1 Ngomnyaka weshumi elinesixhenxe kaPeka unyana kaRemaliya, waba ngukumkani uAhazi, unyana kaYotam, ukumkani wakwaYuda.
2 UAhazi ubeminyaka imashumi mabini ezelwe, ukuba ngukumkani kwakhe. Waba neminyaka elishumi linamithandathu engukumkani eYerusalem. Akakwenza okuthe tye emehlweni kaYehova uThixo wakhe, njengoDavide uyise.
3 Wahamba ngendlela yookumkani bakwaSirayeli; kananjalo wamcandisa emlilweni unyana wakhe, ngokwamasikizi eentlanga, awazigqogqayo uYehova phambi koonyana bakaSirayeli.
4 Wabingelela, waqhumisela ezigangeni, nasezindulini, naphantsi kwemithi yonke eluhlaza.
5 Kwaza kwenyuka uRetsin, ukumkani wakwa-Aram, noPeka unyana kaRemaliya, ukumkani wakwaSirayeli, beza kulwa eYerusalem; bamngqinga uAhazi, ababa nako ukumeyisa.
6 Ngelo xesha uRetsin ukumkani wakwa-Aram wayibuyisela iElati kuma-Aram, wawagxotha amaYuda e-Elati. Eza ama-Aram e-Elati, ahlala khona unanamhla.
7 Wathumela abathunywa uAhazi kuTigelate-pilezere ukumkani waseAsiriya, wathi, Ndingumkhonzi wakho, ndingunyana wakho; nyuka uze kundisindisa esandleni sokumkani wakwa-Aram, nasesandleni sokumkani wakwaSirayeli, abandivunukeleyo.
8 UAhazi wayithabatha isilivere negolide eyafumanekayo endlwini kaYehova, nasebuncwaneni bendlu yokumkani, wayithumela kukumkani waseAsiriya isisicengo.
9 Ukumkani waseAsiriya wamphulaphula; wenyuka ukumkani waseAsiriya waya eDamasko, wayithimba, wabafudusa abantu wabasa eKiri, wambulala uRetsin.
10 Ukumkani uAhazi waya kumhlangabeza uTigelate-pilezere, ukumkani waseAsiriya, eDamasko. Wabona isibingelelo esiseDamasko. UAhazi ukumkani wayithumela imfano yesibingelelo eso, isilinganiso saso ngokusetyenzwa kwaso konke, ku-Uriya umbingeleli.
11 Wasakha ke isibingelelo u-Uriya umbingeleli, njengako konke abemthumele khona uAhazi ukumkani eDamasko. Wenjenjalo u-Uriya umbingeleli, wada wafika ukumkani uAhazi evela eDamasko.
12 Weza ukumkani evela eDamasko, wasibona ukumkani isibingelelo eso; wasondela ukumkani kuso isibingelelo, wenyuka waya kuso;
13 waqhumisela ngedini lakhe elinyukayo nangomnikelo wakhe wokudla, wathulula umnikelo wakhe othululwayo, watshiza ngegazi lemibingelelo yakhe yoxolo esibingelelweni.
14 Ke isibingelelo sobhedu, esibe siphambi koYehova, wasisusa phambi kwendlu, phakathi kwesibingelelo sakhe nendlu kaYehova, wasisondeza, wasibeka ecaleni lesibingelelo ngentla.
15 UAhazi ukumkani wamwisela umthetho u-Uriya umbingeleli, wathi, Phezu kwesibingelelo esikhulu qhumisela ngedini elinyukayo lokusa, nangomnikelo wokudla wangokuhlwa, nangedini elinyukayo lokumkani, nangomnikelo wakhe wokudla, nangedini elinyukayo labantu bonke belizwe, nangomnikelo wabo wokudla, nangeminikelo yabo ethululwayo, utshize kuso ngegazi lonke ledini elinyukayo, negazi lonke lombingelelo; ke sona isibingelelo sobhedu ndiya kukha ndibuzise ngaso.
16 Wenza ke u-Uriya umbingeleli njengako konke awamwisela umthetho ngako ukumkani uAhazi.
17 Ukumkani uAhazi waziqhawula iipanele zeenqwelwana, wazisusa kuzo iingqayi; waluthula ulwandle ezinkomeni zobhedu, ezibe zingaphantsi kwalo, walubeka phezu kwesiseko samatye.
18 Igumbi elisithelisiweyo lesabatha, ababelakhe ngasendlwini, nendawo yokungena ukumkani ebingaphandle, wayishenxisela endlwini kaYehova, ngenxa yokumkani waseAsiriya.
19 Ezinye izinto zika-Ahazi awazenzayo, azibhalwanga na encwadini yemicimbi yemihla yookumkani bakwaYuda?
20 Walala uAhazi kooyise, wangcwatyelwa kooyise emzini kaDavide; waba ngukumkani uHezekiya unyana wakhe esikhundleni sakhe.
