1 Kwathi emihleni ka-Amrafeli inkosi yaseShineyari, no-Ariyoki inkosi yase-Elasare, noKedorlawomere inkosi yase-Elamu, noTidali inkosi yezizwe,
2 baphaka impi noBera inkosi yaseSodoma, noBirisha inkosi yaseGomora, noShinabe inkosi yase-Adima, noShemebere inkosi yaseSeboyimi, nenkosi yaseBela eliyiSowari.
3 Bonke laba bahlangana esiGodini saseSidimi esiluLwandle Lukasawoti.
4 Iminyaka eyishumi nambili bamkhonza uKedorlawomere, kepha ngomnyaka weshumi nantathu bahlubuka.
5 Ngomnyaka weshumi nane kweza uKedorlawomere kanye namakhosi anaye, banqoba amaRefa e-Ashiteroti Karinayimi, namaZuzi eHamu, nama-Emi eShave Kiriyatayimi,
6 namaHori entabeni yawo iSeyiri, kwaze kwaba se-Eli Pharanu ngasehlane.
7 Base bebuyela emuva, beza e-Eni Mishipati eliyiKadeshi, bachitha izwe lonke lama-Amaleki nelama-Amori ayehlala eHasasoni Tamari.
8 Yaphuma inkosi yaseSodoma, nenkosi yaseGomora, nenkosi yase-Adima, nenkosi yaseSeboyimi, nenkosi yaseBela eliyiSowari; bahloma, balwa nabo esiGodini saseSidimi.
9 Balwa noKedorlawomere inkosi yase-Elamu, noTidali inkosi yezizwe, no-Amrafeli inkosi yaseShineyari, no-Ariyoki inkosi yase-Elasare; amakhosi amane alwa nayisihlanu.
10 IsiGodi saseSidimi sasigcwele imigodi yebitume; inkosi yaseSodoma neyaseGomora abaleka, awela kuyo; abaseleyo babalekela entabeni.
11 Bathatha yonke impahla yaseSodoma neyaseGomora kanye nakho konke ukudla, bamuka.
12 Bamthatha uLoti indodana yomfowabo ka-Abrama owayehlala eSodoma kanye nempahla yakhe, bamuka.
13 Kepha kweza ophunyukileyo, wamtshela u-Abrama umHeberu, ngokuba wayehlala ngasema-okini kaMamre umAmori, umfowabo ka-Eshikoli nomfowabo ka-Anere; labo babehlangene no-Abrama.
14 Nxa u-Abrama esezwile ukuthi umzalwane wakhe uLoti uthunjiwe, wabutha izinceku zakhe ezifundisiweyo ebezizelwe endlini yakhe, ezingamakhulu amathathu neshumi nesishiyagalombili, wabaxosha kwaze kwaba kwaDani.
15 Wazahlukanisa ebusuku izinceku zakhe, wabahlasela, wabanqoba, wabaxosha, waze wafika eHoba elingasenyakatho kwaseDamaseku.
16 Wabuyisa yonke impahla, wambuyisa noLoti umzalwane wakhe, nempahla yakhe, nabesifazane, nabantu.
17 Emva kokubuya kwakhe ekunqobeni uKedorlawomere namakhosi anaye yaphuma inkosi yaseSodoma, yaya ukumhlangabeza esiGodini saseShave esiyisiGodi seNkosi.
18 UMelkisedeki inkosi yaseSalema waletha isinkwa newayini; wayengumpristi kaNkulunkulu oPhezukonke.
19 Wambusisa wathi: “U-Abrama makabusiswe nguNkulunkulu oPhezuknke, umdali wezulu nomhlaba.
20 Makabongwe uNkulunkulu oPhezukonke onike izitha zakho esandleni sakho.” U-Abrama wamnika okweshumi kwakho konke.
21 Inkosi yaseSodoma yathi ku-Abrama: “Ngiphe abantu, uzithathele impahla.”
22 Kepha u-Abrama wathi enkosini yaseSodoma: “Ngiyaphakamisela isandla sami kuJehova, uNkulunkulu oPhezukonke, umdali wezulu nomhlaba,
23 ngithi angiyikuthatha umucwana nomchilo wezicathulo nokunye okwakho ukuba ungasho ukuthi: ‘Ngimcebisile u-Abrama.’
24 Kuphela lokho ezikudlile izinceku, nesabelo samadoda ayehamba nami; o-Anere, no-Eshikoli, noMamre mabathathe isabelo sabo.”
