41:55 Lonke ilizwe laseYiputa laba nendlala; abantu bakhalela isonka kuFaro; wathi uFaro kuwo onke amaYiputa, Yiyani kuYosefu; athe wakuthetha kuni nize nikwenze. 41:56 Indlala yaba sezweni lonke; uYosefu wazivula zonke izindlu ezinokudla, wathengisa ngengqolowa kumaYiputa; kuba indlala yaba namandla ezweni laseYiputa. 41:57 Lesuka ilizwe liphela, leza kuthenga ingqolowa kuYosefu eYiputa, kuba indlala ibinamandla kulo lonke.

Anaphulaphula; yabonani ke, igazi lakhe liyabizwa. 42:23 Babengazi bona ukuba uYosefu uyeva, kuba kwakumi umkhumshi phakathi kwabo. 42:24 Wathi guququ, walila; wabuya weza kubo, wathetha nabo, wamthabatha uSimon kubo, wamkhonkxa bekhangele. 42:25 Wawisa umthetho uYosefu wokuba zizaliswe iingxowa zabo ngengqolowa, imali yabo ibuyiselwe kulowo nalowo engxoweni yakhe, banikwe nomphako wendlela; kwenjiwa njalo ke kubo. 42:26 Bawabopha ingqolowa amaesile abo, bemka ke apho. 42:27 Uthe ke omnye akuyivula ingxowa yakhe, ukuba aphe iesile lakhe iindiza apho balalisa khona, wayibona imali yakhe, esemlonyeni wengxowa yakhe. 42:28 Wathi kubazalwana bakhe, Ibuyisiwe imali yam; nantsi ikho nokubakho engxoweni yam. Baphela amandla, bakhangelana begubha, bathi, Yintoni na le ayenzileyo uThixo kuthi? 42:29 Bafika kuYakobi uyise ezweni lakwaKanan, bamxelela yonke into ebahleleyo, besithi, 42:30 Indoda, inkosi yelo zwe, yathetha nathi kalukhuni, yathi siziintlola zelo zwe. 42:31 Sathi kuyo, Sinyanisile; 42:32 asizizo iintlola, singabazalwana abalishumi elinababini, oonyana bakabawo; omnye akakho, omncinane ukubawo namhla, ezweni lakwaKanan. 42:33 Indoda leyo, inkosi yelo zwe, yathi kuthi, Ndiya kwazi ngale ndawo ukuba ninyanisile: shiyani abe mnye umzalwana wenu kum apha, niphathele izindlu zenu ukudla ngenxa yendlala, nihambe; 42:34 nimzise umninawa wenu omncinane kum, ndize ndazi ukuba ninyanisile, anizizo iintlola; ndimnikele kuni umzalwana wenu, nirhwebe ezweni apha. 42:35 Kwathi, bakukhuphela iingxowa zabo, babona isiqhuma semali salowo nalowo engxoweni yakhe; bakuzibona iziqhuma zabo zemali boyika, bona noyise. 42:36 Wathi kubo uYakobi uyise, Nindihluthe abantwana; uYosefu akakho, uSimon akakho, niza kuthabatha noBhenjamin; zikhwele kum zonke ezo zinto. 42:37 Wathi uRubhen kuyise, Babulale bobabini oonyana bam, ukuba andithanga ndimzise kuwe; mnikele esandleni sam, ndombuyisela kuwe mna. 42:38 Wathi yena, Unyana wam akasayi kuhla nani; ngokuba ufile umkhuluwa wakhe, yena usele yedwa. Ukuba uthe wahlelwa yingozi endleleni eniyihambayo, izimvi zam nozithobela kwelabafileyo ndinesingqala.

43:1 Indlala yayinzima kwelo zwe. 43:2 Kwathi, bakuba begqibile ukuyidla ingqolowa ababeze nayo bevela eYiputa, wathi uyise kubo, Buyani niye kusithengela intwana yokudla. 43:3 Wathi uYuda kuye, Indoda leyo yaqononondisa kuthi, yathi, Aniyi kububona ubuso bam, engabangakho nani umninawa wenu. 43:4 Ukuba uthe wamthuma umninawa wethu nathi, sohla siye kukuthengela ukudla. 43:5 Ukuba akuthanga umthume, asiyi kuhla; kuba indoda leyo yathi kuthi, Aniyi kububona ubuso bam, engabangakho nani umninawa wenu. 43:6 USirayeli wathi, Yini na ukuba nindenzele ububi, niyixelele indoda leyo ukuthi, nisenomninawa? 43:7 Bathi, Indoda leyo yabuza kunene ngathi nangemizalwana yethu, isithi, Usaphilile na uyihlo? Nisenomninawa na? Sayixelela ngokwaloo mazwi. Besisazi yini na ukuba ibiya kuthi, Yihlani nomninawa wenu? 43:8 UYuda wathi kuSirayeli uyise, Mthume nam umfana, sisuke sihambe, siphile, singafi thina, nawe, nabantwana bethu. 43:9 Mna ndiya kummela, wombiza esandleni sam; ukuba andithanga ndimzise kuwe, ndimbeke phambi kwakho, mandibe netyala kuwe yonke imihla yam. 43:10 Kuba, ukuba besingazilazilanga, inene ngesiba ngoku sesibuye okwesibini. 43:11 USirayeli uyise wathi kubo, Ukuba kunjalo okunene, yenzani ke oku: thabathani kwezinconywayo izinto zelizwe eli, nizifake ezingxoweni zenu, nihle niyisele indoda leyo umnikelo: intwana yamafutha aqholiweyo, nentwana yencindi yobusi, nentlaka emhlophe, nentlaka emnandi, neenkozo zepistasi, neeamangile. 43:12 Phathani enye imali esandleni senu; naloo mali yabuyiswayo emlonyeni weengxowa zenu, buyani nayo esandleni senu; mhlawumbi sisiphosiso. 43:13 Nomninawa wenu mthabatheni, ninduluke, nibuyele kwindoda leyo. 43:14 Ngamana uThixo uSomandla waniphatha ngemfesane phambi kwendoda leyo, ukuba inikhululele omnye umzalwana wenu lowo noBhenjamin. Mna, ukuba ndihluthiwe abantwana, ndihluthiwe. 43:15 Amadoda lawo awuthabatha loo mnikelo, neemali zombini aziphatha esandleni sawo, noBhenjamin, asuka ehla aya eYiputa, ema phambi koYosefu. 43:16 UYosefu wambona uBhenjamin enabo, wathi kumphathi wendlu yakhe, Wangenise loo madoda endlwini, uxhele, ulungise; kuba la madoda aya kudla nam emini enkulu. 43:17 Indoda leyo yenza njengoko watshoyo uYosefu; indoda yawangenisa amadoda endlwini kaYosefu. 43:18 Amadoda oyika, ngokuba engeniswe endlwini kaYosefu, athi, Kungenxa yemali eyayibuyiselwe ezingxoweni zethu ekuqaleni, le nto singeniswe apha; ukuze agaleleke phezu kwethu, asiwele, asithabathe sibe ngamakhoboka, kwanamaesile ethu. 43:19 Asondela kuloo ndoda iphethe indlu kaYosefu, athetha nayo emnyango wendlu, athi, Tarhu, nkosi! 43:20 Sehla okunene ekuqaleni, sisiza kuthenga ukudla. 43:21 Kwathi, sakufika endaweni yokulalisa, sazivula iingxowa zethu, kwavela imali yalowo nalowo emlonyeni wengxowa yakhe, imali yethu ngomlinganiso wayo. Sibuye nayo ke siyiphethe. 43:22 Nenye imali sihle seza nayo esandleni sethu, ukuba sithenge ukudla; asimazi oyifakileyo imali ezingxoweni zethu. 43:23 Yathi, Xolani, musani ukoyika; uThixo wenu, uThixo kayihlo, uninikile ubutyebi ezingxoweni zenu; imali yenu ndayamkela. Yabakhuphela uSimon. 43:24 Indoda leyo yawangenisa amadoda endlwini kaYosefu, yawanika amanzi, ahlamba iinyawo zawo; yawapha iindiza amaesile awo. 43:25 Umnikelo lowo awulungisela ukufika kukaYosefu emini enkulu; kuba ebeve kusithiwa aya kudla isonka khona. 43:26 Wangena uYosefu endlwini; amzisela endlwini umnikelo obusesandleni sawo, aqubuda kuye emhlabeni. 43:27 Wawabuza ukuphila kwawo, wathi, Uyihlo usaphilile na, ixhego enanithethe ngalo? Usadla ubomi na? 43:28 Athi, Usaphilile ubawo umkhonzi wakho, usadla ubomi. Bathoba baqubuda. 43:29 Wawaphakamisa amehlo akhe, wambona uBhenjamin umninawa wakhe, umntwana kanina, wathi, Nguye na lo umninawa wenu omncinane, enibe nithetha ngaye kum? Wathi, Ngamana uThixo wakubabala, nyana wam. 43:30 Wakhawuleza uYosefu; kuba wasikwa yimfesane ngenxa yomninawa wakhe, wafuna indawo angalilela kuyo, wangena engontsini, walila khona. 43:31 Waza wahlamba ubuso bakhe, waphuma ezibambile, wathi, Bekani isonka. 43:32 Bambekela yedwa, bababekela bodwa bona, bawabekela odwa amaYiputa abesidla naye; kuba amaYiputa akanakudla sonka namaHebhere; kuba lisikizi elo kumaYiputa. 43:33 Bhalala phantsi phambi kwakhe, owamazibulo ngokobuzibulo bakhe, omncinane ngokobuncinane bakhe. Amadoda akhangelana ethe manga. 43:34 Aselwa izabelo ezisuka phambi kwakhe; ke isabelo sikaBhenjamin saba sikhulu kahlanu kwizabelo zabo bonke bephela. Basela, baba mnandi benaye.

IGenesis 44

44:1 Wamwisela umthetho umphathi wendlu, esithi, Zizalise iingxowa zala madoda ngokudla, njengoko zinako ukukhongozela, uyibeke imali yalowo nalowo emlonyeni wengxowa yakhe; 44:2 uyibeke indebe yam, indebe yesilivere, emlonyeni wengxowa yomncinane, nemali yengqolowa yakhe. Wenza ke ngokwelizwi likaYosefu abelithethile. 44:3 Kwakuthi qhiphu ukusa, andululwa loo madoda, wona namaesile awo. 44:4 Akubona ukuba aphumile emzini, engekayi kude, wathi uYosefu kumphathi wendlu yakhe, Suka, uwasukele laa madoda; wakuwafumana uze uthi kuwo, Yini na ukuba niphindezele okulungileyo ngokubi? 44:5 Le nto asiyile na inkosi yam isela ngayo, ihlabe nezihlabo ngayo? Yinto embi le nto niyenzileyo. 44:6 Wawafumana, wathetha kuwo loo mazwi. 44:7 Athi kuye, Yini na ukuba inkosi yam ithethe ngokwaloo mazwi? Makube lee kubakhonzi bakho ukwenza ngokwelo lizwi. 44:8 Uyabona, imali esayifumanayo emlonyeni weengxowa zethu, sayibuyisela kuwe, sivela ezweni lakwaKanan. Singathini na ke ukuba endlwini yenkosi yakho isilivere nokuba yigolide? 44:9 Osukuba ifunyenwe kuye phakathi kwabakhonzi bakhe, makafe; kananjalo thina sibe ngamakhoboka enkosini yam. 44:10 Wathi, Makube njengokwamazwi enu; ke ngoko osukuba ifunyenwe kuye, woba sisicaka sam, ke nina noba msulwa. 44:11 Bakhawuleza, bathula elowo ingxowa yakhe, bayibeka emhlabeni, bavula elowo ingxowa yakhe. 44:12 Wagquthagqutha, eqalela komkhulu, egqibela komncinane; yafunyanwa indebe engxoweni kaBhenjamin. 44:13 Bazikrazula iingubo zabo, babopha elowo iesile lakhe, babuyela kuloo mzi. 44:14 Wafika uYuda nabazalwana bakhe endlwini kaYosefu; ubesekhona yena. Bawa phambi kwakhe emhlabeni. 44:15 UYosefu wathi kubo, Sisenzo sini na esi nisenzileyo? Beningazi na ukuba indoda enjengam nje ibingahlaba izihlabo? 44:16 UYuda wathi, Siya kuthini na enkosini yam? Siya kuthetha ntoni na? Siya kuzihlamba njani na? UThixo ubufumene ubugwenxa babakhonzi bakho; yabona, singabakhonzi benkosi yam, thina aba, nalowa indebe ifunyenwe esandleni sakhe. 44:17 Wathi, Makube lee kum ukwenza loo nto; indoda efunyenwe esandleni sayo indebe, yiyo eya kuba sisicaka kum; ke nina nyukani nixolile, niye kuyihlo. 44:18 UYuda wasondela kuye, wathi, Tarhu, nkosi yam! Makhe athethe ilizwi umkhonzi wakho ezindlebeni zinkosi yam; mawungavuthi umsindo wakho ngakumkhonzi wakho, ngokuba ungangoFaro wena. 44:19 Yababuza inkosi yam abakhonzi bayo, isithi, Ninoyihlo na? Ninomninawa na? 44:20 Sathi thina enkosini yam, Sinobawo ixhego, nomntwana wobuxhego bakhe omncinane; umkhuluwa wakhe wafa, yena usele yedwa kunina, uyise uyamthanda. 44:21 Wathi ke wena kubakhonzi bakho, Yihlani naye eze kum, ndiwamise amehlo am kuye. 44:22 Sathi thina kwinkosi yam, Umfana lowo akanako ukumshiya uyise; emshiyile, uyise angafa. 44:23 Wathi wena kubakhonzi bakho, Ukuba umninawa wenu omncinane akathanga ehle nani, aniyi kubuya nibubone ubuso bam. 44:24 Kwathi, xenikweni senyukayo saya kumkhonzi wakho ongubawo, samxelela amazwi enkosi yam. 44:25 Wathi ubawo, Buyani niye kusithengela intwana yokudla. 44:26 Sathi, Asinakuhla. Ukuba umninawa wethu omncinane unathi, sohla; kuba asinakububona ubuso bendoda leyo, engenathi umninawa wethu omncinane. 44:27 Wathi ubawo umkhonzi wakho kuthi, Niyazi nina, ukuba umkam wandizalela oonyana ababini. 44:28 Omnye waphuma kum, ndathi, Inene, uqwengiwe; andimbonanga unangoku. 44:29 Nimthabatha nje nalo ebusweni bam, ethe wahlelwa yingozi, nozihlisela izimvi zam zinobubi kwelabafileyo. 44:30 Ngoko ke, ukuba ndithe ndafike kubawo umkhonzi wakho, engenathi umfana (umphefumlo wakhe ubotshwe nomphefumlo wakhe nje), 44:31 kothi, akubona ukuba akakho umfana, afe, nabakhonzi bakho bahlise izimvi zomkhonzi wakho ubawo enesingqala, ziye kwelabafileyo. 44:32 Kuba umkhonzi wakho lo wammela umfana lowo kubawo, ndisithi, Ukuba andithanga ndimzise kuwe, ndoba netyala kubawo yonke imihla yam. 44:33 Ngoko makahlale umkhonzi wakho lo esikhundleni somfana, ndibe likhoboka enkosini yam mna; umfana anyuke nabakhuluwa bakhe. 44:34 Kuba ndingathini na ukunyuka ndiye kubawo, engenam umfana? hleze ndibubone ububi obomfumana ubawo.

IGenesis 45

45:1 UYosefu akabanga nakuzibamba phambi kwabo bonke ababemi ngakuye. Wadanduluka wathi, Khuphani bonke abantu, bemke kum. Akwabakho mntu umi ngakuye ekuzaziseni kukaYosefu kubazalwana bakhe. 45:2 Wasibeka isililo; eva amaYiputa, yeva nendlu kaFaro. 45:3 Wathi uYosefu kubazalwana bakhe, NdinguYosefu; usaphilile na ubawo? Ababa nako ukumphendula abazalwana bakhe; kuba bakhwankqiswa phambi kwakhe. 45:4 Wathi, uYosefu kubazalwana bakhe, Khanisondele kum apha. Basondela. Wathi, NdinguYosefu, umzalwana wenu, enathengisayo ngaye eYiputa. 45:5 Ngoko musani ukuba buhlungu, ningaziqumbeli, ukuba nathengisa ngam apha; kuba uThixo wandithuma phambi kwenu ukuze ndisindise abantu. 45:6 Kuba ngoku iminyaka mibini indlala ikho phakathi kwelizwe; isemihlanu iminyaka ezayo, ekungayi kubakho kulima nakuvuna ngayo. 45:7 UThixo undithume phambi kwenu, ukuba ndinimisele amasalela ezweni, ukuba ndisindise ubomi benu, ibe kukusinda okukhulu. 45:8 Ngoko ke asinini abandithume apha, nguThixo; wandenza uyise kuFaro, nenkosi phezu kwayo yonke indlu yakhe, nomlawuli ezweni lonke laseYiputa. 45:9 Khawulezani, ninyuke niye kubawo, nithi kuye, Utsho unyana wakho uYosefu ukuthi, UThixo undenze inkosi kuyo yonke iYiputa; yihla uze kum, musa ukulibala. 45:10 Wohlala ezweni laseGoshen, ube kufuphi kum, wena, noonyana bakho, noonyana boonyana bakho, nempahla yakho emfutshane, neenkomo zakho, nezinto zonke onazo; 45:11 ndikondle khona, kuba isaya kuba mihlanu iminyaka yendlala; hleze uhlwempuzeke wena, nendlu yakho, nento yonke onayo. 45:12 Yabonani, amehlo enu ayabona, namehlo omninawa wam uBhenjamin, ukuba ngumlomo wam lo uthethayo kuni. 45:13 Nize nimxelele ubawo lonke uzuko lwam eYiputa, nezinto zonke enizibonileyo, nikhawuleze nihle nobawo, eze apha. 45:14 Wawa entanyeni kaBhenjamin, umninawa wakhe, walila; uBhenjamin walila entanyeni yakhe. 45:15 Wabanga bonke abazalwana bakhe, walila phezu kwabo. Emveni koko, abazalwana bakhe bathetha naye. 45:16 Lavakala izwi endlwini kaFaro, lisithi, Bafikele abazalwana bakaYosefu. Kwalunga oko emehlweni kaFaro, nasemehlweni abakhonzi bakhe. 45:17 Wathi uFaro kuYosefu, Yithi kubazalwana bakho, Yenzani oku: bophani amaqegu enu, nihambe niye ezweni lakwaKanan, 45:18 nithabathe uyihlo nezindlu zenu, nise kum apha. Ndoninika izinto ezilungileyo zelizwe laseYiputa, nidle ukutyeba kwelizwe. 45:19 Wena ke uwiselwe umthetho, yenzani oku; bathabatheleni abantwana benu, nabafazi benu, iinqwelo ezweni laseYiputa, nithwale uyihlo, nize. 45:20 Iliso lenu malingabi nanceba empahleni yenu, kuba zonke izinto ezilungileyo zelizwe lonke laseYiputa zezenu. 45:21 Benjenjalo ke oonyana bakaSirayeli. UYosefu wabanika iinqwelo ngokomthetho kaFaro; wabanika nomphako wendlela. 45:22 Wabanika bonke elowo iingubo zokukhululana. Wamnika uBhenjamin iisilivere ezimakhulu mathathu, neengubo ezintlanu zokukhululana. 45:23 Kuyise wathumela ezilolu hlobo: amaesile alishumi, ethwele izinto ezilungileyo zaseYiputa, neemazi zamaesile ezilishumi, zithwele ingqolowa, nesonka, nomphako kayise wendlela. 45:24 Wabandulula ke abazalwana bakhe, bahamba; wathi kubo, Ize ningaxabani endleleni. 45:25 Benyuka, bemke ke eYiputa, bafika ezweni lakwaKanan kuYakobi uyise. 45:26 Bamxelela besithi, UYosefu usahleli; ewe, ungumphathi welizwe lonke laseYiputa. Yaqoba intliziyo yakhe, kuba ebengakholwa ngabo. 45:27 Bawathetha kuye onke amazwi kaYosefu, abewathethile kubo. Wazibona iinqwelo abezithumele uYosefu, ukuba zimthwale; waza waphila umoya kaYakobi uyise. 45:28 Wathi uSirayeli, Kwanele. UYosefu unyana wam usahleli. Ndiya kuya ndimbone, ndingekafi.

Bathi kuFaro, Abakhonzi bakho ngabafuyi bempahla emfutshane, thina aba kwanoobawo bethu. 47:4 Babuya bathi kuFaro, Siphambukele kweli lizwe, kuba akukho tyani bampahla imfutshane abanayo abakhonzi bakho, kuba inzima indlala ezweni lakwaKanan; ngoko ke mabakhe bahlale ezweni laseGoshen abakhonzi bakho. 47:5 Wathetha uFaro kuYosefu, wathi, Uyihlo nabazalwana bakho bafikile kuwe. 47:6 Ilizwe laseYiputa liphambi kwakho: uyihlo nabazalwana bakho bahlalise kweyona ndawo intle yelizwe; mabahlale ezweni laseGoshen. Ukuba uyazi ukuba kukho kuwo amadoda aziinkunkqele emsebenzini, wamise abe ngabaphathi bemfuyo endinayo. 47:7 UYosefu wamngenisa uYakobi uyise, wammisa phambi koFaro. UYakobi wamsikelela uFaro. 47:8 UFaro wathi kuYakobi, Mingaphi na iminyaka yobudala bakho? 47:9 Wathi uYakobi kuFaro, Imihla yeminyaka yokuba lundwendwe kwam emhlabeni yiminyaka elikhulu elinamanci mathathu; imbalwa, imibi, imihla yeminyaka yobudala bam; ayifikanga emihleni yeminyaka yobudala boobawo, emihleni yokuba lundwendwe kwabo emhlabeni. 47:10 UYakobi wamsikela ke uFaro; waphuma, wemka ebusweni bukaFaro. 47:11 UYosefu wambeka uyise nabazalwana bakhe ezweni laseYiputa, wabanika indawo yokuma kweyona ndawo intle yelizwe, ezweni laseRameses, ngokomthetho kaFaro. 47:12 UYosefu wamondla uyise, nabazalwana bakhe, nendlu yonke kayise, ngesonka, ngangokuswela kosapho lwabo. 47:13 Bekungekho kudla kulo lonke ilizwe; kuba ibinzima kunene indlala; ilizwe laseYiputa nelizwe lakwaKanan laphelelwa ngamandla ngenxa yendlala. 47:14 Wayihlanganisa uYosefu yonke imali eyafunyanwayo ezweni laseYiputa nasezweni lakwaKanan, yengqolowa ababeyithenga; wayingenisa uYosefu imali endlwini kaFaro. 47:15 Yaphela imali ezweni laseYiputa nasezweni lakwaKanan. Onke amaYiputa eza kuYosefu, esithi, Sinike ukudla. Yini na ukuba sife phambi kwakho, kuba imali iphelile. 47:16 Wathi uYosefu, Rholani imfuyo yenu; ndoninika ngemfuyo yenu, ukuba imali iphelile. 47:17 Ayizisa imfuyo yawo kuYosefu; uYosefu wawanika ukudla ngamahashe, nangemfuyo eyimpahla emfutshane, nangemfuyo eziinkomo, nangamaesile; wawapha ukudla endaweni yayo yonke imfuyo yawo ngaloo mnyaka. 47:18 Waphela ke loo mnyaka. Eza kuye ngomnyaka wesibini, athi kuye, Asinakukufihla enkosini yam, ukuba imali nemfuyo eziinkomo iphelele enkosini yam; akusalanga nto kuthi phambi kwenkosi yam, yimizimba yethu nimihlaba yethu yodwa kuphela. 47:19 Yini na ukuba sife phambi kwakho, thina aba nomhlaba wethu. Sithenge thina nomhlaba wethu ngokudla, ukuze thina nomhlaba wethu sibe ngabakhonzi bakaFaro. Sinike imbewu, ukuze siphile, singafi, kube senkangala. 47:20 UYosefu wawuthengela uFaro wonke umhlaba waseYiputa; kuba amaYiputa athengisa elowo ngentsimi yakhe, kuba indlala yabe inzima phezu kwawo; umhlaba ke waba ngokaFaro. 47:21 Abantu wabafudusela emizini, kwathabathela ekupheleni komnye umda waseYiputa kwesa ekupheleni komnye. 47:22 Ngumhlaba wababingeleli wodwa angawuthenganga; kuba ababingeleli babenesabelo abasimiselweyo esivela kuFaro, besidla isabelo eso simiselweyo, babesinikwe nguFaro; ngenxa yoko bona abathengisanga ngomhlaba wabo. 47:23 Wathi uYosefu ebantwini, Yabonani, namhla nina nomhlaba wenu ndinithengele uFaro; nantsi ke imbewu yenu, hlwayelani umhlaba. 47:24 Nothi kwinto eniyizuzileyo, nimnike uFaro esesihlanu isahlulo, ezine izahlulo zibe zezenu, zibe yimbewu yentsimi, nezokudliwa nini nangabasezindlwini zenu, nezokudliwa lusapho lwenu. 47:25 Bathi, Usisindisile; mayisibabale inkosi yam, soba ngabakhonzi kuFaro. 47:26 UYosefu wayimisa loo nto yaba ngummiselo unanamhla phezu komhlaba waseYiputa, ukuba esesihlanu isahlulo sibe sesikaFaro; ngumhlaba wababingeleli wodwa ongabanga ngokaFaro. 47:27 Wahlala uSirayeli ezweni laseYiputa, ezweni laseGoshen; baqiniseka ukuma khona, baqhama, banda kunene. 47:28 UYakobi wadla ubomi ezweni laseYiputa iminyaka elishumi elinesixhenxe; imihla kaYakobi, iminyaka yobudala bakhe, yaba yiminyaka elikhulu elinamanci amane, aneminyaka esixhenxe. 47:29 Yasondela imihla kaSirayeli yokuba afe; wabiza unyana wakhe uYosefu, wathi kuye, Ukuba kaloku ndibabalwe nguwe, khawubeke isandla sakho phantsi kwethanga lam, undenzele inceba nenyaniso. Uze ungakhe undingcwabe eYiputa. 47:30 Ke ndiya kulala koobawo; uze undisuse eYiputa, undingcwabe engcwabeni labo. Wathi ke yena, Ndiya kwenza ngokwelizwi lakho. 47:31 Wathi, Funga; wafunga ke. Waqubuda uSirayeli phezu kwentloko yesingqengqelo.

Wazomeleza uSirayeli, wavuka, wahlala esingqengqelweni. 48:3 UYakobi wathi uYosefu, uThixo uSomandla wabonakala kum ndiseLuzi, ezweni lakwaKanan, wandisikelela. 48:4 Wathi kum, Yabona, ndiya kukuqhamisa, ndikwandise, ndikwenze isikhungu sezizwe; eli lizwe ndilinike imbewu yakho emva kwakho, libe lelakho ngonaphakade. 48:5 Ngako oko oonyana bakho ababini, owabazalelwayo ezweni laseYiputa, ndingekafiki kuwe eYiputa, ngabam; uEfrayim noManase baya kuba ngabam; njengoRubhen noSimon. 48:6 Ke othe wabazala emva kwabo, baya kuba ngabakho; baya kubizwa ngokwegama labazalwana babo elifeni labo. 48:7 Ekumkeni kwam mna ePadan, ndafelwa nguRakeli ezweni lakwaKanan endleleni, ndakubona ukuba ndimganyana ukuze kufikwe e-Efrata; ndamngcwabela khona endleleni yase-Efrata eyiBhetelehem. 48:8 USirayeli wababona oonyana bakaYosefu, wathi, Ngoobani na aba? 48:9 Wathi uYosefu kuyise, Ngoonyana bam endibaphiwe nguThixo apha. Wathi yena, Khawubasondeze kum, ndibasikelele. 48:10 Ke amehlo kaSirayeli ayeselenorhatyazo kukwaluphala, engasaboni. Wabasondeza ke kuye, wabanga, wabawola. 48:11 USirayeli wathi uYosefu, Ukubona ubuso bakho bendingasakucingi; nanku uThixo endibonise nembewu yakho. 48:12 UYosefu wabakhupha phakathi kwamadolo akhe, waqubuda ngobuso bakhe emhlabeni. 48:13 UYosefu wabathabatha bobabini, uEfrayim ngesokunene kwesasekhohlo sikaSirayeli, noManase ngesokhohlo kwesokunene sikaSirayeli, wabasondeza kuye. 48:14 USirayeli wasolula esokunene sakhe, wasibeka entloko kuEfrayim engomncinane, nesokhohlo sakhe entloko kuManase, ezenjenjalo izandla zakhe ngengqiqo; ngokuba uManase ebengowamazibulo. 48:15 Wamsikelela uYosefu, wathi, Ngamana uThixo, abahamba phambi kwakhe oobawo uAbraham noIsake, owandondla kwasekuveleni kwam kwada kwanamhla, osisithunywa esindikhululeyo ebubini bonke, 48:16 angabasikelela abafana, lithi igama lam negama loobawo libizwe phezu kwabo, uAbraham noIsake, bande, babe baninzi ehlabathini. 48:17 Wabona uYosefu ukuba uyise usibeke isandla sakhe sokunene entloko kuEfrayim, kwakubi emehlweni akhe; wasibamba isandla sikayise wasishenxisa entlokweni kaEfrayim, esisa entlokweni kaManase. 48:18 Wathi uYosefu kuyise, Makungabi njalo, bawo, kuba ngulo owamazibulo; beka esokunene entlokweni yakhe. 48:19 Akavuma uyise, wathi, Ndiyazi, nyana wam, ndiyazi; naye uya kuba sisizwe, naye uya kuba mkhulu; kodwa umninawa wakhe uya kuba mkhulu kuye, nembewu yakhe ibe ziintlanga ezininzi. 48:20 Wabasikelela ngaloo mini, esithi, Ngawe uya kusikelela uSirayeli, esithi, Ngamana uThixo wakwenza njengoEfrayim nanjengoManase. Wambeka ke uEfrayim phambi koManase. 48:21 USirayeli wathi kuYosefu, Yabona, ndiza kufa; uThixo uya kuba nani, anibuyisele ezweni looyihlo. 48:22 Mna ndikunike isiqwenga somhlaba ngaphezu kwabazalwana bakho, eso ndasithimbayo esandleni sama-Amori, ngekrele lam nangesaphetha sam.

Ndiya kubachithachitha kwaYakobi, Ndibaphangalalise kwaSirayeli. 49:8 Yuda, abazalwana bakho baya kukudumisa, Isandla sakho sibe sentanyeni yeentshaba zakho; Baya kuqubuda kuwe oonyana bakayihlo. 49:9 Lithole lengonyama uYuda; Usuke ekuqwengeni, nyana wam, Waguqa, wabuthuma njengengonyama, Njengengonyamakazi; ngubani na oya kumvusa? 49:10 Intonga ayiyi kumka kuYuda, Intonga yommisi-mthetho ayiyi kumka phakathi kweenyawo zakhe, Ade afike uShilo, Zimlulamele izizwe. 49:11 Ngukhuleka emdiliyeni imazi yakhe ye-esile, Ukhuleka kowohlobo inkonyana yakhe ye-esile; uhlamba ngewayini isambatho sakhe, Ngegazi lediliya ingubo yakhe; 49:12 Umehlo abomvu yiwayini, Umazinyo amhlophe ngamasi. 49:13 UZebhulon uya kuma ngasezibukweni lolwandle, 49:14 Ewe, ngasezibukweni leenqanawa, Icala lakhe lisingise eTsidon. UIsakare yinyathi ye-esile, Ulala phakathi kweentlanti. 49:15 Wakubona ukuphumla ukuba kulungile, Nelizwe ukuba limnandi; Igxalaba lakhe walithobela ukuthwala, waba ngumsebenzi ofakwa uviko. 49:16 UDan uya kugweba phakathi kwabantu bakowabo, Njengezinye izizwe zakwaSirayeli. 49:17 UDan makabe yinyoka ngasendleleni, Irhamba ngasemendweni, Eliluma izithende zehashe, Awe ngomva olikhweleyo. 49:18 Usindiso lwakho, Yehova, ndiluthembile. 49:19 UGadi ungenelwa ngamatutu, Ke yena uwangenela ezithendeni. 49:20 KuAshere kuphuma amafutha, isonka sakhe eso; Yena unika izinto eziyolisa ookumkani. 49:21 UNafetali yimazi yexhama ekhululweyo, ukhupha amazwi amahle. 49:22 NguGatya lomthi oqhamayo uYosefu, UGatya lomthi oqhamayo ngasemthonjeni, Omasebe aqabele eludongeni. 49:23 UBamcubunga bamtola, Bamchasa abatoli; 49:24 USihlala sithe nkqi isaphetha sakhe, UMikhono yezandla zakhe inokusityeda, Ngezandla zembalasane kaYakobi, Khona apho akhoyo umalusi, ilitye likaSirayeli; 49:25 NgoThixo wooyihlo—akuncede, NgoSomandla—akusikelele, Ibe ziintsikelelo zamazulu ezivela phezulu, Iintsikelelo zamanzi enzonzobila alele ezantsi, Iintsikelelo zamabele, nezesizalo. 49:26 Iintsikelelo zikayihlo Zizigqithile iintsikelelo zomawokhulu, Zasa nasemdeni weentaba zanini; Mazibe sentloko kuYosefu, Ebuchotsheni bobalulweyo kubazalwana bakhe! 49:27 UBhenjamin yingcuka eqwengayo; Kusasa uya kudla okuphangiweyo, Ngokuhlwa uya kwaba okuthinjiweyo. 49:28 Bonke aba zizizwe zakwaSirayeli ezilishumi elinazibini; yiyo leyo into awayithethayo kubo uyise, wabasikelela; elowo ngokwentsikelelo yakhe wabasikelela. 49:29 Wabawisela umthetho, wathi kubo, Ndiza kuhlanganiselwa kwabakowethu; ndingcwabeni noobawo emqolombeni osentsimini kaEfron umHiti, 49:30 emqolombeni osentsimini yaseMakapela, ophambi kowakwaMamre, ezweni lakwaKanan, awawuthengayo uAbraham ndawonye nentsimi kuEfron umHiti, ukuba abe nendawo eyiyeyakhe yokungcwaba. 49:31 Bamngcwaba khona apho uAbraham noSara umkakhe; bamngcwaba khona apho uIsake noRebheka umkakhe; ndamngcwaba khona apho uLeya. 49:32 Yathengwa intsimi leyo nomqolomba okuyo koonyana bakaHeti. 49:33 Wagqiba ke uYakobi ukuyolela oonyana bakhe, wazifinyezela esingqengqelweni iinyawo zakhe, waphuma umphefumlo, wahlanganiselwa kwabakowabo.

Bamakhela ke uFaro imizi enoovimba, iPitom neRameses. 1:12 Okukhona babacinezelayo, kokukhona bandayo, kokukhona baphangalalayo; bakruquka ngabo oonyana bakaSirayeli. 1:13 AmaYiputa ke abakhonzisa oonyana bakaSirayeli ngokutyumzayo; 1:14 abenza bakrakra ubomi babo ngomsebenzi olukhuni, ngodaka nangezitena, nangeentlobo zonke zomsebenzi wasendle; yonke imisebenzi abasetyenziswa yona yayiyetyumzayo. 1:15 Ke kaloku ukumkani waseYiputa wathetha kubazalisikazi abangamaHebherekazi, igama lomnye linguShifra, igama lomnye linguPuwa; 1:16 wathi, Ekuzaliseni kwenu amaHebherekazi, khangelani xa azalayo: ukuba ithe yayinkwenkwe, noyibulala; ukuba ithe yayintombi, yodla ubomi. 1:17 Abazalisikazi boyika uThixo, abenza ngoko wathetha ngako kubo ukumkani waseYiputa, bawasindisa amakhwenkwe. 1:18 Wababiza ukumkani waseYiputa abazalisikazi, wathi kubo, Kungani na ukuba nenze le nto yokuwasindisa amakhwenkwe? 1:19 Bathi abazalisikazi kuFaro, AmaHebherekazi akanjengabafazi bamaYiputa, kuba omelele; azala engekangeni kuwo umzalisikazi. 1:20 Ngoko uThixo wabenzela okulungileyo abazalisikazi.

2:1 Kwaphuma umfo wendlu kaLevi, wazeka intombi yakwaLevi. 2:2 Wamitha umfazi lowo, wazala unyana; wambona ukuba mhle, wamfihla iinyanga ezintathu. 2:3 Wathi, akuba engasenako ukumfihla, wamthabathela umkhombe wemikhanzi, wawutyabeka ngebhitumene netywina, wamfaka kuwo umntwana, wawubeka engcotyeni, elunxwemeni lomlambo. 2:4 Udade wabo wema mgama, ukuze ayazi into eya kwenzeka kuye. 2:5 Yehla ke intombi kaFaro, isiya kuqubha emlanjeni; baye abakhonzazana bayo behamba ngasecaleni lomlambo. Yabona umkhombe engcotyeni phakathi, yathuma umkhonzazana wayo, ukuba aye kuwuthabatha. 2:6 Yawunqika, yambona umntwana; nantso inkwenkwana ilila. Yaba nofefe ngayo, yathi, Ngumntwana wamaHebhere lo. 2:7 Wathi udade wabo kwintombi kaFaro, Ndiye kukubizela na umfazi wamaHebhere onokwanyisa, akwanyisele umntwana? 2:8 Yathi intombi kaFaro kuye, Yiya. Yaya ke intombi leyo, yabiza unina womntwana. 2:9 Yathi intombi kaFaro kuye, Thabatha lo mntwana, umanyise; ndokunika umvuzo wakho mna. Umfazi lowo wamthabatha umntwana, wamanyisa. 2:10 Wakhula umntwana, wamsa ke kwintombi kaFaro, waba ngunyana wayo. Yamthiya igama elinguMoses, yathi, Ndamrhola emanzini. 2:11 Kwathi ke ngaloo mihla, akukhula uMoses, waphuma waya kubazalwana bakhe, ekhangela imithwalo yabo. Wabona umYiputa ebetha umHebhere wakubazalwana bakhe. 2:12 Wabhekabheka, wathi akuba engaboni mntu, wamthi qwaka umYiputa, wamselela entlabathini. 2:13 Waphuma ngemini yesibini; wabona amaHebhere emabini entlalana; wathi kowone omnye, Yini na ukuba umbethe ummelwane wakho? 2:14 Wathi yena, Umiswe ngubani na ukuba ube ngumthetheli nomgwebi phezu kwethu? Uza kundibulala na nam, usitsho nje, njengokuba umbulele umYiputa? Woyika uMoses, wathi, Mayibe le nto iyaziwa. 2:15 UFaro wayiva le nto, wafuna ukumbulala uMoses. Wabaleka uMoses, wemka kwaFaro, waya kuma ezweni lakwaMidiyan, wahlala phantsi ngasequleni. 2:16 Ke kaloku umbingeleli wakwaMidiyan wayeneentombi ezisixhenxe; zeza kukha amanzi, zayizalisa imikhumbi ukuba ziseze impahla emfutshane kayise. 2:17 Bafika abalusi, bazigxotha. Wesuka uMoses wazinceda, wayiseza impahla yazo emfutshane. 2:18 Zakufika kuRehuweli uyise, wathi, Nitheni na namhlanje ukuhle nifike? 2:19 Zathi, Sihlangulwe ngumYiputa esandleni sabalusi; kunjalo wasikhelela amanzi, wayiseza impahla emfutshane. 2:20 Wathi ezintombini zakhe, Uphi na? Nimshiyeleni na umntu lowo? Mbizeni, adle isonka. 2:21 Wakholwa uMoses kukuhlala naloo ndoda. Yamnika uMoses uTsipora, intombi yayo. 2:22 Yazala unyana, wamthiya igama elinguGershom, kuba ubesithi, Ndingumphambukeli ezweni lolunye uhlanga. 2:23 Kwathi emva kwaloo mihla mininzi wafa ukumkani waseYiputa. Bancwina oonyana bakaSirayeli ngenxa yomsebenzi, bakhala; kwenyuka ukuzibika kwabo, kwaya kuThixo, ngenxa yomsebenzi. 2:24 Wakuva uThixo ukugula kwabo, wawukhumbula uThixo umnqophiso wakhe noAbraham, noIsake, noYakobi. 2:25 UThixo wababona oonyana bakaSirayeli, wabazi uThixo.

Wathi uYitro kuMoses, Hamba ngoxolo. 4:19 UYehova wathi kuMoses kwaMidiyan, Hamba ubuyele eYiputa; kuba afile onke amadoda abezonda ubomi bakho. 4:20 UMoses wathabatha umkakhe noonyana bakhe, wabakhwelisa e-esileni, wabuyela ezweni laseYiputa; wayiphatha uMoses intonga kaThixo ngesandla sakhe. 4:21 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Ekuhambeni kwakho ubuyela eYiputa, uze ukhangele ukuba uzenze phambi koFaro zonke izimanga, endizibeke esandleni sakho. Ke mna ndiya kuyenza lukhuni intliziyo yakhe, angabandululi abantu. 4:22 Wothi kuFaro, Utsho uYehova ukuthi, Unyana wam wamazibulo nguSirayeli; 4:23 ndithi kuwe, Mndulule unyana wam lowo, andikhonze; walile nje ukumndulula, uyabona, ndombulala unyana wakho, amazibulo akho. 4:24 Kwathi, endleleni apho balalisa khona, uYehova wamhlangabeza, wafuna ukumbulala. 4:25 UTsipora wathabatha intshengece, wanqumla inyama yokwaluswa yonyana wakhe, wayiphosa ezinyaweni zakhe, wathi, Ungumyeni wamagazi kum. 4:26 Wamyeka ke. Watsho oko ukuthi, Ungumyeni wamagazi, ngenxa yolwaluko. 4:27 Wathi uYehova kuAron, Hamba uye kukhawulela uMoses entlango. Waya ke, wamhlangabeza entabeni kaThixo, wamanga. 4:28 UMoses wamxelela uAron onke amazwi kaYehova abemthume wona, nemiqondiso yonke abemwisele umthetho ngayo. 4:29 Wahamba uMoses noAron, bawahlanganisa onke amadoda amakhulu oonyana bakaSirayeli. 4:30 Wawathetha uAron onke amazwi abewathethile uYehova kuMoses, wayenza nemiqondiso phambi kwabantu. 4:31 Bakholwa abantu, beva ukuba uYehova ubavelele oonyana bakaSirayeli wazibona iintsizi zabo, bathoba baqubuda.

12:1 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses nakuAron ezweni laseYiputa, wathi, 12:2 Le nyanga kuni iyintloko yeenyanga; kuni yeyokuqala ezinyangeni zomnyaka. 12:3 Thethani kwibandla lonke lakwaSirayeli, nithi, Ngolweshumi usuku kule nyanga elowo makazithabathele ixhwane, ngokwenzindlu zooyise, ixhwane ngendlu. 12:4 Ukuba ithe indlu yancinane exhwaneni, makathabathe ixhwane yena enommelwane wakhe okufuphi nendlu yakhe, ngokwenani labantu; elowo ngangokokudla kwakhe nombalela exhwaneni. 12:5 Ixhwane lenu malibe liduna eligqibeleleyo, elimnyaka mnye; nolithabatha ezigusheni nokuba kusezibhokhweni. 12:6 Nize niligcine kude kube lusuku lweshumi elinesine lwale nyanga, silixhele ke sonke isikhungu sebandla lakwaSirayeli lakutshona ilanga; 12:7 bacaphule egazini, baliqabe emigubasini yomibini nasemqadini wezindlu eliya kudlelwa kuzo ngabo; 12:8 bayidle inyama ngobo busuku, yosiwe ngomlilo, inezonka ezingenagwele, bayidle nemithana ekrakra. 12:9 Musani ukudla ndawo ikrwada kuyo, nandawo ikuphekwa iphekwe ngamanzi; mayosiwe ngomlilo: intloko yalo namanqina alo nezibilini zalo. 12:10 Nize ningasalisi ndawo yalo kude kuse; okuseleyo kulo kwada kwasa nokutshisa ngomlilo. 12:11 Nize nenjenje ukulidla; nodla nibhinqile, nineembadada ezinyaweni zenu, ninentonga esandleni senu, nilidle buphuthuphuthu: leyo yipasika kuYehova. 12:12 Ndiya kucanda ezweni laseYiputa ngobu busuku, ndibethe onke amazibulo ezweni laseYiputa, ndithabathele emntwini ndise enkomeni, ndenze izigwebo koothixo bonke baseYiputa, mna Yehova. 12:13 Igazi elo loba ngumqondiso kuni ezindlwini enikuzo. Ndolibona igazi, ndigqithe kuni, singabikho kuni isibetho esonakalisayo, ekulibetheni kwam ilizwe laseYiputa. 12:14 Le mini yoba sisikhumbuzo kuni, niyenze umthendeleko kuYehova; ezizukulwaneni zenu niyenze ummiselo ongunaphakade. 12:15 Nodla izonka ezingenagwele iintsuku zibe sixhenxe; kwangosuku lokuqala nolisusa igwele ezindlwini zenu; kuba bonke abadla isonka esinegwele, kususela kolokuqala kude kube lusuku lwesixhenxe, bonqanyulwa bangabikho kwaSirayeli. 12:16 Ngomhla wokuqala kobakho intlanganiso engcwele, nangomhla wesixhenxe kobakho intlanganiso engcwele kuni. Akuyi kwenziwa msebenzi ngawo, ingengulowo wokudla komntu; nguwo wodwa eningazenzelayo. 12:17 Nize nigcine umthendeleko wezonka ezingenagwele; kuba kanye ngayo loo mini ndayikhupha imikhosi yenu ezweni laseYiputa; niwugcine loo mhla kwizizukulwana zenu, ube ngummiselo ongunaphakade. 12:18 Ngeyokuqala inyanga, ngosuku lweshumi elinesine enyangeni leyo, ngokuhlwa, nodla izonka ezingenagwele, kude kuse kusuku lwamashumi omabini analunye lwenyanga leyo, ngokuhlwa. 12:19 Ze kungafunyanwa gwele ezindlwini zenu iintsuku ezisixhenxe; kuba bonke abadla into enegwele bonqanyulwa bangabikho ebandleni lakwaSirayeli, nokuba ngumphambukeli, nokuba ngozalelwe kuloo ndawo. 12:20 Yonke into enegwele nize ningayidli; emakhayeni enu onke nodla izonka ezingenagwele. 12:21 Wawabiza uMoses onke amadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli, wathi kuwo, Hambani niye, nizithabathele ixhwane ngokwemizalwane yenu, nixhele ipasika. 12:22 Nithabathe isipha sehisope, nisithi nkxu egazini elisengqayini, niqabe emqadini nasemigubasini yomibini ngegazi elisengqayini; ke kuni ze kungaphumi mntu emnyango wendlu yakhe kude kuse. 12:23 UYehova uya kucanda, awabulale amaYiputa. Akulibona igazi emqadini nasemigubasini yomibini, wogqitha uYehova emnyango, angamvumeli umonakalisi ukuba angene ezindlwini zenu, abulale. 12:24 Woligcina elo zwi libe ngummiselo kuwe, nakoonyana bakho kude kuse ephakadeni. 12:25 Nothi, nakufika ezweni aya kuninika uYehova, njengoko watshoyo, niyigcine le nkonzo. 12:26 Kothi, xa bathe oonyana benu kuni, Iyintoni na le nkonzo kuni? 12:27 nithi ke, Ngumbingelelo wepasika kuYehova, owagqitha ezindlwini zoonyana bakaSirayeli eYiputa; ekubulaleni kwakhe amaYiputa, wazihlangula izindlu zethu. 12:28 Bathoba abantu, baqubuda. Bahamba oonyana bakaSirayeli, baya kwenza; njengoko uYehova wabawisela umthetho uMoses noAron, benjenjalo. 12:29 Kwathi ke phakathi kobusuku, uYehova wawabulala onke amazibulo ezweni laseYiputa, kwathabathela kowamazibulo kaFaro ohleliyo etroneni yakhe, kwasa kowamazibulo omthinjwa osentolongweni engumhadi, namazibulo onke eenkomo. 12:30 Wavuka uFaro ebusuku, yena nabakhonzi bakhe bonke, namaYiputa onke; kwabakho isikhalo esikhulu eYiputa; kuba akubangakho ndlu ingenamntu ufileyo. 12:31 Wabiza uMoses noAron ebusuku, wathi, Sukani niphume phakathi kwabantu bam, nina aba noonyana bakaSirayeli, nihambe niye kumkhonza uYehova, njengokutsho kwenu; 12:32 nempahla yenu emfutshane neenkomo zenu zithabatheni, njengoko natshoyo, nihambe; nam nindisikelele. 12:33 AmaYiputa ajokisa ukubandulula abantu ngobungxamo kwelo zwe; kuba abesithi, Sonke sesifile. 12:34 Abantu bayithabatha intlama yabo ingekabi nagwele, imikhumbi yabo yokuxovulela isongelwe ezingutyeni zabo, ibotshelelwe emagxeni abo. 12:35 Oonyana bakaSirayeli benza ngokwelizwi likaMoses; bacela kumaYiputa iimpahla zesilivere, neempahla zegolide, neengubo. 12:36 UYehova wabababala abantu phambi kwamaYiputa, abenza ukuba bacele. Bawaphanga ke amaYiputa. 12:37 Banduluka ke oonyana bakaSirayeli eRameses, baya eSukoti, amadoda eenyawo engathi akumakhulu omathandathu amawaka, ngaphandle kosapho. 12:38 Kwenyuka ke nabo inkitha engumxube, nempahla emfutshane, neenkomo, imfuyo eninzi kunene. 12:39 Bosa amaqebengwana angenagwele entlama, ababephume nayo eYiputa, kuba ibingenagwele; kuba bagxothwa eYiputa ababa nakulibala, kananjalo babengazenzelanga mphako. 12:40 Ke ukuhlala koonyana bakaSirayeli, abakuhlalayo eYiputa, yiminyaka emakhulu mane aneminyaka emanci mathathu. 12:41 Ekupheleni kweminyaka emakhulu mane, aneminyaka emanci mathathu, kwathi, kanye ngayo loo mini, yaphuma yonke imikhosi kaYehova ezweni laseYiputa. 12:42 Bubusuku obo bokugcina kukaYehova, kuba wabakhupha ezweni laseYiputa. Bubusuku bukaYehova obo bokugcinwa ngoonyana bakaSirayeli bonke, ezizukulwaneni zabo. 12:43 Wathi uYehova kuMoses nakuAron, Ummiselo wepasika ngulo: Bonke oonyana bolunye uhlanga abasayi kudla kuyo. 12:44 Onke amakhoboka, abantu abazuzwe ngemali, uze uwaluse, andule ke ukudla kuyo. 12:45 Olundwendwe nongumqeshwa akasayi kudla kuyo. 12:46 Yodlelwa ndlwini-nye; akusayi kusa nto yaloo nyama ngaphandle kwendlu, anisayi kwaphula thambo layo. 12:47 Lonke ibandla lakwaSirayeli loyenza loo nto. 12:48 Xa athe owasemzini waphambukela kuwe, wenza ipasika kuYehova, mayaluswe yonke into eyindoda kuye, andule ke ukusondela, ayenze, abe njengozalelwe kwelo zwe; bonke abangaluswanga abasayi kudla kuyo. 12:49 Woba mnye umyalelo, kozalelwe kwelo zwe, nakowasemzini ophambukele phakathi kwenu. 12:50 Benza ke bonke oonyana bakaSirayeli; njengoko uYehova wabawisela umthetho uMoses noAron, benjenjalo. 12:51 Kwathi, ngayo kanye loo mini, uYehova wabakhupha oonyana bakaSirayeli ezweni laseYiputa ngokwemikhosi yabo.

Yonke into elizibulo lomntu koonyana bakho, nayo woyikhulula ngokuyimisela. 13:14 Kothi, xa unyana wakho akubuzayo ngexesha elizayo, esithi, Yintoni na le nto? uze uthi kuye, UYehova wasikhupha eYiputa, endlwini yobukhoboka, ngesithe nkqi isandla; 13:15 kwathi, xa uFaro wayelukhuni ukusindulula, uYehova wawabulala onke amazibulo ezweni laseYiputa, ethabathela kwizibulo lomntu, wesa kwizibulo lenkomo; kungenxa yoko, le nto ndibingelela kuYehova yonke into evula isizalo eliduna, ndiyikhulule ngokuyimisela yonke into elizibulo koonyana bam; 13:16 ibe ngumqondiso esandleni sakho, ibe sisikhumbuzo phakathi kwamehlo akho, kuba uYehova wasikhupha eYiputa ngesithe nkqi isandla. 13:17 Kwathi, akubandulula uFaro abantu, uThixo akabakhokela ngendlela yelizwe lamaFilisti, nakuba ibimfutshane yona: kuba wathi uThixo, hleze abantu bazohlwaye bakubona imfazwe, babuyele eYiputa. 13:18 UThixo wabazungulezisa abantu ngendlela yentlango yoLwandle oluBomvu. Banyuka bexhobile oonyana bakaSirayeli, bevela ezweni laseYiputa. 13:19 UMoses wawathabatha wahamba nawo amathambo kaYosefu; kuba wayebafungisile nokubafungisa oonyana bakaSirayeli, esithi, UThixo uya kunivelela okunene; nize niwanyuse amathambo am, emke nani kule ndawo. 13:20 Banduluka eSukoti, balalisa e-Etam, enyeleni yentlango. 13:21 UYehova wahamba phambi kwabo ngomqulu welifu emini, ebakhokela ngendlela; ngomqulu womlilo ebusuku, ebakhanyisela, ukuze bahambe imini nobusuku. 13:22 Awusukanga umqulu welifu emini, nomqulu womlilo ebusuku, phambi kwabantu.

Benjenjalo ke. 14:5 Waxelelwa ukumkani waseYiputa, ukuba abantu babalekile; yaba yeyimbi intliziyo kaFaro neyabakhonzi bakhe kubantu, bathi, Siyenzele ntoni na le nto, yokusuka simndulule uSirayeli ekusikhonzeni? 14:6 Wayibopha inqwelo yakhe yokulwa, wabathabatha abantu bakhe, bahamba naye. 14:7 Wathabatha amakhulu omathandathu eenqwelo zokulwa ezikhethiweyo, neenqwelo zonke zokulwa zaseYiputa, nabaphathi-mikhosi phezu kwazo zonke ziphela. 14:8 UYehova wayenza lukhuni ke intliziyo kaFaro ukumkani waseYiputa, wabasukela oonyana bakaSirayeli, baye oonyana bakaSirayeli bephume ngesandla esiphakamileyo. 14:9 AmaYiputa abasukela, enamahashe onke eenqwelo zokulwa kaFaro, nakhwelwayo akhe, nempi yakhe, afika kubo bemise iintente ngaselwandle, ngasePi-hahiroti phambi kweBhahali-tsefon. 14:10 Wasondela uFaro. Bawaphakamisa amehlo abo oonyana bakaSirayeli, nango amaYiputa efake emva kwabo. Boyika kunene, bakhala oonyana bakaSirayeli kuYehova. 14:11 Bathi kuMoses, kungokuba bekungekho mangcwaba na eYiputa, le nto usithabathileyo ukuba sifele entlango apha? Yini na ukuba usenze into enje, usikhuphe eYiputa? 14:12 Asililo na eli ilizwi ebesilithetha kuwe eYiputa, sisithi, Siyeke, siwakhonze amaYiputa? Kuba kube kusilungele kanye ukuba sikhonze amaYiputa, kunokuba sifele entlango apha. 14:13 Wathi uMoses ebantwini, Musani ukoyika; misani, nilubone usindiso lukaYehova aya kunenzela lona namhla; kuba amaYiputa lawo niwabonileyo namhlanje, anisayi kuphinda niwabone naphakade. 14:14 UYehova uya kunilwela, ke nina niya kuthi cwaka. 14:15 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yini na ukuba ukhale kum?

Wesuka umqulu welifu phambi kwayo, wema emva kwayo; 14:20 wathi zinzi phakathi kwempi yamaYiputa, nemfuduka yamaSirayeli. Kwabakho ilifu nobumnyama kumaYiputa, labukhanyisela ubusuku kumaSirayeli; akasondelana ubusuku bonke. 14:21 UMoses wasolula isandla sakhe phezu kolwandle, walumkisa uYehova ulwandle ngomoya wasempumalanga onamandla, bonke obo busuku, walwenza umhlaba owomileyo ulwandle, ahlulelana amanzi. 14:22 Bangena oonyana bakaSirayeli elwandle phakathi, kowomileyo; asuka amanzi aba ludonga ngasekunene nangasekhohlo. 14:23 Asukela amaYiputa, angena emva kwabo elwandle phakathi, enamahashe onke kaFaro, neenqwelo zakhe zokulwa, nabamahashe bakhe. 14:24 Kwathi ngomlindo wokusa, uYehova waqondela empini yamaYiputa esemqulwini womlilo nelifu; wayidubaduba impi yamaYiputa. 14:25 Wayidonyula imilenze yeenqwelo zawo zokulwa, aziqhuba nzima. Athi amaYiputa, Masisabe phambi kwamaSirayeli, kuba uYehova uyawalwela, esilwa namaYiputa. 14:26 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yolula isandla sakho phezu kolwandle, amanzi abuyele phezu kwamaYiputa, phezu kweenqwelo zawo zokulwa, naphezu kwabamahashe bawo. 14:27 Wasolula uMoses isandla sakhe phezu kolwandle, ulwandle lwabuyela ebumeni balo, ukuthi qhiphu kokusa; asaba amaYiputa asinga kulo. UYehova wawavuthululela amaYiputa phakathi elwandle. 14:28 Abuya amanzi, azigubungela iingqwelo zokulwa, nabamahashe, nempi yonke kaFaro eyayingene emva kwawo elwandle; akwasala noko amnye kuwo. 14:29 Bona oonyana bakaSirayeli bahamba emhlabeni owomileyo phakathi elwandle; asuka amanzi aba ludonga ngasekunene nangasekhohlo. 14:30 Wawasindisa uYehova ngaloo mini amaSirayeli esandleni samaYiputa; amaSirayeli awabona amaYiputa efile elunxwemeni lolwandle. 14:31 Asibona amaSirayeli isandla esikhulu asibonakalalisileyo uYehova kumaYiputa. Bamoyika, abantu uYehova, bakholwa nguYehova, nanguMoses umkhonzi wakhe.

15:1 Waza uMoses wahlabela le ngoma kuYehova, enoonyana bakaSirayeli, batsho ukuthi: Ndiya kuhlabela kuYehova, kuba enobungangamsha obukhulu, Ihashe nomkhweli walo ulizulumbele elwandle. 15:2 Uqhayiya lam, ungoma yam nguYehova; Waba lusindiso kum. UloThixo wam endimzukisayo, UThixo kabawo endimphakamisayo. 15:3 UYehova yindoda elwayo, UYehova ligama lakhe. 15:4 Iinqwelo zokulwa zikaFaro nempi yakhe waziphosa elwandle; Abahleliweyo kubaphathi-mikhosi bakhe batshoniswe eLwandle oluBomvu. 15:5 Amanzi enzonzobila abagubungele. Behlela ezinzulwini njengelitye. 15:6 Isandla sakho sokunene, Yehova, sivethe amandla; Isandla sakho sokunene, Yehova, sivikiva utshaba. 15:7 Ngobukhulu bobungangamsha bakho ubagungxule abachasi bakho; Ukhupha ukuvutha kwakho, kubadle bona njengeendiza. 15:8 Ngokufutha kwamathatha akho afunjwa amanzi, Yema njengemfumba imiqukuqela. Ajiya amanzi enzonzobila embilinini yolwandle. 15:9 Lwathi utshaba, Ndiyasukela, ndiyafumana, Ndaba ixhoba, umxhelo wam uyazanelisa kubo; Ndirhola ikrele lam, siya kubagqogqa isandla sam. 15:10 Wafutha ngomoya wakho, lwabagubungela ulwandle; Bazulumbeka njengelothe emanzini angangamsha. 15:11 Ngubani na onjengawe phakathi koothixo, Yehova?

Ngoqilima lwakho ubathundezela ekhayeni lakho elingcwele. 15:14 Zivile izizwe, ziyangqunga, Abemi baseFilisti babanjwe kukuzibhijabhija, 15:15 Zaza zakhwankqa izikhulu zakwaEdom; Iinjengele zakwaMowabhi zabanjwa kukuthuthumela, Batha amandla bonke abemi belakwaKanan. 15:16 Bawelwa kukudenga nakukunkwantya, Ngenxa yobukhulu bengalo yakho bathi cwaka njengelitye, Bade badlule abantu bakho, Yehova, Bade badlule abo bantu ubazuzileyo. 15:17 Uya kubangenisa, ubatyale entabeni yelifa lakho, Endaweni oyenzele ukuba uhlale kuyo, Yehova, Engcweleni eziyilungisileyo izandla zakho. 15:18 UYehova uya kuba ngukumkani ngonaphakade kanaphakade. 15:19 Kuba langena elwandle ihashe likaFaro nenqwelo yakhe yokulwa, nabamahashe bakhe. UYehova wawabuyisela phezu kwabo amanzi olwandle; ke bona oonyana bakaSirayeli bahamba kowomileyo, phakathi elwandle. 15:20 UMiriyam umprofetikazi, udade boAron, wathabatha ingqongqo ngesandla sakhe; aphuma onke amankazana emva kwakhe, eneengqongqo engqungqa. 15:21 Wawaphendula uMiriyam wathi, Vumani kuYehova, kuba enobungangamsha obukhulu; Ihashe nomkhweli walo ulizulumbele elwandle. 15:22 UMoses wawandulula amaSirayeli, emka eLwandle oluBomvu, aphuma aya entlango yaseShure; ahamba iintsuku zantathu entlango, akafumana manzi. 15:23 Afika eMara, akaba nakuwasela amanzi aseMara, kuba ayekrakra; ngenxa yoko igama laloo ndawo kwathiwa yiMara. 15:24 Abantu bamkrokrela uMoses, besithi, Siya kusela ntoni na? Wadanduluka kuYehova. 15:25 UYehova wambonisa umthi; wawuphosa emanzini, aba mnandi amanzi.

Inxenye yayibeka umbeko; yabola, yaba neempethu, yanuka. UMoses waba noburhalarhume kubo. 16:21 Bayibutha imiso ngemiso, elowo ngangokudla kwakhe; lathi lakufudumala ilanga yanyibilika. 16:22 Kwathi ngemini yesithandathu, babutha isonka semihla emibini, iihomere ezimbini mntwini mnye.

Hlalani elowo endaweni yakhe; makungaphumi mntu endaweni yakhe ngomhla wesixhenxe. 16:30 Baye bephumla ke abantu ngomhla wesixhenxe. 16:31 Indlu kaSirayeli yathi igama lale nto yimana.

Wenza ke njengoko uYehova wamwisela umthetho uMoses.

Lowo woba ngummiselo ongunaphakade kubo ezizukulwaneni zabo. 17:8 Wothi kubo, Umntu ngomntu wendlu kaSirayeli, nowakubaphambukeli abaphambukele phakathi kwenu, osukuba enyusa idini elinyukayo, nokuba ngumbingelelo, 17:9 angalizisi emnyango wentente yokuhlangana, ukuba alinikele kuYehova: wonqanyulwa loo mntu, angabikho phakathi kwabantu bakowabo. 17:10 Umntu ngomntu wendlu kaSirayeli, nowakubaphambukeli abaphambukele phakathi kwenu, osukuba esidla yonke into eligazi: ndowuchasa umphefumlo odle igazi, ndiwunqamle, ungabikho phakathi kwabantu bakowawo. 17:11 Kuba umphefumlo wenyama usegazini wona. Mna ndaninika lona esibingelelweni, ukuba kucanyagushelwe imiphefumlo yenu; kuba igazi eli licamagusha ngomphefumlo. 17:12 Ngenxa yoko ndithe koonyana bakaSirayeli, Makungabikho namnye umphefumlo kuni odla igazi; nomphambukeli ophambukele phakathi kwenu makangalidli igazi. 17:13 Umntu ngomntu koonyana bakaSirayeli, nomphambukeli ophambukele phakathi kwenu, osukuba ezingela inyamakazi, nokuba yintaka edliwayo, woliphalaza igazi layo, aliselele ngomhlaba. 17:14 Kuba umphefumlo wenyama yonke, igazi layo eli ngumphefumlo wayo. Ndathi ke koonyana bakaSirayeli, Ize ningadli gazi lanyama nokuba yiyiphi; ngokuba umphefumlo wenyama yonke ligazilayo. Bonke abalidlayo bonqanyulwa. 17:15 Wonke ubani osukuba esidla into ezifeleyo, neqwengiweyo, engozalelwe ekhaya nomphambukeli, wozihlamba iingubo zakhe, ahlambe emanzini, abe yinqambi, ahlwise; wohlambuluka ke. 17:16 Ukuba akathanga azihlambe, akawuhlamba umzimba wakhe, wobuthwala ubugwenxa bakhe.

21:1 Wathi uYehova kuMoses. Yitsho kubabingeleli, oonyana baka-Aron, ukuthi, Ze kungabikho uzenza inqambi ngenxa yomfi phakathi kwabantu bakowabo. 21:2 Kungaba ngenxa yenyama yakhe ekufuphi kuya yodwa: unina noyisa, nonyana wakhe, nentombi, yakhe, nomzalwana wakhe. 21:3 Nodade wabo oseyintombi, leyo ikufuphi kuya, ingenandoda, angazenza inqambi ngenxa yayo. 21:4 Engumninimzi nje, makangazenzi inqambi phakathi kwabantu bakowabo, ukuba azihlambele. 21:5 Ize bangenzi mpandla entlokweni yabo, bangaliguyi icala leendevu zabo, bangayicenti inyama yabo. 21:6 Mababe ngcwela kuThixo wabo, bangalihlambeli igama loThixo wabo; kuba besondeza ukudla kwasemlilweni kukaYehova, ukudla koThixo wabo; mababe ngcwele. 21:7 Makangazeki mfazi ulihenyukazi, nohlanjelwayo; angazeki mfazi waliweyo yindoda yakhe; ngokuba ungcwele kuThixo wakhe. 21:8 Uze umngcwalise ke; kuba esondeza ukudla koThixo wakho; woba ngcwele kuwe, ngokuba ndingcwele, mna Yehova uningcwalisayo. 21:9 Intombi yendoda engumbingeleli, xa ithe yazihlambela ngokuhenyuza, ihlambela uyise; yotshiswa ngomlilo. 21:10 Umbingeleli omkhulu phakathi kwabazalwana bakhe, obegalelwe ioli yokuthambisa entloko, omiselweyo ukuze azambatha izambatho, makangaziyeki ziyakazele iinwele zakhe, angazikrazuli lingubo zakhe; 21:11 angayi nakumntu ofileyo, angazenzi inqambi nangenxa kayise, nangenxa kanina. 21:12 Makangaphumi engcweleni, angayihlambeli ingcwele yoThixo wakhe; ngokuba ukwahlula kweoli yokuthambisa yoThixo wakhe kuphezu kwakhe: ndinguYehova. 21:13 Makazeke umfazi osebuntombini bakhe. 21:14 Umhlolokazi, nowaliweyo, nohlanjelweyo olihenyukazi, abo makangabazeki; wozeka intombi yodwa yasebantwini bakowabo, ibe ngumfazi; 21:15 angayihlambeli imbewu yakhe phakathi kwabantu bakowabo; ngokuba ndinguYehova omngcwalisayo. 21:16 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi, 21:17 Thetha kuAron, uthi, Indoda phakathi kwembewu yakho ezizukulwaneni zabo, esukuba inesiphako, mayingasondeli isondeze ukudla koThixo wayo. 21:18 Ze kungasondeli nanye indoda, xa sukuba inesiphako: indoda eyimfama, nesiqhwala, nelinyaziweyo ebusweni, nesilima, 21:19 nendoda eyaphuke unyawo, neyaphuke isandla; 21:20 nenofundo, nengcungcuthekileyo, nenomlanga, nenokhwekhwe, nenesitshanguba, netyumke isende. 21:21 Ze kungasondeli nanye indoda enesiphako, yembewu ka-Aron umbingeleli, isondeze ukudla kwasemlilweni kukaYehova; inesiphako; mayingasondeli, isondeze ukudla koThixo wayo. 21:22 Ingakudla ukudla koThixo wayo kwezinto eziziingcwala kangcwele, kwanazingcwela. 21:23 Kodwa mayingezi emkhusaneni, ingasondeli nasesibingelelweni, ngokuba inesiphako; ukuze ingayihlambeli ingcwela yam; ngokuba ndinguYehova obangcwalisayo. 21:24 Wakuthetha ke oko uMoses kuAron noonyana bakhe, noonyana bonke bakaSirayeli.

22:1 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi, 22:2 Thetha kuAron nakoonyana bakhe, bazahlule ezintweni ezingcwele zoonyana bakaSirayeli, bangalihlambeli igama lam elingcwele ezintweni abazingcwalisayo kum: ndinguYehova. 22:3 Yithi kubo, Ezizukulwaneni zenu, bonke abantu abangabembewu yenu, abasukuba besondela ezintweni ezingcwale, abazingcwalisayo oonyana bakaSirayeli kuYehova, benobunqambi babo, loo miphefumlo yonqanyulwa, ingabikho ebusweni bam: ndinguYehova. 22:4 Umntu ngomntu ongowembewu ka-Aron, oneqhenqa, nobhobhozayo, makangazidli izinto ezingcwele, ade ahlambuluke. Nalowo umchukumisayo wonke ubani oyinqambi ngofileyo, nendoda esukuba incola; 22:5 nomntu osukuba echukumisa yonke into enyakazelayo, eyinqambi kuya, nokuba ngumntu oyinqambi kuye ebunqambini bakhe bonke: 22:6 umphefumlo osukuba uyichukumisa into enjalo, woba yinqambi, uhlwise; lowo makangadli ezintweni ezingcwele. Ke makawuhlambe umzimba wakhe emanzini; 22:7 lakutshona ilanga, wothi ehlambulukile adle emveni koko ezintweni ezingcwele; ngokuba kukudla kwakhe. 22:8 Into ezifeleyo neqwengiweyo makangayidli, azenze inqambi ngayo: ndinguYehova. 22:9 Ize basigcine isigxina sam, bangazithwalisi isono, bafe ngaso, ngokuba besihlambele sona: ndinguYehova obangcwalisayo. 22:10 Wonke ongengowakuni aze angadli nto ingcwele; olundwendwe lombingeleli, nomqeshwa, aze angadli nto ingcwele. 22:11 Umbingeleli xa athe wathenga umntu, waba yintengo yemali yakhe, makadle kuyo lowo, kwanozelelwe endlwini yakhe; abo bodla ukudla kwakhe. 22:12 Intombi yombingeleli, xa ithe yendela kwindoda engeyeyakuni, yona mayingadli emrhumeni weento ezingcwele. 22:13 Intombi yombingeleli, xa ithe yangumhlolokazi, nokuba ithe yaliwa, ingazalanga, yabuyela endlwini kayise, yokudla ukudla kukayise njengasebutsheni bayo. Wonke ongengowakuni makangadli kuko. 22:14 Umntu othe wayidla into engcwele ngokulahleka, makongeze isihlanu sayo kuyo, ayinike umbingeleli into engcwele. 22:15 Ize bangazihlambeli izinto ezingcwele zoonyana bakaSirayeli, ezo bazirhumela uYehova, 22:16 babathwalise ubugwenxa betyala ekudleni kwabo izinto zabo ezingcwele: ngokuba ndinguYehova obangcwalisayo. 22:17 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi, 22:18 Thetha kuAron nakoonyana bakhe, nakoonyana bonke bakaSirayeli, uthi kubo, Umntu ngomntu wendlu kaSirayeli, nowakubaphambukeli abakwaSirayeli, osukuba esondeza umsondezo wakhe ngokubhekisele kwizibhambathiso zabo zonke, nangokubhekisele kwimibingelelo yabo yonke yokuqhutywa yintliziyo, asukuba ewusondeza kuYehova, ukuba ube lidini elinyukayo: 22:19 wothi, ukuze unikholekise, ube liduna eligqibeleleyo lasezinkomeni, nokuba lelasezigusheni, nelasezibhokhweni. 22:20 Izinto zonke ezinesiphako ize ningazisondezi, ngokuba azisayi kunikholekisa. 22:21 Umntu, xa athe wasondeza umbingelelo woxolo kuYehova, ukuba ube ngowesibhambathiso esibalulekileyo, nokuba ube ngowokuqhutywa yintliziyo, oziinkomo noyimpahla emfutshane: uze ube ngogqibeleleyo ukuze ukholeke, uze ungabi nasiphako nasiphi. 22:22 Eziziimfama, ezaphukileyo, ezilinyaziweyo, ezinokhwekhwe, ezinesitshanguba, ize ningazisondezi ezo kuYehova, ninganikeli ngazo ukudla kwasemlilweni esibingelelweni kuYehova. 22:23 Inkomo negusha enendawo eyolukileyo, neshwabeneyo, ungayenza umbingelelo wokuqhutywa yintliziyo; ke ayiyi kukholekisa ukuba ingowesibhambathiso. 22:24 Into emasende atyunyuziweyo, nakhandiweyo, naqhiwulweyo, nanqunyulweyo, ize ningayisondezi kuYehova. Ezweni lenu ze ningenjenjalo. 22:25 Nasesandleni sowolunye uhlanga ize ningamkeli nisondeze ukudla koThixo wenu kwezo nto, nakuziphi; ngokuba ukonakala kwazo kukuzo, isiphako sikuzo; aziyi kunikholekisa. 22:26 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi, 22:27 Inkomo, negusha, nebhokhwe, xa izalwayo, yoba mihla isixhenxe phantsi konina. Kuthabathela kusuku lwesibhozo nangasemva kwalo, iya kukholekisa, ibe ngumsondezo wasemlilweni kuYehova. 22:28 Inkomo, nokuba yigusha, ize ningayixheli ngamini-nye netakane layo. 22:29 Xa nithe nawubingelela umbingelelo wombulelo kuYehova, nowubingelela ukuba unikholekise. 22:30 Wodliwa kwangaloo mhla, ningashiyi nto kuwo kude kuse: ndinguYehova. 22:31 Ize niyigcine imithetho yam, niyenze: ndinguYehova. 22:32 Ize ningalihlambeli igama lam elingcwele; ndongcwaliswa phakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli: ndinguYehova oningcwalisayo, 22:33 onikhuphileyo ezweni laseYiputa, ukuze ndibe nguThixo wenu: ndinguYehova.

23:1 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi, 23:2 Thetha koonyana bakaSirayeli, uthi kubo, Amaxesha amisiweyo kaYehova, eniya kuwavakalisa ukuba abe ziintlanganiso ezingcwele, ngawo la amaxesha am amisiweyo. 23:3 Wosebenza imihla emithandathu; ke umhla wesixhenxe uyisabatha kasabatha, yintlanganiso engcwele. Ze ningenzi namnye umsebenzi ngawo: yisabatha kaYehova emakhayeni enu onke. 23:4 Ngawo la amaxesha amisiweyo kaYehova, iintlanganiso ezingcwele, eniya kuzivakalisa ngamaxesha azo amisiweyo ngenyanga yokuqala, 23:5 ngolweshumi elinesine enyangeni leyo, lakutshona ilanga, yipasika kaYehova. 23:6 Ngosuku lweshumi elinesihlanu enyangeni leyo ngumthendeleko wezonka ezingenagwele kaYehova; iintsuku ezisixhenxe nodla izonka ezingenagwele. 23:7 Ngosuku lokuqala noba nentlanganiso engcwele; ize ningenzi msebenzi wakukhonza. 23:8 Nosondeza ukudla kwasemlilweni kuYehova iintsuku ezisixhenxe; ngosuku lwesixhenxe yintlanganiso engcwele; ize ningenzi msebenzi wakukhonza. 23:9 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi, 23:10 Thetha koonyana bakaSirayeli, uthi kubo: Xa nithe nafika kulo ilizwe endininika lona, navuna isivuno salo, nozisa kumbingeleli isinde lokuqala lesivuno senu, 23:11 alitshangatshangise isinde phambi koYehova; ukuze linikholekise, alitshangatshangise umbingeleli ngengomso emva kwesabatha; 23:12 ize ninikele, ngomhla wokulitshangatshangisa kwenu isinde, imvana egqibeleleyo emnyaka mnye, ibe lidini elinyukayo kuYehova; 23:13 nomnikelo walo wokudla ube zizahlulo ezibini zesishumi se-efa zomgubo ocoliweyo, ogalelwe ioli. Kukudla kwasemlilweni kuYehova, livumba elithozamisayo; nomnikelo walo othululwayo wewayini woba sisahlulo sesine sehin. 23:14 Ize ningadli sonka, nakhweba, nangqolowa intsha, ide ibe yinkqu yayo loo mini, nizisa ngayo umsondezo kaThixo wenu: ngummiselo ongunaphakade ezizukulwaneni zenu, emakhayeni enu onke. 23:15 Ize nizibalele iisabatha ezisixhenxe ezigqibeleleyo, nithabathela kwingomso emva kwesabatha, ngomhla wokuzisa kwenu isinde lokutshangatshangisa, 23:16 kude kube lingomso emva kwesabatha yesixhenxe; nobala imihla emashumi mahlanu, nisondeze umnikelo wokudla omtsha kuYehova. 23:17 Emakhayeni enu ize nirhole nizise izonka zokutshangatshangisa zibe zibini, zezahlulo ezibini zesishumi zomgubo ocoliweyo, zosiwe zinegwele, zibe ziintlahlela kuYehova. 23:18 Ndawonye nezonka ezo ize nisondeze iimvana ezigqibeleleyo ezisixhenxe, ezimnyaka mnye, nenkunzi entsha, ithole lenkomo, ibe nye, neenkunzi zezimvu zibe mbini, zibe lidini elinyukayo kuYehova, neminikelo yazo yokudla, neminikelo yazo ethululwayo; kukudla kwasemlilweni, kwevumba elithozamisayo kuYehova. 23:19 Ize ninikele inkunzi yebhokhwe exhonti ibe nye, ibe lidini lesono, neemvana ezimbini ezimnyaka mnye zibe ngumbingelelo woxolo. 23:20 Wozitshangatshangisa umbingeleli ezo zinto, ndawonye nezonka eziziintlahlela, zibe ngumtshangatshangiso phambi koYehova, ndawonye neemvana ezimbini; zibe ngcwele kuYehova ngenxa yombingeleli. 23:21 Nize nimeme ngenkqu yayo loo mini, ukuba kubekho intlanganiso engcwele kuni; ize ningenzi msebenzi wakukhonza. Ngummiselo ongunaphakade emakhayeni enu onke ezizukulwaneni zenu. 23:22 Ekuvuneni kwenu isivuno selizwe lenu, uze ungaligqibi icala lentsimi yakho ekuvuneni kwakho, ungalubhikici ubhikico lwesivuno sakho; woshiyela olusizana nomphambukeli: ndinguYehova uThixo. 23:23 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi, 23:24 Thetha koonyana bakaSirayeli, uthi, Ngenyanga yesixhenxe, ngolokuqala enyangeni leyo, noba nesabatha, isikhumbuzo sokumema ngesigodlo intlanganiso engcwele. 23:25 Ize ningenzi namnye umsebenzi wakukhonza; nosondeza ukudla kwasemlilweni kuYehova. 23:26 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi, 23:27 Kodwa ngolweshumi kule nyanga yesixhenxe, ngomhla wokucamagusha, yoba yintlanganiso engcwele kuni, niyithobe imiphefumlo yenu; nisondeze ukudla kwasemlilweni kukaYehova. 23:28 Ize ningenzi namnye umsebenzi ngenkqu yayo loo mini, kuba ngumhla wokucamagusha, wokunicamagushela phambi koYehova uThixo wenu. 23:29 Kuba wonke umphefumlo, osukuba ungazithobi ngenkqu yayo loo mini, wonqanyulwa, ungabikho ebantwini bakowawo. 23:30 Wonke umphefumlo, osukuba usenza namnye umsebenzi ngenkqu yayo loo mini, ndowutshabalalisa loo mphefumlo, ungabikho phakathi kwabantu bako wawo. 23:31 Ize ningenzi namnye umsebenzi. Ngummiselo ongunaphakade ezi zukulwaneni zenu, emakhayeni enu onke. 23:32 Yisabatha kasabatha kuni; noyithoba imiphefumlo yenu. Ngolwe sithoba enyangeni leyo, ngokuhlwa, kuthabathele ekuhlweni kuse ekuhlweni, nophumla ngesabatha yenu. 23:33 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi, 23:34 Thetha koonyana bakaSirayeli, uthi, Ngosuku lweshumi elinesihlanu kule nyanga yesixhenxe, ngumthendeleko weminquba iintsuku ezisixhenxe kuYehova. 23:35 Ngosuku lokuqala yintlanganiso engcwele; ize ningenzi msebenzi wakukhonza. 23:36 Iintsuku ezisixhenxe nosondeza ukudla kwasemlilweni kuYehova; ngosoku lwesibhozo yoba yintlanganiso engcwele kuni, nisondeze ukudla kwasemlilweni kuYehova. Yingqungquthela; ize ningenzi msebenzi wakukhonza. 23:37 Ngawo lawo amaxesha amisiweyo kaYehova, enowavakalisa abe ziintlanganiso ezingcwele, okusondeza ukudla kwasemlilweni kuYehova: idini elinyukayo, nomnikelo wokudla, umbingelelo neminikelo ethululwayo, into yemini ngangemini yayo; 23:38 ngaphandle kweesabatha zikaYehova, nangaphandle kweminikelo yenu, nangaphandle kwezibhambathiso zenu zonke, nangaphandle kweminikelo yenu yonke yokuqhutywa yintliziyo, enimnikayo uYehova. 23:39 Kodwa ngosuku lweshumi elinesihlanu enyangeni yesixhenxe, ekuhlanganiseni kwenu ungeniselo lwelizwe, ize nenze umthendeleko kaYehova iintsuku ezisixhenxe; ngomhla wokuqala yisabatha, nangomhla wesibhozo yisabatha. 23:40 Ize nizithabathele ngomhla wokuqala amahlamvu emithi okuhombisa, amagqabi amasundu, namasebe emithi ethe shinyi, nemingculuba yasemlanjeni; nigcobe phambi koYehova uThixo wenu iintsuku ezisixhenxe. 23:41 Lo mthendeleko nowenzela uYehova iintsuku ezisixhenxe ngomnyaka. 23:42 Ngummiselo ongunaphakade ezizukulwaneni zenu: niwenze umthendeleko ngenyanga yesixhenxe. Nohlala eminqubeni iintsuku ezisixhenxe; bonke abazalelwe kwaSirayeli bohlala eminqubeni; 23:43 ukuze zazi izizukulwana zenu, ukuba ndabahlalisa oonyana bakaSirayeli eminqubeni, ekubakhupheni kwam ezweni laseYiputa: ndinguYehova, uThixo wenu. 23:44 UMoses wabaxelela oonyana bakaSirayeli amaxesha lawo amisiweyo kaYehova.

24:1 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi, 24:2 Bawisele umthetho oonyana bakaSirayeli, bathabathe bazise kuwe ioli eqaqambileyo yeminquma engqushiweyo yesikhanyiso, ukuba kumiswe isibane samaxesha onke. 24:3 Nganeno komkhusane wesingqino, ententeni yokuhlangana, wohlala ezicwangcisa uAron izibane phambi koYehova, kuthabathela ngokuhlwa kuzise ekuseni: ngummiselo ongunaphakade ezizukulwaneni zenu. 24:4 Wohlala ezicwangcisa izibane esiphathweni sezibane esicocekileyo phambi koYehova. 24:5 Uze uthabathe umgubo ocoliweyo, uwose ube yimiqhathane elishumi elinamibini, umqhathane omnye ube zizahlulo ezibini zesishumi. 24:6 Uze uyikrozise ngemikrozo emibini, ibe mithandathu mkrozweni mnye, etafileni ecocekileyo ephambi koYehova; 24:7 ubeke intlaka emhlophe eqaqambileyo phezu komkrozo ngamnye, ibe sisikhumbuzo sesonka, ukudla kwasemlilweni kuYehova. 24:8 Wohlala eyicwangcisa phambi koYehova ngemihla yonke yesabatha, ivela koonyana bakaSirayeli: ngumnqophiso ongunaphakade. 24:9 Yoba yeka-Aron noonyana bakhe, bayidle endaweni engcwele; kuba yingcwele kangcwele kuye, ivela ekudleni kwasemlilweni kukaYehova: ngummiselo ongunaphakade. 24:10 Ke kaloku kwaphuma unyana womSirayelikazi phakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli; waye engunyana womYiputa. Lo nyana womSirayelikazi nomfo wakwaSirayeli bantlalana eminqubeni, 24:11 unyana womSirayelikazi lowo walithuka iGama, watshabhisa. Bamzisa kuMoses (igama lonina lalinguShelomiti, intombi kaDibri, wesizwe sakwaDan). 24:12 Bamfaka elugcinweni, bade babahlulele loo nto ngokomlomo kaYehova. 24:13 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses, esithi, 24:14 Mkhupheni lowo utshabhisileyo, abe ngaphandle kweminquba; bonke abo bamvileyo bacinezele ngezandla zabo entlokweni yakhe, limxulube ngamatye lonke ibandla. 24:15 Uze uthethe koonyana bakaSirayeli, uthi, Umntu ngomntu, xa athe wamtshabhisa uThixo wakhe, wosithwala isono sakhe. 24:16 Olithukayo igama likaYehova makabulawe afe. Lonke ibandla lomxuluba okunene ngamatye, kwanomphambukeli, kwanozalelwe ekhaya; ekulithukeni kwakhe iGama makabulawe. 24:17 Umntu othe wabetha umntu wafa, nokuba nguwuphi, makabulawe afe. 24:18 Obethe inkomo yafa, woyimisela; umphefumlo ngomphefumlo. 24:19 Umntu xa athe wamlimaza ummelwane wakhe, njengoko enze ngako, makwenziwe ngako kuye: 24:20 ukwaphulwa ngokwaphulwa, iliso ngeliso, izinyo ngezinyo. Njengoko amlimazileyo umntu, makwenziwe ngoko kuye. 24:21 Obethe inkomo yafa, woyimisela; ke obethe umntu wafa makabulawe. 24:22 Masibe sinye isigwebo senu kumphambukeli nakozalelwe ekhaya; ngokuba ndinguYehova uThixo wenu. 24:23 Wathetha uMoses koonyana bakaSirayeli; bamkhuphela phandle kweminquba lowo utshabhisileyo, bamxuluba ngamatye.

25:1 Wathetha uYehova kuMoses entabeni yaseSinayi, esithi, 25:2 Thetha koonyana bakaSirayeli, uthi kubo, Xa nithe nafika kulo ilizwe endininika lona, ilizwe elo ke lophumla isabatha kuYehova. 25:3 Woyihlwayela iminyaka emithandathu intsimi yakho, usithene isidiliya sakho iminyaka emithandathu, uhlanganise ungeniselo lwaso; 25:4 ke umnyaka wesixhenxe woba yisabatha yesabatha kulo ilizwe, isabatha kuYehova. Uze ungayihlwayeli intsimi yakho, ungasitheni isidiliya sakho; 25:5 ungawuvuni ummilela wokuvuna kwakho, neediliya zesidiliya sakho esingathenwanga uze ungazisiki. Woba ngumnyaka wesabatha kulo ilizwe. 25:6 Isabatha yalo ilizwe yoba kukudla kuni, kuwe nakwisicaka sakho, nakwisicakakazi sakho, nakumqeshwa wakho, nakolundwendwe kuwe, nakophambukele kuwe, 25:7 nakwiinkomo zakho, nakwiinyamakazi ezisezweni lakho; lonke ungeniselo lwalo loba kukudla. 25:8 Uze uzibalele iisabatha ezisixhenxe zeminyaka, iminyaka esixhenxe ibe zizihlandlo ezisixhenxe, ize imihla yeesabatha ezisixhenxe zeminyaka ibe yiminyaka emashumi mane aneminyaka esithoba kuwe; 25:9 usihambise isigodlo sokumema ngenyanga yesixhenxe, ngolweshumi enyangeni leyo; ngomhla wokucamagusha nosihambisa isigodlo ezweni lenu lonke; 25:10 umnyaka niwungcwalise, umnyaka wamashumi omahlanu, nivakalise inkululeko ezweni kubemi balo bonke. Woba ngowentlokoma kuni, nibuvele elowo emizalwaneni yakhe. 25:11 Umnyaka woba ngowentlokoma kuni, umnyaka wamashumi omahlanu, ukuba ningahlwayeli, ningawuvuni ummilela, ningasisiki isidiliya esingathenwanga. 25:12 Ngokuba le ntlokoma yoba ngcwele kuni; noludla luvela entsimini ungeniselo lwayo. 25:13 Ngalo mnyaka wentlokoma nobuyela elowo elifeni lakhe. 25:14 Xa nithe nathengisa ngento ethengisayo kummelwane wenu, naxa uthe wathenga esandleni sommelwane wakho, musani ukubandezelana. 25:15 Wothenga wena kummelwane wakho ngokwenani leminyaka emva komnyaka wentlokoma; wothengisa yena kuwe ngokwenani leminyaka yongeniselo. 25:16 Ngokobuninzi beminyaka wolandisa ixabiso layo, nangokobuncinane beminyaka wolinciphisa ixabiso layo; ngokuba ethengisa kuwe ngenani longeniselo. 25:17 Ize ningabandezelani; uze umoyike uThixo wakho, ngokuba ndinguYehova, uThixo wenu. 25:18 Ize niyenze imimiselo yam, niwagcine amasiko am, niwenze. Nohlala kulo ilizwe nikholosile; 25:19 ilizwe livelise iziqhamo zalo, nidle nihluthe, nihlale nikholosile kulo. 25:20 Xa nithe, Sodla ntoni na ngomnyaka wesixhenxe? nanku singahlwayeli, singahlanganisi lungeniselo lwethu: 25:21 ndoyiwisela umthetho intsikelelo yam ibe kuni ngomnyaka wesithandathu, iluvelise ungeniselo lweminyaka emithathu. 25:22 Nohlwayela ngomnyaka wesibhozo, nidle amahasa kude kube ngumnyaka wesithoba; nodla amahasa lude lufike ungeniselo lwawo. 25:23 Ilizwe ze kungathengiswa ngalo, libhange, kuba ilizwe lelam; ngokuba ningabaphambukeli neendwendwe kum; 25:24 ezweni ke lonke lelifa lenu, ilizwe nolirholela intlawulelo. 25:25 Xa athe umzalwana wakho wanzonza, wathengisa ngento yelifa lakhe, makeze owalamana naye ofanele ukumkhulula, ayikhulule ngokuyihlawulela loo nto wathengisa ngayo umzalwana wakhe. 25:26 Umntu xa angenabani wokumkhulula, sibe sinokufikelela isandla sakhe sifumane okulingene ukuzikhululela ngentlawulelo: 25:27 wobala iminyaka yokuthengisa kwakhe, abuyisele okugqithiseleyo kuloo mntu wathengisa kuye, abuyele elifeni lakhe. 25:28 Ukuba isandla sakhe asinakufumana okulingene ukubuyisela kuye loo nto wathengisa ngayo, yohlala esandleni salowo uyithengileyo, kude kube ngumnyaka wentlokoma. Yophuma ngowentlokoma, abuyele elifeni lakhe. 25:29 Umntu xa athe wathengisa ngendlu yokuhlala, isemzini onodonga, yoba nokukhululwa ngentlawulelo ude uphele umnyaka wokuthengiswa kwayo; yoba ziintsuku ezithile isenokukhululwa ngentlawulelo. 25:30 Ukuba ithe ayakhululwa ngentlawulelo, wada wazaliseka waphela umnyaka, yoqiniselwa kuphele indlu esemzini onodonga, kulowo wayithengayo ezizukulwaneni zakhe; ayi kuphuma ngomnyaka wentlokoma. 25:31 Ke izindlu zemizana, engabiyelwe ngeendonga, zobalelwa ekuthini ngamasimi alo ilizwe: zoba nokukhululwa ngentlawulelo zona, ziphume ngomnyaka wentlokoma. 25:32 Ke imizi yabaLevi, izindlu zemizi yelifa labo, zoba nokukhululwa ngentlawulelo nanini kubaLevi. 25:33 Ethe yathengwa kubaLevi, indlu ekuthengiswe ngayo emzini welifa lakhe, yophuma ngomnyaka wentlokoma; ngokuba izindlu zemizi yabaLevi zililifa labo phakathi koonyana bakaSirayeli. 25:34 Ilizwe ledlelo lemizi yabo makungathengiswa ngalo, ngokuba lilifa elingunaphakade kubo. 25:35 Xa athe umzalwana wakho wanzonza, isandla sakhe solukela kuwe, somomeleza, aphile nawe engumphambukeli, elundwendwe kuwe. 25:36 Musa ukuthabatha nzala kuye, nalwando lwemboleko; uze woyike uThixo wakho, aphile umzalwana wakho kuwe. 25:37 Imali yakho uze ungamniki ngenxa yenzala, ungamniki ukudla kwakho ngenxa yolwando lwemboleko: 25:38 ndinguYehova uThixo wenu, onikhuphileyo ezweni laseYiputa, ukuze ndinike ilizwe lakwaKanan, ndibe nguThixo kuni. 25:39 Xa athe umzalwana wakho wanzonza ekuwe, wazithengisa kuwe, uze ungamkhonzisi ngokukhonza kwekhoboka. 25:40 Woba njengomqeshwa, njengolundwendwe kuwe; wokukhonza kude kube ngumnyaka wentlokoma; 25:41 aphume kuwe enabantwana bakhe, abuyele emizalwaneni yakhe, abuyele elifeni likayise; 25:42 ngokuba ngabakhonzi bam abo, endibakhuphileyo ezweni laseYiputa. Makungathengiswa ngabo ngokuthengiswa kwekhoboka. 25:43 Uze ungamphathi ngokutyumzayo; uze woyike uThixo wakho. 25:44 Ikhoboka lakho nekhobokazana lakho, la akuwe, oba ngabasezintlangeni eziningqongileyo; nothenga kuzo ikhoboka nekhobokazana. 25:45 Kanjalo koonyana babaziindwendwe kuni, abaphambukele kuni, nothenga kubo, nasemizalwaneni yabo ekuni, abayizalele ezweni lenu; babe lilifa kuni. 25:46 Nobenza babe lilifa koonyana benu emva kwenu, ukuba babathabathe babe lilifa, nibakhonzise ngonaphakade. Ke bona abazalwana benu, oonyana bakaSirayeli, mabangaphathani ngokutyumzayo. 25:47 Xa sithe isandla somphambukeli nolundwendwe kuwe satyeba ekuwe, umzalwana wakho wanzonza ekuye, wazithengisa kumphambukeli olundwendwe kuwe, nakumlibo womzalwana womphambukeli: 25:48 woba nokukhululwa ngentlawulelo emva kokuzithengisa kwakhe. Omnye kubazalwana bakhe womkhulula ngentlawulelo; 25:49 nokuba nguyisekazi, nokuba ngunyana kayisekazi, womkhulula ngentlawulelo; nokuba ngowenyama yenyama yakhe emizalwaneni yakhe, womkhulula ngentlawulelo; nokuba isandla sakhe sithe satyeba, wozikhulula ngokwakhe ngentlawulelo. 25:50 Wobalelana nowamthengayo, athabathele emnyakeni wokuthengiswa kwakhe kuye, ase emnyakeni wentlokoma, ithi imali yokuthengiswa kwakhe ime ngokwenani leminyaka abekuye, ngokwemihla yomqeshwa. 25:51 Ukuba isemininzi iminyaka, woyibuyisa kwimali yokuthengwa kwakhe, ibe ngangayo intlawulelo yokukhululwa kwakhe. 25:52 Ukuba kuthe kwasala iminyaka embalwa, ukuze kube ngumnyaka wentlokoma, wobala ngokweminyaka yakhe, abuyise intlawulelo yokukhululwa kwakhe. 25:53 Woba njengomqeshwa umnyaka ngomnyaka kuye; aze angamphathi ngokutyumzayo emehlweni akho. 25:54 Ukuba uthe, akakhululwa ngentlawulelo ngabo abo, wophuma ngomnyaka wentlokoma, yena enabantwana bakhe. 25:55 Ngokuba kum oonyana bakaSirayeli ngabakhonzi; bangabakhonzi bam endibakhuphileyo ezweni laseYiputa.

Yonke into esingelwe phantsi yingcwele kangcwele kuYehova. 27:29 Yonke into esingelwe phantsi ethe yasingelwa phantsi ingumntu, mayingakhululwa nangokumiselwa; mayibulawe ife. 27:30 Sonke isishumi somhlaba, sembewu yomhlaba, seziqhamo zomthi, sesikaYehova; singcwele kuYehova. 27:31 Ukuba uthe umntu wasikhulula okunene ngentlawulelo isishumi sakhe, makongeze kuso isahlulo sesihlanu saso. 27:32 Sonke isishumi seenkomo, nasempahleni emfutshane, yonke into ethubeleza phantsi kwentonga, eyeshumi mayibe ngcwele kuYehova. 27:33 Makangagocagoci phakathi kwelungileyo nembi, angayanani; ukuba uthe wayanana ukuyanana oku, mayibe ngcwele yona, naleyo kwananwe ngayo mayingakhululwa ngentlawulelo. 27:34 Yiyo leyo imithetho uYehova wayiwisela uMoses ngenxa yoonyana bakaSirayeli, entabeni yaseSinayi.

31:1 Waya uMoses, wawathetha la mazwi kumaSirayeli onke, 31:2 wathi kuwo, Ndiminyaka ilikhulu elinamanci mabini namhla ndizelwe. Andisenako ukuphuma nokungena; noYehova uthe kum, Akusayi kuyiwela le Yordan. 31:3 NguYehova uThixo wakho owela phambi kwakho; wozitshabalalisa ezo ntlanga phambi kwakho, uzithimbe. NguYoshuwa owela phambi kwakho, njengoko wathethayo uYehova. 31:4 Uya kwenza uYehova kuzo njengoko wenzayo kuSihon nakuOgi, ookumkani bama-Amori, nakwilizwe labo, awabatshabalalisayo; 31:5 azinikele kuni uYehova; nenze kuzo ngokomthetho wonke endiniwiseleyo. 31:6 Yomelelani nikhaliphe: musani ukoyika, musani ukungcangcazela ebusweni bazo. Ngokuba nguYehova uThixo wakho ohamba nawe; akayi kukuyekela, akayi kukushiya. 31:7 UMoses wambiza ke uYoshuwa, wathi kuye emehlweni amaSirayeli onke, Yomelela ukhaliphe; kuba wena uya kungena naba bantu kwelo zwe wafungayo kooyise uYehova ukuba wobanika; wena uya kubadlisa ilifa. 31:8 NguYehova ohamba phambi kwakho; yena uya kuba nawe; akayi kukuyekela, akayi kukushiya. Uze ungoyiki, ungaqhiphuki mbilini. 31:9 Wawubhala uMoses lo myalelo, wawunika ababingeleli, oonyana bakaLevi, ababethwala ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova, namadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli onke. 31:10 UMoses wabawisela umthetho, esithi, Ekupheleni kweminyaka esixhenxe, ngexesha elimisiweyo lomnyaka woyekelelo, emthendelekweni weminquba, 31:11 ekuzeni kubonakala kwamaSirayeli onke phambi koYehova uThixo wakho, kuloo ndawo aya kuyinyula, wowulesa lo myalelo phambi kwamaSirayeli onke ezindlebeni zawo. 31:12 Bobizelwa ndawonye abantu, amadoda, nabafazi, nabantwana, nomphambukeli wakho osemasangweni akho, ukuze beve, nokuze bafunde, bamoyike uYehova uThixo wenu, bagcine ukuwenza onke amazwi alo myalelo; 31:13 beve noonyana babo abangaziyo, bafunde ukumoyika uYehova uThixo wenu, yonke imihla enidla ubomi ngayo, kuloo mhlaba eniwela iYordan nisiya kuwuma. 31:14 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yabona, isondele imihla yakho yokuba ufe. Biza uYoshuwa, niye nime ententeni yokuhlangana, ndimyale. Baya ooMoses noYoshuwa, bema ententeni yokuhlangana. 31:15 Wabonakala uYehova ententeni emqulwini welifu. Wamana umi umqulu welifu phezu komnyango wentente. 31:16 Wathi uYehova kuMoses, Yabona, uya kulala nooyihlo; basuke aba bantu bahenyuze ngokulandela thixo bambi belo zwe bangena kulo phakathi kwalo, bandishiye, bawaphule umnqophiso wam endiwenze nabo; 31:17 uvuthe umsindo wam kubo ngaloo mini, ndibashiye, ndibusithelise ubuso bam kubo, babe ngabokudliwa kuthi tu, bafunyanwe bububi obuninzi naziimbandezelo; bathi ngaloo mini, Akungenxa yokuba engekho na uThixo wam phakathi kwam, le nto ndifunyenwe bobu bubi? 31:18 Ke mna ndiya kubusithelisa kuphele ubuso bam ngaloo mini, ngenxa yobubi bonke ababenzileyo; ngokuba bejike baya thixweni bambi. 31:19 Kaloku ke zibhaleleni le ngoma, niyifundise oonyana bakaSirayeli, niyibeke emlonyeni wabo, ukuze le ngoma ibe lingqina lam koonyana bakaSirayeli. 31:20 Kuba ndiya kubangenisa kuwo umhlaba endafunga kooyise ngawo, obaleka amasi nobusi, badle bahluthe, batyebe; bajike baye thixweni bambi, babakhonze, bandigibe, bawaphule umnqophiso wam. 31:21 Kothi, xa bathe bafunyanwa bububi obuninzi naziimbandezelo, isuke le ngoma iphendule phambi kwabo, ibe lingqina: kuba ayisayi kulityalwa imke emlonyeni wembewu yabo; kuba ndiyakwazi ukucamanga kwabo abakwenzayo namhla, ndingekabangenisi nje’kwelo zwe ndifunge ngalo. 31:22 Wayibhala uMoses loo ngoma ngaloo mini, wayifundisa oonyana bakaSirayeli. 31:23 Wammisela uYoshuwa unyana kaNun umthetho; wathi, Yomelela, ukhaliphe, kuba uya kubangenisa wena oonyana bakaSirayeli kwelo zwe ndabafungela lona. Ndiya kuba nawe mna. 31:24 Kwathi, akugqiba uMoses ukuwabhala amazwi alo myalelo encwadini ada agqitywa, 31:25 uMoses wabawisela umthetho abaLevi, ababethwala ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova, esithi, 31:26 Yithabatheni incwadi yalo myalelo, niyibeke ecaleni letyeya yomnqophiso kaYehova uThixo wenu, ibe lingqina khona kuni. 31:27 Ngokuba ndiyazazi iinkani zakho, nentamo yakho elukhuni. Yabonani, ndisadla ubomi nje, ndisenani, namana niphikisana noYehova; kobeka phi na emva kokufa kwam? 31:28 Bizelani ndawonye onke amadoda amakhulu ezizwe zenu, nababhali benu, beze kum, ndiwathethe la mazwi ezindlebeni zabo, ndingqinisise amazulu nehlabathi ngabo. 31:29 Kuba ndiyazi ukuba, emva kokufa kwam, niya kuzonakalisa kanye, nityeke endleleni endiniwisele umthetho ngayo, nihlelwe bububi ekupheleni kwemihla; ngokuba niya kwenza ububi phambi koYehova, ukuba nimqumbise ngomsebenzi wezandla zenu. 31:30 Wawathetha ke uMoses ezindlebeni zebandla lonke lakwaSirayeli amazwi ale ngoma, ada agqitywa:

Ndiya kubathumela izinyo lamarhamncwa, Nobuhlungu bezinambuzane zothuli. 32:25 Ngaphandle kophanga ikrele, Ezingontsini kuphange izothuso, Kufane indodana nentombi, Kufane owanyayo nengwevu. 32:26 Ngendiba ndithi, Ndiya kubaphephetha, Ndisiphelise isikhumbuzo sabo ebantwini; 32:27 Koko ndinxungupheleyo kukuqunjiswa lutshaba, Hleze ababandezeli babo bangaqondi; Hleze bathi, Kuphakame isandla sethu; Akwenziwe nguYehova oku konke. 32:28 Ngokuba luhlanga oluphelelwe ngamacebo, Tu ingqondo kubo. 32:29 Akwaba babelumkile; ngebekuqiqa oku, Basiqonde isiphelo sabo. 32:30 Yo!

6:1 Ke iYeriko ibihleli ivaliwe ngenxa yoonyana bakaSirayeli; akwabakho uphumayo, akwabakho ungenayo. 6:2 Wathi uYehova kuYoshuwa, Khangela, ndiyinikele esandleni sakho iYeriko, nokumkani wayo, namagorha anobukroti, 6:3 Nowujikeleza umzi nonke, nina madoda okulwa, niwuzunguleze umzi isihlandlo sibe sinye; wenjenjalo imihla emithandathu. 6:4 Ke isixhenxe sababingeleli sophatha izigodlo ezisixhenxe zokuhlaba umkhosi phambi kwetyeya. Nowujikeleza umzi ngomhla wesixhenxe izihlandlo zibe sixhenxe, ababingeleli baquphe ukuvuthela ngezigodlo. 6:5 Kothi ke, ekoluleni ukuvuthela ngesigodlo sokuhlaba umkhosi, ekusiveni kwenu isandi sesigodlo, badume ngokuduma okukhulu bonke abantu, luwe udonga lomzi luthi bhuma, benyuke ke abantu, elowo athi ngqo malunga naye. 6:6 UYoshuwa, unyana kaNun, wababiza ababingeleli, wathi kubo, Thwalani ityeya yomnqophiso, ababingeleli abasixhenxe baphathe izigodlo ezisixhenxe zokuhlaba umkhosi phambi kwetyeya kaYehova. 6:7 Bathi ebantwini, Dlulani niwujikeleze umzi, abaxhobileyo bagqithele phambi kwetyeya kaYehova. 6:8 Kwathi, xenikweni uYoshuwa abetshilo ebantwini, ababingeleli abasixhenxe, abaphethe izigodlo ezisixhenxe zokuhlaba umkhosi phambi koYehova, bagqitha, baqupha ukuvuthela ngezigodlo, ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova ibalandela. 6:9 Abaxhobileyo bahamba phambi kwababingeleli abaquphayo ukuvuthela ngezigodlo; abasemva belandela ityeya, kuhanjwa kuqutshwa ukuvuthela ngezigodlo. 6:10 UYoshuwa wabawisela umthetho abantu, wathi, Ize ningadumi, ningalivakalisi ilizwi lenu, kungaphumi nto emlonyeni wenu, kude kube yimini endothi kuni, Dumani; nidume ke. 6:11 Ityeya ke kaYehova yawujikeleza umzi, yawuzunguleza isihlandlo sasinye; bangena eminqubeni, balala eminqubeni. 6:12 UYoshuwa wavuka kwakusasa ngengomso; bayithwala ababingeleli ityeya kaYehova. 6:13 Ababingeleli abasixhenxe, abaphethe izigodlo ezisixhenxe zokuhlaba umkhosi phambi kwetyeya kaYehova, bamana behamba, bevuthela ngezigodlo, bequpha; nabaxhobileyo behamba phambi kwabo; nabasemva belandela ityeya kaYehova, kuhanjwa kuvuthelwa ngezigodlo kuqutshwa. 6:14 Bawujikeleza muzi ngomhla wesibini isihlandlo sasinye, babuyela eminqubeni.

Benyuka abantu kuwo umzi, elowo wathi ngqo, bawuthimba umzi. 6:21 Bazisingela phantsi ngehlangothi lwekrele zonke izinto ezikuloo mzi, bethabathela kwindoda besa kumfazi, bethabathela kwindoda besa kwixhego, besa nakwinkomo, nakwimpahla emfutshane, nakwiesile. 6:22 UYoshuwa wayeselethe kumadoda amabini abelihlolile ilizwe, Yiyani kwindlu yenkazana leya ilihenyukazi, niyikhuphe khona loo nkazana nento yonke enayo, njengoko nayifungelayo. 6:23 Abengenile ke amadodana aziintlola, amkhupha uRahabhi, noyise, nonina, nabanakwabo, nabo bonke abenabo; nemizalwane yakhe yonke bayikhupha, bayibeka ngaphandle kweminquba yakwaSirayeli. 6:24 Bawutshisa umzi ngomlilo, neento zonke eziluwo; kodwa isilivere, negolide, nempahla yobhedu, neyesinyithi, bayibeka ebuncwaneni bendlu kaYehova. 6:25 Ke uRahabhi, ihenyukazi, nendlu kayise, nabo bonke abenabo, uYoshuwa wamsindisa; wahlala phakathi kwamaSirayeli unanamhla; ngokuba wabazimezayo abathunywa, abebathumile uYoshuwa ukuba bayihlole iYeriko. 6:26 Wafunga uYoshuwa ngelo xesha, esithi, Uqalekisiwe phambi koYehova umntu oya kusuka awakhe lo mzi, iYeriko le; wowuseka ngowamazibulo akhe, azimise iingcango zawo ngowamathumbu akhe. 6:27 UYehova waba noYoshuwa; udumo lwakhe lwaba sezweni lonke.

USimon wahamba naye ke. 1:4 Wenyuka ke uYuda; uYehova wawanikela amaKanan namaPerizi esandleni sabo. Bawabulala eBhezeki amadoda angamawaka alishumi. 1:5 UAdoni waseBhezeki bamfumana eBhezeki, balwa naye, bawabulala amaKanan namaPerizi. 1:6 Wasaba uAdoni waseBhezeki; bamsukela, bambamba, bamnqumla oozithupha noobhontsi. 1:7 Wathi uAdoni waseBhezeki, Ookumkani abamashumi asixhenxe babechola phantsi kwetafile yam, benqunyulwe oozithupha noobhontsi; njengoko ndenza ngako, wenjenjalo uThixo ukubuyekeza kum. Bamsa eYerusalem, wafela khona. 1:8 Ke kaloku oonyana bakaYuda balwa neYerusalem, bayithimba, bayibulala ngohlangothi lwekrele, bathi umzi bawufaka umlilo. 1:9 Behla emveni koko oonyana bakaYuda, baya kulwa namaKanan abehleli kweleentaba, nakwelasezantsi, nakweleentlambo. 1:10 Waya uYuda kumaKanan abehleli eHebron; igama leHebron ngenxa engaphambili beliyiKiriyati ka-Arbha; babulala uSheshayi, noAhiman, noTalemayi. 1:11 Wesuka khona waya kubemi baseDebhiri; igama leDebhiri ngenxa engaphambili beliyiKiriyati-sefere. 1:12 Wathi uKalebhi, Othe wayingenela iKiriyati-sefere, wayithimba, ndomnika intombi yam, uAkesa, ibe ngumkakhe. 1:13 Wayithimba uOteniyeli unyana kaKenazi, umninawa kaKalebhi; wamnika ke intombi yakhe, uAkesa, yangumkakhe. 1:14 Kwathi ekuzeni kwayo, yamvuselela ukuba acele umhlaba kuyise wayo; yehla e-esileni layo. Wathi uKalebhi kuyo, Yintoni na? 1:15 Yathi kuye, Ndinike into, ngokuba undinike umhlaba ongenamanzi; ndinike nemithombo yamanzi. UKalebhi wayinika ke imithombo yasentla nemithombo yasezantsi. 1:16 Oonyana bomKeni, uyise womkaMoses, benyuka eMzini wamaSundu noonyana bakaYuda, baya kwintlango yakwaYuda, engasezantsi kweArade, baya bahlala nabantu abo. 1:17 Waya uYuda noSimon umkhuluwa wakhe, bawabulala amaKanan abehleli eTsefati, bayitshabalalisa. Kwathiwa igama laloo mzi yiHorma. 1:18 UYuda wayithimba iGaza nommandla wayo, neAshkelon nommandla wayo, ne-Ekron nommandla wayo. 1:19 UYehova waye enoYuda, wabagqogqa abeentaba; kodwa ebengenako ukubagqogqa abemi bentili, ngokuba baye beneenqwelo zesinyithi. 1:20 Bamnika uKalebhi umzi waseHebron, njengoko wathethayo uMoses; wabagqogqa apho oonyana bobathathu baka-Anaki. 1:21 Ke amaYebhusi, abehleli eYerusalem, abawagqogqanga oonyana bakaBhenjamin. Ahleli amaYebhusi noonyana bakaBhenjamin eYerusalem unanamhla. 1:22 Indlu kaYosefu yenyuka nayo, yaya kuyingenela iBheteli; uYehova waye enayo. 1:23 Indlu kaYosefu yayihlola iBheteli; ke igama laloo mzi ngenxa engaphambili beliyiLuzi. 1:24 Iintlola ezo zambona umntu ephuma kuloo mzi, zathi kuye, Khawusibonise ithuba lokungena kulo mzi; sokwenzela inceba. 1:25 Wazibonisa ithuba lokungena kuloo mzi; zawubulala umzi ngohlangothi lwekrele; bamndulula loo mntu nemizalwane yakhe yonke. 1:26 Waya loo mntu ezweni lamaHeti, wakha umzi, wathi igama lawo yiLuzi; ligama lawo unanamhla. 1:27 UManase akayigqogqanga iBhete-shehan namagxamesi ayo, neTahanaki namagxamesi ayo, nabemi baseDore namagxamesi ayo, nabemi baseIhlam namagxamesi ayo, nabemi baseMegido namagxamesi ayo; ke amaKanan aphikela ukuhlala kwelo zwe. 1:28 Kwathi, akomelela amaSirayeli, awafaka uviko amaKanan, akawagqogqa awagqibe. 1:29 UEfrayim akawagqogqanga amaKanan abemi eGezere; ahlala amaKanan phakathi kwakhe eGezere. 1:30 UZebhulon akabagqogqanga abemi baseKitron nabemi baseNahaloli; ahlala amaKanan phakathi kwakhe, afakwa uviko. 1:31 UAshere akabagqogqanga abemi baseAko, nabemi baseTsidon, neAhalabhi, neAkezibhi, neHelebha, neAfiki, neRehobhi. 1:32 Ama-Ashere ahlala phakathi kwamaKanan abemi kwelo zwe; ngokuba akawagqogqanga. 1:33 UNafetali akabagqogqanga abemi baseBhete-shemeshe, nabemi baseBhete-anati; wahlala phakathi kwamaKanan abemi kwelo zwe. Abemi baseBhete-shemeshe nabaseBhete-anati bafakwa uviko nguye. 1:34 Ama-Amori abaxinela kweleentaba oonyana bakaDan; ngokuba akabavumelanga ukuba behle beze entilini. 1:35 Ama-Amori aphikela ukuhlala eHarheres, naseAyalon, naseShahalebhim. Isandla sendlu kaYosefu saba nzima, afakwa uviko. 1:36 Umda wama-Amori wathabathela eqhineni leAkrabhim, engxondorheni, wenyusa.

Emijelweni yakwaRubhen Yaba kukusongela okukhulu kwentliziyo. 5:16 Ubuhlaleleni na phakathi kwezibaya, Uphulaphula amakhwelo emihlambini? Emijelweni yakwaRubhen Yaba kukugocagoca okukhulu kwentliziyo. 5:17 UGiliyadi phesheya kweYordan walala, akalwa; UDan ke yena walibala yini na ngasezinqanaweni? UAshere wahlala ngaselunxwemeni lolwandle. Walala phantsi ngasemachwebeni alo, akalwa. 5:18 AmaZebhulon ngabantu ababenza isichenge ubomi babo ekufeni, NamaNafetali, ezindaweni eziphakamileyo zelizwe. 5:19 Kwafika ookumkani, balwa, Baza ookumkani bakwaKanan balwa ETahanaki, ngasemanzini aseMegido; Abathimba neqhosha lesilivere. 5:20 Zalwa ezulwini, Zalwa iinkwenkwezi emendweni yazo noSisera. 5:21 Umlanjana waseKishon wabakhukulisa, Umlanjana wamanyange, umlanjana waseKishon. Nyathela ngamandla, mphefumlo wam. 5:22 Aza angqisha ke ngamanqina amahashe Ngokuphala, ngokuphala anamandla kuwo. 5:23 Qalekisani iMerozi, satsho isithunywa sikaYehova, Qalekisani, qalekisani abemi bakhona. Ngokuba bengezanga kunceda uYehova, Kunceda uYehova phakathi kwamagorha. 5:24 Makasikelelwe kunezinye iintokazi uYaheli, UmkaHebhere umKeni. Makasikelelwe kuneentokazi ezisezintenteni. 5:25 Wacela amanzi, wamnika amasi, Ngesitya sezinhanha wasondeza ingqaka. 5:26 Wasa isandla sakhe esikhonkwaneni, Wasa esokunene esandweni sabasebenza kanzima, Wamkhanda uSisera, wamhlekeza intloko, Wamhlaba, wambhodloza ezintlafunweni. 5:27 Waguqa ezinyaweni zakhe, wawa, walala phantsi. Waguqa ezinyaweni zakhe, wawa; Apho waguqa khona, wawa ephelile. 5:28 Walunguza ngefestile, wamemeza Ngesithuba unina kaSisera, wathi, Ilibele yini na inqwelo yakhe yokulwa, ingafiki nje? Zihlaleleni na iinqwelo zakhe zomkhosi, zingahlokomi nje? 5:29 Aphendule alumkileyo amakhosazana akhe—Ke yena aphinde kwaelakhe, ethetha yedwa, athi, 5:30 Abafumene na? Ababi amaxhoba na? Yintombi, ziintombi ngambini kwintloko yendoda? Ngamaxhoba eengubo ezimfakamfele kuSisera? Ngamaxhoba eengubo ezimfakamfele, eengubo ezilukwe zamfakamfele? Yingubo emfakamfele, ziingubo ezimbini ezilukwe zamfakamfele ezintanyeni zamaxhoba? 5:31 Makube njalo ukubhubha kweentshaba zakho zonke, Yehova; Ke abamthandayo mababe njengokuphuma kwelanga linamandla. Lazola ke ilizwe iminyaka emashumi mane.

AbaGwebi 6

6:1 Ke kaloku oonyana bakaSirayeli benza ububi emehlweni kaYehova; wabanikela uYehova esandleni samaMidiyan iminyaka esixhenxe. 6:2 Isandla samaMidiyan saba namandla phezu kwamaSirayeli; oonyana bakaSirayeli bazilungisela imigongxo esezintabeni, nemiqolomba, neemboniselo ngenxa yamaMidiyan. 6:3 Kwathi, xa abehlwayele amaSirayeli, enyuka amaMidiyan, nama-Amaleki, nabasempumalanga; 6:4 benyuka, bawafikela, bawangqinga, bayonakalisa indyebo yelizwe kwada kwaya eGaza, abashiya nto idliwayo kwaSirayeli, nagusha, nankomo, naesile. 6:5 Ngokuba bebenyuka bona nemfuyo yabo, neentente zabo, beza benjengeenkumbi ukuba baninzi, ababa nakubalwa, bona neenkamela zabo; balingena ilizwe ukuba balonakalise. 6:6 Abhitya kunene amaSirayeli ngenxa yamaMidiyan. Bakhala oonyana bakaSirayeli kuYehova. 6:7 Kwathi, bakukhala oonyana bakaSirayeli kuYehova ngenxa yamaMidiyan, 6:8 uYehova wathuma indoda engumprofeti koonyana bakaSirayeli; yathi kubo, Utsho uYehova, uThixo kaSirayeli, ukuthi, Ndaninyusa mna eYiputa, ndanikhupha endlwini yobukhoboka; 6:9 ndanihlangula esandleni samaYiputa, nasesandleni sabaxini benu bonke, ndabagxotha phambi kwenu, ndaninika ilizwe labo; 6:10 ndathi kuni, NdinguYehova, uThixo wenu; ningaboyiki oothixo bama-Amori, enihleli ezweni lawo; analiphulaphula izwi lam. 6:11 Kweza isithunywa sikaYehova, sahlala phantsi komoki obuseOfra, kaYowashe umAbhihezere. Ke uGidiyon, unyana wakhe, wayebhula ingqolowa esixovulelweni, ukuze ayifihle kumaMidiyan. 6:12 Kwabonakala isithunywa sikaYehova kuye, sathi kuye, UYehova unawe, gorhandini linobukroti. 6:13 Wathi uGidiyon kuso, Camagu, Nkosi yam; ukuba uYehova unathi, yini na ukuba kusihlele konke oku? Iphi na yonke imisebenzi yakhe ebalulekileyo, ababesibalisela ngayo oobawo, besithi, Sasinganyuswanga nguYehova na eYiputa? Kungoku uYehova usilahlile, wasinikela esandleni samaMidiyan. 6:14 Wabheka ke uYehova kuye, wathi, Hamba ngala mandla akho, uwasindise amaSirayeli esandleni samaMidiyan. Akuthunywe ndim yini na? 6:15 Wathi yena kuye, Camagu, Nkosi yam, ndowasindisa ngantoni na amaSirayeli? Khangela, umzi wakowethu ngowona uphantsi kwaManase, nam ndinguyena mncinane endlwini kabawo. 6:16 Wathi uYehova kuye, Ndiya kuba nawe, uwabulale amaMidiyan njengandoda-nye. 6:17 Wathi kuye, Ukuba ndibabalwe nguwe, khawundenzele umqondiso wokuba nguwe othetha nam. 6:18 Musa ukumka apha, ndide ndize kuwe, ndirhole umnikelo wam, ndiwubeke phambi kwakho. 6:19 Wathi, Ndohlala mna, ude ubuye. UGidiyon waya walungisa itakane lebhokhwe, nezonka ezingenagwele ze-efa yomgubo ocoliweyo; inyama wayibeka engobozini, umhluzi wawugalela embizeni, wazisa kuye phantsi komoki, wasondeza. 6:20 Sathi kuye isithunywa sikaThixo, Thabatha inyama nezonka ezingenagwele, uzibeke phezu kweli litye, uwuphalazele kulo umhluzi. Wenjenjalo. 6:21 Saza isithunywa sikaYehova sesa incam yentonga esesandleni saso, sachukumisa inyama nezonka ezingenagwele; wenyuka umlilo elityeni, wayidla inyama nezonka ezingenagwele, saza isithunywa sikaYehova semka ke emehlweni akhe. 6:22 Wabona uGidiyon ukuba sisithunywa sikaYehova; wathi uGidiyon, Yoo! Nkosi Yehova! Nditsho ngokuba ndibonene nesithunywa sikaYehova. 6:23 UYehova wathi kuye, Uxolo malube kuwe; musa ukoyika, akuyi kufa. 6:24 UGidiyon wakha khona isibingelelo kuYehova, wathi igama laso nguYehova-uluxolo; sisekho nanamhla eOfra yama-Abhihezere. 6:25 Kwathi ngobo busuku, wathi uYehova kuye, Thabatha inkunzi yenkomo eyekayihlo, eyesibini inkunzi eminyaka isixhenxe, usidilize isibingelelo sikaBhahali sikayihlo, umgawule uAshera ongakuso; 6:26 wakhe isibingelelo kuYehova uThixo wakho encotsheni yale nqaba, usilungiselele, uthabathe eyesibini inkunzi, unyuse idini elinyukayo ngeenkuni zika-Ashera omgawuleyo. 6:27 UGidiyon wathabatha amadoda alishumi kubakhonzi bakhe; wenza njengoko wathethayo uYehova kuye. Kwathi, kuba esoyika indlu kayise namadoda aloo mzi, akenza emini, wenza ebusuku. 6:28 Avuka kusasa ngengomso amadoda aloo mzi: naso isibingelelo sikaBhahali sidiliziwe, egawulwe noAshera obengakuso, neyesibini inkunzi inyusiwe phezu kwesibingelelo esibe sakhiwe. 6:29 Yathi enye kwenye, Ngubani na lo wenze le nto? Abuza, afuna. Bathi, NguGidiyon unyana kaYowashe, lo wenze le nto. 6:30 Athi amadoda aloo mzi kuYowashe, Khupha unyana wakho, afe; ngokuba usidilizile isibingelelo sikaBhahali, wamgawula uAshera obengakuso. 6:31 Wathi uYowashe kubo bonke ababemmele, Niya kummela uBhahali nina aba na? Niya kumsindisa nina aba na? Lowo ummelayo uBhahali makabulawe; makhe kuse. Ukuba unguThixo, makazithethele, ngokuba sidiliziwe isibingelelo sakhe. 6:32 Kwathiwa loo mini unguYerubhahali, kusithiwa, uBhahali makaphikisane naye, ngokuba esidilizile isibingelelo sakhe. 6:33 Ahlangana ndawonye onke amaMidiyan, nama-Amaleki, nabasempumalanga; awela, amisa emathafeni aseYizereli. 6:34 UMoya kaYehova wangena kuGidiyon, wavuthela ngesigodlo; ahlatyelwa umkhosi, eza ama-Abhihezere, amlandela. 6:35 Wathuma abathunywa kumaManase onke, ahlatyelwa; eza nawo amlandela. Wathuma abathunywa kuma-Ashere, nakumaZebhulon, nakumaNafetali; enyuka awakhawulela. 6:36 Wathi uGidiyon kuThixo, Ukuba uyawasindisa amaSirayeli ngesandla sam, njengoko uthethileyo, 6:37 nanku ndibeke uboya obuchetyiweyo esandeni; ukuba umbethe uthe waba seboyeni bodwa, wonke umhlaba wawomile, ndiya kwazi ke ukuba uya kuwasindisa amaSirayeli ngesandla sam, njengoko uthethileyo. 6:38 Kwaba njalo ke. Wavuka kusasa ngengomso, wabukhamanga uboya, wawukhama umbethe eboyeni, kwazala indebe ngamanzi. 6:39 Wathi uGidiyon kuThixo, Mawungavuthi umsindo wakho kum, ndakuthetha okwesi sihlandlo sodwa; makhe ndilinge okwesi sihlandlo sodwa ngoboya, kome uboya bodwa, umbethe ube semhlabeni wonke. 6:40 Wenjenjalo uThixo ngobo busuku: koma uboya bodwa, umbethe waba semhlabeni wonke.

7:1 Wavuka kusasa uYerubhahali (nguGidiyon ke lowo), nabantu bonke naye, bamisa emantloko omthombo weHarodi; ke umkhosi wamaMidiyan wawungakuye, ngasentla kwenduli yakwaMore, entilini. 7:2 Wathi uYehova kuGidiyon, Baninzi abantu abanawe, kunokuba ndiwanikele amaMidiyan esandleni sabo; hleze amaSirayeli aqhayise, athi, Sisindiswe sisandla sethu. 7:3 Khawudanduluke ke ngoko ezindlebeni zabantu, uthi, Owoyikayo nogubhayo makabuye, makanyebeleze emke ezintabeni zeGiliyadi. Kwabuya ke kubo abantu abangamawaka angamashumi omabini anamabini; kwasala amawaka alishumi. 7:4 Wathi uYehova kuGidiyon, Abantu basebaninzi. Yihla nabo, uye emanzini, ndikukhethele bona apho; kothi, endithe kuwe, Lo uya kuhamba nawe, maze ahambe nawe yena; bonke endisukuba ndithi kuwe, Lo akayi kuhamba nawe, ize angabambi nawe yena. 7:5 Wehla nabantu waya emanzini; wathi uYehova kuGidiyon, Bonke abasukuba bekramncela amanzi ngolwimi lwabo, njengoko ixhaphayo inja, uze ubamise bodwa; bonke abasukuba beguqa ngamadolo abo ukuba basele, uze ubamise bodwa. 7:6 Inani labaselayo ngesandla salo emlonyeni laba ngamadoda amakhulu mathathu; bonke abanye abantu baguqa ngamadolo abo ukuba basele amanzi. 7:7 Wathi uYehova kuGidiyon, Ndiya kunisindisa ngala madoda amakhulu mathathu akramnceleyo, ndiwanikele amaMidiyan esandleni sakho. Bonke abanye abantu mabagoduke, elowo aye endaweni yakhe. 7:8 Bawuphatha abantu abo umphako ngesandla sabo, nezigodlo zabo. Wawandulula onke amadoda akwaSirayeli, ukuba ileyo iye ententeni yayo; wagcina amadoda lawo amakhulu mathathu. Umkhosi wamaMidiyan waba ngezantsi kwakhe entilini. 7:9 Kwathi ngobo busuku, uYehova wathi kuye, Vuka, uhle uye empini; ngokuba ndiyinikele esandleni sakho. 7:10 Ukuba uyoyika ukuhla, yihla nomfana wakwakho uFura, 7:11 uye empini, uve into abayithethayo; emveni koko siya komelela isandla sakho. Yihla ke uye empini. Wehla ke yena noFura, umfana wakwakhe, baya ekupheleni kwabaxhobileyo abasempini. 7:12 AmaMidiyan nama-Amaleki nabasempumalanga bonke babelele entilini benjengeenkumbi ukuba baninzi; neenkamela zawo zibe zingenakubalwa, njengentlabathi yonxweme lolwandle ukuba zininzi. 7:13 Wafika uGidiyon; nantso indoda ixelela ummelwane wayo iphupha, isithi, Yabona, ndiphuphe iphupha; ndibone kuqengqeleka isonka serhasi sisiza emkhosini wamaMidiyan, sifike ententeni, sibethe iwe, ithi bhukuqu intente, ithi bhuma. 7:14 Waphendula ummelwane wayo wathi, Loo nto kunje likrele likaGidiyon, unyana kaYowashe, indoda yakwaSirayeli; uThixo uwanikele amaMidiyan nomkhosi wonke esandleni sakhe. 7:15 Kwathi, akukuva uGidiyon ukuxelwa kwephupha nokutyhilwa kwalo, wanqula, wabuyela emkhosini wamaSirayeli, wathi, Vukani, ngokuba uYehova uyinikele impi yamaMidiyan esandleni senu. 7:16 Wawahlula aba ngamaqela omathathu amadoda lawo amakhulu mathathu; wabeka izigodlo esandleni sawo onke, nemiphanda engenanto, nezikhuni ezivuthayo ngaphakathi kwemiphanda leyo. 7:17 Wathi kuwo, Khangelani kum, nenjenje: yabonani, ndakufika ekupheleni kwempi, nothi njengoko ndenza ngako mna, nenjenjalo nina. 7:18 Ndovuthela ngezigodlo mna, nabo bonke abanam, nivuthele ke ngezigodlo nani ngeenxa zonke emkhosini, nithi, Ha! Ha! Ikrele likaYehova, likaGidiyon! 7:19 Wafika ke uGidiyon, nekhulu lamadoda elinaye, ekupheleni kwempi, ekuqalekeni komlindo ophakathi kobusuku, bakuth’ ukuthi ukumiswa abalindi. Lavuthela ngezigodlo, liyiqhekeza imiphanda esezandleni zalo. 7:20 Avuthela ke ngezigodlo amaqela omathathu, ayiqhekeza imiphanda; aziphatha izibane ezivuthayo ngezandla zawo zokhohlo, awaphatha amaxilongo ngezandla zawo zokunene, ukuba avuthele; adanduluka esithi, Ha! Ha! Ikrele likaYehova, likaGidiyon! 7:21 Ema onke ezindaweni zawo ngeenxa zonke empini. Yasaba yonke impi, yakhala, yasabisa. 7:22 Amakhulu omathathu avuthela ngezigodlo. UYehova walibhekisa ikrele lendoda kummelwane wayo, nakwimpi yonke; yasaba impi, yasinga eBhete-shita ngaseTserera, yasinga emdeni weAbhele-mehola ngaphaya kweTabhata. 7:23 Wahlatyelwa umkhosi, weza umntu wakwaSirayeli ephuma kwaNafetali, nakwa-Ashere, nakuManase wonke, wawasukela amaMidiyan. 7:24 UGidiyon wathuma abathunywa kweleentaba lonke lakwaEfrayim, esithi, Yihlani niwahlangabeze amaMidiyan, niwaphangele ukuthabatha amanzi, nise eBhete-bhara neYordan. Wahlatywa umkhosi, beza abantu bonke bakwaEfrayim, baphangela ukuwathabatha amanzi lawo, besa eBhete-bhara neYordan. 7:25 Bababamba abathetheli ababini bamaMidiyan, uOrebhe noZebhe; bambulalela uOrebhe eweni likaOrebhe, uZebhe bambulalela esixovulelweni sikaZebhe, bawasukela amaMidiyan. Beza nentloko kaOrebhe nekaZebhe kuGidiyon phesheya kweYordan.

AbaGwebi 8

8:1 Athi amadoda akwaEfrayim kuye, Yintoni na le nto uyenzileyo kuthi, yokuba ungasibizi, ukuya kulwa kwakho namaMidiyan? Babambana naye kabukhali. 8:2 Wathi kuwo, Ndenze ntoni na ngoku ngangani? Ukubhikica kwamaEfrayim akukugqithile na ngokulunga ukuvuna iidiliya komAbhihezere? 8:3 UThixo ubanikele esandleni senu abathetheli bakwaMidiyan, uOrebhe noZebhe; yintoni na endinokuyenza ngangani? Yaza ingqumbo yawo ngakuye yadamba ekulithetheni kwakhe elolizwi. 8:4 Akufika uGidiyon eYordan, ewela enamadoda amakhulu mathathu, etyhafile, esasukela noko, 8:5 wathi kumadoda aseSukoti, Khanibaphe abantu aba bandilandelayo iintendana zezonka, ngokuba batyhafile; ndisukela uZebha noTsalimuna, ookumkani bamaMidiyan. 8:6 Bathi abathetheli baseSukoti, Isandla sikaZebha noTsalimuna sesisesandleni sakho yini na, ukuba siwunike umkhosi wakho isonka? 8:7 Wathi uGidiyon, Xa kunjalo, akubanikela uYehova ooZebha noTsalimuna esandleni sam, ndoyibhalula inyama yenu ngemithana enameva yasentlango, nangamakhakakhaka. 8:8 Wenyuka khona, waya ePenuweli, wathetha kubo kwangokunjalo. Bamphendula abantu basePenuweli njengoko bamphendula ngako abantu baseSukoti. 8:9 Watsho nakubantu basePenuweli, ukuthi, Ekubuyeni kwam ngoxolo ndoyidiliza le nqaba inde. 8:10 Ke kaloku uZebha noTsalimuna bebeseKarkore, benemikhosi yabo, ngathi ngamawaka alishumi elinamahlanu ewonke amadoda, abesele kwimikhosi yonke yabasempumalanga. Kwakuwe amadoda alikhulu elinamanci mabini amawaka, arhola ikrele. 8:11 Wenyuka uGidiyon ngendlela yabahlala ezintenteni, ngasempumalanga kweNobha neYogebheha, wayibulala impi; impi leyo ibingaxhalele nto. 8:12 Basaba ooZebha noTsalimuna; wabasukela, wababamba ookumkani bobabini bamaMidiyan, ooZebha noTsalimuna; wayothusa yonke impi. 8:13 Wabuya uGidiyon unyana kaYowashe emfazweni, evela eqhineni leHeheres, 8:14 wabamba indodana yabantu baseSukoti, wayibuza; yambalela abathetheli baseSukoti, namadoda amakhulu akhona, amadoda amashumi asixhenxe anesixhenxe. 8:15 Weza ebantwini baseSukoti, wathi, Naba ooZebha noTsalimuna, enibe nindingcikiva ngabo, nisithi, Isandla sikaZebha noTsalimuna sesisesandleni sakho yini na, ukuba siwanike isonka amadoda akho atyhafileyo? 8:16 Wawathabatha amadoda amakhulu aloo mzi, nemithana enameva yasentlango namakhakakhaka, wawaqondisa ngayo amadoda aseSukoti. 8:17 Wayidiliza nenqaba ende yasePenuweli, wababulala abantu baloo mzi. 8:18 Wathi kuZebha noTsalimuna, Ebenjani na amadoda enawabulalayo eTabhore? Bathi, Abenjengawe, elowo enesithomo sonyana wokumkani. 8:19 Wathi, Babengabazalwana bam abo, oonyana bakama. Ehleli nje uYehova, ukuba benibasindisile, ngendinganibulali. 8:20 Wathi kuYetere owamazibulo kuye, Suk’ ume, ubabulale. Ke indodana leyo ayilirholanga ikrele layo; ngokuba ibisoyika, kuba ibisengumfana. 8:21 Bathi ooZebha noTsalimuna, Suk’ ume wena, usithi qwele; njengoko injalo indoda, bunjalo nobugorha bayo. Wesuka ke uGidiyon, wababulala ooZebha noTsalimuna, wazithabatha iintsimbi ezisezintanyeni zeenkamela zabo. 8:22 Athi amaSirayeli kuGidiyon, Silawule wena, kwanonyana wakho, nonyana wonyana wakho; ngokuba usisindisile esandleni samaMidiyan. 8:23 Wathi uGidiyon kuwo, Andiyi kunilawula mna; akayi kunilawula nonyana wam; nguYehova oya kunilawula nina. 8:24 Wathi uGidiyon kuwo, Ndiya kucela ngcelo-nye kuni; ndinikeni elowo ijikazi lexhoba lakhe. (Ngokuba ebenamajikazi egolide, kuba ebengamaIshmayeli.) 8:25 Athi, Sokunika ngemvume. Azandlala iingubo, aphosa khona elowo ijikazi lexhoba lakhe. 8:26 Ubunzima bamajikazi egolide awawacelayo baba liwaka elinamakhulu asixhenxe eeshekele zegolide, ngaphandle kwezaa ntsimbi namacici neengubo ezimfusa ezibe zikookumkani bamaMidiyan, nangaphandle kwezidanga ezibe zisezintanyeni zeenkamela zabo. 8:27 UGidiyon wenza ngazo iefodi, wayibeka emzini wakhe eOfra; athi onke amaSirayeli ahenyuza ngokuyilandela khona; yangumgibe kuGidiyon nakwindlu yakhe. 8:28 Athotywa amaMidiyan phambi koonyana bakaSirayeli, akaphinda aziphakamise iintloko zawo. Lazola ke ilizwe iminyaka emashumi mane ngemihla kaGidiyon. 8:29 Waya uYerubhahali, unyana kaYowashe, wahlala endlwini yakhe. 8:30 UGidiyon ebenoonyana abangamashumi asixhenxe abaphumayo esinqeni sakhe, ngokuba ebenabafazi abaninzi. 8:31 Neshweshwe lakhe, elibe likwaShekem, lamzalela unyana nalo; awamthiya igama lokuba nguAbhimeleki. 8:32 Wafa uGidiyon unyana kaYowashe, eyingwevu enkulu, wangcwatyelwa engcwabeni likaYowashe uyise, eOfra yama-Abhihezere. 8:33 Kwathi, akufa uGidiyon, babuya oonyana bakaSirayeli bahenyuza ngokulandela uBhahali; bazimisela uBhahali-bheriti, waba nguthixo wabo. 8:34 Oonyana bakaSirayeli abamkhumbulanga uYehova uThixo wabo, owabahlangulayo esandleni seentshaba zabo zonke ngeenxa zonke; 8:35 abayenzela nceba indlu kaYerubhahali, kaGidiyon, ngokokulunga konke awawenzelayo amaSirayeli.

UOrpa wamanga uninazala; ke yena uRute wanamathela kuye. 1:15 Wathi yena, Uyabona, umkhuluwakazi wakho ubuyele kubantu bakowabo, nakoothixo bakowabo; buya nawe, ulandele umkhuluwakazi wakho. 1:16 Wathi uRute, Musa akundibongoza ngokuthi mandikushiye, ndibuye, ndingakulandeli; ngokuba apho uya khona, ndiya kuya nam; apho uya kuthi vu khona, ndiya kuthi vu khona; abantu bakowenu baya kuba ngabantu bam, uThixo wakho abe nguThixo wam; 1:17 apho ufela khona, ndiya kufela khona, ndingcwatyelwe khona. Makenjenje uYehova kum, aphinde ukwenjenje: kukufa kodwa okuya kundahlula nawe. 1:18 Wabona ukuba uzimisele ukuhamba naye, wayeka ukuthetha kuye. 1:19 Bahamba ke bobabini, bada bafika eBhetelehem. Kwathi, xa bangenayo eBhetelehem, wazamazama wonke umzi ngenxa yabo, bathi, NguNahomi na lo? 1:20 Wathi kubo, Musani ukuthi ndinguNahomi; yithini ndinguMara, ngokuba uSomandla undenze ndakrakra kunene. 1:21 Ndemka mna ndizele; ke uYehova undibuyisa ndilambatha.

Bathi kuye, UYehova makakusikelele. 2:5 Wathi uBhohazi kwindodana yakhe ephethe abavuni, Yekabani na le nkazana? 2:6 Yaphendula indodana ephethe abavuni, yathi. Yinkazana engumMowabhikazi, efike noNahomi, bevela elizweni lakwaMowabhi; 2:7 yathi ke, Makhe ndibhikice, ndibuthe phakathi kwezithungu emva kwabavuni; yeza ke, yema kwakusasa kwada kwangoku; ukuhlala kwayo endlwini kukancinane. 2:8 Wathi uBhohazi kuRute, Uyeva na, ntombi yam? Musa ukuya kubhikica ntsimini yimbi; kananjalo uze ungadluli apha; namathela wenjenje kumthinjana wam lo; 2:9 amehlo akho makabe sentsimini oyivunayo wona, uwulandele; yabona, abafana bakwam ndibawisele umthetho wokuba bangakuchukumisi; xa unxaniweyo, yiya ezityeni, usele into ekhiwe ngabafana. 2:10 Wawa ngobuso bakhe, waqubuda emhlabeni, wathi kuye, Kutheni na ukuba ndibabalwe nguwe, undibuke, ndiyinkazana yolunye uhlanga nje? 2:11 Waphendula uBhohazi, wathi kuye, Ndiyixelelwe kakuhle yonke into oyenzileyo kunyokozala, emva kokufa kwendoda yakho; ukuba ushiye uyihlo nonyoko, nelizwe owazalelwa kulo, weza ebantwini obungabazi ngaphambili. 2:12 UYehova makakubuyekeze ukwenza kwakho, uzaliseke umvuzo wakho ovela kuYehova uThixo kaSirayeli, oze wazimela phantsi kwamaphiko akhe wena. 2:13 Wathi yena, Mandibabalwe nguwe, nkosi yam; ngokuba undithuthuzele, ngokuba uthethe kakuhle nomkhonzazana wakho, ndingenjengomnye wabakhonzazana bakho nje. 2:14 Wathi uBhohazi kuye, Ngexesha lokudla sondela apha, udle isonka, uncinde iviniga ngeqhekeza lakho. Wahlala phantsi ngasecaleni labavuni. Wamnika ikhweba; wadla, wahlutha, washiya. 2:15 Wesuka ke waya kubhikica; uBhohazi waluwisela umthetho ulutsha olulolwakhe, wathi, Makabhikice naphakathi kwezithungu, ningamdanisi; 2:16 nimrholele nokumrholela inxenye ezithungwini, nishiye, abhikice, ningamkhalimeli. 2:17 Wabhikica entsimini leyo kwada kwahlwa; wayibhula into abeyibhikicile, yanga yiefa yerhasi. 2:18 Wathwala, waya ekhaya; wayibona uninazala into ayibhikicileyo; wakurhola, wamnika abekushiyile akuba ehluthi. 2:19 Wathi uninazala kuye, Ubhikice phi na namhla? Ubusebenza phi na? Makasikelelwe okubukileyo wena. Wamxelela uninazala umntu abesebenza kuye, wathi, Igama lendoda endisebenze kuyo namhla nguBhohazi. 2:20 Wathi uNahomi kumolokazana wakhe, Makasikelelwe yena nguYehova, ongayekelelanga ukwenza inceba yakhe kwabaphilileyo nakwabafileyo. Wathi uNahomi kuye, Indoda leyo iyalamana nathi; ingowabakhululi bethu. 2:21 Wathi uRute umMowabhikazi, Kananjalo ithe yona kum, Uze unamathele kulutsha olulolwam, lude lulugqibe lonke uvuno olulolwam. 2:22 Wathi uNahomi kuRute umolokazana wakhe, Kulungile, ntombi yam, ukuba uphume nomthinjana wakhe, ukuze ungafikelwa mntu ukwenye intsimi. 2:23 Wanamathela kumthinjana kaBhohazi, wabhikica, kwada kwagqitywa ukuvunwa kwerhasi nokuvunwa kwengqolowa; wahlala noninazala.

Ukuba uyawukhulula ngentlawulelo, wukhulule ngentlawulelo; ukuba akuwukhululi ngentlawulelo, ndixelele ndazi; ngokuba akukho bani unokuwukhulula ngentlawulelo, ingenguwe; ndisemva kwakho mna.

1:1 Ke kaloku kwakukho ndoda ithile yaseRama, umTsofi, yakweleentaba lakwaEfrayim, egama belinguElikana, unyana kaYeroham, unyana kaElihu, unyana kaTohu, unyana kaTsufi, wakwaEfrayim. 1:2 Yayinabafazi ababini; igama lomnye lalinguHana, igama lowesibini linguPenina; uPenina ke wayenabantwana, uHana yena engenabantwana. 1:3 Indoda leyo ibinyuka ivela emzini wayo iminyaka ngeminyaka, iye kunqula, ibingelele kuYehova wemikhosi eShilo. Babekhona ke oonyana bakaEli ababini, ooHofeni noPinehasi, ababingeleli bakaYehova. 1:4 Kwathi ngemini awabingelela ngayo uElikana, wamnika uPenina umkakhe, noonyana bakhe bonke, neentombi zakhe, izabelo. 1:5 Ke uHana wamnika isabelo sabantu ababini, ngokuba ebemthanda uHana; ke uYehova ebesivalile isizalo sakhe. 1:6 Waza umkhweleteli wakhe wamana emchunuba, ukuze ade acunuke; ngokuba uYehova ebesivalile isizalo sakhe. 1:7 Wenjenjalo uElikana iminyaka ngeminyaka, xa wenyukayo ukuya endlwini kaYehova; wenjenjalo uPenina ukumqumbisa; uHana walila, akadla. 1:8 Wathi uElikana umyeni wakhe kuye, Hana, ulilelani na? Yini na ukuba ungadli? Yini na ukuba ibe mbi intliziyo yakho? Andilungile na kuwe ngaphezu koonyana abalishumi? 1:9 Wesuka uHana emveni kokuba bedlile eShilo, emveni kokuba besele. Ke kaloku uEli umbingeleli wayeleli esilalweni ngasemgubasini webhotwe likaYehova. 1:10 Wawukrakra umphefumlo kaHana, wathandaza kuYehova, wasitsho isililo. 1:11 Wabhambathisa ngesibhambathiso, wathi, Yehova wemikhosi, ukuba uthe wazikhangela ukuzikhangela oku iintsizi zomkhonzazana wakho, wandikhumbula, akwamlibala umkhonzazana wakho, wamnika umkhonzazana wakho umntwana oyindoda: ndomnika uYehova yonke imihla yobomi bakhe; isitshetshe sokucheba asiyi kusondezwa entlokweni yakhe. 1:12 Kwathi, ekuthandazeni kwakhe uzungu phambi koYehova, uEli wawugqala umlomo wakhe. 1:13 Ke yena uHana wayethethela entliziyweni yakhe, kubebezela imilebe yomlomo wakhe yodwa, ilizwi lakhe lingavakali; uEli waba uyanxila. 1:14 Wathi uEli kuye, Koda kube nini na unxila? Yisuse iwayini yakho kuwe. 1:15 Waphendula uHana, wathi, Hayi, nkosi yam, ndingumfazi omoya unobunzima, andiselanga wayini nasiselo sinxilisayo; ndiphalaza umphefumlo wam phambi koYehova. 1:16 Musa ukumbalela umkhonzazana wakho ekuthini yintombi yetshijolo; ngokuba unangoku ndithethe ngobuninzi bokukhalaza kwam nokuqunjiswa kwam. 1:17 Waphendula uEli, wathi, Hamba unoxolo; uThixo kaSirayeli makakunike isicelo sakho osicelileyo kuye. 1:18 Wathi ke yena, Umkhonzazana wakho lo makababalwe nguwe. Wahamba indlela yakhe umfazi lowo, wadla, ababa samatsha ubuso bakhe. 1:19 Bavuka kusasa ngengomso, baqubuda phambi koYehova, babuya, bangena endlwini yabo eRama. UElikana wamazi uHana umkakhe; uYehova wamkhumbula. 1:20 Kwathi ukufezeka kwemila, wamitha uHana, wazala unyana, wamthiya igama elinguSamuweli, esithi, Kungokuba ndamcelayo kuYehova. 1:21 Yenyuka indoda leyo inguElikana nendlu yayo yonke, ukuba ibingelele kuYehova umbingelelo womnyaka, inesibhambathiso sayo. 1:22 Ke yena uHana akanyukanga; ngokuba wathi kwindoda yakhe, Kokha kulunyulwe umntwana, ndandule ke ukumzisa abonakale phambi koYehova, alale khona kude kuse ephakadeni. 1:23 Wathi uElikana indoda yakhe kuye, Yenza okulungileyo emelweni akho; lala ude umlumle; ke uYehova makalimise ilizwi lakhe. Walala ke umfazi, wanyisa unyana wakhe wada wamlumla. 1:24 Wenyuka naye, akuba emlumle, eneenkunzi ezintathu ezintsha, ne-efa yomgubo, nentsuba yewayini, wamsa endlwini kaYehova eShilo, umntwana lowo esemncinane. 1:25 Bayixhela inkunzi entsha, bamsa umntwana kuEli. 1:26 Wathi, Camagu, nkosi yam! Uleli nje umphefumlo wakho, nkosi yam, ndingulaa mfazi wayemi kuwe apha, ethandaza kuYehova. 1:27 Ndandithandazela lo mntwana; undinikile ke uYehova isicelo sam endandisicela kuye; 1:28 nam ndiya kumenza oceliweyo kuYehova; yonke imihla yokubakho kwakhe, woba ngoceliweyo kuYehova. Wamnqula khona uYehova.

2:1 Wathandaza uHana, wathi, Intliziyo yam idlamkile ngoYehova, Uphondo lwam luphakanyisiwe nguYehova. Uvulekile umlomo wam kakhulu ngazo iintshaba zam; Ngokuba ndivuyele usindiso lwakho. 2:2 Akukho uyingcwele njengoYehova; Ngokuba akukho namnye ngaphandle kwakho; Akukho liwa linjengoThixo wethu. 2:3 Musani ukukwandisa ukuthetha izinto eziphakamileyo, izinto eziphakamileyo, Kungaphumi ntetho yakuhlakanipha emlonyeni wenu; Ngokuba uYehova nguThixo owazi konke, Yena nguMlinganisi wezenzo eziyincamisa. 2:4 Izaphetha zamagorha zaphukile, Abakhubeki babhinqiswe amandla. 2:5 Abahluthiyo baziqeshisela isonka, Abalambileyo baza kuphela ukulamba, Ade nongazaliyo azale isixhenxe, Onabantwana abaninzi antshwenye. 2:6 UYehova uyabulala, adlise ubomi; Uhlisela kwelabafileyo, abuye anyuse. 2:7 UYehova uyahlwempuza, atyebise; Uthoba, abuye aphakamise. 2:8 Uvusa eluthulini abasweleyo, Aphakamise amahlwempu ezaleni, Ukuba awahlalise namanene; Uwabela ilifa elisihlalo sozuko; Ngokuba zezikaYehova iintsika zehlabathi, Walimisa phezu kwazo elimiweyo. 2:9 Iinyawo zabakhe benceba uya kuzigcina, Abangendawo badake ebumnyameni; Ngokuba indoda ayeyisi ngamandla. 2:10 UYehova yena—baya kuqhiphuka umbilini ababambana naye. Uya kududumisa phezu kwabo emazulwini; UYehova uya kuzigweba iziphelo zehlabathi, Amnike ukumkani wakhe amandla, Aluphakamise uphondo lomthanjiswa wakhe. 2:11 Wesuka uElikana, waya endlwini yakhe; ke umntwana ebelungiselela kuYehova phambi kukaEli umbingeleli. 2:12 Ke kaloku oonyana bakaEli babengamatshijolo, bengamazi uYehova. 2:13 Kwanesilunga sababingeleli esiphuma ebantwini, akubon’ ukuba umntu ubingelela umbingelelo, kwaza kweza umfana wakwambingeleli, xa iphekiweyo inyama, enefolokhwe emazinyo mathathu esandleni sakhe, 2:14 wahlaba nokuba kuselukhambeni, nokuba kuseketileni, nokuba kukungxawu, nokuba kusembizeni: ibisithi yonke into ephume nefolokhwe azithabathele umbingeleli kwangayo. Benjenjalo kumaSirayeli onke abesiza eShilo apho. 2:15 Kananjalo kungekaqhunyiselwa ngamanqatha, ubesithi umfana wakwambingeleli, eze kumntu obingelelayo, athi, Ethe inyama, yoselwe umbingeleli; kuba akayi kwamkela nyama iphekiweyo kuwe, mayibe yekrwada. 2:16 Athi umntu lowo akuthi kuye, Kuya kuqhunyiselwa inene ngamanqatha kwangoku, wandule ke uzithabathele, njengoko umphefumlo wakho unqwenela ngako: athi yena, Hayi, ndinike ngoku; ukuba akundiniki, ndoyithabatha ngamandla. 2:17 Saba sikhulu kunene isono samadodana phambi koYehova; ngokuba abantu bawudela umnikelo kaYehova. 2:18 Waye uSamuweli elungiselela phambi koYehova, eyinkwenkwe ebhinqe iefodi yelinen emhlophe. 2:19 Unina ubemenzela ingubo yokwaleka, anyuke nayo, ayise kuye iminyaka ngeminyaka ekunyukeni kwakhe nendoda yakhe, ukuza kubingelela umbingelelo womnyaka. 2:20 UEli wamsikelela uElikana nomkakhe, wathi, UYehova makakunike imbewu ngalo mfazi esikhundleni soceliweyo, owacelwa kuYehova. Bahamba bagoduka. 2:21 UYehova wamvelela uHana; wamitha, wazala oonyana abathathu, neentombi ezimbini. Yakhula inkwenkwe enguSamuweli ikuYehova. 2:22 Ke kaloku uEli ubeselemdala kakhulu; wayiva yonke into ababeyenza oonyana bakhe kumaSirayeli onke, kwanokuba babelala nabafazi ababekhonza emnyango wentente yokuhlangana. 2:23 Wathi kubo, Yini na ukuba nenze izinto ezinjengezi? Kuba izenzo zenu ezibi ndiziva ngaba bantu bonke. 2:24 Hayi, nyana bam; ngokuba asiludaba luhle olu ndiluvayo mna; nibanga ukuba abantu bakaYehova bagqithise. 2:25 Ukuba umntu uthe wona umntu, uThixo uyamlamlela; ke ukuba umntu uthe wona kuYehova, ngubani na oya kumlamlela? Abaliphulaphula izwi likayise; kuba uYehova ubefuna ukubabulala. 2:26 Ke inkwenkwe, uSamuweli, yaya ikhula ngokukhula, ithandeka kuYehova nakubantu. 2:27 Kweza umntu kaThixo kuEli, wathi kuye, Utsho uYehova ukuthi, Kanene ndazityhila na kwindlu kayihlo, beseYiputa endlwini kaFaro? 2:28 Ndamnyula na ezizweni zonke zakwaSirayeli, ukuba abe ngumbingeleli kum, anyuke esibingelelweni sam, aqhumisele ngeziqhumiso, anxibe iefodi phambi kwam? Ndayinika yonke indlu kayihlo konke ukudla kwasemlilweni koonyana bakaSirayeli? 2:29 Yini na ke ukuba niwunyathelele phantsi umbingelelo wam nomnikelo wam wokudla, endiwise umthetho ngawo ekhayeni lam, usuke ubazukise oonyana bakho ngaphezu kwam, ukuze nizityebise ngelona nqatha leminikelo yonke yamaSirayeli, abantu bam? 2:30 Ngoko utsho uYehova, uThixo kaSirayeli, ukuthi, Ndatsho okunene ukuthi, Indlu yakho nendlu kayihlo yohamba phambi kwam kude kuse ephakadeni; kungoku utsho uYehova ukuthi, Oko makube lee kum; ngokuba ondizukisayo ndiya kumzukisa, abandidelayo bacukucezwe. 2:31 Yabona, imihla iyeza, endiya kuyinqumla ingalo yakho, nengalo yendlu kayihlo, kungabikho ngwevu endlwini kayihlo; 2:32 ukubone ukubandezelwa kwekhaya lam ezintweni zonke uThixo aya kuwenzela okulungileyo ngazo amaSirayeli; kungabikho ngwevu endlwini yakho imihla yonke. 2:33 Ke andiyi kunqumla mntu wonke wakwakho esibingelelweni sam, ukuze amehlo akho aphele, nomphefumlo wakho uthe; kufe kungamadoda konke ukwanda kwendlu yakho. 2:34 Nguwo lo umqondiso kuwe, oya kubafikela oonyana bakho bobabini, uHofeni noPinehasi: baya kufa bobabini ngamhla mnye. 2:35 Ndiya kuzivelisela umbingeleli othembekileyo, oya kwenza njengoko kusentliziyweni yam, nasemphefumlweni wam; ndimakhele indlu eqinileyo, ahambe phambi komthanjiswa wam yonke imihla. 2:36 Kothi, lowo useleyo endlwini yakho, eze azigobe kuye ngenxa yeqhosha lesilivere nesuntswana lesonka, athi, Khawundifake komnye umsebenzi wobubingeleli, ukuze ndidle iqhekeza lesonka.

3:1 Ke kaloku umntwana uSamuweli wayelungiselela kuYehova phambi koEli. Ilizwi likaYehova laliswelekile ngaloo mihla; kwakungekho mbono utyhilekileyo. 3:2 Kwathi ngaloo mhla, elele uEli endaweni yakhe, amehlo akhe eqale ukuba norhatyazo ukuba angabi nakubona, 3:3 singekacinywa isibane sikaThixo, uSamuweli elele ebhotweni likaYehova, apho ibikhona ityeya kaThixo, 3:4 uYehova wambiza uSamuweli; wathi yena, Ndilapha. 3:5 Wabalekela kuEli, wathi, Ndilapha; ngokuba undibizile. Wathi yena, Andikubizanga; buya uye kulala. Waya walala. 3:6 Waqokela uYehova wambiza uSamuweli. Wavuka uSamuweli, waya kuEli, wathi, Ndilapha; ngokuba undibizile. Wathi yena, Andikubizanga, nyana wam; buya uye kulala. 3:7 Ke uSamuweli ebengekamazi uYehova, libe lingekatyhileki kuye ilizwi likaYehova. 3:8 Waqokela uYehova wambiza uSamuweli okwesithathu. Wavuka weza kuEli, wathi kuye, Ndilapha; ngokuba undibizile. Waqonda uEli ukuba uYehova umbizile umntwana. 3:9 Wathi uEli kuSamuweli, Hamba uye kulala; kothi, ukuba uthe wakubiza, uthi, Thetha, Yehova, ngokuba esiva umkhonzi wakho. Waya uSamuweli, walala endaweni yakhe. 3:10 Weza uYehova, wema, wabiza njengezinye izihlandlo, wathi, Samuweli, Samuweli. Wathi uSamuweli, Thetha, ngokuba esiva umkhonzi wakho. 3:11 Wathi uYehova kuSamuweli, Uyabona, ndenza into kwaSirayeli eya kubetha zithi nzwi iindlebe zombini zabantu bonke abaya kuyiva. 3:12 Ngaloo mini ndiyakumvelisela uEli yonke into endiyithethileyo ngokusingisele kwindlu yakhe; ndiqalile, ndiya kugqiba. 3:13 Ndimxelele ukuba ndiyayigweba indlu yakhe kudekuse ephakadeni, ngenxa yobugwenxa abaziyo; ngokuba baziqalekisa oonyana bakhe, akabangxolisa. 3:14 Ngoko ndiyifungele indlu kaEli, ndathi, Inene ubugwenxa bendlu kaEli abuyi kucanyagushelwa ngambingelelo, nangamnikelo wakudla, naphakade. 3:15 Walala uSamuweli kwada kwasa, wazivula ke iingcango zendlu kaYehova. USamuweli woyika ukumxelela uEli umbono lowo. 3:16 UEli wambiza uSamuweli, wathi, Samuweli, nyana wam. 3:17 Wathi yena, Ndilapha. Wathi, Liyintoni na ilizwi elo alithethileyo kuwe? Musa ukukha undifihlele. Makenjenje uThixo kuwe, aqokele ukwenjenje, ukuba uthe wandifihlela lizwi, emazwini onke awathethileyo kuwe. 3:18 USamuweli wamxelela amazwi onke, akamfihlela nto. Wathi ke yena, NguYehova; makenze oko kulungileyo emehlweni akhe. 3:19 Wakhula uSamuweli; uYehova waba naye, akwawa phantsi nalinye ilizwi emazwini akhe onke emhlabeni. 3:20 Onke amaSirayeli, ethabathele kwaDan esa eBher-shebha, azi ukuba uSamuweli ngumprofeti othembekileyo kaYehova. 3:21 Waqokela uYehova wabonakala eShilo; ngokuba uYehova wazityhila kuSamuweli eShilo ngelizwi likaYehova.

4:1 Ilizwi likaSamuweli laya kumaSirayeli onke. Aphuma amaSirayeli, eya kuwahlangabeza amaFilisti alwe nawo; amisa iintente ngase-Ebhenezere, amaFilisti amisa eAfeki. 4:2 Aza amaFilisti akha uluhlu lokulwa namaSirayeli. Idabi lanwenwezela, abulawa amaSirayeli phambi kwamaFilisti. Kwabulawa eluhlwini ethafeni apho amadoda akumawaka amane. 4:3 Beza abantu eminqubeni, athi amadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli, Yini na ukuba uYehova asibulale namhla phambi kwamaFilisti? Masiye kuthabatha ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova eShilo, ibe kuthi, ize phakathi kwethu, isisindise esandleni seentshaba zethu. 4:4 Bathumela ke abantu eShilo; bayithabatha khona ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova wemikhosi, ohleli phezu kweekerubhi; babekhona bobabini oonyana bakaEli, uHofeni noPinehasi, benetyeya yomnqophiso kaThixo. 4:5 Kwathi, xa ifikayo ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova eminqubeni, aduma kakhulu onke amaSirayeli, umhlaba wathi ndi. 4:6 Asiva amaFilisti isandi sokuduma kwawo, athi, Sesani na esi sandi sokuduma kungaka eminqubeni yamaHebhere? Azi ke ukuba ityeya kaYehova ifikile eminqubeni. 4:7 Oyika amaFilisti, kuba ebesithi, UThixo ufikile eminqubeni. Athi, Yeha ke thina! Ngokuba akuzanga kube nje ngaphambili. 4:8 Yeha ke thina! Ngubani na oya kusihlangula esandleni saba thixo babungangamsha bungaka? Ngaba thixo aba babulala amaYiputa ngezibetho zonke entlango. 4:9 Yomelelani, nibe ngamadoda, nina maFilisti, hleze nikhonze kumaHebhere, njengokuba ekhonze kuni wona. Yibani ngamadoda, nilwe. 4:10 Alwa ke amaFilisti, awabulala amaSirayeli; asaba ke wona, waya elowo ententeni yakhe; abulawa kakhulu kunene. Kwawa kumaSirayeli amawaka angamashumi amathathu angumqikela. 4:11 Kwathinjwa netyeya yomnqophiso kaThixo; bafa oonyana bobabini bakaEli, uHofeni noPinehasi. 4:12 Kwabaleka indoda yakwaBhenjamin, ivela emkhosini, yafika eShilo kwangaloo mini, iingubo zayo zikrazukile, inomhlaba entloko. 4:13 Yafika; nanko uEli ehleli esihlalweni ecaleni kwendlela, ebonisela; ngokuba ibigubha intliziyo yakhe ngenxa yetyeya kaThixo. Yafika indoda leyo, yawuxelela umzi; wasitsho isililo wonke umzi. 4:14 Waliva uEli izwi lesililo, wathi, Lelani na eli lizwi lale ntlokoma? Indoda leyo yakhawuleza, yeza yamxelela uEli. 4:15 Ke kaloku uEli ebeminyaka imashumi asithoba anesibhozo ezelwe, amehlo akhe enorhatyazo, engenakubona. 4:16 Yathi indoda leyo kuEli, Ndingulo uvela emkhosini mna, ndisabe emkhosini namhlanje. Wathi yena, Kuhle ntoni na, nyana wam? 4:17 Waphendula umbiki, wathi, Asabile amaSirayeli phambi kwamaFilisti, kananjalo babulewe kakhulu abantu, kananjalo oonyana bakho bobabini bafile, ooHofeni noPinehasi; ityeya kaThixo ithinjiwe. 4:18 Kwathi, akukhankanya ityeya kaThixo, wawa esihlalweni sakhe, eqethuka ngomva ngasecaleni kwesango, waphuka ilungu lentamo, wafa; ngokuba indoda leyo ibiselilixhego; inzima. Yayiwalawula amaSirayeli iminyaka emashumi mane. 4:19 Ke kaloku umolokazana wayo, umkaPinehasi, ebemithi, eza kuzala. Wathi akuziva iindaba zokuthinjwa kwetyeya kaThixo, nezokufa koyise wendoda nokwendoda yakhe, waguqa, wazala; ngokuba yamfikela inimba. 4:20 Ngexesha lokufa kwakhe, abafazi ababemi phezu kwakhe bathetha, bathi, Musa ukoyika, ngokuba uzele unyana. Akaphendula, akakhathala koko. 4:21 Wathi umntwana nguIkabhode, esithi, Uzuko lumkile kwaSirayeli, ngenxa yokuthinjwa kwetyeya kaThixo, nangenxa yoyise wendoda, nendoda yakhe. 4:22 Wathi, Uzuko lumkile kwaSirayeli; kuba ityeya kaThixo ithinjiwe.

5:1 AmaFilisti ayithabatha ityeya kaThixo, esuka nayo e-Ebhenezere, aya nayo eAshdode. 5:2 Ayithabatha amaFilisti ityeya kaThixo, aya nayo endlwini kaDagon, ayimisa ecaleni koDagon. 5:3 Bavuka kusasa ngengomso abaseAshdode, nanko uDagon ewile ngobuso emhlabeni phambi kwetyeya kaYehova. Bamthabatha uDagon, babuya bammisa endaweni yakhe. 5:4 Bavuka kusasa ngengomso, nanko uDagon ewile ngobuso emhlabeni phambi kwetyeya kaYehova, intloko kaDagon nezandla zakhe zozibini zinqumkile, zisembundwini womnyango, kusele isikhondo sodwa. 5:5 Ngenxa yoko ababingeleli bakaDagon, nabo bonke abangenayo endlwini kaDagon, abanyatheli embundwini womnyango wendlu kaDagon eAshdode unanamhla. 5:6 Saba nzima isandla sikaYehova phezu kwabaseAshdode, sabaphanzisa, sababetha ngamathumba, iAshdode ke nemida yayo. 5:7 Akubona amadoda aseAshdode ukuba kunjalo, athi, Ityeya yoThixo kaSirayeli mayingahlali kuthi; ngokuba isandla sakhe sinzima phezu kwethu, naphezu koDagon uthixo wethu. 5:8 Athumela ahlanganisela kuwo zonke izikhulu zamaFilisti, athi, Siyithini na ityeya yoThixo kaSirayeli? Zathi, Mayijike iye eGati. Ayijika ke ityeya yoThixo kaSirayeli. 5:9 Kwathi emveni kokujikwa kwayo, isandla sikaYehova saba phezu kwaloo mzi, sasisaqunge esikhulu kunene; wababulala abantu baloo mzi, kwathabathela kwabancinane kwesa kwabakhulu, bathi gqobhogqobho amathumba. 5:10 Bayithumela ityeya kaThixo e-Ekron. Kwathi, xa ifikayo ityeya kaThixo e-Ekron, bakhala abase-Ekron, besithi, Bayijikele kuthi ityeya yoThixo kaSirayeli, ukuba isibulale thina nabantu bakowethu. 5:11 Bathumela, bazihlanganisa zonke izikhulu zamaFilisti, bathi, Yimkiseni ityeya yoThixo kaSirayeli, ibuyele endaweni yayo, ingasibulali thina, nabantu bakowethu; ngokuba ukuqungaqunga kokufa bekukho kuwo wonke umzi, besinzima kunene isandla sikaThixo khona. 5:12 Abantu abangafanga babethwa ngamathumba; kwenyuka kwaya ezulwini ukuzibika komzi.

6:1 Ityeya kaYehova yaba semhlabeni wamaFilisti iinyanga ezisixhenxe. 6:2 AmaFilisti abiza ababingeleli nabavumisi, esithi, Siyithini na ityeya kaYehova? Saziseni into esingayigodusa nayo, iye endaweni yayo. 6:3 Bathi, Ukuba iyagoduswa ityeya yoThixo kaSirayeli, musani ukuyigodusa ilambatha; ukuyibuyisela kuye, noyibuyisela inedini letyala. Niya kuphiliswa; kuya kwandula ukwazeka kuni, ukuba bekungani na ukuba isandla sakhe singesuki kuni. 6:4 Athi, Liyintoni na idini letyala esolibuyisela kuye? Bathi, Lingamathumba egolide amahlanu, neempuku zegolide ezintlanu, ngokwenani lezikhulu zamaFilisti; ngokuba sinye isibetho kuni nonke, nakwizikhulu zenu. 6:5 Ize niyenze imifanekiso yamathumba enu, nemifanekiso yeempuku zenu ezilonakalisayo ilizwe, nimzukise uThixo kaSirayeli; mhlawumbi wosenza lula isandla sakhe kuni, nakoothixo benu, nakwilizwe lenu. 6:6 Yini na ukuba niziqaqadekise iintliziyo zenu, njengokuba aziqaqadekisayo iintliziyo zawo amaYiputa noFaro? Akuthanga na, akuzenza izenzo ezincamisayo kuwo, amaYiputa awandulula amaSirayeli, emka ke? 6:7 Thabathani ngoko, nenze inqwelo entsha, nithabathe iimazi ezimbini ezintsha ezanyisayo, ezingazanga zibekwe dyokhwe, nizibophe enqwelweni, niwanqande amathole azo kuzo, aye ekhaya. 6:8 Noyithabatha ke ityeya kaYehova, niyibeke enqwelweni; neempahla zegolide enizibuyisela kuye, ezilidini letyala, nizibeke etyeyeni ecaleni layo, niyindulule ihambe. 6:9 Nize nikhangele: ukuba ithe yenyuka ngendlela yomda wayo, yaya eBhete-shemeshe, woba nguye osenzele obu bubi bukhulu; ke ukuba kuthe akwabo njalo, sothi sazi ukuba asibethwe sisandla sakhe, sihlelwe sisihlo. 6:10 Enjenjalo amadoda; athabatha iimazi ezintsha ezanyisayo zambini, azibopha enqwelweni, awavalela amathole azo ekhaya. 6:11 Ayibeka ityeya kaYehova enqwelweni, netyeya ineempuku zegolide nemifanekiso yamathumba awo. 6:12 Iimazi ezintsha zathi ngqo ngendlela, ngendlela yaseBhete-shemeshe, zahamba ngomendo, zihamba zinxakama, azanxaxhela ekunene nasekholo; izikhulu zamaFilisti zizilandela, zada zaya emdeni waseBhete-shemeshe. 6:13 AbaseBhete-shemeshe babevuna ingqolowa entilini; bawaphakamisa amehlo abo, bayibona ityeya, bavuya bakuyibona. 6:14 Inqwelo yafika entsimini kaYoshuwa waseBhete-shemeshe, yema khona. Bekukho ilitye elikhulu khona. Bayicanda imithi yenqwelo, bazinyusa iimazi ezintsha ezo zalidini elinyukayo kuYehova. 6:15 AbaLevi bayithula ityeya kaYehova, netyeya ebinayo inempahla yegolide, bazibeka elityeni elo likhulu. Amadoda aseBhete-shemeshe ke anyusa amadini anyukayo, abingelela imibingelelo ngaloo mini kuYehova. 6:16 Zabona izikhulu ezihlanu zamaFilisti, zabuyela e-Ekron kwangaloo mini. 6:17 Ngawo la amathumba egolide awawabuyiselayo amaFilisti kuYehova, alidini letyala: elaseAshdode lalilinye, elaseGaza lalilinye, elaseAshkelon lalilinye, elaseGati lalilinye, elase-Ekron lalilinye; 6:18 kunye neempuku zegolide ngokwenani lemizi yonke yamaFilisti yezikhulu ezihlanu, kuthabathela emizini enqatyisiweyo, kuse kwimizana yabasemaphandleni; kuse etyeni elikhulu, abayimisa kulo ityeya kaYehova, lilingqina unanamhla entsimini kaYoshuwa waseBhete-shemeshe. 6:19 Wabetha emadodeni aseBhete-shemeshe, ngokuba ayikhangakhangelayo ityeya kaYehova; wabulala ebantwini abo amadoda angamashumi asixhenxe emadodeni angamawaka angamashumi amahlanu. Benza isijwili abantu, ngokuba uYehova ebabulele abantu ngobulalo olukhulu. 6:20 Athi amadoda aseBhete-shemeshe, Ngubani na onako ukuma phambi koYehova, lo Thixo uyingcwele? Uya kunyuka aye kubani na, ukusuka kwakhe kuthi? 6:21 Athuma abathunywa kubemi baseKiriyati-yeharim, esithi, AmaFilisti ayibuyisile ityeya kaYehova; yihlani, nize kuyinyusela kuni.

Wabalawula uSamuweli oonyana bakaSirayeli eMizpa. 7:7 Eva amaFilisti ukuba oonyana bakaSirayeli bahlanganiselene eMizpa, zenyuka izikhulu zamaFilisti, zawaphumela amaSirayeli. Beva oonyana bakaSirayeli, bawoyika amaFilisti. 7:8 Bathi oonyana bakaSirayeli kuSamuweli, Musa ukuyeka ukusikhalela kuYehova uThixo wethu, asisindise esandleni samaFilisti. 7:9 USamuweli wathabatha itakane elanyayo, walinyusa lalidini elinyukayo lonke liphola kuYehova. Wakhala uSamuweli kuYehova ngenxa yamaSirayeli; uYehova wamphendula. 7:10 Kwathi, xa uSamuweli alinyusayo idini elinyukayo, amaFilisti asondela, esiza kulwa namaSirayeli. UYehova wadudumisa ngezwi elikhulu loo mini kumaFilisti, wawaqungaqunga; abulawa phambi kwamaSirayeli. 7:11 Aphuma amadoda akwaSirayeli eMizpa, awasukela amaFilisti, awabulala, esa phantsi kweBhete-kare. 7:12 USamuweli wathabatha ilitye, walimisa phakathi kweMizpa neShen, wathi igama lalo yiEbhenezere; wathi, Kude kwaba lapha uYehova esinceda. 7:13 Athotywa ke amaFilisti, akaba saphinda eze emdeni wakwaSirayeli; sachasana namaFilisti isandla sikaYehova yonke imihla kaSamuweli. 7:14 Yabuyiselwa kumaSirayeli imizi leyo abeyithimbile amaFilisti kumaSirayeli, ithabathela e-Ekron yesa eGati; nemida yayo ayihla ngula amaSirayeli esandleni samaFilisti. Laxola ke phakathi kwamaSirayeli nama-Amori. 7:15 USamuweli waye engumlawuli kumaSirayeli yonke imihla yobomi bakhe; 7:16 ehamba iminyaka ngeminyaka, ejikeleza eBheteli, naseGiligali, naseMizpa, ewalawula amaSirayeli kwezo ndawo zonke; 7:17 ebuyela eRama, ngokuba yayikhona indlu yakhe. Wawalawula nakhona amaSirayeli, wakha isibingelelo kuYehova khona.

Wathandaza uSamuweli kuYehova. 8:7 Wathi uYehova kuSamuweli, Liphulaphule izwi labantu entweni yonke abayithethayo kuwe; ngokuba ingenguwe abamgibileyo, bagibe mna, ukuze ndingabi ngukumkani kubo. 8:8 Ngokwezenzo zonke abazenzileyo, kuselokwemini endabanyusayo eYiputa kwada kwaba namhla, bandishiya, bakhonza thixo bambi, benjenjalo namhla nakuwe. 8:9 Liphulaphule ngoko izwi labo; kodwa uze ubaqononondise kakuhle, ubaxelele isiko aya kuphatha ngalo ukumkani oya kuba ngukumkani wabo. 8:10 Wabaxelela ke uSamuweli abo bantu babebiza ukumkani kuye onke amazwi kaYehova. 8:11 Wathi, Lilo eli isiko lokumkani oya kuba ngukumkani kuni: Oonyana benu uya kubathabatha abamisele yena ezinqwelweni zakhe zokulwa, nasemahasheni akhe akhwelwayo, babaleke phambi kwenqwelo yakhe; 8:12 abamisele yena babe ngabathetheli bamawaka, nabathetheli bamashumi ngamahlanu, balime amasimi akhe, bavune ukutya kwakhe, benze iimpahla zakhe zemfazwe neempahla zenqwelo yakhe. 8:13 Iintombi zenu wozithabatha zibe ngabaqholikazi, nabapheki, nabosi bezonka. 8:14 Amasimi enu wowathabatha, nezidiliya zenu, nezinquma zenu ezona zilungileyo, azinike abakhonzi bakhe; 8:15 nesishumi sembewu yenu asibize, nesezidiliya zenu, asinike ababusi bakhe nabakhonzi bakhe. 8:16 Abakhonzi benu uya kubathabatha, nabakhonzazana benu, namadodana enu, namaesile enu, enze umsebenzi wakhe; 8:17 isishumi sempahla yenu emfutshane asibize; nina nibe ngabakhonzi bakhe. 8:18 Niya kukhala ngaloo mini ngokumkani wenu enazinyulelayo, anganiphenduli uYehova ngaloo mini. 8:19 Abavuma abantu ukuliphulaphula ilizwi likaSamuweli; bathi, Hayi, inene, masibe nokumkani; 8:20 nathi sibe njengeentlanga ezi zonke, asilawule ukumkani wethu, aphume phambi kwethu, alwe iimfazwe zethu. 8:21 Waweva uSamuweli onke amazwi abantu, wawathetha ezindlebeni zikaYehova. 8:22 Wathi uYehova kuSamuweli, Liphulaphule izwi labo, ubenzele ukumkani. Wathi uSamuweli kumadoda akwaSirayeli, Hambani niye elowo emzini wakhe.

Wacanda nasezweni laseShahalim, azabakho; wacanda nasezweni lakwaBhenjamin, abazifumana. 9:5 Bakufika ezweni lakwaTsufi, uSawule wathi kumfana obenaye, Hamba sibuye, hleze ubawo azincame iimazi zamaesile, abe nesithukuthezi ngathi. 9:6 Wathi ke yena kuye, Uyabona ke, kulo mzi kukho umntu kaThixo; ngumntu ozukileyo; konke akuthethayo kuyenzeka ngenene. Makhe siye khona ke, mhlawumbi angasibonisa indlela yethu esohamba ngayo. 9:7 Wathi uSawule kumfana lowo, Yabona, sihamba nje, siya kumnika ntoni na umntu lowo? Kuba isonka siphelile empahleni yethu; akukho sipho singasisa kumntu kaThixo. Into esinayo yintoni na? 9:8 Waphinda umfana wamphendula uSawule, wathi, Nanku kufumaneke esandleni sam isahlulo sesine seshekele yesilivere; ndosinika umntu kaThixo, asibonise indlela yethu. 9:9 Ngaphambili, kwaSirayeli, umntu xa aya kubuza kuThixo ubesithi, Hamba siye kwimboni; ngokuba onguprofeti namhla bekusithiwa yimboni ngenxa engaphambili. 9:10 Wathi uSawule kumfana lowo, Lihle ilizwi lakho; hamba siye. Bahamba baya kuloo mzi, apho umntu kaThixo wayekhona. 9:11 Bathi benyuka eqhineni lomzi, baqubisana nomthinjana, uphuma usiya kukha amanzi; bathi kuwo, Ikho na apha imboni? 9:12 Wabaphendula, wathi, Ikho, nantso phambi kwenu; khawulezani ngoku, kuba ifike namhlanje kulo mzi, ngokuba abantu banombingelelo namhla esigangeni; 9:13 xa ningena kulo mzi, noyifumana ingekenyuki iye kudla esigangeni; kuba abayi kudla abantu ingekafiki; ngokuba usikelelwa yiyo umbingelelo, baze badle emveni koko abamenyiweyo; nyukani ngoku, ngokuba noyifumana ngoku. Benyuka ke baya kuloo mzi. 9:14 Bakubona ukuba bayangena kuloo mzi, nanko uSamuweli ephuma equbisana nabo, eza kunyuka aye esigangeni. 9:15 Ke kaloku uYehova wayeyityhilele indlebe kaSamuweli ngosuku olungaphambi kokuza kukaSawule, esithi, 9:16 Ngeli xesha ngomso, ndiya kuthumela kuwe indoda yasezweni lakwaBhenjamin, ukuze uyithambise, ibe yinganga yabantu bam amaSirayeli, ibasindise abantu bam esandleni samaFilisti; ngokuba ndibabonile abantu bam; kuba ukukhala kwabo kufikile kum. 9:17 USamuweli wambona uSawule. UYehova wamphendula, wathi, Nantso loo ndoda ndibe ndithethe kuwe ngayo. Yiyo eya kuphatha ubukhosi phezu kwabantu bam. 9:18 Wasondela uSawule kuSamuweli esangweni, wathi, Khawundixelele, iphi na apha indlu yemboni? 9:19 USamuweli wamphendula uSawule, wathi, Ndim imboni; nyuka phambi kwam uye esigangeni, nidle nam namhla, ndikundulule ngomso, ndikuxelele konke okusentliziyweni yakho. 9:20 Ke iimazi zamaesile esekuntsuku ntathu namhla zikulahlekile, musa ukuyibekela kuzo intliziyo yakho; ngokuba zifunyenwe. Kokukabani na konke okunqwenelekayo kwaSirayeli? Asikokwakho na, nokwendlu yonke kayihlo? 9:21 Waphendula uSawule, wathi, AndingumBhenjamin yini na, wesizwe esincinanana kwaSirayeli? Nomzalwane wakowethu awuphantsi na emizalwaneni yonke yesizwe sakwaBhenjamin? Yini na ukuba uthethe ilizwi elinje kum? 9:22 USamuweli wamthabatha uSawule nomfana lowo, wabangenisa egumbini, wabanika indawo yobukhulu phakathi kwabamenyiweyo abo, bengamadoda akumashumi amathathu. 9:23 Wathi uSamuweli kumpheki, Ethe isabelo endakunikayo, ndathi kuwe, Sibeke. 9:24 Wawuzisa umlenze lowo nento ephezu kwawo, wabeka phambi koSawule. Wathi uSamuweli, Nantso into endikubekeleyo, ibekiwe phambi kwakho, yidla; ngokuba ibigcinelwe wena, ukuba ibe yeyeli xesha, kususela koko ndathi, Ndibamemile abantu. Wadla uSawule noSamuweli ngaloo mini. 9:25 Behla esigangeni apho, beza phakathi komzi; wathetha noSawule phezu kwendlu. 9:26 Bavuka kusasa; kwathi, xa kunyuka isifingo, uSamuweli wamemeza kuSawule phezu kwendlu, esithi, Vuka, ndikugoduse. Wavuka uSawule; baphuma baya phandle bobabini, yena noSamuweli. 9:27 Behlile, baya ekupheleni komzi, wathi uSamuweli kuSawule, Yitsho kumfana lo agqithele phambi kwethu (wagqitha ke); khawume wena ngoku, ndikuvise ilizwi likaThixo.

Yabona, ukuyekile uyihlo ukuthetha ngeemazi zamaesile ezo; unesithukuthezi ngani, esithi, Ndiya kuthini na ngonyana wam. 10:3 Ugqithile apho, woqhubela phambili, ufike kumoki weTabhore, uhlangane khona namadoda amathathu enyuka esiya kuThixo eBheteli, enye ithwele amatakane amathathu, enye ithwele iintenda zezonka ezithathu, enye ithwele intsuba yewayini. 10:4 Okubuza ukuphila kwakho, akunike izonka ezibini; uzithabathe ezandleni zawo. 10:5 Emveni koko uya kufika eGibheha kaThixo, apho kukhoyo ikampu yamaFilisti; kuthi, xa ufikileyo emzini apho, uthane nqiphu negqiza labaprofeti, lisihla livela esigangeni, phambi kwalo ingumrhubhe, nengqongqo, nogwali, nohadi, beprofeta. 10:6 UMoya kaThixo wokufikela ngamandla, uprofete ndawonye nabo, uguquke ube mntu wumbi. 10:7 Kothi, xa ithe yafika kuwe loo miqondiso, uzenzele njengoko siya kufumana ngako isandla sakho; ngokuba uThixo unawe; 10:8 uhle uye phambi kwam eGiligali. Yabona, ndiyehla, ndiza kuwe, ukuze ndinyuse amadini anyukayo, ndibingelele imibingelelo yoxolo. Wolinda imihla esixhenxe ndide ndize kuwe, ndikwazise oko uya kukwenza. 10:9 Wathi uSawule, akuthi khwitshi ukuba emke kuSamuweli, uThixo wamguqula, wanantliziyo yimbi. Yafika yonke loo miqondiso kwangayo loo mini. 10:10 Bafika eGibheha apho, nalo igqiza labaprofeti limkhawulela; wamfikela ngamandla uMoya kaThixo, waprofeta phakathi kwabo. 10:11 Kwathi, bakumbona bonke ababemazi ngaphambili, eprofeta ndawonye nabaprofeti, bathi abantu omnye komnye, Uhliwe yintoni na unyana kaKishe? Ukubaprofeti noSawule na? 10:12 Waphendula umntu wakhona, wathi, Ngubani na uyise wabo? Ngenxa yoko kwabakho umzekeliso wokuthi, Ukubaprofeti noSawule na? 10:13 Wagqiba ukuprofeta, waya esigangeni. 10:14 Wathi uyisekazi kaSawule kuye, nakumfana lowo, Beniye phi na? Wathi, Besifuna iimazi zamaesile; sakubona ukuba asizifumani, saya kuSamuweli. 10:15 Wathi uyisekazi kaSawule, Khawundixelele ukuba utheni na uSamuweli kuni. 10:16 Wathi uSawule kuyisekazi, Usixelele ukuba zifunyenwe iimazi zamaesile. Ke ngobukumkani, abethethe ngabo uSamuweli, akamxelelanga nto. 10:17 Ke kaloku uSamuweli wabahlabela umkhosi abantu; 10:18 beza kuYehova eMizpa. Wathi koonyana bakaSirayeli, Utsho uYehova, uThixo kaSirayeli, ukuthi, Ndawanyusa mna amaSirayeli eYiputa, ndanihlangula esandleni samaYiputa, nasesandleni sezikumkani zonke ezanixinayo. 10:19 Namhla ke nimcekisile nina uThixo wenu, owanisindisayo ebubini benu bonke, nasekubandezelweni konke, nathi kuye, Simisele ukumkani phezu kwethu. Kaloku ke zimiseni phambi koYehova ngokwezizwe zenu, nangokwamawaka enu. 10:20 Wazisondeza ke uSamuweli zonke izizwe zakwaSirayeli, kwathatyathwa isizwe sakwaBhenjamin. 10:21 Wasisondeza isizwe sakwaBhenjamin ngokwemizalwane yaso, kwathatyathwa umzalwane wakwaMatri, kwathatyathwa ke uSawule unyana kaKishe. Bamfuna, abamfumana. 10:22 Babuya babuza kuYehova, bathi, Uselefikile na umntu? Wathi uYehova, Nanko ezimele yena phantsi kwempahla. 10:23 Babaleka, bamthabatha apho. Wema phakathi kwabantu, wamde kubantu bonke, ethabathela emagxeni anyuse. 10:24 Wathi uSamuweli kubantu bonke, Niyambona na lo unyuliweyo nguYehova; ukuba akukho unjengaye ebantwini bonke? Baduma bonke abantu, bathi, Makadle ubomi ukumkani! 10:25 USamuweli walithetha ebantwini isiko lobukumkani, walibhala encwadini, wayibeka phambi koYehova. USamuweli wabandulula abantu bonke; baya elowo endlwini yakhe. 10:26 Naye uSawule waya endlwini yakhe eGibheha; lahamba naye iqela elinobukroti, elintliziyo zichukunyisiweyo nguThixo. 10:27 Ke bona abangamatshijolo bathi, wothini na ukusisindisa lo? Bamdela; abamzisela mnikelo. Yena wanga akeva.

11:1 Ke kaloku wenyuka uNahashe, umAmon, wayingqinga iYabheshe yaseGiliyadi. Athi onke amadoda aseYabheshe kuNahashe, Simisele umnqophiso, sikukhonze. 11:2 Wathi kuwo uNahashe umAmon, Ndiya kunimisela umnqophiso wokuthi, ndinikrukre nonke iliso lasekunene, ndikubeke oko phezu kwamaSirayeli onke, kube sisingcikivo. 11:3 Athi kuye amadoda amakhulu aseYabheshe, Siyeke iintsuku ezisixhenxe, sithume abathunywa emideni yonke yakwaSirayeli; sithi, ukuba akubangakho usisindisayo, siphume size kuwe. 11:4 Bafika abathunywa eGibheha yakwaSawule, bawathetha loo mazwi ezindlebeni zabantu; baliphakamisa bonke abantu izwi labo, balila. 11:5 Nanko uSawule, ehamba emva kweenkomo, evela ezindle; wathi uSawule, Banantoni na abantu, belila nje? Bamxelela ke amazwi amadoda aseYabheshe. 11:6 UMoya kaYehova wamfikela ngamandla uSawule ekuwaveni kwakhe la mazwi, wavutha umsindo wakhe kunene. 11:7 Wathabatha iinkomo zambini, wazityatya, wathumela emideni yonke yakwaSirayeli ngesandla sabathunywa, esithi, Ongathanga aphume alandele uSawule, alandele uSamuweli, ziya kwenjiwa nje iinkomo zakhe. Abantu bafikelwa kukunkwantya nguYehova, baphuma njengandoda-nye. 11:8 Wababala eBhezeki; oonyana bakaSirayeli bangamawaka angamakhulu amathathu, namadoda akwaYuda angamawaka angamashumi amathathu. 11:9 Bathi kubathunywa abafikileyo, Yitshoni kumadoda aseYabheshe yaseGiliyadi ukuthi, Ngomso ukufudumala kwelanga, niya kukhululwa. Bemka abathunywa, bawaxelela amadoda aseYabheshe; avuya ke. 11:10 Athi amadoda aseYabheshe, Ngomso siya kuphuma size kuni; nenze kuthi ngako konke okulungileyo emehlweni enu. 11:11 Kwathi ngengomso uSawule wabamisa abantu bazizihlwele ezithathu, bafika phakathi kwempi ngomlindo wokusa, bawabulala ama-Amon yada yafudumala imini. Kwathi aseleyo aphangalaliswa; akwasala kuwo nokuba abe mabini ndaweni-nye. 11:12 Bathi abantu kuSamuweli, Ngoobanina abo babesithi, USawule uya kuba ngukumkani kuthi na? Waziseni loo madoda, siwabulale. 11:13 Wathi uSawule, Makungabulawa mntu namhla; ngokuba namhla uYehova wenze usindiso kwaSirayeli. 11:14 Wathi uSamuweli ebantwini, Hambani, siye eGiligali, sibusungule khona ubukumkani. 11:15 Baya ke bonke abantu eGiligali; bamenza ukumkani uSawule phambi koYehova eGiligali apho; wabingelela apho imibingelelo yoxolo phambi koYehova. Bavuya kunene apho ooSawule namadoda onke akwaSirayeli.

12:1 Wathi uSamuweli kumaSirayeli onke, Yabonani, ndiliphulaphule izwi lenu ngako konke enakuthethayo kum, ndanimisela ukumkani. 12:2 Kaloku nanko ukumkani ehamba phambi kwenu. Ke mna ndaluphele, ndiyingwevu; nabo oonyana bam benani. Mna ndibambe phambi kwenu kwasebuncinaneni bam unanamhla. 12:3 Nanku ndikho; ngqinani ngam phambi koYehova, naphambi komthanjiswa wakhe: ndathabatha nkomo kabani na? ndathabatha esile likabani na? ndacudisa bani na? ndavikiva bani na? ndathabatha esandleni sikabani na ucamagusho lokumfamekisa amehlo am? ndonibuyisela. 12:4 Athi, Akusicudisanga, akusivikivanga, akuthabathanga nto sandleni samntu. 12:5 Wathi kubo, UYehova ulingqina ngani, nomthanjiswa wakhe ulingqina namhla, ukuba anifumananga nto sandleni sam. Bathi, Ulingqina. 12:6 Wathi uSamuweli ebantwini, NguYehova owenza ooMoses noAron; owenyusa ooyihlo ezweni laseYiputa. 12:7 Kaloku ke yimani, ndimangalelane nani phambi koYehova ngayo yonke imisebenzi yobulungisa kaYehova, ayenzileyo kuni nakooyihlo. 12:8 Xenikweni uYakobi waya eYiputa, bakhala ooyihlo kuYehova: uYehova wathuma ooMoses noAron, babakhupha ooyihlo eYiputa, bababeka kule ndawo. 12:9 Bamlibala uYehova uThixo wabo; wathengisa ngabo esandleni sikaSisera, umthetheli-mkhosi waseHatsore, nasesandleni samaFilisti, nakwesokumkani wakwaMowabhi, balwa nabo. 12:10 Bakhala kuYehova, bathi, Sonile, ngokuba samlahlayo uYehova, sakhonza ooBhahali nooAshtaroti; kaloku ke sihlangule esandleni seentshaba zethu, sikukhonze. 12:11 UYehova wathuma ooYerubhahali, noBhedan, noYifeta, noSamuweli, wanihlangula esandleni seentshaba zenu ngeenxa zonke, nahlala nonwabile. 12:12 Kwathi nakubona uNahashe, ukumkani woonyana baka-Amon, esiza kulwa nani, nathi kum, Hayi, masilawulwe ngukumkani, uYehova uThixo wenu engukumkani wenu. 12:13 Nanko ke ukumkani enimnyulileyo, enimbizileyo; yabonani, uYehova unimisele ukumkani. 12:14 Anaba beniya kumoyika uYehova, nimkhonze, niliphulaphule ilizwi lakhe, ningawuphikisi umlomo kaYehova, nithane mbende noYehova uThixo wenu, nina nokumkani onilawulayo, ukuze kulunge. 12:15 Ke ukuba anithanga niliphulaphule izwi likaYehova, ukuba nithe nawuphikisa umlomo kaYehova, isandla sikaYehova sonichasa, njengokuba sachasa ooyihlo. 12:16 Nangoku yimani, niyibone le nto inkulu, ayenzayo uYehova phambi kwenu. 12:17 Akuvunwa ingqolowa yini na namhla? Ndiya kunqula uYehova ahlise iindudumo nemvula; nazi, nibone ukuba ububi benu bukhulu enibenzileyo phambi koYehova ngokubiza ukumkani. 12:18 USamuweli wanqula uYehova; waza uYehova wahlisa iindudumo nemvula ngaloo mini. Bonke abantu bamoyika kunene uYehova noSamuweli. 12:19 Bathi bonke abantu kuSamuweli, Bathandazele abakhonzi bakho kuYehova uThixo wakho, ukuze singafi; ngokuba ezonweni zethu songeze ububi bokubiza ukumkani. 12:20 Wathi uSamuweli ebantwini, Musani ukoyika. Nina nibenzile bonke obo bubi; noko ke musani ukutyeka ekumlandeleni uYehova; mkhonzeni uYehova ngentliziyo yenu yonke. 12:21 Ize ningatyeki; ngokuba ningaba nilandela izinto ezililize, ezingenakunyusa, ezingenakuhlangula, ngokuba zililize. 12:22 Kuba uYehova akayi kubashiya abantu bakhe, ngenxa yegama lakhe elikhulu; ngokuba kwakholeka kuYehova ukunenza abantu bakhe. 12:23 Kananjalo makube lee kum ukuthi ndone kuYehova ngokuyeka ukunithandazela; ndoniyalela indlela elungileyo ethe tye. 12:24 Kodwa moyikeni uYehova, nimkhonze ngenyaniso, ngentliziyo yenu yonke; ngokuba kuboneni okukhulu anenzele khona. 12:25 Ke ukuba niphikele ukwenza, nithe nenza okubi, nocinywa, nina kwanokumkani wenu.

13:1 USawule ebeneminyaka ezelwe, akuba ngukumkani, waba ngukumkani kumaSirayeli iminyaka emibini. 13:2 USawule wazinyulela amawaka amathathu kumaSirayeli; amawaka amabini ayenoSawule eMikmas nakweleentaba laseBheteli, iwaka elinye laye linoYonatan eGibheha yakwaBhenjamin. Abantu abaseleyo wabandulula, baya elowo ententeni yakhe. 13:3 UYonatan wayoyisa ikampu yamaFilisti eseGebha, eva amaFilisti. USawule wavuthela ngesigodlo ezweni lonke, esithi, Makeve amaHebhere. 13:4 AmaSirayeli onke eva kusithiwa, USawule uyoyisile ikampu yamaFilisti; kananjalo amaSirayeli azinukisile kumaFilisti. Abantu bahlatyelwa umkhosi, beza bamlandela uSawule baya eGiligali. 13:5 AmaFilisti azihlanganisela ukulwa namaSirayeli: iinqwelo zokulwa zaba ngamashumi omathathu amawaka, nabamahashe bangamawaka amathandathu, abantu bangangentlabathi eselunxwemeni lolwandle ukuba baninzi; anyuka ke amisa iintente eMikmas phambi kweBhetaven. 13:6 Abona amadoda akwaSirayeli ukuba abandezelekile (kuba abantu bebefingiwe), abantu bazimela emiqolombeni, nasezimfanteni, nasezingxondorheni, nasemiweweni, nasemihadini. 13:7 Ke kaloku kwawela amaHebhere eYordan, aya ezweni lakwaGadi nelaseGiliyadi. Ke yena uSawule ebeseseGiligali; abantu bonke bamlandela begubha. 13:8 Walinda iintsuku zasixhenxe, ngokwexesha elibe limisiwe nguSamuweli, akafika uSamuweli eGiligali; bamphalala abantu bemka kuye. 13:9 Wathi uSawule, Zisani kum idini elinyukayo nemibingelelo yoxolo. Wenyusa idini elinyukayo. 13:10 Kwathi, xa agqibileyo ukulinyusa idini elinyukayo, nanko uSamuweli efika; waphuma uSawule waya kumkhawulela, ukuba ambulise. 13:11 Wathi uSamuweli, Yintoni le uyenzileyo? Wathi uSawule, Kungokuba bendibona abantu bendiphalala, besimka kum, nawe ungafiki ngexesha elibe limisiwe, namaFilisti ehlanganiselana eMikmas; 13:12 ndathi, Kaloku amaFilisti aya kuda ehle eze kum eGiligali, ndingambongozanga uYehova; ndazinyanzela, ndalinyusa idini elinyukayo. 13:13 Wathi uSamuweli kuSawule, Wenze ngobudenge; akuwugcinanga umthetho kaYehova uThixo wakho awakuwiselayo; ngokuba uYehova ange ebuzinzisile kaloku ubukumkani bakho kwaSirayeli, kude kuse ephakadeni. 13:14 Ke ngoko ubukumkani bakho abusayi kuma. UYehova uzifunele indoda engantliziyo yakhe; wayimisa uYehova ukuba ibe yinganga yabantu bakhe; ngokuba akukugcinanga oko uYehova akuwisele umthetho ngako. 13:15 Wesuka uSamuweli wenyuka, wemka eGiligali, waya eGibheha yakwaBhenjamin. USawule wababala abantu abafunyenwe benaye, bengamadoda akumakhulu amathandathu. 13:16 USawule, noYonatan unyana wakhe, nabantu abafunyenwe benabo, bahlala eGibheha yakwaBhenjamin. AmaFilisti amisa iintente eMikmas. 13:17 Kwaphuma amatutu emkhosini wamaFilisti, engamaqela amathathu: elinye iqela labheka ngendlela yaseOfra ezweni lakwaShuwali; 13:18 elinye iqela labheka endleleni yaseBhete-horon; elinye iqela labheka endleleni yasemdeni ovelela umfula weTsebhoyim, uye entlango. 13:19 Ke bekungekho mkhandi ezweni lonke lakwaSirayeli; ngokuba amaFilisti ebesithi, Aya kuze amaHebhere enze amakrele neentshuntshe. 13:20 AmaSirayeli onke abesihla aye kumaFilisti, alole elowo isikhali sakhe, nesitshetshe sepuluwa yakhe, nezembe lakhe, negaba lakhe, 13:21 zakuba nezikhewu iintlangothi zamagaba, nezezitshetshe zeepuluwa, nezeefolokhwe, nezamazembe, nezokubaza iimviko. 13:22 Kwathi ke ngomhla wokulwa, akwafunyanwa krele nantshuntshe esandleni sabantu bonke ababenoSawule noYonatan; ke kuSawule noYonatan unyana wakhe bezikho. 13:23 Kwaphuma amaFilisti ekampini, aya engxingweni yaseMikmas.

14:1 Kwathi ngamhla uthile, uYonatan unyana kaSawule wathi kumfana ophatha iintonga zakhe, Hamba siphumele, siye ekampini yamaFilisti ephesheya phaya. Akamxelela uyise. 14:2 USawule ke wayehleli ekupheleni kweGibheha phantsi komrharnate oseMigron. Abantu ababenaye babekumakhulu amathandathu amadoda, 14:3 enoAhiya, unyana ka-Ahitubhi, umkhuluwa kaIkabhodi, unyana kaPinehasi, unyana kaEli, umbingeleli kaYehova eShilo, enxibe iefodi. Bebengazi abantu ukuba uYonatan uyile. 14:4 Ezingxingweni, abefuna ukuphumela kuzo uYonatan, aye ekampini yamaFilisti, bekukho itsolo lengxondorha ngapha; kukho itsolo lengxondorha ngaphaya; igama lelinye libe linguBhotsetse, igama lelinye linguSene. 14:5 Okunye ukutsola bekuyintsika ngasentla malunga neMikmas, okunye kungasezantsi malunga neGibheha. 14:6 Wathi ke uYonatan kumfana lowo uphatha iintonga zakhe, Hamba siphumele, siye ekampini yaba bangalukileyo; mhlawumbi uYehova wosisebenzela; ngokuba akukho sithintelo kuYehova ukuba asindise ngabaninzi nangabambalwa. 14:7 Wathi umphathi weentonga zakhe kuye, Yenza konke okusentliziyweni yakho; singa phaya; yabona, ndinawe ngokwentliziyo yakho. 14:8 Wathi uYonatan, Yabona, siyaphumela, siya kulaa madoda, siya kuzibonakalisa kuwo. 14:9 Ukuba athe kuthi, Hlalani, side size kuni; siya kuma kuloo ndawo yethu, singenyuki siye kuwo. 14:10 Ukuba athe, Nyukani nize kuthi: sonyuka, ngokuba uYehova uwanikele esandleni sethu; lowo woba ngumqondiso kuthi. 14:11 Bazibonakalisa bobabini ekampini yamaFilisti; athi amaFilisti, Nanga amaHebhere ephuma emingxunyeni abezimele kuyo. 14:12 Abaphendula amadoda asekampini ooYonatan nomphathi weentonga zakhe, athi, Nyukani nize kuthi, sinibonise. Wathi uYonatan kumphathi weentonga zakhe, Nyuka emva kwam; ngokuba uYehova uwanikele esandleni samaSirayeli. 14:13 Wenyuka uYonatan, ekhasa ngezandla neenyawo, umphathi weentonga zakhe esemva kwakhe. Awa phambi koYonatan; nomphathi weentonga zakhe esemva kwakhe ebulala. 14:14 Kwathi, ukuxabela kokuqala awaxabela ngako uYonatan nomphathi weentonga zakhe, kwaxatyelwa amadoda angathi amashumi mabini, esiqingatheni sendima eyiakile yentsimi. 14:15 Kwabakho umothuko emkhosini, nasezindle, nasebantwini bonke; ikampu namatutu bothuka nabo; wanyikima umhlaba; yaba sisothuso esivela kuThixo. 14:16 Bakhangela ababoniseli bakaSawule, baseGibheha yakwaBhenjamin, nantso ingxokolo inyibilika; yaye ichithana yodwa. 14:17 Wathi uSawule ebantwini ababenaye, Khanibale, nibone ukuba ngubani na ongekhoyo kuthi. Babala; yini? akakho uYonatan nomphathi weentonga zakhe. 14:18 Wathi usawule kuAhiya, Zisa apha ityeya kaThixo; ngokuba ityeya kaThixo ibinoonyana bakaSirayeli ngaloo mini. 14:19 Kwathi, esathetha uSawule kumbingeleli, ingxokozelo yempi yamaFilisti yaya ikhula. Wathi uSawule kumbingeleli, Sibuyise umva isandla sakho. 14:20 Bahlanganisana uSawule nabantu bonke ababenaye, baya kulwa; nalo ikrele lomntu limi kummelwane wakhe, isisaqunge esikhulu. 14:21 Ke kaloku athi namaHebhere abekumaFilisti njengaphambili, abenyuke ngeenxa zonke, eza nawo emkhosini, esuka aphamba nawo, angakumaSirayeli la abenoSawule noYonatan. 14:22 Kwanamadoda onke akwaSirayeli, abezimele kweleentaba lakwaEfrayim, eva ukuba amaFilisti asabile, awalandela athana mbende nawo ekulweni. 14:23 UYehova wawasindisa ke amaSirayeli ngaloo mini. Ukulwa kwegqitha eBhetaven. 14:24 Amadoda akwaSirayeli ayeminyekile kukudinwa ngaloo mini. USawule wabafungisa abantu, esithi, Uqalekisiwe odla isonka kungekahlwi, ndide ndiziphindezelele ezintshabeni zam. Bonke abantu abadla nento. 14:25 Lonke ilizwe leza ehlathini; kwaye kukho ubusi phezu komhlaba. 14:26 Bafika abantu ehlathini, nanko kuvuza ubusi. Akwabakho usa isandla emlonyeni wakhe; ngokuba abantu babesoyika isifungo. 14:27 Ke uYonatan ubengamvanga uyise, ukubafungisa kwakhe abantu, wesa incam yentonga ebisesandleni sakhe, wayifaka enqatheni lobusi, wasibuyisela emlonyeni wakhe isandla sakhe; aqabuka amehlo akhe. 14:28 Yaphendula indoda yasebantwini, yathi, Uyihlo ubafungisile wabafungisa abantu, esithi, Uqalekisiwe odla isonka, namhlanje. Babethe ncithi abantu liphango. 14:29 Wathi uYonatan, Ubawo ulihlisele ishwangusha ilizwe; khanikhangele, amehlo am aqabukile, ngokuba ndive le ntwana yobusi. 14:30 Ukuba babethe abantu badla, besidla namhla emaxhobeni eentshaba zabo abawafumeneyo, ngelubeke phi na ke ukugqithisela ukuba lukhulu ngoku uxabelo kumaFilisti? 14:31 Bawaxabela ngaloo mini amaFilisti, bathabathela eMikmas besa eAyalon; betyhafile kunene abantu. 14:32 Baziphosa abantu emaxhobeni, bathabatha impahla emfutshane, neenkomo, namathole eenkomo, baxhelela emhlabeni, abantu bayidla inegazi. 14:33 Waxelelwa uSawule, kwathiwa, Uyabona, abantu bayona kuYehova ngokuyidla inegazi. Wathi, Nitshinizile; qengqelani kum ilitye elikhulu ngoku. 14:34 Wathi uSawule, Yithini saa phakathi kwabantu, nithi kubo, Zisani kum elowo inkomo yakhe, elowo igusha yakhe, nixhelele apha, nidle; ningoni kuYehova ngokuyidla inegazi. Bonke abantu bazisa elowo inkomo yakhe ngesandla sakhe ngobo busuku, baxhelela khona. 14:35 USawule wakha isibingelelo kuYehova, waqala ngaso ukwakha isibingelelo kuYehova. 14:36 Wathi uSawule, Masihle siwaphuthume amaFilisti ebusuku, siwaphange kude kuse ngomso, singashiyi mntu kuwo. Bathi, Yenza konke okulungileyo emehlweni akho. Wathi umbingeleli, Masisondele kuThixo apha. 14:37 USawule wabuza kuThixo, esithi, Ndihle ndiwalandele na amaFilisti? Wowanikela na esandleni samaSirayeli? Akamphendula loo mini. 14:38 Wathi uSawule, Yizani apha, nonke nina zibonda zabantu, nazi, nibone ukuba sikwini na esi sono namhlanje? 14:39 Ngokuba ehleli nje uYehova osindise amaSirayeli, nokuba sibe sikuYonatan unyana wam, ubeya kufa. Akwabakho umphendulayo ebantwini bonke. 14:40 Wathi kumaSirayeli onke, Yibani ngelinye icala nina, ndibe ngelinye icala, mna noYonatan unyana wam. Bathi abantu kuSawule, Yenza okulungileyo emehlweni akho. 14:41 Wathi uSawule kuYehova, Thixo kaSirayeli, velisa inyaniso. Kwathatyathwa ke uYonatan noSawule, basinda abantu. 14:42 Wathi uSawule, Yenzani amaqashiso kum noYonatan unyana wam. Kwathatyathwa ke uYonatan. 14:43 Wathi uSawule kuYonatan, Ndixelele, yintoni na le nto uyenzileyo? UYonatan wamxelela, wathi, Ndisuke ndeva intwana yobusi ngencam yentonga ebisesandleni sam; nanku ndiya kufa. 14:44 Wathi uSawule, UThixo makenjenje kum, aqokele ukwenjenje; inene, ukufa uya kufa, Yonatan. 14:45 Bathi abantu kuSawule, Afe na uYonatan, owenze olu lusindiso lukhulu kwaSirayeli? Makube lee oko! Ehleli nje uYehova, akusayi kuwa nonwele lwentloko yakhe emhlabeni; ngokuba usebenzisene noThixo namhla. Bamkhulula ke abantu uYonatan, akafa. 14:46 Wenyuka uSawule ekuwalandeleni amaFilisti; athi amaFilisti aya kuloo ndawo yawo. 14:47 Wabuthabatha ke uSawule ubukumkani bakwaSirayeli; walwa ngeenxa zonke neentshaba zakhe zonke, amaMowabhi, noonyana baka-Amon, namaEdom nookumkani baseTsobha, namaFilisti; wathi, ezindaweni zonke abheka kuzo, wawatyela. 14:48 Wavelisa amandla, wawaxabela ama-Amaleki, wawahlangula amaSirayeli esandleni sabo babewaphanga. 14:49 Ke kaloku oonyana bakaSawule bebengooYonatan, noIshevi, noMalekishuwa. Ke amagama eentombi zakhe zombini ngawo la: igama leyamazibulo nguMerabhi, igama lenci nguMikali. 14:50 Igama lomkaSawule belinguAhinowam, intombi ka-Ahimahatse. Igama lomthetheli womkhosi wakhe belinguAbhinere, unyana kaNere, uyisekazi kaSawule. 14:51 Uyise kaSawule ubenguKishe; uNere, uyise ka-Abhinere, wayengunyana ka-Abhiyeli. 14:52 Kwaye kunzima ukulwa namaFilisti yonke imihla kaSawule; ngoko uSawule ubesithi akubona indoda eligorha nokuba yiyiphi, nendoda enobukroti nokuba yiyiphi, ayithabathele kuye.

1 KaSamuweli 15

15:1 Wathi uSamuweli kuSawule, UYehova wandithuma ukuba ndikuthambise ube ngukumkani kubantu bakhe, kumaSirayeli. Waphulaphule ke ngoko amazwi kaYehova. 15:2 Utsho uYehova wemikhosi, ukuthi, Ndikukhangele konke awakwenzayo ama-Amaleki kumaSirayeli, okokuba awathintelayo endleleni ekunyukeni kwawo eYiputa. 15:3 Yiya ngoko, uwaxabele ama-Amaleki, nikusingele phantsi konke anako, ningawacongi; uze ubulale, uthabathela kwindoda use kwinkazana, uthabathela kolunyulweyo use kowanyayo, uthabathela kwinkomo use kwimvu, uthabathela kwinkamela use kwiesile. 15:4 Wababiza ke abantu, wababala eTelayim; amabini amakhulu amawaka omqikela; alishumi lamawaka amadoda akwaYuda. 15:5 USawule wafika kumzi wama-Amaleki walalela esihlanjeni. 15:6 Wathi uSawule kumaKeni, Hambani nihle, nimke kuma-Amaleki, hleze ndiniquke nawo; nina nabenzela inceba bonke oonyana bakaSirayeli ekunyukeni kwabo eYiputa. Emka ke amaKeni kuma-Amaleki. 15:7 USawule wawaxabela ama-Amaleki, wathabathela eHavila wada waya eShure, ekhangelene neYiputa. 15:8 Wambamba uAgagi ukumkani wama-Amaleki ehleli, wabasingela phantsi bonke abantu ngohlangothi lwekrele. 15:9 USawule nabantu bamsindisa uAgagi, neyona ilungileyo impahla emfutshane, neenkomo, neyalekelwayo, neemvana, izinto zonke ezilungileyo abavuma ukuzisingela phantsi zona; ke yonke impahla edelekileyo, egxugxileyo, bayisingela phantsi. 15:10 Lafika ilizwi likaYehova kuSamuweli, lisithi, 15:11 Ndiyazohlwaya ngenxa yokuba ndimenzile uSawule ukumkani; ngokuba ebuyile ekundilandeleni, akalifeza ilizwi lam. Wavutha ngumsindo uSamuweli, wakhala kuYehova ubusuku bonke. 15:12 Wavuka kusasa uSamuweli, waya kukhawulela uSawule kusasa. Waxelelwa uSamuweli kwathiwa, USawule uzeeKarmele; nanko ezimisele isikhumbuzo, ejike wegqitha, wehla waya eGiligali. 15:13 USamuweli waya kuSawule; uSawule wathi kuye, Mawusikelelwe nguYehova; ndilifezile ilizwi likaYehova. 15:14 Wathi uSamuweli, Liyintoni na eli lizwi lempahla emfutshane lisezindlebeni zam, noku kukhonya kweenkomo ndikuvayo? 15:15 Wathi uSawule, Zezi bavela nazo kuma-Amaleki; ngokuba abantu bayisindisile eyona ilungileyo impahla emfutshane neenkomo, ukuze babingelele kuYehova uThixo wakho; ezinye sazisingela phantsi. 15:16 Wathi uSamuweli kuSawule, Yeka, ndikuxelele akuthethileyo uYehova kum ngobu busuku. Wathi kuye, Thetha. 15:17 Wathi uSamuweli, Akubanga yintloko yezizwe zakwaSirayeli yini na, uzeyile wena? Wakuthambisa uYehova ukuba ngukumkani kumaSirayeli. 15:18 UYehova wakuthuma ngendlela, wathi, Hamba uye kutshabalalisa aboni abo ama-Amaleki; ulwe nawo ude uwagqibe. 15:19 Yini na ke ukuba ungaliphulaphuli ilizwi likaYehova, usuke uziphose emaxhobeni, wenze okubi emehlweni kaYehova? 15:20 Wathi uSawule kuSamuweli, Hayi, ndiliphulaphule ilizwi likaYehova, ndahamba ngendlela abendithume ngayo uYehova, ndamzisa uAgagi ukumkani wama-Amaleki, ndawatshabalalisa ama-Amaleki. 15:21 Besuka abantu bathabatha emaxhobeni: impahla emfutshane, neenkomo, neyona inentlahla kwizinto ezisingelwe phantsi, ukuze babingelele kuYehova, uThixo wakho, eGiligali. 15:22 Wathi uSamuweli, UYehova unonelele amadini anyukayo nemibingelelo, ngangokuba enonelele ukuphulaphulwa kwezwi likaYehova, yini na? Yabona, ukuphulaphula kulungile ngaphezu kombingelelo, nokubaza iindlebe kulungile ngaphezu kwamanqatha eenkunzi zeegusha. 15:23 Ngokuba ukuba neenkani kusisono esinjengokuvumisa, ubungqola bunjengenkonzo yezithixo nemilondekhaya. Ngenxa yokuba ulicekisile ilizwi likaYehova, naye ukucekisile ukuba ungabi kumkani. 15:24 Wathi uSawule kuSamuweli, Ndonile; ngokuba ndigqithile emthethweni kaYehova naselizwini lakho; kuba bendisoyika abantu, ndaphulaphula izwi labo. 15:25 Khawusixolele ngoko isono sam; buya nam, ndiye ndimnqule uYehova. 15:26 Wathi uSamuweli kuSawule, Andiyi kubuya nawe; ngokuba ulicekisile ilizwi likaYehova, naye uYehova ukucekisile, ukuba ungabi kumkani kumaSirayeli. 15:27 Wathi akuthi guququ uSamuweli ukuba emke, wabamba isondo lengubo yakhe yokwaleka, lakrazuka. 15:28 Wathi uSamuweli kuye, UYehova ukukrazule kuwe namhla ubukumkani bakwaSirayeli, wabunika ummelwane wakho olungileyo kunawe. 15:29 Kananjalo uQele-likaSirayeli akaxoki, akazohlwayi; ngokuba akangumntu ukuba azohlwaye. 15:30 Wathi yena, Ndonile; wosewundizukisa phambi kwamadoda amakhulu abantu bakowethu, naphambi kwamaSirayeli, ubuye nam, ndimnqule uYehova, uThixo wakho. 15:31 Wabuya ke uSamuweli, walandela uSawule; uSawule wamnqula uYehova. 15:32 Wathi uSamuweli, Mziseni apha kum uAgagi, ukumkani wama-Amaleki. Waya uAgagi kuye echwayithile. Wathi uAgagi, Inene, bugqithile ubukrakra bokufa. 15:33 Wathi uSamuweli, Njengokuba ikrele lakho labahluthayo abafazi abantwana babo, uya kwenjiwa njalo unyoko phakathi kwabafazi, ukuhluthwa abantwana. USamuweli wamxhaxha uAgagi phambi koYehova eGiligali. 15:34 Waya uSamuweli eRama; uSawule wenyuka waya endlwini yakhe eGibheha yakwaSawule. 15:35 USamuweli akabuyanga abonane noSawule, kwada kwayimini yokufa kwakhe; kuba uSamuweli wamlilela uSawule. Wazohlwaya uYehova ngenxa yokuba ebemenze uSawule ukumkani kwaSirayeli.

16:1 Wathi uYehova kuSamuweli, Uya kumlilela kude kube nini na uSawule, ndimcekisile nje ukuba angabi kumkani kumaSirayeli? Zalisa isigodlo sakho ngeoli, uhambe; ndiya kukuthumela kuYese waseBhetelehem; ngokuba ndizibonele ukumkani koonyana bakhe. 16:2 Wathi uSamuweli, Ndothini na ukuya? USawule uya kuva, andibulale. Wathi uYehova, Thabatha ithokazi lenkomo uye nalo, uthi, Ndize kubingelela kuYehova. 16:3 Ummemele embingelelweni uYese; ndokwazisa mna into owoyenza, undithambisele endiya kuthetha kuwe ngaye. 16:4 Wakwenza uSamuweli akuthethileyo, waya eBhetelehem. Othuka ke amadoda amakhulu omzi, eza kumkhawulela, athi, Uza uxolile na? 16:5 Wathi, Ndixolile; ndize kubingelela kuYehova; zingcwaliseni, nize nam embingelelweni. Wamngcwalisa uYese noonyana bakhe, wabamemela embingelelweni. 16:6 Kwathi, ekuzeni kwabo, wabona uEliyabhi, wathi, Inene, uphambi koYehova umthanjiswa wakhe. 16:7 Wathi uYehova kuSamuweli, Musa ukukhangela imbonakalo yakhe, nokuphakama kwesithomo sakhe, ngokuba ndimcekisile. Andikhangeli njengokukhangela komntu; ngokuba umntu ukhangela umphandle, uYehova ukhangela intliziyo. 16:8 UYese wabiza uAbhinadabhi, wamgqithisa phambi koSamuweli. Wathi, Nalo uYehova akamnyulanga. 16:9 UYese wagqithisa uShama. Wathi, Nalo uYehova akamnyulanga. 16:10 UYese wagqithisa ke oonyana bakhe abasixhenxe phambi koSamuweli. Wathi uSamuweli kuYese, Aba uYehova akabanyulanga. 16:11 Wathi uSamuweli kuYese, Awonke na amakhwenkwe akho? Wathi, Kusasele encinane; nantso isalusa impahla emfutshane. Wathi uSamuweli kuYese, Thumela iye kubizwa; ngokuba asiyi kuhlala esidlweni, ide ifike apha. 16:12 Wathumela wayizisa. Yaye ingqombo, emahle amehlo ayo, intle nembonakalo yayo. Wathi uYehova, Suka ume, umthambise; ngokuba nguye lo. 16:13 USamuweli wathabatha isigodlo seoli, wamthambisa esesazulwini sabakhuluwa bakhe. UMoya kaYehova wamfikela ngamandla uDavide, ukususela kuloo mini. Wesuka ke uSamuweli, waya eRama. 16:14 Ke uMoya kaYehova wemka kuSawule; wadandathekiswa ngumoya ombi ophuma kuYehova. 16:15 Bathi abakhonzi bakaSawule kuye, Yabona, udandathekiswa ngumoya ombi ophuma kuThixo. 16:16 Inkosi yethu mayithethe, abakhonzi bakho abaphambi kwakho baye kufuna indoda ekwaziyo ukubetha uhadi; kuthi, wakuba phezu kwakho umoya ombi ophuma kuThixo, ilubethe ngesandla sayo, kulunge kuwe. 16:17 Wathi uSawule kubakhonzi bakhe, Khanindikhangelele indoda ebetha kamnandi, niyizise kum. 16:18 Waphendula omnye umfana wathi, Yabona, ndibone unyana kaYese waseBhetelehem okwaziyo ukubetha; ligorha elinobukroti, indoda yokulwa, iciko lokuthetha, umfo omhle; uYehova unaye. 16:19 USawule wathuma abathunywa kuYese, wathi, Mthumele eze kum uDavide, unyana wakho, osempahleni emfutshane. 16:20 UYese wathabatha iesile, kubotshelelwe izonka kulo, nentsuba yewayini, netakane lalinye lebhokhwe, wathumela ngoDavide unyana wakhe kuSawule. 16:21 Weza uDavide kuSawule, wema phambi kwakhe; wamthanda kakhulu, waba ngumphathi weentonga zakhe. 16:22 Wathumela uSawule kuYese, esithi, Makeme phambi kwam uDavide; kuba ubabalwe ndim. 16:23 Kwathi, wakufika umoya ombi kaThixo kuSawule, uDavide wathabatha uhadi, wabetha ngesandla sakhe; kwee qabu kuSawule, kwalunga kuye, wemka kuye umoya ombi.

17:1 Ke kaloku amaFilisti ayihlanganisa imikhosi yawo ukuba alwe, ayihlanganisela eSoko ekwaYuda, amisa phakathi kweSoko neAzeka, e-Efesedamim. 17:2 USawule namadoda akwaSirayeli ahlanganisana, amisa entilini kaEla, akha uluhlu lokulwa ukuba awahlangabeze amaFilisti. 17:3 AmaFilisti ema ngasentabeni ngapha, amaSirayeli ema ngasentabeni ngapha, umfula uphakathi kwawo. 17:4 Kwaphuma empini yamaFilisti indoda efuna undikho, egama linguGoliyati waseGati, ebude buziikubhite ezintandathu ezinomolulo weminwe; 17:5 enesigcina-ntloko sobhedu entloko, yambethe ingubo yentsimbi; ubunzima bengubo yentsimbi buziishekele zobhedu ezimawaka mahlanu; 17:6 eneentsekelezane zobhedu emilenzeni, nomkhonto wobhedu phakathi kwamagxa ayo; 17:7 uluthi lwentshuntshe yayo belungangomthi wabaluki; intsimbi yentshuntshe yayo ibiziishekele ezimakhulu mathandathu esinyithi; kuhamba umphathi wekhaka phambi kwayo. 17:8 Yema, yamemeza kwizintlu zakwaSirayeli, yathi kuzo, Yini na ukuba niphume nakhe uluhlu lokulwa? Andinguye na umFilisti, naye nina ningabakhonzi bakaSawule? Zikhetheleni indoda, ihle ize kum. 17:9 Ukuba ithe yanako ukulwa nam, yandibulala, soba ngabakhonzi kuni; ukuba ndithe ndayeyisa mna, ndayibulala, noba ngabakhonzi kuthi, nisikhonze. 17:10 Wathi umFilisti, Mna ndiyazingcikiva namhla izintlu zakwaSirayeli; ndikhupheleni indoda silwe sobabini. 17:11 OoSawule namaSirayeli onke baweva amazwi alo mFilisti, bathi qhiphu umbilini, boyika kunene. 17:12 Ke uDavide waye engunyana waloo mEfrata waseBhetelehem yakwaYuda, ugama linguYese, unyana basibhozo; ubeyindoda eyalupheleyo ngemihla kaSawule, emdala kakhulu phakathi kwamanye amadoda. 17:13 Babeye ekulweni oonyana abathathu bakaYese abakhulu, bemlandela uSawule. Amagama oonyana bakhe abathathu ababeye kulwa nguEliyabhi owamazibulo, emva kwakhe nguAbhinadabhi, owesithathu nguShama. 17:14 UDavide ubengomncinane; abakhulu bobathathu babelandele uSawule. 17:15 UDavide ubesiya abuye kuSawule, ukuba aluse impahla emfutshane kayise eBhetelehem. 17:16 UmFilisti lowo weza kusasa nangokuhlwa, wema imihla emashumi mane. 17:17 Wathi uYese kuDavide unyana wakhe, Khawuphathele abakhuluwa bakho iefa yamakhweba la, nezonka ezi zilishumi, ugidime uye emkhosini kubakhuluwa bakho, 17:18 use nezonka zamasi ezi zilishumi kumthetheli-waka, ubavelele abakhuluwa bakho, ubuze ukuphila kwabo, uthabathe isibambiso kubo. 17:19 USawule ke, kwanabo, namadoda onke akwaSirayeli, ayesentilini kaEla, esilwa namaFilisti. 17:20 Wavuka kusasa uDavide ngengomso, wayishiya impahla emfutshane nomgcini, wathabatha, wahamba, njengoko wamwiselayo uYese umthetho, wafika eluthangweni lweenqwelo zokulwa, umkhosi uphuma usiya kuma eluhlwini, uhlaba umkhosi. 17:21 AmaSirayeli namaFilisti akha izintlu, uluhlu lukhangelene noluhlu. 17:22 UDavide wayishiya impahla yakhe esandleni somgcini wempahla, wabaleka waya eluhlwini; wafika, wababuza abakhuluwa bakhe ukuphila kwabo. 17:23 Akubon’ ukuba uyathetha nabo, nantso inyuka indoda efuna undikho, umFilisti waseGati, egama linguGoliyati, ivela ezintlwini zamaFilisti, yathetha kwalaa mazwi; weva ke uDavide. 17:24 Onke amadoda akwaSirayeli, akuyibona indoda leyo, asaba ebusweni bayo, oyika kunene. 17:25 Athi amaSirayeli, Niyibonile na le ndoda inyukayo? Kuba inyuka isiza kungcikiva amaSirayeli; yothi indoda ethe yayibulala, ityetyiswe ngukumkani ngobutyebi obukhulu, ayinike intombi yakhe, ayenze indlu kayise ikhululeke kwaSirayeli. 17:26 Wathetha uDavide kumadoda abemi ngakuye, wathi, Yothiwani na indoda embuleleyo lo mFilisti, yayisusa ingcikivo kwaSirayeli? Ngokuba ungubani na umFilisti, le nto ingalukileyo, ukuba ade angcikive izintlu zikaThixo ophilileyo? 17:27 Bathetha abantu kuye ngokwelaa lizwi, bathi, Uya kwenjiwa nje umntu ombuleleyo. 17:28 Wayekuva uEliyabhi, umkhuluwa wakhe, ukuthetha kwakhe namadoda. Wavutha umsindo kaEliyabhi kuDavide, wathi, Uhleleni na? Uyishiye nabani na laa mpahla imfutshane imbalwa entlango? Ndiyakwazi mna ukukhukhumala kwakho, nobubi bentliziyo yakho; ngokuba uhle uze kubonela ukulwa. 17:29 Wathi uDavide, Ndenzeni ngoku? Bendibuza nje kodwa. 17:30 Wee guququ, wabheka komnye obemi ngakuye, wathetha kwaelaa lizwi. Abantu babuya bamphendula kwangelaa lizwi lokuqala. 17:31 Aviwa amazwi awawathethayo uDavide, axelwa phambi koSawule, wamthabatha. 17:32 Wathi uDavide kuSawule, Makungathambi ntliziyo yamntu ngenxa yakhe; umkhonzi wakho lo uya kuya alwe nalo mFilisti. 17:33 Wathi uSawule kuDavide, Akunakuya kulo mFilisti ulwe naye; ngokuba usemncinane, abe yena eyindoda eqhele ukulwa kwasebuncinaneni bakhe. 17:34 Wathi uDavide kuSawule, Umkhonzi wakho lo ebesalusa impahla emfutshane kayise, kwafika ingonyama nebhere, yathabatha ixhwane emhlambini; 17:35 ndaphuma, ndayilandela, ndayibetha, ndalihlangula ixhwane emlonyeni wayo. Yesuka phezu kwam, ndayibamba ngodevu lwayo, ndayibetha, ndayibulala. 17:36 Umkhonzi wakho wayibetha ingonyama kwanebhere; lo mFilisti ungalukileyo uya kuba njengenye kuzo ke, ngokuba ungcikive izintlu zikaThixo ophilileyo. 17:37 Wathi uDavide, UYehova owandihlangulayo ethupheni lengonyama nasethupheni lebhere, nguye oya kundihlangula esandleni salo mFilisti. Wathi uSawule kuDavide, Hamba ke, abe nawe uYehova. 17:38 USawule wamambathisa uDavide ngezakhe iingubo, wambeka isigcina-ntloko sobhedu entloko, wamfaka ingubo yentsimbi. 17:39 UDavide walibhinqa ikrele ngaphezu kweengubo zakhe, wazama ukuhamba ngazo; ngokuba ebengekazilingi. Wathi uDavide kuSawule, Andinako ukuhamba nezi zinto, ngokuba andizilinganga. UDavide wazihluba. 17:40 Wathabatha intonga yakhe esandleni sakhe, wanyula amatye amahlanu abuthelezi emlanjaneni, wawafaka empahleni yabalusi abenayo, eyingxowa, ephethe inkwitshi yakhe esandleni sakhe, weza kumFilisti lowo. 17:41 UmFilisti wahamba, waya esondela kuDavide, nendoda ephatha ikhaka lakhe ihamba phambi kwakhe. 17:42 UmFilisti wondela, wambona uDavide, wamdela; ngokuba ebesengumfana oyingqombo, emhle imbonakalo. 17:43 Wathi umFilisti kuDavide, Ndiyinja na, ukuba uze kum uneentonga? UmFilisti wamtshabhisa uDavide ngoothixo bakhe. 17:44 Wathi umFilisti kuDavide, Yiza kum apha, ndiyinike iintaka zezulu namarhamncwa asendle inyama yakho. 17:45 Wathi uDavide kumFilisti, Wena uza kum unekrele, nentshuntshe, nomkhonto; ke mna ndiza kuwe egameni likaYehova wemikhosi, uThixo wezintlu zakwaSirayeli omngcikivileyo. 17:46 Namhlanje uYehova uya kukunikela esandleni sam, ndikubulale, ndikunqumle intloko, namhla ndizinike iintaka zezulu namarhamncwa omhlaba izidumbu zomkhosi wamaFilisti, wazi wonke umhlaba ukuba amaSirayeli anaye uThixo; 17:47 lazi lonke eli bandla, ukuba akungakrele, akungantshuntshe ukusindisa kukaYehova; ngokuba imfazwe yekaYehova; woninikela ke esandleni sethu. 17:48 Kwathi, xa asukayo umFilisti, ehamba esondela, esiya kumhlangabeza uDavide, wakhawuleza uDavide, wabalekela eluhlwini, esiya kumhlangabeza umFilisti. 17:49 UDavide wafaka isandla sakhe engxoweni, warhola ilitye khona, wasawula, watsho kumFilisti ebunzi; latshona ilitye ebunzini lakhe, wawa ngobuso bakhe emhlabeni. 17:50 UDavide wameyisa ke umFilisti ngenkwitshi nangelitye, watsho kumFilisti, wambulala, kungekho krele esandleni sikaDavide. 17:51 Wagidima uDavide, waya wema phezu komFilisti, walithabatha ikrele lakhe, walirhola esingxobeni salo, wambulala, wamnqumla intloko. Abona ke amaFilisti ukuba lifile igorha lawo, asaba. 17:52 Asuka amadoda akwaSirayeli nawakwaYuda, aduma, awasukela amaFilisti kwada kwayiwa emfuleni, kwesa emasangweni ase-Ekron. Awa amaFilisti angxwelerhiweyo endleleni yaseShaharayim, kwesa naseGati, kwesa nase-Ekron. 17:53 Babuya oonyana bakaSirayeli ekuwasukeleni ngokushushu amaFilisti, baziphanga iintente zawo. 17:54 UDavide wayithabatha intloko yomFilisti, wayisa eYerusalem; impahla yakhe wayibeka ententeni yakhe. 17:55 Xa uSawule ebembona uDavide, ephuma esiya kumhlangabeza umFilisti, wathi kuAbhinere, umthetheli-mkhosi, Wa, Abhinere, ngunyana kabani na lomfana? Wathi uAbhinere, Uhleli nje umphefumlo wakho, kumkani, andazi. 17:56 Wathi ukumkani, Buza ukuba ingunyana kabani na le ndodana. 17:57 Xa uDavide wabuyayo ekumbulaleni umFilisti, uAbhinere wamthabatha, wamzisa phambi koSawule, ephethe ngesandla intloko yomFilisti. 17:58 Wathi uSawule kuye, Ungunyana kabani na, mfanandini? Wathi uDavide, Ndingunyana womkhonzi wakho, uYese waseBhetelehem.

18:1 Kwathi, xa agqibileyo ukuthetha kuSawule, umphefumlo kaYonatan wabophana nomphefumlo kaDavide; uYonatan wamthanda njengomphefumlo wakhe. 18:2 USawule wamthabatha ngaloo mini, akamvumela ukuba abuyele endlwini kayise. 18:3 Benza umnqophiso ooYonatan noDavide, ngokumthanda kwakhe njengomphefumlo wakhe. 18:4 UYonatan wazihluba ingubo yokwaleka abenayo, wayinika uDavide, neengubo zakhe zokulwa, kwesa nakwikrele lakhe, nakwisaphetha sakhe, nakumbhinqo wakhe. 18:5 Waphuma uDavide, waya apho wathunywa khona nguSawule, wenza ngengqiqo. USawule wammisa phezu kwamadoda okulwa; walunga emehlweni abantu bonke, nasemehlweni abakhonzi bakaSawule. 18:6 Kwathi ekufikeni kwabo, ekubuyeni kukaDavide ekumbulaleni umFilisti, baphuma abafazi emizini yonke yakwaSirayeli, bevuma ingoma, bengqungqa, besiza kumkhawulela uSawule ukumkani ngeengqongqo, nangovuyo, nangeetriyangile. 18:7 Bavuma abafazi abaqambayo, bathi, USawule ubulele amawaka akhe, UDavide ubulele amawaka akhe angamashumi. 18:8 USawule wavutha kunene ngumsindo, lalibi emehlweni akhe elo lizwi; wathi, UDavide bamnike amawaka alishumi, mna bandinike amawaka nje; sekusele ukuthi ubukumkani bube bobakhe. 18:9 USawule wahlala emgxeleshile uDavide, kususela kuloo mini. 18:10 Kwathi ngengomso, umoya ombi kaThixo wamfikela ngamandla uSawule, wageza endlwini; uDavide ebetha uhadi ngesandla sakhe njengemihla; intshuntshe isesandleni sikaSawule. 18:11 USawule wabinza ngentshuntshe, wathi, Ndiya kumqhama nodonga uDavide. UDavide waphepha izihlandlo zazibini phambi kwakhe. 18:12 USawule wamoyika uDavide, ngokuba uYehova ebenaye, emkile kuSawule. 18:13 USawule wamsusa kuye, wammisa wangumthetheli wakhe wewaka; waphuma engena phambi kwabantu. 18:14 UDavide wenza ngengqiqo ezindleleni zakhe zonke, uYehova waye enaye. 18:15 Wabona uSawule ukuba unengqiqo enkulu, wanxunguphala bubuso bakhe; 18:16 ke onke amaSirayeli namaYuda ebemthanda uDavide, ngokuba ebephuma engena phambi kwawo. 18:17 Wathi uSawule kuDavide, Nantso intombi yam enkulu, uMerabhi; ndiya kunika ibe ngumkakho; kodwa yiba ngumfo onobukroti kum, ulwe iimfazwe zikaYehova. USawule ebesithi, Makungafiki esam isandla kuye, makufike esamaFilisti isandla kuye. 18:18 Wathi uDavide kuSawule, Ndingubani na, ayintoni na amakowethu, iyini imizalwane kabawo kwaSirayeli, ukuba ndibe ngumyeni kukumkani? 18:19 Kwathi ngexesha lokuba uMerabhi, intombi kaSawule, anikwe uDavide, wasuka wanikwa uAdriyeli waseMehola, ukuba abe ngumkakhe. 18:20 UMikali, intombi kaSawule, yamthanda uDavide. Waxelelwa uSawule, yalunga loo nto emehlweni akhe. 18:21 Wathi uSawule, Ndiya kumnika yona ibe ngumgibe kuye, sibe kuye isandla samaFilisti. Wathi uSawule kuDavide, Uya kuba ngumyeni kum namhla ngandlela mbini. 18:22 USawule wabawisela abakhonzi bakhe umthetho, wathi, Thethani ngasese kuDavide, nithi, Yabona, ukumkani ukunanzile, bonke abakhonzi bakhe bayakuthanda; ke ngoko yiba ngumyeni kukumkani. 18:23 Bawathetha abakhonzi bakaSawule loo mazwi ezindlebeni zikaDavide. Wathi uDavide, Yinto elula na emehlweni enu ukuba ngumyeni kukumkani, ndiyindoda elihlwempu nje, ndilula nje? 18:24 Abakhonzi bakaSawule bamxelela, besithi, UDavide uthethe wenjenje. 18:25 Wathi uSawule, Yitshoni kuDavide ukuthi, Ukumkani akananze khazi; lingaba likhulu leenyama zokwaluswa zamaFilisti, ukuba aziphindezelele ezintshabeni zokumkani. Ke uSawule ubecinga ukumwisa uDavide ngesandla samaFilisti. 18:26 Abakhonzi bakhe bamxelela uDavide loo mazwi; yalunga loo nto emehlweni kaDavide, ukuba abe ngumyeni kukumkani. Ke kaloku imihla ibingekazaliseki. 18:27 Wesuka uDavide, waya yena namadoda akhe, wabulala kumaFilisti amadoda angamakhulu amabini. UDavide wazizisa iinyama zokwaluswa zawo, wazinika ukumkani zingangoko zingako, ukuba abe ngumyeni kukumkani. USawule wamnika ke uMikali intombi yakhe, yangumkakhe. 18:28 Wakubona uSawule, wakwazi ukuba uYehova ebenoDavide. UMikali intombi kaSawule ubemthanda. 18:29 USawule wamoyika okunye uDavide; uSawule waba lutshaba kuDavide imihla yonke. 18:30 Baphuma abathetheli bamaFilisti; kwathi, bakuphuma, uDavide wenza ngengqiqo ngaphezu kwabakhonzi bonke bakaSawule. Lanconywa kunene igama lakhe.

19:1 Wathetha uSawule kuYonatan unyana wakhe, nakubakhonzi bakhe bonke, ukuba bambulale uDavide. 19:2 Ke uYonatan, unyana kaSawule, ube emthanda kunene uDavide. UYonatan wamxelela uDavide, esithi, USawule ubawo ufuna ukukubulala; ngoko uze ukhe uzigcine kusasa, uhlale endaweni esese, uzimele. 19:3 Mna ndiya kuphuma, ndime ngasecaleni likabawo endle, apho ukhona, ndithethe kubawo ngawe, ndikubone oko aya kukuthetha, ndikuxelele. 19:4 UYonatan wathetha okulungileyo ngoDavide kuSawule uyise, wathi kuye, Makangoni ukumkani kumkhonzi wakhe uDavide; ngokuba akonanga kuwe; kuba izenzo zakhe zithe zalunga kunene kuwe; 19:5 umphefumlo wakhe wawenza isichenge, wambulala umFilisti, uYehova wawenzela amaSirayeli onke usindiso olukhulu; wabona nawe wavuya. Yini na ke ukuba wone kwigazi elimsulwa, umbulale uDavide kungekho sizathu? 19:6 Waliphulaphula uSawule izwi likaYonatan, wafunga uSawule, wathi, Ehleli nje uYehova, akayi kubulawa. 19:7 UYonatan wambiza uDavide; uYonatan wamxelela la mazwi onke.

Wasaba uDavide, wasinda ngobo busuku. 19:11 USawule wathumela abathunywa endlwini kaDavide ukuba bamlinde, bambulale kusasa. UMikali, umkakhe, wamxelela uDavide, esithi, Ukuba uthe akwawusindisa umphefumlo wakho kwangobu busuku, wobulawa ngomso. 19:12 UMikali wamhlisa uDavide ngefestile. Wahamba wabaleka, wasinda. 19:13 UMikali wayithabatha imilonde-khaya, wayilalisa elukhukweni, wabeka nomluko woboya beebhokhwe entlokweni yayo, wayigubungela ngengubo. 19:14 USawule wasusa abathunywa ukuba bamthabathe uDavide. Wathi yena, Uyafa. 19:15 USawule wasusa abathunywa ukuba baye kumkhangela uDavide, esithi, Nyukani, nize naye kum ngokhuko, ndimbulale. 19:16 Bangena abathunywa, O! yimilonde-khaya le iselukhukweni, nomluko woboya beebhokhwe entlokweni yayo. 19:17 Wathi uSawule kuMikali, Yini na ukuba wenjenje ukundikhohlisa, ulundulule uthsaba lwam lusinde. Wathi uMikali kuSawule, Wathi yena kum, Ndiyeke ndimke, yini na ukuba ndikubulale? 19:18 Ebalekile uDavide, wasinda, waya kuSamuweli eRama, wamxelela konke abekwenzile uSawule kuye. Wahamba yena noSamuweli, bahlala eNayoti. 19:19 Waxelelwa uSawule, kusithiwa, Nanko uDavide eNayoti ngaseRama. 19:20 USawule wasusa abathunywa bokumbamba uDavide. Babona ibandla labaprofeti beprofeta, noSamuweli emi engumongameli wabo. UMoya kaThixo wabafikela abathunywa bakaSawule, baprofeta kananjalo nabo. 19:21 Waxelelwa uSawule, wasusa abanye abathunywa, baprofeta kananjalo nabo. Waphinda uSawule wasusa abathunywa bengabesithathu, baprofeta kananjalo nabo. 19:22 Waya naye eRama, wafika kwiqula elikhulu eliseSeku, wabuza, wathi, Baphi na ooSamuweli noDavide? Kwathiwa, Nabaya eNayoti ngaseRama. 19:23 Waya khona eNayoti ngaseRama, uMoya kaThixo wamfikela naye; wahamba ehamba eprofeta, wada wafika eNayoti ngaseRama. 19:24 Wazihluba naye iingubo zakhe, waprofeta naye phambi koSamuweli, wawa phantsi eze yonke loo mini, nobo busuku bonke. Ngenxa yoko kwathiwa, Ukubaprofeti noSawule na?

20:1 Wabaleka uDavide eNayoti ngaseRama, weza, wathi phambi koYonatan, Ndenze ntoni na? Buyini na ubugwenxa bam? Siyini na isono sam phambi koyihlo, ukuba angxamele umphefumlo wam nje? 20:2 Wathi yena kuye, Makube lee oko; akuyi kufa. Uyabona, ubawo akenzi nenkulu into, nencinane into, angayityhileli indlebe yam; ubawo uyifihleleni na ke le nto kum? Akunjalo. 20:3 Wafunga phezu koko uDavide, wathi, Uyihlo uyazi kakuhle ukuba undibabale; uthi, Makangakwazi oku uYonatan, hleze abe buhlungu. Inene, ehleli nje uYehova, uhleli nje umphefumlo wakho, ngathi sisithuba esinye sokunyathela esiphakathi kwam nokufa. 20:4 Wathi uYonatan kuDavide, Into oyithethayo umphefumlo wakho, ndiya kuyenza. 20:5 Wathi uDavide kuYonatan, Uyabona, iya kuthwasa inyanga ngomso; ndifanele ukuhlala nokumkani, ndidle; ndindulule, ndiye kuzifihla endle, kude kuhlwe ngosuku lwesithathu. 20:6 Ukuba uyihlo uthe wandifuna, wothi wena, Ucele kum wandibongoza uDavide, ukuba agidime aye eBhetelehem emzini wakowabo; ngokuba kukho umbingelelo weminyaka ngeminyaka apho, owenzelwa umzi wonke wakowabo. 20:7 Ukuba uyihlo uthe, Kulungile: koba kuluxolo kumkhonzi wakho. Ke ukuba uthe wavutha kakhulu ngumsindo, yazi ukuba ugqibe kwelobubi. 20:8 Ngoko ke uze umenzele inceba umkhonzi wakho; ngokuba umngenise emnqophisweni kaYehova umkhozi wakho lo nawe. Ke ukuba buthe bakho kum ubugwenxa, ndibulale wena ngokwakho; yini na ukuba undise kuyihlo? 20:9 Wathi uYonatan, Makube lee kuwe; ukuba ndithe ndazi kakuhle ukuba ubawo ugqibe kwelokuba ufikelwe bububi, ndibe ndingekuxeleli na? 20:10 Wathi uDavide kuYonatan, Hi, ukuba uyihlo ukuphendule kalukhuni, ndoxelelwa ngubani na? 20:11 Wathi uYonatan kuDavide, Hamba, siphume siye ezindle. Baphuma bobabini baya ezindle. 20:12 Wathi uYonatan kuDavide, Yehova, Thixo kaSirayeli! Xa ndithe ndamgocagoca ubawo malunga neli xesha ngomso nangomsomnye, kwabonakala ukuba kulungile kuDavide, ndaza andathumela kuwe, ndiyityhilele indlebe yakho: 20:13 makenjenje uYehova kuYonatan, makaqokele ukwenjenje. Xa kuthe kwalunga kubawo ukuba akwenze ububi, ndoyityhilela indlebe yakho, ndikundulule, uhambe unoxolo; uYehova makabe nawe, njengokuba ebenobawo. 20:14 Wanga ungathi, ukuba ndisaphilile, undenzele inceba kaYehova; 20:15 ungathi, ndakufa, uyinqumle inceba yakho endlwini yam nanini, ungenjenjalo nasekuzinqamleni kukaYehova iintshaba zikaDavide zonke ngazinye, ebusweni bomhlaba. 20:16 Wanqophisana ke uYonatan nendlu kaDavide, esithi, UYehova makakubuze ke oku esandleni seentshaba zikaDavide. 20:17 Waphinda uYonatan ukumfungisa uDavide ngokumthanda kwakhe; ngokuba ebemthanda njengomphefumlo wakhe. 20:18 UYonatan wathi kuye, Ngomso iya kuthwasa inyanga; uya kubuzwa, ngokuba isihlalo sakho siya kuba sodwa. 20:19 Ngomhla wesithathu uze uhle kamsinya, uye kuloo ndawo wawuzifihle kuyo ngemini yomsebenzi lowa, uhlale ecaleni lelitye le-Ezeli; 20:20 ndizitolele ecaleni lalo iintolo zontathu, ndinge ndizixunela etekenini. 20:21 Yabona, ndiya kumthuma umfana, ndithi, Yiya, uzithabathe iintolo. Ukuba ndithe kumfana, Nanzi iintolo, zinganeno kwakho, zithabathe: woza wena; ngokuba koba kuluxolo kuwe, akukho nto, ehleli nje uYehova. 20:22 Ke ukuba ndithe kwindodana leyo, Nanzo iintolo zingaphaya kwakho: hamba, ngokuba uYehova woba ukundulule. 20:23 Ke ilizwi eliya silithethileyo mna nawe, yabona, uYehova uphakathi kwam nawe kude kuse ephakadeni. 20:24 Wazimela ke uDavide ezindle. Yathwasa inyanga; wahlala ukumkani esidlweni ukuba adle. 20:25 Wahlala ukumkani esihlalweni sakhe njengezinye izihlandlo, esihlalweni saseludongeni. Wesuka wema uYonatan. Wahlala uAbhinere ecaleni likaSawule, yayodwa, indawo kaDavide. 20:26 Akathetha nto uSawule ngaloo mini; ngokuba ebesithi, Uhlelwe yinto; akahlambulukile, inene, akahlambulukile. 20:27 Kwathi ngengomso, iselithwasile nenyanga ngosuku lwesibini, ayaba namntu indawo kaDavide. Wathi uSawule kuYonatan, unyana wakhe, Yini na ukuba angezi kudla unyana kaYese nayizolo nanamhla? 20:28 UYonatan wamphendula uSawule, wathi, UDavide ucele kum, wandibongoza ukuba aye eBhetelehem; 20:29 wathi, Khawundiyeke ndiye; ngokuba kukho umbingelelo wemizalwane yakowethu ekhaya; ke yena umkhuluwa wam undiwisele umthetho; kaloku ukuba undibabale, makhe ndigidime, ndibone umkhuluwa wam. Kungenxa yoko angezanga etafileni yokumkani. 20:30 Wavutha ke umsindo kaSawule kuYonatan, wathi kuye, Nyana wegwenxakazi eligwilikileyo, andazi yini na ukuba unyana kaYese umnyulele ukuba abe lihlazo lakho, nehlazo lobuze bonyoko? 20:31 Kuba yonke imihla, unyana kaYese aya kudla ubomi ngayo emhlabeni, akuyi kuqiniseka wena nobukumkani bakho. Thumela ngoko, umzise kum, ngokuba engumntwana wokufa. 20:32 UYonatan wamphendula uSawule uyise, wathi kuye, Yini na ukuba abulawe? ufa ngani na? 20:33 USawule wabinza ngentshuntshe ukuba atsho kuye. Wazi uYonatan, ukuba uyise ugqibe kwelokuba ambulale uDavide. 20:34 UYonatan wesuka ke etafileni evutha ngumsindo; akadla kudla ngomhla wesibini wenyanga; ngokuba ubebuhlungu ngoDavide, kuba uyise ubemhlazisile. 20:35 Kwathi ngengomso, waphuma uYonatan waya ezindle, ukuba ahlangane noDavide, enomfana omncinane. 20:36 Wathi kumfana, Khawubaleke, uzithabathe iintolo endizixunayo. Umfana wabaleka; ke yena wazixuna iintolo, ukuze zigqithe kuye. 20:37 Wafika umfana kuloo ndawo belukuyo utolo abeluxunile uYonatan. Wamemeza uYonatan kumfana, wathi, Nalo ngaphaya kwakho utolo. 20:38 Wamemeza uYonatan kumfana, wathi, Khawuleza, ngxama, musa ukuma. Umfana wakwaYonatan waluchola utolo, waluzisa enkosini yakhe. 20:39 Umfana ubengazi nto. NguYonatan noDavide ababeyazi loo nto. 20:40 UYonatan wayinikela impahla yakhe umfana lo abenaye, wathi kuye, Hamba uyise ekhaya. Waya umfana lowo. 20:41 Wesuka uDavide, evela ecaleni langasezantsi, wawa ngobuso emhlabeni, waqubuda izihlandlo zozithathu; bangana, balilelana, wada uDavide watsho kakhulu. 20:42 Wathi uYonatan kuDavide, Hamba unoxolo; makume esikufungele igama likaYehova thina sobabini, sisithi, UYehova makabe phakathi kwam nawe, naphakathi kwembewu yam nembewu yakho, kude kuse ephakadeni. Wesuka ke wahamba. Ke uYonatan waya ekhaya.

21:1 UDavide waya eNobhi kuAhimeleki, umbingeleli. UAhimeleki wamkhawulela uDavide egubha, wathi kuye, Yini na ukuba uze wedwa, kungekho ndoda ihamba nawe. 21:2 Wathi uDavide kuAhimeleki, umbingeleli, Ukumkani undiwisele umthetho ngento, wathi kum, Makungabikho mntu wazi ni yani ngale nto ndikuthumayo, ndikuwiseleyo umthetho ngayo; ke abafana ndibayalele ekuthini nasekuthini. 21:3 Kaloku kukho ntoni na phantsi kwesandla sakho? Ndinike esandleni izonka zibe zihlanu, nokuba yintoni efumanekayo. 21:4 Umbingeleli wamphendula uDavide, wathi kuye, Akukho sonka sisesabantu bonke phantsi kwesandla sam; sesingcwele sodwa isonka esikhoyo; ukuba abafana bathe kodwa bazigcina kubafazi. 21:5 UDavide wamphendula umbingeleli, wathi kuye, Inene abafazi bathintelekile ukuza kuthi ezi ntsuku zontathu; ekuphumeni kwam ibingcwele impahla yabafana; nokuba ibiyindlela yabantu bonke, yosuka ingcwaliswe yimpahla le namhla. 21:6 Umbingeleli wamnika ke esingcwele; ngokuba bekungekho zonka khona ezingezizo zokubonisa, ezibe zisuswe phambi koYehova, ukuba kumiswe izonka ezishushu ngemini yokuthatyathwa kwazo. 21:7 Ke kaloku kwaye kuvalelwe khona indoda yakubakhonzi bakaSawule ngaloo mini phambi koYehova, egama belinguDowegi umEdom, inganga yabalusi bakaSawule. 21:8 Wathi uDavide kuAhimeleki, Akukho ntshuntshe nakrele na apha phantsi kwesandla sakho? Kuba ikrele lam kwaneentonga zam andiziphathanga; ngokuba umcimbi kakumkani ungxamisekile. 21:9 Wathi umbingeleli, Ikrele likaGoliyati umFilisti, owambulala entilini kaEla, nali lisongelwe engutyeni emva kwe-efodi. Ukuba uyalithabatha, lithabathe; ngokuba akukho limbi. Wathi uDavide, Akukho linjengalo, ndinike lona. 21:10 Wesuka uDavide, wabaleka ngaloo mini ebusweni bukaSawule, waya kuAkishe ukumkani waseGati. 21:11 Bathi abakhonzi baka-Akishe kuye, Asinguye na lo uDavide, ukumkani welizwe? Asinguye na lo babevuma ngaye ekungqungqeni, besithi, USawule ubulele amawaka akhe, UDavide ubulele amawaka akhe angamashumi? 21:12 UDavide wawagcina loo mazwi entliziyweni yakhe, woyika kunene ebusweni buka-Akishe, ukumkani waseGati. 21:13 Waziphambanisa ing
