Isaiah 7

Ilizwi likaIsaya kuAhazi

1 Kwasekusithi ensukwini zikaAhazi indodana kaJothamu, indodana kaUziya inkosi yakoJuda, uRezini inkosi yeSiriya kanye loPheka indodana kaRemaliya inkosi yakoIsrayeli wenyukela eJerusalema ukuya empini emelene layo, kodwa kabangalakho ukulwa layo. 2Kwasekubikwa endlini kaDavida ukuthi iSiriya ihlangene loEfrayimi; inhliziyo yakhe lenhliziyo yabantu bakhe zasezinyikinyeka njengezihlahla zegusu zinyikinywa ngumoya. 3I Nkosi yasisithi kuIsaya: Ake uphume uyehlangabeza uAhazi, wena loSheyari-Yashubi indodana yakho, ekucineni komfolo wechibi elingaphezulu, emgwaqweni omkhulu wensimu yomwatshi, 4uthi kuye: Nanzelela, uthule, ungesabi, lenhliziyo yakho ingabi buthakathaka ngenxa yemisila emibili yalezizikhuni ezithunqayo, ngenxa yokuvutha kolaka lukaRezini leSiriya, lendodana kaRemaliya. 5Ngenxa yokuthi iSiriya, uEfrayimi, lendodana kaRemaliya, bacebise okubi ngawe, besithi: 6Asenyukele koJuda, simesabise, sizifohlelele kuye, sibeke inkosi kuye, indodana kaTabeyeli.

7Itsho njalo iNkosi uJehova: Kakuyikuma, njalo kakuyikwenzeka. 8Ngoba inhloko yeSiriya yiDamaseko, lenhloko yeDamaseko nguRezini; laphakathi kuseleminyaka engamatshumi ayisithupha lanhlanu uEfrayimi uzakwephulwa, angabi yisizwe. 9Njalo inhloko kaEfrayimi yiSamariya, lenhloko yeSamariya yindodana kaRemaliya. Uba lingakholwa, isibili kaliyikuqiniswa.

Ilizwi likaIsaya ngoEmanuweli

10I Nkosi yasiqhubeka ikhuluma kuAhazi isithi: 11Zicelele isibonakaliso e Nkosini uNkulunkulu wakho; cela ekujuleni loba ekuphakameni phezulu. 12Kodwa uAhazi wathi: Kangiyikucela, kangiyikulinga i Nkosi. 13Wasesithi: Zwana-ke, ndlu kaDavida; kuyinto encinyane kakhulu kuwe yini ukuthi udinise abantu, ukuthi udinise loNkulunkulu wami? 14Ngakho iNkosi uqobo izalinika isibonakaliso: Khangela, intombi emsulwa izathatha isisu, ibelethe indodana, ibize ibizo layo ngokuthi nguEmanuweli. 15Uzakudla amasi loluju, ukuze azi ukwala okubi lokukhetha okuhle. 16Ngoba umntwana engakakwazi ukwala okubi lokukhetha okuhle, ilizwe onengwa yilo lizatshiywa ngamakhosi alo amabili.

17I Nkosi izaletha phezu kwakho laphezu kwabantu bakho laphezu kwendlu kayihlo insuku ezazingezanga kusukela esukwini uEfrayimi asuka ngalo koJuda; yinkosi yeAsiriya. 18Kuzakuthi-ke ngalolosuku i Nkosi ithi ssss empukaneni isephethelweni lwemifula yeGibhithe, lenyosini eselizweni leAsiriya. 19Zizakuza-ke, ziphumule zonke ezigodini zamawa, lemifantwini yamadwala, lezihlahleni zonke zameva, lemadlelweni wonke. 20Ngalolosuku iNkosi izaphuca ngensingo eyebolekwe, phetsheya komfula, yinkosi yeAsiriya, ikhanda loboya bezinyawo, futhi ihluthune lendevu. 21Kuzakuthi-ke ngalolosuku umuntu uzagcina kuphila ithokazi lezimvu ezimbili; 22kuzakuthi-ke ngenxa yobunengi kochago ezilwehlisayo adle amasi; yebo, wonke oseleyo phakathi kwelizwe uzakudla amasi loluju. 23Kuzakuthi-ke ngalolosuku, yonke indawo lapho okwakukhona amavini ayinkulungwane ngenhlamvu zesiliva eziyinkulungwane, kube ngokwameva lokhula oluhlabayo. 24Bazakuya khona ngemitshoko langedandili, ngoba ilizwe lonke lizakuba ngameva lokhula oluhlabayo. 25Lazo zonke izintaba ezazilinywa ngekhuba kabayikuya kuzo ngokwesaba ameva lokhula oluhlabayo; kodwa kuzakuba ngokokungenisa inkabi lokokunyathelwa yizimvu.
