8 Ungabesabi, ngokuba nginawe ukuba ngikophule,” usho uJehova.

12 Wayesethi uJehova kimi: “Ubone kahle, ngokuba ngiyakulilinda izwi lami ukuba ngilenze.”
13 Lase lifika kimi izwi likaJehova ngokwesibili, lithi: “Ubonani na?” Ngathi: “Ngibona ikhanzi elibilayo. Ubuso balo bungasenyakatho.”
14 Wayesethi kimi uJehova: “Okubi kuyakuqhambuka ngasenyakatho, kubehlele bonke abakhileyo bomhlaba.
15 Ngokuba bheka, ngiyakubiza yonke imindeni yemibuso yasenyakatho,” usho uJehova. “Iyakufika, yilowo nalowo ubeke isihlalo sawo sobukhosi ezikhaleni zamasango aseJerusalema, nakuzo zonke izingange zalo nxazonke, nakuyo yonke imizi yakwaJuda.
16 Ngiyakukhipha ukwahlulela kwami phezu kwabo ngenxa yabo bonke ububi babo, ngokuba bangihlubukile, bashisela abanye onkulunkulu impepho, bakhuleka kuyo imisebenzi yezandla zabo.
17 “Ngalokho bopha izinkalo zakho, usuke, ukhulume kubo bonke engikuyala ngabo; ungapheli amandla ngabo, funa ngiqede amandla akho ebusweni babo.
18 Ngokuba bheka, ngikubekile namuhla ube ngumuzi obiyelweyo, nensika yensimbi, nezingange zethusi ngakulo izwe lonke, nangawo amakhosi akwaJuda nezikhulu zalo, nangakubo abapristi balo nabantu bezwe.
19 Bayakulwa nawe, kepha abayikukwahlula, ngokuba nginawe,” usho uJehova, “ukuba ngikophule.”
