Khosi ya Muaba i tshi vhidzisa Biliamu

221Vhaisraele vha fhirela phanḓa vha ṱoka mishasha midavhini ya Muaba vhubvaḓuvha ha Jorodani, u livhana na Jerikho. 2Musi khosi ya Muaba, Balaka ṅwana wa Tsiphoro, a tshi pfa zwe Vhaisraele vha ita Vhaamori, 3na uri Vhaisraele vho vha vhe vhangana, ene na vhathu vhawe vhoṱhe vha farwa nga nyofho. 4Vhamuaba vha vhudza vhahulwane vha Vhamidiani vha ri, “Gogo heḽi ḽi ḓo ṱuwa ḽi tshi lozwa zwoṱhe zwo ri tangaho, unga phulu i tshi fula hatsi ḓakani.” Khosi ya Muaba misi iyo o vha e Balaka ṅwana wa Tsiphoro. 5Ene a ruma vhaḓinḓa u yo vhidza Biliamu ṅwana wa Bioro, we a vha e Phethoro tsini ha mulambo wa Yufuratha shangoni ḽa Amawa. Vha mu swikisela malaedzwa a no bva kha Balaka a no ri, “Nga vha zwi ḓivhe uri ho ḓa lushaka lu tshi bva Egipita, vhathu vhalwo vha khou ḓala hoṱhe-hoṱhe, vho no ṱoka mishasha masakhani anga. 6Vho anda u fhira riṋe, nga vha ḓe vha nteketelele vhone.

9Mudzimu a ḓa ha Biliamu a mu vhudzisa a ri, “Vhanna avha vha no khou dzula na iwe ndi vhonnyi?”

10Biliamu a fhindula a ri, “Balaka khosi ya Muaba, ṅwana wa Tsiphoro, o vha ruma ha nṋe 11a ri hu na lushaka lu no bva Egipita lwo ḓadzaho shango ḽoṱhe. U ṱoḓa ndi tshi mu teketelela vhone uri a lwe navho, a vha thathe vha ṱuwe.”

11Ndi hone Balaka a tshi vhudza Biliamu a ri, “Vho nnyitani? Ndo vha ḓisa fhano uri vha teketele maswina anga, hone tshe vhone vha ita ho vha u vha shudufhadza.”

12Biliamu a fhindula a ri, “Ndi amba zwenezwo fhedzi zwine nda vhudzwa nga Yahavee.”

Vhuporofita ha Biliamu ha vhuvhili

13Ndi hone Balaka a tshi vhudza Biliamu a ri, “Nga ri ṱuwe roṱhe ri ye huṅwe fhethu hune vha nga kona u vhona Vhaisraele vhoṱhe, ngauri fhano vha tou vhona vhaṅwenyana, a vha vha vhoni vhoṱhe.

Na henefho a fhaṱa aḽiṱari ṱhanu na mbili, a ṋekedza tshiṱhavhelo tsha mboho na thutha kha aḽiṱari iṅwe na iṅwe.

15Biliamu a amba na Balaka a ri, “Nga vha ime hafha tsini ha tshiṱhavhelo tshavho, nṋe ndi yo ṱangana na Mudzimu hafhaḽaa.”

26Biliamu a fhindula a ri, “A tho ngo vha vhudza uri ndo fanela u ita zwoṱhe zwine Yahavee a amba?”

Vhuporofita ha Biliamu ha vhuraru

27Balaka a vhudza Biliamu a ri, “Nga vha ḓe ndi vha ise huṅwe fhethu. Khamusi Mudzimu u ḓo zwi takalela uri vha nteketelele vhone vhe henefho.” 28Balaka a dzhia Biliamu a mu isa muṱumbani wa thavha ya Phioro, yo ingamelaho phanga. 29Biliamu a mu vhudza a ri, “Nga vha mphaṱele aḽiṱari ṱhanu na mbili henefhano, vha nnḓisele mboho ṱhanu na mbili na thutha ṱhanu na mbili.” 30Balaka a ita zwe Biliamu a amba, a ṋekedza tshiṱhavhelo tsha mboho na thutha kha aḽiṱari iṅwe na iṅwe.
