Shenakeribhi mambo weAsiria anokomba Jerusaremu, asi vaJudha vanorwirwa naJehovha

Shure kwezvinhu izvi, nokutendeka uku, Shenakeribhi mambo weAsiria akasvika akapinda kwaJudha, akadzika matende kuzorwa namaguta akakombwa namasvingo, achifunga kuzvikundira iwo. Zvino Hezekia akati achiona kuti Shenakeribhi asvika, uye kuti akanga achivavarira kurwa neJerusaremu, akarangana namachinda ake navarume vake vane simba, kuti vadzivire mvura yamatsime akanga ari kunze kweguta; ivo vakamubatsira. Naizvozvo vanhu vazhinji vakaungana, vakadzivira matsime ose norukova rwakanga ruchiyerera napakati penyika iyo, vachiti, "Madzimambo eAsiria achasvikireiko, akawana mvura zhinji?" lye akatsunga moyo, akavaka rusvingo rwose rwanga rwakoromoka, akaruvaka kusvikira pashongwe, norumwe rusvingo rwokunzewo, akasimbisa Miro paguta raDhavhidhi, akapfura nhumbi dzokurwa nadzo nenhovo zhinji. Akagadzawo vakuru vehondo pamusoro pavanhu, akavaunganidza kwaari padare pasuo reguta, akataura nounyoro navo, achiti,

"Ivai nesimba, mutsunge moyo, regai kutya kana kuvhunduka pamberi pamambo weAsiria, kana pamberi pavazhinji vose vaanavo; nokuti anesu mukuru kune waanaye iye; iye unoruoko rwenyama, asi anesu ndiJehovha Mwari wedu, kuzotibatsira nokurwa navavengi vedu." Vanhu vakavimba namashoko aHezekia mambo waJudha.

Shure kwaizvozvi Shenakeribhi mambo weAsiria akatuma varanda vake Jerusaremu, (zvino iye akanga ari pamberi peRakishi, ane hondo yake yose) kunavose vakanga vari Jerusaremu, akati,

10 "Zvanzi naShenakeribhi mambo weAsiria, `Chinyiko chamunovimba nacho, zvamunorambira paJerusaremu makakombwa?' 11 Ko Hezekia haazinokukurudzirai, kuti mugozofa nenzara nenyota here, zvaanoti, `Jehovha Mwari wedu achatirwira paruoko rwamambo weAsiria?' 12 Haazi iye Hezekia akabvisa matunhu ake akakwirira nearitari dzake, akaraira Judha neJerusaremu, achiti, `Munofanira kunamata pamberi pearitari imwe, uye munofanira kupisa zvinonhuwira ipapo here?' 13 Hamuzivi here zvatakaitira vanhu vose venyika ino, ini namadzibaba angu? Ko vamwari vendudzi dzenyika idzo vakatongagona kurwira nyika yavo paruoko rwangu here?

14 "Ndianiko pakati pavamwari vose vendudzi idzo dzakaparadzwa chose namadzibaba angu, wakatongogona kurwira vanhu vake paruoko rwangu here? Zvino Mwari wenyu achagona kukurwirai paruoko rwangu here? 15 Zvino naizvozvo Hezekia ngaarege kukunyengerai, kana kukukurudzirai nomutowo uyu; regai henyu kumutenda, nokuti hakuna mwari worudzi rupi norupi, kana ushe, wakagona kurwira vanhu vake paruoko rwangu naparuoko rwamadzibaba angu; zvikuru sei Mwari wenyu hangakoniwi kukurwirai paruoko rwangu here?"

16 Varanda vake vakawedzera kushora Jehovha Mwari nomuranda wake Hezekia. 17 Akanyorawo mwadhi yokudadira nayo Jehovha Mwari walsiraeri, nokumushora, achiti, "Vamwari vendudzi dzenyika idzo sezvavasina kurwira vanhu vavo paruoko rwangu, saizvozvowo Mwari waHezekia haangarwiri vanhu vake paruoko rwangu. " 18 Vakadanidzira nenzwi guru norurimi rwavaJudha kuvanhu veJerusaremu vakanga vari pamusoro porusvingo, kuvatyisa, nokuvavhundusa, kuti vagokunda guta. 19 Vakataura pamusoro paMwari weJerusaremu, vachimuenzanisa navamwari vavanhu venyika, vakaitwa namaoko avanhu.

20 Zvino mambo Hezekia nomuporofita Isaya mwanakomana waAmozi, vakanyengetera nokuda kwechinhu ichi, vakachemera kudenga.

21 Ipapo Jehovha akatuma mutumwa akaparadza vose vakanga vane simba noumhare, navatungamiriri, navakuru pamisasa yamambo weAsiria. Saka iye akadzokera kunyika yake achinyara. Zvino akati achipinda mumba mamwari wake, avo vakanga vabuda pachiuno chake vakamuurayirapo nomunondo.

22 Saizvozvo Jehovha akarwira Hezekia navakanga vagere Jerusaremu paruoko rwaShenakeribhi mambo weAsiria napamaoko avose, akavachengeta pamativi ose.

23 Vazhinji vakauya nezvipo kuna Jehovha paJerusaremu, nezvinhu zvinokosha kuna Hezekia mambo waJudha; naizvozvo kubva panguva iyo akakudzwa pamberi pendudzi dzose.

Kurwara kwaHezekia nokufa kwake

24 Zvino namazuva iwayo Hezekia akarwara, kusvikira pakufa; akanyengetera kuna Jehovha, iye akataura naye, akamupa chiratidzo. 25 Asi chinhu icho chakanaka chaakaitirwa, Hezekia haana kuchiripira zvakanaka, nokuti moyo wake akazvikudza, Jehovha akamutsamwira iye, naJudha neJerusaremu. 26 Asi Hezekia akazozvininipisa pamusoro pokuzvikudza kwomoyo wake, iye navakanga vagere Jerusaremu, saka kutsamwa kwaJehovha hakuna kuvavinga pamazuva aHezekia.

27 Hezekia akanga ane fuma zhinji nokukudzwa, akazviitira zvivigiro zvefuma yesirivha, neyendarama, neyezvibwe zvinokosha, neyezvinonhuhwira, neyenhovo, neyemidziyo yose yakanaka yamarudzi ose; 28 namatura ezviyo akawanda, nedzimba dzewaini, namafuta; namatanga ezvipfuwo zvamarudzi ose, nezvirugu zvamakwai. 29 Wakazviwanirawo maguta, nefuma yamakwai nemombe zhinji; nokuti Mwari akanga amupa fuma zhinji kwazvo. 30 Ndiye Hezekiawo akadzivira tsime rokumusoro remvura yeGihoni, akaifambisa ikarurama kurutivi rwamavirazuva rweguta raDhavhidhi. Hezekia akakunda pamabasa ake ose. 31 Asi pashoko renhume dzamachinda eBhabhironi, akatuma kwaari kuzomubvunza pamusoro pechishamiso chakanga chaitwa panyika, Mwari akamusiya kuti amuidze, kuti azive zvose zviri mumoyo make.

32 Zvino mamwe mabasa aHezekia, nezvakanaka zvaakabata, tarirai, zvakanyorwa pane zvakaonekwa nomuporofita Isaya mwanakomana waAmozi, mubhuku yamadzimambo aJudha naIsiraeri. 33 Hezekia akavata namadzibaba ake, vakamuviga kumukwidzwa unoenda kumarinda avanakomana vaDhavhidhi; vaJudha vose navakanga vagere Jerusaremu vakamukudza pakufa kwake. Mwanakomana wake Manase akamutevera paushe.
