Isahluko 8

1 Ke kaloku kwathi ngomnyaka wesithandathu, ngenyanga yesithandathu, ngolwesihlanu enyangeni leyo, ndihleli endlwini yam, namadoda amakhulu akwaYuda ehleli phambi kwam, sawa phezu kwam khona isandla seNkosi uYehova.
2 Ndabona, nantso into efana nendoda ukubonakala kwayo; kuthabathele esinqeni sayo kwehlisa, kubonakala ingumlilo; kuthabathele esinqeni sayo kunyuse, ngathi kukubonakala kokukhazimla, ngathi yimbonakalo yegolide evuthiweyo.
3 Wolula into emilise okwesandla, wandibamba ngesihlwitha sentloko yam; umoya wandifunqula ndaba phakathi komhlaba nezulu. Wandisa eYerusalem ngemibono kaThixo, ekungeneni kwesango lentendelezo ephakathi, elibheke ngasentla, apho bekuhleli khona umfanekiso wobukhwele okhweletisayo.
4 Nabo ke bukhona ubuqaqawuli bukaThixo kaSirayeli, bunjengombono endawubonayo entilini leyo.
5 Wathi kum, Nyana womntu, khawuphakamise amehlo akho, ukhangele ngasentla. Ndawaphakamisa ke amehlo am, ndakhangela ngasentla: nanko ngasentla kwesango lesibingelelo kukho loo mfanekiso wobukhwele usekungeneni kwalo.
6 Wathi kum, Nyana womntu, uyakubona na abakwenzayo? Ngamasikizi amakhulu la, iwenzayo apha indlu kaSirayeli, ukuze ndikhwelele kude nengcwele yam; usaya kubuya ubone amasikizi amakhulu kunala.
7 Wandisa ke ekungeneni kwentendelezo; ndabona, nango umngxuma eludongeni.
8 Wathi kum, Nyana womntu, khawugqobhoze eludongeni. Ndagqobhoza ke eludongeni, nanko kukho umnyango.
9 Wathi kum, Yiza, ubone amasikizi amabi abawenzayo apha.
10 Ndangena, ndabona: nanzo zonke izinto ezimilise okwesinambuzane nenkomo, izinto ezinezothe, nezigodo zonke zendlu kaSirayeli, zikroliwe eludongeni ngeenxa zonke.
11 Kumi phambi kwazo amadoda angamashumi asixhenxe kumadoda amakhulu endlu kaSirayeli, noYazaniya unyana kaShafan emi phakathi kwawo, iyileyo iphethe ngesandla isiqhumiselo, kunyuka ivumba lelifu lokuqhumisela.
12 Wathi kum, Nyana womntu, ukubonile na akwenzayo emnyameni amadoda amakhulu endlu kaSirayeli, iyileyo ezingontsini zayo ezinemifanekiso? ngokuba esithi, uYehova akasiboni, uYehova ulilahlile ilizwe.
13 Wathi kum, Usaya kubuya ubone amasikizi awenzayo amakhulu kunala.
14 Wandisa ekungeneni kwesango lendlu kaYehova elingasentla; nanko kuhleli abafazi apho, belilela uTamuzi.
15 Wathi kum, Ubonile na, nyana womntu? Usaya kubuya ubone amasikizi awenzayo amakhulu kunala.
16 Wandisa entendelezweni ephakathi yendlu kaYehova: nanko, ekungeneni etempileni kaYehova, phakathi kwevaranda nesibingelelo, kukho amadoda angathi angamashumi amabini anamahlanu, eyinikele umva itempile kaYehova, ubuso bawo bubheke empumalanga; aqubuda kwilanga, ebheke empumalanga.
17 Wathi kum, Ubonile na, nyana womntu? Kuncinane na kwindlu kaYuda ukuwenza la masikizi bawenzayo apha, ukuba ke balizalise ilizwe nangogonyamelo, babuye bandiqumbise? Nabo, besisa isebe lomdiliya emathatheni abo.
18 Nam ndiya kwenza ngobushushu; aliyi kuba nanceba iliso lam, ndibaconge; nokuba badanduluke ezindlebeni zam ngezwi elikhulu, andiyi kubeva.
