Chapitre 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22

1 Waza uSolomon wawabizela ndawonye amadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli, neentloko zonke zezizwe, izikhulu zezindlu zooyise zoonyana bakaSirayeli, kukumkani uSolomon eYerusalem, ukuba bayinyuse ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova, iphume emzini kaDavide: yiZiyon ke leyo.

2 Abizelwa ndawonye kukumkani uSolomon onke amadoda akwaSirayeli emthendelekweni ngenyanga enguEtanim: yinyanga yesixhenxe ke leyo.

3 Eza ke onke amadoda amakhulu akwaSirayeli; bayithwala ababingeleli ityeya leyo.

4 Benyuka nayo ityeya kaYehova, nentente yokuhlangana, neempahla zonke zengcwele ezibe zisententeni; benyuka nazo ababingeleli nabaLevi.

5 Ke ukumkani uSolomon nebandla lonke lamaSirayeli, elibe lihlanganiselene kuye, linaye phambi kwetyeya, babingelela impahla emfutshane neenkomo ezingenakubalwa, ezingenakulinganiswa ukuba zininzi kwazo.

6 Bayingenisa ababingeleli ityeya yomnqophiso kaYehova endaweni yayo, endaweni yezihlabo endlwini, engcweleni kangcwele, phantsi kwamaphiko eekerubhi.

7 Ngokuba iikerubhi zaye ziwolulele amaphiko phezu kwendawo yetyeya, iikerubhi zayisithelisa ityeya nezibonda zayo ngaphezulu.

8 Zazizide izibonda, zibonakala iincam zezibonda engcweleni phambi kwendawo yezihlabo, azabonakala ngaphandle; zisekhona unanamhla.

9 Kwakungekho nto etyeyeni, yayingamacwecwe amabini amatye kuphela, awawabeka khona uMoses eHorebhe, oko uYehova wanqophisana noonyana bakaSirayeli, ekuphumeni kwabo ezweni laseYiputa.

10 Kwathi, ekuphumeni kwababingeleli engcweleni, lasuka ilifu layizalisa indlu kaYehova.

11 Ababingeleli ababa nakuma balungiselele ngenxa yelifu; ngokuba ubuqaqawuli bukaYehova bayizalisa indlu kaYehova.

12 Waza wathi uSolomon, UYehova wathi, uya kuhlala esithokothokweni.

13 Ukukwakhela, ndikwakhele indlu, ukuba ibe yeyokuhlala wena, indawo yokuhlala wena ngonaphakade.

14 Wee guququ ukumkani walisikelela lonke ibandla lakwaSirayeli (laye ke limi lonke ibandla lakwaSirayeli).

15 Wathi yena, Makabongwe uYehova, uThixo kaSirayeli, owathetha ngomlomo wakhe kuDavide ubawo, wakuzalisa ngesandla sakhe, esithi,

16 Kususela kwimini yokubakhupha kwam abantu bam amaSirayeli eYiputa, andinyulanga mzi ezizweni zonke zakwaSirayeli wokwakha indlu, yokuba libe khona igama lam; ndanyula uDavide ukuba abe phezu kwabantu bam amaSirayeli.

17 Kwaye kukho entliziyweni kaDavide ubawo ukuthi alakhele indlu igama likaYehova uThixo kaSirayeli.

18 Wathi uYehova kuDavide ubawo, Ngenxa enokuba kwakukho entliziyweni yakho ukuthi ulakhele indlu igama lam, walungisa ngokuthi kubekho oko entliziyweni yakho;

19 noko ke akusayi kuyakha indlu wena: unyana wakho ophuma esinqeni sakho, nguye oya kulakhela indlu igama lam.

20 Ulimisile ke uYehova ilizwi lakhe awalithethayo; ndivelile endaweni kaDavide ubawo, ndahlala etroneni yakwaSirayeli, njengoko wakuthethayo uYehova; ndalakhela indlu igama likaYehova uThixo kaSirayeli.

21 Ndayimisela khona indawo yetyeya, apho ukhona umnqophiso kaYehova, awawenzayo nobawo bethu ekubakhupheni kwakhe ezweni laseYiputa.

22 Wema ke uSolomon phambi kwesibingelelo sikaYehova, ebusweni bebandla lonke lamaSirayeli, wazolulela ezulwini izandla zakhe.

23 Wathi: Yehova Thixo kaSirayeli, akukho unjengawe, ezulwini phezulu nasemhlabeni phantsi, ubagcinelayo umnqophiso nenceba abakhonzi bakho abahamba phambi kwakho ngentliziyo yabo yonke;

24 umgcineleyo umkhonzi wakho uDavide ubawo oko wakuthethayo kuye; wakuthetha ngomlomo wakho, wakuzalisa ngesandla sakho, njengoko kunjalo namhla.

25 Kaloku, Yehova, Thixo kaSirayeli, mgcinele umkhonzi wakho uDavide ubawo oko wakuthethayo kuye, usithi, Ebusweni bam akuyi kunqunyukelwa ndoda yakuhlala etroneni yakwaSirayeli; ukuba kodwa bathe oonyana bakho bayigcina indlela yabo, bahamba phambi kwam, njengoko uhambe phambi kwam wena.

26 Kaloku, Thixo kaSirayeli, makanyaniseke amazwi akho, owawathethayo kumkhonzi wakho uDavide ubawo.

27 Gxebe uThixo angade ahlale emhlabeni na? Yabona, amazulu, amazulu awo amazulu, akakulingene; hina ke, yona le ndlu ndiyakhileyo!

28 Noko ke kunonelele ukuthandaza komkhonzi wakho, nokutarhuzisa kwakhe, Yehova Thixo wam, ukuphulaphule ukumemelela nokuthandaza, athandaza ngako umkhonzi wakho phambi kwakho namhla;

29 ukuba amehlo akho akhangele kule ndlu ubusuku nemini, kwindawo othe, Liya kuba kuyo igama lam; uphulaphule umthandazo athandaza ngawo umkhonzi wakho kule ndawo.

30 Phulaphula ukutarhuzisa komkhonzi wakho, nabantu bakho amaSirayeli, abaya kuthandaza ngako kule ndawo; uve ke wena endaweni ohlala kuyo emazulwini; uve ke uxolele.

31 Xa athe umntu wona ummelwane wakhe, wathwaliswa isifungo, wafungiswa, weza wafunga phambi kwesibingelelo sakho kule ndlu:

32 yiva ke wena emazulwini, wenze, ugwebe kubakhonzi bakho; umgwebe ongendawo, uyibeke indlela yakhe phezu kwentloko yakhe; umgwebele olilungisa, umnike ngokobulungisa bakhe.

33 Xa bathe abantu bakho, amaSirayeli, boyiswa ziintshaba zabo, kuba bekonile, baza babuyela kuwe, balivuma igama lakho, bathandaza batarhuzisa kuwe bekule ndlu:

34 yiva ke wena emazulwini, usixolele isono sabantu bakho amaSirayeli, ubabuyisele emhlabeni owawunika ooyise.

35 Xa lithe izulu lavalwa, akwabakho mvula, kuba bekonile, baza bathandaza bekule ndawo, balivuma igama lakho, babuya esonweni sabo, ngokuba ubacinezele:

36 yiva ke wena emazulwini, usixolele isono sabakhonzi bakho, abantu bakho amaSirayeli, ngokuba ubafundisa indlela elungileyo abaya kuhamba ngayo, unise imvula ezweni lakho, olinike abantu bakho ukuba libe lilifa.

37 Xa kuthe kwakho indlala elizweni, xa kuthe kwakho indyikitya yokufa, xa kuthe kwakho imbabala, nexoshomba, neenkumbi ezinqunquthayo; xa zithe iintshaba zabangqinga elizweni, emizini yabo; nokuba sisiphi isibetho, nokuba sisiphi isifo esithe sakho:

38 ukuthandaza, nokutarhuzisa nokuba kukuphi, okuthe kwenziwa ngubani, nokuba ngabantu bakho bonke amaSirayeli, abathe besazi elowo isibetho sentliziyo yakhe, bazolulela kule ndlu izandla zabo:

39 yiva ke wena emazulwini, endaweni ohlala kuyo, uxolele; wenze, umnike elowo ngokweendlela zakhe zonke, ngokuyazi kwakho intliziyo yakhe (ngokuba nguwe wedwa ozaziyo iintliziyo zoonyana bonke babantu);

40 ukuze bakoyike yonke imihla abahleli ngayo emhlabeni owawunika oobawo.

41 Kananjalo owolunye uhlanga, ongengowabantu bakho amaSirayeli, xa athe wavela ezweni elikude ngenxa yegama lakho

42 (ngokuba baya kuliva igama lakho elikhulu, nesandla sakho esithe nkqi, nengalo yakho eyolukileyo); weza ke lowo, wathandaza ekule ndlu:

43 yiva ke wena emazulwini, endaweni ohlala kuyo, wenze ngako konke athe wakunqula owolunye uhlanga, ukuze zonke izizwe zomhlaba zilazi igama lakho, zikoyike njengabantu bakho amaSirayeli, zazi ukuba ibizwe ngegama lakho le ndlu ndiyakhileyo.

44 Xa bathe abantu bakho baphuma, baya kulwa notshaba lwabo, ngendlela obathume ngayo, bathandaza kuYehova, bebhekisa kulo mzi uwunyulileyo, nakule ndlu ndiyakhele igama lakho:

45 yiva ke emazulwini ukuthandaza kwabo nokutarhuzisa kwabo, ubagwebele.

46 Xa bathe bakona (ngokuba akukho mntu ungoniyo), waba nomsindo, wabanikela elutshabeni, bathi abathimbi babathimba, babasa ezweni lotshaba olo, nokuba likude nokuba likufuphi;

47 baza bakunyamekela oko ngentliziyo kwelo zwe bathinjelwe kulo, babuya, batarhuzisa kuwe ezweni lababathimbileyo, besithi, Sonile, senza ubugwenxa, senza okungendawo;

48 babuyela kuwe ngentliziyo yabo yonke, nangomphefumlo wabo wonke, bekwelo zwe leentshaba zabo ezibathimbileyo, bathandaza kuwe, bebhekisa elizweni labo owalinika ooyise, kulo mzi uwunyulileyo, kule ndlu ndiyakhele igama lakho:

49 yiva ke emazulwini, endaweni ohlala kuyo, ukuthandaza kwabo nokutarhuzisa kwabo, ubagwebele,

50 ubaxolele abantu bakho ngoko kona, nokukreqa kwabo konke abakreqe ngako kuwe, ubenzele imfesane phambi kwababathimbileyo, basikwe bona yimfesane ngabo.

51 Ngokuba ngabantu bakho, nelifa lakho, owabakhuphayo eYiputa ezikweni lesinyiti;

52 ukuba amehlo akho akhangele ekutarhuziseni komkhonzi wakho, nasekutarhuziseni kwabantu bakho amaSirayeli, ukuba ubeve ekukunquleni kwabo konke.

53 Ngokuba wabahlula wena ezizweni zonke zomhlaba, ukuba babe lilifa lakho, njengoko wakuthetha ngoMoses umkhonzi wakho, ekubakhupheni kwakho oobawo eYiputa, Nkosi Yehova.

54 Kwathi xa agqibileyo ukuthandaza uSolomon kuYehova konke oko kuthandaza nokutarhuzisa, wesuka phambi kwesibingelelo sikaYehova ekuguqeni ngamadolo akhe, ezolulele ezulwini izandla zakhe.

55 Wema, walisikelela lonke ibandla lakwaSirayeli ngezwi elikhulu, wathi,

56 Makabongwe uYehova, obanike ukuphumla abantu bakhe amaSirayeli, njengoko konke wakuthethayo; akwaphalala nalinye ilizwi kuwo onke amazwi akhe alungileyo, awawathethayo ngoMoses umkhonzi wakhe.

57 UYehova uThixo wethu makabenathi, njengokuba wayenoobawo bethu; angasishiyi, angasilahli;

58 ukuze ayithobele kuye intliziyo yethu, sihambe ngeendlela zakhe zonke, sigcine imithetho yakhe, nemimiselo yakhe, namasiko akhe, njengoko abebawisele umthetho ngako oobawo.

59 Makathi nala mazwi am, nditarhuzisileyo ngawo phambi koYehova, asondele kuYehova uThixo wethu, imini nobusuku, ukuba amgwebele umkhonzi wakhe, abagwebele abantu bakhe amaSirayeli, into yemini ngemini yayo;

60 ukuze zazi zonke izizwe zomhlaba, ukuba uYehova nguye uThixo, akukho wumbi.

61 Mayiphelele intliziyo yenu kuYehova uThixo wethu, ukuba nihambe ngemimiselo yakhe, niyigcine imithetho yakhe, njengoko kunjalo namhla.

62 Waye ke ukumkani, namaSirayeli onke kunye naye, ebingelela imibingelelo phambi koYehova.

63 Wabingelela ke uSolomon imibingelelo yokubulela, awayibingelelayo kuYehova; amashumi amabini anesibini amawaka eenkomo, ikhulu elinamanci amabini lamawaka empalula emfutshane. Bayisungula ke indlu kaYehova, ukumkani lowo noonyana bonke bakaSirayeli.

64 Ngaloo mini ukumkani wawungcwalisa umphakathi wentendelezo ephambi kwendlu kaYehova. Ngokuba wenza khona idini elinyukayo, nomnikelo wokudla, namanqatha emibingelelo yokubulela; kuba isibingelelo sobhedu esiphambi koYehova besisincinane, singenakulamkela idini lonke elinyukayo, nomnikelo wokudla, namanqatha emibingelelo yokubulela.

65 Ngelo xesha uSolomon wenza umthendeleko, enamaSirayeli onke, ibandla elikhulu, elithabathele ekungeneni kweHamati, lesa emlanjeni waseYiputa, phambi koYehova uThixo wethu, iintsuku ezisixhenxe neentsuku ezisixhenxe, zaziintsuku ezilishumi elinesine.

66 Ngosuku lwesibhozo wabandulula abantu. Bambonga ukumkani, baya ke ezintenteni zabo, bevuya, bechwayithile ngenxa yokulunga konke awakwenzayo uYehova kuDavide umkhonzi wakhe, nakumaSirayeli abantu bakhe.
