4Kwathi inkosi isizwile izwi lalowo muntu kaNkulunkulu alibiza ngalo i-altare laseBethele, uJerobowamu waselula isandla sakhe ese-altare, wathi: “Mbambeni.” Kepha isandla sakhe aselulela kuye sashwabana, akaba namandla okusibuyisela kuye. 5I-altare ladabuka, umlotha we-altare wachitheka e-altare njengesiboniso asinikile lowo muntu kaNkulunkulu ngezwi likaJehova.

11Kwakuhlala eBethele umprofethi omdala. Amadodana akhe afika amtshela yonke imisebenzi lowo muntu kaNkulunkulu abeyenzile ngalolo suku eBethele, namazwi abewakhulumile enkosini. Uyise esetsheliwe, 12uyise wathi kuwo: “Uhambe ngayiphi indlela na?” Amadodana ayebonile ukuthi uhambe ngayiphi indlela lowo muntu kaNkulunkulu owavela kwaJuda. 13Wayesethi kumadodana akhe: “Ngibopheleni imbongolo.” Ambophela-ke imbongolo, wayikhwela. 14Wamlandela lowo muntu kaNkulunkulu, wamfumana ehlezi phansi kwe-oki;* wathi kuye: “Wena ungumuntu kaNkulunkulu lowo owavela kwaJuda na?”

Wathi: “Nginguye.”

15Wayesethi kuye: “Woza siye ekhaya, uthole ukudla.”

16Kepha wathi: “Anginakubuya nawe, anginakungena kwakho nawe; futhi anginakudla isinkwa, ngiphuze amanzi nawe kuleyo ndawo, 17ngokuba kwathiwa kimi ngezwi likaJehova: ‘Awuyikudla sinkwa, ungaphuzi manzi khona, ungabuyi ngendlela oze ngayo.’ ”

18Wayesethi kuye: “Nami ngingumprofethi njengawe; kwakhuluma kimi ingelosi ngezwi likaJehova ngokuthi: ‘Mbuyise, uye naye endlini yakho ukuba athole ukudla, aphuze amanzi.’ ” Kodwa waqamba amanga kuye. 19Wayesebuya-ke naye, wadla endlini yakhe, waphuza amanzi.

20Kwathi besahlezi etafuleni, izwi likaJehova lafika kumprofethi owambuyisa; 21wamemeza kulowo muntu kaNkulunkulu owavela kwaJuda, wathi: “Usho kanje uJehova, uthi: ‘Njengokuba ungalilalelanga izwi likaJehova, ungagcinanga umyalo uJehova uNkulunkulu wakho akuyala ngawo, 22kepha ubuyile, wadla, waphuza amanzi endaweni athi ngayo kuwe ungadli sinkwa, ungaphuzi manzi, isidumbu sakho asiyikungeniswa ethuneni lawoyihlo.’ ”

23Kwathi esedlile, esephuzile, wambophelela imbongolo yena lowo mprofethi abembuyisile. 24

26Esezwile lokho umprofethi obembuyisile endlelni wathi: “Ngumuntu kaNkulunkulu lowo owayengalaleli izwi likaJehova; ngalokho uJehova umnikele kuyo ingonyama, yamdwengula; yambulala njengezwi likaJehova alikhuluma kuye.”

27Wayesekhuluma kumadodana akhe, ethi: “Ngibopheleleni imbongolo.” Ayibophela. 28Wahamba, wafumana isidumbu sakhe sintshingwe endleleni, imbongolo nengonyama zimi eceleni kwesidumbu; ingonyama ayidlanga isidumbu, ayidwengulanga nembongolo. 29Umprofethi wasiphakamisa isidumbu salowo muntu kaNkulunkulu, wasibeka embongolweni, wasibuyisa; wafika emzini womprofethi omdala ukuba alile, ammbele. 30

14:4
1 Sam. 4:15
UmkaJerobowamu wenze njalo; wasuka, waya eShilo, wafika endlini ka-Ahiya.

U-Ahiya wayengenakubona, ngokuba amehlo akhe ayequndekile ngenxa yobudala bakhe. 5UJehova wayeshilo ku-Ahiya, ethi: “Bheka, umkaJerobowamu uyeza ukubuza kuwe ngendodana yakhe, ngokuba iyagula; womphendula ngokuthi nangokuthi, ngokuba kuyakuthi ekungeneni kwakhe azishaye omunye umuntu.”

6Kwathi lapho u-Ahiya ezwa izigqi zezinyawo zakhe ekungeneni kwakhe emnyango, wathi: “Ngena, mkaJerobowamu; uzishayelani omunye; mina ngithunyiwe kuwe nginendaba elukhuni. 7Hamba umtshele uJerobowamu ukuthi: ‘UJehova uNkulunkulu ka-Israyeli usho kanje, uthi: Njengokuba ngakuphakamisa phakathi kwabantu, ngakubeka ube ngumbusi wabantu bami u-Israyeli, 8

bheka, ngalokho ngiyakwehlisela indlu kaJerobowamu okubi, nginqume kuJerobowamu wonke umlisa, omncane nomkhulu kwa-Israyeli, ngikhukhule indlu kaJerobowamu njengokukhukhulwa komquba, uze uphele. 11Yena wakwaJerobowamu ofela emzini uyakudliwa yizinja, nofela endle uyakudliwa yizinyoni zezulu, ngokuba uJehova ukukhulumile.’

12“Ngalokho suka uye endlini yakho; ekungeneni kwezinyawo zakho emzini uyakufa umntwana. 13Wonke u-Israyeli uyakumlilela, ammbele, ngokuba nguyena yedwa wakwaJerobowamu oyakuya ethuneni, lokhu kufunyanwa kuye okuhle kuJehova uNkulunkulu ka-Israyeli endlini kaJerobowamu.

14“Futhi uJehova uyakuzivusela inkosi phezu kuka-Israyeli eyakunquma indlu kaJerobowamu ngalolo suku. Kepha ngithini? Yebo, namanje. 15

14:15
2 AmaKh. 17:18,23
Ngokuba uJehova uyakushaya u-Israyeli njengohlanga oluzanyazanyiswa emanzini, asiphule u-Israyeli kuleli zwe elihle alinika oyise, abahlakazele ngaphesheya koMfula,* lokhu benzile o-Ashera* babo, bathukuthelisa uJehova. 16
14:16
1 AmaKh. 12:28
Uyakulahla u-Israyeli ngenxa yezono zikaJerobowamu one ngazo, futhi onisa ngazo u-Israyeli.”

17UmkaJerobowamu wayesesuka wahamba, wafika eTirisa; esefike embundwini wendlu, umntwana wafa. 18Wonke u-Israyeli wammbela, wamlilela njengezwi likaJehova alikhulumayo ngesandla senceku yakhe u-Ahiya umprofethi.
