12 Kepha ngiyakushiya phakathi kwakho abantu abahluphekayo nabampofu; bayakwethemba igama likaJehova.
13 Insali yakwa-Israyeli ayisayikwenza okubi, ingakhulumi amanga, kungafunyanwa emlonyeni wabo ulimi olukhohlisayo; yebo, bayakwaluka, babuthise, kungekho obesabisayo.”

15 UJehova ususile ukwahlulelwa kwakho, uxoshile izitha zakho. INkosi yakwa-Israyeli, uJehova, iphakathi kwakho; awusayikwesaba okubi.
16 Ngalolo suku kuyakuthiwa kulo iJerusalema: “Ungesabi, Siyoni! Izandla zakho mazingadangali.

19 Bhekani, ngaleso sikhathi ngiyakuphatha bonke abakuhluphayo, ngisindise abaqhugayo, ngibuthe abaxoshiweyo, ngibenze indumiso negama abahlazo labo lalisemhlabeni wonke.
20 Ngaleso sikhathi ngiyakuningenisa, ngaleso sikhathi ngiyakunibutha, ngokuba ngiyakunenza igama nendumiso phakathi kwabantu bonke bomhlaba, lapho ngibuyisa ukuthunjwa kwenu phambi kwamehlo enu,” usho uJehova.
