Nehemiya unikela lubondza lwelidolobha

27Ngesikhatsi sekunikelwa kwelubondza lweJerusalema, emaLevi afunwa aze atfolakala lapho abehlala khona, atsatfwa aletfwa eJerusalema kutsi atewungenela lomkhosi ngenjabulo, nangetingoma tekubonga, nangemculo wabokhencekhence, newemahabhu, newemalire lanetintsambo letinyenti. 28Nebahlabeli nabo babutfwa kulo lonkhe laseJerusalema nemaphetselo alo, kusukela emitini yemaNethofa, 29naseBhethi Gilgali, nasesigodzini saseGeba, nase-Azmavethi, njengobe bahlabeli nabo bese batakhele imiti emacentselweni aseJerusalema. 30Batsi nase batihlambululile ngekwelisiko baphristi nemaLevi, base bahlambulula bantfu, nemasango kanye nalolubondza.

31Ngase ngikhuphula baholi bakaJuda baya etulu elubondzeni.“etulu elubondzeni” nome “kugudla lubondza” Ngase ngilawula emakwaya lamabili ebahlabeli kutsi abonge ngemculo.

Leli lelinye lalitawuchubeka lapha etulu elubondzeni“etulu elubondzeni” nome “kugudla lubondza” liye ngesekudla, kubheka ngaseSangweni Lebulongo. 32BoHoshaya kanye nencenye yebaholi bakaJuda babalandzela ngemuva, 33nabo-Azariya, na-Ezra, naMeshulamu, 34naJuda, naBhenjamini, naShemaya, naJeremiya, 35ngisho nalabanye baphristi lababenemacilongo kanye naZakhariya, umsa waJonathani, umsa waShemaya, umsa waMathaniya, umsa waMikhaya, umsa waZakhuri, umsa wa-Asafa, 36nabomnakabo: boShemaya, na-Azareli, naMilalayi, naGilalayi, naMayi, naNethaneli, naJuda, naHanani, netingubhu tabo telikhetselo laDavide, inceku yaNkulunkulu. Ezra, ingcweti yetemtsetfo, abehola wonkhe lomkhumbi walowo mkhosi. 37ESangweni Lemtfombo bachubeka bakhuphuka ngetitebhisi telubondza lweLidolobha laDavide letenyuka kulo, bendlule ngetulu kwendlu yaDavide baze bayewufika eSangweni Lemanti ngasemphumalanga.

38Lena lenye ikwaya yebahlabeli yayichubeka ngale, yacondza ngesancele iphambana nalena lenye lecondze ngasekudla. Ngabalandzela ngisetulu elubondzeni“ngisetulu elubondzeni” nome “ngigudla lubondza” nginencenye yalabanye bantfu, sendlula uMbhoshongo Wemahhavu saya eLubondzeni Lolubanti, 39nasetikweLisango laka-Efrayimu, sendlulela nakulakaJeshana, nakuLetinhlanti, neMbhoshongo waHananeli, neweLikhulu kuze kuyewufika eSangweni Letimvu. Befika bema eSangweni Labomahlalesangweni.

40Lamakwaya lamabili labehlabelela kubonga esuka atsatsa tindzawo tawo lapha ekhatsi nendlu yaNkulunkulu, nami futsi kanjalo kanye nencenye yetindvuna, 41nebaphristi nabo batsatsa tindzawo tabo, bo-Eliyakimu, naMaseya, naMiniyamini, naMikhaya, na-Eliyoyenayi, naZakhariya, naHananiya baphetse emacilongo abo, 42kanye naboMaseya, naShemaya, na-Eleyazare, na-Uzi, naJehohanani, naMalkhiya, na-Elamu, na-Ezeri. Lamakwaya abehlatjeleliswa ngumholi wawo, Jezrahiya.

43Ngalelo langa banikela ngalemikhulu imihlatjelo bajabula, ngobe Nkulunkulu abebentele injabulo lenkhulu. Bafati nebantfwana nabo bajabula. Umsindvo wekujabula lowawuseJerusalema wawungevakala khashane kakhulu.

abemnikete lenkhulu indlu leyayikadze iyingungu yeminikelo yalokutinhlavu, neyemphepho, neyetintfo tasethempelini, neyekwelishumi kwalokutinhlavu, neyekweliwayini lelisha, neyekwemafutsa labekabelwe emaLevi, nebahlabeli, nabomahlalesangweni kanye naloko lokwakuletselwa baphristi.

6Kodvwa ngaleso sikhatsi kwenteka konkhe loko mine ngangingekho eJerusalema, ngobe ngemnyaka wema-32 wekubusa kwa-Athazeksesi, inkhosi yaseBhabhulona, ngase ngibuyele enkhosini. Emvakwesikhatsi ngacela kuyo imvume, 7ngabuyela eJerusalema, lapho ngafike ngatfola ngebubi lobabentiwe ngu-Eliyashibi ngekutsi anikete Thobiya likamelo lelalisekhatsi etibuyeni tendlu yaNkulunkulu wetfu. 8Loko kwangenta ngatfukutsela ngadzimate ngatsatsa tonkhe timphahla tasendlini yaThobiya ngatijikijela ngaphandle kwalelikamelo. 9Ngase ngitsi akuhlanjululwe lamakamelo, emvakwaloko-ke ngase ngibuyisela letimphahla tasendlini yaNkulunkulu kanye naleyo minikelo yalokutinhlavu nemphepho.

Ngalawo malanga ngabona emadvodza akaJuda agcobagcoba litje lekuhlutela emagelebisi ngelilanga leliSabatha, bangenisa lokutinhlavu bakwetjatsisa timbongolo, batetfwesa neliwayini, nemagelebisi, nemakhiwa, nayo yonkhe nje leminye imitfwalo. Konkhe loko babekumikisa eJerusalema kuliSabatha. Ngako ngabadvonsa ngendlebe kutsi bangabokutsengisa kudla ngelilanga leliSabatha. 16Emadvodza aseThire labehlala eJerusalema abeletsa tinhlanti nako konkhe lokutsengwa kutsengiswe, atewutsengisela emaJuda, eJerusalema ngeliSabatha. 17Ngako ngabatsetsisa baholi bakaJuda, ngatsi: “Yini lamanyala leniwentako, ekona liSabatha? 18Abazange benta njalo yini bona boyihlomkhulu, kuze Nkulunkulu wetfu asehlisele yonkhe lenhlekelele leyaze yehlela nalelidolobha letfu? Nyalo nine seniphindze nichukuluta lulaka lolukhulu kutsi lwehlele ema-Israyeli ngalokona liSabatha.”

19Kwatsi nase limatfunti emasangweni aseJerusalema kutawusa kube liSabatha, ngatsi akuvalwe yonkhe iminyango ingavulwa kuze kube ngusekupheleni kweliSabatha. Ngamisa lamanye emadvodza akami emasangweni kuze kungabikho umtfwalo longenako ngelilanga leliSabatha. 20Kwaze kwaba kanye nakabili, solomane batsengi nebatsengisi bato tonkhe tinhlobonhlobo talokutsengiswako bavalelwa ngephandle kweJerusalema, balale khona busuku bonkhe. 21Kodvwa noko ngabayala ngatsi: “Nilalelani busuku bonkhe lapha ngephandle kwelubondza? Naniphindza nikwenta loko, ngitawugcina senginiphetse ngetandla.” Kusukela ngalelo langa abazange baphindze babuye kutewutsengisa ngeliSabatha. 22Ngase ngitjela emaLevi kutsi akatihlambulule ahambe ayewuciza emasango, kuze agcine liSabatha lingcwele.

Nangenca yaloko ngikhumbule, Nkulunkulu wami, ungihawukele njengekwelutsandvo lwakho lolukhulu.

23Ngetulu kwaloko, kulawo malanga ngabona emadvodza akaJuda labeteke bafati base-Ashdodi, nebaka-Amoni, nebakaMowabi. 24Incenye yebantfwababo yayikhuluma lulwimi lwase-Ashdodi, nome-ke lwaletinye taleto tive bangakwati sanhlobo nje kukhuluma siJuda. 25
