18Emva kwakho konke lokho uJehova wamshaya ezibilinini zakhe ngesifo esingenakwelashwa. 19

16UJehoyada wenza isivumelwano phakathi kwakhe nabantu bonke nenkosi ukuba babe ngabantu bakaJehova. 17Bonke abantu baya endlini kaBali, bayibhidliza, baphahlaza ama-altare akhe nezithombe zakhe, babulala uMathani umpristi kaBali phambi kwama-altare.
