Dhavhidhi anorwira Keira, ndokundogara kurenje

1 Zvino vanhu vakaudza Dhavhidhi vakati, "Tarirai, vaFirisitia vanorwa neKeira, vachipambara zviri pamapuriro." 2Naizvozvo Dhavhidhi akabvunza Jehovha akati, "Ndoenda, ndinoparadza vaFirisitia avo here?" Jehovha akati kuna Dhavhidhi, "Enda undoparadza vaFirisitia, uponese Keira."

3Varume vaDhavhidhi vakati kwaari, "Tarirai, isu tinotya tichiri pano paJudha, ndoda kana tikaenda Keira kundorwa nehondo dzavaFirisitia." 4Zvino Dhavhidhi akabvunzazve Jehovha, Jehovha akamupindura akati, "Simuka, uburukire Keira, nokuti ndichaisa vaFirisitia muruoko rwako." 5Dhavhidhi navanhu vake vakaenda Keira, vakandorwa navaFirisitia, vakavatorera mombe dzavo, vakavauraya nokuuraya kukuru. Naizvozvo Dhavhidhi akaponesa vanhu vakanga vagere Keira.

6Zvino Abhiatari mwanakomana waAhimereki pakutizira kwake kuna Dhavhidhi paKeira, wakaenda akabata efodhi paruoko rwake.

7Sauro akaudzwa kuti Dhavhidhi wasvika Keira. Sauro akati, "Mwari wamuisa muruoko rwangu, wazaririrwamo zvaapinda muguta rinamasuo ezvipfigiso." 8Sauro akadana vanhu vose kundorwa, akaburukira Keira, akakomba Dhavhidhi navanhu vake.

9Asi Dhavhidhi wakaziva kuti Sauro wakafunga kumuitira zvakaipa, akati kuna Abhiatari mupirisiti, "Uya pano neefodhi." 10Zvino Dhavhidhi akati, "Jehovha, Mwari waIsiraeri, muranda wenyu wakanzwa zvirokwazvo kuti Sauro unoda kuuya Keira, kuzoparadza guta nokuda kwangu. 11Ko varume veKeira vachandiisa mumaoko ake here? Ko Sauro uchaburuka here, sezvakanzwa muranda wenyu? Jehovha, Mwari waIsiraeri, ndinokumbira muzivise henyu muranda wenyu." Jehovha akati, "Uchaburuka." 12Dhavhidhi akati, "Ko varume veKeira vachandiisa navanhu vangu muruoko rwaSauro here?" Jehovha akati, "Vachakuisa." 13Ipapo Dhavhidhi navanhu vake, vanenge mazana matanhatu, vakasimuka, vakabva Keira, vakafamba-famba havo. Sauro akaudzwa kuti Dhavhidhi wapukunyuka paKeira, akarega hake kuendako.

14Dhavhidhi akagara murenje munhare, akaramba agere panyika yamakomo murenje reZifi. Sauro akamutsvaka mazuva ose, Mwari haana kumuisa muruoko rwake. 15Zvino Dhavhidhi akaona kuti Sauro wakanga abuda kuzotsvaka kumuuraya, Dhavhidhi akagara murenje reZifi mudondo. 16Ipapo Jonatani mwanakomana waSauro, akasimuka, akaenda kuna Dhavhidhi mudondo, akamusimbisa muna Mwari. 17Akati kwaari, "Usatya, nokuti ruoko rwababa vangu Sauro harungakuwani, uchava mambo walsiraeri, neni ndichava muduku kwauri; nababa vangu Sauro vanozviziva."

18Ivo vaviri vakaita sungano pamberi paJehovha; Dhavhidhi akagara mudondo, Jonatani akadzokera kumba kwake.

19Zvino vaZifi vakakwira kuna Sauro paGibhiya vakati, "Ko Dhavhidhi haazinovanda kwatiri, panhare mudondo, mugomo reHakira riri kurutivi rwezasi rwerenje here?" 20Naizvozvo zvino, mambo burukai, sezvinoda moyo wenyu; kana tirisu ndiro basa redu kuti timuise pamaoko amambo.

21Ipapo Sauro akati, "Imi muropafadzwe naJehovha, nokuti makandinzwira tsitsi. 22Chiendai henyu, mucherekedze kwazvo, muzive nokuona kwaari, kwaanogara, uye kuti ndianiko wakamuonako; nokuti ndaudzwa kuti unamano kwazvo. 23Naizvozvo tarisisai, muzive zvakanaka nzvimbo dzake dzose dzaanovanda kwadziri, mugodzokerazve kwandiri, zvirokwazvo, ndiende nemi; zvino kana achinge ari munyika iyo, ndichandomutsvakisisa pakati pezviuru zvavaJudha. 24Ipapo vakasimuka, vakaenda Zifi pamberi paSauro, asi Dhavhidhi navanhu vake vakanga vari murenje reMaoni paArabha kurutivi rwezasi rwerenje." 25Zvino Sauro navanhu vake vakaenda kundomutsvaka. Dhavhidhi akaudzwa izvozvo; naizvozvo akaburukira kudombo, akandogara murenje reMaoni. Zvino Sauro wakati achinzwa, akatevera Dhavhidhi kurenje reMaoni. 26Sauro akaenda nechokuno kwegomo, Dhavhidhi navanhu vake vakaenda necheseri kwegomo; Dhavhidhi akakurumidza kubva, nokutya Sauro; nokuti Sauro navanhu vake vakanga vakomba Dhavhidhi navanhu vake, kuti vavabate.

27Asi nhume yakasvika kuna Sauro, ikati, "Kurumidzai, muuye, nokuti vaFirisitia vopambara nyika." 28Naizvozvo Sauro akadzoka pakutevera Dhavhidhi, akandorwa navaFirisitia. Naizvozvo vakapatumidza zita rokuti Serahamarekoti. 29Dhavhidhi akakwira, akabvapo, akandogara munhare dzapaEnigedhi.
