1 Ke kaloku ukumkanikazi waseShebha waluva udaba lukaSolomon, olusingisele kwigama likaYehova, weza ukumlinga ngemibuzo elukhuni.
2 Wafika eYerusalem enesihlwele esinzima kunene, esineenkamela ezithwele ubulawu, negolide eninzi kunene, namatye anqabileyo. Weza kuSolomon, wathetha naye konke okube kusentliziyweni yakhe.
3 USolomon wamtyhilela onke amazwi akhe; akubangakho lizwi lifihlakeleyo kukumkani, angabanga nakumtyhilela lona.
4 Wabubona ukumkanikazi waseShebha bonke ubulumko bukaSolomon, nendlu abeyakhile,
5 nokudla kwetafile yakhe, nokuhlala kwabakhonzi bakhe, nokuma kwabalungiseleli bakhe, nezambatho zabo, nabangcamli bakhe, nezinyuko zakhe abenyuka ngazo ukuya endlwini kaYehova; akwaba sabakho kuqina kwamxhelo kuye.
6 Wathi kukumkani, Libe liyinene ilizwi endaliva, ezweni lam, lezinto zakho nobulumko bakho.
7 Andikholwanga ngamazwi lawo, ndada ndeza, abona amehlo am; uyabona, bendingaxelelwanga nesiqingatha esi. Ulugqithile ngobulumko nangokulunga udada ebendiluvile.
8 Anoyolo amadoda akho, banoyolo aba bakhonzi bakho bemiyo phambi kwakho amaxesha onke, bebuva ubulumko bakho.
9 Makabongwe uYehova uThixo wakho, okunoneleleyo, wakubeka etroneni yakwaSirayeli ngokuwathanda kwakhe amaSirayeli ngonaphakade, wakumisa waba ngukumkani, ukuba wenze okusesikweni nobulungisa.
10 Ukumkanikazi wamnika ukumkani ikhulu elinamanci amabini eetalente zegolide, nasebulawini into eninzi kunene, namatye anqabileyo; akuzanga kube saziswa bulawu bungangobo ukuba buninzi kwabo, obo ukumkanikazi waseShebha wabunika ukumkani uSolomon.
11 Kananjalo isinqanawa sikaHiram, esathutha igolide kwaOfire, savela kwaOfire nemialmugi emininzi kunene, namatye anqabileyo.
12 Imialmugi leyo ukumkani wayenza iintsika zendlu kaYehova, nezeyendlu yokumkani, neehadi nemirhubhe yeemvumi; akuzanga kube saziswa mialmugi injalo, akubonwanga injalo unanamhla.
13 Ke ukumkani uSolomon wamnika ukumkanikazi waseShebha konke akunanzileyo, awakucelayo; kukodwa khona awamnikayo ngokwamandla okuba engukumkani uSolomon. Wajika ke, waya ezweni lakhe, yena nabakhonzi bakhe.
14 Ke kaloku ukulinganiswa kwegolide, eyeza kuSolomon ngamnyaka mnye, kwaba ngamakhulu mathandathu anamanci mathandathu anesithandathu iitalente zegolide.
15 Iyodwa eyabarhwebi, neyentengiso yabathengisi, neyookumkani bonke bomxukuxela, neyamabamba elizwe.
16 Ukumkani uSolomon wenza amakhulu amabini amakhaka egolide engumkhando: zangamakhulu amathandathu iishekele zegolide, awaleka ngazo khaka linye.
17 Wenza amakhulu amathathu eengweletshetshe zegolide engumkhando; zaba ntathu iimina zegolide, awaleka ngazo ngweletshetshe-nye. Ukumkani wazibeka endlwini yehlathi laseLebhanon.
18 Ukumkani wenza itrone enkulu ngeempondo zeendlovu, wayaleka ngegolide engcwengiweyo.
19 Itrone leyo ibinezinyuko ezithandathu; itrone leyo ibinomphezulu oyinqila ngasemva. Kukho iingalo ngapha nangapha kwendawo yokuhlala; kumi iingonyama ezimbini ecaleni leengalo ezo.
20 Kumi iingonyama ezilishumi elinambini khona ezinyukweni ezithandathu, ngapha nangapha; akuzanga kwenziwe nto injalo ezikumkanini zonke.
21 Yonke impahla yokusela yokumkani uSolomon yabe iyeyegolide, nempahla yonke yendlu yehlathi laseLebhanon yabe iyeyegolide ecikizekileyo; bekungekho yasilivere; ibingento yakonto yona ngemihla kaSolomon.
22 Ngokuba ukumkani ubenesinqanawa saseTarshishe elwandle, ndawonye nesinqanawa sikaHiram; seza kanye ngeminyaka emithathu isinqanawa eso saseTarshishe, sithwele igolide, nesilivere, neempondo zeendlovu, neentsimango, neepikoko.
23 Waba mkhulu ke ukumkani uSolomon, ngaphezu kookumkani bonke behlabathi, ngobutyebi nangobulumko.
24 Lonke ihlabathi laye lifuna ubuso bukaSolomon, ukuba live ubulumko bakhe, awayebubeke entliziyweni yakhe uThixo.
25 Bazisa elowo umnikelo wakhe; iimpahla zesilivere, neempahla zegolide, nezambatho, nezikrweqe, nobulawu, namahashe, noondlebende, into yeminyaka ngeminyaka.
26 USolomon wahlanganisa iinqwelo zokulwa namahashe akhwelwayo, waba newaka elinamakhulu amane eenqwelo zokulwa, namawaka alishumi elinamabini amahashe akhwelwayo; wazibeka ezo zinto emizini yeenqwelo zokulwa, nakukumkani eYerusalem.
27 Ukumkani wayenza isilivere yanjengamatye eYerusalem, nemisedare wayenza yanjengemithombe esesihlanjeni, ukuba mininzi.
28 Amahashe abenawo uSolomon avela eYiputa; laza iqela labathengela ukumkani lalithabatha iqela ngalinye ngenani elithile.
29 Kwenyuka kwaphuma inqwelo yokulwa eYiputa ngamakhulu amathandathu eeshekele zesilivere, nehashe ngekhulu elinamanci mahlanu; benjenjalo bona ngokwabo ukubathuthela ookumkani bonke bamaHeti, nookumkani bama-Aram.
