Isivumelwano sikaNkulunkulu loDavida

Kwasekusithi lapho inkosi yayihlezi endlini yayo, le Nkosi isiyiphumuzile inhlangothi zonke ezitheni zayo zonke a , inkosi yathi kuNathani umprofethi b : Akubone, mina ngihlala endlini yemisedari c , kodwa umtshokotsho kaNkulunkulu uhlala phakathi kwamakhetheni d . UNathani wasesithi enkosini: Hamba wenze konke okusenhliziyweni yakho, ngoba i Nkosi ilawe e .

Kodwa kwathi ngalobobusuku, ilizwi le Nkosi lafika kuNathani lisithi: Hamba uthi encekwini yami, kuDavida: Itsho njalo i Nkosi: Wena uzangakhela yini indlu ukuze ngihlale kiyo f ? Ngoba kangizange ngihlale endlini kusukela esukwini engenyusa ngalo abantwana bakoIsrayeli eGibhithe kuze kube lamuhla g , kodwa bengihamba ethenteni lethabhanekeleni h . Kuzo zonke izindawo engihambe kuzo labo bonke abantwana bakoIsrayeli, ngake ngakhuluma ilizwi yini kwesinye sezizwe zakoIsrayeli i , engasilaya ukwelusa abantu bami uIsrayeli ngisithi j : Kungani lingangakhelanga indlu yemisedari? Ngakho-ke uzakutsho njalo encekwini yami, kuDavida, uthi: Itsho njalo i Nkosi yamabandla: Mina ngakuthatha k  esibayeni sezimvu, ekulandeleni izimvu, ukuba ngumbusi phezu kwabantu bami, phezu kukaIsrayeli l ; ngangilawe loba ngaphi lapho oya khona, ngaquma zonke izitha zakho ngaphambi kwakho m ; ngakwenzela ibizo elikhulu njengebizo labakhulu abasemhlabeni n . 10 Njalo ngizabamisela indawo abantu bami uIsrayeli, ngibagxumeke ukuze bahlale endaweni yabo o , bangabe besanyikinyeka p ; labantwana benkohlakalo kabasayikubahlupha, njengakuqala, 11 njalo kusukela esukwini engalaya ngalo abahluleli phezu kwabantu bami uIsrayeli q ; ngikuphumuze ezitheni zakho zonke r . Futhi i Nkosi iyakutshela ukuthi i Nkosi izakwenzela indlu s .

12 Lapho insuku zakho sezigcwalisekile t , usulele laboyihlo u , ngizamisa inzalo yakho emva kwakho, ezaphuma emibilini yakho, ngiqinise umbuso wayo v . 13 Yona izakwakhela ibizo lami indlu w ; njalo ngizaqinisa isihlalo sobukhosi sombuso wayo kuze kube nininini x . 14 Mina ngizakuba nguyise, layo ibe yindodana yami y ; ezakuthi uba isenza okubi, ngizayijezisa ngentonga yabantu, langemivimvinya yabantwana babantu z . 15 Kodwa umusa wami kawuyikusuka kiyo njengalokho ngawususa kuSawuli engamsusa ngaphambi kwakho aa . 16 Lendlu yakho lombuso wakho kuzaqiniswa kuze kube nininini phambi kwami; isihlalo sakho sobukhosi sizaqiniswa kuze kube nininini ab . 17 Njengokwalamazwi wonke lanjengokwalo wonke lo umbono, ngokunjalo uNathani wakhuluma kuDavida ac .

18 Yasingena inkosi uDavida, yahlala phambi kwe Nkosi, yathi: Ngingubani mina, Nkosi Jehova, lendlu yami iyini, ukuthi ungifikise kuze kube lapha ad ? 19 Kanti lokhu kusekuncinyane emehlweni akho, Nkosi Jehova; usukhulumile futhi ngendlu yenceku yakho ngokwesikhathi esikhatshana; lalokhu yindlela yabantu, Nkosi Jehova ae . 20 Pho, uDavida angabe esengezelela ngokuthini kuwe? Ngoba wena uyayazi inceku yakho, Nkosi Jehova af . 21 Ngenxa yelizwi lakho lanjengokwenhliziyo yakho wenzile zonke lezizinto ezinkulu ukuze uzazise inceku yakho. 22 Ngakho umkhulu, Nkosi Jehova ag ; ngoba kakho onjengawe, njalo kakho uNkulunkulu ngaphandle kwakho ah , njengakho konke esikuzwileyo ngendlebe zethu. 23 Yisiphi-ke isizwe esisodwa emhlabeni esinjengabantu bakho, njengoIsrayeli, uNkulunkulu owaya ukuzihlengela sona ukuba ngabantu ai , njalo wazenzela ibizo, walenzela izinto ezinkulu lezesabekayo aj , kusenzelwa ilizwe lakho, phambi kwabantu bakho, owazihlengela bona eGibhithe, ezizweni lakubonkulunkulu bazo ak ? 24 Wasuziqinisela abantu bakho uIsrayeli ukuze babe ngabantu kuwe kuze kube nininini; lawe  Nkosi usube nguNkulunkulu wabo al . 25 Khathesi-ke,  Nkosi Nkulunkulu, ilizwi olikhulume ngenceku yakho langendlu yayo liqinise kuze kube nininini, wenze njengokukhuluma kwakho am . 26 Njalo kalibe likhulu ibizo lakho kuze kube nininini, kuthiwe: I Nkosi yamabandla inguNkulunkulu phezu kukaIsrayeli; lendlu yenceku yakho uDavida imiswe phambi kwakho. 27 Ngoba wena,  Nkosi yamabandla, Nkulunkulu kaIsrayeli, wembule endlebeni yenceku yakho, usithi: Ngizakwakhela indlu. Ngakho inceku yakho ithole enhliziyweni yayo ukuthi ikhuleke lumkhuleko kuwe an . 28 Khathesi-ke, Nkosi Jehova, wena ungulowoNkulunkulu, lamazwi akho aliqiniso; ukhulume encekwini yakho lokhu okuhle. 29 Ngakho-ke akuvume ubusise indlu yenceku yakho ukuze ibe phambi kwakho kuze kube nininini; ngoba wena, Nkosi Jehova, ukhulumile; langesibusiso sakho indlu yenceku yakho izabusiswa kuze kube nininini ao .
