3 Bheka, ungumkhoba, ungumsedari waseLebanoni; unamagatsha amahle, namaqabunga anomthunzi, nesiqu esiphakemeyo; isihloko sawo siphakathi kwamafu.
4 Amanzi awukhulisa, utwa lwawuphakamisa; imifula yawo yahamba yazungeza indawo yokutshalwa kwawo; yayisithuma imisele yayo kuyo yonke imithi yasendle.
5 Ngalokho isiqu sawo sasiphakeme kunayo yonke imithi yasendle; izingatsha zawo zandiswa, namagatsha awo elulwa ngamanzi amaningi ekuwaxhantiseni kwawo.
6 Zonke izinyoni zezulu zakha emagatsheni awo, zonke izilwane zasendle zazalela phansi kwezingatsha zawo; emthunzini wawo zahlala zonke izizwe ezinkulu.
7 Wawusumuhle ebukhulwini bawo, ngobude bamagatsha awo, ngokuba impande yawo yayingasemanzini amaningi.
8 Imisedari yasensimini kaNkulunkulu yayingenakuwusitha, imisayipuresi yayingafani nezingatsha zawo, nemipelatani yayingenjengamagatsha awo, futhi kwakungekho nowodwa umuthi ensimini kaNkulunkulu ofana nawo ngobuhle.
9 Ngawenza waba muhle ngobuningi bamagatsha awo, imithi yonke yase-Edene eyayisensimini kaNkulunkulu yaze yaba nomhawu.
10 “ ‘Ngalokho isho kanje iNkosi uJehova, ithi: Ngenxa yokuba uphakeme ngobude, wabeka isihloko sawo phakathi kwamafu, nenhliziyo yakhukhumala ngokuphakama kwawo,
11 ngiyakuwunikela esandleni sonamandla wezizwe uyakwenza nokwenza kuye njengobubi bawo ngiwuxoshe.
12 Abafokazi, abesabekayo bezizwe, bawunqumile, bawushiya. Amagatsha awo awele ezintabeni nasezigodini, nezingatsha zawo zaphukile kuyo yonke imifudlana yezwe, nabo bonke abantu behlile emthunzini wawo, bawushiya.
13 Encithakalweni yawo kuyakuhlala zonke izinyoni zezulu, zonke izilwane zasendle zibe semagatsheni awo
14 ukuba kungabikho muthi ngasemanzini okhukhumala ngokuphakama kwawo, ungabeki isihloko sawo emafwini, yebo, nenamandla ingemi ngokuziphakamisa, yonke ephuze amanzi; ngokuba yonke inikelwe ekufeni kokuphansi komhlaba phakathi kwabantwana babantu, kwabehlelayo egodini.
15 “ ‘Isho kanje iNkosi uJehova, ithi: Ngosuku owehlela ngalo endaweni yabafileyo ngalwenza utwa ukuba lulile, ngalusibekela, ngavimba imifula yalo, namanzi amaningi avalelwa; ngalenza iLebanoni libe mnyama ngenxa yawo; imithi yonke yasendle yadangala ngenxa yawo.
16 Ngomdumo wokuwa kwawo ngathuthumelisa izizwe, lapho ngiwehlisela endaweni yabafileyo kanye nabehlela egodini; yonke imithi yase-Edene ekhethekileyo nemihle yaseLebanoni, yonke ephuze amanzi, yaduduzwa kokuphansi komhlaba.
17 Nayo yehlela kanye nawo endaweni yabafileyo kwabagwaziweyo ngenkemba, ababe yingalo yawo, ababehlela emthunzini wawo phakathi kwezizwe.
18 “ ‘Pho, ufana nobani ngodumo nangobukhulu phakathi kwemithi yase-Edene na? Nokho uyakwehliselwa kokuphansi komhlaba kanye nemithi yase-Edene, ulale phakathi kwabangasokile nabagwazwe ngenkemba. Lo unguFaro nesixuku sakhe sonke, isho iNkosi uJehova.’ ”
