17 “Uma uyakuthi enhliziyweni yakho: ‘Lezi zizwe ziningi kunami; ngingazixosha kanjani?’
18 ungazesabi, kodwa ukhumbule kahle lokho uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho akwenza kuFaro nakulo lonke iGibithe:
19 izilingo ezinkulu azibonayo amehlo akho, nezibonakaliso, nezimangaliso, nesandla esinamandla, nengalo eyeluliweyo uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho akukhipha ngakho; uyakwenza kanje uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho kuzo zonke izizwe ozesabayo.
20 Futhi uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho uyakuthuma iminyovu phakathi kwazo, kuze kuthi bona abaseleyo abazithukusayo baphele phambi kwakho.
21 Ngalokho awuyikuzesaba, ngokuba uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho uphakathi kwakho, uNkulunkulu omkhulu nowesabekayo.
