Isahluko 19

1 Izingelosi zombili zafika eSodoma sekuhlwile; uLoti wayehlezi esangweni laseSodoma; uLoti ezibona wasukuma wazihlangabeza; wakhothamela emhlabathini ngobuso,
2 wathi: “Bhekani, makhosi, ake niphambuke, ningene endlini yenceku yenu, nihlale ubusuku, nigeze izinyawo zenu andukuba nivuke ekuseni kusasa, nihambe indlela yenu.” Zathi: “Qha, siyakuhlala phandle.”
3 Kepha wazincenga kakhulu, zaze zaphambukela kuye, zangena endlini yakhe; wazilungisela idili, wenza isinkwa esingenamvubelo, zadla.
4 Zingakalali, amadoda omuzi, amadoda aseSodoma, azungeza indlu, amasha namadala, abantu bonke bephelele.
5 Bambiza uLoti, bathi kuye: “Aphi lawa madoda angenise kuwe ebusuku na? Sikhiphele wona ukuba siwazi.”
6 ULoti waphumela kubo ngasemnyango, wavala umnyango emva kwakhe.
7 Wathi: “Bafowethu, ningoni.
8 Bhekani, nginamadodakazi amabili angayazi ndoda; ake nginiphumisele wona, nenze kuwo njengokufanele emehlweni enu; kepha kulawa madoda ningenzi lutho, ngokuba angene emthunzini wophahla lwami.”
9 Bathi: “Suka lapha!” Bathi futhi: “Lo muntu oyedwa wafika ukuba agogobale; usefuna ukwahlulela; manje siyakukuhlupha wena kunabo.” Bamcindezela kakhulu lo muntu uLoti, basondela ukuba bafohloze umnyango.
10 Khona amadoda azelula izandla, ambuyisela uLoti endlini, avala umnyango.
11 Amadoda ayephandle kwendlu awashaya ngobumpumputhe, amancane namakhulu, aze akhathala ukufuna umnyango.
12 Ayesethi amadoda kuLoti: “Unobani futhi lapha na? Umkhwenyana, namadodana akho, namadodakazi akho, nabo bonke onabo emzini baphumise kule ndawo,
13 ngokuba siyakuyichitha le ndawo, lokhu isikhalo sabo sesisikhulu ebusweni bukaJehova; uJehova usithumile ukuba siyichithe.”
14 Wayesephuma uLoti, wakhuluma nabakhwenyana bakhe ababeyakuthatha amadodakazi akhe, wathi: “Sukani niphume kule ndawo, ngokuba uJehova uyakuchitha umuzi.” Kepha wayenjengontelayo emehlweni abakhwenyana bakhe.
15 Kusantwela izingelosi zamsheshisa uLoti, zathi: “Vuka uthathe umkakho, namadodakazi akho omabili onawo, funa ubhujiswe ngenxa yobubi bomuzi.”
16 Esalibala, amadoda abamba isandla sakhe, nesandla somkakhe, nesandla samadodakazi akhe omabili, uJehova enomusa kuye; amphumisa, ambeka ngaphandle komuzi.
17 Kwathi esebaphumisile ngaphandle, wathi: “Baleka, usinde; ungabheki emva kwakho, ungemi ndawo ethafeni lonke; balekela entabeni, funa ubhujiswe.”
18 Kepha uLoti wathi kuwo: “Nkosi, makungabi njalo.
19 Bheka, inceku yakho ifumene umusa emehlweni akho, ungenzele ububele obukhulu ngokusindisa ukuphila kwami; kepha mina angikwazi ukubalekela entabeni, funa ububi bungifice, ngife.
20 Bheka-ke, lowo muzi useduze ukuba ngibalekele kuwo, futhi mncane; ake ngibalekele khona angithi mncane ukuba umphefumulo wami uphile.”
21 Wathi kuye: “Bheka, nakule nto ngiyakukuvumela; angiyikuwuchitha lo muzi okhuluma ngawo.
22 Kepha shesha ubalekele khona, ngokuba ngingenze lutho, ungakafiki khona.” Ngalokho umuzi wabizwa ngokuthi iSowari.
23 Ilanga laphumela emhlabeni, uLoti esangena eSowari.
24 Khona uJehova wanisa phezu kweSodoma naphezu kweGomora isibabule nomlilo, kuvela kuJehova ezulwini.
25 Wachitha leyo mizi nethafa lonke, nabo bonke abakhe emizini, nalokho okuhlumayo emhlabathini.
26 Kepha umkakhe wabheka emva kwakhe, waba yinsika kasawoti.
27 U-Abrahama wavuka ekuseni, waya endaweni lapho akade emi khona ebusweni bukaJehova.
28 Wabheka ngaseSodoma naseGomora nasezweni lonke lethafa, wabona, bheka, isisi sezwe senyuka njengomusi weziko.
29 Kwathi lapho uNkulunkulu ebhubhisa imizi yasethafeni, uNkulunkulu wakhumbula u-Abrahama, waphumisa uLoti ekuchithekeni mhla ebhubhisa imizi ayehlezi kuyo uLoti.
30 ULoti wakhuphuka eSowari, waya wahlala entabeni kanye namadodakazi akhe omabili, ngokuba wesaba ukuhlala eSowari; wahlala emhumeni namadodakazi akhe amabili.
31 Enkulu yayisithi kwencane: “Ubaba usemdala; akukho ndoda ezweni engangena kithi njengokwenza komhlaba wonke.
32 Woza simphuzise ubaba iwayini, silale naye ukuba sizizuzele inzalo kubaba.”
33 Ngalobo busuku ayesemphuzisa uyise iwayini; enkulu yangena yalala noyise, engazi ukulala kwayo nokuvuka kwayo.
34 Kwathi ngangomuso enkulu yathi kwencane: “Bheka, bengilele nobaba izolo; asimphuzise iwayini nangalobu busuku, ungene wena, ulale naye ukuba sizizuzele inzalo kubaba.”
35 Ayesemphuzisa uyise iwayini nangalobo busuku; encane yasuka yalala naye, engazi ukulala kwayo nokuvuka kwayo.
36 Kanjalo amadodakazi kaLoti omabili akhuleliswa nguyise.
37 Enkulu yazala indodana, yaqamba igama layo ngokuthi uMowabi; lowo unguyise wabakwaMowabi kuze kube namuhla.
38 Encane yazala indodana nayo, yaqamba igama layo ngokuthi uBenami; lowo unguyise wabantwana bakwa-Amoni kuze kube namuhla.
