16 ukhuphukele ukulwa nabantu bami u-Israyeli njengefu lokusibekela izwe; kuyakuthi ngezinsuku ezizayo ngikuyise kubantu bami ukuze izizwe zingazi, lapho ngizingcwelisa ngawe Gogi emehlweni azo.
17 “ ‘Isho kanje iNkosi uJehova, ithi: Wena unguye engakhuluma ngaye ngezinsuku zamandulo ngezandla zezinceku zami abaprofethi bakwa-Israyeli ababeprofetha ngalezo zinsuku iminyaka eminingi ukuthi ngiyakukuyisa kubo na?
18 Kuyakuthi ngalolo suku lapho uGogi efika ezweni lakwa-Israyeli, isho iNkosi uJehova, ukufutheka kwami kukhuphukele emakhaleni ami.
