Isahluko 19

1 Isihlabo esisingisele kwiYiputa. Bona ke uYehova ekhwele efini elinamendu, uza eYiputa. Ziya kudidizela izithixo ezingento zaseYiputa phambi kwakhe, intliziyo yeYiputa inyibilika phakathi kwayo.
2 AmaYiputa ndiya kuwaxhokonxela kwa-amaYiputa, alwe elowo nomzalwana wakhe, elowo nommelwane wakhe, umzi nomzi, ubukumkani nobukumkani.
3 Wothiwa qongqololo umoya wamaYiputa phakathi kwawo; ndiliginye icebo lawo, aquqele kwizithixo ezingento, nakwabadumze layo, nakwabaneshologu, nakoosiyazi;
4 ndiwavingcele amaYiputa ngesandla senkosi esilukhuni, alawulwe ngukumkani onengcwangu; itsho iNkosi, uYehova wemikhosi.
5 Aya kuthi qoko amanzi aselwandle, utshe wome umlambo;
6 zinuke izibhaxa zawo, iwuthe itshe imijelo yoMnayile waseYiputa, zishwabane iingcongolo nemikhanzi.
7 Iintili ezingakuMnayile, ngasechwebeni loMnayile, nento yonke ehlwayelweyo, iya koma, iphetshethwe ingabikho.
8 Baya kuncwina ababambisi beentlanzi, bambambazele bonke abaphosa iqherhu eMnayileni, bathi matshamatsha abaneka umnatha phezu kwamanzi.
9 Baya kudana abasebenzi beflakisi echazwayo, nabaluki belinen emhlophe;
10 zithiwe vithivithi iintsika zalo, ube buhlungu umphefumlo wabo bonke abasebenzela umvuzo.
11 Bazizimathane zodwa abathetheli baseTsohan; amaphakathi alumkileyo kaFaro, icebo labo libubutyhakala. Ningathini na ukuthi kuFaro, Ndingunyana wezilumko, ndingunyana wookumkani bamandulo?
12 Ziphi na, ziphi na ke izilumko zakho? Mazikuxelele kaloku, ziyazi into ayicebileyo uYehova wemikhosi ngeYiputa.
13 Bazizimathane abathetheli baseTsohan, balukuhliwe abathetheli baseNofu; bayilahlekisile iYiputa abayimbombo yezizwe zayo.
14 UYehova uthululele embilinini wayo umoya wobugwenxa, ukuba bayilahlekise iYiputa ekwenzeni kwayo konke, njengokugxadazela kwenxila emhlanzweni walo.
15 IYiputa ayiyi kuba nasenzo isenzayo intloko kwanomsila, isebe lesundu nomzi womlambo,
16 Ngaloo mini amaYiputa aya kuba njengabafazi, agubhe, ankwantye phambi kokulingisa ngesandla kukaYehova wemikhosi, alingisa ngaso kuwo.
17 Umhlaba wakwaYuda woyixhalabisa iYiputa; athi othe wawukhankanya kuyo, ankwantye, ngenxa yecebo likaYehova wemikhosi, alicebileyo ngayo.
18 Ngaloo mini imizi emihlanu ezweni lamaYiputa iya kuthetha intetho yelakwaKanan, ifunge uYehova wemikhosi; omnye kuya kuthiwa yi-Ir-heres.
19 Ngaloo mini kuya kubakho isibingelelo kuYehova phakathi kwelizwe lamaYiputa, nelitye elimisiweyo kuYehova ngasemdeni walo.
20 Oko koba ngumqondiso nobungqina kuYehova wemikhosi ezweni lamaYiputa; xa athe akhala kuYehova ngenxa yabaxinezeli bawo, wowathumela umsindisi nomthetheleli, awahlangule.
21 UYehova uya kuzazisa kumaYiputa, amazi uYehova amaYiputa ngaloo mini, amkhonze ngemibingelelo nangeminikelo yokudla; abhambathise ngezibhambathiso kuYehova, azizalise.
22 UYehova uya kuwabetha ke amaYiputa, ebetha ephilisa; abuyele kuYehova, yena athandazeke ngawo, awaphilise.
23 Ngaloo mini kuya kubakho umendo ophuma eYiputa, oya eAsiriya; eze ama-Asiriya eYiputa, amaYiputa aye eAsiriya, akhonze uYehova amaYiputa kunye nama-Asiriya.
24 Ngaloo mini amaSirayeli aya kuba sisahlulo sesithathu kumaYiputa nakuma-Asiriya, eyintsikelelo phakathi kwehlabathi;
25 ewasikelela uYehova wemikhosi, esithi, Nisikelelwe, maYiputa, bantu bam; ma-Asiriya, msebenzi wezandla zam; maSirayeli, lifa lam.
