Isahluko 57

1 Ilungisa liyatshabalala; akukho mntu ke ukunyamekelayo oko ngentliziyo; amadoda anobubele ayemka, akukho mntu ke uqondayo ukuba ilungisa limka phambi kokuba kubekho ububi.
2 Lingena eluxolweni; baphumla ezililini zabo ababehambe ngokuthe gca.
3 Ke nina, sondelani apha, nyana betolakazi, mbewu yomkrexezi neyehenyukazi.
4 Nivuyelela bani na? Nisinekela bani na, ning’ong’oza nje? Aningabantwana bokreqo, imbewu yobuxoki, yini na,
5 nina bazitshisekisayo emiterebhintini, phantsi kwemithi yonke eluhlaza; nina babasikayo abantwana ezihlanjeni phantsi kwemiqhokro yeengxondorha?
6 Isahlulo sakho saba sematyeni agudileyo esihlambo; wona aba ngamaqashiso akho; kananjalo wawathululela amadini athululwayo, wenyusa iminikelo yokudla kuwo. Mandizithuthuzele na ngezo zinto?
7 Entabeni ephakamileyo ende wabeka isilili sakho, wenyuka waya kubingelela imibingelelo nalapho.
8 Isikhumbuzo sakho wasibeka emva kocango nomgubasi; ngokuba wathi ungekum wazityhila, wenyuka, wasenza sabanzi isilili sakho, wanqophisana nabo, wathanda kulala nabo, wandlala ukhuko.
9 Wahambela kukumkani uneoli, wanyhikiza iziqholo zakho, wazithuma kude izigidimi zakho, wazithoba kwada kwaba kwelabafileyo.
10 Wadinwa ngokuba nde kwendlela yakho; akwathi, Ndincamile; wawafumana ebuya ephila amandla akho ngenxa yoko akuthanga fehlefehle.
11 Ubunesithukuthezi ngabani na, ubusoyika bani na, ukuba uthethe amanga, ungandikhumbuli, ungakunyamekeli oko ngentliziyo? Andithe quthu na kususela kwaphakade, ungandoyiki nje?
12 Ndiya kubuxela mna ubulungisa bakho, nezenzo zakho aziyi kukunceda nto.
13 Ekukhaleni kwakho mazikuhlangule iimfumba zezithixo zakho; zonke ziphela zimka nomoya, zithatyathwa ngumphunga. Ke yena okholosa ngam uya kulidla ilifa ilizwe, ayime intaba yam engcwele.
14 Uthile wothi, Fumbani, fumbani, gecani indlela; susani isikhubekiso endleleni yabantu bam.
15 Ngokuba utsho ophezulu, owongamileyo, ohleli ngonaphakade, ogama linguNgcwele, ukuthi, Ndihleli phezulu, engcweleni, ndihleli nakotyumkileyo, omoya uthobekileyo; ukuba ndibuye ndiphilise umoya wabathobekileyo, ndibuye ndiphilise intliziyo yabatyumkileyo.
16 Ngokuba andiyi kubambana naye ngonaphakade, andiyi kuhlala ndinoburhalarhume; kuba umoya ubungatyhafayo phambi kwam, nemiphefumlo endiyenzileyo mna.
17 Ngenxa yobugwenxa bokubawa kwakhe ndaba noburhalarhume, ndambetha, ndazisithelisa, ndaba noburhalarhume; wahamba ephamba ngendlela yentliziyo yakhe.
18 Iindlela zakhe ndizibonile: ndiya kumphilisa, ndimalathise, ndimbuyekezele intuthuzalo yena, nabakhe ke abenza isijwili.
19 Umdali weziqhamo zomlomo, uYehova, uthi, Uxolo, uxolo malubekho kwabakude nakwabakufuphi, ndibaphilise.
20 Ke bona abangendawo banjengolwandle oluvunjululweyo, ngokuba alunakuzola; amanzi alo avumbulula udaka nezibi.
21 Alukho uxolo kwabangendawo, utsho uThixo wam.
