1 Kwathi ukuvela komnyaka, ngexesha lokuphuma kookumkani ukuya kulwa, uDavide wamthuma uYowabhi, nabakhonzi bakhe kunye naye, namaSirayeli onke, batshabalalisa oonyana baka-Amon, bayingqinga iRabha. UDavide wayehleli eYerusalem.
2 Kwathi ngexesha langokuhlwa, wavuka uDavide esililini sakhe, wahambahamba phezu kophahla lwendlu yokumkani. Wathi, eseluphahleni, wabona umfazi ezihlamba; ke umfazi lowo wayemhle kunene ngembonakalo.
3 Wathumela uDavide, wabuzisa ngaloo mfazi. Kwathiwa, Asinguye na uBhatshebha lowo, intombi kaEliham, umkaUriya umHeti?
4 UDavide wathuma abathunywa, wamthabatha; weza ke yena kuye, walala naye. Akuba ezingcwalisile ebunqambini bakhe, wabuyela endlwini yakhe.
5 Wamitha umfazi lowo; wathumela, waxelela uDavide, wathi, Ndimithi.
6 UDavide wathumela kuYowabhi, esithi, Thumela kum apha u-Uriya umHeti. UYowabhi wamthumela u-Uriya kuDavide.
7 Waya u-Uriya kuye. Wabuza uDavide ukuba unjani na uYowabhi, banjani na abantu, injani na imfazwe.
8 UDavide wathi ku-Uriya, Yihla uye endlwini yakho, uhlambe iinyawo zakho. Waphuma u-Uriya endlwini yokumkani; kwaphuma emva kwakhe isipho sokumkani.
9 U-Uriya walala emnyango wendlu yokumkani, nabakhonzi bonke benkosi yakhe; akehla aye endlwini yakhe.
10 Kwaxelwa kuDavide, kwathiwa, U-Uriya akehlanga aye endlwini yakhe. Wathi uDavide ku-Uriya, Akuveli eluhambeni na? Yini na ukuba ungehli uye endlwini yakho?
11 Wathi u-Uriya kuDavide, Ityeya namaSirayeli namaYuda ahleli eminqubeni, nenkosi yam uYowabhi nabakhonzi benkosi yam bahleli endle; mna ndiye endlwini yam, ndidle, ndisele, ndilale nomkam? Uhleli nje wena, uhleli nje umphefumlo wakho, andiyi kuyenza loo nto.
12 Wathi uDavide ku-Uriya, Hlala apha nanamhla, ndokundulula ngomso. Wahlala ke u-Uriya eYerusalem ngaloo mhla nangengomso.
13 UDavide wammema: wadla, wasela phambi kwakhe; wamnxilisa. Waphuma ngokuhlwa, waya kulala esililini sakhe nabakhonzi benkosi yakhe; akehla aye endlwini yakhe.
14 Kwathi kusasa, uDavide wabhala incwadi kuYowabhi, wayithumela ngesandla sikaUriya.
15 Wabhala ke encwadini, wathi, Mbekeni u-Uriya kweyona ndawo ishushu, angasisichenge kuyo emfazweni, nibuye umva, ukuze abinzwe afe.
16 Kwathi, ekuwungqingeni kukaYowabhi umzi lowo, wambeka u-Uriya kwindawo abesazi ukuba akuyo amadoda angamakroti.
17 Aphuma amadoda aloo mzi, alwa noYowabhi; kwawa abantu kubakhonzi bakaDavide; wafa noUriya umHeti.
18 Wathumela uYowabhi kuDavide, wamxelela zonke iindaba zemfazwe.
19 Wamwisela umthetho umthunywa, esithi, Xa ugqibileyo ukuzenza zonke iindaba zemfazwe kukumkani, wothi,
20 ukuba buthe benyuka ubushushu bokumkani, wathi kuwe, Ibiyini na ukuba nisondele kangaka kuloo mzi ngokulwa? beningazi na ukuba botola beseludongeni?
21 wabethwa ngubani na uAbhimeleki unyana kaYerubheshete? akagityiselwanga na yinkazana ngelitye lokusila eludongeni, wafela eTebhetse? ibiyini na ukuba nisondele kangaka eludongeni? uthi wena, Nomkhonzi wakho u-Uriya umHeti ufile naye.
22 Wahamba ke umthunywa, waya, wamxelela uDavide konke uYowabhi abemthume khona.
23 Wathi umthunywa kuDavide, Athi akuseyisa thina amadoda, aphuma eza kuthi phandle; saba phezu kwawo ke, sada sesa ekungeneni kwesango;
24 batola abatoli kubakhonzi bakho beseludongeni, kwafa inxenye kubakhonzi bokumkani; umkhonzi wakho u-Uriya umHeti ufile naye.
25 Wathi uDavide kumthunywa lowo, Wotsho kuYowabhi ukuthi, Mayingabi mbi emehlweni akho le ndawo; ngokuba ikrele eli lidla kulo nakulowa. Komeleze ukulwa kwakho, nomzi lowo uwuchithe; uze umomeleze ke.
26 Weva umkaUriya ukuba ufile u-Uriya indoda yakhe, wayimbambazelela indoda yakhe.
27 Lakudlula ixesha lezila lakhe, wathumela uDavide, wamthabathela endlwini yakhe, waba ngumkakhe, wamzalela unyana. Ke loo nto wayenzayo uDavide yaba mbi emehlweni kaYehova.
