1 Wathi uYehova kum, Thabatha icwecwe elikhulu, ubhale kulo ngenkxola yabantu, uthi, NgoMaxhoba ayakhawuleza iinto eziphangiweyo zingxamile,
2 Ndathabathela amangqina anyanisileyo, ooUriya umbingeleli, noZekariya unyana kaYebherekiya.
3 Ndasondela kumprofetikazi, wamitha, wazala unyana. Wathi uYehova kum, Yithi igama lakhe nguMaxhoba ayakhawuleza iinto eziphangiweyo zingxamile.
4 Ngokuba, engekakwazi umntwana lo ukuthi, Bawo, nokuthi, Ma, ubutyebi baseDamasko namaxhoba akwaSamari aya kuthwalelwa phambi kokumkani waseAsiriya.
5 Waqokela uYehova, wabuya wathetha kum, esithi,
6 Ngenxa enokuba abo bantu bewacekisa amanzi aseShilowa, la ahamba kuhle, benze imihlali noRetsin nonyana kaRemaliya:
7 ngako oko, yabona, iNkosi inyusela phezu kwakho amanzi oMlambo, lawo anamandla amakhulu, kwaukumkani waseAsiriya nobunzima bakhe bonke. Wonyuka wona ube ngaphezu kwemisele yawo yonke, uhambe ngaphandle kweendonga zawo zonke,
8 utyhudisele kwelakwaYuda, ukhukule, udlule, ubethe emqaleni; kuthi ukunaba kwamahlelo awo kuzalise ububanzi belizwe lakho, Imanuweli.
9 Bhavumani, zizwe, niqotywe; bekani indlebe, nonke mimandla ikude yehlabathi; bhinqani, niqotywe; bhinqani, niqotywe.
10 Cebani icebo, lotshitsha; thethani ilizwi, aliyi kuma; ngokuba uThixo unathi.
11 Kuba utshilo uYehova kum, eseyisa ngamandla, endithethisa ukuba ndingahambi ngendlela yabo bantu, ukuthi,
12 Ize ningathi, Ikukucetywa into yonke abathi abo bantu, Ikukucetywa; nento eyoyikwa ngabo ningayoyiki, ningangcangcazeliswa yiyo.
13 UYehova wemikhosi, ngcwalisani yena nina, abe nguye enimoyikayo, abe nguye oningcangcazelisayo.
14 Woba yingcwele kuni; ke yena uya kuba lilitye lokubetheka, neliwa lokukhubeka, kuzo zombini izindlu zakwaSirayeli, abe sisibatha nomgibe kubemi baseYerusalem.
15 Abaninzi kubo baya kukhubeka apho, bawe, baphuke, barhintyeleke, babanjiswe.
16 Bopha isingqino, tywina uqinise isiyalo kubafundi bam.
17 Ndiya kulindela kuYehova, lo ubusithelisayo ubuso bakhe kwindlu kaYakobi, ndithembele kuye.
18 Yabona, mna nabantwana andinikileyo uYehova, singabemiqondiso nezimanga kwaSirayeli, ezivela kuYehova wemikhosi, ulohlala entabeni yaseZiyon.
19 Xa bathe kuni, Quqelani kwabaneshologu nakoosiyazi, abalozayo, abadumzelayo, yithini, Abantu mabangaquqeli kuThixo wabo, yini na? Ngenxa yabaphilileyo mabaquqele kwabafileyo na?
20 Bhekani esiyalweni, esingqinweni! Ukuba bathe abathetha ngokwelo lizwi, boba abanasifingo.
21 Baya kucanda kulo ilizwe begogotyelwe, belambile; kuthi ke, xa bathe balamba, babe noburhalarhume, batshabhise ukumkani wabo noThixo wabo, babheke phezulu;
22 babheke emhlabeni, nanko kuyimbandezelo nobumnyama, bethiwe ncithi yingcutheko, begxothelwe esithokothokweni.
