Isahluko 24

1 UYehova wandibonisa, nanzo iingobozi ezimbini zamakhiwane, zibekiwe phambi kwetempile kaYehova; emveni kokuba uNebhukadenetsare ukumkani waseBhabheli ebebathimbile ooYekoniya unyana kaYehoyakim, ukumkani wakwaYuda, nabathetheli bakwaYuda, nengcibi, nabakhandi, ebasusa eYerusalem, ebasa eBhabheli.
2 Enye ingobozi ibinamakhiwane alungileyo kakhulu, enjengamakhiwane aziintlahlela ekuvuthweni; enye ingobozi ibinamakhiwane amabi kunene, angenakudliwa ngobubi bawo.
3 Wathi ke uYehova kum, Ubona ntoni na, Yeremiya? Ndathi, Amakhiwane; amakhiwane alungileyo, elunge kunene; amabi emabi kunene, engenakudliwa ngobubi bawo.
4 Kwafika kum ilizwi likaYehova, lisithi,
5 Utsho uYehova, uThixo kaSirayeli, ukuthi, Njengaloo makhiwane alungileyo, ndiya kwenjenjalo ukubakhangelela okulungileyo abathinjiweyo bakwaYuda endibagxothileyo kule ndawo, baya ezweni lamaKaledi.
6 Ndiya kulimisela okulungileyo iliso lam kubo, ndibabuyisele kweli lizwe, ndibakhe, ndingabagungxuli; ndibatyale, ndingabanyothuli.
7 Ndobanika intliziyo yokundazi, ukuba ndinguYehova, babe ngabantu bam, ndibe nguThixo wabo; ngokuba baya kubuyela kum nentliziyo yabo yonke.
8 Ke, njengamakhiwane amabi angenakudliwa ngobubi, inene, utsho uYehova ukuthi, Ndiya kumenza abe njalo uZedekiya ukumkani wamaYuda, nabathetheli bakhe, namasalela aseYerusalem aseleyo kweli lizwe, nahleliyo ezweni lamaYiputa.
9 Ndiya kubanikela kwizikumkani zonke zehlabathi, ukuba babe yinto yokunqakulisa, babe nobubi, babe sisingcikivo, nomzekeliso, nento yentsini neyokutshabhiswa ezindaweni zonke endibagxothela khona.
10 Ndolithuma phakathi kwabo ikrele, nendlala, nendyikitya yokufa, bade bagqitywe, baphele emhlabeni endawunika bona nooyise.
