28 Lapho niyakukhonza onkulunkulu, umsebenzi wezandla zabantu, imithi namatshe, abangaboni, abangezwa, abangahogeli.
29 Uma nina niselapho nimfuna uJehova uNkulunkulu wenu, niyakumfumana, uma nimfuna ngayo yonke inhliziyo yenu nangawo wonke umphefumulo wenu.
30 Uma usekuhluphekeni, zikwehlela zonke lezi zinto, uyakuphendukela kuJehova uNkulunkulu wakho ngezinsuku zokugcina, ulalele izwi lakhe,
31 ngokuba uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho unguNkulunkulu onomusa; akayikukushiya, angakubhubhisi, angakhohlwa isivumelwano sawoyihlo asifungela bona.
32 “Ngokuba ake ubuze izinsuku ezidlulileyo ezaziphambi kwakho, kusukela osukwini uNkulunkulu adala ngalo umuntu emhlabeni, kusukela kolunye uhlangothi lwezulu kuze kufike kolunye, uma kwake kwaba khona into engaka nokuba kwake kwezwakala okungangayo na?
