Isahluko 8

1 Beka isigodle emlonyeni wakho. Utshaba luyirhiwula indlu kaYehova njengexhalanga; ngenxa yokuba bewugqithile umnqophiso wam, bakreqa kumyalelo wam.
2 Baya kukhala kum, bathi, Thixo wethu, siyakwazi, thina Sirayeli.
3 Iyanuka kuSirayeli into elungileyo; utshaba malumsukele.
4 Bamise ookumkani, bengaveli kum; benze abathetheli, ndingazi mna; isilivere yabo negolide yabo bayenze izithixo, ukuze inqanyulwe.
5 Ithole lakho liyanuka, Samari: umsindo wam uyavutha kubo; kunini na bengakwazi ukuziphatha msulwa?
6 Ngokuba nalo elo liphuma kwaSirayeli; lenziwe yingcibi, aliThixo lona; ke liya kucoleka ithole lakwaSamari.
7 Ngokuba behlwayele umoya, baya kuvuna isaqhwithi. Akukho zimba kuwo; isithombo asenzi sikhwebu; nokuba besithe saba naso, besiya kudliwa ngabasemzini.
8 Uginyiwe uSirayeli; ngoku basezintlangeni njengempahla engananziweyo.
9 Kuba bona banyuke baya eAsiriya, njenge-esile lasendle lihamba lilodwa, lahlukile; ke yena uEfrayim uziqeshile izitharudane.
10 Nakuba beqesha nokuqesha ezintlangeni, ndiya kubabutha ngoku, baqale banciphe ngenxa yomthwalo wokumkani wabathetheli.
11 Kuba uEfrayim uzandisile izibingelelo zokona; kuye izibingelelo zaba zezokona.
12 Ndimbhalela into eninzi yemiyalelo yam; bayicingela into engento.
13 Imibingelelo yezipho zam bayayibingelela, bayidla ngokwenyama; ke ayakholeka kuYehova; ngokunje uya kubukhumbula ubugwenxa babo, azivelele izono zabo; baya kubuyela bona eYiputa.
14 Kuba uSirayeli wamlibala uMenzi wakhe, wakha amabhotwe; uYuda wayandisa imizi enqatyisiweyo. Ke mna ndiya kuthumela umlilo emizini yakhe, uzidle iingxande zakhe ezinde.
