Isahluko 28

1 Yaha ke, isithsaba sekratshi samanxila akwaEfrayim, nentyantyambo ebunayo yamakhazikhazi esihombo sakhe, esemantloko omfula ochumayo wababuleweyo yiwayini!
2 Yabona, iNkosi inento eyomeleleyo, ekhaliphileyo, njengesiphango sesichotho, isaqhwithi esibhubhisayo; njengesiphango esimanzi anamandla akhukulayo, iya kunqumela emhlabeni ngesandla.
3 Siya kunyashwa ngeenyawo isithsaba sekratshi samanxila akwaEfrayim.
4 Intyantyambo ebunayo yamakhazikhazi esihombo sakhe, esemantloko omfula ochumayo, yoba njengekhiwane elilikhikhizela, kungekabi sehlotyeni; athi olibonileyo alibone, aliginye esaliphethe ngesandla.
5 Ngaloo mini uYehova wemikhosi uya kuba sisithsaba esimakhazikhazi, nesangqawe sokuhomba kumasalela abantu bakhe;
6 abe ngumoya wesiko kwabahleli esihlalweni sokugweba, nobugorha kwababuyisela imfazwe esangweni.
7 Kwanaba ke bayotywe yiwayini, bayahexa sisiselo esinxilisayo; umbingeleli nomprofeti bayotywe sisiselo esinxilisayo, baginywe yiwayini, bayahexa sisiselo esinxilisayo; bayotyiwe bebona imibono, bayagexa begweba ityala.
8 Kuba zonke izithebe zizele ngumhlanzo oyintshontsho; akukho ndawo ingenawo.
9 Bathi, Uya kuyala bani na ukuba azi? aqondise bani na udaba? Abalunyulweyo emasini? abancothulweyo ebeleni?
10 Kuba umthetho uza phezu komthetho, umthetho phezu komthetho; ummiselo phezu kommiselo, ummiselo phezu kommiselo; intwana apha, intwana phaya.
11 Inene, uya kuthetha ngentetho ethintithayo nangalulwimi lumbi kwaba bantu;
12 watshoyo kubo ukuthi, Nantsi indawo yokuphumla, phumzani abatyhafileyo; nantsi indawo yokunyhamnyheka; basuka abavuma ukuva.
13 Ngoko ke ilizwi likaYehova loba ngumthetho phezu komthetho kubo, umthetho phezu komthetho; ngummiselo phezu kommiselo, ummiselo phezu kommiselo; intwana apha, intwana phaya: ukuze baye bakhubeke, bawe ngomva, baphuke, barhintyelwe, babanjiswe.
14 Ngako oko liveni ilizwi likaYehova, madoda agxekayo, balawuli baba bantu baseYerusalem.
15 Ngokuba nisithi, Sinqophisene nokufa, sivumelene nelabafileyo; isibetho esingumkhukula, xa singenelayo, asiyi kufika kuthi, kuba amanga siwenze ihlathi lethu, sasithela ngobuxoki.
16 Ngako oko itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Yabona, ndiseke eZiyon ilitye, ilitye locikido, ilitye elinqabileyo lembombo, loseko olusekiweyo. Okholiweyo akayi kungxama.
17 Isiko ndolenza intambo yokulinganisa, ubulungisa ndibenze ilothe yokulungelelanisa; isichotho siya kumka nalo ihlathi lamanga, amanzi ayikhukulise indawo yokusithela.
18 Kuya kucinywa ukunqophisana kwenu nokufa, kungemi ukuvumelana kwenu nelabafileyo; isibetho esingumkhukula, xa singenelayo, sonenza nibe yinto egqushiweyo.
19 Oku kungenela singenelayo, siya kunisusa; ngokuba imiso ngemiso siya kuningenela, imini nobusuku; kuthi ukuqonda udaba kube kukuhlasimla kodwa.
20 Inene, umandlalo mfutshane, akukho kunaba; nesigubungelo sincinane, ukuba azisongele kuso.
21 Ngokuba uya kusuk’ eme uYehova, njengasentabeni yePeratsim; uya kuguguma, njengasentilini yeGibheyon; ukuba enze isenzo sakhe, isenzo sakhe esisodwa, ukuba asebenze umsebenzi wakhe, umsebenzi wakhe ongaqhelekileyo.
22 Kaloku ke musani ukugxeka, hleze kuqiniselwe ukubotshelelwa kwenu; ngokokuba isiphelo esiya kulifikela ilizwe lonke sisesimisiweyo ke sagqitywa; ndisivile eNkosini, uYehova wemikhosi.
23 Libekeleni indlebe nilive ilizwi lam; yibazeleni indlebe niyive intetho yam.
24 Umlimi ulima iimini ezi zonke na, ukuba ahlwayele? anqike aqwakanise umhlaba wakhe na?
25 Akathi na, akuba ebulungelelanisile ubuso bawo, asasaze idile, agcwayele ikumin, akrozise ingqolowa, nerhasi endaweni ephawuliweyo, nespelete ngasemdeni wayo?
26 Umqeqeshile ngokwesiko uThixo wakhe, wamyala.
27 Kuba idile ayisizilwa ngempahla yokusizila, ayiqengqelwa ngevili yenqwelo ikumin; itsinwa ngoswazi idile, nekumin ngentonga.
28 Ingqolowa ikhe ityunyuzwe na? Hayi, akahlali eyisizila, agoqozise ivili yenqwelo yakhe namahashe akhe phezu kwayo; akayityumzi.
29 Nale nto iphuma kuYehova wemikhosi; omacebo angummangaliso, obulumko butshatsheleyo.
