1 Wangena eJeriko, wadabula khona.
2 Bheka, kwakukhona indoda, igama layo linguZakewu, ingumthelisi omkhulu, icebile.
3 Yayifuna ukumbona uJesu ukuthi ungubani; yahluleka ngenxa yesixuku, ngokuba yayimfushane.
4 Yagijimela phambili, yakhwela emthombeni ukuba imbone, ngokuba ebezakudlula ngakhona.
5 Esefikile uJesu kuleyo ndawo wabheka phezulu, wathi kuyo: “Zakewu, shesha wehle, ngokuba namuhla ngimelwe ukuhlala endlini yakho.”
6 Washesha wehla, wamamukela ngokuthokoza.
7 Kuthe bekubona, bakhonona bonke, bathi: “Uye kungenisa kwandoda eyisoni.”
8 Kodwa uZakewu wasukuma, wathi eNkosini: “Bheka, Nkosi, ngipha abampofu inxenye yempahla yami; kuthi uma ngimaphucile umuntu into ngamacebo, ngiyibuyisa iphindwe kane.”
9 UJesu wathi kuye: “Namuhla insindiso ifikile kule ndlu, lokhu naye eyindodana ka-Abrahama.
10 Ngokuba iNdodana yomuntu ize ukufuna nokusindisa okulahlekileyo.”
11 Kuthe ukuba bakuzwe lokho, weleka walandisa umfanekiso, ngokuba ebeseduze neJerusalema nangokuba bebethi umbuso kaNkulunkulu uzakubonakala masinyane.
12 Wathi-ke: “Umuntu othile wohlanga olukhulu waya ezweni elikude eyozithathela umbuso, abuye.
13 Wayesebiza izinceku zakhe eziyishumi, wazinika omina abayishumi, wathi kuzo: ‘Hwebani ngabo, ngize ngibuye.’
14 “Kepha abantu bomuzi wakhe babemzonda, bathuma amanxusa emva kwakhe, bethi: ‘Asithandi ukuba lo abuse phezu kwethu.’
15 “Kwathi esebuyile ekuthatheni umbuso, wathi azibizelwe kuye lezo zinceku abezinike imali ukuba azi ukuthi yileyo naleyo izuzeni ngokuhweba.
16 “Yavela-ke eyokuqala, yathi: ‘Nkosi, umina wakho uzuze omina abayishumi.’
17 “Wathi kuyo: ‘Kuhle-ke, nceku enhle; lokhu ufunyanwe uthembekile kokuncinyane, uzakubusa phezu kwemizi eyishumi.’
18 “Yafika neyesibili, yathi: ‘Umina wakho, Nkosi, uzuze omina abayisihlanu.’
19 “Wathi nakuleyo: ‘Nawe yiba phezu kwemizi eyisihlanu.’
20 “Kwafika nenye, yathi: ‘Nkosi, nangu umina wakho ebengimkhwezile esongwe endwangwini.
21 Ngokuba bengikwesaba, lokhu ungumuntu olukhuni; uthabatha ongakubekanga, uvuna ongakuhlwanyelanga.’
22 “Wathi kuyo: ‘Ngizakukwahlulela ngomlomo wakho wena nceku embi. Ubuwazi ukuba ngingumumtu olukhuni, ngithabatha engingakubekanga, ngivuna engingakuhlwanyelanga;
23 awufakanga ngani imali yami ebhange, mina-ke ekufikeni kwami ngabe ngiyibizile kanye nenzalo, na?’
24 “Wayesethi kwababemi khona: ‘Maphuceni umina, nimnike onawomina abayishumi.’
25 “Kepha bathi kuye: ‘Nkosi, unawomina abayishumi.’
26 “Ngithi kini: Yilowo nalowo onakho uyakuphiwa, kepha ongenakho uyakwaphucwa nalokho anakho.
27 Kodwa lezo zitha zami ezazingathandi ukuba ngibuse phezu kwazo, ziletheni lapha, nizibulale phambi kwami.”
28 Eseshilo lokho waqhubekela phambili, wakhuphukela eJerusalema.
29 Kwathi esondele eBetfage naseBethaniya ngasentabeni ethiwa eYeminqumo, wathuma ababili kubafundi bakhe,
30 ethi: “Hambani niye emzaneni obhekene nani, nothi ukuba ningene kuwo, nizakufumana ithole lembongolo likhulekiwe, okungazange kuhlale muntu kulo; lithukululeni, nililethe.
31 Uma umuntu enibuza ethi: ‘Nilithukululelani na?’ anothi: ‘INkosi iyalidinga.’ ”
32 Ababethunyiwe bahamba-ke, bafumana kunjengokusho kwakhe kubo.
33 Kuthe besalithukulula ithole, abaninilo bathi kubo: “Nilithukululelani ithole na?”
34 Bathi: “INkosi iyalidinga.”
35 Base beliletha kuJesu; babeka izingubo zabo phezu kwethole, bamkhwelisa uJesu.
36 Esahamba, babendlala izingubo zabo endleleni.
37 Esesondela ekwehleleni kweNtaba Yeminqumo, isixuku sonke sabafundi saqala ukuthokoza nokumdumisa uNkulunkulu ngezwi elikhulu ngemisebenzi yonke yamandla esiyibonileyo,
38 sithi: “Ubusisiwe uMbusi ozayo egameni leNkosi, ukuthula ezulwini nenkazimulo kweliphezulu!”
39 Abanye babaFarisi besesixukwini bathi kuye: “Mfundisi, bakhuze abafundi bakho.”
40 Waphendula wathi: “Ngithi kini: Uma bethula laba, amatshe azakumemeza.”
41 Kwathi esondela, ewubona umuzi, wawukhalela.
42 Wathi: “Sengathi nga wazi nawe ngalolu suku okokuthula. Kepha kalokhu kufihlakele emehlweni akho.
43 Ngokuba uyakufikelwa yizinsuku, lapho izitha ziyakukukaka ngodonga lwempi, zikuhaqe, zikuvimbezele nxazonke,
44 zikuwise phansi, wena nabantwana abakuwe, zingashiyi itshe phezu kwetshe phakathi kwakho, ngokuba ungasazanga isikhathi sokuhanjelwa kwakho.”
45 Wangena ethempelini, waqala ukuxosha abathengisayo,
46 wathi kubo: “Kulotshiwe ukuthi: ‘Indlu yami iyakuba yindlu yokukhuleka,’ kepha nina niyenze ‘umhume wabaphangi’.”
47 Wayefundisa ethempelini imihla ngemihla. Kepha abapristi abakhulu, nababhali, nezikhulu zabantu bafuna ukumbulala.
48 Kodwa babengatholi ukuthi bangenzani, ngokuba abantu bonke babebambelela kuye bemuzwa.
