1 “Abapristi bamaLevi, yebo, sonke isizwe sakwaLevi asiyikuba nasabelo nafa kanye no-Israyeli; siyakudla iminikelo yomlilo kaJehova nefa lakhe.
2 Asiyikuba nafa phakathi kwabafowabo; uJehova uyifa laso, njengalokho ekhulumile kuso.
3 “Lokhu kuyakuba yimfanelo yabapristi ephuma kubantu abanikela ngomhlatshelo, noma inkomo noma imvu, ukuba bamnike umpristi umkhono, nemihlathi yombili, nenanzi.
4 Ulibo lwamabele akho, nolwewayini lakho, nolwamafutha akho, nezandulela zoboya bezimvu zakho uyakumnika khona.
5 Ngokuba uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho umkhethile kuzo zonke izizwe zakho ukuba eme, akhonze egameni likaJehova, yena namadodana akhe, kuze kube phakade.
6 “Uma umLevi evela noma kuliphi isango kwa-Israyeli wonke, lapho egogobele khona, afike ngaso sonke isifiso somphefumulo wakhe endaweni uJehova ayakuyikhetha,
7 uyakukhonza egameni likaJehova uNkulunkulu wakhe njengokwenza kwabo bonke abafowabo amaLevi emiyo khona phambi kukaJehova.
8 Ayakuphiwa izabelo ezilingeneyo ngaphandle kwalokho okuvela ngokuthengisa ngefa likayise.
9 “Nxa usufike ezweni uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho akunika lona, awuyikufunda ukwenza izinengiso zalezo zizwe.
10 Makungafunyanwa kuwe umuntu odabulisa indodana yakhe noma indodakazi yakhe emlilweni, noma umbhuli, noma ohlola imihlola, noma owenza imilingo, noma umlumbi,
11 noma owenza iziphonso, noma obhula emadlozini, noma umthakathi, noma umlozikazana.
12 Ngokuba yilowo nalowo ozenza lezi zinto uyisinengiso kuJehova; ngenxa yalezi zinengiso uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho uyabaxosha phambi kwakho.
13 Mawuphelele kuJehova uNkulunkulu wakho.
14 “Ngokuba lezi zizwe oyakuzidla ziyabalalela abahlola imihlola nabanamadlozi; kepha wena uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho akakuvumelanga ukwenza kanjalo.
15 UJehova uNkulunkulu wakho uyakukuvusela umprofethi phakathi kwakho kubafowenu onjengami; nimlalele yena
16 njengakho konke owakufisa kuJehova uNkulunkulu wakho eHorebe ngosuku lomhlangano ngokuthi: ‘Mangingabe ngisalizwa izwi likaJehova uNkulunkulu wami, ngingabe ngisawubona lomlilo omkhulu futhi, funa ngife.’
17 “UJehova wayesethi kimi: ‘Basho kahle lokho abakukhulumile.
18 Ngiyakubavusela umprofethi onjengawe phakathi kwabafowabo, ngibeke amazwi ami emlonyeni wakhe, akhulume kubo konke engimyala ngakho.
19 Kuyakuthi yilowo nalowo ongayikulalela amazwi ami ayakuwakhuluma egameni lami, mina ngikufune kuye.
20 Kepha umprofethi oyakukhuluma izwi ngokuziqhenya egameni lami engingamyalanga ukulikhuluma, noma ekhuluma egameni labanye onkulunkulu, lowo mprofethi uyakufa.’
21 “Uma uthi enhliziyweni yakho: ‘Singalazi kanjani izwi uJehova angalikhulumanga na?’
22 yazi-ke ukuthi lokhu umprofethi akukhulumayo egameni likaJehova, bese ingenzeki leyo nto, ingaveli iyiyo leyo nto, akusiye uJehova oyikhulumile; umprofethi uyikhulumile ngokuziqhenya; ungamesabi.
