Isahluko 40

1 Kwathi emva kwalezo zinto umphathizitsha wenkosi yaseGibithe nomphekizinkwa wayo bona enkosini yabo, inkosi yaseGibithe.
2 UFaro wazithukuthelela lezo zinceku zakhe zombili, induna yabaphathizitsha nenduna yabaphekizinkwa.
3 Wazibeka ukuba zilindwe endlini yenduna yemilindankosi etilongweni, indawo lapho wayeboshwe khona uJosefa.
4 Induna yemilindankosi yamyala ngazo uJosefa ukuba azibheke; wazikhonza; zazisekulindweni izinsukwana.
5 Baphupha iphupho bobabili, kwaba yilowo nalowo iphupho lakhe ngabusuku bunye, yilowo nalowo ngokokuchazwa kwephupho lakhe, umphathizitsha nomphekizinkwa wenkosi yaseGibithe, ababeboshwe etilongweni.
6 UJosefa wangena kubo ekuseni, wabona ukuthi badabukile.
7 Wayesebuza izinceku zikaFaro ezazinaye zilindwe endlini yenkosi yakhe, ethi: “Ubuso benu budabukeleni namuhla na?”
8 Bathi kuye: “Siphuphe iphupho, akakho ongalichaza.” UJosefa wathi kubo: “Ukuchaza akusikho okukaNkulunkulu na? Ake ningilandise lona.”
9 Induna yabaphathizitsha yayisimlandisa uJosefa iphupho layo, yathi kuye: “Ephusheni lami kwakukhona umvini phambi kwami;
10 emvinini kwakukhona amagatsha amathathu; wahluma qede wakhahlela, amahlukuzo awo athela izithelo.
11 Indebe kaFaro yayisesandleni sami; ngathatha izithelo zomvini, ngazikhamela endebeni kaFaro, indebe ngayinikela esandleni sikaFaro.”
12 Wathi uJosefa kuye: “Nakho ukuchazwa kwalo: lawo magatsha amathathu ayizinsuku ezintathu;
13 zingakadluli izinsuku ezintathu, uFaro uzakuphakamisa ikhanda lakho, akubuyisele esikhundleni sakho; uzakunikela indebe esandleni sikaFaro njengokwenza kwakho kwakuqala, lapho wawungumphathizitsha wakhe.
14 Kepha ngikhumbule, nxa usuhlezi kahle, ungenzele umusa, ungibike kuFaro, ungikhiphe kule ndlu.
15 Ngokuba ngebiwa nokwebiwa ezweni lamaHeberu, nalapha futhi angenzanga lutho ukuba bangifake emgodini.”
16 Kwathi induna yabaphekizinkwa ibona ukuthi lokho kuchazwa kwakukuhle, yathi kuJosefa: “Nakimi ephusheni lami kwakungathi kukhona amaqoma amathathu esinkwa esimhlophe ekhanda lami.
17 Eqomeni elingaphezulu kwakukhona izinhlobo zonke zokudla kukaFaro; izinyoni zazikudla eqomeni eliphezu kwekhanda lami.”
18 UJosefa waphendula wathi: “Lokhu kungukuchazwa kwalo: lawo maqoma amathathu ayizinsuku ezintathu;
19 zingakadluli izinsuku ezintathu, uFaro uzakuphakamisa ikhanda lakho, alisuse kuwe, akuphanyeke emthini; izinyoni ziyakudla inyama yakho, ziyisuse kuwe.”
20 Kwathi ngosuku lwesithathu, usuku lokuzalwa kukaFaro, wazenzela izinceku zakhe zonke idili, waphakamisa ikhanda lenduna yabaphathizitsha nelenduna yabaphekizinkwa phakathi kwezinceku zakhe.
21 Wayibuyisela induna yabaphathizitsha esikhundleni sayo, waze wanikela indebe esandleni sikaFaro;
22 kepha wayiphanyeka induna yabaphekizinkwa, njengalokho ebebachazele uJosefa.
23 Nokho induna yabaphathizitsha ayamkhumbula uJosefa, yamkhohlwa.
