1 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,

2 Nyana womntu, uhleli phakathi kwendlu eneenkani; banamehlo okubona, ababoni; baneendlebe zokuva, abeva; ngokuba bayindlu eneenkani.

3 Wena ke, nyana womntu, zilungiselele iimpahla zemfuduka, ufuduke emini emehlweni abo, ufuduke endaweni yakho, uye ndaweni yimbi emehlweni abo, mhlawumbi bobona; ngokuba bayindlu eneenkani.

4 Uze uyikhuphe impahla yakho ngokwempahla yemfuduka emini, emehlweni abo; ke wena uphume ngokuhlwa emehlweni abo, njengokuphuma kwabathinjwa.

5 Gqobhoza eludongeni emehlweni abo, uyikhuphe ngakhona.

6 Yithwale ngamagxa emehlweni abo, yikhuphe kwakuba mnyama; bugqubuthele ubuso bakho, ungalikhangeli ilizwe; ngokuba ndikwenze isimanga kwindlu kaSirayeli.

7 Ndenjenjalo, njengoko ndawiselwa umthetho ngako; ndayikhupha emini impahla yam ngokwempahla yemfuduka; ngokuhlwa ndazigqobhozela eludongeni ngesandla, ndayikhupha kwakuba mnyama, ndayithwala ngamagxa eme hlweni abo.

8 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum kusasa, lisithi,

9 Nyana womntu, indlu kaSirayeli, indlu eneenkani, ayitshongo na kuwe ukuthi, Wenza ntoni na?

10 Yithi kubo, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Esi sihlabo sisingisele kwisikhulu esiseYerusalem, nakwindlu yonke kaSirayeli, abaphakathi kwayo abathinjiweyo.

11 Yithi, Ndisisimanga kuni; njengoko ndenze ngako, kuya kwenzeka ngokunjalo kubo; baya kufuduswa, bathinjwe.

12 Isikhulu esiphakathi kwabo siya kuyithwala ngamagxa kuthe thsu mnyama, siphume; baya kugqobhoza eludongeni ukuba bayikhuphe ngakhona; siya kugqubuthela ubuso baso sona, kuba singayi kulikhangela ilizwe ngamehlo.

13 Ndiya kuwutwabulula umnatha wam phezu kwaso, sibanjiswe ngumgibe wam, ndisise eBhabheli, ezweni lamaKaledi; ke asiyi kulibona, noko siya kufela khona.

14 Ndiya kukuchithachitha emimoyeni yonke konke esiphahlwe kuko, abancedisi baso namahlelo aso onke, ndirhole ikrele emva kwabo;

15 bazi ukuba ndinguYehova, ekubaphangalaliseni kwam ezintlangeni, ndibachithachithe emazweni.

16 Ndoshiya kubo amadoda ambalwa, asinde ekreleni, nasendlaleni, nasendyikityeni yokufa; ukuze bawabalise amasikizi abo onke ezintlangeni abaye kuzo; bazi ukuba ndinguYehova.

17 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,

18 Nyana womntu, wosidla isonka sakho ungcangcazela, uwasele amanzi akho ugungqa, unesithukuthezi.

19 Wothi ke kubantu belizwe, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ngokusingisele kubemi baseYerusalem, emhlabeni wakwaSirayeli, ukuthi, Isonka sabo bosidla benesithukuthezi, bawasele amanzi abo bemangalisiwe; ukuze ezweni labo kube senkangala, ingabikho inzaliseko yalo ngenxa yogonyamelo lwabo bonke abahleli kulo.

20 Yoba ngamanxuwa imizi emiweyo, kube senkangala elizweni; nazi ukuba ndinguYehova.

21 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,

22 Nyana womntu, uyintoni na lo mzekeliso ninawo emhlabeni wakwaSirayeli, wokuthi, Imihla iyoluka, iyadaka imibono yonke?

23 Ngako oko yithi kubo, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Ndiya kuwenza uphele lo mzekeliso, bangabi sazekelisa ngawo kwaSirayeli; ke, yithi kubo, Isondele imihla, nesiphelo semibono yonke.

24 Ngokuba akuyi kuba sabakho namnye umbono okhohlakeleyo, nokuvumisa okucengacengayo, phakathi kwendlu kaSirayeli.

25 Ngokuba ndinguYehova, ndiya kuthetha; ilizwi endisukuba ndilithetha liya kwenzeka, lingayi kulibala; ngokuba ngemihla yenu, ndlundini ineenkani, ndithetha ilizwi, ndilenze; itsho iNkosi uYehova.

26 Kwafika ilizwi likaYehova kum, lisithi,

27 Nyana womntu, yabona, indlu kaSirayeli ithi, Umbono awubonayo yena lo, ngowemihla emininzi; uprofetele amaxesha akude.

28 Ngako oko yithi kubo, Itsho iNkosi uYehova ukuthi, Akayi kuba salityaziswa onke amazwi am; ilizwi endisukuba ndilithetha liya kwenzeka; itsho iNkosi uYehova.
