Noupenyu hwangu," ndizvo zvinotaura Ishe Jehovha, "Hamungagoni kuzobata netsumo iyi pakati paIsiraeri. Tarirai, mweya yose ndeyangu; mweya wababa ndowangu, saizvozvo nomweya womwanakomanawo; mweya unotadza, uchafa. Asi kana munhu achinge akarurama, achiita zvomurayiro nezvakarurama, asina kudya pamakomo, kana kutarira nameso ake kuzvifananidzo zveimba yavaIsiraeri, kana kuchinyira mukadzi wowokwake, kana kuswedera kumukadzi ari kumwedzi kwake, asina kuitira vamwe zvakaipa, akadzosera rubatso rwake kuno wakatora chikwereti, asina kutora chinhu achipamba, akapa vane nzara zvokudya zvake, akafukidza akashama nenguvo; asina kuita mhindu, kana kutora mhindu yemichero, akadzora ruoko rwake pazvakaipa, akaruramisa kwazvo pamhaka yomunhu nehama yake, akafamba nemitemo yangu, akachengeta zvandakarayira, kuti aite zvamazvokwadi; iye akarurama, zvirokwazvo achararama," ndizvo zvinotaura Ishe Jehovha.

10 "Kana iye akabereka mwanakomana riri gororo, kana muteuri weropa, kana anoita chimwe chezvinhu izvi, 11 asingaiti chinhu chimwe chaizvozvo zvakanaka, akadya pamakomo, akachinyira mukadzi wowokwake, 12 akaitira varombo navanoshayiwa zvakaipa, akatora achipamba, asina kudzosera rubatso, akatarira zvifananidzo nameso ake, akaita zvinonyangadza, 13 akaita mhindu, kana kutora mhindu yemichero; ko iye achararama here? Haangararami. Akaita izvi zvose zvinonyangadza, zvirokwazvo achafa; ropa rake richava pamusoro pake.

14 "Zvino, tarira, kana akabereka mwanakomana, anoona zvivi zvose zvababa vake, zvavakaita, akazviona hake, akasaita zvakadai; 15 asina kudya pamakomo, kana kutarira nameso ake zvifananidzo zveimba yavalsiraeri, kana kuchinyira mukadzi wowokwake, 16 asina kuitira vamwe zvakaipa, asina kutora chinhu achireva rubatso, asina kutora chinhu achipamba, asi akapa vane nzara zvokudya zvake, nokufukidza akashama nechokufuka; 17 akadzora ruoko rwake pakuitira varombo zvakaipa, asina kutora mhindu kana mhindu yemichero, akaita zvandakarayira, nokufamba nemitemo yangu; iye haangafi nokuda kwezvakaipa zvababa vake, zvirokwazvo achararama. 18 Kana vari baba vake, zvavakamanikidza zvikuru, nokupamba zvinhu zvomunun’una wake, akaita zvisina kunaka pakati pavanhu vake, tarirai, iye achafa nokuda kwezvakaipa zvake.

19 "Asi imi munoti, `Mwanakomana anoregereiko kuva nemhosva yezvakaipa zvababa vake?' Kana mwanakomana achinge aita zvinorehwa nomurayiro nezvakarurama, akachengeta mitemo yangu yose, akaiita, zvirokwazvo achararama. 20 Munhu anotadza, ndiye achafa; mwanakomana haangavi nemhosva yezvakaipa zvababa vake, nababa havangavi nemhosva yezvakaipa zvomwanakomana wavo; kururama kwowakarurama kuchava pamusoro pake, nokuipa kwowakaipa kuchava pamusoro pake.

21 "Asi kana akaipa akatendeuka pazvivi zvake zvose zvaakaita, akachengeta mitemo yangu yose, akaita zvinorehwa nomurayiro nezvakarurama, zvirokwazvo achararama, haangafi. 22 Kudarika kwake kwose kwaakaita hakungarangarirwi pamusoro pake; achararama nokuda kwezvakarurama zvaakaita. 23 Ko ini ndingatongofarira rufu rwowakaipa here?" Ndizvo zvinotaura Ishe Jehovha; "Handizinofarira kudzoka kwake panzira yake, ararame here?

24 "Asi kana akarurama akatsauka pakururama kwake, akaita zvakaipa, akaita zvinonyangadza zvose zvinoitwa nomunhu akaipa, ko angararama here? Mabasa ake akarurama aakaita haangatongorangarirwi; nokuda kwokudarika kwake, kwaakadarika nako, nezvivi zvake zvaakaita, achafa nokuda kwazvo.

25 "Asi imi munoti, `Nzira yaIshe haina kururama.' Zvino chinzwai, imi mhuri yavaIsiraeri, nzira yangu haina kururama here? Ko nzira dzenyu hadzizi idzo dzisina kururama here? 26 Kana munhu akarurama akatsauka pakururama kwake, akaita zvakaipa, akafa nokuda kwazvo; achafa nokuda kwezvakaipa zvaakaita. 27 Uyezve, kana munhu akaipa akatsauka pazvakaipa zvake zvaakaita, akazoita zvinorehwa nomurayiro nezvakarurama, achaponesa upenyu hwake.

28 "Zvaakarangarira, akatsauka pakudarika kwake kwose kwaakaita, zvirokwazvo achararama, haangafi. 29 Kunyange zvakadaro, vaIsiraeri vanoti, `Nzira yaIshe haina kururama.' Nhai, mhuri yavaIsiraeri, nzira dzangu hadzina kururama here? Hadzizi nzira dzenyu dzisakarurama here?

30 "Naizvozvo ndichakutongai, imi mhuri yavaIsiraeri, mumwe nomumwe zvakafanira nzira dzake," ndizvo zvinotaura Ishe Jehovha. "Dzokai, mutendeuke pakudarika kwenyu kwose; kuti chirege kuva chigumbuso chezvakaipa kwamuri.

31 Rashai kure nemi kudarika kwenyu kwose, kwamakadarika nako, muzviitire moyo mitsva nemweya mitsva; nokuti muchafireiko, imi mhuri yavaIsiraeri?

32 Nokuti handifariri rufu rwounofa," ndizvo zvinotaura Ishe Jehovha; naizvozvo tendeukai, murarame.
