12 Kuyakuthi lapho izinsuku zakho seziphelile, ube usulele koyihlo, ngiyakumisa inzalo yakho emva kwakho eyakuphuma ezibilinini zakho, ngiqinise umbuso wayo.
13 Yiyo eyakwakhela igama lami indlu; ngiyakuqinisa isihlalo sobukhosi sombuso wayo kuze kube phakade.
14 Mina ngiyakuba nguyise, yona ibe yindodana yami; uma yenza okubi, ngiyakuyilaya ngenduku yabantu nangemivimbo yabantwana babantu,
15 kepha umusa wami awuyikusuka kuyo, njengalokho ngawususa kuSawule engamsusa ngaphambi kwakho.
16 Indlu yakho nombuso wakho kuyakuqiniswa njalo phambi kwakho; isihlalo sakho sobukhosi siyakumiswa kuze kube phakade.’ ”
17 Njengawo onke lawo mazwi nanjengawo wonke lowo mbono uNathani wakhuluma kuDavide.

21 Ngenxa yezwi lakho nanjengokwenhliziyo yakho wenzile konke lokho okukhulu ukuba ukwazise inceku yakho.
22 “Ngalokho umkhulu, Nkosi Jehova, ngokuba akakho onjengawe, akukho uNkulunkulu ngaphandle kwakho njengakho konke esikuzwileyo ngezindlebe zethu.
23 Yisiphi isizwe nesisodwa emhlabeni esinjengabantu bakho u-Israyeli, uNkulunkulu ayakuzihlengela bona ukuba babe ngabantu bakhe, azenzele igama, anenzele nina izinto ezinkulu, alenzele izwe lakini izinto ezesabekayo phambi kwabantu bakho owazihlengela bona eGibithe ezizweni nakubo onkulunkulu bazo, na?
