1 UEfrayim wasukelana nomoya; usukela ulophu lwasempumalanga. Imini yonke wandisa amanga nembuqo: banqophisana neAsiriya, kusiwa ioli eYiputa.

2 UYehova ubambene noYuda, umvelela uYakobi ngokweendlela zakhe; uya kumbuyisela ngokweentlondi zakhe.

3 Esizalweni wambamba umkhuluwa wakhe ngesithende, ekuqineni kwakhe wazamana noThixo.

4 Wazamana naso isithunywa, wafeza, walila, watarhuzisa kuso; samfumana eBheteli, apho ke sasithetha nathi.

5 UYehova, uThixo wemikhosi, uYehova sisikhumbuzo sakhe.

6 Wena ke, buyela kuThixo wakho; gcina inceba nokusesikweni, uhlale uthembele kuThixo wakho.

7 Ungumrhwebi ophethe isikali senkohliso, uthanda ukucudisa.

8 Wathi uEfrayim, Noko ndisisityebi, ndizifumanele ubutyebi; yonke imigushanxa yam ayindizuzisanga bugwenxa busisono.

9 Kanti mna ndinguYehova, uThixo wakho nje, kwasezweni laseYiputa; ndisaya kukubeka ezintenteni, njengokwemihla yomthendeleko.

10 Ndithethe kubaprofeti, ndandisa imibono mna, ndenza imizekeliso ngezandla zabaprofeti.

11 Ukuba iGiliyadi ilishinitshini, yoba yinto engento kuphela. Babingelela iinkomo eGiligali; izibingelelo zabo nazo zoba njengeemfumba zamatye emiqeleni yesisimi.

12 UYakobi wabalekela ezweni lakwa-Aram, uSirayeli wakhonza ngenxa yomfazi, wagcina imihlambi ngenxa yomfazi.

13 UYehova wamnyusa uSirayeli eYiputa ngomprofeti ke, wagcinwa ngomprofeti ke.

14 UEfrayim uqumbise kakrakra; iNkosi yakhe iya kuwaphosa amagazi akhe phezu kwakhe, isibuyisele kuye isingcikivo sakhe.
