Isahluko 3

1 Wo kumuzi wezingazi! Wonke ugcwele amanga nempango, ukuphanga akupheli.
2 Ngukuqhuma kwesiswebhu, nomsindo wokugodlozela kwamasondo, namahhashi agadulayo, nezinqola ezixhumayo;
3 ngabamahhashi abasukelayo, nenkemba enjengelangabi, nomkhonto onyazimayo, abaningi ababuleweyo nenqwaba yezidumbu, kungekho ukuphela kwezidikadika; bakhubeka ngezidikadika zabo,
4 ngenxa yobuningi bobufebe besifebe esibukekayo, umnikazi wokulumba, esithengisa izizwe ngobufebe baso, nemindeni ngamalumbo aso.
5 “Bheka, ngimelene nawe,” usho uJehova Sebawoti; “ngiyakuphakamisa imiphetho yakho ebusweni bakho, ngibonise izizwe ubunqunu bakho, nemibuso ihlazo lakho.
6 Ngiyakuphonsa okunengakayo phezu kwakho, ngikuhlazise, ngikubeke ube yinto ebukwayo.
7 Kuyakuthi bonke abakubonayo bakubalekele, bathi: ‘INineve lichithekile, ngubani oyakulililela na?’ Ngiyakukufunelaphi abaduduzi na?”
8 Umuhle wena kuneNo Amoni elaliphakathi kwemifula, elalizungezwe ngamanzi, elilugange lwalo lwalululwandle, nelidonga lwalo lungamanzi, na?
9 IKushe neGibithe kwakungamandla alo angenakuphela; uPhuthi namaLubi babe ngabasizi bakho.
10 Nalo lamukiswa, laya ekuthunjweni, nezingane zalo zachotshozwa ezingosini zazo zonke izitaladi; benza inkatho ngezikhulu zalo, nabo bonke abakhulu balo baboshwa ngamaketanga.
11 Uyakudakwa nawe, ufihlwe; futhi uyakufuna inqaba yokubalekela izitha.
12 Zonke izinqaba zakho ziyimikhiwane enamakhiwane ayingqalabutho; uma inyakaziswa, awela emlonyeni wodlayo.
13 Bheka, abantu bakho phakathi kwakho bangabesifazane nje; amasango ezwe lakho avulekele impela izitha zakho, umlilo udlile imigoqo yakho.
14 Zikhelele amanzi okuvinjezelwa, uqinise izinqaba zakho; ngena odakeni, uxove ibumba, uqinise uhonela.
15 Lapho umlilo uyakukuqeda, inkemba ikunqume, ikudle njengenkasa; zandise njengenkasa, zandise njengesikhonyane!
16 Wandisile abathengisi bakho kunezinkanyezi zezulu; inkasa iyakhula, indize imuke.
17 Izikhulu zakho zinjengezinkumbi, nezinduna zakho zinjengamaqulo esikhonyane esihlezi phakathi kwezingange ngosuku olumakhaza, kepha lapho liphuma ilanga, sindize simuke, ingabe isaziwa indawo yaso ukuthi iphi.
18 Abelusi bakho balele, nkosi yase-Asiriya; abakhulu bakho bayaphumula; abantu bakho bahlakazekile ezintabeni, akakho obabuthayo.
19 Akukho ukupholiswa kokwaphulwa kwakho; umvimbo wakho unzima; bonke abezwa umbiko ngawe bashaya izandla ngawe, ngokuba ngubani ububi bakho obungadlulelanga njalo phezu kwakhe na?
