1 Ke kaloku ukumkani uSolomon wathanda abafazi abaninzi bezinye iintlanga, ndawonye nentombi kaFaro: amaMowabhikazi, nama-Amonikazi, namaEdomikazi, namaTsidonikazi, namaHetikazi;
2 ezintlangeni, abethe uYehova koonyana bakaSirayeli, Ize ningangeni kuzo, nazo zingangeni kuni; inene, zozitsalela koothixo bazo iintliziyo zenu. Wanamathela kubo abo uSolomon ngothando.
3 Wayenabafazi abamakhulu asixhenxe, amakhosikazi; namakhulu amathathu amashweshwe; abafazi bakhe bayityekisa ke intliziyo yakhe.
4 Kwathi, ngexesha lobudala bukaSolomon, abafazi bakhe bayityekisela intliziyo yakhe ekulandeleni thixo bambi; intliziyo yakhe ayaphelela kuYehova uThixo wakhe, njengentliziyo kaDavide uyise.
5 USolomon walandela uAshtoreti, uthixo wamaTsidon; walandela uMoleki, izothe lama-Amon.
6 Wenza okubi emehlweni kaYehova; akamlandela uYehova ngokukholisekileyo, njengoDavide uyise.
7 Waza uSolomon wamakhela isiganga uKemoshe, izothe lamaMowabhi, entabeni ekhangelene neYerusalem, noMoleki, izothe loonyana baka-Amon.
8 Wabenjela njalo bonke abafazi bakhe bezinye iintlanga, ababeqhumisela bebingelela koothixo babo.
9 UYehova ke waba nomsindo kuSolomon, ngokuba ibityekile intliziyo yakhe, yemka kuYehova uThixo kaSirayeli, owayebonakele kuye izihlandlo ezibini;
10 emwisele umthetho ngaloo nto, ukuba angalandeli thixo bambi; akawugcina umthetho abemwisele wona uYehova.
11 Wathi ke uYehova kuSolomon, Ngenxa enokuba unaloo nto, akwawugcina umnqophiso wam, nemimiselo yam endikumiseleyo, okwenene, ndiya kubukrazula ubukumkani kuwe, ndibunike umkhonzi wakho.
12 Kodwa ke andiyi kukwenza oko ngemihla yakho, ngenxa kaDavide uyihlo; ndiya kubukrazula esandleni sonyana wakho.
13 Kodwa andiyi kubukrazula bonke ubukumkani; ndomnika isizwe esinye unyana wakho, ngenxa kaDavide umkhonzi wam, nangenxa yeYerusalem endiyinyulileyo.
14 Ke uYehova wamvelisela uSolomon utshaba olunguHadade umEdom; yena ubengowembewu yokumkani kwaEdom.
15 Kwakuthe, oko uDavide ebekwaEdom, ekunyukeni kukaYowabhi umthetheli-mkhosi eye kungcwaba abahlatyiweyo, waxabela yonke into engamadoda kwaEdom
16 (ngokuba wahlala iinyanga zantandathu khona uYowabhi namaSirayeli onke, wada wayinqumla yonke into engamadoda kwaEdom);
17 wabaleka uHadade, yena namaEdom akubakhonzi boyise kunye naye, baya eYiputa; ke uHadade waye eyinkwenkwana oko.
18 Besuka kwaMidiyan, beza eParan; bathabatha amadoda eParan, ahamba nabo; beza eYiputa kuFaro, ukumkani waseYiputa. Yena ke wamnika indlu, wathi makazuze ukudla, wamnika ilizwe.
19 UHadade wababalwa kakhulu nguFaro; wamnika umfazi, umsakwabo bomkakhe, umsakwabo boTapenes inkosikazi.
20 Ke umsakwabo boTapenes wamzalela uGenubhati, unyana wakhe; uTapenes wamlumlela endlwini kaFaro, uGenubhati waba ngowendlu kaFaro phakathi koonyana bakaFaro.
21 UHadade eseYiputa, weva ukuba uDavide ulele kooyise, ufile noYowabhi umthetheli-mkhosi; wathi uHadade kuFaro, Ndindulule ndiye ezweni lakowethu.
22 Wathi uFaro kuye, Uswele ntoni na kum, le nto ufuna ukuya ezweni lakowenu? Wathi, yena, Nento le; noko ke ndindulule.
23 UThixo wamvelisela omnye umchasi onguRezon, unyana kaEliyada, owabalekayo kuHadadezere, ukumkani waseTsobha, inkosi yakhe.
24 Wabuthela kuye amadoda, waba ngumthetheli wempi, ekubabulaleni kukaDavide abo. Baya ke eDamasko, bahlala khona, baba nobukumkani eDamasko.
25 Waba lutshaba lwamaSirayeli yonke imihla kaSolomon; ke ngobu bubi wabenzayo uHadade, wakruquka ngamaSirayeli; waye engukumkani kwa-Aram.
26 NoYarobheham, unyana kaNebhati, umEfrayim waseTsereda, umkhonzi kaSolomon, ogama lonina belinguTseruya, umhlolokazi, wasiphakamisa isandla kukumkani.
27 Nantsi ke imbangi yokuba amphakamisele isandla ukumkani. USolomon wayesakha iMilo, wavala ithuba lomzi kaDavide uyise.
28 Ke le ndoda inguYarobheham ibiligorha elinobukroti. Wayibona uSolomon le ndodana, ukuba iyasebenza, wayenza umphathi womthwalo wonke wendlu kaYosefu.
29 Kwathi ngelo xesha, uYarobheham waphuma eYerusalem; wathi uAhiya waseShilo, umprofeti, wamfumana endleleni; wayambethe ke ingubo entsha; baye bobabini bebodwa endle.
30 Wesuka uAhiya, wayibamba loo ngubo intsha abenayo, wayiqwenga; yaziziqwenga ezilishumi elinazibini.
31 Wathi uAhiya kuYarobheham, Zithabathele iziqwenga zibe lishumi: ngokuba utsho uYehova uThixo kaSirayeli, ukuthi, Yabona, ndiya kubukrazula ubukumkani esandleni sikaSolomon, ndikunike izizwe zibe lishumi;
32 esinye isizwe sibe kuye ngenxa yomkhonzi wam uDavide, nangenxa yeYerusalem, umzi endiwunyulileyo ezizweni zonke zakwaSirayeli.
33 Ndibukrazula ngenxa enokuba bendishiyile mna, baqubuda kuAshtoreti, uthixo wamaMowabhi, nakuMilikom, uthixo woonyana baka-Amon; abahamba ngeendlela zam, ukuba benze okuthe tye ngeendlela zam, ukuba benze okuthe tye emehlweni am, nemimiselo yam, namasiko am, njengoDavide uyise.
34 Andiyi kubuthabatha bonke ubukumkani esandleni sakhe; ndomenza abe sisikhulu yonke imihla yobomi bakhe, ngenxa kaDavide umkhonzi wam endamnyulayo, owayigcinayo imithetho yam nemimiselo yam.
35 Ndobuthabatha ubukumkani esandleni sonyana wakhe, ndinike wena izizwe ezilishumi ke;
36 unyana wakhe ndimnike isizwe esinye, ukuze kubekho isibane kuDavide, umkhonzi wam, yonke imihla phambi kwam eYerusalem, umzi endiwunyulileyo ukuba ndibeke khona igama lam.
37 Ndokuthabatha, ube ngukumkani kuko konke othe wakunqwenela umphefumlo wakho, ube ngukumkani kumaSirayeli.
38 Kothi, ukuba uthe wakuphulaphula konke endikuwisela umthetho ngako, wahamba ngeendlela zam, wenza okuthe tye emehlweni am, ukuba ugcine imimiselo yam nemithetho yam, njengoko wenza ngako uDavide umkhonzi wam: ndibe nawe, ndikwakhele indlu esimakade, njengoko ndamakhelayo uDavide, ndikunike amaSirayeli;
39 ndiyibandezele imbewu kaDavide ngenxa yoku; kodwa kungade kube ngonaphakade.
40 USolomon wafuna ukumbulala uYarobheham; wesuka uYarobheham wabalekela eYiputa kuShishaki, ukumkani weYiputa. Waba seYiputa wada wafa uSolomon.
41 Ezinye izinto zikaSolomon, nako konke awakwenzayo, nobulumko bakhe, azibhalwanga na encwadini yemicimbi kaSolomon?
42 Ke imihla abengukumkani ngayo uSolomon eYerusalem kumaSirayeli onke, yaba yiminyaka emashumi mane.
43 USolomon walala kooyise, wangcwatyelwa emzini kaDavide uyise; uRehabheham, unyana wakhe, waba ngukumkani esikhundleni sakhe.
