Muporofita Mikhaya a tshi kaidza Ahaba

(1 Mah. 22:1-28)

181Zwino Josafati khosi ya Juda a vha na lupfumo luhulu, a tou vha na bvumo, a dzetshelana na nnḓu ya Ahaba khosi ya Israele. 2Hó no fhela miṅwahanyana Josafati a takuwa a yo dalela Ahaba muḓini wa Samaria. Ahaba a mu ṱhavhela nngu nnzhi na kholomo, a ṱhavhela na vhathu vhe a ḓa navho, a mu kunga uri a yo dia muḓi wa Ramotho kha ḽa Giliadi. 3Ahaba khosi ya Israele a humbela Josafati khosi ya Juda a ri, “Vha nga ṱuwa na nṋe ra yo dia muḓi wa Ramotho kha ḽa Giliadi naa?”

Josafati a fhindula a ri, “Nṋe na vhone ri tshithu tshithihi, vhathu vhanga ndi vhathu vhavho, ri ḓo baḓekana navho nndwani.” 4Huno Josafati a dovha a vhudza khosi ya Israele a ri, “Nga vha range u vhudzisa Muṋe washu.”

5Ndi hone khosi ya Israele i tshi kuvhanganya vhaporofita vha 400 ya vha vhudzisa ya ri, “Ri bve pfumo ri yo lwa na muḓi wa Ramotho kha ḽa Giliadi kana ri litshe?”

Vhone vha fhindula vha ri, “Nga vha ye, Mudzimu u ḓo kumedza uyo muḓi zwanḓani zwavho.”

6Hone Josafati a vhudzisa a ri, “A hu tshee na muṅwe muporofita wa Muṋe washu fhano ane a nga ri vhudzisela?”

7Khosi ya Israele ya fhindula Josafati ya ri, “Hu kha ḓi vha na munna muthihi ane a nga ri vhudzisela ha Muṋe washu, hone ndi a mu vhenga ngauri ha vhuyi a porofita zwivhuya nga nṋe, zwi sokou vha zwa khombo misi yoṱhe. Ndi Mikhaya ṅwana wa Imila.”

Josafati a fhindula a ri, “Thovhele vha songo ralo.”

8Ndi hone khosi ya Israele i tshi vhidza muṅwe wa vhaḓinḓa vhayo ya ri, “Ṱavhanyani ni ḓe na Mikhaya ṅwana wa Imila.”

9Khosi ya Israele na Josafati khosi ya Juda vho vha vho ambara phuraphura dzavho dza vhuhosi, vho dzula kha khuluṋoni dzavho, luvhatani lwa u fhulela, tsini ha gethe ya khoro ya Samaria, vhaporofita vhoṱhe vha tshi khou porofita henefho phanḓa havho. 10Zwino muṅwe wavho, Tsedekia ṅwana wa Khenaana, o vha o ita ṋanga dza tsimbi, a ḓivhadza a ri, “Muṋe washu u ri, ‘U ḓo runga Vhaaramu nga ṋanga hedzi wa vhuya wa vha lozwa.’ ” 11Vhaporofita vhaṅwe vhoṱhe vho vha vha tshi khou ḓi porofita zwenezwo, vha tshi ri, “Nga vha yo dia muḓi wa Ramotho kha ḽa Giliadi, vha ḓo kunda, ngauri Muṋe washu u ḓo u kumedza zwanḓani zwavho.”

12Muḓinḓa we a vha o ruṅwa u yo vhidza Mikhaya a mu vhudza a ri, “Nga vha vhone, vhaporofita vhaṅwe vhoṱhe vha khou amba ḽithihi, vha ri khosi zwi ḓo i nakela, na vhone vha ambe zwithihi navho, zwi takadzaho.”

13Huno Mikhaya a ri, “Nga Muṋe washu a tshilaho, ndi ḓo mu vhudza zwenezwo zwine Mudzimu wanga a mmbudza.”

14Musi a tshi swika, khosi ya mu vhudzisa ya ri, “Mikhaya, ri bve pfumo ri yo dia muḓi wa Ramotho kha ḽa Giliadi, kana ri songo ya?”

Mikhaya a fhindula a ri, “Nga vha ye, vha ḓo kunda, ngauri avho vhathu vha ḓo kumedzwa zwanḓani zwavho.”

15Khosi ya mu vhudza ya ri, “Ndi ḓo vha anisa lungana nga dzina ḽa Muṋe washu uri vha mmbudze ngoho?”

16Ndi hone Mikhaya a tshi fhindula a ri, “Ndo vhona Vhaisraele vhoṱhe vho balangana zwikwarani vha tshi nga nngu dzi si na mulisa, Muṋe washu a ri, ‘Vhathu havha a vha na muṋe wavho. Nndwa yo fhela, nga vha humele hayani.’ ”

17Khosi ya Israele ya vhudza Josafati ya ri, “A tho ngo vha vhudza uri ha vhuyi a porofita zwivhuya nga nṋe, u porofita zwa khombo fhedzi?”

18Mikhaya a dovha a ri, “Zwino nga vha thetshelese zwine Muṋe washu a amba! Ndo vhona Muṋe washu o dzula kha khuluṋoni yawe e na mara oṱhe o ima thungo ya tshauḽa tshawe na tshamonde. 19Muṋe washu a ri, ‘Ndi nnyi ane a nga fhura Ahaba khosi ya Israele a yo dia muḓi wa Ramotho kha ḽa Giliadi, a yo fela henengei?’ Muṅwe a amba tshino, muṅwe a amba tshiḽa. 20Muṅwe muya wa fhedza nga u ḓa wa ima phanḓa ha Muṋe washu wa ri, ‘Nṋe ndi ḓo mu fhura.’ Muṋe washu a vhudzisa a ri, ‘U ḓo mu fhura hani?’ 21Muya wa fhindula wa ri, ‘Ndi ḓo bva nda vha muya wa mazwifhi milomoni ya vhaporofita vhoṱhe.’ Muṋe washu a ri, ‘Tshimbila u yo mu fhura, u ḓo zwi kona.’

22“Zwino Muṋe washu o ita uri vhaporofita havha vhavho vha vha zwifhele. Muṋe washu o itela uri vha welwe nga khombo.”

23Ndi hone Tsedekia ṅwana wa Khenaana a tshi takuwa a ya kha Mikhaya a mu vhanda luṱaha, a mu vhudzisa a ri, “Zwo ḓa hani Muya wa Muṋe washu a tshi bva kha nṋe a ḓa u amba na inwi?”

24Mikhaya a fhindula a ri, “Izwo ni ḓo zwi ḓivha musi une na yo dzumbama ni tshi bva kamarani iṅwe na shavhela kha iṅwe.”

25Khosi ya Israele zwenezwo ya bvisa ndaela ya ri, “Dzhiani Mikhaya ni mu vhuedzedze ha Amoni mulangi wa muḓi na ha Juasi ṅwana wa khosi, 26ni swike ni ri, ‘Khosi i ri: Hoṋelani muthu hoyu dzhele, ni mu fhe vhurotho vhuṱuku na maḓi fhedzi u swika ndi tshi vhuya ndo takala ndi songo huvhala.’ ”

27Mikhaya a ḓivhadza a ri, “Arali vha vhuya vha tshi tshila, izwo Muṋe washu u ḓo vha a songo amba nga mulomo wanga.” Mikhaya a dovha a ri, “Inwi vhathu noṱhe, thetshelesani zwe nda amba!”

Lufu lwa Ahaba

(1 Mah. 22:29-35)

28Ndi hone Ahaba khosi ya Israele na Josafati khosi ya Juda vha tshi takuwa vha livha muḓini wa Ramotho kha ḽa Giliadi. 29Khosi ya Israele ya vhudza Josafati ya ri, “Nṋe ndi ḓo dzhena nndwani ndo ḓikhakhisa, vhone vha ambare zwiambaro zwavho zwa vhuhosi.” Ndi hone khosi ya Israele i tshi ḓikhakhisa, ya dzhena nndwani.

30Zwino khosi ya Aramu yo vha yo laya vhalangi vha gariki yayo ya ri, “Ni songo londa muthu na muthihi, a nga vha e muṱuku kana e muhulwane, ni londe khosi ya Israele fhedzi.” 31Musi vhalangi vha gariki vha tshi vhona khosi Josafati, vha ri, “Vhukuma uyu ndi ene khosi ya Israele.” Vha rembuluwa uri vha mu wele, hone Josafati a ṱavha mukosi, Muṋe washu a mu lamukisa. Mudzimu a ita uri vha mu ṱutshele. 32Musi vhalangi vha gariki vha tshi zwi vhona uri a si ene khosi ya Israele, vha litsha u mu pandamedza. 33Muṅwe a sokou posa musevhe wawe a sa londi a pfula khosi ya Israele he zwitsimbi zwa tshiambaro tshawe tsha nndwa zwa ṱanganywa hone. Khosi ya vhudza mutshimbidzi wa gariki ya ri, “Ndo huvhala, tshimbidzani gariki ni mmvise hafhano nndwani!” 34Nndwa ya lwiwa ḓuvha ḽoṱhe i tshi tou duga, khosi ya Israele ya ḓitika garikini yayo yo livhana na Vhaaramu ḽa vhuya ḽa kovhela. Ḽi tshi kovhela ya dzama.
