1 Ngomnyaka weshumi nesishiyagalombili wenkosi uJerobowamu indodana kaNebati u-Abiyamu waba yinkosi kwaJuda.
2 Wabusa iminyaka emithathu eJerusalema; igama likanina lalinguMahakha, indodakazi ka-Abisalomu.
3 Wahamba ezonweni zonke zikayise ayezenzile ngaphambi kwakhe; inhliziyo yakhe yayingekho kuNkulunkulu wakhe ngokupheleleyo njengenhliziyo kaDavide uyise.
4 Nokho ngenxa kaDavide uJehova uNkulunkulu wakhe wamnika isibani eJerusalema ngokuvusa indodana yakhe emva kwakhe nokumisa iJerusalema,
5 ngokuba uDavide wenza okulungile emehlweni kaJehova, kaphambukanga ngalutho amyala ngalo zonke izinsuku zokuhamba kwakhe, kuphela endabeni ka-Uriya umHeti.
6 Kwakukhona ukulwa phakathi kukaRehobowamu noJerobowamu zonke izinsuku zokuhamba kwakhe.
7 Ezinye izindaba zika-Abiyamu nakho konke akwenzayo angithi kulotshiwe encwadini yezindaba zemihla ngemihla yamakhosi akwaJuda na? Kwakukhona ukulwa phakathi kuka-Abiyamu noJerobowamu.
8 U-Abiyamu wayeselala koyise; bammbela emzini kaDavide; u-Asa indodana yakhe waba yinkosi esikhundleni sakhe.
9 Ngomnyaka wamashumi amabili kaJerobowamu, inkosi yakwa-Israyeli, u-Asa waqala ukubusa phezu kukaJuda.
10 Wabusa iminyaka engamashumi amane nanye eJerusalema; igama likanina lalinguMahakha indodakazi ka-Abisalomu.
11 U-Asa wenza okulungile emehlweni kaJehova njengoDavide uyise.
12 Waxosha izifebe zethempeli ezweni, wasusa nezithombe ayezenzile uyise.
13 Wamsusa uMahakha unina ebukhosikazini, ngokuba wayenzela u-Ashera isithombe esinengekayo; u-Asa wanquma isithombe sakhe, wasishisa ngasemfudlaneni iKidroni.
14 Kodwa izindawo eziphakemeyo azisuswanga; nokho inhliziyo ka-Asa yayikuJehova ngokupheleleyo zonke izinsuku zakhe.
15 Wangenisa endlini kaJehova izinto ezingcwele zikayise nezinto zakhe ezingcwele: isiliva, negolide, nezitsha.
16 Kwakukhona ukulwa phakathi kuka-Asa noBahasha inkosi yakwa-Israyeli zonke izinsuku zabo.
17 UBahasha inkosi yakwa-Israyeli wenyuka ukuhlasela uJuda, wakha iRama, ukuze angavumeli muntu ukuphuma nokungena ku-Asa inkosi yakwaJuda.
18 U-Asa wayesethatha lonke isiliva negolide elalisele engcebeni yendlu kaJehova nengcebo yendlu yenkosi, wakunikela ezandleni zezinceku zakhe; inkosi u-Asa yazithuma kuBeni Hadadi indodana kaTabirimoni kaHeziyoni, inkosi yase-Aramu, owayehlala eDamaseku, yathi:
19 “Kukhona isivumelwano phakathi kwami nawe naphakathi kukababa noyihlo; bheka, ngithuma kuwe isipho sesiliva negolide; hamba waphule isivumelwano sakho noBahasha inkosi yakwa-Israyeli ukuba asuke kimi.”
20 UBeni Hadadi wayilalela inkosi u-Asa, wathuma izinduna zempi yakhe ukuba zihlasele imizi yakwa-Israyeli, wanqoba i-Ijoni, neDani, ne-Abela Beti Mahakha, nalo lonke iKineroti, kanye nalo lonke izwe lakwaNafetali.
21 Kwathi lapho uBahasha esekuzwile lokho, wayeka ukwakha iRama, wahlala eTirisa.
22 Inkosi u-Asa yayisibiza wonke uJuda, akwababikho owayenokuzilandulela, basusa amatshe aseRama nemithi yalo uBahasha ayakhe ngakho; inkosi u-Asa yakha ngakho iGeba lakwaBenjamini neMispa.
23 Zonke ezinye izindaba zika-Asa, nawo onke amandla akhe, nakho konke akwenzayo, nemizi ayakhayo, angithi kulotshiwe encwadini yezindaba zemihla ngemihla yamakhosi akwaJuda na? Ngesikhathi sobudala bakhe wayenesifo ezinyaweni zakhe.
24 Wayeselala u-Asa koyise, wembelwa koyise emzini kaDavide uyise; uJehoshafati indodana yakhe waba yinkosi esikhundleni sakhe.
25 UNadabi indodana kaJerobowamu waqala ukubusa phezu kuka-Israyeli ngomnyaka wesibili ka-Asa inkosi yakwaJuda, wabusa phezu kuka-Israyeli iminyaka emibili.
26 Wenza okubi emehlweni kaJehova, wahamba endleleni kayise nasesonweni sakhe onisa ngaso u-Israyeli.
27 UBahasha indodana ka-Ahiya wendlu ka-Isakare wamenzela ugobe; uBahasha wamnqoba eGibethoni elingelamaFilisti, ngokuba uNadabi naye wonke u-Israyeli babelivimbezela iGibethoni.
28 Ngomnyaka wesithathu ka-Asa inkosi yakwaJuda uBahasha wambulala, wabusa esikhundleni sakhe.
29 Kwathi eseyinkosi, wabulala yonke indlu kaJerobowamu, kashiyelanga uJerobowamu noyedwa ophefumulayo, waze wamqothula njengezwi uJehova alikhulumile ngesandla senceku yakhe u-Ahiya waseShilo,
30 ngenxa yezono zikaJerobowamu ona ngazo, futhi onisa ngazo u-Israyeli, ngokucunula kwakhe acunula ngakho uJehova uNkulunkulu ka-Israyeli.
31 Ezinye izindaba zikaNadabi nakho konke akwenzayo angithi kulotshiwe encwadini yezindaba zemihla ngemihla yamakhosi akwa-Israyeli na?
32 Kwakukhona ukulwa phakathi kuka-Asa noBahasha inkosi yakwa-Israyeli zonke izinsuku zabo.
33 Ngomnyaka wesithathu ka-Asa inkosi yakwaJuda uBahasha indodana ka-Ahiya waqala ukubusa phezu kuka-Israyeli wonke eTirisa, wabusa iminyaka engamashumi amabili nane.
34 Wenza okubi emehlweni kaJehova, wahamba endleleni kaJerobowamu nasesonweni sakhe onisa ngaso u-Israyeli.
