Isahluko 44

1 Wayala inceku yendlu yakhe, wathi: “Gcwalisa amasaka alawa madoda ngokudla okulingene namandla abo okuthwala, ufake imali yalowo nalowo emlonyeni wesaka lakhe.
2 Ufake indebe yami, indebe yesiliva, emlonyeni wesaka lomncane kanye nemali yamabele akhe.” Yenza-ke njengezwi likaJosefa alishilo.
3 Ngakusasa nxa sekusile, amadoda amukiswa, wona nezimbongolo zawo.
4 Esephumile emzini, engakabi kude, uJosefa wathi encekwini yakhe: “Suka ulandele lawo madoda; nxa uwafica, yisho kuwo ukuthi: ‘Niphindiseleni okuhle ngokubi na?
5 Lena akusiyo indebe inkosi yami ephuza ngayo, ebhula ngayo, na? Nenze kabi ngokwenze njalo.’ ”
6 Yawafica, yakhuluma kuwo lawa mazwi.
7 Ayesethi kuyo: “Inkosi yami ikhulumelani amazwi anjengalawa? Akube kude nezinceku zakho ukwenze njalo.
8 Bheka, imali esayifumana emilonyeni yamasaka ethu sayibuyisa ezweni laseKhanani, sayiletha kuwe; pho, besingeba kanjani endlini yenkosi yakho isiliva noma igolide na?
9 Lowo wasezincekwini zakho eyakutholwa kuye, makafe yena, thina sibe yizigqila zenkosi yami.”
10 Yathi: “Kalokhu makube njengamazwi enu; lowo ezakutholakala kuye makabe yisigqila sami, nina ningabi nacala.”
11 Ayeseshesha ukwehlisela phansi, kwaba yileyo naleyo isaka layo, yileyo naleyo yavula isaka layo.
12 Yanyalula, yaqala ngenkulu yagcina ngencane; indebe yatholwa esakeni likaBenjamini.
13 Ayeseklebhula izingubo zawo, yileyo naleyo yethwesa imbongolo yayo, abuyela emzini.
14 UJuda nabafowabo bafika endlini kaJosefa; wayesekhona lapho; bawa phansi phambi kwakhe.
15 UJosefa wayesethi kubo: “Isenzo sini lesi enisenzileyo na? Beningazi yini ukuthi umuntu onjengami angabhula nokubhula na?”
16 Wathi uJuda: “Sizakuthini enkosini yami na? Sizakukhulumani? Sizakuzihlanguza kanjani? UNkulunkulu ufumene ububi bezinceku zakho; bheka, siyizigqila zenkosi yami thina naye etholakele esandleni sakhe indebe.”
17 Wathi: “Makube kude kimi ukwenze njalo; umuntu etholakele esandleni sakhe indebe uyakuba yisigqila sami, kepha nina manihambe kahle, nenyuke, niye kuyihlo.”
18 UJuda wayesesondela kuye, ethi: “O nkosi yami, inceku yakho mayikhulume izwi ezindlebeni zenkosi yami, ungavuthi ulaka ngenceku yakho, ngokuba ungangoFaro wena.
19 Inkosi yami yabuza izinceku zayo, yathi: ‘Ninoyihlo, ninomfowenu, na?’
20 Sase sithi enkosini yami: ‘Sinobaba, ixhegu, nomntwana wobuxhegu bakhe omncane; umnewabo ufile, usesele yedwa kwabakanina; uyise uyamthanda.’
21 “Wawusuthi ezincekwini: ‘Mehliseni kimi ukuba ngimbone ngamehlo ami.’
22 Sathi enkosini: ‘Umfana akanakumshiya uyise; uma emshiya, uyise uzakufa.’
23 Wathi wena ezincekwini zakho: ‘Uma umfowenu omncane engehli nani, anisayikubuye nibone ubuso bami.’
24 Kwathi sesikhuphukele encekwini yakho ubaba, samlandisa amazwi enkosi.
25 “Wathi ubaba: ‘Buyelani, nisithengele ukudlana.’
26 Sathi thina: ‘Asinakwehla. Uma umfowethu omncane enathi, siyakwehla, ngokuba asinakubona ubuso balowo muntu, uma umfowethu omncane engenathi.’
27 “Yayisithi kithi inceku yakho ubaba: ‘Niyazi ukuthi umkami wangizalela amadodana amabili.
28 Enye yaphuma kimi; ngathi: Impela idatshuliwe nokudatshulwa; angiyiboni kuze kube manje.
29 Nanxa nithatha nalena, niyisuse kimi, yehlelwa yingozi, niyakwehlisela izimvi zami endaweni yabafileyo ngosizi.’
30 “Kalokhu nxa ngifika encekwini yakho ubaba, umfana engenathi, lokhu inhliziyo yakhe ibambelele enhliziyweni yomfana,
31 kuzakuthi lapho ebona ukuthi umfana akakho, afe, izinceku zakho zibe zehlisela endaweni yabafileyo izimvi zenceku yakho ubaba ngosizi.
32 Ngokuba inceku yakho yaba yisibambiso somfana kubaba, yathi: ‘Uma ngingambuyiseli kuwe, ngiyakuba necala kubaba kuze kube phakade.’
33 “Ngalokho inceku yakho ake ihlale esikhundleni somfana, ibe yisigqila senkosi, umfana akhuphuke nabafowabo.
34 Ngokuba ngingakhuphukela kanjani kubaba, umfana engenami, funa ngibone okubi okuzakumehlela ubaba, na?”
