Isahluko 20

1 “Nxa uphuma impi ukuhlasela izitha zakho, bese wubona amahhashi, nezinqola, nabantu abaningi kunawe, ungabesabi, ngokuba uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho unawe, yena owakukhuphula ezweni laseGibithe.
2 Kuyakuthi lapho nisondela empini, afike umpristi, akhulume kubantu, athi kubo:
3 ‘Yizwa, Israyeli! Nisondela namuhla empini ukuhlasela izitha zenu; inhliziyo yenu mayingadangali, ningesabi, ningaqhaqhazeli, ningashaywa luvalo phambi kwazo,
4 ngokuba uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho nguye ohamba nani, anilwele nezitha zenu ukuba anisindise.’
5 “Izinduna ziyakukhuluma kubantu, zithi: ‘Ngumuphi umuntu owakhile indlu entsha engayivulanga na? Makahambe, abuyele endlini yakhe, funa afele empini, omunye umuntu ayivule.
6 Ngumuphi umuntu otshalile isivini engadlanga izithelo zaso na? Makahambe, abuyele endlini yakhe, funa afele empini, omunye umuntu asidle.
7 Ngumuphi umuntu onengoduso engayithathanga na? Makahambe, abuyele endlini yakhe, funa afele empini, omunye umuntu ayithathe.’
8 Izinduna ziyakukhuluma futhi kubantu, zithi: ‘Ngumuphi umuntu owesabayo onenhliziyo edangeleyo na? Makahambe, abuyele endlini yakhe, funa izinhliziyo zabafowabo zincibilike njengenhliziyo yakhe.’
9 Kuyakuthi lapho izinduna seziqedile ukukhuluma, zikhethe izinduna zamabandla eziyakubahola abantu.
10 “Nxa usondela emzini ukulwa nawo, mawumemezele ukuthula kuwo.
11 Kuyakuthi uma ukuphendula ngezwi lokuthula, uzivulele kuwe, abantu bonke abafunyaniswa phakathi kwawo baba yizinceku zempoqo, bakukhonze.
12 Uma ungenzi ukuthula kuwe kepha ukuhlasela, uyakuwuvimbezela,
13 nalapho uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho ewunikela esandleni sakho, uyakushaya bonke abesilisa bawo ngosiko lwenkemba,
14 kepha abesifazane, nabantwana, nezinkomo, nakho konke okusemzini, yebo, yonke impango yawo, uyakukuthatha kube yimpango yakho, uyidle impango yezitha zakho uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho akunike yona.
15 Uyakwenze njalo kuyo yonke imizi ekude kakhulu nawe, engesiyo imizi yalezi zizwe.
16 “Kodwa emizini yalaba bantu uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho akunika bona babe yifa lakho awuyikusindisa lutho oluphefumulayo,
17 kepha uyakubabhubhisa nokubabhubhisa: amaHeti, nama-Amori, namaKhanani, namaPherizi, namaHivi, namaJebusi njengokukuyala kukaJehova uNkulunkulu wakho,
18 ukuze banganifundisi ukuba nenze zonke izinengiso zabo abazenzile konkulunkulu babo, none kuJehova uNkulunkulu wenu.
19 “Nxa uvimbezela umuzi isikhathi eside ngokulwa nawo ukuba uwuthathe, awuyikuyichitha imithi ngokuyigalela ngezembe, ngokuba ungadla kuyo; ungayigawuli, ngokuba umuthi wasendle ungumuntu yini ukuba uvinjezelwe nguwe na?
20 Imithi oyaziyo ukuthi ayisiyo imithi yokudla, yiyona kuphela oyakuyichitha, uyigawule, wakhe izinqaba ngasemzini olwa nawe, uze uwe.
