Isahluko 11

1 Ilizwi elafikayo kuYeremiya, livela kuYehova, lisithi,
2 Waveni amazwi alo mnqophiso, nithethe kumadoda akwaYuda, nakubemi baseYerusalem;
3 uthi kubo, Utsho uYehova, uThixo kaSirayeli, ukuthi, Mayiqalekiswe indoda engawevayo amazwi alo mnqophiso,
4 ndabawisela umthetho ngawo ooyihlo, mhla ndabakhuphayo ezweni laseYiputa, ezikweni lesinyithi; ndathi, Liphulaphuleni ilizwi lam, nenze ngako konke endiniwisela umthetho ngako: noba ngabantu bam, mna ndibe nguThixo wenu;
5 ukuze ndisimise isifungo endasifungela ooyihlo, ukuba ndibanike ilizwe elibaleka amasi nobusi, njengoko kunjalo namhla. Ndaphendula mna, ndathi, Amen, Yehova.
6 Wathi uYehova kum, Wamemeze la mazwi onke emizini yakwaYuda, nasezitratweni zaseYerusalem, uthi, Yivani amazwi alo mnqophiso, niwenze.
7 Ngokuba ndaqononondisa ndiqononondisa koyihlo, mhla ndabakhuphayo ezweni laseYiputa unanamhla, ndiqononondisa kwakusasa, ndisithi, Liphulaphuleni ilizwi lam.
8 Ke abevanga, abayithobanga indlebe yabo; bahamba elowo ngobungqola bentliziyo yakhe enobubi. Ndesuka ke ndazisa phezu kwabo onke amazwi alo mnqophiso, ndabawisela umthetho ngawo, ukuba bawenze; abawenza.
9 UYehova wathi kum, Kufunyenwe iyelenqe phakathi kwamadoda akwaYuda, naphakathi kwabemi baseYerusalem.
10 Babuyele kuzo izenzo ezigwenxa zooyise bamandulo, ababengavumi ukuweva amazwi am; abasuka bona balandela thixo bambi ukuze babakhonze; indlu kaSirayeli nendlu kaYuda zawaphula umnqophiso wam endawenza nooyise.
11 Ngako oko utsho uYehova ukuthi, Yabona, ndibazisela ububi abangayi kuba nako ukuphuma kubo; bakhale kum, ndingabaphulaphuli.
12 Iya kuhamba ke imizi yakwaYuda nabemi baseYerusalem, bakhale koothixo abaqhumisela kubo, bangabasindisi nokubasindisa ngexesha lobubi babo.
13 Ngokuba ngangenani lemizi yakho, baba ngako oothixo bakaYuda; ngangenani lezitrato zaseYerusalem, zaba ngako izibingelelo enazimisela into elisikizi, izibingelelo zokuqhumisela kuBhahali.
14 Wena ke musa ukubathandazela aba bantu, ungaphimiseli kuhlahlamba nakuthandaza ngenxa yabo; ngokuba andiyi kuva ngexesha lokukhala kwabo kum, ngenxa yobubi babo.
15 Ifuna ntoni intanda yam endlwini yam, isenza amayelenqe nje? Izibhambathiso nenyama engcwele zobususa na ububi bakho kuwe? Ubungandula udlamke.
16 UYehova wakubiza ngegama lokuba ungumnquma oluhlaza, oyimpuluswa, osiqhamo sihle; wafaka isikhuni kuwo, kukho isandi sengxabatshitshi enkulu, aviveka amasebe awo.
17 Ke uYehova wemikhosi, owakutyalayo, uthethe okubi ngawe, ngenxa yezinto ezimbi zendlu kaSirayeli nezendlu kaYuda, abazenzeleyo ukuze bandiqumbise ngokuqhumisela uBhahali.
18 Ke kaloku uYehova wandazisa, ndazi; waza wandibonisa oko iintlondi zabo.
19 Ndaba njengemana embuna esiwa ekuxhelweni; bendingazi ukuba bacebe icebo ngam, besithi, Masiwonakalise umthi kunye neziqhamo zawo, masimnqumle ezweni labaphilileyo, lingabi sakhunjulwa igama lakhe.
20 Yehova wemikhosi, ugwebayo ngobulungisa, uzicikidayo izintso nentliziyo, mandiyibone impindezelo yakho kubo; ugokuba ndiyityhilile kuwe imbambano yam nabo.
21 Ngako oko, utsho uYehova ngamadoda aseAnatoni, awungxameleyo umphefumlo wakho, esithi, Uze ungaprofeti egameni likaYehova, ukuze ungafi ngezandla zethu;
22 ngako oko, utsho uYehova wemikhosi ukuthi, Yabona, ndiya kuwavelela; amadodana aya kufa likrele, oonyana babo neentombi zabo ziya kufa yindlala.
23 Akuyi kubakho masalela kubo, ngokuba ndiwazisela ububi amadoda aseAnatoti, umnyaka wokuvelelwa kwawo.
