1 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kuYona okwesibini, lisithi,
2 Suk’ ume, uye eNineve, kuloo mzi mkhulu, umemeze ngawo umemezo endithetha lona kuwe.
3 Wesuka ke uYona, waya eNineve ngokwelizwi likaYehova. Ke kaloku iNineve ibingumzi omkhulu kuThixo, iluhambo lweentsuku ezintathu.
4 UYona waqala wangena kuloo mzi uhambo losuku olunye, wamemeza, wathi, Zisaya kuba ziintsuku ezimashumi mane, iNineve ibhukuqwe.
5 Amadoda aseNineve akholwa kuThixo, amema uzilo, ambatha ezirhwexayo, ethabathela kwabakhulu bawo, esa kwabancinane bawo.
6 Lafika ilizwi elo kukumkani waseNineve; wesuka etroneni yakhe, wayisusa wayibeka phantsi ingubo yakhe ende, wazigubungela ngezirhwexayo, wahlala phantsi eluthuthwini.
7 Wathi, makudandulukwe kutshiwo eNineve ngomthetho wokumkani nezikhulu zakhe, ukuthi: Umntu nempahla enkulu, iinkomo nempahla emfutshane, mazingevi nento; mazingadli, mazingaseli namanzi;
8 maze azigubungele ngezirhwexayo umntu nempahla enkulu, akhale kuThixo ngokunamandla, abuye elowo endleleni yakhe embi, elugonyamelweni olusezandleni zakhe.
9 Ngubani na owaziyo ukuba akangebuyi kanti azohlwaye uThixo, abuye ekuvutheni komsindo wakhe, ukuze singabhubhi?
10 UThixo wazibona izenzo zabo, ukuba babuyile ezindleleni zabo ezimbi; uThixo wazohlwaya ngenxa yobubi, abethe uya kubenza kubo; akabenza.
