Umqondiso ngomshumayeli ohamba ze

201Ingqwayi-ngqwayi yomkhosi waseAsiriya yagunyaziswa nguSargon ukumkani wakhona, yaza yahlasela isixeko samaFilistiya iAshdode, yasithimba. 2Ngelo xesha *uNdikhoyo wayalela uIsaya unyana ka-Amozi, wathi: “Zikhulule iimpahla ozinxibileyo zokuzila, ndawonye neembadada zakho.” Ngokwenene ke wawuthobela loo myalelo, waza wahamba ze.

3Waza ke uNdikhoyo wathi: “Kakade isicaka sam uIsaya besisoloko sijikeleza sizé, singenazo nambadada, yonke le minyaka mithathu. Lowo ke ngumqondiso wento eya kwehlela iJiputa neKushe. 4Ukumkani waseAsiriya uya kubanxula bezé abathinjwa ababambe kwezo zizwe zozibini. Ewe, abadala nabanci baya kubhadaza ngeenyawo, bambethe ingubo yesele – nto leyo iya kuzisela iJiputa ishwangusha. 5Abo bathembele ngeKushe nabo baqhayisa ngeJiputa baya kuphoxeka badideke. 6Ngelo thuba ke abemi bommandla wonxweme lwaseFilistiya baya kuthi: ‘Niyayibona ke into eyehlele aba bantu besithembe ukukhuselwa ngabo kukumkani waseAsiriya! Kodwa kodwa siya kusinda njani?’ ”
