Isahluko 26

1 Kwaba khona indlala ezweni ngaphandle kwendlala yokuqala eyayikhona emihleni ka-Abrahama; u-Isaka waya eGerari ku-Abimeleki inkosi yamaFilisti.
2 UJehova wabonakala kuye, wathi: “Ungehleli eGibithe; hlala ezweni engizakukutshela lona,
3 ugogobale kuleli zwe; ngizakuba nawe, ngikubusise, ngokuba ngiyakunika wena nenzalo yakho onke lawa mazwe, ngigcwalise isifungo engasifunga ku-Abrahama uyihlo.
4 Ngiyakwandisa inzalo yakho, ibe ngangezinkanyezi zezulu, ngiyiphe inzalo yakho onke lawa mazwe; ngenzalo yakho ziyakubusiswa izizwe zonke zomhlaba,
5 ngokuba u-Abrahama walalela izwi lami, wagcina ukusho kwami, nemiyalo yami, nezimiso zami, nemithetho yami.”
6 U-Isaka wahlala-ke eGarari.
7 Amadoda aleyo ndawo ambuza ngomkakhe; wathi: “Ungudadewethu,” ngokuba wesaba ukusho ukuthi: “Ungumkami,” ethi: “Funa amadoda aleyo ndawo angibulale ngenxa kaRebeka, lokhu ebukeka kahle.”
8 Kwathi esehlale khona isikhathi eside, u-Abimeleki inkosi yamaFilisti walunguza efasiteleni, wabona; bheka, u-Isaka wayetekula noRebeka umkakhe.
9 U-Abimeleki wambiza u-Isaka, wathi: “Bheka, impela yena ungumkakho; usholoni ukuthi: ‘Ungudadewethu,’ na?” U-Isaka wathi: “Ngokuba ngathi: Funa ngife ngenxa yakhe.”
10 U-Abimeleki wayesethi: “Kuyini okwenzile kithina na? Bekulula ukuba kufike omunye wabantu, alale nomkakho; ubususibangele icala.”
11 U-Abimeleki wayala bonke abantu, wathi: “Othinta lo muntu nomkakhe uzakubulawa nokubulawa.”
12 U-Isaka watshala kulelo zwe, wathola ngawona lowo mnyaka okuphindwe kayikhulu, ngokuba uJehova wambusisa.
13 Lowo muntu waba mkhulu; kwayilokhu eqhubeka ukukhula njalo, waze waba mkhulu kakhulu.
14 Wayenemfuyo yezimvu, nemfuyo yezinkomo, nezinceku eziningi; amaFilisti ayenomhawu ngaye.
15 Yonke imithombo ezaziyimbile izinceku zikayise ezinsukwini zika-Abrahama uyise, amaFilisti ayeyivalile, ayigcwalisa ngomhlabathi.
16 U-Abimeleki wathi ku-Isaka: “Suka kithina, ngokuba unamandla kakhulu kunathi.”
17 U-Isaka wayesesuka khona, wakha esigodini saseGerari, wahlala lapho.
18 U-Isaka wabuye wemba imithombo yamanzi ababeyimbile ezinsukwini zika-Abrahama uyise, ngokuba amaFilisti ayeyivalile emva kokufa kuka-Abrahama; wayibiza ngamagama ayiqamba ngawo uyise.
19 Izinceku zika-Isaka zemba esigodini, zafumana umthombo wamanzi aphethuzayo.
20 Abelusi baseGerari baphikisana nabelusi baka-Isaka, bathi: “Amanzi angawethu.” Wabiza igama lomthombo ngokuthi i-Eseke, ngokuba baphikisana naye.
21 Bemba omunye umthombo, baphikisana nangawo. Waqamba igama lawo ngokuthi iSitina.
22 Wasuka lapho, wemba omunye umthombo; abaphikisananga ngawo; wabiza igama lawo ngokuthi iRehoboti, wathi: “Ngokuba uJehova usenzele indawo; siyakwanda ezweni.”
23 Wasuka lapho, wakhuphuka waya eBeri Sheba.
24 UJehova wabonakala kuye ngabona lobo busuku, wathi: “NginguNkulunkulu kayihlo u-Abrahama; ungesabi, ngokuba nginawe; ngizakukubusisa, ngiyandise inzalo yakho ngenxa yenceku yami u-Abrahama.”
25 Wakha khona i-altare, wakhuleka egameni likaJehova, wamisa lapho itende lakhe; izinceku zika-Isaka zemba umthombo khona.
26 U-Abimeleki wayeseya kuye evela eGerari, eno-Ahuzati umngane wakhe noPikoli induna yempi yakhe.
27 U-Isaka wathi kubo: “Nizeleni kimi, lokhu niyangizonda, ningixoshile kini, na?”
28 Bathi: “Sesibone nokubona ukuthi uJehova unawe. Sathi: ‘Akube khona manje phakathi kwethu isifungo,’ phakathi kwethu nawe, senze isivumelwano nawe
29 sokuthi awuyikusenzela okubi, njengokuba singakuthintanga, sikwenzele okuhle kodwa, sakumukisa ngokuthula; wena usubusiswe nguJehova.”
30 Wabenzela idili, badla, baphuza.
31 Bavuka ekuseni, bafungisana omunye nomunye; u-Isaka wayesebamukisa, basuka kuye ngokuthula.
32 Kwathi ngalolo suku zafika izinceku zika-Isaka, zamtshela ngomthombo ezaziwumbile, zathi kuye: “Sitholile amanzi.”
33 Wayesewubiza ngokuthi iSheba; ngalokho igama lomuzi lithi iBeri Sheba kuze kube namuhla.
34 Kwathi u-Esawu eseneminyaka engamashumi amane, wathatha umfazi uJuditi indodakazi kaBeri umHeti noBasemati indodakazi ka-Eloni umHeti.
35 Baba lusizi enhliziyweni ka-Isaka noRebeka.
