1 Wandisa etempileni, walinganisa iintsika; zaba ziikubhite ezintandathu ububanzi ngapha, zaba ziikubhite ezintandathu ububanzi nangapha; bububanzi ke bentente.

2 Ububanzi bomnyango bebuziikubhite ezilishumi; amacala omnyango aba ziikubhite ezintlanu ngapha, iikubhite ezintlanu nangapha. Wabulinganisa ubude bayo, baziikubhite ezimashumi mane, ububanzi baziikubhite ezimashumi mabini.

3 Wangena ke ngaphakathi, walinganisa intsika yomnyango; yaziikubhite ezimbini, nomnyango waziikubhite ezintandathu ukuphakama, ububanzi bomnyango baziikubhite ezisixhenxe.

4 Wabulinganisa ubude bayo, baziikubhite ezimashumi mabini, ububanzi baziikubhite ezimashumi mabini, wabhekisa etempileni; wathi kum, Yingcwele kangcwele le.

5 Walulinganisa udonga lwendlu, lwaziikubhite ezintandathu, ububanzi bendawo yokwayama baziikubhite ezine; yajikeleza ngeenxa zonke endlwini leyo.

6 Amagumbi endawo yokwayama aba mathathu, igumbi phezu kwegumbi, aba mashumi mathathu; aya kufika eludongeni ebeyinalo indlu le, ngasemagumbini endawo yokwayama, eyajikeleza ngeenxa zonke, ukuze abe nokubambeka khona; kodwa angabambeki eludongeni lwayo indlu.

7 Kwaya kuba banzi ukujikeleza, okukhona siya sinyuka isakhiwo ngokwamagumbi endawo yokwayama; ngokuba oko kwayijikeleza indlu le, kwaya kusanda okukhona inyukayo, kuyijikeleza indlu le ngeenxa zonke; ngenxa yoko indlu le yaya iba banzi okunyuka inyukayo; lwaba kwanjalo olungaphantsi udidi, ukunyuka ukuya kolungaphezulu ngokolo lungaphakathi.

8 Ndabona kwasendlwini le indawo ephakamileyo, ejikelezileyo ngeenxa zonke; iziseko zamagumbi endawo yokwayama zaziyingcongolo epheleyo, ziikubhite ezintandathu, ukuya entlanganweni.

9 Ububanzi bodonga, ebe inabo indawo yokwayama ngaphandle, bebuziikubhite ezintlanu; yaba kwanjalo indawo eshiyekileyo endlwini enamagumbi endawo yokwayama ekule ndlu.

10 Phakathi kwamagumbi ibe ibububanzi beekubhite ezimashumi mabini obujikelezileyo, bayijikeleza indlu ngeenxa zonke.

11 Iminyango yendawo yokwayama yayikhangele endaweni eshiyekileyo; omnye umnyango ukhangele ngentla, omnye umnyango ukhangele ngezantsi; ububanzi bendawo eshiyekileyo bebuziikubhite ezintlanu, bajikeleza ngeenxa zonke.

12 Isakhiwo esibe siphambi kwendawo eqhiwukileyo, sasiziikubhite ezimashumi asixhenxe ububanzi baso ngecala elisingise entshonalanga; udonga lwesakhiwo eso lwaluziikubhite ezintlanu ububanzi balo; lwajikeleza ngeenxa zonke, nobude baso baba ziikubhite ezimashumi asithoba.

13 Wayilinganisa ke indlu leyo, yaba ziikubhite ezilikhulu ubude; indawo eqhiwukileyo, nesakhiwo sayo, neendonga zaso, zaba ziikubhite ezilikhulu ubude.

14 Ububanzi bobuso bayo indlu, nobendawo eqhiwukileyo ekhangele empumalanga baba ziikubhite ezilikhulu.

15 Wabulinganisa ke ubude besakhiwo esibe siphambi kwendawo eqhiwukileyo, ebe singasemva kwayo, neegalari zaso ngapha nangapha, iikubhite zaba likhulu; nendawo engcwele yangaphakathi, neevaranda zentendelezo.

16 Imibundu leyo yeminyango, neefestile ezo zivaliweyo, neegalari ezo zijikelezileyo ezindidini zazo zontathu (malunga nemibundu yeminyango kukho amaceba emithi, ejikelezile ngeenxa zonke; nomhlaba ude wema ngeefestile, iifestile ke zigutyungelwe),

17 naphezu kweminyango, kwada kwasendlwini ngaphakathi nangaphandle, naseludongeni lonke, kwajikeleza ngeenxa zonke, ngaphakathi nangaphandle, kwaba yimilinganiso.

18 Kwaye kwenziwe iikerubhi namasundu; yalisundu phakathi kwekerubhi nekerubhi; ikerubhi yanobuso obubini;

19 yabubuso bomntu obubheke esundwini ngapha, yabubuso bengonyama obubheke esundwini ngapha. Kwaye kwenjiwe njalo endlwini yonke, kwajikeleza ngeenxa zonke.

20 Zenziwa zathabathela emhlabeni zesa phezu kweminyango, iikerubhi namasundu, eludongeni ke lwetempile.

21 Itempile, imigubasi yayo ibe imbombo-ne; nobuso bengcwele, imbonakalo yabo yabonakala ikwanjalo.

22 Isibingelelo sasingumthi, ukubhite-ntathu ukuphakama, buziikubhite-mbini ubude baso; besineembombo zaso nommiso waso, namacala aso engumthi. Wathi kum, Le yitafile ephambi koYehova.

23 Bezimbini iingcango zetempile nezengcwele.

24 Bezingambini iingcango kwiminyango leyo, ziziingcango ezijingayo zombini, zimbini komnye umnyango, zimbini iingcango nakomnye.

25 Kwaye kwenziwe kuzo, kwiingcango ezo zetempile, iikerubhi namasundu, kunjengoko bekwenziwe ngako ezindongeni. Kwaye kukho isinyuko somthi phambi kwevaranda ngaphandle.

26 Iifestile ezivaliweyo namasundu zazingapha nangapha, emacaleni evaranda, nasemagumbini endawo yokwayama kuyo indlu, nezinyuko.
