1 Kwathi, akuva uSanebhalati ukuba siyalwakha udonga, wasuka wavutha umsindo wakhe, waqumba kunene, wawangcikiva amaYuda.
2 Wathetha phambi kwabazalwana bakhe nempi yakwaSamari, wathi, Enza ntoni na la maYuda antshwenyileyo? ozinqabisa na? obingelela na? ogqiba namhla na? owavusa na amatye kwezi mfumba zothuli, etshile nje?
3 Ke uTobhiya umAmon, engakuye, wathi, Nale nto ayakhayo, kungathi kunyuke impungutye le, iluqhekeze udonga lwawo lwamatye.
4 Yiva, Thixo wethu; ngokuba sideliwe, ukubuyisele ezintlokweni zabo ukungcikiva kwabo, ubanikele ekuphangweni elizweni labathinjwa.
5 Musa ukubuselela ubugwenxa babo; musa ukusicima isono sabo phambi kwakho; ngokuba bakuqumbisile phambi kwabakhi.
6 Salwakha ke udonga, lwadityaniswa lonke udonga, kwesa esiqingatheni sokuphakama kwalo. Abantu babenentliziyo yokusebenza.
7 Kwathi, akuva uSanebhalati, noTobhiya, nama-Arabhi, nama-Amon, nama-Ashdode, ukuba ziyenyuswa iindonga zeYerusalem; ukuba ziqaliwe, ziyavingcwa iintanda: wavutha umsindo wabo kunene.
8 Bacebisana kunye bonke bephela, ukuba beze kulwa neYerusalem, bayonakalise.
9 Sathandaza kuThixo wethu, samisa abokulinda imini nobusuku ngenxa yabo.
10 Athi amaYuda, Amandla abathwali bemithwalo ayetha, inkunkuma ininzi; thina asinakulwakha udonga.
11 Ababandezeli bethu abo babesithi, Akayi kwazi, akayi kubona, side singene phakathi kwawo, siwabulale, siwumise umsebenzi.
12 Kwathi, akuza amaYuda abehleli emacaleni abo, athetha kuthi izihlandlo zalishumi, ephuma ezindaweni zonke, esithi, Buyelani kuthi.
13 Ndesuka, ndamisa ezindaweni ezisezantsi emva kodonga, ezindaweni ezibalelelwa lilanga, ndamisa abantu ngokwemizalwane, benamakrele abo, nezikhali zabo, nezaphetha zabo.
14 Ndakhangela, ndasuka ndathi kubanumzana, nakubaphathi, nakwabanye abantu, Musani ukuboyika; khumbulani iNkosi enkulu eyoyikekayo, nilwele abazalwana benu, noonyana benu, neentombi zenu, nabafazi benu, nezindlu zenu.
15 Kwathi, zakuva iintshaba zethu ukuba siyazi thina, nokuba uThixo ulitshitshisile iqhinga lazo, sabuyela sonke siphela eludongeni, elowo emsebenzini wakhe.
16 Kwathi, ukususela kuloo mini, esinye isiqingatha samadodana akwam sasebenza emsebenzini, esinye isiqingatha saphatha izikhali, neengweletshetshe, izaphetha, neengubo zentsimbi; kananjalo abaphathi babeyixhasile yonke indlu kaYuda.
17 Ke aba babesakha eludongeni, nabathwala imithwalo, babethwala ngesinye isandla esibe sisebenza emsebenzini, baphathe izikhali ngesinye;
18 nabakhi babesakha, benxibe elowo ikrele lakhe esinqeni sakhe. Ovuthela isigodlo ubesecaleni lam.
19 Ndathi kubanumzana, nakubaphathi, nakwabanye abantu, Umsebenzi lo mkhulu, ubanzi; thina sithe saa eludongeni, omnye ekude komnye.
20 Endaweni enithe neva ilizwi lesigodlo, nobuthelana kuyo kum; uThixo wosilwela.
21 Sasisebenza emsebenzini, isiqingatha sawo siphethe izikhali, siqalela ekuphumeni kwesifingo, sizise ekuveleni kweenkwenkwezi.
22 Kananjalo ndathi ngelo xesha ebantwini, Elowo nendodana yakwakhe makalale phakathi eYerusalem ebusuku, ukuze babe ngabalindi kuthi ebusuku, emini babe semsebenzini.
23 Ke mna, nabazalwana bam, namadodana akwam, namadoda alindayo abendilandela, sibe singazikhululi iingubo zethu. Elowo ebenekrele lakhe kwesokunene.
