Isahluko 1

1 Umbono ka-Isaya, indodana ka-Amose, awubonayo ngoJuda neJerusalema emihleni ka-Uziya, noJothamu, no-Ahazi, noHezekiya, amakhosi akwaJuda.
2 Yizwani, mazulu, ubeke indlebe, mhlaba, ngokuba uJehova ukhuluma uthi: “Ngikhulisile ngiphakamisile abantwana, kepha bangihlubukile.
3 Inkabi iyamazi umniniyo nembongolo umkhombe womnikaziyo; u-Israyeli akazi, isizwe sami asiqondi.”
4 Hawu, sizwe esonayo, bantu abasindwe ngububi, nzalo yababi, bantwana abonakeleyo! Bamshiyile uJehova, bamdelele oNgcwele ka-Israyeli, babuyele emuva.
5 Ningabe nisashaywa kuphi, nisaqhubeka ukwambuka, na? Lonke ikhanda liyagula, nayo yonke inhliziyo ibuthakathaka.
6 Kusukela ematheni onyawo kuze kube sekhanda akukho okuphelele, ngamanxeba nje, nemivimbo, nemidwa emisha; akukhanywanga ubovu, akuboshwanga, akuthanjiswanga ngamafutha.
7 Izwe lakini liyihlane, imizi yenu ishisiwe ngomlilo, umhlabathi wenu udliwa ngabafokazi phambi kwenu, kuyihlane njengokuchitha kwabafokazi.
8 Indodakazi yaseSiyoni isele njengexhiba esivinini, nanjengedladla ensimini yamaselwa, nanjengomuzi ovinjezelweyo.
9 Uma uJehova Sebawoti ebengasishiyelanga insali, besiyakuba njengeSodoma, sifane neGomora.
10 Yizwani izwi likaJehova nina babusi baseSodoma, nibeke indlebe ekufundiseni kukaNkulunkulu wethu nina bantu baseGomora.
11 “Iyini kimi imihlatshelo yenu eminingi na?” usho uJehova; “ngisuthile ngeminikelo yokushiswa yezinqama nangeyamanoni amathole akhuluphalisiweyo; negazi lezinkunzi nelamawundlu nelezimpongo angithokozi ngalo.
12 Lapho nifika ukubona ubuso bami, ngubani okubize lokhu esandleni senu ukuba ninyathele amagceke ami na?
13 Ningabe nisaletha iminikelo eyize yempuphu; impepho iyisinengiso kimi; ezokwethwasa kwenyanga namasabatha nokubiza imihlangano angivumi ububi kanye nemikhosi.
14 Ezokwethwasa zenu kwenyanga nemikhosi yenu emisiweyo kuyazondwa ngumphefumulo wami; kungumthwalo phezu kwami, ngikhathele ngukukuthwala.
15 Lapho nelula izandla zenu, ngiyakufihla kini amehlo ami; yebo, lapho nenza imikhuleko eminingi, angiyikuzwa; izandla zenu zigcwele igazi.
16 Gezani, nihlanzeke, nisuse ububi bezenzo zenu phambi kwamehlo ami, niyeke ukwenza okubi.
17 Fundani ukwenza okuhle, nifune ukwahlulela, niqondise abacindezeli, nahlulele izintandane, nimele umfelokazi.
18 “Wozani-ke, sithethe indaba,” usho uJehova; “noma izono zenu zibomvu kakhulu, ziyakuba mhlophe njengeqhwa; noma zibomvu njengokububende, ziyakuba njengoboya bezimvu.
19 Uma nivuma, nilalela, niyakudla okuhle kwezwe;
20 kepha uma nala, nihlubuka, niyakudliwa yinkemba,” ngokuba umlomo kaJehova ukhulumile.
21 Yeka umuzi othembekileyo waphenduka, waba yisifebe, wena owawugcwele ukwahlulela! Ukulunga kwakuhlezi khona, kepha manje ababulali.
22 Isiliva lakho seliphendukile amanyela; iwayini lakho lixubene namanzi.
23 Izikhulu zakho ziyizihlubuki nabangane bamasela; bonke bathanda izipho, balandela imivuzo; abahluleli izintandane, nendaba yomfelokazi ayifinyeleli kubo.
24 Ngalokho ithi iNkosi uJehova Sebawoti, uMninimandla ka-Israyeli: “E, ngiyakuzikhulula kwabamelene nami, ngiziphindisele ezitheni zami,
25 ngibuyisele isandla sami kuwe, ngicwengisise impela amanyela akho, ngisuse lonke ithini lakho,
26 ngibuyisele abahluleli bakho njengakuqala, nabeluleki bakho njengasekuqaleni, andukuba ubizwe ngokuthi uMuzi Wokulunga, uMuzi Othembekileyo.”
27 ISiyoni liyakuhlengwa ngokwahlulela nabaphendukayo kulo ngokulunga.
28 Izihlubuki nezoni ziyakubhujiswa kanyekanye, nabamshiyayo uJehova bayakuqedwa.
29 “Yebo, bayakuba namahloni ngama-oki enawanxanelayo, niyangaze ngamasimu enawakhethayo.
30 Ngokuba niyakuba njenge-oki elimaqabunga alo abunile, nanjengensimu engenamanzi.
31 Abanamandla bayakuba njengefilakisi, nemisebenzi yabo njengenhlansi; bayakusha bobabili kanyekanye, akuyikubakho ocimayo.”
