Isahluko 3

1 Ngokuba uyabona, iNkosi, uYehova wemikhosi, isusa eYerusalem nakwaYuda isixhaso nenkxaso, sonke isixhaso sesonka kwanesixhaso samanzi:
2 igorha nendoda yokulwa, umgwebi nomprofeti, umvumisi nendoda enkulu,
3 umthetheli wamashumi amahlanu, nobekekileyo, nomphakathi, nesilumko esinobungcibi, nengqondi yokukhwitsa.
4 Ndobanika abathetheli abangabantwana, nabafekethi babalawule;
5 bakhandanisane abantu ulowo nalowo, ulowo nalowa. Baya kusunduzana umntwana nendoda enkulu, ubuvuvu nabazukileyo.
6 Xa umntu aya kuthi abambelele kumzalwana wakhe endlwini kayise, athi, Unengubo wena, masiphathwe nguwe, oku kukhahleleka kube sesandleni sakho:
7 wophimisela ngaloo mini athi, Andingebi mphilisi, endlwini yam kungekho sonka, kungekho ngubo; aninakundenza umphathi wabantu.
8 Ngokuba ikhahlelekile iYerusalem, awile amaYuda; ngokuba iilwimi zabo neentlondi zabo zichase uYehova, ukuba bawaphikise amehlo obuqaqawuli bakhe.
9 Imbonakalo yobuso babo iyangqina ngabo, bayaxixela izono zabo njengeSodom, abakhanyeli. Yeha umphefumlo wabo, ngokuba beziphethe kakubi kwabona!
10 Yithi kumalungisa, kuya kulunga kuwo; ngokuba isiqhamo sezenzo zawo aya kusidla.
11 Yeha ongendawo! Kuya kuba kubi kuye; ngokuba ukuphatha kwezandla zakhe kuya kwenziwa kuye.
12 Abantu bam bakhandaniswa ngabantwana, balawulwa ngabafazi. Bantu bam, abakhokeli benu ngabandwendwisi, bayigqukile indlela yomendo wenu.
13 Usukile wema uYehova ukuba athethe ityala; umi ukuba agwebe ebantwini.
14 UYehova uya kungena ematyaleni namadoda amakhulu abantu bakhe, nabathetheli babo; esithi, Ke nina nisigqibile isidiliya; okuphangwe kusizana kusezindlwini zenu.
15 Ninani na, ukuba nibatyumze nje abantu bam, nibusile ubuso beentsizana? itsho iNkosi, uYehova wemikhosi.
16 Kananjalo uthi ke uYehova, Ngenxa enokuba zizidla iintombi zaseZiyon, zihamba zolule iintamo, zitshawula ngamehlo, zihamba zicothoza ukuhamba kwazo, zisenza isigampe esisezinyaweni zazo:
17 ngako oko iNkosi yolujaduka ukakayi lweentombi zaseZiyon, uYehova azihlube ubunkazana bazo.
18 Ngaloo mini iNkosi yozisusa izihombo zemixokelelwane, nesangqawe, nentsimbi yomqala,
19 namajikazi, neewatsha, nezigqubuthelo,
20 neembasa, neenxaxhazo, neenqwemesha, namahlala okujoja, namakhubalo,
21 nemisesane, namakhonkco empumlo,
22 nezambatho ezinqabileyo, neengubo zokwaleka ezingaphezulu, neetyali, neengxowa zemali,
23 nezipili, neeqhiya zelinen entle, neenkontsho, neengubo zokwaleka ezikrelekrele.
24 Kothi esikhundleni sobulawu ibe kukuvunda, esikhundleni sombhinqo ibe yintambo; esikhundleni seempothe ibe yimpempethe, esikhundleni sengubo engwabungwabu ibe sisikhaka esirhwexayo; ibe ngumtshiso esikhundleni sobunzwakazi.
25 Amadoda akho aya kuwa likrele, namagorha akho yimfazwe;
26 ancwine enze isijwili amasango ayo, ithi yona ikhutshululwe, ihlale phantsi emhlabeni.
