1 Ke kaloku akuthandaza uEzra, akukuxela oku, elila, eziwisile phambi kwendlu kaThixo, kwabuthelana kuye kumaSirayeli ibandla elikhulu kakhulu lamadoda, nabafazi, nabantwana, ngokuba abantu batsho ngesililo esikhulu.
2 Waphendula uShekaniya unyana kaYehiyeli, owoonyana bakaElam, wathi kuEzra, Senze ubumenemene kuThixo wethu, sazeka abafazi bezinye iintlanga ezizweni zelizwe eli; kodwa kusekho ithemba kumaSirayeli ngale nto.
3 Masimenzele ngoku umnqophiso uThixo wethu, wokuba sibakhuphe bonke abafazi nabazelwe ngabo, ngokwecebo lenkosi yam, nelabagubhela imithetho yoThixo wethu; makwenziwe ngokomyalelo.
4 Vuka, ngokuba le nto iphezu kwakho; singakuwe; yomelela, wenze.
5 Wavuka uEzra, wabafungisa abathetheli bababingeleli, nababaLevi, nabamaSirayeli onke, ukuba benze ngokwelo lizwi; bafunga ke.
6 Wesuka uUEzra phambi kwendlu kaThixo, wangena egumbini likaYohanan unyana kaEliyashibhi. Wathi akufika khona, akadla sonka, akasela manzi; ngokuba ubesenza isijwili ngenxa yobumenemene babo bafuduswayo.
7 Bahambisa ilizwi kwaYuda naseYerusalem, kubo bonke oonyana basemfudusweni, lokuba babuthelane eYerusalem;
8 bathi, bonke abathe abeza ngesithuba semihla emithathu, ngokwecebo labathetheli nelamadoda amakhulu, mayisingelwe phantsi yonke impahla yabo; ke bona ngokwabo bahlulwe nebandla lasemfudusweni.
9 Abuthelana eYerusalem onke amadoda akwaYuda nawakwaBhenjamin ngeentsuku ezintathu; yaye iyinyanga yesithoba, ngowamashumi amabini umhla wenyanga leyo. Bahlala bonke abantu ebaleni lendlu kaThixo, bengcangcazela yile nto, naziimvula.
10 Wesuka wema uUEzra umbingeleli, wathi kubo, Nenze ubumenemene; nizeke abafazi bezinye iintlanga, ukuze nongeze etyaleni lamaSirayeli.
11 Mzukiseni ngokunje uYehova, uThixo wooyihlo, nenze okukholekileyo kuye, nizahlule kwizizwe zeli lizwe, nakubafazi bezinye iintlanga.
12 Laphendula lonke ibandla, lathi ngezwi elikhulu, Kufanelekile kuthi, ukuba senze ngokwelizwi lakho;
13 kodwa abantu baninzi, yaye ilixesha lemvula, akunakumiwa phandle; lo msebenzi asingowemini enye, asingoweemini ezimbini; ngokuba sone kakhulu ngale nto.
14 Abathetheli bethu ke mabalimele ibandla lonke; bathi bonke emizini yethu, abazeke abafazi bezinye iintlanga, beze ngamaxesha amisiweyo, benamadoda amakhulu emizi ngemizi, nabagwebi bayo, kude kubuyiswe kuthi ukuvutha komsindo woThixo wethu, isekho nje le nto.
15 NgooYonatan unyana ka-Asayeli, noYazeya unyana kaTikwa, bodwa abamelana nelo lizwi; ooMeshulam, noShabhetayi umLevi, bebancedisa.
16 Benjenjalo ke oonyana basemfudusweni. Kwahlulwa ooUEzra umbingeleli, namadoda aziintloko zezindlu zooyise ngokwezindlu zooyise, bonke bephela, bebalulwe ngamagama, bahlala phantsi ngomhla wokuqala wenyanga yeshumi ukuyibuza le nto.
17 Bayigqiba into yonke yamadoda abezeke abafazi bezinye iintlanga, elusukwini lokuqala lwenyanga yokuqala.
