Isahluko 4

1 Liveni ilizwi likaYehova, nyana bakaSirayeli; ngokuba uYehova ubambene nabemi belizwe eli; ngokuba kungekho nyaniso, kungekho nceba, kungekho kwazi uThixo kweli lizwe.
2 Kukushwabula, nokuxoka, nokuncinitha, nokuba, nokukrexeza; bagqobhozile, igazi liphathelele kwigazi.
3 Ngenxa yoko ilizwe lenza isijwili, zithokombisile zonke izinto ezimi kulo; izinto eziphilileyo zasendle, neentaka zezulu, kwaneentlanzi zolwandle, ziyasuswa.
4 Kodwa makangabambani omnye nomnye, omnye makangamohlwayi omnye; abantu bakowenu banjengobambene nombingeleli.
5 Wokhubeka emini, umprofeti enawe akhubeke ebusuku, ndimtshabalalise unyoko.
6 Bayatshabalala abantu bam kukuswela ukwazi; kuba wena ukucekisile ukwazi, ndiya kukucekisa, ukuba ungabi ngumbingeleli kum. Wawulibala umyalelo kaThixo wakho; ndobalibala abantwana bakho nam.
7 Okukhona bandileyo, kokukhona bonileyo kum; uzuko lwabo ndiya kulwananisa ngocukucezo.
8 Badla idini lesono labantu bam; umphefumlo wabo bawuphakamisela ebugwenxeni babo.
9 Kuya kuthi, njengoko banjalo abantu, abe njalo umbingeleli; ndizivelele iindlela zakhe kuye, ndizibuyisele kuye iintlondi zakhe.
10 Bodla bangahluthi; bahenyuze bangandi; ngokuba bekuyekile ukumphulaphula uYehova.
11 Uhenyuzo, newayini, newayini entsha, ziwexula intliziyo.
12 Abantu bam babuzisa kumthi wabo; nentonga yabo iyabaxelela; ngokuba umoya wobuhenyu ubalahlekisile; bahenyuze bemka phantsi koThixo wabo.
13 Babingelela ezincotsheni zeentaba, baqhumisele ezindulini phantsi kwemioki nemipopulari nemiterebhinti, kuba ulungile umthunzi wayo; ngenxa yoko ziyahenyuza iintombi zenu, bayakrexeza oomolokazana benu.
14 Andiyi kuzivelela iintombi zenu, ngokokuba zihenyuza; noomolokazana benu, ngokokuba bekrexeza. Ngokuba nina ngokwenu nithi gu bucala namahenyukazi nibingelela namang’awukazi; ngoko ke abantu abangaqondiyo baya kukhahleleka phantsi.
15 Ukuba uyahenyuza, Sirayeli, makangazeki ityala uYuda; musani ukuya eGiligali, ningenyuki niye eBhetaven, ningafungi nithi, Ehleli nje uYehova.
16 Kuba uSirayeli uyinjubaqa, njengethokazi eliyinjubaqa; ngoku uYehova uya kubalusela emphangalaleni, njengamatakane.
17 UEfrayim ubophene nezithixo; myekeni.
18 Igabadele imithayi yabo; bahenyuza behenyuzile; ziluthande nzulu ucukucezo iingweletshetshe zabo.
19 Umoya umbambile ngamaphiko awo; baya kudana yimibingelelo yabo.
