1 Ngemihla yakhe kwenyuka uNebhukadenetsare, ukumkani weBhabheli. UYehoyakim waba ngumkhonzi kuye iminyaka emithathu, wabuya wagwilika kuye.
2 UYehova wamthumela izimpi zamaKaledi, nezimpi zama-Aram, nezimpi zakwaMowabhi, nezimpi zoonyana baka-Amon, wazithumela elakwaYuda, ukuba zilitshabalalise ngokwelizwi likaYehova, awalithethayo ngabakhonzi bakhe abaprofeti.
3 Kwaye kungomlomo kaYehova wodwa ukwenzeka kwale nto kumaYuda, ukuba awasuse ebusweni bakhe ngenxa yezono zikaManase, njengako konke awakwenzayo;
4 nangenxa yegazi elingenatyala awaliphalazayo; wayizalisa iYerusalem ngegazi elingenatyala; akavumanga uYehova ukuxolela.
5 Ezinye izinto zikaYehoyakim, nako konke awakwenzayo, azibhalwanga na encwadini yemicimbi yemihla yookumkani bakwaYuda?
6 Walala uYehoyakim kooyise; uYehoyakin, unyana wakhe, waba ngukumkani esikhundleni sakhe.
7 Akabanga saphinda ukumkani waseYiputa aphume ezweni lakhe; ngokuba ukumkani waseBhabheli wayezithimbile zonke izinto ezizezokumkani waseYiputa, eqalele emlanjeni waseYiputa, wada wesa emlanjeni ongumEfrati.
8 UYehoyakin ubeminyaka ilishumi elinesibhozo ezelwe, ukuba ngukumkani kwakhe; zantathu iinyanga engukumkani eYerusalem. Igama lonina belinguNehushta, intombi kaElinatan waseYerusalem.
9 Wenza okubi emehlweni kaYehova, njengako konke awakwenzayo uyise.
10 Ngelo xesha benyuka abakhonzi bakaNebhukadenetsare, ukumkani waseBhabheli, beza eYerusalem; wangqingwa umzi lowo.
11 Wawufikela uNebhukadenetsare ukumkani waseBhabheli, bewungqingile abakhonzi bakhe.
12 Waphuma uYehoyakin, ukumkani wakwaYuda, waya kukumkani waseBhabheli, yena nonina, nabakhonzi bakhe, nabathetheli bakhe, nababusi bakhe; ukumkani waseBhabheli wamthabatha ke ngomnyaka wesibhozo wobukumkani bakhe.
13 Warhola khona bonke ubuncwane bendlu kaYehova, nobuncwane bendlu yokumkani; wazinqunqa zonke iimpahla zegolide, awazenzayo uSolomon ukumkani wakwaSirayeli etempileni kaYehova, njengoko wakuthethayo uYehova.
14 Wayifudusa yonke iYerusalem, nabathetheli bonke, namagorha onke anobukroti, ishumi lamawaka abathinjwa, zonke iingcibi nabakhandi; akwasala mntu, yaba ngamahlwempu elizwe odwa asalayo.
15 Wamfudusa uYehoyakin, wamsa eBhabheli, nonina wokumkani, nabafazi bokumkani, nababusi bakhe, neenjengele zelizwe; wabafudusa eYerusalem abathinjwa abo, wabasa eBhabheli;
16 namadoda onke anobukroti angamawaka asixhenxe, neengcibi nabakhandi abaliwaka, onke amagorha anokulwa; abo ukumkani waseBhabheli wabasa bengabathinjwa eBhabheli.
17 Ukumkani waseBhabheli wamenza uMataniya, uyisekazi kaYehoyakin, ukumkani esikhundleni sakhe; waliguqula igama lakhe languZedekiya.
18 UZedekiya ubeminyaka imashumi mabini anamnye ezelwe, ukuba ngukumkani kwakhe; waba neminyaka elishumi elinamnye engukumkani eYerusalem. Igama lonina belinguHamutali, intombi kaYeremiya waseLibhena.
19 Wenza okubi emehlweni kaYehova, njengako konke awakwenzayo uYehoyakim.
20 Ngokuba ngenxa yomsindo kaYehova kwenzeka oko eYerusalem nakwaYuda, wada wabalahla ebusweni bakhe. UZedekiya wamana egwilika kukumkani waseBhabheli.
