1 “Sase siphenduka sahamba, saya ehlane ngendlela eya eLwandle Olubomvu, njengalokho ebeshilo kimi uJehova. Sazungeza intaba yaseSeyiri izinsuku eziningi.
2 “UJehova wakhuluma kimi, wathi:
3 ‘Sekuyisikhathi niyizungeza le ntaba; phendukani, niye ngasenyakatho.
4 Yala abantu ngokuthi: “Niyakudabula umkhawulo wabafowenu, abantwana bakwa-Esawu abahlala eSeyiri; bayakunesaba, kepha maniqaphele nokho,
5 ningalwi nabo, ngokuba angiyikuninika izwe labo, ngisho nendawo yamathe onyawo, lokhu ngimnikile u-Esawu intaba yaseSeyiri ibe yifa lakhe.
6 Niyakuthenga kubo ukudla ngemali ukuba nidle, nithenge kubo futhi amanzi ngemali ukuba niphuze.” ’
7 “Ngokuba uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho ukubusisile emsebenzini wonke wesandla sakho; ukwazile ukuhamba kwakho kuleli hlane elikhulu; nakule minyaka engamashumi amane uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho waba nawe, awuswelanga lutho.
8 “Sase sidlula sisuka kubafowethu, abantwana bakwa-Esawu abahlala eSeyiri, sashiya indlela yase-Araba, ne-Elati, ne-Esiyoni Geberi. Saphenduka sadlula ngendlela yasehlane lakwaMowabi.
9 “UJehova wayesethi kimi: ‘Ungakhathazi uMowabi, ungalwi nabo ekulweni, ngokuba angiyikukunika izwe lakhe libe yifa, lokhu ngibanikile abantwana bakwaLoti i-Ari libe yifa labo.’ ”
10 Kwakuhlala khona kuqala ama-Emi, abantu abakhulu, abaningi, abade njengama-Anaki;
11 laba bathiwa namaRefa njengama-Anaki, kepha abakwaMowabi bababiza ngokuthi ama-Emi.
12 AmaHori nawo ayehlala eSeyiri kuqala, kepha abantwana bakwa-Esawu bawaxosha, bawachitha phambi kwabo, bakha esikhundleni sawo njengalokho u-Israyeli enza kulo izwe elaliyifa lakhe, aphiwe lona nguJehova.
13 “ ‘Sukani kalokhu, niwele umfula iZeredi.’ Sase siwela-ke umfula iZeredi.
14 “Izinsuku esahamba ngazo sisuka eKadeshi Barineya saze sawela umfula iZeredi zaziyiminyaka engamashumi amathathu nesishiyagalombili, kwaze kwaphela isizukulwane samadoda empi phakathi kwekamu, njengalokho uJehova afunga kuwo.
15 Futhi isandla sikaJehova sasimelene nawo ukuwachitha phakathi kwekamu, aze aphela.
16 “Kwathi onke amadoda empi esephelile afa phakathi kwabantu,
17 uJehova wakhuluma kimi, wathi:
18 ‘Wena uyakuwela i-Ari, umkhawulo wakwaMowabi;
19 lapho ususondela malungana nabantwana bakwa-Amoni, ungabakhathazi, ungalwi nabo, ngokuba angiyikukunika izwe labantwana bakwa-Amoni libe yifa lenu, lokhu ngibanikile lona abantwana bakwaLoti libe yifa labo.’ ”
20 Nalelo lithiwa izwe lamaRefa; amaRefa ahlala khona kuqala; kepha abakwa-Amoni bawabiza ngokuthi amaZamuzumi,
21 abantu abakhulu, abaningi, abade njengama-Anaki; kepha uJehova wabachitha phambi kwabo; babaxosha, bakha esikhundleni sabo,
22 njengalokho ebenzela abantwana bakwa-Esawu ababehlala eSeyiri, lapho ewachitha amaHori phambi kwabo, bawaxosha, bahlala esikhundleni sawo kuze kube namuhla;
23 kanjalo nama-Avi ayehlala emizaneni kwaze kwaba seGaza, anqoba amaKafitori ayevela eKafitori, akha esikhundleni sawo.
24 “ ‘Sukani nihambe, niwele umfula i-Arinoni; bhekani, nginikele esandleni sakho uSihoni umAmori, inkosi yaseHeshiboni, nezwe lakhe: qala ukulidla, ulwe naye ekulweni.
25 Namuhla ngiyakuqala ukubeka uvalo nokukwesaba phezu kwezizwe zonke eziphansi kwezulu, eziyakuzwa indaba yakho, zithuthumele, ziqhaqhazele ngenxa yakho.’
26 “Ngase ngithuma izithunywa kuSihoni inkosi yaseHeshiboni, zisuka ehlane laseKedemoti, zinamazwi okuthula, ngokuthi:
27 ‘Mangidabule izwe lakho; ngiyakuhamba ngomgwaqo, ngingajiki ngakwesokunene noma ngakwesokhohlo.
28 Uyakuthengisa kimi ukudla ngemali ukuba ngidle, ningiphe amanzi ngemali ukuba ngiphuze; mangidabule kuphela ngezinyawo,
29 njengalokho bangenzela abantwana bakwa-Esawu ababehlala eSeyiri nabakwaMowabi ababehlala e-Ari, ngize ngiwele iJordani, ngingene ezweni uJehova uNkulunkulu wethu asinika lona.’
30 Kepha uSihoni inkosi yaseHeshiboni akasivumelanga ukuba sidlule kuye, ngokuba uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho wenza lukhuni umoya wakhe, wenza ukuba ibe nenkani inhliziyo yakhe, ukuze amnikele esandleni sakho njenganamuhla.
31 “UJehova wayesethi kimi: ‘Bheka, ngiqalile ukunikela uSihoni nezwe lakhe phambi kwakho: qala ukulidla ukuba udle ifa lezwe lakhe.’
32 “USihoni waphuma wasihlasela, yena nabo bonke abantu bakhe, ukuzokulwa eJahasi.
33 UJehova uNkulunkulu wethu wamnikela phambi kwethu, samnqoba yena namadodana akhe nabantu bakhe bonke.
34 Sathatha yonke imizi yakhe ngaleso sikhathi, sachitha saqeda yonke imizi enamadoda nabesifazane nezingane; asishiyanga muntu;
35 izinkomo kuphela sazithathela zona zaba yimpango yethu kanye nempango yemizi esasiyithathile.
36 Kusukela e-Aroweri elisosebeni lomfula i-Arinoni nasemzini osesigodini kuze kube kwaGileyadi akubangakho muzi owasahlula ngokuphakama; uJehova uNkulunkulu wethu wayinikela yonke phambi kwethu;
37 izwe labantwana bakwa-Amoni nokho awusondelanga kulo, uhlangothi lomfula iJakobi, nemizi esezintabeni, nakuphi lapho uNkulunkulu wasenqabela khona.
